The best vaccine in the market RIGHT NOW is the Delta. Mild side effects and natural immunity, with 200 thousand years of satisfied customers.



Mike “Mish” Shedlock @MishGEA: “It seems like fearmongers have forgotten (or simply don’t care) that daily deaths in the USA have gone from 4,464 on January 12 to 92 today. The continuing message is to spread fear.”

Coronavirus Appears Uniquely Designed To Attack Humans (DT.au)

A team of Australian researchers have published a scientific paper proving that the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus appears to be best adapted to attack human cells, raising even more questions about the pandemic’s origins. The scientists from Flinders University and La Trobe used powerful computers to model the protein receptors in a number of animal species to see how the coronavirus’s spike protein attached itself to them. The theory was that if the coronavirus attached itself readily to an animal like a bat or a pangolin, it would have likely been the species that the bug used to make its leap into the human population. However, the modelling found that the coronavirus’s spike protein was best suited to attacking protein receptors in humans.

“The computer modelling found the virus’s ability to bind to the bat ACE2 protein was poor relative to its ability to bind human cells,” said Flinders University epidemiologist and vaccine researcher Professor Nikolai Petrovsky. “This argues against the virus being transmitted directly from bats to humans. “Hence, if the virus has a natural source, it could only have come to humans via an intermediary species which has yet to be found,” he said. While the researchers also found that the coronavirus could attach relatively easily to pangolins, as well as domestic animals like cats and dogs, the findings will add weight to the increasingly repeated charge that the coronavirus escaped the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology in an accident involving “gain of function” research. “Overall, putting aside the intriguing pangolin ACE2 results, our study showed that the COVID-19 virus was very well adapted to infect humans,” Prof Petrovsky said.

“..a 580% increase in cancellations globally in the past 2 days.”

Thousands Of Flights Cancelled As Vaccinated Pilots Fall Ill Or Die (CH)

According to a 2014 study published in the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis, pilots suffer an increased risk of clotting issues due to frequent and prolonged air travel. Pilots are encouraged to be aware of the signs of deep venous thrombosis and clotting issues and take preventative measures such as compression stockings and stretching of their legs during long flights. Medical News Today published a study on June 15th, 2021 that showed an increased risk of blood clotting and low platelets in AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine recipients. Some scientists hypothesize that since the ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) in the shot causes a full body reaction, once the vaccine comes into contact with platelets inside the human body, the vaccine activates those platelets, causing them to change shape and transmit chemical signals to the immune system. Those platelets send out platelet factor 4 (PF4), which regulates blood clotting.

However, in some people, after some undetermined amount of time, at random, PF4 latches onto the vaccine, and large “complexes” form. Since those complexes are “unknown,” the human body interprets those clusters as threats. Thus, immune cells in the body mistakenly attack PF4’s, prohibiting them from preventing the problematic clots seen in some COVID-19 vaccine recipients. Pilots have an increased risk of blood clots. COVID-19 vaccine recipients have an increased risk of blood clots. Reuter’s and Fact Checkers cannot hide the fact that an increased risk on top of an increased risk is potentially a disaster, but neither has any regard for human life or the truth, as evidenced by the propaganda they’re currently creating by the minute.

Delta Airlines now requires the COVID-19 vaccine for all new employees, potentially putting Delta employees at risk of blood clots and death. American Airlines doesn’t require the vaccine but gives its employees one day off of work and $50 for getting the vaccine. No mention of the inherent risk for non air employees, let alone those who spend ample time in the clouds, is ever made by Delta or American. [..] ccording to flightaware.com, 120,000 cancellations per year is the average for global flights. An average day would see 329 cancellations. A 2 day average would see 658 cancellations. But between Friday and Saturday, 3,533 cancellations occurred. That’s a 580% increase in cancellations globally in the past 2 days.

Only 1% of adverse reactions are reported to VAERS.

Pretzel logic. Cute try.

Why Most People Who Now Die With Covid In England Have Been Vaccinated (G.)

A MailOnline headline on 13 June read: “Study shows 29% of the 42 people who have died after catching the new strain had BOTH vaccinations.” In Public Health England’s technical briefing on 25 June, that figure had risen to 43% (50 of 117), with the majority (60%) having received at least one dose. It could sound worrying that the majority of people dying in England with the now-dominant Delta (B.1.617.2) variant have been vaccinated. Does this mean the vaccines are ineffective? Far from it, it’s what we would expect from an effective but imperfect vaccine, a risk profile that varies hugely by age and the way the vaccines have been rolled out.

Consider the hypothetical world where absolutely everyone had received a less than perfect vaccine. Although the death rate would be low, everyone who died would have been fully vaccinated. The vaccines are not perfect. PHE estimates two-dose effectiveness against hospital admission with the Delta infections at around 94%. We can perhaps assume there is at least 95% protection against Covid-19 death, which means the lethal risk is reduced to less than a twentieth of its usual value.

