Should I take the vaccine?





I don’t especially like to agree with Laura Ingraham, but in this case I do.

Those Dying Post-Vaccine: Where Are The Autopsies? (WND)

My internal medicine training was in the dark ages before CT and MRI, but we were still supposed to make an accurate diagnosis. A patient who died without a medical history was an “ME case.” We had to call the medical examiner, who would decide whether an autopsy was indicated. Anything potentially related to the death, such as pill bottles, was evidence. If an injection had been given, the vial would be recovered if possible. With vaccines, one is supposed to record the lot number, so it would be possible to check a sample for contaminants. If the patient died in hospital, the medical resident was required to request permission for an autopsy. Survivors might be persuaded to OK one by the possibility that their loved one may have had a hereditary condition or an infection that might affect others.

In any event, we assured them that their loved one would be treated with respect and that funeral arrangements would not be affected. A chaplain would volunteer to attend. The most important reason was that the “altar of truth” was the ultimate “quality assurance” mechanism. Hospitals were required to perform autopsies on a certain proportion of decedents in order to maintain their accreditation. A classic study of 100 randomly selected autopsies from each of three years (1960, 1970 and 1980) revealed that major diagnoses had been missed in about 22% of cases in all three eras, despite the introduction of modern imaging methods. Unfortunately, autopsy rates have fallen from 25% to less than 5% over the past four decades. It never was a revenue producer for anyone except malpractice attorneys.

I always attended the autopsy if I could. One of my most important teachers was a patient in whom we had missed a condition that was glaringly obvious when the skull was opened. We might not have been able to save him, but since we hadn’t even thought of the diagnosis, he didn’t have a chance. Tens of thousands of patients died of COVID before a series of 12 autopsies done in Germany showed that most had blood clots and could not have been saved by forcing air into their lungs with a ventilator. If a person dies after a COVID jab, I would like to know whether there are spike proteins in the tissues and blood vessels, and whether there was an immunological reaction that was damaging those tissues. If a mother loses a baby, I would like to see a thorough examination of the placenta. Was the baby’s oxygen and nutrition cut off because of damaged blood vessels?

I find it shocking that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Joint Commission that accredits hospitals are not demanding autopsies or testing of vaccine samples. It is not possible to declare a product safe and effective without obtaining direct evidence from potential victims. The manufacturers are protected against product liability, thanks to Congress. But where is the accountability of the government agencies charged with protecting us, or of the private entities coercing employees or students to take an experimental, potentially dangerous, or even lethal product? If someone you love dies unexpectedly, call the medical examiner, and demand a forensic autopsy.

‘Absolutely Government’s Business’ To Know Who in US Hasn’t Been Jabbed (Fox)

Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said Thursday it was “absolutely the government’s business” to know which Americans haven’t been vaccinated yet against the coronavirus. Responding to GOP criticisms of the Biden administration’s planned “door-to-door” campaign to encourage unvaccinated Americans to inoculate themselves, Becerra told CNN the government has had to “spend trillions of dollars to try to keep Americans alive during this pandemic.” “So it is absolutely the government’s business, it is taxpayers’ business, if we have to continue to spend money to try to keep people from contracting COVID and helping reopen the economy,” he said.

Becerra said people didn’t have to answer the door but he hoped they would so officials could dispel rumors about the vaccine, which has proven to be highly effective in driving down cases, hospitalizations and deaths. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 56% of the adult population has been “fully vaccinated” and 67% has gotten at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine. States that tend to vote Republican have reported lower vaccination rates, and polls show Republican voters are far more likely than Democrats to say they will not or likely will not get the vaccine. The issue has become part of a larger debate over public health measures colliding with Americans’ personal freedoms.

Pfizer To Seek Authorization For “Booster” Dose To Protect Against Delta Variant (ZH)

Hours ago, Dr. Anthony Fauci emphatically defended the efficacy of the three American-made vaccines that have received emergency authorization for use by the FDA. His comments weren’t unprompted: reports out of Israel claiming the Pfizer jab is far less effective than advertised have shaken public confidence in the jabs, at a time where President Biden is about to send people knocking on doors to try and encourage more adults (and increasingly, children) to get vaccinated. It’s no secret that a handful of southern and western states are lagging the rest of the country in vaccine rollout. But not long after Dr. Fauci made his comments (which were picked up by all the major newswires) the NYT published a sneak peak at new research showing how the Delta variant bypasses the antibodies created by the vaccines, and prior infection with another strain of the virus.

It’s just the latest example of how the authorities don’t care about the “science” so much as protecting the narrative that helps Big Pharma sell the most vaccines. And while the vast majority of countries are still struggling with vaccination rates below 1% since they simply can’t get the supplies (while unused jabs are piling up across the US) – and Bill Gates doing everything he can to keep it that way – Pfizer and Moderna have apparently spotted an opportunity. Pfizer and its partner BioNTech announced Thursday evening that they will seek authorization from the FDA for a third “booster” dose of their COVID vaccines that will offer increased protection against the Delta variant (despite the fact that both Pfizer and its rival Moderna repeatedly insisted that its vaccines are still effective against all known variants including Delta), the Hill reports.

In a statement, the company referenced the data out of Israel, where government scientists have estimated the real efficacy of the vaccine vs. Delta is somewhere around 64%, while leaving particularly vulnerable patients at risk of severe illness and death. The booster dose would ideally be given within 6 to 12 months post-vaccination. “Based on the totality of the data they have to date, Pfizer and BioNTech believe that a third dose may be beneficial within 6 to 12 months following the second dose to maintain highest levels of protection,” the companies said.

