“JPMorgan Concludes That Delta Variant Was “Less Infectious Than Feared’”
Oh. So once again you were LYING. And was simple to test and tell. And you knowingly did it anyway. Right.
Don’t even know what I’m looking at today. The lies are so thick it’s impossible to parody them, reveal them. Things like we vaccinate to protect the vaccinated from the vaccinated, so they can be vaccinated, and become unprotected too, go on without a hitch. Without a breath. Because they really mean: do what you’re told. You’re either Us, or Them, and we kill every Them on sight.
British is a great example: “The British government has been accused of trying to bypass Parliament” I’m sorry, who are these “government” people? The British Government is supposed to BE Parliament. That is, laws from Parliament, as similar to our system. Joe – or Jen really, Psaki – says they don’t expect the mandates to be legal either. But they do them anyway. NYC is shut down…but they do them anyway. CDC is advisory, not-legal, but they do them anyway. USSC stops them in the courts…but they do them anyway, issuing a “New” DACA, a “new” rule, identical to the old rule. As they please, natural immunity legally clears…but has no effect on legal precedent, ‘cause I said so. This is illegal, nobody cares.
Well, can’t say I’m surprised. We knew the courts were nearly the most rotten of the whole bunch, completely capricious, and ignorant too.
So who are “These guys”, that is the “Government”, if not Parliament, the peoples’ representatives? A: The standing bureaucracy. The light end of the Derp State, the minions of nothing, the suck-up army. The more-equal-than-others. Sports stars and movie stars, the backup drummer for Insane Clown Posse have a pass, no vaccine in NY. 70% of black people can’t eat. …Better pick up an instrument, become a song-and-dance man, get those tap shoes and pick some cotton Unka Remus, Mr. Baskett. Met Gala are more equal than others. All UN meetings, EU parties on the shore, CO2 private jets, no masks, more equal than others. All Australia, once in government, more equal than others, 5-star dinners on private estates. That is US, the Party members, in palatial Dachas on the Black Sea, shopping in Zurich while you’re in the Ukrainian coal mines, sucking dust.
Great applause all around, because THEY, the PMC, the View, the rock stars, think they’re “special” “important”, part of Uncle Joe’s secret circle! They are not, and hilariously, The View was tackled and hauled out while on camera for having Covid while being fully vaccinated. Again. Why do that when I can be tackled and hauled out for free? Nikki Minaj knows. She barely whispered and is being as openly erased as Zhao Wei, or Kanye West. Not that she didn’t know. Or cared.
Assange: note the writer of the “Bombshell” report (walls are closing in) was the most falsest, whore-est, reporter of the whole RussiaGate fabrication. But we believe him now? What’s he up to? Who’s telling him to print this? Why, and why now? Makes me think they’re trying to get ahead of something, and it’s so bad his CIA handlers are willing to drop this very large limited hangout in order to salt a lie that must therefore be quite large and egregious. Some bets are: for Pompeo, reported at the center. Really? When Assange is the key to shattering RussiaGate, freeing Trump, and discrediting the entire Democratic Party by name, perhaps for a generation? And Pompeo wants to kill this man who is the key to fix everything? Says the largest media liar after Luke Harding. Uh-huh.
There’s something there alright. Does that mean the CIA/CCP expects Julian to come in front of a court with sworn testimony soon? Why and how?
As expected, debt ceiling is NOT that easy. Why? Why now? Yellen says bankrupt by Oct 15. How possible if things are as they seem, DNC is all-in, all-power? The progressives have demanded terms at last, for once, but it’s not like this was unknown, nor that the concession can’t be made to them. Yet no. Why?
Following the excellent article, I realized the scam was to shut down the economy to save the debt collapse/hyperinflation (note both will happen: deflation and inflation), but I didn’t realize the full width and extent. Yes, like ’01, the collapse happened, the “event” that “caused” it…wait for it…happened AFTER. NASDAQ was already dead, all banks failing when “Then a Miracle happened” and $15 Trillion of WoT spending…plus hypothecating Iraqi oil we didn’t get, and stealing Libya’s, Ukraine’s gold ultimately, held off the debt with more collateral.
