    • 2 Separate Studies Debunk Theory That Vitamin D Protects Against Covid-19 (RT)

    These studies always look at the wrong thing and end up conflating issues. Nobody is claiming that Vitamin D “protects against covid”, rather there is evidence that upwards of 80% of infections & deaths are in people with Vitamin D deficiencies. Moreover, Vitamin D deficiency has been a common though mostly under the radar problem for many people for any years now, especially in northern climates like North America and Europe.

    Additionally, supplements are never as good as the real thing. Better to get outside with some sun exposure where the body naturally produces Vitamin D. This will, for a fact, improves one’s health including their immune system. Next they’ll be producing studies that claim that being thin & healthy (rather that ob*se) do not protect against covid either.

    Odd mix of anti-vaxxers.

    • France Faces Challenge To Persuade Millions Of Vaccine Sceptics (Sky)

    We need to abandon the disparaging smear of “anti-vaxx” because the so-called anti-vaxx crowd is simply normal people with honest questions & concerns about vaccines and their giant corporate pharmaceutical companies.

    Here’s an article from NPR about the rollout of a dengue vaccine in the Philippines. Read it and I dare you to tell that you still trust vaccines and would take one unquestioningly (especially the experimental new vaccines):

    Thus the anti-vaxx crowd is not the freaks who deserve scorn, rather it is the Evangelical Vaccine Fanatics, i.e., those people who unwittingly shill for corporate pharmaceutical companies who are the twit that deserve to be disparaged at every turn. We need to stop using the anti-vaxx terminology and start laughing at the EVFs or Vac Fans.


    Lots of heavy weights today that can’t be trusted!
    Deep state, FBI, US government, drug companies, Fed, ECB, facebook, google, Twitter, the msm, the science, CDC, Moderna, IBM, the French government. Did I forget anyone?

    Read a story about 2 Americans who just learned they can’t trust the FBI. The FBI exists only to protect the state from it’s citizens. They learned too late. Most Americans know better than to talk to the FBI.

    A few days ago the FBI asked the public to help identify the suspect who planted 2 pipe bombs in D.C. No they really don’t want help identifying the pipe bomb suspect. They just want to help their political masters set the narrative that the capital is under constant attack. If nobody attacks DC soon, the FBI is up to the task. The same narrative for keeping troops in DC.

    Mister Roboto

    I have only read the introduction to the “vaccination monster” article so far because it looks like a long and thinky piece and I’m going to have to start getting ready for work here pretty soon. But while I am mostly pro-vaccine, I also like to think that I have a certain if very limited amount of psychic intuition or “sixth sense”. There’s just…something about the idea of vaccinating our way out of Covid the way it is being planned that just makes that sixth sense scream “NO!” Perhaps this article will provide a more rational and conventional explanation for these intuitive misgivings of mine.

    John Day

    Just look at the wrong thing and find nothing there:

    “vitamin D supplementation as a means of protecting against worsened Covid outcomes is not supported by genetic evidence,”

    The researchers, who did not include data from people living in nursing homes, looked at how vitamin D deficiency rates varied across European nations and compared that data to infection rates.

    They concluded that the “prevalence of vitamin D deficiency was not significantly associated with either the number of infections, recoveries or mortality rate of Covid-19” across Europe.

    “Scientists Accuse CDC Of Misinterpreting Their Research (F.)”

    As we saw with CDC research on masks yesterday (under 1% effect), the CDC is radically anti-science. If you didn’t already know. But they ARE pro-money. Cash has been running briskly since they started mis-reporting statistics. THEY PAY YOU FOR BAD MATH? So easy a cave man can do it.

    I’ll give you TWICE as bad math for HALF the price! Cough-PCR40-cough.

    But The Lancet will publish fake research for free. I can’t compete with that.

    “not supported by genetic evidence,”

    Genetic? Non-sequiturs-R-Us.

    Let’s see: if it were Vitamin D related, we’d see disease in norther countries (check) but not those who pointedly favor the outdoors, like Sweden, (check). It would be worse in the winter and closely follow daylight hours (check). Dark people would be far harder hit (check) but only if they aren’t in the tropics (check). We’d see the entire tropical band from Thailand through Ivory Coast essentially untouched despite poor health services (check) and Florida and Texas would be better than NY and NJ (check).

