Brilliant from Rolling Stone. More competition for Babylon Bee. They let this one slip away: “..prescriptions for ivermectin have increased 24-fold over pre-pandemic numbers. That amounts to more than 88,000 prescriptions for the drug issued between early July and mid-August of this year.” Those are prescriptions for human use. Safe, FDA approved. No horse to be seen.

Dave Collum says it best: “this story is total “horse shit”. Some hick in Oklahoma makes the claim that everybody is OD’ing on Ivermectin horse paste and every media picks up on the story. Horse shit. Complete horse shit. Good stock photo though: gun shot victims standing in line at the hospital while wearing winter coats in August. Total horse shit.”

Actually the photo used is: “People wait in line to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at Ebenezer Baptist Church, Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2021, in Oklahoma City.”

Gunshot Victims Wait as Horse Dewormer Overdoses Overwhelm Hospitals (RS)

The rise in people using ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug usually reserved for deworming horses or livestock, as a treatment or preventative for Covid-19 has emergency rooms “so backed up that gunshot victims were having hard times getting” access to health facilities, an emergency room doctor in Oklahoma said. This week, Dr. Jason McElyea told KFOR the overdoses are causing backlogs in rural hospitals, leaving both beds and ambulance services scarce. “The ERs are so backed up that gunshot victims were having hard times getting to facilities where they can get definitive care and be treated,” McElyea said. “All of their ambulances are stuck at the hospital waiting for a bed to open so they can take the patient in and they don’t have any, that’s it,” said McElyea.

“If there’s no ambulance to take the call, there’s no ambulance to come to the call.” People getting sick from ivermectin — especially as some people take a formulation of the drug used in livestock — has become so frequent that this month the Food and Drug Administration released a statement imploring Americans to stay away from the drug that has not been approved to treat or prevent Covid-19. “You are not a horse. You are not a cow,” the agency said while linking to an explainer about the dangers of ingesting ivermectin designed for livestock.

“Animal drugs are highly concentrated for large animals and can be highly toxic in humans,” the FDA cautioned. The agency went on to explain that although the medication is sometimes used in humans as a treatment for parasites or scabies, or in topical form to treat rosacea, the doses are much smaller than are given to livestock. Still, people have been going to feed stores and purchasing livestock doses of the drug, leading many stores to post warnings next to the ivermectin supply, cautioning it is not for use in humans. As people take the drug, McElyea said patients have arrived at hospitals with negative reactions like nausea, vomiting, muscle aches, and cramping — or even loss of sight. “The scariest one that I’ve heard of and seen is people coming in with vision loss,” the doctor said.

According to a health advisory issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on August 26, prescriptions for ivermectin have increased 24-fold over pre-pandemic numbers. That amounts to more than 88,000 prescriptions for the drug issued between early July and mid-August of this year. Even podcaster and anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist Joe Rogan bragged that he took ivermectin along with other experimental treatments after he tested positive for Covid-19. As a result of the drug’s increased publicity, calls to poison control centers nationwide regarding ivermectin have multiplied, as have hospital and emergency room visits, the CDC said.

India’s DNA COVID Vaccine Is A World First – More Are Coming (Nature)

India has approved a new COVID vaccine that uses circular strands of DNA to prime the immune system against the virus SARS-CoV-2. Researchers have welcomed news of the first DNA vaccine for people to receive approval anywhere in the world, and say many other DNA vaccines may soon be hot on its heels. ZyCoV-D, which is administered into the skin without an injection, has been found to be 67% protective against symptomatic COVID-19 in clinical trials, and will likely start to be administered in India this month. Although the efficacy is not particularly high compared to that of many other COVID-19 vaccines, the fact that it is a DNA vaccine is significant, say researchers.

It is proof of the principle that DNA vaccines work and can help in controlling the pandemic, says Peter Richmond, a paediatric immunologist at the University of Western Australia in Perth. “This is a really important step forward in the fight to defeat COVID-19 globally, because it demonstrates that we have another class of vaccines that we can use.” Close to a dozen DNA vaccines against COVID-19 are in clinical trials globally, and at least as many again are in earlier stages of development. DNA vaccines are also being developed for many other diseases. “If DNA vaccines prove to be successful, this is really the future of vaccinology” because they are easy to manufacture, says Shahid Jameel, a virologist at Ashoka University in Sonipat, India.

[..] ZyCoV-D contains circular strands of DNA known as plasmids, which encode the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, together with a promoter sequence for turning the gene on. Once the plasmids enter the nuclei of cells, they are converted into mRNA, which travels to the main body of the cell, the cytoplasm, and is translated into the spike protein itself. The body’s immune system then mounts a response against the protein, and produces tailored immune cells that can clear future infections. Plasmids typically degrade within weeks to months, but the immunity remains.

Hmmm. More spike proteins, or ivermectin?

Pfizer Develops Twice A Day ‘Covid Pills’ To Be Taken Alongside Vaccines (NP)

Pfizer is now developing a Covid pill that is designed to be taken alongside the vaccines that have already made the company vast amounts of money. The big pharma giant is so confident that their pills will be approved, and likely mandated, that it has started production before the clinical trials have even ended. National File reports: The new pill is expected to be released by the end of the year and will be required to be taken twice per day “Success against #COVID19 will likely require both vaccines & treatments,” Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said on Wednesday. “We’re pleased to share we’ve started a Phase 2/3 study of our oral antiviral candidate-specifically designed to combat SARS-CoV-2-in non-hospitalized, low-risk adults.”


Pfizer also put out a press release the same week that proclaimed, “If successful, [the drug] has the potential to address a significant unmet medical need, providing patients with a novel oral therapy that could be prescribed at the first sign of infection, without requiring hospitalization.” The company described the drug as an “investigational orally administered protease inhibitor antiviral therapy designed specifically to combat COVID–19 – in non–hospitalized, symptomatic adult participants who have a confirmed diagnosis of SARS–CoV–2 infection and are not at increased risk of progressing to severe illness, which may lead to hospitalization or death.”

“The FDA says ivermectin “can be dangerous and even lethal,” yet they approved it in 1998 and have not pulled it from the market despite it being “dangerous and lethal.”

Why All The Fuss About Ivermectin? (Joondeph)

What’s newsworthy about ivermectin? A simple Google search of most medications describes uses and side effects. A similar search of ivermectin provides headlines of why it shouldn’t be taken and how dangerous it is. The Guardian describes ivermectin as horse medicine reminding readers considering taking the drug, “You are not a horse. You are not a cow”, saying it’s a medicine meant for farm animals. The FDA echoed that sentiment in a recent tweet, adding “Seriously, y’all. Stop it”, their word choice making it obvious who the tweet was directed to. Perhaps the FDA didn’t realize that Barack and Michelle Obama often used the term “y’all” and that some might construe the FDA tweet as racist. The FDA says ivermectin “can be dangerous and even lethal,” yet they approved it in 1998 and have not pulled it from the market despite it being “dangerous and lethal.”

[..] Highly unvaccinated India had a surge in COVID cases earlier this year which abruptly ended following the widespread use of ivermectin, over the objections and criticism of the WHO. In the one state, Tamil Nadu, that did not use ivermectin, cases tripled instead of dropping by 97 percent as in the rest of the country. This is anecdotal and could have other explanations but the discovery of penicillin was also anecdotal and observational. Good science should investigate rather than ignore such observations. The Japanese Medical Association recently endorsed ivermectin for COVID. The US CDC cautioned against it. There is legal pushback as an Ohio judge ordered a hospital to treat a ventilated COVID patient with ivermectin. After a month on the ventilator, this patient is likely COVID free and ivermectin now will have no benefit, allowing the medical establishment to say “see I told you so” that it wouldn’t help.

