Pennsylvania lawmakers hopeful of an audit after the Arizona election survey

Mastriano told a pool reporter that he supports Pennsylvania to do an audit like in Arizona.
 
"I'm not going to get over it. I'm just trying to figure out what went right, what went wrong? And how will we have better elections in the future? He said.

Biden's Maga

I've noted that President Joe Biden steers his administration using his rearview mirror. Whatever President Donald Trump did, he'll do the opposite. He talks about the future but seems to spend most of his time looking behind him rather than ahead.

You might assume this is a good idea, an instinct for self-preservation, because the president is an old-school Democrat heading a new-school socialist revolution. And such revolutions have a strong track record of displacing their leaders ruthlessly. Biden doesn't want to find himself stumbling out of the White House one day crying, "Et tu, Kamala?"

But his backward glances aren't the furtive and alarmed type that keep a weather eye on impending danger. Rather, they are focused and sustained, as though the president was reading a map. He uses the past as an inverted guide about what to do next. He wants, where possible, to create a carbon copy of the policies of his good friend Barack Obama — see Iran; sucking up to — but even more than that, he is determined that whatever Trump did, he'll do the opposite.

Lend an ear, and you can hear Biden mumble, "Trump cut taxes big time, so I must raise them as never before. He slashed red tape, so I'd better tangle business up in that stuff again. He wanted 'energy dominance,' so I'm going to kill fossil fuels. The orange man's signature policy was to stem illegal immigration, so I'll encourage it — maybe I can get to two million illegal immigrants in my first year, a big-time achievement. Trump investigated the origins of the Wuhan flu, so I'm going to shut that down;

Ex-CDC director Redfield says he received death threats after mentioning lab-leak theory

Robert Redfield, the former head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told Vanity Fair he received death threats after an appearance on CNN in March where he said he believed COVID-19 may have escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.

He told the magazine that "death threats flooded his inbox" from "prominent scientists," some of whom were former friends. 

"I was threatened and ostracized because I proposed another hypothesis," he said. "I expected it from politicians. I didn't expect it from science."

The Vanity Fair report said that back in January 2020, Redfield received a troubling message from Dr. George Fu Gao, the head of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Gao warned him about sickened individuals in Wuhan. The report said "Redfield immediately offered to send a team of specialists to investigate" because he had suspicions about the Wuhan Institute of Virology. If a team found antibodies in blood samples of workers there, that would be convincing evidence. China refused, he said.

We Didn’t Start The Fire

EcoHealth Alliance

In April 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2, the NIH ordered EcoHealth Alliance to cease spending the remaining $369,819 from its current NIH grant at the request of the Trump administration due to their bat research relationship with the Wuhan Institute of Virology,

Peter Daszak, a leading scientist whose organization had funded the coronavirus research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, had thanked Dr Anthony Fauci for downplaying the theory that the coronavirus may have leaked from a lab.

According to the reports, Peter Daszak, the president of EcoHealth Alliance, a research group that secured a grant to perform coronavirus research in Wuhan before the pandemic, had written a mail to Dr Fauci to say a "personal thank you" on behalf of his staff and collaborators after the latter had dismissed the idea that the pandemic started due to a lab accident in Wuhan.


Shi Zhengli - Wikipedia

The SCMP also reported that Shi was the focus of personal attacks in Chinese social media who claimed the WIV was the source of the virus, leading Shi to post: "I swear with my life, [the virus] has nothing to do with the lab", and when asked by the SCMP to comment on the attacks, Shi responded: "My time must be spent on more important matters".[24] In a March 2020 interview with Scientific American, where she was called China's "Bat Woman",[25] Shi said "Bat-borne coronaviruses will cause more outbreaks", and "We must find them before they find us."[2] Leading virologists have explained that SARS-CoV-2 is most likely of natural origin, and that it is extremely unlikely that it leaked from a lab.[26][27] Shi's colleague Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance,[28] which studies emerging infectious diseases, has noted estimates that 1–7 million people in Southeast Asia who live or work in proximity to bats are infected each year with bat coronaviruses.[26][27] In an interview with Vox, Daszak comments, "There are probably half a dozen people that do work in those labs. So let's compare 1 million to 7 million people a year to half a dozen people; it's just not logical."[27] On July 31 Science Magazine published a interview with Shi in which she commented "to date, there is zero infection of all staff and students in our institute."[29] Asked by Science Magazine why the WIV conducts coronavirus experiments in BSL-4 labs when most other scientists work with coronaviruses BSL-2 or BSL-3 conditions, Shi explained that her group also used BSL-2 and BSL-3 laboratories for their coronavirus research, but that they had begun to use BSL-4 laboratories per government regulations after the pandemic.

