Infections in Vaccinated Overtake Those in Unvaccinated For the First Time (LDS)

Health Secretary Sajid Javid has tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, despite being vaccinated – and he is far from alone. The latest ZOE data shows that, as of July 12th, infections in the vaccinated (with at least one dose) in the U.K. now outnumber those in the unvaccinated for the first time, as the former continue to surge while the latter plummet (see above). (Note that 68% of the population has had at least one vaccine dose, so there are still at this stage disproportionately more new infections in the unvaccinated, though on current trends that may soon change.) At what point will the Government accept that these vaccines have limited efficacy in preventing infection and transmission, and thus the whole rationale of being vaccinated to protect others – vaccine passports, compulsory vaccination, and so on – is suspect?

The above graph was in yesterday’s report, so I downloaded today’s report (you can get it by signing up to the app and reporting your symptoms) to get the new update. I was dismayed to find the graph was gone. At the bottom, a note explains: Removed incidence graph by vaccination status from the report as there are very few unvaccinated users in the infection survey, the Confidence Intervals are very wide and the trend for unvaccinated people is no longer representative. Which I would say is very convenient, just as infections in the vaccinated became the majority. Perhaps ZOE should try to recruit some more unvaccinated people for its survey, so it can continue to report on this as well as have a control group for its vaccine data? That would seem the scientific thing to do, rather than just stop reporting it because it is suddenly “no longer representative”.

It’s doubly odd because Tim Spector, lead scientist on the ZOE app, made the decline among the unvaccinated a feature of his video this week. So the realisation that the trend is “no longer representative” appears to have been rather sudden, even invalidating the contents of a ZOE ‘data release‘ two days earlier.

British Ministers Decide Against Mass Vaccination For Teens (R.)

Britain has opted against mass COVID-19 vaccinations for all children and teenagers, with ministers instead preparing to offer doses to vulnerable 12 to 15-year-olds and those about to turn 18, the Telegraph newspaper reported late on Saturday. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) is believed to have advised ministers against the rollout of vaccines to all children until further evidence on the risks is available, the report added. Under guidance the newspaper said are due to be issued on Monday, vaccine doses will be offered to children between 12 and 15 who are deemed vulnerable to COVID-19 or who live with adults who are immunosuppressed or otherwise vulnerable to the virus.


They will also now be offered to all 17-year-olds within three months of their 18th birthday, according to The Telegraph, which reported that the committee would keep the possibility of vaccinating all children “under review.” In response to the report, Britain’s Health Department said that “no decisions have been made by ministers on whether people aged 12 to 17 should be routinely offered COVID-19 vaccines.” Britain on Saturday reported 54,674 new COVID-19 cases, a rise on the 51,870 new cases reported on the previous day to post a fresh highest daily total in six months.

The CDC Owes Parents Better Messaging on the Vaccine for Kids (Wired)

On June 23, an advisory committee to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention met to discuss, among other topics, vaccine-related cases of myocarditis, which have hospitalized hundreds of adolescents. Evidence of a correlation between the condition, an inflammation of the heart muscle, and the vaccines had been mounting for months. Numerous countries had altered or withheld recommendations for pediatric vaccination, with some citing an ambiguous risk-benefit. One day after the committee meeting, however, CDC director Rochelle Walensky went on TV and calmly reassured viewers that there was nothing to worry about: Vaccinating kids age 12 and up, at the full dosage and same schedule as adults, should continue with alacrity.

Walensky cited a string of statistics that showed “the benefits of vaccination far outweigh any harm.” But some epidemiologists, public health experts, pediatricians, cardiologists, and other scientists dispute the CDC’s numbers, characterizations, and conclusion. The agency, they variously contend, is both exaggerating the risks of Covid-19 to young people and underplaying the potential risks of the vaccine to them. Much data that would support the CDC’s declarations are either unknown, unrevealed, or far messier than the agency and its director portray. And the data that are known and clear have been projected through a specific lens with blunt certainty. The absolute risk of the vaccine still appears to be extremely small for young people but, on balance, when the data are seen through a different frame, the relative individual risk from vaccination, particularly for healthy young males, may be higher than it is to not be vaccinated at this time.