By this point, active COVID infection is not the issue, instead it is weaning off and recovery from long term life support. The early hydroxychloroquine studies had the same flaw, treating patients too late in the disease course to provide or demonstrate benefit. These drugs have been proposed for early outpatient treatment, not when patients are seriously ill and near death. Looking for treatment benefit in the wrong patient population will yield expected negative results. Given how devastating COVID can be and how despite high levels of vaccination in countries like the US, UK, and Israel, we are seeing surging cases and hospitalizations among the vaccinated, we should be pulling out all the stops in treating this virus.

Medical treatment involves balancing risks and benefits. When FDA approved medications are used in appropriate doses for appropriate patients, prescribed by competent physicians, the risks tend to be low, and any benefit should be celebrated. Instead, the medical establishment, media, and regulatory authorities are taking the opposite approach. One has to wonder why.

Ivermectin, Potential Anticancer Drug Derived From Antiparasitic Drug (NIH)

IVM not only has strong effects on parasites but also has potential antiviral effects. IVM can inhibit the replication of flavivirus by targeting the NS3 helicase [17]; it also blocks the nuclear transport of viral proteins by acting on α/β -mediated nuclear transport and exerts antiviral activity against the HIV-1 and dengue viruses [18]. Recent studies have also pointed out that it has a promising inhibitory effect on the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which has caused a global outbreak in 2020 [19]. In addition, IVM shows potential for clinical application in asthma [20] and neurological diseases [21]. Recently scientists have discovered that IVM has a strong anticancer effect.

Since the first report that IVM could reverse tumor multidrug resistance (MDR) in 1996, a few relevant studies have emphasized the potential use of IVM as a new cancer treatment . Despite the large number of related studies, there are still some key issues that have not been resolved. First of all, the specific mechanism of IVM-mediated cytotoxicity in tumor cells is unclear; it may be related to the effect of IVM on various signaling pathways, but it is not very clear overall. Second, IVM seems to induce mixed cell death in tumor cells, which is also a controversial issue. Therefore, this review summarized the latest findings on the anticancer effect of IVM and discussed the mechanism of the inhibition of tumor proliferation and the way that IVM induces tumor programmed cell death to provide a theoretical basis for the use of IVM as a potential anticancer drug.

As the cost of the research and development of new anticancer drugs continues to increase, drug repositioning has become increasingly important. Drug repositioning refers to the development of new drug indications that have been approved for clinical use. For some older drugs that are widely used for their original indications and have clinical data and safety information, drug repositioning allows them to be developed via a cheaper and faster cycle and to be used more effectively in clinical use clinically. Here, we systematically summarized the anticancer effect and mechanism of IVM, which is of great significance for the repositioning of IVM for cancer treatment.

No, no, you heretic! You need both!

How (And Why) Israel Changed What “Fully Vaccinated” Means (OffG)

Israel has been at the forefront of the vaccination push ever since November 2020, when they signed agreements with Pfizer to run what were essentially medical experiments on their civilian population. They were the first country to roll out the Pfizer vaccine. They were the first country to try out the (since abandoned) “Green passes” system of medical segregation. And now they’re the first country to change the terms of the “get vaccinated and get your freedom back” contract. That’s right. Just as “three weeks to flatten the curve” turned into around 18-months (and counting), “double jabbed” is now evolving into “triple jabbed”. To quote Dr Salman Zarka, Israel’s “coronavirus czar”: “We are updating what it means to be vaccinated,”

So, there you have it. In Israel, officially, those who have been injected with two doses of Pfizer’s so-called vaccine are no longer counted as vaccinated. What does this mean? Well, first of all, it means all those “vaccinated” people can kiss their recently acquired freedoms goodbye, unless they’re willing to get at least one more booster. According to the Wall Street Journal [paywalled article]: “Holders of Israel’s vaccine passports must get a third dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine within six months of their second dose, or lose the so-called green pass that allows them more freedom.” It should also be noted that the third booster is not considered the last. The Israeli Ministry of Health “has not ruled out further boosters in the future” and the third shot will only extend the “vaccinated” status for six months, not permanently.

So, essentially, the precedent has been set that your freedoms are the state’s to take away on a whim. And, if you comply, they will simply use your compliance as an excuse to take even greater liberties (pun very much intended). Israel has been the Petri dish for this since the beginning. If it works there, expect the “booster shot requirement” to be instituted in other countries all over the world fairly quickly. To all the people who have taken the vaccine, and are now realising they may have done something foolish. Sorry, but we did try to warn you this would happen. Financially speaking, this is yet another boon in a golden year for Pfizer, who can now ship even more doses of their experimental and unnecessary gene therapy to people who are literally legally obliged to use it. If you don’t want to take the jab, just take some of Pfizer’s new magic anti-Covid pills instead.

So don’t worry about the death of freedom and democracy in the name of an almost-completely-harmless disease. At least the Pfizer shareholders can afford that second private island and golden costumes for their human chess sets.

“..the impact of the symptoms may be no worse than those seen in children who have not actually had Covid..”

The Guardian is confident they will be jabbed anyway.

Covid Jabs For UK Children: A Very Tight Decision That Could Be Overruled (G.)

It was, the scientists said, a very finely balanced decision. On the one hand, Covid vaccines undoubtedly help to reduce infection and illness. On the other, Covid vaccines – like every other vaccine in medical history – are not without their risks. In children aged 12 to 15, the threat of serious Covid is tiny, but so is the risk of serious side-effects from the vaccine. After much deliberation, the government’s independent vaccine advisers concluded that, on the strength of evidence so far, there was a marginal benefit to vaccinating healthy children aged 12 to 15 years old. But that benefit was deemed so very marginal the advisers would not give the green light to mass vaccination of healthy children in the age group.

Instead, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) broadened out the existing group of 12- to 15-year-olds eligible for Covid vaccination. Beyond the extremely vulnerable who have already been called forward for shots, the JCVI drew on research from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health to include children with major, chronic heart, lung, kidney and neurological conditions. Children with sickle cell disease and type I diabetes will also be eligible. Under the new guidance, about 200,000 of the 4 million or so UK children aged 12 to 15 will now be eligible for Covid jabs. To support its case, the JCVI released data on the risks the children faced. While healthy children aged 12 to 15 are admitted to intensive care with Covid at a rate of about two per million, among those in the vulnerable group the risk is more than 100 per million.

The JCVI discussed the potential risk of long Covid in children – the fatigue and other debilitating symptoms that can persist for months – but concluded that while some children did have continuing symptoms, the issue was less common than in adults. Moreover, it believes the impact of the symptoms may be no worse than those seen in children who have not actually had Covid, but experience the same ailments. Another factor that acted against a decision to vaccinate all 12- to 15-year-olds is that the jabs are not spectacularly effective at preventing transmission now the Delta variant is dominant.

But the JCVI’s recommendation is not the final word. Throughout the pandemic, the government has happily followed the committee’s advice. The expert group is considered to have made sound judgments on delaying second doses and the order in which people should be called forward for immunisation. This time, the government may break with that tradition. The four chief medical officers (CMOs) of England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland have been asked to hold their own expert meeting next week on the question of Covid vaccines for secondary school pupils. There is a strong possibility they will reach a different conclusion.

