Senior NIH Doctor Pushes Back on COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates (ET)

A top infectious disease doctor has raised alarm about COVID-19 vaccine mandates despite top federal officials recommending them for businesses, schools, and other institutions. Dr. Matthew Memoli, who runs a clinical studies unit within the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases—headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci—is scheduled to argue against COVID-19 vaccine mandates during a Dec. 1 seminar hosted by the agency, according to David Wendler, a senior NIH bioethicist who is planning the seminar. “There’s a lot of debate within the NIH about whether [a vaccine mandate] is appropriate,” he told The Wall Street Journal. “It’s an important, hot topic.”

Memoli had told Fauci in a July 30 email that he believes “the way we are using the vaccines is wrong,” adding that mandated vaccines are “extraordinarily problematic,” according to the WSJ. In comments to the paper, Memoli said that he supports COVID-19 vaccination in high-risk groups including obese people and the elderly. However, widespread vaccinations for people who have a low risk of death or severe illness from COVID-19 could hamper the U.S. population’s ability to develop more robust protection against the virus via previous infections, he said. A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study released last month suggested that those who had a previous COVID-19 infection saw a five times higher chance of testing positive than those who were fully vaccinated and never had COVID-19.

Dr. Jeffrey Klausner, who previously conducted a study that suggested people with natural immunity are at low risk of reinfection, told The Epoch Times that the CDC’s research was observational and said that “randomized controlled clinical trials are the gold standard of medical evidence.” Memoli also told the paper that he has sought an exemption from the federal vaccine mandate on religious grounds, saying he is willing to risk his job and medical license for the right not to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Regarding the discussion, Memoli said that “part of my career is to share my expert opinions, right or wrong … I mean, if they all end up saying I’m wrong, that’s fine. I want to have the discussion.”

Covid-Resistant People Point Way To Universal Coronavirus Vaccine (NS)

During the first half of 2020, around 700 healthcare workers in the UK were tested weekly as part of a crowdfunded study called COVIDsortium. Most of these people, who wore protective equipment, never tested positive for covid-19 in PCR tests or developed covid-19 antibodies – proteins that bind to the outside of viruses, preventing cells from being infected. However, when Leo Swadling and Mala Maini at University College London and their colleagues looked more closely, they found some of those who tested negative had a protein in their blood that is linked to covid-19 infection, as well as T cell responses to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. T cells are part of the immune system. It appears these people had what Swadling calls an “abortive infection”, where a strong, early T cell response enabled them to get rid of the virus very quickly.

Cells infected by viruses sound the alarm by displaying viral proteins on their surface, and T cells are the immune cells that learn to recognise these proteins and destroy infected cells. Crucially, while antibodies can only target proteins on the outside of a virus, T cells can learn to recognise any viral proteins. When the team looked at early blood samples from the people who had an abortive infection, they found that even before being exposed to SARS-CoV-2, they had some T cells that could recognise the proteins that this virus uses to replicate itself inside infected cells. The most likely explanation is that these people were often exposed to the existing human coronaviruses that cause around 10 per cent of colds, says Maini. “We don’t know the historic infections of these individuals, so we don’t know for sure where the T cells are coming from,” she says.

The proteins involved in viral replication are very similar in SARS-CoV-2 and other human and animal coronaviruses, meaning that if vaccines can be developed that elicit a strong T cell response against these proteins, they should protect against a very broad range of coronaviruses – a so-called universal or pan-coronavirus vaccine. One way to do this would be to add mRNAs coding for these proteins to mRNA vaccines that target the virus’s external spike protein. Adding extra components to the next generation of coronavirus vaccines might protect both against any new variants that might evolve and against animal coronaviruses that could jump into people and spark a new pandemic, says Swadling. “There is a strong rationale for adding these proteins alongside the spike protein,” he says.

“..we are never quite immune to the flu, because its strategy is to exploit the way our immune systems learn.”

More on Original Antigenic Sin (eugypp)

To review: We have now had ten months of mass vaccination against SARS-CoV-2. Nearly 7 billion doses have been administered worldwide. This unprecedented campaign has not eradicated Corona; it has not even suppressed infections. Instead, case statistics have ballooned almost everywhere. While the vaccinated appear to enjoy some protection against severe outcomes, skyrocketing transmission means most countries have seen little benefit, on balance, from their universal vaccination campaigns. The most pressing question has become, simply: What is going on?

I’ve explored a few different possibilities. First, there seems to be a Marek Effect at work. We might imagine that all viruses have an optimal level of population-wide virulence – an advantageous degree of aggression at which they can spread effectively, while not driving their hosts underground too soon. Certain Delta sub-strains, previously punished for their excessive aggression in unvaccinated populations, have likely been favoured by the vaccines, which reduce symptoms in the vaccinated without preventing infection for more than a few months. Our vaccines reduced the average virulence of SARS-2, and the virus adapted to reattain the prior, optimal balance.

But the virus and its interactions with human hosts constitute a complex system. In such systems, it is very unlikely that any effect can be put down to a single cause. The Public Health England data provide powerful reasons to suspect that the vaccines may be compromising immunity to SARS-2 via Original Antigenic Sin. This is not a crazy internet fantasy, but a well-observed limitation of human immunity. It is the primary reason that respiratory viruses like influenza return again and again. Despite multiple reinfections across the whole population, we are never quite immune to the flu, because its strategy is to exploit the way our immune systems learn.

