The Science.

National Horror Story Hour (Kunstler)

In the early going of the War on Covid-19, The Science told its soldiers, the doctors, to jam ventilators down patients’ throats. Whoops, that didn’t work so well. The Science told everybody to fuggeddabowt Ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, Zinc, and Vitamin D. The Science told New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to stash Covid-19 infected patients in nursing homes. The Science told everybody don’t bother with masks, then to definitely wear masks, then to maybe not wear masks, then to wear double masks, then to get vaccinated and wear masks. Golly, what to believe? Some people began to think that The Science was full of shit — which is, let’s face it, a dangerous thought, and something which, thank Gawd, Facebook, Twitter, and Google corrected for us.

One thing The Science remained adamant about for a whole year was that Covid-19 did not come from the Wuhan, China, Institute of Virology, where-and-to-which, it just happened, one of the US government’s Knights of The Science, Dr. Anthony Fauci, was funneling US taxpayer-funded grant money for the purpose of doing gain-of-function research on exotic bat corona viruses. Gosh, why would you even do that? (Doesn’t gain of function = make it more deadly?)

Supposedly to gain knowledge so that mankind will be prepared to fight the emergence of deadly bat viruses that somehow manage to sneak into the human population at some future date. These things can happen, you know. We’ve already tangled with bird flu and swine flu, so deadly bat flu could hardly be out of the question. Of course, one of the dangers, when you are playing with deadly respiratory viruses in a lab, is that lab workers might inhale a virus or two and become infected with a specimen that The Science has engineered to be especially troublesome… but that was very unlikely, maintained Dr. Anthony Fauci, Chief Science Advisor to the President.

Until this month when Dr. Fauci conceded to a Senate Committee that perhaps an investigation was warranted to find out if, perchance, Covid-19 escaped from the Wuhan lab — since, it turns out, the Wuhan lab was such a sloppy-ass operation that its level of safety was comparable to an ordinary dentist’s office. It also turns out, according to a Wall Street Journal report this week, that three Wuhan lab workers did indeed need to be hospitalized in November 2019, which was around the time the bug got loose among the civilians of Wuhan City, while Chinese tourists and workers were still winging around the world on airplanes by the tens of thousands — prompting one to wonder whether, also perchance, this was something that the CCP wanted to happen? ¿Quién sabe?

Now that “safe and effective” vaccines are available against Covid-19, The Science is urging everybody to take it, pronto, and the government is assisting in the distribution and deployment of vaccinations even to the very borderline of coercing citizens into it by turning the “vaccine hesitant” into social pariahs. No restaurant meals or ballgames for you Science-offending trolls! How’s that working? According to Dr. Fauci, and several other Knights of The Science, more than half of the people on their staffs got vaxed voluntarily. More than half! Now that’s a ringing vote of confidence in The Science!

“..then tried to cover their tracks by reverse-engineering versions of the virus..”

Chinese Scientists Created Covid-19 In A Wuhan Lab – Study (DM)

An explosive new study claims that Chinese scientists created COVID-19 in a Wuhan lab, then tried to cover their tracks by reverse-engineering versions of the virus to make it look like it evolved naturally from bats. The paper’s authors, British Professor Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr. Birger Sørensen, wrote that they have had ‘prima facie evidence of retro-engineering in China’ for a year – but were ignored by academics and major journals. Dalgleish is a professor of oncology at St George’s University, London, and is best known for his breakthrough creating the first working ‘HIV vaccine’, to treat diagnosed patients and allow them to go off medication for months.

Sørensen, a virologist, is chair of pharmaceutical company, Immunor, which developed a coronavirus vaccine candidate called Biovacc-19. Dalgleish also has share options in the firm. The shocking allegations in the study include accusations of ‘deliberate destruction, concealment or contamination of data’ at Chinese labs, and it notes the silencing and disappearance of scientists in the communist country who spoke out. The journal article, exclusively obtained by and slated for publication in the coming days, is set to make waves among the scientific community, as the majority of experts have until recently staunchly denied the origins of COVID-19 were anything other than a natural infection leaping from animals to humans.

While analyzing COVID-19 samples last year in an attempt to create a vaccine, Dalgleish and Sørensen discovered ‘unique fingerprints’ in the virus that they say could only have arisen from manipulation in a laboratory. They said they tried to publish their findings but were rejected by major scientific journals which were at the time resolute that the virus jumped naturally from bats or other animals to humans. Even when former MI6 chief Sir Richard Dearlove spoke out publicly saying the scientists’ theory should be investigated, the idea was dismissed as ‘fake news.’

