Socialized medicine - the end game

Take heed what is happening to the North - the idea of socialized medicine sounds very attractive to the low-information voter. Unfortunately, you run out of money and crap like this happens more and more often - from FOX News:

Canada offered assisted suicide to a Paralympian veteran who wanted a wheelchair lift installed
Canada's Veterans Affairs office offered to assist a Paralympian and veteran to commit suicide when she sought to have a wheelchair lift installed in her home, the woman told lawmakers last week.

Christine Gauthier, a 52-year-old retired corporal who competed in the 2016 Paralympics at Rio De Janeiro, testified to lawmakers that a VA official had offered — in writing — to provide her with a medically-assisted suicide kit. The case officer remains unnamed but reportedly made similar offers to at least three other veterans, according to the Independent.

"I have a letter saying that if you’re so desperate, madam, we can offer you MAID, medical assistance in dying," Gauthier said in a hearing before the House of Commons veterans affairs committee.

Remember death panels anyone?  Remember when that was in the 2009 news when Obamacare was being debated?

Over 1,000 comments - well worth reading.  Hit a nerve.

Markets in everything - unvaxed blood

| No Comments

If I were facing surgery, I would certainly want to have un-vaccinated blood. I was suspicious from the start - suspicions that have borne out to be true.  The base technology is too new - it had never been used for a commercial product before.  Untested.  When it takes a FOIA lawsuit to get the data, something is horribly wrong.

From Vice:

‘SafeBlood’ Hardliners Want to Set Up Unvaccinated Blood Banks
Anti-vaxxers are trying to create a new global infrastructure for the supply of unvaccinated blood, driven by conspiracy theories and pseudoscientific beliefs about the dangers of mRNA COVID vaccines.

SafeBlood Donation was founded by a Swiss naturopath, George Della Pietra, who considers global coronavirus vaccination campaigns to be “the crime of the century.”

He and his supporters believe, wrongly, that mRNA coronavirus vaccines “contaminate” the blood and destroy the immune system, and that unvaccinated people will be harmed if they receive transfusions of blood supplied by vaccinated people.

"believe, wrongly, that" - excuse me but that editorial comment is 100% wrong on so many levels.

Backpedaling on the narrative - take two

First, they are admitting that the jab might somehow be linked to the unexpected myocarditis uptick in otherwise healthy people. Now this - from The Epoch Times:

FDA Says Telling People Not to Take Ivermectin for COVID-19 Was Just a Recommendation
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) telling people to “stop” taking ivermectin for COVID-19 was informal and just a recommendation, government lawyers argued during a recent hearing.

“The cited statements were not directives. They were not mandatory. They were recommendations. They said what parties should do. They said, for example, why you should not take ivermectin to treat COVID-19. They did not say you may not do it, you must not do it. They did not say it’s prohibited or it’s unlawful. They also did not say that doctors may not prescribe ivermectin,” Isaac Belfer, one of the lawyers, told the court during the Nov. 1 hearing in federal court in Texas.

“They use informal language, that is true,” he also said, adding that, “it’s conversational but not mandatory.”

The hearing was held in a case brought by three doctors who say the FDA illegally interfered with their ability to prescribe medicine to their patients when it issued statements on ivermectin, an anti-parasitic that has shown positive results in some trials against COVID-19.

More at the site.  The instigators in the Pharma companies and the government officials who enabled them really need to be prosecuted for this.  So many people dead and injured from something that was released and pushed on us before it was fully understood.

We The People need to understand just how much we were lied to.
This needs to never ever happen again.

I started taking Ivermectin when the data first came out two years ago.  I did a bit of research - turns out that it's anti-viral properties are well known and well documented.  I take two doses a day apart and do this once every 3-4 weeks and also if I have been exposed (near someone with a wet cough or in a confined space with a crowd)  Had a brief cold last spring but otherwise been perfectly healthy and I am out in public a lot. I get a lot of exposure. I also take supplements - zinc, quercetin, some vitamins.

From Kalamazoo, MI station WWMT:

Pfizer, Moderna researching rare side effect linked to COVID vaccines
With a triple-threat virus sweeping across the country, pharmaceutical companies have launched their own clinical trials on COVID vaccines in young adults and the possible impact of heart conditions.

The senior fellow at the Cato Institute, Dr. Jeffrey Singer, joined The National Desk Friday to talk more about this. Both Pfizer and Moderna are conducting clinical trials to determine if their COVID-19 vaccines could be contributing to possible cardiac issues.

"Well, we've known for about a year that in young people, mostly males, but in females as well, we seem to have vaccine-induced myocarditis. That's an inflammation of the heart muscle only associated so far with the mRNA vaccines. For quite some time now, we've known since the summer of 2020 that almost all of the serious illnesses and deaths occur in people who are over the age of 50 and usually have other comorbidities," Singer explained. "So there have been several experts who have been saying, 'What's the rush in trying to get the young people, who are at least risk for getting vaccinated, through an emergency use authorization? Why don't we spend some more time studying it?' But nevertheless, that's happened."

Singer said since there have been some cases, the manufacturers themselves, Pfizer and Moderna, are going to research if myocarditis is a significant side effect in vaccinated young people.

