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]

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.

Editor's note:
The purpose of this page is not to offer medical advice, but to analyze the news.


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:


Note:  Most of the information about the Monkeypox is (temporarily?) located on the Ebola page.


74.2 million people in the USA have not had a single dose of a Covid-19 Vaccine.  President Joe Biden has lied to the American people and is still lying to the American people.  In July 2021, Biden falsely stated that "You're not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations," and "If you're vaccinated, you're not going to be hospitalized, you're not going to be in the ICU unit, and you're not going to die."  Then in December 2021, Biden falsely claimed "This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated.  The unvaccinated.  Not the vaccinated, the unvaccinated.  That's the problem.  Everybody talks about freedom and not to have a shot or have a test.  Well guess what?  How about patriotism?  How about making sure that you're vaccinated, so you do not spread the disease to anyone else."  There is plenty of evidence out there that proves the above statements made by President Biden are outright lies, but the most hilarious evidence of all must be the recent outbreak that occurred due to journalists and Government leaders attending the 'Gridiron Dinner at the beginning of April 2022.  An annual event in Washington DC.  All guests at the event were required to show proof of vaccination.  A week later at least 72 of the 630 fully vaccinated/boosted guests tested positive for Covid-19.

Letter to the U.K. Gov from 76 Doctors.  We are writing to you urgently concerning the announcement that the FDA has granted an Emergency Use Authorization for both Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines in preschool children.  We would urge you to consider very carefully the move to vaccinate ever younger children against SARS-CoV-2, despite the gradual but significant reducing virulence of successive variants, the increasing evidence of rapidly waning vaccine efficacy, the increasing concerns over long-term vaccine harms, and the knowledge that the vast majority of this young age group have already been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 repeatedly and have demonstrably effective immunity.  Thus, the balance of benefit and risk which supported the rollout of mRNA vaccines to the elderly and vulnerable in 2021 is totally inappropriate for small children in 2022.  We also strongly challenge the addition of COVID-19 vaccination into the routine child immunization program despite no demonstrated clinical need, known and unknown risks (see below) and the fact that these vaccines still have only conditional marketing authorization.

Two and 3-year-old kids with seizures is "the new normal".  Doctors are mystified by a rash of seizures, rashes, etc. happening to 2 and 3-year-old kids.  The only thing these kids have in common is that they were given the COVID vaccine just days earlier (two to five days earlier).  The doctors cannot figure out what is causing the seizures (since it couldn't be the vaccine since those are safe and effective).  The medical staff is not permitted to talk about the cases to the press or on social media or they will be fired.  One nurse posted something to the effect of "how is this legal????"  I had to paraphrase to protect the poster.  This is why you are hearing these reports from me.  They can't fire me.  There is nothing on the mainstream media about this since the nurses and doctors aren't allowed to talk about it.  This will all come out some day, but for now, everyone is keeping quiet about it and the doctors are instructed to convince the parents that it isn't vaccine related and that they are the only ones having the problem.

The CDC says "severe reactions" to the COVID vaccines are rare.  That's not what we found.  The CDC has always maintained that severe reactions to the COVID vaccines are rare.  Since I officially became a misinformation spreader over a year ago, I've never believed that statement because I couldn't find any reliable data that confirmed it.  On Jun[e] 20, 2022, VSRF engaged the services of a professional polling company (Pollfish) to survey 500 people who were selected entirely at random.  The implications of what we found in that poll were shocking:  At least 2M Americans over 18 were injured by the COVID vaccine such that they are unable to hold a job.  The US government has never done any research to determine the extent of the injuries caused by the COVID vaccines.  Now we know why.  The results of our poll were consistent with an earlier vaccine injury survey by the Israeli government and with the VAERS data which has been "lit up" since January 2021 telling us "the COVID vaccines are the most unsafe vaccines in human history."  Now we have independent confirmation that the safety signals in VAERS were accurate, just like we've always said.  The numbers in this poll are absolutely shocking and there is no way to spin this as a positive.

Cases of Brain Damage in Children Skyrocket Following COVID-19 Vaccines.  Weakened hearts, blood clots, and now you can add neurological brain damage to the list of side effects being reported in children following COVID-19 vaccinations.  In at least one case, one poor child developed all three conditions.  In a case study published earlier this month (May, 2022) in the Journal of Neuroimmunology, a 15-year-old girl developed encephalopathy, myocarditis, and thrombocytopenia simultaneously following the second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

This is completely off-topic, I'm sure.
Mosquito Borne Viruses On The Rise As Bill Gates Releases Millions Of Genetically Modified Mosquitoes.  Various states across the country have reported an increase in mosquito-borne viruses, some of the viruses are reportedly rare and have little history of being in the United States.  In Georgia, mosquitoes tested positive for a rare disease that has the potential to be deadly. [...] In the Midwest, cases of the Jamestown Canyon Virus, carried by mosquitoes, are on the rise.

Fauci Suffers Covid Symptom Rebound After Course of Pfizer's Paxlovid.  Anthony Fauci, the chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, suffered a rebound of Covid-19 symptoms after taking Pfizer Inc.'s antiviral Paxlovid.  Despite being fully vaccinated and twice-boosted, Fauci contracted Covid earlier this month and was prescribed Paxlovid due to his age — 81 — which puts him at high risk of developing complications.  "After I finished the five days of Paxlovid, I reverted to negative on an antigen test for three days in a row," Fauci said Tuesday during an event at Foreign Policy's Global Health Forum.  "And then on the fourth day, just to be absolutely certain, I tested myself again.  I reverted back to positive."

The Inconvenient Truth About COVID-19 Relief Scandals.  Raise your hand if you're surprised that the trillions of dollars spent on COVID-19 relief gave way to billions of dollars in government waste, fraud and abuses.  I'm not, but based on recent reporting, you might think this type of carelessness with taxpayers' money has never before happened.  Sadly, such waste and fraud are normal byproducts of most government programs.  Too much focus on waste and fraud misses a more important problem:  Lots of the COVID-19 spending that doesn't qualify as wasteful or fraudulent was nonetheless misspent.  When the pandemic hit the United States in March 2020, people all over the country panicked.  Everyone seemed to agree that the right thing to do was pump the nation full of as much money as possible, as fast as possible.  As a result, nearly everyone — married, unmarried, employed, unemployed, through businesses small and large — got cash through the $2 trillion CARES Act.  Some people did raise the potential for fraud.  We were told that there was no time to put in place measures sufficient to prevent it.  However, the CARES Act did create an oversight mechanism called the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee.

Pediatrician Pushing COVID Vax for Kids Under 5 Booted From Florida Board.  A pediatrician who pushed parents to get children under five vaccinated against COVID-19 has been "unceremoniously removed" from the Florida Healthy Kids Board, according to a report from Business Insider.  "On the same day that we began administering COVID-19 vaccine to infants and children under 5, I was removed from the Florida Healthy Kids Board for advocating for equitable access for the underserved and for pediatricians," Dr. Lisa Gwynn, who works within the University of Miami Health System, tweeted earlier this week.  "Disappointing."  Florida is the only state in the union that has not ordered child doses of the COVID vaccine from the government in bulk.  Instead, the Florida Department of Health says it will leave the decision to order the vaccines to individual doctors.

Study Finds Young Moderna Jab Recipients Have a Jaw-Dropping 44X Higher Risk of Developing Myocarditis Than the Unvaccinated.  A peer-reviewed study from researchers in France has concluded that both the experimental Pfizer and Moderna vaccines significantly increase the risk of myocarditis compared to the unvaccinated.  While both mRNA therapies were found to be linked to the life-threatening heart condition, the Moderna jabs results were particularly shocking, especially among young adults, as researchers found the risk for myocarditis diagnosis following the Moderna jab was 44 times higher risk for individuals aged 18 to 24 years old.

Remember Biden's 'summer of freedom' and victory over COVID? No wonder his credibility's shot.  Last July 4, President Joe Biden proclaimed victory over COVID: "Thanks to our heroic vaccine effort, we've gained the upper hand against this virus.  We can live our lives.  We are closer than ever to declaring our independence from a deadly virus."  A few weeks later, Biden promised that people who got vaccinated would not get COVID.  Since last July 4, COVID has killed more than 400,000 Americans.  More than 55 million have been diagnosed with the virus, and there have probably been tens of millions of unconfirmed or unreported cases.  Biden has been more successful decimating freedom than ending the pandemic.  The wreckage of his COVID promises explains much of the collapse of Biden's credibility and approval ratings.

The Cure Was Vastly Worse than the Disease.  The most inexplicable element to this catastrophic global panic is that, anecdotally, I found Covid really, really weird.  Why did I lose my sense of smell so profoundly when this has never happened in a cold or flu before?  It is gone, seemingly for good.  What possible "gain-of-function" experiment caused this symptom?  "Experts" will claim that I was lucky just to lose this.  But I wasn't so lucky when I took my first round of the vaccine and suffered from an endlessly racing heart for two weeks straight — a symptom from which I'm still not sure I've completely recovered.  Finally, there is the brutal stigma associated with the illness itself.  What does one really even say after coming down with this bizarre and altogether benign ailment?  To all the radically woke people at my workplace, some of whom won't even talk to me anymore because I refuse to wear a mask in a mask-optional environment:  saying that it was basically a strange joke of a disease will only raise their ire.

The Age of Deference to Experts Is Over.  From the first weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, media and governments have understandably sought out expert opinion to guide them.  How did that go?  Most of us had never heard from any epidemiologists before 2020, but since then they are quoted nearly every day.  So many media articles start with variations on the same theme — 'Experts have warned that COVID-19 cases are on the rise again,' or 'Experts have called for restrictions to be tightened,' or 'Experts have warned against complacency' about COVID-19.  Experts and the media have worked together to create waves of fear (we are all equally at risk — but we aren't) to justify eternal vigilance, placing our societies on a constant war footing and periodically placing whole populations in home detention.  If the current pandemic is seen to end, they will warn against the next one.  After COVID-19 will come COVID 2024 or 2025.  The distinguished Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben rightly declared: 'A society that lives in a perennial state of emergency cannot be a free society.'

The Mighty Gorsuch vs. the Administrative State:  Quotes from West Virginia vs. EPA.  The power of the administrative state to destroy liberty and property — to blast through legislation, science, and judicial oversight — was never more on display than in the last two and a half years.  One would hope that the deep bureaucracies would have learned their lessons on how not to respond to a new pathogen.  There is no evidence they have.  Regardless, the real problem is much deeper.  It has to do with the status of the administrative state as the effective governing apparatus of the US.  It's not Congress and not the President.  It's the vast and permanent bureaucracy of 432 agencies and 2.9 [million] bureaucrats who are unreachable by any standard of personnel management.

N.J. pharmacist charged with selling fake COVID vaccine cards for $250 to undercover cops.  A pharmacist from Bayonne was arrested after she allegedly sold COVID-19 vaccine records cards to undercover investigators on three occasions for $250 each without giving them the shot, authorities said Friday [7/1/2022].  Christina Bekhit, a licensed pharmacist who runs AllCare Pharmacy on Avenue C, was arrested June 22, according to the Office of the New Jersey General.  She was charged with second-degree computer criminal activity, third-degree tampering with public information and fourth-degree destruction, falsification or alteration of medical care records.

Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, Early COVID Therapeutics Innovator, Dies at 48.  Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a Nobel prize-nominated physician who famously discovered and used an early treatment for COVID, dubbed the "Zelenko Protocol," passed on June 30, 2022, at the age of 48 after a long battle with pulmonary artery sarcoma, a rare form of cancer.  He was born in 1973, in Kyiv, Ukraine, and came to Brooklyn, New York, in 1977 with his family.  Zelenko earned a B.S. in chemistry with high honors at Hofstra University and then earned an M.D. at the Buffalo School of Medicine in 2000.  He had been practicing in Monroe, New York, in 2020 during the outbreak of COVID-19, and is credited with having treated about 7,500 patients with his method.

Dr. Vladimir Zelenko (1973-2022), Rest In Peace.  As a physician who masterfully combined the skills of both critical thinking and the scientific method, and who shaped their application out of his love for both God and patients, Zev was not content to sit back and wait for politicians or public health officials to settle upon a prescribed treatment path.  People were dying.  He began searching almost immediately for a method of treatment.  Aided by initiative, good fortune, and from his account divine intervention, he discovered a treatment in combining Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), zinc, azithromycin, and other various drugs, especially steroids, and creating what has come to be known as the "Zelenko protocol," based on the concept of very early intervention to treat the virus inside the cellular level before it could break loose and develop into a full-blown respiratory disease.  Up to the time of his death, Zev had overseen the treatment of approximately 7,500 patients using his protocol and experienced only three patient deaths.  The use of the Zelenko protocol has spread worldwide.

Immoral Democrats Make Excuses, Blame Others, and Divide.  [Scroll down]  They act first and then make excuses.  Does that sound familiar?  That's the Democrats' notorious "never let a crisis go to waste" mantra.  Did the American people ever get a chance to vote on mask or vaccine mandates?  Were they permitted an opportunity to weigh their personal risks of dying from COVID-19 against the severe economic costs of losing their jobs while large sectors of the nation's economy remained locked down?  Did parents have a choice as to whether their children's schools would be closed and their educations forestalled?  Of course not.  Without even the pretense of consulting American citizens or respecting their constitutional rights, bureaucrats and elected officials closed churches, broke up protests, urged social media companies to censor dissenting points of view, and coerced Americans to take an experimental vaccine before it had undergone normal long-term testing.  All these imperious actions were done for "our own good" and to "save lives" because "we're all in this together."  Yet two-plus years of health mandates have given officials extraordinary powers to control Americans' lives and livelihoods at the expense of Americans' free will.

Why Officials Are Desperate to Get COVID Shots on Childhood Schedule Before 'Emergency' Ends.  Statistics show the rate of COVID-19 associated hospitalization among children aged 5 to 11 is 0.0008%.1 In real-world terms, that's so close to zero you basically cannot lower it any further.  Yet, despite such reassuring data, children in this age group are urged to get two to three doses of the COVID jab, even though side effects of the injection could harm them for life, or kill them.  As noted by the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation[...], myocarditis — one of the recognized effects of the COVID jab — "has a mortality rate of 25% to 56% within three to 10 years, owing to progressive heart failure and sudden cardiac death."  Sudden cardiac death is what the media and public health agencies are now glibly referring to as "sudden adult death syndrome" or SADS.  The older and more appropriate description for SADS is "sudden arrhythmic death syndrome," but they don't even want to use the word "arrhythmic" anymore, as that tells you what the death is really caused by, and many are now aware that the jab can cause heart inflammation.

Dr. Fauci Took Some of His Own Medicine, and It Didn't Go Well.  On June 15, Dr. Anthony Fauci announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19.  It was a long time coming since nearly everyone around him in the White House has tested positive at least once.  In fact, the number of high-profile people with repeated infections is rising — former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and Prince Charles, to name a few.  Of course, what they all had in common was every single COVID jab available to them.  Fauci was no exception.  When he provided an update on his condition during a conference call on June 23, he said, "I had one day of symptomatology.  I started on Wednesday on Paxlovid.  And I was on Paxlovid for five days.  And I have now finished Paxlovid, and I am still feeling really quite fine."  Then he gave the obligatory nod to the treatments he has advocated and even supported mandating for others.

Life Insurance CEO Reveals Deaths Are Up 40% Among Working People:  "Just unheard of".  Lincoln National has grown to be the fifth-largest life insurance company in America.  However, things aren't so hot right now for the life insurance business — evidenced by the fact that in 2021, Lincoln National reported a 163 percent increase in death benefits that were paid out under their group life insurance policies.

Ted Cruz tears into Sesame Street for 'aggressively advocating' vaccinating children under five.  Sen. Ted Cruz's war on Sesame Street resumed Tuesday after the Texas Republican saw that the fictional muppet Elmo had been vaccinated against COVID-19.  'Thanks, @sesamestreet for saying parents are allowed to have questions!  You then have @elmo aggressively advocate for vaccinating children UNDER 5,' Cruz tweeted.  'But you cite ZERO scientific evidence for this.'  Elmo, who's been a Sesame Street character for decades, is only age 3.

The Republican Party has been talking about defunding PBS for decades.  It can't be done, for two reasons.  PBS is a sacred cow that nobody wants to touch, and the Republicans haven't defunded anything I can remember.

What's With the Democrats' Abortion Obsession?  The whole abortion thing kind of baffles me because it is absolutely bizarre that anyone would choose this particular hill to die on or, rather, to kill a bunch of babies on. [...] They have no problem telling people what they can and can't do as a principle.  So why did libs choose pro instead of con?  It's not about freedom.  They're against that.  And it's not about some sort of highfalutin' commitment to "bodily integrity."  These are the same people who wanted you to be a testbed for every potion and poultice Pfizer and the rest of the Big Pharma folks created to address a somewhat more dangerous strain of the flu.  If you didn't inject it, you were a bad person of badness and you should be thrown out of your job, denied schooling, and possibly even jailed.  Also, wear your mask.

Germany's experience with Covid 'vaccines' suggests they increase Omicron infections.  The former East Germany has a lower vaccination rate than the former West Germany and this has resulted in a lower incidence of the latest covid variant.  It seems, though the Berlin Wall fell more than 30 years ago, the former East Germans have a memory of distrusting government pronouncements and edicts, for self-preservation.  This instinct has served them well at a time when the only reason governments bother to tell us anything is in order to lie to us.  As well as making pronouncements and issuing edicts, government health officials can lead by example.  The world's leading health bureaucrat, Anthony Fauci, has had four doses of spike protein (labelled as vaccinations) and is thus — if Germany's experience is any guide — more likely to be infected with covid than if he had remained unvaccinated.  He has duly contracted covid and it seems that it is not a mild case because he elected to take a course of paxlovid.

What's going on with our commercial airlines?  We've never had a pilot shortage before.  We may currently have more air travelers needing flights than a year ago, but not more than before COVID — and yet, here we are, facing an entirely new problem.  It's so bad that American Airlines is offering pilots on its regional carriers double and triple pay for the month of July if they'll take extra flights.  It's not hard to figure out what's happening — despite the seeming prohibition on our pilots saying anything about it.  We rarely hear a peep from them, at least on mainstream news outlets. [...] Let's put the blame for this shortage squarely where it belongs:  On COVID "vaccination" policy.  Many pilots who got the jabs are suffering injuries and have been unable to pass their required 6-month comprehensive physicals.  None of us want a pilot who has a heart attack mid-flight.  If you search the net, you come up with reports like this one from last week that pretty much says it all but they're not from mainstream sources, of course.  Such reports are forbidden fruit for widely heard reporters.

Anthony Fauci says that he's experienced rebound Covid symptoms after taking a Pfizer's antiviral Paxlovid.  Dr. Anthony Fauci confirmed on Tuesday that he is suffering from 'Covid rebound' symptoms after being treated with Paxlovid.  Paxlovid, a drug that was anointed as America's silver bullet against COVID-19 by some health officials and even President Joe Biden, may not have any effectiveness for people that are already vaccinated, according its manufacturer Pfizer's own data.  Fauci, 81, broke the news while speaking remotely at the Foreign Policy Global Health Forum.

First Vaccine Death Pay-Out in the UK.  More than a year after 48-year-old rock singer Zion died after receiving an AstraZeneca jab, his fiancé, Vikki Spit, became the first person in the UK to receive compensation for a COVID-19 vaccine death.  Zion started to get headaches eight days after getting the injection, and these became so severe that a few days later he suffered a seizure and was admitted to hospital.  He died after undergoing surgery just two weeks after being vaccinated.  The amount Spit received was around $147,000, which is the maximum compensation level set under the Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme of 1979.  But, as that was established 43 years ago, she feels this is an inadequate amount.  Before the pharmaceutical giants would release their experimental COVID-19 vaccines in the UK, they demanded immunity from claims due to death or injury caused by their product.

Survey: More Than 750,000 Dead, 30 Million Injured Because of Covid Vax.  The United States federal bodies responsible for the nation's healthcare policies keep turning a blind eye to the devastating number of deaths and injuries associated with experimental gene therapeutics against Covid, aka Covid vaccines.  All severe reactions to the shots are proclaimed "rare."  Steve Kirsch, California tech entrepreneur and founder of the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation (VSRF), has estimated that the shots have left as many as five million Americans unable to work, 30 million injured, and more than 750,000 dead, as of June 24, 2022.  According to the latest survey conducted by Pollfish on behalf of the VSRF, vaccines are associated with a very high number of adverse reactions, including lethal and life-altering ones.  That means that the vaccinations should be halted immediately.

Leftists ignore contradictions regarding abortion and vaccines.  [Scroll down]  Ironically, those same, currently rioting Progressives are determined to make sure nobody has the right to make other health decisions for themselves, especially when it comes to their precious pandemic.  Facts are censored and scientists silenced.  The show of bureaucratic power must go on.  They forget, completely, that their abortion argument would be more valid when applied to our right to bodily autonomy with the COVID fiasco.  It's obvious, if you look at actual, uncensored facts, that incorrect, dictatorial bureaucratic shutdowns and forced "vaccination" have perpetuated the pandemic and unnecessarily destroyed the health and businesses of countless citizens, young and old[.]  We can't walk into a store without a mask if the county or state health department so dictates.  We can't keep a job without the COVID jab, no matter that we are needed, want to work, and know beyond a doubt that the "vaccine" doesn't work at all.  We, here in California, if the state gets its way, will have zero "right" to keep our children from being pressured to take the jab at age 15, without needing parental consent.  We've had to show "vaccine passports" for long periods of time — again, despite that 100% certain fact that the "vaccine" is detrimental to our health.  Now, they want to give it to babies.

More pandemics to come thanks to climate change, industrial development and inequality, 'experts' say.  While President Biden was recently praising his government for trying to ensure that kids as young as 6-months-old get injected with an experimental mRNA "vaccine" that doesn't work and has proven to be dangerous, he also flatly stated that "There's going to be another pandemic."  Maybe Democrats will get "lucky" and one will break out in the weeks leading up to the November 8th election.  But, hey, many "experts" are predicting an increase in outbreaks of pestilence and disease.  To wit: according to a recent report on France 24, the World Health Organization's (WHO) emergencies director Michael Ryan said, "The number of times that these diseases cross into humans is increasing.  Then our ability to amplify that disease and move it on within our communities is increasing."  Stated Greg Albery, a disease ecologist at Georgetown University, "We need improved surveillance both in urban and wild animals so that we can identify when a pathogen has jumped from one species to another."  Ah, more surveillance.

Feds: YOU must be vaxxed — but WE don't have to be.  In January, a 5-4 Supreme Court decision ruled that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services could continue requiring the healthcare providers and suppliers it certified to ensure their staff — including employees, volunteers and anyone else providing care — are vaccinated against COVID-19 if they wanted to remain eligible for federal funding.  Initially, the surveyors who oversee compliance with this mandate were also required to be vaccinated, but in a June 16 memo, CMS simply gave them a pass:  This "guidance does not include any possibilities of penalties for noncompliance," and the federal government "prohibits facilities from inquiring about surveyor vaccination status," it wrote.  Meaning:  The government's own mandate enforcers aren't expected to follow the very rules they're enforcing.

Modern Medical Ethics and How They Relate to Roe vs. Wade.  [Scroll down]  Similar degrees of gross ethical malfeasance regularly occur within the federal government.  In a recent article, I reviewed some of the truly evil experiments Anthony Fauci has conducted on vulnerable civilians, and his refusal to ever come clean to the experimental participants over the fact he was being paid handsomely to experiment on them.  Many more are discussed within The Real Anthony Fauci, an excellent book that overlaps with many of the areas discussed in the first phase of this substack.  I do not believe I am exaggerating when I claim that Anthony Fauci is the individual who has had the greatest influence on scientific research in the United States, something quite concerning given the complete lack of ethics in many of his studies.  When I reviewed that story before, I left out the most incredulous part — since 1996 his wife has served as the chief bioethicist of the United States and for some reason still has not gotten around to addressing the ethical lapses of her spouse.

Australia among western nations with highest number of covid cases.  Australia has been labelled a "complete flop" for wasting two years on lockdowns only to lead the western world in Covid-19 cases.  An analysis of daily new confirmed cases of coronavirus shows that as of this week Australia's seven-day rolling average is 1,100 cases per million people.  That is higher than the United States, the United Kingdom, France and Italy, as well as dozens of other western nations.  The European average is just 398 cases per million people.

Astonishing Testimony From Dr. Birx Lost Amid Landmark SCOTUS Rulings.  With several controversial SCOTUS rulings addressing divisive issues like gun rights and abortion, an exchange between Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Dr. Debra Birx during a congressional hearing on Thursday [6/23/2022] escaped scrutiny.  However, if a power-hungry politician, university, or employer compelled you or someone you love to receive an experimental vaccine in the last two years, it may make you furious.  And Birx should be ashamed of herself for not speaking out earlier.  The House Oversight and Reform Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis held a hearing with Birx Thursday morning.  Jordan questioned Birx on the United States' participation in and funding of the World Health Organization and gain-of-function research.  Birx was candid, saying that the United States should withhold funding from the WHO until needed reforms occur.  She also said that the U.S. should not participate in some gain-of-function research, such as any in China.

A mass exodus from the Democrats' America.  As the Washington Examiner reported this week, the end of the COVID-19 pandemic has done nothing to arrest the trend of people fleeing large cities in liberal coastal states for more pleasant and orderly locales, particularly in the Mountain West and the Sun Belt.  A mixture of unreasonable pandemic restrictions, rising crime, lawlessness, and hostility toward employers has forced this continued urban exodus. [...] It is hardly a coincidence that all 15 of the 15 fastest-growing cities and towns between July 2020 and July 2021 are in states that Republicans govern:  Arizona, Texas, Florida, Tennessee, and Idaho.  And 14 out of the 15 fastest-declining cities during the same period were in states that Democrats governed at the time.  What towns and cities gaining population generally have in common both before and during COVID-19 is that they live under laws made by Republicans.  What towns and cities losing population have in common is that they live under laws made by Democrats.  Not all Democratic states and cities are equally anti-business, but COVID-19 helped bring out the totalitarian side of many state and city governments, driving away and keeping away many former and prospective residents.

Pfizer CEO Says Annual COVID Vaccine Booster is Almost a Certainty.  This brief soundbite from last week is somewhat of a precursor to the points raised by Neil Oliver this week.  The financial interests of the Big Rx corporations are directly tied to government.  This is the origin of the biggest issue behind government mandating the forced vaccination program for SARS-CoV-2 and any COVID-19 variant.  The adverse medical consequences from the COVID-19 vaccination program are only just now starting to surface while the government and Rx corporations continue to hide data showing adverse impacts.  At the same time as this massive conflict of interest and general health controversy is being debated, Pfizer CEO Albert Poula says he is "almost certain" that mandatory vaccine boosters will be part of the requirement by government each year.  [Video clip]

Neil Oliver Outlines Madness of New Push to Vaccinate Children 6 Months to 5 Years Old.  In this week's discussion monologue, Neil Oliver outlines a recent push by U.S. and U.K. authorities to vaccinate children under 5-years of age.  Despite almost zero risk to their health from COVID-19 or any variant, in the U.S. the FDA has recently approved vaccinations for babies 6-months and older.  Mr. Oliver notes the risk vs reward in this health protocol is ridiculous on its face.  There is no substantive risk from COVID19 to any healthy child or young adult, yet the government institutions of healthcare are seemingly blind to the medical evidence.  [Video clip]

The Truth Lion Cometh.  [Scroll down]  OK, just to put a fork in it and call it done, this means that the fact that the vaccines were not effective at preventing infection, replication, and transmission of the virus were known to the Response Coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Task Force during the Trump administration, and furthermore, Dr. Birx explicitly acknowledged that the clinical trials were not designed to assess whether the genetic vaccines could enable herd immunity (to achieve which requires a product that can block or seriously reduce transmissibility of the pathogen).  Therefore, these facts were known by Dr. Birx well before the time when the Washington Post was accusing me of being a liar for stating precisely this truth on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.  Of course Youtube has deleted videos of that speech, but it can still be found on Rumble, and the prepared text is still available [elsew]here. [...] Just to reinforce the point, the US Constitution does not mention regulation of public health or medical practice as a Federal Government role or responsibility, and therefore the right to manage public health and medical practice practices vests with the States, not with unelected federal bureaucrats such as Dr. Birx and her mentor Dr. Fauci.  There must be accountability and restitution for the damages incurred to those who were mandated by the US Federal Government to receive the unlicensed, Emergency Use Authorized products.

Why the trillions in COVID-19 relief money led to billions in fraud.  Raise your hand if you're surprised that the trillions of dollars spent on COVID-19 relief gave way to billions of dollars in government waste, fraud and abuses.  I'm not, but based on recent reporting, you might think this type of carelessness with taxpayers' money has never before happened.  Sadly, such waste and fraud are normal byproducts of most government programs.  Too much focus on waste and fraud misses a more important problem:  Lots of the COVID-19 spending that doesn't qualify as wasteful or fraudulent was nonetheless misspent.  When the pandemic hit the United States in March 2020, people all over the country panicked.  Everyone seemed to agree that the right thing to do was pump the nation full of as much money as possible, as fast as possible.  As a result, nearly everyone — married, unmarried, employed, unemployed, through businesses small and large — got cash through the $2 trillion CARES Act.

USAF Pilot Facing Discharge for Rejecting COVID Vaccine.  USAF pilot Lt. John Bowes dreamt of flying and protecting the country his entire life — since he was a child.  He is heartbroken now that he had to put his religious faith over his dream due to the COVID vaccine mandates within the U.S. military, but believes that God is helping him get through the tribulation and that he has a duty to speak up.  The 24-year-old was an F-16 student pilot but was taken out of training and prevented from flying since September of last year when he first submitted his religious accommodation.  "I exercised my constitutional and statutory right to receive a religious accommodation.  And then I was, as a direct consequence of doing that, removed from training to fly the F-16.  I personally believe that is religious discrimination," Bowes told The Epoch Times.  He made clear that his views are not representative of the USAF.

Vaccines — Are They Still Contributing to the Greater Good?  We are republishing articles from past years that remain eerily relevant in today's unprecedented climate.  The multiple award-winning documentary, "The Greater Good," was initially released in 2011.  We published it on our site for the first time seven years ago.  This article has now been viewed a million times.  Ten years since the films debut, the tragic truth about the toxic effects of vaccines on brain and immune system health that was revealed in this groundbreaking film is as just as true today as it was when it was first shown in film festivals around the U.S.  It's incredibly important to view this documentary in the context of the mass COVID-19 injection campaign, in which the public is being coerced and forced via mandates to accept a largely experimental injection.  While many experts have spoken out that the risks of the COVID-19 jabs are too great for many populations, including children and young people, pregnant women and people who are already naturally immune, health officials are still pushing the jabs for "the greater good."

Sudden Adult [Vaccine] Death Syndrome:  Excess Deaths in Australia are up 18% since the start of 2022.  According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), 44,331 deaths occurred by the 27th of March 2022, which is 6,609 more deaths than the historical average, equating to an 18% rise in deaths.  However, of the 44,331 deaths to have occurred by 27th March, just 2,903 deaths were associated with Covid-19, equating to just 6% of all deaths.

New preprint study showing non-vaccinated less likely to be hospitalized is republished on MSN.com, then quickly taken down.  COVID-19 is the largest and the most comprehensive psychological operation in human history.  Narratives are meticulously controlled.  Propaganda is persistent.  Fear is key to the success of this psy-op.  But ultimately mainstream media propaganda channels are run by humans who either experience mea culpas or simply make critical errors that could potentially awaken the lambs.  Microsoft is now cleaning up one of those errors that caused major upheaval among vaxx zealots.  The Control Group Cooperative (CGC) was formed in July 2021.  The founders recognized that traditional research universities and organizations refuse to do studies comparing the health of vaccinated versus non-vaccinated populations.  Dr. Robert Verkerk of the Alliance for Natural Health International, led a team that analyzed the CGC data, that currently includes over 305,000 non-vaccinated study participants in 175 countries.  They are all provided ID cards that identify them as clinical subjects and thus "must not be vaccinated."

45-Year-Old Canadian Paralyzed After Pfizer Shot Waiting for Government to Respond.  More than 11 months after becoming paralyzed from the waist down 12 days after getting his second dose of a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, Julian Scholefield is waiting for the Canadian government's decision on his request for compensation.  "I'm paralyzed now, not because of a reckless accident, but because I followed the guidelines of our government, and so that validation and recognition is definitely something that would mean a lot to me," Scholefield told CBC News.  Scholefield, a 45-year-old in British Columbia, was diagnosed with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), a rare neurological disorder that causes inflammation of the brain and spinal cord that damages myelin — the protective covering of nerve fibers.

Doctors question kids' vax as U.K. research shows minuscule COVID risk.  The quality of evidence for the FDA's emergency use authorization (EUA) of COVID-19 vaccines for children as young as 6 months is drawing scrutiny from high-profile doctors and academics, some of whom are asking the White House not to pressure parents to vaccinate.  With CDC seroprevalence data from February finding 75% of minors had natural immunity, more attention is going to the risk/benefit calculation of vaccines for the age group at lowest risk from COVID.  Parents on the fence may find their hesitancy reaffirmed by new studies, not yet peer-reviewed, on the COVID infection fatality rate (IFR) by age and underlying health conditions and "serious adverse events of interest" following mRNA vaccination.

Growing Revolt Among Medical Practitioners Against Vaccinating Toddlers for Covid.  IM Doc has been particularly unhappy about the push to deploy the Covid mRNA vaccines in children under five years of age.  Based on his many years working on an Institutional Review Board, he believe the bar for safety testing for children, particularly very young ones, is high, and it has not been met for these vaccines.  It turns out he is far from alone.  It appears many medical practitioners are seeing vaccinating kids this young as a bridge too far and some are flat out refusing to administer them.

Deranged COVID-clingers still want Broadway-goers to be put through Rikers-like procedures.  It is hard to think of any sector of the economy that made itself more dislikeable than the theater industry during the era of COVID.  Restaurants easily dropped the vaccine mandates and mask demands.  They became welcoming to customers again.  Even the airline companies ended up lifting the mask mandates and, just like the restaurants, people sat close together with no spike in infections.  But New York's theaters held onto their masks for dear life.  I sometimes wondered whether the last two places on earth that everyone would still mask would be Broadway and the offices of NPR.  But now — miracle of miracles — it has just been announced that Broadway's theaters will go "mask optional" from July 1.  Yet much of theater-land reacted badly.  One playwright and actor immediately tweeted "Make no mistake:  the end of the Broadway mask mandates will wreak havoc in New York Theater.  It's an unacceptable attack on the safety of theater workers."

COVID-19 Vaccination Reactivates Highly Contagious Virus:  Studies.  Doctors and scientists are seeing an increase in the reactivation of the chickenpox virus, known as varicella-zoster virus (VZV), following the COVID-19 injections.  The chickenpox virus is one of the eight herpes viruses known to infect humans.  After a person contracts and recovers from chickenpox, the virus never leaves the body but lies dormant in the nervous system for life.  The chickenpox virus will show up as shingles, or herpes zoster (HZ) when it gets reactivated.  Federal health authorities claim that there's no correlation between COVID-19 injections and shingles, but studies show that there is a higher incidence of shingles in people who've received the vaccine.

Austria Drops COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate, Admits Causing Social Division.  The nation of Austria has suspended its controversial COVID-19 vaccine mandate, with government officials citing concerns about the policy infringing on individual freedoms.  Ministers for health and constitutional affairs announced the move on June 22nd, just six days before individuals who failed to comply with the policy would have begun receiving fines for their decision.  The measure was the most comprehensive mandate within the European Union, as it applied to all adults with virtually no exceptions.  It had been in effect since February 5th, 2022, but enforcement formally began on March 15th, 2022[.]

Finding our Way Through a Wilderness of Mirrors.  The creation of the COVID-19 pandemic brought about an inversion of best practices and the suppression of dissent throughout all divisions of the Department of Health and Human Services — the largest federal bureaucracy.  While there was uncertainty of how to handle the new China virus strain in the beginning, we learned a lot quickly.  First, we realized that PCR testing was fundamentally flawed and drove high numbers of false positive COVID diagnoses, yet it continued to be the primary testing standard — the likely explanation for which was that it boosted the pandemic fear factor and contributed to the mass acceptance of universal vaccination.  Second, more money was given to hospitals that reported COVID deaths than reported death from other causes — the likely explanation for which was again to boost the mortality numbers and pandemic fear factor so as to herd people into vaccination.  Third, doctors' Hippocratic oath was nullified by denying them the option of prescribing safe FDA-approved therapeutic medications effective in treating COVID — the likely explanation for which was that it kept the pandemic narrative going and narrowed treatment options to vaccination.

Technocracy 101: If Fed and CDC Are 'Independent,' Elections Mean Nothing.  Basic civics recap: the US president, per the Constitution, is the elected executive.  That means he is tasked with executing government functions.  He is granted — again, through a theoretically democratic election process — the authority to dictate government activities within the confines of the laws.  The legislative branch passes laws; the judicial branch vets them for constitutionality; the executive implements them.  The process, as designed, is not at all vague.  How odd, then, that the Biden White House press secretaries — first Jen Psaki and now the admitted diversity hire Karine Jean-Pierre — repeatedly undermine their own president's executive authority.  Whenever they're asked about Federal Reserve or CDC (Centers for Disease Control) policies — government agencies under the umbrella of executive authority — they refuse to give a straight answer on the grounds that the government body in question is "independent."  The WH has the same hands-off approach to the dictates of the CDC and the shadowy, unelected "experts" who set its policies.

Biden Announces a New Plandemic Right before the Midterm Elections.  The Democrats aren't even bothering to hide it anymore.  They need lockdowns and mail-in ballots to have a chance at winning the next election — and that's exactly what they're planning.  [Video clip]

Aviation Industry Calls Out 'HOSTILE' Environment Vaccine-Injured Pilots Must Endure.  One of the biggest industries that fought against Covid-19 vaccine mandates was the aviation industry — more specifically pilots.  According to a report from Natural News, commercial airline pilots were routinely "disrespected, grounded, and forced to comply with destructive medical experiments" throughout the whole duration of the vaccination requirements controversy.  Which forced many pilots into early retirement.

Science magazine admits covid "vaccines" are useless and harmful.  British researchers say that Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) "vaccines" do not provide any real protection against the latest "variant" of the disease, which the establishment is calling "Omicron" (Moronic).  A new paper published in the magazine Science reveals that both antibody and T-cell protection are nowhere to be found post-injection.  Meanwhile, the shots leave behind mystery substances inside a person's body, often leading to chronic illness or early death.  Another thing the paper found is that the "fully vaccinated" are suffering so-called "breakthrough" infections with Moronic, as their T-cell response is now artificially tuned towards earlier variants of the disease such as Delta.

Report: CDC Is Not Monitoring VAERS for Covid Vax Safety Signals.  Experimental gene therapeutics against Covid, aka Covid vaccines, have been prescribed and often mandated to all "eligible" Americans.  Just recently, the recommendation to take them has been expanded to include infants as young as six months old.  Federal health authorities and the Biden administration continue to claim the shots are "lifesaving" and "safe and effective."  Apparently though, the claim of safety is speculative at best, since the government admitted it has been ignoring post-marketing adverse reactions submitted to its primary monitoring database.  According to a report posted by Children's Health Defense (CHD) on Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), whose mission is to "increase the health security of our nation," did not pay attention to its vaccine-safety system called the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) when it came to Covid shots.

American Board of Internal Medicine:  "There shall be no public accountability on our decision to de-certify Dr. McCullough".  ABIM contacted Dr. Peter McCullough in a letter dated May 26, 2022[,] notifying him he is accused of spreading misinformation and started an investigation to remove his board certification. [...] Senator Ron Johnson heard about the letter and sent a letter dated June 15 to Dr. Richard Baron, President & CEO of the ABIM where he politely offered to host an expert panel of doctors in Washington DC to resolve what the science actually says, similar to the widely popular "A second opinion" panel he hosted, but this time with scientists on both sides. [...] Note that Johnson's original panel invited scientists on all sides but nobody was willing to support the false narrative so it ended up being one-sided, but not for lack of trying.  ABIM refused Johnson's offer.  Dr. Baron sent Senator Johnson a "thanks but no thanks" reply saying they are perfectly capable of disciplining Dr. McCullough, without any outside assistance.  Dr. Baron said that the discipline procedure is private (even though McCullough waives all privacy), ABIM doesn't want anyone to know.  ABIM and its appointed panel of doctors will make all decisions on de-certification.  They do not need to hear from scientists with opposing views on what constitutes misinformation, nor do they want to.  In other words, ABIM will make scientific assessments in private, behind closed doors, using a panel they appoint.  They will not be held accountable to any public scrutiny.  So there!

End Vaccine Mandates for Summer Travel.  Last Friday was the busiest travel day of the year so far, but hundreds of thousands of airline passengers were stranded by flight cancellations.  Including last Thursday, more than 35,000 flights in the United States were canceled or delayed over the holiday weekend.  Nearly a third of all flights last Thursday and Friday were late in arriving.  At least those travelers ultimately reached their destination, except where delays caused passengers to miss a connecting flight and then be stuck overnight in an unfamiliar city.  Hundreds of passengers were grounded at the Atlanta airport for more than 24 hours.  One mother with an 11-month-old daughter was stranded without infant formula, which had gone with their checked bag to Omaha.

Rock musician's fiancee will become first person in UK to receive £120,000 Covid vaccine damage payment.  A rock musician's fiancée will become the first person in the UK to receive £120,000 Covid vaccine damage payment after the 48-year-old died from a blood clot following his AstraZeneca jab.  The singer, known as Lord Zion, fell ill with an agonising headache on May 13 last year- eight days after having the first jab, at Penrith Auction Mart in Cumbria.  He died at Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, on May 19.

Biden Says White House Needs More Money for Next Pandemic.  Earlier today, touting vaccines for babies and children 6months through 5 years of age, Joe Biden explained they needed more taxpayer money to give to pharmaceutical lobbyists to pay for vaccines and organize the next pandemic.  [Video clip]

26-Yr-Old NFL Player Dies Unexpectedly:  Cause of Death Is "Unknown".  26-yr-old Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson has died.  Like so many young celebrities and athletes who've been unexpectedly dropping dead around the world, Ferguson's cause of his death is "unknown."  While Ferguson's COVID vaccination status is unknown (as it should be), many people around the world are questioning the stunning number of healthy teens and young adult athletes who received the COVID jab and later died unexpectedly.  On July 22, 2021, the NFL sent a strong message to its players regarding the COVID vaccine, letting them know that while they are not mandating that players accept the experimental jab, they would be severely punished by being held responsible for the financial losses a team would incur if they had to cancel a game over a COVID outbreak and that the NFL commissioner may also levy additional punitive actions.

Neil Oliver Stays Focused, the Questions We are Not Allowed to Ask.  In his monologue this week Neil Oliver hits the target so perfectly he deserves extra appreciation.  You see, like many[,] including us, Oliver refuses to just let the two years of COVID madness disappear in the ether as if it didn't exist, simply because the elites now find the questioning a little too uncomfy.  For two years they shoved their intolerant fingers in our faces, destroyed lives and livelihoods, made ridiculous demands in order to sustain their own fear, threatened our children, destroyed the economy, used COVID as an excuse to destroy families and steal an election, attempted to force us to kneel at the altar of their mask wearing and never-ending vaccine [npnsense,] and we're just supposed to what, forgive them?  Fat chance.  [Video clip] [...] Those who perpetrated these two years of hell need to be held to account, and unfortunately, this type of accountability is so severe in consequence there can be no quarter provided or terms which might provide even the most remote possibility of a reoccurrence.  It is uncomfortable to accept that our response needs to be of such severity that our children will be witness to a visible anger they did not know their parents were capable of.  But witness they must if we are to ensure these vile and intolerant leftist creatures are destroyed forever.  I would rather provide the opportunity for my children to forgive me, than to see them forever living in a hopeless land of totalitarianism where freedom and liberty have been dispatched from their lives.  At least in the former their choice is possible.

New study: 133x risk of myocarditis after COVID vaccination.  A recent study published on January 25, 2022, on JAMA Network, has shown that the risk of myocarditis following mRNA COVID vaccination is around 133 times greater than the background risk in the population.  The study, conducted by researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as from several U.S. universities and hospitals, examined the effects of vaccination with products manufactured by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna.  The study's authors used data obtained from the CDC's VAERS reporting system which were cross-checked to ensure they complied with CDC's definition of myocarditis; they also noted that given the passive nature of the VAERS system, the number of reported incidents is likely to be an underestimate of the extent of the phenomenon.  1626 cases of myocarditis were studied, and the results showed that the Pfizer-BioNTech product was most associated with higher risk, with 105.9 cases per million doses after the second vaccine shot in the 16 to 17 age group for males, and 70.7 cases per million doses after the second shot in the 12 to 15 age group for males.  The 18 to 24 male age group also saw significantly higher rates of myocarditis for both Pfizer's and Moderna's products (52.4 and 56.3 cases per million respectively).

Watchdog Finds 69 Percent of NIH Grantees Don't Report All Foreign Ties.  Nearly three-fourths of National Institutes of Health (NIH) grantees fail to properly report their researchers' ties to foreign countries and companies, according to an investigation by the Department of Health and Human Services Inspector General (HHS-IG).  "More than two-thirds of grantees failed to meet one or more requirements for investigators' disclosure of all foreign financial interests and support.  These problems often involved requirements to disclose non-publicly traded equity interests from foreign entities and to disclose in-kind resources, professional affiliations, or participation in a foreign 'talents' program," reads the HHS-IG report, which was made public earlier in June.  "Investigators" are the researchers, scientists, and other individuals conducting research being supported with federal tax dollars received by grantees from NIH.

Here's more evidence that the COVID pandemic was a massive vacation for hundreds of thousands of federal workers.  The United States government takes in so much money, is so massive, and so bloated that there literally is hardly any effort at all to make employees accountable.  That fact was laid bare again recently by a report in the Washington Free Beacon pertaining to federal worker behaviors during the years-long COVID-19 'pandemic' which, for hundreds of thousands of them turned out to be a massive paid vacation.  "In the first months of the coronavirus pandemic, a quarter of employees at the federal government's top health agency failed to even check their emails as they worked remotely, according to internal documents" obtained by the outlet.  And if this occurred at one federal agency, you can be sure it occurred at nearly all of them (of which there are currently 432).

Biden Lets Cat out of the Bag About the 'Second Pandemic'.  [Scroll down]  "We need more money to plan for the second pandemic.  There's going to be another pandemic," Biden said.  "We have to think ahead.  And that's not something the last outfit did very well.  That's something we've been doing fairly well.  That's why we need the money."  I don't know about you, but that didn't sound like "we need more to plan for any eventuality in the future," that sounded like he knows a "second" pandemic is coming — that they're planning for a second pandemic.  He wasn't saying it might come, he's saying it will come.  So, what does he know here?  Can we expect it will arrive just in time, conveniently, before the midterm elections?  Of course, he's always looking to spend our money at every opportunity.  But the other height of folly here is his description of how the "last outfit" did with the pandemic compared to how he has done.  Talk about some rip-roaring lies.  The "last outfit" are the people who came up with the vaccines and the plans.  They're the ones who had to deal with all the real problems at the start of the pandemic.

Masks Have Worn Down Children's Immune Systems.  Children are turning up in doctors' clinics infected with as many as three different types of viruses, in what experts believe is the result of their immune systems being weakened from two years of COVID lockdowns and mask-wearing.  Medical staff have come to expect a surge in cases of flu and severe colds during the winter.  But they are reporting that there is not the usual downturn as summer approaches — and they suspect it could be due to the strict pandemic practices.  Furthermore, some of common strains of the flu appear to have disappeared, flummoxing scientists. [...] The rhinovirus, known as the common cold, is normally not severe enough to send people to hospital — but now it is.  RSV normally tapers off in the warmer weather, as does the influenza, but they have not.

1,287,595 Injuries Reported After COVID Shots, Vaccine Injury Compensation Programs 'Overwhelmed'.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released new data showing a total of 1,287,595 reports of adverse events following COVID-19 vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 27, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).  That's an increase of 9,615 adverse events over the previous week.  VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.  The data included a total of 28,532 reports of deaths — an increase of 220 over the previous week — and 235,041 serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 2,347compared with the previous week.  Excluding "foreign reports" to VAERS, 825,454 adverse events, including 13,150 deaths and 83,454 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 27, 2022.

White House Covid coordinator tells parents to vaccinate their children even if they have immunity from a previous infection.  The White House's chief covid coordinator is recommending that young children who have already been infected with the virus still get vaccinated — even as data shows they suffer limited risk of hospitalization and death and that natural immunity is effective at preventing the worst outcomes.  The shots' rollout began on Tuesday, marking the youngest and final age group to be made eligible for the vaccines after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) both did green-lighted the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna shots for children six months to five years old last week.  Dr Ashish Jha, the White House's COVID-19 response coordinator, told CBS Tuesday morning that he recommends parents to get their children vaccinated, even if the child has natural immunity from a previous Covid infection — for which CDC data shows around 70 percent of U.S. minors have.

Fauci is Back with a Warning for Americans: 'Wear a Mask' When You're Indoors.  Dr. Anthony Fauci, fresh off of an epic beatdown in the Senate from Senator Rand Paul, is back with a warning for America about the fizzled out Covid-19 pandemic.  It's not over yet.  [Video clip]

So, Why, Exactly, Should We Vote Republican?  [Scroll down]  As of this moment, if not for the media reminding us that Republican politicians still exist, we could be forgiven for thinking that there is no Republican Party in America (if, that is, the GOP were the viable alternative to the Democrats that it is made out to be).  Think about it:  For over two years, the world was brought to a standstill as national economies were wrecked, global supply chains destroyed, and the lives of countless men, women — and, yes, children — ruined in every conceivable way in the name of combatting a virus.  Constitutional liberties were indefinitely revoked and all of those "little platoons," as Burke referred to the civic organizations and communities that shield individuals from the state and invest their lives with meaning, were systematically and systemically undermined.  Republicans not only did nothing to prevent these crimes against humanity — they were complicit in fueling the narrative that made this destruction possible.  Now that the Democrats recognize that COVID is no longer good business, they're moving on from the incalculable harm that they've inflicted upon the planet's population via this unprecedented power grab to do more harm under the pretext of other causes.  And Republicans and conservative pundits seem just fine with this.  To repeat, an historically unprecedented exercise of power occurred in 2020 — the country was, essentially, interned — and to judge from the silence of Republicans, the latter are perfectly comfortable with the prospect of Anthony Fauci retiring and traipsing off into the sunset in 2024.

Pfizer's COVID Vaccine Reduces Sperm Count in Men, Another Adverse Affect Of The Forced Vaccine Tyranny.  According to a recently released medical study, in a group of 37 sperm donors, across 220 samples collected, the impact of the mRNA COVID vaccine, BNT162b2 produced by Pfizer, caused men to experience a drop in fertility of more than 20%.  For more than two years now, experts have tried to deny that the FDA-approved Pfizer vaccine might impact fertility in both men and women.  In a report by NPR in 2021, experts referred to the claims as a "scare tactic" aimed at discouraging individuals from getting vaccinated.  The article states that such false claims "specifically seek to undermine trust in Pfizer... despite the decades of research."  Albeit there have not been decades of research related to mRNA COVID vaccines, a false claim by the mainstream media outlet.

White House Health Official Makes False Claim About COVID-19 Vaccines.  A White House official made a false claim on June 20 about COVID-19 vaccines while encouraging parents to get their young children vaccinated.  Dr. Ashish Jha, the White House's COVID-19 response coordinator, said that "there have not been any serious side effects of these vaccines," which isn't true.  Severe allergic reactions, blood clotting, heart inflammation, and paralysis are among the serious side effects linked to the three COVID-19 vaccines that are available in the United States.  "There is a well-documented risk of myocarditis from the COVID vaccine, especially in young men and adolescent boys, and an elevated risk of clotting in young women with the Moderna vaccine," Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford University, told The Epoch Times in an email.

Fauci Refuses To 'Stop Funding Chinese' Research With US Tax Dollars.  Dr. Anthony Fauci said he was unable to commit to stop federal funding from going to Chinese scientific research, despite the U.S. intelligence community assessing the regime as America's top adversary.  Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), made the remarks while appearing virtually at the Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee hearing on June 16, during an exchange with Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kansas).  "The NIH is still funding research in China, at least $8 million since 2020.  In the Intelligence Community's 2022 Annual Threat Assessment, the Chinese Communist Party is presented as one of the top threats to the United States, along with Russia, Iran, Syria, and North Korea.  To my knowledge, only China is receiving U.S. research dollars," said the senator during the hearing.  "When will you as director of NIAID stop funding research in China?"  Since 2020, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded a total of $8.3 million in grants to the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention and its division National Center for AIDS/STD Control and Prevention, along with five top public universities in mainland China and Hong Kong, according to the NIH website.

No research shows 'significant benefit' for kids to take vaccine.  Following a hearing with officials from the FDA and NIH regarding the federal response to COVID, medical doctor and Kansas Senator Roger Marshall (R) tells One America News that their is no research showing a significant benefit in terms of lower mortality or hospitalizations for young children who receive vaccines.  [Video clip]

Neil Oliver:  The Great Resetters are Intent on Retaining Post-Pandemic Power and Control Through Fear and Finance.  Neil Oliver uses language to hack the great red pill vending machine and feed the masses.  In his weekly monologue today, Oliver notes the great resetters, the alliance of multinational corporations and government leaders, are intent on using fear and finance to build the post-covid control mechanisms over the people within western society.  Create massive costs, destabilize the people, manipulate the crisis and leave the common family left trying to figure out what is happening.  Government and bankers using fear and finance respectively; both leveraged against the people, while drumbeating the continued nonsense of climate change and the need to 'save the planet'.  [Video clip]

WHO chief 'believes Covid DID leak from Wuhan lab' after a 'catastrophic accident' in 2019.  The head of the World Health Organisation privately believes the Covid pandemic started following a leak from a Chinese laboratory, a senior Government source claims.  While publicly the group maintains that 'all hypotheses remain on the table' about the origins of Covid, the source said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), had recently confided to a senior European politician that the most likely explanation was a catastrophic accident at a laboratory in Wuhan, where infections first spread during late 2019.

Your Government is trying to kill you & Depopulate the planet.  In March 2020 the British people were told that they must "stay at home" in order to "protect the NHS" and "save lives".  They were also told that the authorities needed just "three weeks to flatten the curve".  This was allegedly because of the threat of a new and emerging virus which we're told originated in the city of Wuhan, China.  But evidence suggests the Covid-19 pandemic was in fact an exaggerated lie.  A lie that involved prematurely ending the lives of thousands upon thousands of people, who you were told died of Covid-19.  A lie that has involved committing one of the greatest crimes against humanity in living memory.  A lie that has required three things — fear, your compliance, and a drug known as Midazolam. [...] So now we know —
  •   Authorities culled the elderly and vulnerable with a drug known as midazolam and told you they had died of Covid-19,
  •   Confidential Pfizer documents show a miscarriage rate between 82 and 97%,
  •   The only animal study performed to prove the safety of administering the Pfizer vaccine during pregnancy indicated an increased risk of infertility and birth defects,
  •   and further confidential Pfizer documents reveal the vaccine accumulates in the ovaries.
Unfortunately, we also have evidence that Covid-19 vaccination increases the risk of newborn babies sadly losing their lives, and it also comes from the Public Health Scotland 'Covid-19 Wider Impacts' dashboard.

Eighty percent of those DYING from "covid" in Canada are fully jabbed.  Four out of every five new deaths being blamed on the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) in Canada are occurring in people who took all of the "vaccine" injections as demanded by the Justin Trudeau regime.  The government of Canada has confirmed that 80 percent of "covid" deaths are "fully vaccinated" deaths, which completely defies the official government claim that the shots are perfectly "safe and effective" and help "stop the spread."  Amazingly, those who took three injections (the two primaries plus a "booster") account for 70 percent of all deaths — suggesting that the more Fauci Flu shots a person gets, the more likely he or she is to end up a statistic.  Epidemiology data from the Canadian government, which is reported sporadically and "when[ever] they feel like it," according to Exposé News, clearly shows that getting needled for Chinese Germs does not protect against either infection or death.

Rational Nosocomephobia?  Have you looked at the VAERS data lately?  The CDC apparently has not.  In the USA alone, there have been 831,801 adverse events, of which 12,776 are life threatening.  There have been 63,978 hospitalizations.  There have been 13,293 deaths and 14,232 permanent disabilities from these vaccines.  True, these are "unverified[,"] but previous research has shown that the VAERS system under-reported adverse events associated with vaccines, not over-reports.  Physicians and health care professionals rarely report adverse events past the 30 day window, so the true number of adverse events are unknown.  But we do know that they are higher than reported. [...] The CDC, under Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA) has now admitted that even though they had promised to analyze the VAERS data before advising about these vaccines for children, they did not.  The VAERS data were NOT taken into consideration before the authorization of these genetic agents for babies and young children.  Frankly, this is shocking.  So shocking, it is hard for me to even write about it.

You bet they are.
China is using QR codes to try to control COVID-19. Now, protestors fear the codes are being used to monitor and track them, too.  As part of China's efforts to control COVID-19, provincial authorities have been using a contact-tracing "health code" app to monitor people's movements.  The app works off a traffic-light coding system.  The user scans a venue's QR code, and in turn, their own QR code turns either green or red.  If green, they have the all clear to enter; if red, they might have COVID-19, and must quarantine.  But a recent wave of protests in Zhengzhou in central China has led some people to fear the app is being used for a different purpose:  to monitor and target people who have taken part in these protests.

White House Gets Busted in Multiple Lies About Ron DeSantis.  Democrats are so frightened of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as a possible 2024 candidate that they are constantly making up noise against him to try to blunt his chances.  It never works, but they always come out looking desperate and silly. [...] Several problems with these claims.  First, the government doesn't dictate to doctors or hospitals what to get for their patients.  Both Jean-Pierre and the media are casting this as DeSantis wouldn't "allow" this.  Doctors and hospitals were not prohibited from getting vaccines; the only thing DeSantis was saying was that the state wasn't going to pre-order it, on behalf of the state.  As DeSantis said, "Doctors can get it.  Hospitals can get it.  But there's not going to be any state programs that are going to be trying to get COVID jabs to infants and toddlers and newborns."

Gov. Ron DeSantis [is the] First Governor To Oppose COVID Vaccines For Kids.  Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis staked his claim Thursday as the first governor in America not to provide state support for vaccinating younger kids against COVID-19.  DeSantis stressed at an event Thursday that parents can still vaccinate their young children.  Even though the state will not be working with the federal government to distribute the vaccine, that doesn't mean it is banned, according to DeSantis.  "You are free to choose — that's not the issue," he said.

A COVID rant about something that should be normalized but isn't.  I don't want to go crazy here, but the federal, state, and local governments are driving me off the edge.  My county instituted another stupid mask mandate — a useless, counterproductive exercise, which is being very, very unevenly enforced, I have to say.  In Alameda County, Berkeley has its own health department, which didn't go along.  You can go to the Berkeley Whole Foods without a mask, while Oakland requires them.  So, so stupid!  Here's [a link to] a more detailed explanation of how much harm masking does.  [Link not included here.]  The only reason for making anyone put on a mask is to control them and marginalize their liberty.  What prompted this mandate?  Who knows!  "Cases" are reported to be up.  Yeah, but what about hospitalizations and deaths?  The national COVID tracker database is gone.  First, they stopped recording numbers, so every state and county graph simply flatlined.  Then the site disappeared altogether.  Tell me why, please?  It's always been the one reliable source of information.  Did they stop so that we'd be in the dark while they pushed for more restrictions?

The Dems: 'When Will They Ever Learn?'.  A recently reported action by the CDC exemplifies Democrat failure to learn.  The CDC is the ex-trustworthy agency that falsified COVID data; altered its definitions, predictions, and pandemic metrics; and issued contradictory, non-medical recommendations.  "When will they ever learn" — the CDC, that is — that their behavior destroyed their credibility with the public?  Evidently never, as now the CDC wants to create a permanent crisis response to COVID wherever it might be detected, with a return to masking and lockdowns.  Americans have learned, but, apparently, the CDC has not:  "fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me."  The Biden administration promised that its approach to COVID "followed the science," "would flatten the curve," would "stop this virus in two weeks," and that lockdowns would be necessary for four to six weeks.  The president admonished Americans that it was their civic duty to get vaccinated, assuring the public that mRNA vaccines were safe, were fully protective, and would end the pandemic.  Americans have learned by painful, personal experience that every Biden pronouncement and each promise were false.  Yet he still thinks we will obey his mandates.  When will he ever learn?

U.S. Gov. Data proves Covid-19 Vaccines increase risk of suffering Shingles by at least 4925%.  Monkeypox; or the new name the W.H.O are urgently trying to find for it to make it sound more frightening, is about to become the word of the day in the mainstream media now that they know everyone is bored of hearing about Ukraine.  The World Health Organization is convening an emergency meeting and will most likely have announced a Public Health Emergency of International Concern over the alleged disease by the end of June.  All member states including the USA, UK, Canada, Europe, Australia etc. will be legally obliged to then act and respond.  But data made available by the U.S. Government strongly suggests the alleged "monkeypox" outbreak may not be what it appears to be.  The disease is nigh on impossible to distinguish from chickenpox/shingles, and the U.S. Gov. data reveals that Covid-19 vaccination increases the risk of developing shingles by a shocking 4925% at the very least.

Global-Scale COVID-19 Fraud Is Designed to Control People:  Former Pfizer VP.  Lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccine mandates are all measures not for health, but to get people under control and move toward the ultimate goal of digital ID and digital currency, said Dr. Michael Yeadon, former Pfizer vice president and chief scientific officer for allergy and respiratory research.  "In brief, I'm seeing fraud on a global scale, of which the drug companies are just part," Yeadon told EpochTV's "Facts Matter" program in a recent interview.  "There is a huge push globally to persuade people that there is a health threat in order to get them to comply with various economy-destroying measures, and then follow them up with these injections.  And I believe this is all ultimately to do with control."

ARPA-H, a branch of the IC within NIH.  [Scroll down]  Here's how this works.  Congress allocates money to the NIH, which then gets divided into the intramural activities (internal government researchers) and extramural activities (the money that goes back to congressional districts in the form of grants and contracts). Over time, this has lead to a "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" feedback loop of taxpayer-funded (or borrowed) money.  Not at all what the administrative and technical genius Vannevar Bush had envisioned when he lead the creation of the Office of Scientific Research and Development (OSRD) in 1941.  OSRD, born of the war effort, essentially became the granddaddy of the entire federal scientific research enterprise- including NIH, and neither congress nor the executive branch have ever looked back to assess if the American people are getting good value.

Dr. Fauci tests positive for COVID-19.  Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading infectious disease expert, tested positive for COVID-19 Wednesday.  Fauci, 81, tested positive on a rapid antigen test and was "experiencing mild symptoms," the National Institutes of Health said in a statement.  The NIH noted that Fauci was fully vaccinated and has received two booster shots.  "Dr. Fauci will isolate and continue to work from his home.  He has not recently been in close contact with President Biden or other senior government officials," the NIH said.

Vaxxed, Double-Boosted Fauci Catches Covid.  NIAID Director Anthony Fauci, the US figurehead of the Covid-19 crisis, has contracted the very disease he's been claiming to fight.  Reports Wednesday confirmed Fauci, Joe Biden's Chief Medical Adviser and a member of the White House COVID-19 Response Team, had contracted the coronavirus, despite the fact he's received four Covid-19 vaccines.

The Citizenry's Willingness to Surrender their Freedoms Risks a Potential Dissolution or Civil War.  Over the past two decades, far too many citizens of the United States have willingly surrendered their rights and freedoms and now they are on the cusp of being unrestorable. [...] The third event that hastened the loss of freedoms was the deliberate overreaction to the Chinese Coronavirus and the attendant lockdowns and medical tyranny.  Like 9/11, a crisis created new opportunities to restrict freedom in the name of protecting the people from a so-called "existential" threat.  Freedom of speech, the right of bodily autonomy, freedom to worship or travel or associate were abrogated by political leaders using unlawful "emergency" powers.  Unconstitutional governmental mandates covering virtually all aspects of daily life and medical treatment with unproven vaccines that did not work were enforced.  With little or no push back from the citizenry, governments unnecessarily shuttered schools, forced businesses to close and to dismiss or fire employees for disobeying government mandates, and passed new coercive laws while spending trillions on their favored causes.

Tony Fauci, the Quadruple Vaxed, Double Masked Oracle of Nonsense, Has COVID.  No other tiny human since Napoleon Bonaparte has had the outsized ego of Tony Fauci.  OK, Robert Reich is a close third.  The list of things America's lawn gnome got wrong is legendary.  I'll leave that to other RedStaters to dissect and roast.  I am in the midst of a medical "problem" that keeps me from drawing my cartoons, en masse, but I could not resist lampooning the quadruple vaxxed, double-masked oracle of fear and nonsense for contracting COVID.

New study shows Sweden's decision to keep schools open was all gain, no pain.  They did this under the guise of science and saving lives.  We now have a generation of children who are delayed in language, social skills, and educational attainment, while overburdened with mental, emotional, and behavioral ailments.  And yet it was all done for absolutely nothing — no gain, all pain.  This has been appallingly obvious since schools were shut down and then children masked in 2020, but a new study from Sweden — the global control group — demonstrates the scope of this crime with unmistakable clarity.  A study by Swedish researchers published in the International Journal of Educational Research found that in this Nordic country, "word decoding and reading comprehension scores were not lower during the pandemic compared to before the pandemic."  This is simply astounding, given what we have witnessed in almost every other country.  The researchers analyzed 97,000 Swedish primary school children from 248 different municipalities, 1,277 schools, and 5,250 classrooms.

Another suppressed COVID treatment you haven't heard of.  One day, we will learn the extent of the malicious war that was waged by politicians and Big Pharma against COVID treatments.  But if the newest study on proxalutamide in COVID patients reflects reality, you can add one more drug to the list of treatments that could have saved countless lives but which were purposefully stifled to please the gods of lockdowns, panic, and experimental injections.  Last week, Kintor Pharmaceuticals announced the results of a randomized controlled trial of the use of anti-androgen proxalutamide, a prostate cancer drug, in mild to moderate COVID patients.  It found that among the 721 American patients who received at least one day of treatment, there were seven patients in the control group who were hospitalized and one fatality compared to two hospitalized patients and zero fatalities in the proxalutamide group.  Among patients with more than seven days of treatment (N=693), six patients who received placebo were hospitalized and one died, compared to no hospitalizations/deaths in the proxalutamide group.

More Than Half Of COVID Miscarriages Were Caused By Vaccines Show VAERS Data.  A recent review of data from the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows that miscarriages after COVID-19 vaccination accounted for more than 50% of all vaccine-correlated miscarriages since the federal government started gathering the data.  Maria Ziminsky and Linnea Wahl, writing at Daily Clout, examine VAERS data on expectant mothers who lost their kids after inoculation from 1998, the system's first reporting date, through May 2022.  In total, 6,695 women miscarried after receiving immunizations for tetanus, measles, or any other illness throughout that time.  The evidence does not prove that vaccinations were to blame for the fatalities (it also does not rule out the possibility that the vaccines caused the deaths). Additionally, it is not stated what proportion of all pregnant vaccination recipients these cases correspond to.  This does, nevertheless, give a starting point for assessing the effects of the relatively recent COVID vaccines.

Navy officer used COVID vaccine facts to beat discharge for resisting Biden mandate.  A 22-year U.S. Navy officer told his story of fighting COVID-19 vaccine mandates and winning as part of a wide-ranging presentation Tuesday on the state of the U.S. military under President Joe Biden that was live-streamed here on LifeSiteNews.  The Flag Day press conference, hosted by the medical freedom nonprofit Truth for Health Foundation, featured remarks by Navy Lt. Billy Moseley, who objected to the mandatory COVID shots but rather than seek a religious accommodation opted to bring his objections to the administrative separation board in protest of the armed forces' plans to implement a "blanket denial policy."  "It was easy to see that there was a bait and switch happening," Moseley said Tuesday.  "And that's when I started reaching out to several medical clinics, going back several times and trying to document that that approved drug was not available [...].  And it didn't matter how many senior officers, medical officers, chaplains inside the military that I would raise these concerns about, it would just fall on deaf ears and or they would say something along the lines like, we know it's wrong.  I can see that it's illegal, but what do you want me to do?  There's nothing I can do. "

China thwarts protest by changing people's electronic health codes from 'green' to 'red'.  The Chinese government has obstructed a plan by hundreds to protest the freezing of their bank funds by triggering an app on their smartphones.  The would-be protestors have found that the electronic health codes on their smartphones have turned red, making it illegal for them to travel.  Several depositors told Reuters they had planned to travel to the central province of Henan this week to protest a block on access to their bank deposit funds, which has been in effect for almost two months.  The funds freeze has prevented not only individuals' access to savings, but companies' payment of their workers.

Doctors 'baffled' by a 'mysterious' new 'sudden death syndrome' killing healthy young people.  They're calling it Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, or SADS for short.  Just like SIDS — Sudden Infant Death Syndrome — when healthy babies die suddenly (and most often on the same day as a wellness visit to the pediatrician). Except it occurs in adults.  And children and teens too, though the name doesn't reflect that.  Yet.  Healthy, young people are suddenly dropping dead across the globe, the Daily Mail reported last week, saying the surge of the "mysterious syndrome" is baffling doctors.  The article described the case of Catherine Keane, a 31-year-old woman from Dublin who walked 10,000 steps a day and was a regular at the gym, and just didn't wake up one day when she was staying with friends.

Truth is now in plain sight.  Post-injection death tolls have reached levels that are making it very difficult for the powers-that-be to keep the lambs sleeping and the vaxx zealots enthused.  Thus they are resorting to the oldest, tried-and-true tricks in the book, particularly the "if you tell a lie enough, it becomes the truth" method.  Politifact wrote the same, regurgitated article on April 6, 2022, declaring that mRNA and viral vector DNA injections are not the cause of countless sudden deaths in adults and kids.  The Poynter Institute, Politifact's parent organization, wrote nearly the exact same "fact check" article on September 24, 2021.  The effort has been persistent, consistent and coordinated among the monolithic mainstream media since the spring of 2021.  Pfizer-owned Reuters wrote a "fact-check" on April 29, 2021 entitled, "No evidence COVID-19 vaccines will cause an 'exponential rise' in deaths."  The next day, on April 30, 2021, USA Today wrote a "fact-check" entitled, "COVID-19 vaccines don't cause death, won't decimate world's population." FactCheck.org got into the mix on March 2, 2022, with an article entitled, "COVID-19 Vaccines Have Prevented Deaths, Contrary to Misleading Graphic on Social Media."

COVID Vaccines Linked to New Type of Incurable, Fatal Degenerative Brain Disorder.  Studies suggest a link between an incurable and fatal prion disease known as Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) and COVID-19 vaccines.  Researchers believe the prion region from the original Wuhan COVID-19 variant's spike protein was incorporated into mRNA vaccines and adenovirus vector vaccines — given to hundreds of millions of humans — and that it can cause a new type of rapidly progressing sporadic CJD.  According to Mayo Clinic, CJD is a degenerative brain disorder that leads to dementia and, ultimately, death.  Although the Omicron variant does not have a prion region on its spike protein, current COVID-19 vaccines still use the genetic material — including the prion region — of the parent Wuhan strain.  A French pre-print paper published in May on CJD and COVID-19 vaccination identified a new form of sporadic CJD that occurred within days of receiving a first or second dose of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.

Will FDA Allow Pfizer, Moderna to Skip Clinical Trials for Future COVID Vaccines?  Pfizer and Moderna have a problem — their COVID-19 shots do NOT work.  Everyone knows this.  The shots do not stop infection, transmission, hospitalization, or death.  Over half a billion doses of this product have been injected into Americans in the past 17 months and these shots have made NO discernible impact on the course of the pandemic.  Far more Americans have died of coronavirus since the introduction of the shots than before they were introduced.  Pfizer and Moderna are making $50 billion a year on these shots and they want that to continue.  So they need to reformulate the shots.  Maybe target a new variant, maybe change some of the ingredients — who knows, these shots don't work so it's not clear what it will take to get them to work.  This is a problem because reformulated shots mean new clinical trials and new regulatory reviews by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.  There is a decent chance that any reformulated shot might fail a new clinical trial and the public is deeply skeptical of these shots so the scrutiny would be intense.

The Latest Mask Research Is Bad News For Branch Covidians.  Unless you're visiting a medical facility still taken in by the mask-cult or you live in a big city or some obscure California county run by hypochondriac Democrat whack-jobs, you're probably generally living your life without being forced to wear a useless, bacteria-laden piece of t-shirt material over your face. [...] Indeed, the unabashed insistence that masks 'work' has become one of the most insane and evil lies in all of human history.  Not only did it create a false sense of security that doubtless led to more infections than would otherwise had occurred, it also led to years of speech and developmental delays in children, untold disruptions of societal cohesion, millions of tons of useless and pointless medical waste in our oceans and landfills, massive psychological issues in countless people who still mask-up in the absurdest of places and situations to this day, and even actual medical harms that are just being uncovered.  All while doing absolutely nothing towards their intended purpose.  If there has been a worse trade-off, I'd love to see it.

New Study Concludes Lockdowns Caused At Least 170,000+ Excess Deaths In U.S..  Yet another study has concluded that restrictive lockdowns contributed to a massive spike in excess deaths, with a 26% jump in mortality rate for working-age adults in America.  The study conducted by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) found that there were conservatively 170,000+ non-Covid excess deaths in the U.S. through 2020 and 2021.  The study notes that the real number is likely closer to 200,000 because over 70,000 so called "unmeasured Covid deaths," that is people who may have died only with the virus and not from it, were not taken into account.  The researchers wrote that "Summing our estimates across causes and age groups, we estimate 171,000 excess non-Covid deaths through the end of 2021 plus 72,000 unmeasured Covid deaths.

Justin Bieber paralysis is a known vaccine side effect, whoops!.  Justin Bieber recently came out to tell fans he's come down with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, which caused partial paralysis in his face — it turns out RHS is a known vaccine side effect. [...] However, this wouldn't be the only time doctors diagnosed someone with RHS following inoculation with the COVID vaccine.  According to a report published in the BMJ Postgraduate Medical Journal, "We recently diagnosed Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS) in a 37-year-old previously healthy man.  Two days after his first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech (BNT162b2) vaccine, he noticed fever and a pain in the right ear.  Vesicles were then developed in his right ear and canal, together with vertigo, tinnitus and loss of hearing."  "He complained of facial palsy, tongue numbness and dysgeusia.  On examination, he had grade 4 right facial nerve palsy of the lower motor neuron type with right sensorineural hearing loss."

How Secret Soviet Killings Led to COVID Tyranny.  [Scroll down]  The world first became aware of China's bioweapons capabilities in 2005, when it offered assistance to Iran's bioweapons program.  Now, with at least fifteen identified facilities, it is believed to have the world's largest and most sophisticated bioweapons capability.  Five months before the COVID outbreak, the Pentagon had warned that China had a vast chemical- and bio-warfare program.  The outbreaks of hemorrhagic fever and COVID have been characterized as inadvertent leaks, but who trusts China?  Or trusts its supreme leader, Xi Jinping, who, like Stalin and Putin, has initiated purges, has ordered genocides (of Falun Gong, Uyghurs, and Tibetans), has murdered dissidents, and won't hesitate to use bioterror?  China's COVID cover-up has included the destruction of forensic samples, the mysterious deaths or disappearances of scientists who exposed the Wuhan lab's work, and an iron control of the narrative.  Xi joins the ranks of the greatest killers and cover-up artists in human history.

You'll Never Escape COVID.  Peer-reviewed publications establish with precision that anywhere from 5 to 80 percent will suffer some form of Long COVID — regardless whether they actually caught the virus or not.  Meanwhile, the media magnify fears over the mystery of Long COVID. [...] But what exactly is Long COVID?  The U.K. report struggled with three different definitions and three different analyses for the condition.  Typical symptoms include difficulty breathing, cognitive decline or "brain fog," chronic fatigue, malaise, headaches, and runny nose.  Yet these things plagued humanity long before the now-vindicated pangolas of Wuhan wet markets unleashed their "never could happen" gain-of-function-in-a-laboratory viral strain on a world bristling with triggers for these symptoms including, of all things, isolation.  Curiously, social stressors such as isolation are linked with inflammation, particularly in the brain, or "neuroinflammation."

Andrew Giuliani banned from GOP debate at WCBS studio over refusal to provide vax proof.  New York gubernatorial hopeful Andrew Giuliani said he's been banned from appearing in-person at a Monday debate against his GOP primary opponents because he's refused to provide proof he's vaccinated against COVID-19.  Giuliani, 36, announced he would hold a press conference Sunday morning to "protest vaccine mandates that continue to discriminate against first responders and healthcare workers," according to a news release.  Giuliani has previously touted that he was unvaccinated, but his announcement on Saturday said only he refused to provide proof of his status.

