“Among 378,048 death certificates from 2020 listing COVID-19 as a cause of death, 5.5% listed COVID-19 without codes for any other conditions .. ”

RFK, Jr.: ‘Complete Obliteration Of Critical Thinking’ (JTN)

Political activist Robert Kennedy Jr. warned that a “society in fear” due to the COVID-19 pandemic could result in the “complete obliteration of critical thinking.” Kennedy, who spoke at the Ron Paul Institute’s conference, noted that only a small fraction of the individuals comprising the CDC’s COVID-19 death total died primarily from COVID-19. “Among 378,048 death certificates from 2020 listing COVID-19 as a cause of death, 5.5% listed COVID-19 without codes for any other conditions,” according to the CDC. “The people who died, 96% of them, had almost 400 reasons that might have killed them,” Kennedy said during a session titled the Pandemic and the Road to Totalitarianism. “You know, the manipulation of the death certificates. The manipulation of the PCR test.

“All of these mechanics appear to be deliberately manipulated to put our population in a state of fear — and what happens when you have a population in fear? The complete obliteration of critical thinking.” Under the program that Congress passed for reimbursement of funeral costs for COVID-19 tests, applicants were allowed to retroactively supplement their relatives’ death certificates with documentation showing COVID-19 was a contributing cause of death if it was not originally listed. “Applicants who incurred COVID-19-related funeral expenses between Jan. 20 and May 16, 2020,” FEMA explained in a June 29 release, “will be able to submit a death certificate that does not attribute the death to COVID-19 along with a signed statement from the certifying official listed on the death certificate, coroner, or medical examiner linking the death to COVID-19. The written statement must show causal pathway, or an explanation, linking the cause of death listed on the death certificate to the virus and should be submitted with the death certificate.”

Kennedy, a lawyer, said there is “no pandemic exemption” in the U.S. Constitution. He pointed out that government officials ordered churches closed across the country but allowed liquor stores to remain open as “essential businesses.” “There’s no protection of liquor stories in the United States Constitution,” he said. “There is protection of churches. They abolished religious exemptions.” Kennedy also mentioned that millions of small businesses were ordered to close during the pandemic without due process in “direct violation of the Constitution.” “They got rid of property rights,” he said.

“Don’t throw your life away.”

The Lie Of ‘All Unvaccinated’ (Denninger)

Here’s truth folks…. Remember, you get monoclonal antibodies if infected, symptomatic and at risk of severe outcomes. When I got Covid-19 last month I did not qualify since I was not any of >65 (58 isn’t good enough), fat, diabetic, hypertensive or one of the few other listed “things” that quality you irrespective of age. I did not get vaccinated, I got Covid-19 and recovered, obviously, or I wouldn’t be writing this, and now have very strong natural immunity. At this point I thus have neither any fear of Covid-19 or any reason to be vaccinated.

Got that folks? The 23 people were all promised they would not get sick as the inducement to get vaccinated. All 23 of them were symptomatic and at high risk. Every single one of those people was also exactly as contagious to others as were the 27. 48% of Texas is vaccinated. 46% of these recipients were vaccinated. There is no statistical difference between the percentage of vaccinated people in the State of Texas and the percentage of people receiving monoclonal antibodies for symptomatic and at-risk-of-severe Covid-19 patients among this group of 50 who are vaccinated. It is statistically identical. The debate is over folks. You were conned America.

You were told to roll up your sleeve and take the risk of clotting disorders, heart damage, heart attacks, strokes and other serious, even life-threatening adverse reactions based on the lie that doing so would (1) prevent you from getting Covid, (2) prevent you from infecting others with Covid, and (3) keep you from having a symptomatic and potentially-serious outcome if exposed to Covid. All three were LIES and are being repeated to this day by Biden, Fauci, the CDC and your local and State Health Departments. Any “mandate” predicated on these lies was and is in fact a felony assault with a reasonable expectation of serious bodily harm or death to your person and should have been, and should be today, met with whatever level of force is necessary to cause the person issuing said mandate to STOP on an immediate basis. THE VACCINES DO NOT PREVENT INFECTION, TRANSMISSION OR THE RISK OF SEVERE OUTCOMES. ENOUGH!

PS: Before you do something stupid like get a “booster” answer this — why would you believe the third jab will work when you were told the other two would — and the people doing so lied? When, in addition, there is evidence that the manufacturers knew this would happen and rigged the trials to conceal it? What data do you have (none!) on whether the risk of serious adverse events rises with each successive injection, and why would you be so stupid as to believe a single thing these people say after being screwed by the very same people? I remind you: Never in the past has there been a successful vaccine for coronaviruses. All previous attempts have failed during trials, which took years to discover, either by mutational escape or worse, enhancement in those who got the injection(s). Don’t throw your life away.

Open Letter to the Unvaccinated (Ocla)

You are not alone! As of 28 July 2021, 29% of Canadians have not received a COVID-19 vaccine, and an additional 14% have received one shot. In the US and in the European Union, less than half the population is fully vaccinated, and even in Israel, the “world’s lab” according to Pfizer, one third of people remain completely unvaccinated. Politicians and the media have taken a uniform view, scapegoating the unvaccinated for the troubles that have ensued after eighteen months of fearmongering and lockdowns. It’s time to set the record straight. It is entirely reasonable and legitimate to say ‘no’ to insufficiently tested vaccines for which there is no reliable science. You have a right to assert guardianship of your body and to refuse medical treatments if you see fit. You are right to say ‘no’ to a violation of your dignity, your integrity and your bodily autonomy.

