Imbalances in the make-up of the microbiome may also be implicated in persisting inflammatory symptoms, dubbed ‘long COVID’, the findings suggest.
COVID-19 is primarily a respiratory illness, but the evidence suggests that the gut may also have a role.
As the gut is the largest immunological organ in the body and its resident microbes are known to influence immune responses, the researchers wanted to find out if the gut microbiome might also affect the immune system response to COVID-19 infection.
They therefore obtained blood and stool samples and medical records from 100 hospital inpatients with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 infection between February and May 2020 and from 78 people without COVID-19 who were taking part in a microbiome study before the pandemic.
The severity of COVID-19 was classified as mild in the absence of x-ray evidence of pneumonia; moderate if pneumonia with fever and respiratory tract symptoms were detected; severe if patients found it very difficult to breathe normally; and critical if they needed mechanical ventilation or experienced organ failure requiring intensive care.
To characterise the gut microbiome, 41 of the COVID patients provided multiple stool samples while in hospital, 27 of whom provided serial stool samples up to 30 days after clearance of SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.
Analysis of all 274 stool samples showed that the make-up of the gut microbiome differed significantly between patients with and without COVID-19, irrespective of whether they had been treated with drugs, including antibiotics.
COVID patients had higher numbers of Ruminococcus gnavus, Ruminococcus torques and Bacteroides dorei species than people without the infection.
And they had far fewer of the species that can influence immune system response, such as Bifidobacterium adolescentis, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii and Eubacterium rectale.
Lower numbers of F. prausnitzii and Bifidobacterium bifidum were particularly associated with infection severity after taking account of antibiotic use and patient age.
And the numbers of these bacteria remained low in the samples collected up to 30 days after infected patients had cleared the virus from their bodies.
COVID-19 infection prompts the immune system to produce inflammatory cytokines in response. In some cases, this response can be excessive (‘cytokine storm’), causing widespread tissue damage, septic shock, and multiorgan failure.
Analysis of the blood samples showed that the microbial imbalance found in the COVID patients was also associated with raised levels of inflammatory cytokines and blood markers of tissue damage, such as C-reactive protein and certain enzymes.
This suggests that the gut microbiome might influence the immune system response to COVID-19 infection and potentially affect disease severity and outcome, say the researchers.
“In light of reports that a subset of recovered patients with COVID-19 experience persistent symptoms, such as fatigue, dyspnoea [breathlessness] and joint pains, some over 80 days after initial onset of symptoms, we posit that the dysbiotic gut microbiome could contribute to immune-related health problems post-COVID-19,” they write.
This is an observational study, and as such, can’t establish cause, added to which the gut microbiome varies widely among different populations, so the changes observed in this study may not be applicable to other COVID patients elsewhere, caution the researchers.
But they point to mounting evidence showing that gut microbes are linked to inflammatory diseases within and beyond the gut.
And they conclude: “Bolstering of beneficial gut species depleted in COVID-19 could serve as a novel avenue to mitigate severe disease, underscoring the importance of managing patients’ gut microbiota during and after COVID-19.”
In a controlled clinical trial, the researchers gathered 267 participants with CLD. These patients suffered from different kinds of liver-related conditions, including hepatitis B and C, cirrhosis due to alcohol intake and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). One group, comprised of 196 patients, received zinc supplementation twice daily. The other group, which had 71 patients, did not. Both groups however, received other standard treatments, including amino acid supplementation.
After three years, the study’s findings affirmed what the researchers suspected: the zinc group exhibited improved liver function and a reduction in inflammatory markers as well as a lower risk of developing liver cancer. Meanwhile, the liver health of patients who did not receive zinc deteriorated throughout the study.
Moreover, the researchers were able to identify the molecular mechanisms underlying zinc’s effects. According to their findings, when the body does not have enough zinc, it causes liver-specific cells called hepatic stellate cells to activate. This leads to lipid peroxidation, a process where reactive oxygen species attack polyunsaturated fats. It initiates a self-propagating chain reaction that results in the accumulation of fat in the liver. According to their findings, this fatty accumulation may contribute to several liver diseases.
Overall, the study showed that consuming more zinc – or at least meeting the recommended intake – may prevent liver cancer and promote overall liver health.
Zinc is essential for the normal development and function of your immune system, as it protects against susceptibility to pathogens, mediates natural killer cells, activates T-lymphocytes, regulates macrophages, and is central to DNA replication.
You have at least 300 enzymes that require zinc to function normally.
Evidence shows zinc helps protect the body from COVID-19 by impairing viral replication in the cell, supporting ciliary growth and function in the respiratory system, and improving the respiratory epithelial barrier.
A cold can last as short as a week, but in children and the elderly, it can last longer. Cold symptoms include a stuffy head, runny nose, sore throat, headache, and sometimes a fever. These are some of the same symptoms of influenza, but the symptoms are often worse and include fever and body chills.
It wasn’t until the work of Dr. Ananda Prasad in the 1970s that zinc was acknowledged as an essential mineral. A decade earlier, Prasad was studying young men who had grown up in Egypt and never attained their normal height.
After supplementing with zinc, the men grew “significantly taller.” In the 1970s, zinc was acknowledged by the National Academy of Sciences as a mineral fundamental to many aspects of health. Prasad collaborated with a scientist from the University of Michigan to demonstrate that zinc influences immunity.
Research in the past decade has identified the crucial role that zinc plays in curtailing the length and severity of upper respiratory infections. A meta-analysis published in 2017 found those who took a zinc supplement of 80 to 92 milligrams (mg) each day at the beginning of cold symptoms saw a reduction in the length of their cold by 33 percent.
Although research has demonstrated the significant positive effect zinc has on the immune system and on shortening upper respiratory infections caused by common cold viruses, further research in 2020 demonstrated that zinc is crucial to immune system function and deficiency may be linked to individuals who have severe COVID-19 illness.
Zinc Crucial for Immune System Development
Since the 1970s, scientists have discovered several facts about zinc and how it plays a central role in the immune system. Your immune system is your body’s first line of defense. Whether this is against infectious disease, wound infections, or chronic disease, your immune system plays a crucial role.
Researchers have spent decades studying the different ways that you can support your immune system to improve function. Nutrients play a vital role in supporting your immune system, and one of those nutrients is zinc.
There are academics who also support Zelenko’s efforts, including some at the University of Texas, which hosts a download page describing the history and citations behind the Zelenko Protocol. Zelenko and the Front Line critical care doctors used their knowledge of the association between zinc and your immune system to develop their successful protocols. Data has shown:
People who are deficient in zinc have an increased susceptibility to pathogens, including through the skin barrier.
Zinc mediates nonspecific immunity, including natural killer cells and neutrophils.
Zinc deficiency prevents the activation of T-lymphocytes, production of Th1 cytokine, and the ability of B lymphocytes to help. During deficiency, B lymphocyte development is also compromised.
Deficiency affects the function of macrophage cells, which can trigger cytokine production and dysregulated intracellular death.
Zinc is central to DNA replication, RNA transcription, and cell activation and division.
Evidence Zinc Helps Protect Against COVID-19
Campbell describes several functions by which zinc helps protect the body from COVID-19, including helping to stop viruses from entering cells. Zinc also supports the growth and function of ciliary hairs in the respiratory system that move microbes and debris up and out of the airways. These hairs move in a synchronized beat, like rowers in a boat.
One study published in the American Journal of Rhinology and Allergy showed that zinc helps to stimulate the ciliary beat frequency and may help improve mucociliary clearance, which is essential for clearing the lungs of mucous. Another group of scientists found that supplementing animals deficient in zinc affected the length of the cilia and number of epithelial cells in the bronchus.
Research has shown zinc also functions to improve the respiratory epithelial barrier, the “skin” that lines your respiratory tract and is constantly exposed to particles and microbes from the air you breathe. Evidence has shown that zinc influences interferon-gamma, a type of cytokine. Cytokines are proteins that act like smoke signals to alert the immune system to an invader. Interferon-gamma plays a significant role in defending against intracellular pathogens. When there is a reduction in this cytokine, it results in immunological impairment.
While the jury is still out on whether interferon-gamma plays a role as an anti-tumor mechanism, some studies have shown that it does have a positive effect on patients’ survival of certain cancers.
As you’ve likely heard throughout 2020, zinc also has a direct effect on viral replication inside the cells.
A great way to learn about zinc is a short video Dr. John Campbell posted on YouTube. He reviews some of the science behind the association between zinc and the immune system and shares his belief that zinc is one biological basis some people suffer more severe COVID infections.
Campbell describes some of the effects that zinc has inside the cells, including decreasing the effects of RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, often called replicase since it helps replicate the virus inside the cells.
Zinc Deficiency Linked to Multiple Health Conditions
As Campbell points out, a zinc deficiency can significantly impact your immune system, but it can also result in a hyper-inflammatory response from proinflammatory cytokines. Thus, with a deficiency in zinc, you not only get more viral infections, but these trigger an increase in the hyper-inflammatory response.
Campbell points out that many conditions associated with a zinc deficiency are also known comorbidities for COVID-19. These conditions include:
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
Being on diuretics
Kidney disease and liver cirrhosis/damage
Zinc Ionophores Improve Effectiveness
In a short MedCram video posted on YouTube, Dr. Roger Seheult reviews the compelling evidence that suggests how zinc ionophores (a chemical that helps ions cross cell membranes) improve zinc uptake into the cell. This is a crucial component of stopping viral replication. As Seheult explains, zinc cannot easily penetrate the fatty walls of the cell but needs to be inside the cell to stop viral replication.
There are several zinc ionophores that can do the job. In this video, Seheult describes the role that hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine play. Hydroxychloroquine is the ionophore that Zelenko uses in his protocol to move zinc into the cells.
In his peer-reviewed study, the researchers compared 141 treated patients against 377 untreated patients from the same community.
The data collection showed only four of the 141 treated patients were hospitalized and 58 of the untreated patients were hospitalized. One patient in the treatment group died and 13 patients in the untreated group died.
There are also other natural compounds that may work to get zinc into cells, except for perhaps in the most serious cases. Two that have been studied include quercetin and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is found in green tea.
In a comparative study, researchers evaluated quercetin and EGCG as zinc ionophores. They demonstrated ionophore action on a lipid membrane system and concluded that these polyphenols may raise zinc levels in the cells and have a significant impact on the biological action of zinc.
Interestingly, quercetin is also a potent antiviral, and quercetin and EGCG have the added advantage of inhibiting the 3CL protease. According to a 2020 study in the Journal of Enzyme Inhibition and Medicinal Chemistry, the ability to inhibit SARS coronaviruses “is presumed to be directly linked to suppress the activity of SARS-CoV 3CLpro in some cases.”
Zinc Vitamins May Trigger a Copper Imbalance
Zinc deficiency is not uncommon. Experts believe that about 17.3 percent of the global population is deficient and it is estimated most people over 65 consume just 50 percent of the recommended amount of zinc.
Early zinc deficiency is largely subclinical—meaning you do not have symptoms that a doctor would treat—yet it does impact the immune system. Although you may be tempted to begin supplementing with zinc, it’s important to realize that your body has an intricate method of maintaining a balance of trace minerals such as copper, iron, chromium, and zinc. The best way to readily achieve proper balance is to get your minerals from real food.
Although it may be necessary to supplement during illness when your body needs more zinc, I recommend trying to meet your daily requirement from foods. These are some of the bestfoodsources of zinc:
We’ve long known that zinc can be effective when it comes to shortening the duration of the common cold, and we also know that many common colds are caused by coronaviruses. That has left many people wondering if zinc can help alleviate the impact of the novel coronavirus that is wreaking havoc across the planet, COVID-19.
Zinc is an essential mineral for human health, but we generally don’t need large quantities of it; around 15 milligrams a day is considered reasonable. Responsible for our immune system, wound healing, eyesight, and brain development, it has also been shown to possess antiviral activity.
In one study, people who took zinc while experiencing cold symptoms experienced a far shorter average cold duration than a control group at 4.5 days versus eight days. The participants took roughly 80 milligrams per day, which may be above the daily requirement but is unlikely to cause problems if taken in the short term.
Researchers don’t know exactly why it has this effect, but they think it may prevent the virus from getting into cells by binding with a protein that normally helps it get inside; it could also be that it lowers the level of inflammatory substances found in the blood known as cytokines.
Zinc may help with other coronaviruses, but how useful is it for COVID-19?
One critical care specialist and pulmonologist recently took a closer look at a study carried out into how intracellular zinc can inhibit the SARS-CoV-2 version of coronavirus and how it might also be helpful in fighting the current COVID-19.
The study showed that zinc works by inhibiting coronavirus RNA polymerase activity. It essentially blocks the synthesis of RNA so that the virus is unable to keep replicating.
Because there are a lot of similarities between the two types of coronavirus, it’s reasonable to expect that zinc could affect the current iteration in a similar way. However, this finding pertains to intracellular zinc, or the zinc inside your cells, so zinc lozenges may not be helpful based on that finding.
While it’s not known if taking zinc orally can raise your intracellular zinc levels the way liposomal products can, it wouldn’t hurt to increase your zinc intake by consuming foods that are good sources of the mineral.
Topping the list of good zinc sources is oysters, which stand head and shoulders above other foods when it comes to zinc content. Other good sources of zinc include crab, beef, and lobster.
Is zinc a “silver bullet” against coronavirus?
There was a bit of controversy when online posts attributed to pathologist and coronavirus researcher Dr. James Robb claimed zinc lozenges were a “silver bullet against the coronavirus.” While he has said that his words were misrepresented, he maintained that, given its effects on inhibiting the replication of viruses such as coronaviruses, it may be helpful in the current pandemic.
However, he emphasized that there is no experimental support for such a claim. Nevertheless, he recommends that people suck on zinc lozenges as few times a day should they experience cold-like symptoms, preferably while lying down.
Although we can’t say with 100 percent certainty that zinc can indeed help with coronavirus, taking it is unlikely to hurt and may even help with other health issues. In fact, a deficiency of the mineral can cause problems like hair loss, compromised immunity, high cholesterol, chronic fatigue and osteoporosis.
Researchers and doctors the world over are working hard to uncover ways to address COVID-19. Natural treatments like zinc might not be a panacea, but ensuring you get enough of it is still a great way to enhance your health.
It’s a well-known fact that many older adults suffer from bone loss or osteoporosis. But what many people don’t realize is that it can happen to them, despite their age. In fact, the National Osteoporosis Foundation reports that over 54 million Americans suffer from, or are at risk of, osteoporosis. This can be caused either by excessive bone loss or insufficient production of bones mass. For some people, both factors may even be present.
Having weak bones can take a toll on the quality of a person’s life. It can reduce mobility and increase the risk of bone breakage. When bone loss becomes too severe, bones might even break just from bumping into something or straining, like when you sneeze. Over the years, people have gathered a lot of information regarding bone health and osteoporosis prevention. Unfortunately, most of it is wrong.
When it comes to bone loss, the most common misconception that people have is that calcium alone can solve this problem. This stems from findings that people with osteoporosis have calcium-deficient bones. Although this mineral is crucial for bone development, there are other problems that need to be addressed to prevent bone loss. One of these is oxidative stress, which occurs due to an imbalance in free radicals and antioxidants in the body. Studies have shown that vitamin C is crucial for preventing oxidative stress and bone loss. (Related: Supplemental calcium is the wrong approach to age-related bone loss.)
How does vitamin C improve bone strength
What many people don’t realize is that osteoporosis is scurvy of the bones, which is a symptom of vitamin C deficiency. This means that increasing your intake of this nutrient can promote the growth of new, healthy bone. Previous studies have shown that vitamin C supplements can improve bone density test results. But, unlike calcium, it produced strong, structurally sound bones and reduced the risk of fractures. This is possible because vitamin C plays an important role in the formation of bone’s structural matrix. It is involved in the production and cross-linking of collagen, as well as the development of non-collagen bone matrix proteins. It is also important for differentiating stem cells into bone cells and for regulating the cells that form collagen and cartilage.
A study from Mount Sinai School of Medicinewas able to demonstrate the protective effects of vitamin C against osteoporosis in an animal model. The researchers showed that the mice that were supplemented with vitamin C avoided bone loss. These results were supported by findings published in the International Journal of Experimental Pathology. In this study, the researchers found that vitamin C deficiency caused failure of collagen synthesis. This resulted in symptoms of scurvy, such as spontaneous bone fractures.
More reasons to increase vitamin C intake
Increasing your intake of vitamin C can give you many other health benefits. Some examples of these include the following:
Lower blood pressure — High blood pressure increases the risk of heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in the world. Taking vitamin C supplements has been shown to improve blood pressure. It works by relaxing the blood vessels.
Improved immunity — Vitamin C is most commonly used for its ability to boost immunity. This nutrient stimulates the production of white blood cells that fight against infection. It also has potent antioxidant properties that protect the immune cells from highly reactive molecules.
Lower risk of dementia — The potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of vitamin C are beneficial against dementia. It has also been associated with improved cognitive functions.

For the study, the researchers assessed the vitamin C intake of more than 46,000 men between the ages of 40 and 75 for more 20 years. Every four years, the participants completed mailed health questionnaires related to their diet and vitamin C intake. They also filled out another questionnaire assessing gout.
In the 20-year study, the researchers documented 1,317 new cases of gout. The researchers also observed that the men who consumed the highest amounts of vitamin C had the lowest risk of suffering from gout. Those who took 1,500 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C or more each day for two decades were 45 percent less likely to experience gout, in comparison to those who only took less than 250 mg of vitamin C per day. Those who took 500 mg of vitamin C per day had a 15 percent lower risk, while those who took 1,000 mg per day had their risk reduced by 30 percent.
People with gout can control gout attacks and reduce symptoms naturally by moderating their diet. For one, they should avoid low-carbohydrate diets as this prevents the body from burning fat stores properly. In turn, this can lead to the release of substances known as ketones into the bloodstream. This increase in ketones can lead to a condition called ketosis, which can increase the level of uric acid in the blood.
In addition, it is important to refrain from eating a lot of foods that contain high amounts of purine. Avoiding purine-rich foods ensures that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Some of the foods high in purine you need to avoid include anchovies, beef kidneys, brains, peas, game meats, gravy, herring, liver, mackerel, mushrooms, sardines, scallops, and sweetbreads. However, there are also certain foods that will not trigger gout attacks, worsen symptoms, and affect uric acid levels even though they contain purine. Such foods include asparagus, beans, and other plant-based foods.

Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant and is commonly used to fight off a cold. Recent studies have cast a much brighter light on this underrated and extremely necessary vitamin. Researchers from the University of Kansas found that high doses of intravenously supplied vitamin C effectively eradicates cancer cells in human subjects. Additionally, healthy cells are left intact.
Inexpensive possible cancer treatment may never reach patients
Conducted in vitro, lab tests were performed by injecting high doses of vitamin C into human ovarian cells. These test were also performed on mice and a group of 22 human subjects. The test, according to BBC News, showed the vitamin C competently targeted the ovarian cancer cells while averting healthy cells. This major finding could potentially save millions of lives and at only a fraction of the price of modern cancer treatments. Dr. Jeanne Drisko, co-author of the study, stated to BBC News, “Patients are looking for safe and low-cost choices in their management of cancer. Intravenous vitamin C has that potential based on our basic science research and early clinical data.”
Replicating these results in patients and widespread application would be ideal. However, this may never become a reality. “Because vitamin C has no patent potential, its development will not be supported by pharmaceutical companies. We believe that the time has arrived for research agencies to vigorously support thoughtful and meticulous clinical trial with intravenous vitamin C,” said Qi Chen, lead author of the new study.
These and similar findings have been dismissed by the modern medicine industry because of the lack of patentability. How could pharmaceutical companies justify charging patients hundreds to thousands of dollars for what is basically just nutrients from food? Additionally, how can they validate years of cutting into patients via invasive surgery and putting patients on the conveyer belt of radiation and chemotherapy typically ending with bleak results?
While we may never see widespread application of these types of findings we can take preventative measures to stay healthy. Consuming adequate amounts of vitamin C is essential for optimal health because the body does not manufacture vitamin C. Vitamin C is required for so many basic physiological functions, like the following:
Growth and repair of tissue
Making skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels
Repair cartilage, bones, and teeth
Form scar tissue
Helps the absorption of iron
Helps thyroid hormone production
Helps metabolize folic acid, tyrosine, and tryptophan
Stimulate adrenal function
Stimulates the release of norepinephrine and epinephrine (stress hormones)
Fights free radicals
The majority of people suffer from vitamin C deficiency and most may not even be aware. The main cause of this deficiency is poor diet. Vitamin C should ideally come from a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables. However, this diet isn’t typical for most. Another main cause of vitamin C deficiency is an imbalance of copper. Higher levels of copper can cause issues maintaining a healthy level of vitamin C.
Low levels of vitamin C can increase your risk for various cancers and arthritis. Other health issues caused by low levels of vitamin C include:
Low insulin production
Impaired formation and maintenance of collagen

A new paper published in The Lancet suggests that the more “vaccines” a person gets injected with for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19), the faster his or her body succumbs to an AIDS-like immune wasting syndrome called VAIDS.
Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome begins immediately following the first round of injections. And experts worry that with each subsequent “booster” shot, this process of “immune erosion,” as they call it, only continues to accelerate.
For their research, scientists compared the health outcomes between vaccinated and unvaccinated people in Sweden. Roughly 1.6 million individuals in both groups were studied over the course of nine months.
What was discovered is that the fully vaccinated only have a smattering of immune protection for a very short amount of time – at most six months. After that, the artificial “immunity” provoked by the injections wanes rapidly, leaving a fully vaccinated person with no protection against infection of any kind, just like AIDS.
The unvaccinated, meanwhile, were found to maintain true and lasting immunity because their bodies were not jabbed with immune degrading spike proteins and other mystery chemicals that we now know chip away at the immune system week after week post-injection.
“Doctors are calling this phenomen[on] in the repeatedly vaccinated ‘immune erosion’ or ‘acquired immune deficiency,’ accounting for elevated incidence of myocarditis and other post-vaccine illnesses that either affect them more rapidly, resulting in death, or more slowly, resulting in chronic illness,” reported America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) about the study’s findings.
Covid jabs initiate a cascading failure of the body’s immune response
It is important to remember that covid vaccines are not actually vaccines, at least not in the traditional sense. What they do is cause cells throughout the body to produce just one small portion of the alleged SARS-CoV-2 virus: the spike protein.
As we have long warned, these injections are turning people’s bodies into walking spike protein factories, which causes the body to create antibodies to them. There are serious problems with this, however, that lead to the progressive degradation of the body’s immune capacity and functionality.
“First, these vaccines ‘mis-train’ the immune system to recognize only a small part of the virus (the spike protein),” AFLDS explains. “Variants that differ, even slightly, in this protein are able to escape the narrow spectrum of antibodies created by the vaccines.”
“Second, the vaccines create ‘vaccine addicts,’ meaning persons become dependent upon regular booster shots, because they have been ‘vaccinated’ only against a tiny portion of a mutating virus,” the group adds. “Australian Health Minister Dr. Kerry Chant has stated that COVID will be with us forever and people will ‘have to get used to’ taking endless vaccines. ‘This will be a regular cycle of vaccination and revaccination.’”
A third thing is the simple fact that the jabs do not in any way prevent infection in the nose and upper airways, which is where fully vaccinated people tend to show the highest viral loads. This causes the fully vaccinated to become those ever-dreaded “superspreaders” and a serious danger to society.
Former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson warns that the indefinite and uncontrolled autoimmune response to the coronavirus spike protein that is provoked by these injections could produce “a wave of antibodies called anti-idiotype antibodies or Ab2s that continue to damage human bodies long after clearing either Sars-CoV-2 itself or those spike proteins that the shots cause the body’s cells to produce.”
The spike proteins themselves may produce this second wave of antibodies as well, modulating the immune system’s initial response by binding with and ultimately destroying the first wave of antibodies.
The chairman and former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of international news agency and “fact checker” Reuters is also a top investor and board member of Pfizer.
James C. Smith’s influential roles in both organizations “raises serious conflict of interest concerns,” the National Pulse remarked, because Reuters has not only given extensive coverage to Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot in particular, but it has overwhelmingly moved to “silence skeptics” of the Pfizer shots as well as other COVID-19 shots.
Smith’s roles raise added concern because Reuters, considered a leading international news source and boasting a reach of billions of people, brands itself as a news agency with “integrity” and “freedom from bias.” In fact, a 2021 article praises Reuters as one of the “Top 4 Unbiased Independent World News Sources.”
The National Pulse linked to a compilation of Reuters articles mentioning Pfizer, pointing to about 22,000 over “the last year alone.” Such articles portray Pfizer in an overal positive light, and at times Reuters aims to discredit Pfizer’s critics. The Pulse observed that articles mentioning Pfizer heavily outweigh those mentioning Moderna, which numbered about 8,200.
What gives Smith’s conflict of interest even greater weight is Reuters’ self-appointed role as “fact checker” of news. A survey of Reuters’ more recent fact checks shows the majority are dedicated to defending COVID-19 shots against questioning of their safety or efficacy, or of the motives behind their production and promotion.
For example, one recent “fact check” claims that “there is no evidence currently that COVID-19 vaccines are linked to an increase in sportspeople collapsing or dying due to heart issues such as myocarditis.” It made this claim despite its acknowledgement that “several studies do indeed suggest a link between myocarditis and the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines.”
Former Pfizer vice president Dr. Michael Yeadon has documented at least two dozen recent incidents of athletes collapsing, suffering injury, or dying, mostly from heart issues, noting that the rate of such occurrences has spiked in recent weeks.
However, more often than not, reports from people suffering injury after COVID-19 vaccination testify that doctors have either claimed their symptoms aren’t real or have dismissed out of hand the possibility of any link of those symptoms to COVID-19 jabs.
Other examples of such COVID jab-defending articles include “No evidence that Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine causes Alzheimer’s disease;” and “No evidence to support claim by ex-Pfizer scientist on COVID-19 vaccine safety in children,” referring to Dr. Yeadon’s declaration that “COVID-19 vaccines are ‘50 times more likely’ to kill children than COVID-19 itself.”
One would be hard pressed to find a Reuters “fact check” that admits any criticism of Pfizer COVID-19 shots, or COVID-19 shots in general, into its final analysis.
Document released by Pfizer apparently as a result of a Freedom Of Information court order in the USA reveals a vast array of previously unknown vaccine adverse effects compiled from official sources around the world.
Pfizer concedes this is ‘a large increase’ in adverse event reports and that even this huge volume is under reported.
Over 100+ diseases are listed, many very serious.
This document was compiled by Pfizer in the very early days of the vaccine rollout in NZ but was possibly not supplied to our government.
All of these are minor, requiring little or no treatment other than rest, with the exception of severe allergic reactions, myocarditis and pericarditis (inflammation of the heart). As a result, most of the many thousands of New Zealanders reporting adverse effects post vaccination have been sent home with little more than advice to take an aspirin and rest. Some have been told that their conditions may be unrelated medical events, psychosomatic, or due to anxiety on their part.
Relying on the short official Pfizer fact sheet as a guide, Medsafe, our NZ medicines regulatory body, has only accepted one out of the 100+ deaths actually reported to them as related to vaccination. Most are listed as unrelated, under investigation, or unknowable. By contrast, the NZ Health Forum and other groups have collected unofficial reports of adverse effects and death proximate to vaccination. Out of 670+ reports of death compiled by the Forum, 270 have already been investigated by medical professionals and closely linked to known adverse effects. Following the publication of the new Pfizer document many more are expected to be connected with vaccination. Reports describe symptoms such as chest pain, brain fog, extreme fatigue, neurological symptoms, tachycardia, stroke, heart attacks, and many more. Collected data suggests that as many as two-thirds of adverse event enquiries made to medical staff by vaccine recipients have not been reported to CARM—the NZ system of adverse event reporting. Medsafe itself estimates in its Guide to Adverse Reaction Reporting that in NZ only 5% of adverse events are reported. As a result the NZ public is completely unaware of the extent of reported possible risks of vaccination.
The just released Pfizer document which is being circulated widely in the public domain and can downloaded from websites is entitled:
5.3.6 CUMULATIVE ANALYSIS OF POST-AUTHORIZATION ADVERSE EVENT REPORTS OF PF-07302048 (BNT162B2) RECEIVED THROUGH 28-FEB-2021
Therefore the reported side effects predate the vaccine rollout in New Zealand. The report itself was finalised by Pfizer on 30 April 2021. Did Pfizer supply this information to our government during the early days of our universal vaccination programme? If so the results should have been shared with our medical professionals, politicians, and the public. Many of the new 100+ listed new adverse event types now released by Pfizer in this 38 page document pose long term risks to health. Until very recently, the document was being withheld by Pfizer who maintained it should be kept confidential. There is a strong possibility that very large numbers of New Zealanders will suffer long term injury as a result.
How did this happen without anyone’s knowledge?
Even though the Pfizer vaccine had undergone very short trials and had provisional approval only, Medsafe did not update its CARM adverse event reporting system to make it mandatory rather than voluntary.
Medsafe did not advise GPs and Hospital staff to be on high alert for adverse events and report them rapidly and in detail.
The Government ignored the unprecedented numbers of adverse events being reported to Medsafe and circulating in the community and on social media.
The Government instituted a public relations, promotional, and media campaign advising the public that the Pfizer covid-19 mRNA vaccine was completely safe and free of serious side effects, giving the impression that there were no side effects—not even the known serious effects of heart inflammation that Pfizer had already admitted.
Unaccountably, conditions imposed by the contract that our Government signed with Pfizer for the supply of vaccines have not been made public. We suspect that the contract contains standard clauses similar to those used with drugs that have completed safety trials, such as a provision that public discussion of adverse events may only be undertaken in conjunction with the company supplying the drug. If this is the case, it will have hamstrung Medsafe and our Government in their approach to assessment and public discussion of adverse events.
What are the new risks of vaccination?
Anyone reading the new Pfizer adverse event report compilation will be staggered. The sheer density of the technical medical terms and disease names are nevertheless broken down into recognisable and serious categories of illness—kidney failure, stroke, cardiac events, pregnancy complications, inflammation, neurological disease, autoimmune failure, paralysis, liver failure, blood disorders, skin disease, musculoskeletal problems, arthritis, respiratory disease, DVT, blood clots, vascular disease, haemorrhage, loss of sight, Bell’s palsy, and epilepsy.
How has this affected New Zealand?
Whilst even the official Medsafe record of adverse effects and the unofficial lists show that the immediate risks of covid vaccination could be as much as 50 – 300 times greater than even the most risky of previous traditional vaccines (such as the smallpox jab), and whilst the long term effects are unknown, 90% of eligible New Zealanders have gone ahead with vaccination having accepted the assurances of safety and efficacy from the government, or having been forced to get vaccinated under threat of loss of employment and freedom of movement. Feeling the fear of covid that has been generated by reports in the international and local media, most people completing vaccination heaved a great sigh of relief—that is one huge worry off my mind, now I can get on with my life.
Those finding that no immediate insurmountable reaction had surfaced (the majority) understandably agreed with the government: “What is all the fuss about? Why shouldn’t everyone do this, or be made to do this? It is a social good that will protect everyone”
BUT there is a huge iceberg in the path of the good ship New Zealand hidden under the waves of relief. Thousands are quietly suffering debilitating illness, unacknowledged and in some cases untreated by their doctors. For those who survived vaccination without immediate injury this was not a problem because they didn’t know about it apart from one or two complaints from friends that might just be random coincidences.
This has brought about a division in New Zealand society which the government created in the name of public safety. Thousands of dedicated servants of the nation including teachers, health workers, and others are being stigmatised and forced out of their jobs in a manner horrifyingly reminiscent of the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany. The government did this despite knowing that the Pfizer vaccine was neither fully tested, safe, nor particularly effective. Judges handed down decisions in courts supporting the government mandates unaware of crucial mRNA vaccine safety data, all because Pfizer had withheld this information, and the government had not done its due diligence. Had the true position been known, the High Court’s NZ Bill of Rights analysis may well have been different and its provision which guarantees that every individual should be able to make their own medical choices might still be intact.
Pfizer concludes the released document with a statement “Review of the available data for this cumulative PM experience, confirms a favorable benefit:risk balance for BNT162b2.” PM stands for the Post Marketing data set they are evaluating of 42,086 reported adverse events. Pfizer makes this bald claim of benefit despite admitting that “the magnitude of underreporting is unknown”. This document contains no further substantive information in support of this claim of benefit:risk balance other than a mysterious reference to “the known safety profile of the vaccine”.
