New study finds vaccine risk for heart issues

Gateway PunditA new study released on Tuesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) revealed the development of myocarditis and pericarditis after mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccination which is highest in adolescent males and young men.

The study was based on the data from VAERS on reported cases of myocarditis that occurred after receiving the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine between December 2020 and August 2021 in 192,405,448 individuals older than 12 years of age in the US. These data were processed by VAERS as of September 30, 2021.

Here's the paper. It concludes the risk of myocarditis was increased after vaccination across multiple age and sex categories, and was highest following the second vaccine dose.

The absolute numbers are small compared to the number of people vaccinated, however VAERS is a data source that is known to undercount adverse vaccine events in general and perhaps even more so in the current context.

FDA revokes EUA for monoclonal antibody COVID treatment

Conservative TreehouseThis is some next level sketchy, borderline evil, stuff from the U.S. medical establishment. The FDA has revoked the authorization status of monoclonal antibody treatments [Announcement Here], effectively shutting down the treatment option for patients exposed to COVID-19.

The FDA gave no advanced notice of their arbitrary decision; they just issued a press release Monday evening and immediately revoked the Emergency Use Authorization.

They are revoking authorization for one of the only treatments that has proven safe and effective (albeit with limited effectiveness against omicron). Why? Solely to have a political impact, punishing states that prefer to treat COVID patients rather than putting them on ventilators to die? Maybe. Or maybe there are real health concerns.

I can easily believe it's both.

From the same people who brought you COVID-19...

National PulseAfter being involved with China in the research and development of the China coronavirus, Ecohealth Alliance is provided another grant under Biden’s Administration.

Apparently the Biden admin is still funding them.

That's colossally stupid.

What's even more colossally stupid is the shipment of infected African monkeys presumably being used for disease research that escaped following a crash. One person who came into contact with the monkeys is developing disease symptoms.

I'm just going to go ahead and call this the midterm variant.

Manipulating COVID statistics

Gateway PunditIn yet another absolute bombshell revelation the government of Alberta, Canada exposed itself this week when it accidentally published damning evidence that exposes how the public health authorities have been manipulating the Covid-19 statistics.

After seemingly realizing what it had just done, the corrupt Canadian province quickly scrambled to delete the incriminating data off their website, but, thanks to internet sleuths like Twitter user Metatron – and his substack post, we have the receipts.

This sort of thing has been going on since the beginning of COVID.

Republican speaker of Wisconsin House backing drop boxes for ballots?

Gateway PunditRepublican Speaker Vos is not a friend to the people of Wisconsin or the people of America. After the Democrats stole the 2020 election in the state of Wisconsin, Vox vowed to get to the bottom of it. But he never did. He said this over and over, but he never did a thing. He finally appointed a retired judge to look into the election but it was too little, too late. That investigation by Judge Gableman is still ongoing and time is running out. We previously reported that Vos was good friends with former US Speaker Paul Ryan, who despised President Trump.

In December 2020 we uncovered that Speaker Vos was behind the use of drop boxes in Wisconsin – a favorite vehicle of the left for stealing elections. Hillary’s attorney Marc Elias in a case against the legality of drop boxes used in Wisconsin in the 2020 Election provided documentation showing Speaker Vos ‘wholeheartedly supported the use of drop boxes’ to justify the use of drop boxes in the election. This was an action that must go through the legislature, but Vos supported their use in the state without having the authority to do so.*

Last week we found out that Vos not only promoted drop boxes in Wisconsin, he also was part of a group that promoted them throughout the country.

This would explain a lot.

Justice Breyer to retire

Gateway Pundit83-year-old Justice Stephen Breyer will retire from the US Supreme Court at the end of the current term after 27 years on the bench.

Breyer, who was nominated by former President Bill Clinton, is currently one of the three liberal justices serving on the highest court of the land.

Breyer’s retirement while the Democrats control the Senate will allow Joe Biden to appoint a far-left justice to replace him.

This won't change the balance of the court, but it will likely preserve one of the three solidly left-wing seats as a left-wing seat. Breyer and/or the left generally are clearly reacting to Breyer's age and the risk that they may lose the Senate in 2022 and then face another situation where McConnell could hold the seat open for a Republican president in 2024.

With a 51-50 Senate the Dems will probably get this through. There may well be fireworks, especially after Kavanaugh and if Biden nominates someone from the far left. Which he almost certainly will.

Misplacing the bounds of distrust

Astral CodexI believe that in some sense, the academic establishment will work to cover up facts that go against their political leanings. But the experts in the field won't lie directly. They don't go on TV and say "The science has spoken, and there is strong evidence that immigrants in Sweden don't commit more violent crime than natives". They don't talk about the "strong scientific consensus against immigrant criminality". They'll try to punish people who bring this up, but they won't call them "science deniers".