Same here. Powell and the banks held off hyperinflation with purposeful, massive DEflation, by shattering demand and driving all the people into poverty and desperation while Bezos made a Trillion? Who can count? And Powell insider traded it all?
The demand for credit is the demand for money. Say it with me now. At the end of the fantasy of debt-based money, the banks can create infinite — yes, really, 0% rates and no reserve requirements — and STILL can’t find any people to take a loan and therefore keep up with the compounding interest. Aha: BUT, Powell can golf with BlackRock, and TELL him to borrow $200B/year, $200B/mo, $200B/day, hour, minute…to buy something, anything, every U.S. house, I don’t’ care. And it has to be BlackRock because, well, A) they’re our friends and side, but B) the money cannot be allowed to reach the people EVER. Never ever ever. Or hyperinflation, Poof! The End.
And so they have. And we’re months after that, still compounding. 10-Year is rising again, pretty fast. Don’t you just have to give up and pick a day to end it all, like it or not? Or are you going to move the Fed into $3 Trillion every night and $2,000 Billion a month?
So that’s what I see with the debt ceiling. More weasels, more writhing around like the snakes they are. But no WWIII either, no Covid really, no excuse for the collapse but THEM. The Fed, Wall St, the DNC. The U.S., London, the Anglos.
How about this: China doesn’t bail Evergrande, but revalues gold to $10,000, enriching Russia. The “London Market Pool” of LBMA (+Comex, already a transparent scam of not-delivery for years, even a decade) collapses like it or not, and the Anglos are exposed as the cheats and frauds they are. The U.S. debt doesn’t “default” because like Greece not paying Europe, they simply lie, cheat, steal, deny, and redefine “default.” Yet the market cracks for non-confidence, and the Federales are mortally wounded. Devolving as they’re broke. And can’t do anything, pay anyone, or accomplish anything. See: https://libertarianinstitute.org/articles/he-thought-i-was-an-undercover-fed/

Following yesterday, Devolution, war plans are too much to describe. Suppose China was in D.C., L.A., S.F., and were laying claim on the nation. Does it make sense to have one Gen Geo in Nebraska, with one Comsat in one tent? No. He would become Goldberg. Devolution is dispersing the systems. Logistics go to Dakota, Communications go to Georgia. In fact, all 20 splits would have their own full military structure, although some have regional specialties. That way, should China wipe out, conquer all Florida, for instance, the Resistance continues, essentially to the last man who has that terrible “Idea” that ALL Men are born free and equal, kings of themselves, their actions, and their own consequences.
In this way, the “continuity of government” cannot end, cannot be stopped BECAUSE the government of the U.S. is not a President, General, or Governor, not an Imam or Pastor, but an IDEA. Also because it creates its own way, whatever response an illegitimate government has to it – illegitimate in being not “American”, illegitimate in being contrary to the principles of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights – that captured government will inspire its own resistance and its own downfall wherever it goes and whatever it does. As indeed we see today.
However a government who is NOT for the people, DOES have to do all these things, and more; to run a relentless propaganda campaign of raw force and lies. Which requires ever-more energy, thus ever-more waste and extraction making ever-more resistance.
It also does not matter what form it takes. It can be a farmer or a shopkeeper, a blogger, a Sheriff or a Governor or a General. They can appear and disappear, change form, change focus endlessly. They can exist, retired, be replaced. For the most part, no one can be captured because they each know nothing about the larger plan. The “Plan” is America, the Idea of self-reliance, self-determination, and limited government.
And more importantly, as civilizations, massive timescales go, once the pendulum has moved to ultimate “centralization” and “infrastructure” it begins its turn to “decentralization” to “locality” and “self-reliance.” Which seems to be the force we are aligned with, and where we are all going now.