There is no debate among most experts critical of the CDC about the value of vaccines on a societal level to help usher in the end of the pandemic, which is the ultimate goal of the vaccine. Rather, the matter at hand is the CDC’s messaging, which fails to help parents and children make properly informed decisions about the vaccines on an individual level. As Stefan Baral, an epidemiologist and physician at Johns Hopkins, recently tweeted, “One can be both very pro-Covid-19 vaccination and also be worried about the individual risk:benefit profile of Covid-19 vaccines in <16 yo.”

First, the link between the mRNA vaccines and myocarditis, particularly in young males, is sufficiently clear that the FDA revised its vaccine fact sheets to include a warning about it. As of June 11 (the latest date most data were collected for the meeting), 128 cases within seven days of the second dose had been reported in boys aged 12 to 17, when the CDC’s expected number for that same population was zero to four cases. VAERS, the reporting database for vaccine-related adverse events that these statistics are drawn from, has limitations. Some portion of the events reported may be unrelated to the vaccines. But the differential between expected and observed cases within certain cohorts is the statistical equivalent of a blaring siren. (A detailed analysis in Israel estimated the incidence of myocarditis following vaccination in young males to be around one in 5,000, equating to 200 cases per million.)

Fauci: US Might ‘Still Have Polio’ If Media Back Then Opposed Vaccine (Y!)

Top US scientist Anthony Fauci on Saturday blasted commentators who sound an anti-vaccination theme, saying America might still be battling smallpox and polio if today’s kind of misinformation existed back then. The comments from the country’s leading infectious disease expert reflected mounting frustration over the sharp slowdown in the Covid-19 vaccination rate in the United States, even as the disease has been surging in states with low rates. It also came days after President Joe Biden expressed his own visible frustration, saying social media that carry widely heard misinformation about vaccines are “killing people.”


Fauci was responding to a CNN interviewer who asked if he thought “we could have defeated the measles or eradicated polio if you had Fox News, night after night, warning people about these vaccine issues that are just bunk.” Fauci said: “We probably would still have smallpox and we probably would still have polio … if we had the kind of false information that’s being spread.” Initial vaccine skepticism in many areas has increasingly evolved into outright hostility, a message magnified by baseless conspiracy theories regularly aired on Fox and other conservative networks. “Maybe it doesn’t work and they’re simply not telling you that,” Tucker Carlson, one of Fox’s most popular commentators, said recently.

“Biden is accusing these companies of actually killing people for refusing even more extensive censorship of speech. The statement equates free speech with death itself.”

Biden Denounces Big Tech as “Killing People” By Not Censoring Speech (Turley)

President Joe Biden slammed Big Tech companies this week for “killing people” by failing to engage in even greater censorship of free speech on issues related to the pandemic. It was a surprising condemnation of companies who have been loyal allies of Biden, including killing stories embarrassing to his family like the Hunter Biden laptop scandal before the election. It also has censored stories questioning his victory in 2020. Nevertheless, Biden denounced the range of uncensored free speech as the cause of death for many — the ultimate anti-free speech trope for those seeking to convince people to embrace their own censorship. Biden was asked by a reporter what his message was to “platforms like Facebook” on the subject of “COVID misinformation.”

He responded “They’re killing people. The only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated, and they’re killing people.” This comes as these companies have been criticized for censoring debates over the origin or treatment of Covid-19. For a year, Big Tech has been censoring those who wanted to discuss the origins of pandemic. It was not until Biden admitted that the virus may have originated in the Wuhan lab that social media suddenly changed its position. Facebook only recently announced that people on its platform will be able to discuss the origins of Covid-19 after censoring any such discussion. The White House recently admitted that it was flagging “misinformation” for censorship by companies like Facebook. Moreover, White House press secretary Jen Psaki has called for people to be banned from all social media if any one company bans them.