Feds Dispute Pfizer On Need For A Covid Booster Shot (JTN)

Pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and BioNTech said Thursday they are developing a booster shot to combat the highly transmissible delta variant of the COVID-19 virus. As the pharmaceutical companies announced their shot, the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that fully vaccinated people do not need those types of booster shots. “People who are fully vaccinated are protected from severe disease and death, including from the variants currently circulating in the country such as Delta,” the FDA and CDC said Thursday, according to Axios. “Americans who have been fully vaccinated do not need a booster shot at this time.”

The companies cited a study by the Israel Ministry of Health released on Monday that showed the “vaccine efficacy has declined six months post-vaccination, at the same time that the Delta variant is becoming the dominate variant in the country.” “These findings are consistent with an ongoing analysis from the companies’ Phase 3 study,” the companies said in a written statement, according to CNBC News. “That is why we have said, and we continue to believe that it is likely, based on the totality of the data we have to date, that a third dose may be needed within 6 to 12 months after full vaccination.”

“The logic is confusing, but it goes something like this: Delta is scary, so get vaccinated…but vaccines don’t protect against Delta.”

Fauci Defends Vaccines But Antibodies Don’t Protect Against Delta (ZH)

As the world passes 4MM confirmed COVID cases, the NYT has just published new research published in the journal Nature calling into question the efficacy of US-made vaccines in offering protection against the Delta variant. Shortly before the research was released, Dr. Anthony Fauci on Thursday defended American COVID vaccines, claiming that the jabs developed by Pfizer, Moderna and J&J are all effective against the Delta variant, a mutant strain that has become the obsession of public health officials who claim that it could ignite another wave of the pandemic. But what they don’t tell you is that epidemiologists believe COVID is now endemic in the human population, and that reaching “COVID zero” simply isn’t possible.

At any rate, while the vaccine makers are salivating at the opportunity to produce lucrative booster shots offering protection against various variants, the new research previewed by the NYT and published in the journal Nature found that the Delta strain is able to bypass the antibodies produced by vaccination or prior infection. Delta, which was first identified in India, is believed to be roughly 60% more infectious than the alpha variant – the strain also known as the “Kent Strain”, or B.1.1.7, which was first identified by scientists in England. This week, as the number of new COVID cases climbed by double-digits from the prior week (while hospitalizations and deaths remained stagnant), Delta was declared the dominant variant found in the US. Almost as alarming, the researchers found that while Delta is able to effectively evade the antibody response, the Beta variant, which was first identified in South Africa, can do it even more easily. Here’s more from the NYT report on the research:

“The researchers looked at blood samples from 103 people who had been infected with the coronavirus. Delta was much less sensitive than Alpha to samples from unvaccinated people in this group, the study found. One dose of vaccine significantly boosted the sensitivity, suggesting that people who have recovered from Covid-19 still need to be vaccinated to fend off some variants. The team also analyzed samples from 59 people after they had received the first and second doses of the AstraZeneca or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines.

Blood samples from just 10 percent of people immunized with one dose of the AstraZeneca or the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines were able to neutralize the Delta and Beta variants in laboratory experiments. But a second dose boosted that number to 95 percent. There was no major difference in the levels of antibodies elicited by the two vaccines. “A single dose of Pfizer or AstraZeneca was either poorly or not at all efficient against Beta and Delta variants,” the researchers concluded. Data from Israel and Britain broadly support this finding, although those studies suggest that one dose of vaccine is still enough to prevent hospitalization or death from the virus.”

What’s more, the delta variant was also found to be resistant to antibody-based treatments, like “bamlanivimab”, the monoclonal antibody cocktail produced by Eli Lilly. Meanwhile, Dr. Fauci tells reporters that nine out of ten Americans who died from the virus were unvaccinated. Despite the growing number of vaccinated patients who are being infected and seriously sickened, insisted that the “science” shows the vaccines are extremely effective at preventing infection. The logic is confusing, but it goes something like this: Delta is scary, so get vaccinated…but vaccines don’t protect against Delta. It’s just the latest reminder that Dr. Fauci & company don’t care about “the science”.

Fauci Tells People Hesitant About The Vaccine To ‘Just Get Over It’ (DC)

White House senior medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday that people hesitant about getting vaccinated against COVID-19 should “just get over it.” Fauci appeared on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes,” where he went on a rant equating people’s hesitancy towards the vaccines’ safety to a “political statement.” “This is not complicated. We’re not asking anybody to make any political statements one way or another,” he said. “So many diseases that I deal with … don’t have solutions. It’s very frustrating — you don’t have a treatment, or you don’t have a vaccine,” Fauci added. “Here, we have a vaccine that’s highly, highly effective.”

“What is the problem? Get over it. Get over this political statement. Just get over it and try and save the lives of yourself and your family.” he concluded. Fauci has previously warned about the possibility of the emergence of “two Americas” as a result of low vaccination rates in some areas of the country. “When you have such a low level of vaccination superimposed upon a variant that has a high degree of efficiency of spread, what you are going to see among under-vaccinated regions … you’re going to see the individual types of blips. It’s almost like it’s going to be two Americas,” Fauci said on June 30.

Sturgeon Warns Against Treating Young People Like Covid ‘Guinea Pigs’ (G.)

