    A new research study finds that the drug Fenofibrate — which is used to help keep cholesterol levels low — can potentially help treat patients suffering from the coronavirus. The study, which was recently highlighted by Knowridge, relays that the coronavirus typically impacts the body’s ability to burn carbohydrates. This, in turn, causes “large amounts of fat to accumulate inside lung cells, a condition the virus needs in order to reproduce.”... ...One of the study’s authors, Professor Yaakov Nahmias, adds: We showed that the human lungs responded to the SARS-CoV-2 virus by completely changing their metabolism, causing a major buildup...

    China’s recent COVID-19 outbreaks in the northeast have come from travelers entering the country or contaminated frozen food imports, the National Health Commission (NHC) said on Saturday. “Since Dec. 2020, epidemic clusters have occurred in Beijing, Sichuan, Liaoning, Hebei and Heilongjiang,” a statement posted on the NHC’s website said citing the briefing by Ma. “They mainly have the following characteristics. Firstly, they are all imported from abroad, caused by travelers from overseas, or contaminated cold-chain imported items.” Total case numbers remain well below what China saw at the height of the outbreak in early 2020, but concerns about a new...
  • The NYC exodus that de Blasio refuses to see

    Mayor de Blasio released his new, bigger-than-ever city budget this week pretending that federal aid would make up for City Hall’s losses thanks to the pandemic. And, worse than that delusion, he still hasn’t faced up to how his policies had New York shrinking long before the pandemic even began. That’s right: The mass exodus from the city dates to at least 2018; the flight since then is just adding to New York’s woes. The Health Department’s 2018 Vital Statistics report on health outcomes showed that the Big Apple’s population dropped by 223,950 residents, or 2.6 percent, between 2017 and...
  • Alex Azar on Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Coverup of Pandemic: We Learned About the Coronavirus From Taiwan

    Health Secretary Alex Azar on Thursday reminded Americans of how Beijing, about a year ago, had held back the truth about the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus outbreak, allowing it to turn into a global crisis.Azar, during a speech at conservative think tank Heritage Foundation, said the early U.S. response to the CCP virus was particularly difficult because the virus emerged in China, which, given the nature of the communist regime, “severely limited” outside access to information about it.“Let’s consider when and how the United States became aware of the virus,” the nation’s health chief said. “We learned about an...

    A recent study by researchers at Yale School of Medicine, New York University Langone Health and Washington University School of Medicine, claims that the ketogenic diet (high fat, low carbohydrate diet) is capable of mitigating clinical outcomes of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in elderly people by improving immune-metabolic functions and reducing inflammation. The study is currently available on the bioRxiv* preprint server.

    I've tried to find TV viewer ratings for Dementia Joe's 1/14/2021 live speech re: his $1.9 trillion porkulus bill, allegedly for "covid relief." I can't find anything on TV ratings, how many people watched, and I certainly didn't watch. Were the ratings so bad that the Fake News is trying to cover this story up?

    Atilis Gym co-owner Ian Smith has made a name for himself for standing up to New Jersey’s COVID-19 restrictions on businesses, despite Governor Phil Murphy’s repeated attempts to shut him down through citations, fines, arrests, having their business license stripped, and their doors locked and barricaded. This week, Murphy escalated the fight. “As of this morning, without warning, and without permission, and in the middle of litigation, Governor Murphy took it upon himself to empty our bank account entirely, to the tune of $165,000,” explained Smith on a video posted to social media. He said it still wouldn’t stop him....

    LONDON - People across the world are generally likely to say yes to getting a COVID-19 vaccine, but would be more distrustful of shots made in China or Russia than those developed in Germany or the United States, an international poll showed on Friday. The survey, conducted by the polling company YouGov and shared exclusively with Reuters, found Britons and Danes were the most willing to take the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them, while the French and Poles were more likely to be hesitant. The poll was based on questions put to almost 19,000 people. Friday’s YouGov...

    TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - The U.S. government executed a drug trafficker Thursday for slaying seven people in a burst of violence in Virginia’s capital in 1992, with some witnesses in the death-chamber building applauding as the 52-year-old was pronounced dead. Corey Johnson’s execution went ahead after his lawyers scrambled to stop it on grounds that the lethal injection of pentobarbital would cause him excruciating pain due to lung damage from his coronavirus infection last month. Johnson was implicated with playing a role in one of the worst bursts of gang violence Richmond had ever seen, with 11 people killed in...

    Tom Cruise has shelled out “huge sums” for two high-tech robots to enforce coronavirus safety protocols on the set of “Mission: Impossible 7” – and also administer spot tests to the crew, according to a report. “Tom is so serious about making sure the shoot isn’t shut down that he’s splashed out on these robots as he can’t be everywhere to ensure people are behaving themselves,” a source on the set told The Sun. Shooting resumes this week in the UK before the production heads to Dubai, the source said. The 58-year-old megastar — who recently blew up at two...

Fifty-three percent of the 1,000 Americans surveyed said that they do not believe that the U.S. is winning the war against the Wuhan virus, although 28 percent said the opposite. Nineteen percent indicated they remain unsure.

    Post-COVID world an “absolute” surveillance state.. As part of the post-COVID “new normal” in China, which has been heralded by many in the west for its lockdown policies, some citizens now have to scan a government tracking app before being allowed to re-enter their own homes. That’s according to a reader who has lived in China on and off since 2002 and owns a home and company there. According to the reader, life isn’t back to what it was before the pandemic and has in fact changed drastically. “Prior to the crisis, the population could move around freely without...

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took aim at California’s choking COVID-19 restrictions yesterday. He also scorched California Governor Gavin Newsom and other elite decision makers in the state who live by a different set of rules than the ones they order average Californians to obey. Rodgers, who is a California native, was a guest on “The Pat McAfee Show.” He took some time skewer how his home state is handling the pandemic.

Melbourne resident Kevin Celli-Bird said he discovered the exhausted bird in his backyard on Dec. 26 after it had disappeared from a race in Oregon on Oct. 29, The Associated Press reported.
  • Reminding Leftists What 'Fascist' Means

    01/14/2021 9:00:10 AM PST · by Kaslin · 36 replies ^ | January 14, 2021 | Rob Jankins
    Leftists love to throw around the word “fascist,” although half the time they don’t appear to even know what it means. Usually, it’s just a way of insulting someone unenlightened enough to disagree with them. At best, they’re calling the person a big meanie, an authoritarian. But that’s not exactly (or at least not entirely) what a “fascist” is. Perhaps, for our leftist friends, a brief primer is in order. Fascism is a political and economic system that arose in Europe following World War I. It has three primary characteristics: extreme nationalism, authoritarianism, and a state-run economy. Indeed, in terms...
