A voice of reason - the Wuhan Flu

| No Comments

Excellent editorial from The Brownstone Institute but it gets better;
check out the authors' CVs:

The Emergency Must Be Ended, Now
The time has come to terminate the pandemic state of emergency. It is time to end the controls, the closures, the restrictions, the plexiglass, the stickers, the exhortations, the panic-mongering, the distancing announcements, the ubiquitous commercials, the forced masking, the vaccine mandates.

We don’t mean that the virus is gone – omicron is still spreading wildly, and the virus may circulate forever. But with a normal focus on protecting the vulnerable, we can treat the virus as a medical rather than a social matter and manage it in ordinary ways. A declared emergency needs continuous justification, and that is now lacking.

What follows is a very reasoned explanation and they close with these lines:

Given that omicron, with its mild infection, is running its course to the end, there is no justification for maintaining emergency status. The lockdowns, personnel firings and shortages and school disruptions have done at least as much damage to the population’s health and welfare as the virus.

The state of emergency is not justified now, and it cannot be justified by fears of a hypothetical recurrence of some more severe infection at some unknown point in the future. If such a severe new variant were to occur – and it seems unlikely from omicron – then that would be the time to discuss a declaration of emergency.

Americans have sacrificed enough of their human rights and of their livelihoods for two years in the service of protecting the general public health. Omicron is circulating but it is not an emergency. The emergency is over. The current emergency declaration must be canceled. It is time.

The authors have pretty awesome curriculum vitae:

  • Harvey Risch is Professor of Epidemiology in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the Yale School of Public Health and Yale School of Medicine.
  • Jay Bhattacharya, Senior Scholar of Brownstone Institute, is a Professor of Medicine at Stanford University.
  • Dr. Paul Alexander is an epidemiologist focusing on clinical epidemiology, evidence-based medicine, and research methodology.

I am willing to bet good money that these people know what they are taking about...

Mark Cuban has done it again:  CostPlus Drug Company
From their mission statement:

A letter from Mark Cuban
We started Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company because every American should have access to safe, affordable medicines. If you don’t have insurance or have a high deductible plan, you know that even the most basic medications can cost a fortune. Many people are spending crazy amounts of money each month just to stay healthy. No American should have to suffer or worse - because they can’t afford basic prescription medications.

If you are fortunate enough to have health insurance with a low deductible, the high cost of drugs is driving up the premiums that you or your employer pay, making getting health insurance expensive and challenging.

The Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company takes these problems head on.

This page has a list of what they carry, the MSRP and their cost.  You do have to pay cash out of pocket - they do not go through insurance companies but, with these prices? Zero problem.

Most problems have simple causes - this one?  For this city?
From Oregon Public Broadcasting:

Oregon demands quick fix to high lead levels in Portland’s water
Since the late 1990s, Portland has exceeded the federal safety threshold for lead 11 times

It’s been six years since Dr. Marc Edwards first identified toxic levels of lead in the water in Flint, Michigan.

Since then, the Virginia Tech Professor, credited alongside his colleague with calling the world’s attention to a brewing water crisis in Flint, has grown bewildered by lead levels in a different city: Portland, Oregon.

Edwards, who specializes in water treatment, is blunt: “This is worse than Flint.”

Lead?  From the Environmental Protection Agency:

Even low levels of lead in the blood of children can result in:

    • Behavior and learning problems
    • Lower IQ and Hyperactivity

Certainly seems to describe many of the Portland denizens - both in cerebral function and in maturity.

Some words from a Hospital Nurse with 17 years experience - there is a lot out there that is simply not being reported. Pfizer and Fauci have way too much power here.

And this is the testimony of one Nurse working at one hospital.  How many more people are thinking the same thing but keeping quiet for fear of their jobs, their families, their career.  The pendulum IS going to swing back and there will be repercussions.  The people who stand up NOW to say no will be saving the lives of hundreds of people if not tens of thousands.