The author's reasoning is interesting, but flawed, in that he believes he can gain useful information based on what he believes the "rules of the game" are in mediaworld. His understanding works just fine for his primary example -- ie, even a liberal who distrusts Fox News will probably trust Fox News if they are reporting on a police shooting or a terrorist attack, because Fox News doesn't lie directly; they may bias their reports differently than other media, or report on things other sources ignore, but they know their credibility would be shot if they actually, deliberately lied and got caught, so they instead report on real things and (sometimes) put a different spin on it. Liberals get outraged about that being lying, but they know it really isn't; and so they trust Fox on facts while disregarding spin.

Fair enough.

The counterexample is a different matter. The rest of the media have a long history of actually lying and faking news. Whether it's using a pyrokinetic device to blow up a Pinto, or Dan Rather reporting on a fake memo to influence a presidential election, climate scientists faking research or adjusting data, or basically the entire mainstream media reporting on a made-up story about Donald Trump to influence another election and destroy a presidency... the left-leaning components of the media have repeatedly demonstrated that they will in fact lie outright to advance their political agenda.

The other hole in that line of reasoning is that it leads to false conclusions about what is reasonable to believe under circumstances where the writers (of both news articles and scientific papers) believe something is true when it is in fact false. (Both examples below are those used by the original author).

No one is really willing to sign letters or petitions claiming Muslim immigrants to Sweden do not commit more crimes than native Swedes. This reluctance is because such a claim is transparently false and the scientists would be both ashamed of themselves and ridiculed for making a transparently false and easily disprovable claim. (Instead, orthodoxy is maintained by preventing anyone saying what is obviously true).

In the case of climate change, however, the situation is different. The proponents of climate change mostly believe it to be true. They are convinced not by good science but by an exercise in faith, self-persuading scientific pursuits, and a self-reinforcing financial research structure. Every scientist looking for funding knows that to get funding you must frame your research to invoke climate change; and if you then find there is no climate change, you will not get any more funding, and moreover, climatologists will work to exclude you from publishing in any and all scientific journals with a fervor previously reserved for burning heretics at the stake.

My algorithm for finding truth in a media-hostile world works thusly: What you are forbidden to say is likely the uncomfortable truth.

AZ election audit update

Gateway PunditArizona Senate President Karen Fann Gives Exclusive Update On Maricopa County Router Audit – AZ Attorney General Has Pulled Numerous People For Questioning

Worth watching, even though there's not really much news. Basically, the router investigation is still struggling to find the three acceptable auditors, but may now have all three names and thus hopefully start actual work soon. And, the AZ AG is actually interviewing people in his investigation.

The lack of updates from the AG on an active investigation is annoying, but probably normal; good investigations don't leak. Of course, that sometimes makes it hard to tell the difference between a good investigation and no investigation, which is why people are nervous. However, at least some individuals are being interviewed.

One thing that puzzles me is that the AG has apparently interviewed state legislators. How exactly is that related to conducting a voter fraud investigation? But also "other officials", which could be anyone.

The AG has also separately taken action to block the AZ SecState from using an election rule book that was wide open to fraud, an action that seems unusual and significant to me.

Pivot to amnesty?

Gateway PunditKamala Harris this weekend told reporters that one of her “expectations” this year is mass amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.

A record number of illegal aliens crossed over the US border from Mexico in 2021.

Advertisement - story continues below

Border Patrol agents encountered nearly 2 million illegals last year thanks to Joe Biden’s immigration policies.

Kamala Harris is pushing for mass amnesty in order to permanently entrench the Democrat party.

This sounds like one of those "expections" that you have for your subordinates, rather than an "expectation" like a prediction. I don't know if the two Dem holdouts will be any more or less amenable to this than the other thinly disguised steal all elections forever legislation, but Sinema is a Senator from a border state.

Medical journal calls for immediate release of all vaccine data

Life Site NewsOne of the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journals has issued an urgent call for the full release of all data regarding the COVID-19 injections and other treatments, arguing that keeping crucial information hidden from the public is “morally indefensible.”

In a comprehensive editorial published January 19 by senior editor Peter Doshi, editor in chief Kamran Abbasi, and former editor in chief Fiona Godlee, The British Medical Journal (BMJ) asserted that clinical trial data used to approve COVID-19 drugs “should be fully and immediately available for public scrutiny.”

The data from drug and vaccine trials should always be made public immediately, as soon as the drug is approved for any use including emergency use. People need to be able to make informed choices about their healthcare, which demands public data and public analysis.

