Vaccine safety issues for pregnant women

Daily ExposeThe confidential Pfizer documents that the FDA have been forced to publish by court order reveal that 82% to 97% of women who were mistakenly exposed to the mRNA Covid-19 injection either suffered a miscarriage or suffered having to witness the death of their newborn child upon giving birth.

But Pfizer claimed – “There were no safety signals that emerged from the review of these cases of use in pregnancy”.

The thing about hiding and censoring information is that you are no longer trusted to interpret it once it gets out.

The only catch here is that of about 280 women who were vaccinated while pregnant, Pfizer stopped tracking results for 240 of them for unspecified reasons.If they all had normal outcomes, then the problem percentage is 15% not 80%-90%. But that's only if every one of those unreported outcomes were normal, healthy children.

Someone with access to health insurance data needs to start running some queries on this. If it validates with real world data...

Data: Vaccinated getting more positive COVID tests than unvaxxed

Gateway PunditThe National Conservative posted some shocking numbers on the positivity rate of those Americans who are vaccinated compared with those who are not vaccinated.

According to data from over 5,000 Walgreens stores, the unvaccinated have the lowest incidence of COVID.

There are many possible reasons for this, but none of them are positive for the vaccines.

I'm not familiar with the news outlet cited by Gateway Pundit, but the report they are referring to is on the Walgreens site and is as described.

Did vaccines cause increase in heart problems?

Gateway PunditA recent study in Israel revealed more than a 25% increase in calls in Israel’s National Emergency Medical Services (IEMS) concerning emergency cardiovascular events in the 16 to 39 age group during the Covid-19 vaccination rollout.

The study analyzed all calls related to cardiac arrest (CA) and acute coronary syndrome (ACS) events from January 1st, 2019 to June 20th, 2021.

The findings showed more than a 25% increase in both cardiac arrest (CA) calls and acute coronary syndrome (ACS) calls of people in the 16–39 age group during the Covid-19 vaccination rollout in Israel (January–May 2021), as compared to 2019-2020.

Correlation is not causation. But we already know the vaccines cause heart problems in some people who take them. Now we're seeing positively huge increases in heart problems across whole populations -- populations which were heavily vaccinated and boosted repeatedly.

It's worth noting that this is a 25% increase in a small (presumably, based on age group) number of calls to an emergency services line. It's not 25% of the population.

Paxlovid: No evidence of benefit in recurrent COVID

Gateway PunditU.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Wednesday that using Pfizer’s Paxlovid pill has “no evidence of benefit at this time for a longer course of treatment” in patients with recurrent Covid-19 symptoms, contradicting Pfizer’s CEO Albert Bourla’s comments.

Honestly, the expensive vaccines and pills being offered for COVID just don't seem to do much when you actually look at the data. The courses of treatment involving ivermectin and/or HCQ seem much more successful in trials that show success at all. The ones that don't -- well, there's room for skepticism about their fairness, too.

J&J vaccine limited due to blood clot risk

Gateway PunditThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced on Thursday that it would limit who can receive the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen Covid-19 shot due to the serious risk of blood clots.

The FDA announced that it would limit the authorized use of J&J Covid-19 shot to individuals 18 years of age and older for whom other authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccines are not accessible or clinically appropriate, and to individuals 18 years of age and older who elect to receive the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine because they would otherwise not receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

The change is being made after the investigation revealed that there is a risk of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), a syndrome of rare and potentially life-threatening blood clots in combination with low levels of blood platelets following administration of the Janssen Covid-19 shot.

Avoiding these vaccines is looking like a better and better decision.

CDC data release shows they concealed potential harm from vaccines

Meaning In History URGENT PFIZER NEWS: Pfizer and the CDC committed fraud for willfully withholding critical data from the public resulting in harm and death to thousands. The CDC is spreading medical misinformation. What they have done is obscene. We are completely vindicated.

URGENT PFIZER NEWS: Pfizer and the CDC were hiding data that showed harm and death by injection. What's going on here is criminal. For the people who knew the data, but said nothing there will be legal consequences. Either you will be witnesses or defendants.

URGENT PFIZER NEWS: The FDA and the CDC had to be sued to release the data. The reluctance to release the data on a biological product that every person is being asked to take should make everyone concerned. DOD data shows clear increase in disease after injection.

The vaccines don't work; they do cause harm; and this was hidden from everyone while the government pushed mandates.

I don't think we'll ever get justice for a crime this huge.

COVID vaccines with serious complications 40x higher than previously known

Gateway PunditThe number of serious complications after vaccinations against Sars-CoV-2 is 40 times higher than previously recorded by the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI). This is one of the results of a long-term observational study by the Berlin Charité. Study director Professor Harald Matthes is now calling for more contact points for those affected.

The study “Safety Profile of Covid-19 Vaccines” (“ImpfSurv” for short), which focuses on the effects and side effects of the various vaccines, has been running for a year. Around 40,000 vaccinated people are interviewed at regular intervals throughout Germany. Participation in the study is voluntary and independent of how the vaccines work in the subjects.

One result: eight out of 1,000 vaccinated people struggle with serious side effects. “The number is not surprising,” explains Prof. Dr. Harald Matthes, head of the study: “It corresponds to what is known from other countries such as Sweden, Israel or Canada. Incidentally, even the manufacturers of the vaccines had already determined similar values in their studies.” With conventional vaccines, such as against polio or measles, the number of serious side effects is significantly lower.

Eight of a thousand people with "serious" side effects. It's a small percentage, but the percentage of people at risk from COVID is similarly small.

"Paxlovid" doesn't work

Gateway PunditPfizer announced Friday that a recent trial study revealed its antiviral pill Paxlovid was not effective at preventing Covid-19 infection in adults who had been exposed to the virus through household contact.

Pfizer’s Paxlovid became the first US authorized home COVID-19 treatment. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization for Pfizer’s antiviral pill to treat mild-to-moderate COVID-19 infections in December.

According to the press release, Paxlovid significantly reduced the proportion of people with COVID-19-related hospitalization or death from any cause by 88%.

Biden administration announced this week to double the number of locations that carry Paxlovid. They secured funding to purchase 20 million treatment courses of the antiviral pill, per CNN.

Well, to be fair, it may do something in certain cases. But it doesn't help if someone in your household has COVID. My guess would be viral load.

Vaccine-induced fertility issues?

Gateway PunditThen in February 2022, the European Medicines Agency’s risk assessment committee announced that it would review reports of menstruation irregularities after thousands of women have reported changes to their monthly cycle after getting the COVID vaccine.

“After reviewing the available evidence, the PRAC decided to request an in-depth evaluation of all available data, including reports from spontaneous reporting systems, clinical trials, and the published literature,” according to the news release.

Dr. Naomi Wolf: Report shows that pregnant women were excluded from the trials before they concluded it was safe and effective. They concluded it was safe and effective based on mice and the autopsies of mice fetuses. And horrifically, the Department of Defense data shows that female soldiers’ pregnancies are experiencing an absolutely catastrophic rate of abnormalities and fetal problems…

The testing strategies for these productions appear to have been designed to conceal problems rather than reveal them.

Pandemic agencies lack protections against political interference

Robert MaloneThe 37-page GAO report issued a warning that American federal agencies who have managed the pandemic public policy response (including vaccine and drug development) don’t have any mechanism to stop political interference. That they also don’t have reporting mechanisms for whistleblower allegations involving political interference. Furthermore, despite the leadership of these organizations (CDC, FDA, NIH and ASPR) asserting that there have been no political interference during the pandemic, an investigation by the GAO found multiple examples of such within the agencies.

And the COVID panic has been extremely political.

The mRNA Vaccines Don't Work

Just the NewsThe mRNA COVID-19 vaccines made by Pfizer and Moderna showed no reduction in all-cause mortality in randomized controlled trials (RCTs), according to a new paper by researchers at primarily Danish institutions.

"Based on the RCTs with the longest possible follow-up," mRNA vaccines only protected against "fatal" COVID, while adenovirus-vector vaccines made with older technology, including Johnson & Johnson's, "were associated with lower overall mortality and lower non-accident, non-COVID-19 mortality," they wrote.

The research adds to existing questions about the evidentiary basis for vaccine and booster mandates on tens of millions of Americans.

That the J&J vaccines apparently do -- or at least help -- is a little surprising, but the association with lower non-COVID mortality makes me suspect that something is amiss in that part of the data.

The key takeaway though is that it is completely inexcusable to mandate vaccines that a) are known to have significant risks of harm and b) DON'T WORK.

Booster shots forever

Gateway Pundit“We are certainly right now in this country out of the pandemic phase,” Fauci said. “Namely we don’t have 900,000 new infections a day and tens and tens and tens of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands of deaths. We are at a low level right now.”

“So, if you’re saying, are we out of the pandemic phase in this country, we are. What we hope to do, I don’t believe, and I have spoken about this widely, we’re not going to eradicate this virus,” he said. “If we can keep that level very low, and intermittently vaccinate people — and I don’t know how often that would have to be.”

“COVID isn’t over, and the pandemic isn’t over,” Psaki said.

More interesting to me than whether we are out of the pandemic phase or not is the fact that Fauci basically admits here that he wants a forever-boosted vaccine. Just keep getting "booster shots" forever. All this when the vaccines clearly don't work, and may even cause harm.

JAMA study confirms myocarditis vaccine risk

Gateway Pundit“Results of this large cohort study indicated that both first and second doses of mRNA vaccines were associated with increased risk of myocarditis and pericarditis. For individuals receiving 2 doses of the same vaccine, risk of myocarditis was highest among young males (aged 16-24 years) after the second dose. These findings are compatible with between 4 and 7 excess events in 28 days per 100,000 vaccinees after BNT162b2, and between 9 and 28 excess events per 100,000 vaccinees after mRNA-1273.

The risks of myocarditis and pericarditis were highest within the first 7 days of being vaccinated, were increased for all combinations of mRNA vaccines, and were more pronounced after the second dose.”

28 per 100,000 is 280 per million. And we have 350 million people in the US. That's almost 100,000 people if they all took the worse of the two vaccine options in the study. That's a lot of people.

Rhode Island doubles income tax for the unvaxxed

Gateway PunditRhode Island Democrats want to punish the parents of children who refused to submit to the COVID vaccine mandates.

If passed, the bill will financially cripple individuals by doubling their personal income tax and requiring them to pay a monthly fine of $50.

State Senator Samuel Bell is the lead legislator backing the bill, which mandates all Rhode Island residents, workers, and taxpayers receive a COVID-19 vaccine as well as any subsequent boosters that the state’s director of the department of health shall require.

This is clearly punitive rather than revenue based. If it passes, I expect a lot of people to leave the state, which is probably just fine with the Democrats.

Bayou Renaissance ManI'm obliged to James Roguski for putting in a nutshell the enormous dangers posed by proposed changes to the International Health Regulations of the World Health Organization. These changes were proposed by the Biden administration, and are so far-reaching that they effectively hand over control of the USA to the WHO in the event of a health crisis. In the process, they trample the United States Constitution.

The most concerning part of this is that the changes were finalized the day before Trump was inaugurated. That's more than enough to make it not a coincidence.

FDA approves COVID test likely to generate false positives

Just The NewsThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Thursday gave its first emergency use authorization to a COVID-19 test that can detect the virus in a person's breath in minutes.
The FDA said the test showed that people who receive a negative result are likely to be truly negative when they are tested in an area with low disease prevalence. The results also held up when tested against the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

The way the FDA worded this announcement tells me this test will generate huge numbers of false positive results, likely intended to provide another COVID surge to shut down the elections (or at least make them vulnerable to mail-in fraud again).

We'll see if I'm right, and if the people will stand for that.

Loss of immune system capability by the vaccinated?

Daily ExposeThe latest official figures from the UK Health Security Agency show that triple vaccinated people aged 30-70 have now lost at least 70% of their immune system capability compared to the natural immune system of unvaccinated people.

Their immune systems are deteriorating between 10 and 30% per week on average, with the detioration much larger and quicker among the younger age groups.

If this continues at the current rate then all triple vaccinated 18 to 39-year-olds will have 100% immune system degradation by the middle of April 2022, with all other triple vaccinated age-groups following suit not long after.

In other words, official UK Government data strongly suggests the triple vaccinated population are rapidly developing acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

I'm not clear on exactly how bad this is, but it seems pretty bad.

Recent revelations about the vaccines

American GreatnessIn recent weeks, there have been several stunning revelations concerning the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines—and they are being all but ignored by a corporate media eager to change the subject.

The FDA on Tuesday released a large tranche of Pfizer clinical trials documents in response to a Freedom of Information (FOIA) request by the Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency. The documents show that the company knew people were at risk of experiencing more than 1,000 unique adverse side-effects to the mRNA injections.

Additionally, scientists last week revealed that Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine can enter human liver cells and be converted into DNA—something the fact-checkers and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control assured the public could never happen. Scientists also recently discovered that a sequence of genetic material patented by Moderna in 2018 bears a suspicious similarity to the spike protein in Sars-Cov2.

And a new study published on March 2 found that the synthetic mRNA found in the vaccines does not degrade quickly as promised, but continues to produce spike proteins for nearly two weeks.

So far the conspiracy theorists are beating the fact-checkers in accuracy AND timeliness.

WHO already planning for the next pandemic

UncoverDCWhen the COVID-19 pandemic got underway, many of the draconian measures swiftly mandated in the U.S. and the world directly resulted from the World Health Organization’s (WHO) 2005 International Health Regulations (IHR). Now, as COVID restrictions are being lifted and humanity is distracted by the situation in Ukraine, the WHO’s focus has pivoted to “kickstart the process” of dealing with the next global pandemic. On Dec. 1, 2021, the 194 members of the WHO’s World Health Assembly established an intergovernmental negotiating body (INB) to draft and negotiate an “international instrument” on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response. The next meeting to decide working timelines is noted to occur by Mar. 1, 2022.

After two whole years of complete COVID BS, they are already planning to try their totalitarian takeover again at the next opportunity.

CDC targets minorities with pandemic buses

Gateway PunditThe Centers for Disease Control is now deploying fleets of federally funded “pandemic” buses into minority communities to bribe unvaccinated Americans into to getting an experimental COVID-19 injection.

The CDC Partnering for Vaccine Equity program has rewarded a $6 million grant, PANDEMIC (Program to Alleviate National Disparities in Ethnic and Minority Immunizations in the Community) fund to deploy teams in six states into minority communities to persuade those who have refrained from getting vaccinated to comply.

Since October, the effort has resulted in 2,052 minorities getting vaccinated, an investment that costs every taxpayer approximately $5,000 per vaccine, the Epoch Times reports.

When the full risk profile of the vaccines is publicly known, this outreach effort is going to look very different. Especially since the CDC is now on the record for knowing about the problems.

If this is true, in theory, then the spike protein “could be a mutagen because it prevents the fixing of our DNA.”

Remember when they said it didn't alter your DNA? It can alter your DNA.

Information should be free

PowerlineWe have just lived through a period of intense pressure on everyone, down to small children, to be vaccinated and boosted on the ground that only vaccination can save us all from covid disaster. Vaccine passports have been imposed in many locations, unvaccinated people have been treated as second-class citizens, and many liberals have argued that unvaccinated people should not be treated in hospitals if they become sick.

Now the CDC is telling us that, if you and I had access to all of their data, we likely would *misinterpret* it to indicate that the vaccines don’t work very well. (Independent analysts have already raised such questions based on other data sets.) Who knows, the CDC may also have data indicating that adverse side effects from vaccination are more common than the government has let on.

I don’t know about that, but I do know that I, and a great many others, are perfectly competent to analyze data without “misinterpreting” it. It seems obvious that in this case, “misinterpretation” means drawing conclusions that are unhelpful to the Biden administration, Anthony Fauci, and the Democratic Party. It is long past time for CDC to release the reams of data it has in its possession and let the rest of us argue about what conclusions we should draw from it.

This sort of situation is exactly why laws like FOIA exist. Government employees work for the people, not the politicians, and keeping potentially vital health information about the vaccine efficacy over fears that people might misinterpret (by which they really mean disagree) is obscene. The people have a right to know so they can make their own informed decision about whether to take the vaccine or not.

COVID relief fraud

Just The NewsRep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), ranking member of the House Ways and Means Committee, accused Democrats and the Biden administration of attempting to cover up massive pandemic relief fraud.

"Right now our Democrat colleagues are continuing to turn a blind eye to what's possibly the greatest theft of American taxpayer dollars in American history," Brady said on Tuesday during a briefing on the estimated $80 billion of pandemic unemployment payment fraud.

"Faced with billions of dollars lost to unchecked unemployment fraud involving organized cybercrime and international crime rings, Democrats have ignored repeated calls for congressional oversight hearings," he added.

Stimulus funding was needed in the early days of the pandemic when the economy shut down, but the continuation of most relief programs into late 2021 led to increased fraudulent activity, Brady argued.

I'm sure the fraud was deliberate and going on from the beginning.

France deactivates vaccine passports for those without boosters

Gateway PunditThis past week, the French Government began deactivating the vaccine passports of nearly four million double-vaxxed citizens because they still have not taken the booster, according to France News 24. Individuals who have had their passes taken away will effectively be relegated to unvaxxed status and no longer be able to engage in most aspects of society.

Although some are willing to take the booster, most were caught completely off guard when they checked their app and found their privileges had been revoked.

France has repeatedly changed the time allowed to receive a booster since the third jab was announced. At first, people had 6 months to take the extra shot, then it dropped to just 3 months, then 7. Currently, the booster must be taken in 4 months for the vax pass to remain active.

