Molnupiravir: Coding For Catastrophe (Nature)

Molnupiravir, a wide-spectrum antiviral that is currently in phase 2/3 clinical trials for the treatment of COVID-19, is proposed to inhibit viral replication by a mechanism known as ‘lethal mutagenesis’. Two recently published studies reveal the biochemical and structural bases of how molnupiravir disrupts the fidelity of SARS-CoV-2 genome replication and prevents viral propagation by fostering error accumulation in a process referred to as ‘error catastrophe’. Despite the reprieve from COVID-19 granted by vaccination programs, SARS-CoV-2 continues to ravage many communities worldwide. Vaccine shortages, public hesitancy and the emergence of new virus variants have hindered public health efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.


Furthermore, SARS-CoV-2 is likely to become endemic1, leading to the emergence of vaccine-resistant variants and reinforcing the need to develop antiviral therapeutic agents. Molnupiravir (MK-4482, EIDD-2801) is a candidate antiviral that inhibits viral propagation through lethal mutagenesis by introducing errors in the viral genome. The biochemical and structural basis of how molnupiravir induces lethal mutagenesis has remained largely unexplored. Recently, Götte and colleagues reported biochemical results exploring the antiviral activity of molnupiravir and provided a compelling model to explain the mutagenic patterns observed in coronaviruses exposed to molnupiravir in cell culture2. In this issue of Nature Structural & Molecular Biology, Cramer and colleagues further our understanding of this process by providing biochemical and structural data that reveal how molnupiravir introduces transition mutations into the SARS-CoV-2 genome. Together, the two studies offer complementary and comprehensive views of the mechanism of lethal mutagenesis and provide a platform for rational drug design.

January 2021. “..molnupiravir could be metabolised into a precursor of DNA ..”

Molnupiravir Faces Execution Obstacles (CTA)

Ridgeback Biotherapeutics/Merck’s Phase IIa molnupiravir is attractive for outpatient and recently hospitalised Covid-19 patients due to its mechanism and oral administration, experts said. However, many trial success blind spots persist, limiting efficacy judgment, they added. Encouraging preclinical data is yet to translate into humans, and there is potential for lingering severe side effects due to molnupiravir’s mutagenic mechanism, experts noted. While targeting Covid-19 patients in the earlier part of the disease spectrum is logical, the trial designs may blur molnupiravir’s clinical value, they said. In July 2020, Miami, Florida-based Ridgeback and Merck announced they had partnered to advance molnupiravir in Covid-19.

[..]Comparing molnupiravir and Veklury may be inappropriate as they are intended for different patients, Brown added. Veklury is FDA approved in hospitalised patients, although it has a wider emergency use authorisation. Even if molnupiravir is only as potent as Veklury, its oral formulation will boost its clinical value, as it could be used by more people, Shafer said. As much as 80% of all Covid-19 cases are either asymptomatic or mild, with only 20% of patients sick enough to be hospitalised, added Dr Yvonne Maldonado, professor, infectious diseases in pediatrics and health research and policy, Stanford University, California, and a Phase II Avigan trial investigator in asymptomatic or mild Covid-19 patients. Another oral Covid-19 therapy under investigation is Fujifilm Toyama Chemical’s Avigan (favirpiravir), which is also an oral mutagen, Shafer said, but added Avigan’s preclinical and clinical data in Covid-19 are underwhelming so far.

Due to limited data with highly active viral mutagens like molnupiravir, there is concern its mechanism would negatively impact the host, leading to side effects, Swanstrom said. When considering widespread deployment, toxicity is a major issue, said Dr Saye Khoo, professor, pharmacology and therapeutics, University of Liverpool, UK. How it is utilised will depend on its overall toxicity data, added Khoo, who is studying molnupiravir in a Phase I/II basket trial investigating various Covid-19 treatments.

Side effect concerns have been raised about whether molnupiravir could be metabolised into a precursor of DNA, Swanstrom said, explaining it could enter the host cell nucleus, leading to oncogenesis. Mitochondrial toxicity with such a mechanism has been raised in previous investigations in hepatitis B and HIV, added an investigator in a Covid-19 trial recruiting outpatients and recently hospitalised patients. In the 20-day Phase I molnupiravir trial recruiting healthy volunteers, 93.3% of adverse events were mild, with one patient discontinuing due to rash (Painter, W., et al., Medrxiv. 14 December. https://doi.org/10.1101/2020.12.10.20235747).

Molnupiravir is only used in the short term, twice-daily for five days, as opposed to chronic use, Shafer added. Polymerase inhibitor side effects have improved over the years, and while mutagen side effects were a concern in early development in HIV, they have eased in available hepatitis treatments, Brown added. However, due to the need for longer-term safety data, molnupiravir may be limited to patients at high risk of developing severe disease, Swanstrom said.

“..the British Office for National Statistics inadvertently revealed that 30,305 people have died within 21 days of having the injection, during the first 6 months of 2021.”

The Vaccine Death Report (Zelenko et al)

In The Netherlands, one of the smallest nations in the European Union, an extraparliamentary research commitee set up a platform for citizens to report vaccine adverse events. This is no initiative from the government and has received no attention whatsoever in the media. The vast majority of the Dutch population is therefore unaware of its existence. Yet, dispite its narrow scope of influence, this private initiative has already received reports of 1,600 deaths and 1,200 health damages, often permanently disabling the people. 3 What if the entire vaccinated population knew about this platform and filed a report? And what if this was also available in the other E.U. countries, that are much larger than The Netherlands?

UK: Shortly before the national vaccination campaign started, the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) published the following request: ‘The MHRA urgently seeks an Artificial Intelligence (AI) software tool to process the expected high volume of Covid-19 vaccine Adverse Drug Reaction (ADRs) and ensure that no details from the ADRs’ reaction text are missed.’ The British government published a report of the first series of adverse events, including blindness, strokes, miscarriages, heart failure, paralysis, auto immune disease, and more. Shortly after the first wave of immunization over 100,000 adverse events were reported, including 1260 cases of loss of eyesight (including total blindness). The first part of the report praises the vaccines to be the best way to protect people from COVID-19, and then continues to show the incredible destruction these vaccines are causing. The hypocrisy is mindboggling. Also in the United Kingdom the number of miscarriages increased by 366% in only six weeks, for vaccinated mothers.