I bet you cannot take 500 ambulance workers out of the system for very long.

Almost 7,000 Unvaccinated Greek Healthcare Workers Remain Suspended (K.)

Almost 6,500 health care workers and 500 ambulance service members have been suspended from their jobs over their failure to meet a deadline to vaccinate themselves against Covid-19, the health minister said on Friday. Thanos Plevris told MPs that of the 6,412 healthcare workers who are suspended for not getting vaccinated, 5,594 work in hospitals and 818 in primary health care. Of the 500 suspended ambulance service staff, 400 belong to the crews. The minister said that the fact that 400 health care workers received the vaccine on Monday, a few days before the deadline, showed that the government’s decision to make vaccinations compulsory for hospital workers was having an effect. One hospital went from having a 35% vaccination rate among staff to 87%, he said. He added that next week an amendment would be tabled to would allow health workers who have given the first dose of the vaccine to return to work.

Unvaccinated MPs Won’t Be Barred From Greek Parliament (K.)

Parliament Speaker Konstantinos Tasoulas said on Friday there are five or six deputies who are still unvaccinated. According to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency, Tasoulas told reporters that the unvaccinated MPs are from two parties. He also stressed that unvaccinated MPs will not be barred from entering Parliament, but will have to submit the results of two coronavirus tests each week. As for parliamentary staff, he said that about 90% of them have been vaccinated.

Indiana Health Care System Suspends 280 Employees For Refusing Vaccine (JTN)

IU Health, the largest health care provider in Indiana, has announced it suspended close to 300 employees who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 or have not gotten an exemption. The provider specified Friday it was “approximately 280” individuals who were suspended on Wednesday. The suspension is to last two weeks, during which those employees can either get the vaccine or request an exemption. Those who have not complied with the company’s vaccine mandate after the two-week suspension are to be fired. IU Health is a private, not-for-profit company. It owns and operates 16 hospitals in the state, including its flagship hospital, IU Health Methodist Hospital, in Indianapolis. The company also has hospitals in Carmel, Fishers, Muncie, Lafayette and Bloomington.

It’s unclear whether the suspension of close to 300 employees will affect patient care at IU Health. The company has more than 35,000 employees statewide. “Many of the team members who are non-compliant are not clinical or front-line healthcare workers,” a spokesperson for IU Health said Friday in an email, declining to say exactly how many of the suspended employees are front-line health care workers. The news of the suspensions came the same day IU Health announced it was temporarily halting all elective surgeries and procedures, effective Monday, citing an increase in the number of COVID-19 patients because of the delta variant. IU Health was the first major health care organization in the state to announce it was mandating employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19. More than 500 employees held a protest and rally in downtown Indianapolis on June 12.

Traci Staley, the organizer of the protest and founder of the group United Against Mandates, said Friday many people rallied together over the past three months to help IU Health employees who didn’t want to get the vaccine to obtain an exemption. A lot of them, she said, didn’t know an exemption was even an option. “We just really pushed in the group, ‘Hey, this is your constitutional right,’ ” Staley said. Initially, Staley said, IU Health was giving people a hard time when they asked for a religious exemption, asking them to explain their religious beliefs. “They denied tons of exemptions,” Staley said. “I think later on, it got to the point where they realized people were going to fight back,” Staley said, explaining many employees emailed the company’s human resources department, citing their religious freedom under the First Amendment.

Rare. Does the word have any meaning left?

EU Watchdog Reviews Reports Of Rare Body Inflammation After Vaccinations (RT)

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has announced it is reviewing a possible link to a rare inflammatory condition following the administration of coronavirus vaccines after a case was reported post Pfizer shot. In a statement on Friday, the agency announced that an investigation is underway by its Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC) to determine whether there is a risk of “multisystem inflammatory syndrome” (MIS) following inoculation against Covid-19. The assessment follows after a 17-year-old boy in Denmark received a shot of Pfizer/BioNTech’s Covid-19 vaccine and subsequently complained of the condition. The EMA describes the syndrome as “a serious inflammatory condition affecting many parts of the body and symptoms can include tiredness, persistent severe fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, stomach pain, headache, chest pain and difficulty breathing.”


MIS has been reported among people who contracted the coronavirus. The young patient in question, however, had not suffered with Covid-19 before and has fully recovered after his bout of the rare condition. According to the EMA, the pre-pandemic incidence rate of the syndrome was around two to six cases per 100,000 per year in young people below 20 years of age, based on estimates from five European countries. The number was even lower in adults aged 20 and over, registering less than two cases. A small handful of other incidences of the syndrome have been reported in the European Economic Area, after Moderna’s Spikevax vaccine and Johnson & Johnson’s single-shot jab. The medical watchdog, however, has not changed its recommendations for Covid-19 vaccinations.

“..we need to make GloboCap (and its minions) go openly totalitarian … because it can’t.”

The Covidian Cult Part III (CJ Hopkins)

Seriously, think about where we are currently, 18 months into our new “reality,” then go back and review how GloboCap blatantly rolled out the New Normal in the Spring of 2020 … and the majority of the masses didn’t even blink. They seamlessly transitioned to the new “reality” in which a virus, rather than “white supremacists,” or “Russian agents,” or “Islamic terrorists,” had become the new official enemy. They put away the scripts they had been reciting verbatim from for the previous four years, and the scripts they had been reciting from for the previous 15 years before that, and started frantically jabbering Covid cult-speak like they were auditioning for an over-the-top Orwell parody.

Which brings us to the problem of the Covidian cult … how to get through to them, which, make no mistake, we have to do, one way or another, or the New Normal will become our permanent “reality.” I called the New Normals a “Covidian Cult,” not to gratuitously insult or mock them, but because that is what totalitarianism is … a cult writ large, on a societal scale. Anyone who has tried to get through to them can confirm the accuracy of that analogy. You can show them the facts until you’re blue in the face. It will not make the slightest difference. You think you are having a debate over facts, but you are not. You are threatening their new “reality.” You think you are struggling to get them to think rationally. You are not. What you are is a heretic, an agent of demonic forces, an enemy of all that is “real” and “true.”

The Scientologists would label you a “suppressive person.” The New Normals call you a “conspiracy theorist,” an “anti-vaxxer,” or a “virus denier.” The specific epithets don’t really matter. They are just labels that cult members and totalitarians use to demonize those they perceive as “enemies” … anyone challenging the “reality” of the cult, or the “reality” of the totalitarian system. The simple fact of the matter is, you can’t talk people out of a cult, and you can’t talk them out of totalitarianism. Usually, what you do, in the case of a cult, is, you get the person out of the cult. You kidnap them, take them to a safehouse or wherever, surround them with a lot of non-cult members, and deprogram them gradually over the course of several days. You do this because, while they are still inside the cult, you cannot get through to them. They cannot hear you.

[..] We need to make Jim Jones drop the peace-and-love crap, move into the jungle, and break out the Kool-Aid. We need to make Charles Manson put down his guitar, cancel orgy-time, and go homicidal hippie. This is how you take down a cult from within. You do not try to thwart its progress; you push it toward its logical conclusion. You make it manifest its full expression, because that it when it implodes, and dies. You do not do that by being polite, conciliatory, or avoiding conflict. You do that by generating as much internal conflict within the cult as you can. In other words, we need to make GloboCap (and its minions) go openly totalitarian … because it can’t. If it could, it would have done so already. Global capitalism cannot function that way. Going openly totalitarian will cause it to implode … no, not global capitalism itself, but this totalitarian version of it.

