# Covid / Pandemics / Biologicals
Bill Gates warns a more transmissive and fatal Covid variant ‘could be generated’ –Eugenics enthusiast says there is “way above five percent”
risk of pandemic generating more transmissive and “even more fatal”
Italian Court Rules Mandatory Vaccination Unconstitutional, ‘Fatal Side Effects’ too Risky. “Who would determine the percentage of disposable citizens? It is indisputable. Otherwise, it results in Nazism.”

Yet again, the U.S. is trudging into what could be another COVID-19 surge, with cases rising nationally and in most states after a two-month decline.

# General Information / Other News
The Illusion of Freedom: We’re Only as Free as the Government Allows:
“Rights aren’t rights if someone can take them away. They’re privileges.
That’s all we’ve ever had in this country, is a bill of temporary privileges. And if you read the news even badly, you know that every year the list gets shorter and shorter. Sooner or later, the people in this country are gonna realize the government doesn’t care about you, or your children, or your rights, or your welfare or your safety. It’s interested in its own power. That’s the only thing. Keeping it and expanding it wherever possible.” George Carlin We’re in a national state of denial.
