“..the “neutralizing immunity” provided by Omicron infection extended to the Delta variant..”

Researchers Find Silver Lining In Rise Of Covid Variant Omicron (JTN)

The rapid spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 worldwide “may have positive implications in terms of decreasing the Covid-19 burden of severe disease,” according to a new study funded by the Gates Foundation and South African, U.S. and U.K. government agencies. Led by researchers in South Africa, where the variant was first identified, it’s the latest study to suggest the pandemic is approaching endemic status, calling into question the benefits of strict mitigation policies beyond high-risk groups. The preprint, not yet peer-reviewed, found that the “neutralizing immunity” provided by Omicron infection extended to the Delta variant, which appears to be more “pathogenic” than Omicron and still comprises a substantial proportion of COVID infections in several countries.

It was based on 15 participants, mostly vaccinated, who were tested at a median of four days after symptom onset and again 14 days later. They showed 14.4-fold increased neutralization of subsequent Omicron infection but also 4.4-fold increased neutralization of Delta infection, as determined by antibody response. Two of the original 15 were later excluded because they did not “detectably neutralize Omicron at either timepoint.” The results suggest Omicron infection “may result in decreased ability of Delta to re-infect those individuals,” the researchers wrote. If the new variant is indeed less severe, “the infection may shift to become less disruptive to individuals and society.”

Beyond South African institutions, the 30-odd researchers in the study are affiliated with Columbia University, the University of Washington and Imperial College London. The enhanced immunity to Delta was “especially” strong for vaccinated participants, tweeted lead author Alex Sigal, who is affiliated with the Africa Health Research Institute, University of KwaZulu-Natal and Germany’s Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology.

Very small study.

Early Estimates Of SARS-CoV-2 Omicron Variant Severity (medRxiv)

While it is now evident that Omicron is rapidly replacing Delta, due to a combination of increased transmissibility and immune escape, it is less clear how the severity of Omicron compares to Delta. In Ontario, we sought to examine hospitalization and death associated with Omicron, as compared to matched cases infected with Delta. We conducted a matched cohort study, considering time to hospitalization or death as the outcome, and analyzed with a Cox proportional hazards model. Cases were matched on age, gender, and onset date, while vaccine doses received and time since vaccination were included as adjustment variables.


We identified 6,314 Omicron cases that met eligibility criteria, of which 6,312 could be matched with at least one Delta case (N=8,875) based on age, gender, and onset date. There were 21 (0.3%) hospitalizations and 0 (0%) deaths among matched Omicron cases, compared to 116 (2.2%) hospitalizations and 7 (0.3%) deaths among matched Delta cases. The adjusted risk of hospitalization or death was 54% lower (HR=0.46, 95%CI: 0.27, 0.77) among Omicron cases compared to Delta cases. While severity may be reduced, the absolute number of hospitalizations and impact on the healthcare system could still be significant due to the increased transmissibility of Omicron.

Who wants vaccine induced T cells if natural infection does the trick better?

SARS-CoV-2 Spike T Cell Responses Remain Robust Against Omicron (medRxiv)

The SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant has multiple Spike (S) protein mutations that contribute to escape from the neutralizing antibody responses, and reducing vaccine protection from infection. The extent to which other components of the adaptive response such as T cells may still target Omicron and contribute to protection from severe outcomes is unknown. We assessed the ability of T cells to react with Omicron spike in participants who were vaccinated with Ad26.CoV2.S or BNT162b2, and in unvaccinated convalescent COVID-19 patients (n = 70). We found that 70-80% of the CD4 and CD8 T cell response to spike was maintained across study groups.


Moreover, the magnitude of Omicron cross-reactive T cells was similar to that of the Beta and Delta variants, despite Omicron harbouring considerably more mutations. Additionally, in Omicron-infected hospitalized patients (n = 19), there were comparable T cell responses to ancestral spike, nucleocapsid and membrane proteins to those found in patients hospitalized in previous waves dominated by the ancestral, Beta or Delta variants (n = 49). These results demonstrate that despite Omicron’s extensive mutations and reduced susceptibility to neutralizing antibodies, the majority of T cell response, induced by vaccination or natural infection, cross-recognises the variant. Well-preserved T cell immunity to Omicron is likely to contribute to protection from severe COVID-19, supporting early clinical observations from South Africa.

Fauci Says Fourth Covid Vaccine Shot ‘Conceivable’ For Omicron (NYP)

Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday it’s “conceivable” that a fourth dose of a COVID-19 vaccine will be recommended to protect against the Omicron variant — though more research is needed about how well the current boosters prevent severe disease. “Before we start talking about a fourth shot, it would be very important for us to determine the durability of protection, particularly against severe disease for the third-shot booster of an mRNA [vaccine] and the second shot of a [Johnson & Johnson],” Fauci said at a White House COVID-19 task force press briefing. But Fauci said it’s possible that more protection will be necessary against the variant.


“It is conceivable that in the future, we might need an additional shot, but right now, we are hoping that we will get a greater degree of durability of protection from that booster shot,” Fauci said. “So we’re going to take one step at a time, get the data from the third boost and then make decisions based on scientific data.” Fauci warned that Omicron has been better at evading the immunity provided by vaccines, causing breakthrough infections. But he said that “boosters bring back up that degree of protection to a level that is approximately what it was before.” “So boosters are critical in getting our approach to Omicron to be optimal,” he said.

Up To Three Covid Jabs A Year Could Be Needed For Protection (G.)

