The 2020 Coronavirus

(Scroll down for timely news, or click here.)

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]

Appended 3/31/2020:
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.

Appended 7/1/2020:
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.

The Lockdowns and Mandates Emboldened the Ruling Class.  The entire panoply of the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic countermeasures, from lockdowns to vaccine mandates, has been a once in a century fiasco and among the biggest blunders in American history. [...] Over the centuries, in virtually all societies, people known to be infected by various diseases were confined and isolated to mitigate the spread and protect the rest of society.  Never has a nation essentially shut down its economy, closed schools and confined the entire populace.  Nor has the United States ever enforced de facto national mandates for unproven and potentially dangerous vaccines.  And, never in the nation's history has a pandemic been politicized in order to defeat a certain candidate and benefit one political party.  Centuries of best practices and ethical standards were discarded by many in the medical profession and scientific institutions.  The federal medical bureaucracies abandoned virtually all oversight of the pharmaceutical companies and became in effect their marketing departments, promoting and mandating covid vaccines without adequate safety standards and long-term testing.  What was obvious blatant propaganda was presented and accepted by the American citizenry as unquestioned truth.  The entirety of the corporate and social media willingly morphed into mouthpieces and censors for the government.

Will Monkeypox Replace COVID as the Next Great Democrat Scam?  The evidence on the COVID scam is incontrovertible.  Biden Fauci, Birx, Walensky, the CDC, AMA, and NIH all lied to us.  They perpetrated a Big Con using fabricated life-or-death medical threats to justify a massive power grab, when in fact, coronavirus was no more dangerous to most Americans than the seasonal flu.  Democrats usurped authority by nullifying the Bill of Rights.  Using their COVID scam as cover, Democrats abrogated freedom of speech, censoring disputatious writings or speech and canceling the nay-sayers, often costing them their jobs.  Democrat lockdowns suppressed the right to assemble, whether for work, play, prayer, or even school.  As Washington mandated ubiquitous masking, studies showed the measure didn't work.  Furthermore, evidence showed that masking can harm wearers by promoting infection, by generating anger and conflict, and hampering communication, especially in the classroom, between teacher and student.  And Biden's promises that experimental mRNA gene therapy — the COVID 'vaccination' — would not be compulsory ended up being illusory.  Unvaccinated people stayed healthy and developed natural immunity.  Vaccinated (and boosted) individuals got sick and spread the disease.  Democrats took away freedom, medical autonomy, and economic security, leaving Americans in more debt.

Journalists and other Democrats are thoroughly confused about who spreads misinformation about COVID.  Here is some of the misinformation which has been spread intentionally or unintentionally and no one censors these "experts" who pretend that every one of their pronouncements is based on science. [...]
W H O in January 2020:  COVID will not spread human to human
Dr Fauci: February 2020:  The virus will cause miniscule problems in the U.S.
CDC: March 2020 — The disease will easily spread off surfaces.  That lie was corrected in May.
CDC: March 2020:  Children must be separated by 6 feet in schools.  Later they said 3 feet was OK which means there was never any science justifying the six feet.
CDC: Spring of 2020:  Plexiglass needs to go up to stop the virus.  Later it was determined Plexiglas could cause more harm than good.  That means there was never any science to justify the original pronouncement.  How much money was wasted?
How much physical, mental, and financial damage has been caused to children for all the misinformation that kept schools closed at the behest of teachers' unions.
Most of the media, Fauci and others: spring of 2020.  It is an unproven conspiracy that the lab was the cause of the virus.  How much damage has been caused because Fauci and others lied to bury the story?  How many deaths may have been caused because the U.S funded the Wuhan lab?

COVID-19 in 10 sentences.  As we approach the end of annus horribilis 2 (also known as 2021 A.D.), it seems worthwhile to to look back and summarize the events that have brought us where we are in the COVID-19 saga. [...] What conclusions can we draw from this series of events?  Here are a few:  First, the "health care industry" is largely a syndicate run by government bureaucrats like Tony Fauci and Francis Collins, Big Pharma, and ultra-rich investor-influencers like Bill Gates.  Second, the mainstream media and major social media platforms like Google, Facebook, and Twitter are diametrically opposed to freedom of speech and the free exchange of ideas.  In fact, their goal is the opposite:  an Orwellian thought control of the population and the suppression of all dissenting voices.

An Orchestrated Fake "Covid Pandemic" Was Used to Destroy Health, Civil Liberty and the Doctor/Patient Relationship.  Dear Readers, give the extraordinary coercive Covid vaccination program a moment of thought.  What explains the emphasis, even the use of tyrannical methods in free societies, to force vaccination on populations when even Big Pharma and the corrupt medical establishment only claim a short-run and steeply declining protection from the vaccine?  According to the medical establishment itself, double-vaxxed is no longer protection.  Booster shots are needed every six months for the rest of your life.  This is especially puzzling when we consider the known facts that (1) The mortality of Covid is very low.  It kills mainly those with co-morbidities and those who are untreated or wrongly treated.  (2) The vaccine reduces our natural immunity.  (3) The vaccine causes a large number of adverse reactions including deaths and lifelong disabilities.  The CDC and WHO admit that the adverse reactions reporting system vastly underreports deaths and adverse reactions from the vaccine.  No vaccine or medicine ever before in history has been kept in use that produced even a tiny fraction of the reported deaths and injuries.  (4) The vaccine causes variants that are immune to the vaccine and to the weakened immune system of the vaccinated.  New vaccines are needed to deal with the new variants, producing still more new variants.  (5) The medical establishment has blocked to the extent of its ability the treatment of Covid with two known, safe, effective, and inexpensive medicines — Ivermectin and HCQ.  Doctors who have saved lives with these medicines have been fired for using them.  (6) Distinguished and renowned scientific and medical experts, including Nobel laureates, have been censored and deplatformed for warning about the dangerous vaccine and advocating effective treatment instead.  (7) The media speaks with one lying voice that vaccination is our only hope.  (8) Evidence from a number of countries (I have reported it) demonstrates that Covid cases and deaths rise with vaccination and that the majority of cases and deaths for most age groups are the vaccinated.  (9) The science is clear that the vaccinated spread the virus as easily, or more so, than the unvaccinated.  (10) Indeed, the evidence is clear that the unvaccinated relying on natural immunity are better protected than the vaccinated.

COVID-19: Science-Based Information.  Before explaining why they happened, let's briefly look at some of the horrific — and entirely preventable — US consequences of the mishandling of COVID-19:
- Hundreds of thousands of Americans are needlessly dying,
- Our economy is being undermined, with Trillions of dollars being wasted, and
- We are lurching towards Communism, as dozens of hard fought for liberties and civil rights are being extracted.
But haven't we been dealing with a disease of unprecedented historical proportions?  NO!  See this visual comparison of prior pandemics — and be aware that this shows an inflated death toll for COVID-19.  (For example, the majority of COVID-19 deaths were preventable!)  The question now is:  have we learned our lesson here, or does it have to get even worse before we wake up?

A cell biologist believes COVID-19 was man-made in Wuhan.  There are nine irrefutable facts that strongly suggest that the biggest story of your lifetime is right in front of you — namely, that a pandemic that has killed over five million people and eviscerated economies (and liberties) worldwide (and is still spreading and evolving) was man-made and then either deliberately or inadvertently released.  That is something that neither the Black Death nor the Spanish Flu can claim!
  [#1]   SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for the global pandemic we know as COVID-19, is specifically a coronavirus, a class of viruses against which it is notoriously difficult to generate vaccines.
  [#2]   SARS-CoV-2 emerged only after virus laboratories around the world began to implement gain-of-function research.
  [#3]   The technology for DNA/RNA cutting and splicing, which is at the heart of gain-of-function research, has existed in unrestricted worldwide use for decades.
  [#4]   The SARS-CoV-2 virus (i.e., COVID-19) has exhibited dramatically increased infectivity/contagiousness and longevity in the population compared to the two previous, short-lived coronavirus epidemics, "SARS" (SARS-CoV-1) in 2003 and "MERS" in 2012.
  [#5]   Quite curiously, the world has faced three significant coronavirus outbreaks in less than 20 years.
  [#6]   A pandemic of a coronavirus with the virulence of SARS-CoV-1 (SARS) and the contagiousness of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) would kill hundreds of millions.
  [#7]   The epicenter of the pandemic, Wuhan, China, is the same site as China's BSL-4 biological containment facility (the highest of all biological containment risk classifications), the Wuhan Virological Institute.
  [#8]   The Wuhan Virological Institute has specialized in research on coronaviruses, a fact publicly available by doing online research in biomedical publication databases.
  [#9]   The Wuhan Virological Institute has been the recipient of NIH research funding for "gain of function research," an area of study that focuses on increasing the virulence and/or infectivity of corona and other viruses.  The CCP has never revealed whether it's doing gain of function funding.

The deadly word games that brought us 'Gain of Function'.  In Washington, D.C., Dr. Fauci is a hometown hero, because he is the slickest liar of them all, ever since he rocketed to fame on the tail of the AIDS disaster.  Take the biggest headline lie today about the origins of COVID in an enormous U.S.-funded virology lab in Wuhan, China.  Your National Institutes of Health paid for the molecular trickery that made the virus more and more deadly to human beings, until the armed-up virus somehow exploded out of Wuhan and spread around the world in a matter of days and weeks.  Except that the bug didn't spread to Chinese government centers like Beijing, which simply blocked travelers from Wuhan.  Even Nature magazine, the oldest science magazine in the world, has called attention to the tricky terminology of "Gain of Function."  But Nature's article is still shrouded in jargon.  In the real world, the bug's Gain of Function is a horror story.  The biggest single bug vector at the start of the pandemic went from Wuhan to Milan, where tens of thousands of Chinese workers carried the virus to overwhelm Italy's medical system overnight.

On The Origins of Covid-19.  One of the first papers to publish on the origin of Sars-CoV-2 was The proximal origin of Sars-Cov-2, published in Nature Medicine in March of 2020.  The paper's authors asserted that the virus's genome pointed to a natural and not a lab manipulated origin.  Following its publication, the press and government bodies quickly moved to promote its thesis and squelch any contentions to the contrary.  For the most part, no dissenting voices were heard within the US media complex.  Any allusions to alternative theories were chalked up to conspiracy.  Considering we were in the throes of preparing for the virus to proliferate in America, there was very little time to debate the issue.  Given the general public's inexperience in virology, they couldn't be expected to decipher the paper's assertions anyway.

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:

A Coup Without Firing a Shot.  The last few years can be tracked at two levels:  the physical reality around us and the realm of the intellectual, mental, and psychological.  The first level has presented a chaotic narrative of the previously unthinkable.  A killer virus that turned out to be what many people said it was in February 2020:  a bad flu with a known demographic risk best treated with known therapeutics.  But that template and the ensuing campaign of fear and emergency rule gave rise to astonishing changes in our lives.  Social functioning was wholly upended as schools, businesses, churches, and travel were ended by force.  The entire population of the world was told to mask up, despite vast evidence that doing so achieved nothing in terms of stopping a respiratory virus.  That was followed by a breathtaking propaganda campaign for a shot that failed to live up to its promise.  The cure for the disease itself caused tremendous damage to health including death, a subject about which everyone cared intensely before the shot and then strangely forgot about after.  Protests against the goings-on were met with media smears, shutdowns, and even the cancellation of bank accounts.

Evidence Suggests That Children Who Get No Vaccines ... Have Better Health Outcomes.  Prior to the Trojan Horse event that we politely refer to as the COVID era, vaccine hesitancy was a fringe issue.  Citizens who objected to the forced vaccination of children were kooks or extremists, and even those demanding more informed consent got the side-eye from even more liberty-minded Americans.  The mRNA injections changed that.  I doubt that was the goal, but an increasing number of people, including those who lined up for at least one shot or booster, have been exposed to a level of public health tyranny on a scale that seemed impossible to imagine.  People are just friends, family, and jobs, all in the wake of a propaganda and domestic terror campaign to jab everyone regardless of legitimate objections.

Italian study calculates Covid-19 vaccine reduces average life expectancy by four months.  Lay readers might find the detailed results of the paper difficult to follow, as they are written for biostatisticians and epidemiological specialists, but they are nevertheless unambiguous despite this. [...] Even though the data suffers from the miscategorisation bias, as well as some other potential confounding effects, which they carefully note, this is clearly the best quality study we have available on Covid-19 vaccination to date.

Former World Series Champion Dies At 54 Due To 'Cardiac Event'.  Dave McCarty, a member of the 2004 Boston Red Sox team that won the World Series, died Friday in Oakland, California, due to a "cardiac event."  He was 54.  "The Boston Red Sox mourn the loss of former first baseman and outfielder Dave McCarty, who passed away today at the age of 54 due to a cardiac event in Oakland, CA," the team announced in a press release.  "Our hearts are heavy with the passing of Dave McCarty.  Playing 3 seasons with the Red Sox, he will forever be a part of the curse-breaking 2004 World Series championship team.  We send our love to his wife, Monica, and their children, Reid and Maxine," the Red Sox stated on social media.  [Tweet]

Confirmed: Researchers Reveal COVID mRNA Vaccines Contain Component that Suppresses Immune Response and Stimulates Cancer Growth.  A comprehensive review by an international consortium of scientists has raised serious concerns about the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines' safety profile.  Review articles are summaries of current research on a particular topic.  They are also sometimes called literature reviews or secondary sources.  The review, "N1-methyl-pseudouridine (m1Ψ): Friend or foe of cancer?" published on Science Direct, delves into the potential implications of a vaccine ingredient — N1-methyl-pseudouridine (m1Ψ) — that may play a role in immune suppression and cancer proliferation.  m1Ψ was incorporated into Pfizer-BioNTech's COVID-19 mRNA vaccine to enhance its efficacy.

mRNA is a class one carcinogen.  Carcinogens are substances, organisms, or agents capable of causing cancer by altering the cellular, genetic, and epigenetic mechanisms within the body, leading to the transformation of normal cells into cancer cells.  These agents can be chemical substances, viruses, or even certain types of radiation therapies used to treat cancer.  Carcinogens may occur naturally in the environment, such as ultraviolet rays from the sun or certain viruses, or may be generated by human activities, such as automobile exhaust fumes and cigarette smoke.  The process of carcinogenicity, also known as carcinogenesis or tumour genesis, involves multiple stages where normal cells undergo a series of changes at the cellular, genetic, and epigenetic levels, resulting in abnormal cell division and the formation of cancer.

'Sweden has been vindicated on Covid'.  Almost as quickly as the Covid-19 pandemic swept the world in 2020, governments began locking down.  These measures, we were told, might have been insanely authoritarian and historically unprecedented, but politicians were just 'following the science'.  We simply had to give up our freedoms in order to save lives.  And yet, in Sweden, 'the science' looked very different.  The nation refused to go into full lockdown, insisting this would be better for health in the long-run.  It made itself a global pariah in the process.  So, four years on from the first lockdowns across the West, has Sweden's more liberal approach been proven wrong or vindicated?  Swedish epidemiologist and biostatistician Martin Kulldorff, one of the co-authors of the anti-lockdown Great Barrington Declaration, joined Brendan O'Neill on the latest episode of his podcast [...] to discuss how Sweden fared.  They also discussed censorship and the lockdown on dissent during the pandemic.

Biden Admin-commissioned report concludes Pfizer & Moderna mRNA shots cause myocarditis.  A new report published this week from the National Academies concluded that there is a direct relationship between COVID-19 vaccines and myocarditis, a disease that causes inflammation of the heart muscle.  The report, titled, Evidence Review of the Adverse Effects of COVID-19 Vaccination and Intramuscular Vaccine Administration (2024), marks the first time that a government commissioned report has acknowledged the direct association between Pfizer and Moderna's mRNA shots and myocarditis.  While this might not be groundbreaking news to those who have long challenged the extensive "safety and efficacy" claims brought forward by proponents of the mRNA Covid shots, it's particularly interesting because the report was sanctioned by the Health Resources and Services Administration, which falls under the umbrella of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

NPR CEO: You Better Believe I Partnered With Gov't to Suppress 'Misinformation' About Pandemic, Elections.  I think we've discovered the qualifications that got Katherine Maher hired to run Government Radio. [...] She acknowledges that COVID-19 was a "novel virus" (true), "which by definition means we know nothing about it in real time" (also true).  Maher also admits that we were "trying to figure it out as the pandemic went along" (also very true).  And in the midst of all this uncertainty and ignorance even in the so-called expert circles, Maher's first instinct was to suppress debate and discussion in favor of the government line.  Not coincidentally, that was also the first instinct of Maher's predecessor at NPR, John Lansing.  And it was the first instinct for almost all of the national media in the US, too — to act as an arm of government to suppress debate at the very time we needed it most.  Maher, Lansing, and other media and Big Tech executives involved in this Big Brother syndicate essentially froze that ignorance in place rather than allow for debate and dissent to test the policies and declarations of bureaucrats.  Maher and others of her ilk aren't trying to inform Americans.  They're trying to trap them in ignorance and indoctrinate them in Bureauspeak.  That's not free speech.  That's fascism, definitionally, as a combine of government and centralized corporate power enforcing the whims of the ruling elite.

Karl Marx Conquers American Medicine.  In early April, it emerged that a Marxist, pro-Hamas, anti-American guest speaker gave a two-hour-long lecture at the UCLA Geffen School that included an invocation to kneel in prayer to momma earth and stand up and scream for Hamas.  This proves that Marxist ideological argot, the canons of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), intersectionality, and critical race theory have infiltrated American medicine. [...] In 2022, Heather MacDonald wrote about the Marxist "Corruption of Medicine."  Medical schools and professional organizations are pushing nihilistic, utilitarian, social-justice identity politics, and they're not going to stop.  They are doing this to vulnerable students who are selected not based on merit but based on race, sex, sexual identity, or other preferred leftist status.  These students are incapable of pushing back against the nonsense they are taught.  Her essay is invaluable information about the magnitude of the socialist conquest of medicine.

New paper on Czech population-level vaccination data disproves claims vaccines are safe and effective.  New population-level data on the vaccination programme from the Czech Republic, collected from 2.2 million individual health records, have been analysed by Fürst et al and their analysis has been accepted for publication in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases (the pre-publication date on the article is May 2024).  They analysed the all-cause mortality (ACM) of people vaccinated and unvaccinated against Covid-19 and found that ACM was consistently much lower in freshly vaccinated groups.  Now in case you are thinking that this surely means the vaccines saved lives, it turns out that they found this pattern even outside of 'pandemic' waves (cold & flu season) and they concluded that this was explainable by the Healthy Vaccinee Effect (HVE).  And the effect of this bias was sufficiently large, that they further concluded that it leads to an overestimate of Covid-19 vaccine efficiency in observational studies.  We have been repeatedly asking the authorities for population data to be released here in the UK and worldwide to determine vaccination efficacy and safety.

Massive cancer deaths study vindicates my warnings over covid boosters.  It is well over a year since I first published my concerns that my patients with melanoma were relapsing after several years of being in remission.  I could find none of the usual causes but on further investigation I realised that they had all had a booster covid vaccine between three weeks and three months before their cancer's resurgence, the time in which their immune repression fails.  This was mainly against their will, most only reluctantly agreeing to it so they could travel after the misery of the lockdowns.  Others gave in to the bullying of the NHS and GPs who hounded them with texts and calls (which I myself received regularly) about the importance of having a booster even though they presented no evidence that it could be beneficial.  Indeed in my judgement there was none, and only ever speculative and specious.  Having worked in vaccine development for a decade I remembered an adage that if a vaccine needs a booster, it doesn't work!  What concerned me too was that they were boosting against a virus that had long since left the planet so, at the very least, it would do no good but more likely do harm, inducing immune responses that would be positively harmful and enhance susceptibility to infections with other viruses/variants, as has exactly turned out to be the case.  This is not merely anecdotal.  Despite several attempts to deny its conclusions and claim it has been misinterpreted, this Cleveland study indisputably shows a greater than threefold increase in covid infections in those who were boosted.

mRNA Pseudo-Vaccines: Current Research.  A new paper published in the journal PLOS One, a very highly rated journal, deserves scrutiny.  The study published in this article documents that people with long COVID had much worse outcomes when "vaccinated" (after developing long COVID) than those who didn't receive a vaccine, and that these bad outcomes persisted for at least a year after "vaccination." [...] The above paper matters to me because in April of 2021 I received two doses of the Moderna inoculation almost directly after it had been made available in early 2021, and that decision altered my health irrevocably.  Before taking the jab, I first phoned Dr. Peter Marks, director of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research at the FDA.  He assured me that although the clinical trials had been rushed, no short-cuts had been taken.  And that there were no safety signals or cause for alarm regarding the C-19 "vaccines" based on the more complete Pfizer documentation he had received and reviewed.  That would have been the set of documents which FDA would not release until so ordered by US courts.  As I have spoken about time and time again, I took the jab for two main reasons.  One reason was the governmental threats that travel would soon become impossible without verification of having taken the "vaccine" (ergo, the threat of vaccine passport requirements).  The second reason was that the scientific community and main-stream media were reporting that the "vaccine" would reduce the symptoms of long COVID.  You see, I was a sufferer of long COVID, as I had contracted COVID-19 in February of 2020.  It hit me hard, but I did treat myself with Famotidine, and managed to stay out of the hospital.  However, shortness of breath, fatigue, brain fog, etc. continued into 2021.

Making a diagnosis of overdiagnosis.  Illness is identified by taking a history, examining symptoms and signs, and often by taking some tests.  Many of us seem unwell as much testing is happening — roughly 50 million diagnostic tests, 500 million biochemistry and 130 million haematology tests are performed annually in the NHS.  In the US, it's another order of scale, with 14 billion laboratory tests ordered annually.  Testing is also on the increase:  In primary care, it increased by 8.5% per year between 2000 and 2015 across all ages.  The proportion having more than one test has also increased significantly.  However, there are wide variations in testing, which is unlikely to be explained by clinical need.  The CDC reports that 70% of medical decisions depend on laboratory test results, but what happens when these decisions do not benefit patients or are not tied to symptoms or problems?  Overdiagnosis transforms people into patients unnecessarily by identifying problems that were never going to cause harm or by medicalising ordinary life experiences through expanded definitions of diseases.  As an example, the most extensive study to date of the Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test to screen for prostate cancer found it only had a negligible impact on reducing deaths.  Still, it led to overdiagnosis and missed the early detection of some aggressive cancers.

Prescription Drugs Are the Leading Cause of Death.  Overtreatment with drugs kills many people, and the death rate is increasing.  It is therefore strange that we have allowed this long-lasting drug pandemic to continue, and even more so because most of the drug deaths are easily preventable.  In 2013, I estimated that our prescription drugs are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer, and in 2015, that psychiatric drugs alone are also the third leading cause of death.  However, in the US, it is commonly stated that our drugs are "only" the fourth leading cause of death.  This estimate was derived from a 1998 meta-analysis of 39 US studies where monitors recorded all adverse drug reactions that occurred while the patients were in hospital, or which were the reason for hospital admission.  This methodology clearly underestimates drug deaths.  Most people who are killed by their drugs die outside hospitals, and the time people spent in hospitals was only 11 days on average in the meta-analysis.5 Moreover, the meta-analysis only included patients who died from drugs that were properly prescribed, not those who died as a result of errors in drug administration, noncompliance, overdose, or drug abuse, and not deaths where the adverse drug reaction was only possible.  Many people die because of errors, e.g. simultaneous use of contraindicated drugs, and many possible drug deaths are real.  Moreover, most of the included studies are very old, the median publication year being 1973, and drug deaths have increased dramatically over the last 50 years.

The Collapse of the Mainstream Media Part 3: COVID-19.  During a major crisis, the mainstream media has a duty to ask hard questions and scrutinize official claims and thus fulfill its responsibility to provide objective, accurate, and reliable reporting.  During the COVID pandemic, however, legacy media became the mouthpiece of officialdom whose ever-changing and backpedaling claims were unquestionably parroted by their media assets.  As a result, the public's trust dropped, according to Gallup, who noted in October 2022 that "this is the first time that the percentage of Americans with no trust at all in the media is higher than the percentage with a great deal or a fair amount combined."  As fears and hysteria over COVID grew and grew, the public looked increasingly to the media for information and assurances regarding the safety and effectiveness of the experimental mRNA vaccines that were rushed to market during Operation Warp Speed.  In response, legacy media dutifully echoed the assurances from the authorities that the vaccines are "safe and effective."  However, these claims were ultimately proven false.

