Once Again, The One And Only Post

October 17, 2021

I hate being played.

CIA “Accidentally” Leaves Live Explosives On Louden County Special-Needs School Bus

Yes they did. It’s true.

I saw this as a link somewhere this morning (Instapundit) saying how the CIA planted C-4 under the hood of a school bus in Louden County as a training exercise for their sniffer dogs. And then some of the plastic explosive slipped, and they missed it when removing the stuff after the exercise. And then gave the bus back to the school district, who drove it around for several days (with special needs kids onboard I gather) before anybody noticed. Their solution to this utterly inept log-out/log-back-in materials handling screw-up was to write “pick up all the C-4” on bright pink Post-It notes. Seriously.

Given the current situation in Louden County VA, the school board there covering up two rapes in the bathrooms to protect their gender fluid philosophy, given everyone’s awareness that the government is beyond arrogant these days, and that the parents who objected to that are now “domestic terrorists”, given that the government has been bald-facedly lying to us 24-7 for many years and ramped it up even further with the pandemic, given that the “Whitmer kidnapping plot” was largely a false flag op, as most of the people involved were either undercover FBI guys or paid FBI informants, given that the January 6th thing was also largely a false flag op to push the government’s agenda ... it is a natural conclusion that this was also a dirty government trick that got found out. And then covered up, or watered down.

Some of the more aware might be wondering why the CIA is operating within the borders of the USA, which is not what they’re supposed to do. Or why they even have, or train, bomb sniffer dogs. Not their job.

But this actually happened in March of 2016. FIVE AND A HALF YEARS AGO.

The discomfort you may feel is your chain being pulled, once again.

Itacolumite, the flexible rock

image

Ever seen a piece of rock bend? Itacolumite is unique kind of sandstone that does when cut into thin strips. If a foot-long piece, a few centimeters thick, is supported at its ends it will gradually bend by its own weight. If it is then turned over it will straighten and bend in the opposite direction. Flakes a millimeter or two thick can be bent between the fingers and are said to give out a creaking sound.

The rock was first discovered in Mt. Itacolumi, hence named Itacolumite, in Minas Gerais, Brazil in 1822.

Florida: Come On Down, No Backlog At Our Ports !!

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - You may have been surprised to see bare shelves and product shortages in supermarkets, retail stores and even restaurants in recent weeks.

The coronavirus pandemic has triggered a global supply chain problem. As of Sunday, an estimated 500,000 shipping containers were sitting on cargo ships off the Southern California coast. Ports in Los Angeles and Long Beach, California, recently broke records for the number of cargo ships waiting to dock. Those ships are carrying a variety of products for the American market, everything from sneakers to toys, to toilet paper.

So, Florida is putting out the word to shipping companies that ports in the Sunshine State are open and ready for business.

“Florida is where your success comes in, and our seaports are the solution to ensure the cargo shipping logjam doesn’t become the Grinch that stole Christmas,” said Michael Rubin, President and CEO of the Florida Ports Council.

Florida leaders say California is no longer the most efficient way to move goods to the East Coast or even the Midwest. They say Florida is the answer.

“Why pay to moor off the coast of California, when Florida shipping lanes are open and serving as the gateway for getting goods to America’s market,” Rubin said in a press release.

Things are getting better in Boston but one new crane won’t solve the problem.

The port of Savannah Georgia is getting it under control too.

Not so good in New York though.

What’s causing all this mess?

The Green Nude Eel. Seriously!!
Covid.
China.
Unions.
Mandates.
Too much reliance on “just in time” delivery systems that shunt the storage costs onto somebody else.
Rising fuel costs.
Extended unemployment benefits.

Out of the blue, and into the black. And then back into the blue again. (While staying in the Blue the whole time, until he got back to the green. Costs lots of green too. )

What Goes Up Must Come Down. Even Captain Kirk.

Bill Shatner, 90, takes a ride to the edge of space. Oldest guy to ever go up in a rocket.

Hollywood actor William Shatner has become the oldest person to go to space as he blasted off aboard the Blue Origin sub-orbital capsule.

