    More on SARS-CoV-2 biology.

    Scientists found bat coronaviruses in Laos with ACE2 receptor binding site like SARS-CoV-2. But the furin binding site (R-X-R/K-R) which may make SARS-CoV-2 more deadly was NOT present. Where did it come from? Since many other coronaviruses DO have furin cleavage sites it’s possible that a recombination event occurred in bats, another intermediate host, or even in humans. Or as nuCons “feel”, it was engineered there by Chinese virologists.

    Do you believe the scientists or do you believe this is a scam to take pressure off the Chinese.

      Jeff,
      You are ignorant as hell. You quote one article from a web site and automatically Asume that is the accepted science. Science is the questioning of findings and reproduction by other sources.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Dookie,

        You are as ignorant as hell. Did you read the linked Nature article as well? Didn’t think so.

        There is NO evidence that SARS-CoV-2 was made in a lab, Chinese or otherwise. Next thing you know, you’ll claim that Traitor Don won the 2020 election!

        What baffles me is why the scientists didn’t just fake the sequence of a furin cleavage site. Any good nuCon scientist (oxymoron) would know to do that.

        • Kye says:

          There is plenty of evidence the Chinese Flu came from a lab but Elwood will not accept it. He will ignore it. He will deny it. Just as he does with the stolen election evidence. The only “evidence” Elwood ever accepts on any topic is that with which he agrees. So there is no point in arguing with a person whose mind is so closed and sealed shut he won’t even consider other points of view. Even the common sense question of: There’s a wet market and an virology lab in the same area and a virus breaks out. Which one is the most likely culprit? How about the same two participants and food poisoning breaks out? Would you figure the virology lab did it?

          From MSN News:

          “Biologist Bret Weinstein told Hill.TV that he believes COVID-19 was likely created in a lab and that fellow scientists are telling “fairy tales” about the virus originating in nature.

          Weinstein, a visiting fellow at the James Madison Program at Princeton University, said the evidence “unfortunately points toward the possibility of a laboratory leak, and that hypothesis deserves investigation.”

          “We are still being told fairy tales, including by Dr. [Anthony] Fauci this last week, about other ways in which the virus could have emerged directly from nature,” said Weinstein, a former biology professor at Evergreen State College in Washington.

          His remarks come on the heels of Robert Redfield, former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, telling CNN that he is “of the point of view that…the most likely etiology of this pathogen in Wuhan was from a laboratory.”

          So even amongst “experts” there is a difference of opinion. But Dr. Elwood is absolutely certain a dead bat did it because his handlers tell him so. Bullshit.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Actually Kye, there is no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 was created in a laboratory, only speculation and hope.

            Then you rely on authority from a known dis-informer, Dr Weinstein, rather than to look at actual evidence.

            Abstract

            The animal reservoir of SARS-CoV-2 is unknown despite reports of various SARS-CoV-2-related viruses in Asian Rhinolophus bats, including the closest virus from R. affinis, RaTG13. Several studies have
            suggested the involvement of pangolin coronaviruses in SARS-CoV-2 emergence. SARS-CoV-2 presents a mosaic genome, to which different progenitors contribute. The spike sequence determines the binding affinity and accessibility of its receptor-binding domain (RBD) to the cellular angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor and is responsible for host range. SARS-CoV-2 progenitor bat viruses genetically close to SARS-CoV-2 and able to enter human cells through a human ACE2 pathway have not
            yet been identified, though they would be key in understanding the origin of the epidemics. Here we show that such viruses indeed circulate in cave bats living in the limestone karstic terrain in North Laos, within the Indochinese peninsula. We found that the RBDs of these viruses differ from that of SARS-CoV-2 by only one or two residues, bind as efficiently to the hACE2 protein as the SARS-CoV-2 Wuhan strain isolated in early human cases, and mediate hACE2-dependent entry into human cells, which is inhibited
            by antibodies neutralizing SARS-CoV-2. None of these bat viruses harbors a furin cleavage site in the spike. Our findings therefore indicate that bat-borne SARS-CoV-2-like viruses potentially infectious for humans circulate in Rhinolophus spp in the Indochinese peninsula.

    Jeff,
    Did you actually read and understand the article? It proves nothing, not jack shit. Why is it so important to you to exonerate the Chinese.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Dookie,

      I did read and understand both the Forbes article by Dr. Haseltine and the Nature preprint out of the Pasteur Institute. You didn’t. You’re just ejaculating your typical line of BS.

      I don’t give a shit about the Chinese, but am interested in the truth. What the Institute Pasteur scientists found were bats in caves in Laos with ACE2 receptor binding domains with only 1 or 2 amino acid differences from the SARS-CoV-2 that infects humans. As you know, the Covid-19 virus enters human cells by binding to the ACE2 receptor and after being internalized, it replicates. I did throw you a bone by mentioning the lack of a furin cleavage site in the spike protein in the Laos bat viral sequences. The human version HAS a furin cleavage site. Furin is a protease that cleaves at the peptide sequence R-X-R/K-R (basic amino acids Arg-any-Arg/Lys-Arg). It’s been shown in other viruses that furin cleavage increases the infectivity of the virus.

      The scientists show that there are naturally occurring SARS coronaviruses that are closer to the human virus in genetic sequence than the previously discovered bat SARS coronaviruses.

      It’s speculation, but the addition of the furin cleavage site to SARS-CoV-2 sequence in the human version could be what makes it so infective. Where did the furin cleavage site originate? Recombination with other coronaviruses in bats, another host or even humans? Or inserted by Chinese scientists? All possibilities with different probabilities.

      • david7134 says:

        Jeff,
        Still laughing, you, truth. You wouldn’t know the truth if it hit you in the head. You are a dumbass that runs around acting like you are smart.

