Second Stage Terror Wars (Edward Curtin)

It is well known that the endless US war on terror was overtly launched following the mass murders of September 11, 2001 and the linked anthrax attacks. The invasion of Afghanistan and the Patriot Act were immediately justified by those insider murders, and subsequently the wars against Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc. So too the terrorizing of the American people with constant fear-mongering about imminent Islamic terrorist attacks from abroad that never came. It is less well known that the executive director of the U.S. cover story – the fictional 9/11 Commission Report – was Philip Zelikow, who controlled and shaped the report from start to finish.

It is even less well known that Zelikow, a professor at the University of Virginia, was closely associated with Condoleezza Rice, George W. Bush, Dickey Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Brent Scowcroft, et al. and had served in various key intelligence positions in both the George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush administrations. In 2011 President Obama named him to his President’s Intelligence Advisory Board as befits bi-partisan elite rule and coverup compensation across political parties. Perhaps it’s unknown or just forgotten that The Family Steering Committee for the 9/11 Commission repeatedly called for Zelikow’s removal, claiming that his appointment made a farce of the claim that the Commission was independent. Zelikow said that for the Commission to consider alternative theories to the government’s claims about Osama bin Laden was akin to whacking moles.

This is the man, who at the request of his colleague Condoleezza Rice, became the primary author of (NSS 2002) The National Security Strategy of the United States of America, that declared that the U.S. would no longer abide by international law but was adopting a policy of preemptive war, as declared by George W. Bush at West Point in June 2002. This was used as justification for the attack on Iraq in 2003 and was a rejection of the charter of the United Nations. So, based on Zelikow’s work creating a magic mountain of deception while disregarding so-called molehills, we have had twenty years of American terror wars around the world in which U.S. forces have murdered millions of innocent people. Wars that will be continuing for years to come despite rhetoric to the contrary. The rhetoric is simply propaganda to cover up the increasingly technological and space-based nature of these wars and the use of mercenaries and special forces.

Simultaneously, in a quasi-volte-face, the Biden administration has directed its resources inward toward domestic “terrorists”: that is, anyone who disagrees with its policies. This is especially aimed at those who question the COVID-19 story. Now Zelikow has been named to head a COVID Commission Planning Group based at the University of Virginia that is said to prepare the way for a National COVID Commission. The group is funded by the Schmidt Futures, the Skoll Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation and Stand Together, with more expected to join in.

“This ideological mass psychosis is religion—not science.”

Fear Is the Mind-Killer (Alice)

Can you imagine what master propagandist Edward Bernays would have done with access to today’s mainstream media conglomerate combined with the global surveillance infrastructure of Big Tech? And you really think that’s not happening now—with another century of psychological, neurological, and technological research under their belts? The present ability to curate reality and coerce obedience is unprecedented, far beyond what Orwell envisioned in 1984, Bradbury in Fahrenheit 451, Huxley in Brave New World, and Burgess in A Clockwork Orange. A textbook example of Problem Reaction Solution, the current tsunami of worldwide hysteria is the latest and potentially most threatening example of mass control in history.

The recipe is simple. Take a naturally occurring phenomenon, say a seasonal virus, and exaggerate its threat far beyond every imagining—despite exhaustive evidence to the contrary. Suppress, silence, ostracize, and demonize every individual who dares present facts that expose the false mono-narrative. Whip up a witches’ brew of anger, envy, and, most importantly, fear, escalating emotions to a boil so as to short-circuit our faculties of reason and logic. Isolate us from one another, supplant real-world interactions with virtual feuds, label nonconformists as a threat to the group, and pump the public with a disinformation campaign designed to confuse and atomize. In essence, foster a cultlike mentality that shuts down thought to guarantee assent.

Cultivate and wield our cognitive biases—especially ingroup bias, conformity bias, and authority bias—against us in a comprehensive divide-and-conquer policy that keeps us too busy squabbling amongst each other to recognize and unite against those corralling us into a Matrix-like collective delusion that enables the powerful to extract our resources for their own gain. This ideological mass psychosis is religion—not science. If this were about science, the Media–Pharmaceutical–Big-Tech complex would not be memory-holing every dissenting voice, vilifying every thought criminal, and censoring every legitimate inquiry in quest of the truth.

With obesity such a major factor in Covid deaths, two birds with one stone.

How To Cure Type 2 Diabetes – Without Medication (G.)

[..] Modest words for a man whose “useful contribution to society” has given hope to the 3.9m people diagnosed with the condition in the UK and who has shown doctors a new way to fight a disease which causes 185 amputations and 700 premature deaths every week. Now, he wants to go one step further and share everything he has learned directly with the public, in a new book, Your Simple Guide to Reversing Type 2 Diabetes. It’s a 153-page paperback that takes you through the latest research on how the disease develops and explains why rapid weight loss can be so effective at reversing the condition in the early stages – which usually means during the first six years of a diagnosis.

“If people really do want to make it happen, then in the first few years of diagnosis, it’s almost universal that their health can be returned to normal,” says Taylor, who is professor of medicine and metabolism at Newcastle University. In one study, he found that nine out of 10 people with “early” type 2 diabetes were cured after losing more than 2 1/2 st (15kg). The book also explains who is at greatest risk and why some people who have a “normal” Body Mass Index (BMI) develop the disease, when many people who are more overweight – or even obese – do not. Taylor’s “Newcastle” weight loss programme is a clinically proven method of reversing early type 2 diabetes and his approach is currently being rolled out to people with the condition by the NHS. It involves cutting your calorie intake to 700-800 calories a day.