The 90-year-old, who played Captain James T Kirk in the Star Trek films and TV series, took off from the Texas desert with three other individuals.

Mr Shatner’s trip on the rocket system - developed by Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos - lasted about 10 minutes. The craft safely landed just after 10:00 local time (16:00 BST).

Those aboard got to experience a short period of weightlessness as they climbed to a maximum altitude just above 100km (60 miles). From there they were able to see the curvature of the Earth through the capsule’s big windows.

“Everybody in the world needs to do this,” the Canadian actor told Mr Bezos after landing back on Earth. “It was unbelievable.”

In tears, he added: “What you have given me is the most profound experience. I’m so filled with emotion about what just happened. I hope I never recover from this. I hope I can retain what I feel now. I don’t want to lose it.”



Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, --and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of --Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air…
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.




In case you’re wondering, 100km up is what’s called the Karman Line, the border between the upper Mesosphere and the lower Thermosphere layers of the far upper atmoosphere. That’s about where the Aurora Borealis lives, so if you go past that, you’re officially in space. Well, according to most of us. Those cheaters in the US Air Force drop the title “astronaut” on anyone who goes up more than 80km. And to be blunt, the Karman Line isn’t “real” space, the endless empty frozen zero gravity vacuum with a rare hydrogen atom bopping along. That’s 1000s of km above the Earth. The Karman Line is merely the ultimate altitude any airplane could ever reach, because there’s no air left to give lift to the wings. That’s why we have rockets. Gravity at that point is about 70% of what we have on the surface.

Quercetin Is A Great Antivral And Ionophore

image

https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2021/10/14/quercetin-improves-covid-outcomes.aspx

It’s amazing the number of diseases this stuff can help with. Polio. Pnuemonia. Hepatitis. Colds. Flu. On and on. Another case of natural ancient medicine finally being proven right by Science after all these years. And then concentrated.

For the “But Covid”, quercetin was identified as a potential spike protein blocker by the SUMMIT supercomputer research project back in the early days of the pandemic. Then it was found to be an ionosphore, a zinc uptake helper, when the whole hissy fit over HCQ was going on.

The thing is, quercetin is hard to absorb. Enter liposomals, a variety of methods of coating or binding medicines, vitamins, or supplements with fat. Lipids. Usually sunflower lecithin.  Your body is real good at absorbing fat, so the vitamins or medicines sneak right on in. Which is why you eat a bacon cheeseburger with some avocado when you take Ivermectin. This can raise the absorption rate many times; for quercetin anywhere from 12X to 50X, depending on the method and the mix.

The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the cause of the ongoing global pandemic known as COVID-19. Based on the potential antiviral role of quercetin, and on its described anti-blood clotting, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, we hypothesize that subjects with mild COVID-19 treated with Quercetin Phytosome® (QP), a novel bioavailable form of quercetin, may have a shorter time to virus clearance, a milder symptomatology, and higher probabilities of a benign earlier resolution of the disease.

I think phytosomes fall under the liposomal category. Similar idea.

The downside to this upside is that the vitamin companies charge you nearly 12 times as much for their enhanced product.  My question is whether you can get the same effect, or something close to it, just by taking regular quercetin with some sunflower lecithin and some piperine. ( Piperine is an extract of black pepper, and works as an anti-imflammatory. People with arthritis take it along withe the coQ10 and the MSM/Glucosamine/Chondritin and the curcumin. )

Naturally, to get the most out of the ionophore effect of this supplement, you’ll want to take some zinc and vitamin C.

Bowling Blogging !!

Well, we totally sucked last night. Even with TJ as a sub - the guy whose team fried my team in the finals at summer league - we couldn’t even make our team average in any of the games. And we gave 171 pins to our opponents. Who weren’t even there and will have to post-bowl later.

The other team wasn’t there, nor was another team that they bowled against last week, because one of the guys on one of those teams is suddenly in the hospital with pneumonia and maybe Covid. Aw crivens, here we go again. I’m concerned, because the guys we were supposed to bowl last night are the old dudes on the team I was on the last couple years. Guys in their 80s. I don’t know if the guy in the hospital is one of them. I hope not, and wish a speedy and easy recovery to whoever it is.