But the risk of dying from Covid-19 is extraordinarily dependent on age: it halves for each six to seven year age gap. This means that someone aged 80 who is fully vaccinated essentially takes on the risk of an unvaccinated person of around 50 – much lower, but still not nothing, and so we can expect some deaths. The PHE report also reveals that nearly a third of deaths from the Delta variant are of unvaccinated people over 50, which may be surprising given high vaccine coverage; for example, OpenSAFELY estimates more than 93% among the 65-69s. But there are lower rates in deprived areas and for some ethnicities and communities with limited coverage will continue to experience more than their fair share of loss.

FDA Adds Warning About Heart Inflammation To COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines (ET)

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) added a warning about the risk of developing heart inflammation to information about the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines. The FDA announced earlier this month that it would add the warning after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had reported that more cases of heart inflammation—either myocarditis or pericarditis—were found in young adults and children after they received the vaccines, which use mRNA technology. On June 25, the agency said that it would add revisions to its patient and provider fact sheets about the “increased risks of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the tissue surrounding the heart) following vaccination” using the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 shots.

The Pfizer or Moderna vaccines use mRNA technology and require two doses, whereas the vaccine made by Johnson & Johnson uses an adenovirus and requires a single dose. Still, health officials have said that the risks of developing heart inflammation are outweighed by the vaccine’s benefits. “The risk of myocarditis and pericarditis appears to be very low given the number of vaccine doses that have been administered,” Janet Woodcock, the acting FDA commissioner, said in a statement last week. “The benefits of COVID-19 vaccination continue to outweigh the risks, given the risk of COVID-19 diseases and related, potentially severe, complications.”

The warning issued by the FDA says that there may be increased risks “particularly following the second dose and with [the] onset of symptoms within a few days after vaccination.” “Additionally, the Fact Sheets for Recipients and Caregivers for these vaccines note that vaccine recipients should seek medical attention right away if they have chest pain, shortness of breath, or feelings of having a fast-beating, fluttering, or pounding heart after vaccination,” the agency said. “The FDA and CDC are monitoring the reports, collecting more information, and will follow-up to assess longer-term outcomes over several months.”

“New Covid-19 infections have increased by more than 50 percent over the last two weeks in under-vaccinated states ..”

White House Struggles To Increase Vaccinations As Delta Variant Surges (Pol.)

Top Biden administration health officials trying to slow the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant have largely given up on the possibility of reinstating mask and social-distancing rules in favor of a grassroots vaccine education campaign. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Health and Human Services and the White House Covid-19 Task Force have discussed whether to press mayors and governors in the Midwest and South, where the highly transmissible Delta variant is spreading quickly, to once again require mask mandates, according to three senior Biden health officials. But the administration ultimately concluded that many people who are not vaccinated are also those who have resisted wearing masks.

Instead, the federal government will try to convince hesitant Americans to get vaccinated by working with state officials and trusted community members to communicate the benefits of the shots, the three senior officials said. The president’s team is not confident that the new campaign will change hearts and minds, the two officials said, but it is falling back on old messaging in part because top administration officials are unsure what other tactics will work. Only about 46 percent of the U.S. population is vaccinated, and the number of doses administered has fallen by almost 300,000 per day since June 7, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The plateauing vaccination rate underscores the extent to which the White House is struggling to find new and better ways to convince Americans to get Covid-19 shots — while much of the rest of the world struggles to secure a steady supply of vaccines. And it raises questions about how the federal government will manage increasing Covid-19 cases associated with the Delta variant in the months ahead, with businesses and schools returning to normal operations.

“This is the door-to-door campaign, this is the church-to-church, this is going into the community and meeting people where they are. We’re not going to convince everybody,” said Scott Becker, CEO of the Association of Public Health Laboratories. “The Delta variant and its explosive growth — I wish there was a better way to articulate the damage that it is doing and will do in those communities, but it is going to be a tough slog.” New Covid-19 infections have increased by more than 50 percent over the last two weeks in under-vaccinated states such as Missouri and Oklahoma. Many of the cases are tied to the Delta variant, which the CDC says now accounts for one-fifth of new infections nationwide.

Greece appears to be like Russia, and I’m sure most of Eastern Europe, countries that have had recent periods of authoritarianism, leading to mistrust of authorities and experts.

Greek Experts Urge Public To Get A Move On With Vaccines (K.)

With the first cases of the Delta coronavirus variant appearing in Greece coinciding with the easing of restrictive measures, the country’s scientific community has called on the public to take advantage of the summer lull in infection rates to “hurry up” with their vaccinations. “We must take advantage of this gap to vaccinate those who have not yet done so,” said Athanasios Exadaktylos, president of the Panhellenic Medical Association, echoing the general consensus of the scientific community. “Right now only a third of over-55s have been vaccinated. This percentage should go up sharply, as this is the age group most at risk from the new coronavirus,” he said. Bearing in mind that the summer holidays may affect the fast pace of vaccinations (100,000 vaccinations per day), Exadaktylos noted that “perhaps the system needs to be made more flexible” so not a day is lost in the process.

Only a third of over-55s have been vaccinated, and fewer among the younger. So businesses are supposed to volutarily ban over two thirds of potential customers? Yeah, sure.

Greek PM To Present Benefits For Fully Vaccinated Citizens (K.)

