Something’s afoot. Can’t imagine these two will be the only ones.

“This is a deep problem for actual scientists working within the bureaucracy because they know for sure that all of this is a pretense and that the government cannot win this war on the virus.”

The Meaning of the FDA Resignations (Tucker)

Now to the striking resignation of two top officials at the FDA who were in charge of vaccine safety and administration. It was the Director and Deputy Director of the Office of Vaccines Research, Marion Gruber and Phillip Kause. They gave no reason for their departure, which is scheduled for October and November. The case is fascinating because 1) people rarely resign cushy government jobs unless a higher-paying, higher-prestige job in the private sector awaits, or 2) they are being pushed out. It’s rare for anyone in a position like to to resign over a principled matter of science. When I first read that they were going, I figured something else was up. These days, extremely weird things are going on within the Biden administration.

Even though his approval ratings are sinking, the president has to pretend that he has all the answers, that the science behind his mandates and virus war is universally settled, that anyone who disagrees with him is really just a political enemy. He has gone so far as to denounce, demonize, and legally threaten red-state governors who disagree with him. This is a deep problem for actual scientists working within the bureaucracy because they know for sure that all of this is a pretense and that the government cannot win this war on the virus. They simply cannot preside over more false promises, especially when the whole of their professional training is about accessing the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. So what can they do? In this case, it appears they had to get away before they dropped a bombshell.

The bombshell is called “Considerations in boosting COVID-19 vaccine immune responses.” It appears in the prestigious British medical journal The Lancet. The two top officials are among the authors. The article recommends against the Covid booster shot that the Biden administration, following Fauci’s advice, is suggesting as the key to making the vaccines work better and finally fulfill their promise. Fauci and company are pushing boosters because they know what is coming. Essentially we are going the way of Israel: most everyone is vaccinated but the virus itself is not being controlled. More and more among those hospitalized and dying are vaccinated. This same trend is coming to the US. The boosters are a means by which government can save face, or so many believe.

The trouble now is that the top scientists at the FDA disagree. Further, they think that the push for boosters is courting problems. They think the current regime of one or two shots is working as well as one can expect. Nothing is gained on net from a booster, they say. There just isn’t enough evidence to take the risk of another booster, and another and another. The authors knew this article was appearing. They knew that signing it under the FDA affiliation would lead to a push for their resignations. Life would get very difficult for both of them. They got ahead of the messaging and resigned before it came out. Very smart.

The signed article goes even further to warn of possible downsides. They point out that boosters might seem necessary because “variants expressing new antigens have evolved to the point at which immune responses to the original vaccine antigens no longer protect adequately against currently circulating viruses.” At the same time, there are possible side effects that could discredit all vaccines for a generation or more. “There could be risks,” they write, “if boosters are widely introduced too soon, or too frequently, especially with vaccines that can have immune-mediated side-effects (such as myocarditis, which is more common after the second dose of some mRNA vaccines, or Guillain-Barre syndrome, which has been associated with adenovirus-vectored COVID-19 vaccines.”)

Here’s the article Jeffrey Tucker was talking about.

Among the authors are Marion Gruber and Philip Krause, director and deputy director of the Office of Vaccines Research and Review at FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), who just resigned.

Conclusion: boosters are not needed. But take a look at Gamma in that graph.

Question: why did they resign only after approving Pfizer?

Considerations In Boosting Covid-19 Vaccine Immune Responses (Lancet)

A new wave of COVID-19 cases caused by the highly transmissible delta variant is exacerbating the worldwide public health crisis, and has led to consideration of the potential need for, and optimal timing of, booster doses for vaccinated populations.1 Although the idea of further reducing the number of COVID-19 cases by enhancing immunity in vaccinated people is appealing, any decision to do so should be evidence-based and consider the benefits and risks for individuals and society. COVID-19 vaccines continue to be effective against severe disease, including that caused by the delta variant. Most of the observational studies on which this conclusion is based are, however, preliminary and difficult to interpret precisely due to potential confounding and selective reporting. Careful and public scrutiny of the evolving data will be needed to assure that decisions about boosting are informed by reliable science more than by politics.

Even if boosting were eventually shown to decrease the medium-term risk of serious disease, current vaccine supplies could save more lives if used in previously unvaccinated populations than if used as boosters in vaccinated populations. Boosting could be appropriate for some individuals in whom the primary vaccination, defined here as the original one-dose or two-dose series of each vaccine, might not have induced adequate protection—eg, recipients of vaccines with low efficacy or those who are immunocompromised2 (although people who did not respond robustly to the primary vaccination might also not respond well to a booster). It is not known whether such immunocompromised individuals would receive more benefit from an additional dose of the same vaccine or of a different vaccine that might complement the primary immune response.

With friends like that ….

1 In 7 Vaccinated Americans Have Dumped Friends Over Covid-19 Jabs (RT)

Many Americans have been jettisoning friends from their lives during the Covid-19 pandemic, and for those who have chosen to get vaccinated, views on the jabs are often the relationship-breaker, a new poll has shown. The survey, conducted earlier this month by researcher OnePoll, showed that 16% of respondents have ended at least three friendships in the past year and a half. About 14% of vaccinated Americans said they have severed relationships with friends who chose not to get inoculated against the virus. In fact, vaccinated respondents were nearly four times as likely as those who don’t intend to get the jabs – 66% to 17% – to have ended friendships during the pandemic. The poll showed that 97% of vaccinated people consider their former friends to be “full-blown anti-vaxxers” and said they could never get them to understand the importance of getting the shots.

Covid-19 vaccination is one of the most divisive issues driving a wedge between Americans. The 14% who cited the jabs as the reason for ending friendships compared with 16% who blamed political differences and 15% whose former pal was dating an ex-mate. Other reasons included discovering their friends were liars (7%) and having a friend make up stories about them (12%).Hollywood has apparently blessed the idea of dumping friends who decline to get vaccinated. Actress Jennifer Aniston – ironically, a star of the television series ‘Friends’ – said last month in an InStyle magazine interview that she had ended relationships with people who refused to get jabbed or chose not to tell her their inoculation status. “It’s a real shame,” she said. “I’ve just lost a few people in my weekly routine.”