Furthermore the British Office for National Statistics inadvertently revealed that 30,305 people have died within 21 days of having the injection, during the first 6 months of 2021. And a British scientist with 35 years of experience did an in depth analysis of the British Yellow Card reporting system and found it to be unreliable. ‘We can conclude that the Yellow Card reporting scheme can provide some limited information that may be useful for alerting the UK public to possible adverse effects of the COVID-19 vaccines. However, the initial conception of the scheme as a purely descriptive rather than as an experimental undertaking means that it cannot address the real issues that are of crucial importance to the UK public. These issues are whether there are causal relationships between vaccination with the PF and AZ vaccines and serious adverse effects such as death, and if so, what are the size of these effects.’

3 more months of PCR in the US. And what then?

You CAN’T Use ‘Cases’ (Denninger)

Not one lab has ever returned Ct numbers to the tested person. Not even in Florida, where DeSantis issued an Executive Order requiring it. Was there ever any enforcement of that? No. Why did we know this was entirely bogus? Simple: On the CDC’s own math the fall surge — which turned into the Winter Disaster — was epidemiologically impossible. Specifically, look at their mean ratio of infections to case counts and you see the problem; at 6x enough people had the virus for there be no surge. But there was. By the summer this was even more beclowned as on that same data everyone had been infected. But…. there was a surge. Do remember the admitted truth on PCR: A Ct test of 35 or more almost never results in culturable virus.


It breaks down something like this:
Ct<20 = Nearly always you can culture virus.
Ct25 = 50 – 70% of the time you can culture virus.
Ct30 = ~25-30% of the time you can culture virus.
Ct35 = ~4-8% of the time you can culture virus.
Ct40 = Statistically never can you culture virus.

Why is this important? Many people have claimed that viral debris from your infection still means you had it, thus, positive is positive. Nope. This is the worst sort of fraud. At very high Ct numbers the debris could be from contamination at the lab, or between samples. But it could also be from your prior, non-Covid-19 immunity and anyone who is even slightly competent in understanding the immune system knows it. The virus enters through the nose and mouth. The upper respiratory tract is where it first gets into cells — if it gets into cells. Your body has a bevvy of defensive mechanisms to prevent that from happening. Remember that unlike bacteria a virus cannot replicate outside of a living cell. The mucosa in your mouth and nose is not alive. The cells under it are, but it is not.

So if a virus lands in your nose but never gets through the mucosa it will register positive on a PCR test — because it is positive — if the Ct is cranked up high enough. Technically you “got” the virus (you “caught” it) but you were never infected. It is certainly true that some of the people who are “positive” with high Ct numbers are infected and you got them “early”; they will go on to have clinical disease and, if you test them again you will get another positive in a day or two with a much lower Ct. But nobody does that. In addition exactly zero health departments have validated their claimed “infected” counts by coming back to those people with a $5 antibody test two weeks later and looking for IgA, IgM and/or IgG antibodies. IgA may be present and both IgM and likely a weak read of IgG will be present if the person was actually infected at that time. If only IgG is present that infection was not Covid-19; they previously were infected and you lied; their body beat off the incipient infection without impact.

“..large numbers of health care workers getting kicked out of their jobs will only make it more difficult to care for patients..”

In a Dark Wood (Kunstler)

In upstate New York, WNYT-TV reported yesterday that 200 employees of Albany Med, a large, regional teaching hospital, are placed on seven day’s unpaid leave prior to getting fired for refusing the vaccine. Andrew Cuomo’s replacement, new Governor Kathy Hochul, has blocked unemployment benefits for fired nurses and technicians if they persist in evading the vax. Doctors are included in the mix, too. Of course, large numbers of health care workers getting kicked out of their jobs will only make it more difficult to care for patients — with Covid or any other health problem — so how does this policy help anyone? (Unless you consider that, with fewer staff on-duty, fewer Covid in-patients will be subjected to the medical malpractice of being placed on ventilators and treated with the killer drug Remdesivir.)


Not only has effective early treatment with other drugs been banned from the official medical standards-of-practice across the USA, but mere talk about it has been banned, notably by Google’s YouTube app. This coercion of health care workers is going on all over the country, of course, not just in New York state. These nurses and techs have been working around Covid patients for going on two years, and many of them have gotten the disease, with symptoms or without, conferring natural immunity. So, what is the point of forcing the vaxes on them? It is also a fact that vaccinated people are susceptible to catching the disease, and that, in any case, the vaccinated carry heavier viral loads than the un-vaxed, making them more efficient spreaders. It is also a fact that mass vaccination in the midst of a pandemic promotes the mutation of new variant viruses that increasingly are not affected by the vaccines.

“By instituting vaccine mandates, university hospitals are now also questioning the existence of natural immunity after Covid disease. This is astonishing.”

Hospitals Should Hire, Not Fire, Nurses with Natural Immunity (Kulldorff)

Among many surprising developments during this pandemic, the most stunning has been the questioning of naturally acquired immunity after a person has had the Covid disease. We have understood natural immunity since at least the Athenian Plague in 430 BC. Here is Thucydides: ‘Yet it was with those who had recovered from the disease that the sick and the dying found most compassion. These knew what it was from experience and had no fear for themselves; for the same man was never attacked twice—never at least fatally.’ – Thucydides We have lived with endemic coronaviruses for at least a hundred years, for which we have long-lasting natural immunity. As expected, we also have natural immunity after Covid-19 disease, as there have been exceedingly few reinfections with serious illness or death, despite a widely circulating virus.

For most viruses, natural immunity is better than vaccine-induced immunity, and that is also true for Covid. In the best study to date, the vaccinated were around 27 times more likely to have symptomatic disease than those with natural immunity, with an estimated range between 13 and 57. With no Covid deaths in either group, both natural and vaccine immunity protect well against death. During the last decade, I have worked closely with hospital epidemiologists. While the role of physicians is to treat patients and make them well, the task of the hospital epidemiologist is to ensure that patients do not get sick while in the hospital, such as catching a deadly virus from another patient or a caretaker. For that purpose, hospitals employ a variety of measures, from frequent hand washing to full infection control regalia when caring for an Ebola patient.