Australians may have to receive two or even three Covid jabs each year to maintain defences against the virus if early results on the efficacy of booster shots turn out to be a useful guide. Weekly data published just before Christmas by the UK’s Health Security Agency shows the effectiveness of both the Pfizer and Moderna boosters against symptomatic diseases is lower for the Omicron than the Delta variant across all periods after the injection. The analysis included 147,597 Delta and 68,489 Omicron cases in the UK. The agency stressed the “results should be interpreted with caution due to the low counts and the possible biases related to the populations with highest exposure to Omicron (including travellers and their close contacts) which cannot fully be accounted for”.


The UK data showed both Pfizer and Moderna boosters had 90% effectiveness against symptomatic diseases from the Delta variant up to at least nine weeks. By contrast, efficacy against the Omicron strain was about 30% lower, and appeared to drop away further after nine weeks. Israel has already begun administering a second booster dose to follow the original three-dose treatment, and at least one US medical centre is considering recommending staff have a second booster. Medical experts in Australia said results beyond the 12-week dataset would be needed to get a longer term picture. Jaya Dantas, a professor of international health at Curtin University, said it was still early days for the understanding of the efficacy of the vaccinations but “it appears that there might be a need for regular boosters”. “You might need boosters, say maybe two a year or three a year,” Dantas said, with elderly people more likely to be in line for a triple annual dose.

“..the politics in the USA realizes that this is not going well and they need to shift gears or all be thrown out in the next election.”

CDC Admits PCR Tests are Invalid (Martin Armstrong)

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is finally withdrawing the PCR test for COVID for it is seriously flawed and is incapable of distinguishing between the COVID and influenza viruses. I have stated that I was tested 5 times in 2020 and all were negative only to have two doctors, including the head of pulmonary at the hospital, inform me that they believed I had COVID despite the tests because they were “invalid” and that was back then. Social Media was blocking any discussion about that calling it conspiracy theory and misinformation. This agenda to terrorize the public for political gain has been at the heart of the abuse of politics and media intruding into the medical field. Doctors who have gone along with this terror campaign are a disgrace to their field.

The CDC is withdrawing the COVID PCR Test and the media is not making this front page. The withdraw of the COVID PCR test as valid for detecting and identifying SARS-CoV-2 is critical for all the restrictions and lockdowns. It appears that the collapse in the approval ratings for BIDEN has sent a shock wave through the Democrats as they see their own demise on the horizon. They are now back-peddling in hopes of surviving the 2022 elections. The CDC has stated on its website: “After December 31, 2021, CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the assay first introduced in February 2020 for detection of SARS-CoV-2 only.”

The CDC has finally admitted that the PCR test cannot even differentiate between SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. As I was told personally that the test was invalid, the politics in the USA realizes that this is not going well and they need to shift gears or all be thrown out in the next election.

“..because PCR tests can stay positive for up to 12 weeks..”

Why CDC Doesn’t Require Testing At End Of Isolation (ABC)

The newly updated CDC guidelines don’t require testing at the end of isolation because PCR tests can stay positive for up to 12 weeks, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told “Good Morning America” Wednesday. “So we would have people in isolation for a very long time if we were relying on PCRs,” Walensky said. Walensky also addressed Tuesday’s news from the FDA that, according to early data, rapid antigen tests may be less sensitive when it comes to the omicron variant.


“We do know that the most sensitive test you can do is a PCR test,” Walensky said. “So if you have symptoms and you have a negative antigen test, we do ask you to go and get a PCR to make sure those symptoms are not attributable to COVID.” Walensky said rapid tests do work “quite well,” especially in places where people are being tested regularly, like at schools. “They may not work as well as they have for the delta variant,” Walensky said, but “we still are encouraging their use.”

“Over a half million followers gone in a blink of an eye..”

I think maybe Malone got banned because he’s about to go on Joe Rogan. Whose interview with Peter McCullough was the most popular one he did at 40 million listeners.

Twitter Bans Robert Malone. His Response: ‘Constant Clown Show’ (JTN)

A social media purge may be accelerating against reporting and commentary perceived at odds with conventional storylines on COVID-19. Twitter permanently suspended mRNA vaccine pioneer-turned-critic Robert Malone’s account Wednesday for “spreading misleading and potentially harmful information” about the novel coronavirus, according to a notice Malone shared with Just the News. [..] Malone’s only previous sanction was a 12-hour suspension for “posting something with a commercial intent (near as I could tell),” Malone said. He has also received complaints about his tweets required by “German law” over the past year. But he suspects his “big sin” was sharing the Canadian Covid Care Alliance’s analysis of Pfizer’s “adverse event reports” from the first six months of its COVID vaccine’s emergency use authorization.

In a Substack essay Wednesday, posted before his account went down, Malone characterized that analysis as showing the “inoculations cause more illness than they prevent” – a claim at odds with mainstream scientific opinion. France-owned newswire service AFP countered the Canadian Covid Care Alliance’s claims several months ago and similar claims earlier this month, arguing the Pfizer data had been misconstrued. It quoted a Pfizer spokesperson who said the causes of the 1,223 fatalities among 158,893 adverse effects had not been verified, and reflect “spontaneous” reports from sources in several countries. An FDA spokesperson said “the vast majority of the deaths reported are not directly attributable to the vaccines.”[..]