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsorakis will present on Monday the government’s proposals for the benefits that will be offered to those who complete their vaccinations against Covid-19, in a drive to encourage inoculation in the country. Among the measures being considered are allowing the owners of cinemas, theaters, concerts, festivals and sporting events to restrict entry to their premises only for those who have a vaccination certificate. Another is allowing business owners to increase the number of people allowed indoors if they only accept fully inoculated people. Any measures will exclude access to public sector services and vanues, hospitals, supermarkets, shops, banks and transport, where there will be no distinction between vaccinated and non-vaccinated people, but where the current health restrictions for indoor spaces will continue to be observed.

New York Prosecutors Set Deadline For Trump On Legal Action (R.)

New York prosecutors have given lawyers for Donald Trump 24 hours to respond with any last arguments as to why criminal charges should not be filed against his family business, according to a report on Sunday. The deadline set for Monday was another strong signal that the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus Vance, and the New York attorney general, Letitia James, are considering criminal charges against the former president’s company as an entity, according to sources quoted by the Washington Post. On Friday, it was reported that Vance could announce charges against the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, within seven days. Any criminal charges would be the first in Vance’s probe into Trump and his business dealings.

Legal experts have said an indictment against the Trump Organization could bankrupt the company by undermining its relationships with banks and other business partners. Vance’s office has said it was investigating “possibly extensive and protracted criminal conduct” at the Trump Organization, including tax and insurance fraud and falsification of business records. Even if no charges were brought, Vance’s investigation could complicate any return to politics by Trump, who has lost some of his ability to communicate publicly after being permanently banned from Twitter and suspended for two years by Facebook. James’ office has been investigating whether the Trump Organization inflated the values of some properties to obtain better terms on loans, and lowered their values to obtain property tax breaks.

“If he conspired to get these classified documents with a member of the U.S. military, that’s fundamentally different than if somebody drops on your lap … to a press person, here is classified material,” Biden said in December 2010. The Obama administration never indicted Assange.”

Key Witness in US Case Against Assange Changes His Story (Lauria)

Given the First Amendment questions being raised about the Espionage Act case against a publisher, Stundin points out that the computer charges against Assange have taken on new significance. In weighing an indictment against Assange in 2010, the Obama administration, in the person of then Vice President Joe Biden, said it sought to prove that Assange did not merely receive stolen defense information but had participated in obtaining it. “If he conspired to get these classified documents with a member of the U.S. military, that’s fundamentally different than if somebody drops on your lap … to a press person, here is classified material,” Biden said in December 2010. The Obama administration never indicted Assange.

The central allegation in the Trump administration’s computer intrusion charge is that Assange was a “hacker” and worked with his source, U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, to crack a password to steal the U.S. government documents. Thordarson played a key role in supporting the Trump administration case that Assange engaged in hacking when he was interviewed in both Iceland, and then after being flown to Washington in 2019 at U.S. taxpayers’ expense. Stundin also reports that he was given an immunity deal by U.S. authorities. The DOJ statement at the release of the superseding indictment in June 2020 said:

“The new indictment does not add additional counts to the prior 18-count superseding indictment returned against Assange in May 2019. It does, however, broaden the scope of the conspiracy surrounding alleged computer intrusions with which Assange was previously charged. According to the charging document, Assange and others at WikiLeaks recruited and agreed with hackers to commit computer intrusions to benefit WikiLeaks. … In addition, the broadened hacking conspiracy continues to allege that Assange conspired with Army Intelligence Analyst Chelsea Manning to crack a password hash to a classified U.S. Department of Defense computer.”

A theme I’ve commented on 1000 times. No inflation without increasing velocity of money. Some prices may rise for different reasons, but not inflation.

They’re Wrong About Inflation (Jim Rickards)

Since late last summer, the main driver of rates has been an inflation narrative. The narrative is straightforward: The economy is recovering. Unemployment is declining. Employers can’t find enough workers. Wages are going up to attract help. Stimulus spending is coming by the trillions of dollars. The Fed is printing money. The economy is pushing up against capacity constraints. Add it all up, and inflation is right around the corner. Therefore, rates must go up. And when rates go up, the price of gold goes down. Markets have adopted this narrative. The yield-to-maturity on the 10-year Treasury note went from 0.508% on August 4, 2020 (about when gold peaked) to 1.745% on March 31, 2021. Gold prices went from over $2,021 per ounce to $1,686 per ounce over the same period. That’s a 16.5% drop in gold prices.

What if every part of the economic narrative is wrong? The economy was bound to recover from the pandemic recession of 2020, the worst since 1946. But, it appears the recovery is now running out of steam. For the record, the economy was weak before the pandemic hit. What if that weak growth trendline is now returning to form? The unemployment rate is declining, but real unemployment is not. We still have 7.6 million fewer jobs than before the pandemic, not counting the 10 million or more prime-age workers out of the labor force as described above. It’s true that wages are going up in some service industries such as restaurants and that workers are hard for some businesses to find. (McDonald’s is now offering $35,000 per year plus benefits and training for entry-level hires).