Biden is accusing these companies of actually killing people for refusing even more extensive censorship of speech. The statement equates free speech with death itself. We have seen this type of reckless rhetoric in other areas where disagreement with a policy or proposal is treated as de facto racism or hate speech. That was the case recently with the NAACP official who denounced those of opposing what is commonly referred to as critical race theory lessons as haters of a long litany of groups from the disabled to children to “help people.” This was followed by the chilling words “Let them die.”

Rather than seek to convince the skeptical, Biden wants to silence them and use these companies to control what is read and discussed about the pandemic. What is chilling is the degree to which reporters and academics have supported the massive censorship system in the United States. However, that system is clearly not (to use Sen. Blumenthal’s words) “robust enough” for Biden who wants these companies to carry out a more complete censorship of opposing views.

Sheriff In California Won’t Enforce Mask Mandate: ‘Not Backed By Science’ (RT)

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has made waves and caused outrage by refusing to enforce the city’s reinstated mask policy, saying the decision is “not backed by science.” Los Angeles County health officials shocked many this week when they announced that their mask mandate would be returning. Similar to the restriction in place before the county began reopening last month, residents have been told to wear masks in indoor settings and large gatherings, regardless of one’s vaccination status. County officials reinstated the mask mandate due to new Covid-19 daily cases reaching over 1,000 every day for a week. Health officials also cited the Delta variant as a reason why people “need to reduce our risk of infection and our risk for potentially infecting others.”


Villanueva, who is up for reelection next year, was quick to respond to the mandate, and made it clear that he and his officers would have no part in helping the county enforce the new rule. “Forcing the vaccinated and those who already contracted COVID-19 to wear masks indoors is not backed by science and contradicts the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines,” he said in a statement. The “underfunded” department, the sheriff added, will not be using their “limited resources” to make sure people are in compliance, though he made sure to say they “have the authority” to enforce if they wanted to. The sheriff is asking for “voluntary compliance” from residents instead.

Game Postponed After 6 New York Yankees Test Positive For Covid-19 (CNN)

Six players on the New York Yankees have tested positive for Covid-19, general manager Brian Cashman told reporters Thursday, in the second instance this year of breakthrough cases occurring among some members of the baseball team. “We have three positives, and we have three pending that we’ve had rapid tests on,” Cashman said, saying the three positive rapid tests are being confirmed with additional lab work. The players with confirmed positive tests are pitchers Jonathan Loaisiga, Nestor Cortes Jr. and Wandy Peralta, according to the team. The three unnamed players have results pending.


The three named players were all vaccinated, according to the team. Two of the players received Johnson & Johnson vaccines and the other was from either Pfizer or Moderna, Cashman says. The pitchers are “doing well thus far,” Cashman said, while he declined to comment on the unnamed players until final confirmation of their positive tests are received by the team. Earlier this season, eight positive tests were recorded among coaching and travel staff, all of whom had previously taken the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Of the team members who tested positive, only one showed mild symptoms and his condition improved, the Yankees said.

Kamala’s Husband Spreads Misinformation (ZH)

Emhoff spoke to the 44-year-old man as if he was a toddler at the doctor’s office. “Don’t be nervous. It won’t hurt. I’ve had it. I can take it. So don’t be scared,” Emhoff told Posadas. The immigrant then stood off to the side while Emhoff shook hands with doctors and medical staff from Ochsner Health. After posing for photos, Emhoff turns back to Posadas. “Gustava, thank you so much. Muy importante,” Emhoff said in English-accented Spanish. “What do you have to say to people? And you’re going to tell a bunch of people…?” “I tell everybody,” Posadas said in Spanish-accented English. “I don’t want this before. But now I think this is real…” “This is real,” Emhoff says, completing his sentence. “And it’s the only thing that is going to prevent you, your family and others from dying or getting really sick.”

Say what? A vaccine is the only thing that is going to prevent people from dying from COVID? Is this what the Biden administration’s door knockers are telling people in private? The recovery rate for COVID is 98 to 99 percent. Almost all the deaths are due to age or underlying conditions. Johns Hopkins currently has the rate at 98.2 percent in America. Even Dr. Anthony Fauci testified before Congress that the survival rate is actually 99 percent because asymptomatic cases are under counted. Emhoff seemingly doesn’t care to give the facts to Posadas and put the success of the media stunt at risk. “I’m so grateful you’re doing this in front of the cameras so you can tell everyone it’s okay,” said Emhoff. Posadas nods his head. “Everything – my people – I thinks, we want the shot. This is real. I not believe you before, but I feel it now.”

