Yes, motherfuckers, they knew this in 2005.

Anthony Fauci is a fucking quack who should have been fired when he lied about AIDS transmission and failed to develop a vaccine for HIV — which was his fucking mandate back in the late 1980s when he took the job he still holds to this day.

But let’s talk about one of his biggest lies that probably killed thousands of people during our most recent SARS episode — that Hydroxychlorquine had no affect on SARS-CoV-2 infections and anyone who said so was a fucking liar.

Look in the mirror much, Tony?  You fucking incompetent asshole.  Because THIS ARTICLE WAS ON THE NIH WEBSITE ALL ALONG.

Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread

Abstract

Background

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is caused by a newly discovered coronavirus (SARS-CoV). No effective prophylactic or post-exposure therapy is currently available.

Results

We report, however, that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage. In addition to the well-known functions of chloroquine such as elevations of endosomal pH, the drug appears to interfere with terminal glycosylation of the cellular receptor, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2. This may negatively influence the virus-receptor binding and abrogate the infection, with further ramifications by the elevation of vesicular pH, resulting in the inhibition of infection and spread of SARS CoV at clinically admissible concentrations.

Conclusion

Chloroquine is effective in preventing the spread of SARS CoV in cell culture. Favorable inhibition of virus spread was observed when the cells were either treated with chloroquine prior to or after SARS CoV infection. In addition, the indirect immunofluorescence assay described herein represents a simple and rapid method for screening SARS-CoV antiviral compounds.

No, Abdul, this is bullshit.

This is probably at least one reason why I don’t identify as a Republican. Because I don’t support pot legalization.

Yes, yes, I know, War on Drugs huge waste of time and treasure, blah blah blah. I myself think the administration of Narcan should be outlawed for the meth heads and other idiots who OD on things like fentanyl. Clearly people who do that kind of shit have a death wish, so grant it and let a Judge in a higher court deal with them. But, that has nothing to do with pot.

On the other hand, pot is as much of a cancer on society as anything else that clouds the mind. And no matter what the “experts” say, that shit will cause actual cancer, just like the cigarettes the same group of busies have been trying to outlaw for the past fifty years.

And you can also bet that if any government is eager to legalize any kind of recreational drug, it’s because they want the populace sedated and easy to manipulate.

On the gripping hand, I did read the article, and I looked at the internals they quoted, which do not match up with Abdul’s first-line assertion that “There’s a new poll out that shows a majority of Republicans in Indiana favor some form of legalization when it comes to marijuana.”  But see for yourself:

The results of the BK Strategies poll were pretty similar to one conducted by Indy Politics back in August. We surveyed more than 400 Marion County voters and found two-thirds of voters (65%) support the full legalization of recreational and medicinal use of marijuana, with an additional 20% supporting the legalization of marijuana strictly for medicinal use.

76% of Democrats, 62% of Independents, and 51% of Republicans support full legalization, with an additional 17% of Democrats and Independents, and 26% of Republicans supporting the legalization of marijuana for medicinal use.

The BK Strategies poll surveyed 600 likely general election voters with an additional oversample of 100 Republican voters and had a margin of error of +/-4.0 %. The Republican-specific date had a margin of error of +/-5.3%.”

You surveyed MARION COUNTY REPUBLICAN VOTERS? Shit, dawg — Marion County voters are more likely to vote RINO than true conservative, or not vote at all, which is at least part of how we got the Big Dem Moron In Charge on the 25th floor of the City-County Building. (A lousy GOP candidate offered up for sacrifice was another.) I’m hardly surprised MARION COUNTY REPUBLICAN VOTERS are in favor of pot legalization.

Why don’t you do a statewide poll and see what Indiana GOP voters think?

Because fuck you, that’s why

And as a matter of fact, we ARE winning.

Little Red Lying Hood strikes again

Nope. They went one better.

All you Photoshoppers can go home now.

This is peak Met Gala Dress.

Status update

All these “FUCK JOE BIDEN” chants at football games are starting to engender a very small amount of strange new respect for collegiate yutes.

But I want to see that shit starting at NFL games, too. And NBA games. And every other pro sport.

Tyranny is unacceptable. Dot, period, end of subject.

Joe Biden is a tyrant. And we know what Jefferson said about tyrants.

“A prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a people who mean to be free.”

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”

And old Ben Franklin had something to say about that, too:

“Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God”

Good news for a change — a new book released!

Actually it was released last night, but there were a couple of extremely minor typos and I refreshed the manuscript this morning.

All Col. Dr. Ariela Rivers Wolff, M.D., Ph.D., USSFM – the Lion of God – wanted was a little piece of paradise to call her own.

Being stuck on a desert world – even if she was the CO of the premiere battalion of the 1st U.S. Space Force Marines that was based there – was not getting her any beach time. Mostly because, without an ocean, there’s really no beach at all.

But she’s got a fix for that problem.

Now, if only the academics studying the problem of terraforming the exile world of al-Saḥra’ would get out of her way . . .

. . . and if only the religious fanatics who want their planet left as a desert, despite all the water from the planet’s former oceans being accessible only a few miles down, will leave the terraforming project alone long enough to see the good it will bring them . . .

. . . then, the Lion would truly be in Paradise.

But even in paradise, black clouds – and black ships – can herald danger . . .

I’ve been reading far too many resumes, lately…

If you ever write a resume to submit to a potential employer, please for fuck’s sake don’t do it in 9pt. type in two columns. It might be getting looked at by a couple of guys in their late 50s-early 60s who can’t see worth a shit, even on a 27″ high-def monitor. And one of those guys is potentially your immediate boss, and the other one is the CEO.

Fancy formatted resumes do not impress me. What have you done, where did you do it, when did you do it. That’s what I want to know. And I damned well do not want to have to squint to find it out.

Also, so tired of seeing the same buzzwords and buzz phrases, I could puke. Try being original instead of using the same worn-out tropes. (In fairness, I think a lot of this particular failing can be chalked up to using resume writing software as opposed to writing your own resume from scratch, but I think I am a dinosaur in that regard.)

PS:  I realize this blog shows up to most people in small type.  There’s a zoom setting in your browser that can solve that problem.  I run this blog at 133% myself.  I have my view of other blogs set similarly if they run with a small font by default (Instapundit, for one).  I run MeWe at 120%, and I think when I still had a Farcebork account, I ran it at 150%.