It is your body, and you have the right to choose. You are right to fight for your children against their mass vaccination in school. You are right to question whether free and informed consent is at all possible under present circumstances. Long-term effects are unknown. Transgenerational effects are unknown. Vaccine-induced deregulation of natural immunity is unknown. Potential harm is unknown as the adverse event reporting is delayed, incomplete and inconsistent between jurisdictions. You are being targeted by mainstream media, government social engineering campaigns, unjust rules and policies, collaborating employers, and the social-media mob. You are being told that you are now the problem and that the world cannot get back to normal unless you get vaccinated. You are being viciously scapegoated by propaganda and pressured by others around you. Remember; there is nothing wrong with you.

You are inaccurately accused of being a factory for new SARS-CoV-2 variants, when in fact, according to leading scientists, your natural immune system generates immunity to multiple components of the virus. This will promote your protection against a vast range of viral variants and abrogates further spread to anyone else. You are justified in demanding independent peer-reviewed studies, not funded by multinational pharmaceutical companies. All the peer-reviewed studies of short-term safety and short-term efficacy have been funded, organized, coordinated, and supported by these for-profit corporations; and none of the study data have been made public or available to researchers who don’t work for these companies. You are right to question the preliminary vaccine trial results. The claimed high values of relative efficacy rely on small numbers of tenuously determined “infections.”

The studies were also not blind, where people giving the injections admittedly knew or could deduce whether they were injecting the experimental vaccine or the placebo. This is not acceptable scientific methodology for vaccine trials. You are correct in your calls for a diversity of scientific opinions. Like in nature, we need a polyculture of information and its interpretations. And we don’t have that right now. Choosing not to take the vaccine is holding space for reason, transparency and accountability to emerge. You are right to ask, ‘What comes next when we give away authority over our own bodies?’ Do not be intimidated. You are showing resilience, integrity and grit. You are coming together in your communities, making plans to help one another and standing for scientific accountability and free speech, which are required for society to thrive. We are among many who stand with you.

“COVID-19 vaccinations should be a choice, not a government mandate.”

Arizona AG: Tuscon Vaccine Mandate Is Illegal (B911)

The City of Tucson announced Tuesday that it will be putting its COVID-19 vaccine mandate for its employees on pause after the state’s attorney general declared it illegal. Attorney General Mark Brnovich says that his office determined the City of Tucson’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for public employees does violate state law for purposes of S.B. 1487, and also is in direct conflict with the Governor’s Executive Order 2021-18. Therefore, Tucson must rescind or amend the ordinance to come into compliance with state law, or lose millions of dollars in state funding. “Tucson’s vaccine mandate is illegal, and the city could be held liable for attempting to force employees to take it against their beliefs,” said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. “COVID-19 vaccinations should be a choice, not a government mandate.”

Through a “S.B. 1487” investigation, the AGO determined Tucson’s Ordinance 11869, which mandates COVID-19 vaccines for city employees, violates state law and thus the city cannot require public employees to obtain a COVID-19 vaccine. The legislature’s intent was clear when it passed S.B. 1824 earlier this year – government entities from the local to state level cannot mandate COVID-19 vaccines. This law was further supplemented by the Governor’s Executive Order 2021-18 (E.O. 2021-18) in August 2021.In the AGO’s opinion, Tucson public employees could rely in good faith on E.O. 2021-18 and state law to refuse the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

Today, the AGO officially notified the City of Tucson that its COVID-19 vaccine ordinance is in violation of state law and must be rescinded or amended. As expressly provided in S.B. 1487, if the City of Tucson does not rescind its policy within the next 30 days, the AGO will notify the Arizona Treasurer, who will withhold the city’s portion of state shared revenue until it comes into compliance. Additionally, the AGO believes the City of Tucson could subject itself to potential liability claims if it were to take adverse action against an employee who relies on E.O. 2021-18 and state law to refuse the vaccine.

“More than 20,000 people have died in the U.S. from the virus in the past two weeks, a figure that is up nearly 70% from the two weeks prior.”

Biden To Lay Out New Coronavirus Strategy As Delta Variant Cases Rise (JTN)

President Joe Biden is expected Thursday to lay out a new, six-point strategy to confront the novel coronavirus, including the highly contagious Delta variant. Biden will meet with his COVID-19 advisers Wednesday. A recent wave of cases, owing largely to Delta, has created a new challenge for the Biden administration as the school year begins anew and hospitals in some areas become overwhelmed. Press Secretary Jen Psaki says the strategy, to be presented aboard Air Force One, will work “across the public and private sectors to help continue to get the pandemic under control.” It is unclear whether the new strategy will include any sort of new mandates.

“We need to continue to take more steps to make sure districts are prepared and make sure communities across the country are prepared,” Psaki said. Last week, the United States hit 40 million recorded COVID-19 cases. More than 20,000 people have died in the U.S. from the virus in the past two weeks, a figure that is up nearly 70% from the two weeks prior. Officials are aiming to begin distributing coronavirus vaccine booster shots the week of Sept. 20, following a Sept. 17 meeting of the Food and Drug Administrtion, during which advisers will consider a possible third Pfizer shot.

“..the federal government lacks the authority to mandate vaccines for everyone..”

White House Signals New COVID-19 Measures Coming For Unvaccinated (ET)

Ahead of President Joe Biden’s announcement Thursday about new COVID-19 measures, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that there may be new measures that will be imposed on unvaccinated people. “There are six steps the president’s announcing, there will be new components,” Psaki told reporters on Wednesday. “Some of that will be related to access to testing, some will be related to mandates, some will be related to how we ensure kids will be protected in schools.” When asked about how the new steps would impact Americans’ lives, Psaki said that “it depends on if you’re vaccinated or not.” Psaki provided few details on what mandates could be imposed on unvaccinated Americans.