The Subordinate Citizen.  I recently led a group of about 100 citizens to tour Israel for nearly two weeks.  Before returning to the United States, all participants had to indicate their vaccination status and take a COVID-19 test for reentry.  Anxieties swept the group as Israeli testers swabbed them.  Anyone testing positive would have to delay his or her return.  That quarantine would entail spending thousands of dollars in finding scarce hotel accommodations, additional living expenses, and rebooked airline tickets — depending upon the length of the mandatory sequestration.  Contrast the tens of thousands of foreign nationals now mustering to cross illegally into the United States again this summer.  They follow the already 2 million who have entered the country unlawfully since Joe Biden became president.  Does any foreign national worry about being tested for COVID-19, much less fear being turned away if he tests positive or for lack of proof of vaccination?  Or do we scrutinize far more carefully U.S. citizens entering legally their own country than we do noncitizens crossing our borders unlawfully?

CDC Foundation is not a government entity and has many conflicts of interest.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ("CDC") is an advertising agency for pharmaceutical companies.  That may come off as some grandiose pronouncement meant to gather clicks and attention.  But the agency does what it is supposed to do — promote and advance the interests of its stakeholders.  There is nothing impartial, objective, or neutral about the CDC and its sister agency, the National Institutes of Health ("NIH").  Doctors and scientists who have dedicated their entire existence to medicine and saving lives are being decertified, censored, and discredited by the CDC for presenting peer-reviewed evidence that is contrary to the COVID-19 agenda.  Media that do not tow the doomsday COVID narrative are also censored.  Search "The COVID Blog" and "COVID Legal USA" without quotes in any search engine besides Google.  We come up first or second.  Now do Google.  The censorship is blatant and obvious.

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome is the new name for vaccine deaths in the medical establishment's play-pretend reality.  In an attempt to explain away the rash of deaths occurring in otherwise healthy-seeming adults who got "vaccinated" for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), the medical establishment has coined a new term called "Sudden Adult Death Syndrome," or SADS, that it is pretending appeared out of nowhere with no explanation.  Much like Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), which was also made up out of thin air to explain away infant deaths caused by vaccines, SADS is being called a "mystery" condition that could strike anyone at any time for no apparent reason.  People under the age of 40 are now being told to go to their doctors immediately to have their hearts checked, as they might have a hidden case of SADS.  The condition could be fatal, we are told, and is an "umbrella term to describe unexpected deaths in young people," according to The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.

The Editor says...
The first symptom is a stabbing pain in your upper arm, followed by a booster five months later.

Why America Doesn't Trust the CDC.  People don't trust the CDC. Here's one example illustrating why.  Two weeks ago, with no outcomes data on COVID-19 booster shots for 5-to-11-year-olds, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) vigorously recommended the booster for all 24 million American children in that age group.  The CDC cited a small Pfizer study of 140 children that showed boosters elevated their antibody levels — an outcome known to be transitory.  When that study concluded, a Pfizer spokesperson said it did not determine the efficacy of the booster in the 5-to-11-year-olds.  But that didn't matter to the CDC.  Seemingly hoping for a different answer, the agency put the matter before its own kangaroo court of curated experts, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).  I listened to the meeting, and couldn't believe what I heard.  At times, the committee members sounded like a group of marketing executives.

Justin Bieber Announces He Is Suffering From Rare Partial Facial Paralysis Disorder.  Justin Bieber on Friday revealed to fans that the reason behind him postponing several shows of his 2022 "Justice World Tour" is due to a rare syndrome that caused paralysis on one side of his face.  In a video Bieber uploaded to Instagram, the 28-year-old singer explained that he has Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which causes facial paralysis and affects nerves in the face through a shingles outbreak.

Why I'm 99% certain that Justin Bieber's facial paralysis was caused by the COVID vaccine.  The VAERS data shows that Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS) is 160 times more likely after a COVID vaccination than for all the other vaccines combined in any given year.  And if you exclude the anthrax vaccine from that comparison, the likelihood is simply too high to calculate (0 cases in 32 years).  So the COVID vaccine should definitely be considered as a possible cause for this rare disease.  I show below that the estimated rate of RHS after COVID vaccination is 338 cases per 100,000. The medical literature says it occurs naturally in 5 cases per 100,000.  Therefore, it is 99% likely that Justin's RHS was caused by the vaccine, and only 1% chance that he got "unlucky."  Sadly, it's unlikely Bieber's doctors will ever acknowledge that so it's unlikely he'll get the care he needs (treat both the RHS and the vaccine injury).  He'll simply assume he is just unlucky.  The mainstream press isn't doing its job if they don't report this (which they won't).

Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche:  Covid Infection, Disease to Aggravate in Vaccinated.  The mass vaccination campaign against Covid has been a "blunder of unprecedented scale" that would likely result in "a global catastrophe without equal," warned world-class Belgian scientist Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche at the beginning of the vaccines' rollout.  In this interview with The New American, Dr. Vanden Bossche described why mass vaccination with "leaky" vaccines could not lead to herd immunity, and why he expected the emergence of the "super variants" of Covid that would be resistant to all current and future Covid vaccines.  The doctor argued that if the mass vaccination if not stopped and if the large-scale antiviral program is not implemented, it would be most probable that the current pattern of repetitive infections and relatively mild disease in the vaccinated would soon aggravate and be replaced by severe disease and death.

All The Bad Things Pfizer Knew But Tried To Hide For 75 Years.  Dr. Naomi Wolf goes over what her team found about the vaccine from the Pfizer document dump.  Remember that Pfizer never wanted you to know this information, they fought in court to keep it hidden for 75 years.  [Video clip]

Moderna: Over 1,000 Heart Inflammation Cases in Those Under 40 Following COVID-19 Vaccination.  Over 1,000 cases of heart inflammation have been detected in recipients of Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine who are under 40 years old, the biotechnology company said on June 10.  Myocarditis, a type of heart inflammation, has been most prevalent following vaccination in males 18 to 24 years old, according to the company.  In a document (pdf) filed before upcoming meetings with U.S. regulators and an advisory panel, Moderna said 42.6 cases of myocarditis have appeared per million second doses administered to males in that age group across the world.  Overall, approximately 1,076 cases have been recorded in people aged 12 to 39, according to the document, which cited Moderna's safety reports as its source.  Through April 15, an estimated 160 million doses of Moderna's vaccine have been administered to people under 40.

Study: Pfizer Vaccine Increases Myocarditis Threefold.  As the mass administration of COVID-19 jabs continues, we're now seeing some of the more common side effects emerging.  Myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart muscle, is among them.  This condition can cause symptoms similar to a heart attack, including chest pain, shortness of breath, abnormal heartbeat and fatigue.  A large study from Israel revealed that the Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA jab is associated with a threefold increased risk of myocarditis, leading to the condition at a rate of one to five excess events per 100,000 persons.  Other elevated risks were also identified following the COVID jab, including lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes), appendicitis and herpes zoster infection.

If You're Reading This Message, You're Ready to Resist Tyranny.  Many people who would prefer to be left alone to live their lives free from government interference have an understandable sense of impending doom.  The COVID Crisis showed Westerners how quickly (and easily) their governments would impose unilateral mandates against their will, destroying any illusion that self-congratulating "democracies" have any more respect for individual rights or bodily autonomy than the authoritarian regimes the West routinely condemns.  If an unsuspecting citizen once took "freedom" for granted, forced experimental injections, arbitrary and capricious closures of private businesses, mass surveillance, vaccine passports, and government-sponsored censorship of dissenting medical opinion have demonstrated how rapidly undefended freedom slips away.  Westerners were not prepared to take a vigorous stand for freedom of speech, freedom of movement, freedom of conscience, or personal privacy.  Their silence was interpreted as acquiescence to government control and rewarded with only more intrusive and authoritarian measures. [...] Center for Disease Control bureaucrats are already defending their unconstitutional pandemic powers as necessary tools that should be permanently "institutionalized."

Healthy young people dying from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.  Young people with a particular family history are being urged to get their hearts screened even if they are fit and healthy, as they could be at risk of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.  Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, or Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), is an "umbrella term to describe unexpected deaths in young people", usually under 40, when a post-mortem can find no obvious cause of death, according to the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).  While national figures are not available, Melbourne's Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute is developing the country's first SADS registry, which it hopes to eventually roll out across the country.  "In our registry, there are approximately 750 cases per year of people aged under 50 in Victoria suddenly having their heart stop (a cardiac arrest)," a spokeswoman said.  "Of these, approximately 100 young people per year will have no cause found even after extensive investigations such as a full autopsy (the SADS phenomenon)."

Healthy young people are dying suddenly and unexpectedly from a mysterious syndrome.  People aged under 40 are being urged to have their hearts checked because they may potentially be at risk of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.  The syndrome, known as SADS, has been fatal for all kinds of people regardless of whether they maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle.  SADS is an 'umbrella term to describe unexpected deaths in young people', said The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, most commonly occurring in people under 40 years of age.

Members of Congress Demand Answers.  Eighteen sitting Congressional members wrote a strong letter to the FDA demanding answers prior to the decision by regulators to approve COVID-19 vaccines for babies and young children aged 6 months to 4 years old.  The FDA VRBPAC advisory panel is scheduled to meet on June 15 to discuss authorization and this letter addresses the fact that there are questions and facts that the FDA must consider prior to EUA authorization.  The letter clearly states that COVID-19 poses little risk to babies and young children, that the vaccines have little effectiveness against new variants, that there are many unanswered questions about the safety of the vaccines and that there is evidence of significant adverse events.  Therefore, the lawmakers queried the FDA panel as to why these vaccines are necessary for this age cohort.

COVID jab side effects are like a 'nuclear bomb': US pathologist.  An American pathologist says that the potential side effects from the COVID jab were like a "nuclear bomb," due to the "platform of lipid nanoparticle" technology that "has never been proven before."  Dr. Ryan Cole sat down with Bright Light News during the World Council for Health Better Way Conference on June 4 and gave his medical opinion on the dangers that he has witnessed in the wake of the COVID jab rollout.  "Everybody hears about myocarditis," he said.  "What they don't hear is that a lipid nanoparticle plus a modified gene sequence is a nuclear bomb."  "It's not just that this COVID shot is dangerous for people, it's this platform of lipid nanoparticle plus gene sequence that has never been proven before."  Cole likened the lipid nanoparticle platform to "garlic, once you stick it in the arm it goes anywhere in the body."  Because of this, "it can damage the brain," he added.  [Video clip]

Globalist elites beg for 'trust' despite an 'unending stream' of COVID lies and 'massive' censorship.  In a May 17 press conference some have called Orwellian, representatives from globalist institutions insisted that the COVID crisis is "anything but over," demanded higher levels of "risk management" compliance from every nation, a "seamless" implementation of globalist decisions in health systems, and even more censorship of "conspiracy theories" from Big Tech corporations.  The occasion was a document release from the International Science Council (ISC) titled "Unprecedented and Unfinished:  COVID-19 and Implications for National and Global Policy."  The organization's president, Dr. Peter Gluckman, explained the purpose of the project was to contest the notion that experimental gene-based vaccines in some way would end the COVID crisis allowing nations to "return to some form of normality."  But this "clearly was not going to be the case," he exclaimed.

New film argues WHO engaged in 'population control experiment' under the guise of a vaccination program.  Children's Health Defense (CHD) has collaborated with British filmmaker and activist Dr. Andy Wakefield and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to deliver a new film that sets out to prove the World Health Organization (WHO) engaged in a "population control experiment" "carried out under the guise of a vaccination program" and resulted "in the sterilization of women in Africa without their knowledge or consent."  According to a press release issued by CHD, the 30-minute film entitled "Infertility:  A Diabolical Agenda," will premiere on Friday, June 10 at 2 p.m. ET on CHD.TV[.]

Study: Face masks contributed to high COVID-19 death rates.  A bombshell report shared by Dr. Simone Gold, founder of the American Frontline Doctors, revealed that face masks contributed to high Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) case fatality rates.  "People are still not aware that wearing face masks do not protect them from viruses and are actually harmful," Gold disclosed citing the report as proof.  The observational study titled "The Foegen Effect:  A Mechanism by Which Facemasks Contribute to the COVID-19 Case Fatality Rate," authored by German doctor Zacharias Fögen, was published in the journal Medicine in February.  The study examined "whether mandatory mask use influenced the case fatality rate in Kansas" from August 1 to October 15, 2020.  Kansas was used for comparison because the state allowed each of its 105 counties to decide whether or not to implement mask mandates.  Eighty-one counties decided against the measure.

The dystopian state of our nation.  [Scroll down]  Fear-mongering is their number-one tool; the media, electronic and social, are completely on board.  Fomenting crime, unnecessary COVID mandates, lockdowns, calculated supply chain shortages, the doubling of gas prices, etc. — all these are part of their program to disrupt and destroy what was once the greatest nation on the planet.  Despite the seeming randomness of what is happening, it's all part of their plan:  wreck America as founded, and reconstitute it as their oligarchic playground.

Doctors Suing Food and Drug Administration Over Ivermectin.  A Washington law firm has filed a federal lawsuit against the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for interfering with the use of ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19.  The lawsuit was filed by Boyden Gray & Associates on behalf of three doctors who were disciplined for prescribing human-grade ivermectin to patients.  The firm's founder, attorney Boyden Gray, is a former legal adviser to the Reagan and Bush administrations.  Gray told The Epoch Times that the FDA had violated well-established law that allows doctors to prescribe an FDA-approved drug as an off-label treatment.  Ivermectin was no different, he said.  It was approved by the FDA in 1966.  "Congress recognized the importance of letting doctors be doctors and expressly prohibited the FDA from interfering with the practice of medicine," Gray said.

Pfizer knew in May of 2021 that 35 minors' hearts had been damaged after MRNA injection — but the FDA rolled out the EUA for teens a month later anyway.  [Thread reader]  In the most recent #pfizer dump, there are 6 entries where the "withdrawal reason" was death. [...] "A Pfizer document reveals between 82-97% of pregnant women lost their babies.  45% of the 270 pregnant mothers reported adverse clinical events, and more than 60% of these were serious."

Court Ordered Release of Pfizer Document Reveals 82% — 97% of Vaccinated Pregnant Women Lost their Babies.  A recently released confidential document reveals that a startling majority of in utero babies died after pregnant women were injected with the Pfizer vaccine.  Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency (PHMPT) requested documents related to vaccine licensing via a Freedom of Information Act Request, then sued the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  In early January 2022, a federal judge ordered the FDA incrementally release the documents it claimed would take decades to process.  PHMPT has posted Pfizer's confidential documents as they have become available.  In the most recent release, on May 2, 2022, a document titled 'reissue_5.3.6 postmarketing experience.pdf' disclosed on page 12 that by February 8, 2021, 270 women had received the mRNA injection during pregnancy.  But 238 cases were apparently not followed ("no outcome provided").  And, therefore, the pregnancy outcomes for those women are unknown.

Pfizer knew their vaccine would kill.  The documents were first leaked in a cyber attack on the European Medicines Agency website.  More than 40 megabytes of classified information from the agency's review were published on the dark web, and several journalists including those at the British Medical Journal were sent copies of the leak.  In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration had previously agreed to withhold the documents and their jaw-dropping revelations from the public for 75 years, until Texas District Judge Mark Pittman ordered their release within eight months, stating it was 'of paramount public importance'.  Most alarmingly of all, the documents show that in the trials there were at least 1,223 deaths reported in the first 28 days after injection.

Joseph Ladapo openly questions safety of COVID-19 vaccines.  Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo on Friday made some of his strongest statements yet against receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.  Delivered at a press conference announcing an agreement with the Special Olympics to lift a vaccine mandate, the Florida Department of Health leader went much further.  He called into question the efficacy of COVID-19 shots and whether they are even safe to use.  "People will say oh, you know, millions of people have taken these vaccines, they must be safe," he said.  "Well, you can't know the answer to that when it is taboo to talk about having a reaction after vaccines."  Citing only anecdotal evidence, he suggested the vaccine has produced more side effects than others such as flu shots.

Importing COVID: Biden administration releases 7,000 COVID-infected illegal border crossers into McAllen, Texas.  So much for Title 42, the court-reinforced order to keep illegal border crossers out of the U.S. to protect the public here during the pandemic.  Actually, they're letting them in ... and letting them in.  There's no limit. [...] According to City-Data, McAllen, Texas has a population of 143,000 and is Texas's 22nd-largest city.  Adding 1,400 people with COVID into a population of that size in one week is [...] a lot of COVID to get spreading.  Ostensibly, these migrants are a "humanitarian exception" to the Title 42 sendbacks — single moms with small children, and unaccompanied minors, most of whom are single MS-13-aged young men.  The problem here is that they spread COVID as much as the single adults and families with older children who are being sent back.  There's no exception with COVID, whether it comes from a single mom with four kids in tow or a single adult male without kids.

Special Olympics Drops Covid-19 Vaccine Requirement After Florida Threatens $27.5 Million Fine.  The Special Olympics, which is scheduled to hold its 2022 USA Games in Orlando, Florida, from June 5 through 12, had a Covid-19 vaccination requirement for its participating athletes.  That's "had," until the Florida Department of Health threatened Special Olympics International with a $27.5 million fine via a June 2 letter.  Why would the Sunshine State fine the world's largest sports organization for those with intellectual or physical disabilities a sunny $27.5 million?  Well, the oh-so-fine letter claimed that the Special Olympics requesting proof of vaccination was in "violation of Florida law."  The letter indicated that "Section 381.00316(1) Florida Statutes, prohibits a business entity, which includes a charitable organization, from requiring any patron or customer certifying Covid-19 vaccination or post-infection recovery to gain access to, entry upon, or service from the business entity."

Dogs can detect Covid with high accuracy, even asymptomatic cases.  Questions about whether dogs can sniff out Covid — and how well — have intrigued researchers since early in the pandemic.  A study published Wednesday in the journal Plos One offers further evidence that dogs can indeed be trained to detect Covid.  The dogs tested in the research accurately identified 97 percent of positive cases after sniffing human sweat samples.  That made them more sensitive than some rapid antigen tests.  The samples were collected at community centers in Paris from a mix of symptomatic and asymptomatic cases, as well as healthy people without Covid.  The researchers found the dogs to be especially good at detecting asymptomatic infections, with a sensitivity nearing 100 percent.

They've officially forbidden the practice of medicine in Ontario, Canada.  Dr. Ira Bernstein who practices medicine in Ontario, Canada is about to have his license to practice medicine revoked soon. [...] In 2.5 years of COVID, he's never lost a patient to COVID.  None of his patients complained.  None of his patients were hospitalized or died from COVID.  Nobody was harmed.  So no revenue for the hospitals.  What was his crime?  He didn't toe the line and treat COVID patients like the College thinks they should be treated.  The message to physicians in Canada is clear:  you either treat COVID patients using methods approved by the medical authorities or they'll take away your livelihood for the rest of your life.  If this type of authoritarian medicine can happen in Canada, it can happen everywhere else in the world.  No Canadian physicians are coming to Dr. Bernstein's defense publicly because doing so would jeopardize their license.  Who is behind this?  The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.

Doctors Sue FDA Over Unlawful Attempts to Prohibit Ivermectin Use.  Today [6/2/2022], a group of doctors represented by Boyden Gray & Associates PLLC filed a lawsuit against the Department of Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra in his official capacity as Secretary of Health and Human Services, the Food and Drug Administration, and Robert M. Califf in his official capacity as Commissioner of Food and Drugs, over the FDA's unlawful attempts to prohibit the use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19.  The plaintiffs, Drs. Robert L. Apter, Mary Talley Bowden, and Paul E. Marik argue the FDA acted outside of its authority and illegally interfered with their ability to practice medicine by directing the public, including health professionals and patients, to not use ivermectin, a drug that has received full FDA approval for human use.

"It's more of a matter of principle of where the authority lies"
Fauci Openly Admits Biden Mask Mandate Is About Preserving "Authority".  Appearing on Fox News Wednesday [6/1/2022], Anthony Fauci appeared to admit that the Biden administration's efforts to reinstate mask mandates on planes and trains is about preserving "authority" over public health decisions, not about keeping people safe.  Earlier in the week, the Justice Department asked an appeals court to overturn a federal judge's order that mask mandates were unlawful.  As we noted in April, Joe Biden's CDC extended mask mandates for Americans on planes and public transport, while the administration sought to simultaneously end all COVID restrictions for migrants crossing illegally into the United States.

FLCCC launches Post-Vaccine Syndrome Protocol.  Dr. Paul Marik and Dr. Pierre Kory are happy to introduce the new I-RECOVER: Post-Vaccine Treatment protocol, designed to help people who have experienced adverse symptoms after a COVID vaccine.  [Video clip]

The FDA's proposed "Future Framework" is the worst idea in the history of public health.  Pfizer and Moderna have a problem — their Covid-19 shots do NOT work.  Everyone knows this.  The shots do not stop infection, transmission, hospitalization, nor death.  Over half a billion doses of this product have been injected into Americans in the past 17 months and these shots have made NO discernible impact on the course of the pandemic.  Far more Americans have died of coronavirus since the introduction of the shots than before they were introduced.  Pfizer and Moderna are making $50 billion a year on these shots and they want that to continue.  So they need to reformulate the shots.  Maybe target a new variant, maybe change some of the ingredients — who knows, these shots don't work so it's not clear what it will take to get them to work.  This is a problem because reformulated shots mean new clinical trials and new regulatory review by the FDA. There is a decent chance that any reformulated shot might fail a new clinical trial and the public is deeply skeptical of these shots so the scrutiny would be intense.  So Pfizer and Moderna have figured out a way to use regulatory capture to get their reformulated Covid-19 shots approved WITHOUT further clinical trials.

The Pfizer Inoculations for Covid-19: More Harm Than Good.  The federal, provincial and municipal governments in Canada have a responsibility to protect the health of Canadians as well as our Charter Rights and Freedoms.  Any medical interventions approved by Health Canada must first be proven safe.  Due diligence in research, as well as adherence to established protocols of the doctor/patient relationship, informed consent and scientific inquiry are essential to carrying out that responsibility.  Deviating from those practices, causing harm and failing to disclose risks of harm is negligent at best.

New study links COVID vaccines to 25% increase in cardiac arrest for both males & females.  A new study by Israeli researchers and published in Nature has revealed an increase of over 25 percent in cardiovascular-related emergency calls in the young-adult population, following the rollout of COVID vaccines, among both males and females.  No similar increase was found due to COVID infection alone.  Israel health authorities and the U.S. Centers of Disease Control (CDC) have acknowledged a link between COVID vaccines and specific cardiovascular complications.  The risk of myocarditis after receiving a second vaccine dose is now estimated to be between 1 in 3000 to 1 in 6000 in men aged 16 to 24.  Recent articles in scientific journals, however, have sought to suggest that cardiovascular complications following COVID infection are more common than those following vaccination.  This assertion is contradicted by the findings from a recent study conducted by Israeli researchers, using data from Israel National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) related to "cardiac arrest and acute coronary syndrome EMS calls in the 16 [to] 39-year-old population" between 2019 and 2021.  This enabled them to compare baseline (pre-COVID epidemic) to COVID epidemic without vaccines, to COVID epidemic following widespread vaccine takeup.

Latest CDC Data Shows Covid-19 Infections [are] Higher in Boosted Americans Compared to Unboosted.  The latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed that breakthrough Covid-19 infections in April was worse in boosted Americans compared to the vaccinated but not boosted.  According to the data analyzed by far-left CBS, the week of April 23 showed that boosted Americans are catching COVID-19 at nearly double the rate of those who have not been boosted.  But claimed the unvaccinated remain the highest group.  The unvaccinated rate is a bit misleading as CDC includes those with 1 dose and even 2 doses under 14 days.  In the UK, they separate those with zero doses from those who received the vaccination.

Stopping 'Quarantine Camps' in New York State.  Imagine a land where the government has the power to lock you up because the unelected bureaucrats in the Health Department think that you might, possibly have a communicable disease.  They don't have to prove you are sick.  They don't have to prove you are a health threat to others.  They just need to think that, maybe, you were possibly exposed to a disease.  And when I say "lock people up," I mean lock you in your home or force you from your home into a facility, detention center, camp (pick your noun) that they get to choose and you must stay there for however long they want.  No time limit; so it could be for days, weeks, months, or years.  Now imagine that there is no age restriction, so the government can do this to you personally, or to your child, or to your grandchild, or to your elderly parent, or to your ailing grandparent. [...] And yet, the governor of New York and her Department of Health have promulgated a dystopian regulation that does all of that and more.  The regulation is called "Isolation and Quarantine Procedures" and can be found at 10 NYCRR 2.13.  It is a clear violation of the Separation of Powers because the governor is not supposed to make law, nor can an agency.

DMED Data Reveals Incredibly Disturbing Spikes in Vaccine Injuries Across the Board.  Attorney Tom Renz made worldwide headlines after disclosing explosive data from the Department of Defense DMED database at Senator Ron Johnson's Second Opinion Hearing.  DMED is the official database of the 1.4M active duty DoD servicemen.  The data, obtained by three courageous DoD whistleblowers, from the DMED showed shocking increases in medical conditions from the mRNA "vaccines" after the military demanded injections for all service members:

Video: Something Weird Is Going On With Pfizer CEO's Neck Again — He Acts Like A Frog.  It's been almost two years since Pfizer and European drug company BioNTech said early data suggests the vaccine could be more than 90% effective.  It was big news to kick off the week and it led to an immediate 15% surge in the company's share price[.]  And yet, that same day, Pfizer's CEO Albert Bourla filed to sell millions of dollars of his company's stock, coincidentally profiting from this historic announcement.  Indeed, Bourla sold 132,508 Pfizer shares at a price of $41.94, raking in $5.6 million.  And another Pfizer insider, Executive Vice President Sally Susman, sold 43,662 shares at the same $41.94 price that Bourla sold at, netting more than $1.8 million.  Both said these sales were part of a pre-arranged plan.

The Wuhan lab leak theory reappraised.  Bipartisan investigations are a rarity in Washington, D.C.  The constituencies likely to be affected or to suffer collateral damage are usually enough to derail them from gaining momentum.  Affix the term "disinformation" to the claim in need of investigation and the chances of a genuine inquiry plummet from hardly ever to "forget about it."  Such is the current trajectory of the need to explore the origin of COVID-19.  We now know that intelligence officials and top diplomats studied the issue in the Spring of 2020 and concluded that the virus "most likely" came from a lab.  In keeping with their history of suppressing any news that could potentially be damaging to the regime, the Chinese have stridently opposed entertaining the question.  We also know from public records that many of the world's top scientists, including those from our nation's own health agencies, went to extremes to prevent the question from being asked early on in the pandemic, with help from media and tech firms.

The Sovietization of American Life.  Entire professions have now nearly been lost to radical progressive ideology. [...] What about the Stanford doctors who signed a groupthink letter attacking their former colleague, Dr. Scott Atlas, because he questioned the orthodoxies of Dr. Anthony Fauci and the state bureaucracies — who we now know hid their own involvement with channeling funding to deadly gain-of-function research in Wuhan?  Did they reject his views on empirical grounds and welcome a give-and-take shared inquiry — or simply wish to silence an ideological outlier and advisor to a despised counterrevolutionary? [...] Or what about the 1,000 medical "professionals" who claimed violating quarantine and protective protocols for Black Lives Matter demonstrations was vital for the mental health of the protestors?

New Study:  Mask Mandates Associated With Increased Covid Death Rate.  A bombshell new medical journal report comparing Covid-19 fatality rates across Kansas counties during the height of the pandemic alleged that mask mandates could be associated with higher death rates from the virus. [...] The paper went on to theorize that the so-called "Foegen effect," whereby hypercondensed droplets caught by masks are re-inhaled and introduced deeper into the respiratory tract, could be responsible for the increased mortality rate.  The possibility was echoed by Dr. Aaron Kheriaty while discussing the study during a Saturday night appearance on Fox News' "Unfiltered" with Dan Bongino:  "There is emerging evidence, a study out of Kansas recently that suggested that the case fatality rate with Covid is higher where there are mask mandates," Kheriaty said.  "Once you get infected, if you are wearing a mask, this study suggested that your chance of having a bad outcome, of dying from Covid was higher.  And that probably has to do with rebreathing these kind of condensed droplets that have a lot of virus in them."

Fauci Rips Trump and Republicans During Commencement Speech at NYC College.  Fauci has crossed the line from public servant to partisan figure.  He needs to step out of the spotlight.

Fauci rips into Trump, GOP during commencement speech at NYC college.  Dr. Anthony Fauci took a barely veiled swipe at former President Donald Trump and Republicans during a college commencement speech Friday — just two days after claiming he wouldn't "get involved in any politics" related to the 2024 election.  Speaking to more than 3,700 graduates of the City College of New York in Harlem, Fauci said, "It is blatantly obvious that we are experiencing a deepening divisiveness in our nation, fed by a flagrant devaluation of the truth."  "While genuine differences of opinion or ideology are part of a healthy society, increasingly we are hearing, reading and seeing outlandish statements and pronouncements propped up by deliberate distortions of reality," he said during his keynote address.  "Fabrications, conspiracy theories and outright lies are becoming commonplace from radical fringe groups as well as from people who you would hope would know better — and you know who they are."

Monkeypox, Hepatitis & Covid-19: Public Health has been Hijacked & the Mainstream Media are lying to you.  Anyone who honestly believes that this is simply because we've gone from having a "dangerous" respiratory virus circulating around the world to having a "dangerous" zoonosis virus circulating around the world has quite frankly been watching too much BBC News and not done their homework.  The truth is there is nothing simple about it, and the reasons authorities with the help of the mainstream media have gone from spreading fear and propaganda around an alleged virus with a fatality rate of less than 0.2%, to spreading fear and propaganda around an alleged virus that has rarely been seen outside of Africa in 50 years are multi-faceted, sinister, and unbelievable without the context and evidence to support them.  If you believe in germ theory and the mainstream narrative on the existence and behaviour of viruses then you will likely question whether the Covid-19 virus was leaked from a lab, namely the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  There is plenty of evidence out there to support this, including evidence that suggests the pharmaceutical giant Moderna had a major role to play in that.  So would it surprise you to know that there is now emerging evidence that if this circulating monkeypox virus even exists, it too was manipulated and leaked from a bio-lab?

Scientists Fight Back.  SARS-CoV-2 started in Wuhan in late 2019.  After several waves swept through the world and left millions of people dead, the world is now entering the endemic phase. [...] The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) governs China by controlling every aspect of people's lives.  When SARS-CoV-2 emerged in Wuhan in December 2019, the CCP was in a celebratory mood.  It planned to showcase its economic achievements and celebrate the Chinese New Year with huge banquets.  No virus should have dared to come to spoil the party.  Therefore, the CCP silenced those people sounding the alarm.  Then, when they found out that the virus was spreading and killing many, in order to show the world that they were powerful and capable of controlling viral spread, they implemented a draconian lockdown in Wuhan.  The CCP then intentionally allowed the spread of the virus to the rest of the world by continuing international flights out of Wuhan while cancelling domestic flights.  In this way, the CCP protected itself while infecting other countries.  As a result, the rest of the world suffered huge losses while China enjoyed zero-COVID for most of 2020 and 2021.

Arizona Mother Sentenced to 5 Days in Jail After Questioning School's COVID Rules.  An Arizona mother who has been sentenced to five days in jail for questioning Covid policies she called unconstitutional while at her daughter's school is speaking out about her sentence.  Jennifer Majuta, a mother to a 16-year-old daughter, was arrested in August of last year at Walden Grove High School, just outside of Tucson, and charged with a class 3 misdemeanour for allegedly trespassing on school property.

Judicial Watch Uncovers Dozens of Records of Illegal Molecular Research Reported to NIH.  Judicial Watch announced today that it received 2369 pages of records from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) revealing over two dozen cases where research involving recombinant or synthetic nucleic acid (r/sNA) molecules was conducted in America without proper approval and in violation of NIH guidelines.  Recombinant or synthetic nucleic acid (r/sNA) molecules are constructed outside of living cells.  The molecules are made by joining DNA or RNA segments (natural or synthetic) to DNA or RNA molecules that can replicate within a living cell.  They may also result from replication of previously constructed recombinant molecules.

COVID vaccines:  When will enough be enough?  AT recently published an article by physician Joseph Shepherd, who succinctly summarized how the COVID vaccines kill.  Aside from all the well-documented adverse effects and deaths from the vaccines, by now it should be obvious to the casual observer that the COVID boosters don't protect against contracting or transmitting omicron or the sub-variants.  Yet some of us still proudly announce our double-boosted status.  Given how blessedly minimal the effects of the virus on children have been in the aggregate, and given what we now know about the adverse effects of the vaccines on the vascular, coronary, neurological, and immune systems, one might be forgiven for regarding the vaccination of young children as borderline criminal.  Yet Pfizer, not content with getting the green light to vaccinate children from ages 5 to 12, now wants to jab children under 5 with three doses.  The company claims that "three doses of the shot were 80% effective at preventing symptomatic COVID-19 and generated a robust immune response in children ages 6 months to 5 years old."  Only 80%?  What happened to the 93+% efficacies we heard so much about?

Novavax stock tumbles after FDA brief on its COVID vaccine.  Novavax stock lost a quarter of its value Friday [5/3/2022] after a Food and Drug Administration brief ahead of its COVID-19 vaccine's review next week raised concerns.  "Data from passive surveillance during post-authorization use in other countries indicate a higher-than-expected rate of myocarditis and pericarditis associated with the vaccine," the briefing document noted.  "However, interpretation of these passive surveillance data is not straightforward, and further evaluation is need to inform the risk associated with the vaccine, and their outcomes, as additional data emerge over time."

Fauci's Animal Testing Shielded by Censorship and Disinformation.  For the past two years, government animal testing has been at the center of the free speech debate that's reached a boiling point in the United States.  Big Tech and Big Media companies have weaponized "fact checks," sensitive content warnings, and advertising bans to muzzle us and cast doubt on our findings — even when our investigations are demonstrably and self-evidently true.  The common theme in all the censored content: daring to criticize Anthony Fauci, which constitutes a Silicon Valley thought-crime.  Several months ago, WCW released an exposé on the monkeys of Morgan Island, South Carolina, also known as "Monkey Island."  Thousands of primates roam the island, but this is no tropical paradise:  the monkeys are property of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Fauci's division of the National Institutes of Health.  Documents we obtained through the Freedom of Information Act show that every year, hundreds of victims are snatched from the island, then shipped to government animal labs and infected with Ebola, COVID, HIV, and then killed.

Shocking Pfizer Document Reveals 82% of Vaccinated Pregnant Women Suffered Miscarriages.  A recently released confidential document reveals that a startling majority of in utero babies died after pregnant women were injected with the Pfizer vaccine.  Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency (PHMPT) requested documents related to vaccine licensing via a Freedom of Information Act Request, then sued the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  In early January 2022, a federal judge ordered the FDA incrementally release the documents it claimed would take decades to process.  PHMPT has posted Pfizer's confidential documents as they have become available.  In the most recent release, on May 2, 2022, a document titled 'reissue_5.3.6 postmarketing experience.pdf' disclosed on page 12 that by February 8, 2021, 270 women had received the mRNA injection during pregnancy.  But 238 cases were apparently not followed ("no outcome provided").  And, therefore, the pregnancy outcomes for those women are unknown.

Masking: More Harms Than Good?  Extensive evidence in the literature supports the mandatory use of facemasks to reduce the infection rate of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, which causes the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).  However, the effect of mask use on the disease course remains controversial.  This study aimed to determine whether mandatory mask use influenced the case fatality rate in Kansas, USA between August 1st and October 15th 2020.  This study applied secondary data on case updates, mask mandates, and demographic status related to Kansas State, USA.  A parallelization analysis based on county-level data was conducted on these data.  Results were controlled by performing multiple sensitivity analyses and a negative control.

Expert Says Fauci Responsible for Hundreds of Thousands of American Deaths by Blocking Hydroxychloroquine.  Dr. Steven Hatfill, infectious disease expert, says the medical bureaucracy blocked an effective treatment in hydroxychloroquine so they could push through experimental vaccines.  Dr. Hatfill told War Room hydroxychloroquine is proven to be effective and costs roughly 60 cents per pill.  However, the existence of a proven effective treatment would not have allowed Dr. Fauci and FDA's Janet Woodcock to expedite covid vaccines.  "You don't need a vaccine," Dr. Hatfill said.  "It's quite evident that Dr. Fauci, Dr. Woodcock, Dr. [Rick] Bright are responsible for hundreds of thousands of America deaths for causing this drug to pick up a bad name," Dr. Hatfill said.  [Video clip]

Universities reinstate mask mandates around the country.  As the school year draws to an end, American universities around the country are reinstating mask mandates.  The University of California Los Angeles sent out an email to its students on May 26, stating that its mask mandate "will go back into effect beginning Friday, May 27 and remain in place through Wednesday, June 15."  Not all students are on board with the policy change, however.  "We are already one of the strictest schools with COVID; not only do we have to be vaccinated and boosted, but we also have to be tested weekly and fill out a symptom monitoring survey," said Stella Foreman, a freshman at the university.

The Story of COVID Cries Out for Common Sense.  [Scroll down]  I'd been raised by God-fearing parents to have a healthy skepticism of the media and government.  But nothing prepared me for the lies and manipulations that became the story of COVID.  Stories are the most powerful force we have, either to solidify beliefs or to change them.  People quickly invested in the official COVID narrative, trusting Anthony Fauci's assertions that only through mindless submission to the rituals of obsessive cleanliness, masking, and lockdowns would people be saved from illness and death.  Even when evidence surfaced to the contrary, people still clung to their newfound faith.  From my vantage in Luxor, I was able to see the big picture without being engulfed in it.  I noticed how every story popping into my newsfeed parroted state propaganda.  In the 1980s, I'd lived in Yugoslavia under communism and the coordinated, almost hypnotic repetitiveness of the media was beginning to look eerily familiar.

Biden Justice Department appeals ruling that lifted federal mask mandate.  The Department of Justice has appealed a federal judge's ruling that vacated the federal mask mandate for public transportation.  A filing was made Tuesday [5/31/2022], hours before the deadline and more than a month after the DOJ said it had filed a notice of appeal following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention saying it was requesting the challenge.  "None of the district court's quarrels with the CDC order comes close to showing that the CDC has acted outside the 'zone of reasonableness,'" the Justice Department wrote.

Airlines and FAA face lawsuits over COVID-19 vaccine mandates.  The U.S. Freedom Flyers is rolling out a series of federal lawsuits with the goal of making "vaccine mandate type of rules and COVID restrictions ruled unconstitutional."  The volunteer group of transportation professionals filed its first lawsuit against Atlas Air in the Southern District Court of Florida, claiming that vaccine mandates have infringed on their constitutional, religious, and medical rights.  The lawsuit, filed by attorney John Pierce, listed more than 100 plaintiffs who are mostly unvaccinated pilots, flight attendants, and other Atlas staff.

Covid "vaccine" from AstraZeneca found to increase risk of Guillain-Barré and other neurological conditions.  The Trojan horse delivery system utilized in AstraZeneca's Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) "vaccine" appears to be responsible for an increase in rates of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and other neurological problems, new research has revealed.  Scientists from University College London (London's Global University) says cases of GBS in the first two to four weeks following injection with the AstraZeneca shot are on the rise, a phenomenon that is not necessarily being seen with the jabs from Pfizer and Moderna.  While Pfizer and Moderna's shots are made with messenger RNA (mRNA) technology, the AstraZeneca shot uses a more "traditional" viral vector formula containing a weekend chimpanzee virus, the job of which is to deliver the Fauci Flu spike protein into the body.  Experts now believe that this chimp component is responsible for causing GBS, a relatively rare condition demarcated by muscle numbness and pain, as well as difficulty swallowing and sometimes even breathing.

Woolworths employee fired after 10 years for not taking the COVID-19 vaccination.  28 year old Robert Armstrong worked for one of Australia's biggest supermarket chains for 10 years but was fired for not having 2 doses of the experimental COVID-19 vaccination.  Robert went back and forth with emails to management explaining how wrong the situation was trying to force their employee's to get a vaccine to keep their jobs.  "This isn't right people should have a choice."  Woolworths terminated the employment of all their unvaccinated employees three days after Queensland had lifted all the restrictions.  [Video clip]

One Way Government.  The disasters of the Biden administration of the past two years have made more and more clear to the average person how all these "experts" do not actually hold any kind of sacred gift for objectivity.  Not only does being educated in, and dedicated to, a particular field not free you from political bias, but it instead guarantees a particular form of bias.  The official response to Covid by many different Western governments provides a perfect example.  Prior to the pandemic, there was no issue experts were more trusted to handle than public health.  If a strange new disease is sweeping the globe, you want the world's best doctors leading the charge.  And so most people happily placed their faith in highly-credentialed bureaucrats to manage the Covid response.  But it wasn't long before people started noticing how the public health establishment's decision seemed to have very little connection to the actual science.  The WHO praised China's management of the disease despite its obvious and repeated lies about the origin and spread of the pathogen; experts in America initially claimed that masks had little to no impact but then spent months advocating for mandatory masking; social distancing was said to be a precaution and people were forced to stay indoors — until the BLM riots in the summer of 2020 when medical experts suddenly claimed mass gatherings had no impact on the spread of the virus, and so on.

Airlines' mask mandates may soon be reinstated.  Those flying in or out of the United States may soon have to put their masks back on, after the Department of Justice filed an appeal of an April decision that ended the unpopular mask mandate on planes and public transit.  The Centers for Disease Control had first implemented the mandate in February 2021 amid rising COVID cases, but as the number of cases started to drastically decline the mandate became unpopular among both passengers and crew members.  In fact, during a Senate hearing about the financial support airlines received in 2020 and 2021, American Airlines CEO Doug Parker and Southwest CEO Gary Kelly spoke out against the mandate.

Covid Update:  What is the truth?  The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the most manipulated infectious disease events in history, characterized by official lies in an unending stream lead by government bureaucracies, medical associations, medical boards, the media, and international agencies.  We have witnessed a long list of unprecedented intrusions into medical practice, including attacks on medical experts, destruction of medical careers among doctors refusing to participate in killing their patients and a massive regimentation of health care, led by non-qualified individuals with enormous wealth, power and influence.  For the first time in American history a president, governors, mayors, hospital administrators and federal bureaucrats are determining medical treatments based not on accurate scientifically based or even experience based information, but rather to force the acceptance of special forms of care and "prevention" — including remdesivir, use of respirators and ultimately a series of essentially untested messenger RNA vaccines.  For the first time in history medical treatment, protocols are not being formulated based on the experience of the physicians treating the largest number of patients successfully, but rather individuals and bureaucracies that have never treated a single patient — including Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, EcoHealth Alliance, the CDC, WHO, state public health officers and hospital administrators.

Whisteblower's Lawyer:  Pfizer Got Away With Vaccine Fraud Because Government Was Co-Conspirator.  Pfizer has asked a U.S. court to throw out a whistleblower's lawsuit on the basis that the company can't be guilty of fraud, abuse, and protocol violations in its COVID Vaccine clinical trials because its contract with the U.S. government allowed them to skirt regulations and federal laws that typically apply to government contracts.  In other words, Pfizer was allegedly able to make false statements to the government, and lie about the safety and efficacy of its product, "because the government was in on it with them!" according to Robert Barnes, the lead lawyer in the case.  The whistleblower, Brook Jackson, was the regional director for the Ventavia Research Group, the company that was conducting Pfizer's pivotal phase III trial in Texas in 2020.

NYT: Let's face it, the mask mandates don't work.  Do masks prevent transmission of COVID-19?  Yes, reports the New York Times' David Leonhardt — in the laboratory.  In the real world, no data definitively establishes effectiveness of masking, and especially of mask mandates.  The difference matters, Leonhardt warns, because upticks in transmission and hospitalization will likely have policymakers reverting back to mask mandates even though there is no data that shows an impact on either.

Electron microscope images appear to show carbon nanotech, aluminum, thulium in Pfizer and Moderna's covid-19 vaccines.  A Canadian researcher and ER doctor recently put the Pfizer and Moderna covid-19 vaccines under the microscope to see what they are made of.  The electron microscope images show no sign of biological material, not DNA nor the glorified mRNA that the experimental injection was supposed to deliver.  Lead researcher, Dr. Daniel Nagase is a former ER doctor who was persecuted for using ivermectin to treat covid-19 patients in Canada.  On involuntary leave since 2021, Dr. Nagase has been traveling through Alberta and British Columbia to educate others on the treatment options for covid-19.

International study finds COVID jab mandates do more harm than good.  Government mandates that citizens submit to COVID-19 vaccines have negatively impacted personal liberties and welfare, trust in public institutions, and confidence in vaccines more generally, according to a new study conducted by a group of researchers from prestigious medical institutions around the world.  Published in BMJ (British Medical Journal) Global Health, the paper "The unintended consequences of COVID-19 vaccine policy: why mandates, passports and restrictions may cause more harm than good" was written by scientists from Johns Hopkins University, Oxford, Harvard, the University of Washington, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, the University of Toronto, and Dalhousie University in Halifax.

Monkeypox Update: There has been a significant development, says Dr. Robert Malone.  A week ago, Dr. Robert Malone wrote an article stating "what we do know" about monkeypox.  Today he has published an update.  "I almost cannot believe that I am writing this, but since my original Substack article on this topic, we had the reveal of an Event 201-style wargame exercise modelled around a bioterror-related release of an engineered monkeypox virus 'caused by a terrorist attack using a pathogen engineered in a laboratory with inadequate biosafety and biosecurity provisions and weak oversight'," he wrote today.

Media Silent As NIH Study Finds Long COVID Isn't Real.  A new National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is raising questions about "long COVID", suggesting those who claim to be suffering "long COVID" months or even years after Covid infection are likely suffering from anxiety.  The NIH study found that there was no evidence of long-term COVID-19 infection in patients who were six or more weeks removed from the onset of symptoms, even if those patients reported that they were experiencing "long COVID."  Further, the study found that individuals who reported having long COVID were disproportionately women and individuals with history of anxiety disorders.

How the COVID Vaccines Kill.  With each passing day, the news connected to the COVID shots grows worse.  That the injections don't prevent COVID — or even its spread — has been known for months, and post-injection problems encompass almost everything that can go wrong with a body.  "Not a single organ, not a single bodily function, is unharmed" after one of these shots, said Arne Burkhardt, a professor of forensics at Reutlingen's Pathological Institute.  So little has been written about why "side effects" such as myocarditis have popped up that one can't help but wonder:  Does anybody understand how these shots work?

What have we gotten from two years of mask-wearing?  It's truly hard to overstate the damage done to a generation of children by the two-year masking regime.  From language and developmental inhibition to social and behavioral anxiety, these Chinese cloths have created a generation of bumbling fools.  So, was it worth it?  In a preprint published in the Lancet, Ambarish Chandra of the University of Toronto and Tracy Beth Høeg of the University of California at Davis replicated a CDC study comparing counties with school mandates to those without mandates.  However, rather than using the CDC's artificial and arbitrary number of counties and duration of study, they extended the study using a larger sample of districts and a longer time interval, employing almost six times as much data as the original study.  Using this updated method to measure the relationship between mask mandates and per-capita pediatric cases, they found "no significant relationship between mask mandates and case rates."  The study observed over 1,800 counties from July through October 2021, which is presumed to be the largest observational sample ever conducted on the mask issue.

The Mafia Tactic that Brought Down CNN.  [Scroll down]  The right thing to do is always what the State is promoting at the current moment, even when radically incompatible with what the State promoted a day earlier.  So one moment, every American is bound to stay home and Save Lives!  The next moment, Americans are not only permitted, but practically obliged to protest in large numbers against Racial Injustice!  Protesting for any other cause, however, rendered one a depraved "freedumb person."  But "freedom" recovers its status as a foundational moral value (and its traditional spelling) in the context of promoting Ukrainian Freedom!  And so it goes.

We're stuck with COVID on 'chronic' basis, says Fauci.  COVID is here to stay, the country's top infectious disease expert said Sunday.  The persistence of the virus means yearly vaccine booster shots could be in store for everyone, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House chief medical adviser, told PIX 11 in an interview.  "We're going to be dealing with this virus on a chronic basis," Fauci said.  "We really hope ... it will reach a level low enough that it doesn't disrupt us to the extent that it has over the past couple of years."  In recent weeks, COVID case numbers have been increasing nationwide.  Average daily case numbers have risen about 26% around the country, according to Johns Hopkins University.  Average daily case numbers in New York City have nearly doubled, to 4,214 as of Tuesday, according to the Health Department.

On the other hand...
New Study Finds That Long COVID May Not Actually Exist.  A new National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is raising questions about just how real "long COVID" is.  The study found that there was no evidence of long-term COVID-19 infection in patients who were six or more weeks removed from the onset of symptoms, even if those patients reported that they were experiencing "long COVID."  Further, the study found that individuals who reported having long COVID were disproportionately women and individuals with history of anxiety disorders.

The Shameful Six:  Never listen to these people again.  [#2] Dr. Anthony Fauci has been transformed by his insane fans into a secular saint despite having overseen and encouraged a series of utterly disastrous US policies on COVID, from his embrace of useless lockdowns to his backing of the pause on Johnson & Johnson vaccine that cost countless lives by cratering US vaccine uptake to his vacillation on school closures.  Plus, he worked to squelch discussion of the theory that COVID escaped accidentally from a lab, specifically the Wuhan Institute of Virology (which studied coronaviruses and had previous safety issues).  This idea Fauci took seriously in private but dismissed in public — which means the threat is still a viable one.

The World Health Organisation has lost all credibility.  Let's be honest: is there anyone out there who has faith in the ability of the World Health Organisation (WHO) to tackle a future pandemic?  Any lingering hope that the WHO might be an organisation fit to be trusted with global heath concerns has pretty well evaporated with the election, by acclamation, of China as one of the 12 members of its executive board on Friday.  It is true, of course, that an international body must have representation from all over the world if it is going to win the near-universal cooperation it needs in order to operate.  It can't be led entirely by western democracies and wealthy South Asian countries even if they might have the best skills available; you need members able to tap into every culture and religion on Earth.  But ought we really be trusting leadership of the WHO to a government which is not merely a malignant dictatorship, accused of human rights abuses against its own citizens — but which has also obstructed an investigation into the high likelihood that it accidentally caused the last pandemic?

Shocking Pfizer Study Data Reveals 82% of Jabbed Pregnant Women Had Miscarriages, So They Stopped Counting.  Pfizer's court-ordered compliance with a FOIA request has resulted in tons of damaging data being dropped every month.  Their Covid-19 "vaccine" research, development, and implementation were pocked with warning signs that the drugs were neither safe nor effective.  But the most recent release may be the [worst] of all as it not only reveals the drugs are unsafe, but that Pfizer tried to cover it up by manipulating the numbers.  It's so blatant that it's highly unlikely it was just an error.  Life News reported their study included 270 pregnant women.  The first 34 had outcomes reported, but the numbers were so hideous that they did not follow the remaining 236 test subjects.  Considering they were on the verge of the greatest pharmaceutical windfall in history, Pfizer decided it was better to run away from a problem rather than reveal it further.

Moderna Throwing Away 30 Million Doses of COVID Vaccine Because 'Nobody Wants Them'.  Our betters in the World Economic Forum (WEF) gathered in Davos this week to decide what's best for the planet and everyone on it (especially themselves). But Stéphane Bancel, CEO of Moderna, was sad.  He was disappointed that the plebs don't want his company's revered COVID-19 vaccines.  "It's sad to say, I'm in the process of throwing 30 million doses into the garbage, because nobody wants them," lamented Bancel as he participated in a panel discussion.  "We have a big demand problem."  Actually, that sounds like a big over-supply problem to me, but what do I know?

Canada: More People in Alberta Have Died from Covid Than Were Admitted to ICU, Why is this Important?  Having another look through the Alberta Provincial Covid data last week, Sheldon Yakiwchuk noticed that over the last four months more people died with or from Covid than had been admitted into Alberta's intensive care units ("ICU").  "This isn't a new phenomenon," Yakiwchuk wrote.  "The long and the short of it boils down to, a lot of these people who died — didn't actually die from Covid but were already on 'goals of care' that won't actually allow their admission into ICU — they are already terminally ill and this was before they came into contact with Covid."  Goals of care are the levels of intervention a patient would want should they encounter serious illness.

Yet Another Lockdown, and a Fantasy is Revealed.  On the weekend of May 20, mainland China, recognized by the business community as "a low-cost country," announced yet another citywide COVID lockdown.  This time, it's the northeastern coastal city of Tianjin, with a population of 14 million, the primary seaport for the nation's capital city, Beijing.  Tianjin is one of the five biggest cities in China, and is one of the busiest seaports in the world — or at least, it was until this week.  Tianjin is a huge manufacturing center, producing cars, clothing, petrochemicals, large and small machinery, even Airbus airplanes (remember when the name Airbus meant it was made in France?). Tianjin is a huge, sprawling, low-cost city, in a huge, sprawling, low-cost country.  Why has so much of the world's manufacturing moved to Tianjin, and to China in general?  Don't call anyone in Tianjin today to ask.  They won't be in the office.  They're restricted to their homes, as soldiers and bureaucrats with megaphones march down residential streets, enforcing the lockdown.

Florida IG Rejects Conspiracist Rebekah Jones's 'Unsubstantiated' Covid Cover-up Claims.  A former dashboard manager at the Florida Department of Health made "unsubstantiated" claims that Governor Ron DeSantis's administration fired her because she refused to obey her superiors' instructions to fudge the state's Covid-19 data, a new investigation has found.  The extensive report from the Health Department's Office of Inspector General found "insufficient evidence" that Rebekah Jones was ordered to falsify, alter, or misrepresent Covid positivity rates on the state COVID-19 Data and Surveillance dashboard that she helped build.  In December 2020, Jones alleged that former Florida deputy secretary of health Dr. Shamarial Roberson, a reputable chronic-disease epidemiologist, pressured her to "delete cases and deaths" to sugarcoat the state's handling of the Covid crisis.  Jones later backtracked, arguing instead on her now-suspended Twitter account that Roberson "asked me to go into the raw data and manually alter figures."

Here's what really happened with Covid.  [Thread reader]  Global elites had ramped up significant efforts to reshape the world to address a host of inequalities and imagined boogeymen like climate change.  These global elites were bolstered by a host of corrupt institutions which included the WHO ("World Health Organization"), big pharmaceutical companies, and world wealth and health players like Bill Gates and the WEF.  With the emergence of a new virus these groups pounced at the vulnerable moment to put their plans into action and retool the world with a host of proposals — this was known as The Great Reset.  The Coronavirus response was just the first sortie in this plan.  Govts across the world, under the threat of serious mortality (real or imagined), caved to the plan of action which utilized never-before imagined cram downs on individual rights, massive expenses, and enhanced authority overhauls to set the stage for a shift of power.  Free speech, right to assembly, right to bodily autonomy, representative government all fell within months of the first COVID-19 cases announced in almost every country.  This newfound power and framework allowed this movement to latch on the decaying carcass of fragile democracies, societal empathies, and eggshell-walking politicos anxious about upcoming elections.  Unprecedented global lockdowns of populations disrupted the entire flow of commerce and relationships.  Trillions of tax dollars flowed into the coffers of every connected and corrupt institution under the guise of "protecting" the global populace from this apocalyptic pathogen.  Disrupted businesses were "bought" off with zero-cost loans and grants to keep employees onboard and keep the money flowing so as not to destroy the economies all at once.  A massive global testing regime was set up to catch the widest number of COVID-19 infections possible.  The chosen test array (the PCR test) could pick up remnants of a virus at 5 days after infection or even 75 days. [...]

Really Big Brother:  WHO Pandemic Treaty Readies Global Vaccine Passport System.  In the biggest story few are talking about, the World Health Organization has announced plans for an international pandemic treaty that may involve a digital passport and digital ID system.  The treaty would also grant the WHO new governing authority over all 194 UN member states.  The World Health Organization, who totally botched COVID and failed to get tough on China, wants more power to make more decisions over more territories than ever before.  How's that sound?  Members of the House Freedom Caucus, led by Republican Reps.  Scott Perry (R-PA) and Jim Jordan (R-OH), have written a letter to President Joe Biden demanding he oppose the global pandemic treaty or "at the very least, push serious reforms."

Aviators, medical experts call on airline industry to end pilot vaccine mandates.  A coalition of groups representing pilots, airline passengers, aviation workers, and medical experts around the world is calling for an end to all COVID-19 vaccine mandates in the air travel industry as well as an independent review of data that could shed light on the true impact of the shots.  The Global Aviation Advocacy Coalition, which bills itself as "unit[ing] passengers and aviation sector personnel in the pursuit of flight safety and freedom," is composed of more than a dozen groups spanning the United States, Canada, and Europe, including Free to Fly Canada, Move Freely America, Aussie Freedom Flyers, UK Medical Freedom Alliance, the International Medical Alliance, Global Covid Summit, Canadian Covid Care Alliance, Association of American Physicians & Surgeons, and more.

Is the COVID Pandemic about to Get Ugly?  For a pandemic to be brought under control, a sufficient part of the population needs to acquire sterilizing immunity so that transmission among individuals can be minimized and herd immunity of the whole population can be achieved.  COVID mass vaccinations have been a medical disaster in the U.S. and many other countries because the vaccines allow high levels of transmission of the virus and block our innate and naturally acquired immunity.  As a result of this high level of COVID infection spread, the current lull in virulence (severe outcomes and deaths) will soon skyrocket to levels far higher than 2020.  This warning that the pandemic is "far from over" comes from Geert Vanden Bossche, a well known vaccinologist based in Belgium who has been ringing alarm bells for over a year.  Geert is not alone in coming to this conclusion, but he is one of the few prominent researchers speaking out.

COVID-19 vaccines contain a virus far deadlier than SARS-CoV-2.  Most of the vaccine deaths recorded by the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) in more than three decades happened last year following the rollout of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines.  There had been various reports of healthy people, including athletes, dying after getting vaccinated — but mainstream media and social media platforms are intent on censoring them.  There had been talks about nanotechnology, the use of spike protein, graphene oxide and graphene hydroxide and all sorts of things.  About a year ago, glyphosate — a weed killer — was found in the vaccines.  This led many to suspect that big pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer are introducing something into the vaccines that are designed to cause detrimental effects to the body.  It's almost like there's a sleeper cell in the body that can be triggered based on the chemical ingredient in the vaccine.

Dr. Fauci warns about 'the normalization of untruths'.  While delivering a speech during Princeton University's 2022 Class Day on Monday [5/23/2022], Dr. Anthony Fauci warned against accepting "the normalization of untruths."  "Sadly, elements of our society have grown increasingly inured to a cacophony of falsehoods and lies that often stand largely unchallenged, ominously leading to ... acceptance of what I call the normalization of untruths.  We see this happen daily with falsehoods propagated through a range of information platforms by a spectrum of people, including, sad to say, certain elected officials in positions of power," Fauci said.

Philadelphia school district reinstates mask requirement.  The Schools District of Philadelphia announced that beginning this week students and staff must once again don COVID-19 masks in classrooms.  The move was prompted by a general rise in virus case numbers across the country, and especially concentrated in the Northeast.  The district made the announcement Friday, citing the rise in case numbers and a recommendation from the Philadelphia Department of Public Health for universal mask-wearing.  Masks will be required at all times on school campuses and while traveling to-and-from schools in buses and vans.

Fox News:  John Roberts Breaks The Silence About Vaccine Injuries.  Two months ago, I helped to publicize the story (375,000 page views and counting!) that Fox News took money from the Biden regime to push COVID vaccine propaganda on their network relentlessly.  Fox News (like almost all the other corporate media outlets) did not reveal this crucial fact to its audience — an astonishing breach of journalistic ethics that should never be forgiven or forgotten.  I wrote at the time that Fox News was also coercing its own employees into getting vaccinated even though the vast majority were working from home: [...] In the back of my mind, for the last eight weeks, I kept wondering when the reckoning would come for Fox News.  How long would it take for a prominent employee to be injured by the COVID vaccines?  And who would dare to publicly disclose that injury in the face of Fox News' ongoing campaign to push Big Pharma's diabolical shots?  And the answer is:  John Roberts.

Top Airline Pilot Suffers Cardiac Arrest Between Flights Post Mandatory COVID Vaccination.  Robert Snow, a pilot for American Airlines, one of the top 3 largest airlines in the country, has 31 years of commercial airline experience and additionally seven years of experience as a U.S. Air Force pilot.  Snow says that he might not be able to fly again after he suffered a cardiac arrest only 6 or 7 minutes after landing a plane he piloted from Denver to Dallas Fort Worth (DFW).  He still had two more flights scheduled on April 9.  He believes that his cardiac arrest is connected to the Johnson and Johnson COVID vaccine he was forced to take in order to keep his job on Nov. 4, 2021, even though he already had natural immunity from previously contracting the virus.  Dr. Peter McCullough, a world-renowned cardiologist, told Newsmax that Snow's case fits a "pattern."

CNN Overstates Public Risk of Monkeypox, Repeats Biden Lies.  CNN wants you to be as afraid of monkeypox as you were of COVID, and we all need to panic.  Biden said everyone should be aware of monkeypox, so the media uncritically reports the same.  But the threat patterns are not the same for the general public, just as they weren't for COVID which preyed on obese elderly patients.  Monkeypox, by comparison, seems to prey on gay men engaged in high-risk sexual activity.  You would never know that by reading CNN though.

Cardiologist Says 30 Percent of Vaccinated Pilots Would Fail Health Screenings Due to Vaccine Injuries.  Joshua Yoder, an airline pilot and co-founder of the U.S. Freedom Flyers said during an interview Wednesday that a cardiologist told him that if the airlines were conducting certain health screenings, 30 percent of the pilots currently flying would probably be disqualified due to vaccine-induced heart conditions.  Yoder told tech millionaire and Vaccine Safety Research Foundation founder Steve Kirsch that his group has received hundreds of reports about pilots flying planes while suffering from adverse side effects from the COVID vaccines.  The most prominent health issues being reported, the pilot noted, include chest pains, myocarditis, and pericarditis.  Yoder said that three vaccinated pilot called him yesterday and said that they're "currently flying with chest pains," and another one said he is being treated by a cardiologist.

The Right to Refuse Any Medical Procedure, Treatment, or Vaccine.  If the last two years have shown us anything, it's the importance of keeping our liberties even if watching the erosion of the American fabric.  All across the US, violators of the US Constitution are leading states down a dark pathway.  Citizens are standing up, and politicians are getting a strong message.  When the federal government issues any guidance, your governor can choose or refuse compliance. [...] Now, Pennsylvania will be attempting another amendment change in its "Declaration of Rights."HB (House bill) 2013 will attempt to add Section 30, which gives all Pennsylvanians the right to medical freedom.  This addition will allow an individual the right to refuse any medical procedure, treatment, injection, vaccine, or prophylactic intervention without question.

The Bonnie and Clyde of Bioethics.  A friendly reminder:  For 12 years, Fauci's wife has been the head of clinical bioethics at the NIH.  Absolutely no one in government has seen any undue risk or conflict of interest here.  To my knowledge, no one in power has even taken a look at potential problems with this arrangement.  And perhaps they should.

Ron DeSantis:  There Is 'No Way' Florida Will Support W.H.O. Global Pandemic Treaty.  There is "no way" Florida will ever support the World Health Organization's (W.H.O.) global pandemic treaty, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said on Monday [5/23/2022].  "We in Florida, there is no way we will ever support this W.H.O. thing ... that's not going to happen.  No way," DeSantis said during a press conference in Cape Coral, Florida.  "But you saw, I mean, you saw a lot of these elites advocate very pernicious policies," he added, noting that "part of the reason people want to move here is because we rejected those policies, but they advocated very pernicious policies, including locking kids out of school."

More Evidence for Early Treatment.  [Scroll down]  One of the key takeaways of the article is the apparent malfeasance of the World Health Organization, governments, Trusted News Initiative (TNI) and old media to silence the successes of Ivermectin in countries like India.  But as stated above, randomized clinical trials that have been underpowered, started late within the disease time course (after viral load is gone already largely cleared — important for an anti-viral drug for instance) and/or under dosed have been rampant.  Normally, most drug studies have pre-clinical animal studies and dose escalation studies that significantly address these issues prior to clinical trial start date.  But time and again, these types of studies have not been concluded prior to the start of the trial.  Instead, intuition and opinion seems to be driving clinical trial study design.  There is no "gold standard" in that.  Garbage in, garbage out.  How does a randomized clinical trial for an anti-viral set an enrollment initiation date for initial administration of the anti-viral AFTER the known date of viral elimination by the body?  Yet, time and again during this pandemic, this is what has happened in these "gold standard" randomized clinical trials!

In rebuke to Pentagon, Navy board finds 3-0 for vax objector amid questions of mandate's lawfulness.  In a stinging rebuke to the Pentagon, a Navy administrative separation board voted unanimously to retain an officer who refused to comply with the military's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  Navy Lt. Billy Moseley, who has been an officer for 22 years, could have chosen to retire from the military when he was ordered to receive the COVID vaccine.  He also could have submitted a Religious Accommodation Request, since he objected to the vaccine for religious reasons.  Risking his retirement, Moseley chose instead to take his case to the administrative separation board after learning "that the Navy and the other services intended to implement a blanket denial policy," according to a press release from his attorney, R. Davis Younts.

Biden Was Asked By CNN Reporter If He Had A Message For Kim Jong-un But There Was Nothing In The Teleprompter So He "Improvised".  Biden's trip to South Korea has been a disaster so far!  Footage of Biden landing in South Korea raised even more controversies.  Watch as he descends the steps of Air Force One wearing a mask, and then takes off the mask as soon as he comes into contact with other people.  It's science.  [Video clip]

The Covid-19 Vaccination Massacre.  Over two years have gone by since the Covid-19 staged PSYOP was thrust onto the world's population, fooling the masses into believing that a phony virus (and all its hokey counterparts) existed and that a new type of vaccine was the only answer in saving humanity.  At that time, in November, 2020, right before the Covid-19 vaccines were dispensed onto the public, I spoke out and forewarned that the mRNA technology within the vaccines made them bioweapons, and that millions would be harmed and die if they took the injections.  Time has proven me right.  By September of 2021, my warnings were substantiated.  VAERS data from CDC, which reports American vaccine injuries, provided a clear clue that the vaccines were weapons of mass destruction — 742,349 vaccine takers suffered adverse reactions (including death) comprising of heart failure, blood clots, strokes, brain illnesses, inflamed spinal cords, seizures, allergic reactions, autoimmune diseases, arthritis, miscarriage, infertility, deafness, blindness, muscle weakness and loss, and sleep disorders.  By April, 2022, VAERS showed a combined total of 1,247,131 injuries and deaths.  And because only 1% of injuries from Covid vaccines are reported, it is reasonable to expect that actual deaths and injuries can be up to five times higher.  No other type of vaccine over the last 30 years has ever caused this much impairment in such a short time.

FDA Dumps More Pfizer Documents:  Why Were So Many Adverse Events Reported as 'Unrelated' to Vaccine?  The latest release of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine documents raises questions about how frequently adverse events experienced by clinical trial participants were reported as "unrelated" to the vaccine.  The 80,000-page document cache released May 2 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) includes an extensive set of Case Report Forms (CRFs) from Pfizer trials conducted at various locations in the U.S.  The documents also include the "third interim report" from BioNTech's trials conducted in Germany (accompanied by a synopsis of this report and a database of adverse events from this particular set of trials).  The FDA released the documents, which pertain to the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the vaccine, as part of a court-ordered disclosure schedule stemming from an expedited Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed in August 2021.

White House Looks to Be Planning for 'Wave of Infection,' Just in Time for Midterms, Advises Indoor Masking.  During his Sunday morning [5/22/2022] appearance on ABC's "This Week," Dr. Ashish Jha, the dean of the Brown University School of Public Health and the White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, spoke of an expected surge of Wuhan coronavirus cases for the coming fall and winter.  In other words, the surge is expected to come right before the November midterms.  [Tweet]  When asked by host Martha Raddatz about the expected surge, Dr. Jha explained they are indeed "planning for a variety of scenarios including a wave of infection this fall and winter," which he used as an opportunity to push "making that sure we have a new generation of vaccines that are being worked on right now, that we have availability of treatments and testing, and we have the resources."

Archbishop Viganò: World Health Organization treaty is an attack on national sovereignty, part of a 'global coup'.  In the coming days, the Nations that adhere to the World Health Organization (WHO) will vote on resolutions regarding the WHO's management of pandemics.  These resolutions will transfer sovereignty regarding the health of citizens to a supranational body that is largely financed by the pharmaceutical industry and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.  If these resolutions are approved by a majority, the WHO will have exclusive international authority in the case of a pandemic to impose all the rules, including quarantines, lockdowns, obligatory vaccinations, and vaccine passports.  It should also be borne in mind that this organization enjoys immunity, and thus its members cannot be either tried or convicted if they commit crimes.  Unelected technocrats will paradoxically have more power than that which citizens confer on their representatives by means of their democratic vote.  Given that the yielding of sovereignty is considered the crime of high treason by the laws of every nation, and that parliaments may not legislate against the interests of the Nation, much less violate the natural liberties and fundamental rights of the citizens whom they represent, I believe that it will not escape anyone's notice that this attempt by the WHO to appropriate a power that properly belongs to individual nations is intended to impede any sort of opposition to the "Agenda 2030," which in the field of healthcare also aims to accomplish the drastic reduction of medical and hospital services, the privatization of the health industry, and disease prevention by means of vaccines.

Alarm Sounded Over WHO's Global Pandemic Treaty.  In the wake of the myriad failures during the covid pandemic response, World Health Organization officials did little self reflection.  Instead, they decided that they needed even more power over the global population.  Subsequently, the idea of a Global Pandemic Treaty was born. [...] The WHO will convene next week, and one of the issues of its focus will be that treaty.  It will then deliver a progress report to the 76th World Health Assembly in 2023, with the aim of adopting the instrument by 2024.  Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson took a look at the treaty and began sounding the alarm.

Non-Natural Cause Deaths.  [Thread reader]  Pharma trolls and Covid panic aficionados this is the tally of young people you murdered (so far 86,800).  This is different from an unstoppable virus doing its work.

NYPD puts 4,650 vaccine firings on hold: insiders.  The city's vaccine mandate has been put on "pause" for the NYPD so the force can avoid losing nearly 5,000 cops and employees as the weather — and crime — heats up, The [New York] Post has learned.  Currently, 91 percent of the NYPD's uniformed cops and other personnel are vaccinated, City Hall says.  That leaves an estimated 4,659 NYPD employees unvaccinated despite a deadline to get the shots by Oct. 29.  "In a nutshell, no decisions will be made, no further members will be forced to leave until further notice," said a veteran NYPD sergeant, explaining the unwritten rule.  "There hasn't been any memo, just basically keep everything status quo and if issues arise we will revisit it down the road."

Mass die-off:  Close to 180,000 died within 60 days of COVID-19 vaccination — England statistics office makes stunning admission.  The Office for National Statistics (ONS) in England revealed that a total of 69,466 people died within 28 days and 178,874 people died within 60 days of getting injected with the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine between January 2021 and March 2022.  ONS published the data on deaths by vaccination status on May 16.  The report included a chart titled "Number of Deaths within 28 Days of COVID-19 Vaccination in England."  The total fatalities were broken down to 7,953 people who died positive for the virus and 61,513 people who expired due to other causes within 28 days of vaccination.  During the same timeframe, a total of 14,049 people died from coronavirus and a total of 164,825 people died from other causes within 60 days of vaccination.

Unvaccinated cadets will graduate, but won't receive commissions, Air Force Academy says.  Three U.S. Air Force Academy cadets whose refusal to get COVID-19 vaccines threatened their May 25 graduation — along with the risk of a repayment demand for six-figure tuition costs — will be awarded their degrees, officials said Saturday [5/21/2022].  Following a "standard review" of graduation requirements for this year's senior class, the Academy's board recommended awarding Bachelor of Science degrees "for the three cadets refusing the COVID-19 vaccine," a press release from the Colorado Springs, Colorado, school said.

Young Boy Died With Evidence of Heart Inflammation After COVID-19 Vaccination:  CDC.  A young boy died after getting Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine and evidence was found of the boy suffering from heart inflammation, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) researchers revealed on May 19.  The male child experienced fever 12 days after getting the dose, which was his first.  A day later, he experienced abdominal pain and vomiting.  He died that day.  "This patient had a rapid clinical course.  From the time they started experiencing their abdominal pain day 13 after dose one until the time they were brought into the [emergency department] and subsequently died was on the order of a couple of hours," Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, a CDC vaccine analyst, said during a virtual meeting.  Histopathological evidence of myocarditis was present on autopsy, and that was resolved to be the cause of death," he added.

Louisiana Supreme Court rebukes Democrat governor in siding with pastor who defied COVID lockdown.  Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards violated Pastor Tony Spell's freedom of religion by instituting COVID-19 restrictions that forbade him from holding in-person church services, the Louisiana Supreme Court ruled May 13.  The Shreveport Times reports that Spell defied Edwards' March 2020 limitation of in-person gatherings to ten people, for which he was subjected to criminal charges.  While lower courts ruled against Spell, the state's highest court determined that "certain provisions of two executive orders, as applied to defendant, violate his fundamental right to exercise religion, do not survive strict scrutiny, and are thus unconstitutional."

California school district reinstates indoor mask mandate.  A Northern California school district is reimposing indoor mask requirements for students, staff and visitors amid an uptick in COVID-19 cases.  The Berkeley Unified School District on Friday [5/20/2022] said the new mandate go into effect on Monday, citing the advice of health officials.  "As you can see above, Dr. Hernandez has strongly recommended that the district use our authority to reinstate a mask mandate," district Superintendent Brent Stephens said about a message he received from city Health Officer Lisa Hernandez earlier in the week.  "Because we are not a health agency, we must rely on these experts to guide us."

FDA denies generic drug fluvoxamine emergency use authorization as COVID treatment.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has rejected a request to grant emergency use authorization to a cheap generic drug for the treatment of Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).  This decision has sparked controversy and drawn criticism from many healthcare workers.  The drug in question is fluvoxamine, an FDA-approved selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) that is usually used as a treatment for mental health conditions such as obsessive-compulsive disorder and major depressive disorder.  In December 2021, Dr. David Boulware, a leading infectious diseases specialist and professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School, submitted an emergency use authorization application for fluvoxamine to be used as an outpatient treatment for COVID-19 positive patients and to prevent the progression of their cases to hospitalization.

Tucker Carlson Warns America That Biden is About to Hand the WHO Immense Power Over Our Lives.  Fox News host Tucker Carlson is warning Americans about an ominous 'pandemic treaty' that would hand the World Health Organization immense power over Americans' lives.  [Video clip]  "So what will this operational control mean?" Carlson said.  "Let's be specific right off the bat.  The treaty demands, quote, 'national and global coordinated actions to address the misinformation, disinformation and stigmatization that undermine public health.'  Oh, here we go.  Right to censorship."

Whitmer Pledged To Cut Her Pay for Duration of Pandemic.  She Gave Up After Five Months.  In early 2020, Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer (D.) pledged to give back a portion of her salary for the duration of the coronavirus pandemic.  But she stopped after 5 months — even as her gathering and mask restrictions dragged on for more than a year.  Whitmer in April 2020 said she would "lead by example" and return 10 percent of her $159,300 salary to the state's treasury department during the pandemic.  According to state records obtained by MIRS News, however, Whitmer ended the pledge just five months later in September after cutting three checks totaling $4,917 back to the state.  The Democrat's pandemic restrictions lasted significantly longer than her self-imposed pay cut pledge — Whitmer limited indoor gatherings and required face masks in public for 15 months.

China's Censors Aim to Contain Dissent During Harsh COVID-19 Lockdowns.  As Shanghai enters its seventh week of COVID-19 lockdowns, China's censors have been hard at work trying to contain an eruption of public outrage and enforce the leadership's prohibition of any public debate or calls to reconsider its strategy.  Spikes in censorship and social media activism occur periodically in China, particularly in moments of crisis.  As in past periods of extreme regime sensitivity, there are ample examples from recent weeks of censorship "overkill," including restrictions on a WeChat account belonging to the National People's Congress, seemingly innocuous phrases like "happy birthday," a hashtag with the first line of China's national anthem, and references to the Hollywood film "La La Land."

Rubio grills Fauci:  How is it Americans with COVID can't get in country, but illegals can?  Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida asked Dr. Anthony Fauci — director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease — Tuesday to explain why Americans cannot return to the country if they test positive for COVID-19, but illegal aliens apprehended at the southern border can enter.  "I believe the United States is the only major Western country that now requires its citizens to test negative for COVID before they can get on an airplane and reenter the country," Rubio told Fauci during Fauci's appearance at a hearing of a subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Why Is Joe Biden Still President?  The U.S. recently passed the 1 million mark for COVID-19 deaths, a grim milestone recognized with the lowering of flags to half staff around the country.  More than 60% of those deaths have come during the bungling tenure of President Joe Biden, who said in a late-October 2020 debate with Donald Trump that the president should be kicked out of the White House because of how many had died from the virus on his watch.  Based on his own standard, Biden should be back in his Delaware basement. [...] Though the Democrats and the press ghoulishly held Trump directly responsible for COVID deaths during his last year in office, we think it's distasteful, and careless, to blame Biden for lives lost to the virus while he's been president.  There's only so much a White House can do during a pandemic.  But it's nevertheless important to point out that Biden not only set a standard that he then should have been required to live by, he also promised the American people that "I will take care of this.  I will end this."  It was a lie no one should have believed, a promise impossible to keep.