The last archive of Malone’s Twitter page Wednesday afternoon doesn’t show him promoting the analysis. But his final tweets linked to a British Medical Journal investigation into “data integrity issues in Pfizer’s vaccine trial” and a related interview. He also claimed the World Economic Forum had published a “roadmap” for “managing us,” citing WEF’s “Transformation Map” on peace and resilience. “This is the face of global information control and warfare,” he told Just the News, referring to the map. “It’s not just Twitter.” Malone announced his suspension on Substack and encouraged readers to sign up for his newsletter. “Over a half million followers gone in a blink of an eye,” he wrote, referring to his Twitter audience. “That means I must have been on the mark, so to speak.”

Created less than a month ago to share “deeper” essays and research, the newsletter had 35,000 subscribers Wednesday morning, he told Just the News. It “just exploded” after Twitter deplatformed him later in the day. A much larger audience will get to hear from Malone soon. He’s scheduled to go on Joe Rogan’s podcast, by some measures the most popular in America.

Joe Rogan’s Sold Out Show Canceled Due To Vaccine Mandates (Hill)

Joe Rogan’s sold out Vancouver show, scheduled for April 20, has been canceled after the podcast host said he likely would be unable to enter Canada from the U.S., where he lives, because he is not vaccinated against COVID-19. In a Dec. 24 episode of his podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Rogan told his guest, comedian Tim Dillon, that Rogan’s springtime show in Vancouver was likely to be canceled because of COVID-19 restrictions in British Columbia. The Canadian territory requires proof of vaccination to gain entry into some indoor businesses and event spaces, including Rogers Arena, where Rogan’s show was set to take place.


“I should probably say this because I haven’t yet. My 4/20 show that’s sold out in Vancouver — I don’t think that’s happening,” Rogan said. “I don’t think I can even get into the country. I’m not vaccinated. I’m not gonna get vaccinated. I have antibodies, it doesn’t make any sense.” Rogan announced in an Instagram post in early September that he had been diagnosed with COVID-19 after running a high fever and said he had been taking a mix of medications, including monoclonal antibody treatments, Z-Pak, the anti-inflammatory drug prednisone and the antiparasitic ivermectin, which the FDA has said is not recommended for treating COVID-19.

“It is outrageous and unfair that a story that is completely accurate and points out an important legal distinction between the two versions of vaccines gets blocked and my account suspended..”

Twitter Suspends John Solomon For Report On Covid Vaccines (JTN)

Twitter suspended the account of Just the News founder John Solomon for sharing an article about the legal distinctions between Pfizer’s fully approved and emergency use authorization (EUA) COVID-19 vaccines, which could affect the legality of vaccine mandates. The social media company is also warning users who click the link to the article from individual tweets that it “may be unsafe” and “could lead to real-world harm.” An immunologist who reviewed the article told Just the News he saw nothing wrong with it factually. Solomon’s Dec. 27 tweet shared the link and headline: “Pfizer to continue distributing version of COVID-19 vaccine not fully approved by FDA.”

The report noted that Pfizer and several experts have claimed that the fully approved Comirnaty vaccine has the same ingredients and manufacturing process as the EUA vaccine, known as Pfizer-BioNTech. But it also cited the FDA’s acknowledgment that the two are “legally distinct” owing to more stringent requirements for the Comirnaty vaccine, whose biologics license application (BLA) was approved. In a legal challenge to the U.S. military’s vaccine mandate, a federal judge ruled in November that “FDA licensure does not retroactively apply to [EUA vaccine] vials shipped before BLA approval.” U.S. District Judge Allen Winsor cited DOD guidance that limits mandates to fully approved vaccines, which must be “produced at approved facilities.”

“It is outrageous and unfair that a story that is completely accurate and points out an important legal distinction between the two versions of vaccines gets blocked and my account suspended,” Solomon told Just the News. “The distinction was important enough for a federal judge to note. The story and my post weren’t unsafe,” he said. “The only threat is to the safety of the 1st Amendment afflicted by Twitter’s wrongheaded decision.” [..] According to the notice Solomon received, Twitter “temporarily limited” his account features for 12 hours because the tweet violates its policy on “spreading misleading and potentially harmful information” related to COVID.

There Remains No FDA Approved Covid Vaccine In The US (Schachtel)

Is Pfizer refusing to make the fully authorized version available, while continuing to sell an EUA product because doing so could open up Pfizer and BioNTech to legal liability issues? Pfizer and an HHS spokesperson talked to The Washington Post in a previous “fact check,” and claimed that there’s no additional legal immunity benefits between the EUA product and Comirnaty. However, these entities have never explained why Pfizer and the federal government would go through the trouble of recognizing two legally distinct products. An EUA fully protects the drugmaker and grants zero legal recourse to the patient. This surefire protection measure was bolstered by the PREP act and other measures implemented to shield COVID companies from liability. Now, here’s where it all gets very nefarious.

Due to a law passed during the Reagan Administration, in order for drug makers to be granted more robust legal liability protection for their vaccines, they must first secure full approval for the children’s version of their shot. Steve Kirsch has explained this at length last month on his Substack. Additionally, Robert Kennedy Jr mentioned it on a recent podcast with Mikhaila Peterson. I looked into these claims extensively, and they appear accurate. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), which was passed into law in 1986, provides a legal liability shield to drug manufacturers if they receive full authorization for all ages. Is Pfizer seeking approval for children so that it can protect itself from lawsuits? The company is working with regulators, even clandestinely altering vaccine ingredients (a process that should require them to get full approval for an entirely separate product), in a seeming bid to clear the path to legal indemnity.

