Update from the CDC:








“FDA approval is checkmate for Pfizer.”

Don’t miss this. Start at about 3:40min. Watch to the end.

If only half of what she says is true, Pfizer is in enormous trouble. And so is the FDA; they knew too.

Pfizer has two weeks to list all ingredients in its vaccine. Graphene oxide makes its comeback.

“Unvaccinated L.A. County residents [are] 5 times more likely to get COVID, 29 times more likely to be hospitalized.”

Here’s where those numbers come from.

CDC Counts People Dying Within 14 Days of Jab as “Unvaccinated” (GR)

Citing the Los Angeles County Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report released on Tuesday, even local news promoted the claim that “Unvaccinated L.A. County residents [are] 5 times more likely to get COVID, 29 times more likely to be hospitalized.” Looking at a screenshot of the CDC release, one can observe the definitions for what they consider “fully vaccinated,” “partially vaccinated,” or “unvaccinated.” According to the chart, “unvaccinated <14 days receipt of the first dose of a 2-dose series or 1 dose of the single-dose vaccine or if no vaccination registry data were available. This means if someone was hospitalized, admitted to ICU, required mechanical ventilation or died within two weeks of getting the jab they are being counted as “unvaccinated.”

Unfortunately, because the data is not specific enough, we don’t know how many truly unvaccinated people were hospitalized or died of Covid in Los Angeles County from May to late July. The entire report can basically be tossed into the trash thanks to the inclusion of the recently vaccinated in the unvaccinated category. This intentionally misleading data is now being used to infringe on the rights of the people of California and across the entire United States as vaccine mandates and passports are being rolled out nationwide.

“.. the dosing they used, and the original titers, concealed the decay below effective levels which was not being tested for..”

Israel Cracks The Code: Jabs Don’t Work (Denninger)

If you recall early on before the jabs were “released” under EUA I pointed out that some of the early study work had odd results that I could not reasonably explain a purpose to, and they bothered me a lot. One of the most-glaring was the wildly higher antibody titers produced by them as opposed to natural infection. I mused at the time that this could easily be explained by the truncation (or simply ignorance of) the usual dose-ranging studies that are done on all drugs; those require time, of course, and when you’re after Warp Speed time is something you don’t have. But now it appears that Pfizer may have known there was a problem — they may not have known how serious it was, but they may well have known it existed and may have deliberately set the dosing to try to hide it. And, as it turns out, that wasn’t the only problem.

“In vaccinated subjects, antibody titers decreased by up to 40% each subsequent month while in convalescents they decreased by less than 5% per month. Six months after BNT162b2 vaccination 16.1% subjects had antibody levels below the seropositivity threshold of <50 AU/mL, while only 10.8% of convalescent patients were below <50 AU/mL threshold after 9 months from SARS-CoV-2 infection.” In other words the dosing they used, and the original titers, concealed the decay below effective levels which was not being tested for but would have shown up in infections among vaccinated people had the original level been lower. That’s bad; the question now becomes did Pfizer know this and do it deliberately, and if not, what is the logical explanation for the dosing used? Why not set dosing roughly identical to natural infection? Simple: If they did that before the four months of the study ran a crap-ton of people would have gotten infected since the antibody titer would have worn off.

It gets worse: “In our study, we show that following vaccination, the levels of anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies decrease rapidly, indicating that BMPCs may not be created adequately and therefore anti-SARS-CoV-2 humoral immunity might be transient (Ibarrondo et al., 2020; Seow et al., 2020).” If there is little or no B-cell recall then the vaccine is a failure as it cannot stimulate durable immunity at all. That is, the jabs are basically the same (via a different mechanism) to receiving monoclonal antibodies if you get infected; yes, you have an antibody titer but the jabs fail to train your immune system to recognize the infection in the future. As that titer wanes the protection becomes increasingly worthless and, since we know mutational binding changes are occurring the potential for vaccine-caused harm by potentiating infections remains a distinct possibility as that occurs.

