Coronavirus as a Bioweapon By Brian Simpson

     I am updating here the coronavirus pandemic today’s news. The view that this is a dud disease is refuted by rising death tolls in China, with the commo authorities hiding the real number of dead:

“Local Chinese authorities have just lost the ability to pick up corpses due to a breakdown in government,” said Gordon Chang, a well-known expert on China on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “So really what we are having right now is, they are completely overwhelmed,” Chang added. “They are not able to keep accurate statistics. So what we are witnessing is essentially a breakdown in government and keeping accurate statistics is a very minor part of their priorities right now.” Chang said that while he understands the preventative measure, he believes the quarantine has “made the problem worse.” “I can understand why they want to quarantine but remember, the Wuhan mayor said about 5 million people from his city left before the quarantine was imposed,” he said. “Also right now the quarantine has aggravated a problem and that is [that] people can’t get to hospitals, so they are at home…they are dying.” “They are infecting other people in their households because they are not, in a sense, quarantined from wives, husbands, brothers, sisters,” he continued. “The quarantine has made the problem worse. It’s also created panic. That panic has had consequences on, for instance, social cohesion which is absolutely necessary if you want to beat an epidemic.”

Are Viruses Racist? By Brian Simpson

     I formulate this idea when reading the following speculations at vDare.com, which noted that all of the people dying from the coronavirus are Han Chinese.
  https://vdare.com/articles/do-you-know-all-coronavirus-victims-appear-to-be-chinese-thought-not?scroll_to_paragraph=5

“In fact, as far as I can tell, all of the confirmed cases have been of Chinese people. According to Sri Lankan radio, the case in Sri Lanka was a “Chinese tourist” [Sri Lanka suspends visa on arrival for Chinese travellers after confirmed case of Corona virus, News On Air, January 28, 2020]. So are the cases in France and the one in the United Arab Emirates [Coronavirus is spreading as FIVE people in France are now confirmed to have the illness and Chinese traveller from Wuhan is quarantined in Finland, by Sam Blanchard, Mail Online, January 29, 2020]. If it is true that only East Asians are dying of, or even catching, Corona, that would be consistent with long-established race differences in the susceptibility to such viruses. This has been explored in a fascinating study, by a group of Chinese researchers led by C. L. Chen of Soochow University, entitled: Ethnic differences in susceptibilities to A(H1N1) flu [African Journal of Biotechnology, 2009]. The authors begin by noting that, from an evolutionary perspective, there is every reason to expect there to be ethnic or race differences in the susceptibility to different pathogens. Races—or, as they call them, “ethnic groups”—are breeding populations, long-separated, usually by geography, who are, therefore, genetic clusters adapted to different ecologies. Because they were exposed to different pathogens in prehistory, there are very likely to be race differences in susceptibility to the pathogens and in how well the immune system can fight them.

The Mistake Made by Asians with Masks By Brian Simpson

     It is surprising that the magazine American Renaissance (“Asians are soooo much smarter than us”) is not jumping up to advise, but I guess they feel no need to, knowing their place in the great chain of being. I have in mind face masks, and anyone walking around town, waiting for the inevitable zombie apocalypse will see many friendly people donning surgical masks. But these are useless against air borne viruses:
  https://www.livescience.com/face-mask-new-coronavirus.html

“Can wearing a medical face mask protect you against the new coronavirus? It's a question many people, including pet owners who are putting canine face masks on their dogs, are asking. If it's a regular surgical face mask, the answer is "no," Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious-disease specialist at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee, told Live Science. A more specialized mask, known as an N95 respirator, can protect against the new coronavirus, also called 2019-nCoV. The respirator is thicker than a surgical mask, but Schaffner doesn't recommend it for public use, at least not at this point. That's because, in part, it's challenging to put these masks on and wear them for long periods of time, he said. Specialists receive retraining annually on how to properly fit these respirators around the nose, cheeks and chin, ensuring that wearers don't breathe around the edges of the respirator. "When you do that, it turns out that the work of breathing, since you're going through a very thick material, is harder. You have to work to breathe in and out. It's a bit claustrophobic. It can get moist and hot in there," Schaffner said. "I know that I can wear them when I need to for about a half-hour," he added. "But then I have to go out of the isolation room, take it off and take some deep breaths, kind of cool off, before I can go back in." While it is possible to buy the N95 respirator online, Schaffner advised against it. For one thing, there are just seven cases of coronavirus in the United States at this point. Meanwhile, influenza will infect, hospitalize and even kill thousands upon thousands of Americans this year, but most people aren't thinking of taking the same precautions for that illness, he said. Furthermore, while there is no shortage of the respirators now, there could be if too many people unnecessarily buy one, Schaffner said.”

