CDC Withdraws PCR Tests: “They Can’t Tell SARS-CoV-2 from Influenza” (GN)

On 21 July 2021, the 18 lines that rewrite the history of the Covid-19 pandemic were published. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) of the USA, the highest health authority of the American government for monitoring diseases and in particular infectious ones, has launched an alert that assumes the range of a nuclear missile against the rubber wall of the international narrative on the emergency caused by the SARS-Cov-2 virus ( believed to have been built in the laboratory by many scientific researches now ).

“After December 31, 2021, the CDC will withdraw the application to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the test first introduced in February 2020 for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. CDC provides this notice in advance to clinical laboratories to allow sufficient time to select and implement one of the many alternatives authorized by the FDA.”

This is the “Lab Alert” launched by the Division of Laboratory System (DLS), the specialized section of the CDC ( link at the bottom of the article ). Alone, it would already be enough to confirm all the investigations carried out in recent months on 97% unreliable tampons, as claimed by various scientific researches and international judicial authorities . But the official communication of the CDC (branched body in all the confederate states) states between the lines something already shocking, anticipated by Gospa News already last year: that is the risk that the nasopharyngeal swabs PCR, subject to cycles of variable amplifications , may not distinguish Covid-19 from a simple flu.

Visit the FDA website for a list of authorized COVID-19 diagnostic methods. For a summary of the performance of FDA-cleared molecular methods with an FDA reference panel. In preparation for this change, CDC recommends clinical laboratories and testing sites that have used the CDC 2019-nCoV RT-PCR assay to select and begin transitioning to another FDA-cleared COVID-19 assay. The CDC encourages laboratories to consider adopting a multiplex method that can facilitate the detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses.Such tests can facilitate the continuation of testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save time and resources as we head into the flu season. Laboratories and test sites must validate and verify the selected test within their facility before starting clinical trials. ”

The Real time PCR – also known as Quantitative PCR , abbreviated qPCR – is a method that simultaneously amplifies (polymerase chain reaction or PCR) and quantifies the DNA , similar but not to be confused with the RT-PCR method (Reverse Transcriptase -PCR ) . DNA is amplified by DNA-polymerase chain reactions. After each round of amplification, the DNA is quantified. Common methods of quantification include the use of fluorescent stains that intercalate with double-stranded (ds) DNA and modified DNA oligonucleotides (called probes) which are fluorescent when hybridized with a DNA. Real-time PCR is often combined with Retro Transcriptional PCR (RT-PCR) to quantify the expression levels of specific RNA: retro-transcription (or reverse transcription) produces single-stranded complementary DNA called cDNA (complementary DNA) keeping the relative concentration ratios of the different RNA species unchanged. In this way it is possible, for example, to measure the relative expression of a gene at a particular time, either in a cell or in a particular type of tissue.

Bill Gates Primary Funder Of MHRA, Owns Major Shares In Pfizer & BioNTech (DE)

An investigation has revealed that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are the primary funders of the UK’s Medicine & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, and that the Foundation also owns major shares in both Pfizer and BioNTech. The Medicine & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) extended the emergency authorisation of the Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA jab in the UK to allow it to be given to children between the ages of 12 – 15 on the 4th June 2021. At the time, the Chief Executive of the MHRA, Dr June Raine said the MHRA had “carefully reviewed clinical trial data in children aged 12 to 15 years and have concluded that the Pfizer vaccine is safe and effective in this age group and that the benefits outweigh any risk”.

We are left wondering if Dr June Raine and the MHRA have even read the results of the extremely short and small study. If they have then they would have seen that 86% of children in the study suffered an adverse reaction ranging from mild to extremely serious. Just 1,127 children took part of the trial, however only 1,097 children completed the trial, with 30 of them not participating after being given the first dose of the Pfizer jab. The results do not state why the 30 children did not go on to complete the trial. The information is publicly available [..] There was never any doubt that the MHRA would give emergency authorisation for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine to be used in children when you consider that a certain Mr Bill Gates owns shares in both Pfizer and BioNTech and is the primary funder of the MHRA.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation bought shares in Pfizer back in 2002, and back in September 2020 Bill Gates ensured the value of his shares went up by announcing to the mainstream media in a CNBC interview that he viewed the Pfizer jab as the leader in the Covid-19 vaccine race. “The only vaccine that, if everything went perfectly, might seek the emergency use license by the end of October, would be Pfizer.” The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation also “coincidentally” bought $55 million worth of shares in BioNTech in September 2019, just before the alleged Covid-19 pandemic struck.

The MHRA received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 2017 to the tune of £980,000 for a “collaboration” with the foundation. However, a Freedom of Information request which the MHRA responded to in May 2021 revealed that the current level of grant funding received from the Gates Foundation amounts to $3 million and covers “a number of projects”.

“More than 97% of people hospitalised for COVID-19 are unvaccinated..”

Because the vaccinated are no longer tested.

NYT going after Mercola big time. Who’s next? They’ll pick them off one by one.

Little Known Osteopath In The Spotlight As An Anti-vaxx Superspreader (NYT)

The article that appeared online February 9 began with a seemingly innocuous question about the legal definition of vaccines. 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. Instead, the article claimed, the shots “alter your genetic coding, turning you into a viral protein factory that has no off-switch”. Its assertions were easily disprovable. No matter. Over the next few hours, the article was translated from English into Spanish and Polish. It appeared on dozens of blogs and was picked up by anti-vaccination activists, who repeated the false claims online. The article also made its way to Facebook, where it reached 400,000 people, according to data from CrowdTangle, a Facebook-owned tool.