“ December 2017 Fauci unilaterally reversed an Obama administration 2014 ban on such experiments precisely because of the danger that a leak could cause a pandemic.”

Fauci Backed Virus Experiments ‘Despite Pandemic Risk’ (Lauria)

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, wrote in an academic paper nine years ago that he supported “gain-of-function” research on viruses despite admitting a “remote” possibility that such “important work” could lead to a global pandemic if such a fortified virus escaped from a lab, The Australian newspaper reported on Friday. In October 2012, Fauci wrote a paper for the American Society for Microbiology, in which he said: “In an unlikely but conceivable turn of events, what if that scientist becomes infected with the virus, which leads to an outbreak and ultimately triggers a pandemic? Many ask reasonable questions: given the possibility of such a scenario – however remote – should the initial experiments have been performed and/or published in the first place, and what were the processes involved in this decision?

Scientists working in this field might say – as indeed I have said – that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks. It is more likely that a pandemic would occur in nature, and the need to stay ahead of such a threat is a primary reason for performing an experiment that might appear to be risky.” The newspaper’s revelation comes as President Joe Biden announced this week an investigation into whether the coronavirus that causes Covid-19 leaked out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV)’s lab in Wuhan, China, where the pandemic first broke out. Fauci, who had dismissed that possibility and insisted the virus had natural transmission from another species to humans, on May 11 reversed himself, saying at a conference that he was “not convinced” of the coronavirus’ natural origins and said authorities needed to learn “exactly what happened.”

[..] in December 2017 Fauci unilaterally reversed an Obama administration 2014 ban on such experiments precisely because of the danger that a leak could cause a pandemic. The Australian quoted former Trump administration officials as saying that no one at the Trump White House knew that Fauci had lifted Obama’s ban. “It kind of just got rammed through,” one official told the newspaper. “I think there’s truth in the narrative that the (National Security Council) staff, the president, the White House chief-of-staff, those people were in the dark that he was switching back on the research.”

“ of it break off and create mutated versions of themselves. The mutated versions then enter the body and trigger the blood clots.”

Broken Parts Of COVID-19 Vaccines Mutate To Trigger Blood Clots (GGI)

German scientists have found out how the broken parts of Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines branded as Covishield in India mutate to trigger blood clots in recipients. Scientists say the vaccine is sent into the cell nucleus instead of surrounding fluid, where parts of it break off and create mutated versions of themselves. The mutated versions then enter the body and trigger the blood clots. Two vaccines, one manufactured by Oxford-AstraZeneca branded as Covishield in India and the other by Johnson & Johnson, have been linked to blood clotting disorders, particularly among women under the age of 50.

Earlier, German scientists found the exact 2 step process how the COVID-19 vaccine causes blood clots in recipients. They describe a series of events that has to happen in the body before the vaccines create these large clots. Now, researchers at Goethe-University of Frankfurt and Ulm University, in Helmholtz, have found the problem which they say lies in the adenovirus vector — a common cold virus used so both vaccines can enter the body. Scientists believe that in some people, the immune system sees the vaccine as a threat and over-produces antibodies to fight it. These lead to the formation of clumps in the blood, which can become deadly if the clots move towards vital organs and cut off supply.

European Regulators OK Pfizer Vaccine For Children 12-15 (AP)

The European Medicines Agency on Friday recommended that the use of the coronavirus vaccine made by Pfizer and BioNTech be expanded to children ages 12 to 15, a decision that offers younger and less at-risk populations across the continent access to a Covid-19 shot for the first time. The vaccine was the first one granted authorization across the European Union when it was licensed for use in anyone 16 and over in December. So far, about 173 million doses of the shot have been administered in the 27-nation bloc, about three quarters of the total given. “Extending the protection of a safe and effective vaccine in this younger population is an important step forward in the fight against this pandemic,” said Marco Cavaleri, who heads the EMA body that reviewed the vaccine.

The EU regulator had received the necessary data to authorize the vaccine for younger teens and found it to be highly effective against infection, he said. In a study involving 2,000 adolescents in the United States, none of those who received the vaccine got Covid-19, compared with 16 in a control group who received a placebo, said Cavaleri. “The vaccine was well tolerated and the side effect in this age group were very much similar (to) what we’ve seen in young adults and not raising major concern at this point in time,” he added. The EMA decision needs to be rubber-stamped by the European Commission, and individual national regulators must decide whether the vaccine will be administered to children under 16.

