A top virologist made an appearance on Fox News last week, and was dishing the dirt of Covid’s origins – it “escaped” from the lab – and its creation – it wasn’t from bats. Unfortunately, that may be the only good news here.
That COVID-19 escaped from the Wuhan lab went from a “fringe conspiracy theory” to one of the leading explanations for the pandemic in record time.
Every couple of weeks it seems that there’s a new piece of evidence supporting the theory, and Dr. Stephen Quay laid out the case in his explosive but under-reported Wall Street Journal article titled “Science Closes in on Covid’s Origins,” while arguing that a virus far more dangerous may be in that lab.
He spoke to Fox’s Martha MacCallum to discuss it earlier this week. The relevant quotes from the interview are as follows:
There are a few explanations pertaining to its release from the lab and why Covid didn’t come from bats, but this quote is the one we should all be concerned about…
Dr. Quay on a potentially more deadly virus in the Wuhan lab: “..inside the Wuhan Institute of Virology in patients specimens in December 2019. What I found there was that the lab was contaminated with Nipah virus research that’s about two years ahead of SARS-CoV-2. Now, Nipah virus is 80 percent lethal. So this is not, you know, if you didn’t like the pandemic, that was just one percent lethal. This thing they were working on in December 2019 has an 80 percent lethality. It needs to be stopped.”
Now, I’m the last person to embrace panic pr0n, but if this new virus has an eighty percent lethality, we’re looking at an extinction level event. The Wuhan lab needs to be shut down, immediately, and it needs to stay down… preferably with tactical nukes.
Meet Anzhelika Baranova, a Russian nurse who has not cut her hair since she was five years old. She has let her hair grow for the past twenty-three years, with no plan to see a pair scissors anytime soon.
A 28-year-old nurse from the Russian city of Irkutsk has been dubbed the “Russian Rapunzel” after it was revealed that her ankle-long hair hasn’t been cut for 23 years.
Anzhelika Baranova was only five when her hair was last trimmed. Neither she nor her parents planned to let her hair grow for over two decades, it just sort of happened, as if it was meant to be. She was always very proud of her hair, and taking care of it was never much of a chore. She claims she doesn’t do anything special to maintain her locks, she just washes it twice a week with regular shampoo and conditioner and gently brushes it with a comb to ensure she doesn’t break knotted strands.
She’s definitely an attractive woman, but that hair must be difficult to maintain.
Strangely enough, my armpit hair is almost that length.

While you would think America has cornered the market on dumbasses, our neighbors to the north also have their own versions of Florida Man. Take this rocket surgeon, who decided to call 911 for arguably the dumbest reason ever.
Peel Regional Police released the audio on Friday to remind people about the proper uses of dialing 911. When the 38-second call begins, the operator asks the man if he needs police, fire or ambulance.
He first says he needs an ambulance, but then tells the operator he actually needs police.
“The thing is I have to pee and these guys are not moving,” the caller tells the operator. “This is your emergency?” the operator responds. “That you have to pee? And how are the police going to help you urinate?”
Ladies and gentlemen, you need to be prepared for every highway contingency. That’s why I always have an empty soda bottle in the car, as well as a large bucket and toilet paper for, um, other emergencies.
A friend and member of my police department sent me this article the other day. It is a scathing report of the alleged incompetence of Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw. It’s worth your time if you want to see what is really going on in this department.
The occasion is two of her police officers shot in the line of duty this past Monday, October 4th, at 1:25 p.m. while combating a maniac wearing body armor and shooting at them with an AR-15 automatic rifle. The madman had just murdered someone inside Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.
WPVI-TV 6 reported, “After the shooting, police say Hayes left the scene in a U-Haul. About an hour later, police received a report of an armed man in scrubs outside of the School of the Future at 40th and Parkside. Officers from the 16th District responded to the scene and police say Hayes fired dozens of rounds at responding officers. A 32-year-old officer who was grazed in the face was treated and released. Another 30-year-old officer was scheduled for surgery Monday afternoon after he was shot in the elbow. More than a hundred rounds littered the lawn outside the school. Police say the gunman was wearing full tactical body armor. An AR-15 assault rifle and handgun were found at the scene.”
Three hours after the event, Outlaw talked to the press at the hospital. She could have used this as an opportunity to improve perceptions about her. She is universally disliked and instills zero confidence in her officers, her commanders, and the public. One senior commander told us, “I could have got the worst shitbag commander that I have and put them in front of the cameras, and they would done better than her. They would have praised their cops and talked about their families.”
Read the entire article at the link. It’s a tad lengthy, but it’s worth it.
The city of New York, like many cities, is having a tough time keeping merchandise stocked on their store’s shelves. A combination of slow supply lines, a lack of people wanting to work, and shoplifting has turned New York City into 1950’s Moscow.
Stores such as CVS, Walgreens and Duane Reade are all running very low on goods. Supplies are being held up on cargo ships that are taking up to four weeks to dock at US ports.
Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with the global pandemic. Sure, there were supply chain troubles when the Chinese Wuhan Virus began – because everyone was on lockdown – but now this is more about White House policies than any “slow supply lines.”
A lack of manpower to unload them and to drive goods around the US is causing a giant backlog.
It’s almost as if people don’t want to work when the government is paying them more to stay home.
