The 2020 Coronavirus

Introduction added 3/8/2020:
Sensationalism sells newspapers and keeps the teeming masses tuned to the most exciting cable TV news channels, whether or not the news contains any useful or factual information.  Hysteria sells even more newspapers; so at every opportunity, the cable TV news channels go with hysteria.  Especially if the so-called news coverage can be used for political leverage or weaponry.  As we have seen over and over, the claims of impending doom are false alarms, yet the public falls for it every time.  How many contagious diseases were supposed to have killed us all, or at least resulted in massive upheaval?  The bird flu was going to affect everybody, they said, as was AIDS, Ebola, Zika, West Nile virus, SARS, MERS, swine flu, acid rain, mad cow disease, stratospheric ozone depletion, second-hand smoke, fire ants, and so on.  Heres' how to eliminate TV news hysteria completely:  Take all of the television sets out of your house and leave them at the curb for the scavengers.  You will be surprised how much spare time you have, and very soon you'll quit worrying about contagious diseases in Africa and China.

In a way this coronavirus scare is a lot like the Y2K scare at the end of 1999.  At that time, the news media was full of baseless speculation about the worst-case possibilities, as if those were the most likely possibilities.  The endless sensationalism was somewhat tiresome, and, as it turned out, entirely unfounded.  But it served a purpose, and that was to keep the viewers agitated and glued to the TV.  The same thing is going on now.  The news media is having a field day with this virus outbreak, because it keeps the TV viewers hooked, and it might be a useful weapon to use against the President of the United States, whom the so-called journalists detest.

In my opinion, the government's response to the coronavirus is far more dangerous than the virus itself.  If the virus spreads all over town, it might affect everybody.  Shutting down restaurants and small businesses does affect everybody.  The severity of the government's response varies by state, as many things should, but state-wide curfews, shelter-in-place orders, and restrictions on worship services and peaceful assembly are ingredients for tyranny.  (And this won't be the last previously-unknown virus to emerge.)  The First Amendment to the Constitution guarantees the freedom of peaceful assembly.  The word emergency is not in the Constitution.  If the government is asking churches to close for a few weeks, that's one thing; but if it's a demand, that's something else.  In addition to all that, the crisis of the decade occupies the news media's full attention.  If there is anything else happening — that is, if the federal government is up to something else — you might not hear about it for weeks.

About 75 percent of the panic buying and sudden shortages is due to sensationalism in the news media; in particular, the cable TV news channels.  The other 25 percent is due to social media, and the fact that nearly every adult in America has a cell phone at hand 24 hours a day.  As I've said before, hysteria keeps you tuned in, hour after hour, and the cable TV news people are spreading fear in order to retain viewers and make money from advertising.  The poorly-educated and narcissistic hoarders (triggered by the news coverage) are a problem even worse than the government's heavy-handed control of the masses.  There are ways to deter selfish customers and small-time speculators from buying up all the toilet paper and hand cleaner.  Here's what I mean:  At Costco and Sam's, there are no anonymous purchases.  Every customer's purchases are in a database, along with that customer's address, phone number, and photograph.  In my opinion, anyone who has bought more than a few cases of bathroom tissue (or paper towels, or hand sanitizer) in the last 90 days is a hoarder, and that person's card should be permanently revoked.  Today.  Yes, even the speculators and resellers.  This action should be taken immediately, and the wholesalers should make a big publicity splash about it, because the rest of their customers want to see something done about the hoarders.  This technique could be used world-wide.  Moreover, hoarding could be detected and thwarted as soon as it develops.  The big-box wholesale stores have computerized inventory, and they should be able to see immediately when there is an unusual spike in the consumption of specific disaster-related supplies, and apply strict limits at once.  Ordinary grocery stores could do this, too.  There is a bar code on everything.  The computers know when there's a sudden demand for canned vegetables, or bottled water, or what have you, and with a little extra software, the stores could apply limits within a few minutes.

Remember, the higher an "Alert Level" goes, the more power the issuing agency gets; and once a tyrant tastes power, he is reluctant to give it back.  The longer this virus panic persists, the more likely the police state is to become a permanent fixture.

In this nation-wide madness, there are some silver linings and some (much larger) dark clouds:

Silver linings:  [#1] No school zones, much lighter freeway traffic, much cleaner air.  [#1A]  Much lower gasoline prices, partly because of reduced demand.  [#2] Playboy magazine is dead.  [#3] There is now a much greater awareness of the importance of hand-washing and cleanliness.  [#4] There is now a much greater awareness of just how low the power-hungry, baby-killing Democrats will stoop, in an effort to overthrow President Donald Trump.  [#5] After this, the mother of all news media false alarms, the general public will finally share my skepticism of the news media, the U.S. government, and the Chinese Communists.

Dark Clouds: [#1] Ben Franklin was right:  "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."  The poorly-educated public has shown itself to be much too willing to quickly forfeit the Bill of Rights in order to obtain a little temporary protection from a virus that nobody would have ever noticed without the alarmist news media screaming about it 24/7.  If you're sick, the virus is definitely more than nothing, but if you're not, and you don't generally congregate with those who visit China or Italy, then it is almost nothing.  Certainly nothing worth killing the United States' economy and political system to fix.  [#2] H.L. Mencken was also right:  "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."  The general public has lost its mind over the latest hobgoblin, thanks to the Trump-hating sensationalist news media, which is fully staffed with Democratic Party activists instead of journalists.

Mrs. Editor was quick to point out that H. L. Mencken was no hero, and is hardly worth quoting.  Mencken was very hostile to Christianity. [1] [2] [3]

I think there will be a number of beneficial after-effects of this world-wide virus panic.  [#1] A lot of people who live from one paycheck to the next are learning the value of thrift and savings.  [#2] A lot of people who never turn off their TV will finally learn that the television is a liar.  [#3] The New York Stock Exchange has "circuit breakers" that kick in whenever investors and speculators go nuts.  The state legislatures should have such protections, too, so that the state government can't suspend the Bill of Rights, just because CNN told them to, without holding public hearings.  [#4] Nobody is snickering and scoffing at the doomsday preppers any more.  [#4A] Perhaps this experience will revive an interest in fallout shelters, because such a thing is ridiculous until it is needed, and by then it's too late to prepare.  [#5] Many tree-hugging hippies will now understand that there are more important issues than global warming or the mean sea level rising two millimeters per year.  [#6] Many people may adopt irrational mysophobia, but many more will finally realize the importance of keeping their hands [#1] clean and [#2] away from their faces.  This is the sort of thing that was once taught in elementary school (during the cold war), but is no longer mentioned in school.

It is now clear that we have been lied to about projections of mass death and impossible numbers of hospitalizations.  The computer models proved to be worthless, the hospital numbers have been cooked, and the truth has been hard to find.  The Trump-hating news media has been peddling anxiety and fear for six weeks or more, apparently hoping for an economic collapse, if that's what it takes to elect a Democrat president.  It is also clear that many governors, county commissioners, and mayors have demonstrated an eagerness to assume, just by decree, the vast powers they've always wanted.  Moreover, it is clear that the next Election Day could easily be the last Election Day if these tyrants aren't booted out.  The virus panic has turned out to be the most costly over-reaction in the history of the world, both in money and in liberty.  The surest way to perpetuate the "temporary" loss of our liberties is to elect or re-elect Democrats in November.  The Republicans are not exactly clamoring for the end of the coronavirus lockdown, but bad is better than worse.

This country is in serious trouble.  Nearly all of the state governments put their entire populations under a stay-at-home, shelter-in-place, lockdown/quarantine, based on irrational fear, and the vast majority of those who live in nominally "free countries" instantly complied with the spontaneous tyranny that resulted.

The whole episode had a network of causes and another network of effects.  The malevolent Chinese communists, intentionally or not, lost their grip on a virus.  The virus spread to several remote (to them) parts of the world via airline travel and basically open borders.  Then the alarm was sounded, and someone ran a deeply flawed computer model that predicted widespread death.  Right away, the sensationalist tabloid news media picked up the ball and ran with it.  Day and night, the word pandemic was perniciously employed, even though the people affected by the virus were only in specific places, not everywhere, and the victims of this new disease were primarily those who were already in poor health.

Before long, the lockdown and quarantine, announced and supported by television, made normal life impossible, and a great number of people found themselves unemployed.  Oh, but it's only temporary, and it's for the benefit of everyone!  Then week after week elapsed while the television stoked the fear and spread the notion that wearing a mask would keep everyone safe.  Panic shopping and hoarding, which would have been easily preventable had it not been a surprise, made routine shopping even more unpleasant.

Very gradually, after months of this insanity, and after the petty tyrants at the state and county level became more insufferable with their demands, voices finally emerged to say this treatment is worse than the disease.  An embarrassingly small number of people began to rise up and denounce the tyranny at hand.  All others sheepishly complied.  THAT is why this country is in trouble.  Nobody seems to mind if, for the first time, the government tells healthy people to stay in their houses.  Nobody seems to care that the government is printing trillions of dollars' worth of hot checks to appease the masses.  Criminals are being released from jails and prisons because of concern for their safety, but then what happens to our safety?  Churches are being told whether they may operate or not, and if so, at some arbitrarily prescribed fraction of their capacity, and the pastors comply!  The American people are far more timid and malleable than I had imagined.  Especially the Republicans.  We have now known for weeks that the computer models are seriously flawed, the body counts are fraudulently high, and the disease is so hit-and-miss that half the people who get it exhibit no symptoms at all.  Yet almost nobody will stand up to their elected officials, or the cops, and resist this nonsense.

The heat was turned up very rapidly, and yet the proverbial frog is still sitting in the hot water, patiently waiting for it to cool down, somehow.

Please note that the people at the CDC and WHO are unelected, pencil-pushing bureaucrats whose lives have not been interrupted by all this hysteria.  Indeed, their jobs are now more secure than ever.  Whether you follow CDC guidelines or not is entirely up to you; however, if you run a business and you are fastidiously adhering to arbitrary rules and regulations, your business may suffer (even more than it was already).  I said goodbye to my barber this morning, when I saw a sign posted on his door listing a bunch of CDC-recommended actions that would be required of me upon entering the shop.  Sadly, he is now my former barber.  (What a shame.  I was a good tipper, too!)

(Incidentally, if you aren't sick already, and your immune system hasn't been weakened, you aren't accomplishing anything by wearing a mask.  Why are so many people driving around town, alone in their cars, wearing masks?  Trying to filter out a virus by wearing a paper mask — or a bandana over your nose — is like building a mosquito net out of chicken wire.  The mask just tells everyone how fearful, weak, and compliant you are.)

And now we see censorship on social media, to squelch the dissenters, and the exploitation of the so-called pandemic as a political weapon against President Trump.  The story was already bad enough without those ingredients.  It may already be too late to rectify this mess, and if the socialist Democrats prevail in any upcoming election, this country is finished.

If you're still wearing a mask at this late date, you must be a Democrat, or a serf who lives under the thumb of a Democrat.  If you wear a mask while you drive around in your car or ride a bicycle, by yourself, you look like a muzzled bear at the circus.  (You may not know what a circus is, because they were all cancelled years ago.)  If you wear a mask while you walk around the block for some fresh air, your ignorance is on display.

The petty tyrants are trying to get the virus and its associated shutdowns into a sequel, since they enjoyed their power so much, but not everyone is buying it this time.  Fool me twice, shame on me.  Except I wasn't fooled the first time.  Bureaucrats need to sit down and let the rest of us take our chances with whatever germs are in the air, as we have for centuries.

The links and excerpts on this page are in reverse chronological order:  The newest material is at the top.  There are links on this page to over a thousand articles on other web sites, offering abundant evidence that...
  [#1]   The coronavirus crisis, if it was ever really a crisis, is over now.
  [#2]   The coronavirus crisis was the product of news media sensationalism, designed to keep everyone alarmed and tuned to the TV.
  [#3]   The petty tyrants among us at the state and county levels have used this so-called crisis to grab power that they normally wouldn't have; and even when there is abundant evidence that the worst of the disease is over, and was over several weeks ago, they cling to their edicts and mandates that nobody has had a chance to vote on.  Lockdowns and restrictions that were originally supposed to have been in place for a few weeks have been repeatedly extended.
  [#4]   The entire crisis originated in China, either accidentally or maliciously.
  [#5]   The entire crisis is political:  It's all about crushing capitalism, impeding the growth and progress seen under President Trump, and ruining the United States as we have known it, in order to bring about a new Socialist government.
  [#6]   There are cheap and effective cures for the symptoms that accompany Covid-19, but any discussion of these remedies is being suppressed on social media and censored on mainstream media.  This is most likely because Big Government does not like cheap and easy solutions to nationwide problems, and neither do the drugstores.
  [#7]   If you are still wearing a face mask voluntarily in August 2020, you're either a Democrat, a person who watches too much television, or a spineless serf who will do whatever you're told, no matter how obviously unnecessary it is.
  [#8]   Entirely too many people in this country are unaware of their rights under the Constitution, and are gladly willing to forfeit those rights, just to avoid any criticism in the news media or on social media platforms.  Almost every pastor of every church has given up any claim to the First Amendment's guarantees of the free exercise of religion, and the freedom to engage in peaceful assembly.  Once those rights are lost, they cannot be recovered.
  [#9]   Even in places where masks or face coverings are mandatory, there are no standards:  Your face can be covered with gauze, cloth, window screen, or the flimsiest veil, and you will be welcomed just as if you were wearing a fresh hospital-quality mask.
  [#10]   The Covid-19 disease is so terrible that half the people who have the virus exhibit no symptoms.
  [#11A]   As long as there is money to be made from this disease, the fearmongering will persist.
  [#11B]   As long as the sensationalized news coverage of this disease keeps you glued to the television, the sensationalism will persist.
  [#11C]   As long as there is a political incentive to amplify this disease, the hysteria will persist.

Background, overview and recap articles:

We Are in This Conflict Whether We Like It or Not.  [Scroll down]  With COVID-1984, however, official propaganda has changed too fast for governments to hide glaring logical inconsistencies.  People remember that "two weeks to flatten the curve" turned into two months and then into two years and counting.  People remember that they were first told that cloth masks were entirely useless before being told that they were helpful before finally being told that they were mandatory.  People remember that the idea of government-issued "vaccine passports" was mocked as a conspiracy theory only months before governments began issuing them.  People can see that the same authorities who once promised that nobody would be forced to receive an experimental "vaccine" are now threatening unemployment and economic devastation upon those who refuse.  People have noticed that ordinary seasonal flu cases and deaths have strangely disappeared altogether, and when health authorities try to explain flu's disappearance as the result of universal masking, people wonder why masks would work on regular flu but not the COVID variety.  People have noticed that the same people pushing "vaccines" in order to "save lives" are the same ones who have called for denying life-saving treatment to those unvaccinated.  And while corporate media push fear by hyping the death toll from the China Virus, people do not see bodies piling up in the streets or neighbors collapsing all around them.  What they have noticed after being pushed into various forms of house arrest and economic lockdown is the absolute destruction of small businesses; exponential increases in suicides, drug overdoses, and alcohol-related deaths; an explosion of cancer and other life-threatening illnesses caused by delays in routine medical checkups; and the loss of entire life savings.  They have noticed that hospitals and government agencies have fraudulently magnified the impact of COVID by lumping in unrelated deaths caused by everything from car wrecks to heart attacks to even homicides.

The Traits of the Authoritarians Among Us:  [Scroll down]  Perhaps nothing better defines this mindset of infallibility and pathological lying than the deliberate mismanagement of the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic.  Since March of 2020, the governing/professional class and its accomplices in the medical establishment have regurgitated innumerable falsehoods and have been responsible for a variety of catastrophic mistakes.  Not only has there been no acknowledgment that errors were made but they were compounded by abject refusals to change course.  Among the myriad overt lies and exaggerations, the American people were subjected to are the following.
  [#1]   Covid-19 is ten times deadlier for the entirety of the American population than seasonal influenza and millions could die.  The reality is for 90+% of the population Covid-19 is only marginally more dangerous than seasonal flu.  To further panic the public, the fatalities attributed to Covid-19 were deliberately exaggerated by a factor of 10 to 1.
  [#2]   In order to get the American people to acquiesce to an unprecedented and unnecessary quarantining of the healthy, the citizenry was assured that a two-week shutdown would slow down the virus and defeat it.  In numerous places in the country, they are in week 78.
  [#3]   Joe Biden declared that if a person is vaccinated, he or she will not be infected or die with the virus.  Currently, the majority of those being infected and dying of Covid-19 are vaccinated.
  [#4]   Immunity generated by the vaccine is far better than natural immunity from having previously contracted the virus.  In fact, natural immunity provides 13x more immunity to Covid-19 than the vaccines.
The American people were first told that wearing masks for Covid-19 was unnecessary as they were ineffective.  Then the political/medical establishment mandated masks despite the fact that they knew they were ineffective.  Mask mandates still proliferate throughout the country even after nearly two-thirds of Americans have been vaccinated and untold millions have immunity emanating from prior Covid-19 infections.

Some Scientific Observations about the Medical Establishment's Handling of COVID-19 to Date.  [#1]  Although our primary defense against almost any disease is our immune system, there has been almost no public education or emphasis about this by the Medical Establishment. [...] [#2] The general COVID-19 rules and recommendations from the Medical Establishment have been illogical, inconsistent and/or harmful. [...] [#3] COVID-19 data from (or supported by) the Medical Establishment, have been incomplete to purposefully deceptive.  [This includes data about COVID-19 injections.] [...] [#4] Inexplicably, to date the Medical Establishment has yet to support some well-documented effective COVID-19 therapies. [...] [#5] The overuse of antibiotics in the US could well be a reason why we are having difficulty in tamping down the COVID-19 virus — yet the Medical Establishment is mum on this. [...] [#6] The exposure of individuals to PFAs (toxic chemicals) can result in adverse COVID-19 outcomes — yet the Medical Establishment is (again) not publicizing this. [...] [#7] The Medical Establishment has allowed the PCR test to be used to determine whether or not an individual (e.g., a deceased person) has COVID-19 — while the inventor said that this was a "useless" application of his test.

Lockdown lessons.  [#1] Be wary of experts.  Most of their advice during the pandemic has been wrong and harmful.  Experts' knowledge is typically compartmentalized.  They are not "big picture" thinkers which is why they fail to consider collateral damage.  The lockdown may have reduced the number of COVID deaths, but it has increased the amount of depression and number of suicides, especially among age 18 and younger.  The postponement and cancellation of medical appointments have resulted in thousands of premature deaths.  [#2] Respect your own common sense as well as your instincts.  Thinking has been on vacation since the lockdowns were imposed.  Keep in mind that your leaders' objectives are often the opposite of yours.  [#3] Never take radical action without overwhelming evidence that it will work.  The authorities took all manner of drastic actions and weren't the least bit interested in offering evidence and they still aren't.  Unelected bureaucrats, who know nothing about us, dictated how we live our lives down to the tiniest details.  The authorities coerced hundreds of millions of people to wear masks.  They assumed that would reduce transmission.  There is now at evidence that masks are worse than useless.  [#4] Be extremely reluctant to commit sweeping violations of the Constitution. [...]

The Panic Pandemic.  The United States suffered through two lethal waves of contagion in the past year and a half.  The first was a viral pandemic that killed about one in 500 Americans — typically, a person over 75 suffering from other serious conditions.  The second, and far more catastrophic, was a moral panic that swept the nation's guiding institutions.  Instead of keeping calm and carrying on, the American elite flouted the norms of governance, journalism, academic freedom — and, worst of all, science.  They misled the public about the origins of the virus and the true risk that it posed.  Ignoring their own carefully prepared plans for a pandemic, they claimed unprecedented powers to impose untested strategies, with terrible collateral damage.  As evidence of their mistakes mounted, they stifled debate by vilifying dissenters, censoring criticism, and suppressing scientific research.  If, as seems increasingly plausible, the coronavirus that causes Covid-19 leaked out of a laboratory in Wuhan, it is the costliest blunder ever committed by scientists.  Whatever the pandemic's origin, the response to it is the worst mistake in the history of the public-health profession.

This Was a Test, and We Failed.  What has occurred in the last year has befuddled me, as the level of treachery, deception, disinformation, and false narratives has reached excessive elevations, indicating a sense of urgency and desperation by those wielding power over society.  It has been depressing and frustrating to witness the level of obedient compliance by the majority of frightened sheep in this country, with complete subservience to authoritarian dictates of their overlords.  The extremeness of the response to a bad annual flu virus leads me to believe the truth behind what has happened and is happening is far worse than most can conceive or comprehend.  The level of pure malevolence and disregard for humanity exhibited by the despots wielding power over our political, economic, medical, and social structures has pushed the country to the edge of civil chaos, calculated political pandemonium, global conflict, and unavoidable debt manufactured financial collapse.  Sometimes I find myself wondering whether I'm the crazy one for not believing a piece of cloth will protect me from catching a flu virus with a 99.8% survival rate, or not voluntarily allowing a Big Pharma corporation, with no liability for the consequences of its experimental gene therapy, to treat me as their animal test subject to increase my survival chances to 99.85%, or questioning why I need to wear a face diaper because I can catch the virus while walking to my restaurant table but not once I sit down, or why six foot distancing is safe but 5 foot distancing is dangerous.  Why are the predictions of doom by "experts", which never come true, overlooked and disregarded by the corporate fake news media?

The COVID-19 Anniversary Provides An Insight Into Progressive Governance.  This is a retrospective as we near the first anniversary of our progressive experience with SARS-CoV-2.  Liberty-loving Americans looking ahead to the Biden administration should consider the past year to have been a previewing of coming attractions for progressive governance.  Imagine Dr. Anthony Fauci gaining an audience with President Ronald Reagan.  After Dr. Fauci parroted statistics from Professor Neil Ferguson of Imperial College London that 2.2 million Americans would die from Wuhan coronavirus infections unless a progressive fascist agenda were enacted shutting down non-essential businesses and placing all Americans under house arrest, President Reagan would have laughed and politely told Dr. Fauci to leave and close the door behind him.  Mr. Reagan was educated in economics and loved our Constitution and Bill of Rights.  He knew over-reaching government actions would cause harm and wouldn't impact viral transmission.  Mr. Reagan trusted customers to determine which businesses were and weren't essential.  It was inconceivable to place healthy, law-abiding citizens under virtual house arrest.  President Reagan would urge the vulnerable to maintain appropriate isolation and those with infected symptoms to self-quarantine.  God bless him, but President Donald Trump isn't ideological.  He came into office to implement certain ideas.  Paramount was undoing damage done to our country by Barack Obama over eight years.  Unfortunately, when Drs.  Fauci and Birx told President Trump the sky was falling, he was confounded by this curveball from left field.  In March and through May, we discovered there are two Libertarians from Kentucky, but no conservatives in Washington, DC.

Farewell to a Dreadful Year.  When the coronavirus first appeared, the neo-Thought Police in the media took pains to refrain from referring to the virus by its place of origin (the "Wuhan virus" or the "China flu") for fear of being politically incorrect.  Notwithstanding the fact that West Nile Virus, Ebola, and Lyme Disease, among other maladies, are named after the geographic origins of the disease, there was an exception made for this one.  Using the term Wuhan flu was simply not permitted.  Starting with the contretemps over the name, the virus became entirely a creature of politics:  a useful crisis that could serve as the springboard for the progressive agenda. [...] In the early spring, the Imperial College of London model predicted 2.2 million deaths in the United States and 500,000 in Great Britain.  This became the scientific basis for a large-scale abrogation of personal and economic liberty.  The models were later adjusted and by May it had become obvious that the death totals would be far short of that forecast, but by that point it was too late.

Essential Facts About Covid-19On one hand, these facts show that:
  •   the average death rate for people who contract Covid-19 is well below 1% and is much closer to that of the seasonal flu than figures that were commonly reported by the press.
  •   the average years of life lost from each Covid-19 death are significantly fewer than from common causes of untimely death like accidents and suicides.
  •   the virus that causes Covid-19 is "very vulnerable to antibody neutralization" and has very limited ability to mutate, which makes it unlikely to take masses of lives year after year like the flu and other recurring scourges.
On the other hand, elderly people and those with chronic ailments are extremely vulnerable to Covid-19, and the disease is highly transmissible, which means it could spread like wildfire and overwhelm hospitals without extraordinary measures to contain it.  This would greatly increase its death toll.  However, measures to limit the spread of C-19 sometimes involve fatal tradeoffs, and thus, overreactions can destroy more years of life than they save.

Revolution 2020.  [Scroll down]  In January 2020, when COVID hit and Trump cut off travel from China and Europe, the ruling class predictably indicted him for racist excess.  Fauci and the CDC claimed that the virus was not particularly contagious to humans, and Democrat officials urged people to attend big gatherings.  After contagion became obvious the media, following Fauci, did not apologize for their errors.  Instead, they spread estimates that the virus would kill some two million Americans, that U.S. hospitals would be overwhelmed, and insisted that Trump urge Americans to avoid contact with one another "to slow the spread and flatten the curve" of infections.  No one suggested that any measures available might stop the virus.  Trump took that step — unnecessary, but possibly politically analgesic.  As of this point in mid-March, nothing extraordinary had yet changed the balance of power in America.  But then Trump let himself be persuaded to extend the suggestion of "lockdown" indefinitely, subject to such conditions as the CDC might make for "reopening."  Thus, having made "lockdowns" his own, did Trump largely disempower himself, enabling and legitimizing the ruling class's seizure of powers that are reminiscent of Orwell's 1984.  Subsequently, the entire ruling class — the media (especially the social media giants), every officeholder, politician, and publicist associated with the Democratic party, and corporate America — took upon itself powers over the American people such as not even Woodrow Wilson had wielded in World War I.  Foremost of these is exclusion of criticism of itself from public circulation.  Banning church services and other voluntary organizations, interactions among neighbors, as well as closing small businesses reduced communications of whatever the ruling class might decide largely to one-way, top-down conveyance.  Thus did the oligarchy manage to convince the public to let it treat a virus the infection/fatality rate of which (circa 0.01%) is either equal to or lower than that of the average of seasonal influenzas, as if it were the plague.  Worse that, for the sake of public health, the public should acquiesce in restrictions — such as quarantining uninfected persons and staying indoors — that reverse the logic of quarantine.  The ruling class use of COVID-19 is medical nonsense.  But the "lockdowns" made perfect political sense because they disadvantaged primarily the sort of people who vote conservative.  The lockdowns also made ordinary people more economically dependent on government, while enriching those best connected with it.

The Attempted COVID Coup of 2020.  What history will record as the great COVID coup of 2020 is based on lies and fear manufactured by America's ruling class — led by the Democratic Party and aided by the complaisance of most Republican politicians.  In March, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) presented the coronavirus to the Western world as a danger equivalent to the plague.  But China's experience, which its government obfuscated, had already shown that COVID-19 was much less like the plague and more like the flu.  All that has happened since followed from falsifying this basic truth.  Americans were led to believe that the virus was unusually contagious, and that it would kill up to one in 20 persons it infected — a 5 percent infection/fatality rate (IFR).  Today, we still lack definitive, direct knowledge of COVID-19's true lethality.  The absence of that knowledge allows bureaucrats to continue fearmongering. [...] An honest reckoning, if we can get one, will reveal that the COVID-19 experience in America has only tangentially been about health.  It has been, predominantly, a political campaign based on the pretense of health but dedicated to the maintenance of elite control — and it has done far more damage and caused more misery than the coronavirus itself.

The Rise of the Insurgent Right.  This is tyranny.  A free country does not strip its citizens of the right to work by edict.  A free country does not dehumanize its citizens with mask-wearing mandates.  A free country does not suspend the right of citizens to travel freely within its borders.  In "The COVID Coup," Angelo Codevilla cuts through the lies on which the authoritarian coronavirus response was built.  He makes clear that the initial predictions of death and destruction were wildly incorrect and that the policy solutions proposed in response were totally inconsistent with our way of life.  Our experts failed us.  Codevilla states the truth: the "pandemic" was never a crisis of such magnitude that it required suspending basic civil liberties for months on end.  The clearest evidence is Sweden, which never locked down, refused to mandate masks, and kept schools open.  That nation saw .057% of its population die from the Coronavirus.  The United States, on the other hand, despite numerous "interventions" and the implementation of de facto medico-martial law, saw .058% of its population perish.  Sweden's death rate peaked in April and has been in steady decline since.  Today they have deaths in the single digits.  In the United States, a nation where 3 million people (0.9% of the total population) die from all causes every year, we upended our entire way of life in the vain hope we could save 0.01% of the population from COVID death.  It isn't working.

That was the good part of the article immediately above.  After that, the writer proposes some soak the rich schemes that no freedom-loving American would ever endorse, after considering them for even a moment.


Timely news and commentary:


Smoking marijuana could lead to breakthrough COVID cases, study finds.  Heavy marijuana users who are also vaccinated may be more susceptible to breakthrough cases of COVID-19, a new study found.  The study, published last Tuesday in World Psychology, found that those with a substance use disorder (SUD) — a dependence on marijuana, alcohol, cocaine, opioids and tobacco — were more likely to contract the coronavirus after receiving both of their vaccination shots.  Those without a SUD saw a 3.6 percent rate of breakthrough infections, compared to a 7 percent rate in those with a SUD.  At 7.8 percent, those with marijuana use disorder were most at risk for breakthrough infections, the study found.

Is a Mask That Covers the Mouth and Nose Free from Undesirable Side Effects in Everyday Use and Free of Potential Hazards?  Many countries introduced the requirement to wear masks in public spaces for containing SARS-CoV-2 making it commonplace in 2020. Up until now, there has been no comprehensive investigation as to the adverse health effects masks can cause.  The aim was to find, test, evaluate and compile scientifically proven related side effects of wearing masks.  For a quantitative evaluation, 44 mostly experimental studies were referenced, and for a substantive evaluation, 65 publications were found.  The literature revealed relevant adverse effects of masks in numerous disciplines.  In this paper, we refer to the psychological and physical deterioration as well as multiple symptoms described because of their consistent, recurrent and uniform presentation from different disciplines as a Mask-Induced Exhaustion Syndrome (MIES).

Why is the medical profession letting us die?  So much observational data has come out since the beginning of this pandemic.  So many potential therapeutic and preventative treatments, yet so little interest on the part of medical boards and policymakers.  What's going on here?  It's my belief, reluctantly arrived at over more than a year, that medical and political policymakers do not have our best interests at heart.  They want the power, the glory, and the pats on their narcissistic little heads.  They want to be mommy, and daddy, and nursie, and the only adults in the entire country capable of making medical decisions for the rest of us.  Medical professionals are permitted to prescribe drugs as they see fit, even for off-label use.  They do this hoping that the drugs will be effective in treating their patients and improving their conditions and lives.  Prescribing a drug or regimen that does not have specific FDA approval for a specific use is perfectly legal and done all the time.  The media, the CDC, and Dr. Fauci seem to have conflated FDA approval with the only legal means whereby drugs can be prescribed.  This is simply wrong.

There Has Been No Mandatory Vaccination Executive Order.  With civic guidance and political leadership absent on the heels of multiple national crises, the entire country is now roiled in an era of massive civilian disobedience campaigns as thousands of American workers seek protection from President Biden's flawed vaccine dictates.  If you listen to Biden's recent incoherent statement on vaccine mandates or you are an incurable aficionado of what used to be called mainstream media, you may think there is reason to believe that a formal Presidential Executive Order mandating national Covid vaccinations had been issued. [...] However, a visit to the White House website on Executive Orders (Federal Register) reveals that the Biden Administration has not, to date, filed any such EO.  It was reported that the object of the EO was to direct the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) to issue a rule mandating vaccinations for employees in America[']s top one hundred companies or submit to weekly tests or be fired.  In addition, there appears to be no such EO action at the White House Office of Management and Budget as well as no evidence of OSHA preparation of an in-the-works standard to apply to the aforementioned unvaccinated.

Study Published On NIH Website Finds 'No Discernable Relationship' Between Vaccine Status And COVID Cases, Says Infection Rate May Be Higher Among Fully Vaccinated.  A new study published in the NIH NCBI database and authored by Harvard professor S. V. Subramanian, Ph.D, and Penn State professor Akhil Kumar, Ph.D claims that vaccination rates have "no discernable relationship" with the amount of new COVID cases, and notes that "In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people."  "At the country-level, there appears to be no discernable relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days," the report states.  "In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people.  Notably, Israel with over 60% of their population fully vaccinated had the highest COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the last 7 days."

San Francisco Shuts Down In-N-Out Burger For Refusing to Be Vaccine Police.  The City of San Francisco and Mayor London Breed announced a vaccination mandate in August for any business offering indoor dining.  According to the order, all businesses are required to ask for proof of vaccination from customers.  San Francisco was the second city in the country, behind New York, in making such a regional mandate.  The owners and operators of In-N-Out burger, refused to be vaccination police and discriminate against their customers.  The City of San Francisco shut them down.  The restaurant still offers outside seating and take out, but they will not participate in vaccine checkpoints.

In-N-Out Burger defies San Francisco's vaccine mandate: 'We refuse to become vaccination police'.  In-N-Out Burger has reopened after being shut down last week over its refusal to enforce San Francisco's vaccine mandate, telling the city that "we refuse to become the vaccination police."  The San Francisco health department closed Thursday the hugely popular burger joint's Fisherman's Wharf location, the only one in the City by the Bay, over its failure to check the COVID-19 vaccination status of customers before allowing them entry, as the city requires.  The fast-food restaurant is back in business for takeout and drive-through orders, but indoor dining remains closed, according to KRON-TV.

In-N-Out Burger refuses to demand vaccine 'passports' in SF store, forced to close indoor dining.  The first prominent company to stand up to vaccination passport bullying is In-N-Out Burger, which should surprise no one familiar with the company's history and culture. [...] In-N-Out Burger is a company that is unafraid to march to its own drummer.  It isn't worried about shareholders protesting or selling their stock.  The company is 100% owned by Lynsi Snyder, referred to by employees as "the owner."  She is the only grandchild of Harry and Esther Snyder, who founded the company in 1948 as a burger stand "barely 10 feet square," invented a two-way speaker box enabling customers to order from their car, and slowly built other outlets, with a fanatical dedication to quality.  The company uses fresh meat only, bakes its own buns, and supplies stores from central warehouse facilities where quality controls are rigorously enforced.  At first the company's stores were limited to Southern California, but it has gradually expanded, and now has stores as far east as Texas.

Colorado Springs school district investigating masks being taped to student's faces.  Parents are demanding answers following allegations that teachers forced middle school students in Colorado Springs to tape masks to their faces.  Academy School District 20 has said it will investigate the claims.  More than 100 students and staff members are being interviewed about the situation.  A picture of a sixth-grader from Chinook Trail Middle School with a mask taped to her face made the rounds on social media over the weekend.  The child's mother said she posted the picture to find out if other parents were aware of a "policy" of taped masks, and whether it had been done to other students.

Doctors Can Prescribe Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine Off-Label for COVID-19: Nebraska AG.  Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson issued a legal opinion saying that his office won't seek disciplinary action against doctors who prescribe hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin as off-label medicines to treat or prevent COVID-19, as long as they are not engaging in any misconduct.  The opinion, issued on Oct. 14, was in response to a request from Dannette Smith, CEO of the state's Department of Health, which licenses and disciplines doctors.  Smith asked whether it would be "deemed unlawful or otherwise subject to discipline" for doctors to prescribe ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, or other "off label use" medications to treat or prevent COVID-19.  The Republican attorney general said in the opinion that his office finds "the available data does not justify filing disciplinary actions against physicians simply because they prescribe ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine to prevent or treat COVID-19."

The Impending Mass Firing of America's Unvaccinated.  Zac Spolar found himself running around in a frenzy amid the COVID-19 surge in December, tending to three or four patients at once and laboring late into the night at a Los Angeles hospital.  The hardest part of the job, he said, was having to constantly console people who couldn't be with their loved ones in the intensive care unit, even if they were dying.  Now Spolar is among the many essential workers threatened with unemployment and diminished job prospects for refusing vaccination.  Police, firefighters, doctors, nurses, paramedics, airport security and prison guards across the country are facing termination this week if they don't comply with their employers' vaccine requirements.  Many have already lost their jobs or have been disciplined.  Other say they will defy the vaccine mandates on principle.  As a result, essential workers may soon be in short supply in many parts of America.

Experts and lies about COVID.  The great general Colin Powell died this week from COVID complications.  He was fully vaccinated.  At his age, any illness could have taken his life, yet if the vaccine was truly as effective as the experts say it is, surely General Powell should not have been infected with COVID.  Surely the wonderful vaccine which has been said to be so safe and effective should have protected him against COVID.  General Powell's vaccine was of no use against COVID.  He submitted to experimental gene therapy in the hopes that it would protect him, and it did nothing for him.  That hasn't stopped the experts from proclaiming General Powell's death as next door to proof that the vaccines are working.

Colin Powell's Death the Latest Sign of the COVID Scam.  There will be accolades aplenty forthcoming for General Powell, a former secretary of state, who ably served both presidents Bush in various military and civilian capacities.  But his death, coming as it does in the midst of our long political and biomedical wrangle over the severity of the threat posed by the CCP virus that causes COVID-19, once again focuses attention on the social and economic destruction the panic over the pandemic continues to cause.  Indeed, the general's death "from" COVID — despite his vaccination status — indicates one thing very plainly:  the vaccines don't work.  If they did, if they really prevented anyone from contracting the disease, Powell might still be alive while his doctors battled his other ailments.  But they don't, he didn't, and it's high time everyone admitted it.  Don't wait for the media, those thoroughly corrupt handmaidens of the Democrat Party and, latterly, of the U.S. government, to admit that.  Indeed, just hours after Powell's death, various outlets hastily rushed onto the air and into print with assurances that just because the vaccines don't work doesn't mean they don't work.

Thousands of California Parents Join in Statewide Walkout Against Vaccine Mandate for Students.  Thousands of California parents, students, and teachers on Monday participated in a statewide walkout to protest Gov. Gavin Newsom's decision to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for all students in both public and private schools.  Newsom, a Democrat, earlier this month announced the vaccine mandate for schoolchildren in grades 7 through 12 once the vaccines have received full approval by the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA), making California the first state to implement such requirements.  So far, the FDA has only granted emergency authorization for anyone aged 12 to 15.  Newsom's latest vaccine requirement is expected to take effect in January 2022 or the start of the 2022 school year.

Inhofe demands Pentagon halt COVID vaccine mandate for troops.  The top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee is demanding the Defense Department abandon its mandate that all troop and civilian personnel get vaccinated against COVID-19.  In a sharply worded letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Oklahoma Sen. James M. Inhofe, the ranking Republican and former chairman of the Armed Services panel, said he had "grave concerns" about the impact the mandate would have on both readiness and morale, while criticizing the way the military services have rolled out the vaccination campaign.  "This haphazardly implemented and politically motivated vaccine mandate must be immediately suspended or risk irrevocable damage to our national security reminiscent of sequestration," Mr. Inhofe wrote in a letter made public Tuesday [10/19/2021].

One of NJ's largest healthcare systems fires more than 100 employees who refused to get COVID vaccine by deadline.  One of New Jersey's largest healthcare providers fired more than 100 employees who refused to get a COVID-19 vaccine, after already firing six supervisory-level employees for the same thing in June.  RWJBarnabas Health in New Jersey on Monday fired the 118 employees — 62 of [whom] were part-time workers — after they refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine by the October 15 deadline.  The healthcare provider, which employs more than 35,000 people, reported that 99.7 percent of their employees have been vaccinated.

October surprise for Navy vax evaders:  Service might claw back bonuses, training, education costs.  Under new administrative guidance issued last week, the U.S.Navy will discharge from service all active-duty personnel who don't get the COVID jabs by the Nov. 28 deadline "absent a pending or approved exemption" — and might demand that refuseniks personally reimburse the service for a range of costs associated with their compensation and training.  The Reserve deadline is Dec. 28.  The initial COVID vaccine mandate was issued Aug. 25 by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

Biden's fully-vaccinated Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas tests positive for COVID.  Homeland Security Sec.  Alejandro Mayorkas has tested positive for Covid-19, throwing off his plans to travel to Colombia with Sec. of State Antony Blinken.  'Secretary Mayorkas tested positive this morning for the COVID-19 virus after taking a test as part of routine pre-travel protocols.  Secretary Mayorkas is experiencing only mild congestion; he is fully vaccinated and will isolate and work at home per CDC protocols and medical advice.  Contact tracing is underway,' DHS spokesperson Marsha Espinosa said in a statement.  Blinken will now travel to Quito, Equador on Tuesday and Bogotá, Colombia without the DHS head to meet with President Iván Duque and Vice President-Foreign Minister Marta Lucía Ramírez on Wednesday and Thursday to discuss tackling irregular migration and drug trafficking, among other priorities.

Southwest Airlines Backs Off Plan to Put Unvaccinated Employees on Unpaid Leave.  Southwest Airlines told its employees that it will delay a plan to place workers who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 on unpaid leave if they haven't yet obtained a medical or religious exemption.  The Dallas-based carrier confirmed reports about the memo to news outlets on Tuesday, saying it will drop the plan.  "If an accommodation has not been reviewed or approved by December 8, the Employee will continue to work, while following all COVID mask and distancing guidelines applicable to their position, until the accommodation has been processed," said Southwest in a statement.  The company stressed it will approve "all valid requests" for religious or medical accommodations.  If it is not granted, Southwest said it will "provide adequate time for an employee to become fully vaccinated while continuing to work and adhering to safety protocols."

9 In 10 Large Employers Concerned They Will Lose Employees Over Vaccine Mandate.  In an unusual twist to the strength of the multinationals, many large corporations are worried they will lose critical employees to smaller organizations with less than 100 employees who do not have to enforce the national worker vaccine mandate.  By itself the 100 worker rule, in combination with the exemptions being provided by the federal government for some politically connected union organizations, would seem to undercut the premise of the "national health emergency."  If the COVID pandemic is such a national threat, why would any groups be excluded from the mandate?  However, until the Dept of Labor rule is officially registered, court cases to hear such arguments are not possible.

Biden's Vaccine Mandates Needlessly Polarize, Impede Private Sector Labor Market.  The Biden administration is impeding the private sector through its federal vaccine mandates.  The Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration on Tuesday [10/19/2021] forwarded a vaccine rule to the Office of Management and Budget that requires vaccination of workers at businesses with 100 or more employees.  Employees who refuse vaccination would have compulsory weekly testing.  An estimated 80 million private sector workers will be affected by the mandate.  Firms that don't adhere to President Joe Biden's mandate might be subject to hefty fines up to $70,000 for extreme violations and $700,000 for repeat violations.  Although vaccines are a safe and effective way to reduce transmission of the coronavirus, government intervention — especially in labor markets — can be disruptive.

The so-called Covid "vaccines" are not vaccines at all.  They are neither safe nor effective.

Washington's ferry workers say lack of accommodations for vaccine exemptions is forcing them out.  Approximately 200 employees of Washington State Ferries (WSF) remain unvaccinated Monday, the deadline for state workers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or risk losing their jobs.  "I'm fired," said ferry deck crew member Christopher Anderson.  "It's really too bad.  I wish they'd have a change of heart."  Chief engineer Craig Henriksen has notched 23 years with the state ferry system.  It's a career he planned to retire from but instead it's being cut short.  "It's surreal," he said.  "I feel like I'm in shock."  Henriksen has a wife and five children.  He was granted a religious exemption for the mandate, but he said the ferry system refused to make any accommodations that would allow him to keep working.

The Standard for Discussing COVID Deaths Suddenly Changes.  Yesterday [10/18/2021], news broke that Gen. Colin Powell had died after contracting COVID-19. The former Bush official and former Republican was 84-years-old.  He was also undergoing treatment for cancer, though, the treatment itself was said to have been going well until he caught the coronavirus.  Powell was also fully vaccinated, and that has represented an inconvenient reality for many people. [...] But what was so interesting to me is how quickly the standards shifted in regards to how you are supposed to discuss people who die of COVID.  For the better part of two years, the predominant assertion has been that if someone dies with COVID, they died of COVID.  People were called conspiracy theorists for daring to suggest that many deaths actually occurred because of pre-existing conditions.  Yet, all of the sudden, it is now required to mention that Powell had cancer and was 84-years-old when talking about his death.

NHL suspends San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane without pay for 21 games for submitting a fake COVID vaccine card.  The NHL has suspended San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane for 21 games for submitting a fake COVID-19 vaccination card.  The league on Monday announced the suspension without pay and said Kane will not be eligible to play until November 30 at New Jersey.  Kane will forfeit about $1.68 million of his $7 million salary for this season with the money going to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.  The cash he is losing is equivalent to around $35,000-a-day.

Dan Bongino threatens to quit radio network over vaccine mandate.  Conservative talk-show host Dan Bongino is telling his syndicator:  Your vaccine mandate or me.  "You can't have both."  Prefacing his challenge with "I don't work for anyone" and is merely a "partner with Cumulus," Mr. Bongino challenged the radio giant on Monday's episode of "The Dan Bongino Show" to cancel his program, vowing to "not let this go."  "You can have me, or you can have a vaccine mandate, but you can't have both," Mr. Bongino said.  "I grew up without a lot of money. ... I'm not leaving those guys behind."

Dan Bongino puts principle before money on vax mandate and advertiser censorship issues.  Dan Bongino walks the walk, in addition to talking the talk.  He may be professionally classified as a talker now that he has a podcast, a three-hour syndicated talk show, a weekly Fox News Channel show and a simulcast presence on Fox Nation, but the former NYPD cop and Secret Service agent is a man of action.  I tip my hat to Dan for standing on principle — even at potentially great financial cost — in dealing with bullying by Antifa and by the vaccine mandate fanatics.

Chicago Mayor says police union is trying to 'induce an insurrection'.  This is the most dangerous time in American history since the Civil War.  Back then, Democrats desperately wanted to keep the institution of slavery.  Today, they desperately want to enslave anyone, of any color, that believes in the primacy of inherent individual rights and the concept of limited government of, by, and for the people.  That is why they mask us up, lock us down and threaten us with fines and job loss if we don't wish to be injected with an unvetted foreign substance as if we were so many livestock.  It is time — well past time — for Americans to reassert their birthrights.

COVID vs. the Bill of Rights.  In the relative ranking of deities, I'm guessing most people would put Two-Mask Fauci a few levels down from the top.  The government didn't give us our freedom and it can't take it away.  It can oppress those freedoms with brute force — and that is what Fauci is advocating.  But unfortunately, Fauci isn't the only government functionary that thinks he has the authority to make such rulings.  Numerous governors, mayors, and city councils have also curtailed our freedoms.  Their lockdowns and social distancing rules undermined our property rights, our freedom of assembly, and our freedom of expression.  The "my body, my choice" folks have decided that it's not our choice except when it pertains to the killing of unborn children.  But it is all for the "greater good."  Even the Supreme Court, our so-called guardians of our republic, got in on the act.  When the CDC cancelled our property rights through its eviction moratorium, the court held that the moratorium was unconstitutional — but they'd let it stand for a little while — for the greater good.  They decided they had the authority to grant a waiver to the Constitution.  That the thinking of public officials on our freedoms is so flawed is truly disturbing.

Australian Premier Promises to Keep Unvaccinated People Locked Out of Economy into 2022.  In the state of Victoria, Australia, Premier Daniel Andrews again affirmed his intent to keep all unvaccinated citizens isolated, marginalized and locked out of the economy deep into 2022.  Simultaneously, Andrews warns the vaccinated citizens that if they attempt to avoid any booster shots, as determined by the state, the vaccinated will join the unvaccinated group in being locked down.  Perhaps this threat will alarm the citizens that have been vaccinated.  Just because they are compliant today, if the vaccinated class attempt to defy the government boosters 3, 4, 5, 6, etc, they will be cast back into the second class world of the unvaccinated disposable group.  Today Premier Andrews draws the compliance around vaccinations, boosters and variants; however, he is setting up the system for government lock downs for violations of any rule in future mandates that may be unrelated to a virus.  The vaccine is the means, not the ends.

Physicians Asst.  Whistleblower Reveals Hospital Intake With 90 Percent Vaccinated Patients and Hospital Administration Refusing to Report Adverse Events.  The central statistic in this whistleblower story is important.  In a community with a 50% vaccination rate, 90% of the hospital admissions were vaccinated patients, and most of the critical care hospital intakes were within 14 days of the patient taking the vaccine.  An alarmed physicians assistant began reporting those issues into the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting system until the hospital administration stepped in to stop her from recording the frequency.

Dr. Fauci:  A tyrant from out of The Twilight Zone.  Observing Doctor Fauci's behavior since the start of this COVID-19 pandemic, I am reminded of an episode of the original Twilight Zone series written by Rod Serling:  "On Thursday We Leave for Home."  According to The Twilight Zone Companion, by Marc Scott Zicree, Serling considered it the best episode of the fourth season.  It is an excellent example of tyrants — how they are made and how they behave. [...] James Whitmore plays William Benteen, the leader of a colony of Earth people who have been living on a colony planet. [...] This is consistent with the flip-flops that Doctor Fauci has given us from the beginning.  He said masks don't protect you.  In fact, years earlier, he said that very thing.  At the time, he called them a paranoid tool.  Then he changed his tune and said everyone should wear a mask.  Next, he suggested a mask mandate.  When he was confronted with his own words, he echoed Benteen's response:  I lied to you so there wouldn't be a rush on masks.  Now I'm telling you the truth for your own good.

Devastating video of shifting narrative on Covid vax.  I wish that I could find out who created the two-plus minute video embedded below.  It contains no identification. [...] Whoever put it together understands the short attention span of many people and the power of rapid cuts from image to image, resulting in a powerful cumulative impression.  It begins with the confident claims of vaccine efficacy from Fauci and others.  With familiar music from Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite in the background, as the tempo increases, the speed of the images follows, perfectly synchronized with the music, as published claims of vaccine efficacy plunge from 100% and headlines about side effects and other problems flash by.  Fauci's visage, confidently endorsing the vaccines reappears, taking on a Big Brotherish aspect, almost comically sticking to his story as reality in the headlines contradicts his propaganda pronouncements.  [Video clip]

Physician to FDA, CDC: In 20 Years of Practicing Medicine, 'I've Never Witnessed So Many Vaccine-Related Injuries'.  In a letter dated Sept. 28 to officials at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an ICU physician detailed her concerns about the adverse reactions, including deaths, she witnessed in people who had received a COVID vaccine.  Dr. Patricia Lee, a licensed physician in California, said her experience with patients harmed by the vaccine "does not comport with claims made by federal health authorities regarding the safety of COVID-19 vaccines."  In the letter, Lee described observing "entirely healthy individuals suffering serious, often fatal, injuries," including transverse myelitis, resulting in quadriplegia, pneumocystis pneumonia, multi-system organ failure, cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, postpartum hemorrhagic shock and septic shock.  Lee, a practicing physician for more than 20 years, said she "never witnessed so many vaccine-related injuries until this year."

There Is No Public Health Utility To The Current COVID "Vaccines".  The normal argument for public health utility in a vaccine is that the measure eliminates the hazard of Person A transmitting a pathogen to Person B.  That is, the public health utility of a vaccine hinges on it having the effect of immunizing the vaccinated individual from becoming infected and spreading the disease.  The current COVID "vaccines" pushed by the Biden administration are not even purported to have the requisite property of conferring immunity — and they do not.  All that is (itself dubiously) claimed of them is that they lessen the severity of the disease as experienced by the "vaccinated" individual.  Those "vaccinated" individuals can still catch and spread the virus to others — including "others" who are themselves fully "vaccinated". [...] Further, "vaccinated" individuals carry (and transmit) at least as much viral load as unvaccinated (as admitted here by the CDC) — and possibly a great deal more.  Further still, contrary to the deceptions practiced by the "vaccine" boosters in government and the media, infections among the "vaccinated" have been occurring since the very beginning of the "vaccination" rollouts (as admitted [...] by the CDC).  This means that "breakthrough" cases are not a consequence of "waning protection" — the "protection" has never existed, and the "vaccine" manufacturers have never claimed that their products conferred immunity anyway.

COVID-19 "Vaccines" — Some Pros and Cons.  The conclusion of this document's information is:  there may be a PERSONAL benefit for some citizens to receive one of the COVID-19 "vaccines," but there is no proven PUBLIC benefit.  As such, the vaccination choice should be personal and not mandated.

80 of the most common adverse events reported after Covid-19 vaccination.  A report does not necessarily prove the illness or death was caused by the Covid vaccine.  The system is designed to collect adverse events after vaccination to uncover any patterns not captured during vaccine studies.  Scientists have estimated that adverse events caused by medicine occur at a rate up to 100,000 times higher in the general population than what's officially reported, since it's established that most adverse events aren't reported to the database.  However, some claim Covid-19 vaccine adverse events are not as likely to be underreported, due to close monitoring and widespread publicity surrounding Covid-19 vaccination.

America's Descent into Medical Fascism.  I debated whether to include "medical" in this headline.  After all, fascism is fascism, right?  It hardly requires a modifier.  Moreover, fascism and the medical profession share a long and sordid history.  During the 1930s, German doctors joined the Nazi party at four times the rate of other professionals.  Among the Nazis' most heinous crimes against humanity were their medical experiments on human subjects — atrocities that gave rise to the Nuremberg Code, which states that "the voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential."  From that international treaty comes our modern notion of "informed consent" — something we're now ignoring in our push to force-vaccinate everyone regardless of age, health status, prior immunity, or conscience. [...] Our oppressors don't even bother denying it.  They simply frame their tyranny as a matter of "public health."  That none of the draconian, liberty-crushing measures foisted upon us have been effective in "combatting the virus" doesn't enter into the conversation.  We must simply do as we're told, or else.  This is not, as some on the right have argued, communism or socialism.  It is straightforward fascism.  That's easily seen when we compare what's going on in the US today with what was happening in Germany in the 1930s.

The mystery of Japan's disappearing COVID crisis.  Most of the coverage we provided during Japan's bungled turn hosting the Olympics this summer dealt with the nation's spiraling COVID infection rates and lagging mass vaccination efforts.  But while they limited the in-person attendance of the actual games, the lockdowns and restrictions the government imposed were fairly mild.  People were still allowed to go out to bars and restaurants, albeit with modest capacity limits and the streets were far from empty.  The Associated Press described the measures as a series of "relatively toothless states of emergency." That makes this week's news all the more puzzling to some medical professionals.  The COVID crisis across Japan, and particularly in Tokyo, has all but evaporated.  In less than two months, Tokyo has gone from reporting more than 6,000 new cases per day to less than 100 this week.  And not even the government can explain why.

Nebraska AG: Docs can prescribe controversial COVID drugs.  Nebraska's attorney general says he won't seek disciplinary action against doctors who prescribe controversial, off-label drugs to treat and prevent coronavirus infections, as long as they get informed consent from patients and don't engage in misconduct.  The office of Attorney General Doug Peterson released a legal opinion saying it didn't see data to justify legal action against health care professionals who prescribe ivermectin, a decades-old parasite treatment, or hydroxychloroquine, a malaria drug that former President Donald Trump took to try to prevent a COVID-19 infection.

Fauci allegedly misled Trump admin on gain-of-function research according to new book.  A new book released earlier this month is diving into how National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci allegedly misled the former Trump administration on gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.  Australian investigative reporter Sharri Markson released her new book What Really Happened In Wuhan on Oct. 1, which according to its Amazon page, looks "into the origins of Covid-19, the cover-ups, the conspiracies and the classified research."

Proof that the CDC is lying to the world about COVID vaccine safety.  The CDC and the FDA claim that we can safely ignore the huge spike in event rates reported to the VAERS system this year (this is the official adverse event reporting system relied on by the FDA and CDC to spot safety signals).  In their view, there is "nothing to see" in the death chart below [sample at left].  They claim that the propensity to report (PTR) is much higher this year and that all the events (with the exception of a few) are all simply reporting background events that were not caused by the vaccines.  There's just one tiny little problem with that explanation:  there is a CDC paper that proves that they are lying.  Big time.  I will show below that even if we believed everything they said, it can't explain all the deaths and severe adverse events.  The data simply doesn't fit their hypothesis.  At all.


Chicago restricts cops from taking time off as department threatens to ax up to half of its 13,000 officers.  Chicago's top cop is warning police officers that their benefits could hang in the balance if they refuse to comply with the city's COVID vaccination policy, while the mayor has accused the union head of trying to 'induce an insurrection.'  Police Superintendent David Brown is warning that officers who don't comply with the city's vaccination policy could be fired and lose their retirement benefits.  About half of the city's 13,000 cops could be terminated under the rule if they don't disclose their status.  Meanwhile, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Monday that the city has already stopped the pay of a 'very small number' of officers who refused to cooperate with the mandate.  She said they'll now go through a disciplinary process.

JCN's Ortiz: 'We're Ready To Sue' Biden Administration Over Vaccine Mandate.  Job Creators Network president and CEO Alfredo Ortiz on Friday said his organization is "ready to sue" the Biden administration if President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate for small businesses goes into effect.  Ortiz, whose group has put up billboards in New York City calling on Biden to reverse course on his vaccine mandate, pointed out that small businesses around the country are still suffering from the coronavirus pandemic, and the mandate would only hurt them more.

California parents to protest school vaccine mandates by keeping kids at home Monday.  Some California parents are keeping their children home from school Monday [10/18/2021] to protest a statewide vaccine mandate for schoolchildren.  The families are opposing Gov. Gavin Newsom's recent announcement that the COVID-19 vaccine will soon be required for all public and private school students.  The government will implement the mandate per age group once a vaccine receives final federal approval.

The Unvaccinated Are Looking Smarter Every Week.  There is a massive propaganda push against those choosing not to vaccinate against COVID-19 with the experimental mRNA vaccines.  Mainstream media, the big tech corporations, and our government have combined efforts to reward compliance and to shame and marginalize non-compliance.  Their mantra says that this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated.  Persons who choose not to vaccinate are characterized as unintelligent, selfish, paranoid people who don't read much and live in a trailer park in Florida (or Alabama, or Texas, or name your state).  Never has there been such an effort to cajole, manipulate through fear, and penalize people to take an experimental medical treatment.  However, as time has passed with this pandemic and more data accumulates about the virus and the vaccine, the unvaccinated are looking smarter and smarter with each passing week.  It has been shown now that the vaccinated equally catch and spread the virus.  Vaccine side effect data continues to accumulate that make the risk of taking the vaccine prohibitive as the pandemic wanes.

21 Year Old, Double-Vaccinated, Very Fit College Senior Dies Of COVID.  Friends and family are mourning the death of a 21-year-old vaccinated University of Georgia senior who died of COVID-19.  Shawn Kuhn died Monday after battling COVID-19-based pneumonia for nearly six weeks, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reported.  His older sister Sharla Brook Kuhn said that Shawn had been fully vaccinated, according to the university's newspaper The Red & Black.  [Video clip]

Military Members from All 5 Branches File Class Action Lawsuit Against the Pentagon for Vaccine Mandates.  The Department of Defense is now facing a major class action lawsuit over its Covid vaccine mandate, which forces service members, employees, and contractors to get vaccinated or face disciplinary action or even termination.  The class action lawsuit was filed by the Liberty Counsel in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.  It lists President Joe Biden, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas as defendants.  "Plaintiffs are United States Armed Forces servicemembers, federal employees, and federal civilian contractors who face a deadline under the Federal COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate to receive a COVID-19 vaccine that violates their sincerely held religious beliefs, and have been refused any religious exemption or accommodation," the lawsuit states.

Biden and Chicago mayor Lightfoot go out maskless in public.  Of course, the entire charade of masking is stupid, because the size of viral particles is smaller than all but the expensive (and hard to fit) N95 masks.  The cloth or paper chin diapers are pretty worthless except as symbols of submission.  But once political leaders try to force them on the rest of us to make the point that they are in charge and to encourage fear of a virus that is 99.7% survivable for all but the elderly or seriously comorbid, they do have an obligation to lead by example.  To do otherwise invites contempt, which, I confess, I feel a lot of these days. [...] People have been attending college football games without masks with no "super-spreader events," so once again, the issue isn't safety.  It is hypocrisy.

16K COVID-19 Positive Migrants Released into U.S. by ICE, Says Whistleblower.  More than 16,000 migrants who tested positive for COVID-19 while in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody were released into the United States, according to an agency law enforcement source.  The Biden administration did not mandate any of the migrants to be vaccinated before their release.  The source informs Breitbart Texas that the figures only include those migrants who were tested by ICE.  The source, not authorized to speak to the media, says the migrants ranged from infants to the elderly.  A Department of Homeland Security document reviewed by Breitbart Texas reports the oldest released migrants were over 85 years old.  Nearly 1,300 were under the age of ten.

Senator Ron Johnson:  "There's No Point to Mandate Whatsoever — With COVID Vaccine We've Had 16,766 Deaths in 10 Months".  Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures this morning [10/17/2021].  Senator Johnson is one of the few lawmakers openly speaking out on the historic dangers of the COVID vaccines.  On Sunday Sen. Johnson had this to say on the mandates, "The mandates are pointless.  Now that we know that fully vaccinated individuals are getting infected, they can transmit the disease.  Unfortunately, they are being hospitalized, they're getting seriously ill, they're dying.  There's no point to the mandate, whatsoever."  On the dangers of the vaccines, Senator Johnson added, "They're completely ignoring the vaccine injuries.  And Maria, people really need to understand this because it's not being reported.  It's being suppressed. [...]"

Now Iceland Bans Moderna's COVID Vaccine After Finland, Sweden And Denmark.  Earlier, three European nations of Finland, Sweden and Denmark banned the Moderna COVID vaccine for young men due to its dangerous side-effects.  Now, even Iceland will no longer administer Moderna's mRNA Covid-19 vaccine, with the country's chief epidemiologist citing the risk of rare heart inflammations seen in other Nordic countries.  The announcement was made by Icelandic health authorities on Friday [10/8/2021].

Safe & Effective? — 78% of Covid-19 deaths among Vaccinated, 47% rise in teen deaths since they had the Vaccine,.  The public have been repeatedly told that the Covid-19 vaccines are "100% safe and effective" because they have been through the same rigorous testing every other approved vaccine has been through, despite the fact it took less than a year to allegedly formulate a vaccine, test it, and "get it into the arms" of the general public.  Today we can confirm that you have been lied to, the Covid-19 vaccines have not been through the same rigorous testing as other vaccines, and they are neither safe or effective, and we can prove this via a wealth of available official government data.

1996 report says Canada's Health Department found 'immunization was not mandatory'.  The Department of Health Wednesday [10/13/2021] would not comment on its legal opinion that compulsory vaccination is unconstitutional.  According to the findings from a 1996 report, "immunization is not mandatory in Canada," said the department's Canadian National Report On Immunization.  "It cannot be made mandatory because of the Canadian Constitution."  The report noted even school immunization programs could not compel parents to vaccinate their children.  "Legislation and regulations must not be interpreted to imply compulsory immunization," said the report by the Bureau of Infectious Diseases at the department's Health Protection Branch.  The department would not say if its legal counsel now has different advice justifying mandatory COVID immunization for select federal employees or air and rail passengers.

Archbishop Viganò warns of coming ecological dictatorship.  This is a translated transcription of Archbishop Viganò's video message for the October 15, 2021 "No Fear Day" in Turin (Torino), Italy.  ["]You have gathered, in such great numbers, in this piazza in Turin, as hundreds of thousands of people all around the world show their opposition to the establishment of a global tyranny.  For months now, despite the deafening silence of the media, millions of citizens from every nation have cried out their "NO!" No to the pandemic folly, No to the lockdowns, to the curfews, to the imposition of vaccines, to the health passports, to the blackmails of the totalitarian power enslaved to the elite.  It is a power that reveals itself as intrinsically evil, animated by an infernal ideology and driven by criminal purposes.  A power that now declares that it has broken the social contract and considers us not as citizens but as slaves of a dictatorship that today is a health dictatorship and tomorrow will be an ecological dictatorship.["]

Does anyone think this is a good idea?
Biden's USAID Launches $125 Million Project To Find 12,000 New Viruses.  Joe Biden's U.S. Agency for International Development launched a new $125 million dollar project with Washington State University and foreign collaborators to discover over 10,000 novel viruses in nature.  The ambitious program follows the agency funding a similar form of research conducted by EcoHealth Alliance and its controversial partner: the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Many experts believe this Chinese Communist Party-run lab is the source of COVID-19.  The new program, announced by Washington State University (WSU) on October 5th, will endeavor "to collect over 800,000 samples in the five years of the project."

Undercover Video Catches Pfizer Scientist Admitting The Shot Doesn't Work.  Project Veritas' latest undercover video reveals a Pfizer scientist recounting one instance of a superior expressing disinterest in the apparent failure of the company's COVID-19 vaccine to impart immunity to a test subject.  The video, released Friday [10/15/2021], shows a snippet of a conversation with Pfizer scientist Nick Karl, who tells an undercover Veritas journalist of his "first experiment" with the vaccine on a subject who "got the vax twice and had no antibody response."  At first, he thought the sample had simply been mislabeled, but his unnamed superior's reaction was allegedly indifference.  "Like I was, like, questioning it, and my boss was like, 'who cares, like it just didn't work,'" Karl says.  "I'm like, 'what?'"  "He didn't want me to investigate it further," Karl continued.  [Video clip]

Health Care Workers Go to War With Police Inside French Hospital Over COVID Passports.  The stress over vaccine passports kicked up a notch this Friday, October 15, 2021 in front of the Pierre Zobda Quitman hospital in Fort-de-France.  Police forces and demonstrators oppose each other.  Three people were arrested according to the police.  On the one hand there are security forces stationed at the entrances to Pierre-Zobda Quitamn hospital of the CHU and on the other, the demonstrators chanting "released yo" (Release them).  Several hours after the arrest of two people on the site in the middle of the day, the tension is still palpable.  [Video clip]

Large Football Crowds Have Not Resulted In COVID-19 Spikes; Doomsayers Proven Wrong.  College football has reached the mid-season point, and COVID-19 outbreaks are on the decline in many of the states with the largest stadiums.  Through weeks of mostly unmasked fans sitting side by side at college football games in huge stadiums, the dire predictions of the doomsday crowd have fallen flat on their face. [...] What's that?  Dr. Fauci wrong?  Again?  He seems to keep failing upward, in the view of those on the Left who have all but bestowed sainthood on him despite his sorry track record.  NBC reporter Shaquille Brewster shot them both down with his report Saturday [10/16/2021].  "But it never happened," he said of the drastic expectations.  "COVID cases, hospitalizations and deaths now all down nation-wide.  Cases are in steep decline in every college football state across the south, including Florida, where hospitalizations fell 64 percent last month."  That's despite as many as 90,000 fans packing the Florida Gators stadium for games and more than 100,000 fans attending games in other states.

NBC fact-checks Fauci's fear that college football games would be COVID super-spreaders: 'Never happened'.  A report on NBC's "Today" Saturday [10/16/2021] fact-checked Dr. Anthony Fauci's fear — made on its cable arm MSNBC — of a dramatic COVID-19 surge from crowded football stadiums, saying it "never happened."  NBC reporter Shaquille Brewster reported packed stadiums for sporting events have not become "super-spreader events" for the coronavirus. [...] "There's been a 35% decline in Georgia, 32% decline in South Carolina, 30% decline in Mississippi, 22% decline in Arkansas, 23% in Alabama, 9% in Texas.  Every single SEC state where millions of people have gone to college football games has not led to a feast of COVID as Doctor Fauci predicted," Travis said.

Fauci says people 'react against me' when the 'truth becomes inconvenient' and those who don't agree with him are conspiracy theorists.  Dr. Anthony Fauci has argued that he has been an easy target for conspiracy theorists because he makes recommendations based on 'science, data and hard facts' — and that becomes an 'inconvenient truth' for them.

Is Aspirin the New Horse Dewormer?  Aspirin is one of those drugs that has been around forever.  It is commonly used as a pain reliever, anti-inflammatory, and as a blood thinner.  Surprisingly it may also have benefit in treating COVID.  A paper in Anesthesia and Analgesia published last spring titled, "Aspirin use is associated with decreased mechanical ventilation, intensive care unit admission, and in-hospital mortality in hospitalized patients with coronavirus disease 2019."  This was a retrospective, observational study of adult patients admitted to multiple hospitals in the U.S. between March and July 2020, in the early days of COVID.  The primary outcome addressed by the researchers from George Washington University was the need for mechanical ventilation, which then, and still now, carries an extremely high chance of never leaving the ICU alive.  This was not a gold standard randomized prospective clinical trial.  That would not be feasible in this situation since study patients were already hospitalized and critically ill.

Ivermectin: The Elephant in the Room.  There are a great many unknowns and controversies associated with the COVID pandemic.  Among the most urgent are those associated with appropriate therapeutic and prophylactic interventions.  Some of the most intense disputes involve repurposed therapies — i.e., drugs that have been approved for treatment of some other condition being used as therapy for COVID.  This is the case with the anti-parasitic agent ivermectin.  Much of the controversy regarding ivermectin involves "evidence" that the drug has a benefit in treatment of COVID.  Detractors will often use the hyperbolic claim that there is no evidence that ivermectin is useful in this setting.  The truth is that there is, in fact, some evidence.  Ivermectin has been known since at least 2012 to have antiviral activity.  It has been shown to have at least some antiviral activity against a number of viruses, including HIV-1, Zika, flaviviruses, and dengue.  It is known to have in vitro activity against SARS CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID.

Federal Employees Should Not Give Up Just Yet.  Federal employees have been given until November 22 to be fully vaccinated.  Information on how the mandate would be implemented was slow in coming and is still not very clear to most employees or to the HR personnel tasked with carrying out the implementation. [...] Whether intended or not, the unknowns of the mandate implementation have caused much stress and confusion among employees and may have led many hesitant hold-outs to get the jab when they otherwise would not have, before full guidance had been issued and before any exemptions had been reviewed or denied.  There are, however, several factors for federal employees to consider when contemplating whether to give in to the vaccine mandates now or to remain unvaccinated.

COVID and the Authorities:  It's Even Worse Than We Thought.  [Scroll down]  Almost overnight, top figures in virology research and in the public-health establishment went from being worried the virus might be man-made to dismissing that possibility as a "conspiracy theory."  What were the data that so persuasively convinced Andersen, Fauci, and other experts in that February 1 meeting?  We don't know.  In fact, we know about Andersen's emails at all only because they were released under the Freedom of Information Act.  News organizations, including Buzzfeed and the Intercept, along with good-government groups, have requested thousands of pages of documents related to the pandemic.  Much of what little we know about our government's handling of the lab-leak question comes from these documents.

The Great National Showdown Over Worker Mandates For The COVID Vaccine Looms — Don't Flinch.  The U.S. economy is currently functioning with 5% unemployment and 10 million unfilled jobs.  Just imagine the economic impact of 35% unemployment and 70 million unfilled jobs.  Keep in mind, the vast majority of those 60 million jobs are the productive workforce that keep the entire machine of the U.S. functioning.  This is the workforce that keeps the lights on, garbage picked-up, streets safe, shelves stocked, stuff fixed and facilitates everything that makes the entire system of society function.  We are also down to the hardened group who are not going to take that forced vaccination.  In quantifiable terms, the increased pressure to force the jab into the arms of the American workforce has now crossed into "the law of diminishing returns."  More government pressure ain't going to yield the previous level of compliance.  This threshold crossed is also quantifiable in the 4.3 million Americans who quit working (242,000 of them in August alone).

Vaccination Rates [are] Not Linked to Lower COVID Rates, Epidemiology Paper Finds.  On Friday, the San Francisco Chronicle published an article noting that California has some of the lowest COVID-19 case rates in the US, even though the Golden State's vaccination rate lags many states that are currently struggling with the delta variant. [...] In fact, Vermont has the highest vaccination rate in the country.  Among those 65 years and older, 99.9 percent are fully vaccinated, and 74 percent of those 18-64 are fully vaccinated, according to data from the Mayo Clinic.  Yet, as the Chronicle points out, despite its high vaccination rate, Vermont recently set its single-day case record for the entire pandemic.

Biden And His Wife Walk Through High Class DC Restaurant Without Masks, Breaking DC Mandates.  This is what it looks like when the elite laugh at the rules they give to the peasants.  Joe and Jill Biden showed up maskless at Fiola Mare in Georgetown Saturday evening [10/16/2021].  [Video clip]

Hypocritical Joe Biden on 'Date Night'.  It's harder to get more hypocritical than [Joe] Biden, who has spent most of the past nine months preaching at Americans over wearing masks and getting vaccinated.  Even after he signed an executive order mandating wearing masks on federal property, he and his family violated it almost immediately, right after he signed it.  His wearing of a mask, while he demands it of others has often been hit or miss.  As we noted during his visit to Connecticut, he didn't have it on, put it on, and then took it off again.  But last night [10/16/2021], he got busted violating the D.C. mask mandate, which was put in place by his fellow Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser in July.  Since July 31, all people over age 2 are supposed to be wearing a mask indoors in any business open to the public, including restaurants.

Healthy 16-year-old boy in California DIES after receiving second dose of Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine.  A perfectly healthy 16-year-old boy in California died less than a month after receiving a second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech's Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.  The teenager received the second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on April 3 and died on April 27.  His mother filed a report to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) on July 13.  VAERS is co-managed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  The report with case ID 1466009 revealed that the teenager was attending an online class when he died.  The family is waiting for the autopsy because the doctors did not find anything wrong with him.

New Orders:  Take the Jab, or the Navy Will Ruin You.  [Scroll down]  We know that the vaccine will not prevent you, or anyone, from getting COVID.  We also know that people, included service members who have had COVID, have a robust natural immunity with active T and B cell memory that would reactivate to fight a new infection.  Statistically speaking, a 30-year-old, extremely fit SEAL, who has had COVID, has a very low risk of dying, or even being hospitalized.  That doesn't matter to the Biden administration.  Take the vaccine, or the government will ruin you.

Allison Williams out at ESPN over vaccine mandate.  Allison Williams is out at ESPN due to the company's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  The college football and basketball sideline reporter, who announced last month she was opting out of the season because she had not received the vaccine as she and her husband tried for a second child, said Friday night that her "request for accommodation" had been denied.  Effective next week, Williams said, she will be "separated from the company."  "Belief is a word I've been thinking about a lot lately, because in addition to the medical apprehensions regarding my desire to have another child in regards to receiving this injection, I am also so morally and ethically not aligned with this," Williams said in an Instagram video.  "And I've had to really dig deep and analyze my values and my morals, and ultimately I need to put them first.

Fauci says FDA panel concluded J&J shot should've been two doses.  Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday [10/17/2021] said he believes Johnson & Johnson should've doled out a two-dose COVID-19 shot — as health experts recommend getting a booster to the one-shot jab as soon as it becomes available.  The White House chief medical advisor said that the unanimous decision Friday by the Food and Drug Administration advisory panel to recommend the booster shots should be welcomed news for recipients of the vaccine.  "I think that they should feel good about it because what the advisors to the FDA felt, is that given the data that they saw, very likely, this should have been a two-dose vaccine to begin with," Fauci told ABC anchor Martha Raddatz on "This Week."

Nebraska AG's devastating critique of the suppression of effective COVID therapies.  Legal opinions usually aren't terribly fun to read, but if you've been an ivermectin and/or hydroxychloroquine advocate for use against Wuhan Plague, this one definitely will bring you much joy.  It's a rather lengthy and full spectrum opinion issued by Doug Peterson, Nebraska's Attorney General, in response to a query from the state's Department of Health and Human Services as to whether physicians can be persecuted and tormented for prescribing ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine to patients sick with the China Flu.  What the AG's response amounts to is a full and complete takedown of the conspiracy to suppress cheap and effective early Covid-19 treatments.

Washington State trooper of 22 years slams governor's vaccine mandate as he signs off for the final time after being fired because he didn't get a COVID shot.  A veteran Washington State trooper who was forced out of the job by the state's vaccine mandate has released a video of his final sign off, [...] The trooper — who did not say his name — told how he had served in the department for more than 22 years in Yakima County.  But Saturday night [10/16/2021] was his last shift, with Governor Inslee's mandate ordering most state employees to be vaccinated coming into force on October 18.

German public broadcasting staffer decries suppression of Covid information: 'I cannot do it anymore'.  Ole Skambraks is very brave mid-level employee of German public broadcaster ARD, an organization with an annual budget of $8 billion and multiple television and radio services.  He writes that he can no longer remain silent about the lopsided coverage of issues related to COVID-19 and its countermeasures, and has published what amounts to a cry from the heart at a website called Multipolar Magazin, available in German, English and French.  I take it for granted that ARD does not approve of his essay, and use of their logo here is only for informational purposes to an American audience that may not understand its size and prestige in Germany.  The situation in Germany and most other countries in Europe is similar to that in the United States, with only one viewpoint allowed, even though it changes over time.  Mass media act as enforcers of the orthodoxy.

Nebraska AG Issues Opinion on Doctors Prescribing HCQ and Ivermectin for COVID Treatment.  The Office of the Attorney General in Nebraska issued an opinion Friday in response to the request of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services that states there's no "clear and convincing evidence that a physician who first obtains informed consent and then utilizes Ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 violates the UCA (Nebraska's Uniform Credential Act)."  Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson together with his Solicitor General and Assistant Attorney General issued their opinion in response to a request by Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services CEO, Dannette Smith.  She wanted the AG's office to examine carefully whether doctors could face legal action or be subject to discipline if they prescribed the meds for COVID treatment.

Delta Air Lines CEO ditches 'divisive' COVID vaccine mandate.  Delta Air Lines is the only U.S. carrier to hold off on enforcing a coronavirus vaccine mandate for employees and CEO Ed Bastian reported that it's been an effective tactic for vaccination rates and compliance.  The Delta head revealed on "The Claman Countdown" that the company has reached a more than 90% vaccination rate and expects it to rise another 5% within the next month without a mandate in place.  "The reason the mandate was put in by president, I believe, was because they wanted to make sure companies had a plan to get their employees vaccinated," he said.

Oklahoma Governor and Attorney General Fight Back Against Federal Vaccine Mandate.  Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt released a video statement Thursday [10/14/2021] targeting the Biden administration's worker vaccine requirements.  In the video, Governor Stitt called the administration's employer vaccine mandates an action of "federal overreach" and "unconstitutional."  Supporting the governor, Oklahoma Attorney General John O'Connor released a statement Thursday calling for employers to disregard the Biden administration's upcoming vaccine and testing requirement for their employees.  It will be interesting to see how the various state attorneys general establish their standing as the federal requirement targets "individuals", not specifically state government.

As legal travelers across US-Mexico border face vaccine mandate, illegal immigrants still do not.  The Biden administration this week announced that the travel restrictions at the Canadian and Mexican land borders will be rolled back for non-essential travel for vaccinated foreign nationals, and that in January even those engaged in essential travel will need to be vaccinated — a mandate that those entering the U.S. illegally do not face.  Non-essential travel across land borders had been shut down since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic under the Trump administration.  But this week, the Biden administration announced that non-essential travelers who have been fully vaccinated will be allowed to enter the U.S. via land and ferry ports of entry.

Thanks to vax mandate, Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists face mass firings.  It's not just nurses, firefighters, cops, military troops, and airline pilots who are getting fired over rigid COVID vaccine mandates.  Now it's nuclear scientists with highly specialized knowledge and top-secret security clearances: [...] Which is quite outrageous, given that this deprives the U.S. of vital safety expertise on nuclear explosions which is the actual mission of the lab.  It's also appalling because it leaves these scientists unemployed.  They won't stay unemployed, of course.  They can take their specialized knowledge and skills to other countries.  Way to go, Joe, exporting our specialized scientists instead of our manufactured goods.

COVID is not serious enough to warrant vaccine mandates.  Most people who get COVID don't get very sick.  Some of them don't have any symptoms at all and only find out they've been infected with COVID when they test positive for it or turn out to have antibodies.  The survival rate is estimated at between 97% and 99.75%. [...] For the vast majority of the world's population, COVID is nothing more than a day or two of the sniffles.  It's just not a serious disease that calls for mandates for mass vaccination.  It's true that COVID is very contagious, but so is the common cold, and no one ever thought of shutting down the world before to prevent people from catching the sniffles.

[The] Press [is] too busy carrying Biden COVID-19 policy to investigate Southwest Airlines.  Over the weekend, the media engaged in a concerted effort to suggest that any mention that the cancellation of 1,800 Southwest Airlines flights last week was due to President Joe Biden's COVID-19 mandates are part of a right-wing conspiracy theory founded on a few online rumors.  But despite protestations from media like BuzzFeed News, which contends that union denials about a Southwest pilot work stoppage prove that there was no "sick out" by its pilots, the union denials only prove that the union understands that a work slowdown, or "sick out" would be illegal under the contract and subject both the union and union leadership to possible heavy financial penalties for losses by the airlines.

Businesses brace for Biden Covid vaccine mandate as Republicans threaten lawsuits.  Led by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Republican-run states are already gearing up to challenge the legality of the Biden administration's vaccine mandate for private companies before the Labor Department has even published the rules.  President Joe Biden last month directed the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, a tiny agency that polices workplace safety for Labor, to write rules requiring private companies with 100 or more employees to vaccinate their staff against Covid-19 or test those who aren't at least once a week.  More than 130,000 businesses across the U.S. are bracing for the new rules, which will apply to roughly two-thirds of the private sector workforce.  OSHA told CNBC it delivered its proposal to the Office of Management and Budget on Tuesday night.

