Whistleblowers Share DOD Vaccine Data (Horowitz)

On Monday, during Sen. Ron Johnson’s five-hour hearing on a “COVID-19: Second Opinion,” Ohio attorney Thomas Renz, who has been representing clients suing the vaccine mandates, presented DOD medical billing data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) that paints a shockingly disturbing picture of the health of our service members in 2021. According to the military, DMED is the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Branch’s (AFHSB) “web-based tool to remotely query de-identified active component personnel and medical event data contained within the Defense Medical Surveillance System (DMSS).” In other words, it contains every ICD medical billing code for any medical diagnosis in the military submitted for medical insurance billing during any given period of time.

Three military doctors have presented queried data to Renz that shows a shocking and sudden spike in nearly every ICD code for common vaccine injuries in 2021. In a declaration under penalty of perjury that Renz plans to use in federal court, Drs. Samuel Sigoloff, Peter Chambers, and Theresa Long — three military doctors — revealed that there has been a 300% increase in DMED codes registered for miscarriages in the military in 2021 over the five-year average. The five-year average was 1,499 codes for miscarriages per year. During the first 10 months of 2021, it was 4,182. As Renz explained to me in an interview with TheBlaze, these doctors queried the numbers for hundreds of codes from 2016 through 2020 to establish a baseline five-year average. These codes were generally for ailments and injuries that medical literature has established as being potential adverse effects of the vaccines.

Renz told me the numbers tended to be remarkably similar in all those preceding years, including in 2020, which was the first year of the pandemic but before the vaccines were distributed. But then in 2021, the numbers skyrocketed, and the 2021 data doesn’t even include the months of November and December. For example, some public health officials speculate that COVID itself places women at higher risk for miscarriages. But the number of miscarriage codes recorded in 2020 was actually slightly below the five-year average (1,477). However, they were not drastically below the average on any one category in a way that one can suggest it reflects lockdown-related decreases in doctor’s visits, which somehow led to an increase in 2021 diagnoses.

[..] Some other numbers he did not mention at the hearing but gave to me in the interview are the following:
• myocardial infarction –269% increase
• Bell’s palsy – 291% increase
• congenital malformations (for children of military personnel) – 156% increase
• female infertility – 471% increase
• pulmonary embolisms – 467% increase
All these numbers are among the ambulatory visits because those are where the vast number of diagnoses in the military occur. However, Renz did say the increases were indicated in the hospitalized patients as well. I have seen one of the sworn declarations from one of the military doctors, and it states as follows, “It is my professional opinion that the major increases incidences of the above discussed instances of miscarriages, cancers, and disease were due to COVID-19 ‘vaccinations.'”

Original Antigenic Sin

CDC Study Suggests Unboosted Vaccines Become Worse Than Nothing (JTN)

Two-dose COVID-19 vaccines may after an initial protective window become less effective against symptomatic infection by the Omicron variant than not getting jabbed at all, according to little-noticed findings in a federal study of how well boosters performed against different variants. The “adjusted odds ratio” crossed 1 for vaccinated versus unvaccinated individuals 7-10 months after vaccination, according to the “original investigation” by Atlanta-based CDC researchers, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association last week. That means the vaccinated were more likely than the unvaccinated to have symptomatic Omicron infections beginning at about the time the former become eligible for boosters. When considering the upper bound of the 95% confidence interval, the disparity emerged two months earlier.

Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine performed worse than Moderna’s, the researchers wrote. “The upper bound of the 95% CI was consistently greater than 1 starting at 3 months after second dose” for the former and six months for the latter. By contrast, the odds ratios for either vaccine never got close to 1 for the Delta variant, even for the upper bound. Even as evidence of the short-lived efficacy of the COVID mRNA vaccines continues to mount, federal regulators stepped in Tuesday to block doctors from using monoclonal antibodies to treat COVID patients. The FDA on Monday revoked authorizations for two such treatments against Omicron infections, including the one used by then-President Trump, finding they were “highly unlikely to be active” against the now-dominant variant.

The little-noticed findings in the JAMA study were highlighted by law professor Todd Zywicki, whose natural immunity lawsuit prompted George Mason University to grant him a medical exemption from its vaccine mandate. “Still more confirmation that Pfizer and Moderna’s CEOs know what they are talking about when they state that 2 doses of vax provides insignificant (at best) protection against Omicron,” Zywicki tweeted Tuesday. [..] The adjusted odds ratio of symptomatic Omicron infection for boosted versus unvaccinated individuals was 0.33, and for boosted versus two-dose recipients, 0.34. That means three doses corresponded with an “estimated effectiveness” of 67% over no doses, and 66% over two doses.

