Free The Gloves!

A Better Way: NJ Pol Cuts Red Tape, Gets 41M Falsely Impounded Gloves Released

While health care workers have been running short of protective equipment as they fight the coronavirus, more than 41 million medical gloves produced for a New Jersey-based company have been held in warehouses under federal government order since last September.

Until now.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agreed to release the gloves imported by Ansell Ltd., whose American headquarters are located in Iselin.

The gloves had been stored at facilities in Baltimore and Oakland, California, while the agency looked at whether they had been made with slave labor in Malaysia.

The charges turned out to be baseless, and Rep. Chris Smith, R-4th Dist., intervened at the company’s request and started calling federal officials to get the gloves shipped out.

He was able to pry them loose.

“At this critical juncture, when supplies of personal protective equipment are scarce and medical professionals need to be safeguarded from the coronavirus, we needed to act quickly and work with federal officials,” said Smith, who has led efforts in Congress to fight human trafficking and slavery worldwide.

Well good for him. Thanks. But you know what? In a real emergency, I don’t give a damn whether these were made by slaves or not. Are they of acceptable quality? Good enough, let them go.

Chris Smith is one of the few Republican representatives we have here in NJ.

Standard Union Scamming

SEIU “finds” 39 Million Face Masks, sells them to states at huge mark-up

The union launched an exhaustive search for masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) five days ago in response to pleas from frontline healthcare workers that they need more protection and feel unsafe on the job as they treat the growing number of COVID-19 patients. SEIU-UHW has 97,000 members who work in hospitals across California.

Within 48 hours of painstakingly calling leads and potential suppliers, the union discovered a distributor who had the 39 million masks, and has since found another supplier who says his company can produce 20 million more masks a week. The union also has found a supplier who can deliver millions of face shields.

The union said it will be selling the masks to states, counties and hospitals for $5 apiece and claims it “has no financial interest in the transactions.”

Similar N95 masks are available on the Home Depot website for $23.97 for a box of 20, or about $1.20 apiece.

Sounds to me like someone was hoarding. And you know what happens to hoarders in an emergency, right?

“No financial interest” = Minimum $3.80 profit per mask X 39 million = CHA FRICKING CHING!! That’s a whole lot of slush to add to their Democrat Election funds.

I’ve seen boxes of masks. A box of 20 is half the size of a small loaf of bread. Probably 2 dozen boxes per case and at least 100 cases on a plastic wrapped pallet. That’s 48,000 masks per pallet: 39 million of them is 812 pallets full. 22-24 pallets fills a tractor trailer. 40 trucks worth. So it’s a small warehouse full. Let’s hope that the masks aren’t made in China.

Living In Lockdown

Stuck here at home not just by the Official Mandate but also by it being a cold wet crappy day, I went through my bookshelves and found something I hadn’t read in quite a few years.

image

I escaped into Pompeii, a fictional adventure from 2003 by Robert Harris. It’s a story set against the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, along with Augusta the aqua duck. Just kidding. Aqueduct Augusta. I read the whole 350 page book in one sitting. It’s a pretty good read. It was either that or do housework. And it’s still raining. Crivens.

Anyway, some of the characters in the novel were real people, known to history. One of them, Gaius Plinius Secundus, is better known these days as Pliny The Elder. He was a naturalist and historian. He recorded the eruption in prolific detail from across the Bay of Naples as it happened, but when he lead a group of Navy ships over to try to save some people, the conditions eventually killed him. He was old and corpulent, but he was no coward. When thousands fled from the disaster, he ran (sailed) towards the fire. His extensive notes on the eruption survived, and this specific kind of volcanic explosion was named Plinian in his honor.

Anyway, near the end of the book are a couple of paragraphs describing his death scene as the eruption hits him that I think might be rather relevant right now:

Men mistook measurement for understanding. And they always had to put themselves at the center of everything. That was their gravest conceit. The earth is becoming warmer - it must be our fault! The mountain is destroying us - we have not propitiated the gods! It rains too much, it rains too little - a comfort to think that these things are somehow connected to our behavior, that if we only lived a little better, a little more frugally, our virtue would be rewarded. But here was nature, sweeping towards him - unknowable, all-conquering, indifferent - and he saw in her fires the futility of human pretensions.

It was hard to breathe, or even to stand in the wind. The air was full of ash and grit and a terrible brilliance. He was choking, the pain across his chest was an iron band. He staggered backwards.

Face it, don’t give in.

Face it like a Roman.

The tide engulfed him.