Old Guys League doesn’t usually allow post-bowling, but with this But Covid, we’ve gone through this before. We have a process for dealing with it. And that’s part of why I post on this shit so damn much. It’s out there, and it hits the people I know. So far it’s only taken out one of them, God willing and cross your fingers.

Vilmar’s blog has been put on ice. Yes, I am looking into it. Will update as soon as I can.

I just hope he didn’t speak up at a school board meeting.

UPDATE: The ever so tolerant and inclusive Woke Left got him. Even though he did his best to filter out their false flag psycho comments, it looks like they went crying to mommy (WordPress) over some that got through, or over his content, and that was all that it took. I am seeing this going on at several right leaning blogs that I’ve followed for years. It’s the new Lawfare, yet another way to silence the opposition.

So for now at least, the Antz in your Pantz have been stomped on. Hope he got his pantz off first!!

Vilmar and Allen started the BMEWS blog here many many years ago, then later went in different directions. Allen passed away years later. Mr. Christian took it over for a short while, and then handed it to me, and I’ve been running it for 15? years now. So of course I offered Vilmar the chance to post here once again if he wants, but he’s going to take a breather at least for a little while. Blogging can eat up every hour of your life, and it’s amazing the things you can get done when you don’t have this digital ball and chain albatross around your neck. Stuff like laundry, and cleaning the cat pan. Important things!

Just call me Mr. Diversity.

Wifely helped make a batch of kimchi Saturday and brought home 2 quart Ball jars of it. Each jar filled to the brim. It cabbage, and it ferments. That means it gives off CO2. Which means it needs to be vented, or “burped”, once in a while. She may have done this a couple times already, but I did it today and I’m glad I had the jars inside a big mixing bowl. As I unsealed each one it spat out at least half a cup of red stinky juice. I pushed the cabbage mix back down firmly and poured the rest of the juice back in, then put the screw caps back on and rinsed the jars off and washed my hands several times.  Yet here I am, smelling like kimchi. Must have got some on my clothes. Joy.

image

I’m thinking that a one or two gallon plastic jar, like the kind the giant institutional size mayonnaise comes in, would be a better thing to use as a fermenter. And put one of those airlock things in the lid, like for making wine or beer. Or at least leave enough room at the top of whatever jar for the gasses.

Meanwhile, I’m looking up taeyangcho gochugaro online, which is the sun dried red pepper flakes used in this stuff. I’m thinking we might be making kimchi all the time, and maybe a spicier version of the wimpy stuff they sell in regular grocery stores.

I don’t think the stuff she mixed up will be spicy enough. Wait and see, right?



UPDATE: I think this is going to be a garage project if we do more of it. Let’s just say the aroma is rather permeating ...

Texas Governor Abbot EO Bans Mandates

On Monday, Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order that bans COVID-19 vaccine mandates from being implemented by any “entity in Texas”, which includes private businesses.

This follows the Governor’s previous order banning vaccine mandates by state government officials and entities and further underscores his intention to prevent any type of forced requirements in Texas.

The governor also urged state lawmakers to pass a similar ban into law.

...

Abbott’s executive order reads, “No entity in Texas can compel receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine by any individual, including an employee or a consumer, who objects to such vaccination for any reason of personal conscience, based on a religious belief, or for medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19.”

“The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus, but should remain voluntary and never forced,” Abbott also said.

In August, Abbott issued an executive order that banned any government entity from instituting mandates. This new order extends that ban to all businesses, including private ones.



Let freedom ring. At least in Texas.

Jamaica: Wink Wink, Nudge Nudge, “Parasites”, Right?

Covid cases in Jamaica dropping like a rock. Health minister imported 100,000 doses of Ivermectin, promising they were only for parasites. The pills are super easy to get hold of, even though they are tightly controlled in theory. But Jamaicans are a practical and compassionate people, so things happen when nobody is looking. Hospitals aren’t so strict there either; patient’s family’s are sneaking the pills in.

Vaccination remains at about 10-15%. Pressuring the people to get the jabs makes them even more stubborn. Government had to throw away 50,000 doses of the vax because nobody wants it. Another half million jabs sitting around on ice.