The study confirms that “OVERALL vaccine efficacy is zero,” Zywicki told Just the News: The first few months of protection “rapidly approaches zero” around the six-month mark and then goes negative for a few more months. He said the JAMA study was the fourth to find “basically this same negative [vaccine efficacy] effect” that he documented in an Epoch Times op-ed on “original antigenic sin.” Zywicki highlighted research from Toronto, California and Denmark that found negative VE starting two to six months after vaccination. The California study was “slippery,” he claimed, because “the authors appear to have simply arbitrarily set a floor of zero vaccine efficacy.”

“Not my kid!”

Fauci Says Children Younger Than 4 Will Get Three Doses Of Covid Vaccines (NYP)

The White House said Wednesday that the COVID-19 vaccine regime for kids younger than 4 years old will likely be three doses when it’s approved — and vowed to make millions more hard-to-find Pfizer anti-viral pills available in coming months. Two clinical trials of the Pfizer vaccine on children ages 6 months to 2 years old, and ages 2 to 4 are underway, but the older group hasn’t yet met standards, White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said at a press conference. “Dose and regimen for children 6 months to 24 months worked well, but it turned out the other group from 24 months to 4 years did not yet reach the level of non-inferiority, so the studies are continued,” Fauci said, referencing effectiveness standard comparison to adults.

“It looks like it will be a three-dose regimen. I don’t think we can predict when we will see it [approved],” he said — adding he can’t speak for the Food and Drug Administration. “We need to be patient,” he said. “That’s why the system works. The FDA is very scrupulous in their ability and in their effort to make sure that, before something gets approved for any age, and especially with children … that they will be safe, and that they will be effective.” Meanwhile, White House officials promised to release millions more Pfizer antiviral pills by June, amid reports that the medicine has been difficult to find in recent weeks. “We’ve purchased 20 million treatment courses of the Pfizer pill and we accelerated delivery of the first 10 million from September to the end of June,” said White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeff Zients.

No freedom left.

Quebec Bans Unvaccinated From Buying Groceries At Walmart, Costco (TNC)

Unvaccinated Quebecers over 12 years old are now banned from buying groceries at big box stores including Walmart and Costco, while people wishing to access pharmacies inside those outlets will require a store escort. This comes as Quebec’s new vaccine requirement for retail stores over 1500 square meters took effect today. While the new mandate explicitly excluded grocery stores and pharmacies, the Quebec government said they did not consider groceries to be Walmart and Costco’s “principal activity.” The box-store ban comes despite statistics showing that Walmart and Costco are among the top three places where Canadians get their groceries. Quebec’s health minister Christian Dubé is standing by the measure, claiming that the goal is to protect “both the vaccinated and the non-vaccinated.”

An exemption was added for pharmacies located inside big box stores after pharmacy leaders raised concerns in a letter to the government. Unvaccinated people who wish to access those pharmacies must be accompanied by a store employee, who will ensure they make no other purchases. Unvaccinated Quebecers are now subject to the harshest government restrictions in Canada, and some of the strictest in the world. Quebec also requires vaccine passports at government-run liquor and cannabis stores, and a “significant” health tax is on the way. The government also announced that Quebecers would require a third jab for their vaccine passports to remain valid. At one point, the Quebec government even considered banning the unvaccinated from regular grocery stores and pharmacies that offer delivery, but it appears they have abandoned the idea.

Maybe. But why would you need vaccines?

Mayo Clinic Expert Predicts Covid-19 Will Be Around Until Next Century (DM)

While many Americans are beginning to look towards a life after Covid, and some experts are making optimistic predictions about the future of the pandemic, the entire scientific community is not in agreement. Dr Gregory Poland, epidemiologist for the Mayo Clinic and is editor-in-chief of the scientific journals ‘Vaccine’ and one of the nation’s top experts on vaccination and immunology, said this week that the virus could be affecting humans for the next century. In a conversation with MarketWatch on Tuesday he gave a grave prediction that counters what some worldwide global health experts are saying.

Due to the rapid transmission of the Omicron Covid variant combined with its more mild nature, experts are hopeful that it be the strain that transitions the virus from a pandemic to an endemic, meaning the pattern of the virus is stable and predictable. Poland does not share the same optimistic point of view. ‘We are not yet at any stage where we could predict endemicity. We’re not going to eradicate it,’ Poland said. He noted that the virus has shown the ability to infect animals, meaning it can potentially circulate indefinitely as it transmits across species and continues to mutate. Poland believes the virus will circulate for so long that people will still be receiving Covid shots for generations down the line.

