“A complex disease cannot be solved through a simple, magic-bullet cure or vaccine.”

The headline seems a strange attention seeker, but the fact that it’s published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases deserves attention. A highly respected scientific publication now says cut the crap and dim the noise. Times are a-changing.

Covid-19: An ‘Extraterrestrial’ Disease? (Elsevier)

Since the beginning of the pandemic, COVID-19 has been regarded as an exceptional disease. Control measures have exclusively focused on ‘the virus’, while failing to account for other biological and social factors that determine severe forms of the disease. We argue that although COVID-19 was initially considered a new challenge, justifying extraordinary response measures, this situation has changed — and so should our response. We now know that COVID-19 shares many features of common infectious respiratory diseases, and can now ascertain that SARS-CoV-2 has not suddenly presented new problems. Instead, it has exposed and exacerbated existing problems in health systems and the underlying health of the population.


COVID-19 is evidently not an ‘extraterrestrial’ disease. It is a complex zoonotic disease, and it needs to be managed as such, following long-proven principles of medicine and public health. A complex disease cannot be solved through a simple, magic-bullet cure or vaccine. The heterogeneity of population profiles susceptible to developing a severe form of COVID-19 suggests the need to adopt varying, targeted measures that are able to address risk profiles in an appropriate way. The critical role of comorbidities in disease severity calls for short-term, virus-targeted interventions to be complemented with medium-term policies aimed at reducing the burden of comorbidities, as well as mitigating the risk of transition from infection to disease. Strategies required include upstream prevention, early treatment, and consolidation of the health system.

German doctors agree: dim the noise.

Google translate. “If compulsory vaccination is not wanted – and I do not want it either – then there is only one political alternative: The lifting of all state-imposed restrictions..”

No More Horror Rhetoric And Panic Politics: German Dcotors (HNA)

The National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians no longer sees any reason for corona measures in Germany: “Now it is no longer the responsibility of the state”. Berlin – Denmark recently lifted all Corona * measures. No masks, no tests, no hygiene rules are now the order of the day in the Scandinavian country. The National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (KBV) has now called for such a procedure: The most important medical association in Germany is calling for all corona rules * to be repealed. “If compulsory vaccination is not wanted – and I do not want it either – then there is only one political alternative: The lifting of all state-imposed restrictions,” said the deputy chief executive of the KBV, Dr. Stephan Hofmeister, on Friday (September 17, 2021) in Berlin.

All citizens who wanted to protect themselves against the coronavirus with a vaccination could do so. In contrast to spring, there are also enough vaccine doses available. Hofmeister said: “Now it is no longer the responsibility of the state, but the individual responsibility of each and every one of us.” Before the start of the nationwide vaccination campaign, some “severe and stressful cuts for everyone” had to be justified, Hofmeister said, according to the Ärztezeitung. “Not any longer longer.” He expects a different kind of communication from politics to the citizens. Surveys show that some people refuse to be vaccinated in protest against political pressure. There would be a “bad mix”, said Hofmeister. Unfortunately, people are still trying to make politics with fear. Hofmeister demanded: “It must finally be an end with horror rhetoric and panic politics!”

KBV chairman of the board, Dr. According to the Ärztezeitung, Andreas Gassen spoke out in favor of “a little more rationality” in the corona discussion. “After a year and a half in crisis mode, we finally need a rational discussion.” Debates should not be conducted on the basis of fears, but rather on the basis of facts. One such fact is that the no-covid strategy would not work in any country. Since the beginning of the corona pandemic, around 4.13 million people in Germany have been infected with the Sars-CoV-2 virus, and almost 93,000 people have died after being infected with the pathogen. 52.2 million people (62.8 percent of the total population) are fully vaccinated. A total of 55.7 million (67.0 percent) received at least one vaccine dose.

What mass murder looks like everywhere ivermectin is rejected.

Heavily Vaccinated Small State Accounts For 65% Of India’s Covid Cases (Blaze)

The Indian state of Kerala has 3% of India’s population, and 67% of its inhabitants have at least one vaccination. One would expect Kerala’s COVID cases to be so low as to be invisible in a chart of India’s very low overall cases. Yet this state of just 33 million people accounted for 65% of all of India’s cases on Thursday, and even more in recent weeks. It has essentially been the only state experiencing a surge in recent months. It also happens to be the Indian state that has rejected ivermectin. I have written several columns on the miracle of Uttar Pradesh, India’s largest state, which has essentially eradicated COVID with the universal use of ivermectin. In general, most of India experienced very few COVID cases since the large spring wave because there is a great deal of immunity built up. However, Uttar Pradesh, despite its population of 240 million people, has been averaging fewer than 20 cases over the past few months for its seven-day rolling average. This is India at large:

Now compare to Uttar Pradesh, which has a flat line rather than just a low churn.

Now let’s compare this to the state of Kerala, which has removed ivermectin and other proven therapeutics from its treatment protocol and has gone all in on the ineffective remdesivir.

As you can see, unlike anywhere else in India, Kerala kept experiencing a robust spread for months and has only finally begun to turn the corner. This relatively small state of less than 3% of the Indian population has been responsible for the overwhelming majority of cases for months. So, let’s review the statistics again.