The recommendation follows similar decisions by regulators in Canada and the US last month, as rich countries slowly approach their vaccination targets for adults and look to immunize as many people as possible. Researchers will continue to monitor the shot’s long-term protection and safety in the children for another two years.

“Isn’t the first question to be asked “how dangerous is it if I say no and get infected, assuming I haven’t been already?” It should be.”

For The Young: Choose Wisely (Denninger)

Most young people — healthy people under the age of 30 — have no symptoms of significance associated with getting infected with Covid-19. They either get a mild head cold that could be mistaken for anything else or no symptoms at all. Obviously, if you don’t know you are sick or think it’s allergies, asthma or whatever because you never run a fever or really are significantly ill you have no reason to get tested, no reason to believe you had it, and no doctor sees you. You do not show up in the data but you did indeed have Covid-19. Some young people get what seems like a flu and very, very few get really sick or die.

If you had Covid, whether you were tested positive or not, you are presumably protected. The science is that the minimum protection is about 84%. This is a minimum number because not everyone who got it and seroconverted silently was known. This study was among health-care workers who obviously have very high risk as they’re around actively sick people all the time, and they were tested regularly so many “silent” infections were caught, where yours probably wouldn’t have been. Further a recent study funded by Fauci’s NIH showed that most people pick up memory of the infection in their bone marrow (incidentally, getting people to volunteer for that had to be quite a trick; the operation to get the marrow to test is quite painful, which is why the size was very small) which means that protection from at least moderate disease is likely to last decades if not your entire remaining life.

In short there is no science that says you should take the shot if you’ve already had Covid. There are plenty of people saying that but they cannot point to any scientific study that shows you actually lose protection from prior infection any faster than you do from the shots themselves. This is why someone who had the measles does not take a measles shot; you’re presumably protected by fighting off the infection. But what if you haven’t had Covid-19? What do you decide if you’re in that 0-25 age group and someone is trying to demand you get the jab, or all your friends are doing it? Isn’t the first question to be asked “how dangerous is it if I say no and get infected, assuming I haven’t been already?” It should be.

How many people will end up still wearing masks and getting “vaccinated”?

Oklahoma House Bans Mask Mandate, Vaccine Requirements in Schools (ET)

The Oklahoma House has passed a bill banning mask mandates in public schools and requirements for students to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The bill, SB 658, passed the state House by 76–18 and was sent to Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt on May 26. The state Senate had passed the bill by 38–8 a day earlier. “For the sake of children throughout the state, I’m glad this bill is one step closer to becoming law,” Republican state Sen. Rob Standridge said in a statement. “With this legislation, vaccine passports for Oklahoma students will not exist.” Standridge is also one of the authors of the bill. SB 658 would prohibit the boards of education of all public school districts and technology center school districts—including those of higher education—from requiring vaccination against COVID-19 as “a condition of admittance to or attendance of the school or institution.”

It would also prevent vaccine passports or similar documentation from being required. Standridge explained during the session that the COVID-19 vaccine is different from other vaccines that are currently required, like those against diphtheria or tetanus, because it’s “still under emergency use authorization,” News9 reported. SB 658 further forbids implementing a mask mandate for students who haven’t received COVID-19 vaccines. Exceptions include when the governor declares an emergency or after the boards of education consult with their local county health department, but the mask mandate must be reconsidered at each regularly scheduled board meeting.

State after state.

Georgia Bans Mask Mandates In Public Schools (JTN)

Gov. Brian Kemp signed an executive order Friday that bans masks mandates inside Georgia public schools. The order also lifts most existing COVID-19 restrictions in the state. It blocks schools from implementing policies that would require students and staff to wear masks. Students and teachers still can wear masks if they choose, but they would be optional. “Georgians don’t need the government telling them what their children should do,” Kemp tweeted Thursday. Six Cobb County parents who sued the Cobb County School District over the district’s mask mandate have dropped the lawsuit in response to Kemp’s announcement.

Kemp and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms had a public dispute last summer over Kemp’s order that restricted local governments from issuing face covering rules that were more restrictive than his. Kemp filed a lawsuit against Atlanta officials in July after the city enacted a face mask-wearing mandate when his executive order encouraged but did not require face coverings. Kemp later abandoned the lawsuit and issued an executive order that allowed certain local governments to issue the mandate. The Georgia Department of Public Health reported Friday the lowest COVID-19 hospitalizations in the state since the beginning of the pandemic. State records show 99 people were hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms. According to the state’s daily status report, 9.9% of the tests returned were positive Friday for COVID-19.