Vaccinations are a key component of these control efforts. For example, two weeks before spleen surgery, patients are given the pneumococcal vaccine to minimize postoperative infections, and most clinical staff are immunized against influenza every year. Infection control measures are especially critical for older frail hospital patients with a weakened immune system. They can become infected and die from a virus that most people would easily survive. A key rationale for immunizing nurses and physicians against influenza is to ensure that they do not infect such patients. How can hospitals best protect their patients from Covid disease? It is an enormously important question, also relevant for nursing homes. There are some obvious standard solutions, such as separating Covid patients from other patients, minimizing staff rotation, and providing generous sick leave for staff with Covid-like symptoms.

Another goal should be to employ staff with the strongest possible immunity against Covid, as they are less likely to catch it and spread it to their patients. This means that hospitals and nursing homes should actively seek to hire staff that have natural immunity from prior Covid disease and use such staff for their most vulnerable patients. Hence, we are now seeing a fierce competition where hospitals and nursing homes are desperately trying to hire people with natural immunity. Well, actually, not. Instead, hospitals are firing nurses and other staff with superior natural immunity while retaining those with weaker vaccine-induced immunity. By doing so, they are betraying their patients, increasing their risk for hospital-acquired infections.

By pushing vaccine mandates, White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci is questioning the existence of natural immunity after Covid disease. In doing so, he is following the lead of CDC director Rochelle Walensky, who questioned natural immunity in a 2020 Memorandum published by The Lancet. By instituting vaccine mandates, university hospitals are now also questioning the existence of natural immunity after Covid disease. This is astonishing.

“Most of the time, the changes they made hurt blacks more than whites, but that’s beside the point; in liberalism, it’s the effort that counts.”

72% Of Black NYC Residents Are Banned From Entering Restaurants (Fed.)

Democrats’ summer of Black Lives Matter is over. Front-line nurses’ year in the sun has passed. Gone are the COVID cries to evict no one ever for any reason at all. Disparate impact? Never heard of her. It’s 2021 now; we’ve advanced. These aren’t simple proclamations. Go and read a newspaper from September 2020, and then glance at one from this past month. The political debates are nearly unrecognizable, it’s almost impossible to believe that the same people were often making both policies. New York City is a leader in world liberalism. For years — and especially since May 2020 — its politicians have mangled their schools, their parks, their police force, and their courts, all in the name of fighting racism. Most of the time, the changes they made hurt blacks more than whites, but that’s beside the point; in liberalism, it’s the effort that counts.

New York City is also a leader of the world’s COVID cult. New Gov. Kathy Hochul says that if you want to serve God, you must receive the sacrament of vaccination. Mayor Bill de Blasio has decreed that all restaurants must see proof of vaccination before service. There’s the snag: Today in New York City, roughly 72 percent of black residents aged 18-44 have not taken the novel vaccine, meaning now roughly 72 percent of black residents aged 18-44 are banned — banned — from entering dining establishments. Statewide, 53 percent of black residents aren’t vaccinated, compared to only 44 percent of white residents who have declined the shots; yet this week, the state’s governor announced she would use the powers of this unending emergency to fire and replace as many as 72,000 health workers for refusing the vaccine.

In New York City, health-care workers were lauded as both heroes and COVID experts just weeks ago. Most of those workers are women, a plurality are black, and now, thousands of them might be out of jobs. The hospital system never collapsed due to COVID, but it might collapse due to Hochul’s measures to fight it. New York City is not alone in reversing course: Down south in Florida earlier this month, one apartment owner promised to evict any tenants who decline the vaccine. It’s unsafe to be near the unclean, he said. So black mother Jasmine Erby and her two children were given the boot. “There was no loophole, no working with me, no extensions and I literally had to walk away,” Irby told Fox News. “It was either get the shot or get out.”

“.. the CDC doesn’t even track the breakthrough infections so how do we know that they’re only a small portion and that they’re relatively mild?”

Fauci Confronted About CDC Claims About “Breakthrough” Infections (ZH)

Finally, Eisen Hit Dr. Fauci with a surprise hard ball: She cited “data” collected within her own family, whereby three vaccinated people got COVID and immediately passed it on to two unvaccinated children. Eisen then suggested that the CDC might be “too casual” about breakthough infections, and also questioned “How can the CDC keep saying COVID “breakthrough” infections are rare if they have no data?” To this, Dr. Fauci replied that the CDC is scrambling to change this, and even hinted that more data on the true rate of breakthrough infections would likely soon arrive. “Three vaccinated people got Covid in my house two unvaccinated children got it…are you too casual about the limitations of the vaccine? It seems to me these breakthroughs are happening and they’re happening regularly. You can get it and transmit it and the government hasn’t been warning about that,” Eisen said.

“Oh yes we have and let me get you the facts. If you are an unvaccinated person you have 11x the likelihood of hospitalization…if you look at the people who have died from COVID-19, overwhelmingly they have been unvaccinated,” Dr Fauci Fauci adds that “over 90%” who have been unvaccinated – but of course that vast majority of deaths occurred before the vaccine rollout even started, making this statement slightly misleading. As for determining how many unvaccinated have died since the program began, it’s not exactly clear since this data wasn’t being tracked. Though deaths and hospitalizations have fallen since vaccination rates have risen, but there’s still many questions about whether the young and health actually benefit. Fortunately, CNBC released this clip.

As for the CDC tracking breakthrough infections, Eisen also pressed Dr. Fauci about the fact that “the CDC says on its website that infections occur among…unvaccinated…but the CDC doesn’t even track the breakthrough infections so how do we know that they’re only a small portion and that they’re relatively mild?” Dr. Fauci had nothing really to say to this except to admit she was of course correct while offering a flimsy excuse about the CDC working on it. “Well in the past the CDC has not tracked real or asymptomatic infections, but there are studies being done that would give the kind of data you’re talking about.” “And with the booster program we’re rolling out, we hope to see an improved effect. Israeli data have shown that when you give an at risk person a booster shot, they’re chances of being hospitalizations drop.”

