  1. Maybe the Covid-19 virus has its own suicidal rightwing nutjobs……….. Bolling
  2. So much rightwingnut insanity and bogus bullshit filling thread after thread……….all of it has been very thoroughly debunked over and over but the RW retards keep on clinging to the Big Lie, and probably will ‘till they die. Meanwhile, in the real world………………….. Fact check: Arizona audit chief baselessly raises suspicion about 74,000 ballots Sun July 18, 2021 Arizona’s Senate held a Thursday briefing on the ongoing Republican-initiated “audit” of the 2020 election in Maricopa County, where Joe Biden outperformed Donald Trump by enough of a margin to win the state. The review is being conducted by Cyber Ninjas, a cybersecurity firm that has no experience in election auditing. And the company’s chief executive officer, Doug Logan, made some Thursday claims that were immediately called into question by the county and independent experts. Here’s a brief look at two of them. The 74,000 ballots Logan said that door-to-door questioning of Maricopa County voters is the “one way” the auditors could determine whether what they are seeing in the elections data are “real problems” or “clerical errors of some sort.” “For example, we have 74,243 mail-in ballots where there is no clear record of them being sent,” he said. Logan made clear that this wasn’t necessarily a case of fraud, saying it could be a “clerical issue.” But his claim about an unexplained 74,000-plus ballot gap between the county’s list of mail-in ballots received and its list of mail-in ballots sent out was amplified on Twitter by Liz Harrington, the spokeswoman for former President Donald Trump, and by numerous other Trump supporters, such as Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert. Some of them, including Boebert, went further than Logan did. “In Arizona, 74,000 ballots were counted with no record of being sent in. That’s not normal. That’s not right. That’s not safe nor is it secure,” Boebert wrote. On Friday, Trump himself went further than Logan. In a written statement, he claimed that the Thursday Senate briefing showed “74,000 mail in ballots received that were never mailed (magically appearing ballots).” Facts First: There is no evidence of either fraud or any significant error with these ballots, and certainly not “magically appearing ballots.” Both Maricopa County and outside experts say there is a simple explanation for the gap Logan claimed had not been explained: the existence of in-person early voting. Contrary to Logan’s claims, the ballot lists he was talking about include not only mail-in ballots but also ballots cast early in person. Here’s why it’s entirely normal for Maricopa County’s submitted-ballots list to include a significant number of votes that do not match up with entries on the requested-ballots list. After the deadline to request a mail-in ballot, which was October 23 in 2020, the requested-ballot list doesn’t get updated by the county. But the submitted-ballots list does get updated after that October 23 deadline – with the votes of in-person early voters. Logan’s suggestion of some sort of unsolved mystery was definitively debunked by Garrett Archer, an election analyst at ABC15 television in Phoenix and a former official in the Arizona secretary of state’s office, who is known locally and on Twitter for his mastery of the state’s elections data. Archer explained that the county stops updating the requested-ballots list, known as “EV32,” after the last day people can request a mail ballot, October 23. So ballots cast in person after October 23, Archer said, were included on the submitted-ballots list, known as “EV33,” but did not have a corresponding item on the “EV32” requested-ballots list. Archer analyzed the files and found that there were 74,241 ballots on the submitted-ballots list without a corresponding entry on the requested-ballots list – nearly identical to the figure Logan cited, “74,243.” But Archer found that more than 99.9% of the ballots in question were recorded in the submitted-ballots list on October 26 or later. That is in line with the October 23 cut-off date Archer had previously noted for the requested-ballots list. The explanation: October 24 and 25 were weekend days when county clerks didn’t update the submitted-ballot list, Archer said, so they added the ballots cast by in-person voters on those weekend days to the submitted-ballot totals starting on October 26. “This is a glaring omission in the analysis,” Archer tweeted of the auditors. “It is either grossly negligent for failing to see a pattern of ballots being returned after a certain date or the statements were deliberately misleading.” Tammy Patrick, an elections expert who spent more than a decade working at Maricopa County’s elections department, also said on Twitter that the requested-ballots list stops getting updated 11 days before Election Day but the submitted-ballots list continues to get updated until the day before Election Day. Patrick tweeted of the auditors: “AGAIN: They don’t know what they’re looking at.” Archer said the two EV files are created for the benefit of the political parties’ campaign efforts and not meant to be comprehensive records of all ballots, so they are not ideal documents for a forensic audit. The county made a similar remark on Twitter, calling them “not the proper files to refer to for a complete accumulating of all early ballots sent and received.” Meanwhile, some citizens interpreted Logan’s remarks as a claim that the total number of mail-in ballots the county recorded as received was higher than the total number the county recorded as having sent out. We don’t think that’s what Logan actually said, but for the record, Maricopa County tweeted on Friday that this was not true, either. Without the access Logan’s team has, we can’t say for certain that there are no errors or issues with the two lists; it’s entirely possible that some issue or another will be uncovered at some point. It’s possible, Archer said, that there were clerical errors with the small number of ballots – 29 – that he found had been recorded on the submitted-ballots list before October 26 but did not have a corresponding entry on the requested-ballots list. But Logan had suggested there was a massive, unsolved data problem. Experts have made clear that he simply did not understand the data. Signature verification Logan also claimed that Maricopa County simply stopped verifying voters’ signatures at some point of the election. “Yeah, we’ve had an affidavit that specifically stated that when mail in ballots were received that so many of them were received that the standards reduced over time,” Logan said. He said the affidavit claimed the verification process started with 20 “points of comparison,” then “after some time” was reduced to just 10 points of comparison, then to five points of comparison, “and then eventually they were just told to let every single mail-in ballot through.” Facts First: The office of Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, a Republican elected in 2020, strongly denied this claim. “At no point during the 2020 election cycle did Maricopa County modify the rigorous signature verification requirements. Any suggestion to the contrary is categorically false,” the recorder’s office said on Twitter. Logan was not clear on who supposedly reduced the comparison standard and how widespread the supposed change was. We can’t, of course, definitively fact check what happened or didn’t happen at each and every elections office in the county, especially without seeing the affidavit Logan referred to.