Uttar Pradesh:
• largest state of 240 million people
• roughly 20 cases a day
• 193 active cases — 33% with one dose of vaccine (and near zero when cases were going down in the spring)
• universal ivermectin use

Kerala:
• 33 million people
• 65% of all current cases in India
• 186,000 active cases
• 67% with at least one vaccine
• banned ivermectin

“The protocol clearly says antibiotics like Azithromycin or vitamins are not indicated for COVID-19 patients,” said R. Aravind, Head of Infectious Diseases, Thiruvananthapuram Government Medical College, of the Kerala revised protocol in early August. They removed ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine but retained remdesivir as part of the treatment protocol. Well, Kerala’s case rate is about 8,000 times greater than that of Uttar Pradesh, which liberally uses ivermectin and focuses on early and preventive treatment. Rather than following the example of Uttar Pradesh, Kerala is increasing restrictions on human freedom. Why treat people when you can just control them?

“Mathematics was not wrong in the time of Galileo — he was right and the priests were full of crap — and it isn’t wrong now.”

The Sad Reality: Civil War, Or A Divorce, Is Coming (Denninger)

This is a matter of mathematical fact; a virus must find a new host or it dies out and the basic formula for that has been known for decades; 1 – 1/R0 = Herd Immunity Threshold. So if Delta has an R0 of 6 (which I doubt by the way; the CDC claims it but the UK data says no, it’s materially less but somewhat higher than the original R0 of 3.0 for Covid’s wild strain) then we get 1 – 1/x = 83% or, from basic algebra which any nurse or doctor damn well ought to be able to do you get -1/x = 0.83 – 1. You can solve that equation from here for the suppressed level of R0, right? This means that in May there was no national epidemic possible for an R0 of 5.88 or less unless the jabs don’t work or enhance disease. Mathematics was not wrong in the time of Galileo — he was right and the priests were full of crap — and it isn’t wrong now.

Civil war or a partition and divorce between the people of this nation? When those who are alleged “health” care workers and politicians are acting identically to those who persecuted Galileo because he scientifically proved the Earth was not the center of the universe, and who have as their high priests the very organization that multiplied the rate of a serious infectious disease by a factor of FIFTY by putting politics and pharma ahead of health resulting in the death of many people who are right now having tubes shoved down their throat and their veins filled with a damned dangerous drug, specifically remdesivir, and that results in a huge wave of DEATH then yeah, that’s where we’re headed unless they cut that crap out. There’s NO indication they will. I want nothing to do with these people and do not willingly engage with them. If they want to sit in a bar and drink beer where people who see it the other way and can be bothered to do basic algebra happen to be, that’s fine.

You have a right to be intentionally ignorant. I’m perfectly happy to consider such people nothing more or less than a large rock consuming an equal amount of space; that’s the peaceful option. You do you, I do me; leave me the Hell alone and I will do likewise. At worst you’ll get a smirk when you display said insanity in public on your clothing. But they’re not content to do that and leave me alone as I experienced once again last night. Not at all, and that’s the problem. If one group refuses to leave the other alone and repeatedly continues to accost the other on an escalating basis eventually those demanding you perform a dangerous act that, on the evidence and the fundamental laws of mathematics is making Covid worse are going to turn to violence and, when they do, that’s a one-way door as once THEY start that crap (and from the pattern of escalation it appears they will do exactly that) they will not be able to turn it back off.

Profit?!

Antibody Treatments For COVID Work. Why Aren’t They Being Promoted? (Glennon)

It’s perhaps the most effective way to save your life if you are infected with COVID-19, but probably the least known. It reduces the risk of even being hospitalized by 70% to 85%, though it must be administered early to be effective – within four days of infection. Lives probably are being lost unnecessarily because people don’t know about it. It’s monoclonal antibody treatment, abbreviated as mAb. To the extent the public has any familiarity with it they, may know it as Regeneron, though that’s actually the name of the company that makes the leading treatment, REGEN-COV2, and there are several other mAbs from other makers. Health authorities for months back should have been issuing this message constantly: “Immediately after being exposed or you have COVID symptoms, get tested and ask if an antibody treatment is right for you.”

But they didn’t. They still aren’t. At least not in Illinois and most of the nation. Why not? No reasonable explanation is evident and a significant number of lives may have been lost because of the failure to inform the public properly. And now, with antibody treatments getting more attention, the treatments must be rationed, adding to the tragedy. At least in part, the explanation is a sad one – politics, and politicized media. The effectiveness of REGEN and other antibody treatments has been known since at least November when the Food and Drug Administration granted emergency authorization for REGEN and another mAb. Earlier tests had found REGEN to be over 70% effective in heading off serious illness and multiple subsequent tests have confirmed it.

“Many of us were talking about this as early as March [2020]” wrote Scott Gottlieb, a former FDA commissioner. “Regeneron did extraordinary work to secure their own manufacturing, but we needed a concerted industrial effort to get the supply we needed.”

After the Israel data on waning efficacy, all of these numbers appear superfluous at best.

Big Gap Between Pfizer, Moderna Vaccines Seen (LAT)

Amid persistent concerns that the protection offered by COVID-19 vaccines may be waning, a report released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds that America’s workhorse shot is significantly less effective at preventing severe cases of disease over the long term than many experts had realized. Data collected from 18 states between March and August suggest the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine reduces the risk of being hospitalized with COVID-19 by 91% in the first four months after receiving the second dose. Beyond 120 days, however, that vaccine efficacy drops to 77%. Meanwhile, Moderna’s vaccine was 93% effective at reducing the short-term risk of COVID-19 hospitalization and remained 92% effective after 120 days.