Nicola Sturgeon has warned against treating young people like “guinea pigs” by allowing them to get infected with coronavirus when lifting restrictions, amid fears they remain at risk of significant health impacts such as long Covid. Scotland’s first minister said the desire to live free of lockdown-style restrictions did not mean governments could “throw all caution to the wind”, while suggesting the “domination” of England’s plans to scrap Covid rules risked confusing other UK nations. The steep rise in infections across Scotland caused by theDelta variant may be levelling off, Sturgeon added. The current spike has led to six Scottish health boards being placed among the top 10 worst-hit regions in Europe by the WHO last weekend.

The levelling off gave her “more cause for optimism” that she would be able to confirm the move to level 0 of Scotland’s five-tier system of Covid controls in parliament next Tuesday, she said, before emphasising that the planned easing on 19 July “won’t be an abrupt end to basic protective measures like face covering, physical distancing, rigorous hand hygiene and advising on good ventilation.” However, she pointed out the “significant” impact the virus can have on younger people, even if there is a lower risk of death. She said: “I want to set out simply why we can’t just throw all caution to the wind. Firstly, this virus is still dangerous, as we see every day. It is still taking lives, though mercifully, thanks to the vaccines, it is doing so in far fewer numbers than we saw in earlier stages.”

That comment is pro-vaccination. You would’t know without the context.

Risking England’s Health: Not Everyone Can Choose To Stay Safe (G.)

In a letter to the Lancet, over 100 global scientists have warned that rushing ahead with reopening on 19 July – rather than waiting until more people are vaccinated – is dangerous and premature. Those concerns will be compounded by the relaxation of travel restrictions announced on Thursday. Allowing children and double-vaccinated adults to travel to amber list countries without quarantining on return increases the risk of importing new variants which could be more infectious or more resistant to current vaccines, just as opportunities for transmission increase. The health secretary, Sajid Javid, concedes we could soon be looking at 100,000 cases a day, but argues that hospitalisation and death numbers are what matter more than anything.

Unfortunately, he will not say what figures he expects or would tolerate. The link between infection and serious illness or death has been much weakened, but not broken. Vaccination rates vary widely; in some areas, fewer than 30% have received two doses. On Thursday, the UK reported weekly rises of more than 50% in Covid hospital admissions and deaths – both of which lag rises in cases – to 456 and 35 respectively. The government’s chief medical adviser, Prof Chris Whitty, has said that we are likely to see a significant increase in long Covid; experts fear that huge numbers could be affected. Though the government talks of personal responsibility, there can be no responsibility without choice. For too many, danger is being imposed upon them. Vaccines are widely available, and people can still cover their faces.

But masks are better at protecting people from the wearer than protecting the wearer. Young workers on public transport or in shops, not yet able to get a second jab, will be exposed to the virus by customers who choose not to wear masks. They surely need and deserve protection. Children are currently unable to be vaccinated. The immunocompromised are less protected by vaccines and more likely to become seriously ill if they contract Covid. Reportedly, the department of health will be issuing new guidance for the immunosuppressed and clinically very vulnerable. But while support for shielders is needed, confining them to quarters indefinitely is hardly a liberation.

Nor is there much choice for exhausted NHS staff who face a soaring workload again, or for patients whose operations are being cancelled because hospitals are treating growing numbers of Covid patients or staff are having to self-isolate. If anything, the authors of the Lancet letter are too generous in describing this as “a dangerous and unethical experiment”: that terminology suggests a degree of scientific rigour and concern. Instead, this is a political wager, in which large parts of the population are not players but gambling chips.

“I have not met a single vaccinated child or parent who has been adequately informed and who then understand the risks of this vaccine or its benefits.”

Canada Cracks Down On Doctors Who Warn Of Covid-19 Vaccines Risks (JTN)

Canadian doctors are facing professional repercussions for sharing their concerns about COVID-19 vaccines, specifically their emergency use authorization status and safety for children. The University of Saskatchewan removed Francis Christian, a clinical professor of surgery, from his faculty and administrative responsibilities days after he hosted a press conference about “the risks of mRNA vaccines to children” and alternatives to vaccination, including use of the drug ivermectin. The Saskatchewan Health Authority also said it was terminating Christian’s contract Sept. 21, after the required 90-day notice, for his “conspiracy theories” on COVID-19 vaccines. He is not “committed to fact-based, scientifically driven public messaging,” the provincial agency told the Saskatoon StarPhoenix.

Christian endangers lives by “potentially discouraging uptake on life-saving vaccines.” Christian opened the June 17 press conference with an explicit disclaimer that he was not representing the university or the provincial agency, and emphasized he was “very pro-vaccine” in general. “The principle of informed consent is being consistently violated in this province for the mRNA vaccine for our kids,” for whom there is no “emergency” justifying experimental COVID-19 vaccines, he said. “I have not met a single vaccinated child or parent who has been adequately informed and who then understand the risks of this vaccine or its benefits.”

Christian said nearly 6,000 deaths have been associated with mRNA vaccines in the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. Echoing arguments by other medical experts, he said such associations “in any other drug or vaccine … would have been sufficient to stop the whole program” to allow for reevaluation. “Tomorrow the CDC is meeting in emergency session to discuss this issue” of heightened risk for myocarditis among young COVID-19 vaccine recipients, he said, and “there is a good likelihood that they too will call for a pause in vaccinating our kids.” The U.S. FDA added heart-inflammation warnings to two vaccines several days later.

Can they fake negative tests as well? Asking for a friend.