“It ends when you go back outside.”

It Ends When You End It (CWT)

There is a universal feeling among people that the world has gone mad. People in supposedly “Free, Western” countries are being locked in their houses for months, have their fundamental human rights stripped from them, and treated like criminals with no trial, no due process, and no charges. The sacred principle our society has been built upon – “Innocent until proven guilty” – has now been reversed. You are no longer free to act at your own will, because your will is now said to pose a risk to others. It is not enough anymore to respect others’ rights; you are now also obliged to subjugate yourself to their fears.

So welcome to what is known as “clown world,” the world where most people are living today. A world where conspiracy theories are just spoilers. A world where “science” is based on unquestionable blind faith. A world where the TV is the sole arbiter of truth. A world where going outside is equated with murder. A world where wishing to live your life is selfish but desiring to control the lives of others is benevolence. In short, a world where logic has been replaced by emotions and common sense is no longer common.

Madness has been rapidly spreading around the world, and we now must face the question of how to end it? How do we exit clown world? How do we get our lives back? My answer to that is this: it ends when you end it. What I mean by that is quite simple, if you want to get back to normal, you cannot wait for permission to do so but must start living normally. It ends when you go back outside. It ends when you go and meet other people. It ends when you start traveling again. It ends when you refuse to “show your papers.” It ends when you smile at people instead of hiding from them in fear. It ends when you start to think for yourself instead of letting the TV think for you. It ends when you end it.

“The pharmaceutical lobbying group known as the American Medical Association called this week for an “immediate end” to the use of ivermectin to treat Covid-19. They forbid member doctors to prescribe it.”

Coiling and Rattling (Kunstler)

I prefer to label it the long emergency, simply the endgame of the techno-industrial hypertrophic phase of history. You could see it coming from a hundred months away, but now that it’s here, Western Civ has turned from tragedy to farce to psychosis. The pharmaceutical lobbying group known as the American Medical Association called this week for an “immediate end” to the use of ivermectin to treat Covid-19. They forbid member doctors to prescribe it. They follow the CDC and the FDA in condemning the drug, sentencing it to the ducking stool… burning it at the stake! “Use of ivermectin for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 has been demonstrated to be harmful to patients,” they say.

They lie, of course. And they want all the doctors to lie. How many of them will go along to get along? Do they care if this psychotic nonsense destroys what remains of medical practice just as race-and-gender studies have destroyed higher ed? One not-so-distant day the docs will show up for work, but the overgrown hospitals will be out of business, doors shuttered, and the docs will be back to making house-calls with a little black bag… no more German cars for you… and maybe a chicken in exchange for a little bootleg Ivermectin, if you’re lucky! As it happens, I take the veterinary-grade Ivermectin myself as a prophylactic, because that’s all you can get easily around here. I haven’t felt better in years. Perhaps I had pinworms (Enterobius vermicularis). Anyway, I don’t have Covid. I also take Vitamin D3 and zinc. Anathemize that, you chiseling bastards!

Everybody I consort with has had enough of the whole nauseating game — the lying politicians, the lying media, the lying medical bureaucrats, the lying generals, the lying teachers, the lying celebrities, the lying tech moguls, the entire armature of counter-reality you want to impose on a once-fair land. We will never do your bidding. We will never peel your grapes. There are more of us than you. Go ahead, push just a little bit harder.

“He has been called “anti-science” and “a purveyor of misinformation” for not dropping dead..”

Joe Rogan Criticized As ‘Anti-Science’ For Surviving COVID (BBee)

Progressives have expressed their anger across the country as another person, Joe Rogan, recovered from COVID and did not die, harming their preferred narrative about the deadliness of the virus and what kind of treatments should be used. He has been called “anti-science” and “a purveyor of misinformation” for not dropping dead. Despite not agreeing 100% with everything the left believes about the pandemic, lockdowns, vaccines, mandates, and masks, Rogan survived and is reportedly feeling great, doing incredible damage to all the progress we have made getting people to believe the science. “It’s straight-up anti-science is what it is,” said Huxley Burnsides of Portland, Oregon. “We should outlaw people surviving from COVID, especially those who disagree with me.” At publishing time, the author of this article was praying he does not regress and die because that’d be really embarrassing and also people dying is bad.

    Well, that’s what happens when with financialization, debt based monetary system and the resulting insider rentier, government-protected monopoly fiefdoms.

    Extinction” Well amphibians are known to be seriously harmed by glyphosate. Did these loving, caring “developed” nations – the ones that have bombed brown people worldwide continuously since 1950 – outlaw or even slow down the use of glyphosate? Not on your life. They doubled, tripled, quadrupled. And that’s waaaaaay easier, and completely non-controversial compared to the rather abstract CO2 theory. It won’t even hardly kill anyone with crop reductions if they try it! Probably why they don’t.

    So these are not serious people. They are clown people, who care for nothing: not frogs, not children, not even themselves. They are frauds, and incapable of the simplest actions and are overwhelmingly obvious in doing so.

    This is also why non-woke, non-environmental people mock and berate them, their 5000sqft houses at sea level, their 300 days a year jet-setting, their transoceanic voyages, and their 3,000 mile ceasar salads at the French Laundry. Walk the walk. Or walk the plank, which is my preference.

    Two anecdotes today, one from NY Times reporter, takes his daughter to the doctor for a high fever. Doctors aren’t wearing a mask and tell him “why would we? We’re vaccinated.” Man flees his doctor, taking his fevered daughter away from medical care. Okay, um, aren’t you the guys following the Science and your Doctor’s advice? YOUR Doctor – not some suspicious doctor on the internet, head of cardiology or something – just told you medically you’re okay. So you, New York Times reporter, not-doctor, are believing…who exactly? Anybody online BUT your primary care doctor? And believe it so strongly your daughter could have complications of high fever? And they think the RIGHT are conspiracy theorists. They’ve truly, truly gone insane.

    Next personal: Man shows up at doctor, there’s a mask requirement. When the doctor arrives he says, “Doc, why do you do this? The masks don’t work anyway.” Doctor says “I know. We do it anyway.” Wait: what? We now do, in fact we REQUIRE, what is known and agreed to be medically useless? Should I wear buffalo horns on my head too? What the…? It’s different if you have a doctor who for some unscientific reason still believes it. But this doctor DOESN’T believe it and says, “We are requiring the dumb and superstitious thing anyway.” That’s today’s medicine. And “law.” (Which is also “not law”.)

    From yesterday’s Julius, “it was 100% inevitable and 100% predictable that these vaccines would never be capable of eradicating this coronavirus” As the Docktor said, but also that no lockdown measure would work. How did I know that? I didn’t: I quoted the CDC. If over 1%, and you know, R5 or something, it’s not possible to contain. This CDC data has proven accurate as the CDC, and now en-maddened, insane, reality-free planet totally ignore all previous studies and protocols, including those by the CDC and WHO, including that they no longer feverishly pulling vaccines that harm so many as 100.

    Now they claim R9 (no doubt falsely, as it’s essentially all the same virus and LESS deadly) and STILL claim both all measures that failed every minute of every day for 2 years — just as the CDC said — will now work, AND that it’s so contagious that no one has got ever it and has natural immunity. Everyone says “okay”. It’s inexplicable. Supernatural. Clearly words and ideas have no meaning, no reality to them, as the whole world acts as if they don’t believe a single word of their own “Narrative”. That’s a certain sign of crazy people.