[..] When the Moderna vaccine received emergency use authorization in December, the company reported that 30 people in its clinical trial developed severe cases of COVID-19, including nine who required hospitalization. All 30 patients were in the placebo group, resulting in a vaccine efficacy against severe disease of 100%. Ten people in Pfizer’s initial clinical trial developed severe cases of COVID-19. Nine of them was in the placebo group, including seven who were hospitalized, resulting in a vaccine efficacy against severe disease of 88.9%. Once the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines were rolled out to the public, their records of preventing COVID-19 hospitalizations in the first four months were neck and neck — 93% and 91% effective, respectively. But the degree of protection diverged after that.

When they focused specifically on the period 120 days beyond the second dose, the study authors found that the Moderna vaccine remained 92% effective at preventing COVID-19 hospitalizations. But the equivalent figure for the Pfizer vaccine was 77%. The results were published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are based on mRNA technology, which delivers temporary instructions to the body’s muscle cells that help it learn to recognize the spike protein, a key part of the coronavirus’ structure. But “they’re actually not necessarily interchangeable,” said Dr. Timothy Brewer, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at UCLA.

Each vaccine is formulated and administered differently, Brewer said, and those differences could affect the strength and duration of the two vaccines’ protection. Moderna’s shot contains 100 micrograms of vaccine, more than three times the 30 micrograms in the Pfizer shot. And Pfizer’s two doses are given three weeks apart, while Moderna’s two-shot regimen is administered with a four-week gap. Brewer also pointed to evidence that the Moderna vaccine seemed to elicit higher levels of a key antibody than the Pfizer vaccine. “We know from other studies the neutralizing antibody levels will decay over time, so starting at a higher level will mean that you have farther to go before you decay to a point where efficacy drops off,” he said.

How my local paper sees things.

Incensed Anti-Vaxxers (K.)

The recent anti-vaccination rallies in Athens and Thessaloniki were not the first of their kind, but they were the largest: From the usual attendance of a few dozen or even a couple of hundred protesters, these swelled to a more than a thousand – and that was still during the summer lull. The protesters were also more aggressive than usual, “anointing” the police with Molotov cocktails instead of incense.

The key weapon of the deniers – both on an ideological and material level – is the usual: saying “no” to everything, from the existence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to the use of masks, to social distancing and to vaccines. The vast majority – regardless of which faction of the movement they belong to – deny the coronavirus despite the 4 million people who have died of Covid-19 worldwide and its more than 14,000 victims in Greece. And where its existence is acknowledged, then it is explained away as a machination by the slyest of the world’s plotters to fulfill the age-old desire of getting rid of the Greeks and Greece and eking the Christianity out of Christendom by injecting microchips that tamper with the human DNA into people’s arms.

The mathematics of death mean even less to them than scientific explanations. They simply do not believe the numbers. Their faith is invested in other things – Christ and the Virgin Mother, in theory at least, given that their icons, along with massive crosses and Greek flags adorned with religious motifs, are part of their customary armor, embellished recently with a banner quoting dictator Georgios Papadopoulos’ “I believe.” Had they thrown in a couple of images of Alexander the Great, their rallies may have been confused with a typical gathering of “neo-Macedonians.” One can almost imagine it: the Macedonian king riding his steed Bucephalus beside Saint George on his horse, with the latter plunging his lance into the serpent and the former his sarissa into Bill Gates or George Sorros.

The deniers’ verbal armory is littered with sexist vulgarity, distributed between Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras. Yet this also fails to convince certain people that the real enemy is the failure of logic, religious fanaticism and intolerance, an aversion for science (which also stems from the machinations of the Slyest One) and idiotic conspiracy theories.

The vehement denial of the medical sciences and of reality we are witnessing among fanatical religious circles is not the only version of denial, but it is the only one that was born at the same time as Covid-19 – the others appeared along the way. For the past year-and-a-half, priests from the ranks of the Church of Greece’s hierarchy have been raising the banners of revolt, imagining themselves in their deluded minds as some modern-day monk Samuel defending the fortress of Kougi at Souli against the onslaught of the barbarians. There are worshippers at churches across the country who have never donned a mask, either because “Jesus saves” or the priest forbade it. Not to mention the government, which even now treats this part of society with kid gloves – like voters instead of deniers.

‘Angry aggressive young males (were) there to fight the police, not to protest about freedoms..’

Most Violent Covid Protests Yet Erupt In Melbourne (DM)

Anti-lockdown riots have erupted in Melbourne’s CBD with violent protesters overpowering police officers and storming the streets in defiance of the city’s stay-at-home orders. More than 1,000 demonstrators turned out in full-force to protest against the lockdown as they swarmed in front of traffic in Richmond, in the Victorian capital’s inner suburbs, on Saturday. Melbourne has spent 228 days in lockdown since since march 2020, and is set to notch up a grim world record for the most days spent under stay-at-home laws when it passes Buenos Aires on September 23. In Sydney 32 were arrested and 265 fines handed out as 2,000 police swarmed the city, while in Byron Bay 11 people were arrested at a 250-strong street protest.


Thousands more protested against lockdown restrictions and mandatory Covid vaccinations at large rallies in Brisbane and Perth. Some 2,000 officers were deployed at road checkpoints and barricades across Melbourne, and on roving patrols, to try to stop the rally going ahead in breach of public health orders. Police arrested 235 people and while most were taken away for breaching health directions, some were charged with assault, riotous behaviour and weapons and drug offences. Each will be fined $5,452, with 193 infringements handed out so far. Ten police were injured while dealing with the protests, with injuries including a broken elbow and broken nose, a broken finger and torn muscles. Six officers were taken to hospital. Commander Mark Galliott said bottles and stones were thrown at officers while an authorised vehicle was severely damaged. ‘Angry aggressive young males (were) there to fight the police, not to protest about freedoms,’ he told the media late on Saturday.

