Harder To Attribute Mortality To Vaccine Than To Covid? (JTN)

Stephanie Dubois, a British model aged 39, and Lisa Shaw, a BBC radio presenter aged 44, died within a day of each other due to serious thrombotic episodes after receiving the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. Neither had underlying health conditions. Dubois’ case has now been referred to the European Medicines Agency (EMA), as she lived in Cyprus, but she left her own account of her tragic decline on her Facebook page: May 6: “So I had the vaccination today! I hate needles, today was no exception … And now I feel horrendous … pizza and bed for me.” May 14: “Woke up feeling fine and then within an hour I had full body shakes, all my joints seized, and I was struggling to breathe and was cold to the bone with a persistent headache and dizziness … Mum and dad came to look after me and took me for a Covid test, which thankfully was negative … but it still doesn’t explain what the problem is. Maybe I’m having a prolonged reaction to my Covid jab last week.”

That same day she was admitted to the hospital. May 18: “Done being ill now … Couple more tests today! PS — I still don’t like needles — feeling tired.” May 19: Dubois went into a coma. Shaw’s family said in a statement: “Lisa developed severe headaches a week after receiving her AstraZeneca vaccine and fell seriously ill a few days later … She was treated by the [Royal Victoria Infirmary’s] intensive care team for blood clots and bleeding in her head.” According to Britain’s medical watchdog, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), there have been 332 cases of blood clotting leading to 58 deaths from the AZ vaccine. Statistically, that is very small compared to the estimated 23.9 million first doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine and 9.0 million second doses administered in the U.K. by the same date.

The death of Dubois highlights how much harder it is to attribute deaths to the vaccines than it is to claim death by COVID. Deutsche Welle has even run a fact-check article on other cases titled “No links found between vaccinations and deaths.” The German state broadcaster and publisher sought to debunk claims made in many other countries, including Italy, Austria, South Korea, Germany, Spain, Belgium and the U.S. In a case in a Norwegian nursing home, it quoted the EMA stating: “Pre-existing diseases seemed to be a plausible explanation for death. In some individuals, palliative care had already been initiated before vaccination.” Statens Legemiddelverk of the Norwegian Medicines Agency claimed, “Every day, an average of 45 people die in Norwegian nursing homes … therefore, deaths that occur close to the time of vaccination is expected, but it does not imply a causal relationship to the vaccine.”

Figures for deaths attributed to COVID, meanwhile, are not scrutinized to the same level. Comorbidities are downplayed as causal factors in death when they overlap with COVID — whether the latter is verified or even merely suspected. According to the Office of National Statistics (ONS) in the U.K., “Of the 50,335 deaths that occurred in March to June 2020 involving COVID-19 in England and Wales, 45,859 (91.1%) had at least one pre-existing condition, while 4,476 (8.9%) had none.” The average age of COVID fatalities in the U.K. up to January 2021 was 81. Finding out if COVID was the dominant cause of death is hard to discern without a full autopsy, but the British government document “Guidance for Doctors Completing Medical Certificates of Cause of Death in England and Wales — FOR USE DURING THE EMERGENCY PERIOD ONLY” explains this is not required for COVID cases: “Covid-19 is not a reason on its own to refer a death to a coroner under the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 … Medical practitioners are required to certify causes of death to the best of their knowledge and belief.”

Even medical proof is not necessary under the guidance: “If before death the patient had symptoms typical of COVID- 19 infection, but the test result has not been received, it would be satisfactory to give ‘COVID-19’ as the cause of death … In the circumstances of there being no swab, it is satisfactory to apply clinical judgement.”

Vietnam Sees Hybrid Of Covid-19 Variants Identified In India And Britain (ST)

Authorities in Vietnam have detected a new coronavirus variant that is a combination of the Covid-19 variants first found in India and Britain, and spreads quickly by air, the health minister said on Saturday (May 29). After successfully containing the virus for most of last year, Vietnam is grappling with a spike in infections since late April that accounts for more than half of the total 6,713 registered cases. So far, there have been 47 deaths. “Vietnam has uncovered a new Covid-19 variant combining characteristics of the two existing variants first found in India and the UK,” Health Minister Nguyen Thanh Long said, describing it as a hybrid of the two known variants.