The Coronavirus, A New World Order Plot! By James Reed

Yes, I say! The globalists will use every piece of driftwood that floats their way for their agenda. Global cooling would have been even better than global warming for example. I mean, in a new ice age shouldn’t we all be together for “warmth”?

The Coming Dark Age By Peter Ewer

     This is an informative article dealing with a topic that thinkers contemplating the collapse of Western civilisation come up to: will there be a new Dark Age as followed the collapse of the Roman Empire? The article is by an academic writing under the pen name of Ferdinand Bardamu, which is the name of the protagonist in the great novel by French iconoclastic writer Louis-Ferdinand Céline, Journey to the End of the Night (1932):
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journey_to_the_End_of_the_Night

     Bardamu sees a new Dark Age as already upon us as the white race rushes into the abyss of racial suicide, pulling down the temple of civilisation with it, and this time, in a globally interconnected world, when one domino collapses, they all ultimately will.

Update on the 5G War By Brian Simpson

     Here are two good articles, detailing how the global elite are using advanced technology for increasing social control and power. The problem is that this techy is what is known as a “social trap,” something that catches people and becomes stuck to them, so that they are dependent upon it, even thought there was once a world not too long ago without it. That makes it particularly difficult to oppose technological advances which are clearly having the majority benefit to the elites, creating a technocracy. It is far from clear how this can be fought, other than a purge of the entire system, which is not going to happen soon. There is remarkedly little written about the strategy of opposing technocracy, but much about its evils. We need to begin to think critically about science and technology, which have become modern gods, delivering the goodies by magic to the sheeple who mindless, or almost mindlessly, consume.

Those Who Live by Globalism, Die by Globalism By James Reed

     The World Health Organization has now declared the coronavirus epidemic a global pandemic. But it stopped short of advocating closing borders, although sensible countries like Russia, have already done so, and good for them:
  https://www.ft.com/content/75adafb6-4306-11ea-abea-0c7a29cd66fe
  https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/30/health/coronavirus-world-health-organization.html
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-01-30-w-h-o-declares-global-pandemic-coronavirus.html

“The World Health Organization declared on Thursday that the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak was a global health emergency, acknowledging that the disease now represents a risk beyond China, where it emerged last month. The decision reversed the organization’s decision just a week ago to hold off such a declaration. Since then, W.H.O. officials said, thousands of new cases in China and clear human-to-human transmission in several other countries — now including the United States — warranted a reconsideration of that decision by the agency’s expert committee. The W.H.O.’s declaration — officially called a “public health emergency of international concern” — does not have the force of law. But it serves notice to all United Nations member states that the world’s top health advisory body thinks the situation is grave. Governments then make their own decisions about whether to close their borders, cancel flights, screen people arriving at airports or take other protective measures.”

Feeding Research into the Great China Machine By Brian Simpson

     You will not see too much about how China sucks off research from the West on the Dissent Right Sinophile sites, because they are too busy saying how the Chinese are “so much smarter than us,” their form of ethno-masochism.  But, consider:
  https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2020/01/21/feds-university-of-florida-faculty-members-fed-research-to-china/

“Four researchers were forced to resign from their positions at the University of Florida after a federal investigation revealed that foreign countries including China had exploited medical research at the university with the researchers’ help. According to a report by the Tampa Bay Times, the University of Florida was the target of foreign manipulation. Federal investigators concluded that professors employed by universities around the United States that receive public funding are funneling research data to other countries, including communist China. The four researchers left the university after the National Institutes of Health penned a letter that suggested that some researchers were exploiting the university’s research and sharing it with other countries. After the National Institutes of Health sent a letter to the University of Florida suggesting that certain members of the faculty and staff were stealing research, the university conducted its own internal investigation. Three researchers resigned and another was fired. Three of the researchers resigned and one was terminated after the university received a letter from the National Institutes of Health regarding questionable foreign meddling in grant research and funding. The terminated employee worked part time for the university’s College of Medicine. Two were from the College of Engineering and one was from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. University of Florida President W. Kent Fuchs told Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) in December that the university had identified several professors that were exploiting their position to feed research information to foreign countries. “The university has identified certain faculty members who were participating or were seeking to participate in a foreign talents program. The university has addressed or is in the process of addressing each of these matters,” Fuchs wrote.”