If, as one man or the other says, “We have global warming!” “We have global cooling!” “Solar flares!” “We have incoming comets and space stretching us!” “Debt collapse!” it doesn’t matter. All of them are Devolution, decentralization events. All of them say, “Prepare.” All say, “Self-sufficiency.” All say “You’re on your own, the Federal level can’t help you” anymore than it helped in Sandy or Katrina. Or helped the ‘08 MERS foreclosures. On the other side, all centralization can only be held against this tide and these events. Against weather. Against discrediting. Against resistance. Against finance. Against collapse. Against tradition in fact, and the will and spirit of the people. It would take a miracle indeed for them to survive at all.
Or us, if they keep helping. But nevertheless, we’ll survive and they won’t. Or rather we both will, to some extent and proportion. But decentralizing is our win and their disbandment, their loss, and we’re going there.
Unfortunately, you have to “Stay Alive” to get there and enjoy it. Don’t be the first guy killed in the war-on-us. Or the last. Go home and plow your garden like Cincinnatus. That’s winning in the new cycle.September 29, 2021 at 12:12 pm #88749Mister RobotoParticipant

A peek at TAE from me with an opinion
• Clinical Outcomes of Over-the-Counter COVID-19 Prophylaxis and Treatment (Sage)
” …. supplementation that enhances the immune response can prove a useful adjunct to vaccination, antibody infusion and prescribed medications, and may be useful for addressing possible viral mutations ….”
“In addition to study formulation components,
( One dose daily of the full core formulation regimen, containing:
25 mg zinc;
1000 mg vitamin C;
1000 IU (25 μg) vitamin D3;)
we recommended to participants healthy lifestyle and diet modifications, as well as exercise. (While such recommendations are regular features of our practice, the pandemic underscored their need and added urgency to the recommendations.) The exercises were directed to relaxation and core body strengthening and, especially in light of the respiratory aspects of COVID-19, to maintenance and enhancement of pulmonary health and function.”
Good Catch on breakthough
(Do a search for “breakthrough covid cases” to find the hidden truth)
• Guam’s Vaccination Success Story Turns Grim With Covid Surge (G.)
( breakthrough definition: The vaccine did not work)
” …The island ran an incredibly successful vaccination campaign, with almost 90% of eligible people having received two doses…. breakthrough cases represent 31% of infections – the highest rate in the US, where most states have less than 1%. Breakthrough patients in Guam account for about 40% of hospital admissions.”
What does CDC say?
Don’t worry. The numbers are too small. Breakthrough affect mainly old people.
Hospitalized or fatal COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases reported to CDC as of September 20, 2021
As of September 20, 2021, more than 181 million people in the United States had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
During the same time, CDC received reports from 50 U.S. states and territories of 19,136 patients with COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough infection who were hospitalized or died.
People aged ≥65 years Death 3,882 (86%) Hospitalized, non-fatal* 10,136 (69%)
Previous data on all vaccine breakthrough cases reported to CDC from January–April 2021 are available.
(Cover your ass clause)
The findings in this report are subject to at least two limitations. First, the number of reported COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases is likely a substantial undercount of all SARS-CoV-2 infections among fully vaccinated persons. The national surveillance system relies on passive and voluntary reporting, and data might not be complete or representative. Many persons with vaccine breakthrough infections, especially those who are asymptomatic or who experience mild illness, might not seek testing. Second, SARS-CoV-2 sequence data are available for only a small proportion of the reported cases.
Beginning May 1, 2021, CDC transitioned from monitoring all reported COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough infections to investigating only those among patients who are hospitalized or die, thereby focusing on the cases of highest clinical and public health significance. CDC will continue to lead studies in multiple U.S. sites to evaluate vaccine effectiveness and collect information on all COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough infections regardless of clinical status.

