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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Some Scientific Observations about the Medical Establishment's Handling of COVID-19 to Date.  [#1]  Although our primary defense against almost any disease is our immune system, there has been almost no public education or emphasis about this by the Medical Establishment. [...] [#2] The general COVID-19 rules and recommendations from the Medical Establishment have been illogical, inconsistent and/or harmful. [...] [#3] COVID-19 data from (or supported by) the Medical Establishment, have been incomplete to purposefully deceptive.  [This includes data about COVID-19 injections.] [...] [#4] Inexplicably, to date the Medical Establishment has yet to support some well-documented effective COVID-19 therapies.

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.

Timely news and commentary:

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

U.K. Government spied on citizens over Covid views.  Since his first COVID related video simply titled, "Coronavirus" on January 26, 2020, [Dr. John] Campbell has produced nearly daily videos covering every aspect of the virus and the pandemic.  For three years, subscribers have watched Campbell interpret every piece of scientific data that's been released concerning both the virus and the jabs.  Methodically showing viewers news highlights fresh from his printer, and accentuating text with his fountain pen, his rational calmness and "concerned father" demeanor have established him as a trusted and steady source of valuable information.  Lately, he's questioned the safety and efficacy of COVID "vaccines" with video's such as, "Immunology of mRNA vaccines" and "Excess deaths in all age groups."  He's crafted his words carefully so as not to alarm YouTube censors.  Monday night, he began his latest video by saying he wasn't sure if he was going to post it or not.  These are heavy words from the laid-back Campbell.  Nervously scratching his head, he continued to tell his viewers that, "it turns out there's been a covert military operation observing UK citizens during the pandemic."

Your Taxes Paid Thousands Of Government Staff Covid Unemployment While They Worked From Home.  While millions of jobless Americans struggled to make ends meet during devastating government-mandated lockdowns, thousands of federal employees double-dipped from taxpayer-funded pandemic unemployment funds while mostly working from home.  Despite staying on taxpayers' payroll during the height of the pandemic panic, greedy bureaucrats in the Internal Revenue Service, Transportation Security Administration, Federal Emergency Management Agency, United States Postal Service, Amtrak, and the Secret Service defrauded taxpayers out of millions more dollars under the guise of Covid unemployment fund and wage assistance programs.

FAA Press Office responds: There will be no investigations into pilot death/disability caused by the COVID vaccines.  The FAA is not investigating any pilot injury, disability, or deaths if it is associated with the COVID vaccines.  They know about the incidents, but there is no investigation.  When contacted, they have no comment as to why there are not investigating these incidents.  The official story is "we haven't seen a problem" but they haven't seen a problem because they refuse to look.  The corruption is at the highest levels, e.g., Federal Air Surgeon Susan Northrup and FAA Deputy Administrator Bradley Mims.  I've spoken to both of them directly.  They are doing nothing to fix any of the problems I've identified and aren't interested in talking to the injured pilots.

Slandered and Bullied: Vaccine Injured Mom Fights Back.  Last week, Angelia Desselle, a former manager of a surgery center outside of New Orleans Louisiana, responded to a tweet by Elon Musk who complained of an adverse reaction to his second booster shot.  Desselle, who also suffered a severe adverse reaction to the Covid shot, responded to Elon's tweet, attaching video footage of her inside Ochsner Hospital.  She was in the midst of having an alarming neurological event after being admitted to Ochsner on January 5, 2021, just days after receiving the Pfizer vaccine.

The Case against Trump 2024.  [#1] COVID.  For 30 months as president, Trump successfully implemented standard conservative policies, which were successful, as all of us knew they would be.  Even liberals know that conservative policies work.  They just have a counterproductive agenda.  COVID provided a novel challenge requiring adaptation.  Trump fell for the Fauci-Birx agenda.  Two weeks to slow the curve became a forever nightmare on Trump's watch.  As disagreements mounted, Trump left Fauci and Birx in place.  They continued to spread the "shut down" mantra.  Trump started a runaway train and didn't stop it.

S. Carolina Doctor Admits on Hidden Cam the Moderna Jab is Hurting People, Possibly Hiding it from FDA.  She sounded a lot like an apologist, probably doesn't want to admit to herself how many people she could have potentially injured with the death jab she was more than likely getting money for administering.  [Video clip]

$60 Billion In COVID Fraud?  Try $4 Trillion.  As auditors and congressional investigators try to figure out just how much federal COVID relief went to fraudsters, they are missing the trillions of dollars in fraud committed by the federal government itself in a war that we had no chance of winning.  Last week, the Government Accountability Office reported that fraudsters took in about $60 billion in unemployment checks.  That's on top of the tens of billions in fraudulent claims made through the Paycheck Protection Program, the tens of billions handed out through a Small Business Administration program, and on and on.  This Wednesday, the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability will hold a hearing "to investigate rampant waste of taxpayer dollars in COVID relief programs."

President Biden to end COVID-19 emergencies on May 11.  President Joe Biden informed Congress on Monday that he will end the twin national emergencies for addressing COVID-19 on May 11, as most of the world has returned closer to normalcy nearly three years after they were first declared.  The move to end the national emergency and public health emergency declarations would formally restructure the federal coronavirus response to treat the virus as an endemic threat to public health that can be managed through agencies' normal authorities.

The Editor says...
Aha!  The Associated Press, in the article above, says, "most of the world has returned closer to normalcy."  That is an admission, at long last, that the continuous Covid emergency is not "the new normal."

Understanding the Limitations of Computer Modeling.  Everyone in the United States has now become painfully aware of how computer models can impact their lives.  We can no longer ignore their existence.  Every citizen needs to have a rudimentary understanding, not of modeling itself — but of when it can be trusted and when it cannot.  There is a fundamental question of knowing the future.  In 2007, The Black Swan explored the bounds of our knowledge in a world of uncertainty and introduced the "ludic fallacy" — using the past to predict the future.  This paper puts some of the concepts from that book into the context of computer modeling.  The response to the Covid-19 pandemic response has largely been based upon the published predictions from models like the ones constructed by the Imperial College and the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME).  Had these models not produced the fear they did, the impact of the pandemic would have been reduced significantly.

Pfizer Issues a Doublespeak Non-Denial Denial of Directed Evolution.  We covered the Project Veritas story of the Pfizer executive, Jordan Trishton Walker and posted the video of a drunk Walker telling his prostitute date that Pfizer is considering using directed evolution, mutating the COVID virus to develop future vaccines.  Pfizer has finally issued a statement of denial that doesn't deny anything Mr. Walker said.  Dr. Robert Malone said that what the Project Veritas video shows is Pfizer's vaccines failed.  The vaccine cannot keep up with the variants.  That has always been the problem with finding a vaccine for viruses since they mutate too quickly.  Dr. Malone was also concerned about the revolving door between Pfizer and the government that Walker mentioned.  Dr. Malone said it suggests that Pfizer has full regulatory capture, perhaps worldwide.

Pfizer execs tip their hand.  The CEO of Pfizer is on record as saying that "a dream" that he and his WEF-loving peers had, back in January of 2019, was to "reduce the number of people in the world by 50%."  By 2023.  He seems nice.  I would, however, ask the question, "Which 50% of the world's people should have been dispensed with by now?"  I mean, who gets to decide which one of every two — or five of every ten — people we see are expendable?  Klaus Schwab?  Adam Schiff?  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?  Ilhan Omar?  Keith Olbermann?  Eric Swalwell?  Maxine Waters?  RuPaul?  Greta Thunberg?  On top of this, Pfizer executive Jordan Tristan Walker was recently caught on film stating that his company is considering deliberately mutating the COVID virus in order to pre-emptively develop a vaccine to fight future strains... and, coincidently, to continue to make unprecedented profits doing so.

A Checklist for House Select Subcommittee on COVID-19 Pandemic to Hold Government Accountable.  The House of Representatives in the new 118th Congress is off to a good start.  In adopting a set of innovative rules governing its parliamentary deliberations, the new House Republican majority has authorized the creation of a Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic with broad jurisdiction.  After three years, and more than 1 million deaths in the U.S. associated with COVID-19, a comprehensive, sober, and detailed investigation into the federal government's response is a necessary precondition for restoring Americans' trust in federal public health agencies.  Specifically, that includes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Office of the Secretary at the Department of Health and Human Services.

Are the COVID Yarns Slowly Beginning to Unravel?  Start with the origin of the Chinese coronavirus, initially said to have definitively originated in a Wuhan market due to a chance encounter of a bat with a pangolin.  The latter supposedly ended up on someone's dinner table, the virus making a miraculous leap from bat to pangolin to human in record time with no intermediate hosts or time to mutate.  In fact, the virus was likely man-made, manufactured via gain of function research which Dr Anthony Fauci adamantly denied.  Such research is illegal in the US but not elsewhere in the world. "The Pentagon reportedly controls bioweapons labs in some 25 different countries including Ukraine."  What are they doing in those labs?  Will the Republican-controlled Congress ask[?]  Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland told a Senate committee, "Ukraine has biological research facilities."  Could have that been a factor in Putin's Ukraine invasion?  The media and Congress are incurious.

Secret Decoder, Pfizer Legal Document.  [No excerpt provided here — just read it yourself.]

FDA quietly changes end date of heart inflammation study.  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has changed the end date for a key study on post-vaccination heart inflammation without notifying the public.  Pfizer was supposed to complete a study on the occurrence of subclinical myocarditis, or heart inflammation, after receipt of its COVID-19 vaccine.  The completion date was listed by the FDA in 2021 as June 20, 2022.  Pfizer was also supposed to submit the results of the study to the FDA by the end of 2022 as part of a list of requirements the FDA imposed as a condition of approving Pfizer's jab.  But after the deadline passed, the FDA quietly changed the date.  Under a list of postmarketing requirements for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, the FDA now says the same study has an "original projected completion date" of June 30, 2023.  The current status of the study is listed as "pending."

Judge blocks California's covid misinformation law.  On January 25, the case of Hoeg v. Newsom prompted a federal judge to pause California's covid misinformation and disinformation law for violating the First and 14th Amendments to the Constitution.  Five doctors who are plaintiffs in the case say Assembly Bill 2098 violates their constitutional rights.  These include Drs.  Tracy Hoeg, Ram Duriseti, Aaron Kheriaty, Pete Mazolewski, and Azadeh Khatibi.  Gov. Gavin Newsom and other elected officials, including the president and members of the Medical Board of California, are named as defendants in the case (and there is also a second lawsuit, separate but related in nature, called Hoang v. Bonta that makes similar allegations).  AB 2098 puts a muzzle on California doctors, preventing them from providing information to their patients that the state deems to be "misinformation" or "disinformation."  Doctors who advise and treat their patients based on science rather than lies face the potential loss of their medical license under AB 2098.

A Country With a Most Peculiar COVID-19 Death Rate (Part I).  This series of articles will discuss the underreported COVID-19 deaths in China and provide an estimate of the total amount of deaths there from 2020-2022.  The Chinese regime's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has been criticized for its lack of transparency.  As the virus spread globally, more questions about China's COVID-19 data have been raised, yet there still is no clear answer.  Again and again, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has tried to cover up its lies, but lies can't stand the test of time, and after three years, the deception has come to light.  Internationally renowned demographer Yi Fuxian estimated China's population in 2020 to be 1.28 billion, significantly lower than the 1.41 billion figure officially reported by the CCP's census data.  This discrepancy in numbers has caught the attention of numerous professionals, organizations, and individuals who have conducted their investigations into the CCP's data on the current state of the population.  The findings of these independent studies have revealed that the official estimates provided by the CCP may be vastly overestimating the actual population numbers.

Victims of Chinese COVID Vaccine Injuries Demand Fair Investigation, Compensation.  A group of rights defenders representing victims of Chinese-made COVID-19 vaccines protested in Beijing last month to appeal for fair medical investigation and adequate compensation.  The rights group went to the top health agency, the National Health Commission, on Dec. 1, 2022, bringing a list of 1,290 individuals who were allegedly diagnosed with leukemia after getting a COVID vaccine.  More people joined them on Dec. 2, filing their complaints with the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the top disciplinary body.  Obtaining medical compensation is difficult in China as there is a lack of independent medical investigations, which are usually done by experts chosen by the Chinese regime.

Powerful As It Is, Google Couldn't Hide Pfizer's Dirty Dealings.  ven with billions of dollars at its disposal, and the full backing of the two most corrupt governments on the planet, the U.S. Deep State and the European Union (EU), Internet bully Google missed the boat in removing the Project Veritas video exposing to a watching world Pfizer's exploration of Covid virus mutation for the purpose of developing future vaccines. [...] Google just doesn't get it that it's impossible to unsee what's already been seen.  Important to note that even conservative news outlets are reporting that "YouTube" removed the Project Veritas video.  YouTube is owned by Google.  YouTube IS Google.

Rising Female Soccer Star Dies Suddenly at 14.  Tributes have poured in from around the world following the unexpected death of Spanish under-15s star Estrella Martin.  Sporting Club de Huelva, from Andalusia, announced the death of the academy youngster.  Martin died suddenly in her hometown of Ayamonte, in southern Spain, on Wednesday, according to the club.

The Pfizer Exec Story is No Hoax.  In my circles of sceptics, some have expressed doubts that the Project Veritas video of the Pfizer exec detailing the company's plans for mutating the coronavirus for profit, and describing how regulators are bribed with well paying jobs, is real.  It's been suggested this may be a set-up, even that it was deliberately planned by Pfizer to mislead sceptics.  I highly doubt this.  Google now posts a warning when I search for the story.  This is a common reaction when something inconvenient for the authorities goes viral.

UK military spied on lockdown critics — media.  The UK Ministry of Defence has been closely monitoring the social media accounts of public figures critical of the government's Covid-19 policies since the start of the pandemic, a whistleblower told the Daily Mail newspaper on Saturday.  The claim counters repeated official denials that the government is carrying out any such surveillance.  The military's secretive 77th Brigade compiled dossiers on anyone with a sizable following who questioned the lockdowns, mandates, and predictions of doom that characterized London's response to the novel coronavirus outbreak, according to the source, who worked for the unit during the pandemic.

Shut Down The CDC Already.  What is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) supposed to do? [...] [T]he CDC has set aside science and data to push the line that everyone — including younger and healthier people who are at very low risk of serious sickness or death from the prior and current circulating variations of coronavirus — should take the purportedly "safe and effective shots" despite the shots having proven to be both dangerous and ineffective at preventing sickness and transmission. [...] Early in the coronavirus scare, the CDC was in the forefront promoting coronavirus fearmongering, along with a crackdown on Americans' liberty in the name of countering coronavirus.  That was reason enough to shut down the CDC.  Since, the CDC has compounded its harmfulness through its actions related to the coronavirus shots.  The CDC has not only repeatedly failed to warn of the multiplicity of indicators of danger from the shots.  The CDC has even encouraged everyone to take the shots, asserting that doing so is the clear path to advancing health.

Google/YouTube Block Project Veritas Expose' on Pfizer Executive Discussing "Directed Evolution".  Project Veritas founder and CEO James O'Keefe announced earlier on Friday that Google/YouTube removed the expose' and undercover story showing Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer's Director of Research and Development, Strategic Operations — mRNA Scientific Planner, discussing the company pursuing "Directed Evolution" a process to modify the COVID-19 virus.  According to the reasoning provided by YouTube, as outlined by O'Keefe, the undercover interview violated the YouTube terms of service for disinformation around the COVID-19 vaccines.  This justification despite the claim itself was coming from Pfizer, not Project Veritas.

Responses to Veritas Expose.  [Scroll down] People are hitting Google like crazy with queries regarding Jordon Walker, Pfizer and Veritas.  As they did when I said "mass formation psychosis" on Rogan #1757, Google manually interferes with the searches, returning wishy washy "these results are changing rapidly" screens instead of actual links.  So, now we have a pretty clear smoking gun involving collusion between Pfizer and Google to suppress the story.  Then everything, anything, having to do with Jordon Walker, MD gets memory holed.  Wiped from the internet, including the Wayback machine.  And then the chaos agents, bots and trolls descend on all social media channels.  Sowing doubt that Jordon Walker is even a real person.  Floating paranoid conspiracy theories that this is all a big deep fake set up of Veritas, O'Keefe and myself.  Which of course get amplified by the usual actors.

Tributes paid to 'kind and caring' Cheshire woman, 19, after sudden death.  Tributes have been paid following the sudden death of a "kind and caring" Cheshire swimming teacher at the age of just 19.  Hugely popular Macclesfield Leisure Centre worker Mia Jennings, who taught hundreds of children and was also part of the HR team, sadly died over the weekend after suffering a cardiac arrest.  The leisure centre described Mia as "a model employee and star apprentice", adding that her death had "devastated" everyone who knew her.

Flashback — Top CDC Official Carol Baker On Vax Refusers:  'We Will Get Rid Of All The Whites In The United States'.  As Americans get new guidelines pushing children to get the mRNA clot shot in order to go to school, remember that this top CDC official, Dr. Carol Baker proposed eliminating white people in America to increase vaccination rates during a 2016 panel discussion.  Dr. Baker was appointed Chair of the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practises in 2009.  [Video clip]

Pfizer Finally Responds to Bombshell Project Veritas Sting Gone Bad.  Project Veritas' latest undercover sting may have been its most insane yet.  In a must-see video, the investigative journalism outlet's founder, James O'Keefe, confronts a man named Jordon Trishton Walker after a secretly-recorded admission that Pfizer is mutating COVID-19 to create vaccines.  Walker, who was described in the video as a Director of Research and Development, becomes combative with a physical confrontation eventually breaking out.  The results are wild.  [Tweet with video clip]  Now, after days of silence, Pfizer has finally responded.  In a lengthy statement, the pharmaceutical company, most known for its COVID-19 vaccine, claims it does not perform gain-of-function research.

