      mostly natural wildfires in Oregon

    Mostly.

    Except of course for the ones set by arsonists.

    https://abc7.com/wildfire-oregon-fire-in-arson/6420067/

    SALEM, Ore. — An Oregon man was charged with arson in connection to a raging wildfire that destroyed hundreds of homes, one of the blazes gripping the West Coast with death and devastation.

    Michael Jarrod Bakkela, 41, was jailed on two charges of arson, 15 counts of criminal mischief and 14 counts of reckless endangering for a fire that was set Tuesday in the Phoenix area in southern Oregon.

    The fire merged with the raging Almeda Fire, and there is “significant damage” that police are attributing to the fire allegedly set by Bakkela, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Mike Moran told ABC News.

    “There are numerous homes, many of which are burnt completely, some are just heavily damaged, that are part of the 15 counts of criminal mischief,” Moran said.

      yes I agree

    OOG-

    Yeah I think that’s right.  Accidentally released, but then pushed out to the rest of the world because – who wants to be at a disadvantage in the global game just because they shot themselves in the foot?  Not the CCP.

    So they had to run around and shoot everyone else in the foot, just to make sure “the playing field was level.”

      economy vs NPIs

    As always, I await the GDP data from Q3 for all the affected countries.  We will then be able to see if the price paid for the lockdowns (poverty, suicides, drug overdoses, divorces, lowered immune systems, destruction of peoples livelihoods, businesses, and the like) are worth the achievement of pushing infections off into the future.

    Little known fact: people dying from economic impacts are just as dead as those dying from COVID-19.  Just that nobody calculates these deaths in real time.

      a bad coverup = no deliberate release

    2retired-

    The current leaders were part of the same cadres that killed 35-45 million of their own during the cultural revolution and the great leap forward, so the thought of sacrificing a few million would be in character, to gain advantage in the world.

    I totally agree with that – I don’t think they would have any moral qualms about deliberately releasing the virus, as long as they could keep their part in it quiet.  But I don’t think they would willingly sign up for all the economic damage – lockdowns are extremely damaging to the economy, and that would directly impact the wealth of everyone in power.

    And that directly impacts the chance of the top leadership staying in power.  There is nothing worse for The Leader than to damage the wealth of his Keys to Power.  If The Leader makes his Keys to Power poorer, he won’t last long at all.

    I also think if it were a planned release, it would have been handled more professionally.  Stories would already be in place, there would have been dead bats (or a dead bat, bitten by a now-dead pangolin, or whatever) sold by some vendor in the wet market, and so on.  There would have been a whole lot of fake evidence that would have supported their claim.  As it stands, they zapped the market in a New York Minute – it was a stone cold coverup which looked and felt and smelled – like a coverup.

    And the rest of the coverup – it felt very invented-on-the-fly by people who really didn’t know what they were doing, but were working under huge time pressure.  And they made mistakes, as people do in real time when under pressure.  Wiping that lab worker’s history from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (when other records of her remained) – a US youtuber was able to uncover this whole thing because he could read Chinese.  Just sloppy.

    Now its possible that this was a virus that was going to be released later, deliberately, but it got out by accident before the work on it was completed.  I could certainly believe that.

    The virus was clearly engineered.  I just don’t think it was deliberately released.  The coverup was just too poorly done.

    I mean, just my opinion and all.

      Dr Li Wen Liang: dead heroes better than live whistleblowers

    I found it very convenient for the CCP that Dr Li Wen Liang died “from the corona virus” at age 34.

    From that lancet chart: per 100k population, for every 34 year old who died from this virus, there were (roughly) 617 people who were older than him who also died from the virus.

    Almost entirely, this disease is an older people killer.  It is very rare for it to kill 34 year olds.  As in, a 1:617 chance per 100k population.

    I mean, sure.  It could have happened that way.  But it was awfully convenient for the CCP that it did.  Dead heroes are much better than live whistleblowers.  A dead hero will say whatever you want him to say.  A live whistleblower – very difficult to control.

    And so the hero died.  At age 34.  From the “older people killer” disease.  What are the odds?  Well, 1:617.

    FWIW, I find Li-meng Yan credible.  I’m not so sure about the “deliberate release” claim.  I’ll be interested to read her report.

      same group

    “There is zero doubt that the science is, for the most part, settled…”

    “HCQ will kill you.”

    “The protests are mostly peaceful.”

    Same group.

    Trust in institutions is in short supply these days.

      risks to world government

    QB-

    But back in the spring, a policy of hydroxychloroquine and or ivermectin along with their associated antibiotic and zinc for all would have saved lives

    And if we added free Vitamin-D supplementation for those with deficiency 10 years ago when we first noticed the issue (41% of the US: vitamin-D deficient) we might not have even seen any impact from the pandemic at all.  Heck, we could have started this at pandemic beginning, and the US lives saved would have been – maybe – 100,000 people.

    But that’s not the real issue.

    Notice what is happening.  Here we are, nattering about some problem in one small country (due to the relentless attacks by this poster who is pretty clearly paid to talk shit about Sweden) while the real criminals get a pass.

    The top-down decision provided by both the corrupt WHO and the NIH made sure that most everyone didn’t use HCQ.  Or anything else.  And they tanked trials on anything that might work.  [Perhaps that’s what you were trying to say too?]

    I now realize what the argument against a world government is.  [I didn’t before].  World government is really risky.  Once power is centralized, if an evil force seizes control over this centralized authority, they can take actions which will end up killing as many people as the Nazis did with their gas chambers – and they can do it very, very efficiently.

    That’s exactly what WHO and NIH have just accomplished.  Some evil force seized control over them, and millions died as a result.

    But here we are, talking about oxygen in Sweden.

    Wouldn’t it be interesting if the same evil agent that seized control over WHO and NIH and caused the deaths of so many people are the same ones that are now getting us to talk about oxygen use in Sweden?

      climate change; peak oil recast; a pattern

    I think it is really interesting that we came across climate change right as civilization started running low on fossil fuels.

    I mean, if I were in charge, and I wanted to get civilization (and the populations of the industrialized world) to avoid starting an earth-shattering war where we all fight over the last few drops of oil, I might ask them to – “look!  Squirrel!” – at “solving the climate change problem” instead.

    “You must stop using fossil fuels – not because we are running out (which, we are) – but because they are destroying the earth!  In TEN YEARS!!”

    [Curiously, thats right around the time when shale runs dry.]

    And of course anyone who brings this whole relatively curious coincidence up – is of course a climate change denier.  Anti-science.  Conspiracy theorist.  That sort of thing.

    And that all that fuel saved to “fight climate change” is (helpfully) now available to be used in that fleet of private jets that the billionaire class uses to run around in.  Just a coincidence, I’m sure.

    I do notice that the same group that is all in on climate change is also all in on “HCQ will kill you.”  And on pandemic treatment protocols that sum to:  “wear a mask, hide in the basement, wait for the vaccine.”  Same group that says we won’t get back to normal until we “vaccinate the whole world.”

    And while we’re at it, they want to:

    “Globalize your job, Open Borders (to debase your wages), provide Medicare for All, a Universal Basic Income (as long as you follow the rules), all funded by MMT.”

    Oh.  And “no more guns” – while we “defund the police!”

    Anyone seeing a pattern here?
