Notice how Covid fear porn suddenly disappeared, right about the time the Ukraine-Russia fear porn started? Really interesting coincidence, no? Watch the following video – it may explain a few things. Like how it seems we are all being manipulated; having our civil liberties stripped from us; the loss of economic choice, plenty, and freedom.
It’s called the “Great Reset” and it has been in the works for some time. Think of it as a missing piece in a strange and mysterious puzzle.
Nothing is more despicable than respect based on fear.
The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
Researchers from Johns Hopkins University released a study that has concluded that not only did lockdowns have little or no effect, but that they have actually increased other health issues, resulted in massive economic damage, and contributed to a wide-range of social and psychological ills.
We find no evidence that lockdowns, school closures, border closures, and limiting gatherings have had a noticeable effect on COVID-19 mortality…They have contributed to reducing economic activity, raising unemployment, reducing schooling, causing political unrest, contributing to domestic violence, and undermining liberal democracy
States are beginning to drop mandates for vaccinations and masks in droves, even while the Biden Administration tries to push for “full speed ahead”.
Of course, “fact checkers” and social media platforms are in full damage control mode. Many politicians are finally caving due to the ominous approach of mid-term elections which are likely to go against those supporting the “Covidian” narrative. This was always about politics and power – it was NEVER about “public health.”
Having worked as a scientist and in scientific research (in various capacities) for my entire career, I’ve tried to explain to people why “peer reviewed studies” – especially when funded by government and reported by media – need to be regarded with healthy skepticism. This fellow “el Gato malo” runs a blog at Substack, and his article “Telling the truth in the age of sponsored science” sums up my experiences better than anything I’ve found thus far. In fact, el Gato “hits-it-out-of the-park” IMHO.
You should take the time to read it. It gets slightly technical, but he does a very good job of explaining the subversion and politicization of science, and how (as I’ve complained here previously) the conclusions often don’t fit the actual data in many of these studies. I would also recommend reading the comments – there are some very bright and experienced people who follow this blog and their observations are enlightening.
It is also important to keep the lessons of Covid fear-mongering in mind as we approach the next great “catastrophe” that will be used for further government power grabs – “Climate Change”.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has vilified 10’s of thousands of protesting truckers and working class people as “fringe”, “Nazis”, “white supremacists”, “racists”, etc. He has of course been joined by Canadian and American media as well as the political class of both nations in his condemnations. The Biden Administration has made a not-so-veiled call for Trudeau to use force to subdue the malcontents.
The Freedom Convoy has been accused of perpetrating acts of vandalism, violence, food theft, abuse of the homeless, and countless other horrific acts – with absolutely ZERO evidence presented. The protests have been overwhelmingly peaceful, with protestors committing such horrific acts as picking up trash, cleaning war monuments, dancing, and hugging each other (and others) a lot.
Slash (their) tires, empty gas tanks, arrest the drivers, and move the trucks.
— Juliette Kayyem, CNN “Analyst”
Of course it would be fun to watch the government attempt to move a bunch of big-rigs with slashed tires and no fuel, but..hey, she went to Harvard and stuff! Besides, towing companies are telling the government to go-pound-sand.
The Freedom Convoy has spread from Ottawa to major border crossing points like the Ambassador Bridge between Windsor and Detroit. In this regard, it is interesting that the governments of the U.S. and Canada are screaming that the Convoy is “disrupting business and people going to work”. Remember, these are the same government officials that paralyzed the economies of BOTH nations for 2 YEARS with ineffective and unnecessary lockdowns. The same governments that violated basic human rights, even while endorsing violent BLM and Antifa riots that resulted in murder, business destruction, looting, arson, burned government buildings, “autonomous zones” (CHOP), and billions in economic damage.
Equally amusing – government and their corporate cronies are now claiming the automobile shortages (that have been going on for 2 years) are being caused by the Convoy (which has been going on for 2 weeks). Even though auto manufacturers had already stated recently they were reducing production (again) due to chip shortages related to ongoing supply chain disruptions (caused by the government).
In Michigan, Governor Gretchen Whitmer (who absolutely hammered small businesses with her draconian Covid policies) is now suddenly a heroic defender of small business? Please.
If all of that wasn’t bad enough, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security has issued the following chilling warning concerning “domestic terrorism”:
Who gets to decide what is “misinformation, disinformation, or malinformation?” The government?
Any criticism of the government could be considered to “undermine public trust in government institutions”. What then, is the purpose of the 1st Amendment?
So all criticisms of government that government doesn’t like are terrorist activities because they might “inspire” some random person to commit an act of violence?