The benefit:risk argument is in essence saying: covid-19 is a serious illness and our calculations show that more people will be injured by the disease than are being injured by the vaccine, therefore there will be a net benefit. This argument falls over because of at least three very important factors: Firstly treatment options have improved and thereby the risk of serious illness and death from covid has been greatly reduced.
Secondly the risk of covid is not evenly spread. People with comorbidities (other conditions) and the elderly are at very high risk. Most other people are at very low risk. Thus vaccination could subject people at low risk from covid to a higher risk from vaccination. Approaches to preventive health education can reduce the covid risk to people with comorbidities more than vaccination can. For example a study published in the BMJ found that people following a plant based diet have a 73% reduced risk of serious illness. Data from the UK Biobank has been analysed by researchers from Manchester and Oxford Universities and the West Indies who found that shift workers (who typically have disrupted bioclocks) have three times the risk of being hospitalised with covid. Preventive remedies include changes in diet such as the introduction of more fresh fruit, vegetables, and fibre, and reductions in known unhealthy habits such as smoking, excess alcohol consumption, an overly sedentary lifestyle, a predominance of ultra processed foods, and many more.
The third and most significant reason the benefit:risk argument falls over is the sheer range of adverse reaction types observed by Pfizer and kept hidden until now.
How could a single vaccine have such a wide range of effects?
The technical reasons why mRNA vaccines can have such broad effects on human health are understood by those working in gene therapy. Perfectly stable DNA function is critical to life. In turn, cell function integrity is critical to maintaining DNA. Individual cells contain mechanisms to repair their own DNA as many as 70,000 times a day. From this perspective, the in vitro laboratory study recently published in Viruses 2021, 13,2056, is indicative. It suggests a possible mechanism for vaccine harm. The study found that the spike protein localises in the nucleus and inhibits DNA damage repair by impeding access of key DNA repair proteins. The findings reveal a potential molecular pathway by which the covid spike protein might impede adaptive immunity. They underscore the potential side effects of the full-length spike-based mRNA vaccines.
Despite a degree of cellular autonomy, the nervous system and the physiology must and does function as a whole. The entire nervous system including the immune system is a ‘part and whole’ network. The whole is in every part, the DNA is in every cell, but cell function is also related to a generalised and interconnected genetic network—the holistic functioning of the physiological network is critical to its efficiency. Thus physiological network stability (health) can be impaired by the introduction of pieces of active genetic code (biologic instructions) like those contained in mRNA vaccines.
An analogy will make this clear. We are familiar with computer networks. A very common backbone of most commercial systems is produced by Microsoft. Each computer contains the Microsoft system and the network also runs under its system. The system is supported by computer code—a set of complex instructions written by Microsoft. Individual computers can perform standalone tasks and can communicate with other computers to keep the organisation running smoothly. This can be compared to our physiology. There are many systems in the body: immune system, circulatory system, digestive system, limbic system, homeostatic mechanisms, musculoskeletal structure, neural networks, and so on. They perform apparently stand alone functions, but all run on the basis of the same genetic code contained in our DNA and communicate with one another during the process of maintaining health. Back to our analogy: office staff sometimes send messages full of spelling errors to one another but this doesn’t harm the network. If however a computer virus written in code is sent by one computer it can overwhelm and crash network function because it affects the operating system. Some networks are protected by good firewalls and others are vulnerable. The Covid vaccine introduces a sequence of information written in genetic code into our physiology. It is no wonder that it could elicit such a very broad range of adverse effects, some of which are so serious as to be analogous to a computer network crash. Some individuals have strong immune systems and are little affected, others experience problems in one or other systems. The fact that a sequence of foreign code has been introduced into the physiology produces major risks to health, risks that those working in gene therapy for the last few decades are very familiar with.
The extremely broad range of adverse effects revealed by the Pfizer document is the physiological signature of a general control system failure, a failure of the body’s overall integration and function. It is not plausible to suggest otherwise. That is why experts in genomics, even as I write, are pondering fundamental questions about the action and safety of mRNA vaccines. They are also urging caution.
The NZ government agreed commercial terms with a single company for vaccine supply. It is possible that vital information was withheld. The public was kept in ignorance of known risks. This has divided our society and undermined our fundamental Kiwi tolerance on the basis of not only incomplete but misleading safety data. The government is asleep at the wheel. Knowing full well that safety trials were incomplete, the government apparently accepted information supplied by multinational commercial interests at face value. This should be a ‘never again’ moment. There are huge lessons to be learned and an apology owed to the whole population. The provisions of the NZ BIll of Rights should be given constitutional status. The vaccine mandates should be withdrawn and those affected by them compensated. The proposed vaccination of 5 -11 year olds should be stopped.
We are living in a world and at a time when the creation of a new “life-saving” vaccine against the dreaded COVID-19 virus is actually acting as a force of division.
Pfizer, Astro Zeneca, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson “miracle cures” served nearly one full year after being first introduced to the public are now an instrument by which the “unvaccinated” are facing a form of apartheid. Now, unless you have been fully vaccinated, there are campuses you are no longer welcomed to attend university classes alongside the fully vaccinated. You can no longer be admitted into restaurants, gyms, theatres, bars, or public events. If you worked for the federal government and did not get the jab you will suddenly find yourself out of work with no compensation.
Worse, there are frequently marks of scorn in public opinion pages. If people are going to hospital because of COVID, it’s the “anti-vaxxers” fault. If vaccinated people end up in the hospital, it’s the “anti-vaxxers” fault. Why are we not done with this horrible illness? It’s being dragged on because of the damned “anti-vaxxers!”
Who knows? Before long we may even blame the “anti-vaxxers” for inflation and organized crime!
If we would only just take the vaccine, our troubles would all be over. The unvaccinated’s unwillingness to take a vaccine, even though it is an experimental vaccine with some pretty significant costs to some of the recipients, they are described as selfish, conspiracy theorists, and misguided by mis-information.
Beyond even these signals, it is hard even to get representatives of the two groups together to have a sane conversation. I have myself encountered the same gap just trying to find doctors or researchers from the “pro-Vaxx” (“pro-science” they prefer to call themselves) to engage in a civil conversation about COVID vaccination with people who, they say, have taken the “flat-earth society” position.
Divisions are so counter-productive and so unnecessary in our society, especially when the cause is so seemingly trivial. If at all possible, it would be advantageous to try to build some sort of a bridge connecting the growing chasm between rival families. And that is where this episode of the Global Research News Hour attempts to hail one person on the opposite end for a talk about our non-stopping pandemic.
Dr Tara Moriarty is active trying to serve Canadians by setting up ZOOM session to correspond with Canadians about the safety of these drugs and what she calls mis-information regarding claims to the contrary. Recently she engaged in a conversation with a so-called “vaccine hesitant” host just to see how she would react to some of the points we have been hearing about on this program. We leave it to listeners to listen to the facts and come to their own conclusions.
Dr Tara Moriarty is an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto in the Faculty of Dentistry with cross appointment to the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology in the Faculty of Medicine.

In early September 2021, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren sent a letter to Andy Jassy, chief executive officer of Amazon.com, demanding an “immediate review” of Amazon’s algorithms to weed out books peddling “COVID misinformation,” stressing that Amazon’s sale of such books was “potentially unlawful”
Warren specifically singled out my book, “The Truth About COVID-19,” co-written with Ronnie Cummins, founder and director of the Organic Consumers Association (OCA), as a prime example of “highly-ranked and favorably-tagged books based on falsehoods about COVID-19 vaccines and cures” that she wants banned
As a government official, it is illegal for Warren to violate the U.S. Constitution, and pressuring private businesses to do it for her is not a legal workaround
Cummins and I, along with our publisher, Chelsea Green Publishing, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who wrote our foreword, are now suing Warren, both in her official and personal capacities, for violating our First Amendment rights and scaring book sellers into pulling and/or suppressing sales of our book
Ironically, Warren’s claims of misinformation are themselves misinformation that puts lives at risk
In early September 2021, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren sent a letter1 to Andy Jassy, chief executive officer of Amazon.com, demanding an “immediate review” of Amazon’s algorithms to weed out books peddling “COVID misinformation,” stressing that Amazon’s sale of such books was “potentially unlawful.”2,3,4
Warren specifically singled out my book, “The Truth About COVID-19,” co-written with Ronnie Cummins, founder and director of the Organic Consumers Association (OCA), as a prime example of “highly-ranked and favorably-tagged books based on falsehoods about COVID-19 vaccines and cures” that she wanted banned.
“Dr. Mercola has been described as ‘the most influential spreader of coronavirus misinformation online,” Warren wrote,5 adding: “Not only was this book the top result when searching either ‘COVID-19’ or ‘vaccine’ in the categories of ‘All Departments’ and ‘Books’; it was tagged as a ‘Best Seller’ by Amazon and the ‘#1 Best Seller’ in the ‘Political Freedom’ category.
The book perpetuates dangerous conspiracies about COVID-19 and false and misleading information about vaccines. It asserts that vitamin C, vitamin D and quercetin … can prevent COVID-19 infection … And the book contends that vaccines cannot be trusted …”
Warren Fancies Herself Above the Law
Warren should know that as a government official, it is illegal for her violate the U.S. Constitution, and pressuring private businesses to do it for her is not a legal workaround.
Since she willfully ignores the law, Cummins and I, along with our publisher, Chelsea Green Publishing, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who wrote our foreword, are suing Warren, both in her official and personal capacities, for violating our First Amendment rights. The federal lawsuit, in which Warren is listed as the sole defendant, was filed in the state of Washington. As noted in our complaint:
“Once upon a time, the First Amendment was understood to guarantee that books challenging governmental orthodoxy could be sold without fear of governmental intimidation or reprisal.
Almost sixty years ago, in Bantam Books v. Sullivan, 372 U.S. 58 (1963), the Supreme Court held that state officials violated the First Amendment by sending letters to booksellers warning that the sale of certain named books was potentially unlawful.
The ‘vice’ in such letters and in the ‘veiled threat’ of legal repercussions they communicated, explained the Court, is that they allow government to achieve censorship while doing an end-run around the judiciary, ‘provid[ing] no safeguards whatever against the suppression of … constitutionally protected’ speech, thus effecting an unconstitutional ‘prior restraint.’
It made no difference that the officials who sent the letter lacked the ‘power to apply formal legal sanctions’ — i.e., that the officials did not themselves have the power to sanction or prosecute the booksellers in any way. Indeed this fact made the unconstitutionality more apparent.
The officials ‘are not law enforcement officers; they do not pretend that they are qualified to give or that they attempt to give distributors only fair legal advice … [T]hey acted … not to advise but to suppress.’
It also made no difference, the Court expressly found, that the letters were framed as mere ‘exhort[ation]’ or that the booksellers were in theory ‘free’ to ignore the letters, because the officials had ‘deliberately set about to achieve the suppression of publications deemed ‘objectionable’,’ and ‘people do not lightly disregard public officers’ veiled threats.’
Today, certain members of the United States Congress have apparently forgotten, or think they are above, the law set forth in Bantam Books.”
Warren’s Attack on Constitutionally Protected Speech
There’s no doubt our book, “The Truth About COVID-19,” is constitutionally protected speech, and that Warren’s letter is calling on Amazon to suppress protected speech.
In our book, we share viewpoints, ideas, opinions, verifiable facts and factual hypotheses that our federal government just so happens to disfavor, as it counters their chosen narrative that SARS-CoV-2 emerged naturally, cannot be prevented by any means other than experimental gene therapy, and cannot be treated by any other means than certain experimental and exorbitantly costly drugs.
Since the start of the pandemic, government has systematically sought to suppress the kind of information shared in our book, using the same tactic as Warren used against us here — warning Internet-based companies that if they don’t censor these views, the full weight of the government’s wrath will be turned against them. As explained in our complaint:
“The term ‘vaccine misinformation’ as Warren uses it is propagandistic and false. As she uses it, ‘vaccine misinformation’ refers to any speech challenging the safety and efficacy of the COVID vaccines, even when that speech consists of factually accurate information or protected opinion …
On September 10, 2021, as a direct result of Warren’s letter, a major national bookseller chain, Barnes and Noble, notified the publisher of The Truth About COVID-19 by email that it would no longer sell the work as an e-book. Barnes and Noble has — for now — reversed that decision.
It is impossible for Plaintiffs to know with certainty whether, as a result of Warren’s letter, Amazon is now covertly demoting, downgrading, or otherwise suppressing The Truth About COVID-19 in numerous ways that would be hidden from view, but Plaintiffs believe that Amazon is in fact covertly taking such action.
Even if no bookseller in the country had yielded to Warren’s threats, her letter would still be actionable as a clear violation of the First Amendment.
In Backpage.com, LLC v. Dart, 807 F.3d 229 (7th Cir. 2015) (Posner, J.), relying on Bantam Books, the Court held that a governmental official ‘violates a plaintiff’s First Amendment rights’ if by ‘threat’ or ‘intimidation’ the official attempts to induce ‘a third party’ to stop ‘publishing or otherwise disseminating the plaintiff’s message,’ and emphasized that ‘such a threat is actionable and thus can be enjoined even if it turns out to be empty — the victim ignores it, and the threatener folds his tent.’
Such threats go ‘by the name of ‘prior restraint,’ and a prior restraint is the quintessential first-amendment violation.’ Accordingly, Plaintiffs ask this Court to vindicate clearly established law, to vindicate Plaintiffs’ constitutional rights, to vindicate the First Amendment itself, by declaring Warren’s conduct unconstitutional and by enjoining her from repeating such conduct in future.”
Warren Calls Out ‘Misinformation’ With Misinformation
In our complaint, we also emphasize the fact that Warren’s claims of misinformation are themselves misinformation. For example, Warren claims our book falsely “asserts that … vitamin D … can prevent COVID-19 infection.” According to Warren, this claim has no scientific basis. This is clearly and verifiably false as there are many studies, published in 2020 and 2021, supporting this claim.
A recent systematic review of the literature concluded that ‘blood vitamin D status can determine the risk of being infected with COVID-19, seriousness of COVID-19, and mortality from COVID-19. Therefore, maintaining appropriate levels of Vitamin D through supplementation or natural methods … is recommended for the public to be able to cope with the pandemic.’
For example, in May 2021, the National Institutes of Health’s website, PubMed.gov, published a Journal of Medical Virology article titled “Vitamin D Deficiency Is Associated With COVID-19 Positivity and Severity of the Disease.”6 Many other scientific articles have also linked vitamin D deficiency with a higher risk of COVID infection, more severe outcomes and increased rates of death.
Indeed, a recent systematic review7 of the literature, posted on the U.S. National Library of Medicine, which is another National Institutes of Health website, concluded that “blood vitamin D status can determine the risk of being infected with COVID-19, seriousness of COVID-19, and mortality from COVID-19.
Therefore, maintaining appropriate levels of Vitamin D through supplementation or natural methods … is recommended for the public to be able to cope with the pandemic.” As noted in our complaint:
“Thus while Warren professes to champion true COVID information to save lives, she is purveying false information that could lead to COVID deaths. Warren is telling people that vitamin D levels don’t matter for COVID, when in fact — as readers would learn from The Truth About COVID-19 — correcting vitamin D deficiencies could save their lives.
By her own logic and according to her own demands, every major social media platform should have banned Warren’s letter as ‘COVID misinformation.’ But officials like Warren only denounce ‘COVID misinformation,’ demand its censorship, and threaten legal repercussions when the statements in question challenge the COVID narrative they support — not when they themselves are misrepresenting the truth about COVID-19.
Warren’s letter further accuses The Truth About COVID-19 of disseminating ‘false and misleading information about vaccines,’ including by (in Warren’s words) ‘contend[ing] that vaccines cannot be trusted.’
The book’s stated thesis about the COVID vaccines is that their effectiveness ‘has been wildly exaggerated and major safety questions have gone unanswered.’ This statement is accurate and well within the bounds of constitutionally protected opinion …
Warren’s letter further cites a June, 2021, review of The Truth About COVID-19 that purports to list examples of the book’s ‘misinformation,’ the first of which is the following: ‘the authors argue that the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus was engineered in a laboratory in Wuhan, China.’ It is true that The Truth About COVID-19 argues that that ‘the preponderance of evidence’ supports the lab-leak theory of the origins of the COVID virus.
But the claim that this position is ‘misinformation’ is, once again, itself misinformation. The lab-leak theory — long denounced as a ‘conspiracy theory’ by federal actors and suppressed on social media — is in fact supported by substantial and growing evidence. See, e.g., Wall St. Journal, ‘Science Closes In on Covid’s Origins: Four studies — including two from WHO — provide powerful evidence favoring the lab-leak theory,’ Oct. 5, 2021.8
The review’s next example of the supposed ‘misinformation’ in the The Truth About COVID-19 is this: the book ‘insists multiple times that the public health measures and restrictions will be permanent. Not true.
The CDC announced that fully vaccinated Americans could resume activities without wearing masks or physically distancing, resume domestic travel, and refrain from quarantine even when following a known exposure to the virus if they remain symptom-free.’
This CDC announcement obviously proved to be false, while the prediction made in The Truth About COVID-19 that health restrictions would continue after vaccination has proved more accurate.
Moreover, it is not the case that the Truth About COVID-19 ‘insists’ that these restrictions will be permanent — it says that certain restrictions on our liberty, beginning in the pandemic, will ‘probably’ be permanent, reflecting a humility about the certainty of one’s assertions that Warren might have profited from.”
This Is Only the Beginning
As noted in a press release by Cummins, this lawsuit is just the beginning. OCA and I are launching a campaign to fight back against the censorship that is taking root. This includes unraveling the threads that lead back to the fake fact checkers and disinformation agents in the media, but all of this will take time, so be patient.
It’s also a costly venture, so if you can afford it, consider making a donation to the OCA. As a thank you, I will match your donations dollar for dollar during the month of November.
As explained by Cummins:
“OCA’s federal lawsuit, filed jointly with Dr. Mercola, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Chelsea Green books is not just directed against Elizabeth Warren, but is intended to establish a legal precedent against the increasing censorship, slander, and intimidation coming from a wide variety of government, corporate, and media sources.
This Big Pharma/Big Media/Big Government Inquisition is fueled by disinformation and dark money coming from powerful international public relations firms such as the Publicis Groupe and front groups such as the so-called Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH).
We are under attack, not because we are purveyors of dangerous disinformation and hate, as Warren and her Establishment cohorts allege, but rather because, in the midst of an international health, economic, and political crisis, we are trying to expose the truth about the lab origins of this catastrophe, and explain how preventive and natural medicine and health, healthy organic food, natural supplements, low-cost generic drugs, strong immune systems, and a healthy environment are our best defenses against chronic disease and engineered pathogens.
We are not anti-vaccine, but rather pro-vaccine safety. We are not purveyors of disinformation, but rather firm defenders of free speech, unobstructed scientific inquiry, and freedom of choice …
We are castigated as ‘conspiracy theorists’ for publicizing the behind-the- scenes machinations of billionaires like Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, and their ‘Hall of Shame’ collaborators9in the military-industrial complex.
We are under siege for exposing the existential risks of genetic engineering and lab manipulation, a mad science not only contaminating our food, seeds and animals, but essentially weaponizing pathogenic viruses, bacteria, and insects, part of a catastrophic biological and medical arms race that threatens us all.
We are saddened and alarmed by the now routine attacks on free speech, free association, and medical freedom of choice. We are troubled by the extreme polarization and anger poisoning the body politic, and the debilitating impact of fear-mongering and shaming on our children and the public at large.
We are alarmed by the collateral damage to our health, our psyches, and the entire social fabric by government authoritarianism, virologists and gene engineers playing God, and Big Pharma greed …
America, and the once-hoped-for community of nations, are accelerating toward self-destruction. The body politic is sick, frightened, angry, and divided. People have apparently forgotten how to talk to one another when we disagree on politics, COVID responses, vaccine safety, and a range of other polarizing government dictates.
Former friends and co-workers have become enemies. Meanwhile the forests are burning. Water resources are diminishing … Our children and the most vulnerable are forced to struggle harder than ever, just to survive and preserve their sanity, making it harder and harder maintain a positive outlook, enjoy every day life, much less achieve true happiness.
If COVID-19, the product of mad science and insatiable greed, has taught us anything, it’s that we must transform our food and farming systems and take control of our health.
We must acknowledge, prevent, and resolve the dietary, environmental, and public health-related comorbidities of our ailing population, strengthen our immune systems to fight off chronic disease and pathogens, and provide special protection for the most vulnerable.
We must bring profit-at-any-cost corporations, captured media and regulatory agencies, indentured politicians, Silicon Valley surveillance capitalists, out-of-control genetic engineers, virologists, and bioweapons profiteers to heel.”
Stop the Madness
To this end, OCA has launched a Stop the Mad Science campaign. This global grassroots campaign aims to ban the engineering of viruses, bacteria and all potential pandemic pathogens (PPPs). Mounting evidence suggests COVID-19 was indeed the result of gain-of-function (GOF) research, paid for in part by U.S. taxpayers and carried out by U.S. and Chinese researchers.
Unless we put an end to this kind of dangerous research (and it goes on worldwide, not just in the U.S. and China), COVID won’t be the last manmade pandemic we’ll have to face. More than 65,000 people have already signed the petition in support of this effort. Please add your signature here if you haven’t done so already. As noted by Cummins:
“Current ongoing experiments, routinely funded with our tax dollars, that need to be stopped immediately include genetically engineering SARS-CoV-2 so that it can overcome or bypass natural immunity; combining the SARS-CoV-2 virus with deadly anthrax bacteria; engineering the bird flu and Ebola to be more transmissible; and other criminally insane experiments — hiding behind the excuse that lab and genetic engineering of pathogens are necessary for ‘biodefense’ and ‘biomedicine.’
Over the next six months we will begin to organize protests and picket lines outside the GoF labs and institutions where these dangerous experiments are being carried out. These street protests will be amplified by public education, petition gathering, litigation, and grassroots lobbying.”
In the week ending November 12, 2021, the U.K. reported 2,047 more deaths than occurred during the same period between 2015 and 2019; heart disease and strokes appear to be behind many of the excess deaths
In the last 13 weeks alone, about 107,700 seniors died above the normal rate, despite a 98.7% injection rate
In Vermont, where the majority are also injected, excess deaths are the highest they’ve been since before the pandemic
An investigation using official data from NHS and the U.K.’s Office for National Statistics (ONS) found that deaths among teenagers increased 47% since they started getting COVID-19 shots
Deaths from COVID-19 also went up among 15- to 19-year-olds after the shots were rolled out for this age group
Even with mass injections and some receiving two and even three shots in their arm, excess deaths are rising
Throughout the pandemic, mass injections have been dangled as the way back to normalcy — the only solution to end the pandemic and save lives from COVID-19. Now even with mass injections and some receiving two and even three shots in their arm, excess deaths are rising nonetheless.
In the week ending November 12, 2021, the U.K. reported 2,047 more deaths than occurred during the same period between 2015 and 2019. However, COVID-19 cannot be entirely to blame, as it was listed on the death certificates for only 1,197 people.1 Further, since July, non-COVID deaths in the U.K. have been higher than the weekly average in the five years prior to the pandemic.
Heart disease and strokes appear to be behind many of the excess deaths, with the Financial Times reporting, “The new phase of excess deaths raises the possibility that since the summer more people have been losing their lives as a result of strains on the NHS or lack of early diagnosis of serious illness …”2 A similar scenario is playing out in the U.S.
More Seniors Dying, Despite Mass Injections
On Twitter, Silicon Valley software engineer Ben M. (@USMortality) revealed that in the last 13 weeks alone, about 107,700 seniors died above the normal rate, despite a 98.7% vaccination rate.3 In another example, he used data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, census.gov and his own calculations to show excess deaths rising in Vermont even as the majority of adults have been injected.
“Vermont had 71% of their entire population vaccinated by June 1, 2021,” he tweeted. “That’s 83% of their adult population, yet they are seeing the most excess deaths now since the pandemic!”4
Deaths Among Teenagers Increase After Jabs
An investigation by The Exposé, using official data from NHS and the U.K.’s Office for National Statistics (ONS), found that deaths among teenagers increased 47% since they started getting COVID-19 shots.5 Not only that, but deaths from COVID-19 also went up among 15- to 19-year-olds after the shots were rolled out for this age group.
“We decided to take a look at official Office for National Statistics (ONS) data on deaths registered weekly to see if there was an uptick in deaths in people aged between 15 and 19 following the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine to this age group,” the report notes.6
Between the week ending June 26 and the week ending September 18, 2020, 148 deaths were reported among 15- to 19-year-olds. However, between the week ending June 25, 2021, and the week ending September 17, 2021, 217 deaths occurred among 15- to 19-year-olds. According to the investigation:7
“This shows that the number of deaths between June 19th 2021 and September 17th 2021 among teens aged 15 and over were 47% higher than the number of deaths in this age group during the same period in 2020, and the increase in deaths began at precisely the same time teens started receiving the Covid-19 vaccine.
Our investigation of ONS data also revealed further concerns about Covid-19 deaths in people between the age of 15 and 19. The same 2021 ONS dataset shows that since teens started getting the Covid-19 vaccine there has been at least one Covid-19 related death recorded in seven of the thirteen weeks between June 19th and September 17th 2021. A total of 8 deaths in this time frame.
Yet in the fifteen weeks prior to teens over the age of 15 receiving the Covid-19 vaccine, just a single death was recorded associated with Covid-19 among this age group.
Correlation does not equal causation, but it is extremely concerning to see that deaths have increased by 47% among teens over the age of 15, and Covid-19 deaths have also increased among this age group since they started receiving the Covid-19 vaccine, and it is perhaps one coincidence too far.”
Significant concerns have been raised, for instance, surrounding antibody‐dependent enhancement (ADE), and the possibility that COVID-19 vaccines could worsen COVID-19 disease via ADE.8
Florida Has Been Heavily Criticized — Wrongly
Certain states have stood out for their refusal to buy into the draconian public health measures that were adopted throughout much of the U.S. Florida is chief among them. After a spring 2020 lockdown, Florida business, schools and restaurants reopened, while mask mandates were rejected.
“If Florida had simply done no worse than the rest of the country during the pandemic, that would have been enough to discredit the lockdown strategy,” John Tierney, a contributing science columnist for The New York Times, stated, noting that the state acted as the control group in a natural experiment. By summer 2021, the results spoke for themselves:9
“Florida’s mortality rate from Covid is lower than the national average among those over 65 and also among younger people, so that the state’s age-adjusted Covid mortality rate is lower than that of all but ten other states. And by the most important measure, the overall rate of ‘excess mortality’ (the number of deaths above normal), Florida has also done better than the national average.
Its rate of excess mortality is significantly lower than that of the most restrictive state, California, particularly among younger adults, many of whom died not from Covid but from causes related to the lockdowns: cancer screenings and treatments were delayed, and there were sharp increases in deaths from drug overdoses and from heart attacks not treated promptly.”
After an uptick in cases in late summer, rates plummeted by the fall. In late October 2021, Florida had one of the lowest COVID-19 daily average case rates per 100,000 residents in the U.S. “Without mandates or lockdowns, COVID-19 cases in Florida have decreased 90% since August,” said Gov. Ron DeSantis. “In addition to cases, hospitalizations have plummeted in our state.”10
Also since August, COVID-19 cases in school-aged children decreased 87% since school started back into session, while cases in young adults ages 18 to 24 decreased 93%11 Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nuñez added in a press release, “As Florida now ranks lowest in the continental U.S. in terms of COVID-19 rates per capita, we are proud to have stood firm in protecting liberty throughout the pandemic.”12
By the end of November 2021, Florida was the only state in the U.S. with low community transmission in virtually every county. While the rest of the U.S. was seeing high, substantial or moderate spread, COVID-19 was largely absent in the sunshine state.13 On Twitter, Scott Ruesterholz wrote:14
“I’ve spoken frequently about how COVID waves clearly are driven by weather (South struggles in the summer; North in the winter). This should be considered when assigning “blame” or “credit” to a governor–some trends supercede policy. Nonetheless this map is something–Florida!”
Shots Double Risk of Acute Coronary Syndrome
It’s concerning that heart-related events appear to be a leading factor behind the excess deaths being seen in the U.K., especially considering researchers have found Pfizer and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 shots dramatically increase biomarkers associated with thrombosis, cardiomyopathy and other vascular events following injection.16
The study, published in the November 16, 2021, issue of the journal Circulation, concluded 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.”
People who had been jabbed more than doubled their risk of acute coronary syndrome (ACS), an umbrella term that includes not only heart attacks, but also a range of other conditions involving abruptly reduced blood flow to your heart. Signs and symptoms of ACS typically begin very suddenly and include:17
Chest pain/discomfort, often described as aching, pressure, tightness or burning sensations
Pain that radiates from your chest to your shoulders, arms, upper abdomen, back, neck and/or jaw
Nausea and/or vomiting
Shortness of breath
Sudden heavy sweating
Lightheadedness, dizziness and/or fainting
Unusual or inexplicable fatigue
Patients who received a two-dose regimen of mRNA more than doubled their five-year ACS risk, driving it from an average of 11% to 25%. In a November 21, 2021, tweet, cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra wrote:18
“Extraordinary, disturbing, upsetting. We now have evidence of a plausible biological mechanism of how mRNA vaccine may be contributing to increased cardiac events. The abstract is published in the highest impact cardiology journal so we must take these findings very seriously.”
Can You Lessen the Damaging Effects?
If you now believe that getting the COVID-19 jab was a mistake and wish to lessen your doubled risk of cardiac complications, there are a few basic strategies I would advise.
Make certain you measure your vitamin D level and take enough vitamin D orally (typically about 8,000 units/day for most adults) and/or get sensible sun exposure to make sure your level is 60 to 80 ng/ml (150 to 200 nmol/l).
Eliminate all vegetable (seed) oils in your diet, which involves eliminating nearly all processed foods and most meals in restaurants unless you convince the chef to only cook with butter. Avoid any sauces or salad dressings in restaurants as they are loaded with seed oils. Also avoid chicken and pork as they are very high in linoleic acid, the omega-6 fat that is far too high in nearly everyone and contributes to oxidative stress that causes heart disease.
Consider taking around 500 milligrams/day of NAC, as it helps prevent blood clots and is a precursor for your body to produce the important antioxidant glutathione.
Consider fibrinolytic enzymes that digest the fibrin that leads to blood clots, strokes and pulmonary embolisms. The dose is typically two, twice a day, but must be taken on an empty stomach, either an hour before or two hours after a meal. Otherwise, the enzymes will digest your food and not the fibrin in the blood clot.
Ventavia, a company hired by Pfizer to conduct vaccine trials, has been caught lying about a whistleblowers claims.
The company claimed that Brook Jackson never worked on the clinical trials.
Jackson quickly provided many documents to prove that she did.
How is it that a company that is caught in a complete lie, is a better source than a person that consistently provides evidence for their claims?
How can we trust media outlets that downplay the lies of medical companies and put out defamatory information on individuals?
Whistleblower Brook Jackson shared dozens of documents, recordings, pictures and texts with the British Medical Journal (BMJ) that claimed that during Pfizer trials data was falsified, patients were unblinded, and that employees were not adequately trained for vaccine administration.
Jackson spent two weeks in September 2020 as a regional manager overseeing vaccine trials Pfizer contracted Ventavia Research Group to perform. During this time she made her concerns known to her superiors at Ventavia and the FDA, at which point she was fired.
Soon after the article was published a Ventavia spokesperson, Lauren Foreman, was quoted in MedPage today saying, “no part of her (Jackson) job responsibilities concerned the clinical trials at issue.”
Jackson quickly went public with some partly redacted personal information – her hiring letter that outlines her responsibilities and duties with Ventavia. It clearly states that she was involved in “quality assurance,” among other roles during the trial.
She has also released other documents as proof. These include emails, and a copy of a signature sheet and a delegations of duties log from one of the Pfizer trial sites.
With almost 20 years of clinical research experience, Jackson’s jobs have been detail oriented and about meticulous collection of information and data. She seems to have utilized these skills to cover her bases in regards to bringing light to the flaws in the Pfizer clinical trials. And even further to prove that Ventavia was out right lying in saying she did not work on the trial.