NPR's strict masking policy encourages coworkers to tattle on violators.  National Public Radio is encouraging staffers to squeal on each other if they do not comply with the company's Draconian mask-wearing policy in the office.  According to a strongly-worded memo sent out Thursday, NPR employees are not only required to wear masks in the office, but if they see someone who isn't complying with the mandate, they are encouraged to correct their coworker or rat them out to higher-ups.  "If you notice someone who has forgotten their mask, you might tell them, "Hey, you forgot your mask," the memo said, adding they can also let a superior know so they can "remind" them or they can get human resources involved.  Repeat offenses could lead to the maskless offender getting fired.

Who Cares What the WHO Says?  The proposed amendments by the U.S. to the International Health Regulations do not degrade the sovereignty of the United States.  The proposed amendments will reduce the power of a country to prevent the World Health Organization from declaring that a public health emergency exists in this country.  There is nothing in the proposed amendments that obligates the U.S. to accept any such declaration by the WHO.  I cannot find anything in any American law or treaty to which the United States is a signatory that obligates any part of the federal government or any state government to agree with any such declaration by the WHO or in any way adopt or abide by any such declaration.

Dr. Robert Malone: 'Rotten to the Core' FDA Knew COVID Vaccines Could Spur Viral Reactivation, But Said Nothing.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was aware early on that the COVID vaccines could spur viral reactivation of diseases like the varicella-zoster virus (shingles) in some people, but chose not to disclose it, according to renowned vaccinologist and physician Dr. Robert Malone.  "They knew about the viral reactivation," Malone declared during a recent panel discussion hosted by Del Bigtree with fellow Global COVID Summit physicians Dr. Ryan Cole, and Dr. Richard Urso.  Malone, the original inventor of mRNA and DNA vaccination technology, explained that he had been "very actively engaged" with senior personnel at the FDA in the Office of the Commissioner when the vaccines were being rolled out.  The group, he noted, included Dr. William DuMouchel, the Chief Statistical Scientist for Oracle Health Sciences.

SARS-CoV2 Spike protein is a toxin.  First, a quick overview of the various "factchecking" organization statements.  How many people developed brain damages or lost their life or that of a loved one because of accepting a vaccine based on the falsehoods propagated by these grossly unqualified "factcheckers"? Do they have criminal liability for their falsehoods and propaganda?  As you look through this, please keep in mind that the FDA has approved three doses of these mRNA vaccines for administration to all of our 5-11 year old children.  Under emergency use authorization, of course.  Even though there is no medical emergency.

New law protects docs who prescribe ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine.  Reacting to the suppression of certain "controversial" treatments for COVID-19, Missouri passed a law that bans pharmacists from questioning doctors who prescribe ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine for their patients.  The measure passed the Missouri House by a 130-4 vote last week and now is at the desk of Republican Gov. Mike Parsons, the Kansas City Star reported.  The bill, the paper said, would bar state medical licensing boards from punishing or removing the medical licenses of doctors who "lawfully" prescribe the two drugs.

Key NIH Research Executive Received 70 Secret Royalty Payments.  Two key National Institutes for Health (NIH) executives in positions of influence on decisions about who gets grants from the agency received a total of 77 previously undisclosed royalty payments from outside firms between 2010 and 2014.  The secret royalty payments, which were first reported by The Epoch Times, are among thousands estimated to total at least $350 million paid between 2010 and 2020.  Former NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins received 14 payments, Anthony Fauci, who heads NIH's National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), received 23, and Clifford Lane, Fauci's chief deputy, got eight payments.  Acting NIH Director Lawrence Tabak conceded during questioning last week by Rep. John Moolenaar (R-Mich.) that the undisclosed royalties have the "appearance of a conflict of interest," but he insisted that the agency has sufficient internal safeguards to prevent such problems.  Federal law and ethics regulations bar federal employees from activities that present either the appearance or an actual conflict of interest.

FDA green lights Pfizer COVID booster for children 5 to 11 years old.  The US Food and Drug Administration gave the green light Tuesday to a booster shot of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11.  In a statement, the FDA said healthy children in the target demographic can get a booster at least five months after their second dose of the vaccine.  Booster shots could begin as early as Friday, reported NBC News.  "While it has largely been the case that COVID-19 tends to be less severe in children than adults, the Omicron wave has seen more kids getting sick with the disease and being hospitalized, and children may also experience longer-term effects, even following initially mild disease," said FDA Commissioner Robert Califf.

Mariners Pitcher, Robbie Ray Ruled Out of Blue Jays Series Over Vaxx Status.  Seattle Mariners' left-hand pitcher and reigning Cy Young winner Robbie Ray is expected to sit out the team's three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays this week.  Ray is expected to return to the mound against the Boston Red Sox on Friday.  [Tweet]  While the team did not disclose why Ray is missing the series, it is apparent that Canada's mandatory vaccination rule is playing a role; likely indicating that the star pitcher is unvaccinated.  Ray will be missing out on a significant return to Toronto after winning the Cy Young as part of the Blue Jays in 2021.

I'm no doctor, but this stuff doesn't perform like a "vaccine."
JAMA study:  Pfizer COVID shot's protection fades in weeks.  A peer-reviewed paper published by the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that immunity against the omicron coronavirus variant fades rapidly after a second and third dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.  The research by Danish scientists published in JAMA Network Open on Friday found antibody responses fell within weeks after second and third Pfizer doses, Forbes reported.

Utah nurses try to hide case of fully vaccinated patient coughing up massive fibrous clot from one of his lungs.  A group of intensive care unit nurses in Utah has tried to cover up the fact that one of their patients who is fully vaccinated against the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is coughing up fibrous clots from one of his lungs.  This was according to Dr. Jane Ruby, who spoke about the incident on the April 25 episode of her show, the "Dr. Jane Ruby Show," on the Stew Peters Network.  Ruby got the information from "Tracy," an individual from her Telegram channel who indicated that she was a nurse in a hospital in Utah.  According to Tracy, one of her colleagues shared with her a photograph of a fibrous-looking clot that was coughed up by a 32-year-old patient in the hospital's ICU.  The patient, an otherwise healthy man, is fully vaccinated.  Ruby did her due diligence as a researcher and vetted Tracy and the information she gave her.  She came to the conclusion that this information is accurate.

Quadruple Vaxed Sheila Jackson Lee Tests Positive for the Coronavirus.  Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus, her office said in a statement on Monday, despite her status as both vaccinated and boosted.  "Statement:  Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee tested positive for COVID.  She is fully vaccinated and has received her boosters," an update posted to Twitter reads.  The statement suggests the congresswoman has been quadruple vaccinated, assuming she received the traditional two-dose series and later received "boosters," per the statement.

North Korea's explosive Covid outbreak:  From 0 to 820,620 cases and 40+ deaths in just 3 days.  North Korea State media KCNA said a total of 42 people had died, with 820,620 cases and at least 324,550 under medical treatment only 3 days after the first Covid case was officially acknowledged.  Leader Kim Jong Un has said the outbreak has caused "great upheaval" in North Korea.  KCNA reported that "all provinces, cities and counties of the country have been totally locked down and working units, production units and residential units closed from each other."

The Editor says...
Raise your hand if you think it is possible for a country to go from ZERO Covid cases to 820,620 cases in only three days.  Yeah, I don't either.

NYC Mayor Eric Adams masks up as city's health department quietly reveals plans to set Covid alert level to 'high'.  New York City's Mayor Eric Adams was spotted donning a face mask Monday — an accessory he is not often wearing during public events — after the city quietly updated its Covid guidance to recommend them in all indoor public places.  The mayor donned the grey covering while he shook hands with students at the Economic Development Summit in City College of New York's Great Hall.  He removed it when he took to the stage to answer questions from the press, before putting the covering back on to leave the room.  Only a few people in the crowd and on the stage also wore masks during the conference.

COVID-19, MIS-C and Kawasaki disease share same immune response.  The emergence of COVID-19 had doctors racing to define and treat the new disease, but they soon discovered it was not the only novel illness caused by SARS-CoV-2.  A subset of children infected by the virus also experienced abdominal pain, headaches, rashes and vomiting.  This new set of symptoms was labeled multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) and had many of its pediatric patients requiring intensive care.  As MIS-C rates rose, physicians began to note its similarities to a pre-pandemic illness, Kawasaki disease (KD), which has puzzled pediatricians for more than 50 years.  MIS-C and KD share many symptoms, including fever, rash and bloodshot eyes, though KD can also lead to coronary artery aneurysms and heart attack.  Unlike MIS-C, which is associated with a specific virus, KD may be triggered by a variety of infectious and environmental stimuli.

Fauci Laughably Says if Trump Is Re-Elected, He Won't Serve Again.  White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said on CNN Sunday [5/15/2022] that he would not serve in that capacity should Donald Trump regain the White House in 2024.  Note to Dr. Fauci:  Trump would not ask you to serve and would, in fact, probably kick you to the curb his first minute back in office.

Anthony Fauci Says He'll Resign if Donald Trump Returns to Power.  A Donald Trump return to the White House will see Dr. Anthony Fauci heading for the exit, America's top infectious disease expert promised Sunday [5/15/2022].  The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director used an interview on CNN to reveal he does not want to serve under the former president if he is re-elected in 2024 and would likely resign.

Air Force Academy cadets may not graduate because they're unvaccinated.  They refused the vaccine.  Now four cadets at the Air Force Academy may not graduate as a result — and could be forced to pay back hefty tuition fees.  So far it's the only military academy imposing such harsh penalties on its cadets, Air Force officials said.  The cadets at the Colorado Springs academy also could be prevented from being commissioned as military officers this month because they refused the COVID-19 vaccine.  They may also have to pay back thousands of dollars in tuition costs, the Air Force said.  The Army and Navy said that as of now, no seniors will be blocked from graduating at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., or the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, due to vaccine refusals.

Overview Video of mRNA Vaccine Technology.  This 25 minutes video explains in detail the mechanisms of action for mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, as well as highlighting some of the known risks.  If you wish to have a better understanding of the technology or wish for a refresher on the tech, as well as to learn a bit of cellular and molecular biology[,] this is a great primer.

Biden administration warns of new COVID wave, just in time for fall midterm elections.  [T]he Biden Regime is telling us to brace ourselves for a new wave of COVID coming this fall, just in time for the midterm elections.  When something proves successful, you'd be a fool not to try it again, right?  COVID fears led to mail-in balloting, which in turn allowed Biden to be "elected" president of the United States.  Therefore, Democrats and their sycophants believe that reintroducing those fears can keep Congressional Democrats in power — against all odds.  Perhaps lightning can strike twice.  Without offering up any information to support the claim, a senior Biden administration official recently projected that up to 100 million Americans — nearly 1/3 of the population — could get infected with COVID-19 COVID-20 COVID-21 COVID-22 this fall and early winter if Congress doesn't provide more funding for vaccines and other treatments.  And if they are allowed to vote in person, of course.  Given the staggeringly high rate of new cases among the fully vaccinated, that might not be too far-fetched.

Thoughts on Our Faucian Bargain.  Open the Books has publicized outrageous taxpayer-funded pensions, lavish government subsidies to super-rich Ivy league colleges, and eye-popping public employee salaries.  Every revelation is wrenched from the clenched fists of government bureaucracies whose byword, like that of the mafia, is "omertà," silence.  Perhaps their most damaging report was released just last week.  Open the Books teamed up with Judicial Watch, another invaluable public-spirited watchdog, to mount a lawsuit against the National Institutes of Health in order to prise loose information about the millions and millions of dollars the organization has received from third-parties (that would be Big Pharma) and distributed to its scientists and administrators.  The last time the NIH was forced to disgorge such information was back in 2005 in response to a Freedom of Information demand filed by the Associated Press.  The NIH, of course, is the preferred playground of Anthony Fauci, publicity hound and COVID scold par excellence.  Fauci, as has been noted many times at American Greatness, is the highest paid federal employee.  In 2021, his taxpayer-funded salary alone was $456,028.

Neil Oliver, W.H.O Assembles Pandemic Treaty to Control Global Human Parasites.  Comrade dissidents, in his weekly monologue Neil Oliver draws attention to the World Health Organization (WHO) effort to assemble the Global Pandemic Response Treaty, a collective pact with the industrious mission to control the threat of human parasites.  As Oliver notes, the objective of the W.H.O. mission is to coordinate a whole-of-planet approach, by giving instructions to all governmental signatories for how to best manage the problematic behavior of free-range citizens.  People are the dangerous carbon they seek to mitigate.  [Video clip]

Fauci Gets the Giggles When Asked Why White House is Spreading Disinformation About COVID Vaccine Availability.  Fake News CNN's Jake Tapper asks White House Chief Medical Advisor Anthony Fauci why the White House is sending out false information, aka 'disinformation', about when the COVID vaccines were available.  Fauci giggles, laughs and says "I have no idea."  [Video clip]

Pfizer COVID Vaccine Safety Varies from Lot to Lot.  By all accounts, Lauren Morgan Tweedale had a bubbly personality.  She was outgoing, loved to sing karaoke, and to go to the gym with her buddies.  Forty-seven years old, Tweedale was also trim and healthy.  So it was a huge shock to her family and friends when last year, on the morning of April 6th, 2021, she was found unresponsive in her bed.  The doctors told the family that Tweedale died of a sudden cardiac event.  However, just eight days before she died, Tweedale had gotten her first dose of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine against COVID-19.  "Like a well-oiled machine," she posted privately on Facebook, tagging the Oregon Convention Center in Portland.  "Nicely done, team!" The Epoch Times also verified her vaccination card.

Radio host injured by COVID jab says media 'don't want to hear' about adverse events.  A BBC radio host who suffered from painful adverse events after taking AstraZeneca's COVID shot has spoken out against media silence on injuries arising from the jabs.  BBC Kent Radio host Jules Serkin blasted mainstream media outlets in an interview with GB News Monday night, arguing that either the "media have been told to be quiet" on the topic of "vaccine" injuries or they "don't want to hear another side."

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Health Journalist Revealed the Real Purpose of Masks in 2018: Fear.  Pulitzer Prize and Peabody Award winning journalist Laurie Garrett gave a refreshingly honest and clear-eyed assessment of the usefulness of masks in fighting coronavirus pandemics.  Unfortunately, her assessment, given as the Keynote Address at the National Academy of Medicine in December 2018, was given prior to the Covid-19 outbreak.  Garrett, a Council of Foreign Relations member, spilled the beans in a presentation called "From the 1918 Influenza Pandemic to 2009 H1N1 Pandemic to Now:  Is the World Ready to Respond to the Next Outbreak?"  After her presentation, which periodically cast doubt on the historical utility of general public masking around the world, she fielded a question from a member of the audience on such measures.  This was her candid response.  [Video clip]

People Who Pushed Idea of Universal Vaccination Are 'Guilty of Crimes Against Humanity': Former Pfizer VP.  Former Pfizer VP Michael Yeadon maintains that since the infection fatality ratio of COVID-19 has not been high, the vaccines should not have been mandated.  Moreover, he heavily blasted the corporate media mantras that designate these as safe, effective, and necessary to end the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic.  Yeadon is a big pharma veteran with 32 years in the industry.  He worked as the head of allergy and respiratory research at Pfizer from 1995 to 2011 and is the former founder and CEO of Ziarco, a biotech company acquired by Novartis.  Furthermore, he has a doctorate in respiratory pharmacology and holds a Double First Class Honors degree in biochemistry and toxicology.  A shocking 1,223 deaths and 42,086 adverse events were reported to Pfizer from the first day of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine rollout on Dec. 1, 2020, to Feb. 28, 2021.

Dr. Robert Malone:  Resisting Covid Tyranny and the WEF's Great Reset.  In an in-depth interview with The New American, Dr. Robert Malone shared details of his intellectual journey from questioning the safety and efficacy of Covid vaccines to recognizing the intense efforts of the globalist forces aimed at establishing a totalitarian regime that would supersede national political structures.  Dr. Malone said that the driving force behind the effort is the World Economic Forum (WEF), whose members dominate supranational organizations, national governments and political parties, corporations, the media, and academia.  The goal of the policies that were implemented as a part of the Covid pandemic response was to accelerate the Great Reset preached by the forum's founder and chairman, Klaus Schwab.  Based on total control over information, the economy, and finances, and on the ideas of transhumanism and population control, the Great Reset becomes possible because of mass formation psychosis.  Malone argued that since this phenomenon captures both the populace and the leaders, it is paramount to wake people up, and he offered solutions for doing so.  [Video clip]

White House falsely claims 'no vaccine' was available when Biden took office.  The official White House Twitter account posted false COVID-19 information Thursday [5/12/2022], wrongly claiming there was "no vaccine available" when President Biden took office in January 2021.  "When President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available," the verified account tweeted to its 7 million followers Thursday.  "In the last 15 months, the economy has created 8.3 [million] jobs and the unemployment rate stands at 3.6% — the fastest decline in unemployment to start a President's term ever recorded," the tweet concluded.  But eagle-eyed critics were quick to point out that the 79-year-old Biden actually received his first dose of the vaccine on December 2020 — a month before he moved in at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Infant Drowns in Three Inches of Bathwater As Mom Faints One Day After AstraZeneca Jab.  A baby in the UK drowned in a bathtub after her mom, who'd received AstraZeneca's Covid-19 vaccine a day earlier, fainted during the bath routine.  The incident occurred last March as the mom, lawyer Louise Atkinson, blacked out while giving 9-month-old Eleanor a bath at their home in Dorset.  Atkinson's husband James reportedly arrived home to find the bathroom door was blocked by his fainted wife's body, then entered the lavatory to find Eleanor blue and face down in about three inches of water.

CDC Admits It Can't Back Claim That Vaccines Don't Cause Variants.  The CDC's website calls it a myth that the vaccines cause variants. [...] The Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), a nonprofit, asked the CDC in Freedom of Information Act requests for documentation supporting the claim.  In one request, the group asked for "All documents sufficient to support that COVID-19 vaccines do not create or cause variants of the virus that causes COVID-19."  Another requested "All documents sufficient to support that the immunity conferred by COVID-19 vaccines does not contribute to virus evolution and the emergence of variants."  The CDC has now responded to both requests, saying a search "found no records responsive" to them.

Pew Survey Finds COVID Has Virtually Disappeared as a Major Concern For Americans.  Illustrating how the issue has largely disappeared, a new poll of Americans finds COVID to be the least of their concerns out of a list of 12 different subjects.  The survey was conducted by Pew Research between April 25 [and] May 1.  Just 19 percent of respondents said COVID was still a "very big problem," while 31 percent said it was a "small problem" and a further 12 percent said it was "not a problem at all."  In comparison, 70 percent of Americans said inflation was a "very big problem," with a further 23 percent describing it as a "moderately big problem."  Ten other issues, including violent crime, illegal immigration and the condition of infrastructure, all rank above COVID-19 in terms of being more of a concern.

Why can't these loathsome elites just give up the masked charade?  On a visit to DC this week I discovered something everybody might know.  Which is that dwellers in the swamp still wear masks.  Unlike most New Yorkers, the DC crowd still like to cover their faces as they walk down the streets.  If you get into a lift unmasked they still glare at you like New Yorkers did a couple of years ago. [...] No city wants to get going as much as this one.  But we're not back yet.  The city's office districts are still much quieter than they should be.  Too many companies are still worried about ordering their staff back to the office.  And too many young employees are still getting away with pretending that they are worried about returning to work because of the virus, when in fact it is purely about lifestyle.  One of the greatest con tricks ever.  And so there are still vast uninhabited swathes of office-space in the city.  With all the knock-on effects to local businesses that this has.  Not a good sign of things returning to normal.

Mainstream media focus on "hero passenger" Darren Harrison landing plane in Florida, while completely whitewashing the suddenly incapacitated pilot.  Everyone loves feel-good stories with a happy endings, especially in these times of universal deceit and subterfuge.  Now mainstream media are using said feel-good stories to coordinate and deflect attention from a very disturbing and well-established trend in the aviation industry.  Captain Bob Snow was an American Airlines pilot with over 30 years experience.  He was landing an Airbus A321 with 200 passengers at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport via Denver on April 9.  Just six minutes after touching down and taxiing the aircraft to Gate 6, Captain Snow suffered a sudden cardiac arrest.  In what can only be called a miraculous coincidence, the plane left Denver exactly six minutes earlier than it was supposed to leave.  Had the flight departed right on time, this story would have been international news.  It's also hard to look past the numerical anomaly herein — left Denver 6 minutes early, landed at Gate 6, cardiac arrest 6 minutes later.  Captain Snow posted a video that originally appeared on Rumble on April 19.  He said American Airlines forced all pilots to receive mRNA injections or be fired.  He received his on November 9.

Excess mortality by age
Feds and media [are] ignoring doubling of mortality among young and middle-aged adults in latest dataSomething is killing off large numbers of 25-to-54-year-olds in the United States, and the powers that be in government and the media are pretending it is not happening.  There is no visible effort to study the alarming statistics gathered by actuaries for the life insurance industry, which keeps track of deaths because they directly impact their bottom line through calins from the insured.  Aaron Kheriaty, MD spotted the alarming table [left] on page 23 of a report from the Society of Actuaries Research Institute.


White House Tells Such a Despicable Blatant Lie Even CNN and WaPo Bust Them.  How deep are the White House lies?  We see Joe Biden making up lies virtually every day.  But perhaps some of the most offensive lies that he and his administration tell are the ones that defy reality right in front of our faces.  Such as when White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told us that Kamala Harris was socially distancing from people during Ketanji Brown Jackson's ceremony (despite the pictures showing Harris hugging her), that there was no internal ceremony (despite pictures showing there was one), and that Harris wore a mask while inside despite White House posting a video that showed she wasn't).  They simply didn't care about telling such blatant lies because they are largely not held accountable for it.  I thought the Ketanji Brown Jackson lies were bad, defying what we could see right in front of our faces.  But the vaccine lie that the White House told just may beat those for audacity.

Fauci, Biden, Psaki Sued in Major Big Tech Collusion Lawsuit!  Things continue to get worse for the apparatchiks of the ruling regime:  now, in addition to losing the abortion battle and much of the mask battle in the courts at the same time that Elon Musk is taking a hammer to the censorship regime by buying Twitter, Fauci and Biden just got rocked by a massive lawsuit.  That lawsuit, filed last Thursday by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, names Biden, Psaki, Dr. Fauci, and Nina Jankowicz (the Disinformation Board woman) as defendants and accuses them of colluding with Big Tech to crush certain messages on platforms like Facebook and YouTube under the guise of fighting "misinformation".

Just in time for the mid-term elections:
AP Interview:  US 'vulnerable' to COVID without new shots.  White House COVID-19 coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha issued a dire warning Thursday [5/12/2022] that the U.S. will be increasingly vulnerable to the coronavirus this fall and winter if Congress doesn't swiftly approve new funding for more vaccines and treatments.  In an Associated Press interview, Jha said Americans' immune protection from the virus is waning, the virus is adapting to be more contagious and booster doses for most people will be necessary — with the potential for enhanced protection from a new generation of shots.

Dr. Fauci Melts Down at Congressional Hearing: 'I'm Wondering Why You're Asking Me About Lockdowns'.  Dr. Anthony Fauci was among the public health officials called before Congress to testify on the Fiscal Year 2003 budget request for the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  When Fauci started getting heat for his disastrous track record, he fired back at his critics.  [Video clip]

Fauci To Be Placed Under Investigation After His Emails Are Released.  Back in March of this year, Anthony Fauci backtracked on his own hints that he would retire soon, asserting that the COVID pandemic is not yet over.  A day after he said 'I can't stay in this job forever,' Fauci seemed determined to stick around when asked on ABC's This Week if he was thinking of leaving.  He replied: 'I'm not so sure, George,' the director of the National Health Institute told anchor George Stephonaupolous.  'I want to make sure we're really out of this before I really seriously consider doing anything different.  We're still in this.'

Democrat Whose Offices Are Still Closed Due to COVID-19 Hosts Maskless Fundraising Soirée.  A Democratic congressman whose district offices remain closed to the public hosted a maskless fundraising party on Monday at his mansion in suburban Maryland.  President Joe Biden and Sen. Ben Cardin (D., Md.) attended the evening soirée at the residence of Rep. David Trone (D., Md.), the multimillionaire owner of Total Wine who is one of the wealthiest members of Congress.  Photos from the event show guests mingling without masks and posing for selfies with the president.  Social distancing guidelines were ignored.  The Democratic fundraiser took place less than two weeks after the White House Correspondents' Dinner, another mask-free gathering of elites that resulted in a number of journalists and Biden administration officials testing positive for COVID-19.

WHO director calls China's zero-COVID policy 'unsustainable' and gets censored for it.  There was a time in the early days of the pandemic when World Health Organization director Tedros Ghebreyeseus seemed to be China's best friend and chief defender.  And China in turn defended the WHO. Only belatedly did the WHO acknowledge China hadn't been as forthcoming as they had initially claimed.  But gradually the situation seems to have changed.  Last summer Tedros agreed his organization had ruled out the lab leak theory too quickly.  "I have worked in the lab, and lab accidents happen," he said as part of an effort to pressure China to provide more information about the origin of the virus.

Clueless, pharma-infested FDA now says independent media is "leading cause of death in US".  The leading cause of death in the United States today is not heart disease but rather "independent media," according to U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) chief Dr. Robert Cardiff.  A Joe Biden appointee, Califf claimed during a recent appearance on CNN that independent media outlets must be purged from existence immediately if there is to be any hope of ending the scourge of death throughout the country.  Only corporate-controlled, government-approved fake news outlets like CNN should be allowed to exist and spread information online, Califf maintains.  Allowing free speech, he says, will result in "deadly misinformation" spreading and influencing people's health decisions.

When it comes to COVID, illegals outrank the military.  Regardless where one stands on the issue of mandates, the double standard when it comes to the new vaccine policy announced for migrants is hard to accept.  In the midst of firing members of the military for not getting jabbed, the Biden administration has declared the pandemic over for purposes of turning migrants away from the Southern Border (i.e., use of Title 42) and stated it will no longer be implementing COVID mitigation measures such as testing and vaccines for migrants entering the country.  The idea that those not legally in the country are entitled to more liberty and autonomy than American citizens may strike many as puzzling.

NIH director confirms agency hid early COVID genes at request of Chinese scientists.  National Institutes of Health acting director Lawrence Tabak confirmed to lawmakers Wednesday that US health officials concealed early genomic sequences of COVID-19 at the request of Chinese scientists — but insisted the data remains on file.  Tabak told a House Appropriations subcommittee that the NIH "eliminated from public view" the data from the pandemic epicenter in Wuhan, China, before adding that researchers can still access it via an archaic "tape drive."  Vanity Fair recently reported that the information was hidden in response to a request from Chinese scientists, despite potentially resolving whether the virus leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology or passed naturally from animals to humans.  Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.) asked Tabek to explain why US officials would comply with such a request.

Scandals in the NIH.  Two stories about the National Institutes of Health hit the news today.  The first arose from testimony by acting NIH director Lawrence Tabak before a House Appropriations subcommittee.  Tabak admitted that NIH hid genetic information about the covid-19 virus that could have shed light on its origin, at the behest of the Chinese Communists:  [Quote (from the article immediately above) omitted for brevity.]  I do not understand why a federal agency would be more loyal to the Chinese government than to the American people.  But that is what we have come to in today's administrative state. [...] So the information exists, you just can't see it.  There is more at the link about bureaucrats' hostility toward data that suggested the virus came from a Wuhan laboratory leak.

Democrats Silent as Republicans Rip Into Secret Royalty Checks to Fauci, Hundreds of NIH Scientists.  Top Democratic leaders with oversight of the National Institutes for Health (NIH) are keeping quiet about the $350 million in secret payments to agency leaders like Dr. Anthony Fauci and hundreds of its scientists.  The Epoch Times received no responses from multiple requests to Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) for comment on a report by a non-profit government watchdog estimating that Fauci, former NIH director Francis Collins, and hundreds of NIH scientists got as much as $350 million in undisclosed royalty payments from pharmaceutical and other private firms between 2010 and 2020.  The revelations from Open the Books, which were first reported on May 9 by The Epoch Times, are based on thousands of pages of documents the group obtained from NIH in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit in federal court.  The suit was filed by Judicial Watch on behalf of Open the Books.

'Fully vaxxed' Bill Gates infected with COVID after touting jabs as key to 'getting rid' of virus.  Microsoft founder and pro-abortion billionaire Bill Gates has tested positive for COVID-19 despite having received at least three doses of mRNA shots.  "I've tested positive for COVID.  I'm experiencing mild symptoms and am following the experts' advice by isolating until I'm healthy again," Gates tweeted Tuesday.  "I'm fortunate to be vaccinated and boosted and have access to testing and great medical care," he added.  At 66, Gates is eligible for two mRNA boosters, although it's unclear if he's received both.

Suddenly Bill Gates confirms what we've been saying all along:  Covid is "kind of like the flu" with a "low fatality rate".  Billionaire eugenicist Bill Gates is finally admitting that he was dead wrong about the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).  The Microsoft co-founder says that he and other self-proclaimed "authorities" on the matter overreacted to the virus, which is not nearly as much of a threat as he originally claimed.  "It wasn't until early February, when I was in a meeting, that experts of the foundation said, 'there's no way' that Covid-19 could have been contained," Gates recently stated.  "At that point, we didn't really understand the fatality rate.  We didn't understand that it's a fairly low fatality rate, and that it's a disease mainly of the elderly, kind of like the flu, although it's a bit different than that."

Why aren't we allowed to question the 2020 election?  [Scroll down]  The Biden Regime already issued a dire warning for the fall, with this key line that shows this is all smoke and mirrors:  ["]In forecasting 100 million potential infections during a cold-weather wave later this year and early next, the official did not present new data or make a formal projection.["] [...] Within days of the chaos of mail-in voting, ballot harvesting, and dropbox stuffing, we were told it was in fact the "most secure in history."  One of the 'debunking' stories had a great quote that 'extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.'  If the 2020 election was the "most secure in history," then that extraordinary claim needs some extraordinary proof.

Acting NIH Director Admits Appearance of Conflict of Interest in Secret Royalty Payments to Fauci, Scientists.  Undisclosed royalty payments estimated at $350 million from pharmaceutical and other firms to Dr. Anthony Fauci and hundreds of National Institutes for Health (NIH) scientists do present "an appearance of a conflict of interest," according to the agency's acting director.  Dr. Lawrence Tabak, who took over as NIH Director following the December 2021 resignation of the agency's long-time leader, Dr. Francis Collins, told a House Appropriations Committee subcommittee that federal law allows the royalty payments but he conceded they don't look ethical.  Rep. John Moolenaar (R-Mich.) told Tabak that "right now, I think the NIH has a credibility problem and this only feeds into this, and I'm only just learning about this.  People in my district say 'well, so-and-so has a financial interest, or they don't like Ivermectin because they aren't benefitting from that royalty ... You may have very sound scientific reasons for recommending a medicine or not, but the idea that people get a financial benefit from certain research that's been done and grants that were awarded, that is to me the height of the appearance of a conflict of interest."

Coming soon: a defamation suit against Twitter.  In Ireland.  Defamation, per Oxford Languages:  "the action of damaging the good reputation of someone; slander or libel."  In banning me from the platform for supposedly violating "our COVID-19 misinformation rules," a statement it made to multiple news outlets last year, Twitter did not merely severely damage my reputation as a journalist.  It tarred me as a menace to public health.  I am not exaggerating.

Sen. Johnson Opens Probe Into CDC Tracking Americans Through Phone Location Data.  Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) is investigating the CDC for tracking million of American through phone location data.  "Just because data exists, doesn't mean that the government should be using it to track Americans, I would think that that really raises some very serious constitutional issues," Senator Ron Johnson told John Solomon [...].  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention used phone location data to track millions Americans in 2021.  The CDC monitored curfew zones, churches, schools, neighbor-to-neighbor visits and trips to pharmacies through SafeGraph, a controversial data broker.

7-Year-Old Boy Dies from Heart Attack After Pfizer Injection.  On 16 February 2022, a 7-year-old boy in Seattle Washington died from a heart attack with blood clots in his coronary artery and liver.  He died 13 days after being injected with a Pfizer "vaccine."  He suffered shock and cardiac arrest.  He could not be resuscitated and died in the emergency department, APAR TV reported.  His death was recorded on the US VAERS database.

New Study & Confidential Pfizer Docs. prove COVID "Vaccine Shedding" has been and still is occurring with dangerous consequences.  A new study conducted by scientists at the University of Colorado confirms the vast majority of humanity have had absolutely no choice in the matter of whether they wish to get the Covid-19 injection or not because the vaccinated have been transmitting antibodies generated by the injections through aerosols.  The findings should however come as no surprise, because a confidential Pfizer document had already confirmed exposure to the mRNA injections was perfectly possible by skin-to-skin contact and breathing the same air as someone who had been given the Covid-19 jab.  They also unfortunately add weight to the claims made by Dr Phillipe van Welbergen, who demonstrated that graphene, an alleged undisclosed ingredient of the Covid-19 injections, is being transmitted from the vaccinated to the not-vaccinated and destroying red blood cells and causing dangerous blood clots.

Substack Investigation:  Fauci's Royalties And The $350 Million Royalty Payment Stream HIDDEN By NIH.  Last year, the National Institutes of Health — Anthony Fauci's employer — doled out $30 billion in government grants to roughly 56,000 recipients.  That largess of taxpayer money buys a lot of favor and clout within the scientific, research, and healthcare industries.  However, in our breaking investigation, we found hundreds of millions of dollars in payments also flow the other way.  These are royalty payments from third-party payers (think pharmaceutical companies) back to the NIH and individual NIH scientists.  We estimate that between fiscal years 2010 and 2020, more than $350 million in royalties were paid by third-parties to the agency and NIH scientists — who are credited as co-inventors.  Because those payments enrich the agency and its scientists, each and every royalty payment could be a potential conflict of interest and needs disclosure.

15 fully vaxxed tennis players withdraw from Miami Open due to serious health issues.  Some of the world's top athletes are either collapsing on the field/court or becoming too weak to play their favorite sport.  At the Miami Open, 15 fully-vaccinated players withdrew during the competition, leaving spectators baffled.  Some of the crowd's favorites had to leave the competition early, including Paula Badosa from Spain and Jannik Sinner from Italy.  They retired from their quarterfinal contests on the same day.  Earlier, Rafael Nadal had to leave the court for treatment after experiencing chest pain during his match against Taylor Fritz in the Indian Wells final.  He was able to continue, but was clearly struggling with his breathing as the unheralded Fritz completed an upset and handed Nadal his first loss this season.  All three players succumbed to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine mandate imposed by the Australian Open in 2021.

All-cause death rate 52 times higher among vaccinated children than unvaccinated children.  Data from the Office for National Statistics in the U.K. showed that British children aged 10 to 14 injected with the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine had an all-cause death rate of 238 per 100,000 from January 1 to October 31, 2021.  That was about 52 times higher than the death rate among unvaccinated children from the same age group, which was only 4.58 per 100,000.  Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported last month that 169 children aged one month to 16 years had developed "acute hepatitis of unknown origin."  Most of the children were from the U.K., Europe and Israel.  The U.K. Health Security Agency also updated its data recently, adding 34 more cases to its tally.  Ten of the children required liver transplants.

Tennessee Makes Ivermectin Available Without Prescription.  Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed a bill on Apr. 22, 2022, allowing Ivermectin to be dispensed without a prescription.  The new law states, "a pharmacist, in good faith, may provide Ivermectin to a patient who is eighteen (18) years of age or older pursuant to a valid collaborative pharmacy practice agreement containing a non-patient-specific prescriptive order and standardized procedures developed and executed by one (1) or more authorized prescribers."  Introduced by Sen. Frank Niceley (R-Strawberry Plains) on Jan. 31, Senate Bill 2188 was co-sponsored by Sen. Rusty Crowe (R-Johnson City).  The amended version of the bill signed by Gov. Lee will create a standard procedure for pharmacists to easily dispense Ivermectin to patients while protecting a pharmacist or doctor from being held liable for doing so.

Pfizer documents:  Over 1,200 people died during Pfizer vaccine trials.  Following the release of the Pfizer documents, it's now confirmed that 1,223 people died within the first 28 days after being inoculated with the BioNTech Pfizer vaccine during trials — and it was still approved for use. [...] Far from being 'safe and effective,' Pfizer's documents prove otherwise: the BioNTech Pfizer vaccine is perhaps the most ineffectual, dangerous 'vaccine' ever brought to market.  Besides slaughtering over 1,000 people in under a month, trials also produced hundreds of potentially fatal side effects, created fertility issues, and were only 12-15 percent effective at preventing infection overall and subsequently dropped to less than 1 percent — despite health officials claiming it would be over 90 percent effective.  They were lying.

Evidence The Triple Vaxxed Are Developing AIDS.  It's a common misconception that Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is only caused by the HIV virus.  This simply isn't true.  AIDS has many different causes, and unfortunately it looks like the Covid-19 injections should be added to the list of causes, because official UK Government data suggests the Triple Vaccinated population in England have been developing the condition since the beginning of 2022.

Fiction Disguised as Science to Promote Hatred.  The legacy media has been like pigs at a trough today and yesterday with the publication of an atrocious 'peer-reviewed' 'scientific' article by Dr. David Fisman, Dr. Ashleigh Tuite, and a graduate student.  After all, with raw public health data unable to support the only COVID-19 narrative that has been deemed acceptable, fresh fuel was apparently needed.  Lots of media outlets have been reporting on this study; one of them being CTV News. [...] This kind of messaging will only fuel hatred and segregation and the potential development of harmful policies.  And it is all in the name of bad science.  As a researcher who has published and reviewed many scientific papers, I can tell you that the article by Fisman, et al. is the worst one that I have ever seen.

Call for retraction of paper.  First of all, please refer to this thorough and excellent review of the paper by Byram Bridle, and a list of scientific reasons why the aforementioned paper should never have been published.  This paper indeed went through peer review.  Who were the reviewers? [...] The point of publishing a low level piece of writing like this is to create division.  It is that simple.  There is no scientific merit in this piece (I will demonstrate this) and the message is not science-based:  the message is that the 'unvaccinated' need to be 'vaccinated'.

Heart Inflammation More Prevalent Among Vaccinated Than Unvaccinated:  Study.  Heart inflammation requiring hospital care was more common among people who received COVID-19 vaccines than those who did not, according to a new study of tens of millions of Europeans.  Rates of myocarditis or pericarditis, two types of heart inflammation, are above the levels in an unvaccinated cohort, pegged at 38 per 100,000 after receipt of a second dose of a vaccine built on messenger RNA (mRNA) technology in males aged 16 to 24 — the group studies have shown are most at risk of the post-vaccination condition — researchers with health agencies in Finland, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway found.  "These extra cases among men aged 16 [to] 24 correspond to a 5 times increased risk after Comirnaty and 15 times increased risk after Spikevax compared to unvaccinated," Dr. Rickard Ljung, a professor and physician at the Swedish Medical Products Agency and one of the principal investigators of the study, told The Epoch Times in an email.

What's Killing People If There is No Coronavirus?  Acidosis and Red Blood Cell Transmutation.  Ninety government agencies and laboratories have not provided proof that the bugaboo Coronavirus exists when requested by independent bio-statistician Christine Massey.  Additionally, statistician Genevieve Briand has found that there were no excess deaths (all causes) in 2021 when the death data was adjusted for the bulge of the Baby Boom elderly generation in the overall population.  This runs against the government and media created perception of reality that there is a Coronavirus epidemic.  But when you mention that there is no coronavirus to the average Joe or Jane, they typically say with absolute certainty that they personally know someone in their family or close associates who had died of Coronavirus.  Cognitive dissonance is a social psychological process of doubling down on our beliefs in the face of contradictory evidence or uncertainty.  But anecdotal knowledge is not reliable for medical purposes when we are surrounded by contradictory signals that do not interpret themselves.  Furthermore, there is no research or books that attempt to credibly answer the gnawing question: what is killing people if there is no verifiable Coronavirus?

China's secrecy on COVID's origins won't impact US lifting tariffs, Psaki says.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday that US officials are looking at repealing tariffs on Chinese goods "separately" from any US pressure on China to come clean about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic and whether the virus leaked from a Wuhan lab.  Psaki, responding to a briefing question from The [New York] Post, said a review of Trump administration tariffs is focused on consumer prices, and not on the grim approaching milestone of 1 million US coronavirus deaths.

Vaccine-Injured 22-year-old Diagnosed with PoTS and FND.  Adam Clarke, a 22-year-old from Farnham, United Kingdom, received his first Pfizer Covid injection dose in February 2021. Clark had a serious adverse reaction and is "still suffering 7 months later," he wrote in February on his Go Fund Me page.  Initially, he felt faint and nauseous but over time he developed neurological symptoms "such as tremors, numbness in my arms and legs, vertigo, headaches and nausea."  He also developed chest pains and a rapid heart rate.  He went to accident and emergency ("A&E") several times but was told he was having "a panic attack and that [he] was just anxious."  He then consulted "private" doctors, in other words outside of the NHS. He has consulted a neurologist, a cardiologist, and a functional doctor.  The neurologist diagnosed him with functional neurological disorder ("FND"), and the cardiologist diagnosed him with postural tachycardia syndrome ("PoTS").  But Clarke doesn't feel the consultants have got to the bottom of all his symptoms yet.

Beloved And Fully Vaccinated Gorilla Dies Unexpectedly Due To 'Multiple Organ Failure'.  Gladys Porter Zoo staff are mourning the loss of a Western Lowland Gorilla who died last week.  The zoo issued a release on Wednesday commemorating the life of Martha, a gorilla who died unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 19.  Zookeepers noticed Martha was slow to respond on the morning of April 19.  She was being treated for a urinary tract infection but no signs of a more serious illness were present.  Martha passed away later that night.  A preliminary inspection after her death revealed Martha suffered from multiple issues.

N.J. budget fight brewing after Murphy grabbed power to spend $3 billion in federal COVID relief funds.  New Jersey lawmakers have less than eight weeks to negotiate a state budget, and one glaring question lingers:  Will Gov. Phil Murphy give the state Legislature a say in spending billions in federal coronavirus relief money?  The Garden State received $6.24 billion through the American Rescue Plan signed by President Joe Biden in March 2021.  Most of that money remains unspent, and the Murphy administration has yet to release a detailed plan for more than $3 billion that is still unallocated.

Preventable Deaths and D3.  The inconvenient truth is that even at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, a very simple, inexpensive and effective treatment was available that could have saved the majority of lives lost.  All that the WHO and public health bureaucracy had to do was to recommend and support people taking sufficient Vitamin D3.  This failure to act traces back to the unscientific bias and pro-vaccine obsession of Dr. Anthony Fauci.  And once again the legacy media, while being paid by the US government and the pharmaceutical industry to promote vaccination, acted by censoring, defaming and suppressing the ability of physicians to inform people of scientific truth.  The disease you suffered, the loss of life among your family and friends, could have been greatly reduced by simply getting enough Vitamin D3.  This is another example of what happens when unelected bureaucrats are allowed to control free speech.  Crimes against humanity.

Your next pandemic will be controlled by the WHO.  The WHO is a disaster.  Early treatment (outpatient) was the right way to handle this pandemic and the WHO did absolutely nothing in that area.  Only a completely inept agency wouldn't have had that as one of the pillars of a pandemic response.  Then they wasted a ton of time testing a bunch of drugs that could never have worked on inpatients, costing lives and wasting more time.  Why were they doing clinical trials on drugs where there was no anecdotal evidence of a benefit?  And of course they endorsed the vaccines and continued to this day to NOT endorse early treatment, even such obvious drugs like fluvoxamine with a 12x mortality benefit and a systematic review and meta-analysis (the highest level of evidence-based medicine) published in JAMA.  These people are inept.

Effect of Early Treatment with Ivermectin among Patients with Covid-19.  A total of 3515 patients were randomly assigned to receive ivermectin (679 patients), placebo (679), or another intervention (2157).  Overall, 100 patients (14.7%) in the ivermectin group had a primary-outcome event, as compared with 111 (16.3%) in the placebo group (relative risk, 0.90; 95% Bayesian credible interval, 0.70 to 1.16).  Of the 211 primary-outcome events, 171 (81.0%) were hospital admissions.  Findings were similar to the primary analysis in a modified intention-to-treat analysis that included only patients who received at least one dose of ivermectin or placebo (relative risk, 0.89; 95% Bayesian credible interval, 0.69 to 1.15) and in a per-protocol analysis that included only patients who reported 100% adherence to the assigned regimen (relative risk, 0.94; 95% Bayesian credible interval, 0.67 to 1.35).  There were no significant effects of ivermectin use on secondary outcomes or adverse events.

What 'Moving On' Has Cost Us.  Republicans have traditionally conformed to the "move on" mentality after every election.  After his 1960 loss, Richard Nixon declined to pursue JFK's obvious election chicanery.  Republicans may score points with voters by complaining about democrats' election and governing abuses.  But when they must choose to actually do something about it or move on, they move on.  The same theme is playing out regarding the COVID theater of the absurd that devastated the economy, granted Democrat authorities virtual dictatorial control and cost thousands of citizens their jobs, constitutional protections, and in far too many cases, their lives.  In the mold of Donald Trump, Kentucky's Sen. Rand Paul has vowed to bring the effective ringleader of the COVID scam to justice by promising to investigate Anthony Fauci's questionable handling of the crisis.  Anyone familiar with Paul doesn't doubt that he intends to bring the Senate's investigative powers to bear on Fauci.  Anyone familiar with the Republican party's track record also knows the party will not allow such an investigation to extend to indictments of Fauci and co-conspirators, irrespective of what is uncovered.

Anthony Fauci: 'We Are Still in the Middle of a Pandemic'.  Dr. Anthony Fauci has warned the world is "still in the middle of a pandemic," less than two weeks after stating the U.S. was "certainly ... out of the pandemic phase."  "You said last week that we are out of the 'acute component' of the pandemic phase.  In real terms, what does that mean for Americans?" Foreign Policy's Ravi Agrawal asked, prompting Fauci to say that "we are still in the middle of a pandemic."

FDA restricts J&J's COVID-19 vaccine due to blood clot risk.  U.S. regulators on Thursday [5/5/2022] strictly limited who can receive Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine due to the ongoing risk of rare but serious blood clots.  The Food and Drug Administration said the shot should only be given to adults who cannot receive a different vaccine or specifically request J&J's vaccine.  U.S. authorities for months have recommended that Americans starting their COVID-19 vaccinations use the Pfizer or Moderna shots instead.  FDA officials said in a statement that they decided to restrict J&J's vaccine after taking another look at data on the risk of life-threatening blood clots within two weeks of vaccination.

Malone And McCullough Speak Out On Pfizer, CDC.  [Tweets]  Could this be another issue the Zhou administration is trying to hide with their bogus abortion brouhaha?

What Do We Know About COVID So Far?  With all the thousands of studies bombarding the medical community, it's helpful to set our microscope aside and look at the bigger picture.  It's virtually certain that the virus was engineered in Wuhan with financial and technical assistance directed by that highly competent bureaucrat, Anthony Fauci.  But that doesn't tell us what we should expect as the virus moves through society.  For that, we must look at the science.  And I don't mean "I am science" Fauci.  I mean real scientific data, something with which Fauci has little acquaintance.  Perhaps we should start with that great scientist, Oprah Winfrey, who recently opined that ending the mask mandate on airliners was "premature."

Leftists: Ivermectin Is For Horses... But If You Want An Abortion, Talk To Your Veterinarian.  Remember that time when the left and their media scolded folks like Joe Rogan and Donald Trump for suggesting that the drug ivermectin wasn't only for deworming animals but was effective in treating COVID? And remember that they launched those attacks despite the fact that a Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to ivermectin developers for its remarkable effects on humans? [...] Thanks to the utter hysteria of leftists regarding the apparent upcoming demise of Roe V Wade as first reported by Politico, those same folks are now recommending that women consider accessing the drug Misoprostol to induce abortions, a drug which is used for treating horses suffering from internal ulcers, but which can also be used to kickstart the destruction of an early-stage pregnancy.

Unfollow the science.  Each time there has been either an imposition or a renewal of COVID-19 mitigation measures, we are offered the same reflexive justification for these decisions.  We are told we must "follow the science."  This ubiquitous refrain has become the latest iteration of that most convenient of debate surrogates: the unassailable maxim.  Merely invoking it places one firmly on the side of all sensible people and against the "anti-science" hordes.  At least, that's what we tell ourselves.  The truth is, science is a counselor, not a leader.  Science is simply information.  One cannot "follow the science" any more than one can "follow the library."  If one proposes a policy, science can be helpful in implementing it effectively.  But one must first propose the policy.

Anthony Fauci, Who Is Not A Legal Expert, Criticizes Judge For Lacking Medical Expertise.  Since a federal judge struck down the federal mask mandate, commentators have parsed the decision from both left and right, claiming the ruling was legally suspect.  While their legal arguments are wrong, at least they're not as wrong as Anthony Fauci's response before (where else?) the TV cameras.  On April 18, Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle ruled that the Centers for Disease Control mask mandate for public transportation exceeded the agency's delegated powers and violated the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), the law that governs rule-making by federal agencies.  Mizelle found the mask mandate was not within the regulatory powers Congress granted to federal health authorities.

CDC report admits 74.2 million people in the USA have not had a single dose of a Covid-19 Vaccine, & another 157 million have refused a 2nd or 3rd dose.  President Joe Biden has lied to the American people and is still lying to the American people.  In July 2021, Biden falsely stated that "You're not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations," and "If you're vaccinated, you're not going to be hospitalized, you're not going to be in the ICU unit, and you're not going to die."  Then in December 2021, Biden falsely claimed "This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated.  The unvaccinated.  Not the vaccinated, the unvaccinated.  That's the problem.  Everybody talks about freedom and not to have a shot or have a test.  Well guess what?  How about patriotism?  How about making sure that you're vaccinated, so you do not spread the disease to anyone else."  There is plenty of evidence out there that proves the above statements made by President Biden are outright lies, but the most hilarious evidence of all must be the recent outbreak that occurred due to journalists and Government leaders attending the 'Gridiron Dinner at the beginning of April 2022.  An annual event in Washington DC.  All guests at the event were required to show proof of vaccination.  A week later at least 72 of the 630 fully vaccinated/boosted guests tested positive for Covid-19.

12,548 Children have suffered a Serious Adverse Event due to the COVID Vaccines in the USA;.  The data shows that even children under the age of 6 months old are suffering adverse reactions to the Covid-19 injections suggesting this is either through being breast-fed by vaccinated mothers, or over-eager doctors/nurses/vaccine administrators vaccinating children who are not legally eligible.  As of 22nd April 2022, two children under 6-months-old have sadly died, as well as another 4 children between the ages of 1 and 5.

White House Correspondents' Dinner COVID outbreak begins.  Attendees of Saturday night's White House Correspondents' Dinner have started testing positive for COVID-19, after the comedic headliner Trevor Noah joked that they were attending 'the nation's most distinguished superspreader event.'  Most notably, ABC News' Jonathan Karl tested positive Monday night, Politico first reported, after being seated next to Kim Kardashian at the dinner and briefly interacting with President Joe Biden.  'He tested positive for COVID Monday night, but tested negative on Saturday afternoon before the White House Correspondents' Dinner by medically-supervised staff,' a person familiar with the matter told Politico.  'He had no symptoms on Saturday.  Jon is currently isolating and participating in contact tracing.'

Blinken tests positive for COVID, latest Biden Cabinet official to contract virus.  Secretary of State Antony Blinken tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, becoming the latest Biden administration Cabinet official to contract the virus.  "Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken tested positive for COVID-19 this afternoon via a PCR test.  The Secretary is fully vaccinated and boosted against the virus and is experiencing only mild symptoms.  He tested negative on Tuesday and again as recently as this morning," State Department spokesman Ned Price said in a statement.

Covid Is the Biggest Lie in The World's History and Prof Michel Chossudovsky proves it.  The biggest lie in World history: there never was a pandemic.  The database is flawed.  The Covid mandates including the "vaccine" are invalid.  Destabilising the social, political and economic structure of 190 sovereign countries cannot constitute a "solution" to combating the virus.  But that was the imposed "solution" which was implemented in several stages from the very outset of the corona crisis in January 2020.  It's the destruction of people's lives.  It is the destabilisation of civil society.  Fake science was supportive of this devastating agenda.  The lies were sustained by a massive media disinformation campaign. 24/7, incessant and repetitive "Covid alerts" in the course of the last two years.  The historic 11 March 2020 lockdown triggered economic and social chaos worldwide.  It was an act of "economic warfare":  a war against humanity.

Fully Vaccinated & Boosted Celebrities and Journalists are Coming Down With Covid After WHCD.  Fully vaccinated and twice boosted celebrities, journalists, and members of the ruling class are coming down with COVID-19 after the White House Correspondents' Dinner.  One notable name not in attendance was Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House's head medical tyrant top medical adviser.  Fauci had originally been scheduled to attend the dinner but decided to pull out due to concern about the virus.  The WHCA required attendees to be fully vaccinated and show proof of a negative COVID-19 test from the day of the event but declined to install UV light air cleaners that experts say could have helped curb the spread of the virus.  The event also did not require masks, according to a report by The Daily Caller.  But even with all of that, the fully vaccinated are coming down with the disease they were vaccinated against.  [Tweet]

Lock Him Up: How Fauci facilitated treason between the U.S. and Communist China.  New documents obtained by The National Pulse show that Tony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) greased the wheels for a treasonous relationship between the United States and Communist China as it pertains to bioweapons research and development.  We now know that Galveston National Laboratory (GNL), a Fauci project, forged an agreement with the infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), granting the latter the ability to force the former to "destroy and/or return the secret files, materials and equipment without any backups."  GNL has maintained a multi-year collaborative relationship with the WIV, we also now know.  This included hosting exchange programs and training seminars at the WIV's Biosafety Level 4 (BSL-4) facility where some believe the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) was created and released.

The CDC Spied on Americans by Purchasing Location Data for Tens of Millions of Phones.  "I always feel like somebody's watching me," sang Rockwell in his catchy '80s hit.  If you feel the same way, you're probably right.  A Vice Motherboard report published Tuesday claims that the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) bought cell phone data for tens of millions of phones owned by Americans to track compliance with COVID lockdown orders and vaccination efforts.  You know things have jumped the shark when a government organization ostensibly set up to control disease resorts to spying on Americans.

A top California official pushed hard for a $600-million mask deal.  Fraud claims followed.  In the frantic first weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, three companies promised California officials that they could secure millions of protective masks in exchange for $1.6 billion in no-bid government contracts.  Each effort ended badly for the state.  Two years later, lawsuits stemming from the failed contracts provide a glimpse into the dealmaking — including how California Controller Betty Yee, a two-term Democrat with no formal role in the contracting process, worked behind the scenes to help a pair of political operatives land a deal that turned out to be one of the state's most flawed.  The $600-million contract with Blue Flame Medical LLC, a healthcare supplies startup, was later flagged as a case of possible fraud, and the state was forced to claw back its massive upfront payment.

Does the COVID Jab Kill More People Than It Saves?  According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data, more than 1 million excess deaths — that is, deaths in excess of the historical average — have been recorded since the COVID-19 pandemic began two years ago, and this cannot be explained by COVID-19.  Deaths from heart disease, high blood pressure, dementia and many other illnesses rose during that time.  "We've never seen anything like it," Robert Anderson, CDC's head of mortality statistics, told The Washington Post in mid-February 2022.  According to University of Warwick researchers, "the scale of excess non-COVID deaths is large enough for it to be seen as its own pandemic."  A number of explanations have been offered, including the fact that lockdowns and other COVID restrictions discouraged or prevented people from seeking care.  But another, less discussed factor may also be at play.

CDC Announces Long Term Extension for Biden Transporation Mask Mandate, No Expiration Date.  Previously a federal judge overturned the federal mask mandate for transportation, thereby allowing travelers to make their own choices.  The DOJ has appealed that decision after the CDC said it wanted the mask mandate to remain in place.  The status of that litigation is unknown.  Today [5/3/2022], the CDC has announced a semi-permanent extension of the federal transportation mask mandate with no expiration date noted.  That means all travelers on airplanes, trains, busses and ridesharing will be required to wear facemasks again, including inside the terminals and operational hubs of those transportation nodes, pending the outcome of the DOJ appeal to the federal court.

MSNBC analyst claims Democrats are saviors of the American people.  [Scroll down]  The only "story" the Democrats tell is a fictional one.  It is disinformation, their specialty.  They stole our liberty, bodily autonomy, health, and life in many cases, via their lockdowns and mandates.  They stole our livelihoods — and hindered our pursuit of happiness by denying us the ability to visit family members, travel freely, and attend weddings and funerals.  They stole our breath, money and assets, votes, confidence in our institutions/media/elected and unelected officials, and our safety, security, and sanity.

Follow the evidence, not the "science".  A frequently heard piece of advice over the past few years is "follow the science." [...] During the COVID lockdowns, government authorities such as Anthony Fauci stole our freedoms from us on the basis of "science," but with virtually no solid evidence.  He and his minions didn't even bother to look for evidence.  Shooting from the hip, they based their various mandates on simplistic, ill-founded assumptions that we now know were totally false.  They continued to enforce those mandates for more than two years, long after it was clear they were useless and doing immeasurable harm.  They refused to entertain any disagreement.  To admit they had been mistaken all along was out of the question.  Masks are a prime example of how wrong simplistic thinking can be.  It is easy to believe that masks can reduce the transmission of an airborne disease.  However, regarding COVID, abundant evidence proves that they do not.  Nor is there any real evidence that "social distancing" or wiping down surfaces reduces the number of cases.  Anthony Fauci claims that he and science are synonymous.  Can he claim that he and evidence are synonymous?

Between Natural and Vaccine Antibodies, When is Enough Enough?  Does COVID have an end, as in a final chapter or act?  Or will it be like a movie theme that keeps spitting out sequels, each one worse than the last one, and none even close to the first movie that started the franchise?  Think of Star Wars or Fast and Furious.  COVID sequels are the endless variants, starting with Greek letters, now with simply a soup of letters and numbers denoting the current strain of interest.  As viruses mutate, they generally become more contagious but less lethal, as much of the population by this time has gained natural immunity from previous infection.  This also serves to prolong the life course of the virus that would rather spread far and wide as opposed to killing its host, stopping spread.  COVID cases numbers are up, but what does that really mean?  We see endless tweets from politicians testing positive, almost all of them fully vaccinated and boosted, feeling fine, expressing thanks for the vaccines, using almost identical verbiage in their tweets.

Many Broadway theaters will stop requiring vaccination proof.  Broadway theaters are ending the policy of requiring customers to show proof of vaccination.  The Broadway League says in a statement that beginning Sunday, the owners and operators of all 41 Broadway theaters are extending the mask requirement at least through the end of May but many will no longer check for vaccination status.  The announcement doesn't specify which theaters are ending the practice.

The CDC paid $420,000 to track tens of millions of cell phones and see who went to schools and churches in the pandemic.  The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention paid for location data harvested from millions of cell phones to track compliance with COVID-19 lockdown measures, according to a new report.  The CDC paid $420,000 for a year of access to the cell phone location data from the data brokerage SafeGraph, according to documents reported by Vice News on Tuesday [5/3/2022].  The data was aggregated, meaning that it was intended to show general trends rather than the movements of specific phones, however the move still set off alarm bells with some privacy advocates.

CDC Tracked Millions of Phones to See If Americans Followed COVID Lockdown Orders.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) bought access to location data harvested from tens of millions of phones in the United States to perform analysis of compliance with curfews, track patterns of people visiting K-12 schools, and specifically monitor the effectiveness of policy in the Navajo Nation, according to CDC documents obtained by Motherboard.  The documents also show that although the CDC used COVID-19 as a reason to buy access to the data more quickly, it intended to use it for more general CDC purposes.

Pfizer/BioNTech Study Found Lipid Nanoparticles Materials Outside Injection Site in Test Animals.  Judicial Watch announced today [5/2/2022] that it received 466 pages of records from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regarding biodistribution studies and related data for the COVID-19 vaccines that show a key component of the vaccines developed by Pfizer/BioNTech, lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), were found outside the injection site, mainly the liver, adrenal glands, spleen and ovaries of test animals, eight to 48 hours after injection.

Masks may have caused more Covid deaths.  A newly published, peer-reviewed study in Cureus looked to see if there was a correlation between mask compliance and COVID-19 outcomes in Europe.  The study was undertaken at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil.  The authors noted that previous trials about mask effectiveness had produced mixed results and those that concluded that masks were associated with a reduction in transmission and cases were conducted out of season. [...] Analysis was undertaken to verify if masking correlated with COVID-19 morbidity and mortality.  The data looked at were between October 2020 and March 2021, in the 35 European countries listed above, during which all the countries went through a peak COVID-19 infection wave.  The average proportion of masking was 60.9% with Eastern Europe being slightly higher than Western Europe.  However, compliance was much more homogeneous in the East than the West.  Importantly, results showed a weak positive correlation for mask compliance versus morbidity (cases) and mortality (deaths).

The Truth Is Coming Out About COVID Deaths.  Early on in the COVID pandemic, people suspected that the deaths attributed to the infection were exaggerated.  There was plenty of evidence for this.  For starters, hospitals were instructed and incentivized to mark any patient who had a positive COVID test and subsequently died within a certain time period as a COVID death.  At the same time, we knew that the PCR test was unreliable, producing inordinate amounts of false positives.  Now, the truth is finally starting to come out and, as suspected, the actual death toll is vastly lower than we were led to believe.  In the video above, Dr. John Campbell reviews recent data released by the U.K. government in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.  They show that the number of deaths during 2020 in England and Wales, where COVID-19 was the sole cause of death, was 9,400.  Of those, 7,851 were aged 65 and older.  The median age of death was 81.5 years.  [Video clip]

Biden's Ministry of Truth will spy on American citizens.  In a disturbing development for freedom of speech, the Biden administration announced that it will collaborate with social media to crack down on any information that is critical of Biden's vaccination policy.  Disinformation, said Tucker Carlson, "seems to be anything the Biden administration does not want the people to know including, for example, how effective the COVID vaccines actually are and what the potential side effects might be from taking them."  You would no longer be allowed to text such information to other people.  Your private conversations would be controlled by Joe Biden and the Democrats.  "The Biden administration considers censorship applicable to private speech," said Carlson.  To add insult to injury, we have a new development that frankly is beyond my comprehension.  The president has created an information czar to spy on American citizens.  Biden is establishing what he calls the Disinformation Governance Board as part of the Department of Homeland Security.

'Deep State' Was Working Against Trump on COVID-19 Response:  Paul Alexander.  According to Paul Alexander, when former President Donald Trump was trying to tackle COVID-19 in 2020, the "swamp" or the "deep state" was working against him, using flawed data to tarnish him, locking down society, and keeping schools closed.  "Can you imagine the president of the United States fighting against the [teachers'] union, fighting against the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)], fighting against his own task force?" Alexander told EpochTV's "Facts Matter" program in an interview that will air on May 3.  "They're working against him.  So you need to be there to understand when he said 'the swamp' — and he talked about deep state — it is real.  I dealt with them.  It is the bureaucracy.  The entrenched bureaucracy is real."  From late March till early September 2020, Alexander served as scientific adviser to Michael Caputo, then-assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Deborah Birx makes astonishing admission of anti-Trump pact.  Deborah Birx, in an interview with ABC News about her new book, "Silent Invasion:  The Untold Story of the Trump Administration, COVID-19, and Preventing the Next Pandemic Before It's Too Late,' said she had a pact with medical bureaucrats — Anthony Fauci, Robert Redfield, Stephen Hahn and perhaps others — that all would resign if even one were removed by then-President Donald Trump.  This is an astonishing admission.  It's essentially an acknowledgement that medical bureaucrats, unelected and unaccountable to the people as they were and are, serving at the pleasure of the White House executive as they did, tried to strong-arm the president of the United States into obeying and abiding their dictates to the point of secretly arranging to walk if they didn't get their way — if Trump decided to send one packing.

That sounds like an opportunity to clean house quickly:  Let them all quit!

Fauci Went Maskless at Correspondents' Dinner Pre-Party and That's Only the Third-Worst Part of It.  After keeping as many Americans as possible cowering behind slave masks throughout the Plandemic, Anthony Fauci attended yesterday's White House Correspondents' Dinner pre-party without a mask.  The crowded room would have been called a super-spreader event if there were Republicans there, but since it was mostly leftist politicians and corporate media folks, they didn't even pretend to social distance.  Today, Pandemic Panic Theater has diminished so it's reasonable to expect such displays.  In fact, we would be lambasting them if the progressive glamour crowd had been wearing slave masks at all now that they've been essentially debunked as a means of stopping anything other than freedom.  That's why this is only the third-worst example of hypocrisy on display surrounding Fauci.  The two biggest despicable actions are tossups as to which is worse.

Pfizer Says Its COVID-19 Pill Paxlovid Fails to Prevent Symptomatic Infection of Household Members.  Pfizer announced Friday that a recent large, late-stage trial found that its COVID-19 antiviral pill, Paxlovid, failed at preventing symptomatic infection of people living with a person who has the disease.  The trial enrolled 2,957 participants aged 18 and older who live in the same household as another person who has COVID-19 with symptoms.  They were given either Paxlovid or a placebo twice daily for five or 10 days.  Researchers reported that those who took Paxlovid for 5 days were 32 percent less likely to become infected compared to the placebo group.  People who took Paxlovid for 10 days were 37 percent less likely to get infected.  The results were not statistically significant, however, which means it could possibly be due to chance.  "These results ... were not statistically significant and, as such, the primary endpoint of reducing the risk of confirmed and symptomatic COVID-19 infection in adults who had been exposed to the virus through a household contact was not met," the company said in a release.

'It was all set up ahead of time': COVID-positive nursing home residents were given deadly euthanasia cocktails.  A shocking number of elderly citizens died in the first wave of COVID, and not always from the virus but from severe malnutrition and dehydration, and by protocols that used euthanasia drugs and "end-of -life pathways" as a first-line of treatment for any symptoms, according to a recent analysis published in the C2C Journal.  Of all countries in the west, Canada was the deadliest place to be an at-risk long-term care home resident.  "At the end of May 2020, Canada was reporting that 81 percent of the country's Covid-19 deaths took place in LTCFs [long-term care facilities]," writes Anna Farrow, executive director of the English-Speaking Catholic Council in the province of Quebec.  "This compared to an average of 38 percent in the other 37 OECD countries.  That proportion has fallen, but a December 2021 report by the Canadian Institute for Health Information noted that LTCFs still accounted for 43 percent of Covid-19 deaths."

Studies prove that most politicians and experts handled COVID terribly.  During the 2020 election, multiple public health "experts" claimed President Trump had "blood on his hands" and was responsible for "preventable" loss of life.  They expressed confidence that things would improve with a Biden administration, "which is likely to bring a science-based approach to containing the virus."  An editorial in the highly regarded and allegedly apolitical New England Journal of Medicine, wrote that "inappropriate government policies" were responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands, labeled the Trump administration as "dangerously incompetent" and directed its readers (without mentioning his name) to vote for Biden who would set things right.  Things didn't work out that way.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has just released data showing that 60,000 more Americans died in 2021 from COVID-19 than in 2020.  The rate of COVID-19 associated deaths in 2021 rose 20% from 2020, despite the benefit of vaccines that only became widely available in 2021, multiple new therapies, more clinical experience resulting in improved treatment protocols, and a nationwide travel mask mandate imposed immediately after Biden's inauguration at the beginning of 2021.

Hepatitis Outbreak in Children May Be Consequence of Covid Lockdowns Weakening Immunity.  Last week, I reported that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Alabama Public Health officials were investigating a mysterious outbreak of hepatitis among young children in Alabama.  Outbreaks had also been reported in Europe and Israel.  The investigators were concerned that the pathogen was an adenovirus known to cause gastrointestinal problems in kids but usually without such severity.  Now one official indicates that the cause may be tied to covid.  Not the pathogens, but the lockdowns.

This Scary Experiment Explains Two Years of COVID Hell.  In case you were wondering why all views contrary to the Official Narrative have been canceled, it's because of the Asch Conformity Experiment.  We have just gone through a nationwide, and actually a worldwide, Asch Conformity Experiment.  As implied, the goal of the experiment was not to get to the truth.  It was to get conformity.  Only conformity is allowed.  Asch showed that people will actually believe things that they know to be false if they think everybody else believes those things.  That is the point of the COVID nightmare experiment we just lived though.  You must believe:
  •   COVID is hugely riskier than it actually was, so any actions are justified.
  •   Vaccines are your only hope, even though the technology has never worked.
  •   Vaccines are safe and effective, although they were tested for only a few months.
  •   The unvaxxed are subhuman murderers, to be shunned and even left to die.
  •   Not wearing a known-to-be-useless mask is a sign of relentless selfishness.
  •   Children, who are at almost no risk, must be vaxxed, or they will kill Granny.
None of these makes sense.  However, no dissentm can be allowed because the Asch Conformity Experiment showed that if one person stands up to the narrative, it is easier for the second one to dissent.  Then another and another stand up, and then control is lost.

Now Biden's vaccinated and boosted Communications Director tests positive for COVID.  White House communications director Kate Bedingfield tested positive for covid on Friday [4/29/2022], she announced, adding that she was not considered a close contact to President Joe Biden.  Bedingfield, who is vaccinated and boosted, said she last saw the president on Wednesday but wore a mask when meeting with him.  'This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19.  I last saw the President Wednesday in a socially-distanced meeting while wearing an N-95 mask, and he is not considered a close contact as defined by the CDC,' she wrote on Twitter.

Awful Details Emerge In Lawsuit Claiming Vax-Status Bullies Led To Suicide Of Chicago Teen.  Coming out of the New York Post is the horrible story of a fifteen-year-old who eventually killed himself after relentless bullying from pro-vax classmates who alleged the deceased was not vaccinated against Covid.  Nate Bronstein, a teenager who attended the $40,000 per year Latin School of Chicago, was found dead this past January.  A lawsuit was filed shortly after his death, and goes into remarkable detail about how often both the parents and now-deceased child attempted to reconcile the bullying over the false rumors of him not being vaccinated against Covid.  Defendants in the suit include the school, some employees of the school, and even a few parents of the alleged bullies.

Young Chicago Student Commited Suicide After Being Bullied About His Vaccination Status.  A 15-year-old boy who was initially targeted by a false rumor that he was unvaccinated was bullied relentlessly until he took his own life in January, a lawsuit claims.  The suit filed Monday [4/25/2022] against the Latin School of Chicago alleges administrators at the private college prep school — which charges more than $40,000 annually in tuition — committed "willful failure" to stop the incessant bullying, the Chicago Tribune reported.  The Cook County filing named the school, several employees and parents of the alleged bullies as defendants.  [Video clip]

The next wave of mask mandates.  To be generous, the use of masks during what was billed as a viral based respiratory pandemic is pseudoscience at best, given what was worn, how it was worn, where it was worn, the duration it was worn, and so on and so on. [...] To rational people, it should be clear that there was never a scientific rationale to justify masking's use and obvious child abuse to continue.  But if I were an evil genius, how could I keep my pet project of subjugation — I mean protecting the public's safety — going?  Well, this is a medical issue, after all, so I'd look for the obvious: the medical environment.  Though I am not an evil genius, there is a guy who plays one on TV.  He goes by the name of Dr. Fauci, though sometimes my fingers type too fast and it appears as Fraudci.  According to Dr. Fraudci, I mean Fauci, the pandemic is over, but that is no reason for the mask not to keep on giving.

Politico asks why did Kamala take the Pfizer wonder drug if she's asymptomatic?  It's a good question.  I had the same one when I heard someone on television mention she was taking it.  We were told she tested positive for COVID-19 but she is asymptomatic.  If she has no symptoms, why is she taking Pfizer's wonder drug?  The simple answer is because she's the vice-president.  If she was Kamala Harris, the office assistant from down the street, she very likely wouldn't have access to the drug, Paxlovid.  The Covid-19 antiviral pill, according to the Politico piece, is reserved for patients "at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19," according to the Food and Drug Administration's emergency use authorization standards."  Is Kamala a high risk patient?

There's something funny about Kamala's case of COVID.  Kamala has COVID, and it is, allegedly, a light, asymptomatic case.  However, she's being treated with heavy-duty medicine.  The disconnect between these two facts makes it easy to come up with some cool conspiracy theories that will last as long as it takes Kamala to return to her office.  On Tuesday [4/26/2022], Kamala Harris put out a tweet announcing that she was COVID positive, along with the ritual thanks for the vaccine and booster, neither of which protected her from getting COVID.

What I've Seen in the Last Two Years Is Unprecedented': Physician on COVID Vaccine Side Effects on Pregnant Women.  Dr. James Thorp is an extensively published 68-year-old physician MD board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, as well as maternal-fetal medicine, who has practiced obstetrics for over 42 years.  Thorp told The Epoch Times that he sees 6,000 [to] 7,000 high-risk pregnant patients a year and has seen many complications among them due to the COVID vaccines.  "I've seen many, many, many complications in pregnant women, in moms and in fetuses, in children, offspring," Thorp said, "fetal death, miscarriage, death of the fetus inside the mom.  "What I've seen in the last two years is unprecedented," Thorp asserted.

Hundreds of CDC Employees Haven't Received a COVID-19 Vaccine.  Nearly 400 employees at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) haven't received a COVID-19 vaccine, according to data obtained exclusively by The Epoch Times.  A total of 382 workers at the CDC are unvaccinated, Roger Andoh, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) officer at the agency, told The Epoch Times.  Another nine employees have just had one dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, meaning they also don't qualify as fully vaccinated per the CDC's guidelines.  Collectively, the number is 3.2 percent of the CDC's workforce.

Moderna officially asks FDA to authorize Covid vaccine for children as young as six months old.  Moderna has applied for authorization from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to use its COVID-19 vaccines in children as young as six months old, the company announced Thursday [4/28/2022].  It comes as part of a larger move by the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based company to finally get its shots authorized for people under 18 in America[,] putting it on par with its main competition in the rollout of the shots, Pfizer.  Some experts doubt that the shots are needed at all in children, though, especially for those as young as six months old who face little individual risk from the virus.

Michigan Investigated Hundreds of Doctors [and] Nurses Over COVID-related Complaints.  Hundreds of nurses and doctors, including a chief medical examiner, have been investigated by the state of Michigan on COVID-related allegations ranging from videotaping a wedding where some guests weren't wearing masks to telling trick-or-treaters not to get the vaccine.  Authorities dismissed many of the complaints.  Dozens are still pending, with a number referred for disciplinary action.  Some have been referred to the Michigan Attorney General's office for criminal prosecution.  An allergy and asthma specialist is the subject of one of the referrals sent to the attorney general.  The complaint accuses the doctor of prescribing "a lethal dosage" of ivermectin.  Copies of the complaints, which total more than 500, were provided exclusively to the Epoch Times.  The Pacific Justice Institute obtained the records through a FOIA request.  The institute represents some of the accused nurses and doctors.

Wait — the election isn't until November!
'Perfect storm' for measles outbreaks forecast as cases spike 79%.  While praying the worst days of the COVID-19 pandemic are behind us, global health officials warn to be vigilant about other potential outbreaks — this time, measles.  Cases of the disease spiked 79% during the first two months of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021, according to a joint statement issued by the World Health Organization and UNICEF.  Experts fear that all the time spent indoors during the pandemic — and people who aren't vaccinated against measles — poses risks for the youngest among us, creating a "perfect storm" for outbreaks.  "Measles is more than a dangerous and potentially deadly disease.  It is also an early indication that there are gaps in our global immunization coverage, gaps vulnerable children cannot afford," said Catherine Russell, UNICEF executive director.

The Editor says...
I'm no doctor, but I had the measles when I was a little kid.  So did everybody else in town, at one time or another, and I never heard of anybody dying from it.  On the other hand, you should carefully consider whatever your doctor recommends.  Given our experience with the benevolent government watching out for our health, whether we wanted their help or not, over the last two years, I'm very skeptical (even more than usual) about government warnings about widespread diseases.  Also beware of meaningless percentages in news reports:  Cases spiked 79 percent, they say.  How many cases?  A hundred?  A thousand?  What defines a "case?"

Fauci thinks arrogant technocrats should trump the rule of law.  Anthony Fauci was "surprised and disappointed" by last week's ruling against the mask mandate for travelers issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  "This is a CDC issue," President Joe Biden's top medical adviser told CNN.  "It should not have been a court issue."  Fauci, who objects to federalism as well as judicial review, embodies the mild-mannered arrogance of technocrats who assume their scientific expertise trumps the rule of law.  Because they believe they know what is best for us, they are dismayed by any attempt to limit their influence or restrain their power.  Fauci did vaguely criticize the substance of US District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle's decision, calling her reasoning "not sound" and "not particularly firm."  But his main point was that she had no business determining whether the CDC had complied with the law because courts should not be "getting involved in things that are unequivocally public-health decisions."