    How (And Why) Israel Changed What “Fully Vaccinated” Means”

    It means “Do what you’re told” or you’ll never get your freedoms back. Not EVEN after 3 doses. You’re grounded: Go to your room. Mommy loves you! Mommy knows best!

    Mama’s gonna make all of your nightmares come true
    Mama’s gonna put all of her fears into you
    Mama’s gonna keep you right here under her wing
    She won’t let you fly but she might let you sing
    Mama’s gonna keep baby healthy and clean” –Pink Floyd

    “anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist Joe Rogan” Uh…what? I’ll give you $100 if he’s not been vaccinated many, many times. But hey: open mouth, lie comes out. We just say things. Not TRUE things, of course, but made-up things we WANT to be true. Truthiness!

    “the fact that it is a DNA vaccine is significant, say researchers. It is proof of the principle that DNA vaccines work”

    Just reminding that these guys said, “Hey, can we cure diseases, mental illnesses like people believing in God and not doing what they’re told? Probably that’s a physical brain-trait that can be erased.” So I can see why they’re excited.

    “The big pharma giant is so confident that” They have complete control of bribing the regulators, that they produce medicines before they’ve been approved or even tested. Fixed it.

    The Guardian is confident they will be jabbed anyway.” Why shouldn’t they? They’ve never tested medicines before approving them before. What part of “wholly owned” and “Merger of corporation and state regulator” do you not understand?

    “I bet you cannot take 500 ambulance workers out of the system for very long.”

    Sure you can. It’s just another way to make everyone die and turn them against each other. Every human death is a win for oligarchs.

    “Indiana Health Care System Suspends 280 Employees for Refusing Vaccine (JTN)”

    Same. Excellent, there was a doctor and nursing shortage for years before now, increased by Obamacare, (paperwork) and going back to 1992 when the government first started getting involved and really “helping”. Gosh, if only we had the number of beds and open hospital we had then! But they’re all consolidated by merger-of-corporation-and-state government-protected oligarchic monopolies and shut down leaving no beds and no competition. Then Covid! Cuomo opened no beds! Zero! After closing 10% of NY capacity even in his short term. AND all the mental hospitals. And nurses….pffft! Not only none of those, less than ever, but holding out on inter-state nursing license agreements so you can’t even borrow them. Remember, every nurse that retires, every human that dies, Cuomo and pals pure win! And so with all other states too. As Xi said, “After this, you all will be far richer.” Yes, because we’ll pull out your gold teeth and divide your stuff. That’s just common sense. …If you’re a sociopath.

    “Rare Body Inflammation After Vaccinations (RT)”

    “Rare” that the cardiologist study said happens every time with every spike protein. But as Deflationista says, if you don’t like that study, it no longer exists! The only studies that exist are the ones I SAY exist, so it’s Science as expression of personal POWER. As per MONEY.

    “usually reserved for deworming horses or livestock”, …or winning Nobel prizes in Japan for previous incurable diseases, or commonly prescribed among humans billions of times worldwide, even in America, so dangerous they give it to whole floors for things as placid as scabies. I mean, either way, right? I mean, Prize winning safe human drug, discredited animal homeopathy, to-MAY-to, to-MAH-to, black, white; right, wrong, they’re all the same, right?
    “We’re an empire now and we create our own reality.”

    Hey, did they even find ONE person who was in trouble from this? Because the “70%” turned out to be one guy poison control referred on the phone, but may or may not have ever bothered to come in ’cause he wasn’t really sick.

    “The FDA says ivermectin “can be dangerous and even lethal,” …which it why it’s available over the counter in superstitious un-medical backwaters like Paris. Oh and has what, 30M doses daily worldwide with the U.S. military?

    …From the Docktor, eating “horse carrots” and drinking “horse sugar” in his coffee, wrapped in a “horse blanket” and using a “horse comb”, after using “horse shampoo”, while brushing his teeth with “horse toothpaste.” Later on, I may go walk in the “horse grass” and bask in the “horse sun” breathing “horse air.” We’re all horses now.

    ^^Good one, Raul.

    Good stock photo though: gun shot victims standing in line at the hospital while wearing winter coats in August. Total horse shit.”

    Actually the photo used is: “People wait in line to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at Ebenezer Baptist Church, Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2021, in Oklahoma City.” Yeah, he was mocking the fact that it would be kinda hard for them to get a photo of gunshot victims waiting for service since…even if that were theoretically possible, it didn’t happen.

    I believe there are various codes and other ways emergency rooms prioritize who they see first, unless they do it differently in Oklahoma–although according to Chris Martenson that state actually has very detailed records of Covid cases. If you’ve ever gone to an emergency room with a non-life-threatening issue, you know you can be there a while before you get seen. They take car accident cases, people with heart attacks and strokes, stabbing victims before they attend to your broken arm or nausea from ingesting too much Ivermectin.

    Ironic that they are claiming Ivermectin causes blindness.

    Re: Pfizer pills. This would make the Ivermectin Will Kill You and Make You Blind stories make more sense. Along with a board member “conceding” that natural immunity should be considered (gee, ya think) I believe they may be laying the groundwork for a transition to “VACCINES++” protocol.

    Hey y’all, vaccines are the first line of defense and absolutely required for your survival, but as we’ve said all along, they do not provide complete protection. But the one-two punch of our Comirnaty booster plus our Covquillity pill 2x a day will keep the intubator away! Talk to your provider now! Operators are standing by!

    Apologies for not mentioning who posted this link, too time-consuming to search through previous comments. But it calmly lays out the indisputable facts that should have been obvious from Day 1. It’s not the kind of illness that can be “defeated” by vaccinations–OR natural immunity. Humans simply have to find ways to mitigate the most harmful effects and let it mutate into an even more benign form, like every virus before it. This includes looking at existing drugs that do not have a long list of side effects as well as developing new formulations.
    https://www.juliusruechel.com/2021/09/the-snake-oil-salesmen-and-covid-zero.html?m=1

    Vaccines should be reserved for the same demographic that lines up for the flu shots every year, plus anyone deemed to have comorbidities that put them at risk, or anyone fearful of trusting their own immune system.

    By the way, in one of Martenson’s videos, it seemed to me that he was implying that the Delta variant could have been a lab manipulation. Anybody catch that?

    It’s becoming obvious that the medical establishments, world media, and many governments have lied so heavily through all this that they will simply not even attempt to walk it back, but will continue to plow ahead. We’ve already seen this tactic employed with RussiaGate, the Ukraine situation, Hunter Biden’s criminality and depravities, and so on.

    This is the new normal. And the fear factor of Covid has now created a kind of Stockholm syndrome between the populace and those manipulating the narrative–once you’ve been injected, you can’t unvax yourself, so you form an even tighter bond to those who misled you and pressured you, despite all logic pointing out the fallacies of this position.Your psychological defense mechanisms create a benevolence in the authorities that is for the most part not there.

