Trusted News Initiative (TNI).

The WHO is funded by Big Pharma. “Originally funded entirely by member states, the organization now receives less than 20% of its budget from these states and the rest from donors with their own financial and strategic agendas.”

Conflict of Interest in WHO Recommendation Against Ivermectin (TSN)

All dangerous diseases are best treated early. A major failure of the global COVID-19 strategy has been to wait a week for the disease to become dangerous, when breathing becomes a problem. Early treatment of COVID, even for those with mild symptoms, prevents later hospitalization. There are several early treatment drugs showing promise but ivermectin leads the pack regarding safety, effectiveness and price. Unfortunately, the biggest players in Western mainstream media are members of the Trusted News Initiative (TNI). The TNI is a story for another day but it’s remarkable that big media companies barely report that they have agreed to promote global vaccination and to make sure any “disinformation myths are stopped in their tracks”[i].

Unfortunately, as a result early treatment seems to be seen as a disinformation myth and is not mentioned. Early treatment is vital in treating serious diseases and COVID-19 is no exception. Considering the human and economic cost, the avoidance of early treatment with a very safe, effective and off-patent drug is a criminal tragedy of immense proportions and a winning lottery ticket for some pharmaceutical companies that are designing and selling novel patented drugs that could not compete with ivermectin in a free market. Mercks’ molnupiravir, for instance, is seeking an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA and “Merck will receive approximately $1.2 billion to supply approximately 1.7 million courses of molnupiravir to the United States government.”[ii]

Ivermectin doesn’t need an EUA because it passed trials in 1986. It just needs to be recommended to treat COVID-19. However, if ivermectin was officially recognized as an effective treatment, it would legally prevent molnupiravir’s EUA until it passes trials and thus delay or endanger the $1.2 billion deal. An aggravating factor is the fact that molnupiravir (EIDD-2801) could cause harmful genetic mutations. [iii]

In the face of a public health crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic, government authorities and international organizations have traditionally looked to the World Health Organization (WHO) for guidance – trusting that the WHO is free of commercial interests. Originally funded entirely by member states, the organization now receives less than 20% of its budget from these states and the rest from donors[iv] with their own financial and strategic agendas. Margret Chan, the previous Director General of the WHO, said in 2015: “I have to take my hat and go around the world to beg for money and when they give us the money [it is] highly linked to their preferences, what they like. It may not be the priority of the WHO, so if we do not solve this, we are not going to be as great as we were”. [v]

“Majority of Covid deaths are the fully vaccinated and A&E attendance is breaking records”

Evidence of Antibody Dependent Enhancement? (DE)

Are we beginning to see evidence of ‘Antibody Dependent Enhancement’ (ADE) due to the Covid-19 vaccines in the United Kingdom? The latest data on hospitalisations and deaths allegedly due to Covid-19 certainly suggests so. ADE can arise in several different ways but the best-known is dubbed the ‘Trojan Horse Pathway’. This occurs when non-neutralizing antibodies generated by past infection or vaccination fail to shut down the pathogen upon re-exposure. Instead, they act as a gateway by allowing the virus to gain entry and replicate in cells that are usually off limits (typically immune cells, like macrophages). That, in turn, can lead to wider dissemination of illness, and over-reactive immune responses that cause more severe illness. Barry Bloom, MD, PhD, of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health explanation of ADE is as follows – “The cause of ADE is having antibodies to a virus that don’t neutralize it. That enables the virus to be gobbled up by cells that have receptors for antibodies, but not the virus. That’s the way of getting virus into cells that it ordinarily would not infect,”.


ADE can also occur when neutralizing antibodies (which bind the virus and stop it from causing infection) are present at low enough levels that they don’t protect against infection. Instead, they can form immune complexes with viral particles, which in turn leads to worse illness. [..] In previous clinical trials of vaccine candidates to combat SARS and MERS, the studies each failed during the animal phase due to ADE also known as pathogenic priming or a cytokine storm. Phase three clinical trials are designed to uncover frequent or severe side effects before a vaccine is approved for use, including ADE. But here in lies the problem, none of the Covid-19 vaccines have completed phase three clinical trials. The Pfizer phase three trial is not due to complete until April 6th 2023.

Did Pfizer Fail to Perform industry Standard Animal Testing? (TSN)

The current mRNA vaccines are theorized to act locally in draining lymphoid tissue. Formulated lipid nanoparticles that contain mRNA able to produce the spike protein are syringe injected into a muscle such as the deltoid (shoulder muscle). Once the injection occurs, the muscle cells near the injection site are impacted by the mRNA-based vaccine (e.g. the lipid nanoparticles), while much of the dose moves into the intracellular fluid surrounding the muscle cells and consequently drains to lymph nodes. According to this theory, a properly functioning mRNA-based vaccine is delivered into and drives production of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein in muscle and lymph node cells. The cells then produce the Spike protein, which is then moved to the surface of these cells where it becomes attached.

The foreign virus Spike protein then triggers the immune system to recognize and attack any cell in the body that is either infected by SARS-CoV-2 or has Spike protein on its surface. The vaccine was designed so that the Spike protein is affixed via a transmembrane anchor region, so that it cannot circulate around the body via the bloodstream. The same general scenario applies to all mRNA-based vaccines as well as recombinant adenoviral vectored vaccines (such as the J&J vaccine) designed to use gene-therapy technology to express Spike protein in cells and tissues. This general strategy is designed to reduce the risk that any residual vaccine dose that does somehow end up in the bloodstream (or organs and tissues) ends up not being a safety risk due to unintended biologic effects.

