“Isn’t it amazing that HCQ, IVM, and Pfizer’s PAXLOVID ($72per pill) all inhibit the same SARS 3CLpro enzyme to inhibit replication? Weird that two are “snake oil” and the expensive one will get EUA.”

 

 

This sort of analysis is entirely meaningless if you don’t also look at vaccine effects. As is, pure speculation.

Is Europe Getting Crushed By Variant Completely Immune To Covid Shots? (Blaze)

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.

Most of them have higher case rates per million people than the U.S. ever had, but nearly all of them have recently been vaccinated. Slovenia now has over 1,300 cases per million, more than six times the rate in the U.S. Its vaccination rate is comparable to ours, except that most people were more recently vaccinated, which, if anything, should give them more immunity. Other Central and Eastern European states getting hammered have lower vaccination rates, but the Baltic states have higher rates. Then, of course, there is Ireland, with the highest vaccination rate in the EU, yet cases are surging, particularly in the parts of the country that have near 100% vaccination among adults. We already know from the U.K. data, the most granular and continuous of all world data, that the vaccine has negative efficacy against cases and increasingly low efficacy against critical illness, as over 82% of all deaths are among the vaccinated, according to the most recent weekly report from the U.K. Health Security Agency data.

Now, according to a new study, Europe is likely experiencing a wave of a new variant that is completely immune to all the shots, a wave that will make anyone in the U.S. who has not experienced prior infection and does not have a plan for early treatment susceptible to serious illness. Trial Site News is reporting on a study from German and Czech researchers who conducted genomic analysis from samples in the border region between Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic. They found that the predominant strain is no longer Delta. It is, in fact, a sublineage of the U.K.’s Alpha SARS-CoV-2 variant, known as B.1.1.7, and is likely responsible for the rapid surge throughout Europe. They believe it is the predominant strain in the Czech Republic, Austria, and Slovakia and that this mutant 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.”

VAERS: 100s Of Serious Adverse Events The CDC And FDA Kept Hidden (Kirsch)

In a brand new VAERS data analysis performed by our friend Albert Benavides (aka WelcomeTheEagle88), we found hundreds of serious adverse events that were completely missed by the CDC that should have been mentioned in the informed consent document that are given to patients. And we found over 200 symptoms that occur at a higher relative rate than myocarditis (relative to all previous vaccines over the last 5 years). All together, there were over 4,000 VAERS adverse event codes that were elevated by these vaccines by a factor of 10 or more over baseline that the CDC should have warned people about.

As of November 1, 2021, there have been more adverse events reported for the COVID vaccines than for all 70+ vaccines combined since they started tracking adverse events 30 years ago. That’s a stunning statistic, nobody can deny it, but nobody in the mainstream medical community (or mainstream media) seems to care much. It’s not even worth noting in passing. Wow. Here’s what the evidence shows:

• The COVID vaccines are the most dangerous vaccines in human history. They are 800 times more deadly than the smallpox vaccine which was the previous record holder. The vaccines have killed over 150,000 Americans and permanently disabled even more. They don’t make sense for anyone of any age. The younger you are, the worse it gets. For kids, it is estimated that we kill 117 kids for every COVID death we prevent. •The Pfizer 6 month trial showed the drug can save 1 life for every 22,000 people vaccinated. It also appeared from the trial that the drug killed more people than it saved (there were 20 deaths in the treatment group vs. 14 in placebo after unblinding). So we are “saving” fewer than 10,000 lives at the expense of over 150,000 deaths. In short, we kill 15 people to save 1. That’s incredibly stupid. But nobody in the Biden administration wants to meet with our team. They basically don’t want to hear the truth. Instead, they focus on deplatforming and censoring us which are techniques that are effective when the data doesn’t work out for you.

• Both the FDA and CDC have proven inept in spotting safety signals. They can’t even compute the VAERS URF which is a number that is required for any serious risk-benefit analysis. So the FDA and CDC outside committee members are all flying blind in approving the vaccines. Even after this deficiency is pointed out in the public comments by yours truly (and direct emails to the committee members), it makes no difference. We are ignored. The CDC safety monitoring is so bad that they even admitted at the last ACIP meeting that it was the DoD that spotted the myocarditis signal. So the FDA and CDC have basically been batting .000 in terms of spotting safety signals that have been sitting in plain sight the entire time.