The entire effort traced back to one person: Joseph Mercola. Mercola, 67, an osteopathic physician in Cape Coral, Florida, has long been a subject of criticism and government regulatory actions for his promotion of unproven or unapproved treatments. But most recently, he has become the chief spreader of coronavirus misinformation online, according to researchers. An internet-savvy entrepreneur who employs dozens, Mercola has published more than 600 articles on Facebook that cast doubt on COVID-19 vaccines since the pandemic began, reaching a far larger audience than other vaccine sceptics, an analysis by The New York Times found. His claims have been widely echoed on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

The activity has earned Mercola, a natural health proponent with an Everyman demeanour, the dubious distinction of the top spot in the “Disinformation Dozen,” a list of 12 people responsible for sharing 65 per cent of all anti-vaccine messaging on social media, said the nonprofit Centre for Countering Digital Hate. Others on the list include Robert F. Kennedy jnr, a longtime anti-vaccine activist; and Erin Elizabeth, founder of the website Health Nut News, who is also Mercola’s girlfriend. “Mercola is the pioneer of the anti-vaccine movement,” said Kolina Koltai, a researcher at the University of Washington who studies online conspiracy theories. “He’s a master of capitalising on periods of uncertainty, like the pandemic, to grow his movement.”

Some high-profile media figures have promoted scepticism of the vaccines — notably, Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham of Fox News, though other Fox personalities have urged viewers to get the shots. Now Mercola and others in the “Disinformation Dozen” are in the spotlight as vaccinations in the United States slow, just as the highly infectious delta variant has fuelled a resurgence in coronavirus cases. More than 97% of people hospitalised for COVID-19 are unvaccinated, according to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention. President Joe Biden has blamed online falsehoods for causing people to refrain from getting the injections. But even as Biden has urged social media companies to “do something about the misinformation,” Mercola shows the difficulty of that task. Over the last decade, Mercola has built a vast operation to push natural health cures, disseminate anti-vaccination content and profit from all of it, said researchers who have studied his network. In 2017, he filed an affidavit claiming his net worth was “in excess of $US100 million”.

CDC ‘Actively’ Considering Face Cover Advisory For Vaccinated: Fauci (RT)

White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci has revealed that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) could soon reconsider its guidelines, recommending vaccinated Americans to mask up again. Top health officials have reportedly been having preliminary talks about revising mask recommendations for vaccinated Americans due to a rise in cases and concerns over the more infectious Delta variant of Covid-19. According to current guidance, those vaccinated against the virus do not need to wear masks in most public spaces. The revision of the mask guidance is indeed “under active consideration,” Fauci confirmed to CNN on Sunday. The infectious disease expert did not give a timeframe for when the federal guidance could change, but he praised those state officials who had already rushed ahead to reinstate local mask mandates in response to rising coronavirus cases.


“If you look at what’s going on locally in the trenches, in places like L.A. County,” Fauci said, “the local officials have the discretion, and the CDC agrees with that ability and discretion capability to say, you know, you’re in a situation where we’re having a lot of dynamics of infection, so even if you are vaccinated, you should wear a mask.” Fauci and other White House officials have used the uptick in cases to continue pushing unvaccinated Americans to get inoculated. Recent polling, however, has signified that those who have refused getting vaccinated thus far have little to no interest in changing their minds.

Great video.

The Other Side of the COVID Vaccination Argument (CTH)

There is a lot of incoming information from government and the private sector promoting the vaccine. Recently, there has been a significant uptick in compulsory demands for taking the COVID vaccine. This forced vaccination approach has made many people start to question why this coordinated pressure campaign has increased with such ferocity. As a result of such one-side information, people are increasingly skeptical. In this video below you can review the counter-position for why people do not want to take the vaccination shot.

159 Dead, 593 Hospitalized in Illinois Breakthrough COVID Cases (NBC)

More than 150 people have died and nearly 600 have been hospitalized in Illinois due to COVID-19 in “breakthrough” cases after they were fully vaccinated, according to state health officials. According to data updated Wednesday by the Illinois Department of Public Health, 159 people in Illinois have died due to COVID-19 or complications after being fully vaccinated. That figure equates to 2.3% of COVID-19 deaths in the state since Jan. 1, officials said. At least 593 fully vaccinated people have been hospitalized in Illinois, IDPH said. The state only reports breakthrough infections among those who have been hospitalized or died, following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, IDPH said.


Those totals mean eight more fully vaccinated individuals have died and 30 more have been hospitalized in the past week since the state last updated its reported numbers. The state does not publicize the number of residents who tested positive after being fully vaccinated but did not die or require hospitalization in order to “help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance,” IDPH’s website reads.

Biden DOJ Drops Civil Rights Probe Of Gov. Cuomo Over Nursing Homes (NYP)

The Department of Justice has decided not to investigate whether the civil rights of residents in New York’s government-run nursing homes were violated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s controversial admission policy related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In a letter Friday, the DOJ’s Office of Legislative Affairs told US Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), ranking member of that House Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, that New York was off the hook in connection with potential violations of the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act. In August, the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division requested information from New York in connection with a March 25, 2020, order from the state Department of Health that required nursing homes to admit “medically stable” COVID-19 patients discharged from hospitals.

It also sought records from Pennsylvania, Michigan and New Jersey, which adopted similar rules that the DOJ said “may have resulted in the deaths of thousands of elderly nursing home residents.” “We have reviewed the information provided by these states along with additional information available to the Department,” Deputy Assistant Attorney General Joe Gaeta wrote Friday. “Based on that review, we have decided not to open a CRIPA investigation of any public nursing facility within New York, Pennsylvania, or Michigan at this time.” In a prepared statement, Scalise called it “outrageous that the Department of Justice refuses to investigate the deadly ‘must admit’ orders issued by governors in New York, Pennsylvania, and Michigan that resulted in the deaths of thousands of senior citizens.”

