Lab Alert: Changes to CDC RT-PCR for SARS-CoV-2 Testing

Level: Laboratory Alert

After December 31, 2021, CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the assay first introduced in February 2020 for detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. CDC is providing this advance notice for clinical laboratories to have adequate time to select and implement one of the many FDA-authorized alternatives.

In preparation for this change, CDC recommends clinical laboratories and testing sites that have been using the CDC 2019-nCoV RT-PCR assay select and begin their transition to another FDA-authorized COVID-19 test. CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. Such assays can facilitate continued testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save both time and resources as we head into influenza season. Laboratories and testing sites should validate and verify their selected assay within their facility before beginning clinical testing.

“These vulnerable children will be used as part of a real-world experiment to determine whether the Covid-19 vaccine should be offered to all children, they are being treated in essence as sacrificial lambs.”

Adverse Reactions To The Covid-19 Vaccines Suffered By Infants (DE)

They’re coming for the children. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has issued advice to Sajid Javid’s Department of Health and Social Care, stating that children with disabilities should be offered a Covid-19 vaccine, despite the fact real world data shows that children as young as two-months-old in the USA have suffered paralysis, cardiac arrest and death after being given one of the experimental jabs. The JCVI said in a statement issued on the 19th July 2021 that “children aged 12 to 15 with severe neuro-disabilities, Down’s syndrome, immunosuppression and multiple or severe learning disabilities, should be offered the Pfizer / BioNTech mRNA Covid vaccine.

They have also recommended that “children and young people aged 12 to 17 who live with an immunosuppressed person should be offered the vaccine”. The reason the JCVI give for this is that “immunosuppressed household contacts, who are at higher risk of serious disease from COVID-19 may not generate a full immune response to vaccination.” therefore in their opinion this will indirectly protect them. Perhaps the JCVI aren’t aware that the Covid-19 vaccines have not been proven to prevent infection or transmission? But they are aware that real-world data on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines in children is limited, and they are also aware that the Pfizer vaccine and Moderna vaccine are causing myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the membrane around the heart) in younger adults; they say as such in their statement.


They’re also aware that all children and young people are at very low risk from Covid-19. Symptoms, and they know that fewer than 30 children have died because of Covid-19 in the UK since March 2020, all of them having severe underlying conditions which were the probably cause of death rather than the alleged Covid-19. So why are the JCVI recommending the Pfizer Covid-19 jab is given to children with disabilities and learning difficulties when they are fully aware of the above? These vulnerable children will be used as part of a real-world experiment to determine whether the Covid-19 vaccine should be offered to all children, they are being treated in essence as sacrificial lambs. That is evident from the fact that the JCVI recommend children with learning difficulties should be offered the jab.

CNN: Segregate Unvaccinated, Make Them Pay For Tests Every Day (SN)

CNN continued its wall to wall broadcasts calling for unvaccinated people to be punished, with analysts again calling for those who haven’t gotten the COVID shots to be segregated from society and forced to pay for tests every single day. First up was CNN’s resident medical health “expert” Dr. Leana Wen who called for vaccine passports and forever masking. “I think it depends on the circumstance,” Wen said, explaining “So if you’re going to the grocery store, and the grocery store doesn’t have the capacity to enforce some kind of proof of vaccination, then they have to say that indoor masking needs to apply, because we don’t know who’s vaccinated and who’s not.” “The same thing for schools,” Wen continued, adding “Schools, you can’t expect the teacher in every school to be asking ‘well you’re not wearing a mask so are you vaccinated or not?’

And so that’s the case, everyone should be wearing masks.” “But I can imagine there are already concert venues or workplaces that are saying ‘if you are not vaccinated, you can’t come, or you have to get a negative test.’ And that’s what’s needed in order to really incentivize vaccines at this point,” Wen further stated. Wen previously suggested that life should be made as difficult as possible for those who are still opting not to take the shots, and that Americans should be banned from engaging in social events and forced to undergo PCR tests twice a week if they want to stay unvaccinated. She also previously advocated directly linking the amount of freedom Americans should be allowed to their vaccination status.

Next up on CNN, which should probably be renamed VNN, was Former White House senior COVID-19 adviser Andy Slavitt who proclaimed that the Biden administration should become “very aggressive” and force unvaccinated workers and students to take daily tests and to cover the costs themselves. “We should be really seriously considering whether schools, workplaces, government agencies ought to be saying, ‘Hey, if you’re coming here, you need to be vaccinated. If you’re not, you need to show you have a negative test every single day,” Slavitt declared.

He continued, “Look, if people say they don’t want to be vaccinated, which some people might say, I think it’s perfectly reasonable to say that’s fine. We want you to show up every morning an hour before work and get a negative test. Maybe even at your own expense. Until the point where people will say, you know what? It makes more sense to actually get vaccinated. If you give people that option, I think you’re going to see more and more people take the option to get vaccinated.” “Option.” Right.

Amazing deep dive. Primarily on Fauci.