What happened to the pilot?  [Scroll down]  I don't want to jump too quickly to conclusions.  We need the time and effort for rigorous scientific questioning about these possibilities.  Yet nobody's taken that time.  Forced vaccination is happening all too quickly, with all questions and worries discounted.  If the questioning part, the cause-effect studies, and the accumulation of real-time data is happening at all, it's impossible for it to keep up with the relentless drive to jab everyone.  If 86% of the 12-18-year-old population in my little burg is already vaccinated, as is the case, by the time actual research is accomplished to determine whether the vaccines will cause problems, it'll simply be too late.

Amish Covid.  When it comes to actions taken to address the Covid-19 threat, hindsight is still very much underway.  For your consideration:  a story and outcome you probably aren't hearing much about anywhere else.  It takes place in the heart of Amish country.

The Editor says...
What follows after that appears to be a transcript from a TV show, but it appears to be a report about how the Amish Mennonites have beaten Covid and achieved herd immunity without masks, vaccines, quarantines, lockdowns, or hospitals.

Ron DeSantis tells Biden he is dividing the US and trying to plunge Americans into destitution with his vaccine mandates.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took aim at President Joe Biden once again in the latest heated exchange between the two leaders over Biden's sweeping COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  Yesterday the Democratic commander-in-chief delivered a brief pandemic update from the White House in which he took veiled shots at Republican leaders who were opposed to his COVID health measures and said vaccine mandates shouldn't 'divide' Americans.  'Just think of Biden — he says "Don't make the vaccines divisive."  Don't make the vaccines divisive?  You are trying to take people's jobs away over this issue,' DeSantis said at a press conference on Friday [10/15/2021].

Chicago cops' union resisting vax mandate in a city on the brink of domination by armed criminals.  Civil order already is crumbling in Chicago, with its horrendous toll of murders, carjackings, and looting of stores spreading into downtown and affluent neighborhoods from, the ghetto strongholds where lawlessness has been rampant for years.  The one thing Chicago cannot afford to do is lose a substantial number of cops, yet the actions of Mayor Lori Lightfoot threaten to do that, pushing ahead with a vaccine mandate, whose deadline for reporting vax status has just expired at midnight Friday night [10/15/2021].

Chicago officers defying Mayor Lightfoot's vaccine mandate: 'Everybody up in arms across the board'.  John Catanzara, president of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police, said Friday [10/15/2021] Chicago Mayor Lightfoot's vaccine mandate is "absolutely wrong" and instructed other officers not to comply.  The mandate takes effect Friday and requires all police officers to be vaccinated or get tested for COVID-19 twice a week.  Police are required to provide their vaccination status to the city by the end of the day.  On "Fox & Friends," Catanzara estimated about half of his officers have been vaccinated, but he said even those who have received the vaccine agree that a mandate is wrong.

Seattle Public Schools to suspend 142 bus routes starting next week amid driver shortage.  Seattle Public Schools (SPS) announced Friday [10/15/2021] it would suspend over 100 school bus routes starting next week due to a shortage of drivers.  Starting Monday, Oct. 18, the district will cut 142 of its approximately 600 bus routes due to a "significant decrease in available bus drivers," according to an update sent to parents Friday.  The district does not own or operate the buses, and instead contracts a third-party vendor, First Student, which is currently dealing with the impacts of a nationwide driver shortage[.]  "It's our hope that the staffing shortages faced by First Student will be resolved as quickly as possible so we can resume — and improve upon — all bus service," said SPS Assistant Superintendent of Operations Fred Podesta.

COVID: a series of accidents or a planned conspiracy?  Looking back at what has transpired, a question must be asked:  Is this whole COVID mess the result of a series of random accidents and bad decision by those in authority?  Or is it a subterfuge that has been planned out in advance? [...] Playing devil's advocate, I suggest the globalists or if you will, the Davos crowd and their lackeys.  And what does this elite of the elite desire?  According to their public statements, some of which they've consistently repeated for decade, they call for one or more of the following:
  [#1]   Strengthening international organizations,
  [#2]   moving towards global government and erasing national boundaries,
  [#3]   creating complacent populations,
  [#4]   reducing world population through infertility and other means,
  [#5]   slowing economies to prevent global warming which they feel is a threat,
  [#6]   transferring wealth from the middle class to themselves,
  [#7]   empowering technocrats, and
  [#8]   eliminating representative democracy to create situations like the European Union where bureaucrats in Brussels run the show.
I submit to you, each of these globalist goals have been moved forward to one degree or another with COVID.  Donald Trump was an obstacle to the globalist agenda.  Without a doubt, the overreaction to COVID played a significant role in removing him from office.  So, is this all happenstance ... or were things planned this way?

The irrational COVID regime is driving many Americans to a healthy noncompliance.  If regular democracy isn't doing so well, maybe it's time to fall back on "Irish Democracy." [...] Irish Democracy is when the populace simply doesn't cooperate with the agenda.  Sometimes there is active sabotage, sometimes surreptitious monkey-wrenching, sometimes foot-dragging and sometimes outright noncompliance.  Sometimes it's all of those at once.  Right now, we are seeing some of that in response to vaccine mandates, mask rules and various other forms of population control that have been adopted since the pandemic struck.  Go almost anywhere with a mask mandate, and you will see some people not wearing masks at all, daring anyone to do anything about it (often, they don't).  You will also see a lot more with the mask pulled down below their noses, providing the vague suggestion of compliance without actually going along.  These people will usually pull the mask up if asked, but then pull it right back down again as soon as the asker leaves the vicinity.

School Board Served with $200 Million Lawsuit in Middle of Meeting Over Mask Mandate.  Public school boards across the country seem to think they are the ultimate authority over students.  As public institutions, these schools should be working for parents and students, not ruling over them.  Between political indoctrination and overzealous "health" mandates, however, it appears most school boards have prioritized flexing their bureaucratic muscles over providing quality education.  A group of 14 parents — with 18 children between them — in Clark County, Nevada, has had enough of this nonsense.  According to the Las Vegas Sun, the parents filed suit against the Clark County School District in federal court on Sept. 20 to eliminate its COVID-19 mask mandate.

Deaths Following Vaccination Reported in Taiwan Exceed Nation's COVID Death Total.  Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, few nations have been lauded as much for their management of the disease as Taiwan has.  Since the first cases of COVID-19 in the country were reported in February 2020, only 16,313 infections and 846 deaths have been recorded.  Despite how successfully the nation had managed the outbreak, it still enrolled itself in the World Health Organization-led COVAX exchange program and began its first wave of vaccinations on March 22, 2021.  While the nation hadn't had even a dozen deaths attributed to COVID-19 by the time the first vaccine was administered, 836 of the 846 deaths attributed to COVID-19 have occurred since the vaccination program began.  In an even more dubious display concerning the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines administered in Taiwan, the nation's Central Epidemic Command Center ("CECC") has reported that 847 deaths have been reported as adverse events following vaccinations as of October 6, a number which has risen to 850 since according to other media outlets.  That total eclipses the number of fatalities attributed to the virus itself.

Is this a carrot or a stick?
Deputy Treasury Sec'y Adeyemo: 'Only Way' Past 'Transition' That's Causing High Prices Is to Get 'Everyone' in U.S. and World Vaccinated.  During an interview with ABC News on Thursday [10/14/2021], Deputy Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyemo stated that the economy is in transition, "and as part of that transition, we are seeing high prices for some of the things that people have to buy."  And "the only way we're going to get to a place where we work through this transition is if everyone in America and everyone around the world gets vaccinated."

CPD officer explains why many officers are concerned about sharing vaccine status.  More murders, more shootings and downtown looting.  That's what a Chicago police officer says could happen this weekend, if the mayor does not repeal her vaccine mandate for the city's police department.  In a FOX 32 exclusive, we learn why many officers are concerned about providing the city with their vaccine status.  In just about 24 hours, the city will reach its vaccine mandate deadline.  Come Friday [10/15/2021] at midnight, half of the police force could be sent home.  The officer we spoke with said police understand the risk, but also believe the alternative could put their personal safety at risk.

COVID: a series of accidents or a planned conspiracy?  With the advent of the Wuhan virus in early 2020, the country has been severely disrupted, metaphorically turned upside down.  We've gone from ubiquitous mask wearing to locking down the economy to the release of untested vaccines to now harsh vaccine mandates.  And all though this torturous process, freedoms that were once taken for granted in the U.S. have been steadily chipped away.  We've even witnessed the 2020 presidential election being stolen[,] by increasing mail-in voting, extended time for voting, and overriding state election laws by a number of governors and attorneys general.  Containing the Wuhan virus was the pretext for this, and it made extensive cheating possible. [...] Today, what is often labeled a conspiracy theory is nothing more than something the ruling class finds uncomfortable being discussed.  Using their wealth and influence, the elite direct government agencies and their media stooges to ridicule and lambaste any debate that puts them in a bad light.  That's the reality we live in.

Maine Hospital Forced to Divert Trauma Patients Due to 'Unprecedented' Nursing Staff Shortages.  Vaccine mandates for COVID-19 have created extreme disorder in many facets of our lives.  Hundreds of thousands of individuals are quitting or forcibly being put on leave of absence, leaving our education, retail, police force, supply chain, healthcare system and more in disarray.  Just one example of the devastating consequences is a Maine Medical Center being forced to suspend pediatric and trauma admissions.  That's right; the federal mandates imposed by the President of the United States, Joe Biden, are directly impacting America's sick children and those in need of emergency care.

The suddenly disappearing news about Florida Covid cases.  For the last couple months there were constant stories about how DeSantis wanted people to get sick and die because he wouldn't follow the dictatorial edicts to require masks.  Those stories have disappeared, and we know why.  Cases in Florida are dropping faster than almost everywhere, and the media can't allow the public to see the truth or else people wouldn't submit.

Mainstream Media Silent After Florida Reports 3rd Lowest Rate Of Covid Infection.  The media took great joy in seeing the Florida Covid spike over the summer, but now they are being eerily quiet.  It felt like Florida was the top news story every evening on the left-wing networks as they slammed Ron DeSantis for doing a "poor job".  Funny enough, whenever covid spikes hit blue states, the media kept their mouths shut.  Now, however, they're being silent about Florida because they have just reached the 3rd lowest rate of infection in the United States.

Australia [is] building permanent covid quarantine camps for "ongoing operations".  Even though the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) is pretty much already over, at least for the unvaccinated, Australia is busily constructing new "quarantine" camps that the government there says will be needed next year to house people "who have not had access to vaccination." In order to maintain "ongoing operations" for the plandemic, Australian officials are funding the construction of massive compounds, one of which reportedly has 1,000 beds and is expected to be completed by the end of March 2022. "At this stage, the cabins will be used by domestic travelers returning from COVID hotspots," a report about the quarantine facility being erected at the Wellcamp Airport outside of Toowoomba states.  The huge facility will reportedly employ many locals, which the government says will help to boost the economy.  This is how they are marketing the project to try to lessen suspicions about it.

The Editor says...
Ignoring for a moment that it's a concentration camp for political dissidents, the report tells us that the Australian government fully expects to have a serious Covid crisis for at least another six months, regardless of what they're doing this week, because the construction won't be completed until the end of March 2022.  What happens when somebody dies in this quarantine camp?  How big is the graveyard, for those who die of Covid, and for those who are just lined up and shot?  If it's a concentration camp, questions like this must be addressed.

Here are the studies that show natural immunity provides effective protection from COVID-19.  From the beginning of the March 2020 lockdowns for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the subject of natural immunity (also called post-infection immunity) has been neglected.  Once the vaccination became widely available, what began with near silence at the beginning turned nearly into a complete blackout of the topic.  Even now, there is an absence of open discussion, presumably in the interests of promoting universal vaccination and required documentation of such vaccination as a condition of participating in public life and even the jobs marketplace.  Still, the science exists.  Many studies exist.  Their authors deserve credit, recognition, and to have their voices heard.

Pfizer whistleblower says vaccine 'glows,' contains toxic luciferase, graphene oxide compounds.  Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine vials glow fluorescent blue and contain an enzyme called Luciferase, a quality inspector for the drug company told LifeSiteNews in an exclusive interview this week.  "The vaccine glows, at least Pfizer's does," Melissa Strickler, who worked for the pharmaceutical giant for nearly 10 years, said.  "It looks like someone took a blue glowstick, cracked it open and put it in the vial, but only if there is light and it is around a dark background."  Strickler, who worked at Pfizer's large McPherson, Kansas plant, said she has inspected "hundreds of thousands of units" of vaccines in her career at the company "and never once seen anything do that, not even close."  Usually, the fluid in vials are clear like water, she said, but she photographed vials when she noticed the blue fluorescent tinge to the fluid and inquired about the ingredient to superiors.

Australia to SHUT DOWN domestic manufacturing of deadly AstraZeneca vaccine.  Australia is set to halt domestic manufacturing of the experimental and dangerous AstraZeneca Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.  In Nov. 2020, the federal government of Australia signed a contract with Australian biomedical firm CSL to manufacture 50 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine at the company's main manufacturing hub in Melbourne.  When the country's government signed its agreement with CSL, policymakers there and around the world believed ramping up the production of COVID-19 vaccines was necessary to avert a crisis.  But just one month after the AstraZeneca vaccines started getting distributed in Australia in March, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (ATAGI) pulled the pin on young Australians receiving the vaccine due to a high number of people experiencing fatal blood clots.

COVID-19 — Who benefits?  Perhaps the most startling aspect of the COVID story is that the National Institute of Health, headed by Anthony Fauci, financed research to genetically engineer coronaviruses at China's Wuhan Institute of Virology. [...] If this research was legitimate, why wasn't it done at a secure lab in the United States? [...] Vaccine-making is an astonishingly profitable field to be in these days.  The COVID vaccines created nine new billionaires, including Moderna's Stéphan Bancel, who is worth $4.3 billion.  Even China got three COVID billionaires.  There was also money to be had in keeping China from being held responsible.  The most extensively researched account of COVID's origin is by Catherine Eban in Vanity Fair.  Eban shows that, in the first instance, the lab leak theory wasn't some "fringe" right theory, as Democrats alleged.  It was, instead, the first thought of scientists with a variety of backgrounds when they heard that there was a coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, including Wuhan researcher and "bat lady" Shi Zhengli.

There is still no "hundred-employee" vaccine mandate.  First, the broad strokes.  Just over a month ago, Biden directed the Department of Labor and OSHA to develop the details of a COVID vaccine mandate for all US companies with 100 or more employees.  It appears (but it is not certain) that this mandate will allow several escape hatches:  medical and religious exemptions, and weekly testing as a substitute for vaccination.  If there are exemptions, we don't know under what terms they'll be permitted.  The Department of Labor has not yet issued the regulations framing and detailing this mandate.

OSHA and COVID-19: Another Emergency Temporary Standard.  President Biden announced in a September 9 speech that the federal Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is developing a second emergency temporary standard to address the problem of COVID-19 in the American workplace (New COVID ETS).  This was one in a series of measures the President outlined as part of his "Path Out of the Pandemic."  Some of those other measures likely will overlap with the New COVID ETS for some employers — for instance, federal contractors.  Click here for the White House webpage that outlines those additional measures.  As momentous as the New COVID ETS will be for employers nationwide, the President's comments about the New COVID ETS took up only 100 words out of a 3,600-word speech, and it offered few details of what he expects to find in the new emergency standard — and left many important questions unanswered.  The President's statement itself imposes no immediate legal obligations or penalties as far as private employers under the OSH Act.  It is simply an announcement that he has directed OSHA to promulgate the New COVID ETS, and provides a few details of what he expects it to contain.

NBA Player:  I Got Blood Clots After Vax — NBA Told Me To Keep Quiet About It.  Brandon Goodwin, an NBA player with the Atlanta Hawks, admitted recently that the reason he was forced to leave the sport was due to blood clots from the Covid vaccine.  Goodwin claims the NBA instructed him to keep the incident quiet.  "I got sick, and I never quite recovered from it.  I would always have back pain.  I was just super tired in the games.  I was so tired.  I felt like I couldn't run up and down the court.  My back was hurting.  My back really started hurting bad.  Then, I'm like, 'OK. I need to go to the doctor.[']  That's when I found out I had blood clots.  That all within the span of a month," Goodwin said in an interview.

Minnesota: Breakthrough Cases From Fully Vaccinated Account For 99% Of All New COVID Cases.  Minnesota on Tuesday reported a COVID-19 test positivity rate of 8.3% that is the highest in the vaccine era and a level of hospitalizations that hasn't been seen since the first shots against the coronavirus were administered in mid-December.  Oh, how the mainstream media loved to run headline stories on the Delta COVID surge here in the free state of Florida, dragging the name of our fantastic governor Ron DeSantis through the mud every chance they got.  Funny thing, though, the same media has no interest in reporting on COVID cases in Democrat states like Minnesota where infections, hospitalizations and deaths are skyrocketing despite having a senior population that is 93% vaccinated.

Taiwan Health Officials Are Now Reporting More Vaccine Deaths Than COVID Deaths.  In Taiwan, more deaths have been reported in those who got vaccinated than from the pandemic itself.  Taiwan's health authorities say that as of Monday, vaccination deaths had reached 865 while deaths via the virus are at 845.  The majority of vaccination deaths, over 600, were from AstraZeneca and 200 from Moderna.  [Video clip]

Navy to begin kicking sailors out who refuse COVID vaccine without waivers.  The U.S. Navy announced on Thursday it will begin halting reenlistments and transfer orders for sailors currently refusing the COVID-19 vaccines and active-duty sailors will have up until November 14 to either have an approved or pending vaccine exemption request or their second COVID-19 vaccine dose or they will face being discharged from the service.  Sailors in the Navy Reserves have until December 14 to receive their second vaccine dose.  In a press release, the Navy said after those final vaccination dates pass, it will start processing discharges for sailors who have to that point refused vaccination and don't have a pending or approved exemption.

It Appears That an American Airlines Uprising Against the Vaccine Mandate is Now Beginning.  In the aftermath of a reported Southwest "sick out," American Airlines workers appear to be carrying out their own act of vaccine mandate resistance.  There are now 251 flight cancellations and 616 flight delays for American Airlines, the majority of them at the airport in Dallas-Fort Worth.  Human Events senior editor Jack Posobiec had noted the unusual American Airlines activity earlier on Wednesday.

TSA faces vaccine mandate deadline that could force it to fire anyone unvaccinated.  Traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday may become even more chaotic this year, as about 40 percent of TSA workers face potential termination for refusing to get the coronavirus vaccine.  Approximately 24,000 employees, including some airport screeners, have until November 22 — the Monday before Thanksgiving — to get the shot or risk being fired under President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate for all federal workers.  The president announced the mandate for all federal workers last month, and said on Thursday [10/14/2021] that vaccine mandates shouldn't divide Americans as he warned that more directives were coming for private businesses.

Leaked Internal Documents Indicate That Boeing Employees Are Starting Sickout On 10/15/2021?  Two days ago the Boeing Co. has told employees they must be vaccinated against COVID-19 or possibly be fired.  The Seattle Times reports the deadline for workers at the aerospace giant is Dec. 8. [...] Last weekend, the airline industry went into chaos due to sickouts from Southwest Airlines and Jacksonville air traffic controllers.  The non-compliance directly led to thousands of flight cancellations.  And thngs could get worse as Boeing workers are planning freedom flu sickout over the VAX mandate in response to the Boeing Company's announcement on Tuesday.  According to communications obtained by Human Events, Boeing union workers claim that "Boeing has acted in bad faith" and knew "months ago" that a mandate was coming.

Joe Rogan's Dust-Up With CCN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta Exposes the Narrative.  On Wednesday [10/13/2021], CNN's chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, sat down with Joe Rogan for an extensive interview.  The reason for the appearance was Gupta's new book, World War C: [...] The lesson everyone should take away from the fallout of the interview is don't ever make the corporate media your only source of information in a crisis. [...] In his interview with Gupta, the fireworks erupted when discussing COVID-19.  Rogan was diagnosed with the virus and made a video telling his followers how he treated the illness.  The regimen included vitamins, supplements, monoclonal antibodies, and The Drug That Cannot Be Named:  ivermectin.  After Rogan's video went viral, the corporate and left-wing media led with stories about Rogan taking "horse dewormer," mocking and denigrating him.  The narrative — that COVID-19 is deadly with few available treatments — demands it.  Networks also hate Rogan, who draws more eyes and ears than any cable news host.

The Worst Is Yet To Come From Biden's Vaccine Coercion.  President Biden, his administration, corporate media, and social media are denying three realities:  [#1] The effectiveness of natural immunity and how medically unnecessary it is for the previously infected to get vaccinated.  [#2] The fact that fully vaccinated individuals are getting infected and transmitting COVID-19.  Unfortunately, some are also becoming seriously ill, being hospitalized, and dying.  This is not, as President Biden repeatedly insists, a pandemic solely of the unvaccinated.  [#3] Vaccine injuries, including death, are occurring at far higher numbers than health authorities want to admit.  "Established in 1990, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national early warning system to detect possible safety problems in U.S.-licensed vaccines," says its government website.  As of October 1, 2021, VAERS has reported 16,310 deaths after COVID shots so far — with 5,326 (33 percent) occurring on Day 0, 1, or 2 after vaccination — and 778,685 total adverse events.

Most Covid-19 Deaths were a direct result of the administration of Midazolam or Remdesivir.  [Scroll down]  The PCR test for viruses was a huge turning point.  Mullis repeatedly stated that it isn't an appropriate technique for diagnostics.  I think it could be, under carefully calibrated conditions.  But it certainly is not, used as it is around the world to diagnose Covid-19. [...] Note also that respiratory viral illness isn't obstructive.  Patients can become distressed if their gas exchange is poor & they're desaturating.  But they don't need mechanical ventilation coupled with sedation.  Instead, an oxygen mask or nasal cannula will often help a lot, and if it doesn't, your patient may be unsalvageable.

Latest COVID-19 Data Shows the Left Got It Dead Wrong About Florida, DeSantis.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has been one of the left's favorite targets, especially amid the ongoing COVID-19 saga.  Democrats and the activist media have pilloried the governor for refusing to enact the same type of onerous and draconian restrictions that other states have imposed on their residents.  They claimed he was responsible for getting Floridians killed, while paying very little attention to former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who actually did get people killed through his COVID policy. [...] According to a chart published by The New York Times, Florida's rate of COVID-19 infections is far lower than even the states that have embraced mask and vaccine mandates, and other measures.  The chart shows that Florida's 14-day rate of COVID cases dropped by 48%. The Sunshine state's case rate per 100,000 was 13.  This means Florida had the third-lowest rate of infections last week — coming in just behind Connecticut and Hawaii, which both have 11 cases per 100,000.

Dr. Bridle:  "We Made a Big Mistake... We're Inoculating a Poison".  This is what Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA technology warned about.  The spike proteins are not staying at the injection site and they are dangerous.  Protein in the blood can be very dangerous.  A Canadian cancer vaccine researcher said last week, "We made a big mistake.  We didn't realize it until now," said Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist and associate professor at University of Guelph, Ontario.  "We thought the spike protein was a great target antigen, we never knew the spike protein itself was a toxin and was a pathogenic protein.  So by vaccinating people we are inadvertently inoculating them with a toxin," the Defender reports.

Vitamin D could end covid, if only the media would talk about it.  One of the healthiest states right now as far as Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) "cases" go is Florida, which just so happens to be sunny and warm.  Many northern states, meanwhile, which are edging into autumn, are seeing a corresponding uptick in new cases.  Many of these northern states are much more "fully vaccinated" than Florida and other southern states, and yet their residents are getting sick and flooding hospitals in record numbers?  How can this be?  One answer could be the extra vitamin D that Floridians are getting due to their closer proximity to the equator.  It turns out that the Chinese Virus does not like vitamin D.  And southern states that are saturated in more vitamin D from natural sunlight — these also include Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, and Texas — are seeing a corresponding decline in illnesses.

Canadian province creates special police force to implement draconian COVID mandates.  The Ministry of Health of the Canadian province of Saskatchewan is creating a "Covid Enforcement Team (CET)" made up of retired cops to help enforce draconian vaccine passports and mask mandates.  According to Dr. Johnmark Opondo, a medical health officer with the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA), the CET is "a group of retired police officers who are really going to assist us, particularly where we are short in terms of public health inspectors."

Will Biden's Vaccine Mandates Tank The Economy?  President Joe Biden's command that private businesses require their workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 is a shocking abuse of presidential power. [...] On Sept. 9, Biden announced that businesses with 100 or more employees would have to require them to be vaccinated or take weekly COVID tests to prove they don't have the Wuhan bug.  This edict will affect as many as 100 million American workers.  One big problem:  Cities, states and counties have in the past had authority to mandate things such as vaccines, not the federal government.  Biden is literally creating a new authority for the presidency out of thin air, the kind of thing that authoritarian dictators do.  What's more, Biden's "order" is nothing of the sort.  He announced it in early September, but has never released written rules for the government to enforce.  So as of today, there is no "rule" or "order" to follow.  Just a statement to the media.  The problem is, businesses, local and state government agencies, health providers, hospitals and others are forging ahead with their own plans to force workers to take one of the vaccines.  And they're using Biden's phony "order" for cover.

British Model And Social Media Influencer Wakes Up With Bell's Palsy After Being Vaccinated.  A UK commercial model who goes by the TIKTOK name of @rocking_alopecia woke up With Bell's Palsy yesterday.  It was posted that she has been fully vaccinated.  Bell's Palsey is a major adverse reaction from COVID vaccines, especially Pfizer.  This model talks about and shows how she can't smile or talk very well without drooling.  She tells her TikTok followers she won't be able to upload videos for a while until she hopefully goes back to normal.  [Video clip]

Teens More Likely to Be Injured by Vaccines Than by COVID, Neuroscientist Says.  The latest episode of CHD.TV's "Against the Wind," with host Dr. Paul Thomas, featured an interview with Pamela Popper, Ph.D., founder and president of Wellness Forum Health and author of "COVID Operation:  What Happened, Why It Happened, and What's Next."  In the second part of the show, Christopher Shaw, Ph.D., neuroscientist, professor at the University of British Columbia and author, discussed concerns about aluminum in vaccines, the COVID mRNA vaccines for children and how he's hopeful people will rise up.  Popper, who described the government response to COVID as "the crime of the century," discussed propaganda, legal strategy, advice for employers and how a striking number of medical professionals are willing to comply with what she refers to as "escalating medical tyranny."  "We've seen a remarkable willingness of many doctors to go along with this narrative," Popper said.  "It's scary how many have bought into it."

Biden says number of unvaccinated Americans 'unacceptably high,' insists mandates 'working'.  President Biden on Thursday said the number of unvaccinated Americans still remains "unacceptably high," but insisted that his administration's vaccine requirements for the federal workforce and private employers are "working" to ensure more individuals receive shots to protect against COVID-19.  During remarks from the White House Thursday, the president touted his administration's "progress" in the "fight against the virus."  "We're making progress nationally.  Daily cases are down 47%, hospitalizations are down 38% over the past six weeks," Biden said.  "Over the past two weeks, most of the country has improved as well.  Case rates are declining in 39 states and hospital rates declining in 38 states."

Navy prepares to begin discharging sailors who refuse COVID-19 vaccine.  The U.S. Navy has set up an organization to process the discharges of sailors who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine and don't have a pending or approved exemption request on the books.  On Thursday [10/14/2021], Navy officials announced the creation of the COVID Consolidated Disposition Authority to oversee the administrative discharge process for sailors who meet the definition of "refusing the vaccine."  The Pentagon has not indicated how many Navy or other military personnel are known to be actively refusing the vaccine.  While recent media reports have claimed more than 200,000 military personnel are yet to be fully vaccinated, the number refusing for political or other reasons is not clear.

Australia's Northern Territory Annouces The Most Insane Vaccine Mandate, Get Fired And Fine 5k Dollars!.  Chief Minister Michael Gunner said employees who interacted with the public needed to get least one Covid-19 jab by November 13 or they wouldn't be allowed back to work and faced a $5000 fine.  The new directions apply to:
  •   Employees at all jobs that involve interacting with members of the public.  For example:  hospitality, banking, retail, supermarket, receptionists, hairdressers and beauty therapists
  •   Workers who come into direct contact with people at risk of severe illness from Covid-19, like Aboriginal people or those who can't be vaccinated
  •   Employees who work in a high-risk setting where there is a known risk of Covid-19 transmission or outbreak
  •   People who perform work in essential infrastructure, food or essential good security or supply, or logistics

NBA Player Admits The Vaccine Ended His Season, Maybe His Career.  Former Atlanta Hawks point guard Brandon Goodwin's season ended early last year due to "minor respiratory condition," according to a team report this past May.  The Hawks went on a deep postseason run to the Eastern Conference Finals and the team decided not to bring the Norcross graduate back after drafting Sharife Cooper and signing Delon Wright.  Goodwin has not signed with another NBA team since.  Recently, on a Twitch stream, Goodwin revealed his side of the story, and it all starts with him receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.  [Video clip]

Aussie Cop Quits, Refuses To Enforce COVID Tyranny, Says "Majority" Of Cops Feel The Same.  A female officer with Victoria Police, who served for 16 years, has resigned in protest against the use of police to enforce Covid-19 rules, saying in an interview that a "great majority" of her colleagues shared her sentiments.  Acting Senior Sergeant Krystle Mitchell has appeared on The Discernible Interviews channel on YouTube on Friday [10/8/2021], wearing her dark-blue uniform and revealing that she had been "troubled" by how police resources have been applied during the pandemic by state authorities.  Victoria Police has been tasked with making sure that people in one of Australia's most populous states abide by the lockdown restrictions, and with curbing illegal protests against the health rules and vaccination mandates, which often turn violent, resulting in numerous arrests and accusations of police brutality.  Melbourne, Victoria's capital city, holds the world record for longest lockdown.

Judge Temporarily Blocks Vaccine Mandate Requirement for California Prison Workers.  A judge temporarily blocked an order on Wednesday that required California prison workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19.  Kern County Judge Bernard Barmann issued a temporary restraining order to prevent enforcement of the mandate as the court considers a preliminary injunction request.  The vaccine mandate was scheduled to take effect Friday [10/15/2021].  It will continue to apply to other employees who work in state prisons with health care facilities.  The California Correctional Peace Officers Association (CCPOA) has opposed vaccine mandates across the state.  The union represents about 28,000 officers statewide.

Chicago Police Union Chief Tells Officers to Defy City's Vaccine Mandate.  In blunt terms, John Catanzara, head of Chicago's Fraternal Order of Police, urged his members to ignore Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot's vaccine mandate in a video on Tuesday night.  He said that her demand violated personal rights as well as the union agreement under which the officers work.  If she doesn't relent, he said, he's prepared to file suit.  Back in August, Lightfoot rolled out her vaccine mandate ordering every city employee, including police officers, to report their COVID vaccination status by Friday, October 15, or risk being put on unpaid leave.  Employees may apply for medical or religious exemptions.  This was too much for Catanzara:  [Video clip]  Lightfoot is already getting pressure to reverse her decision from aldermen who fear that Catanzara's threat is real.

White House Ready to Start Vaccinating 5-11-year-olds.  Parents Are Not.  The Biden administration is poised to stick a needle filled with experimental gene therapeutics, aka COVID vaccine, in every arm, no matter how tiny.  After all, the president claimed that we can get "back to normal" when 98 percent of Americans are inoculated.  As Biden's top medical advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, once said, "We ultimately would like to get and have to get children into that mix."  Right now, the Biden administration's COVID task force is making its final preparations for a COVID vaccination campaign intended for American children aged five to 11, according to ABC News.  The outlet obtained an audio of a phone conversation between White House COVID coordinator Jeff Zients and U.S. governors, in which Zients stated the administration possessed enough pediatric doses of the Pfizer shot for 28 million children.

The Editor says...
You would have to be intensely naïve to believe that the goalposts aren't going to move any further than they have already.  They say the big crisis will be over "when 98 percent of Americans are inoculated."  That will never happen.  And even if it does, some other stipulation will arise.  Having tasted absolute power, the many tyrants in our government — at all levels — don't want to give it up.

OSHA Sends Worker Vaccine Mandate Rule to White House for Review.  Several news outlets are noting the Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), has submitted the worker vaccine rule to the White House for review prior to publishing as an 'emergency temporary standard'.  While this may be seen as disappointing by many, the moment the rule hits the federal register, it will be subject to lawsuits before implementation.  Until the DoL/OSHA rule hits the books, the mandate is nothing except a statement of intent.  Once the emergency rule is put into the register, then various state attorneys general and private sector employers or employees will be able to seek injunctions and challenge the legality.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis stated yesterday [10/12/2021] his legal team is awaiting the rule to be published to trigger his state's legal challenge.

The Editor says...
Yes, "emergency temporary standard" is a great doublespeak name for it, since there is no emergency and it won't be temporary.

Pritzker looks to change state's Right of Conscience law amid vaccination push.  Gov. J.B. Pritzker has been working to change the Health Care Right of Conscience Act, which some have invoked in the fight against COVID-19 vaccine mandates.  The 1998 Health Right of Conscience Act bans discrimination because of such persons' refusal to receive or participate in any way in any particular form of health care services contrary to his or her conscience.  Some have said the law allows people to avoid getting the COVID-19 vaccine and evade Pritzker's executive order mandating vaccination or regularly testing for health care workers, educators and other state employees.

New Covid cases surge in Minnesota, despite vaccination efforts.  Minnesota was running out of hospital beds for Covid patients and health care workers to take care of them Wednesday as the state contended with the biggest surge in new cases and deaths this year.  Overwhelmingly, the latest victims are unvaccinated Minnesotans who caught the fast-spreading Delta variant, health officials said.  And as the weather gets cooler, the potential to catch the virus will only increase as people head indoors, they said.

Can facts be misinformation?  Here's an actual, true fact for you: "misinformation" is the new "in" meme, a label for whatever inconveniently true, accurate fact those in authority don't want to let people see or contemplate.  When an entire county colludes to create "misinformation" from facts, as Contra Costa County in California is doing, in the furtherance of the county's agenda (in this case, vaccinate everyone, because if we do, it will "end COVID").  It has now labeled disseminating actual facts a "public health crisis."  Doing so queues us up for the next step, turning our most informed and knowledgeable citizens into criminals.

Joe Rogan Confronts CNN's Sanjay Gupta About COVID Propaganda Including Ivermectin.  Modern leftists and communist ideologues spend so much time inside their own tribal echo-chamber, they do not know what to do when confronted by intellectual arguments and truth.  This is why media are so careful about who they will permit to appear on their broadcasts and panel discussions.  This is also why Big Tech needs to protect leftists by blocking anyone who carries an ability to challenge the fallacies.  If you have strong skills at framing your arguments; and if you are a quick thinker that is able to see the false premise as it is being narrated; you can chew up these progressive communists in real time.  They don't talk about it, but they know that.  This is also why the White House press corps is so carefully filtered.  If you put on the armor of truth and confront pundits, spokespeople and leftist engineers with factual assertions, they stutter, stammer and stumble.  Leftists, particularly the modern progressive leftists, have no capacity for strength in debate, because they never leave their bubbles.  Everything false in their compartmentalized world view makes sense, because it is never exposed to intellectual rigor and debate.

Joe Biden's Vaccine Mandate Doesn't Exist.  It's Just A Press Release.  Yes, we've heard all about Joe Biden's alleged vaccine mandate for private companies employing 100 or more people.  It was all over the news even before he announced it on September 9. His announcement has jeopardized the employment of millions of Americans and increased worker shortages in critical domains such as health care.  There's only one problem.  It's all a mirage.  Biden's so-called vaccine mandate doesn't exist — at least, not yet.  So far, all we have is his press conference and other such made-for-media huff-puffing.  No such rule even claiming to be legally binding has been issued yet.  That's why nearly two dozen Republican attorneys general who have publicly voiced their opposition to the clearly unconstitutional and illegal mandate haven't yet filed suit against it, the Office of the Indiana Attorney General confirmed for me.  There is no mandate to haul into court.  And that may be part of the plan.

Maine Hospital Gives Dire Warning About Healthcare Services if Forced to Fire Unvaccinated Workers.  Central Maine Medical Center, a key hospital for regional healthcare, issued a dire warning about the need to shut down critical care services last week if they are forced to fire or lay-off all the unvaccinated workers.  The hospital appealed to the Governor's office, Democrat Janet Mills, for a testing option to avoid losing some of the most important care providers in their system.  Today [10/12/2021], the hospital quantified their issue and announced they were going to suspend pediatric admissions as well as heart attack and trauma admissions, because they just will not be able to operate.  Unfortunately, the Democrat Governor has announced she doesn't care if the hospital has to shut down.  Mills' stated her unilateral jab mandate will remain in place and the vaxxed and unvaxxed citizens of Maine will die until they comply with the vaccine rules.  Because it's all about the public health right?

Studies Suggested Aspirin Lowers COVID Mortality Rates, Now the Powers That Be Are Attacking It.  According to an article released last Wednesday by the Jerusalem Post, Israeli researchers copied a test done at George Washington University where they recorded over 400 COVID patients from hospitals across the country who took aspirin for reasons unrelated to COVID itself.  This simple treatment resulted in a 44 percent reduction in needing the mechanical ventilator, reduced ICU admissions by 43 percent, and overall hospital mortality by 47 percent.  When the Israelis conducted the same test, they got very similar results and even found that aspirin takers were less likely to get a COVID infection in the first place as discovered by Dr. Jonathan Chow of the research team: [...]

American Airlines, Southwest to follow federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate, defy Texas order.  American Airlines and Southwest Airlines said Tuesday they plan to follow federal guidelines to have their employees vaccinated against COVID-19 by December, defying an order by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to block such mandates.  American Airlines, based in Fort Worth, Texas, said in a statement to USA Today that the governor's order "does not change anything" for the company and that it believes the federal vaccine mandate "supersedes any conflicting state laws."  Southwest gave the news agency a similar response.  The airline, based in Dallas, ordered all of its employees to get their COVID-19 shots by Dec. 8 to comply with a federal directive.

The Editor says...
One problem:  The federal mandate doesn't really exist, but the Texas executive order does exist.  Which one would you want to depend on in court?  As a rule of thumb, whatever you've got in writing is what you've got.  Big Brother is bluffing.

Employers Beware:  You May Be Liable for Vaccine Mandates.  Pilots are protesting Southwest Airlines' requirement that all employees must get COVID-19 vaccinations, and news reports speculated that mass cancelations of Southwest flights that began over the weekend were the result of pilots staging a "sickout."  But employee protests, sickouts, walk-outs, and terminations may not be the biggest threats employers face if they impose vaccine mandates.  Employers that are considering forcing their employees to get COVID-19 vaccines as a condition of employment should be aware they could face legal liability — and potentially for big money — if and when an employee or potential hire suffers death or other adverse health effects from the vaccine.  The federal government has given clear and blanket legal protection to itself and vaccine manufacturers.  However, the federal government has not given such clear and blanket protection to employers that force employees to take the vaccine.

Boeing will require all employees to be vaccinated, despite wary labor unions and conservative opposition.  Boeing management told its U.S. employees in an internal message Tuesday that with limited exceptions they must be vaccinated against COVID-19 by Dec. 8 or face termination.  "Compliance with these requirements is a condition of employment," states a Boeing internal presentation viewed by The Seattle Times.  "Employees who are unable to meet these requirements, and do not have an approved accommodation, by December 8 may be released from the company."  The policy will apply to roughly 125,000 employees in the U.S., about 57,000 of them in Washington state.  Employees can request an exemption "due to a disability or sincerely held religious belief," but those granted such an exemption will have to "undergo frequent testing for COVID-19" and be ready to present a negative test result upon request, the company said.

The Editor says...
Who decides whether an employee has "sincerely held religious belief[s]"?

17 Year Old Girl Who Tested Positive For COVID Gets Plastic Bag Placed Over Her Head In Hospital.  A report by the Odessa Accountability Project claims that a 17-year-old COVID patient suffering from breathing difficulties entered a hospital in Texas, only for staff to place a plastic bag over her head after she removed her face mask.  Yes, really.  A photo of the teenager posted to the group's Facebook page shows the young woman with the bag, which features the words "equipment cover," placed over her head and upper body.  She is also wearing a face mask.  You don't need to be a doctor to know the dangers of putting plastic bags over people's heads, especially if they are already suffering from breathing difficulties.

Latest Abbott executive order bans all covid "vaccine" mandates in Texas, even in private sector.  It is now prohibited for any entity in Texas to impose a Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) "vaccine" mandate, thanks to a new executive order signed by Gov. Greg Abbott.  On October 11, Abbott issued EU No.  GA-40 related to prohibiting vaccine mandates, "subject to legislative action."  That EO delineates that no entity in the Lone Star State:  "... can compel receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine by any individual, including an employee or a consumer, who objects to such vaccination for any reason of personal conscience, based on a religious belief, or for medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19."

US government pays Merck $712 for 5-day molnupiravir course that only costs $17.74 to manufacture.  According to a report by drug pricing experts at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and King's College Hospital in London, a five-day course of molnupiravir only costs $17.74 to produce.  So why is Merck charging the U.S. government $712, or over 40 times the production price of the drug?  Molnupiravir is making waves because the new drug is allegedly a "huge advance" in the treatment of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) and it was developed with funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Defense (DoD).  On Oct. 8, it was announced that molnupiravir reduced the risk of hospitalization among clinical trial volunteers with moderate or mild illness by 50 percent, suggesting that it may be key to ending the coronavirus pandemic.  Monoclonal antibodies are an antiviral treatment that is administered intravenously.  But as a pill, molnupiravir is more accessible.

Australian Officials Send 6-Year-Old Boy With Cerebral Palsey Into COVID Prison After He Returns From Brain Surgery In The US.  There is growing outrage with Queensland Health's tough quarantine measures after a six-year-old boy with cerebral palsy was denied an exemption to quarantine at home.  Lenny Silveira and his father Fabio are holed up in a Sydney hotel room after the young boy underwent major surgery for his condition in the US.  Because their flight back to Australia had to stop in Sydney, the Queensland Government has refused their plea to participate in the home quarantine trial due to the risk of bringing coronavirus in from NSW.  [Video clip]

Southwest Airlines "sickout" protest spreads to Amtrak, which is canceling trains due to employees refusing covid "vaccination".  After announcing that nearly all of its 18,000 employees will need to be "fully vaccinated" for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) by November 22, Amtrak incurred a "sickout" much like the one that Southwest Airlines currently faces.  Amtrak employees who do not want to permanently alter their DNA with experimental gene therapy walked off the job, reports indicate, leaving nobody to man the trains and get them from point A to point B.  In a tweet, Amtrak explained that at least two trains scheduled to leave on October 10 had to be canceled "due to unforeseen crew issues."  The company promised that "alternate transportation" would be provided to stranded passengers.

VAERS: At least 160,000 Americans have likely died from covid vaccines.  If you extrapolate it out based on what we currently know about underreporting, the latest data from VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) suggests that upwards of 160,000 Americans may have died so far from Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) "vaccines."  Since last December when the injections were first released as part of "Operation Warp Speed," there have been 16,310 officially reported deaths from Chinese Virus shots logged into VAERS.  Since as little as one percent of vaccine injuries ever get reported to VAERS, the true number could be as high as 1.631 million U.S. deaths.  A more conservative estimate might use a factor of 10, which would point to around 163,100 U.S. deaths.  Whichever figure is correct, we at least know that there are far more people dying from Chinese Virus injections than the government is letting on, and people need to know about it so they can make an informed decision about whether or not to join the statistics.

Bush-appointed federal judge declares no such thing as natural immunity.  On October 8, U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney, an appointee of George W. Bush, ruled against a plaintiff who requested an exemption from having to get "vaccinated" for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19), denying the existence of her immune system.  Jeanna Norris, an employee at Michigan State University (MSU), sued her employer for trying to force herself and others to get injected with "Operation Warp Speed" poisons.  Norris argued that she already tested "positive" for the alleged virus in the past and now has natural immunity to it.  Reports indicate that Norris was further able to present two antibody tests showing that she had, in fact, previously been infected with Chinese Germs.  Norris' doctors also confirmed that she does not need to get injected with any Fauci Flu shots because she is already protected against covid due to her own immune system.

Jen Psaki Accidentally Confirms That No Biden Federal Vaccine Mandate Actually Exists.  White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made the surreal argument on Tuesday that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott are "putting politics ahead of public health" by protecting citizens' fundamental freedom of choice on Covid-19 vaccines.  In the course of her diatribe, however, Psaki admitted something that has been bubbling on the media backburners for some time:  Biden's vaccine mandate currently doesn't even exist.  [Video clip]

"We are Not Going to Fire Any Employees Over This": Southwest CEO Comes Out in Opposition to Biden Vaccine Mandate.  Southwest CEO Gary Kelly had a major announcement on Tuesday [10/12/2021] about the vaccine mandate the airline recently issued:  His company won't be enforcing it.  During an interview with ABC News on Tuesday, the CEO said that no employees would be fired over the company's vaccine mandate.  Earlier, the airline announced that all employees needed to get vaccinated against COVID-19 by November 24 or face termination.  "We are not going to fire any employees over this," Kelly said.

Think Carefully About Your COVID Passport and Authorized Worker Status, Before They Tell You There's an App for That.  Right now, as you are reading this, under the guise of enhancing your safety, the U.S. federal government is in discussions with multinational corporations and employers of citizens to create a more efficient process for you to register your vaccine compliance.  You may know their conversation under the terminology of a COVID passport.  The current goal is to make a system for you to show your authorized work status; which, as you know, is based on your obedience to a mandated vaccine.  Beta tests are being conducted in various nations, each with different perspectives and constitutional limitations based on pesky archaic rules and laws that govern freedom.  For the western, or for lack of a better word 'democratic' outlook, Australia is leading the way with their technological system of vaccination check points and registered state/national vaccination status tied to your registration identification.  The checkpoints are essentially gateways where QR codes are being scanned from the cell phones of the compliant vaccinated citizen.  Yes comrades, there's an App for that.

The Editor says...
The requirement to present a QR code on a cell phone automatically means that everybody must carry a cell phone, which I don't.

Coachella scraps its mandatory vaccine rule and will allow people with a negative covid test.  The Coachella Music Festival is pulling the plug on their original plan to enforce mandatory vaccines for ticketholders when it returns in 2022.  The fest, which makes its comeback to Indio, California April 15-17 and April 22-24, 2022 after missing 2020 and 2021, will not require concertgoers to have the shot.  The festival's official Instagram page made the announcement, saying that the decision was based on recent COVID statistics.

US to Open Canada, Mexico Borders For Fully Vaccinated Travelers Next Month:  Officials.  The United States plans to reopen its land borders with Mexico and Canada to non-essential travelers fully vaccinated against COVID-19 starting in early November, Biden administration officials said on Tuesday [10/12/2021].  The restrictions for non-essential travel at the country's land borders have been in place since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.  News of the new rules from the Department of Homeland Security comes just weeks after President Joe Biden announced similar planned requirements for international air travelers.  Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is set to formally announce the rules on Wednesday, Biden administration officials told reporters during a press briefing.  "Today and tomorrow, we are announcing that we will be implementing similar requirements for foreign nationals traveling across the land border from Canada and Mexico," said White House deputy coordinator Natalie Quillian.  "To be fully vaccinated is an important step that will further enhance the safety of international travel and the safety of Americans at home."

I'd like to see the government more concerned about individual liberty and less concerned about safety.

White House Taunts Texas and Florida for Fighting Vaccine Mandates:  Joe Biden Will Override State Laws.  The White House on Tuesday warned Republican governors of Texas and Florida that President Joe Biden would override their efforts to fight coronavirus vaccine mandates in their states.  "We know that federal law overrides state law," she said referring to state attempts to ban vaccine passports.  She accused Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott of playing politics by issuing executive orders that fight vaccine passports.  "Why would you be taking steps that prevent the saving of lives that make it more difficult to save lives across the country or in any state?" she asked.  Psaki argued that the governors were "putting politics ahead of public health."  "Every leader should be focused on supporting efforts to save lives and end the pandemic," she said.

The Editor says...
[#1] Unless compulsory vaccinations are among the federal powers enumerated in the Constitution, the states can reject, override, or ignore them.  The federal government will then demand that the states comply "or risk federal funding."  [#2] Sometimes saving lives is not the highest priority.  Things like communism and tyranny and forcible injection of who-knows-what are bigger threats than mere death.  Just ask Patrick Henry.  [#3] If the ultimate goal was saving lives (and it isn't), the distribution of the so-called vaccine, voluntary or not, would be stopped immediately while someone looks into the rash of sudden post-vaccination deaths and injuries.

We Don't Need Your Permission:  COVID Clown Offers Advice on Halloween Trick-or-Treating.  Dude, go away.  The more you talk the more hesitant people become regarding getting vaccinated for the coronavirus.  The more you do television hits, the more people just tune out the whole pandemic — and rightfully so.  We have three vaccines.  COVID has a near 99 percent survivability rate.  Over half the nation has been vaccinated.  Tens of millions more have already had and recovered from the infection.  There will be no more lockdowns.  Sports stadiums are packed.  It's over.  He's just yelling into the air.  The only people who listen are the coronabros and gals who would rather remain in total fear.  These are the idiots who would wear four masks and bark like a dog it that were a true COVID recommendation.  Now, he says that it's too soon to decide if we can see our families for Christmas.  Who [...] does this guy think he is?  First, what about Thanksgiving.  Second, everyone is seeing their loved ones for Christmas.  Sorry, Tony — you don't have a say.  You don't have the authority.  And we don't need your permission, [...]

Psaki Touts Biden's Vaccine Press Release As 'Federal Law' Before Admitting No Official Rule Exists.  White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki touted President Joe Biden's vaccine press release directing businesses with 100 or more employees to require the COVID-19 jab as "federal law" on Tuesday, in an attempt to downplay efforts by Republican governors to secure medical freedom for their constituents.  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed an executive order on Monday banning COVID-19 shot mandates by any entity in the Lone Star State.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has also taken action to prevent institutions in his state from requiring "vaccine passports." [...] She also claimed that Biden's order is "federal law" that supersedes any order by a state government.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Outlines Objective to Protect Workers From Being Fired Over Vaccine Status.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis held a press conference earlier today from St.  Pete Beach.  One of the major issues being discussed was the employment threat over vaccine status.  Governor DeSantis outlined his position that no one should be fired for their vaccinated status and explained his outlook on that issue specifically.

Chicago Police Union Warns Of Workforce Shortage, Threatens Suit.  The chief of the union that represents rank-and-file Chicago police officers warned that the force could be at half-strength over the weekend as a result of a City Hall mandate that officers must be either vaccinated against COVID-19 or tested regularly for the coronavirus.  Saying the mayor's office has refused to bargain in good faith, John Catanzara, head of Chicago Lodge 7 of the Fraternal Order of Police, or FOP, said the union planned to file a class action lawsuit if city officials follow through on a promise to place police officers into "no-paid" status for refusing to participate in the city's vaccination portal.  "All I can tell you is, if, [as] we suspect, the numbers are true, and we get a large number of our members to stand firm on their beliefs, that this is an overreach, and they're not going to provide the information in the portal or submit to testing, then it's safe to say that the city of Chicago will have a police force at 50 percent or less for this weekend coming up," Catanzara said Tuesday in a video message.

Washington's Vaccine Lawsuits.  The 19th-century art critic John Ruskin once observed that the qualities of the rich and the poor differ greatly.  The rich, according to Ruskin, will, generally speaking, be industrious, prompt, covetous, methodical, insensitive, ignorant, and proud.  The poor, on the other hand, will be made up of a motley crew of "the entirely foolish, the entirely wise, the idle, the reckless, the humble, the thoughtful, the dull, the imaginative, the sensitive, the well-informed, the improvident, the irregularly and impulsively wicked, the clumsy knave, the open thief, and the entirely merciful, just, and godly person."  When reading the lawsuits against Governor Jay Inslee's vaccine mandates in Washington state, this quote comes to mind.  Those resisting are a motley crew of dissenters, of state troopers, healthcare workers, firefighters, women, men, black, white, single, married, pregnant, not pregnant, those who have already had COVID, those who don't know if they've had COVID, the very sick, the very healthy, the anti-vaxxers, the pro-vaxxers (who normally take vaccines but don't want this one), the very religious, the anti-religious, and everything else in between.

Southwest CEO backs down, will not fire employees who refuse to get vaxxed.  Chalk this up as a major victory for personal autonomy and liberty!  Even while refusing to admit that resistance to vaccination had anything to do with the massive disruption to operations that occurred last weekend, Gary Kelly, CEO of Southwest Airlines, backed off from earlier policy and announced that employees who refuse to receive COVID gene therapy "vaccines" will not be terminated.

Gov. Murphy, NJ teacher union heads reportedly caught maskless despite mandate.  A New Jersey teachers union posted, and then quickly deleted, online photos that show its leaders and Gov. Phil Murphy going maskless at a fundraising event, according to reports.  The expose came after Murphy imposed a mask mandate on teachers, staffers, students and visitors in all of the Garden State's schools in August to prevent the spread of the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus.  It also made Murphy — an outspoken proponent of wearing masks who once said it should be a "national requirement" — the latest Democratic governor to be caught in an embarrassing moment of hypocrisy — without one at an event despite requiring others to mask up.

Record 4.3 Million Workers Quit Their Jobs in August Despite Strong Economy:  Now We Know Why.  COVID cases have since been on the decline nationally, as noted by CNBC, though some health care professionals worry about another rise during the colder months.  Hmm I wonder who "some health care professionals" are?  You 'spose one of their names start with an "F" and ends in "auci"?  The attention-whoring Keebler Elf will continue to bang that drum until he can no longer hold a drumstick.

Sen. Ron Johnson Says Lives Are Being Lost Due to Big Tech Censorship of Conservatives.  Censorship of videos and written posts on major social media outlets about successful treatments of victims of the CCP virus — also known as the novel coronavirus — are causing people to lose their lives, according to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.).  "Everything to do with COVID has been most troubling because the internet could have been used so helpfully, so powerfully, by allowing doctors to disseminate their practices of medicine," Johnson told reporters during a virtual news conference hosted Tuesday [10/12/2021] by the Media Research Center (MRC) and the MRC blog Free Speech America (FSA).  "I remember doctors doing videos out of New York recognizing that ventilators weren't working.  I remember a couple of doctors out of California talking about how they were treating COVID with repurposed drugs and those videos were taken down, they were censored," Johnson said.

The police and sheriffs protect us.  Or do they?  Will they?  Ostensibly democratic governments around the world have reacted shamefully to the spread of COVID, with law enforcement personnel helping them abuse their power.  What has happened in New Zealand and parts of Australia is truly frightening.  Those two formerly free and democratic nations have seen the exercise of cruel totalitarianism in the past months.  Despite the fact that lockdowns have not mitigated the spread of COVID anywhere in the world, despite the failure of mask mandates to affect the number of cases when compared to regions without mask mandates, some states in Australia and all of N.Z. have continued the most rigid restrictions, and their citizens are suffering the consequences.

Research Proposal From 2018 Shows Remarkable Similarities to Pandemic Outbreak.  The remarkable similarities between a recently leaked 2018 proposal from EcoHealth Alliance head Peter Daszak and the defining characteristics of COVID-19 raise new questions regarding the origins of the pandemic.  The proposal, dated March 27, 2018, sets out the organization's plan to create entirely new coronaviruses through the synthetic combination of preexisting virus backbones.  It describes how those viruses were going to be made more virulent in humans by the insertion of a furin cleavage site, a feature that distinguishes COVID-19 from all other SARS-related coronaviruses.  The plan also envisaged the creation of an aerosolized vaccine that could be used to immunize wild bat populations.  Daszak's proposal, which was leaked by a whistleblower to DRASTIC, an online community of researchers investigating the origins of the pandemic, has since been authenticated by Linfa Wang, one of the scientists who was involved in Daszak's proposal.

How About Some COVID-19 Data Transparency?  ince the early days of the pandemic, the public has been misled and misinformed, the goalposts pulled down and taken out of the stadium, and the data too often puzzling.  Much of the country has lost confidence in politicians and public health officials.  It's important to know if those doubts are legitimate or misplaced.  One route to the truth would be a federal grand jury probe that would determine if the case and death counts have been inflated and not reflective of reality.  Would it be a witch hunt?  A political sideshow?  No.  It would be a sober and justifiable inquiry.  The nation deserves to know if a crisis was manufactured or real.  If the numbers are accurate, then a probe will go a long way toward restoring confidence in our public health officials.  If they're not, then someone needs to be held accountable for the errors, negligence, or intentional deception that hurt so many and divided a country.

Why Are So Many People Still Dying from COVID?  Are more people dying now from COVID, the vaccines, or both?  It is challenging to separate these out as the CDC does not consider one vaccinated until at least two weeks after the final vaccine dose, which in the case of Pfizer or Moderna is the second dose.  If most vaccine reactions, even the fatal ones, occur within two weeks of the shot, these individuals would be considered unvaccinated and their deaths attributed to natural causes, falsely lowering the vaccine-associated death counts.  Is the COVID PCR test too sensitive, with upwards of 90 percent false positives as explained by the New York Times last year?  But this test has not changed from last year to this year and would not explain the increase in fatalities.  The most concerning possibility is that the vaccines are not providing recipients with true immunity, giving us a false sense of security that these vaccines prevent severe illness and death as effectively as advertised.  We know from CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky that the vaccines don't prevent infection or transmission, but we are told they reduce the risk of hospitalization and death.

Massachusetts Governor Activates National Guard to Test School Children For Covid.  Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker (R) on Tuesday announced he activated the National Guard to help test school children for Covid.  Baker activated 450 members of the Massachusetts National Guard for two missions:  200 members will support Covid testing in K-12 schools and up to 250 member will be used to offset staffing shortages at the Department of Correction (DOC), the governor's office said. [...] Last month Governor Baker activated the National Guard to take children to school amid a massive shortage of bus drivers.  Up to 250 Guard troops were activated mid-September to fill the shortage.  Dozens of state trooper have also resigned because of Governor Baker's mandatory vaccine mandate.

CHI Memorial Hospital in Tennessee memory-holes Tiffany Dover, the nurse who passed out on live television after getting early covid "vaccine".  As far as Chattanooga-based CHI Memorial Hospital is concerned, Tiffany Dover, a nurse who used to work there before she collapsed during a live press conference right after getting early "vaccinated" for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) no longer exists.  CHI recently deleted all of its tweets about Tiffany Dover, who has since completely disappeared, from its official Twitter account.  These tweets were tweeted right after the collapse incident to reassure the public that Tiffany Dover supposedly did not die from her injections and was doing just fine at home "resting."  Rumors have since circulated that Tiffany Dover's collapse on live television probably did her in because the public was never given a legitimate follow-up about her health status.  On December 18, 19 and 21, just days after Tiffany Dover received her shot, CHI tried to perform damage control by tweeting that Tiffany Dover was okay, but nobody has seen or heard from her directly in nearly a year.

Cleveland Clinic Delays Ohio Man's Kidney Transplant Days Before Surgery Over Unvaccinated Donor.  A vaccinated Ohio man who is in dire need of a new kidney is having his surgery delayed due to the Cleveland Clinic's new policy requiring coronavirus vaccinations for organ transplant recipients and donors.  After more than a year of pain, tests, and finally finding a match, Mike Ganim was just days away from getting a new kidney before the Cleveland Clinic announced that patients on the transplant list — as well as living donors — are now required to be vaccinated against the Chinese coronavirus, according to a report by News 5 Cleveland.

Cleveland Clinic joins Colorado Hospital and says it will stop performing organ transplants for unvaccinated people.  The Cleveland Clinic will no longer offer organ transplants to people unvaccinated against COVID-19 due to concerns patients could be at a high risk of contracting the virus.  The hospital says the reason for the policy change is the immunosuppressant drugs transplant recipients must take after receiving a new organ so their body does not reject it.  Unvaccinated people will also no longer be able to become a living organ donor over fears Covid may be able to transmit through the procedure.

Which is more dangerous:  An organ transplant, or the flu?

Federal Judge Rules Religious Exemptions to Vaccine Mandates Must Be Allowed.  A federal judge in New York ruled on Tuesday that religious exemptions for health care workers must be upheld in spite of the state's sweeping COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  Then-Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the mandate in August.  The governor's office said on Aug. 16 that "all healthcare workers in New York State, including staff at hospitals and long-term care facilities... including nursing homes, adult care, and other congregate care settings, will be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by Monday, September 27."

Large Canadian Town Bars Unvaccinated Couples From Getting Married.  After Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal Government imposed one of the most restrictive vaccine mandates in the developed world, one Canadian town has taken medical tyranny to the next level by refusing to grant marriage licenses to couples that aren't fully vaccinated.  The Town of Oakville, Ontario, a small city with more than 200,000 residents, will not allow a couple to apply for a marriage license unless they both show proof of full vaccination.

Airline Pilot Warns Biden's Mandate Will Create 'Massive Disruptions' of Shipping and Travel.  An airline pilot and activist for individual liberty told Fox News on Monday [10/11/2021] that situations such as mass flight cancelations will become more common if the Biden administration refuses to backdown from its hardline stance against coercing Americans to get vaccinated against COVID.  Speaking on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Joshua Yoder, a commercial airline pilot and the co-founder of a group called U.S. Freedom Flyers, cautioned that events such as this past weekend's Southwest Arlines flight cancellations could soon be unavoidable.  The reason:  Yoder said the people who do skilled jobs, such as flying planes and driving trucks, will stand against President Joe Biden and their own employers.

Nurse Whistleblower Debunks Leftist Lie That Hospitals Are 'Out of Beds' Because of Unvaccinated Patients.  A former nurse who was reportedly fired after his religious exemption to the COVID-19 vaccine requirement was rejected has shed some rather harsh light on hysterical claims that ICU beds are at capacity because of all the sick unvaccinated people.  Speaking with LifeSiteNews, Brad McDowell, who was employed as an emergency room nurse at Valley Health Systems in Winchester, Virginia, explained that the "at capacity" status has less to do with unvaccinated patients and more to do with unvaccinated staffers that are being let go for their resistance to hospital, state and federal mandates.  "They can't open a bed that they don't have a nurse and a tech to staff," he explained in a video interview that was published over the weekend, after being asked by interviewer Jim Hale if the health care worker shortage supposedly caused by the pandemic is, in reality, a result of strict vaccine mandates that many health care professionals have refused to adhere to.

Italy's "Vaccine" Mandate Sparks Violent Protests.  Governments of the world are pushing this "vaccine" that isn't a vaccine hard enough that they are going to be the cause of their own demise.  Italy, which has one of the strictest COVID-19 vaccine mandates on Earth is now erupting in violent protests over it.  All Italians will soon be required to show a coronavirus "Green Pass," proving either vaccination, recovery in the past six months, or a negative COVID-19 test from the past 48 hours to enter their workplaces, according to a report by CBS News.  Expect a similar reaction if the pressure continues on the population of the United States.  The national mandate will go into effect on October 15, which is Friday.  The Green Pass has been required in Italy since August for anyone wishing to dine indoors, use long-distance trains, or almost any form of leisure activity.  But the new restrictions go further than any other country in the world, and some workers face suspension without pay if they fail to comply.  "I consider this to be criminal and cowardly blackmail by our highest institutions," said Maria Ballarin, a retiree who joined the march.  "The popular revolution will not stop, with or without us, until the Green Pass is definitively withdrawn," one person said.  "Saturday was a watershed between the old and the new.  The people decided to raise the level of the clash."

Canadian ER Doctor Quits:  At Least 80% of Patients Are Double Vaxxed.  Dr. Rochagné Kilian, an ER doctor in Owen Sound, Ontario, resigned in protest of mandatory vaccines and the corruption of our health services.  Dr. Kilian came to public attention when the recording of the Grey Bruce hospital board was released.  In that recording, board president Gary Simms cannot provide any evidence whatsoever of his dire predictions of a 'tidal wave of pediatric Covid cases' which he says are coming this fall, while threatening Dr. Kilian when she spoke up for the truth.  Dr. Kilian has spoken out before regarding the growing corruption of our health care services and has shown leadership and integrity by resigning from her position.  "At least 80% of the ER patients in the past three months were double-vaxxed", says Dr. Kilian of her informal survey of patients entering the ER with serious medical issues.  "How many people are we going to kill if we keep following this narrative?"

Australia Building Quarantine Camps for 'Ongoing Operations'.  Despite some states tentatively beginning to lift lockdown restrictions, Australian authorities are building quarantine camps that won't be completed until next year in order to prepare for "ongoing operations" and to house those "who have not had access to vaccination."  According to ABC Australia, one such 1,000-bed quarantine facility at Wellcamp Airport outside Toowoomba will be fully completed by the end of March 2022.  "At this stage, the cabins will be used by domestic travellers returning from COVID hotspots," states the report.  However, it also makes clear that the camp will be used for "ongoing operations" and will be a source of employment for the local area.

Attorney: Entire Family Given COVID Vaccine Instead of Flu Shot, 2 Children Now Suffering Heart Issues.  Walgreens is having a rough time on the public relations front, as incidents keep arising where they are allegedly mixing up flu shots with coronavirus vaccines.  A family in Evansville, Indiana, said they were all given adult doses of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine instead of the flu shot on Oct. 4, WFIE-TV reported.  The family's two children are 4 and 5 years old, and the Pfizer vaccine has not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for their age group.

Attorney Says Denver Cop Coerced Into Getting COVID Vaccine Now Hospitalized with Stroke Symptoms.  After Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock announced a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all city employees in August, Jose Manriquez, a seven-year veteran with the Denver Police Department and father of four, reluctantly received his first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Aug. 22.  That week, Manriquez told "Fox & Friends" co-host Ainsley Earhardt, he began experiencing body aches and pain in his legs.  The following week, the pain grew worse.  Driving home from work one evening, he said, he realized he could no longer feel his feet.  He told Earhardt he was unable to feel the gas pedal or the brake and had to call for help.

Lawmakers: CDC May Be Manipulating COVID Data, Underreporting Vaccine Side Effects by Factor of 5.  It has long been obvious that the so-called health "experts" have a political agenda when it comes to the coronavirus.  Two Republican state senators are now alleging statistical manipulation by two government health agencies.  According to The Epoch Times, Oregon state Sens. Kim Thatcher and Dennis Linthicum sent a letter to acting U.S. Attorney Scott E. Asphaug on Aug. 16 asking him to open a grand jury investigation into the reporting of coronavirus statistics by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the FDA.

Sun Tsu and the Virus From Wuhan.  If the virus was deliberately seeded into this country, it is not the enemy — it's the weapon.  The enemy lay elsewhere.  If we are to be open-minded, we must consider that while China halted all travel and grounded all domestic air travel in February 2020 to contain the pandemic, it continued international flights unabated until March 27.  With less supporting evidence is the assertion of a high-ranking Chinese defector that the virus was intentionally released in October 2019 into the World Military Games in Wuhan.  Biological warfare is not new.  The most significant event occurred in 1346 in the Siege of Caffa, a Venetian port on the Black Sea.  Muslim forces catapulted plague-infected corpses into the fortified city to infect the population.  Fleeing by sea to Venice and Genoa, those who escaped carried the Black Death to Europe.

Nets ban Kyrie Irving from team until he's vaccinated.  Brooklyn has told Kyrie Irving he can't be a part-time Net.  The All-Star point guard has refused to get a COVID-19 vaccine, and the Nets announced Tuesday [10/12/2021] that he won't be part of the team until he does.  In essence, get vaxxed or get gone.  "Given the evolving nature of the situation and after thorough deliberation, we have decided Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant," Brooklyn general manager Sean Marks said in a statement Tuesday morning.

Southwest CEO says he's against vaccine mandates, blames Biden.  Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly says he's against making his employees take the COVID-19 vaccine, but President Biden has forced his hand with the federal mandate.  "I've never been in favor of corporations imposing that kind of a mandate.  I'm not in favor of that, never have been," Kelly told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" on Tuesday [10/12/2021] regarding the COVID-19 vaccine.  Kelly said his employees "have very strong views on both sides" of the issue of vaccine mandates but they were being forced to take it given Biden's executive order.  "The executive order from President Biden mandates that all federal employees and then all federal contractors, which covers all the major airlines, have to have a mandate vaccine in place by Dec. 8 so we're working through that," Kelly said.

911 systems in danger of collapsing as first responder shortages further complicated by opposition to COVID vaccines.  For a year, Americans hailed their first responders — firefighters, police and EMS personnel — as well as frontline doctors, nurses and healthcare staff as they fought to keep us safe and healthy amid a fast-spreading COVID-19 pandemic.  These people did their work like they always have:  Selflessly, bravely and, in the case of street personnel, for substandard pay... and all without a COVID vaccine.  Now that vaccines are available, however, not all of these first responders are keen to get the jab.  They have varied reasons for not wanting to do so; some have religious objections, while others are not heavy into injecting a substance into their bodies that until about 15 minutes ago was still experimental.  Others say they don't need a COVID-19 vaccine because they have had the virus and they now have natural immunity.

'Fauci' Documentary Is Getting Rough Reviews From Rotten Tomatoes Users.  National Geographic's new documentary "Fauci," released on Disney Plus Oct. 6, has inspired numerous Rotten Tomatoes users to write scathing reviews of the film that covers White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci.  So far, over 250 users have gone out of their way to critique the documentary on Rotten Tomatoes, resulting in an "audience score" of 4% at the time of publication.  "Audience scores" began appearing on the website on Oct. 11, even though the theatrical release for "Fauci" landed on Sept. 10 and Oct. 6 for streaming on Disney Plus.  According to Rotten Tomatoes' FAQ, "the Audience Score becomes available after the theatrical release date for a film.  Only after that will users be able to leave an audience review or rating for that film."

'Straight Up Propaganda': Audience Reviews Chastise Fauci Documentary.  There is a reason why I look at audience reviews more than critic reviews for movies and TV shows. [...] One person reviewed Fauci on Rotten Tomatoes.  Justin B. wrote:  ["]While the film had some interesting back story regarding Fauci's career and family history, as a documentary it is severely lacking.  While it is a challenge to give a truly analytical and unbiased assessment, the producers here don't even try.  They have some background noise of people saying mean things about Fauci and then make clear those are unfair and go about interviewing only people who fawn all over him.  There are no interviews of anyone who question the quality of the job he has done.  There is no real assessment of the quality his tenure during the pandemic.["]  I see people saying no one can leave a review for the movie.  I logged into Rotten Tomatoes and could leave a review if I wanted to write one.  I refuse to watch it.

3,741 New Breakthrough Cases in Mass., 46 More Deaths in Vaccinated People.  Massachusetts health officials on Tuesday [10/5/2021] reported nearly 4,000 new breakthrough cases over the past week, and 46 more deaths.  In the last week, 3,741 new breakthrough cases — infections in people who have been vaccinated — were reported, with 125 more vaccinated people hospitalized, Massachusetts Department of Public Health officials said Tuesday.  Their report brings the total number of breakthrough cases to 40,464, and the death toll among people with breakthrough infections to 300.

Staff shortages lead to 'unprecedented' disruptions for Washington State Ferries.  At the Anacortes Ferry Terminal on Saturday [10/9/2021], the ferry M/V Samish sat at the dock.  Though cars were lined up waiting to go to the San Juan Islands, the ferry did not sail.  The Samish, one of three vessels serving the Anacortes-San Juan Islands route, was taken out of service Saturday and Sunday due to the lack of a crew, leaving the route with just two boats.  Other ferry routes in the region were also operating with fewer vessels due to crew shortages, resulting in dozens of canceled sailings.  On Friday, Washington State Ferries canceled 150 sailings.

Timeline of The Great Reset, Remaking the World Into a 1984 Dystopia.  There is an excellent timeline of The Great Reset at The Sociables.  It's very informative, complete with videos and links.  The following is simply a brief overview of the timeline.  It is worthwhile to look at the full article which traces it from The Great Reset's foundation in 2014 on, until its present incarnation.  It's 2014 and a technocrat Nazi has an idea for a great reset of the world economy.  It will work if the entire planet is in on it, Tim Hinchliffe, editor of The Sociables writes.  A pandemic could make it happen.  "The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future," Klaus Schwab, President of the World Economic Forum (WEF) said.  It took Schwab and the Davos elite about six years to watch their great reset ideology grow from a tiny Swiss seed in 2014 to a European super-flower pollinating the entire globe in 2020.

mRNA Vaccine Inventor 'Blocked' From Reading New England Journal of Medicine.  Dr Robert Malone, the inventor of mRNA vaccines and RNA as a drug, has apparently been banned from reading the New England Journal of Medicine after they decided to manually block his IP address in a stunningly "petty act."  "This is fascinating.  I am apparently no longer allowed to read the New England Journal of Medicine," Dr Malone said Thursday [10/7/2021] on Twitter.  "They have blocked my internet protocol address."  Malone said he's aware of how to get around IP blocks "but what is fascinating is that the NEJM would even take the trouble to do this petty act."

Texas governor bans Covid-19 vaccine mandates by any employer in state.  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday issued an executive order banning all state entities, including private employers, from enforcing vaccine mandates, the latest escalation in the Republican's resistance to public health measures during the Covid-19 pandemic.  The order states that "no entity in Texas" can enforce vaccination against anyone in the state who objects "for any reason of personal conscience, based on a religious belief, or for medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19," according to a news release from the governor's office.

It's Not Just Southwest Airlines — Air Traffic Controllers in Jacksonville Reportedly Walked Out Friday Night Protesting Mandatory COVID Vaccinations Too.  Big Media blacked out the news on Friday night that hundreds of flights out of Jacksonville were cancelled due to walkouts in response to vaccine mandates.  We've reported already on the Southwest Airlines flights canceled this weekend.  In addition, according to one source air traffic controllers staged a walkout in Jacksonville in response to the vaccine mandate being forced on them.

Greg Abbott Defies Joe Biden and Throws Southwest Airlines a Lifeline.  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has made another move against nonsensical COVID policies.  Today, he signed an executive order banning vaccine mandates by any entity in the state.  This would hit corporations that have begun to follow federal guidelines to mandate vaccines for all their employees.  And though an official rule from OSHA has yet to materialize as threatened, Abbott's move is in direct defiance of Joe Biden.

Vaccine Mandates Awaken Calls for Freedom.  A specter is haunting America — the specter of freedom.  How else to explain the weekly chants from hundreds of thousands of sports fans, packing into football stadiums and other large venues the way real American used to do in the days Before Fauci, chanting an obscene suggestion to the current resident of the White House.  Eleven months ago, gas prices were low, and the United States was energy independent.  Unemployment was also low, and minorities had never fared better in the job market.  The southern border was relatively secure, the useless war in Afghanistan was bumping along, enriching the Pentagon but not troubling anybody overmuch, and the future looked bright.  Then came the highly questionable election of 2020, one rendered nearly meaningless by last-minute, COVID-driven, illegal changes in state election laws that made a mockery of our democratic traditions and procedures in the name of a chimerical "safety" from a form of the flu.  And presto — Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., who'd been in Washington for more than half a century, was suddenly president of the United States.

Gov. Greg Abbott bans vaccine mandates by any 'entity' in Texas.  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order Monday to prohibit any entity, including private business, from enforcing a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on workers and called on state lawmakers to pass a similar ban into law.  The move comes as the Biden administration is set to issue rules requiring employers with more than 100 workers to be vaccinated or test weekly for the coronavirus.  Several major companies, including Texas-based American Airlines and Southwest Airlines, have said they would abide by the federal mandate.  "No entity in Texas can compel receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine by any individual, including an employee or a consumer, who objects to such vaccination for any reason of personal conscience, based on a religious belief, or for medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19," Abbott wrote in his order.

Texas Governor Issues Executive Order Banning Vaccine Mandates by Any Entity.  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Oct. 11 issued an executive order that bans vaccine mandates by any entity in the state, including private employers.  "The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus, but should remain voluntary and never forced," Abbott said in a statement upon issuing the order.  The executive order states, "No entity in Texas can compel receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine by any individual, including an employee or a consumer, who objects to such vaccination for any reason of personal conscience, based on a religious belief, or for medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19."  "I hereby suspend all relevant statutes to the extent necessary to enforce this prohibition," Abbott wrote in the order.

Governor Greg Abbott bans COVID vaccine mandates for private businesses.  Texas Governor Greg Abbott is clamping down all the way.  The newest executive order from his office stipulates that vaccine mandates are not allowed anywhere in Texas from both a public and private entity standpoint.  It's indicated this is being done because the Governor believes these vaccination mandates are causing more of a disruption to the state than the pandemic itself at this point.  [Tweet] [...] It's the latest in a series of executive orders.  What's different about this one is that the executive order at the end of August banned vaccine mandates for government entities.  This newest one states this was necessary in response to the sweeping vaccine mandate announced by the Biden administration for workplaces in early September.  Governor Abbott also added the item to the Third Special Session agenda for the state legislature, and says the "executive order will be rescinded upon the passage of such legislation."

The Head Of The CDC In Maine Is Asked About Vaccine Deaths Being 60% Of COVID Deaths In The State, Things Get Uncomfortable.  During courtroom legal testimony, TrialSite advisory committee member Dr. Peter McCullough reports that the adverse event death rate in the state of Maine indicates considerable cause for concern.  An inordinate amount of deaths, 661 within 28 days after vaccination, suggests a distinct possible link, although, of course, this isn't prima facie proof that the deaths are caused by the COVID-19 vaccines.  The VAERS death rate is 7 times the rate of Maine's average monthly Covid death rate.  During the entire year of 2020, Maine reported 1,070 Covid deaths.  [Video clip]

Falls Church could see school bus double runs, delays due to driver shortages.  Falls Church City Public Schools in Virginia is alerting parents that some school bus routes could be delayed because of double runs starting Tuesday.  The problem is driver shortages.  The announcement comes as many school districts in the D.C. region are experiencing similar issues. [...] Elsewhere, in Calvert County, Maryland, drivers planned to "call out sick" Monday to draw attention to what they described as "challenges with pay and benefits."  And in Anne Arundel County, drivers last week executed a two-day strike to express similar concerns.

The Editor says...
Bias alert:  The article above made no mention of vaccine mandates as a possible cause of the driver shortage.

First Southwest Cancellations, Are American and Amtrak Next?  We saw a huge problem with Southwest Airlines this weekend, with over 800 flights canceled on Saturday and a thousand more on Sunday.  As we reported, the initial claims as to the problem were utter nonsense — "bad weather" — while other carriers weren't having that significant an issue.  Southwest canceled 28% of its schedule, according to ABC.  The sheer scale of the cancellations showed there were obviously internal issues. [...] On top of that, now there are questions being raised about Amtrak after two trains were cancelled by them as well for "unforeseen crew issues."  [Tweet]  Now, because they're not explaining what's going on there, we don't know what the rationale is behind those cancelations but the "unforeseen crew issues" are causing a lot of people to conclude that it's related to vaccine mandate issues as well.

Amtrak Train Crews Allegedly Joins The Walkout Started By Air Traffic Controllers And Southwest Pilots — MSM Ignores The Walkout.  Amtrak announced it will require nearly all of its 18,000 employees be fully Vaccinated by Nov. 22.  Multiple sources are reporting that train crews have now joined the protest started by Air Traffic Controllers and Southwest pilots and employees.  [Tweets]  Rumors that American Airlines pilots are next.  [Tweets]  Southwest Airlines canceled more than 1,000 flights on Sunday as employees continue to react to the company's decision to impose vaccine mandates.  Earlier this week, employees learned they would be required to be vaccinated by December 8 or face termination.  Reports circulating on social media suggest disgruntled employees responded to the mandate with a #sickout.

A Southwest Airlines pilot explains why you will not hear anything about vaccine mandates from his union.  Essentially, the union cannot organize or even acknowledge the sickout, because doing so would make it an illegal job action.  Years ago, Southwest and its pilots had a rough negotiation, and the union would not even let the pilots internally discuss the possibility of working-to-rule (which would have slowed Southwest to a crawl).  But at the moment the pilots don't even have to talk to each other about what they're doing.  The anger internally — not just among pilots but other Southwest workers — is enormous.  The tough prior negotiations notwithstanding, Southwest has a history of decent labor relations, and workers believe the company should stand up for them against the mandate.  Telling pilots in particular to comply or face termination has backfired.

17 Year Old Hockey Player Dies Shortly After Being Vaccinated, Was Not Allowed To Play Without It.  A 17-year-old boy has died shortly after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.  Sean Hartman, a student at Banting Memorial high school, got the shot in September.  He immediately suffered multiple health problems.  He unexpectedly passed away at home on September 27th according to his GoFundMe page.  He died as a result of a heart attack according to this Twitter user.  Sean got the vaccine so that he could play hockey in an arena where the vaccine is mandated.  [Video clip]

If This Is True...  Remember folks that doctors have been threatened with loss of their medical licenses for writing prescriptions and chain pharmacies, which are most of them, have in many cases refused to fill said prescriptions.  The entire reason people have gone out and bought "pony paste" is that they can't go to the local doc-in-a-box and get a script for Ivermectin.  Incidentally I trust animal meds in this sort of context far more than human ones.  Go kill someone's tens-of-millions of dollar racehorse and see how long you live. [...] Do I believe Ivermectin is the entire answer?  No.  It wasn't for me, and I used it when I got Covid in early August.  But was it part of the answer?  I believe it was.  It certainly didn't kill me and on the data it is about 100 times safer than Tylenol.  We have 40 years of data on its safety and it has a risk of seriously harming you of about 1 in 600,000.