'Scuse me but this link has been known since the outset - over two years ago.  They had the information but kept it from the public.

From Zero Hedge:

Lawyer For Canadian Commission Investigating Trucker Protests Collapses During Proceedings
Gabriel Poliquin, a lawyer for the Public Order Emergency Commission "investigating" the circumstances that led to Justin Trudeau's recent use of emergency powers, violently collapsed during commission proceedings with no indication from his family or the Canadian media as to the cause. 

Tyler closes with:

While it is not known what triggered Poliquin's collapse during questioning, surely many people will be wondering if he is suffering from a new heart condition featuring myocarditis or blood clotting.

Geeee - 'ya think?  There sure is a lot of that happening these days.  More than 10% above the mean.  Being reported from lots of different sources. Maybe someone should look into the cause — some common thread...

The article talks about the lockdowns as though they were a normal part of the last couple of years - to do different would invalidate a large part of the overall narrative. Ignores the fact that Kids Do Not Get Covid.  Never have, never will.  Their self-diagnosis feeds on their own anxieties.
From the New York Times

Teens Turn to TikTok in Search of a Mental Health Diagnosis
About a year into the pandemic, Kianna, a high school student in Baltimore, was feeling increasingly isolated. While sitting alone in her bedroom there was too much time to think, she said, so sometimes she would fixate on her seclusion or start critiquing her appearance.

“I remember just being on TikTok for hours during my day,” added Kianna, 17, who asked to be referred to by only her first name when speaking about her mental health. “That’s when my self-esteem started declining.”

At the time, in early 2021, her 10th grade classes were virtual, and she had begun texting with her friends instead of talking to them. Her anxiety bred headaches, poor sleep and the odd feeling of living outside of her body. Then, she started seeing videos on TikTok about depersonalization disorder, a type of dissociative condition that can make people feel disconnected, as though their body is detached from their thoughts, almost like being in a dream.

“I have this,” she recalled thinking to herself. But mental illness wasn’t the type of thing she would normally discuss with her friends or family. She didn’t tell anyone about her revelation. “I was so in my head that something was wrong with me.”

In recent years, discussions about mental health have proliferated on social media, particularly on TikTok, where the format allows for easily digestible, intimate videos that appear in a never-ending algorithmic feed. And for those researching various disorders, it has become increasingly easy to find bite-sized definitions and self-assessment quizzes online. While this bounty of unfiltered resources can serve to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness, there are downsides.

More at the site - yet another horrible social and financial expense that Pfizer and Fauci and all the others are directly responsible for. This blood is on their hands.

Correct me if I am wrong - monkeypox

| No Comments

The next epidemic.  They were touting this as being something to be very afraid of.

They actually ran a simulation of a monkeypox outbreak in the USA - calling it by name - back in November 2021.

Turns out it is a disease spread by men having sex with other men (98% in the USA).

But then, kids (infant) and dogs started catching it.

Now?  It has disappeared.  Can't shed a bad light on the privileged class now can we. 
Goes against the narrative.  Can't offend those in power.

A cautionary tale - the Chinese virus

| No Comments

I am not an Md. or a virologist or an epidemiologist but I majored in Biology in college and both of my parents were scientists.  I can read a paper and sus-out what it is saying.  I can track down citations and see what the authors are building on.  This is disturbing - from rescue.substack:

Is Geert Right? Let’s Hope Not
ANTWERP, Belgium—I spent nearly three hours in this historic city on October 11 in an interview with Geert Vanden Bossche, who has devoted years to studying the complex interplay between vaccines and the human immune system. In our talk, this Belgian veterinarian-turned-virologist and vaccine researcher made unsettling predictions for the future.

I can only hope that Vanden Bossche, 62, is wrong. Let’s for the moment assume he is, that there are significant variables that can and often do intervene. That will make this story easier to read as well as write.

From the start, I asked Vanden Bossche to speak, uncharacteristically for him, in as simple terms as possible.

The short version is this: He predicts a vicious wave of covid-19, with cases already rising in parts of Europe. The coming re-emergence of SARS-CoV-2 will escalate quickly, he contends, and make all other waves pale in comparison. It will, he believes, be driven by the vaccinated, or more accurately, by the misdirected and scientifically dubious policy of repeated mass vaccination.

Much more at the site - very well explained.  Here is a bit:

While the unvaccinated gained long-lasting, adaptable natural immunity from covid infection, the vaccinated harbor a confused and mostly unhelpful array of old-variant anti-spike antibodies; Vanden Bossche believes these so complicate the immune response that more serious disease from new variants will result. In the vaccinated, the SARS-CoV-2 virus, he predicts, will imminently turn a corner from more contagious to more virulent.  

Going to be an interesting winter.  Both Lisa and I have various supplements stocked up.  Neither of us are travelling through any large cities at any time in the future — trips to Costco don't count 😎

See what happens and what our "leaders" reaction is.  Fifteen days to flatten the curve is not going to cut it any more.  It didn't the first time.