It's clear that this is a political move, not a public health move. The health benefits of boosters are now known to be minimal at best and that knowledge will spread rapidly, reducing people's willingness to comply with the COVID regime. Macron's choice is to crack down now, while people might still listen, or wait until his population will simply refuse and ignore his orders despite the digital enforcement.

Trudeau backed down. Will Macron?

Accountability

American GreatnessThe Left, of course, immediately seized the opportunity to slither away from any blame and set about tweaking the history books to ignore or gloss over their indefensible conduct.

Fast-forward to 2022 and see if you can spot the parallel.

If we replace Cold War with COVID, we can see that the Left is planning the same gambit. Except this time they are not waiting for the Republicans to let them off the hook. They are already working to shift responsibility, even before the ink is dry on the new script: “We’ve never been at war with Europa; we’ve always been at war with East Asia.” (Whoops, that’s Orwell, not real life. It’s hard to tell the difference sometimes.) “We’ve never been in favor of lockdowns, mask mandates, school closures, and mandatory vaccinations. We’ve always been in favor of freedom and prosperity.”

The Dems would love to be able to rewrite history here, and they have been able to do so successfully in the past. However, this time, their base is still locked into mask paranoia, and the mistreatment applied to the unvaccinated -- including, in particular, injuries and lost jobs or forced shots from mandates. Those people will not forget, even if Democrats move on.

Project VeritasFDA Executive Officer, Christopher Cole: “You’ll have to get an annual shot [COVID vaccine]. I mean, it hasn’t been formally announced yet ‘cause they don’t want to, like, rile everyone up.”

Cole on President Joe Biden: “Biden wants to inoculate as many people as possible.”

Cole on plans to approve vaccine for toddlers: “They're not going to not approve [emergency use authorization for children five years old or less].”

Cole on pharmaceutical companies: “There’s a money incentive for Pfizer and the drug companies to promote additional vaccinations.”

Cole on the financial incentive for pharmaceutical companies: “It’ll be recurring fountain of revenue. It might not be that much initially, but it’ll be recurring -- if they can -- if they can get every person required at an annual vaccine, that is a recurring return of money going into their company.”

These statements are damning because they are the common-sense truths that the official narrative has been denying for years.

NIH gave only 2% of budget to COVID pandemic

PJMediaDespite the ubiquitous presence of Dr. Anthony Fauci on television to pontificate about COVID-19, it appears the National Institutes of Health (NIH) spent very little of its expansive budget on COVID research. In an analysis in preprint, researchers found only 2% of the NIH budget was allocated to COVID studies early in the pandemic. The investigation found that 2% of grants and 5.3% of the NIH budget got allocated to COVID research in 2020 overall. It also found that the average time to award a grant was 151 days.

This seems somewhat at odds with the fear porn in the media constantly.

New York Mayor fires a thousand people who refused vaccination

The fired included “36 NYPD personnel, 25 Fire Department workers and 914 Department of Education staffers.

This is punishing people who refused to harm themselves merely to demonstrate their subservience. It is disgusting.

That said, what's up with the huge number of Dept of Education workers? Are there just that many more of them?

Masks don't work

Bloomberg Masks have been the most visible part of America’s pandemic response, but one of the least consequential. The fact that 500,000 people worldwide died during the omicron surge means it’s time to change tactics, and focus on what went wrong that led to so many hospitalizations and deaths…

…The benefits of universal masking have been difficult to quantify. One controlled study in Bangladesh showed a small but statistically significant benefit — among people who consistently used masks, 7.6% got symptomatic infections compared to 8.6% in the control group. Other studies have been inconclusive…

…The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota have laid out a more complex analysis: Given the current understanding that the virus is transmitted in fine aerosol particles, it’s likely an infectious dose could easily get through and around loose-fitting cloth or surgical masks.

This has been obvious for a very long time. But now the midterms are forcing even the media to admit it.

A new antibody treatment that works against Omicron

Just The NewsThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration this week announced an emergency use authorization for a new monoclonal antibody treatment against COVID-19, a course which it said would be effective against the waning omicron variant of the virus.

If there are effective treatments, we don't need mandatory vaccines. In fact, if the FDA was functioning normally, even one effective treatment would end the EUA for the vaccines because it would no longer be an "emergency".

Vaccine mandates are the real cause of hospital staffing issues

The FederalistMeanwhile, while the expert class, COVID hysterics, and even the president of the United States repeatedly rattle off talking points about overflowing ICUs and the “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” they ignore the real crisis plaguing hospitals and their role in creating it.

That crisis is a massively understaffed hospital system as qualified and willing-to-work medical personnel have been thanklessly terminated. Thanks to coercive vaccine mandates, which the U.S. Supreme Court recently upheld, hospitals are hemorrhaging employees and patients are not receiving care they desperately need.

Nebenzya accused the US was testing coronavirus in Ukrainian bats.

Given what we know about US funding for the lab in Wuhan, and what happened over the last two years with COVID, we cannot simply write off this accusation as war propaganda. It seems clear the US has supported and funded biological research labs all over the world, working with dangerous diseases, in ways that are at least potentially weaponizable.

Pfizer pulls attempt to vaccinate toddlers

Conservative TreehouseThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been notified by Pfizer that new data have recently emerged regarding its emergency use authorization request for the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine in children 6 months through 4 years of age.

As part of its rolling submission, the company recently notified the agency of additional findings from its ongoing clinical trial. Based on the agency’s preliminary assessment, and to allow more time to evaluate additional data, we believe additional information regarding the ongoing evaluation of a third dose should be considered as part of our decision-making for potential authorization.

Therefore, the FDA is postponing the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee meeting originally scheduled for Feb. 15.

The mellow has been officially harshed.

Whether it's safety data from the trials, or the antibodies not being "enough" to meet whatever threshold is considered important, pulling the authorization plans is a sign of significant weakness.

Cracks in the COVID wall

Just The NewsElected officials are pushing back against medical licensing boards, hospitals and pharmacists who are blocking access to off-label COVID-19 treatments or threatening to investigate doctors for dispensing them.

Several states are considering legislation of varying specificity to authorize dispensing of drugs such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID. One was introduced by a physician-lawmaker under investigation for prescribing ivermectin to COVID patients.

Oklahoma Attorney General John O'Connor announced Tuesday that his office would not prosecute doctors for prescribing FDA-approved drugs for off-label COVID treatment.

A state medical licensure board has "no legal basis" to discipline a licensed physician for "exercising sound judgement and safely prescribing" ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine for COVID, he said. "Our healthcare professionals should have every tool available to combat COVID-19. Public safety demands this."

It should be up to everyone what they put into their own body, and how they treat their own medical conditions. Vaccines, treatments, whatever. Everybody gets to say no, and everybody gets to try what they think might work, especially if it's already known to be safe.

Political pressure to hype Omicron fear porn

PJMediaDr. Angelique Coetzee is the South African responsible for alerting health officials about the omicron variant of COVID-19 back in November. At the time of the discovery, she observed that it presented “unusual but mild” symptoms.

This was undeniably good news. Despite being more transmissible, the omicron variant was less severe, and many believed that it meant that the pandemic was nearing its end. But Dr. Coetzee says that she was subjected to “a lot of pressure from European scientists and politicians” to revise her original diagnosis that omicron presented mostly mild symptoms so that the public would perceive omicron to be just as dangerous as the delta variant.

She was subsequently attacked for her refusal to push the preferred narrative.

“Because of all of COVID’s mutations, all of these scientists and politicians who aren’t from South Africa were contacting me telling me I was wrong when I spoke out, that it was a serious disease … they were telling me I had no idea what I was talking about, they kept attacking me,” she told the Daily Telegraph. “In South Africa it is a lighter disease, but in Europe it has been a serious, serious illness, which is what the politicians want me to say … there has been a lot of pressure from European scientists and politicians who have said ‘Please don’t say it is a mild illness.’”

The CDC has confirmed that omicron is less severe than previous variants, including delta. Nevertheless, Coetzee says she was accused of lying, and of “downplaying omicron because of how it has been in Europe.”

The disease was real, but the panic was manufactured for political purposes.

Knowing the odds on COVID

City JournalIf those odds still aren’t enough to assuage your dread of Covid, consider one more statistic, based on Ioannidis’s analysis of data from Covid tests and seroprevalence surveys. He estimates that in the United States, a nation of 331 million people, there have been a total of 250 million to 350 million Covid infections since the pandemic began. While that estimate includes some people who were infected more than once, it seems clear that the vast majority of Americans have already survived an infection and acquired natural immunity, many without being aware of it. Many don’t realize—and a horde of journalists and public officials are working hard to keep them ignorant—that their enemy today is not a virus in the air but the fear in their minds.

There's a saying that you can't reason someone out of a position that didn't get to using reason in the first place. I don't think this article will actually shake anyone out of COVID mass formation panic. But if they are willing to listen and think, it might be a starting place.

Gateway PunditBeginning on March 15th, law enforcement authorities will begin checking people’s vaccine status by conducting random traffic stops, and spot checks, in order to find dissenters. Anyone caught violating the mandate can be fined “up to four times a year,” with the penalty increasing with each violation. An individual’s first offense will result in a €600 (~$687) fine and can go as high as €3,400 (~$3,890) by the fourth.

The new law also allows the Austrian government to create a dystopian vaccine registry that will record everyone who has been vaccinated and give those who have been found disobeying a date they must be vaccinated by, allowing the government to fine them repeatedly.

DoD tries to memory hole medical data showing vax issues

Robert Malone (quoting DoD here) “But Peter Graves, spokesperson for the Defense Health Agency’s Armed Forces Surveillance Division, told PolitiFact by email that "in response to concerns mentioned in news reports" the division reviewed data in the DMED "and found that the data was incorrect for the years 2016-2020."

Officials compared numbers in the DMED with source data in the DMSS and found that the total number of medical diagnoses from those years "represented only a small fraction of actual medical diagnoses." The 2021 numbers, however, were up-to-date, giving the "appearance of significant increased occurrence of all medical diagnoses in 2021 because of the underreported data for 2016-2020," Graves said.

The DMED system has been taken offline to "identify and correct the root-cause of the data corruption," Graves said.”

In an article on DoD medical data regarding vaccine harms, I noticed the above quote. I've bolded for emphasis.

They aren't saying the post-vaccine data is wrong. They aren't saying it has been incorrectly analyzed. They aren't claiming there was some conflating factor. No.

They are saying, right out there in plain langauge, that the historical data will be adjusted to suit the present political narrative.

That should be setting off your 1984 alarm bells.

In a little while -- maybe a few weeks, maybe months -- we will start to see tiny little tucked away articles with headlines like "DOD data shows no harmful vax effects" with no mention of the earlier "corrupted" historical data having been "corrected".

And when we do, I'll have this article to look back to and point at and call bullshit, because they can memory hole the DOD database, but they can't easily memory hole me.

US law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS), will also assist with the crackdown by investigating “online threats that originated in the US,” despite little to no evidence or behavior that has indicated any violence is being planned.

According to the OPS statement, the ‘enhanced investigation’ will begin targeting the key figures who are behind the organization of the convoy as part of the Canadian government’s “increased effort to identify and target protestors who are funding/supporting/enabling unlawful and harmful activity by protesters.”

Now our intelligence agencies are investigating Canadian political protesters.

* Matched genetic sequence patented by Moderna for cancer research purposes

Mask-protesting students locked in freezing gym

TwitterGetting reports that after hundreds protested against school mask mandates yesterday, today, @OakdaleJUSD barricaded any student not properly wearing a mask in the gym and refused to turn on the heat. Police were called for a wellness check and police turned on the heat.

At least the students didn't get run over. But I think, rather than pointing out that this is part of the dehumanization campaign against the unvaxxed, it's more likely to be the result of that campaign. These are kids! Students, not even yet adults, who are not at risk from COVID nor at risk of transmitting it to anyone. They aren't even sick. They just don't want to wear masks all day, every day, for the rest of eternity. Many of the teachers who locked them in the gym know their names, talked with them nearly every day for months at a time. And yet, their humanity is rejected because their faces can be seen?

This is insanity.

Also: if you were under any illusions that teachers in public schools actually cared about your kids, this should straighten that out right quick.

CDC admits natural immunity is superior, still pushing vax

Just The NewsNatural immunity from COVID-19 is broad and durable. The lowest risk group for COVID complications should get vaccines — and boosters, for those authorized — regardless of their health.

These statements came out of the CDC two days apart, illustrating the agency's mixed messaging as ongoing research fails to show a meaningful effect on viral transmission from COVID interventions [ie, vaccines], especially in children.

They have also exposed a potential rift between the agency's researchers and its social media team, which proclaim the gospel of vaccines and boosters even for research that is more circumspect.

Assuming that the difference in messaging is merely a disconnect between the scientists and the social media team is ignoring the politicians and bureaucrats standing in between the two.

Trucker's convoy in the US

Just The NewsThe "People's Convoy," a U.S. trucker protest against COVID-19 mandates, is set to begin on Wednesday in California.

Inspired by the Canadian truckers' "Freedom Convoy," the People's Convoy is expecting about 1,000 trucks to start the journey east, with more joining along the way.

Hopefully it will have a similar impact here -- and hopefully, the Biden administration won't take the opportunity to go full dictator like Trudeau did.

UPDATE: Sarah thinks this convoy is glowy. Maybe. The Canadian version looked effective right up until it gave Trudeau perpetual emergency powers. On the one hand the opposition will definitely use this event to push for more power. On the other, without this event they are pushing for more power.

I don't vouch for anything or anybody.

FDA performs another vax bait and switch

Gateway PunditEarlier this week, the US Food and Drug Administration announced that it had ‘fully approved’ the Moderna Covid vaccine for use in all US adults over 18 years old.

Just like the Pfizer vaccine ‘approval,’ the FDA ignored several serious red flags and circumvented their own expert vaccine advisory panel to ‘fully approve’ the Moderna vaccine. Also similar to Pfizer’s ‘Comirnaty vaccine’ approval, Moderna’s ‘Spikevax,’ is not actually available in the US, but, rather, is able to be swapped out with the previous version that is still under EUA approval.Just days after the announcement, the FDA quickly removed a document from their website that explained the reasoning behind their decision to approve Moderna’s vaccine after it was found to have included damning data showing the rate of heart inflammation in individuals that have taken two doses of Moderna’s vaccine.

Again, why the games, if the vaxes work and are safe?

Obviously, it's because they don't work and aren't safe.

Military database suggests massive adverse effects from vaccines

Conservative TreehouseDuring testimony last week, attorney Thomas Renz gave testimony {Direct Rumble Link} on behalf of whistleblowers inside the military medical system who have access to vaccination data that is withheld from the general public.

The documents that were released to Thomas Renz are now being reviewed {Direct Rumble Link}. The resulting information is very disturbing.

The research took five-year averages of medical conditions and then compared the track record to the results after the mandatory military vaccination program was initiated. The results are alarming...

I don't know of a way to link all the increased percentages of medical disorders to the COVID vaccines. Some of them are obvious. Others are less obvious. However, it is absolutely clear from the numbers that something is going on.

Trudeau invokes never-used Emergency Act against truckers

Conservative TreehouseRather than remove any of the Canadian government restrictions and rules surrounding COVID-19 mandates, media are reporting that at 4:30pm today Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will instead invoke the Emergency Act, formerly the War Powers Act, to take emergency action to quell the ‘Freedom Protests’ taking place in Canada.

This is a rather remarkable development highlighting the severity of the totalitarian mindset behind the governing Liberal party in Canada. The Emergency Act has never before been used.

He's already called them Nazi racists, used police powers to spy on their social media accounts and send police to their homes, attempted to steal $10M of their funding, frozen their bank accounts, taken their food and fuel in below-freezing weather (thus putting their children in danger from the cold), threatened them with arrest, imprisonment, loss of commercial driver's licenses, and $100K in fines.

The truckers have so far responded with remarkably peaceful good grace.

The best response to this provocation might be to just go home, and stay home, for a couple weeks. All the truckers, all at once. No goods moving anywhere in Canada, not because anything is blocked, but because all the truckers are having a nice nap.

Trudeau has chosen, repeatedly and consistently, to threaten and escalate rather than listening to the concerns of the people he claims to represent. He has denied their right to free speech and peaceful protest.

Another study that says Ivermectin works against COVID

Just The NewsThe Japanese trading and pharmaceutical company Kowa Co. Ltd. said Monday that ivermectin shows an "antiviral effect" against the Omicron variant of COVID-19 and other virus variants.

The statement was based on joint, non-clinical trials the company has been running with Tokyo's Kitasato University.

The drug's use for treating COVID has been controversial, though clinical trials are ongoing.

I don't think Japan has a lot of parasitic worm infections as a compounding variable.

If it's not something like worms, my next guess would be that the US studies -- deliberately or not -- are somehow deficient. We saw something similar with HCQ, where studies done in the US did not utilize the successful treatment protocols demonstrated elsewhere. HCQ was given too late, or without the other necessary treatment elements.

To borrow an analogy, I don't think the "enemy aliens" who want to push a vaccine on everyone are above sabotaging a study or two if they can do so without getting caught.

Canada further dehumanizes the unvaccinated

Gateway PunditThe Canadian Province of Quebec has officially banned unvaccinated individuals over 12 years old from shopping at big box stores, including Walmart and Costco, unless they are accompanied by a “health warden” that will supervise their every move and only allow them to purchase extremely limited goods such as food or medicine.

The dystopian segregation policy went into effect yesterday and applies to any retail stores that are over 1500 square meters.

Even though the mandate explicitly excludes “grocery stores and pharmacies,” the Quebec government went ahead and included Walmart and Costco anyway after claiming that it does not consider groceries as Walmart and Costco’s “principal activity.”