Mass protest from truckers over vaxxine mandate at Canadian border

Conservative TreehouseA massive convoy of truckers is headed toward Ottawa, Canada, to protest the vaccination regulations of the Trudeau administration against Truckers and all Canadian citizens. The scale of the Freedom Convoy has now garnered the attention of the ruling class, and it looks like a predictable conflict is looming.

Supporters of the trucker protest have raised over $1.8 million using a GoFundMe Effort to cover the expenses, fuel and lost income of the drivers. However, do not be surprised if the Canadian government does not use law enforcement to try and stop their arrival. The regime will not want to face pressure of the scale that is being assembled through a grass-roots movement.

Recent video shows how many truckers have joined the convoy that now stretches for miles.

If you're wondering why the supply chain issues seem to be getting worse...

Triple-vaxxed have higher rates of Omicron than unvaxxed

Gateway PunditThe latest official health data from the British government revealed that triple vaccinated individuals once again accounted for the majority of all Covid-19 hospitalizations between December 20th and January 16th, with the double vaccinated – formerly known as the fully vaxxed – not far behind.

Unsurprisingly, even with the highly-infectious and common-cold-like Omicron variant being the dominant strain, the unvaccinated have maintained a steady rate of infection.

This suggests that, long term, the vax actually hurts rather than helps.

Competing narratives

Real Clear InvestigationsAs he documents the role of Hillary Clinton’s campaign in generating false allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, Special Counsel John Durham has also previewed a challenge to the FBI’s claims about how and why its counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign began. At stake is the completeness of the official reckoning within the U.S. government over the Russiagate scandal – and whether there will be an accounting commensurate with the offense: the abuse of the nation's highest law enforcement and intelligence powers to damage an opposition presidential candidate turned president, at the behest of his opponent from the governing party he defeated.

No more excitement without more indictments... but at least Durham is still investigating and occasionally we get some journalists summarizing things and reminding us that Durham exists.

More evidence of election problems in GA

Gateway PunditAccording to Garland at least 100,000 Georgia ballots lack the adequate chain of custody documents from the 2020 election. The number is likely much larger than this. Garland Favorito told The Gateway Pundit his investigation corroborates the True the Vote ballot box fraud investigation in the state of Georgia. Garland told us they still have no idea how many ballots came from drop boxes in 202o. That number has not been provided by the state! This is absolutely shocking that that number was never released.

This morning during the press conference Garland Favorito spoke out against the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

Garland Favorito: “This is a systematic coverup by the Secretary of State. He’s been doing this ever since the election… So ‘yes’ there is a coverup in the state of Georgia and ‘yes’ the Secretary of State is behind it.”

We're rapidly running out of time to get these problems fixed before the midterms, which was probably behind the delay strategy all along.

FBI raids Dem Rep critical of Biden border policy

Democrat Representative Henry Cuellar represents Texas’ 28th Congressional District, which extends to the U.S.- Mexico border, has been in Congress since 2005. Cuellar has been very public and very critical of how Joe Biden has collapsed the U.S-Mexico border enforcement. Suddenly, Cuellar becomes the target of the FBI.

I'm not quite ready to call this a political prosecution, but in my view the burden of proof is now on the FBI to explain itself and demonstrate that this isn't just political. Because it sure does look political.

Peer-reviewed study shows positive evidence for Ivermectin

American GreatnessA newly released study from Brazil of over 150 thousand subjects found that regular prophylactic use of ivermectin “was associated with significantly reduced COVID-19 infection, hospitalization, and mortality rates.”

The largest ivermectin study to date was conducted in Itajaí, Brazil, between July 2020 and December 2020. It recently passed rigorous peer-review and was published this week, Dr. Pierre Kory noted on Twitter.

So here's the thing. Ivermectin is safe for use in humans; not perfectly, no, but safe enough for over the counter use in many places outside the US. There is strong but not conclusive evidence that ivermectin provides significant benefits to COVID-19 patients, especially when given early. Much of the evidence is anecdotal, but much consists of a variety of studies usually done outside the US.

Many studies done inside the US on another popular potential treatment, hydroxychloroquin, were designed in ways that appeared to deliberately ignore the recommendations from earlier successful trials, particularly that of early treatment and use in combination with other drugs. Some were outright fraudulent. I rather wonder if some of the failed US studies of Ivermectin are similarly sabotaged.

Bottom line: it doesn't hurt and it may help. It's cheap and plentiful. Keep studying it -- but why not try it, too, at least with willing patients?

A majority of Democrats are fascists

Conservative TreehouseForty-five percent (45%) of Democrats favor the government forcing unvaccinated people into federal quarantine camps if they refuse the COVID-19 vaccine.