4x Vaccinated Youth 318% More Likely to Die Than Unvaxxed Peers.  Young people who received multiple COVID jabs were significantly more likely to die than those who skipped the shots, according to data from the U.K.'s Office for National Statistics[.]  An analysis by The Exposé revealed that, in February 2023, those who received four COVID-19 shots had a 318% higher mortality rate than the unvaccinated group[.]  The other months analyzed showed four-shot teens and youth were between 221% and 290% more likely to die than those who didn't get the shot[.]  Another study found that, compared to unvaccinated children, vaccinated children had significantly higher rates of asthma, allergies, eczema, respiratory infections, behavioral issues and other health conditions[.]  Separate research showed "for every life saved, there were nearly 14 times more deaths caused by the modified mRNA [COVID-19] injections[.]"

Disparate impact!
Whites [are] Twice as Likely to 'Die of COVID' in California Than Non-Whites.  [Scroll down]  Is it a coincidence that White people are also more vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19?  The more vaccinated and boosted race in California is accounting for GREATER share of Covid deaths compared to their share of the population.  Meanwhile, Black and Hispanic Californians, who are less vaccinated, account for fewer deaths than their share of the population would suggest.  A coincidence?  If so, it continues a long line of other subpopulations where higher vaccination rates are associated with greater mortality.  Remember the economic advantages I mentioned that made White people have fewer deaths in 2020?  Those have not changed in 2024:  the laptop class, better medical care, less dense housing, etc, are still disproportionally available to White people.  And yet, despite those advantages, in 2024, Whites are more likely to die of Covid than their less privileged, and also less vaccinated, Hispanic and Black counterparts!  The "white privilege" mysteriously stopped working after the whites were disproportionately vaccinated.

Why I'm pushing on the lab leak again.  The evidence for a lab leak is now overwhelming, thanks to the release of grant proposals and emails from Americans connected with the Wuhan laboratory, as well as technical work that shows how Sars-Cov-2 was likely assembled.  No one talks about trying to find the natural animal host of Sars-Cov-2 anymore.  The virologists must have realized they sounded as absurd as O.J. Simpson when he promised to find his ex-wife's real killer.  (Rest in peace, O.J. And by peace, I mean hell.)  So why I have picked up the chase again? [...] It is safe to assume the Chinese will never be honest about what happened in Wuhan, but that doesn't mean American investigators cannot keep digging.

COVID subcommittee chair asks top science journal editors to testify on relationship with federal government.  Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), chair of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, issued letters to the editors of three major science journals on Tuesday, asking them to testify on the relationship between their publications and the federal government.  Wenstrup sent letters to the editors-in-chief of The Lancet, Science and Nature science journals requesting their testimony for a hearing on April 16.  The hearing will be titled "Academic Malpractice:  Examining the Relationship Between Scientific Journals, the Government, and Peer Review."  In his letters, Wenstrup stated that the hearing would be to examine "whether these journals granted the federal government inappropriate access into the scientific review or publishing process."  These journals were in contact with top White House health officials like Anthony Fauci and Francis Collins according to Freedom of Information Act requests, Wenstrup wrote.  He did not cite any specific reports or studies in his letters to the editors-in-chief.

Two Years Later, Ontario and BC Medics Still Need Vaccination Proof.  For some health-care professionals, the need for proof-of-vaccination remains a job requirement.  Years after our governments first closed schools and locked down our society and economy in March 2020, some governments in Canada continue to wage a fanatical war against COVID-19.  And as of April 2024, thousands of doctors, nurses and other health-care workers in BC are still prevented from returning to work because of their personal medical decision in 2021 not to get injected with the COVID vaccine.  Today, hospitals in Ontario refuse to hire qualified nurses who chose not to get injected in 2021.  Meanwhile, the BC and Ontario governments complain publicly about a shortage of health care workers.

Learning from COVID with Tucker and Naomi.  My big takeaway during the late COVID unpleasantness was how everyone got with the program, right now, from lockdowns to masks to vaxxes.  Especially women.  Most especially liberal women.  I thought to myself: this is what humans do in a genuine crisis.  Especially women. [...] The point is that when a nation — any nation — goes to war it needs the entire population to get with the program, because we are under attack, because it's a Day of Infamy.  And if there are holdouts, then the government takes care of them, by censorship or by other means.  That is what Naomi Wolf, dedicated liberal, learned when the U.S. declared war on COVID.  In a war, a real war, there is no room for dissent.  Indeed, if dissenters are allowed it is a signal that we are not really in a war.  Thus, if the ruling class and the government are serious about the war and winning it then there is no room for an anti-war movement, as in the Vietnam War.

Ten years ago, microbiologist Ralph Baric told Tony Fauci and the world he would make coronaviruses more lethal.  Questioned under oath in 2022, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci largely denied knowing Dr. Ralph S. Baric, a North Carolina scientist and the world's top coronavirus researcher.  Fauci's claim came though he met one-on-one with Baric as Covid raced around the globe in early 2020[,] and though he had funded Baric's work and hosted Baric at a day-long coronavirus research conference in 2013.  Why did Fauci try so hard to insulate himself from Baric 18 months ago[,] even at the cost of giving nonsensical answers while under oath?

Why did Tony Fauci say under oath he barely knew top coronavirus scientist Ralph Baric?  The evidence has been hiding in plain sight for years.  On June 24, 2013, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci invited a small group of top coronavirus researchers to an all-day brainstorming session at a conference center at the National Institutes of Health.  The subject was nominally an outbreak of a new illness called MERS, or Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome, a lung disease caused by a novel coronavirus.  At the time, about 70 people had contracted the virus.  Almost 40 had died, an eye-popping fatality rate, making MERS more lethal than smallpox.  Despite its lethality, MERS appeared to be a minor health threat, because it did not spread rapidly or easily.  So the scientists — and one scientist in particular, Dr. Ralph S. Baric, the world's top expert on coronaviruses — spent the day talking about threats from not just MERS and its potential evolution, but novel coronaviruses generally.  Fortunately, the NIH has preserved a complete video record of the conference, which lasted almost six hours (not including a lunch break).

Tucker Carlson's full interview with Naomi Wolf.  This is quite enjoyable.  But I think Tucker is way off on his attempt to nail a single attribute in terms of why some people did not take the vaxx despite the lies and pressure.  Tucker says it has to do with a strong family.  Not my observation.  Many strong happy families all got vaxxed to the max.  Also were highly sanctimonious about it, and supported all the authoritarian measures the state imposed.  Many marriages broke up over the question of to vaxx, or not to vaxx.  Especially when it came to the kids.  No, the number one attribute I think that made it possible for some people to avoid the shots, was recalcitrance.  Nothing to do with IQ, or any other aspect.  People who are way above average IQ fall for most or all of the government-media complex dialectic attacks.  Global warming, trans BS etc.  It is those with an inate or learned distrust of authority and willingness to trust their own thinking over narratives, brighter than average or less bright than average, that escaped that trap.  [Video clip]

Dr. John Campbell on the Japanese data concerning vaxx injury post 3rd shot.  Why is YouTube allowing this suddenly?  Without any sort of Samizdat on the part of Dr. Campbell?  This is not a trivial question.  [Video clip]

The Bargain with Government Is Coming Apart.  [Scroll down]  The other way governments force compliance, and we see this more broadly today in the developed West, is through information.  The government's manipulation of information is soft power.  It is a bending of the will of the people to the government's will through withholding or manipulating information.  This type of soft government power got a big boost during the COVID scare.  However, the tide is turning on that as well, as court cases move through the system to hold government actors accountable, and the skepticism of expertise grows.

COVID Propaganda: Your Definitive Guide to Bird Flu Terror.  [Scroll down]  [Senator Rand Paul] — who is hands-down the best nationally-elected representative on this issue, an all-too-low bar but a bar nonetheless — knows the obvious truth:  the federal government wasn't just aware of what was going on in Wuhan; it actively facilitated the creation of COVID-19 over many years, which — in combination with the mRNA shots marketed as "vaccines" (see: problem-reaction-solution) — represents the largest criminal conspiracy in world history.  That it's still considered a revelation in 2024 that the government knew about COVID-19 in advance speaks to the negligence of the governing authorities in pursuing any sort of meaningful justice for those responsible, starting with Warlord Fauci himself.  That the demonic, sneering little gnome still wanders the corridors of power fat and happy while a former president is hounded to the ends of the Earth for over-valuing some real estate is, in and of itself, total damnation of the Department of Justice.

Bird flu terror: A guide.  These are the same "experts" who wildly inflated COVID death projections to justify lockdowns, none of whom lost their jobs or their good standing in the anti-meritocratic Public Health cult.  As long as they're consistently wrong in one direction — catalyzing more power and prestige for the Public Health bureaucracy and pharmaceutical industry — they're guaranteed to fail upwards.

WHO Official Admits Vaccine Passports May Have Been a Scam..  The stunning revelations came to light in a Helsinki courtroom where Finnish citizen Mika Vauhkala is suing after he was denied entry to a café for not having a vaccine passport.  Dr. Nohynek is chief physician at the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare and serves as the WHO's chair of Strategic Group of Experts on immunization.  Testifying yesterday, she stated that the Finnish Institute for Health knew by the summer of 2021 that the COVID-19 vaccines did not stop virus transmission[.]  During that same 2021 time period, the WHO said it was working to "create an international trusted framework" for safe travel while EU members states began rolling out COVID passports.  The EU Digital COVID Certificate Regulation passed in July 2021 and more than 2.3 billion certificates were later issued.  Visitors to France were banned if they did not have a valid vaccine passport which citizens had to carry to buy food at stores or to use public transport.

Australia Has Seen a 20% Spike In Sudden Cardiac Arrests, Doctors Seem Baffled.  The number of Victorians dying from sudden cardiac arrest has skyrocketed by 20 percent over the past five years.  This news report seems to dance around the elephant in the room to what could have possibly changed over the past 3 years to cause such a spike in heart attacks.  [Video clip]

A Few Good Reasons Future Generations Will Mock Us.  [#1] Covid:  Professional athletes fought the virus by playing for cardboard crowds.  As the world's elected leaders and supposedly greatest medical thinkers took it upon themselves to make insane rules to battle a virus that more than 99% of Americans would survive, nothing looked more insane than professional sports teams playing before an audience entirely made up of cardboard cutouts.  Even worse, some narcissistic wonders actually paid money to those teams to use their likenesses on a cutout.  Megalomaniacal politicians couldn't wait to spew their own brand of tyranny.  Mayors shut down basketball courts.  School band leaders told their music students to cut holes in their masks.  Then-governor Andy Cuomo (D-N.Y.) beclowned himself by declaring that bars could only stay open if they sold food, as though COVID-19 dodged people masticating.

Rand Paul Drops Another Bombshell.  How many federal agencies and officials knew ahead of time that the government was working with a private partner and the Chinese lab from which COVID-19 likely originated?  According to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), potentially hundreds of U.S. federal employees knew that COVID-19 could have been a result of American and Chinese development in a lab.  "How vast was the Great COVID Cover-up?" asked Paul in a Fox News piece on April 9.  "Well, my investigation has recently discovered government officials from 15 federal agencies knew in 2018 that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was trying to create a coronavirus like COVID-19."  Paul, who is conducting an ongoing investigation, believes that evidence supports the theory that COVID-19 was manufactured in a Wuhan lab and that U.S. government officials could have guessed as much from their information but refused to say so.

Millions paid out for mandated Covid vax injuries just the tip of the iceberg?  The Herald Sun published an article yesterday on compensation for mandated worker Covid vaccine injuries in Victoria, and once again, the comments give insight into how Australians are really faring after the mass jabbing experiment. [...] $6.8 million in claims in just one state for "proven illness related to vaccines," which is a notoriously difficult bar to clear unless you have the 'good luck' of getting one of a narrow list of injuries associated with the specific vaccine that the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) says can cause it.  This WorkCover tally does not include the thousands of claims to the national compensation scheme, of which, when I checked mid last year, only 5% of 3,000+ claims had been successful.  Almost 1,000 claims had been rejected and over 2,000 remained in progress, with many injured Australians waiting up to or even more than a year for an answer.  But the Herald Sun reader comments reveal that these figures are likely just the tip of the iceberg.

So the CDC knew all along about those 780,000 side effects to its COVID vaccine as it was assuring us it was 'safe'.  Does anyone in "public service" ever get busted for lying to the public?  It would seem not, based on a report that the Centers for Disease Control covered up 780,000 reports of significant side effects, such as seizures, tinnitius, and facial paralysis, from the COVID vaccine it was foisting onto the often hesitant public, oilily assuring that it was "safe and effective," and anyone questioning that was an "anti-vaxxer." [...] Meanwhile, as these reports flowed in, they were out telling the public that COVID vaccines, which had never been subject to clinical trials, were "safe and effective."

CDC Releases Hidden COVID-19 Vaccine Injury Reports.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released previously hidden reports of facial paralysis and other adverse events following COVID-19 vaccination.  The 780,000 reports were received shortly after the COVID-19 vaccines were rolled out and show that people experienced a wide range of post-vaccination problems, including heart inflammation, miscarriages, and seizures.  "Loss of consciousness and seizure immediately following injection.  Went to ER by ambulance," one person reported.

California city to pay $800K to family of man who died after firefighters wouldn't enter his care center because of COVID rules.  A city in California has settled a wrongful death lawsuit filed by a woman whose father died shortly after firefighters refused to enter his care center because of alleged COVID-19 protocols.  On the evening of November 17, 2021, 911 dispatchers received a call from a nurse about an unresponsive patient at the Rialto Post Acute Care Center, a rehabilitation and skilled nursing facility in Rialto, California, about 50 miles due east of Los Angeles.  The unresponsive patient was Joseph Angulo, a 56-year-old man who had entered the facility almost two weeks earlier following a car crash.  Body cam footage from Rialto police Sgt. Ralph Ballew revealed that care center staff believed Angulo was in cardiac arrest and frantically attempted to resuscitate him while they waited for first responders.

Powerful people lie to the public.  [Scroll down]  I also have trouble respecting a profession that pushes experimental "vaccines" on patients without their informed consent.  The fact that so few physicians have taken responsibility for their unscientific and unethical behavior during totalitarianism's favorite overhyped pandemic feels like a giant whiff and strike three for medicine.  Or maybe the white coats ("systemic racism" alert!) struck out four years ago when medical associations insisted that Antifa and BLM be allowed to burn down neighborhoods in the name of "social justice health," while the rest of us were forced to stay inside and participate in the theatrical production of the "Great COVID Hoax."

As an Epidemiologist, I Could See Straight Away That Covid Was Being Over-Hyped.  It was an evening in mid-March 2020. Almost two years had passed since I retired from the University of Arizona, where I was a Professor of Epidemiology in the College of Public Health.  I was watching the news from Israel, the country in which I lived during the first three decades of my life.  The reporters were broadcasting a forthcoming catastrophe, a doomsday in the making.  It was all about a new coronavirus epidemic which erupted in China and had reached Israel, Europe and parts of the U.S.  Like everyone, I have been following the news from the Far East since the beginning of the year.  Although infectious diseases were not my subject matter research, epidemiologists are trained to think critically, to question what many accept at face value.  The picture that emerged was far from clear.  A few observations did not fit well with the apocalyptic predictions.

How to spot the next mania: Each new panic follows the same playbook.  [Scroll down]  For me, since roughly 2012, what has therefore been more disturbing than the content of any given hysteria is our continuing susceptibility to collective derangement, which can spread and take hold with alarming rapidity in a digital era. [...] The social mania displays a few consistent characteristics.  First and foremost, it never seems like a social mania at the time.  In the thick of a widespread preoccupation, its precepts simply seem like the truth. [...] Because a proper mania brooks no dissent.  In its grip, everyone believes the same thing, says the same thing, and even uses the same language.  A quasi-religious fervour makes anyone outside the bubble of shared obsession seem heretical, dangerous, insane or outright evil.  Opponents of lockdowns were granny killers; the unvaccinated were pariahs who shouldn't be allowed to fly, eat out or obtain healthcare, while some argued "anti-vaxxers" should be imprisoned or put to death.

Ex-Italian Health Minister Who Made Everyone Get Vaxxed Can't Go Anywhere Now Without Heavy Police Protection.  Former Health Minister Roberto Speranza, who enforced vaccinations can no longer move without police protection.  The Italians are waiting for him everywhere and shouting "Murderer."  [Video clip]

Why Aren't Daszak and Baric Arrested?  The recent news that Dr. Peter Daszak has been "invited" to a May 1 House of Representatives hearing to question him about his 2018 work on SARS coronaviruses prompted me to review the following email thread dated March 5 - 8, 2018 between Daszak at EcoHealth Alliance, Tonie Rocke at the United States Geological Survey to UNC Professor Ralph Baric.  [Illustration]  Especially interesting is Ms. Rocke's statement: "Hi Ralph:  I have a couple of questions about the SARS-CoV spike glycoproteins you are developing with respect to the DARPA grant we are collaborating on."  Here it is critically important to understand that DARPA chose to pass on Daszak's DEFUSE grant proposal — which proposed modifying SARS-CoV bat coronaviruses in order to make them infectious to humans --- because, in the DARPA reviewer's estimate, the work proposed was too dangerous.  And yet, as Ms. Rocke plainly states, Professor Baric was already "developing SARS-CoV spike glycoproteins with respect to the DARPA grant."  This is just one of many glaringly obvious pieces of evidence that Baric, Daszak, and Dr. Shi Zhengli at the Wuhan Institute of Virology were already, in 2018, developing SARS-CoV-2 — the infectious agent that began circulating in Wuhan, China less than two years later.  The 2018 DEFUSE proposal also expressly states the plan to insert a furin cleavage site into the "SARS-CoV spike glycoprotein" that Professor Baric was "developing" in 2018.

Reaction to the article above:
The evidence Peter Daszak and Ralph Baric were part of the work that led to Covid continues to mount.  I don't agree with Dr. Peter McCollough in everything, but he has a nice summary of the new disclosures here, well worth a read; I'll be approaching this investigation and these facts from another angle VERY soon.  Meanwhile, the New York Times and the rest of the gang continue to see no FOIAs and speak no news.  I'm as shocked as you are.

Wisconsin City Shelled Out $700,000 in COVID Funds to Illegal Immigrants.  The city of Madison, Wisconsin, appears to have found a rather creative way to use its allotment of COVID-19 funds.  The local government has reportedly been funneling the money to illegal immigrants and asylum seekers, a move that is expressly forbidden in the American Rescue Plan.  Republican State Sen. Duey Stroebel sounded the alarm on the misuse of funds and is currently seeking answers from the city's leadership. [...] And exactly how much has Madison given to illegals and asylum seekers?  A whopping $700,000 from its State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF).  It represents almost 10 percent of the city's SLFRF grant funds, which have been given to nonprofits providing services to those who came across the border.  This money was originally aimed at aiding the recovery from the pandemic.  Stroebel called out the city's leadership for using the relief funds to assist illegal immigrants "at the expense of Wisconsinites" and referred to the move as "the out of touch priorities of Madison politicians."

Vectoring Dangerously.  Events are tending in the direction of self-reinforcing, ramifying chaos, and the people running the show are obviously insane as they do everything possible to hurry chaos along. [...] Then there's the immense cluster of twisters moving ominously across the planet in the form of the Covid vaccination dysregulated immunity fiasco I wrote about in last Friday's blog (This Is Not an April Fool's Gag), as predicted by virologist Dr. Vanden Bossche.  Translation:  a lot of people getting sick and dying because their mRNA shots and boosters have so screwed-up their immune systems that they are sitting ducks for an emergent variant of Covid gestating in the vaxxed population.  By the way, there is apparently a gross breakdown in medical services world-wide now, especially a shortage of doctors and nurses.

Ready for the 2024 Election Pandemic?  It's that time of the election season again.  Pandemic time!  And this time it's angry!  [Tweet]  I don't want to dismiss the possibility of a genuinely bad pandemic hitting our shores because it is obviously possible.  But really?  After the last few years, you would have to be an idiot not to be suspicious when people start trotting out the "We are all going to die!" meme.  COVID, but 100 times worse!  Disease X.  Bird Flu.

Was Deborah Birx Worse Than Fauci?  This Documentary Says 'Yes'.  Anthony Fauci was the face of the pandemic tyranny, but documentarian Rob Montz argues that Deborah Birx was the real power behind the pandemic policy disasters.  He makes a compelling case.  [Video clip]  I learned a lot about what went on behind the scenes during 2020, but most startling was the fact that Deborah Birx simply ignored President Trump's policy decisions and conducted a nationwide policy campaign that contradicted Trump's decisions later on during the pandemic.  The film is great about bringing the receipts.  It is filled not just with second-hand stories, but also audio from Birx bragging about how she subverted Trump and his advisors.  Not that his advisors did a good job even trying to keep her in check; they let her run wild and didn't monitor closely what she was doing.

CDC Releases Hidden COVID-19 Vaccine Injury Reports.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released previously hidden reports of facial paralysis and other adverse events following COVID-19 vaccination.  The 780,000 reports were received shortly after the COVID-19 vaccines were rolled out and show that people experienced a wide range of post-vaccination problems, including heart inflammation, miscarriages, and seizures.  "Loss of consciousness and seizure immediately following injection.  Went to ER by ambulance," one person reported.  Another stated, "Diagnosed with Bells Palsy today due to left-sided facial numbness and paralysis."  People lodged the reports with V-safe, a text-message system created by the CDC to monitor for possible side effects of COVID-19 vaccines.

UK Health Service Sees Surge in Autism, ADHD Since Pandemic.  Britain's National Health Service (NHS) is suffering a fivefold surge in people seeking autism assessments since the Wuhan virus pandemic and shortages of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) medications.  Research by the Nuffield Trust put the number of people waiting for an autism diagnosis from the socialized healthcare provider in December 2023 at 172,000.  This compares to 32,320 in December 2019, before the onset of the pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns and vaccine rollouts.

Media Continues To Blame Excess Deaths On Anything But 'Vaccines'.  In the initial study of the Pfizer vaccine, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, with around 44 thousand people, with 22 thousand in the placebo group and about 22 thousand in the vaccine group, more people died from all causes in the vaccine arm than in the placebo arm[.]  Initially, it was 15 to 14.  Shortly after, when updating this number at the FDA, the US regulatory agency, the number changed to 21 to 17.  Now, without any surprise, in the most recent update, it's already 22 to 16.  "Most importantly, we found evidence of an over 3.7-fold increase in number of deaths due to cardiac events in the BNT162b2 vaccinated individuals compared to those who received only the placebo." wrote the scientists in the latest update.  After the mass application of the product, an excess of population mortality was recorded.  In The Lancet, the world's most impactful scientific journal, they analyzed UK data: a 7.2 percent excess in 2022 and an 8.6 percent excess in 2023.

Doctors Force FDA To Remove False Statements About Ivermectin.  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has agreed to remove social media posts and webpages that urged people to stop taking ivermectin to treat COVID-19, according to a settlement dated March 21[.]  The FDA has already removed a page that said:  "Should I take ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19?  No."  Within 21 days, the FDA will remove another page titled, "why you should not use ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID-19," according to the settlement announcement, which was filed with federal court in southern Texas.  "The FDA has not authorized or approved ivermectin for use in preventing or treating COVID-19 in humans or animals," the page currently states.  It also says that data do not show ivermectin is effective against COVID-19, despite how some studies it cites show ivermectin is effective against the illness.

The fourth anniversary of Faucism.  This week marks the fourth anniversary of the birth of Faucism, in which an elfin bureaucrat uses a health emergency to shove people around and show what a big man he was.  The birth was in Barbra Streisand's backyard where police valiantly pursued and subdued a flagrant violator of the high and hideous crime of surfing on the high seas.  Gidget and the Beach Boys were hardest hit.  No, this was not a joke.  This was an attack on the liberty of every American.  The Faucists succeeded in using fear to remove us from our beaches and to strip us of our president, who so loved America and so wanted to make her great again that they impeached him twice.  Let us review as I go over an old post from my old blog.  (And I thank Ed Driscoll at Instapundit for reviving it yesterday because we must remember the evil they unleashed in the name of protecting public health.)

Bird flu warning from scientists who say HALF of infections with H5N1 in people are fatal.  A bird flu pandemic could be '100 times worse than Covid' and kill up to half of everyone it infects, experts have warned — as the White House says it is 'monitoring' the situation.  Speaking at a briefing, virus researchers said the H5N1 strain of bird flu may now be getting 'dangerously close' to triggering a pandemic.  Multiple cases of the infection in a variety of mammals, including cows, cats and, more recently, humans, are all raising the risk of the virus mutating to become more transmissible, they said.