On Tuesday, she told reporters on Air Force One that the federal government lacks the authority to mandate vaccines for everyone. “There will be new components that sure, will of course impact people across the country, but we’re also all working together to get the virus under control, to return to our normal lives,” Psaki also said, without elaborating, on Wednesday. Biden, who was scheduled to meet with his COVID-19 advisers on Wednesday, delivered a speech about six months ago saying the United States has “made real progress” against the virus. Since that date, about 142 million Americans have received COVID-19 vaccines and about 950,000 people are getting vaccinated each day, according to data provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Data released daily by the CDC’s COVID-19 tracker suggests that the United States’ new cases and deaths may have hit a plateau or is on the decline. The seven day-average for cases as of Tuesday was 140,000 and deaths were 1,022, respectively, while as of Sept. 1, the seven-day average for cases was 156,000 and deaths were 1,141, respectively. The president’s speech on Thursday could make reference to a recent announcement from the heads of several federal health agencies that third doses of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, or booster shots, would be provided around Sept. 20. However, the Food and Drug Administration has yet to approve the booster doses.

Health Authorities Confiscate Alcohol Deliveries To Sydney Tower (Sky)

NSW Health has confiscated bottles of spirits and large quantities of alcohol from residents living in a locked-down apartment block in Sydney’s Inner West in an attempt to limit the number of drinks consumed every day. Mission Australia’s Common Ground Facility in Camperdown was placed into lockdown for two weeks on September 2 after four tenants tested positive. Residents are now allowed to receive a ration of one of the following per day: six beers or pre-mixed drinks, one bottle of wine, or one 375ml bottle of spirits, according to NCA NewsWire. Residents of the social housing block are frustrated care parcels sent from friends and families are being searched through. “They are searching all bags and things coming into the building… They confiscated a series of gifts,” Common Ground resident Robin Elhaj told NCA NewsWire.

“So things like bottles of spirits, we weren’t allowed to have those and we still (aren’t).” Excess alcohol is being confiscated until lockdown rules are lifted. NSW Health says the limiting the amount of alcohol consumed aims to “ensure the safety of health staff and residents”. “We know the experience of a lockdown is very challenging for everyone living and working at Common Ground. Mission Australia is fully engaged with tenants and is providing support to them within the parameters of NSW Health and Police guidelines” Mission Australia’s CEO James Toomey said in a statement. “We continue to work alongside NSW Health, NSW Police, DCJ, cleaners and other tenancy support teams and local community organisations to ensure the safety of tenants and staff, and to ensure support and supplies are provided to people living at Common Ground during the lockdown.”

Melbourne Clinic Offers Ivermectin Despite It Not Being Approved (G.)

A medical clinic in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs has been offering patients off-label prescriptions for the anti-parasite drug ivermectin to treat Covid-19, despite a lack of evidence for its use in treating the virus. The clinic set up a dedicated online page to apply for a consultation to be prescribed the drug to treat Covid-19 on its website after receiving an “influx of ivermectin inquiries”. The clinic says there is no guarantee a prescription for ivermectin will be given, and it will depend on a risk assessment on issues such as location, work, contact with Covid-positive people and medical history. Each consultation costs $85 and does not include a Medicare rebate.

The clinic was listed as a Tier 1 exposure site on Tuesday, after a Covid-positive case attended on 2 September. A caller to ABC Melbourne on Wednesday, who identified themselves as a hospital worker, expressed concern about people taking the drug, stating some had had “negative outcomes” and had to be admitted to hospital. Ivermectin is only approved for use in Australia for medical issues such as river blindness, scabies and roundworm infections. Medical practitioners can legally prescribe the medication off-label, but the Therapeutic Goods Administration has advised against using the drug to treat Covid-19 outside of clinical trial settings.

The National Covid-19 Clinical Evidence Taskforce, which examines studies of the drug around the world, said in late August that “there remains significant uncertainty whether ivermectin is more effective and safer than standard care in treating patients with Covid-19”. The clinic is one of several believed to be prescribing ivermectin off-label to treat Covid-19 in Australia, however, sympathetic GPs usually do not promote offering the service, instead their details tend to be shared among private groups on Facebook and Telegram.

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners president, Dr Karen Price, said while RACGP did not consider its role to be looking over the shoulders of every GP, she advised ivermectin had not received regulatory approval in Australia for use as an anti-viral treatment. “In fact, the advice from the health experts is 100% clear – do not use ivermectin for the treatment of Covid-19,” she said. “The status of other drugs, such as sotrovimab, is very different. That is an example of a new drug for the treatment of Covid-19 that has passed through the rigorous testing safety procedures of the Therapeutic Goods Administration.

“COVID Zero” New Zealand Is Now A Full-Blown Police State (JS)

New Zealand, the last of the dedicated “COVID Zero” nations on earth, has completed its transformation into a full-blown tyrannical regime, and shockingly, it has come with the consent of the vast majority of Kiwis. Once hailed as the media and “public health experts’” favorite COVID-19 managerial “success story,” the puff pieces have been increasingly hard to find, as Wellington has spawned a dystopian concoction of insane, despotic government edicts, claimed as an absolutely necessary part of their everlasting fight against a disease with a 99.8% recovery rate. Just observe what has happened in the Five Eyes partner nation during this week alone:

1) Virtually the entire country is once again under an indefinite lockdown, after a few COVID-19 cases were reported throughout the nation. A single case necessitates a “snap lockdown,” in which all rights of millions of citizens are immediately restricted and indefinitely subject to the containment of a seasonal respiratory disease. The current lockdown has been extended over Auckland until at least mid September, with many predicting a much lengthier sentence. According to past precedent, Kiwis will not receive their freedom back until — this is the truly insane part of Zero COVID — there is zero community spread of COVID-19. And the second another case pops up on the radar, the entire country goes back to square one of the Zero COVID protocol.