From our very own Centers for Disease Control:

Characteristics and Clinical Outcomes of Children and Adolescents Aged <18 Years Hospitalized with COVID-19 — Six Hospitals, United States, July–August 2021

Summary
What is already known about this topic?
Pediatric COVID-19–related hospitalization rates increased when the highly transmissible SARS-CoV-2 B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant became the predominant circulating strain.

What is added by this report?
Among children and adolescents with SARS-CoV-2 infection admitted to six hospitals during July–August 2021, 77.9% were hospitalized for acute COVID-19. Among these patients, approximately one third aged <5 years had a viral coinfection (approximately two thirds of which were respiratory syncytial virus) and approximately two thirds of those aged 12–17 years had obesity; only 0.4% of age-eligible patients were fully vaccinated.

So 1/3rd tested positive for Covid but also tested positive for a second different virus of which 2/3rds were respiratory viruses.  On top of that, 2/3rds of the patients were obese.  Obesity seems to be a determining factor in all age ranges.  Don't want the Wuhan Flu?  Loose weight.

Of course, there is also a reason for the push for childhood vaccinations - one of liability for the manufacturers.  This post has those details: Vaccinating children - not a good thing to do    It is nothing about public health and everything about liability for the pharma corporations.

Curious video - from 90 Miles:

More on Human Coronavirus 229E can be found here:

Human Coronaviruses 229E, OC43, NL63, and HKU1
HCoVs 229E, OC43, NL63, and HKU1 are commonly associated with the common cold, which is typically characterized by rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, sore throat, sneezing, and cough that may be associated with fever.  Together, the HCoVs are the second most common cause of the common cold after rhinoviruses.

Based on data for HCoV-229E, symptoms typically peak on day 3 or 4 of illness and are self-limited.  HCoVs also may be associated with acute otitis media or exacerbations of asthma.  Less frequently, these viruses are associated with lower respiratory tract infections, including bronchiolitis and pneumonia, primarily in infants and immunocompromised children and adults.

Yeah - sent home in a panic for the common cold.  Bet you a dollar that this guy's diagnosis will go down as being COVID.  Keep inflating the numbers - after all, there's a pandemic on don'cha know...

This from Dr. Robert Malone — he is the person who developed the basic mRNA Vaccination technology.
He is personally vaccinated but the damage to children is just too great to recommend it.

From the website of the Florida Department of Health: Healthier You Florida

COVID-19: Optimize Your Health
Florida’s Innovative Response
Florida’s COVID-19 response includes statewide and grassroots initiatives to educate on prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

It is important to stay apprised of your health through routine physicals, cancer screenings, and by communicating with your health care provider.

And this is what caught my eye:

Prevention
Optimize your health by getting outside, staying active, and eating foods rich in vitamins and nutrients.

Vaccines continue to be widely available in Florida. For more information on eligibility and to find a vaccine near you, visit: FloridaHealthCOVID19.gov

Talk to your health care provider about how certain supplements or foods containing vitamins and minerals might help boost your immune system, such as:

Yeah - there are some vaccines but it is a matter of personal choice to take it or not.  Instead, let's look at prevention.  Let's look at improving your overall health and let's look at these suppliments that have been proven to help your immune system.

That is how you handle a pandemic...

How the narrative shifts - it simply does not work very well but they can not admit this.
To admit this would damage their credibility beyond repair:

But the small media outlets have no problem publishing a local "human interest" story.
And what is more "human interest" than heart attacks, clots and strokes. Lots of them.
From the Thousand Oaks, California Conejo Guardian:

More VC Nurses Blow Whistle on ‘Overwhelming’ Numbers of Heart Attacks, Clotting, Strokes
After the Conejo Guardian’s report on alarming trends in Ventura County hospitals, more nurses have come forward to affirm the rise in unexplained heart problems, strokes and blood clotting in local vaccinated patient populations. They also say doctors refuse to consider that these could be adverse reactions to Covid shots.

