So, not being an observer of PP, do you think that Martenson has some agenda, and if so, what is it?
It's basically neo-Malthusian, based on the theme that peak oil, environmental decay and global warming are going to cause an economic and social collapse in the near future. And I mostly agree with all that, so of course I wouldn't call it an "agenda", but you might think so.

Fairtex also enthusiastically endorses the site's predominant themes. The site promotes precious metals investment for preppers, and Fairtex also agrees that precious metals are good long term investments. He writes a daily column about action in the commodities markets. But there's a bit of drama to the interaction between Fairtex and Martenson, because Martenson believes the markets are manipulated by central bankers, while Fairtex disputes that. Similarly, Martenson believes that 911 was an inside job, while Fairtex buys the official story. But, Martenson wants to maintain his mainstream credibility, so discussions about 911 are relegated to a "controversial topics" page on the website.

All of this is rather eerie in the context
Speaking of the eerie context, here's a video of the opening ceremonies of the Military World Games held in Wuhan in October 2019, at the same time as the Event 201 pandemic simulation exercise. This is the creepiest thing I've seen since the Gotthard Base Tunnel opening ceremony. There's a prominently featured Satanic five pointed star, but mostly the show seems to be depicting germs multiplying in a Petri dish.

This definitely puts my money on a Globalist agenda as the motivation. But, who pulled the figurative trigger by releasing the virus? A patsy 'nation'?

A Bing-search of "Aspirin and Spanish Flu" brings an interesting angle into view. Karen Starko contends that Aspirin is well-known to deplete Vitamin C and mess with oxygen metabolism in some way. Is 5-G the new Aspirin?

The SpaceBuster guy has a Bitchute channel. After watching the series of his that you linked on the Catastrophism thread, this one looked interesting.
John, I can't find where anyone here has ever posted a link to SpaceBuster before. He lost me at 0:21 in this video where he says that "airborne contagious 'viruses' do NOT exist".

There's room for debate about what happened with particular virus 'epidemics' such as SARS 1. There's still room for debate about exactly what's going on with Covid-19. But this proclamation strikes me as anti-scientific BS on the same level as Flat Earth doctrine.

Here's an article from Encyclopedia of Microbiology entitled "History of Virology". It's much better written than the article by the same name at Wikipedia. But, the Wikipedia article is more comprehensive and gives many more references.

Hopefully if you read through some of this material, you can convince yourself that viruses do exist, and they do cause infectious disease? And therefore, SpaceBuster is completely clueless and deserves to be ignored?

Is 5-G the new Aspirin?
I've seen claims that Huawei has an important presence in Wuhan. But, their HQ is in Shenzhen, near Hong Kong.

Thread about 5G here: https://postflaviana.org/community/index.php?threads/the-5g-problem-s.2558/

Jerry - it's been a long and winding road regarding viruses and I'm really not convinced that what researchers say they are documenting is actually proof of their thesis. The following 1998 address to the 12th World AIDS Conference in Geneva, by Eleni Papadopoulos gives some sense of what I've been reading off-and-on since participating in the Swine Flu program in 1976 as a part-time injection-gun repair tech in Detroit (got sicker than I'd ever been for a week - we had to take the vaccine to work the program). The entire milieu of big-science, big-medical, big-university, and the financiers of same, leave me beyond disappointed in them. I only have enough time to consider the arguments of those who counter them at this point in life. Certainly, a high-percentage of those are woo-woo/controlled-op, but not all. And even the ww/co's drop clues. So, yes, I think it is a giant con game, and I won't bite on the Flat Earth thing. Look at it from a practical standpoint; it doesn't really matter whether you're right or I'm right or some other facet of this is more correct. TPTB are going to go full-tilt boogie into whatever scenario they see fit, and the population will likely follow. I'll check out the 5-G thread you linked. Gratzi

The "Virus Myth" website doesn't claim that viruses in general don't exist. It says that the HIV virus has never been isolated using classical methods of virology. And that HIV virus doesn't cause the AIDS disease.

And I can understand the basis for raising that question. AIDS is very atypical compared to most viral diseases. In the west, it's associated with anal sex and drug use, which is an odd set of co-factors.

But, this is very different from claiming that flu or mumps or polio viruses don't exist, or that the rhinovirus doesn't cause the common cold.

