Update: Pepto-Bismol (Maybe Not)

Pepto Bismol Chews, Upset Stomach Relief, Bismuth Subsalicylate,  Multi-Symptom Relief of Gas, Nausea, Heartburn, Indigestion, Upset Stomach,  Diarrhea ...

I consulted a medical doctor, Dr. Heidi Klessig (also one of our blog community), as to whether Pepto-Bismol might be a cure for COVID. She examined the material from clinicaltrials.gov and reported:

Pepto-Bismol “might be helpful for intestinal symptoms of C-19… I didn’t see that they actually completed the study… I doubt it would have any effect on respiratory symptoms.”

Oh, well. The headline raised false hopes. Headlines do that sometimes.

Does Pepto-Bismol Kill COVID???

I don’t have the science background to evaluate this report, but some of you do [paging Heidi!].

Does ordinary Pepto-Bismol, like you can find on the shelves or your local supermarket or drug store, cure COVID? A 2021 study seems to suggest that it does (https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04811339).

A few of you out there are medical professionals. What do you think of this?

Of course I want it to be true! It’d make Fumblin’ Fauci look a right jackass, wouldn’t it? And maybe it could save a couple million lives. Maybe even expose some arch-villains who need to be exposed… and punished.

But I’m not qualified to voice an opinion on the merits of this study.

 

‘”Science” and “Diversity”–Oh, Boy!’

See the source image

Happy little robots all!

By cracky, they’ll preach “diversity” at you till the cows come home; but heaven forbid they ever practice it.

‘Science’ and ‘Diversity’–Oh, Boy!

I mean, their motto ought to be “To think is to group-think.” You’ll find more individuality in an ant-hill. And they’re supposed to be “science” willies. I don’t know what they mean by “science.” Maybe it’s “whatever everybody thinks” at the moment.

Just try to inject some “diversity” into any academic milieu and see what happens. Be prepared to duck.

‘How Climate Alarmists Lie and Cheat’ (2019)

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – Facts - NobelPrize.org

They will not stop until they’ve taken everything you have.

Now that it’s absolutely A-OK to lie and cheat for what you want, especially at other people’s expense, Climbit Change has come back in a big, big way.

How Climate Alarmists Lie and Cheat

They want to enslave us. There’s really no other words for it. WEF No. 2 Yuval Whatsisname calls the majority of the human race “useless eaters” who have to be pacified with drugs and video games until The Elite can decide what to do with them.

Once you start tolerating lying and cheating, it springs up everywhere.

Deaths Went Up 40%–How Come?

Ah! “Fact-Checkers” to the rescue! “Fact-Checkers” from Politifact.

The number of deaths “from all causes” went up by a staggering 40% in 2021, as claimed at first by a major life insurance company (https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2022/feb/11/blog-posting/no-covid-19-vaccines-arent-responsible-increase-de/).

Mind you, they’re not denying that deaths went up by 40%. Don’t ask me why they aren’t fighting over that. Their beef is with “vaccine skeptics on blogs” blaming the experimental COVID-19 shots, billed to us as “vaccines.”

[Trumpet fanfare] “Our ruling,” says Politifact–take themselves very seriously, don’t they?–is that there’s “no evidence” the so-called vaccines did anybody any harm at all, and probbly COVID itself is responsible for 40% more deaths. Gotta be! Can’t let them vaccine skeptics be right, can we?

Do we trust Politifact? Do we trust ANY of these people?

See, guys, here are some facts we just can’t dismiss.

*There is an active, ongoing effort to set up a global government.

*The persons behind that effort mean to reward themselves with wealth and power beyond anything  yet seen in history so far. They mean to do so at our expense.

*Their political mouthpieces–Gore, Kerry, Obama, et al–are Far Left loons, one and all: for all practical purposes, communists. C’mon–would you buy a used car from these characters?

*Then there’s Dr. Fauci and the other crooks in Washington.

So no, no, no–we do not trust you, never will. If you guys ever told the truth about anything, you’d spontaneously combust.

Wow! Free Money Made Them Happy!