Fauci: No vaccine mandates on domestic flights for now, but everything 'on the table'.  Dr. Anthony Fauci says he does not expect a vaccine mandate for Americans flying domestically in the near future.  "It's always discussable.  We always wind up discussing it," Fauci said Sunday on CNN's State of the Union.  However, he continued, "I don't see that immediately."  Fauci first floated the idea of vaccine requirements for domestic flights last month during an appearance on NBC's Meet the Press, and has since said he would support the idea during various media interviews.  But he sounded a slightly different tune over the weekend.  "I don't want to say support or not.  I think it's a decision that's made by input from a number of parts of the government, including public health," he said.

New South Wales Australia Officially Celebrates Their First Day of Apartheid with The Introduction of Two Classes of Citizens.  According to almost all Australian media today [10/10/2021] the birds are singing louder, the sun is warmer, the skies have parted and angelic music resounds from the heavens and proclaims — "Freedom Day is here".  Yes, after months of government mandated, police enforced, hibernation and strict COVID isolation, millions of formerly free citizens can open their windows and doors for the first time.  However, they step out of their homes while crossing a new threshold that can never be reversed.  They enter a new era of apartheid, as only vaccinated individuals are permitted to engage in this "Freedom Day" society.  Every venue in New South Wales is under strict legal mandate and government forced compliance to ban all non-vaccinated persons from their facilities.

Ivermectin .vs. Covid In A Poor, High-Density State.  Uttar Pradesh, India — 33 districts in that state have been declared "Covid-free."  Well, ok, not that entirely the entire state is Covid free, but close enough.  241 million people, 199 active cases.  The positive test rate is currently 0.01%.  In other words, statistically zero.  Why?  It's not vaccination; statistically-speaking none of their people have been vaccinated while, according to JAMA's study approximately 62% of the population of the US showed vaccine-generated antibodies as of May.  I bet you can figure out how they did it and it will only require one word too.  If you're having trouble, well, read here because it's fully explained and that one word is not vaccines.  Tell me again why hospitals, doctors and so-called "public health experts" still have a microphone to use; as I advocated many, many months ago and, based on the evidence, expected would work Utter Pradesh has cut off forward transmission of the virus with a cheap and safe drug.  No transmission, no epidemic.  Period.  It's that simple.

Double-jabbed Brits suffering 'worst colds ever' could have Covid without realising.  Brits suffering from miserable colds could actually be enduring breakthrough cases of Covid-19 without realising, potentially allowing the virus to continue to spread.  Over the past few weeks hundreds of thousands of people have been struck down by the fierce return of the common cold. [...] It may be that those currently in the grips of the familiar symptoms are not actually suffering from a cold, but Covid-19.  Research from the ZOE Covid App in the UK shows that the top five symptoms for those who have had both coronavirus vaccines but still contract the virus are a headache, a runny nose, sneezing, a sore throat and loss of smell.

Lawmakers seek federal grand jury investigation for COVID-19 statistical manipulation.  The CDC adopted a "double-standard exclusively for COVID-19 data collection" that inflated cases and deaths starting early in the pandemic, violating multiple federal laws and distorting mitigation policies, Oregon lawmakers told the feds' top lawyer in the state.  Advised by "a large team of world-renowned doctors, epidemiologists, virologists, and attorneys," state Senators Kim Thatcher and Dennis Linthicum petitioned U.S. Attorney Scott Asphaug to approve a grand jury investigation into how the pandemic is being measured.  "Public health policy must be based upon accurate and independently verifiable data to optimize outcomes and strengthen the public's trust in the people leading them through this crisis," the Republican lawmakers, whose state has imposed some of the harshest and longest COVID restrictions, wrote in a letter with several attached exhibits.

Court halts mandatory COVID shots for college athletes.  A federal appellate court has ruled in favor of 16 college athletes who challenged Western Michigan University's coronavirus vaccine mandate.  A three-judge panel of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit unanimously sided Thursday with the students, upholding a district court ruling enjoining school officials from forcing the athletes to get vaccinated.  The students had sued, claiming that the school denied or did not review their request for religious exemptions from the vaccine requirement.

NYC's Unvaccinated Teachers Need to Waive Right to Sue For 1 Year of Health Benefits.  Aside from being put on unpaid leave, New York City teachers who've declined to get the COVID-19 vaccine won't be allowed to keep their health benefits for another year unless they give up their right to sue the city over its vaccine mandate.  This condition was the result of an arbitration invoked by the city's largest teachers union, the United Federation of Teachers (UFT).  The union touted the arbitration verdict as a victory that forced the city to acknowledge medical and religious exemptions to the vaccination.  It also allowed the teachers to take a year of unpaid leave with continued health care coverage or voluntarily resign with unused sick days paid out and a year of continued health insurance.

National Political Propagandist Anthony Fauci Expresses His Sadness as COVID Cases Drop Rapidly.  Positive COVID-19 cases have plummeted nationally.  Symptomatic cases as well severe illness, hospitalizations and death have also collapsed.  Given the scientific discussion surrounding variant strength and transmissibility, my own belief is that the number of non-vaccinated Americans has stabilized; and the hardcore unvaxxed group, with strong natural antibody immunity — or strong immune systems writ large, is now defeating virus pop-ups in significant enough population scale/strength to drop the infection rate.  However, as the infection rate declines, and the number of severe illness cases drops dramatically, Dr. Anthony Fauci is reduced to the position of a hammer looking for a nation of diminishing nails.  Fauci appears very sad today [10/10/2021] on CNN, as the little shred of his expertise that remains is increasingly useless.

Indiana Walgreens "Accidentally" Gives Pfizer COVID Jabs To 4 and 5 Yr Old Siblings.  4 and 5-yr-old siblings went to an Indiana Walgreens so the kids could get a flu shot.  What happened next is truly a nightmare.  According to the family attorney, both children were accidentally given adult doses of the Pfizer COVID vaccination.  WFIE reported that Alexandra and Joshua Price say it happened on October 4 at the Walgreens on St. Joseph Avenue.  Action 5 News reports — The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is only approved for people ages 12 and older.  However, the companies are seeking approval for use in children ages 5 to 11 with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

New Jersey Teacher Says Her Stomach Was 'Churning' Following Union Demand To Log Students' Vaccination Status.  Jennifer Mess, a New Jersey public school teacher, said Sunday on 'Fox & Friends Weekend' that her stomach was "churning" after watching a teachers union training video enticing her and her colleagues to log the vaccination status of students and parents into a progressive app.  The video, produced by the vaccine equity nonprofit Made to Save as well as the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the National Educators Association (NEA), reportedly instructs teachers to upload their conversations with students and parents into the campaign app Reach, in exchange for rewards like gift cards.  Mess, a drama teacher for the Middletown Township Public Schools, argued that the training talked them through scenes where they would be "manipulating parents and students and as educators," saying the instructions were "completely against what we do."

Gottlieb says it's 'certainly reasonable' to see kids 5-11 fully vaxxed around Thanksgiving.  The former head of the FDA said Sunday that it is "certainly reasonable" to expect to start seeing children ages 5 to 11 fully vaccinated around Thanksgiving.  In an interview with CBS's "Face the Nation," Dr. Scott Gottlieb — who now serves on vaccine-maker Pfizer's board of directors — was asked whether it is possible that kids in the age group could receive both COVID-19 shots by around the end of the month if the Food and Drug Administration approves the company's vaccine for them.  "I think that's certainly reasonable in terms of when this would be available," Gottlieb said.  Gottlieb pointed out that the FDA's advisory committee is meeting Oct. 26 to discuss whether to grant emergency-use authorization to the vaccine for younger children.

The Editor says...
To me, it's obvious that "emergency-use authorization" is not necessary, because there is no emergency.  There never was an emergency.  A new version of the flu came around, and governments all over the world — seeing a rare chance to seize power — went crazy over it.  It turned into a human rights crisis, not a medical crisis.

Custom Officials Seize Small Packages of Lifesaving Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine in Chicago While Record Amounts of Fentanyl Continue to Flow.  Customs and Border officials captured two small packages of Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine at Chicago's O'Hare Airport recently.  The two drugs would not have raised an eyebrow before the COVID pandemic.  But since the Democrats and media politicized the completely safe, inexpensive and effective medications the Customs agents are on the lookout for these cheap drugs.  The agents captured packages of 100 Ivermectin pills, 32 Ivermectin pills and 40 hydroxychloroquine pills.  Meanwhile Mexican cartels continue to smuggle record amounts of fentanyl into the country this year.

Hospital uses photo of vaccine-fired nurse to recruit for her replacement.  Besides and in addition to any question of legality of the actions, there's no doubt many Americans feel corporations are abusing their workers if they fire them for failing to comply with COVID-19 mandates.  But one health-care company, Asante, based in southern Oregon, is being trashed online for firing one such worker, and then using her own image in an advertisement seeking a replacement for her.

Watch As 16 Year Old Girl Is Arrested For Not Wearing a Mask In High School, Entire School Is Locked Down.  A 16-year-old high school student was arrested Thursday over a mask dispute, forcing the school into lockdown for over an hour.  Grace Smith, a student at Laramie High School, was suspended from school for six days via three separate two-day suspensions, she claimed in an interview with Wyoming Sen. Anthony Bouchard about her arrest.  She also allegedly received $1,000 in trespassing fines for refusing to leave school grounds.  "It makes me angry," Smith said.  "It makes me feel unwanted by the school system.  It makes me stressed out that I have to fight this battle as a 16-year-old.  Right now, I should be playing sports and having fun.  And instead, I'm fighting for the rights that were supposed to be won hundreds of years ago."  [Video clip]

16-Year-Old Wyoming Student Arrested for Not Wearing Mask, Entire School Placed on Lockdown.  A 16-year-old student in Wyoming was arrested and the entire school was placed on lockdown — all because she refused to wear a mask.  Grace Smith, 16, had already been suspended twice from Laramie High School in Wyoming for refusing to wear masks in class.  As the brave student attempted to go to class unmuzzled once again, she was met with police and given a $500 citation.  When she was told to leave the school, she refused to comply.  At that point, she was handcuffed and arrested.  As the situation unfolded, an announcement over the loudspeaker said that "we are in a lockdown, please stay in your rooms."

Wyoming teenager arrested after refusing to wear mask on school grounds, family says.  A 16-year-old girl in Wyoming was arrested Thursday [10/7/2021] at her school after she refused to wear a mask on school grounds, she and her father said.  Grace Smith, a junior at Laramie High School, told state Sen. Anthony Bouchard, R-Cheyenne, in an interview posted online, that police placed her in handcuffs for trespassing after she was suspended for not following the school's mask mandate and refused to leave school grounds.

A Few Steps More Toward Authoritarianism.  The citizen owns the right to absolute freedom of expression without fear of repercussions.  The citizen owns the right to protests without fear of repercussions especially if they witness their values or morals being trampled upon.  The citizen owns the right to decide what to consume, which includes medicine or vaccines.  The citizen owns the right to privacy in matters pertaining to health, finance, and personal activities.  The citizen owns the right to move freely in public places.  The state cannot revoke what it does not own and this categorically applies to the freedoms and rights of a citizen. [...] The state knows that cannot crush this citizen with brute force, that would just be too obvious and raise alarm.  The state is hence, perennially on the lookout for situations or crises to use or misuse such that they can gradually encroach upon the rights of citizens.  The COVID-19 pandemic was a gift from heaven for the state.  COVID-19 was used or misused to alter the manner in which a presidential election was conducted and left ample scope for fraud.  This has resulted in many citizens no longer trusting the outcomes of elections.  COVID-19 was also used to force citizens to take vaccines irrespective of their personal desires.  COVID-19 was also used to restrict movements in public places and mandate masks.  A large section of citizens has been conditioned into think that all of these draconian measures imposed by the domineering state are for their well-being so they gladly comply with folded hands.

Why Is the COVID Case Count So High?  It's a classic "one hand washes the other scenario" between outside labs and hospitals.  "If you give me more positive results, I get more money, so I'll send more tests to you."  My hospital's Medical Staff President flatly denied any CARES Act benefits at our 2020 Medical Staff Extravaganza, but the incentives can't be denied.  My hospital still sends "coders" out to demand that staff order COVID tests to get more payments.  Put bluntly, there's no way to know what any test means medically if the patient isn't sick.  But "positives" definitely mean money!  MIQE standards list eighty-five parameters that must be met in RT-PCR testing.  Does every lab meet them all every time?  Around the world, celebrities who test "positive" one day and "negative" the next strongly suggest that a lot of mistakes are being made.  This is unsurprising since as early as 2017, the technique was well known for "lack of reproducibility."  The inventor of the test stated that RT-PCR was never intended to be a diagnostic test and using it as one was scientifically illegitimate. "[It's] like trying to say whether somebody has bad breath by looking at his fingerprint."

Southwest Airlines forced to cancel 1800+ weekend flights one day after pilots' union filed for a restraining order on vaccine mandate.  It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to figure out that pilots at Southwest Airlines are protesting their company's move to require Covid vaccinations, even though the company and their own union denies it.  Over the past weekend, Southwest was forced to cancel over 1800 flights:  ["]The Dallas-based carrier canceled over 1,000 flights Sunday and 808 flights Saturday equivalent to 27 percent of its entire schedule for the day, over the Columbus Day holiday weekend.["]  Prior to the arrival of Covid, Southwest was the largest carrier of passengers in the United States.  I don't know if that is still the case because the pace of recovery of airline operations has been uneven.  But undeniably, Southwest is a major presence in domestic air travel.

Conspiracy or greed?  That's the big question.  At this point, my view of COVID has boiled down to two questions:  Is this a conspiracy of the global elites to decimate the population of the world, or is the vaccination drive and all the accompanying obfuscation of the havoc it's causing simply evil greed on the part of the vaccine manufacturers, and others with a financial stake in the jabs?  And, in the long-term, will the dire predictions come true?  I can only pray they won't.  Time will tell.  I wonder who would do the things we are doing if it isn't a conspiracy of some sort?  Now we're jabbing innocent children, who rarely die from COVID, with a biologic known to cause serious heart ailments, even death, in youth.  This cannot be forgiven yet, in my town, families are lining their teens up to take the shots.

Approving vaccines for children is not a cause for celebration.  On Thursday, October 7, 2021, Pfizer asked the FDA to approve COVID vaccinations for children ages 5-11.  If it gets that approval, vaccinations for young children could start in less than a month.  Looking at the evidence objectively, it's hard to justify doing this.  Still, there are parents who believe such vaccinations will give families their lives back.  Children will be able to take off masks, participate in sports, visit elderly friends and relatives.  All it will take to restore the world to normal is two little jabs of an experimental mRNA therapy, dubbed a vaccine, and tested for less than a year.  What could go wrong?  Two of the things that could go wrong are myocarditis and pericarditis, two conditions in which the heart becomes inflamed.  These illnesses have not been definitively linked to the mRNA vaccines.  However, they emerged in young people in the United States and Israel after the Pfizer vaccine rollout and no other cause has been suggested for the sudden appearance of these conditions.

World Renowned Psychiatrist: 'Global Predators' Fauci, Gates, and Schwab Behind the COVID 'Reign of Terror'.  A world-renowned psychiatrist says an evil cabal of powerful elites, including National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci, tech billionaire Bill Gates, and World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab, created the COVID pandemic to push the deadly vaccines on an unsuspecting public, and usher in a "new world order."  Dr. Peter Breggin argues in a new book that the U.S. government began its vaccine rollout by enticing people to get the experimental shot using various bribes, then moved on to forcing the injections on unwilling people by threatening their employment, imposing higher health insurance rates, making it more difficult for them to travel, and even denying them health care.  Breggin, 85, says we are in the midst of worldwide propaganda campaign designed to make people feel helpless, docile, and obedient.  He laid out in detail what his extensive research into the pandemic has uncovered during an interview on Dr. Joseph Mercola's podcast, last month.  According to Breggin, "we are being oppressed by evil people" who are working toward a worldwide totalitarian regime.

Letter to a Colluder:  Stop Enabling Tyranny.  I'm willing to die to defend my liberty.  Are you willing to die to take my liberty?  No?  Good.  Then stop enforcing totalitarian measures against your neighbors on behalf of the tyrants, who wouldn't hesitate to annihilate you.  Stop planning, directing, supervising, controlling, and performing their dirty work.  Become part of the resistance instead of an enabler of democidal despots.  Whether you are a law enforcement officer, public health official, psychologist, scientist, medical professional, educator, employer, censor, propagandist, or any other agent of complicity in this war against the people, you are what makes dictatorships possible.  You are what makes enslavement possible.  You are what makes genocide possible.  You are what makes the Biggest Lie in history possible.

COVID-19 Cases, Hospitalizations Plummet in Southern US, Rise in Northern States.  COVID-19 metrics in southern states like Florida have plummeted in recent weeks while rising in many northern states, including heavily vaccinated ones.  Confirmed COVID-19 cases in Mississippi, for instance, have plunged some 95 percent from the peak of 5,018 on Aug. 19 to just 268 on Oct. 7.  COVID-19 related hospitalizations in the state, one of the worst-hit in the nation, dropped from 1,667 on Aug. 19 to 403 on Thursday.  Similar drops have been recorded in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, and Texas.  At the same time, metrics have been rising in many northern states, including those in New England.

Reports: Mass Flight Cancellations After Federal Workers Protest Biden's Vaccine Mandate.  Thousands of people experienced flight cancellations and delays out of Jacksonville International Airport this weekend after a number of federal workers reportedly staged a sickout in protest of President Joe Biden's Wuhan coronavirus vaccine mandate.  [Numerous tweets]  But the Federal Aviation Administration is denying the reports of a vaccine mandate protest, while also admitting limited staffing was "unexpected." [...] Meanwhile, a number of Southwest pilots are working to block the [vaccination] mandate and have filed a lawsuit against the airline.

Southwest Airlines' Reputation Crumbles After Fallout From COVID Policies.  Yesterday [10/9/2021], mass chaos ensued for Southwest Airlines, with thousands of flights being canceled across the country.  Passengers were left scrambling as refunds were denied and nonsensical excuses were presented.  The official story was that ATC "issues" and bad weather caused the meltdown, which hit Jacksonville, FL especially hard.  That rippled through flights elsewhere as planes were not able to make their connecting legs.  One look at the radar and airport delays, though, shows there was absolutely nothing weather-related anywhere in the country (where Southwest Airlines operates) that caused this, much less in sunny Jacksonville.  Rather, it was some mix of an air traffic controller and pilot shortage due to pointless vaccine mandates driving the cancellations.  That's made obvious by the fact that other major US airlines saw cancellation rates over 10x lower during the same period.

The Editor says...
It's bad enough to be stuck in an airport somewhere, but it's far more aggravating if the delay is due to a completely avoidable problem.  And by that, I mean the vaccine mandate.  It is entirely unnecessary, an affront to personal freedom.  And the vaccine itself has been shown to be lethal in many cases.

2 Very Young Children Were 'Accidentally' Given COVID Vaccine Instead Of Flu Shot, Now Have Heart Issues.  An Evansville family and their attorney says they were accidentally given full adult doses of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine instead of flu shots.  They say it happened October 4, at the Walgreens on St. Joseph Avenue.  The family of four includes two adults and two children who are just five and four years old.  The Pfizer vaccine isn't approved for children that young.  They are seeking approval for children ages five to 11, but the dosage would be one third that of the adult dose.  Pfizer has not asked permission to vaccinate children age four or younger.  The family's attorney, Daniel Tuley, shared with us what he says are the vaccination cards given to the family by Walgreens.  They show children born in 2016 and 2017 were given a Pfizer coronavirus vaccine.  [Video clip]

Los Angeles County sheriff won't enforce vaccine mandate.  The Los Angeles County sheriff says he will not enforce the county's vaccine mandate in his agency.  Sheriff Alex Villanueva, who oversees the largest sheriff's department in the country with roughly 18,000 employees, said Thursday in a Facebook Live event that he does not plan to carry out the county's mandate, under which Los Angeles County employees had to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 1.

LA County Sheriff Won't Enforce Vaccine Mandate at His Department.  Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said that he will not be requiring his employees to adhere to the county's COVID-19 vaccine mandate due to concerns that he could lose a significant number of his workforce.  The mandate, issued by executive order in August, requires all Los Angeles County employees to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 1 but allows religious and medical exemptions.  Villanueva, who oversees the largest sheriff's department in the county with approximately 18,000 employees, said Thursday in a Facebook Live event that his workforce is willing to be terminated if it means that they do not have to get the vaccine.  "I don't want to be in a position to lose 5, 10 percent of my workforce overnight on a vaccine mandate," he said.

Report, 100 to 200 Congressional Reps and Staff Were Treated with Ivermectin Protocol From Front Line COVID Critical Care Doctors.  According to Dr Pierre Kory, MD, MPA, and verified by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), 100 to 200 congressional reps and/or staff and families who contracted COVID-19 were treated with the Front Line Ivermectin protocol. [...] This successful treatment is happening at the same time many congressional representatives are playing politics in favor of the vaccine; downplaying the effective anti-viral treatment and therapeutic approach with Ivermectin; and taking action to block regular American citizens from seeking similar treatment with Ivermectin.  Congress can seek treatment with a medication they simultaneously deny to others?  This is well beyond a "scandal", and needs to be investigated quickly.

Investigated by whom?  Who's going to investigate widespread misbehavior in the U.S. Congress?  Is the Senate going to impeach the House of Representatives?

Senior Victoria Police Official Resign During Interviews, [because of the way] Police Are Made To Treat Citizens.  Acting Senior Sergeant Krystle Mitchell is facing an investigation by Victoria Police's professional standards command after she quit the force over the state's stringent COVID-19 directions.  The policewoman sensationally resigned from the Victoria Police after appearing on an independent media show The Discernible Interviews on Friday night.  She told the show Victoria Police was no longer independent from the Andrews government and requirements for police to enforce harsh new directions had "troubled" her greatly.  [Video clip]

New Law In Italy States You Can Not Work AT ALL Without Vaccination Or Constant Testing, The People Lost Their Minds At Protests Yesterday.  A protest against Italy's 'Green Pass' turned violent in the center of Rome on Saturday evening, with police responding to clashes with tear gas and water cannon.  The demonstration was organized in protest over an imminent requirement for workers in Italy to have the Green Pass certificate which shows that people have been vaccinated, tested negative or recovered from covid-19.  [Video clip]

Vermont Boasts Highest Rates of Injection and Infection.  The layers of COVID fog are starting to clear, as reality eclipses the fantastic lies of the government and medical establishment.  Initially, Americans were told that natural immunity from COVID-19 was "unlikely" for those already infected.  Now, it turns out it is the vaccines that wane — 76% of Vermont COVID-19 fatalities from breakthrough infections are "among the first vaccinated."  It appears the shots don't last: "[a]ntibody levels generated by two shots of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine can undergo up to a 10-fold decrease seven months following the second vaccination, research suggests."  But meanwhile, "[t]he immune systems of the vast majority of people who have been infected with the CCP virus will continue to carry antibodies against the virus for at least 12 months, according to a peer-reviewed study accepted by the European Journal of Immunology on Sept. 24."

Covid passport protesters hit Europe:  Thousands take to the streets in Basel and Rome to demand scrapping of restrictions.  Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators have taken to the streets in European cities to protest against Covid-19 vaccines and other regulations.  Protesters gathered in Rome to protest against Covid-19 vaccine passports but were blasted with water cannons as they clashed with police officers during the 'No Green Pass' on Saturday [10/9/2021].  Elsewhere, demonstrators gathered in Basel, Switzerland, to protest against the Covid-19 vaccine and civil restrictions after the Government made it mandatory to have a Covid certificate for vaccination or negative test to enter some public places.

Corporate-controlled media attacks Merck's ivermectin rip-off drug for competing against the almighty "vaccines".  There is a serious problem with the Cult of the Vaccine in this country, which is directly interfering with the ability of people to access anything other than pharmaceutical injections when it comes to protecting their health.  In the case of the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19), the mainstream media is now fighting against Merck & Co., which is trying to release a rip-off of ivermectin that supposedly works as an early treatment remedy for those who develop symptoms.  While initially supportive of the drug, the corporate-controlled media machine has suddenly changed its tune and is now trying to steer the public away from anything other than the Chinese Virus injections.

871 Firefighters File Intent to Sue Over LA City's COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate.  Hundreds of firefighters in Los Angeles have filed a notice of intent to sue the city over its public employee vaccine mandate.  The notice, filed on Oct. 7, said that the 871 firefighters is seeking $2.5 million each in damages.  "The claims will be filed in Superior Court as an unlimited civil case pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure," Kevin McBride, attorney for the firefighters, wrote in the notice.  The L.A. city council in August issued an ordinance requiring all city employees to have had a second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or a dose of the single-dose COVID19 vaccine by Oct. 5, unless they have a medical or religious exemption.

Hundreds of police officers and health workers in Australia opt to resign rather than take COVID-19 vaccines.  Across the globe, governments have tried many measures to curb the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).  Some insist on vaccine mandates that continue to encroach on every citizen's right to health freedom.  On Oct. 6, local media reported that health workers from New South Wales (NSW) and police officers in Queensland have resigned because of coronavirus vaccine mandates.  An estimated 136 health workers in NSW and an unknown number of police officers in Queensland have quit their jobs due to vaccine mandates on the their workplace.

What is it about healthcare workers refusing the vaccine that the administration fails to grasp?  Thanks to Joe Biden's absurd push for vaccine mandates, workers throughout the nation are being fired — as in not allowed to come to work!  These are the people who for over a year and a half have been caring for, treating thousands of Covid patients.  They were and are heroes as are all our first responders, until they chose not to submit to the emergency authorized experimental vaccine.  Now they are enemies of the state!  What does this tell us?  For over a year and a half these selfless doctors and nurses have been on the frontlines of the pandemic and now they are being fired, deprived of work, unemployment insurance, even their pensions if they remain true to themselves and what their experience has taught them.  If there is any group of people who know about Covid, it is these healthcare workers in hospitals, ERs and ICUs.  So, what explains their vaccine hesitancy, their resistance to being vaxxed with an untested gene therapy jab that has so far had hundreds of thousands of adverse consequences, disabilities and deaths?

The Dangerous Scapegoating of the 'Unvaccinated' Reaches Ridiculous New Levels.  Every terrible president needs a scapegoat for the results of their awful policies, and Joe Biden thinks he's found his — the unvaccinated.  For months now, Biden has spoken of those who haven't gotten the COVID vaccine as not only second-class citizens but also as some kind of immoral scum worthy of rebuke and scorn.  We saw that perfectly illustrated in his speech announcing a federal vaccine mandate for private businesses (which hasn't actually materialized) in which the president threatened the unvaccinated, said his patience toward them is running out, and blamed them for all of life's ills.

Lithuanian Without Vaccine Pass Describes Life Under Medical Tyranny.  As governments around the world begin instituting Covid-19 'passports' which will dictate the level of participation one is afforded within society — regardless of naturally acquired immunity or actual risk to the public from the unvaccinated (considering that the majority of transmission occurs in the home), people have begun to push back against authoritarian tactics to control privileges and push vaccines. [...] Lithuania introduced a Covid Pass in May.  It's called the Opportunity Pass.  The Opportunity Pass allows you the opportunity to participate in society.  Without the Opportunity Pass, you don't have opportunity:  your rights are restricted.

'This is Not a Negotiation': Fed-Up Parents Serve Stunned School Board $200 Million Lawsuit Over Mask Mandate.  One could feel the tension at a Clark County School District board meeting as one fed-up dad spoke for a group of fourteen parents while serving a $200 million lawsuit over mask mandates.  [Video clip]

Seattle police department prepares to fire up to 40% of its cops if they fail to get vaccinated.  Seattle's police department is preparing to fire up to 400 officers who have not yet had their Covid shot in line with the city's strict vaccine mandate — despite already suffering staff shortages, rising crime rates and high 911 response times.  The Seattle Police Department has an October 18 deadline for all sworn personnel to turn in proof of COVID-19 vaccinations or risk losing their jobs.  As of Friday, 292 officers have yet to turn in proof of vaccination — or 27 percent of the department's 1,080 deployable police officers.

Victoria Australia, Officials Withdraw Vaccination Mandate for Government and Judicial Employees.  Citing "jurisdictional issues", the severe COVID compliance office of Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews has reversed a significant portion of the vaccine mandate.  Details are oddly sketchy to find; however, it appears Victoria State government workers and workers within the judiciary will no longer be mandated to accept the COVID-19 vaccination. [...] It would appear this reversal is due to an issue in a similar vein to 'separation of powers'.  This sets up an unusual dynamic.  The vaccine mandate still exists for everyone in the private sector; because of course it does.  However, a judge hearing a case that challenges the vaccine mandate would themselves not be subject to the same state-wide mandate argued in their court.

Judge rules against natural immunity claim challenging COVID-19 shot mandate.  A federal judge denied a request to block an employer's COVID-19 vaccine mandate on the basis of natural immunity on Friday [10/8/2021].  Jeanna Norris, who works at Michigan State University, challenged the school's vaccine requirement on the basis that she had COVID-19 and recovered.  After having two antibody tests showing her immunity, her doctor instructed her not to get the vaccine at this time.  Yet, she faces termination for not complying with Michigan State University's requirement that all staff and students get vaccinated by Aug. 31 unless they have a religious or medical exemption.

Biden Using Dishonorable Discharges for Military to Weaponize Covid Vaccine.  If there is still one person somewhere in America who doesn't think President Joe Biden and the toxic progressives who increasingly call the shots for the White House and the Democratic Party are heading swiftly down an authoritarian road, here's yet another illustration: [...] For those who might have expected Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin to step up in defense of the 1.3 million active-duty military service members and 800,000 reservists, be aware that he was asked his position on the issue during a recent Senate Armed Services Committee hearing.  Austin's response wasn't exactly a profile in courage, as he responded by saying that "taking a vaccine is a requirement.  I'll just leave it at that[.]"  Note that neither Austin nor the White House statement made clear or even remotely acknowledged what is at stake for every declining service member on this issue.

Washington State Now Suffers From A State Trooper Shortage Because Of Vaccine Mandates.  The Washington State Patrol's top brass is bracing for the loss of several troopers as the deadline for Gov. Jay Inslee's mandate for public workers to be vaccinated for COVID-19 nears.  According to the agency, 91 troopers — 8.5 percent of of department's total force — have either not been vaccinated or submitted their paperwork that indicates their vaccination status.  [Video clip]

871 Los Angeles Firefighters File Notice of Intent to Sue City Over Vaccine Mandate.  871 Los Angeles city firefighters have filed a notice of intent to sue over the public employee vaccine mandate passed by City Council.  The vaccine mandate requires the firefighters to be vaccinated by October 20th.  The L.A. ordinance requiring vaccines leaves the door open for requiring booster shots, stating that they may be required for employees in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other health authorities.  The lawsuit filed by the group of firefighters seeks $2 million per plaintiff.  The group represents one out of every four workers.

Finland Limits Moderna Vaccine After Reports Of Side Effects In Younger Males.  On Thursday [10/7/2021], Finland joined Sweden, Norway and Denmark in pausing the use of Moderna vaccines due to reports of rare cardiovascular side effects found in younger males.  The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare announced males under 30 would be offered the Pfizer vaccine instead, after studies found younger males were at a slightly higher risk of developing heart issues with Moderna.  "An increased risk of side effects such as inflammation of the heart muscle or the pericardium [the double-walled sac containing the heart and the roots of the main vessels].  The risk of being affected is very small," said Sweden's Public Health Agency.

Age-Adjusted Mortality Is at 2004 Levels.  Yet They Tell Us Covid Is Worse Than the 1918 Flu..  Last week, the media again tried to ratchet up the public's fear over covid-19 by labeling it more deadly than the 1918 flu epidemic.  "COVID-19 Is Now the Deadliest Disease in U.S. History," reads one headline from an NBC TV affiliate.  Considering the realities of cancer and heart disease, that headline is absurdly false.  Perhaps the author meant "communicable disease."  A TIME headline was at least arguably factual, declaring, "COVID-19 Is Now the Deadliest Pandemic in American History."  But even the TIME headline is only arguably true if stripped of all context.  If we actually look at disease mortality proportionally to the population, the 1918 epidemic was far worse than covid.  Considering that the US population in 1918 was one-third its current size, we find that deaths per million from the flu epidemic totaled about sixty-five hundred per million.  Covid, by comparison currently comes in — in the official numbers — around twenty-two hundred per million.  But this is all part of a larger pattern — one well embraced by the media — of presenting information with as little context as possible.

Merriam-Webster claims that you're "anti-vaxx" if you are merely opposed to vaccine mandates.  If you've declined to receive the COVID-19 vaccine for any reason — personal, medical, political, whatever — you've likely been slurred as an "anti-vaxxer."  That is just the world we live in now.  Yet the list keeps growing.  To the ranks of so-called "anti-vaxxers" we can apparently add those who get vaccinated and are supportive of vaccination but who are simply opposed to forcing other people to get the vaccine: [...] It's worth pointing out that this Merriam-Webster definition of "anti-vaxx" goes back to at least 2018.  Yet that is, in a way, meaningful commentary unto itself:  Can you imagine, even a few short years ago, an aggressive nationwide movement to slander and revile people who are simply against mandatory pharmaceutical injections?

Hot mic catches Israel Health Minister admitting that vaccine mandates are about coercion and social control, not science or medicine.  A hot mic from Israel's Channel 12 News caught the country's health minister admitting that vaccine mandates are about coercion and social control, not science or medicine.  Israel's Health Minister, Nitzan Horowitz, was having a candid conversation with Interior Minister, Ayelet Shaked, about the country's draconian Green Pass vaccine passport system.  Neither Minister knew that their conversation was being recorded and broadcasted.  This digital surveillance system bars individuals from public life if they do not show digital proof of being triple jabbed.  Using this system of coercion and social control, Israel has enslaved most of its population and segregated the rest.  Israelis are "required" to update their Green Pass every six months, in compliance with new body requirements set forth by the new medical Apartheid.

American government officials caught editing Wuhan lab journal.  Government officials in the United States have been caught editing Virologica Sinica, a scientific journal affiliated with the infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) that has been pumping out propaganda against the true origins of the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).  According to reports, officials who work at Tony Fauci's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) embedded themselves within the journal's editorial board, allowing them to steer the "science" that was published there to divert and deflect away from the truth.  Numerous studies have been published in Virologica Sinica that admit gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses was taking place at the WIV. This directly contradicts the false claims made by Fauci that neither he nor his agency have ever been involved in the high-risk research. [...] Fauci lied under oath and committed perjury when he denied any knowledge or involvement with gain-of-function research, even as his own scientists were editing the very studies that revealed it was taking place.  This is more than a smoking gun, proving that Fauci is a liar, a criminal and a traitor who has committed treason against the United States and the American people, using our tax dollars to commit his crimes against humanity.

California teenager died of heart condition two days after COVID vaccine, death report says.  A 15-year-old boy in Sonoma County, California, died two days after getting his second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, with "no other significant conditions contributing" to his death, a county death report has confirmed.  The unnamed teenager died of stress cardiomyopathy with coronary artery inflammation in June, according to an investigation report last month from the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office.  The deceased boy "was found unresponsive in his bedroom after his mother was checking on his welfare long after he was supposed to wake in the morning" and "was pronounced dead at the scene due to obvious death," the report stated.

Australian bishop calls on Catholics to fully comply with gov't COVID rules.  In a recent "Pastoral Letter supporting COVID-19 Vaccinations," Bishop Timothy Harris encouraged all Catholics living in his Diocese of Townsville to obey the Queensland government's public health orders, which include vaccine mandates and the closure of churches.  In a shocking admission, Bishop Harris revealed his willingness to submit to the Queensland government's public health orders.  "The church also accepts legitimate government action to protect the community," he said.  "This Diocese will cooperate with all government regulation and advice, seeking to provide a good example to our community," adding, "We have already had to close down church services at times, and insist on QR-code check-ins and masks when needed.  If the state were to restrict church services to vaccinated persons for a short time, we would also follow that direction."

Can zinc levels predict COVID-19 severity?  Zinc is a trace element that is naturally present in certain foods and also available in dietary supplements.  The human body requires zinc to maintain a range of biological functions.  For instance, hundreds of enzymes require zinc to function properly.  It also plays a role in protein synthesis, DNA synthesis and cell division, wound healing, and immune function.  Zinc possesses an anti-inflammatory effect and has direct antiviral activity.  As a result, zinc deficiency may reduce both innate and adaptive immune responses.  In people with a viral infection, such as SARS-CoV-2, the innate immune system is the body's first-line response to prevent the virus from penetrating and replicating before the adaptive immune system develops targeted protection.

Delta Covid variant does not cause more severe disease in children than earlier strains, study finds.  The Delta variant does not appear to cause more severe disease in children than earlier forms of the virus.  Earlier this year, the research team found the Alpha variant of the virus did not appear to make children sicker than the original form of the virus, first seen in China.  New data suggests that youngsters also do not get any sicker from Delta than they did from Alpha.  Researchers compared two groups of school-age children with Covid in England.  They looked at 694 children infected with the Alpha variant between late December 2020 and early May 2021, and 706 infected with Delta between late May and early July.

Half of LA Firefighter heroes will soon be kicked to the curb.  If you will remember, Firefighters and paramedics were among the heroes designated as essential workers during the pandemic.  Unfortunately, they are now vaccine villains facing termination in a number of cities.  Probably the most dramatic is Los Angeles where half of the city employees are unvaccinated.  In August the Los Angeles City Council voted 13-0 to approve a law requiring all city employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  Since then, a group of more than 600 L.A. City firefighters have banded together to sue the city of Los Angeles to prevent the mandate from being enforced.  The department has 1,000 to 2,000 calls a day.  Who will answer them?

How does COVID compare other things killing Americans?  We have vastly different responses to our current "master" disease (pun intended), the COVID virus versus our more "mundane" diseases.  Of course, COVID is contagious, like the flu or chickenpox, and the others are not.  Yet COVID is far from being the worst killer.  Cancer and cardiovascular diseases vie for that honor.  The American Cancer Society "projects" that 1,898,160 people will get cancer in 2021, and 608,570 will die from it.  Cardiovascular disease deaths in this country number over a million per year, between heart attack and stroke.  We have far less panicked reactions to cancer and cardio, compared to COVID. We're told COVID death totals to date are a bit over 700,000.  That's in the last 20 months, so about 400,000 in a year.  To believe that number, you must accept all the people who died "with" COVID — those who tested positive within 28 days of their deaths, whatever the actual cause of death.  When Alameda County, California, looked at its death stats a few months ago, it reduced the COVID totals by 25%.  Then there are all the people who might have been saved had they gotten early treatment.  S

Elizabeth Warren attacks Amazon for refusing to ban COVID vaccine 'misinformation' books.  Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., attacked e-commerce giant Amazon after the company refused to remove vaccine "misinformation" books from its website.  Warren posted a tweet on Friday after she received a response from Amazon to a letter last month about the sale of the books in question.  The senator posted Amazon's response in the tweet, where she attacked the company and accused it of not being willing to take down the books.

Teamsters employees say union creates hostile work environment against unvaccinated staffers.  The International Brotherhood of Teamsters demands its members' rights not be violated regarding the COVID-19 vaccine mandates, but the union took public measures to pressure its unvaccinated employees into taking the jab or leaving their jobs.  Various labor unions around the country are seeking vaccine mandate exemptions for their own members, but where they stand on their own employees may be different.  In the case of the Teamsters, the IBT holds different standards for its unvaccinated employees who work at its Washington, D.C., headquarters than the members it represents.

Joe Biden Told a Big Whopper About the Vaccine This Week - so Where Are the 'Fact Checkers'?  In my personal opinion, people should not let what politicians say unduly influence their medical decisions, but it's a reality that many do.  There are no doubt people who listened to Biden's remarks yesterday or read about them later in the news and thought that if they go to the doctor or hospital that a healthcare worker couldn't transmit COVID to them.  So where are the fact-checkers out there on this who in the past have gotten online commentators censored or banned and the traffic of websites throttled for posting alleged misinformation about COVID and the vaccines?

A COVID Correction for the Ages Points to a Bigger Agenda.  The original article is ostensibly a news write-up on the promotion of vaccines for children under 12 around the world.  As you can see, the piece was full of false information, from far overstating COVID hospitalizations for children in the United States to misstating vaccination policies in Sweden.  Obviously, the sheer amount of "mistakes" here is comical for a major newspaper.  Do they not have editors over there?  Or do the editors just not care as long as a certain perception goes forth?  At what point do you just de-publish the piece and take the loss?  I think a bigger agenda is revealed here, though.  Major news outlets are so desperate to promote a singular, positive point of view when it comes to vaccinations that they are throwing standards out the window.  Massively inflating hospitalization numbers for kids is a way to push the narrative that the risks from COVID outweigh the risks from the vaccines for that age group.  But we don't actually have proof of that in regards to children, and certainly, more study is needed before we start injecting eight-year-olds who are not statistically at risk from COVID anyway.

Covid is an all-purpose political tool.
Psaki blames COVID and unvaccinated Americans for Biden's terrible polls.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki pinned at least part of the blame for President Joe Biden's plummeting approval ratings on the pandemic and the 20 percent of unvaccinated Americans.  Psaki's finger-pointing came as Biden's approval rating nosedived to 38 percent, with 53 percent saying they disapprove of how Biden has handled the presidency, according to a poll from Quinnipiac University on Friday [10/8/2021].  'So what do you make of these really terrible polls?  Are they that he's doing something wrong.  Is it just the communication?  Or is it that he's doing unpopular things that just have to be done?' a reporter asked at the press briefing.

Vaccine Mandates From Private Employers Are Destroying American Livelihoods.  A growing number of Americans are facing the imminent loss of their livelihoods, economic uncertainty, and in some cases financial ruin, not because of mass layoffs prompted by economic recession or the collapse of their industries, but simply because they refuse to get a COVID-19 shot.  These workers occupy every corner of the American economy, from health care to entertainment, law enforcement to IT, food service to academia.  What unites them is the firm belief that they should not be forced to get a COVID-19 vaccine, whether by the government or their employer, under the threat of losing their job.  As vaccine mandate deadlines loom, this threat is becoming a reality.

No cases of influenza A or RSV detected in Ohio during 2020-21 season - and just two cases of B flu strain.  Cases of influenza and other respiratory viruses plummeted during the COVID-19 pandemic, a new study suggests.  Researchers from Akron Children's Hospital, in Ohio, looked at data from children treated during the 2018-19, 2019-20 and the 2020-21 flu seasons.  They found that flu infections among kids were reduced by 99 percent and there were no cases of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) detected in northern Ohio.

American fascism?  In the U.S. today, six media behemoths control a whopping 90% of what Americans read, watch, and listen to.  They are GE, News-Corp, Disney, Viacom, Timer-Warner, and CBS. Other corporate players include the tech companies, the big banks, and international corporations which are too numerous to mention.  The current Wuhan pandemic provides an excellent illustration of how American corporatism works.  Pfizer and Moderna produce the COVID vaccines while Washington and many state governments act as cheerleaders for them through their no-excuse vaccination mandates.  The corporate media spews out praises of the vaccines, all the while lying about their effectiveness and ignoring the adverse reactions to them.  At the same time, the high-tech companies, which dominate social media, squelch any criticism of the vaccines even when such criticism is presented by highly creditable doctors and scientists and is substantiated by actual results on the ground.  Government bureaucracies like the CDC and the FDA did their part also by issuing emergency use authorizations (EUA) for these experimental vaccines when effective treatments like ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine were available from day one.  And FDA still forbids the use of these low-cost generic drugs to treat COVID. And all the while vaccine sales ramp up.  This corporatism goes beyond the COVID vaccines.  It's everywhere.

The Cult of the Vaccine.  Just a week ago, on October 1st, the pharmaceutical giant Merck issued a terse announcement that quickly became big news.  Molnupiravir, an experimental antiviral drug, "reduced the risk of hospitalization or death" of Covid-19 patients by as much as 50%, according to a study.  The stories that rushed out in the ensuing minutes and hours were almost uniformly positive. [...] If you're thinking it was only a matter of time before the mere fact of molnupiravir's existence would be pitched in headlines as actual bad news, you're not wrong: [...] The CNN writer who thinks it's necessary to put a disclaimer in the lede of a story about molnupiravir, of all things, is basically claiming he or she is afraid a theoretical unvaccinated person might otherwise read the story and be encouraged to not take the vaccine.  Except, if that theoretical unvaccinated person could be convinced by anything CNN said or did, they'd have already gotten the shot, because the network runs ten million stories a day directly imploring people to get vaccinated or die.

As Cases Plummet In Florida, New Data Show Forcibly Masking Kids Made No Difference.  New data coming out of Florida school districts show virtually zero difference between masked vs. unmasked counties, even as Covid-19 cases plummet across the state.  Leftists hellbent on forcibly masking every child in schools across the country never had any solid data to back up their position, only emotional pleas and scare tactics.  In truth, however, this virus has never posed any statistical risk to children, nor were they a significant transmitter to adults.  And besides, if teachers were vaccinated, what were they worried about?  While many districts refused to implement mask mandates in their schools, others stubbornly insisted upon them, even defying an order from Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to allow parental exemptions.

Big Brother is bluffing.
Biden Keeps Pushing Nonexistent Worker Vaccine Mandate, A Ploy That Keeps State Attorneys General From Filing Lawsuits.  Joe Biden did it again today [10/7/2021].  A month after the first announcement, the White House occupant claimed again a [Department] of Labor rule (via OSHA) is forthcoming, yet no such process appears to be taking place.  This ploy now seems very purposeful, because without an actual policy or regulation visibly in place, state attorneys general cannot file a lawsuit or request an injunction.  As long as Biden keeps threatening a DOL worker vaccination rule sometime in the future, many employers will take action to require worker vaccination.  This seems to be the actual strategy; bolstered by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki caught off-guard last week when asked about it.  Psaki had no idea how to answer the question about any OSHA activity not taking place.  Obviously Psaki didn't expect the question, but it was also obvious that no background conversation had ever taken place amid the White House communication team.

L.A City Firefighters:  From Heroes to Zeroes.  Shortly after the 'War Against COVID' began, the government designated two new categories of American citizens — the largely arbitrary classification of 'essential' and 'nonessential' workers.  Firefighters and paramedics were deemed essential, for good reasons.  But now, like their colleagues on the frontline in the medical profession, these brave men and women — once heralded as heroes — are now scorned as villains.  In the state of California, they have gone from heroes to zeroes in the eyes of despotic Democrats, who have given them an ultimatum:  get vaccinated or get fired.

Follow the Science — Except When it comes to Natural Immunity.  Without natural immunity, many past viral illnesses, hundreds or thousands of years ago, would have been extinction events, except for the fact that those who were infected and survived now had immunity to that particular virus and perhaps similar future viruses.  Such immunity might be passed along to children as well via the placenta or through nursing.  Yet today, any discussion of natural immunity is dismissed as some QAnon conspiracy theory, earning one derision or censorship from the same people or organizations who urge us to "follow the science," but only their science.  Why are we only to follow state-approved science and ignore any science that doesn't fit the government narrative?  In Orwellian fashion, the only approved form of immunity is now vaccine induced, with no regard for natural immunity.  History and science have been rewritten to further a political narrative, rather than following the science and treating COVID like previous viral pandemics, with resulting social and economic hardship around the world.

Anyone Notice Where COVID Rates Are Climbing These Days? (Hint:  Not In Texas or Florida).  So much for President Joe Biden's attacks on Republican states such as Texas and Florida for threatening their citizens by not kowtowing to his dictates on mask and vaccine mandates.  As we noted weeks ago, and the mainstream press has only now begun to acknowledge, new cases of COVID peaked at the beginning of September, and have been on a downtrend ever since.  Cases are falling in Texas, in Florida, and other states that dared put their residents' freedoms above Biden's dictates.  But while the national trend is downward, COVID cases are rising in a handful of states.  And what the mainstream press definitely won't tell you is what these states have in common:  Almost every one of them is run by Democrats and has high vaccination rates.

Colorado Hospital Is Willing To Kill Its Transplant Patients Who Are Not Vaccinated.  UCHealth in Denver confirmed Tuesday [10/5/2021] that organ transplant recipients and living donors must be vaccinated against Covid "in almost all situations."  UCHealth said the policy change was driven by the significantly higher mortality rate, as well as the concern that living donors could still pass on a COVID infection after testing negative.  "This is why it is essential that both the recipient and the living donor be vaccinated and take other precautions prior to undergoing transplant surgery," the statement said.  "Surgeries may be postponed until patients take all required precautions in order to give them the best chance at positive outcomes."  [Video clip]

Hysteria:
Woman And Her Children Catch COVID In Australia, Neighbors Burn Her Car Down, Want To Burn House Down As Well.  A woman's car has been torched after her infection resulted in restrictions being re-imposed in parts of South Australia.  The car was found on fire in the backyard of the woman's Mount Gambier home.  The cause of the suspected attack is unknown — but neighbors say "rumors" have been floating around that she was not truthful in her account of her movements.  Mount Gambier was plunged into a week of heavy restrictions after the woman tested positive to Covid.  She is currently in hotel quarantine in Adelaide with her children.  [Video clip]

Progressive Utopia, San Francisco Is Now A Ghost Town Thanks To Their Strict COVID Policies.  The pandemic may appear to be waning, but merchants in San Francisco's downtown have a long road to recovery ahead.  San Francisco's downtown has been slower to bounce back than other U.S. cities, leaving the bars, restaurants and shops serving a commuter crowd in limbo — and often in debt — as they plan for an uncertain future.  "This area, in my opinion, has been hit the hardest in San Francisco and there has been no kind of funding or help," said Muna Azzghayer, who runs Oasis Grill, a Mediterranean eatery close to Embarcadero, and nearby Ziggy's Burgers.  "The city completely ignored this entire area."  [Video clip]

13 Year Old Dies After Second Dose Of Pfizer Vaccine, Autopsy Shows Enlarged Heart.  A 13-year-old boy allegedly died from heart problems after getting his second dose of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine, according to a viral Twitter post, as health officials begin to link cases of heart inflammation in kids to the jabs.  A Twitter thread went viral on Sunday [10/3/2021] after a woman claimed that her brother's 13-year-old son had died less than three days after receiving his second dose of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine.  [Video clip]

Veteran TV reporter fired for refusing COVID vaccine.  A veteran TV reporter at a Missouri news station was fired last week for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine.  Linda Simmons, who worked for 14 years at KY3 based in Springfield, wrote on Facebook that she requested a religious exemption to the vaccine mandate instituted by her station's parent company — but it was denied.  "I value the freedom we all have to make our own informed decisions," Simmons wrote in the Friday social media post.  "I've made a big decision and decided not to allow the company that owns KY3, Gray Television, to control my personal health choices.  I did not comply with their vaccine mandate after my exemption request was denied," her post continued.

Are the Vaccines Failing?  Pressure to get vaccinated against covid is immense.  Liberals demand that non-vaccinated people be denied medical care.  In New York, you aren't supposed to be able to enter a bar or restaurant without a certificate of vaccination.  Questioning of the efficacy or desirability of vaccination is banned on social media.  And Joe Biden says the fight against covid will be won when 97% or 98% of our population has been vaccinated, an impossible figure.  Despite all of the hoopla, it is pretty obvious that the vaccines are not working as well as had been hoped.  Originally, it was understood that being vaccinated would prevent you from getting covid.  When covid cases and deaths continued to rise after vaccines became available, we were told that it was an "epidemic of the unvaccinated."  But the goalposts have moved; now the claim is that you may still catch the disease, but you probably won't get as severe a case.

Biden appears to defend the unvaccinated losing their jobs and says Americans who haven't got the shot are damaging the economy.  Joe Biden said Thursday the 'bigger story' isn't that thousands of people are losing their jobs, but that the new mandates are increasing the percentage of Americans in the workforce who are vaccinated against COVID-19.  'These requirements work,' Biden lauded during a speech at a Clayco construction site in Elk Grove Village, Illinois.  The new Executive Order mandates that all businesses with at least 100 employees require those workers to provide proof of vaccination or be subject to compulsory weekly testing.

Biden falsely claims vaccinated people can't spread Covid in Illinois speech promoting vax mandates.  President Biden spread what the social media giants like to call "harmful misinformation" when censoring conservatives.  In the case of Biden's speech yesterday on Elk Grove Village, a Chicago suburb, the misinformation was downright dangerous, encouraging people to engage in hazardous conduct that could result in catching Covid.  As many on the left believe that Covid is a virtual death sentence despite a 99.5% recovery rate, the lack of a hysterical response from social media labeling this "harmful misinformation" is a notable example of partisan application of the rules they claim they follow.  Biden was in Illinois campaigning for private employers to fire people who don't get vaccinated.  In the course of doing so, he claimed that vaccinated people can't spread the virus, a total lie.

What if they gave a pandemic and nobody came?  Just imagine if no one knew that there has been a 'novel' COVID-19 virus 'pandemic' sweeping our nation and the world for the past 20 months or so.  What if people weren't subjected to nonstop body count and 'case' tallies?  What if they didn't know about the hyper-wrong, grossly inflated death projections in early 2020 from that mathematical virus model and its always-wrong author in England?  What if we hadn't had a similarly accuracy-challenged little Fauci-gnome-man spreading fear and hysteria?  What if the CDC hadn't illegally changed the death coding requirements in early 2020 to count anyone dying with COVID-19 as dying from COVID-19?  What if more people knew that the CDC has stated that the number of deaths due to COVID-19 alone is around 6% of the total deaths claimed?  What if people knew that the survival rate of those infected with COVID-19 is about 99.7%?  What if hysterical, tyrannical, Constitution-abstaining politicians hadn't illegally issued lockdown, masking, and other useless counterproductive decrees? [...] The virus itself has affected relatively few.  That is truly something to think about and to imagine that it did not have to be this way.  What has been done to so many people by so few people has been orders of magnitude worse than anything that COVID-19 virus has done.

A Handful Of NBA Players Have Become The Voice Of Reason In The COVID Vaccine Debate.  In recent years, the NBA has most often landed in the political news cycle thanks to LeBron James' disgusting habit of bowing and scraping before the Chinese Communist Party, or Steve Kerr's refusal to breathe a word about the suppression of protests in Hong Kong or the oppression of Uighur Muslims while lecturing everyone on the evils of systemic racism and gun ownership in America.  If you had said a year ago that 24-year-old Jonathan Isaac of the Orlando Magic, or the Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green, or Brooklyn Nets star guard Kyrie Irving would somehow be voices of calm, reason, and tolerance amid a moral panic about COVID-19 vaccines pushed relentlessly by corporate media and the Democratic Party, no one would have believed you.  Yet here we are.

The Making of an Endemic Disease.  When does a pandemic end?  How does a pandemic end?  These were the questions I was asking myself after Megyn Kelly hosted Dr. Monica Gandhi on her podcast last week.  As it turns out, sooner or later we'll have to admit that our COVID-19 pandemic is morphing into the endemic stage of the disease.  A disease can be classified as endemic when it is "persisting in a population or region, generally having settled to a relatively constant rate of occurrence," or, as Dr. Gandhi put it, you've reached endemic levels of a disease when "it's gone down to a level where you live with it."  The end goal of manageable endemic levels of disease was originally openly embraced.  Our two weeks to stop the spread game plan was focused on preventing the hospital system from being overwhelmed while also acknowledging that the disease would indeed circulate.  We initially set out clearly defined goalposts and pragmatically plotted a course forward.

Australian Medical Manufacturer Recalls Nearly 200,000 COVID-19 Tests in US Over 'False Positive' Results.  Nearly 200,000 at-home COVID-19 tests in the United States have been recalled by Australian medical tech manufacturer Ellume after the company identified that they were producing incorrect positive results.  Ellume was given an emergency authorization in December 2020 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to supply the COVID-19 Home Test for nonprescription use by symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals aged 2 years and older.  The home tests deliver results within 15 minutes.  The Biden administration signed a $231.8 million deal with the company, which initially got the green light from the Trump administration in 2020, to produce more than 633,000 tests kits per day (19 million per month), of which 8.5 million units were reserved for Americans.

California's Children Are Property Of The State.  For starters, Governor Gavin Newsom announced a vaccine mandate last week for students age 12 and older, making California the first state in the nation to require public and private school students to be fully vaccinated for in-person instruction. (Unvaccinated students will have the option of enrolling in an online school or attending independent-study programs offered by districts.)  The ruling will go into effect once the Food and Drug Administration approves vaccines for kids over the age of 12.  Depending on when the FDA decision comes down, students will have to get the jab by either January 1, 2022 or July 1, 2022.  On deck are school children ages 5 to 11, who will be forced to join the vax club as soon as the FDA green lights it for them.  Vaccine proponents are quick to explain that the COVID vaccine is just an addition to a list that includes mumps, measles, and rubella — but there is a big difference.  While children are directly impacted by mumps, etc., they do not have a significant risk from COVID, nor are they "super spreaders."  Teachers are far more likely to catch the disease in the teachers' lounge than in the classroom.

What does 'follow the science' really mean?  [Scroll down]  No scientific experiment was performed to test the difference in the spread of covid indoors vs outdoors.  No experiment was performed to test the efficacy of spread prevention among the hundreds of different mask materials.  No experiment was performed to prove what distancing rule works and where it works.  No experiment was conducted to compare the COVID spread of carriers of COVID vs. COVID-infected individuals.  No experiment was conducted comparing the efficacy of one vaccine type vs another type of vaccine.  No experiment has been conducted to show the long range bad side effects of a COVID vaccine.  No experiment has been conducted to show how long COVID vaccines last.  No experiment is possible to show the actual death rate from COVID since many deaths were recorded as COVID but had other illness causes.  In effect, none of the COVID anti-measures have been scientifically investigated and proven and no statistical samples have been analyzed so there is no real science to follow at the present time.  Follow the science?  There is no [COVID] science to follow unless it is the result of a scientific experiment with proven results gotten by using the scientific method!

Merck Charging US 40 Times What It Costs To Make Govt-Financed COVID Pill.  Merck's new 'not Ivermectin' Covid-19 treatment, molnupiravir, costs $17.74 to produce — yet the company is charging the US government $712 for the treatment — a 40x markup, according to The Intercept, citing a report issued last week by the Harvard School of Public Health and King's College Hospital in London.  The pill, originally developed using US government funds as a possible treatment for Venezuelan equine encephalitis, cut the risk of hospitalization and death in half in a randomized trial of 775 adults with mild/moderate Covid who were considered at high risk for disease due to comorbidities such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease.  The trial was stopped early so the company could apply for and emergency use authorization (EUA).  The drug did not benefit patients who were already hospitalized with severe disease.

3 with Moderna ties make their debut on Forbes' list of wealthiest people in America.  Three people at the head of Moderna, the pharmaceutical and biotech company behind one of three approved COVID-19 vaccines in the U.S., have made their debut on Forbes' List of the 400 wealthiest people in America.  Thanks in part to the shot's success, Moderna's co-founder and current chairman Noubar Afeyan, co-founder and board member Robert Langer and investor Timothy Springer all nabbed coveted spots in the ranking of the nation's most rich.  Ageyan landed in the 212th spot with a fortune of $5 billion, and Langer is at 222 with $4.9 billion.  Springer, a Harvard Medical School professor who funneled money into the company early on, also made his way onto the list with an estimated net worth of $5.9 billion, putting him in the 176th spot.

University of Colorado Hospital System Will No Longer Provide Organ Transplants to Unvaccinated Patients.  One of Colorado's largest hospital systems has implemented a new policy that denies organ transplants to patients who have not taken the experimental Covid-19 vaccine under "almost all situations."  All organ donors will also have to be vaccinated under the new policy, and it has already stopped one woman from receiving the life-saving treatment she needs.

People Notice When the Elites Lie.  You know who questions the efficacy of COVID vaccines?  Scientists.  Anyone who's been following the news for the last year or so knows that while most scientists studying the vaccines believe that their efficacy is well above zero, there have been all sorts of disagreements about how well they actually work.  Do they prevent serious symptoms 90% of the time or only 70% of the time?  Do they work at all against the delta variant?  Do their effects fade with time?  Is a third dose necessary?  Will people who already have natural antibodies get any benefit from the vaccines?  The scientific community has debated all these questions, and attentive news-watchers know that there isn't a settled consensus.  This should surprise nobody, as the vaccines are new and approved for experimental use only.  At this point, it's good that scientists aren't all thinking the same thoughts, because that means that at least some of them are doing their jobs.  However, the people who run this country (and let's be honest:  at this point, the government agencies and the big corporations are all run by the same left-leaning plutocrat class) have decided that the Deplorables aren't allowed to know any of this.

Sweden and Denmark pause use of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine in younger age groups.  Officials in Sweden and Denmark have paused use of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine in younger age groups due to concerns about the shots causing rare heart inflammation.  The two Nordic nations — separated by only a dozen miles of the Kattegat sea area — announced the decision on Wednesday [10/6/2021].  In Sweden, the Moderna jab will no longer be available to any one born after 1990, or those aged 30 and younger.

'Squad' Member Rashida Tlaib Admits Masks Are Political Theater, 'Just Wearing It' For Cameras.  Far-left Representative and member of AOC's so-called 'squad', Rashida Tlaib was caught on camera admitting that she only wears a mask for political reasons.  It marks just the latest time Tlaib has been caught violating her own COVID orders, a trend among many Democrats.  Holding an event in Detroit with Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia Fudge, Tlaib made the mask remark when speaking to a supporter who was initially unmasked himself before quickly throwing one on when he thought that Tlaib was upset with him for not wearing one.

Rashida Tlaib slammed after saying she's only wearing mask since she's on camera.  Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., was sharply criticized Wednesday after being caught on video claiming she was only wearing a mask at an event because a Republican tracker was present.  The video, posted on Twitter by the Washington Free Beacon, showed the masked "Squad" member mingling with a group of mostly masked people outdoors.  Tlaib briefly walked out of site behind someone before one of the unmasked individuals can be heard apologizing for not wearing his mask as he puts it on his face.  "I'm just wearing it because I've got a Republican tracker," Tlaib says, laughing and pulling her mask away from her face while speaking and pointing in the direction of the camera.

Did Political and Media Bias Stall the Release of Merck's New Covid-19 Drug?  It seemed like a rare instance of good news in big doses last week when pharmaceutical giant Merck announced that a new drug called molnupiravir had been shown in tests to cut hospitalizations and deaths by half. [...] The uniformly celebratory nature of coverage of the Merck product evoked memories of an infamous press episode in the early 2010s, when an alleged wonder drug called Tamiflu was pitched — by the CDC, among others — as being so effective in preventing hospitalizations for influenza that federal and state authorities ultimately spent over a billion dollars stockpiling what turned out to be a dubious treatment at best. [...] Now, too, the federal government has already agreed to pay $1.2 billion for a supply of molnupiravir, another ostensibly simple oral cure for a devastating virus.  Although a five-day course reportedly only costs $17.74 to make, the Biden administration will be spending $712 a pop for enough pills to treat 1.7 million Covid-19 patients.  Though the Tamiflu episode reminds us that not every drug hailed by a drugmaker as a "huge advance" turns out to be one, it's obviously very possible that molnupiravir turns out to be the game-changer its developers claim it is.  If that's the case, a lot of officials and journalists will have a lot of questions to answer, since this drug's release may have been delayed by six months or more, after it became collateral damage last year to yet another idiotic Trump/anti-Trump culture war drama.

China stockpiled PCR tests many months before first covid case emerged.  It has come out that China's Hubei Province ordered large quantities of PCR tests in early 2019, many months before the first "case" of the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) even emerged.  A report by the Australia-based company Internet 2.0 explains that roughly 67.4 million yuan (roughly $10.5 million) was spent on PCR tests in Hubei in 2019 — this is nearly double the amount that was ordered in 2018, nearly two years before the Chinese Virus appeared.  Four former officials from U.S. intelligence agencies in the United States, the United Kingdom and several other countries looked at data collected from a website that aggregates information on Chinese public procurement bids.  What they found is that the official story does not hold any weight.

A Detailed Examination of Events Leading Up to the Coronavirus Pandemic.  There has been an incredible amount of debate and disinformation surrounding the origins of COVID-19.  It was our exploration of this topic that first led us to create an ever-growing timeline that was increasingly used in our research as the information flow became almost overwhelming.  As the timeline became increasingly valuable to our work, we began to discuss the option of getting a version out to the public.  [Video clip]

Merck, Ivermectin & Molnupiravir — A Tale of Two Pills.  Lately, you would have heard a lot of drama regarding the first of our two pills, ivermectin, in the news.  Most of it will be negatively biased against the Nobel Peace Prize winning medication.  Many stories are focused on the dangers of people self-medicating with the veterinary version of ivermectin, and the journalist calling out 'right-wing' commentators who are spreading "misinformation", or crazy conspiracy theories regarding its efficacy for covid, despite our health authorities finding "no evidence" that it works.  The subtext for most of these articles seem to be, "These people are stupid, crazy right-wing nutjobs who are self-medicating with horse paste for no good reason."  Many articles are quick to point out the FDA, (the Australian version is the TGA) and the CDC have not "approved" ivermectin for use in Covid-19.  These appeals to authority are meant to silence anybody who dares to offer a different view of the drug's efficacy.  However, many of these 'anti-ivermectin' news reports are leaving out a lot of the facts regarding ivermectin and the research that is already there and is ongoing.  None seem to mention any of the positive case studies that abound of people recovering from Covid-19 who have used ivermectin as part of their treatment.  Anyone who just reads these stories with their morning coffee will just shake their head in confused disbelief and go on to the next story.  What these stories are designed to do is leave a derisive stain on the name ivermectin and associate it with misinformation, tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists and anti-vaxxers.

Vitamin D ameliorates severe covid-19, preventing complications and death.  Mounting evidence shows that vitamin D deficiency is predicative of severe covid-19.  Hundreds of doctors from around the world have called for vitamin D education and distribution, especially for at-risk demographics of people.  The Trinity College in Dublin and the University of Edinburgh conducted research on vitamin D levels from sunlight and studied its effect against covid-19.  Approximately 500,000 individuals from the United Kingdom were involved in a UVB-predicted vitamin D study, measuring the effect of vitamin D levels against severe covid-19 disease and death.  Ambient ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation is the precursor for vitamin D production within the skin.  Most studies on vitamin D focus on vitamin D supplementation and its effect on covid-19 outcomes.  This study investigated the role of daily sunshine exposure, because this is the purest, most important source of vitamin D.  In the study, individuals with regular UVB exposure in their daily lives had a stronger immune response that protected them against severe respiratory disease and death.

Woke Educator Indoctrinates Little Kids with COVID-Friendly Version of Common Nursery.  Over the weekend, a stunning video began making the rounds on social media that appeared to be filmed by a teacher who was teaching her students a cute little song about wearing their masks to school.

400 Workers Quit Large Michigan Hospital System Over COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate.  Approximately 400 healthcare workers at one of Michigan's largest hospital systems have resigned over the system's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  The roughly 33,000 workers at Henry Ford Health System, which includes five hospitals, were required to get a COVID-19 vaccine by Sept. 10.  Those who didn't receive an exemption or comply with the mandate were given until Oct. 1 to comply or face repercussions.  Some 93 percent of workers got at least one shot of a vaccine and another 6 percent received a religious or medical exemption, Bob Riney, president of healthcare operations and chief operating officer for the system, told reporters in a briefing Wednesday.  Less than 1 percent, or about 400 workers, quit.  "No one has been fired, and no one will be fired.  Anyone who leaves because of the vaccine requirement is being classified as a voluntary resignation," Riney said.

Sweden, Denmark both ban Moderna covid vaccine for causing myocarditis in young people.  After it was determined that the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) "vaccine" from Moderna causes myocarditis particularly in the young, the Nordic countries of Sweden and Denmark both banned it from being used in specific age groups.  According to reports, a new preliminary analysis from Swedish and Nordic data sources found that "SpikeVax," as Moderna is now calling it, damages young people's bodies and must cease from being administered.  The Swedish Public Health Agency issued a recommendation that Moderna's SpikeVax be immediately discontinued for all young people born after 1991.  Denmark already imposed a ban on the drug for children between the ages of 12 and 17.  "The Swedish Public Health Agency has decided to suspend the use of Moderna's vaccine Spikevax, for everyone born in 1991 and later, for precautionary reasons," the agency announced.

Covid doesn't even exist in fully normal Sweden, while deaths are skyrocketing in fully vaccinated Israel.  Remember back in the early days of the plandemic when it was widely reported that Sweden, which never imposed lockdowns or mask mandates, fared better than just about every other country in the world that oppressed its citizens?  Well, the same thing is happening once again with the so-called "vaccines."  Sweden has basically told the Branch Covidians to go to hell, and the result is that the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) is basically non-existent.  Meanwhile in Israel, one of the most "fully vaccinated" countries in the world, the death toll is skyrocketing.  The latest data shows that the death rate in the "Promised Land" is going parabolic as Israelis get injected with two, three, and soon to be four Chinese Virus needles.  In Sweden, on the other hand, where natural immunity reigns supreme, life is pretty much back to pre-covid normal.  How can this be if Fauci Flu shots are what is supposed to save us all from testing "positive?" The answer is simple:  The shots are a fraud.  Fortunately for Swedes, this is common knowledge.  Unfortunately for Israel, Australia, the United States and other heavily compromised countries, it is a constant fight for health freedom with no end in sight.

Over half a million adverse events reported after COVID vaccinations in the US so far.  The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has received 569,294 adverse event reports associated with Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations in the United States.  Among the most common disorders reported after the vaccinations include temperature-related issues, skin problems and muscle movement and neuropathy.  Others include non-specified pain-related issues, weakness, injection site reactions, headaches, heart problems and lung or respiratory problems.  Abdominal problems, getting COVID after vaccination, blood clots or bleeding, product issues and mood or memory problems have also been reported.  Each symptom does not necessarily equate to one patient as adverse reports usually include multiple symptoms for a single patient.  Reporting of illnesses and symptoms that occur after COVID-19 vaccination does not also always mean that they are caused by the vaccine.  The system itself is designed to collect adverse events that occur after vaccination to uncover patterns of illnesses that have not captured during vaccine studies.

Leaked emails show Pfizer wanted to hide COVID vaccine's connection to abortion.  A whistleblower employed by vaccine maker Pfizer has leaked a chain of emails by company executives discussing how to best withhold information from the public on the use of fetal cell lines derived from an aborted baby in the development of the Pfizer vaccine.  In a video released by Project Veritas today [10/7/2021], Pfizer whistleblower Melissa Strickler provided a chain of emails between top Pfizer executives including VP and CSO Philip Dormitzer and Senior Director of Worldwide Research Vanessa Gelman, in which they discuss the appropriate script and "approved answer" to use in order to avoid disclosing information to the public on the use of fetal cell lines in creating the vaccine.

Universities Giving Students Tools to Report Each Other's COVID Violations.  Michigan State University provides students with reporting system to achieve what the school describes as a "safe and supportive environment" for its community members.  The school's Culturally Inclusive College Sharing System (CIC) is an online submission form allows the university to "track and respond to behaviors and situations that work to support or detract from [its] goals of a safe and supportive environment."  The form tells students that some protected speech can still warrant a report.  Anything intended to "intimidate, demean, mock, degrade, marginalize, or threaten" their identities, real or perceived, is worth notifying the university about.  Actions need not be intended to harm and can do as little as promote a "negative, hostile, or unwelcoming environment for the target."

Doctors are getting angry at their patients.  We have been told for almost two years that COVID is a deadly disease.  Naturally, when people test positive for COVID, they want to be treated to avoid serious illness.  Instead, they are sent home to quarantine, with no medical treatment until they become seriously ill.  Some patients take exception to this approach and ask for ivermectin, which is being used outside of the United States to treat early COVID. There is a significantly lower incidence of serious cases of COVID in countries that use ivermectin for early exposures.  Doctors are not taking kindly to the suggestion that patients should have access to medication that can prevent serious illness.  They are denouncing ivermectin as a veterinary drug as if they were not aware that it was developed for human use, that the FDA approved it for human use back in the 1990s, and that almost 4 billion doses have been administered around the world in the past 30 years.  It's true ivermectin was developed to treat parasites, not viruses, and that it is used for livestock as well as humans.  However, there are a number of life-saving medications that are not being used for their original purpose.

The Editor says...
Mrs. Editor and I know some people who live about an hour outside of Fort Worth, and have horses on their property.  When they go to the pharmacy to get ivermectin, the pharmacist now insists that they prove they own horses before he will hand over the drug.  The correct response is either, "just look at the bottom of my shoes," or "who else would wear a belt buckle like this?"

Man Gets Kicked Off Flight Because His Mask Was Low Even Though He Pleaded And Apologized.  This pathetic scene is making its rounds on social media showing a poor guy trying to fly to Denver and a nasty little, power-hungry airline waitress forces him off the flight for having his mask too low.  It is not known which airline this was but it reflected the sad state of affairs when it comes to traveling via airlines.  The man is seen begging the steward to stay on board and promised not to wear his mask low.  You can clearly see his mask is pulled up to his eyes.  The steward doesn't care, he tells him to grab his bags and get off the flight and he can have his 500 dollars refunded.  When the passenger asks how is he going to get to Denver, the heartless steward tells him to get the 500 dollars and figure it out.  [Video clip]

Vaccine Hesitancy, the Medical Establishment, and the COVID Apocalypse.  [Scroll down]  But the biggest shock of the commission statement comes next.  The writers insist that they were "concerned about the emphasis and focus on new and unproven vaccine technologies, such as mRNA, DNA, and viral-vector technologies, which will be expensive and have not been shown to offer benefits (in terms of vaccine immunity or safety) over traditional and far less expensive inactivated virus, attenuated virus, and recombinant protein approaches."  So many things bear mentioning here.  First, note the odd, prudential concern with monetary cost in a report that spends pages talking about "restructuring public and private finances" and "rebuilding the world economy" — goals that seem to throw economic caution to the wind.  Secondly (and much more importantly), the text expresses "concern" with mRNA vaccine technology.  Why is this a surprise?  Because most of the vaccines currently being distributed all over the world are mRNA vaccines.  In other words, in a span of 90 days, the medical establishment went from professing skepticism about the efficacy and safety of mRNA vaccines to a univocal scientific "consensus" that such vaccines — which went through abbreviated testing — are not only entirely safe, but must be widely administered to achieve the desired public health outcomes.  Of course, today the CDC will tell you that any concern about these vaccines is scientifically ungrounded, an idea dutifully (and insanely) echoed by the entire mainstream media.

Disobey.  We've been told that over and over again that our children are in danger at school if they are not masked and vaccinated.  We're told this despite the overwhelming evidence that the fatal risk to children is statistically near zero.  The Europeans — whom progressives often look to as the model of who we should be in America — have been sending their children to school, unmasked and unvaccinated, this entire time.  They've been fine, even as they choose to restrict adults in other areas.  The one thing they've been careful to maintain is a logical approach to children and education.  And yet, here we are, back to talking about school closures, mandating vaccines that have no long-term studies for children who don't need them, masking kids in school and canceling school activities based on political edicts rather than medical realities.  We've been told that locking down our communities, shutting down our businesses and restricting the social movements and activities of people is the way to protect ourselves from a pandemic.  Still, the places that have locked down the harshest have not escaped COVID.

Wuhan scientists and US researchers planned to create a new coronavirus in 2018.  US and Chinese scientists were planning to create a new coronavirus before the pandemic erupted, leaked proposals show.  Last month, a grant application submitted to the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) revealed that an international team of scientists had planned to mix genetic data of similar strains to create a new virus.  The grant application was made in 2018 and leaked to Drastic, the pandemic origins analysis group.  'We will compile sequence/RNAseq data from a panel of closely related strains and compare full length genomes, scanning for unique SNPs representing sequencing errors.

Ivermectin -- Truth and Totalitarianism.  [Scroll down]  However, lying was required, and the payoff came on Wednesday, June 9, 2021, when Merck got a fat reward.  They announced the US government had agreed to pay $1.2 billion for 1.7 million doses of their new antiviral, Molnupiravir, BEFORE clinical testing showed either effectiveness or safety.  Our hard-earned tax dollars were irresponsibly handed over to Merck by an agency charged with a fiduciary duty to protect our health.  So in the end, Scott Gottlieb did not endanger Pfizer's bottom line.  Just as Moderna was choreographed to go first in the vaccine rollout, Merck was first with the antiviral, and Pfizer first with the booster.  They would take turns as there was more than enough profit to go around.  Soon it would be Pfizer's turn at the antiviral trough, but they had to be patient for now.  There was an order and method to this.  But the craftiest strategy of all was Merck's: Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.

The federal government is paying $705 for each dose of this untested "vaccine," while simultaneously suppressing any discussion of low-cost alternatives.

Undercover Video:  Pfizer Scientists Say Natural Immunity Is Superior and Big Pharma Is Suppressing Info for Money.  James O'Keefe and Project Veritas has struck again and this time, it looks like undercover honey pots took some Pfizer nerds out for dinner and got them talking about stuff The Man doesn't want you to know — specifically, that natural immunity is better than the COVID vaccine.  Duh.  We all know this.  But the Ministry of Truth is trying to bury knowledge we've all had since birth and pretend that none of our grandparents knew how to treat a respiratory virus.  Project Veritas's new undercover video exposes Pfizer scientists admitting what we all already know.  Get ready for this one.  It's illuminating.

Why This Doctor Risked the Nobel Prize to Speak Out Against Universal COVID-19 Vaccination.  In this interview, [Dr. Robert] Malone, who was among the pioneers of mRNA vaccine technology in the late 1980s, recounts his belief that genetic vaccines such as mRNA and viral vector vaccines may risk causing antibody dependant enhancement — where a vaccine causes the production of rogue antibodies, which coming into contact with the virus, act as a Trojan Horse shuttling it, now unchallenged by the immune system, directly into the host cell where it can replicate unhindered.  Malone is not against COVID-19 vaccines.  But he is against compulsory and universal vaccination, which he thinks is potentially dangerous.  He believes that the viral load in vaccinated people who are infected is not just as high but possibly higher than the viral load in unvaccinated people who are infected — and thus that vaccinated people are potentially just as likely to transmit the virus as unvaccinated people.

Idaho's lieutenant governor issues vaccine executive order while gov is away; Little says he will rescind it.  Idaho Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin on Tuesday issued an executive order banning vaccine mandates and required coronavirus testing in schools and colleges in the state, prompting Gov. Brad Little to say he had not authorized her to act on his behalf while he was at the U.S-Mexico border.  Little said he would "rescind" any executive orders McGeachin issues while he is away and she is acting governor, including her attempt this week to send National Guard troops to the border.  "I am in Texas performing my duties as the duly elected Governor of Idaho, and I have not authorized the Lt. Governor to act on my behalf," Little said in a statement on Tuesday.  "I will be rescinding and reversing any actions taken by the Lt. Governor when I return."  He is expected back in the state on Wednesday [10/6/2021].

Washington woman in late 30s dies from J&J vaccine blood-clotting syndrome.  Washington state health authorities say a woman in her late 30s has died from a rare blood-clotting syndrome after receiving the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.  Public Health Seattle & King County said Tuesday the woman was the fourth person in the United States to die due to blood clotting issues following the J&J vaccine.  Three deaths were reported before federal authorities temporarily halted J&J vaccinations in April.  A spokesperson for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the agency is aware of, and is looking into, additional reported clot deaths since then, including the one in Washington state.

UCHealth denies kidney transplant to unvaccinated woman in stage 5 renal failure.  A Colorado woman with stage 5 renal failure is scrambling to find a new hospital to perform a kidney transplant after a health system in the state denied the transplant due to her and her donor being unvaccinated against the coronavirus.  "Here I am, willing to be a direct donor to her.  It does not affect any other patient on the transplant list," Jaimee Fougner, Leilani Lutali's kidney donor, told CBS4.  "How can I sit here and allow them to murder my friend when I've got a perfectly good kidney and can save her life?"  Lutali said she received a letter from Colorado health system UCHealth at the end of September explaining that she and Fougner have 30 days to begin the vaccine process.  They would be removed from the kidney transplant list if they refuse the shots.

PCR Sales Soared in Wuhan Before 1st Official COVID-19 Cases Publicized:  Report.  Spending on tests that can be used to detect the novel coronavirus soared in Wuhan, China, several months before the first official reporting of COVID-19 cases, according to research by Australian cybersecurity firm Internet 2.0.  The firm tracked the sales of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests over several years, revealing an almost 50 percent increase between 2018 to 2019 — the year before the COVID-19 outbreak spread across the world, suggesting the possibility that the virus was already circulating in communities during the northern summer in 2019 before it was made public by Beijing.

JPMorgan will no longer hire unvaccinated employees for client-facing roles.  JPMorgan is clamping down on hires of new employees who don't get the COVID vaccine, even as it imposes limits on business travel for unvaccinated workers and forces them to share the costs of testing.  The mega-bank headed by Jamie Dimon said in a memo late Monday that unvaccinated individuals in client-facing roles will keep their jobs but moving forward, the bank will only hire fully vaccinated individuals for those positions.  "Client-facing roles and those requiring business travel, will necessitate employees to be vaccinated to effectively perform their jobs," the memo said.  JPMorgan said it will continue to "host in-person client events because we greatly value the engagement and relationship-building opportunities" but will limit attendance to those who are fully vaccinated.

Democratic vaccine crackdown gives [the] GOP [an] opening with mandate-wary Black voters.  The Democratic embrace of vaccine mandates is running into resistance from some prominent Black athletes and activists, an unforeseen political side effect with implications for the party's grip on a crucial voting bloc ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.  A bevy of NBA stars has spoken out against the COVID-19 vaccination requirements.  Golden State Warriors veteran Draymond Green defended vaccine-hesitant teammate Andrew Wiggins by arguing that mandating the shot "goes against everything that America stands for."  "I think you have to honor people's feelings and their own personal beliefs, and I think that's been lost when it comes to vaccinated and unvaccinated," Mr. Green said Friday [10/1/2021] at a press conference.  "You say we live in the land of the free.  Well, you're not giving anyone freedom because you're making people do something, essentially."

