    I don't like Morrison's other stuff either.

    If anything about Covid drove Trump out of power, it was his response to it, not the pandemic itself. If he had taken a more unifying, evidence-based approach and shown federal-level leadership, he would probably be president today. Instead he lied about it repeatedly, left states to fend for themselves, held bizarre press conferences with contradictory and misleading information and let the White House hold a super-spreader event where he himself was infected.

    So I guess the theory is: China planned the pandemic, predicted Trump's response and Trump, with all the intelligence information and resources of the US government at his disposal, played right into their hands and lost himself the election.

    Jean-Claude Van Johnson is a secret agent who makes movies on location under the name Jean-Claude Van Damme but it's actually a cover story for his covert ops. Lasted six episodes on Amazon Prime. :D

    I personally don't get to upset with these conspiracy theories under the circumstances. We have been living with Covid and Covid lockdowns for over a year. The human brain can only take so much. People or going to start growing angry and feeling controlled at some point with this stuff. If we're still doing this a year later don't be surprised if you to start to succumb. Doesn't matter if it is true or not.

    At some point soon we are going to get to a point where the majority of people are going to collectively agree that the benefits outweigh the risks of getting back to normal. Having that conversation is completely reasonable.

    Saying that it's about fascism and mind control is not.

    No reasonable person could look at Biden's behavior and come to the conclusion he's not mentally sharp. What, because he tripped on a staircase and stutters sometimes?

    Well you can always say he is sharp because they are pumping so many drugs into him. You know I don't know why it took so long to think of this and it come to me a couple years ago but with the kind of stress and workload of being President I got wonder if most of them were on something just to make it through the constant days of stress and little sleep. Is it possible that ever President we have had going back to JFK has actually been something of a drug addict. I mean I am almost certain Trump was being fueled by who knows how much cocaine during his 4 years.

    I'd heard that he snorted Adderall. Had it hidden in his sock drawer.