So you’re, like, poor…and someone comes along and gives you $10,000 which you won’t have to pay back. Does that make you… happy?

Well–yeah! You bet! According to a $2 million study by a research team at the University of British Columbia (https://phys.org/news/2022-11-cash-rich-poor-happiness.html).

Of course nobody came back after the money was all spent and asked, “Now how happy are you?” Was the money spent wisely, to lasting good effect? Or was it frittered away on lottery tickets and beer parties? Anyway, the study says “transferring money from rich people to poor people can increase the level of happiness reported by the poor people who receive the money.”

You don’t say! Well blow me down!

Ooh-ooh! Is that a government policy I hear, trickling down from the mountaintop? What if we just kept on giving free money to the poor? Wouldn’t they be happy all the time? And God forbid that such a government should ever fail to be re-elected! That’d be hell to pay.

Two million bucks they pay to find out people like it when you give them free money.

Let’s build more universities!

 

‘How Should a Christian View Organ Transplants?’

What's Wrong with Loving what God Hates? Ep. 179

Dr. Heidi Klessig is part of our blog fellowship, a regular visitor here. She was also invited a few days ago to be Andrea Schwartz’s guest on “Out of the Question.”

https://chalcedon.edu/resources/audio/how-should-a-christian-view-organ-transplants-ep-210-guest-heidi-klessig-m-d

Organ transplants is a thorny subject. I keep thinking of a line in The Princess Bride, spoken by Miracle Max: “Mostly dead is a little bit alive.” And that takes us straight to the heart of the ethical dilemma.

Who could be more helpless, more defenseless, than a hospital patient whom the doctors have given up for lost? And we do know what God thinks of taking advantage of the helpless, don’t we?

There’s a lot of food for thought here, and none of it’s easy.

My Newswithviews Column, Nov. 3 (‘You Have a Right to Be Wrong’)

Now they’ve got him on a postage stamp–for saving women’s lives. But back then… they beat him to death for bucking the establishment.

Establishments don’t like to be shown up for less than omniscient, and they get really, really mad at anyone who dares to do it.

You Have a Right to Be Wrong

Our political establishment has joined with our “scientific” establishment in a secularist jihad to wipe out “misinformation.” Question: What do you get when you mix science and politics? Answer: More damned politics!

Our only hope, short of God’s personal intervention, is a total wipeout of Democrats in next week’s elections.

Coodies Over the Computer

You may think the Great COVID Pandemic is over, but ha-hah! on you.

If you’re going to take an online course with Heap Big Medicine Hospital, you will have to be fully masked with at least two face masks before you can log in. Dr. Camillo Corbaccio explains:

“This here it is to stop COVID coodies from spreading all over through the Internet. Your online course is in your online classroom, wherever that happens to be–and you has got to wear a mask when you’re in a classroom!”

Actual diseases spread via the Internet “the same way misinformation does,” cackled the doctor. “If you’re gonna be online, mask up! And don’t think we can’t tell, if you don’t. Ever hear of Zoomies?”

Researchers at Heap Big Medicine, he added, are still working on making it impossible to relay misinformation. “Just killing everyone is kind off the table,” Dr. Corbaccio admits. “But we can’t just allow people to think wrong thoughts.

“You have no right,” he added, “to be wrong!”

They Want to Make Monkey Pox More Lethal

“Science” at work!

The Daily Mail has broken a story about a government lab in Maryland where, uh, “scientists” have been working to make monkey pox more lethal (https://legalinsurrection.com/2022/10/franken-pox-government-lab-in-maryland-plans-on-blending-monkeypox-strains-together/): “the goal is to swap genes” to turn monkey pox into a killer.

We all saw how disappointed Democrats were in monkey pox as the successor to COVID-19, that would let them lock us all down again and force another vote-by-mail election. So it’s back to the ol’ drawing board to see if they can turn monkey pox into a killer–a disease no one even heard of until “scientists” started their quest for the next pandemic.

You’d think it’d be illegal to do that kind of research here; but the “scientists” have found several loopholes that have saved them a trip to China.

Think SloJo’s regime will put a stop to this?