In the book, he explains how the people in his programme managed to do this – typically by consuming only slimming meal shakes and non-starchy vegetables, plus one cup of tea or coffee each day with skimmed milk – lost a life-changing amount of weight in just eight weeks. And how you can do the same, safely, at home. [..] One of Taylor’s most important new discoveries is that everyone has their own fat threshold: an individual level of tolerance for levels of fat in the body. “It’s a personal thing. It’s nothing to do with the sort of information that’s often provided about obesity, which is about average BMI and what the population is doing. The bottom line is, a person will develop type 2 diabetes when they’ve become too heavy for their own body. It doesn’t matter if their BMI is within the ‘normal’ range. They’ve crossed their personal threshold and become unhealthy.”

He is currently in the middle of research to find out whether there’s any way of discovering, via a blood test, when people are heading into this dangerous territory and their fat cells are putting out what he describes as “distress signals”. What we do know already is that our bodies start to have trouble controlling blood sugar when fat can no longer be stored safely under the skin and it spills over into the liver and then the pancreas. If these organs get clogged with fat, they stop functioning properly and that is when you develop type 2 diabetes.

Does this address only vaccine-related T cells?

Covid-19 Testing Turns To T Cells (Nature)

A diagnostic test based on sequencing long-lived SARS-CoV-2–specific memory T cells provides a complement to antibody testing for determining previous exposure to SARS-CoV-2. Following last month’s US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization for Adaptive Biotechnologies’ T-Detect COVID-19 test, routine T-cell testing has entered a new era. The Adaptive test involves laboratory-based next-generation sequencing to identify T cells that recognize SARS-CoV-2 antigens. The test is not intended for the diagnosis of active infection but is a complement to antibody tests used to confirm recent or previous infections. The lab-based procedure, which has a seven- to ten-day turnaround time, is now authorized for use on samples taken from individuals at least 15 days after the onset of symptoms.

Increasing interest is focused on the role of T-cell immunity in fighting SARS-CoV-2 infection and in providing resistance to re-infection. A new analysis of T cells from people who recovered from COVID-19 has confirmed that they remain active against three of the new SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern: B1.1.7, B.351 and B.1.1.248. The study, conducted by a team from the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Singapore-based biotech company ImmunoScape, will further boost confidence that the efficacy of vaccines developed against the original pandemic strain will not be overly compromised as these new variants—and others—spread more widely.

Until now, researchers have mostly relied on the use of lateral flow assay or enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) tests for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies to determine whether a person has been exposed to the virus. Understanding the neutralizing antibody response has been considered central to establishing protection against the virus. “It’s easy to test,” says Andrew Redd of NIAID, who led the recent study. Although critical, antibodies are part of a larger and incompletely understood set of humoral and cellular immune responses, which has received little attention. These include additional antibody functions, such as antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity, complement activation and phagocyte recruitment. Unravelling their contribution to SARS-CoV-2 immunity is an ongoing challenge. “There are assays to do that, it’s just complicated to do,” says Redd.

The same can be said for assaying T-cell-mediated immunity. The NIAID study relied on a complex laboratory test to identify T-cell epitopes specific to SARS-CoV-2, employing a combination of mass cytometry and combinatorial staining of peptide–major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-bound tetramers. The complexity of the assay and data generated necessarily confine the assay to use in specialist laboratories. “The data that it generates are massive. The analysis side of it is a big lift,” Redd says.

Interview with Dr Bhakdi (Schultz)

According to the UK Government’s figures, more than 1,100 people have died due to an adverse effect caused by one of the vaccines currently being rolled out via Emergency Use Authorisation. But Dr Bhakdi reveals that worse is yet to come, with manufacturers, he says, creating a false sense of security. “It’s so easy to manipulate the nano-particles,” he said. “All you need to do is take out one component, one lipid, and the vaccine will not be taken up by the cells any more. And then you have no side-effects. And you will have a vaccine that is well-tolerated. “That is what’s happening now with the mRNA vaccines, so the AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson and Sputnik will be removed from the market. So there will be a monopoly of the mRNA vaccines, which are being backed by Bill Gates.

“This plan was conceived years ago. Once this vaccine gets legally, fully approved, not approved for emergency use, but fully approved, no more risk analysis needs to be done. “Pfizer are going to submit an application for this in June. And the authorities have already released underground information that the approval will probably be given in October. When this happens, it means that every subsequent vaccine is automatically approved. They have to sign no more application, there will be no more trials, no more risk-benefit analysis. No more notification of side effects. “It’s such a nightmare. They can say, ‘well the care homes are overcrowded. India and South Africa…

“You know that with each subsequent vaccine the chances rise that you are going to kill people. That’s why they are starting to vaccinate children – they are going to show that the vaccine is tolerated by children – then they are going to use this wherever they want to. “Once that has come through, these guys have a free hand to do whatever they want, wherever they want. And no one can do anything about it. It’s so horrible. “How can people be so evil? How can people be so ignorant? It’s that combination of evil and ignorance that is making the world a living hell. And the only people who can do anything about it is us because we have to get the world around us to stand up and realise that they are being led to a living hell.