Republicans Shout Down Lindsey Graham for Pushing Vaccine.  Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was booed by Republican activists Saturday after he suggested they should consider taking the coronavirus vaccine, making him the latest prominent Republican to face a backlash from the party's grassroots over the vaccine.  Speaking at a county Republican event in Summerville, South Carolina, Graham said he had received the vaccine and encouraged audience members to take the vaccine as well.  "If you haven't had the vaccine you ought to think about getting it because if you're my age — " Graham said, before he was interrupted by boos and shouts of "No!" from the audience.

Colorado educator sues after being barred from campus over COVID-19 'hoax'.  Celeste Archer was driving to work at the University of Colorado Denver last month when she learned she had been banned from campus because she had contracted or been exposed to the coronavirus — which wasn't true.  Before Ms. Archer had a chance to clear it up, however, she was told she would need to undergo contact tracing and school administrators were alerted to her status — all based on an anonymous complaint that her attorney described as a "hoax."  "I called the person who was the signatory of that email and said, 'What is this?  I don't have COVID, never have had it, have no symptoms,'" Ms. Archer told The Washington Times.  "And her reply to me was that 'somebody heard that they heard that you were showing symptoms or had tested positive.'  And that's when I said, 'I'm sorry, what?'  The whole thing was based on something somebody had heard.  All hearsay."

Anthony Fauci Is a Puppy Killer... Literally.  There are many reasons to hate Dr. Anthony Fauci.  His imperial majesty is still out there dropping interviews and injecting more chaos into the COVID pandemic.  His advice has changed so many times that no one can keep count.  As we look back, the flip-flop over masks was the harbinger for the chaos that was to come from these so-called experts.  They're not white lab coat-wearing fascists.  Fauci probably has done more to increase vaccine skepticism with his contradictory advice.  Get the shot but stay inside and keep wearing a mask.  You don't need to be a scientist to figure out that when people heard this fear porn, they wondered if the vaccine even worked.  It does — but you'd never know with these clowns in charge.  His obnoxious ego doesn't help either.  Every time he's on CNN, the credibility of this institution dies.  As of now, it's in a persistent vegetative state.  Now, he's saying that it might be too early to say if we can see our families at Christmas.  Sorry, dude — we're not waiting on you to give the okay.  We have three vaccines.  It's over.  And you don't have the power to do anything so shut [...] up.  Now, there's evidence that he's a dog killer as well.

Whose fault is that, governor?
Governor: Staff shortages becoming dire in Va. hospitals.  Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said that hospital workers in the state are "losing their patience" and that medical facilities will not be able to handle all patients with COVID-19 or other ailments if hospitals are understaffed beyond where they are now.  "They need our help," he said Monday [10/4/2021] at a news conference.  "It's getting to the point where we worry about nurses and technicians and custodians — they're at the point where they can't take it anymore.  We don't want to get to that point, where there's not enough staff, there aren't enough [staffed] beds."  According to the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association, Virginia is in the midst of a fourth surge of the coronavirus with the second-highest spike, after the height reached just after the holidays, when total daily hospitalizations exceeded 3,200.  Thursday's COVID hospitalization number was 2,068.

Study Finds Predominance of Antibody-Resistant SARS-CoV-2 Variants in Vaccine Breakthrough Cases in San Francisco Bay Area.  What this study finds is exactly what vaccine developer Geert Vanden Bossche (Belgium) has been predicting.  The predominance of antibody-resistant SARS-CoV-2 variants in vaccine breakthrough cases from the San Francisco Bay Area, California.  The California study finds that vaccinated individuals are more susceptible to COVID variant infections than unvaccinated.  Geer Vanden Bossche has been warning that vaccine antibodies would suppress natural antibody responses.  The vaccine antibodies take control of the immune system and defend only against a targeted virus.  Among vaccinated individuals, a COVID variant virus is not recognized by the specialized antibodies provided by the vaccine, and the natural antibodies have been programmed to stand down.

37-Year-Old Oregon Mom Dies From Vaccine Complication, Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytenopenia, Blood Clots.  A terribly sad story from Oregon highlighting a young mother who did not want to take the COVID-19 vaccine but was forced by government demands to accept the vaccination shot in order to guide her two children, Bridget and Clara, through school.  After taking the jab, Ms. Wilson died from blood clots caused by the vaccine.

What Every Parent Must Know About Pfizer.  The CEO of Pfizer (market cap: $240.5 billion) is Albert Bourla (2020 compensation package: $21 million).  Bourla and his colleagues want your kids to start getting jabbed with his company's COVID-19 vaccine by Thanksgiving.  Triumphant after the Biden administration last week approved Pfizer's COVID-19 booster shots (estimated global sales:  $26 billion), the company is touting study results (preliminary and non-peer-reviewed), which purportedly show "robust" antibody response and "favorable" safety outcomes for children ages 5 [to] 11 who received a two-dose combo in clinical trials.  Now, here are some facts all moms and dads must know about Pfizer before they allow their young daughters and sons to be guinea pigs of a profit-maximizing multinational corporation.  Twenty-five years ago, Pfizer sent a team to Kano, Nigeria, during a meningococcal meningitis outbreak.  They conducted an "open label" (unblinded) clinical trial involving 200 children, half of whom were given Pfizer's new antibiotic Trovan and half of whom received the gold standard treatment, ceftriaxone.  Watchdogs noted that Pfizer used substantially lower doses of ceftriaxone to rig the trials in favor of Trovan.  At the time of the Kano trial, Pfizer was pushing for approval from the Food and Drug Administration of their latest potential billion-dollar cash cow for pediatric use.  Eleven Nigerian children died, five after receiving Pfizer's product and six after receiving lower-than-normal doses of the older drug.

New Zealand Prime Minister Finally Admits A "COVID Zero" Policy Is Utterly Ridiculous.  New Zealand has been in the midst of another intense, draconian lockdown for the past seven weeks after discovering that their supposed "zero COVID" status had given way to several cases on the island nation.  With a universal healthcare system that — like every other socialist policy — is not equipped or flexible enough to deal with a constantly evolving health crisis, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern decided the only option was to basically imprison New Zealanders in their homes until COVID had disappeared.  The policy was not only unpopular, it was chaotic.  New Zealanders complained about unclear rules for those trying to return home from international travel, rules for "essential" travel around the country and a confused vaccine rollout that is still experiencing delays despite their "customers" being basically a captive audience at this point.

498 children have been killed by COVID since the pandemic began, fewer than the number who die annually from car crashes and drownings, CDC figures reveal.  Fewer than 500 children have died of COVID-19 since figures were first recorded in May 2020, the CDC said, a figure exponentially outnumbered by children killed in drownings, gun-violence incidents, and other fatal injuries.  A total of 498 children had been killed by COVID up to the week ending September 23, which are the most recent CDC figures available.  Most children in the US die as a result of various accidents, including car crashes, drowning, and from being shot, the CDC says.  A total of 3,343 children 19 and under lost their lives in traffic accidents in 2019, while there is an estimate of almost 4,000 children dying of fatal accidental drownings every year.

Christianity is dying and being replaced by cult of coronavirus.  Politicians used the pandemic across the country to close thousands of churches and throw Christians in prison for practicing their faith.  There was the scene, for example, last fall in Idaho.  Police arresting a congregation for singing hymns outdoors.  Socially distanced hymn singing outside.  So what exactly [were] these people's crimes?  The tape of that will be studied by future generations of historians to try and figure out what was going on.  What did these people do wrong?  Well, they publicly affirmed their belief in a power higher than government.  That's not allowed.  Fewer and fewer Americans do that — or even think to.  But that does not mean, and this is the critical point, that does not mean this has become a secular country.

CNBC anchor to Fauci:  Are you sure breakthrough infections are as rare as you guys keep claiming?  A notable example from Friday [10/1/2021] of a mainstream non-Fox news anchor expressing some polite skepticism about vaccine efficacy.  I understand that the vaccines work to prevent hospitalization and death and that's amazing, says Sara Eisen, but the impression given by public-health experts is that they largely prevent infections too, and, well, do they?  Quote:  "Are you too casual about the limitations of the vaccine?  Because it does feel to me that these breakthroughs are happening, they're happening regularly, and we haven't really seen the government pay that much attention to them or warn about them too much."  Five people in her own family, three of them vaccinated, caught COVID recently.  Even larger circles of vaccinated people have experienced outbreaks.  She's not speaking hypothetically.

NIH Director abruptly steps down.  After seeing him on nearly every cable news show on a daily basis for months on end, it was announced last night that Dr. Francis Collins, the Director of the National Institute of Health, is stepping down.  Collins took the role under Barack Obama and retained the position over the course of three presidencies.  He's been highly "outspoken" (to put it mildly) about what sort of executive mandates regarding face masks and vaccinations were required to combat the pandemic.  So was this some sort of signal that the battle against the novel coronavirus is essentially over or just a normal career move?

Dr. Evil Has Now Proclaimed Your Rights Mean Nothing In The Face Of The Greater Good.  Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the United States conveyed an authoritarian-like message to Canadians opposed to COVID vaccine mandates and passports while delivering a lecture at McGill University.  Dr. Fauci's message for Canadians opposed to COVID vaccine mandates and passports: "there comes a time when you do have to give up what you consider your individual right of making your own decision."  Don't think for a second Fauci doesn't feel the same way towards Americans.  [Video clip]

Meet The Real Monster Of Victoria Who Says You And Your Kids Won't Eat If You Don't Vax.  It's been a long time since Western, civilized nations had monsters like Hitler and Mussolini.  The new monsters emerging from the post COVID world have a new plan and it's a little more subtle than the previous aforementioned ones.  Dan Andrews, the premier of Victoria, Australia just announced that if you aren't vaccinated by October 15th, you won't have a job... NO EXEMPTIONS!  There was no mention of any sort of unemployment benefits but there has been talk of cutting of medical services as well for the unvaccinated.  QR code technology will form the backbone of Victoria's mandatory vaccination scheme for venues opening to increased numbers of patrons once the state reaches its 70 percent full-dose target about October 26.  [Video clip]

Pentagon mandates COVID-19 vaccine for civilian workers.  All civilians who work for the Defense Department and the military services must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by Nov. 22, under new guidelines released Monday [10/4/2021].  A memo signed by Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks on Friday said the new mandate is in line with the presidential directive issued last month requiring federal agencies to implement vaccine requirements.  "Vaccinating (department) civilian employees against COVID-19 will save lives and allow for the defense of our Nation," said Hicks.  "Thank you for your focus on this critical mission."

Heroes of the Pandemic.  Many highly accomplished and credentialed medical professionals have put their careers and reputations on the line with their public opposition to the failed COVID strategies of the global biomedical complex. [...] The now-famous "Rome Declaration" wasn't even the first time a large number of medical experts had gone on the record to reject the tenets of the church of COVID.  A year ago, more than 860,000 infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists signed a declaration expressing their "grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies."  The Great Barrington Declaration argued that "the most compassionate" way to reach herd immunity while minimizing mortality and social harm was "to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk."  Unfortunately, because of the work they've done over the past year and a half advocating for early treatments, and raising red flags about the experimental vaccines, many brave doctors and scientists have had their voices muzzled and their reputations smeared by the corporate media.

No One Trusts Public Health Officials — Not Even Health Care Professionals.  There is a public health crisis in America and it's not the pandemic.  The public health crisis in the U.S. is a lack of faith in the credibility of public health experts and officials whose double standards, misinformation, and selective adherence to certain "facts" have caused widespread confusion, resentment, and fright in millions of people. [...] Many will point to polls on subjects like vaccine hesitancy or the efficacy of masks and conclude the opposition comes from knuckle-dragging Trump supporters.  Even if that were true — and it isn't — how would they explain the overwhelming mistrust of public health officials by doctors, nurses and other health care professionals?

Northwell Health 'exits' 1,400 workers in NY who refused COVID vaccine.  Northwell Health parted ways with 1,400 employees after they refused to comply with New York State's COVID-19 vaccine mandate for health care workers, a spokesperson said Monday [10/4/2021].  The workforce for the largest health care network in New York City was 100% vaccinated, as of Monday.  "This allows us to continue to provide exceptional care at all of our facilities, without interruption and remain open and fully operational," the spokesperson said in a statement to PIX11.

The Editor says...
It's hard to imagine how the company can "remain open and fully operational" after getting rid of 1,400 employees who were presumably doing something to earn a paycheck as recently as last week.

Uncle Ted Nugent Doesn't Hold Back When Describing The Vaccinated.  During an Oct 1st interview with "Off The Record", rocker Ted Nugent didn't hold back when describing how he felt with all the vaccinated people in the country[.]  Asked what he would say to the people who believe it's a worthwhile vaccine and it's saving lives, Ted said:  "I appreciate the opportunity to speak to the people that went ahead and got the jab.  I speak their language.  I will speak to them thusly:  Baaaaaah," he said, imitating a sheep.  [Video clip]

The COVID Survey That Should Have Rocked the World.  In March 2021, a year into the Covid-19 pandemic, the New York Times shared the results of a comprehensive survey of 35,000 Americans done by Gallup and Franklin Templeton.  True to form, the Times refused to face the survey's epic implications.  The Times started pulling punches in the headline, "Covid's Partisan Errors:  Republicans tend to underestimate Covid risks — and Democrats tend to exaggerate them."  This equivocation papered over the real news hook of the story, namely that health officials and their media enablers scared policy makers, especially in blue states, into making catastrophic, fear-based misjudgments.  "To many liberals, Covid has become another example of the modern Republican Party's hostility to facts and evidence," wrote reporter David Leonhardt, unaware that he just delivered a laugh line.  In assessing the GOP worldview, Leonhardt, like most of his media colleagues, saw hostility in just about every Republican gesture.

Video: High School Teacher Bullies Her Unvaccianted Students, Accuses Them Of Killing People — The School Tried To Destroy Evidence.  Tanner is a 10th-grader at Puyallup High School.  He says his biology teacher became upset that some students were improperly wearing their masks.  It set her off on a rant against her unvaccinated students.  She called unvaccinated students "selfish" and said they weren't welcome at school.  She accused her unvaccinated students of killing people by spreading variants of the virus, warning them that they could "literally kill everyone on the planet."  That teacher is now on paid administrative leave pending an investigation into her conduct.  But before the investigation took place, the school's vice principal, who identifies as an abolitionist educator, tried to have the video evidence deleted[.]

Member of 'healthcare is a human right' party wants the unvaccinated to pay.  Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California believes the unvaccinated should have to pay for coronavirus-related increases in healthcare costs.  This is a curious position for a member of the party of "healthcare is a basic human right" to embrace.  Then again, no one ever accused Lieu of being consistent — or even particularly bright.  "If you are going to engage in riskier actions that increase healthcare costs and healthcare burdens on all of us," the congressman said this weekend, "then you should be the one paying for the increased risk."  Lieu's comments came in response to a Forbes article titled "Louisiana Hospital Chain Hikes Insurance Premiums For Employees With Unvaccinated Spouses."

Fauci Has Authoritarian-Like Message To "Give Up" Your Rights, And Take Vaccine.  American physician Dr. Anthony Fauci delivered a strong message to Canadians who are unwilling to get vaccinated because they believe it violates their charter rights.  Speaking at a McGill University lecture on October 1, Dr. Fauci said a pandemic is one of the scenarios where certain individual rights need to be given up for the greater good of society.

American Liberty Must Not Become Coronavirus Casualty.  When announcing his nationwide vaccine mandate, President Joe Biden declared, "This is not about freedom." But for Americans who live outside the Beltway, it is absolutely about freedom, because America is about freedom.  Yes, the coronavirus is still with us.  Yes, it is still potentially dangerous, particularly to vulnerable Americans.  But the need long since has passed for extraordinary measures such as lockdowns, mask mandates, and other restrictions on American liberty.  In a country with competent leaders, all such measures — most especially the forced vaccinations for COVID-19 recently ordered by Biden — would be repealed, and Americans would be allowed to return to their normal lives.

Did The Fourth Branch of Government Release SARS-CoV-2 Then Blame China?  So much research has been done, we essentially know the majority of the background details.  The SARS-CoV-2 virus commonly known as COVID-19 was made in a lab by scientists.  The virus then went from a lab to the global population in late 2019/early 2020.  The epicenter of the outbreak appears to be one of the labs working on the virus in Wuhan, China.  Those essential big picture items are no longer debated; although the Chinese government does not agree for obvious reasons.  With the 'where', 'when' and 'how' essentially agreed, the question of 'who' and 'why' remains.

Anthony Fauci on Forced Vaccines:  "You Have to Give Up Your Individual Rights for The Greater Good of Society".  It's always right there, just below the surface.  Wait long enough and you will see it.  Obama's,"You didn't build that", is one recent example.  Hillary Clinton's, "It takes a village" is another.  Today, Anthony Fauci says you do not have "individual rights", you have collective rights and responsibilities to the greater good of society.  This vile little worm with a thirst for power is nothing more than a Fabian Socialist.

Booster-pushing Fauci says it's 'too soon to tell' whether families should gather for Christmas.  CBS News' "Face the Nation" anchor Margaret Brennan asked Dr. Fauci Sunday if families should gather for Christmas this year and he said that it's just "too soon to tell" while relentlessly pushing vaccinations and booster shots for Americans.  Brennan asked, "There are two new studies out that show COVID has gotten better at transmitting through aerosols, just through the air.  What does that mean?  We're going into cold weather, the holidays.  Do people need to start looking around and say it is too risky to gather with family members if there are unvaccinated children?"

This year, just like last year, and next year, and the year after that.
CDC recommends "virtual Thanksgiving" this year.  After the patron saint of restricting Americans' freedoms suggested we might need to cancel Christmas, I suppose this shouldn't come as all that much of a surprise.  The CDC is announcing today that they are recommending that Americans celebrate Thanksgiving virtually again this year.  You probably don't need me to tell you that this is one turkey of an idea that Joe Biden isn't going to be able to make fly.  But the new guidelines have all sorts of unpleasant nuggets built into them for any of you dangerous people who still insist on carving up the turkey with your family.  Oh, and you have to scroll down to the bottom of the announcement to find it, but they're saying the same thing for Halloween as well.

Scott Gottlieb responds to Fauci:  Nothing's going to stop us from getting together for Christmas.  He says this not in a spirit of defiance but as an acknowledgment of simple fact.  Nothing's going to stop Americans from getting together for Christmas.  If he can grasp reality, why can't Fauci?  This is the way public health guidance should be given, not with scolding about what should and shouldn't be done but with a polite request for prudence and some recommendations about how to manage risk.  [Tweet]  His advice about using rapid tests to make sure everyone's uninfected before gathering is shrewd.  Although, uh, good luck finding one if you live in the United States:  [Tweet]

They Can't Win if We Won't Surrender.  The pandemic was the alarm that wakes us up before the building burns down around us.  It gave us a glimpse of a future without liberty.
  •   Autocratic orders
  •   Draconian restrictions
  •   Unequal treatment under the law
  •   Fraudulent elections
  •   Blatant disregard of the Constitution
Thankfully, COVID gave us a taste of tyranny on the cheap.  America didn't become a Cuba or Venezuela to experience it.  The pandemic has shown us how important and fragile liberty is.  I'll never take it for granted again.  I suspect a great number of patriots feel the same way.  We're seeing an awakening all across America.

A COVID guessing game.  What if every excuse for vaccinating every living person against COVID-19 is wrong?  If so, how should that change things?  Let's play what if.  What if the long-term harm to children being vaccinated is unknown?  It is.  What if the short-term harm to people in general may be great, even deadly?  Both are true.  What if the COVID vaccinations don't prevent contracting or transmitting the virus?  They don't.  What if only about 5% of deaths attributed to COVID showed only COVID to be the cause of death on the death certificates?  They do.  What if the remaining 95% were just as likely to have been killed by one of the four other co-morbidity causes of death also shown on the death certificate?  They are.  What if, as reported to the government, deaths are high in the short-term after being given the vaccine?  They are.  What if the clinical trials used to justify the vaccine were "very short-term"?  They were.  What if the clinical trials consequently did not — could not — address what the long-term effects of the vaccine would be?  They did not and cannot.

Prominent physician: Don't get a COVID shot.  Dr. Peter McCullough, a prominent cardiologist, internist and professor of medicine who has testified to the U.S. Senate, has explained that he is not against vaccines, and many of his patients have been vaccinated for COVID-19.  But he said in a new interview this week that with increasing reports of adverse effects, it's too risky for people who have a more than 99% survival rate to receive one of the experimental vaccines.  "Based on the safety data now, I can no longer recommend it," he said in an interview with journalist and author John Leake.  "There are over 4,000 dead Americans, there are over 10,000 in Europe that die on days one, two and three after the vaccine," said McCullough.

NIH doesn't recommend ivermectin because its panel members have conflicting financial interests.  The National Institutes of Health (NIH) does not think that anyone should ever be allowed to use ivermectin to try to treat a Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) infection.  The reason is because its board members have financial interests elsewhere.  You see, by allowing ivermectin to be used as an early treatment for Chinese Germs, NIH board members could lose money in their other investments.  And since money is their god, your life must be sacrificed on the altar of "science."  According to the NIH, there is supposedly "insufficient evidence" to support the use of ivermectin, which means that the agency will not recommend its use.  Upon closer look, though, "insufficient evidence" is just a convenient excuse.

Overcoming the Blockade:  Getting Ivermectin Prescriptions Filled.  The 5 Truths:  [#1] No corporate policy exists against filling ivermectin by Walgreens, CVS, or Rite-Aid.  No policy exists for major grocery/pharmacies:  Kroger, Publix, Walmart, Sam's Club, Costco.  [#2] [There is] No national supply shortage in the United States at this time.  [#3] [There are] Very few circumstances where a pharmacy/pharmacist cannot obtain a supply of ivermectin within 24 [to] 48 hours of ordering.  [#4] FDA approval for COVID-19 is not required to prescribe ivermectin off-label — in fact, 20% of all prescriptions written in the U.S. are off-label.  [#5] Very few U.S. states allow pharmacists to refuse to fill a valid prescription.

Doctor Cites Early Treatment as Reason for Success with 6,000 Covid Patients.  A board-certified family medical physician who works with Dr. George Fareed in California's Imperial Valley, Dr. Brian Tyson states that, based on his work with more than 6,000 Covid patients, 70% of all cases nationwide could have been saved using his early-treatment methods.  Dr. Tyson has based his methods, which employ FDA-approved drugs, on fourteen years of experience in the emergency room and another ten years in the ICU.  He also states that he hasn't lost a single patient who has come to him during the first week of having contracted Covid.  [Video clip]

Fluvoxamine data for COVID-19 Treatment.  Early research suggests that fluvoxamine, an FDA approved medication for depression and obsessive compulsive disorder, can be an effective early treatment for COVID-19.  Fluvoxamine, created 37 years ago, is an inexpensive and widely available generic drug.  It's in a class of drugs called Selective Serotonin-Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs).  SSRIs appear to activate a central nervous system protein that plays a role in regulating inflammatory responses.  Small clinical and observational studies show that repurposing fluvoxamine to treat coronavirus prevents some of the most serious complications related to inflammation, and keeps people from hospitalization.

80% of Covid-19 deaths in August were people who had been vaccinated according to Public Health data.  We're living in strange times, and if you believe the Covid-19 vaccination programme is working because the authorities on the television tell you that it is, then you must surely find it extremely strange that the UK is in the middle of a third wave in the middle of summer?  Especially when you consider that in summer 2020 Covid-19 deaths flat-lined to zero even though a Covid-19 injection was not available.  But the strangeness doesn't end there, just take a look at the latest Covid-19 Statistical Report released by Public Health Scotland (PHS) on the 8th September 2021.  The report provides an array on data on testing, quarantining, vaccinations, cases, hospitalisations, and deaths but it doesn't get very interesting until you read Table 15 which covers the number of Covid-19 positive cases by week and vaccination status.

30,305 people died within 21 days of having a Covid-19 Vaccine in England during the first 6 months of 2021 according to ONS data.  Dozens of freedom of information requests have been made to Public Health England (PHE) over the past few months requesting to know how many people have died within 28 days of having a Covid-19 vaccine, but each and every time PHE have claimed they do "not hold the information requested".  [Exhibit omitted for brevity]  It is extremely strange to find that PHE do not hold the information considering their counterpart in Scotland has been able to publish the data on deaths within 28 days of a Covid-19 vaccination.  Public Health Scotland last published the figures on the 23rd June 2021 in their 'Covid-19 Statistical Report' in which they revealed 5,522 people had died within 28 days of having a Covid-19 vaccine between December 8th 2020 and June 11th 2021 in Scotland.

Vaccine Damage And Deaths Are Becoming Widespread.  When one Detroit TV station asked for confirmation bias (people dying of "Covid" from no vaccine), to its surprise the station instead received over 180,000 responses of vaccine injured and dead.  As S.D. Wells reported in Naturalnews.com on Thursday, September 16, 2021, "Spike Protein Syndrome:  WebMD Covid vaccine complaint board plastered with horrific descriptions of sustained critical injuries from toxic clot shots"  Wells reports the following:  "It really doesn't matter which poisonous jab people got, whether it was mRNA or a single protein payload stab, the billions of toxic spike proteins are clogging their blood and vital organs as you read this.  The toxic jabs don't discriminate either, as to your age, race or physical fitness level.  You can be a soldier in top shape, or someone's grandma in the nursing home, and still, the deadly Covid jab will work its nightmares on the human body, including decimation of the vascular and immune systems. Take a look at just a handful of posted complaints, which are all fairly recent, regarding the nightmarish 'side effects' and adverse events going on now, some weeks or months after getting stabbed with billions of toxic spike prions, all just to try to ward off a bad case of the China flu (which none of the inoculations have been proven to do yet."

We Would Get a COVID-19 Vaccine, If...  [#1] We decide that a COVID-19 Vaccine is a net benefit for us (just like we annually decide whether or not to get a Flu Vaccine), as well as it being a scientifically-proven benefit to others that we come in contact with.  [#2] The COVID-19 Vaccine is manufactured and tested in the traditional, scientifically-proven manner (e.g., like the Shingles Vaccine).  [#3] Alternatively, if the COVID-19 Vaccine does not take the traditional route and instead takes an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) path, then the Medical Establishment will fully comply with all federal EUA requirements.  (So far that has not happened with the experimental COVID-19 injections.)  [#4] After we are presented with a legal EUA COVID-19 Vaccine, then the Medical Establishment will fully inform the public: [...]

Army Doctor & Aerospace Medicine Specialist LTC. Theresa Long Calls On Pentagon To Ground ALL Pilots That Have Taken COVID Shots.  Lieutenant Colonel Theresa Long, who is an Army Doctor and Aerospace Medicine Specialist, provided an affidavit in which she recommends the Secretary of Defense to ground all pilots that have received the COVID shots.  The affidavits reads in full below. [...]

CDC Allows Hospitals To Classify Dead Vaxxed People As "Unvaccinated".  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have devised a set of rules pertaining to the classification of infectious disease and death.  These rules simultaneously inflate the number of covid cases in the unvaccinated and allow hospitals to classify dead vaccinated people as "unvaccinated" deaths.  Hospitals and laboratories are required to follow these rules and report official covid-19 data based on these rules.  It appears that these rules were designed in a way to conceal the number of covid cases in the vaccinated and to conceal the number of deaths caused by the covid-19 vaccines.  This medical fraud and morbid treachery allows the CDC to continue on with the false narrative that the nation is suffering from a "pandemic of the unvaccinated."  People who die from the vaccine are used as props to falsely advertise the need for more of these deadly vaccines.

COVID-19 Vaccine Ingredients.  On 20 August 2021 Dr. Robert Young published his team's findings after analysing the four dominant COVID-19 "vaccines" using Phase Contrast Microscopy, Transmission and Scanning Electron Microscopy and Energy-Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy.  Their findings both confirm and expand upon the prior investigations carried out by Dr. Pablo Campra (University of Almeria, Spain), Dr. Juan F. Gastón Añaños (Hospital de Barbastro, Spain), as well as the recent pathology reports from autopsies of vaccinated deceased which were carried out by Prof. Dr. Arne Burkhardt, Prof. Dr. Walter Lang and Prof. Dr. Peter Schirmacher (Germany & Austria).  Many of these substances were observed as being bonded to graphene oxide and metallic nanoparticles.  GO nanoparticles are necrotic, able to pass into or through physiological barriers including (but not limited to) the blood-air barrier, the blood-testis barrier, the blood-brain barrier, and the blood-placenta barrier.  Over a period of several months after intramuscular injection, as much as 75% of the GO nanoparticle "delivery platform", and most of the substances listed below, are transported extensively throughout the bodies of mammals, into the blood, brain and other organs.  Some of the many toxic effects of graphene oxide are myocarditis and blood clotting.  Contamination in vaccines appears to be so common that one might be forgiven for thinking that it is deliberate.

List of retracted coronavirus (COVID-19) papers.  We've been tracking retractions of papers about COVID-19 as part of our database.  Here's a running list, which will be updated as needed.  [Links to 143 papers.]

COVID has Replaced Climate Change as the Religion of the Left.  [Scroll down]  Religion has 7 basic elements.  How are the religions of climate and COVID similar?
Beliefs — the planet and civilization will be destroyed due to man-made global warming or an man-made (increasingly likely) virus.  The left believes this with absolute certainty.  Just speak with your liberal friends or listen to cable news for confirmation. Immediate and severe measures are necessary, or we are facing an extinction event, despite ample evidence to the contrary.
Religious organization — both climate and COVID are organized around fear, large powerful government organizations and the media pushing and amplifying such fear, proposing new bureaucracies, or empowering existing ones to make totalitarian decisions confiscating both wealth and freedom.
Emotions — fear is the primary emotion for both belief systems.  For climate it is fear of starvation and an end to normal life.  For COVID it's fear of death from a virus with a greater than 99 percent survival rate.  Emotional images are used, from a polar bear floating on an ice cap to a crowded emergency room or ICU, even if the photos are staged or have little to do with the issue at hand.
Sacred objects — the climate movement has windmills, solar panels, and electric vehicles as their sacred objects with no acknowledgement that their religious icons are currently doing little to solve the supposed problem they are meant to fix.  In COVID, the sacred objects are the almighty face mask, largely symbolic and previously acknowledged to be useless for a respiratory virus by Dr Fauci and others. [...]

Examining The Democrats' Determination to Vaccinate Us All.  [Scroll down]  None of the problems [Dr. Rochelle Walensky's] booster order is intended to address are the fault of the unvaccinated.  Nevertheless, the Biden administration and its allies in academia and business are aggressively dividing society into competing camps.  One has to wonder what they know, given that the CDC and FDA have been holding the COVID data close to their vest and not disseminating it, which is the usual practice.  And then there's the treatment issue. [...] The possibility of cheap, effective treatments, combined with the virus's low morbidity rate (survival for those under 70 is greater than 99%), means that COVID should pretty much be just a bad flu, although it's in a population that hasn't yet had this particular bad flu before.  Again, mass vaccinations make no sense, as the vaccine will prolong the outbreak as variants are sure to be created.  In light of the above facts, more and more, it looks as if the DNC embraced the virus and is doing its best to keep it circulating through society for purely political reasons.  It was able to get Trump out of the White House, along with election fraud that was made easier because of panicked lockdowns.  Now, the vaccine is the newest weapon in the DNC arsenal.

CNBC Host Grills Fauci on Vaccine 'Breakthrough' Cases.  Dr. Fauci on Friday was grilled on CNBC about so-called Covid 'breakthrough' cases.  "Dr. Fauci, you guys have been pushing the vaccine and I understand why — I'm vaccinated, but I also have Covid and it spread through my entire family in the past few weeks," CNBC host Sara Eisen said from her home office.  She continued, "And I just wonder about the public messaging around vaccinations.  Three vaccinated people got Covid in my house, two unvaccinated children got it.  Are you too casual about the limitations of the vaccine?  Because it does feel to me that breakthroughs are happening, they're happening regularly and we haven't really seen the government pay much attention to them or warn about them!"  Fauci was visibly irritated and tried to interrupt Eisen, but she continued, [...]"

[Fauci says] It's too soon to determine whether families can gather for Christmas.  It's too soon to say whether the pandemic has eased enough for families to gather for Christmas this year, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday [10/3/2021]. Fauci, making the Sunday talk show rounds, said on CBS News' "Face the Nation" that Americans first need to focus on lowering the number of new infections and hospitalizations.  The best way to do that:  Vaccination and booster shots, he said.  "We've just got to concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we're going to do at a particular time," Fauci said.  "Let's focus like a laser on continuing to get those cases down."

The Editor says...
Doctor Fauci is telling you to focus on statistics ("cases") above all else, because statistics are easy to control, and tragic anecdotes are not.

[Fauci says] Immigrants Are Not the Driving Force of Pandemic.  National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases head and chief White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that Republicans need to "face reality" and realize immigrates are not "the driving force" of the coronavirus pandemic.  Anchor Dana Bash said, "Doctor Fauci[,] A new Kaiser Family Foundation poll asked Americans what they thought the major reasons for high coronavirus spread are and the top reasons the Republicans gave was immigrants and tourists bringing COVID-19 into the U.S. Are immigrants a major reason why COVID-19 is spreading in the U.S.?"

J&J's one-shot COVID vaccine is linked to another 'rare' life-threatening blood clotting condition.  Johnson & Johnson's one-shot COVID vaccine has been linked to another blood-clotting condition by EU regulators which they warn could be life-threatening.  The European Medicines Agency (EMA) said the new, possibly life-threatening clotting condition known as venous thromboembolism (VTE) will be included on the J&J product label was separate a previously-linked side effect known as thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS).  VTE typically begins by a clot forming in a vein of a leg, arm or groin, which then travels to the lungs and blocks the blood supply there.

Sen Ron Johnson Drops Bombshell: 63% Of Delta Deaths In The UK Were Fully Vaccinated.  Wisconsin senator Ron Johnson dropped a bombshell on the Senate floor this week when he unveiled official UK government data showing 63% of Delta variant deaths were double vaccinated.  Johnson challenged Joe Biden's claim that this was the pandemic of the unvaccinated.  [Video clip]

Who are the sensible people about COVID?  About half the U.S. population has been 'vaccinated.'  Since the remaining population is unwilling to be jabbed, some say that they should be punished by being required to show a vaccine passport (that they don't have) for entry into a myriad of places. [...] Here's what we do know.
  [#1]   The 'vaccine' is not a vaccine.  Although consumers of the corporate media weren't allowed to see it, this fact has been widely reported in the alternative press.  The technology is based on mRNA, which is a clue to its components.  It's a genetic experiment that has not been tested or vetted.  We are its lab rats.
  [#2]   Will it damage us physically or mentally?  No one can predict what will happen — either now or years from now — to those who allow their genes to be altered with a misnamed 'vaccine' for the sake of a mild disease with vastly inflated, in the U.S., numbers of cases and deaths.
  [#3]   We also know that hundreds of deaths have been observed so far among the newly vaccinated.  Researchers are saying more people may be dying from the 'vaccine' than died from Covid.  And that's just the beginning.  The long-term effects are waiting in the wings.  It has been announced that the U.S. has a higher case rate than any other country.  The corruption in counting is clear for all to see.  Did they think they could keep it a secret?
  [#4]   We know from censored reports that there are effective, nonlethal, remedies, reported by many physicians, including ivermectin, an anti-parasite medication that is also a powerful anti-inflammatory, whose inventors won the Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology, and hydrochloroquine, an old and effective remedy for Covid.  Just ask Donald Trump.

British Rapper Remeece Shows Up Outside Of Schools And Performs His Song 'Dont Tek Di Vaccine'.  The globalist lapdogs all on board with getting every man, woman, child, and baby injected with an experimental drug with horrible side effects and only 36% efficacy are having a meltdown over a rapper named Remeece and his new track, "Don't Tek Di Vaccine."  The rapper and his group, Footsoldiers4Freedom, have shown up outside at least four schools in London, Manchester, and Bolton in recent weeks.  The group hands out flyers with the child protection charity's logo telling pupils to 'discard your mask', while blasting songs with lyrics such as 'children, children, don't take the vaccine' through loudspeakers.  [Video clip]

Why Is Info on COVID and Vitamin D Deficiency Suppressed?  Many years of research have demonstrated the multiple benefits of vitamin D to your health.  These benefits include helping to build healthy bones and teeth, supporting lung and cardiovascular function, influencing genetic expression, supporting brain and nervous system health, and regulating insulin levels.  During 2020, scientists also discovered that the benefits of vitamin D for upper respiratory infections also includes protection against COVID-19.  In 2021, two new studies confirmed what many researchers had already determined:  There is an association between vitamin D deficiency and "the risk of being infected with COVID-19, severity of the disease and risk of dying from it."  However, despite a known and safe side effect profile, benefits to patients with COVID-19 and the relative ease of acquiring the low-cost supplement, health "experts" have continued to suppress information that could very well save many lives.

Food for thought.  The strategies of Climate Change compared to Covid-19

Fauci isn't sure that you can gather for Christmas, but is sure that you must give up your individual rights.  The highest paid bureaucrat in the entire federal government went on Face the Nation yesterday [10/3/2021] and let his mask slip.  He might as well have put on a Grinch costume when he responded to a question from host Margaret Brennan on whether or not people could gather for Christmas this year and answered that it is too early to tell:  [Tweet with video clip]  Fauci wasn't questioned about why wealthy and sophisticated countries like Norway and Japan are returning to normal life, joining Sweden, which has never engaged in the historically unprecedented move of quarantining healthy people, bit the sick.  Instead, Fauci wants to focus on "cases" — which means people testing positive for Covid, not people actually requiring treatment.

Rack up another win for Big Pharma.  Big Pharma is celebrating.  Merck has released "phenomenal" test results for its experimental pill for treating COVID. The drug is said to greatly reduce the risk of hospitalization and death from the Wuhan virus.  In this regard, Merck has beaten Pfizer, which is also deep in developing a medicine to treat COVID. And to be perfectly clear, both the Merck and Pfizer drugs are not intended to prevent COVID. They treat it. [...] Here's a cynic's view of the situation.  The reason for the jihad against Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine was not the health of the public.  It's that both these drugs are low-cost generics.  Their use would not garner large profits for Big Pharma.  But the new Merck and Pfizer drug will surely cost a pretty penny.  Why?  It's to capture their R&D costs which the accountants at Big Pharma are well experienced in bloating.  And even if some decree by one of the alphabet health agencies in Washington says the Merck and Pfizer drugs should be made available to the public at low cost or for free, the true cost will be eventually be absorbed by Uncle Sam, i.e., the taxpayer.

Fauci on Vax Mandates:  "There Comes a Time When You Have to Give Up What You Consider Your Individual Right of Making Your Own Decision".  Dr. Fauci on Friday [10/1/2021] delivered a virtual lecture to Canadians at McGill University titled "Covid-19: Lessons Learned and Remaining Challenges."  Fauci, an unelected bureaucrat, had a message to Canadians who oppose authoritarian vaxx mandates:  You have no right to make your own decision about what goes into your body.  "I think what people have to appreciate is that indeed you do have personal liberties for yourself, and you should be in control of them," Fauci said before telling people they have to take the jab for the greater good of society.  "But," Fauci said, "you are a member of society and as a member of society, reaping all the benefits of being a member of society, you have a responsibility to society, and I think each of us, particularly in the context of a pandemic that's killing millions of people, you have got to look at it and say there comes a time when you do have to give up what you consider your individual right of making your own decision for the greater good of society."  Covid vaccines do not prevent the spread of the China virus, according to CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, so the mandates are purely about control.

A eulogy is not an affidavit.
Twitter Slammed for Fact-Checking Obituary of Woman Whose Death Has Been Linked to COVID Vaccine.  Twitter fact-checked an obituary of a young mother whose death is being attributed to a blood disorder induced by COVID-19, prompting backlash from Republican lawmakers and members of conservative media.  The social media giant put a since-removed "misleading" label on a tweet that included a link to the obituary along with the caption:  "Seattle, WA — Jessica Berg Wilson, an 'exceptionally healthy and vibrant 37-year-old young mother with no underlying health conditions,' passed away from COVID Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia.  She did not want to get vaccinated."  Twitter's "misleading" label also included information on "why health officials consider COVID-19 vaccines safe for most people."  The obituary posted to Oregon Live asserts that Wilson died last month "from COVID-19 Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT)," a blood-clotting syndrome.

Nearly 3,700 substitute teachers needed in NYC ahead of vaccine deadline.  The city Department of Education is looking to plug nearly 3,700 openings for substitute teachers as the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for public school staffers goes into effect Monday [10/4/2021], The [New York] Post has learned.  The 3,659 vacancies amount to an average of about two subs per each of the system's roughly 1,800 schools — though the needs at some schools, including in Brooklyn and Queens, are far greater, according to an email sent Saturday and obtained by The Post.  The starting dates for the fill-in gigs range from Monday to May 2022, though the bulk of the roles begin in October, according to the email sent to the pool of public school substitute teachers.

Fauci: 'Precious few' religions oppose vaccines.  Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday [10/3/2021] it is exceedingly rare for a major religion to oppose vaccines but recognized it will be hard to referee situations in which workers say their faith makes it impossible for them to get the COVID-19 shots.  "We looked at this years ago when people were claiming religious exemptions to avoid getting measles vaccines," Dr. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CNN's "State of the Union."  "There are precious few religions that actually say you cannot do that."  Many employers that are imposing vaccine mandates offer medical exemptions in order to satisfy federal laws, but religious exemptions are a thornier issue.  Some people say their body is a "temple" or cite Bible verses in pursuit of religious exemptions, though experts say organized religions have few formal objections to the vaccines.

Autopsies relocated as medical examiner goes unvaccinated.  An upstate New York county is being forced to send human bodies to a hospital 50 miles away for autopsies because its prominent medical examiner has not been vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to county officials.  Rensselaer County moved autopsies on Friday [10/1/2021] to Glens Falls Hospital from Albany Medical Center Hospital, which requires everyone who works there to be vaccinated, Richard Crist, the county's director of operations, told the Times Union.  The county's medical examiner, Dr. Michael Sikirica, had been performing the county's autopsies at the Albany hospital.  Although Sikirica does not work at that hospital, all doctors who provide services there must be vaccinated, said Matt Markham, a hospital spokesperson.

The Editor says...
I'm no doctor, but I don't think people who are undergoing autopsies are susceptible to Covis-19.

Students sue St. John's University over vaccine mandate, citing 'aborted fetal tissue' testing.  A group of students at St. John's University in New York is suing the Catholic school over its vaccine mandate, claiming the requirement violates their right to their religious beliefs.  The 17 plaintiffs say in their suit that they oppose abortion — and therefore do not want to take any of the three federally approved COVID-19 vaccines because the shots were tested using "aborted fetal tissue or human embryonic stem-cell derivation."  "As a devout Roman Catholic, I believe life is precious.  In the Ten Commandments, it says, `Thou Shall Not Kill,'" said plaintiff Kimberly Vineski, a 19-year-old, second-year pharmacy student from Glendale, LI, to The [New York] Post, referring to abortion.  St. John's says in court papers that it won't consider an exemption for the plaintiffs because there are questions about "the genuineness of their purported religious beliefs."

Sen. Ron Johnson: There is not an FDA approved COVID vaccine in the US.  Senator Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., claimed that the U.S. still doesn't have an FDA-approved vaccine as he exposed what was really approved by the government agency on "Fox News Primetime."  ["]We do not have an FDA-approved vaccine being administered in the U.S.  The FDA played a bait and switch.  They approved the Comirnaty version of Pfizer drugs.  It's not available in the U.S.  They even admit it.  I sent them a letter three days later going 'What are you doing?'  What they did is they extended the emergency use authorization for the Pfizer drug vaccine that's available in the U.S., here that's more than 30 days later, they haven't asked that very simple question.  If you're saying that the Pfizer drug is the same as the Comirnaty, why didn't you provide FDA approval on that?

Attorney Thomas Renz Releases Medicare and Pfizer Whistleblower Data — Vaccine Related Injuries and Deaths [are] Far More Widespread Than Reported.  Thanks to a Whistleblower that came forth to Attorney Thomas Renz, the public is now seeing, for the first time ever, hard data from the largest database available in the U.S. to study the COVID-19 impact including deaths & injuries; The CMS Medicare Tracking System.  The Total number of American Citizens that died within 14 days of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine is 48,465 according to hard data revealed in the Medicare Tracking System.  Attorney Renz is also in possession of Remdesivir death data from the Medicare Tracking System that has been withheld by the government from our citizens.  The Remdesivir data reveals of the 7,960 beneficiaries prescribed Remdesivir for Covid-19, 2,058 died.  That is 25.9%.

American Airlines, Alaska Airlines and JetBlue will require all staff to get the COVID-19 vaccine under Biden's mandate for 'government contractors'.  American Airlines, Alaska Airlines and JetBlue are joining United Airlines in requiring employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19, as the Biden administration steps up pressure on major US carriers to mandate the shots.  The airlines provide special flights, cargo hauling and other services for the government.  The companies say that makes them government contractors who are covered by President Joe Biden's order directing contractors to require employees to be vaccinated.  American Airlines CEO Doug Parker told his more than 100,000 employees late Friday that the airline is still working on details, but 'it is clear that team members who choose to remain unvaccinated will not be able to work at American Airlines.'

Why "experts say" is a red flag when it comes to everything COVID.  If you're reading a newspaper about Covid, and you're wondering if there is any science behind the claims that are being made, then just keep your eyes open for the words "experts say," and you'll know right then it's [an echo chamber] of one clown referencing another clown, and NONE of it is evidence-based.  None. [...] It's not "normal" to wear a mask that obstructs your breathing all day.  It's not normal to alter how your immune system functions by tricking your cells into producing spike proteins that mimic virus pathogens, thus creating a toxin-producing factory (mRNA technology) in your body that you can never regulate or turn off.  It's also not normal for humans to live in isolation, kill ALL bacteria around them with disinfectants, and then tell everyone, including healthy adults and all children, they must get gene therapy injections every 3 months for the rest of their lives in order to 'have rights' and to 'survive.'

Dangerous mistake: 4-year-old [was] accidentally given COVID-19 vaccine instead of flu shot.  A Maryland pharmacy accidentally injected a 4-year-old girl with a COVID-19 vaccine instead of the flu shot she was scheduled to receive.  On September 18, Victoria Olivier brought her daughter Colette to a Walgreens in the Baltimore area for their family's seasonal flu shot.  Ahead of the appointment, her mother struck a deal with her that she would receive a treat if she cooperated, so she eagerly volunteered when the pharmacist asked who in their family wanted to go first.  However, the mood quickly changed when the pharmacist realized that she had accidentally given the young girl a dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine instead of the flu shot.  The vaccine has not been authorized for children younger than 12.

Gov. Newsom mandates shots for ALL California students from 7th to 12th grade - but exempts staff.  Governor Gavin Newsom has been condemned for his 'wrong and cowardly' mandate which demands all California students from 7th to 12th grade get the COVID-19 vaccine but does not require their teachers to get the shot.  Social media erupted in outrage Friday night as people pointed out the alarming difference between the rules for children and staff, with many accusing the governor of being influenced by the powerful teachers' unions.  'Kids must get vaccine, but teacher don't have to.  The lesson?  Kids need a better union,' one person tweeted.

Now There are Whispers in D.C. That Biden is About to Issue Vaccine Passport Mandate for Interstate Travel.  The Biden administration is poised to make its next unconstitutional power grab in the former of a 'vaccine mandate' for interstate travel within the United States, according to reports on Capitol Hill.  Congressional Republican lawmakers are attempting to get ahead of the forthcoming expected decree by introducing legislation to block an executive order or directive.  "In a Wednesday speech on the Senate floor, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), joined by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), introduced legislation that would bar the Biden administration from implementing vaccine passports requirements for interstate travel," the Epoch Times reported.

Sen. Rick Scott Introduces Bill to Ban Vax Passports for Interstate Travel.  In a Wednesday [9/29/2021] speech on the Senate floor, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), joined by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), introduced legislation that would bar the Biden administration from implementing vaccine passports requirements for interstate travel.  Scott began by praising the Trump administration for its quick development of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccine, which he noted has been very successful.  But, he continued, "government should not issue [mandates]" as President Joe Biden has done.  As localities and states join the federal government in issuing various vaccine mandates and vaccine passport requirements, Scott said that "Americans are sick and tired of the government telling them what to do.  And the American people are more than capable of making the right decision to protect them, their family, and their neighbors."

Rand Paul grills Biden health secretary on natural immunity: 'You are the one ignoring the science'.  Republican Senator Rand Paul sharply criticized the Biden administration's push for vaccination and its refusal to acknowledge natural immunity during a hearing on Thursday [9/30/2021].  "Mr. Becerra, are you familiar with an Israeli study that had 2.5 million patients and found that the vaccinated group was actually seven times more likely to get infected with COVID than the people who had gotten COVID naturally," Paul asked Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Xavier Becerra.  Becerra, who is tasked with overseeing the public health infrastructure for the country, said he is not familiar with the study.  "I think you might want to be if you're going to travel the country insulting the millions of Americans, including NBA star Jonathan Isaac, who have had COVID, recovered, look at a study with 2.5 million people, and say, well, you know what, I should make the decision.  Instead, you've called Jonathan Isaac and others, myself included, 'flat earthers,'" Paul said.

Radio Host Confronts Fauci, Demands He Resign.  Radio host Hugh Hewitt grilled COVID czar Anthony Fauci on Wednesday, asserting that Americans no longer believe the fear-mongering doctor due to his routine contradictions and absurd claims, Fox News reported.  Hewitt began the interview by telling Dr. Fauci that he and other Americans believe that Fauci has caused great harm to the nation.  He then asked whether Fauci would step down if this were true.  "I have lost confidence in the CDC and the FDA and I actually believe a lot of Americans — a significant part of America — now have lost confidence in you, Dr. Fauci," Hewitt began.  "Is there a point where you will say, 'I do more harm than good because people don't listen to me anymore,' and step aside?"  Fauci — who has made a career out of medical "crises" — appeared baffled by Hewitt's suggestion that anybody could doubt him.  He claimed that he would not consider stepping down under any circumstances.  "No.  Absolutely, unequivocally no, Hugh.  Sorry," Fauci replied.

Medical Tyranny Continues In Both Hemispheres.  Throughout the Anglosphere medical tyranny has continued to show no signs of slowing down, with Canada's Rebel News recently flying out to Australia to do some investigation.  Footage in the video showed Australian police swarming a shopping center, with large groups on foot as well as horses, helicopters, and even drones on patrol to catch citizens who disobey any of the country's draconian mandates.  The reporter covering the segment interviewed various Australian citizens, including a woman fired for her refusal to take the COVID-19 shot after a long career of nursing, a man who said it remains illegal to take his children to the playground, and a lady who was fined and had her phone taken away for a "breach of the public health order" after she shopped at a local grocery store.  The woman claimed she had no idea how she had violated the mandate.

Former Pfizer employee flags FDA study, warns that Pfizer vaccine increases COVID by over 300%.  The fraudulence of covid-19 vaccines is on full display, and the evidence is sitting right out in the open.  The full FDA approval for Pfizer's COMIRNATY vaccine contained clinical proof that the inoculation increases COVID infection by over 300 percent!  A former Pfizer employee named Karen Kingston is blowing the whistle on her former employer.  Kingston is currently a pharmaceutical marketing expert and biotech analyst.  When she scrutinized the full FDA approval for COMIRNATY, she found blatant fraud in Pfizer's clinical studies.

Colorado County Is 99.9% Vaxxed, But Residents [are] Still Getting COVID.  San Juan County, Colorado, can boast that 99.9% of its eligible population has received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, putting it in the top 10 counties in the nation, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  If vaccines were the singular armor against COVID's spread, then on paper, San Juan County, with its 730 or so residents on file, would be one of the most bulletproof places in the nation.  Yet the past few months have shown the complexity of this phase of the pandemic.  Even in an extremely vaccinated place, the shots alone aren't enough because geographic boundaries are porous, vaccine effectiveness may be waning over time and the delta variant is highly contagious.  Infectious-disease experts say masks are still necessary to control the spread of the virus.

Woman Injured by COVID Vaccine Pleads With Health Agencies for Help, as Local News Agency Kills Story After Pressure From Pfizer.  Kristi Dobbs, a 40-year-old dental hygienist from Missouri, said she can no longer work after being injured by Pfizer's COVID vaccine.  She has spent the past nine months pleading with U.S. health agencies to research the neurological injuries she and others are experiencing in hopes of finding a treatment.  Since getting the vaccine, Dobbs has seen 16 different medical providers.  She's been on 22 different medications to address more than 20 different symptoms — none of which she had prior to getting the vaccine.  Dobbs said she and others who developed neurological injuries after getting a COVID vaccine shared their experiences with a reporter, in hope of raising awareness about their experiences.  But the story never ran because, according to the reporter, a "higher up" at Pfizer pressured the news agency to drop it.

Prominent doctor and researcher calls for COVID-19 vaccines to be pulled from the market.  A prominent researcher and physician recently gave a 90-minute presentation outlining his case for why the experimental COVID-19 vaccines should be pulled from the market.  Dr. Peter McCullough said, among other concerns, that most of the deaths that have been attributed to COVID-19 can be prevented using early treatments that have thus far been suppressed by policymakers.  Dr. McCullough is the Editor-in-Chief of two medical journals in addition to working as a practicing cardiologist, internist and epidemiologist. [...] Last November, Dr. McCullough testified to the U.S. Senate against what he said was the politicization of health care during the COVID pandemic by the federal government by blocking the availability of effective and cheap treatments such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.  One slide in his August 20 presentation read:  "COVID-19 genetic vaccines have an unfavorable safety profile and are not clinically effective, thus they cannot be generally supported in clinical practice at this time."

How globalists convinced billions of people to exterminate themselves with biological weapons presented as "vaccines".  In a sane world where globalists weren't trying to exterminate the human race, ivermectin would be celebrated as a safe, effective, low-cost medical intervention.  Vitamin D would be recommended for nearly everyone.  Fauci and the other bioweapons criminals would be indicted and charged with crimes against humanity.  And the science journals wouldn't be run by communist China.  But our world is not sane.  It is ruled by a completely insane globalist death cult that seeks the total destruction of the human race.  That's why everything you're seeing unfold makes no sense unless you realize the goal really is depopulation / genocide against humanity.  In that context, suddenly it all makes sense:  The gain-of-function research, the media's psychological operations, the hospitals faking covid numbers to "scare" the public, the science journals scheming to attack ivermectin and hide the origins of the spike protein, the incessant pushing of covid vaccine mandates, the economic lockdowns that destroy lives, etc.  Once you understand that the goal is total death and destruction, suddenly it all makes sense.  In Scotland, 80% of the covid deaths are now occurring among the vaccinated.  And in high vaccination rate countries like Israel and Singapore, hospitalizations and deaths are skyrocketing.

Dianne Feinstein Introduces Bill to BAN Unvaccinated From Flying Domestically.  Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein has introduced a new bill that would prevent unvaccinated Americans from flying domestically unless they agree to take the shot or provide an expensive negative COVID test.  Feinstein's draconian "US Air Travel Public Safety Act" would "require the Department of Health and Human Services and the Federal Aviation Administration to develop standards for airlines to verify that a person has either been vaccinated, tested negative for COVID-19 or has fully recovered from a coronavirus infection to be able to fly."  Feinstein's office released a statement that declared "Ensuring that air travelers protect themselves and their destination communities from this disease is critical to prevent the next surge, particularly if we confront new, more virulent variants of COVID-19."

Official ONS Data:  Deaths Among Teenagers Have Increased by 47% in the UK Since They Started Getting the Covid-19 Vaccine.  An investigation of official ONS and NHS data has revealed that since the Covid-19 vaccine began to be rolled-out to teenagers there has been a 47% rise in the number of deaths due to all-causes among the age group.  The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) submitted an independent report to the UK Government on July 15th 2021, in which they advised that children and young people aged 12 years and over with specific underlying health conditions should be offered Covid-19 vaccination.

Australian Police Commissioner Refuses to Enforce Vaccine Passport Mandate.  The Police Commissioner of New South Wales has refused to enforce the state's vaccine passport mandate, revealing that officers will not be checking people's vaccination status in restaurants, clubs or bars.  The government is preparing to pass a mandate that will ban all unvaccinated people from gaining entry to numerous venues up until at least December 1st in a repeat of the segregation scheme that has been adopted in numerous western countries.  However, after questions began to swirl about whether businesses would be forced to impose the measures on customers, NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller made it clear that his officers wouldn't be on patrol.

'Quarantine Facilities' Being Prepared For Americans 'Unable To Isolate at Home'.  The facilities are reportedly going to be used to house Americans who are unable to quarantine at home but it is prompting fears that the program could eventually be used to forcibly detain people.  The positions listed as 'Isolation & Quarantine Team Consultants' offer "continuous" employment with a salary of up to $4286 dollars a month.  Summit News reports:  The facility is located "within a motel in Lewis County" and employees will be tasked with providing for COVID infectees "transportation to and from the facility in vans that have been altered to separate air flow to protect the driver."

School sees COVID cases decline after court said it can't require masks.  After a judge told a school district it couldn't require masks for students without a quarantine order, the district reported fewer COVID-19 cases, but it has faced other consequences.  It comes as a member of the Illinois Legislature's Joint Committee on Administrative Rules said there is further evidence the Illinois State Board of Education can't revoke a public or private school's recognition status for failing to follow the governor's mask mandate.  Attorney Thomas DeVore said since securing a temporary restraining order enjoining the Hillsboro school district from mandating masks on children on Sept. 17, cases have gone down.

21-Yr-Old Med Student Found Dead In His Room One Day After Getting Johnson & Johnson COVID Vaccine; Cause of Death Is Not Yet Determined.  The safety of Johnson & Johnson's COVID vaccines is once again being called into question, and not just by some "flat-earthers" or conspiracy theorists, but by J & J officials in the US, the health ministry in Slovenia, and now, it's being reported that the European Union's drug regulator has identified a possible link between rare cases of blood clotting in deep veins with J & J's COVID-19 vaccine.  The European Union's drug regulator on Friday [10/1/2021] identified a possible link between rare cases of blood clotting in deep veins with Johnson & Johnson's Covid-19 vaccine and recommended the condition be listed as a side-effect of the shot.

Togo bishops conference slams forced vaccination.  Togo is facing stringent new COVID-19 restrictions since the sanitary state of emergency was extended for one year on September 9 after an alleged increase in SARS-CoV-2 "cases" putting a strain on hospitals.  As a result, on September 17, places of worship, culture and leisure as well as bars and restaurants were closed, public gatherings were banned for one month, and a sanitary pass was introduced that requires proof of at least one dose of the COVID vaccine in order to gain access to all public service buildings.  The overwhelming majority of the 8.5 million inhabitants of the small West African state have not received the vaccine to date:  1 million doses have been distributed and a scant 5 percent of the total population has received "complete" vaccination, according to the Financial Times.  Local authorities say 9 percent of adults received two doses, and 13 percent received one dose.

Felicity Jackson: 29-year-old British model suffering continual convulsions, seizures after second Pfizer mRNA injection.  A 29-year-old British model is now unable to work after fulfilling mandates to save her job.  Ms. Felicity Jackson received her first Pfizer mRNA injection sometime in June, according to her Instagram page.  She felt general malaise that entire week.  Ms. Jackson suffered a "seizure-type fit" that week as well.  She called 111 [sic] (the British 911) the morning after the seizure.  Incredibly, medical personnel told her that the seizure was "nothing to worry about."  Her regular doctor also dismissed the malaise and seizure, telling Ms. Jackson that her reaction to the first mRNA injection doesn't qualify her for an exemption from the second injection.

Rand Paul Lays Into HHS Sec.  Becerra for Failing to Acknowledge COVID Natural Immunity.  GOP Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky took Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra to task on Thursday for failing to take into account the efficacy of natural immunity among those who have not received the COVID-19 vaccine.  Paul asked Becerra during a Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing if he had read an Israeli study conducted in the spring involving 2.5 million patients that found that the vaccinated were "seven times" more likely to contract the coronavirus than those who had already recovered from the illness.  In fact, the researchers found less than a tenth of one percent of those who recovered from COVID were reinfected.

Fully Vaccinated Harvard Business School Suspends Most Classes For Covid Outbreak.  Harvard Business School is switching to remote learning through October 3 to try to suppress the virus, which is mostly infecting the university's fully vaccinated graduate students.  Despite a close to 100% vaccination rate on campus, the graduate school said dozens of breakthrough infections required a temporary return to remote learning.  The university's student population is 95% vaccinated and 96% of faculty and staff are fully immunized, according to the school.  That is nearing a 100% vaccination rate.  But those nutty people who continue to refuse the "vaccine" are somehow the problem and not supposed to ask any questions about the "vaccine."

Judge upholds Univ. of California vaccine mandate against a professor who cited natural immunity.  A federal judge upheld the University of California's decision to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine instead of siding with a professor who said he had natural immunity and didn't need the shots.  It's believed to be the first ruling of its kind as GOP lawmakers and others urge governments and employers to create exemptions for persons who recovered from COVID-19 and demonstrate antibody levels.  U.S. District Judge James Selna in Santa Ana, California, said Thursday the university acted rationally in imposing a mandate designed to protect public health while failing to provide an exemption for those with natural immunity.

The Immoral Difference Between Canadian And Mexican Border Crossings.  Until August of 2021, Canada's border was shut down entirely to Americans crossing by land.  This is not hyperbole — it was fully closed.  Canada got to say no to us and we gladly accepted their sovereign right.  I have two compatriot acquaintances who are married to Canadian women, and they were not even allowed to visit. [...] One of these people did not see his wife for a full year because of enacted Covid policies.  Since the "reopening" of the border, here are a few of the demands being placed on American vacationers:
  •   Full vaccinated (full vaccination occurs after 14 days of the (so far) second dose.
  •   Negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours
  •   The downloading of a passport where all of this (and presumably more) information is stored. This is called the ArriveCAN.
  •   A forceful reminder that all Covid measures be obeyed, including masking in all public places and carrying the Covid passport.
Failure to abide results in refusal of entry.

Australians Protest in Melbourne After New Sweeping Vaccine Mandate Announced.  Australians took to the streets for another protest in Melbourne in the state of Victoria on Saturday after the government announced a sweeping COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all "authorised workers."  Victorian residents took to the streets and congregated in a group that marched along Southbank Boulevard and the track around Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens.  Participants carried a large white banner with the word "Freedom" and voiced their dissent against vaccine mandates, lockdowns, and the current state government.  A video from citizen journalist Rukshan Fernando showed the protesters marching peacefully and yelling slogans such as "my body my choice" and "freedom! ... now!"  Two black umbrellas can be seen with the words, "coercion is not consent," and "sack Dan the dictator."

More US Airlines Impose Vaccine Mandates:  American, Alaska, JetBlue.  More U.S. air carriers — American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and JetBlue — have announced they will be requiring employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.  The move comes as the Biden administration has ramped up pressure on airlines to require vaccines as part of a broader strategy to boost inoculation rates in the country.  President Joe Biden signed an executive order last month requiring federal contractors to mandate shots for employees, with the White House later setting a Dec. 8 deadline for getting the vaccine.  The airlines say they provide special flights and other services for the government and so fall under Biden's mandate.  "While we are still working through the details of the federal requirements, it is clear that team members who choose to remain unvaccinated will not be able to work at American Airlines," Doug Parker, American Airlines chief executive, told employees in an Oct. 1 memo.

California pushes 1st US vaccine mandate for schoolchildren.  California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday announced the nation's first coronavirus vaccination mandate for schoolchildren, requiring that all elementary through high school students get the shots once the vaccine gains final approval from the U.S. government for different age groups.  The government has fully approved the COVID-19 vaccine for those 16 and over but only granted an emergency authorization for anyone 12 to 15.  Once federal regulators fully approve it for that group, the state will require students in seventh through 12th grades to get vaccinated in both public and private schools.  Newsom said he expects that requirement to be in place by July 1.

Orwell and the Woke.  What were we to make of multimillionaire Barack Obama's 60th birthday bash at his Martha's Vineyard estate, and the throng of the woke wealthy and their masked helot attendants?  Was socialist Representative Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) suffering for the people when she wore a designer dress to the more than $30,000-a-ticket Met gala?  Her entourage needs were certainly well-attended to by masked Morlock servants.  Did the leftist celebrities at the recent Emmy awards gather to discuss opening Malibu beaches to the homeless when the (unmasked) stars virtue-signaled their wokeness?  For answers about these hypocritical wokists, always turn first to George Orwell.

Vaccine Mandate Will Cost Us All.  Problems inherent in OSHA's forthcoming new mandatory co-vax standards will be legion.  How do we know that?  The Occupational Safety and Health Act covers most private sector employers and employees and is mirrored in the federal workplace but exempts state and local governmental workers.  That's small potatoes, though, as every state has adopted OSHA standards or has an OSHA-approved state plan.  Most every worker in the country is protected from identified unsafe workplace hazards, practices, and conditions.  The new mandate will only cover those employers with 100 or more employees, leaving out 98.1% of all companies in the US.  But as Newsweek so helpfully points out, the 1.9% of companies covered under the mandate employ one-third of America's workforce.  If the mandate really is about protecting workers, yet it ignores two-thirds of the workforce, equal protection seems to have gone out the window here.

Supreme Court rejects NYC teachers' request to stop Mayor Bill de Blasio's vaccine mandate.  The Supreme Court has denied a challenge from New York City public school teachers to block Mayor Bill de Blasio's COVID-19 vaccine mandate from going into effect today [10/1/2021].  US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor ruled in favor of the city Friday — allowing the mandate to go ahead and paving the way for up to 14,800 unvaccinated school employees to be out of work come Monday.  A group of four teachers had sent an emergency petition to Sotomayor Thursday asking her to halt the mandate.

We Don't Care That A Vaxxed Brett Kavanaugh Has COVID, Because COVID Is No Longer News.  Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh reportedly tested positive for COVID, raising the very important question:  WHO CARES?!  It apparently has to be said that testing positive for COVID is not in itself newsworthy.  In particular if the person has received a vaccine, which Kavanaugh purportedly has.  As of Friday, he hasn't been hospitalized.  He's not even showing any symptoms, according to a spokeswoman for the court.  So, again, who cares?  Wishing him the best, but positive cases shouldn't be of any particular interest to anyone. [...] This has been the case for a very long time.  The totals of deaths and new infections are meaningless anymore.

It's not Catholic to say getting the COVID shot is 'gift of love'.  In her National Catholic Reporter article "Catholics seeking 'religious' exemptions from vaccines must follow true church teaching on conscience," M. Therese Lysaught, a professor of bioethics and a corresponding member of the Pontifical Academy for Life, maintains that Catholics in good conscience MUST receive a COVID-19 vaccine.  She provides a template for a "dialogue" with someone asking for an exemption.  From the get go, she makes it clear that those who refuse to get vaccinated are egocentric, deficient in their understanding of what the healing ministry of Jesus requires, not committed to unity or the common good, without concern for the poor and vulnerable, and lacking in charity.  What a beginning!  Lysaught doesn't exactly exhibit the charitable practice of assuming the best motives on the part of one's "dialogue" partner.  Indeed, neither in the template nor in the essay written to accompany the document does Lysaught show the slightest interest in why Catholics or others might resist taking a COVID-19 vaccine.  Clearly, they are just selfish dunderheads who don't understand what is manifestly true for those in the know.

Australian Witch Who's Been Stomping On Freedom's Neck Just Resigned After Being Revealed As A Corrupt Liar.  NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has resigned from her role as Premier, and from Parliament, amid a probe by the state's anti-corruption watchdog.  The Independent Commission Against Corruption on Friday [10/1/2021] announced it would investigate Berejiklian for potentially breaching public trust regarding her relationship with former MP Daryl Maguire.  Berejiklian says she was on Thursday night informed ICAC would be issuing a public statement, announcing the investigation, and said she had "no option" but to resign.  [Video clip]

Polish Priest Who Refused To Shut Down His Church During Lockdowns In Canada Is Arrested At Airport.  A Calgary pastor known for opposing and violating public health measures was arrested upon his return to the city for outstanding warrants related to his COVID-19 defiance.  Calgary police confirmed Artur Pawlowski was apprehended by Canadian Border Service Agents on two outstanding warrants issued by local law enforcement for disobeying a court order in June and failing to wear a mask in March.  [Video clip]

Are you pro-choice or pro-life...on vaccines?  The two terms "pro-choice" and "pro-life" have been used in the abortion debate for many years.  But when the two terms are applied to the vaccine controversy gripping the entire world, they come down on the same side — vaccine mandates are anti-choice and anti-life.  If women expect the right to control their own bodies and make their own medical choices in consultation with their families, religious leaders, and doctors, why would a decision whether or not to take a vaccine be at all different?  Do we really think it is acceptable to force someone to take an injection against his will?  Will teams of "vaccine police" be dispatched to neighborhoods to hold people to the ground and give them shots?  That would be horrific, but the pressure for non-vaxxed people to get the shot has reached an insane level.  Isn't firing someone who won't take the shot almost identical to dispatching vaccine police?

Vaccinated Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh tests positive for COVID.  The Supreme Court revealed Friday that Justice Brett Kavanaugh tested positive for Covid-19 on Thursday night [9/30/2021].  The justice, 56, has been fully vaccinated against the virus, as have all other members of the high court.  He is currently experiencing no symptoms and his wife and family have tested negative.  The court said Kavanaugh had tested negative as recently as Monday morning.

Merck to seek emergency US approval of oral COVID treatment.  Pharmaceutical giant Merck and its partner Ridgeback Biotherapeutics announced Friday that it plans to apply for emergency approval of its oral antiviral treatment for COVID-19 after the experimental drug showed "compelling results" in clinical trials.  The pill, called molnupiravir, cut the risk of hospitalization or death in patients with mild to moderate COVID-19 by about 50 percent in a late-stage trial, the companies said.  After discussions with both an independent data committee and staff from the US Food and Drug Administration, the companies decided to halt enrollment in its late-stage trial because of the positive results, Friday's [10/1/2021] announcement said.  If the FDA grants Merck an emergency use authorization for the pill, it would be the first oral antiviral for COVID-19.

Health Care Giant Northwell Denies Some Benefits to Workers Fired Over Vaccine Mandate.  Northwell Health, the largest health care provider in New York state, is denying some benefits to employees it's firing because they refuse to comply with the state's COVID-19 vaccination mandate for health care workers.  Those terminated lose all employer contributions to their retirement plans for this year unless they're older than 62.  They are also denied payouts of any of their remaining paid time off (PTO), according to a FAQ sheet recently emailed to the workers and obtained by The Epoch Times.

Leftist policies are wrecking global supply chains and triggering shortages and looming hyperinflation.  There are multiple sources of the troubles bedeviling the international division of labor, but they all have one thing in common: bad government policies pushed by progressives.  Start with COVID, a highly communicable virus that can be lethal if left untreated, especially in people with comorbidities including obesity and diabetes.  Governments around the world for the first time in human history decided to quarantine the healthy, not the sick, and went into "lockdowns" for a disease that has a 99.5% recovery rate is most dangerous to an identifiable subset of their populations:  the elderly, the obese, and the already ill.  Those lockdowns constricted production, and the resulting unemployment temporarily deferred demand for many goods, including durables like cars and home appliances.  In the United States, tax-free payments were offered to unemployed people that were more lucrative than the taxable wages they might receive if they returned to work, resulting in a predictable artificial labor shortage, further crimping the manufacture and distribution of many goods.  Many of the same factors were at work internationally.

Rebel News in Victoria Hold Police Accountable, and The Police Do Not Like It.  The Police in/around Melbourne Australia (State of Victoria) are becoming very uncomfortable that people are recording their beatings and brutality and posting them on social media.  In an effort to stop media reporting on the continued police actions, law enforcement is now attempting to block media from being present.  Kudos to Avi Yemini and Rebel News for refusing to acquiesce to the police thug tactics.  Watch this insufferable exhibition of lawless cops with guns and badges attempting to intimidate Rebel News.  [Video clip]

To survive, red states must now nullify the federal government and declare themselves "health freedom zones".  With illegitimate occupier-in-chief Joe Biden waging outright war and economic terrorism against red states, the leaders of those red states must now nullify federal government overreach in order to prevent their own citizens from being mass murdered by D.C. swamp policies that are intentionally designed to achieve depopulation.  Some of the ways the Biden regime is waging war on red states include:
  •   Economic terrorism:  Unleashing OSHA to destroy all businesses that won't enforce vaccine mandates by levying fines of $70,000 per day or even higher.
  •   Engineered medicine shortages:  Biden recently announced restrictions on shipping monoclonal antibodies to red states in order to maximize covid fatalities in those states.
  •   Vaccine mandates:  Through vaccine mandates, Biden is committing medical genocide against every American, working to achieve a mass die-off that will leave states in a worsening economic crisis (and humanitarian crisis) as the deaths unfold.
  •   Outlawing of medicine that works:  Notice how the D.C. swamp has attacked ivermectin and made sure no hospital prescribes it to patients?  This is also part of the medical genocide agenda, and it's a war on humanity.

Media smear campaign against ivermectin timed to clear market for Pfizer's new ivermectin-like clone drug, which will be hailed as a "miracle".  If you are wondering why ivermectin has dominated the mainstream news cycle recently, the answer is Pfizer, which is right now trying to pirate the drug in an attempt to create a new "blockbuster" cash cow.  On Monday [9/27/2021], the pharmaceutical giant announced to the world that it is launching an "accelerated" Phase 2/3 trial for a "new" covid prophylactic pill that strangely enough sounds like ivermectin under a new name.  Pfizer says that its "new" drug for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) will act as a "potent protease inhibitor."  It just so happens that ivermectin does the exact same thing, which is why some are now jokingly calling this "new" drug "Pfizermectin."  This is not to say that whatever drug ends up being commercially released by Pfizer will be exactly the same as ivermectin, just to be clear.  Chances are it will be tweaked and tinkered with to be less effective than real ivermectin because the powers that be do not want people to actually stay protected against and heal from covid.

Safety Signals for COVID Vaccines Are Loud and Clear.  Why Is Nobody Listening?  To begin with, there has been an unprecedented increase in the number of adverse event reports to VAERS associated with COVID-19 vaccines.  The chart below shows the number of deaths for all other vaccines reported to VAERS annually since the system's inception in 1990, compared to deaths reported for COVID-19 vaccines, from both domestic and foreign sources.  As of early September, there have been 14,506 deaths reported to VAERS for COVID-19 vaccines, compared to 8,673 for the preceding 30 years for all other vaccines.  That is already more than 50 times the annual average — and we still have four months left to go until the end of the year.  It is hard to imagine how anyone can look at these numbers and not be at least a little bit concerned.  Yet many people are dismissive, saying the unprecedented number of reports is due to the unprecedented number of vaccinations being administered.

The Critical Importance of Vitamin D.  The importance of maintaining optimal levels of vitamin D can't be overstated.  Vitamin D regulates the expression of hundreds of genes and is integral to biological functions that affect every bodily system.  Vitamin D insufficiency or deficiency can trigger several generalized symptoms that you may have associated with other health conditions.  It's also called the sunshine vitamin since your skin makes vitamin D when exposed to ultraviolet light from the sun.  Vitamin D performs many functions within the body, including maintaining adequate levels of calcium and phosphate, essential for normal bone mineralization.  It helps reduce inflammation, which is necessary for the modulation of cell growth and immune function.  Vitamin D also affects genes that help regulate cell differentiation and apoptosis (programmed cell death).

Google Subsidiary YouTube Bans Any Content or Discussion Critical of Vaccines.  Google has made a big move today [9/29/2021] to block any public discussion of vaccines, side-effects or efficacy.  Within an announcement on YouTube, the Google subsidiary has changed its policy and will now block any content that is critical of vaccines.  Only correct thoughts and approved speech, from the global government perspective, will be permitted on the YouTube platform.

YouTube Bans All Content Stating 'Vaccines Are Ineffective or Dangerous,' Deletes RFK Jr And Dr Mercola's Channels.  Under YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki's new speech codes, YouTubers can now be banned for quoting CDC director Rochelle Walensky admitting last month on live TV that covid shots do not "prevent transmission" of the virus. [...] [Indeed], just quoting the long list of horrible side effects in Pfizer's own covid vaccine insert now qualifies as "misinformation."

Sebelius: Unvaccinated Are 'Like Secondhand Smoke' — They Can Make Me and My Family Sick.  Former Obama administration Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Wednesday [9/29/2021] on MSNBC's "All In" that Americans who have not received a coronavirus vaccine are like "secondhand smoke" in that they can make people sick.  [Video clip]

New NY Gov. Slammed for Invoking God to Spread COVID Fearmongering.  New York Gov. Kathy Hochul's divisive and exploitative use of religion to smear vaccine hesitant individuals and spread COVID fearmongering could bolster a conservative group's challenge of the state's vaccine mandates, according to a recent court filing.  Earlier this week, the Democrat governor told a gathering of people at the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn that God had led scientists, doctors and researchers to successfully develop the coronavirus vaccine.  Those who are vaccinated are the "smart ones," she said, and added that "you know there's people out there who aren't listening to God and what God wants.  You know who they are."

The COVID Caste System.  [Scroll down]  Nowhere, however, is the new American caste system more evident than with COVID-19.  Did you see Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) at the Met Gala?  The publicity focused on her "Tax the Rich" dress, but just as notable was the video, released by Vogue magazine, of AOC in full Cinderella mode, flanked by multiple attendants, straightening her hair, fixing her dress, holding up the long train, adjusting her heels.  They were all masked; she was not.  This was hardly an isolated case.  Shortly before the Met Gala, the Obamas held a massive party to celebrate Barack Obama's 60th birthday.  Again, the guests that included political leaders, business moguls, and Hollywood celebrities were all unmasked.  The chefs, the servers, the valets, and the other staff were all masked.  An upper caste and a lower caste, both playing their roles in Obama's large tent.  Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, also just had a birthday, and video showed a small, unventilated room in which Jayapal and her maskless friends all partied together.  It was the same story with San Francisco Mayor London Breed, who violated her own mask mandate while partying at a club.  The Emmys, too, featured clip after clip of unmasked actors, producers, and directors walking the press photo line, and only when they crossed over to the other side could you see all the staff and attendants, masked, of course, taking them back to their seats.

7 People Died From COVID In Australia Yesterday... 6 Were Vaccinated, That Makes 35 Of Late.  Thirty-five fully vaccinated people have now died in NSW's Delta outbreak, with three fully vaccinated patients among the seven deaths recorded yesterday [9/28/2021].  This again goes counter to the 'vaccinate them all' argument that seems to shift weekly.  First, they told everyone that getting vaccinated will keep you from CATCHING COVID. Then, once people started catching COVID even after 2 doses, they moved the goalposts to 'you can get sick but won't end up in the hospital,' which quickly fell apart as Isreal and Iceland's hospitals filled up with fully vaccinated patients.  Then the narrative switched once again to 'at least you won't die.'  [Video clip]

Attorney Proves At Least 50k Medicare Patients Died From The COVID Vaccines Within Weeks Of The Jab.  Thanks to a Whistleblower that came forth to Attorney Thomas Renz, the public is now seeing, for the first time ever, hard data from the largest database available in the U.S. to study the COVID-19 impact including deaths & injuries; The CMS Medicare Tracking System.  [Video clip]

Are Perceptions of COVID Changing?  Mask and vaccine mandates are less politically damaging than they should be.  Recent polls show that around 64% of Americans support mask mandates, although less than half view masks as effective.  One in four view masks as hazardous and ineffective.  Playing on COVID fears, Democrats are beating Republicans 45% to 33% on their handling of the COVID pandemic.  John Q. Public views the party that called the pandemic a hoax, that played games with lockdowns, and that had plentiful hairdresser and French Laundry moments as they abused and made light of the pandemic, to be more trustworthy on the issue.  Why, and what can be done to correct this?

Choosing Senility Over Substance.  Observing Biden's single-track, my-way-or-the-highway insistence upon vaccinating anyone and everyone no matter their personal history or medical circumstances, one can't help but long for Trump's far more nuanced and sophisticated approach.  Over the lengthening course of this China-born plague, the person the Democrats tried to paint as a would-be Mussolini was in fact scrupulously respectful of both individual liberties and the constitutionally- prescribed prerogatives of the several States.  The emerging autocrat Biden's pandemic fighting inclinations in stark contrast seem more aligned with those of Xi-Xin Ping than any American leader in memory. [...] Despite Joe's typically grandiose, gruel-for-dummies pronouncements about "shutting down the virus," Trump's overall framework for combating COVID has remained in place among those actually on the frontlines.  However, now that they're fully in power, the Democrats still insist upon continuing to denigrate traditional, off-patent medicines.  Ivermectin has now joined Hydroxychloroquine on the wanted poster of cheap medicinal outlaws unfit for enlightened society.