'News management' is a fact of media life.  Recently, FOX News' very popular Tucker Carlson Tonight aired a report from the Veritas Project exposing a high-level Pfizer executive Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer's Director of R&D, Strategic Operations and an mRNA Scientific Planner, admitting on hidden camera details of nefarious actions currently proceeding back at the Home Office:  "One of the things we [Pfizer] are exploring is like, why don't we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create — preemptively develop new vaccines, right?  So, we have to do that.  If we're gonna do that though, there's a risk of like, as you could imagine — no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating [...] viruses," said Walker, adding that he believes Pfizer scientists are going about it slowly "because you obviously don't want to advertise that you are figuring out future mutations... "Don't tell anyone this... There is a risk... have to be very controlled to make sure this virus you mutate doesn't create something... the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest."  Watching the entire episode is both frightening and enlightening.  So many 'reveals' appear in just minutes and all heinous.  As of this writing, this story remains invisible.  There's virtually no coverage whatsoever on any 'mainstream media' outlet.

The New Triumvirate: Big Pharma, Big Government and Big Media.  We are now living under a new triumvirate: Big Pharma, Big Government and Big Media.  Thanks to the now-unchained Twitter, a viral video from Project Vertias that purportedly shows a senior Pfizer employee talking about covid vaccine and "directed evolution" has spread widely social media.  However, despite the shocking revelations from that seemingly high-level executive, there has been no detailed, follow-up analysis on the content of the video by American news organizations.  That is, with the exception of Tucker Carlson:  [Video clip] [...] All of this information is troubling, especially in the wake of increasing concerns about the long-term health consequences of the vaccines.  Yet, Big Media is not letting Big Pharma down at this point.  Newsweek, for example, responded by trashing Project Veritas and blaming those commenting on Twitter for spreading... misinformation.

Report: NIH Threw EcoHealth Alliance Millions Of Tax Dollars To Study Coronaviruses, Then Didn't Supervise.  The National Institutes of Health (NIH) did not give proper oversight to EcoHealth Alliance even after it awarded the organization millions of dollars to study bat coronaviruses, a new 72-page report from the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General found.  More than a year and a half after the OIG announced an investigation into the NIH's funding of the Wuhan lab suspected of playing a role in the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak, the inspector general officially announced that NIH and EcoHealth Alliance failed to comply with federal research and reporting standards.  That included failing to adequately monitor what U.S. money was being used for and whether that research was safe and legal.

Project Veritas: Pfizer isn't going to like this at all.  Well I know one guy who isn't long for his job:  Jordon Walker, Pfizer Director of Research and Development, Strategic Operations — mRNA.  He made the mistake of having a few beers with a Project Veritas journalist and bragging about what he is doing at Pfizer, and chatting about Pfizer's mRNA vaccine strategies.  None of what we see is flattering, and much of it is very disturbing.  It will surely fuel both outrage directed at Pfizer, and dark suspicions regarding their vaccine strategy.  It's because of the latter that I want to be careful parsing his words.  At lot of what he says is ambiguous; at times he speaks as if Pfizer scientists are considering doing something, and at times he says that they already are doing something.  That something is "directed evolution" of the COVID virus, which is effectively the same thing as gain of function research.  He called it the former and said it was to develop vaccines for new strains before they appear in the wild.  That, of course, is the rationale for doing gain of function.  It really is a distinction without a difference.  [Tweet with video clip]

Ex-NFL Player Jessie Lemonier Dies Suddenly at 25.  Former Detroit Lions linebacker Jessie Lemonier has died at 25, the Lions reported on Tuesday. [...] Lemonier leaves behind his girlfriend, who is pregnant with his child.

Eggs and weather cause blood clots; 'stroke season'; and 'sudden cardiac arrest' forms for high schoolers.  There's been a tremendous spike in medical emergencies all across the globe in the last year or so.  Coincidentally, it all began right around the time the Covid-19 "vaccine" became widely available and administered.  We know what's causing these events; they know we know; but that doesn't stop "them" from concocting some of the most ludicrous explanations you'll likely ever hear from the medical/scientific community.  The damage control machine is in hyperdrive.

Pfizer Director Physically Assaults James O'Keefe, Goes on Rampage in Coffee Shop.  On Thursday, Project Veritas shared a video of founder James O'Keefe was physically assaulted by Pfizer director Jordon Trishton Walker who went on an insane rampage after being confronted.  The day prior, Project Veritas dropped a bombshell undercover video showing Walker admitting that Pfizer considered mutating COVID to be ready with more vaccines.  "One of the things we're exploring is like, why don't we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create — preemptively develop new vaccines, right?  So, we have to do that.  If we're gonna do that though, there's a risk of like, as you could imagine — no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating [...] viruses," Walker said during the first video.

Elevated Rate of Facial Paralysis Identified After Pfizer COVID-19 Booster in Elderly: FDA.  An elevated rate of Bell's palsy, a type of facial paralysis, was identified among elderly people after COVID-19 vaccination with a Pfizer booster shot, U.S. regulators said in a new study.  The "small but statistically significant elevation" was detected after vaccination with Pfizer's old booster shot, which is no longer available in the United States, researchers with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in a preprint study.  The elevated rate resulted in an adjusted incidence rate ratio of 1.13 and remained consistent when researchers adjusted for different factors, such as prior COVID-19 infection.  A rate above one shows a possible connection between the vaccine and an adverse event.

Healthy 20-Yr-Old Soccer Player, Luke Abrahams, Dies Suddenly.  A 20-year-old soccer player from Northampton, England died suddenly on Monday morning.  The reasons for his death remain undisclosed at this time.  Luke Abrahams was a healthy athlete who tragically passed away at a very young age, prompting an outpouring of sympathy and support for those who lost their loved one far too soon.  Many tributes were also posted to social media by friends, teammates, and soccer teams that Abrahams played for.

Project Veritas Catches Pfizer R&D Official Stating Company Mutating COVID Viruses to Proactively Create Vaccines.  Project Veritas goes undercover and finds another top-level Pfizer Research and Development executive admitting the company is mutating COVID viruses to create vaccines.  Instead of calling it "gain of function" research, which is illegal, they are calling it "directed evolution."  This is very disturbing.  [Video clip]

Federal Watchdog Slams Fauci's Agency And EcoHealth Over Deal With Wuhan Lab.  Dr. Anthony Fauci's federal science agency and EcoHealth Alliance, which took a U.S. grant for bat virus research and paid part of it to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, made serious missteps, government investigators said Tuesday.  EcoHealth Alliance did not properly disclose its subgrant recipients — which included the Chinese lab which may have been the origin of COVID — and was two years late in filing a report that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) concluded may have revealed "gain of function," or experiments which make a virus more dangerous to humans, the Department of Health and Human Services' Inspector General said in a 72-page report.  Fauci headed the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which oversaw the grant and is part of NIH.

Pfizer Director of Research and Development, admitting the company is exploring mutating COVID to make new vaccines.  Project Veritas released a new video today exposing a Pfizer executive, Jordon Trishton Walker, who claims that his company is exploring a way to "mutate" COVID via "Directed Evolution" to preempt the development of future vaccines.  "One of the things we [Pfizer] are exploring is like, why don't we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create — preemptively develop new vaccines, right?  So, we have to do that.  If we're gonna do that though, there's a risk of like, as you could imagine — no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating [...] viruses," Walker said.  [Video clip]

Forgiving the Medically Brainwashed in the Post-COVID Era.  Medical tyranny starts with medical brainwashing.  Millions of Americans and individuals around the globe have been misled into believing that a series of vaccines — which did not go through the typical five to ten years of standard testing — are "safe and effective," the very same way that they were misled into believing that "abortion is health care."  Anyone who trusts their leaders, the mainstream media, and the majority of doctors believe these lies.  It is unfathomable to them that medical professionals or elected officials would mislead them on such a mass scale.  But they have.  While I refused the vaccine because I crunched the numbers myself during the pandemic, interviewed various doctors and nurses, and reviewed countless studies without having them interpreted for me, I was once this naive.

Pfizer Director Speaks Giddily About Manipulating SARS-CoV-2.  Watching a Project Veritas undercover sting operation invariably leaves me with mixed feelings.  On the one hand, I'm struck with admiration for yet another one of James O'Keefe's bold strokes against the corrupt empire that now dominates our world.  On the other hand, I'm shocked by the disclosure that the Empire is staffed by such moral and intellectual lightweights.  Though incredible, it appears that the subject of O'Keefe's latest sting, Jordon Walker, really is a Pfizer Director of Research & Development Strategic Operations.  Here he is giddily talking about deliberately mutating SARS-CoV-2 by means of "directed evolution" in order to keep Pfizer's mRNA vaccine gravy train going.  Click on he image below to watch the entire revolting spectacle.

Deborah Birx Openly Admits to Lying About the COVID Vaccines to Manipulate the American People.  One of the strangest parts of the COVID-19 pandemic has been all of the public health "experts" who openly lied to the American people while expecting to be lauded as heroes in response.  Certainly, most have witnessed Dr. Anthony Fauci's grotesque level of arrogance over the years, with numerous examples of the good doctor admitting to lying in order to get the outcome he desired from the public.  For his efforts, he's got magazine covers and million-dollar awards.  But we shouldn't forget about Dr. Deborah Birx, the other half of Donald Trump's initial COVID-19 advisory team.  Though she has rarely drawn the same ire as Fauci, there's little reason to believe she wasn't just as duplicitous.  As RedState reported recently, Birx is busy promoting her new book, and it contains several brazen admissions of dishonesty, including misleading the Trump administration by disobeying orders and altering reports.

FDA Rushed Approval for Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine to Enable Vaccine Mandates: Emails.  U.S. regulators sped up the approval of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine to enable vaccine mandates, according to newly released emails.  Pfizer and BioNTech asked the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in May 2021 to approve their vaccine.  Regulators said publicly that the review of the Biologics License Application would likely be done by January 2022, but behind the scenes top agency officials were pushing the Office of Vaccines Research and Review (OVRR) to quickly complete the review.  Dr. Marion Gruber, the head of the office at the time, and her deputy Dr. Phil Krause outlined in a memorandum that the review could not be done before Sept. 15, 2021, according to one of the newly released messages.

Cardiologist Calling on FAA to Recognize Spike Protein-Induced Heart Damage in Pilots.  At least seven million Americans have had their hearts damaged either by Covid or Covid shots.  It is also "within the realm of possibility" that as many as 100 million Americans have developed some degree of heart damage, according to cardiologist and attorney Dr. Thomas Levy.  That includes American pilots, who, even with abnormal heart rates, are allowed to continue to execute their duties.  Discussing his recent article "Myocarditis: Once Rare, Now Common" with Steve Kirsch, founder of the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation (VSRF) last week, Dr. Levy maintained that as of right now, there's no way to put a precise number on spike protein-induced cardiac issues, but noted that the heart issues, and particularly myocarditis, or inflammation of a heart muscle, are "nothing like pre-Covid."

Covid jabs were designed to cause harm, warns pharmaceutical executive.  It's not that covid so-called "vaccines" just so happened to turn out ineffective and deadly.  Rather they were designed as such, according to Alexandra "Sasha" Latypova, a 25-year pharmaceutical industry veteran-turned-investigator who says the Department of Defense (DoD) had "very clear intent to harm" by executing a "mass genocide of Americans."  Under the DoD's control and direction, drug manufacturers like Pfizer, Moderna, and Janssen started mass-producing the shots for Operation Warp Speed — long before the first cases of "covid" even appeared, it turns out.  These "figurehead" organizations, Latypova insists, were just obeying the DoD's orders.  What this means is the United States military oversaw the creation and rollout of these "covid countermeasures," as they were classified before being erroneously dubbed as "vaccines."  This is why they called it Operation Warp Speed:  because it was a military warfare operation, not a "public health" operation.

The media ignored a very fateful event in the waning days of the Obama administration.  Independent journalist Mike McCormick served as a White House stenographer during the Obama administration, an experience that provided him with both insider knowledge and a unique perspective.  In a recent Substack post, McCormick questioned why, less than two weeks prior to former President Donald Trump's inauguration, the Obama administration chose to give the "green light" to lift the moratorium on federal funding for gain-of-function research, or research intended to increase the lethality or the transmissibility of a pathogen.  In the process, he exposed some fateful developments, largely unreported by the press, that occurred in the weeks before former President Barack Obama handed over the reins to his successor.

COVID Vaxes — It's Not 'The More the Merrier'.  The expression, "If some is good, more must be better" might apply to chocolate, vacations, and American Thinker articles, but not to everything in life.  I speak of COVID vaccines, a hot topic in personal discussions and on social media.  The corporate media and government, including most world health authorities follow a similar quote, attributed to May West, "If a little is great, and a lot is better, then way too much is just about right!"  Is that so?  Are an endless series of mRNA "vaccines" really in the best interests of virtually all Americans for whom they are recommended?  I know many individuals who have been fully vaccinated against COVID, and had three additional boosters, including the newest bivalent vaccine, who have come down with COVID.  Not hospital or ICU COVID as we saw three years ago, but bad flu-like COVID, the type that lands one in bed for several days.

Emails: Fauci was Part of Group Aiming to 'Disprove' Lab Leak Theory.  Newly unearthed emails reveal that former head of the National Institute of Allergy Infectious Disease (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci, was part of a group of scientists assembled for the sole purpose of "disproving" the COVID-19 origin theory claiming that the virus originated from a lab in Wuhan, China.  According to the Daily Caller, others in the group besides Fauci included Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH); Jeremy Farrar, director of Wellcome Trust; Kristian Andersen of Scripps Research; and Dutch virologist Ron Fouchier, among others.  The emails revealing the collaborative effort were uncovered by journalist Jimmy Tobias after a prolonged legal battle with the NIH.  In an email sent on February 8th, 2020, Andersen explicitly wrote that the group's sole purpose was "trying to disprove any type of lab theory."

35 Year Old Texas Middle School Coach Dies Suddenly Of A Massive Heart Attack In Front Of His Class.  His playful, easygoing personality made him an easy pick to be a student's favorite coach.  But 35-year-old Jacob Sanchez was also an inspiration, a leader and an innovator that made him so likable to those he worked with at Devine Middle School.  On Thursday, Sanchez collapsed at the start of class and staff members conducted CPR.

Athletes are dropping like flies from heart attacks and other "unknown causes".  The news is too huge and too widespread to be labeled "misinformation" as athletes around the globe are dropping dead from cardiac arrest like never before, by the thousands.  Perfectly healthy athletes in every arena, on every court, on every field of play, simply dying out of the blue from heart failure, and the media won't dare mention the Covid clot shots they almost all received prior to the headlines of "died suddenly."  All ages are affected, from middle school and high school to college and professional, nobody is 'immune' to the deadly clot shots, that create millions of microscopic vascular clots that strain the heart and lead to sudden death during rigorous sports.

Connecticut Bill Would Allow 12-Year-Olds to Get Vaccines Without Parental Consent.  The Connecticut state legislature has proposed a bill that, if approved, would give children 12 and older the right to get vaccinated without parental consent.  The proposed legislation, introduced by Democratic Rep. Kevin Ryan of the state's 139th District, is called "Bill No. 5480" and would be known as "an act allowing children 12 years of age and older to receive a vaccination without the consent of a parent or guardian."

Canadian Doctor Says Increase In Strokes Is Due To "Stroke Season": A Phenomenon He Only Recently Heard About.  Perfectly healthy athletes are unexpectedly collapsing during games or practices and, in many cases, dying.  Celebrities are also dying suddenly of heart-related issues.  But it's not just heart attacks that are causing this insane phenomenon.  Hospitals in Canada and in the US are seeing an increase in the number of stroke patients.  Canadian Urgent Care Physician Dr. Raj Bhardwaj spoke with CBC News' Rob Brown on Sunday about the incredible increase in the number of strokes healthcare providers have been seeing.

Doctor: 50 Million Americans Have Serious Heart Damage Due To COVID "Vaccines".  According to Dr. Thomas Levy, a minimum of 7 million Americans now have hearts damaged by covid "vaccines."  It is also within the realm of possibility that around 100 million Americans have at least some degree of heart damage due to the mRNA technology shots.  Dr. Levy says that as of right now, there's no way to know for certain just how badly and widespread the heart damage has been.

Time Shows That The 'Paranoid' People Were Correct About COVID.  We are now three years after the COVID-19 apocalypse began, and the CDC and WHO still refuse to acknowledge that the virus was created in and escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).  But they, along with all our institutions, have lied so often and so egregiously that 72% of the public doesn't believe them.  If nothing else, that is a very positive sign.  The evidence for the lab leak is as overwhelming as the evidence for a zoonotic origin is non-existent.  For anyone trained in the art of biology to deny the lab origin betrays either deceit or, worse, willful ignorance.  Here I examine just three facts that together, if not singularly, prove dispositively that SARS-CoV-2 was a man-made lab creation.  Not least of which is that they told us exactly what they were going to do.

Natural Immunity [is] Superior to Vaccination Against Infection in Children: Study.  Children with natural immunity were better protected from COVID-19 infection and hospitalization than children who were vaccinated, according to a new study.  Children aged 5 to 11 with post-infection protection, or natural immunity from an infection with Omicron or a subvariant, and no vaccination had 88.4 percent protection against reinfection, researchers in North Carolina found.  That was compared to 59.7 percent protection against Omicron from a primary series of a messenger RNA vaccine, or two doses of vaccine from Pfizer or Moderna, among the uninfected.  The protection remained higher over time until month eight when the protection from natural immunity among the unvaccinated was estimated to be 18.8 percent and the protection from vaccination was pegged at 22.5 percent.