“Where is the justice for nursing home victims and their grieving families? These deadly orders contradicted the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s] guidance, and needlessly endangered the most vulnerable among us to the deadly COVID-19 virus,” Scalise said. “Even worse, Governor Cuomo in New York intentionally tried to cover up the true death toll resulting from his mandate. Grieving families deserve answers and accountability. It’s unconscionable that Biden’s Department of Justice refuses to investigate the deadly actions that went against CDC’s medical guidance taken in these states.”

UK Economy Growing At Fastest Rate In 80 Years (G.)

The British economy is growing at its fastest pace in 80 years and could recover its pre-pandemic size by the end of this year, according to a leading economic forecaster. Buoyed by the vaccine rollout and a bounce back in consumer spending, the EY Item Club said it now expected GDP to grow by 7.6% – which would be the fastest annual growth in national income since 1941. The UK economy shrank by 9.8% in 2020, the worst performance in the G7. The optimism comes despite the chaos caused by widespread staff shortages as workers self-isolate en masse after being pinged by NHS test and trace. The “pingdemic” is affecting the running of shops, restaurants, factories and even railway services as bosses struggle to find staff to cover shifts.

Although the economy has proved increasingly resilient through lockdowns, the EY Item Club report came with the health warning that the “future pattern of the pandemic and any renewed pandemic-related restrictions will have a significant bearing on whether the forecast is achieved”. The UK economy is more dependent on consumer spending on services, such as recreation and leisure activities, which meant that the lockdowns had a greater economic impact than in other countries, said Martin Beck, the EY Item Club’s senior economic adviser. The reopening of these “face-to-face parts of the economy means the UK should have a correspondingly faster recovery”, he said. In the spring, the group of economists, which is the only non-government forecasting organisation to use the Treasury’s modelling of the economy, pencilled in growth of 6.8%.

This is the second time this year it has upgraded its forecast, putting the economy on track to attain its pre-pandemic peak by the end of 2021. That milestone would now be reached some six months sooner than when it last crunched the numbers in April, with the UK’s successful vaccine programme a key factor. Recent surveys of economic activity have, however, been less encouraging, leading to concerns that the recovery is stalling. The IHS Markit and the Cips survey showed growth at its slowest since March, which was attributed to wide-ranging staff shortages, rising Covid cases and thousands of workers having to isolate owing to the pingdemic. It also highlighted a new mood of caution among the public triggered by the rapidly rising infection rates.

Judge Refuses To Identify 5 Market Participants In VIX Manipulation (ZH)

[..] on Feb 5, 2018 the steamroller woke up with a vengeance, and shortly after the close, the infamous volmageddon event took place when a handful of the most popular inverse VIX strategies crashed from near record highs to zero in a manner of minutes as ETN liquidation triggers were activated, sending the VIX briefly to record highs and wiping out billions in value and leaving countless retail investors stunned and facing total losses. Yet while to retail investors losses were in the hundreds or, at most, thousands of dollars (recall this was in the pre-stimmy stage when people cared about their money), some hedge funds got completely wiped out. One among them was LJM Partners, a Chicago-based fund that lost $446.8 million in one day from the market moves, wiping out 86.5% of its assets in seconds.

And so LJM and more than two dozen other investors and fund managers sued over the next year to recover losses, claiming unidentified market participants that rigged the index “repeatedly posted and immediately canceled” tens of thousands of quotes for S&P 500 options, whose prices are used to calculate the VIX. The plaintiffs, understandably furious at the events of Feb 5, claiming that unidentified market participants manipulated the VIX by posting S&P 500 options quotes that only stayed in the order book for milliseconds, not long enough for anyone to trade against but enough time for them to be incorporated into the value of the VIX.

That technique, known as “flashing” and popularized back in 2009 first by this website, was unrelated to any legitimate positions the unidentified market participants held or wished to hold, but successfully manipulated the price of S&P 500 options and futures contracts, LJM claimed, even though the CBOE which is the Chicago-based owner of the VIX and the exchange where S&P 500 options trade, has repeatedly dismissed claims of manipulation of the index. And while LJM has yet to recover any funds, on Friday the defunct fund suffered another setback, when a federal judge refused to identify five market participants accused in the lawsuit of manipulating the VIX index.

US District Judge Manish S. Shah, during a telephone conference Friday in Chicago, said the plaintiffs had failed to provide enough evidence of actual manipulation to justify revealing the names of the market participants, who were identified only by code names in exchange records. “Plaintiffs have not demonstrated good cause” for the disclosure, said Shah, who had earlier authorized the release of exchange data to help them make their case. “Rather than specific allegations of manipulation, plaintiffs’ complaints offer a menu of what they characterize as potentially manipulative conduct that may have occurred on February 5 and 6, 2018,” the market participants said in a court filing.

Many people asking where the bugs on their windshields went. Which is a typical “connection” with nature.

The Insect Apocalypse: ‘Our World Will Grind To A Halt Without Them’ (G.)

In 2015 I was contacted by the Krefeld Society, a group of entomologists who, since the late 1980s, had been trapping flying insects on nature reserves scattered across Germany. They had amassed insects from nearly 17,000 days of trapping across 63 sites and 27 years, a total of 53kg of insects. They sent me their data to ask for my help in preparing it for publication in a scientific journal. In the 27 years from 1989 to 2016 the overall biomass (ie weight) of insects caught in their traps fell by 75%. In midsummer, when in Europe we see the peak of insect activity, the decline was even more marked, at 82%. I thought initially that there must have been some sort of mistake, because this seemed too dramatic a drop to be credible. We knew that wildlife in general was in decline, but for three-quarters of insects to have disappeared so rapidly suggested a pace and scale of decline that had previously not been imagined.

