  3. So what you’re saying is the CDC and the vaccine makers have been misleading the public yet again.

    “Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine converts to DNA inside human liver cells, new study

    The Swedish study suggests the vaccine is capable of becoming DNA, which is what the CDC claimed would not happen.”

    https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/coronavirus/pfizer-covid-19-vaccine-converts-dna-inside-human-liver-cells-according

    “he messenger RNA from Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine reportedly can enter human liver cells and be converted into DNA, contrary to what the CDC has said.

    A study by Swedish scientists finds that when the vaccine’s mRNA enters human liver cells it triggers a number of reactions that yield a reverse transcription that turns the mRNA into spike DNA, according to the Epoch Times.

    The scientists, in their study published in the journal Current Issues of Molecular Biology, state that they have found “evidence that COVID-19 mRNA vaccine BNT162b2 is able to enter the human liver cell line Huh7 in vitro.”

    They write that BNT162b2 (the Pfizer vaccine), is reverse transcribed inside human liver cells as quickly as six hours after injection.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that the reverse transcription process is something that would not happen, The Epoch Times also reports.

    Under a CDC site page “Myths and Facts about COVID-19 Vaccines,” the agency writes, “The genetic material delivered by mRNA vaccines never enters the nucleus of your cells. … COVID-19 vaccines do not change or interact with your DNA in any way.”

    Pfizer said only that its vaccine does not alter the human genome.”

  4. Why do the only solutions from Democrats and their media mouthpieces involve sending billions to the worlds worst regimes, instead of drilling for what we have here?

    They are the Russian and Iranians despots best friends. (Possibly the Uranians too if Biden is to be believed)

  6. Unqualified and unsuitable.

    https://nypost.com/2022/03/03/verdict-on-ketanji-supreme-ly-heartless/

    “While running for the presidency in 2020, Joe Biden promised to appoint the first black, female Supreme Court justice. In January when a place opened up on the court, he repeated that pledge. To only murmurs of concern. Is this really how things have to work in America?

    Last week the president announced that he was going to put forward Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for the lifetime appointment. Democrats were thrilled. Most Republicans saw a trap and kept away. Almost no one dug any deeper. But they should.

    Because if they did, they would find out a number of things. Not just that there are far better qualified candidates, including better qualified black female candidates. But that Jackson’s own career shows she is unsuitable for the role.

    It is now eight years since Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 crashed into the sea, killing all 239 people on board. Among them was one American man, Philip Wood, a 50-year-old IBM executive from Texas.

    In the traumatic months after the crash, Wood’s family sought to gain justice for their family in the courts. They imagined the American court system would help them. They were wrong.

    They first brought their case against Malaysia Airlines and Boeing in the state court of Illinois. But as they began to go through the slow grind of the US justice system, they found themselves completely abandoned. The case ended up being bundled with a set of other cases in something called an MDL (multi-district litigation) that ended up going to DC. And it was there that Judge Ketanji Jackson was assigned the case.

    By this stage, three years after the death of their father, the family thought they had a ray of light. As Wood’s eldest son told me this week, “The lawyers thought, just like I’m sure Biden and the Democrats think, that oh, this is a great thing. Here’s a female. She’s a public defender.” She might want to stand up for “the little guy.”

    Far from it. As the family were to discover, Jackson was on the side of big business.

    From the get-go, Jackson treated the case with indifference and a sloppy lack of attention, Wood claims. Lawyers said they expected judgment to take a few months. More than 13 months went by before a judgment came. It was filled with flaws. First, according to the family, it was not just terse, but largely copy-and-pasted from the brief Jackson had been given. She dismissed the family’s case, saying it was better tried in Malaysia than America. Perhaps knowing how unpopular it could be, she released her judgment just before Thanksgiving, when the story would be buried.

    “The United States’ strong public interest in securing a legal remedy for its citizens,” Jackson wrote, “is nonetheless overshadowed by Malaysia’s overwhelming interest in the resolution of claims concerning this national disaster.”

    Horrible precedent
    From her dismissive judgment, the family had no doubt where the judge’s sympathies lay. Nor that she was playing a careful political game of her own as she looked for a seat on the Supreme Court.

    “She knew exactly what she was doing,” said Nick Wood, now 32. “She waited until the 2018 election to release a very pro-business ruling, which granted the defense’s request for a dismissal of our case.”

    According to Woods, she addressed none of the underlying issues, and simply barred an American family from having the right to pursue justice through the American courts for the loss of an American citizen. Having spent a couple hundred thousand dollars trying to seek justice (money they would not have had if their father had not taken out a life insurance policy), Jackson’s ruling meant they had to resort to the Malaysian courts if they ever wanted to get a hearing. A fine prospect.”

    The consequence of Jackson’s judgment may not be limited to one family. Pending a higher court review, her judgment can be seen as precedent and so reflects on any other American seeking justice for the loss or injury of a loved one abroad.

    This means that any other American family who suffered as the Wood family did will find themselves in exactly the same position. Of being essentially helpless in the eyes of the law. The family are understandably bitter.

    Contemplating Jackson heading to the highest court in the land, Nick Wood said this week, “Everything that she stands for and exists for, I believe, is a lie. She has the right skin color, according to President Biden’s requirements. She has the right-sounding name. She went to the right schools.

    She is the perfect example of the nepotistic “swamp,” according to Wood. “I’ll never be able to find out what happened to my father, since she didn’t grant us US-style discovery. An American judge shouldn’t be able to force an American family suing an American company to a foreign court by simply saying, ‘Well, that’s a “more convenient” forum.’ Convenient for whom — for Boeing? That’s never been done before. And it sets a horrible precedent for every citizen in the United States, for anyone seeking justice for a loved one who was killed.”

    “She’s either lazy, calculating, or both,” Wood said. “A political ­opportunist.”

  11. From NYT:

    BREAKING NEWS
    Russia blocked access to Facebook and threatened up to 15 years in prison for those who stray from the state narrative on the war in Ukraine.

    The clampdown on free speech is more aggressive than at any other point in President Vladimir V. Putin’s 22 years in power.

    Seems like this thing could go (further) sideways in a bad way at any time, we’re in precarious times.

    Wars We Don’t Choose
    MARCH 4, 2022 BY GENE VEITH

    As Ukrainians bravely defended their country from the Russian invasion, I’m not aware of any Americans of any faction–conservative, neo-conservative, liberal, progressive, Democrat or Republican–that wants the United States to get into a war with Russia.

    Maybe there is someone, but I haven’t heard about it. Opinions vary, with most people appalled at Putin’s actions but some defending them, some blaming Biden and some blaming Trump, some wanting to impose harsh sanctions against Russia and pour military aid to the Ukrainian resistance, and some saying that they don’t care what happen to Ukraine. Some Americans are strict isolationists, holding to George Washington’s admonition that we should avoid all “foreign entanglements.”

    I understand all of that. These are legitimate positions for consideration and debate. But I want to ask a different question: What if we are attacked? That is to say, what if our American troops in Europe, such as those stationed in the Baltic Republics, are bombed or fired upon by the Russians? …

    … This is why I say that, whatever our views on the matter, we need to steel ourselves for the possibility.
