20200412: America Getting Back to Work – MAGA ON! Kickin’ CoVid and Dems to the Curb!

That’s right – America is getting ready to go back to work! People are ready to kick the Corona Virus to the curb and our wanna-be “Democrat” overlords to the curb. Thank you to our dearest, Michael, for filling in for me and all of us, yesterday.

It’s amazing to see how regular Americans are responding to “social distancing”.

We’ll get through this crisis, together. As a group, there is probably no one better prepared than we are.Your comments and updates are most welcome. PLEASE continue to post your valuable information, hard source links, and local observations within these Daily Threads. Additionally, we will try to include links to government and official pressers, so those who no longer have cable can remain informed.

(Hard Link for any WH Presser when available)

For our newcomers: The Q Tree community has been diligent in covering the threat of Coronavirus, COVID19, Wuhan FLU. We started accumulating information about this virus in mid-late January, in what became almost weekly threads. We’ve been weeks, if not months, ahead of MSM outlets to vet rumors and other medical papers, etc.

Primary Update Links:

In our past weekly threads, we assembled information on the following:

  • Primary update links. The dashboard from Johns Hopkins which counts “official” cases all over the world, the CDC, and WHO, and includes the links for our past threads.
  • Hard Data Medical Information- Explanation about testing, reliance on China for drugs, analysis of NE Journal of Medicine results and other published papers.
  • Vaccine and theraputics (new/old drugs to alleviate symptoms) news and updates
  • Trump Administration response (the timeline and links to various agencies)
  • China Responses, timelines, research, attempt to cover actions, or secrecy in results discovered.
  • An aggregate of info/responses from other countries, listed by country.
  • Economic impact from around the world. A change in economic activity will indicate a “return to normal”.
  • Speculation/debunking on how the virus started
  • Media Bias, political response, and debunking section, like the article from AP News, overt bias from Politico, inflammatory headlines, etc.
  • Other medical info to boost immune system, herbal remedies, ways to keep your house clean and NOT spread the virus to others. Excellent information to incorporate into daily lifestyle.
  • Hard links for OTHER valuable sources/blogs and a brief sentence or two about what they provide
  • Other news items

      You commented that you liked the look of the SR-71 in the Open Post. Did you know?

      They flew so high they could easily see the curvature of the Earth. Above 80,000 feet, normal mission altitudes (nearly sixteen miles high), the sky overhead is deep blue, almost black, and stars are distinct and visible at noon. They flew so fast they could literally pass a speeding bullet. Cruising speed exceeded 2,100 miles per hour, three times the speed of sound.

      The plane’s two-man crew, a pilot and reconnaissance systems operator, ate special meals before a flight and breathed pure oxygen. The oxygen purged nitrogen from their bloodstreams and prevented the high-altitude problem of severe cramping. In flight, the temperature on certain portions of the SR-71’s titanium skin neared 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Expansion from the heat made the plane grow nine inches longer during a normal flight than when it was sitting on the ground. Prior to takeoff and building up the speed and skin temperature, the plane literally leaked jet fuel through it’s seams, a known and intentional thing.

      There were only 85 pilots and RSO’s who ever qualified to fly it, a very small fraternity, and like U2 pilots they wore quasi-space suits during their missions. Why?

      Because at mission altitudes above 63,000’ loss of cockpit pressurization or forced ejection led to this problem….

      If you ever have a layover at Washington Dulles, take a 5 min. Uber over to the Smithsonian’s Air & Space storage facility, called the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, and go stand next to one….and a lot of other historic aircraft, including the Space Shuttle Discovery (you can walk underneath it, it’s heat tiles scorched from it’s last mission to space). Entry is free, but be careful and keep your eye on the time. You can lose many hours there incredibly easy.

        1. Indeed. The SR71 is truly a standout aircraft. Here’s another tidbit (among hundreds about this plane) you might like…

          The plane is made of Titanium because it is the only metal that can withstand the rigors of repeatedly heating up to 1,000F without melting or losing it’s shape. It flew so fast that air molecules hitting the skin heated the plane up to these incredible temps. Anyway, the problem was the USA does not have appreciable deposits of Titanium, and none of our allies did either. So where did we get it?