I only have enough time to consider the arguments of those who counter them at this point in life.
It seems to me that the "official sources" need to be correct at least 90% of the time, otherwise people would be even more suspicious than they are now.

Since you don't have time to research the evidence that HIV really is an infectious virus that causes AIDS, I'll provide a link & summary. For the studies backing the assertions, please follow the link.

https://aidsinfo.nih.gov/news/528/the-evidence-that-hiv-causes-aids

Evidence that HIV Causes AIDS
1. HIV fulfills Koch's postulates as the cause of AIDS. ...
With regard to postulate #1, numerous studies from around the world show that virtually all AIDS patients are HIV-seropositive; that is they carry antibodies that indicate HIV infection. With regard to postulate #2, modern culture techniques have allowed the isolation of HIV in virtually all AIDS patients, as well as in almost all HIV-seropositive individuals with both early- and late-stage disease. In addition, the polymerase chain (PCR) and other sophisticated molecular techniques have enabled researchers to document the presence of HIV genes in virtually all patients with AIDS, as well as in individuals in earlier stages of HIV disease. Postulate #3 has been fulfilled in tragic incidents involving three laboratory workers with no other risk factors who have developed AIDS or severe immunosuppression after accidental exposure to concentrated, cloned HIV in the laboratory. In all three cases, HIV was isolated from the infected individual, sequenced and shown to be the infecting strain of virus. In another tragic incident, transmission of HIV from a Florida dentist to six patients has been documented by genetic analyses of virus isolated from both the dentist and the patients. The dentist and three of the patients developed AIDS and died, and at least one of the other patients has developed AIDS. Five of the patients had no HIV risk factors other than multiple visits to the dentist for invasive procedures ...
2. AIDS and HIV infection are invariably linked in time, place and population group. ...
3. Many studies agree that only a single factor, HIV, predicts whether a person will develop AIDS. ... Other viral infections, bacterial infections, sexual behavior patterns and drug abuse patterns do not predict who develops AIDS. Individuals from diverse backgrounds, including heterosexual men and women, homosexual men and women, hemophiliacs, sexual partners of hemophiliacs and transfusion recipients, injection-drug users and infants have all developed AIDS, with the only common denominator being their infection with HIV ...
4. In cohort studies, severe immunosuppression and AIDS-defining illnesses occur almost exclusively in individuals who are HIV-infected. ...
5. Before the appearance of HIV, AIDS-related diseases such as PCP, KS and MAC were rare in developed countries; today, they are common in HIV-infected individuals. ...
6. In developing countries, patterns of both rare and endemic diseases have changed dramatically as HIV has spread, with a far greater toll now being exacted among the young and middle-aged, including well-educated members of the middle class. ...
7. In studies conducted in both developing and developed countries, death rates are markedly higher among HIV-seropositive individuals than among HIV-seronegative individuals. ...
8. HIV can be detected in virtually everyone with AIDS. ...
9. Numerous studies of HIV-infected people have shown that high levels of infectious HIV, viral antigens, and HIV nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) in the body predict immune system deterioration and an increased risk for developing AIDS. Conversely, patients with low levels of virus have a much lower risk of developing AIDS. ...
10. The availability of potent combinations of drugs that specifically block HIV replication has dramatically improved the prognosis for HIV-infected individuals. Such an effect would not be seen if HIV did not have a central role in causing AIDS. ...
11. Among HIV-infected patients who receive anti-HIV therapy, those whose viral loads are driven to low levels are much less likely to develop AIDS or die than patients who do not respond to therapy. Such an effect would not be seen if HIV did not have a central role in causing AIDS. ...
12. Nearly everyone with AIDS has antibodies to HIV. ...
13. Numerous serosurveys show that AIDS is common in populations where many individuals have HIV antibodies. Conversely, in populations with low seroprevalence of HIV antibodies, AIDS is extremely rare. ...
14. The specific immunologic profile that typifies AIDS -- a persistently low CD4+ T-cell count -- is extraordinarily rare in the absence of HIV infection or other known cause of immunosuppression. ...
15. Newborn infants have no behavioral risk factors for AIDS, yet many children born to HIV-infected mothers have developed AIDS and died. ...
16. The HIV-infected twin develops AIDS while the uninfected twin does not. ...
17. Studies of transfusion-acquired AIDS cases have repeatedly led to the discovery of HIV in the patient as well as in the blood donor. ...
18. HIV is similar in genetic structure and morphology to other lentiviruses that often cause immunodeficiency in their animal hosts in addition to slow, progressive wasting disorders, neurodegeneration and death. ...
19. HIV causes the death and dysfunction of CD4+ T lymphocytes in vitro and in vivo. ...
The entire milieu of big-science, big-medical, big-university, and the financiers of same, leave me beyond disappointed in them.
I understand your disappointment. But the fact is that people are living far longer lives now than ever before. Life expectancy was only 38 years in 1850, before infectious diseases were understood and controlled (primarily through hygiene, but also by antibiotics and vaccines).

