    Kamala Harris is an absolute tyrant in the making. Terrifying to think that Biden was a Trojan horse for that. Unbelievable that some people still think Trump is worse.

    Not surprised that side affects of the new vaccines are 50x worse. Remember the mRNA is new technology. Big Pharma has been trying to get it to market for 20+ years but consistently failed because of too many bad reactions. They’ve used the overhyped hysteria of sars-cov-2 to pull another Trojan horse con job and foist a shit technology on us serfs.

    And Peru is absolutely correct to resist the corporate immunity. Frankly, there is no way that Big Pharma should have immunity for their poisons and sick experiments anywhere in the world. It is embarrassing that only 3rd World nations still seem to understand this.

    Seen first at TAE 😉


    District Judge Vanessa Baraitser has rejected #Assange’s bail application and has decided he will remain as a remand prisoner until the conclusion of the appeal proceedings.

    Hmmm… is it correct to assume that the name The Automatic Earth comes from Paul Simon’s lyrics in The Boy in the Bubble?

    John Day

    @madamski, “The Automatic Earth” moniker has only ever occurred in “The Boy In The Bubble” and the name of this blog, as far as I can tell.
    I assumed, when I first saw the blog, spring 2008, that the name came from the song. All my allusions to the song in this blog, over the years have passed without contrary comment.
    Here is something different for saving COVID ravaged lungs, from the listserv. (By the way, I am directing the attention of the group to this blog, and yes, I intended “@ The Automatic Earth” to be my reference, when I said “2 days ago”. That same story did appear on the listserv, but in French.)

    Miami Beach doctor recovering from COVID-19 after taking new drug

    It looked like Elgozy may need a lung transplant. At one point, he was scheduled to undergo a double lung transplant.
    That’s when his doctor thought of RLF-100 (aviptadil), a game-changing drug. A doctor who is leading the trial at Johns Hopkins University is seeing promising results.
    “With the drug, we saw a 70% or greater survival,” said NeuroRX CEO Dr. Jonathan Javitt, “but in these patients who have no alternative, who have very little to look forward to, we believe the experience that was seen in Houston and seen now around the country.”

    John Day

    More on Aviptadil:
    Initial data from an US expanded access (EA) use of RLF-100™ (aviptadil) in 90 ICU patients with critical COVID-19 and severe comorbidities point to a 72% survival 28 days after initial treatment.

    John Day

    Vasoactive Intestinal Polypeptide (VIP), the active ingredient in aviptadil been shown in more than 100 peer-reviewed studies to have potent anti-inflammatory/anti-cytokine activity in animal models of respiratory distress, acute lung injury, and inflammation. Most importantly, 70% of the VIP in the body is bound to a rare cell in the lung, the alveolar type 2 cell, that is critical to transmission of oxygen to the body. VIP has a 20-year history of safe use in humans in multiple human trials for sarcoidosis, pulmonary fibrosis, asthma/allergy, and pulmonary hypertension.

    Denying Assange’s bail is another travesty of justice.

    District Judge Vanessa Baraitser has rejected #Assange’s bail application and has decided he will remain as a remand prisoner until the conclusion of the appeal proceedings.

    I’m mortified.

    In theory at least, in specific circumstances (e.g. where the impartiality of a judge is claimed), a case can be referred to the highest court in the land, namely the House of Lords. That might be a way forward although I’ve no idea how that’s done and maybe it doesn’t apply to an Australian citizen.

    At the start of the pandemic in January, Wuhan was under a full lockdown and cut off from any outside resources for nearly three months. During this time, world leaders and health officials began questioning when exactly Wuhan and the rest of China knew about this particular disease, often described as a pneumonia-like respiratory illness.

    This might be the breakthrough coronavirus cure we’ve been waiting for
    By Chris Smith @chris_writes
    August 3rd, 2020
    A potential coronavirus cure that can reduce recovery time and prevent COVID-19 complications is now in Phase 2/3 testing.
    The drug is called RLF-100 or aviptadil, and it also received emergency use authorization in the US for the treatment of critically ill COVID-19 patients.
    RLF-100 has already saved the lives of multiple patients experiencing severe COVID-19 complications, but the companies are yet to publish the scientific data that would show its efficacy and safety.