Who Watches The Watchmen? – Fauci’s ‘Noble Lie,’ Exposed (Rixey)

Six months ago, I began my first article on scientific censorship during COVID-19 by introducing Dr. Fauci as a surprise character that had emerged unexpectedly while digging through what was then 83,000 FOIA emails, published by US Right-to-Know over the course of the last year: [see files related to Ralph Baric, Linda Saif, Rita Colwell, Colorado State/Rocky Mountain National Laboratory & the NCBI; other FOIA releases from Judicial Watch, Buzzfeed & the Washington Post include NIH funding of the WIV & Dr. Fauci’s emails]

I’ve been trying for quite some time to get people to understand the full scope of the Dr. Fauci ‘situation,’ but it’s clear that segments of our national leadership are preventing an honest and open inquiry into his actions because they fear the backlash/collateral damage that will result from the tarnishing of their sacred cow. It’s time Americans were told the truth – that the grant money sent to the Wuhan Institute of Virology [WIV] is merely a footnote in this narrative. After all, Dr. Fauci controls nearly $4 billion of annual grant funding for the NIAID, the institute within the NIH he has directed since 1984; over 37 years, more than 50,000 research projects have been supported with more than $50 billion [conservatively] of taxpayer funds have been doled out to them.

It’s reasonable to hold him accountable for the results of his organization’s efforts, but the direct funding received by the WIV for Gain-of-Function (GOF) research represents only a tiny fraction of Fauci’s involvement in enabling risky research – the 2017 repeal of the GOF ban was decided without the consultation of the Trump administration, even though news coverage during the pandemic blamed him for the decision. Neither Fauci nor his boss Francis Collins [the NIH director] bothered to clarify the record, which looks especially disgusting in the wake of persistent rejections of Senator Rand Paul’s assertions [with accompanying evidence] that the NIH ever financially supported such research.

Big Protests Mark Global Anger At Covid Restrictions (F24)

More than 100,000 people protested in Australia, France, Italy and Greece on Saturday, sparking clashes with police as they railed against Covid-19 measures and government sanctions against the unvaccinated aimed at prodding more people into getting jabs. Dozens of protesters were arrested after an unauthorised march in Sydney, with the city’s police minister branding those who took part as “morons”. Organisers had dubbed the protest a “freedom” rally. Attendees carried signs and banners reading “Wake up Australia” and “Drain the Swamp”. In France, where police deployed teargas and water cannon against some protesters, an estimated 160,000 took to the streets in nationwide protests against President Emmanuel Macron’s health pass that will drastically curtail access to restaurants and public spaces for unvaccinated people.

“Freedom, freedom”, chanted demonstrators in France, carrying placards denouncing “Macron, Tyrant”, “Big Pharma shackles freedom” or saying “No to the pass of shame”. The demonstrations highlight the conflict globally between people caught between the advice of the World Health Organization and other public health agencies and the need to earn a living — or simply to return to a pre-pandemic lifestyle. In Indonesia and the UK, governments have pressed ahead with easing of restrictions even in the face of surging. Meanwhile, around 5,000 people demonstrated in Athens, carrying placards touting slogans such as, “Don’t touch our children”, according to an AFP journalist at the scene. And in Italy protesters gathered in Rome to demonstrate against a mandatory “green pass” for indoor dining and entertainment.

Earlier in Sydney, demonstrators pelted officers with pot plants and bottles of water as they defied a month-long stay-at-home order, a day after authorities suggested the restrictions could remain in place until October. New South Wales state Premier Gladys Berejiklian said she was “utterly disgusted” by the protesters whose “selfish actions have compromised the safety of all of us”. Police said they issued nearly 100 fines and arrested 57 people. In Melbourne, meanwhile, six people were arrested. police said. New South Wales Police Minister David Elliott said a team of detectives would be scouring footage to identify and charge as many people as possible in the coming days. “Sydney isn’t immune from morons,” he said.

Sydney Police Fine 100s Of Protesters For ‘Filthy, Risky Behaviour’ (G.)

Hundreds of fines have been issued and dozens charged in Sydney after anti-lockdown protesters marched and clashed with police in what one deputy commissioner called “violent, filthy, risky behaviour”. The New South Wales premier, Gladys Berejiklian, said was “utterly disgusted” by the thousands who had breached the region’s coronavirus measures to protest, saying on Sunday that the scenes “broke my heart”. Detectives are now combing social media and footage from CCTV and police-worn body cameras to identify and punish everyone who defied stay-at-home orders, which are now entering their fifth week. Police issued 510 fines on Saturday, with the “vast majority” coming from Saturday’s protest. Two have been charged with allegedly striking a police horse.

State police minister David Elliott was scathing of Saturday’s unrest, saying: “Sydney isn’t immune from morons.” Victorian officials criticised similar protests in the state capital, Melbourne. The state’s Covid-19 testing commander Jeroen Weimar described those who took to the stresses as a “small minority having a self-indulgent tantrum”, with the Victorian premier Daniel Andrews warning that you “cannot vaccinate against selfishness”. The Sydney region is struggling to contain an outbreak of the Delta variant that started in Bondi last month, amid a sluggish vaccination rollout and persistent violation of stay-at-home orders among family groups. A Guardian Australia analysis has found it could take months to recede.