In October 2019 a different group of German scientists published their findings from a study of insect populations in German forests and grasslands over 10 years from 2008 to 2017. The study’s results were deeply troubling. Grasslands fared worst, losing on average two-thirds of their arthropod biomass (the insects, spiders, woodlice and more). In woodlands, biomass dropped by 40%. What about elsewhere? Is there something peculiar going on in Germany? It seems highly unlikely. Perhaps the best-studied insect populations in the world are the UK’s butterflies. They are recorded by volunteers as part of the Butterfly Monitoring Scheme, the largest and longest-running scheme of its kind in the world. The trends it reveals are worrying. Butterflies of the “wider countryside” – common species found in farmland, gardens and so on, such as meadow browns and peacocks – fell in abundance by 46% between 1976 and 2017.

Meanwhile, habitat specialists, fussier species that tend to be much rarer, such as fritillaries and hairstreaks, fell by 77%, despite concerted conservation efforts directed at many of them. Worldwide, although the bulk of insect species – the flies, beetles, grasshoppers, wasps, mayflies, froghoppers and so on – are not systematically monitored, we often have good data on population trends for birds that depend on insects for food, and these are mostly in decline. For example, populations of insectivorous birds that hunt their prey in the air (ie the flying insects that have decreased so much in biomass in Germany) have fallen by more than any other bird group in North America, by about 40% between 1966 and 2013. Bank swallows, common nighthawks (nightjars), chimney swifts and barn swallows have all fallen in numbers by more than 70% in the past 20 years.

In England, populations of the spotted flycatcher fell by 93% between 1967 and 2016. Other once-common insectivores have suffered similarly, including the grey partridge (-92%), nightingale (-93%) and cuckoo (-77%). The red-backed shrike, a specialist predator of large insects, went extinct in the UK in the 1990s. Overall, the British Trust for Ornithology estimates that the UK had 44m fewer wild birds in 2012 compared with 1970. All the evidence above relates to populations of insects and their predators in highly industrialised, developed countries. Information about insect populations in the tropics, where most insects live, is sparse. We can only guess what impacts deforestation of the Amazon, the Congo, or south-east Asian rainforests has had on insect life in those regions. We will never know how many species went extinct before we could discover them.

CNN Airs Hour-Long Public Service Message On Dementia (BBee)

As part of a campaign to raise awareness and improve public knowledge on treatment options, CNN aired an hour-long public service announcement on the warning signs of dementia Wednesday night. The PSA, which ran over an hour, showed tragic footage of an old man ranting and making nonsensical, confusing statements. CNN says they hope the footage will encourage family members of the elderly to get them tested for the early warning signs of dementia. The cable news channel displayed a phone number for a hotline people can call if they believe someone they know might be suffering from symptoms of the condition.


“If you or a loved one act like this man,” said Don Lemon, “please, we beg you, get help. Slurred speech, inaccurate statements, an inability to remember where you are—these are all signs that your loved one might be suffering from dementia, whether he’s retired or the president of the United States.” “… and we’d take the rhubarb and we’d put it in the pie, right in the ol’ pie,” the old man said suddenly, in a rare moment of lucidity. “It was incredible. You wouldn’t think rhubarb would taste good, but it’s the sweetness. The strawberries. The strawberries. The strawberries. That’s what makes it work! Airplanes! Airplanes are neat, you know, but they’re a myth. How do they get them up there? They don’t—d-d-don’t even have feathers.” Many of the attendees were touched by both the PSA and the old man.

    As I recall, Pierre Kory gave these recommendations on the Dark Horse podcast a few weeks ago:

    For prophylaxis: Loading doses on Day 1 and Day 3, then follow up doses every 14 days. Early FLCCC recommendations were follow up doses every 7 days, but is probably unnecessary. One study showed that every 30 days also worked, but not as effectively. Every 14 days is probably ideal.

    For treatment: Doses on Day 1 and 3, then Day 7, and if symptoms persist, another dose on Day 9.

    Your dose is 0.3 mg / kg body weight.

    One dose on Day 1,3,5 with food.
    No alcohol for 48hrs after dose.

    Then one dose weekly for one or two months.

    Also, add 500 mg Azithromycin daily for the first week.

    From yesterday, Russel wrote: “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.”

    From what I’ve been seeing from Oz, I believe you’re right. I was thinking in terms of NL where we’re not at that stage (yet). Even over the last couple of years we’ve had farmers protesting by driving their tractors over the motorways to The Hague and managing to secure some important concessions from the government.The police reaction was calm with very few incidents. Things are beginning to change even here, unfortunately.

    So I think it’s perhaps more interesting to redirect fire away from the general public, whether they be for or against the vaccines, and aim it at the perpetrators. One idea would be to re-badge the “Chinese virus” or “Wuhan virus” and start calling it what it is, e.g. #faucivirus. Perhaps we can get that going viral (pun intended).

    Then perhaps we can consider doing something similar to the vaccines, like the #gatesvaccine or #WEFvaccine. I would like to use #genocidevaccine as well, but it’s probably too “in your face” and so we would need some more euphemistic word for genocide if such a thing exists. How about the #finalsolutionvaccine?

    Man, I missed it on the Cleveland Indians. Although my response was correct, it was general – that their “help” plan was to erase history and people — the case was specific. The Cleveland Indians were FOUNDED on the real Indians, the first one in baseball, Louis Sockalexis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Sockalexis So they should be PROUD of what they did, but are so mind-bendingly ignorant, so cowardly, devoid of their own history, and so incapable of “typing” in “Google” that they annihilated his legacy, while Louis was honored in the American Indian Athletic Hall of Fame.

    Nice going. The other reason I’m mad is that I already knew that, I think I even said it before, but there’re so many lies, and I have so much useless tripe I shouldn’t have to keep in my head, that I forgot. It’s like the perfect example.