“It’s a devilish plan, satanic. But the very, very small chance we have is that they made a mistake, which was they thought that this vaccination programme would go through smoothly, as they were not aware that the adverse effects would be so severe and so widespread. “This is where they may trip if we can force them to turn back on the vaccination programme. Now there have been legal charges brought against the EU, for nullification against all the vaccines.”

“Trapped in their group-specific jargon, the two camps on Zoom literally couldn’t understand one another.”

The 60-Year-Old Scientific Screwup That Helped Covid Kill (Wired)

Early one morning, Linsey Marr tiptoed to her dining room table, slipped on a headset, and fired up Zoom. On her computer screen, dozens of familiar faces began to appear. She also saw a few people she didn’t know, including Maria Van Kerkhove, the World Health Organization’s technical lead for Covid-19, and other expert advisers to the WHO. It was just past 1 pm Geneva time on April 3, 2020, but in Blacksburg, Virginia, where Marr lives with her husband and two children, dawn was just beginning to break.

Marr is an aerosol scientist at Virginia Tech and one of the few in the world who also studies infectious diseases. To her, the new coronavirus looked as if it could hang in the air, infecting anyone who breathed in enough of it. For people indoors, that posed a considerable risk. But the WHO didn’t seem to have caught on. Just days before, the organization had tweeted “FACT: #COVID19 is NOT airborne.” That’s why Marr was skipping her usual morning workout to join 35 other aerosol scientists. They were trying to warn the WHO it was making a big mistake.

Over Zoom, they laid out the case. They ticked through a growing list of superspreading events in restaurants, call centers, cruise ships, and a choir rehearsal, instances where people got sick even when they were across the room from a contagious person. The incidents contradicted the WHO’s main safety guidelines of keeping 3 to 6 feet of distance between people and frequent handwashing. If SARS-CoV-2 traveled only in large droplets that immediately fell to the ground, as the WHO was saying, then wouldn’t the distancing and the handwashing have prevented such outbreaks? Infectious air was the more likely culprit, they argued. But the WHO’s experts appeared to be unmoved. If they were going to call Covid-19 airborne, they wanted more direct evidence—proof, which could take months to gather, that the virus was abundant in the air. Meanwhile, thousands of people were falling ill every day.

On the video call, tensions rose. At one point, Lidia Morawska, a revered atmospheric physicist who had arranged the meeting, tried to explain how far infectious particles of different sizes could potentially travel. One of the WHO experts abruptly cut her off, telling her she was wrong, Marr recalls. His rudeness shocked her. “You just don’t argue with Lidia about physics,” she says.

Morawska had spent more than two decades advising a different branch of the WHO on the impacts of air pollution. When it came to flecks of soot and ash belched out by smokestacks and tailpipes, the organization readily accepted the physics she was describing—that particles of many sizes can hang aloft, travel far, and be inhaled. Now, though, the WHO’s advisers seemed to be saying those same laws didn’t apply to virus-laced respiratory particles. To them, the word airborne only applied to particles smaller than 5 microns. Trapped in their group-specific jargon, the two camps on Zoom literally couldn’t understand one another.

War of Words Over Inflation Stirs Questions for the Fed (Judy L. Shelton)

Does it make sense, for a nation founded on the notion of individual liberty, equality under the law, and personal property rights, to allow a government agency to manipulate the value of the currency used by its citizens? Would it be better to have a stable monetary foundation to facilitate free-market outcomes, rather than empower the Federal Reserve to distort interest rates and dilute dollars in the service of government policy? It’s not as if we haven’t been here before. The question of whether rules-based monetary stability historically delivers better economic results in terms of increasing middle-class incomes than relying on the discretionary judgment of central bankers has been wholly analyzed and resolved.

In the 2015 Economic Report of the President issued under the Obama administration, a special section describes the period from 1948 to 1973 as the “Age of Shared Growth”—characterized by accelerating labor productivity, falling income inequality, and increased workforce participation. The report makes little mention of the fact that this period of remarkable growth, which increased living standards across all income levels, coincided with the existence of the Bretton Woods international monetary system under which the U.S. dollar was convertible into gold at a fixed price. The report does posit that if post-1973 productivity growth had continued at its pace from those previous 25 years, “incomes would have been 58% higher in 2013” and “the median household would have had an additional $30,000 in income.”

All of which should give pause to those who belittle the uneasiness felt by conservatives who fear that compromising monetary integrity not only violates founding principles but also economic rationality. And it’s not just conservatives per se, but rather an increasingly larger segment of the population expressing concerns about the wisdom of government officials and the correctness of government policies.

Druckenmiller: “There’s Been No Greater Engine Of Inequality Than The Fed” (ZH)

After his status-quo-shattering appearance on CNBC this week, during which he warned that “Fed policy is endangering the dollar’s reserve status,” billionaire fund manager Stan Druckenmiller spoke to The USC Marshall Center for Investment Studies’ Student Investment Fund Annual Meeting via Zoom, and shocked the on-lookers with his frank assessment of our current perceptions and realities. After The Bank of Canada sheepishly admitted this week that “some of the monetary policy tools it is using to address the COVID-19 pandemic, such as quantitative easing (QE), could widen wealth inequality,” Druckenmiller drops the proverbial hammer on all the hedged-speak (“could”), and blasts that

“I don’t think there has been a greater engine of inequality than the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States… so hearing the Chairman [Powell] talking about visiting homeless shelters is very rich indeed…” The outspoken fund manager went on to note that “everyone wealthy that I know is making fortunes” because “this guy [Powell] is printing money like there’s no tomorrow” adding that the kids is Harlem are not benefitting from money-printing but wealthy people are, exclaiming that “…for the life of me I can’t understand why the left is so excited about money-printing when all the data shows that the people who benefit from money-printing are rich people.”