Lockdown Lunatic Chris Hipkins to Become New Zealand's Next Prime Minister.  Education Minister Chris Hipkins is set to become New Zealand's next prime minister after emerging as the only candidate Saturday to replace Jacinda Ardern.  Hipkins still needs the endorsement from his Labour Party colleagues, but that's believed to be a formality at this point.  He'd have just over eight months in the role until the next general election. [...] Hipkins became well-known during the COVID pandemic when he emerged as an authoritarian crisis manager for New Zealand's government.  Here he is in July 2021 warning that the government will start tracking down individuals who haven't "come forward" to take the COVID jab.  [Tweet]

COVID Jab's Impact On The Brain, Heart & Fertility.  "You would never want to take a vaccine and have it go to your organs." — Dr. Peter McCullough  [Video clip]

Pro-Vaccine Elon Musk Admits Second Covid Booster Almost Killed Him.  Elon Musk took to Twitter late Friday evening to share his personal experience with the Covid shots, explaining he ran into "major side effects."  In a series of tweets, the Twitter CEO said he felt like he "was dying" and that a young cousin of his in "peak health" suffered myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle which has exploded around the world, particularly among young men, in the wake of the vaccine roll out.

Getting vaccinated for covid four or more times results in near-complete collapse of the immune system, bombshell study finds.  Writer and former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson says he has in his possession evidence from a study showing that covid "booster" vaccines push the immune system over the edge, causing an almost total collapse of immune function.  In a series of tweets, Berenson wrote that based on the study's findings, no more booster shots should go into any arms.  "Boosters need to be halted immediately.  HALTED.  IMMEDIATELY.  Stack coming," Berenson wrote, Stack referring to his Substack blog. "There's a new paper.  It's bad.  How bad?  I've shown it to two physicians so far.  One said he 'had a seizure' reading it.  The other said something worse."  The study comes from China, which is where many believe the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) originated.  It shows that after the fourth injection — meaning the two primary jabs and two subsequent booster shots — a person's immune system is pretty much shot.

The US Department of Defence Declares War on Humanity.  There is a new culture rising under the censors and it will take over all institutions in the next ten or twenty years.  Every single one — media, medicine, academia, every government institution — is poisonous and needs root and branch reform.  The faster the better.  They have become so malignant they have triggered genocide.  Nothing that comes out of any official body can be trusted.  In fact, best to assume the opposite is true.  Even the weather is exaggerated to '"prove" "global warming". [...] Facebook is toast.  I've been banned or limited every time I warn about vaccine damage.  Multiply that by 50 million people because everybody knows about the excess deaths, their friends and family members damaged, disabled, dealing with some new weird illness.  Facebook has sold the toxic story of "safe and effective" and removed true content for Pfizer and the White House.  How many people did it help to kill and maim?

Silk Describes How Her Sister Diamond 'Died Suddenly' in Her Kitchen.  At the Saturday memorial for her sister Lynette "Diamond" Hardaway, Silk told the crowd of supporters, including President Trump, that the vaccine may have been a factor in her sister's sudden death.  Silk then called for an investigation.  "There's something going on!"  Silk spoke to the crowd on Saturday before President Trump took the stage.  Silk described how her sister "died suddenly" and how she tried to save her.

Utah Plastic Surgeon Allegedly Destroyed COVID Vaccines, Gave Fake Shots to Children.  A Utah plastic surgeon, along with three others, is facing charges for allegedly administering fake COVID-19 vaccines to children, destroying vaccines, and distributing falsified vaccine cards.  Dr. Michael Kirk Moore, the owner of the Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah in Midvale, has been charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), according to court documents.  Moore's office manager Kari Burgoyne, receptionist Sandra Flores, neighbor Kristin Andersen, and the Plastic Surgery Institute are also charged in the case.  The defendants are accused of running a vaccine scheme out of the physician's business.

14 absurdities on full public display.  [#9] In the USA, a chiropractor is being sued by the US Federal Government for half a trillion dollars.  His crime?  He recommended that people should take vitamin D and zinc during the fake pandemic. [...] [#12] As a direct result of the entirely useless and predictably damaging lockdowns (I predicted the damage they would cause the minute they were announced) and the deliberately planned scare campaigns about the rebranded flu, one in five adults in the UK is now clinically depressed.  That's never going to get any better.

Secret CDC Report CONFIRMS 118K Youths "Died Suddenly" After Vax Rollout.  Dr. Anthony Fauci infamously used propaganda, lies, and manipulation to coerce parents into getting their children vaccinated.  In the aftermath of those shots, 118,000 youths "died suddenly" by October of 2022.  The truth about the Covid vaccine's safety had been buried deep within Fauci's own lies and deceit and confidential United States Government and Pfizer documents.  A secret Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report has revealed that nearly half a million children and young adults died within a year of Fauci's fateful announcement that younger people can also be "vaccinated" for COVID-19.  Over 1118,000 of those deaths are suspected to be due to the Covid-19 vaccine's dangerous side effects, according to reports found by The Daily Exposé.  Thanks to an institution known as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OEC), some data can be analyzed about how these injections fare in the bodies of human beings.  The OEC is an intergovernmental organization with 38 member countries founded in 1961 to stimulate economic progress and world trade.  And for some reason, they host a wealth of data on excess deaths.

21 Year Old Surfer Evan McMillen Dies Suddenly.  The cameras show Evan standing on his feet on his board, and then suddenly collapsing into the water.  He was found minutes later when he was given CPR and then rushed to the hospital, but it was too late.

'The Biggest Fraud in a Generation': Hundreds of Billions in 'Covid Relief Funds' Have Gone Missing.  The United States government presided over what is being called the "biggest fraud in a generation" during the Covid pandemic.  According to the latest reports on the Covid relief program, between $163 billion and $400 billion out of a total of $900 billion in funding has gone missing.  The Department of Labor has admitted that at least $163 billion of the Covid relief funds did not make it into the right hands, Pete Hegseth reported.  The $163 billion in "lost" funds includes fraud — and the estimate is on the "low end," Hegseth added.

Tony Blair Wants National Databases to Track Vaccination Status for a 'Whole Slew' of Future Vaccines.  Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair called for a "digital infrastructure" to track vaccination status at Davos 2023.  A conference hosted by the World Economic Forum (WEF) is indeed an appropriate venue for Blair's most inappropriate demand, since WEF previously released its plan for a digital ID required to do or buy anything.  "You need to know who's been vaccinated and who hasn't been," Blair exclaimed.  "You've got to have the proper digital infrastructure."  WEF's digital ID would essentially be a social credit score, as the ID would be required to access social media and government benefits, vote, open bank accounts, book travel, shop, access healthcare and insurance, own electronic devices, and make online purchases, among many other applications.  If you want to know how that turns out, look at Communist China.  WEF has already partnered with the Dutch and Canadian governments to roll out a digital ID, and Tony Blair seems to be ready, willing, and eager to assist WEF as well.

The Disturbing Precedent behind Dangerous COVID Shots.  An incident from 100 years ago has a remarkable echo in the mRNA injection reality of today.  After radium's discovery by Marie and Pierre Curie in 1898, one of its commercial applications was in the production of radiant watches for seeing time in the dark. [...] From 1917 to 1926, these [luminous] paints were used to paint watch dials at the company's factory. [...] The painters were instructed to point their brushes before dipping them in the paint in a technique known as "lip, dip, paint."  They were told that the paint was totally harmless.  The women painted for years while the radiation slowly, steadily, and silently sickened them. [...] By 1927, over 50 workers had died from radiation poisoning.  Meanwhile, in 1923, the New Jersey Department of Labor was contacted about conditions in the plant, but it took no action against the company. [...] The parallels between the radium paint fraud against the workers and our current COVID-19 mRNA fraud are numerous.  The first and most significant item in common is that both novel products undeniably cause disease and death.

How the 'vaccine lies' will play out.  The internet is exploding with talk of sudden deaths, vaccine injuries, and altered immune systems — and it's coming from all corners of the world.  The National Herald India ran a story in December titled "Covid-19: What explains the sudden deaths?"  In Australia, an alternative news service declared, "Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) is taking the world by storm" while openly blaming the COVID vaccine.  Over at Channel News Asia, their report, "Sudden deaths: Why do seemingly fit and healthy people die for no apparent reason?," blames most of the deaths on undiagnosed, underlying heart problems — and never mentions the vaccine.  While speculation runs rampant, and social media are creating hashtags like #suddenlydied, one man seems to have a plan to counteract the craziness:  let the people know how it's going to play out before it happens.  Media personality and conservative journalist J.D. Rucker [... told] his readers and podcast listeners that the "powers" behind the vaccine push knew they would eventually be caught; they never believed they could get away with it.  The goal, he says, was always to get as many people "jabbed" as many times as possible before the populace realized there was a problem.

Mother Cries After her Kid Was Taken To Get Vaccinated By Her Mother Against Her Wishes, Now The Child Has Serious Heart Issues.  "My mother snuck my kid to get a COVID vaccine so he could play sports, after was his physical, doctor said heart rate was shockingly low, went to cardiologist, I said it was the vaccine, doctor said not possible, 1 year follow up, they say he could have a sudden heart attack."  [Video clip]

Has COVID Backlash Sparked a Movement?  [Scroll down] As an important example of how quickly social revolutions can upend entire systems, I encourage you to take a look at a recent article on The Conservative Treehouse in which intrepid intellectual warrior Sundance has asked his readers a simple question:  if you did not take the COVID-19 shots, why not?  The impetus for his inquiry comes from an informal poll he had conducted showing that 85% of CTH's Twitter followers remained un-jabbed.  Even though his readers have always had a healthy skepticism of government, Sundance was surprised that such a high percentage would have withstood the years-long pressure campaign for universal "vaccination" from the combined efforts of government, news media, medical authorities, and corporate proselytizers.  What he got in response to his question is nothing less than stunning.  Thousands of commenters took the time to answer, and their words alone could serve as ample testament to how confusing, oppressive, heart-wrenching, and ultimately revelatory these last three years of life with COVID have been.  It is entirely clear that enduring the government's reaction to the virus has been much more difficult and exhausting than surviving the virus itself.  Again, if only as a form of mental camaraderie and emotional catharsis from our shared struggle, I encourage you to spend some time reading through the myriad comments.  It is obvious that people everywhere have been desperate to express themselves free from the bounds of government-controlled censorship.  There are stories of loss from illness but also stories of lost loved ones separated from their families for no rational reason.  There are stories of Americans who at first trusted the government's COVID warnings only to become vehement critics of authorities' mountain of lies.  There are those who once thought highly of the CDC and America's medical professions who now see both the bureaucrats and "scientists" as mere political pawns.  There are those who did not believe that totalitarianism was overtaking America until they witnessed firsthand the government-directed censorship of their health-related Tweets and Facebook posts.  There are those who did not believe that freedom was under serious attack until they experienced lockdowns, arbitrary rule-making, and the imposition of a police State under the banner of a medical tyranny established for the "greater good."

Stop the Pandemic Treaty WHO Power Grab.  The World Health Organization (WHO) failed to forewarn the world about the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.  The measures it mandated did not prevent the loss of lives and collapse of economies but helped pharma giants make billions through enforced vaccination.  Against all evidence, it gave China a pass on a possible lab leak of the virus.  Now, pursuing its massively funded left-elitist agenda, it wants member countries to surrender sovereignty over healthcare decisions.  President Joe Biden is readily submitting to and endorsing this global power grab. [...] After the pandemic broke out, President Donald Trump had cut American ties with the WHO, blaming it for "mismanaging and covering up the spread" of Covid-19, siding with communist China, and failing to hold the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) responsible for the deaths and economic devastation.  It took guts and forcefulness to do that.  But Biden reversed that immediately on assuming the presidency, rejoining the WHO, and assigning the discredited Dr. Anthony Fauci to represent the country on its executive committee.  Ideologically aligned with the left-elite, Biden is in essence bestowing an American imprimatur on an initiative that is most un-American in spirit and fosters oppression and control.

Wuhan-Lab Linked Group Gets $7 Million Government Grant For Pandemic Research.  President Joe Biden has awarded EcoHealth Alliance — a controversial non-profit that partnered with the Wuhan Institute of Virology on manipulating viruses similar to COVID-19 — with new multi-million dollar grants for pandemic-related research.  Run by notorious COVID-19 "natural origins" propagandist and Chinese Communist Party-funded researcher Peter Daszak, EcoHealth Alliance received millions of dollars from Anthony Fauci's National Institute of Health (NIH) agency for work on "killer" viruses.  Summaries of their joint research — recently wiped from the Chinese lab's website — reveal scientists creating "chimeric" viruses that spread in humans at rates "equivalent to epidemic strains of SARS-CoV."

CDC Knowingly Left Serious Adverse Events Off Post-Vaccination Surveys, Documents Show.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) didn't include serious adverse events like heart inflammation on post-vaccination surveys even though the agency knew the issues could be linked to COVID-19 vaccines, documents show.  Even before the surveys were rolled out in December 2020 after the first vaccines were authorized, the CDC knew that myocarditis — a form of heart inflammation since confirmed as being caused by the Pfizer and Moderna shots — and other serious adverse events were of "special interest" when it came to the vaccines, according to a newly disclosed version of the protocol for the survey system.  The Nov. 19, 2020, protocol for V-safe, the survey system, lists myocarditis, stroke, death, and a dozen "prespecified medical conditions."  The protocol was obtained by the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), a nonprofit that seeks transparency around health information.  All of the conditions can cause severe symptoms.

China's Missing COVID-19 Data.  Considering aggregate data, anecdotal accounts, and common sense, it is difficult to downplay the significance of Beijing's sudden decision to reverse its once prized zero COVID policy, which Chinese President Xi Jinping had claimed as a national and personal victory.  On January 18, during a Lunar New Year message, Xi made his first public comments on the wave of infections that follow China's reopening, saying that he was "most worried about its spread in China's vast countryside, where medical services and resources are insufficient."  The following day, health authorities announced that critical COVID-19 cases have peaked in China's hospitals.  But reliable data on the ongoing COVID-19 surge is hard to come by.

Major League Soccer Player Anton Walkes Dies At Age 25.  Major League Soccer player Anton Walkes died in a boating accident in South Florida, according to reports shared early Thursday morning.  Several outlets report that Walkes died as a result of a boat crash.  Wales was reportedly found unconscious at the scene of a two-boat crash late Wednesday afternoon near Miami.  Miami Fire and Rescue allegedly performed CPR on Walkes.  He was later pronounced dead.

A nurse speaks out.  As a nurse for over 20 years I can tell you it is DELIBERATE that hospitals DO NOT ASK about covid vaccination status.  Epic (the most common hospital charting system) does not register shots given at pop up vaccination clinics, roving vans or pharmacies or from many other health organizations (as you noted).  MANY of my patients show covid vax status as 'unknown', but when I ask them many have already have 4 shots (the people in my state are ridiculously compliant).  We have an extensive covid checklist that we ask all patients, even outpatients, before they enter the hospital -- so whether it's a quick EKG or a huge surgery that's going to require a 4 day stay you get asked the 'covid questions' [...]

Emails Reveal the CDC's Role in Silencing COVID-19 Dissent.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) played a direct role in policing permissible speech on social media throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.  Confidential emails obtained by Reason show that Facebook moderators were in constant contact with the CDC, and routinely asked government health officials to vet claims relating to the virus, mitigation efforts such as masks, and vaccines. [...] After Elon Musk took control of Twitter, he permitted several independent journalists to peruse the company's previous communications with the FBI, the CDC, the White House, and government officials elsewhere.  These disclosures, which have become known as the Twitter Files, reveal that government bureaucrats put substantial pressure on Twitter to restrict alleged misinformation relating to elections, Hunter Biden, and COVID-19.

How the CDC Became the Speech Police.  Anthony Fauci, the federal government's most prominent authority on COVID-19, had his final White House press conference two days before Thanksgiving 2022. The event served as a send-off for the long-serving director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who was finally stepping down after nearly four decades on the job. [...] Indeed, the U.S. public's understanding of COVID-19 — its virality, how to prevent its spread, and even where it comes from — was largely controlled by Fauci and bureaucrats like him, to a greater degree than most people realize.  The federal government shaped the rules of online discussion in unprecedented and unnerving ways.

Good riddance to Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand.  One of the most obnoxious wokester players on the world stage surprised everyone Wednesday by saying she was calling it quits. [...] It couldn't have come soon enough.  She was a wokester fanatic whose gun-grabbing, China-kowtowing, sneeriness at conservatives, softness on crime, and draconian COVID lockdowns ran New Zealand's economy into the ground and it all just caught up to her.  Despite the international plaudits that brought from the international left, the reason she got out was that she was loathed at home, and wouldn't have been able to win re-election in the general election in October.  She didn't want her name attached to the loss to her entire party that was coming.  In the last month, her popularity fell to a stunning 29%, from an initial high of 70%. [...] These leftists have made a hash of things, and New Zealanders finally got tired of it.  Ardern could no longer deny what was going on with that 29% popularity rating that just kept moving lower.  It goes to show that a progressive leader, with dictatorial tendencies, doesn't take long to grow very unpopular, even from an initial base of good will.  Ardern leaves her office as a failure, despite the fakey-fake words of praise even from her (undoubtedly delighted) opponents at her exit.

Moderna CEO at Davos: Moderna Was Working on COVID Vaccine in Jan. 2020, Before COVID-19 Was Named.  When did Moderna start developing its COVID-19 vaccine?  Moderna's CEO Stephane Bancel already made headlines at World Economic Forum's (WEF) elitist Davos 2023 conference by saying he wants an mRNA vaccine factory on every continent and by confirming his negotiations with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to bring Moderna's COVID-19 vaccines to China.  But there's more:  Bancel admitted on CNBC at Davos that Moderna was already working on a COVID-19 vaccine in January 2020 before the virus had reached most countries and before it even had a specific name.  Bancel went on CNBC at Davos to discuss a new Moderna RSV vaccine.  But something far more interesting slipped out.