The mechanisms of Original Antigenic Sin are not fully understood, but we have a rough idea of what might be happening. When a virus infects your body for the first time, your naive memory B cells imprint on specific virus proteins, or antigens, presented to them. These B cells then become either memory B cells or plasma cells. Forever after, they specialise in producing antibodies against those specific antigens. When a slightly mutated form of the virus arrives, these memory B-cells begin pouring forth the antibodies they learned to produce during the first infection. These antibodies bind to multiple epitopes on the virus particles, and in the process they give the slower-moving naive B-cells little chance to learn about any new, mutant virus features.

Original Antigenic Sin was most influentially described by Thomas Francis in 1960. He noted that, regardless of whatever influenza A strains were in circulation, subjects tended to have dominant antibody responses to the strains that were current in their early childhood:

The antibody of childhood is largely a response to … the virus causing the first Type A influenza infection of the lifetime. As the group grows older and subsequent infections take place, antibodies to additional families of virus are acquired. But … the antibody which is first established continues to characterize that cohort of the population throughout its life. The antibody forming mechanisms have been highly conditioned by the first stimulus, so that later infections with strains of the same type successively enhance the original antibody to maintain it at the highest level at all times in that age group. The imprint established by the original virus infection governs the antibody response thereafter. This we have called the doctrine of original antigenic sin.

Inflammation.

Most Covid19-Specific Antibodies In Obese Are Autoimmune, Not Neutralizing (Nat)

Thirty serum samples from individuals who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 infection by RT-PCR were collected from inpatient and outpatient settings. Of these, 15 were lean (BMI < 25) and 15 were obese (BMI ≥30). Control serum samples were from 30 uninfected individuals, age-, gender-, and BMI-matched, recruited before the current pandemic. Neutralizing and autoimmune antibodies were measured by ELISA. IgG autoimmune antibodies were specific for malondialdehyde (MDA), a marker of oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation, and for adipocyte-derived protein antigens (AD), markers of virus-induced cell death in the obese adipose tissue.

SARS-CoV-2 infection induces neutralizing antibodies in all lean but only in few obese COVID-19 patients. SARS-CoV-2 infection also induces anti-MDA and anti-AD autoimmune antibodies more in lean than in obese patients as compared to uninfected controls. Serum levels of these autoimmune antibodies, however, are always higher in obese versus lean COVID-19 patients. Moreover, because the autoimmune antibodies found in serum samples of COVID-19 patients have been correlated with serum levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a general marker of inflammation, we also evaluated the association of anti-MDA and anti-AD antibodies with serum CRP and found a positive association between CRP and autoimmune antibodies.

Our results highlight the importance of evaluating the quality of the antibody response in COVID-19 patients with obesity, particularly the presence of autoimmune antibodies, and identify biomarkers of self-tolerance breakdown. This is crucial to protect this vulnerable population at higher risk of responding poorly to infection with SARS-CoV-2 than lean controls.

“The normal acceptable threshold for SAEs is 5%. Once you cross that threshold, and more than 5% of your patients are reporting SAEs, you have to stop the trial and investigate for cause.”

Why They Didn’t Stop the Trials (Vox)

Last week I caught up with a friend who worked on some of the first Moderna vaccine human trials in the US. He revealed to me that it is indeed as bad as we thought it was. He had worked at a research center 6 years testing various drugs and was in charge of describing and filing reports for serious adverse reactions (SAEs). SAE’s include anything from getting hit by a bus to having an anaphylactic reaction to the drug at the center (basically any serious health event has to be recorded and investigated for any link to the clinical trial for the duration of the trial.) For a normal week, he’d have 1 or 2 SAEs to file and report. When they started the Moderna trial, within a week he was having to come in early and stay late to get through stacks of SAEs.

The normal acceptable threshold for SAEs is 5%. Once you cross that threshold, and more than 5% of your patients are reporting SAEs, you have to stop the trial and investigate for cause. Well, they had a rate of at least 16% after a few weeks. So, confused as to why the trial had not been flagged and halted, they looked into their SAE database and found that the majority of the ones they had reported to the agency responsible (I think FDA) were missing.They called said agency and were told that there were a high volume of SAEs being reported from multiple centers, so they were going through and removing the “irrelevant ones.” They claimed that the state of the pandemic warranted an unconventional approach to research. Obviously this is insane, even to the trusting individuals my friend worked with so the head of his clinic called a conference of the other 20 or so sites in that region and they all were having the same experience. In other words, this wasn’t a fluke.

Things eventually got so bad that my friends’ boss told the company he was contracted with that he was going to discontinue the trial because people were having so many SAEs including seizures, clots, myocarditis, death, etc. The contracting company told him that he was obliged to finish the trial, from what I gather because the official number of SAEs was below the 5% threshold. Friend’s boss said “go take a hike, I quit.” Walked away from his head job at the research center where he made millions.

Karl’s take on the Vox article above.

So WAS It Fraud? (Denninger)

In general my rule as anyone who’s followed my reporting over the last close to 15 years knows is that without sourcing I won’t run it no matter where it came from. But there are times exceptions are called for and this is one of them. Among the reasons for my decision in this instance are that at least one instance of serious fraud in the trials on teens has been documented by the victim herself attempting to take said message public — in a wheelchair — and having it spiked by the media. That standing alone might have been enough but in this case its even more-compelling because the claim can be verified as the reports are it was across multiple locations.

The claim thus must be run to the ground one way or the other: That the people conducting the original trials on the vaccines knew damn well they were dangerous and someone — likely the FDA — was intentionally deleting reports of adverse events. This is either true or it is not. If its true then every party who was involved and did nothing to blow the whistle is responsible for injecting somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 million Americans (and God knows how many worldwide) with a drug that was known to be very dangerous — and those dangers were intentionally concealed. That’s all discoverable, by the way, should someone sue. If its true then Moderna knew it too. Pfizer and J&J, from the field data I have discussed, likely knew had similar experiences and knew as well because the odds are extremely high their formulations and tests produced the same results.