Sam, a critical care nurse at an ICU in a Ventura County hospital, came forward because, “I’m tired of all the B.S. that’s going on,” he told the Guardian. “It’s crazy how nobody questions anything anymore.”

But it does not fit the narrative:

“One doctor actually questioned the vaccine, but they didn’t mention it in the chart because you can’t prove it,” Sam says.

While hospitals are seeing more myocarditis, an associated side effect of the Covid shots, “Everyone wants to downplay it — ’It’s rare, it’s rare,’” Sam says. “Doctors don’t want to question it. We have these mass vaccinations happening and we’re seeing myocarditis more frequently and nobody wants to raise the red flag. When we discuss the case, they don’t even discuss it. They don’t mention it. They act like they don’t have a reason, that it’s spontaneous.”

Much more at the site - the Doctors are operating in denial.  If they admitted to themselves what they are doing, they would break down. They are complicit in this but they can not own up to it. For their own mental health.

When this breaks, it is going to break big.

Artificial sweeteners and alcohol are not good for you.
From the Journal of Molecular Nutrition and Food Research

Food and Microbiota Metabolites Associate with Cognitive Decline in Older Subjects: A 12-Year Prospective Study
Scope
Diet is considered an important modulator of cognitive decline and dementia, but the available evidence is, however, still fragmented and often inconsistent.

Methods and Results
The article studies the long-term prospective Three-City Cohort, which consists of two separate nested case-control sample sets from different geographic regions (Bordeaux, n = 418; Dijon, n = 424). Cognitive decline is evaluated through five neuropsychological tests (Mini-Mental State Examination, Benton Visual Retention Test, Isaac's Set Test, Trail-Making Test part A, and Trail-Making Test part B). The food-related and microbiota-derived circulating metabolome is studied in participants free of dementia at baseline, by subjecting serum samples to large-scale quantitative metabolomics analysis. A protective association is found between metabolites derived from cocoa, coffee, mushrooms, red wine, the microbial metabolism of polyphenol-rich foods, and cognitive decline, as well as a negative association with metabolites related to unhealthy dietary components, such as artificial sweeteners and alcohol.

Conclusion
These results provide insight into the early metabolic events that are associated with the later risk to develop cognitive decline within the crosstalk between diet, gut microbiota and the endogenous metabolism, which can help identify potential targets for preventive and therapeutic strategies to preserve cognitive health.

Got to love that last line in the Methods and Results:

A protective association is found between metabolites derived from cocoa, coffee, mushrooms, red wine, the microbial metabolism of polyphenol-rich foods, and cognitive decline, as well as a negative association with metabolites related to unhealthy dietary components, such as artificial sweeteners and alcohol.

Polyphenol-rich foods are your basic fruits and veggies.  Bonus points if you go for the colored ones - orange cauliflower instead of white.  Purple sweet potatoes instead of a russet spud. Three cheers for coffee...

About that Pfizer FOIA data

The Freedom of Information Act proceeding that was filed against Pfizer?
The one that they said would take them 50+ years to comply?
They released some information and even that contains quite the bombshell.

They knew their vaccine was not ready for prime time.  They knew that it was killing people.
An interview of Alberta, CA  Doctor Daniel Nagase by Melanie Risdon of The Western Standard
From BitChute:

Amazing that nobody at Pfizer stepped up and blew the whistle on this.

It is not the Wuhan Flu, it is centralized government inefficiency.
From Seattle station KING5 News:

Washington hospitals beyond full but not because of COVID-19 patients
The Washington health care system continues to be strapped for beds, staffing and all-around occupancy as the COVID-19 pandemic heads toward its third year.

But hospital leaders aren’t blaming COVID-19 patients for current occupancy issues, which have several major hospitals at or near 120% occupancy.

And the real reason:

Executive Vice President of the Washington State Hospital Association (WSHA) Taya Briley explained the situation during a Monday briefing.

“Our hospitals are bursting at the seams,” she said. “But they're not filled with COVID-19 patients. Remarkably, they are filled with patients who do not need hospital care.”