          A: The CIA set up shell companies overseas, who then purchased it from the USSR, who we wanted to use the plane to spy on! 😎

          Also, interested to know what you learn about your uncle. Always love to hear about a family member’s service.

    1. CNBC Television: Coronavirus: German study shows COVID-19 might not be fatal as previously thought.
      91,619 views•Apr 9, 2020

      Professor Hendrick Streeck, University of Bonn director of the Institute of Virology and Institute for HIV Research, joins ‘Closing Bell’ to discuss the university’s antibody study and what it means for the coronavirus pandemic.

      The world is reeling from the coronavirus pandemic, and some countries are reeling more than others.

      But Germany seems to be taking the epidemic in its stride with a high number of cases but a low number of deaths, thanks to a number of factors.

      In Europe, while Italy and Spain are the worst hit countries with over 100,000 cases each, as of Friday, Germany has recorded 84,794 confirmed cases but has witnessed just 1,107 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

      The low mortality rate in Germany, at just over 1%, is far below its neighboring European countries, and this has been put down to Germany’s decision to implement widespread testing of people suspected of having the virus, as opposed to Italy or the U.K.’s decision to only test symptomatic cases.

      Karl Lauterbach, a professor of health economics and epidemiology at the University of Cologne, and a politician in the Social Democratic Party (SPD) of Germany, told CNBC that Germany’s less severe experience of the pandemic so far was down to a handful of factors.

    1. A couple of significant points:

      Because we are doing more widespread testing, I would expect our case number to look higher even if the actual number of cases is the same. Yet it is lower, so that tells me the actual number of cases must be lower, perhaps much lower, since FGIUKS is (effectively) understating cases by even more than we are and still shows a higher number.

      Our death numbers are lower, too, and that’s harder to under-report out of ignorance because in most cases these are people who were in hospitals and would have been tested. (It has been accused of being overreported.)

      Our breakout, however, is younger than the one in Europe, especially Italy. I suspect the best comparison can be made between the US and the group of European countries…after this is over.

      I think it will turn out that the fact that we took mitigation measures earlier (relative to the start in our country) than they did will turn out to have saved quite a number of lives.

  1. Been thinking about the backgrounds of the 2 doctors (Birx and Fauci). They both had backgrounds in fighting HIV.

    They both never thought that the American people would cooperate with the CDC guidelines as well as we have to slow the spread.

    Could their background in with HIV have affected their thinking about American’s willingness to follow guidelines?

    Took a LONG time for Americans to stop risky behavior regarding HIV. Really, Many have never stopped risky behavior.

    I wonder if their expereince trying to get Americans to modify their behavior re HIV colored their thinking regarding how Americans would modify behavior to mitigate for WuFlu and the likelihood of mitigation working and to what extent they predicted/believed mitigation would work?

    IDK…just something I keep thinking about and mulling over….

    1. Their concept of modifying human behavior was BUMPKAS.

      The LGBT folks are deeply entrenched in what they do – they were not going to change.

      Ordinary citizens, however, will change given reason that seems logical, and also if there is fear in the mix.

      So Fauci and Birx were wrong about behavioral modification.

      But someone was RIGHT about behavioral modification, and said that they COULD cause Americans to do some pretty crazy things in the right environment of reason and fear. . . not exactly who but someone else can speculate as to who came out ahead on the experiment.

      Most people, when they really understand the dangers of STDs, will self control. I remember talking with a professor years ago, very candid guy enjoyed talking with him, he said that the 70s were so much fun. He said could get laid with a girl at any party. But when HIV came along, all that stopped. The girls wouldn’t do it anymore – they were afraid of getting AIDS. LGBT however are on another plane of risk-taking, they often believed it would make them more gay when they were HIV+. This was not a representative sample of society. Remember too, people like Fauci and Birx treating the HIV epidemic, those kind of people would have had to be left leaning in their political thinking.