Something to remember - mRNA vaccines

A brand new technology rushed to market too early:


Fun and games - the jab

| No Comments

Florida became the first state in the union to come out and state what a lot of people have been noticing.  The mRNA vaccine technology is seriously not ready for use.

From the Florida Department of Health:

Guidance for mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines
October 7, 2022
Florida continues to emphasize that health care providers review all data to evaluate risks and benefits unique to each patient when determining any health care services to provide, including the
administration of COVID-19 vaccines containing Messenger RNA (mRNA) which both the PfizerBioNTech and the Moderna vaccines utilize.

The Florida Department of Health (Department) conducted an analysis through a self-controlled case series, which is a technique originally developed to evaluate vaccine safety. This studied mortality risk following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination. This analysis found there is an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination. Individuals with preexisting cardiac conditions, such as myocarditis and pericarditis, should take particular caution when considering vaccination and discuss with their health care provider.

As such, the Florida Department of Health has issued the following guidance:

Based on currently available data, patients should be informed of the possible cardiac complications that can arise after receiving a mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. With a high level of global immunity to
COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiacrelated death among men in this age group.

The State Surgeon General now recommends against the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines for males ages 18-39 years old.

Individuals and health care providers should also be aware that this analysis found:

    • Males over the age of 60 had a 10% increased risk of cardiac-related death within 28 days of mRNA vaccination.
    • Non-mRNA vaccines were not found to have these increased risks among any population.

Floridians are encouraged to discuss all the potential benefits and risks of receiving mRNA COVID-19 vaccines with their health care provider. The risk associated with mRNA vaccination should be weighed against the risk associated with COVID-19 infection.

Kind of lays it out there.  The vaccines are dangerous.  More than the disease.
This is backed up with SCIENCE and not narrative.  Numbers do not lie.  Politicians do.

A curious number

To quote Joseph Stalin: “A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic.”

From Chicago, IL's The Center Square:

Indiana life insurance CEO says deaths are up 40% among people ages 18-64
The head of Indianapolis-based insurance company OneAmerica said the death rate is up a stunning 40% from pre-pandemic levels among working-age people.

“We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business – not just at OneAmerica,” the company’s CEO Scott Davison said during an online news conference this week. “The data is consistent across every player in that business.”

OneAmerica is a $100 billion insurance company that has had its headquarters in Indianapolis since 1877. The company has approximately 2,400 employees and sells life insurance, including group life insurance to employers nationwide.

Davison said the increase in deaths represents “huge, huge numbers,” and that’s it’s not elderly people who are dying, but “primarily working-age people 18 to 64” who are the employees of companies that have group life insurance plans through OneAmerica.

“And what we saw just in third quarter, we’re seeing it continue into fourth quarter, is that death rates are up 40% over what they were pre-pandemic,” he said.

“Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be 10% increase over pre-pandemic,” he said. “So 40% is just unheard of.”

This article was posted on January 1st, 2022 - I just ran into it today via an email.  What is interesting is that I can not find any follow-up data.  Almost like the numbers are not good so they are keeping mum...

#1) - Australia has been draconian in their reaction to Covid
#2) - there is an established body of evidence that people with sufficient levels of Vitamin D do not have as bad an outcome from a Covid infection (sources: Mayo Clinic, UC Davis, WebMD and National Institutes of Health for starters)
#3) - this little gem from Australia's National Tribune:

Cutting down vitamin D tests could help lower carbon cost of healthcare
Unnecessary vitamin D testing in Australia is costing our healthcare system up to $87 million and is contributing to the sector’s significant but avoidable carbon footprint, say researchers.

A study examining the climate impact of low-value healthcare activity in Australia has found that unnecessary vitamin D tests generated carbon emissions equivalent to a car driving from Sydney to Perth 59 times.

The researchers say in 2020 unnecessary vitamin D tests in Australia cost the healthcare system over $87 million (AUD) and had a carbon footprint of 28,000 to 42,000 kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions (kg CO2e).

The carbon footprint from vitamin D tests was calculated from the embedded emissions in the blood collection equipment such as needles, syringes and glass tubes. They have to be manufactured, distributed and disposed of, all of which generates carbon emissions.

Reducing unnecessary vitamin D tests could help lower the carbon footprint of healthcare in the country.

They have zero reason to deny people a simple test for the level of Vitamin D in their bodies so they make up an excuse.

One step ahead of the jailer - Fauci

Getting out while the getting is good.  The house of cards is collapsing and he wants to avoid prosecution.  Go out on a high note.  Probably a lucrative book deal in there somewhere too...
From the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases:

Statement by Anthony S. Fauci, M.D.
I am announcing today that I will be stepping down from the positions of Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation, as well as the position of Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden. I will be leaving these positions in December of this year to pursue the next chapter of my career.

It has been the honor of a lifetime to have led the NIAID, an extraordinary institution, for so many years and through so many scientific and public health challenges. I am very proud of our many accomplishments. I have worked with – and learned from – countless talented and dedicated people in my own laboratory, at NIAID, at NIH and beyond. To them I express my abiding respect and gratitude.