I would submit that the 1st Amendment in all of its’ forms was designed to enable Americans to hold government accountable. That especially includes leveling criticisms that the government and their media/corporate allies might not like.
If the 1st Amendment was strictly created to praise and heap adoration on government institutions, we wouldn’t need it, now would we? Last time I checked, North Korea had no 1st Amendment, and Kim Jong-Un was just fine with citizen heaping adoration on his regime – in fact it is strongly encouraged – or required.
We have not been given informed consent on the vaccines, and as I mentioned in a previous post, our government and businesses have no authority to mandate their use. I continue to stand by my original assertion that the vaccine mandates violate the Nuremberg Code. In this undercover video, a pharmacist admits it:
No, Pfizer is NOT FDA Approved:
I opined previously that I believe based on my research, that the Pfizer jabs were indeed NOT approved by the FDA. “Fact-checkers” have claimed alternately everything from “it’s just a brand name” to “it is the exact same formulation”. Yet here is another article discussing how the two are legally distinct, and that the approved Comirnaty vax is not yet available in the supply chain.
Furthermore, Pfizer admits that the vaccine it is distributing is still being dispensed under an EUA. Pfizer has no immediate plans to begin distribution of Comirnaty.
The Pfizer spokesperson said the EUA-authorized product “will still be shipped and usable until its expiry date, as long as authorized frozen storage conditions have been maintained.”
The FDA noted last week that there’s not enough of Comirnaty “available for distribution to this population in its entirety.”
For its’ part, the FDA keeps repeating the same mantra:
The licensed vaccine has the same formulation as the EUA-authorized vaccine and the products can be used interchangeably to provide the vaccination series without presenting any safety or effectiveness concerns. The products are legally distinct with certain differences that do not impact safety or effectiveness.
First, the FDA does acknowledge that there are “certain differences” but this surely goes beyond labeling. I found a Pfizer fact sheet on Comirnaty that doesn’t go into a lot of detail, but does specify among other things: “the new formulation allows for longer storage” and further: “The new formulation for the currently approved population (individuals 12 years of age and older) will be available in a phased rollout starting in early 2022”.
From this we can glean at least 2 things:
The formulation is not, and cannot be “identical”.
Contrary to what the media and government have claimed, Comirnaty is NOT currently available. Pfizer admits it will be delivered in a “phased rollout starting in early 2022.”
Whether or not these differences are cause for concern is anybody’s guess. But we know that our public health officials and the media have NOT been forthcoming or transparent on any of this. Additionally, legality matters, and legally, the 2 formulations are distinct. Therefore, even if these differences between Comirnaty and Pfizer prove inconsequential, the fact remains that what has been used as the justification for “mandates” was not legally approved by FDA, thus bringing the validity of the mandates into question.
Misleading Covid Hospitalization Stats:
As world governments continue stoking “fear porn” about the spread of the Omicron variant, we’ve seen an increasing number of news stories about hospitals being “swamped” with Covid cases. But Omicron has been widely reported to present with only mild symptoms and a low rate of hospitalization and deaths, so what’s going on?
In the U.K. two thirds of all “Covid hospitalizations” were actually people who were admitted for another ailment and who subsequently tested positive.
In Vermont, the proliferation of quickie at-home antigen tests has resulted in ERs becoming clogged with people seeking PCR tests, even though most don’t even have any symptoms.
Worldwide, most Omicron case are either asymptomatic or present as mild “cold-like” symptoms. Most people wouldn’t even know they had it with a test.
Despite these obvious facts, government and their media allies have continued to fuel public hysteria as a means of manipulating and controlling their citizens. Dr. Robert Malone, co-inventor of mRNA vaccine technology discusses how government and activist interests are using the pandemic to push the Overton Window to fundamentally change the relationship between the people and government authority.
More importantly, the persistent fear-mongering is leading to a brand new and much more serious pandemic – collective psychosis.
Another Reason not to Vax Your Kids:
A newly published paper establishes that children generally experience mild or asymptomatic effects from Covid, and after recovering from infection, “develop robust and sustained cross-reactive spike-specific immune responses”.
In November a researcher working at the behest of Pfizer to conduct vaccine trials approached the British Medical Journal (BMJ) to report data integrity problems with the trials, including falsifying data and failing to report adverse reactions.
Mayor Lori Lighfoot has presided over an unprecedented crime wave and massive economic decline as the City of Chicago falls into a state of anarchy. Meanwhile, she appears quite vigilant about enforcing draconian vaccine mandates on the masses:
The chart above is from the U.K. study. Keep in mind, that although the infection rates for unvaccinated kids is high, they are not likely to experience severe illness.