Natural Immunity 13x More Effective Than Vaccines At Stopping Delta (ZH)

Dr. Anthony Fauci and the rest of President Biden’s COVID advisors have been proven wrong about “the science” of COVID vaccines yet again. After telling Americans that vaccines offer better protection than natural infection, a new study out of Israel suggests the opposite is true: natural infection offers a much better shield against the delta variant than vaccines. The study was described by Bloomberg as “the largest real-world analysis comparing natural immunity – gained from an earlier infection – to the protection provided by one of the most potent vaccines currently in use.” A few days ago, we noted how remarkable it was that the mainstream press was finally giving voice to scientists to criticize President Biden’s push to start doling out booster jabs. Well, this study further questions the credibility of relying on vaccines, given that the study showed that the vaccinated were ultimately 13x as likely to be infected as those who were infected previously, and 27x more likely to be symptomatic.

Alex Berenson, a science journalist who has repeatedly questioned the efficacy of vaccines and masks at preventing COVID, touted the study as enough to “end any debate over vaccines v natural immunity.” Here’s an excerpt from a report by Science Magazine: “The new analysis relies on the database of Maccabi Healthcare Services, which enrolls about 2.5 million Israelis. The study, led by Tal Patalon and Sivan Gazit at KSM, the system’s research and innovation arm, found in two analyses that people who were vaccinated in January and February were, in June, July, and the first half of August, six to 13 times more likely to get infected than unvaccinated people who were previously infected with the coronavirus. In one analysis, comparing more than 32,000 people in the health system, the risk of developing symptomatic COVID-19 was 27 times higher among the vaccinated, and the risk of hospitalization eight times higher.”

This time, the data leave little doubt that natural infection truly is the better option for protection against the delta variant, despite the fact that the US won’t acknowledge the already infected as having antibodies protecting them from the virus. As the first country to achieve widepsread coverage by the vaccine, Israel is now in an unthinkable situation: daily case numbers have reached new record levels as the delta variant penetrates the vaccines’ protection like a hot knife slicing through butter.

Because of “record high vaccination rates”. Oh boy…

Denmark To Scrap All Covid-19 Restrictions (ZH)

Denmark will on September 10th stop classifying Covid-19 as an “illness which is a critical threat to society”, meaning all remaining special pandemic restrictions will expire, The Local reported. In a press release issued on Friday morning, the country’s health minister Magnus Heunicke said that the high level of vaccination in Denmark, particularly among the vulnerable, had radically altered the risks posed by the virus. “The epidemic is under control, we have record high vaccination rates,” he said in a statement. “As a result, on September 10th, we can drop some of the special rules we have had to introduce in the fight against Covid-19.”

September 10th marks the expiry date for that the executive order classifying Covid-19 as a “socially critical illness”, which was passed by the Danish parliament’s Epidemic Committee on March 10th last year. The parties in the centre-right blue bloc, led by the Liberal Party, have already said that they believe that Covid-19 should no longer be classed as a serious threat to society, and the health ministry’s announcement came less than an hour before the ruling Social Democrats were due to discuss the issue with the other parties in the Epidemic Committee. “When it sinks in for the Social Democrat government that they are in a minority, they then come up with better ideas just 45 minutes before the meeting in the Epidemic Committee is starting,” said Sophie Løhde, a member of the committee for the Liberal Party.

Judge Strips Mother Of Parental Rights Over Vaccination Status (Fox32)

A Chicago mother says a Cook County judge has taken away her parental rights after learning that she is not vaccinated against COVID-19. In what all parties agree is a very unusual and perhaps unprecedented step, a judge at Chicago’s Daley Center has stripped Rebecca Firlit of custody because she refuses to get a vaccination shot. “I miss my son more than anything. It’s been very difficult. I haven’t seen him since August 10th,” Firlit told FOX 32 News in an exclusive interview. That’s the day Firlit appeared in court via Zoom along with her ex-husband for a child support hearing involving their 11-year-old son. The two have been divorced for seven years and share custody and parenting time.

She says out of the blue, Cook County Judge James Shapiro asked her whether she had been vaccinated. Firlit told Shapiro she had not because she has had bad reactions to vaccines in the past. Shapiro then ordered that Firlit be stripped of all parenting time with her son until she gets vaccinated. Over the past two weeks, Firlit has been able to talk to her son on the phone and through video calls, but has not seen him in person. “I think that it’s wrong. I think that it’s dividing families. And I think it’s not in my son’s best interest to be away from his mother,” Firlit said.