Spike protein will remain affixed to cell surfaces, and therefore is not released into the blood where circulating Spike might cause problems by binding to its natural target, ACE-2 receptors. However, any cell that has Spike protein (or protein fragments) anchored on its membrane or displayed on MHC antigen-presenting molecules becomes a target for vaccine-activated immune cells and antibodies, which would then attack, damage or kill those cells in the same way that SARS-CoV-2 virus-infected cells would be attacked. In other words, if very active mRNA delivery particles or recombinant adenoviral-vectored vaccines spread throughout the body, the resulting production of the vaccine antigen (Spike, in this case) will both stimulate immunity and also cause those same cells to be attacked by the immune system. If this actually happens, the resulting “vaccine reactogenicity” could resemble clinical symptoms seen with autoimmune syndromes.

“A consenting adult has the right to choose to do dangerous things.”

More Crazy (Denninger)

HCQ, I remind you, is used by millions of people with Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis in the United States alone. If it caused heart attacks in one person out of 150 and screwed up the hearts of 10% of the rest not one doctor would prescribe it for either condition as that is wildly dangerous and will kill people outright a decent percentage of the time. Ivermectin, I remind you, has a record across several billion doses administered of one serious adverse event (defined: lands you in the hospital) in roughly every 600,000 people who take it. It is for this reason that it is considered safe enough to buy over the counter in many nations and is handed out by non-medical personnel all over sub-Saharan Africa. Indeed doing that has basically eliminated river blindness, a disease that formerly devastated entire regions.

As for Covid and other viral infections there is plenty of science on multiple mechanisms of action that are likely involved. Yet pharma, the FDA, NIH and CDC all are aligned against it and did not run large, formal studies for early treatment despite being safer to do so than recommending you take Tylenol or aspirin because there’s no money in it; the drug costs pennies. HCQ is similarly cheap and it too was never formally studied by these so-called “agencies” either. Now let’s talk about the shots. 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.

(Incidentally for the religiously-bent about vaccines generally who have been flooding my email inbox you’re wasting your time; I have long since told my spam filter to throw your repeated screaming into the trashcan unread. My objection is with this specific set of shots because the data says they’re wildly dangerous in healthy people compared with the illness itself, even without early treatment and definitely when compared to outcomes with treatment.) For comparison Tylenol kills about 500 people in the US a year. If every person in the US had used Ivermectin for the last year it would have killed fewer people than that. That is what the data says, and we could have easily handed it out to any and all who wanted it and get the natural data resulting from it.

There was no statistically-measurable risk in doing so compared against common over-the-counter medicines that anyone can buy anywhere at any time and thus there was no ethical, moral or legal justification for failing to do so in the face of a pandemic for which there were no approved and known-effective treatments. A consenting adult has the right to choose to do dangerous things. This is why we test drugs on consenting adults first even through we know they might not only fail to work they might harm you. Only after years or even decades of such testing do we contemplate testing them on children and only when we have a reasonably-full understanding of the risks.

“The medics who signed the letter argued that that the CDC should be given “a few weeks to produce robust and convincing data”

Singapore Doctors Call To Halt Covid Vaccination Of Teens (RT)

A group of medics have penned an “urgent open letter” to Singapore’s expert committee on Covid-19 vaccination, calling for the inoculation of youths to be ceased until the US CDC clarifies why a teenage jab recipient died. Written on “on behalf of many concerned pediatricians, primary care physicians, specialists, surgeons and GPs” and signed by a number of Singaporean medical professionals, the letter was posted on Facebook on Saturday. Its authors urged the authorities to “consider a short delay” in vaccinating youths with messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) jabs in view of the recent incident in the US. Earlier this week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) started an investigation into the death of a 13-year-old from Saginaw, Michigan, which occurred three days after he got his second shot of an unnamed coronavirus vaccine.

Vaccines made by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson have received emergency approval in the US, and all three of them are also in use in Singapore. The medics who signed the letter argued that that the CDC should be given “a few weeks to produce robust and convincing data” on the teen’s death and the possibility of a link to the inoculation. They insist the issue is urgent because Singapore is pursuing “one of the most aggressive” mRNA programs in the world, in which at least 200,000 teenage boys are expected to be vaccinated. “Certainly, we do not want to see any more suspected vaccine-related deaths in any young persons in the prime of their life,” the letter said.

As concerns spread, Singaporean parents have also launched a petition, asking the authorities of the island city-state to suspend the vaccination of those under 30, especially school kids from 12 to 15 years of age, until the CDC probe is complete. It has so far been signed by some 2,000 people.

“The UAE has the highest vaccination rate in the world..”

Abu Dhabi To Ban Unvaccinated People From Most Public Places (F.)

The United Arab Emirates has introduced some of the world’s harshest restrictions for unvaccinated people in its push to encourage uptake of the shot, announcing Monday that residents of its capital city Abu Dhabi who aren’t yet inoculated will be banned from most public places. The emirate’s media office said in a series of tweets that it is introducing the ban to encourage vaccinations and preserve public health, though 93% of target groups have been vaccinated. The ban will go into effect Aug. 20, giving the city’s residents some time to get vaccinated against the virus before the measures are enacted. Once that date rolls around, those without the shot will not be allowed to enter public and private schools, universities, nurseries, shopping centers, restaurants, cafes, gyms, museums, theme parks, resorts and all other retail outlets. The main exceptions are retail outlets selling essential goods, such as supermarkets and pharmacies, which all people will still be allowed to enter regardless of their vaccination status.