Experts have warned the government to intervene or face spiraling inflation and unemployment, as rocketing demand for goods in short supply pushes their prices up. US consumers have already seen prices of everyday items rise in recent months, with economists warning of an extended period of inflation that will push up the cost of living.
Erik bought a Dallas Cowboys jersey a few days ago. It was on sale because the player was just traded. I selected the “three-to seven days delivery” to save a few bucks. The other day I was sent an email claiming the jersey would be here on October 20th – two weeks after it was ordered.
I’m starting to believe Kamala wasn’t joking when she said we should start purchasing Christmas presents now. I don’t think she meant to say it, but she probably knows what we do not; the administration is doing nothing to encourage Americans to go back to work, and doing even less to fix the supply chains.
Joe Biden built that!
According to fairly reliable sources, the air traffic controllers at Jacksonville International Airport walked off the job in protest of Covid vaccine mandate. Every. Single. One. The FAA apparently asked the media to not report on this, but many employees at Jax are confirming. There have been a reported 650 flights canceled yesterday, with no end in sight.
Mass flight cancellations were blamed on limited staffing at the Jacksonville Air Traffic Control Center in Hilliard and weather Friday night, according to the FAA.
Several flights in and out of Florida were either canceled or delayed Friday night.
Hmm, that’s interesting because a Jacksonville meteorologist claimed the skies were clear.
Action News Jax Chief Meteorologist Mike Buresh says the weather was clear in the area long before the delays were reported.
Obviously, this sucks for those passengers who need to get home or to get to their destinations, but I cannot blame the ATCs for walking off the job. Forced vaccines were never going to work, and eventually people were going to rebel. Apparently it’s already happening.
Tom Sauer on Twitter has a string about this, and it certainly looks like the air traffic controllers walked off the job. I guess Jax can either fire all the controllers, or rescind the mandate. New York has fired 1,400 unvaccinated workers, including doctors and nurses for not getting the vaccine. United Airlines fired 600 of their employees, and even police departments are firing officers for refusing the vax.
I’m glad people are starting to fight these mandates – I wish I did – especially after some of the side effects appear alarming. It’s nice to see people rising up against fascism.
So a group of Scottish friends took their mate out for a bachelor party. Apparently Scotland’s bachelor parties are much different than the ones I attended in America.
Commuters got quite an eyeful as they passed the scene in Robroyston, Glasgow, around 5.50pm on Thursday.
In a video clip, two pals can be seen tying the unsuspecting man to a wooden board and securing it to the roundabout’s road signs. Across the road, more friends laugh and cheer while the stunt – believed to be as part of a stag do – unfolds.
From the footage, the ‘groom’ appears to be only wearing a plastic Donald Trump mask and a mankini while cars and vans drive by.
I mean, the Trump mask was a nice feature, and I guarantee he had a much better bachelor party than I did. I mean, the best man did what he could, but I wasn’t even drunk afterward.
The dementia-addled illegitimate president has decided it is time to lift sanctions on the terror state of Iran. Specifically, the “president” has lifted any and all sanctions on the Iranian missile program.
President Joe Biden’s administration has reportedly lifted sanctions on two Iranian entities involved in Iran’s missile program just as Iran is believed to be closing in on having enough nuclear fuel to build a nuclear bomb.
I sincerely hope our friends in Israel understand the United States is no longer their friend, and America will not be there to help when things go south. Iran will attack when they get the opportunity.
“The sanctions, targeting the Mammut Industrial Group and its subsidiary Mammut Diesel, were originally imposed by the Trump administration in September 2020 as part of efforts to increase a maximum pressure campaign of sanctions on Tehran over its nuclear activity and actions in the region criticized as malign and destabilizing,” The Hill reported. “The entities were identified as being ‘key producers and suppliers of military-grade, dual-use goods for Iran’s missile programs.’”
So in a few years, Iran will have nuclear weapons, and their first target will be Israel. Helluva job, Biden; you’re effectively enabling a nuclear war.
The Trump administration had imposed crushing sanctions on Iran, which is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, in an effort to get the country to abandon its nuclear program.
Remember when we had a president would would crack down on bad actors? It appears those days are gone forever, now that the illegitimate president has embraced China, Russia, and Iran.
A Troy, Michigan woman lost her shite after she heard a song inside a store. Apparently the song made her sad, so instead of sucking it up, she decided to lose her marbles.
Police said the 45-year-old woman was at Paradise Fruit Market on Sept. 27 when she heard the song. She told workers that the song made her sad and asked them to stop playing it. When the workers told her they couldn’t stop the song, she got angry and started yelling, so employees called police to escort the woman out of the store. However, the woman left and called the police to tell them she went to Sterling Heights.
Hmm, I wonder if it was “Baby Come Back?” That one always gets me.
An officer found the woman sitting in a vehicle on Parliament Drive west of Pall Mall Drive. As he was speaking to her, she got agitated, accused him of lying, and drove away. The officer tried to use his vehicle to block the woman from leaving but she drove around the patrol car and left. She was stopped, arrested, and later charged with hinder and obstruction of a police officer.
My local Redner’s supermarket is amazing with their music. One day they’ll be playing pop songs, the next day, it’s hard rock, and the next day it’s New Wave. The best day ever was when I was shopping and heard the store playing The Psychedelic Furs.