May I remind you that one of the exceptions to the PREP Act’s liability shield is intentional misconduct. You can’t sue the government generally but if you can prove that the drugmakers knew of this data — and if it happened they did know because their people or their contracted labs were seeing it and reporting it — and they deliberately sat back and let anyone including the FDA delete the records and thus tamper with the trial their liability shield goes “poof” like Joe Biden’s fart in front of the Duchess.

There are a hell of a lot of dead and injured people out there, and the VAERS reports, even under-represented as they are, shows that these jabs are wildly more-dangerous than any other in United States history. The adverse event rate is high enough to have immediately terminated the trials in the fall of 2020 if it had been reported. Discovery is a bitch folks, and there’s no way around a subpoena in a situation like this. Oh, and since the government was directly involved the issuance of a “mandate” in the face of this deception, assuming it occurred and was deliberate, is quite-arguably intentional manslaughter and no, government officials are not immune from being prosecuted for that.

• no Moderna vaccine below the age of 30
• no Moderna vaccine for pregnant women

But I don’t see the 2nd point in the article.

Germany Recommends Only Biontech/Pfizer Vaccine For Under-30s (R.)

People aged under 30 in Germany should only receive the Biontech/Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine as it causes fewer heart inflammations in younger people than the Moderna (MRNA.O)shot, an advisory committee said on Wednesday. The committee, known as STIKO, recommended that pregnant women also be inoculated only with the Biontech/Pfizer vaccine, regardless of their age. The recommendations are based on new safety data from the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI), Germany’s authority in charge of vaccines, and new international data. Several other European Union countries have already recommended limiting use of the Moderna vaccine among younger people. The German PEI data showed a “report rate” for heart inflammations of 11.71 per 100,000 shots with the Moderna vaccine for men in the 18-29 age group, compared with 4.68 for the Biontech/Pfizer shot.


For women, the rate was 2.95 with Moderna and 0.97 with Biontech/Pfizer. In the 12-17 age group, the rate was 11.41 for males with the Moderna shot compared with 4.81 for Biontech/Pfizer. There was no data provided for females in the lower age group. France’s public health authority this week recommended that under-30s be given the Pfizer vaccine when available instead of the Moderna shot. Finland and Sweden have also limited use of the Moderna shot. read more The EU’s drug regulator said last month it concluded in its review that Moderna’s COVID-19 booster vaccine could be given to people aged 18 years and above, at least six months after the second dose. On Tuesday Moderna applied for European authorization of its COVID-19 vaccine in children aged 6-11 years, weeks after it delayed a similar filing with U.S. regulators.

Everyone’s reinventing the wheel; unfortunately, for everyone it’s their own wheel.

Taiwan Halts 2nd-dose BioNTech Vaccinations For Ages 12-17 (TN)

Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) head Chen Shih-chung said on Wednesday (Nov. 10) that a panel of experts has decided to suspend administering second doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech (BNT) COVID vaccine to children 12-17 years old amid concerns it may increase the risk of myocarditis. Cases of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the outer lining of the heart) have been reported after BNT vaccination of children between 12 and 17 years of age. According to U.S. statistics, the risk of youths experiencing myocarditis after receiving the second BNT dose is 10 times higher than after the first dose, CNA reported.


Some countries have adjusted their policies regarding administering COVID-19 vaccines to adolescents. For instance, Hong Kong has changed from two doses of BNT to only a single dose for those aged 12-17. The U.K. has done something similar, recommending only one shot for children between 12 and 18 years of age, per CNA.Chen said that the Ministry of Health and Welfare’s Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) has decided to halt administration of second BNT doses to this age group for two weeks, during which time experts and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) physicians will look at the 16 cases of myocarditis among adolescents after BNT vaccination before making a final decision on whether to go ahead with the second shot.

“Our very youngest children need to get the vaccine and we need to make sure they are safe..”

Talk about contradiction.

Moderna Testing Vaccine On Infants Nationwide Despite ‘Negligible’ Risk (JTN)

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is being tested on infants across the country, even as medical experts question the wisdom of moving so fast on novel vaccine development in a population with such low risk from COVID. Seventy-nine locations in 31 states are listed as participating in the so-called KidCOVE study, which started with children ages 6 to “less than 12,” followed by ages 2 to less than 6, and finally 6 months to less than 2 years. The infant trials have received sporadic media attention. CBS Miami and WCNC Charlotte ran features on local infant participants a month ago, followed by features last week for Colorado’s KDVR and Oklahoma’s Fox 23. New attention came Monday when the University of Wisconsin medical school announced that “dozens” of children under age 6 were participating in its trial at American Family Children’s Hospital.

The ages 5-11 trial in Madison was full just days after enrollment opened in August, the med school said. About 4 in 5 participants in its Moderna trials are from “underserved populations meaning they might face barriers based on race, ethnicity, income, geography and health outcomes.” “Our very youngest children need to get the vaccine and we need to make sure they are safe,” said Dr. Bill Hartman, co-principal investigator of its KidCOVE trial. The announcement came less than a week after the CDC approved the Pfizer vaccine for children ages 5-11, and two weeks after FDA approval. More than 13,000 children will receive “up to 3 dose levels” of the vaccine or a placebo, according to Moderna’s KidCOVE summary. Excluded from eligibility: children with a “known history” of COVID infection or “close contact” with an infected person within two weeks of the trial, as well as those who have received monoclonal antibodies in the past six months.