Surely, there’s also a monetary incentive in play, but maybe there’s another reason why Pfizer, Moderna, and others are working relentlessly to authorize their products for children, who face near-zero risk from COVID-19, but continue to showcase alarming side effects from the vaccine. A vaccine on the children’s schedule provides a definitive, government-incentivized liability boost. If Comirnaty becomes available for all ages, that means Pfizer receives an extensive, additional layer of protection. Is Big Pharma using children as legal human shields for their products?

RFK: If a vaccine is introduced under EUA, the maker can’t be sued. When it IS approved, they can be sued. Unless they can get it recommended for children. That’s why 5 year olds are being jabbed.

Ladapo: Biden Admin ‘Actively Preventing’ Monoclonal Antibody Treatments (Fox)

Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo accused the Biden administration of “actively preventing the effective distribution of monoclonal antibody treatments” in the United States, according to a Tuesday letter addressed to Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra.The Biden administration recently paused shipments of COVID-19 antibody treatments manufactured by major drug companies Regeneron and Eli Lilly amid claims that such treatments are not effective against the omicron variant of the coronavirus. The federal government continues to supply Sotrovimab, a monoclonal antibody from the company Glaxosmithkline, which reportedly does work against omicron. Ladapo concluded his letter by referencing comments Biden made Monday that there wasn’t a solution by the federal government to end the nearly two-year-old pandemic.


“There is no federal solution. This gets solved at the state level,” Biden said at the time in response to Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson warning the president against letting “federal solutions stand in the way of state solutions.” A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) pushed back against Ladapo’s assertion, telling Fox News Digital in a statement: “The federal government has and will continue to supply Florida with treatments that can help improve patient outcomes, reduce stress on healthcare facilities, and save lives. We have never stopped allocating or shipping COVID-19 therapeutics to Florida. “With regard to monoclonal antibody treatments, the federal government has allocated about 22,000 doses in just the past two weeks (11,050 doses last week and 10,576 doses this week). That’s in addition to the approximately 28,000 doses of product that they have on hand from their previous orders,” the statement continued.

“He claims not to be Nakamoto, but I’m not sure that’s neither here nor there.”

Musk Thinks He Solved Bitcoin’s Greatest Mystery (RT)

The true identity of Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto, who has been one of the financial world’s enduring mysteries, is still unknown. However, Elon Musk says he might have the answer. Musk says hyper-secretive cryptocurrency expert Nick Szabo might be the creator of the world’s most popular cryptocurrency. “You can look at the evolution of ideas before the launch of Bitcoin and see who wrote about those ideas,” Musk told artificial-intelligence researcher Lex Fridman in a podcast on Tuesday. The Tesla CEO also denied the allegations that he could be Satoshi, stating he would not hide it if he were. Musk said while he “obviously” doesn’t know exactly who created Bitcoin, Szabo’s theories seem fundamental to the creation of the world’s leading cryptocurrency.


“It seems as though Nick Szabo is probably, more than anyone else, responsible for the evolution of those ideas,” he said. “He claims not to be Nakamoto, but I’m not sure that’s neither here nor there. But he seems to be the one more responsible for the ideas behind Bitcoin than anyone else. In 2014, a team of researchers studied Nakamoto’s Bitcoin whitepaper alongside the writing of Szabo and 10 other potential creators. “The number of linguistic similarities between Szabo’s writing and the Bitcoin whitepaper is uncanny,” they said, adding that “none of the other possible authors were anywhere near as good of a match.” Before Bitcoin debuted in 2008, Szabo was seen commenting on his blog about his “intent to create a living version of the hypothetical currency.” He had developed a digital money mechanism known as Szabo Bit Gold between 1998 and 2005.

Why Assange Fears Being “Epsteined” (Mercer)

If America’s so free and fair, why is Julian Assange, innocent in natural law, so terrified of being extradited to the USA? And why must journalist Glenn Greenwald live abroad, after heroically helping whistleblower Edward Snowden, now safely ensconced in Russia? American heroes living abroad for fear of the American Security State? Time perhaps to shut up about China? In 2010, Snowden had shared internal NSA documents with Mr. Greenwald, the guardian of American freedoms at the British Guardian newspaper. Facilitated by Greenwald, Snowden divulged that the National Security Agency boasted of having “direct access to the systems of Google, Facebook, Apple, Yahoo, PalTalk, YouTube in 2010; Skype and AOL, and other servers.”

It transpired that, contrary to what you’d been told by officials under oath, “the world’s largest surveillance organization” can and does “obtain targeted communications without having to request them from the service providers and without having to obtain individual court orders.” This is contrary to the Bill of Rights, and the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, in particular, which specifies that “warrants shall issue” only “upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” The federal authorities routinely collect data on phone calls Americans make, regardless of whether they have any bearing on a counterterrorism investigation. Tellingly, the tools of Big Media and Big Government had not apprised you of these facts.

It took Snowden to come forth, in his words, “to reveal the criminality.” In Snowden’s poignant words, “You can’t wait around for someone else to act. I had been looking for leaders, but I realized that leadership is about being the first to act. … I’m neither traitor nor hero. I’m an American,” he summed-up so simply. “Thank you for your service,” Mr. Snowden. For his part, a decade before he was broken, an insouciant Assange told the New Yorker that “a social movement to expose secrets could bring down many administrations that rely on concealing reality — including the US administration.” A naïve Assange had vowed to skewer “lying, corrupt and murderous leadership from Bahrain to Brazil.”