‘So let me make a prediction, which will be hard for any of you to hold me to because we will all be dead by then, but your great-great-great-grandchildren will still be getting immunized against coronavirus,’ ‘How can I even say such a thing? If you got your flu vaccine this fall you were immunized against a strain of influenza that showed up in 1918 and caused a pandemic.’ This is not the first grim prediction Poland has made, and he has been correct before. Last month, he told DailyMail.com that he believed 32,000 people would die from Covid between early December to the end of the year. ‘32,000 Americans who think they’re going to be alive to celebrate Christmas and New Years are, no pun intended, dead wrong,’ he said on December 9. ‘Not one of them believes [they will die].’ During that period, 31,000 U.S. Covid deaths were recorded, nearly a spot on prediction, per Our World in Data.

“..those payments are tied to their use of approved treatments only, as outlined in the CARES Act.”

Florida Doctor: Families Sneak Ivermectin to Loved Ones in Hospitals (ET)

A Florida doctor says families of loved ones hospitalized with COVID-19 are resorting to desperate measures when approved treatments have failed. And when it’s not too late, some have seen tremendous success by sneaking medications prohibited by hospitals to patients, says Eduardo Balbona, an independent internist in Jacksonville. He’s helped dozens of seriously ill patients recover using ivermectin and other drugs and supplements not officially approved in the treatment of COVID-19, he says. Hospitals receive payments from the federal government for treating patients with COVID-19. But those payments are tied to their use of approved treatments only, as outlined in the CARES Act. When there’s nothing left to try under those protocols, families naturally research alternatives, Balbona says, often learning about treatments touted by independent physicians around the country.

Hoping to try anything that might work, families around the country have filed lawsuits asking judges to intervene. In some cases, judges have ordered hospitals to allow the use of other treatments, such as ivermectin. Some of those seriously ill patients have recovered. In other cases, judges have sided with hospitals and declined the families’ requests to try. Meanwhile, independent physicians like Balbona watch helplessly, feeling that when families ask, they should be allowed to try medications they believe can turn critically ill patients around. But independent doctors often have limited hospital privileges and may be banned from seeing their own patients in some hospitals.

“Some states have banned vaccine mandates for private employees, while other states, like New York, require them.”

OSHA Withdraws Workplace Vaccine Mandate (CHD)

The Biden administration is withdrawing its COVID vaccine-or-test mandate for large employers, the U.S. Department of Labor announced today. In pulling the rule, the department said it recognized the Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) could not be revived after the U.S. Supreme Court blocked it earlier this month. Instead, the Biden administration is working to set a permanent standard for the vaccine mandate based on the Supreme Court’s ruling, according to a notice provided to the court by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA said in a press release:

“Although OSHA is withdrawing the vaccination and testing ETS as an enforceable emergency temporary standard, the agency is not withdrawing the ETS as a proposed rule. The agency is prioritizing its resources to focus on finalizing a permanent COVID-19 Healthcare Standard.” OSHA could move a version of the vaccine-or-test rule through its rule-making process, but would still likely face legal challenges, according to David Michaels, a former OSHA administrator and professor at George Washington University. The Labor Department’s decision to withdraw the rule means pending legal proceedings will be dropped. The case was on its way back to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals to be heard on the merits, although the lower court most likely would have followed the Supreme Court’s lead, The New York Times reported.

Without OSHA’s vaccine mandate in effect, employers must follow state and local laws on COVID workplace safety. Some states have banned vaccine mandates for private employees, while other states, like New York, require them. “OSHA continues to strongly encourage the vaccination of workers against the continuing dangers posed by Covid-19 in the workplace,” the Labor Department wrote in the notice of its withdrawal. The Supreme Court on Jan. 13, rejected the Biden administration’s employer mandate. The court’s conservative majority said the administration overstepped its authority by imposing OSHA’s vaccine-or-test rule.

“Pfizer’s legal bill will likely be multiple times what it would cost the FDA to simply hire a private document review company..”

FDA Stonewalls On Vaccine Data, Pfizer Has Now Intervened (BN)

The Food and Drug Administration thought it was appropriate that it be given 75 years to produce data for vaccines, which have proven to be the basis for the biggest public policy disaster in U.S. history. The judge instead ordered it to fork over the documents at a rate over a hundred times faster what it had requested. “I am pleased to report that a federal judge soundly rejected the FDA’s request and ordered the FDA to produce all the data at a clip of 55,000 pages per month!” Aaron Siri, who is the key litigator in the case, announced earlier on his Substack page. But in an update to the legal battle, Siri now indicates that the FDA is dragging its feet while providing flimsy excuses about why it won’t do what it was ordered.