• They can’t admit that they missed the signals now because that would be an admission they missed them before. So they will try to discredit this article with ad hominem attacks (this is a technique used to win an argument when you cannot win on the evidence). • The serious events we highlight below are all consistent with the mechanism of action that Robert Malone and I first described in the Darkhorse podcast. Namely, that the spike protein that is produced in response to the delivery of the mRNA is cytotoxic and results in blood clots, inflammation and scarring throughout your body which then creates a wider range of severe adverse events than any vaccine in human history.

• The medical community is trained by the CDC to believe the vaccines are safe, so they interpret all the adverse events as not vaccine related. But if it wasn’t the vaccine that caused all these events, what was it? What’s worse is they tell their patients, “this is all in your head” or that “your baby died because you had a genetic defect.” • In general, patients believe their doctors and never figure out where to get a cytokine panel to discover that they are vaccine injured (go to www.covidlonghaulers.com to get the cytokine panel and IncellDx to get the spike protein assay). So people never learn how to rid their body of the spike protein either (see my article on vaccine treatment for the drugs they use to do this) which is the first step in the road to recovery.

EU Lists Rare Spinal Condition As Side-effect Of J&J Covid-19 Shot (R.)

Europe’s drug regulator on Thursday recommended adding a rare type of spinal inflammation called transverse myelitis as a side-effect of Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose COVID-19 vaccine. Reports of this serious neurological illness was also at the heart of trial halts in the early stages of development for both AstraZeneca and J&J’s shots, which are based on similar technology. Giving updates on the safety of all coronavirus shots, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said it was assessing reports of a rare blood condition known as capillary leak syndrome (CLS) following inoculation with Moderna’s MRNA.O vaccine.


The EMA said it had recorded six cases of CLS and was assessing all data, but it was not yet clear if there was a causal association between the reports and the vaccine. In CLS, fluids leak from the smallest blood vessels causing swelling and a drop in blood pressure. The condition has also been studied with vaccines from AstraZeneca and J&J. The EMA said there was currently not enough evidence of a possible link between rare cases of multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS) and mRNA-based vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The regulator is reviewing if approved coronavirus vaccines could cause MIS. The syndrome is a serious but rare condition in which different body parts become inflamed, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes, or gastrointestinal organs.

New Vax Science Shows Mandates Unwise (McCaughey)

New scientific findings in the prestigious Lancet Infectious Diseases journal blow a hole in the argument that workers need to get vaccinated to protect those around them. The findings prove the foolishness of forcing police and other public employees to get jabbed or lose their pay. And President Joe Biden should retract his order to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to compel large employers to mandate vaccines. The journal reported Thursday that COVID-19 vaccines have “minimal” impact on preventing transmission of the delta strain. Delta is the COVID strain currently causing over 99% of U.S. cases. Vaccines protect the people getting the shots from serious illness, but they don’t stop the delta variant from spreading to others.

Don’t get me wrong. Americans should choose to get vaccinated. The key word is “choose.” Though shots are no guarantee against getting infected and spreading it to others, they provide significant protection (90% or more) against hospitalization and death. I’m triple jabbed. Choosing not to get vaccinated is choosing to risk your own life. The health risk to others is minimal. Most vaccines — against polio, smallpox, measles and other diseases — prevent infection and spread. But not COVID-19 vaccines. Now that the battle is against the delta variant, they’ve become disease-tamers rather than infection preventers. Governors and mayors from Maine to Los Angeles are demanding that public employees, and even nurses and doctors, hailed just months ago as heroes, get vaxxed or go without a job.

Just as politicians don’t read the bills before voting on them, they don’t keep up with science but still want to tell the rest of us what to do. The groundbreaking findings in Lancet show that fully vaccinated people who came down with COVID infected others in their household at the same rate (about 25%) as unvaccinated people did (about 23%). The vaccinated had just as much viral load in their upper respiratory tract, making them just as contagious.

Austria Province To Place Millions Of Unvaxxed In Covid Lockdown (G.)

Austria is set to place millions of people not fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in lockdown in a matter of days as infections soar to record highs and intensive care units face an increasing strain. The country’s worst-affected province of Upper Austria plans to introduce a lockdown for the unvaccinated from Monday next week following recommendations from medical experts. Europe is once again “at the epicentre” of the pandemic with Covid cases at or surpassing record levels due to uneven vaccine coverage and a relaxation of preventive measures, the World Health Organization said last week, adding that 500,000 more deaths are forecast in the region by February. Coronavirus deaths rose by 10% across the continent over the past week, making it the only world region where both Covid-19 cases and deaths are steadily increasing, according to a WHO report.