The interview with a question from CNBC host Wilfred Frost about the risks of any future variants, to which Dr. Fauci responded with the typical fear-mongering. “I’ll give an answer that’s totally consistent with what I’ve said before, is the likelihood of seeing something worse…is completely in our own control…if we allow the virus to freely circulate, particularly among unvaccinated people, you give the virus a greater possibility of producing a variant that could create some trouble for our vaccines.” But overall, the interview makes clear: the media is starting to get curious about the growing reports of breakthrough infections of public officials like Brett Kavanaugh (whose diagnosis was announced today) to family members and friends. Whatever it is, the 90%+ rate they insist on seems increasingly like a stretch.

Myocarditis in VAERS Linked To Covid-19 Injectable Biological Products (SD)

Following the global rollout and administration of the Pfizer Inc./BioNTech BNT162b2 and Moderna mRNA-1273 vaccines on December 17, 2020, in the United States, and of the Janssen Ad26.COV2.S product on April 1st, 2021, in an unprecedented manner, hundreds of thousands of individuals have reported adverse events (AEs) using the Vaccine Adverse Events Reports System (VAERS). We used VAERS data to examine cardiac AEs, primarily myocarditis, reported following injection of the first or second dose of the COVID-19 injectable products. Myocarditis rates reported in VAERS were significantly higher in youths between the ages of 13 to 23 (p<0.0001) with 80% occurring in males.

Within 8 weeks of the public offering of COVID-19 products to the 12-15-year-old age group, we found 19 times the expected number of myocarditis cases in the vaccination volunteers over background myocarditis rates for this age group. In addition, a 5-fold increase in myocarditis rate was observed subsequent to dose 2 as opposed to dose 1 in 15-year-old males. A total of 67% of all cases occurred with BNT162b2. Of the total myocarditis AE reports, 6 individuals died (1.1%) and of these, 2 were under 20 years of age – 1 was 13. These findings suggest a markedly higher risk for myocarditis subsequent to COVID-19 injectable product use than for other known vaccines, and this is well above known background rates for myocarditis.

COVID-19 injectable products are novel and have a genetic, pathogenic mechanism of action causing uncontrolled expression of SARS-CoV-2 spike protein within human cells. When you combine this fact with the temporal relationship of AE occurrence and reporting, biological plausibility of cause and effect, and the fact that these data are internally and externally consistent with emerging sources of clinical data, it supports a conclusion that the COVID-19 biological products are deterministic for the myocarditis cases observed after injection.

Fully Vaccinated Harvard Business School Shuts Down After Covid Outbreak (TE)

Harvard Business School (HBS) in Boston, Massachusetts has just experienced a large coronavirus outbreak despite more than 90 percent of students and staff being fully vaccinated. The school, which has a population of more than 1700 students, had a significant Covid-19 outbreak after cases started rising in September. This news comes as 95 percent of students and 96 percent of staff at the school being reported as fully vaccinated, yet this did not appear to stop Covid from making its way through those on campus. Two-thirds of all cases recorded in September came from students. A statement from the HBS said that Covid-19 cases among MBA students surged by 20 per cent in just three days.

Dean Srikant Datar of HBS said: “Our positivity rate is 12 times that of the rest of Harvard. These distressing figures are so high that they have attracted the scrutiny of local public health officials.” To avoid further scrutiny from the public and to preserve Harvard’s image, Datar and several of the university’s administrators have announced that teaching will be conducted online for almost all students until the end of October. This change affects almost all first-year and some second-year courses. This is one of the first instances of a major university halting in-person teaching due to Covid-19 outbreaks. The university made its decision after receiving advice from public health officials employed by the city and state.

HBS also announced that it will be increasing the number of Covid tests it forces upon students to three per week. Previously, the university’s requirement was for fully vaccinated students to get tested once per week and unvaccinated students to get tested twice per week. Mark Cautela, spokesman and head of communication for HBS, said in a statement that Harvard is also requesting students to avoid participating in social gatherings with anybody outside of their households and instead socialise with friends online.

Newsom Makes Vaccines Mandatory For All School Children In California (PM)

California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on Friday that all California school children will be required to be vaccinated against Covid-19 as soon as soon as the FDA approval process is complete. “CA will require our kids to get the COVID-19 vaccine to come to school,” Newsom announced on Twitter. “This will go into effect following full FDA approval.” “Our schools already require vaccines for measles, mumps and more. Why? Because vaccines work.” “This is about keeping our kids safe & healthy,” the governor said. This is the first vaccine mandate for K-12 school children in the US. Currently, the FDA allows for children 12 years old and up to receive one of the COVID-19 vaccines which have been approved for use in the US. Teachers and staff will not be required to be vaccinated. Children are at substantially lower risk to COVID than any other demographic. While there have been concerns noted about the risks of vaccines for young people, the FDA has moved ahead with approvals, and is likely to approve lower doses for the under 11 age group.

Headline is a little misleading. Sotomayor, on her own, decided the Court will not take up the case. There was no vote. Pass the hot potato?

You would think with all these mandates flying around, they should rule on the legality.

Supreme Court Rejects NYC Teachers’ Request To Stop Vaccine Mandate (JTN)

The Supreme Court on Friday declined to block New York City’s vaccine mandate for public schools following a petition brought by a group of teachers. According to The Hill, the group of New York City teachers asked for an emergency injunction on Thursday, following a lower court’s ruling that permitted the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate to take effect this coming Monday. The group argued that many teachers would lose their jobs if the Supreme Court didn’t intervene. Justice Sonia Sotomayor—who is responsible for emergency matters originating from New York—denied the request without comment.


According to USA Today, teachers had until 5 p.m. on Friday to provide proof of at least one shot of the vaccine. Failure to do so could result in suspension without pay or potential termination on Monday, Oct. 4. This marks the second time the court has refused to take up a vaccine mandate case. The first one was from a group of students who sued Indiana University over its vaccine requirements. Justice Amy Coney Barret rejected the student’s petition and declined their request for emergency relief. More lawsuits from teachers are expected [..]

