SARS-CoV-2 Testing Under Scrutiny Using PCR Methodology

Disclaimer: This article is not considered medical advice. Consult your doctor.

The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test, invented in 1985 by Kary Mullis, is one of the methods being used by laboratories to detect SARS CoV-2 in patients, and can deliver various results depending on their use.

The PCR test duplicates a tiny amount of a patient’s DNA or RNA into large detectable quantities, by running samples through amplification “cycles.” Too few cycles eliminate valid results, and too many cycles increases false positives. (Some tests, like those from Thermo Fisher recommend 25-30 cycles.)

Canadian researcher David Crowe, with a degree in biology and mathematics, explains, “So, if you cut off at 20 [cycles], everybody would be negative. If you cut off a 50, you might have everybody positive… In one paper I found 37 cycles. If you didn’t get enough fluorescence by 37 cycles, you are considered negative. In another, paper, the cutoff was 36. Thirty-seven to 40 were considered ‘indeterminate.'”

Laboratories set their own cycle thresholds. The CDC has suggested that above 33 cycles it is difficult to detect any virus. Also, too high a threshold may detect genetic fragments that pose no risk.

According to Angela Rasmussen, a virologist at Columbia University, “It’s just kind of mind-blowing to me that people are not recording the C.T. [cycle thresholds] values from all these tests — that they’re just returning a positive or a negative.”

A widely circulated article by Torsten Engelbrecht and Konstantin Demeter has cited evidence that PCR tests are scientifically meaningless for SARS CoV-2, which Politifact has debunked, which prompted a follow-up refutal.

TYPES OF SARS-COV-2 TESTS

PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction)
Confirms if you have the remains of a virus in your body. (Not antibodies)

Antibody tests
Determines if you have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the past. (Antibodies start developing within 1 to 3 weeks after infection, but could disappear months later if case was mild.)

Antigen tests
Identifies virus mid-infection as it’s multiplying. The Trump Administration has purchased 150 million from Abbott Labs. (Antigens are proteins on the outside of the virus.)

Architects Dispute Official Cause of World Trade Center Building 7 Collapse

A scientific study by 3,000 architects and engineers, finalized in March, 2020, disagrees with the official reason for the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 (Salomon Building), 19 years ago on Sept. 11, 2001.

In 2008 the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, conluded that debris from the collapse World Trade Center Tower 1 ignited fires on at least 10 floors in WTC7.

Researchers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) with the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth challenged the fire hypothesis with their study and are requesting a correction to the official 2008 NIST report.

“The collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of all columns in the building and not a progressive collapse involving the sequential failure of columns throughout the building.”

UAF report

Some theorize a controlled demolition brought down WTC 7, citing the media reporting on the collapse before it happened, and disputed claims of a radio countdown heard prior to the collapse. The UFA report does not make such claims.

Strengthening the official fire collapse theory is that over 300 firefighters died when the twin towers fell, disrupting the ability to extinguish flames in WTC 7 which had sprinkler system failures. Also, could alleged demolition wiring survive eight hours of fires before alleged conspirators decided to push the detonate button?

Enhanced video and audio of the moment of collapse (below) provides no answers, but does show some areas collapsing before others.

Enormous Pyryocumulonimbus Cloud Captured Over California

As California battles the biggest fire outbreaks in its history a giant pyryocumulonimbus cloud formed last week. This happens when fires become strong enough that their heat mass punches through the atmosphere, spawning fire tornados and lightning that can carry embers for miles.

Although rare, the clouds were witnessed during the Australian fires that began in September, 2019. Both California and Australia are suffering through environmental policies that restricted fire maintenance. To make matters worse California released many of the state prisoners who were trained to help the fire lines.

The image below was taken by Thalia Dockery on Sept. 5 over California’s “Creek Fire” during a flight from San Jose to Las Vegas.

Black Lives Matter Protests Tracked by New Leftist Group

The newly created U.S. Crisis Moniter, involving socialist Princeton University, announced a project to track demonstrations related to the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement since the George Floyd riots.

Their obvious goal is to show how most BLM protests are peaceful, yet the report reveals 570 violent demonstrations in nearly 220 U.S. locations with 30 plus people dead.

The report’s methodology used a thin criteria to determine “riots.” Events where police were forced to use violence against protesters were not considered riots. Still, the largest 100 U.S. cities had 74 riots.

A lack of “riots” during the Seattle CHOP/CHAZ commune is highlighted, despite a neighborhood takeover, fires, shootings, rapes and several people dead.

Interesting data. Consider the source.

War of Words Worsens With China

U.S.-China relations are worsening as Mike Pompeo and others in the Trump Administration have increased calling Xi Jinping “general secretary of the Chinese Communist party (CCP)” instead of President. Analysts claim the change is meant to hurt Xi’s image with his people.

Pompeo tweeted a picture of his dog Mercer playing with a Winnie the Pooh doll in July. China banned Winnie the Pooh movies, merchandise and images after memes of Xi’s alleged likeness to the cartoon character spread on Chinese social media in recent years.

Tensions are increasing with the spread of the Chinese Coronavirus, espionage at American universities, patent theft, belt and road expansion and the CCP’s increased presence in disputed areas of the South China Sea.

Bearcat Bests BLM Marxists in Wisconsin Riots

Riots erupted in Kenosha, Wisconsin after a black man, with a history of violence against cops and domestic abuse, was shot by police as he refused to comply and walked to his car to reach for an unknown object.

Armed Black Lives Matter Marxist rioters cornered Wisconsin sheriffs on Sunday, surrounding their Bearcat armored vehicle. See how it unfolded…

The Lenco Bearcat has models made for law enforcement protection in hazardous situations. It was vital in rescuing victims in the Pulse night club shooting in Orlando, used as a battering ram to rescue trapped survivors.

California Burning: Animated Wildfires from 1910-2019

Esri mapping service recently teamed with California’s fire agencies to create an 3D animated look at California’s wildfires from 1910-2019.

Wildfires in California are currently forcing the evacuation of tens of thousands after more than 12,000 lightning strikes has ignited at least 560 fires in the past week.

NOAA predicts increased near-surface wildfire smoke for next week similar to the projection for August 22, below. Check out Wildfiretoday.com for daily updates.