Briley described the patients that hospitals can’t be moved out of hospitals as those who have “complex, long-term care needs,” for which a facility can’t be found due to staffing shortages.

Additionally, Briley said the process for patients to get evaluated and placed in facilities outside of a hospital by the state’s Medicaid program can take weeks and months.

Also, some of these patients qualify for a post-hospital treatment facility for things like dementia or other mental health needs but they don’t have a family member authorized to consent to their transfer.

Not Covid at all. More at the site. Very rare for this to be reported in the mainstream media.

From Oxford Academic's Journal of Clinical Infectious Diseases:

Epidemiology of Acute Myocarditis/Pericarditis in Hong Kong Adolescents Following Comirnaty Vaccination
Age-specific incidence of acute myocarditis/pericarditis in adolescents following Comirnaty vaccination in Asia is lacking. This study aimed to study the clinical characteristics and incidence of acute myocarditis/pericarditis among Hong Kong adolescents following Comirnaty vaccination.

Their numbers and data collection look rock solid.  Their conclusion?

Conclusions
There is a significant increase in the risk of acute myocarditis/pericarditis following Comirnaty vaccination among Chinese male adolescents, especially after the second dose.

It is amazing that people are still pushing these vaccines after all the published deaths and injuries.  Goes against everything a real Doctor stands for.  First do no harm (and here).

And the answer is?

Our Public Health agencies have betrayed our trust by playing partisan politics.
It will take a long time before the average US citizen will believe them again.

61 Ivermectin studies with positive results
299 Hydroxychloroquine studies with positive results

We need this mask - now

From 90 Miles:

20211205-mask.jpg

But the pharma corporations need to make their billions - got to keep the stockholders happy.
From Facui's own National Institutes of Health:

Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread
Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is caused by a newly discovered coronavirus (SARS-CoV). No effective prophylactic or post-exposure therapy is currently available.

Results
We report, however, that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage. In addition to the well-known functions of chloroquine such as elevations of endosomal pH, the drug appears to interfere with terminal glycosylation of the cellular receptor, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2. This may negatively influence the virus-receptor binding and abrogate the infection, with further ramifications by the elevation of vesicular pH, resulting in the inhibition of infection and spread of SARS CoV at clinically admissible concentrations.

So Hydroxychloroquine is a very valid prophylactic against the Wuhan Flu.

This being near the first of the month, I took dose one of my monthly Ivermectin prophylaxis. Another one tomorrow - got the injectable version which can be taken orally as well.  1ml per 100lbs bodyweight. Been completely healthy for the last two years - no coof, no colds, no flu.

There is a version which is formulated for pouring over the back of an animal.  That dose gets absorbed through the skin - use that if you want to not do an injection. The pour-over version is NOT for internal consumption and I am betting that the recorded cases of people getting sick are from idiots swallowing this version instead of the horse paste or the injectable.

The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment. The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs, or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.

It applies - especially given the experimental classification of the vax.  What is this text from?

Here: The Nuremberg Code (1947) and there are nine more items listed.

A very understandable fear

Google it - it's a thing (actually, the link goes to DuckDuckGo but it's a thing there too).

From The Lancet:

The epidemiological relevance of the COVID-19-vaccinated population is increasing
High COVID-19 vaccination rates were expected to reduce transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in populations by reducing the number of possible sources for transmission and thereby to reduce the burden of COVID-19 disease. Recent data, however, indicate that the epidemiological relevance of COVID-19 vaccinated individuals is increasing.

And the two take-aways:

In Israel a nosocomial outbreak was reported involving 16 healthcare workers, 23 exposed patients and two family members. The source was a fully vaccinated COVID-19 patient. The vaccination rate was 96.2% among all exposed individuals (151 healthcare workers and 97 patients). Fourteen fully vaccinated patients became severely ill or died, the two unvaccinated patients developed mild disease.