I would personally welcome any form of visit, based on an open, transparent, trusting, reliable and reasonable dialogue. But the specific plan is not decided by me.




The Wuhan Lab Leak Hypothesis Is A Conspiracy Theory, Not Science

Fwd: Fauci emails

Dr. Fauci mostly unfairly has been used as a punching bag by the political right.  They claim that he has contradicted himself and lied.   Fauci has stated repeatedly that as our scientific understanding of the pandemic changed, so did the advice he gave.  He also changed his advice when the CDC changed its recommendations.  

Fauci has also erred on the side of caution.  In his job, how could he not?  Before we knew if vaccinated people could still spread the disease, he was telling people to still be cautious and follow the CDC guidelines.

Part of the problem is that the political right has all along downplayed the seriousness of this pandemic.  Fourteen months ago I observed how fast this disease was spreading and predicted that millions would die.  Meanwhile, Rush Limbaugh compared COVID-19 to the common cold and other political commentators echoed his opinion.

The point I kept hearing for over a year is that Fauci changed his position on masks.   Back when COVID-19 was barely present in the United States, Fauci was saying that people didn't need to wear masks and that COVID-19 was not that big of a threat to America.  But in March of 2020, the disease exploded in the United States and Fauci changed his recommendation.  Fauci also admitted later that he did not want to see a run on masks that would create a shortage for medical professionals.

For example, I am listening to a radio program right now where the host is bitterly complaining that Fauci stated that masks weren't effective.  Although true, when evidence came out that masks helped stop the spread of the disease, he changed his position.

A couple of Fauci's emails out of thousands show that people were discussing the possibility that this disease came from a lab leak, but he still states that he thinks that this is the less likely possibility.  The reason he gives is that all the previous pandemics came from animal transmission.  Early on, the experts were saying that this did not come from a lab.  We also don't have any evidence that this was a lab leak, mainly because the Chinese government isn't cooperating.  Personally, I don't trust the Chinese government nor do I trust the safety of gain of function research.  We also don't have any evidence that this disease came from an animal.  This is another area where Fauci has changed his position, stating that it is possible that the disease came from a lab.

I have a much bigger problem with Fauci testifying under oath that the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases did not support the gain of function of research in the Wuhan lab.  However, reportedly it did support this research through an intermediary.  That appears to be a problem.

From: Larry

We came to these conclusions incrementally, spurred by evidence that accumulated over the course of a year. Tonight, we have the mother-load. Thanks to a freedom of information request from Buzzfeed, we have thousands of emails to and from Tony Fauci, going back to the early winter of 2020. Collectively, they show that from the beginning, Fauci was worried the public might conclude that COVID originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Why was Fauci be concerned that Americans would conclude that? Possibly because Tony Fauci knew perfectly well he'd funded gain-of-function experiments at that same laboratory.

The emails prove Fauci lied about this under oath. 

Consider this exchange, which began the evening of January 31, 2020. It was a Friday, just before midnight. 

The first email came from an immunologist called Kristian Andersen, who works at the Scripps Research Institute in California. Andersen warned Fauci that COVID appeared to have been manipulated in a laboratory.  

"The unusual features of the virus make up a really small part of the genome (less than point one percent), so one has to look really closely at all the sequences to see that some of the features (potentially) look engineered." 

The next day, on February 1, Tony Fauci wrote back, "Thanks, Kristian. Talk soon on the call."  

Fauci then sent an urgent email to his top deputy, Hugh Auchincloss. The subject of his email, in all-caps, was "IMPORTANT."  

"Hugh: It is essential that we speak this AM. Keep your cell phone on. Read this paper as well as the email that I will forward you know. You will have tasks today that must be done." 

Attached to the email was a document entitled, "Baric, Shi, et al -- Nature Medicine -- SARS Gain of Function.pdf." 

The "Baric" in that attachment refers to Ralph Baric, a virologist based in the United States who collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  

Baric worked with a woman called Dr. Shi Zhengli -- known as the "Bat Lady," because she manipulates coronaviruses that infect bats. 

Keep in mind that during questioning from Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, Tony Fauci denied that this same Ralph Baric had conducted gain-of-function research. Again, this is the Ralph Baric in Fauci's attachment entitled, "Baric, Shi et al - SARS Gain of Function." Yet, under oath, Fauci denied it: 

DR FAUCI:  Dr. Baric does not do gain function research. And if it is, it's according to the guidelines and it is being conducted in North Carolina…And if you look at the grant and you look at the progress reports, it is not gain function despite the fact that people tweet that.