This is a dangerous trend.

What the truckers want

Bari Weiss & Rupa SubramanyaThe convoy is spearheaded by truckers, but its message of opposition to life under government control has brought onto the icy streets countless, once-voiceless people declaring that they are done being ignored. That the elites—the people who have Zoomed their way through the pandemic—had better start paying attention to the fentanyl overdoses, the suicides, the crime, the despair. Or else.

Spotify caves to the censors

Gateway Pundit“We are working to add a content advisory to any podcast episode that includes a discussion about COVID-19. This advisory will direct listeners to our dedicated COVID-19 Hub, a resource that provides easy access to data-driven facts, up-to-date information as shared by scientists, physicians, academics and public health authorities around the world, as well as links to trusted sources. This new effort to combat misinformation will roll out to countries around the world in the coming days. To our knowledge, this content advisory is the first of its kind by a major podcast platform.” CEO Daniel Ek said in a statement.

Last week Biden’s Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy called for Rogan’s show to be censored.

A warning label from "fact checkers" is where Facebook and Twitter started.

The problem isn't "misinformation" from people like Joe Rogan, who brings on real experts and lets them talk. The problem is that the "official sources" are not trusted because they are not worthy of trust. Their lies have been tested against reality and exposed as such. People are looking elsewhere for truth.

You can't convince people of something by telling them to shut up.

Truc Frudeau -- Let's Go Brandon!

I haven't had much to say about the situation in Canada with the trucker's protest against vaccine mandates. It has certainly been devastatingly effective in paralyzing the government there and forcing a reaction -- indeed, a dramatic overreaction which has already cost the government quite a bit of support.

See, these truckers just wanted to do their jobs without getting a shot that doesn't protect them against a disease that most people won't even notice having. But Trudeau, famous for repeatedly wearing blackface, issued a diktat that would have prevent these truckers from crossing the border back into their own country. Turning them into exiles.

This resulted in a massive protest by truckers and their supporters who had clearly become fed up with mandates, masks, lockdowns, all of it.

What did Trudeau do?

He called them racists and terrorists, pressuring the police and national security agencies to investigate the peaceful protesters and their financial supporters.

It didn't work.

Neither did the antifa activist who ran over four protesters.

The police tried to take their fuel, then had to give it back.

Mass arrests come next.

The truckers stand for freedom continues.

Three doses for toddlers?!

New York PostThe White House said Wednesday that the COVID-19 vaccine regime for kids younger than 4 years old will likely be three doses when it’s approved

Remember two things.

First, children are at pretty much absolutely zero risk from COVID. I mean, healthy adults are at low risk, right? Less than 1 percent or so. Young adults, even less; teenagers, less than that... toddlers, the age we are talking about here, less even that that.

Second, vaccine protection disappears quickly. Between antibodies getting lower and the virus mutating, by about 6 months a vaccinated individual doesn't have any better chances than an unvaccinated person. Perhaps slightly worse.

So even assuming it's safe -- and I think the evidence already shows, probably not -- the vaccine will offer no benefit to children of this age, and in 6 months, may well be worse off.

Of course, if they die of myocarditis, they will be worse off immediately.

More dangerous Chinese gain of function research?

Gateway PunditNeoCoV is a member of a group of coronaviruses, one of which caused the 2012 Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) outbreak that killed 34% of the approximately 2,500 people it infected.

According to the Chinese authors, NeoCoV binds, not just to the bat DPP4 receptor found in most MERS coronaviruses, but also weakly binds to ACE2, which is the human receptor for the highly transmissible COVID-19 virus.

The Chinese scientists, at least one of which, Xiangxi Wang, has extensive links to China’s People’s Liberation Army, then proceeded to genetically engineer NeoCoV to increase its ability to infect humans.

If true, this could be very dangerous indeed. And the bar of proof for Chinese labs performing deadly gain of function experiments on coronaviruses has been dramatically lowered over the past year or so.

Yale campus transforms into COVID surveillance state

Free BeaconWhen Delta hit, the university banned "close contact greetings" at club sporting events, "including handshakes, hugs, and high-fives." And in anticipation of Omicron, it ordered students to "avoid" local businesses and outdoor restaurants until at least Feb. 7, warning that the "campus-wide quarantine" could "extend beyond that date if on- or off-campus COVID-19 rates are high."

The rules increasingly feel like overkill, several students told the Free Beacon, and adherence to them has grown spotty at best. But while there have been scattered complaints about the restrictions’ toll on mental health, there has not been much organized opposition to the restrictions themselves.

That quiescence is not a coincidence. Rather, it is the product of an anonymous reporting system that has turned students into informants, encouraging them to snitch on their peers for the most mundane infractions, according to those who’ve lived under the rules for nearly two years. The result is what one student called "a silenced majority" of undergraduates, who oppose the restrictions but fear the "shame" and "administrative consequences" of speaking out.

This is exactly how totalitarian societies work. Anonymous reporting of people whoj don't go along with whatever the latest stupid dictate is. Public struggle sessions where students are encouraged to "call out" other students for saying something deemed racist, and if you can't find any racism you fail the class. Another school is offering counseling for students affected by "free speech events". A third has gone straight to treating students as prisoners. This is a national madness that must stop.

Child mortality rate by vaccination status in the UK

Behind the BlackData compiled by the Office of National Statistics in Great Britain shows that giving young children the COVID shots, especially those aged from 10 to 14, makes their mortality 10 to 52 times higher, depending on the number of shots received.

The graph to the right, from the link, illustrates this starkly. If a child gets one shot, the mortality goes up about ten times. If a child gets two shots, it increases the mortality another five-fold, or about fifty times greater than for children who get no shots at all.

This is very concerning. Especially when you remember that COVID poses basically no threat at all to that age group, and the vaccine provides basically no protection from current COVID variants.

Tyranny of the Majority, pill edition

The ConversationDemocratically enacted enforceable rules – mandating things like mask wearing and social distancing – might work, if defectors could be coerced into adhering to them. But not all states have opted to pass them or to enforce the rules that are in place.

My research in bioethics focuses on questions like how to induce those who are noncooperative to get on board with doing what’s best for the public good. To me, it seems the problem of coronavirus defectors could be solved by moral enhancement: like receiving a vaccine to beef up your immune system, people could take a substance to boost their cooperative, pro-social behavior. Could a psychoactive pill be the solution to the pandemic?

This "ethicist" is a monster with no respect for people who disagree with him.

Testimoney on potential vaccine issues

Conservative TreehouseDuring a segment of the presentation, Attorney Thomas Renz gave testimony on behalf of whistleblowers inside the medical system who have access to vaccination data that is withheld from the general public.

Mr. Renz outlined data of adverse reaction to the vaccinations including a rate of miscarriages that increased 300% over the five-year average, a rate of increased cancer over 300%, and an increase in neurological issues over 1,000 percent (from 82,000 yearly average to now 863,000 in one year with the vaccines).

If true, and it was given to Congress under penalty of perjury, this is a huge problem for everyone involved. A criminal problem, probably, for the people who pushed the vaccine, or hid data about the risks.

I'm convinced the vaccine has a risk profile significantly greater than the general public has been told. But this much greater?

On this one only time will tell. But it sounds like the data to prove the case already exists.

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.

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.

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.

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.'"

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.

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.

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

Supreme Court issues mixed ruling on vaccine mandates

Just The NewsIn a Thursday afternoon ruling, the Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration's OSHA vaccine mandate that would apply to American workers.

The court allowed a separate policy, that requires vaccinations for most health-care workers at facilities that receive Medicaid and Medicare funding, to stand.

This is, obviously, a mixed bag. We should have had 6-3 decisions firmly establishing that vaccinations are a matter of personal choice, not government rule. Instead, we got a narrow ruling in our favor that basically says Congress hasn't acted so there is no authority for a general mandate (leaving open the possibility that Congress could in fact mandate through legislation), and an almost contradictory rule that says federal dollars can carry a vaccine mandate. The latter bodes ill for people who work for federal contractors, though I don't think this decision is actually precedential.

Not much discussed is that the decision is only over the status of injunctions; presumably there will be further arguments and full decisions on the merits later. Neither side should be wailing and gnashing their teeth quite yet, but it sure does suck to have your job on the line and the SC not stay the mandate to protect you.

The three leftists notably embarrassed themselves in oral argument by making up numbers and displaying their ignorance of the law. This didn't seem to bother the Roberts-Kavanaugh alliance in siding with them for the medical worker mandate.

The smoking gun for COVID-19

UncoverDCMurphy explains that the EcoHealth alliance submitted a proposal for a two-phase, $14,209,245 project named DEFUSE—Defusing the Threat of Bat-borne Coronaviruses (2018) to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to conduct gain-of-function research of bat-borne coronaviruses. The purpose of the research was allegedly designed to “innoculate bats in Yunnan, China caves where confirmed SARS-CoVs were found. Ostensibly doing this would prevent another SARS CoV pandemic; the bats’ immune systems would be reinforced to prevent a deadly SARS-CoV from emerging.” Ultimately, the proposal was rejected because the risks were not well-considered at the time.

Murphy also explains that EcoHealth and the “NIAID under the direction of Dr. Fauci, went ahead with the research in Wuhan, China and at several sites across the U.S.” Incidentally, the Obama administration and the NIH announced a moratorium on funding for gain-of-function research on October 17, 2014. The moratorium was lifted in 2017.

As previously mentioned above, the virus was accidentally released before it was “fully attenuated.” That means it was released before it mutated sufficiently “to be non-pathogenic…presumably to bats and humans,” as explained by mRNA developer Dr. Robert Malone.

This is the best explanation for Veritas' explosive document release I've seen.

The purpose of teaching about totalitarianism

BrownstoneIn my teaching, I prepare undergraduate students to become high school history teachers. In one course, teacher candidates prepare and deliver mock lessons. Their peers play the role of high school students, and I observe and give feedback following these practice lessons. Whether coincidence or a reflection of the times, this fall a good number of mock lessons covered the rise of totalitarianism. In one excellent lesson, a teacher candidate had his students examine the contexts that gave rise to totalitarianism. He accompanied this lesson with an excerpt from a world history textbook listing characteristics of totalitarianism.

This lesson hit on the true purpose for including totalitarianism in high school curricula. That purpose is not to honor the likes of Hitler, Stalin, or Mussolini. Nor is that purpose to provide the methods of totalitarianism as an instructional manual to follow. Rather, the purpose of teaching on totalitarianism is to deliver a warning: heed well the conditions that yielded totalitarianism, so you can recognize and avoid them. As I observed this teacher candidate’s lesson, I could not help but think about that purpose in the context of our present time.

The purpose is, of course, to recognize the signs of rising totalitarianism and stop it. So far, that's not gone very well. We already have "vaccine hunters" and "strike teams" and "quarantine camps". Canada will tax the unvaxxed heavily. Australia has home confinement for the unvaxxed, and the French government is threatening their citizenship.

Are vaccines actually increasing COVID?

Gateway PunditInstead of bringing an end to this pandemic as promised, the widespread rollout of the experimental vaccines has actually caused a sharp increase in Covid-19 cases and deaths across the world, according to a recently published preprint study that looked at data from the 145 of the most vaccinated countries in the world.

The 99-page study titled “Worldwide Bayesian Causal Impact Analysis of Vaccine Administration on Deaths and Cases Associated with COVID-19: A BigData Analysis of 145 Countries” found that in the US specifically, the jab has caused a whopping 38% more Covid cases per million – and an even more astonishing 31% increase in deaths per million.

It sounds crazy, but antibody-dependence enhancement is actually a known risk of vaccinating for coronaviruses, even before COVID-19. Now, the data suggests it may actually be happening.

Create a crisis and then demand power to solve it

Curtis HouckMSNBC contributor Vin Gupta argues anyone who’s unvaccinated should be denied care in hospitals because it’d create another one of the “negative incentives” in their lives to where they’d want to get the shots.

He compares being unvaccinated to denying smokers organ transplants...

For organ transplants, there is a very limited supply and a large demand. Some filtering and prioritization are understandable.

For basic medical treatment, there is a large supply to match the large demand, or there was before vaccine mandates forced 5-10% (or in some reports even more) of the medical staff out of the positions in the medical field.

London police investigating vaccines as blackmail?

Just The NewsEnglish medical dissenter Sam White and his legal team on Monday presented what they claim is "significant and irrefutable evidence" of COVID-19 vaccine safety issues to London's Metropolitan Police — and a criminal investigation has now been launched.

Lawyers acting on behalf of Dr. White in his ongoing legal challenge to the British government and the National Health Service demanded the vaccine rollout be stopped immediately.

"A number of government departments and in particular individuals in public office and government have been named as offenders and we have supporting evidence," attorneys with PJH Law announced.

One of the issues White's legal team reported to the police is the government mandate that all NHS staff must be fully vaccinated by April 1. White calls this "blackmail" to force his colleagues "to take the vaccine or lose their jobs."

I find it hard to believe anything will come of this, but I'm amazed that an investigation was launched at all. I wonder what supporting evidence they have?

Vaccine status tracked with implantable microchip

Daily MailSwedish startup Epicenter unveils rice-sized microchip implant that stores your COVID vaccine passport under your skin and is read with technology used to take contactless payments

A number of folks who aren't paying quite as close attention to develops as I am are fond of making jokes about Bill Gates injecting microchips with the COVID vaccines in some sort of obviously-crazy conspiracy theory idea that is supposedly self-debunking. It's a form of mockery that lacks any degree of actual respect for and consideration of actual opinions, and apparently for many people it successfully substitutes for rational argument.

But now we actually do have implantable microchips designed to track vaccine status in order to enable vaccine passports that enable you to enter restaurants, public venues, and god knows what other places will slowly require that you scan your vaccine chip before entering.

Not so funny now, is it?

And it's just a microchip. They can put anything they want in it. Vaccine status. Whether or nor you are up to date on your boosters. Your social credit score. Your government identifier, to update your social credit score based on where you go. Who else is in the bar, restaurant, gym, concert... you get the idea.

Conservative TreehouseStarting in February, vaccination in Austria is compulsory for all citizens. As a result, the Austrian government is now hiring “hunters” to track down the unvaccinated citizens and enforce compliance.

This is really getting scary.

The vaccines are less safe every day

Meaning In HistoryIt seems individuals 40 and under (predominantly males) experience a higher rate of myocarditis after the 2nd dose of Moderna (mRNA-1273) and to a lesser degree Pfizer (BNT162b2) compared to others. Finally, next to no inflammatory heart conditions were seen after administration of AstraZeneca (ChAdOx1).

As a side note, if you listen to the mainstream media enough they’ll have you believing myocarditis is a mild symptom. Let me be clear, by definition, symptoms requiring hospitalization are defined as severe. What’s more, the average mortality rate of non-fulminant myocarditis is nearly 56% which is experienced within 3-10 years. Sadly, that is a consequence of the likely heart failure that develops after the acute phase of myocarditis has resolved. See picture below

The social and financial pressure being applied to these vaccines is entirely inappropriate for something with such serious potential side effects.

Post-mortems identified links to vaccine in deaths

Exactly that kind of investigation was carried out by German pathologist Professor Dr. Arne Burkhardt, who has 40 years of experience in the field. He examined the tissues and organs of 15 patients where a post-mortem had been performed, an exceptional opportunity that came about because the bodies were in institutes of legal medicine and institutes of pathology.

There were seven men and eight women, aged between 28 and 95. They died between seven days and six months post-injection.

In essence, Burkhardt found internal damage in most of the deceased, caused by a self-destruct process in which immune cells – lymphocytes – had invaded different parts of the body.

In five of the 15 cases, it was concluded that the correlation with the vaccination was very probable; in seven, it was probable; and in two cases it was not clear, but possible. “In one case we did not find any of these changes of any significance,” Burkhardt said.

It seems clear that serious and potentially fatal damage to the heart is a risk from the vaccine. Whether or not someone takes that risk should be up to them, not the government or their employer.

Fauci wants you to wear a mask forever

Just The NewsDr. Anthony Fauci thinks people should wear a mask — even if they are vaccinated — forever.

Getting vaccinated and wearing a mask is "not an either/or," the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director told ABC's Jonathan Karl on Sunday. "You can do both and should do both."

Fauci's words do not match his actions

YahooAnthony Fauci said Thursday that the omicron variant will likely be dominant in the U.S. in "a few weeks" and warned of the possibility of hospitals being overwhelmed this winter.

He added, though, that people who are vaccinated, and especially those who have their booster shots, will be "relatively well protected, at least against severe disease," saying he is most worried about the unvaccinated.

If he's so worried about the hospitals being overwhelmed, why did he try to force hospitals to fire any workers who didn't want to be vaccinated?

You might almost wonder if he tried to force hospitals to fire vaccinated workers so that they would be overwhelmed.

Vaccines in young children quickly lead to heart problems

Gateway PunditAfter less than two months since the FDA approved the experimental covid-19 vaccine for children aged 5-11 on October 26th, Eight cases of myocarditis have been reported in children aged 5-11 after taking the Pfizer jab, according to CDC officials.

On Thursday, the CDC Vaccine Advisory Panel held an online meeting to discuss the safety of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine because of numerous reports that it was causing a life-threatening blood clotting condition.

During the meeting, officials also raised concerns over myocarditis developing in young children, noting that the US Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) had already received several records of the serious heart condition developing in 5-11-year-olds.

Children aren't vulnerable to the virus except in very rare cases, but the vaccines do sometimes cause harm in otherwise healthy kids. Why the frantic push to vaccine people who just aren't vulnerable?