      So I’m not sure if their experiences colored their thinking as rose-colored glasses so much as served as an exterior coat of black paint over their designer sunglasses blocking all light to get through.

      Incidentally that same professor later asked me my opinion on the 2008 election cycle, at the time the primaries between Obama and HRC were in full swing, versus McCain. He felt, I think correctly at the time, that younger people were not very excited about the slate of candidates and would probably end up in large part (not all) sitting the election out.

        1. The one identified mechanism of action (there could be more) of the quinolones is ionphore to allow the zinc into the cells to inhibit viral replication. Quercetin and Green Tea (extract or long steeped) both work for this as well.

          And some are reporting that by using a chelated zinc (picolinate or orotate) also facilitates moving the zinc from outside to inside the target cells.

          It is possible that quinine has other helpful effects, but it also can affect tissue matrix development leading to torn tendons and other problems for some people.

        3. This may be a good question to ask…

          Is quinolone bacteriostatic or cidal?
          it appears that it is bacteriostatic at lower doses where the main mechanism of action is blocking certain cellular processes. At higher doses, it is considered bactericidal when it fragments the chromosome: “The hallmark of quinolone action is formation of cleaved complexes.”

          So far I’m only seeing metabolic activity as being important. There could be other important actions I’m not seeing put out there, but the warnings for the floroquinolones are not just minor. I know of at least one person that was crippled for life from a course of one of those antibiotics.

          Are fluoroquinolones really more dangerous than other antibiotics?
          Though no antibiotics are without consequence, the cellular destruction done by fluoroquinolones makes them far more dangerous than other antibiotics. Fluoroquinolones should be categorized as chemo drugs along with all other topoisomerase interrupters.

    The Turkish official told MEE that the drug was effective against pneumonia, which is seen as among the leading causes of death for coronavirus patients.

    Most of the patients taken to intensive care or who are put on ventilators are there because they have developed pneumonia.

    “The minister, instead of underlying the importance of the drug itself, has pointed out the benefit of using the drug in the early stages, before the patient becomes severely ill,” the official said.

    Statistics released by the Turkish health ministry on Tuesday showed that since beginning the treatment, new cases of lung disease among coronavirus patients have greatly decreased.

    On 24 March, 60 percent of coronavirus cases registered were patients with pneumonia, while on 6 April that had fallen to 19.5 percent.

      1. Not claiming to fully grasp the legalese or implications here…

        But couldn’t this blanket immunity also apply to using (Hydroxy)Chloroquine & Azithromycin &/or Zinc, etc? Couldn’t this basically allow those of us trapped in police states, like Michigan, to have access to such a measure as well as to protect the doctors & pharmacists whom our governor threatened to pull the licenses of if they prescribed &/or dispensed such a drug combo. Oh & if anyone wants the HCQ & Z but they are not hospitalized or in intensive care it’s currently not “allowed”…wouldn’t getting these meds earlier be exactly what this liability protection might provide?

      I just posted a summary of Dr. FAUCI’s interview with the editor of the JAMA. Don’t see the posting on this thread yet, I hope it’s not in the bin.
      Dr. Fauci basically DOWNPLAYS what he’s saying on other sites like BB and CNN. But pushes for other things like physical distancing all over the U.S.
      AND he hints that there will be ANOTHER outbreak of the Wuhan Coronavirus in the U.S. in September-October of this year.
      This interview is IMPORTANT to listen to.

      OTOH, the comments by Dr. Fauci on BB and CNN show the next phase of the plot to first, discredit POTUS, then remove him as soon as possible (either by another Impeachment, or by giving the White House to Joe Biden [Hillary Clinton] in November).

  8. FLASH! This is long, sorry, BUT IMPORTANT “INSIDER INFORMATION” FROM DR. FAUCI —
    Please listen to this interview between DR. ANTHONY FAUCI and DR. HOWARD BAUCHNER, Editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association (AMA).