At least 58% of U.S. population has natural antibodies from previous Covid infection, CDC says.  Three out of every 5 people in the U.S. now have antibodies from a previous Covid-19 infection with the proportion even higher among children, demonstrating how widespread the virus was during the winter omicron surge, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The proportion of people with natural Covid antibodies increased substantially from about 34% of the population in December to about 58% in February during the unprecedent wave of infection driven by the highly contagious omicron variant.  The CDC's analysis didn't factor in people who had antibodies from vaccination.

COVID vaccine victim?  Meet Dr. Avindra Nath of the NIH.  Dr. Nath has basically thrown hundreds of thousands (and more likely millions) of vaccine-injured people under the bus by denying a link between the COVID vaccines and injury.  From this Jan 20, 2022 article, In rare cases, coronavirus vaccines may cause Long Covid — like symptoms, we learn that  ["]The research was small in scale and drew no conclusions about whether or how vaccines may have caused rare, lasting health problems.  The patients had 'temporal associations' between vaccination and their faltering health, says Avindra Nath, clinical director at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), who has been leading the NIH efforts.  But 'an etiological association?  I don't know.'  In other words, he does not know whether vaccination directly caused the subsequent health problems.["]  Furthermore, this article makes it crystal clear that Nath has known about the vaccine injured since January 2021[.]

Fauci Lets His Megalomania Show.  The Biden administration's chief medical adviser made last year what C.S. Lewis might have called a "lunatic, liar, or lord" statement when he essentially claimed to be the embodiment of science.  Five days ago, this man went even further, declaring that the executive branch should be free to act outside of boundaries put in place to prevent an all-powerful presidency.  He's a menace.  We'd all be better off if he were a Washington Nationals batboy rather than a powerful government functionary and influential media darling.  Anthony Fauci — we won't grant him the honor of the title of "Dr." because he's far more bureaucrat than healer — who heads the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases is not science, even though in June 2021 he said his critics, of whom there are many but not enough, are "really criticizing science because I represent science."

Fact-Checkers Don't Always Check Facts.  "Fact-Checkers" are often just propagandists with a cute title.  In a perfect world, fact-checkers would check just facts.  However, all too often, the anointed arbiters of truth equate opinion as fact and label rhetoric or even parody as "false." Donald Trump was "fact-checked" by the Washington Post 30,573 times. [...] Politifact fact-checked Ron DeSantis when he told high school students that they could take their masks off and offered "They don't do anything."  Politifact labeled that statement false.  Yes, masks "do something," like a screendoor on a submarine will, technically "stop" some water, but from a practical standpoint, cloth masks are near to useless.

Coming to America:  Food Insecurity Is Inevitable.  After one-third of the horrific term of President Joe Biden is almost complete, the United States of America is facing a series of mind-boggling crises.  The Biden administration's COVID-19 response focused on forcing Americans to wear masks and take vaccines.  The President pushed mandates and lockdowns, instead of freedom.  The toll on our economy, overall health and psychological well-being has been staggering.  This week, in their commitment to continue these policies, the administration refused to abandon the unnecessary and ridiculous mask mandate for public transportation and will appeal a federal judge's sensible ruling striking down this unpopular mandate.

Prepping the Mind.  Many see the troubles coming.  The economics are unsustainable, the energy (with their successful plan) is unsustainable, the culture that made America great is being eaten alive by massive waves of illegal immigration from the southern border; a farming capacity that's been systematically dismantled, an oil industry that's under constant assault to either production or distribution and you have a world where one must prepare for the worst, part of that is prepping the mind.  Discussions on this blog of the communist infiltration into all sectors of government is meant to do just that.  These people are not the county clerks and state employees of the 1950s television shows and movies.  They aren't just petty little tyrants with the power to make one knuckle under, they're enemy combatants inside the lines.  Nothing should have made that more apparent than the past year of lockdowns where some unelected "health official" systematically destroyed capitalism and small business in America with the stroke of a pen or the breath of a command.

What Are Your Memories From Two Years of the COVID Cult?  After a Federal Judge found that the CDC overstepped its authority by mandating masks, the left stepped in to declare, among other things, that the judge was too young. [...] The most absurd impact, for me, was golf.  Courses were shut down.  When they eventually reopened, the flagpoles had an attachment so the holes were covered; the ball wouldn't drop in the hole.  Apparently COVID was lurking down there, like a scary clown, ready to grab fingers and infect golfers.  Sand rakes were removed.  You could drive to a course with another person, but you couldn't ride in a shared cart.  And masks were required on courses.

The Arc of a Fraud.  Dr. Naomi Wolf of the Daily Clout hosted Mr. Edward Dowd, former Blackrock portfolio manager for a 2nd conversation yesterday.  Watching the two of them piece together this insane vaccination puzzle is an amazing thing to observe.  We must appreciate that while big players on the Internet have forced people like them mostly underground, the Internet itself is still a miraculous tool without which the public would have no chance of pulling back the curtain of propaganda and figuring things out for ourselves.  Mr. Dowd presented his theory regarding the mass vaccination program that he arrived at using a combination of factors and sources.  Dr. Wolf and her team have been able to back Mr. Dowd's theories with evidence of fraud and coverups that they've begun to uncover in the trove of FDA documents that have been released so far.  The two of them together are a powerhouse that is shifting the Overton Window with herculean efforts.  [Video clip]

769 Athletes have Collapsed While Competing Over The Past Year.  Over the past year-plus, athletes across the world have been dropping like flies as they compete in games.  If they aren't passed out cold, they are seen gripping their chests in agony, unable to breathe due to sudden cardiac events that hit in the heat of the competition.  This wave of heart issues is unprecedented, to say the least.  Never before have we seen young, healthy, world-class athletes experiencing heart issues en masse like this.  It has never happened, ever.  Furthermore, the timing of this sweeping phenomenon could not be more relevant, coinciding perfectly with the rollout of the experimental Covid-19 vaccines.

6 Double Standards Public Health Officials Used to Justify COVID Vaccines.  [#1]  COVID deaths are 'presumed,' but vaccine deaths must be 'proven'.  As of April 8, VAERS included 26,699 reports of deaths following COVID vaccines.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officially acknowledges only nine of these.  In order to establish causality, the CDC requires autopsies to rule out any possible etiology of death before the agency will place culpability on the vaccine.  But the CDC uses a very different standard when it comes to identifying people who died from COVID. [...] If a person dies with a positive PCR test or is presumed to have COVID, the CDC will count that as COVID-19 death.  Note that in the CDC's definition, a COVID fatality does not mean the person died from the disease, only with the disease.  Why is an autopsy required to establish a COVID vaccine death but not to establish a COVID death?

US Army doctor reveals medics were told not to report adverse COVID jab reactions.  A U.S. Army lieutenant colonel and combat physician has described how fellow medics in the Army were told not to enter records of COVID jab adverse reactions into official databases.  "They either look the other way or they just say, 'Well, I can't do that.  It doesn't exist'," said Dr. Peter Chambers, a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army, Special Forces Green Beret, and combat physician.

Washington Post:  A Chinese lab identified COVID in December 2019 but the government kept it quiet.  The Washington Post editorial board has a detailed story about a laboratory in Guangzhou, China which was one of the first in the country to genetically sequence COVID-19.  The lab had been sent a sample from a hospitalized patient in Wuhan who had some kind of lung infection.  A researcher at the lab saw the sequencing results and recognized it as a variant of SARS on December 26, 2019.

A Medical Dictator.  I believe that Dr. Anthony Fauci is a medical dictator, and I have reached this conclusion through personal experience.  Under his 'guidance' at the NIH, every level of government as well as the private sector have been affected by his medical advice.  Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle ruled that requiring masks on airplanes is unconstitutional as the CDC had overstepped its authority when demanding the practice.  It was a great decision and many airline companies immediately removed their mask requirements.  Both airline passengers and employees noted what a relief this was.  Some airline officials commented that many of the passenger conflicts reported over the past couple of years were related to the requirement to wear masks.  After my last visit to see my doctor, it was clear that Dr. Fauci was guilty of medical tyranny.  I was required to wear a mask.  All the staff were required to wear masks, though many wore the mask below the nose — one wonders if that does any good at all.

Masking the Mask Mandate Morass.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is a federal agency within the Department of Health and Human Services.  Over the years, and especially in the COVID era, HHS has come to stand for Health through Human Servitude.  But on Monday, a federal judge struck down the slavish federal mask mandate, the nagging reminder of the coerced intimacy (viz. rape) of bureaucratic rule.  Alerted of the change midair, passengers and crew cheered their liberation.  Horrified by the loss of their sham authority, the master class counterattacked by assailing the opinion and particularly the Florida federal judge who wrote it.  It turns out that Kathryn Kimball Mizelle became a federal judge at the young age of 33 and moreover was nominated in September 2020 by President Trump and confirmed in post-election December by the old Republican Senate.  Even worse, she had clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas, among other judges disagreeable to the cognoscenti, including Judge William Pryor of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

What a Week This Has Been.  Florida U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle issued a ruling ending mask mandates on public transportation, indicating they infringed on Americans' rights and were imposed without adhering to the laws governing administrative rule-making.  Regardless of the attacks on her as out of line, her decision was in perfect accord with a recent Supreme Court decision that also said the CDC had overreached its authority when it limited evictions. [...] Most travelers and airline personnel were elated to be able to breathe freely again, and those who don't are free to continue masking up, but Dr. Fauci seemed disconsolate that his dictatorship over the country was over.

The Maniacal Mask Crisis Tyrants.  Chances are if you say the word "Florida" to a progressive socialist leftist they will go into a frothing apoplectic rage.  Now, I live in Texas and I wish that saying "Texas" would do the same, but perhaps that is the topic of another missive.  Under the leadership of Governor Ron DeSantis, the State of Florida has truly become a thorn in the side of leftists.  How dare anyone stand up to the left's agenda, and not capitulate to some doggone woke corporate fascist oligarch, like a Disney.  But it is not just Gov. DeSantis.  There is a new face of pain and anguish for the left in America, and that face is also out of Florida.  That face, and judicial prowess, belongs to one US District Court Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle.  Something tells me that Judge Mizelle has no issue defining what a woman is.  Last week it was Judge Mizelle's ruling against mask mandates that have thrown the left into a fit.  Thankfully, we still have some judges who understand that their job is to interpret the law and not make laws.

COVID testing company in California fined $22M after falsifying test results.  A California company agreed to pay $22 million in fines after claiming to provide COVID test results within 24 hours and then allegedly falsifying results to meet demand according to a criminal complaint filed Wednesday.  Sameday Health, operated by Sameday Technologies, boasts 55 testing centers across the country after setting up shop in September 2020.  For $195 they promised consumers that they would provide test results within 24 hours, a claim Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer and Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón argued was entirely impossible.  According to the complaint filed by Feuer and Gascón, Sameday's "promise was false — Sameday could not guarantee a 24-hour turnaround time" as lab contracts "expressly stated that they could not deliver results that quickly.  In fact, out of more than 500 test results "confirmed or suspected to be faked, falsified, or forged," many results were provided before the outside labs had even received the test to analyze.

Mass Testing:  The Fatal Conceit.  Afew decades ago, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) robots, DNA sequencers, and high-speed computers fostered and accompanied quite a scientific revolution in virology.  Acknowledging this radical change, some illustrious scholars alerted their scientific community on a hazardous drift away from investigating the viral ecology, pathogenesis, and disease potential, along with viral identification by testing.  "In summary", wrote Calisher and al. (2001),  ["]remarkable advances in molecular genetics have allowed rapid and precise identifications of viruses and of their genomes; however, such characterizations thus far can provide only limited information about the phenotype and disease potential of a virus.["]

How opportunists got rich off COVID-19 pandemic by stealing our money.  On Saturday, April 26, 2020, Robert Stewart Jr., a 33-year-old contractor from Virginia, invited an investigative reporter to take a trip on his private jet.  "I'm talking with you against the advice of my attorney," Stewart laughed, before bringing J. David McSwane aboard a luxury Legacy 450 Flexjet, which he'd rented to deliver six million N95 masks during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Stewart had recently landed a $34.5 million contract with the US Department of Veterans Affairs, which operates the nation's largest network of hospitals, promising to provide them with enough of the medical-grade (and at the time, scarce) masks to meet the overwhelming demand.  Problem was, there were no masks aboard the plane.

The Government's Mask Confusion.  You can't blame the president for being confused.  His public health advisers seem pretty confused themselves.  They've convinced him that migrants pose no public health threat but that Americans who travel in anything from Ubers to commercial jetliners do.  He will end swift deportations for those who enter the country unlawfully but impose civil and criminal penalties on airline passengers who don't wear masks.  The administration also is sending confusing signals on vaccines.  The Food and Drug Administration has authorized a fourth COVID-19 vaccine dose for people over 50, but the CDC's vaccine advisory committee didn't endorse four shots.  And the confusion isn't confined to Washington.  The city of Philadelphia revived its indoor mask mandate on April 18 and rescinded it three days later.  On April 22, the Board of Health "retired the system of COVID-19 response levels" — the methodology that had prompted the mandate's revival.  The CDC, however, isn't giving up on mask mandates, despite their questionable value.

Fauci's worst soundbite of the pandemic.  Ed flagged this earlier but I want to give it more exposure.  It's an amazing insight into how authoritarian the public health bureaucracy has become during the pandemic.  One could dismiss Fauci's reasoning here by saying, "Look, he's a doctor, not a lawyer.  He's not supposed to know the ins-and-outs of how policy is made."  Okay, well, he's been the head of a federal agency for nearly 40 years.  One would hope that he's picked up a passing acquaintance with the niceties of the process during that time.  Besides, you don't need legal training to grasp the problem with the idea that courts shouldn't have power to review the lawfulness of federal policy provided that it's endorsed by scientists.  All you need is a third-grade-level civics education.  If you made it to the day in class where the teacher explained the three branches of government, congratulations, you're equipped to spot the problem here.  [Tweet]

GOP lawmaker slams 'Lord Fauci' for insinuating he has higher power than the legal system.  [Quoting Rep.] Lee Zeldin:  ["]Lord Fauci thinking that he has higher power than the legal system, our constitution, our laws.  Very slippery slope — where in the name of a public health emergency, this type of an awesome power that he wants to claim going forward can end up going even further than what we witnessed for the last two years during this pandemic.  You know, what we're seeing right now in the state of New York is that the Department of Health is looking to advance a regulation that would expand quarantine and isolation if there is some type of a public health emergency, and you can isolate and quarantine outside of someone's home involuntarily.  We can see ways that CDC, lord Fauci and others might seek to go even further with mandates and restrictions where there isn't a balance, where there isn't a check.  Is he thinking that maybe he can overrule the legislative branch too and the judiciary?["]

The Biological Weapons Convention does not prohibit biological weapons.  Deborah G. Rosenbaum, the US Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological defense programs (ASD(NCB)), testified to the House subcommittee on Intelligence and Special Operations on April 1, 2022, that "I can say to you unequivocally there are no offensive biologic weapons in the Ukraine laboratories that the United States has been involved with."  With this testimony, the US Department of Defense has made a clear statement that there were no OFFENSIVE biological weapons that the US was involved with.  Did you catch that slight-of-hand?  No offensive biological weapons.  Why would the US admit to such a thing?  Wouldn't that set off alarm bells in the international community?  The answer is that developing and even stockpiling biological weapons is allowed under Article I of the convention on the prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons and on their Destruction (BWC).  This international convention (treaty) allows that the development, production and stockpiling of "defensive" biological weapons are perfectly legal.

Dr. Peter McCullough:  Pilot's heart attack after COVID shot fits 'pattern'.  An American Airlines pilot who suffered cardiac arrest six minutes after landing an Airbus A321 jetliner with 200 people aboard at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport blames the COVID-19 shot his company required employees to get.  Proving the cause is difficult, but Captain Robert Snow's case does fit a pattern, said Dr. Peter McCullough, a world-renowned cardiologist and critic of the COVID vaccines who practices in Dallas.  McCullough was one of the physicians who attended the pilot at the Baylor Scott and White Health Center in Dallas after the April 9 incident.  After Snow's heart stopped and he became unconscious while parked at a gate, the pilot was removed from the plane and woke up in the ICU. Later, from his hospital room, he recorded a video (embedded at the end of the article) in which he described being forced to take the vaccine, which he fears has ended his flying career.

Study: California [is] Among [the] Worst States Dealing With COVID-19.  When COVID-19 hit two years ago, how many times did we hear California politicians say we must "follow the science"? Instead, they followed the politics.  That's what's indicated in a study by the National Bureau of Economic Research:  "A Final Report Card on the States' Response to COVID-19."  The study was reviewed by noted Stanford professor of medicine Jay Bhattacharya.  It comes as America finally is moving beyond the pandemic and returning to normalcy, or at least trying to.  Reported The Epoch Times this week, "Federal Judge Strikes Down CDC Mask Mandate for Planes, Travel."  The study, by economists Phil Kerpen, et al., noted America's federalist model allowed the states to adopt different responses:  "States learned from one another over time about what policies worked most and least effectively in terms of containing the virus while minimizing the negative effects of lockdown strategies on businesses and children."

Biden's selective COVID emergency.  Is the pandemic over now, or will it end in May, or August, or after Election Day?  Depending on the issue, the Biden administration's answer is "all of the above."  The pandemic is over now when it comes to masking at the White House and the impressively low unemployment rate.  When it comes to masks on transit and Title 42, the Trump-era policy of turning away migrants at the border, the pandemic will end in May.  When it comes to ending the student loan repayment pause, the pandemic will end on Aug. 31, or maybe after Election Day.

Mathematician: Governments Manipulated COVID Data To Panic The Masses & Create "Crisis".  A mathematician and professor of risk information management at Queen Mary University of London has started warning the public about how government officials manipulated the COVID-19 data and lied to the public when implementing testing, lockdown, mask, and vaccine protocols throughout the plandemic.  Dr. Norman Fenton, Ph.D., says that almost from the very start of the scamdemic, he could see that health officials were manufacturing "proof" of a crisis in order to mislead the public into accepting wide-scale tyranny and medical abuse under the guise of getting "vaccinated".  Fenton spoke with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., on his "RFK Jr.  The Defender Podcast" about this subject, revealing that most governments were willing to not "let a crisis go to waste," so they created nonsensical propaganda and peddled it to their people.  "It was clear I think from the start that most of the data that governments put out — not just the UK government, but most governments around the world ... were kind of misleading because it was based on very easily manipulated statistics," Fenton told Kennedy when asked about the challenges he saw when the plandemic first emerged.

L.A. Leftists Embrace Permanent Pandemic With New Mask Mandate.  While the masks come off on nationwide public transit, Los Angeles leftists rejected the pandemic-restriction era's end with their own mask requirement for buses, trains, and ride-share starting on Friday [4/22/2022].  Residents in L.A. County, who saw the first reintroduction of mask mandates after those restrictions were lifted when therapeutics became more widely available, will still be required to wear facial coverings in line with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  "They are experts," Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said of the CDC during an online briefing with reporters, according to a local ABC affiliate.  "They made a determination that at this point having that requirement in place is necessary for the public's health, and that resonates with us."

Connecting the Dots on Early COVID Treatments.  As you may well know, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and ivermectin are among the most frequently mentioned drugs for early treatment of COVID-19.  Both drugs were originally used to combat tropical diseases like malaria (HCQ) and river blindness (ivermectin).  What follows is a very brief history of how they were repurposed for treating COVID-19.   In 2010, zinc ionophores were shown to inhibit replication of coronaviruses.  This research was done at Dr. Ralph Baric's Lab at UNC at Chapel Hill.  Four years later, a dose-response experiment demonstrated the ability of chloroquine to serve as a zinc ionophore for cells cultured in vitro.  In early 2020 this information was used to treat COVID-19 in China, France, and the U.S.  Unfortunately, following publication of a fraudulent study in the Lancet in May 2020, governments and medical institutions all over the Western world limited access to HCQ for treatment of COVID-19.  Many states in the US followed suit by imposing their own restrictions on HCQ.

In sudden reversal, Philly nixes mandated masking and the COVID warning system that triggered it.  Philadelphia reversed its decision to bring back indoor masking on Friday after just three days, and at the same time scrapped a new public health department COVID-19 response system that made it the only large U.S. city to bring back a mask mandate this spring.  Health officials and Mayor Jim Kenney offered differing reasons.  While the health commissioner framed the decision as one driven by data and science, Kenney cited politics and logistics.  The day the mandate went into effect, a Florida judge struck down a federal rule requiring masking on public transit.  Regional transit agency SEPTA lifted its requirement that people wear masks on its vehicles later that day.

Flip-flopping.  Because the science is settled!
Philadelphia Drops Indoor Mask Mandate Five Days After Reinstating It.  Five days after reinstating a city-wide indoor mask mandate, Philadelphia abruptly decided to drop it again.  This past Saturday, a group of businesses filed a lawsuit challenging the city's renewed order.  According to the update posted on the city's official website today,  ["]The City of Philadelphia announced today that residents and visitors are strongly encouraged, but not required, to wear a mask in indoor public spaces.  This change follows a recent leveling-off of case counts and a decrease in COVID-19 hospitalizations in the city.["]  The city further explained that residents and visitors "are permitted and encouraged" to wear masks in any setting.  All private businesses and other institutions "are allowed" to implement Covid policies that are stricter than those ordered by the city, the announcement noted.

COVID is over.  We're not supposed to say "COVID is over," but that's about all there is to say when India's latest breakout has almost nobody getting sick and doctors call it "no cause for concern."  Caseloads in the major city of Mumbai more than quadrupled in recent weeks, from 300 per month to nearly 400 each week.  Despite the increase, "A lone death was reported in Gondhia," according to The Times of India.  Dr Pradeep Awate told the paper, "Data from genome sequencing shows there is no new variant in circulation and only Omicron's sub lineages are present in India."  The city's positive test rate is only 1%, but they aren't enforcing a universal testing regime as China has done.  Between that and 95% of the known positives showing zero symptoms, it's likely that Mumbai's actual infection rate is much higher than just 1%.  It isn't like India has gotten off easy to date.  The world's most populous country has also suffered the third-largest death toll, behind the U.S. and Brazil.

Recipients of Biden-touted Paxlovid report Covid symptoms returning and even testing positive for the virus again.  Paxlovid has been deemed one of the gold standard Covid treatments in the U.S., even being touted by President Joe Biden at his State of the Union address this year.  Some of those who used the drug to treat the virus are reporting an interesting phenomena, though.  The drug, developed by Pfizer, is believed to be highly effective at preventing hospitalization or death in a person that has already been infected with the virus, but some who had their symptoms initially clear up after using the drug are reporting feeling symptoms again later on.

FDA and Pfizer Knew COVID Shot Caused Immunosuppression.  With another batch of 11,000 Pfizer documents, released April 1, 2022, old suspicions have gained fresh support.  As reported by "Rising" cohost Kim Iversen (video above), the first bombshell revelation is that natural immunity works, and Pfizer has known it all along.  The clinical trial data showed there was no difference in outcomes between those with previous COVID infection and those who got the shot.  Neither group experienced severe infection.  Natural immunity was also statistically identical to the shot in terms of the risk of infection.  The second revelation is that side effects from the shots were more severe in younger people, aged 18 to 55, than those aged 55 and older.  (The risk of side effects also increased with additional doses, so the risk was higher after the second dose than the first.)  As many of us have said all along, the risk of severe COVID is dramatically lower in younger people than those over 60, which makes an elevated risk of side effects unacceptable.

Male Pfizer trial participants were required to abstain from sex or use contraception.  Official documents show that Pfizer instructed male COVID vaccine trial participants to abstain from sex or use condoms to protect against potential fertility issues caused by the novel jabs.  "Male participants in the Pfizer clinical trials were required to either abstain from sex or use condoms," posted prominent doctor Aaron Kheriaty on social media yesterday, accompanied with the clinical trial documentation to support his statement.  "[The] Comirnaty [Pfizer COVID vaccine] insert mentions that the product had 'not been evaluated for the potential to cause carcinogenicity, genotoxicity, or impairment of male fertility,'" added the doctor, linking to the Food and Drug Administration's official insert.

I'm no doctor, but that doesn't sound all that unusual.  If you're taking an experimental drug for the purpose of discovering its side-effects, of course you'd want to guard against hereditary toxicity.

Super Lawyer Takes on DOD Vax Mandates.  The Biden administration's vaccine mandates purporting to force U.S. military members to take the experimental Covid injections are unconstitutional and, because of the potential for genetic changes, may have implications involving patents and intellectual property, super lawyer Todd Callender tells The New American magazine's Alex Newman in this episode of Conversations That Matter.  To protect the U.S. military, the rights of troops, and the U.S. Constitution, Callender has joined forces with other attorneys such as Tom Renz to sue the Department of Defense.  [Video clip]

If Masks Work, Wear One — and If They Don't, Why Mandate Them?  This week, U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle struck down the Biden administration's mask mandate for airplanes and other public transportation methods.  Videos posted on social media showed airplane passengers cheering when told that the now tiresome face mask was no longer needed in the airport or on the plane.  We have been masked up on public transportation for more than two years, with little scientific rationale for this new practice.  It's the first time public health officials have recommended, then required, masking to prevent transmission of a respiratory virus.  In fact, the CDC and WHO, early in the pandemic, did not recommend facial coverings, except for those who are immunocompromised or otherwise at higher risk.

Americans Don't Like Being Told What to Do.  When we say emphatically, "All men are created equal," there is no boilerplate fine print for us down below qualifying, "Except for corrupt politicians, noble leftovers from the days of medieval feudalism, corporate oligarchs, or communist dictators, all of whom are obviously superior to and entitled to rule over the rest of us in perpetuity."  No siree!  We have about as much use for a permanent ruling class as Dr. Fauci has for an introductory ethics textbook — that is to say, none at all!  Ever since COVID-1984 mania was unleashed (intentionally or unintentionally — maybe time will tell) upon the world, the hypnotic drumbeat emanating from the Davos Druids has been steady:  trust the experts.  Obey.  Mandates will set you free.  None in the media dare call it "reprogramming," but that's clearly what it has been.

Medicine as a Subjective Good.  No philosophical argument for freedom depends on the absence of shortage in any market.  America's public health establishment espoused a preposterous political philosophy.  Shortages of other goods — like toilet paper or hand sanitizer in 2020 or gasoline in the 1970s — were never claimed to justify the suspension of freedom.  Since economic freedom improves the performance of markets, shortages should call for more freedom, not less.  What lies behind such bizarre political philosophy?  I suggest an economic fallacy, the objective good (or cost) fallacy.  The health care establishment views medical care as an objective good.  The objective good fallacy sustains the myth of efficient expert management and the desperate suspension of freedom in the face of a shortage.

Fauci's Complaints on 'Dangerous Precedent' of Mask Mandate Ruling Exposes a Disturbing Sense of Entitlement.  In multiple interviews, Dr. Anthony Fauci has weighed in on the Monday ruling from United States District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, which struck down the travel mask mandate.  President Joe Biden's Department of Justice (DOJ) has decided to appeal Judge Mizelle's ruling.  The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has also told the DOJ to reinstate the mandate.  Speaking with CBS News' Robert Costa, Dr. Fauci lamented that a judge would dare to rule on the mask mandate as it applied to the CDC overstepping its authority, including when it comes to the Administrative Procedure Act (APA).  Costa had asked Fauci "does the CDC, with all respect, have any power anymore if one judge can say 'no thanks' to its mandates," expressing a rather narrow-minded oversimplification of the issue.

L.A. County to keep mask mandate at airports, on public transit.  Los Angeles County is issuing a new health officer order that continues to require masks at airports, on all public transit and in other indoor transportation hubs.  The new order comes after a federal judge on Monday overturned a federal mandate that required masks on trains, planes, buses and at travel hubs.  Then on Wednesday, the Department of Justice filed a notice of appeal seeking to reverse the decision at the request of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Also Wednesday, the California Department of Public Health updated its state guidance to recommend — but no longer require — masks on public transit.

How America Became La La Land.  America these last 14 months resembles a dystopia.  It is becoming partly the world of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, partly the poet Homer's land of the Lotus-Eaters.  Nothing seems to be working.  And no one in control seems to care.  The once secure border of 2020 vanished.  Two-million people have crossed the southern border illegally in the last twelve months.  Millions more are on the way.  The Biden Administration unilaterally and simply destroyed existing immigration law.  What followed was surreal.  The administration claimed COVID was again on the horizon.  So it justified forcing American citizens to keep wearing masks in public buildings and transportation.  But at the same time, it waived all such requirements for illegal entrants.  Citizens who obeyed our laws had to mask up; foreign nationals who broke them did not need to take such precautions.

Rhode Island Dems Introduce Bill To Double Income Taxes For Parents Of Unvaccinated Children.  Just as pandemic restrictions were starting to ease across the country, some areas have started to re-introduce mask mandates.  Philadelphia was the first major city to do so last week.  Now, Democrats in the state of Rhode Island want to impose a monthly fine of $50 for parents of unvaccinated children and double their state income taxes.  The bill was introduced by State Senator Sam Bell, who even gets flak from his Democratic colleagues in the state legislature for being radical and divisive.  Bell justified the bill by saying that there is support for vaccine mandates in the state, despite the fact that it's a clear violation of civil liberties for the unvaccinated.

The Weird Logic of COVID-19 Panic.  Start with a simple question:  Does wearing a mask protect you from COVID-19?  If the answer is "yes," and you are protected by your mask, then why does it matter whether or not other people are also wearing masks?  If you think other people must also be compelled to wear masks — because their mask protects you from their germs, supposedly — then doesn't that imply that your mask is ineffective?  But if your mask isn't working to protect you, then why do you think their mask is necessary, since you apparently don't think masks really provide a barrier to germs?  We could have a long discussion about the efficacy of masks — do they reduce the spread of airborne viruses by 10% or 20% or whatever? — but the real bottom line is that people who act as if masks will protect them from COVID-19 don't really seem to believe masks work that way, or else they would be content to protect themselves and not worry about whether other people are also wearing masks.  And we could say much the same thing about COVID-19 vaccine mandates:  If you think the vaccine will protect you, why does it matter whether other people are also vaccinated?  The fact that the arguments for mandates are so easily exposed as illogical — the people in panic mode can't really justify their panic — tells you that the real motivations are emotional in nature, reflecting a dictatorial mentality that seeks to impose conformity to rules on others.

MSNBC Guest Suggests Lying To People On A Plane To Get Them To Mask, Tell Them You Have Children With Cancer.  MSNBC's Dr Patel advising the public to carry more than one mask, and ask people around them to wear them even saying carry multiple tests!  She even went as far as suggesting lying to the people sitting around you on a plane that you have a child with cancer to guilt them into putting one of the masks you are handing to them on.  [Video clip]

CDC asks Justice Department to proceed with mask mandate appeal.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is asking the Department of Justice to proceed with its appeal of a ruling issued by a Florida judge on Monday which tossed out the Biden administration's mask mandate for public transportation passengers.  "To protect CDC's public health authority beyond the ongoing assessment announced last week, CDC has asked DOJ to proceed with an appeal in Health Freedom Defense Fund, Inc., et al., v. Biden, et al.  It is CDC's continuing assessment that at this time an order requiring masking in the indoor transportation corridor remains necessary for the public health.  CDC will continue to monitor public health conditions to determine whether such an order remains necessary.  CDC believes this is a lawful order, well within CDC's legal authority to protect public health," the statement reads.

See?  It's not about disease control; it's about accumulating and retaining power.
White House:  Legal Defense of Mask Mandate Necessary to Preserve CDC Power.  The White House on Wednesday said President Joe Biden's administration would continue to defend mask mandates leveled by the Centers for Disease Control, despite airline passengers celebrating a court ruling effectively ending them.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended the two-week extension of the mask mandate on planes and public transportation, arguing the CDC "felt they needed that" to examine more data about the coronavirus pandemic.  She said the Justice Department announced its willingness to defend the CDC's mandate to help preserve the agency's power over public transportation.  "I mean our focus here was seeing what power we had to preserve what we felt was in the public health interest of the country," Psaki explained.

Delta will keep its mask noncompliance no-fly list in place.  The mask mandates on the major airlines have now gone away.  Unless, of course, the Justice Department succeeds in challenging the ruling leading to the change, as they recently agreed to do.  But there's one aspect of the masking problems on planes that won't be going away for the foreseeable future, at least at Delta Airlines.  During the pandemic, Delta established its own "face mask noncompliance no-fly list," separate from the TSA's no-fly list for those suspected of having ties to terrorism.  And they announced yesterday that the list will remain in effect even now that masks are no longer required.  People may be able to get their names removed from the list, but only on a case-by-case basis and only after the prospective passengers have "proved themselves" and shown that they have reformed their ways to Delta's satisfaction.

COVID-jabbed pilots are suffering cardiac arrest, but the media remains silent to avoid creating "vaccine hesitancy".  An American pilot who almost died mid-flight from a cardiac arrest likely caused by Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) "vaccines" has come forward to share his story with the alternative media.  Since the mainstream media is refusing to even touch the story, American Airlines Captain Robert Snow took the opportunity to talk to Stew Peters about it in a recent interview, which is available through Steve Kirsch's website.  In a nutshell, Snow is incensed over the fact that the United States government is forcing pilots to take the injections — against the law, just to be clear — in order to keep their jobs.  The rule is egregious, tyrannical and simply makes no sense from an epidemiological perspective that assumes the injections actually provide protection (which they do not).

Masks have always had very little to do with protecting the public from COVID.  With the strike of a gavel, a federal court judge overturned the Biden Administration's transportation mask mandate, which was about to be extended for two more weeks into May.  "Wearing a mask cleans nothing.  At most, it traps virus droplets.  But it neither 'sanitizes' the person wearing the mask nor 'sanitizes' the conveyance," wrote U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle in her April 18 ruling.  Mizelle said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) overstepped its authority under the Public Health Services Act, which allows the "inspection, fumigation, disinfection, sanitation, pest extermination, destruction ... and other measures" to protect the public.  Immediately after the ruling, multiple airlines announced they would no longer require masks on planes.  Uber and Lyft, while private companies, followed suit by stating they would no longer require users and drivers to mask up during rides.  The Department of Justice announced on Tuesday it will appeal the federal court's ruling.

A staggering number of athletes collapsed during games this past year.  More than 769 athletes have collapsed on the field during a game from March 2021 to March 2022.  The shocking statistic was revealed by One America News Network (OAN), which also found the average age of the athletes who suffered cardiac arrest is just 23 years old.  The unprecedented surge in cardiac arrest and other heart issues among elite athletes coincides with the rollout of COVID-19 jabs.  The Miami Open made headlines in early April 2022 after 15 players — all of whom had reportedly received COVID-19 injections — dropped out.  Among them were favorites Paula Badosa and Jannik Sinner.  Badosa left the court in tears after becoming unwell, and Sinner's opponent said he saw him "bend over" on the court, noting "it was very strange."

British children [are] up to 52 times more likely to die following a COVID shot: gov't report.  Britain's Office for National Statistics (ONS) has released data indicating that children who received the COVID-19 jabs have suffered a death rate 54 times greater than that of their un-jabbed counterparts.  In December, the ONS published age-standardized data on the mortality rates of individuals in 5-year age sets in Britain, grouped by their "vaccination" status for the COVID-19 shots.  The data accounts for the period from January 1 to October 31, 2021.

For anyone under 80, COVID "vaccines" are deadlier than COVID itself.  If you are not already on death's door, then getting "vaccinated" for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is a really bad bet.  It turns out that the risks associated with getting injected if you are under the age of 80 far outweigh any alleged benefits, new research has found.  "All age groups under 50 years old are at greater risk of dying after receiving a COVID jab than an unvaccinated person is at risk of dying from COVID-19," reported Dr. Joseph Mercola.  "For those under 18, the COVID jab increases their risk of dying from COVID-19.  They're also 51 times more likely to die from the jab than they are to die from COVID if not vaccinated."  As to when a person breaches the age of 60 is there even the remotest chance that a Fauci Flu shot will do anything other than potentially cause blood clots or a heart attack, the evidence shows.  COVID "vaccines" also cause AIDS.

Ryan Campbell: 50-year-old triple-vaxxed Australian cricketer turned coach in critical condition.  No sport has been hit harder by vaccine de-population than soccer.  But high-profile Australian cricketers are trying to play catch-up, and don't mind virtue signaling on their ways out.

DOJ to appeal lifting of federal mask mandate.  The Department of Justice will appeal a federal judge's ruling vacating the federal mask mandate for public transportation, officials announced Tuesday [4/19/2022].  The DOJ and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention "disagree with the district court's decision and will appeal, subject to CDC's conclusion that the order remains necessary for public health," a Tuesday night press release says.

Poland to Pfizer:  Yeah, That Vax Contract We Signed?  We're Not Going to Honor It.  Poland last week notified drug-company Pfizer that the country will not honor its contract to purchase more vaccine doses, Reuters reports.  Hoo boy.  This one's going to court, folks.  [Tweet]  The contract in question — worth about $1.4 billion — is not directly between Pfizer and Poland; it is between the European Commission and vaccine manufacturers.  Pfizer is the biggest supplier to Poland, however, so the result is the same:  Poland is not interested in paying for or receiving any more doses.

The Shots Have Failed, So Let's Amp Up Global Vaccination Rates!  The White House on Monday announced a second global COVID-19 summit to discuss how to bolster vaccination rates internationally, despite data from around the world showing the mRNA and adenovirus-vector vaccines do not stop the spread of the virus, and appear to be associated with a higher rate of non-COVID deaths.  In a joint statement with Belize, Germany, Indonesia, and Senegal, the White House said the purpose of the summit, which is scheduled to be held virtually on May 12, will be to "redouble our collective efforts to end the acute phase of the COVID-19 pandemic and prepare for future health threats."  "The emergence and spread of new variants, like Omicron, have reinforced the need for a strategy aimed at controlling Covid-19 worldwide.  Together, we can mitigate the impact of Covid-19 and protect those at the highest risk with vaccinations, testing, and treatments," the statement said.  "We know we must prepare now to build, sustain, and finance the global capacity we need, not only for emerging Covid-19 variants, but also future health crises."

The COVID-19 Authoritarians Panic Over the End of the Mask Mandates.  An extensive number of executive branch agencies have acted in an authoritarian manner throughout the COVID-19 era:  The Occupational Safety and Health Administration infamously attempted to cram down a vaccine mandate on every private employer in America, a policy struck down by the Supreme Court; the CDC blocked evictions for over a year based on the premise that millions would be thrown from their homes if they didn't take action.  But the CDC's travel mask mandate has been particularly annoying for Americans, given the fact that all over the country, Americans have either been vaccinated or acquired natural immunity, and there is no evidence whatsoever that cloth or surgical masks do anything against the omicron variant of COVID-19.  Nonetheless, the CDC pressed forward this month with a new extension to its mask mandate, despite the fact that the CDC simultaneously argued that beginning in late May, it would relieve Title 42, a regulation designed to allow Border Patrol to turn away likely illegal immigrants at the border.  That regulation was rooted in the premise that a COVID-19 emergency negated the legal requirement to process asylum seekers.

It's Not Just Joe Biden.  The United States Has A Potemkin Government.  Joe Biden's shameful performance at the White House Easter egg roll Sunday was another strong visual indicator that he is not really governing this country.  And he's not the only sham authority in this country — our nation is replete with them. [...] Here's another one:  The utter ridiculousness of our ruling class deliberately destroying our social fabric and the economic activity people need to stay alive in a wild overreaction to a Chinese flu that doesn't target working- and school-age people.  Then that same ruling class lavishing government workers — who worked the least during the unconstitutional mass criminalization of economic and social activity — with "bonuses"! [...] These are very people saying nothing while administrators unilaterally and indefinitely suspend any law they like, using Covid as a fig leaf.

Biden Is Caught Between A Mask And A Hard Spot.  Just days after President Joe Biden's Centers for Disease Control ordered yet another extension of the federal mask mandate, a Florida judge ruled that the agency had no authority to impose it in the first place, saying that "our system does not permit agencies to act unlawfully even in pursuit of desirable ends."  To public cheers, the TSA, Amtrak, the Washington Metro system, and other public transportation systems immediately ditched their mask requirements, even though the Biden administration is appealing the ruling in hopes overturning it.  No one, it seems, trusts the CDC anymore.  But all of this comes as COVID cases appear to be on the upswing.

Hey, here's an idea:  Maybe we can just deal with Covid by ourselves, without the forceful assistance of the government!

DOJ will appeal federal judge's ruling dropping COVID masks for public transport if CDC deems it necessary.  The U.S. Department of Justice says it will appeal a ruling that eliminated COVID-19 mask mandates for public transportation if the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) deems it necessary.  "The Department of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) disagree with the district court's decision and will appeal, subject to CDC's conclusion that the order remains necessary for public health," the DOJ said in a statement.  "The Department continues to believe that the order requiring masking in the transportation corridor is a valid exercise of the authority Congress has given CDC to protect the public health.  That is an important authority the Department will continue to work to preserve."

The Mask Mandate Is Over, and Some Leftists Are Sure We're All Gonna Die.  A federal judge struck down Biden's handlers' mask mandate, and now the true mask believers are sure that we are all doomed, doomed, I tell you. [...] Even Old Joe won't appeal the decision to set aside the mask mandate, which is a tacit admission that he and his handlers know it's nonsense, more superstition and the illusion of protection than anything else, but hey, trust the science, or whatever.

Maskaholics in the press are calling for permanent masking on trains, planes, and buses.  High school students in Seattle staged a protest demanding that a mask mandate be reinstated, and psychologists now deal with the anxieties of children who don't want their classmates to see their faces.  They're suffering from "mask dependency," as this psychological affliction is termed in Japan, where a long tradition of mask-wearing during flu season has left some individuals afraid at any time to expose their faces in public.  It's a difficult addiction to overcome, according to the Japanese therapists who specialize in treating it — but a simple remedy might help some maskaholics.  It's a graph that should be required viewing for everyone still wearing a mask and every public official or journalist who still insists that mask mandates "control the spread."

Maskaholics anonymous.  Politico Playbook reports that the White House is weighing its options in the case holding its mask mandate to be illegal.  I thought that they had to go for it and protect their phony baloney jobs protecting public health consistent with the party line over the past two years, but they see the downside and the escape hatch afforded by Judge Mizelle's ruling yesterday [418/2022].  Politico has to let us know that they (at Politico) recognize the politics of the situation, of course, but that they have no doubt about the wisdom of the absurd regime we lived under until late yesterday afternoon.

Haul Newsom And Other Blue State Pandemic Tyrants To Congress For Hearings.  What is happening to the people of Shanghai is an atrocity.  China's zero-COVID policy has literally imprisoned millions in their own homes in that nation's most populous city.  Police beatings have been reported, as have cases of extreme hunger, and "constant mental anguish and anxiety."  Don't think that could never happen in America.  We, too, have tyrants in government.  And every one of them should be compelled to sweat under the hot lights of a congressional investigative hearing.  Maybe then they would not be so eager to put Americans under house arrest again.  We now have two reports confirming what so many of us already knew: lockdowns were a colossal mistake.  The first analysis, a meta-study of dozens of other studies, found that "lockdowns have had little to no public health effects," and "should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument."  The second discovered that the states with the most laissez-faire pandemic policies fared better than the COVID police states.

Airlines, Amtrak Drop Mask Requirements after Federal Judge Blocks Mandate.  The largest American airline companies and Amtrak said they are dropping requirements to wear masks after a federal judge overturned the Biden administration's mask mandate for air travel and public transportation.  American, Delta, Southwest, United, and Alaska Airlines all said on Monday night that passengers could fly without masks, with some pilots announcing the policy change mid-flight.  U.S. district judge Kathryn Mizelle ruled Monday that the mandate violated the Administrative Procedure Act, and hours later a Biden administration official told media outlets that the mandate "is not in effect at this time."

UK Gov. report admits 19.2 million people in England have not had a single dose of a Covid-19 Vaccine.  For months the British public have been deceived with tales that there are just 5 million people in the United Kingdom who have refused to take up the offer of a Covid-19 vaccine.  But this is a complete fabrication that has no doubt been used to make those who have refused the jab feel as if they are part of a minority.  Because an official UK Government report proves that in England alone there are at least 19.2 million people who have not had a single dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, 21.8 million people who have not had two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine, and 31 million who have not had 3 doses of a Covid-19 Vaccine, meaning nearly half of England's population has become wise to the propaganda and lies spouted by the Government and mainstream media over the past two years.

A brave judge ends the federal mask mandate.  Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, a United States district judge in Florida and a Trump appointee, issued an order today striking down the hated federal mask mandate.  Staying within her lane, she didn't strike it down because even the CDC conceded that the mandate is useless, although she could have.  Instead, she properly concluded that the CDC lacked the statutory authority to issue the mandate and violated the procedures federal agencies must follow to create such rules.  Judge Mizelle's meticulous 59-page decision carefully walks through the applicable facts and law.  The gist is as stated above: the CDC exceeded its mandate when, on February 3, 2021, in response to a directive from Biden, it issued its mask mandate without allowing any public participation or comment under the Administrative Procedure Act.  The CDC's masking mandate is now dead.

Travelers cheer and whip their face coverings off as Biden administration says TSA will NOT enforce mask mandate on planes any longer.  The flight attendants' union is warning that 'inconsistent implementation of mask mandates' after the federal mask mandate on public transportation was struck down will lead to 'more violence' and confusion on planes.  'We urge focus on clear communication so that flight attendants and other frontline workers are not subject to more violence created by uncertainty and confusion,' the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), which represents nearly 50,000 flight attendants across 17 airlines, said in a statement issued to Newsweek Monday [4/18/2022].  'The last thing we need for workers on the frontlines or passengers traveling today is confusion and chaos.  Traveling can be stressful enough and safety comes first with respect for everyone utilizing collective modes of transportation.'

Federal Judge:  Biden Airplane Mask Mandate Illegal.  President Joe Biden's "Mask Mandate" on federal airplanes is illegal, a federal judge ruled on Monday [4/18/2022] in a setback to Biden's COVID-19 agenda.  One day after taking office, Biden issued Executive Order (EO) 13998, ordering the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to develop the Mask Mandate, and for various other federal agencies like the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to implement the CDC's decisions.  EO 13998 also covered airports and other public transportation, such as buses.

Uber, Lyft Drop Mask Requirement.  Uber and Lyft lifted their respective mask requirements for U.S. passengers and drivers on Tuesday, one day after a federal judge overturned the Biden administration's mask mandate for air travel and public transportation.  "Riders and drivers are not required to wear masks when using Uber," the rideshare app told users in a message on Tuesday.  "However, the CDC still recommends wearing a mask if you have certain personal risk factors and/or high transmission levels in your area."  "Remember:  many people still feel safer wearing a mask because of personal or family health situations, so please be respectful of their preferences," Uber said in a statement.  "And if you ever feel uncomfortable, you can always cancel the trip."

Mask Mandate Is History - What Will the Flight Attendant MaskNazis Do?  Ten days ago, I was on another airplane flying home.  The woman seated directly across from me was a flight attendant.  Her flight had been canceled the day before and she was hitching a ride home.  Her mask dangled around her chin for 90 percent of the flight.  We struck up a conversation about masks.  You might have already guessed, she was not a proponent.  She called them unscientific and stupid.  She was in stark contrast to a flight a few months before when a male flight attendant stopped and stared at me.  I looked up and he told me, loudly, to "Get your mask up." Mind you, my mask was on and was covering my nose.  I inched it up and he exploded.  "ARE WE GOING TO HAVE A PROBLEM?!" I didn't want to be sent to the airline gulag and I pulled my mask over my entire nose.  He stared at me for a couple more seconds and then left to inspect the rest of the inmates.

Popular Infusion Could Increase COVID Hospital Stay.  In early 2020, a global pandemic spurred the world into action, especially in the science community.  Researchers began seeking to discover how the COVID-19 virus worked and to uncover the best methods for testing, treating and vaccinating.  One of the interventions that the biomedical community has been pursuing is the use of antivirals, including remdesivir.  The drug was initially analyzed during the Ebola outbreak several years ago but never approved.  Its development was the result of a collaboration involving Gilead Sciences, the CDC and the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases.  Testing was also done on SARS and MERS, which are both zoonotic coronaviruses, as well as two types of common human coronavirus which trigger the common cold.  The medication was developed with a $99 million grant from the American government.

Fauci and others knew China was withholding data on COVID-19 as pandemic began:  Watchdog.  If there ever was any proof that high-ranking government jobs should be term-limited (just like Congress), Dr. Anthony Fauci is a walking, talking, living example.  According to the findings of a legal watchdog, Fauci — head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since the early 1980s — as well as the State Department, knew that China was withholding key data on the then-emerging COVID-19 pandemic, meaning, as well, that the virus was almost certainly manufactured in a lab.  In addition, according to The Epoch Times, the National Institutes of Health sent "experts" from the NIH-funded P4 lab at the University of Texas Medical Branch to instruct Chinese technicians at the Wuhan Institute of Virology about "lab management and maintenance" approximately two years before the pandemic, according to records obtained by Judicial Watch via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (and why does it take lawsuits to get information from government agencies when FOIA is already the law?).

Another Fully Vaxxed Young Athlete Drops Dead From Heart Attack — Media Silent.  We've posted numerous stories recently about healthy individuals suddenly dropping dead from mysterious heart conditions.  The one thing they all have in common — they were all recently vaccinated.  The latest athlete to die young from a heart attack is former Arkansas Razorback lineman and St. Louis native Brian Wallace.

Supreme Court Refuses to Hear COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate Challenge From Teachers.  The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear a New York City vaccine mandate challenge from teachers, meaning the mandate will be allowed to stand.  The nation's high court rejected the case without comment and provided no indication that any of the justices would take it.  The four teachers, who said the COVID-19-related rule violated their right to keep their profession, took their appeal to the Supreme Court after a lower court left the New York City mandate in place.  Those teachers previously asked Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who oversees the state, to provide relief that would block the mandate from going into effect, which Sotomayor also rejected.

Fauci's Agency Scrambled to Answer Questions on Changing Remdesivir Trial Endpoint:  Emails.  Dr. Anthony Fauci and top officials at the agency he heads scrambled in April 2020 to answer questions about altering the endpoint in a trial testing the antiviral drug called remdesivir, newly obtained emails show.  The endpoint was changed in the middle of the trial from measuring the effectiveness against death and various forms of hospitalization on day 15 to time to recovery through day 29.  Gilead Sciences, which makes the drug, announced the results of the trial in early April 29, 2020.  Within hours, Fauci, the longtime head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), was trumpeting them to reporters at the White House.  The trial results proved that remdesivir "can block the virus" that causes COVID-19, said Fauci, who didn't mention the change in endpoint.

Federal judge blocks mask mandate for public transportation.  A federal judge on Monday voided the Biden administration's mask mandate for travelers using public transportation such as trains and airplanes.  The mandate from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention applies to people as young as 2 years old, and had been set to expire a number of times but was recently extended to May 3 before Monday's ruling.  The ruling from U.S.. District Court Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, came in a case brought in Florida federal court by Health Freedom Defense Fund, Inc. and frequent air travelers Ana Daza and Sarah Pope against the administration.  Judge Mizelle determined that the mandate violated the Administrative Procedure Act by being outside the scope of the CDC's authority, was "arbitrary" and "capricious" and not going through the required notice and comment period for federal rulemaking.

Never Ending Mask Mandates Bode Well for Republican Midterms.  The Biden Administration has decided to extend the federal public transportation mask mandate for another two weeks "to monitor [the] uptick in COVID-19 cases," says the AP's White House reporter.  Joe Biden couldn't be doing more to elect Republicans if he tried.  First things first:  The Biden Administration never should have issued that mandate in the first place, and certainly should have allowed that mandate to expire.  Vulnerable in-cycle Democrats — but I repeat myself — are going to be wondering what they did to anger the leader of their party so much that he decided to hurt them even more as they prepare to campaign this fall.  Second:  Let's retire the canard that the CDC "follows the science" when it makes such decisions.  That wasn't true from the beginning, and it's not true now.

COVID Vax Mandates Are Wreaking Havoc in the Military.  Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin has written 36 letters, starting in August 2020, to many agencies — FDA, CDC, NIH, NIAID, HHS, and DoD — about the mishandling of COVID-19, lack of transparency, adverse events, lack of early treatment, vaccine mandates, and health care freedom.  The DoD has not provided a single response.  Some of the other agencies have responded, although the majority of the responses received were considered incomplete.  The grossly inadequate reaction to Senator Johnson's legitimate oversight demonstrates a level of arrogance toward the American public that is unacceptable.  In particular, the lack of transparency from federal health agencies has eroded public confidence in the agencies, which will take years (and probably a complete restructuring) to repair.  Perhaps most concerning is the treatment of those in our military, who have been given an unconstitutional mandate to receive the experimental vaccine or face being ejected.  The fact that there is irrefutable evidence of vaccine adverse events for the military members getting the vaccine and expulsion for those who don't, poses a real threat to our nation's defense capabilities.

The Biden Medical State Still Won't Rule Out Vaccine Mandates for Travel.  Last week the Biden administration announced the mask mandate for federal air travel is being extended, again, until at least May 3, 2022.  The original mandate was set to expire in March.  "At CDC's recommendation, TSA will extend the Security Directives and Emergency Amendment requiring mask use on public transportation and transportation hubs for 15 days through May 3, 2022," the Transportation Security Administration announced. [...] During an interview with Meet the Press Sunday, White House Wuhan coronavirus coordinator Dr. Jha again embraced vaccine mandates for travel — refusing to rule out the possibility — while saying the administration will "assess" mandates moving forward.

Sars-Cov-2 Kills T-Cells, Just Like HIV.  This article was not written by a bunch of random scientists, but instead was written by people from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, including the infamous batwoman Shi Zheng-Li.  Just keep this in mind.  It was originally submitted in Sep 2021 and revised in January 2022, so it does not involve Omicron.  The article is saying the following:
  •   Many patients who had severe Sars-Cov-2 had "lymphopenia", that is, depletion of the all important immune T lymphocyte cells
  •   This depletion was caused by cellular suicide (apoptosis) of T cells after infection
  •   In experimental setups involving infecting laboratory cell lines of human T cells, Sars-Cov-2 virus was able to penetrate and infect T cells

Behind the masks.  Behind the masks these days are frightened children and nervous adults who are being carefully schooled to see the world as scary and dangerous — and coerced to take ineffective defensive measures to protect themselves.  Just recently I saw an older man with wide eyes and a masked face driving alone in his car.  Why?  Why would anyone choose to wear a fresh-air-constricting, sound-blocking face covering with no danger of any kind to threaten his immediate well-being?  The misinformation and fear surrounding the masks we have all been asked to wear is overwhelming.  The city of Philadelphia has once again mandated masks for indoor settings without any serious proof that they do any good for anyone.  How many other cities are likely to follow "in an abundance of caution" as the bureaucrats like to say?

Former MSM Reporter Loses Job Over Vax Mandate, Exposes the Media.  Former mainstream media reporter Allison Royal lost her job at a major local corporate media outlet for refusing to take the experimental COVID injection, and now she is exposing the truth about the establishment propaganda machine as only an insider can.  [Podcast]

The Media's Latest Attempt at Creating Another COVID Panic Is Beyond Pathetic.  Unlike liberal America, everyone has learned to live with COVID.  It's endemic.  It's going to be here forever.  Haven't had COVID, you're lucky.  You might get it; you have the rest of your life to catch 'rona.  Others who've had it should be prepared to get it again.  It is what it is, folks.  It's the latest edition to cold and flu season; COVID will just be the third person at the party.  It's seasonal.  Get over it.  Take your stupid mask off.  We have therapeutics and vaccines.  The era of lockdowns is over.  Philadelphia idiotically reinstated their indoor mask mandate.  NO ONE followed suit which shows you where everyone is now.  The upcoming 2022 elections have also played a part. [...] And these clowns wonder why everyone is sick of this circus.  It's damaged kids psychologically beyond repair.  The mental health crisis for adolescents is going to be a nationwide epidemic, but at least they wore masks, right?  Liberals' abuse of children in schools over COVID shouldn't shock anyone.

Fighting off viruses naturally is as simple as just breathing (which is why they want you to block respiration with a toxic mask).  Harvard University scientists have discovered that one of the simplest ways to protect your body against a viral infection is to just breathe — unmasked, of course.  The act of breathing, which is completely involuntary to begin with, generates immune responses that destroy invading pathogens.  Experiments using a "lung chip" that mimics the mechanical forces of breathing were found to kill influenza, for instance.  "This research demonstrates the importance of breathing motions for human lung function, including immune responses to infection, and shows that our Human Alveolus Chip can be used to model these responses in the deep portions of the lung, where infections are often more severe and lead to hospitalization and death," said study co-author Dr. Haiqing Bai from Harvard's Wyss Institute.  It turns out that the lungs contain alveoli, which is what draws in oxygen and exchanges it with carbon dioxide for exhale.  By simply breathing, your body oxygenates itself while expelling CO2 waste, which builds immunity and protects against disease.

Rare, severe liver damage reported in kids in U.S. and Europe.  Public health officials in Europe and the United States are investigating dozens of puzzling cases of severe hepatitis in young children.  Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver.  The cause is often a virus, but the viruses that commonly cause the illness — hepatitis A, B, C, D and E — have been ruled out in the cases in question, leaving doctors searching for the culprit.  In several cases, the illness was so severe that the children needed a liver transplant.  No deaths have been reported.  The World Health Organization on Friday said it was investigating 74 cases of severe acute hepatitis in children under age 13 in the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland.  Three cases were also reported in Spain, the WHO said.  It's not clear when symptoms for most of the children began, but of the first 10 identified in the U.K., nine got sick in March and one in January 2022, according to the WHO.

Masks fail their latest test.  The CDC just decided to continue the transportation mask mandate for another two weeks.  Dr. Bob Wachter, Chair of the Department of Medicine at UCSF, concurs with the CDC decision.  This doesn't prove that masks work.  Instead, it proves that the CDC, Wachter, and most mainstream scientists (who claim masks work) are incapable of differentiating solid science from a sloppy study.  There have been only two randomized trials to test whether public policy using masks to mitigate the spread of SARS-CoV-2 can reduce the spread.  The first one, in Denmark, failed to show that masks made a difference.  However, they were forced to re-write their paper to claim masks worked in order to get their study published.  This is known as "scientific corruption to match the political narrative."  But the second one, in Bangladesh, claimed that masks worked.  Nature called it a "rigorous study" and Stanford and Yale promoted it as definitive in a press release.  But was it really?  We challenged Yale Professor Jason Abaluck, the first author of that study, to defend their study.  To his credit (and our utter amazement), he agreed but with one condition:  we were only allowed one person to challenge him (because that's how science works of course).  We instantly agreed.  The discussion happened on April 3, 2022.  The result:  Abaluck failed.  Badly.  Very badly.  One of our experts who viewed the interview said that it was worse than just sloppy work.  He wrote, "This is bordering on fraud."  In short, the Bangladesh mask study again failed to prove that masks make a difference.  It was all statistical noise.

FDA and Pfizer Knew Covid Shot Caused Immunosuppression.  With another batch of 11,000 Pfizer documents, released April 1, 2022, old suspicions have gained fresh support.  As reported by "Rising" cohost Kim Iversen, the first bombshell revelation is that natural immunity works, and Pfizer has known it all along.  The clinical trial data showed there was no difference in outcomes between those with previous COVID infection and those who got the shot.  Neither group experienced severe infection.  Natural immunity was also statistically identical to the shot in terms of the risk of infection.  The second revelation is that side effects from the shots were more severe in younger people, aged 18 to 55, than those aged 55 and older.  (The risk of side effects also increased with additional doses, so the risk was higher after the second dose than the first.)

COVID 'Over' for Illegals at Border, Not Americans on Planes?  As the United States re-opened following a year of draconian lockdowns, states like California & New York, slow-walked the easing of their policies, and the Biden administration continued to push for a national vaccine mandate and left in place the mask requirement for those taking public transport.  In spite of all the data, the Biden administration announced that the nationwide mask mandate for public transit will be extended another two weeks.  On March 24, 2022, Airline CEOs said the mask mandate 'makes no sense'[.]

Depopulation Confirmed:  Ever since covid vaccines were introduced, U.S. population growth has plummeted.  For the past two years, we were told that the answer to the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) plandemic, and the thing that would "save lives," was everyone taking the Operation Warp Speed "vaccines."  It turns out, however, that population growth in the United States has reached an all-time low ever since the jabs were introduced.  In 2021, the year when most of the "fully vaccinated" got their jabs, the U.S. saw its population growth reach the lowest levels ever.  This is according to the latest data from the Census Bureau.  The year prior, 2020, was not much better, as the population growth rate in America has been declining for some time.  But things really ramped up in the depopulation department right after the "cure" for the Fauci Flu was introduced on a broad scale.  "U.S. growth didn't slowly fade away:  It slipped, and slipped, and then fell off a cliff," wrote Derek Thompson for The Atlantic.

Yale orchestra masks
Yale's Student Orchestra Wears Masks While Playing Instruments.  Yale's student orchestra appears to be continuing on with masking despite the university relaxing its campus wide mandate late last month.  Since the pandemic began, even Yale's brass and woodwind musicians have been seen wearing masks equipped with a hole while playing instruments.  Yale announced that it would be lifting its indoor mask mandate, which had been in place for just about two years, on March 10.  Calls to reimpose a mandate have grown as students and faculty point to rising case rates[.]


End the travel mask mandate now.  If you are a migrant arrested while illegally crossing the southern border, our nation's COVID emergency will be over May 23.  But if you borrowed money to pay for college, then the COVID emergency is still on at least through August and almost assuredly through Election Day.  And if you are a Democrat in Congress, the COVID emergency conveniently ended the weekend before President Joe Biden's State of the Union address.  Confusing?  Absolutely.  Is there some scientific evidence that can harmonize all these decisions?  Absolutely not.

Expect the left to exploit another emergency to avoid midterm defeat.  Those of us on the pro-freedom right logically expected the Biden administration to finally give up on the pandemic panic plan for electoral success.  The waning of the crisis made it plain that the emergency was long gone.  A clear majority of Americans say COVID is over:  just 9% think the pandemic is a "serious crisis," in a warning to lawmakers planning to bring back mask mandates and restrictions in response to the latest wave.  But then a funny thing happened as the rest of us resumed our normal lives.  While the Biden administration seemed to be all on board with putting pandemic panic theatre behind us, the people in charge were only going along so they could conveniently drop Title 42 and create a new crisis of illegal invaders, flooding in over the border.  So while we thought the emergency was over, they were just lying low to bring it back for the fall election season.  Even perennial camera hog Anthony Fauci did his part by staying out of the spotlight to avoid giving up the game.

Is the Fauci-Mengele comparison out of bounds?  Josef Mengele earned a medical degree in 1938, the same year he joined the Nazis' Waffen SS, where he volunteered for medical service.  At Nazi concentration camps, Mengele would decide which arrivals would live or die.  At Auschwitz, Mengele conducted agonizing and lethal experiments on Jewish and Gypsy twins, most of them children.  In his review of The Real Anthony Fauci, by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., economist Thomas DiLorenzo calls out Fauci's "Dr. Mengele-style 'experiments,'" which also took place on unwilling subjects.  Fauci's National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) provided funding for the Incarnation Children's Center (ICC) in New York as an outpatient clinic for HIV-positive children.  The city's Administration for Children's Services (ACS) offered up children under its care, nearly all of them African American or Hispanic, for secretive drug experimentation.  The BBC told the story in the 2004 documentary Guinea Pig Kids.

Fauci: 'You Use Lockdowns to Get People Vaccinated'.  National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday [4/13/2022] on MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports" that "you use lockdowns to get people vaccinated" while discussing the extreme COVID lockdowns in China. [...] Fauci said, "China has a number of problems, two of which are that the complete lockdown, which was their approach, a strictest lockdown you'd never be able to implement in the United States.  Although that prevents the spread of infection, I remember early on they were saying, and I think accurately, they were doing better than anyone else.  You use lockdowns to get people vaccinated so that when you open up, you won't have a surge of infections.  Because you're dealing with an immunologically naive population of the virus because they've not been exposed because of the lockdown."

Wuhan Collaborator Peter Daszak Demands Nearly $1 Trillion To Fund 'Pandemic Prevention' Efforts.  EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak — who used research grants administered by Anthony Fauci to collaborate with the Wuhan Institute of Virology — has demanded that President Joe Biden invest nearly $1 trillion into "pandemic prevention," at cost to the American taxpayer.  Daszak, born and educated in the United Kingdom, is infamous for his work with Chinese Communist Party collaborators at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and the subsequent cover-up of COVID-19's origins.  Now, the disgraced scientist is demanding the U.S. taxpayer shoulder the burden of protecting against his work manipulating "killer" pathogens by funding new "protections" to the tune of nearly one trillion dollars over the coming years.

This may be completely off-topic.  Or maybe not.
Why did nearly 100 people at this high school get 'extremely' rare malignant brain tumors?  A cancer survivor is vowing to untangle the twisted mystery of why almost 100 people associated with a New Jersey high school have developed "extremely" rare malignant brain tumors.  Al Lupiano is among the 94 former staff and students from Colonia High School in the Woodbridge Township School District who have been stricken by the devastating diagnoses in recent years.  "I will not rest until I have answers," Lupiano, 50, declared in an interview with NJ.com and the Star-Ledger on Thursday.  "I will uncover the truth."

Report: Pfizer's COVID "vaccine" responsible for hepatitis outbreak in children.  Liver inflammation (hepatitis) in children is on the rise in the United Kingdom, prompting an urgent investigation by the U.K. Health Security Agency (UKHSA).  Authorities say they have no idea why the disease is spreading among young people, but the elephant in the room that they are ignoring is Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) "vaccines," and particularly those made using mRNA (messenger RNA) technology.  Children as young as five are now being injected with these chemical poisons, which accumulate in the liver and cause, you guessed it:  hepatitis.  Keep in mind that hepatitis vaccines also cause diseases.  In Scotland, where people five years of age and older are also getting jabbed with mRNA, hepatitis is also on the rise.  According to reports, none of the cases currently under investigation involve any of the common viruses that cause hepatitis, further suggesting that COVID jabs are the culprit.

Dr. Peter McCullough says COVID vaccines have now killed more Americans than World War I.  Epidemiologist and cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough warned that more Americans were killed by the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine than some of the wars involving the United States.  McCullough made this claim while speaking at the COVID-19 Town Hall of OPTIMIST Bahamas on April 8.  OPTIMIST, which stands for Offering Preventing Therapeutic Interventional Medicines Increasing Safety and Trust, is an organization of doctors, other healthcare professionals, lawyers and concerned individuals who do not want countries to rely on the "vaccine only" strategy for dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.  According to its website, OPTIMIST does not want to be called "anti-vax."  The group added that its only goal is to educate the public about alternative preventative measures and treatment strategies for dealing with the coronavirus.  This includes the potential use of banned treatments and therapeutics like ivermectin.

Despite What You've Heard, Red States Handled COVID Much, Much Better Than Blue States.  One of the genius elements of the U.S. Constitution was its allowance for competing models of success and failure.  It did so by giving states great autonomy under the law while limiting what the federal government can do.  In the wake of a massive pandemic and a growing political divide among Americans, we're seeing that concept work its magic.  Two new reports that look at how the blue and red states and cities have performed during the COVID pandemic show it's no contest.  Those that hewed to the Red State model of lower taxes, less regulation, and respect for the rule of law thrived — while those that followed the "woke" blue-state model, built on socialist top-down control, forced equality, and divisive racial identity politics, suffered.  One of the new studies, by Phil Kerpen of The Committee to Unleash Prosperity, Casey Mulligan of the University of Chicago, and Stephen Moore of the Heritage Foundation, and published as a working paper by the National Bureau of Economic Research, ranked states by how they performed in three major areas during the pandemic: economics, education, and mortality.

The COVID Pandemic Lives on as Long COVID Ailment.  The Long COVID Alliance says that this chronic condition has impacted 9.4 million Americans... and counting.  As shown below many more millions of people are suffering with long COVID and getting little medical help.  Long COVID has become its own unique epidemic.  This is what a major published medical study in The Lancet said:  "Patients with Long COVID report prolonged, multisystem involvement and significant disability.  By seven months, many patients have not yet recovered (mainly from systemic and neurological/cognitive symptoms), have not returned to previous levels of work, and continue to experience significant symptom burden."  "The comprehensive assay of symptoms spans 10 organ systems (neuropsychiatric, systemic, reproductive, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, immunological, head-ear-eye-nose-throat, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, and dermatologic)."

Moderna Recalls 764,900 Doses of Covid "Vaccines".  Moderna said on Friday that it was recalling one Spikevax lot in Europe.  The batch contains 764,900 doses made by CDMO Rovi that were deployed across Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden between January 13 and January 14.  Moderna recalled the shots because of a "foreign body" found in one vial of the batch made at Rovi's site in Spain, the partners said in a release.  Many have already alerted the public that "foreign bodies" can be found in many of the "vaccines" being forced on the public right now. [...] Other than Reuters, this recall is hardly being mentioned by the mainstream media.  Moderna did not disclose what the "foreign body" found in the "one" vial was, but we have some idea.  We've seen several images from scientists and doctors who have looked at these "vaccines" under microscopes.  What was found was horrifying.

The Public's Business Ought to be Public.  Last November my organization, Empower Oversight, sued the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for failing to comply with Freedom of Information Act requests related to the agency's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Around half a dozen other entities have also been forced to go to court to compel the NIH to make pandemic documents public.  It's worth noting that this didn't need to happen.  Good lawyers charge hundreds of dollars an hour or more and hiring legal talent to pursue cases full time is not easy.  By forcing public interest groups to spend this money on litigation before complying with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, the NIH is locking out the vast majority of Americans from accessing federal records.  It takes financial resources to most effectively probe how our government operates.  Only after suing NIH did we receive any documents.  In March, we released hundreds of emails in a report about the NIH deleting the sequences of viruses from a database they operate.  These viruses are closely related to the COVID-19 virus.

Sinema: If the CDC is extending mask mandates in transit, why is Biden lifting Title 42?  Great question.  That's one reason why Politico noticed this morning that Democrats have remained awfully quiet on the CDC's new 15 Days To Stop Air Travelers From Feeling Comfort.  We'll get to that in a moment, but Kyrsten Sinema has decided not to stay quiet on this point at all.  If the pandemic still is enough of a public-health threat in super-controlled commercial airline environments, then why is the Biden administration about to lift pandemic controls at the border?

Black waitress sues NYC mayor over COVID shot mandate.  Don't comply!  A waitress who formerly worked at Yankee Stadium but lost her job because of the COVID shot mandate imposed by New York City mayor Eric Adams is now suing him and the city.  Her suit is also fueled because of Adams' arbitrary decision to cancel the mandate for wealthy athletes. [...] Alleyne refuses to get the COVID jab for religious reasons.  The instant she said this the edict should have been thrown out the window.  New York City however is now a fascist state, ruled by edict by one man, whichever Democrat happens to be in charge at the moment.  Adams thinks wealthy athletes and performers can't get the Wuhan flu, but poor waitresses can.  Therefore, only poor waitresses must get the jab or be prevented from working.

Yeah, "15 days to flatten the curve."  We know what that means.
CDC extending travel mask mandate 15 more days.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will extend its travel mask mandate for 15 more days despite protests from airlines.  President Biden's administration had previously extended the federal mask mandate to April 18 in early March.  Airline CEOS united in calling on Biden to end the mandate on March 24, but to no avail.  Biden's CDC is making the extension due to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases in the U.S.

The Editor says...
Cases.  Here we go again.  What does "cases" mean?  How many of those "cases" have no Covid symptoms?  How many require hospitalization?  How many of them are people who already had serious health problems?  The people who are really at risk are not likely to be on an airplane anyway.

The Doctor Who Exposed Fauci's Fallacies and Got Harassed and Fired from HHS for Telling the Truth.  Dr. Paul Elias Alexander was a well-credentialed, internationally known epidemiologist invited by Trump administration officials to be part of the COVID 19 response team at the White House in April of 2020.  He packed up his family, leaving a secure and prominent position in Canada to move to Washington, DC.  But then he criticized the public health mandates by Drs.  Fauci, Collins, and Birx, and showed them research that proved they were wrong about lockdowns, school closings, masking, and social distancing.  Following that, he was silenced, harassed, and then fired.

'Biggest fraud in a generation': The looting of the Covid relief plan known as PPP.  Many who participated in what prosecutors are calling the largest fraud in U.S. history — the theft of hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayer money intended to help those harmed by the coronavirus pandemic — couldn't resist purchasing luxury automobiles.  Also mansions, private jet flights and swanky vacations.  They came into their riches by participating in what experts say is the theft of as much as $80 billion — or about 10 percent — of the $800 billion handed out in a Covid relief plan known as the Paycheck Protection Program, or PPP.  That's on top of the $90 billion to $400 billion believed to have been stolen from the $900 billion Covid unemployment relief program — at least half taken by international fraudsters — as NBC News reported last year.  And another $80 billion potentially pilfered from a separate Covid disaster relief program.  The prevalence of Covid relief fraud has been known for some time, but the enormous scope and its disturbing implications are only now becoming clear.

The State and Local Leaders Who Aren't Ready to Give Up Pandemic Power.  While many government leaders sound the all clear message on COVID-19, dropping vaccine restrictions and mask mandates, some states and municipalities are clinging to the emergency powers that allowed them to govern people's behavior in unprecedented ways.  Citing the need to direct emergency funding and oversee hospitals, they have held on to their emergency orders even as many restaurants, shopping centers, and sports arenas are once again packed and lingering pandemic concerns have faded into the background of a more normal life.  Emergency orders at the state level are usually issued in response to temporary threats, especially weather disasters, and are wrapped up in a few days or weeks.  Soon after the new coronavirus exploded in March 2020, most governors issued broad executive orders.  Under these powers, governors banned crowds, closed businesses, and imposed mask and vaccination mandates.  They have also deferred to unelected public health officials in imposing restrictions.

The CDC has perfected their fear and intimidation techniques over the years.  [Scroll down]  If the CDC is telling us the truth, then why would they have to resort to intimidation techniques like these?  Two of our team members told me similar stories about CDC intimidation.  There was no overlap in the stories but in both cases, the people at the CDC were scared enough not to reveal anything.  Surely, the HHS Inspector General's office should know why intimidation techniques are necessary at the CDC, wouldn't they?  Maybe someone in Congress could ask them?  Do you want to know how they can get away with using such techniques?  It's simple:  the CDC is untouchable; they can do no wrong.  It's as simple as that.  If VAERS shows that over 400,000 Americans were killed by the vaccine and the CDC says that they haven't found a causal relationship, the vaccines are perfectly safe.

Ten Steps to Totalitarianism.  Does anybody still think totalitarianism can't happen here?  Ask yourself how many of these steps we've already galloped past. [... #10] Digital Identity Tracking:  What started with Obamacare and socialized medicine and quickly expanded with Democrat cities' experimentation with COVID-19 digital passports is set to go into overdrive with the introduction of central bank digital currencies.  If government-issued cyber-monies replace the relative anonymity of physical cash, then no purchase, donation, or investment can be free from the prying eyes of the State.  Combined with government control over health care and the imposition of mandatory digital IDs, the State will have created the perfect surveillance system.  When all human activity is monitored and social credit scores are the norm, personal choice disappears.

Idaho gov defends employer vaccine mandates as 'limited government' after having locked down his state.  On Sept. 23, 2020, three members of Christ Church were charged with a crime for not identifying themselves to the police when they were arrested for either not "social distancing" or not wearing masks ... outdoors.  No, this was not in Australia; it was in Moscow, Idaho.  A state which saw so many people from California flee to in order to find freedom, yet which Gov. Brad Little turned into a living nightmare for life, liberty, and property for a year.  Now, he is blocking bills prohibiting employer vaccine mandates by hiding under the principles of ... limited government?

Every House Democrat Voted Against Stopping the Government 'Monitoring And Prosecuting' Unvaccinated Americans.  All House Democrats on the Judiciary Committee voted against a proposed amendment to a domestic terrorism bill that would have prevented American intelligence and security agencies from receiving taxpayer funds to "monitor, analyze, investigate or prosecute" Americans unvaccinated against COVID-19.  Rep. Thomas Massie broke the news of the party line vote amidst a Judiciary Committee debate over a domestic terrorism bill via Twitter, revealing "Due to a troubling DHS bulletin, @RepAndyBiggsAZ offered an amendment to prevent the targeting of Americans due to their views on COVID vax."  "Every Dem. voted against his amdt!," the Kentucky Congressman continued.  The bill in question, H.R. 350 or the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021, authorizes various federal agencies including the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to use taxpayer-funded resources to "analyze and monitor domestic terrorist activity" and "take steps to prevent domestic terrorism."

Coming soon: the Great Vax crash.  Last week, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced a strategic partnership with biotechnology company Moderna to establish a state-of-the-art, mRNA vaccine manufacturing facility in Melbourne.  Unfortunately for the PM, enthusiasm for booster shots, like the immunity they purport to provide, appears to be waning.  Covid vaccination commander Lieutenant-General John Frewen explaining the phenomenon this week said, 'Some people are just a bit over the whole Covid thing'.  That's bad news not just for Moderna but for Australia taxpayers.  Not only has Health Minister Greg Hunt signed up for millions of shots under existing agreements with Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Novavax, but Australia will be locked into buying Moderna product and the company says it plans to produce up to 100 million mRNA vaccine doses annually against Covid-19, seasonal influenza, respiratory syncytial virus and other potential respiratory viruses.  Will Moderna be able to produce these vaccines?  Other than the Covid jabs, which only have provisional authorisation, it has never brought anything to market.  That hasn't deterred the government, but a more sceptical assessment is being made by some on Wall Street.