The order—which the media office said was approved by the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Committee—will not apply to children under the age of 16 and those who have an official reason to be exempt from vaccination. “The committee stated the decision would enhance safety in areas that have been subject to additional precautionary measures and provide enhanced protection for community members,” the Abu Dhabi Government Media Office said in its statement. The UAE has the highest vaccination rate in the world, boasting a rate of 154 doses administered per 100 people, according to a tracker run by The New York Times. Though it has not shared updated data on how many people have been fully or partially vaccinated, Reuters estimates the number of doses it has administered (over 15 million) means around 77.1% of the country’s population has been fully inoculated.

Immoral or amoral?

Greece Offers Youngsters 150 Euros To Get Vaccinated (K.)

The Greek government announced it will offer a pre-paid card with 150 euros to young people aged 18-25 to get at least one shot of a vaccine against Covid-19, as an incentive to increase the number of inoculations in the country. The card, dubbed “freedom-pass” by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, will cover costs in travel and entertainment, such as plane and ferry tickets, hotel bookings, music, theatre and cinema, museums and archaeological sites. Presenting the card at the start of a meeting with ministers on Monday, the prime minister said he acknowledged the toll the long months of lockdown have had on the social life of young people.


“This is a debt to our youth, a gift of gratitude, particularly ahead of the summer. [It is] a ‘thank you’ for their patience and perseverance,” he told the ministers at the televised message. “At the same time, however, it is also an incentive for young people in particular to be vaccinated, who, by their very nature, contribute more to movement. And the more they are shielded [against the virus], the more we will limit the transmission of the virus.” Mitsotakis said this is especially true as countries are facing the more transmissible delta variant of the coronavirus, which targets primarily those who have not been vaccinated “but is threatening everyone.”

“..a private Chicago-based non-profit called the Center for Tech and Civic Life, which received $350-million from Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg to arrange grants targeted at swing districts in Democratic strongholds such as Milwaukee, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Atlanta, for the purpose of hiring ballot harvesters, among other activities.”

Falsehood Rules (Kunstler)

Now there is one official forensic audit of the 2020 election underway in Maricopa County, Arizona, (the Phoenix metro area), ordered by the State Senate, and some conclusions from phase one, involving the paper ballots, are due to be released this week, with additional phases to come concerning the Dominion voting machines. Many other state legislatures sent delegations to Arizona to learn the ins-and-outs of conducting a forensic audit, and they are making noises about actually doing it. So, in stepped Attorney General Merrick Garland. At the start of the Arizona audit, he sent a letter to the Arizona State Senate threatening to use the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ to halt the audit on the basis of depriving voters of their civil rights. Arizona responded by promising to jail any federal officials who laid their hands on any ballots. That was the end of that gambit for now — they may try it again in phase two.

In the meantime, a county judge in Georgia (one Brian Amero) has ruled that 147,000-odd ballots alleged to have chain-of-custody problems must be made available for inspection, and also that five members of the Fulton County (Atlanta Metro Area) Board of Elections are now individually parties to the lawsuit brought by nine Georgia voters, and may be subject to deposition (being questioned under oath). That is believed to be the beginning of an effort to conduct a full audit in Georgia. So, again, in steps Attorney General Merrick Garland with his Civil Rights Division, led by political activist Kristen Clarke, bringing a lawsuit against the Georgia election reform act passed earlier this year — a shot over Georgia’s bow, shall we say. Ms. Clarke happens to be a colleague of Georgia activist Stacey Abrams, a former Democratic candidate for governor.

Ms. Abrams is also a part-owner of a company, NOWaccount, that does payroll for a private company called Happy Faces, which furnished dozens of poll workers to tally the 2020 election in Georgia, as well as the 2021 US Senate runoff election that put two Democrats, John Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, in office. Elections are supposed to be conducted by public officials, not by private entities. Supposedly, the Georgia election officials turned to Happy Faces because it was a way to avoid hiring workers for less than 30 hours-a-week, which would have otherwise required providing them with health care under ObamaCare, the ACA Act. Was that legal? It has not been adjudicated.

Nor has the much bigger scandal of a private Chicago-based non-profit called the Center for Tech and Civic Life, which received $350-million from Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg to arrange grants targeted at swing districts in Democratic strongholds such as Milwaukee, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Atlanta, for the purpose of hiring ballot harvesters, among other activities. Mr. Zuckerberg met with Kristen Clarke, Stacey Abrams, Al Sharpton, and other Democratic activists at a dinner in 2019, at which he promised to help. Did his help cross any legal boundaries? It has not been investigated, nor has the use of the company he runs, Facebook, in its campaign to influence public opinion by blocking news and deleting accounts of non-Democrats exclusively.

Google Tumbles As Biden Revives Trump-Era Antitrust Probe (ZH)

Minutes after news that a judge had dismiss an FTC anti-monopoly lawsuit against Facebook sent the social-media giant’s market capitalization past the $1 trillion mark, Google has just been hit by some disappointing news on the anti-trust front. Google shares tumbled heading into the close on reports that the Biden Administration was planning to revive a Trump-era investigation into Google’s display ad business. While a judge has granted some relief for Facebook, potentially taking it out of the sights of the FTC, which is now being led by anti-monopoly pioneer Lina Khan, it’s clear the Biden Administration hasn’t given up on scrutinizing American Big Tech.

According to Bloomberg, which broke the news Monday afternoon, antitrust investigators at the DoJ have stepped up scrutiny of Google’s digital advertising practices in recent months, a sign that the Biden administration is “actively pursuing a probe that started under former President Donald Trump.” DoJ sued Google last year over claims the Alphabet-owned company was abusing its dominance in the internet search market, its biggest business. Any additional legal action, including whether to bring a second suit, will likely depend on whoever is chosen as the assistant attorney general overseeing the antitrust division. It will be up to that person to decide whether to proceed, and it’s possible the government will bring no action against the company.