COVID-19 mortality risk correlates inversely with vitamin D3 status, and a mortality rate close to zero could theoretically be achieved at 50 ng/ml 25(OH)D3: Results of a systematic review and meta-analysis
Conclusions The two datasets provide strong evidence that low D3 is a predictor rather than a side effect of the infection. Despite ongoing vaccinations, we recommend raising serum 25(OH)D levels to above 50 ng/ml to prevent or mitigate new outbreaks due to escape mutations or decreasing antibody activity.
A “pangolin lineage” SARS-CoV-2 variant, with multiple vaccine-escape mutations popped up in Moscow early this year. It’s hard to tell how that might have happened. No link between distant pangolins and the circulating virus has been found. It’s getting around pretty well in the world. I wonder where it came from.
A new SARS-CoV-2 variant (B.1.1.523) capable of escaping immune protections
The authors of this study have reported that the B.1.1.523 variant harbors a new combination of concerning spike mutations that are present in many currently circulating VoCs. Many of these mutations are concerning and are associated with the evasion of immune protection. This is critical, as these developments could challenge the effectiveness of available vaccines

Canadian military leaders saw the pandemic as a unique opportunity to test out propaganda techniques on an unsuspecting public, a newly released Canadian Forces report concludes. The federal government never asked for the so-called information operations campaign, nor did cabinet authorize the initiative developed during the COVID-19 pandemic by the Canadian Joint Operations Command, then headed by Lt.-Gen. Mike Rouleau. But military commanders believed they didn’t need to get approval from higher authorities to develop and proceed with their plan, retired Maj.-Gen. Daniel Gosselin, who was brought in to investigate the scheme, concluded in his report.
Victoria, Australia: Health Minister Foley announced 867 new COVID cases recorded yesterday. During the statistical outline Foley identifies 375 people as hospitalized, 81 people in intensive care and 61 people on a ventilator. Then comes the statistic everyone in government and media ignore. Amid the recorded cases “78% of the hospital cases are fully vaccinated, and 17% are partially vaccinated (1 dose)”….
That means 95% of the COVID patients in Victoria hospitals are vaccinated.
356 people out of 375 patients are vaccinated, yet 81 people are still in intensive care with 61 on a ventilator…
78% of the hospital patients are fully vaccinated, that’s actually a higher percentage than the population vaccinated as a whole.September 29, 2021 at 2:50 pm #88761
Biden’s Vax Mandate To Be Enforced By Fining Companies $70,000 To $700,000? Wait, did I vote for THAT?
Democrats provide much higher vaccine efficacy estimates than Republicans (88% vs. 50%), and unvaccinated Republicans have a median vaccine efficacy of 0%, compared with 73% for vaccinated Republicans.
Only 45% of respondents said they trust the president to provide accurate information about the virus, down from 58% in January. The result of this poll is exemplified in Biden’s outlandish comment on Monday about pre-pandemic life can only return if 97% of Americans are vaccinated.
Compared with rating earlier this year, Biden is losing trust among Democrats (an 11-percentage point decline to 81% trust a great deal or fair amount) and Republicans (a 10-point drop to 11%). He has experienced the most significant decline in confidence among independents (a 17-point decline to 42%).
Lt. Colonel Theresa Long MD, and Air Force Flight surgeon files a Military Whistleblower affidavit seeking a court injunction, on the basis of the fact, presented in evidence, that current COVID-19 vaccines produce heart damage in pilots and flight crews, and that all of those vaccinated need to be grounded until medical studies can be carried out, at least MRI, because the majority of myocarditis and lesser damage is not overtly symptomatic. The pilots and crew members that have died within 2 days of vaccination, so far, did not die flying.
This is a courageous and principled stand, and the end of her military career, no matter what the court may ultimately find.September 29, 2021 at 2:52 pm #88762
The Great Game Moves On (The western goal is now to contain China, to allow island nations to maintain independence from China.)
Following NATO’s defeat in the heart of Asia, and with Afghanistan now under the Taliban’s rule, the Chinese/Russian axis now controls the Asian continental mass. Asian nations not directly related to its joint hegemony (not being members, associates, or dialog partners of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation) are increasingly dependent upon it for trade and technology. Sub-Saharan Africa is in its sphere of influence. The reality for America is that the total population in or associated with the SCO is 57% of the world population. And America’s grip on its European allies is slipping.