Politicians take note.  COVID is "over".  We're still waiting to find out if President Joe Biden will allow the mask mandate for public travel to expire on April 18th or if he will extend it yet again.  While he's making his decision, he might want to take a peek at a new Axios/Ipsos poll that was just released this week.  They asked Americans a variety of questions about how serious the threat from COVID was at this point and if the pandemic was still a major driving concern.  While it may come as a great surprise to some people, particularly inside the White House and among cable news hosts, people really aren't seeing this as a crisis requiring any extravagant government intervention at this point.  In fact, it sounds like a large majority of Americans crossing party lines and every other demographic are done with the pandemic.

The Illusion of Evidence-Based Medicine.  There is a big flaw in the logic of evidence-based medicine as the basis for the practice of medicine as we know it, a practice based on science; one that determines care down to the level of the individual patient.  This flaw is nestled in the heart and soul of evidence-based medicine, which (as we have seen over the last two years) is not free of politics.  It is naive to think that data and the process of licensure of new drugs is free from bias and conflicts of interest.  In fact, this couldn't be any farther from the truth.  The COVID-19 crisis of 2020 to 2022 has exposed for all to see how evidence based medicine has been corrupted by the governments, hospitalists, academia, big pharma, tech and social media.  They have leveraged the processes and rationale of evidence-based medicine to corrupt the entire medical enterprise.  Evidence based medicine depends on data.  For the most part, the data gathering and analysis process is conducted by and for the pharmaceutical industry, then reported by senior academics.

Know the Absolute Risk Reduction of the COVID-19 Vaccines! Part 1.  The absolute risk reduction of the COVID-19 Vaccines are:
  •   Pfizer-BioNTech — 0.84 %
  •   Moderna — 1.2 %
  •   Gamaleya (Sputnik) — 0.93 %,
  •   J&J — 1.2 %
  •   AstraZeneca — 1.3 %.
Intrigued? Read on. You probably have heard the numbers showing the vaccine efficacy of COVID-19 shots by now.
  •   Pfizer-BioNTech 95%
  •   Moderna 90%
  •   Gamaleya (Sputnik) 90%,
  •   J&J 67%
  •   AstraZeneca 67%.
Vaccine efficacy is another name for relative risk reduction (RRR).  The relative risk (RR) ratio of attack rates with and without the vaccine.  It is used in vaccine research to compare results between vaccine trials.  RRR sounds impressive because of the high numbers, which is why it is used in press releases to disseminate news agencies.  Medical representatives also tell physicians these numbers.  But if RRR is presented alone, it introduces a reporting bias, and RRR only means half of the story.  The FDA requires that RRR be reported together with the absolute risk reduction (ARR).  That's because the ARR is more relevant to the person getting the vaccine.

McCullough On Reverse Transcription.  We wrote previously about the Swedish study (University of Malmo) that concluded that Pfizer's mRNA injections do, in fact, alter human DNA — reverse transcription.  Unfortunately searching this site is a real headache.  I'll just say that, naturally, those conclusions in the Swedish Study have raised great interest and, from the medical establishment, a great deal of pushback about "anti-vaxxers" — which the Swedish scientists are not. [...] However, here's a video embedded in a tweet that features Dr. Peter McCullough discussing the implications.  The video is only two minutes long, but it's couched in readily understandable language.  And it is stunning in its implications.  What could be very interesting about this is that it seems these results are caused by the injections, rather than the virus itself.  [Tweet with video clip]

Here We Go Again:  Mask Mandates Are Coming Back.  Most elected Democrats seemed to have gotten the memo back in February that continued COVID restrictions were politically untenable moving forward, so a new normal was abruptly declared.  People who'd inveighed against Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin's sensible school masking policy in Virginia just days earlier suddenly decided the time had come to move toward similar or identical policies elsewhere. [...] Philly's COVID numbers aren't bad at all amid the current case bump, but the brain trust at city hall has decided to bring back the mandates.  The announcement came "on a day when hospitalizations in Pennsylvania are the lowest they've been since last July and deaths are the lowest they've been since last August," Allahpundit notes.

You Cannot Boost Your Way Through COVID.  That the mRNA-based COVID shot is not a real vaccine is evidenced by the sheer number of "boosters" required to keep COVID-19 at bay.  When the injections were released at the beginning of 2021, the promises flowed.  Getting the two-dose regimen was said to be 95% effective and would keep you safe from serious infection.  If everyone would just roll up their sleeves and get the jab, the pandemic would be over in no time.  By mid-July 2021, just over half the adult U.S. population had received the shot.  (Specifically, 56% had received one dose, and 49% were fully vaccinated with two doses.)  Well, before the year was over, reality started setting in, as effectiveness waned far more rapidly than anyone expected.  What's worse, the shot actually increased the infectivity of the Delta variant, and toward the latter part of 2021, hospitals around the world were starting to fill up with "vaccinated" COVID patients.  A preprint study, posted April 3, 2022, also reports high rates of infection with BA.1, BA.1.1 and BA.2 — variants of Omicron — among triple-jabbed health care workers.  In all, the incidence rate among the triple-jabbed with one of these variants was 22%, and only 10% remained asymptomatic.

Philadelphia reinstates mask mandate, encourages residents to snitch on non-compliant businesses.  The city of Philadelphia has reinstated a city-wide face mask mandate, public health officials announced, in an apparent attempt to quell the spread of COVID-19.  The city will become the first major U.S. city to turn back on dropping mask requirements, enacting a city-wide mandate from April 18 enforcing the wearing of face coverings in all indoor public spaces, "including schools and childcare settings, businesses, restaurants, and government buildings," an announcement from Philadelphia Public Health stated Monday [4/11/2022].  Masks were still required in healthcare settings, including in nursing homes, and on public transport in Philadelphia before the mandate was expanded. [...] The government requested that private citizens snitch on business owners who fail to implement the resurrected mandate by calling the local emergency services to lodge a complaint.

Girls are developing genital ulcers after getting the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.  Young girls, some as young as five years old, are developing genital ulcers due to Pfizer's Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) mRNA vaccine.  This is according to published peer-reviewed articles and data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the federal government's program for collecting reports about adverse events related to vaccinations.  One of the recently published medical journal articles talking about the post-vaccine genital ulcers was published this month in the Journal of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology.  The study, titled "Post COVID-19 Vaccination Vulvar Aphthous Ulcers:  An Unpopular Case Series," was conducted by three doctors in the pediatric and adolescent gynecology department at Mercy Children's Hospital in Kansas, Missouri.

Will Mandatory Covid Theater Ever End For College Students?  Universities across the country have increasingly rolled back Covid restrictions in recent weeks, giving many high school seniors hope their college experience will not be marred by the policies that, for more than two years, ruined that of their older siblings and peers.  Most commonly, this rollback has entailed quietly dropping policies pertaining to forced isolation and social asceticism, as well as lifting mask mandates in near lock-step with local and state political shifts on mask policy.  Some schools, such as the University of Iowa, largely operate as if it were 2019, without any broad requirements for masking, social distancing, regular Covid testing, or Covid vaccination.

Mask Hysteria Busts Back Into the Room Like the Kool-Aid Man.  As Greg Price notes, Philadelphia is averaging only two deaths a day from COVID-19.  The seven-day average for cases stands at just 170.  Is that a precipitous increase compared to say, last week?  No, it's not, as cases remain relatively flat and lower than they were in January and February.  Yet, the mask mandate is back anyway, forced on the population with no basis at all.  Where did the will to do this come from?  Look no further than the Biden administration, which had its lackeys out on Sunday preaching the gospel of indoor masking again.  [Video clip]

Philadelphia revives mask mandate as COVID-19 cases surge.  Philadelphians will have to wear masks inside public spaces again as the pandemic resurfaces in the city, where COVID-19 infections have spiked in recent weeks, city officials said Monday.  "Starting today, we're asking businesses to dig up those 'masks required' signs and start hanging them in your windows," Cheryl Bettigole, the city's health commissioner, said in a a news conference Monday afternoon.  "Beginning Monday, April 18, our health inspectors will begin enforcing the mask mandate again," she added, noting that the city is allowing a week's grace period to get the word out.

Not a single House Democrat supports freedom for unvaccinated Americans.  Every single House Democrat on the Judiciary Committee voted against a proposed amendment to a domestic terrorism bill that would have prevented deep state intelligence and security agencies from using American taxpayer dollars to "monitor, analyze, investigate or prosecute" Americans who refuse to get "vaccinated" for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).  Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) broke the news about the party line vote on Twitter, revealing that "Due to a troubling DHS bulletin, @RepAndyBiggsAZ offered an amendment to prevent the targeting of Americans due to their views on COVID vax."  "Every Dem. voted against his amdt!"  Massie lamented about the Democrats' flagrant disregard for Americans' constitutional rights.

7 COVID 'Conspiracy Theories' That Came True.  2021 was a great year for "conspiracy theorists."  For the past two years, Democratic politicians, the corporate media, and Big Tech have embarked on the largest censorship campaign in American history to shut down any speech that contradicted the guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Anthony Fauci.  In the first few months of the pandemic alone, Facebook censored more than 7 million posts with "Coronavirus misinformation." However, time tends to benefit the truth.  In the end, it turned out that the so-called "conspiracy theories" were right all along.  Now, the "conspiracy theorists" will go down as being on the right side of history.

Big Study Finds Non-Vaccinated are Healthier than Vaccinated.  In 2011, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services commissioned a study to be conducted by Harvard-Pilgrim Healthcare to determine how accurately the U.S. Government's Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System ("VAERS") had been keeping an accounting of the vaccine injuries and deaths the American people were suffering.  The resulting report opens with the words "vaccine adverse events are common."  The report concludes that "less than one percent (1%) of vaccine side-effects are ever reported".  This horrifying revelation was swiftly concealed and fully censored by the media.  This censorship continues to this day and is buttressed by heavy search-engine and social media censorship, Joy Garner, founder of The Control Group, wrote in the summary and guide to The Control Group Pilot Study.  "The vaccine marketing slogan "safe" has always depended upon the disproven adjective 'rare' in reference to side effects.  In the American Restatement (Second) of Torts 402A (comment k) vaccines are formally classified as 'unavoidably unsafe'.  But we are told vaccines are 'safe'.  Vaccines are not only unsafe, they are 'unavoidably' so.  And the injuries are common, a minimum of 100 times more common than the VAERS will report [...]"

NYC Council Bill to Demand That Mayor Rehire Unvaxxed City Workers.  The New York City Council will be introducing a resolution calling on Mayor Eric Adams to rehire city employees who were fired for noncompliance with the city's Covid-19 vaccination mandate.  The resolution would also demand that private businesses rehire employees who were fired for refusing to get a Covid shot.  A nonbinding bipartisan resolution is planned to be introduced on Thursday by City Council Minority Leader Joseph Borelli (R-South Shore), according to Staten Island's SILive Per the outlet, about 1,430 city employees were terminated on February 11 for failing to get vaccinated against Covid.  That number will most likely increase in the near future, as thousands of medical and religious exemption requests have not yet been processed.  According to Reuters, 64 percent of the terminated workers served in the city's education department.

The Absolute Risk Reduction of the Pfizer Biontech Booster Shot.  Pfizer Biontech announced that their COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose showed a high efficacy rate based on their Phase 3 Trial Data.  The Pfizer Biontech is incomplete because they only stated the Relative Risk.  It should also show the Absolute Risk Reduction that applies to an individual.  This article shows that only one person will benefit out of 48 people who will get the Pfizer Biontech booster.  This piece will show why that "vaccine effectiveness" is only suitable for five months.

Proof Covid Wasn't as Bad as It Appeared — How the Pandemic Was Fabricated:
  •   The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and individual states are now backtracking on their COVID death statistics, showing those of us who claimed deaths were being overcounted were right all along
  •   March 14, 2022, the CDC removed 72,277 COVID deaths from the tally, including 24% of those attributed to children under 18.  They claim a "coding logic error," a faulty algorithm, had "accidentally" counted deaths that weren't related to COVID, such as drowning deaths and drug overdoses
  •   The CDC used the false death statistics among children to push for COVID shots for 5- to 7-year-olds back in November 2021
  •   As of February 2, 2022, the U.S. Health and Human Services is no longer collecting data on hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19
  •   Deaths were initially exaggerated for political — both national and geopolitical — purposes, and now they're being downplayed for the same reason.  Democrats know they cannot win in the midterms unless they declare victory over COVID-19

Researchers: Nearly Half Of Accounts Tweeting About Coronavirus Are Likely Bots.  Nearly half of the Twitter accounts spreading messages on the social media platform about the coronavirus pandemic are likely bots, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University said Wednesday.  Researchers culled through more than 200 million tweets discussing the virus since January and found that about 45% were sent by accounts that behave more like computerized robots than humans.  It is too early to say conclusively which individuals or groups are behind the bot accounts, but researchers said the tweets appeared aimed at sowing division in America.  "We do know that it looks like it's a propaganda machine, and it definitely matches the Russian and Chinese playbooks, but it would take a tremendous amount of resources to substantiate that," said Kathleen Carley, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University who is conducting a study into bot-generated coronavirus activity on Twitter that has yet to be published.

The Debasement of our Professional and Political Classes.  [Scroll down]  Do we remember "the over 1,000 health professionals" who in 2020 signed a letter of conscience, assuring us that:  ...we wanted to present a narrative that prioritizes opposition to racism as vital to public health, including the epidemic response.  We believe that the way forward is not to suppress protests in the name of public health but to respond to protesters demands in the name of public health, thereby addressing multiple public health crises.  So, in "follow the science fashion" we were told not just that some violations of strict masking, quarantines, and lockdowns were more equal than others, but that flagrantly ignoring health mandates entirely was, in Orwellian fashion, actually good for the health of the exempt.  Do we remember the 27 Lancet "scientists" who signed the now infamous letter reassuring us the Wuhan lab played no role in the origins in COVID? Do we also recall that all but one of these progressive humanitarians failed to disclose that they themselves had connections with Wuhan?

20 questions they don't want to answer.  The problem I have is simple:  the data clearly shows that it is the CDC and other government agencies that are spreading misinformation, not me.  In order to resolve the conflict, I'm going to make the following offer in good faith:  I will happily stop spreading "misinformation" if you all would just take a few minutes to answer a few questions for me.  Fair enough?  Will you do that? [...] Here are my questions:
  [#1]   Why no debates?  Why won't any mainstream doctors or scientists or public health officials (or any other health authority for that matter) debate me or any of my colleagues in a live, recorded debate?  I even offer some people (members of the ACIP and VRBPAC committees) $1 million just to come to the debate table and it made no difference.  We can't even get any of them to propose any ground rules that they will accept!  For example, Professor Makary proposed debate terms (which weren't a debate) and then ignored me when I tried to accept them.
  [#2]   VAERS safety signals flashing red since January 2021.  How could the CDC and the FDA possibly miss all the safety signals in VAERS which have been flashing red since January 2021 for thousands of symptoms, some elevated by 1,000X or more?  Why did they ignore all attempts to bring this to their attention (if it wasn't already obvious).  They clearly must have known in January that the data coming in didn't match the claims in the clinical trials.  The profile of the VAERS data (chart of symptom vs. # reports) looks nothing like previous vaccines.
[Questions 3 through 20 omitted only for brevity.]

Sunday Talks, Fauci Warns of Potential Return of Indoor Mask Mandate.  Appearing on ABC's This Week to give his opinion on the current status of COVID-19, White House medical advisor Anthony Fauci warns the CDC may soon revert back to an indoor mask mandate.  This is additionally troublesome, because many people now define themselves by COVID-19.  There are many people who can only identify with other like-minded people fearful of COVID.  [Video clip]  There are [sic] a significant portion of the American public who worship at the altar of COVID theatrics.  For them getting booster shots, following the CDC orders and participating in the mask theatrics is a profoundly religious experience that defines who they are in the modern world of pandemic fear.  Observing the behaviors of mask promoters, is almost like watching a livestream of unstable political expression.  It truly is one of the most bizarre new realities.  Many of the Branch Covidians become mentally and emotionally unstable when they experience contact with a non-mask-wearing person.

Australia's Sunday Footy Show hosts link on-field heart issues to vaccine booster shots.  [Video clip only.]

Proof that blue states DID fail their people during pandemic.  States that imposed the harshest lockdowns had the most devastating impact on the public, the most wide-ranging study into Covid restrictions in the US to date has found.  New York, California, New Jersey and Illinois were panned for their pandemic performance after bringing in draconian measures to shut their citizens in their homes.  Those states' Democrat Governors' policies caused high death rates, ruined children's education and destroyed businesses due to the severe curbs on freedom, researchers found as they slapped them with an F-grade.

Fauci says it's now up to Americans to assess their own COVID-19 risk.  Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday [4/10/2022] appeared to throw in the towel on more government restrictions over COVID-19 — insisting it's now up to Americans to make their own medical risk assessments.  "This is not going to be eradicated, and it's not going to be eliminated," Fauci told ABC's "This Week."  "And what's going to happen is that we're going to see that each individual is going to have to make their calculation of the amount of risk that they want to take."  The White House chief medical adviser said Americans will have to consider factors such as their age, vaccination status and whether they live with vulnerable individuals when it comes to coronavirus precautions.

There are some things you can question and some things you can't.  In today's America, there are some things one can question... and some things one cannot.  You can question the existence of God. [...] You can question your own gender, but you can't question the LGBTQ agenda in any way, shape or form — for any reason.  Nor can you question the process or results of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, in any way, whether on a national, state, or local level.  If you do, you will promptly be cancelled, disappeared, or otherized.  Seriously questioning how COVID-19 was loosed upon the globe is also strictly verboten.  As is asking questions about the Biden family's ties to — and relations with — China or Ukraine.  In fact, you can't ask a pertinent question of Biden at all.

The History of Population Control is Important for Understanding COVID-19.  Reducing global population has been a consistent goal of the ruling class for centuries.  While many support the abstract idea of population control, no one wants to volunteer to be the ones who are culled.  The business of population control has hence been a very messy subject.  When the COVID vaccine program began, I — and likely many others — suspected the COVID vaccines would have an "unexpected" side effect of reducing fertility.  Early in their development, Mike Yeadon (and others) at great personal risk publicly warned regulators of a clear fertility danger inherent to the vaccine (found in section IX of their petition).  Subsequent regulatory document leaks from the European FDA revealed Pfizer exempted themselves from testing the key areas of concern (infertility, autoimmunity and cancer) in animals.  This highly unusual moved further suggested serious problems existed in these three areas (as you can't find something if you don't test for it).

And Just Like That, Doctors Have Their Autonomy Back.  [M]ost of what medical students learn early in medical school will be obsolete before they graduate, the same for residents from the beginning to the end of their residency program.  This is why physicians learn on the job, gaining wisdom from their observations and experiences, changing their practices accordingly.  Hence the popularity of off-label treatments, reflecting new knowledge gained long after the on-label treatment was developed, or FDA approved.  This is how physicians remain on the cutting edge, by innovating and growing in a thoughtful and scientific way, not simply doctors playing cowboy and experimenting on their patients.  The COVID pandemic brought this to light.  Diagnostic and therapeutic protocols were developed by the behemoth medical and government bureaucracies at the pace one would expect from such organizations.  Where are we on early outpatient treatment, designed to keep early and mild cases out of the hospital and ICU, where the risk of death and disability rises dramatically?  COVID has been with us for over two years now and there are no officially sanctioned early treatment protocols.

COVID Legislative News.  There has been some good news on the legislative front in the past week.  But unfortunately, there are still a number of bills and regulatory policies pending that could change the very nature of a pandemic response worldwide.  Policy that would allow public health to easily gain control of government during a bio-threat emergency.  Policy that might allow public health to be weaponized for other purposes.  What happens when emergency powers are written so that they can be granted for a severe flu season?  Could we expect lock downs, masks, mandatory vaccination, censorship, propaganda and social distancing as seasonal events?  What happens when there is civil unrest and these measures are used to control dissent.  Who will be in control of such policies?  Will these decisions be made at the Federal level, the European Union, the UN and/or the World Health Organization (WHO)?

Rand Paul:  Did Nancy Pelosi Receive Monoclonal Antibodies?  Friday, during an appearance on FNC's "Hannity," Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) suggested there was a possibility of a double standard for Democratic politicians and the public for receiving monoclonal antibodies.  The Kentucky Republican U.S. Senator asked if recently COVID-diagnosed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had received those therapies while they were restricted for those in the general public.

COVID, Gender, Climate, and the Collapse of Science.  [Scroll down]  Having thus unmoored ourselves from the lines of ordinary rational discourse, the world was ready to react to a pandemic of middling dimensions, by comparison to past such events, with brobdingnagian overreaction.  We let a career NIH bureaucrat who had been an expert in infectious disease, but not epidemiology, become the de facto czar of our response to the epidemic.  The NIH largely limited itself to vaccine research to the disregard of therapeutics.  The CDC, which should have monitored the epidemiological response to the disease, was limited to issuing contradictory or inaccurate declarations.  The response pattern that had been established for climate change and gender transformation was again employed to deal with the epidemic.  In retrospect it appears that the government, or major parts of it, saw the new disease as an opportunity to control the populace rather than minister to it.  The implications of our response to the pandemic on society, education, economics, and all the sundry activities of daily life were ignored.  Everything was subordinated to masks, lockdowns, and social isolation — all of which proved futile.  One can understand a misdirected approach to a new disease that took us unawares, but to persist in error after the errors were clearly delineated was more than foolishness:  it was an attempt to impose government control which could be used later for other centralized actions, or both.

I Learn Something New Every Day.  [Scroll down]  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tested positive two days after she closely mingled with, hugged and kissed President Biden.  Her spokesperson said she was fully vaccinated and boosted and will quarantine as she encouraged "everyone to get vaccinated, boosted and test regularly."  While she stood close to the President as they celebrated the signing of an executive order to remedy the "glitch" in Obamacare, and she hugged and kissed him, the White House insists she and the president were not in "close contact" something the CDC indicates is sustained unmasked contact within six feet for more than 15 minutes. [...] Using the CDC guideline on what constitutes "close contact" church services were banned, and businesses, schools, and restaurants were shuttered.  This would not be the first time Speaker Pelosi violated CDC guidelines.  Even as she required all House members to wear masks on the floor of the House (and fined those who disobeyed) she ignored the mask rules then in place to get her hair done.  The rule rescinding masking in the House was lifted at the end of February, in time for the State of the Union address.

In pursuit of zero COVID, China starves its citizens.  For some time now, China has presented itself as a rapidly ascending nation that is completely in charge of its destiny and one that escaped COVID with little harm.  However, that appearance may be illusory and China may be more unstable than the image it promotes to the world.  China, with a bit of help from Fauci's NIH, gave the world the gift of COVID.  Even if it didn't create the virus in a Wuhan lab (although I believe it did), China's policy was to hide the virus, and then, even as it locked down its own people, it put Chinese citizens on airplanes to spread the virus throughout the world.  Whether this was simply because the communist Chinese government doesn't care about the outside world or because it had a nefarious plan, the effect was the same:  A pandemic began that had crippling effects on the world at large.

RE: Malone v.  The New York Times Company et al.  [Text of a demand letter from Dr. Malone's attorney.]

School Guards Assaulted, Framed Single Father For Refusing To Mask 7-Year-Old Son.  Surveillance footage obtained by the Gateway Pundit confirms Denver Public Security Guards employed with Lowry Elementary School in Denver, Colorado assaulted the single father of a 7-year-old boy for refusing to send his son to school in a mask.  As the Gateway Pundit reported, Lowry Elementary school officials persistently harassed 42-year old Anthony Chavez for standing by his decision to send his son Chase to school unmasked after the state's governor rescinded the mask mandate for indoor venues.

I thought that game was over.
Hospital Refuses to Give 9-Year-Old Boy Life Saving Kidney Transplant Because Father is Unvaccinated.  A hospital in Cleveland is refusing to a provide a 9-year-old boy a life-saving kidney transplant because his father hasn't taken the COVID-19 vaccine.  Yes, really.  Dane Donaldson was found to be a perfect donor match for his son Tanner back in 2018 before the pandemic began.  Knowing that transplanted kidneys from live donors only last for about 20 years, the family decided to delay the procedure.  Now the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital is refusing to perform the operation because the father is unjabbed.

Peter Daszak was hand-picked by the Chinese Communist Party to be a covid investigator.  Remember when EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak was called in by the World Health Organization (WHO) to help lead an "investigation" into the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19)?  It turns out that this decision was made by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).  A former staffer from the group revealed that Daszak was hand-picked by the CCP to lead the investigation because the communist regime knows that he is aligned with their interests rather than the interests of public health.  After all, Daszak has long been tied to communist China as one of its allies and assets.  Daszak led numerous conferences sponsored by various CCP-run "scientific" organizations, and has also co-authored studies funded by the Chinese government.  Daszak also participated in conferences run by communist China's state-run propaganda outlets.  Evidence of this was seen when Daszak took to defending the CCP during the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) plandemic, claiming that many people "misunderstand the Chinese government" and its intentions.

Fauci Fears 2022 Republican Takeover of Congress.  If you follow The Daily Bell or other independent news outlets that tell the truth, you are already likely familiar with the COVID crimes against humanity that Anthony Fauci facilitated.  Leveraging his role as the leading "public health" authority (while raking in the highest salary of any federal employee), Warlord Fauci:
  •   funneled cash into dangerous gain-of-function research in a CCP-controlled Wuhan bioweapons lab
  •   relentlessly promoted mRNA gene therapies deceptively marketed as "vaccines and the cover-up of their side effects.
  •   orchestrated media campaigns to discredit and smear his political opponents.
... among many more improprieties.
Fauci, of course, is likewise intimately familiar with his moral atrocities — and he likely knows that independent journalists have only scratched the surface of his criminality.  Further investigation would almost certainly uncover greater and more numerous offenses.

Babies Struggle to Understand "Basic Facial Expressions" as a Result of Adults Wearing Masks.  Adults wearing masks as a result of COVID lockdown rules has created a generation of babies who struggle to understand "basic facial expressions" and have stunted speech and language development.  The conclusion os based on an Ofsted report that warns of serious delays in learning caused by lockdown restrictions.  "Children turning two years old will have been surrounded by adults wearing masks for their whole lives and have therefore been unable to see lip movements or mouth shapes as regularly," states the report.  Despite a highly contentious debate over the effectiveness of face masks, mothers giving birth were forced to wear face coverings in NHS hospitals.

Mask Wearing Has Left a Generation of Toddlers Struggling With Speech and Social Skills.  Lockdown restrictions, including adults wearing face masks, has left a generation of babies and toddlers struggling with speech and social skills, according to an official report.  Inspectors working for Ofsted found that infants being surrounded by adults wearing face masks for significant periods of time over the last two years has damaged their learning and communication abilities.  Those turning two "will have been surrounded by adults wearing masks for their whole lives and have therefore been unable to see lip movements or mouth shapes as regularly," the report found.  "Some providers have reported that delays to children's speech and language development have led to them not socialising with other children as readily as they would have expected previously," it added.

833 Athlete Cardiac Arrests and Serious Issues, 540 Dead, Following Covid Injection.  A total of 15 players were unable to finish the Miami Open 2022 tennis tournament, including the male and female favourites.  All of the players must be "fully vaccinated" to compete, the Liberty Daily wrote, "just as we've noted for several months, most major sports have been hit with 'inexplicable' medical conditions popping up in young and otherwise healthy athletes, including our report that three cyclists fell in March alone."  The so-called health professionals running the Covid "vaccine" programs around the world keep repeating that "the Covid vaccine is a normal vaccine and it is safe and effective."  But as of the end of last month, Good Sciencing has recorded 833 athletes, worldwide, who have had cardiac arrests or other serious issues, with 540 dead, post-Covid injection.

Shanghai Now Under Severe Covid Lockdown.  While world attention is riveted on Ukraine, another great crisis is building in the People's Republic of China.  For more than a week, the entire city of Shanghai has been on total lockdown in response to an out-of-control Covid/Omicron outbreak that has engulfed China's (and the world's) largest city.  It all began in early March, when locally transmitted cases of the Omicron variant, apparently traceable to a huge outbreak in Hong Kong, began cropping up all over Shanghai.  Because of the city's crucial role in the Chinese and world economy, Chinese authorities were reluctant to impose on Shanghai what has been imposed in the past on other, lesser Chinese cities such as Wuhan and Xi'an — namely, a total lockdown.  Individual neighborhoods and residential areas across Shanghai were locked down aggressively in response to local cases, but the city remained largely open for business.  But by the end of March, it was apparent that the highly contagious Omicron variant was not to be denied.

Shannon Urquhart: 52-year-old Australia woman suffers tremors, neurological issues after two mRNA injections, doctors blame alcohol withdrawal.  A 52-year-old self-employed health and beauty therapist is adjusting to her new life of unpredictability and navigating her way through a dismissive medical system.  Ms. Shannon Lee Urquhart, like many vaxx-injured individuals, did not post much publicly on social media about her condition until recently.  The first subtle hint that something wasn't right came on December 10.

Why Are So Many Democrats Coming Down With COVID?  My colleague Matt Margolis covered the news that Vice President Kamala Harris's communications director tested positive for COVID after attending a bill-signing ceremony.  And PJ Media's Cameron Arcand reports that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi also tested positive after attending the same event.  But the real super-spreader event occurred on Saturday night [4/2/2022] at the annual Gridiron Dinner as more than a dozen politicians and media types have all reported contracting the coronavirus.  Among them:  Reps.  Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Joaquin Castro (D-Texas.); Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo; and Attorney General Merrick Garland.  Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser announced she tested positive.  Also testing positive:  Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont; Rochester, N.Y., Mayor Malik Evans; Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan; Austin Mayor Steve Adler; and Arizona Democrat Rep. Tom O'Halleran.  Are Republicans suddenly — dare I say it — immune?

Will a fourth COVID shot save you?  Pfizer sold an estimated $32 billion's worth of COVID vaccines in 2021.  Much smaller Moderna sold around $17.7 billion's worth of COVID vaccines in 2021.  The stocks of both companies are down from highs late last year, with Moderna's performing particularly poorly, shedding around 66% of its value since it peaked in August of last year.  The COVID-19 vaccines accounted for almost all of Moderna's value, and a large percentage of Pfizer's, so both companies have a vested interest in continuing to get vaccines into the arms of patients.  However, vaccination is not the only way in which one can protect himself from COVID or even respond to the disease.  A variety of monoclonal antibody treatments, which were proven to be an effective treatment of the symptoms of COVID, had their Emergency Use Authorization revoked earlier this year.  The one-track-mind medical apparatus continues to place all its eggs in the vaccine basket — that is, in vaccines that have vastly underperformed initial promises.  One should always consult with a medical professional before deciding to get vaccinated.  However, there are plenty of other ways Americans can boost their immune health without vaccination, through better diet, exercise, and ensuring that they are not deficient in vitamins.

Psaki: Pelosi kissing Biden on cheek does not meet CDC's 'bar' of 'close contact' for COVID transmission.  White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has tested positive for the coronavirus, kissing President Biden on the cheek and holding his hand did not meet the White House's definition of "close contact."  "How can you guys say that President Biden was not a close contact with speaker Pelosi when there's video of the speaker kissing him?" Fox News' Peter Doocy asked Psaki on Thursday [4/7/2022].  "Their definition of it is 15 minutes of contact within a set period of time, within six feet," Psaki responded, referring to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention definition of "close contact."  "It did not meet that bar."

The Editor says...
The Important People each have their own arbitrary definition of "close contact" and "social distancing."  Their malleable and flexible standards show us that they never cared about masks and six-foot spacing.  Those rules were for somebody else.

Fauci's Colleague Offered to Secretly Erase a COVID-19 Paper Containing Data Hidden By China.  Kristian Andersen — an Anthony Fauci confidant who has received research grants worth millions from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director — reportedly offered to secretly delete a research paper exposing the U.S. National Institutes of Health's erasure of a database containing information relevant to the origins of COVID-19.  Andersen, a virologist at the Scripps Research Institute, made the suggestion during a Zoom call with Fauci himself, alongside former National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins, and the paper's author Jesse D. Bloom.  Bloom, an evolutionary biologist, had recovered a number of early SARS-CoV-2 genomic sequences, which were erased by the NIH at the request of Chinese Communist Party researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Vaccines are traditionally expected to be effective for years, if not forever.  This stuff doesn't come with any such expectations.
Second COVID booster shot boosts infection protection for just a few weeks: study.  A fourth shot of the Pfizer COVID vaccine increased protection against viral infection for only four to seven weeks, according to a massive study published Tuesday [4/5/2022].  The study included 1.25 million people age 60 and over in Israel who received their fourth dose between January and March.  Israel only uses the Pfizer vaccine.

Dr. Fauci Says Covid Lockdowns Could be Utilized "in a Positive Way".  Dr. Fauci over the weekend had a one-on-one interview with CBS 2 New York to discuss the so-called 'risk' of easing Covid restrictions.  Fauci told CBS's Jessica Moore that lockdowns "could be utilized in a positive way."  Fauci also said forced masking will be back if Covid cases rise again.  This is why someone like Fauci, who's an unelected bureaucrat, should never have this much power.

Fully Vaxxed And Boosted Adam Schiff Tests Positive For Covid-19.  Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff (CA) on Tuesday announced he tested positive for Covid-19.  The 61-year-old lawmaker is fully vaccinated and boosted.  "This evening, I unfortunately tested positive for COVID-19," Schiff said.  "I'm feeling fine, and grateful to be vaccinated and boosted.  In the coming days, I will quarantine and follow CDC guidelines."

German guy gets 90 COVID shots to sell fake vax cards.  When various state and municipal governments started giving away money and other incentives for the vaccine-hesitant to get their shots, I raised what seemed to be an obvious question.  What would happen if desperate people, particularly the homeless, began showing up at multiple pods and getting multiple vaccinations just to cash in on the money or other rewards?  Had anyone actually studied what would happen to patients who received far more than the CDC recommended number of injections at the prescribed intervals?  We may be about to find out.  One guy in Germany was arrested after reportedly going for as many as 90 injections.  He wasn't trying to be the most immune person on the planet, however.  He was selling off the vaccination cards he was given after altering them so his customers could put in their own names.

A concerned mother who questioned NY Mayor Adams on toddler mask mandate fired from city job.  A few days ago the New York Post reported that a New York City mom, Daniela Jampel, who works for the New York City Law Department was fired from her job mere hours after she questioned Mayor Eric Adams about his decision not to unmask toddlers.  Jampel worked for the law department for years as assistant corporation counsel.  It all began when Jampel attended a press conference in the City Hall building in Lower Manhattan. [...] Jampel did not personally or physically attack the mayor, and neither did she use foul language.  She did not interrupt the Mayor's remarks.  She spoke only when questions were allowed.  Any mother overcome with concern for the wellbeing of their child will understandably be emotional and that Jampel was.  She did not profit in any way owing to her office, she did not misuse or abuse her power, and she did not reveal any confidential information.  All she did is question authority.

My Nightmare Experience With Cruel, Fascistic Covid Policies at a California Hospital.  I write the following to share my deplorable experiences at Kaweah Delta Medical Center, a hospital in Visalia, Calif., and because I'm convinced most Americans have no clue of the fascistic, cruel, and inhumane policies still being enacted in the name of "Covid-19."  My elderly mother is and has been immensely sick for quite some time.  She is also suffering from dementia, especially when she gets hospitalized.  That said, I am intentionally being vague concerning her condition, as I wouldn't want the hospital to figure out who she is and possibly "reprimand" her due to this article.  Yes, I think some of the workers there are actually capable of that.  On the other hand, I'm not overly concerned that they'll be able to identify me.  All one needs to do is look at the terrible reviews that hospital gets, most of them from people who had the very same experiences I'm about to relate, to realize that these incidents are a dime a dozen.

The CDC finds a depression epidemic among teens — that it created.  A new Centers for Disease Control study reveals how badly teens have suffered from COVID policies — that the CDC itself pushed.  Many of us have lamented the terrible damage done to younger children by school closures and mask mandates — years of learning loss that may never be made up.  Now we learn that the isolation and anxiety that accompanied school shutdowns have taken a heavy toll on adolescents.  The CDC found that more than a third of US high-school students reported poor mental health during the pandemic.

CDC to 'revamp' department as it faces eroding public trust over COVID.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Monday it plans to undergo a month-long "revamp" as it faces a credibility crisis more than two years after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a report.  CDC Director Rochelle Walensky told her staff in an email reviewed by the Washington Post that "it is time to step back and strategically position CDC to support the future of public health."  "Over the past year, I have heard from many of you that you would like to see CDC build on its rich history and modernize for the world around us," Walensky wrote.  "I am grateful for your efforts to lean into the hard work of transforming CDC for the better.  I look forward to our collective efforts to position CDC, and the public health community, for greatest success in the future."  Walensky added that she had hired an outside leader for the review who will look at the CDC's "structure, systems, and processes."

The CDC Massively Violates Its 'Pledge' To Americans — Why Should Anyone Trust It Now?  One of the five items on the CDC's "Pledge to the American People" is that it will "base all public health decisions on the highest quality scientific data that is derived openly and objectively."  Can anyone honestly say that it has lived up to this promise during the COVID outbreak?  Three recent events should make it abundantly clear that the answer is no.  First, the CDC has been caught hiding vast amounts of scientific data regarding COVID.  The New York Times, of all places, reported in late February that "For more than a year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has collected data on hospitalizations for COVID-19 in the United States and broken it down by age, race and vaccination status.  But it has not made most of the information public."  Why?  Because the data, especially data on the efficacy of vaccines, "might be misinterpreted."  Dr. Nicole Saphier, a physician at Memorial Sloan Kettering, tweeted in reaction to the news that:  "The CDC's response when questioned about their withholding of COVID data and lack of transparency is essentially 'we don't trust you to be able to understand the truth.'  The condescension is palpable."

German Man Has 90 Vax Shots to Sell Coveted 'Passports'.  A 60-year-old man allegedly had himself vaccinated against COVID-19 dozens of times in Germany in order to sell forged vaccination cards with real vaccine batch numbers to people not wanting to get vaccinated themselves.  The man from the eastern Germany city of Magdeburg, whose name was not released in line with German privacy rules, is said to have received up to 90 shots against COVID-19 at vaccination centers in the eastern state of Saxony for months until criminal police caught him this month, the German news agency dpa reported Sunday.  The suspect was not detained but is under investigation for unauthorized issuance of vaccination cards and document forgery, dpa reported.

Lee Mallinson: 51-year-old British swimming coach was "waiting for internet signal to get stronger" after Pfizer booster shot, dead four months later.  51-year-old swimming coach is dead, after mocking the non-vaccinated with regurgitated, tired aspersions.  Mr. Lee Mallinson was head swimming coach at the Reading Swimming Club. [...] Mr. Mallinson was a COVID fanatic.  He played along with every narrative, and peppered his social media profiles with free advertising for the pharmaceutical industry.  He was one of the early cheerleaders for the Novavax insect virus vector injection.

Numerous Health Problems More Likely Due to COVID-19 Vaccines Than Coincidence:  VAERS Data Analysis.  Various health problems reported by people after receiving one of the COVID-19 vaccine shots are more likely caused by the vaccines than being merely coincidental, according to an analysis of data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).  VAERS has been flooded with more than a million reports of various health problems and more than 21,000 death reports since the introduction of the vaccines in late 2020. Some experts and public officials have downplayed the significance of the reports, noting that just because a health problem occurs after getting the shot, it doesn't mean it was caused by it.  A deeper analysis of the data, however, indicates that many of the adverse effects are more than just a coincidence, according to Jessica Rose, a computational biologist who's been studying the data for at least nine months.  "The safety signals being thrown off in VAERS now are off the charts across the board," she told The Epoch Times.

Do you realise how much you have been manipulated through Government Propaganda over the past Two Years?  [Scroll down]  Forced mask wearing (which has been proven time and time again to have absolutely no value in preventing the spread of infection) helps to enforce the sense of isolation and is another technique favoured by torturers and those determined to obtain control over individuals.  We all learn a great deal of information and comfort from looking at the faces around us and when masks are worn we are mentally and spiritually weakened.  A paper in the Journal of Neonatal Nursing showed how much babies suffer when deprived of the chance to see their mother's face.  Brain growth in infants is much affected by the baby's relationship with people it sees. [...] Masks and social distancing and lockdowns were introduced to create fear and to remind us that we had to do what we were told to do.  The masks, in particular, were always all about teaching us to be compliant.

Fauci's United Front Is Collapsing.  Lockdowns contradicted not only a century of public-health practice but even WHO guidelines.  Even on March 2, 2020, 850 scientists signed a letter to the White House warning against lockdowns, closures, and travel restrictions.  Within days, everything changed.  There were hints of extreme measures in the CDC pandemic planning manuals since 2006 but the idea was hardly orthodoxy in the profession.  It's also true that there were elite scientists who longed for the chance to try out the new theory of virus suppression.  But how did Fauci and Birx, to say nothing of Jared Kushner, become converts of the idea to the point that they were able to convince Trump to betray everything he believed in?  This is quite probably where the lab-leak theory comes in.  It's not so much about whether the virus was an accidental or even deliberate leak that matters so much as whether Fauci, Francis Collins, and Jeremy Farrrar of the UK's Wellcome Trust believed it was possible or even likely.  In that case, we have our motive.  Did they deploy the chaos of lockdowns as a genuine if wildly misguided attempt to suppress the virus as a way of avoiding culpability?  Or perhaps it was deployed as a kind of smokescreen to distract from a closer examination of the Wuhan's lab's funding sources?

NIH Working to Keep Taxpayers in the Dark by Stalling on Fauci Documents:  Transparency Advocate.  The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is attempting to keep money spent on things like Dr. Anthony Fauci's salary, the highest-paid U.S. government employee, hidden from members of the public, according to a transparency advocate.  "There is a multi-layered strategy, funded by taxpayers, to keep taxpayers in the dark about how NIH is spending taxpayer money," Adam Andrzejewski, CEO and founder of OpenTheBooks.com, told Epoch TV's "American Thought Leaders."  Andrzejewski's watchdog group discovered how much Fauci was getting paid and that he received a permanent pay bump in the early 2000s in part to prevent him from leaving the government.  In an effort to learn more about the top doctor, the group filed a Freedom of Information Act request on Jan. 28, 2021, asking for Fauci's job description, disclosure documents, and other papers.

5 bombshell videos on COVID-19.  A while back, I published a piece outlining Five Books You Must Read on COVID-19.  If you don't have time to read a book — or prefer podcast and video content — here are five videos that offer invaluable insights into the COVID issue. [...] [#1] The Truth Shall Set You Free — John MacArthur Sermon:  Preaching in the thick of the pandemic, John MacArthur of Grace Community Church proclaimed this timeless sermon.  He unmasks human nature and our tendency to worship the state in place of God.  Preaching from John 8, MacArthur uses Huxley's Brave New World and Orwell's 1984 as illustrations of what happens when we place our hope in worldly leaders.  [Video clip]

A World Gone Mad.  Governments everywhere, including here in the USA, have abandoned God, good government, law and order, common sense, and traditional Judeo-Christian values.  They have jumped in with both feet into the dark and shadow without bothering to look back at seeing what they have already wrought. [...] We can't leave out the absurdities of the so-called COVID pandemic.  The pandemic that has a better than 99% survival rate, with a government that did more to harm the public than the actual disease.  Wear a mask, don't wear a mask, close your business, mandate an experimental vaccine and find only those who took the vax are getting COVID.  Give shots to children with a 99.995% chance of survival, stay six feet from anyone in line at the airport, and then jam them all into the airplane.

RFK Jr.  Discusses Fauci, Vaccines and Big Pharma's Power.  [Video clip only.]

America is suffering from a gigantic loss of trust.  [Scroll down]  And for the past two years, we have been the victims of a totalitarian experiment:  the COVID emergency.  If, three years ago, someone had predicted that a two-week emergency declaration to "flatten the curve" would stretch into two full years of tyrannical government oppression, he would have been laughed out of town.  Yet it happened.  The mechanism used to gain obedience was to induce fear.  Fear works:  many people still wander around wearing placebo masks.  People have been jailed, businesses ruined, careers destroyed, life savings obliterated, children abused, and many lives lost from drug addiction, suicides and compulsory inoculation with an experimental "vaccine."  Our human skill margins have been depleted; our trust has been eroded.  All this because some unethical bureaucrats in the government gave unscrupulous politicians the excuse to impose flat-out tyranny in response to a medical emergency.  Progressives applaud.  Let's make this situation permanent, they say.

For what it's worth...
Top 7 ways to die from "COVID" without even catching the virus.  Who would have thought it's more dangerous to get vaccinated for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) than to actually catch the virus?  Who would have thought that it's more dangerous to take the medications the hospitals recommend for COVID-19 than to just let your immune system naturally beat the virus?  Some folks are doubting that COVID-19 is even a real virus, since independent scientists can't even seem to isolate SARS-CoV-2 in a laboratory.  Maybe it's all been a scam to get people medicated, vaccinated, and six feet under from all things COVID-related, when COVID-19 doesn't even really exist.  We've all seen crazier things happen, thanks to Big Pharma in America.

Judge Strikes Down NYC's Toddler Mask Mandate, City Plans Appeal.  A Staten Island judge on Friday [4/1/2022] struck down New York City's mask mandate for toddlers, calling it "arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable" and issuing a permanent injunction against it.  Mayor Eric Adams said the city would appeal and seek a stay of Judge Ralph Porzio's ruling.  Health Commissioner Dr. Ashwin Vasan said the city was not recommending that young kids ages 2-4 stop masking yet, and he sounded a broader note of caution too.  "Cases are definitively rising and it's gotten our attention," he said.  "They will continue to rise over the next few weeks, and it's likely that over these weeks, we will move into a different level of overall risk across the city."  Vasan said he was "recommending" people wear masks in public, indoor settings.

The COVID-19 Dossier incriminates Pfizer even more than you might have realized.  A dossier is a file containing detailed records and various documents relating to the affairs of a particular person or subject, and those "affairs" can be medical, criminal, or both.  The first part of the word, "dos," is French with origins in the Latin dorsum, as in the "dorsal" fin on the back of a whale.  A new dossier is being compiled as you read this, and it's 400,000 pages of documents already.  Pfizer has now admitted in writing that humans who were "vaccinated" for Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) can SHED, through skin contact with other humans, the pathogens contained in the syringes.  Look deeper and you will see that's just the tip of the iceberg, or the "back fin" of the whale, because hiding beneath the surface of the admission are MORE documents and data that reveal the Pfizer "vaccine" makes the injected people 300 percent more likely to contract the virus.  This whale of secret information is contained in the new COVID-19 Dossier that a former employee (biotech analyst) of Pfizer has provided.

How Fauci and NIH gave millions to fund Peter Daszak's 'crazy' gain-of-function research at Wuhan lab:  Proposal to help.  Further details of British researcher Peter Daszak's role in facilitating risky coronavirus research in China have been revealed in a new report, outlining how his EcoHealth Alliance raked in millions in federal grants.  Daszak's group, which bizarrely evolved from a save-the-manatees non-profit to a top champion of viral gain-of-function research as it chased federal funding, has long been at the center of questions about the origins of COVID-19.  A lengthy new report in Vanity Fair, based on dozens of interviews and more than 100,000 leaked internal documents, details how EcoHealth operated in a world of 'murky grant agreements, flimsy oversight, and the pursuit of government funds for scientific advancement, in part by pitching research of steeply escalating risk.'

Dr. Fauci silenced all Wuhan lab leak theories after being schmoozed by gain-of-function researcher Peter Daszak.  America's coronavirus tsar, Dr. Anthony Fauci, silenced any discussion about COVID being caused by a lab leak — and not through animal-to-human transmission — after helping a controversial scientist get millions in federal funding to study bats, a Vanity Fair investigation has revealed.  Analyzing more than 100,000 leaked documents, the magazine claimed that Fauci's approval of Peter Daszak helped his nonprofit, EcoHealth Alliance, an organization dedicated to shielding society from emerging infectious diseases, to develop the COVID-19 virus in a laboratory in China.  They also claim researchers associated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, including Daszak, tried to hide evidence about the pandemic's early spread as lab leak hypotheses began to emerge.

The Pandemic's Wrongest Man, one year later.  Last April Fool's Day, the Atlantic published a piece about me called "The Pandemic's Wrongest Man."  With the benefit of time, it is more unintentionally ironic than ever.

Pfizer CEO Says Anyone Who Questions His Company's Vaccines Are 'Criminals'.  Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla actually had the balls to once again call anyone who questions the efficacy and safety of his vaccines 'criminals' even though his own company holds the record for fines, which sits in the billions of dollars, for misinformation and outright lies about their own drugs.  Remember, this is the same company that tried to get a court to block the release of their own findings on their COVID vaccines for 75 years.  This is also the same company that boasted a 95% efficacy rate when in fact, Israeli studies show 65%, then dropping to negative efficacy after 5 months.  [Video clip]

A year later, Minnesota still has billions in federal pandemic relief dollars to spend.  In the year since the federal government allocated $1.9 trillion to a pandemic stimulus package, Minnesota has used some of the cash on everything from the expected — supporting hospitals and students — to boosting participation in the Girl Scouts and providing financial aid to crime victims.  And there's more to spend.  State government has yet to decide how to use more than a third of its $2.8 billion.  Cities, towns and counties have until the end of 2026 to spend their $2.1 billion.  "It wasn't perfect, but I'm glad it got passed.  Has it kicked off our economy?  You bet it has," said Luverne Mayor Pat Baustian, who said a freezer warehouse company and hog processing facility have since moved to his city in the southwest corner of the state.

The New Authoritarians.  The TV production of Margaret Atwood's novel The Handmaid's Tale premiered on April 26, 2017, and was widely touted in liberal media outlets as a "prescient" "mirror" of the country under Trump.  Journalists warned that the United States was on the precipice of becoming a Gilead-like dystopia where human rights would be nonexistent.  Yet based on the domineering COVID-era behavior of the show's own target audience, The Handmaid's Tale appears to have been less of a warning to viewers and more of a handbook.  Forced and coercive medical procedures, adoption of mandatory new garbs, censorship, and frozen bank accounts were central to the totalitarian state depicted in the novel and the show.  In the end, this program found its real-world parallel not in autocratic moves from the right, but in liberal-approved measures like vaccine mandates, mask requirements of dubious medical value, restrictions on speech, and seizure of protesters' financial assets — all of which were vocally supported by the affluent laptop class.

Federal Judge's Opinion on Trump Reveals Judiciary's Reliance on Media Propaganda.  It's difficult to have much faith in the judicial system when individual judges appear to be gullible consumers of fake news, swallowing media accounts of events that have been widely questioned and, at least in some cases, debunked completely.  Just how gullible and uninformed even top jurists can be was seen in January at the U.S. Supreme Court, during oral arguments over the government's COVID-19 vaccine mandate affecting nearly 100 million workers.  During the arguments, the justices revealed an ignorance of the basic facts surrounding COVID that shocked onlookers — and showed that many relied upon unreliable media sources for their information.

The English Faucis are even worse than the American ones.  Most Americans have had a bellyfull of the likes of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the National Institutes for Health bureaucrat who upended society in the name of flawed or absent research in the name of conquering COVID.  It turns out he's not sui generis, or even a bug in bad system — he's just a feature.  And now we know where he gets it from.  According to an eye-opening article in National Review by Johns Hopkins professor of applied economics, Steve Hanke, and U.K. University of Durham's Professor Kevin Dowd, the Imperial College of London is kind of a Fauci cubed, based on its constant fear-mongering and bad research models.  The college, unably headed by Dr. Neil Ferguson, wields power in inverse proportion to its compentencies.

Judge Blocks COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate for Entire Navy.  The U.S. military's COVID-19 vaccine mandate has been blocked for all Navy members seeking religious exemptions.  A preliminary injunction that previously covered 35 Navy SEALs now covers some 4,000 others.  U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor, a George W. Bush appointee who entered the original ruling in January, agreed to expand it in part because all members who have applied for religious exemptions "have all been harmed in essentially the same way."  "Each is subject to the Navy's COVID-19 vaccine mandates.  Each has submitted her religious accommodation request, and none has received accommodation.  Without relief, each servicemember faces the threat of discharge and the consequences that accompany it.  Even though their personal circumstances may factually differ in small ways, the threat is the same — get the jab or lose your job," he said in a 27-page order.

Republicans release report claiming teachers unions Wrote part of the Biden administration's guidance on reopening schools.  Republicans released a report Wednesday [3/30/2022] exposing an unusually 'cozy' relationship between teachers unions and the Biden administration's COVID-19 leaders and the CDC regarding the reopening of schools during the pandemic.  An interim report from Republicans on the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis shows emails between the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the White House and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  'Millions of Americans are still outraged at what these Washington Democrats put their children through, and all because union bosses demanded they keep schools closed longer,' said Representatives Steve Scalise, Ranking Member of the Coronavirus Committee, and James Comer, who's on the Committee on Education and Labor, in a statement to Fox News.

21 states file lawsuit against federal mask mandate on transportation.  More than 20 states filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against the federal mask mandate on transportation, which has been extended until April 18, saying it violated the Constitution and violated the Administrative Procedure Act (APA).  The 21 states claim that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had not allowed for public comment for more than a year since the federal transportation mask mandate was first issued.  They also claimed that they were negatively impacted by the mask mandate because it required states to "expend resources to enforce the mandate" and harmed states' "sovereign interests" because many states "have laws or policies prohibiting or discouraging mask requirements in contexts where the mask mandate applies," according to court filings.

FDA, CDC Guilty of Clinical Malpractice and Scientific Fraud by Inaction and Omission on mRNA Vaccine Safety Warnings.  Today, unquestionably serious cardiovascular, thrombotic and neurologic adverse events related to the vaccine have occurred around the world.  The FDA's own vaccine adverse event tracking system (the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System or VAERS) shows substantial and serious risks from the vaccine, even though the FDA only collects an estimated 10% of all adverse events.  Still, federal agencies and manufacturers aren't officially warning the American public about these risks, despite having been privy to this information for almost a whole year.  Why?  Because it would counter the narrative that taking endless vaccines and boosters is your patriotic duty.  It's pretty clear today there are both safety and efficacy problems with vaccines and boosters.

Get ready for Covid vaccines every six months.  Millions of Britons could need Covid boosters every six months for the foreseeable future, a health boss hinted today [3/28/2022].  Dr Jenny Harries, chief executive of the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), suggested the most vulnerable 'relevant groups' in society will still need regular top-up jabs.  Britain is still in a 'period of uncertainty', she said, despite all restrictions being lifted more than a month ago.

Former News Executive Reveals the Government 'Warning' Given to Networks to Air Covid Propaganda.  The Covid pandemic response beginning in 2020 was one of the most sweeping cases of media propaganda in world history.  Governments not only lied to the masses ("15 days to slow the spread," e.g.) and made dubious claims based on poor evidence ("mask up" to end the pandemic), but it censored even civilians for doubting the mainstream narrative.  Now, a former news executive at international network Sky News, as well as a veteran of ITV, has come forward to reveal what news audiences have only previously been able to surmise:  Some news networks must have been ordered to adhere to the government's pandemic narratives or risk serious consequences (such as losing broadcasting licenses and other reprisals).  Mark Sharman revealed his disturbing insights into the astoundingly coordinated media coverage of the Covid pandemic in a sit-down interview on British channel GBN's "The Lockdown Inquiry" with host Dan Wootton.

US Government Paid News Media $1 Billion For Propaganda to Promote mRNA Vaccines.  A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by TheBlaze shows Health and Human Services spent $1 billion for a media campaign to build public confidence in, and uptake of, COVID-19 vaccines using mainstream news outlets[.]  News outlets that did respond to TheBlaze assured them the editorial staff are not influenced by advertising money, but it's not hard to imagine management would not look kindly on editorial staff who write content that doesn't align with the advertising narrative[.]  Mounting evidence demonstrates why the government is paying for good press since insurance companies reported a rise in all-cause mortality in late 2021[.]  The first batch of Pfizer documents the FDA used to approve Comirnaty (Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine) were released March 1, 2022; mRNA technology inventor Dr. Robert Malone believes these papers show a break in the indemnification clauses, exposing Pfizer to potential civil and criminal liability[.]

10 Million Pandemic Deaths [were] due to Ineffective and Unnecessary Public Health Actions.  The study covered the initial two years of the COVID pandemic, 2020 and 2021.  It estimated excess mortality from the COVID-19 pandemic in 191 countries and territories, and 252 subnational units for selected countries.  Global deaths directly attributed to COVID-19 reached 5.9 million, yet estimates put excess deaths at a staggering 18.2 million during this period.  In other words, about 12 million people probably died from causes other than COVID infection.  Something that the public health establishment should be held accountable for.

Probe finds officials miscalculated COVID-19 death toll.  One of the world's largest newspaper has conducted an investigation of Britain's official COVID-19 count, finding evidence that the scope of the pandemic and the number of deaths have been significantly miscalculated.  The Mail on Sunday reported that British health chiefs have admitted that the numbers they have fed the government are only an approximation, provoking "fury" from top officials.  And the PCR tests on which cases are based have proven to be inaccurate.  In the United States, the death figures have been complicated by the fact that the CDC has estimated that only about 6% of the recorded COVID-19 deaths were from COVID-19 only.  The other fatalities had an average of more than two comorbidities, meaning serious underlying conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.

Caution:  New York Times.
Ivermectin Does Not Reduce Risk of Covid Hospitalization, Large Study Finds.  The anti-parasitic drug ivermectin, which has surged in popularity as an alternative treatment for Covid-19 despite a lack of strong research to back it up, showed no sign of alleviating the disease, according to results of a large clinical trial published on Wednesday [3/30/2022].  The study, which compared more than 1,300 people infected with the coronavirus in Brazil who received either ivermectin or a placebo, effectively ruled out the drug as a treatment for Covid, the study's authors said.  "There's really no sign of any benefit," said Dr. David Boulware, an infectious-disease expert at the University of Minnesota.  The researchers shared a summary of these results in August during an online presentation hosted by the National Institutes of Health, but the full data set had not been published until now in The New England Journal of Medicine.

FDA authorizes fourth Pfizer and Moderna Covid vaccine doses for people age 50 and older.  The top U.S. health regulators on Tuesday [3/29/2022] cleared fourth Covid vaccine doses for older adults, amid uncertainty over whether an even more contagious version of omicron will cause another wave of infections in the U.S. as it has in Europe and China.  The FDA authorized Pfizer and Moderna fourth doses for everyone age 50 and older, as well as a fifth dose for certain younger people with compromised immune systems.  People age 12 and older with weakened immune systems are eligible for a Pfizer fifth dose, and those 18 and older with the same condition are eligible for Moderna.

A Pharma Giant Imposed 'Follow the Mandate' on Vaccine Objectors.  They Are Now Ex-Workers.  Mandy Van Gorp was confident that her employer of 18 years, Eli Lilly and Company, would treat her fairly when she objected to its company-wide COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  The pharmaceutical giant had promised to exempt employees with valid health or religious objections to the policy and she believed she had had both.  Despite presenting a doctor's note in support of her exemption, citing an auto-immune disease, the company denied her request for a medical exemption.  To add injury to the insult she felt, she tested positive for COVID-19 the day after receiving her rejection letter.  She then appealed for a six-month deferral on grounds of the positive test.  Lilly also denied that request.  When she then raised her religious concerns, Lilly said she had missed the application deadline — a deadline that had lapsed several weeks before Lilly replied to her initial accommodation request.

Watchdog sues feds over COVID vaccine's 'adverse events' reports.  It's possible that some of the worst horrors of the Chinese COVID-19 pandemic that has killed millions around the world have come from the side effects of the vaccinations, which sometimes have been forced on unwilling recipients by private companies or government bureaucrats.  WND reported just this week a coroner in England ruled that a 34-year-old mother died of a "catastrophic" bleed on her brain, caused by a COVID-19 shot.  Eight days after receiving an AstraZeneca shot, Kim Lockwood complained of an excruciating headache.  About 17 hours after arriving at Rotherham Hospital in South Yorkshire, she was pronounced dead, BBC News reported.  And WND reported last week data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show the Millennial generation suffered a "Vietnam War event," with more than 61,000 excess deaths in that age group over the past year, according to an analysis by a former Wall Street executive and a Wall Street insurance expert.

Only 3% Think COVID is the Most Important Problem Facing America.  Another data point for the preference cascade.  In Jan, 20% of Americans thought COVID was the most important problem facing Americans, in Feb it was 13%, and in March, it's down to 3%.  Tied with health care and lack of energy sources.  Inflation has gone from 8% to 10% to 17%.  The economy is at 11%.  Gas prices are at 4%.

Young, sudden post-injection deaths continue.  Once upon a time in the United States, like two years, when little kids died in their sleep for no apparent reason, it was national news.  But today it's just normal and glossed over by cable and network news.  Thanks Ukraine.  Logan Gagnier was a normal, healthy 9-year-old boy from Eagle Mountain, Utah.  He loved Oreo cookies, Doritos, BYU football and Utah Jazz basketball.  He played football and basketball himself.  Logan was hanging out with his grandparents on Friday, March 11. He returned home and went to sleep later that night.  The next morning, Saturday, March 12, the family was worried when he was very late to wake up and emerge from his room.  Logan's older sister went to check on him, only to find him unresponsive in his bed.  He had been dead for hours, according to his father, Garth Gagnier.

Three enough?  Six too many?
How many COVID booster shots will finally be enough?  From the beginning of the COVID pandemic starting two years ago, we have heard conflicting and often nonsensical recommendations from those charged with knowing better and leading the country through the biggest public health crisis that most of us have ever experienced.  From "15 days to slow the spread" to mask mandates changing as fast as the weather, reality and science was whatever those in power declared it to be on any given day.  First, we were told that masks were worthless in stopping viruses.  Shortly thereafter we were told to wear one, then two, then one, now back to none.  Masks are unnecessary in a crowded mall, restaurant, or BLM protest, but life-saving in an elementary school, airport, or airplane which is constantly recirculating and disinfecting the air.  Similarly, the vaccines, we were told, would stop transmission and infection with COVID until we learned that they did neither, only reducing the severity of illness and risk of death.  In the U.K. for example, last month 80-90 percent of COVID deaths were among the vaccinated, although the "fact checkers" are eager to claim "misinterpretation" or "lack of context."

Newly Released Pfizer Documents Reveal COVID Jab Dangers.  A small batch of documents released by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in mid-November 2021 revealed that in the first three months of the COVID jab rollout, Pfizer received 42,086 adverse event reports that included 1,223 deaths[.]  The first really large tranche of Pfizer documents — some 10,000 pages — was released by the FDA March 1, 2022.  Included are nine pages of recorded side effects, about 158,000 different health problems in all[.]  An initial review of case report forms (CRFs) reveal significant data collection errors and anomalies[.]  Problems included patients entered into the "healthy population" group who were far from healthy; serious adverse event (SAE) numbers that were left blank; sample barcodes that were missing; at least one death of a patient the day before being listed as being at a medical checkup; and second doses that were administered outside the three-week protocol window.  There also are questions as to whether participants were properly observed for an adequate amount of time; plus adverse events were listed as "not serious" despite extended hospital stay and much more[.]

Of Boiling and Jumping Frogs.  Despotic politicians who also abhor the fuss of public unrest have long noted the application of this apologue to human affairs.  In early March 2020, if Anthony Fauci had said that we were about to shut down the economy for two years, force people to wear paper masks, "socially distance," and forcibly prevent people from going to church, or visiting their dying friends and relatives, there might well have been a revolt.  But that isn't how it happened.  Fauci and the health police got everything they wanted, they destroyed thousands of middle-class businesses, enriched the entitled class, and, more generally, made fools and peons of us all.  But they did it slowly.  "Two weeks to flatten the curve."  Remember that?  Remember when, early on, Fauci said that it would be fine for young, healthy people to go on a cruise?  Remember when he pooh-poohed the effectiveness of masks?  Whatever else they demonstrated, the regime's COVID policies, and the public's response to those policies, showed that entire populations could be herded and shorn like sheep.  All you needed was a public health pretext — not a genuine emergency, mind you, just a pretext — and battalions of aspiring Gauleiters willing to enforce the rules and, bang, instant and prolonged hysteria.

Aspirin Appeared to Help Against Moderate COVID-19: Study.  Patients with moderate COVID-19 appeared to benefit from early administration of aspirin, according to a new study.  Patients who were given aspirin on their first day in the hospital were less likely to die or experience blood clotting, researchers found.  Dr. Jonathan Chow with the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences and other researchers analyzed data from 64 healthcare systems for the study.  Moderate COVID-19 was defined as not needing intensive care such as mechanical ventilation of oxygenation.  Out of 112,269 patients with moderate COVID-19, approximately 15,200 received aspirin on the first day of admission.  The median duration of aspirin administration was five days.

Quarantine Slaughterhouse:  Numbers Are Coming in on Non-COVID Deaths During Lockdowns.  In the rush to mitigate the spread of the COVID virus, public health policy could have best been described as a lot of throwing the baby out with the bathwater.  This was understandable and forgivable in the early stages of the pandemic when officials didn't have any idea about what they were dealing with.  As the pandemic wore on, however, it became more about exercising power than saving lives.  Take school shutdowns, for example.  Teachers' unions fought tooth and nail to keep schools closed, acting as if they were on the front lines in the battle of Fallujah and in mortal peril.  The consequences for the kids were never taken into account.  We're just beginning to find out about some of the damage that was done.  There is no way that the post mortem news on this subject is going to get any better.

The pandemic city exodus revealed:  New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago lost the most residents.  New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and other large cities lost the most residents during the pandemic city exodus last year as about 75 percent of U.S. counties experienced a loss in population, according to a new report from the U.S. Census Bureau.  The agency revealed on Thursday [3/24/2022] that American's fled metropolitan areas between April 2020 to July 2021 in favor of the South West, with Dallas, Houston, Austin and Phoenix among those to see the largest growth last year.  The Census Bureau said:  'In 2021, fewer births, an aging population and increased mortality — intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic — contributed to a rise in natural [population] decrease' across the country,' but particular hitting big cities the hardest.'

The Editor says...
Covid is the all-purpose fig leaf for other problems created by socialist Democrats.  All four of the cities named in the headline above are Democrat-controlled cities where violent homeless people roam the streets, mobs of looters do whatever they want because leftist prosecutors don't want to incarcerate blacks, and taxes are sky-high.  Covid has little or nothing to do with this mass exodus.

Long COVID Defines A Long Pandemic.  Huge numbers of people who survived initial COVID infection are plagued with many health problems greatly reducing their quality of life.  These are now well known as long COVID victims.  Despite lives severely impacted, they have been receiving very little help from the medical establishment.  And a major article in The Washington Post documented that working age long COVID victims unable to work at their jobs have had little success in getting benefits from insurance companies and government agencies.  So, in addition to serious health problems many face economic disaster[.]

The COVID Hall of Shame — So Far.  Let us not declare an end to societal disruption by governmental decree justified by COVID-19.  Who can know what the CCP, CDC, WHO, or DNC (all looking so similar recently) will unleash upon us tomorrow?  If it's in their interest to wreak havoc, they will try — and may succeed. [...] When some enterprising soul discovers an existing treatment for a new health threat, he or she usually becomes an overnight hero, especially when the treatment is safe, cheap, and widely available.  When President Trump spoke of the promise of hydroxychloroquine for treating COVID-19, the national media scoffed, because they considered Trump an ignoramus.  When physicians who had prescribed hydroxychloroquine safely to prevent and treat malaria and chronic diseases for six decades championed its off-label use to treat a potentially fatal malady for which no other treatment existed, they were ostracized, and their medical licenses threatened.  The hapless Neil Cavuto declared on Fox News:  "this stuff will kill you."  He couldn't have been more wrong.  I know a medical professional who contracted COVID early on.  She told me the hydroxychloroquine she took regularly for another illness saved her life.  The drug proved effective in multiple studies when given early in the course of the disease, but its use was never adopted.  Many died needlessly as a result.

Uncovering the Corona Narrative.  The current situation we find ourselves in is unique in the history of mankind.  Never before has the whole world been thrown under the rule of this type of coercive regime as now in our time, and never have so many measures been taken which at first glance appear so unintelligible, partly so nonsensical, and in many cases so contradictory.  Officially, this is about the most serious health crisis in living memory, but the measures being used against this have not improved the situation but continuously made things worse.  Every doctor today can confirm the health condition of people, the majority of people, is worse than before the crisis, and even from the point of view of those who ordered the measures we are faced with a shamble.  The allegedly threatening 4th wave, and the announcement of the need for 3rd, 4th and 5th vaccinations, show that the purpose of the measures up to now, namely preventing the illness, has failed completely.  But that is not all by far.  As a consequence of the lockdowns up to now, we have a severe global economic crisis to manage.  Worldwide production hangs in complete disarray.  Global logistics is on the floor, supply chains are broken, harvests are being lost, food supply bottlenecks, and on top of this a scarcity for a large part of the economy of essential semi-conductors.  But also, in this we are seeing the problems are not being addressed and solved, but multiplied and magnified, via the application of further measures, and the constant threats of new restrictions.  The most recent example, in China, a port freight terminal, the 3rd largest in the world, has been closed down due to a single positive test from a worker there.  Or, take New Zealand, where in all seriousness during the last week, 5 million people were put in lockdown for 3 days, because a single 58-year-old had a positive test.

End the Mask Mandates — Now.  British airlines, our own airline pilots, Republican lawmakers and anyone with common sense knows mask mandates on planes are worthless — so why do the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention refuse to "follow the science"?  Last week, the Transportation Security Administration became essentially the last holdout in extending a mask mandate on airplanes and in airports (along with other transportation hubs), as enforcement of the CDC transportation mask mandate.  The Texas Public Policy Foundation has sued over that mandate, pointing out that it's an unconstitutional power-grab, far beyond the powers granted to the CDC by Congress.  It's time for the federal government to be stripped of the nondelegated, unauthorized powers it seized during the COVID-19 pandemic.  British airlines have gotten the message.

Biden Tells Congress More Funds Needed for Another Booster Shot.  The U.S. Congress authorized spending $9 billion on funding an initial two-shot vaccine and a booster shot for all Americans.  But now, as the pharmaceutical companies are telling Congress that another booster will be needed, the administration is pleading poverty.  "We do have sufficient current inventory of vaccines, both at states and pharmacies and other access points around the country and in our central inventory for fourth doses if they're called for this spring for our most vulnerable, including seniors," Biden COVID-19 response coordinator Jeff Zients said.

Dem Offices on Cap Hill Remain Closed After Biden's Call for Return to Normalcy.  Less than a week after President Joe Biden in his State of the Union address called for Americans to return to the office after two years of COVID-19 restrictions, numerous Democratic offices in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives have failed to end their work-from-home policies.  A Washington Free Beacon investigation after Biden's speech found that many Democratic offices completely closed and unstaffed, with several displaying signs that they were not returning to work due to COVID-19. Included among the shuttered offices was none other than that of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.). In the middle of the workday his front desk was unstaffed, and there was nobody in sight.  His office did not respond to a request for comment about when its teleworking policy would end.

There is no emergency, and there is no demand for this product.  Children under six need this "vaccine" less than anybody else.
Moderna to Seek Emergency Covid Vaccine Authorization for Children Under Six.  Moderna will seek emergency authorization for its Covid-19 vaccine in children under six, the company announced Wednesday, meaning that this age demographic will likely soon be eligible for the shot.  The pharmaceutical company's U.S. and Canadian clinical trial produced promising results, namely that two low doses provided a "robust" immune response in young kids and are safe to be administered, the company said.

Most Americans are moving on from COVID.  Progressive elites aren't.  The chaotic news cycle in Ukraine has overshadowed a significant development domestically — the drastic shift in public opinion on Covid-19 precautions.  "Two years after the start of the pandemic, the nation is ready to move on," Axios reported last week.  "64% of survey respondents now favor federal, state and local governments lifting all COVID-19 restrictions, up 20 percentage points since early February."

Please do not ask for an exemption if you are not a celebrity.
NYC Mayor Announces Vaccine-Mandate Exemption for Professional Athletes, Performers.  Newly elected Mayor Eric Adams declared a special carve-out to New York City's employer vaccine mandate Thursday [3/24/2022] for professional athletes and performers, allowing unvaccinated athletes like Brooklyn Nets superstar Kyrie Irving back onto his home court.  Adams announced the decision at a press conference at Citi Field this morning.  "Today I signed an emergency executive order expanding the performance exemption to the private employer vaccine mandate," he said.

'Catastrophic' bleed:  Coroner concludes 34-year-old mom died of COVID vaccine.  A coroner in England has concluded that a 34-year-old mother died from a "catastrophic" bleed on the brain caused by a COVID-19 vaccine.  Eight days after receiving an AstraZeneca shot, Kim Lockwood complained of an excruciating headache.  About 17 hours after arriving at Rotherham Hospital in South Yorkshire, she was pronounced dead, BBC News reported.  She died one year ago, in March 2021, but the coroner said little was known at the time of her death about the link between the COVID-19 vaccine and the condition Lockwood suffered, Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia, or VITT.  The coroner, Nicola Mundy, said that because of "medical advances," the condition is better-recognized since the initial vaccine rollout.

Young associate medical director — the "Dr. Fauci" of Louisville, Kentucky — dies suddenly and unexpectedly.  The medical community in Louisville, Kentucky was shocked to find out that one of their own, Dr. SarahBeth Hartlage, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on March 17.  The medical community and the media refuse to ask questions about her death.  Why did the lockdown-loving, mask-wearing, triple-vaxxed doctor not survive the "winter of death" that was supposed to plague the unvaccinated?  Why did the young, fully boosted medical doctor suddenly die without reason?  Instead, the community used her death to promote the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines.  "We are stunned and deeply saddened by the sudden and unexpected passing of Dr. SarahBeth Hartlage," said Dr. Sarah Moyer, Department of Public Health and Wellness director.  "As a result of her leadership, knowledge and planning, thousands of our Louisville residents received life-saving COVID-19 vaccines."

CDC: Due to a 'Coding Error,' We Massively Over-Counted COVID Deaths Among Children.  [W]e are just beginning to quantify the ongoing damage done by COVID, as well as the harm inflicted by related lockdowns and restrictions.  Children and students were particularly hard-hit by the latter phenomenon, as they were overwhelmingly safe from severe outcomes from Coronavirus infections — yet had their learning, development and overall wellbeing aggressively stunted by terrible government policies in many parts of the country.  We also know that drug overdoses surged overall, and youth suicide attempts increased, during this stressful period featuring a great deal of social isolation.  Another contributing factor to the "excess deaths" phenomenon (the biggest of which was COVID itself) was deaths linked to alcohol abuse. [...] Delayed treatment on other fronts (due to COVID restrictions or concerns) has also contributed to deaths and serious illness.

'It Makes No Sense': American, United, Delta, Southwest Airline CEOs Demand Biden Drops Mask Mandate.  The CEOs of several major airline and logistics companies issued a joint statement Wednesday asking the Biden administration to end federal mask mandates.  Noting how "much has changed" since Covid measures were implemented, the CEOs argued that, given the high rate of vaccination and declining infection and death rates, the administration should consider dropping the mask rule.  "Now is the time for the Administration to sunset federal transportation travel restrictions — including the international pre-departure testing requirement and the federal mask mandate — that are no longer aligned with the realities of the current epidemiological environment," the corporate execs wrote in a letter disseminated by the Airlines for America trade association.

Airline CEOs Send King Biden a Letter Asking Him To Remove Useless Mask Mandates.  On Wednesday [3/23/2022], the CEOs of American Airlines, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and other major carriers sent a letter to Joe Biden urging him to end federal mask mandates on airplanes as well as international pre-departure testing requirements.  Citing scientific data, the airlines implore Biden to lift the travel restrictions on airlines so the US travel and tourism sectors no longer needlessly struggle.  In the letter, the CEOs explain that they have followed all instructions regarding Covid-19 policies thus far, but request that now their companies are able to follow the scientific evidence and data that show we are no longer in a severe state of this pandemic.

Ukraine and the RINO Delusion.  [Scroll down]  In retrospect, the administration's desperate attempt to shift the narrative clearly began on January 6, when U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman ordered the accelerated release of an estimated 450,000 pages of Pfizer documents regarding the COVID vaccine trials they had conducted prior to preliminary FDA emergency use authorization of the vaccine in December 2020.  Soon after, attorney Thomas Renz dropped a bombshell in congressional testimony that was completely ignored by the corporate media:  Data sets recently provided to him by three Department of Defense whistleblowers showed astronomical increases in serious heart issues, nervous system disorders, cancers, infertility, and other grave health issues among military personnel (who are subject to strict vaccine mandates) in 2021 when compared to the average for the five previous years.  When Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) followed up with a formal inquiry to the Defense Department, the Pentagon rescinded the data and claimed that the apparent spikes in serious health issues were due to clerical errors.  Simultaneous with these ominous developments, Dr. Anthony Fauci, omnipresent in all the major media outlets for the last two years as official mouthpiece on all things COVID, began withdrawing from public view.