No reporter asks questions. But the obvious one is: How long ago did Posadas not “believe” Emhoff? Who convinced him to take the vaccine? What was told to him in English or Spanish? Emhoff wastes no time with Posadas’s hesitancy. “Well let’s do it!” said the Second Gentleman while the medical staff and clergy applaud. Posadas is put in a white, folding chair. He keeps on the mirrored sunglasses. A woman in scrubs tells him to pull the mask over his nose. He rolls up his sleeve as the woman comes in with the needle. Posadas looks in the opposite direction. “Look at me! Look at me!” Emhoff tells him, while the shot is administered. The crowd applauds. Emhoff holds out his fist, and Posadas bumps him after he stands.

“Thank you for doing this,” Emhoff says, while Posadas rubs his arm and says something in Spanish. “Thank you for telling everyone to do this.” Emhoff walks away to do media interviews while a woman is heard off camera saying, “Gustava, did you get your card with your vaccination on it?” The Second Gentleman tells reporters that, “On the Covid piece, on the vaccinations, I’m not going to stop. This administration is not going to stop until we continue to get the word out here.” Emhoff continues but seems to not remember Posadas’s name. “You heard what he said – it’s real. He didn’t believe it. He believes it now….” Harris’s husband does a hard sell of the vaccines and adds, “We’re going to go door to door, bring the vaccines out to the people until we get this done.”

US-Backed Tech Restores Internet To More Than 1 Million Cubans (ZH)

With summer uprisings in Cuba, the communist government has discovered ways to cut the internet off to millions of residents, so organized protesting on social media is near impossible. Let’s take a step back to early last week when reports of the Cuban regime used China-made technology systems to block internet and cell phone service to prevent pictures and videos of what was happening on the ground published online near impossible for the outside world to see. The regime also blocked popular social media channels that would make organized protesting impossible. Remember, a decade ago, during Arab Spring, Facebook and Twitter were critical for organizers to orchestrate uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Bahrain.

The Biden administration is finding ways to provide anti-censorship tools to Cubans to access social media during the blackouts. According to Bloomberg, the U.S. government supports a censorship circumvention tool designed to unblock content in Cuba and is powered by a company called Psiphon Inc. As of Thursday, Psiphon tweeted, “1.389 Million daily unique users accessed the open web from Cuba through the Psiphon network. Internet is ON; circumvention tools ARE working.” Psiphon uses proxy servers that disguise internet traffic so Cuban authorities cannot tell if people are accessing social media platforms. The Toronto-based nonprofit has received money from the U.S. government. Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn tweeted Saturday that the proxy service is working well:

The Biden administration has been strategizing on other ways to provide the people of Cuba with internet access. “They have cut off access to the internet. We are considering whether we have the technological ability to reinstate that access,” President Biden said on Friday. Biden commented after Florida Governor Ron Desantis told the president the federal government should restore internet on the island located in the northern Caribbean Sea. Desantis said there’s a technology that would allow the U.S. to broadcast internet access into Cuba remotely. “Technology exists to provide Internet access into Cuba remotely, using the innovation of American enterprise and the diverse industries here,” the governor wrote. He said this reminds him of the Cold War when the U.S. funded radio stations to broadcast information into the Soviet Union.

A bunch of tiny islands and a dispute that no-one ever bothered to resolve. But now if the US wants to stand with Japan, it must stand against Taiwan. And the Chinese are thinking: let’s have that fun.