Vaccine Mandates:  A Tale of Two Legal Battles.  In August, a slew of healthcare groups gave their employees deadlines to take COVID-19 vaccines or face termination.  Although these mandates on paper allowed for religious and medical exemptions, in multiple cases, when exemptions proved hard to come by, employees facing threats of termination resorted to lawsuits to hold onto their jobs.  How did these lawsuits turn out, and who eventually submitted to the will of the other: the healthcare group or the plaintiffs?  Earlier this month, the University of Alabama at Birmingham Health Systems, a state healthcare group, paused its COVID-19 vaccine mandate until further "federal guidance" about the Biden administration's mandate for all businesses with more than 100 employees.  This pause in the mandate came about one week after UAB Health Systems received a letter from a conservative public-interest firm, Alabama Center for Law and Liberty (ACLL), threatening a lawsuit.

65% Say Americans Should Not Lose Their Jobs if They Object to COVID Vaccine.  According to a new Trafalgar Group poll, the vast, bipartisan majority of American voters oppose vaccine mandates for American workers.  The poll, conducted in partnership with the Convention of States Action from September 17 to 19, included responses from 1097 likely voters.  65% of voters do not believe Americans should lose their jobs if they object to taking the COVID-19 vaccine, while 22.2% believe they should, and 12.8% aren't sure.

Behind the Scenes of the Natural Origin Narrative.  A sequence of events in early 2020 suggest that Dr. Anthony Fauci and a small group of scientists sought to promote the natural origins theory as a means to avoid public scrutiny of the possibility that COVID-19 had leaked from a lab.  Fauci received several warnings in late Jan. 2020 that prompted him to hold a private teleconference on Feb. 1, 2020.  Emails from participants show that during this teleconference, the two main presenters made clear to the teleconference group that they believed it was a real possibility that COVID-19 originated from a lab.  These same presenters were simultaneously completing an article, later known as Proximal Origin, which publicly promoted the Natural Origins theory and dismissed any lab leak theories.  Proximal Origin, which would prove to be highly influential, would be viewed more than half a million times and has been extensively used by Fauci and the corporate media in their promotion of the natural origins narrative.

Los Angeles County Defends Emmys, Says Mask Exceptions Are Fine for 'Television Productions'.  Los Angeles County responded to criticism that the Emmy Awards, in which mostly maskless celebrities attended, did not follow proper COVID-19 protocols and didn't abide by the county's mask mandate.  The Emmys, it said, are a "television production," which exempts the event from county rules around masks.  "The Emmy Award Show is a television production, and persons appearing on the show are considered performers," the statement said.  "All persons appearing on or in the audience of the Emmy Award Show were fully vaccinated against COVID-19."  County officials said that the organizers of the awards banquet for television had "reached out to Public Health in advance to share their safety protocols, which exceeded the baseline requirements for television and film productions" before adding that "careful planning before large events is essential to assure that all health and safety requirements are adequately addressed."

COVID-19 Detention Camps:  Are Government Round-Ups of Resistors in Our Future?  This is what we know:  the government has the means, the muscle and the motivation to detain individuals who resist its orders and do not comply with its mandates in a vast array of prisons, detention centers, and FEMA concentration camps paid for with taxpayer dollars.  It's just a matter of time.  It no longer matters what the hot-button issue might be (vaccine mandates, immigration, gun rights, abortion, same-sex marriage, healthcare, criticizing the government, protesting election results, etc.) or which party is wielding its power like a hammer.  The groundwork has already been laid.  Under the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the President and the military can detain and imprison American citizens with no access to friends, family or the courts if the government believes them to be a terrorist.  So it should come as no surprise that merely criticizing the government or objecting to a COVID-19 vaccine could get you labeled as a terrorist.  After all, it doesn't take much to be considered a terrorist anymore, especially given that the government likes to use the words "anti-government," "extremist" and "terrorist" interchangeably.

YouTube Bans All 'Harmful Vaccine Content' From Its Platform.  Google-owned YouTube said on Sept. 29 that it will ban all "harmful vaccine content" from its platform, including claims that vaccines are ineffective at reducing transmission of disease, prompting concerns that the firm will escalate censorship of dissenting viewpoints.  "We've steadily seen false claims about the coronavirus vaccines spill over into misinformation about vaccines in general, and we're now at a point where it's more important than ever to expand the work we started with COVID-19 to other vaccines," YouTube wrote in a blog post.  So far, the Bay Area-based company said it has removed 130,000 videos for violating its policies that it claims were created in tandem with various "experts" to deal with alleged "COVID-19 and medical misinformation."  Now it removes content that claims "approved vaccines are dangerous and cause chronic health effects, claims that vaccines do not reduce transmission or contraction of disease, or contains misinformation on the substances contained in vaccines," YouTube stated on its blog, saying that its policy will now apply to content that questions the efficacy of all vaccines, not just those for COVID-19.

Of Course:  Fauci Revises the Definition of 'Fully Vaccinated'.  Dr. Anthony Fauci has moved the goalposts on what it means to be "fully vaccinated," and I'm sure you can guess how it has changed.  For many months now, being "fully vaccinated" meant that you had to have two doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccine, but now, according to Fauci, you're not fully vaccinated unless you get the booster shot. [...] Fauci also said that the boosters don't keep people alive, just from experiencing severe symptoms.  "I think we should be preventing people from getting sick from COVID even if they don't wind up in the hospital," he said.  The scary part about Fauci's redefining "fully vaccinated" is the implications it has for those impacted by Biden's vaccine mandate.  Will people who've had their two doses of Pfizer and Moderna not be considered fully vaccinated and face termination under Biden's vaccine mandate?

AT&T to require vaccines for 90,000 of its union workers.  AT&T has become one of the largest employers in the U.S. to mandate vaccines for a significant number of front-line workers.  The telecom company said Wednesday [9/29/2021] that its employees in the Communications Workers of America union will be required to be fully vaccinated by Feb. 1, "unless they get an approved job accommodation."  CWA represents about 90,000 AT&T workers, the union said.  It is the largest union at the company, which had about 230,000 employees as of the end of January.

Thank You, Now You're Fired.  They were the best of us, way better than any of the rest of us, by a lot according to the media and Democrats.  I'm talking, of course, about the frontline workers who kept us safe and healthy throughout the pandemic.  But yesterday's heroes are today's history's greatest monsters... which is what the left is now saying about those they wept at the thought of just one year ago. [...] Weird how the party of "tolerance" has a history littered almost exclusively with people they now rip down statues of because they existed wrong, while they simultaneously defend and push to implement further the policies of those very same people. [...] The choice to get vaccinated or not is, like every other medical decision, a personal one.  But the left wants it public, which isn't really surprising from the people who champion "shout your abortion," but is odd from the people who have declared it to be just short of a hate crime to ask a man who insists he's a woman whether or not he's had any parts removed.

Massachusetts state troopers are opting to resign rather than get COVID-19 vaccines.  Several state troopers in Massachusetts have opted to walk away from their jobs rather than get the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.  According to the State Police Association of Massachusetts (SPAM), dozens of troopers have submitted their resignation papers because of the state's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  Some have spoken with the human resources department to evaluate what their pensions would be if they choose to retire.  The state is requiring all executive department employees to show proof of vaccination by Oct. 17 or risk losing their jobs.  About 20 percent of State Police employees are not vaccinated.

Zero Freedom:  "Zero COVID" strategy will see Australians lose freedoms, face jail time for entering shops without a vaccine passport.  Australia's new zero COVID strategy is being used by the government to restrict people's participation in society, and leaders of the state of New South Wales announced in a press briefing this week that unvaccinated people are going to lose their freedoms next month.  In the announcement of updated COVID protocols they're calling a "blueprint for freedom," NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced that residents who are vaccinated can enjoy a list of "extra freedoms" when the state reaches an 80 percent vaccination rate.  The state, which is home to Australia's most populous city, Sydney, had already set a 70 percent threshold goal that would open up certain freedoms to people who are vaccinated.

University backs down after requiring COVID jab for online studies.  Mount Royal University (MRU) has backed down following a legal warning from the Justice Centre, after initially requiring exclusively online students to disclose their vaccination status or face potential deregistration from their classes.  On September 20, 2021, MRU sent an email to a student who attends all of his classes online, warning that if he failed to declare his vaccination status by September 21 at 4 p.m., he "may be deregistered from your courses."  The Justice Centre was contacted by other students who received similar emails.

When Will The U.S. Be Released From COVID Prison?  Japan announced Tuesday [9/28/2021] that it was lifting its coronavirus state of emergency.  The country joins Norway, Sweden, and Denmark in returning to normal.  America, however, will continue to be largely under the boot of politicians, bureaucrats, and meddlesome public health officials.  Even convicts have release dates.  But we have no idea when we'll be liberated because there are no objective standards, only political whim.  When asked Monday "how many Americans need to be vaccinated for us to go back to normal," President Joe Biden replied:  "I think we get the vast majority ... 96, 97, 98 percent."  First of all, that's unrealistic.  There is no single activity that more than 95% of the population, any population, will agree to participate in.  Even if Biden said that Washington was going to hand out $1 million to every American next week, there would be holdouts.  So the president's benchmark is never going to be met.  Which might very well be by design.  Second, herd immunity can be achieved when as little as "70% of the population — more than 200 million people" have recovered from COVID-19, says the Mayo Clinic, [...]

Vaccination or termination:  Police push back against COVID-19 shot mandates.  Police across the country are filing lawsuits, requesting exemptions and considering quitting or getting fired over their opposition to coronavirus vaccine mandates.  Nearly 200 San Francisco police officers have applied for religious exemptions to avoid a required inoculation by Oct. 13 or risk being fired.  A survey this month of 733 members of the San Diego Police Officers Association showed about 91% (667) do not believe vaccines should be mandated and 45% (333) said they would rather be fired than comply with a vaccine mandate.

Mo Brooks Co-sponsors Legislation to Nix Federal Vaccine Mandates.  Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) has officially cosponsored legislation offered by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), which would nix President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate, stopping the federal government from requiring employers to require vaccines or implement weekly testing programs.  "Joe Biden claims the U.S. Constitution empowers a president to mandate vaccines.  He is wrong.  Under the Constitution, states, not the federal government have that power," Brooks said in a statement, challenging anyone to "identify a provision in the U.S. Constitution that unambiguously gives Joe Biden or the federal government the authority he arrogantly claims."

The Editor says...
Yeas, but the States don't have that power, either.  The Constitution says that the powers not delegated to the federal government are reserved to the states or to the people.  That doesn't mean the states have the power to do whatever they want.

Most Americans no longer trust Biden's COVID information:  Poll.  Most Americans no longer trust President Biden to give accurate information about the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the latest Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index.  Conducted Sept. 24-27, the survey of 1,105 Americans over the age of 18 reported that only 45% trust President Biden "a great deal or a fair amount" to give them honest information about the virus, while 53% trust him "very little or not at all."  "Fewer than half now say they trust the president, a 13-percentage point decline from his high water mark right after his inauguration in January," wrote the survey's four authors.

Lancet Scrubs Entire COVID Origins Investigation Team After National Pulse Exposés.  The Lancet medical journal scrubbed its COVID-19 origins investigation team, led by EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak, following several National Pulse exposés revealing the group's conflict of interest with the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Chinese Communist Party.  The defunct committee — "Origins, Early Spread of the Pandemic, and One Health Solutions to Future Pandemic Threats" — was one of 12 task forces operating as part of the broader Lancet COVID-19 commission.  Its termination follows the recusal of Daszak — a "longtime collaborator" of the Wuhan Institute of Virology — from his role as the task force leader.

The Case for Optimism.  An increasing number of people now understand that the China Virus was not only a tool for drowning the 2020 presidential election with illegal mail-in ballots devoid of chain of custody or security of any kind, but also a mechanism for undermining inherent personal freedoms while ushering in a new Super-State with near total control over speech, social gatherings, ideas, and economic relations. [...] In America — the Land of the Free — the government now declares that it may mandate what goes into each citizen's body, decide which tenets of religion will be "allowed" to survive, outlaw speech it does not like, and tautologically vilify anyone who resists the State's illegitimate new powers as being an "enemy of the state."  Objecting to tyranny now makes one a "terrorist."  The whole thing is so absurd and so unfathomable to most Americans that it is causing them to lose faith in any future at all.

Doctor claims COVID treatment [is] meant to kill patients.  Last week, someone sent me a link to a 16-minute-long video by Dr. Bryan Ardis that apparently answers the question, "Why?" The answer is macabre.  The title is "Hospital Protocols Are Murdering Americans by Prescribing Remdesivir which Causes Renal Failure."  According to Dr. Ardis, the medical staff at the hospitals are oblivious that they're poisoning their patients to death.  They're merely following the guidelines issued by the World Health Organization and the associated vegetable-soup acronyms.  The vast majority of COVID-related deaths occur in hospitals.  But they're not dying from the disease; they're dying from the treatment.  Dr. Ardis implores his audience not to go into the ICU, and if they must, they should refuse to accept the protocol including Remdesivir, directing them to a resource at "myfreedoctor.com," where physicians prescribe the early treatment medications free of charge.  They also have legal teams that will threaten the hospitals against administrating Remdesivir.  The renal (kidney) failure induced by Remdesivir will cause the body to stop excreting fluids and cause pulmonary edema, drowning the patient in his own body.  Then the hospital will diagnose it as COVID-related pneumonia.  It's worse than that, but I'm just giving you the highlights.

An NBA Star and New York's Governor Show That Liberal COVID Discourse is Devoid of Science.  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.  As large sectors of the population continue to question or disobey their COVID decrees, they have begun to make more explicit this condescending view.  Liberals feel free to disparage them as "stupid" notwithstanding long-standing (though diminishing) racial disparities among this group.  A CNN headline from last month told part of the story:  "Black New Yorkers may have the lowest vaccination rates, but community groups refuse to give up."  Citing data from the city's health agency, the network reported that "citywide, just 28% of Black New Yorkers between the ages of 18 and 44 are fully vaccinated.  The Hispanic community is the second-least fully vaccinated population in that age group, with 49% being fully vaccinated."  Two weeks ago, Bloomberg reported that while some of the unvaccinated are unable to get the vaccine (due to work pressures or health conditions), most of them are vaccine-hesitant by choice and continue to reflect racial disparities. [...] Yet liberal elites continue to call anyone who is unvaccinated "stupid," ignorant and immoral.

Truth Being Ignored — Victoria Australia Records 867 New COVID Cases, 375 in Hospital and 95% of Those Hospitalized are Vaccinated.  Pay close attention to what Victoria, Australia, Health Minister Martin Foley says at the 2:45 minute mark of his comments.  Health Minister Foley announced 867 new COVID cases recorded yesterday.  During the statistical outline Foley identifies 375 people as hospitalized, 81 people in intensive care and 61 people on a ventilator.  Then comes the statistic everyone in government and media ignore.  Amid the recorded cases "78% of the hospital cases are fully vaccinated, and 17% are partially vaccinated (1 dose)" ... That means 95% of the COVID patients in Victoria hospitals are vaccinated.  356 people out of 375 patients are vaccinated, yet 81 people are still in intensive care with 61 on a ventilator.

More than 180 Minnesota health care workers sue over vaccine mandate.  More than 180 health care workers spanning hospital systems across Minnesota are asking for an injunction to stop their employers from mandating they be vaccinated from COVID-19, saying the directive violates religious freedoms and other state and federal laws.  A lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court includes unnamed plaintiffs from hospitals and clinics across Minnesota and identifies nearly two dozen health care institutions as defendants, along with other federal health officials.  Those being sued include some of the state's top health care facilities, such as Mayo Clinic, Fairview Health Services, University of Minnesota Physicians and Regions Hospital.  The lawsuit comes weeks after President Joe Biden announced new federal mandates for vaccinations, which includes health care workers at facilities that receive Medicare or Medicaid and those who work at businesses with 100 or more employees.

YouTube bans all content containing vaccine misinformation.  YouTube has banned all videos containing misinformation about vaccines that are currently administered and have been approved by local health authorities or the World Health Organization.  The measure is an expansion of a policy covering COVID-19 vaccines.  The service says that users shouldn't, for instance, post videos in which they claim that vaccines lead to chronic side effects (other than rare side effects that health authorities have acknowledged); content that alleges vaccines don't reduce transmission or contraction of diseases; or videos that have inaccuracies about vaccine ingredients.  There are some exceptions.  YouTube "will continue to allow content about vaccine policies, new vaccine trials and historical vaccine successes or failures."

YouTube Announces It Will Ban All 'Anti-Vaccine' Content.  The social media giant YouTube will begin banning content it deems "anti-vaccine," claiming that sowing skepticism about the coronavirus vaccine has led to reduced vaccination rates across the country.  "Misinformation researchers" have claimed for years that vaccine skepticism on YouTube was leading to reduced vaccination rates not only for COVID-19 vaccines but for childhood disease vaccines as well.  But YouTube has resisted targeting anti-vax skeptics, saying that maintaining a relatively open platform was a free speech issue.  But the social media company has come under increasing threat from government regulators who want YouTube and other social media sites to spout only government-approved ideas about vaccines.  The YouTube ban could easily include bans on content that discusses side effects or vaccine efficacy.

Poll Shows Most Americans Wildly Overestimate COVID Hospitalization Risks.  A new Gallup poll shows that when it comes to COVID risks, a lot of Americans have no idea what's going on.  The poll, involving 3,158 adult Americans, tells us that 41% of Democrats believe the unvaccinated have a 50% chance of being hospitalized because of COVID.  Independents believe the correct number is 26%, while Republicans came in at 22%.  The correct answer:  Fewer than 1% of unvaccinated people infected with COVID will have to go to the hospital.

Nearly 600 United Airlines employees face termination for failing to comply with vaccine mandate.  United Airlines said Tuesday [9/28/2021] that 593 of its employees are facing termination for failing to comply with its Covid-19 vaccination policy, one of the strictest mandates for inoculation from a U.S. company.  More than 96% of United's 67,000-person U.S. workforce complied with the vaccine requirement.  The deadline to upload proof of inoculation, or the first shot if receiving a two-dose vaccine, was late Monday.  Roughly 2,000 United employees sought exemptions from the mandate, which the airline announced this summer, for religious or medical reasons.  The Chicago-based airline had said staff to whom it grants such exemptions will be placed on temporary unpaid leave.

Vaccine IDs expose Democrats' lies about voter IDs.  As the Biden administration pushes to mandate vaccines for every worker, vaccine ID cards will become an integral part of the rest of the pandemic, however long it lasts.  Workers will need one to remain employed or allowed to work.  Yet previously, Democrats argued asking for IDs was racist because many minorities were somehow unable to obtain a government-issued ID.  But all these hurdles seem to vanish miraculously when it comes to getting vaccination IDs.  Keep in mind, the notion that somehow people were not able to obtain a government-issued ID was always complete hogwash.  Moreover, it was even more ridiculous to assume that it was much harder for people of color to get valid IDs.  The only people who do not have IDs are those who choose not to get them, just as those who have not been vaccinated are those who have chosen not to be.  That said, even if this were a legitimate barrier, the methodology used to distribute vaccine IDs could be replicated for voter IDs.

Will A Vaccine Mandate Trigger The Great Resignation?  President Joe Biden's wide-ranging vaccine mandate will affect tens of millions of U.S. workers, but experts, labor unions and business groups are divided on what impact the rule will have.  While experts disagree on whether the federal mandate, which applies to the majority of the U.S. workforce, may lead to mass resignations, the rule will at the very least disrupt workplaces nationwide, Erik Eisenmann, a partner at the national law firm Husch Blackwell, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.  "I think one of the effects that you will see over the next month, as more and more businesses roll out mandates is that there's going to be a shrinking population that are still objecting," Eisenmann said in an interview.  "I'm probably bearish on the idea that you're going to have mass resignations that are going to be disruptive."

NY Hospitals Remove Hordes Of Anti-Vax Workers Who Defied Mandate.  Hospitals in New York state suspended or fired scores of workers Tuesday after they refused to comply with the state's new mandate for health care employees to be vaccinated for coronavirus, officials said Tuesday [9/28/2021].  St. Barnabas Hospital in The Bronx reported that 98 workers, mostly in its housekeeping and nursing divisions, failed to show proof of getting a COVID-19 shot.  But that number had dropped from 140 employees earlier on Monday, an indication that the workers now realize the edict to get vaccinated — or get fired — is real and many are complying at the last minute to keep their jobs.  The nearly 100 employees are suspended without pay and have until next week to show proof or face termination, a St. Barnabas spokesman said.

Biden Gets COVID-19 Booster Shot On Camera But Photos Reveal That It Was A Movie-Set With A Fake Background.  President Biden received his COVID-19 vaccine booster shot on Monday, after public health officials recommended boosters for many Americans, including those 65 and older.  Mr. Biden, 78, got his third shot on camera, and delivered brief remarks before his jab.  The Food and Drug Administration granted an emergency use authorization last week for booster doses of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine six months after the completion of the two-dose course for those 65 and older, those with some underlying conditions and those who work in high-risk environments.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also recommended a booster shot for these groups of people.

DeSantis Questions US Diplomatic Relationship With 'Off-The-Rails' Australia Over Military COVID Lockdowns.  Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., questioned Tuesday if the United States should rethink its diplomatic relationship with Australia given its strict, military-enforced COVID-19 lockdowns.  Speaking at the International Boat Builders' Exhibition and Conference in Tampa, DeSantis touched on his own state's response to the virus, saying, "I really believe that if we had not done what we did during the last year and a half to keep the state open, to protect people's jobs, to protect our small businesses, to protect our kids being able to go to school — if we had not done that, a lot of these other states wouldn't have followed.  [Tweet]  "And who knows where we would be right now?" he asked.

Orlando Magic Player, Jonathan Isaac, Drops Truth Bombs About The Vaccine.  Jonathan Isaac answers questions in regards to his vaccination status at Orlando Magic Media Day.  "I've had Covid already, so our understanding of antibodies and natural immunity is still evolving.  With my age group and physical fitness level it's not necessarily a fear of mine.  Taking the Vaccine, it opens me up to the rare chance of having an adverse reaction to the Vaccine itself.  I don't believe that being Unvaccinated means being infected or being Vaccinated means uninfected.  You can still catch Covid with or without the Vaccine."  Isaac was responding to a Rolling Stone hit piece on him, calling him an anti-vaxxer.  [Video clip]

Melbourne's Health Minister Martin Foley Drops Bombshell, 85% Of Those In Hospital Are Vaccinated.  Melbourne's Health Minister Martin Foley:"  Of the people who were in hospital yesterday [9/27/2021], 78% were vaccinated and 17 % were partially vaccinated."  [Video clip]

Senior Army flight surgeon warns pilots could die in mid-flight from vaccine side effects.  A senior U.S. Army flight surgeon with specialized training in infectious diseases has filed an affidavit against the Biden administration's vaccine mandate for active-duty military personnel, warning that problematic heart side effects may cause pilots to die in mid-flight.  Lt. Col. Theresa Long, the surgeon responsible for certifying the fitness of 4,000 flight-ready airmen at the 1st Aviation Brigade in Ft. Rucker, Alabama, said that she is concerned that the vaccines can cause inflamed heart muscles in young men in the age range of most flight-ready pilots, and that the Department of Defense has not followed its own protocols by requiring an MRI scan of each airman after vaccination.  "The majority of young new Army aviators are in their early twenties.  We know there is a risk of myocarditis with each mRNA vaccination," Dr. Long states in the affidavit.

The Editor says...
Those so-called vaccinations are getting a lot more expensive, if they have to include an MRI afterward to assess the damage.

Pfizer Launches Final Study For COVID Drug That's Suspiciously Similar To 'Horse Paste'.  Another piece US anti-Ivermectin puzzle may have emerged.  On Monday, Pfizer announced that it's launching an accelerated Phase 2/3 trial for a COVID prophylactic pill designed to ward off COVID in those may have come in contact with the disease.  Coincidentally (or not), Pfizer's drug shares at least one mechanism of action as Ivermectin — an anti-parasitic used in humans for decades, which functions as a protease inhibitor against Covid-19, which researchers speculate "could be the biophysical basis behind its antiviral efficiency."  Lo and behold, Pfizer's new drug[,] which some have jokingly dubbed "Pfizermectin," is described by the pharmaceutical giant as a "potent protease inhibitor."

Ron DeSantis Goes There on Australia and Sets the Standard.  Over the last several months, I've penned quite a few pieces detailing the dystopian nightmare Australia has become.  Spending most of the last year chasing the impossible standard of "zero COVID," the once flourishing democracy has been reduced to a medical security state in which people are beaten for daring to be outside without a mask.  I wish I were being hyperbolic, but I'm not.  Here's a taste of what people there are dealing with.  [Video clip] [...] Not only does DeSantis pointedly say that Australia is not a "free" country right now, he takes it a step further and hits on something I've mentioned in the past.  Why is the United States government ignoring tyranny in Australia that we'd be decrying if it occurred in China?  As DeSantis insinuates, it's fairly inexcusable that we'd maintain the same diplomatic relations with a country that is behaving like Australia is behaving.  I know that sounds crazy, but just because a country was once part of the Western democratic order does not mean they should get a free pass for committing literal human rights violations. [...] I mean the Australian police literally busting heads over non-compliance with mask mandates.

The Activist Media Has Done an Exemplary Job of Deceiving the American People on COVID-19.  When it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic, the activist media has performed masterfully. [...] Ever since it became apparent that the COVID-19 outbreak would be a serious issue, the Democrats and their close friends and allies in the activist media have been trying to convince us that we're all gonna die slow, painful deaths after being infected.  The press has been on a full-on crusade to terrify the American people into abiding by lockdown orders and mask mandates.  They used fear to make us more amenable to government encroaching on our lives. [...] Since the government wants to push mandatory vaccines and use the pandemic as an excuse to impose intrusive measures to control the populace, the activist media seeks to persuade the public that this is all for their own good.  It launched a whole persuasion campaign specifically designed to confuse and terrify people into complying with the government.

The left's three-pronged assault on America:  Covid, the border, submission to China.  Joe Biden allegedly got his third jab on live TV on Monday [9/27/2021].  He was already "fully vaccinated" and still wore a mask.  Does that give anyone confidence in the vaccine? [...] Biden, as surely everyone knows by now, even those who voted for him, is seriously cognitively challenged.  He was never a smart man but now he is non compos mentis.  He understands nothing about science, certainly not the science of virology or epidemiology.  He reads words from teleprompters others have scripted.  He has no grasp of the meaning of the words he is reading.  The man and his minders are a plague upon America far more devastating than covid.  Covid is the hoax on which they, the global elite, have hitched their wagon to, the pseudo-plague that will bring all of us rubes to our knees.  Some Australian states have capitulated, devolving into a functional tyranny.  Police attack persons on the street without a mask or even for leaving their homes.  Are those Stalinist tactics coming here?

COVID-19 Is the New Global Warming.  [Scroll down]  The acceptance or rejection of the vaccine mandate and passport is more a reflection of political loyalties and the degree of wokeism an individual exhibits than it is a desire to adhere to rigorous scientific evidence.  Firstly, it's not a vaccine, not in the traditional sense.  Real vaccines, like the polio vaccine, prevent the disease.  This doesn't.  The-drug makers don't even claim that it will.  Nor will it stop the transmission.  All they claim is a meaningful reduction in the chances of getting COVID-19 and a reduction in the severity and duration of symptoms should a person become infected.  A recent study showed that U.S. COVID cases in early September 2021 were up 300% compared to September 2020, even though 66% of the adult population is vaccinated in 2021 compared to 0% in September 2020.  So much for "prevention."  They're treatments, therapeutics, not vaccines.  There have more incidents by far of bad side-effects with these so-called vaccines than with other longer-standing vaccines that have been in use for decades.  Cheaper, totally safe COVID therapeutics (like ivermectin, Regeneron, and hydroxychloroquine) exist that have proven extremely effective, even if the studies showing that have been suppressed by politically motivated parties and the liberal media and Big Tech.

Soldiers, Sailors Say No!  Representative Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) has fielded dozens of communications from distraught active and reserve service men and women concerned about the impending military mandate to receive a COVID vaccine.  He has responded by introducing H.R. 3860, a bill that would ban such a mandate.  As of September 16, his bill had picked up 33 co-sponsors, all of whom are Republicans.  The matter has been referred to the House Armed Services Subcommittee, and at this time there is no scheduled hearing on the measure.  On August 24, 2021, the secretary of defense issued a memorandum directing that each service branch should have "ambitious timelines for implementation" of the COVID vaccine mandate.  In response, each service branch set its own deadline.  As of this writing, the vaccine mandate is scheduled to go into effect November 2 for active-duty Air Force and November 28 for active-duty Navy and Marines, and December 15 for active-duty Army.  Many service members who have refused the jab would disagree with the claim that the military takes "freedom of religion and worship" seriously.

How to Nullify COVID Vaccine Mandates.  Michigan's H.B. 4471, styled the "Informed Consent in the Workplace Act," is a fine example of what states are doing to protect workers from vaccine mandates.  Its passage, and the passage of similar measures across the nation, will require significant grassroots effort.  The media-inspired crescendo of calls for employers to force vaccine mandates upon their employees under threat of termination has created a new round of COVID terror in the American workplace.  "My constituents have been calling me in tears," reported Michigan State Representative Beth Griffin, chairwoman of the Michigan House Subcommittee on Workforce, Trades and Talent, "saying the media's lack of coverage from emerging peer reviewed studies is horrible ... and they are angry because only one side of this vaccination issue and discussion is acceptable."  Florida and Montana have passed legislation prohibiting employers from making employees demonstrate proof of vaccination status.  Similar legislation of various types is pending or planned in 39 additional states.  However, these legislative moves have come up against stiff opposition.

Unions Quiet As NYC Poised To Fire 7,800 Unvaxxed Teachers.  Unions representing the approximately 7,800 teachers who will lose their jobs have been largely silent about mass firings due to New York City's vaccine mandate.  New York City teachers must get vaccinated by Friday in order to keep working, The New York Times (NYT) reported.  While several New York City unions have criticized the rushed implementation of the mandate and expressed concern over the looming issue of understaffed schools, unions have been largely silent on the issue of firing unvaccinated teachers.  [Tweet]  The Council of School Supervisors and Administrators in New York City criticized the city for going forward with the mandate before addressing the impending staffing shortage, calling it "dangerous and irresponsible" to allow schools to operate so understaffed.

Japan to lift all COVID restrictions.  Anyone who followed the saga of Japan's journey through both the COVID plague and the country's disastrous efforts to host the Olympic Games is probably already aware that many restrictions were placed on both citizens and visitors while the Delta variant spread across their islands.  The nation's initial efforts in June and July to establish mass vaccination centers failed repeatedly due to both a problem in obtaining a sufficient number of doses and logistical nightmares encountered in trying to vaccinate such a widely distributed population.  This led to the political impacts on the career of Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and even worse physical impacts on a population with a huge number of elderly people.  But now that the spotlight of the games has moved on and the vaccination program has continued to roll out, the country is preparing to lift most of the remaining COVID restrictions this week.

NBA player:  Why should I be forced to get the vaccine when I've already had COVID?  Jonathan Isaac is devoutly religious, to the point where he once invited his teammates to watch him deliver a sermon in church.  He also declined to take a knee last year when other NBA players protested before games in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.  He goes his own way.  On vaccine mandates too, it turns out.  He's the only unvaccinated player on the Orlando Magic, reportedly — although not the only unvaccinated player within the league.

Some NBA Players Are Refusing The COVID Vaccines And Corporate Media Is Going NUTS.  We are coming closer and closer to a collision between public health officials instituting vaccine mandates and NBA players who refuse to "get the jab."  In August, the NBA had a goal of having 100% of players vaccinated for the Wuhan Virus.  That was a non-starter, and as a result, the players — some of whom have antibodies for SARS-CoV-2 — are being vilified in the media as "anti-vaxxer conspiracy theorists."  People are starting to notice that some big-name basketball players are refusing the vaccine despite local mandates.  Nets fans might not be able to see Kyrie Irving play at home because he has chosen not to get jabbed.  This is huge problem for the NBA considering Irving's superstar-power and that he is currently the vice president on the executive committee of the players' union.

Hospital System That Serves 4 States Fires 175 Workers After Vaccine Mandate.  Days after announcing that about 375 healthcare employees would be suspended, a North Carolina-based hospital system confirmed Monday that around 175 workers were fired in one of the largest-ever mass terminations due to a COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  Several days ago, Novant Health announced that around 375 of its employees had been suspended and were given five days to comply with the company's mandate.  "They will have an opportunity to comply over a five-day, unpaid suspension period," the company's release said.  "If a team member remains non-compliant after this suspension period, he or she will have their employment with Novant Health terminated."  Since then, "nearly 200 additional team members came into compliance, increasing that rate across Novant Health to over 99 percent," Novant spokeswoman Megan Rivers told news outlets on Monday.  "So fewer than 200 were non-compliant," it said, confirming that the rest were terminated for not complying with the mandate.

Covid medical protocols are flawed and killing people.  COVID-19 is not a viral pneumonia.  It is a viral vascular endotheliitis and attacks the lining of blood vessels, particularly the small pulmonary alveolar capillaries, leading to endothelial cell activation and sloughing, coagulopathy, sepsis, pulmonary edema, and ARDS-like symptoms.  This is a disease of the blood and blood vessels.  The circulatory system.  Any pneumonia that it causes is secondary to that.  In severe cases, this leads to sepsis, blood clots, and multiple organ failure, including hypoxic and inflammatory damage to various vital organs, such as the brain, heart, liver, pancreas, kidneys, and intestines.  Some of the most common laboratory findings in COVID-19 are elevated D-dimer, elevated prothrombin time, elevated C-reactive protein, neutrophilia, lymphopenia, hypocalcemia, and hyperferritinemia, essentially matching a profile of coagulopathy and immune system hyperactivation/immune cell exhaustion.  COVID-19 can present as almost anything, due to the wide tropism of SARS-CoV-2 for various tissues in the body's vital organs.  While its most common initial presentation is respiratory illness and flu-like symptoms, it can present as brain inflammation, gastrointestinal disease, or even heart attack or pulmonary embolism.

Poll: Majority Say Left Using Coronavirus Pandemic as 'Trojan Horse for Permanent Socialism'.  A majority of likely voters believe the radical left is using the Chinese coronavirus pandemic as a "Trojan horse for permanent socialism," a Rasmussen Reports survey released Monday found.  The survey asked respondents if they agreed or disagreed with the following statement:  "The radical left ... want to use this terrible but temporary pandemic as a Trojan horse for permanent socialism.  And President Biden, who ran as a unifying moderate, is either powerless to stop them or does not wish to."  A majority of likely voters, 59 percent, said they agree with that statement.  Of those, 43 percent "strongly" agree.

Biden's Vaccine Mandate Gets More Pointless Every Day.  Three weeks ago, President Joe Biden told America he'd ordered his regulators to draw up "emergency" workplace rules requiring vaccinations for everyone working for big companies.  Those rules have yet to emerge.  And they might not emerge for another month and a half.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration announced on Friday [9/24/2021] — which is the day politicians choose to release news when they want minimal coverage — that federal contractors will have until Dec. 8 to comply with that part of his mandate.  More than two months from now.  In other words, Biden hasn't managed to get his federal mandate implemented yet, and won't for some time.  What he has managed to achieve is dissension, confusion, lawsuits, and worker shortages — as well as a steady decline in daily vaccination rates.

Codevilla, courage, and COVID.  Angelo Codevilla, a man of "remarkable intellect and insights," passed away this month after a long and productive career.  In his response to the pandemic, Codevilla might have saved the best for last. [...] White House medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, a government bureaucrat since 1968, has headed the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984.  The establishment media billed Fauci as the nation's leading infectious diseases expert, but for Codevilla Fauci was a "deep state fraud."  Codevilla knew Fauci was a fraud "after listening to him for about 10 seconds" on the origin of the pandemic.  Fauci, whose bio includes no advanced degrees in microbiology or molecular biology, had funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology through NIAID.  Fauci "knew a lot" but remained evasive.  As Codevilla observed, Fauci acted "as a politicized, partisan bureaucrat while pretending to be the disinterested authority of physicians and scientists."  He reversed himself on many aspects of the pandemic and dismissed hydroxychloroquine even as peer-reviewed studies confirmed its usefulness.  "This is not how scientists behave," Codevilla wrote.  "Fauci, unfortunately, behaves as an ordinary creature of the Washington swamp."

Federal judges:  NYC can impose vaccine mandate on teachers.  The nation's largest school district can immediately impose a vaccine mandate on its teachers and other workers, after all, a federal appeals panel decided Monday [9/27/2021], leading lawyers for teachers to say they'll ask the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene.  The three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan issued a brief order late in the day that lifted a block of the mandate that a single appeals judge had put in place on Friday.  After an adverse ruling from a Brooklyn judge, a group of teachers had brought the case to the appeals court, which assigned a three-judge panel to hear oral arguments Wednesday.  But the appeals panel issued its order Monday after written arguments were submitted by both sides.

Big Brother is bluffing.
White House Has No Idea When, or Even If, OSHA Will Ever Provide Rules to Support Legally Enforceable Worker Vaccine Mandate.  On September 9th, Joe Biden made the announcement that all employers with more than 100 workers would be required to enforce a national worker vaccine mandate.  The White House stated that OSHA would, "develop a rule that will require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated."  However, following the announcement we noted OSHA was not taking any steps needed to engage with business interests to trigger the first-step in the organization of a process to initiate a rule-making process.  I'm only talking about the basic guidance aspect.  The labor discussions with internal and external customers of the DoL, OSHA, etc. to set a calendar for how to implement "guidance", just that part.  There was nothing, and there is nothing.

Navy SEALs Told They're Undeployable If They Don't Get a COVID-19 Vaccine:  Lawyers.  Navy SEALs have been informed by superiors that they won't be deployed if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine, even if they're granted a religious or medical exemption, according to lawyers representing the elite special operations troops and a document seen by The Epoch Times.  "What they've been told is if they apply for a religious accommodation, they will no longer be deployable," R. Davis Younts, who is representing seven SEALs and is in talks to take on approximately 20 others, told The Epoch Times.  Timothy Parlatore, whose firm represents a number of SEALs and other service members concerned about the vaccines, said his clients have also been given a similar ultimatum.  Some SEALs have even been sent home mid-deployment for refusing a COVID-19 vaccine, one of his clients told him.

Why are the FDA and CDC advisory panel members so afraid to debate COVID Vaccine Safety?  In early May, my friends reported death and disability after being vaccinated.  I started looking at the data and the more I looked, the more troubled I became.  I arranged to tell the world what I learned on Bret Weinstein's Darkhorse Podcast with my friend Robert Malone.  That video went viral with almost 1M views before YouTube censored it. [...] Fast forward to September 17, 2021.  I spoke out about the vaccines in the public input section of the FDA advisory meeting.  I said that everyone was avoiding the elephant in the room:  that the vaccines kill more people than they save.  Nobody on the panel was paying attention to my talk.  This is pretty typical.  I wasn't offended.  But the public was listening and I got millions of impressions on my talk.  No one in the mainstream media contacted me to challenge my statement.

Project Veritas Undercover Exposes Johnson and Johnson Officials Promoting the Politics of The Vaccine.  Project Veritas released the third video of its COVID vaccine investigative series today exposing two Johnson & Johnson [J&J] officials, who argue children do not need to take the COVID vaccine in part because of the potential long-term side effects.  [Video clip]

Uttar Pradesh government says early use of Ivermectin helped to keep positivity, deaths low.  A year after the country's first Covid-19 cluster, with 5 cases, was reported in Agra district, the Uttar Pradesh government has claimed that it was the first state to have introduced a large-scale "prophylactic and therapeutic" use of Ivermectin and added that the drug helped the state to maintain a lower fatality and positivity rate as compared to other states.  Citing the results from Agra in the month of May and June last year, following which the use of Ivermectin, a medicine to treat parasitic ailments, along with Doxycycline was introduced as a protocol across the state for both prophylactic as well as treatment purposes, the state Health Department said it would conduct a controlled study once the second wave of the pandemic subsides.

Schools are NOT a main source of COVID spread.  Schools are not the main source of COVID-19 spread and do not cause a spike in cases, a new study suggests.  Researchers from the Institute of Tropical Medicine and International Health in Berlin looked the results of Covid tests across dozens of classrooms across between February 2021 and March 2021.  They found that just two students and one teacher tested positive, even as the Alpha variant that originated in the UK was gaining dominance in Germany.

Covid Lockdown, Third-World Edition.  The more reasonable half of the American populace knows that, for most people, going a year or two without steady work is a bigger threat to their well-being than a mild respiratory virus whose average victim is older than the national life expectancy.  They know that, among other things, poor people don't live as long as rich people, and they don't appreciate being pushed further down the ladder for the sake of the virtue-signaling managerial-class flacks who work at secure, well-salaried positions in government, academia, medicine, law, or journalism and who have little skin in the game.  Chances are that, by now, you've heard more than enough about how the United States' bumbling response to the events of the last few years has left the working poor with the raw end of the deal.  What you're less likely to hear about is the view from the real bottom — the way that the global shutdown has impacted people in countries like Madagascar.

What's A Branch COVIDian?  Mom compares unmasked children to "deadly biological weapons, loaded firearms, and homicide[.]"  This is the result of intentional fear-mongering and watching too much CNN.  Happened at Richardson Independent School District, Texas.  [Video clip]

The Little Café That Almost Could.  [Scroll down]  An unusually honest New York Times article from March 2020 told us just how Democrats do think — or, more precisely, don't think.  The story shared the results of a comprehensive Gallup survey on COVID a year into the pandemic.  To its humble credit, the Times owned up to the paradox contained in those results.  For many liberals, wrote the Times, Covid had become "another example of the modern Republican Party's hostility to facts and evidence."  Yet on the one defining question for which the answer was knowable and provable, liberals proved appallingly ignorant.  That question read, "What are the chances someone with COVID must be hospitalized?"  The correct answer was 1-5 percent.  Yet 41 percent of Democrats said more than 50 percent, and another 28 percent of Democrats said more than 20 percent.  Think about these numbers.  Aided and abetted by the major media, public health officials persuaded nearly 70 percent of Democrats that COVID was massively more dangerous than it actually is.  Republicans did considerably better on this question, but not well enough to brag.  Too many Republicans believe their health officials and rely on major media.

Norway Celebrates End of Coronavirus Restrictions.  The people of Norway celebrated the end of coronavirus restrictions on Sunday [9/26/2021] after an abrupt announcement from the prime minister.  According to the Associated Press (AP) the celebrations in some of Norway's biggest cities that police were deployed not to punish people for wearing masks but to quell the "dozens of disturbances and violent clashes" as people piled into the streets, bars, restaurants, and nightclubs.

The United States and the West are in the Grip of Delusional Madness.  The politically motivated and unprecedented overreaction to a virus with a 99.5% survival rate was launched in March of 2020, thus unleashing what can best be described as a once-in-a-century fiasco.  Nineteen months later it is impossible to look at the United States and the world and not conclude that this country and much of the West is in the grip, not of a virus, but of delusional madness and malevolence.  The governing elites have been so successful in propagandizing and fear-mongering the populace in many western nations, including the United States, that the virus has made far too many people blind to the madness as they wallow in anxiety, depression, and hopelessness — deliberately and with forethought brought about by these malevolent cabals. [...] The manipulation of the public by the ruling class and its media arm has succeeded as nearly half of the overall American population and a majority of the Millennials (America's most populous generation) are suffering from anxiety or depressive disorders, which inevitably leads to hopelessness.  Having wildly succeeded in fomenting despair, the ruling establishment cannot stop or curtail their tactics as they cannot risk the American people awakening from or becoming aware of their malevolence and delusional madness.  Thus, the never-ending Covid-19 falsehoods and fearmongering in order to maintain and exacerbate anxiety and depression.

New York Medical Providers Begin Shutting Down Services as Vaccine Deadline Hits and Unvaccinated Workers [are] Terminated.  It's one of the stupidest displays of government incompetence and ideological knuckleheadedness in recent history.  A New York state healthcare provider, operating a week ago without issue, is now forced to stop offering healthcare services today.  Why?  Simply because the government has mandated a vaccine requirement that many workers within the industry are uncomfortable with.  The issue is not just a shortage of doctors and nurses.  Everyone including: janitors, cafeteria staff, administrators, phone operators, clerical staff, coders, IT staff, receptionists and customer service staff within the healthcare industry is impacted.  If they didn't take the jab, they're fired.

The Editor says...
And then, after everybody's fired, the state will declare an emergency because they can't find health care workers.  It doesn't make any sense, because the emergency is entirely the state's fault.

Biden Says 97% To 98% Of Americans Need To Be Vaccinated Before Returning To Normal.  Almost 100 percent of Americans need to be vaccinated before the country can safely return to normal, President Joe Biden claimed Monday [9/27/2021].  Biden said that "97%, 98%" is the goal as a country during his much-publicized appointment to receive a COVID-19 booster shot Monday.  He offered no explanation for the number.  Medical experts, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, have predicted that herd immunity would only require 70% to 85% of Americans to be vaccinated.  The White House has been pushing for some vaccinated Americans to receive booster shots.

NY Gov. Kathy Hochul Proclaims Unvaccinated People 'Aren't Listening to God'.  Individuals who have not received the coronavirus vaccine "aren't listening to God," New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) declared during remarks before Brooklyn's Christian Cultural Center on Sunday [9/26/2021].  [Video clip]  "I prayed a lot to God during this time and you know what — God did answer our prayers," Hochul stated, before denigrating those who have not yet received a coronavirus shot. [...] "I need you to be my apostles," the governor added, saying that receiving the treatment is how New Yorkers can "love one another."

After a Murder Over Mask-Wearing, Authorities Are Cracking Down on COVID Skeptics on Telegram.  After a gas station cashier was killed following an argument over mask wearing, the German government started pressuring social media platforms to censor groups over what has become known as "corona misinformation."  The State of Thüringen's Interior Minister George Mair specifically called for the urgent regulation and classification of Telegram as a social network in order to foist new rules on the platform.  Currently the "Netzwerdurchsetzungsgesetz" law in Germany requires social media platforms to delete whatever the government deems as "criminal" content, and even to report them to the Federal Criminal Policy Agency (Bundeskriminalamt).  Platforms such as Telegram, however, have typically been excluded as they are not classified as social networks but as messaging platforms.  Telegram has also been under pressure in the US, for what globalist policy makers call the spread of "misinformation" and for "coordinating" the January 6 "insurrection".

22-year-old "fully vaccinated" champion show jumper may never ride again due to covid jab-induced blood clots.  Imogen Allen was healthy and spry prior to getting "vaccinated" for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19). Now, however, the 22-year-old champion show jumper has developed two massive blood clots in her lungs that could prevent her from ever riding again.  As we have come to expect, the mainstream media is calling Allen's clots "an incredibly rare reaction," even though it is one of the most common adverse effects to occur post-jab.  According to reports, Allen was taking contraceptives at the time when she got injected with Fauci Flu shots.  This, the corporate media is insinuating, could be the real cause behind Allen's newly formed blood clots.

Pro Tennis Player Ends Season After Covid Vaccine Left Him With 'Violent Pain': 'Suddenly I Cannot Train, I Cannot Play'.  Tennis pro Jeremy Chardy, 34, says he may never play the sport again after Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine reportedly left him suffering major bouts of pain.  Speaking to Agence-France Presse, the French 2020 olympian explained he began experiencing violently painful, debilitating health effects immediately after taking the vaccine.

The Symptoms of Our Insanity.  When did we become a nation of socialist AOCs wearing "Tax the Rich" dresses to $35,000-a-ticket celebrity galas, without mandatory masks, while being served by masked servants — a now tired script from the Obama birthday bash crowd to the grandees at the Emmys?

Australia's Chief Health Officer Completely Dashes Any Hope the Country Will Return to Normal One Day.  While speaking about the vaccination rates in New South Wales, Australian chief health officer Kerry Chant expressed optimism that they'd soon reach a 90 percent vaccination rate for the 16 and over population.  Even still, however, she quickly poured cold water on the idea of life returning to normal ever again.  "We will not be going back to pre-COVID levels.  We are always going to have to be mindful that COVID exists," she said.  "We're going to have to engage with booster shots, we're going to have to engage with advice from time to time when we see outbreaks.  We're going to have to respond, so it's not going to go back to normal, we can't deny that we have to live with COVID."  [Tweet]

The Symptoms of Our Insanity.  The nominal head of the COVID-19 administration task force has been forced to admit under oath that he directed the U.S. government to route, through a close associate and third-party medical group, hundreds of thousands of dollars of American research funding to the Chinese Communist-controlled Wuhan virology lab, the likely ground zero of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Yet Dr. Anthony Fauci would strenuously deny under oath that such funding enhanced gain-of-function virology research, despite clear evidence and agreement in the scientific community that it did.  Fauci, in addition, would concede that for over a year he has denied any connection between the pandemic and ongoing efforts at the Wuhan lab where the Chinese military played a prominent role in overseeing viral research.  At various times during the pandemic, Fauci would praise the role of the Chinese government in dealing with the plague, dismiss initially the need for a travel ban to prevent spread of the virus, urge Americans not to wear masks, to wear masks, and at times even to wear two masks.

New York's decline picks up the pace.  As I write this, I can no longer even imagine a world in which the news of the day, in every blog, newspaper, and media outlet, isn't dominated by the Chi Com Fauci Flu.  It seems like, no matter how many people get the shot or how many children are suffocated by their masks, the nightmare will never end.  There is no fixed date on the horizon when the "pandemic" will be over.  I am reminded of Frederick Douglass's writing that "the limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."  In New York, we are entering our second autumn [...] with a new ruler who is turning out to be much worse than her predecessor.  Who would ever have thought that Kathy Hochul could make us long for the good ole days under Killer Cuomo?  I have been politically active for many years and have never seen such a brutal takeover, even in this corrupt oligarchy.  The Demo-Marxists must have planted her years ago as a Trojan Horse for the ruling party.

Broadway folks bragged about forging COVID tests to go to Tonys parties.  At Sunday night's [9/26/2021] Tony Awards, Broadway put on a united front about wearing masks in theaters for the safety of audiences and performers alike.  "Everyone here is vaxxed and tested, and everyone is wearing a mask," host Leslie Odom Jr. said as he walked by celebs like Bernadette Peters and Lin-Manuel Miranda.  "Every Broadway theater will look like this for a while, and that's OK."  But away from the glare of the cameras at the Winter Garden Theater, the lecturing stopped cold.  Up in the mezzanine bar, as Jennifer Holliday was brilliantly belting out her classic "And I Am Telling You" from the musical "Dreamgirls" onstage, I overheard a tuxedoed man loudly discussing the hot afterparty for "Slave Play" at Neuehouse, which appropriately was requiring proof of vaccination and a negative COVID test to attend.  "My assistant found a picture online of a BinaxNow test that was negative, and sent it," one said with a laugh, encouraging his friends to do the same.

Pfizer CEO: Life Can Return To Normal in a Year but Only if You're Vaccinated.  Pfizer's CEO Albert Bourla has some good news.  You can get back to living a normal life in about a year, but only if you inject his product into your veins.  Appearing on ABC's "This Week," Bourla was asked to comment on what Moderna's CEO said the previous week about the pandemic ending in a year.  He couldn't help but agree.  "I agree that, within a year, I think we will be able to come back to normal life," Bourla said.  "I don't think this means that variants will not continue coming, and I don't think this means that we should be able to live our lives ... without having vaccinations."  Bourla did predict, however, that new variants will continue to emerge, but don't worry, he'll have the vaccines you need to inject into yourself to keep you safe and you'll be able to inject yourself yearly.

Supply Chain Disruption Update.  All across the world, supply chains that were disrupted by Flu Manchu lockdowns don't seem to have fully recovered.  Maybe it's because some political entities are still doing lockdowns, or maybe it's because vaccine mandates are making critical worker shortages worse.

Pfizer CEO says life should be 'back to normal' within a year but refuses to rule out lifelong re-vaccinations.  Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said Sunday [9/26/2021] that the U.S. should return to normal within the year as his COVID-19 booster was approved for the elderly and other higher risk communities.  'Finally, Moderna's CEO said this week that the pandemic is on course to be over in about a year.  Do you agree with that?' ABC This Week host George Stephanapoulos asked Bourla on Sunday.  'I agree that, within a year, I think we will be able to come back to normal life,' he concurred.

[#1] Well, at least they're no longer promising that we'll be back to normal in a couple of weeks, but "within a year" is equally unbelievable, now that we know such predictions are wishful thinking at best (and deceptive appeasment at worst).  Surely Australia won't be "back to normal" in less than 25 years, even if everybody's healthy — which they are already!  The tourist industry is finished, the citizens can't trust the police, and the next election should be really interesting, if it's not an outright sham.  [#2] Can you believe any statement made by a pharmaceutical company official?  After they made so much money in the last 18 months, do you really think they're going to go "back to normal" next year and stop pushing universal injections of one drug or another — for which they have a patent?  When you watch TV, do you ever wonder why there's an advertisement for some kind of prescription drug in every commercial break?  Either a drug for you or for your dog.  The pharmaceutical companies exist to invent and sell drugs; and in order to sell drugs, they have to convince you that you need them.  If you can't be convinced, the government will gladly assist by making the drugs mandatory.

'Fauci' earnings mystery:  No info on box office take for gushing documentary about COVID czar.  Documentaries often earn a fraction of what their fictional counterparts generate, at least those without the names "Moore" or "D'Souza" attached.  "Fauci," a film detailing the scientific life of the nation's preeminent infectious disease expert, appeared to be an exception.  Dr. Anthony Fauci has his detractors, particularly on the political right, but he's still the biggest name in medical science thanks to his leadership on the COVID-19 pandemic and near-constant media presence.  The timing of the film's Sept. 10 limited release, in cities including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, D.C. and New Orleans, seemed fortuitous given the aggressive Delta variant.  Except we're still waiting on the box office tally.

Black Lives Matter leader calls Bill de Blasio's vaccine mandate 'modern day freedom papers'.  A leader of the Greater New York chapter of the Black Lives Matter movement is chastising New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio over a COVID-19 vaccine mandate and vaccine passport process for residents, equating it to "modern day freedom papers."  Chivona Newsome, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter Greater NY who also ran as a candidate for New York's 15th Congressional District in 2020, spoke out against the "racist" mandate in a statement to Fox News.  "Although Mayor Bill De Blasio ran on progressives values, nothing in his tenure will attest to his campaign promises," Newsome said.  "The September 13th vaccine mandate is racist and specifically targets Black New Yorkers.  The vaccination passports are modern day Freedom Papers, which limit the free will of Black people."

It's time to end vaccination thuggery.  The evidence seems to point to a possibility that rather than stopping Covid, widespread vaccination is driving dangerous mutations of Covid.  Undaunted, vaccination bullies are becoming ever more aggressive in their demands that everyone gets vaccinated.  Rather than testing for infection and treating the sick, the call now is to use booster shots against the new strains that have cropped up.  It's true that diseases in the past have been eradicated with mass vaccination.  Diseases like measles, smallpox, and polio were eliminated from the United States.  However, those were diseases that confer lifelong immunity once a person recovers from them.  A disease that constantly mutates and causes reinfection cannot be eradicated, whether through natural immunity or vaccination.  We can no more eliminate Covid than we can eliminate the common cold.

Mother Jones says natural immunity doesn't exist, calls it a "dangerous theory".  Does your body have a built-in immune system that keeps you protected against disease?  Not according to Kiera Butler of Mother Jones, who claims that natural immunity is a right-wing "conspiracy theory."  Butler says she worries that "anti-vaxxers" are running wild with this "dangerous theory," causing it to go mainstream.  In her view, the only way to gain any immunity at all is to take Big Pharma "vaccines."

NY Times's Alarmist Covid Reporter Makes Up 'Surge' From School Reopenings.  Tuesday's [9/21/2021] New York Times lead story by Apoorva Mandavilli on Pfizer pushing to get its coronavirus vaccine approved for children was filled with the reporter's typical coronavirus scaremongering.  This time, it was about the dangers it posed to children:  "Pfizer Says Shot Safely Benefits Children 5 to 11 — Seeking F.D.A. Approval — Urgency as Cases Rise in Young — Trial Review May Take Weeks."  Mandavilli's freaked-out reporting was sadly valuable in helping keep schools shut around the country last year, and it's gotten no better.

Do Vaccinated Pregnant Women in Their First or Second Trimester have an 81.8% Chance of Miscarriage?  You have to wonder why universities are suddenly investigating if the vaccines are causing abortions.  The government appears to have been playing around with the numbers to hide the fact that there may be a problem with COVID vaccines causing spontaneous abortions.  I have reported that one staff member, who is 25, will not get vaccinated because her vaccinated friends have experienced completely distorted menstrual cycles.

Covid Hoax:  Study reveals 40-45% of coronavirus hospitalizations are actually due to other causes.  Big Pharma and mainstream media have made it seem like getting vaccinated is the key to ending the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).  Now, government officials are also mandating vaccinations even among people who don't wish to get inoculated, forcing some to choose between losing their jobs or getting vaccinated against their will.  However, study reveals that the recorded rates of coronavirus hospitalizations have been exaggerated — no doubt to strike fear into an already panicking and misinformed public.  The shocking study, called "The COVID-19 Hospitalization Metric in the Pre- and Post-vaccination Eras as a Measure of Pandemic Severity:  A Retrospective, Nationwide Cohort Study," has examined admissions data of patients in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare system from March 1 to June 30.  While the study is available for preprint only, meaning it still hasn't been peer-reviewed, it clearly shows that there are people trying to manipulate data about hospitalization rates throughout America.

3,000 NYC Teachers Asked for Vaccination Exemptions, Union Says.  Around 3,000 New York City teachers have asked for medical and religious exemptions from the city's COVID-19 vaccination mandate, according to the city's teachers union.  The city requires all school staff to be vaccinated or exempted by midnight on Sept. 27.  The union, United Federation of Teachers (UFT) said on Sept. 24 that 90 [to] 95 percent of teachers have received the vaccine.  That would leave about 4,000 [to] 8,000 unvaccinated, including those who have asked for the exemption.  The exemptions are largely medical, UFT President Michael Mulgrew told reporters during a Sept. 24 teleconference.  He didn't specify how many have been granted.  Those rejected have an option to appeal, but Mulgrew said he didn't know how many have done so.  With a pending appeal, a teacher can't participate in instruction, but gets exempted from the mandate, which requires those unvaccinated after the deadline to either leave their jobs with a severance package or take unpaid leave.

Police, Fire, Military Being Gutted by Vaccine Mandate:  Is This China's Plan to Destroy the USA?  The bad news is that the country is on fire, thanks to the brain-dead, feeble, old man with dementia (aka President Joe Biden).  If you don't believe me, just see the 14,000 Haitian migrants hiding under a bridge in Texas, now released into America by Biden.  That should help the COVID-19 pandemic.  But the worst is yet to come.  I'm referring to Biden's vaccine mandate.  This is the most dangerous threat to our national security in history.  As a nationally syndicated radio host, I get thousands of emails a week.  The ones I'm getting right now are downright tragic.  I'm getting heartfelt letters of anguish from police officers, firefighters, paramedics, nurses, corrections officers, active-duty military, military fighter jet pilots, even Navy SEALs.  They're all getting ready to quit or be fired because of vaccine mandates.  They do not want the vaccine.  Even if they have to give up their pensions.  Even if they are one year away from retirement and a six-figure pension.

'Dozens' of Massachusetts State Troopers Submit Resignations Over Vaccine Mandate.  Dozens of Massachusetts state troopers have submitted their resignations ahead of a deadline to comply with the state's mandatory COVID-19 vaccination mandate.  "Many of these troopers are going to be returning to their previous municipal police departments within the state that allow for regular testing and masks," State Police Association of Massachusetts President Michael Cherven said in a statement.  "To date, dozens of troopers have already submitted their resignation paperwork.  "Throughout COVID, we have been on the front lines protecting the citizens of Massachusetts and beyond," he added.  "Simply put, all we are asking for are the same basic accommodations that countless other departments have provided to their first responders, and to treat a COVID-related illness as a line of duty injury."

Federal Judge Blocks New York City's School COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate.  New York City's COVID-19 vaccine mandate for teachers and other Department of Education staffers is on pause after a federal judge late on Sept. 24 granted a request to temporarily block it.  Plaintiffs, a group of teachers, asked for a temporary injunction, pending review by a three-judge panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.  U.S. Appeals Court Judge Joseph Bianco, a George W. Bush nominee, granted the request in a one-page order.  The panel will now decide whether to impose an injunction pending appeal or allow the mandate to take effect.

The Big Pharma "Shell Game" Tricking Our Military Into Mandatory Vaccinations.  Last month, Revolver exclusively published a paper by Navy CDR J.H. Furman, warning that the mandatory COVID-19 vaccination of the entire Navy could constitute a national security threat.  Now, Furman has produced another paper, describing what he calls a "shell game" by which other U.S. government agencies, and several pharmaceutical companies are tricking the Navy into embracing mandatory vaccination, at great risk to the United States.

Pfizer stands to make $26 BILLION from COVID-19 vaccine boosters as the US approves third dose for all adults over 65.  COVID-19 vaccine makers stand to make billions of dollars after US health officials approved booster shots for older and vulnerable Americans while manufacturers' stock prices continue to rise during the pandemic.  The Centers for Disease Control late on Thursday endorsed third shots of the Pfizer vaccine for all Americans 65 and older, along with tens of millions of younger people at higher risk of coronavirus because of their health or jobs.  The forecast for Moderna's 2022 revenue has jumped 35 percent since President Joe Biden laid out his booster plan in mid-August, though Moderna booster shots are not yet approved.

Geert Vanden Bossche and Robert Malone MD Discuss COVID-19, Scientific Investigation, the Viral Revolution, and Political Media.  An interesting discussion between two of the world's prominent voices Geert Vanden Bossche, expert vaccine developer (Belgium); and Robert Malone MD, the inventor of mRNA vaccines (USA).  The meeting is hosted by Dr. Phillip McMillan (UK), who previously interviewed Vanden Bossche and Malone on separate occasions.  This video interview is an update on the prior conversations and predictions, along with a discussion by the two leading voices in the scientific community who urge caution.  Vanden Bossche takes the current Israeli data and shows how the widespread vaccination rate is creating pressure on the virus to mutate into variants with higher levels of contagion.  The unvaccinated group has been keeping the pressure down by defeating the virus and carrying natural immunity.  However, as the unvaccinated population is increasingly made smaller, the pressure on the virus to mutate increases.  Subsequently, these mutations stay at higher or more effective levels of infection.  [Video clip]

NYS workers who are fired for not getting vaccinated won't be eligible for unemployment insurance, governor announces.  New York state workers who are fired for refusing to get vaccinated are not eligible for unemployment insurance, Gov. Kathy Hochul said on Saturday [[9/25/2021] — just two days before the deadline for workers to get the jab.  New York City teachers and state health care workers in hospitals and nursing homes have to prove that they received at least their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by Monday.  The only exception to the vaccine mandate is a valid, doctor-approved request for medical accommodation.

The Tyrannical Scenes out of Australia Grow Darker and More Disturbing.  What's going on in Australia may be the most disturbing story of the year.  A once, somewhat flourishing democracy has been reduced to a tyrannical medical state in which people are violently abused by government authorities for daring to walk outside.  All in the name of fighting COVID-19, of course.  Unfortunately for those that live Down Under, there is no end in sight, and the scenes are only growing darker.  [Tweets with video clips]  Both of those videos purport to show people being violently assaulted by police for the sin of not wearing a mask outdoors.  The fact that masks are ineffective outside (just as they are everywhere else) doesn't matter.  The state says you have to wear one, and if you don't, physical abuse will follow.  There appear to be no lines whatsoever, when it comes to the force being used by the police in Australia.

Report: Researchers Working on Antiviral Coronavirus Pills.  Scientists are working on antiviral pills to treat the Chinese coronavirus, a prospect that could come to fruition "within the next several months."  Researchers are working on oral antiviral drugs to treat the coronavirus as the Biden administration continues to push vaccines and vaccine booster shots for those eligible.  Clinical trials of the drugs are underway, and results are expected in the coming months.  "I think that we will have answers as to what these pills are capable of within the next several months," Carl Dieffenbach, director of the Division of AIDS at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said, according to NBC News.

Stating the obvious:
COVID-19 vaccine boosters could mean billions for drugmakers.  Billions more in profits are at stake for some vaccine makers as the U.S. moves toward dispensing COVID-19 booster shots to shore up Americans' protection against the virus.  How much the manufacturers stand to gain depends on how big the rollout proves to be.

Public Bureaucracies' Deceptions about COVID.  As recently reported by Project Veritas, if vaccines are dangerous, then HHS will not record it.  If vaccines are dangerous, then OSHA will tell employers to not record it.  In this way, OSHA, FDA, HHS and CDC can claim that vaccines are safe and effective because there is no data to the contrary.  But if vaccines are not truly dangerous, then why engage in this deception? [...] What better way to make certain the truth never emerges than to never record it?  Pfizer's Phase II/III vaccine trial and six-month follow-up suggest that their vaccine will kill 3 people through cardiac side effects to save 1 life from COVID (over 6 months).  Although their data clearly indicates this, and although 1 of 3 COVID deaths were in the vaccine group, the study authors conclude that their vaccine is safe and prevents death from COVID.  Perhaps they hoped that no one would read past the abstract or view the supplemental materials?  This vaccine will kill 3 healthy, young people to rescue one geriatric patient from COVID and give them a few more months to live.  How could the FDA approve this bad deal?

The Forcible Conversion to COVIDism.  By now, even progressives are aware that the restrictions imposed by COVID-19 hygiene rituals are onerous. [...] It strikes one that the ever-changing rituals pronounced by such entities as the CDC and WHO have become not only arbitrary and increasingly revelatory of dubious and ever-changing science, but also evocative more of religious practices than of rational, scientific measures. [...] It is also perfectly clear the governing priestly elite foisting their quasi-religious rituals on the masses are miraculously immune from a virus that discerns who are the pure sheep of the church of COVIDism and who are the deplorably diseased goats.  The high priests partying at the Obama birthday bash on Martha's Vineyard, at the Met gala, and at the Emmys do not have to wear masks.  Nor do they have to observe the rules of social distancing once reserved for lepers and others deemed unclean.  But the unhealthy goats, most of them congregated in churches, the middle class, and the military, do have to follow the regulations and rituals.

Every Tragedy Caused by Government Is Done with the Best of Intentions.  A prediction:  When it becomes incontrovertible that forced vaccinations and lockdowns have done more harm than good, all the people in power who have caused this harm will excuse their totalitarian madness by claiming they "had the best of intentions." [...] It will be the latest painful example in a long line of human tragedies that arose only because the ruling elite controlling the levers of government responded to a perceived problem in the world by exploiting it for their own enrichment, re-engineering it to become more toxic and painful for ordinary people than it otherwise would have been, and then applauding their own efforts as "heroic" and "wise" examples of good governance, contrary to all evidence suggesting otherwise. [...] Government only exists to "solve crises," so if one does not arise naturally, it is imperative that those with power find something — anything — to justify why they have more power than you.  Now what about our current crisis?  Are we in a better or worse position since it began? [...] Does it make sense to begin mandating faux vaccines to our healthy youth when the risk of side-effects often outweighs any potential benefits?  Does it make sense for pregnant women to be injected with a serum before the potential hazards to their babies are known?  Does it make sense to force people who have already recovered from the virus and who now have robust immunity to undergo experimental treatment, nonetheless?

The science surrounding COVID has been hijacked for political purposes.  People recovered from the disease are pushed to get vaccinated, even though they have a natural immunity that is stronger than vaccine immunity.  People are required to wear masks even though masks are essentially useless for preventing infection.  People that die are reported as dying of COVID even though they died of something else.  The government demands that children be vaccinated even though they are naturally resistant to the disease and suffer disturbing side effects from the vaccine.  Schools are closed for no good reason.

Over 3,000 Doctors and Scientists Sign Declaration Accusing COVID Policy-Makers of 'Crimes Against Humanity'.  A "Physicians' Declaration" produced by an international alliance of physicians and medical scientists strongly condemns the global strategy to treat COVID, accusing policy-makers of potential "crimes against humanity" for preventing physicians from providing life-saving treatments for their patients and suppressing open scientific discussion.  The document states that "one size fits all" treatment recommendations have resulted in needless illness and death.  As of 1:00 Friday afternoon, the declaration had garnered over 3,100 signatures from doctors and scientists around the world.  A group of physicians and scientists met in Rome, Italy earlier this month for a three day Global Covid Summit to speak "truth to power about Covid pandemic research and treatment."

'Sky News' Documentary:  What Really Happened in Wuhan?  In October 2019, the World Military Games were held in Wuhan, China.  Reports emerged of athletes becoming sick with a respiratory virus and symptoms that are now well recognized as COVID-19.  It would be months before the U.S. took action, but evidence strongly suggests that U.S. intelligence had knowledge of a problem occurring in Wuhan in November 2019.  If they had reacted quickly, said David Asher, former COVID-19 investigator for the U.S. State Department, "The whole world would have been different.  It would have been like stopping 9/11 before it happened."  He was speaking to Australian journalist and "Sky News" host Sharri Markson, whose explosive documentary, "What Really Happened in Wuhan?" features multiple experts who believe beyond any reasonable doubt that SARS-CoV-2 leaked from a laboratory in Wuhan.  The illness circulating at the World Military Games, among athletes who later returned home to more than 100 different countries, is just one piece of the evidence that, cumulatively, may solve the mystery of COVID-19's origins.

Political Appointee CDC Director Rochelle Walensky Overrides FDA Vaccine Advisory Committee and Authorizes Pfizer Booster Shots.  Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky has overridden the recommendations of the FDA vaccine advisory committee and authorized booster shots for individuals who took the Pfizer vaccine.  The boosters are for anyone who took the Pfizer vaccine six months ago or more, in addition to all those with underlying medical health conditions that make them susceptible to the COVID-19 variants.  Additionally, all healthcare workers and basically all those who were previously designated as "essential workers", including those in the food supply chain, are authorized to receive the vaccine.  According to Joe Biden's speech that followed the unilateral declaration of the CDC, this decision means, "60 million Americans are now eligible for a booster six months after their second shot.  And up to 20 million who will receive their — received their earlier Pfizer shot at least six months ago are eligible today."  The unilateral booster declaration does not include authorization for Moderna or Johnson and Johnson, only Pfizer.  Apparently, the Pfizer lobbying group has deeper pockets and is more politically connected.

More than 400 D.C. Fire, EMS workers claim religious exemption from COVID-19 shots:  Report.  More than 400 D.C. Fire and EMS employees are seeking a religious exemption for COVID-19 vaccines, according to reports.  Out of the more than 2,100 department workers, 419 of them are filing for the exemption with the city, NBC4 Washington reported.  "They're requests at this point," Fire Chief John Donnelly told the news outlet.  "They will be ruled on by the Department of Health.  We don't rule on them.  There's a process for that."

Australian Stormtroopers Violently Tackle And Arrest Man For Wearing An Orange Sweatshirt.  This man was mistaken for being with the construction workers union protest because he was wearing an orange top in Melbourne.  Construction workers took to the streets for a 5th day straight after the government demanded they all get vaccinated to be allowed to work.  Protests have become more and more violent so the local government have brought in the stormtroopers to harass and terrorize any and everyone who even looks like they are part of the group.  The man was caught up in that net.  [Video clip]

From pandemic to endemic: foreign countries begin recognizing COVID panic porn is not useful.  While the Biden-Harris administration continues to demonize those who do not wish to be human guinea pigs in a massive experiment with gene therapies and encourages mask mandates and other symbolic but largely ineffective measures to control a virus, a few foreign countries are recognizing that viral illnesses follow a predictable course as they mutate. [...] Norway has a high level of vaccination — 76% of Norwegians have had at least one shot, and 67% have had 2 — and the government encourages its populace to get fully vaxed.  But in Croatia, President Zoran Milanović doesn't buy into the vax frenzy, as Citizen Free Press reports:  [Video clip]

NY prepares for health care staff shortage as COVID vaccine mandate looms.  New York officials are prepared to call in medically trained National Guard members and retirees to address potential staffing shortages caused by an approaching COVID-19 vaccine mandate for health care workers, Gov. Kathy Hochul said Saturday.  Hochul released a plan to address what she called preventable staffing shortages in hospitals and other health care facilities once the mandate takes effect Monday [9/27/2021].

Biden opposes honorable discharge guarantee for troops who refuse COVID vaccine.  President Joe Biden came out this week in opposition to the military guaranteeing service members who refuse the mandatory COVID-19 vaccine will receive an honorable discharge.  On Tuesday [9/21/2021], the Biden White House submitted a Statement of Administration Policy voicing Biden's support and opposition for various provisions in the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act.  One key provision Biden voiced opposition to would guarantee U.S. military service members will be allowed to take an honorable discharge if they refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccines.  The provision of the 2022 defense budget, titled Section 716, was introduced by Rep. Mark Green (R-TN).  The provision states, "A member of an Armed Force under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of a military department subject to discharge on the basis of the member choosing not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine may only receive an honorable discharge."

When will Chicago or Illinois lift its mask mandate?  Just 29 people are hospitalized with COVID-related illness in Chicago, a city with a population of 2.7 million people.  Despite the fact that just .001 percent of Chicago residents are hospitalized with COVID-19, the city's indoor mask mandate remains, with no word on what specific circumstances will trigger its demise.  The indoor mask mandate went into effect on August 20 in Chicago.  Health officials said it was because the average number of new daily cases surpassed 400.

The Editor says...
Once again, the number of "cases" is meaningless by itself.  How many of those "cases" were people without symptoms who happened to test positive for Covid?  How many are so sick that they require hospitalization?

After Weeks of Promises in the Press, Where Are the Football Super-Spreader Events?  There may be no better illustration that the press abhors positive pandemic news than the reality that America is returning to normalcy in a relatively safe fashion.  This month, both college and professional football teams returned to the field of play.  The difference — the fans were also permitted to return to their seats and cheer their teams on, and this upset plenty of the correct people.  Throughout the media, we had commentary on the dangers this posed, with hectoring voices noting how few of those in attendance had masks on.  One of the more amusing comments was seen on CNN, where Ana Cabrera was clearly shaken by the images.  "I just can't get over the pictures of those outdoor stadiums," said Cabrera, visibly rendered by the visuals of fans attending games.

The vaccination noose around our necks.  The COVID police have tightened the noose around the necks of the unvaccinated.  No longer do you have to wear a useless mask only indoors (unless you're London Breed, the Mayor of San Francisco, or partying with her).  This new noose is inflexible. [...] Can you tell whether you're coming down with a cold or the flu or even dread COVID by observing your symptoms?  Getting feverish, have a sore throat, bodily aches and pains, or shortness of breath?  Would you, in these fraught times, ignore symptoms, or would you stay home like a responsible adult and care for yourself?  Our government doesn't trust any of us to make that sort of decision.  It doesn't trust us to evaluate our own health, it doesn't trust the millions of people who already suffered through COVID to have antibodies, and it doesn't trust that the rest of us can weigh our risks from the virus versus the risks from the vaccine, and intelligently come to a decision.

Oregon Firefighters protest regulations for unvaccinated Corvallis first responders.  Corvallis' new directives for unvaccinated city firefighters brought an eclectic group of Oregonians to the front of City Hall in protest of rules they say are both discriminatory and punishments instead of accommodations.  Firefighters from nearly a dozen organizations stood shoulder to shoulder with a homeschool family from Harlan, an environmentalist from Eugene and a former Green Party senatorial candidate.  They expressed their concerns centered around what several called "excessive" requirements for four Corvallis firefighters who have filed vaccine exemptions with the city.  At issue are rules handed down by the city of Corvallis that require exempt firefighters to segregate themselves during meal time and to wear a N95 masks at all times in the station, including when they sleep.

The Editor says...
Requiring someone to wear a mask while sleeping makes no sense.  It's obvious that the city bureaucrats are just testing the limits of the firefighters' patience.  They're just trying to see how much the firemen will tolerate before staging a rebellion.  It's a microcosm of the world's experience over the last 18 months:  How much will we tolerate before we resist?

Disgraceful Timeline of Biden's Badly Bungled Booster Boosterism.  No one has done more to undermine confidence in the coronavirus vaccine than His Fraudulency Joe Biden.  And this, of course (as I will explain below), is deliberate.  Anything he can do to keep unvaccinated Trump voters unvaccinated, he's going to do.  There's just no other explanation.  And few things have undermined faith in the vaccine, as well as the institutions behind the vaccine, more than Biden's fiasco fiesta of anti-science calls for coronavirus vaccine booster shots.  Here's the timeline (so far): [...]

Report: California Put Coronavirus-Infected Inmates, Including Illegal Aliens, into Communities.  A San Francisco newspaper published a sympathetic feature about an illegal alien from Cambodia who had coronavirus when he was released from California's San Quentin State Prison last July. [...] San Quentin had 2,258 cases during the pandemic, and 43 of those people were released after testing positive, according to the [San Francisco] Chronicle.

Oregon's statistics highlight the folly behind mask mandates.  If you have the right mask and use it in the right way, it can protect you.  Well-fitting N95 masks thrown out after every use may well protect against viruses.  Paper surgical masks are useless against viruses.  Likewise, a cloth mask, which people repeatedly use for days or weeks, is probably an effective bacteria and virus vector, rather than a protector.  If you doubt me, just look at the data out of Oregon, where Gov. Kate Brown's latest totalitarian mask mandates coincided with a huge increase in COVID cases.

Fauci: Psychopath or narcissist?  Anthony Fauci has been in the limelight for over 18 months now.  During that time, he has displayed definite anti-social behavior.  Is he a psychopath, or does he suffer from a narcissistic personality disorder?  It's hard to tell, as a number of traits of one overlap with the other.  Not every psychopath is a serial killer or even physically violent.  Most of them use their superficial charm and ability to lie and manipulate to worm their way into high positions in organizations from corporations to government to bureaucracies, and even the military.

CDC Director's New Decision on Booster Shots Raises Even More Questions.  Earlier this month, Joe Biden got out over his skis and promoted that adults over the age of 16 should get booster shots.  He even said distribution would begin on a certain date, September 20.  [Tweet]  Except the problem was that the FDA wasn't quite on board with it all.  While they endorsed it for those who were 65 years and over, as well as those at high risk of severe disease, they didn't endorse it for everyone else.  That blew up Biden's plans for a huge roll-out.  Two senior FDA officials even quit last month, reportedly over what they felt was a rush to push out the shots for everyone in the country.

Rep. Scott DesJarlais Leads 55 Republican Letter Demanding Action on 'Lifesaving' Coronavirus Antibody Treatments.  Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) led a 55-member letter Thursday, which included House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), calling for the Joe Biden administration to stop cutting off coronavirus antibody treatments to states led by Republican governors, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.  The Biden administration announced last week that they would limit states' abilities to access coronavirus antibody treatments; Texas, Florida, Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, all red states, used 70 percent of all antibody treatment in those seven states.

Ron DeSantis Win:  Judge Grants Temporary Injunction Against Gainesville Vaccine Mandates.  Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and ultimately, Gainesville city employees, scored a victory this week after a judge granted a temporary injunction against the city's vaccine mandate.  Until Wednesday [9/22/2021], Gainseville city employees risked termination if they refused to get vaccinated for the Chinese coronavirus — a rule the city commissioners voted for in August 4-3.  "People who are going to hospitals, the vast vast majority of them haven't been vaccinated," commissioner Adrian Hayes-Santos said at the time.  "I believe we move towards mandating vaccines for our employees so that we can ensure all of our people are healthy, they have a safe workplace, and also for the public," the commissioner added.

The Bidenization of America.  COVID-19 was the great ally of the Democratic campaign: the rabidly Democratic national political media bashed it like a piñata and terrified and shut down the country, inducing the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression; while blaming it all on Trump's contempt for "science."  Even a vaccine would have to be distrusted and avoided if it was sponsored by Trump, Biden and Kamala Harris said; this is the same vaccine that the administration is now attempting to coerce all Americans to accept.  Now the messaging is a Tower of Babel and very few members of the public know what the administration's position is.  It seems to wish to vaccinate the whole population and at the same time to require the whole population to mask and observe social distancing as if it had not been vaccinated.  There are legitimate concerns about vaccination, especially with regard to any long-term negative effects it may have.  The evidence about masks is conflicting.  Instead of leading, the administration is sinking into a quagmire and losing credibility, as have the principal scientists it has always admonished us to follow slavishly.

Let Them Destroy Each Other.  [Scroll down]  Also racist — vaccine mandates!  According to numbers the lib media refuses to report, the biggest group of vaccine skeptics is not those science-hating Trump people.  It's minorities, who frankly have a really good reason for not trusting government doctors who assure them everything is on the up and up.  It doesn't help when rich jerks at the Emmys or on Martha's Vineyard party maskless while demanding you gag your kid — or not allow your kid to go to school at all.  So, when the Karen Caucus of libidinally unsatiated cat ladies get their vaccine passport requirements of their dreams, the hardest hit is... minorities!

Media Test Positive For Corrupt COVID Coverage.  Policymakers and public health officials need to be held accountable for their miserable pandemic failures.  So should the media, which have no interest in objective news, and are following an agenda that is both repulsive and poisonous.  Among the media's favorite stories of the past 18 months are the deaths of the unvaccinated and those who expressed skepticism about the lethality of the Wuhan coronavirus.  A recent example is the death of a 40-year-old California woman, who, according to the British Daily Mail, "regularly posted anti-vax, anti-mask content, proclaiming herself a 'free thinker' who 'questions everything.'"  The mother of four — who also considered herself "unmuzzled" — "had been battling COVID-19 and resulting pneumonia ahead of her passing."  Tragic as her death was, it would not have been covered by the media had she been vaccinated and cheerfully compliant with lockdown and mask rules.  But in the twisted minds of most of today's journalists, it's a story that has to be told to boost their vanity.  They are our moral superiors.

