Oops! We were wrong about the Severity of the Wuhan Virus

by: Brent Smith

Well I’ll be. Another computer model has completely overblown the severity of something. First, decades of global warming doomsday scenarios developed by computer models have been proven to be complete crap, and now the Wuhan coronavirus computer generated sick and death toll numbers are found to be not even close.

But we humans sure do love to panic. It sometimes seems that we thrive on it. I think it’s why so many love horror movies.

So, without ever questioning the method or results of the “scientific” community, we, like lemmings, dutifully hunker down in shelters and comply with the edicts of “experts.” For the “experts” can never be wrong.

Well, the experts were apparently wrong when they gave us the dire warning that we best be prepared for this to last 12-18 months. And now that’s been revised ever so slightly to possibly peaking in as little as 2 to 3 weeks!

Meanwhile, multiple millions are out of work, businesses are forced to close and possibly for good. Supply shortages are everywhere and more than likely, the suicide rate will spike due the fear instilled in people. read more

As such scientists have started designing computer chips that work in a similar way to the brain, using artificial neurons and synapses. Now Intel has unveiled its most powerful “neuromorphic” computing system to date. Named Pohoiki Springs, this system packs in 100 million neurons, putting it on par with the brain of a small mammal.

Yellow Journalists Blame Trump for Man’s Death

by: Brent Smith

On Tuesday, the ultra-leftist Guardian website posted an article entitled: “Arizona man dies after attempting to take Trump coronavirus ‘cure’.”

Well that’s a surprise on at least two fronts. First – I wasn’t aware that Trump was president, a doctor and a research scientist. Who knew?

And second, what kind of moron would drink fish tank cleaner – for any reason?

Oh and there is a third point, yet it’s no surprise. It’s the Guardian’s practice of yellow journalism when it comes to reporting on Trump.

If one would read the entire article, you don’t discover the facts, as they are, until paragraph 11 – at least three quarters of the way through the article. The article is only 15 paragraphs long. read more