Big Med Must Find This Particularly Galling

Imagine Growing A 99.2% Effective Covid Treatment In Your Own Backyard

The Asian herb Green Chiretta, formal name andrographis paniculata, known in Thialand as Fah Talai Jone has been a part of ancient traditional Chinese, Indian, and other Asian natural medicines for centuries. It is used to reduce swelling in everything from respiratory illness to snakebite.

A study done in Thailand, using pills of the stuff on 11,800 inmates, found that when given within 3 days of a positive test or the first signs of symptoms, there was a 99.02% recovery rate and a very rapid reduction in symptoms. Thai prisons aren’t exactly famous for their spacious and hygienic conditions, so when the ‘rona hit the cell blocks the viral spread was rapid and monumental. And this ground up dried weed did the job.

This stuff is NOT “both a floor wax and a desert topping”. It is not a prophylaxis, and it is not for later stage treatment. But for early onset cases, it’s just right.

The first news release was in January 2020, at a Thai language news site

image




Oddly, the hyper-aware western news fact checkers hit on this and said it was no good, before western media was aware. Because we all read and write the Thai language, right? From February 2020:

n article published by a Thai media site claims that a herb cultivated in southeast Asia, andrographis paniculata or “green chiretta”, can prevent and relieve symptoms of the novel coronavirus. The claim is misleading; Thai health experts said there is no scientific evidence that the herb can boost immunity or relieve the symptoms of the novel coronavirus.

Ten months later, after they did the prison study, Thailand approved the herb as an effective and very inexpensive treatment. In December 2020. And it made the western news at the time. It was ignored, of course.

BANGKOK (BLOOMBERG) - Thailand’s health ministry approved the use of a herbal plant extract to treat early stages of Covid-19 as a pilot programme amid a flare-up in the coronavirus outbreak in the South-east Asian nation.

Andrographis paniculata, commonly known as green chiretta, will serve as an alternative treatment to reduce the severity of the outbreak and cut treatment costs, the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday (Dec 30).



Then it made the western news this past July.

Thailand’s health officials on Tuesday approved the use of green chiretta (Fah Talai Jone) to treat asymptomatic Covid-19 patients after the Corrections Department reported success giving it to infected prison inmates.

Deputy government spokeswoman Rachada Dhnadirek said green chiretta contains andrographolide, a substance that protects cells from the virus and reduces its multiplication. The Corrections Department gave green chiretta to about 11,800 infected inmates, she said, and 99.02% of them recovered.

According to the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation, asymptomaticpatients should consume 180 milligrammes of andrographolide per day, or 60mg per meal, she said.

Meanwhile, as the delta variant of covid-19 continues its deadly surge throughout Thailand people have begun to hoarding green chiretta powder (fah talai jone) over its medicinal purposes in the fight against covid-19.

Known in Thailand as (fah talai jone) green chiretta has been in the spotlight following the surge in Covid-19 infection cases across Thailand. High in andrographolide that can kill some viruses, the Thai herb has been used to cure sicknesses like the flu, sore throat and infection in Asian countries such as China, India and Thailand for centuries.

And now it’s news again, October 2021.

Just a couple months ago, Thailand’s national cabinet actually approved green chiretta for use in people with asymptomatic or mild COVID-19 infections following a successful study in the prison system here. Most of the nation’s jails now use the herbal remedy with a remarkable track record to the study—90.02% that took the drug got better. These are better results than Molnupiravir, ivermectin, favipiravir, and remdesivir (the latter in a hospital setting). While the drug isn’t a silver bullet nor cure, it may be just what the doctor ordered to treat the 90% of COVID-19 cases that are simply asymptomatic or mild in nature. While the data must still be substantiated, this could be game-changing, bombshell information.

and

Coronavirus infection successfully treated with ‘cheap and effective’ herbal remedy

CATCHING coronavirus - whether you are vaccinated or not - can lead to a fever, coughing and feeling unwell. A mild infection has been shown to be eased by the use of a herbal remedy.