The level of vaccine vitriol has escalated in recent weeks. Radio host Howard Stern recently blasted “all the s**theads in our country who won’t get vaccinated” and said those who don’t get the jabs should be denied hospital beds if they get sick. “Stay home, die there with your Covid,” he said. OnePoll said 81% of Democrat survey respondents were fully vaccinated, compared with 64% of Republicans and 69% of independents. About 57% of Republicans and 41% of Democrats said society is “too critical” of unvaccinated Americans. Tolerance for vaccine autonomy is waning in America, as President Joe Biden last week ordered all businesses with 100 or more employees to force their workers to get the shots. “We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us,” Biden said of unvaccinated Americans.

Forbes moves into desperate propaganda.

“The vast majority of hospitalizations and nearly all deaths from Covid-19 are in unvaccinated people. The huge surge in demand for what few medicines are licensed to treat Covid-19 in the U.S. has triggered nationwide shortages and rationing of scarce supplies.”

Unvaccinated US Covid Patients Cost $5.7 Billion To Treat In Last 3 Months (F.)

Preventable costs associated with treating unvaccinated American Covid-19 patients amounted to at least $3.7 billion in August and $5.7 billion since June, according to research by the Kaiser Family Foundation, as the disease rips through people who elected not to get free and highly effective vaccines. Around 187,000 Covid-19 hospitalizations could have been easily prevented by vaccination in August, research by Kaiser found, up from 68,000 in July and 32,000 in June. These preventable hospitalizations over the past three months cost the U.S. healthcare system around $5.7 billion, Kaiser estimates based on the average Covid-19 hospital bill of approximately $20,000.

The “ballpark figure is likely an understatement of the cost burden from preventable treatment of Covid-19 among unvaccinated adults,” according to the report, which noted significant variations in costs across the country, a “conservative” estimate of the proportion of Covid-19 patients who hadn’t been vaccinated and studies indicating a potentially much higher average cost than the $20,000 used (one cited put the figure at around $42,200). There are also “substantial” costs for outpatient Covid-19 treatment, the report said, though this was not factored into the analysis.

Due to laws preventing insurers from charging unvaccinated people higher premiums, the Kaiser report said the bill will fall on everyone as they will pay only “a small share of the cost” directly. This means a greater burden on the taxpayer and the risk of higher insurance premiums for businesses and workers, the report said. The costs of being unvaccinated are on the rise, however, with some employers charging higher insurance premiums to employees foregoing vaccination and others making it a condition of work. They are also facing elevated costs for healthcare as insurance companies walk back the waivers on out-of-pocket costs for Covid-19 hospital care introduced earlier in the pandemic.

The Covid-19 vaccines used in the U.S. are proven to be safe and highly effective at preventing serious illness, hospitalization and death from Covid-19, including against the delta variant. They are also supposed to be free and have no out-of-pocket costs. Despite being readily available for months, some states still have very low vaccination rates and many have still not hit the target of partially vaccinating 70% of adults that President Joe Biden set for early July. While breakthrough infections are rare, they can and do happen, though vaccines slash the risks of long Covid, hospitalization and serious illness. The vast majority of hospitalizations and nearly all deaths from Covid-19 are in unvaccinated people. The huge surge in demand for what few medicines are licensed to treat Covid-19 in the U.S. has triggered nationwide shortages and rationing of scarce supplies.

“..the distinguished American public servant will live out his last days in exile among the swooping fruit bats and grinning crocodiles, to the music of toucans screeching in the silk-floss trees (Chorisa speciosa).”

Ordeal by Narrative (Kunstler)

Has doctor Anthony Fauci booked passage to Paraguay yet? Like, on a smallish container barge registered in Cote D’Ivoire, conveying a six months backlog of cars stolen out of Essex County, New Jersey, for detailing and re-sale way up that lazy river to Asunción? The captain has a comfortable guest cabin, price negotiable, but better bring your own food. The US Intel Community will not find the good doctor down there because they will not bother looking for him. And so, the distinguished American public servant will live out his last days in exile among the swooping fruit bats and grinning crocodiles, to the music of toucans screeching in the silk-floss trees (Chorisa speciosa).

Anyway, that’s my fantasy du jour. Walt Disney had it right: America’s fate would be a descent into pure fantasy as the final product of our many twentieth century triumphs. It is increasingly difficult, for instance, to sort fact from fantasy in Dr. Fauci’s magnum opus: the Covid-19 pandemic, starting from the premise that it actually exists. There was some kind of rumpus in Wuhan, China, in January of 2020… folks dropping dead in their tracks on the sidewalks (captured on closed circuit TVs)… folks getting the doors to their apartments welded shut… and then what? Not much indication of further freak-outs inside China since back then. Perhaps the virus has been raging over there all the while, but a million here, a million there, do you really notice the attrition in a land of 1.4 billion? Or did they just switch off that groove on their narrative machine? The CCP can do that, I hear.

Back in the USA, where you’d have to subtract a billion and then-some in population, something was surely killing folks, though, overwhelmingly, most of those folks were already sick, and old, pretty much in the check-out zone. In 2020, the death of old and sick people was declared… impermissible! Death suddenly had no place in the exceptional order of things American. (Ask old Uncle Walt, who reportedly had his head and its gelatinous contents cryogenically frozen, in expectation of future re-animation via science magic! Still waiting for him to come back….)

Of course, the new medical rules-of-engagement circa 2020 included the denial of early treatment with known common anti-viral drugs for folks coming down with early symptoms of the mystery illness. So, while pretending to object to the implacable fact of death — a certainty of the human condition, according to science — we killed a whole bunch of people by withholding treatment. And concurrently, we rolled out the vaccines promising to “protect everybody” only to learn that it provided other, even more diabolical, routes to death.

Nearly Half Of ‘COVID Hospitalizations’ This Year Have Been Mild Or Asymptomatic (ZH)

A brand new study is calling into question how reliable and meaningful of a number of “patients hospitalized with Covid-19” in the U.S. is. Covid hospitalizations – the most common metric heard when discussing the seriousness of the pandemic – may not be nearly as meaningful of a number as many once thought. And don’t take it from us: The Atlantic published a stunning piece on Tuesday citing a new study that suggests “almost half of those hospitalized with COVID-19 have mild or asymptomatic cases”. The Atlantic had formerly called Covid hospitalizations “the most reliable pandemic number,” last winter. Now, after a nationwide study of hospitalization records was release, the publication is walking back its fervor on that statement.

