“Israel, where ~90% of the adult population is fully vaccinated, reports 3,849 new #COVID19 cases, severe cases spike to 324 (of which 209 are fully vaccinated)” – Ministry of Health









There are entire “long covid in kids” campaigns out there.

Long-Lasting Covid-19 Symptoms Rare In Children (BBC)

Children who become ill with coronavirus rarely experience long-term symptoms, with most recovering in less than a week, research suggests. King’s College London scientists say that while a small group may experience prolonged illness, they were “reassured” that number was low. Headaches and tiredness were the most common symptoms seen. A Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health expert said the data reflected what doctors saw in clinics. Many who are infected do not develop symptoms and those that do, tend to have a mild illness. This peer-reviewed study, published in the Lancet Child and Adolescent Health journal, wanted to understand how Covid affected children and how it compared to other respiratory diseases. It used data provided by parents or carers to the UK Zoe Covid Study app.

The study looked at 1,734 children, aged between five and 17, who were reported to have developed symptoms and tested positive for Covid between September 2020 and February 2021. The researchers say it’s very difficult to know how many children were infected during this time period as the four UK nations record data differently, but they estimate more than 400,000 children and young people tested positive. Fewer than one in 20 (4%) were found to have experienced symptoms for four weeks or more, with one in 50 (2%) having symptoms for more than eight weeks. The most common symptoms reported were headaches and tiredness. Others included a sore throat and loss of smell. On average, older children were typically ill for slightly longer than primary school children, with those aged between 12 and 17 taking a week to recover while for younger children the illness lasted five days.

It’s the scientists hope that these findings will reassure families, while also validating those who have experienced prolonged illness. ‘The team also looked at an equal number of children who had symptoms but tested negative for Covid. Only a few children – 15 out of 1,734 – had symptoms for at least 28 days, fewer than one in 100. Emma Duncan, professor of clinical endocrinology at King’s College London who worked on the research, said the “takeaway message” was: “Can children have prolonged illness after Covid-19? Yes they can, but it’s not common and most of these children get better with time. “Children can also have prolonged symptoms from other illnesses as well. We need to be looking after all children who have protracted illnesses, irrespective of whether that illness is Covid-19 or anything else.”

The obvious questions that are forbidden.

Let’s Talk Delta (Denninger)

I’ll try to make it simple. Before the first jab went into the first arm and could do anything Covid-19 had peaked in the United States in most areas. Remember that the rule is “two weeks from first shot to second, then two weeks to have protection.” The CDC, Trump and then Biden all took credit for something that the vaccines did not do. What did it? Covid originally had an R0 of about 3. That means you need 1 – (1/3) or about 66% of the people to be immune by either infection of vaccination before the case rate would fall. The CDC claimed we had about 33 million infections and somewhere between 4 and 11 not diagnosed for each one that was. Well, it wasn’t 11 because that’s more people than exist in the US.

But if it’s six, more or less up the middle, then we were for all intents and purposes at herd immunity. Rah-rah-rah-rah vaccines are the reason we’re saved. Nice try; the evidence is that the vaccines don’t work well at all. They might work to some degree to prevent infection and transmission but not very well. In fact on the evidence coming out of Israel it appears that they’re about 20% effective which is damn close to worthless. What proved this? Delta. Again, if you believe the CDC, then Delta has an R0 of somewhere between 5-9. Let’s take the middle; 7. 1 – 1/7 = 85% must be immune. Again, it doesn’t matter how their immune, just that they are. The CDC claims in a new MMWR that the shots are “very” effective as a booster if you previously had Covid. I disagree, looking at their alleged “study.”

check the Delta fatality rate

But frankly, I don’t care what their MMWR says because the data says its wrong. See, 70% of Americans have had at least one shot and half are fully vaccinated, that is, allegedly protected. Now let’s look at the data again. The CDC stupidly did not segregate and hive off those who were previously infected; we’ll thus, given their advocacy, assume that the previously-infected, which are about 60% of the population, are equally divided into those who got the stabs. Well, if that’s true then 60 + 25 = 85% — which is herd immunity for Delta with an R0 of 7! Clearly, however, it isn’t given the infection rate. There is only one logical conclusion: The jabs do not work to stop either infection or transmission. If you can’t stop infection and transmission you also can’t stop people from getting sick.

So when does this end? When enough people get naturally infected that we have actual herd immunity. Which is what I said back in March of 2020. What does this mean for you? Well, it makes for a problem right now, because we know that during the four weeks between the first jab and immunity building you’re more likely to get infected. We’ve seen this repeatedly all over the world. Into the maw of a spike getting vaccinated is dangerous because it temporarily suppresses immune response. It probably doesn’t increase the risk of bad outcomes but it definitely increases the risk of infection itself. The very difficult question for people now is whether that risk is worth the nebulous claims of “preventing severe disease and death.” UK’s data, along with Israel’s, strongly suggests that might be a bad bet. The majority of their admissions into the hospitals are now vaccinated. So much for “prevents severe disease” eh?