New York sets up quarantine camps for mandatory vaccination

Conservative TreehouseAdmittedly it takes quite a bit to raise my blood pressure; but this is one of those real-world issues that does it. There are a lot of really good people in upstate New York and outside the boundaries of that crazy city they are best known for. The New York state assembly passing a bill [A416 LINK HERE] to set up involuntary COVID quarantine camps needs to be stopped right now. This is nuts.

The bill is obtuse in the extreme and grants the state permission to remove and detain someone defined as “a significant threat to public health.” Those of you who have watched the creation of Quarantine Camps in Australia; and those who noted the ongoing activity in Australia seems designed to be a beta test for the USA; will quickly see the common thread with this proposal in New York.

The bill also says the government can “require an individual who has been exposed to or infected by a contagious disease to complete an appropriate, prescribed course of treatment, preventive medication or vaccination.” That seems like this bill gives the state the right to detain anyone they want and forcibly vaccinate them.

Because calling them "concentration camps" would be too obvious.

Correlation does not prove causation... but it's worth investigating

Gateway Pundit“In Waterloo, Ontario, I have a more reliable statistic,” he continued. “There were 86 stillbirths between January and July. Normally, it’s only five or six stillbirths every year. So, about one stillbirth every two months is the usual rate. To suddenly get to 86 stillbirths in six months, that’s highly unusual,” he continued. “But the most important confirmation that we have from the Waterloo, Ontario report was that all of the 86 stillbirths were fully vaccinated.

“We are seeing a correlation and certainly when you see a correlation, you have to start asking, ‘In the water in Waterloo, is there something? Is there something in the air? Is there some toxin in the food supply? But when you see the same correlation in different parts of the country – in Vancouver and then in Waterloo, and you see an increase in stillbirths. You have to ask yourself what is going on that is both in Waterloo, Ontario and Vancouver that is suddenly causing an increase in stillbirths?”

“What we find is the vaccine [in rats] doesn’t just distribute around the body and then wash out again, which is what you’d hope,” he said. “It concentrates in ovaries of rats, and it concentrates at least 20-fold over the concentration in other background tissues like muscles,” he said. “You don’t want this product in your ovaries. It’s simply not necessary to induce immunity to have a vaccine in your ovaries. And, as it’s concentrating in the ovaries, getting higher concentrations over time, they have not even defined what the maximum levels are or when that occurs.”

the fertility impact of the vaccine remains something we know very little about. That doesn't mean there isn't any impact.

Fauci funded gain of function

Just The NewsDr. Anthony Fauci's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) funded "gain of function" research in China for years with the goal of genetically manipulating coronaviruses in bats, according to documents released Tuesday by Judicial Watch.

The conservative watchdog group filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit to obtain records about National Institute of Health (NIH) grants to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where COVID-19 is theorized to have originated.

NIAID official David Morens emailed Fauci's chief of staff in January 2020, explaining that the U.S. agency had been funding "coronavirus work in China for the past 5 years" through a grant titled "Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence." The email was forwarded to Dr. Fauci and others.

The research, in collaboration with the Wuhan Institute, had "a specific focus to identify cohorts of people highly exposed to bats in China, and work out if they’re getting sick" from coronavirus, according to Morens.

Months before a global pandemic was declared, the NIAID official acknowledged in the email that the Chinese institute was working on coronavirus research and had already found that the virus "can bind to human cells."

Yes, we have proven this quite thoroughly already. But sometimes volume of evidence can be convincing.

Oregon proposes making COVID rules permanent

Conservative TreehouseOregon’s indoor mask mandate was imposed from May 2020 to June 2021, lifted briefly, and then reimposed in August. The state’s current mandate is in place until February, but that apparently isn’t good enough in a state where 75% of adults have been fully vaccinated.

The Oregon Health Authority’s Rules Advisory Committee has begun drafting a permanent set of rules for the state’s mask mandate. The permanent rule can be ended at any time by state health leaders, but given Oregon’s track record, which includes at one point mandating that athletes in outdoor sports wear masks during competition, it’s safe to say such a “permanent” rule would be around for quite a while.

There is nothing more permanent than a temporary government program.

Understanding the plan behind the vaccine insanity

Julius RuechelIf a plumber with a lifetime of experience were to tell you that water runs uphill, you would know he is lying and that the lie is not accidental. It is a lie with a purpose. If you can also demonstrate that the plumber knows in advance that the product he is promoting with that lie is snake oil, you have evidence for a deliberate con. And once you understand what's really inside that bottle of snake oil, you will begin to understand the purpose of the con.

One of the most common reasons given for mass COVID vaccinations is the idea that if we reach herd immunity through vaccination, we can starve the virus out of existence and get our lives back. It's the COVID-Zero strategy or some variant of it.

By now it is abundantly clear from the epidemiological data that the vaccinated are able to both catch and spread the disease. Clearly vaccination isn't going to make this virus disappear. Only a mind that has lost its grasp on reality can fail to see how ridiculous all this has become.

Biden looking at travel bans for the unvaccinated?

PJMediaEven though Biden suspended his vaccine mandate for federal workers to save himself a few approval points, he’s nevertheless looking for alternative ways to “force” people to get vaccinated, and a domestic travel ban is one such possibility.

“So, the President said earlier today that there haven’t been any recommendations to put in place domestic travel requirements. But what we saw with the Delta variant is that once it was already here, it spread rapidly across the country. So why not have any testing or vaccination requirements whatsoever for domestic air travel since people are, you know, going fairly openly across the country?” a reporter asked Psaki.

“Well, I think what you heard the President say […] was that he wasn’t taking any options off the table, but he’s going to rely on that advice of his health and medical experts,” Psaki responded.

However, like his vaccine mandate, a ban on domestic travel is also unconstitutional, as it is guaranteed under the Fourteenth Amendment.

Why is Biden so obsessed with forcing people to get vaccinated? Any moral person would try persuasion, and accept no for an answer.

Trying to make the unvaccinated into second class citizens is an evil reminiscent of Nazi Germany, and likely to end in the same place -- even as, in the EU, politicians are considering how to get around the Nuremberg Code.

Austria to fine, imprison anyone who won't vaccinate

Gateway PunditNow, a leak of the draft bill has been obtained by a local news die Presse revealed that the Austrian government plans to fine or jail its citizens if they refuse to get vaccinated.

The preliminary draft bill as reported by Euractiv, states that those who refuse to get vaccinated will be summoned by the authorities and will be fined €3,600 ($4075) if they ignore the summons twice. If they keep ignoring the order and their violation will put other persons at “serious risk”, they will receive a fine up to €7,200 ($8,152).

The draft also mentioned that those who cannot prove they are vaccinated will have a fine every six months.

“Those refusing to be vaccinated are likely to face administrative fines, which can be converted into a prison sentence if the fine cannot be recovered,” according to a report from The Guardian.

This isn't going to end well.

Hospital overcrowding is caused by vaccine mandates

The FederalistEven some cities such as Milwaukee are suffering the consequences of losing numerous key employees who did not care to be medically coerced into getting the jab. Last week, Children’s Wisconsin Milwaukee Hospital scrambled to find nurses and other staff members to tend to 18 injured children who were just a fraction of the dozens of people mowed down when criminal Darrell Brooks allegedly plowed a red SUV through the Christmas parade route.

“It was a nightmare,” one nurse told Federalist contributor Dan O’Donnell. “We just don’t have enough people and [supervisors] were frantically calling in everyone they could, but it wasn’t enough. We are taking care of everyone the best we can, but it’s hard.”

It's not that the hospitals have too many patients; it's that they are not allowed to employ perfectly capable (but unvaccinated) workers. Even if those workers were working there just last week.

Deliberate use of fear to control the populace

TelegraphOne SPI-B scientist told Ms Dodsworth: “In March [2020] the Government was very worried about compliance and they thought people wouldn’t want to be locked down. There were discussions about fear being needed to encourage compliance, and decisions were made about how to ramp up the fear. The way we have used fear is dystopian.

“The use of fear has definitely been ethically questionable. It’s been like a weird experiment. Ultimately, it backfired because people became too scared.”

Another member of SPI-B said they were "stunned by the weaponisation of behavioural psychology" during the pandemic, and that “psychologists didn’t seem to notice when it stopped being altruistic and became manipulative. They have too much power and it intoxicates them”.

Steve Baker, the deputy chairman of the Covid Recovery Group of Tory MPs, said: “If it is true that the state took the decision to terrify the public to get compliance with rules, that raises extremely serious questions about the type of society we want to become.

“If we’re being really honest, do I fear that Government policy today is playing into the roots of totalitarianism? Yes, of course it is.”

And it worked terrifyingly well.

Study shows increased heart attack risk from vaccine

Conservative TreehouseThe PULS (Protein Unstable Lesion Signature) test measures the most clinically significant protein biomarkers that leak from cardiac lesions in the blood vessel walls, providing a measure of the body’s immune system response to arterial injury.

The Gundy study, published 8 November 2021, included 566 patients, aged 28 to 97 years, in a preventive cardiology practice. Participants included men and women in equal proportions. All participants have received a PULS Cardiac Test every 3-6 months for 8 years, including “post-vaccination.”

The PULS Cardiac Test measures multiple protein biomarkers and uses the results to calculate a 5-year risk score for new ACS. From pre-Covid injection to post-Covid injection the 5-year ACS PULS risk score increased from 11% to 25%.

AHA JournalsRecently, with the advent of the mRNA COVID 19 vaccines (vac) by Moderna and Pfizer, dramatic changes in the PULS score became apparent in most patients.This report summarizes those results. These changes resulted in an increase of the PULS score from 11% 5 yr ACS risk to 25% 5 yr ACS risk. At the time of this report, these changes persist for at least 2.5 months post second dose of vac.We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.

Watch how quickly this study gets shouted down rather than carefully looked into.

Eleven of the cases were confirmed. The study has not yet been peer-reviewed, and researchers warn that it "should not be used to guide clinical practice."

A political crisis, not a medical one

Gateway PunditMaine Governor Janet Mills (D) on Wednesday activated the National Guard to staff hospitals after firing unvaccinated healthcare workers.

Recall, Governor Janet Mills in August announced that healthcare workers in Maine must be fully vaccinated by October 29.

Remember when the crisis was that COVID would overwhelm hospitals?

Remember when hospitals were NOT overwhelmed, and states like New York didn't even bother to make use of the hospital ship Trump sent?

Well, now that they want a crisis again, they are firing medical staff who refuse vaccination so they can create an emergency and call up the national guard to take the place of the staff they... just... fired?

How does that make sense, unless the real motivation is to create a crisis for political purposes?

NEJM: Spike antibodies from vaccine may cause side effects

Alex BerensonDownstream effects of the antibodies that people produce against the coronavirus spike protein may lead to myocarditis and even neurological concerns, two veteran medical researchers have written in the top medical journal in the United States.

Our immune systems produce these antibodies in response to both vaccination and natural infection with Covid. However - though the researchers do not say so explicitly, possibly because doing so would be politically untenable - spike protein antibody levels are MUCH higher following vaccination than infection. Thus the downstream response to vaccination may be more severe.

The NEJM published the short paper Wednesday in its Basic Implications of Clinical Observations series. One of the writers is an oncologist and professor at Harvard Medical School; the other is a cancer researcher who has his own lab at the University of California, Davis.

Some questions have been raised about the study. However, questions are raised about anything that questions vaccine safety or the official view of how to treat the virus. Basic medical ethics require that any questions of vaccine safety have to be thoroughly investigated and disproven (if in fact false) rather than simply dismissed.

The Deadly Vaccine

Alex BerensonI have checked the underlying dataset myself and this graph is correct. Vaccinated people under 60 are twice as likely to die as unvaccinated people. And overall deaths in Britain are running well above normal.

I don’t know how to explain this other than vaccine-caused mortality.

Meaning in HistoryThere was a perfect correlation between vaccine rates and excess mortality rates. In other words, the more you vax the more people die.

The correlation is + .31, is amazingly high and especially in an unexpected direction. Actually, it should be negative, so that one could say: The higher the vaccination rate, the lower the excess mortality. However, the opposite is the case and this urgently needs to be clarified. Excess mortality can be observed in all 16 countries. The number of Covid deaths reported by the RKI in the period under consideration consistently represents only a relatively small part of mortality and, above all, cannot explain the critical facts:

Vaccine mortality is one possible explanation. There are others. But taking the time to understand these risks, and allowing people to decide for themselves whether or not to take them, is a far more reasonable approach than insisting everyone must take the risk immediately.

Do COVID vaccines cause prion diseases?

Steve Kirsch There is no doubt the mRNA vaccines are causing prion diseases. People didn’t have these diseases before the shot and suddenly they develop them after the shot. There is no other explanation for this. None of the “fact checkers” can explain the cause of the excess rates. Prion diseases are incurable and always fatal. You can die as soon as 6 weeks after COVID vaccination (see within 6 weeks and within 6 months examples).

However, Twitter believes this is not true, but they refuse to tell anyone why they think that. Other fact checkers who have checked this out never did a VAERS query and are unable to explain away the “excess” number of reports other than doing a blanket dismissal that everything in VAERS is fraudulent without providing any evidence of that claim (other than one report out of 1.6M reports).

None of the fact checkers will debate on this to set the record straight.

I don't know, but I would like to know before getting vaccinated.

The Michigan UIA paid out billions in improper payments through three federal pandemic relief programs: Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, Pandemic Unemployment Compensation, and Lost Wages Assistance. PUC, through the federal CARES Act, boosted unemployment payments by $600 per week.

"Ultimately, UIA's application and weekly certification processes allowed individuals without any prior attachment to the workforce and who may have been unemployed for reasons unrelated to COVID-19 to be paid PUA and associated PUC and LWA program benefits improperly," Michigan Auditor General Doug Ringler reported in the audit.

Only a fool would assume this was unintentional.

Pfizer study shows vax may increase infection risk

Gateway PunditA former Pfizer employee, now working as a pharmaceutical marketing expert and biotech analyst, has provided evidence in a public meeting in September suggesting that Pfizer is aware that these shots can cause those vaccinated to be more prone to contracting COVID-19 and infections.

Whistleblower Karen Kingston, the former Pfizer employee appeared together with medical freedom rights attorney Thomas Renz who presented the data in a public meeting at Clay Clark’s ReAwaken America Tour.

The vaccine offers no protection

Daily ExposeThe UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) publish a weekly ‘Vaccine Surveillance’ report containing statistics on Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths by vaccination status across England over the past four weeks.

Their latest report, published Thursday November 25th covers data on infections, hospitalisations and deaths from Week 43 to Week 46 of 2021 (October 25th – November 21st).

The report reveals that there were 833,332 recorded Covid-19 cases, 9,094 Covid-19 hospitalisations and 3,700 Covid-19 deaths from October 25th to November 21st. Of these the unvaccinated accounted for 39% of all cases, 34% of all hospitalisations, and 19% of all deaths. Whilst the vaccinated accounted for 61% of all cases, 66% of all hospitalisations, and 81% of all deaths.

Natural immunity is quite effective.

Denying medical care over COVID

New York Governor Kathy Hochul halts elective surgery for Omicron variant. Note that this new variant isn't especially scary aside from the fact that the vaccines don't stop it (which also applies to the Delta variants and others). The real story is that there are "staffing shortages" caused by the vaccine mandate that she needs to find some explanation other than the vaccine mandate for.

Elsewhere in New York, legislation proposed to deny insurance to the unvaccinated.

Wisconsin election board failed to enforce election law

Conservative ReviewExplosive revelations in the Wisconsin Legislative Audit Bureau’s report on the 2020 presidential election confirm what many in the key swing state have long suspected: Those tasked with administering the election willfully ignored and openly violated state law.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC), the governmental body tasked with administering elections in Wisconsin, is comprised of six appointed commissioners, three from each political party, and a staff that reports to them. Critically, if the commissioners deadlock on an issue before them, no official action is taken and local authorities are left to interpret the recommendations of WEC’s staff.

As a result, the overwhelming majority of WEC’s decisions during the 2020 election cycle were essentially made by unelected, unappointed, and obviously left-leaning bureaucrats. Both they and the commissioners who oversee them were downright derelict in their duty to fairly and impartially supervise an election run by city and county clerks and poll workers who were not properly trained and did not receive accurate, lawful guidance.

What amazes me is that this took so long to come out. Shouldn't it have been known during the election? Or perhaps it was, and the Republicans in office failed to raise appropriate red flags?

Either way, we know it now, and there need to be prosecutions.

COVID must not become a way to enable election fraud going forward.

Colorado denies treatment to unvaccinated

Behind the BlackIt appears it wasn’t enough to ban one woman in Colorado from receiving a desperately needed kidney transplant because she and her donor had not gotten their COVID shots. Now, Jared Polis, the Democratic Party governor of Colorado, has told all hospitals in the state to ban everyone from getting treatment if they refuse to get the experimental drugs being touted, falsely, as vaccines against COVID.

The excuse is that hospitals are overwhelmed with the unvaccinated. I think it's more likely hospitals are overwhelmed because they have been required to fire their unvaccinated (but likely naturally immune at this point) workers.

For those fully behind the Democrat agenda on COVID... we are not very far at all from death camps. Where else does denial of all medical treatment over a disease with less than 1% fatality rate lead?

This letter was sent to several different members of Naval leadership as a template that could easily be updated with the letterhead and signature of the officer in charge of issuing a decision so they could quickly reject the incoming requests.

In this example, CAPT Marc Ratkus – the Commanding Officer of the Navy’s Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) – sent a copy of the ‘standard denial’ memo to CDR Meredith Schley, who is under his command, and instructed her to use it for “all requests” that she receives.

There will be a continuous need for boosting

Gateway PunditThere may be a need for endless Covid booster shots according to Moderna Chairman Noubar Afeyan.

