WES, good question, I looked for an update and couldn’t find one.
These graphs show results from the original study, with negative efficiency (more likely for the vaxxed to get infected) during the first 13 days after the first injection, and efficiency dipping back into negative territory at month 7.

So every TV doctor (and probably your doctor) is pushing this idea of getting your antibodies to the spike boosted, which we know is the great con.
So far the good news is that the booster vax rate has dropped off about 50% since it peaked last Friday or so.
MSM is going to be relentless in trying to condition people into getting the booster.
This video is over a year old now, but has a lot of good info. One thing he mentions is that half the population was opposed to the vax at the time. Many caved, but are ready to call BS this time around.
At the (8:27) mark,
“The press has reported we have memory Bcells & Tcells in response to corona viruses, so our bodies will remember how to be immune to these corona viruses w/o having to carry around antibodies to everything we have been exposed to. In expressing those proteins all the time that would be metabolically unsustainable, it’s not how human bodies work.”December 9, 2021 at 9:57 pm #94798
Very mild for people who were vaccinated.
1. Detected because a vaccinated someone with a drippy nose was terrified that they had covid and showed up at the hospital for a test.
2. Someone, paranoid, at the hospital, decided to do extra testing and obtained a blood sample for a DNA test .
3. After much studying, someone decided that the covid was in the blood sample but that it was deformed in some 50 places.
4. Therefore, the birth of Omicron.
1. Omicron give very mild symptoms
2. Without going to the hospital for a DNA blood test, there is no way of knowing if you have a drippy nose because of Omicron
3.Nobody has a prepared speech about Omicron which could make the vaccines irrelevant, and useless.December 9, 2021 at 10:03 pm #94799

Fear’s the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why
Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now
Some may come and some may go
He will surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment’s sunlight
Fading in the grass
Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now
If you hear the song I sing
You will understand, listen
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both