[..] BTW the data out of the UK continues to show Delta is less dangerous. A lot less-dangerous. It’s about one fifth as likely to kill you overall, and about half as likely if you’re over 50. It is also less-likely to send you to the hospital. This is the expected progression of a respiratory pandemic virus. While it appears on that data the vaccines confer some personal protection it is by no means perfect and nowhere near the 95%+ claimed, especially in people over 50. Further there is no evidence Delta is more-transmissible; its secondary attack rate in household and non-household settings is nearly identical to Alpha. This STRONGLY implies the CDC is lying about Delta’s R0 and the real problem driving the spike is that the jabs not only do not work against Delta they destroy the victim’s immune response in some percentage of those previously infected.

No-one with a positive antibody test should be vaccinated. Where are those tests?

Durable And Broad Immune Memory After SARS-CoV-2 Infection (Cell)

Ending the COVID-19 pandemic will require long-lived immunity to SARS-CoV-2. Here, we evaluate 254 COVID-19 patients longitudinally up to 8 months and find durable broad-based immune responses. SARS-CoV-2 spike binding and neutralizing antibodies exhibit a bi-phasic decay with an extended half-life of >200 days suggesting the generation of longer-lived plasma cells. SARS-CoV-2 infection also boosts antibody titers to SARS-CoV-1 and common betacoronaviruses. In addition, spike-specific IgG+ memory B cells persist, which bodes well for a rapid antibody response upon virus re-exposure or vaccination.

Virus-specific CD4+ and CD8+ T cells are polyfunctional and maintained with an estimated half-life of 200 days. Interestingly, CD4+ T cell responses equally target several SARS-CoV-2 proteins, whereas the CD8+ T cell responses preferentially target the nucleoprotein, highlighting the potential importance of including the nucleoprotein in future vaccines. Taken together, these results suggest that broad and effective immunity may persist long-term in recovered COVID-19 patients.

SF Hospital To Give Supplement mRNA Vaccine To People Who Got J&J (ABC)

Even though the CDC is not recommending a booster shot at this time, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and San Francisco’s Department of Public Health have decided to allow an extra coronavirus vaccine for people who got the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The new dosing allowance seems to be unique to San Francisco. The hospital’s chief of staff does not know of any similar guidance elsewhere at this time. ZSFG says people who got J&J will be able to get a second shot of either Pfizer and Moderna by the end of the week at their vaccine clinic. But “booster” is not the word health officials are using to describe it – instead San Francisco’s Department of Public Health is calling it a “supplemental dose.”

“It’s not a booster because it’s not specific for some of the variants, which the booster ultimately will be,” said Dr. Chris Colwell, chief of emergency medicine at Zuckerberg San Francisco General. On Monday, Dr. Colwell voted to allow the hospital’s vaccine clinic to give a supplemental mRNA vaccine to somebody who had the J&J shot. “Potential benefit, no downside. To me, as we look at the future of this virus and now we’re facing a fourth surge, it does make sense,” he explained.

Another study that will be suppressed.

Cholesterol Drug Cuts Coronavirus Infection By 70% (Fox)

A drug meant to treat cholesterol was found to reduce coronavirus infection by 70% in lab studies, with researchers calling for additional clinical trials among hospitalized COVID-19 patients. A team of researchers from the U.K. and Italy published findings in the Frontiers in Pharmacology journal Friday, finding that fenofibrate and fenofibric acid resulted in a significant reduction in coronavirus infection in human cells when the drug was used in safe and approved concentrations, according to a news release posted Friday. “Our data indicates that fenofibrate may have the potential to reduce the severity of COVID-19 symptoms and also virus spread,” Dr. Elisa Vicenzi of the San Raffaele Scientific Institute in Milan and co-author, said in the release.

“Given that fenofibrate is an oral drug which is very cheap and available worldwide, together with its extensive history of clinical use and its good safety profile, our data has global implications.” The team called for added clinical trials to explore use of the drug as a potential COVID-19 therapy, while noting studies are ongoing at the University of Pennsylvania and Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Dr. Farhat Khanim of the University of Birmingham and corresponding study author, cited viral variants spurring rising infection rates and deaths in countries around the world. “Whilst vaccine programmes will hopefully reduce infection rates and virus spread in the longer term, there is still an urgent need to expand our arsenal of drugs to treat SARS-CoV-2-positive patients,” Khanim wrote.

[..] The drug was suggested to work by inhibiting the harmful overproduction of cytokines tied to coronavirus infection, and also treat airway inflammation. Additional properties could prevent blood clotting seen in late-stage disease in many COVID-19 patients, study authors noted.

Pay attention to the René Girard quote.

The Unvaccinated: The New COVID Scapegoats (TF)

The press revels in condemning conservatives for not getting the vaccine. Self-loathing conservatives like David French say Evangelical vaccine hesitancy is a “spiritual problem.” Conservative governors – those with low COVID death rates in their states – are attacked for not doing enough to encourage vaccination. Paul Krugman takes these arguments to the next level, arguing that conservatives seeking personal autonomy are really trying to preserve their while male Christian “privilege” while making minorities pay the price. The government – including officials like Dr. Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins – must be happy with the blame-shifting. Just imagine their delight, after having potentially contributed to the creation of COVID-19, that the unvaccinated are now the accused.