EV Epic Fail:
The Biden Administration wants us all out of gasoline powered cars and into Electric Vehicles (EVs) as soon as possible. But like most “green” advocates the climate change fanatics failed to take a number of important factors into account.
For instance, what happens when your expensive battery pack dies in 5-6 years? For this Finish gentleman, he was told the price tag would be about $22,500 – hardly worth the trouble for a 2013 Tesla. So he decided to donate it to a bunch of guys who like to blow things up:
It’s in Finnish, but it’s subtitled, and well, an explosion is an explosion… Besides, they put Elon Musk in the driver’s seat!
This week: Worldwide protests against vaccine mandates and lockdowns; the strange correlation between higher vax rates and death; the “Climate Change” farce; and media stupidity.
Corona Virus Updates:
If you are reading this from the U.S. or Canada, keep your eyes peeled for incoming lockdowns. As Covid cases “spike” across the world, Europe is instituting draconian lockdowns and the normally compliant public is having none of it.
Austria is now placing non-vaccinated citizens under virtual house arrest, while the vaccinated public is largely free to go about their business (for now). With a fully-vaxxed rate of only 64%, that means 36% (~3.3 million people) of the population will be held prisoner until they comply. This has led to an explosion of protests in the capitol, Vienna:
Meanwhile, the British government’s own statistics show that “fully vaccinated” individuals are dying at twice the rate as the unvaccinated, which leads one to question if the vaccines are making people MORE susceptible to Covid as time (and boosting) goes on?
Evidence continues to mount that natural immunity is far superior to the vaccines, and that it is possible that receiving a vaccination too soon after recovery from natural infection may even hamper the development of immunity. Yet the CDC still refuses to acknowledge the efficacy of natural immunity – at all.
Also disturbing are the number of deaths associated with adverse Covid vaccine events. One casualty: 56 year old Mike Granata who wanted people to know what the vaccine did to him:
Many nurses and non-nursing staff begged me and my wife to get the truth out to the public about the Covid-19 vaccines because the truth of deaths from the vaccine was being hidden within the medical profession
You should know that scientists are “mystified” as to the reasons why Covid has all but ignored the entire continent of Africa, where vaccination rates are low (but the use of Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine is high) at around 6% overall.
Africa doesn’t have the vaccines and the resources to fight COVID-19 that they have in Europe and the U.S., but somehow they seem to be doing better
— Wafaa El-Sadr, Columbia University
Interestingly, one of the higher vaxxed nations in Africa – South Africa (41%) – also has one of the highest rates of Covid-related fatalities. Yet globalists are pushing hard for more vaccines there.
Although the vaccine mandate for private employers in the U.S. has been temporarily put on-hold by a Federal court, Biden’s other mandates are about to jettison thousands of military personnel, healthcare workers, and TSA screeners. Regardless, the Biden Administration continues to push private employers to issue mandates, and many seem to be complying. These mandates are poised to wreck the economy, our military, and our healthcare system.
We keep hearing about the “science” and yet one of the most fundamental tenets of actual science is the ability to subject data to peer review and critical analysis. It should be noted that this FDA petition comes after months of dodging requests for data from scientific researchers in the U.S.
So, let’s get this straight. The federal government shields Pfizer from liability. Gives it billions of dollars. Makes Americans take its product. But won’t let you see the data supporting its product’s safety and efficacy. Who does the government work for?
— Aaron Siri
It’s almost like they’re hiding something.
Climate Change Madness:
Some skeptical people have begun to question the real purpose of the Covid lockdowns. Perhaps they are preparing us for something? In India, they are issuing “climate lockdowns” to stem air pollution.
In the U.S. we are told that electric vehicles (EVs) are a necessary step to avert a climate “disaster”. China is frequently held up as a “model” of where we need to go (yes, really). Yet the Chinese seem to be having some real “issues”with that whole environmental sustainability thing.
Industry data shows that the service life of lithium batteries used in electric vehicles is generally 5 to 8 years, and the service life under warranty is 4 to 6 years. That means, tens of thousands of electric car batteries will soon need to be discarded or recycled, and millions more down the road
— Shawn Li, Epoch Times
Meat is another target of the “Green Commissars”.
We have been told- repeatedly and for years- that cattle production is one of the largest sources of greenhouse gasses and therefore we should no longer eat meat, or at least severely cut back in order to save the planet
— Hardscrabble Farmer
In this little gem of an article the author compares the number of cows in the U.S. to the number of wild ungulates (hoofed animals) prior to the arrival of European settlers. The results are – interesting! It’s amazing what a little math and some logic can accomplish. Too bad neither is a strong suit for our governing elites.
