Omicron Made €9bn In Week For Top Pfizer And Moderna Shareholders (BN.ie)

The discovery of the Omicron coronavirus variant caused the wealth of eight top Pfizer and Moderna shareholders to skyrocket by a combined €9 billion ($10.31 billion) in one week, according to campaigners. The campaigners from Global Justice Now said pharmaceutical executives are “making a killing from a crisis they helped to create”, with vaccine inequality helping to create the conditions for the Omicron variant to emerge. Moderna’s shares skyrocketed after the announcement of the variant and settled at $310.61 per share on December 1st, up 13.61 per cent from the previous Wednesday. Pfizer’s shares rose by 7.41 per cent from $50.91 per share to $54.68 per share. Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel personally became more than $824 million richer in the week after the announcement of the variant, Global Justice Now said.

With the value of his shares rising from $6,052,522,978 to $6,876,528,630, he sold off 10,000 shares for $319 each on November 26th, the day after the variant was announced, cashing out $3.19 million. Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla meanwhile made $339,236 in the week after the announcement of the variant, campaigners said, with his smaller portfolio rising from $4,581,035 to $4,920,270. Institutional investors also saw increased wealth, with Blackrock Inc’s Moderna and Pfizer shares increasing by more than $2.5 billion in the week after the announcement. Vanguard Group made a combined $2.7 billion; Moderna shareholders Baillie Gifford & Co increased by $1.6 billion; Morgan Stanley increased by $447 million; Flagship pioneering increased by $654 million; Pfizer investors State Street went up $1 billion; and Capital World gained $909 million.

Tim Bierley, pharma campaigner at Global Justice Now, said pharmaceutical companies “knew that grotesque levels of vaccine inequality would create prime conditions for new variants to emerge.” “They let Covid-19 spread unabated in low and middle-income countries. And now the same pharma execs and shareholders are making a killing from a crisis they helped to create. It’s utterly obscene,” he said.

We May Be Sterilizing an Entire Generation – Toxicologist (Mercola)

Janci Chunn Lindsay, Ph.D., is a molecular biologist and toxicologist and director of toxicology and molecular biology for Toxicology Support Services LLC. April 23, 2021, she delivered a three-minute public comment to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). Her expertise is analysis of pharmacological dose-responses, mechanistic biology and complex toxicity dynamics. In her ACIP comment, Lindsay described how she aided the development of a contraceptive vaccine in the 1990s that ended up causing unintended autoimmune destruction and sterility in animals which, despite careful pre-analysis, had not been predicted.

She explains: “We were developing what was meant to be a temporary contraceptive vaccine, which was very attractive because it prevented fertilization rather than preventing implantation — or it should have; that was the idea. Unfortunately, even though quite a bit of analysis was done in different animal models to make sure that it did not have an autoimmune action, it did end up having an autoimmune action and caused complete ovarian destruction. Now it’s used in that manner [for permanent sterilization] in dogs, cats and other animals. So, that’s a cautionary tale of how animal studies can help us avoid mistakes in humans when they’re used properly, and when proper animal studies are done.”

We May Be Sterilizing an Entire Generation At the time, she called for an immediate halt to COVID-19 mRNA and DNA vaccines due to safety concerns on multiple fronts. In particular, she noted there is credible concern that they will cross-react with syncytin (a retroviral envelope protein) and reproductive genes in sperm, ova and placenta in ways that may “impair fertility and reproductive outcomes.” Not a single study has disproven this hypothesis, she noted. Another theory of how these injections might impair fertility can be found in a 2006 study, which showed sperm can take up foreign mRNA, convert it into DNA, and release it as little pellets (plasmids) in the medium around the fertilized egg.

The embryo then takes up these plasmids and carries them (sustains and clones them into many of the daughter cells) throughout its life, even passing them on to future generations. It’s possible that the pseudo-exosomes that are the mRNA contents would be perfect for supplying the sperm with mRNA for the spike protein. So, potentially, a vaccinated woman who gets pregnant with an embryo that can (via the sperms’ plasmids) synthesize the spike protein according to the instructions in the vaccine, would have an immune capacity to attack that embryo because of the “foreign” protein it displays on its cells. This then would cause a miscarriage. “We could potentially be sterilizing an entire generation,” Lindsey warned. The fact that there have been live births following COVID-19 vaccination is not proof that these injections do not have a reproductive effect, she said. Lindsay also pointed out that reports of menstrual irregularities and vaginal hemorrhaging in women who have received the injections number in the thousands, and this too hints at reproductive effects.