The Editor says...
The more sensational the claims made by the government or by "Scientists," the less believable they are.  After hearing all the lies and alarmist rhetoric during the Covid fiasco, which turned out to be ordinary flu with a cure that was far worse than the disease, how can anyone pay any attention to any of their warnings now?

CDC cries 'wolf,' again!  The CDC just released an ominous warning about the danger of the spread of meningococcal disease.  What should the public make of this? [...] Then there is the time-proven aphorism, "fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me."  How should the public respond when a presumably trustworthy federal agency like the CDC intentionally fools them two times or three times, or even more?  First, there was the CoViD scam, which should probably be counted as at least six foolings of the public by the Washington medical establishment.
  [#1]   They vehemently denied the virus came from Wuhan lab, except that it probably did.
  [#2]   Dr. Anthony Fauci assured Congress that NIH did not support gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab in China, where the problem originated, until financial records proved he "was untruthful."
  [#3]   CoViD was touted as an existential threat to all 320 million Americans, though in reality it was no more dangerous to the general population than the seasonal flu.
  [#4]   Face masks were mandated because they would assuredly protect us, except multiple studies, including one from the CDC, proved they don't work.
  [#5]   Lockdowns would stop the spread, except they didn't and worse, they stopped our children's education.
  [#6]   The most egregious CDC falsehood was that mRNA injections were safe and effective.  A mass of data shows the exact opposite:  they were medically harmful and did not protect.
That is at least six times the CDC cried, "Wolf," about CoViD, falsely in 2020 and 2021.

Supreme Court denies appeal of AstraZeneca employee fired for refusing shot.  The Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from a former AstraZeneca sales manager who was denied unemployment benefits after the vaccine maker fired her for declining on religious grounds to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.  The British-Swedish company AstraZeneca makes the Oxford-AstraZeneca SARS-CoV-2 vaccine, which is marketed under the names Covishield and Vaxzevria.  The company also makes Esomeprazole, which is sold as Nexium, a medication that treats gastroesophageal reflux disease.  The company experienced adverse publicity in the West a year ago when AstraZeneca's Chinese division president, Wang Lei, said the company aims to be a "patriotic" company in China that "loves the Communist Party."  The nation's highest court refused to grant the petition for certiorari, or review, in Goede v. AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals LP in an unsigned order on April 1.  No justices dissented.  The court did not explain its decision.

Blood reaches new catastrophic levels of alteration.  The last 6 bloods I have looked at are very quick to reveal what is now happening inside the blood cells.  I had seen this 4 or 5 months ago after a few hours viewing my own blood.  But now this is suddenly becoming the new norm.  I don't have to wait anymore, a large part of the slide will have some of these altered cells forming and it will worsen as the other blood cells continue to progress or transition on the slide.  We already have tonnes of literature and have found candidates for these varying cell types which are now taking over the role of our traditional and god-given blood form.  Each of the cells show complex variation in the internal structures and are a view of what we strongly believe as being the result of altered blood, which can now produce whatever the people who made it want it to, just as some of the papers on the Erythromer describe it as being able to.

Report finds US doctors received record $12 billion in pharma payments in past decade.  Almost six in ten doctors in the US received more than $12 billion in payments from pharma firms in the past decade, an analysis has revealed.  A study by researchers at Yale University found that 57 percent of doctors earned the huge sums from manufacturers in relation to medical drugs or devices between 2013 and 2022.  Most of the money was for consulting services or fees for things such as serving as a speaker at a venue, but the physicians also received large amounts of money for food and beverages and gifts.

Former ESPN host reveals that her 2021 Biden interview was scripted.  In a recent interview with Fox News, former ESPN host Sage Steele revealed that her interview from March 2021 with Joe Biden was scripted by network executives.  "That was an interesting experience in its own right because it was so structured," Steele revealed.  She said her superiors asked her to repeat "every word" that they wrote for her and warned her to "not deviate from the script" they'd prepared. [...] Since Steele wasn't sitting with Biden in person, it is quite likely that he was reading the answers from another script before him.  To sum it up, the Steele interview was more like a scripted short video than an interview.

Sage Steele Says ESPN Bosses Made Her Follow 'Every Word' Of Carefully Planned Q&A With Biden.  Former ESPN anchor Sage Steele opened up about an interview she conducted with President Joe Biden while working for the network in 2021, telling Fox News that her bosses made sure she would follow "every word" of the script during her exchange with the commander-in-chief.  Steele, who left ESPN after criticizing its COVID vaccine mandate, said her headline-making interview with Biden in March 2021 was carefully planned out by the network's executives, and she was told "not to deviate" from the written questions.  The interview focused on sports returning to normalcy following months of COVID lockdowns, along with athletes and fans being hesitant to get the COVID shot, Fox News reported.  Biden repeatedly admonished Americans to "follow the science" and get vaccinated during the interview.  "That was an interesting experience in its own right because it was so structured," Steele said.  "And I was told, 'You will say every word that we write out, you will not deviate from the script and go.'"

Dr. Pierre Kory Reveals Why Ivermectin Had to Be Destroyed.  Before COVID, Ivermectin was celebrated as a "miracle drug" for its role in bringing river blindness to the brink of extinction.  But the propagandists told you it was a dangerous "horse dewormer."  Why?
  [#1]   Ivermectin threatened the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the so-called C19 vaccines.  If Ivermectin had proven to be an effective treatment, then EUA for C19 injections could have been nullified.
  [#2]   Undermined vaccine uptake.  "If ivermectin would have found to be effective, what would be the uptake of those vaccines?" asked Dr. Pierre Kory.  "It would plummet."
  [#3]   Ivermectin would sabotage the profits from the C19 injections.  "They knew it would destroy the market.  And that market, probably over a few years, is north of $100 billion."
  [#4]   It threatened "the market for the competing pipeline patented pharmaceuticals like Paxlovid and Molnupiravir and Remdesivir, and they've made many billions off of those."

Is Justice Coming For Victims of COVID Wrongful Deaths?  Tens of thousands of American families continue to demand justice for what they believe are the wrongful deaths (murders) of loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Such justice soon may be coming due in large part to the dedicated efforts of two attorneys in Florida (working pro bono) to thoroughly research the criminal codes of 25 states to identify crimes committed by various high-level officials and organizations prior to and during the COVID-19 pandemic.  One of the attorneys, a former prosecutor, prepared extensive legal briefs (documenting strong evidence of crimes) that have been submitted to the attorneys general of Texas and Florida — the brief was subsequently filed with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

WHO advice [was] treated as gospel and they got it wrong, says Braverman.  Advice by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on lockdowns must not be taken as gospel, Suella Braverman said.  In an article for The Telegraph, the former home secretary said policymakers needed to be free to consider "legitimate scientific challenge" to the established view in a future pandemic.  Mrs Braverman, who was in the Cabinet as attorney general during the pandemic, said sceptics had been "cast out" during Covid-19 and the "WHO's advice was accepted as gospel."  "We now know that the WHO got it wrong during the pandemic, so we need to ensure that legitimate scientific challenge is considered by decision-makers during the next pandemic," she said.  It follows warnings by MPs that Britain risks "signing away" its powers over pandemic policy to "unelected" WHO officials.

Are We Being Gaslit Over the Cause of the Princess of Wales's Cancer?  [Scroll down]  There are several factors making a sudden outbreak of serious illness in the Royal Family hard to process.  They are all very well looked after.  They did not suffer any form of healthcare interruption during lockdown.  The reason trotted out so often to explain the spike in cancer diagnoses since the pandemic is that people couldn't get access to specialists and treatment.  But that doesn't work with the King and the Princess of Wales.  The princess has always been a picture of health, very sporty and so on.  The King has those long-living Windsor genes.  His father and mother lived into their 90s.  So the risk of them both getting cancer in the same year would have to be quite slim, you would think.  Could there be something causing it in their environment?  We can rule out hardship, deprivation, bad diet and food poverty.  Also smoking, boozing and drug use is no good as a smokescreen, as it is with Liam Gallagher's recent revelation about his auto-immune condition.  So what are we left with?

Heart-Scarring Detected Over 1 Year After COVID-19 Vaccination:  Studies.  Heart scarring was detected more than one year after COVID-19 vaccination in some people who suffered myocarditis following receipt of a shot, researchers reported in new studies.  A third of 60 patients with follow-up cardiac imaging done more than 12 months after their myocarditis diagnosis had persistent late gadolinium enhancement (LGE), which is, in the majority of cases, reflective of heart scarring, Australian researchers reported in a preprint of a new study, published on March 22.  Myocarditis is a form of heart inflammation.  The median time from receipt of a vaccine to follow-up imaging was 548 days, with the longest interval being 603 days.

Looking for 'Safe' Blood in the mRNA Injection Era.  The scope of damage caused by mRNA and lipid-nanoparticle technology might take years to unravel, but the data to date is not good.  Many, including those who rolled a sleeve or two during The Scare are looking side-eyed at the blood supply, and yes, some have risen to meet that need. [...] There is no guarantee that blood from the usual suspects like the American Red Cross is not contaminated (they don't test for it) so if this is something that matters to you, there are resources available to consider now before you need blood and there's no time to waste.

Some Men Just Want...  Can you explain to me why certain of our public health experts helped fund the Wuhan, China lab that synthesized COVID-19, then lied about that, then tried to float a narrative that the bug came from eating pangolins or bats, and then attacked anyone trying to tell the truth about the disease's origin?  And why these same supposed caregivers, along with their political compa&$241;eros, made up social distancing; promoted useless (against aerosolized viruses) paper and cloth masks; and mandated improperly tested vaccines that, while failing to prevent the acquisition or spread of disease, did and continue to do grave damage to the poor souls who trustingly bared their arms for multiple injections?

What The Nurses Saw In The Treatment Of COVID-19 And Their Resulting Punishment! (Video).  In April 2020, I had an article published on COVID-19 and the damage to patients' lungs in their treatment.  I considered a very brave physician named Cameron Kyle-Sidell, MD, an emergency room physician at a large NYC hospital a hero exposing the dangers of ventilators being used in the treatment of COVID.  Dr. Sidell's video on what he has witnessed on the frontlines treating COVID-19 patients:  [Video clip]

Slovakian Prime Minister Announces Investigation Into COVID Vaxx!  [Video clip]

FDA Forced to Take Down Ivermectin Propaganda.  A lawsuit settled last week is forcing the FDA to remove one of its most blatant propaganda campaigns, that against ivermectin's usefulness in treating Covid-19.  The "You are not a horse, y'all" posts will have to come down.  The plaintiffs who filed the lawsuit that made this happen were Drs.  Mary Talley Bowden, Paul Marik, and Robert Apter.  But this doesn't make up for the number of lives lost against effective, cheap off-label use.

Another COVID-19 legacy.  We are currently experiencing another "unforeseen" consequence of COVID lockdowns.  Every day, in medical practices across our country, doctors are treating patients with viral injuries to the body's nervous system at a level of virulence not seen in recent memory.  Not only are continuously mutating strains of COVID to blame, but viruses other than COVID also seem to be more toxic to our nervous systems. [...] Physicians assign, usually by default, viral illness as the most likely etiology in the sudden onset of cranial nerve injuries.  Sudden loss of smell and taste, a change in the mobility of the eye muscles, loss of hearing with or without new-onset vertigo, loss of facial muscle mobility, movement disorders of the tongue or throat, and sudden breathiness of the voice are examples of damage done to different cranial nerves.  The seed of this epidemic in more virulent virus-induced nerve damage germinated during our forced lockdowns in response to COVID-19.

Never trust Dr. FDA.  On October 5, 2015, Nature reported, "Three scientists who developed therapies against parasitic infections have won this year's Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.  "The winners are:  William C. Campbell, a microbiologist at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey; Satoshi Ōmura, a microbiologist at Kitasato University in Japan; and Youyou Tu, a pharmacologist at the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences in Beijing.  "In the 1970s, Campbell and Ōmura discovered a class of compounds, called avermectins, that kill parasitic roundworms that cause infections such as river blindness and lymphatic filariasis.  The most potent of these was released onto the market in 1981 as the drug ivermectin."  Six years later, our Banana Republic government, led by Biden the Bribed, mocked ivermectin — dismissing it as horse paste.  The reason, an off-the-shelf remedy for covid would have demoted Operation Warp Speed to Operation Follow the Law and FDA Rules.  Ivermectin worked, so the FDA tweeted, "You are not a horse.  You are not a cow.  Seriously, y'all.  Stop it."

Whoops!  FOIA response from Santa Clara County reveals that the COVID shots increased your risk of getting COVID!.  Based on new data I just got from a FOIA request, it appears that the public health epidemiologists in Santa Clara County knew in January 2022 that the vaccines made people more likely to get COVID, but they remained silent.  I predict that there will be further silence on this matter:  no accountability and no opportunity for public challenges.  They will continue to push the shots as if nothing had happened and the mainstream media will ignore this important data.

Parents Suing Chicago Teachers Union Over COVID-19 Strikes.  Attorneys Patrick Hughes and Daniel Suhr from Hughes and Suhr LLC filed lawsuit against the Chicago Teachers Union seeking damages for parents over a teachers strike.  The 2024 lawsuits stem from a strike that took place in January 2022.  The attorneys said the strikes forced Chicago parents to face unexpected childcare costs, take unpaid leave from work and cope with additional financial strains.  John Kugler is a former employee of the Chicago Teachers Union and said he was there to help prepare the January 2022 strike.  "The 2022 COVID strike was more about the union election than it was about COVID.  Remember, there was also a mayoral election and the strike was used to see what the strength of Stacy Davis Gates would be" in a match up against Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Kugler said.

This might be off-topic.  I can't really tell.
Fluoroquinolone Alert:  The Common Medication That Could Lead to Irreversible Health Conditions.  Fluoroquinolones are broadly effective and can reach deep into tissues to combat bacteria, which made them increasingly popular among doctors after their U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in 1980.  They also require fewer doses than some other antibiotics, making them convenient for patients to use.  Fluoroquinolones possess the ability to disrupt bacterial DNA replication and stop bacterial growth.  "Fluoroquinolones are fluorinated antibiotics," explains Dr. Mark Ghalili, a board-certified internal medicine specialist and founder of Regenerative Medicine LA.  "This fluoride component allows the drugs to penetrate the central nervous system."  Despite their widespread use, fluoroquinolones face increasing scrutiny for their side effects in virtually all bodily systems.

Why is the FDA Contaminating America's Blood Supply?  With COVID, it became abundantly clear that the bureaucrats at the Federal Drug Administration were the "deep state."  (Actually, that coterie of scientists and doctors at CDC, and the NIAID, are largely deep state too.)  As government employees, they were supposed to share a common interest:  perform work to protect Americans.  Before it became the deep state FDA, they worked to protect the national blood supply of America, ensuring blood products were free of contaminants, viruses, and infectious diseases.  No longer.  Now, the FDA is fully compromised and is actually facilitating the contamination of the national blood supply. (Maybe you read reports last year that the deep state FDA was finalizing new guidelines to remove certain safeguards in place to prevent HIV transmission in blood products.)  Before there was the deep state FDA, there was the "dedicated to patient safety" and "do no harm" FDA.  With respect to the national blood supply, the old FDA reduced the risk of HIV transmission (and the chance of acquiring AIDS) into the nation's blood supply by preventing it from occurring.

Desperate Biden Falsely Claims Trump 'Told Us to Inject Ourselves With Bleach'.  Joe Biden has released a new campaign video with Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi.  Though the video claims to have been recorded live, it hilariously features an insane number of jump cuts, suggesting it actually took multiple takes throughout the recording process to get Biden's performance on the mark.  But, that aside, the video made it quite clear that Joe Biden is so desperate, that he's trying to rehash long-debunked accusations against Trump in the hopes of trying to turn his faltering campaign around.  "This is the guy who doesn't care about science and reason," Biden claims in the video. "Remember, during the pandemic, Donald Trump told us to inject ourselves with bleach.  He said there's nothing to worry about if you do that."

Assessing the evidence for excess cardiovascular deaths.  In November 2022, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) lamented that "millions of people were not able to get the routine care they needed and that ambulances took too long to reach heart attack patients."  More recently, they upped the ante, reporting, "We are in the grip of a heart care crisis."  The BHF reported "that as of June 2023, nearly 100,000 excess deaths in England involving CVD have occurred since the beginning of the pandemic, and excess deaths involving CVD outnumber those involving all other individual disease areas since the beginning of the pandemic in England."  In January 2023, The BHF considered severe ambulance delays, inaccessible care, and waiting lists contributed to "heart patients dying needlessly."  A BHF analysis reports over 39,000 people in England died prematurely of cardiovascular conditions in 2022, including heart attacks, coronary heart disease and stroke — the highest yearly total since 2008.

The FDA Settled With Us Because They Knew They Were Going To Lose.  In my book, The War on Ivermectin, Chapter 33 is called "The Horse Dewormer PR Campaign."  I invite you to see this previous post where I detail the campaign's highly coordinated and sequentially timed actions between the FDA, CDC, AMA, APHA and corporate controlled media (i.e. late night hosts, news broadcasts, newspapers etc). Clearly, the goal of the campaign was to convince the public that ivermectin was a dangerous and ineffective horse dewormer.  In the wake of that campaign, pharmacies stopped filling valid, legal prescriptions and hospitals removed ivermectin from their formularies.  Never had an FDA approved drug, one of the (if not the) safest prescribed medications in history ever been vilified or restricted to this extent.  Just like hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin had to be stopped.  The FDA's role in that campaign started with the posting of the below tweet on August 21, 2021, a week after the report on the below left came out, showing a massive rise in ivermectin prescriptions in the U.S during the deadly Delta wave.

The Lesson of COVID-19: Don't Give Government More Power.  Looking back, COVID-19 shows the nation's founders — rather than intellectual social engineers — had it right.  The founders created a system of checks and balances that made it hard for leaders to easily have their way. "A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions," wrote James Madison.  The pandemic stripped away those precautions, albeit (mostly) temporarily. [...] In fairness, the response to COVID by many ordinary Americans left much to be desired. [...] Nevertheless, the skeptics generally were correct.  "The coronavirus shutdowns have created a dichotomy between those who tend to trust whatever the authorities say — and those who don't seem to trust any official information at all," I wrote in May 2020.

Researchers Concerned About Blood Transfusions From Vaccinated and Long-COVID Patients, Propose Changes:  Preprint.  In a preprint published on March 15, six Japanese doctors and researchers propose changes to the processing of blood donations from COVID-19-vaccinated people and those who have a history of long COVID.  "The first and extremely important initial response is to make the medical personnel aware that such 'risks' exist," the lead author, Jun Ueda, who has a doctorate in the field of integrated life sciences, told The Epoch Times.  The doctors come from renowned Japanese hospitals and universities, including Tokyo Medical University Hospital, Tokyo University of Science, Asahikawa Medical University, and Okamura Memorial Hospital.

Pfizer Finally Releases Myocarditis Study for Children Who Received COVID-19 Vaccine.  Pfizer and its partner BioNTech have finally released the results of clinical trials exploring whether their COVID-19 vaccine causes subclinical heart inflammation.  The companies found that multiple vaccine recipients suffered heart-related symptoms, but said none met the definition of myocarditis, or heart inflammation.  Researchers with the companies and other institutions analyzed the levels of troponin I, a sign of possible heart damage, in children aged 5 to 30 before and after receipt of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.  They also monitored participants for heart-related symptoms, including chest pain.  If patients suffered symptoms, doctors examined them and researchers performed other tests, such as an electrocardiogram, as well as additional troponin measurements.  Ten vaccinated participants, including six under the age of 12, reported relevant symptoms.  The researchers, though, said none had myocarditis after additional testing.

FDA Settles Ivermectin Case, Agrees to Remove Controversial 'Stop It' Post.  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has agreed to remove social media posts and webpages that urged people to stop taking ivermectin to treat COVID-19, according to a settlement dated March 21.  The FDA has already removed a page that said:  "Should I take ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19?  No.  Within 21 days, the FDA will remove another page titled, "why you should not use ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID-19," according to the settlement announcement, which was filed with federal court in southern Texas.

What Might the US Owe the World for Covid-19?  The US government (USG) funded and supported a program of dangerous laboratory research that may have resulted in the creation and accidental laboratory release of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that caused the Covid-19 pandemic.  Following the outbreak, the USG lied in order to cover up its possible role.  The US Government should correct the lies, find the facts, and make amends with the rest of the world.  A group of intrepid truth-seekers — journalists, scientists, whistleblowers — have uncovered a vast amount of information pointing to the likely laboratory origin of SARS-CoV-2.  Most important has been the intrepid work of the The Intercept and US Right to Know (USRTK), especially investigative reporter Emily Kopp at USRTK.  Based on this investigative work, the Republican-led House Committee on Oversight and Accountability is now carrying out an important investigation in a Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic.  In the Senate, the leading voice for transparency, honesty, and reason in investigating the origin of SARS-Cov-2 has been Republican Senator Rand Paul.

Rare Neurological Disorder Linked to COVID-19 Vaccination, Research Suggests.  A new systematic review suggests COVID-19 vaccination could trigger a rare neurological disorder that primarily affects the nerves outside the central nervous system, causing pain, muscle atrophy, and, in some cases, paralysis.  In a March 14 paper published in Vaccines, researchers found Parsonage — Turner syndrome (PTS) may occur after all COVID-19 vaccine types and can recur with additional doses of similar or unrelated vaccines.  To determine whether a relationship exists between COVID-19 vaccines and the development of PTS, researchers searched LitCOVID and the World Health Organization's COVID-19 databases through Jan. 25.  They found 59 cases of PTS reported in the literature following COVID-19 vaccination.

'15 Days to Slow the Spread'.  Four years ago, government officials told us, "Stay home!" We have "15 days to slow the spread."  Days turned into months and then years, while officials chipped away at our freedoms.  I have long been wary of politicians, but even I was surprised at how authoritarian many were eager to be.  Some demanded police to go after people surfing.  They took down the rims of basketball hoops.  Children's playgrounds were taped up like crime scenes.  They told people in rural Utah and Wyoming to stay in their homes.  In the name of safety, politicians did many things that diminished our lives, without making us safer.  They complied with teachers unions' demand to keep schools closed.  Kids' learning has been set back by years.

A Tinfoil-Hat Conspiracist no Longer.  Who would have guessed there would be two startling revelations about the great Covid over-reach in the space of about a week, upholding claims previously dismissed as conspiracy theories and misinformation?  First, a peer-reviewed scientific study linked Covid vaccines to a range of serious health disorders, and then Queensland's Supreme Court ruled the vaccine mandates imposed on police and ambulance workers were unlawful.  Both provide a welcome dose of reality after the worst days of lockdowns and vaccine roll-outs, when we were all indoctrinated with the message that the jabs were "perfectly safe and effective."  Now we know for certain that they don't prevent contraction or transmission of the virus and there's an acknowledged chance they could kill or maim you.  Some of us have been aware of that for a long time, but of course vaccine promoters including Big Pharma and government bureaucrats will still insist that the risk is "very low" the acknowledged disorders are "rare" and vaccines still provide the best means of protection against covid.  But how low is "very low" and how "rare" is rare?

Medical practice has lost its way.  Proper, correct, ethical medical care is apolitical, non-ideological, and devoid of any value judgment other than the best course of treatment for the individual patient at hand.  Care givers treat all who are ill, without regard to race, religion, place of birth, political affiliation, gender preference, or past activities:  good doctors treat convicted felons, even terrorists.  Repairing social ills or injustices, past or present, has no place in proper medical practice.  Courses in social justice have no place in medical schools.  Clinical physicians do not resolve social injustices, practice population medicine, or solve public health concerns.  They care for patients retail, one at a time, providing best care for the specific patient at hand.  Proper medical care involves a legally protected fiduciary service contract between patient and provider.  Patients have medical autonomy, i.e., sole decision-making authority, and physicians have authority commensurate with their responsibility.  That medical ethos no longer applies to those who practice medicine in the U.S.

State of American Health Care.  [Scroll down]  Moreover, faith in American medicine has certainly been tarnished by the treatment afforded those health care workers who dared to question the federal government's edicts concerning the mRNA Covid-19 "vaccines."  Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo declared that "COVID-19 vaccines are not appropriate for use in human beings" and called for a complete halt of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.  Ladapo issued this warning "based on overwhelming evidence that the COVID-19 shots that Pfizer and Moderna assured us were 'safe' are contaminated with plasmid DNA."  Consider the fact that the government continues to purposefully censor truthful information.  In fact, Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, the psychiatrist who challenged the University of California Irvine Vaccine Mandates was fired for this.  It has led to what is being called the most important free speech case in a generation known as Missouri v. Biden (Murthy v. Missouri).

