This has been covered and mostly refuted by other things I have sent.  The mRNA vaccines are a new technology that has been in development for over 10 years.  The COVID-19 mRNA vaccines went through Phase 1, 2, and 3 trials at the same time, passing all three.   There have been over 300 million injections in the United States, and around 3 billion worldwide.  Governments everywhere are tracking adverse reactions, which at most have been about one in a million, making the vaccines safer than my trip to Burger King.

The mRNA is cleared from our bodies in about a day, and the spike proteins are gone in 2 to 3 days.

Did you notice that it says "In Canada and the U.S. it can take 10-25 years of testing before a vaccine is approved"? I don't think we know yet all the consequences of these new vaccines that they only started to formulate 18 months ago when Covid 19 first appeared.

About 50% infected adults in Covid-19 Delta variant outbreak in Israel fully vaccinated: Report | World News - Hindustan Times

About half of the adults who tested positive for the Delta variant of the coronavirus were fully immunized with the Pfizer vaccine, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) on Friday. Also, 90% of the new infections were caused by the Delta variant, the WSJ report showed citing Ran Balicer, who leads an expert advisory panel on Covid-19 for the government.

Meanwhile, children below the age of 12 accounted for about half of the infections and most of them were not vaccinated against the disease, the report also showed.

The outbreak has pushed the Israeli government to reimpose the indoor mask rule and other similar measures to prevent a flare-up in cases due to the highly transmissible strain. Earlier on Friday, the country's health ministry reimposed the rule that required people to wear facemasks in enclosed public spaces following a spike in the number of daily new infections.

The price of Flash drives

Five years ago I wrote:

I think that the first flash drive I owned was either 128 or 256 megabytes. Later I would get a 512 because I had a computer that could record television and I could fit a single program on a 512, which at the time seemed impressive. Now you can purchase 128 gigabyte (128,000 megabyte) flash drives for under $30.

I remember 1-gigabyte drives costing like $90. When my company gave me one I felt privileged. Now you can't even buy them, and no one would want one anyway.

When the IBM computer came out with its first hard drive in the mid-1980s, it was only 5 megabytes and cost a fortune.

Now it is possible to buy a 1TB flash drive for around $180 to $200. However, there seem to be a bunch of cheap ones for sale that are fake.

For $15 to $60 you can get 128GB to 512 GB flash drives which are a better deal.

Best wishes,

Fwd: Navy deploying 11 Aegis interception missiles for ICBMS

The Pentagon's No. 2 official has ordered 11 missile interceptors transferred from research and development for possible deployment on Navy ships in the Pacific or European regions after a test in November indicated they could stop an intercontinental ballistic missile.

In the test, the USS John Finn intercepted a mock ICBM intended to simulate one that could be launched at Hawaii by North Korea. The destroyer, operating near Hawaii, fired off one of the Standard Missile-3 model Block IIA interceptors built by Raytheon Technologies Corp. at the target launched from Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks informed Congress May 27 of her rationale for transferring the interceptors, although she didn't disclose it publicly.

"The missiles have conducted successful intercept tests and their deployment is in the important interest of our national security," Hicks spokesman Jamal Brown said in an email this month. The transfer to the Navy marks the first major missile defense initiative of the Biden administration.

Although the Navy's Aegis combat system, which launched the missile, and the interceptor "were not designed to defeat an ICBM-class target, this test demonstrated some potential limited capability," Vice Admiral Jon Hill, director of the Missile Defense Agency, said in testimony to Congress last week.

The Block IIA is the latest model in the Standard Missile family of weapons. Earlier versions are now the Navy's primary surface-to-air defensive system against short-, medium-, and intermediate-range ballistic missiles threats. The IIA has increased range, more sensitive seeker technology, and an advanced "kill vehicle," or warhead, to intercept medium- and intermediate-range ballistic missiles. Congressional missile defense supporters mandated the November test to determine the missile's capabilities to intercept an ICBM.

Fwd: $4.9 Trillion

From: Larry 

Buried in President Joe Biden's 2022 budget is a document called Historical Tables, which breaks down annual federal revenues and spending in a variety of ways. One of the tables in this document tracks what the government calls "direct payments to individuals."

These payments, mind you, don't count salaries paid to federal employees or the cost of buying equipment. It's just what the name states – direct money transfers. As the budget document explains:

Under Biden, direct payments hit a huge new record high. Think about it this way. At $4.9 trillion, "direct payments to individuals" this year are equal to the entire federal budget of just two years ago. These money transfers will account for 22.3% of the nation's entire GDP.

If this income transfer were a country, it would be bigger than Germany's entire economy and slightly smaller than Japan's.

Worse, the government will have to borrow $1.3 trillion of the money it's transferring. That's like robbing Peter's children and grandchildren to pay Paul.