And:

Many decisionmakers assume that the vaccinated can be excluded as a source of transmission. It appears to be grossly negligent to ignore the vaccinated population as a possible and relevant source of transmission when deciding about public health control measures.

No shit Sherlock...  No, the vaccinated are not safe, they are the worst of the worst of the carriers. They are the disease.

Nosocomial?  An infection that is contracted from the environment or staff of a healthcare facility.

One of the most common ways to die - #3 from what I heard if you include both nosocomial and iatrogenic:

"Iatrogenesis (from the Greek for "brought forth by the healer") refers to any effect on a person, resulting from any activity of one or more persons acting as healthcare professionals or promoting products or services as beneficial to health, that does not support a goal of the person affected"

Want to stay healthy? Eat right, monitor your own health and use physicians as a last resort.

He asks you to hold his beer and watch this - Gateway Pundit:

Forgotten Monument to Dead Orphans from Fauci’s Torturous and Deadly AIDS Testing Is Located in New York State — HEART-BREAKING PHOTOS
In August Gateway Pundit contributor Cassandra Fairbanks broke the story on Dr. Fauci’s use of taxpayer money to torture beagles in barbaric animal testing. Dr. Fauci funded a study in Tunisia where beagle dogs were eaten alive by parasite-infected flies.

Dr. Fauci also spent over $16 million in taxpayer funds on disturbing “toxic brain injection” experiments on monkeys in 2018.

Dr. Fauci more recently was caught funding gain-of-function research in a Wuhan, China laboratory blamed for the production and leak of the coronavirus.
Fauci lied about his funding of the lab under oath numerous times.

But Dr. Fauci’s sinister work does not stop there.
Fauci has a long history of mass death, barbarism and lies.

Not the thing to be reading early in the morning.  Here are just a few tastes:

The Fauci NIH approved experiments on hundreds of New York City orphans.  Government agencies and pharmaceutical companies used the orphans in deadly AIDS drug trials.

And:

These children were buried in mass graves at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Hawthorne, NY in Westchester County and otherwise forgotten.

And:

Children who refused to take Fauci’s drugs had feeding tubes installed so drug companies could administer the drugs even when the kids fought back.

Much more at the site.  This is the guy who is the director of our National Institute of Health and who pulls down almost a half-million per year as a salary.  Rope.  Tree. Assembly required.

Just one more example of the pure evil that is walking this Earth.
It needs to be rebuked and purged. Sent back to the hell it came from.

About that vax - schadenfreude

From TMZ/Sports:

TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 ... Will Miss Several Games
TMZ Sports has learned ... LeBron James tested positive for COVID-19 this afternoon using a lateral flow test. James was given a follow-up PCR test to confirm the diagnosis. However, that test came back negative. LeBron was then given a third tie-breaker test ... which came back positive.

We're told the team has chartered a private jet so Bron can fly back to Los Angeles in a safe manner.

We're also told James is currently asymptomatic. LeBron is fully vaccinated.

But it works and everyone needs to get it.  Fifty bucks says that LBJ got a saline shot instead of the vax - would not be a good optic if he collapsed during a game.

Schadenfreude?  A German word - a good one to know these days:

Schadenfreude is pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others. This word is taken from German and literally means "harm-joy". It is the feeling of joy or pleasure when one sees another fail or suffer misfortune. It is also borrowed by some other languages. An English term of similar meaning (but with no noun equivalent) is "to gloat"; which means to feel, or express, great, often malicious, pleasure, or self-satisfaction, at one's own success, or at another's failure.

A heartwarming story - Ivermectin

From Mary Beth Pfeiffer:

A Judge Stands up to a Hospital: "Step Aside" and Give a Dying Man Ivermectin
Sun Ng, a retired contractor from Hong Kong, traveled to Illinois to celebrate his only granddaughter’s first birthday. He got covid and was near death in a Chicago-area hospital. All other options were exhausted, but the hospital refused to give Mr. Ng a generic, FDA-approved drug with an extraordinary safety record that a doctor believed could safe his life.