The Looming Energy Crisis: People Are Going To Die This Winter (Blain)

For many months myself and many of the investors I work with have become increasingly concerned at the growing instability and insecurity of energy markets. The 4 times spike in Gas prices this year has been a shocking wake-up call, highlighting energy insecurity in Europe and particularly the UK. Gas prices will remain elevated for months to come. The consequences are going to be brutal – and fatal for some. Energy – whether derived from fossil fuels, nuclear or renewables – is a commodity and the critical thing about commodities is: “You can’t print commodities like you can print money. The rules are not the same,” says my good friend and head of commodities at Shard, Ashley Boolell. Commodities are volatile and dangerous. Oil has doubled in recent months. But the thing about Gold, Silver, Palladium and copper prices is; no matter how volatile they are, they are simply investment opportunities or traps, and are unlikely to kill us.

Energy is different. It can kill us. That was conclusively demonstrated earlier this year in Texas. A swift series of winter storms crashed the Texan grid when gas infrastructure failed in the cold, renewables weren’t delivering, and the deregulation of its energy system had delinked Texas from both US power Grids – making it difficult to import energy. Over 200 people died as a result of power outages. Fast forward to this winter, and the UK and Europe are in the direct firing line of the coming energy storm. The security of energy supplies has never looked less certain. In the UK, neglected storage means we have the capacity to story 3-4 days of Gas. The recent collapse in sterling has been linked to the panic over Petrol supplies, escalating and cascading supply chain failures impacting industry and growing woes blamed on Brexit. I would add questions about how the UK’s status as a first world economy with zero energy security will line up.

How has this happened? Why? Well… that’s a long tale… But, it will be mightily embarrassing for the Boris Johnson Government if the first UK power outages occur during the COP26 Climate Circus in Glasgow in November. COP26 has driven the Government’s agenda and ambition to be seen as more green, more carbon neutral and more ESG than anyone else. I’ve heard tales of cabinet ministers throwing sweary hissy fits when asked to support policies that don’t immediately square with green policies perceived as vote winners. As I’ve written many times – ESG is well intentioned, but perhaps the most dangerous force in Economics today.

Investment managers rely on people giving them money to manage. That is why every single fund manager on the planet is fixated on polishing their green credentials, demonstrating how they are funding ESG compliant investments, and eschewing anything even vaguely linked to hydrocarbons. It is also why Saudi Arabia is polishing its credentials by improbably launching and successfully selling a Green Bond. The result is a chronic failure of common sense across the investment industry. Fund managers claim to be investing in our futures. If that is true – how do they expect the world can transition seamlessly from dirty hydrocarbons to clean renewables overnight? It takes 20 years to get planning and build a nuclear power station – while wind is proving fickle, unreliable, far less efficient and difficult to maintain.

“Given the many years, spent under both Obama and Trump, trying to shore up this claim by the most digitally advanced states in the world, it comes as something of a surprise to learn that they came up with nothing.”

The US Found A ‘Lawful’ Way To Disappear Assange (Cook)

The Yahoo report makes clear too that the surveillance operation against Assange and Wikileaks intensified dramatically after Snowden released his confidential documents in 2013 in collaboration with reporter Glenn Greenwald. The Snowden files showed that the US had begun expanding its ambition to use new digital technology to covertly surveil the rest of the world. Now it was increasingly turning that technological prowess inwards to covertly surveil its own population. A transparency organisation like Wikileaks, it quickly became obvious, was a major threat to the US intelligence services’ plans. According to Yahoo’s sources, it was the Obama administration that began surveilling Wikileaks more intensively and threw the net wider to expose its networks.

The CIA was already centrally involved, creating a special “Wikileaks team” that worked closely with other friendly spy agencies – including one can presume the Five Eyes intelligence-sharing states that also comprise Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. (One official, William Evanina, who recently retired as a top US counterintelligence official, notes the key role the Five Eyes group played in Assange’s case.) The goal, Yahoo was told by Evanina, its main named source, was to “tie [Wikileaks] back to hostile state intelligence services”. In other words, the aim was to suggest not that Assange was interested in transparency or acting out of principle but that he wanted to undermine the US on behalf of a hostile foreign power.

Assange’s fate was sealed within the Obama administration in summer 2016 when Wikileaks released a cache of Democratic party emails that cast Obama’s chosen successor, Hillary Clinton, in a damning light and showed that the party had rigged its election procedures to stop her main challenger, Bernie Sanders, from winning. As an aside, the Yahoo report notes that the idea of kidnapping Assange – in violation of Ecuador and the UK’s sovereignty – actually preceded Pompeo’s arrival at the CIA. Despite Yahoo’s focus on Pompeo, it was actually Obama and the Democratic party’s thirst for vengeance that paved the way for Trump’s appointee to have viable options of either prosecuting Assange for espionage or abducting him. Obama’s officials immediately tarred Assange as conspiring with Donald Trump, Clinton’s rival for the presidential election.

He was thereby dragged into an establishment conspiracy theory, Russiagate, that claimed Trump was serving as a puppet of the Kremlin. Given the many years, spent under both Obama and Trump, trying to shore up this claim by the most digitally advanced states in the world, it comes as something of a surprise to learn that they came up with nothing. Evidence of Wikileaks collusion with Russia appears never to have surfaced, even though it became an implicit, driving assumption behind the Russiagate claims. One unusually honest official, Robert Litt, a former general counsel of the Office of the Director for National Intelligence, observed to Yahoo of the claims made by Pompeo that Assange was acting on behalf of the Russians: “Based on the information that I had seen, I thought he was out over his skis on that.”

    I found this interesting: the closest genetic match to the Covid19 genome appears in a bat population in Laos.
    *********
    COVID-19 origins: Closest viruses to SARS-CoV-2 found in Laos

    • Numerous theories exist around the origins of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19, but none has yet been proven.
    • Parts of the genome of the SARS-CoV-2 virus are so unusualTrusted Source
that it has given rise to conspiracy theories that the virus must have been developed in a lab.
    • Researchers have now discovered in bats living in caves in Laos strains of viruses so similar to SARS-CoV-2 that they believe they could infect humans.
    • This discovery could prove the natural origins of the COVID-19 pandemic and that direct bat-to-human transmission of the virus is a possible cause of the pandemic. […]

    I saw the headline in google news’ health section this morning, skipped over it, but then decided I wanted to read the article after all. So I went back to google news (within a minute of seeing the headline) – and it was gone. I had to do a search to find the article. I guess this article does not match the narrative of blaming China, so someone quickly pulled it.