Airline CEOs Call on Biden to Lift Mask Mandate, Covid-Test Requirement for Air Travel.  The Biden administration should lift its mask mandate and Covid-testing requirements for air travelers, ten CEOs of U.S. passenger and cargo airlines said in a letter released on Wednesday [3/23/2022].  The administration currently requires travelers flying into the U.S. from abroad to present a negative Covid test prior to takeoff.  Additionally, the Transportation Security Administration extended a mask mandate for all public transportation, including air travel, on March 18.  The mask mandate is set to expire on April 18.


44 Studies on Vaccine Efficacy That Raise Doubts on Vaccine Mandates.  As some people have now been vaccinated for more than half a year, evidence is pouring in about Covid vaccine efficacy.  When evaluating vaccine efficacy, it is important to distinguish between efficacy against infection, symptomatic disease, and transmission versus efficacy against hospitalization and death.  For infection and symptomatic disease, the COVID-19 vaccines are not as efficacious as hoped, with immunity gradually waning after a few months.  For hospitalization and death, immunity is stronger, lasting for at least six months.  The gestalt of the findings implies that the infection explosion globally that we have been experiencing — post double vaccination in e.g.  Israel, UK, United States, etc. — may be due to the vaccinated spreading Covid as much or more than the unvaccinated.

Jill Biden Invites Lawmakers' Spouses To White House, Tells Unvaxxed They Can't Eat Or Drink, Congressman's Wife Says.  First Lady Jill Biden has invited a bunch of congressional spouses for a social event at the White House, which features some of the best food anyone could ever eat.  But anyone who's unvaccinated won't get a bite, according to a new report.  "Erika Donalds, wife to freshman Florida Congressman Byron Donalds, a pro-Trump, staunchly conservative Republican, tweeted a screenshot of the first lady's COVID-19 guidelines for the event, and they're even more arbitrary and discriminatory than you might expect," Western Journal reported.  "First Lady Jill Biden was kind enough to invite me & the other Congressional spouses to a reception at the White House," she wrote on Twitter.  "I just have to take a COVID test, & as an unvaccinated person (with natural immunity) I won't be allowed to eat, drink, or talk to anyone.  Should be a blast!"

I smell astroturf.
Seattle students walk out of school, demand mask mandates be reinstated.  More than 100 Seattle Public Schools students walked out of class Monday morning to protest the district's decision to end the requirement that students and staff wear masks.  Many of those students rallied at district headquarters, the John Stanford Center, to ask Superintendent Brent Jones to reinstate the mask mandate districtwide.  Mask requirements for Seattle and most other districts in the state ended a week ago.  "It's absolutely maddening we have to take time away from our education to fight for safety and health," said Marigold Wong, a sophomore at Franklin High School.

More Americans 65 and Under Died from Alcohol-Related Causes Than Covid-19 in 2020, Study Finds.  Alcohol-related deaths increased 25 percent from 2019 to 2020, with alcohol-related deaths among adults younger than 65 outnumbering deaths from Covid-19 in the same age group in 2020, a new study found.  Alcohol-related deaths, including from liver disease and accidents, increased to 99,017 in 2020, up from 78,927 the year prior, according to the study performed by researchers with the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, a division of the National Institutes of Health.

The Island of Dr. Fauci.  Going into the November midterms, we learn that the Republicans enjoy a double-digit generic ballot lead over the Democrats thanks to the concatenating failures of arguably the worst administration ever to preside over the nation. [...] Despite living off the viscid meld of lies, jobbery, slander, censorship, and corruption, both the Democrat party and its cortege of patrons and apologists are uniquely adept at insidious reasoning and political calculation.  Not only will they never allow a crisis to go to waste — a phrase used positively by Winston Churchill and pejoratively by Rahm Emanuel — the party and its retinue know how to manufacture a crisis in the first place to foster their radically subversive aims.  Never let a non-crisis remain an empty category.

COVID Proves Politicizing Everything Breaks Everything.  Let's set aside the question of whether the public should blame the president for each of the COVID deaths.  Let's also set aside the thorny question of whether that count includes dubious cases in which the victim died "with" COVID as opposed to "from" COVID. Neither of those concerns obscure a conclusion so obvious that even the Left cannot use its fallback, "Russian disinformation!" dodge.  While Democrats and "health officials" united to impose vaccine mandates, mask mandates, and numerous restrictions, nothing stopped the pandemic from getting worse.  Everything got worse even after we did everything the Left wanted.  This taps a common thread that passes through so much of the Left's agenda.  As the Left hypes an emotional response to a problem, the rush to action skips over a fundamental question that should precede any mandate or expenditure of public funds:  Does the proposed solution work?

The correlation between vaccines and the Ukraine-Russia war.  [Scroll down]  The new Democrats — the people on college campuses like Obama's friends Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn — were not anti-communist.  They were very pro-communist.  They opposed the Vietnam War for two reasons:  (1) As products of American academia they supported the Viet Cong; and (2) also as products of American academia, they opposed anything that would benefit what they were already viewing as an evil, imperialist, racist, sexist nation that did not deserve support. [...] And then, along came Trump and COVID.  The anti-war protesters from the 1960s and the 2000s despised Trump more than any other human being, ever ("worse than Hitler").  Additionally, the young'uns had absorbed the concentrated America-hatred of two to three generations of leftist academics.  They embraced COVID, not just because they're fearful people, but because they saw it as an opportunity to destroy Trump.  They also quickly realized that COVID was giving them the political and social power they'd always dreamed of so that they could break down and remake America.

Something Very Suspicious Is Happening With China's Latest COVID Reporting.  China reported two COVID-19 deaths on Saturday — the first COVID-related deaths they've reported in over a year.  "China, which reported 3,844 new COVID-19 cases Saturday, reinstated safety measures last week to curb the spread of the virus," reports The Hill.  "The country urged residents not to leave Beijing and shut down schools in Shanghai.  Most of the new cases have been located in [the province of] Jilin."  China, which gave the world the COVID-19 virus, allegedly has a "zero tolerance" policy for identifying and isolating positive COVID cases and has mass testing throughout the country.  This strategy, they say, has prevented China from having higher death rates as has been seen in other countries.  The last time China recorded a COVID death was January 2021, and if you really believe China's numbers, then you're not a serious person.

Fauci Comparison of Great Barrington Declaration Authors to AIDS Deniers 'Utterly Shocking:' Bhattacharya.  Dr. Anthony Fauci's comparison of Great Barrington Declaration authors and signatories to "AIDS denialism" was "utterly shocking," one of the authors says.  "In no way have I or any of the signers of the Great Barrington Declaration denied COVID.  COVID is a deadly disease.  It's killed millions.  It in particular is a danger to older populations," Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, an epidemiology professor at the University of Stanford, told EpochTV's American Thought Leaders program.  The premise of the declaration is that COVID-19 presents a danger to some people, Bhattacharya and Martin Kulldorff, another author, told The Epoch Times.  "The reason that we proposed focused protection in the Great Barrington Declaration is because we take COVID very seriously and that there needed to be much better protection of older, high-risk people," Kulldorff said.  But "we protected the younger members of the laptop class who were terrified of the COVID when they shouldn't have been because the risk was very, very small.  At the same time, we didn't protect older working-class people" like bus drivers.

Psaki repeats debunked claim Biden admin inherited 'no real plan' on vaccine rollout.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki repeated a debunked claim Thursday that the Biden administration inherited "no real plan" from the Trump administration for vaccinating Americans against COVID-19.  "When we came into this administration, I would remind you, it's now a long time ago, there was no real plan," Psaki said during her daily briefing.  "We were left no plan by our predecessors.["] [...] Dr. Anthony Fauci previously debunked claims that the Biden administration started from scratch on its vaccine rollout.  Speaking from the White House podium alongside Psaki the day after President Biden's inauguration, Fauci told reporters, "We certainly are not starting from scratch because there is activity going on in the distribution," adding that the Biden administration was "taking what's gone on" under Trump and "amplifying it in a big way."

Forbes Removes Contributor After 'Numerous' Articles About Fauci.  Forbes has cut off its association with a prolific contributor after he wrote a number of articles about Dr. Anthony Fauci.  Forbes recently removed Adam Andrzejewski, founder and CEO of OpenTheBooks.com, as a contributor.  Prior to the action, Andrzejewski had multiple stories on information that he and his group obtained regarding Fauci's financial situation.  Fauci, the longtime head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is the highest-compensated federal employee, one article revealed.  Another detailed how difficult it was to obtain certain details on Fauci's job and finances.  A third outlined aspects of disclosures released to Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.).  Shortly after the last article, Caroline Howard, an executive editor at Forbes, wrote to Andrzejewski about his choice of topics.  "I see this is your third article on Fauci in 3 weeks.  Huh," Howard wrote, according to a copy of the email published by Andrzejewski.

Dr. McCullough:  The Authorities Pushing the COVID Vaccines Have Broken the Law.  "We have laws that say that for any biological product, it must be presented in fair balance.  There must be risks and benefits.  No one can bark a command, "Get vaccinated'... Our president of the United States has broken the law."  [Video clip]

Dr. Collins Blindsided by First Questions on 'Takedown' Email.  Dr. Francis Collins, a former top U.S. health official, was caught off-guard when he was asked for the first time about a report issued by members of Congress that revealed new information, including the email Collins sent urging a "takedown" of the Great Barrington Declaration, according to an email obtained by The Epoch Times.  Collins, the head of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) until Dec. 19, 2021, called for a "quick and devastating published takedown" of the declaration, which called for a more balanced approach to combating the COVID-19 pandemic, in an email in October 2020.  The email, sent just days after the document was authored by three epidemiologists, was made public by a congressional panel near the end of 2021.  In an appearance on Fox News just hours after the panel's report was released, Collins was confronted about the email for the first time.  Host Neil Cavuto asked Collins about the report's claims that the White House under President Donald Trump made attempts to "undermine the COVID response."

Bayer Executive Says mRNA Vaccines are Gene Therapy.  A speech made last year by a Bayer executive mentioning that messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines are gene therapy is gaining traction on social media for the second time since it was initially posted online in October 2021.  Stefan Oelrich, a member of the Board of Management of Bayer and head of the Pharmaceuticals Division, gave a speech at the World Health Summit focused on biotechnological innovation.  He said his company is "really taking that leap ... in cell and gene therapy."  "Ultimately, the mRNA vaccines are an example for that cell and gene therapy," Oelrich said at the event's opening in Berlin.  "I always like to say, if we had surveyed two years ago in the public — 'would you be willing to take gene or cell therapy and inject it into your body?' — we probably would have had a 95 percent refusal rate," he added.  The pandemic has given the pharmaceutical industry innovation opportunities that may have not been possible before, Oelrich said.

Woman Died of Rare Brain Bleed After Getting COVID-19 Vaccine:  Coroner.  A coroner in the United Kingdom has determined that a woman died from a side effect caused by the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.  The woman was identified as 34-year-old Kim Lockwood, who had complained of a headache eight days after taking the shot in March of 2021, South Yorkshire Coroner Nicola Mundy told the BBC in a statement on March 16.  The coroner said her condition quickly deteriorated, and she was pronounced dead 17 hours after being admitted to the hospital, eight days after getting the shot.

The World Is Suffering From Mass Delusional Psychosis.  A number of mental health experts have expressed concern over the blatant fear and panic mongering during the COVID-19 pandemic, warning about potential — and let's face it, likely — psychiatric effects.  In a December 22, 2020, article in Evie Magazine, S.G. Cheah discusses what may in fact be the real problem at hand:  mass insanity caused by "delusional fear of COVID-19."  Cheah refers to lectures and articles by psychiatrist and medical legal expert Dr. Mark McDonald, who believes "the true public health crisis lies in the widespread fear which morphed and evolved into a form of mass delusional psychosis."  Cheah goes on to review a number of irrational behaviors that have become all too commonplace, such as parents being kicked off planes because their young children refuse to wear a mask during the flight, or people having hysterical meltdowns when they see a person not wearing a mask.  The science is quite clear about the risk posed by asymptomatic individuals, meaning anyone who feels perfectly healthy yet may have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 with a PCR test set to an excessively high cycle threshold.  They pose an exceptionally low risk to others, if any risk at all.  Science is even clearer on healthy individuals who test negative for SARS-CoV-2.  You simply cannot spread a virus you do not have.

The Medical Establishment's Willful Blindness About Vaccines and Children.  In my email on March 19, a Medscape "Perspective" post by William G. Wilkoff, MD titled "Waiting for the Under-5 COVID-19 Vaccine" caught my attention.  He opens by noting that "Pfizer and BioNTech announced that they were delaying the application for their COVID-19 vaccine for children under the age of 5."  He goes on to say that "earlier evidence suggests that two doses may not provide adequate protection in the 2- to 4-year old age group."  Wilkoff might be forgiven for not knowing that the FDA and CDC have carefully avoided allowing facts to escape their lairs but the English NHS data should have been somewhere in his knowledge base.  And that data has consistently shown that, under the age of 55, the risk of death from COVID is statistically indistinguishable from zero.  In plain English, it says that a child's chance of dying from COVID is about the same as expiring from a rattlesnake bite in Antarctica.

New Hampshire [will] Become [the] First State to Allow Ivermectin Without [a] Prescription.  The antiparasitic drug, lambasted by liberal disinformation machines as "horse dewormer" is finally getting easy access.  This allows individuals whose elitist doctors will not prescribe it to make important medical choices on their own. [...] 79 countries have approved the use of Ivermectin over the counter, and now NH is the first — but likely not the last — state to begin to do so as well.  This Republican-led initiative passed through NH's house on a vote of 183-159, with the majority of Democrats still clinging to old misinformation about the medication.

Fauci: We Have to Be Prepared to Reinstitute Some Restrictions for COVID Variants.  National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday on ABC's "This Week" that new variants of COVID could cause America to reinstitute some restrictions.  Discussing the new BA.2 variant of COVID, Fauci said, "It has a degree of transmission advantage over the original Omicron.  Not a multi-fold advantage.  It's about 50 to 60% or so more transmissible.  It means over time.  It might take over as the dominant variant.  Throughout the world, it's about 80 plus percent, 85% of the isolate.  In the United States, it's still around 30%."

Dr. Anthony Fauci Considers Resigning From Federal Government Before He Can Be Fired.  National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci is considering resignation from his long-held post with the federal government.  Fauci is publicly claiming that he might leave because the pandemic, now that the midterm elections are on the horizon, has been declared over. [...] Fauci is hinting at retirement as Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) works to have him fired after righteously dragging Fauci's name through the mud in many public hearings.  "We've learned a lot over the past two years, but one lesson in particular is that no one person should be deemed "dictator-in-chief."  No one person should have unilateral authority to make decisions for millions of Americans," said Dr. Paul in a press release.

Yet another flip-flop:
Dr Fauci, 81, backtracks on hints that he's thinking of retiring.  Dr Anthony Fauci has rowed back on hints that he will soon retire, with 81 year-old saying he thinks the COVID pandemic is still far from over.  Speaking a day after he'd said 'I can't stay in this job forever,' Fauci appeared determined to stay when asked on ABC's This Week if he really was thinking of quitting.  He answered: 'I'm not so sure, George,' the director of the National Health Institute told anchor George Stephonaupolous.  'I want to make sure we're really out of this before I really seriously consider doing anything different.  We're still in this.'

Fauci, ex-NIH chief Collins likened to 'African presidents' for life at science censorship forum.  The average American was unlikely to see mainstream scientists challenging COVID-19 conventional wisdom outside of Fox News until recent months, when New York Times columnist David Leonhardt started shifting the Overton Window for elite discourse on pandemic policy.  That troubles the three dozen scientists, academics and journalists who gathered in D.C. last week to discuss censorship in science and ways to push back, perhaps through alternative institutions such as the nascent University of Austin.  President Trump's former COVID advisor Scott Atlas cohosted the "quasi-kickoff" of Hillsdale College's Academy for Science and Freedom, which he called a "seed" to be followed by larger meetings and smaller working groups.  Also hosting were Great Barrington Declaration coauthors Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford Medicine and Martin Kulldorff, formerly of Harvard Medical School, who are founding fellows with Atlas.

Biden's Choleric New COVID Czar.  The White House has announced that Dr. Ashish K. Jha will soon replace Jeffrey Zients as the Biden administration's coronavirus response coordinator.  The good news is that Jha, unlike Zients, is an actual physician.  The bad news is that, since the advent of COVID-19, his public statements concerning the pandemic have been tainted by partisan politics and malicious ad hominem attacks on any heretic who dares to question establishment coronavirus orthodoxy.  Dr. Jha once appeared on The View, for example, to accuse Stanford University's Dr. Scott W. Atlas of spreading unspecified "misinformation" during the latter's brief tenure as advisor to then-President Trump.  Anyone reluctant to believe this cheap shot was more about politics than public health should consider that Jha also pronounced Trump rallies dangerous, yet insisted that BLM riots were not.

Ri-i-i-ight.
CDC Says It Accidentally Inflated Children's COVID Death Numbers In 'Coding Logic Error'.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revised its data this week to reduce pediatric deaths from COVID-19 by nearly 24%.  On Tuesday [3/15/2022], the agency was reporting on its COVID Data Tracker that 1,755 Americans under age 18 had died from the virus since the pandemic began in spring 2020. Now, it is reporting 1,341 deaths in that category.  [Tweet]  The CDC said the number was revised March 15 due to a "coding logic error," according to a footnote on the agency's COVID Data Tracker.  Pediatric death counts were not the only ones to be lowered — total deaths were reduced by roughly 70,000. [...] According to the CDC's weekly provisional data, only 921 children have died for reasons "involving COVID-19," an even lower number than the official data tracker now presents.

The CDC's Credibility Takes Another Blow After Another 'Mistake' Is 'Revised'.  Trying to decide which governmental institution has suffered the greatest loss of credibility over the COVID-19 pandemic is a bit like trying to decide whether it's better to take a left or right jab to the head.  There's really no wrong answer, and it's all going to hurt.  Yet, when looking at the CDC, they sit somewhere near the top — given just how apolitical the organization seemed to be prior to the coronavirus.  Sure, nothing in Washington, D.C., is ever actually apolitical, but at least it was such a small part of our lives that you never really thought about it.  Over the last two years, though, the CDC has been interjected into American policy-making in unprecedented ways, and that's led to some terrible results via unsupported mask hysteria, lockdowns, and other mandates.  And while you'd expect an organization founded on "science" to never do things with a political bent, it's clear CDC Dir. Rochelle Walensky has been getting her orders directly from the Biden administration.

UTLA and SEIU Local 99 Grifters Will Not Go Quietly on Dropping Mask Mandates for LAUSD.  After Governor Gavin Newsom lifted his hand on February 15 to ease the indoor mask mandates for unvaccinated individuals — but not for the schools, students and parents continued to hammer him on this selective easing and his continued insistence on maintaining his emergency powers, which allow him to keep these COVID mandates in place.  Hair Gel claimed he would revisit the student mask mandates on March 11, but certain California county school districts had had enough of his Hairfulness' version of selective science.  They independently reviewed the actual science, and their insurance carrier's policies, and proceeded to bypass Newsom to institute their own mask-optional policies before March 11.  So, Newsom lifted his hand again and decided that mask mandates in schools were to end after March 11 after all.  Amazing how that works.

Air Force Veteran Forced to Choose Between Getting Vaccine or Dying.  Chad Carswell was barely 18 when insurgents during Operation Enduring Freedom took aim at his KC-135 — a giant gas tank with wings — with him and other Air Force crewmen inside.  He described a chaotic scene in an exclusive interview with The Epoch Times and the moment he realized the only way to thwart a deadly and fiery explosion was to try to get to the guns that were locked up in a vehicle 10 feet away.  "It was a pretty intense moment," recalled Carswell who recounted the days he served at the border of Qatar during U.S. airstrikes on Al-Qaeda and the Taliban in America's response to the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States.  Carswell admittedly didn't expect to find himself in combat just weeks into boot camp.  Others newly enlisted left before finishing training, but Carswell said humanitarian work with refugees "made him realize how blessed he was" — and so he stayed in to help.  Sadly, some Americans have not shown Carswell the same compassion.

The Vindication of D.A. Henderson.  "We were going to invent pandemic planning."  Those were the words of Dr. Rajeev Venkayya in 2005 when he headed the White House bioterrorism study group under George W. Bush.  "We want to use all instruments of national power to confront this threat," Venkayya told colleagues in the administration, as reported by Michael Lewis in his book "The Premonition."  That was the birth of the idea of national lockdown for pathogenic threat.  To mainstream epidemiologists, the idea seemed crazy and potentially ruinous at the time, a fact that only emboldened its creators.  Venkayya's colleague computer scientist Robert Glass told Lewis:  ["]I asked myself, 'Why didn't these epidemiologists figure it out?'  They didn't figure it out because they didn't have tools that were focused on the problem.  They had tools to understand the movement of infectious diseases without the purpose of trying to stop them.["]

The Final Nail in the Coffin of Mask Hysteria Emerges.  [Scroll down]  South Korea is a country that has long been held up as a model for how to fight COVID-19.  Already possessing a culture of compliance, widespread mask-usage in the Asian country pre-existed the pandemic, and once the coronavirus hit, that kicked into high gear.  Mask mandates were dutifully followed by almost all South Korean residents, and social distancing was implemented.  And for a while, it seemed to work.  Whenever someone wanted to down the United States' response to the coronavirus, South Korea was a favorite comparison to make.  But as with New Zealand, it appears the inevitable was just being delayed by strict social distancing measures, which are effective but are also highly damaging to the physical, mental, and economic wellbeing of people.  To illustrate that, you only have to look at what's currently happening in South Korea.  Despite the nation's best efforts, it is on the verge of catching up to the United States in cumulative COVID cases.

There is no need for more COVID money.  In the interest of providing much-needed aid to Ukraine, avoiding a government shutdown, and sending as much pork home to their home districts as possible, members of Congress acted on a bipartisan basis this month and passed an omnibus spending bill six months into the fiscal year.  As badly as they behaved in doing this, they at least had the good sense to purge from this 2,700-page monstrosity President Joe Biden's request for $22.5 billion (later $15.6 billion) in additional funds for COVID relief.  The only danger at this point is that members might go back and decide that it's worth wasting this money.  It isn't.  The feds have failed, despite being pressed repeatedly, to show what happened to all the hundreds of billions spent on COVID already.  It is known at this point that a large amount of that money is not being used.  In a time when inflation is setting multidecadal records, there is no reason to make things even worse by spending even more money on a situation that is no longer an economic or health emergency.

Fauci Says He's Considering Stepping Down.  Dr. Anthony Fauci said in a new interview that he is considering stepping away from the position he'd held since 1984.  Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), was asked during a podcast released March 18 whether he was mulling retirement or transitioning to a less-demanding job.  "I certainly am because I've got to do it sometime," Fauci, 81, said.  "I can't stay at this job forever, unless my staff is going to find me slumped over my desk one day.  I'd rather not do that," he added.  Fauci was appointed to his position in 1984 during the Reagan administration.

NYC Indefinitely Extends Vaccine Mandate for Employers, School Mask Mandate for Toddlers.  New York City's private employer vaccine mandate and the school mask mandate imposed on children five-and-under will remain in place indefinitely, the city's new health commissioner announced Friday [3/18/2022].  "I think it's indefinite at this point," Dr. Ashwin Vasan said at COVID-19 press briefing.  "People who have tried to predict what will happen in this future for this pandemic have repeatedly found egg on their face, as they say.  And I'm not going to do that here today."  "I would love for me to sit here and say, I can give you a date or a data point for when we would lift those things," he added.  "Right now, we are in a low risk environment, and we will continue to evaluate that data."  On March 2, New York State lifted its school mask mandate for kids ages five and up, keeping the requirement for those younger.  Last week, however, New York City Mayor Eric Adams said the end was in sight for kids under five, promising to suspend the mask rule for them if Covid-19 cases remained low.

Fauci returns with a warning:  We need to be ready to impose new restrictions.  If memory serves, it took all of six weeks last year for public health officials to move from urging the vaccinated to take off their masks to nudging them to put them on again.  It's been only three weeks since the CDC updated its guidance to say that Americans who live in areas where hospitals aren't stressed can go ahead and unmask.  Will we make it to six weeks this time before that guidance is reversed again?  Anthony Fauci has been scarce on American television lately with COVID cases falling and news outlets consumed with the war in Ukraine.  But the White House is bringing him out of mothballs and dusting him off this week to remind Americans that the new CDC guidance was never meant to be permanent.  The masks can come off when cases are falling — and may have to go back on when cases are rising.

Over and out:
Pandemic over, Biden COVID czar out.  First Anthony Fauci went on walkabout.  Then an Axios-Ipsos poll showed most Americans deciding that the pandemic is over, at least as far as their tolerance for extraordinary interventions, thanks in large part to the rollback of mask mandates.  In another sign that the White House wants to get in front of voter exhaustion, Joe Biden has exchanged his political adviser as COVID czar with an actual health professional.  And it's not Anthony Fauci, either:  ["]Jeffrey D. Zients, an entrepreneur and management consultant who steered President Biden's coronavirus response through successive pandemic waves and the largest vaccination campaign in American history, plans to leave the White House in April to return to private life, President Biden said in a statement.["]

Americans deserve an apology from the medical experts.  The medical establishment has marched in lockstep on COVID-19, presenting a consensus of expertise as they marginalized physicians who had different opinions.  Two years into the pandemic, it's fair to ask, how did public health officials do?  Wash your hands like crazy (at least 20 seconds) and pour alcohol-based solutions on your grocery bags to stop COVID transmission, you were told for months.  Despite being an expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci immediately applied the influenza surface transmission model to COVID. The logical starting hypothesis should have been that COVID was aerosolized.  There are only three coronaviruses that cause serious illness in humans:  SARS, MERS and COVID.  SARS and MERS spread by air.  Why did Dr. Fauci think COVID was so different?  The NIH could have done the definitive experiment in one day to get the answer.  It's OK to be wrong in science, but not for months when the National Institutes of Health could have spent a fraction of its $42 billion budget to instantly establish how COVID spreads.

All the idiocy of Covid and vaccine mandates in one neat package.  In September, as part of his never-ending quest to ruin New York, then-Mayor Bill de Blasio required Covid jabs for adults going to indoor venues like restaurants or gyms.  Including Barclays Center, where the Nets play.  Then, in December, de Blasio extended the mandate to all private workplaces.  The mandates meant that [Kyrie] Irving couldn't play basketball at Barclays.  He was allowed to play outside New York, but in October the Nets said they wouldn't let him do that either if he couldn't play at home.  Irving was due to make $35 million this season, just shy of $400,000 a game (which made him only the third-highest paid player on the Nets, amazing but true).  Thus, every home game he missed cost him $400,000.  And I thought I was committed to staying unvaccinated.  Though the team still had to pay Irving for the road games.

The big business of false positives in medicine.  Fear is big business.  In America, the prescription and administration of nearly all medications, surgeries and vaccines are all based on fear, not science.  Are you afraid of getting cancer?  Thousands of mammograms (a.k.a. 'scammograms') turn out to be false-positives, leading patients to get expensive diagnostics run, surgery, radiation and even chemotherapy, when those "dark spots" aren't even tumors.  Are you afraid of catching and dying from COVID-19? Millions of PCR tests turn out to be false-positives, leading people to believe they have Fauci Flu, and driving them to quarantine themselves for weeks, check into super-bug-laden hospitals, wear bacteria-breeding masks 24/7, and get gene-mutation injections that literally cause lowered immune system function and blood clots.  All of this and they don't even have COVID, yet are MORE likely to catch it due to the health-decimating effects of the so-called "vaccines."

Multiple studies show [the] COVID jab for kids [is] as bad as getting the disease.  A slew of new studies have again brought to light the dangers of the COVID jab for kids, especially considering how little a risk the disease poses for young children.  Children as young as five years old in many jurisdictions have been approved to receive the jab.  When the shots were approved for kids, it was suggested by proponents that jabs were highly effective in preventing infection and severe cases.

Bedford: We Gave Away Our Freedoms 2 Years Ago, And The GOP Won't Get Them Back.  "It wasn't a virus which is not going to go away; it was the human action, the things we've surrendered," Federalist Senior Editor Christopher Bedford told Tucker Carlson on Fox News.  "And all across the entire Western world, our relationships with our own teachers, our relationships with our politicians, with our media, with our police, with our priests, even with our children and our parents have been fundamentally altered in a way that was largely chosen by our elites.  Forced upon us in a completely hypocritical fashion."  [Video clip]

78-year-old man develops gruesome skin disorder one day after second Pfizer mRNA injection, dies three months later.  Researchers at King Fahad Medical City in Riyadh published a case study in the March 2022 issue of the peer-reviewed journal Annals of Medicine and Surgery.  The abstract states that "mass vaccination remains the most critical way to halt the spread of the COVID pandemic."  Then it goes on to chronicle yet another spine-chilling, post-injection skin disease that are becoming all too common on this blog.  A 78-year-old man arrived at the King Fahad emergency room with numerous bullae (blisters) and hives all over his body.  The blisters started forming one day after the man received his second Pfizer mRNA injection.  He suffered no apparent adverse reactions from the first shot 21 days earlier.  The patient also had an abnormally high count of white blood cells called neutrophils upon checking into the ER.

Thailand Paid $45 Million in COVID Vaccine Injury Claims, While U.S. Has Paid $0.  Thailand's National Health Security Office (NHSO) as of March 8 has paid 1.509 billion baht (the equivalent of $45.65 million) to settle COVID-19 vaccine injury compensation claims.  The payouts were made to 12,714 people, including family members of some people who died as a result of the vaccine.  An additional 891 claims are pending.  A total of 15,933 claims have been filed since the start of the compensation program on May 19, 2021.  Of the 2,328 complaints that were rejected, 875 are being appealed.

The Great Pivot of Spring 2022, V. 2.0.  From where I sit, we appear to be on the threshold of yet another propaganda about-face.  The Ukraine "war" is increasingly looking like it was all about Russia having found a moment when the NATO-associated World Economic Foundation client states were distracted by other matters, and then seizing the opportunity to put a halt to the gradual assimilation of Ukraine into the NATO alliance.  If one looks at the situation from a Russian geopolitical-realpolitik frame of reference, the gradual development of a NATO-aligned state along the Russian border, replete with US-sponsored "Biolabs" that were (at best) working with biothreat agents (toxins, pathogens) collected from the Ukrainian region (and heavens knows where else), represented a legitimate threat to Russian national security.  Were those "Biolabs" more than just sample collection stations?  Russia certainly seem to think so.  The USA acknowledges the existence of these "Biolabs" but denies that they were involved in bioweapon research.  Personally, based on my professional experience, that one sticks in my craw.  Russia asserts otherwise.

'Crate Training': Adam Carolla Offers a Disturbing Explanation for Government's Masking of Kids.  [Scroll down]  Over the last two years, much of the country hasn't shown itself to be particularly slow to submission.  At times, a sizable sector of the citizenry has followed orders with very few questions.  Recently, mask mandates have lessened.  The virus is still here; nothing has changed in that regard.  Yet now, many are revealing their orifices whereas just yesterday they were vocally devoted to face-diapering.  Despite official statements, "the science" hasn't changed; nothing has been shown to that effect.  If it's safe to now go unmasked, it seems, then it was fine six months ago.  Conversely, if we were rightfully hiding our faces half a year ago, then we should be canvasing them now and for the rest of time.  Yet large numbers of people appear to be happily playing don't-ask-why Simon Says.

Rand Paul Slams Republicans Who Voted To Keep Fauci But Impeach Trump.  Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul slammed a group of five Republican senators who voted Tuesday against his amendment to remove Dr. Anthony Fauci but had once voted in favor of impeaching former President Donald Trump.  "I guess I'm not surprised that Republican senators who voted to get rid of Donald Trump voted to keep Anthony Fauci," Paul said in an exclusive statement to the Daily Caller.  "Disappointed but not surprised.  I think if Republican voters in their home states learn of this vote to keep Anthony Fauci, these voters will be very unhappy."  Republican Sens. Richard Burr of North Carolina, Susan Collins of Maine, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah and Jerry Moran of Kansas all voted against the amendment.

A nervous Fauci cites Benghazi probe to say GOP likely to come after him if they retake Congress.  Dr. Anthony Fauci is getting a little nervous.  The White House chief medical advisor, whose handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has drawn either abject endorsement or stinging rebuke depending on whom you ask, expects to face some tough questions come next year.  In an interview with The Washington Post, a mouthpiece not known for its hostility to the good doctor, Fauci speculated that he'd likely be in the hot seat if Republicans take Congress in the upcoming midterm elections. [...] Of course, Fauci has good reason to be worried.  The Republicans have made it quite clear that they intend to grill the doctor about his alleged involvement with outsourced gain-of-function research in the People's Republic of China.  Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has distinguished himself as an especially persistent critic of Dr. Fauci, enlivening otherwise dull hearings with fiery exchanges that often seem to ruffle the NIAID director's feathers.

Fauci Braces for House GOP Investigations: 'Benghazi Hearings All Over Again'.  White House COVID-19 adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said he expects to be investigated by Republicans if they take back control of the House during the 2022 midterm elections.  "It's Benghazi hearings all over again," Fauci told The Washington Post on March 15 in reference to numerous GOP lawmakers saying they will look into alleged gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, located near where the first COVID-19 cases were officially reported in late 2019.  Fauci, an unelected federal official who has headed the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984, claimed that potential hearings "will distract me from doing my job, the way it's doing right now."  Should there be hearings and an investigation, Fauci said, "there will be nothing there."

British Airways and Virgin Atlantic Embrace Freedom, Remove Mask Mandates on Flights.  British Airways has become the world's first major airline to remove mask mandates onboard the aircraft for passengers from Wednesday, in a move shortly followed by Virgin Atlantic.  Britain's second-largest airline firm announced on Tuesday that they will no longer require passengers to wear masks on board their planes and will instead allow people to "make a personal choice" on the matter.

It's at least a year too late to start asking this question.
What if the COVID-19 vaccines are not really vaccines?  Evidence has come to light strongly indicating that the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines are not really "vaccines" in the medical and legal sense of the word, but rather "experimental gene therapies."  If proven true, the significance and legal ramifications of this allegation are profound.  This article summarizes a presentation by Dr. David Martin, a national intelligence analyst and founder of IQ100 Index, a developer of linguistic genomics, and molecular biologist Dr. Judy Mikovits.  In the presentation, Dr. Martin states, "You cannot have a vaccine that doesn't claim to result in either immunity or blocking transmission."  He goes on to say, "By their own patents and reference material, neither Pfizer nor Moderna claims this.  Rather, they only classify their products as 'gene therapy.'"  Dr. Martin states the Moderna and Pfizer products "do not prevent you from getting the COVID-19 infection, nor do they prevent its spread.  They are really experimental gene therapies — unlike real vaccines, which use an antigen of the disease you're trying to prevent, the Moderna and Pfizer injections contain synthetic RNA fragments encapsulated in a nanolipid carrier compound, the sole purpose of which is to lessen clinical symptoms associated with the S-1 spike protein, not the actual virus."

Cuomo Agency Undercounted Nursing Home Deaths by 4,100.  Cuomo is blaming "cancel culture" for his downfall.  Ask the families of thousands of dead nursing home patients about cancel culture.  The latest report is the first mildly relevant report on Cuomo's mishandling of the pandemic which means that it's worth more than the lame effort by the state AG to unseat him with his inappropriate behavior with women.  ["]Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Department of Health undercounted the number of COVID-19 nursing home deaths by at least 4,100 and was unprepared to confront the deadly contagion before it ever arrived, state Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli said in an audit released Tuesday night.["]  He was however prepared to cash in on it.  The important part though isn't this part of the undercounting.  It's this part.  ["]The report also said the DOH failed to respond to federal directives to survey nursing homes for infection control problems, reporting 20% of facilities between March and May 2020, compared to more than 90% for some other states.  Throughout the audit, DiNapoli said, the DOH slow-walked requested data, limited auditors' contact with program staff and failed to provide all necessary documentation.["]  Undercounting nursing home deaths is a cover-up, but Cuomo's got his excuse there.  Failing to survey nursing homes for infection control issues actually could have contributed to nursing home deaths.

Dr. Peter McCullough:  Findings From Early COVID-19 Vaccine Studies [are] Potentially Alarming.  How safe are COVID-19 vaccines?  Should everyone be taking them?  Are people who get vaccines more likely to get COVID-19? Can genetic material in the vaccines be incorporated into the human genome?  These are some of the unknown questions that researchers around the world are currently investigating.  With more initial findings and hypotheses now released to the public, a group of free speech and information advocates last week during a presentation in Pennsylvania gave their "uncensored" take of the current science.  They are currently traveling around the United States sharing concerns about how public health policy and debate throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has been handled.  The speakers were Dr. Peter McCullough, a renowned cardiologist whose own research is highly-cited; Dr. Bryan Ardis, a chiropractor; attorney Thomas Renz; and Steve Kirsch, a Silicon Valley philanthropist who supported early efforts searching for COVID-19 treatments in medicines already on the market.

These 6 Republicans Voted Against Ousting Fauci.  Six Republican senators voted against an amendment Tuesday that would eliminate the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) position, which is held by Dr. Anthony Fauci.  Senators voted on Kentucky Republican Rand Paul's amendment to replace the NIAID with three separate national research institutes on Tuesday morning in Washington, D.C.  Republican Senators Richard Burr of North Carolina, Susan Collins of Maine, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, and Jerry Moran of Kansas each voted against the amendment.

From 15 Days to Two Years.  In March 2020, once-free citizens around the world surrendered their liberty and livelihoods in a futile attempt to "stop" a virus.  The most technologically advanced civilization in the history of mankind quickly adopted medieval fixes that bordered on quackery, sold by snake oil salesmen in the credentialied class and news media, codified through executive fiat by elected leaders of both parties.  "Just 15 days," we were told on March 16, 2020, "to slow the spread."  Do your part to promote the "common good" — the historical rallying cry of every wannabe despot — or be branded a heartless heretic.  And it worked, far better than the original architects probably anticipated.

Two Years After Lockdowns, The West's Troubles Aren't Ending — They're Just Beginning.  wo years ago this week, the United States shut down.  Churches, schools and businesses went dark.  Weddings, funerals, and birthdays went silent.  City streets stood empty, with an eeriness closer resembling occupied Paris than the bustling hubs they'd been just days before.  Two years later, as the last of the mask mandates for school children falter and crack, it's tempting to believe our nightmare is finally over.  Just as the disease is going to haunt us a long while, however, so too will the effects of how we tried to fight it.  Americans' relationships with our politicians, bureaucrats, schools, media, police, and churches are fundamentally altered.  Indeed, the entire West's relationships with these major segments of society are forever remade.  As we look out on the wreckage of two years of Covid policies, as well as our spiking fuel prices, rocketing inflation, a contested election, a Chinese Olympics, and a land war in Europe, it's increasingly clear that, far from standing at the end of a dark era, our civilization teeters unsteadily at the very beginning of one.

CDC Study of VAERS Data Finds High Incidence of COVID Vaccine Side Effects, Including Death.  Ever since the COVID-19 vaccines were first made available, open and honest discussion about them, their efficacy, and their potential side effects has been subject to big-tech censorship — particularly regarding the mRNA vaccines by Pfizer and Moderna.  But maybe now we can finally have open discourse because a new peer-reviewed study from the CDC found significant instances of death and severe side effects from the mRNA vaccines.

Massive Conflicts of Interest at the NIH Exposed.  One of the primary vehicles for kickbacks and fraud seems to be foundations associated with federal agencies.  This article will highlight and expose yet another way we are being conned and manipulated by examining the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health1 (FNIH), whose board is plastered with major Big Pharma players.  This raises serious questions about conflicts of interest, seeing how the foundation oversees the distribution of hundreds of millions of dollars — unregulated funds that typically go right back into the coffers of the drug industry.  It's a very clever strategy to extract even more funds from the American taxpayers.

Chernobyl and the Lies of COVID.  Chernobyl is back in the news because Russian troops have taken control of the area during their invasion of Ukraine.  The International Atomic Energy Agency and European nations throughout the continent are understandably nervous about this predicament, but this essay is not about those concerns.  It is about the lessons Western governments should have learned from that nearly apocalyptic event but instead ignored during the last two years of COVID mania.  As details concerning the Chernobyl disaster became available after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the West reached the inescapable conclusion that the tragedy could have occurred only in a closed off socialist system in which the State preserves its authority by maintaining a false image of always being correct and never being wrong.  The lessons were clear:
  [#1]   When "science" must be State-sanctioned, then the objectivity required to foresee and correct problems disappears.
  [#2]   When dissent and conflicting analysis are treated as "misinformation" or "disinformation," then truth is routinely treated as a lie.
  [#3]   When concerns for national security and a culture of official State secrets dominate all government operations, then censorship of facts and viewpoints prevent timely problem-solving.

COVID Care Fiasco:  The Hill-Lawrie Video.  Apparently, in late 2020, studies began to accumulate looking at the potential of the drug Ivermectin in the treatment of SARS Co-V2.  This antiparasitic agent was also known to have antiviral properties.  This attracted the attention of both the WHO and Dr. Lawrie's organization.  The WHO contracted with Dr. Hill to evaluate the data, and independently, the Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy took on the same task.  This involved performing a meta-analysis.  This is a process where studies on a topic are collected and are analyzed for their quality.  This includes how rigorous was the method, and the potential for bias.  The best studies are pooled and the results analyzed.  There are very well-established protocols for this.  Both Dr. Hill and Dr. Lawrie completed separate analyses and the results for both were exciting.  There seemed to be a real benefit to using Ivermectin as a treatment for COVID.  Both concluded that the reduction in deaths could be as much as 60 to 85%.  Both were comfortable with the quality of their results.  According to Dr. Lawrie, they compared notes and together pledged to push hard for the rapid approval of the drug, given the prevailing pandemic.

17 reasons why it is irrational to trust the medical community regarding the covid vaccines.  [#16] Every specific claim made regarding the vaccines so far has ultimately proven to be false.  Here are just a few of the many specific claims made about the vaccines by the medical community that have since been resoundingly debunked:
  •   The injected serum of the vaccine will stay in the area of the injection site
  •   The spike proteins will remain tethered to the cell membrane and won't escape into circulation
  •   The spike protein is not biologically active
  •   The spike protein has no significant toxicities
  •   No corners were cut in the development or trials of the vaccines
  •   There were no life-altering SAE's in the Pfizer kids trial
  •   The lipid nanoparticles are safe and won't circulate all over the anatomy
  •   The vaccines confer superior immunity to natural infection
  •   The vaccines prevent infection & transmission
  •   There are no serious side effects associated with the vaccines
  •   there is no plausible mechanism or basis by which the vaccines can affect fertility
  •   reports of menstrual irregularities are exaggerated and fake
  •   VAERS reports are mostly submitted by random people who are simply assuming without any basis that a random adverse event that happened after vaccination is related to the vaccine
  •   The CDC investigated all of the VAERS reports of death and determined that none were attributable to the vaccine
  •   There is no need for long term observation to determine that there are no serious long term effects
  •   99% of the hospitalizations for covid are unvaccinated patients
  •   There is no basis for a causal link between myocarditis and the vaccines
  •   Myocarditis is an exceedingly rare complication from the vaccines, and everyone is more likely to get myocarditis from covid than from the vaccines
In Short:  Every specific thing they said about the vaccines that can be adjudicated so far has turned out to be demonstrably false.  Why would anyone trust someone on a topic where everything they say is wrong?

Ursula von der Leyen suspected of 'serious conflicts of interest' by MEPs.  The initiative was launched by AfD MEP Christine Anderson and Romanian Christian Democrat Cristian-Vasile Terhes.  Other representatives of the AfD, EPP, FPÖ, but also the Greens and the Left are also on board.  The cross-party initiative demands, among other things, the resignation of EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.  She is accused of having been involved in a "gigantic Covid 19 scientific fraud".  The EU's vaccination campaign, they say, threatens democracy, freedom and human rights in Europe.  The European policy spokesman of the AfD parliamentary group in the Bavarian state parliament, Martin Böhm, sees the initiative in the larger context of the staged "pandemic" of the last two years.  Böhm explained:  "The exclusion of the unvaccinated, the threat of compulsory vaccination, the restrictions on freedom of work, movement and education, and the violation of patient confidentiality have undermined the trust of millions of people in democratic institutions.  Now more and more details from the prehistory of the global pandemic scandal are coming to light.

Rand Paul vows to remove 'dictator in chief' Fauci from NIAID.  Sen. Rand Paul said he will introduce an amendment to remove Dr. Anthony Fauci as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases — saying no one should be "dictator in chief."  Paul (R-Ky.), who often feuded with Fauci at Senate hearings over the administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic, said American "lives were held captive by petty tyrants and power-hungry bureaucrats" over the past two years.  "We've learned a lot over the past two years, but one lesson in particular is that no one person should be deemed 'dictator in chief.'  No one person should have unilateral authority to make decisions for millions of Americans," Paul, an ophthalmologist, wrote in an op-ed on Fox News Monday.  "To ensure that ineffective, unscientific lockdowns and mandates are never foisted on the American people ever again, I will introduce an amendment to eliminate Dr. Anthony Fauci's position as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and divide his power into three separate new institutes," the senator continued.

Biden triggers GOP backlash with federal mask mandate extension.  The Biden administration announced an extension to the federal mask mandate for airplanes, airports, and public transit, upsetting a host of critics who cheered the end of COVID-19 restrictions in blue states and public buildings.  President Joe Biden conducted a mask-optional State of the Union address, and the White House went maskless days later as the nation began moving out of the panic phase of the pandemic.  Nonetheless, passengers in almost anything but a private vehicle will be required to wear a mask until at least April 18, the fourth extension of a mandate introduced soon after Biden took office.

I&I/TIPP Poll: 65% Say Recent Lifting Of COVID Restrictions Is Driven By 'Politics,' Not 'Science'.  As COVID deaths wane and the virus appears to be losing its virulence, restrictions imposed during the height of the pandemic are beginning to be lifted.  The latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows that most Americans believe the restrictions are largely being eased for political reasons, not science.  The latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows strong sentiment in favor of ending the limits imposed on Americans' lives due to the COVID pandemic.  Among those queried, 29% they felt that restrictions were being lifted "too slowly," while 29% said they were being taken down "at the right time."  Less than a third, or 32%, said they thought restrictions were coming off "too fast."  And 10% were unsure.

New Rules on Extremism — DHS Will Target Anyone Who Believes Election Was Stolen or Who Challenged Fauci's Everchanging COVID Narrative.  In Joe Biden's first year in office over 2 million illegal aliens from dozens of countries walked into the United States across the southern border.  The numbers this year look even greater.  Joe Biden and DHS Secretary Mayorkas immediately opened up the US southern border after they came into office.  Biden also set another record.  Only 59,011 illegals were deported his first year in office.  This was the lowest number since 1995.

The Continued Politicization of COVID.  From the beginning of COVID two years ago, health authorities and the media have been preaching "follow the science," but what they don't say is that it's not medical science that they are following but instead political science.  How else does one explain sudden new rules and recommendations, contradicting past "settled science," regarding everything from natural immunity and off label therapeutics to the futility of masks and social distancing.  It seems that overnight the science changed with this viral pandemic due to an upcoming election and the convenient distraction of Russian-Ukrainian war.  Does anyone doubt that COVID would have played out far differently in 2020 if it had been President Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders running for reelection rather than Donald Trump?

Documentary shows how COVID restrictions imposed 'fear,' increased 'control' over people.  The film Planet Lockdown explores this unprecedented time in history, speaking with epidemiologists, scientists, doctors and other experts to uncover the real motives behind the increasing totalitarian control taking over the globe.  Already banned by Facebook and YouTube, the film starts at the beginning of the pandemic, when we were told lockdowns were necessary to "flatten the curve."  This was supposed to be a short-term, 15-day event in the U.S., but the narrative soon changed to ongoing restrictions.  As Michael Yeadon, Ph.D., a former vice-president and chief scientific adviser of the drug company Pfizer and founder and CEO of the biotech company Ziarco, now owned by Novartis, explained, people have historically quarantined the sick, but quarantining healthy people, as has occurred for the past two years, has no scientific backing or historic precedence.

MLB players who refused COVID shot won't get paid for missed games in Canada: report.  Major League Baseball (MLB) players who have chosen not to take one of the abortion-tainted COVID shots will likely not get paid for missed games due to Canada's vaccine passport system.  The latest collective bargaining agreement reportedly does not protect players who cannot travel to play the Toronto Blue Jays due to Canada's restriction on visitors who have declined to get jabbed.  The MLB season starts April 7.

Obama Announces He Has COVID - Then Drops Some Huge Misinformation.  On Sunday, former President Barack Obama announced on Twitter that he has tested positive for COVID.  [Tweet] [...] According to a "source," CNN says he appears to have caught it in Washington, D.C., after spending most of the winter in Hawaii.  But if you check out his Facebook announcement, there's a small problem in that one.  He says that people should get vaccinated and boosted "to help prevent more serious symptoms and giving COVID to others."  [Tweet]  You can spread the virus even if you are vaccinated — and you can still get it, even if you are vaccinated.  So, this is just straight-up misinformation from Obama.  Where is the misinformation police to flag his post?  Apparently, this misinformation is cool because it's from Barack Obama.

'Triple-jabbed' Obama tests positive for COVID, but is he lying about shot?  Although he claims to be vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19, Barack Obama announced Sunday he has tested positive for the coronavirus, and is showing some symptoms.  "I just tested positive for COVID," Obama said on Twitter.

The Editor says...
Hmmm.  Which is more likely:  The so-called vaccine doesn't work, or Obama is lying about having been injected with it?

Pfizer COVID Vaccine Has 1,291 Side Effects Reveals Released Documents.  When Pfizer applied for FDA approval, they were aware of almost 158,000 adverse events.  This really does not paint them in a favorable light.  And now, it's been officially reported that Pfizer's COVID vaccine has 1,291 side effects according to released documents.  In January, a judge ordered the FDA to provide clinical data on the COVID vaccinations, which resulted in the disclosure of 55,000 pages of documentation.  The FDA had planned to keep the data hidden for 75 years until releasing it in 2096 because, well, the FDA is essentially a criminal conspiracy.  The COVID vaccinations never should have been licensed in the first place.

Covid infections in Britain are rising again, and 90 percent of the dead are vaccinated.  In February, 90 percent of the 1,000 Britons who died each week of Covid were vaccinated.  New infections are not only far higher than they were before the Omicron variant emerged, they are rising again after a brief fall in February.  And even boosters appear to offer no protection against hospitalizations in younger people.  British data are crucial both because Britain vaccinated and boosted early and because its datasets are far more complete and less politicized than those in the United States.  Day by day, week by week, the figures are becoming more worrisome.  They hint that mRNA and DNA shots may have slowed if not completely halted the natural progression to herd immunity that occurred in earlier respiratory virus epidemics.  In fact, Britain now reports 99 percent of adults have antibodies to Covid, mostly as the result of vaccination.  That level is far higher than epidemiologists believed would be necessary to support herd immunity.  Yet Covid infections, hospitalizations, and deaths continue unabated.

Neurological Injuries Soar After Shots : Strokes, Bel's Palsy, Paralysis, MS.  An examination of the FDA and CDC's Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) confirms that deaths and injuries due to neurological issues following COVID-19 injections have skyrocketed, when compared to the same adverse events reported following all FDA-approved vaccines for the previous 30 years.  And while none of the U.S. Health Agencies have published or made public their research on these post-vaccine neurological injuries, many medical journals have.  The COVID-19 experimental vaccines, which were given emergency use authorization illegally, should have been immediately pulled from the market at least a year ago.

Judge Unseals 400 Pages of Evidence, Clears Way for Pfizer Whistleblower Lawsuit.  A whistleblower lawsuit alleging fraud during Pfizer's COVID vaccine trials is moving forward, after a district court judge unsealed the complaint, including 400 pages of exhibits.  Brook Jackson in January 2021 sued Pfizer and two companies the drugmaker contracted with to work on the trials:  Ventavia Research Group and ICON PLC.  Jackson worked for Ventavia for a brief period in 2020 before being fired after she filed a complaint with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over alleged improprieties she observed during the vaccine trials.

Official New Zealand Ministry of Health Data shows the Fully Vaccinated are developing Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome.  The New Zealand Ministry of Health are presenting Covid-19 data in a way that misleadingly suggests the Covid-19 injections are extremely effective, and they are deceivingly doing their upmost to ensure you cannot prove otherwise.  But as is always the case here at The Expose, where there is a will, there is a way, and we have managed to uncover the true nature of the current Covid-19 situation in New Zealand according to the Ministry of Health's buried statistics, and the data strongly suggests the fully vaccinated are developing Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). [...] The problem we're seeing here is that the immune system isn't returning to its original and natural state.  If it was then the outcomes of infection with Covid-19 would be similar to the outcomes among the not-vaccinated/one dose vaccinated population.  Instead, it continues to decline at a rate that means the not-vaccinated population have a better performing immune system, so this means the Covid-19 injections are decimating the immune systems of the fully vaccinated.

CDC/FDA Smoking Gun of Smoking Guns.  They confess: they had no virus when they concocted the test for the virus; they "contrived" a model by pretending to find what they wanted to find; it's called a self-fulfilling prophecy[.]  This is the con and the crime that drove millions of lives, and economies, into ruin[.]

The CDC Has Been Warned a 'Criminal' Fraud Investigation is 'Ready to Go' After Midterm Elections.  Dr. Robert Malone, a noted mRNA vaccine researcher, and Dr. Peter McCullough, one of the most-published medical doctors in the world, gave a joint statement to The New American on Friday where they accused the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention of perpetrating "criminal" fraud.  Watch:  "In my opinion, withholding scientific data constitutes fraud," Dr. Malone argued.  "This is scientific fraud.  In my opinion, if I was to publish a study in which I had a large body of epidemiologic data, and I decided to only public publish part of it because I wanted to advance some agenda, I would be guilty of scientific fraud.  The paper would be withdrawn.  I would be kicked out of my academic institution.  I would be guilty of scientific fraud.  That's what this is."  "And the CDC has, I've watched it over the years, become more and more and more a political arm and not serving its function," he continued.  "This is the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.  They are the archive of information that physicians have relied on for decades through the MMWR publication.  They are the ones that are responsible for providing us the frontline data about what's going on and where it's happening and they have stopped performing that function."

WHO is World Government.  Power grab scheduled for May 1, 2022.  "The fact that they are suddenly distancing themselves from restrictions is just a game.  The last week of January 2022 WHO held an emergency meeting and deliberations in Geneva on expanding its powers to take over all member states in the event of a pandemic and "any other form of threat or disaster".  WHO wants member states to sign a new treaty on Covid-19, which expands the 2005 treaty.  Once signed by the Ministers of Health, the WHO Constitution (according to its Article 9) takes precedence over a country's constitution (189 countries have signed the 2005 treaty) during natural disasters or pandemics.  Since the definition of pandemic was changed a few years ago (cases based on the PCR test), they can enforce obedience in any country and impose WHO guidelines on the public, which will be mandatory, not just recommended.  And that sounds like power over the country and the world."

Kids in Fresno are still Forced to Eat Outside on the Ground Wearing Masks while six feet Apart.  Yet another example showing that teachers and school boards [don't care] about the kids they're supposed to be looking out for.  Thankfully this woman caught the child abuse on camera showing kids being forced to eat their lunch while sitting on the ground and wearing masks.  They're supposed to lift the mask up to take bites of their food.  They must all stay 6 ft apart as well, despite the Democrat governor lifting most restrictions for adults so people could attend the Superbowl, they left all of the ridiculous rules in place for children.  [Video clip]

When Do We Get Our Apologies?  Respiratory virus transmission is impossible to stop — a lesson New Zealand, Hong Kong and China are still learning.  Attempts to suppress the spread are futile.  Such measures usually lead to unintended (perhaps, but certainly predictable) consequences that can be more devastating than the virus itself.  Normal life is upended, worsening health for those who are most ill, isolating the already lonely elderly, destroying educational and social development for children, leading to more drug and alcohol abuse and greater mental health issues.  These harms go on for years and decades.  None of this was mysterious or unknown.  Any thoughtful, calm, rational response would have recognized these basic facts and issues.  But instead we were served a hysterical, lemming-like overreaction which in the end did not protect most of the population from being infection or many from serious disease.  On behalf of the public, I would like an apology from those responsible for the disastrous handling of the epidemic response.

Did flawed PCR tests convince us Covid was worse than it really was?  It has been one of the most enduring Covid conspiracy theories: that the 'gold standard' PCR tests used to diagnose the virus were picking up people who weren't actually infected.  Some even suggested the swabs, which have been carried out more than 200 million times in the UK alone, may mistake common colds and flu for corona.  If either, or both, were true, it would mean many of these cases should never have been counted in the daily tally — that the ominous and all-too-familiar figure, which was used to inform decisions on lockdowns and other pandemic measures, was an over-count.  And many of those who were 'pinged' and forced to isolate as a contact of someone who tested positive — causing a huge strain on the economy — did so unnecessarily.  Such statements, it must be said, have been roundly dismissed by top experts.  And those scientists willing to give credence such concerns have been shouted down on social media, accused of being 'Covid-deniers', and even sidelined by colleagues.  But could they have been right all along?

Dialectical Faucism.  In response to plunging polls, Joe Biden wants to roll back the public health security state but keep his emergency powers.  The key figure in that quest is White House advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, profiled at length in The Real Anthony Fauci, by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.  Fauci earned a medical degree in 1966 but in 1968 hired on with the National Institutes of Health.  Dr. Fauci's bio showed no advanced degrees in molecular biology or biochemistry, but in 1984 he became head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).  According to Nobel laureate Kary Mullis, inventor of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), Fauci did not understand electron microscopy, did not understand medicine, and was thus unqualified for the post.  Fauci's prediction that AIDS would ravage the general population was hopelessly wrong, but he remained at the helm of NIAID, steadily gaining power.

U.S. Funds Ukrainian Former Bioweapons Facility Handling 'Dangerous Materials... With Windows Wide Open'.  A Ukrainian biolab receiving funds from the U.S. government was formerly a bioweapons factory under the control of the Soviet Union, with experts recently reporting a "lack of modern biosafety equipment" as well as "lethal microbes that in the West would be locked away in high-containment laboratories," the National Pulse can reveal. [...] The news follows Biden State Department official Victoria Nuland telling the U.S. Senate that the American government is concerned about biological research facilities falling into Russian hands as a result of the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe, despite the department appearing to correct her testimony the following day.  The unearthed article also confirms a previous National Pulse report revealing how former President Barack Obama spearheaded negotiations leading to the lab eventually receiving U.S. government funds as part of a memorandum of understanding with the U.S. Department of Defense.

Disgraced CDC director uses CNN reports to conjure up COVID mandates, harming countless lives in the process.  During the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) scandal, it's obvious the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) derived many of their policies of subjugation and segregation on pharmaceutical propaganda and CNN reports.  CDC director Rochelle Walensky admitted this in a recent lecture at Washington University in Saint Louis.  The lecture was titled "Lessons from the Pandemic for the future of Public Health."  Walensky recalled getting the news from CNN that the vaccine was "95 percent effective."  The CDC used this fake news propaganda to create policies of coercion and subjugation, advertising to the public that the vaccine was the only way out of lockdown and isolation.  At the lecture, Dr. Walensky was asked how the CDC could have improved over the past two years.  "Um... well, you know I think... I can tell you where I was when the CNN feed came that it was 95 percent effective... um the vaccine.  So many of us wanted to be hopeful.  So many of us wanted to say, 'Okay, this is our ticket out, right, now we're done,'" Walensky jabbered.

Was It Professor Andrew Owen Who Blocked Ivermectin as A Treatment for Covid?  Over one year ago, there were ample peer-reviewed, randomised controlled trials that provided strong evidence on ivermectin's efficacy as a treatment for Covid in every disease phase.  A paper considering these many studies was written by lead author Dr. Andrew Hill at the University of Liverpool for the World Health Organisation ("WHO").  Dr. Hill was an early and vigorous proponent for ivermectin.  His paper showed that ivermectin could reduce deaths by 75% if used throughout the world.  Inexplicably, just days before its publication, the paper appeared on a pre-print server, with its conclusions changed.  Given the totality of scientific evidence for ivermectin, it was a stunning — actually shocking — reversal by Dr. Hill.

Texas Rangers Raid County Administration Building After What Commissioners Inside Allegedly Did.  The Texas Rangers were called in Friday to search the offices of Harris County officials in connection with an investigation into possible corruption linked to a contract to provide COVID-19 vaccinations.  Although officials said Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo's offices were not searched, computers and phones used by at least two staff members were seized, according to KHOU-TV.  "A judge signed search warrants, which are legal authorization to search for and seize potential evidence of a crime," said Dane Schiller with the Harris County District Attorney's Office.  "Out of fairness for all parties involved, we have no additional comment at this time."

Chicago Mayor warns cops and city workers they'll be put on no-pay status if they don't get first dose of Covid vaccine by Sunday.  Chicago city workers who don't have their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, a group that includes about 2,800 cops, will be placed on nondisciplinary no-pay status on Sunday after the city won another court battle over its mandate last week.  The city will consider disciplining workers on a case-by-base basis, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Friday [3/11/2022].  'All city employees, including Chicago police officers, who fail to comply may also face disciplinary action, up to and including termination.  These decisions will be addressed at an individual and department level, and are being undertaken in a manner that will not impact public safety or the continuity of everyday government operations,' the mayor said.

Biden Will Extend Mask Mandate on Planes and Trains to April 18.  There's stupid.  There's silly.  And then there's the federal government's mask requirement on public transit.  Masks have contributed in no small way to the spike in "unruly" passenger complaints from airlines.  It's usually started by some busybody who claims someone isn't wearing their mask correctly or took it off.  What follows usually isn't very pretty.  Why is this even an issue after the CDC said that cloth masks are not effective in stopping the spread of the coronavirus?  Unless United Airlines and other carriers are going to hand out the more effective N-95 masks to passengers and flight personnel, there is no purpose whatsoever to forcing passengers to mask up.

New Study Confirms Ivermectin Outperforms Other Options.  At nearly no other time in history has there been this level of fear generated across the world as experienced thus far in 2020 and 2021.  The depth and breadth of the strategies used to stoke those fears has been overwhelming.  Emergency use authorizations for drugs that have not proven to be effective in trials, public mask mandates for which there is no scientific evidence and the suppression and censorship of health information has boosted public fear over a viral illness with a survival rate of over 99%.  Unfortunately, many of the early effective treatment strategies that can be used at home have also fallen victim to censorship.  Ivermectin is one of those strategies.  In a computational analysis of the Omicron variant against several therapeutic agents, data show that ivermectin had the best results.  Yet, as you look objectively at what's been happening across the world, the fear being generated is not one-sided.  The suppression of information by corporations, government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry is one indication of their concern and how far they're willing to go to ensure the level of fear remains high enough to manipulate behavior.

COVID-1984: 600,000 Italians Set to Receive Fines for Being Unvaccinated.  Around 600,000 Italians over the age of 50 are set to receive a fine for being unvaccinated despite the Italian government reviewing a loosening of various Wuhan virus restrictions.  In January, the Italian government decided to make vaccination mandatory for all residents over the age of 50, with the mandate coming into effect in February.  At least 600,000 Italians have been referred to the Italian tax agency and are expected to receive a 100 euro (£84/$110) fine.

Children in China Diagnosed With Leukemia After Taking Chinese Vaccines.  After receiving her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, Li Jun's 4-year-old developed a fever and coughs, which quickly subsided after intravenous therapy at the hospital.  But after the second shot, the father could tell something was wrong.  Swelling appeared around his daughter's eyes and did not go away.  For weeks, the girl complained about pains on her legs, where bruises started to emerge seemingly out of nowhere.  In January, a few weeks after the second dose, the 4-year-old was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.  "My baby was perfectly healthy before the vaccine dose," Li (an alias), from China's north-central Gansu Province, told The Epoch Times.  "I took her for a health check.  Everything was normal."  He is among hundreds of Chinese that belong to a social media group claiming to be suffering from or have a household member suffering from leukemia, developed after taking Chinese vaccines.  Eight of them confirmed the situation when reached by The Epoch Times.  Names of the interviewees have been withheld to protect their safety.

US Funded Weapons Biolabs in Ukraine, Ironically Contained the Same Bat Virus that Shut Down the World the Last 2 Years.  It appears as if the US Government has some dirt on its hands in regards to the virus that caused the world to shut down, if you want to take this Russian report as fact.  This report comes just a day after the US admitted it had biolabs in Ukraine and within hours began denying their own peoples reports.  The confusion around the biolabs could be by design to confuse people, or it could be the fact this White House and Fake president have no clue wtf they're doing.  [Video clip]

Lawsuit seeks $6 million in damages for each plaintiff over Boston's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  A group of people in Boston is suing the city for $6 million each in damages over the negative effects of the city government's Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine mandate for private businesses.  The 16 plaintiffs, all residents of Massachusetts, stated that the vaccine mandate was unconstitutional and violated their constitutional rights, including their rights to equal treatment and protection.  The plaintiffs filed the lawsuit on Monday, March 7, with the Massachusetts District Court.  The lawsuit listed the Boston Public Health Commission, its Executive Director Dr. Bisola Ojikutu and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu as defendants.  The lawsuit was an amendment to a lawsuit originally designed to block the city's vaccine mandate.  It was filed several hours before city officials lifted the mandate and several weeks before the mask mandate was rescinded.  According to the plaintiffs, the amended complaint was filed because "injunctive relief is no longer available."

CDC head laughs about having had 'too little caution and too much optimism' in now-failed COVID vaccines.  The COVID theater curtain is closing, and nothing makes it more obvious than a recent interview with Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Although couched in giggles and approval-seeking glances, Walensky's remarks last week to an interviewer at Washington University School of Medicine reveal an astonishing level of ignorance and incompetence at the top levels of pandemic response.

Three Novavax adverse reaction cases in Australia have similarities.  The biggest red flag with the Novavax injections (aka Nuvaxovid, Covovax and NVX-CoV2373) is that the company is based in Maryland.  But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") still has not approved the company's emergency use authorization request for domestic use.  It doesn't help that Senate Republicans, in the absence of post-injection stroke Democrat Ben Luján, passed a resolution last week, 48-47, to end the so-called COVID-19 emergency.  President Joe Biden said he would veto the bill in the unlikely event it got through the House of Representatives.  Meanwhile Indonesia was the first country to authorize Novavax for emergency use in November.  The Philippines followed suit shortly thereafter.  The European Union authorized it in December.  Australia, India, South Korea and the United Kingdom have also authorized the shots for emergency use.

7-Year-Old Died of Cardiac Arrest 13 Days After Pfizer Shot, VAERS Data Show.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released new data showing a total of 1,168,894 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and March 4, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).  VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.  The data included a total of 25,158 reports of deaths — an increase of 331 over the previous week — and 203,888 reports of serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 3,557 compared with the previous week.  Excluding "foreign reports" to VAERS, 783,282 adverse events, including 11,505 deaths and 75,286 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and March 4, 2022.  Foreign reports are reports foreign subsidiaries send to U.S. vaccine manufacturers.  Under U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, if a manufacturer is notified of a foreign case report that describes an event that is both serious and does not appear on the product's labeling, the manufacturer is required to submit the report to VAERS.

This Is Why Ukraine Is Important, One Person's Opinion.  US Under Secretary for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland recently admitted there are Bio Labs in Ukraine and Russians want them.  Why are these labs important?  The Left wants to control scientific research, especially anything conducted at Level 3 and Level 4 labs.  Ms. Winters found deleted documents that are still available on the Wayback Machine and elsewhere.  One of the documents explains Barack Obama entered into an agreement with Ukrainian counterparts to establish such a lab in Odesa.  A report uncovered the fact that they are "especially dangerous pathogens" and the manipulations they were doing to them.  It is indisputable that the Department of Defense was involved in the construction and maintenance of these labs.  It is unclear what they were working on in these labs.

Is the U.S. Promoting Worldwide Bioterrorism?  On Thursday, March 9, the U.S. undersecretary of state for political affairs stated that there was biological research taking place in Ukraine.  Then, in a follow-up question by Sen. Marco Rubio, she stated emphatically that if any biological material from that lab were used in an act of biological warfare, it would surely come from Russia.  While there is a distinction between biological research and biological warfare research, the very fact that the answer and follow-up question alluded to using material from that lab in a biological attack shows that the pathogens in that lab can be weaponized.  Further, we know that biological weapons of mass destruction were proposed to the U.N. way back in 2002 by then-Secretary of State Colin Powell as an excuse for invading Iraq.  So, the admission that there is a biological research lab that has material that could be used as bioweapons could easily be used as an excuse by Russia for invading Ukraine.  However, it cannot be used as justification for the war crime of Russia's bombing a maternity hospital or other atrocities that are already taking place.

The Lancet Paper Adverse Events are not Insignificant.  [Scroll down]  The Lancet paper documents the percent of severe adverse events (6.6%), compared to non-severe adverse events (92.1%).  BTW — death was a separate category determined to be around 1.3% of all adverse events.  So, what does this mean?  A severe event ratio (including death) of 7.9% of all reported adverse events is high — very high!  That means that about 1 in 13 people has a severe adverse event out of all adverse events reported, as defined by the VAERS system (quote from the Lancet paper [...]):  "VAERS reports were classified as serious if any of the following outcomes were documented:  inpatient hospitalisation, prolongation of hospitalisation, permanent disability, life-threatening illness, congenital anomaly or birth defect, or death."  One out of every eight reported adverse events were classified as serious!  But "somehow" what the Medscape Headline concludes is that the side effects are "mild and short."  This is just not accurate.

New York Times Beclowns Itself with COVID Doublespeak.  Does anyone take the New York Times seriously anymore?  Because if anyone does, I got a real doozy for you.  Wednesday's "The Morning" newsletter ran a piece asking "Do Covid Precautions Work?" and then answered the question in the subtitle "Yes, but they haven't made a big difference."  [Tweet]  So, they work ... but they don't.  Let's be honest here.  The answer is no.  The New York Times knows the answer was no.  But the New York Times being the New York Times didn't want to say that COVID precautions didn't work.  Why not?  Probably because they're worried about getting banned by Facebook or something, so they had to go through the awkward contortion of acknowledging that the data says masking and social distancing and whatnot didn't significantly change the trajectory of the pandemic, while also saying that they did.

Austria suspends COVID vaccine mandate for adults because the coercion wasn't working.  Austria has suspended a controversial law requiring adults in the country to be injected with the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.  Officials argued that the law would infringe on fundamental rights had its implementation was not stopped.  Austrian Minister for the European Union and the Constitution Karoline Edtstadler told reporters during a March 9 press conference that the law represents "an encroachment of fundamental rights" that can no longer be justified.  Thus, the law will no longer take effect — contrary to Vienna's earlier assertion that the controversial measure will take effect by the middle of the month.  "After consultations with the Health Minister [Wolfgang Mueckstein], we have decided that we will, of course, follow what the [expert] commission has said.  We see no need to actually implement this compulsory vaccination due to the [B11529 omicron] variant that we are predominantly experiencing here," she said.

Biden Bars Tennis Star Novak Djokovic From Entering US Over Vaccine Status, While 2 Million Illegal Immigrants Enter Without Proof of Vax.  Tennis star Novak Djokovic has already announced he is willing to sacrifice his career in favor of not getting a Covid vaccine.  After missing out on the Australian Open due to his vaccination status, the 34-year-old tennis legend has announced he will also be unable to participate in the upcoming U.S. tournaments because the Biden regime won't permit him to travel to the United States. [...] Djokovic has made it very clear that he will not be getting the Covid vaccine, although it may mean he is forced to miss both the French Open and Wimbledon.  It is worth mentioning the hypocrisy of all this Covid theater, given that over 2 million illegal immigrants have been let into the U.S. since last year without having to present so much as an ID, let alone a vaccine card.

Massachusetts to Reduce 'Significant Overcount' of COVID-19 Deaths.  The Massachusetts Public Health Department announced Thursday that the state would lower its COVID-19 death count by 3,700 due to new measuring criteria being implemented.  The department said in a statement the new death definition is following the guidance (pdf) of the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to create a standardized approach for states to count COVID-19 deaths.  "Our approach proved to be too expansive and led to a significant overcount of deaths in Massachusetts," Public Health Commissioner Margret Cooke told the State House News Service.

Forget About Covid, They Say.  Rationality is back!  In that sense, it's good to forget about Covid if it means living life normally and behaving with clarity about what does and does not work to mitigate a virus.  The Democrats decided that the hyper-restrictionist ways were risking political fortunes.  Hence, the line and the talking points needed to change.  Another way to get over Covid is to forget completely about the last two years, especially the astonishing failures of compulsory pandemic controls.  Forget about the school closures that cost a generation two years of learning.  Forget that the hospitals were largely closed to people without a Covid-related malady.  Forget about the preventable nursing-home deaths.  Forget that dentistry was practically abolished for a few months, or that one could not even get a haircut.  Forget the stay-at-home orders, the church and business closures, the playground and gym closures, the bankruptcies, the travel restrictions, the firings, the crazed advice for everyone to mask up and physically separate, the record drug-related deaths, the mass depression, the segregation, the brutalization of small business, the labor-force dropouts, the forced stoppages of art and culture, and the capacity limits on venues that forced weddings and funerals to be on Zoom.  Forget about a closer look at the bogus mathematical models, vaccine trials, the circumstances behind the Emergency Use Authorizations, the adverse effects, the inaccuracies of the PCR test, and misclassification of deaths, the billions and trillions of misdirected funds, the division of all workers between essential and nonessential, and the millions who were forced to get jabs they did not want.

Do not trust Biden's COVID home tests.  Like many others, I worked hard to get a big supply of rapid COVID home test kits, mostly free from my county and the federal government.  But so far, I have not used any because neither my wife nor I have had any symptoms.  But millions of Americans surely fell into the trap of thinking it wise to use the tests regularly to feel safe after a negative result.  This is what we should understand:  Testing millions of healthy people on a large-scale basis won't help anyone.  These home tests have not effectively stopped COVID transmission and deaths.  Many millions of these rapid antigen tests, at a cost of billions of dollars, are now in most American homes.  The federal government and many local organizations have been making them available without charge.  But newly published research from the U.K. sheds a very dark shadow on their usefulness.

As TSA Extends Mask Mandate, Rand Paul Vows To Force Vote To Scrap It.  After the TSA announced Thursday that it will extend the mask mandate on public transportation and inside transportation hubs, Senator Rand Paul promised to force a vote to end it urging "we're about two years past anyone believing the masks work."  A TSA official told the media that it is leaving the mask mandate in place until at least April 18th, saying it is "at CDC's recommendation."  "CDC will work with government agencies to help inform a revised policy framework for when, and under what circumstances, masks should be required in the public transportation corridor," the official also noted, adding "This revised framework will be based on the COVID-19 community levels, risk of new variants, national data, and the latest science."  All U.S. states apart from Hawaii, which will end theirs later this month, have already ended mask mandates, yet the Biden administration wants to extend federal mandates for planes and trains.

Mask mandates don't work, so they will be extended.  Mask mandates on public transport have been extended for another month even though they don't work[.]  The CDC has directed the TSA to extend the public transportation mask mandate for another 30 days until April 18 according to this CNN article. [...] Here is the science behind this decision, a list of studies showing that transmission on public transportation is a major component of viral spread and showing that face masks effectively mediate that risk:

In fact, if you have to be indoors, being on board a commercial jet is probably one of the safest places you can be because the recycled air is filtered with HEPA filters, the cabin air is recycled every 3 minutes, and there is a high portion of outside air mixed in the filtered inside air.

Latest flu vaccine was ineffective during the 2021-2022 season.  The flu shot used during the 2021 to 2022 virus season was a poor match and did little to prevent circulation, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report finds.  Researchers found that the vaccine only reduced the number of mild influenza by 16 percent, which they do not consider statistically significant.  The flu strain that struck America this year was of the H3N2 strain, one of the more dangerous versions of the virus, and the shot was not tailored to the specific version of the virus that ended up emerging.

Project Veritas Documents Destroy Fauci:  Ivermectin Works And Gov't Hid Life-Saving Truth.  Military documents state that EcoHealth Alliance approached DARPA in March 2018 seeking funding to conduct gain of function research of bat borne coronaviruses.  The proposal, named Project Defuse, was rejected by DARPA over safety concerns and the notion that it violates the gain of function research moratorium.  The main report regarding the EcoHealth Alliance proposal leaked on the internet a couple of months ago, it has remained unverified until now.  Project Veritas has obtained a separate report to the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, written by U.S. Marine Corp Major, Joseph Murphy, a former DARPA Fellow.