The FDA “has now asked the Court to make the public wait until May for it to start producing 55,000 pages per month and, even then, claims it may not be able to meet this rate,” Siri writes. “The FDA’s excuse?” he asked rhetorically. “As explained in the brief opposing the FDA’s request, the FDA’s defense effectively amounts to claiming that the 11 document reviewers it has already assigned and the 17 additional reviewers being onboarded are only capable of reading at the speed of preschoolers.” Even more ominously for scientific transparency and the rule of law, Pfizer has even intervened in the case. Siri pointed out that the pharmaceutical company’s reps showed up at the recent court trial.

“As the FDA tries to obtain months of delay, guess who just showed upon in the lawsuit? Yep, Pfizer,” he said. “And it is represented by a global chair and team from a law firm with thousands of lawyers. Pfizer’s legal bill will likely be multiple times what it would cost the FDA to simply hire a private document review company to review, redact, and produce the documents at issue. Within weeks, if not days.” “Pfizer is coming in as a third party,” he added. “But Pfizer assures the Court it is here to help expedite production of the documents. Sure it is! Where was Pfizer before the Court ordered the 55,000 pages per month? Right, doing what it normally does: letting the government work on its behalf – like the way the government mandates, promotes, and defends Pfizer’s product.”

“But the government did not please Pfizer this time and so here it comes, likely looking for a second bite at the apple,” Siri said. “Of course the FDA consented to Pfizer appearing.” The federal judge in the case earlier issued a ruling against the FDA that it had to produce 55,000 pages a month, instead of the originally requested 55 years to release all of them. Aaron Siri weighed in on the importance of the court’s ruling. “No person should ever be coerced to engage in an unwanted medical procedure,” Siri said. ”And while it is bad enough the government violated this basic liberty right by mandating the Covid-19 vaccine, the government also wanted to hide the data by waiting to fully produce what it relied upon to license this product until almost every American alive today is dead. That form of governance is destructive to liberty and antithetical to the openness required in a democratic society.”

Rand Paul: What To Do When Confronted By ‘Crazy Lunatic’ Mask People (SN)

Appearing on Fox News Tuesday, Senator Rand Paul issued advice on what to do if you find yourself confronted by one of the dwindling numbers of mask wearing “lunatics” who continue to appeal for mass “collectivism”. Host Jesse Watters asked Paul about a recent indecent in which two mask Karens attacked a man for not wearing one, and as he was black, kept yelling ‘Black lives Matter’ at him. “These people clearly aren’t well,” Watters noted, adding “Large swaths of America are in a Covid cult.” The host asked the Senator “As a medical professional, as a genteel Senator and a polite individual, Dr. Rand Paul, what would you recommend Americans do when they are confronted with these mask maniacs, when they are yelled at and screamed at and being recorded on their phone? How should they handle that in a respectful but normal way?”

“See, I would say bear spray but I’m afraid that will get me in trouble so I won’t say that,” Paul jokingly responded. He followed up “I think you should back away and say, ‘Lady, you are crazy, leave me the hell alone,’ but you should not confront her.” Paul continued, “You should not use violence. Back away and just say look, can you not find some other lunatic friends to hang around with?” Paul also noted that “Really this is a difference between individualism and collectivism.” “I have an opinion, but I’m not wanting to enforce it on anybody. I’m not telling you that you can’t wear a mask. I’m just saying don’t make me wear a mask when it doesn’t work,” the Senator urged.

I’d say Spotify sides with itself. They can’t very well censor people every time someone takes offence with something.

Spotify Sides With Joe Rogan, Removes Neil Young’s Music: ‘A Costly Move’ (NYP)

Spotify has sided with its podcast superstar over Neil Young. The legendary folk singer gave the streaming behemoth an ultimatum earlier this week, saying he refused to allow his music on the same platform as Joe Rogan. The “Heart of Gold” singer accused Rogan and his podcast of spreading false information about COVID-19 vaccines. Spotify reportedly paid more than $100 million deal to be the exclusive home of Rogan’s show. Young, meanwhile, stands to lose 60% of his streaming income from his defiant stance, he said in a statement on his website. “We want all the world’s music and audio content to be available to Spotify users,” a spokesperson for the company told the Wall Street Journal. “With that comes great responsibility in balancing both safety for listeners and freedom for creators.”

