This. Is. Rich: WHO Director Warns World Leaders Not to ‘Politicize’ Wuhan Virus

Birds of a feather…

After China lied about the Wuhan virus and WHO lied to protect them, this guy has some nerve making this statement.

As reported by Time yesterday:

World leaders must not politicize the coronavirus pandemic but unite to fight it, the head of the World Health Organization warned Monday, reminding all that the pandemic is still accelerating and producing record daily increases in infections.

The comments by Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who has faced criticism from U.S. President Donald Trump, came as the number of reported infections soared in Brazil, Iraq, India and southern and western U.S. states, straining local hospitals.

Tedros never mentioned Trump’s name or the fact that he is determined to pull the United States out of the U.N. health agency but warned against “politicizing” the pandemic.

“The greatest threat we face now is not the virus itself, it’s the lack of global solidarity and global leadership,” he said. “We cannot defeat this pandemic with a divided world.”

Read the whole story here.

I got two words for Tedros: The first word starts with “f” and the second with “y.”

Sunday Devotional: ‘whoever eats this bread will live forever’

John 6:51-58

Jesus said to the Jewish crowds:
“I am the living bread that came down from heaven;
whoever eats this bread will live forever;
and the bread that I will give
is my flesh for the life of the world.”

The Jews quarreled among themselves, saying,
“How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”
Jesus said to them,
“Amen, amen, I say to you,
unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood,
you do not have life within you.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood
has eternal life,
and I will raise him on the last day.
For my flesh is true food,
and my blood is true drink.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood
remains in me and I in him.
Just as the living Father sent me
and I have life because of the Father,
so also the one who feeds on me
will have life because of me.
This is the bread that came down from heaven.
Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died,
whoever eats this bread will live forever.”

Today is the Feast of Corpus Christi, when we remember and celebrate the new Covenant that our Lord made with His Body and Blood, with all who believe in Him.

1 Corinthians 11:23-25

[T]he Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over,
took bread, and, after he had given thanks,
broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you.
Do this in remembrance of me.”
In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying,
“This cup is the new covenant in my blood.
Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

Three Sundays ago, the universal Church remembered our Lord Jesus Christ’s Ascension, when He left this mortal world, not to return until the End Days. In leaving, our Lord bade a last farewell to His faithful disciples and, knowing full well how bereft they would be, He made sure we are not abandoned — that although “the world will not see me anymore . . . I will not leave you as orphans” (John 14:19, 18).

Jesus made two promises to ensure we would not be left “as orphans”:

(1) The Father will send the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Triune Godhead:

“And I will ask the Father,
and He will give you another advocate
to help you and be with you forever —
the Spirit of truth.
The world cannot accept Him,
because it neither sees Him nor knows Him.
But you know Him,
for He lives with you
and will be in you.” (John 14:16-17)

(2) We will have His Body and Blood:

“I will not leave you as orphans;
I will come to you.” (John 14:18)

How thoughtful and loving our Lord is!

Our Lord said: “This is my body that is for you.”

Do we doubt His words?

Have you heard of the Lanciano Eucharistic miracle?

18 years ago, knowing that her degenerative spine disease and severe osteoarthritis may someday lead to paralysis, I took FOTM‘s Joan on a pilgrimage to Italy.

Among the places we visited were the Sanctuary of St. Michael the Archangel in Mount Gargano and the Church of San Francesco in Lanciano. In the latter was a glass case containing a brownish substance.

Church of San Francesco, Lanciano, aka Shrine of the Eucharistic Miracle

As described by TheRealPresence.org, during the middle of the eighth century, a Basilian monk doubted the Real Presence in the Eucharist — that at consecration, bread and wine become Christ’s true body and true blood.

The doubting monk was celebrating Mass one day. As he intoned the words of consecration, “suddenly the monk saw bread turn into Flesh and the wine into Blood,” according to documents at the Sanctuary of the Eucharistic Miracle in Lanciano, Italy.

Today, more than 12 centuries after the Lanciano miracle, the transformed host and wine are preserved still, despite being exposed to atmospheric and biological agents:

  • The Host-Flesh is light brown and appears rose-colored when lit from the back.
  • The Blood is coagulated into five globules, irregular and differing in shape and size, of an earthy color resembling the yellow of ochre.

Scientific investigations of Lanciano were conducted since 1575, most notably in 1970-’71 and taken up again partly in 1981, by Dr. Odoardo Linoli, head of the clinical analysis laboratory and of pathological anatomy at Arezzo Hospital, and Dr. Ruggero Bertelli, professor of anatomy at the University of Siena.

