Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 18, 2021

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, the first African American to serve in the post, died on Monday at the age of 84 due to complications from COVID-19, his family announced in a statement. The family said the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had been fully vaccinated and was receiving treatment at Walter Reed National Medical Center.

Too soon. Complicated legacy for a loyal US servant and military leader, forever tied to a catastrophic indefensible decision still reverberating almost 20 years later.

Rest in peace Colin.

He tried to make amends for that disgraceful UN appearance. Couldn't erase it, but he made the effort. That and the a common sense Powell Doctrine form a legacy.

He appeared to be a decent man but, even though I do try, I can't forgive any of the cabal that caused the Iraq Invasion. When I heard the news of his death this morning I tried to think politive thoughts about his life and there is some of his life that was admirable but the stain of Iraq still overwhelms my memories of him.

I wonder if Powell had snorted some of what was in that vial of "white powder" that got everyone so scared?
He had only just separated from the military when he joined the Bushturd's excellent adventure into catastrophe.

10 years ago I was at an event and heard him speak. I stood a dozen feet from him at that event. My resentment towards him softened a bit. He was just a man. Even though he was among the top ---------- he was first and foremost a soldier who followed orders. It was his first real ambition. It was what he felt called to do.

Too bad his gift for focused destruction was squandered on lies, oligarchies, and for the comfort of men who never had the nuggets to risk what he was willing to risk.

He was a bit of an Othello... for a while elbowing with the big boys until they turned him out to do the dirty work. Fact is, to them Colin was wonderful but you wouldn't want your daughter to marry one much less put one in the White House.

That's why he started "hanging with the libruls"

Powell Had Cancer That Harms Body's Ability To Fight Infections

While the anti-vaccine mob is already pouncing on the fact that Powell had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before his death, it's important to remember this: he had multiple myeloma, a blood cancer that impairs the body's ability to fight infections.

talkingpointsmemo.com

That's why the original title was - 'Colin Powell Dead at 84 from COVID-19 Complications'. Cancer-fighting medications quickly erode the protective effects of the COVID vaccines.

If Colin Powell died @$$up on a ventilator or his kidneys dissolved then it stands to reason he died of Covid related complications regardless of the predisposing whatever that left him vulnerable. That's how it rolls.

The DR Cl0wn brigade thinks akin to the Trumptidumpian ideal of "because we test more than anyone we have more cases and if we stopped testing we would have fewer cases". Otherwise, he would've just died from cancer or whatever.

As always the redfaced adjustment to killing yet another black top-tier conservative with self-centered carelessness is difficult for the clown brigade... They just don't play well with their new toys... lots of boohoos about unfairness are to ensue.

His immune system was shot from chemo:

" The question is valid. If Obama thought sea levels would rise, as the left as said, and are alarmists about, why would he buy a home so close to disaster?"

Maybe the dire possibilities are a two-foot rise, so they got a place ten feet above sea level.

You're behind on your talking points moron.

"Climate change is a hoax" is so 30 years ago.
That became "maybe it's not a hoax but it's not man made".
That became "maybe it's manmade but we can't stop it".
That became "maybe we can stop it but it's too expensive to try".
That became "maybe we could afford to stop it, but should we? Maybe climate change is a good thing!"

Try to keep up with your fascist cult's latest lies please.

Actually, they probably havent. The only thing that's improved is our ability to report things that arent happening in our locality. Liberal news sources are reporting things as if they are local and we get those "reports" more often now, so stupid liberals act like these world events are local and they are not.

On January 21, 1991, the US bombed the only factory that produced baby formula in all of Iraq. Shortly after, Colin Powell dismissed the attack: "It is not an infant formula factory ... It was a biological weapons facility, of that we are sure."

We are able to measure global temperatures, and we have consistent models to predict the results of increased greenhouse gases, average temperature increases, etc.

Even the US Military is paying attention to the climate crisis, and it is a crisis.

If you think it's all a bunch of "librul hysterics," invest in oceanfront property in South Beach, or a bunch of cabins in California. Found a business that relies on coral reefs, even. 2/3s of Australia burned not long ago, and Greece just recently had devastating wildfires...many of the more volatile climate events we are witnessing are the result of global warming, predictably.

The sheer amount of ignorant and just plain stupid people we are forced to live among is overwhelming...I don't tend to be too optimistic about our chances as a species, given that roughly 30% of the US population is deeply ingrained in a death cult.

Colin Powell died of Covid-related complications.
He was vaccinated.
We know that breakthrough cases are especially of concern for people who have compromised immune systems.
Colin Powell had a compromised immune system.
The effects of his viral Covid infection led to his death.

His exposure to Covid was caused by an unvaccinated person. Likely a person who did not wear a mask. It could have happened by that unvaccinated person coming in contact with someone he knew, but there is no denying that Covid continues to spread due to the unvaccinated among us, and it will not stop. That's a scientific fact, but the death cult doesn't believe in science until they need it to stay alive...

Covid is transmitted from an infected person to another person. That second person could potentially be vaccinated, and in turn, could pass on the Covid infection to someone else, but you don't spontaneously get Covid. An infected, unvaccinated person, somewhere down the line, gave Covid to someone else who eventually infected Colin Powell.

You're projecting your insular nature on us. Sometimes it's like you live in your own little treehouse. Especially for someone as well-traveled as you are.

Your rationale is akin to the assuming that reason we have so many covid cases is that we test more than anyone because after all, the number actually dying is meaningless.

I know I am concerned that climate change is a worldwide phenomenon occurring everywhere including here. I lived in Alaska for 14 years and when first I moved there you could see 5 glaciers standing on the roof of my two-story home. By the time I left 3 of them had receded out of sight. There was also running water at the north pole for the first time in recorded history.
