Supreme Court overturns a woman’s constitutional right to abortion | added June 25
Editor’s Note: Here is a link to the 26 states that are likely to ban abortion. — mmd
The Supreme Court on Friday eliminated the constitutional right to obtain an abortion, casting aside 49 years of precedent that began with Roe v. Wade. The decision by Justice Samuel Alito will set off a seismic shift in reproductive rights across the United States. It will allow states to ban abortion, and experts expect about half the states to do so.
In one of the most anticipated rulings in decades, the court overturned Roe, which first declared a constitutional right to abortion in 1973, and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which re-affirmed that right in 1992. The decision followed the leak in early May of a draft opinion showing that a majority of the justices were privately poised to take that step. On Friday, they made it official.
The vote to overturn Roe was 5-4. Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett joined Alito’s opinion. Chief Justice John Roberts did not join the opinion. He agreed with the majority that the Mississippi abortion restriction at issue in the case should be upheld, but in a separate opinion, he argued that the court should not have overturned Roe.
Pfizer claims tweaked ‘covid’ shots are safe and effective against ‘super-contagious’ omicron variants | added June 25
Pfizer announced Saturday that tweaking its COVID-19 vaccine to better target the omicron variant is safe and works — just days before regulators debate whether to offer Americans updated booster shots this fall.
The vaccines currently used in the U.S. still offer strong protection against severe COVID-19 disease and death — especially if people have gotten a booster dose. But those vaccines target the original coronavirus strain and their effectiveness against any infection dropped markedly when the super-contagious omicron mutant emerged.
Now with omicron’s even more transmissible relatives spreading widely, the Food and Drug Administration is considering ordering a recipe change for the vaccines made by both Pfizer and rival Moderna in hopes that modified boosters could better protect against another COVID-19 surge expected this fall and winter.
NY Mayor Eric Adams not enforcing private business ‘covid’ shot mandate | added June 25
Mayor Eric Adams of New York City has not enforced the city’s coronavirus vaccine mandate for employees at private businesses, and has no plans to begin inspecting businesses or begin fining those that are not in compliance.
Newsday first reported on the lack of enforcement of the vaccine mandate for private employers. “We have been focused on prioritizing education instead of enforcement when it comes to the private sector mandate, which is how we’ve been able to get more than 87 percent of all New Yorkers with their first dose to date,” Fabien Levy, a spokesman for New York City Mayor Eric Adams, said in an email.
Former Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled a vaccine mandate for employees at private businesses in December, the most far-reaching local measure in the United States at the time. The mandate applied to around 184,000 businesses of all sizes with employees who work on-site in New York City.
Forty-five year old man becomes paralyzed after Pfizer ‘covid’ shot, waits for government response | added June 25
More than 11 months after becoming paralyzed from the waist down 12 days after getting his second dose of a Pfizer-BioNTech covid-19 vaccine, Julian Scholefield is waiting for the Canadian government’s decision on his request for compensation.
“I’m paralyzed now, not because of a reckless accident, but because I followed the guidelines of our government, and so that validation and recognition is definitely something that would mean a lot to me,” Scholefield told CBC News.
Scholefield, a 45-year-old in British Columbia, was diagnosed with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), a rare neurological disorder that causes inflammation of the brain and spinal cord that damages myelin — the protective covering of nerve fibers. “My life has become a daily struggle and my wife and children must provide care and assistance for me,” Scholefield said.
European Parliament votes to renew EU Digital ‘Covid’ Certificate for another year despite negative public feedback | added June 25
Acting on a proposal of the European Commission, the European Parliament, as expected, voted yesterday to renew the EU Digital Covid Certificate for another year. The vote was 453 for, 119 against and 19 abstentions.
The certificate regulation had been scheduled to expire on June 30. Earlier this month, a delegation from the parliament had already reached a “political agreement” with the Commission on renewing the certificate, thus making yesterday’s vote virtually a foregone conclusion.
The certificate regulation was originally adopted in June of last year, ostensibly to facilitate “safe travel” between EU member states. But the EU digital certificate quickly evolved into the model and sometimes infrastructure for the domestic “health” or covid passes that would serve to restrict access to many other areas of social life over the following year. The EU has opted to extend the covid certificate despite the overwhelmingly negative results of a public consultation on the subject that was launched by the European Commission under the heading of “Have Your Say” and that was open to the public from February 3 to April 8.
CDC announces Missoula County in ‘high covid alert’ after large number of hospital workers test positive | added June 25
MISSOULA – Missoula County moved into the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s high covid-19 risk level. According to MCCHD, local hospitals are reporting large numbers of staff are currently out due to testing positive for covid-19 themselves.
“We have a perfect storm of highly infectious subvariants, little to no covid precautions being taken, and waning immunity among individuals who were among the first to be vaccinated and boosted,” explained Health Officer D’Shane Barnett.
MCCHD notes that this week, approximately 3% of Missoula County’s population became eligible for covid-19 vaccines after the CDC gave final approval to the 6-month to 5-year age group. Parents and guardians are being encouraged by the health department to get young children protected and boosted against covid-19.
What is the abortion ruling really about? | added June 25
A few hours ago the Supreme Court of United States (SCOTUS) confirmed their ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, the case which set the precedent for abortion as a human right in the US back in the 1970s.
As soon as this decision was first “leaked” a few months ago it became the trending topic all across the US and to a certain extent the rest of the anglosphere. Since it was confirmed this afternoon, the already supercharged dialogue has reached new heights.
Pro-choice pundits, politicians and celebrities have been flooding the cyber public square with comparisons to the Handmaid’s Tale and other forced memes. They argue abortion-on-demand is a fundamental right, and take up the rather unsettling position that having an abortion is a point of pride. On the other side of the divide Christians, traditionalists and republican politicians argue for the sanctity of all life, regardless of context or complication.
Does the vaccine apparatus really think the acronym “sudden adult death syndrome” will make deaths seem ‘normal’? | added June 25
Like this one, reported in The Daily Mail:
“’We were getting ready for bed,’ she said. ‘And basically, in that moment, that’s when my life changed forever. He was looking at me and he just collapsed.
“’He was talking to me one minute. He literally finished one sentence and asked me a question and I turned around to answer.
“’I answered it and he didn’t reply. I turned around, and he was still standing at that point. But then he started to collapse.
“’He just fell in a heap on the floor. I thought at first he fainted because he’d fainted previously.
In memory of all those who “died suddenly” in the United States, June 14-20 | added June 25
Six firefighters in the US, two TV journalists in Ireland, a Chinese AI scientist, three young dads in the UK, six strange drownings and six strange accidents in Italy (Europe’s death camp), and more.
‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ actor Tyler Sanders dead at 18
June 17, 2022
Actor Tyler Sanders of “9-1-1: Lone Star” has died at the age of 18.
An autopsy will be done to determine a cause of death, Pedro Tapia, Sanders’ representative, told Fox News Digital. Tapia confirmed Sanders’ death is being investigated.
“Tyler was a talented actor with a bright future,” Tapia told Fox News Digital. Sanders came from a “wonderful family,” the rep added.
Let’s stay focused on the bigger picture and what’s really going— over reach of power.
Editor’s Note: On Jan. 14, 2020, WHO held a press briefing where it said that, “It is certainly possible that there is limited human-to-human transmission” of the claimed virus. Yet the same day, they admit in their risk assessment that additional investigation was “needed to ascertain the presence of human-to-human transmission.” And on that very same day, Jan. 14, 2020, WHO sent a tweet saying that Chinese authorities have found “no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission” of the claimed virus. — efc
‘Covid’ ripple effect: Staff shortages are keeping hospitals backed up with limited patient care | added June 24
Covid patients aren’t directly overwhelming hospitals right now, but ripple effects of the pandemic are keeping beds full and patients away from the care they need. Most nursing homes are limiting new patients because of staffing shortages, driving the average hospital stay up to be longer than it was pre-pandemic.
In Washington, about 10% of patients currently in hospital beds no longer need hospital care, said Cassie Sauer, chief executive officer of the Washington State Hospital Association. Most are waiting for a spot at a nursing home or mental health facility.
“It’s a national phenomenon,” said Sauer, who has experienced the effects first-hand. A family member’s hospital discharge was delayed after two nursing homes she was interested in closed for Covid outbreaks.
White House coordinator Dr. Ashish K. Jha, remains hopeful billions more in ‘covid’ pandemic aid will materialize despite Republican objections | added June 24
President Biden’s coronavirus response coordinator said Thursday that he remained optimistic that Congress would approve billions of dollars in new emergency aid to fight covid, even as Republicans on Capitol Hill have made clear the aid package is all but dead.
“I’m an eternal optimist,” the coordinator, Dr. Ashish K. Jha, told reporters during a White House briefing. “I remain convinced that Congress is not going to walk away at this point in the pandemic, when we have made so much progress.”
But while Dr. Jha may be an optimist, the mood among Senate Republicans is pessimistic; some even assert the White House lied to them earlier this spring when officials said that, without new aid, the administration would have no money to purchase vaccines and antiviral drugs. More recently, the White House said it was taking money out of other programs to buy the drugs and shots.
Scientists claim ‘covid’ vaccines saved 20 million lives during first year rollout | added June 24
Nearly 20 million lives were saved by covid-19 vaccines during their first year, but even more deaths could have been prevented if international targets for the shots had been reached, researchers reported Thursday.
On Dec. 8, 2020, a retired shop clerk in England received the first shot in what would become a global vaccination campaign. Over the next 12 months, more than 4.3 billion people around the world lined up for the vaccines. The effort, though marred by persisting inequities, prevented deaths on an unimaginable scale, said Oliver Watson of Imperial College London, who led the new modeling study.
“Catastrophic would be the first word that comes to mind,” Watson said of the outcome if vaccines hadn’t been available to fight the coronavirus. The findings “quantify just how much worse the pandemic could have been if we did not have these vaccines.”
Pfizer, Moderna ‘covid’ vaccines may increase risk of infection, according to a new study | added June 24
The protection conferred by natural immunity, vaccination, and both against symptomatic severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection with the BA.1 or BA.2 sublineages of the omicron (B.1.1.529) variant is unclear.
We conducted a national, matched, test-negative, case–control study in Qatar from December 23, 2021, through February 21, 2022, to evaluate the effectiveness of vaccination with BNT162b2 (Pfizer–BioNTech) or mRNA-1273 (Moderna), natural immunity due to previous infection with variants other than omicron, and hybrid immunity (previous infection and vaccination) against symptomatic omicron infection and against severe, critical, or fatal coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).
The effectiveness of previous infection alone against symptomatic BA.2 infection was 46.1% (95% confidence interval [CI], 39.5 to 51.9). The effectiveness of vaccination with two doses of BNT162b2 and no previous infection was negligible (−1.1%; 95% CI, −7.1 to 4.6), but nearly all persons had received their second dose more than 6 months earlier.
Another ‘polio outbreak’ makes mainstream news — WHO, Gates propose rescue plans, shots, more of the same | added June 24
Polio is on the front pages of British newspapers again for the first time in decades. What a time to be alive. For those who missed it, two days ago the UK government declared a “national incident” after traces of the polio virus were detected in sewage from North London.
Yes, a “national incident”…for traces…found in sewage. This is a massive escalation, even compared to the pandemic. Covid and Monkeypox at least had the good taste to wait for a single person to actually have the disease (allegedly) before hitting the big red panic button.
In a somewhat startling coincidence, just two days before the “polio in London” news broke, Forbes published an article headlined…
There May Be A New Polio Epidemic On Its Way- If So, What We Can Do
Nonprofit sues FDA after being denied access to documents related to Moderna’s approved Spikevax ‘covid’ shot | added June 24
A nonprofit group is suing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in an effort to obtain documents relating to the FDA’s approval of Moderna’s Spikevax covid-19 vaccine after the agency told the group there was “no compelling need” to expedite the release of the documents.
Dallas, Texas-based Defending the Republic on June 7 filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. This is the same court that previously ordered the release of the FDA’s documents pertaining to the approval of the Pfizer covid-19 vaccine, rejecting the FDA’s proposed release schedule that would have meant those documents would be made public over a period of 75 years.
The FDA granted full approval of Spikevax on Jan. 31. Just a few days later, on Feb. 3, Defending the Republic filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the FDA, “seeking the expedited production of records relating to the FDA’s approval of the Moderna covid-19 vaccine.”
Twitter bans epidemiologist Dr. Andrew Bostom over posting a link to a ‘covid’ vaccine and sperm study | added June 24
Dr. Andrew Bostom, an epidemiologist who had over 47,000 followers and who was a significant dissenting figure during the coronavirus pandemic, has been permanently banned from Twitter after posting a peer-reviewed study on covid vaccination effects.
According to a screenshot posted by free-market policy analyst and political organizer Phil Kerpen, Dr. Bostom was locked out for linking to an Israeli study titled “Covid-19 vaccination BNT162b2 temporarily impairs semen concentration and total motile count among semen donors.”
Dr. Bostom made several appearances in the media and qualified as an expert witness in epidemiology in a lawsuit filed by parents against an executive order in Rhode Island requiring children to wear masks in schools. According to the plaintiffs, Gov. Dan McKee did not have the authority to impose a mask mandate for children.
‘Monkeypox’ shots will be offered for ‘at-risk’ bi-sexual and gay men | added June 24
This could help to control the recent outbreak of the rare virus in the UK in which 793 people have been infected so far. Monkeypox is not defined as a sexually-transmitted infection.
But it can be passed on by close contact during sex, and with bedding, towels and skin. The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) says that a vaccine designed to protect against smallpox, called Imvanex, will help protect people who could be exposed to monkeypox.
The vaccine is effective against monkeypox because it is from the same family of viruses. Its use has been signed off by the UK’s vaccine experts, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). Health officials say they are continuing to see “a notable proportion of cases in gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men”.

Renegade omicron subvariants escape antibodies from ‘covid’ shots and natural immunity, according to new data and research | added June 23
Omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5 appear to escape antibody responses among both people who had previous covid-19 infection and those who have been fully vaccinated and boosted, according to new data from researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, of Harvard Medical School.
However, covid-19 vaccination is still expected to provide substantial protection against severe disease, and vaccine makers are working on updated shots that might elicit a stronger immune response against the variants.
The levels of neutralizing antibodies that a previous infection or vaccinations elicit are several times lower against the BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants compared with the original coronavirus, according to the new research published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Wednesday.
United Kingdom admits newly detected polio virus derived from vaccines | added June 23
(Bloomberg) — Britain’s polio-free status could be at risk for the first time in almost two decades after several samples of vaccine-derived poliovirus were found during routine London sewage testing.
Several closely related viruses were found in samples taken in north and east London between February and May. The findings suggest some spread between closely linked individuals and the virus has continued to evolve and is now classified as a vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2, the UK Health Security Agency said Wednesday.
Polio can on rare occasions cause serious illness, such as paralysis, in people are not fully vaccinated. No cases of polio or associated paralysis have been reported, according to the agency. The health agency is working with other bodies, including the World Health Organization, to urgently investigate the matter to understand the extent of the transmission.
Major Florida grocery chain Publix will abstain from offering ‘covid’ shots to children younger than 5 years | added June 23
Health officials approved covid-19 vaccines for children as young as 6 months last week, but Florida-based Publix will not be offering the Moderna and Pfizer shots to children younger than 5.
A spokesperson for the supermarket, which is headquartered in Lakeland and has nearly 1,300 locations across the southeast, confirmed the news to Fox 13 Tampa Bay on Wednesday.
About two-thirds of Publix stores are in Florida, which was the only state not to preorder vaccines from the federal government in anticipation of them being approved for toddlers. While vaccines won’t be available for the youngest kids at county health departments in Florida, many private health care providers throughout the state are offering them to some children younger than 5.
Moderna’s bivalent vax targeting omicron subvariants to be ready by August | added June 23
Moderna expects a new covid-19 vaccine the drugmaker is developing that it says offers protection against the omicron variant of the virus to be ready for public distribution by August.
The company has been manufacturing shots of the vaccine, called mRNA-1273.214, ahead of it getting regulatory approval in order to be ready for the fall and winter, when health experts say covid-19 could flare.
Clinical trial data shows that the Moderna’s so-called bivalent booster vaccine candidate is highly effective against the BA.4 and BA.5 omicron subvariants of the virus, which Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said in a statement “represent an emergent threat to global public health.”
Concerned Tennessee lawmakers push to delay ‘covid’ shot distribution for infants | added June 23
Top Republican House leaders in Tennessee are urging Gov. Bill Lee to delay the state’s health department from distributing and promoting covid-19 vaccines to infants, toddlers and preschoolers., according to a report from the Associated Press.
In a letter sent the governor, the four Republican House leaders said they had many concerns about the vaccine for kids under 5 years old. The shots for kids in that age group began rolling out this week.
A portion of the letter reads: “We simply cannot recommend injecting an mRNA vaccine into children who have never been at serious risk of death or hospitalization from covid-19.” The lawmakers said the “covid-19 emergency has long passed in Tennessee,” but some health experts dispute that claim.
Landmark Supreme Court ruling upholds lawsuits claiming Monsanto’s Roundup caused cancer | added June 23
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to hear a bid from Bayer-owned Monsanto that aimed to challenge thousands of lawsuits claiming its weedkiller Roundup causes cancer — a potentially costly ruling, AFP reported Tuesday.
The high court did not explain its decision, which left intact a $25 million ruling in favor of a California man who alleged he developed cancer after using the chemical for years. The decision marks a major blow to the German conglomerate’s legal fight against Roundup-related cases, and Bayer has set aside more than $15 billion to deal with a wave of U.S. lawsuits linked to the weedkiller.
“Bayer respectfully disagrees with the Supreme Court’s decision,” the company said in a statement. “The company believes that the decision undermines the ability of companies to rely on official actions taken by expert regulatory agencies,” it added, referring to a 2020 federal finding that Roundup’s active ingredient is not risky.
Alarming levels of 29 chemicals linked to infertility found in men’s urine | added June 23
Semen quality, assessed in terms of sperm concentration and total sperm counts, continues to decline in Western countries (Levine et al., 2017). Fewer studies are available from non-Western countries, but recently, reports of alarming declines among healthy semen donors in China have appeared (Yuan et al. 2018).
The proportion of men with normal total motile sperm count, a measure highly relevant to fertilisation success, was found to have declined by approximately 10% between 2002 and 2017 in a population of men presenting to fertility centres in Spain and the USA (Tiegs et al. 2019). Similar observations were made among sperm donors (Chang et al. 2018).
The causes of these worrying developments are not fully elucidated but are likely to be complex. Lifestyle factors such as illicit drug use and maternal smoking during pregnancy play a role, as do poor nutrition, stress and genetic factors (Skakkebæk et al., 2022, Skakkebaek et al., 2016). It has been hypothesised that these problems are also linked to chemical exposures that originate from the use of fossil fuels in electricity generation, transport, petrochemistry, and most importantly plastic production (Skakkebaek et al., 2022).
Distracting ‘covid’ origins story obfuscates illegal mandates and loss of freedom | added June 23
The theory that “covid” originated in a bio-lab has been back in the headlines over the last few weeks, serving as a prime example of the type of fake binary OffG has been warning you about. The “lab-leak theory” – which pushes the idea Sars-Cov-2 was bio-engineered in a lab as a “gain-of-function” program, and then either accidentally or deliberately released on an unsuspecting population – first came to the front pages as early as January 2020.
At the time it was deemed a “racist” “anti-china” conspiracy theory” by the vast majority of the media, and it fell away from the narrative. It had a resurgence in 2021, suddenly & inexplicably becoming not racist anymore.
In February 2021 the World Health Organization published a report finding the lab origin for covid19 “extremely unlikely”. But WHO chief Tedro Adhanom was obviously keen not to let the idea die completely, publicly stating “more investigation was needed”.
WHO considers the announcement of ‘monkeypox’ as a global ’emergency’ | added June 23
LONDON, June 23 (Reuters) – The World Health Organization will decide on Thursday whether to declare monkeypox a global health emergency, stirring criticism from leading African scientists who say it has been a crisis in their region for years.
The deliberations and scrutiny of the WHO’s response to the outbreak follows concerns over how the United Nations agency and governments worldwide handled covid-19 in early 2020. A “public health emergency of international concern” is WHO’s highest level of alert. The agency does not declare pandemics, but it did start using the term to describe covid-19 in March 2020.
For many governments, that – rather than WHO’s earlier declaration of an emergency in January – was the moment they began to take real action to try to contain covid, which proved to be too late to make a difference.

What is the ‘covid’ truth? | added June 22
The covid-19 pandemic is one of the most manipulated infectious disease events in history, characterized by official lies in an unending stream led by government bureaucracies, medical associations, medical boards, the media, and international agencies.[ 3 , 6 , 57 ] We have witnessed a long list of unprecedented intrusions into medical practice, including attacks on medical experts, destruction of medical careers among doctors refusing to participate in killing their patients and a massive regimentation of health care, led by non-qualified individuals with enormous wealth, power and influence.
For the first time in American history a president, governors, mayors, hospital administrators and federal bureaucrats are determining medical treatments based not on accurate scientifically based or even experience based information, but rather to force the acceptance of special forms of care and “prevention”—including remdesivir, use of respirators and ultimately a series of essentially untested messenger RNA vaccines.
For the first time in history medical treatment, protocols are not being formulated based on the experience of the physicians treating the largest number of patients successfully, but rather individuals and bureaucracies that have never treated a single patient—including Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, EcoHealth Alliance, the CDC, WHO, state public health officers and hospital administrators.
Call to Action: End Moderna’s EUA application to inject children | added June 22
Hello friends and fellow activists,
As many of you have likely become aware, Pfizer’s and Moderna’s EUA applications for children ages 6 months to 5 years and 6 months to 6 years, respectively, were approved in the last week.
Today there is yet another opportunity to be heard, thanks to Toby Rogers for passing along the information. Tomorrow is the vote, so please act now if you are so inclined !
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices is still going to vote on Thursday June 23, on Moderna’s EUA application to inject mRNA into kids 6 to 17. You can still register a formal comment (here) — look for the blue comment button in the upper left hand corner or upload your own file. I also have a Substack article with email addresses for all of the key CDC staffers and ACIP members so that you can write to them directly.
Then, eight days from now the FDA is going to vote on the “Future Framework”. It’s a proposal to exempt Covid-19 vaccine manufacturers from clinical trials for reformulated shots. It’s literally the worst idea in the history of public health. I have a Substack article that explains this heinous proposal in detail — with a call to action at the end that I am asking everyone to do.
Graphene is the new glyphosate: Scientists claim graphene is ‘harmless’ despite clear evidence of its toxicity | added June 22
On June 17, “in a historic victory for farmworkers and the environment, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit sided with Center for Food Safety … by overturning the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) decision that the toxic pesticide glyphosate is safe for humans and imperiled wildlife.” (source)
How many years and how many ruined lives did it take? Many. And even now, this doesn’t meant that glyphosate is going to vanish. First of all, it’s everywhere, from horizon to horizon. It is in the food, in the water, in the soil, you name it. Second of all, the nature of bullies is to only retreat when they are completely decimated and embarrassed.
And even then, disgraced industry execs find ways to regroup, perhaps migrate to a different industry, and continue pushing unsafe products using same old marketing gimmicks (which is what happened when Big Tobacco execs moved to the food industry, which I wrote about in a recent story.) Cynically, the glyphosate market is expected to grow.
Group of doctors and educators concerned about harm to children urge Biden administration to lift all ‘covid’ mandates | added June 22
WASHINGTON — A group of prominent doctors and educators has asked the Biden administration to lift pandemic-related measures that could be causing children to miss school and other activities.
“We strongly urge you to revise the CDC’s covid-19 guidelines with regard to testing, isolation, and vaccine recommendations for children to ensure that public health policies are not doing more harm than good,” says a letter sent by Urgency of Normal — a group that has argued for a steady return to pre-pandemic behaviors — to Dr. Ashish Jha, director of the White House pandemic response team, and Rochelle Walensky, head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“The CDC’s covid-19 school guidelines continue to cause significant disruption to children’s education and to working parents, while providing no demonstrable public health benefit in limiting covid-19 spread. These policies have serious unintended consequences,” the Urgency of Normal letter argues.
NYC families prepare to inoculate their children with experimental ‘covid’ shots | added June 22
Families in New York City were preparing to vaccinate children younger than 5 against covid-19 on Wednesday as the first doses were expected to become available after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention endorsed the vaccines over the weekend.
In a city that was once the epicenter of the covid pandemic, many parents have been eager to vaccinate the last age group still awaiting shots, the youngest children, and moved quickly to book appointments.
Some health providers planned to start offering vaccines to young children on Wednesday, including pharmacies like Walgreens, which serve children 3 and older. The city’s 10 vaccine hubs, which serve children 6 months and older, were also expected to open, and appointments were available on the city’s “Vaccine Finder” website.
Newly released Pfizer-BioNTech ‘covid’ data reveals majority of serious adverse reactions were classified as not vaccine related | added June 22
The latest release by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of Pfizer-BioNTech covid-19 vaccine documents reveals numerous instances of participants who sustained severe adverse events during Phase 3 trials. Some of these participants withdrew from the trials, some were dropped and some died.
The 80,000-page document cache includes an extensive set of Case Report Forms (CRFs) from Pfizer Phase 3 trials conducted at various locations in the U.S., in addition to other documentation pertaining to participants in Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine trials in the U.S. and worldwide.
The FDA on June 1 released the documents, which pertain to the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the vaccine, as part of a court-ordered disclosure schedule stemming from an expedited Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed in August 2021. Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency (PHMPT), a group of doctors and public health professionals, submitted the FOIA request.
NYC lowers ‘covid alert’ levels as Broadway switches to mask optional for theater | added June 22
New York City health officials downgraded the five boroughs’ covid risk level to medium on Tuesday, just more than a month after it escalated the status to high as a fifth pandemic wave fueled by the most contagious variants yet gripped America.
The medium risk level means indoor masking is recommended when around others whose vaccination status isn’t known but it isn’t accompanied by any more stringent covid protocol. The change had been expected for the last week and a half, since the city’s top doctor assured New Yorkers in a lengthy Twitter thread that the latest peak had passed and the mayor followed up by lifting the controversial toddler mask rule.
“Day after day, New Yorkers are stepping up and doing their part, and because of our collective efforts we are winning the fight against covid-19,” Mayor Eric Adams and NYC Department of Health & Hygiene Commissioner Dr. Ashwin Vasan said in a joint statement announcing the transition. “This surge has taught us a lot about how the virus is currently behaving, and how to prepare for the coming weeks and months.”

So, the government of New Normal Germany is contemplating forcing everyone to wear medical-looking masks in public from October to Easter on a permanent basis.
Seriously, the fanatical New Normal fascists currently in charge of Germany’s government — mostly the SPD and the Greens — are discussing revising the “Infection Protection Act” in order to grant themselves the authority to continue to rule the country by decree, as they have been doing since the Autumn of 2020, thus instituting a “permanent state of emergency” that overrides the German constitution, indefinitely.
Go ahead, read that paragraph again. Take a break from the carnage in non-Nazi Ukraine, the show trials in the US congress, monkeypoxmania, Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, Sudden Bovine Death Syndrome, family-oriented drag queens, non-“vaccine”-related facial paralysis, and Biden falling off his bike, and reflect on what this possibly portends, the dominant country of the European Union dispensing with any semblance of democracy and transforming into a fascist biosecurity police state.
Fully vaxed actress Mayim Bialik has “new level” of anxiety about going outside maskless after contracting ‘covid’ again | added June 22
Mayim Bialik is feeling better after contracting an “exhausting” case of covid-19. In an Instagram video posted Tuesday, Bialik said she’s not surprised she caught the virus, despite her vaccination status.
“No one said that you wouldn’t get covid if you were vaccinated and boosted,” said Bialik in the video. “That’s totally clear.” The “Call Me Kat” star also shared she has “a new level of anxiety about going out” after getting sick. “I feel guilty that I went out,” said Bialik, who’s been traveling. “I feel sad, and I’m just worried about the world again and our health in the world.”
Bialik revealed her positive covid-19 status in an Instagram video posted Monday. “It’s bound to find us and it did,” she said of the virus. Standing in her kitchen while heating up some lemon juice, the 46-year-old actress playfully listed off the various remedies she was using in her recovery, including zinc, vitamin C and a neti pot filled with diluted Thieves oil.

President Biden and first lady to visit DC clinic offering experimental ‘covid’ shots to children under 5 years | added June 21
President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden will visit a Washington, DC, vaccine clinic offering covid-19 vaccinations to children under the age of 5 on Tuesday, a White House official told CNN, in an effort to highlight the rollout of the newly authorized vaccines for the youngest Americans.
The White House official previewing the visit to CNN said the President and first lady will visit “a local covid-19 vaccination clinic hosted by the District of Columbia’s Department of Health (DC Health) to highlight the recent authorization and recommendation of covid-19 vaccines for children under age five.”
Later in the day, the President will deliver remarks at the White House focused “on covid-19 vaccines for children under 5, and the historic progress the country has made in fighting covid-19 with safe, effective vaccines available to virtually all Americans,” the official added.
NYC Mayor Eric Adams bribes unvaxed employees with another ‘shot’ to get job back | added June 21
Internal memos delivered Friday to unvaccinated ex-employees told recipients they have an “opportunity to return to employment if [they] become fully vaccinated.” The ex-workers have until June 30 to get the first dose and make arrangements for a second dose by August 15.
“Once you provide proof of full vaccination (both doses), you will be reinstated to your civil service title at your most recent salary within two weeks of submission of proof of full vaccination, with no change to benefits or break in service,” said Marisa Caggiano, the NYPD’s assistant commissioner for human resources in a letter to fired agency workers.
‘Sudden adult death syndrome’ has become the latest tragedy | added June 21
Media outlets around the world have started highlighting a medical phenomenon called ‘sudden adult death syndrome’ – people dying with no sign of illness or underlying health condition. They simply collapse during the day or don’t wake up in the morning. While SADS has been known to occur before, what’s alarming is the sudden surge of this previously rare event.
STORY AT-A-GLANCE: In recent weeks, media outlets around the world have started highlighting a medical phenomenon called “sudden adult death syndrome,” or SADS, in what appears to be a clear effort to obscure the reality of covid jab deaths.
Sad on steroids indeed. Underlying factors for SADS include undiagnosed myocarditis, inflammatory conditions and other conditions that cause irregularities in the electrical system of the heart, thereby triggering cardiac arrest. While SADS has been known to occur previously, what’s new is the prevalence of this previously rare event. In Australia, the Melbourne Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute is setting up a new SADS registry “to gain more information” about the phenomenon.
The negative effects of ‘covid’ shots on male reproductive health | added June 21
As they say, the difference between a conspiracy theory and reality is a few months to a few years.
I am sure that the fact checkers will come out and say that the study was taken out of context, or maybe the journal will take it down altogether—but in the meanwhile, you have probably seen this (and it disgusts me to cite it because it is cruel to experiment on unsuspecting people).
It is also soothing to know that an intentionally self-spreading variation of the shot is being trialed. We are in good hands. All is normal. Just a little Fourth Industrial Revolution here and there. Jeez. We are ruled by the people who are not qualified to lead anyone anywhere because they are cray-cray, predatory, and don’t seem to relate to the rest of the human species.
North Korea prepares to declare ‘victory’ over ‘covid’ outbreak after just one month | added June 21
SEOUL, South Korea — It’s only been a month since North Korea acknowledged having a covid-19 outbreak, after steadfastly denying any cases for more than two years. But already it may be preparing to declare victory.
According to state media, North Korea has avoided the mass deaths many expected in a nation with one of the world’s worst health care systems, little or no access to vaccines, and what outsiders see as a long record of ignoring the suffering of its people.
North Korea’s official virus numbers, experts believe, have as much to do with propaganda to boost leader Kim Jong Un as with a true picture of what’s happening in the country, and there’s widespread doubt about their accuracy.
Israeli study blames weakened immune systems on rapid rate of ‘covid’ variants | added June 21
Editor’s Note: This is absolutely ridiculous and reminds me of another medical phenomenon with so called ‘auto-immune disease’. Mainstream medical research and science blames the individual’s immune system for causing disease; meanwhile the primary question of what the immune system is actually attacking is completely disregarded. It is a coverup and needs to end. — mmd
Although covid-19 infections are much less deadly than during their first year, the cunning and elusive virus has since developed a large number of mutations far exceeding the rate that was initially observed. Where do these variants come and what circumstances empower them?
Virus “detectives” at Tel Aviv University (TAU) and Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center have uncovered the answers. Patients with weakened immune systems from chronic diseases and those given medications that reduce the body’s ability to fight invading pathogens are at risk for chronic infection and develop several highly mutated coronavirus variants.
Although this is disconcerting, there is also some good news: While many different variants are formed in immunocompromised patients, these mutated forms are less likely to spread to others.
CDC claims the recent outbreaks of pediatric hepatitis does not exceed pre-‘covid’ levels | added June 21
In response to the current pediatric hepatitis outbreak possibly linked to adenovirus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found current data do not suggest an increase in pediatric hepatitis cases or adenovirus types 40/41 from the time the outbreak began compared to pre-covid-19 pandemic levels, according to a recent Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
“Data from four large administrative databases were analyzed to assess trends in pediatric hepatitis and percentage of stool specimens positive for adenovirus type 40/41,” the CDC said.
“Although this ecologic analysis cannot conclusively confirm or refute a potential association between pediatric hepatitis and adenovirus, it provides useful context for the ongoing investigation.”
Four times FDA was dead wrong about ‘approved’ drugs: Vioxx, Belviq, and deadly drug combos | added June 21
Throughout the pandemic, health officials have urged the public to “trust the science,” reassuring people that “the science” is the basis for any recommendations originating from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical advisor to President Biden on covid-19, at one point even went as far as to tell the media if they criticize him, “They’re really criticizing science because I represent science. That’s dangerous.” In the U.S., the FDA approves new drugs, including vaccines — or, as is the case with covid-19 vaccines, grants them Emergency Use Authorization. The CDC then recommends them.
Once that process is completed, it’s assumed the public — and the mainstream media — will unquestionably trust that the drugs or other treatments are safe and effective. But as we’ve seen recently — when Newsweek last week broke with mainstream media and published two opinion pieces criticizing the U.S. government’s response to covid-19 and claiming Americans don’t trust the CDC — not everyone buys everything the FDA and CDC are selling.
Three more people “die suddenly” and do not make the news | added June 21
Reported by subscribers, three others have “died suddenly”—one in East Nashville, two in the Spanish town of La Carolina—without its making any news.

CDC endorses ‘covid’ drug for America’s youngest despite 1.3 million injuries reported on VAERS | added June 20
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released new data showing a total of 1,301,356 reports of adverse events following covid-19 vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and June 10, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). That’s an increase of 6,027 adverse events over the previous week.
VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S. The data included a total of 28,859 reports of deaths — an increase of 327 over the previous week — and 238,412 serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 1,645 compared with the previous week.
Of the 28,859 reported deaths, 18,719 cases are attributed to Pfizer’s covid-19 vaccine, 7,581 cases to Moderna and 2,493 cases to Johnson & Johnson (J&J). Excluding “foreign reports” to VAERS, 831,801 adverse events, including 13,293 deaths and 84,151 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and June 10, 2022.
Bristol Hospital announces it will eliminate over 30 positions due to environmental and financial pressures of the ‘covid’ pandemic | added June 20
A spokesperson for Bristol Hospital said they’re eliminating over 30 positions due to the ongoing impact of the covid-19 pandemic. Bristol Health said 10 of those roles were presently filled, the majority of which were management. Because of environmental and financial pressures such as labor and supply cost inflation, the healthcare system decided to cut back.
“Health systems will be continually challenged, now and into the foreseeable future, to deliver quality services in the safest possible way more efficiently and effectively,” President and Chief Executive Officer Kurt Barwis said. The hospital’s executive team also voluntarily took an eight percent reduction in their salaries, according to the hospital.
A temporary change to the hospital’s defined contribution retirement plan is impacting hospital employees, too. With all of these changes combined, the hospital said they saved $3.9 million immediately. Bristol Health is getting $5.5 million less in annual operating costs every year.
NJ governor endorses ‘covid’ shot in six month old children after three newly confirmed deaths | added June 20
New Jersey on Sunday reported 1,918 confirmed covid-19 cases and three new confirmed deaths as Gov. Phil Murphy encouraged parents to get their kids inoculated now that vaccines are approved for children as young as six months.
Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for young children six months and older were approved Friday by the Food and Drug Administration and Saturday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The vaccines use the same technology as those for adults, but are being offered at different dose sizes and number of shots for the youngest kids.
“With the authorization of the covid-19 vaccine for children ages 6 months- 5 years, families will have the strongest protection against this virus,” reads a post Saturday from the governor’s Twitter account. “We encourage parents to schedule an appointment for their child.”
WHO chief secretly believes ‘covid’ leaked from a lab after ‘catastrophic accident’, according to a close senior government source | added June 20
The head of the World Health Organisation privately believes the covid pandemic started following a leak from a Chinese laboratory, a senior Government source claims.
While publicly the group maintains that ‘all hypotheses remain on the table’ about the origins of covid, the source said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), had recently confided to a senior European politician that the most likely explanation was a catastrophic accident at a laboratory in Wuhan, where infections first spread during late 2019.
The Mail on Sunday first revealed concerns within Western intelligence services about the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where scientists were manipulating coronaviruses sampled from bats in caves nearly 1,000 miles away – the same caves where covid-19 is suspected to have originated – in April 2020. The worldwide death toll from the covid pandemic is now estimated to have hit more than 18 million.
Local Chinese banks freeze accounts preventing customers from withdrawing money | added June 20
At least three institutions based in Henan Province — Yu Zhou Xin Min Sheng Village Bank, Shangcai Huimin County Bank and Zhecheng Huanghuai Community Bank — have frozen a total of 10 billion yuan ($1.49 billion) in deposits, according to Chinese reports. One million customers are believed to be affected.
All three are small, locally focused banks designed to serve rural populations. Though the People’s Bank of China in 2021 banned banks from accepting deposits outside their business areas, each institution was serving customers nationwide online.
This week in the “new normal” #34: Extreme right weaponizing the outdoors | added June 20
1. The extreme right weaponising the outdoors. Fresh from weaponising memes in 2021, the classics in 2018 and irony in 2016, those pesky alt-righters are back at it – ruining perfectly ordinary things, like going outside.
Yes, according to Vice… White Nationalists Want to Reclaim Nature as a Safe Space for Racists. Which contains this amazing sentence: The racist roots of national parks in America has made them an attraction to white supremacists over the years.
It’s not just going outside that’s the problem, it’s buying local produce from farmers’ markets… Of course, obsessions with purity and clean living aren’t just an American white supremacist thing. Nazi Germany was deeply concerned about the longevity of the Aryan race, and so encouraged a healthy lifestyle and good diet. But eating a natural diet was also a core component of the Nazi slogan “blood and soil”—intended to foster nationalism by eating food grown on the land.
UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid orders NHS to use the word “women” instead of garbled ‘woke’ language | added June 20
The Health Secretary is worried garbled language risks harming patients, a close ally said. The word “women” had been replaced with phrases such as “anyone with ovaries” in an attempt to be inclusive. But NHS Digital has been ordered to think again — and told to run any future changes past senior officials at the Department of Health.
Among web pages affected are ones on diseases that affect only those born female. Child health expert Dr Karleen Gribble, a professor at Western Sydney University, warned: “De-sexed language is less accessible.
“Many people do not even know if they have a cervix or prostate. But they do understand men or women. The potential harm is people don’t respond to public health messaging. It might result in a fatal delay in seeking health care.” Last night, NHS Digital said: “We keep the pages under continual review to ensure they use language that is inclusive, respectful and relevant.”
Air pollution knocks 2.2 years off global life expectancy, according to a new study | added June 20
During the first year of the covid-19 pandemic, the world’s economy slowed. Yet, the global annual average particulate pollution (PM2.5) was largely unchanged from 2019 levels. At the same time, growing evidence shows air pollution—even when experienced at very low levels—hurts human health.
This recently led the World Health Organization (WHO) to revise its guideline for what it considers a safe level of exposure of particulate pollution, bringing most of the world—97.3 percent of the global population—into the unsafe zone. The AQLI finds that particulate air pollution takes 2.2 years off global average life expectancy, or a combined 17 billion life-years, relative to a world that met the WHO guideline.
This impact on life expectancy is comparable to that of smoking, more than three times that of alcohol use and unsafe water, six times that of HIV/AIDS, and 89 times that of conflict and terrorism.
The war on the unvaxed who didn’t buy the official ‘covid’ narrative cannot be forgotten | added June 20
If you refused to buy into the official narrative about the covid shots, you likely found yourself on the receiving end of hateful attacks and rejection. Some of those zealots may now realize they were wrong, but few want to talk about it. How are you choosing to move forward?
Fomenting hatred is a tool of tyrants, and over the past two years, political leaders, agency heads, academics, medical professionals and media personalities alike have publicly encouraged hatred and violence and wished painful death upon anyone who didn’t want to be part of the medical experiment that is the covid jabs.
In an eloquent Medium post, journalist Susan Dunham summarizes the lessons (hopefully) learned from hating and attacking the unvaccinated: “The mandates have let up, and both sides stumble back into something that looks like the old normal — except that there is a fresh and present injury done to the people we tried to break. And no one wants to talk about it.

Attorney Bobbie Anne-Flower Cox interviewed by Viviane Fischer and Dr. Reiner Fuellmich over illegal ‘covid’ regulations | added June 18
Bobbie Anne Flower-Cox – Attorney at Law, New York with focus on representing New Yorkers on matters pertaining to over-reaching government agencies or departments.
About: As an attorney in NY and during this year she has been in a lawsuit against Governor Kathy Hochul and the NY Dept of Health over their illegal “isolation and quarantine camp” regulation. This regulation allows the government to take someone out of their home, quarantine them just because they assume they have been exposed to a disease, and they don’t even have to prove that the person really has a disease. They can even remove just one person from a family unit.
The Corona Committee was founded on the initiative of attorney and economist Viviane Fischer and attorney Dr. Reiner Fuellmich. It is conducting a review of evidence on the Corona crisis and measures.
FDA authorizes experimental ‘covid’ shot for infants and preschoolers, inoculation begins next week | added June 18
U.S. regulators on Friday authorized the first covid-19 shots for infants and preschoolers, paving the way for vaccinations to begin next week.
The Food and Drug Administration’s action follows its advisory panel’s unanimous recommendation for the shots from Moderna and Pfizer. That means U.S. kids under 5 — roughly 18 million youngsters — are eligible for the shots. The nation’s vaccination campaign began about 1 1/2 years ago with older adults, the hardest hit during the coronavirus pandemic.
There’s one step left: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends how to use vaccines. Its independent advisers began debating the two-dose Moderna and the three-dose Pfizer vaccines on Friday and will make its recommendation Saturday. A final signoff is expected soon after from CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky.
Florida allows pediatricians to order ‘covid’ shots for youngest after federal government pressure | added June 18
Facing withering pressure from medical professionals and the federal government, Florida began to allow pediatricians, children’s hospitals and other physicians on Friday to order coronavirus vaccines for the youngest children, according to state and White House officials.
The shift would ensure that families would be able to get the shots at doctors’ offices, though later than in every other state in the country. The White House praised the move as an important first step, calling it a “reversal” by Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican with presidential ambitions who frequently casts himself as a foil to President Biden.
Mr. DeSantis’s administration insisted that it had not budged from its original position and only allowed orders once the Food and Drug Administration authorized the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines for very young children on Friday morning. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention could grant its endorsement on Saturday.
‘Covid’ vax injured pilots join advocacy groups to end illegal industry mandates | added June 18
Sharp chest pains. Myocarditis and pericarditis. Heart attacks. Strokes and subsequent blindness. These are just some of the many covid-19 vaccine-related adverse events reported by commercial airline pilots and by a growing number of advocacy groups representing aviation industry workers.
According to these individuals and groups, the number of pilots speaking out about their vaccine injuries is dwarfed by the number of pilots who are still flying despite experiencing concerning symptoms — but not speaking out because of what they describe as a culture of intimidation within the aviation industry.
These individuals fear they will lose their jobs and livelihoods in retaliation if they reveal their symptoms or go public with their stories, sources told The Defender. Still, a growing number of pilots are coming forward.
Rash of blood clots in young healthy people caused by ‘the heat’? | added June 18
Perhaps you’ve heard about the rash of blood clots in young healthy people, recently? Well don’t you worry your silly head about it, they were caused by dehydration due to the hot weather. Some of them, anyway. Maybe. Definitely the most recent ones, and certainly any you may hear about in the future.
Naturally, any reported spike in blood clots before the summer was nothing to do with the hot weather.
…that was the cold weather. Or maybe it was a long-term side effect of covid19 infection. Or maybe it wasn’t a clot, it was just Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. Or one of the 300,000 symptomless cases of aortic stenosis wandering around.
Or maybe they were suffering from “post-pandemic stress disorder”. Or maybe there weren’t any deaths at all, and the fact-checkers have debunked all of that. It doesn’t matter. Forget it. There’s no point even considering what may or may not have caused the blood clots that may or may not have happened in the past. The point is, in the future, they will be caused by the hot weather.
And nothing else.

First case of ‘monkeypox’ found in Westchester, New York | added June 18
A case of monkeypox had been detected in Westchester County, state health officials have confirmed. The Westchester case is the second detected outside New York City. The state announced on June 7 that monkeypox had been diagnosed in a Sullivan County resident.
Twenty-one cases of monkeypox have been reported in New York State, 19 in New York City. While the risk for monkeypox remains low, Westchester County Health Commissioner Dr. Sherlita Amler said that anyone who experiences symptoms consistent with monkeypox, such as rashes or lesions, should contact their doctor immediately.
Monkeypox is rare and has been showing up in countries where it had not previously been detected. The first U.S. case was discovered in May in Massachusetts. Monkeypox does not usually cause serious illness, but may result in hospitalization or death. Most infections last two to four weeks.

Florida only state that has not preordered ‘covid’ shots for toddlers | added June 17
MIAMI (AP) — Florida is the only state that hasn’t preordered covid-19 vaccines for toddlers in anticipation of their final approval by the federal government, and Gov. Ron DeSantis said Thursday that he won’t facilitate their distribution, though he said they’ll be available to those who want them.
White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre, who confirmed Florida’s outlier status on Thursday, said not preordering the vaccines could mean delaying their availability in children’s hospitals and other facilities that have relied on state distribution of the shots.
Florida officials said the jabs would be available at pharmacies and community health centers, which can preorder them directly from the federal government, and that children’s hospitals and other clinics would be able to order them from the federal government via a state portal and receive them quickly.

Fauci claims ‘covid’ origin evidence points strongly towards natural outbreak | added June 17
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, testified virtually before a Thursday Senate panel about the illness only a day after announcing he had contracted covid-19.
Fauci, when asked if there were any breakthroughs in understanding the origin of covid-19, said that researchers had concluded that it “very, very likely” had its genesis in an animal species.
Additionally, Fauci stated that the disease “almost certainly” spread to human beings in the Wuhan region of China. “There have been a number of papers that have come out from highly qualified virologists and viral phylogeneticists that indicate that this is very, very likely a jumping species from an animal host, perhaps through an intermediate host, into a human species which then spread throughout the human population certainly, almost certainly originating in China in Wuhan.”

Evidence is clear: Children do not need to be inoculated for ‘covid’ | added June 17
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) vaccine advisory committee met this week to discuss requests to amend the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech covid-19 mRNA vaccines.
Moderna asked for its EUA to include the administration of a primary series of the vaccine to infants, children and adolescents ages 6 months through 17 years. Pfizer-BioNTech asked that its EUA include the administration of a primary series to infants and children 6 months old through age 4. Vaccinations and/or boosters in these age groups are unnecessary.
However, based on the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee’s (VRBPAC) extended history of ignoring fundamental aspects of immunology, drug safety and epidemiology — occurring as recently as last week with its approval of the Novavax covid-19 vaccine — it was always a foregone conclusion that the committee would approve these proposals despite the significant risk to children and noteworthy lack of effectiveness.
White House declines to answer questions on POTUS ‘covid’ testing and results | added June 17
In an abrupt change of course, the White House is now declining to comment on the frequency of President Joe Biden’s covid-19 testing regimen, even as it maintains that it would inform the public if he were to ever test positive for the coronavirus.
Since Inauguration Day, the White House had frequently answered questions from reporters about when Biden, 79, last tested negative for the virus. Now, the White House says its policy is not to answer those questions.
“I’m telling you he has a regular cadence,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Thursday, refusing to say what day he last tested negative. “I just don’t have a date to share with you, but he does have a regular weekly cadence.” Following Jean-Pierre’s comments, deputy press secretary Chris Meagher tweeted Thursday that “Our policy is not to readout every test POTUS has taken.”
North Korea reports the outbreak of a new “epidemic” amid ‘covid’ outbreak | added June 17
SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea reported a new “epidemic” of an intestinal disease on Thursday, an unusual announcement from the secretive country that is already contending with a covid-19 outbreak and severe economic turmoil.
It’s unclear how many people are infected in what the official Korean Central News Agency said was “an acute enteric epidemic” in southwestern Haeju city.
The agency didn’t name the disease, but enteric refers to intestinal illnesses, such as typhoid, dysentery and cholera, which are caused by germs in contaminated food or water or contact with the feces of infected people. Such diseases routinely occur in North Korea, where there is a shortage of water treatment facilities and the public health system has been largely broken for decades.
CDC issues strange sex tips for avoiding monkeypox spread | added June 17
Americans who think they might have been exposed to monkeypox should take precautions like masturbating 6 feet apart from their partner to prevent the spread of the virus, according to health officials.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention earlier this month issued a list of safe activities for sexually active patients to engage in. Among the recommendations, are avoiding kissing and “having sex with your clothes on or covering areas where rash or sores are present.”
Patients and prospective patients are also advised to “wash your hands, fetish gear, sex toys and any fabrics” after having sex and “masturbate together at a distance of at least 6 feet, without touching each other and without touching any rash or sores.”
Is the WHO really changing the ‘monkeypox’ name due to discrimination? | added June 17
Yesterday Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), announced the WHO was officially changing the name of the monkeypox virus.
This decision was allegedly taken due to “stigmatization” and “discrimination” of the current “inaccurate” name. I’m not sure how “monkeypox virus” can be an inaccurate name for a virus allegedly found in monkeys that allegedly causes pox, but that is the contention of the “experts” who called for an “urgent name change” in this report from last week.
In the context of the current global outbreak, continued reference to, and nomenclature of this virus being African is not only inaccurate but is also discriminatory and stigmatising
Quadruple-vaxed Anthony Fauci tests ‘covid’ positive for the first time | added June 16

Fauci, who is fully vaccinated and twice boosted against covid, is experiencing mild symptoms, according to a statement Wednesday from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which he leads.
“Dr. Fauci will isolate and continue to work from home,” the statement said. “He has not recently been in close contact with President [Joe] Biden or other senior government officials.” In addition to being director of NIAID, which is a division of the National Institutes of Health, the 81-year-old Fauci also is Biden’s chief medical advisor.
Covid infections are surging in the U.S. again, driven by the highly contagious omicron variant, after dipping below 30,000 a day in March and April, according to a CNBC analysis of data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. The average number of new infections a day has held steady over 100,000 since the end of May, according to the data.
Two NYC judges step down from vax mandate lawsuit over investment ties to big pharma, third judge stays on | added June 16
A judge assigned to hear two consolidated lawsuits challenging covid-19 vaccine mandates in New York City today said she would not step down from the case as requested by the plaintiffs.
Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald denied the plaintiffs’ motion to disqualify her from the case. Plaintiffs filed the motion Tuesday after financial disclosures revealed the judge owned $250,000 in Pfizer stock and $100,000 in Johnson & Johnson.
In her denial, Judge Buchwald said the plaintiffs’ motion was based on “outdated information.” Although plaintiffs do not have access to current financial disclosures, Sujata Gibson, attorney for the plaintiffs, told The Defender said she is “hopeful” Judge Buchwald’s ruling means that any financial interest in the case “has been resolved and that any future potential conflicts by any presiding judges on the case are promptly disclosed going forward.”
All FDA vax advisers vote to expand “emergency use authorization” of Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech shots for 6 month olds | added June 16
Vaccine advisers to the US Food and Drug Administration voted unanimously on Wednesday in favor of expanding the emergency use authorizations for the Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech covid-19 vaccines to include children as young as 6 months.
All 21 members of the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee voted “yes” in response to the question: “Based on the totality of scientific evidence available, do the benefits of the Moderna covid-19 vaccine when administered as a 2-dose series (25 micrograms each dose) outweigh its risks for use in infants and children 6 months through 5 years of age?”
And all the committee members voted yes in response to the question: “Based on the totality of scientific evidence available, do the benefits of the Pfizer-BioNTech covid-19 vaccine when administered as a 3-dose series (3 micrograms each dose) outweigh its risks for use in infants and children 6 months through 4 years of age?”
‘Covid’ reinfections due to variants become “the new normal” | added June 16
In 2020, covid reinfections were considered rare.
In 2021, breakthrough infections in vaccinated individuals could occur, but again, the risk was low.
In 2022, that’s no longer the case for either. As more immune-dodging coronavirus variants emerge, reinfections and breakthrough infections appear increasingly normal.
The United States isn’t currently tracking covid reinfections. However, U.K. researchers have found that the risk of reinfection was eight times higher during the omicron wave than it was in last year’s delta wave.
“I would not be surprised if we see people get infected more than once per year,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, said in an interview with NBC News last week, though he added that he feels optimistic that it will eventually settle into becoming just a seasonal occurrence, like the flu. (Fauci, who has received two vaccine boosters, himself tested positive for covid on Wednesday, saying he has mild symptoms.)
Boosted U.S. Health Secretary Xavier Becerra tests ‘covid’ positive again | added June 16
President Joe Biden’s top health official has again tested positive for covid-19, less than a month after he came down with virus symptoms while on a trip to Germany. U.S. Health Secretary Xavier Becerra woke up with symptoms again Monday morning and tested positive afterward, spokeswoman Sarah Lovenheim said.
His symptoms are mild and he is isolating in Sacramento, California. Lovenheim said Becerra had been in California for a “personal commitment.” A statement from HHS said the secretary was not believed to be a close contact of Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris, who also tested positive earlier this spring.
Becerra is continuing to work from isolation. Becerra had joined Biden at the Summit of the Americas last week in Los Angeles. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Monday that he had tested positive after attending the event, which gathered dignitaries, diplomats and business leaders from across the hemisphere.
WHO researches ‘monkeypox’ found in semen | added June 16
This comes as scientists have reportedly detected the viral DNA in the semen of a handful of monkeypox patients in Italy and Germany, including a lab-tested sample.
This suggested the virus found in the semen of a single patient was capable of infecting another person and replicating. However, the WHO has reiterated that the virus is mainly transmitted via close interpersonal contact. Many of the monkeypox cases confirmed in the current outbreak largely centred in Europe are among sexual partners who have had such close contact.
According to Catherine Smallwood, monkeypox incident manager at WHO/Europe, it is not known whether recent reports mean that the monkeypox virus can be sexually transmitted.
Canada to drop some ‘covid’ vax mandates for travelers, while cruise ships still require proof of inoculation | added June 16
The Canadian government is dropping the requirement that domestic and outbound international travellers be fully vaccinated against covid-19, effective June 20. However, all re-entry requirements will remain in effect, and all passengers will continue to have to wear face masks.
This change will allow unvaccinated Canadians to board planes and trains heading to either domestic or international locations, but they will still be required to follow the current testing and quarantine requirements upon re-entry from international destinations.
Foreign nationals coming to Canada will still be required to be vaccinated in order to enter, though they would be able to depart the country if unvaccinated. Further, “due to the unique nature of cruise ship travel,” the vaccination requirements for passengers and crew of cruise ships will remain in effect.
Senior Biden advisor says social media should censor anyone critical of ‘green energy transition’ | added June 16
One of Joe Biden’s senior advisors told a reporter this week that social media companies should be cracking down on and censoring anyone who speeds information critical of the administration’s so called ‘green energy transition’.
National climate advisor Gina McCarthy made the comments in an interview with a reporter for Axios, stating “Now it’s not so much denying the problem. What the [fossil fuel] industry is now doing is seeding doubt about the costs associated with [green energy] and whether they work or not.”
She continued, “We need the tech companies to really jump in,” on “disinformation,” noting that criticising a green energy transition upheaval is “equally dangerous to denial,” and adding “we have to move fast.” The Axios interviewer just nodded in agreement without any pushback.
BlackRock sells U.S. interests to China as ‘personal favors’, according to consumer group director | added June 16
BlackRock, the world’s largest investment manager that oversees $10 trillion in client funds, has positioned itself as a socially conscious firm. However, the company is choosing China over the United States as it advances its environmental and social priorities, according to Will Hild, executive director of Washington-based nonprofit Consumers’ Research.
Hild said BlackRock CEO Larry Fink is “selling out the interests of American consumers and American companies in the United States, in return for personal favors for BlackRock in mainland China,” during a recent interview with EpochTV’s “China Insider.”
Fink has been one of the most prominent advocates for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investment, which is investing in companies that agree to uphold certain environmental, social, and governance standards. However, according to Hild, ESG “is an excuse for Wall Street to push politics into corporate America.” In other words, Wall Street is pushing ESG policies that “could never be achieved at the ballot box.”

Researchers claim a new blood test could measure immune response to ‘covid’ | added June 15
A newly developed blood test that measures a specific immune response in the body could help doctors gauge how much protection a person has against covid-19, according to a new study.
The test, which focuses on the part of the immune system that confers long-term protection by prompting the body to “remember” the virus, could help make sense of the complex tangle of covid immunity that now exists from person to person.
The test can, for instance, measure immunity regardless of whether someone has developed a level of protection from one or more natural infections or from vaccinations and booster shots. Others, who may have much lower levels of protection because they are immunocompromised, could also use the test to assess their vulnerability and see how they responded to the vaccines, said Ernesto Guccione, an associate professor of oncological sciences and pharmacological sciences at the Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai.
Spring surge of ‘covid’ cases is leveling off in the U.S. even as ‘subvariants’ rapidly spread | added June 15
After a rise in known infections this spring, new coronavirus cases in the United States have leveled off in recent weeks, even as hospitalizations continue to inch upward and new omicron subvariants rapidly circulate.
The country is recording just over 105,000 new coronavirus cases a day, on average, a rate that has more or less held steady over the last month, according to a New York Times database.
That figure is sure to be an undercount, as more people have turned to at-home testing, the results of which often go unreported. But other indicators are also showing signs of steadying: The number of patients hospitalized with the virus, is still growing, but doing so slowly, with the average hovering for most of this week around 29,000. Deaths have stayed below 400 a day for several weeks.
CEOs and shareholders paid record breaking profits while employees barely scrape by | added June 15
As ordinary workers across the United States watched inflation eat away at modest wage gains in 2021, many corporations — including firms contracting with the federal government — used record-shattering profits to lavish their CEOs with bigger pay packages and reward shareholders with billions of dollars in stock buybacks.
According to an analysis published on June 7, by the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), the average gap between CEO and median worker pay at a sample of 300 low-wage U.S. corporations surged in 2021, rising to 670 to 1 — up from 604 to 1 in 2020.
Forty-nine of the publicly traded companies examined in the IPS study, titled “Executive Excess,” had CEO-to-worker-pay ratios above 1,000 to 1 last year. Amazon, for instance, paid CEO Andy Jassy a staggering 6,474 times more than it paid its median worker in 2021, a year in which the e-commerce giant spent $4.3 million on anti-union consultants.
Woman shares mental health side effects from long-term ‘covid’ | added June 15
PORTLAND, Ore. — A woman who caught covid-19 two years ago is raising awareness for the long-term health concerns of the virus. When we think of coronavirus, we usually think of the physical symptoms like coughing and fever.
What Amy Weishan wants people to know is your mental health can be severely affected as well. “Covid is a virus. Yes, that’s true. But there’s a mental component here too, and I think we would be remiss to pretend like that’s not happening,” Weishan said.
Weishan said even her personality changed. She wants to tell others who are going through the same thing that they do not have to suffer in silence. “A lot of things that brought me joy, fell to the wayside of my life out of necessity,” said Weishan. “Sometimes there are wins, sometimes I’m at home crying and feeling like a failure. I have to accept those moments and let my body do what it needs to do to process them.”
New study links hepatitis in children to previous ‘covid’ infections | added June 15
A new study points to prior covid-19 infection as a possible culprit for the global wave of severe hepatitis cases among children — though experts caution the true cause is still a medical mystery.
Researchers in Israel added evidence for the theory in a small study published in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, suggesting some children might develop liver inflammation in the weeks after recovering from a mild covid-19 infection.
While the root cause of the pediatric hepatitis outbreak is still unknown, experts say the leading theories include covid-19 infection, infection with a common cold virus, or an interplay between the two infections, according to Dr. Alok Patel, a pediatric hospitalist at Stanford Health and an ABC News medical contributor.
Fully boosted Rep. Maxine Waters tests positive for ‘covid’ | added June 15
Rep. Maxine Waters is the latest politician to test positive for coronavirus days after the Summit of the Americas conference last week.
One day after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced he tested positive for covid-19, Waters, 83, said in a statement that she tested positive for the virus for a second time. “Yesterday, after learning of a potential exposure at the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles, I was notified that I tested positive for covid,” Waters said, adding that she’s “currently isolating” and is not experiencing symptoms.
“I am following all protocols as recommended by the Office of the Attending Physician and CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidance,” she added. “I am grateful to be fully vaccinated and to have received two booster shots. If you haven’t received the vaccine and/or booster, I encourage you to do so. I am feeling fine and resting at home.”
Chinese children diagnosed with diabetes after ‘covid’ injections | added June 15
Tears would well up in the 5-year-old kindergartner’s eyes whenever he saw other children snacking—a luxury to the boy ever since he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in late January. The diagnosis came 1 1/2 months after he got his second dose of a Chinese covid-19 vaccine.
Puncture marks are filling up every finger of both of the boy’s hands due to the constant finger pricking needed to monitor his blood sugar level, according to his father. He gets four doses of insulin every day, and every meal is weighed and measured for carbs.
The boy belongs to a group of between 600 and 1,000 Chinese children diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes between last October and May, according to an open letter signed by parents in this cohort. Beijing ushered a nationwide campaign in late October to inoculate children aged 3 to 11—the age group covering most of the diabetic patients.
WHO to give ‘monkeypox’ a new name to avoid discriminatory nomenclature | added June 15
The World Health Organization says it is working with experts to come up with a new name for monkeypox. It comes after more than 30 scientists wrote last week about the “urgent need for a non-discriminatory and non-stigmatising” name for the virus and the disease it causes.
Continued reference to the virus as African is both inaccurate and discriminatory, they said. Some 1,600 cases of the disease have been recorded globally in recent weeks. While 72 deaths have been reported in countries where monkeypox was already endemic, none have been seen in the newly affected 32 countries, such as the UK.
At the latest count, as of 12 June, there were 452 confirmed cases in England, 12 in Scotland, 2 in Northern Ireland and 4 in Wales. The World Health Organization says it will hold an emergency meeting next week to determine whether to classify the outbreak as a public health emergency of international concern – the highest alarm the UN agency can sound.
China on the defense over WHO probe into ‘covid’ lab leak theory | added June 15
China is fuming after a Thursday report by the World Health Organization concluded that while covid-19 is likely from animals, further study is required to explain how it jumped to humans – including the possibility of a lab-leak.
An expert panel convened by the WHO’s scientific advisory group recommended “further investigations” into the lab-leak theory, and noted that there “has not been any new data made available” to come to any conclusions.
The recommendation is a sharp departure from the agency’s initial report, which ruled that a lab origin was “extremely unlikely.” “All hypotheses must remain on the table until we have evidence that enables us to rule certain hypotheses in or out,” said WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus at a June 9 press conference. “This make[s] it all the more urgent that this scientific work be kept separate from politics.”

Pouring poison, planting seeds of dependency | added June 14
Do you remember the iconic Union Carbide image from the 1950s or early 1960s? The one with the giant hand coming from the sky, pouring pesticides onto Indian soil.
The blurb below the image includes the following:
Science helps build a new India – India has developed bold new plans to build its economy and bring the promise of a bright future to its more than 400 million people. But India needs the technical knowledge of the western world. For example working with Indian engineers and technicians, Union Carbide recently made available its fast scientific resource to help build a chemicals and plastics plant near Bombay. Throughout the free world, Union Carbide has been actively engaged in building plants for the manufacture of chemicals, plastics, carbons, gases and metals.”
FDA says Moderna’s ‘covid’ shot is safe in children ages 6 months through 17 years | added June 14
Moderna’s covid-19 vaccine is safe and generated an immune response in children ages 6 months through 17 years that’s comparable to the response in adults, according to documents posted by the US Food and Drug Administration ahead of key meetings of its independent vaccine advisory group.
The FDA’s vaccine advisers will evaluate next week Moderna’s covid-19 vaccines for children 6 months through 5 years and 6 years through 17 years should be granted emergency use authorization.
Children under 5 years old — about 18 million people — are the only US age group that still isn’t eligible to receive a covid-19 vaccine. Moderna’s vaccine is currently available only to people 18 and older. Pfizer’s covid-19 vaccine is already authorized for children age 5 and older; FDA’s advisers will also evaluate its vaccine for younger children next week.
Chinese city mayor apologizes for “unsatisfactory” ‘covid’ lockdowns | added June 14
BEIJING — The mayor of a northeastern Chinese city on the North Korean border that has been under lockdown for more than 50 days has apologized for failures in his administration’s work amid widespread — but often disguised — dissatisfaction over the government’s heavy-handed approach to handling the pandemic.
Dandong Mayor Hao Jianjun gave no specifics, but said government work and basic services had been “unsatisfactory,” for which he offered his apologies, according to a statement issued by the city government late Monday.
It is highly unusual for a ranking Communist Party official to publicly concede errors, particularly regarding the hardline “zero-covid” policy that has been repeatedly endorsed by top officials under President and party leader Xi Jinping.

Major tech applications found spying on children without parental consent | added June 14
A new study showing tech companies are collecting data from Apple and Google apps — mostly used by children without parental consent — and sending it to advertisers has experts calling for laws that would make app developers responsible for determining if children are using their products.
“Apps are spying on our kids at a scale that should shock you,” according to The Washington Post, which reported on the study. “More than two-thirds of the 1,000 most popular iPhone apps likely to be used by children collect and send their personal information out to the advertising industry.”
The study, by Pixalate, a company that focuses on fraud protection and privacy, found 79% of Android apps do the same. Researchers found popular apps like Angry Birds 2 and Candy Crush Saga spy on kids who use their apps — as do apps used for coloring and math homework.

EU signs Bavarian Nordic deal for roughly 110,000 doses of ‘monkeypox’ shots | added June 14
BRUSSELS – The European Union signed on Tuesday an agreement with Bavarian Nordic (BAVA.CO) for the supply of about 110,000 doses of vaccines against monkeypox, the EU Commission and the company said.
The vaccines will be bought with EU funds and delivered to EU states, EU health commissioner Stella Kyriakides said. Doses are to be delivered in proportion to the population, starting with states with the most urgent needs.
Deliveries will start immediately and will be completed in the coming months, the company said. It raised its outlook for this year’s financial results after the deal with the EU and other smaller deals for the supply of its vaccine.
Justin Trudeau tests ‘covid’ positive for a second time this year, glorifies and recommends vaccination | added June 14
Justin Trudeau has tested positive for covid-19 for the second time this year. Trudeau, 50, revealed his diagnosis on Twitter on Monday, just days after meeting with President Joe Biden, telling his followers that he “feels okay” despite the diagnosis – something he attributes to receiving his vaccinations.
“I’ve tested positive for covid-19. I’ll be following public health guidelines and isolating,” he tweeted. “I feel okay, but that’s because I got my shots. So, if you haven’t, get vaccinated – and if you can, get boosted. Let’s protect our healthcare system, each other, and ourselves,” he added.
Trudeau previously contracted the illness in January along with two of his children, according to CNN. The outlet also reports that Biden, 79, met with Trudeau at the Summit of the Americas on Thursday in Los Angeles, and neither party wore masks and were in “close proximity” to each other; however, a White House spokesperson told CNN and NBC News the president was not considered to have been in “close contact” with Trudeau.
Sir Mick Jagger tests positive for ‘covid’, cancels show | added June 14
Sir Mick Jagger has tested positive for covid-19, prompting The Rolling Stones to cancel a performance in Amsterdam. The band said the show at the Johan Cruijff Arena would be rescheduled and that they were “deeply sorry”.
Sir Mick, 78, added in a message to fans: “Thank you for your patience and understanding.” The band are currently on their Sixty tour, where they had planned to play 14 shows in 10 European countries.
Tickets for the original show will be honoured for the new date once the show is rescheduled. The Stones had already played three of their tour dates, including one at Anfield in Liverpool. A statement on behalf of the band said: “The Rolling Stones have been forced to call off tonight’s concert in Amsterdam at the Johan Cruijff Arena, following Mick Jagger testing positive after experiencing symptoms of covid upon arrival at the stadium.

More evidence ‘covid’ was created in a lab | added June 13
The late French Nobel prize-winning scientist Professor Luc Montagnier spoke out early in the pandemic about this, asserting in April 2020 that the virus had been designed by molecular biologists and that its characteristics could not have arisen naturally. Labeling the virus as “a professional job…a very meticulous job,” Montagnier described its genome as being a “clockwork of sequences.”
A team of Australian scientists led by Professor Nikolai Petrovsky from the College of Medicine and Public Health at Flinders University has similarly suggested the coronavirus was designed in a laboratory. Examining its ability to bind to a specific enzyme (ACE2) that enables it to infect cells, they found the virus binds far more effectively to the human version of this enzyme than to that of other animals.
‘Covid’ mRNA vax spike proteins remain in body and may affect human DNA | added June 13
A Stanford University study found that spike proteins were still present in the body 60 days after vaccination. On the other hand, some studies have found that covid-19 vaccines and spike proteins may affect human DNA. So how can we reduce spike protein damage and repair our DNA?
The impact of covid-19 mRNA vaccine spike proteins on human health has been a topic of growing interest recently. Pfizer’s pharmacokinetic study submitted to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed that in vaccinated animals, the vaccine’s spike proteins were widely distributed in organs other than the injection site, including the spleen, liver, bone marrow, adrenal glands, and lymph.
This experiment cannot be conducted in humans due to the harmful nature of isotope labeling, but it can be used as a reference. There are many other studies that show the vaccine spike proteins’ presence in multiple organs of the body. Then, how long do the vaccine components remain in the human body?
Prion disease connected to ‘covid’ inoculations | added June 13
Editor’s Note: The Epoch Times just published an article as well on the association of ‘covid’ jabs inducing other diseases. NIH Health Library of Medicine also published a case report of encephalitis associated with ‘covid’. — mmd
Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, a spongiform encephalopathy caused by prions, is characterized by a severe neurological destruction, which has an extremely high mortality. In this publication, we presented a patient who was admitted to the Pamukkale University Anesthesiology Intensive Care Units with the neurological findings that developed after the covid-19 vaccine (CoronaVac, Sinovac Life Sciences, Beijing, China). The patient died due to the progressive neurological disorders.
In cases where rapidly progressive neurological disorders are observed, Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease should be considered and the role of immunity-related conditions in the progression of the disease should be investigated
FDA claims Pfizer ‘covid’ shot for children appears effective | added June 13
The Food and Drug Administration said on Sunday that three doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine appeared to be effective in preventing covid illness in children under 5, judging by the level of virus-blocking antibodies the shots induced.
The agency’s evaluation was posted online ahead of Wednesday’s meeting of outside vaccine experts, summoned to recommend how the F.D.A. should rule on applications from both Pfizer and Moderna on vaccinating the nation’s youngest children.
Some public health experts are expecting the F.D.A. to authorize both Moderna’s and Pfizer’s vaccines, offering parents a choice between the two. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention must also weigh in with its recommendations after the F.D.A. acts. Roughly 18 million children younger than 5 are the only Americans who are not yet eligible for shots.
Sweaty gym members may be “super spreading” ‘covid’ aerosol particles | added June 13
That gym member panting next to you in spin class may be exhaling a huge amount of aerosol particles — the kind that can transmit viruses, including the one that causes covid-19 — leading to a “super emission” during intense exercise, a new study has found.
A person’s aerosol particle emission increased 132-fold on average when he or she worked out at the highest intensity — skyrocketing from about 580 particles per minute at rest to about 76,000 during maximum exertion.
That startling rise might partly explain “superspreader events” during high-intensity group exercise indoors, the authors wrote in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Chinese authorities link Beijing bar to ‘covid’, mandatory testing for millions | added June 13
Authorities in China’s capital Beijing on Monday raced to contain a covid-19 outbreak traced to a 24-hour bar known for cheap liquor and big crowds, with millions facing mandatory testing and thousands under targeted lockdowns.
The outbreak of 228 cases linked to the Heaven Supermarket Bar, which had just reopened as curbs in Beijing eased last week, highlights how hard it will be for China to make a success of its “zero-covid” policy as much of the rest of the world opts to learn how to live with the virus.
The re-emergence of infections is also raising new concerns about the outlook for the world’s second-largest economy. China is only just shaking off a heavy blow from a two-month lockdown of Shanghai, its most populous city and commercial nerve centre, that also roiled global supply chains.
The origins of Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum with Johnny Vedmore | added June 13
This story is a conversation with Johnny Vedmore, whom you might know from his article “Schwab Family Values.”
I was a great pleasure to talk to Johnny, or rather listen to Johnny, since we were pressed for time, and I wanted to make sure to get as many of his insights as possible.
In the interview, Johnny talks about Klaus Schwab’s Nazi collaborator father, Klaus’ curious time at Harvard, and the alphabet agency origins on the WEF—which, according to Johnny, is not an ambitious European project per se but very much a shady alphabet initiative from the get-go—which I don’t find particularly surprising or shocking. It seems like even while competing with each other, people with predatory inclinations and a love of dominating others still have a lot more in common with each other than with their underlying peasants.
Scientists push to change “monkeypox” name, saying nomenclature is discriminatory against Africa | added June 13
A group of scientists from Africa and elsewhere are urging the scientific community and world health leaders to drop the stigmatizing language used to differentiate monkeypox viruses, and are even advocating renaming the virus itself.
In a position paper published online on Friday, the group proposed abandoning the existing names for monkeypox virus clades — West Africa and Congo Basin — and replacing them with numbers, saying the current names are discriminatory.
“In the context of the current global outbreak, continued reference to, and nomenclature of this virus being African is not only inaccurate but is also discriminatory and stigmatizing,” the more than two dozen scientists wrote.
New documentary exposes WHO population control experiment on African women | added June 13
From award-winning filmmaker Dr. Andy Wakefield, in collaboration with executive producer Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., chairman of Children’s Health Defense (CHD), and CHD Films, comes the documentary “Infertility: A Diabolical Agenda.”
The film exposes a World Health Organization (WHO) population control experiment carried out under the guise of a vaccination program, that resulted in the sterilization of women in Africa without their knowledge or consent.
The film premieres tomorrow, Friday, June 10 at 2 p.m. ET on CHD.TV. Immediately following the 30-minute film, a special edition of CHD.TV’s “Friday Roundtable” will feature Wakefield, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Jim Thorp, Brian Hooker, Ph.D. and Dr. Liz Mumper to discuss the dramatic rise in infertility issues across the globe.

Justin Bieber suffers face paralysis due to “pretty serious virus”, cancels Toronto and D.C. shows | added June 11
Justin Bieber took to Instagram on Friday to explain the “pretty serious virus” that has paralyzed half of his face and caused the cancelation of shows in Toronto and D.C. earlier this week. In a two-and-a-half-minute post, he explained and demonstrated that he is suffering from Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a rare virus that affects nerves in the face and can cause facial paralysis.
As if to prove that he is genuinely ill, he shows quite clearly in the video: “As you can see, this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile on this side of my face. This nostril will not move. So there’s full paralysis on the side of my face.
“So for those who are frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I’m just physically, obviously not capable of doing them. This is pretty serious. As you can see.”

I’ll be joined by statistician Christine Massey of the Toronto area, who has led the way by coordinating a worldwide effort to ask governments if they have a sample of the virus, or a paper saying who does. None do — not a one. No institution in the world can provide evidence of a sample. I have gone up and down every street on this issue.
If you’re thinking “there must be something wrong here,” you’re correct, but it’s probably not what you think. It’s why experts have to say things like, “A virus is a process, not a thing.”
U.S. to drop mandatory ‘covid’ testing requirements for inbound travelers | added June 11
The Biden administration will drop the covid-19 testing requirement for inbound air travelers from abroad on Sunday, ending one of the longest-running travel restrictions of the pandemic.
The rule, put in place by the Trump administration in early 2021 and later tightened by the Biden administration, most recently required inbound travelers, including U.S. citizens, to show proof of a negative Covid test a day before boarding U.S.-bound flights. Travelers entering the U.S. at land border crossings were exempt.
The change takes effect at 12:01 a.m. ET on Sunday. Airlines and others in the travel industry had repeatedly pushed the administration to drop the requirement, arguing it was hurting demand for international trips. The travel industry has been one of the hardest hit by the pandemic.
Updated: The surprising cause of melanoma – it’s not from the sun | added June 11
Rates of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, have been rising for at least the last three decades, and this increase has been largely blamed on exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun.
However, research published in the British Journal of Dermatology shows that the sun is likely nothing more than a scapegoat in the development of melanoma, and the sharp increase may actually be “an artifact caused by diagnostic drift.”
Melanoma Increases Due to Benign Disease, Not Sunlight Diagnostic drift, according to the study, refers to a hefty increase in disease that is being fueled by non-cancerous lesions. In fact, during the study period from 1991 to 2004, there were nearly 4,000 cases of melanoma included in the report, with an annual increase of 9.39 to 13.91 cases per 100,000.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released new data showing a total of 1,295,329 reports of adverse events following covid-19 vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and June 3, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). That’s an increase of 7,734 adverse events over the previous week.
VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S. The data included a total of 28,714 reports of deaths — an increase of 182 over the previous week — and 236,767 serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 1,726 compared with the previous week.
Of the 28,714 reported deaths, 18,638 cases are attributed to Pfizer’s covid-19 vaccine, 7,524 cases to Moderna and 2,483 cases to Johnson & Johnson (J&J). Excluding “foreign reports” to VAERS, 829,329 adverse events, including 13,225 deaths and 83,801 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and June 3, 2022.
‘Covid’ wastewater levels decrease in Albany, according to recent screenings | added June 11
ALBANY — The drop in covid-19 cases is showing up on wastewater screenings, with virus intensity dropping between 10 and 13 percent over two weeks in most Capital Region counties, according to the most recent data from the state’s wastewater surveillance program.
In Albany County, the covid-19 intensity level plunged by 25 percent in 14 days, County Executive Dan McCoy noted in his biweekly update Friday.
“While this virus is clearly still a threat – especially for those with weakened immune systems and underlying health conditions – our metrics continue to move in the right direction,” McCoy said. The state’s wastewater surveillance system can be an early indicator of the virus’ trajectory, but the data quality is dependent on the frequency of sampling and the size of the sewage processing plant where water is tested, according to public health experts.
U.S. buys 300,000 ‘monkeypox’ vaccines to prevent the spread of outbreaks | added June 11
The U.S. government said Friday it has purchased an additional 300,000 monkeypox vaccines produced by Bavarian Nordic, adding to its current stock of around 72,000 doses, AP reports.
Why it matters: The U.S. has started shipping vaccines to multiple states to prevent the spread of the virus, which is endemic in parts of Africa but has recently started appearing in localized outbreaks in several European countries and several states in the U.S.
Bavarian Nordic produces the two-dose Jynneos vaccine, which has been approved to help prevent smallpox and monkeypox in the U.S. What they’re saying: Dawn O’Connell, an official with the Department of Health and Human Services, told reporters Friday that the U.S. will begin to receive the 300,000 vaccines over the next several weeks and that the country has ordered 500,0000 vaccines in total.
Mysterious highly active, repeating fast radio burst found by astronomers | added June 11
Astronomers have found only the second example of a highly active, repeating fast radio burst (FRB) with a compact source of weaker but persistent radio emission between bursts.
The discovery raises new questions about the nature of these mysterious objects and also about their usefulness as tools for studying the nature of intergalactic space. The scientists used the National Science Foundation’s Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) and other telescopes to study the object, first discovered in 2019.
The object, called FRB 190520, was found by the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST) in China. A burst from the object occurred on May 20, 2019, and was found in data from that telescope in November of that year. Follow-up observations with FAST showed that, unlike many other FRBs, it emits frequent, repeating bursts of radio waves.
Moscow’s ‘sanitary shield’ normalizes useless PCR tests and “vaccines” | added June 11
In April 2021, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced ambitious plans to keep the country safe from future coronavirus-like plagues.
“In the event of an infection as dangerous as the coronavirus or perhaps more, God forbid, Russia must be ready within four days—precisely within four days—to develop its own test systems, and in the shortest possible time to create an effective domestic vaccine, to start its mass production,” Putin said during a speech to the Federation Council, Russia’s upper house of parliament.
The rapid development of tests and vaccines would be part of a “powerful and reliable shield in the field of sanitary and biological safety” that should be functional in the next three years and fully operational by 2030, the Russian leader told lawmakers.

NYC to end mask mandate for two to four year olds on Monday | added June 10
Mayor Eric Adams of New York City will end the mask mandate for 2- to 4-year-old children who attend day care and preschool on Monday, he said Thursday, because the city is past the peak of its latest wave of coronavirus cases.
“I have always said that the science will guide us out of the pandemic, and because we have followed the data, which shows that cases are steadily falling, we’ve beaten back the latest covid-19 surge,” said Mayor Adams in a statement.
The city is still strongly recommending that masks be worn indoors for people of all ages, however, as new, confirmed cases still remain at a high level despite recent declines. The city’s alert level is also still orange, or high, but Mayor Adams has repeatedly said he will remove or implement mandates as he and his advisers see fit, rather than wait for his alert system to trigger actions.
WHO will probe deeper into ‘covid’ lab leak theory with “new evidence” | added June 10
Geneva — Over two years after the coronavirus was first detected in China, and after at least 6.3 million deaths have been counted worldwide from the pandemic, the World Health Organization is recommending in its strongest terms yet that a deeper probe is required into whether a lab accident may be to blame.
That stance marks a sharp reversal of the U.N. health agency’s initial assessment of the pandemic’s origins and comes after many critics accused the WHO of being too quick to dismiss or underplay a lab-leak theory that put Chinese officials on the defensive.
WHO concluded last year that it was “extremely unlikely” covid-19 might have spilled into humans in the city of Wuhan from a lab. Many scientists suspect the coronavirus jumped into people from bats, possibly via another animal.
Steroids and blood plasma given to ‘covid’ patients who lost sense of smell | added June 10
Researchers are finally making headway in understanding how the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus causes loss of smell. And a multitude of potential treatments to tackle the condition are undergoing clinical trials, including steroids and blood plasma.
Once a tell-tale sign of covid-19, smell disruption is becoming less common as the virus evolves. “Our inboxes are not as flooded as they used to be,” says Valentina Parma, a psychologist at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who helped field desperate inquiries from patients throughout the first two years of the pandemic.
A study published last month surveyed 616,318 people in the United States who have had covid-19. It found that, compared with those who had been infected with the original virus, people who had contracted the alpha variant — the first variant of concern to arise — were 50% as likely to have chemosensory disruption. This probability fell to 44% for the later delta variant, and to 17% for the latest variant, omicron.
Forty year old man among first to receive compensation under Canada’s Vaccine Injury Support Program for ‘covid’ vax | added June 10
A 40-year-old man living in British Columbia, Canada last month learned the Canadian government approved his request for compensation for a covid-19 vaccine injury.
Ross Wightman, a 40-year-old husband and father of two, said it took years of submitting paperwork before the government approved the claim. He is believed to be among the first of only a handful of people to receive compensation under Canada’s Vaccine Injury Support Program (VISP).
Wightman did not divulge the exact amount of the payout. However, he said he did not qualify for the program’s maximum payout of $284,000. While there have been 46,149 officially recorded adverse reactions to covid-19 vaccines in Canada, only a handful of those injured have received any compensation.
Diseases suppressed by ‘covid’ make a sudden comeback in strange ways | added June 10
The covid-19 pandemic has abated in much of the world and, with it, many of the social restrictions implemented to curb its spread, as people have been eager to return to pre-lockdown life.
But in its place have emerged a series of viruses behaving in new and peculiar ways. Take seasonal influenza, more commonly known as the flu. The 2020 and 2021 U.S. winter flu seasons were some of the mildest on record both in terms of deaths and hospitalizations.
Yet cases ticked up in February and climbed further into the spring and summer as covid restrictions were stripped back. “We’ve never seen a flu season in the U.S. extend into June,” Dr. Scott Roberts, associate medical director for infection prevention at Yale New Haven Hospital, told CNBC Tuesday.
Scuba diver adapts new technology to help ‘covid’ patients with long lasting air tanks| added June 10
Martin Stanton said he initially wanted to find ways of making the air in scuba tanks last longer for his dives. When he learned hospitals had a shortage of ventilators during the pandemic, he set about designing a more efficient machine for patients.
His scuba-inspired invention recycles oxygen the patient breathes out and is highly portable. Ventilators were a key piece of equipment at the height of the pandemic. By putting air into patients’ lungs, they provide the body with much-needed oxygen for those who cannot breathe without assistance.
Mr Stanton, 50, from Temple Clouds, runs a diving company and said his machine safely re-uses oxygen the patient breathes out which increases the efficiency of the ventilator. “I started working on that problem – which is why are the clinicians and doctors saying we’ve not got enough oxygen when the masses say we should?”
First U.S. military member tests ‘positive’ for monkeypox abroad in Germany | added June 10
An active-duty member of the US military based in Stuttgart, Germany has been identified as having the military’s first known case of monkeypox, a US European Command spokesperson told CNN in a statement. The service member “recently tested positive for monkeypox,” Captain William Speaks, USN, said in a statement.
“The individual was seen and treated at the Stuttgart Army Health clinic and is currently in isolation recovering in their quarters off-base,” Speaks said.
He continued: “Public health officials have determined that the risk to the overall population is very low. As a precautionary measure, contact tracing is being done for clinic staff who interacted with the patient. The case in Stuttgart is of the West African strain, which is generally mild and human-to-human transmission is limited.”

U.S. orders millions of ‘covid’ shots for children under 5 years-old | added June 9
Millions of covid-19 vaccine doses have been ordered for small children in anticipation of possible federal authorization next week, White House officials say. The government allowed pharmacies and states to start placing orders last week, with 5 million doses initially available — half of them shots made by Pfizer and the other half the vaccine produced by Moderna, senior administration officials said.
As of this week, about 1.45 million of the 2.5 million available doses of Pfizer have been ordered, and about 850,000 of available Moderna shots have been ordered, officials said. More orders are expected in the coming days.
Young children are the last group of Americans who have not been recommended to get covid-19 vaccinations. Up to about 20 million U.S. children under 5 would become eligible for vaccination if the government authorizes one or both shots.
Where’s the emergency? Eighteen congress members demand FDA answers as U.S. orders millions of experimental drug shots for America’s youngest | added June 9
Members of Congress today demanded answers from Dr. Robert M. Califf, commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as the agency reviews Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for covid-19 shots in children age 5 and under.
The FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) is meeting on four separate occasions in June to discuss additional EUAs that would provide cradle-to-grave covid-19 shots — and to consider a “Future Framework” that will permanently lower the bar for safety and efficacy, according to Toby Rogers, Ph.D.
A letter signed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.) and 16 other members of Congress today asked Commissioner Califf 19 questions about the safety of covid-19 vaccines for young children.
The questions focused on the youngest children (6 months to 5 years) due to the Congress members’ concerns about what they called the FDA’s “one-size-fits-all” approach to the vaccines.

White House: Federal ‘covid’ relief funds re-directed from testing to more anti-viral pills and vaccines | added June 9
WASHINGTON — White House officials said on Wednesday that they would have to repurpose federal covid-19 funds meant for coronavirus tests and protective equipment in order to supply more antiviral pills and vaccines, after so far failing to persuade Congress to pass a new pandemic relief package.
Roughly $10 billion from Department of Health and Human Services funds will be rerouted, around half of it to purchase vaccines for Americans ahead of a possible fall or winter wave of virus cases, when an updated shot may be needed, according to one White House official.
The other half will go mostly to purchasing 10 million courses of Paxlovid, the antiviral treatment made by Pfizer that has been shown to substantially reduce the severity of covid-19 in high-risk people, the official said. Around $300 million will be spent on another kind of treatment, monoclonal antibodies.
U.S. has a “very serious problem” with experimental ‘covid’ shot uptake | added June 9
The United States has a “very serious” problem with covid-19 vaccination uptake, a top health official has warned.Vaccines are by far the most powerful tool available against the coronavirus, protecting people from getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, and dying from the virus.
Unlike many less developed countries, the US has enough doses to vaccinate everyone as well as the necessary infrastructure to support the rollout. The problem: not everyone wants the shot.
“We do have a problem with vaccine uptake that is very serious in the United States and anything we can do to get people more comfortable to be able to accept these potentially life-saving medical products is something that we feel we are compelled to do,” said Dr. Peter Marks, director of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research.
Canada acts as fully bio-fascist state with censorship, plans to take people’s guns, and firing wayward doctors | added June 9
Back when I was on the left—or, rather, way back when there was a left throughout the West—Canada was notable for offering asylum to Americans who didn’t want to serve in Vietnam.
That, of course, was only one side of the story. The other side concerned that government’s prior (and more covert) acceptance of a lot of Nazi war criminals, who were brought there in considerable numbers (just as they were quietly brought into the US).
That part of the story is more relevant today, as Canada veers into the same bio-fascist order that also comprises Australia and New Zealand—and China: a disorienting merger of the British commonwealth and CCP, within which (one might call it) New World Order it will be ever harder to discern the difference between Shanghai, Sydney, Wellington and (if this northern trend continues) Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal.

Whilst the average Spaniard did as the government asked, obeyed the rules and went out and got vaccinated, others thought they were above the law, that they were somehow special.
UK’s National Health Services drops word “women” from ovarian cancer resources to be more ‘inclusive’ | added June 9
The UK’s National Health Services (NHS) has scrubbed the word “women” from many of their guidances in order to be “inclusive.” The UK government-funded healthcare and medical agency is the one-stop shop for UK citizens to access their universal health care benefits.
The NHS’s erasure of “women” is from their resources on ovarian, cervical, and womb cancers, all of which only impact women. The NHS overview guidance for ovarian cancer previously read, “Ovarian cancer, or cancer of the ovaries, is one of the most common types of cancer in women.
The ovaries are a pair of small organs located low in the tummy that are connected to the womb and store a woman’s supply of eggs. Ovarian cancer mainly affects women who have been through the menopause (usually over the age of 50), but it can sometimes affect younger women.”
Monkeypox rollout follows the ‘covid’ playbook | added June 9
Monkeypox is back in the headlines as of yesterday, back to work after a short break. It burst onto the front pages, with concomitant BIG RED NUMBERS and daily case updates a couple of weeks ago, and then went quiet. The press pretty much stopped talking about it.
…until they started again.
Yesterday it was reported that the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has “upgraded” monkeypox to a “notifiable disease”, meaning any positive test must be immediately reported to the government agency.
Ever one for subtlety, the Telegraph’s front page reports this as “monkeypox upgraded to same level as leprosy and the plague” Across the pond, the US CDC has made the curiously synchronised decision to increase their travel alert on Monkeypox to level 2, which recommends people “practice enhanced precautions”.

Mass psychogenic illness | added June 8
Editor’s Note: I am in a discussion with Cowan, Kaufman, the Baileys and other luminaries about loss of sense of smell. Here is what I just sent:
Dani said her sense of smell was distorted such that everything smelled like rotten eggs and peanut butter (and still does — she did not get “covid” though). Another person said his girlfriend smelled tobacco everywhere.
Last night I spoke to a guy who was in NYC for the spring of 2020 and he said that everyone around him had loss of smell connected to various other symptoms, such as stabbing abdominal pains. He said most people manifested some different odd or extreme symptom; very few people had the same thing, but that several of his friends had ab pains. None of this involved hospitalization.
These symptoms did not make it 90 miles upstate despite heavy commuter traffic between the city and the Hudson Valley during that era. That would seem to rule out community spread.
NYC as usual was the capitol of the crisis. It was pitched as the American Wuhan. I think we ignore these sincere reports at our peril — if we care about getting to the truth. To me these accounts suggest something like use of 5G or the release of a toxin in New York City. It could have been placed anywhere from Jool vaping pens to “vaccines” to on the subway, done selectively so as to evade notice.
It does not even need to be done in many neighborhoods or locales. In fact one will suffice. The Mass Psychogenic Illness angle is one we do not discuss enough. See DHS admission against interest in that document.
The sense of smell is a critical navigation device here on the physical plane. It is direct-to-brain. — efc
FDA backs Novavax’s experimental ‘covid’ drug shot based on available evidence | added June 8
Vaccine advisers to the US Food and Drug Administration decided Tuesday that authorizing Novavax’s covid-19 vaccine — which uses different technology from the three vaccines currently in use in the US — for emergency use in adults would be beneficial.
Most of the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee voted “yes” in response to a question of whether the benefits of Novavax’s vaccine, given as a two-dose primary series, outweigh its risks in people 18 and older, based on available evidence. Twenty-one members voted yes, one abstained, and none voted no.
If the full FDA gives the vaccine the green light, it will become the fourth covid-19 vaccine authorized in the United States. Novavax’s vaccine is made using small laboratory-built pieces of the coronavirus to stimulate immunity. This protein-based approach is a more traditional one for vaccine development than the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna.

