Please keep Senator Thune in your thoughts

As you might have heard by now, Senator John Thune has taken ill, and has returned to South Dakota. As noted on KELOland News:

One of the most powerful U.S. Senators woke up Wednesday morning “and didn’t feel well.” Sen. John Thune (R-SD) talked to two doctors and then took a charter flight to South Dakota wearing a mask “out of an abundance of caution,” according to a spokesperson. He also missed a key vote on a muti-trillion dollar aid package late Wednesday, one of several missed votes from Senators in isolation or quarantined due to COVID-19.

“I unfortunately had to miss today’s votes – something I’ve rarely done during my time in Congress,” Thune said in a statement late Wednesday.

  1. Does anyone else find it suspicious that the first household-name celebrity reported to have contracted COVID-19 was Tom Hanks, arguably the biggest household name celebrity in America?

    Does anyone else find it suspicious that the first household-name athlete reported to have contracted the virus was Rudy Gobert, the very NBA player who’d mocked the league’s COVID-19 “distancing” policy by lightheartedly dragging his fingertips along the microphone at the end of a media availability?

    Does anyone else find it suspicious that the reports of those two men contracting the virus came out at essentially the same time, triggering widespread shutdowns and panic?

    Does anyone else find it suspicious that the first U.S. senator reported to have contracted the virus was Rand Paul, the only senator to vote against the initial COVID-19 relief package, and a medical doctor, and a lifelong enemy of intel agency power grabs and abuses, whose father Ron Paul, also a medical doctor, had publicly argued that the COVID-19 panic could be a hoax?

    Does anyone else find it suspicious that only three South Dakotans over age 70 have tested positive for COVID-19, and they include (1) prominent Christian legislator Bob Glanzer, who’d initially expressed skepticism about the threat posed by the virus, and (2) his wife?

    Does anyone else find it suspicious that, eight days after she’d published a story about the bureau’s “garbage reputation” in December 2018, 26-year-old FBI critic and rising-star journalist Bre Payton contracted a mild case of the H1N1 flu virus from some unknown source and then dropped to the brink of death literally overnight before reporting any advanced symptoms? She died the following day. The doctors couldn’t explain how H1N1 supposedly caused the brain damage that killed her, but a massive social media campaign smeared her as an “anti-vaxxer” and blamed her for her own death.

    1. Remember that even today, with the outbreak well underway, only one in 5,000 people in the United States has tested positive for COVID-19. The virus appears to have chosen its first round of victims very carefully.

      1. Uh huh, and if those people go about their day they could give it to up to 3.5 people. And those people could give it to 3.5…and those people…

        1. COVID-19, like many other viruses, will spread much faster than that if Five Eyes intel agents spread it intentionally.

          So will a lie.

      2. In the name of His only begotten Son Jesus, may God honor Bob Glanzer, and John Thune, and the memory of Bre Payton.

            1. I know Bob Glanzer personally. He was a friend of my late father. He’s been hospitalized in critical condition. I’m not trolling.

              Payton’s family told Inside Edition that the exact details of her death from the H1N1 virus, better known as the swine flu, remain unclear: She had seemed fine while with loved ones for the holiday, and then somewhat unwell, and then she was dead.

              Payton grew nauseous the night after Christmas, according to her family, and her roommate found her unresponsive in her bedroom the following morning, Dec. 27.

              She never woke up — and died on Dec. 28.

              “Something occurred over that 12-hour period, between 9:30 at night and 9 o’clock in the morning. It didn’t seem like she was that sick,” dad George Payton told Inside Edition.

              “The doctor doesn’t actually know … what caused all of it,” he said, “and we may never know.”

              1. Libertarian Christian, your obsession with an account of how rapidly H1N1 killed someone in the prime of life, as though there was something unusual about it, is getting really weird. Contemporary accounts of the H1N1 1918 pandemic describe the same thing: people got sick very fast, and the age group with the highest mortality rate was 25-34. Second highest mortality rate was In the 15-24 group.
                H1N1 is particularly hard on healthy young adults, who succumb to the cytokine storm produced by their own immune systems. That’s why they need flu shots, and at the first sign of flu should be seen by a physician, tested, and started on Tamiflu.

                There’s no conspiracy here.

  2. Does anyone else find it suspicious that this world wide social isolating is an introverts dream come true?

    1. It’s a dream come true for the Five Eyes intel agencies, because they can intercept, record and archive our personal phone calls and internet communications.

      1. NEWS FLASH! It’s been happening for decades and I’m frankly pissed off the government hasn’t taken my great ideas and ran with them!!!!

        If they want to listen in on my boring conversations with myself, by all means they’re welcome to. They can see the boring websites I visit. They can see the hilarious TikToks, SnapChats, Facebook moments, Tweets, and Instagram posts I see as well. I do not care.

        If someone is that bored to watch a single, white male’s every single move in Sioux Falls, SD, I will pray that the Lord gives them some work to do. If the Lord so desires, I will find work for the poor soul to do.

        I only hope they make a direct deposit into my bank account(s). I got bills to pay and we’re in hard times.

  3. Does anybody else find it suspicious that the state with the highest ratio of cows per person is also the state with the fewest cases of Coronavirus?

    Yes, that’s us. as of this morning only the Virgin Islands has Fewer cases than we do. Guam and Puerto Rico have pulled ahead of us,

    Edward Jenner was suspicious of cows, and look what he did with that.

      1. Considering the amount of BS in the comments on this site, I’d say we’re all very, very immune in that case.