Long Tyranny [is] A Greater Threat Than Long COVID.  [Scroll down]  Now, four years later, the experts are telling us to treat the disease similar to the way we treat the flu.  The much-feared "long COVID appears to manifest as a post-viral syndrome indistinguishable from seasonal influenza and other respiratory illnesses," says Medical Xpress.  Yet the damage wrought by governments, spread by the tyrannococcus machine, will continue well beyond 2024.  "We will be dealing with the harm done for decades," says Martin Kulldorf, the biostatistician and infectious-disease epidemiologist who was fired from his Harvard faculty position because he objected to COVID vaccine mandates.  Rather than respond in any sort of reasonable way, elected and unelected officials acted as tyrants, closing businesses, restricting our freedom to move about, limiting the number of people who could gather in private homes, requiring mask use and mandating vaccinations. "There was very little oversight or limitation on the powers conferred to" the agencies that made those decisions, says the Committee to Unleash Prosperity.  They simply gave themselves power they should have never wielded.

The Left's Love Affair With Mandates.  The hype over EV's is sinking fast, like enthusiasm for COVID jabs.  But our government is truly in love with mandates "for the public good" that don't work. [...] The Left has flexed their muscle on ways to get around our constitutionally protected rights.  They've discovered a new drug to get high on, and they're not going to give it up willingly.  The COVID jab and EV mandates reveal striking similarities.  Both occurred quickly in recent years, both were woefully untested before being forced on us, and both have undesirable long-term outcomes.  The shot (I'm not calling it a "vaccine" because it fails the former definition of "vaccine") was forced into arms before we knew its efficacy and safety risks.  In under a year, we discovered that it didn't live up to its promise to "stop the virus in its tracks" so the heralded benefits morphed from stopping the virus to well, maybe you'll have less of a chance of being hospitalized.  Later, we learned more about the harm it has done to otherwise healthy hearts and reproductive systems.  Years from now we may discover the shot will have caused far more long-term harm to our lives than good.

CDC Finally Releases 148 Page Study on Myocarditis Following COVID Vaccine — And Every Single Word is Redacted!.  Zachary Stieber, a reporter with the Epoch Times, released the CDC report on the frequency of myocarditis following the COVID vaccines. [...] Last September, nearly two hears after the introduction of the COVID vaccine, Dr. Anthony Fauci finally admitted the vaccines cause myocarditis.  So when did they learn this?  And how severe were the results?  Vigilant Fox added: "They're is obviously something very wrong that they are trying to hide.  [Tweet]

New report blasts government's COVID response, warns of repeating same mistakes.  A new report has sharply criticized the government's response to the coronavirus pandemic, writing that lockdowns, school closures and vaccine mandates were "catastrophic errors" resulting in many Americans losing faith in public health institutions.  The report, published this week by the non-profit Committee to Unleash Prosperity (CTUP), paints a damning indictment of the government's role in the crisis and offers ten lessons that must be learned, to avoid the same mistakes from being repeated.  Some of the guidance includes halting all binding agreements or pledges to the World Health Organization (WHO), term limits for all senior health agency positions as well as limiting the powers of health agencies to make sure they are strictly advisory and do not have the power to set laws or mandates.  The paper, titled "COVID Lessons Learned A Retrospective After Four Years," states that granting unprecedented powers to public health agencies, many of which imposed strict limits on basic civil liberties, had little positive benefit and instead helped stoke fear among the public.

Stunning claims of whistleblower need to go viral.  In my last article, I told the story of Richard Hirschman, the famous/infamous embalmer who first showed the world images of the "horrifying" new blood clots he's routinely finding in the bodies he's embalming.  These findings, later corroborated by a survey that found 73 percent of embalmers were seeing the same things, could be one of the most significant, "narrative-changing" revelations regarding the non-safe Covid "vaccines."  However, the claims of a more-recent whistleblower might be even more significant as this whistleblower provided highly-believable evidence that medical personnel, on an almost daily basis, are seeing the exact same "white fibrous" substances in living patients.  This whistleblower, who prefers to remain anonymous, made his claims on Feb. 25 in a podcast interview conducted by Dr. Philip McMillan, a physician and clinical researcher with 30 years' experience who now publishes a Substack newsletter in addition to his podcast program.  In my opinion, the shocking information and evidence presented by this whistleblower should be enough to cease all mRNA vaccinations.

Doctors Say 'Long Covid' Doesn't Exist.  Doctors have challenged the term 'long Covid,' claiming it does not exist and causes unnecessary fear in patients.  Chief Health Officer of Queensland, Australia, Dr. John Gerrard, says the term 'long Covid' implies a false uniqueness of COVID-19 and that other viruses, like the flu, can result in similar post-viral syndrome. "We believe it is time to stop using terms like 'long Covid,'" said Gerrard.  "They wrongly imply there is something unique and exceptional about longer term symptoms associated with this virus," he continued.  "This terminology can cause unnecessary fear, and in some cases, hypervigilance to longer symptoms that can impede recovery.  "Gerard's comments follow a study that found no evidence to suggest that those who had COVID-19 were any more likely to have moderate-to-severe functional limitations a year after their diagnosis than those who contracted other viral infections.  "In health systems with highly vaccinated populations, long Covid may have appeared to be a distinct and severe illness because of high volumes of Covid cases during the pandemic.  However, we found that the rates of ongoing symptoms and functional impairment are indistinguishable from other post-viral illnesses," Gerard said[.]

Consequences Minus Truth.  One of the plaintiffs joined to Missouri v.  Biden is Dr. Martin Kulldorff, a biostatistician and professor at the Harvard Medical School, who opposed Covid-19 lockdowns and vaccine mandates.  He was one of the authors of the open letter called The Great Barrington Declaration (October, 2020) that articulated informed medical dissent for a bamboozled public.  He was fired from his job at Harvard just this past week for continuing his refusal to take the vaccine.  Harvard remains among a handful of institutions that still require it, despite massive evidence that it is ineffective and hazardous.  Like West Point, maybe Harvard should ditch its motto, Veritas, Latin for "truth."

They're still claiming the Covid vax is safe and effective.  Yet somehow Dr. Pierre Kory treats hundreds of patients who've been badly injured by it.  Why is no one in the public health establishment paying attention?  [Tweet with video clip]

The disinformation playbook: how industry manipulates the science-policy process — and how to restore scientific integrity.  The scientific community faces frightening realities:  the public's ability to distinguish science from pseudoscience is declining, corporate efforts to influence evidence-based policymaking are intensifying, and foundational processes to protect science — including the integrity and independence of peer review systems and advisory committees — are under attack.  The examples covered here offer a glimpse into the problems that are ubiquitous worldwide, and the solutions presented can be adopted outside of the United States.  All stakeholders, in and outside the global scientific community, must develop and enforce policies that ensure transparency and accountability in science-based decision making.

On Long COVID Awareness Day, remember this:  Long COVID is fake!  COVID fanaticism birthed many disasters, from school closures to lockdowns to the apotheosis of Anthony Fauci — but none was so utterly mad as the idea of "long COVID," a mysterious condition that dogged sufferers months after infection and was used to justify the endless continuance of every draconian rule.  Now a new Australian study shows the idea was always wrong — just in time for International Long COVID Awareness Day.  Dr. John Gerrard, Queensland's chief health officer, oversaw a study of 5,000-plus Australians with fatigue, cough and other symptoms associated with long COVID; these sick Aussies had taken COVID tests with both positive and negative results.

It Was Anthony Fauci's Fault.  [Scroll down]  World leaders sometimes make bad decisions.  However, the unilateral decision of Fauci to have the NIAID partner with Moderna to develop an mRNA vaccine in response to the predictable COVID pandemic and not have the NIAID engage the FDA to grant EUA for the immediately available and effective off-label use of FDA-approved therapeutics that were already on pharmacy shelves has had devastating unintended consequences.  People can ignore the facts and blame the president all they want.  But the decision to use an experimental, untested, and unapproved mRNA technology — gene therapy — condemned millions of innocents to die or suffer life-threatening side effects while the more rational decision to use inexpensive and effective therapeutics would have saved lives.  There is no doubt if we had listened to President Trump on the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine, we would not have experienced a 12-Sigma Mass Death Event.  We have Fauci, the CDC, NIAID, and the FDA to thank for that.

Harvard Fires Professor For Telling Truth About COVID Mandates.  Harvard University, like so many other formerly "elite" institutions, embarrassed itself during COVID.  Universities, ostensibly devoted to searching for truth and fact, revealed a long-formenting truth in 2020:  they no longer viewed themselves as truth-based instructional organizations.  Instead, their sole focus and goal is indoctrination.  Pushing an ideological message, promoting progressive activism and ensuring that identity and nonsensical anti-truth is privileged over objective reality.  That concerning shift in priority has been underway for decades, but rose to the forefront rapidly in 2020, shoved by necessity and opportunity.  Harvard, as well as their ideological allies in the media, demanded conformity with prevailing narratives over the pursuit of truth.  Because the "wrong" people could potentially be correct.  And even 4 years later, after the prevailing narratives conclusively being proven wrong on masks, lockdowns, school closures and a host of other COVID-related issues, they're still cracking down on anyone who spoke out against the abandonment of their core principles.

Where did the white clots come from?  Numerous funeral directors have now reported struggling to embalm bodies because of finding white "calamari-like" clots blocking the veins.  What do we know about these clots?  John Campbell has interviewed a series of funeral directors who describe a decreasing incidence of such clots but claim they remain in about 20% of those who die in 2023.  Are they just conventional post mortem clots?  Although some may have formed post mortem they are not what is usually seen.  Post mortem, the blood can separate into a yellow plasma fraction and a red cellular fraction and each can clot separately.  The result is a soft, jelly-like, yellow clot known as a "chicken fat clot" attached to a "blackcurrant jelly" clot.  The yellow colouring comes from entrapped lipids, proteins and bilirubin in the plasma.  What the embalmers are describing is white throughout and has tensile strength — even before being placed in formaldehyde.  Is the testimony from multiple funeral directors so easily dismissed as if they had never seen post mortem clots before?

Pro-Vax Doctor Drops Dead of Heart Attack at 43.  A prominent doctor, who used social media to pressure the public into taking Covid mRNA vaccines, has died suddenly at just 43 years old, according to reports.  Dr. Vicky Jennings, from South Africa, was an internationally recognized trauma surgeon.  The mother of two passed away unexpectedly last week after reportedly suffering a fatal heart attack.  Jennings' death was announced by Netcare, the healthcare company that she worked for.

Criminal CDC Releases 148 Blank Pages on COVID Vax Myocarditis After FOIA.  The CDC — under the guidance of the "no malarkey, Jack," "most transparent administration in world history" — has released a doozy of a 148-page report on myocarditis induced by the COVID-19 vaccines.  It's excellent, obviously, that such a lengthy report looks into one of the most serious public health issues of our era.  This is what COVID skeptics have been demanding for years at this point — a demand which, until now, has gone nearly entirely ignored by the Public Health authorities. [...] It's entirely, 100% blank — as in, 148 pages of pure whiteness, by far the whitest thing ever permitted to be associated with the Brandon entity's diverse White House.

Why Americans No Longer Trust the Healthcare System.  Doctors, hospitals, and healthcare systems used to be held in high esteem, but no more.  Aren't these the "experts" in white coats?  What happened to that trust? [...] During COVID-19, it was primarily finger-wagging leftists in the media and out in public that were nagging anyone not wearing at least one mask.  They were also pushing an endless series of poorly tested vaccines which now may be causing more harm than good. [...] Lastly the medical system itself squandered trust.  They castigated longstanding and safe off-label therapeutics for COVID-19 while promoting minimally tested vaccines that were supposed to stop infection and transmission but did neither.  They mandated children be vaccinated, the one group with a near zero risk for COVID-19 death.  They imposed an arbitrary 6-foot distancing rule causing school and business closures.  They now ignore myriad young healthy individuals dying suddenly and population based excess mortality far greater than expected.

CDC Tells People 65 And Older To Take More COVID-19 Booster Shots.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that adults aged 65 and above get an additional dose of the updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine following a heated debate by an advisory panel on the issue.  The vaccination was recommended by the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) panel.  "The recommendation acknowledges the increased risk of severe disease from COVID-19 in older adults, along with the currently available data on vaccine effectiveness," the agency said in a Feb. 28 press release.  "Adults 65 years and older are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, with more than half of COVID-19 hospitalizations during October 2023 to December 2023 occurring in this age group."  "Data continues to show the importance of vaccination to protect those most at risk for severe outcomes of COVID-19.  An additional dose of the updated COVID-19 vaccine may restore protection that has waned since a fall vaccine dose, providing increased protection to adults ages 65 years and older," it said.

American Christian pastors coerced congregants to take COVID jabs through covert "Faith4Vaccines" scheme.  In exchange for cash bribes from the government, thousands of American pastors pushed Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) "vaccines" on their congregants, many of whom are now chronically ill or dead as a result.  The report from America Out Loud explains that a government program called "Faith4Vaccines," which was birthed out of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) vaccine propaganda machine COVID-19 Community Corps, convinced money-grubbing "faith leaders" to sell out their flocks to Big Pharma.  The COVID-19 Community Corps has 86 founding members, most of them falling into the "faith leaders" category.  They include (but are not limited to):
  •   American Baptist Church
  •   Catholic Charities USA
  •   Episcopal Church
  •   National Association of Evangelicals
  •   Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America
  •   New York Jewish Agenda

CDC Pushes The Next Round Of Genocide By Urging People To Get The New Clot Shot.  According to the CDC in a newly released warning, Americans 65 years old and older should be rushing out to get the latest COVID vax booster shots, with the CDC reporting more than half of COVID-19 hospitalizations during October 2023 to December 2023 occurred in this age group."  Warning that as of February 23rd, only 22% of American adults have gotten their updated boosters, including 41.8% of those over the age of 65, as this Zero Hedge story touching on that CDC warning reports, even the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) panel, which put out the recent advisory, had a difference of opinion on the actual 'wording' of the announcement.

The covid conmen [are] landing top jobs.  It's been announced that Sir Patrick Vallance, the Government's former chief scientific adviser, has joined the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, appointed to their 'team of expert Strategic Counsellors' with former chief of the defence staff General Sir Nick Carter.  What benefits they will receive, in kind or otherwise, the TBI's press release did not elaborate on.  Sir Patrick, who according to his colleagues in the Civil Service may go down as 'the most influential chief scientific adviser we've had', is far from the first of the government's senior covid 'experts' to find his services sought so soon after retirement.  Last May, less than two months after standing down, the former deputy chief medical officer Sir Jonathan Van-Tam took up a role as part-time clinical adviser to Moderna, the American pharmaceutical and biotechnology company and covid vaccine maker.  Three months later Moderna made him their senior consultant for medical affairs.

Four Years After Being Thrown in Jail for Opening Salon During COVID Lockdown, Texas Hairstylist Gets Huge News.  "The best revenge is massive success," a quote often attributed to the iconic singer Frank Sinatra.  For Shelley Luther, who risked it all to keep her business operating during the COVID-19 lockdowns, achieving success by reforming the very bureaucratic system that almost broke her could represent the greatest vindication after her many trials.  Luther defeated incumbent State Rep. Reggie Smith, earning 53.42 percent of the vote in Tuesday's primary election, according to KRQX.  Luther, a former Dallas salon owner, gained national attention for defying COVID-19 shutdown orders in 2020.  What began as an act of civil disobedience opposing COVID-19 business closure orders turned into a weeks-long legal saga that ultimately prompted Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to amend his pandemic executive orders.

Study Finds COVID Patients Who Took Ivermectin Recovered Faster.  A recent UK study shows that COVID-19-positive patients who were given ivermectin recovered faster than those who weren't.  The large-scale open-label trial involved 2,157 participants who received ivermectin and 3,256 who received typical care from June 23, 2021, to July 1, 2022.  According to the research published in the Journal of Infection, ivermectin recipients recovered two days faster with a significant statistical difference.  The report further indicates that compared to the four percent of patients receiving standard care, only 1.6 percent of those given ivermectin had to be hospitalized or died.

Fact-Checking the Fabulist in Chief's State of the Union.  During Thursday's State of the Union address, Biden fully displayed his fabulist tendencies.  His assessment of the administration's accomplishments and his impact was not anchored in reality. [...] Biden believes in freedom so much that he prolonged COVID shutdowns and tried to force a vaccine mandate on 80 million Americans through OSHA.  Then he used the bully pulpit to scapegoat unvaccinated Americans, calling COVID "a pandemic of the unvaccinated" long after it was evident the vaccine did not stop illness or transmission.

We must never again suppress democracy by giving power to power-hungry people.  It's been a year since we published the Lockdown Files message.  During this time, some government advisors have changed their minds and admitted their mistakes regarding care homes, the economy, and the harms caused by the lockdown.  However, most of them have gone into hiding or moved onto more lucrative roles. [...] The week's Lockdown files show Boris Johnson feared Britain's second lockdown because he knew the death data was 'very wrong'; he also wanted to lift the restrictions, but the public 'wasn't ready'.  They also reveal that masks in schools were introduced to avoid an argument with Nicola Sturgeon, that care homes were neglected, and the inhumane rules that kept married couples apart were discussed but, despite their devastating effects, were kept anyhow.  Why?  Because there was no one to challenge the power-hungry government machinery that was out of its depth.

UKHSA Provides Mortality Data to Big Pharma But Not to the General Public for 'Commercial Sensitivity Reasons'.  Jenny Harries became a Dame in the 2022 New Year Honours for services to health.  This was partly due to her role as Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England during the pandemic.  She went on to become the Chief Executive of the U.K. Health Security Agency (UKHSA) in 2021.  This combined Public Health England and England's NHS Test and Trace.  On Monday, Harries appeared before the Health and Social Care Committee where she was asked about the data around excess deaths.  She confirmed (around 17:15) that whilst the agency doesn't routinely share record level mortality datasets that include vaccination dates, doses and co-morbidities, it has released anonymised, aggregate data to vaccine manufacturers.  Apparently, this is for their own vaccines, to support obligations to report as part of safety surveillance.  However, Harries goes on to imply that Parliament and the public may not be able to have access to the same data provided to the vaccine manufacturers, for commercial sensitivity reasons.  ["]We have released anonymised aggregate data to manufacturers.  This is for their own vaccines to support their obligations to report to MHRA as part of the routine safety surveillance.  But these data are commercially sensitive.["]  It's good to know that data paid for by the taxpayer cannot be shared with the taxpayer.  Data about and concerning taxpayers cannot be viewed by taxpayers, even though it is anonymised.  But it has already been given to Big Pharma.

Is Graphene Oxide In Their Secret Sauce? — Part 2.  [Scroll down]  To recap[,] when graphene oxide gets into the human body, it can create thromboses, cause blood clots, disrupt the immune system, trigger a cytokine storm, instigate pneumonia, create a metallic taste in the mouth, cause inflammation of the mucous membranes, produce a loss in the sense of taste and smell, and blocks detoxification in the body by blocking glutathione, which your liver needs to detox.  The notion that the FDA (or any regulatory agent) legitimately permits the inclusion of this known poison for mass consumption is absurd.  But now, sick spin doctors who worship scientism have repositioned graphene as being good for you.  That is the name of the game with pharmaceia, which means sorcery in Greek.  A paper titled Nanotoxicity of Graphene and Graphene Oxide states that "more detailed studies are needed that aim to investigate the toxicity of graphene-based materials to properly associate the biological phenomenon with their chemical, structural, and morphological variations that result from several synthetic and processing possibilities."  Now that we've established that graphene oxide is poisonous, let's examine why they would inject this into the human body.

We're suing Springer Nature for $250 [million] in punitive damages for the unethical retraction of our COVID harms paper.  The scientific journals have been getting away with unethical retractions for decades.  They unethically retracted our paper, "COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines:  Lessons Learned from the Registrational Trials and Global Vaccination Campaign."  Here are the bogus reasons the journal gave for retraction and Peter McCullough's excellent article regarding the impact of the paper and our response to their reasons[.]  It's time for this unethical practice to stop.  I hired a private investigator and was able to get the goods on the editors of Cureus so I know for a fact the paper was unethically retracted.  It's time for the journals to be held accountable.  I'll be filing suit next week against Springer Nature and Cureus seeking $250M in punitive damages so that the journals think twice the next time they get a paper they don't like.

Federal Health Agencies and the COVID Cartel:  What Are They Hiding.  For those who can't spend 4 hours watching the full roundtable event — Federal Health Agencies and the COVID Cartel:  What Are They Hiding — here is a 14-minute edited version that captures many important points.  [Tweet with video clip]

German patient vaccinated against Covid 217 times.  A 62-year-old man from Germany has, against medical advice, been vaccinated 217 times against Covid, doctors report.  The bizarre case is documented in The Lancet Infectious Diseases journal.  The shots were bought and given privately within the space of 29 months.  The man appears to have suffered no ill effects, researchers from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg say.

Bizarre hypervaccinator from Magdeburg receives 217 Covid jabs over 29 months.  [This story] is about some lunatic from Magdeburg who claims to have gotten himself vaccinated 217 times between 3 June 2021 and 7 November 2023, at a nominal cost to the German taxpayer of around 4000 Euros.  Researchers say that there's nothing (yet) really wrong with him, and — best of all — he's never gotten Covid!  Now we know what it takes to avoid infection.  The man is an example to us all. [...] Notably, our subject began his vaccine odyssey with the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which many German municipalities reserved for the homeless in 2021. The fear was that getting these people to return for a second jab would be a hopeless project.  Our subject, therefore, is plausibly indigent, although he proved to be anything but unwilling to return for more of the magical virus juice.  Except for the AstraZeneca jab on 1 August, all of these early doses are marked "confirmed," meaning that our subject retained the vaccine certificates.

RSV Vaccines May Increase Risk of Rare Neurological Condition.  Recently approved vaccines for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) for older adults may be linked to a rare nervous system disorder that causes the body's immune system to attack its own nerves.  In a Feb. 29 meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, health officials presented data that appears to show a slightly elevated rate of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) among people who received RSV vaccines by Pfizer and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).  A data mining alert on Jan. 19 for disproportional reporting was detected by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Pfizer's Abrysvo RSV vaccine and GBS but has not been reported to date for GSK's RSV vaccine Arexvy, according to Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, deputy director of the CDC's influenza division and former director of the CDC's immunization safety office.

The COVID Gene Jab:  Inconvenient Truths.  Last fall I thought that the wall of propaganda deployed by the public-private partnership of western governments, WHO, WEF and NGO to support the COVID gene therapy technology-based "vaccines" would soon fall.  I thought that the burden of evidence that the products were neither safe nor effective was overwhelming, and that the "official" lies had become unsustainable.  Silly me.  What I overlooked and underestimated was the power of the globalized censorship-industrial complex to literally distort reality and/or substitute a false synthetic reality for truth in large numbers of minds.  For further details on how this works, I recommend the insights and documentation provided by Mike Benz and colleagues (Foundation for Freedom Online) and in particular the recent Tucker Carlson/Mike Benz interview.

The Five FUBARs.  [#5]  The CDC continues to push vaccines that have killed millions of Americans and more millions around the world, and has probably compromised the well-being of millions more going forward.  Corporate medicine — that is, your doctor, and your hospitals — is a sinking Titanic of grift and chaos.  Try to get an appointment to even see a doctor for an emergency.  Try to avoid being bankrupted by your treatment.  Try to get out of a hospital alive.  Yeah, it's that bad.  The doctors have surrendered your trust in them with their lying and their bullshit.  The current director of the CDC, Mandy Cohen and her predecessor, Rochelle Walensky, have knowingly presided over the mass killing and injuries imposed on the mRNA vaccinated.  Hundreds of their deputies should be liable for prosecution, and so should many of the other prominent characters in the Covid Saga:  Fauci, Birx, Collins, Baric, Bourla, Daszak, Califf, Woodcock, Hahn, and many more.  What are we going to do about any of this?

Scientists may have finally found the cause of long Covid.  Experts may have found the cause of long Covid after discovering that low iron levels following an infection could be a key trigger.  An estimated 1.9 million people in the UK alone say they experience symptoms of long Covid.  These can include fatigue, shortness of breath, muscle aches and problems with memory and concentration — and last long after the initial Covid infection has subsided.