Oh, it wasn't just on Twitter. It was in Fauci's own emails.

In retrospect, that looks a lot like perjury. We do know that starting early last year, a lot of people at NIH were worried that COVID had not occurred naturally — that it had instead been manipulated in a lab in China – and yet they seemed determined to hide that fact from the public. Why?

On the afternoon of February first last year, Fauci held a conference call with several top virologists. Most of the details of that call remain hidden from public view. They've been redacted. We know the call was related to a document entitled, "coronavirus sequence comparison."  

Jeremy Farrar, a British physician who runs a major research nonprofit, reminded everyone on the call that what they said was top-secret.  

"Information and discussion is shared in total confidence and not to be shared until agreement on next steps," he wrote. 

In other emails, Jeremy Farrar passed along an article from the website ZeroHedge, suggesting that the coronavirus might have been created as a bioweapon.  

We now know that's a more plausible explanation than the one we believed at first and were told by the media which is that coronavirus came from a pangolin.

But for the crime of saying it out loud, a more plausible explanation, ZeroHedge was banned from social media platforms. Until recently, you weren't allowed to suggest that COVID might be manmade.  

Why? The fact-checkers wouldn't allow it. Why wouldn't they? Because Tony Fauci assured the tech monopolies that the coronavirus could not have been manmade. So the tech giants shut down the topic. Fauci lied. 

FAUCI: A group of highly qualified evolutionary virologists looked at the sequences there and the sequences in bats as they evolve, and the mutations that it took to get to the point where it is now is totally consistent with a jump of a species from an animal to a human.

That was April 17, 2020. Very shortly into the course of this pandemic. At that point, what Tony Fauci just asserted as known could not have conclusively been known. That was a lie. Tony Fauci suggested that he knew because top researchers had decided conclusively, that this must have jumped naturally from an animal to a human being. That was dishonest. 

Two days later, one of the virologists Tony Fauci was funding to conduct dangerous coronavirus experiments in Wuhan wrote to thank him for the help. That man, Peter Daszak, complained to Fauci that the American tax dollars he'd taken for these experiments were being "publicly targeted by Fox News reporters." Yet he remained grateful for Tony Fauci's support. 

"I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators," he wrote. 

Strangely, most of this specific email from Daszak to Fauci has been redacted under FOIA section (b)(7)(A). That specific exemption to disclosure applies to: "records or information compiled for law enforcement purposes, but only to the extent that production could reasonably be expected to interfere with enforcement proceedings."

Fauci emails

In hindsight, Fauci keeps looking worse.

---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: Larry 

On January 31, 2020, Kristian G. Andersen, director of the Scripps Research Institute, wrote to Fauci to say that some of the SARS-CoV-2's features "(potentially) look engineered."

Andersen noted that the "unusual features" of the virus made up "a really small part" of its genome.

"We have a good team lined up to look very critically at this, so we should know much more at the end of the weekend," he wrote as part of a chain of emails.

"I should mention that after discussions earlier today, Eddie, Bob, Mike, and myself all find the genome inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory," Andersen said. "But we have to look at this much more closely and there are still further analyses to be done, so those opinions could still change."

Andersen and his team subsequently published an article in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Medicine where they wrote that they did not "believe that any type of laboratory-based scenario is plausible."

However, the article noted that more scientific data "could swing the balance of evidence to favor one hypothesis over another."

.................................

In an email on February 5, 2020, Fauci advised against wearing masks and said that face masks bought in a store would not be effective at protecting against the virus. He was replying to queries from one Sylvia Burwell, who may be to the same Sylvia Burwell who served as secretary for health and human services from 2014 to 2017.

"Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection," Fauci wrote.

"The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through material. It might, however, provide some slight benefit in keep out gross droplets if someone coughs or sneezes on you."

.................................

n an email chain released by BuzzFeed News on Tuesday night, the NIH director sent Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a link to a Mediaite article. This report noted that the Fox News anchor Bret Baier had said "multiple sources" believed COVID-19 could have originated from a Chinese lab.

The April 16 email from Collins had "conspiracy gains momentum" in the subject line. Most of the message was redacted, aside from the link to the Mediaite article. Fauci responded to the email from Collins at 2:45 a.m. on April 17, but his response was also redacted.

Biden's 'equity' agenda could lead to 'troublesome debate' in America

From: Larry 

KARL ROVE: We've come as a country to accept that we want every American to have the opportunity to rise. And if there's a need to give special help to those who come from poor circumstances, we're willing to do that as a country.  

