A THREAD: The research, study, or theory that bona fide human treatment, medicine, or vitamins would not hurt, and may indeed help fight COVID-19, followed by the resulting reaction from media and government. We start with...

UV light treatment vs. "Drinking/injecting bleach."
Hydroxychloroquine vs. "Fish tank cleaner." (Conflating hydroxychloroquine with chloroquine phosphate, a completely different chemical compound.)
Ivermectin vs. "Horse dewormer." The media took this false narrative to such a frenzy, conflating Nobel Prize-winning, prescribed, human ivermectin with veterinarian-grade medication that the U.S. FDA even jumped aboard the mockery.
Vitamin D vs. "Side effects" warnings. Yes, too much vitamin D (or any other vitamin for that matter) causes side effects. We've known this forever. Seems an odd time for this sudden warning when so many are also deficient, putting them at risk.
Aspirin vs. "Breaking new study warns people to no longer take it as preventive medicine." This was that "Settled Science" we heard about for decades. And just as new research shows it could fight COVID-19, different research says not to take it anymore.

While watching this, imagine it's narrated by someone who just smoked way too much really good reefer.
Same energy.

The world suddenly is seeing shortages, and more now than in early 2020 when almost everywhere was shut down tight.
We're seeing this everywhere now. Cargo ships loitering off ports, unable to pull into port.

President Biden promised retaliation for the attack that killed 13 U.S. military members and many more civilians. This is the result. A horrific thread:
The Taliban has gone on to install into government four out of the five prisoners former President Obama released in a deal to free traitor Bowie Bergdahl. SAR missions for Bergdahl resulted in half a dozen U.S. troops killed and more injured.
Meanwhile, after being told repeatedly that we evacuated thousands and thousands of people, we still have Americans trapped there, and most of the Afghan allies to the U.S. never made it out. The Taliban has been hunting them down.

You support vaccine mandates. Cool. The next question to ask then, since obesity is a factor in the vast majority of Covid deaths, do you support government-mandated diet restriction and/or mandatory weight loss programs?

If it's the government's job to mandate your health...
Obesity is a major factor in roughly three quarters of all Covid deaths. Eliminating obesity obviously would not eliminate all related deaths, but simple mathematics would suggest that number would be reduced by a quarter, giving at least similar numbers to vaccinations.
Simple statistics show that eliminating obesity would eliminate hundreds of thousands of Covid deaths (and additional hundreds of thousands of non-Covid obesity-related deaths). Surely this is as compelling an argument for a government mandate as a vaccine.

He didn’t leave Camp David earlier because “he didn’t want to leave earlier, still hopeful for his country?”

Was he fearful his country might have fallen into chaos? War? This sounds like Neville Chamberlain talking about England being bombed by the Germans.
Seriously, he didn't want to come back from his vacation retreat earlier because he was “still hopeful for his country?”

Does he think the reports of the Taliban taking over are about events in America? Does he see video of Kabul and think it's Cleveland?
Or is he so addlepated that he's not even being told anything other that to go out every once in a while and read a quick script on how we're winning the war, production is up, and rations are doubled?

Ah, home sweet home, California! (Not for too much longer if I can help it.)
But honestly, sitting around for two days without power or internet wondering what a huge nearby fire in unpredictable winds will do is... suboptimal.