A Pandemic of Fear ‘Manufactured’ by Authorities – Risch (ET)

The COVID-19 pandemic has been one of fear, manufactured by individuals who were in the nominal positions of authority as the virus began to spread across the globe last year, according to Yale epidemiologist Dr. Harvey Risch. In an appearance on EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders” program, Risch, an epidemiology professor at the Yale School of Public Health and Yale School of Medicine’s Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, argued that by and large, what has characterized the entire CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic has been a “degree of fear and people’s response to the fear.” “Overall, I’d say that we’ve had a pandemic of fear. And fear has affected almost everybody, whereas the infection has affected relatively few,” said Risch.

“By and large, it’s been a very selected pandemic, and predictable. It was very distinguished between young versus old, healthy versus chronic disease people. So we quickly learned who was at risk for the pandemic and who wasn’t,” he added. “However, the fear was manufactured for everybody. And that’s what’s characterized the whole pandemic is that degree of fear and people’s response to the fear.” Risch has authored over 300 original peer-reviewed publications and was formerly a member of the board of editors for the American Journal of Epidemiology. The epidemiology professor suggested that individuals who held the nominal positions of authority during the onset of the pandemic in March 2020 initially spread a much worse picture of the “dire nature” of the virus than was warranted.

That included the message that everybody was at risk, everybody could die from contracting the virus, everybody needed to find protection, everybody needed to stay in their homes and not socialize with others to protect themselves, and in this way protect society, Risch explained. “People were quite afraid of that message, as anybody would be…with the government, with authorities, with scientists, scientific people, with medical people in authority in the public health institutions, all saying the same message starting in about, February, March of last year. And so we all kind of believe this,” he said.

In the first two months of the pandemic, stringent lockdowns and mask mandates were implemented to curb the transmission of COVID-19 in the United States and across the globe. Risch said that the types of messages issued by authorities led to widespread heightened anxiety levels. “All of our anxiety levels were raised, and we all made decisions to curtail, to various degrees, our exposures to other people, some more than others, but I think everybody had levels of anxiety that really affected how they carry out their life at that time,” he said.

How Pfizer Silences World Governments in Vaccine Negotiations (C.org)

A new Public Citizen report has revealed the extent to which Pfizer bullies governments in COVID-19 vaccine negotiations, including barring governments from discussing the agreements without Pfizer’s approval, retaining unilateral control to make key decisions and even securing an intellectual property waiver for itself. “Pfizer is taking advantage of countries’ desperation,” said Peter Maybarduk, director of Public Citizen’s Access to Medicines program. “Most of us have sacrificed during the pandemic; staying distant to protect family and friends. Pfizer went the other way, using its control of scarce vaccines to win special privileges, from people that have little choice.”In February, Pfizer was accused of bullying governments in a story published by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

Public Citizen has identified several Pfizer contracts, including with Brazil, Colombia, the European Commission and the U.S., that offer a glimpse into how the world’s second largest pharmaceutical corporation has gained the power to throttle supply, shift risk and maximize profits all during the worst public health crisis in a century.The report outlines how Pfizer consistently utilizes six tactics to leverage power against governments worldwide. First, Pfizer silences governments through the use of nondisclosure provisions in many of its contracts. Brazil, for example, is prohibited from making “any public announcement concerning the existence… or terms” of the contract or commenting on its relationship with Pfizer without Pfizer’s prior written consent. Second, Pfizer can disallow governments from accepting additional donations of the Pfizer vaccine.

Third, Pfizer exempts itself from liability for intellectual property infringements, shifting the financial risk of Pfizer’s actions to government purchasers – despite Pfizer’s opposition to similar exemptions for manufacturers proposed at the World Trade Organization. Fourth, it gives the power to secret private arbitrators, not public courts, to decide issues on contract disputes. Fifth, Pfizer requires some countries to waive sovereign immunity, so it can go after state assets in case of a dispute. Finally, Pfizer gives itself sole power when it comes to making key decisions, including how vaccine deliveries will be prioritized if there is a supply shortage.

“Behind closed doors, Pfizer wields its power to extract a series of concerning concessions from governments,” said Zain Rizvi, law and policy researcher at Public Citizen’s Access to Medicines program and author of the report. “The global community cannot allow pharmaceutical corporations to keep calling the shots.”Pfizer’s dominance over sovereign countries poses fundamental challenges to the global pandemic response. The U.S. government, and specifically the Biden administration, should use its considerable leverage to call on Pfizer to renegotiate its existing contracts and pursue fairer practices.

“There was plenty of reason to believe the spike protein, alone, was dangerous even without the rest of the virus and this was known prior to mass-distribution of the jabs.”