Firlit is now appealing the court order, saying the judge has no business taking away her parenting rights simply because she’s not vaccinated. “It had nothing to do with what we were talking about. He was placing his views on me. And taking my son away from me,” Firlit said. Annette Fernholz, Firlit’s attorney, says the judge has overstepped his authority. “In this case you have a judge, without any matter before him regarding the parenting time with the child deciding ‘Oh, you’re not vaccinated. You don’t get to see your child until you are vaccinated.’ That kind of exceeds his jurisdiction,” Fernholz said.

US Mandates Vaccinations For Marines (PPundit)

1. SCOOP: Biden Admin is not done putting members of U.S. armed services at risk, mandating U.S. Marines receive first dose vaccinations before WTI (Weapons Tactics Instructions) in a week, ignoring apps for exemptions that include religious and history of Myocarditis. 2. Further, the second dose will be administered during WTI, in a remote location with only field medic attention available to them. Again, this is ordered for those who have known medical conditions that were considered viable causes for exemptions only a week ago. These are all people who had no problem getting vaccinated for scores of other diseases. They were told they would have the ability to obtain waivers and are now facing the choice between risk to personal harm and/or violation of conscience, or professional ruination.

Reading the documents provided to us (of course it’s documented), service members who refuse to take the vaccination will be “dealt with via administrative or disciplinary measures, i.e., AdSep, NJP or court-martial.” There is not enough time for waivers to be issued. Again, the main issue here, which is expected given how these things play out in real life, is that the Biden Admin is claiming there is an accommodation for religious exemption and exemption for certain medical conditions, but in reality is not afforded to them. It’s a Catch 22. If you have a religious exemption, then DoD tells them to apply for it, claims they were allowed. Except, they won’t actually have time for the “Chaplain Interview Checklist” (sound familiar @DeptofDefense?) because they just got orders and the deadline is here.

And honestly, this is what many of them are concerned about. Not for themselves, but for their Battles who they know are seeking waivers for legitimate conditions linked to Pfizer. They are NOT “anti-vaccine”. For those seeking religious exemptions, there is no time for them to get a “Chaplain Interview Checklist” before the “Religious Accommodation Review Board”. Again, sound familiar @DeptofDefense? These service members have been scammed. I thought we had enough of that, this week “And the worse part is, you dont get the vaccine, you don’t go on exercises, you get no job training, you’re kicked out.” I realize most Americans have never served, don’t understand what it means to be in this situation. We lie to them about wars. We lie to them about waivers.

US Special Forces Vets Launch Mission To Get Afghan Allies Out (DM)

A group of American war veterans in Kabul are secretly saving hundreds of Afghan Special Forces troops and their families who helped them in the war but have now been left for dead as the US withdraws from Afghanistan. The group of special op soldiers includes retired Green Berets and SEAL Team commanders who launched the mission, which they are calling Pineapple Express, after one of the Afghan commandos they served with contacted them to say he was on the run from the Taliban. His visa had not been approved when the Taliban took over on August 14 and thousands ran for the airport.

The special ops soldiers first devised a system with US troops at the airport where they sent their comrades to a gate and told them to identify themselves with the password ‘pineapple’ to be put on a plane by the Marines on the ground. Some also showed the troops pictures of pineapples on their phones. After successfully getting hundreds through that way, the special ops teams started going into Kabul, behind enemy lines, to rescue more of their comrades and their families in the cover of darkness. It’s unclear how long they have been in Afghanistan and how they got there but some of those involved spoke to ABC News about the mission on Friday, explaining they simply could not leave their comrades behind.

‘I just want to get my people out,’ said one of the retired troops involved while another said the Afghan allies they were saving had a prouder sense of Democracy than some Americans. Their astonishingly courageous efforts have saved hundreds while Biden and his team have bungled the evacuation mission by haphazardly telling some US citizens and allies to go to the airport while rejecting visas for others and leaving any Americans to fend for themselves. They are one of several ad-hoc volunteer groups on the ground that are frantically trying to save people before time runs out.