If you’ve been paying attention you are probably aware (and a bit surprised) that the “OK” symbol is now widely regarded as a symbol of “white supremacy” – yes, seriously. I heard it again just a couple of nights ago from some idiotic “journalists” and decided to do a little write-up on this ridiculous fallacy.
In 2017, a group of users on the message board “4chan” decided to “troll” the media and political figures with a hoax dubbed “Operation OKKK“.
Needless to say, it worked like a charm. Surprisingly, even leftist Wikipedia has an article debunking the “OK” symbol as a form of “white supremacy.” If the media and our politicians are too stupid to figure this out – after over 4 years – then why are you listening to any of them about anything?
There is so much happening right now it’s hard to keep up with it all, especially given my limited time to devote to this blog. I’m doing my best to highlight some of the most important topics, but inevitably, there are some I will miss. This week: vax damage, immigration hijinks, energy shortages, abuses by the trans-lobby, the “bi-partisan” infrastructure bill, and green energy madness.
Questions about the Vax:
A Swedish investigation into the spike protein present in the Coronadoom (which is also produced by the vax) shows that the protein interferes with the ability of your cells to repair DNA. This leads to concerns about long-term cancer risk.
Nurses across the country are reporting an inordinate number of very sick people in the nation’s hospitals. Over 80% of these individuals have been fully vaccinated, and the majority are NOT suffering from Covid.
Most shocking perhaps, is how doctors and administrators refuse to report the rising number of unexplained medical problems in otherwise healthy people as potential adverse reactions to the COVID-19 experimental vaccine shots.
Dr. Peter McCullough: The spike protein damages the heart and is deadly inside the human body:
Dr. Robert Kaplan of the Stanford School of Medicine shares his concerns about the vax with Ron Johnson’s Senate subcommittee:
MIT research scientist Retsef Levi discusses the government-led campaign to silence scientific debate on the Covid vax:
The family of an elderly man who died of Covid-19, donated his body to “science” in accordance with his wishes. They subsequently discovered that he was dissected in front of a live audience – not for scientific purposes – but for the “dark entertainment” of paying, degenerate onlookers.
Swiss Policy Research on the efficacy (or lack thereof) of mask mandates.
More research out of Israel indicating that the vax has no impact on mortality rates when compared to low-vax Palestine. But, but, boosters!
The House passed the $1.75 trillion “infrastructure” bill with the help of 13 feckless virtue-signaling Republicans. So what’s in it exactly? We’ve been told it is all about “roads and bridges”, yet only $110 billion of the bill is allocated for that purpose. There is $55 billion for upgrades and repairs to America’s dilapidated electrical grid, and other monies for ports, broadband, and airports.
But then, there is the crazy stuff:
$500 million for “tree equity” (WTF is that?)
$400 million giveaway to bloated Universities
$75 million for a study on how to tax Americans for road usage based on income level (per mile)
$750 million to Washington D.C. for their public transport system
Washington has a plan, and it involves eliminating the use of ALL fossil fuels and replacing them (apparently) with thousands of windmills and solar panels. We won’t get into the absurdity of “climate change” or the complete unworkability of this scheme today, but let’s just say you should be prepared for massive energy shortages. Your way of life is being systematically destroyed based on “models”. You may even experience blackouts this winter, and certainly, skyrocketing energy prices.
The plan to eliminate fossil fuels from America’s power grid is called “Net Zero”. Treasury Secretary Janet “granny” Yellen estimates the price tag at $150 trillion (which means the real cost is probably 2-3x’s that amount).
You and your family may freeze to death, but hey, mother earth has a temperature and it’s all your fault!
So what is the Administration doing to help alleviate this problem?
Question: What happens when the interests of one favored “oppressed” group conflicts with those of another? Which side will the Progressive social engineers take? It all depends on which group best helps them advance their Marxist agenda at any given moment. Ladies of America, prepare to be tossed under the bus! Feminism is dead, long live Trans!
Youngkin not only ran on racism — he ran on a very specific kind of racism targeted at white women. And white women came through for him.
— David Roberts, Vox
In another interesting case, a teenage girl reported a sexual assault to school officials in Charlotte, NC. The alleged perpetrator confessed to police and was subsequently charged. So why was the victim suspended? We don’t know anything yet about the perp, but stay tuned – there is always a “reason”.
Cultural Enrichment, Demographic Terraforming:
By now almost anyone with a pulse knows our southern border is totally out-of-control. What you may not know, is that the Biden Administration would like to give $450,000 to each person “traumatized” by Customs and Border Enforcement. It is estimated that about $1 million would be paid to each family.
Think about that, then look at your 401K. Now look at your paystub. Biden initially said the report was “garbage”, then walked it back and said he was talking about the amount. Then the White House said they would be “comfortable” with a settlement.