” I hope you are ready for a month of shocks to the system. ”

Look Ye, Shipmates — He Breaches! (Kunstler)

The overwhelming body of opinion for more than a year is that John Durham is a phantom doing next-to-nothing about the greatest political scandal in US history. If his efforts end with Mr. Sussmann, he will disgrace himself, of course, and that’s a possibility. But I would venture to suppose that it won’t end there. The insult to the nation of all the epic dishonesty is too grave, even potentially fatal — since it has enabled a depraved skein of additional seditious activities afterward, including the 2020 election subterfuge, the lawlessness of BLM and Antifa, the psychotic race-and-gender “Woke” mind-fuckery infecting the US military, the ongoing invasion across the US-Mexican border, all the coercion around Covid-19, especially “mandated” shots of a dangerous so-called “vaccine,” and the destruction of small business from sea to shining sea.

All of that has left the American public demoralized and economically savaged, and with the country’s standing in the world dangerously reduced. I hope you are ready for a month of shocks to the system. The deceit of the CDC and the FDA in gaming and cooking their Covid-19 data is now emerging from the fog of pandemic hysteria. I will also dare to conjecture that the number of recent and current Covid-19 “cases” turns out to be actually and overwhelmingly adverse reactions to the mRNA experiment, not the disease itself, and that holy hell will erupt among the public as it becomes understood that their livelihoods — and their health — are being stolen as part of this fraud.

A week from today, the Arizona election audit results are now scheduled to be released. Expect trauma. Tomorrow, a demonstration in support of the 1/6 political prisoners is on-board for Washington, DC. The potential for Deep State manipulation of the event is high, so stay away from it. There are enough other forces in motion now to throw a spanner in the engine of malice our government has become. Let Karma do its thing and hold on tight for a rough ride.

I Respected Mark Milley – But He Has Damaged Our Democracy (Kellogg)

Commenting on the recent events by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is not easy for me. For much of his career, Mark Milley served with distinction and honor. I worked hand-in-hand with him during my four years in the White House and I’d like to think we built a rapport based on mutual respect. It is hard to separate that man from the one who has emerged these last months, alongside the alleged actions he has not denied. Civilian control of the military is enshrined in our Constitution. Article 2, Section 2 is extraordinarily clear — a civilian leader, the elected president, is commander in chief. His senior advisers provide input toward decisions involving use of force and the role of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is to provide his best military advice. He is an advisor who executes the commander in chief’s commands, not the other way around.

Any action on the part of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs that gives the impression that he has traveled outside his lane, however slight, should be met with swift and severe recourse. This is not political; this is about the preservation of our democracy. Unfortunately, recent comments by many in the media, including retired military officials, appear to undermine that hard truth. They are trying to give Gen. Milley a pass, not because they believe this departure from norms is a good thing for our republic, but because they will support anything that portrays former President Donald Trump in a poor light. Such politicization of the responsibilities of the chairman and his critical role does this nation a disservice.

In my lifetime, I have seen military officials removed for overstepping their responsibilities. In fact, I’ve seen officers removed for things that bordered on the silly. The allegations against Milley are anything but. Unauthorized military discussions with a growing adversary about potential action sends a negative signal to an enemy. It conveys confusion, weakness, and calls into question our ability to control our military forces. It also implies that the military, in fact, calls the shots — not the commander in chief. Any undermining of the civilian control of the military is problematic; this was dangerous. Moreover, this call was made in the aftermath of a contentious election in the midst of a debilitating pandemic caused and perpetuated by the same country on the other end of the phone. In diplomatic relations, what s not said often carries as much weight as what is. Milley s alleged call communicated disarray.

Nothing was further from the truth. I was the longest serving senior national security official in the Trump White House. I was confident then, and confident now, that Trump was a commander in chief that we needed and served us well in multiple crises. You need only look at the fall of Kabul, the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan and our failure to coordinate with our allies, the tragic drone strikes that killed seven children rather than an ISIS-K member, and the French withdrawing their ambassador to see how far we ve fallen. Peace through strength is more than just a catchphrase. The Biden administration needs to hit the reset button in more ways than one. President Biden may have confidence in his chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but the American public no longer does.

France Accuses Australia, US Of ‘Lying’ In Escalating Crisis (Y!)

France on Saturday accused Australia and the United States of lying over a ruptured Australian contract to buy French submarines, warning a grave crisis was underway between the allies. Australia’s decision to break a deal for the French submarines in favour of American nuclear-powered vessels sparked outrage in Paris, with President Emmanuel Macron recalling France’s ambassadors to Canberra and Washington in an unprecedented move. The row has sparked a deep rift in America’s oldest alliance and dashed hopes of a post-Donald Trump renaissance in relations between Paris and Washington under President Joe Biden.

Speaking to France 2 television, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian gave no indication Paris was prepared to let the crisis die down, using distinctly undiplomatic language towards Australia, the United States and Britain, which is also part of the three-way security pact. “There has been lying, duplicity, a major breach of trust and contempt,” Le Drian said. “This will not do.” He described the withdrawal of the ambassadors for the first time in the history of relations with the countries as a “very symbolic” act that aimed “to show how unhappy we are and that there is a serious crisis between us”. But Australia has rebuffed French accusations of betrayal, with Defence Minister Peter Dutton insisting Canberra had been “upfront, open and honest” with Paris about its concerns over the deal.