2) A man is being shamed by his countrymen for having the audacity to “escape” from a government-sanctioned COVID internment camp. The camps have been described in a more positive, but false light by the press and government officials as “quarantine hotels,” but it is most certainly an internment facility, as leaving is not allowed, and it carries a fine and lengthy prison sentence. The Hill reported: “The person was charged with failing to comply with New Zealand’s coronavirus health order. Under a new law passed last year, he could face a fine or up to six months in jail if convicted.”

3) The country’s police and military services are installing security checkpoints throughout New Zealand in an effort to make sure citizens are not traveling during the lockdown. Freely traveling during the lockdown now carries a massive fine and/or prison sentence as punishment. New Zealand is now the only country in the world left that is dedicated to COVID Zero, the pursuit of the total elimination of a virus from their nation, which has been under a government-sanctioned self-siege since the beginning of 2020. All of the other nations that attempted to pursue the pseudoscience behind COVID Zero have failed in catastrophic fashion. New Zealand has transformed from a highly-touted COVID “success story” to a full-fledged house of horrors, and sadly, there is no end in sight to the ongoing madness.

Children Are Not Covid-19 Super Spreaders: Time To Go Back To School (BMJ)

[..] most public health interventions have assumed children with comorbidities such as primary or secondary immune dysfunction or respiratory/cardiac illness to be at increased risk, and in the UK this has led to advice for these children to shield completely, as for adults known to be at risk. Many paediatric specialists are concerned that a blanket assumption that immune-suppressed children of any kind are all at increased risk will cause considerable long-term educational and social harm to these children. At the current time, children do not appear to be super spreaders. Sero-surveillance data will not be available to confirm or refute these findings prior to the urgent policy decisions that need to be taken in the next few weeks such as how and when to re-open schools. Policies for non-pharmacological interventions involving children are going to have to be made on a risk–benefit basis with current evidence available.

Governments worldwide should allow all children back to school regardless of comorbidities. Detailed surveillance will be needed to confirm the safety of this approach, despite recent analysis demonstrating the ineffectiveness of school closures in the recent past. The media highlight of a possible rare new Kawasaki-like vasculitis that may or may not be due to SARS-CoV2 does not change the fact that severe COVID-19 is as rare as many other serious infection syndromes in children that do not cause schools to be closed. Individualised risk assessment and decision-making by clinicians should occur for those considered at exceptional risk (such as in immediately after bone marrow transplant) or where there are other older family members at significant risk.

“I think we’re in a situation where we can afford to give them this treatment”

AFP Fact Check Accidentally Makes The Case For Ivermectin (Twitchy)

There are claims circulating on social media that Japan approved ivermectin for use in treating COVID-19 but, as this fact check from the AFP makes clear, that’s just not true. What the fact check does say, however, is that Haruo Ozaki, chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association did, explain why a doctor might prescribe ivermectin to treat COVID-19: “Social media posts suggest that Japan’s government recommends using antiparasitic drug ivermectin to treat Covid-19, citing remarks by the chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association. This is misleading; while he cautiously supported the treatment, the association does not represent the country’s government, which has not endorsed ivermectin for that use.” Ozaki went on to say that since we’re in a crisis, “I think we’re in a situation where we can afford to give them this treatment”:

In the video included in the tweet, Ozaki compares the number of Covid-19 cases and mortality rate in African countries that distributed ivermectin once a year for its anti-parasitic properties to those that did not. “I believe the difference is clear. Of course, one cannot conclude that ivermectin is effective on the basis of these figures, but when we have all these elements, we cannot say that ivermectin is absolutely not effective, at least not me,” he says. “We can do other studies to confirm its efficacy, but we are in a crisis situation. With regards to the use of ivermectin, it is obviously necessary to obtain the informed consent of the patients, and I think we’re in a situation where we can afford to give them this treatment,” Ozaki adds.

The fact check also noted that clinical trials of the drug are ongoing: “Clinical trials are ongoing around the world to find out its potential effects on Covid-19 patients, but a recent spike in ivermectin prescriptions prompted the US Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) to release a statement warning of the potential harmful effects of the drug if misused.” So, not a “horse dewormer,” CNN?

The Role Of Iron In The Pathogenesis Of Covid-19 (SD)

Iron overload is increasingly implicated as a contributor to the pathogenesis of COVID-19. Indeed, several of the manifestations of COVID-19, such as inflammation, hypercoagulation, hyperferritinemia, and immune dysfunction are also reminiscent of iron overload. Although iron is essential for all living cells, free unbound iron, resulting from iron dysregulation and overload, is very reactive and potentially toxic due to its role in the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS react with and damage cellular lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins, with consequent activation of either acute or chronic inflammatory processes implicated in multiple clinical conditions. Moreover, iron-catalyzed lipid damage exerts a direct causative effect on the newly discovered nonapoptotic cell death known as ferroptosis.