While thousands and thousands of people died in the eruption, many more thousands of people lived. While Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Stabiae were destroyed and buried, many of the other towns in the area were spared. Even a few people who were on the good side of the volcano lived through it.

Back To Work

No more isolation, woo hoo.

We’ve been self-quarantined for 10 days now, waiting on the coronavirus test results for one of her co-workers. We got the call today that her results came back negative. 11 days after her test. Crivens.

So I can go do my few hours of cleaning again. And get paid. Woo hoo!!

Yeah, I know the state is in lockdown. I’m doing medical office cleaning and sanitizing. If I get pulled over, I’m sure they’ll give me a pass.

Y’all Ok Out There?

I haven’t had a comment from anybody in a long while. I hope you’re all Ok, and just sick and tired of me blathering on and on forever about this damn virus BS.

Or maybe my blog isn’t letting anybody comment. And I can’t find out about it, because the blog email hasn’t worked in months either.

So maybe Vilmar or one of you with my home email could try, and let me know if it fails.

Now go wash your hands. Because. Virus.

A new leader emerges

Oh GAK. OTOH, young people are influenced by influencers, so maybe they might listen to this bilious billionaire bint. OR maybe they’ll all come home from Spring Break tanned, pregnant, with fresh STDs and a nice friendly killer virus in them. YOLO, so no FOMO.

Kylie Jenner: The Social Distancing EXPERT America Needs!!!!

Well, America, it’s come to this. U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams has called on Kylie Jenner to help our nation weather the storm of the coronavirus pandemic. That’s not even a joke. And it’s not all that far-fetched, since it turns out that the cosmetics mogul has quite a bit of experience with social distancing.

“What I really think we need to do is get our influencers out — Kevin Durant, Donovan Mitchell,” Adams said on Good Morning America Thursday. “We need to get Kylie Jenner. We need to get our social media influencers out there in helping folks understand that look, this is serious.”

Adams said this in response to the videos and reports coming from Florida, where young people are defiantly partying for spring break, even as the rest of the country sits at home in isolation to flatten the curve of COVID-19’s spread.

In fact, Jenner had already been urging her followers to stay home, as she has been doing for over a week.

“Another reminder to take this social distancing serious and self quarantine,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories on Wednesday. “I’m on Day 8. My pregnancy prepared me for this. I didn’t leave the house for months.”

In case you’ve forgotten, Jenner stayed hidden from the world while she was pregnant with Stormi, choosing to have a rare time of privacy. “My pregnancy was one [journey] I chose not to do in front of the world,” she said after giving birth.

So there you go. Somebody young, beautiful, popular, and richer than Pharaoh is now an “expert” at staying home ... because she’s been off the front pages of the gossip magazines for EIGHT WHOLE DAYS.

Ok Snowflake.

PA joins the lockdown

I missed this one yesterday. PA Governor Tom Wolfe has issued a lockdown of businesses in Pennsylvania that is at least as strong as the ones issued by NY, NJ, CT, MD the previous day.

Gov. Tom Wolf announced a statewide shut down. That means all non-essential stores, bars and restaurants will close effective at midnight. This is expected to last for 2 weeks. Gov. Wolf said there are no plans to shut down any pharmacies, grocery stores or medical facilities and he urged people to continue their normal shopping trips.

This is similar to the order issued by Allegheny County over the weekend. In that order, all childcare facilities, senior centers, community and recreation centers, gyms, salons, spas, casinos, bars, concert venues, theaters, social clubs, sports facilities and more. This does not apply to carry-out and delivery only services.