    THIS interview is the viewpoint of the AMA on the Wuhan Coronavirus AND on POTUS’ response to it PLUS the efforts of Dr. Fauci to push the “vaccine is the only answer” meme.
    Pro Tip: FIRST QUESTION to Dr. Fauci: “How do you rate President Trump’s response to the pandemic?” (paraphrased)
    Mind you, NOT a question about the etiology of or research into the virus.
    Dr. Fauci: “Well, I can say this: President Trump is a listener.” (the answer is longer, this is a pull quote)

    Summary:
    Fauci: containment before mitigation. Cannot let the virus go from lineal to exponential in the spread. Praises Gov. CUOMO. Pushes “baseline level” of social distancing for the entire country. Getting back to “normality” = aggressive measures to prevent “recurrent peaks”. Pushes “physical separation” About wearing face masks = pushes universal wearing of masks by showing how masks trap droplets.
    RE HYDROXYCHOLORQUINE; Basically blows it off. “Still too soon for clinical trials to show positive results.” Pushes for MANDATORY CONTROLLED TRIALS before he’ll recognize the usefulness of this drug.
    Baucher: “IT [Hydroxycholorquine + Z-Pak] WON”T CURE THE DISEASE”
    Fauci: starts the “push for a vaccine” meme. Various types of vaccines now in trials. “S” vs “SM” vs “RMNA” protein types being tried. T-cell response is critical.
    Fauci: “Convalescent Plasma” antibodies trials are underway.
    Fauci: “SERO-SURVEILLANCE” must be part of the “get back to normality framework” = do antibody tests and validate who can do back to work.
    Fauci: DROPS A HINT THAT THE NEXT OUTBREAK WILL BE IN SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER of this year.
    Pushes for huge increase in spending on Public Health, especially at local / state levels.
    Fauci: FOR FALL, 2020: Have measures in place to test / isolate / trace / quarantine.
    PERMANENT CHANGES TO LIFESTYLE: constant hand washing / keeping people who get a fever at home / never again go back to shaking hands.
    Fauci: VACCINE TRIALS ARE IN PHASE TWO. If there is enough data on efficacy of a vaccine, the FDA CAN ISSUE AN EMERGENCY APROVAL.
    Fauci: ULTIMATE ANSWER IS A VACCINE.
    Near end of interview: Bauchner holds up a T-shirt that says:

      Researchers say the virus appears to mutate very slowly, with only tiny differences between the different strains, and that none of the strains of the virus is more deadly than another.

      They also say it does not appear the strains will grow more lethal as they evolve.

      1. I’m past my emotional reaction to SD, and I click his site for info just like I do other sites. Separating the info from the individual isn’t unique to our prior experience with SD. Many swallow their distaste for Trump personally because they appreciate what he is accomplishing. Reading OT is similar IMO.

        The article is speech AG Barr gave to governors a few months ago, warning them about a seemingly innocuous Chinese org that sought to do business via state governors. The site is actually a front for CCP. Barr and Trump are aware of which governors are rated by CCP as “friendly”, “hardline”, or “ambiguous”.
        You can find the speech elsewhere if interested. I use OT because SD posts the transcript which is easier for me than audio.

          1. IMPORTANT QUOTES FROM POMPEO SPEECH:

            In fact, I would be surprised if most of you in the audience have not been lobbied by the Chinese Communist Party directly.

            Chinese Communist Party friendship organizations like the one that I referenced earlier are in Richmond; Minneapolis; Portland; Jupiter, Florida; and many other cities around the country.

            But sometimes China’s activities aren’t quite that public, and I want to talk about some of that today. Let me read you an excerpt of a letter from a Chinese diplomat. It was China’s Consul General in New York sent a letter last month to the speaker of one of your state legislatures.

            Here’s what the letter said in part. It said, quote, “As we all know, Taiwan is part of China… avoid engaging in any official contact with Taiwan, including sending congratulatory messages to the electeds, introducing bills and proclamations for the election, sending officials and representatives to attend the inauguration ceremony, and inviting officials in Taiwan to visit the United States.” End of quote from the letter.