Researchers from Harvard Medical School, Tufts Medical Center, and the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System took on the task of trying to figure out how serious Covid cases were in those hospitalized, and how many people counted as Covid hospitalizations were actually in the hospital for Covid, versus getting a Covid test after being admitted for something else. The study “analyzed the electronic records for nearly 50,000 COVID hospital admissions at the more than 100 VA hospitals across the country,” The Atlantic wrote. It “checked to see whether each patient required supplemental oxygen or had a blood oxygen level below 94 percent” in order to try and determine if cases met the NIH’s threshold for “severe COVID”.

What the study found was that from March 2020 to January 2021, 36% of Covid cases in the hospital were mild or asymptomatic. From January 2021 to June 2021, during the Delta variant’s spread, that number rose all the way to 48%. For vaccinated hospital patients, the number rose to a stunning 57%.

Israel Health Ministry Chief Says Covid Spread Reaching Record Heights (ToI)

Health Ministry Director-General Nachman Ash said Tuesday that the current wave of coronavirus infections is surpassing anything seen in previous outbreaks and that he is disappointed that a recent downward trend appeared to be reversing. Ash’s remarks via video call to the Knesset Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee came as Health Ministry figures showed that over 10,000 new COVID-19 cases were diagnosed the day before and that the positive test rate was climbing. Pointing out that there is an average of 8,000 new infections each day, with occasional peaks over 10,000, he said, “That is a record that did not exist in the previous waves,” including the massive third wave at the end of last year.


Ash expressed some pessimism, though he observed that, belying fears, there wasn’t a large spike in infections following last week’s Rosh Hashanah holiday — the Jewish New Year — or the opening of the school year at the beginning of the month. After bringing daily infections down to little more than a dozen a day in June, Israel has been battling to control a resurgence of COVID-19 in what has been its fourth wave of infections since the start of the global pandemic. “A week ago we were in a clear downward trend; in recent days we’ve been seeing that decline stop, and the virus reproduction number is [again] above 1,” Ash said of the so-called R number, which indicates how many people each virus carrier will infect. Values above 1 show that the outbreak is growing, below 1 that it is shrinking. “I hoped that we would see a clearer drop, but we are still not seeing it,” he said.

Israel Increases Hospital Staff to Fight COVID Surge (Haaretz)

Israel’s hospitals learned on Tuesday that they would receive funding to take on an additional 600 doctors and 1,500 nurses if the government’s forecasts are correct and the number of hospitalized coronavirus patients reaches 4,800 in the next month, with half of them being serious cases. But many health care leaders warned that the extra staff won’t have a profound impact anytime soon because it will take time for them to be trained in treating COVID-19 patients in the midst of a crisis. Their contribution will only be felt only weeks, if not months, after they are hired. Even if the new hires can get up to speed quickly, many doctors said the number of new staff that the government is offering isn’t enough to cope with the growing patient overload – and that is going to affect the quality of care.


Dr. Eytan Wirtheim, CEO of the Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikva and chairman of the Union of Hospital Directors, told an Israel Medical Association conference on Thursday that the staff additions were critical and that “it’s important that we begin today to fill all these jobs and shifts.” He said that in addition to the extra personnel, hospital chiefs had unsuccessfully sought an additional 300 beds for intensive care patients, 800 for internal medicine units and at least 300 for geriatric internal medicine wards. IMA Chairman Prof. Zion Hagai said the extra medical personnel would not help seriously ill patients in the current COVID-19 wave. “If anyone thinks that we have increased our capacity for new patients, the fact is we have changed nothing – we’ve just added beds without the ability to treat patients,” he told the conference. “What are they thinking? That they can just push a button and out comes a trained physician who can begin to work? Experienced nurses also need to be trained before they can enter coronavirus wards.”

Suspensions Put Strain On Greek Health System (K.)

The suspension of unvaccinated doctors and other health workers in effect since September 1, meant as a warning and as an incentive to get inoculated, have resulted in personnel shortages across the public health system. According to the Health Ministry, some 5,500 health workers and other personnel at public hospitals have been suspended, with another 1,000 told they can’t work at primary healthcare centers. The problems are more acute in places with few personnel to begin with, such as on several islands, according to the union of state hospital employees. On the island of Naxos, for example, both surgeons, one of two microbiologists, two out of five lab technicians, two out of seven cleaners and five out of 30 nurses have been suspended. On the smaller island of Amorgos, four out of eight employees are not going in to work.

Newly appointed Health Minister Thanos Plevris tried to put a good spin on the situation. “There are certainly some dysfunctions – I want to be upfront – but those are manageable,” he responded Tuesday to a parliamentary inquiry by SYRIZA MP Andreas Xanthos, health minister in the previous leftist-led government. “We consider that, as the days pass and personnel that get vaccinated resume their duties, and with the activation of three-month contracts [with private sector healthcare providers], even these dysfunctions will be eliminated,” he added. In fact, officials are worried enough that they are considering relaxing the terms of the suspension, allowing personnel who have taken one of the two required vaccine doses back to work. No final decisions have been made about this.

The problem with health workers points to a more general issue concerning the reluctance of people to get vaccinated. Despite all sorts of enticements, incentives and ceaseless messaging, just 56% of the population is fully vaccinated. This drops to 49% for people aged 18-24, who are increasingly getting sick from the Delta variant of the coronavirus. And at schools, which opened Monday and are feared to become new bases for the spread of the disease, less than one in four 12- to 17-year-olds are vaccinated. It remains to be seen whether Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ promise over the weekend of 50 gigabytes of free data for the smartphones of 15- to 17-year-olds will provide any kind of inducement.

France Health Worker Vaccine Mandate Comes Into Effect (G.)

The French government faces a stand-off with tens of thousands of health workers and carers Wednesday over a new rule requiring them to receive a Covid-19 vaccine or face suspension without pay, AFP reports. Starting Wednesday, hospital staff, ambulance drivers, retirement home workers, private doctors, fire service members and people caring for the elderly or infirm in their homes – some 2.7 million people in total – must be able to prove they have had at least one shot of a vaccine. President Emmanuel Macron issued the ultimatum two months ago, but tens of thousands of carers remain unvaccinated.


One of France’s biggest public sector unions, the hardline CGT, has warned of a “health catastrophe” if the government suspends large numbers of health workers and bars private-sector doctors from practising. Defiant health workers have joined opponents of a new coronavirus “health pass” required for entry to restaurants, cafes and museums at weekly protests held across France in the past two months. On Tuesday, a few hundred people attended a union-led demonstration outside the health ministry in Paris.