Staffers from the DoJ’s antitrust office have reportedly interviewed several of Google’s competitors about the firm’s practices in the advertising technology market. The probe places a target on the company’s second-most important business, according to people familiar with the action, who asked not to be identified discussing the early stage probe.

“..the bar becomes “nothing but a continuation of politics by other means.”

Why Giuliani’s Suspension Should Worry All Lawyers (Turley)

Lawyers often make sensational, false claims that inflame public opinion, such as insisting former Attorney General William Barr violently cleared D.C.’s Lafayette Square last year to arrange for Trump’s controversial photo op outside St. John’s Episcopal Church. The claim outraged many Americans, even though there was no evidence to prove it; several lawyers repeated the photo op myth as fact on TV. An inspector general and a federal court both later debunked the myth, but the damage was done: To this day, many people believe it. Nevertheless, I do not believe any lawyers should be suspended for such claims, which should be protected as free speech. The New York court brushes over the free speech implications of its ruling with a conclusory statement that Giuliani knowingly misrepresented facts, even though it did not afford him a hearing on that or other questions.

It is not enough to declare “Don’t be like Giuliani.” What is missing in this opinion is a clear standard for when the failure to establish a case — as Giuliani failed to do with his election fraud claims — is a disbarring offense. In reality, many cases collapse in court over insufficient evidence. Election challenges are made without access to critical records or data held by election boards or officials — indeed, litigants often go to court to gain such access. Likewise, public interest lawyers often bring cases against the government, which classifies or withholds evidence. When I litigated the Area 51 case, I was suing a base that the government claimed did not exist, and all information about it was classified; we prevailed in establishing environmental violations but only after years of intense litigation and denials.

The concern in this case is that we are seeing a weaponization of bar investigations after a wide (and well-funded) campaign to harass Republican lawyers, their firms and their clients after the 2020 election. And it has worked: Many law firms are unwilling to take on Republican or conservative causes for fear of being targeted. The Giuliani opinion fuels those concerns. Despite a damning account of exaggerations and falsehoods, it often reads more like a venting — rather than a vetting — of grievances against Giuliani. Instead of issuing a well-deserved reprimand, the court declared Giuliani to be a public menace if allowed to continue practicing law, even for the period of his own adjudication. The premature suspension made little sense.

The bar was focused on Giuliani’s public statements, which will continue unabated by any suspension. Nevertheless, the suspension thrilled many in today’s bloodsport politics. Yet while the court seemed to apply a special “Giuliani rule,” it is unlikely to stay that way if — to paraphrase Carl von Clausewitz — the bar becomes “nothing but a continuation of politics by other means.”

“This is so small that I can’t believe I’m going to have to try a case like this.”

Manhattan DA Says No Charges For Trump: Lawyer (ZH)

President Trump’s attorney said on Monday that Manhattan DA Cy Vance has indicated that he has no plans to charge the Trump Organization with crimes related to allegations of “hush money” payments or manipulated real estate values, according to Politico. New York attorney Ronald Fischetti said that during a meeting last week he asked Vance’s team for any details related to charges up for consideration, to which Vance’s team replied that while they are considering charges against the Trump Organization and individual employees related to alleged failures to pay taxes on corporate benefits – widely reported to include cars and apartments, the potential charges only involve a small number of executives. “We asked, ‘Is there anything else?” Fischetti told Politico. “They said, ‘No.’”


When asked if the meeting touched on allegations made by Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen and by adult film star and director Stormy Daniels, Fischetti replied, “Nothing. Not a word on that.” Fischetti also said that Vance’s team told him they will not bring charges against Trump himself when the first indictment comes down. “They just said, ‘When this indictment comes down, he won’t be charged. Our investigation is ongoing,’” he said. According to the Washington Post, Vance’s team is set to proceed with the charges unless otherwise persuaded not to. Fischetti says he expects them to drop this week or next. “It’s like the Shakespeare play Much Ado About Nothing,” he said, adding “This is so small that I can’t believe I’m going to have to try a case like this.”

BAU. Twitter: “Defense stocks took off like a rocket when Biden was elected, now up 40%.”

Biden’s Lawless Bombing of Iraq and Syria (Greenwald)

For the second time in the five months since he was inaugurated, President Joe Biden on Sunday ordered a U.S. bombing raid on Syria, and for the first time, he also bombed Iraq. The rationale offered was the same as Biden’s first air attack in February: the U.S., in the words of Pentagon spokesman John Kirby, “conducted defensive precision airstrikes against facilities used by Iran-backed militia groups in the Iraq-Syria border region.” He added that “the United States acted pursuant to its right of self-defense.” Embedded in this formulaic Pentagon statement is so much propaganda and so many euphemisms that, by itself, it reveals the fraudulent nature of what was done.

To begin with, how can U.S. airstrikes carried out in Iraq and Syria be “defensive” in nature? How can they be an act of “self-defense”? Nobody suggests that the targets of the bombing campaign have the intent or the capability to strike the U.S. “homeland” itself. Neither Syria nor Iraq is a U.S. colony or American property, nor does the U.S. have any legal right to be fighting wars in either country, rendering the claim that its airstrikes were “defensive” and an “act of self-defense” to be inherently deceitful. The Pentagon’s description of the people bombed by the U.S. — “Iran-backed militias groups” — is intended to obscure the reality. Biden did not bomb Iran or order Iranians to be bombed or killed.

The targets of U.S. aggression were Iraqis in their own country, and Syrians in their own country. Only the U.S. war machine and its subservient media could possibly take seriously the Biden administration’s claim that the bombs they dropped on people in their own countries were “defensive” in nature. Invocation of Iran has no purpose other than to stimulate the emotional opposition to the government of that country among many Americans in the hope that visceral dislike of Iranian leaders will override the rational faculties that would immediately recognize the deceit and illegality embedded in the Pentagon’s arguments.

