American science reporter, Alex Berenson, posted a tweet claiming cases in Israel are doubling about every two days. Our world in data claims Israel is one of the most vaccinated countries on earth at 64.14% (having received at least one dose). Berenson’s comments:
“Back in Israel the vaccines are working so great that cases are doubling every three days. ExPONEnShuL!
The two major possible explanations are:
A) The vaccines are failing
B) They aren’t failing but the government is pretending they are to scare teens into getting vaccinated…”

Pfizer, Moderna Vaccines May Stand Guard Against COVID for Years (USNews)
This article, linked above by Raúl, is yet another example of the slanted media coverage with an obvious agenda. According to the article, the positive effects of the vaccines could last “for years to come.” But for the unvaccinated who had a Covid infection, there was only “at least eight months” of immunity. And for those who had a Covid infection and later got vaccinated, “immunity might last years, possibly a lifetime.”
The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines trigger an immune system response that could fend off the coronavirus for years to come, new research reveals… “It’s a good sign for how durable our immunity is from this vaccine,” Ali Ellebedy, an immunologist at Washington University in St. Louis, who led the study, told The New York Times… Last month, Ellebedy and his colleagues reported that immune cells that recognize the virus lingered in bone marrow for at least eight months after COVID-19 infection. Another team found that memory B-cells continue to mature and strengthen for at least a year after infection, the Times reported. Those findings suggested that immunity might last years, possibly a lifetime, in people who were infected and later vaccinated.
However, the earlier study mentioned in the article, published last month in Nature (and peer-reviewed, unlike this new study about vaccines which was rushed to publication as an “Accelerated Article Preview”), showed that “People who recover from mild COVID-19 have bone-marrow cells that can churn out antibodies for decades,” as described in a Nature article titled “Had COVID? You’ll probably make antibodies for a lifetime.”
So I wonder, why is the immunity resulting from a Covid infection being downplayed, and the lesser protection resulting from the vaccines being hyped up? And why was this new study rushed to publication after last month’s article about long-lasting post-infection immunity (obtained without vaccines)?
I looked at the study report for funding sources and conflicts of interests, and the “Competing Interests” section includes these tidbits:
One of the co-authors is on an advisory board for Moderna, another co-author’s lab gets funding from Moderna, and yet another co-author is currently consulting for Pfizer, and this co-author’s lab is “also collaborating with Pfizer on animal models of SARS-CoV-2.”June 29, 2021 at 9:57 pm #78582

Excerpt from Snowden today
in democracies today, what is important to an increasing many is not what rights and freedoms are recognized, but what beliefs are respected: what history, or story, undergirds their identities as citizens, and as members of religious, racial, and ethnic communities. It’s this replacement-function of false conspiracies — the way they replace unified or majoritarian histories with parochial and partisan stories — that prepares the stage for political upheaval.June 29, 2021 at 11:03 pm #78585
FBI Fabrication Against Assange Falls Apart
From Craig Murray, one of the few members of the public allowed in the courtroom during Julian Assange’s extradition hearing:
What had happened was this. The hearings on the Assange extradition in January 2020 did not seem to be going well for the US government. The arguments that political extradition is specifically banned by the UK/US extradition treaty, and that the publisher was not responsible for Chelsea Manning’s whistleblowing on war crimes, appeared to be strong. The US Justice Department had decided that it therefore needed a new tack and to discover some “crimes” by Assange that seemed less noble than the Manning revelations.
To achieve this, the FBI turned to an informant in Iceland, Sigi Thordarson, who was willing to testify that Assange had been involved with him in, inter alia, hacking private banking information and tracking Icelandic police vehicles. This was of course much easier to portray as crime, as opposed to journalism, so the second superseding indictment was produced based on Thordarson’s story, which was elaborated with Thordarson by an FBI team.
The difficulty was that Thordarson was hardly a reliable witness. He had already been convicted in Iceland for stealing approximately $50,000 from Wikileaks and with impersonating Julian Assange online, not to mention the inconvenient fact he is a registered sex offender for online activities with under-age boys. The FBI team was in fact expelled from Iceland by the Icelandic government, who viewed what the FBI was doing with Thordarson as wholly illegitimate.June 29, 2021 at 11:47 pm #78586VietnamVetParticipant
The Pandemic is real. It is deadly to old farts. Western Governments could care less. No PPE were stockpiled nor safe working conditions imposed on nursing homes or meat packing plants. No borders were sealed tight to air travel. Asymptomatic aerosol transmission is still denied by the “experts”. The neoliberal’s death star is greed. “It is the Benjamins, honey”. The hundreds of millions of 100 dollar jabs have created several new pharmaceutical billionaires,
In New Zealand, Australia & Singapore the public health systems leftover from SARS #1 outbreak worked and eradicated coronavirus. But the Indian government’s failure gave rise to the delta variant. With variant outbreaks at younger ages, all three nations are falling for the mRNA vaccine hype.
The USA is opening up its public service economy, ignoring the delta variant spikes in highly vaccinated Israel and UK or that the number of cases is starting to rise again. If for-profit hospitals are flooded again next winter, the new lockdown will be blamed on the unvaccinated not mRNA vaccine failure.
If there are any historians left after the collapse of a nuclear armed hegemon, the real culprits will be identified; the warring global and national oligarch clans who together destroyed democracy in order to get wealthier.June 30, 2021 at 12:17 am #78587madamski cafoneParticipant