Playing footsie with anti-discrimination laws.

Employers Get Green Light To “Incentivize” Workers To Get Vaccinated (ZH)

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has just quietly given American companies the green light to to do whatever it takes to “incentivize” American workers to accept the coronavirus vaccine. As vaccinations continue to slow, and states beef up incentives including lotteries and cash prizes to any adults who agree to get vaccinated who haven’t already, the EEOC has just issued some long-awaited guidance on how far companies can go in pushing workers to be vaccinated. Some companies, including Delta Air Lines, have said they won’t hire anyone who hasn’t already been vaccinated. The updated guidelines say employers may offer incentives for employees to provide documentation showing they have been vaccinated since requesting this proof “is not a disability-related inquiry” or an “unlawful request” under federal anti-discrimination laws.

What’s more, companies who choose to offer the vaccine on-site, or who incentivize employees to get vaccinated elsewhere, can’t offer perks or punishments substantial enough to be “coercive”. The questions, which were by far the most important pieces of the new guidance, were tucked away at the bottom of the update, making the changes an easy thing for reporters to miss before a long holiday weekend.

K.16. Under the ADA, may an employer offer an incentive to employees to voluntarily provide documentation or other confirmation that they received a vaccination on their own from a pharmacy, public health department, or other health care provider in the community? (5/28/21) Yes. Requesting documentation or other confirmation showing that an employee received a COVID-19 vaccination in the community is not a disability-related inquiry covered by the ADA. Therefore, an employer may offer an incentive to employees to voluntarily provide documentation or other confirmation of a vaccination received in the community. As noted elsewhere, the employer is required to keep vaccination information confidential pursuant to the ADA.

K.17. Under the ADA, may an employer offer an incentive to employees for voluntarily receiving a vaccination administered by the employer or its agent? (5/28/21) Yes, if any incentive (which includes both rewards and penalties) is not so substantial as to be coercive. Because vaccinations require employees to answer pre-vaccination disability-related screening questions, a very large incentive could make employees feel pressured to disclose protected medical information. As explained in K.16., however, this incentive limitation does not apply if an employer offers an incentive to employees to voluntarily provide documentation or other confirmation that they received a COVID-19 vaccination on their own from a third-party provider that is not their employer or an agent of their employer.

Employers including Dollar General, Aldi and Instacart have already moved to reward their employees for receiving the Covid-19 vaccine by offering paid time off and cash stipends. And in April, President Joe Biden called on every employer to offer paid time off for workers to recover from potential vaccine side effects.

But independent it is not.

The Fed Keeps Expanding Its Powers; That’s Making Some People Nervous (Cox)

Bernanke’s successor, Janet Yellen, worked closely with Geithner. Yellen’s successor and current Chairman Jerome Powell had a tight relationship with former President Donald Trump’s Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. Now, the dynamic has gotten even more intense. Powell and Yellen, who worked together on the Fed for nearly six years, now run the Fed and Treasury respectively. That’s never happened before, and it’s what has some on the Street nervous that the Fed may be tasked with implementing the White House’s economic program. The Fed has long been considered immune to outside pressures, free to move interest rates and otherwise implement policy in the way it deems most appropriate, outside of political concerns. The fear is that the Powell-Yellen dynamic could change that.

“You have the current Treasury secretary who was the boss of the current Fed chairman not so long ago. There’s obviously a very close relationship there,” said Jim Paulsen, chief investment strategist at the Leuthold Group. “They’re still in lockstep. They’re espousing very similar philosophies that go beyond tradition.” Indeed, there’s not much difference between where Powell and Yellen stand on most matters germane to their respective roles. Powell has committed to keep interest rates low until the economy is farther along on the road to recovery, and Yellen has remarked on the pivotal role low rates play so the Biden administration can finance the trillions in spending that it wants. Yellen has been a leading advocate for that muscular fiscal policy, and Powell has said there are economic problems that low interest rates and money printing can’t solve.

But it’s their positions on social issues that have drawn much of the negative attention. The Fed has in the past several months stressed the importance of banks’ planning for climate change-related events. The central bank’s leading advocate for that cause has been Governor Lael Brainard, a close Yellen ally when they served on the Fed together. Along with that, Yellen has been outspoken on the importance of spreading economic benefits evenly at a time when the lowest earners have suffered the worst during the pandemic-era shutdowns. At the same time, the Fed last August changed its mission statement to say it is no longer focused merely on maximizing employment but now has a “a broad-based and inclusive goal” that goes to disparities in how gains are distributed.

