Colin Powell Dies of Covid Complications

colinpowell.jfif

He was fully vaccinated, but was also living with a blood cancer called multiple myeloma, in which the cancer infects the white blood cells. Those of course are critical in fighting infection.

I earlier noted that NeverTrumpers are cultists for George W. Bush and his administration.

Here's AllahPundit spreading cult doctrine about Colin Powell:

In a slightly different timeline, Powell runs for president as a Republican in 1996 and becomes the first black major-party nominee. Maybe even the first black president.

His legacy still includes important "firsts" -- the first black chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the first black Secretary of State. He'll be remembered today by the professional commentariat as a distinguished soldier and statesman and by the online commentariat on both sides as something of a villain. The left won't forgive him for selling the Iraq war to the United Nations based on bad intelligence, the right won't forgive him for having supported Democrats like Barack Obama in his later years as the GOP turned more populist.

Powell endorsed Obama over McCain in 2008 and then endorsed Obama over Romney in 2012.

Were McCain and Romney "populists," Liberal New Yorker?

Or are you now retroactively applying current cult doctrine to decades past?

Colin Powell will not be endorsing any more Democrats.

He will, of course, continue voting for them.

20 At the age of 84 with Parkinson's disease and cancer, Powell was already standing upon the precipice of death. All COVID did was give him a tap on the shoulder.

I won't forgive him for supporting Democrats, and McCain, yes, that's true.

Did he support Herman Cain? Herman was a black man, but strangely light-skinned Powell didn't get behind him. Could he have been a racist against dark-skinned black men?

Maybe!

36 Dennis Prager was away from his radio program the last three days of last week (I wondered if he'd tested positive for the virus) -- and he's back broadcasting today from his home, quarantining because he did test positive.

He's been taking HCQ/zinc and Ivermectin as a therapeutic for months, has not been vaccinated, and credited the therapeutics with him having minor symptoms and being nearly 100% fully recovered.

51 I'm not interested in slagging Colin Powell. I will note, though, that he lived well beyond the average black male life expectancy of 69. In fact, he lived well beyond the average male life expectancy of whites, but not that of Hispanics and Asians. I suppose one could say that the latter two are genetically very similar.

The two people I know that have died of Covid, were on deaths door. One was on a ventilator for a week before becoming covid positive and then death. Even with perfect hindsight, I do not know what we should have done about Covid. I guess I would argue for just keeping everything normal, no masks etc. No 2 weeks to blah blah blah.
But for sure paying hospitals for quote unquote covid deaths. That was a rookie error. We all know that paying someone money for X increases that X.

62 I still remember we had a 9th ID parade field formation at Ft.Lewis when Powell was chairman of joint chief of staff and all the other brass were on stage. We had some kind of re-affirmation of being in the Army or some such. It's a pain in the ass to have the whole division show up in one place. This takes hours, because every unit wants their people in place 1/2 hour before the successor unit. So a 9 AM division start means specialist 4 snuffy has to show up about 2 and a half hours early maybe. So Powell I think or somebody said over the PA at the re- swearing in ceremony "Everybody repeat after me "I (state your name) .... solemnly swear etc.

And several thousand people unison said "I State Your Name..." which I thought was hilarious at the time.

OK, ya had to be there I guess. That's my brush with fame. Seeing Colin Powell on the dais far enough away that binoculars would be good.

78 He did pull three people from a burning helicopter, and appeared to be a decent family man. So, RIP.

Mostly, my disgust with him centered around his philosophy, particularly his Powell Doctrine. He felt we have some sort of an obligation to stay around after an invasion, and turn a country into -if not the US- at least Canada or Belgium. "If you break it, you buy it," he famously said.

The stupid part of that is, we only invaded a country that was already broken. Afghanistan in 2001 was irretrievably broken. Iraq a couple years later was the same. We didn't break them, so why would we have to buy them. Let's focus our military on military objectives, like killing bad people, and removing their leaders from office (and Earth, for that matter). Then we leave. Had we done that in Afghanistan and Iraq, we'd have saved a lot of lives, time, and money.

The Barnes and Noble hit had more reporters and cameramen jostling for position than anything I could remember up until then.

Well, in the grand scheme of things, all I will say is, he did more harm to this world than good and I hope he finds his reward in the afterlife.

Rest In Relative Peace, Colin Powell.

