I am very appreciative of the latest iteration of corporate fear porn surrounding the OMICRON VARIANT. In fact, I think it’s hilarious. And also helpful for the resistance against the technocratic dystopia the global sociopaths are desperately trying to impose on populations they see as human cattle.
Yesterday, while sociopath-enablers were tweeting their hateful bullshit online, I attended the rally against employer-enforced jab mandates in Missoula. This rally was part of a state-wide show of support for individuals who refuse to get jabbed. By the time I left (around 2:45pm) there were at least a hundred people lining Reserve Street.
I introduced myself to nurse Sarah O’Hara, who received her religious exemption recently, but knows colleagues at St. Pats who were denied. Did any media outlet besides KGVO cover this? My cursory search of the Missoulian and other media platforms didn’t turn up much regarding the protest, but I DID discover that Madonna got her third tattoo, completing a tattoo trilogy!
I know this is VERY IMPORTANT news, and I’m glad the Missoulian is there (kind of) to inform their readers of the latest ink to be needled into Madonna’s skin, and NOT the required, needle-facilitated injection of a Pharma product being forced on the non-compliant like a male rapist shoving his cock into his desired target.
If you think my rape metaphor is inappropriate, then you clearly haven’t been spending time on Twitter where the psychotic blue check marks are wishing death on people like me. If anything, my rape metaphor is too tame. Here’s an example of what I’m talking about:
After seeing this tweet, my first thought was WHO THE HELL IS JERRY SALTZ? I did some quick Googling to find out Saltz is the senior art critic at New York Magazine. And even though this sophisticated luminary thinks he’s 97% protected, he still wants the non-compliant to die. What a moronic fuck.
Speaking of moronic fucks, here’s another screen shot of Twitter warriors trying to understand what kind of people are showing up to these anti-mandate rallies. The main moron on this brief Twitter thread is the owner of Erotique, a sex shop in Bozeman. Here’s a shot of Billy from his website:
And here’s Billy with some other sharp tools from the liberal tool box trying to figure out why there are kids and smiles instead of rage and guns:
I know I should probably be more angry than I am, but the absurdity of the OMICRAP HILLARIANT is just too funny to take seriously. I also think this latest fear campaign by corporate media runs the risk of being a catalyst for Covidians to question their faith in THE SCIENCE and Big Pharma.
Am I being too optimistic? Probably, but on this unseasonably warm Monday after a wonderful Thanksgiving break, I can’t help but feel VERY GOOD about what’s afoot in Zoom Town.
Thanks for reading, and stay tuned. December is going to be one heck of a month.
Are we really in a pandemic or is this just a test of our intelligence?
Sites like yours, MissoulaTyranny, and KGVO are the only Missoula news sources that even ran articles about the Mandate Protests before, during or after they happened. People need too remember that when they decide who to go to for their daily news.
The Missoulian, MissoulaCurrent, KPAX, NBCMontana, etc, all ignored the Mandate Protests, showing their colluding biases, and lack of respect for differing opinions. They only want you to obey, comply and follow the narrative, never think for yourself.
Yeah the Montana mainstream media is definitely colluding to keep this from the masses. That’s why the Helena IR, KTVQ, Billings Gazette all have coverage.
In case you have not noticed, the media is a giant monolith. This pandemic is so well planned that there was no media outlet that would allow anyone to criticize WHO or CDC. Even a little neighborhood site I used, Next Door, was censoring. Our local newspaper, Canyon Courier, very small circulation, would not print letters that were critical of official truth. So no, you’re rally will not be covered.
As I understand the process by which variants (mutations) are created, it is a process done “in silico” and by alignment. They do not have an actual genome for SARS-CoV-2, but many labs have created them … they take a remnant or two of what was called SARS-CoV-1, itself never isolated or purified, and then complete it using a computer program that inserts missing data. Since no two labs do this process and get the same results, each different outcome is labeled a mutation or variant. It’s just a random difference in process. There is no actual virus.
It is junk science, to be kind.
Not a scintilla of truth to that, Mark, which is why you provide no evidence. Another victim of Dichotomist Thought Syndrome (DTS) — the dysfunction of reasoning by which an individual reaches conclusions on a specific query not on the basis of evidence germane to that query, but rather solely upon the individual’s separately-derived opinions of an individual or institution with a major role in the matter under controversy. Those latter opinions may be well-founded, evidence-based or otherwise rational, or not; the essence of DTS is the substantial, deliberate indifference to substantially all extrinsic evidence in the new query, instead reaching a conclusion based solely upon the prior opinion(s).
In my opinion, you’ve got a rip-roaring case of DTS, and it’s exacerbated by your strange beliefs concerning the lineage of SARS-CoV-2, which are, “to be kind,” worse than junk science, as they are nonsense that you and/or others have made up. (It’s more painful to see Travis, with his stellar intelligence and capacity for brilliant insights, fallen down the DTS rabbit hole on matters related to the pandemic. But I’m addressing your comment, here). The manifestation here of DTS is to embrace all manner of false and unsupportable conspiracy theories based not upon evidence, but solely upon the concededly well-founded conclusion that Big Pharma is generally a greedy, powerful arm of Big Capital that exerts major unethical and corrupt influence over pharmaceutical regulation and health care delivery (a conclusion that is beyond reasonable dispute). Here, DTS results in your adoption of pure bullshit, taken up one at a time, below:
(1) “…the process by which variants (mutations) are created … is a process done ‘in silico’ [sic] and by alignment.” WHAT?
