Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route    Despite its tremendous impact, the origin of SARS-CoV-2 has remained mysterious and controversial. The natural origin theory, although widely accepted, lacks substantial support. The alternative theory that the virus may have come from a research laboratory is, however, strictly censored on peer-reviewed scientific journals. Nonetheless, SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus. In this report, we describe the genomic, structural, medical, and literature evidence, which, when considered together, strongly contradicts the natural origin theory. The evidence shows that SARS-CoV-2 should be a laboratory product created by using bat coronaviruses ZC45 and/or ZXC21 as a template and/or backbone. Building upon the evidence, we further postulate a synthetic route for SARS-CoV-2, demonstrating that the laboratory-creation of this coronavirus is convenient and can be accomplished in approximately six months.

Upside-Down Planet GSTAAD—It snowed during the last two days of August up here, and why not? We’ve traded freedom of speech for “freedom from speech,” so on an upside-down planet, snow in the Alps in August is the new normal. The world is suddenly a grim place, a sick prank when you think of it, a kamikaze fantasy with the bad guys winning and being cheered on by the left and the media. The virus is now a metaphor, religion having been cast aside by the global elite who follow only their interests and think of the rest of us as cannon fodder.

JoAnn Hardesty. Portland Police Commissioner. Any questions?

After all these years of Antifa violence in the streets, we still know very little about their makeup because the press hasn’t been interested in reporting on them. Judging from mug shots, they tend to be ugly people with bad teeth and even worse taste in grooming. A remarkable fraction in Portland are some version of transgender. Oregon has offered free transsexual health services for several years, so perhaps the state attracts this type of mentally ill person from across the country? Also common are drug addicts, sex offenders, punk rock fans, educators, and general lowlifes who have personal reasons for hating cops. On the other hand, they don’t seem particularly interested in stealing nice things the way the black looters are.

Vox Popoli: Next time it will be fire God gave Noah the rainbow sign / No more water but the fire next time. Some will say that it is “ironic” that concerns over air quality have led to the burning of these Promethean-run states. But it is the rejection of God that is the beginning of blindness.

From Los Angeles magazine, an account of the May 31 Sack of Santa Monica: I was in Santa Monica that afternoon, on my way to the protests when a caravan of luxury vehicles brimming with passengers arrived on the scene, leaving a strong scent of cannabis in their wake…. [What] I witnessed was a well-planned organized heist that used the protestors as a shield and a diversion for their own nefarious purposes…. [About] 25 people spilled out of their autos and onto the street. They appeared to be highly organized. As they fanned across the neighborhood, a few people yelled out orders from inside their idling vehicles, waving this small army from one target to another with military precision. I watched as one group would break into the stores, smashing the windows with their hammers and screwdrivers. When the doors were finally breached, a second group would file in with empty duffel bags and emerge a few minutes later with their bags full. Then they would jump back into waiting vehicles and speed away to the next target.

The Absolutely Stunning Raquel Welch Turns 80 and Still Looks Great! Unbelievable as it sounds, Raquel Welch reached her 8th decade on September 5! It’s a date worth celebrating for this much-admired star of stage and screen. Born Jo Raquel Tejada in Chicago 1940, she originally wanted to dance. Raquel’s legendary physique actually proved to be an obstacle! Speaking to the Sunday Post in 2018 she revealed she “worked hard until I was 17 – by which time I had grown quite a bit of course and my instructor broke it to me that I really didn’t have the figure for ballet.”

Teller Shares Photo of Rare $1000 Bill a Customer Brought in to Deposit   First printed in 1928, this $1,000 bill features two-time United States President Grover Cleveland. He was the nation窶冱 22nd and 24th president, earning him the distinction of being the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms.

What? : Essays in Idleness Is it just my impression, or is every little shit determined to create his own parallel to the Batflu crisis, so that he may dole out threats and punishments, like the pros? Or enhance the background clusterfuck in his own unique way? (Excuse my Gaelic.)

World’s Most Valuable Coin for Sale – Check out the “Flowing Hair” Silver Dollar    A super rare “flowing hair” silver dollar from 1794 goes under the hammer soon… and is expected to fetch in excess of $10 million! This would make it the most valuable coin in the world. And that’s not the end of the story. This wavy-haired lady could in fact be the face of America’s very first coin. Either way, it’s one pricey piece of currency. The “Flowing Hair” silver dollar “has been identified as perhaps the first piece made in silver” according to Douglas Mudd, via Associated Press. He should know. Mudd is director of the American Numismatic (i.e. anything to do with coins and medals) Association Museum. When it was exhibited there he no doubt got a good look. The coin is in “beautiful condition”, ramping up the interest even further, so to speak.

The Echo Chamber |   There are people in the media and in charge of the media operations that understand this ploy. You would think someone would call shenanigans on this once in a while, but it never happens. That’s because the handful of people who control these big media operations think it benefits their long-term project. The people working as reporters are just carny-folk now, willing to say and do anything to keep their acting gig.

‘California Is The Progressive Utopia Of The Future!’ Says Gavin Newsom Who Is Currently On Fire    SACRAMENTO, CA—After blaming every single one of the state’s problems on climate change, Governor Gavin Newsom proclaimed that California is the “progressive utopia of the future” and that the state is “like America fast-forwarded fifty years into the glorious future.” As he said this, his hair burst into flames, likely due to all the hair gel coupled with the fact that half of the state is currently on fire. As the flames licked up his podium and ignited his microphone, shirt, and face, he continued victoriously proclaiming the accomplishments of the state of California.