104 "He was a liberal who thought styling himself a 'republican' was necessary for a military career."

Well I think he was under tremendous pressure to be a Democrat. Politically speaking. And I expect he had a little bit of the old school non-partisan gene. Think of just how "perfect" the Democrat strategerists were salivating over this guy.

I also recall Mrs. Clinton tried the "Let he who has never had unsecured computer servers in their bathroom conducting official State business throw the first stone" on Powell and he wasn't having any if it. I think that probably ticked him off. She was trying to claim that this kind of thing was routine.

That's pretty much how it works. Just saw on local bay area news there's going to be a walkout of parents/kids/teachers today. Of course, the news had "both sides of the story" by showing the flyer being sent out and then interviewing parents who think it's yet another "vaccine". Or the one lady who said her kid was immuno compromised, so would definitely be getting the jab. Poor kid doesn't stand a chance. Of course, KTVU didn't ask Newsom why he's not letting his 12 year old daughter get the jab.

- Remove the phony COVID restrictions and mandates (the number were already going down, so take credit for the trend)

So, which symptom did he pass away from? Lung issues? A cytokine storm?

Or a side effect of the booster shots?

Was the booster of any use if he had multiple myeloma? More harm than good in his state? Especially if the booster is a therapeutic rather than an actual vaccine?

If the latter is true, then the shot did social damage if Colin changed how he protected himself; say, by going to large gatherings without a mask in enclosed spaced. Would be nice if someone did their actual job and did contact tracing on him.

From Healthline.com The terms "broth" and "stock" are often used interchangeably. ... Stock is made from bones, while broth is made mostly from meat or vegetables. Using bones in stock creates a thicker liquid, while broth tends to be thinner and more flavorful.


Here are a few examples. The first one is for rib bones.

via PJ Media --

So on Thursday, when a FDA panel unanimously approved Moderna's COVID booster to people ages 65 and older, we had reason to believe the panel had tremendous faith in the booster. A unanimous vote sure sounds like a glowing endorsement, doesn't it? Well... it really wasn't.

After the vote, Dr. Patrick Moore of the University of Pittsburgh, one of the members of the committee, said that the data Moderna submitted for review "was not well explained" and that he voted yes based on a "gut feeling."

It would appear the fully vaxxed can carry a big load of virus, and not show symptoms, so they become virtual "Covid Mary's".

Those of us who are unvaxxed will show symptoms if we get infected, and then likely will self-isolate. If we are symptom-free, and out and about, then we aren't a threat to the vaxxed.

My God-son was headed to Ft Huachuca with a buddy of his after leave. they came across a wrecked car with a mother and baby inside. They freed both and took them to the nearest town and doctor. After giving a statement to the police, they continued their journey. I heard about it and sent their commander a letter recommending some kind of recognition.

I get the feeling that they've tried to declare victory more than once. When the CDC announced a few months ago that PCR tests were effectively worthless (right about the time that Disney was complaining about the same thing regarding its ability to start their cruise ships again), I thought it was a signal to everyone to stop reporting on cases.

And yet, case counts came back en vogue very soon thereafter.

I don't think the Biden administration is in control of the narrative at all. They can't get the left to give up on the covid panic porn, and they are as powerless to influence the overall narrative as Trump's administration was.

Brilliant.

It's one thing for them to determine how much leaves their shores, but to also let them determine how quickly it enters ours once the ships reach the coastline is ludicrious.

Put on a tinfoil hat for a moment...how hard is it to imagine that some of these loitering cargo ships might have counterintel packed onboard? If they realized they had an opportunity to effectively park a couple intelligence-gathering assets right off the coast for months at a time without a single red flag (...so to speak...), do you think they'd pass on that opportunity?

Do you think they'd ponder it and then say, "naw man that's just too sleazy, we have morals and standards?"

Like most liberal tenets, their aims contradict each other. They want to promote that they've done what Trump couldn't do -- beat Covid -- while at the same time continuing to push Covid-related necessities relevant to their interests -- mail-in voting, vaccine mandates, appeasing teacher's unions, etc.

Basically, they want you to live in fear while convincing you everything is now great (as long as you do as they say).

I expect we will see some numbers of sick people by January 2022 that will not be pleasant to contemplate. And they will be going up and even the media won't be able to hide them.

They'll all have something to do with the failure of people's immune system.