With its many epic “data dumps,” Assange’s WikiLeaks enlightened and educated, providing definitive proof that the mass media are lapdogs, not watchdogs. Democratic lapdogs. The colluding quislings of the major American networks and newspapers had actively worked to elect Mrs. Clinton. Thanks to WikiLeaks, Americans also learned of the contempt with which these Democrats hold them. [..] Well, America has jurisdiction over Assange because it has simply asserted it based on trumped-up charges equating his journalism with espionage. Which is why Assange now fears being “Epsteined.”

    “After Thousands of Parents Refused to Comply, California School District Reverses Child Jab Mandate”

    Scienz! Too bad they weren’t part of a Union, or Congress, then they’d have been exempt all along.

    “State law, which says any decision to mandate vaccines must be made at the state level and must also include a “personal belief exemption” if the mandate is not imposed by the state Legislature.”

    Uh, that would be not a “mandate” if you can opt out ‘cuz you don’t “personally believe” in opting in. Also, yeah, still waiting for the first day they pass a “Law”. See how they’re going around government altogether, co-opting think tank “Advisors” run by MultiNational Corporations? That’s their new model. NO GOVERNMENT. Only FaceBook and Alphabet Agency. (they so ha ha funny)

    But also, the minions who run China are the guys planning and enacting all this – same team – so hilariously they think anyone in America will do ANYTHING they’re told. Um, no, by the very act of telling us, we will then NOT do it, just to piss you off. Let’s Go Briden. It’s hilarious, one of the few lights in the dim, sad life you’ve given us in your stupid, losing war. They told us to give up guns and Bibles, vote for Hillary, stop complaining about shipping jobs to China, CEO pay, suck it up to Wall Street, to hate Trump, to also hate everyone who’s not Trump, to hate ourselves, to not have children, to kill our children, to not care about our children, to sit in our houses and wait to die, and so on.

    Not working very well. “Upstate” is in the non-city part of a blue state, how’s the compliance even there, supposedly the land of the deep, deep blue? My guess as all the Red counties said they didn’t give a s—t what the Governor said, “Outlook not so good.” They also were “legally” required to register their guns in contradiction to both Federal AND State Constitutions. They had ZERO compliance. And that’s in major BLUE areas.

    So yeah, history of American compliance isn’t great. And that’s what makes us great.

    Here’s an idea: come make me. You police, mayors, politicians, lawyers, bankers, never followed the law in your sad, sorry lives. Why should I? Come make me ‘cause I won’t. If you look away I’ll stop again. You wanted slaves? This is how slaves act.

    So people are fleeing the Blue states by millions, as Libertarians not willing to shoot their neighbors to stop them, these criminals and their illegal edicts. And isn’t that good? But that’s the point and plan: expel religious dissidents, leave the obedient, destroy the area, lower the property values, and let billionaires and Chinese buy them up, take them over and then secede from the Union to make trouble for us. Duh.

    Their weirdo cult minion behavior, regimented and robotic, anti-human, anti-humor, is illustrated in North Korean responses like this: “Watch: MSNBC Host Claims Phrase ‘Lets Go Brandon’ Is Part Of A “Slow-Moving Insurrection”

    Saying words we don’t prefer…in a joke, is the same as a general taking an army and shooting everyone. Well the NYTimes did say they loved North Korea and wished most earnestly to imitate them.

    “Aaron Rodgers: Science That “Can’t Be Questioned” Is “Propaganda”

    So Science – real Science – is revolutionary too. It’s meant to upturn previous beliefs. But that means existing beliefs must be questioned, with evidence.

    “CDC Admits PCR Tests Are Invalid (Martin Armstrong)”

    Yes, but they knew this immediately (obvious by the numbers vs effects) but admitted it in …June? Yes, then knowing it was completely wrong but driving public policy, continued a totally wrong test, and all the ensuing wrong, wrong medical responses because of it, for 6 more months. ‘Cause, Scienz! When we know our measurements are wrong we just keep taking them and believing them.

    Who can stand in the way / When there’s a dollar to be made?” –Midnight Oil

    “CDC Director Walensky on the reduction of quarantine: “It really had a lot to do with what we thought people would be able to tolerate.”

    Thus Science: it’s whatever we can get some idiots to swallow. Mailmen don’t transmit Covid; they’re in a Union!

    Lock them in the pillory and spank them relentlessly ‘til they learn their lesson. Clearly nothing else will do. Btw, make them felons – which I’m quite sure they’re guilty of – and they will be unable to re-join Medical or Scientific life and institutions.

    Felons as CEOs of Cigna and Aetna? Head of Boston Hospital and John’s Hopkins? I don’t think so. So…they’re guilty: arrest them and end the problem. Did you not know having murdering, thieving felons run major institutions might cause trouble?

    Here’s an example:

    CEO makes $10mil. Say lower workers make $40k. 30:1 ratio in Japan which if you get paid more is just embarrassing and causes trouble. Which is $1.2 Million. Leaving $8.8 Million to spare. $8.8 / Say $60k/yr nurses get = 146 new nurses in that hospital. Oh noes! We have a shortage! Hospitals muh overrun! All because all the money for nurses is in my new have-yacht! Whatever shall we do? I’ve got an idea: let’s have the CDC tell them to work with Covid! And say they’re all lazy, stupid people and it’s their fault! Problem solved.

    It’s always the fault of the poor or powerless. Always.