Daszak Admits Fauci Funded Chinese Coronavirus Research at Conference Featuring Hunter Biden-Linked Pandemic Group.  Speaking at the 2017 Consortium of Universities for Global Health conference on a panel alongside Anthony Fauci, EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak admitted his controversial "work on coronaviruses in China" was carried out with "funding through" Fauci's National Institutes of Health agency.  The unearthed conference follows Fauci's repeated attempts to distance his agency from the controversial New York-based non-profit, which, as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant registry shows, used the money to collaborate with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  The National Pulse has previously uncovered footage of Daszak describing the viruses he manipulated as part of his "longtime" collaboration with the Chinese Communist Party-run lab as "killers."

NY Governor Announces All Healthcare Workers Who Refuse Mandatory Vaccine Will Be Replaced With Foreign Workers ASAP.  The deadline for New York healthcare workers to take the mandatory COVID-19 "vaccine" is Monday [9/27/2021].  A significant number of nurses, healthcare workers and those who work within the entire system of healthcare will be leaving the medical industry as a result.  While the potential vacancy rate for healthcare workers is yet undetermined — they have to wait to see how many actually leave — New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced earlier today [9/23/2021] that foreign workers will be hired to replace the U.S. workers who refuse the vaccine.

FDA Employee Caught on Tape Advocating for Nazi-Like Registry for Unvaccinated, and Shooting Blacks With COVID Blow Darts.  A U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) employee was caught on tape advocating for a Nazi-like response to the COVID-19 pandemic, with forced vaccinations, and a registry for all unvaccinated Americans.  In Part Two of Project Veritas' COVID vaccine investigative series, FDA economist Taylor Lee literally called for the United States government to emulate Nazi Germany to force the COVID injections on vaccine skeptics.  "Census goes door-to-door if you don't respond.  So, we have the infrastructure to do it [forced COVID vaccinations].  I mean, it'll cost a ton of money.  But I think, at that point, I think there needs to be a registry of people who aren't vaccinated.  Although that's sounding very Germany," Lee admitted.

Document Reveal:  Covid "vaccines" are shedding deadly spike proteins via "skin-penetrating nanoparticles".  More revelations have emerged to suggest that the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) was cooked up in a lab at least a year and a half prior to its official release towards the end of 2019.  Newly leaked documents show that 18 months before the first cases of the Chinese Virus were reported, researchers working at and tied to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) were trying to procure grant money for genetically engineered (GMO) bat coronaviruses that are capable of infecting humans.  These grant requests clearly explained that "skin-penetrating nanoparticles" containing "novel chimeric spike proteins" were to be used for transforming otherwise bat-only coronaviruses into highly infectious coronaviruses that humans can "catch."

Florida Acquires Monoclonal Antibodies From GlaxoSmithKline After Biden Administration's Rationing.  The state of Florida has obtained thousands of monoclonal antibody treatments to treat COVID-19 from a UK-based company after the Biden administration's abrupt rationing of federally acquired doses.  Florida went to GlaxoSmithKline, which produces monoclonals that haven't yet been bought up by the federal government.  They reached an agreement on about 3,000 doses, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced on Sept. 23.  "That's showing that we're going to leave no stone unturned.  And, if there's somebody that needs a monoclonal antibody treatment, we're going to work hard to get it to them," the Republican told a press conference in Tampa.

DeSantis Comes Through for Florida, After Biden Cut Monoclonal Antibody Treatment Supply.  As we reported previously, the Biden Administration announced they would be rationing the supply of monoclonal antibody therapies from distributors. [...] Biden officials said that this was about "equitable" distribution to the states.  But what this ended up doing was cutting the amount of the treatment that Florida needed, as well as cutting the supply to some of the other red states.  Christina Pushaw, Gov. Ron DeSantis' press secretary blasted the decision.  [Tweet]  Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said this wasn't because of any shortage of the treatment but because the Biden administration didn't like how Florida was not mandating vaccines, that this was "partisan payback" against states like Florida.  He said this was all about control.  [Tweet]

Oakland School District passes vaccine mandate for students 12 and up despite a lack of full FDA approval for kids.  The Oakland Unified School District passed a Covid-19 vaccine mandate for students 12 and older Wednesday [9/22/2021], despite a lack of full approval from the FDA that it is safe for children.  The measure makes it one of the first districts, with its student population of nearly 50,000, in Northern California to pass such a vaccine requirement and follows a similar decision made by the Los Angeles school district — the second largest in the US — earlier this month.  The Piedmont and Hayward districts also passed similar measures Wednesday.

Ron DeSantis has emerged as America's awesome 'shadow president'.  Ron DeSantis has been doing a lot as governor of Florida.  But there's one job that hasn't gotten the attention it deserves:  In many ways, DeSantis is serving as America's shadow president. [...] Unlike a British shadow government, DeSantis has real executive power of his own — not in the federal government, but in his capacity as governor of America's third most populous state.  And he has been doing an excellent job of drawing contrasts between his way and the approach taken by the Biden-Harris administration.  DeSantis was an early opponent of widespread lockdowns.  This got him called a murderer by many national pundits and politicians.  Yet his approach was vindicated:  Despite predictions of doom, the Sunshine State did much better than lockdown-heavy states like California and New York, not only in terms of disease, but also economically.  Now Florida's biggest economic "problem" is the influx of people fleeing from states with more intrusive COVID policies.

Howard Zucker, NY health commissioner who oversaw Cuomo nursing home scandal, resigns.  Embattled state Health Commissioner Howard Zucker will step down from his position as soon as a replacement can be found, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced Thursday [9/23/2021].  Zucker was a key figure in the administration of disgraced Gov. Andrew Cuomo, where critics charged he played a central role in its efforts to minimize and disguise the pandemic's death toll across the state and in its nursing homes.  "He understands that, in this time, I've wanted to take the first 45 days to assemble a new team going forward," Hochul said, announcing Zucker's departure.  "That process is ongoing, and he understands and he respects that."

Speaking of misinformation, Nikki Minaj is the problem?  In January 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) repeated the Chinese propaganda that COVID wouldn't spread human to human, yet it has never been silenced.  How many deaths did that misinformation cause?  In February 2020, NIH bureaucrat Dr. Anthony Fauci essentially said COVID-19 was nothing to worry about.  Why hasn't he been silenced for that misinformation since it caused so much harm?  Why do most of the media continue to treat whatever Fauci says as gospel?  Where are the scientific reports that say masks in schools provided better results than schools with no masks?  The answer is that there are no facts to support the masks.  Today, even people with vaccines are told to wear masks indoors, except if you go to the Met Gala or the Emmys.  Then you are special.

I Fear Leftist Solutions Much More Than Actual Problems.  America's founding fathers named three essential rights to which all men were entitled:  Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  It's as profound as it is simple.  At this very moment, though, all three of these fundamental, God-given rights are under a full assault by the left. [...] Covid is the latest and most obvious monstrosity of tyrannical impulse to squelch all three elemental rights.  Life has been snuffed out through the betrayal of practicing science; were it not for the censorship of readily-available treatments and intentional murder of the elderly, how many people would have been rescued from being political pawns?  The body count on Democrats and their accomplices is immense.  The vaccine is now killing more than it is saving.  Likewise, many individual liberties disappeared altogether in the name of the "greater good" and "the science."

Weaponizing Psychiatry:  Authorities Calling People Mentally Ill, Forcing Them to See Shrinks for Opposing COVID Policy.  [Scroll down]  The Soviet Union was infamous for it (there just must be something wrong with you if you oppose enlightened state ideology, after all), and, chillingly, it's now emerging in the United States.  So asserted Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson, reporting last night on a student at a prestigious law school who dared question his institution's irrational mask mandate.  For one thing, the face-diaper requirement didn't apply to professors; apparently, coronavirus spares those with more degrees than a thermometer (and now we know why Ph.D.'s are the education-level-defined group least likely to be "vaccinated").  What then befell this hapless student, whose identity and school are currently being kept anonymous, was shocking.

Rand Paul says Biden is killing Americans by depriving them of Regeneron.  The son of former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) made an appearance in Butler County, Ky., the other day to talk about the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) and the Biden regime's stifling of monoclonal antibody treatment.  Sen. Rand Paul, who lives in Kentucky, explained that "president" Joe Biden, as well as television "doctor" Tony Fauci, are condemning some patients to death by depriving them of access to REGEN-COV (casirivimab and imdevimab antibody cocktail), a "passive vaccine" drug cocktail made by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc.  In many of the "red" states where Chinese Virus "vaccines" are not as widely accepted, Republican officials are making Regeneron, as the drug is also called, available in "IV tents," as Sen. Paul calls them.  In other states, however, Regeneron is not as widely available, and that has to do with the federal government refusing to talk about it.  "I've never heard Dr. Fauci on television talk anything about the treatment," Sen. Paul lamented during his presentation.

Leaked Documents Reveal Proposal by Daszak's Organization for Developing COVID-Like Viruses.  New documents detail how Peter Daszak's EcoHealth Alliance and China's Wuhan Institute of Virology were planning to use gain-of-function experiments to artificially insert "human-specific cleavage sites" into coronaviruses in order to increase their ability to infect human cells.  The newly released documents, which are part of a funding proposal submitted to the Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) program in 2018, detail a blueprint for the creation of a COVID-19-like virus.  The ostensible goal of the research was to get ahead of nature by predicting whether viruses might evolve over time to acquire these enhanced traits.  When COVID-19 first emerged, some scientists were puzzled that the virus had a human-specific adaptation at the cleavage site.  A study in the science journal Nature noted that the COVID-19 virus "exhibited the highest binding to human (h)ACE2 of all the species tested."  It was this human-specific binding feature of COVID-19, absent in coronaviruses of the same phylogenetic tree, that has distinguished it from past outbreaks.  The virus's unique ability to bind to human cells makes it highly transmissible and has enabled its rapid spread across the globe.

Project Veritas Undercover Cam Catches FDA Official Talking About Blow Darting Blacks With The Vax, Turning US Into Nazi Germany.  Project Veritas released the second video of its COVID vaccine investigative series today exposing U.S. Food and Drug Administration [FDA] economist, Taylor Lee, who was recorded calling for forced COVID vaccinations and a registry for all unvaccinated Americans.  Lee said that U.S. Government policy could emulate Nazi Germany when it comes to the COVID vaccine.  [Video clip]

Melbourne Has Called In The Military To Put More Boots On The Necks Of Protesters.  Melbourne's protest leaders have told demonstrators gathering for rallies on Thursday to look 'smart' and 'sophisticated' as the city braces for the fourth day of violence on its streets.  Nurses and teachers are reportedly planning to join the protests, with workers from the two professions vowing to join tradesmen rallying against vaccine mandates according to organizers on Telegram.  [Video clip]

Congressman warns vaccine mandate for Navy SEALS could be 'very detrimental' to national security.  Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) blasted the Biden administration on Wednesday for "infringing upon the constitutional rights of Americans" by telling Navy SEALs that if they refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine, they will be prohibited from deploying with their teams.  Hundreds of SEALs, the Navy's elite special forces operators, are either seeking religious exemptions from the vaccine mandate or are refusing to get the shot since they already have natural immunity to the virus as a result of having had COVID and recovered from it.  Some SEALs were given a deadline of this week to receive the vaccine.  R. Davis Younts, an Air Force reserves lieutenant colonel and JAG lawyer who is representing some of these SEALs in his capacity as a private attorney, previously told Just the News that his clients "have been told that if they seek a religious accommodation, they likely will no longer be able to serve our country as Navy SEALs and been given an arbitrary deadline to comply with the vaccine mandate."

FDA Official: 'Blow Dart' African Americans with COVID Vaccine is 'Where We're Going... Just Shoot Everyone'.  Project Veritas released the second video of its COVID vaccine investigative series today exposing U.S. Food and Drug Administration [FDA] economist, Taylor Lee, who was recorded calling for forced COVID vaccinations and a registry for all unvaccinated Americans.  Lee said that U.S. Government policy could emulate Nazi Germany when it comes to the COVID vaccine.  "Census goes door-to-door if you don't respond.  So, we have the infrastructure to do it [forced COVID vaccinations].  I mean, it'll cost a ton of money.  But I think, at that point, I think there needs to be a registry of people who aren't vaccinated.  Although that's sounding very [much like Nazi] Germany," Lee said.

Black Lives Matter Is Threatening An 'Uprising' Against 'Racist' Vaccine Mandates.  It's a rule in the national media that vaccine hesitancy is worthy of shame and scorn, right up until it collides with their most precious cause, the Black Lives Matter movement.  Hesitant (white) nurses?  Outcast.  Hesitant (white) Facebook moms?  Shun.  Hesitant (white) Trump supporters?  Guillotine.  But there's oddly been no prescription for the Black Lives Matter crew in New York who are accusing the city of racial discrimination by mandating vaccines for public, indoor activity.  Hawk Newsome, the co-founder and chairman of Black Lives Matter Greater New York, was quoted Saturday in the New York Times saying that restaurants "are using vaccine mandates to enforce their racist beliefs and excluding black patrons."

Remdesivir Reduced Risk of Hospitalization When Given to COVID-19 Patients Early:  Study.  The antiviral remdesivir treatment reduced the risk of hospitalization among COVID-19 patients when administered soon after they were diagnosed, according to a new study.  Researchers found that remdesivir cut the risk of hospitalization by 87 percent compared to a placebo that half of the study participants received.  A total of 562 patients, all deemed at high-risk from COVID-19, were enrolled in the trial.  Gilead Sciences, which developed remdesivir and conducted the Phase 3 randomized, double-blind trial, stopped trial enrollment in April because the company struggled to find enough participants.  But it continued to follow those who had enrolled, half of whom were given a placebo.

Fauci:  Vaccine Mandates for Domestic Travel 'on the Table and Under Consideration'.  Fauci:  "I am not going to get ahead of the President.  I told others when they asked, and I will repeat it for you, that it is on the table and under consideration.  There are going to be a lot of factors going into that.  I have expressed that I would be in favor of that if the President decides to do that and if the individuals involved in advising him are in favor of doing that, I would be in favor of doing that."  [Video clip]

Biden Tells United Nations Assembly It Will Take "Collective Political Will" To Force The COVID Vaccine into Global Population.  Something uniquely telling about these remarks today before the United Nations.  Something transparently obvious that most will miss.  While bragging about how the United States is the world's leading provider of COVID-19 mRNA gene therapy, Biden notes it will take a "collective act of political will" to deal with a public health emergency.  Think about that carefully.  [Video clip]

Lt Gen Thomas McInerney:  Fauci's Quack "Vaccines" Have Killed 15,000 Americans.  Ivermectin?  None.  In a fiery discussion, General McInerney covered two points.  First, he cited the absolute necessity of citizens demanding immediate access to Ivermectin to use against the Wuhan Flu, instead of taking the bio-weapon vaccine injection.  Ivermectin works to defeat the flu, it protects the individual, and, most important, has no record of killing 15,000 Americans as Fauci's quack vaccines have done.

Oberlin College Mandates Masks at ALL Times After Just One Positive COVID Test on Campus.  [Scroll down]  So, to recap, a grand total of 89 COVID tests have been performed on a campus of nearly 3000 people and one came back positive.  One single, solitary, lonely test.  One.  Singular.  The loneliest number in the world.  As a result, and in ignorant defiance of every piece of scientific and anecdotal data we have to date, the college has decided those who incur the least risk when it comes to COVID must pay the steepest prices... full muzzling even in the great outdoors.  It should come as no surprise that the flat-earthers at Oberlin have instituted this senseless mandate.  If you recall, Oberlin is the college that recently incurred an $44 million dollar judgment after being involved in slandering a local bakery as "racists."  Their big offense?  Detaining an Oberlin student whom they caught stealing wine.  The student also happened to be Black.

Trouble in Vegas — Clark County Commission Declares COVID Misinformation A Public Health Emergency.  In reality, "misinformation" and "disinformation" doesn't exist — there is just information you accept, and information you do not accept.  You were not born with the requirement to believe everything you are told.  Rather, you were born with a brain that allows you to process the information you receive.  That said, the Clark County commission in Nevada voted today to establish "COVID misinformation" as a public health emergency, clearing the way for the largest (and most notoriously corrupt) county in Nevada to create ordinances blocking any form of speech they consider adverse to their approved narrative.

Chinese Defector Claims COVID Outbreak Was Intentionally Released in October 2019 at Military World Games.  According to Chinese defector Wei Jingsheng, the COVID-19 outbreak was intentional and was released through the Military World Games in Wuhan, China in October 2019 and China decided to wait two months before they notified the world.  Jingsheng said the athletes fell sick after the event yet nothing was done. [...] The whistleblower revealed that he had heard of the Chinese government carrying out an "unusual exercise" during the games.  "[I knew] of the possibility of the Chinese government using some strange weapons, including biological weapons, because I knew they were doing experiments of that sort," he said.

They Need Our Faces.  When we interact with other people, we rely almost totally on watching — and then reading — their faces.  We know instinctively that children's development depends almost entirely on their learning to read the faces in front of them.  This is why, whenever we interact with children, we make sure they can see our entire face and we are more animated than we might otherwise be.  Although the American Academy of Pediatrics recently removed from its website all information about the importance to infant development of seeing facial expressions and the CDC has doubled down on masking in schools, no sane person can that face-to-face interaction is important to children's social and emotional development.  (The AAP claims the information's disappearance resulted from moving content to a new platform and that the information, once reviewed will be back, maybe, before year's end.  The timing is interesting.)  And while there are still sites like this and this to go to for evidence of what our instincts tell us, we don't really need proof.

The Great Reset and COVID.  The global elites' response to the pandemic and climate change is the same:  the Great Reset (GR).  Those pushing the GR are attempting to impose socialism worldwide, especially on energy production and use. [...] The government response to the pandemic was a test case in the effort to impose the GR whole cloth.  The elites tested how much freedom they could seize before people began to push back.  Instead of tracing the virus and isolating those with COVID-19, as had been done to great effect during past pandemics, the government locked down people who weren't sick "for the good of all."  As one anti-lockdown activist told Fox News, "Quarantine is when you restrict movement of sick people.  Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people."  If the GR comes to pass, it will be too late for people to do anything about it.  Any resistance will be castigated by sheeple on social media and in the mainstream media.  Social media will shut down the accounts of any who object and silence their voices.

They Intend to Destroy America.  Nearly every network evening news and local news broadcast begins with a "COVID-19 Update" and another sales pitch to get the vaccine or to scare and shame the unvaccinated.  Government health agencies and bureaucracies focus only on vaccines of waning effectiveness, and that is killing people.  Still, they insist we must get vaccinated or we'll get lockdowns, masks, and every other mandated measure they can think of.  The installed administration is now exerting top-down control of preventative medicines and is aggressively seizing monoclonal antibody treatments from states that use them to distribute "equitably" to states that don't.  It's all meant to make us do as we are told, and it proves the long-held assertions among conservatives that socialized medicine equals rationing of medicine and care, and lets the government decide who lives or dies.  Resist.

The Melbourne Tinderbox and Why Americans Should Pay Attention.  An inflection point has been reached in Australia with the government COVID-19 lockdowns, forced vaccinations and now, vaccine passports. [...] Things recently came to a head when the Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, began outlining the rules and regulations for opening society back up after almost a year of total lockdown.  The always futile attempt to block the COVID-19 virus through a policy known as "COVID-ZERO" was abandoned.  The new approach is to open up society and the economy by forcing everyone to take the vaccine, and then allowing only the vaccinated to participate in the economy as varying percentages of the population are double-vaxxed, and admittedly, later, booster-vaxxed.  Vaccination passports will be required to work, shop, attend events and essentially live in the New World Order Premier Andrews has created for the citizens of Victoria.  The day after Andrews outlined the new rules — the working class, who have been locked down and compliant to this point, finally had enough.

Melbourne, Australia, COVID Compliance Minister Daniel Andrews Vows To Squash The Trade Union Rebellion.  It started with a few hundred on Day One.  Then Grew to several thousand on Day Two.  In preparation for Day Three of the trade union revolt, Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews promises to punish the protestors and orders thousands more riot police into the city of Melbourne to crush the rebellion.  Victorians will take their forced mRNA gene modification, or they will die trying to resist it.  Using the state media to push his warning against non-compliant citizens of the state lockdown, Premier Andrews was joined by Victorian Police Minister Lisa Neville and Police Chief Shane Patton in charge of the jackboots.  Andrews, Neville and Patton promised to use the full weight of police tactics and riot squads to crush any protest group who attempts to unlawfully assemble.  [Video clip]

Australian Cops Admit They Don't Agree With Gov And Are With Protesters.  This was the incredible time of clarity and honesty by a group of cops in Australia when questioned on why they would do this to their own fellow citizens.  When asked about the draconian measures they are enforcing, the officers responded that they disagree with the government and agree with the protesters but stomp on their human and civil rights anyway for a paycheck.  [Video clip]

Facebook Takes Down Project Veritas Video Featuring HHS Staff Denouncing the COVID-19 Vaccine.  On Sunday [9/19/2021], Project Veritas released a bombshell undercover video featuring doctors and nurses from Health and Human Services discussing their doubts about the vaccine and how it may potentially be causing more harm than good.  The same videos were shared to the account of Project Veritas founder, James O'Keefe.  Not long afterward, Facebook and Instagram took down the videos from O'Keefe's account.  Project Veritas Chief of Staff Eric Spracklen posted to Twitter that the reason behind the deletion of the videos from O'Keefe's account was that it "could contribute to physical harm."

After Mandating Masks Outdoors, Oregon's Active COVID-19 Cases Increased 73 Percent.  On August 24, Oregon governor Kate Brown instated a state masking requirement that requires everyone five years and older, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask, face covering, or face shield in outdoor spaces if they are less than six feet apart from individuals not in their household.  "Cases and hospitalizations are at a record high," said Governor Brown.  "Masks are a quick and simple tool we can immediately deploy to protect ourselves and our families, and quickly help stop further spread of COVID-19."

Biden administration 'strongly opposes' honorable discharge for service members who refuse COVID-19 vaccine.  The Biden administration has come out against an amendment to the defense budget that would prevent the Pentagon from dishonorably discharging service members who refuse to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.  The Office of Management and Budget said in a statement Tuesday [9/21/2021] that the administration "strongly opposes" the amendment, arguing that if it's implemented, it would "detract from readiness and limit a commander's options for enforcing good order and discipline when a Service member fails to obey a lawful order to receive a vaccination."

The Editor says...
If the experimental mRNA stuff isn't a vaccine at all, one could argue that requiring everyone to accept the injection isn't a "lawful order."

New R.1 COVID-19 variant spreads quickly at Kentucky nursing home.  A new variant of the COVID-19 virus has been identified at a Kentucky nursing home, where it infected 45 residents and workers, many of whom were vaccinated.  The R.1 variant originated in Japan, and contains dangerous mutations that can improve "transmission, replication, and immune suppression," a scientist wrote in Forbes Monday [9/20/2021].  There are already more than 10,000 entries of the R.1 variant in a database used by researchers to track genomic material, infectious disease expert Dr.  William Haseltine said.  The variant shares the highly infectious D614G mutation that is present in other variants fueling new surges of the coronavirus, according to the doctor.

Biden: U.S. will buy and donate 500M more COVID-19 vaccine doses for the world.  President Biden will announce Wednesday [9/22/2021] the U.S. is purchasing an additional 500 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine to give to the rest of the world, bringing its total commitment to more than 1 billion shots.  Mr.  Biden will also press other global leaders to "step up" and do more during a COVID-19 summit that he is hosting on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, according to a senior administration official.  "For every one shot we have administered in this country to date, we are now donating three shots to other countries.  One shot here today, three shots committed for the world," the official told reporters.  "No other country, or group of countries, have come close to that."

Our 'Boy Who Cried Wolf' Government.  [Scroll down]  The end result is that people are finally refusing to adapt to the government's new rules.  Why should Americans be punished for choosing to remain unvaccinated when the federal government is actively transporting unvaccinated illegal aliens for resettlement around the country?  Why should ordinary American workers have their jobs threatened for not complying with White House vaccination demands, while U.S. congressional staffers and the U.N.'s global elite remain exempt?  Why must two-year-old toddlers be abused by mask requirements when celebrities party live on television mask-free?  Why should any thinking person put stock in mandatory social distancing rules when the former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration admits that nobody has a clue why federal health authorities began insisting on six feet of separation in the first place?  Why should anybody trust the government's recordkeeping of COVID cases and deaths when it has been discovered that even incidents of murder-suicide have been fraudulently included in those numbers?  Why should schoolchildren be forced to become test subjects for the pharmaceutical industry's experimental faux vaccines when schoolteachers are balking at being treated as test subjects themselves?  Why would any American trust the politicized "science" being peddled by the flip-flopping Dr. Fauci when reputable colleagues in his own field accuse him publicly of flagrantly betraying the impartiality of rigid scientific research by engaging in campaigns of intimidation against those who have refused to toe the line of state-sponsored medical propaganda?

Covid vaccines do not prevent infection, they simply do not work as claimed.  At least three new studies prove that the vials of mystery chemicals they are calling "vaccines" for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) do absolutely nothing to stop infection with or spread of the disease.  A Yale University graduate who also obtained a PhD from Princeton University says that the jabs do not work as claimed, which only adds to the growing mountain of evidence against their continued use.  Nina Pierpont published a paper on September 9 that analyzes numerous studies showing that Fauci Flu shots fail to stop the disease from infecting the "fully vaccinated" or transmitting in and out of their bodies.  In her report on the findings, Pierpont explained how getting injected for Chinese Germs will not bring about "herd immunity," nor will it do much of anything beyond making people sicker due to vaccine-induced autoimmune disorders and other diseases.  The jabs do not protect fully vaccinated people against infection, she writes, nor do they keep fully vaccinated people from carrying the infection and spreading it to others.  Why, then, are government bureaucrats trying to force them onto everyone?

"Fauci Admits Coronavirus Vaccines Don't Prevent Infection".  Getting vaccinated for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) could maybe, possibly, reduce some of the symptoms associated with infection, says Anthony Fauci, but recipients should not expect to be protected against actual infection.  America's top government "doctor" told the media the other day that President Donald Trump's "Operation Warp Speed" jabs are wholly unable to protect recipients against "catching" the novel virus, especially during the first round of injections.  They should still get penetrated for the China virus, however, because doing so is good, or something.  "The primary thing you want to do is that if people get infected, prevent them from getting sick, and if you prevent them from getting sick, you will ultimately prevent them from getting seriously ill," Fauci proclaimed at Yahoo Finance's recent All Markets Summit.  "If the vaccine also allows you to prevent initial infection, that would be great.  [But] what I would settle for, and all of my colleagues would settle for, is the primary endpoint to prevent clinically recognizable disease."  Other than spread more disease, it is unclear thus far in what way COVID-19 vaccines might be beneficial.

Getting vaccinated for coronavirus could make the pandemic worse.  Until a Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine becomes publicly available, some government officials have indicated that they want to keep everything under indefinite lockdown.  But a vaccine could end up making the plandemic even worse, according to Anthony Fauci.  In case you missed it, Fauci is on record as having stated in the past that earlier vaccine candidates for other coronaviruses produced a "suboptimal response."  He went on to explain that they actually "enhanced pathogenesis of the disease, which is always worrisome."  The Citizens' Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) in Minnesota has issued an urgent plea calling on government officials and health authorities to take note of Fauci's words in addressing current vaccine policy.  "First, there's 'no guarantee' a COVID-19 vaccine will work and second, it could 'backfire,' strengthening the virus," the group has said, as reported by WND.

CDC covid camps have no plans to allow healthy people to leave.  There is a very clear pattern beginning to form with the American government's Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) agenda.  We have seen this pattern before, perhaps most recently with World War II and the infamous concentration camps where the "unclean" were sent to be "sanitized."  This time around, a scary virus from China (or Fort Detrick?) is the excuse for hauling off the "dangerous" to internment facilities where they can be "cleansed" of the virus and released back into society — or will they?  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has introduced a "Green Zone" plan that involves "shielding" certain people in "humanitarian settings" in order to protect against Chinese Virus infection.  Reading between the lines, though, reveals that there is absolutely nothing humanitarian about any of it.  The "interim" plan from the CDC, as we reported, involves relocating and isolating individuals to supposedly "stop the spread" of the Fauci Flu.  This sounds eerily similar to the Nazi propaganda back in the 1930s.

Top 10 Biggest Lies about Covid-19.  Covid is a group of symptoms, not a disease, according to one of the world's leading virus experts, Dr. Judy Mikovitz.  When you test "positive" for Covid, you're really just testing positive for common colds, flu viruses and pathogens from previous vaccines.  When most people run a high fever, their body is actually fighting off bacteria from the Covid masks they wear all day and the pathogens that were injected with the Covid inoculations.  The entire pandemic is based on false pretenses and fabricated statistics, so we must look at the biggest lies that were concocted, like a synthetic virus in a lab, and then spread around with propaganda, like a TV "breaking news" pandemic update.  Anyone wearing a mask who got a flu shot this summer is literally growing the pandemic because they will be sick and test "positive" for Covid, and also be convinced they had Covid.  Then when they quarantine, social distance and continue to mask up, they will be weakening themselves while exacerbating whatever cold or flu they have even more so.

Heads Explode Over Florida's New Surgeon General.  Florida has a new surgeon general, and minds are being lost in response.  Gov. Ron DeSantis appointed Dr. Jospeh Ladapo, a UCLA professor and Harvard Medical graduate to serve in the role.  But what has the media and the left at large absolutely freaking out is how Ladapo wants to handle things like mask and vaccine mandates. [...] One of the most ridiculous aspects of the federal government's response to COVID-19 is the obfuscation of what causes the most people to get sick and die when they contract the virus.  Namely, being obese or having other comorbidities that result from an unhealthy lifestyle.  Yet, if someone dares to say that one way to fight COVID is for people to take care of themselves, that's seen as an assault on the sacred vaccine, and we can't have that.  Further, Ladapo's view on not forcing masks follows the science.  Unfortunately for him, that view runs up against orthodoxy that has made masking a religious rite.

Florida's next surgeon general opposes mask, vaccine mandates.  Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a new surgeon general for Florida on Tuesday, a Harvard-trained doctor who advocated for an approach to the coronavirus pandemic that emphasizes protecting individual rights over community-based precautions.  Dr. Joseph Ladapo, a UCLA researcher who expressed skepticism that vaccines could help end the pandemic, said Tuesday that he would "reject fear" as a public health strategy.  "Florida will completely reject fear as a way of making policies," Ladapo said.  "That's been something that's been, unfortunately, a centerpiece of health policies."

Why Can't Dr. Anthony Fauci Stop Lying?  No one has lost more credibility over the last year or so than Dr. Anthony Fauci.  Once lauded by the left and right alike (though, some of us saw through him as far back as April 2020), the good doctor is now widely derided as a political hack, and for good reason.  He lied about masks early on, claiming that he did so in order to protect supplies, but it's his more recent lies that have really exposed his brazen nature.  Recently, he told another whopper involving kids and COVID, asserting that we've never lost as many kids to the flu as we have the coronavirus.  That, as Guy Benson points out with CDC data, is just completely false.  [Tweet]

Did the FDA actually approve a FUTURE covid "vaccine" from BioNTech that does not exist yet?  There appears to be a whole lot of confusion out there about which "vaccine" for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) was actually "approved" by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Aug. 23, 2021.  While many mainstream media outlets quickly ran with the story that Pfizer's existing mRNA injection for the Fauci Flu was given the official green light from the FDA, supposedly making it easier to mandate, others are saying that the FDA issued approval specifically to BioNTech, a German vaccine corporation, for a Chinese Virus injection that does not exist yet.  BioNTech, as you may recall, partnered with Pfizer to produce the current Fauci Flu shot that is being administered under an emergency use authorization (EUA).  It turns out, however, that this is technically a different shot than the "Comirnaty" branded one referenced in the FDA's recent approval announcement.

Why Do Doctors Go Along with COVID Panic Porn and CDC Prescriptions?  [Scroll down]  But what does that have to do with ivermectin?  I'm glad you asked.  U&C [usual and customary] bills are just one of hundreds of rules that CMMS enforces.  Another is "Pay for Performance."  Basically, P-f-P requires you to check a host of boxes when taking care of patients. [...] So let us suppose that you use ivermectin to treat a COVID patient as he arrives in the hospital.  Ivermectin isn't on the Medicare/Medicaid approved list of medications for COVID.  Your hospital pharmacy will call you up and give you grief.  After wasting a lot of time getting them to finally let you have it, you've had to cancel half of your office day.  The next day, you'll get a visit from a coder, who will tell you that you didn't use the approved treatment protocol and put the hospital in jeopardy because you flunked P-f-P.  By the way, that "coder" is the person who "helps" you use the proper ICD (billing) code for whatever the patient has in order for the hospital to make the most money.

German professor calls for investigation into military geoengineering.  [Scroll down]  The COVID-19 vaccines contain ingredients such as polyethylene glycol and graphene oxide that harm the human body.  The mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna contain these toxic compounds, yet governments around the world mandate that people take these dangerous chemical cocktails.  True enough, researchers discover that Pfizer's Comirnaty vaccine contains more than 90 percent graphene oxide.  Scientists from the University of Almeria in Spain have scrutinized Comirnaty doses.  They reveal that each dose of Comirnaty contains around 747 nanograms of graphene oxide — meaning that more than 99 percent of the vaccine is composed entirely of the toxic compound.

Kim Jarvis: 57-year-old West Virginia woman declares "I'm vaccinated but don't know what's in it," dead less than 24 hours later.  Mrs. Kim Jarvis declared on August 29, "I am vaccinated."  She did not clarify which injections she received, nor did she specify when she received the injections.  A search through her Facebook posts from May 1 to August 29 revealed no further information.  It frankly doesn't matter which injection she received as all of them are equally lethal.  But it's the rest of her lengthy post that day that makes this story so bizarre.  She admitted that she doesn't know what [was] in the injections.  Mrs. Jarvis continued, saying she also doesn't know what's in a Big Mac or hot dogs, but suggested she eats them anyway.  Of course nobody really knows (beyond broad, ambiguous generalizations) what's in the mRNA and viral vector DNA injections because all of the package inserts that are supposed to contain that information are blank.  There are numerous videos of pharmacists opening the boxes of vials and revealing the blank inserts.  [Video clip]

Giulia Lucenti: 16-year-old Italian girl dead less than 24 hours after second Pfizer mRNA injection.  A 16-year-old Italian girl is dead, in yet another senseless death that will be ignored and/or minimized by mainstream media.  Ms. Giulia Lucenti received her second Pfizer mRNA injection on Wednesday, September 8 at 5:45 p.m. local time, according to Notizie.it in Milan.  The Galilei Institute student had had a congenital heart defect called mitral (bicuspid) valve prolapse.

Clint Bearden: 55-year-old Louisiana oil worker diagnosed with dementia 10 days after second Pfizer mRNA injection.  A 55-year-old oil worker and father-of-three is unlikely to ever return to work, leaving his family in a precarious situation.  Mr. Clint Bearden received his second Pfizer mRNA injection on June 12, according to his wife, Kari Bearden.  There were no immediate, apparent adverse effects.  But by June 16, Mr. Bearden starting experiencing "disorientation and confusion."  He checked into the emergency room on June 22.  Kari said he was now in a state of "full-blown psychosis."  Mr. Bearden spent nearly three of the next six weeks in the hospital.  Doctors performed every neurological test to find answers.  He was initially diagnosed with early onset dementia that doctors said was a result of a West Nile Virus infection from seven years ago.  Obviously that explanation is ridiculous, so the family sought another opinion.  The second team of neurologists said the dementia was "caused by the COVID vaccine."  And though his symptoms "might" improve over time, doctors said the damage is likely permanent.

In Australia, the people's fight against COVID tyranny escalates.  From the beginning of COVID's emergency, the state of Victoria, which is Australia's most densely populated state, announced that its goal was zero COVID cases, which it assured people could be met by extraordinary lockdowns, masks, and social distancing.  Even when it became apparent that (a) you can't have zero cases in a globally interconnected world, (b) that the virus has a >99% survival rate for people under 70, and (c) that COVID is treatable, Victoria's government didn't let up.  Most recently, it declared that everyone who wishes to work must be vaccinated.  The people are beginning to fight back.

Wuhan scientists planned to release enhanced coronaviruses into bat caves 21 months before start of Covid pandemic outbreak.  Scientists in the Chinese city where Covid emerged planned to alter coronaviruses and release them into bat caves 21 months before the pandemic kicked off, leaked documents have revealed.  Dr Peter Daszak, president of New York-based EcoHealth Alliance, proposed working with a group of scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology to carry out the research.  The experts wanted to genetically enhance coronaviruses and release them among bats in Yunnan — around 1,240 miles (2,000 km) south west of Wuhan — in the hopes it would stop new viruses jumping from bats to humans.

Wuhan scientists planned to release coronaviruses into cave bats 18 months before outbreak.  Wuhan and US scientists were planning to release enhanced airborne coronavirus particles into Chinese bat populations to inoculate them against diseases that could jump to humans, leaked grant proposals dating from 2018 show.  New documents show that just 18 months before the first Covid-19 cases appeared, researchers had submitted plans to release skin-penetrating nanoparticles and aerosols containing "novel chimeric spike proteins" of bat coronaviruses into cave bats in Yunnan, China.  They also planned to create chimeric viruses, genetically enhanced to infect humans more easily, and requested $14 million from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) to fund the work.

New 'Lancet' Letter Says There's No Direct Evidence COVID-19 Originated Naturally.  Before the United States and many other countries had their first COVID cases, one person was out on the full-court press to shield the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Chinese government from suspicions that the virus was engineered:  Peter Daszak.  Daszak, the President of EcoHealth Alliance, a New York-based non-profit that funds viral research around the globe, has had his fingers in almost all of the pies dealing with COVID-19, including "organizing" virologists to sign on to the a lette in "Lancet" stating conclusively that the virus originated naturally, serving on Lancet's COVID-19 Origins Committee and on the World Health Organization's team that investigated the origins; in addition, he played a significant role in funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Sky News Australia drops bomb on Fauci, calls him "incredibly stupid" for funding illegal gain-of-function coronavirus research in Wuhan.  Sharri Markson of Sky News in Australia has dropped a major bomb on Tony Fauci and his contrived Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) plandemic narrative.  In a recent segment, Markson called out Fauci point-blank for funneling American taxpayer dollars to Wuhan, China, to conduct illegal gain-of-function research on coronaviruses.  Markson says that Fauci is "up to his neck" in crime, which "just shows how incredibly stupid" he is.  Markson has been probing Fauci's criminal activity for a while now, having uncovered that Fauci "had funded 60 projects at the Wuhan laboratory."

LA County Health Dept.  Confirms Different Covid Rules for Emmys, Hollywood Elite.  The Los Angeles County Health Department issued a response claiming there are exceptions for film and television after actor Seth Rogen called out Covid violations on-stage during the 2021 Emmy Awards.  Comments made by Rogen about the amount of people attending the indoor award show prompted widespread concern about hypocrisy and disproportionate enforcement of Covid regulations for Hollywood.

Orange Vests March For Third Day in Melbourne, Police Crack Skulls.  Orange vest construction workers marched for a third day in Melbourne, Australia against mandatory vaccination rules, with one video showing a protester profusely bleeding after police cracked his skull.  After authorities shut down the construction industry in Melbourne for two weeks in an effort to force workers to get vaccinated, anger only escalated, with the orange vests seen engaged in numerous clashes with police.  The demonstrations continued for a third day, with numerous clips illustrating how irate the mandatory vaccine rule has made the workers as well as the brutality of the police response.

Thousands storm streets of New York City to protest covid medical fascism.  We are finally seeing some pushback here in the United States in response to fake "president" Joe Biden's unconstitutional Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) "vaccine" mandates.  Thousands of freedom lovers took to the streets of New York City over the weekend to protest the "New World Order," which appears to be getting ushered in at warp speed under the guise of fighting a "pandemic."  In the following video, you will see thousands of patriots marching through a busy street waving flags and holding up signs in protest of medical fascism:  [Tweet]

The FDA is right about 1 thing: I am not a horse.  I, for one, agree completely.  I am not a horse.  In particular, I am not their horse, or their cow, to be ridden, milked, or slaughtered for the greater good.  They do not own me and have no right to decide that I must take the COVID-19 vaccine, supposedly to protect the vulnerable of the herd.  By the way, it doesn't.  The FDA also has NO authority to dictate or deny medical treatment.  Once it approves a drug for safety for any indication, it does not have the legal right to tell physicians that they can use the drug for this, but not for that.  Or veterinarians either.  The only reason to go through a billion dollars' worth of studies to get a new "on-label" indication is to allow a company to market a drug for that use.  If it's a cheap, non-patentable drug, why would a company make such an investment?  But doctors are allowed to talk about it, and journals may publish articles.  Normally, such discussions are not automatically smeared as "harmful misinformation" by social media fact-checkers.

Australian Citizens Rise Up, Take To The Streets Against Vaccine Passports, COVID Tyranny.  The Australian citizenry has taken to the streets of Melbourne in a massive revolt against COVID-19 tyranny, signifying the death rattle of the globalist agenda as the world watches an oppressed populace fight to regain their freedom in the Land Down Under.  A remarkable situation is currently unfolding in Melbourne, Australia, where thousands upon thousands of anti-COVID tyranny protestors have taken to the streets in a grand revolt against the government.  Videos surfacing online reveal major clashes between citizens and mask-wearing riot gear-clad law enforcement officers, who are struggling to curb the restless crowd seeking to restore the freedoms they once had prior to the ruthless enforcement one of the most totalitarian COVID-19 pandemic responses the world has ever seen.

Nurse:  "What I'm Seeing is Criminal".  [Video clip]

'This Is Evil at the Highest Level,' Says HHS Whistleblower.  Project Veritas on Monday [9/20/2021] released the first video of its COVID vaccine investigative series featuring an interview with U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) insider, Jodi O'Malley, a registered nurse at the Phoenix Indian Medical Center in Arizona.  O'Malley described to Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe what has been going on at her federal government facility.  To corroborate her assertions, O'Malley recorded her HHS colleagues discussing their concerns about the new COVID vaccine.  [Video clip]

Federal whistleblower comes forth claiming disturbing secret recordings about the jab.  Project Veritas released part one of their explosive #CovidVaxExposed series on Monday with an interview of registered nurse and HHS insider Jodi O'Malley who is blowing the whistle along with other medical personnel on COVID vaccinations and their side effects.  O'Malley works at the Phoenix Indian Medical Center in Arizona.  She is recounting what she has seen at the federal government facility in regards to inoculations against the virus.  The nurse recorded discussions with her medical colleagues who are also concerned about the COVID vaccine.  Dr. Maria Gonzales, who is an ER Doctor at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services unequivocally stated while talking with O'Malley, "All this is [nonsense].  Now, [a patient] probably [has] myocarditis due to the [COVID] vaccine.  But now, they [government] are not going to blame the vaccine."

Fun-Hating Fauci Humiliated:  Study Shows Packed CFB Stadiums are Not Superspreader Events.  Two and a half weeks ago, fans across the country flooded college football stadiums for the first time in almost two years.  In many ways, it felt like America was returning to normal again.  The trend continued this week as college football teams completed their third week of the season.  One of the biggest games this past weekend pitted Florida against top-ranked Alabama, and 90,000 fans gathered to witness what turned out to be a nail-biting win for the Crimson Tide.  [Tweet]  Scenes like that one give any college football fan like myself goosebumps.  But for some COVID-obsessed health professionals, they invoke unnecessary fear.  Take, for example, newfound celebrity Dr. Anthony Fauci.  When he was asked about college football fans finally going back to normal, he discouraged it.

20,000 Shut Down Melbourne Highway in Massive Lockdown Protest.  Anti-lockdown protests have become more common in Australia since the latest round of "snap" lockdowns began two months ago.  Initially, those lockdowns were supposed to last a week.  But months later, with tensions running high, millions of Australians are fed up with the government's lockdowns and vaccine requirements.  And although Aussie health authorities have at the very least acknowledged that their "COVID Zero" approach isn't actually feasible, frustrations among the Australian people are running high (perhaps intensified by the country's latest diplomatic faux pas, which angered France and made PM Scott Morrison look like he stabbed President Macron in the back).

6 Feet Social Distancing Rule Was Completely Made Up Says Ex FDA Commissioner.  According to the former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, the 6 feet Social Distancing rule was completely made up and arbitrary and nobody knows where it came from.  Scott Gottlieb, the former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), admitted during an interview on Face the Nation that the six foot social distancing rule recommended by public health officials for months on end was actually "arbitrary in and of itself," and he noted that "nobody knows where it came from."

Here's a nurse who may have figured delta out.  As the big picture begins to sharpen on the COVID pandemic, a few things become clear to me.
  •   The "vaccine" isn't even a vaccine.  It is a radical gene therapy currently being tested on the human race.
  •   The vaccine doesn't work for its stated purpose.  It doesn't prevent infection.
  •   The vaccine is very risky — far more so than getting the disease.  The VAERS system for recording vaccine injuries shows breathtaking statistics despite being undermined by erasures, denial of reports, and failure to count eligible reports.
  •   Natural immunity from those who have recovered from the disease is far superior to the vaccine for prevention.
The vast majority of the information outlets in America have been enlisted to join the government in a fiercely aggressive effort to force every living person to get the vaccine.  This does not square with the above facts.  Perhaps that is why, as of last May, 40% of the people in Fauci's NIAID had declined to be vaccinated.

How Smart Are The Vaxxed?  [Scroll down]  The fact is that what is possibly the biggest trial in medical annals has produced results to which no Covid vaccine could hold a candle.  Uttar Pradesh is the most populated state in India, home to 240 million people.  It's also been averaging fewer than 4 deaths daily.  No.  It's not vaccines that did it.  It can't be if just 10% of the people are fully vaxxed.  The secret is the drug.  Authorities began dispensing ivermectin liberally while encouraging people to take it early on and even as a prophylactic.  Other states followed suit.  Delhi, Karnataka, and Uttarakhand have used Ivermectin widely and basically have eradicated Covid.  But if dirty chaotic India cannot be trusted to prove a drug, then there's clean orderly Japan's support for Ivermectin.  Two questions beg to be addressed.  One, what do the powers that be have to gain from closeting the Indian experiment and Japan's approval?  And two, why make the infantile excuse that taking Ivermectin in the wrong dosage could be fatal?  Dosing up on aspirin could be fatal.

The COVID vaccination program is the largest medical experiment in human history.  Any critique of the COVID-19 vaccines has to point out that they were inadequately tested before being released.  The FDA can't dispute this claim but will immediately add that the vaccines are nonetheless safe. [...] Here are some of the standard steps the FDA skipped before issuing its Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the vaccines.  Knowing this, you decide how valid is the FDA's assurance the safety of COVID vaccines.  It was known by the FDA and others that no previous coronavirus vaccines ever passed animal trials.  The test animals got seriously ill or died.  These experimental vaccines were shown to make worse the symptoms of the disease they were supposed to suppress.  This is a sign of an Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE) which means the antibodies from the vaccine might actually help the virus enter and damage living cells.  This should have been a red flag for the FDA when the COVID-19 vaccines came before it for review.  Furthermore, Pfizer and the other vaccine manufacturers didn't complete animal testing on their novel COVID-19 vaccines.

Michigan meteorologist Karl Bohnak opts out of vaccine, leaving job of 33 years instead.  Meteorologist Karl Bohnak, long a fixture on the Michigan weather-prediction scene, has opted out of his job at NBC affiliate WLUC-TV rather than get a coronavirus vaccine.  "Today, it is with a heavy heart, I announce after over 33 years, I am no longer employed at TV6," Bohnak, 68, wrote in a lengthy Facebook post last Wednesday.  "I am leaving TV6 because the station's corporate owner, Gray Television, has mandated vaccination against COVID-19 for anyone entering a property owned by the company.  Since I chose not to take one of the shots, I was fired.  Many of you have taken one of these injections, and that is absolutely your right.  It is also my right to choose the medical options I feel are right for me.  I have authority over my body."

The United States of Fear.  We are in a moment of profound fear in the US.  The pandemic has broken something in us that has been cracking for some time.  The way we look at travel, especially travel abroad, shows we are losing our minds.  Our leaders have set an impossible goal:  containing a virus that was quite possibly created with humans in mind.  After 18 months of COVID-19, and despite mass vaccinations, the travel taboo remains in place.  The US has some of the strictest entry restrictions — tougher than Iceland, the UK and most EU states.  The Biden administration even prohibits visits to the US by family members from the UK and EU.  When the restrictions began to loosen, masks were (briefly) removed and distances between people began to condense.  But travel remains a separate category.  Masks are still required on planes even though many countries require airlines to check vaccination status as well as evidence of a negative COVID test.  Planes are seen as flying chambers of COVID, even though little spread has been linked to air travel.

Australia's Largest Construction Workers Union Announced Mandatory Vaccinations, Everyone At Headquarters Nearly Lynched.  Riot police have pelted rubber bullets at protesters during a bloody, chaotic brawl that saw hundreds of people storm the CFMEU headquarters protesting mandatory vaccinations for construction workers.  Several people were arrested during the violent demonstration where union officials were forced inside the building while angry protesters smashed up and graffitied property.  [Video clip]

Biden Administration Requires all Foreign Travelers Entering U.S. to be Vaccinated, Except Illegal Border Crossers Who are Exempt From U.S. Rules and Laws.  A rather remarkable development.  The Biden administration has announced that all foreign travelers to the U.S. must be vaccinated.  "All foreign travelers flying to the U.S. will need to demonstrate proof of vaccination before boarding, as well as proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of flight", said White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients, who announced the new policy on Monday [9/20/2021]."  However, illegal aliens from around the world who cross the southern border from Mexico into the United States do not have to provide proof of vaccination or COVID test.  [Video clip]  If this seems like a bizarro-world standard, it actually gets worse.

Beloved Doctor Is Dragged From His Practice And Arrested For Prescribing Ivermectin.  Beloved doctor, Jean-Paul Théron has been arrested by French police.  Yesterday, the doctor received a visit from the gendarmes following the filing of a complaint from the Country for prescribing Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine to his patients which is being investigated by an examining magistrate.  [Video clip]

Project Veritas Undercover Expose The Dangers of COVID Vaccine and Federal Medical Facility Hiding The Problems.  Project Veritas released the first video of its COVID vaccine investigative series today [9/20/2021] featuring an interview with U.S. Health and Human Services [HHS] insider, Jodi O'Malley, who works as a Registered Nurse at the local Indian Medical Center.  [Video clip]

Whistleblower Alleges Coverup of Adverse Reactions to COVID-19 Vaccines:  Project Veritas.  A person who says she works with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has come forward to Project Veritas with allegations that the government is covering up reports of adverse side effects from the COVID-19 vaccines.  Jodi O'Malley, who says she is a HHS insider who works in Arizona with the Indian Health Service branch — a federal health program for American Indians and Alaska Natives — secretly recorded conversations with colleagues discussing multiple cases of adverse reactions in people who had received the vaccine for COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.  The Epoch Times could not immediately independently verify O'Malley's stated role.  She told investigative journalism nonprofit Project Veritas that she decided to speak up following the death of her colleague shortly after she was "coerced" into taking the vaccine.

Video From Project Veritas Shows Gov Doctor Admitting Vaccines As [Bad], Government Sweeping Bad Data Under The Rug.  Project Veritas released the first video of its COVID vaccine investigative series today featuring an interview with U.S. Health and Human Services [HHS] insider, Jodi O'Malley, who works as a Registered Nurse at the local Indian Medical Center.  O'Malley told Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe about what has been going on at her federal government facility.  She recorded her HHS colleagues discussing their concerns about the new COVID vaccine to corroborate her assertions.  [Video clip]

The Coming Viral Dictatorship.  One popular slogan that we meet everywhere, on radio and TV, on the Internet, and emblazoned on ubiquitous signage, is particularly irritating:  "We're All In This Together."  Clearly, we are not.  While small business owners and entrepreneurs struggle with bankruptcy as their establishments are closed down, Big Box stores operate at full capacity, teachers retain handsome salaries while refusing to enter their classrooms, government personnel continue to be paid in absentia, and politicians suffer no loss of ample remuneration.  Weddings, church services, funerals, social gatherings, holiday celebrations and anti-lockdown protests are either curtailed or banned to prevent proximity transmission of the virus; BLM demonstrations involving thousands of people cheek-by-jowl agitating for "social justice" are permitted and encouraged.  Doctors are here to serve their patients; now many have embraced telemedicine, which does not impact their fees as it does their effectiveness.  Diagnosis at a distance is not reliable medicine, though it is lucrative medicine.  The overall hypocrisy that confronts us at every level of political, corporate and professional society is so blatant as to be unbelievable — except it is entirely believable.  We are manifestly not in this all together, not by a long shot.

Thousands of Victoria Construction Workers, Union Members and Supporters Join in Protest — Riot Police Standoff, Livestream Video Link.  Thousands of Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) members in Victoria, Australia, have returned to the streets as hundreds of riot police are positioned for a stand-off.  It will be interesting to see if the police are willing to go to physical battle against the construction workers.  This is Day #2.  The Union Leader, John Setka, called his union members "fascist morons" today and the union members are showing up in force to confront him and the police.  The police would be idiots to take on this crowd still growing in size; which is to say they are likely stupid enough to do it.  Everything is being throttled by Google, Big Tech and the totalitarian forces united against the global movement for freedom.  Australian media are too scared of the union to cover the protests.  You will have to fight extremely hard to get the truth on this story.

In Melbourne, Australia, the fury over vaccine mandates is exploding.  The Australian state of Victoria, the capital of which is Melbourne, Australia's second-largest city, has seen some of the world's most draconian COVID rules.  The latest order, mandating vaccines for the construction industry along with a two-week industry-wide shutdown, sparked huge, violent protests from trade unions.  Most strikingly, union members turned against their own union boss.

The CDC takes orders from the teachers' unions.  Last year opened my eyes to the power of the teachers' union to conspire with the CDC to craft policy to derail opening schools.  My state, California, has been dead last among 50 states in reopening schools because Gov. Gavin Newsom has implemented every CDC school recommendation.  Schools have offered fewer than 40% of students in-person instruction.  Reopenings have been thwarted with onerous preconditions and mitigation measures, serving to either decrease teacher workload or increase teacher remuneration.  How do we know that the unions are working with the CDC?  After local school boards laid plans to qualify for $2 million grant money for reopening, the unions' push for six-foot social distancing put the brakes on real in-person schooling — emails released through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) showed significant teachers' union influence over CDC guidelines.

Scott Gottlieb Embodies The Sheer Incompetence Of The COVID 'Experts'.  To get a true sense of just how grossly incompetent the COVID "experts" we've entrusted with our lives really are, look no further than Scott Gottlieb's book tour.  Gottlieb is the former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration and he's doing the rounds on TV, explaining to whoever will listen that we — "we" meaning everyone who isn't him — could have done things differently at the start of the pandemic in order to be in a better position than we are now (the apparent tail-end of the second-worst wave of new infections to date).  "Political leaders could have stepped up and tried to galvanize the public behind a common set of shared principles," Gottlieb said Monday on MSNBC.  "Easy stuff like masks.  We couldn't even agree on the easy stuff.  Things like getting the public vaccinated, that's going to be more difficult.  When we can't even get a political consensus around a virtue of wearing masks in public and private as a component of trying to reduce infection and protect our fellow citizens, then we're really behind the eight ball."  He went on to fault — who else? — former President Trump for arriving at the White House back in October and removing his mask on camera.

How EcoHealth Alliance and the Wuhan Institute of Virology Collaborated on a Dangerous Bat Coronavirus Project.  DRASTIC was recently made aware of documents provided by a whistleblower, which show that EcoHealth Alliance (EHA) in concert wIth the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) attempted to carry out advanced and dangerous human pathogenicity Bat Coronavirus research that would clearly qualify as Gain of Function (GoF), in a grant proposal submitted to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in 2018. [...] Peter Daszak and the EcoHealth Alliance (EHA) proposed injecting deadly chimeric bat coronaviruses collected by the Wuhan Institute of Virology into humanised and "batified" mice.  The EHA / WIV proposal (named 'DEFUSE') was ultimately rejected for full funding (but leaving open the door for partial funding), in part because it mis-interpreted the GOF guidelines.  In other words, a branch of the federal government had already judged aspects of EHA's research, and the corresponding shared research plan with the WIV, as falling under the definition of GOF, only for HHS to approve similar work without P3CO review in 2018 and 2019.

Long-Term Dangers of Experimental mRNA Shots.  "Let's start with a thought experiment:  If an engineering design flaw exists and no one measures it, can it really injure people or kill them?" a Twitter user named Ehden writes.  He goes on to discuss an overlooked aspect of the COVID mRNA shots, something called "codon optimization," which virtually guarantees unexpected results.

Every death caused by Covid vaccines will be blamed on "Covid".  Oh, let us count the ways the insidious vaccine industry is already running cover for the mass wave of vaccine-induced health carnage caused by spike protein injections, all administered under the guise of 'inoculation.'  We start off with a new, fake science, vaccine-industry-backed "UK study" that claims catching Covid-19 causes blood clots, and of course it's just a cover story for the mass wave of vaccine-induced blood clots already happening around the world.  The fake study twisted data from "Covid" patients who were ALSO injected with spike proteins, in a futile attempt to try to dwarf the shock of the quickly escalating number of humans suffering from vaccine-induced blood clots.  Researchers from Oxford University were in on the 'gig,' along with several other vaccine-hyping schools of medicine, who all swore to be "fully independent from the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine developers," who are already guilty of making clot shots with severe health consequences.

FDA Panel Member on COVID Vaccines: 'Heart Attacks Happen 71 Times More Often'.  [Scroll down]  Consider the testimonial of Steve Kirsch, executive director of the COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund and also identified as a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) panel member.  In an eight-hour virtual discussion of the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee released Friday by the FDA, Kirsch said there "are four times as many heart attacks [as is normal] in the treatment group in the Pfizer six-month trial report — that wasn't bad luck."  What's more, "The VAERS [Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System] shows heart attacks happen 71 times more often following these vaccines compared to any other vaccine," he continued. [...] Though the shot-hesitant are portrayed as knuckle-dragging, medieval scientific obscurantists, a study found that the education-level-defined group least likely to be vaccinated is Ph.D. holders.  Even more strikingly, it emerged in May that at least 40 percent (this figure may be different now) of FDA employees and those at Anthony Fauci's NIAID hadn't yet been vaccinated.  Did they know something Fauci wasn't telling?  Then there are the nurses choosing to resign in droves rather than take the GTAs.

Pro-vaccine Woman:  My 13-year-old Nephew Died Three Days After 2nd COVID Shot.  Some experts are warning that minors under 18 shouldn't be given COVID vaccinations.  The "risks are not worth the gains from preventing a disease that very rarely causes serious problems in the young," as The Times put it on June 16, citing Britain's Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.  Sadly, this information came too late for Jacob Clynick, a 13-year-old boy with no known health problems who passed away recently after receiving a China virus vaccination.  Jacob's tragic story was brought to us by his aunt, Tami Burages, who said that he died of heart problems three days after his second shot.

COVID-19 Vaccines:  A "Cure" Worse Than the Disease?  Many Americans have heard the news account of Dr. Gregory Michael, a 56-year-old Florida physician who, after receiving his first dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID vaccine on December 18 of last year, was hospitalized with a blood disorder and spontaneous bleeding.  In spite of being treated by a team of physicians, he died of a brain bleed due to total loss of his platelets — the little blood cells that stop bleeding.  By February 10, 2021, 36 similar cases were reported in the mainstream media.  Pfizer said in a statement that it was "aware of the death," adding, "We are actively investigating this case, but we don't believe at this time that there is any direct connection to the vaccine."  Pfizer made this "finding" despite several unusual circumstances of the case.  First, the low-platelet disorder known to most doctors as idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) most commonly affects children, and generally follows a viral illness. [...] What happened to this physician and the others seems to be a new problem related to COVID vaccines, despite the manufacturers' claims.  This is further substantiated by the following case:  After receiving the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, a woman breast-fed her healthy one-month-old baby, who then died of thrombocytopenia.

Dissenting Federal Employee:  Prostitute or Patriot?  As I write this, I am still a federal employee, but due to being unvaxxed, that may soon change.  There seems to be a deafening silence from federal employees on the topic of the COVID vaccine mandate.  Perhaps this silence is due to the fear of being shunned and hated.  Perhaps most support the mandate.  The reason isn't clear.  The purpose of this article is to discuss — from a federal employee's perspective — the potential moral and ethical impacts the vaccine mandate may have and present questions some of us will have to consider as this mandate is implemented, for which there are no easy answers.  It's hard to describe the anger and horror of the idea that we will likely be required to inject something into our bodies that goes against our principles to keep our jobs.  It feels similar to the process of grief (not surprising, because it sure looks like the death of America as we know it).

India's Ivermectin Blackout, Part III.  The New York Times reported India's colossal drop in COVID cases was unexplainable, while the BBC declared that Kerala's rise was also a mystery.  While new cases of COVID in Uttar Pradesh are rare as million-dollar lottery tickets, in Kerala, a tiny state located in southern India, new daily cases are the same as the United States, nearly one case per thousand.  Yet, as we have seen in this series, there has been a curious media blackout on India's overall success against COVID.

The Truth About Ivermectin.  Have you ever wondered why the MSM and medical mafia constantly demonizes Ivermectin?  Earlier this year, the FDA issued a special warning that "you should not use ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID-19."  The FDA's statement included words and phrases such as "coma and even death," "dangerous," "seizures," "serious harm," "hospitalized," and "highly toxic."  Wow!  Based on these dire warnings, you'd think that Ivermectin would literally kill you on the spot, wouldn't you?  The FDA claims to "follow the science" so why is it demonizing and attacking Ivermectin, a medication it approved in 1996?  And the MSM fake media rags are jumping on board too.  For example, Rolling Stone completely fabricated a recent story trying to destroy ivermectin, it blew up in their faces in spectacular fashion.

Red Cross is warning all Americans that Covid-vaccinated humans are ineligible for donating plasma.  Hospitals like to use certain plasma that is made up of antibodies from people who have recovered from the China flu to help new China flu victims recover, but the Covid vaccines wipe out those antibodies, rendering their plasma useless.  That means only people who have NOT received the blood-clotting, spike protein injections can donate convalescent plasma to save the new China flu victims.  So now herd theory has completely flipped, where the vaccinated are hurting their own kind by becoming harmful donors, should their vaccinated "cohorts" need blood or organ transplants.  In other words, the Covid-19 vaccines, as admitted by the Red Cross themselves, wipes out any natural antibodies that any person's body has created to fight Covid-19 or its variants, so those people cannot help others fighting and/or dying from the China flu.

NBA basketball stars won't be required to take covid vaccines, just like members of Congress and their staffers.  There is a privileged class of "elites" in this country who have declared themselves exempt from all Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) "vaccine" mandates.  One of them is Congress, and another is the NBA.  According to reports, professional basketball players will not be forced to take an "Operation Warp Speed" injection because they are more special than everybody else.  Well, that and they have a whole lot more money in their coffers to fight against the medical fascism.  ESPN says that the NBA is refusing to budge on its demand that players not be required to take Fauci Flu shots.  In its budget negotiations, the league said that any attempted mandate is a "non-starter" and will not be accepted.

Hospitals are lying about being overrun with covid patients: many facilities are empty.  Another medical field whistleblower has come forward to blow the lid on the media's lies concerning hospital ICUs being "overrun" with Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) patients.  Josh Snider, who worked in facilities management at Missouri Baptist Medical Center (MBMC), personally confirmed that his hospital has been largely empty, despite claims by upper management that it is "overflowing with covid patients."  "I watched our hospital administrators say in the media that our intensive care units were overflowing with covid patients at 98 percent capacity, knowing that it was a complete and utter lie," Snider said.  MBMC is part of a much larger $5.5 billion annual network within the Barnes Jewish Hospital system in St. Louis, which reportedly shut down three of its four ICU floors because all of them were empty.

Approximately 70 people die from COVID vaccines every day in America — VAERS data.  The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) is exploding with vaccine injuries, at a rate never seen before.  The number of injuries and deaths from these vaccines is so immense, all prior vaccine injury data over the past two decades pales in comparison to the carnage observed in 2021.  The government's passive vaccine injury surveillance system has logged over 675,000 adverse reactions from the vaccines in just eight short months.  If these medical issues were divvied up among the roughly 17,000 hospitals in the United States, there have been roughly 40 COVID vaccine injuries for every hospital in the nation.  Over the past forty-seven days of reporting, there have also been 3,296 deaths reported to VAERS.  This is equivalent to SEVENTY deaths per day — a sacrificial routine of medical malpractice and wrongful death that must be stopped.

Hospital staff must swear off Tylenol, Tums to get religious vaccine exemption.  A hospital system in Arkansas is making it a bit more difficult for staff to receive a religious exemption from its COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  The hospital is now requiring staff to also swear off extremely common medicines, such as Tylenol, Tums, and even Preparation H, to get the exemption.  The move was prompted when Conway Regional Health System noted an unusual uptick in vaccine exemption requests that cited the use of fetal cell lines in the development and testing of the vaccines.  "This was significantly disproportionate to what we've seen with the influenza vaccine," Matt Troup, president and CEO of Conway Regional Health System, told Becker's Hospital Review in an interview Wednesday [9/15/2021].  "Thus," Troup went on, "we provided a religious attestation form for those individuals requesting a religious exemption," he said.  The form includes a list of 30 commonly used medicines that "fall into the same category as the COVID-19 vaccine in their use of fetal cell lines," Conway Regional said.

COVID Madness Continues in Australia:  Freedom Will Require Future Booster Shots.  The forceful protest videos from Australia took place near Richmond, Melbourne yesterday [9/18/2021].  Melbourne is the main city in the State of Victoria.  To put some context into what Victorians have been faced with, consider this press conference earlier today from Premier Daniel Andrews.  As Premier Daniel Andrews was explaining the rules of allowing people out of lockdown, he went through a series of steps the government will take to allow people to get back some of their freedom.  Having previously announced that only vaccinated people will be permitted to escape their lockdown status, Andrews was asked about the required vaccination passports; and how long he believes the passports will be required to engage in society.  It appears Premier Andrews slipped a little bit and admitted publicly the vaccination passport will be required for everything, AND it will be needed as the Australian government moves from vaccines to booster shots.

Emmy viewers call out celebs for not wearing masks, social distancing at 2021 show.  The Emmys were skewered on social media as viewers took notice of the lack of coronavirus safety measures, specifically masks.  The 2021 awards show was one of the first to return to the typical in-person format following more than a year of delayed and adjusted ceremonies like the Oscars and Golden Globes.  Few of the stars in attendance on Sunday were seen on the broadcast wearing masks or observing social distancing guidelines.  Although host Cedric the Entertainer noted on the broadcast that everyone in attendance had to show proof of vaccination, as well as test negative for COVID-19, stars like Seth Rogen, came out swinging at the lack of requirements.  He wasn't the only one.

Former FDA Commissioner:  Six Foot Social Distancing Rule Was 'Arbitrary ... Nobody Knows Where It Came From'.  Scott Gottlieb, the former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), admitted during an interview on Face the Nation that the six foot social distancing rule recommended by public health officials for months on end was actually "arbitrary in and of itself," and he noted that "nobody knows where it came from."  Speaking with Face the Nation's Margaret Brennan, Gottlieb discussed the rules and risks early in the pandemic, explaining that the Trump administration shifted its focus to the impact lockdowns and rules would have on the economy and children.

The Cabal That Cried Wolf and Undermined a Republic.  In reality, Covid is nothing more than a really bad case of the common cold.  Bad, certainly, but but basically the common cold nonetheless.  From an epidemiology perspective that may not be completely accurate, but from a societal one it most certainly is.  Like the flu, which kills about 36,000 people annually, Covid is largely transmitted from one person to another via airborne particles.  Over the last 18 months 42 million Americans have gotten Covid and 682,000 Americans have died from it.  The former number is likely much higher — possibly over 100 million — and the latter number is likely much lower, with many of those reported as dying of Covid in reality dying with Covid.  Keep in mind of course that that's 682,000 people in a country of 350 million, and 95% of the dead had on average 3 or more co-morbidities and the average age was almost 75.  A little more perspective:  Heart disease annually kills 650,000 Americans while cancer kills 600,000.  We spend $350 billion a year on heart disease and $158 billion on cancer.  That works out to be $538,000 spent per person who died of heart disease and $263,000 per person who died of cancer.  Covid is a bit different.  Through March of this year the US spent $13 trillion on Covid and will likely reach $20 trillion by the end of the year.  By the end of the year the death total "from" Covid will likely hit 800,000.  That works out to be approximately $25 million per death.

Emmy awards show us the masks of the peasants.  If there's any further need of spotting a new class divide emerging, well, take a look at the Emmy awards, held at Staples Center in Los Angeles, last night. [...] In California, the original mask rule put into place last year had it that at restaurant gatherings, people sitting down could take off masks to eat while those serving them and walking around would keep their masks on.  Well, as the Emmys show, and the Met Gala before it, that rule has morphed.  Everyone walks around now, but only the servants wear masks.  It's like they're slaves now, or lepers, putting on masks to prevent their diseases spreading.  Never mind what the elites may be spreading, only the peasants must be covered.  In black, no less, no cartoon colors.  The Taliban likes to cover people it oppresses, too, such as women.  It's not so different here.

The Only People Wearing Masks At the Emmys Were Servants.  Your children and grandchildren cannot eat in a public school cafeteria without wearing a mask and remaining socially distant; so sayeth the rule-makers.  However, proving once again that masks and social distancing are a theater of social construct that does not apply to the self-proclaimed elites, the only people wearing masks at the Hollywood Emmy awards tonight were the servants.  [Photo]  It's not hypocrisy really.  The reality is the COVID-19 rules are based on perpetrating a ruse, a total and utter fraud.  They don't believe their own message; because they know the rules they espouse to support do not apply to them.

Doctor During FDA Zoom Meeting Drops Bombshells!  Over 1000% Increase In Adverse Effect In 2021, Vaccines Are Causing New Variants.  During a Zoom meeting within the FDA, Dr. Jessica Rose, who has been studying the VAERs data, dropped bombshell after bombshell.  Dr. Rose States Based on The VAERS Data... The Risks Far Outweigh The Benefits Especially For Children.  Over A 1000% Increase In Adverse Events In 2021!  [Video clip]

COVID has turned leftists into child abusers.  One of the most heinous aspects of America's now-pathological fear of COVID is that leftists have turned into child abusers.  Despite strong evidence that children are not COVID spreaders, that COVID affects them only lightly, and that their mortality rate from COVID is infinitesimally small, leftists with power in society have terrorized them with lockdowns and masks, destroying along the way their ability to get educated or learn important social skills and even their will to live.  One of the worst things about this child abuse is the mandates putting masks on toddlers.  Anybody who has ever been with a toddler knows that toddlers are still babies.  They have limited language skills and even more limited impulse control.  And like babies, they are fragile little creatures who wear their hearts on their sleeves and experience every emotion at full volume.  Putting a mask on a baby is tantamount to tying it up to a post in a blizzard.  It's absolutely cruel.  But that's what we're doing.

Australian police arrest 267 lockdown protesters.  Australian police arrested 267 protesters during anti-lockdown rallies Saturday [9/18/2021], with 235 of the arrests made in Melbourne and 32 in Sydney.  The Melbourne protesters gathered to march against Australia's lockdowns, implemented to combat the delta variant.  During the rally, the 700 protesters charged at Australian police, knocking down and trampling several of them.  Victoria Police said six officers required hospitalization, according to Reuters.

Study: COVID recovery gave Israelis longer-lasting Delta defense than vaccines.  Natural immunity from contracting coronavirus provided Israelis with longer-lasting protection against the Delta variant than two shots of the Pfizer vaccine given early this year, new Israeli research suggests.  The study by Maccabi Healthcare Service looked at individuals who had either gotten two shots of the vaccine by the end of February or tested positive for COVID-19 by that time.  It compared 46,035 Maccabi members who caught the coronavirus at some point during the pandemic and the same number of double-vaccinated people.  Natural immunity from contracting coronavirus provided Israelis with longer-lasting protection against the Delta variant than two shots of the Pfizer vaccine given early this year, new Israeli research suggests.  The study by Maccabi Healthcare Service looked at individuals who had either gotten two shots of the vaccine by the end of February or tested positive for COVID-19 by that time.  It compared 46,035 Maccabi members who caught the coronavirus at some point during the pandemic and the same number of double-vaccinated people.  People who had two vaccine shots had a six-fold higher chance of getting infected with Delta than patients who hadn't been vaccinated but previously contracted the coronavirus, according to the research.  The study, published online but not yet peer reviewed, is the largest of its kind.

Vatican Closes Its Doors to Those Without a 'Green Pass'.  The Vatican City State announced Monday that effective October 1 no one can enter its territory without presenting a coronavirus Green Pass, by order of Pope Francis.  The Green Pass can be obtained by showing proof of vaccination against the coronavirus, demonstrating recovery from the coronavirus, or by showing a negative rapid antigen or PCR test, the Vatican ordinance states.

Fearful London:  Falls Soar as People Scared of Catching Covid from Handrails.  Escalator falls at tube stations have increased because Britons are frightened of catching coronavirus if they hold onto the handrails, a London Underground official has said.  Managing Director of London Underground Andy Lord told a Transport for London (TfL) safety panel said the underground railway's biggest risk of harm is:  "falls on escalators caused by people who don't hold the handrail.  There is an issue with the perception that the handrail is not clean because of the pandemic."

Washington State Now Hiring 'Strike Team' for Quarantine Facility With 24/7 Security.  The State of Washington Health Department is advertising open positions for members of a new unit called the Isolation and Quarantine Strike Team.  ["]These positions will staff the State Isolation and Quarantine Facility and provide for the needs of travelers that stay at the facility.  I & Q Strike Team members are in responsible charge of the I & Q Facility during their shift and are tasked with responding to emergencies, training contractors and new staff, and providing guest support as needed.["]  No word if "travelers" and "guests" maintain the ability to come and go as they please.  The state isolation and quarantine facility, located in Centralia, Washington, will initially hire three new employees to staff its Strike Team. [...] One question, though:  Why is a Strike Team needed? [...] If it's voluntary, why do they need 24/7 security?  This doesn't add up.

Sydney Mother Of Two Is Assaulted And Stripped By Police For Walking In Park.  South-western Sydney mother of two who was attacked and indecently assaulted by a gang of out of control NSW Riot Police.  The woman was reportedly walking in an open park when police confronted her and a few other women.  That's when the woman was tackled and her dress removed.  The woman was held down with only her black panties on for about a minute before police realized they were being filmed.  At that point they let her go.  Later, in another video, the woman confronts the officers while holding back tears, asking them for their names, badge numbers, and which precinct they are from.  The offending cops refuse to give their information, which they are required by law.  [Video clip]

What Happens When Vaccine Passport Rules Creating Second Class Citizens are Demanded.  Every word of this monologue by Neil Oliver is so true. [...] I agree with Mr. Oliver in many points including that the lock-downs were purposefully orchestrated in order to make people feel isolated and alone.  When people are isolated, they become fearful.  Those who hold power tenuously need fear in order to keep control.  Mr. Neil Oliver eloquently explains his position that he will not participate in any system of forced or coerced division.  When encountering an institution, business or enterprise that demands vaccinated status as a precondition; we will not participate or lend credibility toward such an abusive fiat by complying with their dictate or demand.  Isolation starts with a rebellion against God, and we must be conscious about the human need to be connected.  [Video clip]

Australian Gestapo Shows Up To Woman's Home After She Posted About Going To Protest On FB, Give Her Stay At Home Order And Threaten Her.  This was the unbelievable scene at this woman's home in Victoria when the jackboot Gestapo showed up after a social media post in which she talks about attending a protest.  The police first ask the woman why she is filming, which is her right.  She replies, correctly, that there's been a lot of police brutality of late, (a 70-year-old woman assault and hip was broken for one), and so she will film for her own protection.  [Video clip]

New footage shows AOC being waited on by masked 'servant class' before Met GalaVogue has released a fawning video showing New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez prepping for the ball last Monday.  It shows her walking into the room wearing her now-notorious "Tax the Rich" ball gown, while masked attendants and staff tell her how beautiful she looks.  [Video clip]  AOC's big smile is made all the more apparent by the masks that cover the faces of the staff attending to her.  Her boyfriend smiles, unmasked, as well.

Aussie Cops Push 70 Year OId Woman, Smashing Her Head, Then Pepper Spraying Her Face.  Melbourne, Australia.  Australian Police attacking an unarmed 70 year old woman by slamming her onto the ground and finishing her off with pepper spray?  Well done to Journalist Marty Focker for capturing this footage.  [Video clip]

Is the FDA COVID-19 Booster Shot Fiasco the Beginning of the End of 'Faucism'?  Dr. Anthony Fauci and his boss, NIH Director Francis Collins, appeared on five of the six Sunday shows this week.  Despite the fact that we have a de facto hostage situation in Afghanistan, the Pentagon admitted to killing ten civilians in a drone strike, and 13,000 Haitians are sitting under the international bridge in Del Rio, Texas, no one from the Pentagon, the State Department, or Homeland Security is making the rounds on the news shows.  This looks like an attempt at image rehabilitation after the FDA resisted political pressure to recommend COVID-19 booster shots for all Americans 16 and older.  The FDA's decision may be a signal that the reign of Fauci is over.  He told Americans that the third dose of the vaccine would provide maximum immunity.  Fauci and President Biden set the expectation that all vaccinated Americans would be eligible for a booster shot.  Even worse, many Americans believe they need it based on their public statements.

Our bodies, their choice.  [Scroll down]  To put this in perspective, what if the government — and/or a private entity — said we all must become vegans?  Or that we can't utilize public transportation if we have more than 15% body fat?  Or that we can't have/hold a job if we are HIV positive?  Or that all females must lop off their breasts and have a penis sewn onto them and all men must lop off their penises and have breasts attached to their persons?  Who would balk at that?  Especially if the WHO, CDC and Dr. Fauci said it was for the best?

Vaccine mandates and the Equal Protection clause.  On September 9, 2021, President Biden stopped merely haranguing American citizens to get vaccinated.  Going forward, he would simply force up to 100 million people to submit to vaccination whether they liked it or not.  Biden didn't mince words as he announced a federal vaccine mandate, telling unvaccinated American citizens that his patience had run out and they were responsible for a lot of damage.  The backlash was swift.  Unions want to negotiate vaccination requirements.  South Carolina governor Henry McMaster accused the administration of thumbing its nose at the Constitution.  The strongest response came from Arizona.  The state filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration, alleging that illegal aliens are being released into the country with no requirement to get vaccinated, which discriminates against United States citizens who are being required to get vaccinated.  The lawsuit argues that the mandate violates the Equal Protection Clause.

Biden's Vaccine Browbeating Backfires, But COVID Rates Fall Anyway.  How can you measure President Joe Biden's sway over the public?  Try looking at the impact his attacks on the unvaccinated have had on immunization rates.  He's managed to drive them down.  Not that it matters, since the number of new COVID cases is falling, even in states with low vaccination rates.  In his remarkably antagonistic Sept. 9 speech announcing vaccine mandates, Biden did everything he could to disparage and shame the unvaccinated.  He blamed them for overcrowding hospitals and "leaving no room for someone with a heart attack."  He said they were causing "a lot of damage" and have "cost all of us."  He said they were "keeping us from turning the corner."  He tried to pit the vaccinated against them, claiming those who had the shot needed protection from the unvaccinated (which is odd, since the vaccine is supposed to protect the vaccinated, isn't it?).

Biden's War on Red State COVID Patients.  For patients with moderate COVID-19 symptoms, monoclonal antibody (mAb) treatments have proven remarkably successful in decreasing hospitalization and death rates.  Moreover, because states and health care providers could order mAb shipments directly from suppliers, they have been utilized to great effect in places that have experienced recent case spikes.  In Florida, for example, the CDC indicates that new COVID deaths have plummeted from an August 26 peak of 356 to only 8 on September 17.  Such success in a red state was obviously galling for the Biden administration, however, so the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) was directed to seize the mAb supply ostensibly to achieve "equitable" distribution.

Is the Biden Administration trying Murder Its Opponents?  Imagine a doctor standing at a patient's bedside.  The patient is deathly ill, and will likely die without the aid of that life-support device resting by his bed. [...] If the doctor wheels the life-saving device out of the room while citing the fact that someone else might need the device in some other hospital at some unknown time in the future, would that be murder?  If the answer to that question is yes, then it is nowhere near approaching hyperbole to suggest that the Biden administration is murdering its opponents by rationing life-saving monoclonal antibody treatments and specifically withholding them from red states due to an apparent grudge.  In fact, the only problem with that assertion is that it implies that Biden is murdering only his opponents.  In Florida, for example, the state was expecting 72,000 treatments, but the Biden administration supplied only a ration of 30,950.