COVID Mess: 'Something Very Dark Is Happening'.  [Scroll down] "Something very dark was happening," wrote mRNA pioneer Dr. Robert Malone in his book Lies My Government Told Me after his wife, Jill's, self-published COVID guide was censored on Amazon in February 2020.  "Little did we realize that this was just a very early example of what was to become a large movement over the next two years — a global movement involving collusion between government, corporatized legacy media, social media, big technology, big finance, and nongovernmental organizations — to completely control and shape all information and thought concerning the public health response to the novel coronavirus."  Saving lives had, in effect, become a crime.  With all we now know about the catastrophic COVID response, the low efficacy of shots and boosters, and the horrific treatment of the vaccine-injured (like those featured in Jennifer Sharp's must-see film Anecdotal), Americans still can't get unencumbered access to cheap, safe, and effective repurposed drugs to treat COVID early.  Drugs which, if you believe Dr. Kory (and I do), could've saved countless patients, like Dave, from "needless death."

Why 'trust the science' is nonsensical.  "The science has changed," the so-called expert said as she faced the camera with a matter-of-fact expression.  For so long, Americans have been hearing the mantra "follow the science" or "trust the science."  We have obeyed to our detriment.  We are discovering, through meta-studies by Johns Hopkins delving into a mountain of peer-reviewed reports, that, lo and behold, ALL the "scientific modeling" generated initially about COVID-19 has been proven to be egregiously wrong!  Masking, social distancing and the lockdown of non-essential workers appear to have only helped by 0.2%, which, as any statistical nerd knows, is well within the margin of error.  "Scientific modeling" is a process where data are generally fed into a computer program to attempt to predict an outcome.  The problem with them is that there is no guarantee that all pertinent variables have been provided in order to determine an accurate conclusion and is, therefore, an approximation at best.  Used in predicting earthquakes and weather patterns, modeling can become more accurate with more data and time, but for use with a new virus where the appropriate data are not available yet is simply imprudent.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern resigns a month after hot mic insult.  New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced Thursday that she would not seek re-election and will be stepping down next month.  Ardern made the shocking announcement at her Labor party's annual caucus meeting, saying she "no longer had enough in the tank" to do the job.  "I'm leaving, because with such a privileged role comes responsibility," she said.  "The responsibility to know when you are the right person to lead and also when you are not.  I know what this job takes.  And I know that I no longer have enough in the tank to do it justice.  It's that simple." [...] In August 2021, the country was put on lockdown for at least three days after a single case of the coronavirus was found in one community.  In December, she was caught on a hot mic calling opposition leader David Seymour an "arrogant p----" during an exchange in which Seymour asked if Ardern could "give an example of her making a mistake, apologizing for it properly and fixing it," The Guardian reported.

DeSantis calls out 'biomedical security state,' seeks to permanently ban mandates on COVID-19 vaccine, masks.  Gov. Ron DeSantis says he's seeking to protect Florida from the "biomedical security state," by permanently banning COVID-19 vaccines and masks.  "It required us over the past few years to stand against major institutions in our society:  The bureaucracy, the medical establishment, legacy media and even the President of the United States who, together, were working to impose a biomedical security state on society."  DeSantis said while speaking at the Todd Herendeen Theater in Panama City Beach.  If approved by lawmakers, DeSantis' efforts will permanently restrict the COVID-19 vaccine mandates and mask rules in schools and prevents public and private employers from hiring and firing individuals based on their vaccine status.

New Zealand prime minister to step down by February 7.  New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced that she will step down by Feb. 7.  She has governed for 5½ years as prime minister and she is out of energy.  She said she does not have "enough in the tank" to do the job ahead of an election later this year. [...] My first thought was that this is good news for the average freedom-loving person in New Zealand.  Ardern has governed as an authoritarian tyrant, often looking out of control during the coronavirus pandemic.  She locked down the entire country of New Zealand because of one case of COVID-19.  One case.  She encouraged people to turn in their neighbors to police if they were seen talking to people outside.  She is a gun grabber, especially after the mass shooting in a Christchurch mosque in 2019.

The COVID jab: An emerging health disaster whose name cannot be spoken.  While from the beginning it appeared that the various COVID shots from different pharmaceutical companies were relatively safe to take, time is proving this assumption to be very false, with the data increasingly suggesting that the jab not only poses a significant, dangerous, and immediate health risk to young people, its long term effects on everyone who either chose to get it or was forced to by government mandate could very well be disastrous.  First the immediate risks.  The numbers of individuals who have died suddenly and abruptly after getting the jab has been horrifying and shocking.  Never in my life have I seen so many young and healthy people suddenly keeling over in public situations and dying.  [Numerous links]  In fact, this last story illustrates the overall refusal to face facts by the medical and scientific community.  These were the people who foisted these COVID jabs upon us — often by force and against our will — and now they seem terrified that their advice might actually be leading to real harm.  Thus, they rationalize the facts to make believe the jab might not be as damaging as it is, despite the facts before their very eyes.  Nor is this intellectual dishonesty from the pro-COVID-jab community a new phenomenon.  For example, for years several doctors on Twitter for years pushed masking aggessively.  We now discover that these same doctors never existed, their accounts fully faked.  We have also learned recently how the Biden administration and Facebook coordinated a COVID shot propaganda campaign in anticipation of new studies linking blood clots to the jab.  Nor has the dishonesty ended.  In December, even as New York Democratic Party Mayor Eric Adams began pushing masks again on his citizens, the White House's top Covid Advisor, Dr. Jha, admitted on a recent zoom call that there's "no study in the world that show that masks work".

CNN's COVID Nazi, Who Wished The Unvaxxed Were Locked Away Forever Now Admits The CDC Is Cooking The Books And Overcounting COVID Deaths.  CNN medical analyst and Washington Post columnist Dr. Leana Wen admitted in a column, Friday, that the medical community is "overcounting" the amount of "COVID deaths and hospitalizations."  Wen, who writes an occasional Washington Post column providing her observations on the pandemic, masking and other COVID-related subjects, cited sources claiming that most "patients diagnosed with COVID are actually in the hospital for some other illness."  [Video clip]

Will Joe Biden's latest COVID 'big con' spark a second American Revolution?  The Stamp Act was used to impose tyrannical authority of the British aristocracy on colonials, the proto-Americans.  COVID was the hammer Democrats employed to impose their will on We the People.  Using a spurious COVID health crisis as justification, Washington elites suppressed the Bill of Rights, imposed quasi-martial law, and re-imposed a tyranny we rebelled against 247 years ago. Evidence clearly shows that Washington consistently lied about COVID — it was magnificent scam.  They ginned up a virus that was as dangerous to most Americans as the seasonal flu — it was not bubonic plague.  COVID was a danger only to the immunocompromised and the elderly.  Numbers of "COVID deaths" were greatly exaggerated.  Autopsy studies and CDC demographic data show that 73 percent to 88 percent of those listed as COVID deaths were people who died not from COVID but with COVID, and because of pre-existing life threatening conditions.  Dr. Anthony Fauci urged parents to vaccinate their children, in whom the risk of death from COVID was less than 0.03 percent.  Meanwhile, adverse impacts of mRNA vaccines were falsified, hidden and suppressed.  Masks don't work.  Lockdowns, social isolation, and school closures not only didn't work, but had catastrophic consequences.  More than 200,000 small businesses closed in the first year of COVID.  Children, especially the poor, lost two years of schooling.  Democrats knew this and yet pounded away with danger warnings and mandates or advisories that violated the Bill of Rights.  They abrogated the rule of law.

Are Mask Mandates Coming Back?  Biden DOJ Argues to Bring Back Policy in Court.  The Biden administration on Tuesday argued that the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention should have the authority to issue an immediate mask mandate on travelers.  The Department of Justice had appealed a federal judge's ruling in April that said the CDC did not have the legal authority to issue a mask mandate, according to Reuters.  Noting that the crux of the issue was whether the CDC could impose the mandate without a public comment period, Justice Department attorney Brian Springer said action without waiting to hear from the public was essential "to prevent the possible infections and deaths that could result if people didn't do the simple thing of just putting on a mask while they were traveling."

Woman with No History of Heart Issues Dies Suddenly of Cardiac Arrest, Friend Calls on Community for Help.  A Las Vegas woman has started a fundraising campaign for the family of a friend who died suddenly Jan. 8.  Michele Morgan told KLAS-TV that her friend, Alicia Groeblinghoff, went into cardiac arrest while working out at a gym.  Groeblinghoff, died the next day.  She was 46, according to her obituary.  Morgan told KLAS her friend had no history of heart problems before she "suddenly, without warning, collapsed at the gym and suffered a massive cardiac arrest."

Biden Administration Clings to Covid Authority, Seeks to Reverse Ruling Blocking Transportation Mask Mandate.  The Justice Department on Tuesday asked an appeals court to reverse an April 2022 ruling that overturned the CDC's public transportation mask mandate.  Appearing before a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, Justice Department lawyer Brian Springer argued that the CDC should have the authority to declare universal mask requirements during a public-health crisis, such as the COVID pandemic.  It is necessary "to prevent the possible infections and deaths that could result if people didn't do the simple thing of just putting on a mask while they were traveling," Springer argued, according to Reuters.  U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle ruled last year that the CDC's mask mandate violated the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) because it was implemented "without allowing public participation through the APA's notice and comment procedures."

Remember when they violently detained this guy for not wearing a mask on a ski lift?  You know how all the people who went full dystopia want to now pretend this never happened?  [Tweet]  Yeah, it happened.  Less than a year ago.

The FAA has very quietly tacitly admitted that the EKGs of pilots are no longer normal.  In the October 2022 version of the FAA Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners, the FAA quietly widened the EKG parameters beyond the normal range (from a PR max of .2 to unlimited).  And they didn't widen the range by a little.  They widened it by a lot.  It was done after the vaccine rollout.  This is extraordinary.  They did it hoping nobody would notice.  It worked for a while.  Nobody caught it.  But you can't hide these things for long.  This is a tacit admission from the US government that the COVID vaccine has damaged the hearts of our pilots.  Not just a few pilots.  A lot of pilots and a lot of damage.  The cardiac harm of course is not limited to pilots.  My best guess right now is that over 50M Americans sustained some amount of heart damage from the shot.

Covid-19 Drugmakers Pressured Twitter to Censor Activists Pushing for Generic Vaccine.  In Mid-December 2020, Nina Morschhaeuser, a lobbyist for Twitter in Europe, emailed colleagues with a dire warning.  The drugmaker BioNTech, along with the German government, had contacted her with news of an imminent "campaign targeting the pharmaceutical companies developing the COVID-19 vaccine," she wrote.  "The authorities are warning about 'serious consequences' of the action, i.e. posts and a flood of comments 'that may violate TOS' as well as the 'takeover of user accounts' are to be expected," wrote Morschhaeuser.  "Especially the personal accounts of the management of the vaccine manufacturers are said to be targeted.  Accordingly, fake accounts could also be set up."  The campaign they were concerned about was the launch of an international push to force the drug industry to share the intellectual property and patents associated with coronavirus vaccine development.  Making the patents available, in turn, would allow countries across the world to swiftly manufacture generic vaccines and other low-cost therapeutics to deal with the ongoing pandemic.

Biden Wants It Both Ways On COVID — But Either Way, Taxpayers Get Screwed.  Last week, the Biden administration once again extended the COVID public health emergency, the 12th time it's been extended in the past three years.  Just weeks before, however, team Biden told the Supreme Court that there is no COVID emergency, and there hasn't been one since last April.  Why the two diametrically opposed positions?  Simple.  Extending the public health emergency declaration lets Joe Biden keep millions of recipients on Medicaid and continue his student loan bailout.  Claiming that COVID isn't an emergency will open the floodgates to illegal immigrants.  Notice the connective tissue?  It's about expanding government dependency — for health care, for college aid, or for illegals getting on welfare.  Who loses?  You.  And anyone else who pays taxes.

New Twitter Files reveal pharmaceutical industry lobbied social media over COVID vaccine content.  Investigative journalist Lee Fang unveiled the latest edition of the Twitter Files on Monday, showcasing how "the pharmaceutical industry lobbied social media to shape content" related to the COVID vaccine.  "The push included direct pressure from Pfizer partner BioNTech to censor activists demanding low-cost generic vaccines for low-income countries," Fang wrote.  Twitter owner Elon Musk has been vocal about transparency when it comes to Twitter's past and present actions curating content on the platform, including censored content.  He has enlisted independent journalists to slowly release evidence of these actions in a series dubbed the "Twitter Files" that continue to expose once-secret communications.

In 2009, Dr. Rima Laibow exposed how The WHO will use forced vaccination to cull the population.  In 2002 Dr. Rima Laibow, wife of US General Stubblebine, was informed by one of her patients, a head of state, of the Covid pandemic and poisoned vaccines.  He told her: "It's almost time for the great culling of the useless eaters..."  She demonstrated how a long swab would be inserted in the nasal passage to collect an olfactory sample, an area normally protected from foreign interference and invasion of the cribriform plate.  When filmmaker and former State Governor Jesse Ventura interviewed her on "Conspiracy Theory", aired in 2009, she warned that governments would announce a global pandemic and 90% of the human population will be culled... the real threat and means of death would be the vaccine.  [Video clip]

What happens when you write to your elected representatives over the COVID vaccine issue.  Since as early as December 2021, American Thinker has published article after article about COVID vaccine-related health issues.  The first article that grabbed my attention was written by Vasko Kohlmayer, VAERS Data Indicates the Covid Vaccines Have Killed At Least 140,000 People.  Since then, at least 65 articles from professionals, including doctors, have been published on American Thinker, some of them with exhaustive research. [...] So, not knowing what to do or how to vent my frustration I decided to write my federal and state representatives in North Carolina where I live:  Sen. Thom Tillis, Sen. Richard Burr, Rep. Richard Hudson, state Sen. Tom McInnis, and state Rep. Jamie Boles.  I asked them why our state and federal health care systems continue to push COVID vaccines and boosters with all the negative information coming to light.  I only received two responses.  I got a generic response from Richard Hudson and his family, and a professional deflection from Thom Tillis.

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Masks, and the Deadly Falsehoods Surrounding Them.  [P]owerful government officials and big tech executives have corrupted or suppressed the central scientific facts about face masks.  The impacts of this extend far beyond the issue of masks and have caused widespread harm and countless deaths.  Despite the fog of contradictory claims and changing government guidelines, dozens of scientific journals have published consistent data that establish these facts:
  •   Covid-19 is mainly spread by microscopic aerosols generated by breathing, talking, sneezing, and coughing.  The vast bulk of these infectious aerosols easily penetrate common masks because 90% of the aerosols are less than 1/17th the size of pores in the finest surgical masks, and less than 1/80th the size of pores in the finest cloth masks.
  •   Aerosols are light enough to stay airborne for minutes or hours, and hence, they also travel freely through gaps around the edges of cloth and surgical masks.
  •   Governments enacted mask mandates based on the false assumption that C-19 is mainly transmitted by large droplets generated by coughing, sneezing, and spittle.  These droplets are bigger than the pore sizes of most masks and only remain airborne for a few seconds after they are emitted.
  •   For more than a year, the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention denied and downplayed the threat of aerosol transmission while issuing guidelines that don't amply prevent it.  This enabled C-19 to decimate the most vulnerable members of society, like those in hospitals and nursing homes.
  •   The CDC and WHO quietly admitted in the spring of 2021 that aerosols pose a major threat of transmission but have still not adequately updated their guidelines to reflect this reality.  This has allowed countless preventable deaths to continue.
  •   The risk of aerosol transmission can be greatly reduced by disinfecting air with ultraviolet (UV) light, which is part of the energy spectrum emitted by the sun.  This simple and safe technology neutralizes airborne microbes and has been successfully used to control the spread of contagious respiratory diseases for more than 80 years.
  •   Randomized controlled trials — which are the "gold standard" for clinical research — have repeatedly measured the effects of masks on preventing the spread of contagious respiratory diseases.  These trials have found inconsistent benefits from N95 masks in healthcare settings and no statistically significant benefits from any type of mask in community settings.
  •   The only randomized controlled trial that evaluated cloth masks found that mandating them causes significant disease transmission in high-risk healthcare settings.  Observational studies — which are a weaker form of evidence than randomized controlled trials — find that masking schoolchildren provides negligible or no benefits.

The COVID-19 Debate and Conversation We Were Denied.  One aspect, now brutally obvious and anger inducing, is connected to the Twitter File revelations about how various government interests and the medical establishment were intentionally censoring anyone who questioned the early vaccine narrative.  There was never an open debate, a public conversation about the vaccine itself, where the public and counter voices in the medical field could discuss the various vaccine protocols.  Instead, there was the opposite; an intentional effort to shut down any conversation, shut out any person in opposition to the narrative, and destroy any professional voice who might raise concerns.  Throughout 2020, 2021 and deep into 2022, all of the major social media and public forum discussion platforms followed the same censorship, moderation and control protocol.  With great deliberateness I am saying that issue is percolating in the background right now — like a powder keg in search of a spark.  I suspect the people in power do not want this conversation even today because there is a deep tremoring sense recognized underneath the issue, and no one in power wants to be anywhere near the eruption if the conversation were suddenly to break out.

So, You Did Not Take the COVID-19 Shot, Why Not?  [Scroll down]  I did not take the jab.  Why?  Because in the preceding years of all my research into the rapidly exposed corruption of our government, there was just no way [...] I was going to trust that same system.  A system that literally was working outside the constitution and legal framework of our nation to destroy a sitting U.S. President is going to suddenly care about my health.  Nope, it did not align.  I also looked at the datapoint of the U.S.S. Comfort delivered to New York City under the grandest of media proclamations about impending medical doom, only to see the ship sit empty and completely unused despite the scale of the narrative that surround its purpose.  Lastly, and more obliquely, the datapoint of one of my heroes Franklin Graham assembling a NY field hospital to serve over 20,000 patients; another massive endeavor that sat empty and without use.  However, prior to the hindsight, it was the in-real-time fight from officials in/around the area who tried to block Samaritans Purse from setting up the facility.  If the SARS-CoV-2 issue was as great a threat as declared, then why would anyone fight to keep out a field hospital that could provide such relief.  It just didn't make sense.