    Now that may be outsized example, but let’s say they make $5M. BUT ALL THE BOARD ALSO MAKE EMBARRASSING MONEY. Fauci does, highest paid in the (non) government. Even sub-sub admins to the sub-vice President of surgical tubes does. 6-figures. Add it up and you have hundreds of nurses per hospital, hundreds of beds, while they’re calling “Crisis!” “Overrun!” We’ve been overrun every since (e.g. Cuomo) closed 1/3 of all beds and every other (rural) hospital in the State like the insurers paid him to. However do we not have beds? Can’t figure it out!

    Okay, now apply to RoundUp, farming, environment, forests, fish, oceans, poverty, housing, and everything else.

    • CDC Admits PCR Tests are Invalid (Martin Armstrong)

    Armstrong seems to be reading too much into what the CDC said. The only PCR test being withdrawn is the one that was previously distributed by the CDC, called “the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel.” The CDC started distributing this one in early 2020. There are other brands of RT-PCR tests that are still authorized, available, and not being withdrawn.

    Does the retirement of this test apply to all RT-PCR-based tests or all SARS-CoV-2 tests that have received Emergency Use Authorization from FDA?

    No. The discontinuation of Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) only applies to the CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel test.

    RIM: “Do we know why they withdrew this particular one?”

    According to the CDC, their CDC PCR test was the first one available to fill an unmet need in 2020; there are many others available now; and the CDC is retiring this CDC PCR test to focus their resources elsewhere.

    Why is CDC retiring the CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel?

    CDC is retiring the CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized hundreds of other SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic tests, many of which are now higher throughput or can test for more than one illness at a time. At the time CDC deployed the 2019-nCoV Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, there were no other FDA-authorized methods available within the United States.

    CDC began distributing the CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCOV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel to fill a gap. The wide availability of other SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic tests means that the CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel is no longer filling an unmet need. Retiring the CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel will allow CDC to focus its resources on public health surveillance testing and other response activities.

    So yeah, history of American compliance isn’t great. And that’s what makes us great. Compliance is what makes Australians less than great. It’s double edged because – backing on to a giant desert we intrinsically have a deep version of ‘don’t go it alone’ – cos it will actually kill you and actually has – even hugely over-supplied teams of ‘explorers’ here just; died.
    So the social group and getting along is vry important here but all good strengths can be weaknesses. Me I talk too much – open, honest and liked but also butt in (mild adhd or sommit).
    America will need to rebound from that all-important self-determination aspect into cohesive collectives when the dust settles after the fourth tuning turns. But as Herr Docktor knows only too well – if left well enough alone by power hungry assholes people can sort themselves out pretty well.
    I really wish Bill Mollison was alive for this epoch – the man didn’t take no shit and is our best American-hearted Australian. Holmgren thankfully has a tonne of mettle but is being attacked left right and centre in our local media for his non-compliance.

    My local paper has in the opinion section a letter I intended to have rebuked which character-assassinates David. I have since realised that if we defend ourselves in that way we are telling ourselves we are being attacked rather than admitting that people are afraid and need our tolerance and compassion.

    It is amazing this omicron version showed up, in summertime S.Africa, with the same symptoms as the common head cold, at exactly the same time it normally breaks out in the N. hemisphere, with the same degree of virulence. Probably coincidence – no? The common head cold has been hijacked by the Italian version of Dr. Faustus and his NIH. My Solstice +4 comment was directly based upon a video clip of Dr. Fraud ordering cancellation of the holiday with one’s family – fear, fear, fear for the sheeple.
    Then in retrospect, a variant found in India was also hijacked, rebranded with a ‘D – Delta’ conveniently timed to cover statistics threatening to reveal ADE to the vaxx, with just the right virulence and infectivity to match and cover the Covid-19 Vaxx failures.
    Was it only happenstance the avoidance, the degradation of, the deceits with statistic records all in relation with Covid-19 became apparent or was this also required to befuddle the public?

    “Dutch goverment wants 3rd jab in January, 2 more in 2022, and then no. 6 in 2023. How many people will comply?”

    Good question. Everyone around me is jabbed. I know people who couldn’t wait to get the booster and there were loads of people going to Germany to get their boosters because the roll-out here was going to take too long. Among the young, though, there seems to be a lot of resistance to getting the next shot. They’ve been lied to and they know it, they were promised they would get their freedoms back and they didn’t, so what’s the point in complying? My own daughters and their boyfriends don’t see any good reason to get boosted. The government is hell bent on getting the vaccine passports/digital ID wallet/social credit system rolled out and they don’t care how many bodies pile up (we’re on 25% excess mortality for the last four or five months and so the total number of excess non-covid dead is now about equal to the official number of covid dead) in order to put that in place.

    It makes no sense to me to say that a PCR test cannot distinguish a coronavirus from an influenza virus. The test is all about gene sequences, and the gene sequence of a coronavirus does not look anything like a gene sequence of influenza. We are talking about gene sequences, not visual appearance. To the uninformed, the Japanese language might be mistaken for Korean. But to anyone with the slightest degree of familiarity, these are completely different. Even complete gibberish in Korean can never be mistaken for Japanese and vice versa. This idea that PCR sequencing cannot distinguish between these two virus makes no sense at all. It is an incomprehensible argument.

    I was being pressured to be boosted by well-meaning friends, so I responded with data from the CDC’s website on this very issue: cancellation of PCR tests.

    Appreciate Doc Rob’s clarification that we’ll still have PCR tests, but tests that are more accurate. I’m glad we seem to be learning and putting said learning to practical use.

    However, it logically then follows that previous numbers, determined by the “outdated” PCR were inflated. Clearly. Logic doesn’t allow for another option, it seems to me.