Jackson has served Ventavia a legal letter demanding a public retraction of the statement Foreman made.
As of Dec. 6, 2021 there has yet to be an official retraction statement made by Ventavia. On the MedPage article they have added a part closer to the end of the article that says they received an email from Jackson.
However this article seems to still downplay the fact that Ventavia lied. If you found out that the source that you were trusting to discredit another person’s claims was lying, would you reconsider the trustworthiness of that source?
Consistently Jackson has provided physical evidence to back up her claims with nothing to gain. While Ventavia, who has a lot to lose, is allowed to lie and is still considered the more reliable source.
The BMJ issued a response to the questioning of the validity of original article. It outlines more evidence and brings into question even more issues that may have taken place in the Ventavia Pfizer vaccine trials.
As for Jackson, she has recently shared on twitter that she is working again in the industry she has been for almost two decades. She continues to speak out and share evidence that she accumulated while overseeing Pfizer clinical trials as a regional manager.
A new survey found that 54% of likely US voters are concerned about COVID vaccine side effects.
The survey asked questions to 1000 US citizens via telephone and internet.
Data in vaccine adverse event reporting systems seem to justify people’s concerns, however, not all take data in VAERS seriously.
If the CDC tells citizens to report adverse events to VAERS, but the CDC does not investigate VAERS claims, what use is the reporting system?
If VAERS is not a reliable source, what is a reliable source for tracking nation wide adverse vaccine reactions?
According to a new Rasmussen report,over 50% of likely US voters are concerned that COVID-19 vaccines could have harmful side effects, as a result, they opposed federal vaccine mandates.
A national telephone and online survey between Dec 1 and Dec 2 polled 1000 likely voting American’s and found that that 54% are worried over COVID vaccine side effects, with 27% of them considered very concerned. While 44% say they aren’t worried, with 19% stating they are not concern at all.
Currently in the US, 234,269,053 people (71% of the population) have received at least one dose, and 197,838,728 people (60% of the population) have been fully vaccinated.
Are They Justified?
I believe there is a signal coming from vaccine reporting systems that is justifying the feelings people have around vaccine safety. Instead of assuming people come to these conclusions from ‘online misinformation’, let’s explore what the data say.
Firstly, these 54% of voters are considered anti-vaxxers. Not just by mainstream media propaganda, but because the definition in the Miriam Webster dictionary for ‘anti-vaxxer is as follows: a person who opposes the use of vaccines or regulations mandating vaccination.
This sort of sentiment and propaganda has muddied the vaccine injury conversation around the globe and created a divisive culture we are living in. Instead of being curious, wishing to understand our fellow humans with an open heart, we have become tense, judgmental, and are holding our positions firmly.
To set a context for this sensemaking exercise, I invite you to keep in mind the following. A study from July 2021 by John P.A. Ioannidis concluded that your chances of dying from COVID if you are infected with it, in the following age groups is:
In the US, car accident mortality is 1 in 106, just under 1% according to The National Safety Council. But do we have a deep level of fear getting into a car everyday? Not really, yet our chances of dying from a car crash is similar to that of dying of COVID, but public sentiment around COVID mortality has created a great deal of fear that we’ve lost sense of relative risk.
When we lose sense of relative risk we lose a clear understanding of how to mitigate our risk, a basic human tendency that we use everyday. Risk mitigation is subjective. Not all of us are going to assess risk the same way, but that’s where autonomy of choice comes in.
Pfizer COVID vaccine trial data indicates severe adverse events are occurring in about 1.2% of people who are vaccinated. Perhaps those who are young, who’s chance of COVID death is extremely low, are assessing risk and saying “why take a vaccine that may be more risky than COVID itself?”
To explore more closely, in the US, the case mortality rate is 1.7% according to Johns Hopkins University, which means, if you get COVID, the observed chance of dying across all age groups combined is 1.7%. This includes 80+ year olds who have a 600X greater chance of death compared to 18 – 29 year olds for example.
Crude mortality rate would be much lower than 1.7% of course, as this rate also includes your risk of infection, which we don’t have clear numbers on but we know is not that high based on case numbers.
Here I’m comparing risk of death to severe injury, which isn’t entirely fair, but since crude mortality is so low for young people when it comes to COVID, the chances of severe injury combined with death from the vaccines are a reasonable comparison based on the data available.This is important as what humans are doing right now in making vaccine choices is assessing there risk.
A person would also have to consider how their choice affects others in their community, which is a fair statement to make. However, at the same time, others have to be able to respect that a person is putting themselves at risk when taking medical interventions, and thus people should have the right to assess that risk for themselves. The current COVID vaccines don’t stop transmission or infection, making them a symptom management tool, not ‘vaccines’ by classic definition.
VAERS reports are not verified, but it is all we have since the CDC tells doctors and citizens who experience problems with vaccines to report them to VAERS. We must take VAERS cases seriously as they are the signal that something is going wrong.
Then there is the issue of underreporting. How common is it?
“Preliminary data were collected from June 2006 through October 2009 on 715,000 patients, and 1.4 million doses (of 45 different vaccines) were given to 376,452 individuals. Of these doses, 35,570 possible reactions (2.6 percent of vaccinations) were identified. This is an average of 890 possible events, an average of 1.3 events per clinician, per month. These data were presented at the 2009 AMIA conference.
Adverse events from drugs and vaccines are common, but underreported. Although 25% of ambulatory patients experience an adverse drug event, less than 0.3% of all adverse drug events and 1-13% of serious events are reported to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Likewise, fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported. Low reporting rates preclude or slow the identification of “problem” drugs and vaccines that endanger public health. New surveillance methods for drug and vaccine adverse effects are needed.”
Since this report was finalized in 2011, the US government has known they have no reliable reporting system for vaccine injury, yet they have done nothing to improve the system or create a new one. Why?
As a side, and to reiterate, the only meaningful data returned so far from accurate vaccine reporting comes from Pfizer’s most recent interim report, where records show the Pfizer vaccine causes ‘severe adverse events’ in about 1.2% of those who received the vaccine.
Pfizer trial data from a recent Freedom of Information request states that serious adverse events can be facial paralysis otherwise known as Bell’s palsy, spontaneous abortion, heart attacks, myocarditis, seizures, brain hemorrhage etc.
Given these data points, no one can say with any form of certainty how common severe reactions are, making it a difficult topic to report on and discuss. To say vaccine events are ‘extremely rare’ would be inaccurate and disingenuous – because it can’t be known, and we have a signal from VAERS that needs our attention.
This is why the belief that things are black and white when it comes to the safety of vaccines, and that “the science is settled,” continues to be legitimately challenged in many ways, yet pro-vaccine advocates continually use ridicule and labels like “antivax conspiracy theory” in order to paint the perception that there are no issues. What is causing us to be so divided? Have we lost our sense of connection with one another?
For me, if the COVID vaccine was completely safe, effective & necessary to protect other people for the good of the planet, I’d be the first one in line. My heart is in the right place and so are the hearts of many others. So if anyone is going to entice me or others who are hesitant to take the shot, they’re going to have to provide good information, and not stick to ridicule.
The invitation here is for humans to embrace curiosity. Join one another with an open heart, side by side, and explore what is happening here so we can keep people as healthy and thriving as possible. The moment we believe we KNOW for sure, we get ourselves into trouble. Things become tense, divisive and this leads nowhere good.
Make an attempt to listen to those you might not agree with. How did they arrive at their conclusions? Ask them, understand their story their data and their worldview. Perhaps we can learn something from one another instead of just aggressively defending out beliefs.
“NYC, what is it about you?” the old song from the musical Annie starts, going on to say, “No other town in the whole forty-eight can half compare to you.”
It seems New York City is doing its best to keep this reputation of uniqueness intact with its rollout of what Mayor Bill de Blasio “called a first-in-the nation vaccine mandate for private companies.” Employees of any private NYC company will have just three weeks to get the official jab in order to keep putting food on the table, a New York CBS affiliate reports.
Such an announcement will likely bring panic to some and rejoicing to others. But regardless of the camp you find yourself in, this announcement provides a clue … a clue to where we are in the march to totalitarianism.
Urging other state officials to follow in his footsteps, de Blasio and his team of expert helpers touted the benefits of the mandate. Particularly noteworthy is the statement by Dr. Zeke Emanuel, who said that “getting the unvaccinated vaccinated is critical to getting our control. We know that will not happen voluntarily.”
The operative word there is “control.”
De Blasio and his cohorts seem not to have learned that such vaccine mandates are quite ineffective at controlling the virus for a couple of reasons. First, they are ineffective at the government level because courts are increasingly calling their constitutionality into question. This was recently seen both in the mandate for companies with more than 100 employees and the mandate for health workers at hospitals receiving federal funding, which have been halted by judges responding to the multitude of lawsuits filed over the issue.
Vaccine mandates are increasingly unable to control things on the health and medicinal side as well, simply because the vaccines themselves are proving more and more ineffective, a fact former New York Times journalist Alex Berenson documents in his new book, Pandemia. Putting trust in vaccines was a problem from the beginning, Berenson explains, for even the trials that the drug companies used to test the vaccines in the early stages were flawed, giving an unclear picture of the shot’s true effectiveness.
Instead, Berenson writes, the trials showed that both vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna “cause serious side effects in many people, especially after the second shot.” Berenson likens “the sudden collapse of the mRNA vaccine efficacy in the summer of 2021” to something out of classical literature where hubris gets its comeuppance in a harrowing way.
Yet as these attempts to control the virus through mandates fall apart on different levels, government officials, such as those in New York City, persist in seeking to “control the virus” through vaccine mandates. What they may or may not realize, however, is that in their quest to control the virus, they seem to have fallen prey to wanting to control the masses whom they apparently view as their subjects.
It is this desire to control that gives us a hint as to where we are on the totalitarianism timeline. The good news is, judging from philosopher Hannah Arendt’s book, The Origins of Totalitarianism, that we aren’t quite there yet. The bad news is that our leaders have a thirst for totalitarianism and are inching ever closer. It is these same leaders—our elite—that Arendt says are “attracted by the momentum of totalitarianism itself; the masses have to be won by propaganda.”
Arendt goes on to explain the role control plays in a regime of true totalitarianism:
Wherever totalitarianism possesses absolute control, it replaces propaganda with indoctrination and uses violence not so much to frighten people (this is done only in the initial stages when political opposition still exists) as to realize constantly its ideological doctrines and its practical lies.
Given that statement, it would seem we—particularly New York City—are only in the opening act of totalitarian rule. Clearly political opposition to vaccine mandates still exists and as such, government officials are using propaganda and attempting to strongarm the citizenry through fear—fear of the virus, fear of losing a job, fear of ostracization. When the government gains the full control that right now it is grasping so hard to get, we will know by the fact that propaganda is replaced with indoctrination and violence is used to realize its ideologies and lies.
Those who have gone before us and witnessed totalitarianism unfolding before their eyes—such as Hannah Arendt—have left warning signs and indicators of totalitarianism as it emerges. The question is whether we will have eyes to see, courage to fight, and wisdom to even care enough to rally the troops and herd them away from the cliff.
Hardly coming as a surprise in a world where the unvaccinated are now treated as subhuman scum, moments ago New York City announced it will require residents to be fully vaccinated to access indoor dining, entertainment and fitness – a stricter rule than the current requirement for people to have received at least one dose. And yes, the new rule also means that kids age 5-11 will also be required to have at least one shot to enter restaurants, de Blasio said.
“Vaccine mandates are the one thing that really breaks through,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in an interview on MSNBC Monday. “Let’s lean into it even more.”
The mayor also called the mandates a “preemptive strike”, once again urging all New Yorkers to get the jab, which is particularly unpopular among minority populations like black New Yorkers.
“We in New York City have decided to use a preemptive strike, to really do something bold to stop the further growth of COVID and the dangers it’s causing to all of us,” de Blasio said. “So as of today, we’re going to announce a first-in-the-nation measure. Our health commissioner will announce a vaccine mandate for private sector employers across the board.”
But before making this declarations, de Blasio should probably check out Belgium, which is over a month into its new mask mandate and with 87.4% of adults fully vaccinated, its cases just hit an all time high.
Cases in Belgium are the highest they’ve ever been, over a month into their new mask mandate and with 87.4% of adults fully vaccinated so I’d love to know why the media hasn’t done a story on how Ron DeSantis managed to create his Florida state guard and invade Belgium so quickly pic.twitter.com/z6fkjV2z9k— IM (@ianmSC) December 4, 2021
Naturally, New York has seen a post-Thanksgiving rise in Covid-19 infections in addition to its first few cases of the omicron variant. The cases so far appear to be unrelated, according to governor Kathy Hochul, but officials have warned people to assume there is already community spread.
“We have to assume community spread at this point,” de Blasio said. “Omicron is here.”
Although if this were true, the city would probably have confirmed more than a small handful of omicron cases.
The city last week strengthened its recommendation for residents to wear masks indoors regardless of vaccination status and announced additional vaccine mandates on childcare workers and private school employees.
Meanwhile, over the weekend, the NYT sounded the alarm that hospitals in upstate New York are getting “crushed” thanks to a recent surge in COVID cases. However, hospitals in other parts of the northeast have seen a much more modest uptick in patients. But upstate, hospital capacity has decreased by 10%. It’s one reason Gov. Kathy Hochul has temporarily suspended “elective” surgeries.
This year, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund turned 77 years old. Since their founding in 1944, these two international financial behemoths have grown into massive bureaucracies and are largely controlled by US special interests who push policies that run counter to the interests of the rest of the world.
Through cronyism and predatory lending, the World Bank and IMF have systematically devoured the national sovereignty of countries worldwide in order to bend those countries to the will of the oligopoly. Through loans and leveraged debt, these highly corrupt institutions have forced countries into servitude, violating international pacts and human rights in the process. They have also made it entirely clear that they have no qualms about supporting dictators.
The World Bank uses this aforementioned control to amplify the will of the massive corporations whose interests it serves to protect. The vaccine manufacturers are part of this racket and on Friday, World Bank President David Malpass made a telling admission. In a nutshell, Malpass stated that Pfizer won’t go into countries unless those governments grant them immunity from any an all damages caused by their vaccine.
If the country allows individuals or organizations to sue after Pfizer hurts them, Pfizer stays out.
“Pfizer has been hesitant to go into some of the countries because of the liability problems, they don’t have a liability shield,” Malpass stated on Friday.
Imagine the audacity it takes for a company who is ostensibly helping to stop a pandemic to tell people they can’t have their “life-saving” medicine unless said company can harm them with impunity. There is no need to imagine, as this is the situation in which we currently find ourselves.
It is no secret that removing someone’s liability also removes their incentive to create safer products and actually encourages careless behavior. Vaccine manufacturers are no stranger to this process and since 1988, the U.S. taxpayers have shelled out over $4 billion to pay for the damages caused by vaccines — not the manufacturers.
After an uptick in lawsuits in the late 80’s, the vaccine manufacturers essentially held the government hostage and threatened to stop making vaccines unless the government took on responsibility for vaccine injury lawsuits — and NVICP did just that.
You can actually prove that you or your child were harmed from a vaccine yet the vaccine maker is completely shielded from liability. Even if you are awarded monetary compensation through the NVICP, the taxpayers are put on the line, not the vaccine makers. This removal of liability has created the incentive to turn out new vaccines with very little testing, as the companies don’t have to worry about financial hardships for injuring people, which in turn has shaped the situation that we find ourselves in today. In the last 2 decades, we’ve witnessed a near 300% increase in the number of CDC recommended vaccines.
Now, we have companies like Pfizer turning out a vaccine that was developed and approved in only eight months and they had absolutely zero incentive to devote resources to the in depth study of its safety. In fact, as we reported, the British Medical Journal published an incendiary report exposing faked data, blind trial failures, poorly trained vaccinators, and a slow follow-up on adverse reactions in the phase-three trial of Pfizer’s Covid jab.
Seems like a company who has no worry of liability, doesn’t it?
The NVICP doesn’t go far enough for Pfizer, however, and with the Emergency Use Authorization of its product last year, an entirely new form of immunity was rolled out. If you are injured by one of the COVID-19 jabs, you don’t get to use the NVICP because no COVID-19 vaccine is on their list of “covered vaccines.”
Instead, last year under Donald Trump, then Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar invoked the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP). The 2005 law empowers the HHS secretary to provide legal protection to companies making or distributing critical medical supplies, such as vaccines and treatments, unless there’s “willful misconduct” by the company. The protection lasts until 2024.
That means that for the next several years, these companies “cannot be sued for money damages in court” over injuries related to the administration or use of products to treat or protect against Covid.
“When the government said, ‘We want you to develop this four or five times faster than you normally do,’ most likely the manufacturers said to the government, ‘We want you, the government, to protect us from multimillion-dollar lawsuits,’” said Rogge Dunn, a Dallas labor and employment attorney.
And that’s exactly what the government did. So, in instances of harm from the COVID-19 vaccine, no one is held liable because it’s the FDA who approved the vaccine and you can’t sue them.
“You can’t sue the FDA for approving or disapproving a drug,” said Dorit Reiss, a professor at the University of California Hastings College of Law. “That’s part of its sovereign immunity.”
Within the PREP Act, government established the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), which provides benefits to eligible individuals who suffer serious injury from the uncovered vaccines. However, the coverages are weak. If you are injured so badly from the vaccine that you can’t even leave your home, the maximum amount of money you will get it $50,000 per year as long as you are injured.
Even if you literally drop dead after getting the shot, the program’s death payout is capped at $370,376.
“This government compensation program is very hard to use,” said Reiss. “The bar for compensation is very high.”
Indeed, it is extremely high. Of the 3,649 claims filed, the CICP has compensated only 29 claims — ever — and none of them for the COVID-19 jab.
Now, we find ourselves in a situation in which many within the government want to force Americans to take the shot that has not undergone long term testing, with absolutely no recourse if that vaccine hurts or kills you. These vaccine manufacturers are working in concert with government and banking bureaucracies to make sure they can force their products on you with zero liability, and we’re the “conspiracy theorists” for pointing this out. This is 2021.
Caitlin Johnstone asserts that “[t]he most significant political moment in the U.S. since 9/11 and its aftermath was when liberal institutions decided that Trump’s 2016 election wasn’t a failure of status quo politics but a failure of information control.” Since Trump’s election, information control contributes to why those critical of Democrats are called Trump sympathizers. Journalist Paul Street epitomizes this tendency, seeming to speak for many who equate any criticism of Democrats with support for Trump and his policies. To the extent that this attitude serves to obstruct political dialogue and struggle, it does not serve us well — especially in these dark times, when we must pull our forces together to overcome the challenges we face.
Street’s CounterPunch article, “Glenn Greenwald is Not Your Misunderstood Left Comrade,” obstructs political dialogue and struggle. He gives no substantive rebuttal to a Greenwald article that declares “grotesque” the sight of “masked servants and unmasked elite at the New York Met Gala.” In a classic ad hominem attack, since Street couldn’t summon up an intelligent response, he just hurled insults. Sadly, this is what currently passes for political debate.
Compasses, nautical and political, are known to stop working in the vicinity of a strong electro-magnet. What has happened to our political compass? Street declares, “Glenn Greenwald is not a man of ‘the Left’ (or whatever’s left of ‘the Left’).” What does “Left” mean, post-Trump? The once-reliable compass seems now to be spinning wildly, as the political magnetic field does a headstand.
Street asserts that “Greenwald broke on through to the wrong side during the Trump years, so clouded by his understandable contempt for liberal and Democratic hypocrisy, corporatism, and imperialism as to become a willing accomplice of the white nationalist right.” Greenwald’s tireless and meticulous debunking of Russiagate has cast him as a Trump sympathizer to people like Street. Remarkably, many on “the Left,” still believe Russia did it, though the recent indictment of Hilary Clinton’s lawyer and arrest of the principal source of the bogus Steele dossier should put any such notion to rest.
Street snidely discounts Greenwald’s stated reason for leaving The Intercept — that “The Intercept’s editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the candidate vehemently supported by all New York-based [Intercept] editors involved in this effort at suppression.” Instead he claims that Greenwald, having submitted “a piece that tried to advance Trump campaign propaganda against Joe Biden on the eve of the 2020 presidential election,” regarded himself as “too good to be edited.” He lambasts Greenwald for being, as he put it, “all over the Hunter Biden-New York Post-deep state laptop story, even after CNN published an article titled “New Proof Emerges of the Biden Family Emails: a Definitive Account of the CIA/Media/BigTech Fraud.” Yet, even CNN recognized the bombshell.
There was no way to avoid suspicions about the FBI’s crucial role in a plot like this absent extreme ignorance about the bureau’s behavior over the last two decades, or an intentional desire to sow fear about right-wing extremists attacking Democratic Party officials one month before the 2020 presidential election.
Greenwald was one of the few who smelled a rat in the Michigan kidnapping story and, after serious investigative journalism, he found the rat.
In sum, the FBI devised this plot, was the primary organizer of it, funded it, purposely directed their targets to pose for incriminating pictures that they then released to the press, and then heaped praise on themselves for stopping what they themselves had created. The Wall Street Journal’s headline declares “In Michigan Plot to Kidnap Governor, Informants Were Key,” yet Jan 6 is declared an attempted coup.
In spite of such headlines from the Wall Street Journal, Street says Greenwald “downplays the seriousness of the fascist-putschist Capitol Riot of January 6, 2021.” This doesn’t sound like downplaying to me: “Of course the FBI was infiltrating the groups they claim were behind these attacks,” Greenwald reported, concluding, “yet the suggestion that FBI informants may have played some role in the planning of the January 6 riot was instantly depicted as something akin to, say, 9/11 truth theories or questions about the CIA’s role in JFK’s assassination.”
Street claims Greenwald has a “curious alignment with the white-nationalist neofascist Donald Trump and the January 6 marauders in their purported struggle with ‘the deep state.’” Marauders or the FBI? Does Street not believe that a “Deep State” exists? Greenwald’s article “Questions About the FBI’s Role in 1/6 Are Mocked Because the FBI Shapes Liberal Corporate Media” is subtitled “The FBI has been manufacturing and directing terror plots and criminal rings for decades. But now, reverence for security state agencies reigns.”
In a widely praised TED Talk, Trevor Aaronson states: “There’s an organization responsible for more terrorism plots in the United States than al-Qaeda, al-Shabaab and ISIS combined: The FBI.” So why are Street, the World Socialist Website, Counterpunch, and many others well-versed in COINTELPRO tactics, now swallowing FBI words whole and calling people Trump fascists for raising the issue of possible FBI involvement in the January 6 riot?
Street claims that Greenwald “defends Trump and other Amerikaner neofascists against the ‘censorship’ of their supposed free speech right to spew sexist, nativist, and white power hatred on Twitter and Facebook.” An article I wrote about the new reality police revealed that Media Alliance, a San Francisco organization founded in 1976 to be mainstream media watchdogs, circulated a petition after Jan. 6 that says: “Facebook should create a circuit breaker to help prevent dangerous disinformation and incitements to violence from ever reaching a mass audience…”
That good minds sincerely believe Silicon Valley executives should be the gods of truth in today’s world makes Orwell look cheerily optimistic. Yet shockingly, many people agree with the unprecedented censorship of a former president. Nixon, even after his impeachment and resignation, was never gagged as Trump is. As a former constitutional lawyer, Greenwald addressed concerns of Silicon Valley censorship in his article “Congress Escalates Pressure on Tech Giants to Censor More, Threatening the First Amendment.” Greenwald believes House Democrats are getting closer to the constitutional line, if they have not already crossed it.
Visceral hatred and rational discourse
Greenwald recently wrote several pieces on COVID as well, one announcing that he was eagerly vaccinated. However, his questions about the cost-benefit analysis missing from the COVID debate and his support of the position taken by NBA star Jonathan Isaac have Street condemning him for “failing to mention the horrific, anti-science, COVID-fueling and pandemo-fascist anti-masking and anti-vax practices, policies, and politics of the Amerikaner Party of Trump (the Republicans).”
An article titled “Forced Vaccination Was Always the End Game” — from the non-profit National Vaccine Information Center, which advocates for informed consent protections in medical policies and public health laws — reports that breakthrough COVID infections, hospitalizations, and deaths in fully vaccinated people are on the rise; individuals who have recovered from the infection have stronger natural immunity than those who have been vaccinated; and officials at the World Health Organization now say that the SARS-COV-2 virus is mutating like influenza and is likely to become prevalent in every county, no matter how high the vaccination rate. Yet, in spite of such growing perspective, Greenwald’s piece supporting the NBA’s Isaac is subtitled, “It is virtually a religious belief in the dominant liberal culture that people who do not want the COVID vaccine are stupid, ignorant, immoral and dangerous.”
In a separate article, titled “The ACLU, Prior to COVID, Denounced Mandates and Coercive Measures to Fight Pandemics,” Greenwald writes that the “ACLU prior to its Trump-era transformation” had one primary purpose: to denounce as dangerous and unnecessary attempts by the state to mandate, coerce, and control in the name of protecting the public from pandemics. The ACLU report cites important lessons from American history:
…vivid reminders that grafting the values of law enforcement and national security onto public health is both ineffective and dangerous. Too often, fears aroused by disease and epidemics have justified abuses of state power. Highly discriminatory and forcible vaccination and quarantine measures adopted in response to outbreaks of the plague and smallpox over the past century have consistently accelerated, rather than slowed, the spread of disease, while fomenting public distrust and, in some cases, riots.
Greenwald legitimately questioned the ACLU’s about-face from the pre-Trump era to its current position, pointing out how the ACLU tweeted that “[f]ar from compromising them, vaccine mandates actually further civil liberties.” Yet Street lauds the ACLU’s current position.
Many ask, as one article puts it, “Why Does Glenn Greenwald Keep Appearing on Tucker Carlson’s Show?” The question I keep asking, but get no answer to, is why Greenwald, Tulsi Gabbard, Aaron Maté, Matt Taibbi, Max Blumenthal, and Jimmy Dore can appear only on Fox. Why are they not invited onto “liberal” MSNBC or CNN, let alone Democracy Now? The apparent answer is that the dominant, ubiquitous paradigm, which cannot be challenged, is “don’t go after the Democrats.”
Much like Julian Assange, Greenwald began to be condemned by liberals only post-Trump. The liberal visceral hatred of Donald Trump has trumped rational discourse. If there were true rational discourse, Julian Assange would not be suffering in Belmarsh Prison as a consequence of his cardinal sin — publishing emails harmful to Democrats.
Facts and the distorting ideological lens
Following the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict, Greenwald again went out on a limb in what a revolutionary comrade called a “rant,” but Greenwald’s message was essentially the same as that conveyed by Caitlin Johnstone:
If your opinion about a legal case would be different if the political ideologies of those involved were reversed and all other facts and evidence remained the same, then it’s probably best not to pretend your position on the case has anything to do with facts or evidence.
Yet Greenwald, once again, has found himself in the crosshairs of “progressives.”
I agree with Street that he and Greenwald are not “on the same side.” If Street, and countless others like him, engaged in true political debate and struggle rather than calling people “facetious,” “stupid,” and “snotty,” we might be closer to the revolution that Street claims to hunger for.
Maribel Duarte is not an anti-vaxxer, in fact, she is fully vaccinated as well as the rest of her family. However, her 13-year-old son suffers from allergy and lung conditions so she was holding off on getting him vaccinated due to these problems.
“Regarding my son’s health, I am against it,” she said.
Unfortunately, being against it is no longer an option, however, as the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) took it upon themselves to vaccinate her son for her — without her consent.
Duarte told NBC 4 News her 13-year-old son came home with a vaccine card after saying yes to being vaccinated in exchange for pizza at the Barack Obama Global Prep Academy school in South LA.
The LAUSD has also taken it upon themselves to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for all children over the age of 12. They must receive the jab before January 10, 2022 or children will be forced into virtual learning and blocked from entering campus.
The statement on the LAUSD website read, “Attention families of students aged 12 or older—this is your reminder to get your child vaccinated.
“Your first dose must be uploaded into Daily Pass no later than December 19, 2021. Both doses must be uploaded before January 10, 2022!”
Apparently, the district has since began a campaign to vaccinate students at school and is rewarding them with pizza. What’s more, according to Duarte, the unknown woman who vaccinated her son told her son to keep it a secret, so she wouldn’t get in trouble.
“The lady that gave him the shot and signed the paper told my son, ‘Please don’t say anything. I don’t want to get in trouble,’” Duarte said.
Several parents have since filed a lawsuit against the LAUSD for this very reason. NBC4 spoke to an attorney who is following these cases, Jennifer Kennedy, who explained that school districts do not have the authority to mandate medical procedures. But they are doing it anyway.
“These grotesque contests and displays of treatment and candy and gifts and favors, raffles and cash prizes inducing the kids to the vaccination…. Here is the problem, kids in California cannot consent to vaccination.”
She added, “The LAUSD does not have the power to add a vaccine to the California school schedule,” she said. “You couldn’t do it if you were a po-dunk school district and you can’t do it if you’re LAUSD, the second largest district in the nation. You don’t have that legal authority.”
Sadly, Kennedy explained that these mandates in schools have created a similar environment that is taking place in the adult world where children are shaming other kids for not getting the jab, alienating them, segregating them, and discriminating against them.
“Even the existence of the mandates in the schools has created these environments of pressure and bullying, segregation and discrimination and accidental vaccination of kids without parental consent,” Kennedy said.
According to other reports, the vaccine mandate has also caused a massive drop in enrollment. The LAUSD is the second-largest district in the United States and after it mandated the jab, they watched enrollment drop by more than 27,000 – or 6% – at the start of the school year.
According to NBC4, the school is refusing to elaborate on the program, only noting that they actually have a “safe schools to safe steps incentive program” which offers children prizes like pizza for taking the jab.
“It hurt to know he got a shot without my permission, without knowing and without signing any papers for him to get the shot,” Duarte said. Indeed. Many people reading this right now would likely not be as polite as Duarte is in the video below if this same thing happened to their child.
Sadly, it is happening in other states as well. As TFTP reported last month, a family in Louisiana filed a lawsuit against Ochsner medical group after they went to their son’s school and vaccinated him without their consent.
When the government assumes control over your child’s health, and does so without your consent, it is time remove those responsible from their positions of authority as they no longer represent a free society.
Canada has become the latest country to recommend that young people – in this case boys and men aged 12 through 29 – should opt for the Pfizer Covid-19 booster shot over Moderna’s Spikevax due to a higher risk of myocarditis.
On Page 7 of Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization’s revised guidelines, the new guidance calls for the Pfizer-BioNTech offering due to “Lower reported cases of myocarditis/pericarditis … compared to Moderna Spikevax.“
Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam explained the decision in a Friday tweet, noting that “The latest data suggests the rare risk of these events following vaccination with mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (most often seen in males 12-29 yrs) may be lower with Pfizer-BioNTech Comirnaty (30 mcg) compared to Moderna Spikevax (100 mcg) vaccine,” while a “longer interval between 1st & 2nd dose of a primary series results in stronger immune response/higher vaccine effectiveness + may be associated with lower risk of myocarditis &/or pericarditis in teens & young adults.”
The agency still recommends both vaccination and boosters.
Canada joins Germany, France, Finland, Denmark and Sweden in warning young adults to avoid the Moderna jab following evidence of ‘rare but harmful’ side effects. The decision follows recently released data showing that the risk of heart inflammation from Pfizer’s jab “appears to be around five times lesser…compared to Modera’s spikevax jab”, per an opinion published by the HAS.
Here’s a summary of the German PEI data via Reuters:
The German PEI data showed a “report rate” for heart inflammations of 11.71 per 100,000 shots with the Moderna vaccine for men in the 18-29 age group, compared with 4.68 for the Biontech/Pfizer shot. For women, the rate was 2.95 with Moderna and 0.97 with Biontech/Pfizer.
In the 12-17 age group, the rate was 11.41 for males with the Moderna shot compared with 4.81 for Biontech/Pfizer. There was no data provided for females in the lower age group.
In November, Europe’s drug regulator confirmed that it’s investigating Moderna’s mRNA vaccine following six cases of capillary leak syndrome.
The Biden administration suffered yet another blow on Tuesday after a federal judge in Georgia blocked a nationwide vaccine mandate requiring employees of federal contractors to be vaccinated.