Austrian regional governor Thomas Stelzer described the situation as “dramatic” and said a lockdown would be introduced “provided there is a legal green light from the federal government or the federal government creates the legal basis”, the Austria Press Agency reports. The province has the lowest vaccination rate and the highest infection rate of Austria’s nine provinces, according to government data. Austria has the lowest vaccination rate of any western European country apart from Liechtenstein, according to data from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. Those who are not vaccinated will have restrictions placed on their daily movements, including bans from restaurants, hotels, hairdressing salons and large public events.

Yeah, we really need Bolsonaro as the voice of reason. Thanks, guys.

Bolsonaro Confronts WHO Chief: ‘People Are Dying After the Second Dose’

A new clip has emerged of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro confronting WHO head Tedros Adhanom about COVID-19 restrictions and asking why people are still dying of COVID after the second dose of the vaccine. The discussion took place during the recent G20 summit of global leaders in Rome. Challenging Adhanom on vaccine passports, Bolsonaro asserted that, “All over the world, there are people who need to work to feed themselves.” He added that lockdown measures have destabilized the global economy, warning that if it continues, “the economy will collapse.” Adhanom said he didn’t want more lockdowns and agreed that the vaccine passport scheme was “discrimination,” but only while vaccine rates in some countries were still low.

“In Brazil, many who get the second dose are getting COVID,” said Bolsonaro, to which the WHO head responded by saying the vaccine doesn’t stop the spread of COVID but reduces the risk of serious illness and death. “In Brazil, many who got the second dose are dying,” Bolsonaro clarified, to which Adhanom responded by saying underlying diseases were to blame. Bolsonaro then decried his inability to stop mandatory vaccinations for children, to which Adhanom responded by saying the WHO doesn’t support giving the vaccine to children. The Brazilian President then lamented how whenever he asks questions about the vaccine, he is accused of putting out “fake news.” “Our hands are tied, the lives of our children are at stake,” said Bolsonaro. When he asked Adhanom about the origin of COVID-19, Adhanom laughed and said, “We are still studying it.”

Bolsonaro has long been skeptical of the vaccine and COVID-19 lockdown measures. After arriving for the UN General Assembly in September, he was forced to eat pizza on the sidewalk because he is not vaccinated and therefore banned from indoor dining in New York. Bolsonaro has repeatedly championed the drug hydroxychloroquine, asserting that, “If hydroxychloroquine hadn’t been politicized, a lot more lives could have been saved.” The Brazilian President caught coronavirus himself in July 2020, but said he was able to recover quickly thanks to his past as an “athlete” in the army. He also pointed to hydroxychloroquine as having aided his swift recovery.

Asean Reported Over 30,000 New Covid-19 Cases On Wednesday (NT)

The number of Covid-19 cases crossed 13.48 million across Southeast Asia, with 30,200 new cases reported on Wednesday (November 10), higher than Tuesday’s tally at 27,613. New deaths are at 370, increasing from Tuesday’s number of 310. Total Covid-19 deaths in Asean are now at 282,675. Malaysia’s Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department reported that about 1.8 per cent of civil servants, or about 29,000 people from the total 1.6 million people, have yet to be vaccinated against Covid-19 despite a mandate issued by the Public Service Department. However, as of November 10, ten days after the mandate was issued, no disciplinary actions have been taken.


Meanwhile, Singapore’s Animal and Veterinary Service (AVS) said on Wednesday that the African lion at the Singapore Zoo which showed signs of sickness on Monday has tested positive for Covid-19. It is the fifth lion in Singapore to be infected with the coronavirus, after four Asiatic lions at the Night Safari tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday. A Mandai Wildlife Group spokesman said in a statement on Wednesday that all its lions that have been unwell are “bright, alert and active for now”.

Long Covid Doesn’t Exist, Volume One Zillion (Berenson)

The Journal of the American Medical Association has another stunning paper out, this one on post-Covid symptoms in almost 27,000 French adults. Researchers asked people to report whether they had had Covid and whether they had any of 18 lasting symptoms like insomnia, fatigue, or cough. They found that self-reported Covid was very strongly associated with nearly every symptom. But the scientists then went a step further. They also had Sars-Cov-2 antibody test results for the people they had surveyed, so they didn’t have to depend on self-reported Covid. They knew who really had had Covid and who had not. They then compared self-reported symptoms in people with antibodies – that is, people who had actually been infected and recovered from Covid – to the general population.