    It’s as if you had a town, or a city, named after the people there. Mt. Lumbee, on the Lumbee river, but not to be raycissss, to culturally appropriate – that is, to learn, honor, and integrate valuable knowledge as brother humans – they erased the name and called it Racist-ville, in honor of admitting that they, all the people, and all the history of the city are founded on racism. What happens? Wonderfully, the Lumbee tribe is removed from history and ceases to be even thought of evermore –the final extinction — and as that particular tribe doesn’t have a reservation and is struggling for recognition, both erases them from American history, AND undermines their present legal cases. But the “white guys” (actually the Stoopid guys) did that. Without asking. Against the advice of almost everyone.

    See WhutIMean?

    Hey, not to culturally appropriate England, we should re-name New “York” to “Embezzle-town”. Stuyvesant Plaza can be called “Useless-Violent-General-Place”, and the Hudson can be called “Dirty Waters”. Whaddya think? Too “Idiocracy” for us, or just about right?

    The Left: trampling and erasing minorities from history since 1829. Read a book. Don’t burn them. When everything’s a lie I can’t keep up. Can we go do something useful, like working and feeding people now? Stopping the Indian rape safaris?

    Two narratives, dead opposites. Why would I be surprised? Meanwhile 40% (or was it 60%?) of UK presenting cases – that is, bad enough to see a hospital – are vaccinated. That’s basically saying vaccine has NO benefit, as it’s essentially equal to NOT being vaccinated. Clearly worse, as we’ve seen 11k deaths, and an orders-of-magnitude increase in harm specifically to children, who as above cartoon, are 99.9999% safe. Ad 3x increase in child suicide. Kill the kiddies, save grandpa for an extra his last 6 weeks. …Except for the save grandpa part.

    “CDC ‘Actively’ Considering Face Cover Advisory for Vaccinated: Fauci (RT)”

    I was going to bring this up. Since flippity-floppiting Fauci again will cause even MORE distress to The Narrative™, the reason he’s doing this is as our riot indicator. Just like last time. And like I said last time. The audits aren’t going great and we’re going for planned, now irreversible “hyper”inflation and food shortages, so they need to create some riots and see if they can get us to swing so they can get their planned violent public attack going on us. …Doesn’t seem to be going too well for them. The people more or less refuse to be violent, nothing they say makes any sense, and not only do they lose people constantly who refuse to join and do what they’re told unthinkingly, but they’re now losing the Left, with a new War n’ Drugs (and “Fund Hunter Biden”) bill, even on pot, MOAR wars on black folks (in Africa, like Obama did) kids-n-cages, Kamala “Don’t Come Here” Harris, censoring the Progressives, Bernie signing up silently to everything, AOC funding the Police (in D.C.) and supporting oppressive governments in Cuba against the people, and much, much more. Who knew the guy that wrote the crime bill and oversaw 7 new wars on brown people would put people in jail for pot and start more wars? Never saw that coming.

    I’d say it’s going great. All this was supposed to land on Cheeto in his second term, where he’s claim a bad election, send in the Army, then they could “resist”, riot, and like parasites, fight the host, the American Body Politik. That is their present method, having lost their own CENTER-left. Without an evilly-evil villain, however, they’re lost. Like the Morning Star, they exist only in OPPOSITION, in fighting, in counterfeiting. Left to their own, they collapse because tearing things down is easy, but having good ideas and building things – nations — is hard. To live they have to have someone to blame.

    So, as per this thing they did, this same pass play they’ve run every day for 5 years, the Mil-Intel Block just stop fighting the Left and let them go too far, and be exposed to the people. Day after day. With all the illogical nonsense that changes hourly. “Take the Vaccine!” says the guy who said he’d never take it, would never trust it, ’cause Trump.

    Now they set up the food shortages, the currency destruction, the collapse of empire, the stomping Fauccism, and put THEIR face on it, then sat back and played golf and had summer BBQs in wide open states, free as can be. So Mil-Intel won’t be interested in putting real steam behind the audits until the market/currency collapses on the DNC. The Neo-Lib’s gambit to own and therefore Empire/Hypothecate all resources in Cuba in order to stave off their vertically-compounding bankruptcy –attackin’ some brown folks — seems to have failed, like the failing failures they are, so shouldn’t be too much longer. Why act? I’ll wait. Buy Bitcoin, which is up 30% this week, then buy a whatcha-callit you need for the house. Or one 12oz steak at present price rises.

    Betting these guys are corrupt, useless failures is the easiest bet in the last 100 years.

    Anyway: Fauci is helpfully telling us they have riots cooked up soon, probably to counter the audits. Same as the “Cyber-pandemic” shuttin’ down speech. However, their problem is riots are now BIDEN’S riots, against HIS country and are HIS failure, which put them in the biggest pickle they’ve seen. I laugh. Laugh and don’t take them seriously because, although still dangerous, they aren’t “real.” Or not yet anyway. Americans are holding together and looking to hold together even more shortly. It stinks but it’s better than the alternative.

    @V. Arnold: You asked about ivermectin treatment-dose. There is more than one way to skin that cat.
    I dose with 0.2 mg/kg/dose (1 mg per 11# body weight) on days 1, 2, 4 and 6 now.
    People were getting symptom-sags between day #1 and day #3 when I dosed days 1, 3, 5 and 6.
    I advise zinc (gluconate is a good form) 50 mg three times per day,
    and you might take quercetin (250-500 mg) + lecithin (level-teaspoon or capsule) twice per day with that.

    Read that article. His symptoms are 100% what i had in Feb of 2020. So what is the point of the jab? Its not to prevent the disease and its not to prevent hospitalization because most people with those symptoms will not go to the hospital. They’ll take cold and flu meds and try to sweat it out. Never forget that even before “delta” most people who had it didn’t know they had it, so essentially it seems like we’ve made no progress. Ah but we have made progress, the discrimination has moved, from masks to jabs now.