Yes, Bitcoin. Bitcoin will be the catalyst that accelerates the demise of the USD because it easily crosses borders and cannot be confiscated. Even if Russia had not already developed a SWIFT alternative, Bitcoin is a secure SWIFT alternative.
Gold will eventually have its day in the sun, but only when it gets out from under the thumb of the USD banking system. When that day comes, it will go up at least 50x overnight. Until then, it will languish close to production value.
Bitcoin maximalists claim that Bitcoin will replace the USD as the world’s reserve asset. That might happen, but gold has a huge advantage: Central banks hold gold, but not bitcoin. And they hold it in a manner that is relatively evenly distributed according to the size of their economies. That means if there is a reset and gold replaces the dollar as the premier reserve asset, the transition to the next system is relatively smooth and stable, because everyone comes out on the other side in the same position relative to one another.
The transition is inevitable, like a long overdue earthquake. It needs a catalyst. Bitcoin can be that catalyst. The banking system cannot control the Bitcoin price like they can for gold. If more countries like El Salvador move into Bitcoin, then game theory teaches that everyone has to follow. Otherwise you end up unbalanced when the day of reckoning arrives.
People talk about the hyperinflation of the USD. But the key feature of hyperinflation is not just the sudden lack of confidence in a currency. It’s the sudden lack of confidence combined with the availability of an obvious better alternative. In Argentina, that means pesos for dollars. In Venezuela, that means bolivars for dollars. In Weimar, it meant any hard currency instead of the mark. Before Bitcoin, there was no obvious better alternative to the USD for most people (and, more importantly, for large institutions like pension funds and life insurance companies). Most people have never bought a gold coin, and would not know how to recognize a genuine coin from a counterfeit. They would be worried: “Is this real or fake? Too much risk, I’ll just keep my dollars.” There has not been a better alternative. Pension funds might like the idea of gold, but nobody wants to store it. And why bother if the banks keep the thumb on the price? So the problem if that even though everyone can see the USD’s days are numbered, there’s nowhere to go.
Bitcoin changes that. Now there is somewhere to go, and it does not require investing in a huge vault. Pension funds that do not want to hold negative yielding sovereign debt? Now there is an alternative, a digital alternative, right at your fingertips. Bitcoin is the escape from the system. The only escape. It is the catalyst that can bring the system down.
If it succeeds, I do not think that necessarily means that Bitcoin becomes the new reserve asset. I think gold might step into that role. The central banks would rather see gold step into that role than Bitcoin because they are already invested in gold. The US would rather see gold step into that role than Bitcoin because so much of the world’s gold is held in New York, meaning that it is de facto controlled by the US, even if it is owned by other countries.
So yes, I am a Bitcoin proponent, because I think it has an important role to play as a catalyst to whatever comes next, and I am eager to get to a more honest, less corrupt world.December 10, 2021 at 12:40 am #94806
I forgot to post this here earlier today, and there’s another picture of the structure-under-construction, with a human for scale https://www.johndayblog.com/2021/12/omicron-christmas-present.html
Salient features of the Omicron variant include it’s mildness, with no deaths yet attributed, unlike “vaccines”, which are slaughtering trusting souls worldwide.
There are now many cases verified of Omicron worldwide, two (2) of them in unvaccinated persons, though that number might eventually grow to 3 or 4 in time.
The media and drug companies will not say that this is a virus which only infects the “vaccinated”.
They will not say that.
They say, “We’ll have specialized Omicron vaccines for you faster than ever, but get a booster right away, a fourth booster for some of you”.
You need to get another “experimental vaccine” shot now, that makes you more vulnerable to infection for the month after you get it, and a little less vulnerable for the next 2 months, and might kill you, to protect you from this new variant, which infects just the “vaccinated”, and is apparently much safer than any of the vaccines being sold or proposed for accelerated emergency rollout.
Friends, the safest vaccine ever is coming to your town completely free of charge this Christmas season.
You will only “need” it if your immune system has been weakened by the first 2-3 injections, and primed for “Antibody Dependent Enhancement” (of viral pathogenicity) by those shots.
Don’t worry if you’re not sure whether you need it or not.
If you don’t need it, you can’t get it.
Am I overstating the case for Omicron variant being the best and final vaccine to COVID, the end of the “pandemic”?
Compare me to Pfizer and Moderna executives and Tony Fauci, please.
Watch this unfold…
Healthcare Chief Says Omicron “May Signal the End of COVID-19”
Slams “panic” generated by exaggerated fears over severity of variant.
The CEO of South Africa’s largest private healthcare network says that the Omicron variant is “so mild” that it “may signal the end of COVID-19.”
According to Richard Friedland, chief executive officer of Netcare Ltd., the early days of the variant suggest there is absolutely no need to panic and that it might actually be a good thing.
Norwegian COVID Experts Says Omicron Could Provide “Best Scenario” of “Natural Immunity”
Variant is likely to be “both very mild and very transmissible.”
The country’s state epidemiologist Frode Forland was responding to news of the biggest Omicron outbreak outside of South Africa, which occurred at an Oslo Christmas party.December 10, 2021 at 12:41 am #94807
This is supposed to be scary, because you can’t see a thing coming that will make you somewhat tired and achy for 3 days, like a regular-cold.
It’s the new regular-cold. You might not see it coming. If you catch it, you’ll develop “natural immunity”.
Scientists find ‘stealth’ version of Omicron that may be harder to track
Variant lacks feature that allows probable cases to be distinguished among positive PCR tests
So it could actually have done some good, after all?
Professor Says Cop26 Climate Change Summit Could Have Been Omicron Super Spreader Event
This paints Pfizer “vaccination” in the most-favorable-light possible, and looks at mostly Delta variant cases. Another booster slightly reduced the odds of catching Delta among “previously fully vaccinated” Israelis for a couple of months, after being “negative-protection” for the first month..
(Those who died from “vaccination” did not enter the airport, or the data set.)
Israel national airport is a unique setting, where the Vaccinated and Unvaccinated individuals all have to test, which allows a more objective assessment of both the booster and Green Pass efficacy in preventing infections. The analysis suggests that the positivity rate (number of cases divided by number of tests) among the Vaccinated cohort throughout August-October is only 1.54-fold smaller than the one among the Unvaccinated cohort (about 35% relative protection). More specifically, compared to the Unvaccinated group, the Vaccinated group has a significantly higher positivity rate during the month of August, then in September it shows a 3.45-fold smaller positivity rate (71% relative protection), and this protection decreases to 2.66-fold (62% protection) during October. The analysis suggests that the relative protection of the booster shot against infection is likely to be significantly smaller than the initial estimates of 10-11-fold (over 90%) reported by the MOH, probably around 60% at best.