Still, overall wage levels are not rising significantly, and slack in the labor market is producing a powerful disinflationary overhang. Money printing is practically irrelevant because the velocity (or turnover) of money is still declining. What good is new money if the banks just give it back to the Fed as excess reserves, so the money is never spent or lent? Fiscal policy and handouts are not producing stimulus because debt levels are so high (the U.S. debt-to-GDP level is now 130%, the highest ever). Americans respond with precautionary savings and deleveraging. Data shows that 75% of the government handouts have either been saved or used to pay down debt (economically the same as saving). Only 25% have been used for consumption. That’s a pathetic amount of bang-for-the-buck.

We are seeing some supply-chain disruption and capacity constraints, especially in semiconductors, which affects automobile manufacturing. Still, manufacturers have not been able to pass through those constraints in the form of higher consumer prices. Inflation remains low once base effects from last year’s deflation are stripped out. Those base effects will disappear in the third quarter when the year-over-year comparison looks at the 2020 recovery rather than the recession. Inflation is dead in the water. I know that analysis puts me in the minority, but that’s OK; I’m used to that. I was also in the minority when I predicted Brexit and that Trump would win the 2016 election. The bottom line is, the consensus is often wrong.

    “Echo chamber here?”

    I disagree. Zerohedge comments are an echo chamber with a few trolls to spice it up. NC is an echo chamber who blocks anyone who questions the zietgiest. I’d be willing to listen to pro vaccine posts if they made sense. Problem is i haven’t seen any that made sense, heck i haven’t even read a covid “narrative” yet that has made sense. Except that i smell a rat

    @ zerosum

    I foresee a period when slaves working coal mines is economically vialke for awhile. Not long, though. If we’re not careful (we’re not), regions will collapse so rapidly and thoroughly that slavery will be too expensive… when you need that person for food.


    As for v accine-for-profit motivations: obviously the main motivator in this for the likes of big pharma, but there’s another level to this, one we saw when the covid craze first started: pharma entitiities looking to have the kick-ass vaccine.

    While covid — the actual virus — as experienced in most of Euromerica has been so mild as to disappear into waning flu statistics, there are places where people are dying in large numbers driven by variants and other factors. If, as we fear here, what I will call the Bossche Syndrome manifests, having a populace effective vaccinated against it will be a huge advantage as nationsd scramble to determine what they are Dr. Kovidian. Having a vaccine proven to actually work, in a safe manner, as the world flounders in Bosscher Syndrome pandemia, would be the finishing feather in Putin’s cap to turn Russia into the 21st Century’s Sanctuary for Sanity.

    Big pharm makes megabucks, Russia becomes the new Good Guy Nation, Russian populace becomes more cooperative with top-down mandates — a quality crucial to holding Russia together tyhrough the next few decades, Putin’s legacy enshrined, which is important not for Putin’s ego but his power in appointing a successor who is not a sociopathic power-climbing minion.

    Mr. House

    Heck i got a TDAP vaccine last summer, july i think it was. Actually had a strange reaction to that, red rash on my arms, very itchy, and occasional numbness in the arms also. Like i’ve said multiple times, Democrats and Republicans are mirror images or each other, just on a different side of the line. I try to straddle the line knowing neither is right or wrong, just extreme. I believe i had covid in Feb of 2020. Was miserable (i always seem to be miserable when i get the flu also) didn’t eat for three days and my description of what it felt like when i started to feel better can only be described as resurrection. cold and flu meds were all i took, but i was also 36 at the time so if i’d been in my 60’s or 70’s good chance i might not have made it.


    Yes, many Greeks don’t trust that the government cares for their health. They only have to visit a public hospital to see that.
    Today the PM announced that the young ppl who will get vaccinated will also get a bonus of 150 euros.
    Yes, many Greeks understand that the gov is desperate to vaccinate them and they don’t like it.
    They don’t like the public debate about privileges for the vaccinated and harsh measures against the unvaccinated.
    Yes, many Greeks are suspicious that the whole enterprise is highly dubious and very dangerous.


    I also recently commented on the Russian/Putin actions with regard to vaccines. It was something along the lines of Putin playing 14 dimensional chess. 😉 I don’t find it all that plausible that Putin is falling in line with the idiotic omg how can anyone be this stupid blood sucking give me all the money parasitic elites who are purportedly “leading” the western nations in the pandemic response.

    Sorry. In an angry mood today.


    anecdotal evidence
    In the fall of 2019 my spouse, ( age 75, 78), had a “virus/flue” infection.
    It was severe like never before and lasted more than one week.
    I got nothing from her coughing all over me.

    We are presently waiting for negative reaction to the second pfizer vaccine that we got 17 June 2021.

    Both time that we lined up for the vaccine, we were amazed at the number of “old people”, same age group as us, that appeared to be in poor health.

    Denninger makes the connection between drugs being pushed that are pricey (But have no real benefits, like the vax) with drugs like Ivermectin that work for cheap. Usually if the first thing I see in a Doctor’s office is a drug rep, my first instinct is to run because there are no ethics there. Unless I absolutely must, and then there will be much conflict.

    “We never give a measles shot to someone who had the measles. Why not?