Finally, a judge asked the right question about ivermectin.

“What’s the downside?”

And the upshot?

The hospital ultimately stepped aside. Dr. Alan Bain, an internist, administered a five-day course of 24 milligrams of ivermectin, from November 8 through November 12.

Ng, who with his wife, Ying, had come from Hong Kong to celebrate their granddaughter’s birthday, was able to breathe without a ventilator within five days—he, in fact, removed the endotracheal himself. He left the ICU Tuesday, November 16, and, although confused and weak, was breathing Sunday without supplemental oxygen on a regular hospital floor.

“Every day after ivermectin, there was accelerated and stable improvement,” said Dr. Bain, who administered the drug in two previous court cases after hospitals refused. “Three times we’ve shown something,” he told me. “There’s a signal of benefit for ventilator patients.”

Much more at the site.  Yeah - it does that.  I have some and take it prophylactically every month and also after potential exposure (if I am around someone with a bad cough). No Wuhan flu, no cold, no flu, no illness of any kind for a year and a half and I go out and am exposed to a lot of people every day.  Cheap and effective.  Doesn't make any money for Pfizer or Moderna so they are pushing against its use.

Words of truth - Omicron

| No Comments

From Ann Barnhardt:

I’ll say it: “Omicron” doesn’t exist. “Omicron” is the cover story for the poisoning deaths from the coerced injections, AND an excuse for Big Pharma to declare that everyone must start over and be injected with another brand-new poison
If you can’t see this OBVIOUS ploy, then… I don’t know what to tell you. This is so obvious that it is laughable.

“Omicron” has EXACTLY the same symptoms as the Poison DeathJabs, but ODDLY, no symptoms of a CoronaVirus cold – just heart damage, clotting, immune system destruction, miscarriages, etc. So, the more deaths and injuries there are from the DeathJabs, the more it feeds the “Omicron” fictional cover story, and the more there will be howling for an ENTIRELY NEW CYCLE OF DEATHJABS. The cover story not only “protects” the murderers, it makes every death they cause FEED AN INCREASE OF THEIR POWER.

THERE IS NO “OMICRON”.

Simple as that.

Makes sense - Covid rules in Canada

| No Comments

From Jordan Peterson - Summit News:

Government Adviser Told Me COVID Rules Based on Opinion Polls, Not Science
Jordan Peterson says he spoke to a senior government adviser who told him Canada’s COVID restriction policies are completely driven by opinion polls and not science.

“In relation to the COVID restrictions, I talked to a senior adviser to one of the provincial governments a couple of weeks ago,” said Peterson.

“He told me flat out that the COVID policy here is driven by nothing but opinion polls related to the popularity of the government,” he added.

“No science, no endgame in sight, no real plan, and so what that means is that the part of the population that is most afraid of COVID,” are driving the policy.

Peterson pointed to figures that prove people vastly exaggerate the risk of being hospitalized by COVID due to relentless government fearmongering campaigns.

The article cites public beliefs versus the actual numbers - here are three examples:

A poll in France showed that the average person thinks the infection to fatality ratio is over 16 per cent, when it is actually 0.1-0.3 per cent.

As we previously highlighted, a poll conducted in summer 2020 found that the average American believed 9 per cent of the population, around 30 million people, had died from coronavirus when the actual figure at the time was less than 155,000.

People in the U.S. also believed that 20% of Americans had caught coronavirus, 20 times higher than the number of confirmed cases.

Yeah - science...

Two months old - just ran across it thanks to Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man.
From NOQ Report:

Shocking Conclusions from Africa Study Expose Why Big Pharma’s Puppets are Suppressing Ivermectin Data
Joe Rogan, Kirstie Alley, and a handful of other celebrities have brought out the anti-Ivermectin wolves in America. Mainstream media is in full attack-mode. Big Tech is censoring posts to the point that people are coming up with creative ways to indicate they’re even talking about Ivermectin so as not to trigger the filters. The CDC claimed the drug was for horses only, neglecting to remove their own recommendations for people to take Ivermectin for other issues.