And they found no difference in almost any symptom. Covid was not a risk factor for chest pain, or breathing difficulties, or trouble focusing, or stomach pain, or any of the many, many other complaints that long Covid “patients” and interest groups say are real. There was one interesting exception; people with Covid antibodies did have a much higher rate of anosmia, losing one’s sense of smell. Because anosmia is a known and lasting side effect, it serves as a useful control of sorts. The researchers also found that almost 60 percent of the people with antibodies HAD NO IDEA THEY HAD EVEN HAD COVID AT ALL. Meanwhile, while more than half the people who said they had had Covid had no antibodies. (Welcome to the plague so severe most halfway healthy adults don’t even know they’ve had it.)

The study strongly suggests that many people are using previous Covid diagnoses – either real or imagined – to help explain away common physical symptoms such as joint pain or cough. It also suggests that actually being infected Covid is far less risky than thinking you have been infected with Covid for many people. The researchers concluded by explaining that people who claim they have long Covid may need help “to identify cognitive and behavioral mechanisms that may be targeted to relieve the symptoms.” Which is a very polite way of putting the truth. This study should slow, if not stop, the rush to medicalize long Covid. It is yet more proof that the illness is a group of squishy (if painful and difficult) symptoms looking for a name – and more importantly a billing code.

Missouri Governor Seeks Benefits For Those Who Defy Federal Vaxx Mandates (JTN)

If a worker is fired for not getting a federally mandated COVID-19 vaccination, Missouri Republican Gov. Mike Parson wants to help them. “You see what Iowa just did,” Parson said Thursday in an interview with The Center Square. “I think we want to make sure civil rights or civil liberties are being exercised. If somebody has religious conviction, we want to make sure that’s upheld – whatever that takes. And if it’s for health reasons, we want to include that, too.” On Oct. 29, Iowa Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds signed into law a bill allowing the state’s workers to seek medical and religious exemptions from the vaccine mandate and guarantees unemployment benefits for those fired for refusing to get vaccinated. The Iowa legislature passed the bill during a one-day special session scheduled to approve the state’s redistricting maps.

Missouri Republican Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed three lawsuits during the last two weeks to stop federal vaccine mandates. They include halting required vaccinations for federal contractors and federally contracted employees, for private employers with 100 or more employees operating under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and for health care facilities serving Medicare and Medicaid patients. “We’ve been in contact with the Attorney General’s office and we were waiting for the OSHA guidelines to come out,” Parson said. “We wanted to see where the federal government was going to see what kind of lawsuits to file.”

The New Orleans-based Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Nov. 6 temporarily halted the OSHA order after Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and others filed a similar lawsuit in that jurisdiction. While Parson stopped short of wanting to guarantee unemployment benefits for those losing their jobs for declining vaccinations, he said his administration is planning for the possibility of federal mandates.“If those people are going to lose their jobs, which I don’t think they should… but evidently there’s a little bit of a problem as to what everybody’s view is on those civil rights issues,” Parson said. “So we want to be prepared for that if they go down that road.

How is this not criminal? Testing on babies!

Moderna To Test Covid-19 Vaccine On Infants As Young As 6 Months Old (Blaze)

Biotechnology company Moderna Therapeutics will soon begin large-scale testing of its COVID-19 vaccine on infants. The vaccine clinical trial, called KidCOVE, is being carried out at 79 locations across 13 states and will involve roughly 13,275 participants between the ages of 6 months and 11 years old in its entirety. The first phase — which has already been completed — involved children between the ages of 6 years to less than 12 years old. The study is now reportedly in its second phase, during which children between the ages of 2 years to less than 6 years old will undergo testing. The third and final stage will test the vaccine on children ages 6 months to less than 2 years old. In August, trial administrators reportedly amassed all the participants they needed for each stage.


Participants in the clinical trial are given two injections in the upper arm about 28 days apart and are then asked to return with their guardian to the study site for at least four follow-up appointments over the next 13 months, according to KidCOVE. “The primary purpose of the KidCOVE Study is to test the safety and effectiveness of the study vaccine, called mRNA-1273, that may protect children between the ages of 6 months to < 12 years from getting sick if they come into contact with SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19,” KidCOVE’s website states.

FDA Recalls Millions Of Covid Test Kits Over False Positives (RT)

The US Food and Drug Administration has issued “the most serious type of recall” for popular home testing kits that show if one is infected with coronavirus. At least 2.2 million products may have been showing false positives. Some 2,212,335 kits produced by the Australian-based biotech company Ellume and distributed in the US potentially show false positive SARS-CoV-2 test results, the public health agency said in a statement on Thursday. The FDA warned that the use of faulty kits “may cause serious adverse health consequences or death,” identifying the case as a ‘Class I recall.’ The antigen test, which detects coronavirus proteins, was authorized for emergency use by the FDA last year. It is available without a prescription for both adults and children aged two and older, and uses swab samples taken from a nose to detect if one has Covid.