Since the start of the pandemic, the spokesman noted, Spotify has removed more than 20,000 COVID-related podcast episodes. Still, Young’s protests were not sufficient for it to drop its lucrative star talker. “We regret Neil’s decision to remove his music from Spotify, but hope to welcome him back soon,” the spokesperson added. Rogan’s podcast has attracted an estimated 11 million listeners. Young’s letter — which is now deleted from his website — did not mince words in accusing the streaming giant of giving an undeserved platform to Rogan and his COVID-19 vaccine “misinformation.” “I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform,” wrote the 76-year-old rock icon. “I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them.”

[..] Young thanked his publisher Hipgnosis and his label Warner Records/Reprise for supporting his ultimatum. “Losing 60% of worldwide streaming income by leaving SPOTIFY is a very big deal, a costly move, but worth it for our integrity and beliefs. Misinformation about COVID is over the line.” He went on to nudge other artists to take a similar stance. “I sincerely hope that other artists can make a move, but I can’t really expect that to happen,” Young said. “I did this because I had no choice in my heart. It is who I am. I am not censoring anyone. I am speaking my own truth.”Although Young did not specifically note which episodes he took issue with, Rogan did recently host Dr. Robert Malone, the “anti-vaxxer epidemiologist” who was recently booted from Twitter for alleged dissemination of vaccine misinformation…

I’m trying to get interested.

Is the Fed Delusional or a Big Pack of Liars? (Mish)

Powell: It will soon be appropriate to raise the Federal Funds target rate. …. Reducing our balance sheet will occur after the process of raising interest rates has begun.

Mish: Inflation suggests it was appropriate a year ago. At the very least, expanding the balance sheet now is ridiculous. Yet the Fed will still expand through March 2022. The Fed made similar statements a year or so ago, and thus committed to let inflation burn higher regardless of what happened in the interim.

Powell: Reductions will occur over time in a predictable manner. primarily through adjustments to reinvestments so that securities will roll off our balance sheet. … The Committee has not made decisions regarding specific timing, pace or other details of shrinking the balance sheet. We will discuss these matters in upcoming meetings and provide additional information at the appropriate time.

Mish: This implies a very slow balance sheet reduction. In practice, it’s highly likely the next recession hits before the Fed gets seriously underway with balance sheet reduction.

Chris Rugaber, Associated Press: Are rate hikes at consecutive meetings on the table? Is every meeting a live meeting? Would the Fed consider frontloading rate hikes?

Powell: It is not possible to predict with much confidence what path our policy will take will prove appropriate. … We will be humble and nimble. … We will be led by the incoming data.

Mish: Just like the Fed was led by the incoming inflation data? Here’s the real deal: The Fed will do what it wants and will bend subsequent wishy-washy statements to justify whatever policy it wants to set.

Nick Timiraos, Wall Street Journal: Apart from moving faster to shrink [balance sheet] holdings are there any other ways you and your colleagues are seriously thinking about recalibrating this process? And finally, how much disagreement is there on how you use tools?

Powell: I am afraid to tell you those are all great questions, but those are questions the committee is just turning to now.

Mish: This implies the Fed has been on autopilot all this time, and amazingly is still there despite huge inflation every step of the way. The Fed announced QE through March of 2022 and despite everything that happened, did not waver from announced policy. Yet, the Fed wants us to believe it will decide policy on the basis of incoming data!

“to see whether Washington is willing to discuss any sort of commitment that constrains U.S. power.”

The Ukraine Crisis, Sponsored By US Hegemony And War Profiteers (Maté)

The row over Ukraine is the outgrowth of an aggressive US posture toward Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union three decades ago, driven by hegemonic policymakers and war profiteers in Washington. Understanding that background is key to resolving the current impasse, if the Biden administration can bring itself to alter a dangerous course. Russia’s central demands – binding guarantees to halt the eastward expansion of NATO, particularly in Ukraine, and to prevent offensive weapons from being stationed near its borders – have been publicly dismissed by the U.S government as non-starters. In rejecting Russian concerns, the Biden administration claims that it is upholding “governing principles of international peace and security.”

These principles, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken says, “reject the right of one country to change the borders of another by force; to dictate to another the policies it pursues or the choices it makes, including with whom to associate; or to exert a sphere of influence that would subjugate sovereign neighbors to its will.” The US government’s real-world commitment to these principles is non-existent. For decades, the US has provided critical diplomatic and military cover for Israel’s de-facto annexations, which have expanded its borders to three different strips of occupied territory (the West Bank, Gaza, and Syria’s Golan Heights). The US is by far the world leader in dictating policies to other countries, be it who their leaders should be; how little to pay minimum-wage workers; or how to share energy supplies.