Tiny California Town Leveled By “Wall Of Fire”; 10 Dead, 16 Missing – Deadline

The essence of civilization is the orderly quest for truth, the rational perception of reality and all its facets, and the adaptation of man’s behavior to its laws. So long as we follow the path of reason we shall not move far from the lighted circle of civilization. Its enemies invariably lie among those who, for whatever motive, deny, distort, minimize, exaggerate or poison the truth, and who falsify the process of reason. At all times civilization has its enemies, though they are constantly changing their guise and their weapons. The great defensive art is to detect and unmask them before the damage they inflict becomes fatal. “Hell,” wrote Thomas Hobbes, “is truth seen too late.” Survival is falsehood detected in time.      —Paul Johnson

This Photograph Of Broccoli Is The Largest Single Photo Ever Taken Within this 13-foot behemoth are camera lenses, filters, cables, the nearly-200 CCDs, and refrigeration equipment. The latter is essential in cooling the detectors to a temperature of negative 150 degrees Fahrenheit. When fully assembled, the camera will be focused on the stars. Roodman said he wanted to test the camera beforehand, however, by projecting an image onto the detectors before the lenses are installed.

The Last Great Puritan Awokening Certainly that’s what we’re now seeing.  The outpouring of religious devotion to George Floyd, erstwhile meth head turned secular saint, is of such a level as to make any spiritual promoter, from pope to cult guru, green with envy. His body lies in state, wreathed in a golden coffin, travelling from city to city like the relics of a beloved martyr whose mere presence may heal the infirmed.  Saint George of the Holy Fentanyl, Patron Saint of Manufactured Narratives, intercede for us!

    WTF with this smoke? The West is absolutely the worst I’ve ever seen it as far as smoke is concerned. Soooo glad the FBI has told me to not bitch, or report, arson because that’s just slowing the firefighters down.

    What’s fukn next?

    Strange Daze is, hands down, the best news aggregation site online. Period.

    The photo of Portland’s police commissioner. Is that the duffle blog or the Sac Bee? HFS. Why do Portland cops even show up for work? To play dress up?

    The vet running for congress in Oregon. Dude wants to run into hell with a gas can in his hand. My hat’s off to him. He’s going to need to pick a fight instead of make a friend with every congress critter he meets. He’s going to be like Captain America getting on the elevator.

    I don’t notice the smoke in Minnesota except at sunrise or sunset. Then, you see it.

  • ghostsniper September 14, 2020, 12:48 PM

    Looked up that JoAnn Hardesty thing.
    That is one of the nastiest human beings I have ever had the displeasure of looking up.
    How in the world did people chose that thing to represent them?
    If about 100 nukes were set off on that fault line would it be enough to snap that whole thing off the continent?

    Re: JA Hardesty
    A couple days ago I stumbled onto a broadcast from Vice TV entitled “The Cannibal Warlords of Liberia”. She’d fit right in. BTW, if you have not seen this, I highly recommend it. Normally I don’t watch video on line, but thirty seconds into this hooked me for the full hour show. (shudder)

    Casey says, “What’s fukn next?”

    Well, I just paid a visit to Neo’s blog; first news item I see is that my home town (Lancaster, PA) is the latest small city (it’s about 60% the size of Kenosha) to be convulsed by rioting. Seems that a cop was called to a domestic disturbance call, was confronted by a Hispanic (judging by his name) male waving a knife above his head, used deadly force to subdue the perp . . . and presto, Antifa and the other usual suspects start a riot on Chestnut Street near the police station.
    Details at the link: https://lancasteronline.com/news/local/night-of-unrest-following-officer-fatally-shooting-man-in-lancaster-city-heres-what-we-know/article_b847c86e-f604-11ea-834f-c72363aa941f.html

    I’m heartsick. I know that Kenosha broke the template (i.e., that riots occur only in major cities like Chicago, NYC, LA, etc.), but to read news like this about my home town is a sucker punch to the gut. I was born in Lancaster and lived there until I went away to college in New England. Lancaster was then one of the most sociologically stable areas in the country, with one of the lowest crime rates for a small city. My maternal grandmother lived on Chestnut Street when I was a kid, and I often walked to church with her. Nana used to walk all over town, including the areas around the post office and police station that can be seen in the videos at the link; it would never have occurred to her to worry about her safety.

    One more link to my childhood/teen years gone forever. Gerard and I were at opposite ends of the political spectrum as well as opposite sides of the country during our college years, but I think he can understand what I’m feeling now.

    Even given the craptastic situation of Seattle as of late, I still feel guilty of showing you around rural and ex-urban California. You lived by your most wonderful and missed mother, but has it been worth it? I’ve been hanging my head, considering your travails since.

    BTW, you’re owed some rhum, and again some (don’t be shy). The bar is open, kinda. Thank you, Herr Newsom…you dick.

    Ah yes the great innkeeper of Wunderbar speaks. I do indeed remember that ramble. One of the more stunning performances of my bit of performance art I call “Drunk in the Afternoon.” (Hemingway was going to title his book that but he was so drunk he thought the next whiskey bar was at the Bull Ring.)

    Can someone explain that TIME Magazine “cover” (that is apparently not real) to me? I’m not getting it.

  • Andrew X September 15, 2020, 8:05 AM

    Never mind. I think the prominent FOX logo there threw me, I felt I was looking at a bunch of random organizations, but I see it more clearly now. As Emily said….. Never mind!

    So which was bigger, Biden’s Michigan Trump crowd or Biden’s Michigan Biden crowd?