Some “specific lots,” manufactured between February and August this year, are now being recalled in the US, with the company saying it has worked with the authorities to voluntarily remove the affected tests from the market. The company has offered its apologies “for any stress or difficulties [customers] may have experienced because of a false positive result.” The “higher-than-acceptable” false results, showing that a person has coronavirus when in reality they do not, have been reported to the FDA in at least 35 cases. No false negative results have been detected. However, the inaccurate diagnostic could have life-threatening consequences. A person might receive wrong or unnecessary treatment, including with antiviral and antibody therapy, and suffer additional trauma over having to isolate from family members and friends. It might also lead to people disregarding precautions, including getting vaccinated against Covid-19, the FDA has said.

But not before April 1. Really, the gov’t lost. That’s the story here.

UK Vaccine Mandate May Force 123,000 out of Health Care Sector (ET)

The UK’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for front-line health and social care staff in England may force more than 120,000 people to leave the sector, according to government estimates. Health Secretary Sajid Javid announced on Tuesday that all those working in the National Health Service (NHS) and social care must get fully vaccinated to continue in their jobs from April 1, 2022. The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) said the mandate will apply to health and social care workers who have “direct, face-to-face contact” with patients—such as doctors, nurses, dentists, and domiciliary care workers, unless they are exempt. The rule will also apply to porters or receptionists who may have social contact with patients.

The policy is intended to “avoid preventable harm and protect patients in the NHS, protect colleagues in the NHS, and of course protect the NHS itself,” Javid told the House of Commons on Tuesday. In an impact assessment (pdf), also published on Tuesday, the government estimated that around 54,000 medical and social care staff will take up the offer of a jab as a result of the vaccine mandate. But it admitted that the policy could have a “significant impact” on the health and care workforce and could result in as many as 123,000 staff members leaving their jobs. The government’s impact statement estimates that by the end of the grace period around 88,000 health workers, including 73,000 NHS staff, and 35,000 social care workers will remain unvaccinated.

The statement warned that “any reduction in the numbers of health and social care staff may lead to reduced or delayed services” at a time when the UK health system is “stretched with an elective waiting list of 5.72 million and high levels of vacancies.” The impact report also estimates that the “cost of replacing unvaccinated workers is £270 million ($365 million).” The main opposition Labour party said it wants to see NHS staff vaccinated but advised the government to “proceed with caution” given possible staff shortages. Shadow health secretary Jon Ashworth said on Tuesday that NHS trusts are concerned that the policy “could exacerbate some of these chronic understaffing problems,” adding “we simply cannot afford to lose thousands of NHS staff overnight.” [..]the Welsh and Scottish governments are not planning to introduce mandated vaccines for health and social care staff.

    the total number of job openings remains a huge 10.438 million, which came in well above the 10.3 million expected, and just shy of the 11.1 million all time high.

    2.8 million, more vacant jobs than unemployed workers confirming that the US labor market remains painfully cracked.

    number of quits, which for the second month in a row soared to an all time high, jumping in September by 164K to a record 4.434 million.

    Employees have found ways of putting food on the table and the gov. cannot figure out HOW.

    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. (…)

    Opposition to this spiky COV scenario might have been expected from Russia (though imho many of the ‘measures’ are simply not enforceable there, plus the vaxx is different), but also Iran, badly affected early on, which officially at least, pushed non-travel etc, and now vaxxes, Sinovac, etc.

    See also Israel, which deprives the Palestinians of the vax, and is a super high vax country for Israelis. Imho, Israeli ‘leaders’ attitude to their Jewish citizens is not special, it is the same as Macron-> French citizens, for ex. The vaxx(s) are great is upheld…!

    The countries who have escaped the COV trap are poor, no money to spend on the vaxxes…(Rough corr. of course, caveats… needs look at this in more detail.)

    That Big Corps + conglomerates did not resist is also telling. E.g. the Airline, Travel, Tourist, Hotel, Conference industry. Of course they are splintered and don’t have a common platform/orgs. to form an agenda and act on it, and clearly some top ppl objected and obtained many concessions / exceptions behind the scenes, but it stops there.

