Many thanks for the updates on news. I had missed some of these things.
I have great sympathy with the woman bashing a robot. Sometimes I feel that humans can be as stupid as robots and there have been many examples of that in the so-called COVID crisis.
As regards the W.H.O. on the laboratory in the Sudan this is more scare tactics as despite what we have been indoctrinated with over the years, there are no such things as infectious diseases although there are plenty of poisons which cause the various symptoms labelled as individual diseases.
Although this does not deal directly with the issue, it lays the foundation as to why we have been fooled by Satan and his minions over the decades.