Never one to miss a media appearance, Dr. Fauci is out there saying the unvaccinated are “propagating” the latest outbreak, that we need to “do something to get them to be vaccinated.” This duty that Dr. Fauci advances is the purported obligation to do something to protect others. (One has to ask whether millions of lives would have been saved had they followed this same duty with taxpayer dollars at Wuhan.) We believe this is just the start. If persuasion has reached its limit (and there is evidence it has), then please, trust them at their word when they advocate restricting your rights and inflicting punishment if you remain unvaccinated. And in considering the institutions of power setting their sights on the unvaccinated – those whose purported crime is of inaction – I leave you with the words of René Girard:

“The crowd tends toward persecution since the natural causes of what troubles it and transforms it into a turba cannot interest it. The crowd by definition seeks action but cannot affect natural causes. It therefore looks for an accessible cause that will appease its appetite for violence. Those who make up the crowd are always potential persecutors, for they dream of purging the community of the impure elements that corrupt it, the traitors who undermine it.”

COVID-19 Vaccine To Be Offered To 16 And 17 Year-olds (HART)

On Tuesday, there was a quiet mention from the BBC and several newspapers that the government was likely to announce routine vaccination of 16 and 17 year-olds following updated advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). This announcement duly came on Wednesday. An urgent letter is being prepared to the JCVI to ask what new information they have to inform this decision. On 19 of July, they highlighted the very low risk to children from COVID-19 and the emergence of rare but serious side-effects. They stated: “Any decision on deployment of vaccines must be made on the basis that the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks to those people who are vaccinated.” They concluded: “JCVI is of the view that the health benefits of universal vaccination in children and young people below the age of 18 years do not outweigh the potential risks”.

Only two things appear to have changed in the two weeks since that announcement. First, there has been a dramatic fall in cases demonstrating how wrong the government advisors have been. Secondly, the membership of the JCVI has changed and Professor Robert Dingwall — who has raised concerns around the ethics of vaccinating children — is no longer a member. It has been revealed that other members of the JCVI Covid-19 sub-committee have also been ‘let go’. In attempting to defend the shift away from this position, JCVI Chair Professor Wei Shen Lim was entirely unconvincing in his reasoning for this change of heart. We note that he has a substantial conflict of interest: he has direct responsibility for material levels of funding received by his department from Pfizer.

The JCVI’s current position is that the second dose is too dangerous for children but the first dose is safe enough. The evidence upon which they base the latter hypothesis is based only on data of short-term effects collected by the voluntary reporting systems such as VAERS, which is acknowledged to underestimate by a wide margin. It begs the question, why would it be necessary to vaccinate children with a single dose when the government has already argued via the national campaign that the first dose is not sufficient to be effective and that everyone must get their second dose? Public Health England estimates that a single dose of vaccine is only 35% effective against the Delta variant.

We were told in the press conference that the rollout would come in the next week or two but now there are targeted sessions at nightclub venues, so no chance for adolescents to take time to consider their ‘choice’ and a very clear message that you will need ‘the jab’ to get your life back. The plea to ‘do the right thing’ and protect your friends and family seems rather hollow with new data from PHE suggesting the Delta variant is as easily transmitted by vaccinated as unvaccinated, with vaccine effectiveness down to 17% and no reduction in infectiousness. Meanwhile news of the planned rollout to 12-15s has appeared even though approval is yet to be given.

“the very sort of environment that we’re creating by having so many people vaccinated with a vaccine that doesn’t kill off the virus, it actually can lead to a more potent virus. Try finding that story anywhere.”

Joe Rogan Blames Jabs For Virus Mutations & Blasts Mandatory Vaccination (RT)

Angry Twitter users called for Joe Rogan to be canceled and Spotify held accountable for giving him a platform after he claimed vaccines may cause virus mutations and labeled mandatory jabs a step towards ‘dictatorship.’ Rogan’s controversial statements have caused online frenzy on multiple occasions since he moved his super-popular podcast from YouTube to Spotify in a $100 million-plus exclusive deal last year to avoid censorship. The show instantly became one of the most viewed on the platform, with Spotify saying it was performing “above expectations.” Back in April, the stand-up comedian and UFC commentator was trending on social media after suggesting young and healthy people didn’t need to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, and warning that giving into cancel culture could eventually lead to a situation in which “straight white men aren’t allowed to talk.”

He addressed the issue of vaccination once again in the latest episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, saying that, by trying to inoculate as many people as possible, the US government might actually be making the virus stronger and more dangerous. He based his claim on the findings of a peer-reviewed scientific paper published in the PLOS Biology magazine in 2015. Its authors said “anti-disease vaccines that do not prevent transmission can create conditions that promote the emergence of pathogen strains that cause more severe disease in unvaccinated hosts.” Speaking about the so-called ‘breakthrough cases’ of inoculated people becoming infected with Covid-19, Rogan suggested that “the very sort of environment that we’re creating by having so many people vaccinated with a vaccine that doesn’t kill off the virus, it actually can lead to a more potent virus. Try finding that story anywhere.”

However, the US authorities insist that vaccination is the best way to stop the coronavirus pandemic, with President Biden’s chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, reiterating last week that those, who avoid getting the jab “are the ones that are propagating this outbreak.” According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data, more than 70% of adult Americans have so far received at least one shot of the vaccine. Rogan previously acknowledged he was “not a doctor” and his audience shouldn’t look to him as a reliable source of scientific information. He also claimed he was “not an anti-vaxx person.” During the latest episode, the 53-year-old also said those pushing for mandatory vaccination to be introduced in the US, “are dumb. They don’t understand human history.”