    The scientific evidence is that they cannot get any benefit from it. While the measles vaccine is extremely safe and definitely safer than getting the measles there is no such thing as a completely safe drug. Ever. If you cannot get the measles because you’ve already had it and are immune then irrespective of how low the risk is it is unethical and gross malpractice to give you said shot because it is scientifically impossible for you to benefit from it.

    The question is always one of risk and benefit, both potential since no drug or vaccine is 100% effective and the risk of contracting an illness is never 100% for the person taking the drug. There is never any other evaluation, which is inherently personal to each individual’s medical situation, that is appropriate, ethical, moral or legal — period.

    For any drug, vaccine or other medical procedure or act where the benefit is statistically zero it is thus never, under any circumstance, acceptable to recommend, cajole or coerce someone into accepting it because if the potential benefit is zero then any amount of risk is unacceptable, no matter how low.”

    Wrote the following for some family/friends struggling with covid coercion syndrome: If anyone would point out errors or have suggestions, I’d be delighted! And I’m so good at being delighted.

    Russian “Sputnik” vaccine

    “Gam-COVID-Vac is a viral vector vaccine based on two recombinant replication-defective human adenoviruses: Ad26 (serotype 26) and Ad5 (serotype 5). The viruses contain the gene that encodes the full-length spike protein (S) of SARS-CoV-2 to stimulate an immune response.[6][15][18] Both doses contain (1.0 ± 0.5) × 1011 particles of gene.[1] Both Ad26 and Ad5 were modified to remove the E1 gene to prevent replication.[19]

    “The vaccine can be formulated in two ways: as a ready-to-use solution in water that is frozen at the common home-freezer storage temperature of −18 °C or 0 °F or lower; and as a freeze-dried powder, “Gam-COVID-Vac-Lyo”, whose storage temperature is above freezing, 2–8 °C or 36–46 °F, at the common home-refrigerator temperature. The freeze-dried powder must be reconstituted with water before use.[12] The lyophilized formulation of Gam-COVID-Vac is similar to the smallpox vaccine, circumventing the need for continuous “colder chain” or cold-chain storage – as required for the Pfizer–BioNTech and Moderna vaccines respectively – and allowing transportation to remote locations with reduced risk of vaccine spoilage.[13][14]”

    mRna (Euromerican vaccines) vaccine:

    “An RNA vaccine contains RNA which, when introduced into a tissue, acts as messenger RNA (mRNA) to cause the cells to build the foreign protein and stimulate an adaptive immune response which teaches the body how to identify and destroy the corresponding pathogen or cancer cells.”

    Russia’s vaccine uses an edited AND reproductively sterilized gene set to teach the antibodies that covid’s spike proteins are EVIL. It works well with extremely rare side effects.

    mRna teach the body (“into a tissue” not ‘into a cell’) to make EVIL spike proteins.

    First, it is bad to flood the body with junk proteins it recognizes as EVIL: if those spikes collect in human tissue (and this is proving to be a common consequent of the “jab”), the body will likely attack those tissues. Cytokine storm auto-immune overload. Make you very sick.

    Second, making all these spike proteins trains a buttload of your antibodies to become specialized spike killers that are useless otherwise. This means that a buncha of good solid general duty antibodies are put out of general service, having been drafted for the Covid War (CW), since the body only has so many antibody troops it can muster overall. A great many antibodies, once trained to attack spike proteins, won’t fight other bugs, as I understand the situation. They’re, like, Green Beret elites. But after awhile, the CW conscripts finish their term of service, and die or something. Your general immune system has been significantly weakened to other pathogens. Maybe you catch an ordinary head cold and die?… especially if your immune system has been weakened by a year and a half of social distancing, masks making you breathe your own pathogens and waste CO2 for long periods of time, lockdowns weakening your body via stress and stagnation while further weakening the immune system via lack of contact with other people and their pathogens. (A good army has to stay in training or it becomes too weak to effectively fight.)

    Third, it confers virtually no immunity. Your body can still mak copies of the covid virus and shed them contagiously, or so I understand although I don’t know why. The official narrative goes something like this: “Scientists are still learning how well vaccines prevent you from spreading the virus. We’re also still learning how long COVID-19 vaccines protect people.” The skeptical reports, that I hear from the brightest and least compromised/biased minds that the internet provides me with, are that mRna “vaccines” offer at best barely 2% non-transmissibility of the virus; getting the jab doesn’t protect others from you. You can get covid again and again although, hopefully, you’ll hardly notice after your first go round. Hopefully.

    Fourth, as implied above, those numbers also apply to the individual: at best, the “vaccine” prevents 2% of its recipients from getting infected. It allegedly helps prevent covid from becoming severe, but does virtually nothing to stop you from getting it again. In the process of reducing covid symptoms once contracted, it weakens your overall system while scarcely protecting you from repeat infections.