Linoli and Bertelli came to the following conclusions:

  • The flesh is real human flesh, the blood is real human blood.
  • The flesh is heart tissue — of the myocardium, the endocardium, the vagus nerve and the left cardiac ventricle.
  • The flesh and blood have the blood-type AB, which is the same blood-type found on the Shroud of Turin and the Sudarium or Oviedo Cloth — the piece of cloth that is believed to have covered Jesus’ head after the crucifixion.
  • In the blood were found proteins in the same normal proportions (percentage-wise) as are found in the sero-proteic make-up of fresh human blood, as well as the minerals chloride, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium.

According to “The True Presence,” in 1973, the UN World Health Organization’s board of governors appointed a scientific commission to investigate Lanciano. After 500 examinations, the scientists verified the 1971 findings and declared the tissue to be human.

There have been other Eucharistic miracles elsewhere since Lanciano. See here, here, and especially the website “The Eucharistic Miracles of the World” that was the work of a devout Italian boy named Carlo Acutis before he died from a brain tumor in 2006 at the tender age of 15.

To conclude, Christ is with us through His Body and Blood and in the Holy Spirit, which makes it all the more terrible and reprehensible that state governments, ostensibly to “contain” the COVID-19 “pandemic,” have barred Catholics and other Christians from attending church service, including the receiving of the Holy Eucharist, which is life itself.

Tell our Lord your troubles and fears.

And tell Him, often and always, that you love Him with your whole heart, your whole soul, your whole mind, and with all your strength.

Jesus, I love You. ❤️

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Can Chiraq Mayor Lightfoot explain this double standard?

Don’t hold your breath. This is the same womyn who violated her own social distancing rules to get HER hair cut because “she’s in the public eye.”

Please explain why this is OK?

Yet churches still face restrictions?

Good luck getting any one to comply with any future “stay-at-home” orders. The politicians and medical “experts” have erased ALL credibility (what they had left) by endorsing their preferred-politically-motivated protests during a pandemic.

Divorce, another casualty of COVID-19 lockdowns

We joke about it, but many couples forced together 24/7 in lockdown are getting divorced.

Flic Everett reports for The Telegraph, June 3, 2020, that after long months of enforced, 24/7 proximity, while some marriages  are emerging closer than ever, a sizable number of couples are heading straight for divorce.

Post-lockdown divorce rates have soared around the world:

  • A legal practice in Western China saw 300 couples demanding a divorce over just three weeks.
  • In Italy, divorce enquiries increased by 30 per cent.
  • Although Britain’s divorce rate was falling faster than anywhere else in Europe back in January, Covid-19 has seen a dramatic turnaround in demand. Between March 23, the day lockdown was announced, and mid-May, Co-op Legal Services saw an increase in divorce enquiries of 42 per cent from last year, and online searches for “I want a divorce” are up 154 per cent.

Beleaguered spouses, it seems, have had enough.

Among them is cosmetic doctor, Nadiya Abbas, 39. She says: “Culturally, divorce isn’t great for me, and my family are really upset by the idea, but my husband has always had a temper and living in lockdown with him has been a huge struggle. I wanted a divorce a couple of years ago, but he persuaded me to try again. [But] life’s too short to feel I’m constantly walking on eggshells. He’s not physically violent, but he yells, slams doors and sulks, and I’ve been tense for months. I can’t live like this anymore, and I don’t want the kids to either. I’m able to support myself. I’ve already spoken to a solicitor, and I’m going to divorce him on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour. I’m glad lockdown has finally pushed me into a decision.”

Abbas is not the only one – many who have been dithering over divorce for years are finally committing, having been forced to confront ongoing issues.

Normally, it only takes a fortnight of enforced proximity for divorce requests to spike. Toby Atkinson, a divorce and family attorney at UK leading law firm Stewarts said: “Our peak times are usually after Christmas and the school summer holidays. [But] the additional emotional and financial pressures that lockdown has placed on many families are, frankly, enough to test the strongest of marriages. [We are now] anticipating a rush of new enquiries.”

Children are also casualties of the lockdown. “We cannot underestimate the impact on children of parents struggling to resolve their conflict,” says family attorney and child protection specialist, Kate Young (safeguardingassociation.com). “Research tells us that children who are subject to parents’ unresolved conflict are more likely to struggle academically, have trouble with their own social relationships and can suffer psychologically.”

Stuck with their spouses 24/7 inside their homes, some couples discovered they now have little in common or that those little foibles they previously could live with are just no longer bearable.