In A Word: Bull**** (Denninger)

There is no reason to believe we can successfully, on a long-term basis, vaccinate against a coronavirus since we never have before in either man or beast. There is no reason to believe attempting to vaccinate against coronaviruses is safe because in many other instances it was proved to be not, and in some it resulted in fatality of many or all the animals under test upon rechallenge. One specific instance of wildly-enhanced disease occurred in cats, which is a species that we know can become infected by this virus. There is no reason to believe that deliberately inducing the presence of binding antibodies in a person to this virus, which we knew the vaccines did before the EUAs were issued, would be safe on a durable basis.

In fact we had every reason to believe that would be unsafe simply based on what that sort of antibody does on a biological basis. You would in fact be crazily homicidal to deliberately infuse only binding antibodies to this or any other virus into a person. There was plenty of reason to believe the spike protein, alone, was dangerous even without the rest of the virus and this was known prior to mass-distribution of the jabs. While getting infected certainly could lead to trouble in this regard infection is not certain where vaccination, once you do it, is. Further, the dosing for the vaccines is set to produce much higher levels of spike protein (and thus antibodies) in the body than does natural infection, so any such risk from the spike would be logically expected to be higher from vaccination than natural infection.

As regards children there is not now and never has been an argument for giving them a Covid-19 vaccine. They do not require or benefit from any protection that it might afford on a statistical basis and since we know there are dangers, many of which we have no way to quantify and will not be able to do so for ten or more years it is a rank violation of logic and the Hippocratic Oath, never mind gross negligence and malpractice, to administer or permit to be administered same to kids.

Unvaccinated Canadians Can Be Banned From Grocery Stores In New Brunswick (TNC)

Beginning Saturday, people in New Brunswick who do not show proof of full vaccination can be barred from entering grocery stores to buy food. The measure was announced as part of the province’s “winter action plan,” which allows any business, including grocery stores, the option of barring unvaccinated individuals. According to Health Minister Dorothy Shephard, it comes as the province sees a “very concerning” rise in COVID infections over the last two weeks, particularly among unvaccinated Canadians. The province reported 97 cases and 2 deaths since Thursday. The new restriction belongs to the first level of a three-level escalating alert system.


“The measures are not difficult,” Shephard said, adding “the power to keep us in level one is in our hands.” In a guide published by the federal government, Public Safety Canada names food as one of ten critical sectors of infrastructure, calling its preparation and delivery an Essential Service and Function. While provinces have been free to manage their own restrictions and lockdowns during the pandemic, grocery stores across the country have until now remained open to everyone. The announcement comes a day after Shephard warned New Brunswickers against making Christmas travel plans.

Fauci Downplays Severity Of Omicron Strain (ZH)

[..] with almost two weeks since the first appearance of the Omicron variant and with a distinct lack of any evidence that the new strain is more dangerous, or results in a greater number of more acute hospitalizations than the Delta or other variants, the narrative by the “scientific establishment” – which has burned through most if not all of its credibility in the past year by constantly ‘moving the goal posts’ to serve various political agendas – appears to be changing once again, and earlier today none other than the chief health propaganda shaman of the Biden admin, Anthony Fauci, indicated that “the U.S. was encouraged by reports from South African officals that the rapid spread of omicron hadn’t yet resulted in a spike in hospitalizations in that country, an indication that the strain could be less virulent.”

“Though it’s too early to really make any definitive statements about it thus far, it does not look like there’s a great degree of severity to it,” Fauci said on Sunday in a CNN interview. He added that more review is needed to confirm that Omicron causes less illness than other variants, such as Delta, “but thus far, the signals are a bit encouraging.” Of course, making a blanket “all clear” determination would have made a mockery of all the fearmongering that was unleashed just last week, and so Fauci cautioned that it was too soon to make any “definitive statements” about the variant and encouraged Americans to get vaccinations and booster shots, adding that “you got to hold judgment until we get more experience.” Fauci’s comments came as the Biden administration reported that Omicron had spread to 16 US states.

The new variant’s many mutations suggest that it might not be effectively treated with some Covid-19 therapeutics and that it could evade the immunity provided by current vaccines, CDC director Dr Rochelle Walensky said on Sunday in an ABC News interview. Despite the concerns over jab efficacy, Fauci said getting more Americans to take vaccine booster shots will be “really critical in addressing whether or not we’re going to be able to handle this.” As with Delta, boosters will elevate immunity levels to help prevent infections, or at least reduce the severity of illnesses caused by the variant, he said as it becomes apparent that the narrative is now shifting to using Omicron as a talking point for widespread use of booster shots.