    Fifth, by killing off a specific kind of covid (as defined by its type of spike protein) in your body while allowing your body to be re-infected over and over puts very powerful selective mutation pressure to produce variants with a different spike protein. Some of those variants will be less harmful, others, like this Delta thingie, more harmful. So, rather than steadily weakening the virus to a small background population that most everyone is eventually mostly not susceptible to (full-blown herd immunity with, if necessary, yearly vaccine updates like the yearly flu vaccine), we will be creating a large population of super-covid along with a large population of sissy covid, making the situation both directly more lethal and that much more confusing.

    The “vaccine” is, best I can tell, MUCH worse than the disease it addresses.

    “nationsd scramble to determine what they are Dr. Kovidian”

    UNfinished joke or something about covid-killing or whatever. Got distracted. But at least I know when I’ve written gibberish, and that deserves a ribbon, ci?


    @Dr. D: just now found your post responding to the late 6/27 comments. About this: “Sorry, there can’t be a divorce. Red wouldn’t die: Blue would, colonized and treated as an African colony as planned. Red would be laid low though, and pressed to penury from all sides. …I mean more than now, if that’s possible.

    Agreed. I thought about “the ports” last night after commenting and reached the conclusion … who can do what without ports? I then hoped no one would notice the error in my comment. 😉

    You concluded: “I guess cutting off the bloodsucking cities from their state hosts would be an important first step in bringing them to heel. What was that about “representation”?”

    I’ll have to think about how that would play out. Complicated. Thank you for the input.

    okay, now do a hit piece on pfizer & moderna.

    i know 4 people who’ve had those experimentals. 3 became violently ill, requiring hospitalization for blood clots in the lungs and 1 died.

    i didn’t catch that anyone had become ill or died in this article about SputnikV.

    interesting, that.

    The Brazilian agency Avisa did not measure the amount of replicating Adenovirus. The do not have laboratories to do that. They relied on the information provided by the Gemalaya Institute where it was stated that they there are less then 100 particles per dose because that is the limit of the sensitivity of the test. The article published in Science describes the situation mich better than the here interviewed scientist.

    * Please don’t expose yourself and flounce off in public; Anger is like a storm rising up from the bottom of your consciousness. When you feel it coming, turn your focus to your breath until the storm passes

    * Which came first, the virus or the host? Covid was made for man and not man for Covid

    * The stakes are high; The world is all in on vaccines; The virus has an ace2 up its sleeve; Mankind will call the virus a cheater and pull out their Bowie knife but the Covid has a Derringer in its boot and will shoot first

    * Bat-Man virus transmission happened via unknown species; Penguin was suspected but it is now known it was an inside job and Robin invented it in the bat cave

    * Critical thinkers are elitists; You don’t think critically; No YOU don’t think critically

    * Perfectly Normal is the new normal; Boots on the ground will remain stuck in the mud; Biden is now bombing Syria and Iraq; Georgia and Ukraine want to join NATO so they can be on the right side of hysteresis

    * The Vaccine Chronicles
    – The third wave approaches

    – The only thing to fear is the loss of fear itself
    – CDC is sleeping with Big Pharma
    – The Delta Variant will cause outbreaks among the very dense leading to herd immunity

    * The US is resilient with the world’s largest reserves of hubris; The emperor has no gas and will need Russian oil to enforce sanctions against Russia; Putin is happy and Joe is delirious

    @Democritus: I noticed your public apology after reading further. Strong. Thank you.
    @Phoenix Voice: I was saying last summer that it might be good for Texas to let COVID spread to the young in the high vitamin-D months, and it seemed to go sort of OK, as such things might go. Your placing of the meme that Delta-Variant might be a good community vaccination strategy aligns with thoughts I have had since January or February of 2020, when I started seeing information suggesting a leak from Fort Detrick in May or June 2019 (COVID-presumed). There had been a 3 week chest cold going around from late summer , into winter 2019, consistent with a coronavirus. Jenny and I both had it. I got an antibody test in April 2020, when they came out, but scored negative. Wishful thinking… Currently, having avoided symptomatic illness so long, and having examined and treated so many positive patients, my current wishful thinking is that I’m cross-immune and vitamin-D-empowered, and probably have a guardian-angel (Anglo?) to boot.
    @people wondering about Russia g COVID-vaccination after Putin said it would be voluntary: The mayor of Moscow mandated it when Vlad was out meeting empty-Joe-the-leader-of-the-free-or-reduced-world. Russia has a lot of Sputnik vaccine, and probably wants to use it before it goes bad, like Israel tried to give late-dated-Pfizer to the Palestinians, who refused it, so Israel gave the shots to nice little Jewish boys and girls. Waste-not, want-not…
    Here is something interesting, a tidbit. Ukraine aint doin’ too badly without vaccine, because…
    “The Ukraine, however, has no vaccination. They refused the Russian vaccine; the West never provided them with Western vaccines. But nothing especially bad happened to the Ukrainians. Instead of vaccination, they treat covid with Ivermectin, and their results are better than those in neighbouring (vaccinated) Poland.” (That’s the end. Almost to the end, is the COVID vaccine stuff about Putin and the mayor of Moscow)