The Biden administration continues to subjugate sovereign countries to its will, whether it’s “neighbors” like blockade-targeted Cuba; coup-targeted Venezuela; sanctions-targeted Nicaragua; or far-away countries like US military-occupied and sanctions-targeted Syria. Biden just recently embraced the longstanding Monroe Doctrine of a US sphere of influence by declaring Latin America to be the United States’ “front yard.” When not making sanctimonious public pronouncements, US officials are quietly able to acknowledge the real principles that guide their actions. According to the Washington Post, one US official specializing in Russia “believes the Russians are still interested in a real dialogue.” Russia’s real aim, this official says, is “to see whether Washington is willing to discuss any sort of commitment that constrains U.S. power.”

The official added: “The Russians are waiting to see what we’re going to offer, and they’re going to take it back and decide is this serious. Is this something we [the Russians] can sell as a major victory for security, or is it just, from their point of view, another attempt to fob us off and not give us anything?”

    No I didn’t, and neither did hardly anybody else. And it was really lowering profits and p-ssing them off. However, data showed flu vaccines so nearly useless as to be statistical error. As any idiot could see: if you prevent a cold vector, that specific strain will be far less likely to work. So every competitor will spread instead, rendering the vaccine useless. Every year. 100%. …Don’t worry, Scientists are too retarded to figure it out after 20 years of hard work. Their paychecks depend on it.

    Listen, I’m not young either, but I can read a gol-durned CALENDAR. I know what DECADE is. Young is from – 1966 – that’s SIXTY years ago. As I’ve said before we have COLONELS in office who graduated in Y2K. Your Medical DOCTOR was born before 1996. Do adults really not know how passed on and irrelevant they are?

    Jesus man, get a grip on yourself. Joe Rogan is an old man and he’s HALF Young’s age.

    “I am not censoring anyone.” –Young Yes. Yes you are. You are specifically asking for someone to be censored to the very fullness of your abilities. Instead of believing in people, believing in truth, and believing people will come around to the best information and decision if we talk it out openly. He has lost faith in man, and therefore in freedom. His purpose in life is to prevent other people from doing what he doesn’t like. Now “Get off my lawn!”

    So did he do this to Bossa Nova and the Tijuana Brass? He refused to sell to corrupt record companies during Vietnam or were record companies just so moral and clean then? Uh-huh. Neil Young: another Boomer Canadian Fascist. So. Proud.

    The world bows to me. The world revolves around me. Kill the youth! Don’t let them have a voice on radio those 5 Million dang anti-war terrorists!

    He also has no idea what he’s protesting or objects to. Rogan had Gupta on. Is that what he’s protesting? He won’t say. Or is it Malone? Because the CDC is now approaching convergence with DOCTOR Malone, saying vaccines don’t work, masks don’t work, lock downs don’t work, tests don’t work, and vaccines don’t stop the spread. So Mr. Young is a CDC denier? That’s his real problem? Because Rogan is a CDC PROMOTER for having Gupta on.

    Since we’re now the 100% Covid channel can we switch gears to the economy now that oil is $90 and markets are tanking worldwide? That’s going to kill a lot more people than Covid; but heck — statistically everything kills more people than Covid. According to the CDC. Today anyway. Tomorrow all the science and stats will reverse again and people here will Support/oppose/support/oppose the latest CDC guidance.

    Charts: very bad, moving so fast there’s little point in posting them. Rates: inverting fast, will be obsolete in days. Bonds: garbage. Stocks: garbage. World stocks: far worse. US$: not too good either, but there is the requisite rush to safety out of margin-unprecedented-in-world-history with stock prices/valuations unprecedented-in-world-history. Rates rising: housing and commercial RE tank. Rates rising: drop in stocks. Rates rising: WITH inflation in a stagflationary nightmare that will kill the poor more than they’re already dead, dead, dead.

    The poor will therefore revolt, right now, and are. Past tense. It’s our “Western Spring” where Fed-created rising food prices lead to the toppling of governments NOT to be replaced by Klaus Schwab nor anybody like him. Instead, the complete ineptitude and disbelief in governments, leading to devolution and decentralization. The Unthinkable: People not doing what they’re told! By Neil Young. Our unelected leader of that-which-can-be-said.

    Leading to what? He world does not yet know. Economic theory says screwing with money prices (rates) leads to a terrible and eventually total, all-encompassing “Mis-allocation” of resources. Where we have Playstations out the wazoo and no corn chips. 99% of a car but not enough car to sell. Lots of cars but no gasoline to run them. Plenty of houses but no shingles. Multiply by EVERY. SINGLE. CONSUMER. Good. That’s “Mis-allocation”. The total f—k-up of central planning. Idiots squared, spread widely.

