40,000 American Children Have Lost a Parent to COVID-19


Health Editor’s Note: COVID-19 has taken a devastating toll on the world and continues to do so as we strive to vaccinate against it. The longer the virus is allowed to spread, the more variants will crop up as the virus continues to mutate. The longer the virus is spreading the more time and opportunity it has to mutate and time is on COVID-19’s side…..Carol

  1. Enough with this false and pernicious covid narrative already! You’re the ones killing people by promoting the lies and the killer “vaccine” which is not even a vaccine. It’s the biggest scam since Darwinist evolution of molecules to microbes to man evolution over billions of years by blind, natural processes, which you also promote. See Plandemic Series and also Dr Sherri Tenpenny on Bitchute (banned on youtube, like so many other truth tellers whom the Oligarchs want silenced).