Nearly half (48%) of Democrat voters think federal and state governments should be able to fine or imprison individuals who publicly question the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications.

47% of Democrats favor a government tracking system, ankle monitors or locked collars, for those who won’t get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Democratic voters support forcibly removing children from the custody of unvaccinated parents.

55% of Democratic voters support fines and financial punishment for the unvaccinated.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Democrats favor government requiring unvaccinated citizens to remain confined to their homes.

I really don't have a better word for people who want to do the above.

Texas court rules TX AG cannot prosecute election fraud

UncoverDCThe Republican majority Court of Criminal Appeals (CCA) in Texas issued a stunning decision in December that strikes down Chapter 273 of the election code in a 1951 statute. Section 273.021 allows the state’s Attorney General to unilaterally prosecute election cases. The powerful Court disagrees.

Attorney General Ken Paxton has asked for a motion to rehear the case but says the Court can summarily dismiss it if they so decide. The Court is the most powerful in the state in criminal matters because of its bifurcated appellate court system.

The context here is that there are local district attorneys who won't prosecute vote fraud... usually in the highly liberal blue cities. A prime example being Austin.

That means those blue areas can fraud elections -- particularly presidential ones, which are statewide totals rather than local -- as much as they want without fear or prosecution for their fraud.

This decision, which appears to overturn 60 years of precedent, is hard to explain except by noting that judges in Texas are elected.

Race based rationing for COVID treatments

Just The News"The risk scoring calculator provides a 7-point bonus to all patients who are 'non-white or Hispanic,'" WILL said in a letter to SSM. "In other words, non-white patients receive a 7-point head start in your risk scoring calculator and are therefore more likely to receive lifesaving medical treatment based solely on the color of their skin."

SSM has hospitals in Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, and Oklahoma.

"The approach taken by your calculator is not only profoundly unethical and immoral, it is illegal," WILL added. "Federal law forbids race discrimination. Under Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, patients may not be discriminated against based on race in any health program or activity 'a part of which is receiving Federal financial assistance.'"

This is disgusting, illegal, and outright evil. It borders on genocide.

Do COVID-19 vaccines disrupt menstrual cycles?

Emerald RobinsonBack in the summer of 2021, noted author Dr. Naomi Wolf was permanently banned from Twitter for the “misinformation” of wondering whether the new vaccines could affect women’s menstrual cycles. This was a lie, according to NPR (and a thousand other corporate media outlets) that merited the disappearance of any vaccine skeptic crazy enough to repeat the allegation. It was like claiming that the earth was flat in the 21st century: a denial of science so terrible that it called into question the sanity of the speaker. Various liberal publications even began to question whether Dr. Naomi Wolf had ever been liberal, or insightful, now that she was a confirmed anti-vaxxer.

Of course, it turns out that Dr. Naomi Wolf was correct. Hundreds of women have come forward in the last year claiming that their periods were disrupted. A study of these women has confirmed the disruption.

Millions of injections with no long term testing at all.

Canadian government illegally spied on cell phone data

Conservative TreehouseComrades, when we permit the government to gather private cell phone data, the government will always gather private cell phone data. In Canada the health officials have now admitted they captured, without legislative authority, the personal cell phone data and geolocation data of 33 million Canadians.

As a result, and a little late all things considered, privacy issues are being raised about the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) buying the location data of Canadian cellphone users to monitor their activity. The agency said it wanted to analyze the movement of people during the pandemic to ensure their safety and well-being.

However, the implications of a totalitarian administrative state monitoring citizens under the guise of pandemic authority, does not make everyone feel comfy.

Of course they did.

If they have the ability to spy, they will.

The answer is to make it as hard as possible -- impossible, if possible.

Note the First Amendment tag on this one. The Biden Administration very recently demanded in very strong terms that online social media platforms crack down on "misinformation" about COVID.

The government, and their very deep pockets, are now a potential defendant in a First Amendment lawsuit. In addition to Youtube and their very deep pockets.

Wisconsin judge rules dropboxes are illegal

Just The NewsA Wisconsin judge has ruled that the absentee ballot drop boxes widely deployed during the 2020 election are not allowed under state law, a decision that could dramatically impact voting ahead of the swing state's midterm elections.

Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren ordered on Thursday the Wisconsin Elections Commission to retract its instructions to election officials on how to use drop boxes. Bohren declared that the WEC had overstepped its authority in issuing the guidance in the first place.

Bohren called the WEC's guidance a "major policy decision that alter[s] how our absentee ballot process operates," that was significant enough that it should have required approval by the Legislature.

It took over a year for a judge to admit that this was illegal.