The disastrous government rescue mission became even more tragic on Thursday when ISIS bombers targeted the crowds at the airport, slaughtering 170 people with a suicide bomb that also killed 13 US troops. It has since emerged that Biden’s administration also gave a list of Afghan allies’ names to the Taliban in the naïve hope they would then help get them out. Former President Donald Trump called it a ‘kill list’ that all but guaranteed their deaths. The US now one of the only nations still evacuating from Kabul amid increasing threats of another ISIS attack.

“Some of said bigwigs, including the managing parties behind “Joe Biden,” might be cooking up a neat operation in which “Joe Biden” resigns, Ms. Harris gets elevated to POTUS… Ms. Harris appoints Barack Obama vice-president… and then Ms. Harris resigns, making the popular ex-president president again.”

Low and Dark (Kunstler)

His managers installed a “poison pill” named Kamala Harris as his vice-president, and even members of her own party get the vapors at mere fugitive thoughts of her trying to run the country, giggling from one crisis to another. Meanwhile, the veep cut short her tour of Southeast Asia, rushing to aid beleaguered California Governor Gavin Newsom at a rally to fight his recall vote… but then cut short her Newsom rescue mission to fly on to Washington. Electioneering during the greatest hostage crisis in US history probably equals more poor optics. She will presumably spend the days ahead “standing by” on developments, within reach of the Xanax vial — while a claque of party bigwigs importunes her to get rolling on the 25th amendment.

Some of said bigwigs, including the managing parties behind “Joe Biden,” might be cooking up a neat operation in which “Joe Biden” resigns, Ms. Harris gets elevated to POTUS… Ms. Harris appoints Barack Obama vice-president… and then Ms. Harris resigns, making the popular ex-president president again. The 22nd Amendment only prevents presidents from being elected more than twice, not from being appointed by happenstance. Would they dare? Well, why not? They dared to engineer some pretty audacious election hijinks in 2020.

One thing you can count on, the situation has the potential to get a whole lot worse, both for the nation and for “Joe Biden”. Our new Taliban “partners,” assigned to provide security in-and-around Kabul, may prove to be less than steadfast in their duties as hoped. Thursday’s bloodbath hints at their inadequacies. The number of Americans stranded in Afghanistan remains hypothetical, a thousand… six thousand…nobody seems to know. Plus, Gawd knows how many NATO-ally civilian personnel, international NGO workers, and other people of, shall we say, the Western persuasion, remain trapped.

The ISIS suicide bombings made a pretty bold statement, too. If one ventured to say that our new Taliban partners are something less than gentlemen, how would you describe the cadres of Al Qaeda and ISIS? Poor sports? Ruffians? Misogynists? They have the run of Kabul now, the ability to go from door-to-door, rooting Westerners out, something they probably regard as fun. Do you remember from just a few years ago what kinds of things they like to do to their captives? Cut their heads off. (Notice I didn’t say chop.) Roast them in cages. That could start any minute. What then, “Joe Biden”?

When the military turns against politics, throwing away entire careers to do it, you’re in trouble.

Marine Commander Fired For Blasting ‘Inept’ Military Leadership (WND)

A sitting Marine battalion commander was fired Friday after he slammed the “ineptitude” of U.S. military leadership over the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal. Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller said in a video posted on YouTube after the deadly suicide attack Thursday that he was willing to risk his career and his pension — only three years from retirement — to “demand accountability” from top military brass, the Washington Free Beacon reported. “I want to say this very strongly. I have been fighting for 17 years. I am willing to throw it all away to say to my senior leaders: I demand accountability,” said Scheller. In a Facebook post Friday, he announced he had been “relieved for caused based on a lack of trust and confidence.”

In his video, he said he had a close relationship with one of the 13 service members who were killed Thursday in a suicide bombing at a gate at the Hamid Karzai International Airport. He said he is not the only service member who is upset about how the withdrawal has been handled. “The reason people are so upset on social media right now is not because the Marine on the battlefield let someone down. That service member always rose to the occasion and done extraordinary things,” Scheller said. “People are upset because their senior leaders let them down and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability or saying, ‘We messed this up.'”

