  • Why did scientists suppress the lab-leak theory

    Now we know what those leading scientists really thought. Emails exchanged between them after a conference call on 1 February 2020, and only now forced into the public domain by Republicans in the US Congress, show that they not only thought the virus might have leaked from a lab, but they also went much further in private. They thought the genome sequence of the new virus showed a strong likelihood of having been deliberately manipulated or accidentally mutated in the lab. Yet later they drafted an article for a scientific journal arguing that the suggestion not just of a manipulated...

    No real description of the video, other than the title, so here's mine for those too busy to watch long videos: Fascinating discussion of LtCol. Scheller's career, his values, and why he chose to expose the failures of America's senior military leaders and America's botched "war on terror" as the hill he would die on. He sacrificed his reputation, his career and his marriage for his Marines and his country.

  • Do .22 Mag. Snubnose Revolvers Make Sense for Self-Defense?

    NRA Women ^ | November 30, 2020 | B. GIL HORMAN
    These little wheelguns pack more punch than .22 LR pistols. But is it enough to get the job done? In a previous article we took a closer look at using .22 LR pistols for self defense. The conversation was inspired by the release of new rimfire models that look and carry like center-fire models. However, the second most popular rimfire rifle cartridge in the United States, the .22 WMR, has also been pressed into service as a low-recoil defensive option. More commonly known as the .22 Magnum, or just .22 Mag., this rimfire cartridge is carried more often than some...

    The last year has been pretty interesting, to say the least. It is hard to accurately interpret the information from the recent gun-buying trend. Normally, popularity is focused on what is selling and what is not. This type of sales information greatly helps the industry adjust and innovate. However, a pandemic, rioting and calls to defund the police have changed the paradigm so that just about anything that goes bang is (or at least was) selling. The other problem is restocking and being able to keep the best performers on the shelves. There were several cases where I was...

    The nation’s large and diverse group of Hispanic voters is showing signs of dividing its support between Democrats and Republicans more evenly than in recent elections, a new Wall Street Journal poll finds, a troubling development for the Democratic Party, which has long counted on outsize Hispanic support. One year after giving Democratic House candidates more than 60% of their vote, according to polls at the time, the Journal survey found that Hispanic voters are evenly split in their choice for Congress. Asked which party they would back if the election were today, 37% of Hispanic voters said they would...

    On Friday, Dr. Anthony Fauci finally admitted the chilling truth about the COVID-19 vaccines, saying that they did not work as advertised and that Americans are in danger due to their waning immunity. Fauci told The New York Times that officials are starting to see some waning immunity against both infection and hospitalization several months after the initial vaccination. He then cited data from Israel, which he said tends to be about a month to a month and a half ahead of us in terms of the outbreak. “They are seeing a waning of immunity not only against infection but...
  • A broadly neutralizing antibody protects against SARS-CoV, pre-emergent bat CoVs, and SARS-CoV-2 variants in mice

    NIH PMC ^ | 04/28/2021 | David Martinez and others
    Abstract SARS-CoV in 2003, SARS-CoV-2 in 2019, and SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern (VOC) can cause deadly infections, underlining the importance of developing broadly effective countermeasures against Group 2B Sarbecoviruses, which could be key in the rapid prevention and mitigation of future zoonotic events. Here, we demonstrate the neutralization of SARS-CoV, bat CoVs WIV-1 and RsSHC014, and SARS-CoV-2 variants D614G, B.1.1.7, B.1.429, B1.351 by a receptor-binding domain (RBD)-specific antibody DH1047. Prophylactic and therapeutic treatment with DH1047 demonstrated protection against SARS-CoV, WIV-1, RsSHC014, and SARS-CoV-2 B1.351infection in mice. Binding and structural analysis showed high affinity binding of DH1047 to an epitope that...