Asked about the ethical implications of testing a vaccine on a population at such low risk, especially relative to their risk from seasonal influenza, Hartman wrote in an email that “many kids” have developed COVID due to the Delta variant. “This kept them out of daycare, out of school, and/or they went on to infect the people around them, including immunocompromised relatives,” he said, claiming 30,000 children were hospitalized in August. He compared child COVID deaths to date — nearly 600 — with the flu season directly before COVID, which killed 188. COVID is arguably in its third season, having circulated in the U.S. as early as December 2019. “Babies under age 1 might be at higher risk of severe illness with COVID-19 than older children, likely due to their immature immune systems and smaller airways, which make them more likely to develop breathing issues with respiratory virus infections,” Hartman wrote. He didn’t respond to a subsequent query about the documented difficulty of young children transmitting COVID; why he compared multiple seasons of COVID to one flu season; or a request for the underlying health of children who died from the flu versus COVID.

Harvard Medical School epidemiologist Martin Kulldorff, a pioneer in vaccine safety and vocal critic of White House COVID advisor Anthony Fauci, reviewed Hartman’s responses at the request of Just the News. It’s true that children are “about as likely to be infected as adults,” including from Delta, but there’s “more than a thousand-fold difference in mortality risk between the old and the young,” he wrote in an email. The risk is “minuscule” even for children under one. It’s wrong to blame the infection for keeping them out of school, “since most children are either asymptomatic or only mildly symptomatic,” he said. “What kept them out of school were the misguided pandemic restrictions.” They are also “not major spreaders of COVID,” and vaccination is “not a burden that we should put on children” when older, high-risk people can be protected through vaccination, Kulldorff said.

“We generally have about 2,500 Navy SEALs” [..] Hundreds are leaving because of nonsense.”

Navy SEALs Sue Biden Administration Over Covid Mandate (JTN)

A group of Navy SEALs filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration over its vaccine mandate, the latest to join the legal fight over what critics are calling unconstitutional government overreach. Dozens of SEALs, along with other Navy service members, joined in the lawsuit after the Department of Defense refused to grant them COVID-19 vaccination exemptions. With President Joe Biden’s approval, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced in August that all U.S. service members must be vaccinated. “The fact that the government has not granted a single religious exemption from the vaccine mandate shows that the Biden administration does not care about religious freedom,” said Mike Berry, general counsel for First Liberty Institute, the legal group representing the plaintiffs.

“Instead, this appears to be an attempted ideological purge. After all these elite warriors have done to defend our freedoms, the Navy is now threatening their careers, families, and finances.” “It’s appalling and it has to stop before any more harm is done to our national security,” he added. According to Liberty Counsel, the service members who requested religious exemptions to the vaccine were told they may face “court-martial or involuntary separation.” “Each of their religious exemption denials appear to be identical, suggesting the Navy is not taking their requests seriously,” the group said. “The Navy also warned some of the plaintiffs that if they sought a religious exemption, the Navy would confiscate their Special Warfare devices – such as the famous SEAL ‘Trident’ – that they proudly wear on their uniforms.

The Vaccine Mandate substantially burdens the SEALs’ free exercise of religion, and the Department of Defense has failed to prove it has a compelling government interest, or that there are no less restrictive ways to further its effort to mitigate the Covid-19 virus.” The latest lawsuit comes after a federal court temporarily halted Biden’s mandate that private sector companies with more than 99 employees ensure that their workers are vaccinated or receive weekly testing. More than 20 states have joined a series of lawsuits challenging the private sector vaccine mandate. A separate vaccination mandate for federal employees is also facing pushback.

Many SEALs have reportedly left in anticipation that they would be forced out. “We generally have about 2,500 Navy SEALs,” Robert O’Neill, a former Navy SEAL who claims to have killed Osama Bin Laden in Operation Neptune Spear, said after the mandate was announced. “It takes time to get to certain levels. Hundreds are leaving because of nonsense.”

Russia’s health minister.

Anti-Vaxxer Doctors Could Be Held Criminally Liable – Health Minister (RT)

Doctors who oppose vaccination against Covid-19 could be found criminally liable because they pose a serious threat if they catch the virus, Russia’s health minister revealed to a parliamentary committee on Wednesday. Mikhail Murahsko’s comments came on the same day as Russia’s Covid-19 HQ revealed that 1,239 people died of the disease in the last 24 hours, a new record. “In criminal legislation, there are articles that could be applied to people who pose a threat,” Murashko explained. “You don’t have to be a prophet to see what happens when anti-vaxxer medical workers get sick.” According to the health minister, medical professionals should be “more advanced” than the average person and know better than refusing inoculation.


Murashko also suggested that the country should take a stricter stance on vaccination as a whole, citing Singapore’s decision to refuse medical care to unvaccinated citizens as a possible inspiration for policy. The health minister’s increasingly tough view on Covid-19 comes as the delta variant continues to rip through Russia, regularly breaking records for both infections and deaths. Much of the blame for the spread of the virus has been placed on the low level of vaccination, which, according to Murashko, currently sits at 53% of the adult population. On Wednesday, Russian Senator Andrey Klishas suggested that parliament could vote in favor of a vaccination mandate. On Tuesday, lawmakers in Russia’s second city, St. Petersburg, signed a decree requiring all over-60s and people with chronic conditions to receive their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine within the next month.