US politics? Boring.

The Very Fine People of a Civilized Society (Kunstler)

Now, the very fine president “Joe Biden” has appointed a very fine fellow named Merrick Garland to be Attorney General of the civilized society called the USA. Mr. Garland is chief enforcement officer of federal law. He attended the very fine Harvard Law School, but he apparently missed the seminar course in constitutional law titled Advanced Issues in Administrative Law and Theory. Mr. Garland has been sending letters to officers of the Arizona state government threatening to punish and even imprison anyone in that state who moves further to investigate the balloting results and the conduct of the 2020 election in that jurisdiction. Mr. Garland, having missed that crucial course (above), is apparently unaware that the US constitution assigns authority over elections to each state — with the reserve clause that the US Congress can legislate changes to that order of things, which they haven’t done.

Therefore, Mr. Garland is out-of-order. Will he actually move to interfere with an effort currently underway in the state of Arizona to conduct a full forensic investigation of the 2020 vote? Elected officials of that state have counter-threatened to throw Mr. Garland’s very fine ass in an Arizona jail if he attempts to interfere. Meanwhile the forensic investigators of said election hired by the Arizona State Senate have completed phase one of their task, close examination of the paper ballots, and are moving on to phases two and three: canvassing street addresses from which mail-in ballots originated, and full examination of the Dominion vote-tallying machines.

There is reason to suppose that the investigation will reach conclusions that might distress the very fine people of the Progressive Left who maintain that the 2020 election was the “most secure in history” — that is, without any significant errors. If that were so, why would they hesitate to examine the evidence? Might it raise questions that would be difficult to answer, for instance: what to do if very large errors happen to be discovered? Is it an affront to their very fine-ness? Is the US government not fit to manage such a result? Or are the people of this land not resourceful or fair-minded enough to work through such a development? It will be interesting to find out.

‘Apocalyptic’ Scenes Hit Greece As Athens Besieged By Fire (G.)

Little had prepared any of us on the Athens-bound flight for the sight of the great fire-induced clouds that swept either side of the plane as it made its descent on Friday. News of the extreme heat engulfing Greece had spread beyond its borders all week, packaged in increasingly desperate language. Temperatures were breaking records few had ever imagined. If Monday was bad, then Tuesday was worse. In some parts of the country, the mercury had hit 47C (117F), with thermal cameras on drones recording the ground temperature in downtown Athens at 55C. By Wednesday, we were hearing that entire tracts of suburban forest on the Greek capital’s northern fringes had gone up in flames. Infernos seemingly redolent of Dante’s hell had incinerated everything in their path; friends had lost homes; thousands had been evacuated with residents and tourists fleeing blighted zones by any means possible.

Terraces, an Athenian’s respite against the blazing heat, had been transformed into ash-laden no-go zones. “It’s been crazy over here. Between the extreme heat and the wildfires, it feels apocalyptic,” Eleni Myrivili, a friend recently appointed to the role of Athens’ first chief heat officer, wrote in an email on Thursday as the army was deployed to assist firefighters. “Ash is raining down on us here in Athens.” From the sky, it was frighteningly clear that the city was under siege, caught in a cycle of insufferable heat fuelling conflagrations on terrain so parched it was ready to ignite at any moment.

Fires, some big, some small, some extinguished and then rekindled, were raging nationwide, the country’s civil protection chief, Nikos Hardalias, told reporters. Conditions were not only “extremely dangerous” but unprecedented, he said, estimating that firefighters trying to protect populated areas, electricity installations and historic sites had battled 154 wildfires over the space of the week. More than 60 conflagrations were still raging on Saturday.

    “The Federation of State Medical Boards warned July 29 that physicians and other healthcare professionals could be at risk of losing their medical licenses if they spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation on social media, online and in the media. ”

    The noose is tightening.


    “People who are unvaccinated and not immune to COVID-19 have been demonized, “and it’s unfounded,” according to Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health”

    Dr. Makary – please turn in your medical license on the way out.


    @John Day,

    Agreed about the rapid antigen tests. From what I got, they aren‘t any more reliable, though, especially as most are not done by medical personal (e.g. still no taking into account symptoms and context).

    But: At least in my country, the official „case numbers“ are still the ones determined by PCR tests. When you have a positive rapid antigen test result, you are supposed to get a PCR test done asap. (Which really is another way to skew the numbers, since you now preselect whom to PCR-test and whom not – makes current numbers uncomparable to numbers from pre-antigen test months.)

    So I think my point still stands (also for the other reasons I mentioned, in particular skewed testing regimes): Comparing anything based on „number of infected“ is not a solid basis. We might get some indications from case numbers, but they are just not reliable for any comparison, methinks.


    The “Noble Lie” was :

    1) we need to get to herd immunity to get back to normal.
    2) Universal (or at least 70% uptake) is how we get to herd immunity.
    3) The vaccines are prefectly safe.

    All three are false

    @Dr.D, regarding the antebellum south argument about taking-care-of-the-simple-darkies being a variant of what limousine-liberals are promulgating as an excuse for underprivileged-minorities being under-vaccinated.
    1) Uh, we don’t put it that way because it is harmful.
    2) Of course they TRUST US!