    Also, the CDC is now not advising use of the PCR test to diagnose it which shall not be named. Mainly due to it not being able to diagnose it which shall not be named. In a sane world, you would then throw out all of the test you’ve been shoving in people’s faces for the past year and a half to justify your power grab, but that won’t happen.

    Re. the ‘protests’ discussion in prev. thread, I agree with russell, ezixa, upstateNYer, polder…in the sense of all good points.

    russell wrote: 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.

    Protests have become part of performance, show-off, show-yourself, ‘reality.’ Any expectation re. effects (besides the solidarity experienced, see russell), must pass thru a media lens.

    If the MSM don’t report the protests, or misrepresent them (showing one crazed protestor hitting a cop for ex.) then nothing is gained, achieved. In F, the media even made the case on occasion that the Yellow Vests were disrupting daily life and *ambulances* and so were nefarious to all. (The YV protests / movement was killed off by COV-19.)

    russell wrote: I feel the best way to protest lockdowns, masks, jabs etc is to just ignore them.

    Yes, but that is difficult to organise collectively. Ppl tend to REACT instead of staying low-key, conventional, acting as usual.

    Collective action on the ground, beyond protests, generally takes two forms.

    —Actions that attract attention, a great show, attention grabber, sympathy appeal, etc. Again, via the media.

    —Strikes and disruptions in Real Life.

    In F for ex. a general strike would put paid to the COV-pass. Nobody is talking about it. (Ppl are divided, because ‘virus’, illness, scary..)

    Strikes can be tailored down to specific disruptions by /x/ groups.

    Many scenarios have been elaborated over time. A well-known one, occupy an airport. By putting activists in all the toilets, locking themselves in with what they need, a change in queue can also be done. OK, the actors risk quite a bit …but hey ho? Airport shuts down, including for the private planes. Other such actions are not difficult to dream up. Nobody, nobody, is going down that kind of route.

    The toads that stick to my window are few and very thin. There are no bugs, moths, katydids, beetles- even when I put up a blacklight. We live on a swamp and we don’t even have mosquitoes. The city has stopped coming to look for their larvae; they’ve stopped dropping their anti-mosquito pellets.
    We have one bat, instead of a dozen. There are ten swallows where there were once a hundred. Thousands of Odonata (dragon- and damsel-flies) are reduced to a few dozen. Flies are doing okay, but ant populations are way down. Swarmers have nearly disappeared.
    We have lived here thirty years and this is the worst year we have seen. We don’t use pesticides or herbicides. The neighbors do, but they always have.
    Healthy insect populations somewhere else is no comfort.

    It is infinitely more concerning than a synthetic disease.

    I don’t so much worry about it long term- insects are resilient and will bounce back after we finally manage to do most of ourselves in- but I sure do miss them and their predators.

    I can’t recall who said it- that the “controls” would also be considered to be vaccinated- but if that slip of the tongue is added to Dr. Hoffe’s d-dimer tests showing 62% exhibiting micro-clotting soon after injection, can I suggest that about 40% of the vaccinees were injected with saline? And only the pharmacrats know which populations got it.
    I suppose- if the “controls” were in blue counties or certain fancy groups like celebrities and narrative-friendly pols- someone might call foul.

    Slate: “The New COVID Panic”
    https://slate.com/technology/2021/07/covid-delta-variant-risk-vaccinated-breakthrough-cases.html?utm_source=pocket-newtab

    Two things: first, “Panic” is by definition a short-term event. I’ve been hearing not just CV but five years of “They’re panicking” whether it’s left, right or center. By definition, they are not. But this is “Slate” and an chief editor from NYU, so they’re illiterate and don’t know words.

    More importantly, speaking of Vaccine breakthru cases, they say this, “Mostly, he felt frustrated. He’s a journalist—he’s pretty tuned in to the news. He knew breakthrough cases were possible, but he had seen many assurances that they were extremely rare and not that big of a deal. “I feel like I had very inaccurate information,”

    So REPORTERS are doubting REPORTER’S information. #Winning. Winning like Charlie Sheen.

    But right now, he feels worried—worried that breakthrough cases are more common than we think, that vaccinated people will get sicker than they think, that fears about the delta variant are not overblown, and that it might still get worse. Mostly, he’s worried that vaccinated people are not quite as in the clear as many of us seem to think”

    So vaccines make you more worried and anxious. …And here we all thought you’d already reached the horizon on that. “This one goes to “El-even” — Spinal Tap

    “The most important answer to these questions ought to be very familiar by now: The vaccines work.”

    NYU logic. She thinks the breakthroughs are far more common and much worse – more than enough to worry about “thoroughly freaking people out” – nevertheless they are great and work, and other than not working for a lot more people, they work.

    Not working = Working. Got it. Go on:
    “we are doing better than many of us seem willing to accept.”

    Yes, 99.997% better. For NYU students who failed math and live their lives “worried”, anxious”, and “thoroughly freaked out”. Was math REALLY that hard in school? However hard it was for you, SURELY the effort would have been worth the time and trouble it would have saved you by now.

    Oh and P.S. wear masks, because being from NYC, she is living proof about how lockdowns and masks work, and NY was nearly Covid-free after they started that program. …Oh wait, the OPPOSITE, for students who failed Science and Logic too. Maybe 18 months is too soon to call it? When Florida, Calcutta and the CONGO are safer than you?

    “the CDC is only tracking breakthrough cases that result in hospitalization or death, a decision a Harvard doctor called “disappointing” on the medical school’s blog. But medical professionals are starting to think about this more and more, and the suspicion is that they will happen with increasing frequency—and we shouldn’t be surprised.”

    Proving, because the vaccine didn’t work, that it works. And admitting the CDC is dumping good and useful data that might help us.