Green chiretta – a traditional herbal remedy used in Thailand – has been approved by the country’s government as an “effective and cheap” herbal treatment to treat coronavirus. Thailand’s government claims that a successful trial, conducted in prisons, shows that out of 11,800 inmates who took green chiretta to treat coronavirus, 99.02 percent recovered. Jail medic Chitsanuphong Saublaongiw said: “Green chiretta has a substance called andrographolide.”



The thing is, andrographolide has been under study by western medical research for at least 4 years.

Recently, the use of plant-derived medicines is increasing interest in the prevention and treatment of a variety of disorders including metabolic syndromes. Metabolic syndrome is one of the major risk factors for cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and incidence of mortality worldwide. Scientific evidence suggests that Andrographis paniculata and its derived components, especially andrographolide (AGL) and its analogs/derivatives have a broad spectrum of biological activities. This review aims to sketch the activity of AGL and its analogs/derivatives against the components of metabolic syndromes such as diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and obesity.

Wait, what? It stops the Covid, controls diabetes, lowers blood pressure, and cuts obesity? Maybe it is a floor wax and a dessert topping after all!

Andrographolide, the principal bioactive chemical constituent of Andrographis paniculata (Acanthaceae), has already been established as a prospective pharmaceutical entity. This labdane diterpenoid lactone exhibits a wide range of biological activities including promising antidiabetic potential.

And it might also work against liver disease and pancreatic cancer. And hepatitis. Holy cow.

Andrographolide is a diterpenoid lactone obtained from A. paniculata Nees. (Kalmegh), which is widely used in Indian medicine as a bitter tonic, for snake bite and for the treatment of hepatitis. Because of its extreme bitterness, it is also called “king of bitters.” The principal constituents are 14-deoxy-11-dehydroandrographolide, 14-deoxy-11-oxoandrographolide, andrographolide, andrographine, neoandrographolide, panicoline, paniculide-A, paniculide-B, and paniculide-C (Fig. 44.5). A. paniculata is an important constituent of many of the herbal polyherbal formulations marketed in India. Experimental studies have shown that andrographolide may help in liver regeneration. This may stem from its cholinomimetic property and resultant stimulation of insulin secretion

So, these dried leaves from a worthless common unpatentable roadside weed, used for centuries by those stupid brown and yellow poor people in the Turd World, “the king of bitters” looks like it has super broad medicinal potential. That’s the truly galling thing to Big Med.

[ in case you’ve forgotten, gall is a biblically old term for bitterness, both the taste and the emotion ]

Now just you wait until next month, when SCIENCE and MEDICINE rediscover peptoids once again.

Feel like we’re going in circles yet?

late night Sunday posting for Monday morning



Happy Early Columbus Day

Columbus Day comes a day early this year. Back in 1971 the feds messed up all the holidays with their Monday Holiday thing, thus watering the importance of the days down to nothing more than a 3 day weekend. I recall being really peeved at the time; at 11 years old I had always had my birthday, Veteran’s Day, off from school. The nerve of them, making me go to school on my B-day. Who cares if all the other kids had to? I was special.

So anyway, Old Christobo bumped into San Salvador island on October 12, 1492. The island was called Watlings Island until politics got in the way in 1925. They stole the name from nearby Cat Island, 50 miles WNW, which had been called San Salvador for centuries.  Couldn’t use the native name Guanahini, doncha know. This is a nice little island, with the most fresh water ponds for the size of the place of any island in the Bahamas. After quenching their thirst and finding nothing of value, they sailed west again, probably meandering over to Rum Cay, just over the horizon to the SW. Perhaps scaling the gigantic mountains there - a whole 120 feet above sea level - allowed them to see the much larger Long Island, which they arrived at on October 17. There’s a nice monument there atop a hill at the very north end of the island. I’ve been there; it’s lovely and forlorn, yet just 1 1/2 miles back down the island is the Santa Maria Beach Resort, and the most gorgeous and calm beach you will ever see. Great restaurant too. Sadly, Columbus had to make his own conch chowder. Going west from there he would have found Exuma next, a mere 30 miles further on. That one probably took some careful navigation to get past, as Exuma has a chain of little bitty islands stretching out over 140 miles. It’s just day’s sail from there to Cuba where he made landfall October 28, but then it looks like old Chris made a wrong turn and landed in Haiti instead on December 6. If he’d turned right instead, he would have hit Miami, and everything would be different.