    Mega-Sports bowed right away and has been vaxxing its athletes who are now falling dead on the pitch, terrain … OK this industry is not very powerful, yet it is a huge money-maker for some. What about Hollywood (and its equivalents elsewhere) – not a peep?

    World religions have mostly endorsed the vaxxes (though there are schisms within the Catholic Church) which was to be expected, they no longer have much power and must follow those who do, to preserve their look-in, influence, relevance.

    Defend-the-people type political parties in the W have been neutered.

    Oppo to the vaxxes in the W comes from what is called the ‘radical’ left (old-style leftists, pro labor, unions; defending the poor; communists, etc.) and the ‘radical’ right (pro- some form of libertarian, free-market, nationalist..) neither of which stand a chance against the centre mou (soft center) consensus, formed of parties in ‘fake’ opposition to each other in a camouflaged symbiosis with Corps.

    Kyle Rittenhouse, the man-child, is/was not an EMT on the night of the shootings. He was asked about his status that night (it’s on video). He lied.

    Only a man-child grabs an AR-15 on the way out the door to do community volunteer work.

    The child-man sobbed on the witness stand. It was a sad and tragic sight.

    Kyle Rittenhouse is RESPONSIBLE for something? Or nothing?

    What gets me is that some claim he is innocent. That is not true. He had a role in creating/producing the outcome/deaths. How is it that we can’t find our way to identify what it is that was done/not done?

    Ackman can call him a “civic-minded patriot”. Does that somehow erase his bad deeds? We elevate on the good deeds and just forget the rest? It’s like only telling half the story.

    Why is it so hard for so many to be accountable/responsible for anything these days?

    the u.s. could easily subsidize gas for many of its citizens. chevron et al. will never let it happen. venezuela used to give poor americans free heating oil. http://www.citgoheatingoil.com/ no longer. can’t have commies keepin’ ya warm, see..

    if the u.s. subsidized oil for its own citizens, soon they’d be asking for health care, too.

    I think Rittenhouse should be found Not Guilty, but Not Guilty doesn’t mean Innocent. He arrogantly and presumptuously inserted himself into a situation in which he had no business being. I trust that Mr. House agrees with me that the Team Red cultists hailing him as a hero and the Team Blue cultists damning him as a white supremacist in training are both freaking morons.

    “I too am guilty of taking the simplistic view on global warming by defaulting to the notion that can all be swept away by the fact that fluctuations in heat input from the sun is the dominate overriding mechanism.”

    I’ll also note that, while sunspot activity has been rec orded during some period of history and give us some idea of past solar cycles that we can correlate into historical climate changes a few centuries or even (iirc) millennia ago (China, I think?), we only have solid metric data, with enough nuance to call adequately precise, since the advent of modern telescopes. So saying that we “We came out of a solar max that was off-the-charts & NOW the pendulum is swinging the other way” not only exaggerates the extent of our historical knowledge of solar/cimate interactions, but just plain exaggerates, period..

    “Employees have found ways of putting food on the table and the gov. cannot figure out HOW.”

    Shared living expenses are probably the main method. Also, we have more and more homeless people. Not all homeless people are there by accident of fate, per se. Some of them by dint of freedom-focused orneriness. They’d rather not be homeless, but they’d rather not be vakzed, too. SOme of them are homeless more in name than fact: they have a couch to sleep on at night while people work but are out and about during the day hustling spare change, recycling containers for cash, selling ye olde drugs, walking dogs, ye olde sex-for-sale, etc… really, I suppose, it’s all a form of shared living expenses.

    Be homeless for a few months and you can usually get 1-2 hundred$$ food stamps, a bit of cash-cash, and begin the Medicaid shuffle.

    Noirette, don’t you think that Francis is a pope on a rope? Traditionalist Ratzinger got sidelined to make way for a pope who would toe the official line (which means that this pandemic has been planned for a long time) There’s probably a lot more to the story but that’s the simple way I read it. If a billion Catholics were told by the pope not to take the jab, that would have sent a very strong message right around the world.

    “Traditionalist Ratzinger got sidelined to make way for a pope who would toe the official line (which means that this pandemic has been planned for a long time) ”

    I don’t see it. You could say that it “suggests” that this pandemic has been planned for a long time but no more than that.

    The Mormon Church leadership toed the line without question. They’re hardly on board with the DNC/liberal power bloc. A small church evangelical pastor I know, who is ardently opposed to vakzination, toed the line in public early on.

    I think there’s a considerably stronger case for the current pope being picked for his alignment with the prevailing liberal ideological triumph in Euromerica (a phyrric victory), something I’ve seen in every church I’ve attended since moving to Portland (maybe 4-5 before giving up on ever being able to enjoy modern Xtian congregationalism; I’m too wild and earnest a Xtian for them to tolerate me).

    Embracing the LGBT community makes good business sense for them. Church attendance whas been steadily declining for decades. Embracing queers (which is the Xtian thing to do) brought in new enthusiastic members. Also, they all seem to buy into ‘prosperity Xtianity’: they all sound like Dr. Pangloss: ours is the best of all possible worlds, look how everything is getting better and better over all, the rising tide that floats all boats…

    Jesus didn’t preach that. He preached being kind and gracious to each other despite the fact that we’re nutso hominids who think they have some firm understanding of right and wrong, i.e., what Genesis calls the Knowledge of Good and Evil, but steadfastly enslave and oppress each other or, at best, allow it to happen to others so long as we’re spared the worst.

    Modern Euromerican mainstream Xtianity has become secular humanism in a Jesus suit.

    Before covidiology became our main course here, we pondered peak oil/rational economics, the radical alternative view of energy&economics, vs infinite energy/magical economics, the mainstream view of such matters.

    That in mind, this is a cunning metaphor:

    “A story is told about three experts shipwrecked on a desert island. Their situation seems far from desperate. The island is well-found in fire-wood and fresh water. Washed ashore with them are thousands of tins of baked beans, offering nourishing if monotonous fare. They even have saucepans, plates and cutlery.

    “The one thing lacking is a tin-opener.

    “The chemist proposes putting the tins in water which, in due course, will corrode them. Unfortunately, they would starve long before this could happen.

    “The physicist suggests heating the tins to a temperature at which pressure causes them to explode. This, though, would splatter beans across the island, as well as subjecting the castaways to lethal shrapnel.

    “Appealed to, the economist has a simple solution – assume a tin-opener.

    “This encapsulates the consensus line as the long era of rising prosperity created by fossil fuels draws to a close. If we assume a replacement for fossil fuels, and further assume perpetual economic growth, our problems are solved.”

    Rather than focus on using this valuable fertilizer resource, we plan to run electric cars and robotic pizza delivery drones with it. Reminds me of my fave Kunstler trope: “free fly-through sex-change clinics”.

    This is how Chile, the world’s great reserve of white gold, wants to escape its own curse

    Background:

    “The Haber process,[1] also called the Haber–Bosch process, is an artificial nitrogen fixation process and is the main industrial procedure for the production of ammonia today.[2][3] It is named after its inventors, the German chemists Fritz Haber and Carl Bosch, who developed it in the first decade of the 20th century. The process converts atmospheric nitrogen (N2) to ammonia (NH3) by a reaction with hydrogen (H2) using a metal catalyst under high temperatures and pressures:

    “Before the development of the Haber process, ammonia had been difficult to produce on an industrial scale,[4][5][6] with early methods such as the Birkeland–Eyde process and Frank–Caro process all being highly inefficient.

    “Although the Haber process is mainly used to produce fertilizer today, during World War I it provided Germany with a source of ammonia for the production of explosives, compensating for the Allied Powers’ trade blockade on Chilean saltpeter.
    ***
    As of 2018, the Haber process produces 230 million tonnes of anhydrous ammonia per year.[42] The ammonia is used mainly as a nitrogen fertilizer as ammonia itself, in the form of ammonium nitrate, and as urea. The Haber process consumes 3–5% of the world’s natural-gas production (around 1–2% of the world’s energy supply).[4][43][44][45] In combination with advances in breeding, herbicides and pesticides, these fertilizers have helped to increase the productivity of agricultural land”

    “Well, getting a pope to push shots on the flock which make use of aborted foetal tissue is not really something your everyday trad pope would be exactly likely to do, that’s why I say the pandemic must’ve been planned for some time.”

    I get the logic. I merely assert that it is suggestive not conclusive. “must’ve been planned” is strong language for a mere correlation.

    However, in general, the presence of a correlation is not sufficient to infer the presence of a causal relationship (i.e., correlation does not imply causation).

    Most people I know endorsed covidiotic vakzination despite more cognitive red flags than a referee at the annual Drunk Hockey Players’ Superbowl. Just because some dude in a prominent position is as easily misled as the bulk of humanity mostly suggests that even people in high positions are easily misled.