Scheller, the Free Beacon reported, reacted to an Aug. 18 public letter by Gen. David Berger, commandant of the Marine Corps. Berger attempted to reassure Marines who were expressing their frustration on social media that their service was “meaningful, powerful, and important.” Scheller said the letter missed the point, arguing the withdrawal was a major policy failure from the highest levels of military leadership. He called out Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and the joint chiefs of staff. “I’m not saying we’ve got to be in Afghanistan forever. But I am saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table and say, ‘Hey, it’s a bad idea to evacuate Bagram Airfield, a strategic airbase, before we evacuate everyone’? Did anyone do that? And when you didn’t think to do that, did anyone raise their hand and say, ‘We completely messed this up’?” asked Scheller.

    John Day- is there any chance your people’s clinic could set up a section for those off gov’t/unvaccinated? They need healthcare, too. It’s Texas, right? (Written as a Minnesotan looking keenly at what’s going on in Texas!) By being a “cash only” arm of your clinic it would be untouchable by the feds. And the practitioners don’t have to be vaccinated. And health care needs of those otherwise unfulfilled are fulfilled. Your clinic could use a cash revenue stream, couldn’t it?

    If nothing else- there’s always local politics.


    tdk: quit it with the humor. 😉 Although it’s always very good. lol


    tdk, undoing my dry sense of humor in the earlier comment, don’t ever quit with the humor. We need it. And TAE Summary, too. A laugh is needed these days.

    Most reassuring message from Pfizer CEO Dr. Albert Bourla. He states that a vaccine-resistant COVID variant will “likely” emerge.


    those darned kids

    thanks, upstate. i’m actually quite frustrated. i keep waiting for the humans to evolve, but they just seem to want to go to costco instead.

    tomorrow, i’m going to call up a candidate from a right-wing party to see if he opposes fascism. i hope he’ll say yes.
    it seems the only people near here who want anything to do with freedom are the people who are in favour of everything else i am against.

    but, without freedom ¿how can i tell them they are wrong?

    i do wonder, however, if my being on <scary>THE LIST<more scary> will prevent my being able to vote in the upcoming charade election.

    last time, i put smily faces in the little circles. this time, any port in a storm.


    Everyone: this is not about a freaking vaccine (not exactly … because the vaccine is seriously killing people, but there’s more to it than that …).

    This is about tyranny. STOP THIS NOW. Do not back down.

    Thank you again, Raul, for what you do.


    There are a number of Ivermectin horse pastes that have *other* ingredients in them like anti-biotics etc…

    Don’t use those.

    Also don’t take the whole syringe for a 1200 POUND horse.

    Do some elementary school math.

    Done right it works great.


    where do you live tdk?


    tdk, a couple decades ago I realized that humans were not *evolving* as rapidly as the *technology* we use was *evolving*. Today’s debacle is evidence of this. Hubris. It’s a human foible.

    It’s hard and I struggle with it every day here in NY, and I’m up and down on this believe me, but try not to focus on the people who aren’t even close to understanding. The rest of us are out here. Just need to find each other somehow.

    To repost a link from the other day. Lukas Lion: “you can never quiet the lions”


    No officers especially Marines were fired in Vietnam for opening their mouths instead they said what they thought “We had to destroy the village to save it”. It was the draftees after the Tet Offensive who knew the war was unwinnable who refused orders, got high and fragged officers. Yes, a former Navy Lieutenant John Kerry said: ‘How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?’ but decades later as Secretary of State he was a team member in the campaign to overthrow of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad which failed spectacularly.

    The mistakes are cascading. Starting with ending the draft and off-shoring jobs, the Regan/Thatcher birthed corporate state (the Western Empire) turned PR messaging into big lie propaganda to misinform and hide the truth from Americans since they don’t matter at all to global oligarchs. Professional managers, to advance, must believe the propaganda; breeding utter incompetence and clueless arrogance.