Covid Vaccines Are "Obviously Dangerous" and Should Be Halted Immediately, Say Senior Swedish Doctors.  The true character and scope of the harm caused by the unprecedented mass vaccinations for COVID-19 is just now beginning to become clear.  Leading scientific journals have finally begun publishing data corroborating what the underground research community has observed over the last two years, especially in relation to complex problems of immune suppression.  Truly concerning numbers pertaining to both births and mortality are also emerging.  At this moment in time, a new, allegedly super-infectious Omicron variant is all over the headlines.  A sub-variant of XXB, this strain is said to possess immune escape capabilities of precisely the type that some independent researchers predicted would follow on the heels of the mass vaccinations' narrow antigenic fixation.  The WHO maintains that worldwide, 10,000 people still die due to Covid every single day, an implausible death toll more than ten times that of an average flu.  It reiterates the urgent need for vaccinations, especially in light of China's reopening and allegedly falsified data on mortality and infections.

About those overcounted COVID-19 deaths....  The media, especially the social media, say they are very strict about reporting misinformation but that is a lie.  They willingly repeat talking points to push agenda, whether it is about Russian collusion, climate change, or COVID without asking questions when they are pushing an agenda.  They are essentially propagandists.  Their COVID death overcounting is one of the best examples of it, they used those overcounted numbers as a cudgel against President Trump.  Now they've changed their story.

Washington Fire Captain Dies Suddenly at 46, Found Dead in Bed: 'Completely Unexpected'.  A Clallam County, Washington fire captain has died suddenly at just 46 years old, according to reports.  Charles "Chad" Cate was found dead in his bunk bed by fellow firefighters at the station at around 7:00 am on Thursday morning.  Callam County Fire District 3 said in a press release that Cate's death was "completely unexpected."

The Latest Young People To "Die Suddenly".  While Lisa Marie Presley may not be considered young, she was definitely in the spotlight late this week when she was rushed to the hospital in cardiac arrest.  On Friday, we learned she had succumbed to her heart attacks and still there are those that won't even question whether she had the experimental COVID shots and those had the prescribed effect intended.  However, there are many ordinary young people aged in their 20s to 40s who have lost their lives and still, self-professed journalists in the Mockingbird media would rather and label people with honest questions about their deaths who question the role of the shot in their deaths as "conspiracy theorists."  Here's three people, among dozens if not hundreds or thousands, this week that died suddenly and their deaths may have ultimately resulted from taking the COVID shot.

China: 60,000 COVID-19 deaths in one month according to health authorities.  China announced on Saturday it has seen at least 60,000 deaths linked to the COVID-19 pandemic since the country lifted health restrictions a month ago.  "A total of 59,938 (deaths) were recorded between December 8, 2022 and January 12, 2023," health authority official Jiao Yahui told reporters.  This report does not take into account deaths recorded outside hospitals and other medical facilities.

Unvaccinated military members still facing repercussions despite rescinded COVID-19 mandate.  Despite the Department of Defense rescinding the COVID-19 vaccine mandate, unvaccinated military members are still facing repercussions, including denied benefits, ineligibility for promotion, being non-deployable, and potentially diminished employment prospects for those already discharged.  On Dec. 23, President Biden signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the $858 billion defense spending bill that included a measure repealing the mandate.  On Dec. 29, the Defense Department followed suit, rescinding the mandate that has frayed military morale and resulted in the discharge of over 8,000 service members who refused the vaccine.  In rescinding the vaccine mandate, the DOD acknowledged the NDAA requires Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to rescind his Aug. 24, 2021 memo issuing the sweeping order.

18-Year-Old Rugby League 'Star of the Future' Dies Suddenly.  This was already getting ridiculous a year ago.  At this point it's becoming so common to see young and otherwise healthy people dying that it would become a cliché if the topic weren't so morbid.  Another young athlete has died. [...] As is always the case, there is no mention of Covid-19 or the "vaccines" in any corporate media discussions about this story.  It's the elephant in the journalistic room that is so disgusting that we're forced to report on every incident as if it's the first.  Unfortunately, this isn't the first and it's not going to be the last.  People suddenly collapsing, especially athletes and others who are engaged in physical activity, are becoming more common than they were just a couple of months ago, and it was really bad back then.  It is imperative that our readers share stories like these.  Yes, you will likely get attacked, but the word needs to get out to the normies.  Don't think just because you're fully aware of it happening that your peers are as well.  If they're getting their news from CNN or Fox News, they have no idea just how widespread the phenomenon has become.

Colorado College tennis player Jack Madison, 20, has died, school says.  Jack Madison, a sophomore on the Colorado College men's tennis team, died in his sleep Jan. 2, the school announced.  Madison was 20 years old.  The cause of death has not been announced.  "We are devastated by the tragic passing of Jack Madison," CC vice president and director of athletics Lesley Irvine said in a statement.  Madison was recruited to Colorado Springs out of Bexley, Ohio, where he was a two-time all-state selection at Columbus Academy.

CDC puts out safety warning about COVID bivalent booster.  The CDC just put out a safety warning about the Pfizer COVID bivalent booster.  It appears that it may be causing strokes.  [Tweet]  Safety signals do not indicate proof that vaccines are causing a problem, but they are evidence that there is a possible correlation between the events and the vaccine.  It is interesting to note that the events in question are ischemic strokes.  Ischemic strokes are caused by a loss of blood flow to parts of the brain, so they are a vascular phenomenon, suggesting that ischemic events could clearly be happening in other parts of the body.  Like the heart.

All Charges Dropped Against Hospital Guards Who Killed A Woman For Not Wearing A Mask During COVID Madness.  Charges against two Toronto hospital security guards in the death of a patient will never be tested in front of a jury after a recent decision, blindsiding her sister, who has been fighting for justice in the case.  But the video, which was to be crucial evidence in the manslaughter and criminal negligence case in the death of Stephanie Warriner, shows the public what the jury will never see.  Video footage obtained by CTV News Toronto shows bits and pieces of the altercation between 43-year-old Stephanie Warriner, and security guards Amanda Rojas-Silva and Shane Hutley on May 11, 2020, at Toronto General Hospital.  [Video clip]

Leana Wen: We're overcounting COVID deaths now.  Leana Wen has led several lives in the media over the past couple of years.  She was a leading COVID hawk back in 2021 who compared going out in public without being vaccinated to drunk driving.  But almost as quickly she angered the left this year for turning on mask mandates and other restrictions with statements like this.  [Tweet] [...] In August she wrote a column explaining why here kids wouldn't be wearing masks in school this year.  Today, Wen has a new piece at the Post arguing that we're currently overcounting COVID deaths and that isn't very helpful for helping people estimate the real danger of the disease at this point.

A Revolution in the Minds of the People.  I have a guttural revulsion to one-world-government types who seek to rule the world by turning domestic populations against themselves.  "Divide and conquer" is the only strategy they know, and oppression disguised as altruism is the only outcome they bring. [...] They hyperventilate over COVID variants today not because they seek to save lives, but because they seek to monitor and manipulate every movement of every life from here on out.  Just this week, the World Health Organization is putting the finishing touches on a set of amendments to its International Health Regulations that seek to further weaken American sovereignty and empower bureaucrats in faraway, foreign offices to bully ordinary Americans in the name of "health." [...] Tyranny always comes in the form of false benevolence in which those who profess to be doing the most good are actually orchestrating deep and costly harm.  It should be no surprise that totalitarianism today arrives under the guise of medical authority.

Like Paul Revere, a Massachusetts Republican Sends Warning.  [Scroll down] How do progressives govern?  During the COVID debacle, we got a good look at progressive blue state governors and then a progressive president in action.  They govern like absolute monarchs, decreeing mask mandates, vaccine mandates, and destructive lockdowns.  They abusively utilize 'emergency powers' that have no end date.  They impose unconstitutional executive orders that bypass legislative approval.

COVID: Who Was Right?  It's now been three years since COVID hit.  At the start of the pandemic, "experts" shouted:  "Stay home!"  "Close schools!"  "Wash your hands!"  "Disinfect countertops!"  Clearly, disinfecting countertops and washing hands made no difference.  What about closing schools and lockdowns?  The media trashed Gov. Ron DeSantis when he lifted Florida's lockdown.  "Acting irresponsibly!" roared MSNBC's Dr. Vin Gupta.  Reporters praised New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's lockdowns.  On CNN, Andrew's brother Chris gushed, "I am wowed by what you did!"  By contrast, he said, Florida was "in such dire straits."  But actually, adjusted for population, Florida and New York had about the same number of deaths.  Given that Florida has more old people, Florida did better than New York.  Much of the media just reports what it wants to believe.

What is REALLY going on in hospitals?  Today, I drove to my local hospital, El Camino Hospital, in Mountain View.  I asked where the COVID ward was.  They refused to tell me. [...] So if you work in a hospital and know what is going on in the COVID ward, Please fill out my survey  [Link]  and let's create a little transparency.  Specifically, I ask questions like:
  [#1]   Is there still an emergency?
  [#2]   Are the hospitals full of COVID patients or empty?
  [#3]   What's the ratio of vax/unvaxxed in the clinic vs. ICU vs. dead?
  [#4]   How many people are dying from COVID a day in the hospital?
  [#5]   Are vaccinated people doing uniformly better, worse, or about the same as the unvaccinated patients?
  [#6]   Do people who have more vaccines doing uniformly better, worse, or about the same as people with fewer vaccines?
[...] You can find the results here.  You were right.  They lied.  Key results:
  [#1]   Hospital COVID wards are empty
  [#2]   Emergency is not justified
  [#3]   Vaxed doing worse than unvaxxed (only 10% disagree)
  [#4]   More boosters ---> worse outcomes (only 1% disagree)

We Must Have The Truth.  On April 2, 2020, a paddle boarder was chased by authorities and taken into custody.  This event should have caused unanimous outrage over the absurdity of what happened — law enforcement arrested a lone paddle boarder on Santa Monica Bay for the crime of "flouting coronavirus closures."  Traditional voices that could have questioned unscientific authoritarian policy instead provided cover.  The Los Angeles Times justified law enforcement's ridiculous response by quoting a scientist who made the claim (presumably with a straight face): "...[SARS-CoV-2] could enter coastal waters and transfer back into the air."  Setting aside the absurdity of this and every other justification for closing beaches, hiking trails, and parks, think of the narrative it perpetuated — the virus is so insidious that even those who dared to paddle board alone on the ocean might somehow spread it to the rest of us.  The paddler's arrest was an early indication that something had changed in our country.  A "new normal" was spawning from the chaotic, unscientific, politicized pandemic messaging mainly coming from biased news media and the once venerable Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Dr. Anthony Fauci.  The result was bitter contempt between two sides of the COVID-19 debate that metastasized into a deep distrust for science.

The 'Final' Short-Term Word on COVID.  The Biden administration has just extended its COVID scam, the "emperor's new clothes," by renewing the declaration of Public Health Emergency.  A recent poll shows that 52 percent of Americans still think the U.S. is in grave danger from COVID.  Is that true?  Was it ever?  Is Washington's COVID narrative and response plan good medical science?  The word "science" has been turned on its head by Washington.  When Dr. Fauci proclaims, "I represent science"; when Twitter cancels Dr. Robert Malone; and when an academic journal censors a vaccine safety study, they subvert true science.  When one applies the scientific method to data about COVID, vaccines, and Washington mandates, one conclusion is inescapable.  Everything Washington said and did was wrong and unscientific.  The title includes "short-term" because there are no long-term or even moderate term data on outcomes:  efficacy and adverse impacts.  Though that is public health malpractice, it did not stop Washington from promulgating numerous medically improper, socially devastating mandates and advisories.

CDC Investigating 'Safety Concern' Linked to Pfizer Covid Vaccine.  The CDC announced Friday that it is investigating a "safety concern" linked to the use of the updated Pfizer Covid vaccine booster in seniors. "Following the availability and use of the updated (bivalent) COVID-19 vaccines, CDC's Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD), a near real-time surveillance system, met the statistical criteria to prompt additional investigation into whether there was a safety concern for ischemic stroke in people ages 65 and older who received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent," the agency said in a statement.  The CDC's vaccine safety monitoring system detected the early signal in the bivalent booster, which is designed to inoculate against the original strain of the disease as well as omicron sub variants.  An ischemic stroke happens when a blood clot prevents blood from passing through the arteries to the brain.

What Moderna Forgot to Tell Us About Their COVID Vaccine.  The more we learn about these COVID vaccines, the more I sort of regret getting the vaccine.  I already survived the virus pre-vaccine, but still got vaccinated and boosted.  I'm shocked that I haven't had a cardiac event, given how scores of young people are "dying suddenly."  I'll have more about that later, but the death rates for young Americans have spiked, and there may be some inquiries into how these vaccines might be a factor.  Today, we're going to piggyback off something our friends at RedState touched upon concerning Moderna not being forthcoming about some data about the vaccine.  Information about the reinfection rate was buried, and an FDA panel member is not too pleased about that development. [...] And let's not forget that these pharmaceutical companies have full immunity from legal action.  These companies can get a legal shield, but there shouldn't be the same protections for the gun industry which has enemies at the gates looking to litigate them into extinction.  They didn't disclose all the data over money and for the sheer fact that no legal fallout could ever occur.  I'm sadly not shocked there was a failure to disclose all the data before the political class, Fauci, and the Democrats forced this down our throats by threatening our employment.

With all the evidence of mRNA vaccine injury, why aren't more doctors speaking out?  [Scroll down]  Very early on, I was skeptical of these new treatments.  I graduated college with a B.S. in Biology more than 25 years ago, but my career is in finance (long story), so I understood enough about the scientific process that I was doubtful of their proclaimed "safety."  Long term safety at that point (and still now) literally could not have been known.  It was far too early.  I researched them and quickly found people like Dr. Simone Gold (America's Frontline Doctors) and Dr. Peter McCullough:  individuals who were willing to risk their careers and reputations to get the message out that maybe we needed to slow down and learn more about the new vaccines.  To me, that was powerful, and rang very true.  I knew very early that I would not be getting any of the shots, and I warned others to give them very careful consideration.  How did Dr. Malhotra and so many others — thousands of others! — miss something that even a layperson strongly suspected?  How did they not ask more questions?

The Scariest Developments to Watch Out For in 2023.  China appears to have ended its zero-COVID policy for economic reasons.  Now COVID is out of control in the Middle Kingdom, which will lead to other complications, such as pneumonia.  Since the Chinese communists do not like to be embarrassed, if China is suffering, they may want everyone else to suffer, too.  That seems to coincide with reports that roughly half of the airline passengers from China have tested positive for COVID.  They caused a pandemic once.  Why not twice?  Supply chains are a second issue.  Who will make the products we normally buy if Chinese workers are sick?  Yes, I know this sounds like a "who cares" thing.  But if they are not shipping parts, our factories will grind to a halt.  Naturally, these two problems overlap.  Due to a rash of lawsuits in the 1990s, pharmaceutical companies moved their manufacturing facilities to China.  Now China makes most of our antibiotics.  If Chinese workers are sick and using the antibiotics they usually produce, there may be little left to export.

American Airlines cuts flights due to covid jab-induced pilot shortage.  Numerous flight routes will be canceled this spring at American Airlines (AA) due to a major shortage of pilots, all of whom were required to get "vaccinated" for covid.  In a statement to Fox Business, AA revealed that "in response to the pilot shortage affecting the airline industry, American Airlines has made the difficult decision to end service in Columbus, Georgia (CSG), Del Rio, Texas (DRT) and Long Beach, California (LGB) this spring."  The announcement comes on the heels of continued reports about pilots suffering fatal heart attacks, oftentimes mid-flight, resulting in their no longer being available to fly the company's airplanes.  Many suspect, based on a growing body of evidence, that all these pilot deaths are a direct result of Operation Warp Speed, which was foisted on the world at the end of 2020.

'Biggest crime since Holocaust': British MP suspended over COVID vaccine comments.  A British politician has been censured by his party for comparing the UK's COVID-19 vaccine rollout to the Holocaust.  Andrew Bridgen, a Conservative MP from Leicestershire, posted a website link to Twitter on Tuesday morning which purports to show evidence that COVID vaccines are more dangerous than healthcare officials or the government had previously said.  "As one consultant cardiologist said to me this is the biggest crime against humanity since the holocaust (sic)," wrote Bridgen, a pro-Brexit politician first elected to parliament in 2010.

CDC Finally Releases VAERS Safety Monitoring Analyses For COVID Vaccines.  Like me, you might be wondering why the CDC waited over 15 months before doing its first safety signal analysis of VAERS, despite having said in a document posted to its website that it would begin in early 2021 — especially since VAERS is touted as our early warning vaccine safety system.  You might also wonder how they could insist all the while that the COVID-19 vaccines are being subjected to the most rigorous safety monitoring the world has ever known.

Fleetwood: No, Young Athletes Suddenly Collapsing From Heart Problems Is Not Normal.  "Within the past few days, you had a 16-year-old girl in Nevada playing flag football just drop dead from a cardio-related health problem. ... It's almost impossible to ignore what's happening," said Federalist Staff Writer Shawn Fleetwood during an interview on Salem News.  "It's amazing how the same people who told us not to question the lockdowns, the mask mandates, [and] vaccine mandates are now telling us that we can't even ask questions about Damar Hamlin or these other young athletes that are just dropping from heart-related issues."  [Video clip]

California's 'Misinformation' Law Targets 'Doctor Zero'.  A new and unconstitutional, Orwellian gag-order law took effect on Jan. 1.  Titled "Physicians and surgeons: unprofessional conduct," the law permits the Medical Board of California to discipline doctors who "disseminate" misinformation.  It's an obvious and direct attack on the First Amendment — freedom of speech — as well as the Fifth Amendment, which says an individual cannot be compelled by the government to provide incriminating information about himself, and the Fourteenth Amendment's equal protection under the laws.  This law attempts to mandate a new and undefined standard known as "contemporary scientific consensus" and illegally suppress differing professional opinions counter to this consensus on COVID-19.  Differing professional opinions are of course protected from governmental interference and censorship by the First Amendment.  The importance of differing professional opinions is also enshrined in the practice of medicine by the longstanding right and traditional entitlement of patients to the time-honored "second opinion."  If everyone were forced to adopt the undefinable "contemporary scientific consensus," second opinions could be deemed to be "misinformation."