Bloody Vikings

1,000 Years Later And They’re Still Causing Problems In UK

One viking ship takes out an entire Scottish village. Crivens, won’t the nightmare ever end??

image

The replica vessel was in Kirkcudbright as part of celebrations for the arrival of the Galloway treasure hoard at the town’s galleries.

It was being taken to a local primary school at about 10:30 when its mast became tangled in an overhead power line on St Mary Street.

Greg Collier-Jones, maritime officer with re-enactment group Regia Anglorum, apologised for any inconvenience they had caused.

“Overnight we displayed the boat in the church yard, lit up, and we had loads of people come round and look at her and be really impressed,” he said.

“This morning we were moving her from the church yard to the primary school to do a display.

“We decided - just to keep our time down and make sure we turned up in absolute style - we were going to turn up with the mast up.”

“We scouted the route to make sure there were no low bridges but we failed to think about power cables,” he said.

Galloway is an area on the southwestern shore of Scotland, in a larger area known as The Stewartry, which was actually The Stewartry of Kirkcugbright, an older name for the county of Kirkcudbrightshire, and thus a locally governed zone. This was abolished some years back, but the name stuck. Kirkcudbright is due south of there, not far from the ocean, which is properly the Irish Sea, but their part is called the Solway Firth. Galloway is not to be confused with Galway, which is in western Ireland on Galway Bay.

Anyway, a short bit north of the village of Kirkcudbright is Balmaghie, the land of the McGhee clan. Yes, “McGhee” not “MacGhee” even though they are Scots. And it was in Balmaghie that the Galloway Hoard was found.

The Galloway Hoard is a Viking era treasure trove, a small cache of silver bullion, objects, jewelry, glass beads, ivory and cloth and a bit of gold, buried around AD 900. No weapons at all. It even has a bit of silk in it, the earliest find of this cloth in Scotland. Not sure, but perhaps the silk was inside the famous Galloway Hoard Vessel, which is a small lidded silver pot that is probably from the Sasanian Empire (early Persia, aka Iran) and was several hundred years old by the time it was buried, as was the wool the pot was carefully wrapped in. Silver corrodes over time, leather and cloth rot away. But those things in this hoard were very well wrapped up when they were carefully buried, so they survived in amazingly good condition.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A think a story sort of about Vikings and their buried treasure counts as archaeology, so even though it isn’t Thursday ...

image

And for all I know, she’s actually Scottish. But who knows, and those bloody Vikings got everywhere, which is why you can still find redheads in Istanbul, which was still Constantinople when they were there.

Covid Crap

Don’t Worry Baby, I’ll Just Put The Tip In

Indonesia approves Chinese Zifivax dimeric Covid-19 vaccine

Ok, it’s too early in the morning for me to hunt up a lot of graphics, so you’ll just have to use your imagination. I think I’m creating a metaphor here, but it’s too early in the morning for me to remember all the proper terms for types of words. What. Evah.

Picture a socket wrench. You probably have several of them rattling around the house. I know that if I were to ever ever ever get all my tools organized, I’d probably have a dozen of them. Super useful tools that let you attach all kinds of wrench heads and driver tips to one handle.

Ok, the socket wrench is the SARS CoV-2 virus. All the different style handles are the variants. There is a very short handled kind of socket wrench, usually called a stubby. Super useful in tight quarters. Think of a stubby as the spike protein.


image

A flex handle stubby. Great tool to have on hand, just in case.



Out at the end of any socket wrench is the connector, that little square bit of steel with the tiny ball bearing locking button that keeps the sockets from falling off. Think of the connector as the RBD, the Receptor Binding Domain. This is the bit of the spike protein that actually hooks up with your ACE-2 sites, which are the sockets in this early morning metaphor.