Yes, this says that viral adaptation to a population with antibodies from “vaccines” will lead to viral escape from those antibodies, which allows the escape-variants to spread in that population.
By tracking the evolutionary trajectories of vaccine-resistant mutations in more than 2.2 million SARS-CoV-2 genomes, we reveal that the occurrence and frequency of vaccine-resistant mutations correlate strongly with the vaccination rates in Europe and America. We anticipate that as a complementary transmission pathway, vaccine-breakthrough or antibody-resistant mutations, like those in Omicron, will become a dominating mechanism of SARS-CoV-2 evolution when most of the world’s population is either vaccinated or infected.
“Breakthrough” cases among the “fully vaccinated” keep rising over time in Germany, with high viral loads and household transmission rates, but no posting of whether the vaccinated are more or less likely to catch “symptomatic COVID” than the unvaccinated.
The UK does provide that data….
In Germany, the rate of symptomatic COVID-19 cases among the fully vaccinated (“breakthrough infections”) is reported weekly since 21. July 2021 and was 16.9% at that time among patients of 60 years and older []. This proportion is increasing week by week and was 58.9% on 27. October 2021 (Figure 1) providing clear evidence of the increasing relevance of the fully vaccinated as a possible source of transmission.
A similar situation was described for the UK. Between week 39 and 42, a total of 100.160 COVID-19 cases were reported among citizens of 60 years or older. 89.821 occurred among the fully vaccinated (89.7%), 3.395 among the unvaccinated (3.4%) []. One week before, the COVID-19 case rate per 100.000 was higher among the subgroup of the vaccinated compared to the subgroup of the unvaccinated in all age groups of 30 years or more. (and it still is)
This unprecedented partnership between global pharmaceutical corporations and your appointed public servants will get a new Omicron-specific, untested, experimental vaccine to you before you can say “Jack Robinson”, before you can even think about it.
Don’t Wait! Act Now!

