Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)


My patriot thanks to the state of Georgia for correcting a series of abysmal election defects that did do near term irreputable damage to our Republic.

Thank God this general assembly is attempting to right a terrible wrong - the state sanctioned monopoly of OUR health care.

The Leftist Democratic Socialists, standing in unison against Free and Fair Elections, reminds all with a full working brain that we all should be thankful for the Democratic Socialists' typical Double Standard, for without which, they would have no standards at all.

These are the doddering mumblings of a Leftist Fool, acting as the Great Divider in Chief, but actually just an Executive Meat Puppet to Leftist Non Patriots who wish to remake OUR society into something where they can control a supplicant and stupid people.

It seems the biggest question these days is, are there any government agencies that are NOT rogue.

Biden's tax plan will put heavier taxes on American businesses that operate in the United States than Communist China charges American businesses that operate there. That will drive manufacturing away from the US and to places like China. This plan is pro-China, not pro-America. The "Build Back Better" slogan comes from the neo-Marxism World Economic Forum's "Great Reset". Another slogan of the Great Reset is "you will own nothing and you will be happy".

Keep the Coast Guard independent of the Joint Chiefs. If they become a full member a lot of new rules kick in. None of them will be good for civilians.
This is another attempt by the liberals to gain control of all of us.

It is sad that almost all of the government institutions we have been taught to believe are incredibly honest are dens of thieves and liars. Until the head of the FBI snake is cut off we are all at risk. The head of the snake is the entire Justice Department building in Washington DC.

The FBI was completely politicized under the Obama regime. It behaves more like the East German Stasi these days. The rot is too deep. The FBI needs to be repealed and replaced by a more honest and non-political agency.

These Democratic Socialist words - strung together basically to placate their nonproductive, practicing victimhood voting block - are lies told to an poorly educated people, who are loyal to those, Democratic Socialist operatives, who make a living by taking from one to give to another, while knowing little themselves, as well, as non patriot political hacks.

Solar and wind energy greatly increase electric rates everywhere they are imposed. Germany now pays three times as much as we do in North Carolina, due to large scale use of wind and solar, and it is increasing rapidly. The state of South Australia in going to 50% wind and solar also went from the cheapest residential electric rates in the world to the most expensive. We do not need the wind and solar boondoggle in the US or in NC.

What has been done in this country regarding the virus, very little was about the virus, most all of it was about people control.
All you had to do was listen to Fuaci to know he was a fraud. One of the first things he said is that mask will protect the medical workers but will do nothing to protect the general population. How does a mask know who is wearing it and where it is being worn. Then mask gained magical powers to protect everyone.

It is alarming seeing the speed and magnitude of the disasters piling up at just the beginning of the Biden/Harris Administration. The biggest question I have for the Sniff and Blow team is this: Who is it that is writing the script for you two jokers? You know, like the card Joe kept reading from in that phony news conference last week. Who wrote the script Joe? Americans have aright to know who is running this insane asylum.

Another thing to remember about ZOOM is that it is full of spyware that is very hard to get off your computer. I know people that have had accounts hacked, passwords changed, etc. after they installed and started using ZOOM.
Commented: Sunday, March 28th, 2021 @ 7:02 am By: Countrygirl1411
The other important thing to remember about Zoom is that although it is technically an American company, almost all of its operations are in China, meaning anything said or done on Zoom is easily accessible to China's spymasters.

Seems to me the main "source if disinformation" is coming from the High Office of Sheriff (i.e., Barney). I personally don't believe Keith Kidwell would go off half cocked and say what is attributed to him, seeing as how a committee is studying the issue of whether a county police force would be better than what we now have. I would choose to believe he would wait until all the facts and information are in before he takes a position. I could be wrong but this seems so far-fetched that I can't believe it until Keith confirms it publically. I would expect that whatever he said to Barney was taken by Barney for what he wanted said. We shall see.
Commented: Saturday, March 27th, 2021 @ 10:38 am By: Uncle Jeb
Pretty Much Uncle Jeb and we will be doing this for 3 more years.

The great irony here is that the commissioner(s) participating in this disinformation campaign is /are the same commissioner(s) who pushed for this yearly blanket of an SRO in every school in the first place when this initiative was put into place.