“The vaccines that we are distributing now in the United States and throughout the world are directed against the original, ancestral or Wuhan strain,” Fauci told Jake Tapper, who unlike his pal Chris Cuomo, has yet to be fired. He added that “we feel certain that there will be some degree, and maybe a considerable degree, of protection against the Omicron variant if, in fact, it starts to take hold in a dominant way in this country.”

FDA In Talks To Streamline Approval Of Omicron-specific Vaccine (JTN)

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky confirmed the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is “already in conversations” to streamline authorization of a new COVID-19 vaccine specifically for the new omicron variant. The Hill reports that ABC’s Martha Raddatz asked Walensky on Sunday, “Is there any world where you can see that moving much faster given we’ve already been through this?” The CDC director responded: “Much of that I would have to defer to the FDA, but they’re already in conversations about streamlining the authorization of this, of an omicron-specific vaccine, partially because much of the vaccine is actually exactly the same, and, really, it would just be that mRNA code that would have to change.


“FDA will move swiftly, and CDC will move swiftly right thereafter,” she said. Omicron was listed as a “variant of concern” by the World Health Organization shortly after Thanksgiving. Symptoms of omicron have been described as “extremely mild” by a South African doctor who helped discover the variant.

Lawyer For Dying Patient Who Recovered On Ivermectin Urges New Thinking (JTN)

An Illinois lawyer who helped a dying COVID patient win court-ordered treatment with ivermectin and survive says the episode reveals a deep need for American health professions to rethink their approach to a pandemic that has persisted nearly two full years. “There are obviously remedies that we’re not looking at,” attorney Kristin Erickson told Just the News. “And we need to think outside of the current standard of care that hospitals are giving. And if it’s not working, let’s look at outcomes and not finances.” Erickson represented 71-year-old Sun Ng of Naperville, Ill., who was on a ventilator for weeks and dying with COVID-19 when his lawyer won a court order Nov. 8 to force the hospital to treat him with ivermectin, an anti-parasitic and anti-inflammatory drug long used widely in the United States to treat disease like Lupus.

Within days. Ng recovered and is now back home walking and enjoying life, Erickson said. “After one day, he was able to do a breathing test he couldn’t do for 22 days,” she said in an interview on the John Solomon Reports podcast. “After three days, he was off the vent for two hours. And then by the fifth day, he was off it entirely. So the hospital tried to file for, you know, a physician report, after he was off the vent, saying that ivermectin is not the reason he’s better. But clearly it is.” There are numerous studies — Erickson said she located 66 studies globally — that show ivermectin is effective in fighting and warding off the virus, and it is used in places like India and Bangladesh but not in the United States. Even the National Institutes of Health’s Web site recently showcased one such study conducted by foreign researchers.

“I think the fact that it is so cheap, you know, and not money-making, could be the reason that we don’t use, we don’t want to back it,” Erickson said. “We don’t want the studies here in the United States.” Erickson said the phones at her office and the New York group that assisted Ng have been ringing off the hook and the courts are likely to be inundated for similar interventions for other patients after what happened in the Ng case. “I don’t know what people’s motivations are,” she said. “Certainly ours here is to help people get what they need. I know there’s a lot of good-hearted people out there who want to save people, even in the hospital setting. Physicians and nurses, they want to do the right thing. But if hospitals aren’t allowing it, that creates a barrier for people who are hospitalized.”

Michael Saylor: “Bitcoin Is The Oxygen Mask” (ZH)

[..] the bitcoin advocate notes that “money is that shared ledger of who owes what to whom,” explaining the difference between “weak money and strong money” in terms of being able to manufacture glass beads and dump them on Africa-past (glass beads are weak money) analogizing to the dollar (being able to ‘manufacture’ dollars and dump them on the world). Because of the inflationary impact on goods of this ‘manufacturing’ of dollars, you’re never going to catch up because you are being paid the currency: “the only way you can actually stay ahead is to grow your cashflows faster than the rate of monetary inflation… and that’s why the rate of expansion of the money supply is so critical.” Saylor makes the prescient point that while CPI dominates inflation discussions, “the government gets to pick what’s in that basket of goods and how it is weighted.”