    Problem: since it’s not “oil” that’s our problem, not “corn”, but “Every. Stinking. Thing.” Tractor chips, cold medicine, lettuce, tires, you can’t “Fix it” by opening a N95 mask plant or building a new grain elevator. They’ve f’d EVERYTHING. We need brake pads BUT ONLY Brake pads for the 2011 Malibu and have too many brake pads for the 1999 Toyota. We have too many chocolate bars but no Romaine. Post-it notes and no toilet paper.

    So you tell ME how you “fix the supply chain” in this situation. You can’t. Only honesty, honest money, and an end to market rigging can send the accurate signals to the market again and start fixing how you broke EVERYTHING. And that fix really quite slowly. Years. Decades. While everyone who won on previous market rigging all go dead-broke and fail as that rigging stops.

    There is no solution but honesty and taking your medicine, which Ain’t nobody gonna do. But it’s starting right now whether Powell likes it or not. Remember how “The Fed will never let the market crash” in 1999? They can print money. Or in 2008? Subprime is contained? They can always print money? “They” won’t let it happen? How’d that work out for you?

    And here, rates rising, inverting, recession already begun, “They” are going to stop it this time like Never once beforein history? They CAUSE the crashes, people! with too-low rates raised barely by half. We’ve now had red-line stimulus of too-low rates for DECADES past what the markets should have. We’ve got 8-15% inflation and rates at 1%. Powell is ONE THOUSAND, FIVE HUNDRED basis points behind the curve and rising 100bp a month.

    But I’m sure it’ll all work out fine. Just here, hold this bag for me. Stocks only go up.

    “”… your great-great-great-grandchildren will still be getting immunized against coronavirus…”
    Really? Is that because he thinks I am getting the flu vaccine now? I think I may have received the flu vaccine once or twice in the past 30 years…but it has been so long that I don’t recall when it was. The flu vaccine makes no sense for me, nor for many others. The only time I get a bad case of the flu is when I am badly stressed out…and I don’t always get it then. My asthmatic mother doesn’t usually bother with the flu vaccine.

    So, sure, if my great-great-great-grandchildren are very aged or have many comorbidities they might take a coronavirus vaccine.

    Or, just maybe, very few folks will be taking vaccines because we all learned not to trust big pharma, and learned that vaccines have limitations and humanity never did get a vaccine that worked appropriately for a coronavirus!


    And yet here you are two years later claiming against all CDC evidence and advice that masks and vaccines work.


    those darned kids:

    First of all, I don’t support war mongers. Never have. But you would know that if you paid attention. But you don’t, which is precisely the point of this post.

    Mr. Football Fan himself, who thinks that the guy who had a heart attack at a game last month is some indicator of a larger vaccine problem. Just because you don’t know about something, doesn’t mean it is not a thing. You don’t know what you don’t know.

    There is a cool tool out there to assist you whenever you have the desire to investigate your harebrained thoughts. It is called Google. You can also use any search engine on the internet. These search engines have a handy feature that allows you to search key words during a specific date range. In this case, I googled “fan has heart attack at game” and set the date range from Jan 1, 2011 to Jan 1, 2021. Ain’t that something? Guess what I found? A whole bunch of news articles describing the very thing that you said was so rare and occurring as a result of the vaccine. Mind you, this is a partial list (below). I tried to post it yesterday but forgot to eliminate the http:, so this blog interface sent my post to the black hole. But, lucky for you, I thought I would redo it ( I had a partially saved version in my word processor). The list of articles and examples got so long that I thought I would just post some here and then let you try the new tool I described above. It may save you embarrassment in the future!

    I also came across numerous articles describing the real phenomenon of fans having heart attacks at games- especially games that are important ones, or games that are close in score. Try some of these to make yourself aware of how wrong you were:






    Unfortunately for you, all of these “fans having heart attacks at games” examples occurred before any vaccine was available. Most also happened before any of us ever heard the word Covid.

    I can, and already have, done this same exercise for players with sudden cardiac arrests. But, I encourage you to “do your own research” on that as well.

    You can always lean on me! Maybe it’s time for you to jump ship?

    i guess i’m trying to say the anecdotes are piling up faster than bodies in a midlands morgue.

    i’ve watched football for years (go seagulls!) and never once did i see a match interrupted because a fan needed medical attention from the trainers.