    So they kept our eyes off the real stories all over again: nothing reported on Syria, Libya, Yemen. Nearly nothing on Kurdistan.

    Speaking of things we’re not looking at: “China Gets Half A Million Barrels Of Iranian Oil Every Day, Violating US Sanctions As Biden Looks The Other Way” Because Biden works for China. They can do whatever they want. We Americans however, cannot.

    Oh and plastics. And pollution. And carbon. And organ harvesting. And concentration camps. Kid tested, Greta Approved!

    The Veritas raid is another. They had a diary that appeared to indicate “‘Ol Joe knows he’s doing alright/ Hear him sneak in just around midnight to find out why young girls taste so good.” But they couldn’t verify his daughter’s diary, her lawyer would not respond to receive it back, and they let it drop (Although leaked somewhere else).

    Now, the FBI raids Veritas for possession of the diary. Clear invasion of 1st Amendment, the Free Press, fishing expedition. Like other cases, Stone, all they had to do was ask. Here’s the thing: IF the FBI raids Veritas, THEY ARE ESTABLISHING THE DIARY IS REAL. Because if it was fake, there would be no case, no interest, no jurisdiction. So the FBI just told D.C. lawyers – not us public yet – it’s all true. And I don’t think that’s an accident. I don’t think the FBI suddenly went “oopsie” after NOT pursuing, for the exact same reason/quandry, for the last year or two. No, they are moving forward. If you want to know what kind of President we have. And overall Federal government.

    Now I’m totally willing to hold a trial to establish guilt or innocence with all witnesses and evidence anyone wants to bring. If he and they are all innocent: so much the better. But their constant, non-stop behaviour suggests otherwise. And so does this. So White Hats at the FBI, and as process they have established for a few years, events have to be “anti-Trump” and anti-Constitution, or the government won’t do it and the media won’t report it. So fine. We’ll do the anti-law, anti-human, anti-rights act and get it in the news and the Federal Record then. Looking for more here, but probably take out ol Sneaky Joe as commanded by the White Hats with 25A and put in Pelosi. Also as commanded. The weird are gonna go pro.

    Hate to cover Rittenhouse trial but it’s really gone unbelievable, every minute clown-world. As they already failed – because they didn’t ask State witnesses what they saw before putting them on the stand? Because witnesses told the truth for once? – looks like they are trying Kyle by Twitter. …Which of course they were, they have a Civil War and social lies to murder people, with but the method is amazing. After blowing this, their own video, the FBI, their own witnesses, praying for a mistake and not getting one, Prosecution appears to be creating an intentional mistrial, so as to get a do-over. Backsies! Well, idiot sons always do, and never imagine consequences. Why would they? No idiot sons have gone to jail in my generation. This is by attacking Kyle and the Jury by claiming there is no 5th Amendment rights. “So why were you silent? Why didn’t you talk and post everything online without a lawyer, Kyle?” Um, because I’m not a moron? Whiskey Tango. But of course the opening foray is to attack and remove the Constitution, they can’t help themselves. No rules for me, but for thee. The Judge did a “Kyle’s Mom” and sputtered, “What what what what what???”

    Next, attacking their own witness. What? Then when the witness doesn’t say what they want and put it into his mouth, illegal leading, illegal tampering, the witness says “you’ve been trying to coach me and get me to say this but it didn’t happen.” So another felony there.

    Next, Prosecution steadily introducing evidence and matters prohibited by the judge. Similar to the judge not allowing to pre-establish who is the “victim”, as that is what the TRIAL is for. …To break the court and cause a mistrial. The Judge knows it and is furious. But what can he do? He can call mistrial – AND WITH PREJUDICE so the Prosecution cannot re-bring these charges that at this point is malpractice because their own witnesses say Kyle’s behavior was legal. The trial itself is illegal, and Kyle is in line for suing the City for malicious prosecution and walking away a millionaire.

    Why are they doing this? Because the real trial is on Twitter. That’s all they care about. Not this case, facts, evidence, individuals. We got a war to run! As every word is a lie, Twitter writes “I’ve been following this case word-by-word and the judge is crooked. He should be prosecuted at least for moving a gun across state lines” which the own court records say didn’t happen. The judge is surprisingly fair, and as the miracle of the year, someone, more than one person told the truth. In public. No wonder they’re shocked.

    But all the Derp State/Prosecutors need is a lot of national murder. So if you lose the trial, no problem! We just do it in a way that we can tell people who are hateful, lazy, and illiterate that Trump’s own judge just let him go! And we would have got him too if not for those nosy kids! Take the the streets and burn some black people and businesses in protest! Kill Rittenhouse where he stands, ye mob!

    And Kyle will need lifelong security, someone out on the street will murder him with stochastic terrorism due to Prosecution, State, lies. No one uses the Court for its purpose, that is, to establish the truth of that day, and instead have a non-court.

    So the Prosecution is essentially attempting to kill him BECAUSE their witnesses say he’s innocent, but more importantly trying to kill all the rest of us too.

    So the Judge can call a mistrial with no backsies, but that will cause problems too as we as a nation cannot come to a legal and social consensus on what happened. Even though the State’s own witnesses and the “Victims” did: self-defense. The goal is for you to never hear that, nor any other true fact. Ever. Go murder your neighbor in the streets. Big Brother Approves.

    There are some other possibilities, but the State can and probably will create life-long mistrials, try him over and over and over until his old age, and some day – like EU voting – the jury finally votes “right”. Then we stop! And if YOU want more trials, it’s false and unfair. When WE want them, it’s good and right!

