  1. No such thing a COrona wireus. This is ALL a hoax. No one can die from a wireus. THEY ARE LYING! If you are falling into their net of fear, you are failing their test. Do you remember what they wreaked after the fake 911? This is much worse. Defy their illegal, unconstitutional suggestions. Remember that six feet of separation is where they put you at the end of your life. Coincidence? Use your common sense and do NOT let them reduce you to an angry fearful three-year-old.

    In the normal 2017-18 flu season we lost something like 61,000 lives. No one even looked askant. They made this whole present emergency thing up over a fake wireus. DO NOT fall for it! You are enslaving yourselves.

  2. How does this square with your claim that Obama was to declare martial law at the end of his second term, then refuse to leave office?

    You were so sure.

  3. Sympathies go out to the family of the man who died. BUT, what was his neighborhood? Where did he shop? His hobbies, contacts, social network, bingo playing pals, etc. Citizens are entitled to know this while respecting his family. What can Cal and his associates do per FOIA to get this info? Important to all of us who live in this County.

  4. CP? Nope. No wireus. The only people that died had just been released from the hospital by a few days. People die all the time but this is very suspicious. Normal patients that went to the hospital for various reasons and now they are dead. What did they do to those victims in the hospital? There is no wireus.

  5. Martin? who are you talking to? I don’t talk about what actors do. There is no telling what script they are reading or enacting. Just know that you should NEVER trust them. ANY of them!

  6. Asian?


    Did he really die of covid?

    I don’t believe our lying health dept

  7. bred? You are not listening. There is no such thing. There is NOTHING to fear. There is no planned demonic. Why are you encouraging a witch hunt over lies? You are dangerous. Your kind was famous in 1933 Germany. You are a minion for the new world order with your fear. Find the witch! We’re all gonna die if we don’t burn the witch! How stupid and backward are you?

  8. Cindy- Why don’t you put your money where your mouth is, literally, and go out and lick all of the public door handles, gas pumps and grocery carts that you can find. If you don’t then you’re nothing but a fraud, a hack and tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist. Seriously.

  9. 1933 Germany, Cindy?

    I think you mean 1933 America when the Great War criminal Roosevelt got inaugurated.

  10. For my own freedom, I hereby proclaim all deaths supposedly caused by the flu are also a hoax. It is time to realize nobody dies and there are no diseases. In fact, all those deaths caused by the tender bombing coming from the US Military around the world…also a hoax. Stay tuned…hug your republikkklan neighbor…and be free…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  11. And if they do die, Angel, it is by no fault of their own.

    It is the result of general racism, sexism, xenophobia, or environmental racism!