“That the new one is an Indian variant with mutations that originally belong to the UK variant is very dangerous,” he told a government meeting. The South-east Asian country had previously detected seven virus variants: B1222, B1619, D614G, B117 – known as the variant from Britain, B1351, A231 and B16172 – the variant from India. Mr Long said Vietnam would soon publish genome data of the newly identified variant, which he said was more transmissible than the previously known types.

‘Wuhan Lab Is Still Conducting The Same Research’: Mike Pompeo (DM)

Mike Pompeo, the former CIA director and secretary of state, has said that Wuhan Institute of Virology was conducting secret military research and claims there is ‘enormous evidence’ that the virus that causes COVID-19 escaped from the lab. Donald Trump’s former top aide also warned that the dangerous experimentation is ongoing at the lab, raising the specter of another potentially deadly virus leak. ‘What I can say for sure is this: we know that they were engaged in efforts connected to the People’s Liberation Army inside of that laboratory, so military activity being performed alongside what they claimed was just good old civilian research,’ Pompeo told Fox News on Saturday. ‘They refuse to tell us what it was, they refuse to describe the nature of either of those, they refuse to allow access to the World Health Organization,’ Pompeo said.

‘That coverup alone suggests that there’s a lot more that we need to know.’ ‘That virology lab is still up and running. It’s still probably conducting the same kinds of research it was conducting that may have well led to this virus escaping from that laboratory,’ he said. ‘Only the Chinese Communist Party knows the answer, the world deserves the answers and they have to tell us, I hope there will be bipartisan push to demand and hold accountable,’ said Pompeo. He spoke after President Joe Biden ordered an intensive 90-day probe to reinvestigate the possibility of a lab leak origin in the pandemic. ‘It’s really unfortunate they took the position early on that there was nothing to see here,’ Pompeo said in response to the new probe.

‘I’m glad now that they’re looking at this. I hope it’s a serious investigation when they say they are giving 90 days for the intelligence community to look at this. The intelligence community has been looking at this for an awfully long time,’ he said. Pompeo, a former CIA spy chief, has promoted the lab leak theory since the early days of the pandemic, a theory that until recently much of the U.S. media and academia scoffed at as a fringe conspiracy theory. ‘I’ve known since spring of last year, 2020, when I first spoke about this that there is enormous evidence that this escaped from that laboratory in Wuhan,’ he said on Saturday. ‘We know there were people who got sick there, scientists who got sick there, we know they were doing the gain of function research — essentially taking viruses and making them more contagious, potentially more lethal, this administration has to get after this.’

Victoria: 5 New Local Covid Cases, ‘Extremely Concerning’ Mystery Case (G.)

The Morrison government is continuing to declare getting vaccinated is “not a race” even as Victorian health authorities confirmed five new locally acquired infections – including one mystery case in aged care – on day three of the state’s fourth Covid lockdown. The new cases reported on Sunday morning take the total number in the Melbourne-based outbreak to 40. Victoria’s acting premier, James Merlino, announced a $250m support package for businesses on Sunday while stating he was “beyond disappointed” the prime minister and federal treasurer had declined to help workers with financial assistance. The vaccine roll-out was a race, Merlino insisted. Victoria wanted to go faster but was being held back by the federal government failing to secure enough supply, he said.

One of the new positive cases reported on Sunday was a healthcare provider in an aged care home in the western suburb of Maidstone. Colin Singh, the Arcare chief executive, said the worker had received her first dose of a Covid vaccine, was wearing a mask and had not displayed symptoms when she last worked at the centre on Thursday. “I want to assure you that, whilst we hoped that this would not happen again, we are well prepared, and our infection control practices put us in a good place to manage this outbreak effectively,” he said in the statement on Sunday. Arcare Maidstone has capacity for 90 residents, according to its website. It was relatively untouched by Covid last year – compared to other Victorian facilities – recording only seven cases.

Victoria’s Covid commander, Jeroen Weimar, said on Sunday the case in the aged care home was of “extreme concern” because it was a mystery case. “I am concerned that at this point in time we don’t have an original acquisition source,” for the healthcare worker, Weimar told reporters.

“The more threatening a virus is presumed to be, the more superfluous government force is.”