If the CDC is recommending what they deemed to be a “horse dewormer” to people traveling from Africa, does that mean the CDC is racist?

graph made its rounds on social media yesterday that raised some eyebrows. It showed the clear difference between countries in Africa that use Ivermectin regularly versus those that do not. The differences were startling as the Ivermectin-nations showed unambiguous advantages against Covid-19. The mortality rates were very low compared to countries that do not use Ivermectin on a wide scale.

A lot more at the site - links to corroborating data as well as further reading.

I can only offer anecdotal evidence but I come into contact with a lot of people every week, I have been taking it once every month and when exposed for the last two years and have had no illnesses except for two minor sore throats.  I suspect that these were due to my snoring.

It is odd that a Horse De-wormer would win the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine

A meme and two stories - Wuhan Flu

From 90 Miles:

20211104-informed.jpgAnd these two stories - Kaiser Health News (a part of Kaiser/Permanante's non-profit wing):

ERs Are Swamped With Seriously Ill Patients, Although Many Don’t Have Covid
Inside the emergency department at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, Michigan, staff members are struggling to care for patients showing up much sicker than they’ve ever seen.

Tiffani Dusang, the ER’s nursing director, practically vibrates with pent-up anxiety, looking at patients lying on a long line of stretchers pushed up against the beige walls of the hospital hallways. “It’s hard to watch,” she said in a warm Texas twang.

But there’s nothing she can do. The ER’s 72 rooms are already filled.

“I always feel very, very bad when I walk down the hallway and see that people are in pain, or needing to sleep, or needing quiet. But they have to be in the hallway with, as you can see, 10 or 15 people walking by every minute,” Dusang said.

And the illnesses:

Doctors and nurses say the severity of illness ranges widely and includes abdominal pain, respiratory problems, blood clots, heart conditions and suicide attempts, among other conditions.

Hmmmm...  Sound familiar?  How about this story from the Australian Broadcasting Company:

National Cabinet considers how to deal with an influx of COVID-19 patients, with hospitals already straining
There's something Mark McGowan would rather not talk about.

Mr McGowan, the most popular premier in the country, presides over a health system at breaking point and yet there's not a single case of COVID-19 right now in Western Australia.

Hundreds of non-urgent elective surgeries have been cancelled this month, while ambulance "ramping" — the hours patients in ambulances wait to be admitted into a hospital — has reached a record cumulative high of 6,000 in August.

So West Australians who have been patiently waiting for cataract surgery, for a new hip or knee, or an IVF procedure, are being asked to wait even longer because Perth's emergency departments are struggling.

Just so we are clear.  There is not a COVID problem in the hospitals at this time. The article is asking what would happen if a COVID outbreak manifested while the ERs were swamped. And what are they swamped with?

They do not say.  They also have this story from West Australia - again, no COVID cases but:

Fears over WA's COVID-19 readiness as grim hospital statistics revealed
One of Perth's major hospitals has declared internal emergencies almost once every five days because of extreme pressure on its ability to treat patients.

New figures, obtained by the state opposition, showed there were 490 "code yellows" in the health system in the 12 months to June this year.

Again, zero details on what these illnesses are.  I am willing to take a bet that they are the same as in the first story:

abdominal pain, respiratory problems, blood clots, heart conditions

All of these are the very well known symptoms of a bad reaction to the experimental vaccine.
The Vax is the disease - as simple as that.

The vaccine works - case # 347,281

From Associated Press:

LA mayor Garcetti tests positive for virus at climate summit
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti tested positive for COVID-19 Wednesday while attending the U.N. climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, an event that has drawn world leaders and tens of thousands of other people from around the world.

His office announced a positive test result in a tweet, adding only: “He is feeling good and isolating in his hotel room. He is fully vaccinated.”