The mandate, set to take effect Jan. 4, would apply to approximately 25% of the US workforce and would affect companies that do business with the federal government – including Google, General Motors, Microsoft and several airlines.
Tuesday’s preliminary injunction follows a Kentucky federal judge’s preliminary injunction granted last week in a lawsuit involving Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, according to Bloomberg Law.
The mandate for businesses providing services for the federal government is part of a suite of Biden administration actions designed to increase vaccination rates. That includes an emergency regulation from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration that covers private-sector companies with 100 employees or more, a shot requirement for health-care companies paid by Medicare and Medicare, and one for federal workers.
Numerous challenges to those mandates are pending in appellate courts, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has temporarily halted enforcement of the OSHA regulation. The Sixth Circuit is poised to consider the consolidated challenges to the OSHA rule.
Scientists appear stymied by the low number of infections and deaths in sub-Saharan Africa where the vaccination rate is less than 6%
Africa has 17.46% of the world’s population and 3% of the COVID-19 global death toll while countries with better health care have higher death rates, including the Americas with 46% and Europe with 29%
Nigeria, with the highest population, has had 3,000 deaths in 200 million people, which is what is recorded in the U.S. every two or three days. Yet, Nigeria has announced an all-out vaccination program to “prepare for the next wave”
Factors that may have influenced the low infection and death rate are outdoor living that raises vitamin D levels, a younger population and access to medications and herbs used for other local conditions, but which are also known to reduce the severity of COVID
Whether or not lockdowns, shutdowns and other restrictive measures can work to lower the number of COVID-19 infections and deaths has been a topic of great debate since early 2020. As health experts look at global statistics, they have been stymied by the low rate of infection and death across the sub-Saharan African continent,1 compared to industrialized nations that used various lockdown procedures to contain the spread.
Across the world, countries have taken different approaches to address the spread of SARS-CoV-2. In one short documentary released by CAN films, they compare the COVID-19 outcomes in Scotland and Sweden.2 By March 2020,3 Scotland had implemented strict lockdowns and closed schools and other social venues. People were threatened with police fines if they went outside other than to exercise once a day, go to work or buy food.4
On the other hand, Sweden handled the pandemic differently than most of the globe and was initially vilified for looser restrictions and a lack of severe lockdown measures.5 In October 2020, TIME called the response a “disaster,”6 but data have shown that the death rate in Sweden was in line with other years.7 In other words, excess deaths that may have been attributed to COVID-19 were minimal.
Information compiled by CAN films showed the response in Sweden, which has nearly double the population of Scotland, had significantly less impact on the economy and health of their population, as well as nearly half the percentage of excess deaths as did Scotland.8 Scotland had three lockdowns, 64 school closures and a 54% increase in weight gain, while Sweden had no lockdowns, no school closures and zero weight gain.
Sub-Saharan African Continent Has Avoided COVID-19
Over the Thanksgiving 2021 break, media outlets broke the news of a new COVID-19 variant, dubbed Omicron, that was identified in South Africa.9 This variant is different in that doctors are reporting “unusual,” but mild symptoms, with fatigue being the most common complaint. In response, the rest of the world immediately instituted travel bans to and from South Africa.
Interestingly, the steps taken in Africa throughout the pandemic have varied depending on the country, yet the infection and death rate were relatively stable and low across the continent.10 Over the last year there have been reports of small areas in the world where the number of infections, deaths or case fatality rates have been significantly lower than the rest of the world.
For example,11 India’s Uttar Pradesh State reported a recovery rate of 98.6% and no further infections. On the other hand, the entire continent of Africa appears to have sidestepped the massive number of infections and deaths predicted for these poorly funded countries with overcrowded cities.
Early estimations were that millions would die when the pandemic swept across Africa. However, that scenario has not materialized. According to AP News,12 less than 6% of the continent is vaccinated and for months, the World Health Organization has called Africa “one of the least affected regions in the world.”13
In a busy crowded market outside Harare, AP News spoke with Nyasha Ndou, who carries a mask in his pocket. Hundreds of other people, mostly unmasked, were in the marketplace. Ndou explained the mask in his pocket:14
“COVID-19 is gone, when did you last hear of anyone who has died of COVID-19? The mask is to protect my pocket. The police demand bribes so I lose money if I don’t move around with a mask.”
According to data from WorldoMeter, the population of Africa15 makes up 17.46% of the world’s population16 Yet, AP News reports that the WHO data reveal deaths in Africa are 3% of the global total, while deaths in countries with better health care are much higher, such as 46% in the Americas and 29% in Europe.17
Nigeria has the highest population in Africa and the government has recorded just 3,000 deaths in the 200 million people who live in the country. In the U.S., AP News reports there are that many deaths every two or three days.18
Some Credit Early Lockdowns With Low Number of Infections
Across the world, countries and communities went into lockdown to supposedly help “flatten the curve” and slow the spread of the virus. Lesotho, the southernmost landlocked country in the world and surrounded by South Africa, locked down their country and their borders before a single person got sick.19
In March 2020, the country declared an emergency, closed the schools and went into a three-week lockdown. In early May, the lockdown was lifted, and the country recorded its first confirmed cases. The BBC reported in October 2020 that in a country of 2 million people they recorded 40 deaths in five months and approximately 1,700 cases.20
That number rose to 4,137 cases by January 2021 as citizens from South Africa were crossing the border during the holiday season.21 In addition to border crossings, the government had been releasing people early from quarantine over cost concerns.
However, experts believe thousands of people had crossed the border illegally because they were unable to afford to pay for their COVID-19 test.22 In response to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in January, the prime minister imposed a curfew on social venues such as bars and nightclubs at 8 pm.
While the quick action that some countries took to lock down their population may have slowed the spread of the virus in the early days, the SARS-CoV-2 is endemic. This means that it is in the environment and no amount of lockdown will eliminate the virus.
It also means that once lockdowns are opened again, the virus will continue to spread, just like flu and cold viruses. Countries like Lesotho that locked down early have experienced infections after the lockdown was lifted. The one advantage to flattening the curve and reducing the number of infections early in the pandemic was that doctors could have used the time to improve treatment protocols.
Dr. Vladimir Zelenko23 and the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance24 are two examples of physicians and physician groups that developed treatment protocols during 2020 that have proven to be successful25,26,27,28 and reduce the number of individuals with severe disease or long-haul symptoms.
Factors That May Influence the Infection Rate
There are several factors that may influence the infection rates in Africa. In the video above, Dr. John Campbell points to the dramatic reduction in COVID-19 cases in Japan that began in August, just 12 days after doctors were allowed to legally prescribe ivermectin to their patients.29
Using Google Translate,30 Campbell learned Dr. Haruo Ozaki, chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association, had taken notice of the low number of infections and deaths in Africa where many use ivermectin prophylactically31 and as the core strategy to treat onchocerciasis,32 a parasitic disease also known as river blindness. More than 99% of people infected live in 31 African countries.
Other medications that are commonly available in Africa have also demonstrated effectiveness against COVID-19. For example, hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine have long been used in the treatment and prevention of malaria.33 Zelenko has published successful results using hydroxychloroquine against COVID-19.
Malaria is one of the leading causes of death in many developing nations in Africa. The illness is triggered by a parasite carried by an infected female mosquito34 and characterized by flu-like symptoms. Delays in treatment increase the severity of the illness and the risk of death. According to the WHO35 there were 219 million cases of malaria diagnosed in 2017 and 92% of those were in the African region.
Finally, Artemisia annua, also known as sweet wormwood, is an herb used in combination therapies to treat malaria.36 It was used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years to treat fever. Today artemisinin, a metabolite of Artemisia, is the current therapeutic option for malaria. The plant has also been studied since the 2003 SARS outbreak for the treatment of coronaviruses, with good results.37,38
As the BBC39 points out, the average age in most African countries is much lower than in the rest of the world. Since many who have died are over the age of 80, and the median age in Africa is 19 years, infections are far less likely to result in death. Only 3% of the population is over age 65 as compared to 16.9% in North America40 and 19.2% in Europe.41
In addition, residential care facilities for the elderly are rare in most African countries.42 Weather may also play a part in who gets COVID: Early in the pandemic, researchers from the University of Maryland43,44 discovered there was a correlation between the spread of COVID-19 and temperature, humidity and latitude. They found the virus appears to spread better when humidity and temperatures drop.
In addition, temperate weather and sunny skies such as those you see in Africa increase the likelihood that a population will have optimal levels of vitamin D. Researchers have discovered that maintaining optimal levels of vitamin D reduces the potential for infection and lowers the risk of severe disease.45,46,47
How Does Vaccination in Sub-Saharan Africa Make Sense?
The low numbers of COVID-19 in the sub-Saharan African population continue despite a less than 6% vaccination rate. Meanwhile. Western nations’ vaccination rates are soaring, yet they struggle with rising infection and death rates. With statistics like this, why are Nigerian officials seemingly overlooking the country’s low numbers and health status by announcing they would be stepping up their immunization schedule, with hopes to give the shot to half the population before February.48
Put simply, their target is “herd immunity” in a population that is not suffering. Oyewale Tomori, is a virologist from Nigeria who sits on several WHO advisory groups. He believes the vaccination level does not need to be as high as it is in the West. Salim.
But Abdool Karim, an epidemiologist in South Africa who has advised the government in the past on COVID-19, disagrees. He is calling for an all-out vaccination program to “prepare for the next wave,”49 which negates what has happened in Africa in the last 20 months. He says, “Looking at what’s happening in Europe, the likelihood of more cases spilling over here is very high.”
So, as African countries which have had lower rates of infection and deaths since the start of the pandemic vaccinate more and more of their population, one can’t help but wonder: Once vaccination programs are underway, will the death rates climb as they have in other areas of the world where vaccination levels are high?50,51,52
And if they do, how will the “health experts” explain the sudden rising number of infections and deaths on a continent that has thus far avoided pandemic levels of COVID-19?
When a faultline breaks open on earth’s surface it reveals the presence of an underlying structural discontinuity that was previously unsuspected by those casually passing by. Those who come across it suddenly realize that things are not what they seem and that powerful forces are at work under their feet which can at any point erupt in scenes of great upheaval.
Sometime even the most adroit deceivers and manipulators commit an act that is so utterly illogical and patently senseless that it breaks open a deep fissure in their narrative which reveals the immensity and depth of their fraud to everyone with eyes to see.
The vaccinators committed one such act when they insisted that children as young as five years old be made to take their injections.
It is widely known that healthy children are at virtually zero risk of severe outcomes from Corona.
The CDC itself has told us that in the United States only 66 children under the age of 12 have died of Covid in the past twelve months. The vast majority — if not all — of those unfortunate children suffered from serious life-threatening conditions. If we generously assume that 10 of those children were healthy, then the probability of a healthy child being struck by lightning is one thousand percent greater than that of dying of Covid 19. (For reference, there were 120 people struck by lightning in 2019 in the United States.)
While the chances of young children dying of Covid are infinitesimally small, the danger of vaccine injury and death are real.
We know by now that the Covid vaccines are by far the most deadly and dangerous vaccines ever unleashed upon mankind. To wit, they are eight hundred times more deadly than the notorious smallpox vaccine which had previously claimed that infamous distinction.
To see just how deadly the Covid vaccines are consider the chart below. This chart presents data from the VAERS database. VAERS, as you may know, stands for Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, which is a government- run facility that collects information about vaccine side effects.
The chart depicts the number of yearly death reports following vaccination for the last thirty years. As you can see, the numbers held relatively steady from 1990 until 2020, and it was generally under 500 cases per year. This changed dramatically toward the end of 2020 when the Covid vaccines were introduced. At that point we see a rapid explosion of death reports. So exponential is the increase that the graph line shoots up almost vertically.
It is both astonishing and revealing that in the last 11 months there were more reports of vaccine deaths than in the previous 29 years combined.
This should raise red flags all over, because it is a good indication that there is likely something seriously wrong with the Covid vaccines, and that these hastily devised and inadequately tested pharmaceuticals are causing death on an unprecedented scale.
The push to inject these concoctions into children who are for all practical purposes at no risk from the disease itself is thus preposterous on its face.
Myocarditis and pericarditis have been of special concern in young people. The misguided effort is already bearing its gruesome fruit as young children die of heart attacks and strokes in numbers never seen before.
Ernest Ramirez’s healthy 16-year-old son died of a heart attack 5 days after receiving Pfizer vaccine (see Mr. Ramirez’s Twitter feed for updates).
According to a cost-benefit analysis conducted by Toby Rogers, PhD in the 5 to 11 age range, 117 healthy kids will have to die of vaccine-related side effects in order to save one child from perishing of Covid 19. Lest you may be tempted to think that this is the prediction of some fringe conspiracy theorist, we recommend that you check out Dr. Rogers’ credentials. He has professionally specialized in precisely this kind of analysis for a number of years.
Neither will vaccinating children bring any benefits to the community at large.
We now know that the vaccines will not protect children from contracting infection and then passing it onto others. We have this on the authority of no lesser authority than the CDC Director Rochelle Walensky who confessed in her August 5 interview with CNN that the vaccines can no longer “prevent transmission.”
Forget any notions of juicy carrots; the stick approach of savage punishment is in vogue with the Greek government in pushing vaccination rates. It is far from the only one. Across a number of countries in Europe, governments wishing to drive up levels of COVID-19 vaccination have decided to abandon suasion and the generous supply of medical information in favour of penalties and punishments.
In Austria, Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg was very much a standard bearer for that cause, citing stubbornness on the part of the citizenry of his country. (Only 69% of those eligible have received at least one dose, a rate significantly behind that of other western European states.) “We have enough vaccines,” he told CNN prior to announcing his resignation. “Science gave us the possibility, the exit ticket out of this vicious circle of virus waves and lockdown discussions. And simply not enough people are using this possibility and taking this exit ticket”.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is now openly entertaining the idea, one sparked by the emergence of the Omicron COVID variant. “We have the vaccines,” she told reporters in Brussels this month, “the life-saving vaccines, but they are not being used adequately everywhere. And this costs.” It was time to “encourage and potentially think about mandatory vaccination within the European Union”.
Such ideas had already been circulating in legal and political debates for some time. The European Court of Human Rights decision of Vavřička and Others v. The Czech Republic, handed down in April this year, is said to have opened the door. That particular case involved parents in the Czech Republic who had refused to have their children vaccinated for a range of reasons, including religious ones. They were punished by fines, and their children excluded from kindergarten.
The majority found that the mandatory childhood vaccination policy was compatible with Article 8 (the right to respect and family life) of the European Convention on Human Rights. Any lawfulness of interference with the physical integrity of a person, the court accepted, would have to have some basis in the domestic law of the country.
The court also found that a policy object of protecting the health of members of society in general, and declining voluntary vaccination rates which would jeopardise the goal of herd immunity, could justify such rules.
Even the dissenting finding of Judge Wojtyczek acknowledged that the Convention did “not exclude the introduction of an obligation to vaccinate in respect of certain diseases, coupled with exceptions based upon conscientious objection.”
The latest experiment along these lines is taking place in Athens, with the Mitsotakis government suggesting that those over 60 will be fined €100 if they refuse vaccination past mid-January. (The number of those unvaccinated in that group hovers at around 520,000.) In doing so, Greece makes itself something of a pioneer in targeting a specific age group. Currently, it has lawsmandating COVID-19 vaccinations for staff working in health care facilities and those involving care of the elderly and disabled
Rather than calling it what it is – a punitive measure that risks being disproportionate – the government prefers another angle. “It’s not a punishment,” claims the Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis. “I would say it is a health fee.” For the Greek PM, it’s all numbers, age and a few false comparisons. “Experts estimate that the importance of the vaccine in a 70-year-old person is equivalent to 34 vaccinations of younger ones in terms of public health.”
With such sophistry, it is little wonder he is facing trouble. Yanis Varoufakis, former Greek finance minister and current sitting member, is one promising to make things difficult. As a critic of the punitive policy, he blames himself for having mockingly suggested that odious idea to the Prime Minister. “I had the Prime Minister in front of me in Parliament (two months ago) and … I said, ‘Imagine that you were to introduce a $200 fine every month for the unvaccinated… what effect is this going to have?”
Taking the cudgel and baton to the sceptics and the obstinate in the population, Varoufakis observes, is tantamount to feeding their cause in the most divisive way imaginable. Some people are going receive the jab as a result of it, but the nation will be divided and opponents feel “that they are being martyred for being concerned.”
He makes a few important points on the policies of the Mitsotakis administration. The first is the absence of trust citizens have towards government, whose officials have done much to erode. The second is that citizens are generally suspicious what their government might do next – for instance, bribing them, tickling their pleasure tendencies and hoping that they will fall for a vaccination fix. In many countries, this measure has been used in several instances: vouchers, drinks, meals, and straight cash bribery.
An article recently published in Nature emphasises the salient nature of the first point. “In countries with a high level of consensus regarding the trustworthiness of science and scientists, the positive correlation between trust in science and vaccine confidence is stronger than it is in comparable where the level of social consensus is weaker.”
Previous studies on the nature of Greece’s unwillingness to receive vaccinations show that the government has much work to do. A study published in January this year in Global Health and Policy found that, of a sample of 1004 respondents, a mere 57.7% expressed any desire to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The authors found the pressing “need for public health officials to take immediate awareness raising measures.”
Any vaccination policy that calls for exclusions and excommunications is one that can only admit to failure. Authoritarianism, be it in terms of health or any field of government endeavour, comes a distant second to the power of persuasion and reassurance. And history has thrown up some dark precedents, which can provide rich fodder for opponents, when countries decided to violate the physical autonomy of humans for the sake of the broader public good. Sensible if traditional on this score, Varoufakis makes a sound recommendation: present the facts.
Grocery stores in New Brunswick, Canada have been given the power to ban unvaccinated people from entering, meaning the unjabbed could be prevented from conducting the essential activity of buying food.
The province’s health minister Dorothy Shephard said businesses will be given the option to either enforce physical distancing or check for proof-of-vaccination.
Those businesses include “malls and grocery stores.”
Shephard said the measure, part of the region’s three-level action plan to curb the spread of COVID-19 during the winter, is necessary to reverse a “very concerning” rise in cases.
“According to a guide by Public Safety Canada, food is among the ten critical infrastructure sectors, and its delivery and preparation is considered an Essential Service and Function,” writes Ken Macon.
“Provinces have been allowed to implement their own restrictions, but grocery stores have remained open to all, regardless of vaccination status.”
The measure appears to be a fundamental violation of human rights and now must surely be challenged in the courts.
This is yet another example of how, while authorities claim the vaccine isn’t mandatory, every basic existence and lifestyle function are being removed for those who don’t take the shot.
The federal government has already banned unvaxxed Canadians from using domestic or international air and rail travel.
If this is allowed to pass, expect the next stage to be fitting unvaccinated people with electronic ankle bracelets to ensure they don’t leave their homes, or failing that just throwing them in prison.
There really is no depth to which this abyss cannot sink.
All of the so-called COVID-19 “vaccines” (genetic-modification agents) were pulled off the market because of the millions of deaths and horrific injuries they were directly causing. The evidence was so overwhelming, even the do-nothing politicians and corrupt health agencies couldn’t ignore it any more.
With the “vaccines” gone, the vaccine mandates and vaccine “passports” went out the window too. So did the useless lockdowns, the ridiculous disease-causing masks, and the social distancing, all of which had zero basis in scientific fact.
All people who lost their jobs because they had refused the clot-shots were offered their jobs back, with full back-pay and an official apology from their employers. Many of these employers knew how destructive the “vaccines” were all along. Many others had been duped by the complicit Mainstream Media’s propaganda campaign on behalf of Big Pharma. But that did not spare any of the employers from tens of thousands of lawsuits filed by those whose lives and livelihoods they had destroyed.
The companies that manufactured the extremely dangerous genetic “vaccines”—Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, and others—were hit with trillions of dollars in lawsuits because it was abundantly proven that they knew all about the potential “side effects” of the genetic cocktails well in advance and concealed this information from the public, with the collusion of governments and the media.
All of these “vaccine” companies went bankrupt and were on the verge of extinction. Cheap, highly effective remedies to treat COVID-19 and coronavirus illness were being widely prescribed at U.S. hospitals and clinics, with full health-insurance coverage. These medicines have been used in many countries around the world to effectively prevent and cure covid infection.
This development is what the profit-hungry vaccine companies feared most. It helped put them out of business.
The official U.S. death toll for COVID-19 quickly went down to zero, as it should have been all along.
People in every nation under the “New Normal” tyranny rose up and threw off their shackles. Hundreds of millions of very angry people found out how their governments and presstitute media had been lying to them about the virus, the “vaccines”, the fraudulent PCR test which gives up to 97% false-positives, the vastly inflated death counts, and the basically harmless new variants turned into “scariants” by the whore media. People scratched their heads and wondered how they could have ever fallen for the hoax, involving a respiratory virus less deadly than the seasonal flu.
ENRAGED, millions of people took to the streets, cornering the cowardly, paid-off politicians who had allowed the scam to continue for so long. Thousands of politicians resigned, including heads of state. Others went into hiding. Citizens’ arrests were legally made by Citizen Posses deputized by sheriffs or other authorities.
The Nuremberg 2.0 trial was underway. The criminals were in the dock—Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, Rochelle Walensky, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Joseph Biden, Klaus Schwab, Jacinda Ardern, Scott Morrison, Alexander Schallenberg, Justin Trudeau, censors Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey, and many others faced long prison sentences and possibly execution for their crimes against humanity.
The globalist puppet masters who pulled the strings for these front-men—longtime advocates of depopulation and One World Government—were also being identified, rounded up, and arrested.The trial was being broadcast on television every day, so that the world could see how it had been tricked and deceived by these criminals and mass murderers into obeying the diktats of a fake pandemic that destroyed the middle class, wiped out countless small businesses, drove millions into poverty, hunger, and suicide, and prevented locked-down individuals from getting exercise or badly-needed medical attention.
“The Real Anthony Fauci,” Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s book, was an international bestseller, selling more copies in a single year than any other book in history, despite getting no reviews from the corrupt New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Times of London, and other Big Pharma mouthpieces.
“The Real Bill Gates”—RFK Jr.’s sequel exposé, was selling briskly around the world. This well-documented blockbuster exposed the massive crimes of serial killer/psychopath Bill Gates, the vaccine-fanatic who foisted the Plandemic on the world in collusion with his cronies. Gates was busy writing a self-defensive memoir while in custody during the trial.
People who had been tricked or coerced into getting the wholly unnecessary kill-shots now realized the grave harm that had been done to them and the insanity of getting “boosters”. They formed support groups and investigated ways to strengthen their immune systems, to rid vaccine-induced toxins from their bodies, and to reduce the odds of adverse side effects down the road. Unfortunately, many of them died anyway from micro-clots, Antibody-Dependent Enhancement, and other effects of the killer “vaccines”.
Many of these vaccine victims—suffering from paralysis, nonstop convulsions, spinal damage, permanent vision loss, low blood platelet count, heart inflammation, multi-organ system failure, and other conditions—were allowed to tell their personal stories on television. Talk-show hosts on “The View” and elsewhere oozed sympathy toward the vaccine victims in an effort to regain their alienated and awakened fan-base, but without much success. People everywhere were awakened, not “woke”.
Hollywood and pop-music celebrities who had condemned the unvaccinated mostly went silent. Their ratings crashed through the floor as people boycotted their movies and albums, sending the entertainment/media/propaganda complex into a financial tailspin.
Donald Trump, who proudly boasted about the genetic “vaccines” he hazardously rolled out as President under Operation Warp Speed, finally came out against the kill-shots, blaming his advisers and Fauci for duping him. Trump did not seek re-election due to his declining popularity.

South Africans will find out this week whether President Cyril Ramaphosa will consign 60% of them to proxy house arrest by restricting public spaces to the Covid-19 “vaccinated”. It is a fraught decision; one that sets the terrifying powers of Big Pharma and the new class of warrior-scientists against African reality. It also risks the possibility of sparking one of the bitterest of vaccine wars.
Only 40% of the South African population has been jabbed against Covid — a slow take-up which is euphemistically described as “vaccine hesitancy”. It is anything but: it is enraged rejection.
There are a number of reasons why it is so hard to get South Africans to take the umjovu, the injection: appalling technical management of the outbreak, a prevailing scepticism towards science, wariness about the Government and a wide-spread apprehension by the poor and marginalised that this is at best another form of repression and at worst witchcraft. It is a dangerous brew in a country already in a state of great political, social and economic instability.
In common with the rest of the world, South African epidemiological estimates of fatalities at the outset of the coronavirus outbreak verged on the fantastical. Initial predictions were for between 87,000 and 350,000 fatalities in the first phase. There were 103. Two years later, with the virus in retreat, fatalities attributed to Covid (but by no means vouchsafed) are only now beginning to touch the lowest initial estimates.
Yet the South African Government imposed one of the longest and most severe lockdowns, supported by a baying national and social media. The decision has proved inappropriate in nature, premature in timing and catastrophic in impact. In a country where many depend on ad hoc daily or weekly subsistence wages, the sudden cessation of economic activity wreaked havoc amongst the poor and self-employed. A failing state was unable to deliver on its promise of subsidies, responsible policing or effective containment.
It took more than a year for the first subsidies to individuals or small businesses to start coming through. And even then they were erratic, corruption-prone, inadequate, and according to many attested reports, distributed on a racially biased basis. Nearly a quarter of small businesses have gone to the wall and unemployment has rocketed.
An entire section of the population was effectively criminalised: in the first four months of the outbreak, 230,000 citizens, 0.4% of the population, were charged with infringement of the Disaster Regulations for breaking the restrictions, 311 of them policemen. All the charges were later dropped: the criminal justice system simply could not cope.
For every reported infection to the end June last year, seven citizens were arrested for breach of regulations; for every 100 infections, one police officer was arrested; and for every 1,200 infections there was a High Court urgent application. Seven people had been killed in heavy-handed enforcement.
When two doctors working in a Government hospital were forcibly interned in one of the state’s make-shift rural isolation camps, the High Court ordered they be allowed to self-isolate at home: it accepted the doctors’ deposition that they stood more chance of dying from the conditions of incarceration than from the virus.
Small surprise, then, that the general population, particularly the poor, headed for the hills. Take-up of the crucial HIV-Aids retroviral dropped from 95% to 30%; malaria medication showed the same path. Attendances for tuberculosis screenings dropped by two-thirds, while consultations with GPs were down 60% and tens of thousands of urgent surgery procedures were postponed for the coronavirus patients who never arrived.
Emergency procurement of personal equipment, meanwhile, opened the door to the corruption lurking in every interstice of the State. The heir-presumptive to President Ramaphosa has resigned: a state investigatory agency accuses him of directing a R350 million (£16.6 million) Personal Protection Equipment account to friends. The Gauteng Health Department, industrial heartland of the nation, is embroiled in a R560 million (£26.5 million) fraud inquiry. The female whistle-blower was assassinated within days of the inquiry’s launch.
The begging question, whether President Ramaphosa, a decent man, is presiding over a ruling party in the throes of a Robert Kennedy versus The Mob has at least been definitively answered.
At the same time, a public service already perilously compromised by patronage, corruption, incompetence, and the dismissal of key white personnel for affirmative action reasons, went into a long recess. Two years later it has still not properly returned.
Enforcement of traffic licencing rules have also been in abeyance for 18 months as 500,000 drivers’ licences await clearance. Estates cannot be closed, forensic inquiries completed, crimes prosecuted (including culprits in the so-called State Capture project of former President Jacob Zuma) and property transferred. More than half a million school children have quite simply not returned to school.
As for the burden of this failure of service delivery, it has been carried disproportionately by the poor, mainly black but increasingly also by white citizens, judged by the street corner beggars. There is little doubt that the effect of the containment strategies advocated by South Africa’s warrior scientists facilitated the July Troubles this year, which claimed 357 lives in a scourge of looting, arson and violence and has directly accounted for the drastic decline in ruling party support in last month’s municipal elections.
South Africans have endured, if never condoned, the absurdities and atrocities of this misjudged, exploited and needless panic to date. The ebb and flow of the global debate about the course of the pandemic has been intensely watched here by the literate and online portion of the community.
They have followed, like many others in the world, the way the arrogant scientific certainties that locked up the world are dissolving in the face of measured science and empirical fact. They understand one cannot follow a “science” when the scientists are hopelessly at odds. They are aware of the abuse of both language and statistics, particularly the new phenomena of snatch-stats whereby mortality from other causes is snatched for Covid-19, or the natural path of an expiring virus is used to justify the efficacy of an antidote or Excess Deaths are annexed to justify a lost cause.
They note the irony whereby their government, correctly, tells the world not to be alarmed by the Omicron variant, while it simultaneously contemplates a grievous assault against the rights of its citizens to contain it, egged on by the usual howling suspects who demanded total lockdowns. Citizens have minutely followed recent reports of how Pfizer arm-twisted their desperate government into signing legal indemnities for its product: who ever heard of citizens being forced to be vaccinated when the supplier is absolved of any responsibility for the consequences?
Most South Africans are not conspiracy theorists but their history teaches them one certain thing: uncontained power always gets one screwed. And many feel screwed now by a confluence of forces (not a conspiracy) that — from Big Pharma, to Big Tech to authoritarian governments — seeks rent from this incomparable tragedy.
But another, far more important constituency of hesitaters and rejectionists exists. Those who take the time to talk to the black poor and marginalised are astonished by the extent to which, scarred by their lockdown experiences, they regard the current scare as yet another means to oppress them. Curfews, liquor and tobacco bans and the outlawing of political meetings under the guise of fighting Covid-19 support their case. And, for many, the umjovo is nothing less than ubuthakathi or witchcraft.
President Ramaphosa enters dangerous territory here. Take-up of vaccines is higher among the minorities for a variety of reasons and it is a section of the white minority who are the most vociferous supporters of vaccinate-at-all-costs. Banning access to public spaces will instantly translate, as it always does, into a political and racial rumpus. Pieces of paper that permit or restrict certain people’s movements have a terrible record in this country’s history: a bitter resonance for every black person.
Proven and restless forces in South Africa are today looking for chances to reignite the insurrection of July. These are people who do not protest by way of orderly marches, posters and pram-pushing. They seek only opportunity; the consequences brought by the human attempts to contain the pandemic is a revolution.
But revolutions always eventually consume their children. Time will certainly consume the reputations of the architects of this epochal tragedy: the scientists, pharmaceutical companies, politicians and media. And if Ramaphosa isn’t careful, it could also consume the fragile nation of South Africa.
A doctor in the UK who was banned from using social media by the General Medical Council for claiming “masks do nothing” has won his case in the High Court.
Dr. Samuel White was slapped with and 18 month ban by the GMC after he posted a video to Instagram and Twitter in June questioning the efficacy of face coverings.
In the video, White said why he could no longer tolerate working in his previous roles because of the “lies” around the NHS and the government’s response to the pandemic, which were “so vast” he could no longer “stomach” them.
White also committed the ultimate sin of remarking, “masks do nothing” to stop the spread of COVID, despite this being the consensus medical opinion at the start of the pandemic before it mysteriously switched almost overnight.
The doctor also expressed concerns about the safety of vaccines and the reliability of COVID tests.
White took his case against the GMC to the High Court on the basis of his freedom of expression “to engage in medical, scientific and political debate and discussion,” White’s barrister, Francis Hoar, told a hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice.
Hoar added that White’s opinions were “supported by large bodies of scientific and medical opinion” and had been “statements of fact and opinions about pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical interventions in response to the pandemic.”
GMC’s Alexis Hearnden claimed that White’s views were not only misinformation, but posed a “risk” to the public because they didn’t align with official pronouncements.
However, the court ruled in favor of White, asserting that the tribunal which banned him from speaking had violated the 1998 Human Rights Act.
The ruling concluded that the tribunal’s decision was “an error of law and a clear misdirection,” meaning the decision was “clearly wrong and cannot stand.”
Hospitals in Queensland, Australia, may deny potentially life-saving surgeries to patients who haven’t been vaccinated.
Queensland Health unveiled the new policy over the weekend, claiming the rule was necessary because patients requiring those types of surgeries typically have weakened immune systems.
The policy imposes a “minimum requirement of two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine prior to receiving a kidney, lung or heart transplant,” according to7News.com.au.
In a statement regarding the new policy, Queensland Health claimed the vaccines would help surgery patients who are already immunocompromised immediately following operations.