On Sunday, Australian Finance Minister Simon Birmingham said his country had informed the French government “at the earliest available opportunity, before it became public”. He told national broadcaster ABC that it was “always going to be a difficult decision” to cancel the French deal. “We don’t underestimate the importance now of… ensuring that we re-establish those strong ties with the French government and counterparts long into the future,” he added. “Because their ongoing engagement in this region is important.” Le Drian also issued a stinging response to a question over why France had not recalled its ambassador to Britain, which was also part of the security pact that led to the rupture.

“We have recalled our ambassadors to (Canberra and Washington) to re-evaluate the situation. With Britain, there is no need. We know their constant opportunism. So there is no need to bring our ambassador back to explain,” he said. Of London’s role in the pact under Prime Minister Boris Johnson, he added with derision: “Britain in this whole thing is a bit like the third wheel.”

    “Commenting on the recent events by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is not easy for me.”

    Reply: then shut up. Don’t do it

    “For much of his career, Mark Milley served with distinction and honor.”

    Reply: Says who? Perhaps he engaged actions along the lines of Adm. Jeremy Boorda and Adm. Don Arthur. His chestful of individual medals suggests Milley may have personally authored quite a few of those citations allotted to Milley at a pace of one every ~1.7 years. Get the Army’s CID and Board of Corrections to investigate.

    “I worked hand-in-hand with him during my four years in the White House and I’d like to think we built a rapport based on mutual respect.”

    Reply: so what? In your qualified criticism of Milley, you simply demonstrated cronyism which shouldn’t convey a pass on your buddy and exposes your purposeful misunderstanding of the UCMJ and Manual for Courts-Martial equal in depth and breadth to Milley’s criminal ignorance. The latter is a damn site to behold in 3-star and 4-star Generals but perhaps evidence of impoverished ROTC training at Santa Clara University and Yale. Who knows…

    “It is hard to separate that man from the one who has emerged these last months, alongside the alleged actions he has not denied.”

    Reply: no, it’s not hard. So STFU, with all due respect, General. Isn’t that how senior enlisted leaders convey with impunity their disrespect and contempt towards commissioned officers?

    “In my lifetime, I have seen military officials removed for overstepping their responsibilities. In fact, I’ve seen officers removed for things that bordered on the silly”

    Reply: so what did you do to reverse the injustice, reinstate the officer, and set a good example for good behaving Lt. Generals like yourself. You are a creature of the system and can’t be trusted any more than your piss poor judgement about Milley.

    Here is another reason for not taking the vaccine – on grounds of principle.

    I want to fight for the principles I believe in – even if they are crazy. I believe that fraudulent, criminal, profiteering corporations such as those we have in big pharma should not be supported by me. I also don’t want to get my carrots at the local farmer’s market from the guy who raped teenage girls or my eggs from the young lady who steals money from the thrift shop. I am prepared to get the coff if it means my crazy moralising is upheld.

    I also understand I support wrong doers financially every day – every time I fill up the tank. But I would seek to limit my exposure to the voluminous aid the nasty rentier class seek.

    Worried Oh Well https://www.johndayblog.com/2021/09/worried-oh-well.html

    Charles Hugh Smith:
    Here is America in a nutshell: we no longer solve problems, we manipulate the narrative and then declare the problem has been solved.
    Actually solving problems is difficult and generally requires sacrifices that are proportionate to one’s wealth and power. But since America’s elite are no longer willing to sacrifice any of their vast power for the common good, sacrifice is out in America unless it can be dumped on wage earners. But unfortunately for America’s elite, four decades of hidden-by-manipulation sacrifices have stripmined average wage earners, and so they no longer have anything left to sacrifice.
    ​ ​Enter the Ministry of Manipulation, which adjusts the visible bits to align with the narrative that the problem has been fixed and the status quo is godlike in its technocratic powers. All this manipulation doesn’t actually solve the problems, it simply hides the decay behind gamed statistics, financial trickery and glossy PR. The problems fester until they break through the manipulated gloss and the public witnesses the breakdown of all the systems that were presented as rock-solid and forever.

    ​ I have been noticing that what should be a smallish third wave of COVID cases and deaths in Texas, is anything but small. Cases are not dropping like a rock, to mimic their rise.The rapid spread of Delta should give a rapid rise AND a rapid fall of cases if the susceptible population is getting used up by developing natural immunity. Natural immunity is still the gold standard for this coronavirus, no matter what is being advertised.
    It looks like something is feeding more susceptible people to the virus, so it can keep spreading, at a time when we should be reaching natural herd immunity. The actual number of infections is about 6 times the number of confirmed cases. It’s a pretty stable multiplier.
    The only intervention that looks big enough to make that large of a population influence is the vaccination campaign, which has included somewhere over half of Americans. There are mechanisms of antibody enhancement of viral pathogenicity. This has been found with fully tested vaccines, in the US, like the rotavirus vaccine, like the respiratory syncytial virus vaccine, and globally with the Dengue vaccine that killed so many children in 2015. They died when they got Dengue, a lot more than unvaccinated children died when they got dengue.
    This happened in all of the animal vaccine trials for SARS and MERS vaccines in the 2000s. All of the coronavirus vaccines caused more vaccinated animals to die than unvaccinated animals, when both groups were exposed to the virus.
    That was a “good” reason to NOT do animal testing on the current vaccines, and to give the manufacturers complete freedom from liability, through Emergency Use Authorizations, which is still how they are administered in the US, despite the Comirnaty-Pfizer bait-and-switch dance being performed.