Unlike those other states, right now it is the PA plan to do this for just 2 weeks, instead of “as long as this order remains in effect” as they have done.

~~~~

And even though NJ has shut down a) all gatherings of 50 or more people, and b) all gyms and fitness centers/classes, while c) making all non-essential recreational businesses close by 8pm for the mandatory voluntary curfew, our bowling alley remains open with no plans to cancel bowling league, which runs from 6:30-9ish on Friday night and has 48 members just on the lanes we use. I just talked to the alley folks on the phone, and they’re open. Oh sure, the attached bar is closed, and the restaurant is only doing take out (wonder if you can take it out of the restaurant and eat it in the bowling alley?). Go figure.

Ach Crivens, I got nearly all of them

image

We never had a party line phone, but when I was young, you only needed to dial 4 numbers to get anyone in my town, pay phones still cost a nickel in some places, and you gave your local phone code with words or letters. “Murray Hill 6, 1458” “PE5-1234”.

And forget Green Stamps. Blue Stamps, and those booklets full of Plaid stamps you saved and pasted to drive across the county to the redemption center to get free stuff. Different stores gave out different kinds of stamps.

Howdy Doody went off the air when I was really small. Fine by me; I always thought it was phony and lame.

And before the TV test pattern came on, usually the one with the Indian Chief at the top, the network played the national anthem. And then there was no more TV for the night. If you knew your stuff, you could use the test pattern to adjust your TV to get the sharpest picture. They needed adjusting every few weeks I think.

really dark Monday

Stock market taking a big giant huge dump today. DJI down nearly 2111 points, S&P 500 and NASDAQ in the tank, VIX (volatility index, aka the fear factor) could be over 90%.

Biggest one day drop since 2008. Or maybe 1987. West Texas Crude down 33.8% and sliding.

More good news for the Dems, because Teh Russians and Teh Virus are behind it, therefore it must be Trump’s fault, right?

no

don’t wanna, ain’t gonna.

sorry. not sorry.

kung flu overdose again. it’s so much hype. when the bodies start piling up all over the world, then panic. When the death toll exceeds drunk driving, or suicides, or maybe even lightning strikes, then panic. If the numbers get bigger than the typical annual flu deaths, then it’s too late to panic, as you’re probably already sick.

Effing soviets couldn’t cut a deal with the effing sand lice on oil, so the market tanked. thanks. But it’s all due to coronavirus. STHU.

If oil drops by a third, will we see a parallel drop in gas prices? Will $2.33/gal go to $1.56? Don’t even dare to dream about that. Taxes are a big part and they won’t budge. And the oil price is not one to one with the gas price. But still, if this drop holds for a few weeks, we will see prices drop maybe by 25¢. I hope. Sure would be nice to fill up my tank for a twenty. Not that a twenty is worth anything anymore anyway.

Maybe later this week will be a good time to buy oil company stock. Because if it dives, it will bottom, and then come back. Up and down on the merry-go-round, always. As dependable as climate change.

I Hear It Must Be Spring

It’s sunny and nearly warm today. The lawn service people have arrived with their army of gas powered leaf blowers. They’re all outside my unit right now, making sure the throttles are nice and lubricated, so they can rev those horrible things up and down every few seconds for the next several hours. I’m sure they’ll then practice blowing my early emerging flowers right out of the ground again.

One of the nice things about Winter is that they aren’t around. It’s quiet. And since we’ve only had one bit of snow this season that was worth shoveling, the 3am snow squad hasn’t been around either. More quiet.

Right. Time to make breakfast. Looks like it will be sourdough starter pancakes. You feed the stuff, you get more of it, but you can’t make 3 loaves of bread a day to keep it in check. So you find other things to do with it. Checks fridge ... finds bacon ... mmm!

Oh Joy, it’s Super Tuesday!! Snore ...

Scary Stuff

A scientific research report from December 2015 discussing bio research done at UNC. In order to R&D viral remedies, they created something very much like Wu Flu, based on Chinese horseshoe bat virus, although they called it something else: SHC014-MA15.

Construction of chimeric SL-Viruses

Both wild-type and chimeric viruses were derived from either SARS-CoV Urbani or corresponding mouse adapted (MA15) infectious clone as previously described27. Plasmids containing spike sequences for SHC014 were extracted by restriction digest and ligated into the E and F plasmid of the MA15 infectious clone. The clone was designed and purchased from Bio Basic as six contiguous cDNAs using published sequences flanked by unique class II restriction endonuclease sites (BglI). Thereafter, plasmids containing wild-type, chimeric SARS-CoV and SHC014-CoV genome fragments were amplified, excised, ligated, and purified. In vitro transcription reactions were then preformed to synthesize full-length genomic RNA, which was transfected into Vero E6 cells as previously described28. The media from transfected cells were harvested and served as seed stocks for subsequent experiments. Chimeric and full length viruses were confirmed by sequence analysis prior to use in these studies. Synthetic construction of chimeric mutant and full length SHC014-CoV were approved by the University of North Carolina Institutional Biosafety Committee and the Dual Use Research of Concern committee.