    This has culminated in the failed coronavirus pandemic response. It is very hard to hide swamped emergency rooms and intensive care units, quarantined classrooms — the dead and ill. Yet the USA continues to solely push for-profit mRNA jabs even though deaths are spiking in highly vaccinated Israel. The US military couldn’t depart Kabul without casualties. Even TAE participants sort of disbelieve that the western system is crashing hard. Yes, it is. Regional wildfires, wall of water floods, shortages, and missing workers indicate that the reset button has been pushed. Chaos is coming except for China, New Zealand and Taiwan as long as their governments continue to eradicate the virus.


    Vietnam Vet: “PR messaging into big lie propaganda to misinform and hide the truth from Americans since they don’t matter at all to global oligarchs”



    I saw a hopeful thing last night whilst out on a long-ish bike ride. Part of my route goes through a mid-upper middleclass to ‘in-the-club’ neighborhood, with lots of ‘Old California’ money. So…I’m riding along, climbing a steep hill, and a painted sign catches my eye on the right.

    “Pizza Pickup” was painted at the top of a sheet of plywood with a ‘service window’ cut in, little shelf at the bottom like any good take-out window, and affixed to a fence that was otherwise hidden by ivy. It was facing the street, with easy parking for one car only, and partly hidden by old trees. This is a suburban neighborhood, not zoned for businesses. My thought was ‘Harry Tuttle opened a restaurant chain?!?’ The theory: somebody cooks really good pizzas, shares this info with friends in some way, starts an on-the-sly pizza biz that can evaporate on short notice.


    Here’s a hint about my route: Mount Wilson Toll Road was the downhill leg, and I started on top at 10:30 PM. A distant relative owned the only gas station at the bottom of the Toll Road when it opened. My grandmother was among the unskilled workers polishing the mirror segments for use in the 100in telescope that is the midpoint in an evolution of apparatus culminating in the 200in telescope on the Palomar Mountains. It’s worth the journey to visit, as it’s one of the last ‘artisan’ ironworks, akin to a lovingly-crafted steam locomotive. The road up is…also a very good bike ride!


    My brother, 71 (Moderna March 2021) with no cardiovascular problems, has recently had 2 “small” strokes. Now I’m watching V. So I’ll shut up.

    except to say…
    Weren’t we all to care so much for those who succumbed to the virus? Where is the compassion for those who have succumbed to the “vaccine”?


    my parents: I’m sorry about your brother. People are having “small” strokes (my mother did), having heart attacks, being diagnosed with cancer … the list goes on and on as to potential detrimental health issues that *may* be related to vaccination.

    The *precious narrative* doesn’t want anyone to investigate what could be outcomes from the vaccines. No problem here, just move on. Nearly everyone I care about has been vaccinated. I’m extraordinarily worried about.

    NYT with a barrage of Covid fear stories.( The photo of Wallace shows someone who is definitely overweight.No indication of other co-morbidities,or what kind of Ivermectin protocol he was on.

    Caleb Wallace, a leader of the anti-mask movement in central Texas who became infected with the coronavirus and spent three weeks in an intensive care unit, has died, his wife, Jessica, said on Saturday.

    “Caleb has peacefully passed on. He will forever live in our hearts and minds,” Mrs. Wallace wrote in a post on GoFundMe, where she had been raising money to cover medical costs.

    Mrs. Wallace had said recently that her husband’s condition was declining and that doctors had run out of treatment options. On Saturday, he was to be moved to a hospice at Shannon Medical Center in the city of San Angelo so that his family could say their goodbyes, she said.

    Mrs. Wallace, who is pregnant with the couple’s fourth child, recently told the San Angelo Standard-Times that when her husband first felt ill, he took a mix of vitamin C, zinc, aspirin and ivermectin — a drug typically used to treat parasitic worms in both people and animals that has been touted as a coronavirus treatment but was recently proved to be ineffective against the virus.

    Mr. Wallace, 30, who campaigned against mask mandates and other Covid policies that he saw as government intrusion, lived in San Angelo for most of his life and worked at a company that sells welding equipment. He checked into the Shannon Medical Center on July 30.

    Another post claims that Delta is resulting in more hospitalizations than Alpha in the UK, and that all but 2% of the deaths are among the unvaccinated.