Emphasis mine. And also, what is he doing over there?  This is not something a Mayor needs to be attending.  This is for scientists and policy wonks. He is living high on the taxpayer dime.

The Deluge...  From Newsweek:

How Fauci Fooled America
When the pandemic hit, America needed someone to turn to for advice. The media and public naturally looked to Dr. Anthony Fauci—the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, an esteemed laboratory immunologist and one of President Donald Trump's chosen COVID advisers. Unfortunately, Dr. Fauci got major epidemiology and public health questions wrong. Reality and scientific studies have now caught up with him.

Here are the key issues:

Natural immunity. By pushing vaccine mandates, Dr. Fauci ignores naturally acquired immunity among the COVID-recovered, of which there are more than 45 million in the United States. Mounting evidence indicates that natural immunity is stronger and longer lasting than vaccine-induced immunity. [Eds.: Long-term trends are still unclear. A recent study reached the opposite conclusion, but was criticized by an author of this op-ed.] In a study from Israel, the vaccinated were 27 times more likely to get symptomatic COVID than the unvaccinated who had recovered from a prior infection.

We have known about natural immunity from disease at least since the Athenian Plague in 430 BC. Pilots, truckers and longshoremen know about it, and nurses know it better than anyone. Under Fauci's mandates, hospitals are firing heroic nurses who recovered from COVID they contracted while caring for patients. With their superior immunity, they can safely care for the oldest and frailest patients with even lower transmission risk than the vaccinated.

More at the site.  For a centrist media outlet like Newsweek to publish something like this means that the wheels on the bus are already turning and the good Doctor's trajectory has already been plotted.  Under the bus he goes. Good riddance...

Tip of the hat to Don Surber for the link.

Heh - these stories write themselves

From FOX News:

Jen Psaki tests positive for COVID-19
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Sunday she has tested positive for COVID-19 despite being vaccinated.

"On Wednesday, in coordination with senior leadership at the White House and the medical team, I made the decision not to travel on the foreign trip with the President due to a family emergency, which was members of my household testing positive for COVID-19," Psaki said in a statement.

Works real good... Didn't she get booster shot #372    More likely, a shot of Lactated Ringer's (chances are too high to fsck around with the experimental vax) like Joe's (same thing) televised jabs (first, second, booster (this one at the fake white house)) - note that none of the technicians  will aspirate the syringe before plunging it home. From the site:

Aspiration means to draw breath, or air from a needle. This simple process can make a big impact though. It protects you from hitting a blood vessel or artery and accidentally injecting fluid into one, which can result in a variety of different side effects.

Nausea, coughing spells, dizzyness, increased heart rate, and in some cases, coma or death can occur as a result of not aspirating a needle properly. Aspirating a needle is a quick and easy process that should be performed prior to injecting. You should never skip it. Doing so puts your health at risk.

Sounds like some of the immediate side-effects from this particular vaccine.

Ivermectin in the news - Indonesia

| No Comments

From The Straits Times (published out of Singapore):

Indonesia distributes medicines for free as daily Covid-19 infections soar to 56,757
The Indonesian government on Thursday (July 15) began distributing free medicine and vitamins to self-isolating Covid-19 patients in high-risk areas as the highly transmissible Delta variant of the coronavirus continued to rip through the country, emptying pharmacy shelves.

In a broadcast via YouTube, President Joko Widodo said that, for a start, 300,000 packages would be distributed to those living in the worst-hit islands of Java and Bali, with another similar number elsewhere.

Each package will have seven days worth of therapeutic Covid-19 drugs and vitamins, and will be given to asymptomatic patients as well as those with mild to moderate symptoms including fever and dry cough. The medication for the latter group will require consultation with a doctor and a prescription.

And this little item is waaay down in the article:

Indonesia's food and drug agency has authorised ivermectin for emergency use against Covid-19, Reuters reported, although the World Health Organisation, as well as European and the US regulators did not recommend its use for Covid-19 patients.

Sounds like they are distributing these Indian kits:
