Horse dewormer is 438 times safer than the vaccines.

 

 

 

“..69 cases of confirmed (57) or probable (12) cases of acute kidney injury and renal failure, but that includes none at all in the U.S., strangely. A third of the cases (23) were fatal at the time of the report with only 10 of the cases resolved.”

Leaked Pfizer Post-Marketing Safety Report (Mathew Crawford)

Late yesterday, I received a purportedly leaked copy of a Pfizer post-marketing safety report, marked confidential and dated April 30, 2021 and tracks adverse events through February 28, 2021 of a cohort of 42,086 case reports of patients who suffered post-injection adverse events. The 38-page report, if validated, contains Pfizer’s internal knowledge of an extremely serious number of illnesses, injuries, and deaths associated with its injectable product recipients (call them “vaccines” if you like). Note: I cannot yet vouch for the authenticity of the document, but in my opinion, it looks legitimate. Before we dig into the details, let’s take the conservative approach and note that this purported internal study does not involve investigations of causal associations. I will discuss some basic computations along the way, but take them with an appropriate grain of salt. There are a lot of missing details from which to make important leaps. As such, consider my computations to be “envelope math”, if soberly performed. The crux of the report is the table on page 7:

It appears that roughly half of the reported AEs are serious AEs (SAEs).

Vaccine Associated Enhanced Disease (VAED). I am inclined for the moment to take as face-value the lack of detection of VAED as my opinion has veered further and further toward the belief that these injectable products simply don’t interact much with the virus in most individuals (perhaps in the immunocompromised who can carry the virus for months, we see evolutionary pressures that may lead to variants of interest).

In Table 7, there are 69 cases of confirmed (57) or probable (12) cases of acute kidney injury and renal failure, but that includes none at all in the U.S., strangely. A third of the cases (23) were fatal at the time of the report with only 10 of the cases resolved. The lack of cases for these SAEs is entirely unlike the rest of the report where U.S. cases are the most or second-most common. Are these cases being hidden in the U.S.? On the other hand, the U.S. topped the charts in medical errors, and by a wide margin [also unlike the rest of the report]. Huh.

“Elon will make it to Mars way before the documents would be fully released ..”

First Batch Of Pfizer Documents: Over 1,200 Vaccine Deaths In First 90 Days (GP)

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released the first batch of documents related to Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine after a federal judge ordered that they must comply with a massive Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that was filed by a government accountability group called Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency. The esteemed group of more than 30 professors and scientists asked the federal government to share any and all data that factored into the agency’s hasty decision to grant Pfizer’s experimental mRNA vaccine an emergency use authorization (EUA) – which amounts to a trove of over 329,000 documents.

In a shameless effort to bury the information, the FDA challenged the FOIA request in court. After the agency was told that it must turn over the documents, Justice Department lawyers representing the FDA asked a federal judge to allow them an unthinkable 55 years to process the request, saying that they would be able to release just 500 pages a month. In other words, Elon will make it to Mars way before the documents would be fully released – in the year 2076. A motion that was also filed by the same group of doctors and scientists is currently pending in federal court that would force the FDA to expedite processing and releasing these documents. Meanwhile, the FDA still has to comply with the original order to begin turning over documents. Lo and behold, the first release is a bombshell.

According to an official Pfizer document that is titled Cumulative Analysis of Post-Authorization Adverse Event Records Reports, in just the first 90 days of the vaccine’s roll out under the FDA’s EUA – from December 1st. 2020 – February 28th, 2021 – there were TENS OF THOUSANDS of reported adverse reactions, including OVER 1200 DEATHS. The report only included adverse events to the vaccine that researchers considered “serious cases,” there were thousands more submissions that were left out of this data. Any cases deemed “non-serious” would be processed within 90 days, but this report was released before 90 days of Pfizer’s vaccine being available had even passed.

Fourth Dose May Be Required To Tackle Pandemic – Greek Expert (K.)

A fourth dose of vaccine against Covid-19 may be needed later on in the pandemic to protect the general public from the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus, according to Athanasios Tsakris, professor of microbiology and member of the Health Ministry’s committee of experts on the pandemic. Tsakris said the issue is being discussed among pharmaceutical companies but much more data will be required to know how the variant will behave. “The specially formulated vaccine, if needed, can be prepared in a short time. However, clinical data is needed in order to give the green light in time for its administration.


“The information we have is that this whole process will take 2-3 months,” he told Skai. Asked about the third dose of the vaccine that has been rolled out in Greece, Tsakris said he is in favour of speeding up its administration to five months from the current six. Health Minister Thanos Plevris announced Thursday that health authorities had identified the first case of Covid-19 caused by the Omicron variant, in a Greek national who returned from South Africa to Crete.

Please stop saying “extremely rare”, or we’re going to be extremely mad.

AstraZeneca Uncovers What’s Triggering Blood Clots After Its Jab (DM)

Scientists believe they have solved the mystery behind the extremely rare blood clots caused by the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine. A team of international experts, involving researchers from AstraZeneca, say that in a very small number of cases — about one in 100,000 in the UK — the vaccine can set off a chain reaction which leads to the body confusing its own blood platelets for fragments of virus. The British-made vaccine is thought to have saved about a million lives from Covid and was the backbone of the UK’s initial rollout earlier in the year, helping it to become the most vaccinated country in the West.

But concerns about clots saw its restriction in under-40s in the UK in spring and led Pfizer and Moderna’s vaccines being favoured for young adults and as boosters. It was outright banned in many European countries and the US decided not to purchase a single dose. The UK Government gave an emergency grant to a team of scientists led by Cardiff University to investigate the clotting phenomenon. They found that the shell of the vector vaccine — the weakened cold virus used to teach cells how to neutralise Covid — sometimes acts like a magnet and attracts platelets, a protein found in the blood.

For reasons the scientists are still probing, the body then mistakes these platelets as a threat and produces antibodies to fight them. The combination of the platelets and the antibodies clumping together leads to the formation of dangerous blood clots. But they stress this is extremely rare, with only 426 cases in the UK recorded the cases so far out of about 50million doses of the vaccine, equivalent to less than one in 100,000. The side effect has been linked to 73 deaths in the UK. Researchers are now doing further work to learn more about the process that causes these clots and if the vaccine can be tweaked to reduce this risk.

“Unscientific” would have been enough.

Vaccine Mandates: Unscientific, Divisive, and Enormously Costly (BI)

[..] the most relevant study endpoint is not death from COVID-19 but all-cause mortality, which counts every death that occurred during the study period. All-cause mortality is the key outcome of interest not simply because it circumvents the oftentimes subjective decision as to why someone died but also because it balances all the possible effects of a COVID-19 vaccine, both good and bad, that could influence risk of death. In other words, it allows us to quantify lives saved by the COVID-19 vaccine while taking into account potential lives lost from vaccine-related heart disease, blood clots, severe allergic reactions, and perhaps other causes.

Because results from the two trials were so similar regardless of the type of vaccine used it is helpful to merge the results. Following a combined total of 74,580 individuals, half given the COVID-19 vaccination and half given a placebo shot, over six to seven months, the two studies reported that thirty-seven people who were vaccinated died as compared to thirty-three people who received placebo. Simply put, the very best scientific evidence currently available to mankind does not support the widely held contention that COVID-19 vaccination using the Pfizer or Moderna brands lowers risk of death, at least over the first half-year after vaccination. Interestingly, these striking findings were not reported in the main body of the papers but in supplemental sections. There are several additional points to consider.

First, the studies’ findings were limited by the fact that their design did not take into consideration previous infection leading to subsequent immunity from COVID-19 infection, which could very well have lowered risk of death in one or both study groups. Second, there are serious concerns over falsification of data and other data integrity issues in the Pfizer trial so this could also have influenced results. Importantly, because both trials mostly excluded groups at highest risk of dying from COVID-19 such as the frail elderly, the very obese, or those with serious chronic illnesses, we cannot assume that the vaccines do not protect against death in these populations. Based on my clinical judgment and lesser quality supportive evidence, I generally assume when treating such patients that the vaccine’s benefits outweigh its risks and so advocate for their use, though I cannot be absolutely certain they offer protection against death because of the lack of randomized controlled evidence.

Finally, the very low rates of death from COVID-19 observed in both studies should serve to remind us of how minimal this risk is in the general population.the most relevant study endpoint is not death from COVID-19 but all-cause mortality, which counts every death that occurred during the study period. All-cause mortality is the key outcome of interest not simply because it circumvents the oftentimes subjective decision as to why someone died but also because it balances all the possible effects of a COVID-19 vaccine, both good and bad, that could influence risk of death. In other words, it allows us to quantify lives saved by the COVID-19 vaccine while taking into account potential lives lost from vaccine-related heart disease, blood clots, severe allergic reactions, and perhaps other causes.

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The federal mandates are dead. They’re feeding you the info a little every day, so Biden doesn’t look so bad.

CMS Suspends Vaccine Mandate Enforcement (ET)

The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) suspended enforcement of its vaccine mandate for healthcare workers after two court orders earlier this week. A memo issued by the agency, posted by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt on Twitter Thursday, said that CMS “remains confident” it will prevail in court but is “suspending activities related to the implementation and enforcement of this rule pending future development in the litigation.” “While these preliminary injunctions are in effect,” it continues to say, “CMS surveyors must not survey providers for compliance with the requirements” with the rule. The memo is referring to federal government officials conducting checks of whether Medicare- or Medicaid-funded facilities are complying with the Biden administration’s mandate that healthcare staff gets fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by Jan. 4.

The CMS rule allows for religious and medical exemptions to the vaccine. Schmitt, a Republican who is running for Missouri’s U.S. Senate seat, hailed CMS’s memo as a victory in a Twitter post. This week, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri and the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana issued preliminary injunctions against the CMS vaccine rule, which was unveiled on Nov. 4 alongside federal rules that mandate either testing or vaccines for employers with 100 or more workers. “Between the two of them, these injunctions cover all states” as well as Washington, D.C. and U.S. territories, the memo said. CMS has appealed the two federal court decisions.

The rule for private businesses, which is being enforced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, was dealt a blow last month when a U.S. Fifth Court of Appeals issued an injunction that blocked its enforcement. The same court affirmed its previous decision several days later, which is currently being challenged by the Biden administration.

I don’t believe Merkel doesn’t know the Nuremberg Code.

Germany: Mandatory Covid Jabs A Step Closer As Unvaccinated Face Lockdown (G.)

Vaccination could become mandatory in Germany from February, Angela Merkel has said, as she announced what her successor as chancellor, Olaf Scholz, described as “a lockdown of the unvaccinated”. As more EU countries confirmed cases of the Omicron variant, which the bloc’s health agency said could make up more than half of all infections on the continent within months, Merkel described the situation as “very serious”. Meeting with Scholz and Germany’s 16 state leaders for emergency talks on Thursday on tougher measures to stem rocketing Covid cases, the outgoing chancellor said an “act of national solidarity” was required.

“We have understood that the situation is very serious and that we want to take further measures in addition to those already taken,” she said. “To do this, the fourth wave must be broken, and this has not yet been achieved.” Daily new infections in Germany have broken records in recent weeks, with many hospitals operating at or over capacity. Authorities said 73,209 new cases were recorded in the past 24 hours. Deaths have surged from a rolling seven-day average of just over 10 a day in August to nearly 300 this week. Merkel said Germany’s ethics council would issue formal guidance on a vaccine mandate, and the Bundestag would vote on the legislation by the end of the year. If passed, the rule would come into force from February.

“Given the situation, I think it is appropriate to adopt compulsory vaccination,” said Merkel, who is due hand over to Scholz next week. The move would follow the example of neighbouring Austria, which is planning mandatory vaccinations from February. Greece also announced mandatory jabs for the over-60s, with unvaccinated people facing fines if they fail to comply. Merkel also announced a blanket ban on people who have not been vaccinated or recovered from Covid entering bars, restaurants, theatres, cinemas and other leisure venues, as well as non-essential shops and Christmas markets. In areas where the incidence rate exceeds 350 per 100,000 people, discos and nightclubs will close.

The one study cited everywhere, gone. Masks gone, too?!

Researchers Shoot Holes In Study Touted For Confirming ‘Masks Work’ (JTN)

An acclaimed study on the effectiveness of masks in reducing symptomatic COVID-19 is facing new scrutiny after a researcher highlighted the minuscule infection differences between “treatment” and control groups randomized across 600 Bangladeshi villages. Accused of design flaws and overstating its findings when it was released in late August, the study’s newly released data show only 20 more symptomatic COVID cases in the villages that didn’t receive masks and related education, reminders and “role modeling by community leaders.” In a total study population of 342,126 adults, 1,106 people in the control group tested positive, compared to 1,086 in the treatment group. The latter group represented 52% of the study population.

“I have a hard time going from these numbers to the assured conclusions that ‘masks work’ that was promulgated by the media or the authors after this preprint [not yet peer reviewed] appeared,” University of California Berkeley professor Ben Recht, who studies machine learning, wrote in an essay last week. He said he was frustrated that the “raw number of seropositive cases” was left out of the preprint by researchers led by Yale University economists Jason Abaluck and Ahmed Mobarak, preventing him from “computing standard statistical analyses of their results.” The researchers posted the replication code and data in early November, long after media coverage touting “the largest randomized trial to demonstrate the effectiveness of surgical masks, in particular, to curb transmission of the coronavirus.”

In light of the full release, “a complex intervention including an educational program, free masks, encouraged mask wearing, and surveillance in a poor country with low population immunity and no vaccination showed at best modest reduction in infection,” Recht said. The newly provided raw numbers exacerbate other weaknesses of the study, according to Recht, who was also initially skeptical of the research because of its “statistical ambiguity.” The study was not blinded, did not exclude pre-intervention infections, and was “highly complex” because of the mixed interventions, he said.

300,000 Brits Face Heart Problems Due To Post-Pandemic Stress Disorder (ES)

Up to 300,000 people in the UK are facing heart-related illnesses due to post-pandemic stress disorder (PPSD), two London physicians have warned. This could result in a 4.5 per cent rise in cardiovascular cases nationally because of the effects of PPSD, with those aged between 30 to 45 most at-risk, they claim. Mark Rayner, a former senior NHS psychological therapist and founder of EASE Wellbeing CIC, said that as many as three million people in Britain are already suffering from PPSD, thanks to stress and anxiety caused by the effects of Covid-19. He fears this could result in a dramatic rise in physical health issues, such as coronary heart failure, if cases are not detected or treated early.

Mr Rayner said: “PPSD is a very real problem on a massive scale. As well as the condition itself with all its immediate problems, one of the biggest collateral issues is the affect it can have on heart health. “It is widely recognised that reducing stress and mental health problems is crucial to the prevention and recovery of cardiovascular events such as heart attacks and strokes. “We are talking about as many as 300,000 new patients with heart issues.” Mr Rayner warned that without at least doubling the current funding, the NHS will not be able to tackle the “trauma timebomb”, which could have potentially fatal consequences for those suffering with long-term PPSD.

Meanwhile, Tahir Hussain, a senior vascular surgeon at Northwick Park Hospital in Harrow, said he has seen a significant rise in cases where he works. He said: “I’ve seen a big increase in thrombotic-related vascular conditions in my practice. Far younger patients are being admitted and requiring surgical and medical intervention than prior to the pandemic. “I believe many of these cases are a direct result of the increased stress and anxiety levels caused from the effects of PPSD. “We also have evidence that some patients have died at home from conditions such as pulmonary embolism and myocardial infarction. I believe this is related to many people self-isolating at home with no contact with the outside world and dying without getting the help they needed.”

NATO faking relevance.

Russia Warns About Nightmare Scenario Of Military Confrontation In Europe (RT)

Europe may be returning to a situation of military confrontation, and NATO is completely refusing to listen to all Russian proposals to de-escalate tensions, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov claimed on Thursday. Speaking in Stockholm, which is currently hosting a meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council, Lavrov emphasized that Moscow wants to improve “strategic stability” on the continent, which he said is “rapidly eroding.” “NATO refuses to consider our proposals on de-escalation of tensions and prevention of dangerous incidents,” Lavrov said, accusing the US-led bloc of rejecting constructive discussion. “On the contrary, the alliance’s military infrastructure is moving closer to Russia’s borders… The nightmarish scenario of military confrontation is returning.”


Lavrov’s comments come amid increasing fears over an alleged military buildup on the Russian border with Ukraine. Since the start of November, some Western media outlets have claimed that Moscow is planning an “invasion” of its neighbor, an allegation strongly denied by the Kremlin. Last month, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg asked Russia to be transparent about its military activities, calling the purported troop buildup “large” and “unusual.” “We have to be clear-eyed, we need to be realistic about the challenges we face,” he said. “We know that Russia has been willing to use these types of military capabilities before to conduct aggressive actions against Ukraine.”

Assange Judge Is 40-Year ‘Good Friend’ Of Minister Who Set Up Arrest (DUK)

Lord Chief Justice Ian Burnett, the judge that will soon decide Julian Assange’s fate, is a close personal friend of Sir Alan Duncan, who as foreign minister arranged Assange’s eviction from the Ecuadorian embassy. The two have known each other since their student days at Oxford in the 1970s, when Duncan called Burnett “the Judge”. Burnett and his wife attended Duncan’s birthday dinner at a members-only London club in 2017, when Burnett was a judge at the court of appeal. Now the most powerful judge in England and Wales, Burnett will soon rule on Assange’s extradition case. The founder of WikiLeaks faces life imprisonment in the US. In his recently published diaries, In The Thick of It, Duncan wrote in July 2017: “My good friend and Oxford contemporary Ian Burnett is announced as the next Lord Chief Justice.”

He continued: “At Oxford we always called him ‘the Judge’ and they always called me ‘Prime Minister’, but Ian’s the one who’s got there.” In an emailed response to Declassified, Lord Chief Justice Burnett confirmed he and Duncan have been “friends since university days”. Duncan studied politics and economics at St John’s College, Oxford from 1976-79, while Burnett studied jurisprudence at Pembroke College in the same period. “At Oxford we always called him ‘the Judge’ and they always called me ‘Prime Minister’” Duncan’s diaries also show that as foreign minister he spoke privately to Lord Chief Justice Burnett in May 2019, a conversation that was not logged in government records. Burnett briefed him on a dinner he’d had with then prime minister Theresa May two days before.

But Duncan told Declassified: “There was nothing that was required to be ‘logged in government records’.” He and Burnett both said nothing related to their roles as a minister or judge was discussed. Duncan served as foreign minister for Europe and the Americas from 2016-19. He was the key official in the UK government campaign to force Assange from the embassy. As minister, Duncan did not hide his opposition to Julian Assange, calling him a “miserable little worm” in parliament in March 2018. In his diaries, Duncan refers to the “supposed human rights of Julian Assange”. He admits to arranging a Daily Mail hit piece on Assange that was published the day after the journalist’s arrest in April 2019.

Duncan watched UK police pulling the WikiLeaks publisher from the Ecuadorian embassy via a live-feed in the Operations Room at the top of the Foreign Office. He later admitted he was “trying to keep the smirk off [his] face”, and hosted drinks at his parliamentary office for the team involved in the eviction. Duncan then flew to Ecuador to meet President Lenín Moreno in order to “say thank you” for handing over Assange. Duncan reported he gave Moreno “a beautiful porcelain plate from the Buckingham Palace gift shop.” “Job done,” he added.

    I realized something else from yesterday: the reporters all know what the USSC and government will do, but Conservatives don’t. They just go about what they’re doing. But that’s just what you would expect with a merger of (media) Corporation and State under the pirate banner of the CIA/CCP. They know (or think they know) because they’re all the SAME people, same team. The U.S. people are the outsiders of the Big Club that you ain’t in.

    And reporters, corporations, billionaires, military contractors, Congressmen, are on the Inside.

    Anybody but you. Anybody but the workers and the dog-faces. If you ain’t at the table, you’re the meal. So thanks, media, for telling me all this! True confirmation of what one might only suspect.

    “The specially formulated vaccine,”

    WHAT specially formulated vaccine? It won’t be ready for months if at all. We’ll have two more variants by then.

    And we know they work so well because so far EVERY Omicron patient has been vaccinated. Perhaps ONLY vaccinated people can get it, who knows, because that sure is odd.

    It also is so mild it would be a miracle if you knew you had it. So: the end. Endemic. Everywhere, and so safe no one notices. As the Dore reporter said yesterday “But this means non-stop, world-wide panic, right?”

    Vaccine Mandates: Unscientific, Divisive, and Enormously Costly (BI)”

    “Unscientific”–comma– Biden and Fauci said –comma– without evidence. But they can’t have science: “There is no truth in them.”

    “The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) suspended enforcement of its vaccine mandate for healthcare workers after two court orders earlier this week.”

    What a shock. You mean the plainly written law is a plainly written law? Laws have to be PASSED by somebody? Who knew?

    “Vaccination could become mandatory in Germany from February, Angela Merkel has said,”

    What does “mandatory” mean if nobody follows it? A: Discredited. A: The end of everything if you’re a government.

    “We have understood that the situation is very serious”

    “Very serious.” Can’t you see how serious I am? I’m wearing a serious coat. Of a variant that hits only the vaccinated and can’t be noticed without a test. Gosh, stop the world. Especially the 200k cancer screenings from UK yesterday. We definitely wouldn’t want to bother with not-serious things like “Cancer”, that’s how serious we are about saving lives.

    “Researchers Shoot Holes in Study Touted for Confirming ‘Masks Work’ (JTN)”

    That’s not what Oxford said, showing zero difference from different rules in England and Scotland. …And every other study ever performed. Like the child/school study from the CDC in August. And Fauci told us in 2020, before he told us the #Opposite. Two more times.

    Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Failing failures and the fails they fail. @Fail. #Fail. http://www.Fail.com. 2 years, 200 countries, 8,000-million test subjects. Fail. Fail every WHERE it’s tried, every TIME it’s tried. Fail.

    But I don’t want to fail belabor the failing point. I only want people to stop jumping in a toilet saying it’s raining.

    “300,000 Brits Face Heart Problems Due to Post-Pandemic Stress Disorder (ES)”

    Ah. You see, losing 10% of all men in WWI and waiting for bombs for 6 years in WWII doesn’t cause heart problems. But sitting home watching Netflix and calling in Curry does. Got it. You remember this with Edward V in the War of the Roses, immortalized in Shakespeare: “Alas, poor Yorick, my heart! Eeeep!”

    And who could forget the 2012 Olympics when all the fans keeled over in the stands, just like all the Hooligans used to for Manchester under George Best? They were famous for being placid after games on game day because otherwise they’d have heart attacks in the Tube. Even Maggie Thatcher succumbed to heart-war stress. I mean, you remember all this, right?

    “Russia Warns about Nightmare Scenario of Military Confrontation in Europe (RT)”

    Why would that be a nightmare? The U.S. would be completely discredited and go home. The EU and all of Europe don’t have an army and would collapse like the dysfunctional Disneyland they are. And China would take Taiwan in the confusion. Wall Street crashes, takes Congress with them, and the power devolves to the people, i.e. the workers. What’s not to like? I say go for it.

    “Lord Chief Justice Ian Burnett, the judge that will soon decide Julian Assange’s fate, is a close personal friend of Sir Alan Duncan, who as foreign minister arranged Assange’s eviction”

    Just like Judge Flynn and Maxwell’s trial, with top judge “accidentally” draws the case, “accidentally” run by Comey’s daughter. It’s a big club and it attacks and kills everyone who’s not in it.

    Carl Sagan: yes, but he believed in the Big Bang Theory, so how smart can he really be?

    Newsweek article “Why I’m Not Vaccinated,” by Lisa Boothe:

    HBO’s Bill Maher recently railed against the COVID-related hysteria that has taken over the nation. Maher pointed to a Gallup poll that found 41 percent of Democrats believed the unvaccinated have an over-50 percent risk of hospitalization, but, per Gallup, it’s actually “0.89 percent.” This then raises the obvious question: Is the Biden administration governing by paranoia or based on the actual underlying facts?

    During a July CNN town hall, Biden told the American people, “you’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.” This declaration came after a group of fully vaccinated Texas Democratic state legislators turned a visit to Washington, D.C. into a super-spreader event. Shortly after, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky admitted, “unlike with other variants, vaccinated people infected with Delta can transmit the virus.” In August, Walensky told CNN that the vaccines “continue to work well with Delta with regard to severe illness and death, but what they can’t do anymore is prevent transmission.”

    …The vaccine helps protect the vaccinated from dying, but it does not protect the vaccinated from either getting or spreading COVID. In other words, it seems clear to many of us that the vaccine is a personal health benefit, not a public health benefit. Therefore, whether to get vaccinated is a profoundly personal decision, not a public health decision. And not everyone is high-risk. There is a more than a thousand-fold difference in the risk of mortality between the old and young. The decision I am making as a healthy 36-year-old is different than the one Joe Biden should make as a 78-year-old. And low-risk Millennials like me comprise the largest generation in the broader U.S. labor force. At a time when America faces a worker shortage and a supply-chain crisis, why would we sideline more workers?

    This entire situation has become so ridiculous it’s hard to even talk about it anymore.

    Some countries are now mandating vaxx for all … but every highly vaxxed country has more cases than at any time in the past, and following the initial vaxx push most had waves of cases that don’t track with typical seasonal waves.

    UK makes up a new name to explain away the exponential rise in vaxx related heart problems – PPSD – and people will actually *listen* to these asshats. If PPSD is a thing, where was it last fall? It takes two years to show up, is that what they’re saying?

    More Than 400 Studies on the Failure of Compulsory Covid Interventions

    Not to drag Theranos failure into the conversation, but simply to point out that the “It’s a small club and you ain’t in it!” adage is alive and well:

    [From Yahoo News] “During his cross-examination, Leach pressed Holmes on her efforts to kill a 2015 investigative report in the Wall Street Journal by John Carreyrou that exposed Theranos’ flawed technology…Holmes, in turn, admitted to making a direct appeal to Rupert Murdoch, owner of the Journal’s publisher, who had invested $125 million in Theranos.”

    “When none of the tactics against the Journal succeeded, Leach aimed to show that Holmes tried to intimidate former Theranos employees Erika Cheung and Tyler Shultz, who reported concerns to government regulators and informed the Journal’s investigation. Shultz — grandson of former Secretary of State and Theranos board member George Shultz — also escalated concerns internally.”

    Of course, Holmes’ father was also a senior executive at Enron, so, well, draw your own conclusions on her values system. Lots and lots of high-dollar connections.

    And some folks wonder why there is so much questioning of authority and the media (“Lord Chief Justice Ian Burnett, the judge that will soon decide Julian Assange’s fate, is a close personal friend of Sir Alan Duncan, who as foreign minister arranged Assange’s eviction from the Ecuadorian embassy. The two have known each other since their student days at Oxford in the 1970s, when Duncan called Burnett “the Judge”. )

    Study finds Covid Vaccines increase the risk of Heart Attack by 127%

    A few days after these ominous results came out, a whistleblower and researcher from a different group contacted Dr Aseem Malhotra to say that in imaging studies they have found inflammation in the coronary arteries after vaccination. But they decided not to publish this yet because they are afraid of losing future grant money from the drug industry. The whistleblower was quite upset about this. Understandably.

    We may be going down, but I’d rather live here than most other places at this point. Beginning to appreciate our form of government more and more as I watch what is taking place in other countries. Also appreciate having 50 states to choose from when deciding where to live. And have grown to appreciate our right to own guns. (Yeah, our government poisons us with toxic food more than other countries, but we can choose what we eat to a large extent.)

    Does Germany’s vaccine mandate violate the Nuremberg Code or not?

    Well, those friendly fact-checking folks at AP have saved you all the bother and says that the mandate doesn’t break the Code.

    “ CLAIM: Germany’s new restrictions for people who have not received the COVID-19 vaccine, and a potential vaccine mandate for all, violate the Nuremberg Code.

    AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. The Nuremberg Code, a set of ethical research principles created after World War II in response to atrocities committed by Nazi scientists, concern research involving human subjects, not public health interventions.

    THE FACTS: German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced on Thursday that unvaccinated people in Germany will be barred from nonessential stores, restaurants, and sports and cultural venues, as COVID cases rise across the country. German lawmakers will also consider imposing a vaccine mandate for all.

    Following the announcement, claims quickly spread on Twitter that one or both of the measures violated the Nuremberg Code.

    One tweet, which was posted on Thursday morning and refers to the restrictions for unvaccinated people, states, “Germany returning to its Nazi roots and doing away with the Nuremberg code.”

    “Forced inoculations in violation of the Nuremberg code and a creepy parade to celebrate it. Germany never changes,” read another tweet in response to a news article about a military parade in Merkel’s honor.

    But Germany’s new COVID-19 measures don’t violate the Nuremberg Code, legal and medical ethics experts told The Associated Press.

    The code was designed to protect people from involuntary experiments and abuse. In contrast, Germany’s new restrictions on movement for unvaccinated people is a public health intervention, not an experiment on humans. And the COVID-19 vaccines have already undergone clinical trials and aren’t, at this stage, experimental.

    “The Nuremberg Code was put in place to protect people from being forced to participate in experiments. None of these measures qualify,” Dorit Reiss, a law professor at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, told the AP. “None of this is forcing people to participate in experiments.”

    https://apnews.com/article/fact-checking-803459060082

    Er, yes they are experimental since the current trial phase doesn’t end until 2023. In addition, the clinical trials they underwent were a disaster as the recently released docs from Pfizer show. So, yes, they have been through clinical trials and found to be unfit for purpose.

    Personally, I would have thought that something could only be called a public health intervention if it improved the public’s health, but I suppose that if you’re going to be pedantic about it, making the public’s health worse also qualifies.

    There is a wide yawning black infinity. In every direction the extension is endless, the sensation of depth is overwhelming. And the darkness is immortal. Where light exists, it is pure, blazing, fierce; but light exists almost nowhere, and the blackness itself is also pure and blazing and fierce. But most of all, there is very nearly nothing in the dark; except for little bits here and there, often associated with the light, this infinite receptacle is empty.
    This picture is strangely frightening. It should be familiar. It is our universe.
    Even these stars, which seem so numerous, are, as sand, as dust, or less than dust, in the enormity of the space in which there is nothing. Nothing! We are not without empathetic terror when we open Pascal’s Pensées and read, “I am the great silent spaces between worlds.” (Carl Sagan)

    He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. (Psalm 18:11)

    In the world of quantum mechanics, which describes action on a subatomic scale, random fluctuations can produce matter and energy out of nothingness. And this can lead to very big things indeed.

    I wonder what an audible disturbance, i.e. “Let there be light” lead to?

This is how dumb they think you are; just send us your personal nude selfies and sex scenes and we PROMISE we will only keep them on file so that if someone (other than you) tries to use them, our computer algorithm will recognize them and prevent them from being uploaded. We also promise we won’t peek at them ourselves and laugh about your fat butt or your strange proclivities.

    ************
    Meta, the new name for Facebook Inc., has co-developed a platform that asks people to submit their intimate photos and videos in order to prevent them from being used as ‘revenge porn’ on Facebook or Instagram.
    The tool is for “adults over 18 years old who think an intimate image of them may be shared, or has already been shared, without their consent,” Meta said in a blogpost on Thursday.
    The new platform, which Meta developed together with the UK Revenge Porn Helpline and 50 other NGOs, aims to prevent the publication of ‘revenge porn’, rather than just removing the delicate files after they’ve already appeared online.
    Concerned users are being asked to submit photos or videos of themselves naked or having sex to a hash-tagging database through the StopNCII.org (Stop Non-Consensual Intimate Images) website.
    The special hashtags, or “digital fingerprints,” are then assigned to those materials by the tool, and can be used to instantly detect and curb attempts to upload them online by the perpetrators.
    Meta said that the system had been developed “with privacy and security at every step.” Only the hashtags are being shared with StopNCII.org and the tech platforms participating in the project, while the explicit images and clips never leave the user’s device and remain “securely in the possession of the owner,” it assured.
    The new tool represents “a sea-change in the way those affected by intimate image abuse can protect themselves,” Revenge Porn Helpline manager Sophie Mortimer insisted.
    But the question remains whether people will actually be willing to use it, considering Meta’s bad rap for mishandling user data.

    Is a symptoms of Omicron a sore throat?

    Symptoms

    COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Most infected people will develop mild to moderate illness and recover without hospitalization.

    Most common symptoms:
    fever
    cough
    tiredness
    loss of taste or smell

    Less common symptoms:
    sore throat
    headache
    aches and pains
    diarrhoea
    a rash on skin, or discolouration of fingers or toes
    red or irritated eyes

    Serious symptoms:
    difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
    loss of speech or mobility, or confusion
    chest pain

    Seek immediate medical attention if you have serious symptoms. Always call before visiting your doctor or health facility.

    People with mild symptoms who are otherwise healthy should manage their symptoms at home.

    On average it takes 5–6 days from when someone is infected with the virus for symptoms to show, however it can take up to 14 days.

    World Health Organization Says “No Evidence” Booster Jabs Would Offer “Greater Protection” to the Healthy

    World Health Organization Says “No Evidence” Booster Jabs Would Offer “Greater Protection” to the Healthy

    The World Health Organization has questioned the UK government’s decision to roll out hundreds of millions of booster jabs to its population, asserting there is “no evidence” they would offer “greater protection” to the healthy.

    UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid’s says the country has secured an additional 114 million vaccine doses for 2022 and 2023 to “buy time” and that everyone over the age of 18 will be offered one by the end of January.

    Dr. Mike Ryan, head of the WHO’s emergencies program, questioned the logic behind this decision.

    “Right now, there is no evidence that I’m aware of that would suggest that boosting the entire population would necessarily provide any greater protection for otherwise healthy individuals against hospitalization and death,” he said.

    Ryan also noted that the UK was in a “luxurious position” of being able to offer booster shots to its entire population given that many poorer countries don’t even have even vaccines to give all their people one dose.

    UK medical authorities have also seized upon the Omicron variant to insist that more children receive vaccines.

    This is odd given that the variant has become noted for only causing “mild” symptoms in younger populations.

    Experts argue that dismissing Omicron as “mild” is dangerous because South Africa has a very young population (average age 27) and we don’t know how it will impact older people.

    They then say the solution is to vaccinate more younger people.

    Makes total sense.

    Witnessing the beginning of the end of an era, namely the existence of – ‘democratic’ – ‘Western’ societies.. is fascinating and terrifying…

    Below a list of commonly mentioned ‘causes’ of the COV19 disaster.

    Obviously some of them have an ‘inevitable’ and ‘out of control of humans’ feel. Others clearly rest on secret plots, conspiracies, planned by relatively restricted cabals.

    Some are in-between, recall that no matter what is going on, some ‘leaders’, groups, sections of society such as businesses, Corps, professional associations, ‘political’ groups, etc., will jump on board because they aim to exploit the crisis for their own ends, confident of success, they see an opportunity for gains in power, riches, image.

    Others join because of the general movement, and yet others sign on (or at least never oppose) because they fear extinction, exclusion, irrelevance.

    These ‘causes’ or states-of-affairs are to be taken as direct or contributory, are not mutually exclusive, can be mixed up together, like spices in a stew.

    — Late-Stage Capitalism (imbalances, over-exploitation, etc.)

    — Economy (in the ‘West’) about to implode, usual reason, massive, unpayable, debt

    — Winding down of the glorious Fossil Fuel Energy Age (energy crunches, peaks, failures, infrastructure broken, supply lines affected, etc.)

    — Death of Empire, of the USA, as following on from the Brits, no will to admit, bend, negotiate

    —Collapse of too-complex Societies. A widget in the works and things fail, ppl go nuts

    — Engineered die-off, depopulation. Humans as the ultimate destroyers of the natural world, have to be ‘culled’, here, global warming comes in often

    — Creating a Global dictatorship under a ‘medical’ guise to deal with all the present problems and fulfill many aims at once

    — Religious, esoteric, magical readings and prophecies, end times of various kinds

    — Other …

    “Even these stars, which seem so numerous, are, as sand, as dust, or less than dust, in the enormity of the space in which there is nothing. Nothing!” – Carl Sagan

    Wrong! Spoken like a true physicalist. Sagan had a knack for making nonsense like the Big Bang sound profound. If space is empty, as he claimed, how could light propagate across its vastness without a wave medium? If oceanic waves require water (H2O), what do electromagnetic waves require?

    And what about all the elements in our periodic table, some of which were used to form the lunar lander. What keeps each individual aluminum atom functioning, like miniature perpetual motion machines in the so-called vacuum of space? Does each contain a subatomic battery that never runs down, year after year, eon after eon? Or is each powered by a continuous flow of primordial atoms that circulates from the highest to the lowest dimension and back again, penetrating and powering all physical matter?

    No, that can’t be it, otherwise our super-schmart scientists would’ve discovered it already. Science certainly has its place, and I’m grateful for it, but it also has its limits. Rather than admit these limits, scientists continually promote crackpot theories as truth to explain all they cannot see, measure, or fathom.

    “Recently in the New Zealand parliament, Jacinda Ardern was questioned about $55 million her government gave to media with certain conditions attached about what could be reported on. In Australia, the government waived the usual licence fee for the mainstream media channels back in March 2020. This amounted to around $44 million in subsidies. The theory was that this was needed because covid was expected to reduce advertising revenue, a strange claim given that the whole population was about to be locked at home with every incentive to watch the news. That measure came after the Australian government famously held Facebook and other big tech players to ransom and forced them to pay money to Australian media companies for content. Whatever the ethical dimensions of these issues, what lies beneath is the fact that the media companies are no longer viable businesses capable of existing without government support. Because they are now reliant on government money, their function as the fourth estate that holds government to account has also all but disappeared. That’s a problem for them but it’s also a problem for the government. The “official narrative” is transmitted through the legacy media. If the legacy media goes away, so does the narrative. Governments know that if the media disappeared, so would a large chunk of their power. The government needs the media as much as the media needs the government.”

    Sagan had a knack for being profound. Personally, not offended by it. The nature of Light is fascinating. Maybe this fits better with your understanding.

    Extreme cases of generalized energy conservation in the frame of non-uniform time (whose corollary reveals the nature of gravity) are discussed in detail. The inertial mass is shown to be substantially relative, infinitely growing as the flow of time tends to infinity. The nature of cold dark matter is explained as well as of the cosmic microwave background radiation, which turns out not to be a result of the big bang. Hubble’s law is doubted. A new explanation for hydrogen and helium line broadening in the spectrum of the Sun is adduced as well as the way to solve the Solar neutrino problem. A thermonuclear-free star energy engine hypothesized by Kozyrev is proposed. The problem of the singularity is discarded. The theories of the big bang and black holes are disproved. A unified hypothesis of the nature of pulsars, quasars, and supernovae is proposed. A number of experiments are proposed to prove the theory of time under discussion.