    The SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant is poised to acquire complete resistance to wild-type spike vaccines
    Abstract: mRNA-based vaccines provide effective protection against most common SARS-CoV-2 variants. However, identifying likely breakthrough variants is critical for future vaccine development. Here, we found that the Delta variant completely escaped from anti-N-terminal domain (NTD) neutralizing antibodies, while increasing responsiveness to anti-NTD infectivity-enhancing antibodies. Although Pfizer-BioNTech BNT162b2-immune sera neutralized the Delta variant, when four common mutations were introduced into the receptor binding domain (RBD) of the Delta variant (Delta 4+), some BNT162b2-immune sera lost neutralizing activity and enhanced the infectivity. Unique mutations in the Delta NTD were involved in the enhanced infectivity by the BNT162b2-immune sera …

    Infection-enhancing anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies recognize both the original Wuhan/D614G strain and Delta variants. A potential risk for mass vaccination?
    Abstract​:​
    ​ ​Antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) of infection is a safety concern for vaccine strategies. In a recent publication, Li et al. (Cell 184 :4203–4219, 2021) have reported that infection-enhancing antibodies directed against the N-terminal domain (NTD) of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein facilitate virus infection in vitro, but not in vivo. However, this study was performed with the original Wuhan/D614G strain. Since the Covid-19 pandemic is now dominated with Delta variants, we analyzed the interaction of facilitating antibodies with the NTD of these variants. Using molecular modeling approaches, we show that enhancing antibodies have a higher affinity for Delta variants than for Wuhan/D614G NTDs. We show that enhancing antibodies reinforce the binding of the spike trimer to the host cell membrane by clamping the NTD to lipid raft microdomains. This stabilizing mechanism may facilitate the conformational change that induces the demasking of the receptor binding domain. As the NTD is also targeted by neutralizing antibodies, our data suggest that the balance between neutralizing and facilitating antibodies in vaccinated individuals is in favor of neutralization for the original Wuhan/D614G strain. However, in the case of the Delta variant, neutralizing antibodies have a decreased affinity for the spike protein, whereas facilitating antibodies display a strikingly increased affinity. Thus, ADE may be a concern for people receiving vaccines based on the original Wuhan strain spike sequence (either mRNA or viral vectors).

    ​ ​An advisory panel to the Food and Drug Administration on Friday recommended against approving a booster shot of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to most Americans.
    The scientific advisory committee voted 16-to-3 against recommending the additional shots, thwarting the Biden administration’s hopes that the FDA would approve the third shot in time to begin rolling out the extra dose for Pfizer recipients next week.
    However, the panel voted 18-0 in favor of recommending a booster shot for anyone over 65 or anyone who is at high risk of severe disease from COVID-19…​ ​Jonathan Sterne, a professor of medical statistics and epidemiology in the U.K., said his analysis of 76 different studies on the vaccines’ real world effectiveness found that a number of factors can skew the results, including how many unvaccinated people in a study have natural immunity from earlier COVID-19 disease. He cautioned against drawing conclusions from short-term results from booster shots, such as data from Israel which shows that a booster can strengthen protection for a few weeks in older adults.

    ​ ​“Fortunately, the vast majority of these individuals do not experience the extreme symptoms that those who are not fully vaccinated are experiencing when they are positive,” Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Toni Thompson told trustees.
    ​ ​“But it also shows you that for those who have been vaccinated for around six months, that they’re the ones that are most often showing up as positive again, which says something about the need to have access to boosters,” Thompson said.
    District officials estimate 90% of employees are vaccinated. More than half of the employees with breakthrough cases were vaccinated in January, February or March.​ ​​ Thanks Steve

    ​ ​The General Assembly has not exactly gotten off to a unified start.
    ​ ​Despite a letter from the US encouraging member states to call in virtually and help avoid creating “a super spreader event,” the speaker schedule for the General Debate — which begins on Tuesday — shows more than 100 heads of state and government coming in person, including UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and US President Joe Biden…
    ​ ​New York City requires proof of Covid-19 vaccination for indoor gatherings — a rule local authorities have asked the UN to follow. To facilitate compliance, a one-shot vaccination station will even be set up on-site. But visiting dignitaries are not proving entirely cooperative.
    (Brazil’s Bolsonaro ​already ​had COVID and has natural immunity. Russia’s Putin had Sputni​k​ vaccine, not on New York’s approved list.​ Who pokes whom?)​
    ​ ​Brazil and Russia are already giving their local hosts a poke in the eye, vocally rejecting the health requirement. “We strongly object that only people with a proof of vaccination should be admitted to the GA hall,” wrote Russia’s UN representative Vassily Nebenzia in a letter to the organization, according to state news agency TASS. Nebenzia also noted that not all countries use the vaccines approved in New York.
    ​ ​Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro threw down the gauntlet on social media, declaring point-blank on Thursday that he would not get vaccinated before the General Debate. He is due to address the assembly in person on Tuesday morning, in Brazil’s traditional role as the first speaker.

    Brazil’s Main COVID Strategy Is A Cocktail Of Unproven Drugs
    …In Brazil, where more than 488,000 people have already died due to COVID-19 — second only to the United States — pseudoscience has become government policy. Bolsonaro regularly promotes repurposing unproven and cheap drugs to his nearly 40 million social media followers as he continues to minimize the gravity of the pandemic and dismiss its victims. Meanwhile, his administration has spent millions of dollars to produce, purchase and promote pills such as the lice medication ivermectin, the antimalarial chloroquine and popular antibiotic azithromycin as well as anticoagulants, painkillers and a set of vitamins. The Ministry of Health and numerous doctors endorsed using a combination of these medications to treat COVID-19, even though there is no solid evidence that it works.