NATO itself has become less relevant, with Turkey drawn towards the rival Asian axis, and its EU members are compromised through trading and energy links with Russia and China. Furthermore, France is pushing the EU towards establishing its own army independent of US-led NATO — quite what its role will be, other than political puffery for France is a mystery.
It is against this background that three of the Five Eyes intelligence partnership have formed AUKUS – standing for Australia, UK, and US — and its first agreement is to give Australia a nuclear submarine capability to strengthen the partnership’s naval power in the Pacific. Other capabilities, chiefly aimed at containing the Chinese threat to Taiwan and other allies in the Pacific Ocean, will surely emerge in due course. The other two Five Eyes, Canada and New Zealand, appear to be less keen to confront China…
But gathering intelligence and building naval power in the Pacific won’t defeat the Chinese. All simulations show that the US, with or without AUKUS, cannot win a military conflict against China. But AUKUS is not a formal model on NATO lines which commits its members by treaty to aggression against a common enemy. While Taiwan remains a specific problem, the objective is almost certainly to discourage China from territorial expansion and protect and give other Pacific nations on the Asian periphery the security to be independent from the SCO behemoth...
…While the US may not like it, if RCEP goes ahead, freer trade will almost certainly undermine a belligerent stance in due course. Despite hiccups, the progression of trade dealing in the Pacific region promises to prove Mackinder right about the prospect of a more balanced world. All being well and guaranteed by a balance of naval capabilities between AUKUS and China, a free-trading Pacific region will render the European and American trade protectionist policies an anachronism...
…Having failed in their land-based military objectives, America’s undeclared tariff and financial wars against China are also coming to an end, to be replaced by a policy of maritime containment through the AUKUS partnership. Attempts to stem strategic losses in Asia have now ended with the withdrawal from Afghanistan and from other interventions.
The change in geopolitical policy is not yet widely appreciated. But the parlous state of US finances, dollar market bubbles, persistent and increasing price inflation and the inevitability of interest rate increases will make a policy backstop of maritime containment the only geostrategic option left to America.
John Ward has some insights. China is the largest coal user in the world, by far. China is the largest coal producer, but has low reserves. Chinese imports of American coal (at low import duty) just increased ninefold, after Australian coal imports were halted for a trade dispute.
China is having rolling blackouts from lack of coal-power recently, and expects them to last, “new normal”. Coal choke-hold?
& NOW, HERE IS SOME NEWS
At least 20 Chinese provinces and regions making up more than 66% of the country’s GDP have announced some form of power cuts. Guangdong province, the southern industrial hub, is cutting ~10% of its peak power demand.

Pepe Escobar, A New World Order Takes Shape, Part 2 – Eurasian Consolidation Ends The US Unipolar Moment
With very little potential to contain China now that it’s been all but expelled from the Eurasia heartland, the fallback position had to be a classic maritime power play: the “free and open Indo-Pacific”, complete with Quad and AUKUS, the whole set up spun to death as an “effort” attempting to preserve dwindling American supremacy...
The Global South is not impressed. Addressing the forum in Dushanbe, President Putin remarked that the portfolio of nations knocking on the SCO’s door was huge, and that was not surprising at all. Egypt, Qatar and Saudi Arabia are now SCO dialogue partners, on the same level with Afghanistan and Turkey. It’s quite feasible they may be joined next year by Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Serbia and a cast of dozens...
It’s no wonder the process irks the Empire immensely, because Greater Eurasia, led by Russia-China, is a mortal attack against the geoeconomic architecture of Atlanticism. And that leads us to the nest of vipers debate around the EU concept of “strategic autonomy” from the US; that would be essential to establish true European sovereignty – and eventually, closer integration within Eurasia.