    Speaking of no true facts, Evergrande defaults, but no facts out there. No! They sold jets and paid, right? Everything’s Jake, shee? You ain’t gonna rat, shee?

    “Biden’s ‘Unhinged Socialist’ Banking Nominee Wants Oil, Coal, & Gas Industries To ‘Go Bankrupt’”

    …And kill everyone worldwide. Gosh! Seems like all news points, all State actions head in only one direction. Funny old world. But I am a coincidence theorist and that is not suspicious at all.

    Go burn down a black neighborhood to stop the spread! You’ll be better than a hero! You’ll be Antifa.

    “Germany Recommends Only Biontech/Pfizer Vaccine For Under-30s (R.) “

    So Pfizer is more dangerous and more sterilizing? Enough that they are willing to admit the true, real effects of Moderna to herd people into a drug twice as bad? Just asking. Everyone knows government is merely a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pfizer.

    Eat that aborted baby tissue, Christians: Eat It! These guys are mentally ill and their minions are too.

    Anti-Vaxxer Doctors Could Be Held Criminally Liable – Health Minister (RT)”

    As others have said: if the reality is as our TAE consensus suggests, why do nations like Russia ALSO behave this way? That tells me something larger is out there. mRNA could tag you for a following targeted bioweapon. But that’s the opposite. Is it that the government really want you to get it despite apparent overwhelming harm because it will still be safer than being Mr. Natural for a FUTURE corona attack? What is this? Some of these facts still make no sense.

    Just saying I’m watching it. At the moment the paradigm is the TAE one because of the weight of evidence, but I feel something else out there.

    “Big Bird selling vaccines to toddlers is a deep deep low.”

    Yes, but someone pointed out that it’s also illegal. …I mean, it’s Pfizer, they wouldn’t DO it if it weren’t illegal. Law is like this: As an EUA, this is unapproved. Pfizer is advertising an unapproved drug to children. That’s illegal. They need approval, and for this purpose, and for this age group.

    But Pfizer’s enforcement arm, the U.S. government and Justice Department, will not be arresting Pfizer execs anytime soon. That’s why we merged corporation and state to begin with!

    Covid-Resistant People? In other words, normal healthy people. The most dangerous aspect of the past two years of BS is the inversion of the presumption of health in our fellow man. And this satanic inversion threatens to collapse human civilization.

    Since these sickos love word games, here’s another one:

    Memoli said that he supports COVID-19 vaccination in high-risk groups including obese people and the elderly. However, widespread vaccinations for people who have a low risk of death or severe illness from COVID-19 could hamper the U.S. population’s ability to develop more robust protection against the virus via previous infections, he said.

    Why are the alcoholics, drug addicts, the poor, and the street people still with us and did not all die from covid?

    “if the reality is as our TAE consensus suggests, why do nations like Russia ALSO behave this way?”

    Abusing myself by scrolling down google’s increasingly juvenile, censored, and commercial-driven search listings for “putin ivermectin”, I found this:

    Russian President Putin expected to visit India, dated today. From the article:

    “Putin is avoiding foreign travel due to the threat of the coronavirus. During his one-day visit, Putin and PM Modi will meet and many important defense agreements are likely to be signed. During Putin’s visit to India, many agreements, can be signed.”

    If anything might bump Vlad off the covidiotic vakzi-nation train wreck, his response to covid might be it. The following was his position as of Oct. 20 2021:

    …”Our task today is to protect life and health of our citizens and minimize the consequences of the dangerous infection,” Putin said in a video call with officials Wednesday, The Associated Press reported.

    “To achieve that, it’s necessary to first of all slow the pace of contagion and mobilize additional reserves of the health care system, which is currently working under a high strain,” he added.

    Putin further expressed frustrations with the course the pandemic is taking, after the vaccine has long been available to all seeking it: “I can’t understand what’s going on,” [il neretto è mio] he said. “We have a reliable and efficient vaccine. The vaccine really reduces the risks of illness, grave complications and death.”

    “There are only two ways to get over this period — to get sick or to receive a vaccine,” Putin said. “It’s better to get the vaccine, why wait for the illness and its grave consequences? Please be responsible and take the necessary measures to protect yourself, your health and your close ones.”.»

    The images are from the brilliantly funny Keyboard Kommandos blog active around 2004-2008. Very liberally biased, funny as clown feet, and, like so many intellectual liberal strongholds, eerily prescient in a backwards way: the things they sarcastically accused the right of believing about the left have proven truer than true.

    ***

    Pondering how/why Putin is so apparently clueless or evil regarding covid vakzination, the fever dreams of my swamp of horrors proffers this conspiracy hypothesis: if a man as shrewd, smart, and bold as Putin is following the covidiotic narrative, either he is surrounded by medical science yes-men who are either as dumb as the rest of the world’s med-sci yes-men, or someone got to him and made him an offer he can’t refuse.

    If the latter, I can’t imagine it being anyone but China or Israel. There strong ties between Israel and Russia, and Israel allegedly has serious espionage chops (altho I suspect that reputation rests more on past glories than current capabilities).

    My money, in this scenario, is on China. China and Russia have been doing joint military exercises for several years, iirc, giving Chinese milintel types opportunities to bend sinister Russian milintelskis with powerful access to key Russian (god, I miss saying ‘Soviet’: it always sounded so cool; William Gibson’s first novel leaned heavily on the allure of dense Soviet evil) military powerws including cybernetic systems. One could probably twist Putin if one could demonstrate that one could trigger an unwanted nuclear exchange if Putin were not to comply.