“You certainly see some things that at a minimum are very different than how we’ve run things in the past, and it very much gets to the heart of independence in the Fed from overwhelming political influence,” Leuthold’s Paulsen said. “The most egregious departure from the past is the adoption by the Federal Reserve of several which I think many people would consider political goals or a political agenda of the current administration,” he continued. “They’re suddenly going far beyond a macro backstop for the cyclical economy to very much micro-oriented policy implementation.”

    Another rabbit hole …

    Dr Pierre Gilbert in 1995:
    “In the biological destruction there are the organized tempests on the magnetic fields. What will follow is a contamination of the bloodstreams of mankind, creating intentional infections. This will be enforced via laws that will make vaccination mandatory. And these vaccines will make possible to control people. The vaccines will have liquid crystals that will become hosted in the brain cells, which will become micro-receivers of electromagnetic fields where waves of very low frequencies will be sent. And through these low frequency waves people will be unable to think, you’ll be turned into a zombie. Don’t think of this as a hypothesis. This has been done. Think of Rwanda”

This is why we have free speech.

    Same as others Fauci In 2012: Gain-Of-Function Research ‘Worth Risk Of Lab Accident Sparking Pandemic’

    Every word.

    Now put pieces together: magnet challenge. His 1994 statement, which even then they must have had experimental proof of, and the slap-leather fury for 5G. Huiwei. Wuhan being a hub of Huiwei, the most 5G’d city on earth. Reports America — or some faction therein — was involved in hack attacking Wuhan’s 5G.

    Can I prove it? No. Why would I need to? I don’t have to know there’s a cliff-pusher roaming around to tell you to stop playing around on the cliff. Use your head.

    As an emphasis, now that it’s fashionable,
    I want to point out that just like they can’t prove a negative — without looking, AND without asking the question

    “Oh my god: I didn’t realize what her job is.

    The NYT’s COVID reporter is saying we should stop talking about the lab leak theory — *even if it’s how COVID entered humans *– because that theory (unlike, I guess, the wet market theory) is racist.” –Award-winning reporter Glenn Greenwald, who is also gay, so he is allowed to have *some* opinions, unlike the rest of the country.

    Or as Jimmy Dore has said, “They Stigmatize anyone who has different opinions that you. You should be ALLOWED to ask any question at all times.” And “Think about how ridiculous it is that there are ‘sides’ too — there should be one side, that is, ‘Hey let’s find out what happened so that this doesn’t happen again ever.” That there are people who are AGAINST this, and taking sides.

    So my point is, just as we don’t know it definitely, absolutely — and as Taibbi said, journalistic malpractice in shouting, as known, knowable FACT that it DIDN’T come from a lab, we also are not likely to know, as a fact that it DID come from a lab. It’s very difficult to prove.

    Now I agree with scientists (huh??? what???) that look at the DNA anomalies that strongly indicate this is nowhere, not likely possible to be natural, sure. BUT WE DON’T KNOW. That’s life. So far, if this were a jury, I would convict on the evidence, overcoming reasonable doubt. But that doesn’t make it TRUE. Fact-checkers cannot Fact-Check — It’s IMPOSSIBLE — as top reporter Taibbi because when there is news, it just happened, and no one KNOWS what the facts are yet, because we only heard the very first reports. THAT’S WHY WE HAVE NEWS. That’s why unfolding stories go on and on, investigating. We may never know, but absolutely you’re vanishingly unlikely to know in the first 12 hours. To pretend you do, then reverse, then reverse again, because you beat a thousand drums that you KNOW, safe in your studio apartment in Williamsburg, having never left, “Liveblogging Arab Spring, From my living room!!!” and anyone who asks questions must be destroyed, only entirely discredits you, your paper, and your whole profession, AS IT SHOULD, because you are reporting things you saw, what was said at a particular point, by and to a particular reporter, as immutable, down-from-the-mountain God-like “fact.” You don’t know. You’re a fallible human. You ain’t all that. Get a grip. Especially when you were wrong about Clinton, Bush, Obama, Hillary, Trump, Clapper, the CIA, Iraq, F-Stan, and everything else since before you were in grade school.