Taiwan makes the chips and systems that the world needs. Taiwan has to keep making them, but China would like to control them, and so would the US.
Nobody wants to destroy that capacity, but to own it. Taiwan can probably buy whatever missiles it wants, but not from China.
Taiwan’s Defense Minister Demands Long-Range Missiles For The Island To Repel China

All of Central Asia is re-setting towards the SCO, EAEU, Russia and China. The former is now ‘lost’ to the U.S., Alastair Crooke writes.
In a very real sense, Washington was the hub: and states – particularly Gulf States defined themselves more in relation to the hub – than to each other. Now those relationships, and associated policies, many of which were geared to pleasing and being favoured by the hub, are up for radical review...
…if there was doubt about where the U.S. ‘is’, consider this: The stunning betrayal of France by America over the eleventh hour surprise provision of nuclear submarine technology for Australia signals a huge geopolitical shift in U.S. strategy. In its growing confrontation with China, a ruthless Washington has demonstrated that what matters to it now is not Europe, but the Indo-Pacific region. This is wthe new Cold War is to be fought.here
For Israel, the problem is more acute as former Ambassador, Michael Oren, has outlined:
”The new Israeli government is facing this doomsday nuclear threat [from Iran]. In five years’ time, it will be worse: Iran’s programme will be further along. [This conflict] is going to happen eventually, of that I am absolutely certain, so I prefer it happens now, rather than in 5 years’ time – when it will be more difficult for Israel to respond” …
“With the U.S. focusing its efforts on preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons, Iran is liable to reach the conclusion that as a nuclear threshold state, it will not be the target of a military retaliation. And if sanctions are imposed on it – it can look to other world powers for help, such as China and Russia. If Iran reaches the conclusion that there is no point in developing real nuclear weapons because this could produce a frontal clash with the U.S. and the West; yet still become a nuclear threshold state, the challenge to Israel is liable to be particularly difficult”.September 29, 2021 at 2:54 pm #88764
Are We Really So “Rich”? A New Way of Defining Wealth Charles Hugh Smith
What if our commoditized, financialized definition of wealth reflects a staggering poverty of culture, spirit, wisdom, practicality and common sense?
The conventional definition of wealth is solely financial: ownership of money and assets. The assumption is that money can buy anything the owner desires: power, access, land, shelter, energy, transport and if not love, then a facsimile of caring.
The flaw in this reductionist definition is obvious: not everything of value can be purchased at any price–for example, health, once lost, cannot be purchased for $1 million, $10 million or even $100 million.

“ The psychopaths have won, the innocent will be destroyed”
I *know* that feeling. I felt it so many times from 2017 – 2020 when my ex was trying to remove the children from me completely, based on lies he had spread to the children’s behavioral health staff, that they had dutifully recorded in their notes. I lived with the bastard siblings of psychopathy for nearly 12 years (ex is very likely borderline/narcissistic personality disorder), and still have to deal with it from afar (to whit: the family court case). Right now, I’m working on the bankruptcy to address the debt I incurred to fight that legal battle.
But…I won. It wasn’t glorious. And the children still live with him half the time. The innocents were not destroyed — but they are somewhat jaded and savvy. They are less innocent. And that is okay. (Life is not about remaining innocent.)
This is what needs to happen in the world. The psychopaths are just getting started. They planned well — just like my ex did when he started spreading those lies, and the behavioral health staff violated several laws when they communicated with his girlfriend without authorization, and didn’t tell me what was going on (I had final decision-making at the time.). But the fight is just getting started. Yes, we are behind the 8 ball. The sooner we face this head on, turn around the narrative, the better. It won’t be a walk in the park. The sooner we face the issues, the milder the ultimate outcome will be.September 29, 2021 at 3:34 pm #88769
Speaking of oldies but goodies, haven’t heard a peep about this since 2008!