Three Reasons Why Trump Shouldn't Run for President in 2024.  [Scroll down]  Time can only illuminate how wrong the government's "health experts" have been about everything when it comes to COVID.  We shut down the country over a disease that we knew, almost immediately, only severely affected the very old and immunocompromised.  Donald Trump supported the national shutdown to flatten the curve.  Then he shut everything down until Easter of 2020, opening the door to a level of tyranny that has never before been seen in America.  Trump had supported the lockdowns, then the masks, then the vaccines, and then the boosters.  Here the truth that Republicans can, should, and will run on in 2022 and 2024.  Masks don't work, and have never worked.  There's not a single place on the planet where they have.  The vaccines may be efficacious in preventing hospitalization or death, but they do not prevent infection or transmission as was promised.  And boosters?  They've proven so obviously ineffective that they're rarely mentioned anymore, even by the most zealous of the Fauci faithful.

United Airlines to Let Workers Who Didn't Get COVID-19 Vaccine Return to Work.  United Airlines plans to let workers who declined to get a COVID-19 vaccine return to work, according to a missive obtained by The Epoch Times.  Unvaccinated employees can return to their positions on March 28, according to the memorandum, which was sent to workers on Thursday morning [3/10/2022].  Kirk Limacher, vice president of human resources at United, said the change was due to the plunge in COVID-19 cases and COVID-19-related hospitalizations across the country in recent weeks.  Many states and cities are lifting COVID-19 restrictions, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention dramatically eased its masking guidance, he noted.  "These changes suggest that the pandemic is beginning to meaningfully recede.  As a result, we're confident we can safely begin the process of returning our RAP employees to their jobs," Limacher wrote.

Time to Stop Making the National Guard a COVID Band-Aid.  Placing National Guard medical personnel in remote hospitals to supplement medical workers is a fallacious idea if you understand how the National Guard apparatus works.  When you hear in the news how wonderful this ill conceived plan is, you need to consider the fact that all those military doctors and nurses called up are only practicing medicine with their Guard units one weekend a month.  What do they do the rest of their time?  They work full-time at civilian medical facilities like every other professional.  Medical-grade National Guardsmen militarily assigned to aid other hospitals end up subtracting their positions from their own facilities, resulting in a zero-sum outcome.

U.S. extends airplane mask mandate through April 18.  The Transportation Security Administration is extending a federal requirement that travelers wear masks on airplanes, at airports, on trains and buses through April 18, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday.  The mandate was set to expire on March 19.  An extension of the mandate comes as the Biden administration, cities and states have rolled back mask mandates and other pandemic policies elsewhere as Covid cases drop.  The shorter extension of the policy compared with previous announcements suggests President Joe Biden and the CDC are weighing whether to lift the mandate entirely this spring, if Covid cases continue to fall.

Vaccines, Masks, Staying At Home Did Not Make A Major Difference In COVID Case Rates, NYT Writer Says.  A senior writer at The New York Times said vaccinations, booster shots and masks have not caused a major difference in case rates between parts of the country with different levels of COVID-19 precautions in a Wednesday morning [3/9/2022] newsletter.  The newsletter compared COVID-19 case rates for Democratic and Republican areas, noting that Democrats were more likely to wear masks, get vaccinated and boosted, avoid public spaces and shut down in-person schools over virus fears.  "These factors seem as if they should have caused large differences in case rates.  They have not.  And that they haven't offers some clarity about the relative effectiveness of different Covid interventions," David Leonhardt wrote in the newsletter.

Parents fume after social workers interrogated San Diego toddlers over mask compliance.  The California Department of Social Services raided a chain of San Diego preschools and interrogated students as young as 2 over the preschool's compliance with the statewide mask mandate.  The students at Aspen Leaf Preschool, which has multiple locations in the city of San Diego, were grilled by state officials in January in response to a complaint that the school was not following the statewide school mask mandate.  The interviews were conducted without any parental notice or awareness.  The owner of the preschools, Howard Wu, told Fox News that the state's visit came as a surprise because the preschool had made no secret of its policy to allow young students to attend the school without wearing masks.

Florida warns teenagers may face more risk from vaccine than from Covid and tells children not to get jabbed.  The Florida Department of Health officially unveiled guidance Tuesday that recommends against vaccinating children, a rare move that breaks from federal guidelines.  Florida officials revealed that they planned to issue the guidance on Monday, during a news conference that included Surgeon General Dr Joseph Lapado, Gov Ron DeSantis and a few controversial health figures like Dr Robert Malone.  Official guidance applies to all children 17 or younger and officials cite the potential risk of myocarditis as reason for the decision.

Under Secretary Victoria Nuland Admits U.S. Funded Biological Research Labs Exist in Ukraine.  Earlier today [3/8/2022], Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, Victoria Nuland, was testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (SFRC) on Russia's invasion of Ukraine.  The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is the legislative branch body who works with the executive branch State Dept to launder money through foreign nations.  The Senate is the bank, the State Dept is the collection agency.  One of the members of the SFRC is Marco Rubio, also the vice-chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI).  Keep this point at the front of your reference.  Senator Rubio has a specific intent when he asks Ms Nuland publicly about biological weapons labs in Ukraine.

Deleted Web Pages Show Obama Led an Effort To Build a Ukraine-Based BioLab Handling 'Especially Dangerous Pathogens'.  deleted web article recovered by The National Pulse reveals that former President Barack Obama spearheaded an agreement leading to the construction of biolabs handling "especially dangerous pathogens" in Ukraine.  The news comes on the same day that Biden regime apparatchik Victoria Nuland told the U.S. Senate that the American government is concerned about biological research facilities falling into Russian hands as a result of the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe.  Originally posted on June 18th, 2010, the article "Biolab Opens in Ukraine" details how Obama, while serving as an Illinois Senator, helped negotiate a deal to build a level-3 bio-safety lab in the Ukrainian city of Odessa.

All Along the Watchtower.  Before I was de-platformed by Twitter for posting the famously accurate Canadian COVID Care Alliance video, before I was de-platformed by LinkedIn for the same reason, before the infamous Joe Rogan hit #1757 where I said the three little words "mass formation psychosis" that caused the Silicon Valley overlords to loose bladder control, many feared that I was "controlled opposition".  And for good reason.  I have spent most of my career deeply involved in the US Biodefense enterprise.  I have worked closely with biodefense research teams at USAMRIID, DTRA, and MIT Lincoln Lab. [...] This is a byzantine world that I have deep understanding of, and direct experience with for virtually my entire life.  I lived by the mantra which all DC bureaucrats know — keep your head down, because if they cannot see you, they cannot shoot you.  But I never really allowed myself to confront the possibility that we might not be the good guys, the white hats.  Until I experienced what we have all been through over the last two years.  A government (or really multiple governments) that clearly believes that it is justified in disregarding fundamental principles of bioethics and the common rule.  And like many others, once I saw that, it was like having backed into a light switch and suddenly the entire room was lit up, and I could never un-see what was revealed.

9 Things to Know About Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo, Who Rejects COVID-19 Shots for Healthy Children.  Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo is drawing national attention after announcing Monday that his state will officially recommend that health officials not give COVID-19 vaccinations to healthy children.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki responded by criticizing Ladapo for going against Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance, saying:  "It's deeply disturbing that there are politicians peddling conspiracy theories out there and casting doubt on vaccinations when it is our best tool against the virus and best tool to prevent even teenagers from being hospitalized."  Ladapo, a physician and secretary of the Florida Department of Health, said that Florida would become the first state in the country to make such a recommendation against the COVID-19 mandates for children set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  In addition to his vaccination guidance, Ladapo has stirred controversy for his stance on masks.

Navy Refuses to Deploy Warship While Commander Remains Unvaccinated.  U.S. Navy officials have said a warship can't be deployed because its commander has refused the COVID-19 vaccine.  The service said an East Coast guided-missile destroyer is "out of commission" after a Florida federal judge ruled that the Navy and Marine Corps cannot remove its officer for being unvaccinated against COVID-19.  The warship now remains docked in Norfolk, Virginia.  It comes after U.S. District Judge Steven Merryday, a George H. W. Bush nominee, ruled on Feb. 2 to bar Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and all other military officials from taking punitive action against the unnamed Navy officer, who sought religious exemptions to the military's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  Merryday wrote that the Navy's rejection failed to note that the branch has separately granted hundreds of medical exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate[.]

Health Officials Relied Too Heavily on Vaccines as 'Cure-All,' CDC Director Says.  Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), became the latest prominent official to contradict key aspects of the official COVID-19 narrative of the past two years.  In a March 3 appearance at Washington University in St.  Louis, Missouri, Walensky was interviewed by Dr. William G. Powderly, co-director of the institution's Division of Infectious Diseases.  During the interview, Walensky said she learned COVID vaccines were effective from watching CNN. She also admitted health officials relied too heavily on vaccines as a "cure-all" of sorts for COVID, and said vaccine makers didn't warn the agency that the vaccines would be less effective against potential variants.  She also admitted that the science, far from being "settled," is "gray" instead of "black and white."

Ivermectin Prophylaxis Used for COVID-19: A Citywide, Prospective, Observational Study of 223,128 Subjects.  Ivermectin has demonstrated different mechanisms of action that potentially protect from both coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection and COVID-19-related comorbidities.  Based on the studies suggesting efficacy in prophylaxis combined with the known safety profile of ivermectin, a citywide prevention program using ivermectin for COVID-19 was implemented in Itajaí, a southern city in Brazil in the state of Santa Catarina.  The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of regular ivermectin use on subsequent COVID-19 infection and mortality rates.

'Half The Country' Did Speak The Covid Truths The CDC Director Insists 'Nobody Said' — And They Were Smeared.  Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, should be eating crow these days but is instead deflecting from her agency's litany of Covid failures.  In keeping with her track record of getting things wrong, she got them woefully wrong again — this time, not with regard to Covid but with regard to the people who disagree with her expert guidance.  During a visit to the Washington University School of Medicine on Thursday, Walensky threw a one-two punch at her critics, but it didn't quite land.  It instead only broadcast more elitist hubris and reinforced why federal health bureaucrats haven't retained a shred of credibility.

Rochelle Walensky Tries Erasing the Last 24 Months With These Statements.  Not only has the Covid narrative been shifting in real-time, but the mindless herd has followed every step of the way without questioning the sudden reversal.  Yet somehow, they are still okay with contradictory messaging around masks.  Joe Biden doesn't need one at his State of the Union, but you do in school?  The Super Bowl attendees didn't need one, but you do in blue cities?  We are being told to forget about Covid, but accept vaccine mandates for employment?  It's all stupid and it's getting really stupid considering the conversation has shifted in record time.  It cannot be overstated that just three months ago, Joe Biden and the entire collusive amalgamation of pharma-government interests were on the warpath to vaccinate every last man, woman, and child.  Joe Biden fear mongered with his dark and deadly winter.  The Biden administration ensured Big Tech silenced anyone challenging the party message and companies all demanded their employees give into an unwanted and unnecessary vaccine.  Barely two months ago, the entire trajectory of freedom was on the line when the Supreme Court heard arguments for a federal vaccine mandate.

The COVID Vaccine is a Civil Rights Issue.  Though receipt of the so-called vaccination is not a law, but only a mandate, there are those who treat it as a sacrosanct law with dire consequences for noncompliance. [...] [P]eople who refuse to be vaccinated endure public humiliation and are treated like social outcasts.  Children have had irrevocable emotional harm done to them.  They have also been denied a full-bodied education.  Verbal abuse and physical assaults occur.  The unvaccinated are snitched on.  Barring people from their livelihood and depriving them of participating in other social, communal, and public activities are just a few of the injustices being committed, all in the name of the public good.

Dr. Robert Malone:  The CDC hid covid data and committed massive scientific fraud.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has admitted that large portions of data about the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) are not being published because the world might "misinterpret" them.  And Dr. Robert Malone is warning that this amounts to fraud.  It has been almost two full years since the plandemic was first launched, and only a "tiny fraction" of the data collected by the CDC has been released for public consumption.  It was The New York Times, of all sources, that ran a big story on this, revealing that much of the withheld information could have been used by state and local officials to get the virus under control.  "The CDC is a political organization as much as it is a public health organization," said Samuel Scarpino, the managing director of pathogen surveillance at the Rockefeller Foundation's Pandemic Prevention Institute.

Did the Director of the CDC Admit She Gets Her Science From CNN?  At this point, taking the scientific establishment seriously has become a difficult thing to do.  It's clear that many of them have been co-opted by people more interested in pushing a political perspective through the veneer of science than actually following it.  It only makes one want to further distance oneself from these institutions when calling them wrong about something very obvious is labeled as "misinformation" and used to censor and silence you.  But moreover, the people in charge of "the science" are increasingly proven to be corrupt and/or wildly incompetent.

Seattle teachers union demands that children be forced to wear masks in school until May.  Despite an order from the Washington state governor lifting mask requirements, Seattle school kids may still have to wear face coverings until spring because the teachers union says they 'bring normalcy' to the classroom.  'Future decisions on mask use within the district will be made in partnership with public health, and its implementation will be established after consultation and mutually agreed upon guidelines that are reached through bargaining with our labor partners,' according to a statement from the Seattle Public Schools.  Schools around the U.S. will soon be lifting their masks as governors and mayors ease restrictions as infection rates fall, with some notable exceptions.

Mother, 32, who became face of Chicago Teachers Union's push to keep schools closed drank herself to death, medical examiner reveals.  A Chicago mother who the teachers' union claimed died when a COVID-positive student was sent home to quarantine as they rallied for more COVID protocols actually died of alcoholism, it emerged on Monday [3/7/2022].  Denisha Henry, the 32-year-old mother of an eighth-grade student at Jensen Elementary Scholastic Academy in the East Garfield Park district of Chicago, died on September 24.  The day before, Shenitha Curry, 44, had died of pneumonia from COVID, with diabetes and hypertension as contributing factors.  She was not vaccinated.  Soon after, the Chicago Teachers' Union claimed at a rally that both mothers caught COVID from a child at the school, where 11 out of 17 classrooms were in quarantine.

As Financial Markets Crash and Ukraine Burns, There's Nowhere Left to Hide for the Biden Administration.  Then there is the resolving picture of all the mysterious puzzle pieces in the Covid-19 story.  Sunday night, America's premier propaganda vessel, CBS's 60-Minutes, ran a puff-piece on the CDC starring the warm-and-fuzzy Mom figure, Rochelle Walensky.  It is hard to overstate just how dishonest the segment was, starting with its subtle effort to keep America in a state of alarm ("new variants" coming!), proceeding to a deceptive cartoon of how the mRNA "vaccines" work wonders ("white memory cells patrol the body," no mention of spike proteins), and concluding with exhortations for Americans to continue vaxxing and boosting up — despite an avalanche of news coming from elsewhere than 60-Minutes about the CDC withholding critical information from the public it's supposed to serve throughout the two-year-plus crisis, not to mention new data from alt-media on extensive injury and death rates among the vaccinated, including shocking info from the court-ordered recent release of Pfizer's own records.  Was this 60-Minutes segment corporate media's attempt to cover up the emerging crimes of America's public health agencies in concert with Pharma and media itself?  That is, to get ahead of the story, as has lately been the strategy for all the cable channels and legacy newspapers with more and more citizens asking themselves if they have been played?  Meanwhile, the Big Kahuna of Covid-19, one Dr. Anthony Fauci, has gone-to-ground, made himself scarce, skipped the scene, vamoosed... amid all the new controversy.

Why do America's teachers want to smother America's children?  In Democrat cities across America, the word is out:  It's time for masks to go...except on children.  Teachers' unions are adamant that it's just better for those kids to keep hiding their faces.  It's a mystery to me why this is but it's clear that these people should not be allowed in classrooms because they must really dislike children.  In uber-leftist Seattle, the teachers' union wants to keep kids masked for the remainder of the school year.

"Covid theatre at its finest."
Protesters Ridiculed for 'Cringe' Rally Urging Continued Mask Mandates.  A group of parents on Wednesday took to the steps of the historic Tweed Courthouse in New York City which houses the city's Department of Education (DOE) headquarters, calling for continued mask mandates as the city begins lifting them almost two years after the coronavirus pandemic was first declared.  The group behind the "Masking for a Friend" rally, Parents for Responsive Equitable Safe Schools (PRESS-NYC), describes itself as a "parent collective" which aims to "build learning communities, write anti-racist curriculum" and "hold the DOE, the Mayor, and the education press accountable."

Everything Biden said about COVID vaccines was nonsense.  These are the points he made "First, stay protected with vaccines and treatments.  We know how incredibly effective vaccines are.  If you're vaccinated and boosted, you have the highest degree of protection. ... We will never give up on vaccinating more Americans.  Now, I know parents with kids under 5 are eager to see a vaccine authorized for their children. ... If necessary, we'll be able to deploy new vaccines within 100 days instead of many more months or years. ... And with 75% of adult Americans fully vaccinated and hospitalizations down by 77%, most Americans can remove their masks, return to work, stay in the classroom, and move forward safely."  Actual data contradicts what Biden said.  If COVID vaccines were really effective, then how can the nearly one million COVID deaths be explained with 75% percent of adults vaccinated?  The US COVID death rate is incredibly high compared to other nations.  Biden failed to acknowledge the many hundreds of thousands of Americans who have died or suffered serious illness from the COVID vaccines, not the infection.  No one who follows actual medical science and looks at the benefits and risks of vaccination would seriously question whether they or their children should get the shot.

NY Times' Theatre Critic Ditches Reviews for Mask Obsession, Fear of 'Barefaced' Audience.  New York Times' theatre critic Laura Collins-Hughes' reviews from London's West End have sadly devolved into anxious screeds about COVID and masks, those cloth talismans of liberal moral superiority that she flaunts like a Trump fan would wear a MAGA hat.  Admittedly she had bad luck in London in September 2021 upon her return to reviewing West End theatre, testing positive for the virus and having to quarantine.  Before she got her fateful results, she boasted she "was already double-masked... I was a maniac about masks."  Despite her precautions, Collins-Hughes' mandatory COVID test came back positive and she had to quarantine for 10 days.

Why we must demand that leaders who got COVID wrong admit it and apologize.  As COVID restrictions end around the country, and Democratic politicians pretend that something about the science has changed instead of their poll numbers being in the dirt, Americans must first demand:  apologies.  Here, I'll even go first.  I spent much of 2020 and 2021 writing again and again arguing for the opening of schools throughout the country.  But in March 2020, I was one of the leading voices urging schools to close.  It made no sense to me that my husband had stopped going into the office because of the mysterious new virus but my children continued to go to school.  People were dying in large numbers in Italy and I was afraid.  I never imagined that "two weeks to slow the spread" would turn into two years, and counting, of pausing the lives of children to accommodate hypochondriac adults.  I was wrong.  I'm sorry.  Now you go.

COVID Vaccines - What Happened to 'Safe and Effective'?  COVID vaccines were developed in record time, one might say at "warp speed," the name of the operation instituted by President Trump in 2020.  We were assured by those in whom we place trust that these vaccines were "safe and effective." [...] Last week, as reported by Yahoo!  Finance, the FDA released, under orders from a U.S. District Judge, 55,000 pages of clinical trial documents which Pfizer submitted to the FDA as part the approval process.  Originally the FDA wanted to suppress this data for 75 years as they had "limited resources" to prepare this data for release, yet they took approximately 75 days to review and analyze this same data before granting approval.  In the appendix is a "List of adverse events of special interest," noting 1,291 different adverse events post vaccination, running 9 pages.  There is always the issue of association versus causation, but the fact that Pfizer submitted this data to the FDA and the FDA fought to prevent its release raises red flags.  Aside from the FDA submission, there is the VAERS database which specially tracks vaccine related adverse effects.

How the federal government bought pro-Covid vax propaganda (and silenced critical voices).  Voices urging caution over the experimental mRNA shots that were relentlessly promoted throughout the media (and by the medical establishment) were confined to independent media like American Thinker until quite recently, when the evidence of adverse effects and lack of efficacy became almost impossible to ignore.  How did such media uniformity, encompassing all ideological stripes from Fox News and Newsmax to MSNBC and the Washington Post, come about?  According to reports by Chris Pandolfo in The Blaze and Emerald Robinson in Substack, taxpayers financed an unprecedented advertising campaign in virtually every major national media outlet that resulted in uniformly positive coverage of the vaccines rushed to market to combat COVID. Not just the ads themselves, but the news coverage offered by these outlets positively covered the jabs, and suppressed questions about them from skeptics.

Ivermectin: The Truth vs Goliath.  In October 2020 Dr Andrew Hill was tasked to report to the World Health Organisation on the dozens of new studies from around the world suggesting that Ivermectin could be a remarkably safe and effective treatment for COVID-19.  But on January 18th 2021, Dr Hill published his findings on a pre-print server.  His methods lacked rigour, the review was low quality and the extremely positive findings on ivermectin were contradicted by the conclusion.  In the end, Dr Hill advised that "Ivermectin should be validated in larger appropriately controlled randomized trials before the results are sufficient for review by regulatory authorities."  The researcher seeking a global recommendation on Ivermectin had instead recommended against it.  A media onslaught against the medicine ensued.  What were Dr Hill's reasons for doing so?  Were his conclusions justified?  Or were external forces influencing his about-face?

CDC quietly admits COVID-19 vaccines cause heart attacks and strokes; Big Pharma media tries to pin blame on anything else.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has quietly admitted that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines cause heart inflammation, heart attack and stroke.  Specifically, the CDC admitted that the vaccines cause myocarditis and myopericarditis.  The former occurs when the heart muscle — also known as the myocardium — becomes inflamed.  The latter occurs when both the heart muscle and the sac that surrounds the heart — known as the pericardium — become inflamed.  Myocarditis can weaken the heart's ability to pump blood and cause arrhythmias.  Severe cases of myocarditis could weaken the heart so much that it becomes unable to pump enough blood to the entire body.  This can also lead to clots forming in the heart, which can cause either strokes or heart attacks.  "Evidence from multiple safety monitoring systems in multiple countries supports the finding of an increased risk of myocarditis and myopericarditis following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination," read a CDC report titled "COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Updates," written by a member of the CDC's COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force.

COVID Vaccine Bombshells You Probably Missed.  In recent weeks, there have been several stunning revelations concerning the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines — and they are being all but ignored by a corporate media eager to change the subject.  The FDA on Tuesday [3/1/2022] released a large tranche of Pfizer clinical trials documents in response to a Freedom of Information (FOIA) request by the Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency.  The documents show that the company knew people were at risk of experiencing more than 1,000 unique adverse side-effects to the mRNA injections.  Additionally, scientists last week revealed that Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine can enter human liver cells and be converted into DNA — something the fact-checkers and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control assured the public could never happen.  Scientists also recently discovered that a sequence of genetic material patented by Moderna in 2018 bears a suspicious similarity to the spike protein in Sars-Cov2.

Study: Pfizer shot makes teens 7 times more likely to suffer myocarditis.  Members of an FDA panel were worried about the risk of myocarditis when they approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 shot for children last fall, and now there is more cause for concern.  A new study published by JAMA Pediatrics found adolescents were seven times more likely to be hospitalized for myocarditis after receiving a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.  The researchers in Hong Kong found an incidence of 39 cases of myocarditis per 100,000 inhabitants.  That means that for every 2,563 teens vaccinated with two doses, one was hospitalized for myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle.  The study, published Feb. 25, argued that vaccination policy "for adolescents should consider the trade-off between risks and benefits."

Tens of millions of doses [are] being trashed as demand for COVID vaccines collapses.  Coronavirus vaccines that were paid for to go into the arms of Americans are going down the drain — or into a landfill — now that many places in America have more doses than people who want them.  About 9.5 percent of the doses shipped from the federal government have been wasted, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  That amounts to about 65 million doses, according to the Associated Press.  The numbers vary by state, with nearly 1.5 million doses in Michigan, 1.45 million in North Carolina, 1 million in Illinois and almost 725,000 doses in Washington going to waste.

Surgeon General Asks Social Media Companies for Target List of COVID Skeptics and Influencers.  Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, Vice Admiral, U.S. Public Health Service Surgeon General of the United States, is married to a woman named Dr. Alice Tu Chen.  If you look into the past of the surgeon general's wife, you will discover Alice Chen is essentially a ghost — from the perspective of: who were her parents, where is her family?  The lack of early childhood, parental and familial history is a key characteristic of CCP plants in the U.S.  When the U.S. Dept of Justice recently announced they were dropping the Chinese spy initiative, a program to review how CCP officials had been working for years to seed the U.S. with Chinese operatives, indications are the DOJ motive was connected to serious internal discoveries surrounding the wife of the U.S. Surgeon General, Alice Chen.  I do not say this lightly.  Unfortunately, a tangential outcome from eliminating the FBI "China Initiative', is recognizing we now have a completely compromised U.S. Surgeon General who is a controlled mechanism for the Fourth Branch of Government to leverage.

This article is completely off-topic and I'm sure it has nothing to do with experimental "vaccines."
Shane Warne, Legendary Australian Cricketer, Dead at 52 After 'Suspected Heart Attack'.  Australian cricketer Shane Warne, considered the greatest leg-spin bowler of all time, has died after suffering a suspected heart attack at his villa in Thailand, his management company confirmed on Friday.  He was 52.  "It is with great sadness we advise that Shane Keith Warne passed away of a suspected heart attack in Koh Samui, Thailand," a statement from his management company, MPC Entertainment, reads.  "Shane was found unresponsive in his villa and despite the best efforts of medical staff, he could not be revived," it added.

Australian Cricket Legend Shane Warne Dies Suddenly at 52 of Heart Attack After Pushing Double COVID Vaxx Last Year.  Australian cricketer Shane Warne, a legend in the sport, died suddenly at the age of 52 of a sudden heart attack on Friday [3/4/2022].  "It is with great sadness we advise that Shane Keith Warne passed away of a suspected heart attack in Koh Samui, Thailand today, Friday 4th March," MPC Entertainment, Warne's company, said in a statement.

Expert Says Fauci Responsible for Hundreds of Thousands of American Deaths by Blocking Hydroxychloroquine.  Dr. Steven Hatfill, infectious disease expert, says the medical bureaucracy blocked an effective treatment in hydroxychloroquine so they could push through experimental vaccines.  Dr. Hatfill told War Room hydroxychloroquine is proven to be effective and costs roughly 60 cents per pill.  However, the existence of a proven effective treatment would not have allowed Dr. Fauci and FDA's Janet Woodcock to expedite covid vaccines.  "You don't need a vaccine," Dr. Hatfill said.  "It's quite evident that Dr. Fauci, Dr. Woodcock, Dr. [Rick] Bright are responsible for hundreds of thousands of America deaths for causing this drug to pick up a bad name," Dr. Hatfill said.  [Video clip]

The Editor says...
Hmmm... Steven Hatfill.  Seems like I've heard of him before.

Massive Hypocrisy:  Corporate Media Celebrates Democrat Mayor's Vicious Tweets.  When leftwing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lifted his skirt last month and revealed his fascist tendencies by cracking down on anti-authoritarianism protests, many American moderates and even some conservatives scoffed at the notion such tyranny could trickle southward.  "Not here," they said, "not in America."  Well, don't look now, but it's already started.  That didn't take long.  As was the case in Canada, the shift towards totalitarianism we're seeing in Boston is rooted in COVID.  Or to be more accurate, that shift is being justified by pointing to COVID as the bogeyman-du-jour.  Bostonians unhappy with Mayor Michelle Wu's nonsensical and oppressive COVID policies began protesting, and Wu, like all true leftists, doesn't like dissent.  And when those protesters began making their voices heard near Wu's residence, that dissent had gone too far.  Solution?  Silence the dissenters.

Restoring America:  Democrats still can't quit COVID-19 'emergency' policymaking.  Democrats want to try and put COVID-19 behind them now that everyone else in the country has moved on.  But maintaining that COVID-19 is still an "emergency" gives them an excuse to pursue unrelated policy goals, so they refuse to let go.  Senate Democrats just failed to block a GOP resolution to lift the emergency declaration from March 2020.  It passed in a 48-47 vote.  But the resolution isn't likely to pass the House, and President Joe Biden promised to veto it, calling it "a reckless and costly mistake."  Why would Biden do this after he promised COVID-19 "no longer need control our lives" at the State of the Union?  Why would he do this at a time when Democratic governors nationwide have drastically scaled back COVID-19 restrictions and mandates?  Well, it's because he wants to spend more money.

NFL Agrees With NFLPA To Sack All Its COVID-19 Protocols.  The NFL is done with COVID-19.  Well, it's done with COVID-19 protocols.  In a memo sent to all 32 clubs Thursday, the NFL announced it had agreed with the NFL Players Association to lift all protocols it had imposed and amended since March of 2020. [...] That means testing is over, regardless of vaccination status for players, coaches and staff.  That means masks are no longer required in the workplace, regardless of vaccination status.  That means signs within team facilities concerning social distancing and mask wearing can come down.  That means restrictions on weight room and lunch room capacity limits are lifted.

Why Are Covid Restrictions Coming Off?  Across America, jurisdictions are ending covid-related mandates and shutdowns.  No more masks!  No more vaccine certificates!  Get the kids back in school!  Of course I think these developments are all good; I have argued from near the beginning of the epidemic that shutdowns and mask mandates are useless and counterproductive.  But why are liberals in government now throwing in the towel?  The standard explanation is that the extreme measures taken to "combat" covid have worked, along with vaccination.  Thus, because of the great progress we have made, life can get back to normal.

Say, has anyone heard from Anthony Fauci lately?  Has anyone else noticed a strange lacuna in the COVID-19 media Force?  As though a single voice with a million appearances on national television has suddenly gone silent?  Actually, yes, someone has, but before we get there, let's take a quick peek at the media page for Dr. Anthony Fauci at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) as of this morning [3/4/2022].  Up until a couple of weeks ago, Fauci appeared to be very busy indeed.  On February 17, fifteen days ago, Fauci made three national-TV appearances — ABC, PBS, and finally on CNN in which the NIAID director opined that lifting school masking mandates was "risky."  That took place at the same moment in which Democrat executives like Gavin Newsom and Gretchen Whitmer began calling for an end to the requirement to mask children, who were at very low risk for the disease, in schools that never were shown to be vectors of transmission in the first place.  To call that timing "inconvenient" is an exercise in understatement.

DeSantis, Florida Surgeon General push bill that would protect medical workers from censorship.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo held a press conference Thursday to stand up for the "traditional practice of medicine."  The governor touted his fight against a range of COVID-19 mitigation tactics used widely across the nation — namely lock-downs, mask mandates, and vaccine requirements.  "People have lost their jobs over these policies," DeSantis said."People's kids have lost access to education over these policies."  He added there was more that needed to be done to protect Floridians against "threats to freedom."

New documents show US officials knew China was withholding data, trained Wuhan Institute scientists.  A legal watchdog organization has released 90 pages of communication records between the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the Wuhan Institute of Virology on the subject of grants to the now-infamous laboratory.  Judicial Watch obtained the records, first obtained by Fox News Digital, via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.  The emails draw attention to records between the State Department and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), run by Dr. Anthony Fauci, that suggest U.S. officials were aware of the Chinese Communist Party withholding key information on the coronavirus before the pandemic outbreak.

As vaccine demand falls, states are left with huge stockpile.  As demand for COVID-19 vaccines collapses in many areas of the U.S., states are scrambling to use stockpiles of doses before they expire and have to be added to the millions that have already gone to waste.  From some of the least vaccinated states, like Indiana and North Dakota, to some of the most vaccinated states, like New Jersey and Vermont, public health departments are shuffling doses around in the hopes of finding providers that can use them.

Senate Republicans wield teeny-weeny twig on vaccine mandates.  The U.S. Senate, with a Republican-dominated voice of 49 to 44, passed a resolution to block Joe Biden's presidentially decreed coronavirus shot mandates for healthcare workers.  Republicans are calling it a victory.  But it's not.  Not really.  Neither the Democrat-led House nor the White House support it, and it won't pass.  But that shouldn't matter.  It shouldn't matter because Republicans in the Senate, if they wanted, if they so chose, if they truly believed in the constitutionally disgusting idea of government forcing an untested-for-long-term-safety-and-efficacy shot into the arms of 17 million or so health care workers — if they honestly wanted to put a stop to the madness and executive overreach — they could.

The Pandemic is Over for the Unvaccinated, Not so for the Boosted.  A new UKHSA Report for Week 9 is out.  Congratulations are in order:  the pandemic among the unvaccinated Brits is just about over.  Only 394 vaccine-free persons died in weeks 5-8, compared to 3,527 vaccinated deaths.  This means that vaccine-free Brits comprised only exactly 10% of all Covid deaths during weeks 5-8.  Comparing current weeks 5-8 to weeks 1-4: Unvaccinated deaths went down from 1,007 deaths in week 1-4, to just 394 deaths in weeks 5-8 — a drop of 61%.  However, for the same periods, boosted deaths went from 2,585 in Weeks 1-4, to 2,704 in Weeks 5-8 — an INCREASE of 5%.

The federal government paid hundreds of media companies to advertise the COVID-19 vaccines while those same outlets provided positive coverage of the vaccines.  In response to a FOIA request filed by TheBlaze, HHS revealed that it purchased advertising from major news networks including ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as cable TV news stations Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC, legacy media publications including the New York Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post, digital media companies like BuzzFeed News and Newsmax, and hundreds of local newspapers and TV stations.  These outlets were collectively responsible for publishing countless articles and video segments regarding the vaccine that were nearly uniformly positive about the vaccine in terms of both its efficacy and safety.  Hundreds of news organizations were paid by the federal government to advertise for the vaccines as part of a "comprehensive media campaign," according to documents TheBlaze obtained from the Department of Health and Human Services.

The surgeon general calls on Big Tech to turn over Covid-19 misinformation data.  President Biden's surgeon general on Thursday [3/3/2022] formally requested that the major tech platforms submit information about the scale of Covid-19 misinformation on social networks, search engines, crowdsourced platforms, e-commerce platforms and instant messaging systems.  A request for information from the surgeon general's office demanded that tech platforms send data and analysis on the prevalence of Covid-19 misinformation on their sites, starting with common examples of vaccine misinformation documented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The notice asks the companies to submit "exactly how many users saw or may have been exposed to instances of Covid-19 misinformation," as well as aggregate data on demographics that may have been disproportionately exposed to or affected by the misinformation.

Twitter suspends John Solomon's account for story on peer-reviewed COVID study.  Twitter on Thursday [3/3/2022] suspended the account of Just the News CEO and Editor John Solomon for tweeting a story about a peer-reviewed study on COVID vaccines published in a respected medical journal by a research university that has worked with the both National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization.  The platform claimed the story was "violating the policy on spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19" even though the story quoted federal agencies' context for the issue raised by the story.

Speech Therapy Shows the Difficult Tradeoffs of Wearing Masks.  Americans have been arguing about pandemic restrictions for two years, and the debate is particularly fraught among parents of small children, for good reasons.  While measures such as masking and isolation mean temporary discomfort or inconvenience for most people, their consequences for still-developing young children are more mysterious, and possibly more significant and lasting.  Children with speech or language disorders offer perhaps the clearest example of these murky trade-offs.  Pandemic restrictions vary by state, county, and school district, but I spoke with parents in California, New York, Massachusetts, Washington, New Jersey, Iowa, and Maryland who said their children's speech therapy has been disrupted — first by the loss of in-person therapy and then by masking requirements, in places that have them.

Science [is] officially changing:  Federal agencies [are] dropping mask mandates.  So far, Reuters reports, the science has only officially changed at the Department of Justice and at the Pentagon.  Expect it to change across the entire executive branch quickly, even if still behind Congress' unmasking for the State of the Union speech — and of course, nearly every other state in the country except Hawaii.  The White House quietly changed its directive late on Monday [2/28/2022] to remove mask mandates in low-hospitalization areas.

Senate votes to ditch vaccine mandates on health workers.  The Senate voted Wednesday [3/2/2022] to get rid of President Biden's vaccine mandate on health workers at places that receive federal funding in a political messaging move ahead of the midterm elections.  Senators voted 49-44 for the disapproval resolution, which would use the Congressional Review Act to eliminate the mandate.  "I thank my Senate colleagues for joining me in voting to END the CMS vaccine mandate," Rep. Roger Marshall, Kansas Republican, tweeted, referring to the agency that controls Medicare and Medicaid funding.  "I hope my colleagues in the House join us as well in voting to save thousands of healthcare jobs we simply can't afford to lose."

Gov DeSantis Tells College Students Wearing Masks to Stop With the Covid Theatre.  An exacerbated Ron DeSantis to USF students:  "You do not have to wear those masks.  Please take them off.  Honestly, it's not doing anything.  We've gotta stop with this Covid theater.  So if you wanna wear it, fine, but this is ridiculous."  [Video clip]

NYC private schools worry students will be teased over choice to wear masks.  With the end of school mask mandates around the corner, the city's elite private schools are warning students not to question or tease classmates over their face covering choices.  Private schools introduced an optional mask policy for staffers and students Wednesday after Gov. Kathy Hochul officially scrapped the requirement.  "Everything is so polarized and political these days," said a parent at Manhattan's Spence School.  "There is more to this than just wearing or not wearing a mask.  It's seen as a reflection of the student and the parents' views overall."  Some administrators are getting in front of the issue and asking parents to talk to their kids about respecting their classmates' mask choices.

Another ballyhooed COVID-19 shot bites the dust.  The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine that was supposed to protect kids ages 5 to 11 from catching the virus with a 68% efficacy rate has now been outed as nearly ineffective.  Its efficacy rate is actually only, get this, 12%.  Another day, another one bites the dust.  The running theme here with all of these coronavirus vaccines is that they're increasingly failing to deliver as promised.  Their efficacy rates are dropping like flies.

'Follow the science': As Year 3 of the pandemic begins, a simple slogan becomes a political weapon.  Two years ago, when science writer Faye Flam launched a podcast to explore why so many Americans were drawn to misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic, she settled on a name she figured would steer clear of politics:  "Follow the Science."  The podcast flourished, but its title has posed a constant dilemma for Flam as the phrase "follow the science," far from uniting Americans, became a weapon, wielded in derision by both sides of the national divide over how to confront the coronavirus.  Like so many Americans, when Flam hears "follow the science" these days, she braces for a statement likely to be anything but scientific:  "The phrase became associated with safety-ism and overcaution, like people would use it sarcastically when they saw someone running through a field wearing an N95 mask," she said.  At the same time, "follow the science" also became a taunt deployed by vaccine and mask advocates against those who spurned such mandatory public health measures.

Official data:  Fully vaccinated people account for 9 of 10 COVID deaths.  The fully vaccinated account for 9 of every 10 deaths from COVID-19 in England and 4 of 5 deaths among the triple-vaccinated, according to the latest data published by the U.K. Health Security Agency.  The independent British news site The Exposé reported the government report, published Feb. 22, includes a table on page 41 confirming the vast majority of deaths were among the vaccinated.  About 73.5% of the population of England has been fully vaccinated, and 56.9% have received a booster shot, as of Feb. 28.

Biden's Dangerous Public Use of Classified Intel on Russia.  I sure would not want to be in Russia spying for America with Joe Biden as U.S. president.  In the lead-up to Vladimir Putin's unprovoked invasion of the sovereign neighbor nation of Ukraine, Biden and his aides repeatedly revealed and discussed in public highly-detailed, classified intelligence reports and declassified photos about the Russian leader's invasion plans clearly obtained by clandestine sources.  Biden was unusually specific — and accurate — in predicting the Russian invasion "in coming days" despite vigorous denials from Moscow.  Fortuitously for Biden, such revelations also provided a compelling distraction from his political troubles at home — frightening inflation, the lingering pandemic, a legislative agenda stalled by his own party.

FDA Warns of Possible False Results From Some COVID-19 Tests.  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Tuesday [3/1/2022] said that three rapid COVID-19 tests should not be used because of the potential for producing false results.  The FDA told people to stop using the Celltrion DiaTrust COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test, the SD Biosensor Inc.  STANDARD Q COVID-19 Ag Home Test, and the Flowflex SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test (Self-Testing).  "The FDA is concerned about the risk of false results when using" those tests, according to the agency.  These tests have "not been authorized, cleared or approved by the FDA for distribution or use in the United States," the agency added.

The Truth Is Coming Out About COVID Deaths.  Early on in the COVID pandemic, people suspected that the deaths attributed to the infection were exaggerated.  There was plenty of evidence for this.  For starters, hospitals were instructed and incentivized to mark any patient who had a positive COVID test and subsequently died within a certain time period as a COVID death.  At the same time, we knew that the PCR test was unreliable, producing inordinate amounts of false positives.  Now, the truth is finally starting to come out and, as suspected, the actual death toll is vastly lower than we were led to believe.  In the video above, Dr. John Campbell reviews recent data released by the U.K. government in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.  They show that the number of deaths during 2020 in England and Wales, where COVID-19 was the sole cause of death, was 9,400.  Of those, 7,851 were aged 65 and older.  The median age of death was 81.5 years.

The Editor says...
The current life expectancy for U.K. in 2022 is 81.65 years; therefore it is reasonable to state that Covid-19 had no effect on life expectancy in England.  This is not the result one would expect if Covid was the terrible disease we were led to believe it was.

Top 10 ways Biden deluded himself during his State of the Union.  [For example,] Gaslighting us on the pandemic:  "Let's stop looking at COVID as a partisan dividing line," said the president who has done nothing but manipulate COVID fear for political purposes, and changed tune only after opinion polls on his handling of the pandemic headed south.

Is Covid Policy Comedy, Tragedy, or Both?  The Saturday Night Live skit on Covid policy is a welcome relief, a cultural sign that rationality has started to return.  Yes, the segment is truly hilarious.  And it reveals so much about the present moment in which even highly politicized elites are realizing that the dissidents in the Covid wars had it right all along.  [Video clip]  At the same time, the skit speaks to a deeper truth about the last two years.  For many in the professional Zoom class, the entire occasion tragically became an opportunity for signaling virtue, pontificating about politics, and tightening alliances with their class compatriots, even as billions around the world suffered at the hands of overlords who massively neglected the lessons of traditional public health in favor of a wild experiment in pointless compulsion.  They shut down the "economy" (two weeks turned into two years) but for people in a certain class and age group, it was a welcome relief from the burdens of going to the office.  The value of seeming to be part of a grand political mission outweighed the cost of not going out to eat.  The lack of empathy for the workers who had no such luxury, church goers locked out of their houses of worship, and kids torn from their peers, to say nothing of millions who fell into poverty — and we could go on — was truly startling.

Wash. Gov. Jay Inslee Won't Give Up Authoritarian COVID Emergency Powers Because ... Trump.  The Governor of Washington refuses to give up the COVID-19 emergency powers he's clung to for two years despite several appeals by Republicans and, lately, Democrats.  And the reason he refuses to relinquish that extraordinary power is that Donald Trump is living rent-free in his mind.  Republicans and others have demanded he give up his emergency powers and resume regular order with old-fashioned checks and balances.  Even though Democrats dominate both houses, Inslee has refused.

The Democrats now prove there never was any science behind their mandates.  Only months and years after most Republican Party governors and politicians had lifted or halted all mandates requiring masks or COVID shots or social distancing, in the past week Democrats in numerous places have suddenly decided that masks and COVID shots and social distancing have suddenly become unnecessary or ineffective, and have canceled almost all their government-edicts mandating such things.  [Links to announcements]  Simultaneously, the CDC late last week finally loosened its mask recommendations, no longer demanding that Americans wear masks indoors or in many other circumstances.  What none of these announcements mentioned was any evidence of any new scientific results to justify the new recommendations or the loosening of mandates.  These changes were based — not on new scientific results — but on the fear-based opinions of politicians and health bureaucrats who for the past two years have consistently based their edicts and mandates solely on emotions and politics, not scientific evidence, and were repeatedly wrong every single time.

After All Those Draconian Measures, Look Who's Got COVID.  The tyranny we've seen inflicted in the name of COVID on citizens around the world has been both widespread and disturbing.  In China, where the pandemic originated, the communist government set the bar for authoritarianism by welding shut the doors of apartment buildings.  We've seen vaccine passports in countries as varied as Switzerland and Thailand.  And of course, vaccine and mask mandates in the US, Canada, and elsewhere have stirred outrage among the populace.  But when it comes to prolonged and persistent autocracy, Australia has been a global leader.  And wouldn't you know it?  We found out yesterday that Australia's Prime Minister, the Honorable Scott Morrison, has tested positive for COVID.

Indiana High School Teacher Caught On Camera Assaulting A Student For Not Wearing His Mask In The Hallway.  An Indiana high school teacher has been fired after a video shows him slapping a student in a hallway, WBND reported.  Jimtown High School teacher Mike Hosinski hit the student during a confrontation on Feb. 25 about a hooded sweatshirt the student was wearing in class, according to a release from Baugo Community Schools in Elkhart.  The district released surveillance video that shows the teacher grabbing the student by the backpack and pushing the student against the wall.  [Video clip]

The Experts, Science, Medicine — All Amazing, All Fallible.  Only three months into 2020, just when science and medicine were at the apogee of their evolution, when practically every body part — retina, heart, lung, knee, hip, skin, fingers, et al. — can be replaced, when the fastest-growing segment of our population is between 90 and 100, and when there are more individuals over 100 in America than ever before, along comes a virus from China that in a matter of weeks shuts down the world!  But not to worry!  We in America have "experts" to rely on, to guide us, to reassure us that it would only take a matter of weeks to "flatten the curve" on the frightening escalation of what, in no time, the same experts labeled a genuine pandemic.  As it turned out, every one of their models and projections and pronouncements and reassurances were wrong!

US Government Advises People To Stay Six Feet Apart During Potential Nuclear Attack.  The U.S. government has been advising Americans to social distance during a possible nuclear attack, according to a bulletin last updated Feb. 25, 2022.  As part of the bulletin's warning, individuals are told to get inside to the nearest building to avoid radiation and remove contaminated clothing that could have come in contact with debris when the fallout from the attack occurred.  "Go to the basement or middle of the building," the government advises.  "Stay away from the outer walls and roofs.  Try to maintain a distance of at least six feet between yourself and people who are not part of your household.  If possible, wear a mask if you're sheltering with people who are not a part of your household."

COVID's Worst Victim:  America's Trust.  Today, Americans are grieving — their trust in great institutions has died.  Americans have lost faith in Washington; in federal medical bureaucracies like the CDC, FDA, and NIH; in legal institutions including the FBI and DOJ, and in school systems from K-12 through universities.  Science itself has been called into question.  Politicians and bureaucrat-M.D.s claim they "follow the science," but real scientists, clinical physicians, and policy experts say that what Washington follows isn't science at all.

140 million Americans have had coronavirus, according to blood tests analyzed by CDC.  More than 140 million Americans have had the coronavirus, according to estimates from blood tests that reveal antibodies from infection — about double the rate regularly cited by national case counts.  The estimates, compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, show that about 43 percent of the country has been infected by the virus.  The study shows that the majority of children have also been infected.  The data goes through late January, when the omicron variant of the coronavirus was causing more than 500,000 cases a day, meaning the number of Americans now infected is considerably higher.  The data comes from 72,000 blood samples taken in January.

7 Major Failures of the Biden Presidency.  [#4] Authoritarian COVID-19 Mandates:  Remember when Biden said he would shut down the COVID-19 virus and not the economy?  Well, most Americans now believe that COVID-19 is here to stay no matter what we do.  This after Biden reached beyond the powers of his office to force Americans to get vaccinated and tell states to enforce the most stringent mask mandates.  Biden tried to force private employers and other organizations with over 100 or more employees to enforce a vaccine mandate, despite saying that he didn't think it was exactly constitutional.  The Supreme Court agreed, and struck down the executive order in January.

COVID-19 Data Shows It's Time for America to Return to Normal.  President Joe Biden's State of the Union address on March 1 offers a unique opportunity to break with past pandemic policies and announce that we are moving on from COVID-19.  The public policy response to the pandemic has so far depended on nonpharmaceutical interventions and vaccines.  These policies appear to have reached the limits of their utility.  Federal public health officials urged lockdowns, mask mandates, school closures, and other restrictive policies in hopes of slowing the contagion's spread until a vaccine arrived.  By last July, Biden — who had campaigned on promising to "shut down" the virus — announced that vaccines had brought us "closer than ever to declaring our independence from a deadly virus."

Politicians, Activists Argue Democrats' Flip Flop On Mask Mandates is Motivated by 'Political Science' and Electoral Ambitions.  As Democrats change tune on mask mandates, education activists argue the policy shift is based on "political science" motivations rather than scientific evidence.  Democrat politicians' change in tune regarding mask mandates is an attempt to help their case politically, Fight for Schools Executive Director and America First Legal Senior Adviser Ian Prior told the Daily Caller News Foundation.  "When far left politicians and their legacy media allies talked about following the data and science, what they really meant was following the polling data and the political science," Prior said.  "Parents are not going to fall for this kind of gaslighting, now or ever."

America's Lethal Dose Of Quack Science.  You can only feed the public so much scientific quackery before its societal seams crack.  Increasing depressions, rising suicides, elevated crime, shuttered businesses, denuded shelves, inflation, shortages, and broken relations are the result of a tapestry of stained science woven by lunatic politicians.  You might think if anyone follows the science it would be the FDA.  After all, they are the guardians of our health.  Not so much.  Here's an example.  Remember when Pfizer said their vaccine was 95% effective?  Reaching that impressive number required a very "unscientific" sleight of hand.

A Kennedy's Crusade Against Covid Vaccines Anguishes Family and Friends.  Nearly 60 years after Bobby took his sister along for the excursions into the woods, the son and namesake of Robert F. Kennedy, the New York senator, attorney general and Democratic presidential candidate assassinated on June 5, 1968, has become an unimaginably polarizing figure in this tight-knit political family.  Once a top environmental lawyer who led the charge to clean up the Hudson River in New York, the third eldest child of Robert and Ethel Kennedy has emerged as a leading voice in the campaign to discredit coronavirus vaccines and other measures being advanced by the Biden White House to battle a pandemic that was, near the end of February, killing close to 1,900 people a day.  "The minute they hand you that vaccine passport, every right that you have is transformed into a privilege contingent upon your obedience to arbitrary government dictates," he told a cheering crowd at a rally against vaccine mandates in Washington last month.  "It will make you a slave."

Cloth masks allow 90% of particles to filter through giving them little ability to prevent COVID transmission, study finds.  Cloth masks do little to prevent the spread of COVID-19, or other airborne diseases, a new study finds.  Researchers from the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom found that 90 percent of particles could get through cloth masks, making them effectively useless during the pandemic.  Cloth masks have been popular in the U.S., as they are easily reusable after washing and at some points were the most accessible due to shortages and high prices for surgical or N95 masks.  Now, though, experts have discovered that these masks were doing little if anything to actually stop the spread of the virus, and likely contributed to spread as people who believed they were acting safely were not doing so.

The No Patient Left Alone Act.  Whereas, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused great uncertainty and anxiety across our State and has significantly affected patients and residents in health care facilities; and Whereas, health care facilities have made many efforts to keep patients and employees in a safe environment and have endeavored to minimize, to the extent possible, the risk of spread of the coronavirus disease; and Whereas, as a result of COVID-19 prevention measures, many unintended consequences have occurred to patients and residents of these facilities who were not diagnosed with COVID-19; and Whereas, the General Assembly has become aware of numerous patients and residents of health care facilities across our State who were not diagnosed with COVID-19, but as a result of visitation policies have been prohibited from having any visitors, including a spouse, parent, close family member, guardian, health care agent, or caregiver; and Whereas, many families have been unable to be physically present with their loved ones while in a hospital, nursing home, combination home, hospice care, adult care home, special care unit, or residential treatment setting for mental illness, developmental or intellectual disability, or substance use disorder, and have been limited to electronic video communications, if any, with the patient; [...]

Researcher blows the whistle on data integrity issues in Pfizer's vaccine trial.  In autumn 2020 Pfizer's chairman and chief executive, Albert Bourla, released an open letter to the billions of people around the world who were investing their hopes in a safe and effective covid-19 vaccine to end the pandemic.  "As I've said before, we are operating at the speed of science," Bourla wrote, explaining to the public when they could expect a Pfizer vaccine to be authorised in the United States.  But, for researchers who were testing Pfizer's vaccine at several sites in Texas during that autumn, speed may have come at the cost of data integrity and patient safety.  A regional director who was employed at the research organisation Ventavia Research Group has told The BMJ that the company falsified data, unblinded patients, employed inadequately trained vaccinators, and was slow to follow up on adverse events reported in Pfizer's pivotal phase III trial.  Staff who conducted quality control checks were overwhelmed by the volume of problems they were finding.  After repeatedly notifying Ventavia of these problems, the regional director, Brook Jackson, emailed a complaint to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  Ventavia fired her later the same day.  Jackson has provided The BMJ with dozens of internal company documents, photos, audio recordings, and emails.

If Science is the Jury, Masks' Days are Over.  The practice of mask-wearing has become contagious among many even though there is no data proving masks safely and effectively reduce viral transmission.  While the CDC claims "the benefits of wearing masks are well-established," the statement is provably false.  More than 150 studies prove masks are ineffective and many show harms especially to children.

CNN's 'Expert' Does a Complete 180, Now Admits 'Conspiracy Theorists' Were Right, School Closings did Harm Kids.  CNN has been backpeddling a ridiculous amount of their claims in the last few weeks since Zucker was fired.  Now the same doctor who wanted to 'make lives miserable' of people who refused the vax is now openly admitting that the vax does cause health issues.  In this segment she also admitted what conservatives have been saying all along, closing schools to kids who are the least impacted by COVID is actually bad for their mental health.  Will Fake News CNN go back and remove all of their posts that said the opposite?  Doubtful.  But this is yet another example of the fake news media trying to gaslight people as if they always believed what they previously labeled a 'conspiracy theory'.  So-called conspiracy theorists seem to have a much, much better track record in regards to COVID than the fake news media.  [Video clip]

What an amazing coincidence.  It's almost as if The Science has a political agenda.
Capitol physician drops Congress' mask mandate ahead of State of the Union address.  The US Capitol's attending physician said Sunday that [2/27/2022] masks will be optional on Capitol Hill starting Monday, just a day before President Joe Biden will deliver his State of the Union address in the House chamber.  Citing new guidance from US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Brian P. Monahan said in a memo that "individuals may choose to mask at any time, but it is no longer a requirement."

The CDC — which is withholding information — has a hidden agenda.  People say the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a messaging problem.  But the CDC's problem is not messaging — it's issuing flawed guidance while covering up the data.  Case in point: pushing boosters for young people.  After the Food and Drug Administration inexplicably bypassed its expert advisory committee to authorize boosters for all young people, the CDC director overruled her own experts' down vote of the boosters-for-all proposal.  That's the magic of a call from the White House.  Two top FDA officials, including the agency's vaccine center head, quit over White House pressure to authorize boosters for the young.  But after the FDA and CDC rammed through the recommendation, they made sure the public wouldn't see the real-world data.  Despite repeated pleas to release all its data, the CDC only posted stats on boosters in people over age 50.

NYC mayor announces tentative end date to city's vaccine, school mask mandates.  On Sunday, New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced a tentative end date to the city's vaccine and school mask mandates.  "More than a million New York City school children will return to class tomorrow.  If our numbers continue to show a low level of risk, we will remove the indoor mask mandate for public school students, effective Monday, March 7," wrote Adams.

California weighs punishing doctors for challenging 'contemporary scientific consensus' on COVID.  Disagreement with the "contemporary scientific consensus" on COVID-19 issues could be deemed "unprofessional conduct" for California doctors.  Democratic Assemblyman Evan Low's AB 2098 "may" be the subject of a March 17 hearing in the Assembly Committee on Business and Professions, where it was referred last week, according to the legislative history.  The bill, which was cowritten by five other California Assembly and Senate members, goes beyond regulating how California doctors can treat their own patients.  It opens their statements about COVID — public or private — to review by the Medical Board of California and the Osteopathic Medical Board of California, with possible sanctions to follow.  "Existing law requires the applicable board to take action against any licensed physician and surgeon who is charged with unprofessional conduct," according to the legislative counsel's summary, and the bill would "designate the dissemination or promotion of misinformation or disinformation" about COVID as "unprofessional conduct," without specifying what's prohibited.

The Totalitarian Left Begin Backing Toward the COVID Exits.  In case you missed it, March 1st has been declared as the unofficial end date for COVID-19 as a political weapon.  Domestically, the political leftists, who weaponized science for their totalitarian control, have decided it is time to head for the exits.  We are now supposed to ignore the last two years of brutal impact they inflicted on society.  You can always spot the shift by looking at how Hollywood and pop culture are triggered by the messaging from the political crew.  Once given the nod, there's a silent move toward the exits while everyone is distracted.  Of course, the exit strategy is always frustrating for those who have watched this play out.  The SNL segment is presented as humor, but when you recognize the inherent message, there's nothing funny about it.

How Government Is Adding to, Not Solving, Labor Shortages in Health Care and Elsewhere.  COVID-19 is not to blame for four-decade-high inflation and an unprecedented labor shortage.  Rather, bad government policies, originally enacted as part of a stated attempt to keep people safe from COVID-19, are to blame.  Instead of keeping people safe, government policies are doing more harm than good to public health and well-being and restricting the labor supply and artificially increasing demand for goods and services.  The current labor shortage is unlike any before in U.S. history, and the opposite of what was expected at the start of the pandemic.  But when policymakers establish programs that pay many people more money to be unemployed than to work and then keep those programs in place 18 months after the pandemic started — long after most workplaces reopened — it should not be surprising that fewer people will choose to work.  I estimate that employment today is between 4 million and 5 million workers below what it would have been absent the pandemic and absent policymakers' pandemic responses.

Pfizer's COVID vaccine is just 12% effective in preventing Omicron infection in children aged five to 11, new study reveals.  The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine has done little to protect five- to 11- year-olds from infection from the Omicron variant, data revealed by New York state officials on Monday shows.  Researchers at the New York State Department Health gauged infection rates of minors who have had the Pfizer jab made available to them.  Children were split into two age groups, one of children five to 11 and the other for children 12 to 17.  They found that the two-dose Pfizer shot was only 12 percent effective at preventing Omicron infection in the younger age group only one month after [receiving it].  The findings have far reaching implications on the use of the vaccines, and whether parents will want to get their children jabbed.

California, Oregon, Washington [will soon] Drop School Mask Mandates.  Following the updated CDC guidance that relaxed Covid-19 masking recommendations, California, Oregon, and Washington state will drop their mask mandates for K-12 public schools in mid-March.  "With declining case rates and hospitalizations across the West, California, Oregon and Washington are moving together to update their masking guidance," the governors announced in a joint statement Monday [2/28/2022].  The new directive will also apply to most indoor settings in all three states in addition to schools.  Many Republican-controlled states lifted their mask requirements months ago.

Poison Control Centers Warn About Toxic Chemical in At-Home COVID-19 Test Kits.  Some at-home rapid COVID-19 tests contain a toxic chemical that may be harmful to both children and adults, according to health officials.  The Cincinnati Drug and Poison Information Center reported an uptick in accidental exposures to a possibly toxic substance, sodium azide, in at-home COVID-19 test kits, according to a blog post.  Meanwhile, the National Poison Control Center issued a warning about the chemical.  "It is important to know that the extraction vial in many rapid antigen kits includes the chemical sodium azide as a preservative agent," the center said.  "The BinaxNow, BD Veritor, Flowflex, and Celltrion DiaTrust COVID-19 rapid antigen kits all contain this chemical."  Sodium azide is a colorless, odorless powder that testers dip cotton swabs into.  The chemical is found in herbicides, pest control agents, and airbags for cars.

See the CDC corruption for yourself.  [Scroll down]  Underreporting is more likely.  In fact, the term "overreporting" wasn't even mentioned in the reference they cite.  I can't even figure out how VAERS could be overreported since the system should eliminate duplicates unless there is a bug.  But the key thing here is they did absolutely nothing to attempt to quantify the underreporting factor (URF).  They absolutely know how to estimate it. [...] When I make the URF calculation using their methods and the best available data, the CDC then claims that they don't agree with my results.  They never say why.  My minimum URF comes to 41.  But that's for really serious stuff that will always get reported to VAERS.  For myocarditis, the doctors don't like to believe it could be caused by the vaccine so they typically won't report it.

Follow the Data, They Said, and Then Hid It.  Never before has the public had access to so much data on a virus and its effects.  For two years, data festooned the daily papers.  Dozens of websites assembled it.  We were all invited to follow the data, follow the science, and observe as scientists became our new overlords, instructing us how to feel, think, and behave in order to "flatten the curve," "drive down cases," "preserve capacity," "stay safe," and otherwise deploy all the powers of human will to respond to and manipulate disease outcomes.  We could watch it all in real time.  How beautiful were the waves, the curves, the bar charts, the sheer power of the technology. [...] It seems that with each month that's gone by, what seemed to be these beautiful pictures of reality have faded into a murky data quagmire in which we don't know what's real and what's not.  And ever more, the CDC itself has urged us to ignore what we do see (VAERS data, for example).

German Health Insurance Claims Show 31,254 Deaths Following COVID-19 Vaccines While Official Government Stats Report Only 2,255.  The entire COVID-19 vaccine narrative continues to come apart at the seams as yet another media report was published today in Germany stating that a large German health insurance company analyzed data from 10.9 million insured individuals regarding injuries and fatalities following COVID-19 vaccines during the first half of 2021 and into the 3rd quarter which showed significantly higher numbers than what the German government has reported.  This follows news reports out of the U.S. this past weekend where it was revealed that the CDC, FDA, and NIH contained data about significant COVID-19 vaccine injuries and deaths that were not being reported to the public.

New Zealand High Court ENDS Jacinda Ardern's Vaccine Mandate:  "It's a Gross Violation of Human Rights".  New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was left reeling on Friday [2/25/2022] after a High Court ruled that her vaccine mandate represented a "gross violation of human rights" for New Zealanders.  The landmark case means that the police and NZDF cannot be fired for refusing to take the experimental vaccine.  This case will be used to overthrow all of Ardern's illegal mandates in New Zealand.  Justice Francis Cooke ruled that ordering frontline police officers and Defence staff to be vaccinated or face losing their job was not a "reasonably justified" breach of the Bill of Rights.

List Of Over 100 Studies Proving How COVID Vaccines Are More Harmful Than What We're Being Told.  I will say this, when all of this is over and it will end, it has to, then we must get accountability for it is way past simple mistakes.  Some of this is malfeasance, yes greed that will wrap itself up into any matter, but there is real malfeasance.  Anyone who did wrong in this COVID, under Trump and Biden, anyone, anyone who profited, anyone who abused their position and anyone who costed lives, must sit in a jail cell for some time.  This is part of the healing, not simple mea culpas.

Resistance Not Futile:  History Lesson On How To End Vaccine Mandates.  If you're wondering how we'll ever put an end to these draconian COVID-19 mandates that are destroying lives and sanity across the world, take heart.  History can serve us in this regard.  The parallels between the COVID-19 pandemic and its countermeasures that of previous smallpox pandemics are fascinating to behold, and therein we can also find the answer to our current predicament.  Smallpox, a highly infectious and disfiguring illness with a fatality rate around 30%, has been with us for many centuries, probably thousands of years.  During the last four centuries, forced mass vaccination has been a recurring countermeasure relied on by government during these kinds of outbreaks, often with devastating results, and there have always been large portions of society that opposed it.

Neurological Injuries Soar After Shots : Strokes, Bels Palsy, Paralysis, MS.  An examination of the FDA and CDC's Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) confirms that deaths and injuries due to neurological issues following COVID-19 injections have skyrocketed, when compared to the same adverse events reported following all FDA-approved vaccines for the previous 30 years.  And while none of the U.S. Health Agencies have published or made public their research on these post-vaccine neurological injuries, many medical journals have.  The COVID-19 experimental vaccines, which were given emergency use authorization illegally, should have been immediately pulled from the market at least a year ago.

Mandates And Lockdowns Failed Miserably, But Are Still Being Pushed?  Scientists the world over have done a deep dive into the unprecedented lockdowns and injection mandates that characterized the COVID-19 pandemic response.  Over and over again, the results confirm what many instinctively knew all along — that these totalitarian schemes didn't work and may have caused more harm than good.  Despite the writing on the wall, health officials and academics continue to defend the Draconian measures.  It's difficult to admit wrongdoing, especially of this magnitude, but sooner or later it will become widely known that, as Jeffrey Tucker, founder and president of the Brownstone Institute, put it, "these interventions turned a manageable pandemic into a catastrophe."

CDC No Longer Requiring Masks on School Buses.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Feb. 25 it is no longer requiring students and others on school buses to wear masks, but is keeping the mask mandate for all other forms of public transportation in place.  Effective Friday, "CDC does not require wearing of masks on buses or vans operated by public or private school systems, including early care and education/child care programs," the agency said in an update on its website.  The CDC typically only doles out guidance but under federal law, a top official at the agency on Jan. 29, 2021, issued an order requiring masks on "public transportation conveyances" and at "transportation hubs."  The order covers airplanes, ships, ferries, trains, subways, buses, and taxis traveling within the United States, or leaving or entering the country.  It also covers airports and other transportation hubs such as bus terminals.

SAG Awards:  Hollywood Celebrities Go Maskless While LAUSD Students [are] Still Forced to Mask Up.  Hollywood celebrities went completely maskless for the SAG Awards on Sunday at the same time that thousands of children across Los Angeles County are still being forced to wear masks indoors in school.  The SAG Awards allowed the stars to forego masks despite previously announcing that masks would be required.  The change in policy appears to be in line with recent changes to local health guidance.

Medical Institutions Ignore The Obvious Damage Mask Mandates Are Doing To Children's Language Development.  This month the Centers for Disease Control changed its age-based language proficiency milestones.  The new standard stipulates that 75 percent of children should be able to say 50 words by 30 months rather than the previous standard of 50 percent of kids saying 50 words by 24 months.  This relaxation of standards is in sharp contrast to childhood language guidelines from the Mayo Clinic, Stanford University, Cleveland Clinic, and Kaiser Permanente, all of which stipulate children should be able to say 50 words at 24 months.  The American Speech Language Association notes that speaking fewer than 50 words at 24 months constitutes a language disorder, and other authorities maintain that by 30 months a toddler should be able to say as many as 450 words and employ complex language skills such as use of pronouns, plurals, negation, and tenses.

A National Vaccine Pass Has Quietly Rolled Out.  Even as the omicron variant loosens its grip on the world, destinations continue to require travelers to show proof of vaccination.  And, increasingly, a paper CDC vaccination card is not cutting it.  While the United States government has not issued a federal digital vaccine pass, a national standard has nevertheless emerged.  To date, 21 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico offer accessibility to the SMART Health Card, a verifiable digital proof of vaccination developed through the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI), a global coalition of public and private stakeholders including Microsoft, Salesforce, Oracle, the Mayo Clinic and other health and tech heavyweights.

Dr. Ben Carson:  Leftist Schools are Creating "A Whole Generation of Pathological People".  Dr. Fauci and the CDC can say whatever they want about the effectiveness of masks in stopping Covid.  This isn't about them, their claims, or the accuracy of those claims, nor was Dr. Ben Carson's speech on CPAC.  Rather, his speech hit on a different aspect of the masks, one that the left is loath to bring up: how forcing kids to stay masked at school is affecting their mental and emotional development.  Speaking on that issue, one that's quite the hot topic considering how schools are tenaciously defending their masking policies, Carson had this to say about the development of children and how facial expressions play into that development:  "You look at the mask-wearing, particularly at a young age when you're trying to develop your sociological image of yourself.  And a lot of that is because of positive feedback that you get by looking at people's facial expressions."

Nearly half of Biden's 500M free COVID tests [are] still unclaimed.  Nearly half of the 500 million free COVID-19 tests the Biden administration recently made available to the public still have not been claimed as virus cases plummet and people feel less urgency to test.  Wild demand swings have been a subplot in the pandemic, from vaccines to hand sanitizer, along with tests.  On the first day of the White House test giveaway in January, COVIDtests.gov received over 45 million orders.  Now officials say fewer than 100,000 orders a day are coming in for the packages of four free rapid tests per household, delivered by the U.S. Postal Service.

Union wants FDNY to probe 6 deaths since December.  Members of the FDNY rank-and-file gathered for two funerals this week, as some among the department expressed concern about six deaths involving active personnel since early December.  The ages of those who died ranged from 31 to 60.  Three of the deaths happened off-duty.  The three that happened on duty were under review by the Office of Chief Medical Examiner.  The cause of death in the first incident, involving probationary firefighter Vincent Malveaux, who was 31, was still "pending further study," the ME said nearly three months after Malveaux collapsed during training on Randalls Island at the FDNY Academy.  He died Dec. 3 at Harlem Hospital.

If He Wasn't A Swamp Creature, Francis Collins Would Be Banned From YouTube For Covid Misinformation.  It was December 2020.  Francis Collins, then director of the National Institutes of Health, was just beginning his public push for the Covid-19 vaccines.  Hoping to enlist support from evangelical Christians, Collins granted an extended YouTube interview to his friend Russell Moore, leader at the time of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.  During their interview, Collins tried to allay fears that mRNA vaccines might be unsafe because they inject foreign mRNA into the body that could linger there.  Collins gave a comforting fact:  "The RNA lives a very short time in your body.  It is quickly degraded because RNA has a very short half-life.  So there's no residual of what you've been injected with beyond probably a few hours."  Under the banner of fighting "misinformation," the same message was spread by other health authorities.

Six Key Battles Currently Being Fought In The Culture War.  Nothing about Covid has ever been contained to the medical/scientific sphere.  If anything, it's always been responded to more politically than purely scientifically.  And now, despite the science clearly saying Covid is mild and endemic and even politicians in LA, NYC, and DC admitting defeat, there are still tens of millions of scared, panicked, and indoctrinated voters who will keep on keeping on with their masks and quest to shame the unvaccinated.

This study is highly questionable, in my opinion:
New study finds Wuhan market likely origin source of COVID-19.  A market in Wuhan, China, that sold live animals likely was the point of origin for the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a pair of studies released Saturday [2/26/2022].  "When you look at all of the evidence together, it's an extraordinarily clear picture that the pandemic started at the Huanan market," said Michael Worobey, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Arizona who co-authored both studies, told the New York Times.  The studies have yet to be published in a scientific journal.  Researchers analyzed data from a variety of sources to seek clues to how the pandemic began.  They concluded it was present in live mammals sold at the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in late 2019.

The Plague You Should Be Freaking Out About Is Government Abuse Of Power.  For anyone still naïve, stubborn, or fanatical enough to believe the Covid tyranny we've been suffocating under for the past two years is about a virus, let the events unfolding in Canada disabuse you of that illusion.  Invoking the Emergencies Act to freeze bank accounts, conduct mass arrests of peaceful demonstrators and protest organizers, target reporters and photographers, and establish "red zones" and checkpoints, all in response to a mobilized citizenry that is weary of ineffective, illiberal, and discriminatory Covid restrictions — this all smacks of dictatorship, not democracy.  It certainly has nothing to do with public health. [...] Meanwhile, jurisdictions around the world are hastily rolling back Covid edicts, lamely pointing to the usual fake science.  Behind the scenes, governments understand what their counterparts in places like Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and France seem determined to ignore: the people are no longer buying their narrative.

The Collapsing Covid Narrative is Being Replaced with Putin and Ukraine.  As of this week, Iceland is the first country in the world to completely drop ALL Covid measures.  There will be no lockdowns or social restrictions.  There will be no mandatory Covid testing and if you happen to catch Covid you do not have to isolate.  There will be no vaccine passports and no vaccine mandates.  Anyone regardless of their vaccination status can travel to the country with no test required.  The unvaccinated will not face any form of discrimination or exclusion from society.  Iceland is returning to going back to life as it was before Covid.  This by itself would be astounding enough given that Iceland is in the midst of a massive Covid surge and posting record cases even as we speak.  If you did not know, the vaccination rate in Iceland is some 80% of the total population which means that around 90% of the adult population is fully vaccinated.  Obviously, the vaccines have done absolutely nothing to stop or even slow down the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.  Quite on the contrary, they seem to have led to its increase.

Pfizer is Funding Facebook's Fact-Checking Partner.  Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc. is sponsoring journalism training programs utilized by Facebook to train its "fact-checking" partners and censor stories and posts critical of COVID-19 vaccines.  The International Center For Journalists (ICFJ) — itself funded by the Open Society Foundations amongst others — is partnered with Meta, Facebook's parent company, on its "Journalism Project" initiative.  In turn, Facebook relies on the journalists funded and trained by ICFJ to "combat misinformation" on its platform through its controversial fact-checking operation.  Together, Facebook and the ICFJ have funded news outlets based in Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East with a focus on COVID-19 reporting.  Facebook's fact-checking partner ICFJ, however, also receives financial backing from Pfizer, with its recently announced 2022 Arthur F. Burns Fellowship — named after a former Federal Reserve chairman — lists the pharmaceutical giant as one of the program's sponsors.

California versus Free Speech on COVID.  [Scroll down]  Fauci, Walensky, and gang have misled us about the nature of the virus, a likely gain-of function product of the Wuhan lab; the risks of the virus to children, which are negligible; the prevention of disease by masks; the marginal treatment benefits of remdesivir and potential utility of multiple alternative compounds; the development of the vaccines, which did not include testing of long-term efficacy and adverse effects; and the declining efficacy and uncertain safety of the vaccines, regarding which the CDC has suppressed important data.  It may come as a great surprise, therefore, to learn that Fauci and friends are not the targets of this legislation.

9 Year Old Gets Locked Out In The Cold For Not Wearing A Mask.  A 9-year-old girl was locked out and prevented from entering her classroom in below-freezing weather this morning at Summerville Elementary in Tuolumne, California for not wearing a mask.  When the VP was questioned on these tactics, she responded "I'm just doing my job."  [Video clip]

CDC Announces Indoor Masking No Longer Required Just Before Biden's SOTU.  The indoor use of face masks is no longer required, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Friday, just before President Biden's State of the Union Address on Tuesday.  Without a change in the science of coronavirus transmission, the CDC lowered the bar and put forth new guidance that places more than half of U.S. counties under low or medium risk of coronavirus, where making up is no longer suggested.  "That accounts for roughly 70 percent of Americans," NBC News reported.

CDC Drastically Alters Key Measure That Influences Mask Mandates Across US.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Feb. 25 drastically changed a key measure that is used by officials across the country to determine whether or not to require mask-wearing.  The federal agency now says nearly three-quarters of Americans don't need to wear masks because they live in areas with low or medium community risk from COVID-19.  The dramatic switch comes because the CDC switched from only using COVID-19 cases as a factor and are taking into account other metrics, including hospitalizations.  "This updated approach focuses on directing our prevention efforts toward protecting people at high risk for severe ailments and preventing hospitals and healthcare systems from being overwhelmed," Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the CDC's director, told reporters on a call.

'Those Who Make Peaceful Revolution Impossible Will Make Violent Revolution Inevitable'.  When Trump closed travel from China, he was called a racist.  When he discussed examining existing inexpensive treatments such as Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin he was mocked.  When he discussed comments from DHS about different possible cures they accused him of recommending people drink bleach.  When he wanted to balance keeping the economy healthy with keeping citizens healthy, they implemented draconian lockdowns.  When he implemented Project Warp Speed to streamline regulations to develop a vaccine and promised one by the end of the year, they said it couldn't be done and regardless, they wouldn't trust it if one was.  Whatever he did, from making ventilators available to building temporary hospitals to purchasing record amounts of PPE equipment, it was never enough and, for good measure, they accused him of killing tens of thousands of Americans.  Beyond the personal attacks, the left used COVID as a cover for stealing the 2020 election.

CDC to significantly ease pandemic mask guidelines Friday.  The Biden administration will significantly loosen federal mask-wearing guidelines to protect against COVID-19 transmission on Friday [2/25/2022], according to two people familiar with the matter, meaning most Americans will no longer be advised to wear masks in indoor public settings.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday will announce a change to the metrics it uses to determine whether to recommend face coverings, shifting from looking at COVID-19 case counts to a more holistic view of risk from the coronavirus to a community.

CDC [is] Expected to Drop [its] Mask Guidance That Nobody Pays Attention To.  According to the Associated Press, the CDC is likely to strongly loosen their mask guidance tomorrow, dropping the recommendation that masks should be worn indoors.  That said, I'm not sure how many places even have a mask wearing policy any longer.

CDC: Some of you should wait longer before getting your second vaccination.  In the states and cities where immunity passports are still required, people have been told that they need to be "fully vaccinated" to be in compliance.  For most people, that means two initial shots spaced three (for Pfizer) or four weeks (for Moderna) apart followed by a booster shot roughly six months later.  Of course, those definitions have been changed by the CDC on a regular basis.  They recently suggested that the boosters should be given as soon as four months after the initial injections because people's immunity was fading too quickly.  But now they're even walking back the spacing of the initial two shots, at least for some people.

More evidence Covid was tinkered with in a lab?  Fresh suspicion that Covid may have been tinkered with in a lab emerged today after scientists found genetic material owned by Moderna in the virus's spike protein.  They identified a tiny snippet of code that is identical to part of a gene patented by the vaccine maker three years before the pandemic.  It was discovered in SARS-CoV-2's unique furin cleavage site, the part that makes it so good at infecting people and separates it from other coronaviruses.  The structure has been one of the focal points of debate about the virus's origin, with some scientists claiming it could not have been acquired naturally.