    This fits in with the notion of China/USA conspiracy against Russia using a bioweapon (covid) as driving force. How well that notion fits the data, I have no opinion at this point. But since Russia is the one nation that broke free from the IMF/Euromerican banking structure that drives most global shennanigans, it’s not entirely nuts.

    I retreat now beneath the much of my swamp of horrors like a good lagoon creature.

    What is going on? How many skins hath this onion? Why do they call it “the fog of war”?

    Above my pay grade, and yours, too, but there are rumors that there will be more and more waves of pandemic contagion. Novel vaccine products are potentially an important tool in this global power struggle and class-war as Wile-E-Coyote plunges into the deep ravine.

    Putin seems to be paying attention, providing options, rather than lockdowns and mandates, and he is bound to have different information flows than TAE readers. I did not say “better”, but in accord with his position in the world. He also has to keep a poker face, and avoid actions that he might sorely regret. He seems to be allowing Russians to have and choose options.

    Thanks for the link, it’s food for thought however far-fetched it sounds. What strikes me as believable about it is all the young global leaders who have been embracing the gen-therapy so enthusiastically, and they’re all known for being power hungry but missing any real ideas of their own. They’re perfectly placed for following orders to lead their respective countries over the cliff and they all seem to be hell-bent on wrecking their societies, social cohesion and economies as a part of that process without ever once stopping to think.

    What doesn’t make any kind of sense is, like Dr D said, Russia falling for the same scam. Maybe Putin will wise up following his trip to India. If he does change tack then that would really mess up “the plan.” At that point, perhaps Billy Goats will save the day by wheeling out his beloved smallpox 2.0.

    “In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.”

    The nice thing about folks like FLCCC is that they’re willing to admit when they made a mistake. a 28% mortality rate means a 72% survival rate. Not as good as a 94% survival<>6% mortality rate, but 72% of surviving patients agree: that being alive provides more options than being dead.

    We wuz right.

    In the end, covid is just another shitshow distraction from the core issues: we’re consuming our planetary survival base while running out of the extractable resources which allow us to be so foolishly destructive in the first place.

    One thing that has been very useful about Covid, however, in the abstract sense is that it has served as an acid-test to show “who’s who” with regard to whether or not one has truly let go of the Religion of Everlasting Progress. In fairness, that’s not an easy thing to do given how everything we’re exposed to drums it further into our heads, and probably a lot of us here including myself haven’t left it behind 100%.

    Make no mistake, like France’s collaborators everyone will have an excuse which justifies their inhumanity.

    Our most vicious and vocal fellow-citizens will blame the media for othering the unvaccinated, the media will blame the government for lying to them about the Covid threat, the government will blame the scientists for flawed data and maintain they only wanted to be our shield, the scientists will find a scapegoat and claim they were misled.

    Re Putin
    He is a smart man, but leaders of large countries usually get most of their information (briefs) from others that they trust, rather than doing a great deal of personal research. He is busy and insulated. He isn’t reading TAE or it’s equivalent — and neither are those gathering information for him. Possibly his information gatherers have become corrupt and he hasn’t realized.

    Latest dog’s dinner of COVID is up https://www.johndayblog.com/2021/11/medicolegal-pandemic-update.html

    The current COVID mutation sweeping Europe evades (capitalizes upon?) vaccine-induced antibodies. It does not appear as virulent in the unvaccinated, but spreads very well in vaccinated European populations, becoming dominant in multiple regions.
    …Of note, this B.1.1.7 sub-lineage is the predominant B.1.1.7 variant in several European countries, such as Czech Republic, Austria and Slovakia. The earliest samples belonging to this sub-lineage were detected in November 2020 in a few countries in the European continent, but not in the UK. We have also detected its further evolution with extra spike mutations D138Y and A701V, which are signature mutations shared with the Beta and Gamma variants, respectively. Antibody neutralization assay of virus variant isolations has revealed that the variant with extra spike mutations is 3.2-fold less sensitive to vaccine-elicited antibodies as compared to other B.1.1.7 variants tested, indicating potential for immune evasion, but it also exhibited reduced replication fitness. The wide spread of this B.1.1.7 sub-lineage was related to the pandemic waves in early 2021 in various European countries.
    https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.11.01.21265749v1.full

    ​More on that in lay terminology:
    ​ With a 62.7% vaccination rate, Austria not only has a higher rate than the U.S., but most of the population has been vaccinated relatively recently, which should give those people better protection. Yet the country is experiencing its most prolific outbreak ever, as we are seeing across the globe, with a near-perfect inverse relationship between vaccination rates and COVID case rates. Now, Austria and other European countries are staring down the barrel of a completely new mutation, which German researchers believe might be completely immune to the vaccine-mediated antibodies.
    According to Our World in Data, the Central European countries and the Baltic states currently have the highest case rates per capita in the world.

    A group of 16 Swedish doctors and researchers have signed a petition demanding a stop in vaccination with Pfizer in Sweden due to suspected fraud.
    ​ ​Earlier in November, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) revealed that a subcontractor to Pfizer was likely to conduct extensive research fraud during the pivotal phase III study of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine in the autumn of 2020.
    ​ ​According to a former Pfizer subcontractor regional director in Texas, the company falsified data, unblinded patients, hired inadequately trained vaccinators and was slow to follow up on side effects reported in the Phase III study of the Pfizer vaccine.
    ​ ​A whistleblower suggested that the company falsified data, unblinded patients, hired inadequately trained vaccinators and was slow to follow up on side effects reported in the Phase III study. The staff who performed quality checks were reportedly overwhelmed by the amount of problems they discovered. The BMJ concluded that the trial raised questions about data integrity and regulatory oversight.