    People who are infected with the highly contagious Delta variant are twice as likely to be hospitalized as those who are infected with the Alpha variant, according to a large new British study.

    The study, published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases journal on Friday, is an analysis of more than 40,000 coronavirus infections in England. It adds to evidence suggesting that Delta may cause more severe illness than other variants do.

    Fewer than 2 percent of the infections occurred in fully vaccinated people, and there was not enough data to draw firm conclusions about hospitalization risks in that group specifically, the researchers said.

    “The main takeaway is that if you have an unvaccinated or only partially vaccinated population, then an outbreak of Delta can lead to a higher burden on hospitals, on health care, than an Alpha outbreak would,” said Anne Presanis, a senior statistician at the University of Cambridge and one of the study’s lead authors.

    The Delta variant, which was first detected in India, is roughly twice as infectious as the original virus and as much as 60 percent more transmissible than the Alpha variant,

    Schoolteacher in California infects half her class:

    An unvaccinated elementary schoolteacher infected with the highly contagious Delta variant spread the virus to half the students in a classroom, seeding an outbreak that eventually infected 26 people, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    The unusually detailed study, which comes as school districts across the country reopen, seems certain to intensify the debate over vaccine mandates in schools. A handful of school districts, including New York City, have already announced vaccine requirements for teachers and staff.

    The classroom outbreak occurred in Marin County, Calif., in May. Neither the school nor the staff members and students involved were identified.

    The teacher first showed symptoms on May 19, but worked for two days before getting tested. During this time, the teacher read aloud, unmasked, to a class of 24 students, despite rules requiring both teachers and students to wear masks indoors.

    All the students were too young for vaccination.

    In that same roundup, at least one sign of sanity:

    Many in the U.K. are flouting pandemic rules even as cases rise.

    LONDON — Nearly 60,000 soccer fans packed London’s Emirates Stadium last Sunday to watch Chelsea outplay Arsenal. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, “Cinderella,” made its glittering debut in the West End after several Covid-related delays. On the subway, where masks are still mandatory, half the riders go barefaced.

    All this at a time when Britain is reporting more than 30,000 new coronavirus cases a day, hospitals are coming under renewed strain, and preliminary data shows that the protection provided by vaccines ebbs several months after the second dose.

    About this data

    Such is the strange new phase of Britain’s pandemic: The public has moved on, even if the virus has not. Given that Britain has been at the vanguard of so many coronavirus developments — from incubating variants to rolling out vaccines — experts say this could be a glimpse into the future for other countries.

    “We don’t seem to care that we have these really high infection rates,” said Tim Spector, a professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London, who has been leading a major study on Covid-19 symptoms. “It looks like we’re just accepting it now — that this is the price of freedom.”

    Update from the CDC: infection fatality – survival rates for Covid-19 per age group – –

    shouldn’t the percentage sign in the 2nd column (fatality rate) be stricken, or alternatively the numericals converted to percentages? Otherwise you’d be comparing apples with oranges. The numbers are still impressive.
    Fatality rate survival rate
    0.00003 = 0.003% 99.997%
    0.0002 = 0.02% 99.98%
    0.005=0.5% 99.5%
    0.054=5.4% 94.6%


    galore: “The public has moved on …. “

    And “… this is the price of freedom”

    Go Britain!!!


    Don’t you feel sorry for all the people getting sick and dying in India

    “The Delta variant, which was first detected in India, is roughly twice as infectious as the original virus and as much as 60 percent more transmissible than the Alpha variant”


    Yikes, showing my age. Who was the bicyclist again?

    those darned kids

    bill7 is the cyclist. methinks.


    upstate, tdk- thanks. The rotten part is that he called me an idiot for saying I wouldn’t be taking the “vaccine”. I don’t feel “I told you so”- I feel rotten. I think- this is why the lockdowns- he and I couldn’t get together where I could fulfill my function as an irritant to the familial social set. It just didn’t work over the telephone, or even miserable zoom.


    he and I couldn’t get together where I could fulfill my function as an irritant to the familial social set.
    That’s my fear as well. I emailed my 80yo dad with the modest Covid PlanB article I posted a day or two back.
    He responded that he agreed with much of it, but couldn;t see that the mask mandates could be dispensed with.
    I replied that (from previous mask studies etc) I thought the mask mandates were essentially a voodoo compliance element and he could achieve as much by tying garlic around his neck or wearing a crucifix.
    it’s hard being in that position of keeping up with the information day-to-day, but then knowing even where to start where someone’s been fully exposed to the cool-aid without any prophylaxis.