How Some Teens are Faking Positive Covid-19 Tests (GR)

A new study released on Monday suggests that teenagers are using social media to share information on faking covid-19 tests in order to get a positive result. Since July 1, videos of young people sharing information on how to trick rapid at-home covid tests (lateral flow tests) into producing positive results using soda drinks have gone viral. This has prompted researchers at the University of Liverpool to look into whether there is any validity to the claim that artificial sweeteners used in sodas can change negative coronavirus results into positive ones. The results of their study, which is still awaiting peer review, were submitted to medRxiv on Monday. The videos of children faking positive covid-19 test results have gone particularly viral in the UK, where a single case of coronavirus in a school can often lead to the whole grade of the person diagnosed needing to isolate at home.

In the UK, schools have mandated students test themselves for the coronavirus twice weekly, in a move similar to that enacted by the Greek government. Some teens have decided that sham positive results are a good thing, as it allows them and their friends to skip school for around ten days and hang out instead. However, this can have a devastating effect on learning, as students miss out on school for days because of false information. Videos are continually being uploaded to social media sites with the hashtag “#fakecovidtest,” showing children putting different liquids on rapid antigen tests in an attempt to produce a positive result. The study by University of Liverpool researchers showed that soda drinks could be used to fake rapid covid-19 tests.

The researchers first ruled out the significance of artificial sweetener, as four different kinds of artificial sweetener and spring water produced negative results on the test swabs. However, when the researchers went to test sodas, the results became a bit more concerning. Ten out of fourteen sodas tested were able to produce positive or weakly positive results. However, the researchers have had a hard time identifying what ingredient produces this reaction, as there seems to be no apparent link between the test results and the soft drinks’ ingredients.

One shut down after another. Not a good sign at all.

Wells Fargo Shuts Down All Personal Lines Of Credit (CNBC)

Wells Fargo is ending a popular consumer lending product, angering some of its customers, CNBC has learned. The bank is shutting down all existing personal lines of credit in coming weeks and no longer offers the product, according to customer letters reviewed by CNBC. The revolving credit lines, which typically let users borrow $3,000 to $100,000, were pitched as a way to consolidate higher-interest credit card debt, pay for home renovations or avoid overdraft fees on linked checking accounts. “Wells Fargo recently reviewed its product offerings and decided to discontinue offering new Personal and Portfolio line of credit accounts and close all existing accounts,” the bank said in the six-page letter. The move would let the bank focus on credit cards and personal loans, it said.

Wells Fargo CEO Charles Scharf has been forced to make difficult decisions during the coronavirus pandemic, offloading assets and deposits and stepping back from some products because of limitations imposed by the Federal Reserve. In 2018, the Fed barred Wells Fargo from growing its balance sheet until it fixes compliance shortcomings revealed by the bank’s fake accounts scandal. The asset cap has ultimately cost the bank billions of dollars in lost earnings, based on the balance sheet growth of rivals including JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America over the past three years, analysts have said. It has also affected Wells Fargo’s customers: Last year, the lender told staff it was halting all new home equity lines of credit, CNBC reported. Months later, the bank also withdrew from a segment of the auto lending business.

With its latest move, Wells Fargo warned customers that the account closures “may have an impact on your credit score,” according to a frequently asked questions segment of the letter. Another part of the FAQ asserted that the account closures couldn’t be reviewed or reversed: “We apologize for the inconvenience this Line of Credit closure will cause,” the bank said. “The account closure is final.”

Trump Announces Class Action Lawsuit Against Twitter, Facebook & Google (HE)

Trump is suing Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for violating his First Amendment rights. “Today, in conjunction with the America First Policy Institute, I’m filing as the lead class representative a class action lawsuit against Facebook, Google and Twitter,” Trump said. “Our case will prove this censorship unlawful.” “We’re demanding an end to the shadowbanning, a stop to the silencing, and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing and canceling that you know so well,” he added.

The lawsuits, filed in the Southern District of Florida, also call for the court to strike down Section 230, a decades-old Internet law that protects tech companies from lawsuits over content moderation decisions, per the New York Times. The suits seek unspecified punitive damages. The announcement came during a morning press conference at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster, where he was joined by Linda McMahon and Brooke Rollins of the America First Policy Institute, per the Tennessee Star. Trump is bringing the lawsuit on behalf of not only himself, but other Americans whose First Amendment rights were violated by the Big Tech conglomerate. “We are going to hold Big Tech very accountable,” he said.

Trump Says Hunter Biden Is Worse Than Al Capone (DM)

Former President Donald Trump said Wednesday there was more ‘criminal activity’ on Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop than mobster Al Capone ever carried out. Trump commented on what he termed the ‘laptop from hell’ as he announced his lawsuit against Facebook and big tech. He used language that suggested he may have seen the laptop, although he didn’t specify if he was referring to media reports on its contents. ‘The laptop from hell,’ Trump termed it. ‘You look at that thing, there’s more criminal activity on that laptop than Al Capone had if he ever had a laptop,’ the former president said. The tech-averse Trump then riffed: ‘We’d like to give Al Capone one, but he was a baby compared to what I was able to see.’

The laptop purportedly once owned by the president’s son has produced a series of revelations about Hunter Biden’s convoluted family sagas and international business deals. DailyMail.com consulted computer forensics experts who vouched for its authenticity. The New York Post reported on some of its email contents weeks before the election, reporting that it was dropped off at a Delaware repair shop in 2019 and never picked up. Recent stories unearthed from the laptop appear to show Hunter paying his father’s AT&T bill, saying prostitutes should unionize, as well as information on the family’s painful struggles with addiction. Longtime Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, whose apartment was raided by the FBI in April, said agents refused to take hard drives he said were Hunter’s during the search.