            Think about that. You had a diplomat from China assigned here to the United States, a representative of the Chinese Communist Party in New York City, sending an official letter urging that an American elected official shouldn’t exercise his right to freedom of speech.

            Let that sink in for just a minute.

            And this isn’t a one-off event. It’s happening all across the country.

            Chinese consulates in New York, in Illinois, in Texas, and two in California, bound by the diplomatic responsibilities and rights of the Vienna Convention, are very politically active at the state level, as is the embassy right here in Washington, D.C.

            Maybe some of you have heard about the time when the Chinese consulate paid the UC-San Diego students to protest the Dalai Lama.

            Or last August, when former governor Phil Bryant of Mississippi received a letter from a diplomat in the consul’s office in Houston, threatening to cancel a Chinese investment if the governor chose to travel to Taiwan. Phil went anyway.

            Last year, a high school – a high school, a high school in Chicago – disinvited a Taiwanese representative to serve on a climate panel after Chinese pressure.

            It’s one thing to pressure the Secretary of State of the United States of America. It seems quite something else to go after a high school principal. It shows depth. It shows systemization. It shows intent.

            […]

            “And when it comes to doing business, I’m asking you to adopt a cautious mindset. In the words of President Reagan, when you’re approached for an introduction or a connection to a deal, trust but verify.

            I know you all have power over pension funds or the people that run them. As of its latest public filing, the Florida Retirement System is invested in a company that in turn is invested in surveillance gear that the Chinese Communist Party uses to track more than 1 million Muslim minorities. California’s pension fund, the largest public pension fund in the country, is invested in companies that supply the People’s Liberation Army that puts our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines at risk.

            And it is the case for many Chinese companies, too – no Sarbanes-Oxley. Their books are not wide open, so it’s difficult to know if the transaction that’s being engaged in is transparent and fair and follows the rule of law.”

            “We have directed two Chinese propaganda outlets, the Chinese Global Television Network and Xinhua News Agency, to register as foreign agents.

            And we at the State Department have started to require Chinese diplomats to apply – comply with the same rules we comply with when we’re in China. Chinese diplomats now must notify the State Department in advance of official meetings with state and local officials.

            They must declare their official visits to U.S. educational and research institutions as well.

            This is just fairness, reciprocity, basic common sense. This is not an onerous restriction to put on China.”

            The Governors got more than they bargained for – they got a serious warning about the Chinese Communist Party’s brazen actions in the USA from the Secretary of State.

  13. Some doctors moving away from ventilators for virus patients

    NEW YORK (AP) — As health officials around the world push to get more ventilators to treat coronavirus patients, some doctors are moving away from using the breathing machines when they can.

    The reason: Some hospitals have reported unusually high death rates for coronavirus patients on ventilators, and some doctors worry that the machines could be harming certain patients.

    The evolving treatments highlight the fact that doctors are still learning the best way to manage a virus that emerged only months ago. They are relying on anecdotal, real-time data amid a crush of patients and shortages of basic supplies.

    Dr. Fauci:
    POTUS is a “good listener”.
    Pushes social / physical distancing for the entire U.S.
    Pushes aggressive interventions as part of a “return to normality” in terms of protocols set up for: tests / isolating / contact tracing / quarantining. “No recurrent peaks” of outbreak is the goal.
    Pushes universal mask wearing based on proof that wearing them stops droplet spread of the virus.
    Re Hydroxychloroquine + Z-Pak: “Still too soon for clinical trials to show positive results”. Dismisses this treatment. Pushing instead for random controlled trials before he would endorse.
    Vaccine: A vaccine IS THE ULTIMATE ANSWER to the virus. T-cell response is critical.
    Vaccine: Several Phase Two clinical trials underway already. If a vaccine has data that proves efficacy, the FDA can issue an “Emergency Approval” for its use.
    “Convalescent Plasma” trials underway.
    Pushes the following protocols for a “return to normality”: “Sero-surveillance” of antibody tests and validation / constant hand washing / wearing masks / keeping anybody with a fever at home / never again shaking hands / social distancing.
    Hints that ANOTHER outbreak of the virus will occur in September – October of this year.
    Pushes for huge increase in spending for public health care on all levels especially local / state.
    Dr. Bauchner: “It [Hydroxychloroquine + Z-Pak] won’t cure the disease.”