    So my friend’s grandfather who died last year of a heart attack, while (old) PCR test positive for covid, might actually have died of a heart attack WITH influenza, not necessarily WITH covid.

    Boogaloo: “It makes no sense to me to say that a PCR test cannot distinguish a coronavirus from an influenza virus.”

    The CDC dropped an earlier PCR test, but it’s currently pushing a PCR test that “can simultaneously detect and differentiate SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A, and Influenza B with one test.”

    CDC is recommending that laboratories that routinely conduct influenza testing as well as COVID-19 testing, such as public health laboratories, consider transitioning to a test that can generate a result for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2, rather than running separate tests for each virus. The CDC Influenza SARS-CoV-2 (Flu SC2) Multiplex Assay, one such assay available to public health laboratories, can simultaneously detect and differentiate SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A, and Influenza B with one test. It is a more resource-efficient way for public health laboratories to meet influenza and SARS-CoV-2 surveillance goals.

    Thank you Boogaloo and Doc Robinson for the PCR test clarifications.

    Yes, I think Mr. Armstrong is reading too much into the CDC testing and PCR tests as well as conflating antigen tests and PCR tests, so I don’t recommend that post.

    My understanding – The Covid PCR tests are designed to detect (any bit) of SARS-COV2 virus RNA. So they cannot, by design, mistakenly identify an influenza virus for the SARS-COV2 virus.

    It may be that CDC decided to renew the focus of their resources into the development of this newer PCR test that “can simultaneously detect and differentiate SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A, and Influenza B with one test.” Hence, the EUA removal for the first PCR test that they rolled out.

    Thanks. I spent a lot of time resting in bed Monday and Tuesday, completely ok with resting and meditating peacefully with my headache.
    Monday I woke up with bronchial irritation, and the typical mild COVID symptoms progressed. I took zinc, quercetin and lecithin, along with my usual vitamin-D and 81 mg aspirin, and a boost of vitamin-D. I improved some by the next morning, but not as much as I wanted, so I took 0.4 mg/kg of ivermectin, the dose the FLCCC folks are now advising, twice the usual dose for parasites. By mid afternoon I felt much better. I did continue everything else.
    By yesterday (Wednesday) morning I awoke feeling pretty close to normal, and took that same dose of ivermectin again. I had a pretty normal busy day yesterday, driving to Yoakum to deal with house construction, electrical wiring and inspection. I masked, talked outdoors, told everybody that I was recovering on ivermectin-based treatment and did not want to infect them. Jenny and I walked for 1.3 miles when I got home, both of us feeling good. I had no fever at all and only a lisght headache at bedtime, which resolved without Tylenol.
    I am continuing treatment, and stepping down my ivermectin dose to about .25 mg/kg per day for 3 more doses. I never did begin an antibiotic in this stepwise progression of adding treatments, so no doxycycline or azithromycin. I did so well so quickly without it, that I considered it not necessary in my case.
    Likewise, Jenny did so well with ivermectin-only post exposure prophylaxis, starting a few hours after exposure, that she also is taking ivermectin, zinc, quercetin and lecithin. She has felt normal for a couple of days now.
    Your mileage may vary. We were in a unique position to begin things very early. We knew the initial exposure she had to her family members.
    Having your preparations made, as per this post from last week is prudent: https://www.johndayblog.com/2021/12/otc-covid-rxs-for-omicron.html

    Thanks Eleni. ‘Uncovering the Corona Narrative’ by the German author and journalist Ernst Wolff
    This is very well written and not brief, so I will encapsulate.​
    The COVID pandemic is being used as a tool to bring about a specific change in the global economic system, which supports the digital-electronic information network.
    The financial system is failing, which is inevitable, and the electronic information network is relied on in all aspects of human communication, commerce and endeavor.
    Maintaining support of the digital information system requires a replacement financial system. The WEF proposes global central bank digital currency, which central bankers will control at will.
    This will be initiated in a crisis through UBI,universal basic income, through smart-pohnes. Electronic money will soon be the only form of money..
    ​This money will control all who use it. They might receive and might have it removed from them, or restricted for any reason.
    People could be excluded from economy and travel easily.
    Individual initiative would only be permitted as it served this global centralized system.​
    Individual threats could be eliminated through economic shunning, or apprehended in ;erson, based upon their location coordinates.
    I will point out that this system sustains an expensive upper layer of cost, the extraction of profits at the top by bankers and other financial capitalists.
    That cost is paid by the vast majority of humans, who will live in subservience and own nothing”.
    I see that the COVID-emergency narrative is weakening. Official pronouncements about Omicron are intentionally vague and open to multiple interpretations this week. This tells me that the COVID-Emergency control-narrative is breaking, and there is unease about what to say now, and how it will look next month. We need to press hard and continuously and openly for a more human and cooperative “crowd-sourced” solution to the end of growth-economy.