[..] Trump brought up the laptop while complaining about probes of him he terms witch hunts. ‘That’s what happened with Russia, that’s what happened with Ukraine,’ he said, before pivoting to Hunter. He invoked Capone, the Chicago mobster famously sentenced to 11 years on tax charges, days after longtime Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg was indicted on tax fraud charges over $1.7 million in perks and benefits prosecutors say he did not disclose.

The White House ensures secrecy for the buyers? That’s in their job description?

Hunter Biden Art Show Sparks Ethics Concerns (NYP)

Government ethics watchdogs and art critics alike are voicing their concerns as first son Hunter Biden prepares for his first solo art exhibition this fall — where paintings from the former lawyer and lobbyist are expected to fetch between $75,000 and $500,000 and buyers will remain anonymous. “The whole thing is a really bad idea,” Richard Painter, chief ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush, told the Washington Post. “The initial reaction a lot of people are going to have is that he’s capitalizing on being the son of a president and wants people to give him a lot of money. I mean, those are awfully high prices.” Walter Shaub, who led the Office of Government Ethics under President Barack Obama, told the paper that the art buyers having their identities protected created a host of problems.

“Because we don’t know who is paying for this art and we don’t know for sure that [Hunter Biden] knows, we have no way of monitoring whether people are buying access to the White House,” he said. “What these people are paying for is Hunter Biden’s last name.” Painter also referenced the issue of anonymity, noting that foreign governments or lobbyists could buy the art through intermediaries in an effort to curry favor with the Biden White House. President Biden’s 51-year-old son is putting the finishing touches on the 15 paintings that will comprise his first solo exhibition, which is scheduled to open in October at the Georges Berges’ Gallery in Soho, with a private viewing for VIP collectors in Los Angeles in September. Speaking to The Post late last month, Berges, 45, who said he discovered Biden after being introduced by a “serious” Los Angeles-based collector, admitted he was skeptical of the president’s son’s artistic ability.

“A lot of people say they can paint and do sculpture, but what I was concerned about was whether Hunter’s work would be authentic,” the gallery owner said. Berges, who represents a roster of international artists, spent three years helping Biden, who is self-taught, take his abstract expressionist painting from a hobby that occupied “about 20 percent of his time” to a full-time job that saw Biden spend the last two and a half years holed up in his home studio on a hillside in Los Angeles following a “regimented” routine. “What interested me was whether the work was going to be honest — something that was really true to him and his journey,” Berges said. “But as soon as I met him, I had a real connection with him and I felt I could work with him.”

UK High Court Grants US Permission for Appeal in Assange Extradition Case (CD)

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s legal team said Wednesday that the United Kingdom’s High Court had granted permission to the U.S. government to appeal an earlier decision that blocked Assange’s extradition The court reportedly granted the appeal “on a limited basis” and on “narrow, technical grounds,” and did not set a date for a future court hearing. The ruling led to intensified calls by Assange’s supporters for his release from Her Majesty’s Prison Belmarsh, where he has been held for more than two years following seven years in isolation at the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he claimed asylum. The High Court’s decision “means he is still at risk of extradition where he faces a 175-year prison sentence and…is certain to lose his life if he is extradited,” said Stella Moris, Assange’s partner.

District Judge Vanessa Baraister ruled at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in January that Assange should not be extradited to the U.S., where the government is pursuing Espionage Act charges against him for his publication of military and diplomatic documents, on the grounds that Assange was at “substantial” risk for committing suicide in the “harsh conditions” of the U.S. prison system. Baraister’s ruling led to calls for the U.S. to end its pursuit of Assange—which has been called a threat to press freedom all over the world by international rights groups including Amnesty International, Reporters Without Borders, and the Freedom of the Press Foundation—but U.K. authorities continued his detention at Belmarsh pending the Biden administration’s appeal.

    Well, I guess it’s a good day. Journalists cried, melted down, experienced, “trauma” and were ridiculed like little girls yesterday. And the FBI. Thanks to Vice and Lego. Cheer up, Brian. At least clown world is entertaining. Everyone’s a victim and no one works! Leftist Paradise.

    They’ve been cheated out of mandatory vaccinations and there’s no government run healthcare.
    And Wells Fargo may be collapsing. Can’t say they’re the most corrupt bank, with HS “Drug pushing Opium Wars” BC and Sachs/Morgan in the running. But since they’ve paid billions for years for consumer-based fraud with no license issues and no jail, could still be a day to celebrate. If it collapses the banking system and petrodollar, so much the better, the biggest engines of war and poverty the universe has ever seen.

    Speaking of war and poverty, Andy’s got both:

    Speaking of mass murderers:
    “Convicted Murderer Wins Election to Office in D.C. from Behind Bars”

    I’m in favor: if he killed only one guy he’s less of a murderer than everybody else there.

    Like this:
    “Australia Wrongly Injects 163 Children with Wrong Experimental Vaccine” “I really do not know when people will STOP trusting government bureaucrats.” –Armstrong

    What will it take? Murder my children? That’s okay! Daddy knows best. –Battered wives anonymous.

    Open VERS? Harvard says 1% of vaccine problems are reported. Official science. What’s 1,222 Million x 100? Let’s be generous and skip down to 7,000 official mRNA deaths. x100 = 700,000 official, unnecessary, intentional experimental drug trial deaths, more than COVID itself.