  18. Reading about four (!) meat packing plant closures in PA:

    – The largest plant closed “plant supplies an estimated one million families a day with meat.” That’s one plant. Four plants are closed. What happens to the supply chain and prices when a plant producing enough meat for a million families closes?

    – The closed plants are unionized.

    – The closed plants are staffed immigrants. Quote about a union boss who allegedly died from the virus: “His father spoke Haitian Creole, but learned Spanish to interact with the workers.” [Nobody seems to care about learning English.] Article also talks about “temporary workers” [euphemism for migrants]. Reading between the lines, I wonder how many of these union workers are here legally.

    So we’ve got unions, immigrants, and mega-corporations involved (Cargill and JBS–largest meat producers in the world). Yes, I am suspicious. Are these plants really closed because of “coronavirus”? Is something else going on?

      I don’t know the solution to optimal working conditions, decent wages and corporate profits, and still selling at a reasonable price.. All I can say is there aren’t too many jobs that are more undesirable than working in a meat-packing plant.

      I don’t wish the corona-virus or any other possible motive on these workers.

      Why would the meat-packing industry want to close plants? Or the unions? For more immigrant labor? Are you implying they are part of the plant-based diet movement or something else?

      1. Meat-packing used to be a very lucrative job with wages commensurate with the risks until these mega-corporations drove down the wages with illegal labor. Now illegals are the only ones willing to do hazardous work for Walmart wages. People don’t want to hear about higher meat prices, but the hard truth is that the wages need to go back up if we want Americans to have those jobs again.

        And as for the rest, I’m just noting the confluence of anti-Trump groups and globalist corporations surrounding these closures.

    2. Industry scrambles to stop fatal bird flu in South Carolina
      Health Apr 10, 2020 5:10 PM EDT
      DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — An infectious and fatal strain of bird flu has been confirmed in a commercial turkey flock in South Carolina, the first case of the more serious strain of the disease in the United States since 2017 and a worrisome development for an industry that was devastated by previous outbreaks.

      The high pathogenic case was found at an operation in Chesterfield County, South Carolina, marking the first case of the more dangerous strain since one found in a Tennessee chicken flock in 2017. In 2015, an estimated 50 million poultry had to be killed at operations mainly in the Upper Midwest after infections spread throughout the region.

      “Yes, it’s concerning when we see cases, but we are prepared to respond very quickly and that was done in this case,” said Lyndsay Cole, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.

  24. 700WLW, Cincinnati, 6:30PM Eastern news report: FLASH:

    DR. ANTHONY FAUCI SAID TODAY that it MAY be all right to have a “rolling schedule” of getting the country back to work starting next month, BUT “IT MAY NOT BE SAFE TO VOTE ON NOVEMBER 3.”

    Let me repeat that: Dr. Fauci said today that “IT MAY NOT BE SAFE TO VOTE ON NOVEMBER 3.”

  25. Ya know I sit here looking out my back patio watching people out and about after spending Easter alone without there family members for dinner. And I have to wonder how many are willing to just be sheep ? Are we willing to step up and say this is enough……..
    Praying that there’s more than the few here that are willing to step up.
    We need an awakening, and soon am afraid.
    God Bless everyone, stay safe not from the communist virus but from what am afraid may be coming in its wake.

    1. I think President Trump will be putting his foot down SOON like this week or next.

      The French Study of over 1000 patients is finished: https://www.mediterranee-infection.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Abstract_Raoult_EarlyTrtCovid19_09042020_vD1v.pdf

      The New York study has been running for 20 days (6 for the virus to clear + 14 for follow-up) as of Monday.

      I very much doubt, with a 1,000 or more people a day dying, that President Trump will allow the FDA to drag it’s feet much longer.

      With a KNOWN and very effective treatment, the only place that needs to remain shut is elder care facilities.