Mutations are errors in replication. When they make a virus or living organism less fit, the thing either becomes extinct or isolated, and when the errors make the thing more fit, the thing thrives. It’s natural selection.
You should know that these SARS coronaviruses are unenveloped, positive-sense, single-stranded RNA viruses. RNA viruses are very prone to replication errors. There are errors every time it infects a cell and is duplicated. When copies of the virus are made inside an infected cell via the viral RNA’s “hijacking” of the infected cell’s genetic machinery, some bases randomly fail to replicate and others randomly have substitutions of the wrong base at various points of the replicated RNA. Some of these errors result in failure of replication, whereas others “take” and continue to be duplicated as the RNA replicates. Multiple errors can accumulate. Some of them don’t have any effect on the virus’s activity, whereas others result in the virus acquiring properties that enable it to attach to cell surfaces more easily, to penetrate cells more easily, to evade immune system defenses, etc. There are hundreds and hundreds of coronaviruses, that infect different, and in some cases multiple, species.
The first pandemic of a deadly human-infecting coronavirus was the SARS-CoV-1 virus that broke out in 2002. The next was the “MERS” virus. Now we have the SARS-2-CoV virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic. All three have lineages traced to horsehoe bats.
It was INEVITABLE that variants would emerge from the SARS-CoV-2 wild virus that broke out in Wuhan. The variants are named and classified according to the loci and type of mutuation and are also given nicknames which in the case of SARS-CoV-2 follow the Greek alphabet. The latest, more fit variant to make news is one first obseved in South Africa (which does not necessaily mean it emerged there), the “omicron” variant.
(2) “They do not have an actual genome for SARS-CoV-2, but many labs have created them.” Where are you finding this crap? SARS-Cov-2 was swiftly sequenced once isolated from patients. Your statement is a fucking lie, to be blunt.
(3) “…they take a remnant or two of what was called SARS-CoV-1, itself never isolated or purified, and then complete it using a computer program that inserts missing data.”
MORE BULLSHIT! SARS-Cov-1 was sequenced long ago. Both CDC and Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnepeg, Manitoba, using samples from patients hispiytalized in Toronto, sequenced the virus in April, 2003. On April 12, 2003, scientists at the Michael Smith Genome Sciences Center in Vancouver, B.C. completed the mapping of the viral genome, colaborating with colleagues at the Brithish Columbia Centre for Disease Control and NML. Later that month, WHO confirmed that multiple labs had isolated the same virus from patients gravely with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The case fatality rate for SARS-CoV-1 was 9%; patients older than 60, however, had a 50% mortality rate. WHO announced that the sequencing had been accomplished with “unprecedented speed.”
Similarly, MERS-CoV (aka EMC/2012 or HCoV-EMC/2012) was reported in April, 2012, after it was isolated by Egyptian virologist Ali Mohammed Zaki, from a sputum sample of a patient who was very ill with a new flu-like respiratory illness that had broken our in the Middle East. A Qatar patient’s lung sputum yielded isolation in September, 2012 of a virus that was sequenced identically to the April isolate. Addition cases in Qatar and Saudi Arabia, with the same sequencing results, appeared in November, 2012. And so on. WHO flagged it as a likely cause of a future epidemic. It infected bats, camels and humans. The last case repported was in 2019; 2494 cases total were reported, with 858 deaths, a case fatality rate greater than 30%. It did not, however efficiently transmit from person-to-person. Further research indicated that the virus had probably been circulating in the human population for at least a year prior to the outbreak.
All three of these pandemic novel coronaviruses infect epthelial respiratory tissue. SARS-CoV-1
(4) “Since no two labs do this process and get the same results, each different outcome is labeled a mutation or variant. It’s just a random difference in process.”
UTTER GARBAGE! You seem to be saying that CRISPR is being used to create “mutations” and “variants” of SARS-CoV-1 and these are the variants of SARS-C0V-2 that we have now. There are so many reasons this is wrong, that I won’t begin to enumerate them.
(5) “There is no actual virus.” This one takes the cake, because it contradicts your other four claims. If “there is no virus,” then how could labs be creating the variants, as you claim, by randomly adding bases (apparently) to the SARS-CoV-2 sequence you claim is incomplete…SARS-CoV-1 being a virus you claim was never isolated?
Do you have any clue how embarrassingly silly these statements make you look? Obviously not. Suffice it to say that you serve only to propagate dangerous disinformation to persons ignorant of the subject matter who don’t fact-check and who are gullible.

Start researching your sources on Small Pox, Kev.
Cause it’ll be here by the November mid terms.
P.S. Please excuse my typos.
No one cares about your diatribes. You are so divorced from the common man’s reality, it’s not even funny. Your high-brow, convoluted language turns people off. You’re educated enough to realize this, but you don’t care. You think providing paragraphs of text will endeare you…to who, exactly?
Please, just stop.
Your ability to convince on this blog went out the window a long time ago. At this point, it’s just pathetic.
I’ll take commentary from Kevin over Mark Tokarski any day.
I specifically said Missoula news, not Montana. Clearly you work for the MSM, because you are trying to move the goal posts, a logical fallacy that only the MSM Cabal would use that blatantly.