    Question. In this Japanese government report on the bio distribution of lipid nano particles in rats, how should I interpret the blood related levels (bottom of chart) and someone’s decision not to report the % of Administered dose for the blood related levels (bottom right)?

    Given that whole blood contains the liquid fraction of blood (i.e., plasma) as well as the cellular elements that lead to clotting under certain circumstances. Which include red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells, and other components.

    Human rights lawyer @SDonziger was sentenced to six months in prison today for contempt of court. For the first time in US history in such a case, he was prosecuted not by the US Justice Dept, but by a private attorney who worked for Chevron.”

    Well that’s a relief. At last we can cut out the middle man and be honest about it. The Federales are run by Pfizer and Chevron. They are the senior partners.

    But there’s an answer! Moar government! More taxes, more rules, more obedience, more centralization. You know, the kind of advanced centralization that now ignores the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress. Including those extra 500 people is clearly too messy and localized.

    “Despite the reprieve from COVID-19 granted by vaccination programs, SARS-CoV-2 continues to ravage”

    That’s not what Iceland and Afghanistan say. They say the disease returned one minute after starting vaccines. …Or is everyone really bad at reading data?

    “SARS-CoV-2 is likely to become endemic”

    …And bad at science also, I guess. “Endemic” means it’s everywhere, dum-dum, so everyone’s had it and has natural immunity. We win, it’s over. Declare a victory and go home. Stop helping.

    “Hospitals Should Hire, Not Fire, Nurses with Natural Immunity (Kulldorff)”

    Other states will, and benefit wildly. They have lower taxes and broad freedoms. All NYC is pouring out as they collapse into “Escape from NY”, Wall St is in Miami, but the other states Jersey and CA too.

    How can hospitals best protect their patients from Covid disease? It is an enormously important question,”

    It would be if anybody died from it, but we’re at 99.3% safe with three comorbidities. Do they usually take such incredible measures? Obviously no. Doctors and properly prescribed drugs are a leading cause of death.

    New York City is a leader in world liberalism. For years — and especially since May 2020 — its politicians have mangled their schools, their parks, their police force, and their courts, all in the name of fighting racism.”

    Racism FOR white Karen and against Blacks and Jews. As always. #Winning! We, the White Karen Association of America, the new D.A.R, D.A.C., proudly enact every rule of the KKK, in a NEW alliance between Progressive movement and White Supremacy. My children must be made safe from the NEW dirty plague of Blacks and Jews, not JUST in my Brooklyn home, but Nationwide, worldwide even. I won’t stop until they are all starved, purged, and cease to exist in any culture of their own, with any freedoms of their own, and the world is safe for White Karens again. #MWKGA

    …See why parody is impossible for these people? They just say “No it isn’t” and #Reality ceases to exist again.

    Huh. Remember when they said they were all nuts for going mental on California for removing the religious exemption, and they would never use that plow through Human Rights and the Constitution to harm anyone? Ah, those were the good old days. Does anyone have a new Conspiracy Theory? All mine have come true. We were right, right, right, right right. A hundred and thousand times right.

    How are those vaccine passports coming? Where you need one to “Buy or sell”, to eat or get health care?

    Nope. We’re still a bunch of idiots who don’t know nothing, and the very next blindingly obvious thing we say … like Oz is building camps for dissidents, not patients … is totally stupid and wrong.

    See, this is what the feeling of “Shame” and “Embarrassment” is for. So when you’re wrong, you’ll mend your ways and get it right next time. This is what “You’re Fired!” is for. Shame is good. It’s healthy. Shame works. But in a country, a society with no shame, they trip over the truth then get up and dust themselves off. Over and over each day, apparently. “You can’t judge me!”

    Truth is changing

    the media is starting to get curious about the growing reports of breakthrough infections

    The molnupiravir cocktail – molnupiravir may be limited to patients at high risk of developing severe disease, Swanstrom said.
    (However, an Ivermectin cocktail can improve COVID-19 symptoms by > 80%)

    As much as 80% of all Covid-19 cases are either asymptomatic or mild, with only 20% of patients sick enough to be hospitalised, added Dr Yvonne Maldonado, professor, infectious diseases in pediatrics and health research and policy, Stanford University, California
    ———–
    Cover your ass
    There are problems with the vaccines

    analysis of the British Yellow Card reporting system and found it to be unreliable. ‘We can conclude that the Yellow Card reporting scheme can provide some limited information that may be useful for alerting the UK public to possible adverse effects of the COVID-19 vaccines. However, the initial conception of the scheme as a purely descriptive rather than as an experimental undertaking means that it cannot address the real issues that are of crucial importance to the UK public. These issues are whether there are causal relationships between vaccination with the PF and AZ vaccines and serious adverse effects such as death, and if so, what are the size of these effects.’

You should have been thinking it should have been bigger. You should thank God the government saved the big banks and their investors. Now, if you talk about bailouts for everybody else, there comes a place where if you just start bailing out all the individuals instead of telling them to adapt, the culture dies.

    There is a saying that “life resembles high school” and that can be an apt analogy for our times, especially the A students vs the C students dynamic.

    A students knew the answers and viewed their social rank, in part, based on their academic achievement. Teachers would say x+y=z and A students would regurgitate, understanding and curiosity not required. These kids knew the rules and viewed them as ironclad. Getting As though wasn’t always enough to be part of that crowd; you could still go to the wrong school or have the wrong parents.

    C students included those more interested in things outside of schoolwork as well as those unconcerned with teachers’ threats of the importance of their subject. A group more likely to explore outside the boundaries, willing to face the consequences.

    Of course there were the school administrators. Very important people. They get to put you on time out and if you really step out of line with the ever present threat of putting strong words in your permanent record. If you were able to get them in your pocket, luck tended to favor you.

    The current system rewards the A students via higher socioeconomic status. So when we went into lock down, A students were able to work from home and get into yoga or learn how to bake. C students were the group that were initially laid off. Then hired back quickly as they were essential, and heroes. In the summer of ’20, how many A students ate hamburger helper or worried about being in a crowded factory or restaurant setting in the midst of a pandemic.