    The end. Oh and should we add the UK’s elderly-murdering drug cocktail hidden by these numbers?
    The drug, alcohol and 200% increased youth suicides in these numbers? The soon-to-be Hoovervilles and Joad families on the road as rents and foreclosures are reinstated? Must be a good thing. BlackRock buys all trillion in houses with free 0% money, you own nothing and are helpless serfs, and best of all, sell your daughters accidentally or on purpose to Epstein, Weinstein, and Weiner. I mean, death, rape, despair, nobody working, what’s not to like?

    “‘Absolutely Government’s Business’ to Know Who in US Hasn’t Been Jabbed (Fox)”

    Yeah, I remember that article in the Constitution giving all medical authority to the government. Oh wait: it’s SPECIFICALLY PROHIBITED. And ILLEGAL. Like almost everything else they do. Thank God, or you can see what they would be up to here. The federal have zero jurisdiction, the CDC is an advisory body, and the Supreme Court is illiterate and hasn’t upheld the law in 100 years.

    Medical things are private, but the government would keep them “private” (except for the constant leaks of all medical records and all children’s addresses, like the UK) and get around HIPAA in that way. I think they SHOULD go door to door. It would be f’n HILARIOUS. They’d be tarred and feathered somewhere by somebody before too long and be taken out of their air-tight fart-sniffing bubble. I’d print out a copy of the Nuremburg for them and ask for their warrant. Hahahahaha. Making them cry on my lawn would be the best day of my life! Then more productively they can go back to their hotel, sit in the dark and say, “Are we the baddies?” YES! The ones that attack questions, burn books, suppress speech, attack self-defense, steal money, divide people by groups, and kill thousands ARE the baddies. But maybe it took being on my lawn to realize it. Hey, is going door-to-door “intimidation”? I heard it was.

    But they won’t. 1) that would require work. 2) They would fail and they know it, and are blustering and bluffing as always: they need you to CHOOSE compliance. BECAUSE THEY ARE TINY AND HELPLESS. They haven’t got the resources to enforce 1/1,000th of their commands. Hey, didn’t MLK show this back with Birmingham? The point was to overwhelm courts and prisons? Now if you’re a protester and arrested, you cry and seek therapy. Back with MLK and real men, that was the whole POINT, to lay your body and life down to prove you were the stronger and better, would sacrifice your blood for the moral right.

    “Feds Dispute Pfizer on Need for a Covid Booster Shot (JTN)

    1) Doesn’t work on any variants. 2) doesn’t last for even 6 months. Vaccines don’t work. I’m not making this up: what else could anyone conclude?

    So many diseases that I deal with … don’t have solutions.”

    And this one doesn’t either, as your vaccine doesn’t work. According to you. So he then says what?

    we have a vaccine that’s highly, highly effective.”

    Highly effective at killing 700,000 new people, you mean.

    “It’s almost like it’s going to be two Americas,”

    Yes, and everyplace you liked, that did what you said, were the WORST places on earth. Everybody who ignored you had better outcomes. Conclusion? “No it isn’t. I can’t hear you over the sound of how awesome my farts are.” Tony, Tony. I’m safer in CALCUTTA than in your office. I’m safer in BARUNDI. I’m safer in Sudan and the Congo. You want to stop jabbering on about being a “expert” and your awesome now? You’re the world’s greatest failure. You’re traveling beyond the rarefied air set by Bush and Cheney, and murdered almost as many. Just as pre-meditated and on purpose.

    The health secretary, Sajid Javid, concedes we could soon be looking at 100,000 cases a day,”

    Is this the same health secretary that said that three months ago, before cases dropped to zero? Friends with the CDC head, crying about imminent medical collapse on national TV before every state that opened had zero effect? Whoops! “No it isn’t.” It’s still dangerous. Texas is still worse than NJ, except in the real world and the official numbers.

    Canada Cracks Down On Doctors Who Warn Of Covid-19 Vaccines Risks (JTN)”

    “Canada punishes doctors who perform required medicine.” Got it. Thank God for national health care so there’s no alternative to deliberately bad, perhaps murderous, certainly pro-war-crimes government.

    Hey, read on how Weimar national health care was the real genesis for the later concentration camps and mass-genocide. It’s a hoot. …First they came for the faggots and retards… Then they came for the gypsies and communists. Then they came for anyone who didn’t sacrifice their children to be murdered for Hitler’s army. Anyone who stood for discussion, democracy, or books. Anyone who harbored self-defense. And they used the national health care to get it all done, that’s why they want it so bad. Yes, I’m trying to offend you so you’ll hate me so much you’ll actually click and read to disprove me. I’d rather be hated with you informed than vice versa as I try to save your life and my country.

    “there seems to be no apparent link between the test results and the soft drinks’ ingredients.”

    Duh. That’s because the tests themselves don’t work. Strangely, every world leader that pointed out the tests on a goat or a papaya are dead now, ending with Haiti yesterday. I think it’s a coincidence.

    Hunter’s laptop: “No it isn’t.” Problem solved! I can’t prove it if I never look!

    Fauci: “Get over it. Just get over this political statement.”

    Said while appearing under a banner reading Republicans Against Public Health and talking to some bobblehead MSM pr mouthpiece for the Democrats/Wokes/Progressives/Liberals or whatever the hell they are. Kinda priceless.

    How does this jackass fool aka lutum lapides sacculi, still have a job? What happened to the information tying him to gain of function research? Where has all of that gone?

