Colin Powell dead at 84 from COVID

Fully vaccinated. A serious blow to mandates.

A great man. Should have been our first black president.

That's sad news.

As far as it's effect on mandates: I predict nothing. They'll spin it. Blow it off. Don't forget Biden did tell Americans that vaxxed people cannot infect others.

The CDC reported this morning that adults are 11x more likely to die of COVID if they are unvaccinated compared to being vaccinated.

So don't let Powell's death shake your faith in our savior vaccines.

Also don't forget that the "great" Colin Powell got up before the UN and told the world that Iraq harbored weapons of mass destruction.

The left didn't like that (WMD in Iraq lie)...but because ol' Colin was an anti-Trumper, they conveniently forget this point today.

I blame DICK Cheney more than anyone else on the WMD issue. He saw an avenue for his private security company to become the logistics center in Iraq. It worked.

Colin was a great man. That doesn't mean he didn't let his establishment roots take him into blind alleys at times on things like Trump. At this point, only a fool would still cling to the "Trump is a BAD man" schtick. Biden is waay worse in every way, but because he is establishment, he's better than Trump.

Just sayin'...don't let his death obscure the fact that the left used to absolutely hate not only Powell, but George W. Bush AND anyone named CHENEY (this includes Liz)...

But, if you (like the above) want to rehabilitate your image and genuflect before our "dear hard-left leaders" these days, all you have to do is spit on a picture of Trump and you're suddenly GOLDEN.

All past "sins", no matter what, will be forgiven.

Not much is being said about the fact that Powell had multiple Myloma, a blood cancer that comprises the bodyís ability to fight infection. Also, many cancer treatments have the effect of inhibiting the ability to produce antibodies.

If you havenít figured it out, this basically means the vaccine is neutralized. A friend of mine is in a similar situation. He has Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia. The treatments have left him severely Immunocompromised. He got both shots of the Pfizer vaccine, but when tested for the antibodies, there were none. The same thing happened with Moderna.

The very good news is he is now in remission and building antibodies. The plan is to get a third set of vaccines at an appropriate time.

Back to Powell. Do not say he died from Cancer. He had cancer. He died from Covid.

Wrong again. I never hated Powell. I was critical that he was manipulated by Cheney and Rumsfeld, but overall his public career was exemplary. In fact, I think itís the right that turned on him because he told the truth about Trump.

While Powell did one thing wrong-WMD in Iraq, and most everything else correctly; Lis Cheney did one thing right-voting to impeach Trump and everything else wrong.

That wouldnít be true even if Powell didnít have cancer. It has been said billions of times that the vaccines are effective 95% plus of the time. Powell, unfortunately, was one of the 5%.

Maybe they better start doing blood tests before the jab. To see if you're safe.

You should get up to speed on what the toxic jabs do to anyone who has cancer! Powell would likely still be alive if he hadn't taken the jabs.

Multiple myeloma ( a death sentence when diagnosed) as it is essentially PLASMA CELL cancer.

https://www.cancer.org/cancer/multip...e-myeloma.html

quote: Multiple myeloma is a cancer of plasma cells. Normal plasma cells are found in the bone marrow and are an important part of the immune system. The immune system is made up of several types of cells that work together to fight infections and other diseases. Lymphocytes (lymph cells) are one of the main types of white blood cells in the immune system and include T cells and B cells. Lymphocytes are in many areas of the body, such as lymph nodes, the bone marrow, the intestines, and the bloodstream.

When B cells respond to an infection, they mature and change into plasma cells. Plasma cells make the antibodies (also called immunoglobulins) that help the body attack and kill germs. Plasma cells, are found mainly in the bone marrow. Bone marrow is the soft tissue inside bones. In addition to plasma cells, normal bone marrow is also the home for other blood cells such as red cells, white cells, and platelets.

ineffective immune system, one cannot ward off infections nor make adequate strength of antibodies. Plasma cells are differentiated B-lymphocyte white blood cells capable of secreting immunoglobulin, or antibody. These cells play a significant role in the adaptive immune response, namely, being the main cells responsible for humoral immunity

I have NEVER known any patient diagnosed with this condition survive it long as two family members passed as a result. NO functional plasma cells (only dysplastic ones) dooms one to infections of all kinds. Not surprising an infectious disease would be this fine fellows cause of death.

in a nutshell; https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/18/u...d-myeloma.html

Rest in Peace, Colin. It would be nice if the Colin Powell's of the world were looked up to by most of the black community, but they aren't.