    Vaccine adoption has been no different. A students were rewarded by obeying authority – in school with good grades and today with corner offices. When the shot rolled out, they were first to get it and thought well of themselves for doing their part.

    C students have a lived reality of being fucked by the system more than those above them. They know how much the government has their welfare in mind. So it should not be a surprise that this group has a 30% adoption rate. And those that made a decision for themselves not to take it, are now getting the boot heel. Wanna work? Wanna be able to shop or go to a bar. Wanna be able to feed and clothe your children? Wanna have an existence you fucking unperson?

    Today’s A students believe that their manicured lifestyles are on pause because the class dunces are refusing to do what the teacher says. That’s what is keeping them from their privileged lives. What is worse: that authority is pushing this agenda in this fashion or that there are so many who bought it and are now fighting in favor of it.

    Perhaps the upside for the C students is those are the ones who had loyal friends in school. Their opponents will cut a friends throat to move up the ladder. We will see which side prevails.

That is amazing, that has got to be the pinnacle of justice corruption anywhere in the world, i am truely impressed.

    * Be careful whom you criticize. You could go to jail if found in Contempt of Chevron, Contempt of Pfizer Or Contempt of Facebook.

    * Lifesaving Covid 19 Cocktail: Molnupiravir, Vitamin D, VItamin C, Zinc, Ivermectin and Hydrochloroquine. Active Ingredient: Molnupiravir

    * Just to be safe NYC fires all firemen who smell like smoke and all policemen who fail a paraffin test,

    * You get what you pay for so immunity that didn’t cost anything is worthless.
    You get what you measure so don’t measure what you don’t want to get.
    You get what you give so give ‘em hell.

    * Governor Hochul: Gott Mit Uns

    * Fact: 99.93% of all people who have died on earth never ate potato chips. So potato chips save lives.

    * How to catch Covid in three easy steps:
    1) Get vaccinated
    2) Join the Choir of the Vaccinated
    3) Sing We are the Champions together often, long and loud

    * In order to keep kids safe and healthy require Covid vaccination. Some will take a hit for the team. The team thanks them for their life long debilitating sacrifice.

    * Greed is good. Investors care deeply about you because if you die it could negatively impact their investments. Thanks a million, investors.

    * Rand Paul insults HHS secretary for insulting people with natural immunity. Paul takes says he is pro-vaccine but makes an exception for people who already had Covid-19, but people who haven’t had Covid 19 should still get vaccinated.

    * You know the US is in trouble when professional basketball players understand the science better than the head of the CDC.

    * Boosters don’t work because they try to win against yesterday’s game plan. The virus has moved on. The Pfizer, Moderna and JnJ jabs are so 2020.

    * How to reduce Medicare expenses? Kill the recipients. How to avoid getting killed on medicare? Keep yourself healthy so you don’t receive Medicare. How to keep yourself healthy? Diet, supplements, exercise, intermittent fasting.

    * NSW Premier caught in bed with big pharma with big pharma on top. NSW premier now expecting. They share the shame but she carries the responsibility.

    * Make sense to me: If you enter a business and are possibly an asymptomatic spreader of a disease you will be arrested unless you’ve received a shot which makes it more likely that you will be an asymptomatic spreader.

    “ A pre-print study that overstated the risk of contracting myocarditis following COVID-19 vaccination was retracted due to a miscalculation – but not before it featured in social media posts questioning vaccine safety”

    That is very good. That means that outside of the circles of the FDA, CDC, WHO, etc., where the Covid narrative is being pushed, that science is still functioning. That is why medical studies undergo peer review. That is why they are labeled “preprint” before peer review. If anyone isn’t aware of the significance of peer review, then that person is ignorant. Ignorance happens.

    Of course, for the FDA, CDC, etc., if they discover that they made a mistake (oops! People believe they had Covid from a PCR test cranked up to 35+, but didn’t really, and have no natural immunity!), instead of owning their mistake, suggesting all such cases get antibody testing to verify whether or not they achieved immunity, they sweep it under the rug and demand that all get vaccinated.

    We are witnessing a business model which has finally been successful via corruption and propaganda. Just par for the course, in many W countries.

    Propaganda can be incredibly effective! Ppl become intoxicated, illuminated the F would say – see for ex. some Governor in the US who said the vax is the will of God. The Vax is so important, so vital, so encompassing, so beneficial, there can be no other rationale, explanation, justification, except from on High. The VAX is, Divinely so, Ordained. Didn’t the Pope say the vax is a Gift from God? – I might be mistaken about that?

    In 2009 the H1N1 “swine flu” hit.

    In France, Roselyne Bachelot, Health Min., ordered 94 million doses of vax against it. (Her prof. qualifications are as a pharmacist.)

    The vaxxes, concocted, in the W, by Sanofi-Pasteur, Glaxo Smith Kline and Novartis were produced in a matter of months and the clinical trials were dodgy or not carried out. (A “great efficacity” article for one or some was published in the NEJM.) Various authorisations EU, F, were handed out.

    Kathleen Sebelius, in the US, signed a no-liability clause for the vax producers. The US authorised the GSK vax plus others – idk which. F concentrated on Sanofi-Pasteur ..! A special vax for babies was to be developed .. !

    F. Vaccination campaigns were implemented. First on the line to be jabbed were health care workers, security, rescue ppl. Vax centers, outside of all existing med. circuit – the photos look exactly like the ones we see now – were set up, to vax 6 million ppl per month.

    F. Between Nov. 2009 (the aim was to prevent the winter ‘surge’) and June 2010 only 4.16 million ppl were vaxxed. The campaign flopped. Nobody showed up!

    Mucho ‘medical’ criticism of the vaxxes were made. The WHO defended the vaxxes. Oppositional strands were social, political, economical.