“The odds-on bet is that we’re going to have inflation,” he continues: “and inflation is going to hurt poor people, again, a lot more than rich people.” How does this all end? “The asset bubble which [Powell] is blowing up into unbelievable proportions busts before the inflation ever really manifests itself, that’s what happened in the housing bubble in 08/09. We never really got to the inflation because the asset bubble burst… not dis-similar to what happened in 1929.” And Druck reminds us all, “there is no one, no group, that will be hurt more by a bust than the poor… they will be first in line to get screwed.”

‘$40 Billion’ Robinhood App Tries To Vault SEC Hurdles (NYP)

It’s a lot of money for a stock-trading app that’s supposedly free. Robinhood is slated to launch an initial public offering before summer’s end that could value the Silicon Valley-based company at $40 billion or more, people close to the underwriting group say. That would make it among the biggest deals of the year – and certainly the most anticipated as the day-trading app became a cultural phenom during the pandemic. A blowout IPO would be remarkable for a company created only in 2013 and which has survived its share of controversies. Last summer, I warned that Robinhood was luring in amateurs stuck at home during the COVID lockdowns who took on day trading as a sport. They would eventually lose their shirts trading stocks on its free and easy-to-use platform, and regulators would pounce.

The party, I predicted, wouldn’t end well and it almost didn’t. Amateur traders are the lifeblood of Robinhood and its user growth, and they lost lots of money on the wrong side of bets. Then came January’s meme – stock controversy, where clearing problems stymied trading of some high-volume stocks on the app, angering customers. The company s business model came under scrutiny. Congress held hearings about the episode following the wild swings in various stocks that traded over the platform, and the IPO that was planned for March was pushed off indefinitely. But for all the noise, the clients just kept coming – and the IPO is back on. The reason is simple, company execs tell me: Robinhood is printing money. Despite the hiccups, Robinhood added some 6 million additional new customers for its crypto platform alone in the first two months of the year.

Now the app’s explosive user growth has investors clamoring for a piece of the action, people close to the deal say. And mind you, underwriters and company officials are quietly calculating their $40 billion valuation for a product that founder Vlad Tenev essentially conjured up in his dorm room.

Italian Port Workers Refuse To Load Arms Shipment Destined For Israel (NA)

A syndicate of port workers in the Italian city of Livorno in Tuscany on Friday protested a weapons and explosives shipment after discovering it was destined for the Israeli port of Ashdod. “The port of Livorno will not be an accomplice in the massacre of the Palestinian people,” said L’Unione Sindacale di Base (USB). The USB added that the ship contained “weapons and explosives that will serve to kill the Palestinian population, already hit by a severe attack this very night, which caused hundreds of civilian victims, including many children”. A report by The Weapon Watch, a Genoa-based NGO that monitors arms shipments in European and Meditteranean ports, informed the syndicate of the destination of the ship and its contents. The NGO urged the Italian government to consider whether it was “suspending some or all Italian military exports to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict areas.”


“The Union on Saturday will also be in the square in Livorno in solidarity with the Palestinian population and to ask for an immediate stop to the bombings on Gaza and a stop to the ‘expropriations’ Palestinian homes that have lived under military occupation for years,” the USB said in a statement. Although the shipment eventually embarked its journey to Naples, as most other port workers continued to load the ship, other Italian workers’ groups have called for increased coordination between port workers to prevent shipment of weapons that could be used to bomb Gaza. Protests took place in various Italian cities this week, following Israeli forces’ attacks against Palestinians in Jerusalem and its escalation on the blockaded Palestinian Gaza Strip.

    Pursuant to the blood type debate that didn’t happen recently:

    Prior research has shown that the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 facilitates cell entry through
    interactions between ACE2 and its RBD, the protein on the surface of the virus that binds to
    host cells and is responsible for infection. In this study, the investigators hypothesized that
    the SARS-CoV-2 RBD might interact with other molecules, including blood group antigens.
    “It is interesting that the viral receptor-binding domain (RBD) only really prefers the type of
    blood group A antigens that are on respiratory cells, which are presumably how the virus is
    entering most patients and infecting them,” said study author Sean R. Stowell, MD, PhD, of
    Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.

