…When Summit was done, researchers analyzed the results. It was, in the words of Dr. Daniel Jacobson, lead researcher and chief scientist for computational systems biology at Oak Ridge, a “eureka moment.” The computer had revealed a new theory about how Covid-19 impacts the body: the bradykinin hypothesis. The hypothesis provides a model that explains many aspects of Covid-19, including some of its most bizarre symptoms. It also suggests 10-plus potential treatments, many of which are already FDA approved.…

Evolution Isn't Easy

Three concentric azure blue circles

…But early in this era mortals learn to kindle and maintain fire, and with the increase of inventive imagination and the improvement in tools, evolving man soon vanquishes the larger and more unwieldy animals. The early races also make extensive use of the larger flying animals. These enormous birds are able to carry one or two average-sized men for a nonstop flight of over five hundred miles. On some planets these birds are of great service since they possess a high order of intelligence, often being able to speak many words of the languages of the realm. These birds are most intelligent, very obedient, and unbelievably affectionate. Such passenger birds have been long extinct on Urantia, but your early ancestors enjoyed their services.…

Found Fr. Mychal Fallon Judge, O.F.M. picture.
Posted by: Tonypete

"In the picture, he departs from this earth like an arrow. Although he has not chosen his fate, he appears to have, in his last instants of life, embraced it. If he were not falling, he might very well be flying. He appears relaxed, hurtling through the air. He appears comfortable in the grip of unimaginable motion. He does not appear intimidated by gravity's divine suction or by what awaits him. His arms are by his side, only slightly outriggered. His left leg is bent at the knee, almost casually. His white shirt, or jacket, or frock, is billowing free of his black pants. His black high-tops are still on his feet. In all the other pictures, the people who did what he did--who jumped--appear to be struggling against horrific discrepancies of scale. They are made puny by the backdrop of the towers, which loom like colossi, and then by the event itself. Some of them are shirtless; their shoes fly off as they flail and fall; they look confused, as though trying to swim down the side of a mountain. The man in the picture, by contrast, is perfectly vertical"

Sex and Politics

Washington Post Opinion | President Trump says he supports LGBTQ Americans. His record says otherwise. Jun 4, 2019.

When accepting the Republican nomination for president, Donald Trump promised to be an ally of LGBTQ Americans.” Now that he's in the White House, Post producer Kate Woodsome notes, Trump's policies have contradicted that promise. Several Trump administration regulations, executive orders and personnel appointments are reversing Obama-era civil rights protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people.

Execrable propaganda from an Anti-Trump rag. They cite as negatives Trump's order on dysmophics in the military and protection of separate sex sports, which is entirely sensible (see my comment on the TIME article blogged earlier). Trump addressed "gay rights" versus religious rights and came down in favor of faith. All this and more slanted and unspecific crap.

Everything President Trump Has Said About The LGBTQ Community, Including Fighting For Them | TIME Jul 26, 2017
President Donald Trump announced in a series of tweets on Wednesday that the government will not allow transgender people to serve in the U.S. military. The move represents Trump’s latest flip-flop on his stance on LGBTQ rights.…

Although the video shows overwhelmingly Trump's support of the rights of homosexuals, TIME's focus is, of course, on his one order disallowing transgenders in the military. "See? See? Trump hates queers!" propaganda, of course. It's no flip-flop. Many, especially on the "left," will insist on enabling them, but people with real dysmorphic disorder represent an entirely different matter than homosexuals, and the military is no place for them.

☭NN interview with Jake Tapper. Donald Trump, who has been married three times himself, says he is for "traditional marriage." What would he say to gay couples who question his position?

Trump admits his divorces were his own fault. He says he 'believes' in traditional marriage, and cites his and Meliana's. He does not put down "gay marriage." I also believe in one man, one woman, kids as the best marriage for all concerned and for society, when it works — which, alas, is not often enough. Acknowledging what is optimal is not to say that one size fits all. ☭NN wants you to believe Trump is anti-gay, or something. If I may be allowed my own editorial opinion: Screw ☭NN.

Wars and Rumors


…Upon becoming Chancellor of Germany, Adolf Hitler had appointed Göring as Minister of the Interior for the State of Prussia, Germany's biggest and most important state, which controlled two thirds of the country, including the capital, Berlin, and the big industrial centers. As Minister of the Interior, Göring thereby had control of the police.

The first thing he did was to prohibit regular uniformed police from interfering with Nazi Brownshirts out in the streets. This meant that innocent German citizens had no one to turn to as they were being beaten up by rowdy young storm troopers drunk with their newfound power and quite often drunk on beer. These young Nazi toughs took full advantage of police leniency to loot shops at will and terrorize Jews or anyone else unfortunate enough to be caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.…

Red star hammer & sickle

A top Democratic operative says voter fraud, especially with mail-in ballots, is no myth. And he knows this because he’s been doing it, on a grand scale, for decades.… “An election that is swayed by 500 votes, 1,000 votes — it can make a difference,” the tipster said. “It could be enough to flip states.”… he not only changed ballots himself over the years, but led teams of fraudsters and mentored at least 20 operatives in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania — a critical 2020 swing state.…

"It Isn't the people who vote that count, it's the people who count the votes." Unless you can manipulate things between the vote and the count.

Modern Culture


Ace of Spades (sidebar):

Black Muslim woman (and recent university graduate, naturally!) berates the Asian owners of a boba tea shop, claiming that… Asians stole tea from blacks, and that the store should be black-owned.
By the way, a black customer of the boba tea shop defends the Asian owners; the Black Muslim woman calls that man "a coon."
What do Asians know about… Boba ("Bubble") tea. Totally a black thing! You know what else blacks invented? J-Horror and K-Pop!
These people are literally the stupidest, most ignorant, mentally-ill people the world has ever known.
Calling blacks who are not Marxists "coons" is the new fashion among Social Justice Warrior blacks because Racism Is Rilly Rilly Rilly Bad or something…