    : The main bad thing with genetic “vaccines” seems to be a bloodstream full of spike protein, which attaches to platelets, makes them clump-and-clot, and can remove them from the blood entirely, causing free-bleeding, like into the brain.
    You have done good homework. The DNA vaccines do induce spike-protein creation, but as you noted, they have a time-limiter, and they might stay in the muscle better than mRNA vaccines. I have not seen direct comparison data, and don’t expect it to appear, because researching it would be bad for business. We do know that the little lipid-membrane Trojan-horsies that carry mRNA into cells to impose the manufacture of spike protein upon the cells, CAN MIGRATE into the bloodstream (“To Infinity and BEYOND!”), so your ovaries, were you so afflicted, might make spike proteins. Since the trojan-mRNA-horsies got bloodborn, the blood bore them to organs in contact with the blood, so the regurgitated spike proteins can enter the blood. Another problem discovered with the mRNA messages-to-cells is that YOU CAN’T TURN THEM OFF. They are engineered to have much longer durability of function than regular mRNA, to go-and-go-and-go-and-go… Most cells in most people eventually get rid of the churning mRNA messengers, or the cell gets killed by the immune system, but there appears to be a WIDE variation in how long cells churn out spike protein. Lots of people never make it, like 24% don’t seem to get an antibody response to these vaccines (Sshh, Secret)
    On the Other hand, you have poor, noble, community-minded Hank Aaron bleed into his brain a little over 2 weeks after he got his vaccine on TV (Had to be buried, that story) “NATURAL CAUSES!” determined by no-autopsy.
    The spike protein directly attacks the endothelium, blood vessel lining, and causes clotting, ab=nd inflammation, but it also does a specific thing, which is to attach to platelets and make them clump, at which time the immune system attacks the clumps. If you have endless production of spike-protein into the blood, it might well kill you. Usual anticoagulants don’t stop this very specific process.
    You can get a big clot in your brain, millions of little clots in your lungs, or bleed in your gums, guts and brain, one not excluding the others.

    For anyone interested in the potential of Block Chain technology to change the game.

    The details are very daunting but a general grasp of the subject is doable.

    What is blockchain?


    Block Chains come in various flavors, as the article illustrates, Bitcoin uses a particular kind of decentralized Block Chain.

    Censorship and canceling are manifesting as cutting off payment to bloggers. for instance, for diverging from the official narrative.

    You can’t receive Paypal or Visa or any other centralized payment type.

    Take the SWIFT system of payments the US uses as a weapon to punish countries at don’t tow the line. A country not having access to SWIFT makes trade payments almost impossible.

    A decentralized Block Chain payment ledger (data) can’t be censored because there is no ‘there-there’. No central kill switch in the clearinghouse portion of the transaction like a SWIFT system has.

    Block chains get rid of the centralized ‘clearinghouse’ layer in a transaction.

    The centralized clearhouse function is replaced by a decentralized P2P network using a distributed ‘consensus’ clearing.

    “..Cryptography in blockchains makes the verification of data (i.e., transactions) trivial, and nearly impossible to forge…”

    Block Chain is not Bitcoin.

    Bitcoin however uses a particular configuration of Block Chain.

    The article does a decent job of explaining Block Chain as a database/accounting ledger invention.

    MOSCOW, June 26. / TASS /. About 2,000 patients with COVID-19 are hospitalized in the capital every day, said Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin on Saturday.
    “We hospitalize about 2,000 people per day. Those are only the ones we take into the hospital. And there are so many people that come to examine the patient, bring him to the CT center. Of course, that creates a lot of stress for the medical system, but now it is almost completely normalized,” Sobyanin said in an interview with the Rossiya-1 TV channel.
    He specified that 20,000 beds were set up in Moscow to treat patients with COVID-19. “Today, a little more than 14,000 are occupied, approaching 15,000. That’s a large volume. We are already accustomed to such large numbers. In general, we have only 35,000 beds in the Moscow health care system that work for emergency planned assistance and 20,000 have been created just for covid patients,”


    TAE summary – that could have been your best yet. Hilarious.

    Madamski – thank you for your self-reflection and your Vaccine synopsis/summary – very useful and already sent off to a friend ‘who gets me’
    Also – re the anger and frustration – I think we will all be feeling it and good to check in here if anyone is feeling upset or emotional, just let us/me know and I am sure we will be able to lend support. These are difficult times. And during difficult times ya need friends – even disembodied diaspora can be friends – lookin’ at you upstateNYer.

    Zerohedge comments are an echo chamber with a few trolls to spice it up. NC is an echo chamber who blocks anyone who questions the zietgiest.

    I have a love-hate relationship with NC. The blog is fantastic in that they cover a wide range of important topics that would otherwise be off my radar. But I try to stay away from the comments section because no dissent is permitted, or even any nuanced counterpoint. The site is run by a gaggle of well-meaning authoritarians who get things right most of the time, but not always. Read the articles but avoid the comments.


    Brief Australia Report

    The attitude here overwhelmingly is pro-vaccine. Endless propaganda. Doubters are ignored. The precautionary principle is ignored. Politicians, much of the medical community, academics, left- and right-wing media, and so on all suport jabbing. (Hmmm: new Star Wars character: Jabba the Nut ?)