Around half of Australia’s 25 million people are in lockdown across several cities and states, with anger growing at the federal government for a vaccine programme that has fully inoculated less than 13% of the population since it began in February. New South Wales reported another 141 cases on Sunday, and two deaths, including a woman in her 30s who had no pre-existing conditions. “If anybody think this is a disease just affecting older people, please think again,” said Berejiklian. The ugly scenes in Sydney and Melbourne, – as well Adelaide and Brisbane – were also reflected across Europe as people railed against Covid-19 measures and government restrictions aimed at improving uptake of vaccines.

Australian Leaders Blast Protesters, ‘Strike Force’ To Track Them Down (RT)

Australian police have already issued hundreds of fines in the wake of mass anti-lockdown rallies, and are looking for more info about the violators, as state leaders condemn protesters for endangering other people’s lives. In just 24 hours after Saturday’s mass protest, police in New South Wales issued 510 penalty infringement notices, Deputy Commissioner Gary Worboys said, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. He vowed that the authorities will continue to investigate the acts of “violent, filthy, risky” behavior. “A strike force is set up right at this moment that continues to ask for people to bring forward any video files or telephone footage that they have of that sort of behaviour.”

NSW Police Minister David Elliott earlier announced that at least 22 veteran detectives will be working as part of a special unit to identify and track down people who attended the rallies. State Premier Gladys Berejiklian echoed these sentiments, saying she was “absolutely disgusted” by the mass gatherings, and urging anyone who recognized any of the activists to contact police immediately. “I’m just so utterly disgusted, disappointed and heartbroken that people don’t consider the safety and wellbeing of their fellow citizens. NSW reported two deaths and 141 new cases of Covid-19 on Sunday, which is slightly lower than the day before. Authorities, however, have hinted that as the protest risks turning into a superspreader event, the month-long lockdown in Sydney might be extended even further.

“We don’t want a setback, and yesterday could have been a setback – time will tell,” Berejiklian said. The state’s current lockdown rules bar residents from leaving home except to obtain food and other “essential” goods and services, for medical care, including vaccinations, and for outdoor exercise and “essential” work. The state of Victoria in the meantime recorded only 11 new cases, but Premier Daniel Andrews blasted the protesters for putting “many other people in real danger,” and said that he could not rule out that the state’s own lockdown will also be extended. “We can’t vaccinate against selfishness, and these people should be ashamed, absolutely ashamed, it’s just wrong.”

Since the pandemic began, Australia has repeatedly staved off the spread of Covid-19 with some of the world’s most draconian lockdown measures, in pursuit of driving new cases down to zero even at the expense of civil liberties. Over the course of the pandemic, the country recorded just over 32,700 cases and 916 total deaths. On Saturday, thousands of people sickened by perpetual restrictions and confinement marched through major Australian cities, chanting “Freedom!” and clashing with police who were deployed to disperse these “illegal gatherings.”

Protesters Slam Italian PM Draghi For Introducing Covid Health Pass (RT)

Protests against the Italian government’s plan to introduce health passes were held in more than 80 locations on Saturday, where people denounced the measure as discriminatory. Around 3,000 rallied in Rome and 5,000 in Turin, the capital of the northwestern Piedmont region, while smaller protests were held elsewhere across the country, Italian media said. Overall, demonstrations were reported in more than 80 cities and towns. People took to the streets to denounce the plan of the government led by Prime Minister Mario Draghi to introduce a health pass, known as the ‘Green Pass’. The document serves as proof that a person has received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, has tested negative for Covid-19 in the last 48 hours, or has recovered from the virus.

Starting from August 6, only Green Pass holders will be allowed into cafes, restaurants, gyms, and open-air shows. Protesters view the measure as discriminatory. Some marched with signs that read, ‘Draghi Like Hitler’ and ‘Freedom, No More Dictatorship’, while others carried Italian flags and lit flares. “We say no to the Green Pass because it creates A-class and B-class citizens – those who have rights and those who have no rights,” a protester in Rome told RT’s Ruptly video agency. “This is against Italy’s constitution.” La Stampa newspaper reported that some business owners took part in the protest, fearing that the introduction of the pass will lead to a drop in clientele and endanger their livelihood.

Draghi said the Green Pass is necessary to stop the spread of the disease and restart the economy. Some politicians criticized Saturday’s protests. “Hearing words like ‘slavery’ and ‘Covid scam’ makes me shudder. According to these irresponsible [people], 130,000 deaths were perhaps only imaginary,” Senator Licia Ronzulli from the center-right Forza Italia party said, as quoted by La Stampa.

London Anti-vax Speaker Threatens Doctors With ‘Nuremberg Trials’ (RT)

Anti-lockdown and anti-vaccination activists rallied in multiple British cities against the vaccine passport initiative. In London, one of the speakers triggered a major controversy by likening NHS staff to Nazi doctors. Thousands of people gathered at Trafalgar Square in London on Saturday for the ‘Freedom Rally’, to protest the restrictive measures introduced amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Demonstrators flooded almost the entire square, holding placards and banners reading: “No to forced testing” and “No to forced vaccination.” Many activists went as far as accusing the government of “crimes against humanity,” while banners seen in the crowd ranged from 5G conspiracy theories to flags reading “Trump for 2024.” Though minor scuffles erupted on the sidelines of the event, resulting in several arrests, the rally was otherwise peaceful.