    John Day

    Having to get a “confirmatory” PCR on a “breakthrough” case post-vaccination is another way to lower the count of “breakthrough” cases, because you don’t have to count them if the extra step is not done, it might be a false-negative, and it at-least delays reporting a little bit.


    Imagine claiming if you throw a couple virgins in the volcano,
    it will stop the volcano.
    Then when the volcano still erupts, they claim “yes but it would have been worse without those sacrifices”.
    We must make more sacrifices because – this is the delta volcano!

    Interesting they’ve been able to identify 4000 variants, but 18 months into this mess they have yet to develop an accurate means to test whether a person has the disease. (as evidenced by the CDC ditching the PCR test by year’s end because it can’t differentiate between covid and the flu)

    @Starfish: Yes, exactly. When I look at the “Our World In Data” graphs for prevalence of “cases”, I suspect many of those are just dodgy positive test-results. While this gives us a shadowy idea of just how much the virus is in circulation in a given location, it nonetheless generates more heat than light, IMHO.


    About germ’s link to losing medical licenses …

    Consensus-driven? (like the effectiveness of lockdowns, masking and mass vaccination of everyone, including pregnant women and children?) Verifiably false? (like all those autopsies that prove post-vaccine death isn’t related to the vaccine?)

    How can anyone in their right mind think this is acceptable and will contribute to the good of any society? Mass psychosis indeed. Wow. Thank you, Germ, for the links you provide.

    “Fauci, Walensky, Biden, Pasaki and the rest of the Biden apparatchiks are liars, frauds, and fear mongering whores for Big Pharma. Fauci is the father of covid. He created it with his illegal gain of function funding, partnering with the communist government of China and is responsible for all the death and economic destruction wrought over the last eighteen months. He should be tried, convicted and executed for crimes against humanity. History should lump him with the likes of Josef Mengele and other mass murders.

    The current fear narrative being peddled by Fauci and Biden is the dreaded Delta variant, previously known as the Indian variant. Did you ever wonder why they had to rename the Indian variant? The chart below is why.

    That’s because cases crashed by 90% in the two months from the peak in May. And guess what? It happened with no vaccine rollout. They did send tens of millions of doses of ivermectin out to the population. These FACTS do not support the approved narrative being spun by our contemptible corrupt leaders. “


    Roboto, yes, prev. thread, I should have stated, these news articles, about vax passes and the like in different countries, denouncing the unvaxxed, and the like, are projections, not a done deal!

    For ex. here in CH I yest. read a MSM article “Life will get VERY difficult for the non vaxxed” but the content was very slim, extensions of the “Pass” will be coming… I guess that will be so – for now the few clusters of infections that have been detected in the city I live in originated in nightclubs, where to enter one needs the “Pass” ..hmm… …

    The MSM’s role is scare-mongering and preparing the public for the ‘new measures.’

    Your remark reminded me, Macron made his mega speech about the super-stiff Covid measures on TV with the Eiffel Tower as background, unusual – normally he is sitting in the Elysée with a bunch of symbols casually scattered about – : on 12 July. (link 1 France 24 eng)

    Before Parliament voted on the measures. It endorsed the “Pass” on 26 July. (link 2 F 24 eng)

    Subsequently the proposed legislation went to the Constitutional Council for examination, 5 August. (link 3 Bloomberg eng)

    The Constitutional Council scotched a few of the proposals (imho they were included there to be tossed, say, re. firing ppl..) while the “Pass” was given full approval. Which was the sole and primary aim, the rest is fakery and distraction for the gallery.

    Both Parliament and the Constitutional Court fulfilled their orders of rubber-stamping approval of the “Pass.”

    The democratic and ‘law’ safe-guarding institutions in France are not only dysfunctional, but controlled, subservient to dictates from above. (As persons, hanging on to their privileges, status, incomes..) These instituitions are empty shells, a theatre, a mockery.


    Sure must be some smart folks on this blog!

    happy birthday, barack.

    now that you are retired, perhaps a little community organizing is in fashion. bring that big tent. bring erykah badu, too – she’s great. the rest of your guests, well, cheesy comes to mind. stephen colbert?! i get it, you gotta pay back favours. anyhoo, bring the tent, and the caterers, too.

    and then ¡organize! they really, really need it, buddy. you got the dough, you got the face, you got the microphone.

    or do you find these people “deplorable”? naw, that couldn’t be..

    what say thee?!

    Just took one for the team by suffering through the entire Sam Harris / Eric Topol podcast of shame. Oh my gaawd ! It was SO bad, so thinly veiled insult and malice that this no time to be inappropriately polite it. No one should buy the hype that either of these smarmy jerks is actually smart. I mean , seriously. They are so transparently FAKE .

    The only way Topol could have published anything legitimately scientific is if he coercively stole it AND (and I hope Tony isn’t offended by the comparison) he is like Fauci’s dim-witted evil twin, complete with mafioso dialect. Harris’ touted “genius” (despite purchased praise to the contrary ) is simply divorced from reality. He is an actor playing the role of smart and humble, reading a juvenile bullshit script to wax eloquently about complete fantasy as though abstract nonsense is equal to fact. Totally mistaking the map for the terrain, and about as conscious as the SciFi superdupercomputer he wants to plug us into.

    I’m serious. They’re both as phoney as a whoopie cushion, just not as funny.