    I submit that, deep in our subconscious, we prefer leaders who we perceive to be evil but in genuine control over leaders who appear to be benign but not in effective control. The idea that Captain Ahab is as cluelessly incompetent as deranged is, I suspect, less comforting, and less exciting (also a major emotional factor in our decision making aka ‘sell the sizzle not the steak’), than the belief that Ahab is a masterful madman, all-evil but also all-powerful.

    Putting aside that bit of parlor psychology, the more people reined in on The Plot, the more likely The Plot will be revealed. Sedcret conspiracies require secrecy to be secret conspiracies. It’s axiomatic. Secrets, to be kept, need as few sharers as possible (apologies toJoseph Conrad).

    For example, it’s no secret that Congress is bought and sold. Most everyone knows. But they prefer that their brand of “lesser evil” be in charge, and prefer to believe that in that charge they also exercise competent control.

    Evil that Succeeds is GOOD!

    We, like our oppressing leaders, prefer power over morality when push comes to shove. We only vote for candidates that are “electable”. Then we blame them for our lack of involvement and replace them with another “lesser evil” on whom we can blame all our ills. The original scapegoat in history was supposed to be the King. If the King fucked up badly, or the rains didn’t come after he and his priests had wagged their willies mightily at the sky for weeks, the King was supposed to be sacrificed to appease the gods. But good kings delegate, jah?

    I submit that the last vestiges of moral social responsibility by our kinds and such, left when we no longer held the king mortally accountable for not doing his defined job.

    A Cautionary Tale

    In the faraway land of Usapaloosa
    Lived a fellow named Maximo G. Van Caroosa.
    Max had lots to do, he had work, wife and kids
    And he worked hard like Usapaloosans all did.
    But then one bright day at a quarter to three
    Came a knock on his door. “Now who can that be?
    I’ve paid all my bills, my boss is in Spain,
    My dog is inside and we haven’t got rain,
    So who is it knocking my door this fine day?
    What do they want and what will they say?”
    Max went to the door, he opened it wide
    And there stood a very strange person outside.
    He had on a mask for his mouth and his nose.
    A hazmat suit went from his neck to his toes.
    He had on a face shield that covered his eyes
    And gloves on his hands that were too small in size.
    And quickly the stranger jumped back in his tracks
    As if he was fearful of being near Max.
    “Well this a new one” said Max to the knocker.
    “Your mask, glove and face shield; A bit of a shocker.”
    The man on the doorstep was frowning by now.
    Though Max couldn’t see it, he knew from his brow.
    The man started speaking, an earnest low tone,
    A mix of a hiss and a snarl and a groan.
    “Although you don’t know it you’re probably ill.
    If you don’t yet have it, you certainly will.
    Your illness is catching, it floats far around.
    You spread it by breathing and touching the ground
    Your disease travels far. Your disease travels fast.
    It’s symptoms are awful. They last and they last.
    And the fact that you’re living and breathing today
    Means I just might catch it from you in some way.
    So I have decided that you need to care
    And wear the same outfit that I always wear.
    A mask and a face shield, some gloves and a suit
    And even the underwear I wear to boot!”
    “But I feel just fine,” said Max to the person
    “I’m sure I’m not sick, but if I should worsen,
    I’m perfectly willing to stay here at home
    Until I am better and safely can roam.”
    “I see” said the guest, “you’re a dangerous man
    And since you refuse I will tell you my plan.
    Tonight when your sleeping, round ‘bout two o’ six
    I’ll come to your house with my sick-person fix.
    I’ll burn down your house, while you’re all abed
    And that will take care of the illness you spread.”
    But Max said, “Now really, just how can this be?
    It seems like you’re dangerous much more than me.
    You threaten my life, you threaten my house,
    You threaten my dog and my kids and my spouse!”
    The stranger then smiled, “Here’s what you don’t see!
    I’ve talked to the townsfolk and we all agree
    That you are a danger, we must be pre-emptive.
    To burn down you house is an action redemptive,
    For ridding the town of a person like you
    Proves we all have virtue. What else can we do?”
    The man turned around and walked off the porch
    But Max was concerned by the threat of the scorch.
    He went out and purchased a mask for his face,
    Some gloves and a shield and a suit just in case.
    He also got underwear, shiny and new
    Ah, yes this sounds silly, but what could he do?

    sumac: I beg to differ from Kunstler where he says that the same people who question vaccine safety also question the climate change narrative. For me this has not been the case, nor for many friends. In fact it is odd to recon with the fact that I accept the broad scientific consensus around climate change (that it is caused by human activity in this case) but I don’t accept the broad scientific consensus that vaccination is the best way to deal with the pandemic.