    Into the same “nothing matters, anything goes” hole that swallowed Hunter Biden’s depravities, Cuomo’s harassment accusations, Joe Biden’s mental health questions, voting fraud, etc.etc etc etc and many more etc’s , back to the financial crisis and zero accountability for that mess, etc. It makes one weary. It truly does.

    Fauci is the classic example of a low level, low intelligence career bureaucrat who suddenly has a bright light shone on his molding, useless self and is milking it for all its worth. Send him back to his desk in the basement.


    “Fiji’s government has announced it will make Covid-19 vaccinations a mandatory condition of work for civil servants and staff in the private sector, with some people liable to lose their jobs if they do not comply.”

    Here is a summary of UK Yellow Card ADR reports for vaccines for the last 10 years.

    Average # of reports per year = 3,039; deaths = 8.

    Up to 21st June COVID reports = 298,081 (98 times higher); deaths = 1,403 (169 times higher).

    Can people STILL not see what’s happening?? I give up.

    “Daily Covid cases have soared by 85 per cent in vaccinated Brits in one week, data reveals.
    Around 11,000 people are falling sick with the virus each day compared with 6,000 a week ago.”




    absolute galore

    re: “Fiji’s government has announced it will make Covid-19 vaccinations a mandatory condition of work for civil servants and staff in the private sector, with some people liable to lose their jobs if they do not comply.”

    In the U.S., they are–so far–leaving it up to the private companies to exert that kind of pressure. For example, a friend of mine owns a restaurant/bar. The cook does not want to get jabbed, so unlike everyone else, he must wear a mask. My friend is unhappy because if the guy gets sick, he must shut down his restaurant for minimum 2 weeks.

    It’s this kind of regulation, entirely not base on “science,” that ostracizes a segment of the population, makes it okay to pressure and discriminate against them. Free choice my ass. Once they push through full approval (based on science, natch) it will get 10x worse.


    You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink.

    You can lead a sheeple to logic but you can’t make them think.

    The study of propaganda pioneered by Bernays and Goebbels still works like charm.

    A good hundred years later.

    Goebbels studied every syllable and publication Bernays ever uttered, and thought he was a genius, but kept this fact hidden from those around him because Bernays was Jewish.

    Talk about irony. More ‘coincidence theory’.

    Bernays gold nugget was that he discovered how to make people buy something they didn’t need.

    A jackpot for politicians and despots too.

    And now a jackpot for medical tyranny and the Big Pharma Mafia.

    A handful of hedge funds own vast swaths of critical communication infrastructure and financial instruments using ‘interlocking directorates’.

    Same people sitting on multiple boards voting in sync.

    Those hedge funds can buy and sell clowns like Gates and Soros any time they want.

    Trump’s class action against the Tech Mafia is filed in Florida on purpose.

    That Florida jurisdiction is under the control of Clarence Thomas who can theoretically issue a restraining order against Facebook et al to stop censoring content without even consulting the other Supreme Court judges.

    The class action is also asking for damages for lost channel income from the censoring.

    That would be the tremendous amount of lost income for ten of thousands of censored bloggers and podcasters over years.

    Clarence Thomas probably remembers how the MSM Presstitutes Royally Phucked him over.

    I wonder if he will take that into consideration.

    Mr. House

    This gentlemans predictions have been way more accurate the past year then any from the MSM or the “left”.


    So what will the next crisis be? Time to finish the job and crash the dollar folks, covid has been covering that up. They’ve been tightening the screws for the past year and a half, are we ready for the rug to be pulled out from under us?


    Yeah – it’s getting personal now. I got the bullied today by a friend who told me I’ll get erectile dysfunction if I don’t take the jab. Told me he was a scientist and that I was being silly and generally very selfish. But I rose on my high-horse filled with righteous anger (which is never righteous – actually I was EGO) and told him I thought it was irresponsible and immoral to get vaccinated. He was like What?! I explained the reasons – Warlords own major stakes in tech and pharma platforms and I also said I didn’t like being hassled about my medical status. I don’t stop friends on the street and ask if they have Herpes or wear condoms for protection.
    It is social engineering and propaganda man.
    People thought I was an idiot living off-grid and building a straw bale house and growing my own food too. They always called me scrawny too. Stuff them. My personality is not Alpha but when an Alpha comes pushing me around then I will only take so many punches. The line is drawn. I am punching back. I mean I’m out here with my family doing my thing treading lightly but it’s never enough. They don’t know how to stop HELPING!

    Mr. House

    “At this point we have to ask ourselves, “Who does the federal government actually represent when they do these things?” Do they represent us? Or do they represent special interests, such as globalists and career Marxists? Are they tearing away our freedoms at record pace for our benefit, or the benefit of people with malicious intentions? If they are acting in the interests of evil people, then isn’t rebellion inevitable? And who is to blame for that inevitable conflagration? Them, or us?”


    I sent a link to my friend for Trialsitenews and this was the response:
    RNA is not DNA. DNA uses and builds RNA. Vaccines are neither chemotherapy nor gene therapy. One is simply a kind of poison to do something, the other a (possibly promising but not actually working too well) way to change damaged or malfunctioning cells by giving them altered instruction for the production of proteins (mainly).
    Lots of unscientific thinking and misunderstanding of basics.

    I guess I’ll go with my gut feelings on this one and just let myself be free of the good opinions of other people.

    Or crash the economy and call in all those debts they’ve been encouraging everyone to take on since 08, because they’d never do anything to purposefully hurt you 😉

    What are Interleukin inhibitors?

    Interleukin inhibitors are immunosuppressive agents which inhibit the action of interleukins. Interleukins are a group of cytokines which are synthesized by lymphocytes, monocytes, macrophages, and certain other cells. They function especially in regulation of the immune system.