Nor do these numbers account for Biden's bloated "American Jobs Plan" and "American Families Plan," which would vastly expand the already massive wealth transfer state.

Much of this year's explosion in direct payments came from the COVID-19 relief bills, with Biden's bloated $1.9 trillion "rescue" plan adding to the pile.

The murder of an American Nazi


This is sad.  It seems possible to me that an apparently crazy father would have a crazy son.

I find it disturbing that otherwise normal-looking people would be neo-nazis.  It makes me think that the father would have been abusive.  It is hard to have much sympathy for him.

3 inventive rescues of the ACA

In his dissent, Alito called out the various times the Supreme Court has now ruled on the law and found ways to keep it in place.

"Today's decision is the third installment in our epic Affordable Care Act trilogy, and it follows the same pattern as installments one and two. In all three episodes, with the Affordable Care Act facing a serious threat, the Court has pulled off an improbable rescue," Alito wrote.
"No one can fail to be impressed by the lengths to which this Court has been willing to go to defend the ACA against all threats. A penalty is a tax. The United States is a State. And 18 States who bear costly burdens under the ACA cannot even get a foot in the door to raise a constitutional challenge," the veteran conservative justice added.
"So a tax that does not tax is allowed to stand and support one of the biggest Government programs in our Nation's history. Fans of judicial inventiveness will applaud once again, he added. "But I must respectfully dissent."

St. Louis couple Mark, Patricia McCloskey pay fines, lose guns in guilty plea over encounter with rioters

Mark and Patricia McCloskey, two attorneys in their 60s, were charged in the summer of 2020 after a swarm of Black Lives Matter protesters broke down an iron gate and ignored a "No Trespassing" sign on their private street. The couple said they felt threatened and armed themselves before heading outside to warn off the crowd, which was on its way to the former mayor's home. No one was hurt.

"They dropped all the weapons charges and they charged me with the lowest level of misdemeanor, which is something called assault four, which alleges that I purposely placed at least one other person in apprehension of immediate physical injury," Mark McCloskey told Fox News over the phone after returning from court Thursday. "I said, 'Well, I guess I did. That was all point of the guns.'"

What is the point of legal gun ownership if you can't use them to defend yourself nor your property?

Ex-CDC director Redfield says he received death threats after mentioning lab-leak theory

Robert Redfield, the former head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told Vanity Fair he received death threats after an appearance on CNN in March where he said he believed COVID-19 may have escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.

He told the magazine that "death threats flooded his inbox" from "prominent scientists," some of whom were former friends. 

"I was threatened and ostracized because I proposed another hypothesis," he said. "I expected it from politicians. I didn't expect it from science."

The Vanity Fair report said that back in January 2020, Redfield received a troubling message from Dr. George Fu Gao, the head of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Gao warned him about sickened individuals in Wuhan. The report said "Redfield immediately offered to send a team of specialists to investigate" because he had suspicions about the Wuhan Institute of Virology. If a team found antibodies in blood samples of workers there, that would be convincing evidence. China refused, he said.



China State Media Says Country Must Prepare for Nuclear War With U.S. After Biden Asks for COVID Probe

Technically Biden Canceled the State departments Covid probe, that would have been transparent and maybe lead to sanctions and/or penalties.
The Intelligence probe will probably not reveal its' findings and not penalize China.

Fwd: Covid Treatments

Much of the illness associated with COVID-19 is due to the intense inflammatory and immune response that can occur with an infection. The most successful treatments so far have targeted this overzealous immune response.

Taken early in the disease, the inhaled corticosteroid budesonide has been shown to reduce the development of more severe disease.

In people hospitalised with COVID-19 requiring oxygen, the oral corticosteroid dexamethasone reduces the likelihood of death.

In the most severe cases — COVID patients admitted to ICU — the anti-inflammatory tocilizumab administered intravenously gives a person a better chance of survival.

But these treatments don't target SARS-CoV-2 itself; just the consequences of infection. Directly targeting the virus has proven to be more difficult

SARS-CoV-2 carries an enzyme, 3C-like protease (3CLpro), which plays a crucial role in the replication process. This protease is almost identical to the protease used by the SARS-CoV-1 (SARS) virus, and similar to the protease used by the Middle Eastern Respiratory Virus (MERS).

So a drug that could effectively target 3CLpro and prevent virus replication could be beneficial against multiple known coronaviruses, and possibly any that emerge in the future.

Pfizer/BioNtech are taking two drugs to clinical trials for COVID-19: PF-07304814, an intravenous injection for use in patients hospitalised with severe COVID-19 and PF-07321332, an oral agent, or pill, that could potentially be used earlier in the disease. Both are formulations of a 3CLpro inhibitor.