The gathering was attended by controversial media personality Katie Hopkins, who just returned from Australia after her visa was canceled over a quarantine breach. Former TV presenter turned-conspiracy theorist David Icke was also present, as well as Piers Corbyn, the brother of former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. One of the speakers, Kate Shemirani, a former nurse turned-anti-vaxxer and conspiracy theorist, triggered a major controversy, calling the vaccines “Satanic” and describing them as part of a larger surveillance scheme – while urging people to send her the names of doctors and nurses involved in the vaccination campaign. “At the Nuremberg trial the doctors and nurses stood trial, and they hung.” “If you are a doctor or a nurse, now is the time to get off that bus… and stand with us, the people,” she said, claiming that a group of lawyers is helping her collect the information.

The whole Whitmer thing stank from the get-go. But that no longer matters in the US. What counts is what words make you feel, not what they actually mean.

FBI Using the Same Fear Tactic From the First War on Terror (Greenwald)

The narrative that domestic anti-government extremism is the greatest threat to U.S. national security — the official position of the U.S. security state and the Biden administration — received its most potent boost in October 2020, less than one month before the 2020 presidential election. That was when the F.B.I. and Michigan state officials announced the arrest of thirteen people on terrorism, conspiracy and weapons charges, with six of them accused of participating in a plot to kidnap Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who had been a particular target of criticism from President Trump for her advocacy for harsh COVID lockdown measures. The headlines that followed were dramatic and fear-inducing: “F.B.I. Says Michigan Anti-Government Group Plotted to Kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer,” announced The New York Times.

That same night, ABC News began its broadcast this way: “Tonight, we take you into a hidden world, a place authorities say gave birth to a violent domestic terror plot in Michigan — foiled by the FBI.” Democrats and liberal journalists instantly seized on this storyline to spin a pre-election theme that was as extreme as it was predictable. Gov. Whitmer herself blamed Trump, claiming that the plotters “heard the president’s words not as a rebuke but as a rallying cry — as a call to action.” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) claimed that “the president is a deranged lunatic and he’s inspired white supremacists to violence, the latest of which was a plot to kidnap Gov. Whitmer,” adding: “these groups have attempted to KILL many of us in recent years. They are following Trump’s lead.”

[..] Yet from the start, there were ample and potent reasons to distrust the FBI’s version of events. To begin with, FBI press releases are typically filled with lies, yet media outlets — due to some combination of excessive gullibility, an inability to learn lessons, or a desire to be deceived — continue to treat them as Gospel. For another, the majority of “terror plots” the FBI claimed to detect and break up during the first War on Terror were, in fact, plots manufactured, funded and driven by the FBI itself. Indeed, the FBI has previously acknowledged that its own powers and budget depend on keeping Americans in fear of such attacks. Former FBI Assistant Director Thomas Fuentes, in a documentary called “The Newberg Sting” about a 2009 FBI arrest of four men on terrorism charges, uttered this extremely candid admission:

If you’re submitting budget proposals for a law enforcement agency, for an intelligence agency, you’re not going to submit the proposal that “We won the war on terror and everything’s great,” cuz the first thing that’s gonna happen is your budget’s gonna be cut in half. You know, it’s my opposite of Jesse Jackson’s ‘Keep Hope Alive’—it’s ‘Keep Fear Alive.’ Keep it alive. In the Whitmer kidnapping case, the FBI’s own affidavit in support of the charges acknowledged the involvement in the plot of both informants and undercover FBI agents “over several months.” [..] An excellent piece of investigative journalism published by BuzzFeed on Tuesday documents that, far from being passive observers of the plot, FBI informants and agents were the key drivers of it:

An examination of the case by BuzzFeed News also reveals that some of those informants, acting under the direction of the FBI, played a far larger role than has previously been reported. Working in secret, they did more than just passively observe and report on the actions of the suspects. Instead, they had a hand in nearly every aspect of the alleged plot, starting with its inception. The extent of their involvement raises questions as to whether there would have even been a conspiracy without them.

    See? The problem is they didn’t burn things, and they didn’t wear black. If they’d done that, nurses would stand on the sidewalk, maskless, and applaud. To be a good neighbor and citizen, you simply MUST burn down your town. That’s communication and free speech.

    Yesterday @my parents posted this on Rage Against the Vaccine:

    “Oroboros- when they don’t really know, they’ll bs. I thought this about Snowden- what he did was make us all think they have everything or can get everything if they want– this made it so they could accuse and we would believe them because they had the data. Do they? Really?”

    I think this is an important observation. Believing the “all knowing tech giants” are gods among us is … interesting. And incorrect, in my opinion. Banks, health insurers, credit card companies, electronic medical records, etc., etc., are incapable of keeping their data properly sorted, correlated, or secure. But these tech giants and alphabet soup gov’t agencies are somehow able to sort through every last detail gathered on hundreds of millions of people and do something with that information?