“A recipient is highly immunosuppressed post-transplant, which is why it’s incredibly important for the person to be vaccinated prior to transplant. Queensland Health prioritizes safety before, during and after a transplant,” the government health authority stated.
“That is why the Queensland Kidney Transplant Service has endorsed a minimum requirement of two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine prior to receiving a kidney, lung or heart transplant.”
“Prior to transplant and as per normal process, the recipient must ensure all of their vaccinations are up to date,” stated Queensland Health, adding, “The COVID-19 vaccination is no different.”
Unvaccinated people who require surgeries, meanwhile, will be hung out to dry until the policy comes up for review next February.
Despite the Australian government’s claims that the vaccines provide an immune boost, independent lab tests conducted by a US doctor showed how the Covid vaccine suppresses the body’s adaptive immune system, leaving vaccinated individuals more susceptible to illness.
The Vietnamese province of Thanh Hoa suspended a batch of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine after more than 120 teens were hospitalized after being vaccinated. According to news reports, three Vietnamese teens have died after getting the Pfizer vaccine.
The Vietnamese province of Thanh Hoa suspended a batch of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID vaccineafter more than 120 teens were hospitalized after being vaccinated.
According to the province’s Center for Disease Control (CDC), the teens were hospitalized for symptoms ranging from nausea and high fevers to breathing difficulties — with 17 children exhibiting severe reactions.
Vu Van Chinh, director of the Ha Trung District General Hospital, said side-effects following vaccination are normal but are more likely to happen in children than adults.
Luong Ngoc Truong, director of the CDC, said although the province stopped using the current vaccine batch, “We still have other batches, also Pfizer vaccines, so we will continue vaccinating the children.”
The suspended batch was put into storage and could be used later for other groups like adults, Truong added.
Last week, four workers in Thanh Hoa’s Kim Viet Shoe factory died — also due to “overreaction” — after receiving the Vero Cell COVID vaccine, authorized in May by the World Health Organization for emergency use.
Three Vietnamese children die after Pfizer vaccine
Vietnam on Nov. 30 rolled out its COVID vaccination program for children 15 to 17 years old with Pfizer’s vaccine. Since then, three children have died after receiving their first dose. The cause of death was “overreaction to the vaccine.”
One of the three deaths reported in Vietnam includes a 12-year-old boy in the southern province of Binh Phuoc who died one day after his first Pfizer shot.
The boy received his vaccine Monday afternoon and was sent home to rest. After dinner, he experienced dizziness, abdominal pain and diarrhea. He was taken to a local hospital and then transferred to two others, but died Tuesday morning.
The Binh Phuoc Department of Health set up an expert panel to determine the cause of the 12-year-old’s death.
A 16-year-old boy in the northern Bac Giang Province, and a ninth-grade girl in Hanoi, both died Sunday after receiving Pfizer’s COVID vaccine.
The Health Ministry said both deaths were caused by “overreaction to the vaccine,” not by a problem with the quality of the vaccine or the vaccination process.
“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”
Those words, uttered by two-time Nobel Prize-winning chemist and physicist Marie Curie, are as relevant today as they were in her era (1867–1934). With most of the planet under some form of medical martial law, we would do well to follow her advice: understand more and fear less about the pandemic. The way to do that is to establish the verifiable, scientific facts about the SARS-CoV-2 virus and separate those facts from the fiction being touted by a fear-mongering news media. Only then will we stop surrendering our inherent freedoms to COVID-19 propaganda.
Fiction #1: Wearing a face mask will protect you and others from the coronavirus.
Fact #1: Contrary to what many medical and government officials tell us, there is no evidence to support the claim that face masks—whether N95, surgical, or cloth—protect the wearer from any virus. These so-called “medical experts” usually reference a purportedly scientific publication to support their claim. However, when the studies they point to—namely, in The Lancet and from the Mayo Clinic—are put under closer scrutiny, they fail to pass one crucial test: they never used a Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT). Reputable scientists consider the RCT the Holy Grail when it comes to conducting a study on a large group of people, because it eliminates the possibility of any population bias in the testing.
When we look at trials that have used the RCT method to analyze the efficacy of face masks, we find starkly different results from those that have not.
For instance, an exhaustive dental study conducted in 2016 revealed that disposable surgical face masks are incapable of providing protection from respiratory pathogens.
Then there was the study conducted this past February by Long Y, Hu T, Liu, et al., titled “Effectiveness of N95 respirators versus surgical masks against influenza.” Itinvolved a total of six RCTs and 9,171 participants. The study concluded that “the current meta-analysis shows the use of N95 compared with surgical masks is not associated with a lower risk of laboratory-confirmed influenza. It suggests that N95 respirators should not be recommended for general public and nonhigh-risk medical staffs those are not in close contact with influenza patients or suspected patients.”
Even the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has done studies on face masks by correctly using RCTs. In one report, titled “Emerging Infectious Diseases, Vol.26, No.5” and published in May 2020, the CDC did ten Randomized Controlled Trials before concluding, “Disposable medical masks (also known as surgical masks) are loose-fitting devices that were designed to be worn by medical personnel to protect against accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the wearer against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids. There is limited evidence for their effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission either when worn by the infected person for source control or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure. Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.”
As for those people who wear a cloth mask in the belief that “it’s better than wearing nothing,” a RCT conducted in 2015 showed that cloth masks do not work at all. In actuality, a cloth mask puts the wearer at increased risk of respiratory illness and viral infections.
In light of the plethora of available science on face masks, it is heartening to see that some governments are making rational decisions based on that science. In the Netherlands, for example, officials are refusing to mandate mask-wearing in public.
In the end, the face mask should be viewed as a device used by authoritarians to control the masses and enforce compliance to lawless edicts. The mask lulls wearers into feeling protected from biological harm. Meanwhile, the real harm being done to them is psychological and spiritual. By submitting to mandatory face-covering orders based on flawed science and imposed by either unelected-but-politicized medical officials and technocrats or elected-but-compromised politicians who hold positions in all levels of government—these mask wearers don’t realize that they’re handing over their precious liberties, their individuality, and even, one might say, their very souls to soulless tyrants.
Fiction #2: Scientists have isolated and purified the SARS-CoV-2 RNA virus.
Fact #2: To date, not a single team of scientists has isolated and purified the SARS-CoV-2 RNA virus. Some researchers claim to have done so. But when their findings are scrutinized, they fall short. Just as Randomized Controlled Trials are required to do accurate studies of the efficacy and safety of medical devices like face masks or products such as prescription drugs, so, too, is there a major benchmark that must be satisfied if one is to prove that he has indeed correctly identified and isolated a virus. That benchmark has been, since 1890, a set of principals known as the Koch postulates, named after famed German physician and bacteriologist Robert Koch. All researchers must apply his four postulates if they are to prove or disprove a cause-and-effect relationship between a pathogen and a particular clinical disease.
For example, in February 2020, Chinese and Dutch researchers published studies purporting to show that they had isolated the SARS-CoV-2 virus by satisfying all of the Koch postulates. Four months later, however, freelance writer Armory Devereux and molecular biologist and researcher Rosemary Frei revealed the truth about those studies in an Off-Guardian article. Their heavily investigated and well-documented piece confirms that the Chinese and Dutch researchers did not fulfill Koch’s third postulate, which involves replicating or cloning the DNA to form a new copy of the virus and then injecting that new copy into a significant number of living hosts (usually lab animals) with the intent to reproduce the same discrete diagnostic symptoms associated with the virus. In fact, Frei discovered, after reviewing numerous research papers from all over the world, that not a single group of scientists was able to replicate or clone the DNA to form a new copy of the virus. In short, they failed to meet Koch’s third postulate.
Another team of investigative journalists, Torsten Engelbrecht and Konstantin Demeter, wrote an equally comprehensive article on the same subject for Off-Guardian. They, too, concluded that there is not a single research paper out there demonstrating that the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been successfully isolated and finally purified. In addition, Engelbrecht and Demeter discovered that “there is no scientific proof that those RNA sequences are the causative agent of what is called COVID-19.”
In other words, by not successfully fulfilling all of Koch’s postulates, scientists have thus far not proven the existence of any new coronavirus. This is why molecular biologist Dr. Andrew Kaufman has suggested in numerous interviews—on The Highwire and The Last American Vagabond and elsewhere—that the current coronavirus is not a new disease. Dr. Kaufman submits, moreover, that the particles scientists say they are looking at through their electron microscopes are perhaps not the virus at all but are, rather, exosomes being produced by the body. These exosomes, containing the same genetic material as a virus, are naturally produced by the human body as a defense mechanism in response to an external attack by a toxin emanating from our polluted environment. This would be a possible explanation as to why the “pandemic” started in China’s Wuhan province. This area of China is one of the most polluted places on earth. In Wuhan, the ecosystem in all its glorious biodiversity has been utterly destroyed by man-made pollutants and the heavy use of glyphosate in industrial farming.
Besides pollution, there is yet another plausible explanation as to why this particular coronavirus (if it exists, which some reputable experts highly doubt) may have possibly started in Wuhan. The internationally funded Wuhan Institute of Virology, which has proven financial tiesto the US government and is known for its poor safety standards, was involved in dangerous gain-of-function research to make bat viruses more lethal to humans. Several disturbing studies conducted by the lab “successfully” combined animal and human virus traits in ways that made them more dangerous to humans. This description of the institute’s research raises many questions. At present, there is not enough evidence to prove whether a pathogen was either intentionally released by the lab or was accidentally leaked into the environment. And, even if a virus was intentionally released into the environment as a bioweapon, the developers of this weapon did not do a good job. As we will see in the last fiction versus fact (below), this coronavirus has had virtually the same global infection fatality rate as the average seasonal flu. If anything, the influenza virus of 2017 was far more lethal than this year’s coronavirus.
Finally, this brings us to the multi-billion-dollar question on the virus isolation issue: If scientists have not properly identified the virus or the RNA gene sequences associated with the virus, how on earth are the vaccine companies developing a mRNA vaccine against a novel coronavirus, and what exactly will be in this vaccine? Perhaps this is why the initial vaccine trials conducted by biotech company Moderna, the US vaccine front-runner, and AstraZeneca, which leads the British Oxford Vaccine Group, have been unsatisfactory.
Fiction #3: The Reverse Transcriptase quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-qPCR) test is the best way to diagnose a patient with COVID-19.
Fact #3: The PCR test, which is currently being used by every nation to test for COVID-19, was initially designed by Nobel Prize-winning biochemist Kary Mullis. From its inception, the PCR was, and still is, a thermal cycling method used to replicate billions of copies of a specific DNA sample. Simply put, the PCR makes the DNA large enough so that scientists can study it. Although Mullis unexpectedly passed away in August 2019, we know what his thoughts were when it came to using his test as a diagnostic tool, thanks to an invaluableinterview he did in 1994 with investigative journalist Celia Farber. The interview leaves no doubt that Mullis argued against using the PCR as a diagnostic tool for detecting viruses.
Granted, the PCR test is capable of detecting even the minutest piece of DNA or RNA, but this is meaningless if scientists have not determined what specific RNA sequences they are actually searching for. And, in light of Fact #2, which established that no correct isolation and purification of the presumed virus has been executed, the PCR test is scientifically illogical.
That the PCR test is being misused, either unwittingly or wittingly hence fraudulently, on COVID-19 diagnoses cannot be overstated. According to the aforementioned Off-Guardian article by Torsten Engelbrecht, “it is worth mentioning that the PCR tests used to identify so-called COVID-19 patients presumably infected by what is called SARS-CoV-2 do not have a valid gold standard to compare them with. This is a fundamental point. Tests need to be validated to determine their ‘sensitivity’ and ‘specificity’—by comparison to a ‘gold standard,’ meaning the most accurate method available.” Engelbrecht makes clear that, to date, there is no valid gold standard for the PCR test because, thus far, no one has isolated and purified the alleged virus. Only unequivocal proof of the existence of a new SARS-CoV-2 can be considered the gold standard.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise when we find that the PCR test is plagued with outcomes that can indicate “false negatives” of up to 20 percent or “false positives” of up to an outrageous 70 percent! Both the US CDC and the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) are well aware that the PCR test has some major pitfalls. The CDC, for instance, states that “this test cannot rule out diseases caused by other bacterial or viral pathogens.” Meanwhile, the FDA has reviewed and summarised, for Accelerated Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) purposes, Laboratory Corporation of America’s LabCorp COVID-19 RT-PCR test and has slapped on it a warning label: “This test has not been FDA cleared or approved.” In the same summary, the FDA explains that “the agent detected may not be the definite cause of the disease.”
Given everything we now know about the inaccuracy of the PCR test, why is the World Health Organization (WHO) still insisting that every nation continue testing as many people as possible with this method?
Could it be because the entire narrative about the “pandemic” is riding on the distorted PCR test results?
Could it also be that the very high “false positive” rate perfectly fits an agenda of inflating the infection case numbers (not the mortality numbers) so as to instill fear into the minds and hearts of as many people as possible?
Could it be that injecting fear into the population enables the technocrats and their pawns to continue the draconian stay-at-home lockdowns and economically devastating business shutdowns and the ridiculous containment measures (such as physical distancing) and other punitive restrictions (e.g., fourteen-day quarantines after travel, even when the travel is a simple car trip between adjoining US states)? Could it be that they are purposely placing the lives of millions of people under enormous stress and in precipitous poverty?
Is this all part of a behavior modification process that will make it easier for social engineers (technocrats) to completely redesign society so that the distribution of all goods and services to the entire population and the consumption of energy by that population will be orchestrated by a select few self-appointed “experts”?
Technocracy News & Trends’ researcher/writer Patrick Wood lays out a plausible explanation for this scenario in his recent interview withDr. Joseph Mercola. In it, Wood notes that the technocracy movement, which started in the early twentieth century, “was always an economic movement, not a political system.” The destruction of the global economy, the removal of everyone’s inherent freedoms, the elimination of national sovereignty, and the accumulation of layers and layers of rules and regulations based on unsubstantiated science are ingredients that constitute the perfect recipe for any technocrat whose goal is to completely redesign society and implement an entirely new economic system.
Fiction #4: A “second wave” of new COVID-19 cases has already started in the United States.
Fact #4: There is no “second wave” of COVID-19 cases, nor will there be a “third wave.”
Sure, at first glance, it would appear that states like South Carolina, Nevada, Florida, Texas, Arizona, and California are indeed experiencing a huge surge in new COVID-19 cases. Upon second glance, though, we find two factors that explain this unnatural phenomenon.
First, what the media assiduously avoids mentioning is that in June these very same states undertook major campaigns to screen a vast swath of their populace with the PCR test—a viral assay that is employed not as an accurate diagnostic tool but, rather, as a means of inflating positive case counts.
While it is true that not all of the positive cases fall into the category of “false positive,” it is equally true, as Fact #2 makes clear, that the PCR assay detects even the minutest particle of RNA associated with any virus. Thus, the test can detect people who have developed antibody T-cells to any previous coronavirus or who are asymptomatic. Either way, these individuals are automatically classified as COVID-19 cases. How convenient for the pandemic-pushers! Such a generous classification means that even those patients undergoing elective surgery who happen to test positive during the hospital admission process are categorised as “hospitalised with COVID-19.”
John Thomas Littell, MD, a family physician in Ocala, Florida, wrote an astute letter to the editor of the Orlando Medical News, in which he perfectly summarises the COVID-19 data manipulation:
“So, in essence, any person with an influenza-like illness (ILI) could be considered a ‘case’ of COVID-19, even WITHOUT confirmatory lab testing. The CDC has even advised to consider any deaths from pneumonia or ILI as ‘COVID-related’ deaths—unless the physician or medical examiner establishes another infectious agent as the cause of illness.
“Now perhaps you see why the increasing number of cases, and even deaths, due to COVID-19 is fraught with misinterpretation and is NOT in any way a measure of the ACTUAL morbidity and mortality FROM COVID-19.”
Second, the news media rarely, if ever, mentions the all-important point that, although cases may be on the rise, the rates of mortality allegedly caused by the supposed new coronavirus are actually decreasing in the US, just as they are in the rest of the world.
How could that be? Because this non-novel, run-of-the-mill virus is on its way out. In reality, the states that were hit first at the start of the year—predominantly northern states like Washington, Ohio, and New York—were also the first to experience a consistent downward trend in mortality rates, commencing around mid-to-late April. (See the Worldometers website, which, despite its bloated fatality numbers, is nevertheless a good source for interpreting trends in mortality rates.) States in warmer climates, such as California, Arizona, Texas, and Florida, are only now, in mid-to-late-summer months, reaching their peak daily death rates. Soon they, too, will begin to show a decline in mortality rates.
Why is there a difference in the timing of these peaks and descents among the states? It just means that for any number of reasons—for instance, a variation between individuals in their susceptibility to infection and their propensity to infect others—different regions of the country have reached the Herd Immunity Threshold (HIT) at different times. The HIT is the percentage of the population that needs to be immune in order to prevent the disease from spreading. This value varies among not only regions but nations as well. It is usually around the 10 percent to 20 percent mark for the seasonal flu—meaning that once the HIT value passes 20 percent, the rate of new infections starts to decline until the virus is extinguished.
In January 2020, health officials and scientists originally thought that the HIT value for COVID-19 was going to be over 60 percent. But after five months a very different picture emerged. From a team of international research scientists who released a paper on herd immunityin late July, we learn that the global HIT this year was in the aforementioned 10–20 percent range. And thanks to the intrepid research done by J.B. Handley, a frequent contributing writer to the Children’s Health Defense website, we now know that the HIT value for COVID-19 in the US this year has also been in the 10-20 percent range, just like any seasonal flu. Hence, we can conclude from this data that over 70 percent of the population has already developed a natural immunity to the virus from previous exposure to corona-type viruses.
All of this proves that our complex and beautifully designed immunity system, which produces killer T-cells and antibodies to fight off all viruses for the purpose of building herd immunity, is doing exactly what it has been doing for the past 200,000 years. Not incidentally, most of those years were before vaccines were dreamed up, developed, and brought to market. Had this not been the case, the human species would have vanished off the face of the earth long ago.
Despite the empty rhetoric of our politicians, we now know that the draconian, counterproductive lockdown measures (read: the shutdown of the global economy) imposed by local, state, provincial, and national governments (read: and their technocrat handlers) have nothing to do with defeating the spread of the virus. If anything, the mandatory lockdowns only postpone the day when herd immunity is inevitably reached. Even New Zealand, which completely closed itself off from the rest of the world at the start of the fake pandemic, was simply delaying its day of reckoning.
If one wanted to delay a society from reaching herd immunity from the flu for as long as possible, one would do the following to everyone (including healthy people, who have no comorbidities): impose strict, lengthy quarantine measures after travel, isolate even non-travelers in their homes for most hours of the day, enforce physical distancing rules, require the use of face masks, close everything from beaches and amusement parks and stadiums to restaurants and hair salons and, God forbid, churches and temples and mosques! Oh, and shut down schools. As we have seen, this is exactly what the political and medical “rulers”—including fake philanthropists—of most countries did, to their barely suppressed delight and to everyone else’s dismay.
A country that stands in stark contrast to this stalling tactic is Sweden. It has refused to participate in the total lockdown strategy. Instead, from the first, it allowed herd immunity to build up naturally. Yet Sweden’s HIT value is at 14 percent—in the same range as the nations that did impose lockdowns. By keeping its economy open and isolating only its vulnerable citizens (the elderly and people with comorbidities), Sweden was the only major economy in the world that grew in the first quarter of the year. Meanwhile, according to the data collected by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the US decreased 34.3 percent, or $2.15 trillion, in the second quarter, to a level of $19.41 trillion. This is the most devastating collapse in GDP ever recorded.
The GDP drop doesn’t take into account the incalculable human losses—the slide into poverty, the despair, the mental breakdowns, the suicides—that the cruelly counterproductive lockdown has created. Commenting on these detrimental effects, Stanford University’s 2013 Chemistry Nobel Laureate Dr. Michael Levitt said in an interview: “There is no doubt in my mind that when we come to look back on this, the damage done by the lockdown will exceed any saving of lives by a huge factor.”
Fiction #5: The Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) for COVID-19 is far greater than the seasonal influenza.
Fact#5: The IFR is the ratio of deaths attributed to a disease divided by the number of actual infections. Unique to COVID-19, the IFR includes both confirmed and undiagnosed cases, as perversely directed by the CDC. Family physician Dr. Scott Jensen, who is also a Minnesota state senator, explains in an interview on Fox News that this practice of combining both diagnosed and undiagnosed cases is simply a tool to “game the numbers” so that the government can conveniently inflate the death toll and scare the public into believing COVID-19 is more deadly than it actually is.
(Aside: Jensen’s refreshing candor stands in stark contrast to the apparent go-along-to-get-along mentality of the many doctors who remained silent when he sounded the alarm over the health authorities’ suspicious-sounding instructions. Not that Jensen is without equally courageous colleagues. In fact, he belongs to a new group of more than 600 physicians who call themselves America’s Frontline Doctors and who are calling out US authorities for suppressing information about and access to the coronavirus-slaying drug Hydroxychloroquine. Their July 27thpress conference video from the steps of the US Supreme Court went viral before being banned across all social media platforms.)
In the developed world, the Infection Fatality Rate for a seasonal influenza is 0.1–0.2 percent. Bizarrely, the WHO’s initial estimate in March 2020 pegged the IFR for COVID-19 at 3.4 percent. We have since learned, from the meticulous serological studies done by Stanford University epidemiologist and professor of medicine Dr. John Ioannidis (and from many other equally scrupulous scientists around the world), that the global average for COVID-19 is actually about 0.2 percent—in line with the seasonal flu and vastly lower than the WHO’s 3.4 percent gross overestimate. In light of this scientific fact, we must ask the obvious question: Why do we need a global vaccine regimen imposed on everyone for a virus that has the same low fatality rate as the seasonal flu?
Though Dr. Ioannidis’ study was published in late May, he had determined as early as April—after analyzing twelve separate IFR studies conducted by researchers around the world—that the IFR for COVID-19 was in the range 0.07 to 0.2 percent. In addition, one month after his conclusion was published, the US CDC admitted that the overall IFR rate is just 0.26 percent. Yet even this number is slightly high. For when the CDC calculates the mortality rate, it includes both confirmed and presumptive positive cases of COVID-19. The CDCannouncement should have caused every government to pause and rethink their restrictive, hurtful strategies. But nothing changed. Instead, this desperately needed perspective from the world’s leading scientists never even made headlines. Why? Apparently it fit neither the official narrative of COVID-19’s dangers nor the promises being made by “public health expert” Bill Gates of the wonders of the coming anti-COVID-19 vaccine.
From the inception of this manufactured crisis, way back in January 2020—which now feels like a lifetime ago!—the stated purpose for the lockdown measures was to “flatten the curve” so that hospitals everywhere would not be overwhelmed by the inevitable wave of incoming COVID-19 patients. Governments around the world did exactly that: they flattened the curve to the point of destroying the lives of millions of people and ruining their own national economies.
Strange, isn’t it, that apparently very few hospitals, including in big cities, have been overrun by patients. Take for example, the Berlin hospital that a German journalist walked through at the height of the pandemic, only to discover, to his surprise, that no one was there. Or check out what citizen journalists were video recording in supposedly maxed-out-with-patients hospitals around the US. Incidentally, this Dana Ashlie video, which can be seen on BitChute, was banned from YouTube for purportedly violating Terms of Service. (Translation: Facts that contradict the pandemic propagandists’ fakery mustn’t be seen or heard by the general public, lest their fear of a virulent, fatal disease be deflated like a popped balloon.)
Strange, too, that many so-called COVID-19 cases were anything but. Consider, for example, the situation in Italy, where “only 12 per cent of the death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88 per cent of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity—many had two or three.”
Strange, too, that in New York State, all the cases deemed to be COVID-19 were elderly patients who were removed from hospitals and dumped in nursing homes, where neglect and overcrowding and even the emotional toll produced by loneliness and fear resulted in many sickeningly sudden and sad deaths.
And isn’t it especially strange that one of the most obvious outcomes of flattening the curve was the loss of everyone’s constitutional, civil, medical, parental, and religious rights? It was as if there had been a plan all along to dispense not only with lives, but also with rights—including the right to dissent!
Now here we are, months later, still being bombarded by scary scenarios. Every major news outlet pounds us with fear-mongering predictions of second and third waves. The engineered-to-skyrocket cases of COVID-19 in the US are dominating the headlines. Some state governors and state and county health authorities and privately owned establishments are imposing ever-more-onerous rules regarding face masks and physical distancing—rules they realize would never pass the legal smell test in normal times, much less in a court of law. Meanwhile, the same dictators are doubling down on their innocent-sounding “let’s all get tested” message.
As the above five facts have shown, all of these public health measures are based on unsubstantiated science. Moreover, we have not even begun to feel the long-lasting economic effects of the “pandemic.” In the coming months and years, our national economies will become much more precarious. Is it possible that we already cash-strapped citizens will be ordered to pay back the billions of dollars that have been divvied out to us by our Big Brother governments?
In some places, lockdowns may be gradually easing. But the relief measures being implemented have not helped the countless mid-sized and small business owners who have, one by one, decided to board their doors and close up shop forever. They are suffering twice-over: they must watch their own families be penalized and at the same time feel guilty for having to bid farewell to their employees, who by the millions are looking for non-existent jobs and standing in long unemployment lines. As layoffs keep mounting, nations are facing a massive fiscal crisis at the very time when their badly needed tax revenues are disappearing. In the near future, national governments will be forced to hand over entire sectors of the economy to their creditors, such as Goldman Sachs and BlackRock. In the end, private financial oligarchies will literally own the US and other nations, further eviscerating the concept of national sovereignty.
So, why are we being forced to travel down this rocky road? One possible explanation could be that many governments may consider it political suicide to admit that their approach has been wrong. Thus, instead of immediately correcting their course of action, they are incrementally shifting gears. But could there be something far more sinister at play here? Could this entire “pandemic” be a gigantic smokescreen designed to conceal the diabolical actions of the globalist technocrats, whose agenda is to literally create, possess, and control a single worldwide economy and a single worldwide government?
If we follow the money trail, we can determine who some of the possible beneficiaries of such a fiendish agenda could be.
To begin, let’s look at the financial sector. Since the US mortgage and market crash of 2008, none of the mechanisms that allowed the crash to occur have been removed. True, for the past twelve years, the stock market has appeared to recover. In reality, though, the market is the opposite of healthy. It has been surviving mainly on stock buybacks by companies that have been using some of their profits to buy their own stocks in order to prop up prices. This scheme has provided the illusion that the economy is thriving. But the stock market’s action is not an absolute indicator of the real economy’s production and consumption.
Indeed, by the summer of 2019 it had become evident that not even the stock buyback strategy was going to keep the lumbering economy alive. Thus, as a short-term solution, the New York Federal Reserve last September started injecting billions of dollars into the stock market in the form of short-term loans (repos). While the intent was to keep the stock market chugging along, the effect was more like kicking an empty tin can down the road for as long as possible until finally the road ends. Eventually, a long-term solution would have to be found to reset the entire world economy. Enter the “shadow bank” BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager with over $7 trillion dollars in assets under direct management and another $20 trillion managed through its Aladdin risk-monitoring software.
In a statement released in August 2019 on Bloomberg News, BlackRock observed that “the current policy space for global central banks is limited and will not be enough to respond to a significant, let alone a dramatic, downturn.” To solve this problem, BlackRock hired former central bankers from the US, Canada, and Switzerland. Their orders were to devise a plan that would enable BlackRock to expand its role in the global fiscal and monetary policy arena by blurring the lines between government fiscal policy and central bank monetary policy. The plan was due by the end of August.
Are we surprised that the COVID-19 crisis precipitated the very dramatic downturn to which BlackRock alluded mere months earlier? Hardly. Both the pandemic and the ensuing stock market crash have presented the perfect opportunity for BlackRock and other central banks to take full control of global monetary policy. The economic reset that the globalists have been talking about since 2014, both at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Bank for International Settlements (BIS)—and, more recently, in June 2020, at the World Economic Forum (WEF)—is now well underway.
After the market crashed in late February, the Federal Reserve came out with a $10 trillion USD bailout package, of which $454 billion is to be administered by BlackRock under the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). In other words, this money from taxpayers to the government will be used to directly buy stocks, bonds, junk bonds, mortgages, and junk mortgages from Wall Street investment firms. These purchases are designed to inflate the value of stock market assets. In the US, some 85 percent of these assets are held by the richest 10 percent of Americans. BlackRock has also been hired by the Bank of Canada and Sweden’s central bank, Riksbank, to implement their respective stimulus plans.
Keep in mind that none of this money will be fueling real economic activity. None of it will be used to help millions of people revive their small businesses and improve their living standards. It is, pure and simple, a bailout package for the players in the global stock market. It provides the illusion that the Main Street economy is on the mend. Governments claim the stimulus money will be used to build the means of production and help small business. Truthfully, the exact inverse is occurring: the largest redistribution of wealth in human history is taking place, which will only increase the gap in income inequality throughout the world.
Although there is no “smoking gun” to definitively prove that the COVID-19 pandemic was the preplanned pretext for launching the much-vaunted “Great Reset,” the timing is nonetheless too coincidental to ignore.
Now, let’s look at another group that could massively gain from this supposed pandemic: the pharmaceutical industry. If this industry, with Bill Gates at its helm, successfully launches its campaign to vaccinate every person on the planet against SARS-Cov-2, the drug-and-vaccine-makers could potentially rake in tens of billions of dollars.
Big Pharma holds tremendous sway in the political realm—both internationally and domestically. In mid-April, President Donald Trumpannounced that the US would be ending its financial support for the World Health Organization, which he accused of “severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of the coronavirus.” In previous years, the top funder for WHO had been the US government, followed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The third-biggest donor to WHO was Gates-founded-and-funded GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance. Thus, if Trump’s move to defund that international body goes through, it will elevate both the Gates Foundation and Gates’s GAVI to the top of the global health pyramid. This would further tighten Bill and his wife Melinda’s already firm grip on WHO and thus strengthen their ability to formulate global “health” policy.
As if further signaling its disdain for WHO, in early June the Trump administration boosted its support for GAVI with a donation of a $1.16 billion USD (again, taxpayer dollars) via the first-ever virtual Global Vaccine Summit. That huge sum stands in stark contrast to the US government’s modest contributions to WHO of $401 million in 2017 and $281.6 million in 2018.
During the same summit, GAVI received from many other nations large contributions that totaled $8.8 billion USD. (The Rockefeller Foundation, which has numerous ties to the vaccine agenda, kicked in $5 million of that sum.) These injections of liquidity—ominously reminiscent of the injections of liquid that are known as vaccines—will provide GAVI with all of the funding it needs for the purpose of pushing the global vaccine agenda on governments and for maintaining its role in “public-private partnerships” with governmental bodies and private companies.
For those of us who may not be conversant with the lobbying process, here’s how it works across national borders. Because neither Bill Gates nor his foundation can directly lobby a foreign government, being a founding partner of GAVI enables Gates to seek out and hire representatives in targeted nations who will lobby on behalf of his interests.
In Canada, for instance, GAVI has hired Crestview Strategy, an Ottawa-based lobbying firm that specialises in shaping government policy by speaking directly to the Canadian government’s key decision-makers and opinion leaders. The government relations page on Crestview’s website defines its mission thusly:
“Crestview Strategy effectively represents the interests of corporations, not-for-profits and industry associations to achieve results with governments around the world.”
While representing “the interests of corporations, not-for-profits and industry associations” in pushing the vaccine message on behalf of GAVI, has Crestview crossed an ethical threshold? In other words, has there been any collusion between Gates proxy Crestview and the Canadian government? Or is it pure coincidence that Prime Minister Trudeau shares Bill Gates’s view that only a mass vaccination program will allow populations to return to lives of normalcy?
It depends who you ask and what they know. Journalists at Canuck Law, an independent media outlet that investigates political corruption in Canada, answer “yes” to collusion and “no” to pure coincidence. Canuck Law researchers dug up the fact that Crestview Strategy employs two former Liberal Party associates, Jason Clark and Zakery Blais, to lobby the Canadian government on behalf of GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance. These two Liberal Party operatives-turned-lobbyists met with the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) staff—the chief of staff, the director of policy and planning, a policy advisor, and a special assistant—as well as with members of Parliament on at least nineteen occasions between March 2018 and January 2020 to push the GAVI vaccine message. Records show that a third Crestview employee, Jennifer Babcock, who has since left the firm, lobbied the government for GAVI just one time.
