COVID-19: A team of researchers from Washington University School of Medicine studied blood samples from 77 people about one month after they had recovered from COVID-19. Additional blood samples were collected three more times at three-month intervals to track antibody production; memory B cells and bone marrow were also collected from some of the participants. Despite the fact that most of the participants had experienced only mild cases of the virus, the team found they all had acquired long-term, likely life-long immunity to SARS-CoV-2.

I’ve heard of a number of people who believe they’ve had the ‘rona twice. My best guess is that one or both times they felt rotten and assumed it was COVID but never actually got diagnosed and/or had something with similar symptoms that the COVID test pops a false positive for and/or damaged their natural immunity by getting vaxxxed and boosted.

DEAD WHITE MALES: [4:25] – Thomas Sowell celebrates the two mid-western bicycle mechanics who changed the world and talks about the importance of studying true history.

EGYPTIAN BLUE PIGMENT: [3:46] – The formula for the world’s first artificial pigment, Egyptian blue, was lost centuries ago, but scientists may have figured out how it was made. And it turns out, it has a unique property that not only will help art historians detect forgeries, but could potentially be used to fight crime and possibly even save lives.

END TIMES PROPHECY: [11:56] – Catholic visionary Luz de Maria reported that, on May 7, 2022, St. Michael the Archangel spoke to her very urgently about the coming of Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast. He warned all of us to pray and be faithful lest we lose eternal life.

GW: The stupidity of Leftist ideology apparently has no bounds.

HUNTER’S LAPTOP: CLICK [6:24] to hear a newly released audio file from Dec. 3, 2018, in which Hunter says, “[My father will] talk about anything that I want him to … if I say it’s important to me, then he will work a way in which to make it a part of his platform. … My dad respects me more than he respects anyone in the world. … the man I most admire in the world, that god to me, thinks I’m a god. … I’m better than my dad.

MIDTERMS: On Tuesday, South Carolina Republicans chose the Trump-backed challenger over the incumbent who had supported the impeachment of former President Donald Trump.

NDEs: [12:58] – Skeptics like to attribute Near Death Experiences to random brain activity at the moment of death. But some of them include something called a “veridical perception” that rules out that explanation. Veridical perceptions are things a person remembers from after they were clinically dead that they they could not have known through ordinary means. In this case, the dead woman saw her stepfather buying and eating a candy bar from a vending machine in the hallway of the hospital. There is no way the woman would have imagined that happening, because the man was a health nut who never ate sweets. But he and her mother later verified that he had bought and eaten a candy bar.

I just want to say one thing about her testimony, which is that Catholic teaching says that our bodies are not temporary meat suits, as she implies, but rather integral parts of our true beings. When we die, we basically become amputees awaiting the End of Time when God will restore us to our bodies, which will have been resurrected and glorified the way Jesus’ body was.

PARENTING: When a hobo told Andy he should just let Opie “decide for himself” how he wanted to live, Andy replied, “No, I’m afraid it don’t work that way. You can’t let a young’un decide for himself. He’ll grab at the first flashy thing with shiny ribbons on it. Then, when he finds out there’s a hook in it, it’s too late. Wrong ideas come packaged with so much glitter that it’s hard to convince ‘em that other things might be better in the long run. All a parent can do is say ‘wait’ and ‘trust me’ and try to keep temptation away.”

PELOSI: CLICK [10:45] to hear Jesse Watters talk about Paul Pelosi’s DUI arrest and the DA’s attempts to protect Nancy’s drunken spouse. The NY Post writes, “When Paul was 16, his 19-year-old brother died after the sports car Paul was driving flipped over during a joyride in San Mateo, the San Francisco Examiner reported at the time. A cop told the outlet at the time that Paul said his older brother had urged him to slow down in the moments before the crash.”

S&G: Popstar Christina Aguilera wore a “Hulk”-inspired outfit Saturday during an “all-age LA Pride in the Park music festival” that featured a ginormous, sparkly, green dildo strap-on. She and Kim Petras performed the song “XXX” while miming a sexual act. Aquilera also played a video montage criticizing Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill.

Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi appeared on an episode of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” a reality TV series in which men dressed as exaggerated versions of women compete to earn prizes and the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.” Pelosi thanked participants for “the joy and beauty” they “bring to the world” and said that their ability to cross-dress and perform in sexually disordered shows is “what America is all about.”

Vice President Kamala Harris made an appearance at Capitol Pride in Washington, D.C. where she gave a big hug to a scantily clad drag queen. Then, she tweeted the photo with the tag line, “Love is love. Happy Pride!

At a civil rights conference in Lansing, Michigan, Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) declared that “drag queens make everything better” and called for “a drag queen for every school.”

TRANS REGRET: In the video, a young woman talks about how she was misdiagnosed as trans when her real problem was autism. [3:59] – At the link below, TulipR tells his disturbing and deeply tragic experience with bottom surgery. You can read it at the link, after which I hope all y’all say a heartfelt prayer for this man and all the others like him who have been or are being suckered into mutilating their bodies.

VFAUXTUS: The DNC’s Woman’s Leadership Forum scheduled a fundraiser for the end of May at which Kamala Harris would be the main attraction. Ticket prices ranged from $250 to $50,000 and the invites, sent out on May 5, hyped the event as an incredible opportunity to mingle in person with the First Black Female Vice President. But, because of low ticket sales, they canceled at the last minute and rescheduled the event for the fall.

VIRGINIA: Loudoun County is way out of control. [:52] – CLICK [5:12] to hear Laura Ingraham’s report.