The last decade has seen monetary inflation rise at around 14% per year… and the S&P has risen around 14% per year. The best inflation rate for an investor, Saylor explains, or for anyone who wants to stay wealthy or be wealthy – if you’re concerned about maintaining your economic purchasing power – “it’s the monetary inflation rate – the rate at which the supply of money is expanding.” Then Saylor takes us on a journey: “…the currency is to the economy what your blood is to your body… and economic energy or money is to the currency what oxygen is to your blood.” “So, common sense says that, if I keep sucking the oxygen out of the room, you’re going either suffocate or freeze to death…” “…and if I keep sucking the economic energy out of the currency, the economy collapses… and in the extreme you get ripped back to stone-age barter.”

“…when the money doesn’t work anymore, I have trade you cigarettes for bullets… and the problem with that is the economy becomes a million times less efficient.” “…how many countries in the world have a collapsed currency…66 of the dollarized [ZH: have an inflation problem]… there’s about 130 floating currencies and all of them are weaker than the dollar.” “The US dollar is the world’s reserve currency and the US dollar is expanding… it was expanding 10% a year for a decade… it’s now expanding at 14% a year and expanded 34% over the past 12 months…” [..] “…thus the dollar is weakening… it’s like the oxygen is getting sucked out of the room…”

Saylor turns to Tucker and asks “..if I told you the oxygen is getting sucked out of the room… but there’s an oxygen mask dropped out of the ceiling over there, what would you do?” Tucker exclaims “I’d run for it!” Saylor replies “yeah, put the oxygen mask on…” concluding his analogy by explaining that “Bitcoin is the oxygen mask.”

“..Chalous alone could supply as much as 52 percent of natural gas needs of the whole EU for the next 20 years..”

Russia Is Primed For A Persian Gulf Security ‘Makeover’ (Escobar)

Russia and Iran are forging a strengthened strategic partnership, not only geopolitical but also geoeconomic, fully aligned to the Russian-conceptualized Greater Eurasian Partnership – and also demonstrated by Moscow’s support for Iran’s recent ascension to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), the only West Asian state to be admitted thus far. Furthermore, three years ago Iran launched its own regional security framework proposal for the region called HOPE (the Hormuz Peace Endeavor) with the intent to convene all eight littoral states of the Persian Gulf (including Iraq) to address and resolve the vital issues of cooperation, security, and freedom of navigation. The Iranian plan didn’t get far off the ground. While Iran suffers from adversarial relations with some of its intended audience, Russia carries none of that baggage.

And that brings us to the essential Pipelineistan angle, which in the Russia–Iran case revolves around the new, multi-trillion dollar Chalous gas field in the Caspian Sea. A recent sensationalist take painted Chalous as enabling Russia to “secure control over the European energy market.” That’s hardly the story. Chalous, in fact, will enable Iran – with Russian input – to become a major gas exporter to Europe, something that Brussels evidently relishes. The head of Iran’s KEPCO, Ali Osouli, expects a “new gas hub to be formed in the north to let the country supply 20 percent of Europe’s gas needs.” According to Russia’s Transneft, Chalous alone could supply as much as 52 percent of natural gas needs of the whole EU for the next 20 years.

Chalous is quite something: a twin-field site, separated by roughly nine kilometers, the second-largest natural gas block in the Caspian Sea, just behind Alborz. It may hold gas reserves equivalent to one-fourth of the immense South Pars gas field, placing it as the 10th largest gas reserves in the world. Chalous happens to be a graphic case of Russia-Iran-China (RIC) geoeconomic cooperation. Proverbial western speculative spin rushed to proclaim the 20-year gas deal as a setback for Iran. The final breakdown, not fully confirmed, is 40 percent for Gazprom and Transneft, 28 percent for China’s CNPC and CNOOC, and 25 percent for Iran’s KEPCO. Moscow sources confirm Gazprom will manage the whole project. Transneft will be in charge of transportation, CNPC is involved in financing and banking facilities, and CNOOC will be in charge of infrastructure and engineering. The whole Chalous site has been estimated to be worth a staggering $5.4 trillion.

Santa To Replace ‘Naughty Or Nice’ List With ‘Vaxxed Or Unvaxxed’ List (BBee)

In a major break with hundreds of years of Christmas tradition, Santa Claus will not be using his famous “Naughty or Nice” list this year. Instead, Father Christmas will be keeping a list of vaccinated and unvaccinated children. “With the pandemic entering its second Christmas season, Santa felt the traditional ‘Naughty or Nice’ list needed an update,” said North Pole spokes-elf Trudy Toymaker. “This year, he’ll be keeping track of all the good little children who get vaccinated, as well as the evil unvaccinated kids who want their family and friends to die.” Vaccinated children will receive lots of toys and goodies from Santa, while the unvaccinated kids will get skunked this Christmas. “We don’t really give out coal anymore due to climate change,” Toymaker noted.