I have said my piece that I would go a different route, not because in would require less less funding, but because it would provide a far greater envelope of safety. That direction would be to have precise and immediate lockdown mechanism(s), with most classrooms and common areas protected by conspicuously random fire power.

I would still keep the SROs in the high schools however.

I'm sure there will be a huge influx of locals being targeted by this story. But it is very apparent that our Sheriff is acting very strange. Something is amiss with his actions. I find it hard to believe that he is the highest of high positions in this county. Everyone has someone to answer to, or else that person is a dictator. We need to know which way this fiasco rolls.
Commented: Saturday, March 27th, 2021 @ 9:31 am By: Clifton Pyle
So let me get this straight. Barney lied. He made it appear that the Commissioners "defunded the police." Actually it appears the Commissioners appropriated $650K to cover the need the Sheriff created by backing out of the MOU. Do I have this correct Barney?
Is it true or not that you tried to blackmail the Boards to give you more money or you would take your toys and go home?
Seems to me there has been no "defunding" unless the Commissioners cut the "Office of Sheriff" by $650K in the next budget. And that is precisely what they should do. At least.
Will look forward to your next press release.

Amazon is one of the censorship organs of the far left. Nobody who values free speech should ever buy anything from them, most especially a book. There are other online vendors who do not have the far left political baggage of Amazon.

Great assessment, and I had a talk with The Hood about this today.

This is not a partisan issue; this is a common sense issue. As a real Conservative, I am always searching, seeking the common sense perspective has always been a constant process for me.
Commented: Friday, March 26th, 2021 @ 9:41 pm By: Stan Deatherage
Here's my take. I'll sum it quickly:

This has "distraction" written all over it. Note that the whole "defunding the sheriff's office" hullabaloo started on social media. Are the Cypr....BOCO swamp creatures purposely misleading the less informed through "GOP" members?

Think "projection".

Thanks Uncle Jeb for your update on local matters here in the real.

You definitely brought forward the court house issue that occurred while I was taking a break from the commission, and the way you presented it revealed quite a number fluent ironies.

The issue that I have with this political movement by the Sheriff right now is his gross misrepresentation of commissioners defunding his office when we have spent record amounts of money to sustain his administration, often begrudgingly.

This needs to be well discussed during the Beaufort County County 2021 /2022 Fiscal Budget sessions.

I encourage your readers of Doofus Ernie’s diatribe to brush up on the “Nepolonic Complex” and apply it to this “press release.”
Little Ernie is a bully. He has to boast to try to compensate for his well-known shortcomings and insecurities.
He refused to provide security for our courthouse so the judges hired a rent-a-cop outfit to do it. Turned out fine.
He tried to blackmail the School Board and they did the same thing.
Bullying is not a good idea Ernie. You don’t bite the hand that feeds you.
Little Barney (I mean Ernie) has spent more money than any Sheriff in Beaufort County’s history and most of it has never been accounted for. Call 911 and ask for a deputy to be sent out to your place and see how long it takes to get there, if at all. While Barney’s spending has gone up, the population has gone down. Take out the street punks he drags in for dope and there’s not much left that could be called crime fighting. But this you can count on. Barney and his top Elite will be driving the highest priced vehicles you can buy.

This is EXACTLY the same modus operandi used by the Communists in Europe after the Second World War. Stalin gave orders to his party members in all of Europe to infiltrate, demonstrate in the streets, riot, murder, illegally and surreptitiously change "rules" and laws to suit themselves; sow FEAR and discord through misinformation and disinformation; deflect attention to the discredited and defeated threat of German Naziism, and destroy the hope of rebuilding economies all over Europe. In France, the Communist surge was finally quashed when 80,000 Reservists were activated and ordered to shoot rioters. That broke it up. It seems to me that Democrats are doing exactly the same thing with the National Guard in Washington, D.C. at this very moment. Unfortunately, Eastern Europe, which had been 'liberated' by the Red Army and was directly under Stalin's control, were condemned to live under Communist mismanagement for the rest of the 2oth century. There are more than a few parallels between what the Democratic Party is attempting now and what went on in post-war Europe. It remains to be seen if Democrats will succeed in passing controls that would attempt to strip the people of what is left of this Republic of their arms and achieve their goal of implementing a police state.