Explosive Increase in Cardiac Symptoms After Second Injection.  I have said on national TV throughout the COVID-19 vaccine campaign that no young person should receive a shot because the risks far outweigh the benefits.  Chiu et al published a report where both cardiac symptoms and ECG changes were recorded after the first and second injections.  The results are alarming.  After the second injection of mRNA 17.1% of students reported cardiovascular symptoms.

CNN and Paul Offit seek shelter in a Limited Hangout.  My favorite broadcaster, CNN, the television broadcast arm of the US Administrative State, seems to be seeking some sort of shelter from the coming storm of data and public awakening to the shocking reality of what has been done to them by federal genetic vaccine propaganda, coercion, mandates, bungled policies and stacked layers of COVIDcrisis lies.  Surprisingly this new revelation is not being peddled by the Neurosurgeon Sanjay Gupta, who (like some cardio-renal specialists) seems to have found a new career as an immunologist and vaccine expert. [...] Well, actually, you can read my prior sworn testimony to the Texas State Senate which predicted that the booster jabs were about the worst possible design that I could imagine, unless you were trying to make people more likely to get infected and develop disease (or death) from their infection.  Based on multiple high-profile publications from top universities, all of which were somehow completely overlooked by FDA and CDC.

Attention Please, COVID Is Not Over.  Well, for most of us it is, but not for the Biden administration.  Because, well, reasons.  On Wednesday, HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra announced that the COVID-19 state of emergency has been extended another 90 days in the declaration "Renewal of Determination that a Public Health Emergency Exists." [...] I am sure that for the chronic masker and vax fan in your life, this is welcome news.  But since the pandemic is tied directly to keeping Title 42 in place, which is something the president and DHS are both eager to be rid of, one wonders why the announcement was made this week.  And while the news out of China is grave and people continue to contract the disease in the U.S., Americans by and large have learned how to live with the idea of COVID-19, and the disease is no longer the infectious boogeyman it once was.  The administration has continued to push vaccination, despite evidence that the vaccines came with serious complications for some and were not effective in preventing the spread of the virus, as were most masks.

Moderna CEO Announces New mRNA Shot for Heart Failure Patients to Help "Grow Back New Blood Vessels".  Stéphane Bancel, CEO of Moderna, announced the development of a new mRNA shot to treat patients suffering from heart failure.  In a statement released on Monday, the pharmaceutical company said it currently has 48 programs in development, including 36 programs that are currently being tested in clinical trials.  These programs include mRNA infectious disease vaccines and mRNA therapeutics that span seven different modalities.  "We enter 2023 in a great position, with significant momentum across our clinical pipeline, a highly energized team and a strong balance sheet of over $18 billion of cash and cash equivalents," said Stéphane Bancel, Chief Executive Officer of Moderna.

Pfizer drops $1 million on Big Pharma delegate Chinless Mitch.  Boy oh boy does this stink, and it's a story that cruised relatively under the radar.  According to reporter Tom Loftus writing for the Kentucky Lantern, Pfizer "donated" a whopping one million dollars last month to the Republican Party of Kentucky Building Fund; to put that into perspective, the same fund only raised $6,000 in the first three quarters. [...] The pharmaceutical giant "donated" the money?  Yeah, right.  Seems more plausible that Pfizer took a cue from BlackRock's Laurence Fink and bought the Kentucky turncoat's political favor — Fink recently gifted Zelensky with "pro bono" advice on how to implement a "special patronage" system in Ukraine which currently sees municipalities, buildings, really whatever, auctioned off to the highest bidder.  Or, perhaps it was payment for McConnell's rabidly aggressive push in favor of the Covid-19 vaccine?

Musk Exposes Fauci.  Elon Musk is transforming Twitter from a government censorship bureau into a powerhouse of investigative journalism.  The Biden Junta doesn't like it.  Musk's tweet of "My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci" drew a furious reaction from White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who said criticizing Dr. Fauci was "dangerous," "disgusting" and "divorced from reality."  Musk didn't think so, and started digging deeper.  On December 28, Musk tweeted, "Almost no one seems to realize that the head of bioethics at NIH — the person who is supposed to make sure that Fauci behaves ethically — is his wife."  That would be National Institutes of Health bioethics boss Christine Grady.  Musk's tweet caught the attention of Bruce Y. Lee, a Professor of Health Policy and Management at the City University of New York (CUNY) School of Public Health and a staunch defender of Dr. Fauci as a "real scientist."

Doctors who pushed masks, lockdowns 'don't even exist'.  As Americans and citizens across the world were bombarded with messages promoting lockdowns, masks and social distancing during the COVID pandemic, it turns out some doctors endorsing those control measures did not even exist, being part of a "network" of fake Twitter accounts, according to a stunning report.  The San Francisco Standard revealed how a number of physicians in the LGBT community pushing the government narratives and blasting those who questioned official advice were actually electronic bots.  Its report focused on the account of Dr. Robert Honeyman, who described himself on Twitter as a "Doctor of Sociology and Feminist studies" and whose profile photo was merely a royalty-free stock image.

Air Force Football Star Suddenly Collapses On His Way To Dorm, Dies At Age 21.  Another young, healthy male athlete has suddenly collapsed and died in a phenomenon that is becoming increasingly common in the last two years.  Hunter Brown, a sophomore Center for the Air Force football team, died at the age of 21 on his way to his dorm after suddenly collapsing.  Brown's death comes just over a week after Bills Safety Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest during a Prime Time Monday night game between the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals.

Teen Basketball Player Had Blood Clots in Brain, Now There's Another.  In the spring of 2021, Everest Romney had a bright future.  The 6-foot-9 sophomore played on Corner Canyon High School's basketball team in Draper, Utah.  The 17-year-old told a TV interviewer he had high hopes for getting a scholarship to play college basketball.  Then, on April 21 of that year, he got the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination.  By that evening, Everest was feeling neck pain and swelling.  Within days, he developed "extreme migraines," KSL-TV reported in May 10, 2021.  Cherie Romney said her son had been "100 percent healthy" up until then, KSL reported.

Wolves in Expert's Clothing.  Early in the COVID pandemic, I wrote an article at RedState regarding the dangers of experts who "cry wolf."  My point was that there is a measurable harm that flows from respected "experts" (in any field, but particularly science and medicine) losing their objectivity and becoming activists, pushing a partisan agenda.  They may justify it to themselves, but what they're ultimately doing is undercutting the very faith they request (and sometimes demand) others place in them.  Which is exactly what many of the experts who weighed in on COVID have done.  In the media and social media, the preferred narratives developed quickly — typically whatever contradicted President Trump.  Rather than being guided by science, we were ruled by ideological acrimony, and we continue to pay the price for that.

Biden administration extends COVID-19 public health emergency yet again.  The White House's Department of Health and Human Services has extended the COVID-19 state of emergency.  HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra announced the decision Wednesday via a declaration titled, "Renewal of Determination that a Public Health Emergency Exists." [...] President Biden said during a television interview in September 2022 that the COVID-19 pandemic "is over."  "Is the pandemic over?," a reporter asked Biden.  "The pandemic is over.  We still have a problem with COVID.  We're still doing a lot of work on it," Biden responded.

Pentagon ditches COVID vaccine mandate for troops.  The Pentagon is formally dropping a controversial COVID-19 vaccine mandate for troops, according to a memo from Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.  President Joe Biden signed a defense policy bill just before Christmas that included a provision cleared by the House and the Senate to repeal the administration's military vaccine mandate.  The National Defense Authorization Act terminated the COVID-19 vaccine for military members but did not reinstate those who were discharged or had their benefits cut for refusing the vaccine.  Reinstatement has become a priority for some Republicans who said the strict mandate is among the reasons why military recruitment is at an all-time low.

YouTube Censors Doctors, Heritage Foundation Expert for 'Medical Misinformation' on COVID-19.  Nearly three years after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and just after President Joe Biden effectively claimed the pandemic is over by trying to reverse Title 42, YouTube removed footage of a panel involving doctors and a Heritage Foundation expert discussing COVID-19 and restrictions imposed on religious liberty in the name of public health.  One speaker on the panel told The Daily Signal that this Big Tech censorship proved his point about suppression of freedoms during the pandemic, and he condemned YouTube's move as "Kafkaesque."

Newly Released Files Show Pfizer Shill And FDA Boss Scott Gottlieb Pushed Twitter To Censor Critics.  The latest Twitter Files involving the tech giant's response to the pandemic puts a focus on Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a former FDA commissioner and sitting board member of prominent COVID vaccine manufacturer Pfizer.  Alex Berenson, a vocal COVID contrarian whose past commentary on the vaccine has received scorn by critics and praise by fans, was the latest to be granted access to Elon Musk's Twitter Files, publishing his findings on his "Unreported Truths" Substack newsletter.  Berenson shared an August 2021 email Gottlieb sent to Twitter's senior public policy manager Todd O'Boyle flagging a tweet written by former Trump administration official Dr. Brett Giroir, who had written "It's now clear #COVID19 natural immunity is superior to #vaccine immunity, by A LOT.  There's no scientific justification for #vax proof if a person had prior infection."  [Video clip]

Twitter Files: Pfizer Board Member Dr. Scott Gottlieb Pressured Company to Censor Donald Trump's FDA Commissioner.  New internal emails released via the Twitter Files reveal that Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a member of the board of directors of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and former FDA commissioner, colluded with a top White House lobbyist to pressure Twitter to suppress a tweet from Dr. Brett Giroir, acting commissioner of the FDA under Donald Trump.  The emails were released through journalist and coronavirus policy skeptic Alex Berenson, who posted the findings on his newsletter, Unreported Truths.

How much did taxpayers pay Fallon?  A year ago, as Americans returned from the Christmas holidays last week, NPR reported, "Late-night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers test positive for COVID-19."  That's interesting.  They both work for Comcast's NBC.  These late-might hosts keep taking all these precautions against covid.  These late-night hosts keep mocking those who don't get vaccinated.  And these late-night hosts keep getting covid. [...] The covid vaccine does not seem to work like other vaccines.  I was vaccinated for smallpox more than 60 years ago.  I never got smallpox, not even a mild case.  In fact, no one in the United States has had smallpox since 1949.  My polio vaccination (via a sugar cube) also never resulted in a mild case of polio for me, thank God.  I had the measles, German measles, mumps and chickenpox as a kid.  I never got them again.  Back in those days we had to rely on natural immunity.  In my case, it worked.  I also got the covid vaccine and never got covid, so I am not saying don't get vaccinated.  All I ever said was you do you.  I also oppose mandating one because it is experimental.  Also, I am not saying Meyers and Fallon are lying about getting covid, but I am just saying there are no coincidences in politics.  These two are politicians, not comedians.

Where are the Intellectually Curious Doctors?  Medicine, like most sciences, entails thinking and hypothesis creation to explain the myriad complexities of the healthy and diseased human body.  Hypotheses are tested and refined, with new information or insights nudging or abruptly shifting current knowledge in a new direction. [...] What questions should physicians have been asking over the past two years?  Are they staying mum because they believe the science is settled and challenges to the status quo are heresy?  Or are they cowed into silence over fear over losing their ability to practice the profession which they spent a decade learning and from which they earn their living?  Start with the highly touted COVID-19 vaccines.  In the United States, 80% of the population have received one dose and 68% two doses.  Yet almost three years into the pandemic, this recent headline from ABC News suggests that there is no end in sight, "WHO sounds the alarm: New COVID variant is most transmissible yet."  And the Washington Post cautions "COVID hospitalizations rising post-Thanksgiving."  Can we ask why?  Wasn't mass vaccination supposed to prevent this? [...] On their website the CDC states, "COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective."  Dr. Fauci told us, "Vaccinated people essentially become 'dead ends' for the virus to spread within their communities."  Then why is COVID still around and why are many who have had multiple boosters still getting COVID?  Can that be asked?

Killing science when no dissent is allowed.  [Scroll down] If this sounds familiar, consider the parallel with the lab leak theory of the origin of Covid.  The entire country, and most especially virologists, epidemiologists, and doctors, have endured what proponents of the intelligent design theory within academia have experienced for decades.  From the outset of the release of Covid upon the world, any voices that opposed the Faustian Faucian narrative were vilified, censored, their careers threated just as those scientists or journalists who uttered the words intelligent design.  Schools must close, masks must be worn, people must "social distance" from one another, vaccines must be mandated.  None of those things, it turns out, were necessary.  Nor were any of them based on any science, not even the vaccines.  They all parallel a plan laid out in Event 201, a World Economic Forum exercise that took place in October 2019. [...] In California, it is now against the law for physicians to openly defy the state-mandated treatment for Covid.  This intolerance for differing ideas is moving us backwards.  It affects university funding.  This partly explains how wokery has taken over higher education.  For example, a Ph.D. who wants to teach English literature will not be hired if his or her research is not shot through with race, class and gender ideologies.  No philosopher, journalist or scientist who admits to considering intelligent design will get a job.  And no doctor who advocates for ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine and opposes the wholly experimental vaccines will be safe from ruin by government.

Canada's killer doctors love what they do.  For over 2,000 years, the Hippocratic Oath guiding doctors has mandated "First do no harm."  What happens, though, when doctors decide that it harms their patients to let them live? [...] To appreciate the ease of access to euthanasia in Canada, consider this: California and Canada have roughly the same population — just under 40 million — but California, which also legalized doctor-administered death, killed 486 people in 2021, while Canada killed 10,064. [...] "Death by government" is the inevitable end-point of socialized medicine, a government monopoly that leaves little room for innovation that will increase quality while decreasing costs — and the government will always look to cut costs.  The most expedient way to do so is to kill expensive patients.  Remember: Unlike your family, the government does not love you.  To the government, you're a widget with a spreadsheet value.  Once you've stopped contributing to the system, your value craters.

Pfizer Gives $1 Million to Kentucky GOP to Expand Its Headquarters — The "Mitch McConnell Building".  Pfizer donated $1 million to the Kentucky Republican Party in 2021 in what is being called the highest donation to a political party in state history.  The donation will be used to expand the Frankfort Mitch McConnell Building in the state capital.  The donation seems like a perfect fit.  Mitch McConnell has been a staunch supporter of the COVID vaccine and COVID legislation.

Actor Adam Rich Has Died Suddenly, Last Year Boasted Of Being Triple Vaccinated.  Adam Rich — who starred in the hit tv show "Eight is Enough" — has died suddenly at the age of 54.  Rich passed away Saturday in his Los Angeles home.  Someone entered his house and found the TV star lifeless, a family member told TMZ.  Police say no foul play was involved.

Is it illegal to question the safety of the polio vaccine, even if you are right?  This is page 255 in the [June 1,] 1984 Federal Register which says you can't question the safety of the polio vaccine, even if you are correct:  ["]However, although the continued availability of the vaccine may not be in immediate jeopardy, any possible doubts, whether or not well founded, about the safety of the vaccine cannot be allowed to exist in view of the need to assure that the vaccine will continue to be used to the maximum extent consistent with the nation's public health objectives.["]

Those 'ER doctors' on Twitter who claimed hordes of patients were dying from COVID every day were FAKE.  The advent of social media has become the bane of modern society, as it has created a world that literally does not exist, for the most part.  Gone are the days of "MySpace" and the early years of Facebook, when users simply posted status updates, photos from places they visited, recipes, and other things to keep in touch with family and friends.  Today's version of social media exists to foist lies, propaganda, and false narratives on tens of millions of people by the minute, used by government and some in the private sector for non-stop psychological warfare, as Twitter boss Elon Musk has recently revealed with his dumps of "Twitter Files."

The same FDA that threatened doctors with prosecution over Ivermectin use now claims they never opposed it.  Everyone remembers when the Wuhan virus broke bad in America and the FDA, plus every mass media news source, claimed ivermectin was only "horse medicine" for parasites, and was dangerous to use on humans to treat Covid-19.  The narrative coming from Big Pharma, the CDC (Centers for Disease Continuation), and the FDA (Fraudulent Drug Administration) was clear:  wear a bacteria-breeding mask 24/7, get several vascular-clogging "vaccines," and stay away from people (wreck the economy).  Also, when you catch Covid, be sure to rush to a hospital (place to die) for some kidney decimating Remdesivir and a choke-you-to-death-in-less-than-4-days ventilator, but whatever you do, don't take medicine that cures you, because it's just a "veterinary drug" and a "horse dewormer" the FDA says you shouldn't use because it's dangerous for humans.  Sure.  Research reveals ivermectin has been safely prescribed by doctors to HUMANS for 25 years, around the globe, and only 28 cases of adverse events have ever been reported in that time.  Compare that to Big Pharma's drugs, including the deadly Remdesivir, that Fauci and his cohorts pushed on Americans so adamantly.  The irony is that ivermectin can also save people from the deadly spike-protein "vaccines," by impairing the spike protein's ability to attach to human cell membranes and red blood cells, thus helping to prevent blood clots.  Still, the FDA threatened doctors with lawsuits and loss of medical license for prescribing or even just mentioning the use of ivermectin for treating Covid.

Old Dominion Basketball Player Clutches Chest And Collapses Mid-Game.  Another day, yet another athlete collapsing in the midst of a game for unknown reasons.  Just days after Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin had to be administered CPR on the playing field after he collapsed following a play against the Cincinnati Bengals, another athlete has collapsed under what appears to be mysterious circumstances.  Old Dominion basketball player Imo Essien "had to be tended to by training staff from both ODU and Georgia Southern", according to WAVY, after collapsing during the middle of a game this past weekend.