    What is Dupixent?
    Dupixent (dupilumab) is used to treat moderate-to-severe eczema (atopic dermatitis) that cannot be controlled with topical medicines applied to the skin. Dupixent is used for eczema in adults and children at least 6 years old.

    Dupixent is also used together with other medications to treat moderate-to-severe asthma that is not controlled with other asthma medicines. It is used for asthma in adults and children at least 12 years old.

    Dupixent is used only in adults to treat a condition called chronic rhinosinusitis (long-term sinus inflammation) that is associated with nasal polyps.

    I wonder the mechanisms to call in the debts? Slowly slowly works better with wealth transfer so I think they will still have interest in keeping the operating system working for as long as possible. I feel like the slow burn of tyranny by using the people against themselves is a better play. It is a full shit-show out there right now and feels like collapse in 2x speed.

    Mr. House

    Last rant – it’s nearly 1 am and the kids will wake me in some hours…
    GMO corn and soy (and others) are still viable life forms – in that they grow and are stock – not units of production as such but are part of the harvest. They interact with soil sun and water and fertilizer and just do their thing being crops in the sun. Imagine a world where the necessary inputs in a commercial system (people)- needed constant genetic tweaks ($$$), were weak and needed huge inputs to keep healthy (like the antibiotics dumped into the ocean pens for Salmon production etc) and, they also produced infertile or shitty seed (progeny) – thus allowing for genetic control of that aspect. Leave nothing to nature and everything to science and you will get heaps of control and heaps of money – until you don’t, and the second law of thermodynamics just crashes down.
    I really need to meditate.


    “The vaccines” are authorized because of an emergency – “The pandemic”.
    When will the pandemic be declared over?

    http http://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/they-cant-even-keep-lies-straight-fda-cdc-condradict-pfizer-claim-theres-no-need-booster

    Just hours after Pfizer and its partner BioNTech announced their plan to seek federal authorization to market a “booster” jab that they said would provide better protection against COVID variants like Delta, the FDA and CDC issued a joint statement contradicting Pfizer by claiming that there’s no evidence that booster vaccines will be necessary.

    The two federal entities said the US is “fortunate to have highly effective vaccines that are widely available for those 12 and up” and “Americans who have been fully vaccinated do not need a booster shot at this time.”

    I think that the authors of the book “What really makes you ill” which took them 10 years to research
    and was written before covid are giving us best answers about health. Here is an article from their website about covid, there is more there if interested:

    COVID: An Overview

    Doc Robinson

    Covid cases in the UK may be going up, but what about deaths? The latest weekly report from the UK government says “Deaths involving COVID-19 increased slightly in the UK in Week 25.” “Slightly” means two more deaths than the prior week (118 deaths vs. 116). These Covid death numbers are so small that they haven’t even been visible on this graph for the past 6 weeks.

    Fauci: “Get over it. Just get over this political statement.”

    Said while appearing under a banner reading Republicans Against Public Health

    I’m glad somebody else noticed this. These pricks are leveraging off all the division and hatred created by their anti-Trump campaign by associating vaccine hesitancy with Trump supporters. But as I’ve said before, this whole pandemic psyop took on political overtones within weeks of the outbreak. Now they are just coming right out with it, banners and all. No more inuendo: “Stop making this about politics! That’s our job! Just follow the science, which just so happens to be our job too. In other words, do what we say, or else we’ll sic our heavily indoctrinated door-to-door Maoist hordes no you.”

    Mr. House

    “These pricks are leveraging off all the division and hatred created by their anti-Trump campaign by associating vaccine hesitancy with Trump supporters.”

    But Biden got he most votes ever, so logic would state that those same people would be jabbed (don’t call it a vaccine) yet only 47% is fully jabbed. Something doesn’t add up 😉

    Mr. House

    Are we waiting on mail in jabs?


    Awaited Ivermectin Review Is Out
    — Findings are positive, but critics still want a randomized controlled trial


    And the bottom line is

    Of course, rolling out vaccination as quickly and widespread as possible would negate the need to use ivermectin as a treatment, so big picture, vaccines are the better solution.

    You can’t make this stuff up.


    I keep saying “They’re trying to kill us”.
    Now, after watching “The Minds of Men” (2018), and reading Webb’s https://unlimitedhangout.com/2021/06/investigative-reports/a-leap-toward-humanitys-destruction/, and listening to her interviews (the Fuelmich interview- TAE July 8), I now see that killing us would be the optimistic outcome. The future envisioned is much, much, much darker than that.
    And they don’t have to succeed- it will be enough to fly under the radar. They want secret labs. They want guinea pigs. Have you seen what they do to guinea pigs (and monkeys and rats and cats and dogs…)? They want human guinea pigs.
    What happens to people who disappear?
    What can they do to people who are declared mentally or physically defective? What rights did [do] folks in care homes have?
    That “satan” part of the plot (ancient “knowledge”) is starting to look pretty realistic.

    I don’t believe in voodoo, but it matters, dear, that “they” do.

    I wrote this before I read anything- I have some catching up to do.

“Propaganda is the executive arm of the invisible government,” wrote Edward Bernays, the father of modern propaganda.

    Mark Crispin Miller, professor of Media Studies at New York University, discusses the propaganda onslaught that defined the year 2020, when what was dismissed one week is confirmed the next, and why questioning official narratives “necessarily means taking ‘conspiracy theory’ seriously.”
