Although perhaps on the wane, fire [above] has continued to menace Wine Country in northern California, for certain.
“I’m sort of numb at the moment,” said Sonoma County Supervisor Susan Gorin as she drove away at about 1 a.m. from her evacuated home in the Oakmont community on Santa Rosa’s eastern edge the other day, according to Associated Press.
“All of Oakmont’s 4,500 residents were ordered to leave. Gorin has lived this nightmare before. Three years ago, the Nuns Fire consumed her Oakmont home, which is still being rebuilt while she lives in another home in the same neighborhood.”
Here’s the point: While fleeing to a hotel in Novato, Gorin contemplated the horrendous prospect that the same fate could befall her once more. “It seems surreal to me that we would be facing this again in some of the same areas that lost so many homes so traumatically just three short years ago,” Gorin said. “It’s like God has no sympathy, no empathy for Sonoma County.”
That made us look into Sonoma County, which, it turns out, has quite an extensive pagan network of New Agers and witches.
And three years ago, this was an actual headline in a local newspaper, the Press Democrat: “NO DEARTH OF SONOMA COUNTY LOCATIONS NAMED FOR THE DEVIL.” Said the article underneath: “Devils Kitchen is in the Mayacamas range northeast of Santa Rosa, near the eastern edge of Pepperwood Preserve. On the other side of the county, near Cazadero, are Devils Ribs, Devils Backbone and Devil Creek. East of Cloverdale is Devils Den Canyon.”
Oh — and so why the surprise at fire?
Sonoma County is also home to Bohemian Grove, that super-secret club for the world’s elite — presidents, prime ministers, treasury secretaries, secretaries of defense, military leaders, royalty, media moguls, and so forth –which is located along the Russian River at Monte Rio. Some believe that, like the Bilderberg Group, the club is at the center of plans for a new world order. Others go so far as to shout, “Illuminati!”
Each year, a towering owl oversees the “cremation of cares,” during which robed participants gather around a huge fire as the effigy of a man is burned.
Many major decisions determining world politics are thought to have germinated here (including the Manhattan Project; not necessarily good fruit). Sonoma: wonder not at what plague thee.
On another scientific matter: Yes, the virus.
Earlier this month, a priest we once met, Father Robert Altier, who celebrated Mass for our Minneapolis retreat, gave a 20-minute homily at the Church of St. Raphael in Crystal. In it, he claimed covid-19 was a “man-made” virus developed in a North Carolina lab, finished in China, and unleashed intentionally on an unsuspecting world—and that the forthcoming vaccines were either “heinous” or “pure evil,” in the words of a newspaper. He was rebuked for that homily by the archbishop of Minneapolis, who said priests were not medical experts.
However, there are, as we have argued, including in a “special report,” reasons for suspecting a laboratory source for covid. We’ll not get into the details here. Suffice it to say that a molecular biologist at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, Aliana Chan, who worked in Singapore and is intimately cognizant of Chinese coronavirus databases, says the mystery is how the virus suddenly appeared in humans without signs of the normal mutations when a pathogen hops from one species — like a bat or pangolin — to a human (as had been hypothesized for the Wuhan-wet-market outbreak, which she says is a cover story).
How was it that SARS-CoV-2, as the bug is formally known, was perfectly adapted for humans upon entry?
There are three possibilities for the pandemic, she claims:
— That it has actually been around much longer than most medical experts think, and working under the radar, mutated and adapted to humans before it was noticed.
Possible. In the U.S. are some who think they have had a variant of it, going back more than a year.
— That it just happened by remarkable coincidence to be human-ready when it evolved in bats.
Mutations do occur sporadically — and sometimes unfortunately.
— And third, that it was bio-engineered in a laboratory and accidentally released.
Chan, who has been persecuted by fellow scientists for her views, not to mention by China, says it’s possible but unlikely that coronavirus has been circulating without medical notice for a long while, and also argues that if it was human-ready while in a bat, its composition would have been disadvantageous to bats (making this even more unlikely).
That leaves us with the lab, a leak from a lab — wherever said lab may have been.
There are two in Wuhan.
There are dozens around the world — dozens! — that play around with equally dangerous pathogens (and on average have two accidents every week).
How we could allow such laboratories to manipulate viruses to make them more contagious and lethal (in order to study their potential for causing a pandemic) is amazing. They call this “gain of function” — and as long ago as 2013, a group based at Harvard formed to fight what such labs were and are doing.
But they are still around, and Chan implies that science itself is at stake: that they are afraid its edifice would collapse if a lab-created virus was conclusively proven as behind the global crisis (and now one million deaths — at least).
We think of the 1990 “word of knowledge,” which said: “My greatest nemesis is science, even more so than the media. The science that alters life, the science which creates a counterfeit heaven, the science that toils with the womb and genes, the science that has filled the air with the power of the enemy, the science which creates chemical witchcraft and fouls the earth, the science which seeks to create life but cannot in actuality even sustain it, the science which has denied God.
“This will fall, and all of its creations with it.
“The seat of Satan in America is north of San Francisco.”
There it is, all in one neat package.
Sonoma is north of San Francisco. So are laboratories (see, places like Berkeley).
Stay tuned. We’ll have more to say about this — those labs — shortly.