Over the past 38 years as NIAID Director, I have had the enormous privilege of serving under and advising seven Presidents of the United States, beginning with President Ronald Reagan, on newly emerging and re-emerging infectious disease threats including HIV/AIDS, West Nile virus, the anthrax attacks, pandemic influenza, various bird influenza threats, Ebola and Zika, among others, and, of course, most recently the COVID-19 pandemic. I am particularly proud to have served as the Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden since the very first day of his administration.

Good riddance.  I only wish that he would be spending some time in jail for his crimes - he bungled the AIDS/HIV epidemic and his quality of work has not improved with time.

Monkeypox - some numbers

| No Comments

Looks like it is very specific in its choice of victims - and the media is strangely silent.
From Associated Press:

US offers extra monkeypox vaccine doses for gay pride events
The U.S. is setting aside an extra 50,000 doses of monkeypox vaccine for places with upcoming gay pride events, health officials said Thursday.

The number of doses sent to each place will be based on factors like the size of the event, how many health workers will be available to give shots, and how many of the attendees are considered at highest risk for catching the virus.

So nice of the USA to take care of this population.  Scoll down to paragraph #10 and #11 for these numbers:

There have been more than 39,000 cases reported in countries that have not historically seen monkeypox. The vast majority have occurred in men who have sex with men, but health officials stress that anyone can get monkeypox.

The U.S. has the most infections of any country — more than 13,500. About 98% of U.S. cases are men and about 93% were men who reported recent sexual contact with other men.

OK - the transmission seems to be via gay sex between men.  Which begs the questions in these two headlines:

At Least 8 Children in the U.S. Have Now Tested Positive for Monkeypox

Family pet tests for monkeypox as first human-to-dog transmission case confirmed

Begs the question: Is nothing sacred?  I guess not. So wrapped up in their lifestyle that they cannot abstain for a few weeks.  Or get a monogamous relationship.

Information wants to be free and yes, it is leaking out despite the best efforts of our government.
From Emerald Robinson’s The Right Way:

Why Is The CDC Hiding Excess Death Data?
There's 50,000 Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) & cancer deaths that have gone missing

The number of “non natural cause” deaths in America has skyrocketed so much that the CDC has simply stopped processing the data.

In fact, the CDC stopped updating cancer deaths in Week 50 of 2021.

Researchers who use the CDC’s “mortality statistics” cannot access the data at all.

This is just the smallest of excerpts - the post is a big one with lots of screen caps and links to other writers and researchers.  This is only the tip of the iceberg.

We have been lied to from the outset.  The big pharma industry saw the Wuhan Flu as an opportunity to bring mRNA technology to market.  It had never been used with the general public before - it was untested. The adverse reactions started happening and they could not stop the roll-out so they swept the adverse data under the statistical rug and began a massive Public Relations program to marginalize anyone who tried to make this public.

Heads need to roll here.  Literally.  We are talking many tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths.

Reading between the lines - from Danish pharma manufacturer Bavarian Nordic:


    • Bavarian Nordic to supply an additional 2.5 million doses of JYNNEOS® vaccine, bringing deliveries in 2022 and 2023 to a total of nearly 7 million doses
    • Filling capacity is being expanded with a U.S. based contract manufacturer who will fill the vaccines using existing bulk vaccine from previous orders from BARDA
    • Tech transfer to the contract manufacturer and manufacturing planned for 2022
    • Company upgrades its financial guidance for 2022

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, July 15, 2022 – Bavarian Nordic A/S (OMX: BAVA) announced today that the U.S. Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), part of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has ordered an additional 2.5 million doses of liquid-frozen JYNNEOS®, a non-replicating smallpox vaccine and the only FDA-approved vaccine against monkeypox.

The new order follows two previous orders from BARDA in June and July 2022 for 500,000 and 2.5 million doses respectively which, together with an order from BARDA in 2020 for 1.4 million doses, will bring the total deliveries in 2022 and 2023 to nearly 7 million doses.

And how does monkeypox propagate?  Most common spread is among gay men. Figure it out for yourself...

Two papers, two separate research groups — same conclusion:

Inhibition of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus replication in a lethal SARS-CoV BALB/c mouse model by stinging nettle lectin, Urtica dioica agglutinin

Of course, big pharma will ignore this since it cannot be patented and monetized.

Got a loopy relative who's a bit hard to manage?  From LifeSite News:

Canada looks to expand assisted suicide law to include mental illness
Dr Ramona Coelho is a family physician in London, Ontario, whose practice includes caring for marginalized patients and those living with mental illness and disabilities. In her article “Medical assistance in dying overused in Canada even before expansion,” Coelho explained how Canada’s euthanasia law has become the most permissive regime in the world.

Zero problem with assisted suicide - I would take that option if I had a terminal illness or dementia.  but...  The article lists a few examples of this gone wrong. It then outlines how - like any bureaucracy - MAiD is looking to expand its scope:

Canada’s MAiD law currently allows suicide facilitation for persons with disabilities and is on track to expand in March 2023 to those living with mental illness. The first report of the federal special joint committee on MAiD suggests it will not only ignore all the problems caused by MAiD, but also further entrench and expand MAiD in Canada.