    Right-o, then!! Kinda like how all vehicles will be self driving in … three, two, one … um, er, any day now.

    Believing in the “universal rounding up and control of all the sheeple through the use of technology” is damaging. We need to stop feeding the beast with our thoughts.

    Although I sympathise with the my fellow Australian protesters and those all over the world, I feel it’s the wrong strategy. It comes from a position of weakness and never really achieves anything except a feeling of solidarity amongst the protesters which granted can have its own benefits. We had huge protests against the Iraq war but we still went. By doing these protests they are inviting the government to crack down and spin a narrative about them, which we are predictably seeing in Australia. Once the system decides to do something even a majority being against it can’t necessarily turn it around.

    I feel the best way to protest lockdowns, masks, jabs etc is to just ignore them. Just live our lives, congregate, party, associate, create. Obviously a lot of things are closed, but we can create new ways to come together. Nothing wrong with 15,000 going down the park for the day of merriment and daring the cops to arrest all of them. The media won’t report on any of this because it doesn’t fit the narrative but I see the beginnings of it going on everywhere. And then when the crackdown comes, you win, just like Gandhi said.

    Agreed. Kudos.

    What I cannot fathom is this: It is in writing from the vaccine makers that the vaccines do not stop people from getting and transmitting Covid 19. What the vaccines do, is, for the person that takes one, supposedly reduces serousness of the disease. Period. This is irrefutable. It is not a conspiracy theory. It is fact acknowledged by the companies providing the vaccines. So why the unvaxxed are being ostracized and separated is bizarre to say the least.

    I wish the “alt” journalists with some mainstream cred such as Greenwald and Taibbi would hammer this along with the Ivermectin story. Great to cover student debt crisis and domestic terrorism, bs, but we need a barrage of truth that becomes overwhelming regarding the Covid situation, because this is something that will potentially subsume everything else. This is the clear and present danger to whatever freedoms we imagine we have left.

    “The lower the vaccination rates, the lower the infections”

    If you have been vaccinated twice, an infection is not likely to be a serious matter. And also you aren’t likely to be taking as many precautions as someone who is not vaccinated.

    My prev post listed various official Plandemic events (planning for a viral pandemic..)

    After some reading and viewing of these.

    1. Historically:

    Bio-Terror attacks — recall Amerithrax, evil djihadists, etc. Harking back, blatantly, to WW1 use of chem weapons, see for ex. Syria recent, fabricated chem attacks presented as the justification for regime-changing al-Assad, sort of the last-ditch of that story-line imho. The Ghouta attack was the epitome of clumsy fake. Amerithrax was a kind of melding of chem/bio, the agent was bio but the delivery was chem-like.

    The threat to the public was switched to the more non-detectable, terrifying micro-organisms, as these are not static but kinetic, they multiply, and travel, on their own. ‘Natural’ uncontrollable outbreaks became the thing, to hide that Gain-of-Function research exists and that it was, is, performed internationally, with the USuk as the most active and sophisticated, ahead of the game.

    Today “it is all China’s / other country’s fault” isn’t touted much and when so is unconvincing. No one country created and then released Sars-2 to attack, to kill large numbers, or even just to embarass one or more other countries. We are dealing here with a post-nationalist movement, or *globalist conspiracy*, or if one prefers, coordinated actions by various international actors following foolhardy actions by ‘rogue elements’ or ‘accidents.’

    Nationalists are decried as kooks (at best), national leaders are weak and dans la soupe…meaning in difficult situations.

    The prime ex. is Johnson in GB. His instincts / public persona, his Tory Base, favored an approach different from what was pretty much forced on him; the tension and contradictions between the two (let her rip who knows? vs. mega control on everyone) has been evident since early 2020.

    Result, we gawp at Bojo’s glorious “Freedom Day” with ppl queing up to club, coupled with the annoucement that pubs, restaurants, clubs, etc. will have to triage clients via VAX PASS come Sept !

    Corporations (Big Pharma, other Big Corps, Media, bought off / corrupted institutions like WHO, NGOs, etc.) wield mega power.

    2. Most or even all of the plandemic exercises concluded that:

    —the health-hospital system would be overwhelmed, incapacitated, —- there would not be enough PPE for health workers — some ‘measures’ or ‘controls’ or ‘xyz’ would have to be ordered to reduce transmission — (for some) a vax might be the answer.

    Understandable, as the projected no. of affected ppl was very high…the conclusions were baked in. Which countries implemented programs to address these potential failures? No idea, but nothing consequent in reports/the press, etc.

    So Reality followed the path laid down (and pretty forcibly imho) by Fictional Future Projections based on often rather fanciful pre-suppositions (aka, inputs into models), often divorced from any medical considerations, knowledge, as well as ignoring or even decrying past methods, most notably the isolation of ill, suffering, symptomatic ppl in *designated, regrouped – suitable* places. (China maybe an exception.)