    Like this, yes said with total earnesty, with a straight face: “Hanage told me that a vaccinated friend of his had just had a mild case that lasted four days. And that still means the vaccines are doing what scientists like him believed they would.”

    Wow.

    But vaccines—as much as we want them to and as much as we maybe were even promised they would—have not wiped out the risk of any illness at all, and therefore they have not wiped out the need for personal risk calculus.”

    There is no possible satire for NYU students that could do an article like this justice. Not even like Winston writing correctly for IngSoc, she’s less than Fanny Crowne in “Brave New World”, incapable of objective reason, and good only as a sex-mating Freemartin for the night clubs of Brooklyn.

    Howso? She finishes with “You also don’t have to do this—as ever, living through this pandemic means taking the risks and precautions that are reasonable to you.”

    But get vaccinated, as a free person, and don’t not get not-not vaccinated, because you’re an evil, uncaring person of wrongthink, but get it, then wear a mask and get a 5-day layabout anyway, for the Party IngSoc. RIGHT!

    Kunstler comments on this today, as CNN reporters from CA marvel at why people don’t seem to be following their obvious logical and moral superiority anymore. Cuz THIS? Just sayin’.

    This person is having similar thoughts to yourself

    “There is a another reason for the high infection rates among the people who were supposedly jabbed: they were actually not and are still as vulnerable as before. It would be much easier to explain why the NFL or similar organizations push as hard for the not-vaxx as they do, if at least some of their top people knew that they will get a “special” kind of not-vaxx like salt water. Given the bad numbers regarding the negative side effects that had started to come out soon after the start of the not-vaxx campaigns, the most easy way to get out of having to choose between continuing with the not-vaxx-tyranny and risking to create to many victims and stopping the not-vaxx campaigns and thus losing the associated powers. If you not-vaxx half the people with salt water solutions, then you reduce the number of deaths by half and then you only have to argue that people need “a booster shot” in order to complete the job.”

    The Axis Mundi of Reiner Fuellmich legal case against the Plandemic is the totally inaccurate PCR test which was leveraged at the beginning to manufacture the panic in ‘cases’ that lead to the declaration of a World Health Emergency and thus the emergency authorization of the Faux Vaccines.

    The CDC suspending the PCR test (with too many cycles 45) is happening just as the law suits against it are forming up and gaining traction in the courts.

    What a Coincidence!

    Kary Mullis, who won a Noble for inventing the PCR, and said adamantly to NEVER use the test for diagnostic reasons, died ever so conveniently just before the Plandemic gone the checked flag for liftoff and can’t speak for himself now.

    Tried to make it one big omnibus post but the ‘boys couldn’t handle it. So, in chunks:

    “someone” said: On another note: from yesterdays debt rattle by Ilargi;
    No-one’s getting booted or blocked. While quite a few perhaps could blab a bit less.
    The response was predictable; passive aggresive, blah, blah, blah…
    Unfortunate given our host offers uncensored commenting for all posters…Unfortunate given our host offers uncensored commenting for all posters…
    A few, abuse that privilage with the majority of comments on any given post; discouraging many of us from saying anything further…

    ‘I think you break the wrong rules’, says someone whom madamski perceives as a reactionary, sometimes passive-aggressive, unpedantic bourgeoisie sanctimonious person.

    I think you obey the wrong rules, says the self-defined autonomous person known online as madamski.

    No one is discouraging you from speaking your mind, V. Arnold; you are discouraging yourself and then blaming it on others who do not feel your discouragement. I’ve heard that one of conservatism’s bedrock principles is the concept of taking responsibility for one’s own actions. Daddy, the bad womanz talks a lot and it discouwages me!

    This is Ilargi’s home, so-to-speak, and not respecting that is abuse; pure and simple…

    This is indeed Raul’s home, and it is up to HIM to define what is and isn’t abuse. Vague snarky remarks, by you, or for that matter, by Raul, are hardly that definition. To think that one’s personal definition is Raul’s, or universally correct, is merely one’s opinion, and opinions overlap heavily with delusion, btw.

    “Given most of us are adults (?) I don’t think discretion is a step too far…”

    Define what is and isn’t respectful of Ilargi’s domain, get Raul’s confirmation, and I’ll take you seriously as something more than an old fool like me hollering at kids to get offa my lawn. Is using some profanity too much? Is honestly expressing the contempt one feels for others who express their contempt of others too much too handle? Did Raul knight you to define and protect Raul’s home?

    “…adults(?)” followed by the evasive snark of “Stay classy, y’all” (with, among other non sequiturs, and it’s implication that the classiness of the one speaking is a priori established), is not what I consider ‘classy’.

    Fwiw, this notion that “staying classy” essentially overlaps with “be nice” is childish bullshit, social development retarded at the kindergarten level. We’re grownups. We hit when hit back – or should, imo. It’s kind of our job, part of that thing called taking responsibility for oneself, part of that weird thing called ‘survival’. We deserve the shit we put up with. We didn’t ask for it, but if we tolerate it, we’ve deserved it for ourselves.

    “Be Nice” is Big Brother’s favorite mantra. The current liberal nightmare uses it as a Founding Principle, typically applied VERY passive-aggressively.

    “No harm no foul. (GIFs on the other hand, please, stop. MySpace anyone?)”

    I see the point. Gifs are intrusive media, when posted to play, although the same is true of mere static images. I would willingly submit to a ‘link to images only’ policy, because some things, once seen, can’t be un-. A de facto caveat emptor. They don’t bother me, but I’m not everybody. (I think? 😉 )

    “I get why Taibbi needs to charge for his journalism, certainly worth being paid for. But linking to partial articles is a little frustrating.”

    OK, but one CAN pay to read if one so chooses. Orlov’s stuff, for example, is paywall and usually worth paying for if one is sufficiently intrigued.