    So while I’m glad we can finally ASK the question in public, Fauci and China can investigate themselves for planet-wide mass-murder *again*, neither is it true that it DID happen.

    And ESPECIALLY happen from Wuhan and not Langley, or Italian services, or out of Tokyo as a preemptive attack, or god-knows. We DON’T know. That’s why we ask questions. When the get answers THOSE answers will probably also be lies, misdirections, cut short. That’s why there’s free speech, since everyone — or perhaps reporters particularly — have forgotten, being too busy butt-sniffing their Vassar-graduating, Monaco-vacationing peers.

    Back to the headline: Fauci said he wanted bioweapons research real bad, even if if killed every human on earth. He then funded it, both legally, and later, illegally, using fronts and pass-throughs, hiding and moving the scientists required to insure bioweapons went on. He then denied what he and everyone knew was a fact, then investigated himself, with China, and lied again.

    I missed this as earlier, milktoast Tim Pool saying over, getting on the bandwagon of, “Fauci Lied: People Died” over and over again. “He is a dangerous, TV-only doctor” again and again. I think you’re losing them. Tim is pro-mask and doesn’t believe any criminals ever talk to each other or lie. And that was last week before this even broke.


    Thanks Germ great post of Dr.Hodkinson yesterday.And the good doctor gives us a WEAPON to threaten authority with. Notice of liability. Then the burocrats can’t snivel out of it by pleading ignorance .

    Dr. D

    Dore, Taibbi, “I can’t get over the lack of intellectual curiosity that is allowed in journalism. Anybody who has a question that questions any establishment narrative, you are immediately branded a kook, and a crazy, all id did was share the (actual) side effects of my vax, and they branded me an anti-vaxxer.” …Yes, taking the vaccine now makes you anti-vax, because reason is dead, and hell is the absence of reason. We mut have this, because it’s the place we can get furthest from God. A always equals but also is opposite to A, so that I can ALWAYS ALWAYS attack, hurt, mock, punish, hate, and kill anyone, everyone, always, and EGO.

    “We(journalists) are only giving you our best guess, so the worst thing you could possibly do at the start of a story like this is instantly start ruling things out, and declaring somethings facts and some things conspiracies, and on top of being sanctimonious and obnoxious about it. YOu have to have some humility with the job of journalism, I think that’s crucial to how you do this job is that you have to know you don’t know anything, and you have to be suspicious of everyone you talk to, and over time things get revealed.”

    And I’d add, also know you’re not the star. Nobody cares about you, who you are, Mr. Journalist. Hide in a corner. We want to know nothing about you, but about the people you’re interviewing.

    All this was standard, boring journalism for generations. “He said” not “He furiously spat his bizarre conspiracy theory from Satan, without evidence”. “So and so said this, the documents said that.”, not “We asked some random officials who agreed with me, then spent the next six paragraphs ‘debunking’ equal officials who dared NOT agree with me.”

    Taibbi continues: “They did it backwards at the start: they declared a Truth, and now they’re in this backpedal mode which is a complete catastrophe for the business and the country.”

    Just the facts, ma’am. It’s not that hard.

    Taibbi: “That’s by design, Manufacturing Consent (Chomsky) lays out how the business works: if you have intellectual curiosity, if you’re the kind of person who is inclined to have an original thought, you just don’t get promoted in journalism…all those people wash out of the business relatively early.”

    Because the Owners pick the Editors, the Editors pick the stories and reporters who DO WHAT THEY’RE TOLD. And they’re told — as Chomsky says — to “Manufacture Consent”, on behalf the Establishment, the same owners and their golfing pals paying for favors.

    If you have a wrong opinion, “They just quietly move you in the company, and you just stop being on the front page, and before you know it, you’re not working at the NY Times anymore. And the people who do rise in the business are the people who tend to be conformists, intellectually uncurious, and they have that herd mentality.”

    Dore: “So the least curious amongst us are the ones charged with bringing us the news. That’s how the filtering works (at the NY Times).

    “I remember when CNN announced ahead of the (2020) campaign, that they were hooking up with, so that they could fact check politicians’ statements. And I’m like, ‘It never dawned on Jake Tapper or anybody at CNN that THEY’RE supposed to be the fact-checking organization….??? That they have to go find an APP to figure out how to fact check? What does that say about the news media?”