Does Japan Control The Trigger For US Nuclear War On China? (Ritter)

Statements made by Japan’s Deputy Prime Minister about his country’s need to defend Taiwan have raised the specter of a “Japan exception” to China’s no-first-use policy on nuclear weapons. In April this year, Japanese Prime Minister Suga Yoshihide became the first foreign leader to visit the White House after the swearing in of Joe Biden as America’s 46th President. After private discussions, Yoshihide and Biden issued a joint statement entitled “US-Japan Global Partnership for a New Era.” What made it stand out from similar joint releases over the past decades of US-Japanese relations was the fact that, for the first time in over 50 years, the Japanese and American leaders made mention of Taiwan, declaring “we underscore the importance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and encourage the peaceful resolution of cross-Strait issues.”

While the statement was, on the surface, rather innocuous, the Chinese Embassy in the US immediately reacted, declaring Beijing’s resolute opposition to what it deemed to be interference in China’s internal affairs, and noting that the talks had gone beyond the scope of normal bilateral relations, harming third-party interests and threatening peace and stability in the region. While most observers might think the Chinese objection was centered on its long-standing claim on Taiwan proper, the trigger point was, more likely, the specific reference made in the statement to a tiny cluster of uninhabited rocky islands situated some 170 kilometers (105 miles) north of Taiwan and around 400 kilometers (248 miles) due west of Okinawa.

These islands, known in Japan as the Senkaku Islands and in China as the Diaoyu Dao Islands, are located not only in rich fishing waters, but also on top of economically viable underwater oil and gas deposits. While their ownership is a matter of ongoing legal dispute, with China viewing them as constituting part of Taiwan, and Japan as part of the Okinawa prefecture, at the present time the islands are administered by Japan. The US-Japanese joint statement reiterated Washington’s “unwavering support for Japan’s defense under the US-Japan Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security, using its full range of capabilities, including nuclear.” It then went on to reaffirm “the fact that Article V of the Treaty applies to the Senkaku Islands,” adding that both the US and Japan “oppose any unilateral action that seeks to undermine Japan’s administration of the Senkaku Islands.”

Left to its own devices, the Sino-Japanese dispute over the Senkaku/Diaoyu Dao Islands should have remained low-key. But on July 6, Japan’s Deputy Prime Minister, Taro Aso, reportedly stated that “If a major problem took place in Taiwan, it would not be too much to say that it could relate to a survival-threatening situation [for Japan],” citing language which specifically triggers Japan’s Constitutionally-mandated right of collective self-defense, where it would be permitted to deploy its armed forces in support of an ally who had been attacked. A “survival-threatening situation” occurs when an armed attack against a foreign country allied with Japan poses a clear risk of threatening Japan’s survival.

“We need to think hard that Okinawa could be the next,” Aso was quoted as saying, indicating the specific nature of the “survival-threatening situation” he spoke of. While China has never expressed any territorial interest in either Okinawa or the other populated islands contained in the Okinawa prefecture, the fact that Japan views the Senkaku Islands as part of Okinawa, and China views the Diaoyu Dao Islands as part of Taiwan, means that any Chinese move on Taiwan would, as a matter of course, include asserting its claim over the disputed islands. This, in turn, would trigger Article V of the US-Japan Treaty of Mutual Cooperation, which is backed by the nuclear arsenal of the United States.

    Britain could see 200,000 cases a DAY and 20k hospital admissions in WEEKS, warn experts

    As England gears up for a full unlocking tomorrow, medical experts warn that infections and hospitalisation figures could reach all-time highs in the coming weeks.

    And Chris Whitty also warned earlier this weekend that England could be plunged back into lockdown within five weeks, with “scary” hospitalisations numbers doubling every three weeks.

    Professor Neil Ferguson told BBC’s Andrew Marr this morning: “100,000 cases a day is almost inevitable.

    “I mean, we could get to 2,000 hospitalisations a day, 200,000 cases a day, but it’s much less certain.

    “There, you are talking about major disruption of services and cancellation of elective surgery and the backlog in the NHS, getting longer and longer.”

    Yesterday, Covid cases rose by 70 per cent in a week as 54,674 new infections were reported.

    Deaths have increased by 41, bringing the total to 128,683.

    Doesn’t it occur to any of these people that it may be the vaccines which are causing this problem?

    Can I make Fauci cry on nation T.V. about his total public failure? At last?