Don't let your anger make you discount the real progress that's been made, or the valid scientific basis of modern medicine.

I'll admit that even if SpaceBuster is woo-woo, he might drop some valid clues. If you saw anything interesting, please let me know the time marker.

TPTB are going to go full-tilt boogie into whatever scenario they see fit, and the population will likely follow.
Yes. I would argue that covid-19 is a dangerous public health threat, that could kill tens or even hundreds of millions; and ALSO that the PTB are going to take advantage of it to move forward with their plans for world domination. Those two propositions are not mutually exclusive.

Those two propositions are not mutually exclusive.
Especially when you throw in a third proposition, a dramatically falling stock market hand in hand with the now officially named pandemic. So is this how the earth is supposed to be cleansed of the elderly "useless eaters"? Is 2020 shaping up to be their last hurrah, as we have seen in a political way with several Democratic Presidential candidates so far, or is this all another way of polarizing the country, with the "don't panic it's all overblown" crowd versus the "overstock up on everything now" isolationists before that even becomes mandatory? Will 2020 go down in history as "The Year of Living Dangerously", not to mention as one of the climate change "Years of Living Dangerously"?

"....The Hong Kong flu was very similar to the current outbreak in being extremely contagious but with a fairly low mortality rate. 30% of the UK population is estimated to have been infected in the Hong Kong flu pandemic. The death rate was about 0.5%, mostly elderly or with underlying health conditions.

But there was no massive panic, no second by second media hysteria, over Hong Kong flu. Let me start being unpopular. "Man in his 80's already not very well from previous conditions, dies of flu" is not and should not be a news headline. The coverage is prurient, intrusive, unbalanced and designed to cause hysteria. ...."

It may be true that media coverage may be playing a role, but the fatality numbers from some countries are indicating that the rate will be significantly higher than with typical flu epidemics. The problem(s) are that our medical systems run very close to full capacity, if not full capicity. I read a report from a doctor in Italy that hospitals there are now unable to treat such as trauma and stroke patients, because otherwise separate, specialized ICU's are being co-opted to treat infectious Covid-19 cases. Surgeries that are not absolutely necessary are being cancelled. The way our economic system generally works today, most hospitals and their supply chains keep little excess inventory on supplies. Warehousing is expensive. So they have to order such, including antibiotics (for Covid-19 caused secondary infections) from ... China, on demand, where many workers have not returned to work.

The Hong Kong flu was very similar to the current outbreak in being extremely contagious but with a fairly low mortality rate.
Although it was reposted to SOTT, the quoted article is by Craig Murray. I take his opinions very seriously.

The idea that covid-19 is no worse than Hong Kong flu seems very dubious to me. I don't see any evidence that hospitals were being filled to capacity and then overrun with patients hovering at the edge of death in 1968, like we are seeing today.

But if Murray's assessment of the facts was different, I'm not sure how much of the rest of his message would change. He's mainly trying to tell us not to take ourselves so seriously:

What worries me about the current reaction to coronavirus, is that it seems to reflect a belief that death is an aberration, rather than a part of the natural order of things. As the human species continues to expand massively in numbers, and as it continues casually to make other species extinct, it is inevitable that the excessive and crowded human population will become susceptible to disease.