    Taibbi: “All that is a just a marketing campaign…the public just doesn’t believe what we report anymore. To deal with that the public has begun to clue in to the fact that a lot of corporate media has been politicized, they started dredging out fact checking organizations as a way of saying ‘Hey we’re really into facts. We’re into factuality and we have this shiny thing we even named ‘fact-checking.’ But you’re right: journalism itself is fact-checking, you shouldn’t need a separate thing. That’s YOUR job. It’s ridiculous.”

    …To do your job for you because you won’t, or haven’t in years. And no one even notices. Inside or outside the industry.

    “They’re not specialists, they have to get it out that day and they don’t have time to do this fact checking. …Once you get past names, dates...the worst kind of misinformation in journalism is to be too sure about anything.” That’s especially true with technical issues, or where official sources seem invested in eliminating discussion of alternative scenarios.

    Dore: “I don’t mind that you repeating the government narrative or the establishment narrative, I know you’re going to do that, but the fact that you would shame people that have questions, which is almost the definition of a journalist, is to question the official and establishment narrative, ABOUT EVERYTHING, and you turn doing that into something disgusting and nefarious, and shamed, and that’s the thing I can’t get over.”

    Taibbi: “Yeah, a lot of this has to do with politics. …The press has interpreted this that anyone who criticizes the news media is right-wing, is a lunatic, is a conspiracy theorist, and they should be shamed. We’re the GOOD people. They’ve gotten high on themselves. When people don’t believe you…it’s YOUR fault. You lost somebody’s trust.” Ego. TDS. TRUTH Derangement Syndrome. And as Ego, they don’t, can’t notice.

    Taibbi says, “They’re out of touch” but then they react in these weird ways that are way MORE out of touch, not getting back on track and re-establishing trust. Similar to the last 5 years,”If you don’t like my movie, — not like it, LOVE it, ADORE it, LAUD it — you’re a racist incel” not that the movie stinks, stinks, stinks.

    They’re dismissive and they’re aligning themselves with official sources (i.e. the Establishment, Billionaires) because they see themselves as being part of that group now, arrayed against the general public, the opposite of what they should be.” That is, the Ruling Class. Boy will they be surprised. Learn to code. #OppositeLand, as it spreads everywhere. As it is only, merely, #AntiLogos. AntiReason, AntiOrder, AntiRules AntiLogic, and especially AntiWork.

    Anyway, more there, but these are the highlights. One interview, one day. On a day of he greatest failure of media and curiosity ever, on the heels of the SECOND greatest failure of media and ego ever: Russia, on the heels of the THIRD greatest failure ever: the Election, on the heels of the FOURTH greatest election, Global Financial Crisis, on the heels of the FIFTH greatest failure, Iraq, on the heels of the SIXTH greatest failure…

    Every hour of every day of my life.

    MSM journalists? They better start booking into their nearest homeless shelter and getting signed up with the local food bank because nobody is ever going to read their stuff ever again. You’ll see them wondering around glassy-eyed mumbling about diversity and intersectionality and cross over to tbe other side of the street to avoid being asked for any small change. Not for you pal.

    Big Setbacks Propel Oil Giants Toward a ‘Tipping Point’

    From Houston to The Hague, environmentalists, fund managers and investors won battles against influential fossil fuel companies this week.
    The victories opened new fronts in a growing effort to force the world’s coal, oil and gas companies to address their role in the climate crisis

    You think lockdowns were a drag? Good luck trying to stop oil. Don’t worry, your wish will arrive soon enough,when we can’t afford to squeeze it from the earth any longer. “We have the technology. We just need the political will.” Uh huh. Thanks Al Gore. And thanks for inventing the Internet, which conservatively uses about 420 Terawatt hours per year (terrawatt being 10 to the power of 12)..

    Eager Teens Give Needed Boost to U.S. Vaccination Campaign
    More than 2.5 million tweens and teens have gotten their first shot, making up about a quarter of all new vaccinations in recent weeks.

    Dutchess County, N.Y., is at a high risk. Your risk is minimal if you are vaccinated. ›
    Finally went down from Extremely High just recently. So helpful! Science!

    Covid’s Deadliest Phase May Be Here Soon
    A new, more transmissible variant could devastate countries without vaccines
    We’re good, “eager” kids are lining up. Now we can do our famous generous American schtick and start worrying about all the people that can’t get a vaccine. Especially since they could be breeding grounds for worse disease, according to The Science..

    Why Are So Many of My Fellow Health Workers Unvaccinated?
    Medicine must address vaccine holdouts among us. Here’s how.
    And firefighters, and cops. Ie, “frontline heroes.” I guess they’ve seen enough…to not want to get the vaccine. Hmmmm. Not good optics. Maybe they will get a special lottery?