Let me 'Splain' It for You.  Airborne diseases like COVID-19 don't go straight into your blood.  Instead, after you breathe enough virus-laden aerosols in, the air sacs in your lungs get a pretty good covering of virus.  This doesn't make you sick.  But the virus latches onto the pneumocytes (the cells on the inside of the air sacs) and start making more virus.  This means you can share with your neighbor.  In fact, many vaccinated people actually breathe out as much virus as someone who is sick with COVID-19.  But you aren't defenseless.  Your air sacs have "alveolar macrophages," specialized cells that use "Pattern Recognition Receptors" to identify the Wuhan Flu.  Over time, they will clean out the air sacs.  And vaccinated people seem to be infectious for a shorter period than unvaccinated.  The viruses that got into the pneumocytes will create more viruses, and some of those will find their way across the basement membrane (the barrier between blood and air in your lungs) into your bloodstream.  Once there, if your immunity is good, your T-cells and antibodies will get to work.  You may never even know you were infected.  Of course, since the vaccine is only about 85% effective, you might get sick.

Why Did The CDC Stop Recording Vaccine Breakthrough Cases in The U.S. on May 1st? — Today We Got The Obvious Answer, Vaccine Companies Want to Sell Booster Shots.  A "breakthrough case" is the term for a person infecting with COVID-19 after they have been vaccinated.  On May 1st the CDC changed the recording and record keeping of COVID-19 breakthrough cases, and stopped tracking them.  The change was announced July 30th. [...] At the time the CDC stopped tracking the incidents of vaccinated persons contracting COVID-19 and being hospitalized, many people wondered why?  Obviously if you stop recording vaccinated persons who are hospitalized, it will look like only unvaccinated persons are being hospitalized by the variants in the CDC records.  That skews the data and gives the false impression that only unvaxxed persons are getting infected and/or sick.  Which is exactly what happened.  The medical industry and media narrative around the COVID-19 Delta Variant was that unvaccinated people in the U.S. were the majority group at risk.  The data supported that narrative because the breakthrough cases were no longer being recorded.  This makes the vaccine approach look better.  The approach of not counting the breakthrough case hospitalizations also makes the pharmaceutical companies look better; their vaccine looks more appealing & more effective.

A Hinge Moment of History.  It was certainly the weirdest year.  It began with a supremely weird decision by the entire world, except China and Sweden, to tank the global economy.  No one has ever done that before.  The only major economic power to grow last year was China whose GDP is up by, I think, about 2.5 percent compared to declines everywhere else, including some actually catastrophic ones, such as 11% in the UK.  This decision to tank the entire global economy is something that strengthened China, the creator of the virus, and the exporter of the virus, and weakened any opposition to China — and that is how they began. [...] The ability to go to your church, the ability to open your hairdressing salon, the ability to go and get a cheeseburger at your local diner, all these abstract intellectual philosophical issues are now absolutely real for most people around the Western world.  Yet, there has been very little pushback against it.

The Death of Science.  [Scroll down]  We now know from data that a prior case of COVID-19 offers immunity as robust as vaccination.  Why, then, are Joe Biden's proposed vaccination mandates ignoring that scientific fact?  Dr. Anthony Fauci, when asked, seemed at a loss for words.  Is this yet another of the scientific community's Platonic "noble lies," as when Fauci assured the public last year that there was no need for masks?  He later claimed he had lied so that medical professionals would not run out of needed supplies.  Fauci also threw out mythical percentages needed for herd immunity, apparently in an attempt to convince the public that it will never be safe until every American is protected from COVID-19 by vaccination only.  And why was it that hard for the scientific community to postulate a likely origin of COVID-19. Some of the very scientists engaged in gain-of-function research oversaw an investigation with Chinese authorities.  They confirmed the predetermined conclusion that the virus likely had little to do with gain-of-function engineering.  And they saw little proof it was birthed in a Wuhan virology lab.  Yet scientific opinion, emerging evidence, and basic logic have suggested the opposite.

Biden administration worried UN General Assembly meeting could turn into COVID superspreader event.  The White House is concerned that the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting in New York, which kicked off last week, could be a COVID-19 superspreader event.  'We are concerned about the U.N. event being a superspreader event, and that we need to take all measures to ensure that it does not become a superspreader event,' President Joe Biden's Ambassador to the U.N. Linda Thomas-Greenfield said during a press conference Friday [9/17/2021].  World leaders began descending on New York City last week for the annual meeting, and Thomas-Greenfield notes they aren't necessarily abiding by local vaccine requirements and other coronavirus-related restrictions.

Conscientious Objections to the COVID Vaccine Should Be Honored.  As employers and governments have become more stringent with COVID vaccination requirements, many are no longer honoring conscientious or religious exemptions to the vaccine.  Several states have dropped or are in the process of dropping these exemptions.  Some hospitals and health departments, such as the New York Department of Health, have eliminated religious exemptions. [...] In order to make responsible decisions, we must make them from a position of confidence.  But one cannot act from a position of confidence about a medical decision if he is coerced into it.  Vaccine mandates are an example of medical coercion, since they involve penalties of various kinds.  So, vaccine mandates conflict with the obligation of each person to make responsible decisions.  In the absence of conscience-based exemptions, these mandates are unjust and immoral.

Treason. There, Somebody Said It.  The actions of the current administration consistently undermine the welfare of the American people, they are endangering American welfare, and they have snuffed out American lives.  There is no other word for it.  This administration has committed treason.  Multiple fronts in multiple ways, multiple times. [...] At almost every turn this administration seeks to undermine the health, life and welfare of every American.  They do so through both what they choose to take actions on, and what they choose not to deal with.  The outcome of what they are working towards is adding up to a nation that looks like anything but America.  So what do you call it, when the goal is to harm the rights of the average American, defy the principles of our national laws and systems of justice, and implement policy or executive orders that erase our national identity, national priorities, and national security?  What is the term that adequately explains why the administration just this last week revoked life saving monoclonal antibodies from states who need the life saving therapy the most?

Simple solution to vaccine mandate.  President Trump almost ruined the vaccination ruse by claiming HQC as an effective treatment for Covid.  And then a Michigan Democrat had the gall to use HQC touted by President Trump and was cured of Covid within hours of taking the prescription drug.  And she spoke about it.  The evil, greedy morons didn't like hearing about a Covid cure and shut down all mention of the drug along with access to the drug.  If only President Trump had doubled down and shouted to the rafters about HQC at his rallies, I believe the Stupid Years could have ended and he would have remained in office.  President Trump may have noticed at his rallies that the only time he loses his audience is when he mentions taking the Covid vaccine.  Too many adverse reactions to the vaccine have been documented for healthy people to consider taking the shot.  The covid vaccine has become a political football and is one issue that needs to be left with the Stupid Years.  We don't want anything to do with it.

By Withholding Regeneron, Biden Could Be Sentencing Black People to Death.  President Joe Biden's decision to cut deliveries of monoclonal antibodies to southeastern states, in what critics have called a politically-motivated effort to punish Republican states, could end up sentencing black people to death from coronavirus.  On Tuesday, Politico reported that the Biden administration was going to ration the distribution of monoclonal antibodies from Regeneron, given that "demand from a handful of southern states ... accounted for 70 percent of all orders in early September."

Politics must not kill the Constitution.  The Democrats don't even make any bones about being barely above Marxism now.  The party's devolved into a massive muscle arm of the Chinese will.  The battle over health freedom alone proves that.  With the coronavirus — a far less deadlier, far less dangerous disease than the other health problems tied to other vaccine mandates — the proper role of government has been tossed.  Suddenly, for a virus that's reportedly caused or contributed to 666,440 deaths — out of 41.6 million cases, according to the latest from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — suddenly, for this 1.6% fatality count, America's gone bonkers.  Most who contract COVID-19 recover from COVID-19.  Most who test positive for the coronavirus recover from the coronavirus.  Many others walk around positive but unaware, because they don't feel symptoms, so don't get tested.  In other words:  They're not sick.

Biden Opens The Border To The Virus.  The Biden administration barrages us daily with messages designed to spread fear of the coronavirus and convince Americans to take experimental vaccines and make Big Pharma even richer.  The logic is inescapable.  Big Pharma is now being forced to pay judgments in the billions of dollars for the damage it caused in the opioid crisis it created.  They have to recoup those losses somehow.  Meanwhile, though — the same administration that assures us we are all going to die if we don't comply and get "the jab" — has opened the southern border and invited the entire world to walk in, untested.  Then these same individuals, still untested and untreated, are flown or bussed all over the United States at taxpayer expense.  It is as if somehow magically COVID-19 — the disease that has crippled our nation — only affects citizens and legal residents.  The absurdity of this situation is perhaps most evident when one considers the current flood of Haitians entering the nation illegally.  Border Patrol agents have apprehended 15,599 Haitians from January through June this year, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Doctors refused to see woman in person for fear of COVID, she dies of cancer.  The global obsession with the coronavirus — and only the coronavirus — has cost countless lives over the last 18 months.  One mother is lashing out at the U.K. health system after her daughter died of cancer after being refused an in-person doctor's appointment for months.  According to her family, Jessica Brady might still be alive today if only doctors had seen her face-to-face last year.  But Jessica didn't have COVID-19, so she was left to languish at home, according to reports and one online petition.  She died at the age of 27 after doctors failed to spot her tumor in virtual appointments.

New serious study suggests vaccinated are spreading COV more rapidly.  Biden is segregating people according to vaccinations before all the data is in and it might be a terrible mistake.  A new study suggests that the vaccinated are spreading COVID more rapidly.  Biden is instituting segregation, separating the vaccinated and the unvaccinated.  Many African Americans don't agree with mandatory vaccination.  In a recent video, a white man kicked a black family out of a restaurant for not showing their vaccine papers.  There is something very wrong with this.  Governor Ron DeSantis just said today at a Broward monoclonal antibody treatment site, 52% of COVID patients getting treated have been vaccinated.  For [those who are 65 or older, the percentage] vaccinated is much higher.

It's not about COVID, it's about control.  You know, there's an old myth about a frog in a pot.  I'm sure you've heard it.  Supposedly if you put a frog in a pot of boiling water, it will immediately jump out.  But if you put a frog in a pot of cold water and slowly heat up the water, it won't notice until it reaches the boiling point, at which point it's too late.  The frog is cooked.  All the reductions in freedoms we've undergone in the last few decades have ratcheted up astronomically since the COVID scare.  But with Biden's recent vaccine mandates, he may have just thrown the frog into the boiling water.  In other words, he moved too quickly.  Lots of people have said they would never get the vaccine for a variety of reasons.  But now that Biden has imposed mandates, there are screams of outrage.

Joe Biden goes to the beach.  Days before Biden was set to foist COVID booster vaccines onto the public, Biden's FDA flatly refused to recommend boosters at all as a response to containing COVID. That signals a rebellion over Biden's politicization of the COVID crisis to his partisan ends.  It follows from two high-profile resignations of non-partisan professional research leaders, both of whom had signed an article in a professional journal finding booster shots counterproductive, and one of whom also signaled reservations about COVID vaccines for children under 12.  Biden was full of rubbish all along on his claims to 'science' as he pushed for boosters.  As it stands now, Biden can't be believed on anything because his 'science' was outdone by real science.  The FDA didn't want to be a sorry politicized agency the same way the CDC under Dr. Rochelle Walensky had become, taking orders from union operatives instead of following actual research results.  The actual science thus far has found booster shots counterproductive in containing the COVID virus based on research showing that the effective thing to do is get the entire world vaccinated, so that variants can't develop from third world countries.  Other science, from hyper-vaccinated countries such as Israel, suggests that overvaccinating the public with boosters may be weakening, not strengthening, the human immune system and extending the pandemic.

Detroit TV station asks for stories of unvaxed COVID deaths, gets overwhelming response on deaths and injuries from the vaccines.  There seems to be a yawning chasm between what is believed by media people and what their viewers/readers/listeners care about when it comes to Covid vaccines.  The nonstop barrage of propaganda telling us to get vaxed seems to have convinced many media people that the public has bought into Joe Biden's efforts to demonize those who choose to avoid the experimental gene therapies.  (The fact that all 3 major vaccines have just been rebranded with new names suggests that the pharmaceutical companies are detecting a certain level of resistance, but the media are slower to catch on.)  On September 10, the local Detroit TV station WXYZ used its Facebook page to ask families for stories about unvaccinated loved ones lost to COVID "for a story we're working on."  Pretty clearly, the expectation was that they could present tragic stories of those foolish people who ignored the wisdom of Joe Biden (and the medical, media, and corporate establishments) and suffered the tragic consequences.

Freedom Loving Patriots Charge Police In Melbourne Like A Scene Out Of Braveheart.  Viral footage has been posted on social media of Melbourne protesters charging through police lines as thousands of Queenslanders gathered in Brisbane for a Freedom Day rally.  The demonstration started at 12pm after a crowd gathered at Richmond Town Hall, which is located a few blocks down from the local police station.  Later in the day the mood turned violent with protesters tackled to the ground by officers and protesters charging through police lines.  [Video clip]

Google Tells Australian Government of $1 Billion Global Campaign to Censor 'COVID-19 Misinformation'.  Google reported to the Australian federal government that it has removed around 800,000 YouTube videos concerning COVID-19, and 275 million COVID-19 apps from across its platform as part of its $1 billion (US $726 million) global campaign to "counter COVID-19 misinformation."  It has also launched a US $3 million fund to wipe out alleged vaccine misinformation.  Google regards official government information from national health departments or the World Health Organization as reliable sources.  Meanwhile, the WHO has noted that information changes over time as the world "learns more about the virus."  Lucinda Longcroft, Google's director of government affairs and public policy for Australia and New Zealand, told a Senate committee on foreign interference through social media in July that Google has extensive automated systems and a global network of staff to remove "false or misleading" COVID-19 content "as rapidly as possible."

Australian Freedom Fighters Battle Totalitarian Tyranny and Government COVID Lockdowns, Protestors Overwhelm Police Efforts to Beat Them.  Things are getting spicy in Australia, specifically the town of Richmond in the Melbourne area.  Righteous anti-lockdown protestors took to the streets against thousands of armed police and heavily geared riot squads prepared to beat them into submission and stop their march.  As the government stormtroopers corralled the peacefully marching protesters into an ever smaller dead end where there were blocked in all directions, a valiant member of the resistance opened a gateway through a housing division enabling the crowd to continue amassing, assembling more supporters and continue marching.  The police then formed a battle formation in the street attempting to cordon-off the remaining roadway and block the march from continuing.  However, after a few tense minutes of standoff the protesters rushed the police and fought their way through.  Google is attempting to block this video.  [Video clip]

You Are Being Tempered For Tougher Battles.  I do not care what all these know-it-alls say.  This is not the last stand.  This is not the last opportunity.  But if we do not win at this juncture, things are sure to get so much worse.  We need to beat back these mandates.  We need to set these tyrants in order.  We need to be on our knees asking the Almighty for wisdom and understanding.  We need to be fighting the most meaningful fights around us, every single day, likely fights that are very local to us and very small in number, fights that may be so local and personal that they seem to affect no one but us.  Once you win a few of those fights, you often start to see how much impact the thing you called "little" or "selfish" really had as it rippled out, far beyond anything you might ever have imagined possible.  Those most important ripples, though, are in your own life when you fight such battles.  Flu season is upon us.  Every year, respiratory viruses are more prevalent and many more die of respiratory virus related illnesses at this time of year.  This year, like last year, they won't call it flu.  They will call it something more scary.  Just like every year, people will die.

'Some of Them Will Die': Alabama Hit [has been] Hard by Monoclonal Antibody Rationing.  The federal government's sudden rationing of monoclonal antibody treatments, which keep Americans who get COVID-19 out of hospitals, is hitting Alabama hard, with some sites already running out of or projected to run out of supply soon.  The antibodies are highly successful at stemming the effects of COVID-19 when given to patients soon after they contract the disease, which is caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.  But a huge jump in demand in recent weeks has left what some officials have described as a national shortage, triggering the federal government to intervene and start doling out what's left.  Stringfellow and Regional Medical Center in Anniston didn't have any of the antibodies left on Wednesday, according to Dr. Almena Free, vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer.  Other facilities in Jefferson and Huntsville counties are struggling to source enough of the treatment, Dr. David Thrasher, a pulmonary critical care physician in Montgomery, said a day later.

Hostess Gets A Beatdown For Demanding Vaccination Papers In NYC.  Looks like not everyone is down with the new, hip segregation.  Three people were arrested for allegedly assaulting a New York City restaurant hostess on Thursday after she asked a group of diners visiting from Texas to show proof they had been vaccinated before seating them.  [Video clip]

DeSantis Office:  Over Half of Those Seeking Lifesaving COVID-19 Treatment in South Florida [are] Fully Vaccinated.  A spokesperson for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis's office said that more than half of those who are seeking monoclonal antibody treatment in the south of Florida are "fully vaccinated" individuals amid supply issues.  "More than half the patients getting the monoclonal antibody treatment in south Florida are fully vaccinated," DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw wrote in response to a comment on Twitter that suggested that only unvaccinated people are the reason why there is a significant demand for monoclonal antibodies.  Florida, she wrote hours earlier, "is above average in vaccination rate" and that "more than half of the patients in south Florida getting monoclonal antibody treatment are vaccinated and have breakthrough infections.  Vaccinated or unvaccinated -Denying treatment to Covid patients is wrong."  Monoclonal antibodies are engineered immune system proteins that boost an immune response against an infection.

COVID Gestapo Arrest People In Sydney For Attending Funeral.  Community members are calling for a more compassionate approach to funerals, especially in hard-hit Western Sydney, following a large police presence and the arrest of four men at Rookwood Cemetery.  NSW Police were called to the 314-hectare cemetery on Wednesday to a funeral that had more than 10 mourners in attendance.  [Video clip]

SF Mayor Caught Partying Maskless in Packed Bar Days After She Announced Indoor Citywide Mask Mandate.  Extreme liberal San Francisco Mayor London Breed was caught partying maskless at a packed club on Wednesday night.  The mayor was singing, dancing and going crazy.  The shocking video footage is confusing many San Fransisco citizens considering just a few weeks ago, Breed issued a citywide indoor mask mandate.  "You know wear your mask, look at the environment, and be aware that COVID is still out there," said Mayor Breed previously said.

One reason for the push for COVID vaccination may be to eliminate a possible control group.  There are a number of reasons to explain the intense push from the Biden administration and the government medical bureaucracy to get people to take the COVID vaccine.  From a wide search of the information available, I find it hard to believe that the actual health of people is one of the reasons.  For example, why demand people with natural immunity get vaccinated?  And why insist on vaccinating children when their risk of serious effects from the virus is minuscule?  It make no scientific sense especially when the vaccine itself can possibly cause serious health issues for the young.  This brings up one of the less talked about reasons behind the vaccination mania.  It's to eliminate a possible control group of non-vaccinated people to which the vaccinated can be compared.

Why is COVID Natural Immunity Being Ignored?  Immunity, according to the CDC website, is "Protection from an infectious disease.  If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without being infected."  They explain that "Immunity to a disease is achieved through the presence of antibodies to that disease in a person's system."  These antibodies are "disease specific."  There are two types if immunity, active and passive.  "Active immunity results when exposure to a disease organism triggers the immune system to produce antibodies to that disease."  This occurs "through infection with the actual disease, resulting in natural immunity, or introduction of a killed or weakened form of the disease organism through vaccination."  COVID has added a twist to the vaccine concept by using messenger RNA rather than attenuated virus to create immunity.  This is a new approach to "vaccination" and if validated as safe and effective, opens the door to disease prevention on a previously unimaginable scale.  But with all new technologies, like self-driving cars, the proof is in the pudding.

U.S. doctor reports a '20 times increase' of cancer in vaccinated patients.  The federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System has reported an astonishing explosion in the number of problems it is seeing with vaccines, as reactions to the COVID-19 shots that have been pushed by politicians over the last year have multiplied exponentially.  Now a doctor has said in a report from Lifesitenews that cancers also are surging.  "Since January 1, in the laboratory, I'm seeing a 20 times increase of endometrial cancers over what I see on an annual basis," reported Dr. Ryan Cole in a March 18 report.  Cole, a board-certified pathologist, owns and runs a diagnostics lab, and made the comments in a video from Idaho state government's "Capitol Clarity" project.

Follow the Science, Even When It Changes (Especially When It Changes).  [Scroll down]  The messaging that went forth to scare the daylights out of everyone and remove every square of toilet paper from every store shelf was flawed from the outset.  The notable exceptions were the few state governments that accurately and effectively identified the hazards to those most at-risk and managed the risks to their citizens.  For the remainder of 2020, the primary strategies to deal with the pandemic were lockdowns, masks, social distancing, handwashing, and hand sanitizers.  There was very little messaging or instruction on dietary supplements or medicines to prevent infection.  We mostly had to rely on ourselves to apply what we knew (the science) about how to avoid illness during the cold and flu seasons and employ our knowledge the best we could against COVID-19.  The scientific community has studiously and conscientiously reviewed the science behind the government-mandated shutdowns, their restrictions to preventative and therapeutic medicines, the masks — all of it.  The best we can conclude after 18 months of the pandemic is that none of it made a significant impact.  For all the very real pain and loss from the government mandates, we didn't change the outcome.

Joe Biden's Angry, Divisive Vaccine Mandate Threat Has Failed Miserably.  A little over a week ago, Joe Biden gave what was perhaps the most disturbing speech a president has given in modern history.  It was everything the media used to accuse Donald Trump's speeches of being.  Biden's anger flowed through divisive rhetoric as he ranted that he was "losing patience" with the unvaccinated.  That division was accentuated by the hysterical claim the vaccinated need to be "protected" from the unvaccinated, a contention that ignores the scientific facts on who can spread COVID (i.e. everyone can).  But the fear was the point.  While there's still no actual OSHA regulation, the clear goal of Biden's speech was to scare people into going ahead and getting the vaccine.  Further, by offering cover, the White House hoped companies would go ahead and enforce their own mandates.  Well, the first data point is in, and it shows that strategy has been a complete failure.

All 3 Major Vaccine Companies Suddenly Have Name Changes for Their Covid Shots — And People are Already Confused.  All three major Covid-19 'vaccine' manufacturers have unveiled new names for their 'fully authorized' jabs, even as two pharmaceutical companies await FDA approval for their products.  Following the lead of Pfizer/BioNTech, which branded its 'fully authorized' (and oddly, unavailable) vaccine "Comirnaty," the second and third largest manufacturers for Europe and Canada, Moderna and AstraZeneca, are also relabeling their Covid shots.  "The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is Comirnaty, the Moderna vaccine will be named SpikeVax, and the AstraZeneca vaccine will be named Vaxzevria," Health Canada said in a tweet Thursday [9/16/2021].  "These are only name changes.  There are no changes to the vaccines themselves," Health Canada added in an attempt to quell confusion.  But even vaccine supporters were confused by the name changes.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed breaks mask mandate at club.  San Francisco Mayor London Breed was caught breaking her own strict mask mandates — to go clubbing with a Black Lives Matter co-founder.  The Democrat, already under fire for her restrictive coronavirus rules, on Wednesday was photographed by a San Francisco Chronicle editor while singing and dancing in a packed jazz club — with no sign of masks.

FDA advisory panel votes against recommending COVID-19 booster shots for most Americans.  A Food and Drug Administration advisory panel voted against green-lighting COVID-19 booster shots Friday for most people — throwing up a major hurdle for President Biden's plan to dole out a third dose to most Americans.  But the independent panel, which reviewed a 23-page FDA briefing document highlighting recent studies, recommended emergency use of a third dose for Americans over age 65 and those at high risk of severe infection.  The panel said more data is needed before it can okay boosters for people ages 16 and older, and that the two-dose Pfizer regimen is still highly protective against the spread of the super-contagious Delta variant for most people.

The rise of mask addiction.  I recently saw a mother taking her children home from school.  Two of the little ones stripped off their masks, enjoying the feeling of the sun on their face[s] as they breathed freely for the first time that day.  The youngest child refused to take off his mask even as his siblings urged him.  His mother told him it was safe to remove the mask, but he continued to shake his head.  "I feel better with it on," he said.  It was one of the saddest things I have ever seen, and I wondered what was in store for a child who has become afraid to go out without a security blanket strapped to his face.  As it happens, it's not only the children who are becoming dependent on their masks.  Adults are succumbing to a need for face coverings.  In Japan, mask dependency has been studied since 2009, when counselor Yuzo Kikumoto coined the term for wearing masks to relieve anxiety or to foster anonymity.

Mask On, Mask Off.  Today the globalists use similar tactics — blind obedience and repetition — to train the American people.  They issue an order, mask on, then rescind the order, mask off.  Then again, mask on, mask off.  A great example is the Pennsylvania school mask policy.  At first masks were optional.  So the children start their school year free from the bacteria-ridden gags.  Then, wham!  ["]On Tuesday Aug. 17, the Bucks County Health Department updated its guidance for school districts, recommending that school officials require masks for all students when they return to class.["]  The health department has no authority to order masks; it can only make "recommendations." But for those who defy the "recommendations," there's an official-looking "order" from the secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health "requiring" universal face coverings.  I know it seems a bit odd for a secretary of anything to issue orders, but the secretary's intervention was necessary after Pennsylvanians stripped Governor Wolf of his emergency powers imposed during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The FDA committed actual science on Friday.  As the hysteria about unvaccinated people demonstrates, the COVID vaccine isn't really a vaccine because it doesn't make those who have had the shots immune to COVID — although there is some evidence that, if they do catch COVID, their symptoms are less severe.  The latest push from the Biden administration is for people to get a third, or even a fourth, "vaccine" shot as a booster.  However, the FDA's advisory panel, ignoring administration pressure, voted by a 16-2 margin to reject licensing Pfizer's booster vaccine for healthy people between 16 and 65.  Only for those at serious risk of COVID did the advisory panel recommend the booster. [...] The vote came one day after the Biden administration said it was going forward with boosters, thanks in large part of Fauci's insistence on their importance.

NYC's Demand That Diplomats Follow Vaccine Mandate Creates Uproar At UN.  New York City's (legally questionable) demand that all representatives and diplomats who attend next week's UN General Assembly meeting show proof of vaccination is threatening to derail the annual summit of world leaders as Russia and China protest the fact that their locally developed vaccines won't be accepted.  NYC's request that diplomats and their entourage show proof of vaccination before being admitted somehow received the backing of General Assembly President Maldivian Foreign Minister Abdulla Shahid.  In a statement released on Wednesday, NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio and International Affairs Commissioner Penny Abeywardena thanked UN diplomats ahead of time for "working with us", calling them "true New Yorkers".

This appears to be rationing motivated by politics:
Biden Administration Send Less than Half the Lifesaving Antibody Treatment Needed to Florida.  The Biden administration this week slashed the doses of lifesaving coronavirus antibody treatment to Florida, giving the state less than half of what is needed for a routine week, prioritizing "equitable distribution" — a move some suspect is a form of revenge against Republican governors whom the president vowed to get "out of the way."  The Biden administration this week began to cut the distribution of monoclonal antibodies to red states, such as Florida and Alabama, contending those states, including Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, and Louisiana, are comprising too big a share of the supply in recent weeks — 70 percent.

DeSantis [Will] Buy Antibodies Direct From [the] Manufacturer After Biden Tried Crippling Florida.  In a defiant move against President Joe Biden, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis will be buying antibody treatments against COVID-10 directly from the manufacturer after Biden purposely slowed the supply to Florida, putting many Americans in danger.  "Just last week on September 9th, President Joe Biden said that his administration would be increasing shipments of monoclonal antibodies in September by 50%, and yet on September 13th, HHS announced that it was seizing control of the monoclonal antibody supply and that it would control distribution, and then on September 14th, the announcement was more than 50% of the monoclonal antibodies that had been used in Florida were going to be reduced," DeSantis said.

Florida's DeSantis Responds to Biden Limiting Florida COVID Therapeutics — Announces Monoclonal Antibody Purchases Directly From Glaxo Smith Kline.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis responded directly to the White House effort to kill Florida residents by withholding previously agreed shipments of Monoclonal Antibodies.  During a press conference earlier today, Governor DeSantis outlined the issues Florida is facing after the Biden administration instructed the federal offices of HHS to punish the successful therapy and recovery efforts of the sunshine state healthcare system.  DeSantis outlines the purchase agreement that Biden intentionally violated and also the issues created by the federal government now blocking direct purchasing of treatment from the manufacturer.

Ron DeSantis Makes Total Boss Move After Biden HHS Takes Over Monoclonal Antibody Treatment Distribution.  As we reported earlier, the Biden administration announced this week that they are effectively taking over the distribution of monoclonal antibody treatments used in the treatment of the Wuhan virus, a move that has understandably angered some southern state governors who have touted the benefits of its use in people who are in the early stages of battling the coronavirus, specifically in how it significantly reduces the chance of hospitalization. [...] DeSantis announced just a few hours ago that he was trying to work with another provider — GlaxoSmithKline — in hopes of being able to purchase the antibody treatments directly, doing an end-run around the Biden administration.

Uttar Pradesh, India Announces State Is COVID-19 Free Proving the Effectiveness of Ivermectin.  The Gateway Pundit previously reported that COVID cases are plummeting in India thanks to new rules that promote Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine to its massive population.  The 33 districts in Uttar Pradesh, India have now become free from COVID-19 government informed on Friday.  The recovery rate has increased up to 98.7% proving the effectiveness of Ivermectin as part of the "Uttar Pradesh Covid Control Model."  Of course, the media won't mention that Ivermectin is being used for the treatment of COVID-19.

San Fran's Mayor Announces Indoor Mask Mandate, Gets Caught Partying Maskless at Night Club Only Days Later.  In the aftermath of California Gavin Newsom's recall election victory, the radical leftists in the state are taking off their masks.  Literally.  San Francisco's Mayor London Breed was caught on video partying like it's 2099 at a local night club on Wednesday night without wearing a mask.  [Tweet]

White House Attempts to Justify Withholding Monoclonal Antibody Treatments From Florida and Red States, Fails Miserably.  If the political parties were reversed, the entire White House press corps would be having apoplectic fits about the White House withholding COVID-19 treatments from New York or California, with endless articles written about how Donald Trump was intentionally politicizing healthcare and purposefully killing his political opposition.  Seriously, not an exaggeration; there would be no bigger scandal in the U.S. right now, and congress would be having emergency hearings with subpoenas already en route to HHS officials.  Alas, as the administration of Joe Biden steps in to take control over Monoclonal Antibody (mAb) inventories and distribution, block red states from receiving the treatment, and making grand pronouncements about controlling supply based on "equity", the White House press corps sits on their hands, except Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson.  Watch Jennifer Psaki lie, twist, obfuscate and manipulate the discussion in an attempt to defend an indefensible position when questioned by Robinson about Biden's recent moves to punish Florida.  This is one of the most insufferably twisted answers from the podium to date.  [Video clip]

Italy mandates COVID-19 health pass for all workers.  Italy approved a measure on Thursday [9/16/2021] to require digital vaccine certificates for all workers, making it the first European country to mandate COVID-19 health passes.  The "green pass" will require employees in both public and private sectors to present a digital pass that shows proof of vaccination, a recent negative COVID-19 test, or proof of recovering from a recent infection.  The decree passed by Prime Minister Mario Draghi's government begins on Oct. 15 and will remain in force until the end of the year, according to Euronews.

States See Looming Monoclonal Antibody Crunch as Biden Administration Rations Doses.  Some states are set to receive fewer doses of monoclonal antibody treatments after the Biden administration switched the distribution system this week.  Demand for monoclonal antibodies, used to treat non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients, has shot up in recent weeks, leading to what some officials have described as a shortage.  The Biden administration tipped off states in early September that it was limiting distribution of the treatment before abruptly switching on Sept. 13 from letting sites directly order the doses to putting the federal government in charge of allocation to states, which can then choose where to send them.  Some state officials say they weren't notified of the change until late Sept. 13, and that pending orders with AmerisourceBergen, the primary distributor in the old model, were being closed out.

Florida landlord to evict tenants who refuse to get vaccinated.  A Florida landlord has told tenants to get vaccinated or leave the apartment building.  Jasmine Irby told The Washington Post that when she left her South Florida apartment last month, she saw a notice from the management company of the building fastened to her door.  "As of August 15th, all new tenants must show proof of vaccination before moving in ... Existing tenants must show proof of vaccination before leases are renewed," the notice said, adding that the rule also applied to employees who worked at the building.

Today's blacklisted Americans:  Any tenant not vaccinated in Florida apartment complex.  They're coming for you next:  A Florida landlord is now demanding that any future tenant show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or they will be turned away, and any present unvaccinated tenant move when their lease expires.  ["]If you're not vaccinated for COVID-19, you can forget about moving into any of eight apartment complexes in Broward and Miami-Dade counties owned by Santiago A. Alvarez and his family.  And if you're still unvaccinated when it comes time to renew your lease, you'll have to find someplace else to live.["]

How States And Communities Can Fight Back Against Biden's Covid Tyranny.  A war is coming.  I have heard it argued that this war must be avoided; that it is "exactly what the establishment wants." I disagree.  I think globalists like those at the World Economic Forum certainly want enough chaos to provide cover for the implementation of their global "Reset" agenda, but they don't want a full blown rebellion.  They only want events in which the outcome is controllable or predictable — They do not want a massive organized resistance that might surprise them.  Ultimately it doesn't matter because the war is already at our doorstep.  A person has two choices:  Fight or be enslaved.  There is no third option.  There is no walking away.  There is no hiding from it and there is no passive solution to it.  Joe Biden's recent declaration of a federal level nationwide vaccine mandate has all but ensured that conflict is inevitable.  Why?  Because it is the first major step towards a two-tier society in which the unvaxxed are cut out of the economy.  The next step?  Forced vaccinations under threat of fines and imprisonment, the threat of confiscation of one's children, or vaccination at the barrel of a gun.

Deaf Woman Terrorized by Mask-Obsessed Store Clerks After Asking to Read Their Lips.  [Shannon] Heroux is an Uber driver and went into her favorite Dunkin' Donuts store to get an iced tea in Encino, California.  When she tried to order her drink, she asked the employee to take down her mask so she could read her lips, informing her that she is deaf.  Heroux says she wears a cochlear implant but did not have it on that day and could hear nothing.  Instead of giving reasonable accommodations to Heroux, like pulling down her mask or writing down her words, the staff member continued talking behind her mask while Heroux heard nothing.

FDA Advisory Panel Rejects COVID Booster Shot for Most Americans.  An advisory panel to the Food and Drug Administration on Friday recommended against approving a booster shot of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to most Americans.  The scientific advisory committee voted 16-to-3 against recommending the additional shots, thwarting the Biden administration's hopes that the FDA would approve the third shot in time to begin rolling out the extra dose for Pfizer recipients next week.  However, the panel voted 18-0 in favor of recommending a booster shot for anyone over 65 or anyone who is at high risk of severe disease from COVID-19.  The vote followed a day-long debate in which a number of the panel's independent experts questioned whether the data justified a broad rollout of an additional shot to most Americans while the vaccines still appear to offer strong protection against severe COVID-19 disease and hospitalization.

Nine big cats at the National Zoo presumptively test positive for COVID-19.  Nine big cats at Smithsonian's National Zoo have presumptively tested positive for COVID-19.  The Washington, D.C., zoo on Friday announced that six African lions, a Sumatran tiger and two Amur tigers might have caught the illness and have experienced decreased appetites, coughing, sneezing and lethargy.  Fecal samples of the lions and tigers were collected and tested presumptively positive, with final results expected in the coming days.  Animal keepers are treating the cats with anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea medication as well as antibiotics for presumptive secondary bacterial pneumonia.

Menstrual Changes After COVID-19 Vaccination Should Be Actively Investigated:  Reproductive Immunologist.  The possible link between CCP virus vaccinations and menstrual changes should be investigated to clear up the doubts, a reproductive immunology lecturer from Imperial College London said.  In an editorial published on Thursday [9/16/2021] in the British Medical Journal, Dr. Victoria Male said failing to thoroughly investigate reports of menstrual changes after CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccination will likely fuel fears that the vaccines can hurt women's chances to have children.  According to the editorial, by Sept. 2 more than 30,000 cases of menstrual disorders and unexpected vaginal bleeding after vaccination had been reported in the UK to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency's (MHRA) yellow card surveillance scheme for adverse drug reactions.  On Aug. 16, the MHRA published an update saying "the rigorous evaluation completed to date" did not support a link between changes to menstrual periods and related symptoms and CCP virus vaccines.

Biden cuts off Republican states' supply of an important COVID treatment.  From the beginning, Democrats have used COVID to gain control over Americans.  They've been uninterested in treatment and have focused entirely on locking Americans up and, now, forcing a very new, minimally-tested, and remarkably ineffective vaccine on them.  A few Republican-run states, however, have had a different approach.  They've tried to protect the vulnerable and, now that monoclonal antibody drugs seem to stop the virus in its tracks, they've been increasing citizens' access to that treatment.  Biden has responded by rationing these drugs so that the states that want them get fewer doses than citizens desire.  From the beginning of this pandemic, Democrats have furiously fought against COVID treatments.  In 2020, their ferocious hostility to potential treatments such as Hydroxychloroquine (a drug I was given without even a warning as a prophylactic against malaria when I went to Cambodia), seemed to arise from their desire to ensure that as many people as possible died on Trump's watch, helping to deny him an election victory.

Nicki Minaj Just Learned They Want Her Vote, Not Her Opinion.  Who knew that rapper Nicki Minaj would emerge as a champion for free speech and an outspoken critic of censorship?  Even stranger — Minaj found herself retweeting Tucker Carlson while Carlson championed her on his nightly show.  Strange times indeed — but alas "adversity makes strange bedfellows."  Minaj just learned rule number one of the modern illiberal party — there is zero room for liberty of thought.  Her critical error was having the audacity to question the vaccine narrative and encouraging people to make their own decisions.

What the New CDC Report on Unvaccinated Left Out.  A newly published CDC study prompted the MSM to run headlines like "New study finds unvaccinated are 11 times more likely to die from Covid, CDC says," "Unvaccinated people were 11 times more likely to die of covid-19, CDC report finds," and "Unvaccinated People Are 11 Times More Likely To Die Of COVID-19, New Research Finds."  It surely looks scary if you read only those headlines.  I was curious about what the report actually says, and doesn't say.  Below is what I found.  [#1] The purpose of the report is for propaganda:  The report admits in its Discussion section that "the data assessed from 13 jurisdictions accounted for 25% of the U.S. population, and therefore might not be generalizable."  But it still suggests that "[t]he data might be helpful in communicating the real-time impact of vaccines (e.g., persons not fully vaccinated having >10 times higher COVID-19 mortality risk) and guiding prevention strategies, such as vaccination and nonpharmacologic interventions."  No wonder the MSM outlets quickly spread this message around.

Obamacare Mutates for the Labor Market.  With the announcement this week that the Biden administration will attempt a takeover of U.S. labor markets by forcing private companies to vaccinate their employees, the limits of our Constitution are being tested before our eyes.  With 210 million Americans now vaccinated with at least one dose against COVID-19, we're seeing 300 percent of the national cases that we saw one year ago, when nobody was vaccinated.  As a public benefit, the vaccine has failed to accomplish its most vital public goal, which is neutralizing the virus.  On the contrary, it appears to have accelerated its spread and possibly its mutation.  Ignoring the questionable efficacy of the vaccines in providing public benefit, we've decided that lashing out at the remaining third of eligible individuals who haven't received the vaccine is now an appropriate response.  It makes exactly zero sense that the unvaccinated are now the greatest threat to those protected by the vaccines.  Where have the rational scientific minds gone?

Masks for waiters and servants — but not for AOC and the rest.  Lost in all the marveling at AOC's cheek and/or cheeks was that the peons at the event (which required vaccinations) were wearing masks, but the celebrities got to schmooze and kiss and hug and clink glasses without ever smearing their makeup on face masks.  Does the Delta variant care if you were once on the cover of Vogue or had a hit song?  The Party of the People just can't stop parading through places where the working stiffs Katie Couric dubbed "the great unwashed" are literally forced to hide their faces lest they exhale upon the primped and anointed. [...] However, to everyone but AOC's fans, the optics were:  Why do fancy people get to go maskless while the rest of us have to Pampers-strap our faces?  At the Met, suffering proletarian Morlocks in masks served Champagne to the elegant Eloi, took pictures wearing masks, pulled security wearing masks, even stumbled behind the royalty wearing masks so they could do things like hold up AOC's train to keep it from getting dusty.

A pandemic of the incompetent, not the unvaccinated.  First, the CDC and NIH watched the virus ravage China and did nothing.  Next, they told President Trump that it was xenophobic to stop travel from China.  Next, they told us the virus was not transmitting human to human.  Next, they changed, without reasoning, the reporting requirements for potential deaths associated with the virus to guarantee a higher death total in the U.S.  Next, they misrepresented the data for the projected death toll in America with a completely incorrect model.  Next, they told us to shut down the country for two weeks to slow the spread.  Next, they told us a vaccine in less than a year was impossible.  Next, they pushed mask mandates with no science to back them up. [...] Next, they supported crazy items like mandatory masking outdoors, no swimming in public pools, and wearing a mask in your own home.  Next, they continued to keep businesses closed past the two-month mark, and they fail to provide evidence that closing any business helped slow the spread.  Next, they started paying people extra unemployment benefits while removing all incentives to look for work.

Self-medicating for COVID with Cheap Drugs.  With the recent spate of "breakthrough cases," we're seeing the fully vaccinated getting infected with SARS-2, the novel coronavirus the world has been battling the last two years.  Since the vaccines don't always prevent infection but do lessen the severity of symptoms when they do fail, one might think of the COVID vaccines as therapeutics.  That simple observation occurred to this writer before hearing it made by Alex Berenson on the August 30 episode of Tucker Carlson's Fox News program.  If one watches the three-minute video, at the 53-second point one hears Berenson say this:  "If you look at the efficacy and duration of the vaccines, it's probably more accurate to call them therapeutics than vaccines."  A very similar statement had just gotten Mr. Berenson knocked off of Twitter.

Leaked Zoom Video Reveals Hospital Officials Discussing COVID-19 Scare Tactics.  A leaked Zoom conference reveals a doctor questioning how to increase the count of COVID-19 patient numbers on the hospital's dashboard report.  The media outlet National File said it obtained the recording from an "internal source" at the Novant Health System that includes New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, North Carolina.  National File posted the video on its Twitter feed on Sept. 10.  National File and other local media outlets that reported on the leak identified the people in the video as Mary Kathryn Rudyk, a physician at the medical center, who is asking Carolyn Fisher, the hospital's director of marketing, how to inflate the number of people classified as COVID-19 patients for the purpose of generating fear in the unvaccinated.  "I think we have to be more blunt, we have to be more forceful — we have to say something coming out — if you don't get vaccinated, you know you are going to die," Rudyk said in the video.  "Let's just be really blunt to these people."

Another COVID 'Fact' Turns Out To Be A Wild Exaggeration.  We keep hearing how hospitals are being overrun with COVID patients because of those dastardly unvaccinated.  This has certainly made the Delta variant look highly dangerous, helped keep people in a state of panic, and ginned up support for draconian vaccine mandates.  But is it as bad as we're being told?  Two studies suggest that all the talk of mass hospitalization from the COVID outbreak is a huge exaggeration.  Researchers found that a substantial number of those admitted to hospitals — adults and children — either have minor symptoms or were checked in for something else but happened to test positive for COVID after being admitted.  Of course, that's not the message the public is getting.

It's Starting to Seem Like the Pandemic Is a Problem the Biden Administration Doesn't Really Want to Solve.  In early August, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took the fight against the COVID-19 Delta variant to the streets.  He traveled the entire state, opening infusion centers so Floridians could receive monoclonal antibodies (MAs) as outpatients when they tested positive for the virus.  The state's surgeon general issued a blanket order that allowed patients to receive them without obtaining a physician's order.  Then DeSantis held dozens of press conferences using the slogan "Early Treatment Saves Lives" to raise awareness.  Despite communications from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and an entire web page on accessing the treatment, many Americans remained in the dark.  Most hadn't heard of Regeneron, one brand of the treatment, since President Donald Trump received an infusion in the fall of 2020. MAs received an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) shortly after that.  And the NIH finally added them to the recommended treatment protocol in the late spring of 2021.

Biden Administration Takes Control of Monoclonal Antibody Drugs in Order to Block Treatments in Red States and Ration Equitable Treatment.  When Joe Biden's Health and Human Services made the announcement earlier this month that they were taking full control over Monoclonal Antibody drugs (mAb) in order to begin rationing the highly effective treatment for COVID-19 infection, several people sounded alarm bells as there was the potential for rationing of COVID treatment based on political ideology.  Representative Chip Roy of Texas was one of the first to raise concerns.  The change in HHS approach followed republican governor Ron DeSantis of Florida promoting the use of mAb and opening up dozens of treatment centers throughout his state.  Other governors quickly took notice of the effective action plan of DeSantis in Florida and started to follow that path.  As soon as HHS noticed the red state governors were working on a effective treatment alternative to the vaccine approach, HHS appears to have moved in to block it — thereby restricting the treatment pathway in order to enhance the vaccine approach.

What Travel During COVID Reveals.  The bad news is that the "turnkey totalitarianism" that observers on both the political Left and Right have been warning about for years — the ability of first world governments and their Big Tech co-conspirators to shut off civil liberties with the flip of a switch — is painfully apparent when you travel.  The government of Australia is only the most obvious example.  Overnight, Australia has gone from being one of the world's most highly rated democracies to a dystopian nightmare, with the government banning all travel not merely internationally but also between individual regions and cities.  Like the former "democratic people's republics" in the old Soviet bloc, Australia now bars its own citizens from leaving the country (whether vaccinated or COVID-free or not) and has instituted state-of-the-art surveillance technologies, similar to what East Germany's old secret police implemented, to ensure that its cowering citizens comply with orders to stay locked in their homes.  Not lost on constitutionally aware Americans is the reality that Aussies voluntarily surrendered all their weapons in 1996 following a mass shooting — and so, as the Hill recently put, "the state and federal governments well know that they have a monopoly on authority — and force."

Does the AMA Really Care About Human Life?  [Scroll down]  COVID has inexplicably made previous medical ethics and science regarding infectious disease and immunology obsolete.  Limited studies are used to definitively declare that masks, which have not previously been found to limit the spread of respiratory diseases like influenza, are now able to effectively prevent the spread of COVID.  Vaccine immunity is suddenly more valuable than natural immunity and mandatory experimental therapy is completely ethical.  Healthy COVID-positive people are quarantined because asymptomatic transmission is, without solid data, declared to be a major source of infections.  Off-label medications such as ivermectin, despite positive studies abroad, are suddenly dangerous because patients cannot determine whether to use the horse pill or the human pill.  People with minimal risk from disease should get the vaccine simply because someone says so.  Every day I receive hate emails from "authoritative" medical websites and organizations, designed to bully me into believing new facts, never defended with sound scientific data.  Recently the American Board of Family Medicine emailed a threatening and insulting form letter without any accompanying details, warning me that it is unethical to spread false information about COVID.

Vax mandate 'work-around' using OSHA not nearly as clever as they thought.  The plan to force Americans into receiving an experimental drug that acts on their RNA faced some big obstacles, including Joe Biden's promise that he wouldn't do it; decades of Democrats' rhetoric over "my body, my choice"; and the CDC's admission that it lacks the power to do so.  But Biden's chief of staff, Ron Klain, seems to think of himself as a pretty smart fellow, a guy who gets things done.  Maybe that's why he exulted over the approach the administration is taking to force Americans to inject the experimental gene therapy into their bodies. [...] "Work-around" has such a nice bureaucratic insider ring to it.  It bespeaks a command of the intricacies of government, the details of rules, regulations, and precedents, and a mastery of the incredibly complex organization.  But it turns out that "working around" by piling responsibilities on OSHA (The Occupational Safety and Health Administration), part of the Department of Labor, overlooked a small problem:  OSHA is incapable of handling the responsibility.

Why is Biden so angry about unvaccinated people?  The current White House occupant is using the bully pulpit of the presidency and the might of the federal bureaucracy to try to put fear into all Americans.  This appears to me to be in response to Americans challenging the false narratives, putting fear aside, and thinking for themselves.  Biden is upset not just because we are unvaccinated.  He seems more upset that despite a relentless eighteen months of fear porn, suppression of all items of hope, etc., people are not trusting the (incompetent) leadership.  We are not afraid for ourselves.  We want the "at risk" to get the vaccine.  We want anyone who is afraid to get the vaccine.  But for those of us who are low-risk and know there are treatment options, we are making a choice.  By making that choice, we are demonstrating that we are not afraid of the virus.

Colorado teachers could be imprisoned for ignoring mask mandates.  Brian Ewert, the superintendent of Littleton (Colorado) Public Schools, recently informed his school board that they could be held criminally liable for not enforcing the mask mandate.  He did so because Colorado's Tri-County Health says that if educators don't enforce its mask mandate, they will be subject to a class 1 misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and a $5,000 fine.  Yes, teachers and administrators could be charged, arrested, prosecuted, and jailed if they don't wear masks themselves in school, and if they fail to force their students to wear them, too.

Biden Administration Takes Control of Monoclonal Antibody Drugs in Order to Block Treatments in Red States and Ration Equitable Treatment.  When Joe Biden's Health and Human Services made the announcement earlier this month that they were taking full control over Monoclonal Antibody drugs (mAb) in order to begin rationing the highly effective treatment for COVID-19 infection, several people sounded alarm bells as there was the potential for rationing of COVID treatment based on political ideology.  Representative Chip Roy of Texas was one of the first to raise concerns.  The change in HHS approach followed republican governor Ron DeSantis of Florida promoting the use of mAb and opening up dozens of treatment centers throughout his state.  Other governors quickly took notice of the effective action plan of DeSantis in Florida and started to follow that path.  As soon as HHS noticed the red state governors were working on a effective treatment alternative to the vaccine approach, HHS appears to have moved in to block it — thereby restricting the treatment pathway in order to enhance the vaccine approach.

If Government Concern for Your Health was Real (and not Political)....  Many Americans wonder why there is such a shove to get everyone "vaccinated" against COVID with something that is not actually a vaccine at all.  The CDC just admitted as much.  The COVID "vaccine" does not provide immunity; it will merely "produce protection" — and you can still get the virus, and you can still pass it on.  The CDC even changed their definition of "vaccine" to accommodate a nifty Stalinesque re-pack of the word and an Orwellian twist of "truth."  As to government's "concern" for us, well, if it's real, why is there no mandate that men shave their beards?  Expecting a mask on top of a beard to guard against a microvirus is like putting a Band-Aid on a Brillo pad, pouring water on it, and expecting none to get through.  Mandates are not for health; they're for coercion and reinforcement to the idea that government knows best and you should obey.

FDA-Approved Prescription Drugs Later Pulled from the Market.  Below are the 35 drugs we could find that have been recalled from the US market since the 1970s, some that had been in use since the 1930s.  A sample of advertisements for only some of the drugs are included because there is a scarcity of ads for withdrawn drugs online due to manufacturers removing ads for withdrawn drugs as part of the agreement to no longer market the drugs.  According to the FDA, a "drug is removed from the market when its risks outweigh its benefits.  A drug is usually taken off the market because of safety issues with the drug that cannot be corrected, such as when it is discovered that the drug can cause serious side effects that were not known at the time of approval."

Reason to Fear a Vaccine Mandate.  Growing up Jewish in a small town in the north of Quebec under the sway of an ultramontane clergy, I know what it is to be publicly mocked, prohibited as an undesirable from entering certain local establishments, and fighting my way out of ambushes when walking to school. [...] Now, as a member of the tribe of the unvaccinated, I sense once again that primal fear of exclusion and imminent violence.  As I wrote in an earlier article for PJ Media, my wife and I are under virtual house arrest, prevented from crossing our provincial borders, forbidden to attend a wide range of public activities and venues, including movie theaters, plays, sporting events, gyms, swimming pools, night clubs, concerts, conferences, and university seminars, or to dine in restaurants.  I am back in the Quebec of my youth.

It's Time to Fight.  Using four of our own civilian airliners against us, the 9/11 hijackers were able to cause us great, but temporary harm.  Our response to those attacks — I'm speaking here of the so-called PATRIOT Act, forever wars, and our own intel agencies, weaponized against us — have hurt us far more than any hijacker ever could.  All that was just in the first ten years.  Since then, social media giants have gained a stranglehold on internet traffic — and which voices will be allowed to be heard.  Worse, Big Tech is working hand-in-hand with Washington to foster neverending COVID panic.  Their goal is to make the American people willing to accept a permanent curtailment of our liberties.

Los Angeles County to require vaccination proof at bars, large events.  Los Angeles County will require customers and workers at indoor bars and nightclubs to be vaccinated against Covid-19 starting next month, health officials said Wednesday [9/15/2021].  The rules for the nation's most populous county will start Oct. 7, the county health department said about the order to be issued this week.  Customers and employees at bars, wineries, breweries, nightclubs and lounges will have to have at least one vaccine dose by Oct. 7 and both doses by Nov. 4.  It does not apply to indoor restaurants but is recommended.  At outdoor events of more than 10,000 people, attendees will have to verify vaccination or a recent negative Covid-19 test, the department said.

Consume and cover!  Harvard instructs students on how to eat and drink with masks.  Harvard University, the home of people with high SAT scores, seems to think its elite students need some tutelage in table manners especially since everyone there must mask up even in the cafeteria/dining hall.  Face masks are required within indoor settings on campus, the "safe-behavior" recommendations from Dr. Giang T. Nguyen, Harvard's health services executive director, include the quick-sip rule and consume and cover, which could give a new meaning to dine and dash.  Eating slowly, which is often good for digestion, seemingly means that students have to fiddle with their masks the entire time, pursuant to Harvard's protocol.

Why the Biden COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate is Unconstitutional.  On September 9, President Biden announced he would circumvent the democratic process, ordering the Secretary of the Department of Labor to require employers with over 100 workers to "ensure their workforces are fully vaccinated or show a negative test at least once a week."  This was essential, as Biden said, "to protect vaccinated workers from unvaccinated workers."  As we have explained, the Secretary of Labor will issue these regulations through OSHA by way of an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS).  The ETS would allow the Secretary of Labor to issue the vaccine mandate without the normal administrative rulemaking requirements (like notice and public comment periods).  While the Biden Administration tells the public that there's no time to waste in issuing the mandate, the truth is that OSHA/Labor failed to argue the necessity of a vaccine mandate since the vaccines have been available [for] a time period approaching one year.

The Masking of the Servant Class:  Ugly COVID Images From the Met Gala Are Now Commonplace.  From the start of the pandemic, political elites have been repeatedly caught exempting themselves from the restrictive rules they impose on the lives of those over whom they rule.  Governors, mayors, ministers and Speakers of the House have been filmed violating their own COVID protocols in order to dine with their closest lobbyist-friends, enjoy a coddled hair styling in chic salons, or unwind after signing new lockdown and quarantine orders by sneaking away for a weekend getaway with the family. [...] But as is so often the case, the most disturbing aspects of elite behavior are found not in what they have prohibited but rather in what they have decided is permissible.  When it comes to mask mandates, it is now commonplace to see two distinct classes of people:  those who remain maskless as they are served, and those they employ as their servants who must have their faces covered at all times.  Prior to the COVID pandemic, it was difficult to imagine how the enormous chasm between the lives of cultural and political elites and everyone else could be made any larger, yet the pandemic generated a new form of crude cultural segregation:  a series of protocols which ensure that maskless elites need not ever cast eyes upon the faces of their servant class.

Something Else [is] Missing.  On September 9th, President Joe Biden made the announcement that all employers with more than 100 employees would be required to enforce a worker vaccine mandate. [...] Almost a week later, and that's the sum total of everything about the biggest economic and workforce disruption in the history of the nation.  That one paragraph posted on September 10th.  Why is this important?  Well, the U.S. Department of Labor website has ZERO mentions of this national mandate.  ZERO, nothing, nada, zilch.  Looking at the OSHA COVID information portal, used by employers and legal execs, will show you the exact same result.  Nothing.  Notice there's no date for DoL or OSHA delivery of any employer guidance or details.  Nothing.  Think about this.  This is the largest nationwide change to employment eligibility requirement in U.S. history.  Nothing else is even close; and yet, if you didn't watch the Biden announcement or read the media discussion about the Biden announcement, you wouldn't be able to find a single detail about it — anywhere.  This is not normal; not even close to normal, even for the federal government.

Data shows increase of vaccinated people among hospitalized Marylanders.  While state data shows the vast majority of Marylanders currently hospitalized with COVID-19 are either unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, the percentage of people fully vaccinated is ticking upward.  Infections, illness and hospitalizations are increasing rapidly among fully vaccinated people, according to data from the Maryland Department of Health and new research.  Some experts said it's time to reframe thinking that the vaccine likely won't prevent you from ever getting sick, but it will probably keep you out of the hospital and almost certainly prevent you from dying.  "It's scary, very scary.  You think you're safe, but you're not," said Deborah Hernandez, of Baltimore County.  Hernandez got her second dose of the Moderna vaccine in the beginning of February.  Seven months later, she got COVID-19.

Cover-up:  Why the 'experts' want to eliminate the COVID control group.  Over the course of the last 18 months, our ruling class and their go-to "pubilc health experts" have uncloaked themselves as nothing more than power-hungry charlatans who believe that they have something resembling a God-given right to manage and control entire populations of people.  They've done nothing but add more problems to our lives on top of a virus problem, and they'd prefer that you never find out about the damage done to humanity by putting faith in this class of "experts."  Their "War on COVID-19" isn't going so well, and there's a massive, ongoing cover-up operation being waged by the "elites," with the goal of eliminating contradictory information that shines a light on their 18 months of incompetence, neglect, and deception.  And when evaluating the success of their endorsed COVID-19 policy measures, our "expert" class in government, academia, the media, and elsewhere never want to talk about countries and areas that took a laissez-faire approach to the COVID-19 pandemic, and ended up having the same, if not better outcomes than countries that observed all of their "expert" advice to a tee.  Through a variety of nation states and free states in the United States, the COVID control group proved, without a shadow of a doubt, that lockdowns, masks, and other "public health expert"-endorsed measures to "stop the spread" did not work whatsoever.  In fact, these policies overwhelmingly caused incalculable residual harm.

New Study:  Nearly Half Of 2021 COVID Hospitalizations Weren't For Severe Cases.  A newly released study has found that nearly half of those hospitalized for COVID-19 in 2021 may have been admitted for another reason entirely, or were mild or asymptomatic for the respiratory virus.  Conducted by a team of researchers from Harvard Medical School, Tufts Medical Center, and the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System, the yet-to-be peer-reviewed analysis examined electronic records for nearly 50,000 COVID hospital admissions at more than 100 VA hospitals across the country.  According to The Atlantic, researchers "checked to see whether each patient required supplemental oxygen or had a blood oxygen level below 94 percent" and if "either of these conditions was met, the authors classified that patient as having moderate to severe disease; otherwise, the case was considered mild or asymptomatic."

California sheriff refuses to enforce vaccine mandate, says government lacks 'authority'.  A California sheriff said he will not enforce any vaccine mandate on employees of his department, citing the government having "no authority to mandate your health choices."  "Over the past couple of weeks, the idea of forced vaccination has caused much concern across the entire country," Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco said in a statement released Monday.  "I will not enforce the vaccine mandate on Sheriff's Department employees."  "The government has no ability and no authority to mandate your health choices," he said.  "As your sheriff, I have an obligation to guard your liberty and freedom."

The Massive Political Risk for Biden and the Democrats With Vaccine Mandates.  When he was elected, Joe Biden was seen by his supporters as a seasoned professional politician, someone who knew Washington, knew how government worked, and knew Congress well enough to break the logjam on the Hill and get things done.  At least, that's how Biden was sold to the American public.  Not surprisingly, that's not the way things have worked out.  Biden has made a bunch of rookie mistakes — unforced errors on the economy, Afghanistan, and now vaccine mandates — that threaten to derail his party and presidency and bury the Democrats in a Republican landslide in 2022.  Josh Kraushaar, National Journal Daily's Senior National Political Columnist, believes that a lack of internal dissent in the White House has resulted in a political operation caught flat-footed when their rosy scenarios on the economy and the pandemic failed to materialize.

Arizona AG Mark Brnovich:  "Today, We Have Filed The First Lawsuit In The Nation Against The Unconstitutional Mandates".  Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is leading the nation as the first to step up and sue the Biden Regime over the unconstitutional vaccine mandate.  The Gateway Pundit reported on the draconian vaccine mandate that Biden has placed on private businesses throughout America.  Arizona is leading the way once again in standing up to the Federal government with a lawsuit from Attorney General Mark Brnovich's office.

After admin saw the vaccine failing, they decided to go with medical tyranny.  The Biden administration decided to mandate vaccines for Americans despite relying on the Israel data which shows the Pfizer vaccine's ability to prevent severe disease and hospitalization is waning over time.  The White House is not following the science.  Remarkably, the US CDC is doing little in the way of effective research and data collection.  As a result, the White House is relying on Israel data to come up with its mandates.  A story in Politico reports that the White House, the CDC, and the FDA used the Israel data to conclude the boosters should begin this fall.  This would be despite a good deal of disagreement.  "The U.S. continues to struggle to collect and analyze reliable Covid-19 data because the federal government has long neglected the country's public health infrastructure," Politico reports.  That is stunning given their enormous budget of over $8 billion.

A new study suggests that almost half of those hospitalized with COVID-19 have mild or asymptomatic cases.  The federal government requires hospitals to report every patient who tests positive for COVID, yet the overall tallies of COVID hospitalizations, made available on various state and federal dashboards and widely reported on by the media, do not differentiate based on severity of illness.  Some patients need extensive medical intervention, such as getting intubated.  Others require supplemental oxygen or administration of the steroid dexamethasone.  But there are many COVID patients in the hospital with fairly mild symptoms, too, who have been admitted for further observation on account of their comorbidities, or because they reported feeling short of breath.  Another portion of the patients in this tally are in the hospital for something unrelated to COVID, and discovered that they were infected only because they were tested upon admission.

Federal Judge blocks New York state vaccine mandate for health care workers.  On Tuesday [9/14/2021], a Clinton-appointed federal judge granted an emergency injunction preventing the state of New York from enforcing a Covid-19 vaccine mandate for its healthcare workers.  Former Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the healthcare worker vaccine mandate on August 16 prompting more than a dozen healthcare professionals to request a court enjoinder.  The mandate requires hospitals staff and employees of long-term care facilities to be vaccinated in order to remain employed.  The suit argues that medical professionals, including doctors, nurses, and medical technicians face losing their careers and livelihoods if they refuse to receive a vaccine that contradicts their religious beliefs.  According to the suit, the religious beliefs of the 17 medical professionals compel them to "refuse vaccination with the available Covid-19 vaccines, all of which employ aborted fetus cell lines in their testing, development, or production."

Texas county challenges DHS with ban on transporting migrants who lack negative COVID-19 test.  A Texas county declared a state of disaster Monday over illegal immigrants and COVID-19 exposure and adopted a policy barring them from being transported into or through the jurisdiction until they've gotten a new test showing they're free of the coronavirus.  Kinney County, which includes a sliver of the Mexican border along the Rio Grande, but serves as a key transit route for migrants being taken to San Antonio, said it has determined unvaccinated and untested illegal immigrants are a real threat to public health.  The county said it doesn't have the facilities to handle a major outbreak.  Under the policy, law enforcement officers are ordered to stop and inspect vehicles believed to be carrying illegal immigrants.  Any occupant who cannot show a negative COVID-19 test form within the last 72 hours will be ushered back outside the county's borders.

Because They Are Evil.  The only way to explain what is coming from the placeholder at the White House and the Deep State elites is that they are just evil.  They are doing what they're doing because they are evil.  No other answer makes sense.
  •   Why would Biden declare a federal vaccine mandate for every American even though two previous Supreme Court decisions says his federal vaccine mandate is unconstitutional? [...]
  •   Why would Biden declare that all Americans must be vaccinated but illegal immigrants crossing our border illegally do not have to be vaccinated? [...]
  •   Why would the Biden administration demand that all Americans be vaccinated, regardless of whether they have already acquired natural immunity since they have already had COVID? [...]
  •   Why would the Biden administration declare a national vaccine mandate for all Americans, but exempt all of Congress, all the congressional aides, the postal service, the federal justice system, and the Supreme Court? [...]
  •   Why does Fauci continue to demand vaccinations for all, even including all K-12 students, when he knows the individuals that have had COVID are better naturally immunized than if they "take the jab"? [...]
  •   Why would Biden, the CDC, Fauci, and the Deep State be more angry at American citizens who refuse to take the experimental vaccine rather than focus their anger and retribution on China; the country that actually gave us COVID?

Why Did the Staff at the Met Wear Masks, While the Celebrities Went Without?  The photographs from last night's event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City show a host of celebrities — including New York Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Carolyn Maloney — enjoying themselves without masks while the staff that are waiting on them are all masked up.  Why?  Guests at the event were obliged to be vaccinated.  But so, per New York City rules, were the staff. [...] Why, then, did the staff have to wear masks while the celebrities did not?  It can't be because, unlike the celebrities, the staff were unvaccinated.  And it can't be because, even though everyone was vaccinated, there's still a risk of transmission and infection, because that risk would apply equally to the celebrities as it would to the staff.  Is the science different for famous people, perhaps?

Dems' worst nightmare:  BLM and MAGA activists jointly demonstrate against vax mandates.  According to a Twitter feed from Leeroy Johnson, a group of MAGA and BLM activists joined together to demonstrate outside the Manhattan home of New York State Assembly member Linda Rosenthal, who is sponsoring a bill to make Covid vaccinations mandatory.  Johnson identified himself as an "independent photographer" and says that he takes no sides.  Here is his tweet with film of the smallish demonstrations, followed by MAGA and BLM activists identifying themselves and speaking of their joint effort:  [Tweet]  The suspicion many African Americans have toward the medical establishment has strong roots in the Tuskegee medical experiment atrocity in which African Americans were left untreated so that disease progress could be studied — in essence dehumanizing them and treating them as lab animals.

There's something vitally important missing from the Pfizer vax approval.  [Scroll down]  Today, dozens of online "review" websites cover everything from light bulbs to fishing lures to bottled water to healthcare providers — and everything in between.  While it's not necessary to start crowdsourcing reviews of pharmaceuticals for the general public, we do need external reviews by independent non-FDA clinical scientists to inform consumers about the medicines they receive, including vaccines.  Physicians and pharmacists should not be expected to blindly recommend and administer COVID vaccines to their patients without first personally reviewing and being comfortable with available efficacy and safety information.  They should not act simply because the White House instructs them to do so.

Don't freak out about hospitals filled with COVID patients.  One of the biggest stories in the media concerns hospitals filled to overflowing with COVID patients.  However, as an article in The Atlantic (of all places!) informs us, these numbers are misleading. [...] The biggest story is that of a 73-year-old Alabama man who purportedly died from a treatable heart attack after dozens of hospitals across a three-state region turned him away owing to the fact that their ICUs were overflowing with COVID patients.  I say purportedly out of caution because there's almost no confirming evidence other than the family's say-so. [...] [W]e also know that hospital staffers, especially nurses, are quitting in droves because they refuse to comply with their hospitals' "get vaccinated or get fired" mandates.  That means that the man could have been rejected from several hospitals not because the beds were full but because the staffing rosters were empty.

Pregnant Woman Is Forced To Vaccinate Before Giving Birth, Baby Is Born With Neurological Issues.  The aunt of the woman who gave birth to this baby with neurological issues wrote that the mother was forced to be vaccinated 8 months into her pregnancy or they would not allow her into the operating room to give her a cesarian.  The mother was asked to get vaccinated for months by the hospital but at the 8th month, they put the hammer down and required it or she would not get the proper care.  [Video clip]

Fully Vaccinated New Orleans Saints Staff Test Covid Positive.  The NFL has gone to great lengths — some players argue extreme lengths — to make life difficult for the unvaccinated.  And in making its case for being vaccinated the league has said the positive Covid-19 incidence rate among unvaccinated players is seven times greater than vaccinated. [...] Consider the New Orleans Saints.  Six coaches and a staff nutritionist tested positive for Covid-19 within the last 36 hours, OutKick.com has confirmed.  All of them (or 100 percent per most calculators) were fully vaccinated.  And the point here is not to celebrate that vaccinated people also test positive or get sick.  Never that.  The point is to question the league's narrative that unvaccinated people are a major problem and the root cause of outbreaks.  Because the Saints coaching staff has an outbreak and none are unvaccinated.

States Gear Up for Legal Fight Over Vaccine Mandate.  Nearly all Republican-led states have voiced opposition to the vaccine mandate announced by President Joe Biden last week.  Many of them have vowed to fight the mandate in court, but held back on voicing specific legal strategies as details of the Biden administration's policy remain unknown.  The mandate would require businesses with more than 100 employees to have staff either vaccinated against COVID-19 or be tested weekly for the disease.  It would be put in place through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), according to Biden.  Governors and attorneys general in at least 27 states, all Republicans, made comments in opposition to the mandate.  They all generally support vaccinations and some of them even support vaccine mandates in private businesses.  However, they largely oppose the notion that businesses should be forced to require vaccination, especially by the federal government.

NCAA Golfer Ends Up In The Hospital With Myocarditis Days After Second Jab, Goes After Biden Over Vax Tyranny.  John Stokes was a more than healthy student and Division I athlete from Tennessee State University.  That is, he was until his second shot of Pfizer.  "I got the second Covid shot Tuesday and within four days I had been diagnosed with myocarditis," he said.  "And I was told I probably won't be able to play my senior season now."  [Video clip]

A Nurse Records Hospital Officials Attempting to Eject Her After She Refused to Take the Vaccine.  Wow.  Nurses moved from "heroes" to "villains" so rapidly because they refused to take the vaccine.  Instead of honoring these ladies and men for their sacrifices, Joe Biden is condemning them, liberals are suddenly hating them, and hospitals are physically evicting them.

Australian Media Outlet Discovers Those In Hospital With COVID In News Report Are Crisis Actors.  Media Watch, a TV program on ABC Australia uncovered a scandal across several news reports featuring reportedly 'sick' patients with COVID in the hospitals.  Turns out, they are all crisis actors!  Paul Barry reported on Ramona, one of 700 COVID patients hospitalised in Australia at the end of last month.  Who, along with two others in Sydney's Concord Hospital, was keen to warn people of the dangers of COVID by sharing heartbreaking stories about the illness from their hospital beds: [...] Footage of those patients, identified only by their first names, was recorded by Dr Lucy Morgan and released by New South Wales Health.  And it made it onto all the major networks including ABC News, Ten News First and Seven News.  [Video clip]

The Editor says...
[#1] There are several clues in the video clips of these purported Covid patients:  They're all young, attractive, clean, and articulate.  They look like soap opera actors.  Actual hospital patients who are seriously ill don't look so good.  They're usually tired, wrinkled and pale, they have weak, raspy voices, haven't had a shower in several days, and they're hooked up to a bunch of wires and hoses.  [#2] If multiple news outlets used this footage without questioning its authenticity, they're either incompetent dupes, or they're complicit in this government propaganda campaign.

I will never trust another doctor.  In private conversations with people they trust, American citizens are heaping contempt on doctors for forcing a narrative on us that had no basis in science.  Many of us, perhaps even the majority, immediately recognized this virus for what it is — a common flu virus maybe engineered to be more contagious if not more fatal but hardly differing substantially from other influenza strains.  We have lived with seasonal flu all our lives.  We saw no reason to fear it until the medical community, and Anthony Fauci specifically, started telling lies.  And once the lies started, they never stopped. [...] How do doctors and nurses reclaim the trust of patients?  Is that even possible now?  Because in the cold light of day it looks like they were either stupid or malevolent.  Given that they're supposed to be educated people, malevolent appears to be the more likely.  And that is terrifying, when you consider they now want to inject every last one of us with an unproven substance that may be causing more illness than the virus itself and they are willing to destroy our lives and job to make that happen.  Was this the goal all along?

They Want You to Hate Each Other.  Everything Joe Biden and his team are doing right now depends on the American people despising one another. [...] All they can do is distract from failure with oppression, hoping as they do that oppression will find grateful welcome among those whom they are not currently characterizing as subhuman undesirables.  And so they need us to hate each other.  This was the gamble Biden made with his venomous speech last Thursday [9/9/2021], when he announced his intention to conscript business owners and make them bully hesitant workers into being vaccinated against COVID-19.  This obscene decree was accompanied by a harangue against "the unvaccinated."  "We've been patient, but our patience is wearing thin," the President spat at tens of millions of American citizens, as if he were their governess and not their employee.  "We're going to protect vaccinated workers from unvaccinated co-workers."  Never mind that this statement is practically an advertisement against the effectiveness of the vaccine.  It is above all an invitation to pure spite.

The Red Cross Announces The Vaccinated Can't Give Blood Because Their Blood Have Been Stripped Of Antibodies.  [Transcript:]  "COVID-19 vaccine, you're going to want to listen to this.  The Red Cross says anyone who has received their COVID-19 vaccine cannot donate convalescent plasma to help other COVID-19 patients in hospitals.  That plasma is made up of antibodies from people who have recovered from the virus but the vaccine wipes out those antibodies making the convalescent plasma ineffective and treating other COVID-19 patients."  [Video clip]

Hot Mic Catches Israeli Health Ministry Saying Passports Have No Basis in Science, It's Just Intimidation To Get Vaccinated.  [Tweet with video clip.]

Whirlpool will pay workers $1,000 to get vaccinated.  Whirlpool is offering to pay workers $1,000 to get vaccinated against Covid-19.  The new vaccine incentive, confirmed by Whirlpool to CNN, underscores how Corporate America is trying to win over vaccine-hesitant workers.  The vaccine bonus comes as the Biden administration prepares an emergency rule that will require large companies, like Whirlpool, to ensure their entire workforce is vaccinated or subject unvaccinated staff to weekly testing.  Biden officials say companies that don't comply could face fines of up to $14,000 per violation.

The Editor says...
If the disease is extraordinarily bad, as the government claims, and the "vaccine" is really good (ditto), why is it necessary to offer substantial monetary incentives?

Lara Logan:  Biden Regime Ordered OSHA 'To Start Hiding Information From the Public to Promote the COVID Vaccine'.  How can you tell when there's a conspiracy afoot?  Government agencies start making changes to long-standing common sense protocols in order to promote a narrative or push an agenda.  Such is the case of the Biden regime's handling adverse reaction reports pertaining to the so-called Covid-19 "vaccines."  [Video clip]

Gov: 'I had no idea anyone alive could wreck this country as fast as Joe Biden is'.  One of the governors who has confirmed plans to fight President Biden's nationwide COVID-19 shots mandate — an order that apparently covers some 80 million people — also delivered a devastating assessment of the Democrat in the Oval Office.  "I had no idea anyone alive could wreck this country as fast as Joe Biden is," said Kristi Noem, the governor of South Dakota.  Her comments came as she discussed the plans she and others have to challenge Biden's mandate that employers with more than 100 workers require all of them to take the experimental COVID-19 vaccines.  The Biden order comes as there are new variants to COVID-19 being detected, and in some locations the infection rates are surging again.

Michigan Hospital System Says Workers With COVID-19 Natural Immunity Don't Need Vaccine.  Workers at Michigan-based Spectrum Health can avoid the company's COVID-19 vaccine mandate if they can prove they have natural immunity to the virus.  "While we still recommend vaccination for people with prior COVID-19 infection, according to this new research, there is increasing evidence that natural infection affords protection from COVID-19 reinfection and severe symptoms for a period of time," Spectrum said in a statement, according to local media.  "Current studies are not clear on how long natural immunity protects from reinfection."  Under the hospital policy, workers will have to submit to an antibody test to prove they're immune.  Natural immunity, meaning that a person has contracted COVID-19 and recovered, is rarely discussed in national conversations about vaccines, although some studies have shown that individuals who were previously infected have displayed significant resistance to the virus.

Natural Immunity [is] Longer Lasting Than Protection From COVID-19 Vaccines:  Dr. Robert Malone.  The immunity conferred by recovering from COVID-19 is better than the protection afforded by COVID-19 vaccines, a prominent vaccine inventor says, citing in part a recent study from Israel.  Israeli researchers found that people in the country vaccinated with Pfizer's COVID-19 shot were 13 times more likely to contract the Delta variant of the CCP virus and 27 times more at risk of symptomatic disease, compared to those who had recovered from COVID-19.  "It's now been shown in that paper and others that the breadth of that immune response in terms of T and B cell memory populations is more diverse and more long-lasting than the breadth of immune response elicited by the spike-based vaccines alone," Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of the class of vaccines based on messenger RNA, said on Epoch TV's "American Thought Leaders" program.

San Diego Could Lose Half Their Police Force From Vaccine Mandate, 45 Percent Are Willing to Be Fired.  A rather remarkable situation in San Diego that we could see play out in the rest of the nation.  The police union, The San Diego Police Officers Association (SDPOA), asked their members about the vaccination mandate.  65 percent of the respondents said they would consider quitting the force if the city were to impose a requirement.  However, an alarming 45 percent said they would rather be fired than comply with the mandate.  The SDPOA has 1,971 members.  According to the San Diego Union Tribune, half of those officers are not vaccinated.  If that half of the entire police department were to be fired for non-compliance with the vaccine mandate, the city of San Diego would be in a really sketchy place.  The city has a deadline for compliance on November 2nd.

Soaring through the roof:  Vaccine deaths skyrocket.  The U.S. government database that keeps track of deaths from vaccine side effects has exploded by 10-fold since the advent of COVID-19, and the experimental vaccines that have been developed in response.  The Beltway Report revealed there are about 1,400 deaths reported to the system each year, among the thousands of reports of adverse events from vaccines.  The report explained the Virus Adverse Event Report System gets more than 60,000 reports each year, including 1,400 deaths that are documented on average.  But since COVID was unleashed on the world, "there have been 14,701 deaths reported," the report said.

Members of Congress [are] exempt from Biden's vaccine mandate, [but] average Americans [are] expected to comply.  There is one sure way to get around President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate:  Be part of either the legislative or judicial branches of the federal government.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said the mandate does not apply to members of the House, according to Newsweek.  "She's saying she cannot force Members to be vaccinated, which is true," a statement from Pelosi's office said.  The New York Times reported that the vaccine edict issued by Biden does not apply to the federal court system either.  The vaccine mandate has triggered howls of protest.  Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis of New York said Biden exceeded his executive authority with the mandate, which relies upon a liberal interpretation of the rule-making powers of the Department of Labor.

The Jab May Have Some Really Concerning Side Effects For Our Young Men.  FDA approved?  They rushed this vaccine, and now everyone is beginning to see the disastrous effects of forcing and coercing people into taking experimental medicine.  Pfizer has been sued more times than anyone can count, and they currently hold the record for the biggest criminal fine in history for medical fraud.  Concerning data continues to pour in, and according to a recent study, teenage boys are more likely to suffer from heart inflammation due to taking the C-19 vaccine than had they simply contracted Covid-19.

CDC Director:  Agencies Urgently Working on COVID-19 Vaccine for Younger Children.  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky says the federal health agency is working quickly on a COVID-19 vaccine for younger children between the ages of 5 and 11.  "We're waiting for the companies to submit the data to the FDA, we're anticipating that will happen in the fall," she told the "Today Show" on Sept. 13.  "We will look at that data from the FDA, from the CDC, with the urgency that we all feel for getting our kids vaccinated and we're hoping by the end of the year."  Her comments contrast with health advisory panels in several other countries, including the United Kingdom, that haven't recommended COVID-19 shots for children aged 5 to 11.  In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted emergency authorization to vaccinate children aged 12 to 17.

Another Study Shows Hospitalization Numbers of COVID Patients in U.S. are Overinflated.  Interesting data on SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) being released and discussed today [9/13/2021].  The first is the release of a study indicating that half of all recorded hospitalization cases for COVID-19 are incorrectly being interpreted.  The study of 50,000 VA patients recorded as hospitalized and testing positive for COVID-19, reflects that roughly half of the patients recorded on the dashboard were admitted to the hospital for some other, unrelated, reason and incidentally tested positive for the virus upon admission.  They arrived for treatment for something else, were tested and recorded for COVID, but the treatment was not for any COVID-19 related issue.  An earlier study in May, using the charts of hospitalized pediatric patients found roughly the same thing; 40 to 45 percent of the patients recorded as COVID hospitalizations, when in reality they were in the hospital for something unrelated to COVID.

My university forced students to get vaccinated, then moved some classes online.  After a year of online learning, I, like many other students, thought there would finally be a full return to in-person learning.  My university, DePaul, told students that everyone would have to be vaccinated to attend in-person classes.  Though I chose to take the vaccine before the mandate, many of my peers followed what the university said, despite any misgivings they might have had about getting vaccinated.  People who have chosen not to get vaccinated were warned they could lose financial aid and would be dropped from classes.  But even people who did take the vaccine are finding their classes moved online — and the return to normal seems still so far away.  This despite the low rate of COVID infections in the past month — the highest number of weekly infections of students is 18 cases.

This is last week's news, but maybe the article is informative.
Elizabeth Warren asks Amazon to suppress books with COVID-19 'misinformation'.  Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., sent a letter to Amazon CEO Andy Jassy demanding that Amazon use its algorithm to throttle the sale of books she characterized as spreading "COVID-19 misinformation."  After pulling up search results on Amazon for various COVID-19 and vaccine-related terms, Warren's team claimed many of the books that came up were "based on falsehoods about COVID-19 vaccines and cures, including those written by the most prominent spreaders of misinformation."  "This pattern and practice of misbehavior suggests that Amazon is either unwilling or unable to modify its business practices to prevent the spread of falsehoods or the sale of inappropriate products — an unethical, unacceptable, and potentially unlawful course of action from one of the nation's largest retailers," Warren wrote in the letter.  "At a time when every step towards ending the pandemic could save countless lives, misinformation poses a substantial obstacle."