“Instead, the unvaccinated kids will receive a box of masks, some hand sanitizer, and a pre-filled postcard to report their conspiracy-theorist parents to child services and the FBI.” Toymaker said thousands of Elves on Shelves have been dispatched to pediatrician’s offices around the country to keep track of which children are getting vaccinated. Santa’s tech team also plans to hack into children’s electronic medical records later this month to make sure nobody is missed. In addition to the new vaccine requirements, Santa is asking families to include a $20 bill with his traditional plate of milk and cookies this year. “This will help Santa offset rising costs due to inflation and elf labor shortages,” Toymaker said.

    “The surest way to work up a crusade in favor of some good cause is to promise people they will have a chance of maltreating someone.

    What was that from yesterday, forcing EVs on people so we can track, measure, and shut off your travel? The Hyperinflation Bill had a line ordering all new cars to do 2 out of 3: measure and shut off. Of course it’s for “Drunk Driving” whatever that is, since they don’t define it at all. Better hope you don’t get injured and try to drive to the hospital because it’ll shut you off. OnStar tracks you 100% right now, but then, so does your cell phone, so…

    Integrate these systems and boom! Glenn Greenwald and Julian Assange drive over a cliff. Like the “more whistleblowers than all other Presidents” combined under Obama. While he was wiretapping the AP. Shut off cars and Republican voters don’t make it to the polls in time. And what they’re doing already: get the records you can meet Senator Blowhard at his mistresses’ house (Actually “Mister”) for a little discussion about the next vote on industry funding.

    This isn’t for you. But once they build it, they’ll 100% use it on you. “Your Social Security number will never be used for anything…It’s not a government tracking number.” Uh-huh. You were breathing. Breath came out of your mouth. Therefore I know you were lying.

    Fauci Downplays Severity of Omicron Strain”

    Following the public’s lead as always. He gets up, reads the polls, and that the Science for the day, from Mr. Scienz himself.

    The Supreme Court that shouldn’t bother (U.S. Media has already decided) is being told that they can’t rule anymore because it’s “Too political.” Well, I guess close ‘em up then! We’ll have one branch of government: Twitter. They’re already your doctor, already own Congress and the President, and they already have all your personal information, so why not?

    Newsflash: Supreme Court have been political hacks since Marbury v Madison, and reverse themselves almost all the time. It’s arguably their self-assigned reason for being. Their fame rests largely on overturning original laws in place for 100, 150, 200 years. Now: oops! They were never “real” laws. Hamilton didn’t know what he was talking about! “Free Speech” is not a thing, just a big misunderstanding.

    It’s the craven silliness that gets me. I want to WIN! I don’t care what I have to do or who I hurt to get there.

    Yup, Webster on speed-dial. I no longer have to use hyperbole. Reality itself goes too far. That’s why South Park stopped.

    And again, 99% of the “Anti-vaxxers” are vaxxed within an inch of their life with everything but this one. What’s the usual round for someone, say, 40yo? Maybe 20 vaxxes by now? So they’re “anti-vax” in the way McDonald’s is “anti-cheeseburger.” Webster: Trust and Truth since 1820. …Until one year after being bought by social media companies, when words lost all meaning, in an infinite march where history stands still, forever.

    It has to stand still. That boot on your face isn’t going to curb-stamp itself, you know. We’ve got psychological luxury and privilege of mistreating someone to sell, and it’s goin’ like hotcakes!

    S.A. refuses lockdowns. Well, he’ll accidentally die soon like the last 5 African leaders who accidentally did the same.

    “Lovely – and all this ill-gotten gain and filthy lucre will be reinvested back into political lobbying, revolving doors and thus more insanity.”

    It goes with BlackRock and pals being major shareholders and cross-board members on every major corporation from Raytheon to Disney. It’s actually public and not that hard to track. Pharma are some of those boards, but as we saw, Reuters is another. And then execs from FDA, EPA, revolving-door through all those positions. I don’t know how much easier they can make it for you. “Merger” of “Corporation” and “State.” …I take it back: Surely Webster has redefined all three words by now.

    “In A Word: Bull**** (Denninger)”

    Yes, they did 10 solid years of study on this and killed everyone. “So there was no reason to” is really “100% of our evidence proved” exactly what we see when it was rolled out to humans. They knew then, they know now, they always knew, there was no evidence in their research suggesting anything else. Just rose-colored dollar signs. So we can prove it was intentional 40 ways. And Way #41 is putting it in children, who are immune and not at risk. What we lack is a prescription to Growacet and a cargo jet of handcuffs.