Here is the underlying physical reality, again: This reality informs elite policies of rigidly controlling people, which we currently see being imposed more and more harshly.
Whilst prosperity is, of necessity, a material concept, money is a human artefact, validated by its use as a medium of exchange. It has value only in terms of the things for which it can be traded. This means that money has no intrinsic worth, but commands value only as a ‘claim’ on those material goods and services for which it can be exchanged.
Conventional economics tries to circumvent this hard reality with the notion that [financial] demand creates [physical] supply. The fallacious logic here is that, so long as there’s enough financial demand for something, the availability of material supply will somehow follow automatically.
Where finite resources – such as low-cost energy – are concerned, this simply doesn’t work.
We can’t create something that doesn’t exist in nature, simply by putting up its price.
This is why we can’t spend (“stimulate”) our way to material prosperity, any more than we can borrow our way to solvency, or “invest” (meaning monetize) our way to environmental sustainability.
What we’re seeing here is a widening gap between the economy as it is and the economy as we choose to see and present it.
In essence, we’ve been creating apparent increases in economic activity (using expansions in credit and other liabilities) without creating much material economic value.
Charles Hugh Smith:
Long cycles operate at such a glacial pace they’re easily dismissed as either figments of fevered imagination or this time it’s different.
But since Nature and human nature remain stubbornly grounded by the same old dynamics, cycles eventually turn and the world changes dramatically. Nobody thinks the cyclical turn is possible until it’s already well underway.
Multiple long cycles are turning in unison:
1. The cycle of interest rates: down for 40+ years (last turn, 1981), now up for an unknown but consequential period of time.
2. The cycle of inflation / deflation: the 40-year period of low real-world inflation and rip-roaring speculative debt-asset inflation has ended and now an era of scarcity, real-world inflation and speculative debt-asset deflation begins.
3. The cycle of capital-labor balance: capital has dominated labor for 40+ years, siphoning $50 trillion from labor. This cycle has now turned and the rebalancing is underway: it’s capital’s turn to surrender gains and power.
4. The cycle of social order-disorder: as documented by historian Peter Turchin and others, social order (in Turchin’s phrase, the integrative phase) holds sway for about 50 years and then it gives way to an era of social disorder (the disintegrative phase). This phase doesn’t end with mild reforms nobody even notices, it ends with a rebalancing of social, political and economic power.
Charles has a new book out, looking at this.
Can Any Nation-State Survive the Era of Inequality and Scarcity?
We have an extraordinary opportunity to transform our unsustainable “waste is growth” economy and toxic inequality to sustainable systems that optimize well-being rather than collapse.
The possibility that the United States could fragment is no longer a marginalized topic. Maps displaying various post-U.S. regional configurations accompany essays exploring how and why a break-up of the U.S. would be a solution to regional and ideological polarization, for example, Max Borders’ recent article, Dear America: It’s Time to Break Up.
But two forces larger than political polarization may fragment nation-states across the globe, including the U.S.: inequality and scarcity.
Inequality and corruption go hand in hand, of course, as the wealthiest few influence the state to protect their monopolies and backstop their speculative gains…
Nations which want to not just survive but emerge stronger have one path: a revolutionary transformation from “waste is growth” to degrowth, from an economy and state dominated by a parasitic elite to a strictly limited parasitic elite and from abject dependence on fragile supply chains originating in other nations to decentralized, localized independence for essentials.

The US Dollar is the dominant global reserve currency for international trade and finance.
Nothing lasts forever, certainly not global reserve currencies.
There is not much trust in global finance, and though there is much talk of Bitcoin, or something like it, becoming a global financial currency, it depends completely on a universally functioning internet to acknowledge each and every transaction. No internet, no deal. No internet, no Bitcoin-existence.
Gold has always worked in the past. These are not trusting times in the world.
If the $US is demoted to another-fiat-currency, or if all currencies must suddenly be backed by gold, much discipline will be imposed upon all governments, especially the US. It is not really clear how much gold the US Treasury actually holds. Most of it is in melted coinage, not pure gold fair-trade bars.
“Gold” is about to become GOLD on New Year’s Day. Thanks Eleni.
Tom Luongo (much edited for brevity)
In short my conclusion was similar to that of Alistair MacLeod’s and others, that Basel III should collapse the egregious manipulation of the gold market through the use of using futures and unallocated gold as bank reserves…
So, Basel III is coming to destroy the paper gold markets and destroy the money center banks in New York and London while setting the stage to bail out the euro-zone. Higher gold prices are the answer to all of these things. Think of it this way, in a world where debt assets are failing and new private forms of custodial assets are rising in mindshare [bitcoin and crypto], what’s the only real weapon the central banks have to maintain credibility?
Their gold reserves…
Remember the entire Great Reset rests on Davos destroying the current banking system and rolling it up to the central banks, cutting out the classic two-track monetary system with the commercial bankers being the transmission mechanism...
Davos’ agenda has failed on Capitol Hill, despite winning battles all across Europe and in the English Commonwealth. Those countries are now dead letters until their current governments are overthrown or the people throw off their shackles… not likely.
Despite the market jitters because of the necessary reallocation to global capital, Powell and the Fed now have to pursue tight monetary policy to force the ECB into openly inflationary policy. This will further trash the euro and finally overwhelm the ECB’s bond buying to the point where rates there start rising...
Europe is Davos’ power base. That power looks tenuous at best in a geopolitical sense. The best way for it to reassert what power it has left over the U.S. is forcing a massive revaluation in the price of gold while preparing Europe for further federalization, debt default and population reduction…
So far in 2021, through September, according to the World Gold Council, central banks have purchased 385.4 tonnes of gold, after adding Singapore’s numbers but not Ireland’s…
But, as I said throughout this piece, it is the players who are doing this now that matters. Earlier Japan made headlines, adding 80.8 tonnes in March. Then Poland began a very Russian monthly buying program in May. Now Singapore is on board trying to offset US dollar strength with gold in an inflationary environment.