Canuck Law explains: “These are just 20 reports that are on file with the Office of the Lobbying Commissioner. It’s fair to assume that there have been many, many more talks that aren’t documented.” It therefore comes as no surprise that Ottawa has thus far shelled out some $800 million for Gates’s global vaccine agenda and that PM Justin Trudeau constantly refers to society as living in “the new normal until a vaccine is found.”
In the US government, the level of corruption among vaccine promoters is more entrenched and insidious. Big Pharma far outpaces all other industries in spending on lobbying in Washington, D.C. In 2019, for instance, it spent twice as much on lobbying as the oil and gas industry and almost three times more than the defense industry. There are more pharmaceutical industry lobbyists than the 435 representatives in the House and the 100 US senators combined. Drug-and-vaccine-makers and their industry associations and paid corporate lobbyists aim to influence any and all related legislation and regulations. They also seek preferential treatment through campaign contributions. No wonder the State of Tennessee has already mandated that students are required to get the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available. No wonder, too, that the Trump administration on July 31st handed over $2.1 billion in taxpayer money to GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Sanofi to expedite further COVID-19 vaccine development.
The Total Surveillance Grid is Forming
Now that we have seen who some of the financial winners are in this orchestrated pandemic, let’s examine how the know-it-all technocrats and parasitic, predator globalists plan to monitor and track our every move.
Their total surveillance grid, hiding in plain sight behind the COVID-19 scamdemic, is being tested in West Africa before it is rolled out in the rest of the world. Here, the Gates-tied GAVI and Mastercard and the AI-powered “identity authentication” company Trust Stamp have joined forces in the effort to link a biometric digital identity system, vaccination records, and a “cashless” payment system all into a single platform.
Under this alliance, Mastercard’s Wellness Pass program will be integrated into Trust Stamp’s biometric identity platform. The Wellness Pass will thus be capable of providing biometric identity information on any person, even in areas of the world lacking internet access or cellular connectivity. Moreover, the Wellness Pass will also be linked to an individual’s cashless payment system. This could potentially provide authorities with the ability to block a person’s account if he does not abide by certain mandates regarding health measures. Such massive surveillance and control are eerily similar to China’s “social credit” system.
This entirely new Trust Stamp platform will be coupled with the COVID-19 vaccination program, if and when a vaccine becomes available, through a COVI-PASS, the brand name for a digital health passport, which authorities will automatically download (push) to your device. The COVI-PASS, which was developed by British cybersecurity company VST Enterprises in partnership with several other tech firms, is slated to be rolled out in fifteen countries across the world, including Canada, Italy, Portugal, France, Spain, Panama, South Africa, Mexico, United Arab Emirates, and the Netherlands. The pass will contain a person’s COVID-19 test results and vaccination history plus any relevant health information. A truly Orwellian prospect!
Gates’s funding is not strictly limited to the field of global health. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, in cooperation with GAVI, is also deeply tied to ID2020—a global digital ID system that will combine both birth registration records and vaccination records to create a digital identity for every person on planet Earth.
At first glance, ID2020 may seem like it’s the same concept as the COVI-PASS, but it is actually far more. The COVI-PASS, as mentioned above, relates more to one’s health record, whereas ID2020 is a complete identification record of your entire life. It is your driver’s license, passport, work identification pass, building access card, debt and credit cards, transit passes, police record, health records, and more—all wrapped up in one identification system. It is being sold to us by the statists as a new and improved means of “protecting our civil liberties and personal data,” when in reality the exact inverse is true: as with any electronic device, it can and will be used by the-powers-that-shouldn’t-be to monitor a person’s every move, and if necessary, restrict a person’s movements.
Although ID2020 was originally formed in 2019, when GAVI joined forces with the Rockefeller Foundation, Microsoft, Accenture, and IDEO.org, it was put into motion by the globalists at the onset of the supposed pandemic. And it is now being tested in Bangladesh. Once again, as we have already seen in the above-mentioned economic reset, the COVID-19 crisis presents the perfect opportunity to launch the ID2020 system.
The Path Forward
We must now ask ourselves: Is it merely coincidence that these measures—the economic reset, the implementation of ID2020, the creation of Trust Stamp, and Mastercard’s Wellness program—are all being put into motion, simultaneously, on the heels of the fabricated pandemic? We may never find out if their joint appearance is a coordinated effort by just a few top technocrats or by all the participants in these schemes—the usually compartmentalization of information and tasks keeps the lower-level actors from knowing the real purpose and the high-up players in any scheme of this sort.
What is certain, though, is that all of the medical martial law edicts that have been issued in united fashion have been based on unsubstantiated science. Equally clear is that the drive for a global COVID-19 vaccine regimen and the global surveillance grid are moving ahead in concert to transform the world as we know it—if we allow it to happen. As Professor Michel Chossudovsky and others have often said, we need mass movements, such as the #ExposeBillGates movement, to counter and dismantle the technocrats’ diabolical designs on us.
When and if our governments ever signal—presumably post-mass vaccination— that it is time to return to normal, beware. We must nevergo back to the old normal. For it is this old normal—based on a corrupt and broken paradigm—that landed us in pandemic prison in the first place. We must move forward with the new knowledge we have acquired in recent months, and we must build a better paradigm—one based on truth and compassion for all of humanity.
Madame Curie was right. Nothing is to be feared, it is only to be understood. We must fearlessly speak out and share this information.
Welcome to the age of fear. Nothing is more corrosive of the democratic impulse than fear. Left unaddressed, it festers, eating away at our confidence and empathy.
We are now firmly in a time of fear – not only of the virus, but of each other. Fear destroys solidarity. Fear forces us to turn inwards to protect ourselves and our loved ones. Fear refuses to understand or identify with the concerns of others.
In fear societies, basic rights become a luxury. They are viewed as a threat, as recklessness, as a distraction that cannot be afforded in this moment of crisis.
Once fear takes hold, populations risk agreeing to hand back rights, won over decades or centuries, that were the sole, meagre limit on the power of elites to ransack the common wealth. In calculations based on fear, freedoms must make way for other priorities: being responsible, keeping safe, averting danger.
Worse, rights are surrendered with our consent because we are persuaded that the rights themselves are a threat to social solidarity, to security, to our health.
‘Too noisy’ protests
It is therefore far from surprising that the UK’s draconian new Police and Crime Bill – concentrating yet more powers in the police – has arrived at this moment. It means that the police can prevent non-violent protest that is likely to be too noisy or might create “unease” in bystanders. Protesters risk being charged with a crime if they cause “nuisance” or set up protest encampments in public places, as the Occupy movement did a decade ago.
And damaging memorials – totems especially prized in a time of fear for their power to ward off danger – could land protesters, like those who toppled a statue to notorious slave trader Edward Colston in Bristol last summer, a 10-year jail sentence.
In other words, this is a bill designed to outlaw the right to conduct any demonstration beyond the most feeble and ineffective kind. It makes permanent current, supposedly extraordinary limitations on protest that were designed, or so it was said, to protect the public from the immediate threat of disease.
Protest that demands meaningful change is always noisy and disruptive. Would the suffragettes have won women the vote without causing inconvenience and without offending vested interests that wanted them silent?
What constitutes too much noise or public nuisance? In a time of permanent pandemic, it is whatever detracts from the all-consuming effort to extinguish our fear and insecurity. When we are afraid, why should the police not be able to snatch someone off the street for causing “unease”?
The UK bill is far from unusual. Similar legislation – against noisy, inconvenient and disruptive protest – is being passed in states across the United States. Just as free speech is being shut down on the grounds that we must not offend, so protest is being shut down on the grounds that we must not disturb.
From the outbreak of the virus, there were those who warned that the pandemic would soon serve as a pretext to take away basic rights and make our societies less free. Those warnings soon got submerged in, or drowned out by, much wilder claims, such as that the virus was a hoax or that it was similar to flu, or by the libertarian clamour against lockdowns and mask-wearing.
What was notable was the readiness of the political and media establishments to intentionally conflate and confuse reasonable and unreasonable arguments to discredit all dissent and lay the groundwork for legislation of this kind.
The purpose has been to force on us unwelcome binary choices. We are either in favour of all lockdowns or indifferent to the virus’ unchecked spread. We are either supporters of enforced vaccinations or insensitive to the threat the virus poses to the vulnerable. We are either responsible citizens upholding the rules without question or selfish oafs who are putting everyone else at risk.
A central fracture line has opened up – in part a generational one – between those who are most afraid of the virus and those who are most afraid of losing their jobs, of isolation and loneliness, of the damage being done to their children’s development, of the end of a way of life they valued, or of the erasure of rights they hold inviolable.
The establishment has been sticking its crowbar into that split, trying to prise it open and turn us against each other.
‘Kill the Bill’
Where this heads was only too visible in the UK at the weekend when protesters took to the streets of major cities. They did so – in another illustration of binary choices that now dominate our lives – in violation of emergency Covid regulations banning protests. There was a large march through central London, while another demonstration ended in clashes between protesters and police in Bristol.
What are the protesters – most peaceful, a few not – trying to achieve? In the media, all protest at the moment is misleadingly lumped together as “anti-lockdown”, appealing to the wider public’s fear of contagion spread. But that is more misdirection: in the current, ever-more repressive climate, all protest must first be “anti-lockdown” before it can be protest.
The truth is that the demonstrators are out on the streets for a wide variety of reasons, including to protest against the oppressive new Police and Crime Bill, under the slogan “Kill the Bill”.
There are lots of well-founded reasons for people to be angry or worried at the moment. But the threat to that most cherished of all social freedoms – the right to protest – deserves to be at the top of the list.
If free speech ensures we have some agency over our own minds, protest allows us to mobilise collectively once we have been persuaded of the need and urgency to act. Protest is the chance we have to alert others to the strength of our feelings and arguments, to challenge a consensus that may exist only because it has been manufactured by political and media elites, and to bring attention to neglected or intentionally obscured issues.
Speech and protest are intimately connected. Free speech in one’s own home – like free speech in a prison cell – is a very stunted kind of freedom. It is not enough simply to know that something is unjust. In democratic societies, we must have the right to do our best to fix injustice.
Cast out as heretics
Not so long ago, none of this would have needed stating. It would have been blindingly obvious. No longer. Large sections of the population are happy to see speech rights stripped from those they don’t like or fear. They are equally fine, it seems, with locking up people who cause a “nuisance” or are “too noisy” in advancing a cause with which they have no sympathy – especially so long as fear of the pandemic takes precedence.
That is how fear works. The establishment has been using fear to keep us divided and weak since time immemorial. The source of our fear can be endlessly manipulated: black men, feminists, Jews, hippies, travellers, loony lefties, libertarians. The only limitation is that the object of our fear must be identifiable and distinguishable from those who think of themselves as responsible, upstanding citizens.
In a time of pandemic, those who are to be feared can encompass anyone who does not quietly submit to those in authority. Until recently there had been waning public trust in traditional elites such as politicians, journalists and economists. But that trend has been reversed by a new source of authority – the medical establishment.
Because today’s mantra is “follow the science”, anyone who demurs from or questions that science – even when the dissenters are other scientists – can be cast out as a heretic. The political logic of this is rarely discussed, even though it is profoundly dangerous.
Politicians have much to gain from basking in the reflected authority of science. And when politics and science are merged, as is happening now, dissent can be easily reformulated as either derangement or criminal intent. On this view, to be against lockdown or to be opposed to taking a vaccine is not just wrong but as insane as denying the laws of gravity. It is proof of one’s irrationality, of the menace one poses to the collective.
But medicine – the grey area between the science and art of human health – is not governed by laws in the way gravity is. That should be obvious the moment we consider the infinitely varied ways Covid has affected us as individuals.
The complex interplay between mind and body means reactions to the virus, and the drugs to treat it, are all but impossible to predict with any certainty. Which is why there are 90-year-olds who have comfortably shaken off the virus and youths who have been felled by it.
But a politics of “follow the science” implies that issues relating to the virus and how we respond to it – or how we weigh the social and economic consequences of those responses – are purely scientific. That leaves no room for debate, for disagreement. And authoritarianism is always lurking behind the façade of political certainty.
Public coffers raided
In a world where politicians, journalists and medical elites are largely insulated from the concerns of ordinary people – precisely the world we live in – protest is the main way to hold these elites accountable, to publicly test their political and “scientific” priorities against our social and economic priorities.
That is a principle our ancestors fought for. You don’t have to agree with what Piers Corbyn says to understand the importance that he and others be allowed to say it – and not just in their living rooms, and not months or years hence, if and when the pandemic is declared over.
The right to protest must be championed even through a health crisis –most especially during a health crisis, when our rights are most vulnerable to erasure. The right to protest needs to be supported even by those who back lockdowns, even by those who fear that protests during Covid are a threat to public health. And for reasons that again should not need stating.
Politicians and the police must not be the ones to define what protests are justified, what protests are safe, what protests are responsible.
Because otherwise, those in power who took advantage of the pandemic to raid the public coffers and waste billions of pounds on schemes whose main purpose was to enrich their friends have every reason to dismiss anyone who protests against their cupidity and incompetence as endangering public health.
Because otherwise, leaders who want to crush protests against their their current, and future, criminal negligence with extraordinary new police powers have every incentive to characterise their critics as anti-lockdown, or anti-vaccine, or anti-public order, or anti-science – or whatever other pretext they think will play best with the “responsible” public as they seek to cling to power.
And because otherwise, the government may decide it is in its interests to stretch out the pandemic – and the emergency regulations supposedly needed to deal with it – for as long as possible.
Quite how mercurial are the current arguments for and against protest was highlighted by widespread anger at the crushing by the Metropolitan Police this month of a vigil following the murder of Sarah Everard in London. A Met police officer has been charged with kidnapping and murdering her.
In the spirit of the times, there has been much wider public sympathy for a vigil for a murder victim than there has been for more overtly political demonstrations like those against the Police and Crime Bill. But if health threats are really the measure of whether large public gatherings are allowed – if we “follow the science” – then neither is justified.
That is not a conclusion any of us should be comfortable with. It is not for governments to select which types of protests they are willing to confer rights on, even during a pandemic. We either uphold the right of people to congregate when they feel an urgent need to protest – whether it be against the erosion of basic freedoms, or in favour of greater safety for vulnerable communities, or against political corruption and incompetence that costs lives – or we do not.
We either support the right of every group to hold our leaders to account or we do not. Selective freedoms, inconsistent freedoms, are freedom on licence from those in power. They are no freedom at all.
Fight for survival
What the UK’s Police and Crime Bill does, like similar legislation in the US and Europe, is to declare some protests as legitimate and others as not. It leaves it to our leaders to decide, as they are trying to do now through the pandemic, which protests constitute a “nuisance” and which do not.
The political logic of the Bill is being contested by a minority – the hippies, the leftists, the libertarians. They are standing up for the right to protest, as the majority complacently assumes that they will have no need of protest.
That is pure foolishness. We are all damaged when the right to protest is lost.
It is unlikely that the aim of the Police and Crime Bill is to keep us permanently locked down – as some fear. It has another, longer-term goal. It is being advanced in recognition by our elites that we are hurtling towards an environmental dead-end for which they have no solutions, given their addiction to easy profits and their own power.
Already a small minority understand that we are running out of time. Groups like Extinction Rebellion – just like the sufragettes before them – believe the majority can only be woken from their induced slumber if they are disturbed by noise, if their lives are disrupted.
This sane minority is treading the vanishingly thin line between alienating the majority and averting oblivion for our species. As the stakes grow higher, as awareness of imminent catastrophe intensifies, those wishing to make a nuisance of themselves, to be noisy, will grow.
What we decide now determines how that struggle plays out: whether we get to take control of our future and the fight for our survival, or whether we are forced to stay mute as the disaster unfolds.
So pray for the “anti-lockdown” protesters whether you support their cause or not – for they carry the heavy weight of tomorrow on their shoulders.
On the fringes of a demonstration against the introduction of the green passport in Italy, a demonstrator described what we citizens can expect in the near future – if we let it happen:
“We will soon see how the vaccinated will attack us. People are being played off against each other.
Last year it was those who had jobs and those who lost them. This year, society will be divided between those who are vaccinated and those who are not.” (1)
Peaceful citizens are thus pitted against each other to advance the eugenics agenda of the ruling “elite”. Those responsible for this diabolical plan will wash their hands of the matter and blame the expected coven – as in every war – on the supposedly innate aggression instinct of man. But this is a myth that has always served tyrants of all stripes as a welcome legitimisation for fratricide or genocide. In truth, man is inherently good and not evil.
“The myth of the aggression instinct”
The doctrine of the inherited aggression drive or aggression instinct is one of the most controversial formulas with the help of which psychoanalysts and animal behaviourists seek to explain problems of the political and social situation, indeed of the history of human coexistence per se. But the self-evidence with which, following Konrad Lorenz (1903-1983), an innate aggression instinct is spoken of is by no means justified. This is shown by representatives of various sciences in the anthology “Der Mythos vom Aggressionstrieb” (2). Lorenz was an Austrian representative of “animal psychology”. According to the findings of the human sciences anthropology, sociology and psychology, man is by nature good and not evil.
Man has an inhibition to kill, an original aversion to killing. However, in order for him to attack his fellow human being anyway, this inhibition must be eliminated through appropriate explanations. The German philosopher Arno Plack calls it in the above-mentioned anthology from the 1970s:
“Militant leaders always had and have to reckon with the fact that a vital conscience resists carrying out orders to kill. And they took this into account by declaring, as they have done over the centuries, that the people or group they were fighting against were not really human beings at all, but ‘higher animals’ (as Pope Paul III said of the Indians) or ‘beasts’, ‘heathens’, ‘witches’, ‘subhumans’, ‘vermin’ even, which had to be exterminated. Thus manipulation of consciousness on the part of murderous rulers intervenes to bring people who still feel differently up to speed.” (3)
This view of Plack’s is confirmed by more recent specialist literature. For the renowned American social psychologist and violence researcher Philip Zimbardo, it is the power of circumstances that makes people violent criminals and murderers. In his book “The Lucifer Effect” he writes:
“It is not disposition that makes good people do evil, but the situation they find themselves in or are put in.” (4)
The prerequisite for the acts, he says, is that the victims are declared a threat and dehumanised at the same time. In Rwanda, the Hutu government proclaimed that Tutsis were nothing more than “hangovers” and therefore deserved to die. German Nazis portrayed Jews as dangerous “vermin”.
Today, the large group of unvaccinated fellow citizens is declared by the adlates of the ruling “elite” to be a life-threatening danger to the health of the population group of the already vaccinated, which should be urgently fought against or even excluded from the human community. Independent thinkers have long been discriminated against as confused “lateral thinkers”, as incorrigible “conspiracy theorists” and thus as a threat to those in power – and cleared for shooting down by the mass media. Where will this lead, if more and more authority-affiliated, government-loyal fellow citizens join this misanthropic and dangerous view – and the victims of this state discrimination campaign will not put up with it? The worldwide demonstrations and the apparent use of disproportionate force by mandated police forces does not bode well.
Holocaust survivor Vera Sharav: “History repeats itself”
The past histories of past civil, regional and world wars provide enough illustrative material to make one prick up one’s ears and yet still be perceptive. This includes the denigration of the Russian president and Russian citizens that has been going on for years as a method of psychological warfare.
In an article in the Austrian “Wochenblick” of 3 July, the Holocaust survivor, Mrs. Vera Sharav, is quoted as saying: “History repeats itself” (5). It is worth quoting longer passages from this article verbatim:
“Vera Sharav survived the Holocaust as a child. She describes: ‘When I came to New York, I asked myself: where was everyone? Where was everyone when I was in hell?’ Justice and not looking away when injustice happens is therefore a major concern for Sharav. Sucharit Bhakdi was recently accused of being anti-Semitic for calling Israel ‘hell on earth’. But Holocaust survivor Vera Sharav agrees with him: ‘I wish it were not so.’ History is repeating itself. They call for Nuremberg trials for those responsible for the Covid ‘crime against humanity’.
“The Nazi crimes happened without contradiction to International Law. But the Nuremberg Trials emerged, which provided justice and introduced the concept of crimes against humanity. So that something like what happened in Nazi Germany could never happen again. The Nuremberg Code was introduced in the wake of the Doctors’ Trials (1946) after World War II and was intended to ensure the ethical treatment of people by the media. But nevertheless, history is now repeating itself. (…)
It is terrible for Sharav to witness the decline of democracy now. The constitutionally guaranteed rights of freedom have been suspended, as in Nazi Germany, analyses the Holocaust survivor. This is a great betrayal of trust that the governments are committing against their people. Sharav strongly criticises the Israeli government. She is shocked at how non-vaccinated people are demonised. ‘Under the Nazis, Jews were stigmatised as spreaders of disease and locked up in camps.‘ Now a two-class society would be created again. Society would be divided into the privileged and the underprivileged.” (6)
Her blood pressure was high and she still had a racing heart, so she was admitted to the hospital. The following day, she took off her clothes in the hospital and proceeded to defecate on the floor.
While researchers describe this as “first instance of anti-NMDAR encephalitis after receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine,” other reports of a sudden onset of psychosis after COVID vaccination have already been reported and documented.
Communicating with the Dead
A report published in Psychiatry Research in October describes a 31-year-old single Hispanic office manager who was rushed by police to an emergency room for “erratic and bizarre behavior”.
He was anxious, guarded and claiming to be a “clairvoyant” able to communicate with the dead, hearing “people drumming outside his house” and a constant voice of a colleague he believed to be his lover, but had no romantic relationship with.
Symptoms began a month earlier as he received his first dose of mRNA based COVID-19 vaccine, according to reports from doctors at Stony Brook University and Northport Veteran Administration Medical Center in New York City.
They gradually got worse until he was admitted to the neurology department at the hospital. The next day, he walked around the unit talking to himself, saying that EEG machine was communicating with him.
He was given antipsychotic medication and his hallucinations subsided two days later. He was released on medication five days later, a week later he recovered and returned to work.
Another case describes a 42-year-old man suffering from a horrific fraud that initiated on the day he got his Pfizer mRNA vaccine and a 57-year-healthy man who was admitted to the psychiatric emergency medical unit after he attempted suicide after three days of taking the vaccine.
Symptoms of dementia began the evening he received the vaccine, when he became irritable, sleepless, and began talking to himself and developed “nihilistic delusions”.
Living in Pure Hell
This phenomenon has also been reported in children. A report addressed to the U.S. Government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) describes a 13-year-old girl who developed “extremely elevated anxiety, nonstop worries and fears, irrational thoughts, OCD thoughts and behaviors” that materialized after Pfizer injection in June.
Another child, who had a tingling sensation in his limbs and sharp electric-like-jolts of pain in his brain, would lay under the blanket for hours, terrified of the world, having difficulty sleeping, tics, anger outbursts and often stared blankly.
He was later diagnosed with “autoimmune encephalitis” and could not take care of himself and now needed a full-time caregiver.
Other VAERS reports explain that the lives of young people are being ruined. One woman reported that her 28-year-old son was forced to get the vaccine by his employer and was hospitalized for two days after receiving his first dose of Pfizer.
After the shot he fell into “such a severe state of psychosis that he tried to jump out of my vehicle going 40 miles an hour.” She reported that they have been living in ““pure hell” since receiving the vaccine.
Psychosis ending in Suicide
A 48-year-old Tennessee woman who took the Pfizer vaccine said she had a psychotic episode on the same day.
“I literally thought I was going to drive myself and my nephew to Heaven… I left the house without a phone and drove all the way to where my vehicle ran out of gas. I was apprehended by the highway patrol and taken to the local hospital”.
The woman said she refused to eat, drink or sleep because of the paranoia of the thoughts that people were trying to kill her and had to stay in the hospital for two days. She was put to sleep under medication and woke up to be cured.
121,559 Psychiatric Disorders
World Health Organization’s global drug database of adverse drug events, VigiBase, lists 121,559 cases of psychiatric disorders following COVID vaccine administration. These include:
29,661 individuals reporting insomnia
18,377 reports of anxiety
13,904 reports of a “confusional state”
11,447 reports of sleep disorders
6,234 reports of “nervousness”
5,202 people reporting “disorientation”
4,463 reports of “acute stress disorder”
3,682 people who experienced “restlessness”
3,430 people reporting hallucinations
3,405 reports of depression
3,301 reports of “depressed mood”
2,814 “panic attacks”
2,444 people who experienced “poor quality sleep”
1,883 experiences of “delirium”
1,864 people reporting “agitation”
1,752 reports of nightmares
1,507 people who reported having “abnormal dreams”
606 eating disorders
365 cases of “psychotic disorder” or “acute psychosis” or “psychotic behavior”
226 instances of tic disorder
Some of the rare reports on VigiBase include 213 reports of near-death experience after vaccination, 57 suicides, and 25 cases of “exploding head syndrome” – a condition in which people hear loud noises such as explosions, gunshots or cymbals clanging as though it is right next to them, often making them as though they were sleepy or on the cusp of waking up; but it is not real.
British Yellow Card adverse event reporting data alone includes 26,916 psychiatric disorders following COVID vaccination.
Cytokine Storm can trigger Psychosis
“The virus that causes COVID (SARS-CoV-2) is known to trigger a powerful immune response, which includes the release of large amounts of proinflammatory cytokines,” noted New York researchers in their case report.
“It has been hypothesized that a COVID-19 triggered cytokine storm may increase the risk of psychosis.” They cited 42 reported cases of psychotic behavior following COVID infection. Similarly, schizophrenia has been linked to inflammation in the recent research. Vaccination, designed to trigger an inflammatory reaction, can also go wrong.
A 2018 study of 41 people of college age looking at some inflammatory markers before and after taking the vaccination found that 41 seniors in college after receiving influenza vaccine found that those with high levels of serum interleukin-6 (IL-6) after vaccination were prone to showing signs of severe depressive symptoms.
In a 2017 pilot study, researchers at Yale University School of Medicine and the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine reviewed vaccine records and found that children diagnosed with neuropsychiatric anorexia nervosa, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and tic nervous system, may have have been vaccinated more recently than controlled children.
“In this day and age, we are used to being able to go anywhere and be entertained. Even as adults, we struggle to deal with our downtime. We fantasize about being home for a whole week with nowhere to go and nothing to do but don’t know what to do when it happens’’ Nygaard wrote in “The Prepper’s Yearbook.”
According to Nygaard, panicking will only create more chaos and confusion.
“If you are in a quarantine whether it is self-quarantine or a mandated quarantine, you should plan to be home for a minimum of two weeks. Most people will only plan to be home for one week, but you should at least double that time. To be safe, I would plan for four weeks just to err on the side of caution. If you or your family ends up sick, you will need to be home for as long as it takes to recover and recoup,” she wrote.
Nygaard said one must try to make this time less stressful for everyone, remembering an ice storm that hit her hometown when she was eight years old.
“I remember my parents making the best of the situation. We had a wood stove that kept the living room and kitchen warm. We still ate good meals and we set up in the living room to sleep and hang out. Even though my brother and I ended up coming down with the chickenpox during that time too, we still had fun and played. If I remember right, the power was out for over a week.”
Attitude is everything when dealing with a situation like this. Everyone will need to keep their attitudes in check which will be difficult at times.
Must-do to keep your sanity when forced to stay at home
1. Make lists. You should be making lists of things to do inside your home. Cleaning lists, project lists and many other lists will help focus while you are unable to leave your home. Every morning (or every night before bed), you should be making a to-do list to keep your mind off the isolation and keep yourself productive.
2. Make a meal plan. You know exactly how much food you have in your home. If you don’t, you need to make an inventory. Just like having a list to plan out your day, you need to plan your meals to make this time a lot less stressful for you.
3. Give everyone assigned tasks to do. You will not be the only one struggling with your sudden free time. The people you live with will also be struggling. Make sure everyone has assigned chores to do every day and that they do them. If you have kids at home, keep the tasks age-appropriate. Keeping your home clean, tidy and uncluttered will be very important during this time.
4. Make sure you have things to do at home. Books, cards, board games, word puzzles, small projects, drawing supplies, dress-up clothes for the littles and more will help everyone entertain themselves much easier. While most kids and people can entertain themselves, having a few options or some new-to-them things to play with can definitely boost the morale around the house.
5. Stick to your routines and create some new ones. Routines are sanity savers. You should still be going to bed and waking up at the same time. You should still be taking a shower and getting ready for the day every day. Mealtimes and snacks should still be about the same time every day. By keeping daily life fairly normal for everyone, you can create a sense of normalcy that every one craves.
6. Make time for fun. If you can, set time aside every day for a fun time. If you can go outside in the yard, play a game or do something physical to burn off energy. If you can’t go outside, have a dance party inside or play hide and seek in the house. Doing something physical will help everyone’s mood in the house, as well as keep the morale up.
7. Play music throughout the day. The silence can be deafening and somewhat distracting, but yet you might not want the television on all day. Playing some music all day can be soothing. Even having a radio going can help give you some peacefulness.
8. Keep in contact with the outside world. Checking in with loved ones and keeping up with the world outside your home can certainly help your peace of mind. However, keep in mind the dangers of being on social too much. Getting bombarded with much information and misinformation can quickly lead to some destructive emotions like paranoia and fear.
9. Take notes during this time. Journaling through this time can be really beneficial for you. You can get your feelings down on paper and take notes of what happened when it happened. You can make notes of what is working and not working. You might be too distracted to remember what happened yesterday and keeping notes will definitely help you to remember. By doing this, you can give an accurate account of what happened to help someone else.
10. Give everyone some alone time, including yourself. While there are people who thrive on being around other people, most people need some alone time to recharge their batteries and to clear their minds. You also cannot be offended if someone asks to be left alone for a bit. That someone will be happier afterward, and you will be too.
Nygaard said that you can do other things to make home relaxing and calm. You can light candles or diffuse calming essential oils to keep the inside of your home a place that you want to be home for.
Keeping your home uncluttered and tidy will help give you some calm. Having food, water and a source of heat should be at the top of your list. Being prepared is the ultimate peace of mind, but we should also be thinking about the mental aspects of these situations.
Many bad things have happened because someone couldn’t handle themselves mentally or emotionally. Do not let that happen in your home.
New research from the American Heart Association (AHA) has been censored on Twitter because it exposes the serious health risks associated with Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines.”
A link to this study that was tweeted by someone named Marina Medvin now brings up a bizarre and false prompt from Twitter that reads: “Warning: this link may be unsafe.”
Users are then urged to click the “Back to previous page” button to avoid accessing the article, though there is also a tiny link at the bottom that says, “Ignore this warning and continue.”
The study was published in the AHA journal Circulation, and it clearly explains how mRNA (messenger RNA) Chinese Virus injections “dramatically increase endothelial inflammatory markers,” thus increasing the risk of acute coronary syndrome (ACS).
Mind you, this is an official study published by the AHA, which if it supported the jab narrative would be perfectly fine with Twitter’s censors. However, because it defies fake government “doctor” Tony Fauci’s guidelines for the plandemic, the study is no longer allowed on Twitter.
“The Journal of the American Heart Association puts out a study warning of the impact of mRNA Covid vaccines on the heart,” tweeted someone else in disgust. “Twitter reflexively applies a warning that the site may be unsafe. THE F’ING AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION?!?”
AHA issues “expression of concern” about study over “several typographical errors”
Because of these, the AHA issued an “expression of concern” about the study highlighting these “several typographical errors.” The organization also now claims that there is “no data in the abstract regarding myocardial T-cell infiltration” or “statistical analyses for significant provided.”
Twitter jumped all over this and took the opportunity to further claim erroneously that the study itself is “potentially spammy or unsafe” and could contain “malicious links that could steal personal information or harm electronic devices.”
Twitter further insisted that the study could “mislead people or disrupt their experience” because it supposedly contains “violent or misleading content that could lead to real-world harm.”
“[C]ertain categories of content that, if posted directly to Twitter, are a violation of the Twitter Rules” was also slapped across the study link to try to deter users from viewing it.
Which of these Twitter believes apply to the Circulation study remains unclear, though it is possible that employees at the social media giant consider all of them to be applicable to its contents.
“A warning by Twitter is usually a warning to us to take heed of what has been tweeted,” noted one commenter at Zero Hedge.
“A warning by Twitter is usually a warning to just get the **** off Twitter,” responded another.