    Sydney and now Canberra are resuming mandatory mask-wearing, for 2 weeks initially while the NSW government attempts to trace a small number of people. Is the Delta variant really so incredibly infectious? I have no way of telling.

    We’ve had the beta and delta variants, and maybe an epsilon is around the corner. Don’t know if a gamma was identified. At this rate we can make our way through the Greek alphabet and when we get to the omega variant we all drop dead. I’m getting to the stage where I would welcome that…

    Then we get stories such as the one in the ABC yesterday about a super-spreader party somewhere in Sydney where 40-odd people got infected and 6 didn’t. The 6 were all vaccinated. Ta-da! True? Why not? This vaccine must be good to some extent, otherwise the public would notice (wouldn’t they?) and turn against it.

    There is serious talk among TPTB in at least NSW to introduce vaccine passports, based of course on apps on the almost ubiquitous mobile cell phone. Ownership and carriage of a cell phone isn’t mandatory yet, but I suspect it will become so. We so enjoy our fetters.

    United States Senator, Ron Johnson, held a press conference today (Monday) where he provided several people that were injured by the vaccine the opportunity to tell their stories. It might not be on youtube/Google for long, but here is a link. Worth the time:

    Excellent work. The simpletons among us will hate to read TAE’s denounciation of the lies being used to lure us into authoritarianism. The simpletons still think that WMDs existed, that Kennedy was shot by a lone gunman, that a few hundred people tried to take over the country on 1/6, even though Biden pointed out that they didn’t have the necessary F15s and nukes.

    The simpletons are our enemy because they refuse to see reality. Despite calling them simpletons, in my experience the simpletons cannot be identified simply by level of intelligence. The simpletons – I call them that because they are people who want the world to be simple where the government is your mother, your neighbors are your friends, you want for nothing and you have nothing to fear – are people who find it hard to remain rational because their emotional side, driven by fear, hijacks their thinking and overwhelms their unemotional rational thought.

    The thought of the government lying to the people in order to harm the people is such a big step for simpletons – and they are intelligent enough to understand the potential repercusions of such a position, such as society is a meaningless concept when the government is an adversary- that they cannot think about it rationally. Their response is to reject such a suggestion: it is a leap too far.

    The video I attached above includes a statement by the mother of Maddie de Garay, Stephanie de Garay. She volunteered her child to participate in the clinical trial for one of the mRNA experimental vaccines. Heartbreaking…

    The universal story these folks are telling is one where there is zero attempt by the drug manufacturers to make even a modest attempt to try & understand what happened to these people and use that knowledge to prevent harm in future experimental vaccine recipients. You take that shot today, there is no effort whatsoever to correct the sins of the past. They are literally making billions. And they don’t give one shit.

    island raider

    Hey, wait a minute aspnaz! My neighbors are my friends… At least they used to be until they learned that we are unwilling to accept the experimental vaccine. Now they don’t invite us to cocktails anymore. Never mind…

    Some warnings, from the New England Journal of Medicine, which parents should consider before having their children get injected with a Covid vaccine:

    The United States has developed a robust system for vaccine-injury compensation to alleviate the burdens of adverse medical consequences of vaccines. But this system will be unavailable to people who receive Covid-19 vaccines during the declared public health emergency. All potential vaccine recipients, and especially people in high-risk communities, therefore face a dilemma: should they risk becoming infected or risk having a vaccine injury without sufficient access to compensation?

    Normally, once the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves a vaccine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends it for children or pregnant women, injury compensation is available for any recipient through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). The VICP covers the majority of vaccines administered in the United States. This no-fault program was created to provide an alternative legal avenue to ensure quick and fair compensation for vaccine injuries and to insulate manufacturers from liability to encourage them to pursue vaccine development. In many cases, claimants who develop recognized symptoms within a certain time frame after vaccination don’t need to prove that the injuries were caused by the vaccine, which leaves in question only the extent of damages. Successful claims and attorneys’ fees are paid out of the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund, and they have exceeded $4 billion to date.1 Since 2015, the fund has paid out an average total of $216 million to an average of 615 claimants each year.

    The declaration of a public health emergency by the Department of Health and Human Services in March 2020, however, resulted in exclusion of Covid-19 vaccine injuries from the VICP. This declaration triggered the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act, a federal law that requires that all people injured by vaccines given as countermeasures during a declared emergency bring claims under only the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP). The CICP is far less generous and less accessible than the VICP. It compensates people for only the most serious injuries, has a higher burden of proof than the VICP, has a 1-year statute of limitations after the date of vaccination, and limits awards for damages. For example, the CICP limits lost-income recovery to $50,000 for each year out of work and doesn’t include compensation for pain, suffering, or emotional distress.

    As a result, people who are vaccinated during the declared public health emergency will be less likely to obtain compensation for injuries associated with Covid-19 vaccines than they would be for injuries from vaccines included in the VICP. Furthermore, the process for pursuing compensation will be lengthier, more difficult, and more expensive because reimbursement for attorneys’ fees is unavailable. People vaccinated during a declared public health emergency can never pursue injury claims under the VICP, even if their symptoms manifest or are linked to the vaccine after the declaration is lifted.