    “Unvaccinated Canadians Can Be Banned From Grocery Stores In New Brunswick (TNC)”

    Since the vaccinated get it and spread it, we clearly need to protect the…I forget, who again? By not allowing them to eat? They’ll be way healthier and more alive. But that’s okay, Canada is famous for the separate drinking fountains they’re installing.

    “The double barrel: induce enough panic, and then soothe it a little.”

    This was right out of the psychological manipulation and control manual. They have no imagination. Why should they? No one can be bothered to read or act, so it always works.

    “The vaccines are directed against the original, ancestral or Wuhan strain,”

    15 Days to stop the ancestral. Been around so long it has great-great grandchildren. The humans, however, do not. Fauci loves his pets.

    ““FDA will move swiftly, and CDC will move swiftly right thereafter,” she said.”

    Yes!!! “Swifty but never carefully” is our new motto. And always, always before the data is collected. Initial data is coming out in 2023. The rest the FDA will release in 2075.

    “..Chalous alone could supply as much as 52 percent of natural gas needs of the whole EU for the next 20 years..”

    See? There’s a lotta-lotta petrol in the world to burn. Generations still only starting with Iran. But that’s not the cure to our problems. Burning the petrol will only get us more of this: liquid hegemonic power.

    “We don’t really give out coal anymore due to climate change,” Toymaker noted.”

    “Climate change” causes heart defects in newborns now. Haven’t you read the news? Not the BabylonBee. And it does it via…telekinesis? Sympathetic structural failure? Not sure, but it’s really, really Sciency.

    It’s like “Truthiness” only with 99% less Truth.

    The latest from el gato malo:

    the last time tony fauci was pushing masks for disease mitigation
    he was making up his facts and scare mongering too

    many of you are probably too young to remember the AIDS panic of the 80’s.

    but when it came out, the NIH, with tony fauci leading the charge, was getting literally everything wrong.

    they pushed a narrative of fear, vilified the infected, interfered with the development and adoption of effective treatments, and completely misrepresented spread and mitigation.

    it’s how we wound up with absolute garbage like this ad…

Is the contract for Australia what’s stopping doctors giving people who absolutely need a medical exemption from giving an exemption due to the “legal liability” ? Is the Austrian contract what’s pushing Austria to talk about forced injections? Is what’s in the contract leading EU president von der Leyen to opine the Nuremberg Code can be ignored this one time?

    Jim Kunstler has a great essay this morning, weaving the ‘Mass Formation’ theory of Belgian professor Mattias Desmet into both the Trump presidency and the Covid pandemic. I was greatly impressed by this theory when it was first linked here by one of our commenters, probably germ. Since then, I’ve seen his theory receive a tremendous amount of exposure and amplification in alt-media, which it richly deserves.

    Dora: “I’d like to know what’s in those Pfizer contracts.”

    Public Citizen published a report with links to some unredacted Pfizer contracts. (I removed the links here to avoid the spam filter).

    [5] Albania-Pfizer Contract Draft, (“Albania Draft Contract”), (Jan. 6 2021) .. The final provisions of the agreement may have differed from this draft. However, given similarities between this draft and the other reviewed agreements, we believe the modifications, if any, were likely not substantial. The contract was first leaked on Twitter, and then shared widely in the press.

    [6] Brazil-Pfizer Contract (“Brazil Contract”), (March 15 2021)… The contract was leaked online and later covered by The Guardian in August. See e.g., https://tinyurl.com/yupsz2j4.

    [7] Colombia-Pfizer Contract (“Colombia Contract”), (Feb. 2 2021), … The contract was leaked in the Colombian Media in August. https://tinyurl.com/4vswvrz4. It is currently referenced in the UNICEF Vaccine Market Dashboard.

    [8] Chile-Pfizer Contract (“Chile Contract”) (Dec. 1 2021), … A Chilean transparency initiative published a redacted version of the contract.

    [9] Dominican Republic-Pfizer Contract (“D.R. Contract”) (Oct. 29 2020), … Knowledge Ecology International obtained the contract through a freedom of information law request.

    [10] The text was subject to the approval of the Dominican Republican National Congress, which reportedly approved the text with no objections. Pfizer and AstraZeneca, The Game of Contracts with Small Print, Dominican Today…

    [11] European Commission-Pfizer Contract (“E.C. Contract”) (Nov. 20 2020), https://tinyurl.com/3bph89wy. The Italian public broadcaster RAI published the EC Contract in April.

    [12] 15.5 EUR.

    [13] Peru-Pfizer Contract (“Peru Contract”) (Sept. 17 2020), … The Bureau of Investigative Journalism published the contract.