    Erectile dysfunction drug aviptadil may also treat Covid-19, experts believe
    Aviptadil has been fast-tracked into clinical trials in the US since June
    Early results show patients have come off ventilators in three to four days
    The drug is a synthetic form of a natural peptide in the body called VIP
    It’s shown to prevent inflammation and stop replication of the virus in lung cells

    Assange was denied bail because he’s a flight risk? How on earth does that make sense?

    The Boy in the Bubble has strong lyrics, not something I really like Paul Simon for. But this one does. Sometimes wish we’d picked a shorter name 13 years ago, but what can you do?

    Vaccination numbers are low in North Carolina, so the governor called in the National Guard to get more “needles into arms.” Could this be practice for when vaccinations are mandatory?

    Most N.C. Nursing Home Workers Are Refusing COVID Vaccine
    “North Carolina’s top public health official said Tuesday that most nursing home workers are refusing to take coronavirus vaccines being offered in a state that has now become one of the slowest in the nation to get doses into peoples’ arms.

    “The N.C. National Guard has started to form six-member “immunization strike teams” that will travel the state to work at COVID-19 vaccine sites “to help North Carolina get needles into arms,” Brig. Gen. Jeff Copeland said Tuesday…

    The National Guard teams are expected to work at least into April, working down the list of groups as they become eligible, Copeland said.

    Copeland said the teams will work in urban areas with large medical facilities as well as in underserved rural areas…

    Teams will consist of two combat medics and four administrative support members, Copeland said, with the medics administering the shots and the support staff entering patient information into computers and managing logistics.

    The real Boy In The Bubble (not John Travolta) was bubbled for having essentially no immune system at birth. He was bubbled under the auspices of my med school, UT Houston, which had quite an immunology department and studied AIDS very intently (Houston social scene facilitated that). I was there from 1982-1986, critical early years. I never went and saw the boy in the bubble. He died after a bone marrow transplant failed to give him an immune system.

    So the British Tabloids (you saw it at TAE) discovered ivermectin for COVID day before yesterday?
    “Got lice and worms but not COVID?” style.
    Maybe this new viral strain with modified spike protein which the vaccines don’t target properly?
    Wait! … They are saying to double down on vaccines PRONTO, because they don’t work against this one? Where could a rationale like THAT possibly arise? (Thanks again to c19D list)
    “Right now that strain does appear to be prevalent in South America and Brazil, the two parts of the world, right now, that are in their summer, but also experiencing a very dense epidemic, and that’s concerning.
    The South African variant is also known as 501.V2, and in mid-December officials reported that 501.V2 had been largely replacing other strains of the coronavirus as early as November.


    Teams will consist of two combat medics and four administrative support members, Copeland said, with the medics administering the shots and the support staff entering patient information into computers and managing logistics.

    You need 4 administrators for 1 flu shot. Boy, do I like the sound of that…

    “Combat medics”. Boy oh boy.

    Albert Einstein College of Medicine virologist Kartik Chandran tells The Scientist in an email that it would also be useful to investigate cell-mediated immunity, which is a response driven by T cells and may be less sensitive to mutations in the spike protein than the neutralizing antibody response is.

    Like the UK variant, scientists suspect that 501.V2 is more infectious than other strains of SARS-CoV-2 are, as it has rapidly become dominant in the country’s coastal areas. Lessells says he expects the variant will quickly become dominant in Johannesburg, the country’s largest city, and the surrounding provinces.

    South Africa is currently experiencing a resurgence of the virus with new cases and deaths rising rapidly, surpassing what the country experienced in its first surge in late July.


    Over a decade ago I stumbled on late Joe Bageant’s essay starting with (I am paraphrasing): “Does any fair minded person thinks that Clinton, Kissinger, (and few others) are normal people?”. I could not help thinking that actually
    half of the country thinks that Clinton is, and that good part has no an idea who the Kissinger was.
    Tulsi’s one-two punch, allegedly, knocked Kamala out of primaries but that video is like rain soaked and wrinkled sign

    Not sure if proles prostrating themselves in voter fraud activities are aware that she, first, would throw them under the bus if, God forbid, heavy hand of law start doing it’s job.