    @sumac.carol, post 99202

    It is my understanding that the organizers of the Canadian truckers convoy are Tamara Lich and D.J. Dichter (as noted on the Truckers Convoy GoFundMe page). Tamara has made a point of distancing herself from Pat King and explicitly stated he is not leading the convoy, though obviously he’s fully participating in it.

    One concern I have is that the MSM, when they do mention the story, state the funding has been frozen – which is not true. Is that a ploy to get people to stop contributing? Donations are currently over $6 million dollars in any case!

    For the first time since covid started, I am feeling a bit of hope. The convoy has also revealed how many of us are in support of freedom and ending all mandates.

    TAE and those who post comments have become a huge support system to me. Thank you all!!


    @Figmund Sreud, post 99208

    Justin Trudeau found a way to hide from the truckers!! He’s isolating for 5 days but I think the truckers will be there longer than that. I wonder how the Canadian government is going to handle this convoy?!

    I was chatting with one of my kids about medical masks vs. cloth masks. So, 10% fewer Covid infections if all are wearing medical masks vs. cloth masks means that…

    In two equal sized groups of people, one wearing cloth masks, one medical masks

    Say 100 of the cloth maskers would get Covid
    And 90 of the medical maskers would get Covid.

    I asked my son: If I were immunocompromised or had comorbidities that made Covid dangerous to me, would I feel significantly safer if I and everyone else were wearing medical masks rather than cloth masks?

    If Covid is super dangerous to me, than that danger is barely mitigated by medical vs. cloth masks. If Covid is a danger to me, I’d best avoid contact with others who might spread Covid to me — which means social isolation or hanging out only with the Covid recovered, non-symptomatic — and Covid vax status is as irrelevant to my safety as the mask that may or may not be worn. Likewise, if Covid is super dangerous to me, it makes sense to use prophylaxes such as vitamin D and zinc, etc., and to get treatment quickly should I contract symptomatic Covid.

    Why is it, I wonder, that so many minds have been hijacked to such an extent that they cannot see and/or follow this logic, cannot arrive at this conclusion?
    (I know, rhetorical question: mass formation is the answer.)

    Because Google is our FRIEND!!
    Out of the generousity of its big corporate heart it gives us free email, free cloud space, free spreadsheets and slides. It keeps our contact lists and calendars and photos safe from loss. Google is our helpful sibling that gives us a free OS for our devices and low cost chromebooks for our schools. It gives us free speech-to-text and listens in on all of our conversations for the “ok Google” cue that we want it to step in and serve us. It tracks where we are at all times, guiding us to our destinations and helping us to track the whereabouts of our loved ones.
    I love my Google sibling.


    Here’s another one: on the trucker’s page of Tamara Linch, they show a clip by Pierre Poilievre, who was one of Prime Minister Harper’s key people. One of Poilievre’s claims to fame was a push to bring “right to work” (ie kill unions) legislation into Canada. Either Linch agrees with Poilievre’s perspectives or she is politically naive in accepting support from someone who happens to agree with the anti-vax perspective but does not agree with her other perspectives. Either way this is not a good sign. I’m guessing Linch is not naive because she is quite politically active:
    I would be the first to line up in support of a leader who was clean.
    Of course truckers are there for their own good reasons; however, in allowing themselves to be aligned with compromised leaders, they are helping to build a leadership platform for these nefarious folks, who will certainly put their new-found high profiles to use.


    Never support a leader. Exploit the movement they claim to represent.

    Christ was from an outdated, disreputable family that was pointedly anti-progressive and had mentally-ill cousins living in the forest. He was Pro-Roman, anti-church and violently pro assault weapon. MLK and Assange were sleeping around. I guess we can’t have political views then, or political allies. Poof: the bad guys win. I don’t do no work; I might get my apron dirty. But it sure is easy to sit on the couch and scold others. I can complain about the work of other men all day so long as I don’t have to do any of my own.

    those darned kids

    just came back from cheering on truckers! so odd – nary a misogynist, racist nor extremist to be found. just nice people (lots of them) hoping that the truckers (very, very many) and their entourage (very many more) can break the will of our burgeoning narcissist-fascist state.

    justin trudeau has forgotten that trucks deliver socks, too.

    absolute galore

    It took the CDC 2 years to figure out N95 masks work better than cloth? Of course not. So it’s curious why they suddenly announce this, during the least deadly variant wave yet. What a crock. It’s actually comical how most people wear their mask. I don’t wear one unless I simply can’t get away with not wearing one, such as work. Even at the height of the pandemic, when shopping I only ever wore a cloth bandana. Science my ass. Truly we’ve become a nation of hysterical retards.