    “Herd immunity must be achieved by transmitting the virus”

    “The epidemiologist believes that it is now necessary to try to achieve herd immunity to the coronary virus by letting it continue, but to try to prevent serious illness by protecting vulnerable groups. He says the goal at this point cannot be to eradicate the virus from society.

    One and a half months after the abolition of all domestic operations, a record number of people have been diagnosed infected in recent weeks, despite the fact that the majority of the population has been vaccinated.”



    “News of the extreme heat engulfing Greece had spread beyond its borders all week, packaged in increasingly desperate language. Temperatures were breaking records few had ever imagined…By Wednesday, we were hearing that entire tracts of suburban forest on the Greek capital’s northern fringes had gone up in flames. Infernos seemingly redolent of Dante’s hell had incinerated everything in their path…”

    This is what I have been lamenting (and posting) over in recent months. Feeling untethered and asking the larger questions of life here in Northern CA – and beyond. Watching everything die under the relentless heat (months of high temperatures, weeks over 100 degrees). Knowing that we would be so venerable once official fire season arrived. A mild winter (no snow pack), no spring (no rain) and then summer with a vengeance. My daily walks are impossible now as the smoke is so thick you can barely see beyond 1/8 mile, a gentle ash falls, headlights flick on upon starting the car – it’s dark and eerie.

    The Monument fire is 13 miles away (as the crow flies), still lots of forested, mountainous terrain between us, perhaps a week before it arrives and the potential announcement of evacuations.

    Grateful that our small town has become a fire camp for the firefighters who are arriving from all over the state. Yesterday I saw engines from Burbank, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. The one grocery store in town was packed with young men stocking up; “thank you for being here” with a smile and a wave was my greeting. All the while feeling humbled and fighting back tears in recognition that others would come here to help. Unlike Greece, we have resources but they are limited. Many firefighters, water tankers, and supplies are deployed on the older, larger fires over in the Sierras. Trinity County is over 80% USFS managed land, so the Forest Service takes a lead in strategy, “managing” the fire is their aim. We also have an ass-kicking, fire fighting force like no other – CAL FIRE who is also on the job here. Reports from the professionals on the fire lines is that they have never seen fires behave quite like this….Despite these awesome protections, Mother Nature will be herself and in the end there may be no defense against this fire.

    Staying positive, I do what I can. Small things matter. Am providing fresh, clean watering stations and food for the various critters who wander through. Saw the twin fawns yesterday, they made me happy. The art gallery (where I work) went ahead with the Art Walk event last night. Almost no one showed up (ha). About a dozen folks came through the gallery and were delighted with the new exhibit – Works on Canvas, Paper and Boards. Members turned in good pieces for this show and it was fun to curate/hang. We had several great CA wines and hors d’oeuvres to share (finished the bottle of Sauvignon Blanc myself!). The Trinity County Fair is this week. Will be running the Logging Show, judging the beer and wine entries, and facilitating the talent show. Looking forward to my annual dose of funnel cake whipped cream and berries)!

    Just heard that Junction City (the very small town on the other side of the mountain pass to the west) has moved from prepare to evacuate to evacuate. They are being very cautious and that’s a good thing. My go bags are being packed – Clover (dog), Violet (cat) and I will head out if it comes this way.

    * The Covid Daily
    – Is donated vaxxed blood safe?
    – How will boosters shots affect ADE?
    – How will Ivermectin affect ADE?
    – Aerosols spread Covid 19 and masks don’t block aerosols
    – 311 Canadians contract Bell’s Palsy after vaccination
    – Despite all being vaxxed cruise ship reports Covid cases
    – Sinovac and Sinopharm are inactivated viruses but still have spikes and might cause ADE
    – Two doses of Ivermectin reduces infection rates by 83% in the following month
    – Those with antibodies shouldn’t be vaxxed
    – Supplemental doses aren’t exactly boosters according to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital; Nuff said
    – Variants might be named after constellations; This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
    – The mRNA vaccines are gene therapy; Trust the Science; One can refuse treatment in a hospital; Much or our discussion is guesswork
    – Physicians who cause Covid 19 vaccine distrust could lose their license because they are not consensus driven and are hence verifiably false
    – PhD’s least likely to change their mind and get vaxxed
    – Pfizer agreement is a deal with the devil; You can take Ivermectin but you still won’t get your soul back
    – Vaccination is like throwing a virgin into a volcano; Or maybe like throwing a slut into a tar pit; Hard to say
    – Many so called cases are just dodgy positive test results; It’s easier to identify 1000 variants than accurately test one person
    – Vaxx death pathology: If you’re not looking you won’t find it
    – Stop fighting the curve; At this point everyone is either vaxxed or had the opportunity to get vaxxed; Everyone must face Covid; You’ve got to walk that lonesome valley
    – The unvaxxed are demonized; Life to get very difficult for the unvaxxed but at least they will still be alive

    * The Three Noble Syllogisms and the One Grand Conclusion
    If we reach herd immunity then things will go back to normal
    If we can all get vaccinated then we will reach herd immunity
    If the vaccines are safe and effective then we can all get vaccinated
    It follows that since vaccines are safe and effective, therefore things will go back to normal

    – Democracies by definition are happy with their states of affairs
    – The demos may oppose a thing but the kratos will have its way

    * We don’t need no vaccination
    We don’t need no jabbed control
    No dark mask mandates in the classroom
    Hey! Fauci! Leave those kids alone!

    those darned kids

    by requiring all children to mask, we will:

    a) help them develop immunity to the higher levels of CO2 to be found in tomorrow’s challenging atmosphere;


    b) develop a generation of climate change warriors who will absorb tons of excess CO2 with the simple act of breathing.