    The other traditional policy, quarantine, applied only to entering persons and goods, sometimes sucessful in the past (hard to judge because of other factors) was melded with ISO and politized giving rise to a weird hybrid of ‘stay at home’ -> *lockdown* policies, resembling a reaction to a war-time threat, or societal breakdown, with high danger in the street, the open, in the air, from above – outside the home in any case.

    The ‘quarantine’ wing is exploited much as ‘sanctions’ are, blocking ‘entry’ – now ppl only – not goods.. in senseless series of underground arguments and power-plays (Tourist industry, Airlines, pressure which can be applied by X, Y..)

    @Noirette: excellent summary. Thank you. This sentence is spot on: “The threat to the public was switched to the more non-detectable, terrifying micro-organisms, as these are not static but kinetic, they multiply, and travel, on their own.”

    And since we can’t see *the enemy* those in power can concoct whatever story they choose and drub up stats to support it.

    On the crazy Joseph Mercola. Opinion of the New York Times:

    Mercola claim: “Then over its next 3400 words, it declared coronavirus vaccines were “a medical fraud” and said the injections did not prevent infections, provide immunity or stop transmission of the disease.”

    “If you have been vaccinated twice, an infection is not likely to be a serious matter. And also you aren’t likely to be taking as many precautions as someone who is not vaccinated.”

    I’d love to believe that but it’s not the message we’re getting from Israel, UK and now Iceland, apparently.

    Even double-jabbed Piers Morgan has had a nasty bout of the ‘rona, though there are those who wouldn’t think of that as a bad thing.

    “I feel the best way to protest lockdowns, masks, jabs etc is to just ignore them. Just live our lives, congregate, party, associate, create.”

    It’s something though probably not enough. I think you have to get ‘em where it hurts e.g. working to rule, strikes, highway blockages, that kind of thing.

    Re: protest outright vs protest by ignoring and just living life. You both make valid points. 🙂 My initial feeling was in agreement with @russell, but then I started thinking about what happens in the future if we don’t speak up now in response to this blatant trampling of our rights. And that picture was not pretty.

    We need both forms of protest. We should all be participating in one or both forms to the greatest extent possible. One form does not preclude the other, ay?

    Yesterday @veracious posted “Tucker is the 21st century’s Thomas Paine & he’s laying it all out for everyone to see & hear” and provided a link to one of the “Tucker Carlson Today” shows.

    I subscribed to TC Today (access is subscription based). When he rolled it out I signed up for 7 days free (3 shows uploaded/week). Based on the first 3 shows I decided I wasn’t interested and went to cancel. Got an offer for like 20-25%% off an annual subscription so did it.

    Each show is about an hour. Tucker asks questions, pays attention to answers, asks follow on questions. He does a good job and it’s great to hear more than a 45 second soundbite from intelligent and interesting people. Some of the guests so far include:

    Jimmy Dore. Brett Weinstein. Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Niall Ferguson. Glenn Loury. Archbishop Charles Chaput (he is thought provoking). Dave Portnoy. Dr Peter McCullough. Marjorie Taylor Greene (congress). Ron DeSantis. J.D. Vance (I didn’t care for Hillbilly Elegy but found him personally interesting).

    Highly recommend Tucker Carlson Today based on what I’ve seen so far. I hope he keeps it up because this show is currently a gem. And I gotta kinda tip my hat to Fox for allowing Tucker to do this. How many MSM stations are allowing Dr Peter McCullough to talk for an hour??

    I found this to be interesting

    SHOT:

    If you don’t believe in vaccinations, I genuinely think you are an idiot. Like, legitimately dense. A moron. I hope that every soda you order is flat. I hope that one of your boot-heels has a click and you can’t figure out why. I hope that you hit every red light. I hope that when you wake up in the morning and head outside to snag the paper from the lawn, you walk through your front door and into a spider web. But primarily, I hope none of your family or friends suffer from your complete failings as a functional member of society.

    Jordan Hayes, February 23, 2021

    CHASER:

    Yesterday afternoon, on July 6th, 2021, the world lost one of the brightest, most talented and deeply loved humans that has ever existed. Jordan Dale Hayes, age 33, died at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City. Less than a week before his death, Jordan went to the ER with chest pains. What was found to be a small heart attack quickly led to two open heart surgeries. Complications arose and Jordan suffered multiple catastrophic strokes that ultimately proved to be too much for his body to overcome. He passed quickly and painlessly surrounded by those who loved him the most.

    @Polder Dweller: Thanks for the link to the interview “Failure of COVID-19 Vaccines Due to Antigenic Escape of the Delta Variant” with Peter McCullough, it nails the research behind Sweden’s excellent health policy decisions specifying research studies every step of the way, culminating with his quip at the end, that the vaccine program should probably be halted. And excellently questions and overlays by Del Bigtree. Bravo!

    @Mr House: “I hope that every soda you order is flat.”

    Ha ha ha … that is one of my major life concerns right now. Especially considering I don’t drink soda. But there is my concern that the seltzer I drink with vodka might be flat. Hmmm ….

    Your CHASER isn’t quite so humorous. Too much of that happening. Since *when* have we seen people in their 40s and 50s having strokes and heart attacks that lead to death? I’ve seen this on the local syracuse website as well. It is not at all amusing.