Unlike apoptosis, ferroptosis is immunogenic and not only leads to amplified cell death but also promotes a series of reactions associated with inflammation. Iron chelators are generally safe and are proven to protect patients in clinical conditions characterized by iron overload. There is also an abundance of evidence that iron chelators possess antiviral activities. Furthermore, the naturally occurring iron chelator lactoferrin (Lf) exerts immunomodulatory as well as anti-inflammatory effects and can bind to several receptors used by coronaviruses thereby blocking their entry into host cells. Iron chelators may consequently be of high therapeutic value during the present COVID-19 pandemic.

Yellen: US On Track To Default On National Debt In October (Hill)

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Wednesday warned congressional leaders that the U.S. is on track to default on the national debt in October if the White House and Congress are unable to raise the debt limit. In a Wednesday letter, Yellen said that the Treasury Department would likely run out of cash and exhaust “extraordinary” measures to keep the federal government within its legal borrowing limit at some point next month. “Once all available measures and cash on hand are fully exhausted, the United States of America would be unable to meet its obligations for the first time in our history,” Yellen said.

“Given this uncertainty, the Treasury Department is not able to provide a specific estimate of how long the extraordinary measures will last. However, based on our best and most recent information, the most likely outcome is that cash and extraordinary measures will be exhausted during the month of October,” she continued. Yellen wrote the letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). The Treasury Department has taken so-called extraordinary measures to prevent the U.S. from defaulting on the national debt since the federal debt limit was reimposed on Aug. 1. If the Treasury Department runs out of ways to stave off a default without borrowing more money, the inability of the U.S. to pay its debts could send debilitating shockwaves through the financial system.

Yellen urged lawmakers for months to raise the debt limit before it was reimposed in August, warning that a delay could “cause irreparable damage to the U.S. economy and global financial markets.” She has since pleaded with Congress to give Treasury the ability to pay debts already approved by previous presidents and congressional majorities. “Waiting until the last minute to suspend or increase the debt limit can cause serious harm to business and consumer confidence, raise short-term borrowing costs for taxpayers, and negatively impact the credit rating of the United States,” Yellen wrote.

    Oroboros thanks for the graphene oxide link. Looks like it is becoming part of the official narrative by stealth. Oh yes of course we use it but we had to deny it because it was a secret ingredient. Next the parasite which really gives me the creeps. Of course we include parasites in injections after all leeches have long been used in medicine. And people will take time off and stand in queues for it.


    Mister Roboto:

    I used to work for a mining equipment manufacturer, BE now Cat, and I can say Milwaukee is very similar to Toronto, especially weather wise. While not based there year round, I did visit headquarters frequently, so spent many months in Milwaukee and loved it.


    Michael Reid:

    I see himicane Larry is going to hit the southern half of Newfoundland Friday. Hope you escape any bad stuff as it brushes by.


    Does anyone else have the sense that given the “default” word has been introduced out in the open by TPTB the actual default isn’t far behind? One, from the events that Dr. D noted, and two, they unleashed north of $6 trillion in deficit spending for 2020 (though actual could be higher or lower), but need to wait for everyone to be jabbed and we critical thinkers are holding up the announcement? That would mean there’s a new “shutdown” coming to blame the financial crash on COVID.


    “I think I can safely say that we have TEOTWAWKI.”

    I’d actually feel fine if I could leave Florida and find a nice farm to work on where my paternal side lives.

    Well, I’m essentially giving away exactly where I live, but their HQ is just down the road a few blocks from me. I live on the street just past the Dairy Queen (which isn’t a DQ now anymore) near there.

    Mr. House

    No they’ve used the word default before. All a part of the theater. Does anybody remember when US debt was downgraded way back in 2011? .Gov ended up going after the firm, believe it was a french firm.

    Mr. House

    “That would mean there’s a new “shutdown” coming to blame the financial crash on COVID.”

    You mean like they did with the last crash back in feb of 2020? 😉

    Mr. House

    I do remember the credit downgrade, but even then they only spoke about the threat of default and not actually letting it default or “on track to default”.

    Just have this feeling we’re onto the next stage of their attempt at the “Great Reset” since the repo market bazooka, along with the last crash in 2020 meant they were running out of schemes to kick the can down the road any farther. But if our overlords are anything they certainly are creative and lots of gullibles would still go along with the next leg down. That said, they really don’t have many tools left to avoid an outcome that isn’t worst case scenario.

    Mr. House

    “When you think about it, the parallels between the Health bureaucrats’ insistence on the safety of Covid19 “vaccines”, and the bromides being issued by those in charge of the US economy, are striking. Or suspicious, depending on your outlook.”

    Ive also had similar thoughts. QE and the jabs are the same. They don’t fix the problem, but you gotta do em FOREVA!!!!

    “Vaccines high in safety, debts low in risk”. Allegedly.


    “ about 950,000 people are getting vaccinated each day, according to data provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”

    Of course…but that doesn’t mean that the vaccine recipients are receiving the 1st dose. Approved or not, many are already receiving the third dose. I already know one recipient of the third dose, (she says her doctor’s office was full of folks there for shot #3, doc was handing out both Pfizer and Moderna jabs, on demand.). Most of those whom I know that took two doses are now making plans for the third.

    Wait. I had a very mild headache that did not respond well to Advil or Tylenol for three days over the weekend. I seldom get headaches, and usually they respond to either Advil or Tylenol. It was odd. I wasn’t particularly stressed and I had no other symptoms of being unwell. I spent about 3 hours Friday morning with someone who had received her third Moderna jab a couple days prior. I probably breathed in a lot of spike protein. Maybe THAT was the cause of the headache??

