  1. The concern is not political but the tremendous confusion that occurred in the early stages of the covid pandemic. If the World Health Organization had been more cautious and diligent about acquiring and verifying data from the Wuhan outbreak, the world might have had a better chance for containment. I was hoping Newsweek would be considered an acceptable reporting source.
  2. Yes. Every death is a tragedy. But who would want to live forever in a fallen world? Don't you believe in the Plan of Redemption? We are supposed to have a limited life span. Those of the aged group tend to pass away with several comorbidity factors. It is ridiculous for you to say anyone would diminish a tragedy. It is a fact of life. The way of the world. Oh really? Please explain why the curve is flattening. What about statements by some that covid is continually mutating? If there are antibodies, then it is proof positive that the immune system is working. Which would indicate that herd immunity can and does increase in the population. For a medical professional to say herd immunity is "a joke" is surprisingly unscientific. If you had read the article you would know that several trials are still ongoing in England. Unfortunately the US trials were stopped from being completed. I recall from other reports that there are many trials around the world that are in process. How sad the scientific inquiry is being brutally censored in a number of places.
  3. Here are more insights on how HCQ is effective in early stages of covid infections. Why there was confusion on Lancet Journal trials.
  4. Is it our understanding that Shakespeare was on the committee that put together the KJV Bible? This language was the high quality King's English that was not normally spoken by the public at large. The publication of the KJV raised the level of everyday dialogue and caused greater unity in the English nation.
  5. Perhaps Dr. Fauci’s most deadly mistake is his response to hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) treatments for the disease. Dr. Fauci cheered the use of hydroxychloroquine in treating the MERS coronavirus in 2013 but for some reason resists its use today in treating the China coronavirus. C19Study tracks the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine in treating coronavirus. The countries that pushed HCQ use early have had the most success in treating the disease. The website tracked all of the current international studies on HCQ use in treating the coronavirus. It is clear at this point that the top US medical professionals are KILLING Americans by downplaying the success of HCQ in treating the coronavirus.
  6. Much better alternative - - - http://americanthinker.com/articles/2020/07/hydroxy_hysteria_reaching_a_fever_pitch.html
  7. I agree. The police brutality (I am not sure I would call it ‘terrorist operations’ but I will not argue the point) has not gotten enough air time. You call police standing down and stepping back brutality? What a strange perspective you have! I am sure you knew ACORN holdovers currently manifested as Antifa and extreme marxist members of BLM are the ones conducting terrorist operations.
  8. In actuality, the media has been hyping the protests and glossing over the terrorist operations. It truly is heart-rending that the police have been ordered to stand down or soft peddle the situation.
  9. Your view is sadly distorted. Possibly due to your progressive naivete. I am a regular reviewer of Trump tweets. Some of his tweets may appear to be "bluster" but I only see firmness, NO hate. Whereas the "foaming-in-the-mouth" hatred is happening on the left side.
  10. Read Saul Alinsky's book: "Rules for Radicals". The Left thrives on chaos and division and manipulations.
  11. You are being cute. I am sure you are aware of the 24/7 display of hatred put out by the elite class (that includes the dominant media) for the past 4 years.
  12. There are too many of them. He has to be stepping carefully on eggshells on some issues because of the foaming-in-the-mouth hatred exhibited by the dominant media.
  13. What narrative is directing the CDC? Last I looked, the White House is directing that narrative. Dr. Fauci and Deborah Birx and other members of the "task force" are Deep State operatives. They have been in their offices for decades. Long before the Orange Guy came into the White House. The head of WHO is a dyed in the wool marxist who has soft pedaled the crimes of CCP. There are also many Deep Staters in the CDC. It would be prudent to second guess the players and their track record. You continue to be in denial about the outrageous inconsistencies in policies made throughout the covid hysteria.
  14. Book of Mormon is historical. It is irrational to think otherwise. The Bible is based on actual human experiences and the resultant testimonies of God's dealings with mankind. BoM is the same. Chock full of real people, some who have actually seen the visitation of the Savior in the Western Hemisphere.
  15. The narrative is contrived so the science has been abused. Sadly.
  16. Do you see those destroying statues in former USSR in the same view? Why worry about communist statues in the East Bloc? Worry about the statue of Lenin in Seattle Washington (and elsewhere in the Land of the Free).
  17. Can't help but be cynical. There is a LOT more air moving sideways around the edge than is filtering THRU the masks. I am inclined to agree with commentators that they are mind control devices used for stoking a minimum level of hysteria. One interesting tidbit I learned from an acquaintance who served as an English language instructor in China. The most prevalent reason for the use of the masks is because of the horrific air pollution besetting most Chinese metropolitan areas.
  18. Most likely you are familiar with the F3 (microsoft, don't know the apple version) key which allows you to do multiple finds. I suggest searching on "sancti".
  19. But interested enough to do a "drive by."
  20. That concept has been covered several times throughout this thread. I suggest you do a quick review of the whole thread. Thanks.
  21. I don't think you understand. If police tried to break up the protests and put a cap on the steam - it would have exploded! There would have been 10 times as many small business owners who lost property. There would have been more lives lost. There would have been more violence against police. The police properly mitigated and deescalated the situation by not breaking up the protests. This is a huge cop out. There were genuine protesters at the beginning that were peaceful. This is where the "powers that be" could taken immediate measures to limit the numbers and enforce spacing. But they did not care, they were more eager for the "impactful messages." Then outside subversives came in and started stoking violence and vandalism. These are extremists who make up the "Occupy Wall Street" agitators, ACORN (now renamed to something else), that continue to shift from one "noisy" event to another. The authorities knew that but resisted calling out the national guard. There was NO proper mitigation. There was NO attempt at de-escalation. They cared not a whit about defending innocent small business owners. They were mere cannon fodders to be sacrificed for stoking screaming headlines in the dominant media.
  22. Baptism is a cleansing power and without question a saving ordinance. The Sacrament also has a cleansing power. Partaking of the Sacrament is affirming and remembering the covenants made at baptism. A renewal. Elder Bednar further clarified Elder Hales' statement about taking on the sacred name of Christ. In partaking of the Sacrament we show willingness to take on His Name but it is only actually done when we serve in the temple. You must have missed several posts in this thread that quote several General Authorities who attest to the power of the Atonement that is incrementally applied as a result of partaking of the Sacrament. Thus we are continually refined and sanctified as we endure to the end. This is the reason the Sacrament is a saving ordinance.