Restricting Freedom Didn’t Defeat COVID (ZH)

Let’s travel back in time to March of 2020, when predictions of mass death related to the new coronavirus started to gain currency. One study, conducted by Imperial College’s Neil Ferguson, indicated that U.S. deaths alone would exceed 2 million. The above number is often used, even by conservatives and libertarians, as justification for the initial lockdowns. “We knew so little” is the excuse, and with so many deaths expected, can anyone blame local, state, and national politicians for panicking? The answer is a resounding yes. To see why, imagine if Ferguson had predicted 30 million American deaths. Imagine the fear among the American people then—which is precisely the point: The more threatening a virus is presumed to be, the more superfluous government force is. Really, who needs to be told to be careful if a failure to take precautions could reasonably result in death?

Death predictions aside, the other justification bruited in March of 2020 was that brief lockdowns (two weeks was the number often thrown around) would flatten the hospitalization curve. In this case, the taking of freedom allegedly made sense as a way of protecting hospitals from a massive inflow of sick patients that they wouldn’t have been able to handle, and that would have resulted in a public health catastrophe. Such a view similarly vandalizes reason. Think about it. Who needs to be forced to avoid behavior that might result in hospitalization? Better yet, who needs to be forced to avoid behavior that might result in hospitalization at a time when doctors and hospitals would be so short-staffed as to not be able to take care of admitted patients? Translated for those who need it, the dire predictions made over a year ago about the corona-horrors that awaited us don’t justify the lockdowns; rather they should remind the mildly sentient among us of how cruel and pointless they were.

The common sense that we are to varying degrees born with, along with our genetic predisposition to survive, dictates that a fear of hospitalization or death would have caused Americans to take virus-avoidance precautions that would have well exceeded any rules foisted on them by politicians. To which some will reply with something along the lines of “Not everyone has common sense. In truth, there are lots of dumb, low-information types out there who would have disregarded all the warnings. Lockdowns weren’t necessary for the wise among us; rather they were essential precisely because there are so many who aren’t wise.” Actually, such a response is the best argument of all against lockdowns.

DeSantis Pushes Back On Big Tech Social Media Censorship (JTN)


Last week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law a bill that takes on Big Tech companies in his state. The law, however, is taking criticism — from both right and left — that parts of it may be unconstitutional and that its notable exemptions for some big companies undermine its goal of standing up to domineering industry giants. Florida’s “Big Tech Bill” aims to protect social media users — whether political candidates, journalistic outlets or ordinary users — from ideologically selective censorship by internet platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Google.

Among its major provisions, the law will:
• Fine companies up to $250,000 per day for suspending political candidates from a platform during the run-up to an election
• Require platforms to make public the rules they use to regulate their user content and provide users with explanations as to why they have been censored
• Require companies to provide users an appeals process or chance to “correct” their flagged content
• Prohibit companies from censoring any “journalistic enterprise based on the content of its publication or broadcast.”

Perhaps most importantly, the bill would empower individuals and the office of the Florida attorney general to much more easily sue these companies under the Florida Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act. Yet critics see the law as little more than a symbolic gesture destined to be struck down by the courts on constitutional grounds. “I see this bill as purely performative: It was never designed to be law but simply to send a message to voters,” Santa Clara University Law School professor Eric Goldman told the Washington Post. He argues that the bill will unconstitutionally restrict the editorial discretion of platforms that act as online publishers — a First Amendment violation.

Climate Crisis Inflicting Huge ‘Hidden Costs’ On Mental Health (G.)

The climate crisis is damaging the mental health of hundreds of millions of people around the world but the huge costs are hidden, scientists have warned. Heatwaves are increasing rates of suicide, extreme weather such as floods and wildfires are leaving victims traumatised, and loss of food security, homes and livelihoods is resulting in stress and depression. Anxiety about the future is also harming people’s mental health, especially the young, the scientists said in a report. Mental health conditions already affect a billion people and cost trillions of dollars a year. The researchers said global heating would worsen the issue unless action was taken. They described a vicious circle where climate impacts increase mental health difficulties, leaving people even more vulnerable to further consequences.

However, they said tackling climate change could turn this into a virtuous circle. Action by individuals, communities and governments not only cuts the impacts of heating but also boosts people’s mental wellbeing by giving them healthier lives and a sense of hope and agency. “Mental health is the unseen impact of climate change at the moment,” said Emma Lawrance of Imperial College London, who led the report. “It is a big problem that is going to affect more and more people into the future, and in particular exacerbate inequality. It is very likely to be a really big unaccounted cost.