    Perhaps Democritus can enlighten us. I’m sure there must be stats from previous years on adolescents experiencing heart inflammation at the level we’re now seeing now [post-vaccination] that will prove this is not a problem to worry about. I’m also sure there are stats of people in their 40s dying from stroke and heart attack that will definitively prove there has been no increase in that in Q1 and Q2 2021.

    <p>I agree. The best way to deal with this quasi-Stasi system is to undermine it, white-ant it as we say here, and wait it out. Easy for me to say as I am retired and don’t need to work outside the home, or deal with growing children.</p>
    <p>Demonstrations achieve nothing. During the Vietnam War plenty of demos were held and the government did not change its course in the least. If anythingTPTB hardened their hearts and grimly determined to go all the way with LBJ. It took an entire change of government (from right-wing to a splendidly humanitarian left-wing) before we quit the insanity. Australia can be such a bellicose little country at times.</p>
    <p>In Canberra things are quiet. Delta hasn’t reached us yet, although everyone is expecting it and the ensuing spasm of imprisonment. We can still move freely around. I know a number of elderly and middle-aged people who have been jabbed and no ill effects have appeared. I can only wonder what happens 6 or 12 months down the track. Weather here is cold, rainy, grey, “dreich” as the Scots say, and we haven’t seen any upsurge in fatalities — certainly none attributed to the jabs.</p>

    Claude Monet Water lilies 1904

    I used to spend a lot of time @ the Met looking at art, especially in the Monet/VanGogh/Impressionism gallery, where one could dream of different realities…

    This morning, like most mornings I communed with the Master artist, gratefully enjoying the sky & nature, the Master’s Infinite Living art that all the greats tried to replicate out of reverence…

    A little over 8 years ago I had a NDE with a soul shaking white light experience that changed me forever (at least during my human conversance) ~ In a microsecond I realized that I was part of the Infinite light, that I was directly connected to Everything, that I (along with ALL my siblings in the Universe) are unconditionally loved, never judged & that the Infinite was far, FAR beyond our limited human-based cognizance. And that if I asked for the Power to clear my emotions/thoughts I could touch the face of God, in the Now, for a few fleeting moments at a time.

    Most importantly, my EGO was not part that NDE, nor would it do anything but distract from the Infinite ~ I have to surrender my EGO Self & embrace my inner spirit NOW connection ~ The darkness has no -0- power over the Light. It’s like a dark room, once you hit the light switch the darkness is gone.

    When I was 6-7 I came upon two older boys that had captured a lizard in a lot next to my family’s apartment in Costa Mesa on a brilliant summer day. They turned to me in a maniacal glee & said “Watch this! We’re gonna blow the head of this lizard with a firecracker“…

    I was horrified before, during, after, compelling the li’ terrorists to accuse me of cowardice for trying to stop them & becoming disturbed by their murderous fun. My step-father told me they were just boys being boys, but I knew even then that was psychopath behavior. Such is the cruel, selfish dark child EGO if left to fester unimpeded.

    That which is born from flesh is flesh, and that which is born from The Spirit is spirit.

    Although scripture is FAR from a compendious source on the the Loving, Healing, Creative Power of the Universe, the teachings of Masters who walked in the Light should be taught, revered & followed for those that seek Peace that passes all understanding

    But alas, we live in a time where the child EGO reigns, addicted to approval, always lusting for the next dealer du jour to appease the dark mind.

    The Infinite judges no one; To do so would be an illogical incongruity just based on the Infinite availability of Truth, Love & Peace to all, regardless of any & all transgression.

    It is only the human mind (EGO) that judges & lacks forgiveness…

    Ego-maniacal thinking is the result of a desperate child EGO that refuses to surrender & everything is about FUN 😉

    @ polder, I sympathise but we have honestly 100s of years of evidence that it doesn’t work and just hardens the response, as ezlxa says. The response can sometimes harden so much that the military is bought in and it’s a massacre. It just gives them ammo to use against us and as I said comes from a position of weakness where we have no negotiating power. The goal should be for the government to ask us what we want, rather than us demand things from them. We have to set the example for those who are cowering in fear or wrapped up in the new religion, by making our lives so fun and happy that they can’t help but join in. David Holmgren used to say this about the climate protesters, that it’s way more fun to create the world you do want than to constantly fight the one you don’t. It’s not just sticking it to the man by resisting the covid narrative, it’s actually more FUN, as you don’t have to wear a mask, jab yourself, or stay inside. Plus why go back to that shitty office job? Come with us to the farm/garden/party!

    I think what we have to come to terms with is that the things they are taking away like travel and entertainment were going to go anyway due to declining resources trimming the fat back to necessities. The while point of the permaculture/self sufficiency/automatic earth movement was to be prepared for moments like this, to shed as many dependencies on the system as possible so it doesn’t hold the same power over you. Putting our dependcies back into our household, family and community is the way to go. The start of this Web site was imploring people to get out of debt, as having debt is one of the biggest leashes you can have. It’s much easier to tell your employer to suck it when you don’t have a big mortgage on your head. It is also much easier to do so when you have intact families and communities rather than atomised individuals. That’s why it’s so important to get out and talk, to start building things from the ground up. Let’s see this as an opportunity and act accordingly.