Beyond the propagandistic justification is the question of legality, though even to call it a question dignifies it beyond what it merits. There is no conceivable Congressional authorization — none, zero — to Biden’s dropping of bombs in Syria. Obama’s deployment of CIA operatives to Syria and years of the use of force to overthrow Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad never had any Congressional approval of any kind, nor did Trump’s bombing of Assad’s forces (urged by Hillary Clinton, who wanted more), nor does Biden’s bombing campaign in Syria now. It was and is purely lawless, illegal.

Nike Partners WIth CCP With New Slogan ‘Just Obey It’ (BBee)

On the heels of the CEO proudly declaring Nike is a brand “of China, and for China,” the company has unveiled a new marketing campaign honoring the glorious Chinese Communist Party with the inspiring slogan “Just Obey It.” “The idea of obedience to brutal and murderous regimes really encapsulates the ethos Nike is going for as a brand,” said Chief Marketing Officer Bingbong Van Hummus. “The People’s Republic of China represents our highest ideals, and we hope to inspire athletes around the world to join us in the most important thing any high-performer can do: Just Obey.”


New apparel featuring the “Just Obey It” slogan is already being produced in Uyghur concentration camps by slaves, and Nike is optimistic about having their new products in the hands of progressive American athletes in the next few weeks. “As long as we don’t run into any delays– you know, from our slaves refusing to obey, we’ll be shipping from the beautiful and powerful country of China very soon!” said Van Hummus. Nike also announced they will be releasing a new Uyghur-inspired shoe with built-in iron shackles.

Olympics To Kick Off With Ceremonial Lighting Of The American Flag

The 2020 Olympic Games will be kicking off next month with the ceremonial lighting of the American flag, a beloved pastime where American athletes who were given every opportunity to succeed get to show how much they hate America. “Before the Games, American athletes will get to show much they hate their country by taking the ceremonial torch and burning the flag,” said one commentator on ESPN. “We always feel the importance and gravity of this moment at every Olympic Games. As the torchbearer approaches the flag and lights it up, solemnly declaring to everyone that the U.S. is a horribly racist and oppressive country, I can’t help but shed a few tears.” “Stunning and, you guessed it, brave.” One Chinese gymnast suggested she would burn her own country’s flag as well, since the government kidnapped her family and forced her to compete at gunpoint, but she has since disappeared.

    Today in Australia – Vaccinees now have indemnity for any adverse reactions related to Astra Zeneca, as long as it is through a GP who will give informed risks – (what info I don’t know).
    Is this going to cripple the Govt.? I think it will get very hard in the long term to prove adverse reactions but in the short term it is good news for people getting jabbed.

    I understand that Nature yesterday published an article, and the NYT commented on it, and Health Day comments on that:

    Pfizer, Moderna Vaccines May Stand Guard Against COVID for Years

    My first thought was that if the mRNA vaxx protect for years, that must mean they induce the production of Spike proteins for years. But that’s not what this appears to say:

    immune cells that recognize the virus lingered in bone marrow for at least eight months after COVID-19 infection. Another team found that memory B-cells continue to mature and strengthen for at least a year after infection, the Times reported.

    Those findings suggested that immunity might last years, possibly a lifetime, in people who were infected and later vaccinated. But whether vaccination alone might demonstrate the same power was unclear.

    After an infection or a vaccination, a specialized structure called the germinal center forms in lymph nodes, the researchers explained. This structure is where B-cells are trained. After infection with the coronavirus, the germinal center forms in the lungs. But after vaccination, the cells’ education takes place in lymph nodes in the armpits, within reach of researchers.

    Guest Essay
    Vaccine Mandates Are Coming. Good.
    June 28, 2021

    “……
    When the United States was fighting smallpox long ago, it took mandates to get enough people vaccinated. To eradicate polio, the same was true. Nearly all major infectious diseases in the country — measles, mumps, rubella, pertussis, diphtheria and more — have been managed through vaccine mandates by schools. The result is that the vast majority of children are vaccinated, and in time, they grow into adults who are vaccinated. That’s how the country achieves real herd immunity.

    But this process can take decades. Covid-19 is an emergency, and we don’t have that much time.

    The mRNA vaccines, made by Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech, will likely get full approval for use from the Food and Drug Administration soon, which may be necessary for broader vaccine mandates. Although the vaccines are already known to be safe and effective, after being given to hundreds of millions of people, with full approval, more groups will begin mandating that their employees get vaccinated. It’s unlikely the United States can overcome the pandemic without such actions….”

    Don’t worry, he says this does not mean they will hold you down–just take away your right to go most places. And hey, he’s fine with some medical and religious exceptions.

    I’m waiting for reports of the first stonings of the unvaxxed.

    If this was a disease that was causing 5% of the general working age population to drop dead, you can bet 99% would be in line to get vaccinated. But it’s not. And why, between all the people vaxxed and all the people previously infected and the apparently large percentage of the population not affected, don’t we have the mysterious “herd immunity?”

    Why are they discussing vaccinating every child and college student without discussing the actual dangers presented to these demographics by the disease itself? Oh, right, George Washington. And science.

    Let’s see the coverage of World Ivermectin Day. I like the idea, but man, the wall around the MSM is proving to be virtually impenetrable by facts.