This is not only unconstitutional on its face, but this what is known as a coordinated /colluded cheat to defraud the Republican candidates of a fair election, and what is so terrible here is that this happened in so many states, which disenfranchised the largest number of voters in the history of the United States.

State Board of Elections Director Karen Brinson Bell is a fine Democratic Socialist soldier.

The issue, regarding the SRO debacle, was brought to light during this meeting in question; however one issue has nothing to do with the other and never has; it is a pure conflation.

The SRO issue is one that is solely between the School Board and Sheriff; however, the additional unbudgeted funding (not SRO related) from the commissioners, requested by the sheriff after the budget process was completed, has been conflated by the sheriff with this separate SRO issue, which now appears was meant to confuse the public, and direct some measure of consternation against the party (the commissioners) not bending to the sheriff's will.

That is the way I see it.

From my understanding if you ever test positive and die you are added to the Covid death list. Anyone presumed to have covid which could be the flu, allergies, etc and you die you are a covid death.

I find it amazing that deaths from cancer, heart attacks, auto accidents, gun shots, strokes, flu have all reduced. Seems that covid has cured a lot of things.

Don't get me wrong this virus is real, but the extent of the spread from questionable test and the so called number of deaths is all about controlling the people through fear.
Do your research, the nasal swab (PCR) they use is amplified to pick up even dead cells. Seems about Jan 20, 2021 the govt and Who recommended cutting back on the number of cycles and admitted that the higher cycles was giving a lot of false positives.

I have not trusted much of what the govt has said about this since Fauci announced that mask would protect medical workers but not the general public. How the heck does a mask tell the difference? Then all of a sudden mask gained some magical powers to protect everyone. Sounded like a load of manure when he said it and it still sounds like a load of manure.

Trust the government? Remember what happened to the Native American Indians when they trusted the government.

It is simply that every "Covid death" brings a bounty of about 35,000.00 from the Feds. in the Democratic Socialist Congresses zeal to spend it all, all monies could have, don't have and will never have at this point..

Excuse me, but there has been too much fudging on what are called "Covid deaths". The guy in Florida killed in a motorcycle accident counted as a Covid death or the guy who fell off a ladder, or the multiple gunshot deaths in Colorado counted as Covid show how corrupt the counting system is. Heck, it looks like not only is Covid armed but it seems to be a pretty good shot. Who knew?

Another big piece of local news reporting 6 new deaths from the Beaufort County Health Department regarding Covid. These deaths are reported as previously unknown to local authorities.

The new Death Rate has taken a huge jump to 2.01%.

This press release suggests that the Sheriff and Commissioner Hood Richardson have such a personal political squabble, which is so large, it is now effecting staffing within his department.

The problem seems to be quite a bit broader than just that one interpersonal political relationship between the high sheriff and the venerable county commissioner.

The MSM is playing their usual coverup game to control the narrative on this terror incident for their own political purposes. First it was withholding the identity of the shooter for a grossly unreasonable period of time to let gun control and white supremacy memes flourish. Now they are withholding the contents of the shooters social media posts. Those are being reported on talk radio, but they are hard to find in the MSM. It turns out that the shooter posted about his allegiance to ISIS, his hatred of Trump, his hatred of white people who he considered anti-Islam, lots of Muslim religious fervor, and his desire to kill people. All of his victims were white. What does that tell you about his motives? America needs immigration control, not gun control, but the Democrats want to let lots of others like this despicable terrorist shooter into our country with no real vetting.
Commented: Thursday, March 25th, 2021 @ 1:33 pm By: John Steed
Obama brought in lots of Arabs from Syria. Trump put a stop to it. Now Biden is bringing them in again. When Muslim terrorist groups have boasted about using the refugee stream to send terrorists into the west, this is stupid and it is suicidal. It is also not just those who arrive with terror in mind, but the fact that experience has shown that the first generation growing up in the west is even more prone to jihad than their parents. NC Dems are also at fault. Roy Cooper has asked the federal government to send refugees including Muslims from terror prone countries to North Carolina.

Since North Carolina's Democratic Socialist governor is flying flags, half-staffed, for folks murdered in other states, I certainly thankful the Democratic Socialist has dropped the incorrect "Racist" conjecture, as he mistakenly did in this last post -

Maybe this will be a new trend for the governor.
