Published

on

So, apparently, new reports are coming out that there’s a case of bubonic plague in China. Because, hey, why not? This year’s already brought coronavirus, murder hornets, UFOs, race riots, and other assorted nuttiness.

Why not throw the Black Death into the mix too?

Local health officials in the area reported on Sunday that a suspected case of the illness was discovered in the city of Bayannur, according to reports coming from Xinhua.

As a result of the discovery, a third-level health warning was issued, this is the second-lowest in a four-level system. People are advised to not hunt or eat potentially infected animals. The warning will be in place for the remainder of the year. Citizens are also encouraged to report sick or dead animals.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

The disease, caused by the Yersinia pestis bacteria, is commonly spread by flea bites and transferred between rodents such as prairie dogs, mice, and chipmunks. Human-to-human transmission is rare but can occur through cough droplets when a person contracts plague pneumonia.

In the 14th century, the bubonic plague, which earned the name “The Black Death,” ravaged Europe, killing approximately 75 million people and affecting half of the continent’s population. The disease earned its name because of black spots that would form on the skin of those infected.

Before the invention of antibiotics, the death rate of the plague was approximately 66%. However, new drugs have reduced the death rate to 11%, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The plague made its way across the ocean to the United States back in the early part of the 20th century. There have been an estimated 1,000 people infected with it between the years of 1900 and 2012. Back in 2017 and 2018 there were six cases of it reported here in our nation.

Curious as to whether or not you might have the plague? Symptoms of the illness include fever, headaches, chills, and swollen lymph nodes.

Can someone please tell me what in the world is up with China? First, the coronavirus. Then there’s the threat of a new swine flu. Now the Black Death? What’s going on over there? Does anybody know?

One thing’s for sure. These folks have got to stop eating dirty, filthy, unclean animals. Please. For the sake of the entire globe.

Save conservative media!

Rashida Tlaib Seals Victory In Michigan Democratic House Primary

Published

on

Well, it’s looking likely everyone’s favorite “Squad” of anti-Semitic starlets in the House will be reunited for another go at Congress as Rep. Rashida Tlaib won the Michigan Democratic House primary race. Tlaib is gunning for a second term representing Michigan’s 13th congressional district. She defeated Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones. Here’s more information via The Washington Examiner: Their election was defined by the issues of race and her resource monopoly compared to Jones. Tlaib’s victory was a surprise given the record number of black Detroit voters who mailed in their ballots to officials ahead of the Aug. 4 primary. Tlaib and Jones first met in the 2018 special election to replace the late Rep. John Conyers. Conyers had resigned over sexual misconduct accusations at the height of the #MeToo movement. Jones won the four-way special election before Tlaib clinched victory by fewer than 1,000 votes five weeks later. The second contest was against a more crowded six-way field for the longer stint in Washington. All four of their former general election rivals backed Jones, a 15-year councilor. Polling was sparse throughout the race, but a Target-Insyght poll late last month had Tlaib in front, 53% to 24% . The Palestinian-American, who along with Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar was one of the first two Muslim women to win seats in Congress, was leading in the cash stakes. She raised $2.9 million, in contrast to Jones’ $140,000 in July. Jones was disadvantaged after contracting COVID-19 as well. If there’s two people this country could stand to see less of, it’s Tlaib and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Unfortunately, despite all of their anti-Semitic remarks poor decision making, they will probably win second terms. Try not to hurt yourself jumping with joy.

Biden Delivers Bizarre Interview; Walks Back Claims On Cognitive Tests, Rambles On About ‘Cocaine’

Published

on

Over the last year or so, there’s been a lot of speculation that Joe Biden’s mental health is in serious decline. He’s lost his train of thought in the middle of a sentence on numerous occasions, needed to have questions repeated, rambled incoherently, forgotten parts of the Declaration of Independence, and much more. Do we really want a guy like that in the White House? Of course not. But the left is moving full steam ahead with him as their candidate anyway. Biden recently gave a very strange interview in which he walked back previous claims of taking cognitive tests and rambled on about cocaine. You just have to to see this for yourself. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “Have you taken a cognitive test?” CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett asked. “No, I haven’t taken a test,” Biden shot back. “Why the hell would I take a test? Come on man, that’s like saying, you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?” “What do you say to President Trump, who brags about his test and makes your mental state an issue for voters?” the host pressed as Biden laughed. “Well, if he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,” Biden responded. “Did you watch that, look, come on man, I, I, I know you’re trying to goad me, but I mean I’m so forward looking to have an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president and debates. There gonna be plenty of time, and by the way, as I joke with’em, you know, I, I shouldn’t say it. I’m going to say something, I…