    Biological Platforms,

    The Wellcome (Great) Leap (Forward) is a newly constituted civilianized medical DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Agency), managed by a recent DARPA director with strong interests in genetic engineering and human neural network management, as well as MEMS, microelectrical-mechanical systems, cellular level micro machines, which might be injectable. Monitoring a lot of human babies with wearable neurological sensors, through their first 1000 days, developing means to affect that neurological development, learning and decision making, is one of the projects. Developing gene specific treatments for each person requires knowing each person’s genetic code, which is almost assumed as a baseline to do good, by this largest medical “charitable trust” (with eugenicist background). Discovering the intricacies of human motivation to perform tasks, supposedly to treat depression, wants complete genetic and neural mapping of each human involved in this beneficial research into motivation-to-perform-tasks. One wonders if it might be used some day to control humans from afar with neural implants wired to centers of pleasure, pain, and activity-motivation. (People are already controlled with drugs, fear and violence, but maybe they don’t do their best work with such gross techniques.) Another branch of work is to grow human organs, and organ systems, and humal/electromechanical hybrid organ systems, with an eye to transplants, and also to drug testing on human-systems, without humans, without ethical considerations/constraints. This is pretty long, but I read it for you. Whitney Webb did the research work.
    A “Leap” toward Humanity’s Destruction
    The world’s richest medical research foundation, the Wellcome Trust, has teamed up with a pair of former DARPA directors who built Silicon Valley’s skunkworks to usher in an age of nightmarish surveillance, including for babies as young as three months old.

    Charles Hugh Smith, America’s Social Order is Unraveling
    When there is no relief valve in a collapsing social order, the explosive pressure is eventually released in a Cultural Revolution that unleashes all the bottled-up frustrations on elites. These frustrations have no outlet politically because they’re threatening to the status quo and therefore suppressed at every turn.
    Put another way, if the pendulum is pushed to an extreme of exploitation, suppression and inequality, when it’s released, it will reach an equivalent extreme (minus a bit of friction) at the opposite end. That could be an unexpected but entirely foreseeable Cultural Revolution.
    Those who claim that can’t happen in America are safely outside the pressure cooker, protected by a delusional confidence that since I’m doing great, everyone is doing great. Since real political agency is no longer allowed, the pressure will find release outside the political system. The lobbyists will still be haunting the hallways of governance, but no one will care, for The falcon will no longer hear the falconer.
    (That is when they will jerk the systemic life support of the unruly, isn’t it?)

    ​The British Military’s Dark Vision of the Future​
    If I may summarize this vision of 2050, it assumes the continuation of transnational global capitalism under the Rumsfeld-Cebrowski Doctrine​ https://www.voltairenet.org/article213164.html​ , which is being called completely into question as Belt-and-Road seems to be replacing Global War On Terror as the more accepted model. This vision is that masses of deprived humanity are bottled-up and tightly controlled in cities, with limited resources per capita, and all kinds of intrusive enforcement, such as envisioned above, as well as being torn by social divisions, so they can’t align against the owners.
    (This is not what I am working toward at the vegetarian-homestead in Yoakum, but all I have is this modest little project for a couple of empty-nesters.)

    Day 200 of “Vaccines don’t work”. No one notices. They fight to the death.

But it’s their fault, those mean rural people who have no gun crime: get ‘em! They made Chicago do it with their stupid hats. Remove their rights!

    Day 174 the FBI has no idea who planted the bombs on 100 cameras in D.C., nor have any idea who opened the KYC Coinbase account for the Colonial Pipeline. American Heroes. Stunning and Brave. Now why do we get suspicious? Just because 0% of white-collar crimes are arrested and 100% of mass crimes the FBI interviewed them ahead of time, even according to the NY Times? Huh. Honest mistake I’m sure.

    Entire article on LYING. https://bariweiss.substack.com/p/the-books-are-already-burning

    Baris Weiss (NY Times) discusses the ACLU, aka “book-burning central” “Fahrenheit 451”, and the Left (unfortunately) that all privately write “Keep fighting! We all agree!” while also saying, as yesterday’s scientists “We all know it’s totally irrational, illogical, illegal, immoral, and violent, but I just CAN’T tell the truth and admit 95% of us Leftists ALSO agree with you.” Presidential campaigners, Professors, Doctors, I just CAN’T tell the truth – ever – but must live in fear because: smaller house and car, you understand! No Peloton and scuba vacations!

    So 5% of the nation bullies 95% who DO NOTHING. Good men do nothing. Daddy, tell me about Germany again? Tell me about the USSR where the Great Leader told families to snitch on each other, where the slightest variation in belief was “Domestic terrorism” punished violently, outside the law, using the paid psychological industry, just as Joe NeoLib says yesterday not only 75M Trump voters, not only anyone who believes in Federal Law, but also all SOCIALISTS are domestic terrorists. (And people who AREN’T religious for some reason, although they act the opposite. Was going to go into the quote but, open mouth: all lies, why bother?)

    “The fear these silent supporters express is rational. Even the most ordinary comments can get you branded as persona non grata, some flavor of ‘phobe’ or ‘ist.’ Hardly a week goes by without a story of some professor being reprimanded, a starlet losing a job, or a young reality TV figure abjectly apologizing for something he said that was completely obvious and true. Others have faced more profound threats — parents to the custody of their children, journalists and even editors of scientific journals to their physical safety. People I respect have lost livelihoods and marriages.

    And so, for over a year, I responded to those silent supporters with thanks and reassurance. You don’t have to speak out, just send me your documents — I will expose it for you. No need to stand up for me publicly, just tell me what you know. For a while, this seemed a decent bargain.

    But then, a few months ago, … The standard response didn’t cut it this time. I wrote back as politely as I could: That’s just not good enough. You are a doctor. We aren’t the same with regard to medical scandals. I can continue to seek and publish the truth. I can interview experts and report what they’ve said. But you can appeal to your own authority. You took a Hippocratic oath…”

    But that means nothing. Life, death, their sacred oath, their honor, logic, truth, reality, mean nothing. Only fear. And I’m supposed to support raw, craven cowardice? Reckless disregard for human life that leads to mass incarcerations and deaths everywhere? Cowardice is a vice for reason, you know. Life ends if you succumb to it.