    ​”Name your poison”
    ​ ​In the wake of a weak earnings report that sent Moderna shares cratering last week, French health authorities have just released a new advisory recommending that people under 30 don’t get the Moderna vaccine, recommending that they choose the Pfizer-BioNTech jab instead.

    Germany Latest EU Government To Warn Young Adults, Pregnant Women Not To Get Moderna Jab
    European health regulators are expressing another wave of skepticism about mRNA vaccines and whether the health benefit for young, healthy adults outweighs the potentiality for damage from rare but harmful side effects. Yesterday, it was France’s medicines regulator advising men under 30 to avoid the Moderna jab.
    On Wednesday, Germany’s advisory committee, also known as STIKO, issued a similar regulation targeted at Moderna. The committee said Germans under the age of 30 should stick to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine as studies suggest that it causes fewer cases of heart inflammation in younger patients, something that has been backed up by multiple studies.

    ​”We just have to give the kids the vaccine to see how it works…”
    ​ In Pfizer’s FDA briefing document prepared for the Oct. 25 meeting was an admission that even according to the company’s own unverified and misleading math, there is a scenario where there would be more hospitalizations among children for myocarditis — just one side effect — than from COVID. “Under Scenario 3 (lowest incidence), the model predicts more excess hospitalizations due to vaccine-related myocarditis/pericarditis compared to prevented hospitalizations due to COVID-19 in males and in both sexes combined,” states Pfizer in page 33 of the document.

    Why They Didn’t Stop The Trials
    ​ ​”Last week I caught up with a friend who worked on some of the first Moderna vaccine human trials in the US. He revealed to me that it is indeed as bad as we thought it was. He had worked at a research center 6 years testing various drugs and was in charge of describing and filing reports for serious adverse reactions (SAEs). SAE’s include anything from getting hit by a bus to having an anaphylactic reaction to the drug at the center (basically any serious health event has to be recorded and investigated for any link to the clinical trial for the duration of the trial.) For a normal week, he’d have 1 or 2 SAEs to file and report. When they started the Moderna trial, within a week he was having to come in early and stay late to get through stacks of SAEs.
    ​ ​The normal acceptable threshold for SAEs is 5%. Once you cross that threshold, and more than 5% of your patients are reporting SAEs, you have to stop the trial and investigate for cause. Well, they had a rate of at least 16% after a few weeks. So, confused as to why the trial had not been flagged and halted, they looked into their SAE database and found that the majority of the ones they had reported to the agency responsible (I think FDA) were missing.
    ​ ​They called said agency and were told that there were a high volume of SAEs being reported from multiple centers, so they were going through and removing the “irrelevant ones.” They claimed that the state of the pandemic warranted an unconventional approach to research. Obviously this is insane, even to the trusting individuals my friend worked with so the head of his clinic called a conference of the other 20 or so sites in that region and they all were having the same experience. In other words, this wasn’t a fluke.
    ​ ​Things eventually got so bad that my friends’ boss told the company he was contracted with that he was going to discontinue the trial because people were having so many SAEs including seizures, clots, myocarditis, death, etc. The contracting company told him that he was obliged to finish the trial, from what I gather because the official number of SAEs was below the 5% threshold. Friend’s boss said “go take a hike, I quit.” Walked away from his head job at the research center where he made millions.”

    ​”Cherry-picking” data. They had other data. They did not include it.​
    In Israel, they studied the “effectiveness”​ of a third Pfizer vaccine “booster” by looking only at the number of cases between 1-3 weeks following that booster, and not looking at any adverse events from the booster. Within that very narrow scope the people who got the booster did better than people who completed the Pfizer 2-shot series more than 5 months previously. Unvaccinated Israelis with or without natural immunity were not included.
    ​ ​Effectiveness of a third dose of the BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 vaccine for preventing severe outcomes in Israel: an observational study
    ​ “Third, due to the relative scarcity of events in individuals younger than 40 years, we could not evaluate vaccine effectiveness in this age group. Fourth, this vaccine effectiveness study did not explore potential adverse clinical events and excess health-care utilisation associated with the administration of a third dose. Finally, we excluded populations (health-care workers, those living in long-term care facilities, and those medically confined to their homes) that are likely to be targeted early to receive the booster dose.”

    ​This explains a lot of morbidity and mortality. Keep your vitamin-D level up to help your immune system be intelligent, and get early antiviral treatment with things like ivermectin, zinc, doxycycline, hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, fluvoxamine, monoclonal antibodies, baby-aspirin, vitamin-C, quercetin, NAC,…

    Michigan school closes for a day because so many teachers got Covid booster jabs over the weekend are suffering adverse reactions.

    Also, how many states are currently having problems staffing enough school teachers? I know teacher salaries in AZ are low, so I thought it was just here…guess not.

    “Possibly his information gatherers have become corrupt and he hasn’t realized.”

    That has been my main perspective on this too, but if so, it means that he’s toast unless he changes course soon..

    That said, it’s been almost two years. I can’t imagine Putin not paying attention to the voices of dissidents, including medical dissidents. In the process of countering them as “misinformation”, he would be bound to come across data that disturbed him about the Oaficial Narrative, I want to think.

    But he’s old and tired, and keeping oneself from being buried in yes-men is very difficult for someone in Putin’s position for so long.

    But that leads to this concept: he WILL find out the essential truths about covidiocy. If he isn’t being coerced by offers he can’t refuse, then he is liable to start ripping heads off. If he stays the course, he is toast one way or another, and Russia’s brief recuperative Golden Era will likely end.