“It may well need an annual booster, potentially varying on a year-to-year or every few years basis as the virus varies,” Afeyan told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo.

“We just don’t know how this virus is going to travel from being a pandemic all the way to potentially an endemic virus we have to get used to living with,” he said.

“I think if we end up there, there will be a continuous need for boosting,” he added.

Or, if you are younger than about 75 and reasonably healthy, you could rely on natural immunity after you recover from the disease once, and improve your chances of recovering with effective treatments like Ivermectin. That seems like a better idea than turning your immune system into a Big Pharma subscription service.

Biden admin begins initial text of vax mandate

Sharyl AttkissonThe U.S. Dept. of Labor reports today that the "initial text" of the "emergency temporary standard" for the federal vaccine mandates for private companies employing 100 or more workers has been "submitted" to the Office of Management and Budget as part of the rule process.

As reported on Full Measure, an adviser to the Biden administration says the rule is expected to allow companies to use a testing option instead of vaccination, but exemptions for natural immunity are not expected to be permitted. That is contrary to the bulk of scientific consensus, which finds natural immunity provides as good as, and likely far better, protection than the current vaccines.

For those of us hoping this would be a paperless tiger that would never actually be issued in enforceable fashion, it's a bit disappointing to hear that the process has begun. On the other hand, actual legal challenges can be issued.

Smoking gun evidence of deliberate COVID release by Fauci?

Gateway PunditMichael Specter: Why don’t we blow the system up? I mean obviously, we can’t just turn off the spigot on the system. We have and then say, hey everyone in the world should get this new vaccine that we haven’t given to anyone yet. But there must be some way that we grow vaccines mostly in eggs the way we did in 1947.

Fauci: In order to make the transition from getting out of the tried-and-true egg growing which we know gives us results that can be beneficial, I mean we’ve done well with that. There must be something that has to be much better. You have to prove that this works and then you’ve got to go through all of the clinical trials: phase 1, phase 2, phase 3, and then show that this particular product is going to be good over a period of years. That alone, if it works perfectly, it’s going to take a decade.

Bright: There might be a need or even an urgent call for an entity of excitement out there that’s completely disruptive, that’s not beholden to bureaucratic strings and processes.

Fauci: So we really do have a problem of how the world perceives influenza and it’s going to be very difficult to change that unless you do it from within and save.. I don’t care what your perception is, we’re going to address the problem in a disruptive and in an iterative way because she does need both.

Bright: But it is not too crazy to think that an outbreak of novel avian virus could occur in China somewhere. We could get the RNA sequence from that.. to a number of regional centers if not local, if not even in your home at some point, and print those vaccines on a patch of self-administer.

The video claims to be from October 2019, broadcast on C-SPAN2. Coupled with what we know already -- that the virus was being worked on in Wuhan, for gain of function research funded by Fauci -- this seems like a smoking gun for a deliberate release by Fauci or those allied with him. Maybe that's Chinese researchers or military. Maybe it's someone else. Details remain unclear. But Fauci has, in this video, done the villain monologue where he explains that he was behind everything all along.

Threatening doctors who offer their own opinions about COVID

WBIRThe Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners adopted a new policy that could result in disciplinary actions for physicians who spread misinformation and disinformation about COVID-19 vaccines, according to reports.

The 12-member board signed off on the policy on Sept. 21. It would keep physicians accountable for violating practice standards by suspending or revoking their licenses.

The official said they decided to sign the policy because "spreading inaccurate COVID-19 vaccine information contradicts" doctors' responsibilities. They also said it threatens to erode public trust in the medical profession, putting all patients at risk.

Anyone who wants to file a complaint against a health care professional can submit a form online or call the Office of Investigations at 800-852-2187.

Because asking patients to report their doctors for giving medical advice the patients think is politically inconvenient just makes so much sense. And by publicizing the fact that you can get your doctor's license revoked for giving out politically disfavored information, you're only establishing that no one on either side can believe anything the doctor says.

Chicago police union to defy vaccine mandate

PJMediaThe first major test of a vaccine mandate applied to municipal employees will take place this weekend in Chicago, where up to half of the city’s police force is set to defy the mandate by failing to report their vaccine status.

Officers and other city employees who fail to report their vaccination status by Friday will “be placed in a non-disciplinary, no pay status,” according to the mayor’s office.

“It’s safe to say that the city of Chicago will have a police force at 50% or less for this weekend coming up,” said Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara. He added, “I do not believe the city has the authority to mandate that to anybody — let alone that information about your medical history.” The union has filed suit against the city to halt enforcement of the mandate.

On the one hand, this will be very hard to ignore or write off as meaningless. On the other, one of the Democratic objectives was defunding the police, and this would be one way to accomplish that and avoid taking the blame for it.

Just The NewsDozens of Massachusetts state troopers have submitted their resignation papers as a result of the state's COVID-19 vaccine mandate, a union official says.

This is obviously a very difficult decision for people. I applaud those willing to stand on principle. However, it's also exactly according to plan. It's a purge. The police who remain are that much more loyal, and those who left no longer have jobs or financial resources.

For the people running the pandemic, it's a win-win.

Hospital staff being forced out by vaccine mandate

Just The NewsHospitals and longterm care facilities in New York are preparing for the possibility that the statewide coronavirus vaccine mandate for healthcare workers, which goes into effect Monday, could lead to staff shortages.

Medical professionals, and support staff including food service employees and cleaning crew staff, have until the September 27 to receive their first COVID-19 jab. With mere days left until that deadline, many workers still had not received a shot, leaving open the possibility of thousands of health care workers losing their jobs next week.

Remember this when the news starts bitching about hospitals being closed because they are full of COVID patients.

CDC overrides FDA advisory committee to approve boosters

Conservative TreehouseCenters for Disease Control (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky has overridden the recommendations of the FDA vaccine advisory committee and authorized booster shots for individuals who took the Pfizer vaccine. The boosters are for anyone who took the Pfizer vaccine six months ago or more, in addition to all those with underlying medical health conditions that make them susceptible to the COVID-19 variants.

They don't care about the "science". Whatever the reason they are pushing this vaccine so hard, it's not out of concern for your health.

New York firing healthcare workers who won't take the vaccine

Conservative TreehouseThe deadline for New York healthcare workers to take the mandatory COVID-19 “vaccine” is Monday. A significant number of nurses, healthcare workers and those who work within the entire system of healthcare will be leaving the medical industry as a result.

While the potential vacancy rate for healthcare workers is yet undetermined -they have to wait to see how many actually leave- New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced earlier today that foreign workers will be hired to replace the U.S. workers who refuse the vaccine.

In a semi-related note, controversial New York Health Commissioner Harold Zucker -a former defender of Andrew Cuomo- announced his resignation a few hours before Governor Hochul made the announcement about replacing missing NY healthcare staff with foreign workers.

Remember this when they tell you the hospitals are stressed with COVID patients.

And ask yourself why so many healthcare workers aren't interested in taking it, to the point of losing their jobs.

Australia: Leaders threatened, lobbied for vaccine mandates

Gateway PunditA former Australian member of Parliament came out and said Pfizer and AstraZeneca are paying lobbyists to direct Australia’s leaders to push vaccine mandates.

Clive Palmer, leader of the United Australia Party claimed ousted New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian was told she wouldn’t be charged in a corruption probe if she imposed a vaccine mandate.

Palmer made these statements a couple weeks ago but it has garnered a lot of attention this weekend after Berejiklian resigned in disgrace following a corruption probe.

Two weeks ago, Palmer said Pfizer and AstraZeneca were paying lobbyists tens of millions of dollars to direct Australia’s liberal leaders to push the double jab.

According to Palmer, Berejiklian, who was under a corruption probe by the ICAC at the time, was told if she imposed strict lockdowns and vaccine mandates, she wouldn’t be charged.

Medical license boards threaten dissenters

PJMediaThe Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) recently issued a statement about how doctors must communicate with patients about COVID-19 vaccines. The FSMB is a non-profit organization that represents the medical boards of the individual states and territories. The state boards license medical doctors, investigate complaints, and mete out disciplinary action. The statement is an astonishing bit of medical authoritarianism that should terrify patients expecting to receive informed consent and have an honest discussion with their doctors about COVID-19

If you want to convince people, stop punishing people who disagree with you. As soon as word of this gets out, everyone who hears it will immediately discount any pro-vaccine speaker with a medical license. As well they should.

Whistleblower claims China spread COVID intentionally

Daily MailA whistleblower has sensationally claimed China deliberately spread Covid at a military tournament two months before the rest of the world knew about the deadly virus.

Ex-Chinese Communist Party insider Wei Jingsheng said The World Military Games in October 2019 could have acted as the virus' first superspreader event.

The international tournament for military athletes was held in Wuhan - the origin of the Covid-19 pandemic - two months before China notified the World Health Organisation about its first cases.

This wouldn't surprise me.

About those vaccine passports we weren't going to get

Just The NewsVirginia residents who have received COVID-19 vaccinations can now obtain QR codes, which can be scanned to verify the person’s vaccine information, the state Department of Health announced.

A person can obtain his or her unique QR code on the Vaccinate Virginia website and provide it as proof of vaccination if needed by an employer or other business. The system, which has been adopted by four other states, was launched in response to growing vaccine mandates, partially spurred by President Joe Biden’s announcement that he will require businesses with 100 or more workers to get every employee vaccinated or provide the unvaccinated with weekly COVID-19 testing.

Are we really going to ask government permission before leaving our homes, working at our jobs, entering a restaurant?

VAERS undercounting COVID vaccine adverse events

Gateway PunditDr. Mollie James, the courageous COVID whistleblower who has come forward denouncing the Biden vaccine mandates, has shockingly claimed that the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, known as VAERS, the national database that tracks complications and side effects from vaccines, is so widely underused that the real number of COVID vaccine complications is more than 100 times what is currently being reported.

People have said to me, "You should get vaccinated because the risk of an adverse event from the vaccine, while higher than many other vaccines, is still lower than the risk from COVID." This may be true, if the information we have about vaccine risk is accurate. I take the position that the risk of COVID is relatively low for me personally, and the risk of taking the vaccine is currently unknown, particularly over the long term and with multiple boosters as COVID variants develop.

My position, therefore, on both the vaccines and COVID mitigation policies (masks, lockdowns, etc) is simple.

Stop lying to me about the data, and then we can talk about whether your strategies make any sense. Until the lying stops, I will not comply.

FDA rejects Pfizer boosters

Conservative TreehouseThe Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory group who evaluate the efficacy and safety of vaccines have rejected the request for Pfizer booster shots. However, the White House -desperately trying to push as many needle jabs as possible- was already on track to being giving booster shots this month. The implication here is that the White House was not following the recommendations of the FDA or the science.

The COVID control narrative is falling apart, it seems. We'll see if the employee mandates also fall apart, or just never materialize with legal force.

The meaning of the FDA resignations

BrownstoneHow significant is it that the two top FDA officials responsible for vaccine research resigned last week and this week signed a letter in The Lancet that strongly warns against vaccine boosters? This is a remarkable sign that the project of government-managed virus mitigation is in the final stages before falling apart.

The booster has already been promoted by top lockdown advocates Neil Ferguson of Imperial College and Anthony Fauci of NIH, even in the face of rising public incredulity toward their “expert” advice. For these two FDA officials to go on record with grave doubts – and their perspective is certainly backed by the unimpressive booster experience in Israel – introduces a major break in the narrative that the experts in charge deserve our trust and deference.

What’s at stake here? It’s about more than the boosters. It’s about the whole experience of taking away the control of health management from individuals and medical professionals and handing it over to modelers and government officials with coercive power.

The bottom line: The vaccines don't work, the boosters don't work, and taking them may cause harm.

Hospital forced to fire 200 employees over vaccine mandate

The College FixIU Health, the largest health care provider in Indiana, has announced it suspended close to 300 employees who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 or have not gotten an exemption.

The provider specified Friday it was “approximately 280” individuals who were suspended on Wednesday. The suspension is to last two weeks, during which those employees can either get the vaccine or request an exemption. Those who have not complied with the company’s vaccine mandate after the two-week suspension are to be fired.

DivemedicThe Biden Administration, through the Federal Department of Health and Human Services, has cut off the shipment of monoclonal antibodies to Texas, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, Louisiana and Alabama because of a claimed shortage. The federal government and mainstream media are promoting the restriction as “staving off shortages” due to “dwindling supplies.”

However, you will note that all seven of the states have Republican governors. One of those, Florida, is the governor that Biden threatened just last week.

Hospital closures already starting because of vaccine mandate

Just The NewsThe CEO of a hospital in Texas is cautioning that his facility is facing possible closure following President Biden's announcement last week that healthcare workers will be required to receive the Covid-19 vaccination.

If the mandate takes effect, the Brownfield Regional Medical Center will likely lose 20-25% of its staff, according to CEO Jerry Jasper. Without those employees, the hospital will likely shut down.

Already in upstate New York, an official for one hospital said the facility is going to have to close down its maternity unit for the time being because so many employees resigned over former Governor Andrew Cuomo's vaccine mandate for healthcare workers. The mandate was temporarily halted on Tuesday by a federal judge in New York.

Democrats really do have trouble predicting the second and third order consequences of their stupid policy ideas. Mandate vaccines for everyone, especially people working in health care, to keep the hospitals operating rather than overflowing from COVID? Great! But now it's uh-oh they don't want the vaccines so much they their jobs in healthcare, and the hospitals have to shut down.

Fauci's modified viruses more dangerous

Daily SignalAmerican and Chinese researchers funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s federal agency created viruses in a Wuhan lab that exhibited over 10,000 times higher viral load in humanized mice than the natural viruses they were based on, another expert in infectious diseases says, citing newly released documents.

The U.S. nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance notified Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in two reports that between June 2017 and May 2018 it had created three lab-generated chimeric SARS-related coronaviruses in China that exhibited “significantly higher” viral loads, documents first reported by The Intercept show. But Fauci’s agency continued to fund the project with taxpayer dollars without flagging it for review by an independent committee created in late 2017 to oversee so-called gain-of-function research.

Fauci's support for this dangerous research should disqualify him from any position of trust ever again. Hell, it probably should put him in jail, considering he was funding Chinese bioweapon research.

Sen Warren calls for Amazon to censor books

Red StateIf you were to make a proposal that a politician should go about calling to take down published works, the initial reaction from many would be to recoil and issue a rebuke. The concept of the government seeking to silence select individuals runs contrary to our core beliefs. Yet we have a politician currently calling to take that very action, and the response is so vacant that you have to wonder how far we as a nation have drifted.

Senator Elizabeth Warren has undertaken a cause against Amazon that should deliver a chill instantly, whether you have a Prime membership or not. In the tradition of her party always looking to leverage a crisis, Warren is targeting the monolithic retailer to take action and restrict access to products, in the name of pandemic protections. This does have a veil of propriety in that she mentions concerns with potential counterfeit medical supplies, but then she resorts to overreach as she also wants to restrict published works under the same guise of safety.

Australia goes to hell

Conservative TreehousePremier Gladys Berejiklian has announced that once the state achieves 70% double-vaccinated status, citizens within the region will be given some freedom from the lock-down situation. The details of the freedom will be announced later; however, only vaccinated people will be permitted to participate.

The announcement from NSW followed their release of the latest COVID stats showing eight people had died of “covid-related health issues” in the past 24 hours. Two men in their nineties, two people in their eighties and three people in their seventies, died in hospital. According to the Health Minister, all of them had “pre-existing medical issues and conditions.”

Following the nationwide standard, every citizen will be required to download their proof of vaccine into their personal “QR Code” on their phone. This digital identification will be scanned at the entrances of all businesses, offices, workplaces, and venues that require entry to participate in society. This process is called “check in”, and will be monitored by the national and state governing authority who will enforce protocols for tracking each individual citizen.

What's going down in Australia is really, really scary.

Australia goes to hell

Bayou Renaissance ManFor a great free democracy, Australia has sunk so far into the depths that one has to wonder whether freedom and democracy have any place in its future at all.

We should take note of what's happening in Australia, because the progressive left would love to make similar things happen over here. There's nothing they would like more than to turn America into a statist's wet dream, an Orwellian society in which everything is controlled, residents can do only what is explicitly permitted, and anything not explicitly permitted is automatically forbidden.

Conservative TreehousePeople wonder why they should be paying attention to what happens in Australia. Well, quite simply, if you can identify where the test facility is for technology to merge with totalitarian objectives, it becomes valuable to follow what they do – and then predict what the future might look like for you. Australia and New Zealand are testing the parameters of merging the objectives of the control state with technology and citizen compliance.

Bayou Renaissance ManSpecifically, the proposed fiscal 2022 budget would require banks and other financial institutions to report to the IRS on the deposits and withdrawals of all business and personal accounts with a balance of more than $600.

So, in other words, they want to know where you are at all times, and force you to do check-ins on demand, and know every single financial transaction you make in your whole life. It was barely a decade ago that Obama used the IRS to target his political opponents, and with his team in Biden's Whitehouse, it will happen all over again -- only infinitely worse.

Understanding vaccine hesitancy

Tablet MagazineThe same people who told you Brexit would never happen, that Trump would never win, that when he did win it was because of Russian collusion but also because of racism, that you must follow lockdowns while they don’t, that masks don’t work, that masks do work, that social justice protests during pandemic lockdowns are a form of “health intervention,” that ransacking African American communities in the name of fighting racism is a “mostly peaceful” form of protest, that poor and underserved children locked out of shuttered schools are “still learning,” that Jussie Smollett was a victim of a hate crime, that men are toxic, that there is an infinite number of genders, that COVID couldn’t have come from a lab until maybe it did, that closing borders is racist until maybe it isn’t, that you shouldn’t take Trump’s vaccine, that you must take the vaccine developed during the Trump administration, that Andrew Cuomo is a great leader, that Andrew Cuomo is a granny killer, that the number of COVID deaths is one thing and then another … are the same people telling you now that the vaccine is safe, that you must take it, and that if you don’t, you will be a second-class citizen.