    Good chance that Vanden Bossche’s latest will be in tomorrow’s Debt Rattle. He is as gloomy as ever since the pandemic is progressing very much as he thought it would, with breakthrough infections set to continue to accelerate. According to GVB, those of us who are still unvaccinated are doing a great service to humanity, which is not to say that we have nothing to fear.

    “As an independent expert, I have come to the conclusion that if stakeholders override the emergency brake, it is better to concentrate on solutions for when the crash takes place. The wake-up shock is unlikely to occur before the percentage of Covid-19 disease and death in vaccinees largely exceeds that observed in the unvaccinated group in at least several of the ‘model’ countries (let’s hope that by then we will still have an unvaccinated control group). “


    CDC is buying Google ad space to debunk vaccine shedding:

    COVID-19 & Vaccine Shedding – Get Your Questions Answered
    Individuals who received a COVID-19 vaccine cannot shed the vaccine components. None of the U.S. authorized vaccines contain a live virus so it is not possible to shed it.
    ‎Debunk Misconceptions · ‎COVID-19 Vaccine Facts · ‎Key Things To Know

    But the claim is not that “vaccine components” are being shed, the claim is that the spike proteins created by the body are being shed. We know that they are in the blood…it makes sense that they’d be elsewhere in the body as well.

    Well, given our betters are acting like the Golgafrincham PMC in Douglas Adams, “The End of the Universe” portion of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, that guess is as good as any.

    Under the heading “Too Dumb to Live”:

    “The Golgafrinchams colonizers are all defined by having skills pointless to society and just being generally dumb and crazy. They were all easily tricked by the rest of their race into evacuating the planet where they crash-land on prehistoric Earth. From then on they prioritize holding meetings, filming documentaries and basic hammer-to-nail logic to get by; considering how one markets fire over actually building it, deciding what color the wheel should be before they actually invent it, declaring war on an uninhabited continent and making leaves into currency (and burning down the forests to stop inflation when changing the currency would be easier). Curiously, the fact that their descendants would become modern-day Humanity makes their idiocy seems less detrimental to their own survival as it is to everything else, the native neanderthals eventually going extinct.”

    So the name of the Company defaulting — largest landowner in China — is Evergrande? Sort of like the “EverGiven” that rammed up the butthole of “Evergreen” in the Suez and was towed by the “Barak”? “Evergrande” that is the top candidate of being the Credit Anstalt of 2021?

    Does someone have a sense of humor here? You do know Evergreen is HRC’s name, right?

    I cannot fathom how they think they can hold this together.

    A brain-dump for @Wes 😀

    My cousin worked for Bucyrus-Erie! I guess that would have been in the early 80’s, probably his first FT engineering job, definitely Cold-War era. He spent Glorious Time in Soviets Union as well. 😀 He has some interesting stories from then but not as colorful as yours, lol. I have a SU souvenir he brought my parents, a toy with three carved wooden bears on it. You move the base around and a weight swings and around and animates the bears, eating porridge (I guess, vegan bears?) from a bowl. He told me some stories about being in the SU when I was a kid. One was about how the BE equipment was designed to self–assemble at the job site – the pieces go together and you can use the shovel’s power to assemble itself. IF the crew knows what they’re doing. If not, they’d bring two other cranes over and try to put a big shovel together the hard way and futz it up in the process. Great lulz.

    In another job he was there with a Japanese group that was setting up mining operations in Siberia someplace. The Japanese delegation volun-told him he was going to represent them to the Russians. He asked why, since he wasn’t even part of the Japanese company. They told him since he was an American, the Russians had more respect for him than the Japanese. (A surprise during the Cold War!) And that way he could negotiate getting the work done better than the Japanese team could.

    Also on your LED installs – I earnestly think the White LED will go down in history as one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century. No exaggeration – it provides more light at better efficiency and less of a waste footprint than just about anything else. From whale oil to kerosene to Edison’s incandescent to the CFL – hands down a more pleasing light from less energy and less fuss. That said, white LEDs DO take a non-trivial supply chain (semiconductor technology, solvent-etching, rare minerals.) I hope that humankind can manage to keep making them as we clatter down headfirst the Long Emergency or the Long Descent + Catabolic Collapse with our fearless PMC leaders pushing us along. 😀

    My understanding is that temperature and on-off cycling is what kills LEDs, especially the white LEDs. Basically the temperature swing from on-off generates cracks in the bonding that makes the electrical connections to the chip. Overheating makes atoms migrate causing conduction tunnels that slowly grow and eventually ruin the chip. Not much of a problem in a well-designed light, with a proper ballast and heat-sink. But over-driven LEDs die pretty fast. You can see this in cheap flashlights – where they took a too-small LED and fed it from a too-big battery and it overheated.