Bring In Measures Soon Or Risk 7,000 Daily Covid Hospitalisations – Sage (G.)

Between 2,000 and 7,000 people a day could be hospitalised with Covid in England next month unless the government urgently implements a “basket of measures”, government scientific advisers have warned as Boris Johnson made clear he hopes to avoid fresh restrictions. The prime minister confirmed on Tuesday that Covid passports, the return of mandatory mask-wearing and advice to work from home would be kept in reserve as the government’s “plan B”, to be introduced if the NHS is at risk of being overwhelmed. But newly published modelling from experts on the Sage advisory committee warn the government not to wait too long, with cases, hospitalisations and deaths all higher than a year ago despite the success of the vaccination programme.

Speaking alongside Johnson at a Downing Street press conference, the government’s chief scientific adviser, Sir Patrick Vallance, also said experience of battling the virus showed “you have to go earlier than you think you want to, you have to go harder than you think you want to”. He said the UK was now at a “pivot point” where, if the situation worsens, it could do so rapidly. Modellers on the Sage committee expect cases to rise in the coming months after almost all restrictions were lifted this summer, documents show. Daily hospitalisations could plausibly peak at 7,000 in England next month, far surpassing the winter peak, which reached 4,500 UK-wide, according to the updated modelling. Currently about 1,000 people with Covid are being admitted to UK hospital wards each day.


But if enacted early enough, before a rise in cases becomes sustained, even light-touch measures could be sufficient to keep infections flat and prevent a damaging fresh wave of hospitalisations, the Sage documents say. “With the current levels of high prevalence combined with unknown behaviours, the burden on health and care settings could rise very quickly,” the scientists warn. They say “it could be a very difficult winter ahead” if acute Covid combines with other pressures such as long Covid, other infections like flu, or co-infection causes more serious illness. Even though 81% of UK adults are double-jabbed, nearly 6 million are unvaccinated and vulnerable to the highly-transmissible Delta variant now most Covid restrictions have been lifted.

Harrowing Account Of NSW ‘Hospital At Home’ Program (News.au)

The wife of a Sydney man stricken with Covid-19 has given a harrowing account of how the “hospital at home” program is operating revealing her husband was told to remain at home even when he was coughing up blood. The family, who spoke to news.com.au on the condition of anonymity, have raised serious concerns over the “call centre” approach to caring for patients which often involves call centre operators, not doctors or nurses, running through checklists of symptoms with patients. Doctors have raised concerns about the “hospital in the home” Covid treatment system after more than 15 people died at home since August 1. NSW has been left with little choice other than to rely on the hospital at home program after the number of Covid infected patients ballooned and the number of people in hospital and ICU continues to rise.

There are currently over 14,000 people with “active” Covid infection in NSW and the vast majority are being left alone at home to battle the illness. In the case of the 37-year-old man whose family spoke to news.com.au, he was “fit and healthy” and had no underlying conditions. “He is incredibly fit and healthy, a rugby player, he’s very into his health and his diet and fitness and doesn’t have any pre-existing health issues,’’ his wife said. “My husband was diagnosed on September 2. He had really mild symptoms at that point. He received a text. He was told to isolate. And they told him to stay home. They said they would call him every day,’’ she said. “But he didn’t have a GP contacting him. We just had NSW Health Unit contact which was like a call centre. He never really saw a doctor at all. He did have one phone call with a doctor.”

In the first week, she said she was given a list of things that would require her husband’s case to be escalated or taken to hospital. The woman is trapped in Victoria where she was trying to help him over the phone. “If you’ve got freezing cold skin and you can’t warm up no matter what you do. If you’ve got shortness of breath, chest pain, infrequent urination, and if you’re coughing up blood. So those are the things. We felt in good hands at that point. Then, he started to deteriorate,’’ she said. A week ago on Sunday, he started “coughing up blood and having respiratory distress”. “We monitored that overnight and on September 6, we called NSW Health to tell them that he was presenting with one of those symptoms, requiring hospitalisation along with shortness of breath,’’ the man’s wife said.

White House: 75% Of Adults Have At Least One Covid-19 Vaccine Dose

Three-fourths of U.S. adults have been vaccinated with at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, a White House official announced on Tuesday. White House COVID-19 Data Director Cyrus Shahpar marked the milestone in a tweet, saying the country “just hit” 75 percent of adults with at least one shot. He said that from Sunday through Tuesday, 1.51 million doses have been administered, with 681,000 newly vaccinated and 105,000 additional doses, while noting that there is “as usual, lower reporting over the holiday weekend,” referring to Labor Day. The U.S. reached the 75 percent threshold about a month after hitting 70 percent. Previously, President Biden had hoped to achieve the 70 percent mark by July 4.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s online tracker, last updated Saturday, showed that 74.8 percent of U.S. adults received at least one dose and 64 percent were fully vaccinated. The rate of vaccinations has picked up in recent weeks as the highly transmissible delta variant spreads throughout the country, leading to increased case counts, hospitalizations and deaths. The U.S. administered more than 939,000 vaccine doses on Saturday after a steady rise since mid-July, when the pace was closer to 500,000 a day, according to Our World in Data. Still, only slightly more than half of the overall U.S. population is fully vaccinated: 53 percent are fully vaccinated and 62 percent have received at least one dose.

Contaminated Pfizer Vaccines Reported In Several Japanese Cities (ZH)

Several cities in Japan have reported ‘white-colored floating substances’ in Vials of Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine, according to Bloomberg. The vials came from lot FF5357, where white contaminants were first reported by Kamakura City in Kanagawa prefecture. On Tuesday, two more cities – neighboring Sagamihara and Sakai City in Osaka prefecture reported contaminated vials, however there were no reports of adverse reactions. In Sagamihara, white substances were reported at three different vaccination sites on Sept. 11, 12 and 14. The cities told Bloomberg that they will ask Pfizer for an analysis. Last month Moderna came under fire after black contaminants were found in multiple vials of their Covid-19 vaccine in Japan, causing the Japanese Ministry of Health to pull 1.6 million doses of the vaccine. According to NHK, “black substances” were found in syringes and a vial, while pink substances were spotted in a different syringe.