    On a visit to my doctor about a minor leg injury:
    Me: If I get sick with covid, would you prescribe me Ivermectin?
    Dr: Absolutely, not! (Goes on reciting CDC website mentioning horse paste and dangerous.)
    Me: (taken back, stammer) after millions of doses over quite a few decades, no safety problem.
    Dr: (crickets)

    I do ask for a Vit D test after disclosing that I take 5K IUs daily, a few weeks later I get a call from the office staff:
    Staff: The Dr wants you to stop taking Vit D.
    Me: What level did the test measure for me?
    Staff: (after a short delay) 101

    So looking it up on the NIH website, it appears that 50-125 is the range for healthy. I find that my low carb lifestyle supports higher levels of Vit D, in particular my regular consumption of almonds. I am thinking of cutting back Vit D supplements to 5K IUs every other day.
    I’m open to any thoughts.

    India has approved a new COVID vaccine that uses circular strands of DNA to prime the immune system against the virus SARS-CoV-2.

    “ Know how it works? Spike proteins.”

    This is something I just don’t understand, why there is the push for mRNA/DNA in so many countries, even Sputnik-V is a DNA vaccine, yet the Chinese Sinopharm, Sinovac etc. are all dead or deactivated virus vaccines. It’s not because the Chinese don’t have mRNA/DNA technology, and they’re clearly terrified of C19, so it strongly suggests that they know something that the West doesn’t. My guess is that the spike is a gateway killer with the potential to drastically reduce lifespans. ADE may kill quite a few this autumn/winter but it’s the excess death count with people dying of all sorts of diseases that we’re going to see over the next few years which will have a major impact on population sizes. The link back to C19 and the shots won’t be made thanks to deniable plausibility. I hope I’m wrong.

    “On the one hand, Covid vaccines undoubtedly help to reduce infection and illness.”

    We see this all the time, bold statements, taken as read, that the jabs are working wonders, and no one in the MSM ever points out that this particular emperor has been running around in his birthday suit for quite a while now. It’s not even difficult to prove, just look at the numbers for this time last year and compare them to now, 26x the number of cases for the UK and similar for other European countries. Ah yes, “but delta”, the true believers say, and “just think how bad it would have been without the vaccines!”

    My neighbour works behind reception at a local hospital. A nice lady and a true believer, I talked to her this morning. She was defending jabbing the young as she said that there’s quite a few cases of 18 year olds and younger on the wards now. I told her that I didn’t think the jabs were working as hoped and that I also didn’t think they would be good for the young. She disagreed due to C19 risk of pericarditis and myocarditis which they are seeing in these young cases. I argued gently that they run the same risk from the vaccines, but it’s a lost cause. I then pointed out the huge difference in case numbers now compared to this time a year ago and she looked genuinely shocked as if realising for the first time that the vaccines may well not be the way out that everyone is assuming. She told me that her double-jabbed 90+ year old mother now has C19.

    So perhaps there is a gradual dawning of awareness.

    “So, I have given up on COVID19. It is a complete mess, and I feel that, without being certain of the ground under my feet, I have nothing to contribute. I too am in danger of starting to make statements that are not true.”

    Then adds:

    “Of course, no-one is remotely interested in such anomalies. Instead, they point to a country like Norway and say – ‘Look how well they did with their rapid lockdown, and preventing people crossing the border’. No-one points to Northern Ireland and says, ‘look how well they did with all their….’ All their what? All their doing exactly the same as England.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gut_microbiota

    Gut microbiota, gut flora, or microbiome are the microorganisms including bacteria, archaea and fungi that live in the digestive tracts of humans[1] and other animals including insects. The gastrointestinal metagenome is the aggregate of all the genomes of gut microbiota.[2][3] The gut is the main location of human microbiota.[4] When the study of gut flora began in 1995, it was thought to have three key roles: a defense against pathogens, maintaining the intestinal epithelium, and metabolizing otherwise indigestible compounds in food.[citation needed] Subsequent studies revealed a role in training the developing immune system and a role in the gut-brain axis.

    The microbial composition of the gut microbiota varies across the digestive tract. The colon contains the highest microbial density recorded in any habitat on Earth, representing between 300 and 1000 different species.[5] However, 99% of gut bacteria come from about 30 or 40 species.[6] Bacteria also make up to 60% of the dry mass of feces.[7] Over 99% of the bacteria in the gut are anaerobes, but in the cecum, aerobic bacteria reach high densities.[4] It is estimated that these gut flora have around a hundred times as many genes in total as there are in the human genome.

    It is insane how complacent everyone is. Oroborus is not far off the mark when he states Oz going ‘down under’ is like Poland being annexed. I spoke to a kiwi friend and mentioned a similar comparison about Oz and they simply shrugged their shoulders and said “Austrailia has its own set of problems”. I said “they’re our cousins” but that didn’t seem to matter. I reminded them that first they came for the trade unionists. It seems all our warnings are falling on deaf ears.

    We keep on regardless. Karl Denninger mentions in his post today that the mandates are looking like they are losing steam in the US. No sign of any mandates as yet here in the UK from what I can make out. We look for whatever small slithers of hope we can.

    It is therefore delusional to believe that the purpose of lockdowns is therapeutic and humanitarian. When has capital ever cared for the people? Indifference and misanthropy are the typical traits of capitalism, whose only real passion is profit, and the power that comes with it. Today, capitalist power can be summed up with the names of the three biggest investment funds in the world: BlackRock, Vanguard and State Street Global Advisor. These giants, sitting at the cenolders in around 90% of listed companies. Around them gravitate transnational institutions like the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the World Economic Forum, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bank for International Settlements, whose function is to coordinate consensus within the financial constellation. We can safely assume that all key strategic decisions – economic, political and military – are at least heavily influenced by these elites.tre of a huge galaxy of financial entities, manage a mass of value close to half the global GDP, and are major shareholders in around 90% of listed companies.

    As the FDA candidly admits, the use of emergency vaccines is only possible if “there are no suitable, approved and available alternatives”. A case of truth hidden in plain sight.

    Emergency Use Authorization for Vaccines Explained

    The whole pandemic script – from the ‘contagion curve’ to the ‘Covid deaths’ – rests on the PCR test, which was authorised for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 by a study produced in record time on commission from the WHO. As many will know by now, the diagnostic unreliability of the PCR test was denounced by its inventor himself, Nobel laureate Kary Mullis (unfortunately passed away on 7 August 2019), and recently reiterated by, among others, 22 internationally renowned experts who demanded its removal for clear scientific flaws. Obviously, the request fell on deaf ears.

    All too predictably, we now discover that the road to freedom is littered with ‘variants’, that is to say, iterations of Virus. Their purpose is to increase the ‘case count’ and therefore prolong those states of emergency that justify central banks’ production of virtual money aimed at monetizing debt and financing deficits. Rather than returning to normal interest rates, the elites opt to normalize the health emergency by feeding the contagion ghost. The much-publicised ‘tapering’ (reduction of monetary stimulus) can therefore wait – just like Pandexit.

    3 New Cases Of “Mu Variant” Found In Hong Kong, Authorities Fear It Is Vaccine Resistant

    “This variant has a constellation of mutations that suggests that it would evade certain antibodies, not only monoclonal antibodies, but vaccine- and convalescent serum-induced antibodies,” Fauci said. “But there isn’t a lot of clinical data to suggest that, it is mostly laboratory in-vitro data.”

    Three people who recently arrived in Hong Kong were found to be carrying a new coronavirus variant which health experts fear could be more vaccine resistant.
    Two of the patients – a 19-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman – had flown in from Colombia and were confirmed to have the Mu variant in early June, while the other, a 26-year-old woman, arrived from the United States, health authorities said on Friday. She was found to be infected on July 24.
    The development came as the city confirmed four new imported Covid-19 cases, all involving domestic workers who arrived from the Philippines.