Just wonderful - Uncle Albert is getting troublesome.  Let's hand him over to the Doctors - they will take care of him...

North Korea reports outbreak of unidentified disease alongside COVID-19
North Korea has dispatched medical crews and epidemiological investigators to a province battling the outbreak of an intestinal disease, state media reported on Sunday.

At least 800 families suffering from what North Korea has only called an "acute enteric epidemic" have received aid in South Hwanghae Province so far.

Enteric refers to the gastrointestinal tract and South Korean officials say it may be cholera or typhoid.

The new outbreak, first reported on Thursday, puts further strain on the isolated country as it battles chronic food shortages and a wave of COVID-19 infections.

Not good.

Interesting long screed:   Blaylock RL. COVID UPDATE: What is the truth?. Surg Neurol Int 22-Apr-2022;13:167

COVID UPDATE: What is the truth?
The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the most manipulated infectious disease events in history, characterized by official lies in an unending stream led by government bureaucracies, medical associations, medical boards, the media, and international agencies. We have witnessed a long list of unprecedented intrusions into medical practice, including attacks on medical experts, destruction of medical careers among doctors refusing to participate in killing their patients and a massive regimentation of health care, led by non-qualified individuals with enormous wealth, power and influence.

For the first time in American history a president, governors, mayors, hospital administrators and federal bureaucrats are determining medical treatments based not on accurate scientifically based or even experience based information, but rather to force the acceptance of special forms of care and “prevention”—including remdesivir, use of respirators and ultimately a series of essentially untested messenger RNA vaccines. For the first time in history medical treatment, protocols are not being formulated based on the experience of the physicians treating the largest number of patients successfully, but rather individuals and bureaucracies that have never treated a single patient—including Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, EcoHealth Alliance, the CDC, WHO, state public health officers and hospital administrators.

The media (TV, newspapers, magazines, etc), medical societies, state medical boards and the owners of social media have appointed themselves to be the sole source of information concerning this so-called “pandemic”. Websites have been removed, highly credentialed and experienced clinical doctors and scientific experts in the field of infectious diseases have been demonized, careers have been destroyed and all dissenting information has been labeled “misinformation” and “dangerous lies”, even when sourced from top experts in the fields of virology, infectious diseases, pulmonary critical care, and epidemiology. These blackouts of truth occur even when this information is backed by extensive scientific citations from some of the most qualified medical specialists in the world. Incredibly, even individuals, such as Dr. Michael Yeadon, a retired ex-Chief Scientist, and vice-president for the science division of Pfizer Pharmaceutical company in the UK, who charged the company with making an extremely dangerous vaccine, is ignored and demonized. Further, he, along with other highly qualified scientists have stated that no one should take this vaccine.

And yeah - in this vein for almost 80 more paragraphs and several bullet lists.  All backed up with 74 links to hard data.  Covid is out there.  It is something to be careful with.  It is not a killer pandemic (unless you live in an NY State Retirement home or have a pre-existing co-morbidity)  Covid was a useful tool for the globalists to flex their muscles and for pharma to make a lot of money.  That is all.  End of story.

Remember the Swine flu epidemic of 2009?  Worse than Covid with 270K hospitalizations and over 12K deaths (back then, they were still counting deaths FROM H1N1 then, not deaths WITH as we did with Covid — big difference...)  This happened under Obama's watch and was bungled. Fauci was in the limelight.

The media?


Their jab was a real shit-show.  Some data on miscarraiges coming out that looks really bad.
The class-action lawsuits will be interesting.  I did not get the jab - I know enough biology to not like what they were doing with the vax and their testing was a joke. 
But it's an emergency doncha know...


From Forbes magazine - November 23rd, 2020:

Here’s What You Need To Know About AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 Vaccine
Pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca and its partner Oxford University released preliminary results from its phase 3 Covid-19 vaccine trials on Monday, which found that the company’s vaccine, which uses a genetically modified cold virus, is up to 90% effective. This makes AstraZeneca the third to announce preliminary data from its phase 3 trials, after Moderna and Pfizer released results from their phase 3 trials earlier this month. Both Moderna and Pfizer, whose vaccines use an mRNA platform, found their vaccines to be about 95% effective. The AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine showed a somewhat lower efficacy, but is less expensive and poses fewer issues involved in distribution and administration.

A bit more:

The AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine is a chimpanzee adenovirus-vectored vaccine. This means that the company took a virus that normally infects chimpanzees, and genetically modified to avoid any possible disease consequences in people. This modified virus carries a portion of the Covid-19 coronavirus called the “spike protein.” When the vaccine is delivered into human cells, it triggers an immune response against the spike protein, producing antibodies and memory cells that will be able to recognize the virus that causes Covid-19.  

So we already know that vaccinated people have weaker immune systems and that the majority of coof cases are in people who have recieved more than one jab. Now this? Monkeypox anyone?

What happens when people act on a first-order problem and do not consider that there might be second- and third-order consequences down the road.  From Reuters:

Almost 200 cases of unexplained acute hepatitis reported in children
Around 190 unexplained cases of severe hepatitis have been reported in children around the world, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control said on Tuesday.