    [14] United States-Pfizer Contract (“U.S. Contract”) (July 21 2020),… The contract is available on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website.

    [15] United Kingdom-Pfizer Contract (“U.K Contract”) (Oct. 10 2020),… This likely is the definitive agreement that follows on from initial agreement announced in July. The contract is available on the U.K government website.

    CNN: Preacher who spread vaccine lies dies after being hospitalized with Covid-19
    https://youtu.be/4gIuyFixgaU

    Someone in the comments noted that he was diabetic and was having difficulty with that. The rest of his family including wife recovered from Covid. He was breathing fine, apparently his heart gave out. (Can no longer find that comment.)

    Just because someone is against mRNA vaccines does not make them immune to Covid-19. Most of them acknowledge this risk assessment. Or for some, it is a matter of belief, or principle.

    Has there been any gloating or glee over, oh, just for instance, the 32% of Covid deaths that were fully vaccinated in Maryland?
    That was back in Oct/early Nov–officials admit they expect the percentage to rise “as more people get vaccinated”. That statement of course makes perfect sense to anyone drowning in mass (disin)formation.

    Around this time, the Holiday Wars commence, from Black Friday refund skirmishes to the annual exchange of artillery between the Jesus-is-the-reason-for-the-season camp and the secularly generic Happy Holidays crowd.

    I’ll disappoint the Jesus Rules crowd with the fact that all Biblical scholars agree that JC was born in spring or fall (when, for example, shepherds would be in their fields abiding whereas in winter they’d be down in the valley with their sheep in pens for the winter), not during winter solstice.

    I’ll disappoint the secular humanists by reminding them that Holiday means Holy Day, so don’t mess with other people’s sense of what is holy, awreddy. Go pee on a bare aluminum pole and air your grievances elsewhere.

    It’s December 6th. Hello and farewell Hannukah. Lord knows God loves a good Jew but Christmas kicks hannukah’s butt big time.

    Here’s my take:

    What Christmas means…

    …is anyone’s guess. What Santa Claus
    And caribou might share in cause
    With three wise men in turbaned gauze
    Or Mary’s child, or Rome’s tax laws
    Is none too clear but filled with good.
    How crucifix and manger wood,
    Or desert palm and evergreen
    Can somehow altogether mean
    A wished-for-world of pure intent
    Where all the best is what is spent
    Is moot. No less, it’s nice to know,
    That Arab sand and winter snow
    Can form mosaics in the mind
    Of all we dream that’s good & kind.
    Those shepherds out there with their sheep
    Who, wakened from their frigid sleep
    By angel song and quasar light
    Are those I envy most that night.
    The star impaled on a crucified tree
    To grace our potlatch spending spree
    Can only shine and share its light:
    It’s what stars do, it has the right.
    To give us wonder and delight
    As day succumbs to winter night.
    Robin Morrison, 1995

    Halfway between the first Xmas and now

    But Santa Claus was mos def born on Xmas Day. Prove me wrong, suckahs!

    I was raised on a Xmas nativity and, were I JC, I’d enjoy a little icy drama in my birth story. Me and Mom in a manger, animals circled around us for warmth while Dad boiled tea in goat milk with salt and honey brought by three wealthy madmen claiming to be Holy Wise Men who said they’d come from far Hindustan to see Mary’s Baby.

    It was around then that Dad started to believe that maybe the kid was kinda different after all.

    I was lacking mental clarity with my comments yesterday which I realized after reading a response from upstateNYer. I have done no further reading since and have been trying to figure out what happened to my mind. I am living in isolation from civilization and I really don’t know what is going on in this world. What I see written about what is happening in this world causes me to feel it is not fair, not just, not right, not kind and not caring. What I imagine is going on is the government is crushing the citizens. With respect to the native peoples, I was thinking they have potential to be safest if it was not possible to tax them off their lands. But it occurs to me I no longer believe the government to be fair or just. They seem to invent emergency measures whenever they feel like it. Following the law at some point may not be in your best interests. Where this leads I don’t want to think about presently. Sorry to all. I am not thinking clearly.

    Your “Pfizer can get stuffed” comment reminded me of a time, long ago, when I was staying at a family run motel in the Hunter Valley outside of Singleton, NSW.

    It was the day before Xmas and one of the kitchen girls came out and said to the owner that she had just finished stuffing the turkey! No sooner had she said it, she turned beak red, after realizing what she had just said!

    We all burst out laughing because of the double meaning! One most definately doesn’t “stuff” a turkey in Australia!