    “I know very well that these days you can’t trust nobody but here is what snopes has to say re Karen Kingston: No, the mRNA Vaccines Do Not Contain Graphene Oxide”

    Snopes! Fake News! Conspiracy! Misinformation! Rrrrrrrrrrrradicals! Supremacists! RussiaRussiaRussia!

    Oh wait: Japan just recalled 1.3 Miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiilllllllion doses of Moderna. For what? Having a “contaminant.” What kind, you ask? One that is “Magnetic”. Ooopsie! We made a boo boo. 1.3 million times in a row. In one country alone. But this Japan, a backward, superstition, white supremacist, conspiracy country that doesn’t have medicine. Just IVM that they won the Nobel for and are now prescribing.

    Bonus question: how did they test 1.3 million vials to find out? Hmmm, me detect a rat.

    “the teacher read aloud, unmasked, to a class of 24 students, despite rules requiring both teachers and students to wear masks indoors.”

    …Aaaaaaand nothing happened, because masks don’t work, and kids don’t get it. Why say that? They’re the ones that told ME it’s an R9. And you’re going to stop it by throwing a tea towel on your head? And they call US superstitious. Jesus and Mary. If a tea towel worked before now, we’ve all been doing it wrong. I could just walk into a contaminated person’s room in shorts and flip flops.

    France and protests: so if you protest Nazi behavior, you’re a anti-semite. Wow, I’d like to say I didn’t see that coming, that’s too crazy to be crazy, but it’s really page one of a playbook so old it’s falling apart. Meanwhile, unelected dictatorial bureaucracies run by unelected corporate billionaires that remove sovereignty, democracy, and the voice of the people are Anti-Fascism. Got it. I guess we have to stop referring to them and their fake, opposite, boot-licking reporting as relevant, so whatever they call us doesn’t matter because we have our own friends and causes. …And bail each other out if something happens again.

    The care and compassion is always. However, it’s also when you “repent.” Now that’s a word so loaded with debris you can’t see the original meaning. Basically, it means you’ve left the Tao, the path, God’s ‘Way’, and “repent” means you admit your mistake, come clean, and get back on the path of common sense that works. So in this context the missing part that holds us back a bit is that they need to say, “Aw s—t, I’m beginning to think this is the vax. Double-crap.” Only then can they take actions to undo it instead of remaining lost and wandering as victims. I’m not trying to rub it in but I can’t move forward either. Lacking that, you do what you can.

    Like Cryptos, when people start writing songs and poems about something, it’s over. Not sure why, it’s contacted their emotions which is the generating power for our physical reality? And as much pressure as they have, the poems and songs are popping up all over.

    Kids — generally, like everything, they just lie in reporting about candidates and “The Other.” Even straight GOP are pro gay marriage, public school funding, progressive taxes, etc now. Further “right” (actually Liberty) are generally “ –I– may not like it…but it’s not my or the government’s business to promote, deny, or enforce it either.” So wtf cares if this PERSON disapproves of being gay, or would send his kids to a school with prayer, if he’s asking you to arm and prep yourself, make your own life choices, and leaves you alone by insuring a government so small it couldn’t oppress you even if it wanted to. They tend to get these things mixed up since in their paradigm, if they don’t like something, you want a super-state to make sure nobody else is allowed to like it either, while on the “right” (again, not “right”, since definition of “Right” is also statist) on the “right” they can’t figure out what leftist heads are exploding about because you will be left alone to contract marriage, choose your schools, defend yourselves, read, speak, and act freely and safely in a world where violence is illegal, not words. But it’s for ANY reason, only only when violence is from one “group” to another. If their platform is to “agree to disagree” and everybody goes home, it’s pretty easy to take.