COVID-19 Vaccines Can Impact Menstrual Cycle, Researchers Find.  Researchers confirmed that COVID-19 vaccines are linked to changes in the menstrual cycle, according to a study published in March.  Published in the Obstetrics & Gynecology journal on March 1, Oregon Health & Science University researchers found that women who received a COVID-19 shot in the first half of their menstrual cycle are more likely to receive cycle length changes than those who received the vaccine in the second half.  Those researchers used data from 20,000 users of a birth control app that was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to determine what effects the vaccine has on the cycle.  Most of the women whose data was analyzed were under the age of 35, while 28 percent were from North America, 33 percent were from Europe, and another 32 percent were from the United Kingdom, they said.

Fired Covid Nurse Goes Public, Exposes Mass Vaccine Deaths.  After she was fired for refusing to comply with her hospital's vaccine mandate, a California nurse has gone public to blow the whistle on a major cover-up of deaths related to Covid mRNA shots.  Gail Macrae, a California intensive care unit (ICU) nurse, is speaking out to raise the alarm that the public is being misled about the injections and the true number of Covid patients.  Macrae is accusing the hospital where she worked of violating medical ethics.  She said this violation, which she believes is happening across the country and beyond, has resulted in increased harm to patients.

Mandate for Leadership.  [Scroll down to page 449]  If the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) were a separate country, its approximately $1.6 trillion budget would rank as the world's fifth-largest national budget.  For good or ill, HHS activities personally impact the lives of more Americans than do those of any other federal agency. [...] As a result of HHS's having lost its way, U.S. life expectancy, instead of returning to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic, continued to drop precipitously to levels not seen since 1996 with white populations alone losing 7 percent of their expected life span in just one year.3 Nothing less than America's long-term survival is at stake.  Accordingly, HHS must return to serving the health and well-being of all Americans at all stages of life instead of using social engineering that leaves us sicker, poorer, and more divided.

Four Years Late, CDC Admits COVID Is Basically Like Flu.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) just quietly updated its Covid-19 guidance to tell Americans essentially to act as if the virus were the common flu.  All of us "conspiracy theorists" who said the same thing back in February 2020 would like an apology.  Ironically, the CDC's new guidance from March 1 not only recommends good hygiene and vaccination (despite evidence of the COVID vaccine's serious risks), it recommends "cleaner air" and "gathering outdoors."  Do you remember how many people obediently stayed locked inside or took their walks with masks on during the height of COVID thanks to scare tactics from government agencies such as the CDC?  Turns out the age-old tactic of getting fresh air and washing your hands really is the best protection against COVID-19.

Health Secretary urged to release data that 'may link Covid vaccine to excess deaths'.  MPs and peers have accused the Health Secretary of withholding data that could link the Covid vaccine to excess deaths, and criticised a "wall of silence" on the topic.  A cross-party group has written to Victoria Atkins to sound alarm about the "growing public and professional concerns" at the UK's rates of excess deaths since 2020[.]  Ministers have blamed the rise in excess deaths on record NHS waiting lists and the pandemic backlog.  But the parliamentarians are demanding to be shown the underlying data to support the Government's assertion that there is "no evidence" linking excess deaths to the vaccines for Covid-19.  "If those data do indeed exist, please share them; if thorough investigations have already ruled out such a link, please share the relevant reports," their letter says.  "There is no place here for blind faith."

Thousands of items of lifesaving medical equipment bought during the Covid pandemic [are] to be destroyed after the government failed to find a use for them.  The government is planning to destroy thousands of items of lifesaving medical equipment that it bought during the pandemic after failing to find a need for it, the Mail on Sunday can reveal.  MPs and Peers last night branded the scale of waste 'astonishing' and said the disposal of 'such huge volumes' is a 'kick in the teeth to the taxpayer'.  The stockpile of ventilators, patient monitors, humidifiers and syringe pumps was built up at vast expense as part of the UK's 'strategic reserve'.

More proof that COVID killed medical ethics.  A February 12, 2024 Slay article reported that thousands of elderly COVID patients in the United Kingdom (U.K.) were secretly euthanized in April 2020 by injection with the drug Midazolam.  This disturbing claim came from an investigation directed by Wilson Sy, director, Investment Analytics Research Australia, and made public by Craig Kelly, the national director of the (conservative) United Australia Party.  The alleged euthanasia claim seems unlikely because in the U.K., it is regarded as either manslaughter or murder by the National Health Service (NHS) and carries a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.  And unlike in Trudeau's Canada, even voluntary assisted suicide is illegal and punishable by up to 14 years' imprisonment.  In addition, the drug Midazolam is not for euthanasia.  It's a widely used anti-anxiety medication.  However, cautions that it is risky for patients with a cough, wheezing, or trouble breathing.  Having had a career in analytics, I was skeptical.

Yes, Covid came from a lab.  When will the mainstream media quit gaslighting us?  The Wall Street Journal just breathlessly reported that the Covid virus was manufactured in a lab.  It even hinted that the lab in question might have been — drumroll, please — the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Of course, this is not news to anyone but those who still read the mainstream media.  Those benighted souls have been kept in the dark about the origins of the recent pandemic for four long years. [...] Chinese whistleblower Dr. Yan Li-Meng, who fled China in April 2020, was the first to point out that the virus' closest cousin is a bat coronavirus originally isolated by the People's Liberation Army but tinkered with to make it much more infectious.  Those doing the gene-splicing left "signatures" behind in the genome itself, argued Dr. Steven Quay a few months later.  To boost a virus' lethality, for example, those doing gain-of-function research customarily insert a snippet of RNA that codes for two arginine amino acids.  This snippet — called double CGG — has never been found in any other coronaviruses but is present in CoV-2.

CDC ending five-day COVID isolation guidance.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is no longer recommending Americans stay home from work or school for five days after testing positive for COVID-19, a major shift in policy that comes as much of the country has moved on from the height of the pandemic.  The new guidance aligns COVID recommendations with other respiratory viral illnesses such as flu and RSV.  The simplified guidance recommends that even if they don't know what virus is causing the illness, people should stay home when they are sick and symptomatic and resume normal activities if their symptoms have been improving and they are fever-free for at least 24 hours without any medication.

Mild Myocarditis Post-Vaccination Can Result in Sudden Death, Japanese Autopsy Finds.  A new paper from pathologists in Kanazawa City, Japan reports the findings of an autopsy in a healthy 40-year-old man: [...] The most concerning aspect of this is that the myocarditis itself was "focal and mild, as is mostly observed following COVID-19 mRNA vaccination".  Yet this resulted in a fatal arrhythmia, because cells which are part of the electrical system were affected.  A secondary concern about this is that since this occurred after the second dose, it seems likely the event happened several years ago, yet has remained unpublished in the meantime.  The possibility that inflammation affecting just the conductive system might result in fatal arrhythmia is a concern that we at the Health Advisory and Recovery Team (HART) have previously raised in relation to the mRNA products.  It is to be noted that this man presented suddenly with an arrhythmia (ventricular tachycardia) which ultimately proved fatal; preceding chest pain characteristic of myocarditis was not reported.  This is consistent with our concern that subclinical myocarditis, about which we have written extensively, does indeed result in an increased risk of fatal arrhythmias, which may be responsible for most or all of the rise in ambulance callouts for cardiac arrests, which we have also written about.

Top Cardiologist Reports 47-Fold Increase in Serious Myocarditis Post Covid Vaccinations as He Calls on GMC to Investigate.  Over the last 10-15 years, I have become increasingly aware of Dr. Aseem Malhotra as a cardiologist who has made significant contributions to the field of preventive cardiology and lifestyle medicine.  His commitment to challenging conventional medical wisdom and advocating a more holistic approach to healthcare has earned him widespread respect and admiration within the medical community and beyond.  That said, he has also faced opposition over the years from critics.  He has faced these criticisms openly and encouraged debate on the science. [...] Not only is Dr. Malhotra an accomplished physician, but he is also a passionate advocate for addressing the root causes of chronic disease, particularly through lifestyle interventions and dietary modifications.  His efforts to raise awareness about the impact of excessive sugar consumption and the overuse of medications in the treatment of chronic illnesses have been instrumental in sparking important conversations about the need for a paradigm shift in healthcare.

Sen. Ron Johnson, Health Experts Allege Cover-Up of COVID-19 Vaccine Dangers.  Two weeks ago, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., got an email from a recently married man who learned his 36-year-old wife couldn't have children shortly after she got her second COVID-19 shot.  "She chose career, got the baby/family bug, and now she can't have children," the husband said in the email, which Johnson read aloud Monday at the opening of a Capitol Hill forum on government officials' transparency about COVID-19. [...] Johnson's forum — titled "Federal Health Agencies and the COVID Cartel:  What Are They Hiding?" and held in the Senate Russell Office Building — featured a roundtable discussion including 22 testimonials from scientists, medical doctors, former government officials, and journalists about what they said were problems with the vaccines and government efforts to censor the dangers.  The cover-ups involving both the origins of COVID-19 in China and adverse effects of the vaccines likely are linked to protecting the bioweapons industry, contended Dr. Harvey Risch, professor emeritus of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health and Yale School of Medicine.

Psychological and Cognitive Warfare on Citizens.  [Scroll down]  It was deemed necessary to employ this technology, this psychological and cognitive warfare technology on the general population because of the threat of SARS-CoV-2, a virus which was by modeling, we now know it highly flawed modeling, going to lead to a 3.4% case fatality rate" or infection fatality rate.  That's what we were told.  Happens to be exactly the same number that they had, quote, "modeled" during Event 201 in the fall of 2019.  We were told, and governments were told, and propagandized all over the world, particularly in the West, that this highly lethal virus was going to pose such an enormous threat that it was acceptable just like it was believed acceptable to interfere in the Italian elections after World War II, it was acceptable and necessary to deploy this kind of technology in order to advance the public good.  To ensure that we would have full compliance for the measures that the government prescribed for all of us under the advice of the World Health Organization.  Mr. Tedros now insists that he'd never told anybody they had to lock down or social distance or accept vaccines.  That this is all the governments that did this.  That was the justification.  And now we've seen the explosive growth and maturation of a whole industry, this censorship industrial complex.

Study Finds Hearing and Balance Disorders Among COVID-19 Vaccinated.  More cases of hearing and balance disorders have been observed after people received COVID-19 vaccines, according to a recent study, which asked vaccinated people to remain alert to such complications.  The Australian peer-reviewed study, published in the Vaccine journal on Feb. 22, aimed to determine whether there was an increase in "audiovestibular events" following COVID-19 vaccination in south-eastern Australia.  Audiovestibular refers to conditions related to hearing and balance disorders.  "Healthcare providers and vaccinees should be alert to potential audiovestibular complaints after COVID-19 vaccination," the authors said.

Fauci Lied & Hundreds of Thousands of Children Died due to COVID Vaccination according to Secret CDC Report.  Time and time again throughout 2021, Dr. Anthony Fauci, stood at the podium, the bright lights of the cameras blinding him as he faced the nation.  With a steady hand, he held up a vial of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, promising it would be the key to protecting America and its children from the "deadly" COVID-19 disease supposedly ravaging the country.  But little did the public know, the truth about the Covid vaccine's safety had been buried deep within Fauci's own lies and deceit and confidential U.S. Government and Pfizer documents.  Fauci used propaganda, lies and manipulation to coerce parents into getting their children vaccinated.

Study Reveals Over 134,000 Cancer Cases Went Undiagnosed During Pandemic.  More than 134,000 cancer cases in the United States went undiagnosed as people stayed home due to a nationwide lockdown during the first 10 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new study.  The cross-sectional analysis, published in JAMA Oncology on Feb. 22, found that observed rates of cancer incidence in the United States were 13 percent lower during the first 10 months of the pandemic.  "To our knowledge, this is the first study to offer a nationwide analysis using U.S. cancer registry data on the cancer case deficit experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020," the researchers wrote.  The study assessed cancer rate trends for March through December 2020 using cancer incidence data from the U.S. Cancer Statistics Public Use Database, which covers all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Bill Gates Partner GAVI Vaccine Alliance Targets Online Memes.  Bill Gates is known, and rich, for two things: as the founder of one of the most oppressive (in terms of design, security, and historically predatory toward free-as-in-freedom competing technology) companies ever — Microsoft.  And the other is Gates — now as a billionaire — reinventing himself through his "uncanny valley" philanthropic efforts, centered and emanating from his Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and focusing by and large on all sorts of vaccines, and — agriculture.  One of those involved, the GAVI Vaccine Alliance (that gets money from Gates) now wants to reframe memes — internet's succinct expression of humor and satire — as "health disinformation super-spreaders."  And we've heard this one before — this genre, that, in the digital age, might as well be considered as any other artistic format in previous times, is said to be capable of evading "fact checkers and content moderators" (i.e., censors).  In previous eras and authoritarian states, that would get the books with imagery and words characteristic of memes banned or burned.

Furman football player's death was unrelated to practice, university says.  The sudden death of a Furman University football player in early February after he collapsed during a team workout was unrelated to football, the university told The Post and Courier.  Bryce Stanfield, a 21-year-old junior defensive lineman, died Feb. 9 after he collapsed during a morning workout at Paladin Stadium two days prior.  An autopsy concluded Stanfield's cause of death was a pulmonary embolism, unrelated to football, Furman spokesman Clinton Colmenares said.

Constitutional rights crushed as lockdown protester found guilty of violating COVID-19 stay-at-home order.  An Ontario man challenging harshly imposed COVID-19-related lockdown restrictions since 2020 has been found guilty nearly three years later.  Graham Walker's alleged crime is peacefully assembling, protesting, and distributing press materials in front of Cobourg's Victoria Hall, at a time when Premier Doug Ford had declared a third state of emergency and stay-at-home order since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.  [Tweet]

Florida Nurses Now Mandated To Take The FLU Shot To Remain Employed?  We live in an age of Open Warfare on Humanity where corporations and governments dare not be trusted to protect you.  Nicole King is a courageous and well spoken registered nurse in the area of central Florida who complains the Big Pharma continues to find ways to force risky medications on health workers while restricting their first amendment rights to speak out.  A mandate to take the flu shot could be a signal that the injection could be contaminated with MRNA technology just like the Covid bioweapon injection.  This is why we need to promote the truth that viruses have never been proven to exist.  This is the most effective way to cut the head off the Rockefeller snake-head of deception and murder by Allopathic medicine.

Child Mask Mandates.  It's fair to say that mask mandates in children were controversial.  They were mandatory in schools across several European countries and German states for the entire 2020-2021 school year until autumn 2021.  In the UK, secondary school children were required to wear masks only in communal areas, while primary school children were not required to mask up.  So, what does the evidence now say?  A recent systematic review on child mask mandates for COVID-19 concluded that "real-world effectiveness of child mask mandates against SARS-CoV-2 transmission or infection has not been demonstrated with high-quality evidence.  The current body of scientific data does not support masking children for protection against COVID-19."  The review screened included 22 studies in the final analysis; none were randomised controlled trials.  All six observational studies reported an association between child masking and lower infection rates and critical or serious risk of biases.  Sixteen other observational studies found no association between mask-wearing and infection or transmission.

ABC to Face Lawsuit from 'General Hospital' Crewmembers Fired for Refusing COVID Vaccine.  In a setback to Disney, a judge has ruled that ABC must go to court over a lawsuit filed by two General Hospital crewmembers who were fired for refusing to comply with the studio's COVID vaccine mandate.  A Los Angeles Superior Court judge issued the order on Tuesday, signaling a potentially important legal showdown that could impact numerous Americans who stood up to draconian employer and government mandates — and consequently lost their jobs or were denied services.  Plaintiffs James and Timothy Wahl, who are father and son, have argued that ABC should have given them religious exemptions from the vaccine due to their Christian beliefs and allowed them to continue working on General Hospital.

Why the public continues to lose faith [in] the medical community.  An op-ed today in the New York Post tried to explain why the medical and health community lost the confidence of so much of the public after the COVID epidemic.  According to Marc Siegal, a doctor and news pundit (or as described in his bio line at the end of the essay, "a clinical professor of medicine and medical director of Doctor Radio at NYU Langone Health and a Fox News medical analyst"), the distrust was caused by the effort of the Biden administration to force the COVID jab on everyone through mandates while squelching any dissent or discussions of potential risks.  To Siegal, this effort to make believe the jab carried no risks at all was seen from the start as a lie, and has since been proven so.  Better to have been honest from the start, Siegal says, so that patients could make up their own minds with all the facts in hand.  The way Siegal couches his language in his op-ed, however, only increases this distrust. [...] He repeatedly minimizes the risks from the jab, even though the very risks he describes, while rare, are so serious and life-threatening that they make getting the jab a very bad idea, ever.

[Some of the] News MSM Chose to Not Report.  (Congressional press release)  The Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic held a hearing titled "Assessing America's Vaccine Safety Systems, Part 1" to examine the effectiveness of vaccine safety reporting and injury compensation systems following the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine. [...] [Video clip]  My take on this hearing:  Progress in breaking through to Congress is happening.  It is slow, they still aren't completely getting the level of corruption, censorship, psywar and regulatory capture.  But last week's hearing was a start.  This committee is investigating this issue due to people like you and me contacting their representatives about vaccine injury and the cover-up.

Florida Grand Jury Finds Average Citizens Aren't Buying "Follow the Science" Propaganda on Masks and Social Distancing.  There have been several lawsuits about the pandemic, and the UK has an ongoing COVID inquiry which I reported about briefly, but this grand jury in Florida has been mostly ignored.  The Florida Supreme Court empaneled a statewide grand jury on December 22, 2022, to determine if pharma companies engaged in criminal activity during the development, approval, or marketing of the COVID-19 vaccines.  The jurors come from across the state of Florida, from all backgrounds, ages, levels of education, and political affiliation.  Starting last June, the Grand Jury began eliciting sworn testimony from a range of expert and lay witnesses on pharma and other issues related to the COVID pandemic.  Federal agencies involved in the pandemic — the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the US Army — have all declined to participate.  Grand Juries have the power to indict people or organizations for criminal activity and to release presentments to inform the public and raise awareness.  Their first presentment runs 33 pages, which I picked through and read their findings on masks and social distancing.

The Failure of Science Is Worse Than You Think.  [Scroll down]  Then 2020 happened.  Suddenly the entire game plan on pandemics completely flipped.  All known wisdom was tossed out.  The elites blabbed to the world that they just have no idea how it spreads even though it was clearly a coronavirus.  They didn't know the latency period even though that has been known for many decades.  They didn't know any therapeutics even though Nobel Prizes have been given for them and there were a dozen off-patent drugs available.  Then they started making up insane things.  The virus could be on your grocery bags!  It is floating around in rooms without people!  You have to wash and sanitize your hands 17 times a day!  You need to install all kinds of air filter systems immediately!  Put up Plexiglas everywhere!  Better yet, just stay put.  Sit on your sofa and be as still as possible.  Don't move a muscle, then you might not get sick.  Finally, they said they had a magic potion that would fix the problem.  It's a new thing, a gene therapy that comes wrapped in little capsules that we inject into your skin.  It's been tested as 95 percent effective, and you know that's true because it is a number with a percent.  There are no side effects even though there was no way they could know that regardless.

US Vaccine Injury Compensation Program Has 10-Year Backlog of Claims.  It may take more than 10 years for someone injured by a COVID-19 vaccine to receive a decision on whether their claim is eligible for compensation by the government's vaccine compensation program — if they receive a response at all.  U.S. health officials responded to questions on America's failing vaccine injury compensation system in a hearing that left the vaccine-injured feeling like addressing the system's shortcomings is not a priority on Capitol Hill.  As of Jan. 1, there were 12,854 claims filed for injuries caused by COVID-19 countermeasures with the government's Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), including 9,600 related to injuries caused by COVID-19 vaccines.  Of the 12,854 claims, 2,214 have been processed, but only 40 claims have been found eligible for compensation.

Bias alert!  This article comes from left-wing Bloomberg, promulgated by left-wing Microsoft:
Largest Covid Vaccine Study Yet Finds Links to Health Conditions.  Vaccines that protect against severe illness, death and lingering long Covid symptoms from a coronavirus infection were linked to small increases in neurological, blood, and heart-related conditions in the largest global vaccine safety study to date.  The rare events — identified early in the pandemic — included a higher risk of heart-related inflammation from mRNA shots made by Pfizer Inc., BioNTech SE, and Moderna Inc., and an increased risk of a type of blood clot in the brain after immunization with viral-vector vaccines such as the one developed by the University of Oxford and made by AstraZeneca Plc.  The viral-vector jabs were also tied to an increased risk of Guillain-Barre syndrome, a neurological disorder in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the peripheral nervous system.

French government prepared to arrest those who reject 'medical knowledge'.  After some deliberations, on February 14 the French government and National Assembly managed to pass a bill that includes an Article 4 that essentially creates a new crime of "provocation to abstention from medical care." [...] Imagine being arrested for following your conscience and medical advice from a doctor that you trust and yet going to prison for it because it contradicts the "medical knowledge" of your government.  With this bill as it stands today, what will happen to those doctors and scientists in France who still oppose the mRNA injection?  I recall that what was deemed "medical knowledge" by the ministers of science in the CDC, FDH and NIH included the absurd notion that the jabs were safe and effective.  I recall deaths being caused directly by the vaccines, ventilators, remdesivir, and refusing early treatment.  I also recall permanent disability and infertility due to "vaccine" injury as well as diseases like myocarditis, Bell's Palsy, among others.  In fact, there are many confirmed reasons why the "state of medical knowledge" — as promoted by the government — might not be in our best interest.

Opposition to mRNA injections now considered a CRIME in France.  The French government just passed a law to fine and imprison people for refusing to get injected with mRNA (modRNA) "vaccines."  All opposition to mRNA-LNP (lipid nanoparticles) injections in France is now considered to be "sectarian aberration."  Violations carry with them a penalty of 45,000 euros and up to three years imprisonment.  "It will not tolerate any criticism of the therapeutic treatments which will be recommended or made obligatory by the state," tweeted Dr. Kat Lindley.  "Any person who dares to openly criticize these therapies will be liable to fines and imprisonment."

Our paper critical of the COVID vaccines will be retracted by Cureus!  The paper I co-authored with 6 other authors will be retracted by the journal because the publisher won't allow any paper that is counter-narrative to be published.  So our paper has to be retracted. [...] It doesn't do any good to show them these reasons are all bogus.  The laundry list of items is simply a placeholder to make it look like the journal is following the science.  Nothing we can say on appeal will make any difference.  The decision was made to retract the paper and facts don't matter.  It's about supporting the narrative.  When they write "in our view can't be remedied with a correction" it means "don't even bother arguing with us, your paper is retracted."

CDC Warns CDC's Own Scientists That Their Finding on Masks "Is Not Scientifically Correct".  In a congressional hearing last November on restoring trust in science, CDC Director Mandy Cohen kept evading questions on whether she would bring back mask mandates for toddlers.  "We have a lot of different tools to protect our children," Dr. Cohen said during her cagey response.  Six days later, a BMJ journal published a study that found "mask recommendations for children are not supported by scientific evidence."

No doubt about it: the COVID vaccines CAUSE dementia.  This is a query over all vaccines in VAERS for the last 30 years.  It took me about 10 seconds to do this query:  [ILlustration, not shown here]  The results are self-explanatory: the COVID vaccines cause dementia.  Anyone who tells you "correlation isn't causation" should explain the actual cause of this if it wasn't the COVID vaccine.  I can't get a debate on this with anyone.  They just don't want to talk about it.  The mainstream media is just never going to cover it.

Ivermectin Squares Off in a New War on Cancer.  With this article, I begin what I hope will be a series of reports on the use of inexpensive generic drugs for the treatment of cancer.  In one of the few good things to come out of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, a growing number of physicians who pioneered effective early treatments for Covid-19 is now attempting to learn if safe, off-patent drugs can also work for cancer.  So far, results are promising for drugs like ivermectin, mebendazole, and metformin, and supplements like melatonin.

CDC to drop five-day COVID isolation guidelines:  Report.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reportedly issuing new guidance that would drop the five-day isolation guidelines for Americans who test positive for COVID-19.  The CDC currently recommends Americans stay home from work and school for at least five days if they test positive for COVID. The federal health agency is expected to announce in April that people can end their isolation if they are experiencing mild symptoms and are fever-free without the aid of medication for at least 24 hours, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.  The planned recommendation, which is the first update from the CDC on the matter since 2021, comes after Oregon and California issued similar guidelines.  The proposed guidelines would treat COVID similarly to the flu and RSV.

Vaccinated People Can Still Transmit Disease, FDA and CDC Officials Admit.  Public health officials from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) admitted that people vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine can still get COVID and can transmit COVID at a Feb. 15 congressional hearing.  At the hearing by the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, Rep. Michael Cloud (R-Texas) asked if the vaccine prevented people from transmitting the virus.  "There's data that shows that earlier in the pandemic there was some reduction in transmission.  The data on that are very challenging to pin down.  It does not absolutely prevent transmission," said Dr. Peter Marks, one of the hearing witnesses and the director of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research at the FDA.