Understand vaccine hesitancy now?

This is not how I arrived at vaccine hesitancy (or to be more honest, outright refusal) but it is part of it. I simply don't trust anything being pushed so hard, and when I evaluate the actual risks of the disease, it's just not scary (to me, at my age and general state of health). A vaccine is simply not necessary for the vast majority of the population at low risk even if they get the disease; and there are available treatment options if you do get it. And that's before you consider the risks of the vaccine itself (particularly antibody-dependent enhancement).

So my answer is and will be no, and that's not based on the way that health officials, media, and government collectively have squandered every bit of trust they ever had.

Of course, that doesn't help their case either.

Vaccine studies lose control groups

NPRTens of thousands of people who volunteered to be in studies of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are still participating in follow-up research. But some key questions won't be easily answered, because many people who had been in the placebo group have now opted to take the vaccine.

I understand the logical reasoning that lead to this decision. The argument is that it would be inhumane to deny the vaccine just to continue the study.

The counterargument is that COVID is an extremely mild and easily treatment disease in the vast majority of cases. The vast majority of the harm is in the social panic, not the disease.

And now, if the vaccine itself causes harm, it will be that much more difficult to find out.

Gateway PunditAustralia is sending troops to help local police enforce the new Covid lockdown in Sydney.

Australia’s largest city went into a hard lockdown – again – last Saturday amid rising Covid cases.

Beginning Monday, 300 troops will patrol Sydney and knock on doors to make sure people are following orders to stay at home.

So, these troops who will be going door to door making sure people are at home?

They're inevitably going to be spreading the disease across all of those homes. They get it from someone on their route, incubate for a day or two, and then start spreading it to everyone whose doors they knock on later.

This is a colossal failure of policy for containing a disease.

For spreading it? Less so.

And it's perfect to take another big step towards totalitarianism by using the military to enforce a total lockdown of society.

Biden Admin released COVID-positive illegal aliens in Texas

Fox NewsAuthorities in South Texas said Tuesday they've learned that illegal immigrants who have possibly tested positive for COVID-19 were being released from federal custody to a Catholic charity, which booked hotel rooms for them without notifying local officials.

The La Joya Police Department said a patrol officer was waved down Monday by someone concerned about a group that appeared to be sick at a Whataburger fast food restaurant. The officer found a family inside who were coughing and sneezing and not adhering to health guidelines, including the wearing of masks, authorities said during a news conference.

A manager told the officer they wanted the people to leave the establishment because they were making everyone inside "uneasy." When the officer approached the migrants, they said they had tested positive for the coronavirus and had been apprehended by Border Patrol agents several days prior before being released.

Given the official Biden administration panic level about COVID, this can only be viewed as a deliberate attempt to spread COVID in Texas (and likely other red states).

I'm not personally worried about COVID much, but if we know these people are sick, and we know they are here illegally, why are we turning them loose to infect other people? Why not send them back?

Biden Admin directing Big Tech censorship efforts on COVID

It's one thing for Big Tech to decide, on their own, to "fact check" and suppress free speech on a topic. I believe that to be improper, but legally difficult to challenge. Most legal protections for free speech are based around government being the bad actor, with the infamous section 230 of the Communications Decency Act being an outlier. That section extends immunity from lawsuit to companies that decide to be "platforms" for user speech, as distinct from companies that are making editorial decisions about what to publish.

I believe that Big Tech has definitely stepped over the line into making editorial decisions, thus removing those legal protections. Cases are moving through the courts that will likely decide that.

But, it appears another front has just been opened. In separate situations, Big Tech appears to have colluded with Big Government (both the Biden Administration after the election and state government officials before the election) in censoring topics and specific posts that government officials requested be censored.

They are even asking for cross-platform censorship based on those government requests.

Legal InsurrectionPSAKI: “You shouldn’t be banned from one platform and not others if you — for providing misinformation out there, taking faster action against harmful post. As you all know, information travels quite quickly. If it’s up there for days and days and days, when people see it, you know there’s — it’s hard to put that back in a box. And of course promoting algorithms. I don’t know how they work but they all do know how they work. So, those are some of the steps that we think could be constructive for public health, for public information, for public — you know, the right of the public to know.”

They are putting action behind their words by seeking to get cell phone providers to read and censor your text messaging.

This will likely prove to be a dramatic mistake, as now the full force of the 1st Amendment protections against government censorship can be brought to bear.

In a nation that once considered freedom of speech a founding principle, the demands for censorship from the current regime are breathtaking.

Questioning the timing

Conservative TreehouseSUMMARY: President Obama (not Trump) started the reauthorization of SARS-CoV-2 Virus experimentation in 2017. The funding of the Wuhan Lab for the creation of SARS-CoV-2 was originated during the Obama administration and continued during the Trump administration. The scientific community, the Obama White House and National Security Team, and the Pentagon knew the dangers of funding the weaponization of a biological weapon from SARS. The COVID-19 pandemic was an outcome of these originating decisions.

…. and yes, there are political and ideological benefits from the perspective of Obama’s ideological group for unleashing the SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic as an opportunistic “crisis” to create totalitarian government solutions regardless of who was in office. However, the timing of the subsequent biological release is very suspicious in relation to the 2020 presidential election and the downstream benefits of manipulating the election via mail-in ballots.

Lots of suspicious coincidences here, especially given that we already know of other efforts in the final days of the Obama administration to screw Trump.

Chinese defector alleges COVID-19 was military bioweapons program

RedStateOne week ago we reported that a man believed to be the highest-ranking Chinese defector ever was working with the Defense Intelligence Agency and that he had direct knowledge of special weapons programs in China, including bioweapons programs. We also reported that the defector provided an extensive, technically detailed debrief to US officials, that the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) was able to corroborate very technical details of the information provided, and that in DIA’s assessment, the information provided by the defector is legitimate.

RedState has now learned some details of the information provided by the defector, including that he provided data proving that SARS-CoV-2 was manmade and leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, in addition to evidence confirming that the People’s Liberation Army managed the Wuhan program (and others), as Chinese virologist Yan Li-Meng told the FBI last year.

This is going to make it very difficult for the Biden administration to kowtow to China.

Youtube censorship regime continues

The FederalistGoogle’s YouTube has stepped up its draconian censorship of a sitting U.S. senator.

The powerful video-sharing company removed a video of a speech given by Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and banned him from uploading new videos for at least seven days. The action took place several months after YouTube removed two videos of testimony given at a hearing he hosted of the Senate’s Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on the topic of early treatment of COVID-19.

In the video YouTube censors are prohibiting the public from viewing, Johnson took bureaucrats in the Trump and Biden administrations to task for “not only ignoring but working against robust research [on] the use of cheap, generic drugs to be repurposed for early treatment of COVID.”

The arrogance of Big Tech is insufferable.

How much of it was driven by government demands?

Fauci emails released

Conservative TreehouseEmails to/from National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci have been released to both Buzzfeed and the Washington Post. The time frame of the release is January 2020 to mid-June 2020.

Within the emails we discover, Fauci had some urgent, time sensitive discussions about “gain of function” research; the weaponization of the COVID virus. Fauci also told colleagues “retail masks don’t work” as protection from COVID due to the molecular size of the virus. Also the emails reveal that Anthony Fauci was very well aware the outbreak came from a possible lab leak.

Additionally, there is a warning from a scientist inside the NIH who warned Fauci that China was lying about virus, death rates, spread and data. A hubris filled Dr Fauci responded to the internal warning by telling the physicist his email was “too long for me to read.”… Yeah, think about that.

This email release has exposed Fauci as a liar and a cover-up artist.

Study shows dramatic effectiveness of HCQ/AZM on COVID

Conservative TreehouseLast year President Trump advocated for Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Azithromycin (AZM), two readily available drugs, in the treatment of COVID patients who worsened with the respiratory illness to the point of Invasive Medical Ventilation (IVM). The media proclaimed the presidential advice was wrong, and the medical establishment undermined the administration’s advocacy. Now a study shows treatment with those medicines would have led to many saved lives.

Why was this treatment option suppressed in favor of experimental vaccines?

Proof Fauci was paying the Wuhan Institute of Virology directly

Judicial WatchJudicial Watch today announced that it obtained 280 pages of documents from the Department of Health and Human Services revealing that from 2014 to 2019, $826,277 was given to the Wuhan Institute of Virology for bat coronavirus research by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci.

This is just the direct funding. I wouldn't be surprised if there is quite a bit more. But $200,000 a year will pay for a researcher and some graduate students easily.

It seems certain at this point we, American taxpayers, paid for the coronavirus to be developed and eventually "leaked". Possibly as a deliberate bioweapon.

And Fauci admitted he knew things might leak.

RedStateA person believed to be among the highest-ranking defectors ever to the United States from the People’s Republic of China has been working with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) for months, sources inside the intelligence community have told RedState on condition of anonymity. The defector has direct knowledge of special weapons programs in China, including bioweapons programs, those sources say.

This information could have huge consequences if those bioweapon programs are related to COVID.

Notably, the defector's existence was concealed from the CIA and FBI (even director Wray) due to concerns those agencies were compromised by China.

Was the Wuhan Flu a political act?

Conservative TreehouseOkay, straight talk. This discovery makes the suspicions of an intentionally released Pandemic virus, with a political intent, to “STOP TRUMP” look exponentially more plausible. SARS = Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, the deadly consequence within COVID-19.

With people beginning to recognize that U.S. government officials and the intelligence community have been less than honest, and in some cases downright lying, surrounding the origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus; and when we overlay the political motives in the background of mass narrative deflection from media and other institutions; and when we consider the known lengths that people inside the U.S. government were willing to go in their efforts to eliminate President Trump; discovering that President Obama’s administration technically authorized the restart of “gain of function” research (biological weaponization of SARS virus) just days before President Trump took office… is way more than alarming.

It's patently clear that the response was hugely politicized. The remaining questions are whether the release itself was deliberate and planned by US political actors, or whether political advantage was taken of an unexpected event. Note that there is a distinction between the possibility that China released the virus deliberately, and that China collaborated with US political actors in doing so.

Why Fauci is finally being blamed for his role in COVID

Conservative TreehousePerhaps the last half of this interview explains why the mainstream media are now willing to let Anthony Fauci take the heat for the Wuhan Bio-Lab leak. The entire interview with Australian investigative journalist Sharri Markson is well worth watching. The first major point was how Anthony Fauci was arguing against scientific consensus to keep allowing “gain of function” biological experimentation with deadly viruses. Fauci advocated for weaponization research in 2012, the scientific community was against it because of the inherent risks.

The second major point was President Obama stopping gain of function research in 2014 due to the global risk of a leak from a lab. Then in 2017, in the first year of the Trump administration, unbeknownst to senior officials in the administration, NIH Director Anthony Fauci pushed through a restart of the dangerous research.

Obama stopping and Fauci unilaterally starting would explain why the media are willing to step aside and let Fauci take the fall. Defending and protecting President Obama are the primary objectives of the MSM and operatives embedded in the administrative state. Now the sudden shift makes sense. Those in the umbrella intelligence apparatus knew this type of investigative evidence was going to surface.

With Trump out of office, Fauci is no longer useful. Under the bus he goes, but in his case, richly deserved.

How is this superior to simply testing those who enter the country for COVID?

Facebook backs down and stops censoring virus origin claims

Just The NewsFacebook will no longer eliminate posts that allege coronavirus is man-made or manufactured.

"In light of ongoing investigations into the origin of COVID-19 and in consultation with public health experts, we will no longer remove the claim that COVID-19 is man-made or manufactured from our apps," the company said on Wednesday. "We’re continuing to work with health experts to keep pace with the evolving nature of the pandemic and regularly update our policies as new facts and trends emerge."

The move represents an about-face for the social media giant which announced in February that it would start removing posts that made such claims.

Why such intense interest in censoring discussion of virus origination claims, a hugely significant step for Facebook? Why were these particular claims so important to shut down? Why the sudden and embarrassing about face?

CDC misrepresented study on outdoor transmission to incite panic

ReasonAfter Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was criticized for grossly exaggerating the risk of outdoor COVID-19 transmission, she said she was relying on a study published in "one of our top infectious disease journals." But as I noted a couple of weeks ago, Walensky misrepresented that study, which was published by The Journal of Infectious Diseases in February, in several significant ways. Today New York Times columnist David Leonhardt, who first called attention to Walensky's hyperbole, reports that a co-author of the study agrees the CDC director's gloss was misleading.

I don't see what other purpose this misrepresentation could have had besides inciting panic and making people afraid to go outdoors.

Chinese professor admits to biological war against US

Gateway PunditA senior member of a Chinese Communist Party think tank claimed China won a biological war against the United States in 2020.

The mainstream media is finally catching up with conservative media and reporting that Covid-19 originated in a Wuhan lab.

Covid-19 was then unleashed on the world to cripple western nations, especially the United States.

Ping Chen, a professor of National Development at Peking University in Beijing said China “put the US back in its place.”

Many of the things coming out of China about their virus seem, especially in retrospect, to be obvious propaganda in support of a biological warfare attack. I mean -- obsessive mask buying, then obsessive mask wearing, then obsessive mask selling for huge markups? Masks are useless against this virus; but it sure made a great economic play, didn't it? Videos of people passing out on the street? COVID doesn't do that. Anal swabs leading to penguin waddles? Now you're just shitting me...

COVID is Biden's slush fund

PoliticoThe Department of Health and Human Services has diverted more than $2 billion meant for other health initiatives toward covering the cost of caring for unaccompanied immigrant children, as the Biden administration grapples with a record influx of migrants on the southern border.

The redirected funds include $850 million that Congress originally allocated to rebuild the nation’s Strategic National Stockpile, the emergency medical reserve strained by the Covid-19 response. Another $850 million is being taken from a pot intended to help expand coronavirus testing, according to three people with knowledge of the matter.

I guess all those COVID spending bills were just to prepare a slush fund for Biden, not actually address COVID.

PoliticoThe reshuffling, which HHS detailed to congressional appropriators in notices over the last two months, illustrates the extraordinary financial toll that sheltering more than 20,000 unaccompanied children has taken on the department so far this year, as it scrambled to open emergency housing and add staff and services across the country.

For $100,000 per kid, you could buy them a house. Each.

Online censorship

City JournalAt the end of a recent 800-meter race in Oregon, a high school runner named Maggie Williams got dizzy, passed out, and landed face-first just beyond the finish line. She and her coach blamed her collapse on a deficit of oxygen due to the mask she’d been forced to wear, and state officials responded to the public outcry by easing their requirements for masks during athletic events. But long before the pandemic began, scientists had repeatedly found that wearing a mask could lead to oxygen deprivation. Why had this risk been ignored?

One reason is that a new breed of censors has been stifling scientific debate about masks on social media platforms. When Scott Atlas, a member of the White House’s coronavirus task force, questioned the efficacy of masks last year, Twitter removed his tweet. When eminent scientists from Stanford and Harvard recently told Florida governor Ron DeSantis that children should not be forced to wear masks, YouTube removed their video discussion from its platform. These acts of censorship were widely denounced, but the social media science police remain undeterred, as I discovered when I recently wrote about the harms to children from wearing masks.

It's a glimpse inside the censorship process.

Texas: A living counterexample

Newsweekexas Governor Greg Abbott caught heat from Democratic lawmakers when he announced on March 2 this year he would fully reopen the state by the next week. Mississippi lawmakers declared a similar reopening plan about the same time.

The idea was to get more people acclimated back to normal life, including businesses at full capacity and sports arenas full of fans again. For Texas, the governor wanted businesses back at 100 percent and placed filled up again, from school halls to dance halls.

President Joe Biden called such reopening plans as "Neanderthals thinking."

On Sunday, just a couple of hours after a major PGA event in Dallas and the NCAA FCS college football national championship in Frisco, Abbott reported that the state had no COVID-related deaths the previous 24 hours, and that the seven-day positivity rate was the lowest it's been since records have been taken—which was March 2020.

In other news, Newsweek appears to sense a market opportunity in Fox's recent decision to stop catering to its viewers.

The runner up is a deliberate leak of the same engineered and funded virus.

Fauci's emails expose him

PJMedia“A months long Vanity Fair investigation, interviews with more than 40 people, and a review of hundreds of pages of U.S. government documents, including internal memos, meeting minutes, and email correspondence, found that conflicts of interest, stemming in part from large government grants supporting controversial virology research, hampered the U.S. investigation into COVID-19’s origin at every step. In one State Department meeting, officials seeking to demand transparency from the Chinese government say they were explicitly told by colleagues not to explore the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s gain-of-function research, because it would bring unwelcome attention to U.S. government funding of it.”

Fauci was lying about the whole thing to cover up for his own involvement in funding gain of function research at Wuhan. And he was clearly using the resulting pandemic as a political lever to destroy Trump's economy and prevent Trump's re-election.

Still uncertain: whether the virus leaked by accident, or was deliberately released, and if the latter, who was involved in the decision to release it.

Fake News about coronavirus statistics in Florida

National ReviewThis is a story about Rebekah Jones, a former dashboard manager at the Florida Department of Health (FDOH), who has single-handedly managed to convince millions of Americans that Governor Ron DeSantis has been fudging the state’s COVID-19 data.