    2021’s top posts: The master plan behind the Covid crisis

    Ellen Brown presents an alternative strategy to support the electronic information infrastructure, without micromanaging every human to death. Huge loans, for extraction of wealth through financial attacks on productive companies, need to stop, to support the real economy. Small to medium company loans and personal loans, for economically constructive enterprises need to be increased. Bankers and bank employees should not be rewarded for extracting wealth, and should get ordinary pay. The Bank of North Dakota and German community banking practices are instructive.
    Ms. Brown advocates less extraction, more local control, and incentivization of low cost loans to real-economy enterprises, letting speculative financial capitalism wane and wither on the vine.
    ​ …Small companies account for 64 percent of new U.S. jobs; yet in most U.S. manufacturing sectors, productivity growth is substantially below the standards set by Germany, and many U.S. SMEs are not productive enough to compete with the cost advantages of Chinese and other low-wage competitors. Why?
    ​ ​Werner observes that Germany exports nearly as much as China does, although the German population is a mere 6% of China’s. The Chinese also have low-wage advantages. How can German small firms compete when U.S. firms cannot? Werner credits Germany’s 1,500 not-for-profit/community banks, the largest number in the world. Seventy percent of German deposits are with these local banks – 26.6% with cooperative banks and 42.9% with publicly-owned savings banks called Sparkassen, which are legally limited to lending in their own communities. Together these local banks do over 90% of SME lending. Germany has more than ten times as many banks engaged in SME lending as the UK, and German SMEs are world market leaders in many industries.
    ​ ​Small banks lend to small companies, while large banks lend to large companies – and to large-scale financial speculators. German community banks were not affected by the 2008 crisis, says Werner, so they were able to increase SME lending after 2008; and as a result, there was no German recession and no increase in unemployment.
    ​ ​China’s success, too, Werner attributes to its large network of community banks. Under Mao, China had a single centralized national banking system. In 1982, guided by Deng Xiaoping, China reformed its money system and introduced thousands of commercial banks, including hundreds of cooperative banks. Decades of double-digit growth followed. “Window guidance” was also used: harmful bank credit creation for asset transactions and consumption were suppressed, while productive credit was encouraged.
    ​ ​Werner’s recommendations for today’s economic conditions are to reform the money system by: banning bank credit for transactions that don’t contribute to GDP; creating a network of many small community banks lending for productive purposes, returning all gains to the community; and making bank behavior transparent, accountable and sustainable. He is chairman of the board of Hampshire Community Bank, launched just this year, which lays out the model. It includes no bonus payments to staff, only ordinary modest salaries; credit advanced mainly to SMEs and for housing construction (buy-to-build mortgages); and ownership by a local charity for the benefit of the people in the county, with half the votes in the hands of the local authorities and universities that are its investors.​..
    [Municipal bond defaults can be avoided, also.]​ ​All of this could be done without new legislation. The Federal Reserve has statutory authority under the Federal Reserve Act to lend to municipal borrowers for a period of up to six months. It could just agree to roll over these loans for a fixed period of years. Bhatti and Alston observe that under the 2020 CARES Act, the Fed was given permission to make up to $500 billion in indefinite, long-term loans to municipal borrowers, but it failed to act on that authority to the extent allowed. Loans were limited to no more than three years, and the interest rate charged was so high that most municipal borrowers could get lower rates on the open municipal bond market.​..
    [The crisis which would “necessitate” the emergency imposition of global central bank digital currency by financial elites and central bankers can be avoided.]
    ​ ​Playing with matches that could trigger a $30 trillion debt bomb is obviously something the Fed should try to avoid. Prof. Werner would probably argue that its policy mistake, like Japan’s in the 1980s, has been to inject credit so that it has gone into speculative assets, inflating asset prices. The Fed’s liquidity fire hose needs to be directed at local production. This can be done through local community or public banks, or by making near-zero interest loans to state and local governments, perhaps mediated through a National Infrastructure Bank.

    Here’s Dr. Robert Malone’s latest Gab post about the removal of monoclonal antibody treatments thanks to bad CDC modeling.

    “So, we all know that Delta still prevails – yet The Daily Mail doesn’t? The Daily Mail doesn’t know about the faulty projections regarding Omicron that the CDC did in December? Hard to believe!
    The point, the main point is that the CDC did a bunch of bad modelling about percent of Omicron in the US population. Decided earlier in December that Omicron was dominant and pulled most of the Monoclonal Abs and told hospitals to get rid of them, as they “wouldn’t work”.
    Then guess what? The projections were wrong. So, no drugs are available for patients. This is not “good” public policy. This was not based on “good” science. This is gross negligence. People, many people have died are dying because of this “mistake’. So, who is going to step up and take responsibility?”

    The stats for Europe’s excess mortality were updated today, and since the end of November, the weekly excess deaths for all age groups have been plummeting. For the cumulated overall year, it looks like 2021 will have less excess deaths than 2020 for all age groups combined. However, when comparing 2021 to 2020 for each age group, the cumulated excess deaths are only lower for the 75-and-older age groups. For every age group under 75, there were more excess deaths (significant increases) in 2021 than in 2020.

    That’s my guess. In 2021, the decreased mortality of the 75+ group offsets the increased mortality of the under-75 group, to give an overall decline in excess mortality (for all age groups combined). Looking at all age groups combined like this can be misleading (as in claims that the vaccines lowered excess mortality in 2021), because all the under-75 age groups had significant increases in excess mortality (despite the all-ages excess deaths for the year being lower.)

    No. The CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel was specifically designed to only detect SARS-CoV-2 viral genetic material. It does not detect influenza or differentiate between influenza and SARS-CoV-2. The presence of influenza viral genetic material within a specimen will not cause a false positive result.

    There are other multianalyte tests available, including the CDC Influenza SARS-CoV-2 Multiplex Assay,  that can simultaneously detect and differentiate Influenza A, Influenza B, and SARS-CoV-2.

    Does the CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel confuse influenza with SARS-CoV-2?

    No. The CDC 2019-nCoV Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel does not confuse influenza with SARS-CoV-2. It is a highly accurate test that detects the presence or absence of SARS-CoV-2 viral genetic material within a patient specimen.