    January 6, 2021 . Supposed to be a real big day. Will it be ?

    If Team Trump feeds its supporters nothing but another nothing burger on the much hyped January 6 Wild Times Rally in DC , then I think a lot of them are going to puke him out. At the very least there must be the release of heretofore hush-hush information about the so-called Black Hats. Deeds must be exposed, names must be spoken, the fucking details must be detailed.
    If that doesn’t happen, after four years of promises to drain the swamp, and at a crucial moment when the eyes of the world are laser focused on that singular event in Washington . . . then that’s that. Between now and the day when the Trump Presidency constitutionally ends (Jan 20) there is no better time to present his case to the world and capture public opinion. No better venue for staging an end-run around media censorship, and delivering the truth directly to the people of the world (and America in particular) about how the cheaters are cheating them, and who the cheaters really are (by name).
    Can we the people fix this mess with that information ? Maybe, maybe not. But one things is certain : that without that information (and/or with a Black Hat controlled White House, Senate and House of Representatives) the people of the United States are headed straight into a bloody civil war, which can only or ever spill round the world.


    Back on the 4th @ D Benton Smith made a post that ran under the radar. I’ll quote a piece:

    “So-called “messenger” RNA takes a bit of genetic code and places it in the cell’s DNA so that every time that cell replicates itself the “newly revised” DNA is replicated right along with it. Like, forever. Or at least until that line of cells dies out completely . As in “end of the line”. A typical vaccine delivers a few billion of those little makers in one go. Allowing an average of 7 days between human cell divisions, and just thumb-nail the arithmetic for how long it takes for the recipient to be a whole new and improved version of themselves, the version with permanently modified DNA throughout their organism..”

    Nobody refuted or pushed back against this so I did a little google surf riff and ran across this from 2011:

    “The dependence of viral RNA replication on co-opted host factors”

    Now, one would have to have spent a good portion of one’s life to know all the acronyms used and their context in the grand scheme of all things that are biological. I do not pretend to understand but a tiny portion of this paper. But I did come away with a profound feeling (again and forever!) for how immense and complex this thing we call life is. And as I have oft said, we are just dancing around up here on the surface.

    @ kultsommer

    Electoral politics being a team sport, and such being entirely about winning (at virtually any cost), our ability to blind ourselves to the sins of ‘our guys’, if it means that we ‘win’, means that everyone loses in the end.

    We tell ourselves that they’re only cheating in order to win by going along to get along, and that once they obtain sufficient leverage, they’ll right the wrongs.

    When that doesn’t happen, we hide behind whatever resistance the losing team is still able to provide. ‘He wanted to but Congress wouldn’t let him’, etc. I’m sure we all know this. I just have a compulsion to articulate things. Sort of my own mental flea circus.


    @ Raul

    Paul Simon always tries to keep his lyrics light, not in terms of superficial topics but in avoiding ‘pontifics’ or anything coming across as too preachy. You see this in The Boy in the Bubble lyrics. He doesn’t point moral fingers but he aptly describes things that give reason to make us cry like babies and question the morality of our culture.

    Your man, Dylan, after his early preachy years, was able to do the same thing lyrically but still swing the bat with heavy gravitas.

    Dylan on a topic:

    Father of Night

    Simon on same topic:

    The Afterlife

    Leonard Cohen, with limited musicality but profound verbal insight, produced less material than Dylan and Simon, but when he truly nailed something, he outshone either of them. I let Anthony sing it here rather than Cohen because Anthony does for this Cohen song something like what Hendrix did with Dylan’s All Along the Watchtower::

    CSPAN just showed a photo from inside the House where folks have guns drawn. As a constant CSPAN watcher- I don’t know what camera that was. (It’s a “thing” with cspanners.)

    “1100 national guard will be deployed [Virginia?].

    They have shown no outside violence, but there are “Trump people” who are standing off with cops on the steps of the Capitol.
    I find it hard to believe a “protestor” could enter the Senate chambers without being allowed in.