    “And we were worried how the media would survive without Trump….Right from TDS to CDS!”

    Well said. I hadn’t thought of it in those terms although it’s obvious.

    “Oh well. We probably need more government, more helping, and more UBI.”

    It’s funny. From a utopian perspective, which is what secular humanism is about and what we would all prefer except a few rotten grapes, UBI made perfect sense in the Modern Era circa 1890-1950. Not saying that it would work: these are human beings we’re talking about. But it made sense. We’d realized we could create gargantuan surplus with science, wide open spaces stolen from aborigines, and fossil fuels. Technically, that would’ve been a good time that UBI could’ve been applied without necessarily being massively destructive but merely painfully instructive.

    It would’ve at least emphasized the concept of COMMONwealth rather than kings rule/all else drool.

    Why do I address this? Because it’s divisive. Especially from a guy who wants to form a People’s Party. I think the readership of TAE already have a working understanding of what the two alleged sides of Das Duopoly claim to be about vs what they are generally really about.

    It’s like choosing between shades of dog shit and then pointing out how much you dislike one more than the other. Bias confirmation alert: I eagerly await to see the logical contradictions you employ in response, while considering that the first clause of this sentence will imo likely incline you to clam up, while also considering how the second clause will imo likely incline you to speak up.

    Thesis, antithesis,… oh, what-ev-ah.

    As for critics, well, boo to you too:

    I say: aim for the stars: you might shoot a paparazzi. 😉

    Paranoia reflects itself in the object of its fear. Hence, we will turn from trusting our government maybe a little more than not, at least about core issues, to trusting them even less than not at all. We’ll project, for example, enormous overlord superpowers onto our leaders and super-wealthy as if they were Genghis Khan (who obviously did have the equivalent of political superpowers). For one example.

    But that’s just a matter of flavor and degree. Virtually all of us do this to some level and in some direction(s). I, for example, am always thinking google has become even dumber than it has already devolved until I remember that my mind can forget or mix a name in a heartbeat if I’m distracted while thinking en write, so the reason I keep getting Diana Ross when I want Dinah Shore is cuz I keep typing Dinah Ross. (Ah, the misty wonders of cannabis.)

    It’s built into the dynamic of the Shrinking Trust Horizon, yes? So as we become more suspicious, the PTPTB become even less credible THAN THEY ACTUALLY ARE. They could stop Donald Trump from shooting someone in the street (to get re-elected, of course) and not get credit for it, not be believed, or if believed be suspected of staging it for political benefit.

    Which puts them at huge disadvantage. About the time they really need to be believed, about the time the crisis is so genuine and dire they are for once not calling false-flag wolf, we won’t believe them if they said one and one equals two.

    Question for me is: has their AI gotten to the place where it lets them watch that credibility gap closure and time their moves adroitly, tells them when to run from behind the curtain and down the secret tunnel if they have one and it’s still secret (minions leak, everyone leaks, and the entire ruling cabal is at the age where it needs Depends)? When to slip out through the crack where the camera lens filter flips from the crediverse to the incrediverse? Not sure what that would actually look like but it seems highly nodal, to say the least.

    Demonstration by examples:
    Point:

    Family says conservative radio host has changed his tune on vaccines after he was hospitalized with Covid-19

    Counterpoint:
    Joe Biden exaggerated Covid-19 vaccine efficacy

    An interlude:

    “!no tienes idea lo pervoso que son ahu afuera” means “you have no idea how wicked they are out there”
    “!no tienes idea lo pervoso que son ahu afuera” means “you have no idea how wicked they are out there”

    The aliens have visited at least once. We have actual footage. It was, say the local elders of the Australians shown here, to show us what “GOOD STUFF” is. The survival of our very planet, they said, will soon depend on whether or not WE GOT GOOD STUFF.

    Some say that GOOD STUFF refers to music or dance or music and dance. Some say it refers to wearing colorful attire with giant brain-balls needing major shaving.

    All of the above, says I.

    Dubaian drone rain brought discussion of global climate wobbliness. If we can agree that the weather is seriously wonked, for whatever reason (“…that’s no moon… turn this ship around…”), that’s good. Because that is solid data we can run through computer models (have been for decades) and see what to anticipate: pretty much what’s happening.

    Having established that, it would be nice if we did something about it other than stick pins in Gore voodoo dolls while pointing out again and again that alt/renewables are, like every other business in town, a scam. Obviously nothing will be done with carbon credits except run distraction scams, which is par. Meanwhile we have things to prepare for. Call me unimaginative, but somehow I think that drone-storm flooding is not one of them. Funny how we can deny out of hand the very idea that global climate disruption might be anthropogenic but we can envision vast Ming of Mongo drone storms raining colossal cloudbursts for days on end.

    The Artifical Reign of the Rain Drones

    No biggie. Just this weird bias/contradiction I often encounter regarding Man vs Nature explanations of What the Fuck is Wrong?. Like: HAARP is real but anthropogenic climate change isn’t? That is one major contradiction in conceptual terms.

    “The only hope is another Julian Assange leaking that Data and after what has happened to him, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for that day to come.”

    Where to? That level of control also implies a matching level of internet censorship if TPTB like. I don’t think that a single source is the answer. We’re already sectioned off into echo chambers. Most people watching Jimmy Dore don’t watch MNSBC et vice versa.

    fwiw, I think that we’re the media buzz generator. People who are skeptical speaking to other people, especially those who aren’t skeptical. Gotta start somewhere. But we’re conditioned to start at the top. Everything is trickle-down these days.

    First one frogs croaks, then others. Croaking is dicey. Some heron working graveyard shift might sonar in on you. But most of the frogs make it through the night, the word gets out, frogs get lucky, eggs get laid…