    TAE Summary

    What No One Would Have Believed Five Years Ago

    * There will be a virus that spreads around the world
    * It’s origin will be either from a lab where it was genetically engineered or from an animal where it crossed to humans; The true origin will be contested
    * It will mostly kill the old and people with other health problems like diabetes
    * It will also have long term adverse effects for many that contract it
    * A unreliable test for the disease will be used; Anyone testing positive will be counted as a ‘case’ and anyone dying with a positive test will be counted as a death from the virus; Public policy will be driven by the number of cases and deaths
    * Many websites will publish daily statistics of the number of cases and deaths in every state in the US and every country in the world
    * Initially it will be hoped that the virus can be quickly conquered but measures to combat it will continue for a long time
    * Countries will respond by mandating masks, keeping your distance from others, closing businesses and having people stay at home
    * Many things will go online and human to human contact will be greatly diminished
    * Initially it will be believed that the virus is mostly spread by droplets landing on surfaces and washing hands and not touching your face will be stressed
    * Eventually it will be believed that it is mostly spread by aerosols which are finer than droplets and can stay in the air for a long time
    * Mask wearing will be introduced during the droplet phase but will be continued to be stressed even after it is known that aerosols are the main way it is spread
    * The medical system will tell people that contract the disease to stay home and take the things they would take for a cold or flu and to come to the hospital when the think they might die
    * At the hospital they will be treated in a variety of ways; Some will recover but some will be put on ventilators and die
    * The main treatment that will be actively pursued will be vaccines, but instead of the traditional vaccines that use inactivated viruses a new technology will be created that, when injected, will get your own cells to create a small part of the virus and your immune system will create antibodies for just that part of the virus; This small part of the virus will itself be pathogenic but won’t be able to propagate
    * When the novel vaccines are tested they will be claimed to be 90% effective at stopping people from contracting the virus
    * Drug companies who create these novel vaccines will make tens of billions of dollars from them
    * Websters dictionary will redefine ‘vaccine’ to include this new technology
    * These novel vaccines will be quickly authorized for use without full approval; This will be claimed as necessary because the virus is so dangerous to society
    * It will be claimed that the vaccines will eliminate the disease but this will not be the case; Vaccinated people will still be able to contract the virus and spread it to others; It will still be claimed that they lessen the impact of the disease
    * It will also be claimed that natural immunity after recovering from the disease is not as effective as immunity from getting vaccinated
    * The virus will mutate and vaccines will be less effective on the mutated virus
    * Some doctors directly treating patients will claim there are existing medicines that cure or mitigate the disease
    * The medical establishment will not accept any of these, claiming there is insufficient evidence to approve any treatment using existing medicines
    * Some people will use existing medicines improperly causing bad reactions; This will be cited as another reason not to use existing medicines
    * The novel vaccines will have many reported side effects; Little effort will be given to accurate reporting of side effects or to determine if reported side effects are caused by the vaccines or are just coincidental
    * Countries will react in different ways; Countries with resources will attempt to get as many as possible vaccinated; Some will introduce draconian measures including total lock down of the population
    * There will be a large percentage of the population that refuses the novel vaccines for various reasons including possible side effects and unknown long term consequences
    * Governments will go to great lengths to convince people to get vaccinated including offering them perks like million dollar lottery tickets, requiring vaccination for employment and limiting what the unvaccinated can do
    * There will be a movement to punish the unvaccinated and some people will blame them for the mutations and the continuing spread of the virus; Some will suggest that the unvaccinated should not be allowed to associate with the vaccinated and that they should have to pay extra for health care or not receive health care if they contract the virus
    * The news cycle will be dominated by stories about the virus, the vaccines and the unvaccinated
    * People will will wistfully talk about the way things used to be and wonder if it will ever get back to ‘normal’


    New Zealand VAERS so far…

    Suspected adverse drug reactions (ADRs) to vaccines are reported to the Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring (CARM). The Ministry of Health (through Medsafe) contracts the collection of this information to CARM, based at the University of Otago in Dunedin. If CARM detects a possible safety problem with any vaccine, they will inform Medsafe and the Medicines Adverse Reactions Committee

    31 July 2021, a total of 22 deaths were reported to CARM after the administration of the Comirnaty vaccine.
    15 of these deaths are unlikely related
    2 deaths could not be assessed due to insufficient information
    5 cases are still under investigation

    Total doses administered 1,921,913 (+245,456‬)

    7 August 2021, a total of 26 deaths were reported (+4)
    17 unlikely related
    4 deaths could not be assessed
    5 cases are still under investigation

    Total doses administered 2,188,771 (+266,858‬)

    14 August 2021, a total of 31 deaths (+5)
    17 unlikely related
    4 deaths could not be assessed
    9 cases are still under investigation
    1 death was likely due to vaccine induced myocarditis (awaiting Coroner’s determination)

    Total doses administered 2,483,436 (+294,665)

    21 August 2021, a total of 37 deaths (+6)
    19 unlikely related
    5 deaths could not be assessed
    12 cases are still under investigation
    1 death was likely due to vaccine induced myocarditis

    Total doses administered 2,755,117 (+271,681‬)

    Data to 21 August was published 8 September 2021

    The Adverse Effects reports are delayed by about 18 days.

    Total weekly doses for weeks not yet reported
    28 August 2021: 3,295,124 (+540,007)
    4 Septemb 2021: 3,854,344 (+559,220‬)
    8 Septemb 2021: 4,100,657 (+246,313 week not complete‬)

    Based on the complete 4 weeks of reporting (31 July – 21 August) there is about a 13 in 1,000,000 chance of reporting death post vaccination (1st or 2nd dose)
    Extrapolate that out for the weeks 28 August, 4 Sept, 11 Sept we could see an additional 7 or 8 reported deaths per week based on the cumulative total doses given.

    Looking at mumber of incremental deaths over incremental doses it is a bit more bleak.
    When the doses per week were ~245k to ~270k there were 2 to 6 deaths per week reported. 8 to 22 deaths per million doses.
    With ~540k to ~560k doses currently being adminstered we may see 12 addtional deaths reported per week at rate of 22 per million.



