"Those who recognize the stupidity and fickleness of the masses will not be remotely surprised by anything they do." -- Nicolas Poussin
"The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority." -- Martin Luther King Jr. (A Knock at Midnight, June 11, 1967)
SARS-CoV-2 is the cause of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Here, we investigated the interaction of this new coronavirus with Vero cells using high resolution scanning electron microscopy. Surface morphology, the interior of infected cells and the distribution of viral particles in both environments were observed 2 and 48 h after infection. We showed areas of viral processing, details of vacuole contents, and viral interactions with the cell surface. Intercellular connections were also approached, and viral particles were adhered to these extensions suggesting direct cell-to-cell transmission of SARS-CoV-2.
Mark Levin appeared on the Sean Hannity show this week to talk about the FBI raid on Trump’s Florida home.
He called it the worst attack on our republic in modern history.
Hillary attorney Marc Elias tweeted last night what the corrupt Democrat and Deep State plans are behind the Mar-a-Lago raid.
A longtime Democratic legislator in Kentucky who became secretary of the state’s Justice and Public Safety Cabinet has been charged with first-degree rape.
In an outrageous and unprecedented move by Christopher Wray’s grossly partisan F.B.I., Mar-a-Lago was raided by numerous agents, even breaking into the President’s personal safe. CEO Adam Hardage says he did not fight and see his brothers die for this, “This America of Tyrants.”
After 4 Wars and 6 Deployments post 9/11 in Iraq, Afghanistan, West Africa, Jordan, and Syria, Special Ops Veteran Adam Hardage says he sees his current mission clear as day; Defending America against Tyranny.
Adam Hardage is calling on fellow veterans and Americans of all walks to join him Sunday 8/14 at the FBI HQ in Washington DC to protest the out-of-control FBI and its actions against President Trump.
Hardage says “what the FBI has done is an inciteful act, which is tantamount to an act of war. They are fools to think America will accept this.”
“Now, there is no question as to why Hunter Biden is not under investigation for negotiating crack prices with underage prostitutes and working with his Father to line his own pockets and sell out America,” says Hardage. “They have taken our once trusted institutions and corrupted them to their bones.”
Please, South Carolina fix your Senator problem!
Senator Tim Scott joined CBS Mornings on Tuesday and gave his seal of approval after the regime raided President Trump’s home on Monday night in their continued quest to discover a Trump crime.
This was unprecedented in US history.
The Democrat-socialists are now jailing their political opposition and raiding the homes of President Trump and his staunchest supporters.
Senator Tim Scott has no problem with this.
In the name of preserving carefully negotiated legislation, Senate Democrats’ leaders united their caucus to vote down amendments that would have added the party’s Medicare expansion plan and expanded child tax credit into the final spending bill now moving through Congress.
That unity, though, was not universally enforced: Soon after those votes, seven Democratic senators joined with Republicans to cast a pivotal vote shielding their private equity donors from a new corporate minimum tax.
The seven Democrats who joined the GOP to give private equity firms that $35 billion gift were: Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly of Arizona, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff of Georgia, Jacky Rosen and Catherine Cortez-Masto of Nevada, and Maggie Hassan (N.H.).
Five of the seven Democrats are among the Senate’s top recipients of campaign donations from private equity donors, according to data from OpenSecrets. The group collectively raked in more than $1.4 million of campaign cash from the private equity industry, which has become a huge source of capital for the fossil fuel conglomerates that are creating the climate crisis.

This morning Russia’s RT reported that Twitter had suspended the official account of Russia’s Foreign Ministry:
Twitter has temporarily suspended the account belonging to Russia’s foreign ministry, officials in Moscow have revealed. According to the ministry’s spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, the punitive measure was imposed after the diplomats cited a Russian military commander, who had alleged the US could have been behind the Covid-19 pandemic.
On Tuesday, Zakharova posted a message on her Telegram channel, saying that on August 5, Twitter “blocked for seven days the official account of the foreign ministry in English.” The diplomat explained that the harsh reaction had been triggered by the ministry posting a tweet featuring excerpts from a speech delivered earlier by the head of Russia’s Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection Troops, General-Lieutenant, Igor Kirillov.
The ministry’s tweet in question cited claims that the United States Agency for International Development could have been behind the Covid-19 pandemic…