As we see the catastrophic effects of human beings on the environment, including on other species and the climate, I am genuinely perplexed as to what are the underlying assumptions and goals of humankind. Do we really believe that medical science could and should eliminate all disease? ...
Yes wash your hands, bin your tissues, keep things clean. Don’t hang around someone who has the flu. Take advantage of everything modern medicine can do to help you. But don’t be too shocked at the idea that some sick people die, especially if they are old. We are not Gods, we are mortal. We need to reconnect to that idea.
Which, I suppose, is very good advice. Getting into an emotional panic (as I am naturally inclined to do) is completely useless.

Speaking of the eerie context, here's a video of the opening ceremonies of the Military World Games held in Wuhan in October 2019, at the same time as the Event 201 pandemic simulation exercise.
Say whaaat?

A spokesman for the Chinese government on Thursday promoted a conspiracy theory that the coronavirus was brought to the city of Wuhan by the U.S. military.
"It might be US Army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan," said Zhao Lijian, a Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman, Business Insider reported.
The comment, an alternate explanation Beijing is pushing amid global criticism of the country's failure to mitigate the virus, comes as the Chinese government has increasingly disputed widespread international reporting that the virus was first detected in Wuhan.
The conspiracy theory, which has recently gained steam in China, instead suggests the virus was brought to the country in 2019 by U.S. athletes participating in the Military World Games that were held in Wuhan. ...

Say what one wants, it's no longer just kooks on the Internet, but an actual government -- with nuclear weapons.

Looks like this matter is becoming a major bone of contention:

US Assistant Secretary of State David Stilwell summoned China's ambassador in Washington to the State Department Friday morning, hours after a prominent Chinese official suggested that the US military may have been responsible for bringing the coronavirus to Wuhan, the epicenter of the global pandemic.
That claim was publicly promoted by China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian on Thursday, who pointed to remarks made by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention l director Robert Redfield as proof of a growing conspiracy theory that the coronavirus did not originate in central China, as previously thought, and may have been brought there by the US Army.
"CDC was caught on the spot. When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals? It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!" Zhao tweeted to his more than 300,000 followers.
Chinese ambassador Cui Tiankai was summoned to the State Department shortly after Zhao's comments were posted online.
During Friday's meeting, Stilwell gave a very "stern representation" of the facts to the Chinese ambassador, who was "very defensive," a senior State Department official told CNN. Stilwell did not issue any threats, but the two diplomats had a frank diplomatic discourse, the official said.
Tensions have been brewing for weeks between Washington and Beijing over who is to blame for the coronavirus outbreak. China continues to deny that the virus originated there while top US officials, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have pointed the finger directly at Beijing. ...

Whatever the case, while China's initial response allowed the situation to get out of hand, the USA still has nothing but rhetoric about providing testing to all of its populace ... while the virus is spreading in the wild. Mitch McConnell says no action will be taken one way or another till the 23rd of March after the Senate takes a 1 week recess. All we can do is hope that in the meantime that Agent Orange has indeed been properly exposed. But, ... that's likely the plan all along?

Apparently, McConnell has cancelled the recess and the House and Trump have agreed on a compromise, with the House voting to approve it.

Here's some more on the leak from a Wuhan lab angle:


Here are some interesting comments by a doctor about the 2011 movie, Contagion, and Covid-19:

Breakthrough: Chloroquine phosphate has shown apparent efficacy in treatment of COVID-19 associated pneumonia in clinical studies

Jianjun Gao, Zhenxue Tian, Xu Yang

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) virus is spreading rapidly, and scientists are endeavoring to discover drugs for its efficacious treatment in China. Chloroquine phosphate, an old drug for treatment of malaria, is shown to have apparent efficacy and acceptable safety against COVID-19 associated pneumonia in multicenter clinical trials conducted in China.
South Korea has apparently learned from this Chinese experience. They have one of the lowest reported fatality rates of any of the major countries with Coronavirus outbreaks. Less than 1% so far.

Here's how. They’ve settled on a treatment protocol of either Kaletra or generic chloroquine.