    Another scientific nugget, “8th Day Treatment”  A conventional approach to early treatment is to suggest that intervention in the first 3 to 5 days is key to curbing the progression of the disease. Here, what Dr Chetty indicates is that there is a second and maybe even more important window for implementing early treatment, which is not mutually exclusive from the first window. It’s to aggressively begin treatment on the eighth day of the disease, with corticosteroids and anti-histamines, if the patient has not fully recovered yet from the disease.
      This symptoms oriented approach to treating COVID-19 helps to address the complex issue of risk stratification, and to answer the question of who to treat and who not to treat. For  Dr Chetty, the severity of COVID-19 is likely related to a hypersensitivity reaction to a previous exposure to SARS-CoV-2 or a similar virus, rather than just age or presence of comorbidities.
      According to Dr Chetty, this explains why there are younger people suffering from severe forms of the disease in the second wave of the pandemic. But this also provides for a therapeutic solution: even if no early antiviral treatment was given at first symptoms, or such anti-viral treatment did not prove effective, it’s still possible to treat aggressively the disease, on the eighth day, at the very beginning of the inflammatory phase, with a cocktail of corticosteroids and antihistamines. In most instances, this 8th day treatment can still be done on an outpatient basis…  “Very early on, I understood that the dyspnea that sets in seems to have a specific time in the disease. It was very quick in onset, there was differences in speed and severity, but it always seemed to present on the 8th day.”  
      “Some of the patients recovered by the 7th day and had none of the symptoms that occurred from the 8th day onwards.”
      “From very early on, I was of the opinion we were dealing with some kind of hyper-sensitivity reaction. … Quite early on, I started steroids and patients improved … and then I attempted antihistamines.”…  “Irrespective of that improvement, there were patients who developed dyspnea on the 8th day. The dyspnea that developed had no bearing on the severity in the initial 7 days.”
      “I had patients that had a sore throat on the first day, it resolved on the second, they spent the rest of the week perfectly fine, engaging in strenuous activities. And then on the 8th day, they started to notice in the morning the onset of dyspnea, and by the afternoon, were completely breathless and showing drops in their oxygen saturation.”
      “I started to treat this as an hypersensitivity reaction. I found that the antihistamines, particularly antihistamine 1 & 2 blockers, for the respiratory and gastro-intestinal tracts respectively, showed great benefit, immediately.” …  “My work showed that we are dealing with a bi-phasic illness: a viral illness during the first 7 days, and on the 8th day, some sort of trigger of hyper-sensitivity, that leads to a release of mediators, histamine being one of them.” …
      “My protocol quickly evolved to include ecotrin/aspirin and montelukast”  “With hyper-sensitivity, the most important thing is to start treatment early. The longer you leave it, the cascade of mediators will result in other sequalae and culminate into a cytokine storm.”
      “But like with other hyper-sensitivity reactions, if caught early, they are easy to cut in.”
      “So my entire focus became the eighth day. When patients came into my practice, I would Interrogate them about the onset of the symptoms,  the exact day they started feeling unwell.” …  “That allowed me to run certain testing, to see if I am dealing with a complete switch on that day. The common blood tests that I ran are CRPs and Interleukin 6. I found drastic changes from the 6th day to the 9th day. It showed something was happening at the time that was showing a spike in these inflammatory markers.” https://covexit.com/the-8th-day-therapy-for-covid-19/

    As per the Princess ship early on, and statements that Covid only gets bad in about 20% of population, (and then morbidity only if you have underlying and/or old). If Ivermectin is 80% effective in prophylactic or early stages, wouldn’t that mean basically anything is effective in those stages for the non-20% (which may or may not be related to blood type).?

    I keep asking because when some of the Ivermectin proponents make statements that people are willingly killing their children if they have them vaccinated and many other unproven statements, it really makes me hesitate to put my faith in it. Note that I did order quite a bit, also have horse paste on hand if I should come down with something in the meantime.

    Somebody help me here:

    Pfizer confirms that exposure during pregnancy can occur if a female is found to be pregnant and is environmentally exposed to the vaccine during pregnancy.

    The document below states that environmental exposure during pregnancy can occur if ‘a female family member or healthcare provider reports that she is pregnant after having being ‘exposed to the study intervention by inhalation or skin contact. Or if a male family member of healthcare provider who has been exposed to the study intervention by inhalation or skin contact then exposes his female partner prior to or around the time of conception’. See p.67

    Is this what some folks are referring to as ‘shedding’ of the spike protein that is produced after ‘vaccination’?

    Domestic Terrorism and the Attack on the U.S. Capitol
    Is this domestic terrorism?

    The federal definition of domestic terrorism describes domestic terrorists as Americans who commit
    ideologically driven crimes in the United States but lack foreign direction or influence. The Federal
    Bureau of Investigation (FBI) generally relies on two sources to define domestic terrorism. First, the Code
    of Federal Regulations characterizes “terrorism” as including “the unlawful use of force and violence
    against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment
    thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.” Second, 18 U.S.C. §2331(5) more narrowly
    defines “domestic terrorism.” This definition comes from Section 802 of the USA PATRIOT Act (P.L.
    107-56). According to 18 U.S.C. §2331(5), domestic terrorism occurs primarily within U.S. territorial
    jurisdiction, and involves
    (A) acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of
    any State;
    (B) appear to be intended—
    (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
    (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping…
    The participants’ actions seem to fit both definitions

    • Covid-19 Testing Turns To T Cells (Nature)
    Does this address only vaccine-related T cells?

    The T-Detect test is reportedly based on “extensive genomic characterization of the T-cell repertoires of people infected with SARS-CoV-2.” This should address all of the T-cell responses to a Covid infection, not just the vaccine-related responses.