It has been repeated by others, sure: by partisans across the Internet, by unscrupulous Florida Democrats such as Nikki Fried and Charlie Crist, and on television, by MSNBC in particular. But it flows from a single place: Rebekah Jones. To understand that is to understand the whole game. This is about Jones, and Jones alone. If she falls, it falls.

And boy does it deserve to fall.

Funny how everyone in the media was so desperate to use her claims to attack Republicans (Trump and DeSantis) for keeping Florida open, rather than investigating her claims.

What part of the COVID virus creates the disease's effects?

Daily PunditAn explosive new study by researchers at the prestigious Salk Institute casts doubt on the current crop of gene-based vaccines that may pose a grave risk to public health. The article, which is titled “The novel coronavirus’ spike protein plays additional key role in illness”, shows that SARS-CoV-2’s “distinctive ‘spike’ protein”..”damages cells, confirming COVID-19 as a primarily vascular disease.” While the paper focuses strictly on Covid-related issues, it unavoidably raises questions about the new vaccines that contain billions of spike proteins that could greatly increase the chances of severe illness or death.

Concerning. If the spike protein creates the risk, then all the "vaccines" that cause the cells to manufacture said spike protein are basically giving the recipient a new, potentially dangerous disease. It may be less dangerous than the original... or not.

A simple cure for COVID?

WATEDrugmaker Pfizer is currently testing a single pill cure for COVID-19, and if all goes well, the drug could be available this year.

The drug, called PF-07321332, is currently in a Phase One clinical trial with healthy adults.

According to the Telegraph, the protease inhibitor may be available as soon as this year.

The pill was unveiled at the American Chemical Society Spring 2021 meeting in early April. The drug works by targeting the main protease of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. By inhibiting the protease, the drug prevents the virus from reproducing itself within the body...

Protease inhibitors are currently used to treat HIV around the world.

If this is accurate, there's no need to push the questionable vaccinations.

It's that last sentence that bugs me. Fauci spent decades trying and failing to solve the HIV problem. That this application is coming from that field makes me wonder how he is involved and profiting from the situation.

And if you read closely, this doesn't read like a cure. It may prevent replication and thus major symptoms. But you'll have to buy it again and again each time you get the virus. (Assuming you even notice). Will it interfere with natural immunity developing?

Even with all of the above caveats, it's good to have options.

Paying social media influencers to push the vaccine

Michelle MalkinOne Instagram star and fashion blogger with 409,000 followers, South Carolina entrepreneur Whitney Rife Becker, spilled the beans on how “two vaccine campaigns paying thousands of dollars” had contacted her to “go and get the vaccine and record it and take a selfie while getting the vaccine.” She was asked to tell her followers how “excited” she was to take the vaccine and to gush about “how much she would be able to do” once she submitted to her shots. She was promised that an unnamed entity would “put money behind” her Instagram videos or photo posts if she boosted the COVID vaccine.

Becker rejected the offers, but many others have accepted the bribery. Sometimes, the quid pro quos mean cash. In other cases, the rewards mean VIP treatment. In Florida, Miami’s Jackson Health System threw vaccine parties for social media influencers who agreed to write positive posts or produce videos about getting the Pfizer vaccine. While there was “no payment made to any influencer,” the Internet stars and their “plus ones” moved to the head of the vaccine appointment line. “Each influencer will be allowed to bring one spouse, partner, or relative who meets Florida’s eligibility requirement” to the party, health officials informed a select group of social media stars.

Joe Smyser, the head of a nonprofit called “Public Good Projects,” told Politico his outfit pays “microinfluencers” to post about getting the COVID vaccine and compensates them “anywhere between tens to hundreds of dollars.” The Oklahoma City-County Health Department has paid 35 young social media stars undisclosed sums to post government-approved COVID vaccine content and convince their peers that they need the shots to return to “normal” life.

This is how "news" is made and "public opinion" is shaped.

Serious concerns about the coronavirus

Meaning In HistoryI got a range of responses regarding the Michael Yeadon interview that I republished yesterday. Overall it was well received, but there were some commenters who reflected the response that Yeadon himself describes having received--people who say, I can't believe my rulers would lie to me. That, despite the fact that throughout history our rulers--including rulers of the American people--have repeatedly lied to us about fundamentally important matters.

Right up front I'll state the conclusion to this post: Yes, reverse transcription (RT) looks to be one among several factors that should give everyone pause to question the current rush to vax the whole world.

I'm not interested in being a guinea pig for a new vaccination technique against a relatively harmless (at my age and health) disease. Not even if millions of people are doing it and governments are insisting on it. Especially if governments are insisting on it.

Universities and similar institutions providing close-quarters living space do have an interest in ensuring the health of their student bodies through vaccinations, which they can make mandatory for attendance or employment should they so choose. However, the COVID vaccines are substantially different than the much safer vaccines against the many more dangerous diseases we suffered from in the past. Further, the intent by those in power is clearly to make use of the COVID vaccination as a tool of social control rather than as an individual choice. The danger is that a wide array of nominally private social institutions will take up the call to require COVID vaccinations for everything. And that slides rapidly into totalitarianism. Indeed, if you judge by the masking campaigns and lockdowns, we are already there.

We should reject demands for vaccination against a relatively low-risk disease because liberty must not become conditional on vaccination status.

Vermont tying vaccination access to race

Liberty UnyieldingVermont is giving racial minorities and their families a preference in access to the COVID-19 vaccine. As the state’s governor explained on Twitter, “If you or anyone in your household identifies as Black, Indigenous, or a person of color (BIPOC), including anyone with Abenaki or other First Nations heritage, all household members who are 16 years or older can sign up to get a vaccine!”

This is unconstitutional. The Supreme Court has ruled that preferences for racial minorities are presumptively unconstitutional, and that even if minority groups have faced “societal discrimination,” that is not a reason to give them a preference. (See Richmond v. J.A. Croson Co. (1989)).

I don't want a vaccine myself, and I'm not in Vermont, but this is still unconstitutional.

COVID vaccine may need yearly updates

Just The NewsScientists are warning this first group of COVID-19 vaccines could be ineffective in a year or less as new mutations and variations or the virus emerge.

The warning is take from survey by the People's Vaccine Alliance, a group of several organizations, including Amnesty International, in which two-thirds of the scientists acknowledged such a scenario. The other one-third said the timeframe to develop new vaccines to vend off the mutating virus is nine months or less.

I'd rather take my chances with natural immunity to the virus than a new, experimental vaccine every year. I don't bother with flu vaccines either.

Individuals with different risk profiles may make different decisions, and that's up to them.

Sturgis rally NOT a superspreader event

Just The NewsOne of the largest motorcycle rallies in the world was still held in Sturgis, South Dakota, during the COVID-19 pandemic last summer, which the media claimed led to more than 266,000 COVID-19 cases, or nearly one in five of every case reported in America at the time.

The number of cases came from a study by San Diego State University professors published in September, just a month following the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

However, the Sturgis city manager, Daniel Ainslie, said the study and other models that predicted their hospitals would be overwhelmed were wrong.

Stubborn facts rarely agree with politically motivated liberal studies.

Permanent Pandemic

The BlazeBloomberg reporter Andreas Kluth suggested that Americans get ready for full-time pandemic preparation.

"For the past year, an assumption — sometimes explicit, often tacit — has informed almost all our thinking about the pandemic: At some point, it will be over, and then we'll go 'back to normal,'" Kluth wrote. "This premise is almost certainly wrong."

There is no getting back to "normal," according to Kluth, who said that Americans ought to prepare themselves to fight COVID-19 — a "permanent enemy," like influenza, "but worse."

This is exactly what a totalitarian government needs to keep its people in fear. All over a disease with a survival rate around 99% and several viable treatment regimes, even if you exclude the vaccines as too risky.

It would be insane... if it wasn't malicious.

COVID "vaccine" to be an annual shot

NBC News"It's going to be the same with Covid. In a year, you will have to go and get your annual shot for Covid to be protected."

No thanks. I wasn't sold on a flu shot that had to be taken every year and didn't always hit the right strains. The COVID "vaccine" is less tested, more dangerous, and the actual disease is a very minimal health threat to anyone whose immune system is reasonably functional, in addition to potential cross immunity from other coronaviruses like the common cold. (Which they still can't manage to vaccinate for, by the way). Oh, and we now have several viable treatments.

I see no reason for anyone not in a high risk group to consider the vaccine as a one time shot. As a once a year thing, no way.

This explains a lot..

I was wondering why it was taking so long for the Deep State and media to turn off the COVID panic after Biden got inaugurated. What I wasn't taking into account was that they had bought a lot of vaccine stocks and needed to get people injected with those before they can really stop the panic. They've already adjusted the panic dial downwards (by changing the testing to reduce false positive rates) but it takes time to be noticeable, and they are using that time to inject their experimental "vaccine" into as many people as possible before the panic stops.

I do wonder about that vaccine. It's not necessary for COVID, a fake crisis. Is profit motive really enough explanation for how hard they have been pushing it?

The only other credible possibility I am aware of is a risk (not confirmed) of fertility reduction, which is also known to be one of Bill Gates' obsessions. I don't think we'll get any answers on that front for decades, if ever.

Biden admits he can't fix the virus

Fox News"If we fail to act, there will be a wave of evictions and foreclosures in the coming months as this pandemic rages on because there’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months," Biden said.

Biden had pledged efforts to jumpstart the US economy and provide aid to struggling Americans would be his top priority upon entering the Oval Office. The two executive orders Friday followed 10 other actions related to the pandemic he signed the previous day, including a mandate requiring masks to be worn on federal land.

The president faced some pushback over his remarks on the pandemic’s trajectory. Critics, including former Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, pointed out that coronavirus-related restrictions imposed in several states were meant to "flatten the curve."

"Haven’t we been told for months that restrictions and mandates were necessary to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months?" Amash wrote on Twitter.

Biden ran on having a better plan to fix the coronavirus right away, but practically his first day in office he admits there is nothing he can do to change its course. Lockdowns don't work. Masks don't work. It's a respiratory virus; the relevant particles are just too small for a mask to filter and infections will spread no matter what. Hand-washing and sanitizing surfaces are helpful but not preventative. Even vaccines are useless -- the immunity will be temporary as the virus mutates.

But the panic put Biden in office and that's all he cared about.

Lockdowns don't work (except to get Trump out)

NewsweekA study evaluating COVID-19 responses around the world found that mandatory lockdown orders early in the pandemic may not provide significantly more benefits to slowing the spread of the disease than other voluntary measures, such as social distancing or travel reduction.

The peer reviewed study was published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation on January 5, and analyzed coronavirus case growth in 10 countries in early 2020.

The researchers used a mathematical model to compare countries that did and did not enact more restrictive lockdown orders, and determined that there was "no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on case growth in any country."

Now that Biden is about to enter the White House, it's safe to tell us that lockdowns don't work. Who would have guessed?

Fauci admits to lies about herd immunity

Daily CallerDr. Anthony Fauci reportedly said in a phone interview that he has been deliberately changing his public statements regarding the COVID-19 pandemic because he didn’t think people were ready to hear his true beliefs, according to the New York Times.

Fauci has been slowly increasing the number of Americans he says need to be vaccinated for the U.S. to reach “herd immunity” in public statements, the New York Times reported Thursday morning. He reportedly told the Times he has done so “partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.”

What we hear is a disgusting man who thinks lies are better than truth. We remember when he lied about masks and he has kept lying about masks, death rates, risks, everything. When you lie, you lose all credibility and people stop believing you.

Newsweek suddenly starts warning of vaccine side effects...

NewsweekThe potential rare, and long-term side effects of COVID vaccines may emerge—if they do at all—after millions of people are immunized, experts have told Newsweek. However, they stressed the benefits of getting vaccinated against a virus that has killed over 1.4 million people worldwide and is still raging in many countries by far outweighs the risks.

So now the official media are broadcasting very mild and milquetoast warnings about "long-term side effects" of COVID vaccines, while minimizing the risk by comparing it to a disease that -- without vaccination and while ignoring several promising treatment protocols -- has killed significantly less than 1% of the people who catch it, and the vast majority of those within well defined risk groups by age and comorbidities. In other words, roughly the same people the seasonal flu would kill.

That they are suddenly warning of long term side effects that "may emerge" and simultaneously downplaying their severity is more than a little ominous. Combined with more than a few examples of people faking a vaccination shot on tv?

What is it they know is coming that they won't tell us?

Conservative TreehouseAn interesting article from the American Institute for Economic Research (AIER) is gaining increased attention as questions about asymptomatic spread of COVID-19, the baseline for all COVID mitigation, is being reconciled with the latest tracing data.

In essence, the larger question being asked is: can people without coronavirus symptoms spread the COVID-19 virus? This question is at the heart of all current COVID mitigation efforts. If there is no asymptomatic spread then what is all of this mask wearing nonsense and shut-down mandates all about?

No asymptomatic spread means the mask craze was meaningless, and I've known about this for months (due to earlier studies).

Faking vaccines?

KTSMSome of our viewers raised questions about video KTSM 9 News showed from Tuesday’s COVID-19 vaccine injections at University Medical Center of El Paso, specifically the second vaccine that was administered.

In our video, you can see the UMC health care worker with his sleeve rolled up, but when it comes time for the injection, it appears that the person administering the shot doesn’t push down on the plunger — the plunger looks like it is already depressed.

Some eagle-eyed KTSM 9 News viewers wondered if the worker received the vaccine at all.

“After numerous reports emerged on social media claiming one of the five nurses receiving a vaccination on Tuesday did not receive a full dose of vaccine, we want to remove any doubt raised that he was not fully vaccinated and further strengthen confidence in the vaccination process,” UMC said in a statement to KTSM. “The nurse in question today was vaccinated again. UMC has confirmed with the US Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) that re-vaccinating the nurse will not cause adverse effects. The nurse will need to return after three weeks to receive his second dose.”

... if he was really vaccinated the first time, he wouldn't need to be vaccinated "again". I have no idea why this place would stage a vaccination, but they clearly did. Maybe it was for some innocuous (heh heh heh) reason. Whatever the reason and intent, it damages their credibility and the credibility of the people desperately pushing a vaccine for a disease most people barely notice.

And speaking of lost credibility, note that they aren't going to broadcast their volunteers' second sticking, just promise that he got one without showing any proof.

For a good roundup of potential problems with the vaccine, see here. While these are all in the realm of potential problems (with the exception of possible fertility issues, for which there is evidence in similar viruses, making is more than just speculative), the insane rush towards applying this vaccine to everyone makes my risk-management antenna twitch like mad.

Mayor of London also faked getting his vaccine.

AMA Rescinds Guidance Against Hydroxychloroquine

Published ReporterThe American Medical Association (AMA), in a surprising move, has officially rescinded a previous statement against the use of Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) in the treatment of COVID-19 patients, giving physicians the okay to return to utilizing the medication at their discretion.

Previously, the AMA had issued a statement in March that was highly critical of HCQ in regards to its use as a proposed treatment by some physicians in the early stages of COVID-19. In addition to discouraging doctors from ordering the medication in bulk for “off-label” use – HCQ is typically used to treat diseases such as malaria – they also claimed that there was no proof that it was effective in treating COVID, and that its use could be harmful in some instances.

Now that the election is over and millions of doses of an advanced new vaccine have been purchased, they can announcement that we already had an effective and cheap treatment all along.

Big Brother on campus

Legal InsurrectionMel Xiao, a Rice University senior who helps investigate and adjudicate COVID-19 rule violations by other students, doesn’t mind if she’s viewed by her peers as “big brother” on campus.

Xiao is one of 11 students at Rice who served as a judge on the COVID Community Court, or CCC, a student-led judiciary that looks into reports of students neglecting to wear masks or socially distance, or who are hosting visitors in their dorm rooms, which are violations of the university’s Culture of Care Agreement for the 2020-21 academic year. A three-judge panel hears and investigates each low-level COVID-19-related violation and doles out “educational” punishments, such as writing an apology letter or hanging up posters that promote public health measures in their dorm, said Emily Garza, director of student judicial programs at Rice.

While Xiao and Garza believe the student-on-student disciplinary process is more effective than sending minor violations directly to university officials, Xiao has heard some criticism by students on social media. Students say they don’t want to be a “snitch” and report violations by friends, or argue that the CCC isn’t a “big deal” since it only handles violations that occur on campus, she said.

Based on her Chinese name, I'm sure the opportunity to snitch on other students for minor violations of silly rules makes her feel right at home.

No scientific basis to bans on outdoor dining

ReasonThis week a Los Angeles County judge ruled that a local ban on outdoor dining at restaurants, ostensibly aimed at reducing transmission of the COVID-19 virus, was "not grounded in science, evidence, or logic." Around the same time, California Health and Human Services Secretary Mark Ghaly admitted that the same thing is true of a state ban on outdoor dining that currently applies to all of Southern California, including Los Angeles County. Ghaly said that ban, which is one of many restrictions that are triggered when a region's available ICU capacity drops below 15 percent, is "not a comment on the relative safety of outdoor dining" but is instead aimed at discouraging Californians from leaving home.

"The decision to include, among other sectors, outdoor dining and limiting that, turning to restaurants to deliver and provide takeout options instead, really has to do with the goal of trying to keep people at home," Ghaly said during a briefing on Tuesday. He noted that "we have worked hard with that industry to create safer ways for outdoor dining to happen."

It's about control. It has always been about control. They want to keep you at home, where you can't go to Trump rallies, or get information in any way other than through the official media channels, which are ever more heavily censored.

Vaccines and informed consent

Michelle MalkinPatient rights and bioethics are impossible without truly informed consent. This fundamental concept has vanished from public view faster than paper towels and toilet paper from your grocery shelves. Informed consent matters more than ever because we are entering the most coercive era of medical tyranny in human history.