Milley Secretly Called Chinese Officials Out Of Fear Trump Would ‘Attack’ (Fox)

During the final months of former President Donald Trump’s term, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley made two phone calls to Chinese officials in fear that Trump would create conflict with the communist nation, a new book has claimed. In the book, authored by Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward and national political reporter Robert Costa, it is alleged that Milley made two secret phone calls, both to his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army. The book alleges that the phone calls took place prior to the 2020 presidential election on Oct. 30, 2020, and two days after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, on Jan. 8, 2021.

According to the book, Milley contacted Li after he had reviewed intelligence that suggested Chinese officials believed the United States was planning an attack on China amid military exercises in the South China Sea. “General Li, I want to assure you that the American government is stable and everything is going to be OK,” Milley told him during the first call, the book said. “We are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you.” The book, excerpted in the Washington Post, also stated that Milley told Li that he would warn him in advance should America decide to “attack.” “Gen. Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time,” Milley added, as reported by the book, “Peril,” which is set to be released next week. “It’s not going to be a surprise.”

The authors of the book also claim Milley contacted Li a second time to reassure him that the U.S. would not make any type of advances or attack China in any form, as Milley promised, “We are 100% steady. Everything’s fine. But democracy can be sloppy sometimes.” Those phone calls, according to the book, were never mentioned to Trump, as Milley believed his mental state had declined following the election, something about which he shared his thoughts in a phone call with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Jan. 8, the same day he called Li the second time. According to Pelosi, she spoke with Milley that day about “available precautions” to prevent Trump from engaging in military action.

Today CNN, via Bob Woodward and The Washingon Post, via Robert Costa collaborate on a designed hit against one of the key corrupt actors on Team Two, Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley. CTH previously said this was coming: “Look for Joint Chief’s Chairman Mark Milley to be the guy who gets canned to protect Joe Biden. Mark Milley knows this is likely.” The framework of the CNN article is that General Milley: …”called a secret meeting in his Pentagon office on January 8 to review the process for military action, including launching nuclear weapons. Speaking to senior military officials in charge of the National Military Command Center, the Pentagon’s war room, Milley instructed them not to take orders from anyone unless he was involved.

“No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I’m part of that procedure,” Milley told the officers, according to the book. He then went around the room, looked each officer in the eye, and asked them to verbally confirm they understood. “Got it?” Milley asked, according to the book. “Yes, sir.” ‘Milley considered it an oath,’ the authors write. The framework of the Washington Post article paints Milley as even more rogue. A power hungry operator of the industrial military complex, defying civilian oversight:

[…] In a pair of secret phone calls, Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, assured his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army, that the United States would not strike, according to a new book by Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward and national political reporter Robert Costa. One call took place on Oct. 30, 2020, four days before the election that unseated President Trump, and the other on Jan. 8, 2021, two days after the Capitol siege carried out by his supporters in a quest to cancel the vote. The first call was prompted by Milley’s review of intelligence suggesting the Chinese believed the United States was preparing to attack.

That belief, the authors write, was based on tensions over military exercises in the South China Sea, and deepened by Trump’s belligerent rhetoric toward China. “General Li, I want to assure you that the American government is stable and everything is going to be okay,” Milley told him. “We are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you.” In the book’s account, Milley went so far as to pledge he would alert his counterpart in the event of a U.S. attack, stressing the rapport they’d established through a backchannel. “General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”

[..] You think CNN and the Washington Post only recently came to the understanding that General Mark Milley was a corrupt, politically motivated actor, working on behalf of the interests of the Deep State [4th Branch]? Of course not. They are using the opportunity of this book by Woodward and Costa to hit Milley, place the blame for Afghanistan in his lap, and make him the scapegoat so that Joe Biden and the other participants can avoid further scrutiny. Their play is transparent.

    Anecdotal:

    I spoke to one of my brothers today, whom I hadn’t spoke with in a couple of months…

    He manages a franchise location of a large national pizza delivery chain in SoCal. He told me that he now believes, from first hand knowledge, that the vaccines were a mistake (He, along with his 3 girls got the clot shot, ignoring their crazy brother/uncles advise).

    Everyone at his store is vaccinated, and The Delta (his words) has been taking them down one-by-one.

    One 54 year old driver, with mild diabetes, had a heart attack about 10 days following the 2nd jab ~ He’s in a coma now, not expected to recover…

    Two 20-21 year old employees have been out sick for over a month, not sure if they’ll return ~ All of this in environment where they’re operating at best 1/2 staffed. They can’t find anyone interested in a job.

    Others have had The Delta as well, but recovered with difficulty. He says it’s probably only a matter of time for him, too.

    His ex-wife is suddenly having liver/kidney/digestive issues & was hospitalized for 3 days, weeks after the 2nd koolaid injection. No history of anything close to this issue…

    Moreover his landlord has been bedridden for 3 weeks with The Delta, but he’s a “anti-vax Trumper” (I reminded him that Prez Bigmouth authorized all of this vax madness).

    He also mentioned that everyone he is acquainted with (he speaks with a LOT of people on a daily/weekly basis) detest Guv’nor Newsroom +most were pro Larry Elder (everyone in my circle too) ~ I told him that the demoRAT machine is full of lying psychopaths ~ I doubt there’s been an honest Klownifornia election for over a decade.

    This is the same brother that 2+ years ago was fully self-obsessed, stream-of conscience gabbing non-stop about himself, his daughters & sports (not to me) ~ His demeanor today over the phone was serious, dark & introspective.

    He ended the call by saying he’d wish that he took me more serious over the years, especially back in SEPT 2005 when I advised him (+ everyone else) to sell his home & sink the equity into PMs and/or Treasuries until the market bottomed out.

    He asked me what I thought would be coming next…

    I told him that it’s very likely a LOT of people are going to become dead or disabled by next winter & to prepare for MAJOR supply chain disruptions. I could have said more, but I wanted to end on a less than catastrophic note.

    I also told him that I pray that I’m wrong…

    I have a bunch of anecdotes as well. Today, landscaping on my own in a half acre backyard I had a police vehicle pull up with the signage displayed in large lettering – SAFETY / COMPLIANCE. So we now don’t do police work we do safety and compliance work. They checked to tell me to put a mask on. I think they were worried I would infect the cherry blossoms I was pruning. I did as asked.
    THEN went to get a coffee in town – no one there. Ghost town. They ask me to put on a mask. I put one on. They then ask me to scan my QR code so the Government can verify I was there at 2 pm having a coffee. I comply. Then I go in and they ask to check my phone to see proof of QR scanning. I comply. THEN they request my drivers license ID check. To make sure I am not from Melbourne (some have escaped). I comply.
    This is not made up. This town has a population of 1500 people and is in the middle of fucking nowhere.
    We are screwed here.