    Nope! I don’t see any case here! Carry on, The Lancet, I always believe doctors who’ve totally, laughably discredited themselves almost yearly. They’re not even a whore; they’re a cheap whore.

    “France Faces Challenge To Persuade Millions Of Vaccine Sceptics (Sky)”

    That’s odd. Why would anyone be a vaccine sceptic? Maybe they should look into why NOBODY TRUSTS THEM anymore. Maybe The Lancet can help explain it to them with Perdue Pharma’s help.


    I’m sure they’ll only be locked down 15 days discussing it to flatten the curve of a 99.997% safe explanation.

    “..the White House is preparing a series of devastating cyberattacks on Russia..”

    Hahahahaha! The White House can’t even devastate countries who are already IN the stone age, like Afghanistan. The only devastation will be to taxpayers in Flint, Michigan and Muncie, Indiana. Oooops! Too late. Baltimore is already in the Stone Age. Or maybe they’ll call it the Blue Age. It’s now more thoroughly devastated than when the Delaware Indians lived there. At least they had fish and trees.

    Google, Ad Tech, and the Gutting of the News Publishers

    Google, Ad Tech, and the Gutting of the News Publishers
    by Wolf Richter • Mar 10, 2021 • 59 Comments


    “News publisher ad revenues have plummeted dramatically over the last two decades; between 2005 and 2018, news organizations saw their ad revenue fall by 70 percent. During that same period, Google’s ad revenue increased from approximately $6 billion to $116 billion, and Google’s market capitalization increased from approximately $100 billion to $1 trillion.”
    Google and the entire industry of “Ad Tech” have inserted themselves in multiple opaque layers between the advertiser (such as Macy’s) and publications (such as WOLF STREET), and extract by now most of the money out of the huge pile that advertisers spend, leaving less and less for publishers.

    ( WOLF STREET comments are interesting)

    Happy to oblige, Carol. But still will need the means to do it. Hope people understand that. Ad revenues are down 85% from 10 years ago. That’s my reality. So I need Paypal and Patreon. Hope people understand that too. I don’t want a paywall here, but that means people must volunteer to donate for what they appreciate. It’s a shift in how you get your news, but it makes a lot of sense, I think, once you think about it.

    Mr. House

    Something to consider:

    In 2014 we published a disclaimer about the forecast. In six years the scenario has changed dramatically. This new disclaimer is meant to single out the situation from 2020 onwards. Talking about the United States and the European Union as separated entities no longer makes sense. Both are the Western block, keep printing money and will share the same fate.

    After COVID we can draw two major conclusions:

    The Western world success model has been built over societies with no resilience that can barely withstand any hardship, even a low intensity one. It was assumed but we got the full confirmation beyond any doubt.
    The COVID crisis will be used to extend the life of this dying economic system through the so called Great Reset.

    The Great Reset; like the climate change, extinction rebellion, planetary crisis, green revolution, shale oil (…) hoaxes promoted by the system; is another attempt to slow down dramatically the consumption of natural resources and therefore extend the lifetime of the current system. It can be effective for awhile but finally won’t address the bottom-line problem and will only delay the inevitable. The core ruling elites hope to stay in power which is in effect the only thing that really worries them.

    The collapse of the Western financial system – and ultimately the Western civilization – has been the major driver in the forecast along with a confluence of crisis with a devastating outcome. As COVID has proven Western societies embracing multiculturalism and extreme liberalism are unable to deal with any real hardship. The Spanish flu one century ago represented the death of 40-50 million people. Today the world’s population is four times greater with air travel in full swing which is by definition a super spreader. The death casualties in today’s World would represent 160 to 200 million in relative terms but more likely 300-400 million taking into consideration the air travel factor that did not exist one century ago. So far, COVID death toll is roughly 1 million people. It is quite likely that the economic crisis due to the lockdowns will cause more deaths than the virus worldwide.

    The Soviet system was less able to deliver goodies to the people than the Western one. Nevertheless Soviet society was more compact and resilient under an authoritarian regime. That in mind, the collapse of the Soviet system wiped out 10 percent of the population. The stark reality of diverse and multicultural Western societies is that a collapse will have a toll of 50 to 80 percent depending on several factors but in general terms the most diverse, multicultural, indebted and wealthy (highest standard of living) will suffer the highest toll. The only glue that keeps united such aberrant collage from falling apart is overconsumption with heavy doses of bottomless degeneracy disguised as virtue. Nevertheless the widespread censorship, hate laws and contradictory signals mean that even that glue is not working any more. Not everybody has to die migration can also play a positive role in this.