That's a very different question to say we don't care where you are financially, but if you are Black or Bown or Asian American, you know what? You get special privileges that other people don't get. And that's going to be a very difficult and, I think troublesome, debate for the country to have. We hide behind the word equity. And that sounds nice, equitable treatment.  

But we had an agreement that we wanted equality, equality of opportunity, equity implies an equality of outcome. And we're going to therefore give aid to people based on the circumstances of their skin color, not simply the circumstances of their other financial background

When I drove by the Columbus, Indiana Best Buy, I saw a hand-drawn message on the side of the building that said, "We are with you in this!" First of all, rioters have targeted Best Buy and Target stores. Second, who isn't for justice and racial equality? I'm tired of people saying that there is systemic racism, accusing a large group of people or an entire segment of society of being racist. In the year 2020, I don't know a single person who is racist. I'm sure that there are a few bad apples, but they don't represent the rest of us.
I'm sorry that you have drunk the liberal socialist Kool-Aid. The old socialism failed both economically and to catch the imagination of the public. The new socialism only had one resource remaining to promote its agenda, which was to divide people by ethnicity and to convince them that they are victims. As long as you think that you are a victim then you lose at least some control of your life because you think that others are responsible for what happens to you. Consequently, you will look to politicians, mostly radicals, to save you from your grievances.
The tools of the radicals are violence or the threat of violence. On the surface, they want to burn it all down. They sponsor thugs to go from city to city and from state to state to incite the mobs and to commit acts of violence. This is why shop owners, men and women, are being beaten. This is why Molotov cocktails are being thrown. This is why buildings are being burned. This is why police cars are being overturned and burned.
The socialist left is not about helping people. It never has been, because the results of socialism have always been the opposite of its goals. The socialist left is about Power and making sure that they are in control. Although they claim to give power to the people, it never turns out that way. The purpose of Power is to secure it for a small group of people.
The United States is one of the most diverse and racially harmonious places on the planet. Try going to Japan, Korea, or China, and see how racially tolerant they are.
The most prosperous and stable societies are the ones where people respect each other and the rule of law. The more we diverge from that then the more we degrade society and our common interests.
What we are seeing can bring down a society and lead to radical extremists rising up. I don't think that it will happen here, but the violence hurts the cause of the peaceful protestors who have legitimate grievances. And almost everyone wants to see justice done. We are with you in this!

From: Larry


Long before the onset of COVID-19, the luminaries of Silicon Valley began advocating for the implementation of universal basic income (UBI). This is the idea that governments should issue checks to all citizens regardless of work, regardless of need, just for being alive - in other words, true and direct socialistic redistribution of wealth, completely disconnected from merit and creation.

Today, it is clear that UBI proponents, along with advocates of job-killing $15-an-hour minimum wage policies, are using the economic destruction wrought by poorly thought out COVID-19 lockdowns, coupled with the psychological effects of constant fearmongering, to try to slip their policies in through the back door.

The scope and permanence of these changes could be enormous. Over the course of 2020, the amount of global work lost was likely equivalent to 255 million full-time jobs. Ultimately, economists at the University of Chicago predict that between 32 percent to 42 percent of COVID-19-related layoffs may end up being "permanent.

Beyond the expedited automation and elimination of jobs, Biden's artificial attempt to drive up the cost of labor is also spurring inflation. Consumer prices were up 4.2 percent in April of this year over April 2020

Therein lies the rub. As the left has been building their socialist bona fides by advocating for "giving out cash with no strings attached," they are - in real time - destroying real opportunities to earn wages, start careers, gain skills, climb the ladder, and live the American Dream. Simultaneously, the chain of events set in motion, if left unchecked, will drive up the cost of living for those the left claims to want to help.

Further consider the fact that America's national debt now sits at $28 trillion and growing, troublingly larger than our country's 2020 GDP of $21.48 trillion. The money dispersed by the federal government today is literally borrowed on the backs of future generations who will struggle to pay it off.

Beyond that, were UBI advocates to get their way with the installment of never-ending cash payments issued from the government to individuals, how would a republic such as the United States sustain itself? Can you have a self-governing country in which a majority of the citizenry is to some degree dependent on government officials for the issuance of a monthly income check?

No, of course not...

To spur real, market-driven wage growth such as that America experienced during the Trump administration before the pandemic, our economy must be fully opened, with no restrictions. Growth must be coaxed through low and consistent tax rates that encourage sound investment on the part of the American people and American businesses. 

Wages will grow and workers will prosper when our economy grows and prospers. But for that to happen, the Biden administration and Congress need to get out of the way and stop destroying opportunities for real growth and advancement.