 “I’ve been married to James for eight years, and we’ve always been very different,” says Lauren Weaver, 43. “That’s become more obvious since we had our [five year-old] twins, Max and Alice. He’s a strict parent and I’m much more liberal. He’s also from a far posher background than me – boarding school and the military. He’s normally away a lot with work, but three months of being with him non-stop has made me realise how little we have in common. I am definitely going to get some financial advice on where a split would leave us. After the last few months, it’s over for me.”

Therapist Esther Perel, author of Mating in Captivity and host of popular podcast Couples Under Lockdown, told The New Yorker, “If we want to look at the challenges of communication, of sexuality, of desire, of conflict in relationships, this is such a Petri-dish moment. In times of distress, our priorities get re-organised, and the superfluous often gets thrown overboard. And disasters function as accelerators as well, so people are making big decisions.”

Katie Spooner, partner and Head of the Family Law team at Winckworth Sherwood agrees that lockdown has proved a tough testing-ground for togetherness: “When you add into the mix the uncertain economic climate and increased health concerns resulting from the pandemic, it’s understandable that peoples’ relationships are being strained.”

Worse still, those desperate for a speedy split may now find that the financial impact of lockdown has muddied the waters further.

“We were divorcing when lockdown happened,” says Alexandra Naylor, 53. “I can’t wait to restart proceedings, but the problem now is, we’ve now lost savings and income, and the whole settlement will need to be renegotiated, at even more expense.”

Making matters even worse, Spooner points out that the economic havoc and destruction of lockdown may make it “very difficult to accurately value assets such as housing or businesses.”

It was all for nothing: No evidence COVID-19 lockdown actually works

Below are excerpts from Sherelle Jacobs, “The lack of evidence lockdowns actually worked is a world scandal,” The Telegraph, May 28, 2020. I supplied the bold and color emphasis:

We have detonated the global economy to pursue a lockdown experiment that may not have worked, according to the latest evidence. This diabolical revelation should be a world scandal….

The broadcast media is more interested in scalping lockdown flouters than questioning whether shutdowns have served any useful purpose. World-class studies that suggest lockdown did not alter the pandemic’s course are mysteriously vanishing into internet obscurity on first contact with the official narrative. Our greatest minds have resorted to unpicking the issue on offbeat YouTube webinars. No global NGO or lockdown country has launched an investigation into their impact.

This is a scandal so overwhelming that there is only one good place to start: the evidence as it stands…. [I]n Britain, infections may have peaked a week before lockdown, according to Prof Carl Heneghan of Oxford University, with daily deaths in hospitals plateauing a fortnight after it was introduced. We are not an anomaly: peak dates across Europe also seem to confound the official theory.

Don’t just take my word for it. A University of the East Anglia study posits that Europe’s “stay-at-home policies” were not effective. A JP Morgan investigation suggests the virus “likely has its own dynamics” which are “unrelated to often inconsistent lockdown measures”. But such insights have failed to induce even the vaguest quiver of serious mainstream debate.

Nobel prize-winning bio-physicist Michael Levitt has fared little better, despite his valiant one-man effort to expose the inconvenient truth about Covid numbers. He has claimed, sensationally, that the modelling that justified lockdown made the fatally incorrect assumption that Covid-19’s spread is continuously exponential. In fact, his research has found an uncanny pattern across numerous countries whereby the virus grows exponentially for two weeks, before slowing seemingly irrespective of lockdown and social distancing measures.

In a more sensible world, such findings might stir thoughtful debate about whether Covid was burning out naturally before lockdowns began. It might also prompt a global effort to put other pieces of the puzzle together – for example, establishing whether there is a correlation between countries with high death rates and countries that failed to protect care homes. (They make up half of fatalities in Belgium, which has suffered the worst Covid death toll per capita).

But as the holes in Project Lockdown multiply, its advocates flap incoherently to keep their theory afloat…where the goal of lockdown lurches from “flattening the curve” to staving off a “second wave” – to, apparently, averting the first wave’s “second peak”….

Virtue signaling queen: Libtard Chrissy Teigen pledges $100k to bail out rioters

Many businesses in Minneapolis were already facing hardships due to the Wuhan virus shut down. After the protestors, rioters and looters had their fun, many are going to be permanently shut down due to the fires and destruction in that city.

So if you are a TDS-infected libtard, what’s the best way you can help? Bail out the rioters.

But that’s liberal logic for ‘ya. It’s not designed to make sense.