Once they built it, they became afraid to work with it because it was so potent.

As such, relative to the Urbani Spike-MA15 CoV, SHC014-MA15 constitutes a gain in pathogenesis (Fig. 1). Based on these findings, review panels may deem similar studies too risky to pursue as increased pathogenicity in mammalian models cannot be excluded. Coupled with restrictions on mouse adapted strains and monoclonal antibodies generated against escape mutants, research into CoV emergence and therapeutic efficacy may be severely limited moving forward. Together, these data and restrictions represent a crossroads of GOF research concerns; the potential to prepare and mitigate future outbreaks must be weighed against the risk of creating more dangerous pathogens. In developing policies moving forward, it is important to consider the value of the data generated by these studies and if they warrant further study or the inherent risks involved.

Their study was published 3 months earlier at Nature.

Evaluation of available SARS-based immune-therapeutic and prophylactic modalities revealed poor efficacy; both monoclonal antibody and vaccine approaches failed to neutralize and protect from infection with CoVs using the novel spike protein. On the basis of these findings, we synthetically re-derived an infectious full-length SHC014 recombinant virus and demonstrate robust viral replication both in vitro and in vivo. Our work suggests a potential risk of SARS-CoV re-emergence from viruses currently circulating in bat populations.

I am not saying AT ALL that this creation was stolen, sold off, let loose, escaped accidentally, or anything negative like that. What I am saying was that “chimeric SL viruses” were created more than 5 years ago in the USA, ostensibly to use for the development of vaccines and treatment therapies, and that the risks were obvious at that time. That sleeping protein spike thing mentioned in the news article I linked to earlier today was known about then. Probably at least 6 years ago, as this study took some time, and the whole thing was kicked off after the SARS outbreak some years before that and the new awareness of these ACE2 receptor sites on the lungs.

The bat virus vector was recognized at least as far back as 2013, when a study was published, again in Nature. The work was done by a team in Wuhan; at least one of them was later part of the group at UNC.

Later, Li and Shi jointly conducted a gain-of-function study published in the Journal of Virology in September 2015 on the MERS virus and a bat virus (strain HKU4) in 2015. Since MERS virus can enter human cells but HKU4 can not, they introduced 2 single mutations in the HKU4 spike protein and found that the new mutant S protein can enable HKU4 to enter human cells. If they mutated 2 sites in MERS spike, the resulting MERS pseudovirus (experimental virus) cannot enter human cells anymore.

Furthermore, Shi’s group joined an international group to generate a chimeric virus with the bat virus SHC014 they harvested in Yunnan. Since they know SHC014 is unlikely to bind to human ACE2, they “synthesized the SHC014 spike in the context of the replication competent, mouse-adapted SARS-CoV backbone”. So, that is a lab-engineered virus with SARS-CoV Mouse adapted backbone (MA15) but with SHC014 spike.

To their surprise, the chimeric virus (SHC014-MA15) can use SHC014 spike to bind to human ACE2 receptor and enter human cells. SHC014-MA15 can also cause disease in mice and cause death as well. Existing vaccines to SARS cannot protect animals from SHC014-MA15 infection. Therefore, these chimeric virus studies can lead to the generation of more pathogenic, more deadly CoV strains in mammalian models.

Due to the U.S. government-mandated pause on the gain-of-function (GOF) studies, this international research did not proceed further at that time. However, there is no evidence that Shi’s group in China stopped any further study on the track of introducing GOF mutations on the CoV.

Anything further is conjecture, quickly leading to rather paranoid conclusions. I have no way to verify researcher Shi Zengli’s remark that “"The novel 2019 coronavirus is nature punishing the human race for keeping uncivilized living habits.” or even what that means to her.

I can only say that the lab coat folks at the Wuhan CDC identified this thing almost instantly, perhaps because they’ve been working on things extremely similar to it for many years now. And the “HIV-like mutation” that is mentioned in today’s news is probably the same one that was pointed out by virologists from India soon after Wu Flu showed up, but has since been retracted for some reason ... because they were wrong, or because of politics. I don’t have that answer. But Shi Zengli was behind that criticism too. Does her research show that this situation occurs naturally as well? 

OR maybe I’ve spent 2 hours running down links and reading accredited and peer reviewed research papers published across 12 years that seem to strongly support today’s “fake news” published only to whip up public frenzy.

Aren’t there any happy kitten rescue stories out there?

Everything on the news is either Bernie or WuFlu.  Tiresome. So I think I’m going to revert to pretzel blogging ... actually, I’ve got a basic, inexpensive quick version of my super dough I’d like to run off, and test it in a washing soda bath. I have to go buy some beer first.