See:

http://www.koreabiomed.com/news/articleView.html?idxno=7428

If more than 10 days have passed since the onset of the illness and the symptoms are mild, physicians do not have to start an antiviral medication, the task force said.
However, if patients are old or have underlying conditions with serious symptoms, physicians should consider an antiviral treatment. If they decide to use the antiviral therapy, they should start the administration as soon as possible, the task force noted.
For the antiviral treatment, the doctors recommended lopinavir 400mg/ritonavir 100mg (Kaletra two tablets, twice a day) or chloroquine 500mg orally per day.
A doctor at a clinic in France also believes that chloroquine is effective.

https://www.archyde.com/it-would-be-a-medical-mistake-not-to-give-chloroquine-against-the-chinese-virus-according-to-professor-didier-raoult/

According to several Chinese scientists, chloroquine, a widely available and inexpensive molecule commonly used to treat malaria, is an effective remedy to cure one of the diseases that cause the most fear today: coronaviruses. ….

When we showed that a drug worked on a hundred people while everyone is having a nervous breakdown, and that there are noodles who say that we are not sure that it works , it does not interest me !
Chinese scientists are very serious people. They are not zozos, and they have shown that chloroquine works. It would honestly be a medical mistake not to give chloroquine to the Chinese coronavirus. It does not make sense. Be serious. Tomorrow you start to be short of breath. You have a Chinese coronavirus and you have 40 fever. And people tell you, “You know, I don’t believe in chloroquine against Chinese coronavirus.” What are you doing ?
At the IHU, we are going to set up a therapeutic protocol. We want to take care of the sick. There are people who come in with a serious illness, and it has been shown that the only treatment for this illness is chloroquine. So, to not give chloroquine, you have to be stuffed!

Where is this resistance coming from? A quick google search turns up just a couple references to chloroquine in mainstream media.
Here at MSN, they've found a Nigerian doctor who says it's a scam, apparently based on nothing more than his experience in Nigeria that it's not typically used there for viruses. And at NBC Bay Area they've found that robo-calls out of India are trying to sell... chloroquine. The network asked the Federal Trade Commission about this, and of course the FTC says not to buy chloroquine from Indian robo-callers. But why are they calling the FTC for medical advice on this fast breaking story? Why didn't they call Gao, Tian & Yang? Or, Dr. Raoult?

Are they going to deny that this works… right up until they realize there’s a shortage?

I sent an email to my concierge doctor about this. She replied with a form letter repeating the CDC advice to wash your hands a lot. Grrr....

This reminds me that Ruby Gray's favorite nostrum, Chlorine Dioxide (aka Miracle Mineral Supplement), was also said to be discovered as an anti-malarial drug. Chloroquine is a chlorine atom with a symmetrical covalent bond to a benzene ring in an organic molecule. I wonder if the antimicrobial effect is similar.

[further Chlorine Dioxide discussion moved to this thread:

https://postflaviana.org/community/index.php?threads/chlorine-dioxide-aka-miracle-mineral-solution.2621/

--JR 3/21/20 ]


Chloroquine has a lot of nasty side effects, especially in overdose. But given a choice between these side effects and malaria or covid-19, I'd take my chances with the side effects.

Since the Covid-19 virus itself is generally not lethal, but rather the secondary bacterial infections, perhaps likely the benefits are in fighting against the secondary infection and little to nothing to do with the virus?

Simone Gao discusses why one might want to question if Chinese infection rates are really coming down. While on the one hand, we were told that the big new hospital is ramping down, we were told that more hospitals are being built.


The following claims that CCP officials have threatened to use Chinese made medical supplies as leverage with the USA. If true, this would be a big mistake, but is it true?

I downloaded the above-linked report by Gao, Tian & Yang, and found that they are definitely claiming antiviral properties. They carried out an in vitro study showing that chloroquine stops covid-19 viral replication process at very low concentrations. They cite two earlier papers showing that chloroquine works as an anti-viral against HIV, SARS 1 and avian flu H5N1. However, the report is very sketchy about the clinical results. The document refers to itself as a "Letter" rather than a research paper, and reads more like a press release and conference report.

As I should've guessed, the organic molecule in chloroquine looks a lot like quinine. That is, chloroquine is basically quinine with a chlorine atom tacked on at the end. Both chloroquine and quinine are effective against malaria bacteria, but Wikipedia doesn't mention that anyone has ever claimed that quinine is an antiviral. So I'm feeling encouraged with my hypothesis that the chlorine atom is responsible for the antiviral property, and that it might be similar in chloroquine and chlorine dioxide.