@mister Roboto I think the crazy response by Aus is due to a number of reasons. As an island, all we had to do was close the borders to travellers and returning citizens and it’s game over for the virus. The five eyes likes to use Aus and NZ as a testing ground for policies they plan to implement elsewhere, which are always more difficult to put into place in the US because of its pesky constitution/bill of rights and the size, diversity and general unruliness of its population. I also think that we are all running short on distillates (diesel), and locking down is a great way to conserve it for freight, industry and agriculture without fessing up to the real problem. The fact that each state in Aus is taking very noticeable turns locking down should be a massive red flag to indicate that the lockdowns have nothing to do with Covid. I have a background in law, and the state border closures are actually a massive fuck you to the Aus constitution but the High Court and Federal government has been shitting all over it for the last 100 years so it’s not surprising.
The thing about Aus though is that it is a huge and wild place with a heavily urbanised population, and if you don’t live in the cities the government is limited in what it can do. The area where I live has two police officers that have to cover a spread out rural population of 10,000 so any enforcement of restrictions is limited and has mostly been non existent over the past two years. If you didn’t watch the news you wouldn’t have known anything was going on except that people are wearing funny masks. Australia’s cities have always been wealth pumps of Empire, first towards London and then toward Washington, and they currently represent cancerous growths of globalisation on the continent rather than shining beacons of culture and urbanism. The have always faced outwards toward the rest of world rather than inward towards the heart of the continent, desperately longing for international approval without realising that we live in one of the most magical and ancient places on earth. The rush to urban lockdown may be something like a kow tow to the established international religion in which they are some of the worlds most devout believers, while there rest of us look on with a certain dark humour. Many Australian urbanites know more about the layout of London and Paris than the names for their own rivers, or what the beautiful, mournful song of the pied butcherbird sounds like. Many of them delight in the at the size and majesty of the Californian redwoods, without even knowing that the native mountain ash grows just as tall and in the past even taller.June 30, 2021 at 2:10 am #78590June 30, 2021 at 2:42 am #78591
@russell: I was just thinking today that the coronavirus response is probably a lot less…consistent, for lack of a better word, in the USA than other Western countries because we are very spread-out and highly federalized, with socio-political differences in each state. I probably haven’t seen as much of the “Covidian Cult” hysteria as other people here because unless it’s a total catastrophe (which nobody with the exception of those old enough to remember the Great Depression has ever experienced), Wisconsin people really tend to take things in stride. If I lived and worked in the urban centers of Milwaukee or Madison, perhaps I would have seen more of this CC hysteria. (I know that if it weren’t for Milwaukee and Dane Counties, Wisconsin could very well be a “red state” by now, which is why the country-club Republicans in the state legislature regard these counties as if they have no right to even exist.)June 30, 2021 at 2:53 am #78592

Yesterday, I tried to comment on money velocity. Obviously I wasn’t successful so I will try again tonight.
If central bankers have been creating ever larger amounts of cash that just bounces back and forth between the banks and the Fed but never enters the real economy, then this dead money has no velocity!
Now if the amount of dead money keeps increasing, wouldn’t averaging the money velocity with the real economy, show money velocity slowing down?
I personally don’t pay any attention to the deceptive money velocity god.
To point to slowing money velocity as proof there is no inflation, when your can see your money’s purchasing power evaporate before your very eyes, is doublespeak at it’s finest!June 30, 2021 at 4:49 am #78595

“So I wonder, why is the immunity resulting from a Covid infection being downplayed, and the lesser protection resulting from the vaccines being hyped up?“
Because, TPTB want everyone vaccinated at least once.
We can speculate as to the reason.
