I agree Andy.

I think of Dr. Niman as our "Canary" in the viral world.

Some might say he is "too alarmist", if there can be such a thing with millions of lives on the line.

He may be wrong every tilme he beats the drum, but once. He only needs to be right ONCE.

Justathought, you and I have both been here. My tin hat is really retired. I do have a year of food on hand, but I am not going back to "that" world. "That" said, from an intellectual point of view, I really like Niman's perspective counterpoised with MSM's interpretation of TPTB statements, etc.

I will say one thing for sure: If something is GOING to happen, we will see it on Drudge, here, and/or on Recombinomics.

He's not a canary. More like your neighbor's hair trigger car alarm that goes off every time a truck rumbles by on the street.

Niman is no longer relevant. There are plenty of other resources online such as Flutrackers and Promed which we can access to form our own well-informed opinions. Niman has no more access to this information than we do. He has gotten to the point where is so eager to be right that he has lost touch with reality. I don't even read his postings anymore - complete waste of time.