    Save Lives Now: Leaders will discuss how to solve the oxygen crisis in struggling nations by making life-saving therapeutics more widely available.
    Build Back Better: A reference to Biden’s domestic agenda, leaders will discuss partnerships to address emerging threats and the creation of a “sustainable health security financing mechanism,” per the White House.
    Calling the World to Account: Leaders will align on targets and discuss benchmarks to meet common goals.
    I’m sure Joe Biden will be a commanding presence on the world stage and get 70% of Africans vaccinated by the end of the year.​
    Still, there’s always the chance, the off chance, that all these world leaders might take some other tack.
    This would be the place and time to do it. The US just lost face pretty badly.

    A needed bit of humor. “The virus speaks” from an anon poster on JMG’s dreamwidth site. “I miss my bats.” 😀

    “Um,” [the coronavirus raises its hand] I’d like to say a few things.”

    “It’s not easy being a virus. In fact, it’s kind of a grifter life– you know, a grifter hops from town to town, one step ahead of the law, and I hop from host to host, one step ahead of the immune system.”

    “If I don’t make the hop before the immune system gets me or the host dies, then I die too. So I need to get really good at hopping, and I need to not shoot my host out from under me before I can get to a new one.”

    “Wuhan and Italy were pretty hairy, hosts dropping like flies, but I managed to make it out of there with a bit less virulence, and America’s been pretty good to me. Then I got to play in India and now I have an R0 of 5, woo-hoo! Jumping super powers.”

    “My ultimate goal is to become the 5th common cold virus. OK, wait, no, that’s a ‘good-enough’ goal. My ultimate goal is that I could just stay in a host, not hurting them, just kicking back in low numbers, and the host’s immune system would be all chill about it. Like it was in my bats. I miss my bats.”

    “I thought I was making some progress on that, too. Then you had to come up with this vaccine thing. A vaccine is bad enough, but a vaccine that then causes ADE?! Now that will make you all fragile as glass; hosts dropping out from under me if I breathe on them wrong! Augh! You all are such monkeys!” (sigh)

    Published Friday, June 4, 2021
    The U.S. health regulator authorized a lower dose of Regeneron Pharmaceutical’s COVID-19 antibody cocktail that can be given by injection, a move that could ease logistical challenges stemming from administering a higher dose intravenously.

    The therapy, REGEN-COV, and a similar treatment developed by rival Eli Lilly were being given through one-time infusion and required patients to be isolated.

    Regeneron had been working on a lower dose of its cocktail that can be given subcutaneously to address the challenges that have weighed on demand for antibody drugs.
    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration had in November authorized a 2,400 mg dose of REGEN-COV, administered as a single dose directly injected to a vein for non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients.

    The monoclonal antibody treatment, still in clinical trials, shows promise for people when used within 10 days of developing symptoms.

    RE: Kunstler piece: am appreciating his pointing at root causes without going Red/Blue, D/R, or L/R on us. He is so much more powerful when the focus is on the impacts/results first. We all know that this is not the “work” of one party and or individual, so how can we stay firmly in the accountability/RESPONSIBILITY track without blaming?

    It doesn’t take a way-back-machine to add 9/11, Iraq War, 2008 Financial crisis to the lineup below. We are rotten to the core until we wake up and start to do something about it.

    “The insult to the nation of all the epic dishonesty is too grave, even potentially fatal — since it has enabled a depraved skein of additional seditious activities afterward, including the 2020 election subterfuge, the lawlessness of BLM and Antifa, the psychotic race-and-gender “Woke” mind-fuckery infecting the US military, the ongoing invasion across the US-Mexican border, all the coercion around Covid-19, especially “mandated” shots of a dangerous so-called “vaccine,” and the destruction of small business from sea to shining sea. All of that has left the American public demoralized and economically savaged, and with the country’s standing in the world dangerously reduced.”

Once we all see it and agree the next question is : who is behind this?

    Booster shots for people who have natural immunity after a Covid infection?

    Appearing in the Lancet, “the first published clinical study of an anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccine in COVID-19 convalescents.

    It involves a single shot with “50 μg of the recombinant [not mRNA, not adenovirus vector] dimeric receptor binding domain [RBD]” vaccine developed in Cuba. The RBD is a part of the spike protein. (The Pfizer vax, by contrast, employs the full-length spike protein produced by the body in unknown quantities.) This Cuban vaccine also has thiomersal (or thimerosal), a mercury-based preservative, listed as one of the ingredients.

    Findings:
    No serious adverse events were reported. Minor adverse events were found, the most common, local pain: 3 (10%) and redness: 2 (6·7%). The vaccine elicited a > 21 fold increase in IgG anti-RBD anti- bodies 28 days after vaccination. The median of inhibitory antibody titres (94 ·0%) was three times greater than that of the COVID-19 convalescent panel. Virus neutralization titres higher than 1:160 were found in 24 (80%) participants. There was also an increase in RBD-specific T cells producing IFN- γand TNF- α.

    Interpretation:
    A single dose of the FINLAY-FR-1A vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 was an efficient booster of pre-existing natural immunity, with excellent safety profile.