Another joked that surely Twitter must know more than the AHA about cardiology, seeing as how it is the self-aggrandizing expert in everything.
“The question that people should be asking about this and similar acts of blatant censorship by Twitter is why would it be necessary to censor medical facts which conflict with the official narrative IF said narrative holds water?” this same commenter added.
Yet another pointed out that the so-called “vaccines” for the Fauci Flu are clearly far more dangerous than any alleged virus, assuming one even exists.
“If they say that it is true, it is probably false,” wrote another about Twitter’s “standards.” “If they say that it is false, then it is probably true.”
Vaccines have long been considered the holy grail of medicine in the United States, because they were sold that way. In a capitalistic country built on advertising and marketing of goods, services and medications, the majority of Americans believe everything they hear on television, read online, and see in magazines and newspapers. They think it’s all real, all legitimate and approved for use or consumption by someone official somewhere. Yet, most products and medicines pushed by the media and the government are adulterated and toxic for the human body, especially vaccines.
What’s worse is that adulterated vaccines cause horrific side effects and adverse events that are often permanent, including death. Now, those detrimental health damages are being covered up, not just after they happen, but during clinical trials.
In fact, newly uncovered Pfizer documents reveal TENS OF THOUSANDS of adverse reactions that were reported way back in January and February of 2021, nearly a year ago. The documents turned up after a plaintiff group of professors/scientists filed for a Freedom of Information Act request. This is often the only way the public ever finds out about these pharma criminals and mass murderers’ plots and ploys to hoodwink the masses with toxic vaccines.
Who can ever trust pharma criminals that are repeat offenders, year in, year out?
How can anyone ever trust anyone who works for Pfizer, Moderna, J&J, Merck or any of the vaccine-making gangsters, who function like repeat offenders who should all be in prison serving hard time? There is a total lack of transparency in the most important realm of medicine where we’re supposed to be beating back a pandemic. This surely won’t “flatten the curve” or snuff the spread of Covid. Doctors and nurses across America are being misinformed with disinformation and improperly educated to pass on false information to their patients that recklessly endangers their lives with gene therapy injections that kill (and maim for life) more people than they save.
Within just a few months of distribution, executives and scientists at Pfizer KNEW about more than 50,000 serious adverse reactions caused by their Covid vaccine that were reported in the first couple months, and they told nobody.
Pfizer admits in SECRET to FDA that mRNA Covid vaccines can cause “enhanced disease” which intensifies the pandemic
In a smoking gun document, Pfizer confessed to the FDA under the heading “Safety Concerns” that mRNA jabs can cause “Vaccine-Associated Enhanced Disease” (VAED) which can be a respiratory infection/dysfunction also. Imagine that. The Covid virus is a respiratory infection from a virus genetically altered by humans in a laboratory, and the vaccine for that virus infection CAUSES the human respiratory system to suffer an enhanced respiratory disease. Talk about pouring gasoline on a fire.
So the FDA knew this, Pfizer knew this, and STILL they were granted “Emergency Use Approval” to further infect millions Americans without them ever knowing a thing.
The secret document also revealed over 1200 deaths and over 42,000 adverse reports totaling nearly 160,000 adverse reactions from the Pfizer mRNA jab. This puts them on the chopping block liable for millions of dollars in damages to every patient they lied to that got hurt or killed (including every man, woman, child, infant or pregnancy terminated).
General disorders and nervous system disorders top the chart for these known adverse reactions. Plus, three times the women get affected than men, for some unknown reason (population control). Is this vaccine designed for gender-specific damage in order to reduce the population? Pfizer and the FDA certainly knew about it. So here they come –the top 8 most common and SERIOUS adverse reactions to Covid vaccines:
In the latest bid to discredit any blame for Covid vaccines causing serious and life-threatening injuries, authors now claim in a JAMA opinion piece that the China Flu jabs may be causing a neuropsychiatric disorder called FND (Functional Neurological Disorder). The FND theory would explain why perfectly healthy people get the Fauci flu shot and then can’t walk right anymore and have severe muscle spasms all day, including tremors and facial spasms.
In other words, it’s all in their heads, these vaccine injury “victims” and it’s a disorder that the authors of the paper say can be treated by health care professionals having conversations with parents to help them understand their child has a mental disorder all of a sudden, and it’s not caused by the vaccine.
The so-called “bio-psychosocial” disorder can be treated with “education, physical rehabilitation, and psychotherapy” – because getting vaccinated is an “emotional” event, much like a head injury or surgery, according to the FND researchers. It’s all published in the latest JAMA Neurology Viewpoint, because that’s all it is, is a viewpoint.
Vaccine injuries are “too complicated” for doctors to explain to common folk, so just blame the injured
These injured people, who were mostly perfectly healthy before getting a spike protein, gene-therapy jab or two (or three), are somehow now faking serious physical handicaps due to mental manifestations based on psychosocial phenomena, because why? The vaccine damage is physical. Thousands of cases of myocarditis, neurological impairments, blood clots and sudden “unexplainable” deaths are happening shortly after these Covid injections, and it looks like pharma shills are coming up with just about any excuse to deflect the blame away from the toxic jabs.
Perez, among others, is suggesting that the vaccine is either quite dangerous to produce, or that people in social media videos are faking their symptoms, which include having convulsions and difficulty walking. This, psychiatrist David Perez proposes, could influence millions of people watching to blame the vaccines. Should they?
Thought-based disorder: Vaccines are NOT to blame and the victims are NOT faking it, according to the director of FND Unit at Massachusetts GeneralHospital
According to neurological disorder “experts,” the Covid-19 vaccines may “precipitate the development” of FND, the neuropsychiatric disorder that mentally causes people to lose control of their limbs, have gait problems, jerky movements, facial spasms and tremors. In other words, it’s all mental from the scare of getting the gene therapy injections, but physical symptoms are more or less an end result of the psychological trauma.
Perez goes on to explain FND and how the victims may be making the pandemic worse. “The spread of these videos could fuel vaccine hesitancy by giving an overly simplistic impression of potential links between the vaccine and major neurological symptoms.” Wait, there’s more. He claims, “Instead, these are symptoms of a real, brain-based disorder that sits at the intersection of neurology and psychiatry.” It’s a brain-based disorder and none of the symptoms are directly caused by vaccines, is the message here.
If you or a loved one are suffering psychological damage from the fear of vaccines, then FND could be your problem. You may need some “re-education” at a Covid concentration camp where other people also fear the Covid vaccine so much that they can’t walk anymore after they get it, and have no faculty over the movement of their limbs. There is hope. Your best bet is to avoid the clot shots like the plague, because fear of the “shot” seems to cause a lot less damage than the actual prion injections themselves.
Data suggest 1 in 317 boys aged 16 to 17 will get myocarditis from the COVID shots, and after a third booster, that number may be even higher
VAERS reporting is likely underreported by a factor of 41. Since there are over 8,000 domestic deaths reported to VAERS, and 98% of those deaths are “excess deaths,” this suggests that as many as 300,000 Americans may have died from the COVID shots thus far
Calculations based on government data from 35% of the world’s population suggest we’re killing approximately 411 people per million doses on average. Moderna and Pfizer are both two-dose regimens, which pushes this to 822 deaths per million fully vaccinated. And that’s just the short-term mortality. We still have no concept of how these shots might impact mortality and morbidity in the longer term
An Italian investigation found that if the COVID mortality definition were changed to only include those cases where there were no preexisting comorbidities, the mortality from COVID comes out to just 2.9% of the overall reported number. This suggests that if a COVID death was redefined to being a death actually “from” COVID rather than “with” COVID, the death count could be substantially smaller than 760,000 deaths and may be smaller than the number killed by the vaccines
The deadliest vaccine ever made is the smallpox vaccine, which killed 1 in 1 million vaccinated people. The COVID shots kills 822 per million fully vaccinated, making it more than 800 times deadlier than the deadliest vaccine in human history
In this interview, Steve Kirsch, executive director of the COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund, reviews some of the COVID jab data he’s presented to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention during various meetings.
For example, during the September 17, 2021, FDA VRBPAC (Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee) meeting,1 Kirsch cited data suggesting 1 in 317 boys aged 16 to 17 will get myocarditis from the shots, and after a third booster, that number may be even higher. He also cited data showing the Pfizer shot kills far more people than it saves. I’ll provide more details about that below.
Kirsch didn’t come into this due to some preconceived opinion about vaccines. He and his family have all received two doses of the COVID jab. It wasn’t until after the fact that he started hearing about problems from others that he started taking deep dives into the data. He explains:
“After I got vaccinated, a woman asked me, ‘Should I get vaccinated?’ And I said, ‘Of course, you should. This is the safest thing ever. Nobody’s died and there are no side effects. You’ve got to get this modern technology.’ I’m singing from the hymn book.
And then she said something that threw me off course because I said, ‘Why are you asking such a stupid question?’ And she said, ‘Well, three of my relatives got the vaccine and they died within a week.’ I said, ‘No, no, that can’t be true. There’s no way that can happen.’
I’m trying to convince her that she’s mistaken, that it must have been something else. I wrote her saying, ‘Statistically, you can’t have three people dying from the vaccine, which doesn’t kill anyone.’ And she wrote back and she said, ‘Yeah, but they’re dead.’
That was a game-changing moment for me … but I was still in denial … I was operating [from the position] that the FDA is still operating the same [conservative] way [they used to before], but they’re not … nor did I understand that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now mission driven, and the mission is to get a needle in every arm. My trust was in the agencies.
The next incident involved my carpet cleaner, Tim Damroth. He showed up wearing a mask. And I’m saying, ‘Hey, you should all get vaccinated. Once you get vaccinated you don’t have to wear a mask.’ And he said, ‘Well, I did get vaccinated, but I had an extreme reaction. I had a heart attack two minutes after I got injected.’ He also described that his wife had [developed] Parkinson’s-like symptoms. Her left hand was shaking uncontrollably.”
The Price Truth-Tellers Pay
The data are ultimately what convinced him that people must be told the truth about these shots because, without that, they cannot give informed consent. He’s sacrificed a lot to do just that, including professional relationships and millions of dollars in lost income.
“I basically put my life on hold and started looking in the various databases and talking to people to understand what was going on,” Kirsch says. “And every place I looked, [the truth] became more clear to me. And so, on May 25, 2021, I wrote this 250-page article for TrialSiteNews. It may be the longest article for TrialSiteNews ever published.
When I wrote that article, within a week, every member of my [COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund’s] scientific advisory board quit — there were 14 scientists from all over the United States and in different fields with different expertise. They said I was ‘an evil person’ and that they never wanted to talk to me again in their life.
I pleaded with them, saying, ‘Look, if I’ve got the analysis wrong, then tell why can’t you tell me where I got it wrong.’ And they wouldn’t say anything. They just said, the vaccines are safe and I should be ashamed of myself.”
Kirsch also created and submitted a 177-page PDF slideshow to the October 26, 2021, VRBPAC hearing, titled, “Questions About the COVID Vaccine.”2 It’s an absolute treasure trove of information and I would encourage you to review this great resource that he is updating in real time.
VAERS Data Likely Off by Factor of 41
In his video, “Vaccine Secrets: COVID Crisis,”3 the first episode of “The False Narrative Takedown Series,” Kirsch explains how to estimate COVID jab mortality, which he and a team of statisticians have done based on a variety of sources, including but not limited to the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS).
Kirsch estimates VAERS reporting is off by a factor of 41, and that anywhere from 150,000 to 300,000 Americans have died from the COVID shots.
“We looked at eight different ways and VAERS is just one of the ways. So, when people say, ‘You can’t use VAERS for this, you can’t [calculate] causality [based on VAERS data], I’m saying, ‘Fine. We got the same answer using seven other ways.
In the VAERS analysis, we determined that VAERS was under-reported by a factor of 41, which is quite reasonable … Ten years ago we had a system where we could actually discover all the unreported things in VAERS, and they discovered VAERS was severely underreported by as much as 95 times. Vaccines that we thought were safe, they’re not safe at all. So, what did they do? They killed the project.
So, the reason that we have such a bad system today is that it is intentional. If we had a good system, it would show all the flaws for all of these vaccines that we’ve been giving people.”
The system is clearly intentionally designed from a technical standpoint to radically decrease the number of cases entered. It takes more than 30 minutes to complete a single report and you can’t save it until completed, so if you walk away and get timed-out, you have to start all over.
Kirsch knows a neurologist in California who claims to have 2,000 COVID jab-injured patients (out of a client base of 20,000), but she’s only filed two reports to VAERS. She doesn’t have time for the rest. So, she’s under-reporting by a factor of 1,000. Also, while doctors are required by law to file adverse event reports, there’s no enforcement, and no punishment for not filing.
It is also important to note that no one is paid to enter this data. That could be a part time job for most clinicians, were they to responsibly report all the side effects and deaths.
COVID Shots Are Far Deadlier Than the Infection
Overall, his team’s calculations suggest we’re killing 411 people per million doses (and remember Moderna and Pfizer are both two-dose regimens), worldwide. And that’s just the short-term mortality. We still have no concept of how these shots might impact mortality in the longer term.
To put things into further perspective, October 21, 2021, an Italian investigation found that by changing the COVID mortality definition to only include cases where COVID-19 was the primary cause of death and there were no comorbidities decreased the death toll by 97%, from 130,000 to fewer than 4,000.
Kirsch believes the real death tally from COVID-19 in the U.S. may be about 50% of the reported number. This means about 380,000 Americans died from COVID-19 (rather than with COVID), whereas the COVID “vaccine” has killed as many as 300,000. In other words, it’s possible that the cure may be worse than the disease.
COVID Shot Is the Deadliest ‘Vaccine’ Ever Created
It gets even worse though. In Pfizer’s children’s trial, one of the participants, 12-year-old Maddie De Garay, suffered a number of devastating events, including paralysis. This side effect was misreported, however, and put down as “abdominal pain.” Neither the FDA nor the CDC has investigated the case, despite promising to do so. Pfizer has refused to investigate it as well.
These COVID vaccines are over 800 times deadlier than the deadliest vaccine in human history. So, this isn’t a close call. These vaccines are the deadliest vaccines ever created by man. And they’re promoted as safe and effective. ~ Steve Kirsch
In the youth trial, 1 out of 1,131 children was paralyzed. Meanwhile, Pfizer’s adult trial shows that the shot saves one COVID death for every 22,000 fully-vaccinated people. But for children, it’s estimated we need to fully vaccinate over 630,000 kids to save one life. That means we may permanently disable as many as 557 kids per life saved. Meanwhile, there’s not a single report of a healthy child dying from SARS-CoV-2 infection anywhere in the world.
This means the number needed to vaccinate to save one otherwise healthy child from COVID death is actually infinite, as they’re not dying from COVID to begin with. There simply is no doubt that in children, the COVID shot is no benefit and all risk. Kirsch notes:
“Dr. Paul Offit was interviewed 20 years ago on ‘CBS 60 Minutes,’ and he said the smallpox vaccine is so dangerous that we would never consider doing that in modern times. It’s the most dangerous vaccine ever invented … and the smallpox vaccines only kills one person per every million-people vaccinated, which is a lot.
You vaccinate 300 million people, you’re going to kill 300 people. That is unacceptable according to Offit, but he just voted for a vaccine that kills 822 people per million fully vaccinated [assuming a two-dose regimen].
That means these COVID vaccines are over 800 times deadlier than the deadliest vaccine in human history. So, this isn’t a close call. These vaccines are the deadliest vaccines ever created by man. And they’re promoted as safe and effective.”
COVID Shot Gets Deadlier the Younger You Are
Based on a request from Dr. Peter McCullough, Kirsch also analyzed COVID jab mortality based on age using the VAERS data. For 80-year-olds, he found we kill two people to save one. For 20-year-olds, we kill six to save one.
The younger you are, the greater the risk. The Kostoff analysis4 found this general pattern as well. Ronald N. Kostoff is a research affiliate in Gainesville, Virginia, who in 2016 wrote an expert review on under-reporting of adverse events in the biomedical literature.5
In a review published in October 2021, Kostoff found five elderly are killed by the shots for each elderly person saved, and the ratios get worse as you go down in age. That said, “the vaccines don’t make sense for any age group, which is exactly the same thing I found independently,” Kirsch says.
“Nobody should get these vaccines. There is no cost-benefit analysis that I have seen that shows it is beneficial … I mean, you’re not going to take an intervention that is just as likely to kill you as to save you.
You want to take an intervention which is at least 10 times more likely to save you than to kill you, because it’s an optional intervention. What kind of business do you have taking an intervention which has a marginal benefit for a completely unknown short- and long-term risk profile?
The other thing I want to say is that, the societal benefit argument, people are saying, ‘You’re selfish because you didn’t get vaccinated.’ Well, that’s irrational.
Have you ever seen a CDC analysis showing you the societal benefit of being vaccinated? It doesn’t exist. And there’s a reason it doesn’t exist, because the societal benefit would be so tiny that it’s ludicrous. Today, we know the vaccinated are as likely to spread the virus as the unvaccinated. So where is the societal benefit?
If there are no downsides [to the shot], then people would say, sure, maybe there’s some societal benefit. I’ll do that. But here your life is at stake and the data show that roughly 1 in 1,000 will get killed by these vaccines. So, if I say, hey, suppose sacrificing your life could save 100 person years (e.g., 10 people given another 10 years of life).
When I asked this live in a clubhouse room with a few hundred people, nobody raised their hand to volunteer to do that — to sacrifice their life to save 100 person years. And I said, ‘OK, what about 1,000 person years? If you could sacrifice your life to save people 1,000 person years, would you do it? Nobody would do that. It’s nonsensical.
We have a constitutional right to life … And I don’t think you’re being selfish about it. You have a family, you have friends, you have loved ones, you have people you interact with … Why would I ask you to sacrifice your life? To save people you don’t know?
Everybody has their own special way that they contribute to society. Why would we ever ask somebody to [sacrifice their life for a potential social benefit]? Maybe we should ask Joe Biden, ‘Joe, if you could give up your life to save 1,000 person-years, would you do that?’ It would be very interesting to see what he says.”
CDC Performs Statistical Magic, Again
Countering all of this data we have a recent CDC analysis,6 which concluded that people who get the COVID shot are two-thirds less likely to die of any cause.
“I sent Janet Woodcock my deck of 180 questions. I said, ‘Janet, I bet you can’t answer any of these 180 questions. Doesn’t this concern you?’ She sends back an email saying, ‘Look at the CDC analysis, showing that after you get the jab, there’s this two-thirds drop in mortality.’
My friends and I, when we saw in that paper, we were laughing our heads off over here. The stats on 18- to 44-year-olds [show] 35% die from accidents. The rest die from disease — cancer, heart disease, whatever.
The only way to get a two-thirds reduction [in all-cause mortality] is if nobody dies from anything anymore — any disease — and we also reduce the number of accidents that they have … This is the immortality drug. All kidding aside, there’s no mechanism of action that could possibly justify that people are going to be better off from a health perspective after getting these vaccinations. Zero.
Nothing is improved. You are not immortal. You are just the opposite; your immune system is compromised. You’re also more likely to get COVID. In the U.K., the government numbers show that 40-year-olds, after the honeymoon period is over, were more than twice as likely to get infected if they were vaccinated.
In the U.S., you have hospitals where you have a 50% community vaccination rate and the hospital admissions are 90% vaccinated people. You can’t make these statistics up.
In fact, the CDC was confronted by these statistics by Aaron Siri, who wrote about it on his substack, and they just ignored them. So, they make up stuff [and] this paper shows the CDC can put out anything and as long as it has that little CDC logo on it, people are going to believe it no matter how ridiculous it is.
And nobody in the medical community criticized it. I wrote a very popular article about it on my substack entitled, ‘FDA Discovers Fountain of Youth.’”
Biggest Fraud in History
All things considered, the COVID vaccination campaign is the biggest medical fraud in modern history. As Kirsch says, it’s a house of cards, held together by belief in data that aren’t there and avoidance of confronting the safety signals in the VAERS system and other studies that don’t comport with the narrative.
They even avoided the determination of one of the world’s top pathologists (Peter Schirmacher) that at least 30% to 40% of the deaths two weeks post-vaccine were caused by the vaccine. The still claim there are no deaths that have been attributed to the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. That’s ridiculous.
“I’ve never seen anything like this, and I’ve never heard of anything like this because the conspirators who are telling this false narrative are all the three-letter agencies under the Department of Health and Human Services — the FDA, CDC and NIH.
They’re all in on it, Congress is all in on it, mainstream media’s all in on it, and the medical community is all in on it. They can’t afford to back down now because they are in it too deep. It would be too embarrassing to them.
We have been saying for months, ‘You guys have to look at the VAERS data,’ and they have been ignoring and censoring us rather than engaging us with dialogue — and none of these people will engage us in dialogue.
We tell the so-called ‘fact checkers’ where to look and what questions to ask the CDC to verify our stories and they never follow up. The ‘fact checkers’ all refuse to get on a recorded phone or Zoom call since they don’t want to be exposed as being biased.
One strategy for changing this is that we’re going to run a series of ads. Each of the ads will feature a unique personality, like a Dr. Peter McCullough, a sports figure, doctors, victims and so on. They’ll relate their personal anecdotes for what’s happened to them. And they will say, ‘Look, before you get vaccinated, check the facts. Listen to the other side of the story.’
It’s a reasonable ask. And we’ll direct them where to go to hear the side of the story that the mainstream media aren’t allowing them to hear. And then we let them make up their own mind. People aren’t hearing the other side of the story, and the White House is helping suppress it. When the White House has a hit list of censorship, it’s very clear what is going on. When in history have we done that?
Do you ever see McCullough on CNN? No, because they want to give you only one side and they’re deliberately giving you only one side of it, and they know it. If they want to give the impression they are balanced, they’ll pick someone who isn’t an expert and interview them. Robert Malone is never going to be on CNN. Malone invented the mRNA vaccine and yet he doesn’t qualify to talk about it on CNN?
America used to be a country that embraced a diversity of views, and you had freedom of speech, you had freedom to express your opinion. You had the freedom to tell the truth. No more. That freedom has been taken away.
If you don’t agree with the mainstream narrative, you’re silenced. And so, what we’re going to do is run the series of ads, and we’ll only be able to run it on alternate media because the mainstream media won’t run our ads because the ads encourage people to hear the other side of the issue.”
Again, you can download Kirsch’s 177-page PDF, jam-packed with questions and data on the COVID “vaccine.” I also urge you to review his “False Narrative Takedown” (TFNT) series, which you can find on his Rumble channel.
You can also peruse his website, skirsch.io, or follow him on his social media accounts, which include Twitter, Gab, Telegram and LinkedIn. To keep on top of his latest investigations, you can subscribe to his Substack channel. If you can afford it, consider signing up for a paid subscription. Select articles can also be found on TrialSiteNews.
“Substack is really important because they don’t censor people who tell the truth,” Kirsch says. “So, I really encourage people to support platforms like Substack. I also get a portion of that, and any money I get, I will donate 100% to funding ads and to fighting this. If we can get 100,000 subscribers at $5 a month, that’s $500,000 a month we can spend to combat false narrative. That’s serious fire power.
People ask me, why am I doing this? I’m not making any money off of this. I have no conflicts of interest. I have no history as a conspiracy theorist or spreader of misinformation. We’ve lost all our friends.I was forced out of my job because I wanted to speak out against the vaccines.
I’m losing money on this because I’m funding a lot of the things out of my personal pocketbook. The donors that donated to the early treatment fund, none of them, not a single one, is supporting the effort to get the truth out about how dangerous these vaccines are and how wrong the mandates are.
My motivation is a 100% on saving lives. That’s my reward in life. If I can save one life, my life was worth living. If I can save 100 lives, even better. If I can save 100,000 lives, that is more meaningful than anything I’ve ever done or will do.”
The European Union is considering a nine-month expiration date on its Covid-19 vaccine certificates, which allow tourists certain freedoms to travel while the coronavirus pandemic continues
Although we don’t know yet, vaccine certificates may need a booster shot to remain up to date.
Why are governments allowed to roll out such measures against the will of so many people?
If vaccines don’t stop the spread of COVID, why are mandates being forced upon people?
The European Union is currently contemplating a nine-month expiration date on its COVID-19 vaccine “certificates.” The certificates currently allow tourists specific freedoms to travel during COVID. Multiple countries have implemented vaccine passport systems in order for their own citizenry to access certain rights and freedoms they were able to access prior to the pandemic.
The executive arm of the EU, The European Commission, proposed on Nov. 25th, 2021 that the EU COVID certificate should be updated due to the fact that immunity provided by the vaccines from severe COVID and death wanes.
Thursday’s recommendation from the European Commission did not yet address booster shots. The commission said that,
It can reasonably be expected that protection from booster vaccinations may last longer than that resulting from the primary vaccination series.”
As such, a new expiration date could be announced in a couple of week’s time to include the advice for booster shots.
Updating vaccine passports to require a third dose has already happened in Israel. Israel’s coronavirus czar, Dr. Salman Zarka, has expressed that Israeli citizens will need a 4th dose of a coronavirus vaccine.
In the foreseeable future it’s most likely that booster shots will be required to update vaccine passports in multiple countries. Then as immunity wanes from the booster shot, it may be announced that a yearly shot is required, or perhaps one shot every 9 months or so in order to keep your passport updated.
Dr. Ozlem Tureci, co-founder and CMO of BioNTech who developed a COVID vaccine with Pfizer, told CNBC that she expects people will need a third shot of its two-dose COVID-19 vaccine. She also said that she expects people will need to be vaccinated against the coronavirus every single year similar to the seasonal flu.
What’s not being relayed to the citizenry via mainstream media are the number of people who oppose these measures. Some of the largest protests in history have taken place around the world during this pandemic and they have not been televised.
Do we really live in a democracy when so many voices go unheard and unacknowledged? Should we give governments the authority to mandate such measures on the citizenry?
Mandating COVID vaccines when they do not stop transmission and only protect the individual from severe COVID and death for a short period of time doesn’t make sense to many people. This calls into question the idea that you are protecting another person by getting vaccinated.
Furthermore, given all of the serious vaccine injuries reported as a result of COVID products, many people are having a hard time making sense of vaccine mandates.
By October 15th, 2021, adverse events reported worldwide passed 2,344,240 for COVID vaccines alone in the World Health Organization (WHO) reporting system VigiAccess. As of October 15, 2021, VAERS recorded 122,833 serious adverse events, of those 17,128 resulted in death, post administration of COVID vaccines. Previously confidential Pfizer documents have been released by the FDA revealing that there were tens of thousands of adverse reactions reported worldwide from Pfizer’s COVID vaccines within the first two months of 2021.
A man in Italy worse a fake arm to a vaccine appointment in order to avoid the jab but get a vaccine pass.
The nurse reported the man to the police.
A local politician made a statement about the incident that runs contrary to the science around the spread of COVID.
Why does public policy continually fly contrary to COVID science?
Is this man really in the wrong when vaccines don’t stop the spread of COVID nor the vaccinated from being infected?
A 57 year old Italian man showed up to his vaccine appointment with a fake arm covering his real arm in an attempt to obtain his COVID vaccine certificate without getting the jab.
The nurse administering his shot was not fooled by the fake arm and reported him to police. The nurse told local media outlet la Repubblica that the arm’s skin was “rubbery and cold” and the pigment was “too light”.
After being discovered, the man attempted to get the nurse to let him go but to no avail.
Since August of 2021, Italians have needed a Covid “green pass”, which provides them proof of vaccination status, negative COVID test, or recovery from COVID, in order to enter train stations, cinemas, restaurants, gyms and swimming pools.
On Dec. 6th, 2021, rules are changing however. A ‘super green pass’ is being introduced that only allows those who are vaccinated or who recover from COVID access to these places.
Following the ‘fake arm’ incident, head of the Piedmont regional government, Albert Cirio said on Facebook,
[the ploy was] “unacceptable faced with the sacrifice that our entire community has paid during the pandemic, in terms of human lives, the social and economic cost”.
COVID vaccination offers personal protection, not protection to others. Vaccinated individuals still carry a viral load as high as the unvaccinated. COVID vaccines do not stop spread or infection of COVID, but may help reduce it. This is why we are seeing large outbreaks in highly vaccinated populations.
In fact, of the top five counties that have the highest percentage of population fully vaccinated (99.9–84.3%), the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identifies four of them as “high” transmission counties.
This essentially means that one person getting vaccinated against COVID does not protect another person. We also see this in how Omicron spread throughout the world: via vaccinated people who had the ability to travel while the unvaccinated have been grounded.
One of the largest public health perceptual challenge that exists today is that it is automatically assumed unvaccinated people are somehow sick and harbor COVID, and that vaccinated people are free and clear. This is simply false. Vaccination only offers temporary protection against severe disease.
Look at Ontario, Canada’s largest province, who recently updated holiday messaging on its website as it pertains to gatherings. The website reads,
“do not exceed the indoor social gathering limit of 25 people. […] Wear a face covering and physically distance if individuals in attendance are unvaccinated, partially vaccinated or their vaccination status is unknown”
Government of Ontario
Why are the unvaccinated assumed dangerous? Why are the vaccinated assumed non transmissible? This messaging is contrary to science and reality and puts a false narrative into the public consciousness that not only suggests unvaccinated people are dangerous but that the vaccinated are somehow not getting and spreading COVID.
The implications of such policy informs media rhetoric and political rhetoric that creates further tension and divide in society. All while coercive measures are used by government to get more people vaccinated.
In the case of this Italian man, and like many others around the world, they feel unheard and unacknowledged in maintaining their freedom of choice when taking a medical intervention that is no more than a tool of symptom management. Never in the history of our world has a symptom management pharmaceutical product been made mandatory for all citizens so they can participate in society.
A healthy mom and grandma died after getting her second dose of Moderna’s mRNA COVID-19 shot.
The side effects began with chills, body aches, fever and fatigue — all expected adverse events — but two days later her family found her dead in her bed.
Now, a coroner is involved — and family members say they’ve gotten the impression from talking to authorities that their loved one’s case isn’t all that unusual. Still, health authorities insist the shots are safe.
A Texas resident has received medical bills amounting to more than $4,000 after getting tested for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).
Jaden Janak got tested for COVID-19 following the death of his 75-year-old grandmother from the disease last year. He went to Tulsa ER & Hospital to avail of a rapid COVID-19 test, which he first assumed was free of charge. Under most circumstances, medical insurance often covers COVID-19 testing fees.
Janak received an unpleasant surprise when he received two medical bills totaling over $4,000. The first bill amounting to about $2,700 covered emergency room and laboratory fees. Meanwhile, the second bill charged him about $1,300 for doctor’s fees.
He told CBS News correspondent Anna Werner: “I felt very angry. I felt deceived. What if this happens to someone else, and they do truly believe that they are personally liable for these charges? How are they going to be able to make ends meet, given where the economy is?”
South Carolina couple Barry and Jamie Constanzo also experienced the issue back in September. They were planning to visit their grandchildren when they developed what they initially thought as COVID-19 symptoms. The Constanzos went to Conway Medical Center, the only location with rapid COVID-19 tests at the time.
While they tested negative for SARS-CoV-2, they received a $570 joint bill. The Constanzos were originally charged $771 each for an emergency room fee, but the insurer refused to pay the fees in full. Thus, the couple is now appealing their bill.
Barry Constanzo said: “They tell you you’re negative, then they ask you why you’re here – and then they look in your ears, nose and mouth. The next thing you know – you get a bill, non-COVID related.”
His wife Jamie Constanzo said: “Why would I go to a hospital or to any testing site for COVID if I was there for allergies?” Given what happened, she advised people wanting to get a COVID test to head over to a pharmacy instead of a hospital. (Related: More foolish examples of widespread COVID-19 testing.)
Hospitals, medical insurers respond to the complaints
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBS), Janak’s insurance provider, issued a first check for the bills. However, a second check sent to him never arrived. This left Janak fighting the hospital bill and getting collection calls for almost a year. BCBS later said that the second check would be reissued to him.
Meanwhile, Tulsa ER & Hospital told CBS News it will accept whatever payment BCBS sends to Janak and once they get it, he will no longer have any arrears. Hospital officials added that they have since changed the process with BCBS so patients like Janak are no longer in the middle. Payments now go directly to the hospital under the new scheme.
BlueChoice HealthPlan of South Carolina, the Constanzos’ insurance provider, did not respond to repeated requests for comment.