    The test emerged from a longstanding collaboration between Adaptive and Microsoft to apply machine learning to define the ‘rules’ according to which T-cell receptors (TCRs) identify their cognate antigens. That, combined with extensive genomic characterization of the T-cell repertoires of people infected with SARS-CoV-2, allowed Adaptive to define a broad set of TCRs that are indicative of infection with the virus. The test sequences the total TCR repertoire present in a given sample and then calculates the relative enrichment for SARS-CoV-2–specific TCRs compared with predefined thresholds to determine the result, taking into account variation in individuals’ immune responses.

    https://www.nature.com/articles/s41587-021-00920-9

    As I mentioned in an earlier comment, the T-Detect test is being marketed directly to the public, with online ordering and no involvement of one’s doctor. The article in Nature says the “samples can be shipped at room temperature”, since they are “looking at the genomic DNA of T cells” instead of needing live cells for the tests.

    @Absolute Galore:
    The specific antiviral activities (multiple) of ivermectin are a separate matter from whether the innate-immune-system response is effective at preventing systemic illness, which is what protects about 81% of people.
    Your sister should assure vitamin-D adequacy by taking 5000 units/d long term, and if just beginning, taking 10,000 units per day for the first 2 months.
    There is more than one prophylactic protocol for ivermectin, but weekly seems to be ideal. Every 2 weeks is almost as good.
    Start with 1 mg per 11# body weight on days #2 nd #2, then take that same 1 mg per 11# once per week after that.

    Hi Dr. D I use a nano-particle silver product called Thank You Silver. The manufacturers went to the trouble of getting their silver certified by Canada’s health regulators, so it has a ‘natural product number’ registration, for what that’s worth.

    I’m getting somewhat suspicious of the goals of some of the freedom and democracy fighters that are climbing out if the woodwork lately. For some reason Julian Assange’s treatment did not motivate them, nor did changes in legislation that enabled our corporatocracy and media concentration of ownership. In Canada, Ezra Levant, hailed in the west, has long-standing affiliation with white nationalism. Randy Hillier in the east is a known racist and his constituents have picketed him to get him out of office. Yet these two chaps find themselves on the front lines of ‘protecting’ our democracy. What gives folks?

    Regarding your post, #75419, am I correct in understanding that it suggests that people with type A blood are more susceptible to Covid infection?

    My mother is type A-, my father O+, I am A+
    My mother fell ill with Covid, my father cared for her, but never had symptoms, later testing positive for antibodies. I fell sick 9 days after my mother. (And the only reason I have siblings is because my mother received rhogam after her first 3 births. I have only 3 siblings because my youngest sister was mistyped at birth, and all subsequent pregnancies miscarried.)

    Germ,

    A few weeks back my wife had her first Pfizer shot and the next day she woke up feeling lousy with a temperature, aches and pains, headache etc, in other words the same way she felt when she had Covid last year. My Covid symptoms were much milder than hers at the time, I just felt very tired, had a racing heart rate and my pee turned a really weird luminous yellow colour. So, imagine my surprise, when in the afternoon of the day after she got her jab, I suddenly felt very tired, my heart rate was up and my pee turned luminous yellow. The next day I felt fine again and, with the help of paracetamol, my wife was back to normal after lunch.

    My guess is that was due to viral shedding.

    The receptors that are relevant in the case of Blood Type A, are the associated proteins in the lung, not the one that shows on the red blood cells. The red blood cell blood type testing is a marker for the lung vulnerability. The lung cells of blood type A people are easier for SARS-CoV-2 to invade.
    This means they get COVID pneumonia easier, not that they catch COVID easier.

    @ Dr D and sumac.carol:

    Glad to hear your pet is responding to the antibacterial impacts of the silver, Carol.

    There are many uses for a good Nano-Silver in liquid form. My late husband cleared a nearly fatal lung infection by ingesting it after being on massive doses of antibiotics for several months. Intuitively, I knew the antibiotics were killing him, and the silver solution crossed my path – so I started putting it in his coffee, beer, and water. After his monthly x-ray showed amazing improvement, I fessed up and he went off the antibiotics and full on with the silver. He got BETTER after an 11 month battle, and a full year went by. We moved to NoCA and set up a brewing operation in a small town. (His red ale, stout, and other brews were off the charts). Sadly, I was married to the ultimate stubborn, older, smart, bad-boy, scientist/engineer whose Agent-orange influenced cancers killed him after all that. Of course I believe that the antibiotics strip-mined his immunity and eliminated all the good bacteria – this created the perfect environment for the slow-brewing cancers to spring to life un-assualted. When the cancer doctor tells you on your first visit (after the scans and bloodwork) that you have a month or two to live…well, it was a heavy blow, one that he never mentally recovered from. The local, high quality cannabis oil kept him out of pain and around a bit longer. He didn’t want to use the silver despite the fact that many folks who use it regularly are beating back cancers.

    Best to use a nano product with 10 ppm silver solution. There are several products on the market which use their own patented SilverSol technology to achieve this. Precious Waters Advanced Nano-Silver Dietary Supplement and Silver Biotics Daily Immune Support Supplement.

    Your wife might shed spike protein after vaccination, but not virus.
    I’m not sure how much spike protein gets shed.
    Nobody who has that information (Pfizer, et al) is sharing it.
    It is clear that people who get vaccinated can get more than one kind of allergic or immune system reaction.
    Those who have had COVID tend to get more, but many people will already have potential triggers to other elements of the vaccine than the spike protein, also.
    I have been advising people against a second shot in circumstances like this.
    It’s unnecessary and it may provoke an even greater adverse reaction upon the second challenge to the primed immune system.
    It’s really better not to do it again.
    (If she is convinced to accept it, anyway, she should dose with antihistamine, like levocetirizine 5 mg twice (more) per day for any such reaction. Have it ready.)