In Australia, vaccines are not necessarily about your health.  COVID-19 is here to stay.  That being the case, it would make sense to focus on treatment options as well as on vaccines.  However, treatment options do not empower governments, and repurposing old drugs do not enrich pharmaceutical companies.  Perhaps that's why the Australian [federal] government has banned doctors from prescribing Ivermectin, which appears to be a useful treatment when given early enough to someone with COVID. [...] Why is Ivermectin being demonized when it's long been deemed a miracle drug that's safe for certain conditions?  Indeed, the CDC itself insists that immigrants with parasites must take to keep those parasites out of the American population.  Australia, the various state and national governments of which have gone full fascist in response to COVID, may just have given the game away.  Its Health Department has now banned physicians from prescribing Ivermectin for anything other than parasites.  The basis for the ban isn't that the drug is inherently dangerous, although the Australian health department notes people are taking doses that are too large.  Instead, Australia's Health Department is worried that, if people can get treated fairly painlessly for COVID and then end up with natural immunity, the vaccine will seem unnecessary.  We can't have that.

Joe Biden's mandate has nothing to do with actual vaccines.  In his recent speech on his six-step COVID plan, Joe Biden spoke like a dictator, not like a supposedly elected president.  What should be our response?  First, let us examine the facts before us with respect to COVID-19 and the vaccines.  Can we eliminate SARS-CoV-2?  No vaccine has ever stopped a coronavirus, despite various efforts to do so over the past several decades, and this one will not be stopped, either.  Several coronaviruses are endemic in the human population, and it is virtually certain that SARS-CoV-2 has now joined that number. [...] What about the vaccines?  What should we call an immunization that does not make anyone immune?  The so-called vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission, and it is increasingly becoming obvious that they do not completely prevent hospitalization or death.  An injection that does not prevent infection but only limits the severity of symptoms is a treatment, not a vaccine, and it is now known that this type of treatment has, at best, only a temporary effect measured in months. [...] A person without symptoms is not sick.  Imposing restrictions and mandates on asymptomatic persons who are healthy, rather than limiting them to sick or immunocompromised people, stands the entire field of medicine on its head. [...] What are the long-term effects of the vaccines?  There has been no study of long-term effects because there has not been a long term yet.

If your employer demands you vaccinate, don't quit.  There is a news report that the Lewis County General Hospital in upstate New York will stop delivering babies after September 24.  This is because too many maternity unit workers have resigned over the COVID vaccination mandate.  The hospital's chief executive officer, Gerald Cayer, said 165 hospital employees have yet to be vaccinated and that they make 27% of the hospital's total work force.  Stories like this are (or will be) repeated all across the country.  And it will not just be hospitals that will be [affected].  Any company ordering vaccination faces a similar labor problem.  As it is, many businesses are having trouble finding workers.  Resistance to the vaccine mandates will make this worse.  Parts of the economy could grind to a halt, proving that there is power in just saying "no."  If I were in a situation where my employer demanded I be vaccinated, I would not quit or resign.  Instead, I would make my employer go through the effort of firing me.  I'm not a lawyer, but I feel that this might provide a legal advantage down the road.

No sports, no clubs, no talking during lunch and other joys of COVID schooling.  Monday [9/13/2021] is the first day of school in Gotham's public system.  And it's on track to be the third needlessly disrupted academic year for kids.  Parents, delighted that schools are reopening despite the best efforts of the teachers union, are largely quiescent about the absurd restrictions placed on kids.  They whisper to each other about how it all makes little sense.  My daughter's Manhattan middle school won't be using lockers this year.  My sons' Brooklyn elementary school has let us know that water fountains will remain closed.  No group projects, no field trips, no parties.  Outdoor recess will be masked and distanced.  Forget tag or sports.  We used to understand that it is important for kids to get exercise with friends.  But we have forgotten everything we have ever known about child development in the name of fighting a virus that poses a minuscule risk to children.

COVID Data, Facts Not Fear.  Twitter user Jason Bailey has done a deep dive into the latest CDC data on SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).  There is obviously a lot of noise amid the competing COVID narratives, as politicians and media are intent on weaponizing the fear for maximum political value.  Baily provides the links and just looks at the raw data.  We know that much of the raw data underlying the CDC statistics are inflated by the way the data is collected and manipulated by the hospitals and healthcare system.  However, that said, if we just accept the raw CDC data and evaluate what they are collecting as a way to estimate the risks[,] here's the outcome. [...]
  •   TOTAL DEATHS account for 1.6% of total cases.
  •   78.1% of TOTAL DEATHS are over the age of 65.
  •   94.7% of TOTAL DEATHS are over the age of 50.
  •   6% of TOTAL DEATHS are attributed to Covid only.
  •   94% of TOTAL DEATHS have an average of 2.9 co-morbidities (12/6/20).
Why is COVID-19 being disproportionately hyped as such a dangerous threat, when the reality of the statistical danger is much less than the intense level of hype?

Healthy mother-of-two, 35, dies after AstraZeneca vaccine caused blood clots on her brain.  A healthy mother-of-two died from blood clots on her brain caused by the AstraZeneca vaccine, a coroner has ruled.  Alpa Tailor, 35, fell ill just over a week after getting her first dose of the coronavirus jab in March.  St Pancras Coroner's Court heard that Ms Tailor was complaining of a headache before she suffered stroke-like symptoms including including slurred speech and a facial droop.

New Zealand:  Jacinda Ardern extends strict lockdown for Auckland for at least another week.  New Zealand prime minister announced that Auckland will remain under a strict lockdown for at least another week to curb the spread of highly infectious Delta variant of coronavirus.  Jacinda Ardern told reporters on Monday [9/13/2021] that the country's largest city, Auckland, will remain in strict alert 4 level lockdown until 21 September.  The Prime Minister said that after that, the city will move to alert level 3, which means that the curbs will be eased slightly but offices, schools and public venues would still stay shut.

Kamala Harris questioned after announcing steps for 'protecting the vaccinated': 'Doesn't the vax do that?'  Vice President Kamala Harris raised eyebrows on Sunday with her tweet urging Americans to help protect already vaccinated people in order to end the COVID-19 pandemic.  "By vaccinating the unvaccinated, increasing our testing and masking, and protecting the vaccinated, we can end this pandemic.  That's exactly what we are committed to doing," Harris tweeted.  There has been widespread confusion over vaccine rhetoric from the Biden administration, as a push to protect the vaccinated has become a common talking point, despite the vaccines already providing strong protection for those who've gotten them.

After Biden announcement, Fauci predicts 'many, many' more vaccine mandates to compel enough Americans to get COVID-19 shots.  "Many, many more mandates" will come on top of the Biden administrations' new vaccine restrictions, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday [9/12/2021].  Fauci predicted that colleges, universities, and businesses are likely to start imposing vaccine mandates, he told CNN's Jen Christensen at a panel organized by NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists on Sunday.  "And I believe that's going to turn this around because I don't think people are going to want to not go to work, or not go to college, or not go to university," he said.  However, he said he did not expect more "centrally-derived mandates" to be on the way, like the policy from President Joe Biden last week.  Under his new policy, all federal workers must be vaccinated, and companies employing more than 100 people must either require vaccination or carry out regular tests.

Major consumer lobby has questions on Biden's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  A trade group that represents the $2 trillion packaged goods industry says businesses have critical questions about President Biden's COVID-19 vaccine mandate and need answers within hours, not weeks.  The Consumer Brands Association, whose members include companies such as Coca-Cola, General Mills and Kellogg, sent a letter to the White House demanding immediate details on Mr. Biden's executive order issued last week, which requires companies with 100 or more employees to mandate the vaccine or impose weekly testing.  "Federal agencies must move quickly, anticipate challenges, promptly answer questions, and partner with the private sector if we are to realize successful implementation of the administration's COVID-19 action plan and achieve our shared goal of increased vaccination rates," wrote Geoff Freeman, Consumer Brands president, and CEO.

UK to Repeal Emergency Powers Allowing Government to Shut Down Country.  Emergency CCP virus powers allowing the UK government to shut down swathes of England's economy are set to be repealed, the government said on Sept. 12.  The announcement comes as the controversial plan to introduce domestic vaccine passports in England was dropped on the same day.  In a statement published on Sept. 12, the government said Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to repeal in the near future some of the emergency powers enacted in England by the Coronavirus Act 2020.  The powers that are "no longer necessary" include powers to close down sectors of the economy, apply restrictions on events and gatherings, disrupt education and child care, extend time limits for urgent warrants, or detain infectious people.

The Supreme Court Needs To Stop Unelected Bureaucrats From Making Up Laws.  A new Supreme Court brings new hope to reeling in unchecked federal power.  For the last few decades, the Supreme Court has allowed Congress to delegate unchecked power to unelected agency officials, who are mainly part of the executive branch.  The executive branch has thus legislated through unelected officials and latched onto powers not granted to them via the Constitution.  The most recent example is President Joe Biden's mandate that large employers require their workers to be vaccinated or test for the virus weekly.  The executive branch plays a far more significant role in our everyday lives than the Founding Fathers intended.  Article 1, Section 1 of the Constitution prescribes that all legislative power lies with Congress.  Why then, has the executive played such a significant role in creating law in recent history?  For example, Biden announced he will look into having the Department of Education, an executive agency, mandate masks for all school children, despite kids facing almost zero risk from Covid-19.

I've Been Suspended by YouTube.  Last night, as I have been doing for months, I did an episode of "my" internet show, "The World According to Ben Stein."  It's a panel show lasting about an hour.  The producer is my pal, Judah Friedman.  None of us gets paid a dime.  We talk about politics and economics and sometimes about internet dating (although I am happily married and don't do internet dating).  It's a very small little enterprise, and we are all skeptical about everything. [...] The phone rang.  It was Judah Friedman to tell me that he had just been notified by "YouTube" that they would not be showing the "show" we did last night and further that we were banned from YouTube for a week.  Our crime?  That we had questioned the Covid vaccine and gone against the prevailing wisdom of the experts on Covid in our area and nationally.  That was enough to get us banned on YouTube for a week.  Now, observe what has happened.  YouTube is such an immense communications entity that to be banned from it is to banned from national mass communication.  Yes, it's not part of the government, so the First Amendment does not strictly apply to it.  BUT, it is so big that it approximates the government.  And to be banned from it is to be banned from national debate on important issues.

The Disposable Children of the Pandemic.  The rhetoric about and treatment of children over the past 18 months has flung open a window into the soul of America's ruling class.  As Nelson Mandela warned us, "There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way it treats its children."  To those constructing the new health tyranny, children post no threat and can be treated as things, not people. [...] One of the first things learned about the Chinese Coronavirus in the spring of 2020 was that the younger population was at extremely low risk of either being hospitalized or succumbing to the virus. [...] Yet, the ruling elites, manipulating the populace by striking unfounded fear throughout all of society, demanded that schools shut down and children be masked and forced to stay indoors.  Thus we, as a society, deprived the youngest citizens — who constitute nearly one third of the U.S. population — of educational, emotional, and social development.

Medical Mandates:  A Hideous Strength.  One recalls C.S. Lewis' dystopian novel That Hideous Strength, a longtime favorite of mine, where he speaks of "false writings" and "men maddened with false promises and soured with true miseries." [...] [C. S. Lewis] would not have been surprised at the current pandemic of lies, political demagoguery, and the recruitment of a public devoid of the moral strength to resist an orthodoxy of deception — the sway of the sons and daughters of the Father of Lies.  For COVID has provided the pretext to inaugurate precisely such a declension as Lewis feared.  Our public institutions are engaged in establishing a virtual medical dictatorship mandating masks, lockdowns, contact tracing, curfews, business closures, excessive police powers, and more.  And now we have the vaccine passports, predicated on a quasi-theological division between the saved and the damned, or in current terms, the vaccinated and the unvaccinated.

Pfizer executive says Israel is a 'kind of laboratory' for Covid vaccines.  An official at pharmaceutical giant Pfizer claimed that Israel was a "kind of laboratory" for the Covid-19 vaccine that his company developed, during a conference on Zoom last week.  His words were then echoed by vaccine skeptics, rejected by Israeli health officials, and later clarified by the pharmaceutical company.

Meanwhile, In Dystopian Bondi Beach In Australia...  If you think as an Australian you will be able to enjoy a weekend at Bondi Beach, you've got another thing coming.  Here comes the COVID Gestapo to make sure you are wearing your masks in the hot sun and while swimming because there is nothing more liberating at the beach than a muzzle to choke you to death in the ocean.  [Video clip]

Was COVID Tyranny Scripted And Pre-Planned By The Rockefeller Foundation In 2010?  "Lockstep" Written 10 years ago chronicles how to bring the world down with a pandemic[.]  This report was produced by The Rockefeller Foundation.  This report was produced by The Rockefeller Foundation and Global Business Network in May 2010.  From the report:  ["]China's government was not the only one that took extreme measures to protect its citizens from risk and exposure.  During the pandemic, national leaders around the world flexed their authority and imposed airtight rules and restrictions, from the mandatory wearing of face masks to body-temperature checks at the entries to communal spaces like train stations and supermarkets.  Even after the pandemic faded, this more authoritarian control and oversight of citizens and their activities stuck and even intensified.  In order to protect themselves from the spread of increasingly global problems — from pandemics and transnational terrorism to environmental crises and rising poverty — leaders around the world took a firmer grip on power.["]  [Video clip]

The Streets Of France Turn Into Warzones As Hundreds Of Thousands Clash Over Vaccine Passports.  There have been ugly scenes in one French city as those protesting a vaccine passport mandate clashed with masked people.  More than 120,000 people demonstrated across France on Saturday, according to official figures, to protest the coronavirus health passes they say discriminate against the unvaccinated.  Footage posted to Twitter by @HZ_Press shows those marching in the southern French city of Toulouse clashing with people wearing masks.  The video, which has been viewed more than 3.4 million times, shows people physically attacking each other with long sticks, with things becoming so chaotic that crowds scatter.  [Video clip]

Biden doesn't require migrants at border to get vaccinated despite mandate on Americans.  The Biden administration is not planning to vaccinate the nearly 200,000 migrants who are showing up on the border each month, despite imposing mandates on federal workers and private businesses nationwide.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed during a press briefing Friday that many employees would be required to get the coronavirus vaccine but that people in federal custody at the U.S.-Mexico border would not be required, nor be able, to get it. [...] Although there have been reports that the Biden administration is preparing to offer coronavirus vaccines to migrants in custody at the border, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the federal agency that oversees Border Patrol operations, does not have plans to vaccinate migrants in its custody, two people familiar with the situation told the Washington Examiner.

From 'trust the science' to 'trust the tyrants'.  President Joe Biden announced a national vaccine mandate Thursday that will affect approximately 100 million workers.  It will require all federal workers and contractors to get vaccinated.  It will also necessitate large companies to require their employees either to participate in weekly testing or else be vaccinated.  "My job as president is to protect all Americans," Biden said.  "So, tonight, I'm announcing that the Department of Labor is developing an emergency rule to require all employers with 100 or more employees that together employ over 80 million workers to ensure their workforces are fully vaccinated or show a negative test at least once a week."  In other words, we've gone from "trust the science" to "trust the tyrants."  For the duration of the pandemic, most Democrats have used the phrase "trust the science."  So, it is odd that Biden should order a national vaccine mandate when Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said, "There will be no nationwide mandate."  Expert opinions on how to mitigate the spread come in behind the opinions of teachers union bosses and power-hungry politicians.

The Editor says...
If Joe Biden's "job as president is to protect all Americans," why is the Mexican border wide open?

New York City Teacher's Union Wins Battle Over COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate.  New York City's largest teacher's union has won a battle to keep teachers and other educators employed if they suffer from certain medical conditions and don't want to comply as a result with the Big Apple's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  An arbitrator ruled late Friday [9/10/2021] that teachers with certain documented medical afflictions must be offered assignments outside of classrooms and be kept on the city's payroll.  Other educators who don't want a COVID-19 vaccine must be offered unpaid leave that keeps in place their health coverage or a severance package.  City officials announced last month that all 148,000 Department of Education employees would have to get a COVID-19 vaccine, with limited exemptions.

England Drops Vaccine Passport Plan.  The plan to mandate CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccine passports for nightclubs and crowded events in England will not go ahead, UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid said on Sunday [9/12/2021].  It comes after British lawmakers across the political spectrum voiced strong opposition to the plans this week.  Speaking on the BBC's "The Andrew Marr Show" on Sunday, the health secretary said he "never liked the idea" of forcing people to show their papers in everyday activities, but the government was right to look at the evidence.  "What I can say is that we've looked at it properly and whilst we should keep it in reserve as a potential option, I'm pleased to say that we will not be going ahead with plans for vaccine passports," Javid said.

Medical Experimentation and Collective Punishment Are War Crimes.  Fake President but Real Dictator Joe Biden:  "We are going to protect the vaccinated workers from unvaccinated co-workers."  Ah, if only the "vaccinated" workers had as healthy immune systems as their unvaccinated colleagues.  Whatever the friendly U.S. government is injecting into people, it's certainly not inoculating against or inhibiting transmission of the Fauci Virus if the "vaccinated" must walk around in bubble-boy suits for the rest of their lives.  The "vaccine" that works so nice you have to take it twice... er, thrice... er, we'll let you know when you've had enough, prole! [...] Let's put aside whether, in their rush to "vaccinate" the world, medical bureaucrats have sufficiently "enlightened" patients as to all the health hazards that might be reasonably expected to come from an experimental treatment because the usual long-term studies that track potentially harmful side-effects of new treatments over the course of ten or more years were thrown out the window so governments could quickly jab their citizens without much scrutiny.  Long-term harm?  Only the future will tell.

When it comes to vaccine mandates, Biden is counting on OSHA.  On his first day as in the White House, Joe Biden signed an executive order giving OSHA broad power to regulate health and safety in the workplace, particularly regarding COVID-19.  At the time, it was thought that OSHA would enforce face coverings in the workplace.  On Thursday, President Biden announced that companies with more than 100 employees are required to make certain that all employees are vaccinated or have a weekly negative COVID test.  This broad power may indeed be unconstitutional, but OSHA is ideally suited to try to enforce the mandate.  Most people know that OSHA creates detailed rules governing workplaces.  These rules have been enforced using intrusively detailed onsite inspections.  A COVID vaccination rule under this model would be quite difficult to enforce in person.  However, the way OSHA enforces rules has changed.  OSHA now relies on detailed reports from employers rather than onsite inspections.

Hospital to stop delivering babies as maternity workers resign over vaccine mandate.  Lewis County General Hospital will stop delivering babies after September 24 because too many maternity unit workers have resigned over COVID vaccination mandates.  That's according to Lewis County Health System Chief Executive Officer Gerald Cayer, who held a news conference Friday in Lowville.  He said 6 employees in the maternity unit resigned rather than get a COVID shot and another 7 are undecided.

19 governors vow to fight Biden's vaccine mandate "to the gates of hell".  Joe Biden went full authoritarian about COVID-19 vaccine mandates Thursday when he announced a federal mandate imposed upon businesses with more than 100 employees.  There are some big union exceptions to the mandate — like postal workers — but for non-union workers across the country, if they don't get vaccinated, they can lose their job.  A lot of pieces of this new mandate are still missing, as Biden has a habit of announcing sweeping orders before all the details are written out on paper.  When that happens, likely in a couple of weeks, nineteen governors have promised to fight the mandate.

Texas hospital system bans ivermectin for COVID patients as their families demand 'wonder drug'.  Texas hospital system imposed "new restriction criteria" on the use of ivermectin, excluding the anti-parasitic agent from treatment of COVID-19.  St. Luke's Health will only allow its infectious disease physicians to use the drug for preventive treatment of strongyloidiasis, a roundworm infection, according to a Sept. 2 directive shared with Just the News.  Its wording suggests that non-infectious disease physicians had been considering or actually prescribing ivermectin for COVID patients.  The relatively cheap treatment has been promoted by an eclectic group of influencers.  Evolutionary biologist and former Evergreen State College professor Bret Weinstein has regularly touted ivermectin on his DarkHorse podcast, which led YouTube to demonetize his channel.

Head of Tokyo Medical Association recommends ivermectin for COVID treatment.  Dr. Haruo Ozaki, chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association recommends ivermectin for use with COVID patients.  He notes that the parts of Africa that use ivermectin to control parasites have a COVID death rate of just 2.2 per 100,000 population, as compared to 13 times that death rate among African countries that do not use ivermectin.  Similarly, worldometer.com statistics say that the COVID death rate in India (which uses HCQ and Ivermectin to treat COVID) is 32 while the COVID death rate in the U.S.A. is 6.5 times higher at 205 per 100,000 population.  If these stats are accurate, then at least 6 of every 7 people who have died in the U.S. of COVID could be alive today had they been treated with ivermectin.  Of course, ivermectin's effectiveness against COVID was not yet known when the first COVID wave hit the United States.  Also, U.S. health statistics are notoriously inaccurate.  Hospitals are given a financial incentive to identify almost everyone who dies with COVID as having died of COVID.

At least 13 gorillas test positive for COVID-19 at Atlanta zoo after 'becoming infected by vaccinated employee'.  Zoo Atlanta says at least 13 western lowland gorillas have tested positive for COVID-19, including their oldest male gorilla in captivity — a 60-year-old named Ozzie.  The zoo announced the disturbing news on Friday, saying employees noticed that the gorillas had been coughing, had runny noses and showed changes in appetite.  A veterinary lab at the University of Georgia returned positive tests for the respiratory illness.  Zoo Atlanta is now waiting on confirmation from the National Veterinary Services Lab in Ames, Iowa.

Lara Logan drops dynamite Fox News segment on Biden's sweeping vaccine mandates.  On Thursday, "President" Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. broke another of his promises by requiring vaccine mandates on most, but not all, American citizens.  The next day, Fox News aired a terrific seven-minute segment by Lara Logan titled "Mandate Nation," and it's really worth watching.  Ms. Logan began the show reporting on new directives to OSHA not to report on COVID vaccine side-effects.  She then segued into recent reports from the U.K. and Israel that report on serious problems with the vaccines.  One feature of the segment that conservatives will appreciate is the montages from other channels, like MSNBC and CNN.  Their "commentators" are so crazed that it's surreal.  These un-American fools actually think Biden "didn't go far enough."  The Biden Mandates are a civil rights issue, and they should appall lovers of freedom.  [Video clip]

Do Your Duty as an American and Do Not Comply.  We live in a time where politicians seem to believe that they are the ultimate authority in the United States and that with a wave of their hand and a scratch of their pen, they can enact unassailable dictates that you have to follow.  This is so far from the truth that you could fit a solar system between them.  There are many laws in the land, with different states containing different laws to follow.  But, the supreme laws are the ones enshrined in the Constitution.  If any laws are issued that conflict with this supreme law of the land, then those laws are invalid and do not have to be followed.  This isn't just the opinion of a freedom-loving American with a penchant for bucking authority, it's also the opinion of the Supreme Court.

Against Biden's Mandates.  We oppose President Biden's lawless and authoritarian new mandates announced yesterday.  We also denounce his divisive rhetoric toward unvaccinated Americans, his reckless antipathy for federalism, and his threats to usurp state governors.  Contra Mr. Biden, this is entirely about freedom and personal choice. [...] Legality aside, Biden's proposals are deeply immoral and unnecessary.  Covid risks do not justify the hysteria emboldened by the president's announcement.  After 2020 we know definitively that elderly and obese individuals are at greatest risk of death from covid, while younger and healthier people face no more (and often less) risk than with an ordinary flu.  Yet not only does Biden threaten to repeat the mistakes of 2020, he intends to intensify them.  Markets and civil society can address health concerns far better than any centralized system; at most, state and local governments should act according to local conditions. [...] No liberal society forces medical treatment on healthy citizens, nor monitors their movements or employment.  No sane society accedes to sweeping new policies (not laws) enacted without due process and imposed by a centralized state.  And no healthy society allows its political class to demonize whole swaths of the country while creating fear and division.

Ivermectin, 'Noble Lies,' and Whom Do We Trust?  The controversy around the use of ivermectin and, previously, hydroxychloroquine joins a long list of things where the left's pursuit of the "Noble Lie" is judged more important than honest debate.  This particular piece of dishonesty claims that vaccinations, masking, and social distancing alone will eradicate COVID-19, and all other "side hustles" like these inexpensive medications are mockable, "snake oil" obfuscations.  Whom we choose to align with in these debates is unjustifiably and destructively polarizing, especially when facts may not line up with the pursued plans of those we trust to lead.  Why we trust and how we justify lying come into question.  By now, most of us know that there are studies, many of them from our own CDC, that show the effectiveness of ivermectin when given early in the course of COVID-19.  There is real-life proof that countries like Japan have already had success with the medication.  The medicine is cheap and safe when used properly.  Like hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin is nevertheless demonized by the political left, its mainstream media, and the medical establishment, the last despite published studies by reputable investigators.

Biden's Vaccine Mandate:  Unconstitutional, Unscientific, Underhanded.  [Scroll down]  If we were in an H5N1 or Black Fungus pandemic where fatality rates were north of 60%, mandates would be not only understandable but welcomed.  The federal government would not have to twist arms, bribe, and force the population to get vaccinated if a vaccine were available.  More likely, there would be mayhem as people rush to get vaccinated.  But when the government has to use all its power, persuasion, profits, and punishments to push a vaccine, one has to ask, why?  How can a disease be so dangerous to the general public if it has an overall recovery rate, according to the CDC, of greater than 97-98% currently?  It's a stretch at best to legally there is a "great danger" to society, at least a natural one from the virus.  That there exists a great politically manufactured danger is another story.  "Yeah, but the vaccine has brought us to the 98% recovery point."  Not true, and here is where the mandate shows its ugly unscientific unevenness.  Even before the vaccine, the recovery rate during the early days of the pandemic in 2020 was between 97% and 99.5%.

Citizen Reporter Catches Angry Empty Hospital Workers Off Guard "Where Are the Patients?"  A citizen reporter caught hospital workers off guard after visiting a hospital in Virginia and finding it practically empty.  [Video clip]

COVID Rules and Regulations are the Means to The End, They are Not The End Itself.  The announcement by Joe Biden yesterday to force vaccinations amid the U.S. workforce was a case study in politics, and his mandate attempt will fail — period.  Be angry, be righteously angry.  Be resolute and determined.  This is the hill, but do not be fearful, they will fail. [...] They make rules that are never implemented within their own tribe; this fact makes them extremely vulnerable.  The announcement by the Obama Chicago Marxist group, through Joe Biden, will never succeed.  The U.S. Constitution does not provide the executive with the power they are attempting to exert; not even close.  Their arguments are weak, make no sense, are not framed in legal standing, and are easily dispatched in the courts.  The carve-outs themselves nullify most of their predictable arguments.  If the vaccine is required as a matter of urgent public health — under an emergency declaration — then why are any exemptions afforded, or groups exempted.

The Fourth Reich is Here: Austria Begins Restricting Only the Unvaccinated.  "We don't have any plans for restrictions of the vaccinated population but will implement protective measures for the unvaccinated population," Chancellor Sebastian Kurz told a press conference.  That means, if you refuse to take the shot the ruling class desperately needs to get into every human being on Earth, you are about to have your illusion of freedom shattered — that is if it hasn't already been.  With vaccination numbers stagnating at 60% and the constant propaganda to remind the public there's a scamdemic they wouldn't even know about if it weren't for the mainstream media who tell us there's a "rise in infection rates", Austria was forced to introduce more restrictive measures.  According to Euractive, the government will introduce a three-phase plan to avoid a new pandemic wave that would include tightening measures for the unvaccinated if the occupancy rate of intensive care units increases.  "We have to achieve the goal of keeping the occupancy rate of intensive care units low, avoid school closures and increase the vaccination quota," Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein stressed.  Austria's ruling class's new strategy does not include plans for a lockdown.  However, if a lockdown is issued, it will only apply to the unvaccinated, Kurz said.

Horrific Child Injuries From Experimental COVID-19 Injections Include Permanent Blindness & Deafness.  They're coming after your children.  There is no other way for me to put it.  These medical fascists will use every tool in their arsenal to inject your child with this experimental toxin.  Public schools will prey on children to inject them and will attempt to bypass parental consent.  Los Angeles already mandated the experimental jabs for children 12+.

A few inconvenient facts about Biden's vaccine mandate.  Others have already commented on the constitutional problems with Biden's remedy for the evil unvaxxed.  I want to talk about a few more practical issues.  First, too few people are paying attention to the fact that this draconian, indeed, fascist dictate is for a virus that, for people under 70, has a mortality rate that is less than 1%.  If a virus with a 10%, 20%, or higher mortality rate were sweeping through America, the panic factor might be different.  But again, we're talking about less than 1% for those under 70. [...] Second, this is not a vaccine.  If it were a vaccine, those who are vaccinated would be perfectly safe from those who are not vaccinated. [...] Likewise, if this were a vaccine, those who were vaccinated would not need masks, because they would not be either virus givers or receivers.  Third, Biden has exempted the millions of illegal aliens pouring into the country from the mandate, as well as members of Congress and their staff.  One can view this two ways:  Biden hates all these people and wants them to die from COVID.  Or, considering that <1% mortality rate, along with all the problems associated with the vaccine, Biden hates everyone else and wants all these latter people to risk death or other permanent health problems.

Of course!
Members of Congress and Their Staff Are Exempt From Biden's Vaccine Mandate.  President Joe Biden's new vaccine mandates for federal employees don't apply to members of Congress or those who work for Congress or the federal court system.  Biden issued two executive orders on Thursday requiring vaccination against COVID for federal workers and contractors who work for the federal government.  He also asked the Department of Labor to issue an emergency order requiring businesses with more than 100 employees to ensure their workers are vaccinated or tested on a weekly basis.  However, Biden's order on federal workers applies to employees of the executive branch.  The House of Representatives and the Senate belong to the separate legislative branch, and the courts to the judicial branch of the federal government.

Members of Congress, staff exempt from Biden COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  President Joe Biden's sweeping federal employee vaccine mandate announced this week does not apply to members of Congress, employees who work for Congress or the federal court system, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed on Thursday.  Through an Executive Order issued by Biden, all federal workers — including the White House, all federal agencies and all members of the armed services — must take the COVID-19 vaccine with no testing option to opt out.  However, the new rule does not apply to members of Congress, congressional employees or employees within the federal court system.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Responds to Unconstitutional Dictates From the Current Occupant of the White House.  At the conclusion of a ceremony commemorating 9-11 and U.S. service members, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took questions from the media.  One of the questions was about his reaction to Joe Biden's vaccine mandate for U.S. workers.  This is how Governor DeSantis responded.  [Video clip]

Vax mandates are a cruel stick to beat people with.  They will tear us apart.  Vaccine passport requirements have come to Gotham.  Restaurants have started asking patrons to see their vaccination cards along with IDs to dine inside.  Starting Sept. 13, restaurants, museums and certain other indoor venues not doing that will be fined.  Why?  It's part of a larger movement to control and punish those who dare to disobey COVID edicts.  We've known for some time that restaurants are not major COVID-19 spreaders.  You're not catching COVID standing near someone for a few minutes at the Guggenheim.  The main source of COVID transmission is close, prolonged contact.  In other words, if you're going to contract it, it will most likely be from your dining or museum companion, not a stranger nearby.  So why bar unvaccinated New Yorkers from participating in city life?  The idea is no longer mainly to persuade people to get vaccinated but to punish them for not following orders.  Authoritarianism is always done "for our own good," you see.

DeSantis Dismantles Biden's Dictatorial Vaccine Mandate.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was one of the governors who immediately came out after Joe Biden announced his unconstitutional vaccine mandate plans and said no, we will not comply, and we will stop your illegal actions, to Biden.  But DeSantis wasn't done with Biden yet.  He was asked at an event about Biden making an oblique reference to him during the announcement about his vaccine mandate plans.  DeSantis blasted Biden for taking unconstitutional actions threatening the jobs of the people in Florida, saying he was going to stand up for them and protect their jobs from Biden's federal overreach.  Additionally, DeSantis chastised Biden for wanting to do away with parents' rights and allowing school boards to force five-year-olds to wear masks all day long.  [Video clip]

Australia Bans Ivermectin.  If you suspect the extremely heavy-handed Australia/New Zealand COVID-19 mitigation efforts might be a beta-test for just how far a government can go to control the citizens therein, well, this latest development appears to be an affirmation in that direction.  The ruling authority in Australia has just banned doctors from prescribing Ivermectin.  The Advisory Committee for Medicines Scheduling and the Australian National COVID Clinical Evidence Taskforce, have determined that any effort to mitigate COVID-19 with therapeutics will likely diminish the goal of vaccinating the entire population.  Therefore Ivermectin, which has saved thousands of lives and is widely in use in multiple countries including India, is now official banned from use by Australian doctors.

Doctor And Hospital Staff Scheme On How To Inflate COVID Numbers And Scare Non-Vaxxed Into Thinking They Are Going To Die.  A leaked Zoom call by a doctor and staff at a North Carolina hospital showing the scheming behind the scenes to inflate COVID numbers and scare the unvaccinated has gone viral.  Novant Health New Hanover Regional Medical Center has issued a statement after a video of an internal discussion on how the hospital reports its COVID-19 patient count was leaked on social media.  [Video clip]

Massachusetts [is] Experiencing [a] Massive COVID Spike In [those who are] Fully Vaccinated:  Thousands Per Week, 162 Deaths.  More than 4,000 fully vaccinated people in Massachusetts tested positive for the coronavirus last week, a daily average of more than 600 people as breakthrough infections continue to rise each week amid the delta variant.  The rate of breakthrough infections week-over-week starting five weeks ago surged 64%, then the following week went up 20%, the next week jumped by 25%, the subsequent week increased by 20%, and in the last week climbed by 23%.  [Video clip]  Breakthrough cases in Massachusetts are making up about one-third of the state's overall cases.  People who are unvaccinated are at a higher risk for infection and a severe case.  Overall, 23,858 fully vaxxed people have tested positive for the virus, according to new data from the state Department of Public Health on Tuesday [9/7/2021].  [Video clip]

CCP Plant, Leana Wen, Tells CNN Those Without A Vax Should Not Be Allowed To Travel ANYWHERE, Freedom Is Not A Constitutional Right.  Dr. Leana Wen is power-tripping... wants all the Americans that have not received the shot to be under lockdown and have their movements restricted.  "There are privileges associated with being an American — that if you wish to have these privileges, you need to get vaccinated.  Travel, and having the right to travel in our state, it's not a Constitutional right as far as I know to board a plane.  If you want to travel, you better go get that Vaccine."  [Video clip]

CNN medical 'expert' falsely claims Americans don't have the right to freedom of movement.  CNN medical pundit Leana Wen said that the Biden administration's vaccine mandates did not go far enough.  When asked about the Biden administration's vaccine mandate, she said it should instead be a federal requirement.  Dr. Leana Wen says "privileges associated with being an American" should be held hostage to people getting vaccinated.  Wen said "if you wish to have these privileges, you need to get vaccinated, travel and having the right to travel inter state:  It's not a constitutional right as far as I'm — as far as I know."  "To board a plane," she said.  "And so saying that if you want to stay unvaccinated, that's your choice, but if you want to travel, you better go get that vaccine."  [Video clip]

Doctor Laments Treating Unvaccinated Patients, Thinks They Should Be Denied Care.  Another day, another doctor who thinks the Hippocratic oath is based on politics.  This terrible doctor laments about all the vaccinated patients in her hospital not having enough resources because unvaccinated patients are there as well needed the same treatments.  So if she is demanding everyone get vaccinated but her hospital has vaccinated patients already, doesn't it add up to the same situation in the end?  [Video clip]

26 out of the 27 Lancet scientists who trashed theory that Covid leaked from a Chinese lab have links to Wuhan researchers.  Of the 27 scientists who wrote a letter in The Lancet medical journal dismissing the possibility that Covid-19 originated from a Wuhan lab, 26 have links to its Chinese researchers, their colleagues or its benefactors, a new investigation has revealed.  On March 7 last year, the influential journal published the letter in which the 27 scientists said they 'strongly condemned conspiracy theories' surrounding the origins of the coronavirus pandemic that has impacted all corners of the world.  All debate into whether Covid-19 had man-made origins or leaked from the lab in Wuhan — the Chinese city that was ground-zero for the virus — was effectively shut down by the letter.

Fauci tells Biden to go Further: CDC chief says president's sweeping COVID-19 vaccine mandate is a 'MODERATE' plan.  Dr Anthony Fauci has said he would have supported more extreme measures to force Americans to be vaccinated against COVID-19 — describing President Joe Biden's plan as 'moderate'.  Biden on Thursday announced that all companies employing more than 100 people must insist on either proof of vaccination or regular COVID tests.  His policy was greeted with anger by many Republicans, who described it as heavy-handed and an infringement on their personal freedoms.

France bans unvaccinated American travelers.  France has become the latest European country — and the most significant tourism destination — to remove the United States from its safe travel list, following EU recommendations in the wake of a US Covid spike.  A French government decree issued on Thursday [9/9/2021] bumped the United States and Israel from the country's "green" list, down to "orange," effectively prohibiting nonessential travel to France for unvaccinated visitors.  Under France's rules, unvaccinated travelers from either country will still be allowed in provided they have an essential reason for travel, however they'll need a negative Covid-19 test before travel and must quarantine for seven days on arrival.

Pelosi in April: 'We Cannot Require Someone to Be Vaccinated, That's Just Not What We Can Do'.  Previous comments made by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made the rounds on social media Friday after Joe Biden's recently announced federal vaccine mandate, with footage showing the top Democrat saying "we cannot require someone to be vaccinated."

Masks are here to stay as long as libs need to shame their political enemies.  [Scroll down]  We're so politically tribalized that even our response to the pandemic says more about politics than about anything else.  That's especially true when it comes to masking.  In the early days, of course, it was the medical authorities who urged us not to wear masks.  Virus guru Dr. Anthony Fauci told Americans that masks only benefit health workers and wouldn't do much, if anything, to protect against casual transmission.  Pundits and "experts" mocked then-President Donald Trump, who said that masks might help.  How unscientific!  A piece of cloth?  Those pieces of cloth soon became mandatory, as the apparent scientific wisdom flipped overnight (Fauci admitted that his original statement about masks was false or, at least, overdrawn, and mostly motivated by a desire to conserve supplies for health workers.)  In very short order, anyone who expressed any doubt about the efficacy of masks in preventing the spread of the Chinese virus was mocked as anti-science and frequently censored for engaging in that neo-Orwellian crime of "spreading misinformation."

News Outlet Retracts Story Claiming Ivermectin Causes Male Infertility, Third Time Media Has Failed To Accurately Cover Drug.  Another media scare story about Ivermectin has fallen apart, marking the third time in about a week that the media has failed when it comes to this particular drug.  This is not to say that anyone should be rushing to take the human version of Ivermectin to treat COVID-19 — that's a decision between you and your doctor — but the way the media has covered this drug has been a disaster.  The latest failure comes from KTSM, which cited a 2011 study from Nigeria that was small and questionable to claim that Ivermectin causes infertility in 85% of men.  Less than a day after the original article was published, the outlet retracted the story and added an editor's note in its place: [...] This is the third time since last week that the media has published and push a false story about Ivermectin after some people said it could help treat COVID-19.  The efficacy of Ivermectin in regards to COVID-19 isn't clear, but Ivermectin is a drug that is prescribed to humans for various reasons.

'I Will Not Comply': Social Media Erupts Over Biden Vaccine Mandate Speech.  Social media erupted Thursday following President Joe Biden's announcement that he will be mandating vaccination, testing, and mask requirements for not just federal employees, but many private businesses, too.  "Companies with at least 100 employees must require their employees get vaccinated or submit to weekly COVID-19 tests under a new Biden administration plan to combat the coronavirus and encourage vaccination," The Daily Wire reported. [...] The backlash online was immediate.  Daily Wire co-founder and CEO Jeremy Boreing took to Twitter to say he would not comply with President Biden's dictates.  "The Daily Wire has well over 100 employees.  We will not enforce Joe Biden's unconstitutional and tyrannical vaccine mandate," Boreing wrote.  "We will use every tool at our disposal, including legal action, to resist this overreach.  More to come."

Biden's Vaccine Mandates Are Racist and Elitist.  The glee of the coastal elites in the corporate media following President Joe Biden's authoritarian vaccine mandates is palpable.  The residents of the bubble think they are making life difficult for Trump supporters.  Taking away the ability of their ideological enemies to earn a living filled them with smug satisfaction, judging by the commentary from MSNBC's Joy Reid and others.  They seem a little too invested in the narrative the network executives have been feeding them.  Since the beginning of the COVID-19 vaccine programs, it has been evident that minorities were getting vaccinated at lower rates.  While the geniuses in the media believe the mandates will put the screws to a bunch of ignorant rednecks in states like Florida, that is not necessarily the case.  African Americans have the lowest vaccination rates in New York City.

Teenage boys more at risk from vaccines than Covid.  Teenage boys are six times more likely to suffer from heart problems from the vaccine than be hospitalised from Covid-19, a major study has found[.]  Children who face the highest risk of a "cardiac adverse event" are boys aged between 12 and 15 following two doses of a vaccine, according to new research from the US.  The findings come as Professor Chris Whitty, England's chief medical officer, prepares to advise ministers on whether there is a wider benefit to society from vaccinating children.  Last week, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) delivered its long-awaited verdict, saying the "margin of benefit" of jabbing 12- to 15-year-olds was "considered too small" and citing the low risk to healthy children from the virus.

Postal workers will be subject to Biden vaccine mandate, contrary to initial confused reports.  Employees of the United States Postal Service will be required to get a COVID-19 vaccine or be tested under President Joe Biden's new vaccine initiative, contrary to confused early reporting after the administration rolled out the mandate Thursday evening.  The Washington Post initially reported that the Postal Service would not be covered by Biden's vaccine mandate, quoting an administration official who said employees would still be strongly encouraged to comply.

Florida Court Lifts Pause on Mask Mandate Ban, Ruling in Favor of DeSantis.  The First District Court of Appeals in Florida ended the pause on the state's school mask mandate ban in a decision on Friday [9/10/2021].  The measure is temporarily back in effect, and it is once again unlawful for Florida public schools to require students to wear masks in their facilities.  In the ruling, the court granted the State of Florida's request to reinstate the stay lifted by Judge John Cooper's Wednesday decision, which briefly permitted public schools to reimpose mask mandates, rejecting Florida governor Ron DeSantis's previous appeal.

Florida appeals court rules in favor of DeSantis, allowing his ban on mask mandates in schools to stand.  Florida's 1st District Court on Friday reinstated a stay on mask mandates in schools, blocking local school requirements for now, court documents show.  Lawyers for Gov. Ron DeSantis filed the emergency appeal after a judge ruled on Wednesday [9/8/2021] that the state must stop its enforcement of a mask ban.  The latest court ruling comes amid a showdown between the state and some local school districts that have insisted on requiring students to wear masks as Covid-19 infections surge.

The CDC Suddenly Changes the Definition of 'Vaccine' and 'Vaccination'.  Matt Margolis over at our sister site PJ Media has picked up on a very interesting change on the CDC website when it comes to the definitions for "vaccine" and "vaccination."  The timing of the change is very interesting. [...] They appear to be changing the definition to fit what we're being told about the COVID-19 vaccines — that they don't necessarily provide immunity but just "protection" from more serious illness.  Meanwhile, it fits with the push for more "booster" shots, to keep up the continued "protection." So they've changed the definition of vaccines so that it no longer means preventing the disease or producing immunity.  Whereas before it wouldn't necessarily meet their definition of a vaccine, now it meets the new definition.  We've seen the CDC have wrong (bigger) numbers for COVID deaths in Florida (what a coincidence).  We've seen them falsely claim that the Delta variant is as contagious as chicken pox.  Now we see them redefining words to better fit what they're pushing with the COVID "vaccine."

Candid questions about Covid.  [Scroll down]  Something is clearly wrong here!  We have a medical grade, FDA approved for human use drug, with an incredible safety record, dirt cheap, readily available, overwhelming data showing it works for both treatment and prophylaxis/prevention, and we know everything about side effects since it has been used billions of times on humans since the 1980s.  Reports from all over the world continue to show great success and we remain on almost complete media blackout, or when it is mentioned in media it is more of a smear campaign rather than anything close to resembling science and data.  WHY? [...] This is a much bigger issue than just the ongoing battle over Ivermectin, and I could also write a case for Hydroxychloroquine.  The bigger issue is that the ongoing narrative from governments, agencies, and mainstream media just does not make sense.  We all have personal decisions to make, and there are so many questions on Covid we all want answers for[.]

Biden's Sweeping Vaccination Mandates.  Joe Biden today [9/9/2021] announced sweeping new coronavirus vaccine mandates of the kind he and key administration officials have previously said they would not impose.  Biden will require that all federal employees be vaccinated, with no option for those who prefer to be regularly tested instead. [...] Much of the instant commentary I've seen about this decision views it as an attempt to deflect attention from the Afghanistan debacle.  That may be part of what's going on.  But the main reason for the policy is that the surge of the coronavirus constitutes a massive threat to Biden's presidency and to his political party.  Biden campaigned relentlessly on the pandemic.  He blamed Donald Trump for it, ridiculously, and pledged to end the pandemic.  He expected the vaccines that were about to become available (thanks in part to Trump) to do the trick, and he expected the end of the pandemic and the resulting economic surge to ensure his popularity.  It hasn't worked out that way, and voters are holding Biden responsible.  That's why he has reversed course on vaccine mandates.  It's an act of desperation.

OSHA suspends requirement for employers to report vaccine injuries.  In order to encourage U.S. workers to be vaccinated, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has suspended the legal requirement for employers to report work-related injuries as a result of vaccinations aimed at combating the CCP virus that causes COVID-19 disease.  This suspension of the law by OSHA does not change the fact that employers can be held liable under the workers' compensation laws or under the personal injury laws, according to the nonprofit group Liberty Counsel.  Earlier this month, the website of OSHA, an agency within the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), said that employers can be held liable if they require employees to receive COVID-19 injections as a condition of service and that employees then experience adverse reactions.

Breaking Down Medical 'Fact-Checking' Propaganda.  When reading any kind of supposed "fact-checking" report like this, I always go to the bottom of the article and read the last paragraph because it represents the conclusion.  In this case, the last paragraph states, "Scientific evidence to date shows that vaccines against Covid-19 are overwhelmingly safe and that they reduce serious illness and rates of hospitalisation due to the virus."  Aha.  This sounds exactly like something the vaccine makers would say.  Overwhelmingly safe?  Reduce serious illness?  Reduce rates of hospitalization?  Not.  The bigger question should be, just how many vaccine deaths are acceptable before anyone should be concerned?  One hundred?  One thousand?  Ten thousand?  This "debunking" and "fact-checking" is pedestrian journalism of the lowest caliber, but it is always predictable in style and approach.  It says everything but says nothing at the same time, never offering any concrete or tangible evidence to support its claims while sewing doubt and confusion in your mind.  In short, it is partisan propaganda and nothing more.

Biden's vaccine mandate speech!  Thursday [9/9/2021], President Biden delivered the most insulting, contemptuous and divisive speech by a president in US history.  We all know by now that Joe Biden does not care one iota about the American people.  His life's work has been dedicated to enriching his own family, no more, no less. [...] How dare an American president speak to the nation the way he did, as if we are all imbeciles, as if we are unable to access the volumes of information about the dangers of the vaccines?  As if we might trust him over the hundreds of doctors and scientists who advise against the vaccines for a host of medical and scientific reasons.

Covering up Fauci's role in COVID leak.  Powerful people are going to a lot of effort to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci's reputation, despite mounting evidence of his role in funding dangerous research on bat coronaviruses in the Chinese laboratory believed to be the most likely source of the pandemic.  It is clear that Fauci, the White House chief medical adviser, misled Congress when he denied that US money had paid for "gain-of-function" research in the Wuhan lab.  Grant documents published this week by The Intercept show that the organization Fauci heads, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, funded research in Wuhan on a number of novel (new) bat coronaviruses.  The aim of the research is spelled out in one 600-page grant proposal, titled "Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence," signed off on by Fauci:  to force mutations on the coronaviruses to see if they would infect mice with "humanized" lungs.

A health care worker reports from the inside on COVID insanity.  As the ravages of the COVID narrative continue to wreak damage, there remains a not insignificant swath of brave health care workers, from physicians to CNAs to administrative workers, who quietly but persistently question.  Contrary to much of today's culture, when they are not being censored by Big Tech, they dare to ask for more information regarding the current unrelenting fear-mongering put out by so many among the American media and government officials.  They are often not the loud, abrasive virtue-signalers prevalent today; they are more likely to speak in whispers and furtive glances, afraid of who may be listening.  They are not looking for glory or recognition.  Often, they just want to continue to do their business of taking care of others without fear of harassment, discrimination, forced vaccine compliance, and possibly termination should they fail to do as they are told.  Yet that all too often cannot be allowed.  The message is clear these days from the higher-ups in health care.  Dissenters must be made to pay the price one way or another as pressure builds.  Get the vaccine.  Everything will get back to normal if you just do what you are told.

The smoking gun on Anthony Fauci?  I want to prepare you for something right off the bat — nothing is going to happen to Anthony Fauci.  He's not going to prison.  He's not going to be brought up on perjury charges.  He's going to be allowed to retire quietly from his post, [...] Now that we've settled this and tempered any expectations a pitchforked mob might have, let's examine the latest bombshell reporting from the Intercept.  It claims that documents show Fauci's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, as well as the American National Institute of Health, outsourced gain-of-function research (the manipulation of protein spikes in natural-born viruses to increase transmissibility in humans) to the Wuhan Institute of Virology through a third party, EcoHealth Alliance.  This has long been suspected, as the role the United States government, and Fauci himself, has come under scrutiny amid a deadly pandemic that researchers now believe has killed around 15 million worldwide.

Rep. Guy Reschenthaler to Newsmax:  Charge Fauci for Lying to Congress.  Dr. Anthony Fauci should face charges of lying to Congress for testifying that money from the National Institutes of Health was not used to fund gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-Pa., insisted Thursday on Newsmax.  "There are two reasons why Fauci should be prosecuted, or at least charges should be brought against him for lying to Congress," Reschenthaler told "John Bachman Now."  "Fauci has repeatedly lied on this issue.  He was obviously lying to Sen. [Rand] Paul and [he] gave him the opportunity to correct the record.  He didn't.  He's been that blatant."  Fauci has also lied to the American people, even if that was not under oath, Reschenthaler told host John Bachman.

Biden's Desperate COVID Overreach.  President Biden has a dilemma.  He was elected on a promise to "shut down the virus," but eight months into his presidency, COVID-19 is still raging.  With his approval ratings cratering, he is desperate to garner headlines for taking bold action.  And so, just weeks after his deserved rebuke by the Supreme Court over his eviction moratorium, he has once again gone too far. [...] As chief executive, it is one thing for Biden to require vaccination for federal workers, or even for private companies that are hired as federal contractors.  But Biden's proposal goes way beyond that by ordering all private businesses with over 100 employees to require vaccination or weekly negative tests for all their workers, under the threat of steep fines.  He says the order will affect 80 million private employees.  Currently, vaccination mandates that do exist (such as the MMR shot) are requirements imposed by states or individual school districts.  There is not anything akin to a sweeping vaccine mandate for private workers at the federal level.

Report Shows Fauci Lied To Congress — So Why Does He Still Have A Job?  COVID-19 czar Anthony Fauci has steadfastly denied that he helped fund gain-of-function research at China's now-notorious Wuhan Institute of Virology.  In recent testimony before Congress, he repeatedly denied ever doing so.  But a new 900-page trove of information acquired through a Freedom of Information Act request shows that's not true.  It's a huge story.  Unfortunately, the mainstream media have essentially ignored it.  New York Times?  The Washington "Democracy Dies In Darkness" Post?  CNN? Sorry, couldn't be bothered, even though a 2015 study clearly referred to such research taking place.  It took an aggressive, left-leaning online investigative reporting site, The Intercept, to do the Big Media's work for it by digging up the FOIA material.

It's Not Hard to Figure Out Why You Didn't Hear About Fauci Being Exposed As a Liar Yet.  Dr. Anthony Fauci was testy when asked about Wuhan funding from the National Institutes of Health.  He couldn't dissuade any scrutiny either, admitting that he couldn't say for sure that the grant money was used for other things, like gain of function research.  In fact, his testimony before Congress on the matter was so sloppy that more than a few people, including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), felt that Fauci lied to Congress.  Some even alleged perjury.  RedState unraveled this story months ago, though The Intercept, which also did good work on this [...] got the credit.  Scott Hounsell at RedState filed FOIAs and followed the money but was stonewalled.  The Intercept sued after their FOIA got bogged down.  Yet, the 900 pages show that Fauci might be a huge liar (I know he already is on other stuff) regarding the coronavirus, the research, and its creation.  It only brings more credibility that this pandemic was due to a lab leak.  Yet, no one will know about it because major publications are reportedly running away from the COVID lab leak theory because it makes liberals look bad.

The Coming COVID Apartheid.  Even before his radical demands Thursday for vaccination of federal employees and those of federal contractors and large companies, President Biden was seeking to demonize the unvaxxed.  When it comes to the pandemic, only one-half of Americans are fully vaccinated.  Choosing the stick over the carrot, the Biden administration has encouraged state government leaders and CEOs to sew a scarlet letter on the unvaxxed and cast them out from their social lives and sources of income.  Government-sanctioned segregation appears to be making a comeback.

Biden Proved Today What Liars They Are With Vaccine Mandate.  Joe Biden declared today that not only was he going to mandate that all federal employees be vaccinated, but that he was going to require that any private business with over 100 employees get their employees vaccinated or have them tested weekly.  Also, that workers in health facilities that receive Medicare or Medicaid will have to be vaccinated under his edict.  Now, he no doubt hoped that this would draw attention away from the Afghanistan debacle.  But drawing it away to another crisis and another debacle isn't exactly a good thing.  If he thinks this is going to help him recover and show people that he's "doing something," he's sadly mistaken.  This is only going to antagonize even more people, be more divisive and drive the economy further into the dumper.

Alaska's Governor Responds To Biden Vaccine Mandate: 'If There Was Ever A Case For 25th Amendment'.  Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy responded to President Joe Biden's push to mandate vaccines on Thursday [9/9/2021] by suggesting that the president should be removed from office under the 25th Amendment.  [Biden decree omitted for brevity, among other things.]  Dunleavy responded to Biden's remarks in a tweet, calling the president's actions "ridiculous and unenforceable."  "If there was ever a case for the 25th Amendment," Dunleavy added.  More and more politicians are raising the idea of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Biden from office, including Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), who tweeted last month, "After the disastrous events in Afghanistan, we must confront a serious question:  Is Joe Biden capable of discharging the duties of his office or has time come to exercise the provisions of the 25th Amendment?"

Biden's Vaccine Mandate Has Nothing To Do With Fighting COVID.  A mandate to fight COVID-19, protests erupted.  And rightly so.  But the real reason Biden chose now to announce it is so he could claim credit for what is already happening with COVID.  In what is almost certainly a vast overreach of his executive authority, Biden declared that he'd develop "an emergency rule to require all employers with 100 or more employees, that together employ over 80 million workers, to ensure their work forces are fully vaccinated or show a negative test at least once a week."  Of course, this mandate will raise constitutional challenges.  Which is no doubt what Biden wants.  After all, if such a move is constitutional — and there are [sic] no shortage of "experts" who say that it is — then [we're in trouble].  Because that would open the door to federal intervention into our daily lives on an unprecedented scale.  All that would be needed is to declare something, anything an "emergency."

RNC to Sue Biden Administration over Unconstitutional Vaccinate Mandate.  The Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced Thursday [9/9/2021] the committee will sue President Joe Biden's administration for ordering the Labor Department to mandate private businesses require vaccinations for their employees.  "Joe Biden told Americans when he was elected that he would not impose vaccine mandates.  He lied," McDaniel said.  "Now small businesses, workers, and families across the country will pay the price."

Let It Find Us.  It is becoming so painfully clear that those in charge of our lives either do not know what they are doing or are lying to us when it comes to COVID.  There is really no question that those in authority are just lying to us or are simply guessing when it comes to masking, social distancing, the vaccine, and the variances to come.  It is scary, almost dystopian, that those we have allowed to have authority over our health lives have been so wrong or so dishonest when it comes to the effectiveness of the vaccine.  Big Tech along with major corporate companies have aligned with Biden, Fauci, the CDC, and the Deep State in acting as if they know, but in reality, they are very wrong or very untruthful when it comes to the China virus.  They won't even admit that it probably came from China.  Wonder why?  Whether because we are being lied to or those in power are inept, Americans are increasingly filled with COVID dread.  When we have first-graders wearing masks, motorcycle-riders without helmets but wearing masks — when people driving by themselves in a car are wearing a mask, when family members refuse to invite other family members to family picnics because of vaccination demands — we are not living right.

Joe Biden's Plan for Forced Vaccinations for American Workers Does Not Include Illegal Aliens.  Joe Biden announced forced vaccinations for millions of American workers on Thursday [9/9/2021] from his perch in the White House.  The new rules apply to American workers but not illegal aliens.  At some point, Americans may wake up and see that these people in power are at war with them.

Biden's sweeping vaccination mandates.  Joe Biden today [9/9/2021] announced sweeping new coronavirus vaccine mandates of the kind he and key administration officials have previously said they would not impose.  Biden will require that all federal employees be vaccinated, with no option for those who prefer to be regularly tested instead.  More audaciously, Biden will mandate all employers with more than 100 employees to require that their employees be vaccinated or, alternatively, that the employees take weekly coronavirus tests.  The White House estimates that Biden's new policy will affect about 80 million workers — about two-thirds of the country's workforce.  Businesses that ignore the mandate could be fined up to $14,000 per violation.  Much of the instant commentary I've seen about this decision views it as an attempt to deflect attention from the Afghanistan debacle.  That may be part of what's going on.  But the main reason for the policy is that the surge of the coronavirus constitutes a massive threat to Biden's presidency and to his political party.

Private Employers Prepare Lawsuits Against Biden's Sweeping Vaccine Mandate.  Private employers have already declared they will file lawsuits against President Joe Biden's authoritarian nationwide vaccine mandate for private companies with over 100 employees.  On Thursday, President Biden implemented a new mandate that requires all companies that employ over 100 employees to enforce a vaccine requirement on their workers.  Biden's mandate ignores individuals who have already had coronavirus and have built immunity to the illness.

Biden COVID vaccine mandate blasted by head of federal officers union: 'Villainizes employees'.  The union that represents nearly 30,000 federal law enforcement officers has come out against President Biden's sweeping COVID-19 vaccine mandate that includes the federal workforce, saying it "villainizes employees" for having concerns and hesitancies.  On Thursday, Biden announced a series of vaccine requirements from the White House that could apply to as many as 100 million Americans as part of an aggressive push to stem the surge of COVID-19.  The requirement impacts federal employees as well as large employers, among other sectors.  Larry Cosme, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA), called the mandate a "misguided" attempt that undermines vaccination efforts.

GOP Governors Slam Biden's Vaccine Mandates After He Vowed to 'Get Them Out of the Way'.  Republican governors across the country are sounding off after President Biden vowed to "get them out of the way" if they resisted his mask and vaccine mandates.  During his speech at the White House on Thursday, President Biden said that he would use his powers to override any governor that refuses to go along with his mandates.

The Unvaccinated will be Punished.  Today, President Biden announced the federal government would protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated.  [Video clip]  It is official:  the unvaccinated have become the scapegoats.  As we said in August, "trust them at their word when they advocate restricting your rights and inflicting punishment if you remain unvaccinated."  This is the result (but not the end-result) of a creeping nastiness towards the unvaccinated that we warned about last month, after the NYC required a vaccine to "participate in society fully" and The Atlantic said the unvaccinated "belong on the no-fly list."  Others contributed and pushed things further.  The call by the New York Times' Ezra Klein to start "raising the costs of remaining vaccinated."  Dr. Fauci said the government needed to "do something to get them to be vaccinated."

RNC To Sue Biden Over Vaccine Mandate As GOP Governors Go Ballistic.  Republicans clapped back over the Biden administration's unprecedented 'jab or your job' Executive Order for federal workers and contractors, and a 'jab or test' mandate for corporations with over 100 employees.  600,000 postal workers are oddly exempt.  The sweeping new vaccine requirements, which completely ignore tens of millions in America who have recovered from Covid-19 and have natural immunity, will affect as many as 100 million Americans.

Biden: Vaccine Mandates 'Not About Freedom or Personal Choice'.  President Joe Biden announced a string of mandates requiring federal employees and a sizable number of private sector workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19.  "This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden said in formal remarks Thursday evening.  "It's about protecting yourself and those around you, the people you work with, the people you care about, the people you love.  My job as president is to protect all Americans."  Biden said the Department of Labor will require all employers that have 100 or more employees — "that together employ more than 80 million workers" — to make sure their workforces are vaccinated.  The president's executive order requiring federal workers to be vaccinated likely will affect about 2.1 million civilian employees, plus millions of contractors.

Don't Throw Me in The Briar Patch Mr. Biden.  [Scroll down]  I have serious doubts that only 80 million Americans are unvaccinated, but fair enough; if that's your number, okay then.  However, consider this.  Assuming we are the minority group, the non-vaxxed crew breaks down into two broad segments:  (1) The extremely well-educated who carry commonsense and are in a social strata where they remain quiet about it; and (2) The skeptical productive class of similarly disposed commonsense blue-collar workers who are the backbone of American productivity.  The comfortable existence for the rest of "polite society" is dependent on the scruffneck working class, the dirty fingernail folk who know what Lava soap feels like, and the industrious service sector workforce who fulfill the needs of those who hold out their pinky fingers when they drink from a glass.  If this non-vaccinated 'minority group' stops fulfilling the needs of the vaccinated 'betters', guess what happens?

Story About Biden Admin Allegedly Exempting USPS From Vaccine Mandate Changes.  The Washington Post reports that the White House is now claiming that U.S. Postal Service "workers are part of the federal vaccine mandate under OSHA jurisdiction, though technically not under the executive order."

Joe Biden Threatens the Unvaccinated and Announces His Unconstitutional Vaccine Mandate in Disturbing, Dictatorial Speech.  Today [9/9/2021], Joe Biden took to the podium and officially announced a vaccine mandate from the federal level hitting all private businesses with over 100 employees.  In making that announcement, he trashed the unvaccinated, threatened them, and generally stoked the flames of division in such a way that should worry everyone.  He also asserted himself as a dictatorial figure, able to push governors "out the way" who push back on his tyrannical orders.  I'll go ahead and say it before we get into the clips:  This is the most disturbing speech I've ever heard from a president.  [Video clip]  Here's the president trashing the unvaccinated in a way that sounds like he's trying to foment a civil war, and no, I'm not kidding.  It's that bad, with him repeatedly talking about anger toward the unvaccinated and blaming them for all of society's ills.  [Video clip]  Later in the speech, he went at the unvaccinated again in threatening fashion.  I was almost in disbelief at his tone and word choice.

19 Governors, 2 AGs Resist Biden's Vaccine Mandates.  More than a dozen governors and two attorneys general late Thursday issued statements defying the Biden administration's impending vaccine mandates for federal workers and private-sector workers.  President Joe Biden earlier in the day signed an executive order to require all federal workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.  There would be no option to opt out via COVID-19 testing.  The mandate also applies to government contractors and their employees.  The president later announced he would direct the Department of Labor to create a rule to have companies with over 100 employees mandate vaccinations or weekly testing, a move that impacts more than 80 million workers in the private sector.  At least 19 governors and two attorneys general immediately issued statements disagreeing with the administration's move, with several vowing to defy it.

Our Government-Controlled Healthcare Is Killing Us.  As the virus has run its course, the WHO, CDC, NIH, and FDA have restricted available preventative medicines such Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Ivermectin (IVM).  Instead of good medicine, we have been directed to shut down, shut in, take faux vaccines, and mask everyone and everything.  Early in the pandemic, there were strong indications that a combination of HCQ and the antibiotic azithromycin was effective in preventing and treating COVID-19.  We know where that led us.  I continue to be absolutely flummoxed that, at the height of the pandemic, with patients in desperate need, there was no guidance on either a standardized, doctor-prescribed regimen of preventative care or critical, life-saving early treatment.  HCQ has been prescribed as both an anti-malarial (anti-viral) medicine and as a treatment for Lupus by Rheumatologists for several decades.  Data show that HCQ has been safe and effective and there are thousands of medical professionals who have been prescribing it and can affirmatively testify about its use and risks.  However, we were deluged with hysterical warnings (again with the fear!) from the know-nothing teleprompter-readers in state-controlled media.

Questioning false positive COVID tests in hospitals.  There's a very strong possibility that many of the alleged COVID cases in hospitals are not COVID at all but are, instead, the result of the hospitals using the PCR test, which has a high failure rate.  My family has first-hand knowledge about the serious problems with the PCR test's reliability.  One of our kids broke a bone very badly around a month ago and ended up in the hospital.  The hospital did a PCR test and found her to be COVID positive.  What the department in the hospital that conducted the test realize is the kid had just had pre-op testing done and that the pre-op department — in the same hospital — ran a more accurate test specifically made only to detect COVID.  That test was negative.  Also, the kid is on Ivermectin as a preventative due to some underlying medical issues, so she was very unlikely to have the virus.

He's only doing as he's told.
Biden breaks his promise, announces vaccine mandate for federal employees, contractors and large employers.  Last December, President-elect Biden promised no mask or vaccine mandates:  [Tweet]  He broke that promise Thursday [9/9/2021], in a speech demanding federal employees (except the 644,000 Postal Service employees — see below) receive the experimental gene therapy injections, and that government contractors and large employers require either vaccination or weekly testing for their employees. [...] But one of the federal government's biggest employers is exempt, though Biden never mentioned this in his speech, perhaps because it makes a joke of the public health justification.  Postal Service employees (all 644,000 of them) are not required — for some reason[.]

Psaki says all federal employees have 75 days to get vaccinated or face getting FIRED: Unions say they were kept OUT of negotiations on new mandate.  President Joe Biden will require all of the roughly 2.1 million federal workers to be vaccinated as part of a series of new mandates he'll push in a major speech on the COVID pandemic Thursday.  There will be limited exceptions but any federal employee who refuses the shot can be fired, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday.  Federal employees and contractors will have 75 days to get vaccinated.

U.S. Postal Service reportedly exempt from Biden vaccine mandate after union endorsement.  President Biden had barely finished speaking to the nation about his crackdown on the unvaccinated before news broke that he was exempting a powerful union ally.  The Washington Post reported Thursday night that his executive order forcing federal workers to take a COVID-19 vaccine does not include U.S. Postal Service workers.  Citing "a White House official speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss not-yet-public portions of the president's plan," the Post reported that those workers merely would be strongly encouraged to follow the mandate.

'Show some respect': Biden doubles the fines TSA agents can hand out to unmasked passengers to up to $3,000.  President Joe Biden tore into unruly passengers who have defied federal mask mandates during air travel — following a string of reports of confrontations between passengers and flight attendants.  'Show some respect!' he told rule-breakers in a speech from the White House.  Biden delivered the admonishment as part of a speech where he repeatedly went after unvaccinated Americans who 'overcrowd our hospitals' and elected officials who 'undermine' public health guidelines.

Republicans including Ron DeSantis tear into Biden's 'insane, coercive and unconstitutional' order forcing companies with 100 workers to mandate vaccines.  Republicans nationwide tore into President Joe Biden on Thursday after he announced he'd use an emergency order to force businesses with 100 or more employees to mandate vaccines or weekly COVID testing.  'Forcing this and coercing people, I don't think is the right decision.  I'd imagine that you're gonna see a lot of activity in the courts if they try to do that through an executive action,' Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said during a press conference Thursday.  The Republican National Committee says that it intends to sue to block Biden's order from taking effect, and several House Republicans plan to introduce legislation to negate the order.

Australian authorities now confiscating alcohol to 'limit number of drinks' residents in lockdown can have.  Authoritarian measures under the guise of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to be implemented by Australian authorities and now include the limiting of alcoholic beverages to residents of locked-down apartment complexes in New South Wales (NSW).  According to news.com.au, the complexes have been placed under lockdown by NSW Health authorities, who are now monitoring and policing alcohol deliveries "as part of a policy to limit the number of drinks being consumed each day."  The health agency imposed rules limiting alcoholic drinks to residents living in "NSW Health controlled buildings" so as to "ensure the safety of health staff and residents."

Biden's vaccine mandate is a legal mess and a logistical disaster.  President Joe Biden extended an eviction moratorium already deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, so it would come as little surprise that President Norms would ignore the law going forward with his imperiled presidency.  But Biden's latest blow in his campaign against the coronavirus isn't just a legal mess destined for endless court challenges; it's a logistical nightmare with little likelihood of doing anything other than further tightening the labor market and inflaming the sentiments of the vaccine-hesitant.  As a part of his umpteenth plan to stop the pandemic, the White House announced a series of vaccine requirements.  Two of these, one for contractors with the federal government and another for healthcare workers at facilities funded by Medicare and Medicaid, seem kosher enough, legally speaking.  But Biden's signature mandate is directed at the 80 million workers at private businesses with 100 or more employees.

White House:  Unvaccinated Americans Entirely Responsible for Joe Biden's Failure to Stop Coronavirus.  The White House blamed unvaccinated Americans on Thursday [9/9/2021] for President Joe Biden's failure to control the coronavirus pandemic.  "The reason we are here is because people have not gotten vaccinated, 80 million of them," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.  "Not because of any other reason."  Psaki was asked if Biden regretted his decision to declare "independence" from the coronavirus in July only to have cases and hospitalizations resurge in the United States.  She noted that the coronavirus was "a smart virus" that had evolved and would require the Biden administration to level more stringent vaccine mandates.

Republican Governors Declare War on Biden's Vaccine Mandates.  Amid rising Covid-19 numbers across the U.S. and falling approval ratings on his handling of the pandemic, President Biden announced draconian new vaccine mandates on Thursday, targeting tens of millions of Americans.  In addition to forcing federal employees and federal contractors to get the vaccine or get fired, with no option to opt out through testing, Biden's "Path Out of the Pandemic" plan also targets private companies with more than 100 employees, using a not-yet-written OSHA rule to ensure compliance or require those who remain unvaccinated to go through weekly testing.  The rule will affect over 80 million people, according to the plan.  Employees at health care facilities will also be required to be fully vaccinated to qualify for Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement.  GOP governors have vowed to fight the mandates.

USPS exempt from Biden vax mandate for federal workers.  President Biden on Thursday [9/9/2021] mandated COVID-19 vaccines for almost all federal workers, but the more than 600,000 letter-carriers and administrative staff of the US Postal Service won't have to get a shot.  The exemption was first-reported by Washington Post postal reporter Jacob Bogage, who reported that a White House official told him that "we strongly encourage them to comply with these standards" anyhow.  Biden on Thursday also announced a new Labor Department policy requiring workers at private companies with 100 or more employees to get vaccinated or submit to weekly testing.  The USPS exemption was initially believed to allow postal workers to duck the private-sector mandate, too.

A censored biologist views the COVID vaccine debacle as part of a 'noble lie'.  [Scroll down]  The health authorities view vaccination as being for the overall good.  However, many individuals will refuse taking it as all vaccines have risks associated with them to one degree or another.  In [Bret] Weinstein's hypothetical example, the non-vaxxers are relying on others to assume the risk of vaccination while they 'free-ride' on herd immunity.  But if enough people free-ride, the desired threshold of the vaccinated is never reached.  To counter this, the health authorities feel they must do what they can to get as many people vaccinated as possible.  This includes using blatant falsehoods and scare tactics.  The authorities feel justified in lying, putting out misinformation, and censoring opposing views.  It's all for the common good, they tell both themselves and their political master.  Deception like this can fall in the category of the "noble lie."  A good working definition of a noble lie is that it is an untruth deliberately propagated by the elite to maintain social order or to advance an agenda.

The Top Reason I Hate Masks Is They Force Me To Live By Lies.  Throughout the last year, I've read a lot of masking arguments but none that broached my top objection: mask mandates force me to communicate what I believe are very dangerous lies.  Even if masks ultimately do provide some small reduction in coronavirus spread without imposing additional harms, a contentious claim, to me that is almost beside the point.  The point is the security theater, which assumes that drastic government micromanagement of our lives and indefinite curtailment of our liberties are not only ever acceptable but in fact the moral thing to do.  I'm not talking about high-risk situations like nursing homes or hospitals or the homes of cancer patients, where I am willing to mask and sanitize and so forth for the chance it may indeed protect highly vulnerable people.  I'm talking about in normal life, in public settings.  Despite what people have been shanghaied into assuming, these are low-risk environments and should be treated as such.  Far above and beyond any health considerations, masking is a symbol.  It is a talisman, a ritual, a communication of premises that I utterly reject.

The Left's Hysteria About Kids And COVID Is Much Worse Than QAnon.  Continuing to keep kids locked into masks and out of normal life is a mass hysteria based on conspiracy theories far worse than QAnon.  It has no basis in science, data, or reality.  It is entirely a psychotic power play that sane people must refuse to allow to control our lives, because it's hurting kids and destroying our nation's future.  It's now more than a year after the world learned that COVID thankfully poses lower risks to children than does the annual flu.  In 2020, according to the Centers for Disease Control, "fewer kids died of COVID-19 than of heart disease, 'malignant neoplasms,' suicide, and homicide — not to mention birth defects, which killed hundreds of times more."  We've never shut children off in pods, muffled their faces and those of everyone they see, limited them to small groups, or stuffed them into substandard virtual "learning" for the flu, suicide, or heart disease, because that would be ridiculous.  It would hold their futures hostage to fear porn.  Yet doing exactly that is still what top U.S. "experts" and politicians demand.

"Public Health" Propaganda.  Let me tell you about an under-the-table immunity deal:  Dr. Fauci lied to Congress about US funding of gain of function research at Wuhan to protect US institutions.  And to show their appreciation, the institutions will protect Dr. Fauci by declining to prosecute his lies. [...] Revelations from The Intercept's FOIA requests, which the US government took a year to release to the public (and only after litigation was pursued), show federal funds were used "to fund bat coronavirus research at the Chinese laboratory."

Biden Will Introduce Six Step Plan To Continue COVID Fear and Control System.  On Thursday, at 5:00pm ET, the installed occupant of the White House, Joe Biden, will announce the latest U.S. Government approach to COVID mitigation which is anticipated to carry more mandated vaccination requirements.  The details are not yet known; however, we can judge the approach by looking toward two specific allied nations who have been conducting the beta test on behalf of, and in coordination with, the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Intelligence Branch of government.  The Biden plan is reported to be a six prong approach.  The vaccine passport approach, triggered by France, seems to be the most likely scenario that Biden and the DoS will follow.  The monitoring, tracking, and rules against non-compliance for vaccine mandates will likely come from the approach being deployed in Australia.  The U.S. version tenuously has to avoid the pesky issues with constitutional limitations on government that are not present in France or Australia; so our version will likely be a blend of the two systems.

This Dissent Over Mask Mandates Explains Why Tyranny Wins When Judges Won't Act.  Another day, another "masks required" sign on a business in Dane County, Wisconsin, thanks to a sweeping mask mandate handed down from the unelected health bureaucrats on high — and now thanks also to the Wisconsin Supreme Court, which just refused to do anything about it.  Despite the seven-day death average for the county remaining steady at zero since the middle of May, Janel Heinrich, the director of public health in Madison and Dane County, decreed that masks were once again mandatory.  This wasn't just for the unvaccinated or the vulnerable.  No, in Dane County, one of the most vaccinated counties in the entire country, everybody was ordered to wear a mask in all indoor settings, including the vaccinated and toddlers as young as 2 years old.  A petition for leave and injunctive relief was filed with the Wisconsin Supreme Court, but on a 4-3 decision, the court denied the petition and dismissed the motion at the end of August.  Supreme Court Justice Annette Ziegler sharply disagreed.

NFL Cancels Grammy Winner Victory Boyd's National Anthem Performance over Her Vaccination Status.  The National Football League has canceled Grammy Award winner Victory Boyd's scheduled National Anthem performance after she refused the coronavirus vaccine for religious reasons.  In an email shared with The Epoch Times, NFL Senior Director for Media and Entertainment Events Seth Dudowsky to Victory's father and manager, John Boyd, on August 31 that her vaccination status will make ineligible to perform the National Anthem.

White House signals new COVID-19 measures coming for unvaccinated Americans.  President Biden will announce on Thursday [9/9/2021] new steps in his administration's COVID-19 response that involves testing, mandates, and school measures depending on a person's vaccination status, the White House said.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday that the new components would affect people across the country.  "There are six steps the president's announcing, there will be new components," Psaki said.  "Some of that will be related to access to testing, some will be related to mandates, some will be related to how we ensure kids will be protected in schools."

It is possible to bring clarity to the ivermectin debate.  Currently, in the United States, ivermectin is administered to humans in pill form to treat internal parasites, as a topical cream for rosacea, and in either form to treat scabies. [...] In 1988, ivermectin was first used on humans in Africa during campaigns to eradicate a number of parasitic worm infections, including the horrific disfiguring disease lymphatic filariasis, and river blindness.  It's now being looked at as a potential treatment for malaria.  It may even work as a cancer treatment.  It was lauded as a miracle drug, and, so far, more than a billion doses have been administered. [...] Finding a new drug is time-consuming and requires genius to recognize potential, diligence to carry on the repetitive work to uncover utility, and millions of dollars over 10 to 15 years of testing and trials.  Most drug trials do not lead to a viable product.  Thus, it is both medically and financially prudent to re-examine drugs already in use for "repositioning," "repurposing," or "off-label" use.

It's the Story of the Century, and the Media Yawn.  Throughout all this, the media have remained incurious as to how this historic misery happened.  Anyone with a half a brain cell already knew that a new virus that started within a stone's throw of a biosafety level 4 laboratory in an authoritarian nation likely either leaked or was released from that laboratory.  But acknowledging this obvious fact immediately led to expulsion from "polite" society, or at least from social media.  But the fact that Saint Fauci is the director of an organization, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, that provided U.S. funding on "gain of function" research to the tune of nearly $600,000 on several types of coronaviruses at the very lab where the leak happened may well be the biggest story of the last fifty years.  Gain of function is shorthand for research that adds a new function to an existing virus, which in this case is the rather inconvenient function of infecting humans.  We were literally funding research by our biggest geopolitical rival on how to turn a harmless virus to humans into one that could wreak chaos in human populations.  Mission accomplished.

'You're Only as Good as Your Last COVID Test'.  For over a year and a half now we've had to endure the rampant fear porn of those who simply refuse to acknowledge that viruses are simply going to virus, and that, despite this, young people the world over are in little to no danger from the Wuhan Virus.  This is especially the case among the physical specimens that inhabit football programs at the collegiate and professional levels.  This begs the question:  Why are schools and athletic programs continuing to administer Wuhan Virus tests to healthy, asymptomatic students and athletes? [...] All of this ignorant and foolish nonsense is due to the false notion that young, healthy people are in danger from the Wuhan Virus.  As Joy Pullmann at the Federalist recently put it, ["]Continuing to keep kids locked into masks and out of normal life is a mass hysteria based on conspiracy theories far worse than QAnon.  It has no basis in science, data, or reality.  It is entirely a psychotic power play that sane people must refuse to allow to control our lives, because it's hurting kids and destroying our nation's future.["]

United Airlines Staff With Vaccine Exemptions Told They'll Be Placed on Unpaid Leave.  United Airlines employees who are granted a medical or religious exemption have been informed that they'll be automatically placed on unpaid leave, a policy that one expert described as the harshest in America.  In memorandums to workers who have applied for an exemption to United's COVID-19 vaccination mandate, workers were told they must become fully vaccinated against COVID-19 within five weeks if their submission is denied or they will "be separated from the company."  Employees whose accommodation requests are granted will be placed on leave for an undetermined amount of time, according to the memos, which were obtained by The Epoch Times.  "Given our focus on safety and the steep increases in COVID infections, hospitalizations, and deaths, all employees whose request is approved will be placed on temporary, unpaid personal leave on October 2 while specific safety measures for unvaccinated employees are instituted," United told workers.

Rand Paul was right about Fauci.  Recently released documents appear to contradict what Dr. Anthony Fauci previously stated about funding by the National Institute of Health and gain-of-function research at China's Wuhan lab.  Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci have notoriously had several contentious moments in congressional hearings regarding the pandemic.  These documents appear to support Paul's assertions that Fauci was lying.  Fauci has been crowned by many on the Left as a hero during the coronavirus pandemic.  However, these documents could destroy his reputation.  "This is a road map to the high-risk research that could have led to the current pandemic," said Gary Ruskin, the executive director of U.S. Right To Know, a group that has been investigating the origins of COVID-19, the Intercept reported.

Biden announces new vaccine mandates that could cover 100 million Americans.  President Joe Biden on Thursday [9/9/2021] announced he will impose stringent new vaccine rules on federal workers, large employers and health care staff in a sweeping attempt to contain the latest surge of Covid-19.  The new requirements could apply to as many as 100 million Americans, according to the White House, and amount to Biden's strongest push yet to require vaccines for much of the country.  "Even as ... Covid-19 has been hitting this country hard, we have the tools to combat the virus if we come together to use those tools," Biden said at the outset of what was billed as a major speech to tackle the latest phase of the Covid-19 pandemic.  In his speech, the President directed the Labor Department to require all businesses with 100 or more employees ensure their workers a