The outbreak was first reported this month in Britain - which has registered 111 cases, mostly in children under 10 - and has since been identified in at least 12 countries worldwide.

Some 40 cases have been recorded in the European Union and European Economic Area, ECDC director Andrea Ammon told reporters in a virtual briefing.

The United States and Israel have also seen cases.

That is the first four paragraphs of the article - let's scroll down to paragraph nine:

She said a theory that COVID-19 lockdowns may have weakened children's immunity, because they were less exposed to common pathogens while in isolation, was one of several being considered.

BINGO!!!  Our immune systems require constant challenges.  If we isolate.  If we place ourselves in a bubble and constantly sterilize ourselves and our environment, we weaken our immune system and the first case of a common cold will lay us out flat if not outright kill us.

The virus causing these infections is a common one — an adenovirus — not hepatitis.

From the New York Post:

NY, Calif. failed in handling of COVID — but Florida was among best
New York, New Jersey and California failed in their handling of the COVID-19 pandemic because of stringent lockdowns and policies, while Florida was among the best-performing states in the country, a new study has found.

The study, published by the Committee To Unleash Prosperity, graded states by comparing COVID-19 outcomes based on the number of deaths, the economy and impact on education.

Overall, the bottom 10 on the study’s “report card” were dominated by states that had the most severe pandemic lockdowns and were among the last to finally reopen schools.

“Shutting down their economies and schools was by far the biggest mistake governors and state officials made during COVID, particularly in blue states,” Stephen Moore, one of the study’s authors and co-founder of the Committee To Unleash Prosperity, said Monday.

The report can be found here: "A Final Report Card on the States’ Response to COVID-19"

Pretty damning to those advocating masks and social distancing and lockdowns. Herd immunity works.
Top-down control does not.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has tested positive for COVID-19, his office announced Sunday.

The Democrat woke up on Saturday with a "raspy voice," and, out of an "abundance of caution," he took a PCR test that came back positive, according to a statement from his team.

Nothing about Vitamin D, Zinc and other supplements for general health as well as a monthly dose of Ivermectin for it's well known and well documented anti-viral properties.

I take Ivermectin once/month two doses a day apart.  I also do this if I feel that I have been exposed to something (near someone with a wet cough)  Have not caught the Wuhan Flu but, more importantly, have not caught a cold or anything in over two years.  I have had two days where I was feeling under the weather but I felt fine in 2-3 days and never had any symptoms (anosmia, fever, etc...), just a sense of malaise.  That my body was fighting something off.

Had the Polio vax as a kid.  Never caught it.
Had the MMR vax.  Never caught it.
Stay current on my Tetanus vax.  Never caught it.
Got the Shingles vax.  Never caught it.

That is what vaccines do. Period. End of discussion.

From The Epoch Times:

Pfizer Hired 600 Employees Due to ‘Large Increase of Adverse Event Reports’
Pfizer hired 600 employees in the months after its COVID-19 vaccine was authorized in the United States due to the “large increase” of reports of side effects linked to the vaccine, according to a document prepared by the company.

Pfizer has “taken a multiple actions to help alleviate the large increase of adverse event reports,” according to the document. “This includes significant technology enhancements, and process and workflow solutions, as well as increasing the number of data entry and case processing colleagues.”

At the time when the document—from the first quarter of 2021—was sent to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Pfizer had onboarded about 600 extra full-time workers to deal with the jump.

“More are joining each month with an expected total of more than 1,800 additional resources by the end of June 2021,” Pfizer said.

The document was titled a “cumulative analysis of post-authorization adverse event reports” of Pfizer’s vaccine received through Feb. 28, 2021. It was approved by the FDA on April 30, 2021.

The document was not made public until the Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency sued the FDA after the agency claimed it needed decades to produce all the documents relating to the emergency use authorization granted to the company for the vaccine.

We would never know if not for the FOIA suit against them. What else is there.  Why are they scrambling to do such a broad cover-up.

As they say: Change my mind...

Comprehensive analysis of Foo Fighter's Taylor Hawkins' death from Steve Kirsh:

Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins dead at 50: The inside story on what likely caused his death
Here is a summary of the evidence I’ve pieced together from both public and private sources (who knew him personally).

You can draw your own conclusions. The evidence is consistent with the primary cause being vaccine-induced myocarditis. It fits the facts like a glove. No other hypothesis I’m aware of can explain the evidence. His drug use, which as far as I have been able to determine was limited to smoking weed, played only a minor role.

All the stuff I love - links to data, corroborating information and a logical thought process.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck...

I am very interested in herbalism and various alternative medicines.  Our western tradition is great but there is a lot out there that they are not looking at.  Add to this the craven profit-driven actions of the "Big Pharma" and you have a recipe for mis-diagnosis and improper treatment.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of practitioners who make unwise claims and who really muddy the waters for those trying to do real alternative medicine.  One of them just got taken down.

From the United States Department of Justice — U.S. Attorney’s Office Western District of Washington:

Former Port Angeles, Washington, Naturopath sentenced for scheme to profit on ‘COVID-19 cure’
A former Port Angeles, Washington, naturopathic physician was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Tacoma to 8 months in prison and one year of supervised release for a federal felony related to his misbranding, and sale in interstate commerce, of products he claimed could prevent and treat numerous serious diseases, including COVID-19 and MRSA, announced U.S. Attorney Nicholas W. Brown. Richard Marschall, 69, was convicted in October 2021, following a 4-day trial. The jury found Marschall guilty of Introduction of Misbranded Drugs into Interstate Commerce, his third conviction for the same crime following earlier prosecutions in 2011 and 2017. At the sentencing hearing U.S. District Judge Benjamin H. Settle said, “It is extremely dangerous during the COVID epidemic for people to be engaged in conduct that would lead other people to defer and wait to receive medical care.”

“Mr. Marschall has a history of lying to patients about their health and his proposed treatments. His lies in this case are particularly troubling because he employed them when advising others about a deadly pandemic,” said U.S. Attorney Nick Brown. “As people became fearful and searched for answers, Marschall touted an unproven treatment as a miracle cure for the deadly disease. Such conduct can prevent patients from getting the legitimate treatment they need if they become ill.”

Full details at the site.  His liscence had been revoked a few years prior yet he was still practicing. 
This is his third Federal conviction.  More at Quackwatch (October28th, 2021):

Government Actions against Richard A. Marschall, N.D.
Naturopath Richard A, Marschall operated the Natural Healing Clinic in Port Angeles, Washington. for many years. In 1998, the Washington Board of Naturopathy disciplined him for unprofessional conduct that involved treating an out-of-state patient he had not examined for “functional hypothyroidism”—an alleged condition sometimes referred to as “Wilson’s Syndrome.” In 2010, Marschall was criminally convicted of illegally marketing a growth hormone product (HCG) for weight loss. In 2013, in response to this conviction, the board disciplined him again. In 2015, he surrendered his naturopathic license. In 2017, he was convicted again for illegally marketing HCG. In 2018, in response to this conviction, the board revoked his license with no right to reapply for it. In 2021, he was convicted of a federal felony related to his attempts to promote a misbranded drug as a prevention for COVID-19. This article describes these enforcement actions in detail.

Wilson's Syndrome is bunk. 60+ symptoms described by one doctor and "aleviated" with "a special thyroid hormone treatment"   Again, more at that site too.  People like Marschall are giving alternative medicine a bad name.

Some good observations from lawyer Jeff Childers this morning.
From an email:

Yesterday I reported on the untimely, sudden and unexpected death of 50-year-old Foo Fighters’ drummer Taylor Hawkins, which is now creating controversy. Also yesterday, following a preliminary autopsy, Columbia’s attorney general issued a statement claiming that no fewer than TEN psychoactive and recreational drugs were found in Hawkins’ system, including pot, antidepressants, benzodiazepines, LSD, cocaine, heroin, and opoids. Basically the entire list. According to Columbian officials, he was a walking pharmacy.

So, for a brief moment, it looked like just another sad stereotypical “rock star overdoses on drugs” story.

But some facts didn’t seem to fit the overdose narrative, and now there’s a controversy brewing. First, the Columbians didn’t release a cause of death, despite finding all those drugs. Next, Columbian newspaper Semana reported that the autopsy also revealed Hawkins’ heart was enlarged, weighing over 600 grams, twice the weight of an average adult male’s heart. According to Semana, local officials said the drummer’s enlarged heart must have played some part in his death.

Next, the Daily Mail reported that witnesses at his hotel said Hawkins called the front desk for help due to “chest pain” before being found dead in his room when help arrived. The fact that father-of-three Hawkins called the desk and communicated intelligently about his condition, asked clearly for medical assistance, lucidly described concerns related to his heart — not issues typically related to overdosing, has generated some skepticism in the developing official story.

Next, a compelling recent interview video shows Hawkins discussing his health, his kids, the demands of touring, and saying he lives a normal, boring, healthy lifestyle. He said he doesn’t go to parties and his family doesn’t “live that kind of Hollywood rockstar life.” He says he doesn’t hang out with actors, is an avid cycler, and admits if he could just quit smoking he would be “the picture of health.”

Finally, alert readers pointed out this is the second sudden, unexpected tragedy for the band in under a year. Last June, the Foo Fighter’s stage manager, Andrew Pollard, also died suddenly and unexpectedly. The 45-year-old father of two young children, Arlo and Ren, was — ironically — also found dead in his hotel room after retiring for the night. Pollard’s death came just a few weeks after the band began requiring proof of vaccination for fans to attend its concerts.

Being in the Foo Fighters — a band that has been stable for over 20 years — is starting to look like it might be bad for your health, for some reason. Or possibly like a real-life game of Clue. Did they check whether Mrs. Green was in the Library with the Candlestick?

Some very good questions there...

Expecting nothing less from big pharma and our putative elites - from FOX News:

COVID-19 rapid test recalled for 'high number' of false positive reports
The Food and Drug Administration announced Wednesday that a healthcare company has recalled 45,500 COVID-19 rapid tests due to a "high number of false positive reports."

Pharmaceutical company Celltrion USA announced on Feb. 28 it is recalling specific lots of the DiaTrust COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test due to the high number of false-positive reports, an FDA recall webpage read on Wednesday.

Should never have left the shipping dock if there was the slightest chance of error or doubt. And the investigation and fines?  Not holding my breath...

From Tom's Hardware:

'China's Silicon Valley' Locked Down, Could Affect Supply Chains
The Chinese government has acted decisively today to try and stem a Covid-19 outbreak in Shenzhen, a city of 17.5 million people that borders Hong Kong. The metropolis has now gone into total lockdown, which means people must work at home if they can; otherwise, all businesses must "suspend production." Shenzhen is a well-known tech and finance hub, and impacts on the former may send a shock through the IT industry supply chain.

Commodities analyst Eric Yeung shared the official notice from the Shenzhen Epidemic Prevention and Control Department. He also commented, "RIP US supply chain." The message says that essential organizations delivering medical, food, and fuel supplies may continue, but all non-essential businesses and services must close. The lockdown, started today, has a preliminary end date of March 20. However, the lockdown experience suggests the government can shift the date further into the month.

The Associated Press has more background on the lockdown and the period leading up to China's entire Shenzhen lockdown decision. It notes that 60 new cases of Covid were recorded in Shenzhen on Sunday, and this number was sufficient to nudge the government to implement a complete lockdown.

And from 9TO5 MAC:

Foxconn halts iPhone factory operations in China due to COVID lockdown
Foxconn, one of Apple’s major suppliers, has halted operations in Shenzhen, China, due to a lockdown imposed by the local government following a new COVID-19 outbreak. There, the Taiwanese company has factories responsible for assembling iPhones and other Apple products.

As reported by Bloomberg, the lockdown has led Foxconn to suspend operations at two of its campuses in Shenzhen. To reduce the impact of the lockdown, the company has relocated production to other sites that are still operating regularly. The lockdown is expected to last until March 20.

Lockdown is short - ending March 20th but still.  This is a bit drastic for something that is about as serious as a bad cold...

Ivermectin and COVID - the coverup

| No Comments

Not just a "horse de-wormer" - Ivermectin's anti-viral properties are well established.  It is also cheap and harmless to mammals so even if it does not work, it will do no harm and cost pennies. I have some and have been taking a dose every other week - have not had a cold or any other illness in two years.  Works for me.

From Rumble: A Letter to Andrew Hill

Dr. Hill is a useful idiot for big pharma.  Video is really damning against him and against the whole big-pharma medical establishment. They did it for the money, not for the healing.

Funny how he completely dropped off the face of the planet.
Here is the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases website for his Press Statements:


Go to the site and you can see three press releases for 02/17/2022, three for 02/16/2022, a scattering of releases (four total) for the first two weeks of February and then back to a couple/day before then.  It's like he was really actively promoting himself up through the end of January 2022, he was taken offline for two weeks at the beginning of February, surfaced for a few days around the middle of the month and then has dropped clean out of sight since then.

What happened? He was such an easy target to poke fun at — especially given his history of (mis)managing the AIDS epidemic. Kind of miss the little guy...

Interesting paper from English website The Expose:

Whilst you’ve been distracted by Russia’s Invasion, the UK Gov. released a Report confirming the Fully Vaccinated now account for 9 in every 10 Covid-19 Deaths in England
The latest data published by the UK Health Security Agency confirms deaths are rising dramatically among the triple vaccinated population whilst declining steadily among the not-vaccinated population in England.

With the most recent figures showing the fully vaccinated accounted for 9 in every 10 Covid-19 deaths over the past month; and the triple vaccinated accounted for 4 in every 5 of them.

Pretty damning stuff - the numbers are plain to see.
Here is the paper: COVID-19 vaccine surveillance report

Gotta push the vaccines.  Can't have a sucessful treatment.
From the Office of Ron DeSantis:

Governor DeSantis Condemns Biden Administration’s Haphazard Decision to Revoke Authorization of Lifesaving Monoclonal Antibody Treatments
Governor Ron DeSantis is demanding the Biden Administration reverse its sudden and reckless decision to revoke emergency use authorization (EUA) for Regeneron and Eli Lilly monoclonal antibody treatments. This abrupt and unilateral action by the Biden Administration will prevent access to lifesaving treatments for Floridians and Americans.

“Without a shred of clinical data to support this action, Biden has forced trained medical professionals to choose between treating their patients or breaking the law,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “This indefensible edict takes treatment out of the hands of medical professionals and will cost some Americans their lives. There are real-world implications to Biden’s medical authoritarianism – Americans’ access to treatments is now subject to the whims of a failing president.”

“Rather than giving Americans the option for various COVID treatments, the FDA and the Biden Administration issued their royal decree, taking away the very thing that is proven to reduce hospitalizations and save lives,” said Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez. “Monoclonal antibody treatments like Regeneron have had a positive impact for thousands of Floridians. For the CDC and FDA, which have been consistently inconsistent throughout the entire pandemic, to restrict treatment does nothing but put individuals at risk.”

More at the site.  Monoclonal Antibodies work.  The track record is proven.  Why?  Because Moderna and Pfizer are not making a profit.