But its a health crisis, not financial. Nope, didn’t start in 2008 and then we pretended it was fixed only to be kept under the rug with 0% rates and QE and then started to blow up again in 2019, nope its all this virus that only 99.8% of people survive!September 29, 2021 at 3:36 pm #88770
and here we have a lesson in lying
“Though fully vaccinated, each had underlying health conditions that could have made them more susceptible to a breakthrough infection, their daughter, Sarah Dunham, told WXMI-TV after their deaths on Sunday.”
So the same argument non compromised people have been making since at least April of 2020?September 29, 2021 at 3:43 pm #88771absolute galoreParticipant
America’s Frontline Doctors, a right-wing group founded last year to promote pro-Trump doctors during the coronavirus pandemic, is working in tandem with a small network of health care companies to sow distrust in the Covid-19 vaccine, dupe tens of thousands of people into seeking ineffective treatments for the disease, and then sell consultations and millions of dollars’ worth of those medications. The data indicate patients spent at least $15 million — and potentially much more — on consultations and medications combined.
Oh gosh! $15 million?!! Potentially more?!!! Holy cow, that’s….less than Pfizer et al spent on lobbying. Pfizer alone expected to take in $33.5 billion–before FDA full approval, boosters, and 80 million donation doses to poor countries. A few net profit stats here.
No doubt there will be scammers and grifters feeding on fear. But the government itself created the shortage and the “underground” market, such as it might be. And to lump orgs like Front Line into this group of scammers is, as Raul noted, vile.September 29, 2021 at 4:13 pm #88772
Nice rant. 🙂
<<All of them say, “Prepare.” All say, “Self-sufficiency.” All say “You’re on your own, the Federal level can’t help you” >>
May i add…
It isn’t “self” sufficiency alone. It is in families, who plan together to weather storms that would be daunting to individuals. It is communities — groups of friends, neighbors, churches, clubs, etc. — who voluntarily come together and plan how to meet the needs of individuals and families that they cannot meet themselves — like setting up a swapmeet or farmers market, etc. it is when these groups coordinate together for common goals. It is all of the pent up organization that comes from the bottom up, and laterally across — and NOT top-down. It tends to be messy and organic, but just like the natural world, often serves multiple purposes at once — filling a stated need and simultaneously filling the need for human companionship and interaction. This type of organizing works best when each individual and family work towards self-sufficiency, and are willing to share/barter their surplus things and energy with those in their community, as well as receive the help of others when they struggle to meet their own needs. This is humanity—the part of humanity that I revere and love.September 29, 2021 at 4:18 pm #88773absolute galoreParticipant

“The psychopaths have won…”
Nyet, nein nein nein, no fucking way…take Heart and steel your nerves ! The real fighting is just beginning, take comfort in that and ‘never give up the fight’.

Not. Negatory Ghost Writer. Take Heart…there are millions of us in this fight to their deaths.
Need a little morale boost? Wanna fight evil, psychopaths, bad guys, villains, the man, the establishment, monsters and, um, robots ? Here’s a Hollywood reminder that we will kick their fucking asses yippe ki yay mofos.

Lysine treatment for covid:

India did it. USA is not informed. I want to repeat key points.
Each home kit contained the following: Paracetamol tablets [tylenol], Vitamin C, Multivitamin, Zinc, Vitamin D3, Ivermectin 12 mg [quantity #10 tablets], Doxycycline 100 mg [quantity #10 tablets]. Other non-medication components included face masks, sanitizer, gloves and alcohol wipes, a digital thermometer, and a pulse oximeter.
Dr. Campbell attributes their success to many factors, including early detection and early treatment with kits costing a mere $ 2.65 per person
Notice that Dr. Campbell does not mention a single person who had any toxicity from those ten 12 mg pills of Ivermectin – in the entire state of over 200 million. Not one poisoning was reported. No Indian poison control articles or telephone calls were reported. Out of millions of distributed medicine kits, each containing 120 mg of Ivermectin, not one person in Uttar Pradesh was reported to have had a problem with the drug.