  3. I did, you braindead twerp. It is there in the Red Cross at the beginning of the quote from their website.
  4. Everybody already know that! Just the MuddledMoron’s usual lies and distortions of reality. He deliberately use a Red Cross handout dated from February when the vaccines were just starting to be distributed. What does the rest of that release say, that the MM posted a fragment of and ignored the rest…….. February 24, 2021 As COVID-19 vaccines are being distributed throughout the U.S., what does this mean for blood donors? Great news: if you receive the vaccine, you can still donate blood, platelets and AB Elite plasma! Donating blood is essential to help save lives and support the efforts of those on the frontlines of the pandemic. The Red Cross is following FDA blood donation eligibility guidance for those who receive the COVID-19 vaccination. Deferral times for donations may vary depending on which brand of vaccine you received. If you’ve received a COVID-19 vaccine, you’ll need to provide the manufacturer name when you come to donate. In most cases, there is no deferral time for individuals who received a COVID-19 vaccine as long as they are symptom-free and feeling well at the time of donation. The following eligibility guidelines apply to each COVID-19 vaccine received, including boosters: There is no deferral time for eligible blood donors who are vaccinated with a non-replicating inactivated or RNA-based COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by AstraZeneca, Janssen/J&J, Moderna, Novavax, or Pfizer. Eligible blood donors who received a live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine or do not know what type of COVID-19 vaccine they received must wait two weeks before giving blood. ****************** That was from February. What does the Red Cross say SINCE THEN about donating “convalescent plasma”. Red Cross — May 27, 2021 Q: Are individuals who received a COVID-19 vaccine eligible to give blood, platelets and plasma? A: In most cases, there is no blood, platelet or plasma donation deferral time after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. However, knowing the name of the vaccine manufacturer is important in determining donation eligibility. If you do not know the name of the vaccine manufacturer, we request you wait two weeks to donate after vaccination, out of precaution. Q: Are individuals who received a COVID-19 vaccine eligible to give COVID-19 convalescent plasma? A: The FDA revised its convalescent plasma donor eligibility guidance on February 11 specifically to ensure that convalescent plasma donors have sufficient levels of antibodies as a result of their illness or immune response to a COVID-19 infection versus just the vaccine. The FDA allows people who have received a COVID-19 vaccine to donate dedicated COVID-19 convalescent plasma within six months of their infection of the virus. The Red Cross discontinued dedicated COVID-19 convalescent plasma donations on March 26 due to declining hospital demand and sufficient industry supply. The Red Cross tests all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. Plasma from routine blood and platelet donations that test positive for high-levels of antibodies, and meets other requirements, may be used as convalescent plasma to meet potential future needs of COVID-19 patients. Q: I’ve heard claims that the Red Cross refuses to accept convalescent plasma from individuals who have received a COVID-19 vaccine because it wipes out the antibodies. Is this true? A: There are claims circulating that incorrectly state that the Red Cross will not accept convalescent plasma donations from those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine because “the vaccine wipes out those antibodies making the convalescent plasma ineffective in treating other COVID-19 patients.” This is not accurate. The FDA allows people who have received a COVID-19 vaccine to donate dedicated COVID-19 convalescent plasma within six months of their infection of the virus, based on data that antibodies from natural infection can decline after six months. The Red Cross discontinued dedicated COVID-19 convalescent plasma donations on March 26 due to declining hospital demand and sufficient industry supply. The Red Cross tests all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. Plasma from routine blood and platelet donations that test positive for high-levels of antibodies, and meets other requirements, may be used as convalescent plasma to meet potential future needs of COVID-19 patients.