Think of a palindrome. That’s a word or phrase that reads the same when read left to right and right to left. “bob”. Or Napoleon’s Lament, “Able was I ere I saw Elba”. “A man, a plan, a canal. Panama.”

A dimeric molecule is made from two identical smaller molecules, called monomers, joined back to back. It’s a molecular palindrome. The monomers here are the RBDs.

image

graphical metaphor: a dimeric RBD socket connector





The Zifivax vaccine is two RBDs joined together. Probably the same RBD both times, but as the ‘rona virus mutates, there can be minor variations in the spike protein and the RBD, so it could still count as dimeric if it was made from RBD.0 and RBD.1. The point is, you don’t want the virus in you, period. And you don’t want the spike protein in you either, as it can cause all kinds of problems all by itself. Most of the current mRNA and DNA vaccines use enhanced artificial spike proteins, which IMHO is foolhardy and dangerous ... and we’ve all heard about the deaths and terrible side effects that can happen with them.

[ quick aside: Iceland has joined the rest of the Scandinavian nations and has now banned the Moderna vaccine. They say they have plenty of the Pfizer one on hand, which could be a convenient excuse. Plus they want more data. ]

Ok, so a vaccine made from dimeric RBDs would cause your body to build antibodies against just the tip, but it’s the tip that starts the whole infection ball rolling. Without the RBD doing it’s job, you don’t get sick. Period. I realized months ago that an RBD vaccine would be the best approach, but at that point other attempts at one had all failed. Perhaps the test subjects were building antibodies for the wrong end of the things, which wouldn’t do any good.

But the Chinese say the dimeric form works. I know, China. China lies, China is asshoe. BUT.



Indonesia’s drug and food authority BPOM has announced that it has issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Zifivax Covid-19 vaccine produced by Chinese biopharmaceutical company Anhui Zhifei Longcom.

“Today, BPOM again announces that we have approved a Covid-19 vaccine product under the trade name Zifivax which was developed with a recombinant protein sub-unit platform,” BPOM’s head Penny Lukito told a virtual press conference.

Lukito explained that the Zifivax vaccine has passed the third phase of clinical trials with 28,500 subjects in Indonesia, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Ecuador, and China.

In Indonesia, the third phase of the clinical trial involved around 4,000 people aged between 18 and 59 years old.

The clinical trial concluded that the efficacy of the Zifivax vaccine reached 81.71 percent after seven days of injections and 81.4 percent after 14 days.

Zifivax is also effective against the new variants of the SARS CoV-2 virus, namely Alfa (92.93 percent), Gamma (100 percent), Delta (77.47 percent), and Kappa (90.0 percent).

Alpha is the UK variant, Gamma is one of the Brazil variants, Delta is the Indian variant, Kappa is another Indian variant, that has notable changes to the spike protein. Kappa is a minor player at this point, but it’s prevalent in Australia, where they don’t have many cases at all. So far. Relatively.

So let’s see how this goes in Indonesia. Getting straight news from Indonesia can be difficult, because it’s A) the other end of the world, B) an autocratic Islamic nation, C) a whole bunch of little islands that don’t always communicate with each other or the outside world, D) perhaps too heavily influenced by certain nearby powerful autocratic nations.

But if it works, and if the Vax Stasi here get even more heavy handed, and if this one gets an EUA in the USA, then this is the jab I’d take at gunpoint. Acceptably effective against the variants, and no spike proteins. And please keep the graphene and the nanobots out of it.

So China has built a vaccine that does pretty much the same thing that the main aspect of Ivermectin does, but does it the antibody way.

Bowling Blogging !!

We took all 7 last night, slaughtering our opponents. They’re a team of total newbies; one average bowler, one low average bowler, one beginner, and one bowling for the first time ever last night. So we had to hand out quite a bit of handicap points, but our whole team was bowling well, and wifely and I were really in the groove. So we won each game by more than 100 pins. We didn’t need to bowl that well, but we did our best because we could. I threw a 591 series, opening one game with 4 strikes in a row and opening another game with 6 strikes in a row (148 in the 5th frame!!). I messed up in the last game, missing a 600 series by just 9 pins. Crivens. She threw a 561 series, a 187 average which is nearly 30 over for her. Sweet. So that makes 2 weeks in a row we’ve won all 7, which will bring us up a bit in the standings. We had a good time.