COVID Vaccine Shedding Is 'Real,' FDA and Pfizer Documents Are Proof:  Clinicians.  The topic of COVID-19 vaccine shedding has long been controversial, but now, some doctors say it is real.  "Shedding is unfortunately real," said Dr. Pierre Kory at the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) conference in Phoenix, Arizona, in early February.  "The FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) knows that."  Dr. Kory is a co-founder of the FLCCC, a non-profit advocacy group founded by physicians for the treatment of COVID-19, long COVID, and postvaccine syndromes.  He is also the co-founder of the Leading Edge Clinic and has treated over a thousand long-COVID and postvaccine patients.  Fact-checkers have largely denied shedding on the basis of definition.  The commonly cited definition comes from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, which defines shedding as the release of viruses, bacteria, and their components from live vaccines.

From Censorship To Criminalizing Dissent.  A major battle is brewing throughout the Western world over the basic principle of free speech.  Is it going to be protected by law?  It's not entirely clear what the outcome will be.  We seem to be on the precipice of a potential calamity if the courts don't decide the right way.  Even if we squeak out a victory, the question is already in play.  Our free speech rights have never been more fragile.  Turn your attention to France right now.  In the dead of night, a new law slipped through the General Assembly that would make it a crime to criticize mRNA shots.  Critics call it the Pfizer law.  It calls for fines up to 45,000 euros and possibly three years in prison for debunking an approved medical treatment.  Like all Western nations, criticism of the mRNA platform has already been subjected to vast social-media censorship.  Even given this, there has been a major and global consumer turn against these shots.  People are not convinced that they are necessary, safe, or effective.  Still, government imposed mandates for everyone, billions of people worldwide.  This was a form of conscription that has driven a deep divide between the rulers and the ruled.  Rather than back down, however, governments, which have been captured by pharmaceutical interests, are going to bat for the companies and the technology to threaten imprisonment of anyone who speaks out openly against them.  Here is where censorship becomes severely weaponized.  It's the next logical step.

Did the French National Assembly Pass a "Pfizer Article" Criminalising Criticism of the mRNA Vaccines?  For a few days now, the internet has been telling me that the French National Assembly passed a law making "any criticism of [the] mRNA platform punishable with up to 3 years imprisonment and 45,000 euros."  As is often the case, the reports beneath these headlines were slightly less sensational.  There, one typically reads that the law targets not mere criticism of the mRNA jabs, but explicit advice against vaccination.  That may not sound like a big difference, but details always matter.  I have now read both the law itself and many reports from the French press about its origins and the controversies attending it.  I can report that it is indeed bad, but perhaps not quite as terrible as some have claimed.

What Can a MS Charity Teach Us About Medical Propaganda?  One of the things I feel is the least appreciated about the PR industry is how effective it is — as everyone believes they are immune to it, but I've lost count of how many people I know who have said that but then clearly fallen for a PR campaign.  For example, I believe the campaign used to sell the COVID-19 vaccine to the public was the most aggressive PR campaign I have witnessed in my lifetime.  In turn, I observed many people you would have never expected to vaccinate get the shot (and often the booster).  This included:
  •   A colleague who specialized in treating vaccine injured children and had publicly stated multiple times that they felt that it was a grave injustice the government was lying about the very real injuries which follow vaccination.
  •   Parents of vaccine injured children who have fought for years to get federal recognition of their injury and have campaigned against mandatory vaccination laws.
  •   100% organic individuals who would never consume a pharmaceutical or eat genetically modified foods.
  •   World experts on propaganda who could explain how the PR industry lies to people and manufactures consent (e.g., Noam Chomsky).
Note: many of the above people subsequently developed significant injuries from their COVID-19 vaccination, but only about half of them were willing to admit it was due to the vaccine.  There's a lot of ways to take this, but I just view it as an illustration of just how effective propaganda can be.

COVID mask suppliers sue feds for $5.4 billion over 'misleading' promise to purchase equipment.  Ottawa is being sued a whopping $5.4 billion for 'misleading' suppliers on a promise to purchase equipment during the COVID pandemic.  According to the Canadian Association of PPE Manufacturers (CAPPEM), the federal government is guilty of "negligent misrepresentation."  CAPPEM President Barry Hunt told The National Post his members "feel shafted" by the unrealized federal contracts for personal protective equipment (PPE).  It cost 15 small to medium-sized businesses billions in foregone revenue and failed investments, reads a statement of claim obtained by the publication.

The Feminization of America.  We are witnessing a new rise of authoritarianism in opposition to freedom.  Men do not want to be ruled.  Look at the national submission to COVID mandates:  this was a pure feminine reaction favoring security.  We are on the brink of total submission to authority.  "Please, keep me safe!  That's all I ask!"  We the People, men pointedly, meekly allowed ourselves to submit to loss of freedom imposed by a vastly overreaching government.  We consented to be so governed.

Why did behavioural scientists crave mask mandates?  There is widespread recognition that the UK Covid-19 Inquiry will be the most expensive pantomime of all time.  With a focus on the juvenile bickering of a few high-profile actors, and a failure to evaluate the legitimacy of imposing non-evidenced, and pervasively harmful, "pandemic" restrictions on the populace, it is shaping up to be forever known as a multi-million-pound whitewash to protect the dominant lockdown-and-jab Covid narrative.  Nonetheless, if one has the time — and sufficient masochistic inclination — to sift through the details of the transcripts and witness statements of those presenting evidence to the Inquiry, new discoveries can be made regarding the individuals primarily responsible for the craziness seen throughout the Covid event.

Five Dirty, Career-Ending, Prison-Warranting Secrets Biden Wants You to Forget Before Election Day.  [#5]  COVID-19 tyranny:  The lefty media, which, according to RFK, Jr., Vladimir Putin, and the Church Committee Report on Foreign and Military Intelligence of 1976, (page 455) is dominated by the CIA, performed its greatest magic trick when it made Americans somehow forget about Joe Biden's COVID tsarism.  Many Americans were forced to bend their knees and raise their sleeves for a COVID clot shot that was not only marginally effective at best but would go on to make many people sick.  We were told to stay home, give up our incomes, wear feckless Fauci face diapers, stand on science-free "social distancing" stickers, and report on our neighbors who dared not cave into COVID totalinarism.  The only thing more egregious than the unconstitutionality of these maneuvers is how quickly voters forgot about them.  Americans would go on to re-elect many of the worst offenders, including Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-Mich.).  Biden's DOJ would eventually decide not to prosecute New York's former governor Andrew Cuomo, who single-handedly killed almost 15,000 elderly people by sending COVID patients back into nursing homes.

Physicians Urge Congress to Pull the COVID Shots.  Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) held a hearing on the injuries associated with the COVID-19 shots over the past three years, on January 12.  Johnson, and Reps.  Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Warren Davidson (R-OH), and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) discussed the systems, agencies, and individuals responsible for the flawed national response to COVID-19 and subsequent rollout of high-risk emergency use inoculations.  The two-hour session included testimony by Peter McCullough, M.D., an internist and cardiologist, Ryan Cole, M.D., a clinical pathologist, and Kirk Milhoan, M.D., a pediatric cardiologist.  The three expert witnesses called for the immediate removal of the COVID-19 shots from the market, citing dozens of studies, clinical experience, and international papers showing the danger and longevity of bioengineered mRNA in the human body.

Florida Grand Jury Finds COVID Response Likely Did More Harm than Good.  We don't have details on any criminal activity by big pharma yet, but don't be surprised if further reports find a connection.  The most recent release tells us that based on the Grand Jury Investigation, most, if not all, of the things you've been saying, reporting, or sharing about masks, distancing, lockdowns, and hospitalization are true.  We knew you knew, and we also know the folks clinging bitterly to their non-pharmaceutical interventions will say something like, this is from Florida, so it doesn't matter.  It does.

Furman Player Bryce Stanfield, 21, Dies After Collapsing at Practice.  Furman defensive tackle Bryce Stanfield collapsed on the field during a workout Wednesday morning in what is described as a "medical emergency."  The 21-year-old was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support.  He died on Friday, surrounded by friends and family.  After his death, Furman President Dr. Elizabeth Davis conferred his Bachelor of Science degree in health sciences.

MRNA COVID-19 Vaccines Killed More People Than They Saved.  With considerably lower efficacy rates, mRNA COVID-19 vaccines caused more deaths than the number of lives they saved, according to a new study whose researchers called for a "global moratorium" on the shots and their "immediate removal" from the childhood immunization schedule.  The peer-reviewed study, published in the journal Cureus on Jan. 24, analyzed reports from the initial phase 3 trials of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 mRNA vaccines.  These trials led to the shots being approved under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) in the United States.  The study also looked into several other research and reviews of the trials.  It found that the vaccines had "dramatically lower" efficacy rates than the vaccine companies claimed.  Moreover, based on "conservative assumptions, the estimated harms of the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines greatly outweigh the rewards: for every life saved, there were nearly 14 times more deaths caused by the modified mRNA injections," the study authors said.

Respect for Authorities 'Died Suddenly'.  "Died suddenly" might just become the catchall epithet (or maybe epitaph) for our age.  Right now the medical community continues to destroy what's left of its reputation by refusing to connect the dots between increased rates of cancer and heart disease and the global rollout of the mostly mandated pharmaceutical injections not only falsely touted as cures to COVID, but also falsely labeled as "vaccines."  Every time a fourteen-year-old athlete "dies suddenly" on the gridiron or basketball court, the ethically compromised killers in white coats throw out all kinds of ludicrous explanations for why healthy young people are losing their lives.  It was stress!  It was red meat!  It was racism!  Or the increasingly ubiquitous it must have been climate change!  It's funny, if not disturbing, to see all the people who changed their first name to "Doctor" struggle to reach the most obvious conclusion: that an experimental mRNA serum rushed to market without necessary testing or proper scrutiny might be to blame.

Hundreds of embalmers are now speaking up about strange, fibrous blood clots in corpses.  In the middle of 2021, embalmers started to pull fibrous, white blood clots from corpses.  Some of the embalmers preserved a few of these clots and spoke about their findings on independent films and independent media channels.  This phenomenon coincided with the rollout of the experimental covid-19 vaccines.  These injections were already causing heart inflammation, blood clots and vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia, but nothing like this had ever been seen before.  Ever since the news broke out about the strange blood clots, an Air Force Major named Thomas Haviland has been investigating.  He surveyed embalmers around the world to learn more about this abhorrent reality.  The survey reached 269 embalmers spanning four major countries and three continents.  The survey asked about the type of blood clots being observed, the percentage of bodies with fibrous masses and the ages of the deceased.

Pfizer's Pfrankenstein Proteins were injected into billions of people.  Pfizer's mRNA covid-19 injections instruct cells to produce additional "off-target" proteins that could pose significant health risks.  The finding was revealed by a team of UK researchers, who found a "glitch" occurred due to the way the covid-19 injections were genetically modified.  According to the study, off-target cellular immune responses occur in 25% to 33% of those who have received Pfizer's covid-19 injection.  The "Pfrankenstein" proteins could potentially lead to health problems, including autoimmune conditions or endocrine disruption.

Forcing People Into Comas One Ventilator At A Time.  As early as March 2020, I was raising suspicion of this Ventilator Madness.  Did people realize that they force you into a coma, using a miasma of swirling sedatives before a tube is shoved down your throat and you go unconscious?  Strong drugs are used because the gag reflex is that strong.  My intuition screamed "No."  And not because the newly adopted protocol is [very] creepy.  When I looked into it, I learned about Ventilator-associated Pneumonia (VAP).  [Indeed], the most common side effect of ventilators is Pneumonia.  Investigative Journalist Jon Rappaport also pointed that out.  Recall, that the initial cases were dubbed "unidentified pneumonia" and then "COVID-19 pneumonia." [...] Additionally, cardiac arrest is also a risk, and mismanagement makes things worse.  Meaning, you need to know how to calibrate the ventilators.  Eight out of 10 people die.  And yet despite the stats, the CDC suspended all antivirals and opted for ventilator support.

Florida Grand Jury Report Vindicates 5 Spot-On Covid Claims You Weren't Allowed To Say.  Following months of fact-gathering, a Florida grand jury released its first interim report on Friday regarding its investigation into potential "wrongdoing" by Covid vaccine manufacturers and entities who promoted the shots. [...] [#1] [It is] 'Highly Likely' Covid Hospitalization Numbers Were Inflated.  Throughout the pandemic, many Americans suspected hospitals and federal agencies were misreporting Covid hospitalization numbers by neglecting to specify which patients were hospitalized because of Covid and those who had contracted Covid but were admitted due to another medical issue.  According to the Florida grand jury, it's "highly likely" these numbers were inflated.  The body noted how the CARES Act passed by Congress and signed by President Trump "created financial subsidies for Medicare and Medicaid patients with COVID-19 that were treated at hospitals and other medical facilities."  While such funds assisted these facilities in keeping their doors open during the Covid panic, they created "incentives to report more than just hospitalizations for COVID-19 disease."

Mom sues hospital after daughter died from forced ventilator, Remdesivir treatment for COVID.  The mother of a Michigan woman who was given Remdesivir and died after being forced onto a ventilator is raising funds for a wrongful death lawsuit.  Julie Schlipp is seeking "Justice for Jessica," her daughter who passed away at Trinity Health Hospital in Grand Rapids.  Jessica, whose last name was Hallgren, died in December 2021 from kidney failure, a collapsed lung, multiple strokes, and brain hemorrhaging 10 days after delivering her 29-week-old baby Margaret via C-section.  LifeSite documented her harrowing tale at the time.

Biden White House Pressured Amazon to Censor Vaccine-Skeptical Books, Internal Emails Reveal.  In early 2021, the Biden White House sent a series of emails to Amazon pressuring the online retailer to suppress the distribution of books that cast vaccines in a negative light.  The administration was ultimately successful in its efforts:  Amazon began limiting the visibility of titles that cast doubt on vaccine efficacy soon after hearing from the White House.  The internal Amazon emails, provided to the House Judiciary Committee in response to a subpoena, reveal that White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response Andrew Slavitt concluded that the retail giant was trafficking in "misinformation" after conducting a cursory search on the topic of vaccines.  "Who can we talk to about the high levels of propaganda and misinformation and disinformation of [sic] Amazon?" Slavitt asked an Amazon representative in an email dated March 2, 2021.  "If you search for 'vaccines' under books, I see what comes up," Slavitt wrote in a follow-up email.  "I haven't looked beyond that but if that's what's on the surface, it's concerning."

Mainstream science mulls 'global moratorium' on COVID vaccines as cancers rise, boosters flub.  Calling for governments to enact a "global moratorium" on COVID-19 mRNA vaccines could have been a death sentence for a scientist's career not long ago.  Now it opens the door to a prestigious science publisher.  The Springer Nature medical journal Cureus, sibling to Nature and Scientific American, published a peer-reviewed paper by high-profile mRNA vaccine critics last month, showing the growing mainstream openness to data and arguments once nitpicked if not ignored by publishers and suppressed by academia and Big Tech.  The feds have struggled to keep interest high in each new formulation of the COVID vaccines, with fewer than 12% of minors, 22% of adults and just 41% of those 65 and up taking the 2023-2024 vaccines, according to the latest weekly National Immunization Survey.

Amazon Bowed to White House Pressure to Suppress Books Skeptical of COVID-19 Vaccines.  Amazon yielded to pressure from President Joe Biden's White House to suppress books that opposed COVID-19 vaccines, according to documents reviewed by The Daily Signal.  The House Judiciary Committee obtained the emails, which demonstrate the White House's pressure on Amazon to suppress "anti-vax books" and the company's decision to take action against the books.  Amazon employees strategized for a meeting with the White House on March 9, 2021, openly asking whether the administration wanted the retailer to remove books from its catalog.

States Recently Threw Out Millions of Dollars of Unused Masks and Other Pandemic Gear.  Recently, the Associated Press published an investigative report [which] detailed the extraordinary sums of money lost as states threw away or held fire sales on tens-of-millions of dollars worth of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that they had purchased during the pandemic but no longer need.  Ohio vaporized $29 million of taxpayer money; Maryland $93 million.  The AP report was reprinted or covered by media around the country, from major national outlets, including NPR and PBS, to innumerable local news operations from New York to California.  At first, this may seem like a story of government waste, albeit waste that was the result of well-intentioned over-purchasing during an emergency.  But a brief investigation suggests that much of this equipment did not need to be discarded.  And the fact that authorities, and their advisors, operated without even a modicum of due diligence is indicative of a pervasive problem with the public health establishment.  You may wonder why the states don't simply hold on to these materials, such as masks and gowns, in case they are needed in the future.  The answer, we are told, is that much PPE has a limited shelf life and is not considered or guaranteed to be effective after its expiration date.  For this reason, South Carolina dumped 650,000 expired masks.

What part of a paper mask "expires" after a few years, so that one day it's beneficial, and the next day it's worthless?

More Than 10 Policemen Have "Died Suddenly" In Italy.  Since this nightmare started just over three years ago, we've been noticing that more and more people have "died suddenly" not singly but collectively.  Last year, for instance, some 15 Jamaican schoolteachers dropped dead within the same few months (more black lives that don't matter, since it was the "vaccines," not white cops, that had taken them); and, on the basis of our recent compilations, Jen Young, a staunch subscriber, commented on the recent spike in people "dying suddenly" in pairs: [...] And just today, one of our researchers sent this piece from the news site, on a recent spike in "sudden deaths" among Italy's policemen — a piece that actually mentions "vaccination" as a possible (or likely) factor.  Now, how long can this go on?

The Truth About the COVID Vaccine Is Finally Becoming Known.  It only took four years, the courage of a handful of independent medical experts who risked their careers by contradicting the federal government, the mainstream media, and the medical establishment, and the fact that something resembling the free press remains viable in this country, thanks largely to the internet.  Now, finally, the truth about the COVID-19 vaccine is beginning to be made known to the public.  It confirms the many previous warnings [...] It's a research paper entitled "COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines:  Lessons Learned from the Registrational Trials and Global Vaccination Campaign" that appeared on the internet at the Cureus Journal of Medical Science.  The abstract bears your close reading and then re-reading, especially if you are one of the millions of Americans who did what public health gurus like Dr. Anthony Fauci incessantly told us to do and "followed the science."

The news ad spending from pharma is a public relations lobbying tactic.  Suspicions confirmed.  Former Pharma insider tells Tucker Carlson that the true goal of pharma ads on TV is not to sell drugs but to BUY OFF the news media.  This is described as an "open secret" within the pharmaceutical industry.  [Video clip]

Teen Basketball Player Dies After Collapsing on Court During High School Game.  A 14-year-old basketball player died suddenly on the court during an Illinois high school game, according to reports.  Amari Crite, a freshman at Momence High School in Momence, Illinois, was playing in a junior varsity basketball game when she was stricken on Jan. 25, Fox News reported.  The cause of the girl's death is still under investigation, according to the Kankakee County Coroner's Office.

COVID: the vaccine that wasn't, and the truth.  Americans have lost faith in our health establishment.  They're now absolutely science deniers, if the "science" is being mandated by the CDC, NIH, or people like Anthony Fauci, who recently admitted that six foot social distancing just sort of appeared as if by magic.  Despite being science itself, Fauci finally coughed up the reality there was no actual science involved.  Despite long ago learning the various Covid vaccines aren't vaccines — they don't prevent contracting or transmitting the disease — and can cause side effects like death, the health mafia continues to claim its essential everyone get a never-ending series of ineffective and dangerous vaccines and boosters.

Tracy Beanz Breaks Down Shocking Highlights from Florida Grand Jury COVID Accountability Report.  Oh, this could get really good.  Finally, some accountability for all the COVID lies and deception.  [Numerous tweets]

4 Years Later:  Never forget what they did to us.  While it was initially advertised as the "pandemic of the century," it quickly became clear to level-headed observers that there wasn't in fact anything to worry about. [...] When everyone else was hiding in their homes, begging some degenerate politician to protect them via authoritarian "protective measures," we were laughing at the stupidity of it all while simultaneously infuriated by the idiocy and naïveté.  Statistically speaking, it was indeed just another Flu season, but it was accompanied by endless streams of fearmongering propaganda, infused with purposeful mayhem.  While we can debate whether the crisis was manufactured or organic, the people in charge decided to heed Rahm Emmanuel's famous words:  "never let a crisis go to waste."  The global ruling class weaponized "the pandemic" to loot their respective treasuries and to launch the fastest roll up of power in human history.  Hundreds of millions of lives and livelihoods were destroyed, and a virus had nothing to do with it.  This brings us to the continuing question of "pandemic amnesty."

The mask maniacs rave on.  IN December 2023 the World Health Organization, ever convinced that humanity is at imminent risk of being wiped out by a pandemic, issued a document entitled 'Infection prevention and control in the context of COVID-19: a guideline', all 209 pages of it.  Everything is contained therein, from screening and masks to the disposal of bodies.  I was not inclined to read it or anything about it until I was alerted this week in Global Health Now, which contains the daily outpourings of the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, to some criticism of the WHO guidelines.  But it was not about how unnecessary or potentially draconian they are.  Au contraire, they do not go far enough, according to 'some experts', who are reported in the CIDRAP (Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy) newsletter from the University of Minnesota last week.

The Black Swan Events That Could Determine This Election.  The globalist elite got what it wanted out of COVID, and there's no reason to believe that it won't turn another relatively minor virus into a huge power and wealth grab like it did the last time.  But normal people aren't playing that anymore.  The only people wearing masks now are freaky weirdos.  No one wants the vaxx.  No one trusts the institutions, and Americans are angry at their lies.  But a pandemic panic could happen again because there are benefits for the left.  They changed election laws because of a glorified cold, which helped Crusty squeak through.  They may try it again.  But will it work?  Or will people rebel and support Trump even though his record on COVID is far from outstanding?

Devi Sridhar's Knowledge of the Epidemiology of Respiratory Viruses Could be Written on the Back of a Postage Stamp.  Our post, 'The Time Has Come to Get Rid of the Whole Lot of Them', has generated some powerful emotions.  The Hallett Inquiry Module 2a continues to unveil cancel cultures and other conduct unbecoming of public servants.  We normally don't name individuals (we made an exception for Hancock) as it does little to foster debate.  But the goings-on of one 'expert' giving evidence, identified as a canceller-contortionist, is worthy of our attention.  Canceller-contortionists are people with no background in respiratory virus epidemiology or evidence analysis who vomited forth idiotic theories like 'zero-Covid' and then tried to cancel or pretend they never uttered such nonsense.

Moving to Red America.  It's instructive to observe where Americans are moving, and where they are leaving.  Such comparisons are particularly revealing when made during, or immediately following, a crisis, such as the recent Covid-19 pandemic. [...] These results provide further evidence of the unpopularity of authoritarian Covid-19 mandates.  Of the three large and three small states that had the most net domestic migration as a percentage of their populations, Florida, Arizona, Tennessee, and Idaho were among the ten states that never imposed mask mandates.  South Carolina and Montana had among the shortest-lived mandates — less than half as long as California's.  Among the losers, Hawaii had the nation's longest mask mandate (704 days) and required high school athletes to get the experimental Covid-19 vaccines or quit playing.  California was the first state to lock down — and it, New York, and Illinois were among the eight states with the longest mask mandates, and also among the relatively small number of states that imposed vaccine mandates.  Louisiana was among the roughly one-third of states that required people to mask up for more than 365 days; it also let its school mask mandate stretch into 2022, and initially announced that children who didn't receive a Covid-19 vaccine would be barred from attending school (it later changed course).  The remaining state, Alaska, was the only one to have adopted more lenient Covid-19 policies than most states.  Clear political patterns can be identified in these results.

Fauci 'I don't recall' rerun?  HHS official stumped by COVID subcommittee oversight questions.  The Department of Health and Human Services is like a child who steals a cookie and, when asked if he stole it, answers "I know there used to be a cookie there."  The chairman of the House's Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic used that analogy to describe a top agency official's explanation at a hearing Wednesday for allegedly "stonewalling" document requests for nearly a year by the chamber's GOP majority.  Assistant Secretary for Legislation Melanie Egorin showed up at the committee's hearing after HHS canceled her scheduled Sept. 28 transcribed interview the day before, claiming she had COVID-19, according to the Nov. 2 subpoena from Chairman Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio.  Egorin repeatedly claimed her staff "responded" or had been "responsive" to GOP demands to see its materials on COVID origins, the science behind vaccine policies and school reopening discussions.