Meanwhile, Conway said the couple should have gone to the free drive-through COVID-19 testing if they wanted to get tested without paying. “Conway Medical Center has free COVID-19 drive-through testing offered seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. If a patient comes to our emergency department requesting just COVID-19 testing, they are referred to the free drive-through testing,” hospital officials told CBS News.
According to the hospital, the Constanzos went to the wrong place – the emergency department triage tent. Since they were technically at the emergency room, the hospital said it was “legally bound to medically evaluate, treat and discharge them.” Conway treated the Constanzos for allergies, something the couple did not ask for.
COVID-19 testing is a scam
It appears that the COVID-19 test Janak and the Constanzo couple sought and were billed for is a scam, as revealed by an internal document from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Based on the document, the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test utilized a mix of human and cold virus cells. This mix was used “since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV were available at the time the test was developed.”
However, the document warned that pooling RT-PCR samples together “has the potential to decrease sensitivity” as the specimens become diluted. This would result in “a low concentration of viral genetic material below the limit of detection of a given test.” RT-PCR tests have been dubbed the “gold standard” for COVID-19 testing.
The CDC announced in July that it would withdraw its emergency use authorization request for the RT-PCR test. It also called on testing laboratories to utilize another FDA-authorized test to determine COVID-19 infection.
“CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. Such assays can facilitate continued testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save both time and resources as we head into influenza season.”
Deaths among children have risen in the U.K. since they began vaccinating teenagers aged 12 and older against COVID-19, and while vaccine defenders will likely insist it’s a coincidence, parents have a right to know what is happening so they can draw their own conclusions.
The U.K. National Health Service, the NHS, rolled out the coronavirus vaccine for people aged 12 to 15 on September 20, and nearly three million children received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine shortly thereafter.
The vaccine rollout began on the 30th week of the year. A look at data from the UK’s Office of National Statistics indicates that the number of deaths in children aged 10 to 14 between weeks 38 and 41 of this year were 62 percent greater than the five-year average of deaths in the same age group during the same period of time. In addition, the rise began just as children started getting the jab.
RAIR Foundation USA also notes that during the 43rd week of this year, more children aged 5 to 14 died than usual, and the U.K. Health Security Agency reported that the number of children who died at the end of October this year was so great that it was considered excess mortality.
The vaccination campaign began despite the U.K.’s Joint Committee On Vaccination And Immunisation stating in the past that they did not support the universal vaccination of children. The reason given for moving ahead was the the belief that it might “help prevent outbreaks in classrooms and further disruptions to education this winter.”
While it could be a coincidence that deaths have climbed by 62 percent against the five-year average in this time – and up to 400 percent in vulnerable children – it’s hard to deny that the vaccines likely played a role, particularly when you take into account the fact that a 37-page fact sheet that was published by Pfizer on the safety of its vaccine notes that 79 percent of vaccinated children aged older than 12 can expect side effects.
The news is particularly disheartening when you consider that healthy children and teenagers have such a low risk of getting sick with coronavirus in the first place. In 20 months, just 1 out of every 1.1 million children without pre-existing conditions died of the virus, while 1 out of every 312,000 with pre-existing conditions died from it.
On top of that, the vaccines have not been terribly effective in the U.K. More data published by Public Health England shows that 71 percent of the UK’s Delta coronavirus deaths recorded between February 1st and September 12th of this year were vaccinated.
Thousands of serious adverse events reported following COVID-19 vaccination in children
A study by U.S. researchers found that healthy boys may have a greater likelihood of being admitted to the hospital with heart inflammation caused by the currently available COVID-19 vaccines than with coronavirus itself. In particular, they found that boys between the ages of 12 and 15 without underlying health conditions were 4 to 6 times more likely to develop vaccine-related myocarditis than to end up in the hospital with covid during a four-month period. Most children who experience this side effect are getting it within days of their second dose of the Pfizer and Moderna jabs; 86 percent of the boys affected needed hospital care.
An analysis of reports from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) in the U.S. by Children’s Health Defense found that there were more than 17,000 adverse events among 12- to 17-year-olds linked to covid vaccines, including 1,018 serious events and 18 deaths, in data published August 13.
They included a 15-year-old boy who had been vaccinated despite previously having COVID-19. He was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy and died four days after getting his second dose of the Pfizer jab. A 13-year-old girl, meanwhile, died after experiencing a heart condition following her first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. Several other teens died within days of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, and there were 432 reports of myocarditis and 86 reports of blood clotting disorders in this age group. While some of them may be coincidental, the overall pattern is very alarming and something that all parents need to keep in mind when deciding if their children should get vaccinated.
U.S. Federal District Judge Allen Winsor of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida has ruled that Pfizer-BioNTech’s Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccine” bearing emergency use authorization (EUA) is not interchangeable with the company’s new Comirnaty injection, which was fully licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) back in August.
Judge Winsor did, however, reject a preliminary injunction requested by 16 service members against the U.S. military’s Chinese Virus injection mandate. A hearing for that case is scheduled for Sept. 14, 2022, which is nearly 10 months down the road.
Judge Winsor’s decision about the EUA injection from Pfizer-BioNTech also applies to those from Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen), both of which are also not approved or licensed by the FDA.
It turns out that the FDA’s approval of Comirnaty was accompanied by confusing documents and equally confusing public statements that did not specify any differences between the two injections.
“The licensed vaccine has the same formulation as the EUA-authorized vaccine and the products can be used interchangeably to provide the vaccination series without presenting any safety or effectiveness concerns,” one such confounding statement read.
“The products are legally distinct with certain differences that do not impact safety or effectiveness.”
The FDA utterly failed to explain how the licensed Comirnaty injection and the Pfizer-BioNTech EUA jab could “be used interchangeably,” despite having “certain differences” that make them “legally distinct.”
EUA drugs CANNOT be mandated under U.S. law
As explained by The Defender, EUA products are considered experimental under U.S. law. This means that they cannot be mandated, and everyone has the right to refuse them.
“?he Nuremberg Code, as well as federal law, provide that no human being can be forced to participate in a medical experiment,” The Defender further reported.
“Under 21 U.S. Code Sec.360bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(III), ‘authorization for medical products for use in emergencies,’ it is unlawful to deny someone a job or an education because they refuse to be an experimental subject.”
The FDA’s own fact sheet also says something similar, explaining that under an EUA, “it is your choice to receive or not receive the vaccine. Should you decide not to receive it, it will not change your standard medical care.”
Licensed vaccines can supposedly be pushed on employees and students, according to The Defender, however it is not explained how or why from a constitutional perspective.
Interestingly, the law further states that once a fully licensed product becomes available, in this case Comirnaty, none of the EUA products can continue to be administered. This means that the Biden regime and anyone else trying to force people to take any of these injections is a criminal.
Keep in mind that Comirnaty is not even available to the public yet. This means that there are no vaccines currently available that can legally be mandated on anyone.
“This EUA for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine and COMIRNATY will end when the Secretary of HHS determines that the circumstances justifying the EUA no longer exist or when there is a change in the approval status of the product such that an EUA is no longer needed,” the FDA fact sheet explains.
Acting FDA commissioner Dr. Janet Woodcock said much the same thing about how the “black letter law is clear.”
“There can be no biologic license approved to a medical product for diagnosing, preventing or treating COVID-19 if there is also still an Emergency Use Authorization for the same medical product serving the same purpose,” she said.
The mass media is warping nearly every death to be categorized as caused by Covid or a “Covid-related” death. If we did that with prescription drugs we could label every death from cancer, diabetes and dementia a “prescription-related” death. If you consider how many people have been killed by superbugs in hospitals, like MRSA, the hospitals could chalk up nearly every surgery death as MRSA-related, and those statistics would be mountains higher than they already are today. Yet, the data doesn’t lie, or exaggerate, or warp the numbers to fit a narrative; only people and fake news do.
That’s why nary an American is aware of the REAL causes of death after getting a Covid vaccine, and those causes are not anywhere to be found in the rigged MSM-Big-Pharma-Hospital machine.
Irony of American’s fear of death drives them to get jabbed with deadly prions
If the language of medicine was honest, the doctors and nurses would have to inform each person BEFORE they got a Covid shot that the chances of dying from the shot are higher than dying from Covid-19 or any of its variants. How many people would say “no” then?
If it were required by medical law that a patient reads the vaccine insert, stating its inherent side effects, adverse events, critical injuries, death count and all the toxic emulsifiers, adjuvants, allergens, bacteria, genetically modified animal tissue, other deadly viruses, heavy metals and even aborted human baby cells, then most people would be so overwhelmed they would walk away and “take their chances” with Covid.
Vaccines kill and maim people all the time, it’s just not in the news. Whenever some poison takes more than a day or two to kill someone, it’s not that difficult to pass the blame onto something else, especially if they have pre-existing, chronic health conditions, like two-thirds of all Americans are suffering right now.
Americans are under the impression that all medicine, treatments and vaccines recommended by the CDC (center for disease continuance) and the FDA (fraudulent drug approval) agencies want to save people from dying, but it’s just the opposite. That’s why every death from every vaccine, especially Covid jabs, is blamed on something else – anything else. It’s time to change your search engine to “DuckDuckGo” right now, and keep it that way, so you too can read all about the 9 ways to die from Covid vaccines that you won’t find out about through Google.
Top 9 non-Covid-caused ways people are dying shortly after getting Covid vaccines
#1. Blood clots from Covid jabs cause myocarditis, heart attacks and strokes.
#2. Vaccine-induced death described as “died suddenly” or “died unexpectedly” from unknown (or natural) causes, even with perfectly healthy athletes and soldiers.
#3. Suicide from isolation, destitution, hopelessness from lockdowns, social distancing, closed businesses, virtual school/life, fake friends on social media.
#4. Pre-existing conditions/diseases driven to the brink by the Covid clot shots that cause severe inflammation, vascular degeneration, loss of oxygen and nutrient flow in the blood.
#5. “Vaccidents” – deadly automobile or airplane accidents caused by adverse events from Covid jabs that take place while driving/flying; such as loss of consciousness, mini-stroke, anaphylaxis, etc.
#6. The Covid vaccines lower immune system function (ADE) causing the person to die from just about any bacterial, viral, parasitic or pathogenic infection.
#7. Bacterial infections of the mouth, throat and lungs from wearing a mask all day turn into pneumonia, which ends up killing the person.
#8. Prion diseases are now common among the vaccinated and killing by the numbers, and there is scientific proof (over 80% of all excess Alzheimer’s, dementia and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease now linked to Covid shots).
#9. Vaccine-induced abortion (yes, and it happens to the majority of pregnant women’s babies during the 2nd and 3rd trimester).

Thanks to the efforts of a group called Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency, we now have smoking gun confidential documents that show Pfizer and the FDA knew in early 2021 that pfizer’s mRNA vaccines were killing thousands of people and causing spontaneous abortions while damaging three times more women than men.
One confidential document in particular was part of a court-ordered release of FDA files that the FDA fought by claiming the agency should have 55 years to release this information. A court judge disagreed and ordered the release of 500 documents per month, and the very first batch of documents contained this bombshell entitled, “Cumulative Analysis of Post-Authorization Adverse Event Reports.”
Get it here:
Or here, mirrored on NN servers:
The document reveals that within just 90 days after the EUA release of Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine, the company was already aware of voluntary adverse reaction reports that revealed 1,223 deaths and over 42,000 adverse reports describing a total of 158,893 adverse reactions. The reports originated from numerous countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, France, Portugal, Spain and other nations.
Aside from “general disorders,” the No. 1 most frequently reported category of mRNA vaccine adverse reactions was Nervous system disorders, clocking in at 25,957 reports.
Pfizer has withheld the total number of doses released across the world, citing corporate trade secrets. This is indicated by “(b) (4)” in the document, where specific numbers and facts are redacted.
Even these numbers — already quite shocking, given the FDA’s insistence that mRNA vaccines are “safe and effective” — barely scratch the surface of the damage and deaths caused by these vaccines. “Reports are submitted voluntarily, and the magnitude of underreporting is unknown,” says Pfizer on page 5.
Three times as many women damaged, compared to men
Shockingly, the document reveals that more than three times as many women were damaged by the Pfizer vaccine, compared to men. There were 29,914 adverse events recorded in women, with just 9,182 recorded in men. It is not known whether the same number of men and women took the vaccine, but this number exposes the very real possibility of a gender-specific vaccine damage risk that the FDA went to great lengths to cover up.
Anecdotally, most of the neurological damage we’ve seen in people who have been damaged by the vaccine — convulsions, numbness, pain, etc. — has been depicted in women, not men. It looks like the FDA knows the mRNA vaccine exhibits a disproportionate, gender-specific damage profile that also affects women in terms of spontaneous abortions (also covered in the report).
Pfizer told the FDA its mRNA covid vaccines can cause “enhanced disease” by making covid worse
Also to the shock of many observers who are just now digging into this smoking gun document, Pfizer told the FDA under “Safety concerns” (section 3.1.2) that its mRNA injection could cause, “Vaccine-Associated Enhanced Disease (VAED), including Vaccine-associated Enhanced Respiratory Disease (VAERD).”
This means the FDA knew the vaccine could sicken and kill patients who were later infected with covid.
Under the label of “missing information,” Pfizer also told the FDA that it has no information about “Use in Pregnancy and lactation” nor covering “Use in Paediatric Individuals < 12 Years of Age.”
“Vaccine Effectiveness” was also listead as “Missing information” by Pfizer.
In other words, Pfizer told the FDA its vaccines could kill people and that it had no information about vaccine effectiveness, yet the FDA fraudulently pushed the vaccine as “safe and effective” anyway. Pfizer even told the FDA that it had no safety information about use in pregnant women, yet the FDA (and Fauci, the CDC, etc.) all pushed the vaccine for pregnant women, despite the utter lack of safety information.
Based on this document, it appears that the FDA itself has been neck-deep in a criminal conspiracy to hide the truth about vaccine injuries and deaths while granting usage approvals to the very same corporations that openly told the FDA its products were killing people.
Note, too, that the entire corporate media complex has lied from day one, falsely claiming the vaccine has killed no one. They are, of course, complicit in this vaccine holocaust.
Spontaneous abortions, neonatal death and other effects on pregnant women
In the section labeled, “Use in Pregnancy and lactation,” the report discusses reports of the mRNA vaccine being linked to:
spontaneous abortion (23), outcome pending (5), premature birth with neonatal death, spontaneous abortion with intrauterine death (2 each), spontaneous abortion with neonatal death, and normal outcome (1 each).
Notice that “spontaneous abortion” represents by far the highest number in these reports. In other words, the FDA knew this vaccine would kill unborn babies, but they pushed it on pregnant women anyway.
All mRNA vaccines must be immediately halted, and FDA bureaucrats must be indicted and arrested
This confidential document — just the first of thousands yet to be released — reveals two critical things:
1) The FDA committed criminal fraud and misrepresentation in approving mRNA vaccines as “safe and effective.” This means top FDA decision makers must now face arrest and criminal prosecution.
2) The mRNA vaccine was known by Pfizer to be deadly even in its first three months of emergency use. This means Pfizer is also complicit in the continued deaths of innocent victims, as Pfizer itself should have pulled its deadly vaccine and halted all sales and distribution.

A serious staffing shortage at New York City jails is about to get a lot worse as nearly 2,000 workers are estimated to have failed to comply with a vaccine mandate deadline that passed on Tuesday evening.
New York City’s Department of Corrections (DOC) reported on Monday that 77 percent of its staff had received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is the lowest rate of any of the city’s agencies. This means that roughly 1,900 employees still had not complied or applied for a waiver. The deadline had already been delayed by a month due to existing staffing shortages in the city’s jails.
Officials said that the jail workers who have applied for exemptions on religious or medical grounds will continue to work while their cases are reviewed. After The New York Post reported that the DOC declined repeated requests to disclose the number of applicants who had requested or been granted reasonable accommodations, a City Hall press secretary tweeted that 270 workers had made a request as of November 12. However, it is not known how much that number might have risen ahead of the deadline. Those whose applications are denied can file an appeal with the agency’s Office of Equal Employment Opportunity.
It is estimated that among the employees who have yet to get the vaccine are 1,095 corrections officers and 168 captains. Workers who chose not to comply with the mandate are being required to turn in their firearms, vests and shields.
Outgoing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has already subjected other city workers to similar mandates, said he believes the vaccination rate among corrections officers will go up as workers start to miss paychecks or get the jab after their exemptions are denied.
Workers forced to take on longer shifts at understaffed prisons
Rikers Island has been dealing with a number of problems, including surges in both inmate populations and staff retirements. They have also been experiencing widespread worker absenteeism caused by the jail’s dangerous and squalid conditions as well as forced triple and quadruple shifts.
Making matters worse, de Blasio signed an executive order extending workers’ shifts from 8 to 12 hours as a way of addressing the staffing shortage. Many have questioned the wisdom of asking those remaining corrections workers, many of whom are already overworked, to take on even more hours in a very dangerous and underpaid job.
The president of the Correction Officers’ Benevolent Association, Benny Boscio Jr., called the mayor’s extended shift order “nothing short of torture.” Speaking to The New York Post, he said: “The same Mayor who vowed that triple shifts were ending for Correction Officers in October is now guaranteeing every officer work 24 hours plus with this dangerous executive order.
Boscio Jr. said that staffing at city jails was as bad, if not worse, than it was when de Blasio extended the mandate’s deadline in October. He added that less than 100 of the 600 new guards they were promised have been hired, and none have started working. At the same time, retirements and resignations are piling up as guards continue to work longer and longer shifts without time for meals or breaks.
“To move forward with placing what little staff we do have on leave tomorrow would be like pouring gasoline on a fire, which will have a catastrophic impact on the safety of our officers and the thousands of inmates in our custody,” he added.
The president of the Correction Captains Association, meanwhile, said that the vaccine mandate should have been scrapped in light of the staffing crisis. Patrick Ferraiuolo told The New York Post: “There is no reason we couldn’t have continued with weekly testing for staff that have not been vaccinated.
“At the end of the day, it is still their choice. I find it absurd that visitors who come to visit inmates and the inmates themselves are not mandated. What sense does that make?”
What I am about to share with you sounds very strange, but it is all true. Before I get into it, let me ask you a question. If you could have a vaccine passport permanently embedded into your hand, would you do it? Amazingly, some people in Sweden are willingly doing this to themselves. They are putting microchips that contain their vaccine passport information into their hands, and they are raving about how convenient this is. You can actually watch a video of this being done to someone right here. The video is not in English, but you will be able to understand what is happening.
I was absolutely floored when I first watched that.
The White House’s chief medical adviser, Anthony Fauci, says it’s unlikely that the Covid-19 coronavirus will ever be wiped out, and insists the world is just going to have to start living with it.
During an interview with CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ on Sunday, Fauci said he didn’t believe Covid-19 was ever going to entirely go away. He noted that the world had only ever eliminated one infection completely: smallpox.
“We’re going to have to start living with Covid. I believe that’s the case because I don’t think we’re going to eradicate it,” Fauci told CBS.
If we are “going to have to start living with COVID”, that means that all of the infrastructure that they are now putting in place will be with us from now on.
That means that there isn’t going to be an end to the vaccine passports, the mandates or the injections.
“I think we’re going to have an annual revaccination and that should be able to keep us really safe.”
You are going to keep getting shots year after year after year in order to keep earning the “privileges” that you have been granted.
How sick is that?
They want to make their authoritarian measures a permanent part of our lives, and this is what our society is going to look like from now on unless we take a stand.
The good news is that some courts here in the United States are starting to reject the mandates that Joe Biden tried to implement. On Monday, a federal court blocked Biden’s mandate for health care workers in 10 states, and on Tuesday a different court blocked that same mandate on a nationwide basis…
A federal court has issued a nationwide injunction protecting health care workers across the country from Joe Biden’s COVID vaccine mandate.
Yesterday, in response to a multi-state lawsuit led by Missouri, a federal court barred the Biden administration from enforcing a vaccine mandate for health care workers in 10 states who are employed at federally-funded health care clinics. That means they doctors and nurses can’t be fired for refusing the COVID vaccine despite Biden’s federal mandate requiring them to get it.
Today, a federal court in Louisiana expanded on that ruling and blocked the vaccine mandate nationwide.
But just because they have a legal setback or two does not mean that they are going to stop trying.
Over in Germany, it is being reported that incoming Chancellor Olaf Scholz wants to impose a vaccine mandate on every single German starting in February…
Germany’s incoming Chancellor Olaf Scholz is in favor of introducing mandatory coronavirus vaccination for all Germans as early as February, an official close to Scholz said.
During a crisis meeting Tuesday between the outgoing government of Chancellor Angela Merkel and the premiers of the German federal states, Scholz “signaled his sympathy for such a regulation,” the official told POLITICO.
Such a measure would have to be approved by the German Bundestag, the official said, adding that the mandatory vaccination could come “at the beginning of February.”
Other major industrialized nations are considering similar measures.
If I was living in Germany, I would leave. Of course the same thing could be said about Australia, New Zealand and a bunch of other countries that have gone in a deeply authoritarian direction.
Once vaccines become mandatory for an entire population, vaccine passports will be absolutely necessary for anyone that still wants to live anything that even resembles a “normal life”.
Whether it is on your phone, on a card that you show or actually embedded in your skin, you will need to take it with you wherever you go in case you are stopped by law enforcement authorities.
Needless to say, all of this sounds eerily similar to what we witnessed back in the 1930s.
The people that are doing this to us have taken their masks off and they are showing us who they really are.
Thanks to America’s complacency and willingness to sacrifice freedom for the illusion of safety, the Biden administration is reportedly bringing down the hammer this week. According to a report out of the Washington Post, on Thursday, the president is expected to announce extreme testing and quarantining requirements for all travelers in the United States — including fully vaccinated Americans.
As we are seeing across the planet, governments, unable to understand the seasonality of COVID, are turning to police state measures in futile attempts to contain the virus. Countries all over the west have implemented draconian mandates, locking down the unvaccinated and even issuing fines and penalties to those who refuse the jab.
As we reported last month, Australia began forcibly quarantining citizens in internment camps over the virus and now, because many Americans have stood idly by, this policy is coming home to roost.
Those who thought taking the jab would give them their freedom back are about to find out that they were conned and they will be subject to the same medical tyranny as the unvaccinated, even if they test negative.
As part ofan enhanced winter covid strategy Biden is expected to announceThursday, U.S. officials would require everyone entering the country to be tested one day before boarding flights, regardless of their vaccination status or country of departure. Administration officials are also considering a requirement that all travelers get retested within three to five days of arrival.
In addition, they are debating a controversial proposal to require all travelers, including U.S. citizens, toself-quarantine for seven days, even if their test results are negative. Those who flout the requirements might be subject to fines and penalties, the first time such penalties would be linked to testing and quarantine measures for travelers in the United States.
As we reported this week, the media has waged a massive fear mongering campaign over the “omicron variant” in spite of the fact that the doctor who discovered it, who is a Covid-19 adviser to the South African government said that symptoms linked to the omicron coronavirus variant have been mild so far.
Barry Schoub, chairman of the Ministerial Advisory Committee on Vaccines, told Sky News on Sunday that while South Africa, which first identified the new variant, currently has 3,220 people with the coronavirus infection overall and while the variant does appear to be spreading rapidly, there’s been no real uptick in hospitalizations. His narrative is in direct contrast with that of the western mainstream media which is pumping out 24/7 fearmongering and doom.
Despite the facts, because Americans have become resolute with the idea of sacrificing freedom for a false sense of security, the United States is on its way to becoming a medical police state.
According to the report, Janet Hamilton, executive director of the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists, said that such measures are “a critical step for reducing transmission of SARSCoV-2, whether we are dealing with a newly emerging variant like Omicron or working to reduce transmission of already circulating strains.”
Hopefully, more states choose to follow in the footsteps of Florida and Texas by refusing to follow these tyrannical and unconstitutional dictates from the federal government. Resistance is our only hope.
Since the very beginning of the covid panic, the narrative has been this: implement severe lockdowns or your population will experience a bloodbath. Morgues will be overwhelmed, the death total toll will be astounding. On the other hand, we were assured those jurisdictions that do lock down would see only a fraction of the death toll.
Then, once vaccines became available, the narrative was modified to “Get shots in arms and then covid will stop spreading. Those countries without vaccines, on the other hand, will continue to face mass casualties.”
The lockdown narrative, of course, has already been thoroughly overturned. Jurisdictions that did not lock down or adopted only weak and short lockdowns ended up with covid death tolls that were either similar to—or even better than—death tolls in countries that adopted draconian lockdowns. Lockdown advocates said locked-down countries would be overwhelmingly better off. These people were clearly wrong.
Undaunted by the increasing implausibility of the lockdown narrative, the global health bureaucrats are nonetheless doubling down on forced vaccines—as we now see in Austria—and we continue to be assured that only countries with high vaccination rates can hope to avoid disastrous covid outcomes.
Yet, the experience in sub-Saharan Africa calls both these narratives into question: Africa’s numbers have been far, far lower than the experts warned would be the case.
[T]here is something “mysterious” going on in Africa that is puzzling scientists, said Wafaa El-Sadr, chair of global health at Columbia University. “Africa doesn’t have the vaccines and the resources to fight COVID-19 that they have in Europe and the U.S., but somehow they seem to be doing better,” she said….
Fewer than 6% of people in Africa are vaccinated. For months, the WHO has described Africa as “one of the least affected regions in the world” in its weekly pandemic reports.
Yet disaster for Africa has long been predicted for several reasons even beyond the availability of vaccines. For instance, it is known that lockdowns are especially impractical in the poorest parts of the world. This is because populations in places with undeveloped economies can’t simply sit at home and live off savings or debt. Rather, these people must go out into the world and earn a living on a day-to-day basis. Starvation is the alternative. Moreover, much of this work is done in the informal economy, so enforcing lockdowns becomes especially difficult.
But Richard Wamai at Northeastern University rejects the claim it’s all about case reporting, and says that “local systems for reporting deaths in Africa make it difficult to hide COVID-19 casualties.” In a paper for the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, Wamai and his coauthors conclude, “[T]here is no evidence that COVID-19 mortality data is less accurately reported in Africa than elsewhere” and “While the true picture of infections and mortality in the continent has yet to fully emerge, the quality of data for other diseases, such as HIV/AIDS, indicates that Africa has the capacity to collect and report valid disease surveillance data.”
In any case, the World Health Organization reports that covid deaths in Africa make up only 2.9 percent of covid deaths, while Africa’s population is 16 percent of the global total. Africa’s covid total could double or triple, and Africa would still be faring far better than Europe and the Americas.
Wamai et al. also note that at this point “[i]t is likely that SARS-CoV-2 has already been widely disseminated through Africa…. If so, widespread infection is likely to also result in widespread natural immunity.”
In other words, continued claims by health officials—both in Africa and elsewhere—that mass death is right around the corner with the “next wave” look increasingly implausible.
It looks increasingly likely that the lack of covid mortality in Africa is not due to a data issue nor a situation in which covid has been “contained” up until now. So then why is Africa doing so much better than the wealthy West?
Naturally, the advocates of forced lockdowns and coerced vaccines would prefer to ignore this issue altogether, but the undeniable reality of Africa’s experience has forced mainstream researchers to publicly admit the many ways that many factors can explain covid’s prevalence beyond vaccination rates and mask mandates.
For instance, mentioning that obesity is an important factor in covid mortality has in the past been likely to get one savaged in the media for “fat shaming.” Yet the Africa situation has forced the well informed to admit that yes, obese populations clearly suffer more from covid. In Africa, not surprisingly, we find that obesity rates are far below those found in North America and Europe.
In the West, however, the media drumbeat around covid has consistently been “Shut up, stay home, get jabbed, and stop doubting the experts on forced vaccines.” Fortunately, however, the African situation has forced many researchers to ask inconvenient questions.
In fact, it’s amazing Africa has not been overcome by mass death considering that covid lockdowns and covid “mitigation” measures have contributed to the impoverishment and mass starvation on the continent. Or as Germany’s DW News puts it, “Measures put in place to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus are pushing millions of people in Africa into severe hunger.” And as Wamai notes, “[S]ome of the excess deaths in Africa “can be attributed not to the disease, but to lockdown measures that cut off access to medical care for other illnesses.”
But Africa hasn’t gotten the bloodbath that was promised, and as one Nigerian put it, “They said there will be dead bodies on the streets and all that, but nothing like that happened.”
As TFTP reported, in November, the Australian Army began forcibly removing residents in the Northern Territories to the Howard Springs quarantine camp located in Darwin. This police state insanity was launched after just 9 cases of covid were identified in the community of Binjari.
“Residents of Binjari and Rockhole no longer have the five reasons to leave their homes,” said Northern Territory chief minister and leading tyrant of Australia, Michael Gunner, referring to the country’s five allowable reasons to avoid lockdown (buying food and supplies, exercising for up to two hours, care or caregiving, work or education if it can’t be done from home, and to get vaccinated at the nearest possible location).
“They can only leave for medical treatment, in an emergency, or as required by law.”
“It’s highly likely that more residents will be transferred to Howard Springs today, either as positive cases or close contacts,” he continued, adding “We have already identified 38 close contacts from Binjari but that number will go up. Those 38 are being transferred now.”
After media in the West picked up on this atrocious practice of rounding up Aboriginals and forcibly placing them in internment camps, Gunner wrote it off in an unhinged press conference in which he claimed it was all lies and misinformation.
“I don’t really want to lean into the lies that are being spread,” he said. “Although, given these press conferences genuinely get spliced up by international trolls: ‘Hello, conspiracy theorists overseas watching this: Please, get a life’.”
Despite his rhetoric, however, reports keep flowing out of the region, and, most recently, a rather inspiring tale of teens escaping one of these camps has come to light.
Earlier this week, three teenagers who were being held inside the Norther Australian covid internment camp — escaped. On Tuesday, according to Australian authorities, a manhunt was launched and checkpoints set up after the teens, aged 15, 16 and 17, scaled a fence at the quarantine center and escaped at around 4:30am, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
The teens were being held against their will in the internment camp — not because they had Covid-19 — but because they had reportedly been near someone who did. Naturally, they didn’t like being imprisoned for this, so they escaped.
Because a few people tested positive in the community last month, literally hundreds of people — who all tested negative — have been rounded up and shipped off to the quarantine camp.
In a completely detached understatement, the tyrant behind this madness, Gunner, said that quarantine was “pretty hard for some people … used to being close to family and community.”
“Pretty hard?” Really?
Completely destroying his own narrative that these camps are voluntary and acceptable, after a manhunt was launched and checkpoints setup by police to catch and arrest the escaped teens, Gunner told the press that “there will be consequences” for anyone who tries to escape his camps.
“Absconding from Howard Springs isn’t just dangerous — it is incredibly stupid,” he said.
“Because we will catch you and there will be consequences.”
Despite rhetoric claiming that the detention at this facility was voluntary and pleasant, these recent escapes say otherwise. One does not scale a fence and risk jail and thousands of dollars in fines to leave a club med-type facility, yet this is exactly what’s happening.
Prior to the teens escaping, another man — who also did not have Covid-19 — broke free from the internment camp. As ABC reports:
The escape comes days after a 27-year-old man escaped the facility by scaling a fence and heading for the Mitchell Street party strip in a waiting vehicle.
The man tested negative for the virus but the incident is still under investigation, with police searching for the driver of the vehicle involved.
This is not a conspiracy theory. The Australian government is rounding up people and forcibly detaining them in a prison camp and treating them like fugitives if they try to leave. Gunner is the one who is actually spreading lies and misinformation and the fact that this isn’t a front page story on every news outlet in the world, speaks to the complacency of those who believe him.
Around the world, there are way more deaths and adverse reactions with the COVID shots than are being reported, according to this video.
In it, a mom and dad of a young woman who took the Moderna shot talk about how ill it made her, from the first day. She went to work anyway, but ended up collapsing in a chair in her boss’ office. She went home, had more adverse events, then went to the hospital, where she stayed for two weeks.
Everyone understood she’d had the vaccine, her parents say, but they had no diagnosis. Today her daughter has to use a walker to get around — and this was just from the first shot. Also, her eyes are blurry, she can’t concentrate and she’s in constant pain, her parents say.
If you or someone you know is considering getting the vaccine, please watch this video and hear this family’s story, the host urges.