    The blame for the “Great Reset” needs to be squarely placed on COVID before the “reset” is felt, so it can proceed as planned.. John Ward elucidates.
    ​ ​This development was inevitable, because the ‘It wuz de covid wot dun it’ masquerade stood far less chance of flying if “authoritative” sources were saying that SarsCovid2 was no longer a serious threat. It is imperative for the directors of this sham that Covid19 should resurge and create a completely related dip in investment confidence prior to global disaster, not afterwards.
    ​ ​At the American Institute for Economic Research site yesterday I read this quote:
    “Covid19 hit a robust, many would say healthy world economy”
    ​ ​The AIER is one of the oldest and most respected nonpartisan economic research and advocacy venues in the world, founded under FDR in 1933. But that statement ranks among the greatest lumps of blue blithering codswallop I’ve ever read. It. simply. is. not. true. But I think we’re going to see a lot more rubbish on that scale; it is interesting that already, the business media are predicting massive inflation and counter-productive interest rate rises as the inevitable result of ‘panicky covid expenditure by politicians’. Same word – ‘panicky’ – in the mix, and I’ve seen it three times now in four days. Build Back Better. The Great Reset.
    The Covid factor. Greatest threat in peacetime history.

    ​Whitney Webb lays out specific agreements and terms between western central banking and social media regarding the very important management of perceptions during the upcoming financial collapse and reset. COVID-done-it, of course, but the triggering spark will be organized crime or state level cyber-attack/hacking by Lee Harvey Oswald or Castro’s Cuba.​..
    In November 2020, the World Economic Forum and Carnegie Endowment for International Peace coproduced a report that warned that the global financial system was increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks. Advisers to the group that produced the report included representatives from the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, the International Monetary Fund, Wall Street giants such as JPMorgan Chase, and Silicon Valley behemoths such as Amazon.
    The ominous report was published just months after the World Economic Forum had conducted a simulation of just such an event—a cyberattack that brings the global financial system to its knees—in partnership with Russia’s largest bank, which is due to jumpstart that country’s economic transformation by launching its own central bank–backed digital currency…
    The report then ominously concludes that “one thing is clear: it is not a question of if a major incident will happen, but when.“
    ​The report’s authors argue that, “in the event of a crisis,” such as a devastating cyberattack on the global banking system, “social media companies should swiftly amplify communications by central banks” so that central banks may “debunk fake information” and “calm the markets.” It also states that “financial authorities, financial services firms and tech companies [presumably including social media companies] should develop a clear communications and response plan focused on being able to react swiftly.” Notably, both Facebook and Twitter are listed in the report’s appendix as “industry stakeholders” that have “engaged” with the WEF-Carnegie initiative.
    ​ ​The report also asserts that premeditated coordination for such a crisis between banks and social media companies needs to take place so that both stakeholders may “determine what severity of crisis would necessitate amplified communication.” The report also calls for social media companies to work with central banks to “develop escalation paths similar to those developed in the wake of the past election interference, as seen in the United States and Europe.”
    ​ ​Of course, those “escalation paths” involved wide-ranging social media censorship. The report seems to acknowledge this when it adds that “quick coordination with social media platforms is necessary to organize content takedowns.” Thus, the report is calling for central banks to collude with social media platforms to plan out censorship efforts that would be enacted if a sufficiently severe crisis occurs in financial markets.

    Insider View: The Tragedy of the U.S. Deep State
    Pepe Escobar explains why Henry Kissinger must have lost the diplomatic plot.​..
    ​At a recent forum in Arizona, referring to the festering, larger than life Sino-American clash, Henry the K. said, “It’s the biggest problem for America; it’s the biggest problem for the world. Because if we can’t solve that, then the risk is that all over the world a kind of cold war will develop between China and the United States.”​…
    ​ Kissinger added U.S. policy toward China must be a mix of stressing U.S. “principles” to demand China’s respect and dialogue to find areas of cooperation: “I’m not saying that diplomacy will always lead to beneficial results…This is the complex task we have… Nobody has succeeded in doing it completely.”
    ​ ​Henry the K. actually must have lost the – diplomatic – plot. What Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are now involved in, full time, is to demonstrate – mostly to the Global South – how the American-enforced “rules-based international order” has absolutely nothing to do with international law and the respect of national sovereignty.​..
    ​ Mr. S., in a quite intriguing fashion, seems to be expressing the collective views of a number of extremely qualified people. Right from the start, he points out how Henry the K.’s observations explain today’s Russia-China-Iran triangle.
    ​ ​The first point that we make is that it was not Kissinger who created policy for Nixon, but the Deep State. Kissinger was just a messenger boy. In the 1972 situation the Deep State wanted to get out of Vietnam, which policy was put in place as containment of communist China and Russia. We were there based on the domino theory.​..
    ​The Deep State wanted to achieve a number of objectives in approaching Chairman Mao, who was antagonized by Russia. It wanted to ally in 1972 with China against Russia. That made Vietnam meaningless, for China would become the containing party of Russia and Vietnam no longer meant anything. We wanted to balance China against Russia. Now, China was not a major power in 1972 but it could drain Russia, forcing it to place 400,000 troops on their border. And our Deep State policy worked. We in the Deep State had thought it through, and not Kissinger. 400,000 troops on the Chinese border was a drain on their budget, as later Afghanistan became with over 100,000 troops, and the Warsaw Pact had another 600,000 troops.​..
    ​So where does Kissinger in Arizona fit in?
    ​ ​Now, Kissinger reflects the Deep State angst on the Russia-Chinese relationship and wants this split up for dear life. This is interestingly covered here by Kissinger. He does not want to tell the truth about balance of power realities. He describes them as “our values”, when the U.S. has no values left but anarchy, looting, and burning down hundreds of cities. Biden hopes to buy all these disenfranchised masses as money printing goes wild.
    ​ ​So we are back to Kissinger shocked at the new Russian-Chinese alliance. They must be separated.
    ​ ​Now, I do not agree with the balance of power intriguers in that morality or noble values should govern international relations, and not power. The U.S. has been following balance of power dreams since 1900 and now it faces economic ruin. These ideas do not work. There is no reason the U.S. cannot be a friend of Russia and China and the differences can be worked out. But you cannot get to first base as balance of power considerations dominate everything. That is the tragedy of our time.