How Many People in NYC Are At Risk of Losing Their Job Over the Mayor’s Vaccine Mandate?

According to Joe Borelli, NYC Council Minority Leader, 45% of blacks, 40% of whites, and 30% of Hispanics will be ineligible and legally barred from working in New York City in 20 days.

[Borelli’s numbers? At most, about 9% of the city and 18% of the workers are impacted. The count is less because only 10.8% are not vaccinated at all. That’s still a lot of people though.]

Bitcoin will be the catalyst that accelerates the demise of the USD because it easily crosses borders and cannot be confiscated. Even if Russia had not already developed a SWIFT alternative, Bitcoin is a secure SWIFT alternative.
It’s a relatively elementary level thing for TPTB to destroy bitcoin, if they want to, CCP has already done that in China.
All that has to happen is a “War on Crypto” be declared, for say like terrorists/cartels washing their illicit funds with it (which they are already doing) & declared a menace to the “free” world, then bomb all mining/transaction computer centers into dust ~ Not to mention blocking internet access, another trivial event…
Sure, you’re holding a bitcoin token, but how are you going to redeem it?
Not saying it’s 100% certain, but does anyone think the western powers couldn’t stop it, if they wanted to?

Back in September you wrote the A to Z piece, and there you mentioned that lecithin improves quercetin absorption by up to 20x. So I ordered some lecithin. I planned to keep it on hand with my quercetin, so that I could take both together at the first sign of any Covid symptoms.
Since then I have reading up on other benefits of quercetin, and there has been some research into whether quercetin might lower blood pressure, but it seems that research has been inconclusive. I thought to myself: I bet they didn’t try taking it with lecithin.
Two weeks ago, I decided to experiment by taking quercetin and lecithin on a daily basis. Almost immediately my daily blood pressure numbers dropped significantly. Like somebody flipped a switch. Over the two weeks,my average morning systolic numbers dropped by 10, on average, and diastolic dropped by 7, on average, compared to the two weeks before.
My doctor told me last year to start thinking about taking tablets, but I have resisted that, looking to make lifestyle changes first, and perhaps try a natural solution instead of a purely pharmaceutical solution. Some other things have helped, but not as dramatically as what I have seen in two weeks.
Anyway, thanks for the lecithin tip.December 10, 2021 at 2:24 am #94819Susmarie108Participant

Chooch – thanks for manning the sharp end. Your pushback on your employer is right and righteous. I admire your fight while I am taking a slower, more guarded approach w/mine. They mandated the vax back in July, and I sent a shot across the bow with a strongly worded document (it was a little over the top, I was f*ing pissed.) ADE. VAERS. Safety. I knew no corporate lawyer in their right mind was going to touch that document with a 10-foot pole.
Whether or not it made any difference, the company has been walking back some of the rules. Both vaxxed and unvaxxed have to mask or test. I have been granted a religious exemption. Exemption has a time limit (huh?!?) and don’t know if they will renew it, or tell me and my co-religionists to GTFO, but “whatever” at this point. Our PMC’s mandated the vax and I suspect they got a lot more pushback than they expected, including the people that have to actually carry out their rules and run the damn business. I’d love to be a fly on the wall at some of those meetings.
At the moment, I am winning-by-not-losing (hat tip to Dr. John Day.) I can deal with a mask rule for now. I don’t know how this thing is going to work out, but I am taking it day by day. I thank my lucky stars to not be in Austria. I don’t have an exit plan, but I feel confident the triple-soon-to-be-quad-vaxxed don’t have a plan either.