    @Veracious: Just this afternoon I had an hours-long conversation with a person that laid bare portions of the child ego in both of us. This was openly admitted on my part (literally used that language) and vaguely admitted by the other person.

    “That which is born from flesh is flesh, and that which is born from The Spirit is spirit.”

    “But alas, we live in a time where the child EGO reigns, addicted to approval, always lusting for the next dealer du jour to appease the dark mind.”

    @Archie: nothing we do from here on out is going to “scale up to a global population” at the size it currently is, much less when considering exponential growth.

    “We can all become mystical, spiritual nomads living off the land. That’ll teach those mother******s!”

    No. We can all do the best we can with the tools we have now, the tools we can find and implement in the near future, and the tools we can pass on for future generations to use. That is all we can do.

    Kinda like Carlin said (paraphrased) … humans think they will destroy EARTH?

    Quite a humorous thought, isn’t it? Damn, the hubris we humans have. Earth will be fine. Impart whatever tools and wisdom you can in the here and now. The youngsters will do the best they can in the future.

    Thanks for sharing, VP. It’s always a bit risky relating personal experiences that are beyond the scope of the average individual. Sometimes we don’t realize we are casting pearls until it is too late. I trust that TAE can tolerate the occasional woo-woo without the rending of garments. At least they’ve put up with me so far.

    In the early days of my own awakening, I wanted everyone else to share in my good fortune and would often blabber away about personal experiences of a sacred nature. These attempts were always met by blank stares, as if I were speaking Klingon. Over time I learned that it wasn’t productive to discuss things that others couldn’t relate to. I also realized that the ego was right there trying to grab credit, looking for approval and recognition. Thankfully, I never got any. Since ego inflation is the most common stumbling block on the path, one is truly blessed if this insidious fire is never fanned by others.

    Anyway, glad you made it back. Make sure to share your experience with IANDS, when you are ready, of course.

    Well, they aren’t my pearls so I just pass what was so freely given me 😉

    After my time ended trying to participate in the restoration of the Republic from the Child Empire destroying everything in its path, I became so disillusioned I almost drank myself to death.

    When the Light came I was ready to go, but I was given new purpose & energy that makes my stay here a happy adventure now…

    I began working with others suffering from alcoholism/addiction by example, along with a renewed commitment to rescuing, helping & rehoming felines dumped by sad folk that don’t realize everything alive is in this reality is connected to one-to-another, directly from the source, that it is a blessing to give rather than take and/or forsake.

    This is the bonus round for me, & as I’m under new management,so it’s not my fault if I fail, nor my credit if I succeed ~ We’re all here to help & love one another, all children of the Infinite. All I can be is a lighthouse in the dark storm, the results aren’t my responsibility.

    All I have to do is let go, which some days I do better than others…

    Every time we are disturbed, no matter what the cause, there is something wrong with us.

    @ archie who is saying that? Worrying about scaling up to a global scale is a waste of time, a left over from the rapidly ending fossil fuel period. There is no more ‘scaling up’, just different rates of scaling down. We all know the enormous issues facing us but we can’t control 99% of them so why worry about it. Focus on your local scale where you can actually do something, that’s the whole point. The only way systemic change happens is from the ground up, that’s seen everywhere at all scales in all systems. Being all doom and gloom doesn’t help and certainly doesn’t convince anyone that your side is one people want to be on. If it does come to violence so be it but focusing on that leads to a paralysing fatalism that is a hindrance rather than a help. Even if all we end up being is lifeboats among a sea of destruction at least that’s something. If a roving war band comes and kills everyone well that’s just how history goes, at least we will go down standing on our feet. The fear of death or the end of something is what is leading us into all this mess best to jettison it because nothin we can do bout it.

    @Mr. House: I notice that the original, more formidable strains of Covid and now vaccine-induced ADE seem to target with special vindictiveness those whose arrogance on the Internet courts karma. My personal favorite example is Trumpster cuckoobanana pastor Rick Wiles declaring that Covid is God’s punishment for sinfulness and the righteous Xtian faithful such as himself would never get seriously ill with it. So guess what happened to Pastor Sin-Of-Pride? He ended up in the hospital with the Coof.

    Tonight, after taking my son and daughter over to the mainland, so they could head home to big bad Toronto, I went for a short canoe trip. I put a 5 gallon bucket of water in the front of the canoe so the wind wouldn’t blow the front of the canoe, every which way, on me. I saw 2 white swans with maybe 3 young gray swans. I returned just after sunset. Unfortunately it was cloudy so no glorious sunset to see. Still it was relaxing and a nice way to end the day.

    Perhaps I’m alone in this thought, but if you guys have spiritual experiences and input to share, please do! This is a tough time and any spiritual “shoring up” from others is appreciated.

    As far as I can tell to date, Raul doesn’t censor comments. If others on here aren’t into your spiritual input they can scroll past it.

    I, for one, would value it. I imagine there are others on here who feel the same way.