“If you have lost your home, if you’re at risk of repeated flooding, if you’re grieving because you’ve lost a family member to a fire or your livelihood because of a drought, that is shock and trauma that translates for some into very prolonged distress and diagnoses of PTSD, anxiety, depression and increased risk of suicide.”

“That was the moment when the establishment elites realized that non-state money had arrived..”

Could Facebook’s Diem Become FedCoin By Default? (Jeftovic)

I had a reader ask me about Silvergate Capital. They’re a bank holding company with a lot of exposure to the crypto currency space. I hadn’t yet analyzed them deeply, but I did notice that they recently announced a partnership with Facebook on their DiemUSD stablecoin. Diem is Facebook’s rebrand of Libra. Libra was a private crypto currency Facebook proposed to launch which in my mind was a transformative event for nation states and central banks. That was the moment when the establishment elites realized that non-state money had arrived and it posed an existential threat to the status quo. They were able to hold off Facebook’s Libra, for awhile. They fought dirty.

US Senators sent straight up extortion letters to members of Facebook’s Libra Consortium threatening to investigate them for ostensible ties to child pornography on Facebook’s platform if they went through with the project. They all dropped out. My heart didn’t exactly bleed for Facebook, but the incident was instructive. I wrote about it at the time, but I will repeat the salient point here: Should a gigantic platform like Facebook successfully launch their own digital currency, a person’s Facebook account will become more important in their day-to-day lives than their nation state issued passport. Especially if we’re entering an era of drastically curtailed travel for plebeians. The battle between the US, France, et al and Facebook over Libra was an early round in the struggle between waning Nation States and ascendent Network States.

Facebook kept working on their Libra, first under a wallet program called Novi and now as Diem, and Diem USD will be their stablecoin. One can only surmise that behind the scenes something has shifted so that Facebook thinks they can proceed with launching a new stablecoin. This partnership with Silvergate, as well as relocating their Diem Association, which oversees their digital currency projects, from Switzerland back to the United States may be part of that calculus. There have been some rumblings that the US is losing the Central Bank Digital Currency race and that one way to jumpstart a program would be to partner with a private entity who is already further down the road with it. Who would be uniquely situated to provide a solution in some manner of public-private partnership? Facebook, for one.

Increasingly Chaotic Volatility Ahead (CHS)

The standard debate about the future of the economy is: which will we get, high inflation or a deflationary collapse of defaults and asset bubbles popping? The debate goes round and round in widening circles of complexity as analysts delve into every nuance of the debate. A recent conversation with my friend A.T. raised a third possibility few seem to consider: increasingly chaotic volatility will be the new normal, as wild swings between inflation and deflation will increase in amplitude and ferocity as the system destabilizes. Increasingly chaotic volatility is a classic sign of a system that has lost equilibrium and is attempting to regain its dynamic stability by going into overdrive. The amplitude and violence of these fluctuations increase as each attempt to restore stability fails.

This loss of stability is not what people expect. The experience of the past 60 years has been that any hiccup in financial stability–a recession or market crash–is temporary, as the system responds with monetary and fiscal stimulus which quickly restores the system’s stability. That the era of stability has ended and a new era of increasingly chaotic volatility has begun is not on anyone’s radar as a possibility. Human physiology offers a useful analogy: blood glucose homeostasis, which is the system of insulin production and sensitivity that maintains the dynamic stability of glucose in our bloodstream for use as energy. Insulin is produced as needed after a meal to regulate the level of glucose within the ideal bandwidth of homeostasis, i.e. the range of dynamic stability that optimizes insulin production and glucose levels. (3.5 to 5.5 mmol/L or 70 to 130 mg/dL)

In metabolic disorders, the body’s sensitivity to insulin declines, and in response the body increases the production of insulin to compensate for the decline in sensitivity. As the disease progresses, sensitivity drops further, forcing the production of insulin into overdrive. Eventually this overdrive degrades the body’s ability to produce insulin and the regulatory system managing glucose levels crashes.

    Yesterday’s ZH article by virologists says they have irrefutable evidence that covid was created in a lab. A quite from the article:
    ” ‘A natural virus pandemic would be expected to mutate gradually and become more infectious but less pathogenic which is what many expected with the COVID-19 pandemic but which does not appear to have happened,’ the scientists wrote. ”
    Okay, a natural virus over time will become more contagious but less deadly. However these virologists say this is not happening with covid and the reason has to do with the fact that covid us a lab-construct versus a natural virus. No need to cite impact of vaccination as per VandenBossche, because increased pathogenicity is baked into the cake. I wonder if VandenBossche would say his theory holds up with a lab-constructed virus.