Me I'm hoping they don't make the medicare patients mandatory for the vaxx and let me continue to self quarantine (actually I'm quarantining all of YOU but my house is too small so I'll stay inside). Something like 50% of bad outcomes for those on medicare. We're not a healthy cohort.

391 Our immune systems don't just fight off bacterial or viral infections. They also combat mutated cells and keep the highways and byways of your circulatory system clean and free of debris.

When the immune system efficiency goes down, it's ability to fight off some of the other bad stuff goes down accordingly and if there is an ongoing viral bacterial threat it will prioritize fighting that and not the ongoing cancer or mutating cells.

This is what many drs. suspect is the reason for some of the drastic rise of out of the ordinary cancers and infections. Just like when someone gets AIDS.

They spent huge sums of money outfitting troops with NBC gear and a ton of time while preparing the defense of Baghdad on distributing that equipment in preparation for an apparent NBC use.

I agree. I've said before that the Iraq invasion in 2003 was inevitable. At some point we were going to have to deal with Iraq. If not 2003, then sometime down the line. Worst case scenario is that Saddam dies, the country fractures, and we get sucked into a regional shooting war between various faction. Or, one of his sons quickly takes over and we spend another twenty or thirty years trying to maintain the embargos and no-fly zones, which were already quickly becoming political millstones by 2000.

Also, occasionally we *would* discover a cache of chemical weapons or sarin or the like.

While not earth-shattering, these *are* by definition weapons of mass-destruction. You can wreak a LOT of havoc with these.

469 Powell always struck me as a somewhat irascible fellow who had little patience with views that differed from his own. I'd be interested in knowing what other high-level brass hats really thought of him (I mean, of course, his contemporaries; I have no interest in what today's high command thinks of anything).

The common thinking during Desert Shield/Storm was that Powell was Marshall, Schwartzkopf was Patton.

479 Saddam had to claim he had wmd. Or else the Kurds would've taken him apart.

He gassed a few thousand of them at one time and threatened to do more.

They had a real hard on for him.
Posted by: jakee308 at October 18, 2021 12:21 PM (H5Y9p)


Not just the Kurds. Everyone hated him, or feared him. There were plenty of Iraqi officers or politicians who would have jumped at the chance to remove him from power, not to mention Shia leaders, etc.

483 He was a liberal who thought styling himself a 'republican' was necessary for a military career.
Posted by: Aetius451AD

He was being "groomed" for higher command in the 1970's. He was a Whitehouse Fellow as a light Colonel, and I think he knew Rumsfeld and Cheney back then, as they were part of the Ford Administration.
All these people know each other. Nobody comes out of nowhere to rise to high office.

Not slagging on Powell, but I think he represents a LOT of 2-3-4 star flag officers from his era forward, in his attitudes and his opinions. They have weeded out a lot of officers in higher commands that have what we could call right-wing opinions. That's just the way it is.

A lot of it allegedly got hauled out of Iraq into the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon, where Syria controlled the country.

There were some Sarin loaded artillery shells found mixed into stores of regular 155mm shells.
There was also (allegedly) a war gas weapons bunker out in the Western Desert of Iraq, that was mentioned during the rise of ISIS. Apparently the stuff stored there was too unstable to move or handle. We had guys just watching it.

502 This was my understanding as well.

Also, occasionally we *would* discover a cache of chemical weapons or sarin or the like.

While not earth-shattering, these *are* by definition weapons of mass-destruction. You can wreak a LOT of havoc with these.

503 I agree. I've said before that the Iraq invasion in 2003 was inevitable. At some point we were going to have to deal with Iraq. If not 2003, then sometime down the line. Worst case scenario is that Saddam dies, the country fractures, and we get sucked into a regional shooting war between various faction. Or, one of his sons quickly takes over and we spend another twenty or thirty years trying to maintain the embargos and no-fly zones, which were already quickly becoming political millstones by 2000.


Concur. After the ceasefire, I spent a few hours over water and cigars with the senior G-2 Analysts and the CG discussing this very thing. I told them that even if our mission was just to free Kuwait, if we didn't finish Saddam, we'd be back to do so. Key point was we had the Army to defeat them, but there was no planning on what to do afterwards. Who would run the electricty in the cities? The water and sewer? Traffic control, mail, all the crap that it takes to run a community? We were not prepared for that.