  5. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL………hilarious…….the only “revelations” your phony-balony AZ “audit” brought to light is how utterly gullible and stupid tRump’s rightwingnut base actually are.
  6. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ The crazywhore is too stupid to comprehend the fact that distrusting the professional advice of competent Doctors and medical scientists during a deadly global pandemic is provably not just “a bad thing”, but a totally insane thing. Covid-19 = six hundred and eight hundred thousand dead Americans U.S. COVID Deaths Are Rising Again. Experts Call It A 'Pandemic Of The Unvaccinated' COVID-19 Deaths Are Rising, And 99% Of Them Are People Who Are Unvaccinated The death rate from COVID-19 in the U.S. is rising steadily for the first time in months as the nation grapples with a renewed burst of cases in what's become "a pandemic of the unvaccinated," the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday. The seven-day average of new cases has increased by nearly 70% to almost 30,000 per day; hospitalizations are up 36%. And deaths from the virus have risen steadily in recent days, reversing a months-long downward trend that began in mid-January. "There is a clear message that is coming through: This is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated," Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the CDC's director, said at a Friday briefing of the White House COVID-19 Response Team. "Our biggest concern is we are going to continue to see preventable cases, hospitalizations and sadly deaths among the unvaccinated." The upward trend in national statistics is being driven almost entirely by outbreaks in places with low vaccination rates, such as the Ozarks, Florida and parts of the Mountain West. Some counties, especially in Missouri and Arkansas, are recording more cases now than they did during the winter. "Unvaccinated Americans account for virtually all recent COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths," said Jeff Zients, the White House COVID-19 response coordinator. "Each COVID-19 death is tragic, and those happening now are even more tragic because they are preventable."
  7. How do you imagine that you would be able to recognize anyone’s superior intelligence when you are dumber than a retarded clam, FuckHeadFred? You don’t even have the mental capacity to recognize that you are an imbecile.
  8. All of the doctors and medical scientists, you sorry-ass smuck. You and your questions are both confused and stupid, FuckHeadFred. And you lie! Immune Response From mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines Is More Robust Than Natural Infection The antibody response induced by mRNA vaccination against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is stronger and more variable than that of natural infection, a new study found. “MRNA vaccine induced antibody levels are spectacular and appear rapidly within a few days after vaccination,” corresponding author Philip Felgner, PhD, professor in residence and director of the Vaccine R&D Center at the University of California, Irvine told Contagion. “Ab (antibody) levels induced by the vaccine are much higher than levels induced by natural exposure and infection,” Felgner said. “The vaccine also induces cross reactive Abs against other novel CoV strains that are not induced by natural exposure and infection. This offers hope that the vaccine will be effective against emerging virus variants that are circulating around the world.”
  9. You never post anything that isn’t a delusion….or a braindead outright lie, Str8Jacket. You are a TROLL!!! In the real world……. Poll: Most Americans reject validity of 2020 election audits Most of the public rejects Republican efforts to audit states' 2020 election results, saying they believe the reviews are an attempt to undermine valid election outcomes, according to a Monmouth University poll released Monday. A 57% majority of Americans say that, based on what they've heard about the audits conducted or proposed by legislatures in some states, they view them as "partisan efforts to undermine valid election results." Just a third say they see them more as "legitimate efforts to identify potential voting irregularities."
  10. That’s pretty much what everybody sorta figured when you started posting here, JinnedUpMoron.
  11. Shame on you for being so sane and logical………don’t you know how much that upsets the rightwing retards?
  12. More clear evidence of your utter stupidity! The answer to your clueless question about pushing vaccine disinformation is: All of the sane people in this country whose IQ is higher than normal room temperature. That eliminates you on both counts, FuckHeadFred.
  13. Nope!!! Vaccine lies that are causing preventable deaths are definitely NOT “protected speech”, you poor demented retard. As the liars at FauxNews and other far right wing sources of lies and misinformation will be finding out to their dismay before too long. Too bad you are so obviously too stupid to understand this. Nearly all US COVID-19 deaths now preventable | CIDRAP Jun 25, 2021 — Nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now are in people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been and an indication that deaths per day — now down to under 300 — could be practically zero if everyone eligible got the vaccine.
  14. Why are your posts consistently so stupidly insane, FartRipper? The flooding in Germany is being caused by extremely high amounts of rainfall, which is happening because of human caused global warming. Hotter air carries more moisture. “Volcanoes” have nothing to do with that, moron. Neither do “the fault lines”. Retards like you should just keep your heads safely tucked up your asses and never try to post the bullshit bubbling there.