    There are so many variables, between the twists and turns of disease and human involvement potentially in it’s creation and response to it.

    Yes, living through climate-change induced biblical heat waves, floods and droughts are what is on the menu for those of us fortunate enough to either survive covid or vaccination.

    I saw a good placard in the London protests. A photo of Hancock and Whitty with pair of crossed syringes entitled Say No to Both Pricks.

    What surprised me was that nobody was wearing masks not even the Police although their features would have been much improved by doing so. I felt rather ashamed of myself for accepting the new normal so quickly. I mask when I go to shop and so does nearly everyone else. Only on the terraces of the bars do people go unmasked.

    A lot of truth here, but one qualifier I would add is that thanks to Dr. Kory, at least now they’re willing to give you a treatment of low-dose steroids (though high-dose would be better) to try and keep you off the ventilator. This is good, because one’s chances of survival go down by quite a bit once one is on the ventilator.

    Django: I watch this more than anyone I know, with a more suspicious eye than anyone I know. There’s nothing. They’re ghosts. They’re like the dog that didn’t bark. It’s not even the same method each time, like they blackmail the baddies one by one on command. But they do, or must, have cosmic-class intel to A) do the armtwisting B) know where to twist. So yes, Marine generals (Milintel) are my only suspect. That is, the Constitutional military, loyal to the people and principles. They have been planning since ‘96 or ‘01, and running things since ‘17. They installed Cheeto on command, not the other way around, so in that sense, nothing’s changed. Otherwise, as you say, who’s putting on the pressure? So no one’s there but Wuhan comes out, Fauci is wrecked headed to discredited, all press is in a lather, unable to escape, the vote audits are untouched, unstoppable, Whitmer follows Cuomo to destruction and perhaps jail, Maxwell names ClintonCo as witnesses, NorthStream succeeds, gun laws erased, vax remains voluntary and now illegal in many states, on and on…

    But there nobody there, we’re all losing every day. Right. Who has that kind of power? A) The People. Yes. And “they” can’t move without heavy support of the people, the people doing footwork in school boards, county election rooms. They’re waiting for US. But the people don’t coordinate. And they don’t reach up to the top. Somebody’s there.

    Trying to keep level: remember, even if much of the worst of the disease and cure is true, we still have Ivermectin and Co as therapies, even cures, for the vax-caused natural wave one would expect this fall. All they have to do is stop being bone-heads, which as we know, is the hardest task on planet earth to do: changing minds, admitting wrong. If Trump took it, I’d rather die, and will. I’ll kill my kids too, all of them, and yours too. But it’s there. If the therapy can cause spike protein, quite likely an equal DNA therapy can stop spike protein. These are not reliable, but gain numbers in waves. Moreover, biology is not physics, despite their weirdo beliefs. It’s extremely messy and unsure. Some variation occurs: after a short time, none of the plans written like software function as intended and life breaks through. …Actually like software in that Bill n Co’s software ALSO doesn’t work hardly on the first day, and most software collapses without constant intervention immediately after. …Talk about wasting gigs of electric. I don’t care for having to fall on that path, but am aware their plan won’t work, but also the cure won’t work, both will slapdash half-work, and be worked up in statistics. Like life itself, actually, which it is.

    ““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. ”

    Very unlikely, as infected had solid immunity to SARS +10 years later. It would be unprecedented to see it be only a year. More like a lifetime, until your immunity runs down with age.

    How and when did we as citizens, let go/give up, in the deepest sense, our personal control and responsibility to other?”

    This is what I say every day. But because of the paradigms, it comes out as Right-Left partisanship. But it IS the fact. It IS the risk. And because we Americans were established and encoded this paradigm, this IS the highest law in the land. So three reasons not to ignore it and get back to personal, but also family/community responsibility. Our law, our documents state in the starkest terms: the government is not your Daddy. You are the captain of your ship. If you make them your daddy, he will rape and kill you. That’s why we have unhindered self-defense against ALL aggressors. And why Daddy needs you unarmed.

    Statistically, that is very small compared to the estimated 23.9 million first doses”

    They’re not wrong. But whatever happened to “If even one life can be saved?”