Washing soda is just baked baking soda. 400 oven for an hour on a baking sheet, and you get back a silvery powder that is far more alkaline than baking soda. A quarter molar solution, 0.25, of 21gm in a liter of water yields a pH of 11.86, which may be strong enough to trigger that pretzel magic reaction without leaving a nasty taste behind. 10gm of the stuff gives 11.7 pH and half the chance of aftertaste. Will they do the job, being 100 times weaker than a lye bath? Time for another Edible Science Experiment !!


Meanwhile, the latest research out of China says that the WuFlu seems to be a mix of the bat coronavirus and HIV. Isn’t that special?? The HIV-like genetic mutation makes it 100-1000 times more infectious as SARS. The invasive vector is something called a “furin-like cleavage site”. [ Insert snide remark about those damn furin-ers and something about cleavage here. Have to stay abreast of the news. ]

This may be why some people who have had it and recovered get sick again, like the lady in Japan in today’s news. Because HIV is forever.

The likelihood that this thing is natural gets smaller every day. Thank God it leaked out before they could mate it to Ebola and Hantavirus and then target it to specific ethnic groups.

There will be no haj this year. Sorry muzzies.

Japan is closing all it’s schools for a month just to be safe.

Australia bans any foreign visitors who have been in China 14 days ago.

Party officials and police stealing donated emergency food in hardest hit cities.  Typical corrupt elites.

175 New Yorkers on Long Island remain in voluntary quarantine. So far, no infections. So far.

No more dogs or cats for lunch in China. No snakes, frogs, or turtles either. Oh noes!!!

Thin Pickings, viral musings

Not a whole lot out there to blog about if I want to avoid the Dem debates and primaries and the whole wu fluthing.

OTOH, these debates are showing that Joe Biden is pretty much senile, as the Gaffe Master drops his dumb bombs day after day. “I’m running for Senator.” “My son the Surgeon General.” “150 million Americans killed by guns since 2007.” There’s a screw loose in there somewhere, and a few spark plugs misfiring. Go back to the retirement home Joe and have some nice soft pudding.

OTTH, now that white people are getting the disease all over Europe, our MSM has really, REALLY ramped up the coronavirus stuff in the last couple days, with help from the WHO and the CDC. It’s going to come here, it’s going to be huge, it will shut down the world for at least a month, and at least a million of us will die from it. Gosh, what great news.  Actually, if you run the numbers - 325 million people here, a 70% infection rate, and a 2% mortality rate - that ads up to 4.5 million deaths. And while I do believe our medical care is quite a bit better than what China has, I don’t think we have the ability to deliver massive quantities of that care to the point that we can but the death rate by 80%. Maybe our people are just healthier. Let’s pray that’s so.

Meanwhile, San Francisco, already knee deep in the pooplah, has declared a state of emergency ahead of the wave.

The mayor of San Francisco declared a state of emergency over coronavirus fears on Tuesday shortly after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a warning that the U.S. will likely see more cases.

There are 57 known cases in the U.S. and no cases in San Francisco, but Mayor London Breed pointed to the virus’ unpredictability and troubling global growth.

“We see the virus spreading in new parts of the world every day, and we are taking the necessary steps to protect San Franciscans from harm,” Breed said. She said many of the city’s residents travel to mainland China, so it is not far-fetched to suspect cases in the future.

Is it time yet to close to gates to Fortress America? I would have thought that time was 3 or 5 weeks ago. Close the borders, cancel all air flights, close the ports. Give our citizens a week to get home and quarantine a whole lot of them. Declare a bank and credit card holiday; no foreclosures or loan defaults for the next 90 days. Can we survive 3 months without any imports, using our own food and fuel? Let’s find out. If we do wake up to a lifeboat scenario of limited resources, will there be a push to toss the 65 million illegals overboard?

I’m really hoping that a new economic model comes out the other side of this. People are finally waking up to just how much of everything we buy comes from over there. For more than 40 years every possible kind of production has moved to Asia, taking our jobs with it. Slave labor, poor quality control, and no regulations add up to great profit margins. And we got to clean up our air, land, and water while they turned their nations into toxic waste dumps. And we have way too much stuff anyway. Maybe the era of excessive consumption and our throw away culture are about to come to an end. What if we shift over to building quality, durable good here that are made from our own resources, last a long time and can be repaired locally?

Meanwhile, the Dems continue to push for open boarders. Not the smartest idea right now. Not ever, actually, but worse at this moment in time. And at the same time, they’re dunning Mr. Trump because his $4.5 Billion plan to fund containment efforts isn’t enough.

I think maybe I should go do some grocery shopping, and lay in some extra supplies. Just in case we have to isolate against the zombie hordes.



UPDATE: The President will give a speech tonight about the coronavirus situation. 6pm Eastern.

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
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

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.