    “Actually Kye, there is no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 was created in a laboratory, only speculation and hope.”

    Actually Elwood, there is plenty of evidence that Fauxi Flu originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology and in fact with the monetary help of American taxpayer money. But that does not matter because you discount it without even reading or considering it. And it’s not speculation when that was revealed as early as November of 2019. As I said, where would a viral disease make more sense coming from, a wet market or a place that actually does viral research? Similarly, where would food poisoning tend to come from the institute or the wet market? You are allowed to look through the propaganda and lies and use reason and common sense Elwood.

    “Then you rely on authority from a known dis-informer, Dr Weinstein, rather than to look at actual evidence.”

    Once again you stoop to the level of communist propagandists by attacking Dr. Weinstein rather than sticking to the subject and accuse him of being a “known dis-informer” without evidence of that either. So as usual just double down and ignore the facts. If you just said you disagree with him at least you could have kept your honor (?) but you just couldn’t resist bad-mouthing someone else you hate. Because all you leftists have is hate.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Podcaster Weinstein’s opinion is no more relevant than mine, and certainly less relevant than Dr Haseltine’s, who happens to be a renowned virologist.

      I presented you a scientific paper, explained it, left room for your unsupported hypothesis that Chinese manufactured the human version of the virus, and you accuse me of denying evidence.

      Projection much?

  5. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    from the Springfield MO News-Leader, regarding MO Governor Mike Parsnip (R), a typical nuGOPher threatening the media for Parsnip’s own foul.

    As recently as Tuesday, the Social Security numbers of tens of thousands of Missouri teachers were accessible to anyone with a web browser and an internet connection. Thanks to a St. Louis journalist, they’re better protected today.

    That personal information was available, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, through an online application that allowed the public to search the credentials and certifications of state educators. Social Security numbers were not shown as part of the default display, the paper reported, but were present in the source code, which can be freely viewed by anyone with browser apps like Safari, Firefox and Chrome.

    When a journalist discovered the flaw and confirmed the information with several teachers, the Post-Dispatch alerted the state and waited until the problem was corrected before publishing a story.

    Gov. Mike Parson’s response? Holding a press conference during which he called the Post-Dispatch journalist a “hacker,” threatened him with criminal prosecution and accused the newspaper of trying to “embarrass the state.”

    To be clear, though, this is not harmless buffoonery. In a transparent attempt to avoid accountability, Missouri’s chief executive threatened to deploy the powers of the state to retaliate against a journalist who accessed publicly available information and identified a problem. Such abuse must be condemned, swiftly and in the strongest terms.

    No one expects Parson to thank a newspaper for uncovering a state agency’s failures – failures that, according to his own estimation, could cost $50 million to correct. But it seems he could at least admit the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s website was too light on security and assure the thousands of hard-working teachers that his administration will make things right.

    Rather than threatening to prosecute the people who pointed out the problem, he should be thankful he was alerted by someone who had Missouri teachers’ safety in mind.

    • Kye says:

      I too did a search and found almost all of the top 10, 25 and 50 most dangerous cities in America are rum by demofascists of the Elwood genre and have been for decades! In fact we once again find Elwood the liar cherry picking stats to support his lies. Typical fascist, if the facts don’t fit tell a lie!

      In fact:


      Dan O’Donnell
      The Most Violent Cities in America are All Run by Democrats
      By Dan O’Donnell
      Jul 30, 2019

      Is Baltimore actually a very dangerous and filthy place? In fact, it is one of the most dangerous places in the world. Moreover, Baltimore–like nearly every other extremely dangerous city in America–has been controlled by Democrats for decades.

      In 2018, Baltimore was ranked 23rd in Mexico’s Citizen’s Council for Public Security’s annual list of the 50 most dangerous cities on earth. Its homicide rate of 50.52 per 100,000 residents topped even that of San Salvador, El Salvador, which has a murder rate of 50.32 per 100,000 people. Meanwhile, the most violent city in Honduras, San Pedro Sula, has a homicide rate of 46.67 per 100,000.

      This means that Baltimore is a more dangerous place to live than the two most violent cities in countries whose citizens are literally using out-of-control violence to claim asylum in the United States.

      Baltimore, it should be noted, hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1967 and has been under such unanimous Democratic control that a research librarian at Baltimore’s City Hall contacted by “The Dan O’Donnell Show” couldn’t even find evidence of a single Republican serving on the city council in decades.

      The other three American cities that made the world’s 50 most dangerous list have also been under near-unanimous Democratic control for generations. St. Louis, Missouri, which ranked 16th and had America’s highest murder rate at 60.59 homicides per 100,000 residents, hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1949. Detroit, which ranked 46th with a 38.78 murder rate, hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1962. New Orleans, ranked 50th with a homicide rate of 36.87, hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1872.

      According to 24/7 Wall Street’s analysis of violent crime rates published in USA Today earlier this year, St. Louis, Detroit, and Baltimore are also the three most dangerous cities in America with violent crime rates that each top 2,000 per 100,000 residents. By way of comparison, the national violent crime rate is 382.9 per 100,000 people.

      The only other city in America to top 2,000 violent crimes per 100,000 people, Memphis, Tennessee, has never had a Republican mayor in its history.

      In fact, nine of the ten most violent cities in the country have been dominated by Democrats for decades, including Kansas City, which hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1991, Cleveland, which hasn’t had one since 1991, and Milwaukee, which hasn’t had one since 1908.

      No wonder Democrats are focusing on President Trump’s supposed racism: There is no question he is correct on the substance of his argument. Baltimore is a dangerous place, and so are literally dozens of other cities that Democrats have run for generations.