    I’m not supporting any more businesses unless it is absolutely necessary.
    I am now actively trying to withdraw ALL support for this toxic shit.

    “vaccinated respondents were nearly four times as likely as those who don’t intend to get the jabs – 66% to 17% – to have ended friendships during the pandemic.”

    They’re safe. So what is their active, voluntary ending of friendships in service of? Not their own safety, nor the safety of others.

    “consider their former friends to be “full-blown anti-vaxxers”

    And their response – while sitting in perfect safety themselves – is to abandon their friends at risk rather than continue any action, however small, to save them. And save others. Explain? These are the self-professed moral superiors acting on a selfless, moral basis.

    “Those who don’t get the jabs should be denied hospital beds” Said our moral superiors. Denying health care is a primary foundation of the Hippocratic Oath. “I promise to provide health care to anyone, unless I don’t like their age, gender, race, type, beliefs, or talk. Then for to good of all, I withhold lifesaving medical care, knowing thanks to a licensed monopoly, they must surely die from my actions.”

    That’s how I remember the oath, medical practice, and the Red Cross, don’t you?

    Tolerance for vaccine autonomy is waning in America,”

    Oh is it now? Is that why whole states are doing the opposite, whole sporting events, no one’s following mask guidelines anymore, and people are fleeing to free states by the multi-multi-millions?

    “ Unvaccinated US Covid Patients Cost $5.7 Billion To Treat In Last 3 Months (F.)”

    Well if it cost money we should DEFINITELY remove all human rights forever and hand the oversight of medicine and society to unelected profit centers. That’s just common sense.

    “The huge surge in demand for what few medicines are licensed to treat Covid-19 in the U.S. has triggered nationwide shortages and rationing of scarce supplies.”

    Huh? TheWhat? If there are medicines licensed to treat Covid, there can be no Emergency Use. What medicines and therapies are they talking about? What shortages and why? Is it because so many doctors feel these therapies are working that they’ve massively prescribed these medicines? If the doctors en masse believe they are working, why doesn’t the pharmaceutical company make more?

    “The Covid-19 vaccines used in the U.S. are proven to be safe and highly effective at preventing serious illness, hospitalization and death from Covid-19, including against the delta variant.”

    That is a truly breathtaking statement at this point.

    Researchers from Harvard Medical School, Tufts Medical Center, and the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System took on the task of trying to figure out how serious Covid cases were in those hospitalized, and how many people counted as Covid hospitalizations were actually in the hospital for Covid, versus getting a Covid test after being admitted for something else.”

    Yes but who is Harvard Medical and Tufts really? Like John’s Hopkins and the Israeli medical system, a bunch of conspiracy theory cranks, I think. The real expert is Chad at Twitter and Facebook. He knows.

    “The problem with health workers points to a more general issue concerning the reluctance of people to get vaccinated.”

    Trust the doctors. 44% of them refuse to get vaccinated, so I follow their lead. I mean, plus the CDC, NIH, and White House, Congressional Staffers, and pharmaceutical companies and executives. Wouldn’t they know best?

    France Health Worker Vaccine Mandate Comes Into Effect (G.)”

    Well I’m proud to see the revolution starts in France again.

    “Sir Patrick Vallance, also said experience of battling the virus showed “you have to go earlier than you think you want to, you have to go harder than you think you want to”.

    Says a guy who did both and has the highest failure rate in the known world. Meanwhile, in Sweden… And Kenya, and Calcutta, and…

    His charts: Oh wait! Vaccines are working! Hospitalizations have doubled! Working = more sicker!

    “Three-fourths of U.S. adults have been vaccinated with at least one dose”

    Uh, what? “If they say it, it’s a lie.” “Open mouth, lie comes out.” So everyone’s vaccinated, you win! Who are you selling this to since you’ve already met all your goals? How is anyone getting sick, and why mostly in the vaccinated states? Who’s out there protesting since all this is true?

    What is this I hear about you shutting off all food to Blacks and Jews in NYC because they’re only 38% vaccinated? (But not actors and baseball players, DEFINITELY not the Met Gala) If 75% are vaccinated, how are 38% vaccinated? And if you want higher vaccination rates, shouldn’t you really be talking to the 1M illegal immigrants being bused to hot-spots nationwide?

    “Still, only slightly more than half of the overall U.S. population is fully vaccinated: 53 percent”

    If you’re talking ADULTS vs somebody, then maybe you should lead with that? And if so, who’s fault? According to your self-created rules, YOU said we can’t vaccinate that 25%: you won’t allow us no matter how we try. And is ¼ of the country really children? Doesn’t that seem high?

    Why would I look it up? Everything in that article makes no sense and it a lie, when I go to the CDC data, THAT makes no sense and has been proven for two years to be a lie. Who would I check with? Whoever Deflationista points at today?

    Germfree song: apparently somebody has had a psychotic break from reality? In that every mask place is worse than every mask-free place two years running? In a contest between reality and your mind, it’s a no-brainer who wins.

    Contaminated Pfizer Vaccines Reported In Several Japanese Cities (ZH)”

    Now why are people reluctant just ’cause Pfizer is constantly contaminated, J&J was shut down twice, and 20 nations outlawed AstraZeneca? I mean, don’t you know they’re safe and effective? OTHER than the contamination in Pfizer, J&J, and every vial of Astra worldwide? Other than that, safe as houses.

    It’s probably not illegal to book a conference to communicate and restrain the President. However, Milley, the General-shaped-object, was not IN chain of command as I understand it. He was a Presidential Advisor. Also, communicating with yourselves is wildly different than calling the enemy, coordinating with him, promising your actions on his behalf, and giving him the all-clear.

    “They are using the opportunity of this book by Woodward and Costa to hit Milley, place the blame for Afghanistan in his lap,”

    If so, it’s not working. Nobody’s thought of F-Stan, which remains Biden’s, and added several new levels of treason that now include Nancy Pelosi and almost certainly those around her. She said she asked the Generals to commit a coup after the election, but the generals said no. According to Woodward, the generals, and she, said “Yes”. That is, “Yes, we solemnly vow and promise to go outside the chain of command, and instead include China in our decisions and chain of command.” The oath at one level was not to the President, as it might be, not to the Constitution as it should be, but to Milley personally, who was not even in the structure.