Has Anyone Actually Seen Anthony Fauci Recently?  Once prominent on virtually every media outlet available, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, seems to have disappeared without a trace.  He was seemingly last spotted a week ago, giving an interview to Reuters, which reported that Fauci says that it's time to start "inching" back to normal. [...] Fauci's made a name for himself over the last year as a promoter of the worst kind of panic porn, which the media that was so eager to have him on was more than happy to play into.  Conflicting messaging on masks, vaccines, and mitigation efforts, as well as overhyping less dangerous variants, all severely diminished the amount of trust people have in our health arrogant and unapologetic authority figures.

The Covid Cartel Lied, People Died.  Now They Say It's All Your Fault.  In July 2021, President Biden, members of his administration, and the rest of the Covid cartel — federal health agencies, Big Pharma, legacy media, and Big Tech — began blaming the unvaccinated for the prolonged pandemic and calling it a "pandemic of the unvaccinated."  On July 16, 2021, Salvador Rizzo, writing as the Washington Post's fact-checker, and therefore an esteemed member of the Covid cartel, awarded Johnson four Pinocchios for stating what was objectively true:  the CDC's Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) had already reported "over 5,200 deaths" on their "early warning system."  On August 3, 2021, Israel's Health Ministry reported smashing a five-month record of new cases, the vast majority in the fully vaccinated population.  On Sept. 1, the New England Journal of Medicine published a letter reporting that Covid vaccine protection among 19,000 health care workers in San Diego went from 94-plus percent March through June to 66 percent in July.

CDC Is Refusing To Release Data On The Effects Of Boosters On 18-49 Year Olds.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has withheld vast swaths of the information it holds about the impact of COVID-19, leading to anger from the scientific community and speculation the agency is not releasing the data because it weakens the case for booster shots in certain demographics.  Two weeks ago, the CDC published the first significant data on the effectiveness of boosters in adults younger than 65.  But the agency, led by Dr Rochelle Walensky, did not share the information on those aged 18-49, who are considered to be the least likely to benefit from a booster.  [Video clip]

N.J. spent more than $90M on COVID vaccine hotline in 2021, records show.  When COVID vaccines first became available in January of last year to more than 4 million people, there was a stampede for appointments.  Frustrated residents spent hours scouring dozens of vaccine provider websites, trying to secure a coveted slot.  Some would wake up in the middle of the night to forage for new listings.  The lack of a streamlined or centralized system was especially disconcerting to seniors, who said they had trouble booking appointments online as demand greatly outweighed supply.  The state launched its "NJ Vaccine Scheduling System" website on Jan. 5 and even though hundreds of thousands of people signed up, the site was not actually helping people get appointments.  It only notified residents when they were eligible and provided a list of vaccine sites.

French Tennis Star Gael Monfils Blames Booster Shot For His Health Problem Resulting in Withdrawal from Tournament.  On Tuesday, French Number One tennis star player announced his withdrawal from next week's tournament after suffering a potential adverse reaction following his Covid-19 booster shot.  Gael Monfils, 35, announced his withdrawal from next week's Davis Cup on his social media account due to health problems.  "Hello everyone, I wanted to give you some news following my recent withdrawals from tournaments.  I suffered a minor health glitch (probably following my third dose of vaccine)," Monfils revealed on his Twitter account.  "On the advice of my doctor, I have decided to take some time to rest.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to play the Davis Cup next week," he added.

New JAMA paper show Ivermectin blows the COVID vaccines out of the water.  Remember that "horse dewormer" that the FDA, CDC, NIH, CNN, and Sanjay Gupta all told you not to use?  A new paper recently published in the Journal of the AMA (JAMA) shows that Ivermectin works way better than the COVID vaccine in keeping you from dying from COVID.  [Illustration]  This was an open-label randomized trial done in Malaysia with around 250 patients in each arm.  One arm got IVM + standard of care, the other arm got the standard of care.  Of course, JAMA never would have published this if they thought that people would actually look at the data. [...] Read the paper if you want the truth.  If you want to be misled, just read the abstract.

In the End, Sweden Did It Right.  What if two years ago, when COVID-19 first hit these shores, our politicians hadn't panicked?  What if the government did what it has done every time we were confronted with a deadly virus, such as the Spanish flu or polio?  Instead of locking down our schools, churches and businesses, the government could have simply informed citizens of the risks of getting sick and urged people to be extra careful about hygiene, stay out of crowded places and protect the vulnerable.  It turns out there was one country that mostly rejected lockdowns and let life go on as normal as possible under dire circumstances.  That country was Sweden.  There were some restrictions and temporary lockdowns, but they were minimal.  The hero of this story is Anders Tegnell, Sweden's chief epidemiologist.  He was Sweden's Anthony Fauci, but unlike the now-widely discredited Fauci, Tegnell eschewed lockdowns.

France Deactivates 4 Million Vaccine Passports.  This past week, the French Government began deactivating the vaccine passports of nearly four million double-vaxxed citizens because they still have not taken the booster, according to France News 24.  Individuals who have had their passes taken away will effectively be relegated to unvaxxed status and no longer be able to engage in most aspects of society.  Although some are willing to take the booster, most were caught completely off guard when they checked their app and found their privileges had been revoked.

Masking Facial Expression in Children.  We humans are social creatures that communicate through complex languages and facial gestures.  Our personalities are ingrained in these unique expressions, which impart visual messages that words alone cannot convey.  Facial expressions provoke a variety of cognitive processes, including emotional gesticulations that elicit rapid responses and ostensive ones that signal a willingness to communicate.  A hidden face deprives us of one of the most basic aspects of humanity and the ability to constructively interact in social settings.  Face masking children constitutes a sacrifice on a scale that can only be made in response to a danger of proportionate magnitude.

Bill Gates admits Omicron creating natural immunity.  Microsoft founder Bill Gates admitted the Omicron variant has created a high level of natural immunity in the world.  He recently made these comments at a security conference.  Gates added, the risk of infection has decreased dramatically while citing multiple surveys conducted in Africa.  The former Microsoft CEO described the Omicron variant as a type of vaccine while also calling the revelation sad.

If there was any benefit to masking kids, it's long since disappeared.  States around the nation, including Democratic ones such as New York and California, are lifting indoor mask mandates.  But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention refuses to budge.  It continues to recommend indoor masking in communities with substantial or high transmission — essentially the entire country — a stance that is particularly exasperating and harmful in regards to schools.  The agency recommends masking all students ages 2 and older.  In congressional testimony, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky insisted that school mask mandates continue.  The following day, at a White House briefing, Walensky, after acknowledging rapidly falling COVID cases, hospitalizations and deaths, said the agency would reconsider its guidelines, but gave no indication any update would apply to schools.  Two days later, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief White House medical adviser, echoed his overcautious colleague, telling CNN that ending school masking would be "risky."

Frustration continues over ongoing mask mandate in CA schools.  Some families are reaching a boiling point over the school mask mandate at Poway Unified School District.  From heated school board meetings in Santee to anti-mask rallies in Poway, young children and their parents are becoming more vocal over California's indoor school mask mandate that has no expiration date.  PUSD superintendent Marian Kim Phelps wrote a two-page letter to Governor Gavin Newsom and the county's health officer Dr. Wilma Wooten last week asking for an immediate time frame as to when the mandate would be lifted.  California is one of 13 states in the country that have yet to lift the mask mandate in schools.

CDC withholding evidence concerning COVID vaccine safety is scientific fraud.  Basically, a non-governmental spokesperson for the "official" public health scientific community is throwing Rochelle Walinsky under the bus, and saying that the politicians forced us to commit scientific fraud by withholding key data.  The Global Summit Doctors and other brave medical practitioners who have stood up to the lies and tyranny -- who have been harassed, jobs lost, medical licenses lost, smeared and libeled are right.  The data are being withheld.  The main stream media owes a whole lot of us scientist[s] and physicians a huge apology.  The main stream media has to stop being the mouthpiece for the government.  This is not communist China!  The government owes the American people a huge apology.  People in the government who have lied to the American people need to be charged and must be held legally accountable.  We the people must demand to see ALL of the data from the CDC and the FDA.

The Centers For Disease Control's Lies Have Destroyed Its Legitimacy.  On August 6, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control released a report that the agency claimed showed "Vaccination Offers Higher Protection than Previous COVID-19 Infection." This assertion came amidst a public battle with Sen. Rand Paul, as the CDC released this data from Kentucky, Paul's home state.  Yet after indisputable scientific evidence continued to pile up in favor of natural immunity, the CDC finally capitulated on January 19, 2022, recognizing the superiority of natural immunity over vaccination alone:  "Between May and November 2021, people who were unvaccinated and did not have a prior COVID-19 infection remained at the highest risk of infection and hospitalization, while those who were previously infected, both with or without prior vaccination, had the greatest protection."

CDC Admits They are Keeping Vaccine and COVID Data Hidden Because They Worry People Will Talk About It.  The New York Times reports quotes from the CDC spokesperson about why the public health organization refuses to release data on COVID-19 and the vaccines.  Nothing quite builds public confidence like the CDC saying they cannot release information because they are worried people will talk about it.  The CDC basically says they do not want to release the data because they are worried people will talk about the data, and not the official CDC interpretation of the data.  So, the CDC says, trust us... we've looked at the data... it says good things, promise.

Will We Learn the Right Lesson in Our Recent Failed Social Experiment with Mask Mandates?  Modern progressives have been particularly susceptible to the seductions of masking propaganda over the past two years, as it was presented as scientific innovation overturning the ignorance of the past.  They fancy themselves enlightened sophisticates who are uniquely able to grasp such supposedly novel ideas, you see.  A piece of cloth over mouth and nose, you say?  Why, the mouth and nose are often the sources of respiratory viral spread.  Ingenious!  Why didn't anyone in the twentieth century think of that?  Thank goodness for Dr. Fauci and "the Science!"  It never occurs to them that the scientific consensus against public masking had been shaped and preserved for a hundred years by scientists and public health officials who also recognized that wearing a barrier over one's mouth and nose might provide some marginal benefit in preventing the spread of a virus.

New data:  Protection from COVID boosters may last for years, avoiding need for fourth shot near term.  Note the word "protection" in the headline, which is different from "antibodies." Antibodies always fade in time; it takes around four months after a third COVID shot, according to the best data we have.  But there's more to immunity than just antibodies.  There are also T cells and B cells, which work together to help the immune system form a "memory" of a particular virus. (Or the spike protein of a particular virus, which is how the vaccines work.) Once you have that "memory," you can generate new antibodies rapidly to neutralize that virus if you're infected with it.

CDC Is Hiding Data — To Protect You From The Truth.  The wheels are coming off.  People are catching on.

The C.D.C. Isn't Publishing Large Portions of the Covid Data It Collects.  For more than a year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has collected data on hospitalizations for Covid-19 in the United States and broken it down by age, race and vaccination status.  But it has not made most of the information public.  When the C.D.C. published the first significant data on the effectiveness of boosters in adults younger than 65 two weeks ago, it left out the numbers for a huge portion of that population: 18- to 49-year-olds, the group least likely to benefit from extra shots, because the first two doses already left them well-protected.  The agency recently debuted a dashboard of wastewater data on its website that will be updated daily and might provide early signals of an oncoming surge of Covid cases.  Some states and localities had been sharing wastewater information with the agency since the start of the pandemic, but it had never before released those findings.

Canadian Covid Care Alliance FAQ.  The internationally known Freedom Convoy, led by the Canadian truckers, was sparked by a federal government mandate on January 15th, 2022.  The change in classification now requires 'not COVID doubly vaccinated' Canadian truckers to quarantine for 2 weeks upon re-entry to Canada while fully vaccinated truckers would continue to be recognized as essential workers with no such requirement.  In short, the non-vaccinated and partially vaccinated truckers were to be re-classified from essential to non-essential and coerced into getting doubly vaccinated to preserve their freedom of border crossing and to earn a living.  It is now clear that both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals can both catch and transmit the virus, and if they have COVID-19, this is with an equivalent viral load.  Prime Minister Trudeau has demonstrated this for us all when, despite being doubly vaccinated and further boosted, he contracted COVID-19 during the Trucker's Convoy arriving in Ottawa.

MSNBC Reporter Admits Democratic Base Doesn't Want to Go Back to 'Normal'.  This is really a remarkable admission from MSNBC reporter Alex Seitz-Wald, who gave a grim assessment of the Democrats' challenge in lifting COVID-19 restrictions across the board and returning the United States to some sense of "normal."  A recent poll showed a whopping 65% of Democrats who believe it "too early to rescind mask mandates" as opposed to just 20% of Republicans who think that way.  How does that mesh with Democratic governors who are in the process of lifting mask mandates in their states?

Democratic mayor holds maskless party weeks after reinstating indoor mandate.  Weeks after reinstating New Orleans's indoor mask mandate for public buildings and schools, the city's Democratic mayor, LaToya Cantrell, was seen partying maskless Friday at an indoor Mardi Gras event.  Over 100 videos showing Cantrell's party at Gallier Hall could be seen online before they were taken down, according to a report.

I cannot say more today.  It is hard what the police are doing; clearly it is illegal; they should stand back; they need to think about all the unvaccinated truckers who took a stand and are at risk of losing everything... their livelihoods... the police must take a stand and band together and say this is wrong [...] The ones doing the arresting, I am very troubled by and outraged by.  Trampling with horses etc.  This is devastating.  I am shocked by this... they are supposed to uphold and enforce the law, not illegal acts dictated by a wrongful deranged government. [...] I love the blue, I support police, I start there, and I am fully disclosing.  But I know when they are wrong and here they are.  They must be willing to band together now and say 'NO' to the Trudeau govn.  If the police united in the numbers like the truckers, that would be transformational... will help fix this... there is noting illegal or wrong with what the truckers are doing[.]

UN Planes In Ontario, North Bay - Shocked Canadians Believe They Carry The "Green Shirt" Officers In Ottawa.  Who would have thought that Canada would ever be a spark plug for a freedom movement against tyranny?  Everything started when Ottawa's police chief was ousted amid criticism of his inaction against the trucker protests that have paralyzed Canada's capital for over two weeks, while the number of blockades maintained by demonstrators at the U.S. border dropped to just one.  The twin developments came a day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked Canada's Emergencies Act and threatened to take tough legal and financial measures to end the unrest in Ottawa and beyond by protesters decrying the country's COVID-19 restrictions and Trudeau's government.  Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly lost his job after failing to move decisively against the bumper-to-bumper demonstration by hundreds of truck drivers according to the mainstream media.  Local sources alleged that he just didn't want to follow orders that would require stomping on Canada's democracy!

The Reason for the Police Violence in Ottawa is Not What You Think.  The black clad army of mercenaries and police brutalizing a peaceful protest in Ottawa this weekend has been planned for years.  It is overkill for a reason.  It is theatre.  It is an othering, a willful flagrant statement on the future of the working class everywhere.  It instructs them:  you will die.  If not now, then sometime in the next ten years.  Your towns will be gutted, your jobs will evaporate, you will scramble for pennies until you fall over dead and your children will have nothing to look forward to.  You are Tutsi, you are Jew, you are Kulak, you are compromador, you are Othered.  You are headed for the slagheap of history.  Fight back and you will be deemed domestic terrorists and encamped indefinitely.  This week, Canada's intelligentsia unmasked themselves as fully on side of this demonic enterprise, competing to hate on the truckers.


NYC Mayor:  Vax mandates don't work but we're sticking with them anyway.  Slowly but surely, the various COVID mandates are being relaxed or removed around the country.  That's even true in some blue states, where elected officials have come to realize that people are done with the pandemic and the restrictions being imposed on them in response to it.  But not everyone is ready to abandon ship entirely.  New York State still has a face mask mandate in place in the schools, though the Governor is ready to "review" it again this week to decide if the time has come to lift it.  Similarly, in New York City, there is a vaccination mandate in place for all municipal workers and people are still losing their jobs every week if they refuse to comply, despite the fact that an increasing body of evidence suggests that these mandates do little if anything to further combat the pandemic.

Mo Brooks:  U.S. Should Grant Canadian Truckers Political Asylum.  Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL) suggests an outside-the-box approach to taking on any truck driver shortages the United States faces.  During an interview [...], Brooks, a candidate for U.S. Senate in Alabama, proposed granting Canadian truckers protesting the Trudeau government political asylum in the United States.  Brooks applauded the efforts of the so-called Freedom Convoy truckers before making his pitch.

No vax needed for performers, presenters at Oscars, different standard for nominees and guests.  In a liberal haven like Hollywood, you'd think that a blatant show of COVID-19 mandate hypocrisy would be avoided in order to avoid the publicity yet you would be mistaken.  There is a distinction made between performers and presenters at this year's Oscars ceremony versus award nominees and guests attending the ceremony.  The logic escapes me here.  The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided that the coronavirus safety measures will include requiring all nominees and guests to show proof of vaccination and at least two negative P.C.R. tests.  The audience is expected to be 2,500 in total attendance, including the nominees.  However, performers and presenters will be required to be tested but no need to show proof of vaccination will be necessary.  The audience in the room has to prove vaccination but the performers and presenters don't have a requirement of being vaccinated.  Does the virus magically know where the stage stops and the audience seating areas begin?

FDNY union leader requests probe into possible correlation between recent department deaths and COVID vaccines.  An FDNY union leader wants the department to investigate whether three recent firefighter deaths resulted from city-mandated COVID-19 jabs.  The request from Uniformed Fire Officers Association President James McCarthy comes after the line-of-duty deaths of Lt. Joseph Maiello, 53, who was found dead in a Staten Island firehouse after a Christmas shift, and Firefighter Jesse Gerhard, 33, who died at his firehouse in Far Rockaway, Queens, after a medical episode Wednesday [2/16/2022].  McCarthy wants the FDNY to include in its vaccine probe the death of Probationary Firefighter Vincent Malveaux, 31, who died Dec. 2 at the FDNY Training Academy on Randalls Island after suffering a medical episode believed to be a seizure.

The Gathering Storm in the West.  Canada is now governed by absurdism, and it is symptomatic of an ailing Western elite.  Liberal Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau last week invoked martial law to arrest and financially destroy truckers on the charge that their largely peaceful protests are "dismantling the Canadian economy" that had already been dismantled for two years under some of the most draconian lockdowns in the world.  The trucker "sect," Trudeau added, is guilty of felonious "unacceptable views."  But his rhetoric still cannot square the circle of demonizing vital workers while conceding he cannot run his country without them.  He has invoked the Emergencies Act for the first time in the law's 34-year history, even as the highly infectious Omicron variant wanes after spreading natural immunity and yet proving relatively mild in its effects.  Trudeau has neither science nor good governance on his side, especially given how civil the protests have been.  The truckers, who more or less work in solitary cabs, are better informed about the "science" and are themselves mostly vaccinated.

Very quietly, 2 federal agencies are studying post-vaccination neurological issues.  With no public announcements, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) both are studying neurological problems that have appeared in people after receiving the Covid vaccines.  In a scoop, Zachary Stieber of the Epoch Times has confirmed via emails that the studies are underway.

US Agencies Quietly Studying Reports of Post-Vaccination Neurological Issues.  Two U.S. agencies have been quietly studying neurological problems that have appeared in people who have had COVID-19 vaccines, The Epoch Times has found.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) have been conducting separate research projects into post-vaccination neurological issues, which have manifested with symptoms like facial paralysis and brain fog and have been linked in some cases with the vaccines, according to emails reviewed by The Epoch Times.  One attempt to gain understanding of a problem that experts around the world are struggling to understand is being carried out by Dr. Janet Woodcock, who was acting commissioner of the FDA until Feb. 17.  Woodcock, now the FDA's principal deputy director, has been personally evaluating neurologic side effects from the COVID-19 vaccines since at least Sept. 13, 2021, according to the emails, many of which have not been reported on previously.

The police in Paris did something entirely unexpected.  It's been terribly disappointing, both inside and outside of America, to see police forces rally to enforce tyrannical, unprincipled, and often illegal or unconstitutional government responses to COVID. [...] And the fact is that, in Year One, COVID was enough of a mystery that people played along.  By Year Two, though, not only were people tired of the restrictions on a disease that proved to have an average mortality of something less than 1%, they were deeply concerned that the so-called vaccines were as dangerous as, if not more dangerous than, COVID itself.  As time went on, they pointed out that the vaccines didn't vaccinate, that people were dying or becoming terribly ill in reaction to the jabs, and that the various governments were hiding data.  The world's Western governments, however, including Biden's administration and most Democrat governors, have seen the vaccines as the perfect way to separate good, obedient leftist citizens from bad, disobedient, independent-minded citizens.  The vaccine mandates were especially useful with police forces because all the independent-minded officers got fired.  The ones who remained were happy to do anything for their paychecks and were even actively on board with the whole mandate regime.

Leftist Holdouts Just Cannot Ditch the Masks.  After two years, the media acknowledged that cloth face masks don't work to prevent the spread of COVID.  Now our governors can align scientific consensus with policy.  After CNN and The Atlantic reported that face masks don't work, California and nine other Democrat governors revoked their state indoor mask mandates.  That leaves only four states with continuing statewide mask mandates.  Has the evidence on masks changed?  No.  The CDC reviewed the scientific literature pre-pandemic and highlighted that ten high-quality randomized controlled trials (RCT) demonstrated that masks failed to prevent transmission of respiratory viruses.  In May 2020, a Denmark RCT added to the literature showing that surgical masks don't reduce the spread of COVID.  The scientific evidence continues to accrue of mask inefficacy and harm.

Religious Intolerance and COVID Vax Mandates.  In our current age of woke domination and historical ignorance, the words of Joseph Noyes speak to us through the centuries. [...] Yet, 265 years later, in the Age of COVID, we see students and faculty deprived of their jobs and/or education because institutions of higher learning have decided that they are now the modern-day Star Chamber.  It now appears that comparing COVID restrictions to Nazism is quite apropos.  At Penn State, employees who refuse vaccination face re-education and counseling.  Consequently, "non-compliant faculty must meet with an executive ... to discuss their intent to be fully compliant.  Further administrative actions will be discussed ... and will include expectations for progress toward compliance, potential for unpaid administrative leave, and other disciplinary steps up to, and potentially including, termination."  In Maryland, "Loyola Marymount University does offer the religious exemption option for students.  That opportunity, like many universities, came with a deadline for enrollment for the fall semester, according to the university website."

After a big show of force against truckers, Trudeau's regime bruits making its new powers permanent.  It's just this one little sliver of Sudetenland.  It's just ten days to stop the spread.  It's just some street clearing in Canada.  And now we have this from the Trudeau regime, seeking to make its highly questionable power grab against the truckers protesting Canada's vaccine mandates a part of its permanent powers:  [Tweet] [...] Obviously, the Trudeauvians like that feel of power.  They'd like more of it.  Ten days to stop the spread — no, make that ten thousand days.

Senate Republicans fail to block Democrat-led Vaccine Mandates.  If you ask any vaccine skeptics about their objections to the vaccine mandate their answer usually is two-fold.  First, they are concerned about the effectiveness and side effects of the vaccine.  The authorities are frequently redefining the term 'fully-vaccinated' by adding boosters also alarms them.  They are also troubled by government overreach.  They realize that once freedoms and rights are encroached upon by the government, they are seldom fully relinquished completely.  The Biden administration has successfully mandated vaccines for health care workers, military personnel, and non-citizen air travelers, while their attempts to mandate the vaccine for federal government contractors and employees and private sector employees have failed.  There have been proposals to vaccinate children, including those under 5.  State administrations have imposed restrictions on movement, access to public spaces, and public assembly.  There have been instances of police arresting and fining individuals for merely attending a party or being part of religious gatherings.  While other restrictions can be undone over a period of time, the citizen understands that the vaccine once injected into your body will cause permanent changes.  Since the Democrats have been dogmatic about vaccine mandates, the people look towards the Republicans for support.

It's possible to get very rich from manufactured flu and war crises.  [Scroll down]  We've seen prices artificially inflated from the start of Biden's administration when he shut down the pipeline and tightened regulations.  Meanwhile, stories about war keep the price moving up as the big money sells into that constant increase in price.  Putin, the Middle Eastern oil countries, and other big-money people are more than happy to quietly play along again and reap the rewards of higher priced everything.  "Ok, wait, let me make sure I'm reading this correctly.  So, you're suggesting two crises were manufactured.  One, the respiratory flu, to make oil cheap, and, two, the war rumors the last few weeks were manufactured to drive up oil and gas prices to be able to put the cheap oil on the market at a higher price?"  Well, yes, maybe that and, well, I don't know, maybe the flu and war fears are also meant to distract you from stopping your world from being taken over.  The one thing we know for certain is that the last two years have made the world's rich people incredibly richer.  Everything played to their benefit.  Why would that stop now?

Video Shows Justin's Green Shirts Officers Removed Their Identifying Names and Badge Numbers From Their Uniforms.  The Trudeau regime has given up all pretense of free society, as they trample freedoms and human beings in a vicious, Stalin-esque crackdown on free speech.  Not just the speech of protesters but of the press as well.  The Ottawa government and the Canadian government overall are invoking anti-terror powers to physically assault protesters and reporters, and lying online about what they're doing, gaslighting the world as they burn down Canada's veneer of being a free state.  Lines of heavily-armed police in Ottawa dramatically thrust forward Saturday morning [2/19/2022] to gain yet more ground in the operation to smash the truck-protest occupation of the downtown area.

With Possibility of Protests Looming, Joe Biden Extends U.S. COVID-19 National Security Declaration to Retain Additional Power.  Joe Biden informed Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi that he intends to extend the federal National Emergency declaration beyond its termination date in March.  By statute the State of a National Emergency expires one year after initial declaration.  That meant the COVID National Emergency declaration was scheduled to end March 1st.  However, the statute allows the extension if the executive office informs the legislative branch within the 90-day window prior to expiration.  Biden informed Nancy Pelosi today [2/18/2022] of his intent to extend the National Emergency.  Both the House and Senate will now have to schedule a vote to support the extension.

Hundreds of protesters join Quebec City trucker convoy, with more on the way.  Undaunted by the police shutdown of the anti-health-restriction demonstrations in Ottawa, thousands of protesters hopped into their trucks and other vehicles Saturday and rolled into the provincial capital.  For the second weekend this month, trucks, tractors and semis made their appearance on the streets near the National Assembly despite cold weather and a snowstorm.  They were allowed to blow their horns during two blocks of time but not continuously as part of a deal negotiated with police.  Even though one organizer had said they planned to jam up Quebec, they followed the rules, parking their trucks in designated areas.  They are all expected to leave by Sunday evening as happened the last time such a protest took place Feb. 5-6.

Scotland Stops Releasing Death and Hospitalisation Figures by Vax Status, Says Anti-Vaxers Misusing Them.  Scottish health officials will no longer release figures on Covid deaths and hospitalisations by vaccination status as it does now, complaining that anti-vaxers are misusing the data.  Public Health Scotland (PHS), the Scottish equivalent of the UK Health Security Agency (formerly Public Health England) believes that "[t]he case rates, hospitalisation rates, the death rates are very simple statistics" and that anti-vaxers are misreading them "inappropriately and sometimes wilfully".  "What is happening is people are looking at those simple data and trying to make inferences about the vaccination, whether the vaccines work, inappropriately and sometimes wilfully," one technocrat at the Special National Health Service (NHS) Health Board complained to the Scottish press.

The End of COVID-19.  People cannot stay locked down forever; it causes real harm.  Pandemic restrictions have been in place for almost two years now.  It's an understatement to say people are over it.  Everyone wants to protect the most vulnerable among us, but the damage has been adding up.  That damage is not hitting those at the top of our society.  They can fly private to their vacation compounds, sit maskless in box seats at the Super Bowl and ride out the storm while making record profits.  Regular Americans do not have that option.  They're feeling the pain.  That pain is not hypothetical.  Depression, suicide and drug overdoses are all skyrocketing.  The American Psychological Association says America is in a full blown "mental health crisis."  What's just as real but harder to measure is the damage to America's social contract.  Regular Americans have been told to lock down.  They have been told that their children can't go to school or that young, healthy kids must always wear masks.  They have been ordered to take the vaccine.  As all this is happening, they watch billionaires, celebrities and politicians party maskless at Hollywood award shows or in expensive restaurants.  It all adds to the sentiment that the system is not fair.

Federal Appeals Court:  United Airlines Vaccine Mandate 'Coerced' Employees to 'Violate Religious Convictions'.  A federal appeals court on Thursday [2/17/2022] ordered further review of United Airlines' coronavirus vaccine mandate, calling it "coercive" and reversing a lower court ruling.  A three-judge panel in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled 2-1 to return the issue to District Judge Mark Pittman, who previously rejected employees' request for a preliminary junction.  In his opinion, Pittman was sympathetic to employees but said he was bound by court precedent, and he declined the request because employees could not prove "irreparable harm," one of four variables which need to be satisfied in court in order for a judge to issue an injunction and preserve the "status quo" during litigation.  Federal Judges Andy Oldham and Jennifer Elrod reversed Pittman's ruling, pointing to the "rather unique" nature of the case.

Boston abruptly lifts vaccine mandate.  Boston's new mayor, Michelle Wu, took the city by surprise yesterday when she announced that Beantown's requirement for proof of vaccination to enter most indoor businesses was being lifted "immediately."  This was particularly good news for bars and restaurants in the city which have struggled to enforce the mandate and seen their customer traffic (and profits) tanking over the course of the pandemic.  The reason she gave was yet another "following the science" speech, noting that the city's positivity, hospitalization, and ICU occupancy rates had all fallen below the previously defined limits.  Since that means that even the unvaccinated will now be able to go about their lives a bit more normally, Wu really should answer one pressing question.  What about all of the people who wound up getting vaccinated against their will?

More word vomit, more racism, more pork.  California Governor Gavin Newsom announced his new SMARTER plan yesterday.  It purportedly moves our state forward to a COVID policy that acknowledges that the CCP virus is endemic rather than pandemic. [...] SMARTER stands for Shots, as in making more available; Masks, by promising to procure enough N95s for all; Awareness, in terms of having more-state infrastructure (my husband pointed out today that infrastructure replaces pork quite handily); Readiness, which again means throwing lots of money ($1.7 billion) at recruiting, training, hiring, and advancing "an ethnically and culturally inclusive HHS workforce." Then there's Testing, ramped up even more (why?); Education, AKA keeping kids in school (and vaccinated and masked), but also noting that $4.5 billion has been "devoted to improving mental and behavioral health for California's children and youth"; and Rx (treatment), which is again all about equity (distributing treatment resources and the non-specific "continuing evolution" of treatment).

Bill Gates Compares Forced Masking To Wearing Pants.  Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates appeared to compare state-enforced mask mandates to putting on pants while speaking on a discussion panel Friday [2/18/2022].  While speaking on a COVID-19 panel at the Munich Security Conference, Gates referred to the amount of "misinformation" surrounding his role in the handling of the virus to be "wild," before appearing to mock critics of himself, Dr. Anthony Fauci and other public health figures.  "You almost have to laugh about it.  I mean, you know, Dr. Fauci and I are just killing millions of people to make money," Gates quipped.  "You know, hydroxychloroquine's this miracle cure that ... he and I have masterminded, avoiding people saving their lives by taking this thing."

Why are the police we revere doing the tyrants' bidding?  The outrageous mismanagement of COVID as an instrument of population control will go down as the second worst political crime against the American people in U.S. history.  The first is the Hillary Clinton-conceived Russia hoax.  She and her cohorts belong in prison as do Fauci, Collins, Birx, and all those who pushed unsafe, ineffective injections on the millions of people who believed their lies about COVID.  Each of those bureaucrats abused his position of power over the people and has blood on his hands. [...] So how do we explain the fact that in countries around the world, Australia, the U.K., the U.S., France, Belgium, Austria, and Canada, the police, those who were not fired for refusing the vaccine, have taken the opportunity to act like tyranny's handmaidens rather than protectors of the people, their essential charge, the reason they signed up for the job?  In Canada, a few have sided with the truck drivers' cause, but the rest seem to enjoy the opportunity to roust good, law-abiding, non-violent protesters.

Ivermectin Doesn't Help Covid Patients, Study Finds.  Ivermectin, an antiparasitic drug used by former President Donald Trump to treat Covid-19 and promoted by some Republican legislators, does nothing to prevent the disease from progressing, according to a study out of Malaysia published Friday [2/18/2022] by the Journal of the American Medical Association, confirming prior studies suggesting that ivermectin does not effectively prevent or treat the disease.

Funeral Directors and Embalmers Alarmed By Weird, Freakishly Large Blood Clots Clogging Veins in Vaccinated Bodies.  Board-certified funeral directors and embalmers are coming forward to tell tales of horror featuring vaccinated bodies with veins and arteries clogged with strange, rubbery, worm-like clots.  Richard Hirschman, a funeral director and embalmer from Alabama, with over twenty years of experience in the field, has said in recent interviews that he had never seen anything like it until around the middle of 2021, after the mass injections of the experimental COVID vaccines began.  He says his colleagues in the field are seeing the same thing, and the numbers are increasing.  Earlier this month, Hirschman told Steve Kirsch, the Executive Director of the Vaccine Research Center, that in Jan 2022, 37 out of 57 bodies (65 percent) had these suspicious clots.

Canada Goes Tyrannical.  This week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the lightweight, unpopular elected leader of a country with a 93% vaccination rate for those over 60 and a total vaccination rate of 84%, announced that he would invoke the Emergencies Act in order to crack down on the Freedom Convoy — a group of protesters opposed to government vaccination mandates for truckers.  Trudeau breathily announced that invocation of the law was in fact "reasonable and proportionate."  His public safety minister, Marco Mendicino, said that the actions were required thanks to "intimidation, harassment, and expressions of hate."  Why the government would need to invoke emergency powers in order to move some trucks remains beyond understanding; after all, the police had just removed trucks from the Ambassador Bridge, reopening that trade artery with the United States.  Meanwhile, provinces across Canada have already begun alleviating their COVID-19 restrictions, from vaccine passports to masking.

Texas AG Paxton Suing Biden Admin, CDC for Airport Mask Mandates.  Texas continues its push to eliminate mask mandates everywhere and anywhere within state lines.  This time, Attorney General Ken Paxton is going after the Biden Administration for "illegal" mask mandates in airports — it's time to "strike down" these requirements, he says.  According to the Daily Wire, "Paxton filed the lawsuit alongside the Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF) on behalf of Republican Rep. Beth Van Duyne.  The case was filed against the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Director Rochelle Walensky, Chief of Staff Sherri Berger, and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra."

Canada is destroying its banking system.  The problem with becoming a dictator is that madness often quickly follows.  Caligula is an example from the past, for he was genuinely insane and died as a result of that.  Closer to our time, so obsessive was Hitler's effort to exterminate Europe's Jews, he diverted resources from the Russian front, essentially assuring Germany's military defeat.  And in Canada today, we have a ruling party that's equally obsessive, this time in its determination to destroy all political opposition.  To that end, Canada's ruling class is willing to bring down its entire banking system.  Canada's truckers, who are more vaccinated than the average Canadian, nevertheless felt that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had gone too far when he required them to show a vaccine passport to enter their own country. [...] As a reminder, because of his and other Canadian leaders' insane COVID policies — for a virus with an average mortality rate of less than 1% — the entire Canadian economy was blighted, religious worship ended, international travel stopped, and the governments made every effort to coerce Canadian citizens to inject an experimental therapy into their bodies.

CDC quietly lowers early childhood speech standards.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has quietly changed their standards for early childhood development, as the effects of pandemic policies on children's development, from speech to reading to other basics, becomes increasingly more apparent.  Earlier this month, the CDC announced that new checklist ages for its important milestone lists were added.  These new ages added were 15 and 30 months.  The update banner at the top of the page points those interested in the updates to the developmental milestones to a Pediatrics article outlining the research conducted that resulted in the change.

Who's Best Situated to Figure Out the Truth about COVID?  Is COVID truly a threat to life on Earth, comparable to bubonic plague?  Are school closures and lockdowns really necessary?  Will vaccines protect us, and what about side-effects?  If this is a "pandemic of the unvaccinated," how are vaccinated people spreading COVID?  Boosters?  Really?  What is the truth?  Why is COVID so confusing?  First, there are ever-changing messages.  No mask, yes mask, two masks, avoid cloth masks.  Vaccination will stop COVID, except maybe not — we need boosters, several.  There is no natural immunity... well, maybe there is, but it won't protect you.  Except that real physicians say it will.  No wonder people don't trust Fauci or Biden.  Words are critical when seeking truth.  Since the outbreak of COVID, the meaning of common words has been spun and distorted.  Positive COVID tests are reported as "cases," implying symptomatic patients.  The vast majority of positive tests are people not sick at all.

'A new low!' Ottawa police reamed for warning dissenters what will happen to their pets.  Ottawa, Ontario, authorities, who already have warned peaceful, anti-COVID-mandate Freedom Convoy protesters to leave the downtown area or face severe penalties, appear to be threatening to hold the dissidents' dogs hostage and then schedule them for a fast-track adoption.  Or maybe something worse. [...] For supporters of anti-mandate demonstrations, which includes many truckers and others who are fully COVID vaccinated, these developments suggest that authoritarian regimes have vitiated police-community relations in the context of civil liberties during the pandemic era.  Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, and various European cities are unfortunate examples.

Broadway and the prisoners of Mask-aban — this isn't the show we need.  On the outside, it can look as though things are normal-ish.  In reality, we have simply adapted to a set of insane, unsupportable rules which look set to remain in place forever.  While thousands packed into the Super Bowl stadium last Sunday, schoolchildren in California, like New York, continue to do physical exercise outside with masks over their faces.  A New York friend relates that last weekend he watched his double-vaxxed son play soccer outside in a mask.  For the first time, parents were allowed to observe.  Also in masks.  Only to be policed by officials threatening to expel parents should their masks slip below the nose. [...] The COVID enforcers have to go.  Along with all the stupid, pointless, carefully demeaning rules they are making us live under after most of the world has clambered out from them.  What will happen to the mask enforcers when their empire finally does fall?

Lockdown Forever!  W.H.O. Warns Against Return to Pre-Pandemic Normal.  The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) warned Friday [2/18/2022] the global coronavirus pandemic isn't over until it says so, cautioning too many countries are moving too quickly in lifting public health and social restrictions.  The globalist organisation used social media to warn countries that lift restrictions to adopt a slower approach to the pandemic and follow W.H.O. directions, even as global infection rates continue to tumble.  W.H.O. medical authorities Mark Ryan and Maria Van Kerkhove explained the desire to return to normal was ill-advised and may sustain the pandemic, with potentially catastrophic outcomes.

The Church's Role in COVID Recovery.  In the December 22, 2021, Washington Post, an article appeared titled:  "Thousands who followed the rules are about to get Covid.  Despite following all the local and federal protocols, the author believed she engaged in some "wrongdoing" by becoming infected by COVID-19.  Many fellow citizens truly believed that if they followed the government prescribed requirements, they would avoid infection.  The dutiful allegiance to technocrats' edicts is the act of "true believers" and becoming infected is "sin."  Christian Churches need to help us realize that acts which have become irrational, divisive and coercive are signs of a cultish belief in idolized "experts."  Christians are uniquely suited to help others recognize that their behavior is becoming cultish.

Those Responsible Must Pay.  Thanks to science — the science of polling — we are now seeing our useless government coming around to the views that got people like us banned from social media just a few months ago.  Masks are useless, they now concede.  Natural immunity is better than the vaccines that did not work as advertised, they now concede.  What they do not concede is their own culpability.  We must thrust culpability upon them.  Our ruling class knowingly imposed disastrous policies that bore no relation to objective scientific fact upon us, and 900,000 Americans are dead.  Ten of millions more suffered economically and emotionally.  They were driven not by the imperatives of evidence but by the imperative of obedience — that we obeyed was the measure of success, not lives saved.  Dissenting ideas, like ivermectin, were not merely not debated.  The debate was actively stifled.  The dissenting ideas were suppressed as "misinformation" — which really means "unapproved information."  Now a study in Japan, hardly a voodoo backwater, says ivermectin works.  How many people died so that the likes of Fauci and the rest could beat down challenges to their orthodoxy?  And how many kids were broken by the lies about masking and "distance learning?"  They need to pay.  Not just at the ballot box either, though that must happen too.

Look at what we're allowed to talk about now!  I first heard that Vitamin D was a factor in Covid outcomes back in spring 2020.  Nearly a full 2 years ago.  Anyone who mentioned that outside careful whispers was immediately banned from polite and professional society.  The Karens of the world united to let us know that the Narrative had been decided and we needed to be good little subjects and fall in line. [...] Just think:  If governments had pushed fresh air, sunshine, and exercise — instead of those lockdowns that did nothing to reduce deaths but probably accelerated them — how many people would still be here?

The empire of compliance is, at last, falling apart.  [Scroll down]  The proliferation of useless rules, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, has fostered uncertainty, making people unnecessarily cautious in circumstances where once they'd have happily relied on instinct and basic good sense.  It's common to see people enter a restaurant, store, or other public facility wearing masks and then, seeing that others are unmasked, sheepishly take their own off and comment, "Oh, I didn't know what the rule was."  They're not worried about masking as a matter of health.  They're worried about not fitting in, about doing what everyone else does, and about being unmasked as a flouter of government commands. [...] States run by Democrats are scrambling to abandon their mask mandates.  They pretend that this is because the science has changed, but it has not.  Only the opinion polls and proximity to November's elections have.  These blue governments are merely getting a year late to the point at which Republican-run states arrived a year ago.  What is happening is that those who turned the crisis of the pandemic into an excuse to heap a backbreaking load of new impositions on the public realize that they have pushed voters too far.

As a public service:
Joy Behar:  I might wear a mask indefinitely.  She's 79 years old.  Given her risk profile, it wouldn't be the worst idea she's ever had.  Especially since she's had a lot of bad ideas.  The concern here isn't that Behar might mask indefinitely due to her age, which is understandable.  The concern is that she might mask indefinitely due to her politics, which would be indefensible.

A pandemic driven by politics, not science.  As we have been dealing with the COVID-19 virus for more than two years, we are now seeing the beginning of its worldwide decline.  One fact remains clear:  That in spite of the continued exhortation to "follow the science," many in positions of leadership have done nothing of the sort.  They ignored the science and chose to use politics to govern and justify their actions.  From the very beginning, when COVID-19, a disease caused by a virus named SARS-CoV-2, was discovered in December 2019 in Wuhan, China, politicians utilized "science" for political gain. [...] As it appears we may be finally turning the corner on COVID it should come as no surprise that a Johns Hopkins University Study concluded that "lockdowns have done little to reduce COVID deaths but have had devastating effects on economies and numerous social ills."

Project Veritas Drops Explosive FDA Video About Plans for Future on COVID Shots.  The latest release from Project Veritas is sure to get a lot of people riled up.  PV stunned Twitter with a bombshell report on Dr. Anthony Fauci in January, which managed to get their chief of staff banned.  Now, they have some explosive information on the FDA and COVID boosters.  It involves a video of Christopher Cole, who is identified as the FDA Executive Officer of Countermeasures Initiative, who allegedly is directly involved in the approval area.  In the video, Cole says that "Biden wants to inoculate as many people as possible."  "So you'll have to get an annual shot (for the COVID virus)," Cole continues.  "I mean, it hasn't been formally announced yet 'cause they don't want to rile everyone up."  No kidding!  Could it be they don't want to say this before the midterms, and have everyone get disturbed at Biden and the Democrats?  But, this is what he's saying is in the works.

Virginia Judge Strikes Down Loudoun County School Mask Mandate Effective Immediately.  A Loudoun County, Virginia, judge struck down the mask mandate imposed by the Loudoun County School Board (LCSB) Wednesday evening [2/16/0222], immediately allowing students to attend class without masks.  In a lawsuit that saw the administration of Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) join forces with parents against the school district, Loudoun County Circuit Court Judge James P. Fisher decided to grant an emergency injunction in the mandate after weighing arguments from parent plaintiffs' counsel, Attorney General Jason Miyares's (R) office, and LCSB

Two Young Boys Found Dead in Bed after Second Pfizer Shot.  Two teenage American boys have died after receiving the Covid "vaccine," according to an article in the journal Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine.  The children were found dead in bed three and four days after their second Pfizer injections.  The boys were pronounced dead at home and never given a chance to be resuscitated.  One boy complained of headaches and stomach complaints but felt better three days after the injection.  The other boy had no complaints.  According to autopsies that were performed, they didn't have corona, but they did have myocarditis.  The report suggested a hyper-inflammatory cytokine response could have driven the damage.

California Tyrants Self-Identify:  Only The Vaxxed Can Work.  It's not law yet, but there is legislation in California that requires all workers, even independent contractors, to take the coronavirus vaccine. [...] "Long-awaited workplace coronavirus vaccine mandate legislation drops today," Politico reported Last week.  "The sweeping bill from Assembly member Buffy Wicks would apply to all employees and independent contractors, regardless of how big their employer is, and threatens penalties to noncompliant businesses."  Wicks, a Democrat from Oakland, must have missed the truckers in Canada whose fuse was lit by a government vaccine mandate, as well as the Biden White House's failure — thanks to the Supreme Court — to force businesses to require employees to be vaccinated and regularly tested.  But then, she is a lawmaker in California, a one-party state whose "leaders" care little about individual freedom.  She is also a member of the party whose voters "support harsh measures" against the unvaccinated.

Manhattan Judge Tells Wife Of Man Dying With COVID She Won't Grant Emergency Request To Give Him Ivermectin.  A Manhattan judge has ruled that she will not force a hospital to give ivermectin to a dying COVID-19 patient after the man's wife filed a lawsuit against the hospital where he is being held.  Erika Quintero-Sherry has been fighting for Mount Sinai West Hospital to administer ivermectin to her husband, Benjamin Chernyavsky, who has been in critical condition since getting covid last month.

Don't believe what Canadian media tells you about the Freedom Convoy.  Hundreds of thousands of citizens gathered across Canada last week to support the Freedom Convoy that trucked across the country to Ottawa to non-violently protest what have become, for some, the most oppressive and fickle health regulations in the world.  Our Prime Minister denounced them all yesterday as swastika-carrying inciters of violence who promote "hate rhetoric" and are "abusive towards their fellow citizens." [...] The Associated Press in Toronto outright lied, claiming there was "little sympathy in a country where more than 80% are vaccinated."  Most in the crowds were probably vaccinated.  "Three shots & I still can't get a haircut," one man's homemade sign said.  This was about freedom.  And a people sick of moving goalposts.  "Many people were outraged by some of the crude behavior," the AP lied.  But there was no crude behaviour.  It was lying.  Our Prime Minister did this too.

COVID was always about control, it was never about the virus.  Has anyone noticed that the anti-liberty left has lost the plot?  Almost everyone knows that Omicron was the natural vaccine that they didn't have to force down our throats, and yet they act like it never happened.  If it weren't such a dire threat to our freedoms and civil liberties, their destruction and disarray all over the states and the great white North would be incredibly comical.  Especially since these are the same folks who deign to inform the rest of us how we should live.  Those of us on the side of freedom tend to forget that the anti-liberty left could never survive if they were honest and forthright in their intentions.  You could tell they weren't concerned about the threat of COVID when they did the worst thing possible in the middle of a pandemic.  Opening the border to an illegal invasion from around the world was bad enough, made even worse by distributing potential plague carriers throughout the country.

Unaddressed issues corrode America like battery acid.  These days, when it comes to news reports about issues that matter, a lot falls through the cracks. [...] Has anyone ever heard of any good data out there showing whether there has been a significant decrease in fertility/birth rates since the COVID vaccines came into wide use (or the COVID virus started spreading?  I can't think why there necessarily should be but the question irritatingly and ominously keeps surfacing out there.

Biden requests $30 billion more to help fund the COVID response:  White House sets.  President Joe Biden's administration has requested an additional $30 billion more in COVID funding to go toward the pandemic response.  Axios first reported the figure, which was brought up in a call between members of the Department of Health & Human Services and Congressional staff, adding that members of both political parties are skeptical of the amount with surging inflation and a ballooning national deficit.  'HHS's briefing today or this afternoon was a part of our regular conversations with Congress about various resources and needs including what is needed for COVID response,' White House press secretary Jen Psaki said when asked about the $30 billion figure at Tuesday's briefing.  'This is important because while we continue to have sufficient funds to respond to the current Omicron surge in the coming weeks, our goal has always been to ensure that we are well prepared to stay ahead of the virus.'

Covid is over.  It's finished.  No further expenditures can be justified by Covid.  Emergencies can't last forever.

Leftist Nonsense Is Killing Washington DC, And It's Time To Let It Die.  Exactly one month after implementing a mandate requiring proof of vaccination at even private businesses, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that, as of Tuesday, there's no need to show your papers anymore.  By the end of the month, you can ditch the mask, too — unless you're a child hostage in a school or daycare.  It's a remarkable development.  Just four days prior to the announcement, in a hearing before D.C.'s Alcohol Beverage Control Board, the attorney representing the D.C. government affirmed the suspension of Big Board's liquor license because the sports bar refused to require masks and proof of vaccination for service.  Even after Bowser's announcement on Monday, the ABC Board confirmed the bar's license would remain suspended indefinitely.  "The appropriate outcome of this hearing is an indefinite summary suspension," the attorney representing D.C. said at the hearing just days ago.  "Their continued operation places the community at risk and cannot be allowed."  In just one weekend, D.C. absurdly went from persecuting a nondiscriminatory business for being a community "risk," to giving all the rest of the district's establishments the green light to conduct their business the same exact way and stop discriminating based on vaccination status.  But the nonsense cuts even deeper. [...]

FDA executive officer is caught on hidden camera admitting Biden will force an annual Covid shot that would be a 'recurring fountain of revenue' for drug firms.  Project Veritas claims it caught an FDA executive on camera saying Covid boosters would become annual requirements and that the Biden administration has financial incentives for pushing the vaccine.  The far-right activist group released a report Wednesday that includes edited video snippets from at least two secretly-recorded conversations in January and February with Christopher Cole, the FDA's executive officer for its medical countermeasures initiative.  'Biden wants to inoculate as many people as possible,' Cole said during a February 3 conversation inside a restaurant, according to footage obtained by Veritas.  'I think it's going to be a gradual thing.  Schools are going to mandate it.

I wonder if the Daily Mail has ever called anybody a "far-left activist."

CDC Says 10% Of COVID Swabs Sent to Genome Lab, Raising Privacy Questions.  If you took a COVID-19 PCR test, there's a chance your swab may have been sent to scientists around the globe for genomic sequencing analysis, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.  In a tweet, the CDC said five to 10 percent of COVID PCR tests are sent to labs for mapping "genomic sequencing."  Genomic sequencing is a process used to analyze the genetic makeup of viruses.  However, the announcement made by the CDC has sparked human DNA privacy questions.

How Vaccine Mandates Subvert Personal Integrity.  Usually, we live our daily lives not having to make immobilizing decisions that sever aspects of who we are in any fundamental way.  Typically, we wake up, have something to eat, go to work, handle occupational challenges presented to us and eventually allow some leisure time.  But a demand to choose between two or more features that relate to a healthy, fully functioning sense of self is not usually something we come across.  Since the Left is well known for avoiding debate, well-established data, and reasoned argument, it comes as no surprise that the weapon of force is one of its primary tools to supplant the individual sovereignty of free-minded people.  And with the opportunity for extended power that COVID has presented, a number of tyrannical leftists have forced a choice upon workers:  get vaxxed or get axed.  You will either get injected with an untested gene-therapy drug (they call a vaccine), or you're fired!  For the leftist, coercion is the ticket.

Email trail shows how Anthony Fauci and Francis Collins distorted public views on COVID.  In January 2020, the scientific world was startled with the breaking news of a novel coronavirus.  Thanks to a brave Chinese scientist, the DNA sequence of this virus was released to the world.  Upon reviewing this genome, several of the world's top virology experts sent emails to Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health.  These emails suggest that scientific leaders believed the virus possessed features that looked engineered — several even believing there was a more than a 50% chance it had originated in a laboratory.  Then something astonishing happened.  Over the next two months, many of these same scientists, federal grantees, completely reversed their opinion and stated in three separate scientific journal articles that the lab origin theory was impossible.  So, what changed their minds?

What Corporate Media, Health 'Experts' Don't Want You to Know About COVID-19 Mask Mandates.  Masks have become a flashpoint in the global response to COVID-19.  But what the corporate media doesn't want you to know is:  They don't work.  "I think it's one of the most consistent things we can see across locations, is that there's been really no impact from masking," Ian Miller, the author of the new book "Unmasked:  The Global Failure of COVID Mask Mandates," says.  "The data's publicly accessible.  It's all from [the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] or The New York Times or Johns Hopkins [University] or the World Health Organization. ... [People] are getting their information exclusively from either the experts like [Dr.] Anthony Fauci, who have been provably wrong over and over again, or from mainstream media outlets that have just done a really poor job of covering this and presenting the data."

Cancers coming back with a vengeance is very common after the COVID vax.  The DMED database shows the rate of cancer is up by 3X after the COVID vaccines rolled out. [...] In talking with Ryan Cole about this, he believes this is primarily due to accelerating existing cancers (ones people already know they have or recent cancers that people never realized were there) rather than creating new cases of cancer.  [Video clip]

The worst problems with our best judges and doctors.  Last month, Supreme Court justice Sonya Sotomayor was criticized for seriously misstating figures to push Biden vaccine mandates:  100,000 children were seriously ill, with "many on ventilators."  The exaggerated figures underscored an embarrassing setback for the Biden administration.  Corporate media, rightfully, pointed out that Sotomayor's claims were egregious.  Even the Washington Post weighed in, giving the Justice "four Pinocchios" for her false statements.  Only a few weeks prior to the justice's distorted assertion of COVID-19 effects on children, UNC Chapel Hill's Department of Pediatrics published its second dance video.  Masked physicians, one sporting a velour suit coat with multiple necklaces, were filmed dancing to Earth, Wind, & Fire's "September."  The UNC Pediatrics announcement alongside the video read, "[L]ove reveals itself every day as we strive to deliver culturally sensitive care to all we serve in our beautiful State."  The UNC Department of Pediatrics extols Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Illinois Court Halts Mask and Vaccine/Testing Rules for Schools Across the State.  On Friday February 4, the Circuit Court in Sangamon County Illinois issued a state-wide Temporary Restraining Order, halting mask and vaccine-or-testing mandates for students and staff which had been implemented by 170 school districts.  Judge Raylene DeWitte Grischow noted that since the governor declared a COVID-19 emergency in March, 2020, there have been "25 serial disaster proclamations" and 99 executive orders related to COVID-19, touching the lives of every citizen in Illinois.  The folks that filed the lawsuit include parents of kids across the state, as well as teachers.  They are challenging the executive orders from Governor JB Pritzkers and the emergency rules that were set forth by Department of Public Health (DPH) and the state Board of Education implementing the orders.

How COVID Shots Suppress Your Immune System.  In this interview, return guest Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., a senior research scientist at MIT who has been at MIT for over five decades, discusses her latest paper, "Innate Immune Suppression by SARS-CoV-2 mRNA Vaccinations.  The Role of G-quadruplexes, Exosomes and MicroRNAs," co-written with Dr. Peter McCullough, along with two other authors, Dr. Greg Nigh and Dr. Anthony Kyriakopoulos.  Previously, Nigh and Seneff co-wrote an entire paper detailing the differences between the spike protein and the COVID jab spike protein.  In a non-peer-reviewed research paper just this week published on the pre-print service authorea, they and their other co-authors delve deeply into the mechanisms of the COVID shots, showing how they absolutely, in no way, shape or form, are safe or effective.  The shots actually suppress your innate immune system.

Pharma Liability Shields Could Be at Risk if Fraud is Found, says Former Blackrock Investment Executive.  If Pfizer and the FDA do not release the data on their clinical trials, former Blackrock & Hedge Fund Guru Edward Dowd says he is assuming fraud, and Fraud Eviscerates all Contracts, that's case-law.  Dowd says that big pharma is supposed to be one of the most regulated industries, particularly with the Food and drug administration (FDA) however, after touting that the jabs are safe and also effective, their blanket immunity from liability may no longer apply if fraud is found to have occurred.  This could be game over for companies such as Moderna and other mRNA manufacturers, as big insurance is prepping to "square off" with big pharma over life insurance pay-outs linked to the COVID gene therapy jab, according to the Equity Investment Executive Edward Dowd.  Pfizer received blanket immunity from liability through the EUA, however, it is looking like this product is deadly according to Dowd, yet it is others who are being financially burdened.

Argentina: Researchers Explain the Nanotechnology Found in Covid Injections.  In a presentation to the Chilean radio station El Mirador del Gallo, Argentine doctor Martín Monteverde presented the analyses carried out by Corona2Inspect researchers on the microtechnology found in Cansino, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Sinopharm, and Sputnik "vaccines."  In June 2021 graphene was discovered in Covid "vaccines" by Spanish scientist Dr. Pablo Campra.  Since then, graphene and nanotechnology has been found in Covid injections by doctors, scientists and researchers in the United States of America, Poland, Germany, Austria, Chile, Argentina and New Zealand.  Argentina's Dr. Monteverde and other researchers carried out microscopic analyses of vials from the five "vaccine" types.  He then sent these images to Corona2Inspect to further analyse.  Corona2Inspect returned the images with their comments identifying what the objects the images were showing.

Technocrat Vaccinators Have No Intention To Stop Vaccinating.  Many experts have sounded the alarm that the COVID-19 pandemic was all about the shot and a larger agenda to impose totalitarian control worldwide.  Already, one shot has turned into two doses and a third booster.  A fourth booster is also being discussed, including by Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel, who said that the efficacy of the third shot is likely to decline over several months, necessitating another shot soon thereafter.  "I will be surprised when we get that data in the coming weeks that it's holding nicely over time — I would expect that it's not going to hold great," Bancel said in an interview with Goldman Sachs.4 Conveniently, Moderna is working on an Omicron-specific jab that they hope to release as early as March 20225 — and this is only the beginning.

Canadian Truckers unite against Marxist state policy.  In Canada, one of the biggest revolutions is happening, and it's still not finished, but shame on the media for not covering it to call attention to it.  The event should be a headline story when there were up to 50,000 truckers and 1.4 [million] people headed to the parliament in Ottawa, vowing to stay there until Trudeau resigns, or they give us back all of our freedoms and rights."  At a Trump rally in Texas on Saturday, January 29, 2022, Trump praised the Canadian Truckers and called on Congress to rehire every soldier or Marine fired by Joe Biden over vaccine mandates.  The nationwide movement was launched in protest of a federal vaccine mandate that came into effect January 15, requiring all commercial truck drivers crossing into Canada to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.  The federal vaccine mandate for truckers has already caused significant supply chain chaos, with delays and shortages affecting many regions across the country.

Nearly 35,000 Reports of COVID Vaccine Injuries Among 5- to 17-Year-Olds, CDC Data Show.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released new data showing a total of 1,071,856 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and Jan. 21, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).  VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.  The data included a total of 22,607 reports of deaths — an increase of 414 over the previous week — and 178,994 reports of serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 4,130 compared with the previous week.  Excluding "foreign reports" to VAERS, 740,000 adverse events, including 10,316 deaths and 67,496 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and Jan. 21, 2022.

The Nefarious Goal Behind Covid Testing.  Everything about this pandemic was carefully planned and anyone who doesn't see it either hasn't bothered researching it properly (and doesn't care) or knows full well what's going on (and doesn't care or is a part of it). [...] A recent article in the Washington Free Beacon said that "in announcing the contract with iHealth and two other companies, the Department of Defense said the administration will purchase almost 400 million kits in a deal that totaled nearly $2 billion.  Rep. Don Bacon (R., Neb.) called the arrangement with a Chinese manufacturer "ridiculous" given China has "not been transparent one iota on what happened at Wuhan."  Prior to the Pentagon contract, the FDA in December approved iHealth's request to manufacture at-home COVID-19 tests for Americans."  Imagine the irony of the United States Department of Defense ordering these testing kits from China.  I mean, it just boggles the mind.  Always siding with China, Anthony Fauci said in December that we simply had to purchase these testing kits from China because American manufacturers were already "going full speed," but somehow, we are just inadequate in our production abilities. [...] Adding insult to injury, not only are we subjecting ourselves and our children to the humiliating process of taking these tests, but we are buying this snake oil from the country that got us into this mess in the first place.

COVID-19 Death Data from States Called into Question.  Questions about the reliability of COVID-19 death counts, case numbers, and test results raised throughout the pandemic remain unanswered, leading to inflated mortality statistics, say officials and researchers.  Colorado health officials changed procedures for cause of death determinations during the pandemic, leading to inaccurate COVID case and mortality numbers, says Sen. Scott Jensen (R-Chaska).  "When the Department of Health (and Human Services) and the CDC decided to change the rules that had been in place for 17 years by encouraging the diagnosis of COVID-19 in situations that we never would have otherwise, they were abandoning their long-held commitment to precisely identifying the inciting or the initiating event that would lead to a sequence of events that would lead to a person's demise," Jensen told Fox News on January 2, 2021.

38,983 Deaths and 3,530,362 Injuries Following COVID Shots in European Database.  The European (EEA and non-EEA countries) database of suspected drug reaction reports is EudraVigilance, verified by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and they are now reporting 38,983 fatalities, and 3,530,362 injuries following injections of four experimental COVID-19 shots:
  •   COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE MODERNA (CX-024414)
  •   COVID-19 MRNA VACCINE PFIZER-BIONTECH
  •   COVID-19 VACCINE ASTRAZENECA (CHADOX1 NCOV-19)
  •   COVID-19 VACCINE JANSSEN (AD26.COV2.S)
From the total of injuries recorded, almost half of them (1,672,872 ) are serious injuries.

Sweden joins others in announcing end of virus restrictions.  Sweden on Thursday joined other European nations in saying it will remove coronavirus restrictions.  "It is time to open Sweden again," said Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson, announcing the restrictions would be removed [beginning on] Feb. 9.

12 Countries Roll Back COVID Restrictions, Israel Scraps 'Green Pass'.  Europe is accelerating steps to roll back COVID restrictions as efforts to control the spread of the virus have failed and countries downgrade the threat posed by SARS-CoV-2.  Sweden and Switzerland joined Denmark, Norway, Finland, Ireland, The Netherlands, Italy, Lithuania, France and the UK in announcing they will lift COVID restrictions and open up their countries.  Top Israeli officials also announced this week they are abolishing the country's "Green Pass" COVID vaccine passport for restaurants, hotels, gyms and theaters.  The policy update will take effect Feb. 6, Prime Minister Naftali Bennet's government said, pending approval by a parliamentary committee.  Israel's proof-of-vaccination policy will remain in effect for events such as parties or weddings.

DHS: Here is a list of top COVID misinformation spreaders you should investigate ASAP.  DHS is getting tough on COVID misinformation spreaders, i.e., people who spread information that "undermines public trust in government institutions." Since DHS has finite resources to pursue all these perpetrators, as a public service, I have created a list of what I believe are some of the country's top misinformation spreaders.  I sincerely hope that the DHS will focus their efforts on these individuals since they have made statements and/or taken actions (or refused to take action) that result in the undermining of public trust in US government institutions.  It is extremely easy to tell who is telling the truth here: it's the people who are not afraid of debate.  The one thing everyone on our list has in common is that they will never agree to debate anyone with opposing views.  These people need to be stopped now and I'm grateful that DHS is finally taking this seriously as innocent lives are being lost.

Does watching the news actually make us stupider?  It's hard to think logically about COVID if you don't know the actual risks.  I had a parent who was happy that her (healthy, minimal COVID-risk) kid was out of school as she felt COVID could kill him.  When I asked what he was doing with the extra time off, she replied that he was spending more time riding his ATV.  Over 50 kids die per year in Canada on ATV's — most of them previously well — whereas only 27 have died of COVID since the beginning of the pandemic — about 13 per year — most of them with significant pre-existing conditions.

The Most Comprehensive List of U.S Lawsuits on COVID Vaccines, Mandates and Treatments.  Hundreds of lawsuits have been filed since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic over vaccines, mandates, lack of access to inexpensive and effective treatments, natural immunity, informed consent and more.  These challenges have been brought in both state and federal courts by attorney generals, individuals and entities seeking to preserve the liberties and individual freedoms of Americans.

Revenge of the Covid Moms.  Maud Maron hates the whole you-gotta-show-your-vaccine-passport-to-get-into-a-restaurant thing, and she thinks masking indoors is atrocious, but this is bright blue New York City, so fine.  It's just, "when Kathy Hochul" — the governor — "gets on the screen, talking about how she wants to protect us and keep the masks in schools, she doesn't have a [...] mask on her face, and I'm so sick of politicians who take the mask off their face to tell me to put the mask on my children — like how dare you?"  Anyway, that's why she's running for Congress.

New Zealand's Euthanasia Bill for "Severely Hospitalized" Covid Patients.  Could the following headline possibly be true?  New Zealand's Ministry of Health (MOH) has confirmed that COVID-19 patients may be eligible for assisted suicide[.]  If so, it is something Americans have not heard about in the media from the down under country of New Zealand.  Most Americans would cringe if privy to such a headline, yet it is true. [...] Additionally, the government will pay about $1087 to doctors for each patient they euthanize, according to Stuff, the island nation's most popular newspaper.

Fauci's gain-of-function conspiracy and why I'll continue to hold him, his allies accountable.  In January, I asked Dr. Anthony Fauci a pretty basic question:  "Do you really think it's appropriate to use your $420,000 salary to attack scientists that you disagree with?"  Given Dr. Fauci's theatrical outburst and deflection in response to my question, I think I hit a nerve.  Answering that question truthfully, which he is legally compelled to do when speaking before Congress, would have meant illuminating the deceitful game he and National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins have been playing about COVID's origins and their support of the type of dangerous research that could have led to the pandemic.

Gov. Newsom announces no change to school masking policy because unions said no.  Last Wednesday, Gov. Gavin Newsom said changes to the state's school mask mandate would be coming soon.  The state's indoor mask mandate for the vaccinated ends Tuesday and the expectation reported at several news sites was that a change to the school policy would be announced today.  But today [2/14/2022] came and instead of announcing a change, Newsome sent California's HHS Secretary out to issue a two week delay: [...] So why the change?  There's really no doubt about that.  California's teacher's unions demanded more time and as always they got what they wanted.

Germany's plan for [a] vaccination mandate [is] losing momentum.  Germany's plans to introduce a general vaccination mandate this spring are faltering, as a growing number of politicians question if it will find a majority in parliament.  The Bundestag was originally due to debate motions in favour and against mandatory vaccinations this week, after the chancellor, Olaf Scholz, indicated he considered such a step necessary to cope with a possible resurgence of the virus in the next few months.  But the timetable that was meant to see a mandate passed in March has already begun to slip, as a Free Democratic party (FDP) politician said his third-way motion proposing mandatory vaccinations for those aged 50 and over would be submitted with a delay.

Enjoy This Supercut of Maskless Celebrities Violating SoFi Stadium's Mandate.  Celebrities rolled out for Super Bowl 56 at LA's SoFi stadium — but not many of them felt it was important to adhere to the venue's mask policy.  Sure, they'll turn around and support masking your children — the lowest risk group of all — but they'd rather not wear an unsightly mask.  Enjoy this supercut, posted by radio host Clay Travis, of celebs' smiling, hypocritical faces.  "Here's the video of every celebrity without a mask during the Super Bowl.  But every kid in California will have to be wearing them tomorrow in school.  They must all be holding their breaths the entire game," Travis tweeted with the video.

NYC fires more than 1,000 workers over vaccine mandate.  New York City fired more than a thousand workers who failed to comply with the city's COVID-19 vaccine mandate, the mayor's office said Monday [2/14/2022].  The 1,430 workers who lost their jobs represent less than 1% of the 370,000-person city workforce and are far fewer terminations than expected before a Friday deadline to get the shots.  The city sent notices in late January to up to 4,000 workers, saying they had to show proof they got at least two doses of the vaccine or else they'd lose their jobs.

NYC Mayor fires more than 1,400 unvaxxed workers.  In New York City, the deadline for city workers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID has come and gone.  Those who failed to comply were previously informed that if they continued in their refusals, they would face disciplinary action up to and including the termination of their employment.  According to records that the city released yesterday, they weren't kidding.  The new Mayor of Gotham authorized the dismissal of more than 1,400 workers.  The newly unemployed include both first responders and public school teachers and staff members.  And depending on the outcome of a review of exemption requests, the number could climb much, much higher.

FDA Slows Approval Of Affordable Cancer Drug In The Name Of Racial 'Equity'.  An effective and more affordable treatment for lung cancer may not gain approval after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) complained about the lack of black people in its clinical trial, with a top FDA cancer official repeatedly noting in a meeting that it is Black History Month.  Eli Lilly and a Chinese partner called Innovent believe the drug, known as Tyvyt or sintilimab, could extend the lives of those suffering with late-stage non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and be more affordable than other treatments.  The clinical trial patients were Asian because the trial was conducted in China.

Two high schools sudden deaths on the same day.  Two healthy high school basketball players died suddenly on the same day.  Cameran Wheatley, a 17-year-old senior at Bremen High School, collapsed during a game with Chicago High School on February 8, 2022.  Meanwhile, in East Texas, Devonte Mumphrey collapsed on the same day and died from a sudden cardiac arrest.  Devonte, 15, was a basketball standout who was nominated for Mr. Texas Basketball Player of the Week after scoring 45 points in a single game in January.

Ottawa police chief resigns amid anti-mandate protests.  Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly has resigned after weeks of criticism for his handling of anti-vaccine mandate protests that have paralysed the city.  Protesters have occupied the downtown core of Canada's capital for 19 days, halting traffic and enraging residents.  Prime Minister Justin Trudeau yesterday invoked the Emergencies Act as a "last resort" in response to the protests.  The Ottawa Police Services Board confirmed Mr Sloly's resignation at a public meeting on Tuesday.

Reports: Ottawa Police Chief Resigns After Weeks of Freedom Convoy Protests.  Ottawa police chief Peter Sloly resigned from his position Tuesday, multiple reports confirmed, after weeks of continued protests against Wuhan coronavirus restrictions by Freedom Convoy truckers, a day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked emergency powers.  Sloly, criticised by many opposed to the Freedom Convoy protests over his handling of the situation in downtown Ottawa, resigned Tuesday after alleged conflicts with colleagues in the Ottawa Police Service as well as conflicts with members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).

Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly Resigns, City Councillor Says.  Ottawa police chief Peter Sloly abruptly resigned on Feb. 15 amid large-scale protests in the city against federal COVID-19 mandates.  Sloly issued a statement on social media confirming his resignation. [...] The protests were initiated by truck drivers opposed to COVID-19 vaccination mandates for cross-border travel.  As convoys of truckers made their way to Ottawa many supporters joined the movement, which turned into a large-scale protest against all COVID-19 mandates and restrictions.  With the protests now entering the third week, many of the demonstrators say they intend to stay until COVID-19 mandates are lifted.  The city of Ottawa, province of Ontario, and the federal government have declared states of emergency over the protests.

NYC Middle School Teachers Force Kids to Perform a Pro-Vaccine Song that Looks like it was Sponsored by Big Pharma.  Another day, another video showing children being used to push leftist school teachers agenda.  Proving once again these leftists are doing everything they can to brainwash the youth into believing them.  Ironically, these are the same individuals who constantly yap about how lobbyists are destroying America, how corporations shouldn't be involved in politics, etc.  Yet here they are forcing children to carry signs with big pharma's names on it.  Our teachers unions are nothing more than Democrat controlled propaganda organizations at this point.  [Video clip]

Apparently the virus is dangerous today, but it won't be in two weeks.
Ontario to Lift Vaccine Passport and All Capacity Limits March 1.  Ontario is easing some of its COVID-19 restrictions on Feb. 17, and will be lifting all capacity limits and proof of COVID-19 vaccination requirements on March 1, Premier Doug Ford said on Feb. 14.  Ford said based on recommendations by the province's chief medical officer of health, his government will remove capacity limits in indoor and outdoor settings in two stages.  "Key indicators have steadily improved at the peak of Omicron wave," Ford said at a press conference.  "Because of this progress, we heard from our chief medical officer of health Dr. Moore two weeks ago, and again last week, that we were fast approaching a time when we could safely remove restrictions."  Effective Feb. 17, capacity limits will be removed for restaurants, bars, and gyms.  Gathering limits will be at 50 percent for sports arenas, theatres, and concert venues.  And areas deemed "higher-risk settings," such as dance clubs, will have their capacity limits raised to 25 percent.

California is blackmailing students into vaccination.  For inscrutable reasons, California's children, the least likely to spread COVID or be seriously sickened by it, must still wear their masks.  This new mask policy will take place today (February 15, 2022).  There is no discernible reason for choosing this particular date.  There is no new science that favors ending mask mandates, but then there was never any real science that favored mask mandates in the first place.  Since the decision to force Californians to cover their faces was completely arbitrary, it seems fitting that a decision to free Californians from masks should also be completely arbitrary.  Were it not for the concomitant decision to keep children in masks while they attend school, most people would probably just breathe a sigh of relief with well deserved fresh air and get on with their lives.  Sadly, the state government has chosen to continue to muzzle children, in the most literal sense.  It was all right for Super Bowl fans to crowd into a stadium by the thousands without masks.  Nobody seemed to be concerned that the game was the ultimate super-spreader event.

No Government Can Make as Many Mistakes and Errors About COVID as Ours Did, It Requires Intent.  [Scroll down]  The hallmark of the so-called public health information associated with COVID, going back to the earliest days of the "pandemic," professed a certainty with which we were all obliged to go along on pain of public ridicule.  For instance, look at the early models for disease spread.  These models, now proven to be so wildly inaccurate that they don't merit the term "guesses" much less that of "models."  Note that the purveyors of those "models" have suffered no professional or financial or penal [...] consequences, their models are still quoted, and we are still supposed to take them seriously.  A quick look back and we soon have an extensive list of things that were fed to us as "facts" and have since been proven wrong.  For instance:  Masks.  We've been told to wear a mask, don't wear a mask, wear two masks, wear masks when walking through restaurants but not when sitting.

Newton, the Third Law of Motion, and Canadian Truckers.  Governments in Canada, New Zealand, and Australia have been three of the worst offenders when it comes to attacking citizens' basic liberties.  To be sure, while most countries in the world have experienced varied degrees of restrictions, Canada has created one of the more potent cocktails of lockdowns, mask requirements, social distancing requirements, vaccine mandates, vaccine passport mandates, travel restrictions, contact tracing, quarantining, surveillance and policing.  Canada, notoriously has become one of the first to take steps towards building COVID camps.  The Canadian government announced last summer that it was funding the construction of four "isolation sites" where "people who have COVID-19 — or have been exposed to it — access safe isolation accommodations to keep themselves and their community safe."  Translation:  The government is building camps where people who test positive can be coerced into "voluntarily" leaving their own homes and placed in sites under lock-and-key until they check after being deemed by the government no longer a threat to public health and safety.

Joe Biden, Alchemist?  [Scroll down]  After attempting for political purposes during the 2020 campaign to question the efficacy and safety of the Trump Operation Warp Speed vaccinations, Biden and Harris upon inauguration claimed them as their own.  They continued their earlier misinformation that the former president was responsible for 100 percent of COVID deaths during his presidency.  And they did so because they were assured that the now plagiarized vaccination programs (Biden and Harris were both vaccinated shortly after being elected) would simply end the pandemic.  Biden being Biden, he then foolishly boasted that he would not so much end the lockdowns, as end the virus itself.  On Biden's watch, Omicron infected the thrice-vaxxed.  Its infectiousness hit even the masked and locked down.  Those with naturally acquired immunity had as good, if not better, immunity than the vaxxed.  In other words, much of the Fauci "follow the science" orthodoxy was revealed as irrelevant if not simply anti-science.  With the midterms on the horizon, and millions of American asking why their children were still unschooled, why those outdoors were still wearing masks, why public officials who railed the most about the need for masks were caught unmasked, and why the federal government was still firing soldiers and federal workers with naturally acquired immunity, Biden began to furiously alchemize again.  Now his party abruptly announces, "We will live with COVID rather than live-in fear of it."  Masks are now becoming passé.  Lockdowns, if not already ignored, are easing.  Biden is announcing victory.  Joe beat the now-waning Omicron.

The CDC Data Nobody Is Talking About Raises Urgent Questions for Bureaucrats.  Some of us are old enough to remember when Dr. Anthony Fauci told the nation that "herd immunity" may require 90% of Americans to receive COVID-19 vaccinations.  First, that is a complete revision of the meaning of herd immunity since it is not a static concept.  Second, while it may have been a legitimate goal to achieve near-zero COVID-19, all it meant was that 90% of the population needed to have an effective immune response to COVID-19.  To date, Fauci, the CDC, and the rest of the health agency bureaucrats have defined this response as having detectable circulating antibodies.  If that is the case, why is no one talking about two seroprevalence studies on the CDC website?  At a minimum, they raise questions about the public health response, the current pandemic statistics, and the immune response individuals have to a COVID infection after receiving the vaccines.  The two studies measure detectable antibodies in the population nationwide.

Levi's brand president Jennifer Sey gets fired for speaking out against COVID measures for kids:  Refused $1 million to 'stay quiet'.  Jennifer Sey, former USA gymnast and the brand president of Levi's has revealed she has been fired for repeatedly speaking out against draconian COVID restrictions in schools, and turned down $1 million in severance pay that she was offered on the condition she wouldn't publicly share why she had been ousted.  Sey, 52, has repeatedly spoken out against school shut-downs and