Government Overreach during Covid Contributed to 'Pandemic Chaos,' Scathing Report Finds.  Poor communication and a refusal to adapt to evolving scientific evidence led to unnecessary school closures and the restriction of outdoor activity during the Covid outbreak, contributing to the "pandemic chaos" that plagued the country for more than two years, a scathing report published Monday revealed.  The report, "Pandemic lessons for the 2024 presidential election," was published in the British Medical Journal and draws on a breadth of scientific studies to assess the policy failures that led to significantly higher death rates in the U.S. than in other developed countries.  "During the devastating global covid-19 pandemic, one nation stood out:  the United States saw 'eye wateringly high' death rates compared with its peer nations.  The 1.16 million Americans killed by covid-19 represent 16% of global deaths in a nation with 4% of the world's population," wrote the authors, Duke University professor Gavin Yamey and Drexel University professor Ana Roux.

Rebecca Charles:  Death by Hospital Protocol.  "It is incomprehensible how a vibrant and healthy 28-year-old could enter the hospital with normal vital signs, only to tragically leave in a body bag, her organs irreparably damaged."  So says the mother of Danielle Alvarez, who passed away tragically in 2021 at a Covid hospital in New York.  Rebecca Charles has now made it her mission to "unmask the truth behind deadly hospital protocols."  "I want to put an end to this injustice," she tells The New American.  "By sharing Danielle's story, I aim to unveil the realities of profit-driven practices, ensuring her memory serves as a catalyst for positive change."  [Video clip]

The vaccine cover-up is rapidly unravelling.  The elephant in the room of excess deaths is trumpeting louder — and is once again stepping on the toes of Big Pharma in Parliament.  Andrew Bridgen MP's powerful speech last Tuesday at a Backbench Business Committee meeting sent a clear message to the politicians who have tried to ignore this elephant — you can't turn a blind eye much longer.  Despite a barrage of personal attacks and being thrown out of the Tory party, Bridgen has continued to battle for 14 months against top-level resistance to public debate over excess deaths and the links to covid 'vaccine' harm.  In this interview with me the North West Leicestershire MP talks about growing cross-party support from his Parliamentary peers, and his hopes for a full House of Commons debate on excess deaths by Easter.

Survey:  Nearly half the deaths observed in US households judged to be due to the COVID vaccine.  I engaged a professional market research expert, Leonard Murphy, to do a survey about vaccine injuries and deaths in American households.  He created the survey with some input from me.  I personally funded it.  The list he used was from a third party professional firm and not biased in any way.  The results will stun you.  1,000 American households were surveyed.  The survey demographics are chosen to be representative of America.  Of the 1,000 households surveyed, 194 reported a death in their household since 2021. [...] This is a train wreck for a product that was billed as "safe and effective."

New documents strengthen — perhaps conclusively — the lab-leak hypothesis of Covid-19's origins.  The day is growing ever closer when Washington may have to add to its agenda with Beijing a nettlesome item it has long sought to avoid: the increasingly likely fact that China let the SARS2 virus escape from the Wuhan lab where it was concocted, setting off the Covid-19 pandemic that killed some 7 million people globally and wrought untold economic havoc.  New documents may explain why no one has been able to find the SARS2 virus (aka SARS-CoV-2) infesting a colony of bats, from which it might have jumped to people.  The reason would be that the virus has never existed in the natural world.  Documents obtained by U.S. Right to Know, a health advocacy group, provide a recipe for assembling SARS-type viruses from six synthetic pieces of DNA designed to be a consensus sequence — the genetically most infectious form — of viruses related to SARS1, the bat virus that caused the minor epidemic of 2002.  The probative weight of the recipe is that prior independent evidence already pointed to SARS2 having just such a six-section structure.

Lessons from The Great Covid Cover-Up.  No one should be surprised that a totalitarian government run by the Chinese Communist Party would seek to cover up its responsibility for a worldwide pandemic.  What was mind-jarring — and what we should focus our attention on — is the cover-up in our own country spearheaded by Dr. Anthony Fauci and his fellow public health bureaucrats.  And they might have gotten away with their deception if a federal judge hadn't ordered their emails released.  In brief, these emails reveal that at the same time Dr. Fauci and other public health "experts" were publicly disavowing the idea that the Covid virus originated with a leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, they were in general agreement among themselves that that was likely what had happened.  So why hide the fact?

Japanese doctors:  Thousands of papers have reported crippling and/or deadly side effects of "vaccination".  Those desperate to deny what's going on — or paid to do so — like to claim that all those "sudden deaths" and crippling injuries worldwide prove nothing: that all such reports are merely "anecdotal," with no "science" confirming what that overwhelming "anecdotal" evidence (which increases every hour of every day) has long since made quite obvious.  Those denialists (and, no doubt, bots) all saying it, however, doesn't make it so.  The science reconfirming what we've shown for some two years — we and many others out there — is, to say the least, abundant and precise, showing clearly that this man-made global plague is, as Dr. Fukushima put it, "affecting every possible aspect of human pathology — from ophthalmology to psychiatry."  More specifically, the psychiatric studies reconfirm that all those wild, barbaric "altercations" blowing up all over just these last few years are also likely side effects of "vaccination."  In that literature, "brain-related adverse events, [including] mental disorders, psychiatric symptoms, depression, mania, anxiety, came up in abundance, and it's endless."

FDA's New Rule Allows For Medical Research Without Informed Consent.  In an effort to encourage the discovery of more treatment and diagnostic options in the medical field, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has finalized a rule allowing certain clinical trials to operate without obtaining informed consent from participants.  The hitch?  The study cannot pose more than minimal risk to humans and must include appropriate safeguards to protect the rights, safety, and welfare of those involved.  The rule was issued in late December 2023 and went into effect on Jan. 22, 2024.

Covid:  The Parallel History.  [Scroll down]  The darkness is that the vaccines were going to be rolled out but if not many people had died from covid then the vaccine uptake would be low.  So the covid cabal needed plenty of deaths for a virus that, initially, is no more deadly than influenza.  To that end, hospitals in the US were given a $13,000 bonus if covid was listed as the cause of death on a death certificate.  If someone bled to death from a car accident, but covid could be found in his blood, then that would be counted as a covid death and the hospital would get its $13,000.  To that end it helped that the PCR test used gave a high proportion of false positives.  This also explains the idiotic protocol for dealing with a covid infection.  People were advised to stay at home, not take any antivirals or anything else, then when they got really sick they were to go to hospital.  The hospitals didn't give them any antivirals either, but were rewarded by the US Government with a 20% bonus for putting patients on Remdesivir.  People who didn't recover on their own but continued to ICU were put on ventilators.  The ventilators had an 85% death rate so being sent to ICU amounted to a death sentence.  The US Government reward to hospitals for putting people on ventilators was $39,000. Per patient.  Someone could kill one patient and get to drive off in a new car. [...] The internet is now full of stories from people who have realized that the hospitals deliberately killed family members and loved ones.  At the same time, ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine and anything else found to have some efficacy against covid were promptly vilified and banned.

Covid Vaccines Produce Random Junk Proteins Thanks to an "Invention" Which Coincidentally Won the Nobel Prize.  Would you like to get a mystery shot, which would make your body produce random, garbage proteins for an indeterminate amount of time?  Well, it turned out that mRNA Covid vaccines have precisely that effect!  Scientists discovered that in addition to the toxic "spike protein," mRNA vaccines have a weakness that introduces "read errors," making vaccinated individuals produce nearly random proteins with unknown and unpredictable effects.

When fact-checking goes silent.  [Scroll down]  The activities of the censors came to prominence during the Covid-crisis, when many critics of the authoritarian power measures felt the stigmatisation of the fact-checkers and the resulting cancelling.  According to Vinay Prasad, professor of epidemiology at the University of California in the US, the authorities lied about many aspects of Covid-19, such as natural immunity, masks and vaccine mandates.  Dr Martin Kulldorff has pointed out how Big Tech has been instrumental in spreading misinformation from the authorities about Covid-19, including the denial of natural immunity.  Marty Makary, a professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins University, has repeatedly pointed out that during the Covid-crisis, many tragic mistakes were made by those in power, from school closures and mandatory masking of children to the denial of natural immunity and compulsory vaccination of the healthy.  According to Jayanta Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford University, governments have been a primary source of misinformation, especially about public health and science.  The academic discipline purporting to police disinformation selectively ignores government disinformation.  As such, their primary purpose is to promote the propaganda of the powerful.

Minds To Think.  For a lot of us, there is no excuse to be uninformed and unprepared by now, but there are so many who come across bits and pieces of the picture without the will to put them together and form a strategy for resistance. [...] They see the pandemic for the fraud that it was, for how it destroyed whole swaths of American cultural freedoms, but still they complied.  They accepted, they were too timid to just tell people no.

Boosters do not work in people who have had COVID.  Observational studies for boosters are biased.  Typically, they are biased towards the healthy vaccinee effect, i.e. people who get boosted are otherwise healthier than those who do not.  So much of the "booster effect" is actually just being healthier.  That's why some analyses have reported that boosters lower all cause mortality (95%!) or the unvaccinated have more car accidents and other such implausible things.  A good peer review would have stopped these papers, but, peer review doesn't work well in times of runaway groupthink.  So when an observational study shows that boosters DO NOT REDUCE COVID-19 DEATHS in people who already had COVID that occurs despite the bias to find a benefit.  It probably means the obvious:  once you have COVID, you have natural immunity against severe outcomes, and further doses are illogical.

House Select Subcommittee Is Easy Theater For Fauci.  I appeared on Outside the Beltway with John Fredericks with Real America's Voice to comment on the US House of Representatives Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic interrogation of Dr. Fauci this week.  My interview was on the morning of Friday, January 12, 2024, a few hours before I would testify in Congress and give my analysis of the pandemic response and the vaccine debacle.  Fauci was not asked a single important question from the committee on his role with Drs.  Ralph Baric, Peter Daszak, and Shi Zhengli on the creation through gain-of-function research, of the SARS-like Wuhan Institute of Virology-1-CoV virus published in 2015-2016.  He was not asked why the genetic code from Baric's virus was not released to the public per usual procedures with government sponsored research.  Menachery et al, publications describing the creation of a SARS-CoV-2 prototypical virus in the Wuhan Institute of Virology in the years before publication in 2015 and 2016.  The answer is likely the code matched or was a near relative to the ancestral Wuhan strain that got the entire world sick.  Finally Fauci was not asked about record injuries, disabilities, and death.

Disturbing Details Of Fauci's Testimony Leave No Option But To Frogmarch Him Down Memory Lane.  Despite the selective amnesia Dr. Anthony Fauci was laboring with this month while testifying before the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, a fascinating detail emerged from the testimony, a summary of which was released to the public on Wednesday.  According to lawmakers who were there, the former head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and former chief medical adviser to the president — the man who once equated himself with science itself — offered a stunning concession that the six-foot social distancing edict "sort of just appeared" out of nowhere and was likely not based on scientific data.  Many have argued this for years.  Twelve months after the first coronavirus guidelines were issued on March 9, 2020, Tucker Carlson pointed out what a report in the British Medical Journal had contended six months earlier:  Social distancing rules that "stipulate a single specific physical distance between individuals to reduce transmission" originate in flawed research from the late 19th century and a longstanding framework that simplistically "dichotomizes respiratory droplets into two sizes."  So how did this quackery suddenly become trusted "science"?  Revisiting the critical February to March 2020 time frame, including Fauci's emails from the period, provides some insight.

CDC Drafted Alert for Myocarditis and COVID-19 Vaccines, but Never Sent It.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) prepared to alert state and local officials to an emerging connection between heart inflammation and COVID-19 vaccines, but ultimately did not send the alert, according to a new document obtained by The Epoch Times.  All four COVID-19 vaccines that are or have been available in the United States can cause the heart inflammation, or myocarditis, according to studies, experts, and agencies like the CDC.  The first cases were reported shortly after the vaccines became available in late 2020.  The CDC sends alerts to federal, state, and local public health officials and doctors across the nation through a system called the Health Alert Network (HAN).  Messaging through the system conveys "vital health information," according to the CDC.

The Smoking Gun.  [Scroll down]  But now, Emily Kopp from The US Right to Know (USRTK) has obtained additional detail about the DEFUSE proposal that is far more than a smoking gun but, in fact, is more analogous to finding the gun, fingerprint and confession note in one place.  Emily found evidence that this proposal also listed the very restriction enzyme (BsmBI) that Bruttel et al. claimed could build the virus.  Not only did Bruttel et al. notice that BsmBI sites were conveniently evenly spaced throughout the viral genome and this spacing was not only NOT observed in other CVs but that this approach made complete sense as a logical path to manually assembling the genome.  Low and behold the DEFUSE proposal actually contains NEB R0580S part numbers to order these very enzymes to construct the virus in the manner Bruttel et al. predicted.  This is a case closed event!  There is no more debate.  C19 was made in a lab.  Which lab and when is still a hot topic but it didn't come from a pangolin courting a bat.

Thanks to Fauci & Co., America now must worry about measles outbreaks.  The 2021-2022 academic year saw only 93% of kindergartners with an MMR vaccine; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have charted vaccine exemptions as the highest they've ever been.  If you think that same agency's endless flip-flopping and outright lying on COVID, vaccines, masks, and social distancing aren't a prime cause of this, we have a bridge we'd like to sell you.  Masking for toddlers.  Demanding that vaccinated people quarantine after mere exposure to COVID.  Slow-walking school reopenings, long after evidence showed kids weren't at real risk from the virus and schools weren't significant transmission vectors.  The list is endless.

Ask Why 429 Moms Died.  "U.S. maternal deaths are on a worrisome trajectory," the American Medical Association declared after news that pregnancy-related deaths soared 40 percent in 2021 to levels unseen since 1965.  But in releasing its 2021 maternal mortality report — seventeen months after the fact — the U.S. Centers for Disease Control left out crucial context.  It made no mention of the role of Covid-19, even in the pandemic's worst year and even as data was readily available.  We analyzed that data, assisted by a programmer and an actuary, and found a disturbing trend.  Of the 1,205 mothers who died in or within forty-two days of pregnancy in 2021, 429 had Covid-19 on the death certificate as either the primary or a contributing cause — a 321 percent increase in Covid pregnancy deaths from the first wave in 2020.  By comparison, total Covid deaths in the United States rose a relatively modest 20 percent — one-fifteen as much as in pregnant women.

Will the Next Pandemic Come from a Colorado Bat Lab?  Healthcare workers in Colorado have received a live Ebola vaccine "for preventive measures," says Immunize Colorado.  The injection was Merck's ERVEBO jab, administered in case of a "future outbreak."  The situation is curious both as to timing and place, because just north of Denver Health where they work, a "new $12 million, U.S.-taxpayer-funded lab is being built in Fort Collins, Colorado," according to investigative journalist Jon Fleetwood.  "The lab will import bats from around the world and experiment on dangerous diseases," explains the Daily Mail.  One of those diseases is Ebola.  Dr. Richard Bartlett believes this could be the setup for the next pandemic.  He warns that the lab is funded by Peter Daszak's EcoHealth Alliance, the same group linked to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  He says untreated Ebola has a 50 percent mortality rate and that the FDA package insert for the live-virus ERVEBO product lists a shedding rate of an astonishing 31 percent.

Senator Drops Bombshell Data:  Covid Shots [are] 55 Times Deadlier than Flu Vaccines.  Republican Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) has just gone public with explosive federal government data showing the alarming death rates associated with Covid mRNA injections.  Sen. Johnson and his team have been investigating the links between Covid shots are the soaring sudden deaths and major health complications that have been spiking across the country.  Johnson's investigators conducted an in-depth analysis of data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).  According to Johnson, the data indicates that the COVID-19 injections are "significantly" more deadly than the flu vaccine.

Feds conceal details about anti-ivermectin campaign in response to doctors' reinstated lawsuit.  The Food and Drug Administration wants to continue its selective promotion of off-label drug use: good for COVID-19 vaccines, bad for alternatives to those vaccines.  It just doesn't want the public to see its full reasoning for the latter.  The FDA and the Department of Health and Human Services filed a renewed motion to dismiss a lawsuit by doctors claiming the agencies have a practice of demonizing ivermectin by conflating its human and animal doses and using "command" language, such as "stop it," to discourage using the anti-parasite drug against COVID.  But it was filed under seal, with the agreement of U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Brown and plaintiffs Drs.  Robert Apter, Mary Talley Bowden, and Paul Marik, who claim they suffered wide-ranging injury from the anti-ivermectin campaign.  The feds cited "lack of subject-matter jurisdiction" — the doctors lack legal standing — in a Dec. 2 request for an extension of time to submit the dismissal motion.

2,500 Reported Deaths — and the True Number Could be 10 Times Higher.  The MHRA's reports on the COVID-19 vaccines, which are updated in line with its summary of the Yellow Card reporting publication.  The MHRA Summary of Yellow Card Scheme Reporting for COVID-19 vaccines was published on March 8th 2023.  Since January, the reports have focused on the vaccines from the beginning of the Autumn 2022 booster campaign.  As of February 22nd 2023 in the U.K., 4,096 Yellow Card events were reported for the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine Pfizer/BioNTech, 5,108 for the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine Moderna, 57 for the COVID-19 vaccine Novavax and 2,319 were reported where the brand of the vaccine was not specified.  The MHRA had received 30 U.K. reports of suspected adverse drug reactions (ADRs) with a fatal outcome to the bivalent COVID-19 Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and 42 fatal reports of suspected ADRs with the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine Moderna.  The MHRA received no U.K. reports of a fatal outcome for the COVID-19 vaccine Novavax.

Covid Vaccine Trials Exaggerated Safety, Study in Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice Finds.  Everyone debating the merits of the COVID-19 vaccines needs to take these four journal articles into account.  The Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice's hugely important series of articles on exaggerated COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness and safety claims, involving BMJ Editor Peter Doshi and myself, has now concluded.  The initial Fung, Jones, and Doshi paper outlines statistical biases, such as the 'case counting window' bias, that likely lead to the Covid vaccines' effectiveness being exaggerated in observational studies.  The subsequent paper by Lataster (that's me) then explained the situation is worse, as the case counting window bias is often accompanied by a definitional bias, and noted that this could exaggerate vaccine safety as well.  Doshi and Fung then returned with a further paper indicating that numerous cases in the vaccinated were overlooked in the clinical trials, likely leading to exaggerated effectiveness estimates.  The fourth and final article in this 'series', again by myself, notes that this also appears to apply to safety estimates in the clinical trials, whilst also confirming my earlier concerns about safety estimates in observational studies, and noting that the myocarditis issue alone could mean that the jabs are not worth the risk in the young and healthy.

Fauci's Memory Keeps Failing Him in 14 Hours of COVID-19 Testimony.  Dr. Anthony Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who famously claimed to "represent science," has a monumentally bad memory.  In recent and lengthy testimony to the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic behind closed doors, Fauci claimed that he "did not recall" over 100 times.  In his deposition Nov. 23, 2022, in the federal case of Missouri v. Biden, Fauci's recollection failed him 174 times.  The good doctor is presenting an impressive case of recurrent amnesia.  Nonetheless, following two days and 14 hours of a wide-ranging interrogation over Jan. 8 and 9 examining the federal government's flawed response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fauci confirmed three vitally important points for the record.  [#1] The view that the deadly pandemic originated in a leak from a Chinese research lab no longer is a "conspiracy" theory. [...] [#2] Oversight by Fauci's agency of grants to taxpayer-funded laboratories overseas is poor. [...] [#3] America's top public health officials, including Fauci, didn't "follow the science."

The Hysterical Style in American Politics.  The outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States during the winter of 2020 prompted an even greater hysteria.  Without scientific evidence, federal health czars Anthony Fauci and Francis Collins were able to convince the Trump administration to shut down the economy in the country's first national quarantine.  Suddenly, it became a thought crime to question the wisdom of six-foot social distancing, of mandatory mask wearing, of the Wuhan virology lab's origin of the COVID virus, or of off-label use of prescription drugs.  Left-wing politicians and celebrities, from Hillary Clinton and Gavin Newsom to Jane Fonda, all blurted out the political advantages that the lockdowns offered — from recalibrating capitalism and health care to ensuring the 2020 defeat of Donald Trump.  The COVID hysteria magically ended when Joe Biden won the 2020 election.  Suddenly, the lies about the bat or pangolin origins of the virus faded.  The damage from the quarantines could no longer be repressed.  And herd immunity gradually mitigated the epidemic.  The lockdown caused untold economic chaos, suicides, and health crises.

There Could Be Only One Reason Why the Chinese Messed With the Coronavirus Again.  There's a new COVID variant that China has been tweaking in the lab, and it's unbelievable.  It was tested on mice and had a 100 percent mortality rate.  Dubbed the 'brain virus,' Chinese scientists are paving the way for another global pandemic if this escapes their labs again.  The study involved a "cousin" strain of the coronavirus, which was mutated and then administered to humanized mice; all died within eight days.  The study does not say how this could impact humans, but the research has been heavily criticized as pointless, dangerous, and veering into absolute madness.

Chinese lab crafts mutant COVID-19 strain with 100% kill rate in 'humanized' mice: 'Surprisingly' rapid death.  In a Wuhan-esque study, Chinese scientists are experimenting with a mutant COVID-19 strain that is 100% lethal to "humanized" mice.  The deadly virus — known as GX_P2V — attacked the brains of mice that were engineered to reflect genetic makeup similar to people, according to a study shared last week out of Beijing.  "This underscores a spillover risk of GX_P2V into humans and provides a unique model for understanding the pathogenic mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2-related viruses," the authors wrote.  The deadly virus is a mutated version of GX/2017, a coronavirus cousin that was reportedly discovered in Malaysian pangolins in 2017 — three years before the pandemic.  Pangolins, also called scaly anteaters, are mammals found in warm areas of the planet.

A Government that Sows Division and Subsidizes Madness.  How can any government maintain its legitimacy for long when it embraces insanity as reality and condemns reality as imaginary?  For a long time, psychologically balanced people have done their best to ignore the government's increasingly psychotic behavior.  When pressed, they have even reluctantly played along:  You need me to wear this filthy paper mask that does nothing to prevent the transmission of viral particles floating in the air, so that you know that I know that this is somehow all Trump's fault?  Fine, don't break down in tears or start screaming or call the cops.  I'll play along.  Playing along, however, has gotten psychologically healthy people nowhere.  For every insane concession they make to government authorities, those authorities invent half a dozen new insane demands of society.

Francis Collins:  Lab Leak Is NOT a Conspiracy Theory.  The virus junta's backtracking continues apace.  And, in all likelihood, the hits will keep on coming.  Not that anybody will do anything about it.  The bureaucrats who brought you "safe and effective," masking, school closures, shutdowns, and zoonotic emergence will keep collecting prizes, keep getting pushed as "experts" in the media, and will be treated as the heroes of the pandemic.  The Establishment went all-in on using the pandemic to push its agenda of censorship, economic takeover, and retaking the government from MAGA, and they succeeded in all three.  So their pandemic response was a success.  Little things like the deaths of millions, the burning down of our economy, the massive learning loss, and all the collateral damage caused by their management of our country are small prices to pay for their successful power grab.

China experimenting with 100% deadly new Covid strain:  Report.  Undeterred by loss of countless lives across the world, China is now reportedly experimenting with a new Covid-like virus that has a "mortality rate of 100 percent."  Doctors trained by Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) have made their version of "pangolin coronavirus" which has been found to have 100 percent mortality in mice.  According to a report published in bioRxiv, a group of mice were administered with SARS-CoV-2-related pangolin coronavirus GX_P2V to test its effect.  The shocking results indicate potential dangers and a risk of the virus spilling over onto humans.  A lab-made version of the pangolin coronavirus, called GX_P2V, was used in experiments on mice.  The pangolin animal is known to carry a coronavirus variant, making it a subject of interest for the study.

Contaminated: We've Been Their Lab Rats All Along.  An increasing number of prominent medical professionals have called for an immediate halt in the use of the alleged, "safe and effective" COVID-19 mRNA shots.  Now, the Florida State Surgeon General, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, has joined the ever-growing list. [...] The Florida Surgeon General's warnings centred around the potential health risks associated with insertional mutagenesis (the integration of foreign DNA with the subject/host's genome). But he did not stop there — he also raised a further concerning risk of generational mutagenesis.  Where the "DNA integrated into sperm or egg gametes could be passed onto the offspring of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine recipients."  The basis of Dr Ladapo's warning regarding the presence of the "SV40 promoter/enhancer DNA" in the mRNA shots is founded on the bombshell findings of a recent pre-print study.  Significant levels (billions to hundreds of billions of fragments of plasmid DNA) were found in both Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech's monovalent and bivalent mRNA shots, vastly exceeding regulatory standards.  Leading one to conclude that the injectable mRNA products that have gone into the arms of billions are heavily adulterated, as well as being misbranded.