Therefore, the reader must now ask why two magnificent independent reviews from two different continents, coming to the same conclusion, are both ignored by,( USA), our world’s medical leaders?September 29, 2021 at 5:41 pm #88780
Thanks to Doc Robinson the other day for adding to my understanding of vaccine recipients shedding the spike protein — it was found in the saliva of injected mice.
Here is something else for the medically well-educated. [:)]
WSJ Article entitled: “Some Vaccines Last a Lifetime. Here’s Why Covid-19 Shots Don’t.”
(It’s behind a paywall, so I’ve put down several excerpts.)
The effectiveness depends on the magnitude of the immune response a vaccine induces, how fast the resulting antibodies decay, whether the virus or bacteria tend to mutate, and the location of the infection.
The threshold of protection is the level of immunity that’s sufficient to keep from getting sick. For every bug, it’s different, and even how it’s determined varies.
“Basically, it’s levels of antibodies or neutralizing antibodies per milliliter of blood,” said Mark Slifka, a professor at Oregon Health & Science University.
(T-cells also contribute to protection, but antibodies are easier to measure.)
Historically, the most effective vaccines have used replicating viruses, which essentially elicit lifelong immunity.
Non-replicating vaccines and protein-based vaccines (such as the one for tetanus) don’t last as long, but their effectiveness can be enhanced with the addition of an adjuvant—a substance that enhances the magnitude of the response.
With these diseases, the magnitudes of response to the vaccines combined with the antibodies’ rates of decay produce durable immune responses: Measles antibodies decay slowly. Tetanus antibodies decay more quickly, but the vaccine causes the body to produce far more than it needs, offsetting the decline.
“We’re fortunate with tetanus, diphtheria, measles and vaccinia,” Dr. Slifka said. “We have identified what the threshold of protection is. You track antibody decline over time, and if you know the threshold of protection, you can calculate durability of protection. With Covid, we don’t know.”
The information in this article seems misleading to me, but I want to know if that is because (a) it is oversimplifying, (b) it is ignoring key aspects of the immune process, and/or (c) is deliberately misleading the readers.
– It is my understanding that *most vaccines* motivate the adaptive immune system, which includes specific antibody producing memory B cells taking up residence in the bone marrow to produce specific antibodies “on demand” as well as memory T cells. The article gives a nod to memory T cells, which I do understand as being harder to detect.
– I *think* that the vaccine adjuvants are supposed to help get the adaptive immune system motivated to create “memory” cells??
– This article suggests that antibodies instigated by vaccines simply wane over time, implying that there is no function of memory B cells in the bone marrow that can quickly “ramp up” production should the need arise.
– I have a vague understanding that some memory B cells in the bone marrow are “for life,” but that others may not be life-long. Is this accurate? Or is there a situation where some memory B cells simply don’t take up residence in the bone marrow, and therefore fade out over time, meaning that the antibodies that they code for will eventually not be a large enough response to combat a particular invader? (Implying that memory B cells in bone marrow are generally “for life.” Possibly that memory B cells in bone marrow are there because it took a great deal of effort from the adaptive immune system to rout out the invader, and when it takes less effort, they don’t bother to migrate to the bone marrow?)
– I remember an article or two about six months ago studying natural immunity, and finding that there is a durable “memory” response, — i.e. covid infection generally causes memory T cells to be formed, and memory B cells to migrate to the bone marrow, providing “life long” immunity — and I remember a sentence supposing that this should be the same for vaccine recipients. However, I have seen no medical studies on whether or not the covid vaccines are producing memory B cells that are confirmed to take up residence in the bone marrow, and I remember nothing about memory T cells to covid spike protein being measured post vaccination (in the covid naive) either. Is this a major failure of the vaccine? — failing to create any sort of durable immune response?
– Perhaps those who have foisted this vaccine upon us knew (through animal studies of similar vaccines) that these vaccines would not create memory B cells residing in the bone marrow, and/or memory T cells to the spike protein, and THAT is why no medical studies to see if this happens have been commissioned and published?
