Five items on Covid, Trump’s options and general societal decay: Links 1, November 21, 2020

1. HCQ helps contain Covid 19 cases

(Although this is from July 2020, it adds fuel to the theory that forbidding HCQ was to keep the fear and power grab going and not about public health)

The latest positive results come from Vadodara, India, where city officials have conducted a major study involving more than 300,000 people, including “health workers and other frontline staff.”

The Indian Express reports:

The administration has analysed a sample of over 1 lakh [lakh = 100,000] residents, who were mostly close contacts of positive persons and the effect of HCQ in containing the transmission of the virus. According to the analysis, of the 48,873 close contacts of positive patients who took one dose of HCQ, 102 turned Covid-19 positive and 12 succumbed to the infection whereas 48 of the 17,776 close contacts of positive patients who took two doses of HCQ turned positive and only one died. The study also states that of the 33,563 close contacts of patients who took three HCQ doses, 43 tested positive and one died.

Local health official Dr. Devesh Patel told the paper, “It has shown positive results. We have the numbers and not one person has complained of complications. The only side effect reported is mild gastritis, which is common with administering heavy medicines and can be effectively handled.”

In other words, anyone who has taken the much more common azithromycin antibiotic for a simple sinus infection has probably suffered about the same distress — all gastric — as a subject of the Vadodara study.

3. Trump at the Rubicon

In the closing days of 50 BC, the Roman Senate declared that Julius Caesar’s term as a provincial governor was finished. Roman law afforded its magistrates immunity to prosecution, but this immunity would end with Caesar’s term. As the leader of the populares faction, Caesar had many enemies among the elite optimates, and as soon as he left office, these enemies planned to bury him in litigation. Caesar knew he would lose everything: property, liberty, even his life.

Caesar decided it was better to fight for victory than accept certain defeat. In January 49 BC, he crossed the Rubicon River with his army, in violation of sacred Roman law, and begin a civil war. “Alea iacta est,” said Caesar: The die is cast.

In the closing days of 2020 AD, the American media has declared that Donald Trump’s term as president is finished. As the leader of the deplorables faction, Trump has many enemies among the elite irates, and as soon as he leaves office, these enemies plan to bury him in litigation. Bill Pascrell, the Chairman of the House Ways & Means Subcommittee on Oversight, has officially called for the prosecution of President Trump for “government crimes” following his term in office. In his thirst for vengeance, Pascrell has made it clear there will be no Nixonian escape by pardon:

  1. #4: Such attacks happen all the time in Europe. Random example:

    The stabbers are mostly homeless / junkies, most of whom have massive mental issues. The drug use is often self-mediation, but makes things worse of course. They snap when under stress and get very aggressive. Or they go psychotic and attack somebody because in their delusion, that person is a threat.
    I know several people who were attacked, and had some negative experiences myself. Tbh, many of such people come from a certain demographic of peace.

  2. Item 5: Is it true? It’s research from China.
    How would this research study benefit China? In more ways than one.
    Regardless, we have to live with it. It’s here to stay, it’s not that bad, and we must learn to coexist with it.

  3. 3/ Myth about Caesar, the Rubicon, and the phrase.

    Caesar couldn’t be taken out for crossing boundaries because he was wildly popular. The people were thrilled that he had defied arbitrary strictures of the Deep State corruptocrats. By that time, the Late Roman Republic had so degenerated, Caesar as Dictator was welcomed as quasi-divine savior.

    The rotten RATS in the Senate lured him into the Curia, a place considered sacrosanct. They had to ambush him: such was his stature that no one had the courage to do it alone. He was stabbed by 23 “colleagues” – an incestuous pack of oligarchs who knew each other too well.