    Who’d attracted Biden’s anger — the unvaccinated — was clear. The why was more confusing. The president decried how “the unvaccinated overcrowd our hospitals… leaving no room for someone with a heart attack or pancreatitis or cancer,” a legitimate enough point. But after reassuring those who’d “done their part” that just “one out of every 160,000 fully vaccinated Americans was hospitalized” this summer, Biden nonetheless explained that “a distinct minority of Americans” is “causing unvaccinated people to die.” He added: “We’re going to protect the vaccinated from unvaccinated co-workers.”
    Snippet from the Taibbi piece:

    “..As many noted, the statements were contradictory. If the vaccine really is that effective, the overwhelming consequences of of any failure to get vaccinated will be borne by the unvaccinated themselves. But Biden’s speech was as much about directing anger as policy. The mandate was an extraordinary step, but Biden’s unique — and uniquely strange — rhetorical setup, which framed the decision as a way to stop “them” from doing “damage” and killing “us,” was just as big a story..”

    “We now know that COVID-19 shares many features of common infectious respiratory diseases,”

    You’re kidding, right? We now know that we knew that Day 1, 700 days ago.

    “COVID-19 is evidently not an ‘extraterrestrial’ disease. It is a complex zoonotic disease”

    Maybe sort of, but the author of the U.N. bioweapons treaty said two years ago it was a genetically engineered bioweapon. That’s not zoonotic.

    “A complex disease cannot be solved through a simple, magic-bullet cure or vaccine.”

    Are you just using words here? What does “complex” mean? It’s actually an extremely simple disease, just as simple as all the others. I mean, does it have 100,000 genomes? No? Does it first cause leprosy, then cause rabies? No? It’s pretty simple.

    And they ignored all the parts that were always simple: It’s a coronavirus that has surface contact, and near-aerosol spread? Yup, everybody’s going to get it. …Says Herr Docktor in January 2020. Unless 100% of the planet is going to wear spacesuits from now on, NOTHING YOU DO WILL STOP IT. Ding ding ding! Really, really, REALLY simple virus. Following all the really, really simple rules they always have. Germ Theory: look it up some time.

    What we have are really, really, REALLY “dumb” experts. Which sadly seems to include all doctors and nurses now. Here Delta is untouched by the vaccine and has an R9 according to them, and they’re going to stop it by putting a towel on their head. And since it’s two years and stunningly contagious, nobody’s got it now, and nobody had it before and nobody has lasting natural immunity. Cause: Science! We know it’s dangerous and widespread cause no one got it, no one has it. Except for everyone.

    Yes. This is what official doctors all say. It’s really really simple: they’re all dumber than rocks. So dumb they make the dumb people look smart. Smart people do that a lot, unfortunately.

    Denmark: The left hates scandinavian medicine — it doesn’t cut off groceries for black people. I get tired of saying it, but what can I say? Is there any level that can break through?

    “vaccine efficacy drops to 77%.”

    Maybe they don’t know what a “vaccine” is? It causes “lasting” immunity? Not weekend immunity? Weekend immunity is aspirin, a “therapy,” etc.

    “But it also shows you that for those who have been vaccinated for around six months, that they’re the ones that are most often showing up as positive again, which says something about the need to have access to boosters,” Thompson said.”

    Or, for people past 3rd grade, that your Vaccine doesn’t work.

    “Saying “no” to everything, …to the use of masks, to social distancing”

    Like the other experts above, two years later hasn’t noticed they don’t work, every place they’re used is worse than every place they aren’t. But “Journalist” therefore “Uncurious” and “Illiterate”.

    “The real enemy is the failure of logic, religious fanaticism and intolerance, an aversion for science (which also stems from the machinations of the Slyest One) and idiotic conspiracy theories.”

    That certainly is the enemy. They, the reporters and doctors, should stop while they still can.

    Super disappointed about 9/18, but we got the headline that Trump was encouraging them to riot for him, and he did that by putting out a speech the days before telling the whole nation it was a scam, don’t go at all. Riot = Not Riot. Go = Not Go. P.S.: Trump who?

    But, reporters, so Open mouth, Lie fall out.

    “handed out as 2,000 police swarmed the city,”

    Reporters, so: Lie. How did police “Swarm” the city, good sir? Did they hire in 5x more from another city? Because otherwise it’s just the same police as ever, in the same amounts, on the same streets. Why would you use that word? What does it mean to you? Because it means nothing to me.

    “Angry aggressive young males (were) there to fight the police, not to protest about freedoms,’

    Haven’t you heard? Violence is just speech, communication of the dispossessed. They said so all summer.

    General-shaped-object Milley: Note if he calls the “all-clear” it gives temporary free reign to anything China wants to do: shoot protestors, take Hong Kong, invade Taiwan. That’s why it matters.

    pseudoscience has become government policy.”

Arrested for being a UFO-type radio host, unable to donate to his legal fund as they’re blocking access. …That’s what free and democratic nations do, along with free speech!

    The Namibian last week found that shelves stocking ivermectin in some Agra outlets nationwide, namely in Windhoek and at Gobabis, Okahandja and Ondangwa, have been emptied, as demand for the drug soared.”

    wes: totally agree. mr. trudeau thought he could lock it all in before the equinox, because any later and who knows what substances the fan will be distributing.

    i frankly hope they all lose the election. the guys at the local pizza place, in conjunction with the nice man who comes and fixes our drier and the friendly cashiers at the local timmys would form a much better government than this bunch of sociopaths from which we choose. never end a sentence preposition with.

    heck, even william shatner. ¡yeah! let’s get kirk. then canada would really kick butt, eh? we could defeat the gorn and venezuela at the same time!

    what a crapload of poo this country has become. shoot, even australia gets some cool stuff to go blast the chinese. all we get is mr. obama’s endorsement.

    whippy-doo…

    Solution: Most people cannot do simple math. Therefore, just give the cost, $0.35 trillion per year instead of 10 years