    “what keeps them from speaking up in the face of what they know is wrong is fear. Fear not primarily of unemployment, though that is a pressing concern, but fear of ostracism.”

    Oh noes. Ostracism of violent liars, thieves, and craven cowards. How will I survive without the constant approval of felons and the mentally ill? “The pain is real” she says, as I said yesterday. However tiny a microaggression if it’s the first time you’ve lifted a finger, eaten solid food, taken a step toward being an adult, it IS hard. The pain is just as real as for any general or Assange lifting far more. But you just have to do it. Maturity is nothing people want, but it’s part of the implicate order that is the basis of the universe.

    Evil works against that, the “Implicate Order,” the “Logos,” the “Tao”. That’s why it’s “evil.”

    Book-burning ACLU defending BLM members burning more black blocks than the KKK, claiming to be the goodies? Evil. And it’s not that hard to tell. If you’re on the side of billionaires and MN Corporations, the FBI, government, the side of burning, wrecking, accusing, with rules that say “everything I do is good by definition, by any means necessary, regardless how harmful or wrong”, if it’s the broad and easy way…pretty sure it’s going to be evil. Good will be hard and narrow, hidden, uncertain, unpraised work.

    Why doesn’t Greece offer cash to drink Coke or buy Exxon? A: they do. Fascism is worldwide.

    Why Giuliani’s Suspension Should Worry All Lawyers (Turley)”

    Why not? We’ve already thrown out 1,000 years of law in the Magna Charta, and lawyer-client privilege. McCarthy and the Red Scare got nothing on us. So. Proud.

    “Defense stocks took off like a rocket when Biden was elected, now up 40%.”

    Stunning and Brave. Our President. The one who now says BOTH Trump voters AND Progressives are Domestic Terrorists. …Thus where they plan to drop the 40% bombs shortly. On Jimmy Dore, Aaron Mate, Lee Camp, and now probably Jon Stewart. AOC got on the right side of history and is Pelosi’s adopted daughter now, a 3-way love child with John McCain and Ted Cruz. They fight for YOU by having no $15/hr, NO M4A, and pro-corporation, pro-war as far as the eye can see. But she got that tax break for the student loan forgiveness you’ll never actually get, so you got that goin’ for ya.

    What was I saying? Fascism is worldwide. That’s what happens when a Protected, Private Monopoly on money combines with government to print $1 Trillion a night for the world’s richest and can’t give a second check for $400 for the lowest people who lost 25% of income due to the same said private, protected monopoly paid entirely by government…this time the medical ones.

    A wee detail, mildly diabolical, from the USNews article titled Pfizer, Moderna Vaccines May Stand Guard Against COVID for Years:

    “Those findings suggested that immunity might last years, possibly a lifetime, in people who were infected and later vaccinated. But whether vaccination alone might demonstrate the same power was unclear.”

    So if you survived covid and then get the mRna vakzine, you may never get sick from it again. Am I reading that right? Also, having previously been infected, the body’s immune system has already been somewhat primed to recognize covid, I would think.

    It’s too early for me to tell: am I confused or is this more self-contradicting via vague obfuscation, the new standard in medical journalism?

    Jumped out for me as well. I suspect they just can’t admit out loud that “God’s vaccination” alone will keep you good for many years. If the vaccination alone does not “demonstrate the same power” then either natural immunity is responsible for the many years of protection, or somehow the combo offers this long-lasting protection.

    In other words: BAU, obfuscation central

    Madam: as understood, Covid’s closest relative, SARS, has +10 year immunity. Period. There’s every reason to think CV will as well, but they won’t look. Not just a useless, paid-for add-on, it seems anecdotally that if you had it and get the vaccine you get a much worse reaction, as your body, making spike, attacks ITSELF. Which is obvious, of course. Totally obvious. It’s clear malpractice to give a vaccine you don’t need even if it didn’t, but when it certain WILL… This is some component of the complex range of bad reaction no one is having. Nope, not at all.

    I’m guessing some of the other messiness is the vaccines are not at all the same, even from the same manufacturer. As “experimental” they can change the formula, put anything in them, Arsenic and old lace, Covid itself, or tap water. Although none of those would shock me, think maybe different flavors of lipid-wrap plus flavors of the nano-iron. J&J then looks for the medical record Rorschach pattern and gets 150 million free lab rats, killing some 10% that get the wrong combo, while being able to tell the press “Look! It’s safe, it killed hardly anyone! Only 30x all 70 other vaccines combined!” Yes, but that sub-vaccine you cooked up killed 90% of the takers, and you hid the bodies in the noise like any good serial killer.

    Point: Get a test if you’re going to try it. If you had Covid, 1) you won’t need vaccine 2) very likely have terrible reaction that can’t be calmed down. What say the doctors?

    Speaking of Capitalism: 49 states, Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma are going to pay California for all the COVID back-rents. …To Landlords, of course. So FROM the poorest, TO the richest! Capitalism! The American Way!

    Oh and both halves totally illegal, as they are prohibited from interfering in private contracts. ALSO illegal as the CDC is an advisory board with no legislative or executive power. ALSO not “from each according to his ability” but the OPPOSITE.

    CJ Hopkins- ‘The War on Reality:

    “So, the War on Reality is going splendidly. Societies all across the world have been split into opposing, irreconcilable realities. Neighbors, friends, and even family members are bitterly divided into two hostile camps, each regarding the other as paranoid psychotics, delusional fanatics, dangerous idiots, and, in any event, as mortal enemies.