      1. I think one of the things to really hammer on now is the availability of that “KNOWN and very effective treatment”.

        Hopefully, PTrump can convince some of those recalcitrant state governors to openly endorse and promote the medicine combination we know will ease suffering and save lives,

        1. WE should start calling our hospitals, county health and governor’s offices. I plant to do so on Monday nicely armed with that report from France.

  26. I hope that Dr. Fauci isn’t turning into the modern-day DR. FAUSTUS (the “magic circle” in this case may be the vaccine Fauci is pushing).

      1. Sure hope Daughn and Big T are OK. Wind without a tornado can do a lot of damage too. Especially if there has been a lot of rain and the trees are not ‘solidly anchored’ Southern red clay soil makes the roots head to the side instead of straight down. I have been shocked at how shallow some of the root systems are on the trees that got blown down around here.

        The winds have been really nasty here in NC too.

        With the weather going from 90F to close to freezing and back into the 80s you get nasty winds and thunderstorms and sometimes tornadoes. Luckily we are a bit north of the ‘zone’ but had one pass within a couple miles away a few years back.

        EM (chiefIO) was saying 4 days ago: “… I look at the weather map and find floods predicted for the Mojave Desert and a Winter Storm Watch for the areas south east of me. Where’s my spring?…”
        He is in Southern California.

      1. Glad you’re okay!

        And yes…it looks like it was a really bad one.

        That F5 was a monster; reports are it was 2 miles wide and had a track of 75 miles.
        Reports are there were other touchdowns of tornadoes, too…not as big, but still bad.

        Again…glad to know you and T are okay!

        1. Thank you, Wheatie. Hard to keep track here. We’ve been losing power on and off all day.
          Up stomping around now, just lost it again.
          The wind is something! Wild lightning.

          1. I hope you didn’t get any wind damage.

            Being without power is no fun.
            😬😣
            I heard there are several hundred thousand without power there.

            Hope they get it back on soon!

  27. Putting two comments together:

    gudthots comment from the Utree:
    https://utree.home.blog/2020/04/11/the-quinine-doctor-speaks/#comment-6471

    Short out take of the comment.

    Just in from a contact in the Netherlands…

    Researchers at Radboud Hospital in Nijmegen think they have discovered an essential mechanism in the covid-19 disease process that has been overlooked so far.

    “If the insight is correct, it probably has important consequences for the treatment of the disease,” says a press statement from the hospital.

    Leaky blood vessels
    .
    .
    .
    Until now, doctors have known that ACE2 plays a role in maintaining blood pressure throughout the body. But it has another function, according to the researchers, which has been left out of the picture in covid-19 infections. “ACE2 keeps the substance bradykinin under control. Bradykinin makes blood vessels leak.
    We have good reason to believe that with these covid-19 infections we see exactly this effect: ACE2 receptors disappear from the lung cells by the introduction of the virus , which gives bradykinin free rein and causes the small blood vessels to leak en masse at the site of infection. ”….

    Here is a link to an article about that:
    https://www.archyde.com/researchers-radboudumc-essential-mechanism-covid-19-exposed/

    “. ACE2 is an enzyme found on organs, including the lungs. It is also the receptor, the ‘receiver’, for the coronavirus in the human body.”

    Then the video below.

    Could the above, — small blood vessels leaking due to Covid-19 attacking ACE2 at points other than the lungs — be the cause of these livedoid pattern rashes and/or Pernio/chilblains the Dermatologists are seeing?

  28. Fauci is going away. I refer you to the last line of the message the President retweeted.

    No doubt the media will be hot on this, come to Fauci’s defense and then hammer time.

    1. The only surprise here is we caught one of these punks. Charges under some war powers act concerning espionage and sabotage seem quite justified. Meanwhile turn this guys social media account inside and out.

      1. It’s also a little surprising the Chronicle mentioned it.
        He definitely needs white light on his life to find out why he’d do it…how did he gain access ? How did he identify it ? Allegedly patients can’t even have visitors but he wanders around long enough to steal something that should’ve been locked up.