Australia; Globalist and Ecologically Insane By Brian Simpson

     If the coronavirus, or the next big one is any guide, Australia due to its globalism and deracination, will simply be open to wide contamination. Maybe a good plague might wake up those who survive, but I doubt it:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7950429/Where-Australians-risk-exposed-deadly-coronavirus-disease-spreads.html?ico=pushly-notifcation-small

“Australia's gateways, major tourist destinations, universities and suburbs in Sydney and Melbourne with large numbers of Chinese have emerged as the frontline in the fight against deadly coronavirus. Authorities are closely watching key meeting places around the country for signs of outbreaks as the World Health Organisation declares a global public health emergency. Fears are held thousands of Australians could have been unwittingly exposed to the virus in airplanes, restaurants and shopping centres by nine confirmed infected patients. And every week up to 49,000 people are landing in Australia on 167 flights from China, where 170 are dead and more than 7,700 infected. Many of those arriving are heading to holidays spots such as the Gold Coast, visiting family and friends in suburban Sydney and Melbourne or returning to east coast universities. But first they must come through the international airports, where checks have already been rolled out for those arriving from all Chinese cities.

Baby Muhammad By Richard Miller

     Of course, it doesn’t show anything about mass immigration or changing demographics; people simply want diversity in names:

“The popular Islamic name “Muhammad” has broken into the top ten United States baby names for the first time ever in American history. The most updated list for popular baby names reveals that the name Muhammad is now the tenth most used name for newborn baby boys in the U.S., according to BabyCenter data. This is the first time in American history that the name has been included in the top ten most popular baby boy names.

Now They Take Even the Toilet Away from Us! By Bruce Bennett

     Is nothing “sacred” anymore?
  https://amp.news.com.au/finance/work/at-work/a-new-toilet-design-is-set-to-increase-productivity-by-making-the-seats-unbearable/news-story/864ff2e28fea1b2c0c42a82165d6d79b

“The new design is intended to make it unbearable for workers after five minutes, shortening employee’s toilet breaks in the process. The “Standard Toilet” made by a start-up in the UK of the same name is sloped so it sits at a 13-degree downward angle. According to developer Mahabir Gill from StandardToilet, this will increase strain on the legs similar to a gentle squat thrust. While 13 degrees is optimal, StandardToilet holds the patent for anything from five to 35 degrees. At a maximum, the company estimates that a 35-degree downward slant would reduce time in the toilet by 30 per cent. This is a clear benefit to customers, said Mr Gill, as industry research from the company suggested that the average person spent 25 per cent more time in work toilets than necessary. The cost to business of this was estimated to be roughly $A31 billion (£16 billion) per annum, according to their website. Meanwhile, by cutting time spent on the toilet by 25 per cent with a 13-degree angle, Standard Toilet estimates it can save businesses $A9.20 billion (£4.8 billion) a year. The news of the toilet has been met with criticism online, with people questioning how this toilet would be legal for people with accessibility issues.”

Is the Coronavirus a Bioweapon? By Brian Simpson

     One conspiracy theory on the internet has it that like in the zombie apocalypse movies in the series Resident Evil, the coronavirus is an escaped bioweapon:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/real-umbrella-corp-wuhan-ultra-biohazard-lab-was-studying-worlds-most-dangerous-pathogens

“In February 2017, Nature penned an extensive profile of what it called the "Chinese lab poised to study world's most dangerous pathogens." The location of this BSL-4 rated lab? Why, Wuhan. A quick read of what this lab was meant to do, prompts the immediate question whether the coronavirus epidemic isn't a weaponized virus that just happened to escape the lab: The Wuhan lab cost 300 million yuan (US$44 million), and to allay safety concerns it was built far above the flood plain and with the capacity to withstand a magnitude-7 earthquake, although the area has no history of strong earthquakes. It will focus on the control of emerging diseases, store purified viruses and act as a World Health Organization ‘reference laboratory’ linked to similar labs around the world. “It will be a key node in the global biosafety-lab network,” says lab director Yuan Zhiming. The Chinese Academy of Sciences approved the construction of a BSL-4 laboratory in 2003, and the epidemic of SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) around the same time lent the project momentum. The lab was designed and constructed with French assistance as part of a 2004 cooperative agreement on the prevention and control of emerging infectious diseases. But the complexity of the project, China’s lack of experience, difficulty in maintaining funding and long government approval procedures meant that construction wasn’t finished until the end of 2014.