    The formerly known as second and third world nations are an unknown at this point. Their fate will depend upon the decisions they take in the future. Western powers are not going to take over them as they did in the past because these countries won’t be able to control their own cities far less likely countries that are far away. If they remain tied to the former World Order they will go down along Western powers but won’t experience the brutal decline of the late because they are poorer and not diverse enough but rather quite homogenous used to deal with some sort of hardship but not precisely the one that is coming. If they switch to China they can get a chance to stabilize but will depend upon the management of their resources.

    We expected this situation to unfold and actually is unfolding right now with the November election triggering a major bomb if Trump is re-elected. If Biden is elected there will very bad consequences as well. There is a lot of bad blood in the Western societies and the protests, demonstrations, rioting and looting are only the first symptoms of what is coming. However a new trend is taking place overshadowing this one.

    The situation between the three great powers has changed dramatically. The only relevant achievement of the Western powers during the past decade has been the formation of a strategic alliance, both military and economic, between Russia and China. Right now the potential partnership between Russia and the European Union (EU) is dead with Russia turning definitively towards China. That was from the beginning the most likely outcome. Airbus never tried to establish a real partnership but rather a strategy to fade away the Russian aerospace industry. Actually Russia and China have formed a new alliance to build a long haul airliner. Western Europe (not to mention the United States) was never interested in the development of Russia or forming anything other than a master slave relationship with Russia providing raw materials and toeing the line of the West. It was clear then and today is a fact.

    Russia has been preparing for a major war since 2008 and China has been increasing her military capabilities for the last 20 years. Today China is not a second tier power compared with the United States. Both in military and economic terms China is at the same level and in some specific areas are far ahead. In the domain of high-tech 5G has been a success in the commercial realm but the Type 055 destroyer is also another breakthrough with the US gaining a similar capability (DDG 51 Flight IIII) by mid of this decade (more likely by 2030). Nanchang, the lead ship of the Type 055 class, was commissioned amid the pandemic and lockdown in China.

    Six years ago the likelihood of a major war was tiny. Since then it has grown steadily and dramatically and today is by far the most likely major event in the 2020s. The ultimate conflict can come from two ways. A conventional conflict involving at least two major powers that escalates into an open nuclear war. A second scenario is possible in the 2025-2030 timeframe. A Russian sneak first strike against the United States and its allies with the new S-500, strategic missile defenses, Yasen-M submarines, INF Zircon and Kalibr missiles and some new space asset playing the key role. The sneak first strike would involve all Russian missile strategic forces branches (bombers and ground-based missiles) at the different stages of such attack that would be strategic translation of what was seen in Syria in November 2015. There was no report that the Russian had such a capability of launching a high precision, multiple, combined arms attack at targets 2,000+ kilometers away. Western intelligence had no clue. The irony is that since the end of the Cold War the United States has been maneuvering through NATO to achieve a position to execute a first strike over Russia and now it seems that the first strike may occur but the country finished would be the United States.

    Another particularity of the Western system is that its individuals have been brainwashed to the point that the majority accept their moral high ground and technological edge as a given. This has given the rise of the supremacy of the emotional arguments over the rational ones which are ignored or deprecated. That mindset can play a key role in the upcoming catastrophic events. At least in the Soviet system the silent majority of the people were aware of the fallacies they were fed up. We can see the United States claims about G5 being stolen from them by China or hypersonic technology being stolen by Russia as the evidence that the Western elites are also infected by that hubris. Over the next decade it will become obvious that the West is falling behind the Russia-China block and the malaise might grow into desperation. Going to war might seem a quick and easy solution to restore the lost hegemony to finally find them into a France 1940 moment. Back then France did not have nuclear weapons to turn a defeat into a victory. The West might try that swap because the unpleasant prospect of not being Mars and Venus but rather a bully and his dirty bitch running away in fear while the rest of the world is laughing at them.

    If there is not a dramatic change of course the world is going to witness the first nuclear war. The Western block collapse may come before, during or after the war. It does not matter. A nuclear war is a game with billions of casualties and the collapse plays in the hundreds of millions.