    Mu, known scientifically as B. 1.621, has been classified as a “variant of interest”, the global health body said on Tuesday in its weekly pandemic bulletin.
    The WHO said the variant has mutations that indicate a risk of resistance to vaccines and stressed that further studies were needed to better understand it.
    “The Mu variant has a constellation of mutations that indicate potential properties of immune escape,” the bulletin said.

    @Mr. House linked this article:

    “A SELF-FULFILLING PROPHECY: SYSTEMIC COLLAPSE AND PANDEMIC SIMULATION”

    Another fine piece on par with Ernst Wolff’s speech linking the inevitable financial collapse and the Davos crowd with the pandemic psyop.

    @Polder Dweller wrote:

    “I then pointed out the huge difference in case numbers now compared to this time a year ago and she looked genuinely shocked as if realising for the first time that the vaccines may well not be the way out that everyone is assuming. She told me that her double-jabbed 90+ year old mother now has C19.

    So perhaps there is a gradual dawning of awareness.”

    Yes, this is the event that punches a whole in the dominant narrative (illusion, cult, etc) and allows in a shaft of light. A direct, undeniable, personal experience that is counter to one’s programming. One that can’t be easily explained away, justified, or ignored. If the person has any mental integrity at all, it will provide the wedge, which when pushed on will let in more and more light, eventually popping the illusion or control system.

    In Polder’s case, he stated to his neighbor that case numbers were skyrocketing despite the massive vaccination campaigns. An observable fact that directly contradicts all the vaccine propaganda promising a Covid cure, one of their core doctrines. Then the neighbor thinks on this for a second and Boom: “Come to think of it, my 93 yr old mother was fully vaccinated and just came down with Covid. Something doesn’t add up here.”

    From here the neighbor must ponder on whether this was a one-off, an honest mistake giving the pharma companies the benefit of the doubt, or an intentional lie meant to deceive. It requires hard work to extricate oneself from any control system. Mental laziness will never do. They are everywhere, by the way, all designed to relieve you of your personal sovereignty so that others may run your life for their benefit.

    IKR? I don’t brainwash easily, and even so, it took me something like a year before I started to “snap out of it”. Nine months, if you start with the “something is rotten in the state of Denmark” moment I had when a video of an official government proceeding concerning Ivermectin was taken down from YouTube.

    Mu, like all variants, doesn’t escape natural immunity at all. So congratulations: if you did nothing, you’re covered.

    Democrats Refuse to Drink Water as It’s also Prescribed to Horses” –BBee

    To counter the rampant misinformation propagated by pro-water extremists, Democrats now refuse to drink water and urge other progressively minded Americans to follow suit.

    “Not only is water prescribed for horses, they actually need water to survive.” Said local Democrat Thurl Turdleburd, standing guard outside of the town’s livestock shop. “With idiots emptying the farm supply store shelves of this precious product, millions of horse lives are now at risk.”

    When asked if his refusal to drink water paralleled the left’s reaction to the widespread off-label use of Ivermectin to fight COVID-19, backed by over 50 promising studies, decades of safety data, and billions of doses given in third-world countries to eradicated horrifying diseases in humans, Mr. Turdleburd’s eyes glazed over. He then looked to the sky and yelled, “Science!”

    Republicans are now leading a reactionary campaign in reaction to the reaction of Democrats. Leaders are rallying patriots to not only drink water that is prescribed for horses but to also sleep standing up and poop in their yards.”

    These people are un-parodiable. Nothing I or The Bee can think of is crazier than what they already believe. But that doesn’t make it not worth trying! I mean, don’t you get tried of being wrong and mocked and having people think poorly of you? I thought they were social types, collectivists. You know, 8th grade popularity contest. So how are you the cool kids if everybody’s laughing at you behind your backs?

    I read this today: The Snake-Oil Salesmen and the COVID-Zero Con: A Classic Bait-And-Switch for a Lifetime of Booster Shots (Immunity as a Service)

    Here is a summary of what the article teaches about human immunity, especially as it relates to respiratory viruses, such as flu and coronaviruses:

    Regarding Covid and the “Zero-covid” campaign:
    • Respiratory viruses cannot be eradicated
    • Viruses that have large animal reservoirs cannot be eradicated
    • “Leaky vaccines” (vaccines that do not prevent infection & transmission) cannot eradicate viruses.
    • Viruses that use simple mechanisms to invade cells, such as flu viruses, corona viruses, etc., create “successful mutations” constantly (successful = able to infect host) and cannot be eradicated.

    Regarding human immunity
    • Generally, the worse the sickness the more robust and durable the immune response. It takes time to create the highly specialized defenses of the adaptive (acquired) immune system. More mild infections do not bring the part of the immune system that creates durable immunity into play. A mild infection may bring very little to no adaptive strategies into play – the more severe the infection, the more involved the adaptive immune system becomes. The most severe infections, when survived, create the most durable (long-lasting, up to lifetime,) immune responses.
    • Generally, “natural immunity” is always more robust than vaccine-inspired immunity. Another way of putting this is that vaccine immunity can approach the efficacy of natural immunity but can never surpass it.
    • For fast-mutating viruses (such as flu and corona viruses), adaptive immunity may not be especially long lived (a few months to a few years,) however, normal human interaction will bring us constantly into contact with variants of viruses that we have already encountered. Our pre-existing immunity will be fading and/or slightly (somewhat) inefficient in preventing infection – but we will have a degree of protection. This degree of protection is called “cross-immunity.” When we become infected with a variant we are acquainting our adaptive immune system to the new changes in the virus, and our immune system will, to some degree, create protection coded specifically for the new changes. These updates occur endlessly – often without us even showing any symptoms of sickness (i.e. “asymptomatic infections.”) By the means of constant exposure, we ensure that we will always (as long as our immune systems are functioning optimally,) have an appropriate arsenal of adaptive immunity measure to tackle every new variant of a virus that nature throws up at us.
    • There are clear measures that can be taken to have an optimally running immune system: plenty of nutrients we are needed by the immune system, such as vitamins C and D, zinc, etc. We need adequate sleep, lack of stress, (i.e. avoidance of long-term existential threats,) and quality human interactions (hugs, handshakes, etc.)

    How to help vulnerable populations
    • Some among us are vulnerable and have immune systems that operate sub-optimally. It behooves us as humans to protect our vulnerable populations. One of the ways we do this is by allowing respiratory viruses to primarily spread between those of us with robust immune systems – by doing this we work with evolution to incentivize the propagation of viruses that are incapable of causing bad disease outcomes.
    • When we allow respiratory illnesses to circulate in populations with weaker immune systems, we inadvertently encourage the creation of viral variants that are capable of creating worse outcomes.
    • Those who will be worst affected by the viruses that are likely to kill their hosts are those who have weakened immune systems or who have not yet encountered any prior iteration of the virus and have no cross-immunity.
    • A word of warning; The trench warfare and field hospitals of WWI (population isolation, especially isolation of people with weakened immune systems in field hospitals) likely created the emergence of the Spanish Flu of 1918, and the end of the war likely created the situation that caused the Spanish Flu to become less deadly.