    How to “stop it in the nose”???

    I spray my eyes, up my nose/each nostril (and inhale), and mouth (with an inhale) with nano-silver. I do this before indoor outings, work (I work in an art gallery), and flying on a plane.

    In late January, I spent an entire week bedside with my dying Mom. She was in a first-class nursing facility in Ohio, they “broke the rules” and I pushed for time – spent 4 hours there per day for 6 days straight. She beat covid (type O) while her type A husband had died of it on Christmas morning 2020. Besides the masking, I used a sprayer to deliver nano-silver directly into what I consider the entry points – eyes, nose, mouth. I did this before flying as well. It provided me with extra security – I felt like the silver was providing a protective barrier.

    I was also responsible for cleaning out their assisted living apartment (where they had both acquired covid from a caregiver). Used the silver water solution again – for extra protection.

    Thank You.

    While I don’t follow Canadian politics, I’d be careful of the recent fad in naming people “associated with.” It’s astonishingly misused. Some are “associated with” because as reporters they interviewed them. Others, they once worked at a taco stand. Or one is a breakoff group when the other went too far. For instance, Gavin McInnes is “Associated” with Vice News, as he’s a founder. He’s also “Associated” with the Proud Boys because they were joke-created by him to s–t-post. The two groups are considered opposites, and he’s presently “associated” with neither.

    What does any of that mean without telling the truth? Bob Ford is “Associated” with cocaine, but also with Justin Trudeau. (Whose father is ALSO associated with cocaine.) Life is complicated. They gotta fill me in in a way I can understand and trust.

    Knowing nothing, my guess is it’s exactly the way you read it. They roll out goldberg as the head of both factions. For instance, McInnes’ group the Proud Boys is now “Associated” by being a FBI informant. The head of BLM is also “associated” with the FBI. …Sounds a lot like the 1968 Democratic convention, where the FBI got involved in making trouble so the “right” guy would get elected…same as Time Magazine printed occurred in the 2020 election. That was right after the FBI got involved with MLK, telling him to kill himself or they’d out his mistress, thereby “Associating” themselves both with choosing President Nixon, and ending the Civil Rights movement.

    Gee, when all free groups are monitored or directed by the FBI, ain’t freedom grand? I’m sure Canada has the same or worse.

    Dr. D. previous thread:

    It’s also not black and white. What is miasma theory, medieval theory? That invisible “bad spirits” would be taken in via the breath and nose and make you sick. Where does it come from? Rot, swamps, dead things, sick people.

    … That’s germ theory. That’s exactly what we believe today, except instead of being invisible, entirely non-physical self-directed beings, they are invisible, untouchable, tangible self-directed beings. (…) People weren’t stupid before 1980, or 1800, or 1600, we just like mocking, belittling, and mis-attributing them.

    Miasma theory was good, in the sense that much disease was, is, transmitted ‘thru the air’ – areosols – e.g. Tuberculosis, long known. As is Covid-19 today.

    At first, the WHO did not consider, accept this, it was all about ‘droplets’ (e.g. ppl coughing on one another, smearing snot on door handles or whatever.. leading for ex. to in the UK having sex or hugging being practically banned..!), therefore handwashing, hand purification, social distancing.

    Masks were not advised. Then at some point WHO added ‘masks’ as a preventative because ‘areosols’ (particles that can float about for a long while in the air and travel round and about, thru ducts, pipes, blown about by air conditioning, or merely in a closed, poorly ventilated rooms, etc.) became an accepted means of tranmission, as there was *no other way* to explain ‘rapid spread.’

    See > Wired article, in top post.

    WHO officials prefer *low level advice* which doesn’t require much effort, expenditure, strictures, to implement. “Don’t disturb” the PTB is the guiding line. WHO can’t advocate the complicated stuff. They can’t advise strong / rigorous/ etc. measures, as they are bought up by Corps, who need a free hand.

    Ppl who said cov-19 ‘was airborne’ (unprecise) were vilified, they were thrown off boards, meetings, etc.