Deflating IQ By Brian Simpson

     I continue my battle against what I call the IQ fetish, championed by Dissent Righters like American Renaissance, who hold as a fact, almost like gravitational attraction, that East Asians have higher mean IQs than say Nordic Whites, that Western civilisation is an accident, although what they usually say is “Asians are just so much smarter than us.” Presumably they are not restricting the scope of ‘us” to just themselves. Anyway, I came across this little item at Quora.com, which deflated IQ delightfully:

Spanish/Chinese Flu By Brian Simpson

     The Spanish Flu of 1918, actually from China, but first reported by Spain, killed 100 million people, according to recent estimates.

  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCFJPDqKPgc&feature=emb_title

     The world at that time was not as globalised as today, so it is all a matter of the “right” virus coming along, which is inevitable given the genetic adaptation of viruses. The above video reminds us of the horrific nature of pandemics, with people dropping dead in the streets, bodies being stacked, and so on. This is forgotten by even scientists, as humanity is over-confident that technology will always deliver in time. But, what if it does not? China seems to be unable to control potential pandemics, given aspects of their culture, so we can expect a repeat of 1918 at some point, which is what globalism and cosmopolitanism is all about at the bottom line:

On Teeth: Living on the Financial Edge By James Reed

     I read a piece by Brian Simpson, where he mentioned in passing his tooth abscess, and this caused me to have an anxiety attack, and make my last few teeth ache too. The most painful thing, is that people poor like me, and most of the writers here, who are on some sort of welfare benefit (Brian works teaching, so he should button up whinging), simple exist, with few things in life to dull the pain of postmodern decomposition “existence,” with not even enough alcohol. I don’t even know if Uncle Len is alive, for example.  The average sheeple has consumerism, but that is taken from most of us by poverty, so we see things more clearly. The downside is not being able to get our teeth fixed. In the old days one could get teeth pulled readily and quickly, with my mother at age 18, getting 18 pulled in one sitting. False teeth made life much less painful. And, no matter how well you clean teeth, they eventually rot; the curse of civilisation as Dr Price noted:

Beware, the Coming Plague By Brian Simpson

     While there are sceptics from the Dissent Right, poo-pooing the idea of a coronavirus plague, there is material out there that needs careful consideration before blandly accepting the mainstream media claim of only 26 dead … oh wait that is now 54 dead with 300 new cases, with the disease contained to the Chinese ground zero of the city of Wuhan. In fact, the Chinese President Xi Jinping, has said that the spread of the virus is accelerating and that the situation is “grave,” no pun intended.

The Dangers of Eating Snakes By Brian Simpson

     Yes, I know, a weird title, but I am tired, not sleeping having the mother of all tooth abscesses, so my creative juices are flowing … well, a little differently. The reference is to a hypothesis about where the coronavirus came from. I am interested in this latest export from China, particularly after seeing a chemist near my dentist, selling masses of anti-germ masks, some costing $ 50, to Chinese buyers. I really need sleep; then my grammar will sparkle again, instead of simply raining.
  https://www.breitbart.com/news/wuhan-chinese-scientists-trace-coronavirus-to-snakes/

“A deadly new virus that has infected hundreds in China may have originated in a snake, a new study claims, as local authorities place a central Chinese city under lockdown to contain it from spreading. A group of Chinese scientists published their findings Wednesday in the Journal of Medical Virology, stating the newly discovered coronavirus most likely transferred to humans from a snake — specifically, the many-banded Chinese Krait or the Chinese cobra. The scientists conducted a sequence analysis of the virus isolated from a patient and compared it to other animals, determining the two snakes — which are common in Southeastern China, including in Wuhan — are most likely the source of the disease. “Our findings suggest that the snake is the most probable wildlife animal reservoir,” the team of scientists wrote in the paper. The scientists called for further investigation to confirm that snakes serve as reservoirs for the disease but said that their findings are “highly significant for effective control of the outbreak.”