    In the UK, Germany, and many other countries, and in numerous states throughout the US, a “state of emergency” remains in effect. An apocalyptic virus is on the loose. Mutant variants are spreading like wildfire. Most of society is still shut down or subject to emergency health restrictions. People are still walking around in public with plastic face shields and medical-looking masks. The police are showing up at people’s homes to arrest them for “illegally gathering outdoors.” Any deviation from official reality is being censored by the Internet corporations. Constitutional rights are still suspended. Entire populations are being coerced into being injected with experimental “vaccines.” Pseudo-medical segregation systems are being brought online.

    Understatement of the century. The question becomes,, “Are there any other judges willing to buck the tide and call it what it is?”

    ““We live in a fraud of unprecedented dimensions,” wrote Dias.

    “The data are from the Sistema de Informação dos Certificados de Óbito (Death Certificate Information System – SICO), the only such system in Portugal. The reference to 152 death certificated issued ‘under Justice Ministry supervision’ is spurious, as all death certificates are issued under Justice Ministry auspices, being the only institution that issues them.

    “In response to a popular suit, a court order was required for the Ministry to respond, desperate not to denounce the fraud.

    “All those responsible for handling data from ‘cases’ and ‘deaths’ can, thereafter, only be tried for the crime if there is any dignity remaining in the rule of law,” he continued.

    “If these figures are of the same order of magnitude for other countries as well, and there is no reason to assume otherwise, then the plague is a deception of unprecedented proportions and crimes committed against humanity on a huge scale have been committed here.”

    Here in small-town coastal Califonia, Hopkins’s description fits the facts well: people driving around with masks on and windows rolled up in their cars; big-time pressure to get the “vaccines”; lockdowns continue, with the small-business side of the one main shopping center *all still closed* and apparently OOB, given the paper in all the front windows, while the corporatist side has been wide-open all through the “pandemic”, and doing bang-up business..

    “..a beloved pastime where American athletes who were given every opportunity to succeed get to show how much they hate America..”

    Pro sports in America is finished as a business model.

    Fully one half of the audience (probably more), who still love and respect their country, are fed up with PC wokeism infecting the sports arena.

    The ungodly amounts of money payed to sports ‘stars’ , in any major sport, depend on high ticket sales, ad revenue and endorsements.

    The whole of pro sports is now littered with people pissing on the public’s shoes and trying to call it rain.

    If the whole of pro sports loses half it’s audience in a short space of time (it’s happening as we speak) the business model will collapse in a New York Minute.

    “Just Obey It” and “Lighting the Flag on Fire” are satirical art imitating actual life and are the Kiss of Death to Pro Sports.

    Thinking: Okay, yes, if you had Covid, your body attacks itself, but if you DIDN’T have Covid, it attacks itself too. Clarify: the body with antibodies is primed to attack, while the fresh body has to start creating the very first Spike, THEN attacks that first Spike with a first antibody, which happens slower. This is key, cytokine-storm style. That may or may not be an advantage, my impression is being a fresh patient is better. …Symptomwise.

    Obviously, it would seem native immunity is superior, not just for SARS, nor for anti-body tests, which they refuse to make/try/study or /do, but because it recognizes all (probable) variants. So natural immunity is Delta-immune too. They are going to try to create the opposite impression, lying to protect the vax and blame the unvaxxed for being the host reservoir for a disease the vaccine should have made them immune to if it worked at all to begin with. Also can’t be true because there was essentially no time to create a better variant. Delta claims to exist, what 2 months after vax? And it’s also barely different?

    Next: According to themselves, not ONLY does it have no Delta immunity, but no base immunity either. 50% of vaccinated get Covid anyway. (U.K. reports)

    According to themselves, that immunity has near-zero duration. They want a booster at 2 weeks and 6 months, possibly forever. Since the mRNA under their science will only about wear off by then (in theory only, cells disposed and no longer making spikes), they’re saying it does not protect you.

    Essentially: IT’S NOT A VACCINE.

    I conceded for no special reason that even though most present vaccines are not whole, weakened viruses (the Sinovax is exception) but are experimental RNA therapies, by function they are vaccines. That is, they are meant to create a long-term immunity from a certain disease.

    However, that’s wrong, isn’t it? It has NO “long-term” protection: it has short-term protection only. If you must re-take every 6 months, or possibly 100 more doses before death starting age 20. Worse, it has no immunity at all since U.K., Israel, and Seychelles show higher cases immunized than in vaccine-free zones. While you’re supposed to “get it” – just with no symptoms – almost certainly they are finding worse symptoms than the unvaccinated. First, I think the hospital numbers show a 50% split as well. Second, why would vaccinated people be getting tests if they had no symptoms? The numbers would be strongly skewed toward the unvaccinated (who would suspect they might have it), and they’re not. If anything, it’s the other way.

    A little messy. Thoughts?

    Adding: except for the measures taken to “combate the pandemic” mentioned above, I have seen not one thing since the project was rolled out fifteen months ago that would be
    evidence of a pandemic. Not *one person* in distress, except by the fear engendered by lockdowns, masking, 24/7 media fear-porn, loss of work and income, and so on.

    They know what they’re doing.

    I believe Hopkins is an American, but he lives exclusively in Germany. So his description is of daily life there.

    Well, I’m pretty sure there is something going around because my best friend from high school might have died last year had it not been for Dr. Kory convincing the medical profession to treat Covid-related cytokine-storms with steroids. I just wish the old friend hadn’t “taken the jab” because the white-coats wouldn’t tell him that he’s pretty much immune now that he’s survived a severe case. 🙁