    Tony: Pretty sure people were uneducated and suspicious of outsiders in the ‘40s. Dumb-ss. So golly gee willikers, Tony, why don’t people trust, big multi-national corporations, actual health experts, and YOU, personally? I mean, it’s nearly inexplicable when YOU have killed 500,000 people with opioids alone, took the profit, looked the other way, and close Pharma lawsuits on killing 10k at a pop almost every year. …Where you take the money, look the other way, carry on when nobody goes to jail. And while a broken wrist will make your whole family homeless, WE paid 10% x 10% x 10% x 10% x 10% x 10% x 10% compounded since Obamacare was proposed, and STILL bailed out Pharma, Anthem, Humana, and United while living in a cardboard box. …But, I know, WE’RE the silly ones, thinking you’re not trustworthy and out to get us. Really, medicine being the top cause of death by orders of magnitude has nothing to do with our weird, unscientific, Kinko-fearing ways.

    “ Does Japan Control The Trigger For US Nuclear War On China? (Ritter)”

    No. The U.S. and Anglos would betray any ally to a horrible death for the smallest reasons, but the calculation shifts substantially if Japan stays all in for Taiwan. …Was that a good idea to show the nuking of Japan now, you Han racists? I can’t IMAGINE what Japan has hidden in the box, military underground.

    “Doesn’t it occur?”

    Nope. Highest vaccine = highest cases, exactly as proven by 10 years of mRNA study. Our answer: “No it isn’t: you’re a dumb-face.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idiocracy

    “Unaware of what year it was, Joe wandered the streets desperate for help. But the English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy. “

    ” “I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time — when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness…

    The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance” -Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

    Since quote work better than me speaking, Our Leaders:

    “”I’m getting worried about you. This edge you’ve taken. Displays like that aren’t helpful to us.”
    “[shrugs] I believe in protecting what we’ve created. I won’t apologize for that. “

    “Maybe it’s time to give up on the tests: We’re living the solution already. This is perfection. Why can’t you just embrace it?
    “You see what’s happening to people. You know how desperate this has become.”
    “It can be controlled. Contained.”
    “I think your forgetting that this was all meant to be temporary.”
    “You’ve always said that but why should it be?”
    “Because it’s wrong.” –Aeon Flux

    I think about that often sometimes: “It can still be contained, controlled.” Vs. “It’s all falling apart.”

    “A universally oppressive regime where I’m in charge is perfection. Why can’t you just accept it?”
    “Because it’s wrong.”

    “It was all meant to be temporary.” The Civil War powers, the Federal Reserve, the WWII war powers, the military secrecy act, leaving the gold standard, the ’01 interest rates, the Patriot Act, the GWoT, the ’08 Bailout, the end to free speech, all meant to be temporary. …Until having all that power was perfection. To the deciders. Then it’s “What’s the hurry? It’s only been 150 years…we need a little more time in lock down…”

    @mister: “That’s probably only the case in the big cities of the northeast …”

    Now, now … I’m sure that’s the case in southern west coast big cities as well. Definitely Portland, Seattle. Maybe even some TX big cities, and Atlanta, and Chicago …

    Certainly we NE people can’t be the only religious fanatics. 🙂

    I wonder how some members of the gay community feel about this Fauci fanaticism. There were protests back during the AIDS epidemic and signs reading “Fauci Lied. People Died”. If I’m recalling that correctly?

    what we are doing here is targeting the brain
    we’ve written comprehensively about big data as a force multiplier in neuroscience and neuroweaponology

    Some people have fascinating jobs learning how to force, control, attack and murder people using brain science and military. I love watching this cos it reminds me that heaps of dudes around the world just rock up for work and get busy on this stuff, have coffe breaks and talk sports and then go back to crazy-arse mad-scientist shit.

    Here in Portland, very few masks, mostly the obese, elderly, and helplessly devout MSNBC “liberals”. Billboards telling us the vakz is safe.effective.free. Nobody talks about it, hardly. It’s so old, so boring, so 2020. Downtown restaurants are petitiioning city hall to let them continue using the sidewalks for outdoor dining after covid set the precedent.