“They then, with the exception of a few malcontents, proceed to allow themselves to be regimented, coerced, deranged in all the environments of their lives, and turned into a solid manufactory of destruction toward whatever other people may have, in the appointed scheme of things, come within the range of the Government’s disapprobation.”
Bourne characterized this transformation as essentially a reversion to bestial instincts: the regression of a society into a herd.
“Animals crowd together for protection, and men become most conscious of their collectivity at the threat of war. Consciousness of collectivity brings confidence and a feeling of massed strength, which in turn arouses pugnacity and the battle is on. In civilized man, the gregarious impulse acts not only to produce concerted action for defense, but also to produce identity of opinion. Since thought is a form of behavior, the gregarious impulse floods up into its realms and demands that sense of uniform thought which wartime produces so successfully.”
This collectivist herd spirit is what Bourne calls “the State.” In peacetime, the State is relegated to the background of national life. “With the shock of war, however, the State comes into its own again.” Bourne continues:
“The citizen throws off his contempt and indifference to Government, identifies himself with its purposes, revives all his military memories and symbols, and the State once more walks, an august presence, through the imaginations of men.”
This is what Bourne meant when he famously wrote, “War is the health of the State.” And the State is very health conscious. It will not readily countenance an end to a war that nourishes it. So anti-war sentiments and expressions will not be tolerated while the War State is riding high. Again, Bourne wearily speaks from experience:
“The State is a jealous God and will brook no rivals. Its sovereignty must pervade everyone and all feeling must be run into the stereotyped forms of romantic patriotic militarism which is the traditional expression of the State herd-feeling. (…) In this great herd-machinery, dissent is like sand in the bearings. The State ideal is primarily a sort of blind animal push towards military unity. Any interference with that unity turns the whole vast impulse towards crushing it.”
This is a very poignant passage considering that as he wrote it, Bourne himself was being crushed in just the way he describedDecember 10, 2021 at 3:29 am #94823

This music is in my Soul. Am thinking it is in yours as well.
My soul is full of music, saved up for dark times & troubles. I often forget to call upon it, like an old sage it always changes my perspective for the good…

The same leftist mob that canceled Dr. Suess is forcing sexually explicit content onto children as young as four.
A concerned mother told her school board, “Who normalizes sex acts between fourth graders? I’ll tell you who. Pedophiles.”
Sexual harassment, especially of minors is ILLEGAL (last we time checked).December 10, 2021 at 8:21 am #94832

>>But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.<<
I’ve learned that the hard way… but I have learned it. However, I still share because I think it is the right thing to do. I’m actually trying to put information into people’s hands that will significantly help them (maybe even enable their family line not to end, once and for all, in autistic or cancerous children), and most responses are negative towards me. It is what it is, and, frankly, the whole Fe-ar aspect associated with toxic metallic iron filing overload triggering NLRP3 to generate “Fe-ar” inside the cell may just explain it.
Such people are really victims, but the effect of their victimization is toxic to everyone around them.
It is absolutely DIABOLICAL…
I literally look at iron fortified phoods as the main mechanistic driver of the “spirit of the anti-christ” (aka, narcissism) that is said to rule the day in the “end-times.”
I can’t describe the level of bizarre that I feel when friends pray over their iron fortified, anti-christ spirit promoting phoods… I really can’t.
One friend younger than me just passed from her iron overload just last week… and the family has been loading up on iron-fortified phoods in their grief! And, yes, they KNOW my view on it, and why I believe it!
No science fiction movie does reality justice, IMHO…