    Fauci warns more severe COVID-19 variant could emerge as cases rise: US ‘could really be in trouble’

    The article refers to “sub-variants.” That sounds…scientific. Sure it does.

    It’s Fauci’s fear that the variant could mutate even further into a deadlier strain as the virus continues to spread. ,,,

    “If we don’t crush the outbreak to the point of getting the overwhelming proportion of the population vaccinated, then what will happen is the virus will continue to smolder through the fall into the winter, giving it ample chance to get a variant which, quite frankly, we’re very lucky that the vaccines that we have now do very well against the variants – particularly against severe illness,” he said. “We’re very fortunate that that’s the case. There could be a variant that’s lingering out there that can push aside delta.”…

    I smell a back story set-up here–as more and more vaccinated get the covid and get seriously ill and die (not even counting any unknown ADE type scenario) he is setting up the unvaxxed to take full blame. I like that he doesn’t talk jargon to us non-scientific folk –“overwhelming proportion of the population.” Sure doc.

    The scary thing to me is, we here at TAE get the sense that all the lies are about to come tumbling down. But outside of a few pockets, I do not see any change in people’s understanding of the situation. The hook of fear is in so deep their instincts will not let them pull it out, afraid more of that damage than anything else.

    We are living a freaking real-life Simpsons episode. I could not stop laughing. If I did I probably would have cried. The scene where Homer tosses the cat in a plastic ziplock. Genius. Watch For These Symptoms: Mild thirst or hunger, tiredness in the evening.

    absolute galore

    @galore, “… we here at TAE get the sense that all the lies are about to come tumbling down. But outside of a few pockets, I do not see any change in people’s understanding of the situation. The hook of fear is in so deep their instincts will not let them pull it out …”

    Agreed. Just got off the phone with a relative who is a dr, first time talked to in months. I feel like crying, would rather be laughing but can’t right now. omg. What is going on???

    Dr. D

    Congress had the CDC under oath and was asking them basic questions this week, one of which was “how do we know there are variants, what tests are you using?” Answer from experts was: “Duh…I dunno.” “You don’t know anything about the tests you’re using to end all human rights?” “Nope, not a thing. Why?” As you say, that doesn’t mean there ISN’T a test, it just means the experts are morons who don’t know or understand the source material, and therefore can’t be trusted to set policy.

    Same thing with Alberta case, THAT court couldn’t produce CV-19 genome and prove it, but doesn’t mean nobody can, and they probably have. Maybe that prosecutor and judge didn’t WANT to produce it and let the guy off. But it is super-duper embarrassing, undermining all credibility, as indeed it’s doing.

    Next problem: not a single thing said so far has been true. Except, I guess, that there IS such a disease, of some sort, sorta. Except we lied about where it came from, and when, and how deadly, and how widespread, and the containment, and the contagion, and the restaurants, (and the elections) and all the treatments, and the 60k grandmas we killed so… So we trust NextStrain? Cuz they got a cool site? And who are they? Fed by ChinaLab, CDC Director “We all gonna die” Walensky, Dr. Fauci, or The Donald and Guilani? Oh sure! They were all trustworthy fellows! Nothing’s gone wrong trusting experts so far!

    I believe they have real variant tests. Local hospitals here refused the PCR test and used their own from the start so they DID know…but only in the hospital, not in the area, where PUBLIC policy was set to kill us and enrich Bezos. And I totally believe there are the expected strains in expert labs, however that doesn’t mean the street tests distinguish variants, just as the PCR test distinguished…nothing at all, according to the CDC. Thus the CDC totally didn’t know what test, because…suspect they’re making it up right now for “The Narrative” and the new, expensive, required tests are scattershot and not widespread in the streets. They don’t want to say, “Boston’s Mass General saw Delta 14x in the actual hospital tests, so we’re just computer back-modeling it’s mostly Delta, but honestly have no idea.” Thus no brand names they knew. I’m just guessing. After being right for 18 months in a row by using mere BaU, cynicism, and the raw common sense of a sea sponge.

    Starfish has great question not yet resolved, “70% of hospitalized are vaccinated” but are they presenting for Covid? Or Chemo and heart surgery? Because if the latter, it would track the overall population and no surprise. …Except for one thing: shouldn’t the unvaxxed be noticeably unsafe, but aren’t? Since everything they’ve told me or promised for 18 months or 18 years has been a bold, extractive, punishing lie, why would I believe them even IF they told me? And they, the CDC, journalists, 18 months later STILL don’t ask this simple question and write it in their articles? Really? Everyone is super-dumb but only exclusively in one direction. …Dumb about having no definitive virus and antibody tests, for example. Or knowing what “threshold” for “contagion” is. Only things that pump the numbers. And the sales. And unending unlimited dictatorial powers ending all human rights forever. Journos cream themselves for that. Clearly they’ve already planned 26 variants and many more.