L.A. Times reporter dies unexpectedly at 33.  Los Angeles Times reporter Gregory Yee was found dead in his home this week, the newspaper reported in an obituary of the 33-year-old.  Yee's family told the paper the reporter's cause of death "appeared to be complications from a respiratory issue."  Yee joined times in the summer of 2021, the paper said, where "he covered heat waves and wildfires, gun violence in Oakland and the controversy surrounding robotic police dogs," as well as various other Los Angeles-area stories.  He previously worked for a New Mexico newspaper as well as the Long Beach Press-Telegram the Charleston, S.C. Post and Courier.  Yee is survived by his parents and two sisters.

Two-Year-Old Dies One Day After Getting COVID and Flu Shots.  Yesterday, we reported the alarming results of the CDC's safety signals analysis for the COVID-19 vaccine.  They finally completed the analysis based on VAERS reports from December 14, 2020 [to] July 29, 2022.  A safety signals report is the "nation's early warning system" for vaccines, per the CDC.  Usually, if the safety signals analysis shows unusual patterns, it is run through other systems to test validity.  Systems such as the CDC's Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) and Clinical Immunization Safety Assessment (CISA) Project or the FDA BEST (Biologics Effectiveness and Safety) system serve as a check and confirmation.  The number of serious adverse events reported for mRNA vaccines is 5.5x more than all serious adverse event reports since 2009.  The proportion of deaths (for adults) was 15.4% higher after COVID-19 vaccination vs. 2.5% after traditional vaccines.

The Second Fatality This Week for Suddenly Collapsing, Las Vegas High Schoolers.  On Friday, RedState reported that a 16-year-old high school girl collapsed after a game of flag football at Desert Oasis High School.  Unfortunately, she did not survive.  Now, we learn that this is not the first sudden collapse and cardiac death of a Las Vegas high schooler, but the second this week.  On Tuesday, the first day back from winter break, a male student suffered a similar fatal event in the restroom of a local charter school.  It is thought that while still a public school, the fact of it being outside of the school district garnered less awareness of this tragic event, as there were no statements made from public institutions, which happened in the wake of the previously reported student fatality.

Healthy Teen Dies Suddenly While Playing Flag Football In Las Vegas.  The student — who was later identified by the Clark County Coroner's office as 16-year-old Ashari Hughes — was in the middle of a game when she started experiencing chest problems, a family member told KVVU-TV.  She had gone to the sidelines to rest when she collapsed.  Ian Salzman, the principal of Desert Oasis High School where Hughes attended, said in an email to parents obtained by KLAS-TV that "staff immediately began providing medical aid and continued until paramedics arrived," but she did not survive.  [Video clip]

Ashari Hughes, 16, dies after Desert Oasis High School flag football game.  A 16-year-old girl collapsed and died after suffering a medical emergency during a high school flag football game in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Sophomore Ashari Hughes, 16, who played for Desert Oasis High School, collapsed around 7:30 p.m.  Thursday after a home game against Valley High School, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.  She was hospitalized and died later that night, the paper said.

Jordan Peterson: I will risk my licence to escape social media re-education.  The practice of psychology in Ontario, and in many other North American and western jurisdictions, is subject to regulation by "professional colleges" — essentially governmental organizations with a mandate to protect the public from misconduct on the part of physicians, lawyers, social workers, dentists, pharmacists, teachers, architects and many others, including (and most relevant to me) clinical psychologists.  Anyone anywhere in the world can levy a complaint to these regulatory bodies for any reason, regardless of whether the complainant has had any direct contact with the professional in question.  The respective colleges have the responsibility to determine whether each complaint is serious and credible enough to warrant further investigation.  Complaints can be deemed vexatious or frivolous and dispensed with.  When the college decides to move forward, it is a serious move, essentially equivalent to a lawsuit.

Will Jordan Peterson Lose His License for Wrongthink?  Have you seen the "men will literally do X instead of going to therapy" meme?  [Examples omitted.]  You get the drift.  Canada's most famous public intellectual, Jordan Peterson, brought that meme to real life this week when he announced he'd rather never work again than be forced onto the couch.  I don't blame him.  The College of Psychologists of Ontario has told Peterson that if he doesn't go to therapy — sorry, a board-mandated "Coaching Program" with a board-issued therapist — it may revoke his license to practice psychology.  What warranted this ultimatum?  A few tweets and a podcast.  According to Peterson, about "a dozen people" from around the world complained to the college about comments he had made on Twitter and on Joe Rogan's podcast, claiming that those statements had caused "harm."  In March, the college began investigating these complaints.

The Differential Diagnosis On Damar Hamlin's Broken Heart.  Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin makes a tackle, gets up, and immediately falls down.  Every commentator immediately declares that Hamlin's medical emergency is due to "commotio cordis."  Or so it seems.  Any discussion of the possibility of the COVID vaccine's involvement is "lies." [...] And all those doctors making armchair diagnoses should slow down until they see all of Hamlin's chart.  In particular, they should stop claiming that anyone who implicates the clot shot is spreading misinformation.  I haven't seen Hamlin's chart, so I can't say for certain what caused his cardiac arrest, but I can be responsible and explain what may have happened.  Notice that I said "may," not "did." [...] A closely related possibility is chronic myocarditis from the COVID shot.  This creates a susceptibility to adrenaline, leading to bad heart rhythms.  In fact, it appears that all sudden death incidents, both after COVID and COVID shots, are directly due to surges of adrenaline.

Catecholamines Are the Key Trigger of COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine-Induced Myocarditis.  Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) mRNA vaccine-induced myocarditis is a rare but well-documented complication in young males.  The increased incidence of sudden death among athletes following vaccination has been reported and requires further investigation.  Whether the risk of myocarditis, a known major cause of sudden death in young male athletes, also increases after coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection is unknown.  The severity and implications of these critical adverse effects require a thorough analysis to elucidate their key triggering mechanisms.  The present review aimed to evaluate whether there is a justification to hypothesize that catecholamines in a "hypercatecholaminergic" state are the key trigger of SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccine-induced myocarditis and related outcomes and whether similar risks are also present following COVID-19 infection.

'Did We Win?' Damar Hamlin Communicating With Doctors, Inquired About the Game.  On Thursday, doctors at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center gave an update on the medical condition of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin.  Hamlin is reportedly responsive physically and neurologically and is communicating with doctors via writing since he cannot speak while intubated.  According to reports,┬áHamlin asked doctors, "Did we win?"

The Editor says...
I'm pleasantly surprised that Mr. Hamlin is still alive and thinking.  I thought this guy was near death.  But notice that the news coverage presumes that as soon as he leaves the hospital, or as soon as he can, he will start playing football again.

Massachusetts State Police Release Statement Following the Sudden Death of Three Officers Within Four Days.  On Wednesday, Massachusetts State Police released a statement following the sudden deaths of three officers within four days last December 2022.  Three active-duty Law Enforcement Officers, Officer John F. Santos (25) of The Plymouth County Sheriff's Department, Officer Sean Besarick (48) of the Brockton Police Department, and Officer Christopher A. Davis (42) of the Stoughton Police Department died suddenly last week. [...] It can be recalled that Gov. Charlie Baker mandated the COVID-19 vaccine for Executive Department employees, including police, that took effect in mid-October 2021.  According to the Massachusetts State Police Association, the first union member has been fired for refusing to comply with Governor Charlie Baker's vaccine mandate, CBS reported.  "Thirteen state troopers were fired for failing to comply with Baker's mandate, while a handful who sought medical exemptions are still currently working, McNamara said.  About 1,000 state workers overall were fired or terminated amid a wave of suspensions and disciplinary hearings, in which they were urged to get the shot," Mass Live reported.

German Gov't Claims Investigating Covid Vaccines Would Be 'Dangerous For Democracy'.  An investigation of the government response to the Covid debacle would be "dangerous to democracy", claims German Ethics Chairwoman and government advisor Alena Buyx, who supported mandatory lockdowns, mask orders and vaccinations during the pandemic.  Many have noticed that the most outspoken officials responsible for brutal COVID restrictions and mandates suddenly don't want to talk about the last few years, and are wishing the growing scandal will go away.  Leftist news outlets are even asking for "pandemic amnesty," which would absolve government, Big Pharma and the mainstream media from any legal consequences resulting from their actions.  Not only has the economic and mental health damage been of immense dimensions, but so has the loss of life resulting from the measures, especially the vaccines.  Excess mortality has skyrocketed.

Study Finds That COVID-19 Vaccines Perpetuated the Pandemic & Caused Immune System Failure.  If our country had an honest and competent 'mainstream' media staffed with professionals who took to heart our founders' intent of a free press to hold those in power to account, there would be an outcry for one of the world's biggest pharmaceutical companies to be held responsible for the damage it did to countless millions of people via faulty COVID-19 vaccines.  As reported by Conservative Review's Daniel Horowitz, "Tolerance is a good thing in most aspects of life.  But when it comes to the immune system, artificially juicing up the body to create antibodies with long-term tolerance to a pathogen is a recipe for disaster."

What Dr. Fauci Forgot About Science.  [Scroll down] It is nothing short of hubris for a scientist to cast his/her scientific results as truth.  Just wait 10 years, and someone will come along with better instrumentation and understanding and show you were wrong!  Settled science is a preposterous idea that only politicians hold.  I teach that uncertainty in science is not a bad thing, and if a student thinks otherwise, he (or she) needs to get over it!  True, if your uncertainty, despite your best effort, is too high, your conclusions may be limited, but that's the job.  Live with it.  No, embrace it or sell real estate.  And herein lies my problem with Dr. Fauci.  In so many of his briefings, press conferences, interviews (the guy loves the camera!), and recent books, he has too often implied (or worse, stated) that science is truth, even to the point of asking that we infer that he, himself, is the science.  That meant that any criticism of Fauci was taken to be a rejection of science and, by extension, a rejection of truth.  This is utter nonsense.

The Coup We Never Knew.  Did someone or something seize control of the United States? [...] When did the government pass a law depriving Americans of their freedom during a pandemic?  In America can health officials simply cancel rental contracts or declare loan payments in suspension?  How could it become illegal for mom-and-pop stores to sell flowers or shoes during a quarantine but not so for Walmart or Target? [...] How did a virus cancel the Constitution?  Did the lockdowns rob of us of our sanity?

With 50 Years, 1.7 Million Hits in the NFL, Why Have We Never Seen an "Arrhythmia" Cardiac Arrest Before?  The mainstream media is working overtime to avoid any mention that a Covid vaccine played any part in the NFL's Damar Hamlin's cardiac arrest.  Their established narrative lays blame on a "blow to his chest" as the cause for his heart attack during the 1st quarter of Monday's game.  This explanation is a deliberate attempt to keep the "V" word out of any Hamlin discussions. [...] The media attacked Stockton to ridicule and debunk his statement.  In January 2021, even Senator Ron Johnson noticed this issue.  Johnson said:  "Athletes are dropping dead on the field after receiving the COVID-19 vaccination".  It was just a matter of time before this happened in the NFL.

German doctor gets nearly 3 years in jail for issuing mask exemptions.  On New Year's day, a German doctor was sentenced to two years and nine months in prison PLUS a three-year work ban AND was ordered to pay $29,550.  Her crime?  "Illegally" issuing mask exemptions during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The $29k she is expected to pay is the sum she received for using the medical certificates.  Her office assistant was fined 2,700 euros.  That sounds like an honest day's work to me!

Health Care Workers Cry Foul on FDA Claiming It Didn't Prohibit Ivermectin for COVID-19.  Dr. Yusuf Saleeby has practiced medicine for more than 30 years.  He serves patients in South Carolina and until recently had never faced an investigation from his state medical board.  But after Saleeby started prescribing ivermectin to his patients, he was reported to the board, which opened an investigation, despite the state's attorney general's promise that his office wouldn't prosecute doctors who prescribed off-label medications.  Jennifer Wright, a nurse practitioner and clinical director who practices in Florida, but can prescribe across state lines, told The Epoch Times she received a letter from the Office of the Attorney General of New York ordering her not to prescribe ivermectin.  "You know, basically threatened me.  If I don't stop prescribing, then they're going to fine me," Wright said about the letter, which threatened legal action with fines of up to $5,000 per violation.

Fortunately, this guy was wrong:
The most likely scenario is that Damar Hamlin was brain dead on the field.  [Scroll down] The primary reason for this conclusion is the 9 minutes of CPR.  It is simply very rare for someone not to be brain dead at that point.  Nobody I talked to has ever heard of such a case.  That doesn't mean it hasn't happened.  It just means it is rare.  I pray that this is not the case, but I think we need to prepare for that possibility.  For example, there was no news from the hospital that his brain was still alive.  This would have been uplifting news to the crowd of people waiting outside the hospital, but it was never delivered. [...] If Hamlin is brain dead, the possibility must be considered that the COVID vaccine played a role in his death.  We cannot allow a potential killer to go free.  One medical expert I spoke with said there was a 99% chance this was due to the vaccine.  The reason for this opinion is that an injury of this nature (a relatively mild blow requiring 9 minutes of CPR and a failure of the defibrillator to revive him) is unprecedented if there wasn't some underlying condition.  If Hamlin had a known pre-existing condition, it would have surfaced by now.  Multiple sources confirm that Hamlin was vaccinated.  For example, the team boasted of being 100% vaccinated.  I also heard from an NFL coach that he was vaccinated.

Cardiac Arrest in Athletes.  [Scroll down] I am being hounded for what I think, and for what my clinical opinion is (I don't have one, the young gentleman is not my patient).  But still, my "wait and see what his physicians say" response doesn't sit well with many that are constantly seeking an opportunity to accuse of the defamatory sin of "controlled opposition".  Watching this all play out in the media and on-line, I do have some thoughts that I would like to share.  First, I think it is irresponsible for the state-sponsored press to be declaring that this was not due in some part to a vaccine injury this early in the game.  Because we don't know, no one does — not even his physicians.  I speculate that assuming he got vaccinated and boosted is probably a reasonable inference, given it is the policy of his team that there is 100% compliance with COVID vaccine mandates.  The corporate press getting in and attempting to skew the public opinion is a despicable move, but typical.  Particularly when these attempts involve both strong arming and attacking their "opponents" while using the tragic injury of a young man as a weapon.

They are the insurrectionists.  They commit insurrection when they ignore their duties to defend the nation from alien invasion and hostile action.  We have seen hostile action against the innocent with the full backing of DAs failure to faithfully prosecute these laws.  All of the public health laws were violated by the states over the pandemic, but no one was cited, no one was prosecuted for breaking those laws.  Why not?  Because no one filed charges against them or those charges were not taken seriously by the Sheriff's Department, but that should just add one more name to the list on the lawsuit, not discourage one from making the list.

China's Deadly Lies About COVID.  The only thing not going viral in China is the truth.  Chinese officials are spewing lies to cover up the massive COVID outbreak there.  Worse, U.S. public health officials dawdled for a week, allowing air travelers from China in without testing, while other countries immediately blocked infected travelers from entering.  Aerial photos and videos from China show body bags stacked outside hospitals and crematoria, funeral home parking lots full and hospitals overwhelmed with COVID patients jammed into hallways.  In Beijing and Sichuan, over 50% of the population is infected, according to internal government documents.  Yet the Chinese government officially claims there was only one COVID death in all of China on Dec. 31, none on Dec. 30 and one on Dec. 29.  That's in a nation of 1.4 billion people.

The Left Uses Big Tech to Create an Illusion of Scientific Consensus and Stifle Debate, Especially on COVID-19.  The Left has long used the notion of scientific consensus as a tool to silence debate on controversial issues, but the Twitter Files revealed just how far some Big Tech companies have gone to suppress legitimate scientific dissent — particularly on COVID-19 pandemic policy.  Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a Stanford professor of health policy who wound up on a Twitter Trends blacklist after he argued for focused protection of the vulnerable and an end to lockdowns, opened up in an article for The Free Press about the lesson he learned in 2022.  "I learned in a very concrete and painful way the effects of Washington and Silicon Valley working together to marginalize unpopular ideas and people to create an illusion of consensus," Bhattacharya wrote.  The Stanford professor recalled that after he and his allies published the anti-lockdown Great Barrington Declaration, National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins dismissed him and his allies as "fringe epidemiologists" and asked Anthony Fauci for "a quick and devastating published takedown" of the declaration.  Collins and Fauci collaborated to delegitimize the declaration, even though it was based in scientific principles and even though it predicted much of the now-acknowledged fallout from the lockdowns.

Disease Expert Blasts Japan's Ministry of Health: Halt Vaccine Campaign & Investigate All Vax Injuries.  Japan's Ministry of Health was taken to the woodshed for refusing to halt the COVID vaccine rollout, and was called upon to further investigate the many documented adverse reactions stemming from the jab.  Dr. Masanori Fukushima, Prof. Emeritus at Kyoto University with 25 years experience as an infectious diseases expert, warned the Ministry that the government must conduct a "proper investigation" into the COVID vaccine's damaging side effects.  [Video clip]

New California Law to Punish Doctors for 'Covid Misinformation Conduct'.  When seeing a doctor in California now, it is important to understand that you are now visiting a servant of some politicians, not an evidence-based medical professional, a doctor posted on Twitter.  Effective January 1, 2023, Assembly Bill 2098 authored by Assemblyman Evan Low (D-Campbell), and signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom, is to circumvent due process against doctors over "Covid misinformation conduct."  AB 2098 will punish physicians and surgeons for "unprofessional conduct" for advocating for the potential benefits of early treatment with off-label drugs, or those who dare to ask questions about COVID vaccine safety.  "There is no jury voting on this," Dr. Pete Mazolewski told the Globe in September.  "This is a California Medical Board decision."