Feminist Wants Germans to Commit Racial Suicide … What Else is New? By Richard Miller

     Here is another feminist telling white people not to have children to save the planet, or whatever.
  https://summit.news/2020/01/22/feminist-author-calls-on-germans-to-stop-having-babies-to-save-the-planet/

“Feminist author Verena Brunschweiger has called on Germans to stop having babies to save the planet, despite the fact that the country’s native fertility rate is already at just 1.4 children per woman. In an interview with Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung, Brunschweiger warns “we are on the brink of ecological collapse” and that the only solution is “the renunciation of one’s own reproduction.” Claiming that this topic is being kept hidden in “pro-natalist Germany,” Brunschweiger, who herself is childless, remarked, “It is…above all because of the masses of people that we have such big environmental problems. We are just too many and hardly anyone wants to limit themselves. If we were fewer people and restricted ourselves, we could save something.” Brunschweiger claimed that she felt like she was “in Saudi Arabia in the 14th century” when trying to voice her message, but that she had received support from a lot of women. The feminist is directing her message to Germans despite the fact that the country’s native fertility rate is around 1.4 children per woman, well below the necessary 2.1 replacement rate. “Since 1972, Germany has not seen a single year in which the number of newborns has exceeded the number of deaths,” reports Arutz Sheva. Despite her passion for population reduction, Brunschweiger’s “virtue-signalling has not yet reached the continent of Africa,” reports Free West Media. “Africa’s child population will reach 1 billion by 2055, making it the largest child population among all continents.” Indeed, sub-Saharan Africa will produce the most births for the rest of the century, so if Brunschweiger really cared about lowering the global population to save the planet, she would be telling Africans to stop breeding, which would of course be racist. And after all, to progressives it’s better to be dead than called racist!”

Coronavirus: Don’t Panic, Its Just Globalism By Brian Simpson

     The first case of the coronavirus outside of China has been reported:
  https://www.breitbart.com/asia/2020/01/21/cdc-confirms-first-us-case-of-china-coronavirus/

“An individual traveling from China has been diagnosed in Seattle with the coronavirus, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) spokesman confirmed on Tuesday. The development comes after Chinese health officials announced that the virus has killed at least 6 people and sickened over 300. Four cases were confirmed in South Korea, Japan, and Thailand. Additionally, a Taiwanese national who recently visited Wuhan, tested positive for the virus. China’s Health Commission announced 291 confirmed cases of the virus, with 77 new cases reported on Monday alone. Municipal health commissions of Zhejiang, Tianjin, and Shanghai reported additional cases, pushing the number of infections up to 302. The number of confirmed cases in Hubei province, where Wuhan is located, has risen to 270; Bejing has five, Guangdong province 14, Shanghai six, Zhejiang five and Tianjin two. Wuhan announced new measures Tuesday to contain the outbreak, including the cancellation of upcoming Lunar New Year celebrations. The new measures follow President Xi Jinping ordering increased efforts to stop the spread of the disease Monday, but there are fears efforts to contain the virus impeded by Chinese bureaucracy have come too late. Hundreds of millions of Chinese are expected to travel across the country in the coming days ahead of the Lunar New Year and raise concerns of a potential increase in cases. Presently, the virus appears to be less lethal than the 2002-2003 SARS outbreak, which resulted in 774 deaths. “Based on current information, an animal source seems the most likely primary source of this outbreak with limited human-to-human transmission occurring between close contacts,” said World Health Organization spokesman Tarik Jasarevic. “Based on current data, some new cases seem to experience milder diseases which is within the milder end of the spectrum of symptoms caused by respiratory illnesses,” Jasarevic added.”

The Immune System Against Cancer By Mrs Vera west

     We have heard the news of a universal cancer cure before, so I tsake it all now with a pinch of salt:
  https://www.bbc.com/news/health-51182451

“A newly-discovered part of our immune system could be harnessed to treat all cancers, say scientists. The Cardiff University team discovered a method of killing prostate, breast, lung and other cancers in lab tests. The findings, published in Nature Immunology, have not been tested in patients, but the researchers say they have "enormous potential". Experts said that although the work was still at an early stage, it was very exciting. What have they found? Our immune system is our body's natural defence against infection, but it also attacks cancerous cells. The scientists were looking for "unconventional" and previously undiscovered ways the immune system naturally attacks tumours. What they found was a T-cell inside people's blood. This is an immune cell that can scan the body to assess whether there is a threat that needs to be eliminated. The difference is this one could attack a wide range of cancers. "There's a chance here to treat every patient," researcher Prof Andrew Sewell told the BBC. He added: "Previously nobody believed this could be possible. "It raises the prospect of a 'one-size-fits-all' cancer treatment, a single type of T-cell that could be capable of destroying many different types of cancers across the population." How does it work? T-cells have "receptors" on their surface that allow them to "see" at a chemical level. The Cardiff team discovered a T-cell and its receptor that could find and kill a wide range of cancerous cells in the lab including lung, skin, blood, colon, breast, bone, prostate, ovarian, kidney and cervical cancer cells. Crucially, it left normal tissues untouched. -cells attack cancer cells