    Speaking of constant, unending lies: “ the vaccines that we have now do very well against the variants.” That’s not what I read (from you). But if it is, you have nothing to worry about! You’re safe and the idiots will win the Darwin Awards. So yes. His mouth moved, so it’s both a lie and a set up for mass murder, his specialty. (Thinking of his HIV days here, not to pick a side on CV).

    Fauci: “More severe variants.” More severe for whom? You just said ten minutes ago the vaccinated are totally, totally safe. Somehow unlike Iceland, Israel and UK but whatever. Anyone not vaccinated already doesn’t want to be. Problem solved, war over: you won. …I mean unless you’re L Y I N G, again.

    Day: I know or I would check into a hospital for my own protection. If I’m not sick enough, they will discharge me perforce. So I need to be chronically sick. And get free cable. Any disease I can get or drug I can drink to do that for me? Get my human rights back? Whiskey and shrooms maybe? I can take one for the team.

    Well, Sam Harris is from Stanford/UCLA, so… “One of the Four Horsemen of Atheism” (therefore zealotry religious), a noted Islamophobe, wasn’t he one of the guys who decided they’d all cure religion with brain drugs since it’s a clear disease? Maybe I’m mixing him up.

    Topol, what can I say? 1,200 articles (um…buffaloing people into sharing credit?) no in-crowd locations or credentials, was one of the first to whistleblow Vioxx, critical of Merck. Warned if they release vax before full FDA it would backfire on public trust. Does seem to be a top social-climber, grant recipient, TDS, etc, but.

    Rand Paul out there trying to test if they’ve got the people on their side and can take action yet. WE are they army. They can’t march until we march first. Perhaps France and Italy are braver than we, but otoh, most of us in 95% of counties live days without anyone enforcing the “rules” so why protest?


    Thanks for this perspective, Dr D, “Rand Paul out there trying to test if they’ve got the people on their side and can take action yet. WE are they army. They can’t march until we march first.”


    Ok. A friend sent a article referencing a study that states that unvaccinated, covid survivors are 2.53 times more likely to get disinfected with covid than covid vaccinated. I looked at the study, and am hoping that someone here with more experience than I can parse the study.

    Reduced risk of covid reinfection after vaccination

    This response has been curious to me since you posted it…

    If We do not delete who are the supersecret moderators?

    Is your ID used by several people, ala the Tylers on Zero Hedge?

    I’ve been following this blog since incept, but didn’t post until this year as I was active on TF, becoming inactive as a poster altogether for several years, until the insanity of 2020…

    Never the less, I really appreciate the effort over the past year + all the pertinent info proffered to date, it has been invaluable.

    Dr. D said:

    With the full authority that the CDC completely doesn’t have. At all. And the Supreme Court just SAID they don’t have. At all. But if everyone plays along… That’s why they were desperate to make it propaganda, but technically voluntary.

    Under the banking/.MIL empire all sorts of tyrannical contrivances have been accepted as legit by the ‘Merikan Sheeple, who continue until now to graze on pastures of ignorant bliss…

    Just like 28 years ago, when blood-lust thugs executed 82 INNOCENT men, women & CHILDREN for opposing their authority.

    I realize that many on TAE are not U$ entities, but even they should know that as long as the Declaration of Independence is extant that there is hope for ALL of humanity, if only enough AMERICANS care to claim it as their birthright…

    But if the global tyranny is successful in the dark RESET, all hope will be lost for generations.

    Dr. D said:

    Am I kidding? As Dr. Day. If I voluntarily check myself into a hospital, take up a bed, can I not then REFUSE ALL CARE, including vaccines, and they STILL have to see me, and they STILL can’t vaccinate me, legally, can’t even give me aspirin, without my consent? So the Hospital is the only place safe FROM medicine. How many levels of #OppositeLand is that?

    In FEB 2019 my mother’s right lung became collapsed due to pleural effusion casued by stage IV cancer, at which time we entered the Clown World of modern medicine:

    1) First hospital admission (Hoag Irvine) misdiagnosed her as suffering from congestive heart/lung disease, which she has never had, absolutely no edema present, ever ~ Sent to nursing home with instructions to see her pulmonologist in 6 weeks (previously scheduled) to discuss…

    2) Second hospital (St. Joseph Orange) drained the effusion after the lung fully collapsed in 4 weeks & diagnosed the cancer, assigned an oncologist that ordered no further action ~ Sent to nursing home…

    3) Third hospital was an emergency admittance after my wife suggested we take her to St. Jude Cancer Center, who treated her mother, which found my mother’s lung had collapsed again after 3 weeks ~ The doc was awesome, ordered minimally invasive surgery to remove scar tissue + do a proper biopsy, which showed she had a chance to survive do to a new wonder drug called Tagrisso…

    I took over all care with my mother (power-of-atty), dealing with the whole debacle, which daily involved monitoring the nurses that kept jacking my mother up on opiods + valium to keep her cooperative, against my express orders.

    Through much effort & care from my wife & I my mother has had two wonderful years, with hopefully several more to come.

    If you, are someone you love, are subjected to the U$ hospital system, don’t trust anyone & question everything!

    Infinite Father, Infinite Children, Infinite Journey.

    The Light always defeat the darkness, never lose faith in the Infinite, though there will be much groaning during this finite existence…