    And everywhere, everywhere, the Hoovervilles grow… again, I say, the covid juggernaut is over. Just momentum at this point, a ship slowing to a stall despite desperate PR tugboats trying to get it off the sandbank and moving again.

    About the time they say the “epidemic” is “over”, the real epidemic will commence.

    Three decades before coronavirus, Anthony Fauci took heat from AIDS protesters

    Reading this, I seem to see Fauci doing major historical revision of the facts. Per norm.

    We had a discussion of terms of endearment like ‘elite’ for the psychopath class. Their nothing ‘elite’ about a class of criminals like them.

    So I thought the term Big Pharma needed an extreme makeover.

    So I was listening to a Gerald Celente rant, always entertaining when you want to see a profanity laced foaming at the mouth rant, and he calls Big Pharma simply “The Drug Lords”.

    I think “The Drug Lords” has a nice ring to it, accurate, descriptive, embraces their very soul essence.

    Just like “The War Lords” does for the Military Industrial Complex. It’s shorter and to the point.

    Wall St Bank could just be “The Money Changers”, already got a long history of use.

    And the political class, well aren’t they special, the best descriptive term for them is “The Necrophiliacs”

    Sweet, in a legal document or contract there is a section called “The Construction of Language” which defines all the terms used in the agreement.

    The Narrative we are stuck in currently is a meta-media Construction of Language.

    Control the meaning of words and terms: control the Narrative

    “The medium is the message because it is the medium that shapes and controls the scale and form of human association and action….”

    Maybe old Marshall McLuhan was on to something.

    [This comment wouldn’t post earlier today, so I’m trying a third time, with no links.]

    A misleading article about breakthrough cases, from July 14:


    2% of COVID Deaths in Illinois This Year Have Been Fully Vaccinated Residents

    Illinois’ top doctor said Tuesday that breakthrough cases of COVID-19 in fully vaccinated residents are a “unicorn” as she again urged those who have not yet gotten vaccinated to do so.

    (NBC Chicago dot com)

    They are including the big increase in cases during January, when only 2% of the state’s population was fully vaccinated by the end of the month. What about the more relevant (but unpublicized) numbers for the most recent month?

    Digging through data at the Illinois Department of Public Health, with help from the Wayback Machine, it becomes clear that we are not in “unicorn” territory. The 2% jumps up to around 12% for the most recent month. It’s on its way to the levels already reached in Israel and the UK.

    Data and calculations:
    Covid deaths for the fully vaccinated in Illinois
    as of July 14, 151 deaths
    as of June 9, 106 deaths
    from June 9 – July 15, 151 – 106 = 45 deaths
    Total Covid deaths in Illinois from June 9 – July 15 = 390
    Percentage of Covid deaths, fully vaccinated = 45/390 = 12%

    UNLESS YOU HEAR IT FROM US IT IS NOT THE TRUTH

    quote from Jacinda in Vid. posted by Ilargi.

    Wow! Quel courage!

    Ardern is a Blairite (she worked for him in her ‘overseas’ experience.. see link), a third-wayer, i.e. a ‘socialist’ / ‘democrat’ co-opted, and bedazzled to be so, to support Mega-Corp Power, be it military, medical, media, etc., continuing wars under RTP and ‘humanitarian’ principles, plus the covert oppression, or in other terms, strict and cruel management of the working class, deplorables and the like. (Some exceptions can be made for ‘at home’.. because otherwise ppl might rebel..)

    I hadn’t seen a pic of her for a long time. Her face shows close to alarming anorexia, she should just quit, she is out of her depth.

    ————-

    quote:

    In 2005 Ardern embarked on an “overseas experience,” an extended—usually working—trip to Britain, which is a traditional rite of passage for the children of New Zealand’s middle and upper class. Instead of labouring in a London pub or warehouse and then touring the Continent, however, Ardern worked for two and a half years in the cabinet office of British Prime Minister Tony Blair, serving as an associate director for Better Regulation Executive with the primary responsibility of improving the ways in which local authorities interact with small businesses. In 2007 she was elected president of the International Union of Socialist Youth (IUSY), a position that took her to destinations such as Algeria, China, India, Israel, Jordan, and Lebanon.

