The Fate of Initiative 65 — The Mississippi Supreme Court will hold oral arguments on April 13 to decide the fate of Initiative 65, which was passed by a 74 percent majority of Mississippians to put in place a medical marijuana program in the state.
Our Governor said the Center for Disease Control’s recently reinstated mask guidelines are foolish. The reporter who covered his Neshoba County Fair speech noted he said this despite “rocketing numbers of COVID-19 cases in the state according to WAPT”. Did the Mississippi State Department of Health fall in line with the Governor? No. It parroted the CDC. Why? Because, you know, more cases, and The Science, and the narrative. Also, the arrogant guild of unelected bureaucrats and their agencies aren’t responsible to the voters.
There are lots of narratives spinning Dr. Fauci’s role in the pandemic* – including his self-serving ones. Which to believe? Maybe none. Diogenes might not find an honest man or woman anywhere among today’s narrative makers.
COVID-19 has been labeled a pandemic. It should probably be labeled pandemic* ( to note unnatural – manmade or Batwoman made). It is reported to have caused or to have been involved in 3.5 million deaths to date. That’s about 4/100 of 1% of the world’s 7.9 billion inhabitants today. It wouldn’t register on the Richter scale of historic pandemics – if there were such a thing. But it happened in the age of ubiquitous iPhones and Androids, talking heads, scripted narratives, and social media censorship.
The Bat Lady is a researcher at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China. Her name is Dr. Shi Zheng-li . She goes on virus-hunting expeditions in bat caves and does “gain of function” genetic manipulations on coronaviruses to make them more infectious and more deadly to humans. The COVID-19 pandemic may have begun in her lab — which was funded in part by U.S. taxpayers.
Groucho Marx, when caught in a compromised condition, retorted: “Who you gonna believe — me or your lying eyes?” Although Chico may have actually said it first, it’s attributed to Groucho. And that has become the popular narrative. So it’s become the truth. Kind of like “deaths with COVID-19” have become “deaths from COVID-19” as the coronavirus pandemic has grown. And “positive tests for COVID-19” have become “COVID-19 cases.”