    Bio-distribution data is in:

    So, so bad.


    OK can all you fine American commentators who make this site so informative and enjoyable give me a hand please. Not to put too fine a point on it ,what the ….. is going on ? Why the big sea change? Who is putting the screw on the politicians? Is it the Marine generals?

    Doc Robinson

    Germ: “Bio-distribution data is in…Clearly shows nano-lipid particles from BioNTech vaccine bio-concentrating in ovaries, uterus and lymph nodes over 24 hrs.”

    More context: That data is evidently from a study done on rats which were injected with a 50 microgram dose (while much larger humans are getting vaccinated with 30 microgram doses.)

    See page 16/23 of this document:

    So Pfizer does research in Chinese? That’s handy. Those rats were pretty stupid to take the vaccine before the human trials were finished to steal a joke posted earlier here.


    The best explanation of how each vaccine works I’ve yet to find. In French but with English subtitles.

    After I sent this link to friend she replied that it was from a university that had lost funding of their vaccine. As if that automatically made the information suspect. Some people are hopelessly scared.

    Fauci Faust’s clusterfu*k proformance has exposed US MIC Bio-weapons research which not only violates US law but international agreements and understanding about developing War Crimes level weapons systems.

    Fauci Faust is our low-rent version of Fritz Haber

    Fritz Haber was a German chemist who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1918 for his invention of the Haber–Bosch process, a method used in industry to synthesize ammonia from nitrogen gas and hydrogen gas. This invention is of importance for the large-scale synthesis of fertilizers and explosives.

    Fritz also developed poison gas for the German army in WWI.

    Fritz’s lab in the 20’s also developed Zyklon B. How special!

    When Fritz’s wife found out he developed and actually went to the field test of poison gas in the trench and how well it killed Allied soldiers, she waited for him to come home after the field test and shot herself to death, in front of him, to make her disapproval a little more dramatic.

    Dave Note

    The other point of irony with Fritz Haber and role in developing Zyklon B is that Fritz was Jewish.

    Life is stranger than fiction.


    @ Gjango:

    Ho Lee Fuk!
    Sum Ting Wong!

    Dave Note

    The development of the Haber-Bosch process to make synthetic fertilizer out of fossil fuel allowed the over population of the planet.

    It allowed gross overshoot of natural resource to the point where the 8 Billion currently living on the Late Great Planet Earth would perish within a growing season or two without cheap fossil fuel, which is coming to an end.


    Thanks. So it’s just that they can’t put the toothpaste back into the tube then.

    Re: is Ivermectin the new Penicillin?

    Question for J.D. Is it possible Ivermectin’s effectiveness will eventually be compromised like Penicillin due to indiscriminate use? I now have a nice stash courtesy of Kachhela. Got to me almost exactly 2 weeks from date of order! Now, what to do with my apple-flavored horse paste….

    Specifically, if one starts taking it as a prophylactic, can it lose effectiveness? How long should it be taken strictly as a preventative? (And if you should still catch Covid while taking it, you just go to the medicinal dosage?) And probably not necessary in the summer?

    Anyway, very glad to have something since I will not be getting the vaccine. Though I will still have to deal with the craziness of being labeled an anti-vaxxer.

    I think we should rename our little visitor “General Faucci’s Chef Special GOF Wuhan NanoNoodles with Special MUSA Sauce”.

    I read that we are not only sending in the FBI and CIA and no doubt many other letters, but we are going to use massive super computing to try to figure out if the SARs virus that had its epicenter in Wuhan, where there was a lab experimenting with GoF on SARs viruses, came from said lab. Where is Sherlock when you need him?


    @ Django – one of the great blooper moments in TV history!


    “Natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2 appears to confer a protective effect for at least a year, which is similar to the protection reported in recent vaccine studies. ”


    Not good …

    Dave Note

    At Clusterfuck Nation, Jim said

    “…the Wuhan lab was such a sloppy-ass operation that its level of safety was comparable to an ordinary dentist’s office…”

    I read way back that the ‘Wet-market” in Wuhan is about 250yds from the Wuhan lab and that at other research facilities in China, lab worker would sell ‘excess lab animals’ into the local food markets to pick up some extra cash on the side.

    Maybe the vector for the virus out of the Wuhan lab was ‘excess lab animals’ that were unknowingly infected being sold under the table.

    Stranger things have happened in this saga.