    But I’m getting a bit long in the tooth now, and I can tell ya for sure that my stamina ain’t what it used to be. Wondering how these even-older-than-me oldies are pulling it off. A very small percentage of 80 year olds still going strong? Sure. But there are A LOT of them still pulling the strings. It isn’t natural at all. It most surely isn’t.

    It won’t necessarily be pleasant. That level of popular opposition tends to go Jacobin. PArtly why I see that immunity collapsing is because everything else will too. If Fauci escapes assassination, it will probably be because he runs off to wherever Jeffrey Epstgein is hiding. (Oh, they may have killed him in that NYC jail, but I think it’s just as likely that they faked it and he’s in hiding and hates it and won’t escape mortal consequences.

    Also, I second what you said about Doc R.

    ” Wondering how these even-older-than-me oldies are pulling it off. ”

    They don’t do anything they don’t want to; most things are done for them; and they keep themselves above the grave by spending enough health care money on themselves to cover health care costs for a town of 20,000.

    They pull strings. Strings fray, get cut, sometimes tangle about you like a puppy on a leash. They are not the future. We are.

    So I googled ‘mating dance’ to find a funny response to your kind feather offer. First thing youtube shows me is:

    Peacock Spider Mating Dance

    Sometimes google likes to make sure I know that it’s watching. On the rare occasions when our old bones allow the ex-Mrs. Sherburn and I to enjoy erotic activities, I like to leave the cellphone next to us so the boys at NSA can get their kicks listening in.

    Fact check: Arizona audit chief baselessly raises suspicion about 74,000 ballots

    SHared for comparison to the Old Days, when jopurnalism was at least semi-responsible. Back then, you would read headlines like Arizona audit chief raises suspicion about 74,000 ballots

    While the official explanation for why it’s deemed baseless seems to hold water, the headline is crap.

    Me, I suspect this is a red herring. Note this line from thre article: “Logan made clear that this wasn’t necessarily a case of fraud, saying it could be a “clerical issue.” So he didn’t make a baseless assertion. He was clam and reasonable about it. ANd that cannot be tolerated. He must be tarred dark and loony.

    Ugly and Contradictory

    a: “The book’s title, and thus its focus, is drawn from an internal posting written by one of Facebook’s longest-tenured executives, Andrew Bosworth, which he called “The Ugly.” In the 2016 memo, which he says he wrote to provoke debate, he explained that Facebook cares more about adding users than anything else. “The ugly truth is that we believe in connecting people so deeply that anything that allows us to connect more people more often is de facto good,” he wrote. “That can be bad if they make it negative. Maybe it costs a life by exposing someone to bullies. Maybe someone dies in a terrorist attack coordinated on our tools. And still we connect people.”

    b: “Of course, Facebook yields enormous power as their banning of President Trump from their platform attests to.”

    And still we connect people… except the former POTUS, who is not a person, apparently.

    Considering its safety record, I would treat it like masking — can’t hurt, might help, so why not? Odd, you know, that the precautionary principle is being stringently applied to a well-known, quite safe, and dirt cheap (as low as 11 cents per dose when purchased in bulk, as by governments) treatment. That’s cheaper than a cheap mask. Is it effective? I’d sure like to try it, but physicians in Canada are afraid to prescribe it and apparently it’s on a 4-month backorder anyway.

    Meanwhile we are all supposed to take this vaccine that is not only a new product but a new technology, has not been tested over any long term, and doesn’t seem to be working all that well. I do ‘trust the science’, but I am seeing precious little of it from our so-called authorities.

    Yes, let us not do that. Instead, let us who cannot get the human purposed version of the drug, for whatever reason, just crawl off somewhere and joyfully invoke Neo-liberal rule #2.
    Now, if you had admonished us to protect the site from ‘official’ obloquy by not engaging in “armchair” analysis, fair enough. We do get that this subject has been weaponized and is now not safe for full frontal exposure.