Simone Gao discusses why one might want to question if Chinese infection rates are really coming down. While on the one hand, we were told that the big new hospital is ramping down, we were told that more hospitals are being built.
Scanning through the transcript of this Simone Gao video, I don't see any evidence at all that any epidemic is raging on to new heights in China. Residents of a high-rise tower in Wuhan are said to be yelling "fake". How many residents, and how would they know anything? What do they believe is "fake": the quarantine, the virus, or the end of the epidemic? More hospitals being built: bureaucratic inertia? Construction projects scheduled expecting the worst?

Documents have allegedly been destroyed. Shandong Province is allegedly underreporting the number of positive results. Officially, Shandong Province ended up with 761 cases and 7 deaths. These allegations are said to be from "internal CCP documents received by Epoch Times".

The program pushes the theory that the virus escaped from the Wuhan biolab. Which is possible, but also a good cover story for any other international agent that wanted to release the virus.

"Zooming In" by Simone Gao, and "China In Focus" are both produced by New Tang Dynasty TV (NTD), based in New York and Toronto. Wikipedia reports that both NTD and "Epoch Times" are owned and operated by expatriate Chinese Falun Gong members.

It's also reported:

In 2019, New Tang Dynasty Television released a docudrama produced by Steve Bannon, the former Breitbart News chairman and advisor to Donald Trump. The film, Claws of the Red Dragon, is about the telecom company Huawei and the Chinese government.

And:

A widely viewed YouTube video channel produced by NTD called Edge of Wonder has been criticized for spreading pseudoscience and the right-wing U.S. conspiracy theory QAnon.
And:

In January 2020, NTD's Japanese channel shared a video on YouTube of a Chinese doctor collapsing in the operating room; it falsely asserted that the doctor was in Wuhan and had collapsed from coronavirus. A fact check by France 24 found that the original video had been published by The Beijing News, of a doctor who had collapsed from overwork and hypoglycemia, not coronavirus, and that the video was filmed in Yunnan province, which at the time had reported no cases of COVID-19.

Larry Chin, writing in 2009, asks: "Is the CIA behind Falun Gong"?

On the surface, and to uncritical eyes, practitioners of the practice of Falun Gong, a school of Chinese qi gong, are the innocent victims of horrific suppression by Beijing. In a situation parallel to the crackdowns in Tibet, it is also a fact that Falun Gong has been the recipient of years of vicious crackdowns and human rights atrocities across China.
But just as is the case with Tibet, there is more to the Falun Gong case than simple persecution. Outside political forces and corporate interests can be found pushing Falun Gong into increasingly political activities, including well-funded, well-organized, and ubiquitous worldwide protests against the Chinese Communist Party.
Among the foreign (predominantly Western) Friends of Falun Gong, we find the likes of Mark Palmer of Freedom House. Freedom House is a quasi-intelligence front created by the CIA-connected Open Society Institute of elite George Soros. In addition to Palmer, Freedom House has counted among its top management the former CIA Director James Woolsey, neocons Bernie Aronson and Diana Negroponte, super elite Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Clinton National Security Advisor Anthony Lake, Clinton Commerce Secretary Stuart Eizenstat, and the late Congressman Tom Lantos and his wife.
Freedom House is backed by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), which former CIA agent Philip Agee, and many others have amply documented, is a US intelligence apparatus that has been a driving force behind opposition forces (“democracy revolutions”) in many countries.
[....]
For legitimate reasons, Beijing clearly suspects US and CIA involvement behind Falun Gong. Denunciations of human rights offenses committed against Falun Gong, however legitimate, are one-sided if they do not also take into account the funding and co-opting of the group by outside political forces.

Good work. This certainly explains her tilt on matters, and knowing this only adds support for our building hypothesis. And yes, you're probably right that bureaucratic inertia was at work regarding a need to prepare for the worst case.

The nexus of Steve Bannon to this, whom I consider to be the empire's undercover Apostle Paul, checks off yet another box.

Which leads to the question of the imagery provided by the Chinese soldiers wearing the UN helmets was about. BTW, the supposed first case goes back well into November.

Meanwhile, even after Agent Orange has declared a national emergency, Faux News is allowing such as Jerry Falwell Jr. to come on and claim that this is all a continuation of the attacks on Agent Orange. Supposedly, Faux News issued a memo prior to legally distance themselves in case anybody decides to sue them over some relative that ends up dying as a consequence of such statements.