    “If before death the patient had symptoms typical of COVID- 19 infection, …it would be satisfactory to give ‘COVID-19’ as the cause of death …”

    And get the $57,000 in the middle of a (voluntary) hospital shutdown and funding crisis. You optimize what you incentivize.

    You mean the same as all the others? Not at all slightly different? And why am I listening to racist, Nazi pigs using words like “India” and “UK” to name the virus? Pull their medical licenses! Ban them from YouTube. Put them in jail for using words!

    Wuhan: From yesterday, IF – if if if – Wuhan was attacked with the magnetic + 5G kicker, THEN, who started the war? Us or China? That’s not to say China might have done/tried something we know nothing about and that was our response. Ya know – like buying off every college for pocket change, then flying the virus bioweapons back and forth on commercial air for a few years as has already been reported. Stochastic terrorism? Knowing if you do it enough, it will “accident”? If you were China, wouldn’t you buy someone in Ft. Deitrick to release it? Not everything is as it seems. Now all this investigation after is the “writing history” with parts left out. It’s not if you win or lose, but where you place the blame. Thankfully, I don’t need to care, I only need to withstand.

    “Climate Crisis Inflicting Huge ‘Hidden Costs’ on Mental Health (G.)”

    Speaking of left-right, only THEY – protected, privileged, ivory-tower party apparatchiks could say this. Okay buddy, they did this, in France, and got a YEAR of yellow vests, and now the open discussion of Army-led civil war because you cost shifted FROM soy-latte drinking Parisians, TO desperate, dirt-poor hospital-closed-forever margin farmers. You supported it, overwhelmingly, with every breath of your bones. Kill dem dere farmers, the poorest, anyone who works! Stop that food now! That is what you’re saying, right? Hey, why don’t you redistribute the farms to the communes like Ukraine and Zimbabwe did? That’s never gone wrong. Farming’s as easy as throwing seeds on the ground and sittin’ on the porch strummin’ the old banjo.

    “However, they said tackling climate change could turn this into a virtuous circle.”

    It was THEIR HELPING, with laws that prevent ANY human response, AND is designed ground-up to multiply cost infinitely and give them to Paris and CO2-trading, cheating Goldman Sachs million-dollar EU ministers, that is preventing people from doing the dead-obvious: growing gardens, chickens, downsizing, insulating their houses by changing their design and location and structure. 1,000 years of laws, but certainly the last 100 demand that NOTHING HAPPEN. Because la plus change might upset the money-funnel to the top.

    Their answer, as I always say? MOAR government!!! Therefore more centralization, more extraction to the wealthiest EU bondholders and billionaires.

    But: The Guardian, so of course it’s BOTH stupid AND false. Refer to Luke, wielder of the (billionaire, establishment, anti-Assange) Force.

    Let’s put it this way: China, which is in epic, food-ending, nation-crushing flooding, would just respond, move upland, change field use. Once you build the 3 Gorges Dam, you have no options. The dam overshadows all. Infrastructure is the opposite of flexibility, which is why it’s the opposite of resiliency, which is why in Tainter, etc, it’s the hallmark of dead empires. That and all their insider-Party parking lots and factories.

    Could Facebook’s Diem Become FedCoin By Default? (Jeftovic)”

    No, nay, never. Don’t even waste your precious brainpower on it.

    Put it this way: they’re not in control. And they have less control every day. You’re on your own. And thank God, since government is the sort of “infrastructure” that prevents adaptation and insures collapse.

    I agree that mandated lockdowns were not necessary to change the behavior of *most* people. However, they were necessary for broad based shut downs of workplaces. Without a legal mandate telling most businesses to shut down unless they were indispensable , or move to remote work, and monetary compensation from the government for those whose income was affected, lockdowns would not have been so effective. We live in an economic system where for many, if not most, survival hinges upon regular employment. Now, whether or not the lockdowns were effective I curbing Covid, or legal, or justified, etc., that is an entirely different issue. But to make lockdowns happen in a large way, it was necessary to compensate — at least in some ways — those who would otherwise lose all of their income. And to prevent the powerful from bellyaching, for some, lost profits were also provided (soaring stock market.)

    “US Senators sent straight up extortion letters to members of Facebook’s Libra Consortium threatening to investigate them for ostensible ties to child pornography on Facebook’s platform if they went through with the project. They all dropped out.”