    COVID Is Endemic Now

    The blocking is quite bad right now. Maybe it’s the ivermectin stories.

    We are fatigues from the long crisis of COVID. How long can a “pandemic” last?
    When is the presence of the dread contagion “the new normal”?
    I argue that our world has already passed from the spread of SARS-CoV-2 into a vulnerable and naive population, “Pandemic”, into the situation we have always had with colds and flu, “endemic”.
    COVID is here to stay, no matter where you live.

    I live in Texas, so I like to follow the graphics which the Texas Tribune compiles. Texas has (usually) a mild enough climate that people can get sun on their skins, even in winter. Texas is close enough to the equator for the winter sunlight to cause vitamin-D production. To drug companies, vitamin-D is a competing product. To our bodies it is an essential hormone, with receptors on every cell in the body, that our species lost the ability to make a couple of hundred thousand years ago, when we lived in the tropics, with minimal clothing.
    TexasTribune graphics show the “double wave” of the pandemic, with the first dip in September, peak natural vitamin-D month. The big second wave peaked in mid January, and is fading fast in “cases”, hospitalizations, deaths and the percent-positive rate of tests.
    Few tests are coming back positive these days.

    Texas would be expected to have milder pandemics, since people can be outside more, don’t ride trains much, and get the sunshine vitamin.
    When looking at public health mandates, like lockdowns and masking, people often ignore the differences in the regions and lifestyles. Most people have a political position they want to argue.
    I’m just a public-health guy. I want to help people live healthy lives. I don’t have a product competing in the marketplace.

    Our main defense against the coronavirus family is the innate immune system in our nose and throat area, which aggressively attacks viruses, molds, bacteria and sometimes pollen that we inhale. It’s a mixed blessing for those with allergies. The innate immune system is always ready to go, but it has to keep in training with frequent exposure to non-self things we inhale. This vaccine scientist worries that the current vaccine strategies actually weaken the innate immune system, our main defense, while promoting viral escape from the vaccines. The vaccine targets a viral coat protein, so the virus changes it to look different. He worries that the current vaccination track (business-driven) is making the world more susceptible to future viral variants, and weakening our critical first-line defense systems.

    Censorship Kills: The Shunning of a COVID Therapeutic
    Pierre Kory, MD, is president and chief medical officer of the Front-Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance
    Doctors fighting COVID-19 should be supported by their profession and their government, not suppressed. Yet today physicians are smothered under a wave of censorship. With coronavirus variants and vaccine hesitancy threatening a prolonged pandemic, the National Institutes of Health and the broader U.S. medical establishment should free doctors to treat this terrible disease with effective medicines.
    For centuries, doctors have addressed emerging health threats by prescribing existing drugs for new uses, observing the results, and communicating to their peers and the public what seems to work. In a pandemic, precious time and lives can be lost by an insistence on excessive data and review. But in the current crisis, many in positions of authority have done just that, stubbornly refusing to allow any repurposed treatments. This departure from traditional medical practice risks catastrophe. When doctors on the front lines try to bring awareness of and use such medicines, they get silenced.
    I’ve experienced such censorship firsthand. Early in the pandemic, my research led me to testify in the Senate that corticosteroids were life-saving against COVID-19, when all national and international health care agencies recommended against them. My recommendations were criticized, ignored and resisted such that I felt forced to resign my faculty position. Only later did a large study from Oxford University find they were indeed life-saving. Overnight, they became the standard of care worldwide. More recently, we identified through dozens of trials that the drug ivermectin leads to large reductions in transmission, mortality, and time to clinical recovery. After testifying to this fact in a second Senate appearance — the video of which was removed by YouTube after garnering over 8 million views — I was forced to leave another position.

    Thanks Raul and commenters for providing sanity and good sense in these very trying times.


    I’ve read and re-read the article posted by Ilargi and John Day by G V Bossche. I know enough about the immune system to think I understand his argument. But I don’t know enough to comment critically. Can anyone provide more insight?

    If his argument holds up, I too find it very, very scary.


    If the kids go back to school, there will be a few whose parents have “vaccine hesitancy” (ahem) and despise the lockdown, etc. These kids will be “cool” to those whose parents have been cowering and OCDing for a year now. Kids influence kids, and the kids influence their parents. It’s a real threat to the narrative.