    Oxy, that is deeply ominous. You’re in, or beyond, a Soviet situation. Learn what they did.

    “That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn’t even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn’t even an enemy you could put your finger on.” — Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

    Tad long.

    Are you vaxed? No, I am vexed. That’s my latest approach and it seems to disarm the inquisitor as they feel they can help me with my vexation about vaccination. This way I can set them up for cross examination with all the misinformation I have gleaned from TAE, like a good lawyer…eh.

    Holy hell, oxy. I tend to approach this stuff like MLK. My wife on the other hand leans more towards the Malcom X approach. It just means I will be too late in pulling the trigger and likely dead and she will pull the trigger too soon and end up in jail.

    The Minaj fluff up the other day. Ya know, had she been a good sister she could have tweeted that her man got the shot and his wanker is so huge now.

    Anyway, my wife and I recently got the holocough. We are 56 and in good health. My case was very acute and short lived. I took HCQ and nutraceuticals. My wife had a rough time of it. She was on HCQ, IVM and nutraceuticals. She ran a fever for 10 days. Definitely impacted lungs, kidney and heart. Follow up EKG showed enlarged ventricle. She is doing better now. We have been riding again. She was able to do a 12 mile ride with me last night at about 90% of her pre-covid pace so that is encouraging.

    The experience got me thinking about the weaponized spike protein again. You definitely don’t want that thing finding it’s way into your cardiovascular system and reeking havoc. For this reason the injection has been marketed as the safer option. The case for the injection follows this kind of logic.

    “Most COVID-19 vaccines are administered by injection into our upper arm, away from any major blood vessels. Once injected, the muscle cells around the injection site express the spike protein, thereby eliciting an immune response from the body. A large proportion of the remaining dose in the arm drains through our lymphatic system, into the liver and then is destroyed by enzymes there. A very small proportion may ultimately end up in other tissues or the bloodstream. 

    Most people get infected by SARS-CoV-2 after inhaling virus-laden droplets from other infected individuals. In this case, the virus first infects cells in the airway, and then deeper in the lungs. Once in the lungs, it then circulates through the bloodstream to the rest of the body. This infection leads to significant damage of the endothelial cells of the lungs. It causes inflammation and inhibits much needed oxygen supply to our blood.”

    https://health-desk.org/articles/what-do-we-know-about-vaccines-lung-damage-and-blood-clots

    Here are some “preventionistas” raising the flag on unknown long term sinister outcomes.

    “Infection preventionists need to be able to articulate to those who feel that the young are safe just because their fatality rate is extremely low, that even in this age group there are major concerns regarding long-term consequences of this virus.

    Several recent studies have supported the growing hypothesis that coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is primarily a cardiovascular, and not a pulmonary virus. The narrative that those affected are usually asymptomatic and have very mild or no disease may be false. Many of those who are asymptomatic may actually fall victim to myocarditis, a sinister, stealth-like disease, whose resulting disability may take decades to manifest.”

    https://www.infectioncontroltoday.com/view/is-covid-19-primarily-a-heart-and-vascular-diseases

    Back to this hypothesis that very little spike will end up in the bloodstream after injection. Does it matter if I get the shot in the left or right arm?

    The thoracic duct, where the two shall meet.

    In vertebrates, there are two vascular systems: the cardiovascular and the lymphatic system. To exert their functions, both vascular systems build highly branched, tree-like tubular structures. In the cardiovascular system, the heart pumps the blood through arteries into smaller arterioles and into capillary beds. From there, the blood returns via venules and veins to the heart to proceed to the lungs for new oxygen loading. Under physiological conditions, the major functions of blood vessels include the supply of gases, fluid, nutrition, and signaling molecules to the tissues with the capillaries as the actual sites of exchange. At these sites, plasma leaks from the capillaries into the interstitium, driven by blood pressure and osmotic gradients. The lymphatic capillaries take up this protein-rich fluid, thereby maintaining not only tissue fluid homeostasis but also exerting immune surveillance. The lymphatic network is composed of blind-beginning thin-walled capillaries without pericyte coverage and with incomplete basal lamina as well as of collecting lymphatic vessels with a smooth muscle cell layer, a basement membrane, and valves, which prevent back flow of lymph. The largest collecting lymphatic vessel, the thoracic duct, connects the lymphatic system with the cardiovascular system.

    The thoracic duct is the largest lymphatic vessel in the human body. Around 75% of the lymph from the entire body (aside from the right upper limb, right breast, right lung and right side of the head and neck) passes through the thoracic duct.

    While Fauci, Biden, your doctor or nurse will say it doesn’t matter I would probably go with the right arm if you are so inclined to risk the jab.

    “ The Covid-19 vaccines used in the U.S. are proven to be safe and highly effective at preventing serious illness, hospitalization and death from Covid-19, including against the delta variant. They are also supposed to be free and have no out-of-pocket costs. Despite being readily available for months, some states still have very low vaccination rates and many have still not hit the target of partially vaccinating 70% of adults that President Joe Biden set for early July. While breakthrough infections are rare, they can and do happen, though vaccines slash the risks of long Covid, hospitalization and serious illness. The vast majority of hospitalizations and nearly all deaths from Covid-19 are in unvaccinated people. The huge surge in demand for what few medicines are licensed to treat Covid-19 in the U.S. has triggered nationwide shortages and rationing of scarce supplies.”

    What a crock of propaganda bullsh*t. Do not use your own brain, we’ll tell you what to think.

    And: “ Preventable costs associated with treating unvaccinated American Covid-19 patients amounted to at least $3.7 billion in August and $5.7 billion since June, according to research by the Kaiser Family Foundation, as the disease rips through people who elected not to get free and highly effective vaccines”

    How much you wanna bet that they took the total costs of *all* hospitalized who were unvaccinated and tested positive for Covid, even the thousands of patients who were in the hospital for reasons completely unrelated to Covid infection. The purpose of his piece is to foment negative emotions in the vaxxed towards the unvaxxed. Those who don’t have “a star upon thars.”