3 Big Covid Whoppers Fauci Confessed To Congress This Week.  If Dr. Anthony Fauci thought retiring from his nearly-half-a-million dollar government position would end questions about his disastrous policymaking, he was sorely mistaken.  This week, the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases faced tough questions from the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, and his answers confirmed many of the worst fears of those in the medical community who spoke out during his reign of terror.  Although his 14-hour testimony was behind closed doors, the subcommittee provided an overview of the most salient points that were covered and promised to make a full transcript available soon.  Here are the three most notable takeaways and how they can be addressed moving forward.  [#1] They Were Not Following 'The Science' [...] [#2] Vaccine Mandates Backfired:  That brings us to point two.  During his congressional testimony, Fauci finally conceded that Covid vaccine mandates could make people more broadly vaccine-hesitant.  Using the levers of government to force citizens to take an untested vaccine rushed to market under the banner of "warp speed" was never a wise idea.

FDA Launches Fresh Bid to Toss Out High-Profile Ivermectin Case.  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is seeking to persuade a federal court to dismiss a lawsuit challenging its repeated advisories against using ivermectin to treat COVID-19.  The FDA in a sealed motion asked the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas to dismiss the suit, which was brought by three doctors who allege the FDA's warnings were illegal.  The late 2023 motion was sealed because exhibits the government cited "include confidential information" from a separate legal proceeding, according to a government brief.  Government lawyers said they would file redacted versions of the motion for public perusal but still haven't done so.

Former New Orleans Saints Linebacker Ronald Powell Dead at 32.  The NFL Players Association announced on Tuesday that former New Orleans Saints linebacker Ronald Powell passed away on Monday at the age of 32.  The cause of death has not been disclosed.

Fitness Influencer Dies Suddenly of Cardiac Arrest at 35.  A popular social media influencer has tragically died suddenly after suffering an unexpected cardiac arrest at just 35 years old.  Brazil-born newlywed Mila De Jesus lived in Boston with her husband and leaves behind four children.  She shot to fame as a fitness influencer on Instagram while undergoing a major weight loss transformation.  Jam Press reported that De Jesus passed away suddenly Friday, just four months after marrying her husband, George Kowszik.

If Masks Don't Work, Why Do Surgeons Wear Them?  It's 2024 and people still can't seem to get over masks.  I see people advertising that they have Covid by turning up in crowded locations wearing a mask.  Nobody else is wearing a mask and yesterday neither were they.  But this morning they didn't feel quite right so they took a test (yes, they're still buying tests and testing too).  They cough and splutter into their masks, thinking they are being responsible citizens by wearing a cheap piece of cloth in front of their faces.  They have been indoctrinated into believing that this unsealed barrier will prevent any virus they have from being transmitted around the room.  Here's a message for those people — if you are sick enough to think you need a mask, stay at home.  If you are wearing a mask purely because a test told you to — don't.  Virtue signalling doesn't protect anyone in the real world.

New Medicare data makes it clear that the COVID vaccines have killed millions of people worldwide.  COVID hasn't been killing anyone since April 2022 in any significant numbers.  This means that there was absolutely no reason for anyone to get a booster shot after April 2022.  Even if the vaccine were safe and worked perfectly, there is no data supporting such a need. [...] The flu shots simply kill people for no benefit.  The data is in plain sight for all to see. [...] The mRNA COVID vaccines should be pulled from the market.  They are literally doing the opposite of what was promised.  The flu vaccine should be pulled as well.  While the flu vaccine isn't nearly as deadly as the COVID vaccine, it is an unsafe vaccine with no measurable clinical benefit.

Covid mRNA Vaccines Required No Safety Oversight:  Part Two.  The agreement between the US government, represented by the Department of Defense (DoD), and Pfizer, representing the BioNTech/Pfizer partnership, in July 2020, for the purchase of a "vaccine to prevent COVID-19" was not an ordinary acquisition contract.  It was an agreement under Other Transaction Authority (OTA) — an acquisition pathway that, according to Department of Defense guidelines, has been used since 1958 to "permit a federal agency to enter into transactions other than contracts, grants, or cooperative agreements."  A thorough review of the use of OTA by the DoD, including its statutory history, can be found in the February 22, 2019 Congressional Research Service report.  This report, along with every other discussion of OTA, specifies that it is an alternative acquisition path for defense and military purposes.  It is not intended, nor has it ever been used before Covid, for anything intended primarily for civilian use.

Top Cardiologist Testifies:  Heart Failure Soaring Among Vaxxed.  One of the world's leading cardiologists has just given an explosive testimony before lawmakers on Capitol Hill, revealing the devastating side effects of Covid mRNA shots.  Cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough was among several leading experts, including Dr. Ryan Cole and Dr. Kirk Milhoan, to testify during a congressional hearing on Friday.  The hearing was convened by Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and sought to examine the risks to public health from the injections.  McCullough delivered a powerful testimony in his opening statements, revealing numerous complications he's encountered among vaccinated patients.

Did HCQ Really Cause 17,000 Deaths?  Nearly 17,000 people in the U.S. and five other countries "may have died" early in the pandemic because they used hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to treat COVID-19, according to a paper published in the February 2024 issue of Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy.  Major media outlets, including Politico, The Hill and Forbes ran with the headline. [...] The study also said nothing about the impact of other drugs patients may have received, such as remdesivir, or whether patients were put on ventilators prior to dying.  These two factors alone — widely practiced in U.S. hospitals during the pandemic — are known to have significantly increased COVID-19 mortality.  Dr. Peter McCullough told The Defender the 44 studies used in the meta-analysis were "heterogeneous" and that "Nonrandomized, retrospective cross-sectional cohorts created from administrative data demonstrated confounding by indication."  In other words, this type of look-back study could not reliably tell if HCQ had an effect or not as it is unable to control for the various ways the treatment and non-treatment groups differed from the start, nor could it account for the different methods or results used in the studies.

Lawsuit: United Airlines Mocked and Shamed Vaccine Mandate Holdouts — CEO Accused of Floating 'Scarlet Letter' on ID Badges.  United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby and upper management expressed animosity toward religious employees who sought exemptions from the company's draconian coronavirus vaccine mandate, internal company communications have revealed.  A legal brief filed early Saturday in part of a larger lawsuit against the airline contains internal communications obtained in discovery, which shows management's effort to coerce religious employees to take the coronavirus vaccine at every turn.  The effort was so blatant that one union president, Craig Symons, expressed to Scott Kirby and others that United was "over the line" and attempting to institute a "purge of religious orthodoxy," the brief revealed.

Phony Fauci fesses up on fake science and COVID flim-flam.  The pint-size patron saint of the failed restrictionist policies that lefties and COVID crazies love simply can't admit he's lost a massive argument with reality.  The Not-So-Good Doctor got off to a weak start in DC, surprising House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Chair Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) with "how much he doesn't recall" from the start of the pandemic.  How convenient!  Fauci, after all, led the effort in the early days of the pandemic to quash the idea (now regarded as probable by the feds) that COVID sprang from the Wuhan Institute of Virology — throwing his considerable weight behind efforts to smear and suppress anyone who dared to dissent.  That's after he admitted in private he took it seriously.

Fauci 'doesn't recall' dozens of his actions about COVID pandemic.  Anthony Fauci, the ex-chief of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and White House COVID adviser, told Congress this week dozens and dozens of times that he didn't remember key facts about his actions regarding the pandemic that came out of a China lab and circled the globe, killing millions.  And that prompted the Children's Health Defense organization to conclude he was evading providing answers about critical components of the nation's response, such as shot mandates, social distancing and masks, developed under his guidance.  Fauci was summoned by Congress to answer questions about COVID and its toll on Americans by the House of Representatives' Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic.  Chairman Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, explained, "Dr. Fauci's testimony today uncovered drastic and systemic failures in America's public health systems."  But he noted Fauci apparently "had no idea what was happening under his own jurisdiction at NIAID."

New Disease VEXAS Syndrome Manifests After COVID and Vaccination.  Some vaccinated and COVID-infected people are reportedly being diagnosed with a new type of disease called VEXAS syndrome — an autoinflammatory disease discovered in 2020.  Many people are familiar with autoimmune diseases, often caused by dysfunction among the adaptive immune cells, while problems within the innate immune system often cause autoinflammatory diseases.  VEXAS syndrome — short for vacuoles, E1 enzyme, X-linked, autoinflammatory, somatic syndrome — is caused by mutations in the innate immune cells, a somatic mutation in the UBA1 gene found on the X chromosome.

'Tip of the Iceberg': Study Finds 309 Lab Infections and 16 Lab Pathogen Escape Incidents in 21 Years.  A recent worldwide study has discovered that there have been several hundreds of laboratory-related infections over the past two decades, and over a dozen cases of pathogens escaping from facilities.  The peer-reviewed study, published in The Lancet Microbe on Dec. 12, analyzed several journals and media reports published between 2000 and 2021 to identify incidences of laboratory-acquired infections (LAIs) and accidental pathogen escape from laboratory settings (APELS).  Out of the 94 reports analyzed, researchers identified 309 LAIs caused by 51 pathogens and 16 incidences of APELS.

Veterans Affairs Found Safety Signal for Pfizer COVID Vaccine, Never Disclosed It.  A federal agency detected early in the COVID-19 vaccination campaign a safety signal for a serious problem for Pfizer's shot, a document obtained by The Epoch Times shows.  The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) detected a signal for myocarditis and pericarditis for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, according to the document, an email from May 13, 2021.  Myocarditis is heart inflammation while pericarditis is inflammation of tissue around the heart.

Were COVID "Vaccines" Pre-Meditated Murder?  Attorney Presents "Smoking Gun" Evidence.  One attorney claims to have discovered "smoking gun" evidence that the COVID-19 "vaccines" were pre-meditated murder.  American Attorney Thomas Renz reviewed the United States Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") 'Guidance for Industry' documents and discovered this evidence.  Thomas "Tom" Renz became well known early on during the COVID scamdemic era for leading federal lawsuits in six U.S. states that challenged shutdowns, mask mandates, and the safety and/or efficacy of the "vaccines".  He works through the law firm 'Renz Law' and regularly publishes articles on his Substack page titled 'Tom Renz's Newsletter'.  "There's no other conclusion that I can draw," he said of the claim that the shots were pre-meditated murder.  "This is the smoking gun evidence that proves they knew that the gene therapy products they masqueraded as "vaccines" had the ability to shed, cause cancer, and kill," he said.  And then the shots were unleashed on the naive masses anyway, causing untold harm.

Lab Leak Is Not a Conspiracy Theory, Anthony Fauci Concedes.  Former White House coronavirus advisor Anthony Fauci doesn't believe the lab leak explanation of COVID-19's origins is a conspiracy theory.  He admitted as much during a closed-door grilling session before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic on Monday.  Legislators did not release a transcript of his testimony, but Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), the chairman of the subcommittee, published some highlights on X (formerly Twitter).  [Tweet]

Fauci's Latest Admissions Are the Death of Expertise.  Stop me if you've heard this one before.  Noted "experts" who demanded total subservience have once again been exposed as misleading those they sought to control.  That's the story after Dr. Anthony Fauci made several interesting (and disturbing) admissions regarding the federal government's response to COVID-19.  Fauci was testifying in a closed-door setting to the House coronavirus sub-committee when he told those present that the infamous "six foot" social distancing rule was essentially based on nothing.

Fauci Confesses:  Six-foot social distancing guidance was not evidence-based, and 'sort of just appeared'.  Not only is Anthony Fauci a shameless flip-flopper, but he's an extremely sloppy one at that — why are these criminals in politics (pardon the redundancy) so incapable of covering their tracks? [...] How does Fauci "confess" to Capitol Hill lawmakers that the six-foot social distancing guidance "sort of just appeared" out of the ether, knowing full well that his own sworn testimony revealed exactly from where it came? [...] Let me just cut to the chase and remind him exactly from where the "social distancing" policy came:  China and the World Health Organization, via Fauci's own hand-picked man.  Now, the only reason I know this is because I wrote a blog back in December of 2022, shortly after Fauci testified under oath as a defendant in a lawsuit brought by several Republican Attorneys General against the Biden regime — the deposition revealed that the social distancing policy (among others) didn't just float down from the ether, as Fauci now apparently insists, but was openly pushed by anti-American foreign adversaries, and delivered stateside by Fauci's "recommended" accomplice.

Dr. Fauci Admits Social Distancing Rules 'Just Appeared' Out Of Nowhere, COVID Subcommittee Chairman Says.  Former Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted to lawmakers Tuesday there was likely no scientific data behind social distancing guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Republican Ohio Rep. Brad Wenstrup, Chairman of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, released a statement Wednesday morning outlining key details from Fauci's Tuesday testimony including his admission that social distancing guidelines "sort of just appeared" during the COVID-pandemic. "After two days of testimony and 14 hours of questioning, many things became evident.  During his interview today, Dr. Fauci claimed that the policies and mandates he promoted may unfortunately increase vaccine hesitancy for years to come," Wenstrup stated.  "He testified that the lab leak hypothesis — which was often suppressed — was, in fact, not a conspiracy theory.

We must keep calm and resist the new 'muzzle mania' over face masks.  You mask if you want to.  This free Englishman is not for masking.  The evidence-light campaign to get us all to go about with soggy pieces of cloth on our faces is back.  In Tuesday's Daily Mail, Dr Saleyha Ahsan issued a trumpet-blast in favour of masking, and blamed her own recent chest infection on coughing passengers on a plane she flew on, who 'had chosen to not wear masks and instead spread their viral droplets over the rest of us'.  She had forgotten to bring a mask of her own.  She complained:  'The plane was packed with chesty coughers and, not surprisingly, a few days later, I was unwell with what turned out to be a four-week viral illness.'  May I just point out here that this does not really add up to evidence that the two things are connected, as Dr Ahsan, a trained scientist, really ought to know.  But once the masking frenzy sets in (parts of Spain are already beginning to impose mask mandates), facts and logic fly far away.

The Covid vaccine gave me side effects that ruined my life, but Facebook keeps censoring me.  A woman who says she suffered chronic health complications after taking the AstraZeneca vaccine claims to have been censored from sharing her story on Facebook.  Caroline Pover, 52, received the jab in March 2021 and within nine hours, experienced convulsions, shivering, breathing difficulties and low blood pressure.  Ms Pover, of Cirencester, Gloucestershire, says she was hospitalised when her condition escalated to 'stroke-like' symptoms, in addition to exhaustion, breathing difficulties, a racing heart and migraines.

Embalmer survey 2023: Over 75% are still seeing novel white fibrous clots.  The jabs are still killing massive numbers of people.  It seems highly likely that most of these cases are caused by the COVID vaccines.  20% of deaths is roughly around 600,000 Americans a year.  The mainstream medical community, mainstream media, the FDA, CDC, NIH, and Congress are all still doing nothing to investigate the issue and determine which are jab related and which are not.  600,000 American deaths a year and nobody cares.

Dr. Anthony Fauci's Testimony.  Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) issued the following statement after day one of Dr. Anthony Fauci's two-day, 14-hour transcribed interview:  "Dr. Fauci's testimony today uncovered drastic and systemic failures in America's public health systems.  While leading the nation's COVID-19 response and influencing public narratives, he simultaneously had no idea what was happening under his own jurisdiction at NIAID.  Dr. Fauci signed off on all domestic and foreign research grants without reviewing the proposals and admitted that he was unaware if NIAID conducted oversight of the laboratories they fund.  Clearly, the American people and the United States government are operating with completely different expectations about the responsibilities of our public health leaders and the accountability of our public health agencies.  It is also concerning that the face of our nation's response to the world's worst public health crisis 'does not recall' key details about COVID-19 origins and pandemic-era policies. [..."]

Fauci admits he approved risky Wuhan coronavirus research proposal without reading it.  Dr Anthony Fauci evaded more than 100 questions about Covid, the lab leak theory and his ties to Wuhan during a landmark Congressional hearing Monday.  House Republicans who quizzed the ex-White House advisor said he 'played semantics' to avoid conceding that he funded dangerous research in China that is feared to have started the pandemic.  Dr Fauci, 82, also admitted that he signed off on millions of dollars worth of grants without reviewing the proposals — and appeared to admit his agency had little oversight of the foreign labs it bankrolled.

The AARP just told its 38 million members to get an eighth (yes, EIGHTH!) shot of mRNA.  The lobbying group for older Americans just told its nearly 38 million members to "hustle" for another Covid jab, even if they have already had five boosters. [...] Keep in mind that someone who has had "five Covid boosters" has actually received seven mRNA jabs — the initial two-shot primary vaccination regimen, followed by five boosters.  Thus AARP is suggesting its members should be taking their eighth jab of mRNA in the last three years.  Yet scientists have essentially no safety data beyond a third shot, much less a fourth or more, and thus no way of knowing if the risks of repeated mRNA dosing rise with each shot.

French Soccer Player Does The mRNA Death Spin Before Collapsing On The Pitch And Convulsing.  Umm-Salal's French striker Andy Delort collapsed and convulsed on the pitch in the 16th minute of the Qatar Stars Cup final against Al Arabi.  Ten minutes after scoring his team's first goal, the French striker began to spin around, as if dazed, seconds before collapsing to the ground and convulsing.  Andy Delort was quickly treated by the medical services present at the stadium, whilst the entire situation brought terror to those on the pitch.  [Video clip]

Fauci answers 'not recall' over 100 times, reveals 'drastic and systemic' failures, House chair says.  Dr. Anthony Fauci said he "did not recall" important information or conversations more than 100 times during his first day of a two-day transcribed interview with the House Coronavirus Select Subcommittee, but he also revealed major failures in the U.S. health system, Chairman Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, said.  "Dr. Fauci's testimony today uncovered drastic and systemic failures in America's public health systems," Wenstrup said Monday after Fauci, former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, met with the subcommittee earlier that day.  "While leading the nation's COVID-19 response and influencing public narratives, he simultaneously had no idea what was happening under his own jurisdiction at NIAID," Wenstrup also said, using the acronym of the federal agency where Fauci served as director for nearly four decades.

A summary of the evidence against the COVID vaccines.  Here's a quick summary of the key pieces of evidence that taken together show that the COVID vaccines are unsafe and that the medical community should not be trusted.

Why are so Many Californians Dying?  Covid has claimed about 105,000 lives in the state since 2020.  In that same time period, 82,000 more Californians died from everything else than is typical.  Adjusted for the decline in population, that non-Covid "excess death" figure becomes even more concerning as the state has seen its population drop to about the same it was in 2015.  In 2015 — obviously there was no Covid — 260,000 of the then 39 million Californians died.  In 2023, not including November and December, 240,000 people died not from Covid (6,000 additional people died of Covid.).  Extrapolating the year-to-date figures for 2023 creates a final year-end figure of 280,000 — 20,000 more people than died in 2015.  That's a non-Covid, population-neutral jump of 8%.  In other words, despite the protestations of certain officials, the state's death rate has NOT returned to "pre-Covid" levels — in 2019 the year before the pandemic, 270,000 people died with a population at least 400,000 greater than today.

City Abruptly Rescinds Mask Mandate 24 Hours After Issuance.  Authorities in St. Louis, Missouri, rescinded a recently announced mask mandate, acknowledging that they did not properly present the current levels of infection.  Dr. Matifadza Hlatshwayo Davis, the health director of St. Louis, had initially told city workers that starting January 5, they would be required to wear masks indoors and when riding with at least one other person in city vehicles.  This mandate was based on the assertion that influenza cases were 55% higher than the "highest median value of the past five years," and cases of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and COVID-19 hospitalizations had increased.  "Influenza, RSV, and COVID-19 diagnoses and hospital visits have been sharply increasing," Davis said.  She added, "we must take action to slow transmission and prevent strain on our hospital systems."  However, the mandate was withdrawn about 24 hours later, as confirmed by St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones.

Florida Surgeon General Warns Against Using mRNA COVID Vaccines Over Possible Cancer Risk.  Florida's Surgeon General, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, is warning against any use of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 mRNA vaccines, citing cancer concerns.  Dr. Ladapo was raising concerns following a Canadian study that found "billions to hundreds of billions" of DNA molecules per dose, exceeding guidelines set forth by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organization (WHO).  He sent a letter on Dec. 6 — that cited the Canadian study — to the FDA Commissioner Dr. Robert Califf and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Mandy Cohen, outlining his concerns about the high presence of DNA molecules in the mRNA vaccines alongside lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) used to deliver medicine into human cells.

Florida Surgeon General Calls for a Complete Halt on mRNA Vaccines.  Florida Surgeon General Joe Ladapo called today for a complete halt on the use of mRNA vaccines.  Below is the official statement found on the Florida Department of Health website.  [Tweet and press release]]

At least £550 million of Covid drugs wasted in the UK.  More than £550 million of Covid drugs have been wasted in the UK, according to analysis of health data, amid a "restrictive" rollout of the potentially lifesaving treatment.  Paxlovid — an antiviral developed by Pfizer and designed to be used shortly after people test positive for Covid-19 — was approved across Britain in 2021 after trial results found it reduced the risk of severe illness by almost 90 per cent.  Yet more than one million courses of the antiviral have now expired in the UK, according to a report from the health analytics firm Airfinty.  That figure could surge to 2.2 million by the end of June — equivalent to £1.1 billion worth of wasted drugs.  Britain's unused stock is higher than anywhere else in Europe.  About 200,000 doses expired before they were prescribed in Spain, and 100,000 in France and Italy, respectively.

The Distortion of Science To Support the Globalists' Climate Change Agenda.  Starting in the mid-20th century, companies began distorting and manpulating science to favor specific commercial interests. [...] Disrupting normative science has become a de rigueur component of the pharmaceutical industry business model.  A new pharmaceutical product is not based on need, it is based on market size and profitability.  When new data threatens the market of a pharmaceutical product, then that pharma company will try to sprout the seeds of scientific uncertainty and lack of proof.  For instance, clinical trials can be easily coopted to meet specified end-points positive for the drug products.  Other ways to manipulate a clinical trial include manipulating the dosing schedule and amounts.  As these practices have been exposed, people no longer trust the science.  Fast forward to the present, and the entire industry of evidence-based (and academic) medicine is now suspect due to the malfeasance of certain pharma players.  In the case of COVID-19, Pharma propaganda and cooptation practices have now compromised the regulatory bodies controlling the pharma product licensing and deeply damaged global public confidence in those agencies.

COVID-19 Vaccines Linked to Increased Risk of Swollen Lymph Nodes in Children:  Study.  Children who received a COVID-19 vaccine faced an increased risk of several adverse events, including swollen lymph nodes, researchers in Norway reported in a new study.  The Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines in children aged 12 and up were linked to increased risks of severe allergic shock, lymphadenopathy, and heart inflammation, according to the paper.  Researchers included people as old as 19.  In subanalyses, increased risks of acute appendicitis, epilepsy, and convulsions were also detected.

Ireland Confirms Their Pandemic Was Just a Psy-Op.  You can still go on to the Irish Covid dashboard and see the scary charts they produced to enforce lockdowns. [...] It looks very similar to the charts produced in other countries.  '[...D]eaths are spiking, let's lock down the whole country!'  Except there was nothing exceptional about the number of deaths in Ireland.  A new study undertaken by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation (OECD) examined recent mortality trends and the impact of demographic change. [...] Nearly all the OECD counties saw rapid demographic change with the size of the 65+ population increasing by 19% between 2015 and 2022. The study concludes that when adjusting for demographic change, the average adjusted increase in the number of deaths for OECD would be +5.3%.  However, looking at many individual countries, such as Ireland, they noticed that there was no increase in excess deaths.  This was because between 2016 and 2022, Ireland's population had increased by 8% and the number of over-65s had risen by 22%.  When taking these changes into account, suddenly all the scary excess deaths that kept Ireland in draconian lockdowns disappeared.

200+ US military demand justice over COVID jab mandates.  Over 200 active duty service members, veterans, and others on January 1 released an open letter demanding accountability from the U.S. military leaders who imposed COVID-19 jab mandates upon members of the armed services, calling out the Department of Defense for "failing to fulfill the moral obligations upon which [it was] founded" in its implementation of the requirements.  On January 1, the current and former servicemen and women representing all branches of the United States military signed onto an open letter promising to pursue accountability for military leaders who they say broke the law in their enforcement of COVID-19 jab rules.