October 8, 2021

Rather similar to the theme of yesterday’s post. this other story from yesterday I didn’t get around to:

No Vaccination? No Transplant Surgery For You!

A Colorado-based health system says it is denying organ transplants to patients not vaccinated against the coronavirus in “almost all situations,” citing studies that show these patients are much more likely to die if they get covid-19.

UCHealth’s rules for transplants entered the spotlight Tuesday when Colorado state Rep. Tim Geitner (R) said it denied a kidney transplant to a Colorado Springs woman because she was not vaccinated against the coronavirus. Calling the decision “disgusting” and discriminatory, Geitner shared a letter that he said the patient received last week from UCHealth’s transplant center at the University of Colorado’s Anschutz Medical Campus in the city of Aurora.



UC Health claims that unvaccinated transplant patients who get the But Covid have a 50% higher fatality rate, going from 20% and increasing to 30%. So of course the right response is to deny them the surgery, which will raise their fatality rate to 100%.

Or maybe force them to get the jabs, given that they’re already highly immunocomprimized. Nothing like a big blob of artificial and enhanced spike proteins to stress a body that is already stressed to the edge of breaking.

The two women in this story, the recipient and the donor, are looking at other states, hoping that those states aren’t quite so benighted.

There are plenty of other reports of other medical centers and doctors who are refusing to give care to the unvaccinated. Doesn’t matter if they have natural immunity. Doesn’t matter if they were just tested and came back negative.

“First, do no harm ... unless it’s those icky unvaxxed deplorables, in which case push them off to a dirty corner to die. It what they deserve.”

An awful lot of shingles need to be taken down and burned, and an awful lot of stiff necks need to be stretched quickly. This is utterly unacceptable behavior, and it needs swift and severe punishment.

LA Kindly Allows The New Niggers To Eat. For Now.

image

The Los Angeles City Council on Oct. 6 approved one of the strictest COVID-19 vaccination mandates in the country, requiring proof of vaccination to enter indoor restaurants, movie theaters, salons, shopping centers, and many more indoor venues.

People will have to provide vaccination proof at gyms, sports arenas, museums, spas, indoor government facilities, malls, restaurants, and bars. For people with religious or medical exemptions, negative COVID-19 tests within 72 hours of entry will be required, according to the ordinance, which doesn’t make mention of “natural immunity” afforded by a previous COVID-19 infection.

Unvaccinated individuals attempting to use government services will be provided with “alternative arrangements for access to government services,” including online or outdoor services, or providing proof of a negative test to enter, according to the ordinance.

Retail establishments such as grocery stores and pharmacies aren’t included.

Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.

The insane Left is creating a new underclass of social pariahs.

Coercion. Shut people out of life until they get the “vaccines”, which are poison. [ Sweden just banned the Moderna jab for all people under 30; risks outweigh benefits ]
{ PS - Denmark and Finland quickly followed suit. }

Funny how these things keep right on ignoring acquired/natural immunity, which has been shown many times now to be much stronger than the artificial immunity given by the vaccines, much broader than it, and to last at least twice as long. Funny how even businesses, who enact their own mandates in cowardly lockstep, at best demand a positive antibody test to show natural immunity, ignoring the long proven fact that active antibodies don’t stay in the blood stream forever, and ignoring that a T-cell test exists which can prove deep down bone marrow level permanent immunity. And all these mandate and the crazed zombie sheep supporting them, ignore that the vaccinated can still get the virus, can still spread the virus, and that the overall risk reduction of even the best of these jabs, when fresh and new, is on the order of 1%.

This isn’t willful blindness. Far past that stage. This is the New Religion and we all know there’s no zealot like a recently converted zealot. And it’s the new Two Minutes of Hate, straight out of Orwell. And it’s the new Nazi; pariahs are pariahs, so it makes no difference if you think of them as filthy niggers or dirty jews. It’s the same hate, the same rationalization, the same projection. And it’s the same lynch mob.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