    I’m wary of that type of extortion, where the government seems to ignore violations of laws while keeping track of them nonetheless. The threat of prosecution can be later used to get something (information, cooperation, behavior modification…)

    One potential example is the failure to register for the draft, which in the US “is a felony punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 and/or 5 years imprisonment.” I’m guessing there are many people who didn’t register, but prosecutions seem rare or nonexistent. However, the threat of 5 years imprisonment can be wielded to get information or cooperation from these people later.

    Precursors to the discovery of COV19 in Wuhan, from Europe.

    The French delegation to the Wuhan Military Games, some dismaying number but not everyone, fell sick as dogs. With the typical Covid Symptoms. (None died afaik.)

    They couldn’t understand it and found it excruciating to compete, didn’t win many medals. One F competitor woman, Elodie Clouvel (goog) was indeed quoted in several MSM outlets (she did win a medal, popular woman athlete) about a peculiar sickness, her companion in another team fell sick also.. many others…

    A gossipy F MSM link, also details Swedish athletes falling ill.

    https://bit.ly/2ROIrbm

    Another F MSM, athletes real sick, etc.

    https://bit.ly/3fBraeO

    It was widely opined at the time that F milit. athletes weren’t able to compete at top form, etc. (The food? The flu? etc.)

    Here is the telling bit, the F MSM immediately published that there was NO WAY the French delegation to the Wuhan Games caught Covid, once covid became a ‘thing.’

    quote:

    Au ministère des Armées, on a été demandé aux athlètes de ne pas répondre aux questions sur ce sujet avant de transmettre un communiqué sur la santé des membres de l’équipe de France militaire. Il n’y a pas eu, au sein de la délégation française des Jeux militaires mondiaux, de cas déclarés auprès du Service de santé des armées de grippes ou d’hospitalisation pendant et au retour des JMME, pouvant s’apparenter, à postériori, à des cas de Covid-19, a réagi le ministère des Armées, qui ne précise pas si Elodie Clouvel a été ou non en contact avec des médecins militaires pour être testée ou comparer ses symptômes de l’époque avec ceux du nouveau coronavirus. La délégation française a bénéficié d’un suivi médical, avant et pendant les jeux, avec une équipe médicale dédiée composée de près d’une vingtaine de personnels souligne encore le ministère…

    https://bit.ly/3bZEBTx – France Info

    paraph.: Army personnel are strongly advised not to answer questions (i.e. forbidden..) No infections occurred, none were declared, no hospitalisations took place. The F delegations to the Wuhan games had Med. supervision all along, 20 staff, test were carried out, etc. “Move Along Nothing to See Here” was the message.

    Precursors to the discovery of COV19 in Wuhan, from Europe.

    The imho no doubt largest Chinese communities in Europe have been and are (> 2020) in Italy. Northern Italy – the top hotspot for COV19 for a long time. Plus Tuscany.

    Numbers are hard to come by, as ‘ethnicity’ is not a category used in the EU. For N. Italy, it seems Gvmt sources claim 100K Chinese inhabitants, reasonable estimates, 150K, others, 200K.

    Idk, might be more, illegals (= many) are under the radar. You can’t see it if you drive around as a tourist, as they live in industrial / close to industrial / specific villages that are not visited/ etc. spots. (I visit N. Italy often, family.)

    They are employed in, and now a large part run the ex-Italian textile, leather, apparel (e.g. + handbags) industry. Look up Louis Vuitton and others, all will tell much of their merch is made in Italy. (They can’t say made in China for reasons legal / of image, so ..workers were imported.)

    In 1998, It. law changed and Chinese citizens were able to own bizness. (as opposed to being exploited employees.) Of course there are sweat shops all over the place still today, but since then, Chinese entrepreneurs could open their own biz, and they employed compatriots. And many have been extremely successful.

    Arte docu. about Prato (Tuscany). It is about Chinese youth in Prato, their lives, their schools, hopes and dreams. (All the images are from Prato. Speakers It. + Chin. w. F or D voice-over.) 25 mins., good, even for just a look at some shots. Note: this is not just a cute show about some foreign uprooted community: 20% or more of the inhabitants of Prato are Chinese, or by now, hopeful Chinese-Italian, in the sense of Chinese youth hoping to become Italian. (Intermarriage has been nil or close to, imho.)