Damar Hamlin's 'heart attack'.  The collapse of Damar Hamlin, Buffalo Bills Safety, after a tackle, has been described as a "heart attack," but the reader should be warned that medical events are sometimes not described properly.  What everybody who was watching the game witnessed on Monday was Mr. Hamlin taking what looked like an ordinary hit to the chest.  He and the other player both hit the ground, they both stood up, and then Hamlin collapsed in an instant.  He received at least nine minutes of CPR on the field before an ambulance arrived to take him to the hospital, where he is still in critical condition. [...] The defibrillator placed on Mr. Hamlin's chest was the saving grace because it restored a heartbeat that pumped blood.  He is now in an induced coma with the hope that it will protect not his heart but his brain.  Brain damage sets in after a few minutes of lack of circulation.  Persons who have an "out of hospital cardiac arrest" and receive early CPR and defibrillation with ideal response times have a 25% survival to discharge from the hospital, all comers.

It's Time to Ask Whether Repeated mRNA Vaccine Shots Weaken the Immune Response to COVID-19.  Once again, the free press has been asleep at the wheel.  Here is another example of how alternative news sources such as internet bloggers are much more useful to the general public than traditional media sources.  A new study out of Germany, funded by the German government, and published in the medical journal Science Immunology, raises the possibility that the so-called vaccine manufactured by BioNTech/Pfizer to fight the mRNA SARS-CoV-2 virus (and possibly the Moderna product), reduces a person's level of antibodies that fights the virus and increases the level of another kind of antibody that is much less effective at fighting the virus.

10 Scandals To Keep Your Eye On In 2023.  [#7] Covid-19:  Several scandals related to Covid-19 seem poised to blossom in 2023.  The "Twitter Files" revealed the government's push to silence critics of the federal response, and those details will likely spur many questions about those efforts — from the origins of Covid-19 and the likelihood of a lab leak, to the funding of gain-of-function research, to the safety and efficacy of the jab.  Related scandals may also evolve if it becomes clear that those responsible for formulating the government's response to Covid knew of the validity of contrary scientific opinions and lied to the public.

In War for Control of Humanity, Thoughts and Emotions Are the Battlefield: Dr. Robert Malone.  Inventor of mRNA vaccines Dr. Robert Malone, having worked with the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) for many years, warns that a war is being waged by the government for control of people's minds, and that social media platforms are being weaponized in this war and are "actively employed" by the intelligence community to influence what people think and feel.  "This new battleground, in which your mind and your thoughts, your very emotions are the battleground.  It is not about territory," Malone said during a recent interview for EpochTV's "American Thought Leaders" program.  "Twitter, it's clear now, has become the premium platform for shaping emerging global consensus about the topics of the day."  During his work with the DOD, Malone became aware of companies researching multilingual programs that assess the emotional content of the language used on social media, which those companies then use to "map relationship clouds," including what topics people are discussing, who the influencers are, and who is at the fringe of that cloud, said Malone.  Phenomena like being deplatformed, shadowbanned, and a "tweet" going viral is a part of this weaponizing of social media.

Remarkable Survey: 28% Of Americans Personally Know Someone Who Died from COVID-19 Jab.  A rather remarkable poll from Rasmussen shows some remarkable public polling outcomes about the COVID-19 jab.  According to the survey of 1,000 Americans, 28% of the polled respondents know someone personally who died as a side-effect of the COVID-19 vaccination.  The results cut across all cultural and political boundaries as reflected in the data.  According to Rasmussen, "Twenty-eight percent (28%) of adults say they personally know someone whose death they think may have been caused by side effects of COVID-19 vaccines, while 61% don't and another 10% are not sure."

The Architecture of Corruption: Why Elon Musk is Justified to Call for the Prosecution of Dr. Anthony Fauci.  [Scroll down] And yet, there is a deeper story than the public presentations of Dr. Anthony Fauci.  Most importantly, the public deserves to know what happened behind the scenes of public health over the decades and the role Dr. Fauci played in those developments.  This is the real cause for concern, because there is no doubt that Dr. Fauci is one of the most powerful men in the federal government.  Why did the scientific establishment mostly move in lockstep with Dr. Fauci?  Follow the money.  One of my former co-authors was Dr. Francis Ruscetti, [... who] explained to me that, beginning with President Nixon's "War on Cancer" in 1972, funding decisions for promising research was taken away from independent groups of scientists, and increasingly concentrated in the hands of the department heads.  People like Dr. Francis Collins of the National Institutes of Health, or Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, suddenly became significantly more important than their predecessors.  Vast amounts of money began to flow through their departments and into a variety of projects.

Fauci Leaves a Broken Agency for His Successor.  After 54 years at the NIH, tomorrow marks Dr. Anthony Fauci's last day in office as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).  While many were angered by his changing and conflicting recommendations, I am not.  They are mere symptoms of a much larger and deeper problem.  Dr. Fauci's agency failed to promptly fund key research during the pandemic.  That research would have abruptly ended many of the COVID controversies that divided our country.

Dr. Robert Malone Calls For International Tribunal to Investigate Dr. Anthony Fauci and Peter Daszak.  Inventor of mRNA vaccine technology Dr. Robert Malone is calling for an international tribunal to "investigate and prosecute" all those responsible for the millions of deaths caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus — most notably former NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci, and Eco-Health Alliance president Peter Daszak.  "If the UN is a legitimate organization, it must investigate and prosecute those responsible for the millions of deaths caused by the lab-created SARS-CoV-2 virus" Malone tweeted on New Year's Day.  "That is, those people and organizations responsible for the creation of this virus.  Prosecute Fauci/Daszak now," the vaccinologist said.  Dr. Malone is one of dozens of COVID vaccine critics who have been reinstated onto Twitter by "Chief Twit" Elon Musk after being permanently suspended under the previous management.

The Editor says...
Don't hold your breath waiting for the U.N. to prosecute the Deep State.  Does the U.N. have a prison somewhere?

An Astonishing Percentage of Americans Credit COVID-19 Vaccines for Unexplained Deaths.  In new polling, Rasmussen asked Americans about their perceptions of COVID-19 vaccine safety.  Among respondents, 71% report receiving at least a portion of the vaccine series.  It is easy to see how partisanship has impacted COVID shot uptake.  While 85% of Democrats report receiving the shots, only 63% of Republicans and 64% of unaffiliated voters report the same.  Yet, despite a majority reporting that they have taken the shots, almost 50% believe it is at least somewhat likely that side effects of COVID-19 vaccines have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths.  All men and people between 18 and 39 agree with the statement at the highest rates.  This coincides with the cardiac side effect profile for men under 40 and the excess death rates reported by insurance actuaries in the working-age population.  And, despite the partisan differences in vaccine uptake, 51% of Democrats agree the shots could cause the recent uptick in unexplained deaths.

How did this get here?  It's totally off-topic.
Buffalo Bills Star Damar Hamlin Collapses After Play, Gets CPR.  Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin is in a critical condition in hospital after collapsing on the field and needing CPR and treatment from a defibrillator during his team's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.  Hamlin tackled Bengals receiver Tee Higgins in the first quarter and got up briefly before falling backwards to the ground and laying motionless.

There's Nothing Wrong With Asking Questions About Damar Hamlin's Sudden Collapse.  During a regularly scheduled Monday Night Football game between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals, Bills safety Damar Hamlin was transported off the field via ambulance following a sudden collapse. [...] According to ESPN, Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest and had his heartbeat restarted on the field before being taken away in the ambulance.  He currently remains sedated and in critical condition at the hospital. [...] Since the Monday night tragedy, speculation has rippled across social media about the root cause of Hamlin's collapse.  Was it the force of the hit?  Did Hamlin receive the Covid jab and was it a contributing factor?  Or did Hamlin catch Covid and have it weaken his heart?  The simple answer is that we don't know anything concrete at this point. [...] What we do know, however, is that Hamlin is far from the only young and healthy athlete to suffer sudden cardiac-related problems over the past few years.  Just last month, a former tight end for the University of Central Florida's football team died suddenly at the age of 25 after going into cardiac arrest while out on a jog.  Separately, a 21-year-old Greek soccer player abruptly died after going into cardiac arrest during a match early last year.  Similar cardiac-related incidents have been reported among other soccer players and high-profile athletes.

Report: At Least 769 Recently Vaxxed Athletes Collapsed Last Year During Competition.  One of the underlying stories of 2022 is the enormous number of professional athletes — primarily men with an average age of 23 — collapsing during competition.  Though many of these instances have been documented in singular reports.  Mainstream media outlets appear reluctant to link this unprecedented surge in collapses to the Covid-19 jab.  Or to even bother asking follow up questions as to why or how this is happening.  This is especially suspicious considering the majority of these collapsing instances involved recently vaccinated and or boosted athletes.  One America News Network (OAN) did some digging and discovered more than 769 athletes have collapsed on the field during a game from March 2021 to March 2022.

Jill Biden's New Year's Message Is Everything Wrong With the Biden Administration.  I've got good news and bad news.  The good news?  2022 is over with and in the books.  The bad news?  2023 is here and promises to be just as ridiculous.  Jill Biden provided proof of that during a joint appearance with her husband on New Year's Eve.  Sitting beside an obviously confused Joe Biden, whose eyes have shrunk to the size of marbles over the last couple of years, she used her time on the national stage to once again promote the COVID-19 vaccines.  Again, this was on December 31st in the year of Our Lord, 2022.  [Tweet]  It's just mind-numbing that we are still doing this knowing what we now know.  How many booster regimes have been circulated at this point that have failed to stamp out the pandemic?  And how much of the nation has already been vaccinated at some level anyway?  Yet, with just hours left in 2022, here's Jill Biden talking like it's the Fall of 2021, refusing to give us a break, even on a holiday, from the onslaught of propaganda.  What kind of uplifting message for the new year is it to once again hijack audiences with demands to go get vaccinated for COVID-19?  [Indeed], why mention the pandemic at all?

How Reagan Predicted The Left's COVID Fixation.  A recent study published by our friends at the Committee to Unleash Prosperity found that in almost half the states in the country, enhanced unemployment benefits with expanded Obamacare subsidies add up to the median wage or more.  In 14 states, just these two government programs are equal to $80,000 in wages and benefits.  In Washington, Massachusetts, and New Jersey, they add up to more than $100,000 in earned income.  The Obamacare expansion was advertised as a "temporary" program to help those affected by COVID. But it remains in place until 2025 and will no doubt be extended between now and then.  Try to imagine all this being done without COVID.  The left isn't interested in using COVID just to increase dependency on government, but as a cover to impose Marxist-style collectivism on Americans.

Scott Atlas calls Twitter's COVID censorship "criminal".  Elon Musk is steadily revealing how Twitter censored physicians who did not toe the Democrat party line on COVID treatments or vaccines.  Scott Atlas was one of the physicians who tried to speak out and who was censored for doing so.  In an interview with Eva Fu, Atlas explains that this Twitter censorship should be considered criminal because the policy deprived Americans of information that could have saved lives.  Atlas wrote a book [...] describing his epic battle against the federal public health agencies, especially Doctors Fauci and Birx, during his short stint at the Trump White House.  He gives details about the malevolence and mendacity that characterized the deep state and public health community.

Governments have learnt that fear works — and that is truly terrifying.  As the year in which life officially returned to normal comes to an end, we must ask an uncomfortable question.  What on earth just happened?  We have lived through a period of what would once have been the unthinkable suspension of basic freedoms:  interventions by the state into personal life that even most totalitarian governments would not have dared to impose.  And we, along with most (not all) of the democratic societies of the West, accepted it.  Before that era slips into the fog of convenient forgetfulness, it is absolutely imperative that we — the country as a whole — hold a thorough post hoc examination, because our governing classes have certainly learnt something they will remember.  The critical lesson that has been indelibly absorbed by people in power, and those who advise them, is that fear works.  There is, it turns out, almost nothing that a population (even one as brave and insouciant as Britain's) will not give up if they are systematically, relentlessly frightened.

The COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel recommends against the use of anti-SARS-CoV-2 Monoclonal Antibodies for the treatment of COVID-19.  Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) that target the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein have been shown to have clinical benefits in treating SARS-CoV-2 infection.  However, laboratory studies have found that the activity of anti-SARS-CoV-2 mAbs against specific variants and subvariants can vary dramatically.  Because of this, these products are not expected to be effective treatments for COVID-19 in areas where the circulating variants and subvariants are resistant to mAbs.

In the British Commonwealth, the Stasi urge is growing.  Last month, six people — including two police officers — were shot at a remote property in Australia's northern Queensland state.  Three suspects were identified by senior police sources as the (alleged) killers, and in the press, they were identified as "far right" fanatics.  In response to the heinous crime, Queensland police decided to go full Stasi and enhance their powers on other matters by urging people to turn in fellow citizens who might not fully believe and support everything their government says, does, or its mandates.  Queensland is considered the home of Australia's version of "rednecks," who are known as "bogans."  Queensland Deputy Police Commissioner Tracy Linford stated "we'd want to know about it" should there be "anybody out there that knows of someone that might be showing concerning behavior around conspiracy theories, anti-government, anti-police," or "conspiracy theories around COVID-19 vaccination."  She added, "you can either contact the police directly or go through Crime Stoppers."  Sure, let's draw a line between serial murderers and those who have the temerity to question the efficacy of COVID-1984 vaccines.  If you know of anyone who questions the government, "experts," or "settled science,"  turn them in  let those in power know about it right away, won't you?  The same goes for those trafficking in "misinformation" and/or "disinformation."

Mike Pompeo claims Xi Jinping is trying to infect the world with another variant of COVID.  Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo insists the U.S. — and the world — should shut down accepting travel from China right after the Communist country announced it would be easing travel restrictions in the New Year.  He warned that Chinese President Xi Jinping has a plot to infect the world and spread a new COVID-19 variant after 'the whole world has been through hell.'  China, which has the most stringent COVID-19 restrictions still in place, announced last month that it would start allowing travel out of and into the country following three years of 'zero COVID' policies.

California's Crazy New Year: Five Radical Laws Go into Effect.  [#2] AB 2098: 'COVID Misinformation' — This law, signed in September, requires California's medical licensing boards to take disciplinary action against doctors who are involved with the "dissemination of misinformation or disinformation related to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, or 'COVID-19'."  The law does not take into account the fact that authorities like Dr. Anthony Fauci changed their recommendations over time.

Kamala Harris Requires COVID Tests for Anyone Over Two Years Old to Participate in Senate Swearing-In Photos.  Vice President Kamala Harris is requiring any senator or family member or guest of a senator wishing to take a photo with her at Tuesday's swearing-in ceremony for the new Congress to have a negative coronavirus test taken within 24 hours of the picture, Breitbart News has learned.  The U.S. Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Protocol Office blasted out a message on Thursday to all Senate offices noting that Harris's office is requiring the coronavirus tests before taking photos with the vice president.

Joe Rogan - The One Year Anniversary.  My friend and colleague Matt Tune, who helped set up Joe Rogan interview #1757 and came with me to Austin for the studio recording, sent out a tweet yesterday — with a few photos.  This particular year seems like it has stretched out forever!  Now filed under "stranger things", just before the interview, I was banned from both Twitter and Linked-in.  A coincidence that I think is highly unlikely.  Maybe the next "Twitter Files" drop will clarify that sequence of events.  Frankly — I had no idea how this podcast would change my life.  That is until it went live, and the number of people watching it just kept going up and up and up.  Some even say I even "broke Google".  That is, I broke their search term algorithms, and they had to resort to cheating to control the rankings for the term "mass formation psychosis" (a term that I did not invent) to fit the main-stream narrative.

Many have shrugged off the need to get updated Covid boosters.  Only 15% of people eligible for the Covid booster shot that targets the omicron variant have gotten it — a rate that is even lower than the perennially disappointing rates for flu vaccine uptake.  Vaccine fatigue seems to have spread to other shots, too — including those to prevent measles and polio — according to a recent poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

The Editor says...
Indeed, the vaccines "to prevent measles and polio" are quite different from the Covid Clot Shots, because they prevent measles and polio.  Covid shots don't prevent the disease — they appear to encourage it.

'Censorship actually killed people'.  Dr. Jay Battacharya of Stanford is one of the great heroes of the Covid epidemic, a fearless truth-teller in the face of overwhelming pressure to parrot the party line emanating from the Faucists in control of the governmental, academic and pharmaceutical establishments, all of which enriched themselves and/or grabbed unprecedented power from their respionse to the viral outbreak.  Speaking with Megyn Kelly, who has become another brave truth-teller in her online show, Dr. Battacharya laid out with factual backup the horrendous consequences of the suppression of honest discussion of Covid policy that has been revealed with the release of the Twitter Files (so far, with much more to come, according to Elon Musk).  Opposition to policies that were dead wrong was suppressed, and we now have proof of that.

New Video Explores How the Pandemic Unveiled the Worst Among Us.  The narrator reviews how during the pandemic, many people mistakenly acted as though they were suddenly deputized police officers enforcing real laws.  Interspersed with personal experiences, the video forces you to remember your own.  In my case, it was the waif of a teenage girl behind the deli counter shouting, "I cannot serve you unless you put a mask on!"  (I didn't go back for six months.)  Then there was the tour guide in Massachusetts who threatened to have our open-air bus, which was packed with tourists, completely stopped because my mask had fallen below my nose.  And of course, who can forget the young teens in the Adirondacks, who militaristically demanded I fill out my name and address before I could jump in the lake on a scorching hot day.  In each case, it seemed like their hardness came easily; that they even relished their new authoritarian roles. [...] The video then airs footage of those "six feet apart" footstep signs that magically appeared on commercial floors around the world.  (Something of which we surprisingly had no shortage.)  Then there were the arrows instructing us in one-way foot traffic.  If you want the limited science behind that, you can find it in Science Direct.  And if you think they are done with their social experiments like COVID foot traffic patterns, think again.

The Editor says...
I was ejected from Costco because I wasn't wearing a mask — in late summer 2021, long after it was common knowledge that masks do no good.  Of course I've never returned; and of course they don't care, but I'm not going back.