If the public health-industrial complex gets its way, you may not be able to work, travel, shop or go to school without proof of a COVID-19 vaccination. Who needs government to do the mandating when corporations, airlines and educational institutions will do all the dirty work for Big Brother? The unthinking surrender of our autonomy to global pandemic blackmailers is horrific. Can you really offer voluntary and thorough consent at “warp speed” with a figurative gun to your head?

I generally believe that vaccines are important medical advances that protect both individual and public health, but that they are also matters of personal choice. If you don't want to be vaccinated, for any reason or none, that's pretty much on you. It's a cost-benefit analysis.

Childhood vaccines that offer long-term protection against serious diseases are great. A yearly flu vaccine that offers anywhere from 30%-70% protection against a disease that makes you sick for a few days is silly, unless you are in a particularly high risk category.

With respect to the COVID vaccine specifically... I don't trust it. It was developed so rapidly, with so many medical experts originally saying it was so difficult to vaccinate against that type of virus, that I think it's unusually risky. There are reports people can still spread the disease even after being vaccinated. And the disease it protects against is easily survivable by the vast majority of people who contract it, who will then generate natural immunity.

So I'm going to avoid the COVID vaccine for a while. And I don't like the arrangements that are evidently being put into place to force people to take it.

Hydroxychloroquin improves odds of hospitalization by 84%

Wasington ExaminerA peer-reviewed study measuring the effectiveness of a controversial drug cocktail that includes hydroxychloroquine concluded that the treatment lowered hospitalizations and mortality rates of coronavirus patients.

The study, set to be published in the International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents in December, determined that “Low-dose hydroxychloroquine combined with zinc and azithromycin was an effective therapeutic approach against COVID-19.”

A total of 141 patients diagnosed with the coronavirus were treated with the three-drug cocktail over a period of five days and compared to a control group of 377 people who tested positive for the virus but were not given the treatment.

The study found that “the odds of hospitalisation of treated patients was 84% less than in the untreated patients,” and only one patient died from the group being treated with the drugs compared to 13 deaths in the untreated group.

They did the treatment regimen correctly, and it worked. The results appear better than the high tech new therapeutics (which improved odds by about 25%, IIRC).

PA governor vetos pro-gun bills

Captain's JournalPennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf (D-Pa.) vetoed two gun bills that would repeal laws intended to control the carrying of guns and prevent public officials from shutting down firearms sales during emergency proclamations.

The bills, which recently passed the Republican-controlled Pennsylvania State Senate, intended to limit Wolf’s powers during the COVID-19 pandemic and moving forward, AP News reported. Wolf, a Democrat who supports broader gun control measures, has previously vetoed more than six such bills.

There is absolutely nothing about COVID that should prevent you from buying a gun. It is a retail operation like anything else, and a specially protected constitutional right on top of that.

A contrast

Just The NewsNearly half of all U.S. voters have a negative view of socialism, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.

Forty-seven percent of those voters surveyed said they had an unfavorable opinion of the political philosophy, espoused throughout history by revolutionaries such as Lenin, Stalin and Che Guevara.

Less than a third – 29% – said they had a favorable view of the political philosophy or theory, which is broadly that an entire community owns and shares in the prosperity of its members.

Democrats make up about 1/3 of the population.

But as for our elected officials...

Just The News
Bipartisan group of lawmakers unveil $908 billion coronavirus relief package framework. A bipartisan group of lawmakers on Tuesday laid out a framework for emergency COVID-19 relief funding heading into the winter months.

The framework for the $908 billion rescue package consists of $288 billion more for the Paycheck Protection Program to assist small businesses during the pandemic, $180 billion for unemployment insurance, $10 billion for the U.S. Postal Service and $160 billion for state and local governments.

That's socialism. Free government money for everyone until it all runs out and the death camps begin.

There are no excess deaths in 2020

Behind The BlackA new analysis of the 2020 death statistics in the United States has revealed that despite the panic over COVID-19, the total number of deaths in all age groups — including the elderly — showed no change before or after the arrival of the virus.

This bears repeating, in bold and italics: There have been no excess deaths in 2020.

It appears that either a) COVID killed everyone who would have died anyway, or b) a lot of people who died from normal causes had COVID incorrectly listed on their death certificate, or c) both.

UPDATE: Johns Hopkins took down the study. Not because it was wrong but because they didn't like that people noticed and shared it because it went against the narrative of covid terror.

WHO head admits coronavirus will never end

Zerohedge“Since the beginning of the #COVID19 pandemic, we knew that a vaccine would be essential for bringing the pandemic under control. But it’s important to emphasise that a vaccine will complement the other tools we have, not replace them,” said Ghebreyesus.

A vaccine on its own will not end the #COVID19 pandemic. We will still need to continue:
-Surveillance
-Testing, isolating & caring for cases
-Tracing & quarantining contacts
-Engaging communities
-Encouraging individuals to be careful #ACTogether #EB147
— Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (@DrTedros) November 16, 2020

This admission makes it quite obvious that the lockdowns, masks, and everything, were never actually about the virus. They were and are about power; nothing more and nothing less. Stay in your homes like terrified sheep until we give you permission to leave. If you don't keep your vaccinations up to date we'll revoke your travel papers, and if your opinions are unapproved we will censor them from the internet while keeping you locked in your house so you can't spread them the old fashioned way.

And yes, the expanded welfare and "stimulus" purportedly for COVID is really just a universal basic income, isn't it?

A UK doctor's timeline for Coronavirus

The CriticFrankly, if it had not been for mainstream media and the government, I would not have even noticed there were a pandemic. I experienced no excessive dying, and no excessive becoming seriously ill. Since January, I have worked in three different general practices across England, in two regions. Accumulatively, they contained over 16,000 patients. Up to my last time of asking in September 2020 there had been many well Covid-19 “swab positives”, and only 5 deaths “with” a Covid-19 “swab positive”. Those 5 deaths were all white, over 60 years, with other co-morbidities.

In the BAME-dominated practice of nearly 6000 where I work with the most deprived, the poor, the homeless, addicts, and migrants, no one was known to have died in association “with” a Covid-19 swab-positive test.

In the practice of 1800 where I worked through the inception and peak of the pandemic, only two people died of anything between January and July. These two were expected deaths of metastatic terminal cancer.

The panic is based on hysteria, not evidence.

Masks don't work

Washington ExaminerA study published in late October by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology linking a decrease in coronavirus hospitalizations to a face-mask mandate has been withdrawn following an increase in cases in the areas studied.

“The authors have withdrawn this manuscript because there are increased rates of SARS-CoV-2 cases in the areas that we originally analyzed in this study,” the updated abstract of the study titled "Decrease in Hospitalizations for COVID-19 after Mask Mandates in 1083 U.S. Counties” now reads. “New analyses in the context of the third surge in the United States are therefore needed and will be undertaken directly in conjunction with the creators of the publicly-available databases on cases, hospitalizations, testing rates. Etc.”

Seriously, they just don't. At least not against COVID, and applied to the whole population.

Medical Theater

Front PageA week before issuing a statewide mask mandate and a few weeks after trying to ban Thanksgiving, Governor Newsom attended a dinner party, maskless, for a lobbyist.

The size of the party, a dozen people, contravened, Newsom’s own Thanksgiving crackdown limiting gathering sizes and urging members of different households not to mingle. The photos also contravened Newsom’s guidelines to wear a mask at dinner between bites.

The people insisting you stay at home and wear a mask are not following their own rules. The masks are just a system of control and a symbol of submission. They don't actually work (against this specific disease, anyway), and the "elites" believe they are not subject to their own rules.

Study: Masks don't work against COVID

SpectatorWednesday marked the publication of a long-delayed trial in Denmark which hopes to answer that very question. The ‘Danmask-19 trial’ was conducted in the spring with over 3,000 participants, when the public were not being told to wear masks but other public health measures were in place. Unlike other studies looking at masks, the Danmask study was a randomized controlled trial — making it the highest quality scientific evidence.

Around half of those in the trial received 50 disposable surgical face masks, which they were told to change after eight hours of use. After one month, the trial participants were tested using both PCR, antibody and lateral flow tests and compared with the trial participants who did not wear a mask.

In the end, there was no statistically significant difference between those who wore masks and those who did not when it came to being infected by COVID-19. Of those wearing masks, 1.8 percent caught COVID, compared to 2.1 percent of the control group. As a result, it seems that any effect masks have on preventing the spread of the disease in the community is small.

To be clear: Masks work for some diseases and in some circumstances, when worn properly they can protect against large particles being spread from an infected person to other people. When trying to use them in widespread fashion, against the coronavirus, they do not work. Why not? The particles are too small and pass through the masks easily, even when properly worn, and they are not properly worn by the general public.

They are basically meaningless unless you experiencing symptoms (coughing, sneezing) which produce large particles the mask can catch before spreading. But if you're not showing those symptoms but are still contagious, the particles you are shedding are too small for the mask to stop.

It's just medical theater.

Cuomo wants Biden to get credit for COVID vaccine

Fox NewsNew York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that while it is "good news" that Pfizer has had a recent breakthrough in its coronavirus vaccine clinical trial, he believes it is "bad news" that the Trump administration will get to plan the distribution.

In an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday, Cuomo said he has spoken to other governors about how they can alter or even block Trump's plan so that President-elect Joe Biden could do it instead.

This is the governor who sent COVID patients into nursing homes to kill as many old people as possible, and now he wants to delay a vaccine just so Biden can take political credit for something Trump did?

FBI claims it foiled "militia plot" to kidnap governor

They arrested 6 people for the plot, which involved them discussing actions to take in response to Whitmer's unconstitutional shutdown of the state. No actual violence was involved, though the FBi alleges they agreed to try to recruit more members and possibly surveilled the governor's vacation home (that means "they looked at" the building).

Given the well-known proclivities of the federal government, I predict these charges will eventually be dropped after all the involved agencies finish coordinating and realize that all six individuals are informants, agent provocateurs, or previous recipients of pardons from Democrats. Also, at least some of them appear to be "anarchists" rather than "militia".

Just to take a couple examples.

In the US, the Deep State (represented by Fauci on the medical side, the Democratic party, and the media) want to oust Trump. I've mentioned previous how the virus helps that effort, along with delaying and distracting from SpyGate.

In the UK... well, you haven't heard about how Brexit is or isn't going to happen in a while, have you?

In many other nations, it matters less because their media doesn't necessarily operate in English, making the internal posture less visible. Are China or Russia panicking too? Who knows? I would guess not, at this point. Tracking, yes. Panicking, no.

9th Circus makes it official: suspends 1st Amd during pandemic

Two judges in the 9th Circus have purported to suspend the 1st Amendment until there is a cure for the Kung Flu.

This doesn't actually surprise me much; there's historically a lot of latitude for this sort of thing during public emergencies. Courts will let the executive handle the emergency and focus on reviewing it all well after the fact.

The aspect this court is missing -- probably deliberately -- is whether there is actually an emergency that justifies that treatment. There's certainly a panic, but I'm not convinced the data shows an actual emergency. So can the government exaggerate an unusual, but not disastrous, new disease and get a pass from the bill of rights? I suspect not, but I doubt the courts will say so until more time makes the evidence very clear. Particularly courts with a liberal bias.

There's also the question of duration; temporary restrictions can pass muster where permanent ones would not. So, for how long are we supposed to hide from the Kung Flu? What happens if there is never a cure, never a vaccine, and (just like the normal flu or the common cold) we just have to learn to live with it? Does the bill of rights stay suspended then?

Sources say Chinese virus likely escaped from Chinese lab

Fox NewsThere is increasing confidence that the COVID-19 outbreak likely originated in a Wuhan laboratory, though not as a bioweapon but as part of China's attempt to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China's government and seen relevant materials tell Fox News.

This may be the "costliest government cover-up of all time," one of the sources said.

The sources believe the initial transmission of the virus – a naturally occurring strain that was being studied there – was bat-to-human and that "patient zero" worked at the laboratory, then went into the population in Wuhan.

Just a few weeks ago, the idea that this originated in a Chinese lab was classed as a conspiracy theory. Now it's the known and accepted government theory.

In another few weeks, will the idea that the virus was deliberately modified in that lab become accepted as well? I expect it will, because I think that's exactly what happened.

And as for the bioweapon question, it's not just about whether and why the virus was developed. If China knew enough to close internal borders to Wuhan, but left Wuhan open to international travel, that's a damning measure of intent regardless of origin.

CDC confirms Kung Flu is no worse than a bad flu season

The death rate appears to be 0.26%, a little more than double that of the average flu (0.1%). Stanford researchers pegged that number over a month ago.

This was a political panic job designed to sabotage the economy. Not that the virus isn't real; that seems undeniable. Not that it wasn't manufactured in a lab -- case not proven yet, but it seems likely. But it certainly wasn't the deadly disease it was sold as when the CDC's Dr Fauci shut down the country.

Unanswered questions: So why did China shut down like they did? Maybe deliberately, because they hate Trump and were read in on the plot. Maybe they just panicked in the presence of an unknown disease. Maybe the disease really was as bad as advertised, but mutated to a less deadly strain. Maybe air pollution in China is bad enough to increase vulnerability. I don't know.

But I think the panic is over.

UPDATE: The panic is still over, but there is reason for skepticism about these numbers.

The Price of Fauci's Folly

It looks like the famous, or perhaps infamous, Dr Fauci is even more intimately involvewd in the Kung Fly debacle than he's admitting. Turns out that in his role at the Center for Disease Control, he funded the Chinese lab where the disease may have originated. Why? He was outsourcing viral gain-of-function research the US had banned after safety issues at CDC labs. What's gain of function research? Exactly what you might expect: adding new function to existing viruses. Like what happened to create the Kung Flu.

It's worth also pointing on when that funding happened. 2015, under Obama.

Jerusalem Post"The best experts so far seem to think it was man-made. I have no reason to disbelieve that at this point," Pompeo said. When the interviewer pointed out that was not the conclusion of U.S. intelligence agencies, Pompeo backtracked, saying, "I've seen what the intelligence community has said. I have no reason to believe that they've got it wrong."

I'll trust Pompeo's description of what the intel community's best experts think over what a random interviewer thinks they said, given that Pompeo's the one with the official clearances. I don't read Pompeo as backtracking at all.

We're a long ways from understanding everything going on behind the scenes with this virus. But Fauci appears to be central to it, and I don't think he's been asked the right questions yet.

The cause of the coming meat shortage

Washington ExaminerThere is no actual shortage in livestock. (Remember, farmers are about to kill their produce needlessly.) Rather, the breakdown is coming on the plant side of the equation where cramped quarters are hazardous. Why can’t farmers sell directly to consumers and circumvent this problem? You guessed it — government regulations.

In 1967, the federal government blocked states from making their own decisions on how meat was processed and promptly handed the power to the Department of Agriculture, or USDA.

What followed was essentially a takeover of control of the industry. Farmers had to travel long distances and sell their livestock to a small number of USDA slaughterhouses instead of to local butchers, small processors, or directly to consumers. This relationship began to severely impact their profit margins as the government was able to force farmers to sell their product for pennies on the dollar. When you limit the number of places the producers can sell, you control the prices.

Wait, what? Why? Why was this done, why was it considered good policy? Even if you want the FDA to have regulatory control of food safety, why would you require in those regulations that food be processed in a large central facility instead of in a distributed (and thus resilient) system?

Let's let the free market and competition solve this problem.

Official investigation into the origin of the Kung Flu

Fox NewsThe U.S. is conducting a full-scale investigation into whether the novel coronavirus, which went on to morph into a global pandemic that has brought the global economy to its knees, escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China, Fox News has learned.

Intelligence operatives are said to be gathering information about the laboratory and the initial outbreak of the virus. Intelligence analysts are piecing together a timeline of what the government knew and “creating an accurate picture of what happened,” the sources said.

Once that investigation is complete -- something that is expected to happen in the near-term -- the findings will be presented to the Trump administration. At that point White House policymakers and President Trump will use the findings to determine how to hold the country accountable for the pandemic.

Holding China accountable is unlikely to be very successful. Yes, this situation will generate a lot of political support for policies to punish China. Which means what? Pulling our manufacturing out, applying more tariffs perhaps, things which we mostly wanted to do anyway (under Trump, at least). We're unlikely to get them to actually pay us trillions. They will ignore lawsuits or enforcement actions through international bodies. They already have enough intellectual property to be only mildly inconvenienced by losing access to more.

A military response is only really on the table if there is strong evidence they did this deliberately, and that's a hard case to make. (Accidentally, sure).

Our options for responding to this hostile act by China seem limited.

CIA issued a warning against hydroxychloroquine, saying it has potentially dangerous side effects, despite Trump talking up the drugs' usefulness against COVID-19.

Covid-19 virus may have orignated in Chinese lab after all

Daily MailSenior Government sources say that while 'the balance of scientific advice' is still that the deadly virus was first transmitted to humans from a live animal market in Wuhan, a leak from a laboratory in the Chinese city is 'no longer being discounted'.

One member of Cobra, the emergency committee led by Boris Johnson, said last night that while the latest intelligence did not dispute the virus was 'zoonotic' – originating in animals – it did not rule out that the virus first spread to humans after leaking from a Wuhan laboratory.

The member of Cobra, which receives detailed classified briefings from the security services, said: 'There is a credible alternative view [to the zoonotic theory] based on the nature of the virus. Perhaps it is no coincidence that there is that laboratory in Wuhan. It is not discounted.'

I don't know where the virus originated, but there is quite a lot of credible evidence that it escaped from the virology lab in Wuhan. The lab was studying coronaviruses in bats, hiring people to study a new virus, and has had previously reported safety incidents related to their bats.