    Facts about Covid
    • The covid virus is not all that different from viruses that have been encountered in the past, therefore most people have some degree of cross-immunity to the covid virus.
    • The covid virus is a pretty run-of-the-mill respiratory virus, and it can be expected to follow the same trajectory of most respiratory viruses, as long as humans don’t change their usual behavior towards it.
    • Once infected with covid the level and duration of immunity it offers will vary greatly from individual to individual depending on how sick the person got (and to what degree the infection required application of the adaptive immune system), however, due to the nature of the human immune system, as long as the person infected continues to have a robust immune system that individual should not be at risk of a bad future infection with covid.
    • Asymptomatic transmission doesn’t really occur.

    (Gee whiz…I need to rework some details…please hold off reading this until I have done so…)

    I also read the abstract of Predominance of antibody-resistant SARS-CoV-2 variants in vaccine breakthrough cases from the San Francisco Bay Area, California this morning.

    And this is the real-world application:
    (As a covid survivor), I do a better job at keeping vaccinated, vulnerable populations safe from covid by remaining unvaccinated.

    I was reading a study out of San Francisco yesterday. It had studied just over 1373 who had contracted covid in that area from about February to June 2021. 125 of those who became infected with covid were fully vaccinated, and most of them had symptomatic infections. As a part of the study, the virus infecting each person was sequenced, and the variants studied. They found that those who contracted “breakthrough” infections fell into two groups: (1) those who did not mount an adequate immune response to the vaccine, and (2) those who did mount an adequate immune response to the vaccine. There were few in group (1), however, it was clear that their breakthrough infection was because they had underlying conditions affecting their immune system which caused the vaccine to not work for them sufficiently. In group (2) of the vaccinated with breakthrough cases, it was discovered that the virus infecting them tended to have 2 distinct properties to their mutations: (a) they were not more infectious than they original Wuhan variant, and (b) they had more mutations that helped them to escape the antibodies created by the vaccine.

    The part of the study that was unvaccinated was a larger cohort. It was found that the vaccine variants that had infected the unvaccinated population were different than the strains that had infected the vaccinated population. The virus in the unvaccinated group exhibited two characteristics: (a) these variants also displayed mutations that made them more infectious than the original Wuhan variant however, (c) the virus in the unvaccinated group DID NOT exhibit mutations that contributed to the ability to evade the neutralizing antibodies created by the vaccines.

    What this means is that the vaccinated tend to get sick with variants that have the ability to escape the protections offered by the vaccine, and the unvaccinated tend to get sick with variants that cannot infect the vaccinated. The unvaccinated cannot spread the variants that get them sick to the majority of those vaccinated — the vaccine works to protect the vaccinated from variants circulating through the unvaccinated. The unvaccinated spread variants to the unvaccinated and the vaccinated spread variants to the vaccinated. That is what was going on with the 1300 people in the study in San Francisco. It is not the only possible outcome when vaccination occurs during a pandemic, but it is one of the possible outcomes.

    Once an unvaccinated person gets infected with covid, their immune system becomes acquainted with covid. It is possible for the unvaccinated to get infected with covid again, but most likely subsequent infections will be asymptomatic (asymptomatic infections are essentially non-infectious), and simply serve them the same purpose as a “vaccine booster” — updating their immune system with information about the changes found in the currently circulating versions of the virus, and contributing to their ability to easily fight off the virus in the future. This is how the human immune system has dealt with respiratory infections by flu and corona viruses for millennia, and it is a very efficient system.

    If I encounter covid in my daily goings about, most often it will simply serve as a “virus definition update” to my immune system. If I get infected, it will likely be asymptomatic, and it won’t transmit to others. (In the unlikely event that I get symptoms, it will be transmissible, and I will stay home. However, it is unlikely that if I get symptoms that I could transmit it to a person who is up to date on their covid vaccinations — based on the results of the San Francisco study.)

    The most dangerous people for a vaccinated person to be around are those who are vaccinated who develop breakthrough covid cases. This is because the covid variant running around their system has mutated in such a way that it can evade (at least a portion of ) the protection provided by the vaccine — which means that others vaccinated are also likely vulnerable to the virus that caused the breakthrough infection.

    @Mister Roboto

    Don’t be too hard on yourself. I remember my own “aha” moment… After retiring early from high-tech, I decided to go back to school to help ease the transition, and jump-start the other half of my brain which had atrophied from specialization. For an ECON class I chose to write a paper on the 2008 housing/financial crisis and put a lot of research effort into it. It screamed “FRAUD!”, but in an academic sorta way. 🙂

    Yet, in the financial news, many of the issues I discovered in my research were never discussed. The fault, they said, was due to unqualified borrowers who overreached in order to buy homes. That’s when I thought to myself, “Those thieving, dirty, low-down, lying, f*ckers! I wonder what else they’re lying about?”

    Several more years of investigation provided the answer: “Just about everything.”

    So, if I shouldn’t take ivermectin as it’s also a horse dewormer and causes side effects, should I not use ketamine as it’s a horse tranquilizer? I get side effects like tunnel vision difficulty walking and on a large dose disassociation?

    I’ve followed Chris Masterjohn for many years. He’s a PhD in Nutritional Sciences and a trusted source for all things nutritional. He has just put out an article entitled “Vitamin D and COVID-19: The Current State of the Evidence” you might find informative. He believes that these studies support maintaining vitamin D status in the 50-60 ng/mL range to achieve the lowest risk of infection, but not regarding this as any kind of panacea that can guarantee a mild or non-fatal case.
    But…
    “A study of hospitalized patients in Iran85 provided a vague hint that risk may actually increase when vitamin D is in the toxic range: although only seven patients had vitamin D status over 100 ng/mL, two of them died, bringing their mortality rate (29%) closer to the patients with less than 10 ng/mL (36%) than to those with 10-100 ng/mL (19%). Due to the small number of people in this range, these results are not statistically significant, but they urge caution to stay out of the toxic range, something good to do anyway.”

    Based on his analysis you might want to cut back on the D.

    I don’t think this is correct, at least the At All part. As explained in the link posted yesterday, the Covid virus is more like the flu than the measles in terms of the mechanism it uses to unlock the cell it is trying to invade. So when the virus mutates, the mutation doesn;t have an issue getting back in. But the more complicated viruses, when they mutate, it throws off the entry procedure too much, they don’t get in, and it’s a mutational dead end. The flu method is simple, like breaking a car window. Measles and small pox would be trying to call a locksmith to reproduce the key, and the locksmith that turns up is actually a Microsoft programmer. Covid is maybe like putting a hanger down through the window and popping the button (we’re going with old cars in this analogy). So it mutates pretty fast, too.

    Natural immunity should give you some cross-immunity, so you might not get as sick. But just like you can catch the flu every year, you can get sick again from a covid variant.

    Also the viruses we have “eradicated” apparently only infect humans. Covid is now in deer, cats, gorillas, etc.,mutating away. In other words, herd immunity, whether we came up with vaccines or just let the virus rip, was never even remotely possible. And anyone who knew basic virology would know this. At least this is how I interpreted the article, which seems to make a lot of sense to me.

    Thank you, @phoenixvoice, for summarizing the Snake Oil article above. I posted the link yesterday in the afternoon, but it seemed to take a very long time for it to show up in the feed. It falls right on the edge of what I think I can pass on to friends and relatives to see if I can pry them into discussion. The link, again:

    The other article that I was thinking of pairing it up with is Gail Tverberg’s article on vaccine shortcomings. There’s something about Gail’s calm writing style that makes it attractive for this purpose, even while discussing topics of enormous import.