    On the 13th anniversary of the Lehman bankruptcy, Evergrande, China’s largest real-estate company, announces default, non-payment of interest.
    (Our son, Jim turns 30 today, also.) China’s decision to put limited funds into finishing construction instead of servicing debt seems practical.
    ​ ​According to Bloomberg, Chinese authorities told major lenders to China Evergrande Group not to expect interest payments due next week on bank loans, which takes the cash-strapped developer a step closer the nation’s largest modern-day restructurings, and guarantees that China’s “Lehman Moment” is now just a matter of days, if not hours.​..instead most of Evergrande’s working capital in now being used to resume construction on existing projects, the housing ministry told bankers…​ With senior leaders in Beijing silent on whether they will allow Evergrande creditors to suffer major losses, bondholders have priced in slim odds of a rescue…

    ​John Ward has done thorough research here. His use of the English language is always exemplary:
    Autoantibodies, Fauci the antimatter liar, Ivermectin the Saviour – & a way for those already vaccinated to avoid death
    ​ ​Collating eclectic data from around the world, The Slog takes another stab at waking people up….while showing that, even for the doubled vaxxed, there is a still huge advantage in saying NO from here on.
    ​ ​One can observe categorically that medical researchers in Australia, India, France, the US, Germany and Japan are showing why the mRNA Covid “vaccines” tested by Oxford Recovery on dogs killed all the vaccinated animals. The detailed nature of deadly Cytokinic overreaction is closely allied to the study of how ‘autoantibodies’ develop. These little mothers are not always good news.

    ​ I have been waiting for the details on why these 2 distinguished career​ technocrats recently resigned. I knew it was about mRNA vaccines, but what?
    ​How significant is it that the two top FDA officials responsible for vaccine research resigned last week and this week signed a letter in The Lancet that strongly warns against vaccine boosters? This is a remarkable sign that the project of government-managed virus mitigation is in the final stages before falling apart.

    1) many of the “6 million unvaccinated” have survived Covid and have more durable, thorough immunity to Covid than the vaxxed. These are the backbone of future herd immunity. Stop belittling them and the public contribution they are making.

    2) the vaxxed are ALSO “ vulnerable to the highly-transmissible Delta variant .”

    3) I’m not so sure that the “ Covid restrictions” actually made much of a difference in the trajectory of the virus. Specifically, masking is not efficacious and leads to more transmission because people “feel safe” when they are not.

    Plus no autopsies anywhere to actually discover what people are dying of.

    None.

    You think that is not planned.

    Israel has massive up tick in ‘cases’ for two reasons

    Either the Spike Protein, which is toxic all by itself and it NOT ‘alive’, is poisoning people, mostly vaxxed

    OR

    ADE is actually kicking in.

    They are one of the most Cull-Shot-ed countries on earth.

    They are the canary in the mine.

    Poison Spike Proteins or ADE

    I don’t see another explanation.

    “One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine.”
    The caption of this response is one of the many brilliant sayings of
    that great brain, Sir William Osler. In the twenty first century, I could
    only echo that great sentiment as a truism, despite all the tall talk
    about the “so called” evidence based medicine. Napoleon Bonaparte went one
    step further, but one could ague that he was not a physician. Napolean was
    at the receiving end of such a medical practice in Persia where he died.
    “Medicine is a collection of uncertain prescriptions the results of which,
    taken collectively, are more fatal than useful to mankind.” Napoleon,
    though, was more accurate scientifically today. Latest science says that
    uncertainty is the only certainty in the world. This is truer in medical
    science, if there is one. A proverb is a short sentence based on long
    experience. If that were so, this one from Voltaire takes the cake: “The
    art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the
    disease.”

    Time and again I had written in responses to the journal as also in
    my articles elsewhere that our evidence base has been built on loose sand.
    (www.plosmedicine.org/annotation/listThread.action-
    )www.bmj.com/content/338/bmj.b1272.extract/reply) Of course, no one seems
    to take it seriously. They would have, if it had any financial interest
    behind it. The present RCTs and linear relations help generate billions of
    dollars in chemical therapeutics even if that results in thousands dying
    of our efforts directly or indirectly. (search.barnesandnoble.com/Death-by

    I found the above while looking for the history of thalidomide, I wanted to know how long after adverse effects were seen was the drug banned.

    It seems now that for many physicians the first duty is to ensure the masses take experimental untested unnecessary medicines…

    Disclaimer;: I was experimented on as a child with psychology and as a teenager with drugs and psychological methods in a cultures so am extremely skeptical of authority.
    Tell me I must do or take something and I won’t. Cajole, coerce or incentive me and I won’t even more, force me and I’ll bite your hand off…
    Or appear that I have complied but really I am planning my revenge and will get you when you least expect it.

    Our mask song
    Sounds like an ode to blind obedience
    Reminds me of the refrain to a Mormon children’s song:
    Follow the prophet, follow the prophet, follow the prophet – he knows the way
    And “the prophet” is the current leader of the Mormon church.
    At least they are learning to sing tunefully and learning an American folk song.

    Many thanks for your anecdote. When stats are high enough, they should generally be corroborated by anecdote and vice versa. Combining anecdotes helps us to see the trends. I know of more injured by vax than dead or with long Covid from the virus.

    “But newly published modelling from experts on the Sage advisory committee warn the government not to wait too long, with cases, hospitalisations and deaths all higher than a year ago despite the success of the vaccination programme.”

    It’s getting to the point where I wonder if they introduced crappy, leaky vaccines just so they could make the actual numbers of yearly deaths finally match the those predicted by the Imperial College modellers. Then they can point out that they were right all along.

    There’s still money to be made from Thalidomide. Interesting how a drug which was almost as popular as aspirin now costs over $5,000 to treat leprosy.

    By the late 1950s, thalidomide was marketed in forty-six countries with sales almost as high as those of aspirin.
    https://embryo.asu.edu/pages/us-regulatory-response-thalidomide-1950-2000

    THALIDOMIDE is used to treat multiple myeloma. It is also used to treat moderate to severe new lesions of leprosy and to prevent and keep the skin lesions of leprosy from coming back.
    $5,742

    They’ve already proved that half the country will beg for their “leadership” because of the “pandemic”, now imagine people don’t have electricity, food, gasoline? Who will you hang with? The soyboys in the city or the people in the country who just happen to be a bit more independent? Assuming they let you hang with them.

    It’s been my working assumption for quite awhile that the destruction of civil society has been
    a long-term plan of our transnational ruling class. What I’m wondering at the moment- assuming for the moment that that’s true- is how far back that program goes; perhaps it was started even in the 60s. See, for example, how many music icons of that time have ties to the military, and to the -IAs. Then look at Hollywood’s recent (?) work product, and corporatist-pushed “woke-ism”, and the like.