European countries supporting Kiev will sooner or later begin to wonder whether Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky is doing everything right, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday, commenting on Zelensky's interview with the Washington Post, in which he said, among other things, that Western countries should ban all Russians from entering their territory.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’ emails were reportedly seized by investigators in the probe into the “Cum-Ex” tax fraud scheme which siphoned off billions of euros from central banks across Europe.
According to a report on Monday from the Hamburger Abendblatt newspaper, Olaf Scholz’ official email address from when he served as mayor of Hamburg — email@example.com — was taken by investigators in March.
The investigation is centred around the “Cum-Ex” — Latin for with-without — tax fraud scheme, described as “the biggest tax theft in the history of Europe”. The scheme saw traders and banks exploit the time lag between when a trade was executed and when it was actually settled, enabling some to claim more than one tax refund from the government as it was unclear who exactly owned the share during the interval between the sale and payment.
This meant that each side of the transaction could claim a tax rebate from the government on the same money. The fraud scheme was so successful that it is believed to have tricked treasuries across Europe into paying out over 55 billion euros in taxpayer cash.
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky may go to the G20 summit in Indonesia if his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin is to be there, advisor to the Ukrainian presidential office Mikhail Podolyak said.
"The president believes that he should be on the territory of Ukraine, and today online formats allow for effective work at any summit," Podolyak said in an interview with the BBC's Ukrainian service, "But, if he [Putin] will be present [at the summit], we will certainly have to think about the necessity of our presence."
He said that the presence of the Russian leader at any event "indirectly means that the summit organizers are legitimizing Russia's position" on the Ukrainian issue.
A Crimean official has slammed reported about an emergency situation regime on the peninsula as a fake.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) released new data about the growing dangers for children from predators on the internet.
“The scary reality of online exploitation is that rates of crime are continually growing,” said NCMEC on Sunday. “In 2020, NCMEC saw a 97.5 percent increase of online enticement reports & in Dec. 2021, our CyberTipline surpassed 100 million reports of suspected child sexual exploitation.”
In the daylight hours following the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida home — Mar-a-Lago — reports revealed the judge who signed the sealed search warrant resigned as a federal prosecutor in 2007 before being hired to represent the accused co-conspirators of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

FBI agents reportedly searched through former first lady Melania Trump’s wardrobe during Monday’s raid of Mar-a-Lago, the Trump family’s residence in Florida.
Former President Donald Trump announced the FBI raided his home in a statement issued Monday.
“These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar- A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump said. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”
In addition to searching through Trump’s office, FBI agents also combed through Melania Trump’s wardrobe.
As the New York Post reported:
FBI agents scoured Melania Trump’s wardrobe and spent several hours combing through Donald Trump’s private office, breaking open his safe and rifling through drawers when they raided the former First Family’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida Monday morning.
However, the search warrant was reportedly limited to finding presidential records as well as evidence of classified information being stored at Mar-a-Lago, the Post reported.
The FBI raid of the 128-room, 62,500-square foot property lasted over nine hours, as agents reportedly arrived at 9:00 a.m. and did not leave until after 6:30 p.m.
The raid was conducted by more than 30 plain clothes FBI agents from a Florida and Washington field office, according to the Post.
Western alliances will collapse in the war over Russian LNG
Josep Borrell, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs, noted that the EU managed to reduce Russia's share in gas imports from 40% at the beginning of the year to 20%. This was made possible, among other things, owing to an increase the share of LNG. However, it turns out that this LNG is also Russian, and this winter there will be a life-and-death struggle for it.
Anglo-Saxons break up alliances with Europe and Asia
According to The Wall Street Journal, Europe will have to fight with Asia for Russian liquefied natural gas in the coming months. Against the backdrop of considerable decline in exports of pipeline gas from Russia and an almost fivefold increase in the cost of gas in Europe, the LNG price in Asia and Europe has equalized.
LNG exporters today benefit from breaking long-term contracts with Asian customers, even if they need to pay compensations and redirect supplies to the EU. According to Reuters, Belgium's LNG imports from the US increased by about 650%, while Pakistan's US LNG imports collapsed by 72%.
