The Indian Bar Association is suing the Indian WHO member who was promoting anti-Ivermectin disinformation that saw an Indian state ban Ivermectin as a Covid treatment and that subsequently had huge death tolls not seen in the Ivermectin-using states with some form of negligence.


Indian Bar Association Sues WHO Scientist for the Murder of Indian Citizens by Misleading them about Ivermectin

The Indian Bar Association (IBA) sued WHO Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan on May 25, accusing her in a 71-point brief of causing the deaths of Indian citizens by misleading them about Ivermectin.

Point 56 states, “That your misleading tweet on May 10, 2021, against the use of Ivermectin had the effect of the State of Tamil Nadu withdrawing Ivermectin from the protocol on May 11, 2021, just a day after the Tamil Nadu government had indicated the same for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.”

MASKS: According to the CDC, the chances of a minor in America surviving COVID-19 is 99.99997%. And a study by the American Academy of Pediatrics suggested transmission of the virus at school was “extremely rare.”

In November the 50th anniversary (one year late) edition of Let It Be is being released.

One of the things it will contain is a copy of the album the Beatles originally wanted to release, called Get Back. It was supposed to be a throwback to 50s rock and their early 1960s sound.

The proposed cover for Get Back eventually became the cover of Beatles 1967-1970.

I keep thinking back to those couple of cruise ships at the beginning of the pandemic that had thousands of passengers on board and COVID was making its way through. Not everyone even got COVID, even though tight-quarters like a cruise ship should be the perfect breeding ground.

I think a more honest reckoning would include research into why some people on those ships didn't get it, and extrapolate those %'s over the general population to say X% are able to fight off COVID successfully despite no vaccination or prior infection.

‘Superhuman’ Immunity To COVID-19
Stephen Green, PJ Media, Sep 8, 2021

UNBREAKABLE: New Studies Find Evidence Of ‘Superhuman’ Immunity To COVID-19 In Some Individuals. “Over the past several months, a series of studies has found that some people mount an extraordinarily powerful immune response against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19. Their bodies produce very high levels of antibodies, but they also make antibodies with great flexibility — likely capable of fighting off the coronavirus variants circulating in the world but also likely effective against variants that may emerge in the future.”

Just got through with a site visit from a Medal of Honor recipient.

Michael John Fitzmaurice

Fitzmaurice joined the United States Army from his birth city of Jamestown, North Dakota, and by March 23, 1971 was serving as a specialist four in Troop D, 2nd Squadron, 17th Cavalry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division.

During a firefight on that day, in Khe Sanh, Republic of Vietnam, Fitzmaurice smothered the blast of an enemy-thrown explosive charge with his flak vest and body to protect other soldiers. Seriously wounded and partially blinded by the blast, he then continued to fight the enemy. After his rifle was damaged by a second explosive blast, Fitzmaurice proceeded to acquire another rifle from a Viet Cong sniper, defeating him with his bare hands, and continued to fight, refusing medical evacuation.

Fitzmaurice survived his wounds and was subsequently awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions.

It was hard to hear him over the clanging sound of his brass balls.

And now I'm stuck with sand in my hair from Blackhawk rotor wash.

Still...beats working this morning. :)

Why You Only Hear One Side Of The Debate Over Life’s Origin

When academia, public schools, and Big Tech suppress scientific information challenging evolution, it's no wonder public support for evolution is growing.

More than 1,100 scientists have signed a list agreeing they are “skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life.” As a scientist, I’ve signed that list. But as an attorney, I can attest that many of these scientists — and others who are afraid to sign the list — face discrimination because they won’t toe the Darwinian line.

Donald Trump Jr. Thinks He Knows Why Joe Biden Eats So Much Ice Cream…Could Nancy Pelosi Have A Freezer Full of Ice Cream For Same Reason?

On April 21, the Daily Caller revealed that a whopping $11,000 ice cream expenditure was discovered on the campaign’s FEC filing.… That’s a lot of ice cream—even for Joe Biden!

Last night, on Instagram, Donald Trump Jr. shared some interesting information about how ice cream is “good for dementia.”

Trump Jr wrote, “It all makes sense now…” along with a short blurb about how “ice cream is far more effective and safe than Prozac for people with dementia.”…