    Fauci today:

    Americans are now getting infected with COVID-19 at 10 times the rate needed to end the pandemic, which will persist until more people get vaccinated, NIAID director Anthony Fauci tells Axios.
    Threat level: “The endgame is to suppress the virus. Right now, we’re still in pandemic mode, because we have 160,000 new infections a day. That’s not even modestly good control … which means it’s a public health threat.”
    “In a country of our size, you can’t be hanging around and having 100,000 infections a day. You’ve got to get well below 10,000 before you start feeling comfortable,” Fauci says.
    Once enough people have been vaccinated, he adds, “you’ll still get some people getting infected, but you’re not going to have it as a public health threat.”
    Between the lines: Despite all of the buzz about the Mu variant, which appears to elude some protective properties of authorized vaccines and prior infections, the Delta variant continues to dominate in the U.S. and around the world.
    The good news: Fauci says this means currently authorized vaccinations are still effective.
    The bad news: Not enough Americans are taking measures against the Delta variant, which has already upped the stakes.
    And, the longer it takes to end this pandemic phase, the bigger the chance we’ll end up with a “monster variant” that not only eludes vaccines but also is dangerously transmissible.

    Now I am really confused. We already know that the vaccines aren’t specific to Delta (they were made for the Alpha variant) and they absolutely won’t handle Mu. Not sure what happened to the seven letters between Delta and Mu; they seem to have done gone missing. But more to the point, I thought that the way you reach “herd immunity” is for more people to be exposed to and presumably catch the Dread Covid and then be immune, adding as well the people who are immune from vaccination (should any such people exist). But now there are too many people catching it. We must have hit Perfected Herd Immunity at some point without realizing it, then breeched the perfect number and gone straight into the Bad Herd Immunity category. Or something.

    Huh. Sounds like we are following the Crystal Blue Persuation method of medicine.


    teri, I started reading that and can’t tell it from Babylon Bee. Too many people catching is just more testing.


    “The status of other drugs, such as sotrovimab, is very different. That is an example of a new drug for the treatment of Covid-19 that has passed through the rigorous testing safety procedures of the Therapeutic Goods Administration.

    I had to check the graphic from the other day. Sotrovimab had the same 67% improvement as ivermectin. But based on one study versus sixty-three. Can only wonder about the price difference.

    John Day, does a prescription have to be on a form? Can the clinic address and phone number be redacted? Redaction seems to have become increasingly popular.

    This is the final paragraph of the ACLU Op-Ed that was in the NYT:

    “..The real threat to civil liberties comes from states banning vaccine and mask mandates. Even though most Covid-19 vaccine mandates do not infringe civil liberties, several states, including Florida, Iowa, South Carolina and Texas, have banned vaccine mandates or mask mandates — and sometimes both — in the name of freedom. But these bans directly endanger the public health and make more deaths from the disease inevitable. They trample the rights of the most vulnerable, who want to participate in society without putting their health at grave risk.The real threat to civil liberties comes from states banning vaccine and mask mandates.

    Read the Vanden Bossche piece I posted above and you will understand a lot better why the existing vaccines will never bring us herd immunity and are only exacerbating the problem. Early treatment is far and away the best way forward and the best way to achieve HI.


    the ‘tests’ for Covid can be manipulated to produce any result you want. The PCR cycles can just be modulated to produce the ‘right’ result.

    Or even just straight out lie about the test results, hell, they’re lying about everything else with complete impunity.

    I imagine in the Totalitarian State of Oz they can ‘quarantine’ you with a fake test just to punish and shut you up at will and keep you in a ‘Covid Re-education Camp’ for as long as they want.

    He who controls the test controls the narrative.

    oh, she’ll shed some tears your way,
    while leaving you needing more today.
    you’ll boost her love until you drop,
    oh, vaxine’s touch, please never stop.

    Mr. House:

    Is what has worried me from the beginning and it didn’t start with covid. But hey you can always OPT OUT of the mass psychosis and totalitarianism!

    My body, my choice! ~ Fine! So which do you choose, the needle, the rope or a bullet in the brain pan?

    We the People are unable/refuse to understand what is at stake,an impossible task to turnaround without Spiritual Enlightenment, the oligarchs Final Solution will continue unabated, indeed it is already unfurling…

    Without rejection of the child EGO & total reliance on the Spirit within the noise will override the signal, and humanity will enter a dark age beyond comprehension.

    As I said earlier:

    Either God is everything, or he is nothing.

    Free will is anything but an option: Either you align your life with the Loving, Healing, Creative Power of the Universe -OR- You chose an egocentric life, with all the maladies therein.

    Evil is a destination culminating from a gradual succession of lesser choices. Evil never sleeps, and is always open for business.

    What we are experiencing enmasse is a reckoning ~ A reckoning of societal evil.

    Prepare for the worst, western civilization is about to reap the whirlwind…


    Over 85% fully vaccinated people will get covid from less than the 20% of the people than are still unvaccinated people.
    Better yet, get a 3rd shot.
    Get children 12+ vaccinated
    Children Under 12 must be surrounded by the fully vaccinated people

    Don’t worry about the cost we can print money

    The survivors will be those people that are immune.
    ( Will it be the majority or the minority that survived)
    The survivors will be the people dealing with the printing press.


    @oros, comment #86712

    Can’t argue with a single word of that comment.


    Given what our Dear Leader told us just now, I think it is inevitable that we will see a complete shutdown of the supply chain leading to empty grocery stores, no gas at the pump, etc. By Xmas? Sooner?
    Logistics companies cant lose a meaningful amount of workers, and you cant hire the gal at Subway to drive a truck for higher pay.
    Those who drive trucks, work in warehouses, stock shelves are less married to the status quo than folks with white collar jobs and fancy sports cars. They will say F it.