    Point is, the biggest consistent exchange of ppl China-Europe has trad. taken place between Wenzhou and N. Italy, thru Malpensa airport. Is that of relevance for Covid? Maybe, maybe not. Note some regions in China and Italy (N) share characteristics, ginormous use of electricity, dense pop. in some spots, manu-factories all over, working 24/24, etc.

    French athletes contaminated by Covid-19 from October at the Wuhan Military Games?
    Several French athletes have revealed in recent days that they have suffered symptoms of Covid-19 following the military Games which took place last October. This competition, in which more than 400 French athletes took part, took place in Wuhan, the Chinese epicenter of the pandemic. Olympic medalist Elodie Clouvel unequivocally believes that she has “already had the coronavirus”, as does her partner, the pentathlete Valentin Belaud. The controversy continues to grow.
    The coronavirus could have struck without warning sooner than expected. Numerous testimonies and clues incriminate the holding of the Military Games in China, in Wuhan – the world’s first outbreak of Covid-19 – as a possible vector of contamination. Several French athletes have thus expressed that they suffered from the same symptoms as those of Covid-19 after their participation in the competition organized last October. Nearly 400 Habs took part in these Games, among the 10,000 athletes present in what turned out to be the starting point of the pandemic which has affected the whole world for several months.

    From hypotheses to hallway noise, the case has become a shock wave, which could seriously call into question the date of the first contamination with the virus until then estimated at November 17, 2019 in China, and December 27 in France. World champion and Olympic pentathlon runner-up Elodie Clouvel is therefore convinced of having contracted Covid-19 at the World Military Games. Asked by the local channel Télévision Loire 7 on March 25, the one who won gold during these Games assured that she did not fear having to go again to Asia for the Tokyo Olympic Games, since she and her companion (the pentathlete Valentin Belaud) had already been infected. “We were in Wuhan and then we all got sick. Valentin missed three days of training. It was very weird, I also had things that I hadn’t had before. We didn’t worry more than that because we didn’t talk about it yet. ”
    Another French military athlete on condition of anonymity confirmed to BFM TV that he had also fallen ill (fever, severe aches) and had to be bedridden for three days on his return from China. ” We had contact with the military doctor who told us, ‘I think you had it because there are a lot of people from this delegation who were sick’ ” relates Elodie Clouvel. According to BFM TV , no French athlete has been tested after Wuhan, and it is not expected that they will be in the future. ” We are told: ‘there is no risk, you left on October 28 and the virus arrived on November 1 ‘ “, specifies another anonymous athlete at Le Parisien .

    At the Ministry of the Armed Forces, athletes were asked not to answer questions on this subject before sending a press release on the health of members of the French military team. ” Within the French delegation to the World Military Games, there were no cases declared to the Army Health Service of influenza or hospitalization during and on return from WMDs, which could be similar, a posteriori , to cases of Covid-19 “, reacted the Ministry of the Armed Forces, which does not specify whether or not Elodie Clouvel was in contact with military doctors to be tested or to compare her symptoms at the time with those of the new coronavirus . “The French delegation benefited from medical follow-up, before and during the games, with a dedicated medical team made up of nearly twenty personnel, “the ministry added, recalling that” when the World Military Summer Games (JMME) took place from October 18 to 27, 2019, in Wuhan in China, the epidemic linked to Covid-19 was not known at the time “and that” the first case of Covid-19 was not reported by the China to the WHO, as of December 31, 2019 “.
    The case does not pose a question only in France. In the United States, the thesis of an arrival of the virus on the territory by its military delegation on the return from the Games has already surfaced. This thesis was supported in particular by the words of the spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, who had explained between the lines of a Tweet that the Covid-19 could have been brought to American soil by the military team having took part in the Wuhan rally. In Luxembourg or Sweden, other examples of sick athletes have surfaced in recent days. ” But none of the people tested gave a positive result ” to Covid-19 hammers the communication service of the Swedish armed forces.

    Okay noted Ilargi re the article being available at TAE. However, the point I was making is that, if what these virologist say is true, the VandenBossche scenario (the arrival of more dangerous variants) is happening without any vaccination because of the unique character if the virus itself. Therefore, we may never be able to discern whether or not VandenBossche was correct.
    Phoenix Voice I agree with your assessment of lockdowns. I also agree with someone’s count correction factor for the number of participants in protests.