    —-sidebar. Some highlights of this epidemic (not labelled a pandemic). Mercosur requested the suspension all patents to favor the ‘local’ production of vaxxes. Karamanlis (Greece) ordered all Greeks and residents to be vaccinated, no exceptions. —

    Roselyne’s plan was estimated to cost a-hem far more than 1 billion Euros. In Jan. 2010 (2 months after the orders for the vaxxes) Roselyne cancelled the order for 50 million doses, and tried to sell or gift those already paid for to other countries. In Feb. 2010, an ‘Enquiry’ was launched, she was vilified, attacked, etc. She was demoted / quit as Health Min. in 2010. She was then nominated Min. of Solidarity and Social Cohesion 2010-2012. (Fillon Gvmt.)

    The CDC in the US advisory at the time, Q and A on H1N1 vax, see the same considerations, formulations, language, etc.

    https://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/vaccination/public/vaccination_qa_pub.htm

    wiki on H1N1 epidemic and vax:

    snippet. By April 2010, it was apparent that most of the vaccine was not needed. The US government had bought 229 million doses of H1N1 vaccines of which 91 million doses were used; of the surplus, 5 million doses were stored in bulk, 15 million doses were sent to developing countries and 71 million doses were destroyed. The WHO is planning to examine if it overreacted to the H1N1 outbreak.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_swine_flu_pandemic_vaccine

    Why exactly this first effort at universal vax submission with boosters flopped is a task for a team of experts… Big Pharma learnt many lessons and the subsequent effort, 10 or so years on, is a stellar success.

    Thursday Night Follow-up:
    Thanks for the kind, thoughtful and helpful words brothers and sisters. Friday was a big day at work.
    For all of the personal stresses, and judgment I can feel coming in from some at work (not those I see every day, who have kind eyes) the week went OK for patient care; no crises.

    Phoenixvoice: Thanks for understanding. I have so many flows of projects, spirit work, professional work, seeing, understanding, merging, colliding, loving and forgiving, not to mention keeping the garden in time with the seasons. I cannot drop it to engage in an attack. I would use my resources, and I do not have the upper hand, and I still care for these people. We are on different sides of “history” right now.

    Sumac.Carol: Thanks. I am doing what I can do each day. I am getting back to the homestead projects in Yoakum today. Jenny and I are shelling dry beans, black-eyed peas, and cleaning out the bad bits.
    Beans are cooking on the stove. I’m trying a new shelling/cleaning technique on blackeyed peas. It worked well on black beans. My one-legged friend, Dan and I worked it out last weekend. It involves an axe, head down, in a 5 gallon bucket, to gently crush the dry beans, hand cleaning the chaff off the top, then pouring the bucket into a clean wheelbarrow, through the wind of a strong fan.

    Formerly T-Bear: “That which can be spoken is not the Tao.” I’m working on it, brother, really, inwardly, outwardly, daily, haltingly, flowingly, growingly.

    CitizenX: 🙂

    @ Veracious Poet: I have appreciated your stories and insights (demo-charges placed long ago in WTC Bldgs, for instance). They are rare down here at ground level. Avoid the urge to inaction. Do something constructive, and see where it leads. Despair and nihilism don’t prepare for what is coming, don’t create, don’t reduce suffering.

    So it happened, the director general of the organization where I work has decreed that because the euphemistically named green pass is mandatory for companies in Italy where we also have offices, from 15 October the “green pass” will also be required to enter the Dutch site. Never mind that it’s illegal in Holland.

    Conundrums of the unvaxxed:
    Any ideas on how to address the problem of vax mandated for biz with 100+ employees? The best option would be to simply not shop at those businesses. However, when living in a large metropolis, in many sectors of the economy there *are* no businesses with less than 100 employees. I know of no grocery stores in a 50 mile radius that aren’t part of a chain. Sure, there is a farmer’s market a few miles away for a few hours on Saturday morning, but there are many food sectors not covered by the farmers market. (Nobody local has avocados….). Wear a pin that says “solidarity with the unvaxxed” while shopping? I know that the next step will be disallowing the unvaxxed from entry. If (when) that happens, do I continue to patronize the chain stores through pickup? (Will I not be able to select my own avocados?). Would the unvaxxed even be allowed at the outdoor farmers market at a public park? It’s fine for me to choose not to patronize such stores, limit the foods I eat to those produced locally, etc., but I have three teens that are picky eaters, and their dad wants them vaxxed.

    • Fauci Confronted About CDC Claims About “Breakthrough” Infections

    Some questionable claims that Fauci made yesterday:

    …let me just give you the science and the facts. If you are an unvaccinated person, you have five times the likelihood of getting infected, 11 times the likelihood of being hospitalized and 11 times the likelihood of dying, compared to someone who’s been vaccinated. So, the data showing the benefit of vaccines is incontrovertible. If you look at the people who have died from COVID-19, overwhelmingly 90 plus percent of them are unvaccinated.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2021/10/01/cnbc-transcript-dr-anthony-fauci-speaks-with-cnbcs-closing-bell-today.html

    Today I looked at the recent data from one state (Massachusetts) as a quick fact-check of Fauci’s claims. Instead of “five times the likelihood of getting infected,” becoming an official Covid case is about 2 times as likely for those who aren’t fully vaxxed.
    More important, the breakthrough cases now have approximately the same odds of dying as the non-breakthrough cases (a rough estimate of the Case Fatality Rate is 0.64% for breakthrough cases, and 0.67% non-breakthrough cases, using the most recent four weeks of data).

    Some details:

    For the most recent week of data, 37% of the Covid cases were fully vaccinated, and 38% of the Covid deaths were fully vaccinated.

    For the most recent “month” (4 weeks) of data, 35% of the Covid cases were fully vaccinated, and 34% of the Covid deaths were fully vaccinated.

    (As of 9/25, approximately 66% of the state’s total population is fully vaccinated.)

    From August 28 to September 25, there was an 89% increase in the number of breakthrough cases, and a 76% increase in the number of breakthrough deaths.

    Looking at the ratio of deaths to cases, for a rough approximation of the likelihood of dying, during the period August 28 to September 25:
    The number of breakthrough deaths were 0.64% of the number of breakthrough cases.
    The number of non-breakthrough deaths were 0.67% of the number of non-breakthrough cases.

    I’ve notice that none of the recent “truthtellers” have gotten the Michael Hastings / Gary Webb /
    Michael Ruppert treatment

    confusing or

    normalizing