Rhode Island announces it will ‘wind down’ mass vax and testing sites | added June 8
The Rhode Island Department of Health said Tuesday that it is is planning to end state-run covid-19 testing and vaccination at the end of the month.
Beginning July 1, the department said people can contact their health care providers, pharmacies, and community partners for those services.
“The services that the state has been providing for both testing and vaccinations were never meant to be sustainable, long-term solutions,” said Dr. Philip Chan, medical director of the Rhode Island Department of Health.
Moderna markets its new ‘bivalent covid’ jab that targets original strain and omicron | added June 8
A redesigned version of Moderna’s covid-19 booster shot appears to provide stronger protection against the omicron variant than its current vaccine, the company said in a news release Wednesday. Early trial results found the bivalent vaccine — which is designed to target both the omicron variant and the original coronavirus strain in a single shot — led to an eightfold increase in neutralizing antibody levels, according to the company.
The updated vaccine also increased antibody levels against all other known variants of concern, it said. Moderna has called the omicron bivalent vaccine its “lead candidate” for the fall. The new shot, called mRNA-1273.214, was tested in a Phase 2/3 clinical trial of 437 people at 50 micrograms — the same dosage given in the current booster shot.
The new shot was generally well-tolerated, the company said, with side effects similar to those with a booster dose of its existing vaccine. Moderna has only announced the trial results in a news release; the data have not yet been made available to outside scientists for review.
CDC causes mass confusion over ‘airborne monkeypox’, deletes mask recommendations | added June 8
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its guidance last week for travelers wishing to protect themselves against monkeypox. This was one of its recommendations: “Wear a mask. Wearing a mask can help protect you from many diseases, including monkeypox.”
Late Monday night, that recommendation was deleted. “C.D.C. removed the mask recommendation from the monkeypox travel health notice because it caused confusion,” the agency said in a statement on Tuesday.
However, the agency still says that in countries where monkeypox is spreading, “household contacts and health care workers” should consider wearing masks. That guideline also applies to “other people who may be in close contact with a person who has been confirmed with monkeypox.”
New study suggests link between fatal degenerative brain disease and ‘covid’ shots | added June 8
Studies suggest a link between an incurable and fatal prion disease known as Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) and covid-19 vaccines.
Researchers believe the prion region from the original Wuhan covid-19 variant’s spike protein was incorporated into mRNA vaccines and adenovirus vector vaccines — given to hundreds of millions of humans — and that it can cause a new type of rapidly progressing sporadic CJD.
According to Mayo Clinic, CJD is a degenerative brain disorder that leads to dementia and, ultimately, death. Although the omicron variant does not have a prion region on its spike protein, current covid-19 vaccines still use the genetic material — including the prion region — of the parent Wuhan strain.
Highly vaxed Australia faces unusual surge of deaths, according to recent reports | added June 8
Add Australia to the countries seeing an unusual surge in deaths from all causes following mass mRNA shot campaigns. The Australian government reported on May 25 that deaths in Australia were 21 percent above normal in early 2022. Even excluding covid deaths, deaths were more than 10 percent above normal.
Victoria, Australia’s second-most-populated state, offers an even grimmer picture. Unlike the national government, Victoria publishes monthly death figures in near-real time. On Thursday, it reported 4,312 deaths in May, 27 percent above the average of May 2020 and 2021 – the equivalent of 45,000 extra deaths in the United States.
The Australian death spike is particularly striking, because Australia had no excess deaths – and little covid – in 2020 and much of 2021. Thus the usual alternative explanations cannot hold. The spike cannot be the result of delayed medical care or “long covid” (whatever long covid is). Australia’s weather and geography are also very different than the European countries now reporting excess deaths.
Human cancers likely linked to hormone and vax-injected livestock | added June 8
Many people know about the routine use of antibiotics in livestock production—and object to it. The drugs are profitable to meat producers because they cause animals to gain more weight with less feed and prevent the outbreak of disease in often cramped concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFOS) conditions.
In 2017, the Food and Drug Administration began regulatory measures to prevent the use of livestock antibiotics for growth purposes and recently finalized the guidances. Injudicious antibiotic use drives the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
As the extent of antibiotic residues and antibiotic-resistant bacteria in meat has been revealed, there has been a public backlash against the drugs’ use, resulting in some meat producers labeling their products “raised without antibiotics.” The problem consumers are unaware that other drugs are now being used in meat production and left off the labels. Worse, in an effort to reduce the publicly spurned antibiotics, meat producers are turning to vaccines.
CDC raises ‘monkeypox’ alert, urging travelers to wear face masks | added June 7
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has stepped up its monkeypox guidance, urging travelers to take extra precautions including wearing face masks as global cases of the virus surpass 1,000.
The CDC ramped up its alert to a level 2 on Monday, encouraging people to “practice enhanced precautions” to stem the outbreak, which has spread to 29 non-endemic countries in the past month. The highest level alert — level 3 — would caution against non-essential travel.
While the public health body said the risk to the general public remains low, the heightened alert encourages people to avoid close contact with sick people, including those with skin or genital lesions, as well as sick or dead animals.
VAERS 1990-2019 database analysis on the link between vaccines and sudden infant deaths between 1990 | June 7
Editor’s Note: Meanwhile back in 2019 Pharma giants, Sanofi & Merck & Co. received FDA approval for a six in one inoculation, marketed as Vaxelis to be administered to six week old babies. — mmd
In this paper, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database was analyzed to ascertain the onset interval of infant deaths post-vaccination. Of 2605 infant deaths reported to VAERS from 1990 through 2019, 58 % clustered within 3 days post-vaccination and 78.3 % occurred within 7 days post-vaccination, confirming that infant deaths tend to occur in temporal proximity to vaccine administration.
The excess of deaths during these early post-vaccination periods was statistically significant (p < 0.00001). A review of the medical literature substantiates a link between vaccines and sudden unexplained infant deaths.
Physicians warned over-usage of drugs cause liver injury and failure | added June 7
Warnings about liver damage caused by taking too much acetaminophen (Tylenol) have been on over-the-counter packages for years, but other prescription drugs can also lead to severe liver injury no matter the dose or how long the person has taken it.
“Most people with drug-induced liver injury recover fully, but one-quarter of patients will die, need a liver transplant or have lingering liver problems six months after onset,” says Robert Fontana, M.D., liver specialist in the University of Michigan Hepatology Program. Fontana is an investigator in the national Drug-Induced Liver Injury Network (DILIN) that’s tracking troubling trends and looking for biomarkers that may make some of us vulnerable to drug-induced liver damage.
U.S. wasted over 82 million doses of ‘covid’ drug shot since start of pandemic | added June 7
More than 82 million covid-19 vaccine doses have reportedly gone to waste since the beginning of the pandemic, according to media reports.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shared the data with NBC News, meaning that just over 11% of doses the federal government distributed between December 202 through mid-May were discarded.
That’s nearly 20 million more doses wasted than the 65 million The Associated Press reported wasted in February. CVS and Walmart were responsible for the largest amount – over a quarter – of doses thrown away during the 1.5-year time period. Other chains like Rite Aid, Costco and a dialysis center each wasted more than a quarter of the doses they received, the report said.
French medics demand better working conditions and salaries after ‘covid’ induced hospital crisis | added June 7
PARIS — Health workers are protesting Tuesday around France to demand more hiring and better salaries in public hospitals, after years of cost cuts that left medics submerged when the covid-19 pandemic hit and are now forcing emergency rooms to cut services.
Nine unions and collectives organized a day of protest, including a demonstration outside the Health Ministry in Paris and in dozens of other towns and cities, to call the government’s attention to growing concerns about staff shortages.
President Emmanuel Macron has promised a rethink of the public hospital system and commissioned an urgent review by July 1. His government offered slight salary boosts to some hospital workers last year and authorized new equipment, but medics say the problems are deeper.
Fourth ‘suspected monkeypox’ case in Sacramento County results in 30 close contacts getting vaxed | added June 7
A fourth suspected monkeypox case has been identified in Sacramento County and nearly three dozen close contacts for all the cases have received a vaccine, public health officials said on Monday. All of the cases have been linked to the initial case stemming from someone who had recently traveled to Europe.
That case was first reported by a health provider on May 21. “At this time the risk to the general public is low but people still do need to be aware,” Public Health Officer Dr. Olivia Kasirye said in a briefing. The fourth person was identified last week and the results from initial testing came back on Friday.
The case still needs to be confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. All of those with suspected or confirmed monkeypox cases have mild illnesses and are staying at home, Kasirye said. Thirty close contacts have received a monkeypox vaccine, which has to be ordered from the CDC, county officials said.

Digital privacy bill would ban data-driven advertisements targeting children | added June 7
Digital rights advocates on Friday cautiously welcomed the news that congressional lawmakers have agreed to advance a bipartisan, bicameral data privacy bill while reaffirming the need for antitrust legislation to truly tackle Big Tech monopoly abuses.
The bill, entitled the American Data Privacy and Protection Act, would establish a national standard governing internet companies’ collection of user data. The measure would empower users to opt-out of targeted advertising and to sue companies that improperly sell their personal information. It would also ban data-driven advertisements targeting children, among other reforms.

The August 23, 2021 FDA approval of Pfizer’s Comirnaty vaccine was a cause for celebration. Marked as a turning point in the battle against covid19, the announcement was highly publicized by the Biden Administration with the clear intention to extinguish “vaccine hesitancy” and boost uptake.
It was celebrated as a cause for national relief, and many Americans arrived at their local pharmacies under the impression, via government and pharmaceutical propaganda, that they were receiving an FDA-approved covid vaccine. Yet that legally distinct product, as we know it, never existed. And now we know, via Pfizer, that it will never exist.
For the uninitiated: Comirnaty is a legally distinct product from the emergency use authorization (EUA) shots, and It has never made its way to market. For months on end, no such vaccine has ever become available. Those who received the “Pfizer shot(s)” have been injected with the emergency use authorization (EUA) version of the shots
Discussion: The coming food apocalypse with Kit Knightly | added June 7
A major global food shortage is looming. Director-General Qu Donyu of the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) presented Securing Food Security in Times of Crisis at the Meeting of the G7 Ministers of Agriculture.
The FAO’s Food Price Index in March reached 160 points – the highest since its inception in 1990! The report notes that Russia and Ukraine are “important players in global commodity markets” particularly wheat, maize and oilseed. And this uncertainty comes on top of “already high prices driven by robust demand and high input costs as a result of covid-19 recovery.”
A number of countries, including Turkey and Egypt, Sub-Saharan African countries like Eritrea, Somalia, Madagascar, Tanzania, Congo and Namibia, will be highly impacted by the shortfalls in wheat from Ukraine and the Russian Federation. The food crises in Yemen and Ethiopia in particular would likewise suffer a blow.
CDC announces ‘indoor mask recommendation’ in some California counties | added June 6
Editor’s Note: Really? People need to learn about this PCR thingie. — efc
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced on Friday that 13 counties in California, roughly one-quarter of the state, have reached ‘High’ levels of covid-19 and are recommended a return of indoor masking in those counties.
All 13 counties are located in Northern California, including the Counties of Del Norte, El Dorado, Marin, Mendocino, Monterey, Napa, Placer, Sacramento, San Benito, Santa Clara, Solano, Sonoma, and Yolo. According to the CDC, hospital bed capacity, newly admitted covid-19 patients per 100,000 residents, and the total number of new cases per 100,000 in a county are used to rank where a county stands.
Under that metric, in counties with more than 200 new cases per 100,000 residents in the past week, covid patients admission where it is over 10 per 100,000 are officially listed as high. On Friday, those 13 counties went above that 10 threshold, including Sacramento with 12.1 per 100,000, Sonoma and Marin Counties with 11.8, and Solano County with 11.5.
Pfizer to become first U.S. based facility to manufacture oral ‘covid’ drugs | added June 6
PORTAGE, Mich. — Pfizer will make history as the first U.S based manufacturing facility to support the production of the oral covid-19 treatment, Paxlovid.
On Monday, the company will hold a news conference to announce a multi-million dollar investment to expand the Kalamazoo County location to increase their capability to manufacture Paxlovid. The news conference will start at 11 a.m. at the Pfizer location on Portage Road.
Several Michigan elected officials are expected to attend the conference including Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Pfizer said the expansion will create hundreds of high-skilled jobs for the local community. The Kalamazoo County location has been central in the fight against covid-19, manufacturing nearly one billion vaccine doses to date.
NIAID scientist: ‘Covid’ lockdown stunted immunity in children | added June 6
Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel discusses the recent outbreaks of respiratory viruses in children and stresses the ‘enormous’ damage children experienced due to remote learning. Children need to be exposed to ‘germs’ to build their immunity against pathogens. The dangerous amount of socialization damage due to lockdowns on children was an unprecedented mistake.
The 1910 Flexner Report and Rockefeller ‘medicine’: A poisonous illusion? | added June 6
The 1910 Flexner Report laid the foundation of the modern medicine as we know it. Post-covid, the principles of the so called ‘Rockefeller medicine’ were taken to the extreme.
This story is about the famous 1910 Flexner Report that laid the foundations of the modern medical system, dubbed “Rockefeller medicine.” It is also about the fascinating dynamic that exists between the ego, the plight of a “respectable” scammer, and the trajectory of the world.
Who Was Flexner?
Abraham Flexner was born in 1866 in Louisville, Kentucky. He lived until 1959. For several years, he ran a college prep school in his home town of Louisville. In 1908, Flexner published “The American College: A Criticism,” a book criticizing American college education.
Beijing reopens restaurants to majority while thousands remain in lockdown | added June 6
BEIJING — Diners returned to restaurants in most of Beijing for the first time in more than a month Monday as authorities further eased pandemic-related restrictions after largely eradicating a small covid-19 outbreak in the capital under China’s strict “zero-covid” approach.
Museums, cinemas and gyms were allowed to operate at up to 75% of capacity and delivery drivers could once again bring packages to a customer’s door, rather than leave them to be picked up at the entrances to apartment compounds.
The return to near-normal applied everywhere in Beijing except for one district and part of another, where the outbreak lingered. Schools, which partially reopened earlier, will fully do so on June 13, followed by kindergartens on June 20.
More ‘covid’ confusion over why boosted Americans exceedingly test positive | added June 6
As covid-19 cases began to accelerate again this spring, federal data suggests the rate of breakthrough covid infections in April was worse in boosted Americans compared to unboosted Americans — though rates of deaths and hospitalizations remained the lowest among the boosted.
The new data do not mean booster shots are somehow increasing the risk. Ongoing studies continue to provide strong evidence of additional protection offered by booster shots against infection, severe disease, and death.
Instead, the shift underscores the growing complexity of measuring vaccine effectiveness at this stage of the pandemic. It comes as officials are weighing key decisions on booster shots and pandemic surveillance, including whether to continue using the “crude case rates” at all.
Plastic pollution on track to triple globally by 2060, according to a new report | added June 6
A new report out Friday from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) warns that the amount of plastic waste worldwide is likely to nearly triple over the next four decades, leaving the world with a terrible fate by 2060 if “radical action” is not taken to curb the level of pollution.
The report — titled “Global Plastics Outlook: Policy Scenarios to 2060” — predicts that nearly two-thirds of the estimated plastic waste polluting the environment by 2060 will come from short-lived and single-use products such as packaging, cheap toys, consumer goods, household items and textiles.
The report lays out projections of future plastic production and consumption as well as a set of policy scenarios that, if enacted, could drastically reduce the scale of the crisis humanity has created with its over-reliance on cheap plastics derived largely from fossil fuels.
“Trucking For Freedom” new docuseries available now for streaming | added June 6
The description reads:
“For thirty-three days, the world watched. Crossing ten provinces and three territories, thousands of trucks traversed the highways and by-ways of Canada’s northern climes in this exclusive docuseries offering an immersive look into an extraordinary moment in Canadian history. The Chronicle Brothers embedded themselves within the Canadian Trucker Convoy, capturing the unifying pulse of everyday people.”
“The directors blend interviews and live footage, journaling unbiased truths intrinsically viewed through a camera lens. They expose the raw emotion and purpose of those who felt compelled to embark on a journey fraught with both joy and sorrow.”
“The film lays bare a deep and broadening divide within a country known for unity and trust, and how two years of lockdowns illuminated the disparity in the working class and the political landscape. It gives a raw and unpolished visual of diverse Canadians holding a gutted Canadian Charter up to a spotlight and hoping to be heard.”
The ‘covid’ commedia | added June 6
The following represents over two years of careful research and close logical reasoning, brought to fruition in one middle-of-the-night conversation when, sleepless through worry over the future of civilization – tea and ginger biscuits to hand – Olivia and I turned to the only subject that never quite goes away: covid.
“It’s got to be aliens.”
She looks at me. “What on earth are you on about?”
“That’s just it: not on Earth – out there!”
When it comes to the covid narrative, and the absurdities it has propagated, the alien explanation is merely elementary deduction. By discounting everything it can’t be – à la Sherlock Holmes – what you’re left with, no matter how unlikely it seems, must be true.

Chinese scientists claim to have used an AI robot to clone pigs | added June 4
Chinese researchers from the University of Nankai have reportedly come up with a way to clone pigs entirely via the use of robots – which could potentially signal the rise of automated cloning of animals moving forward.
The feat was successfully accomplished when a surrogate sow located in the university managed to birth seven cloned pigs back in March this year. “Each step of the cloning process was automated, and no human operation was involved,” said Liu Yaowei, who contributed to the development of the system and process.
Previously, the university had successfully managed to produce piglets cloned using robots, except that many parts of the process still involved humans, and by relation, a higher margin of error.
Vaccine Adverse Reporting System overwhelmed with 1,287,595 injuries from ‘covid’ shots | added June 4
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released new data showing a total of 1,287,595 reports of adverse events following covid-19 vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 27, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). That’s an increase of 9,615 adverse events over the previous week.
VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S. The data included a total of 28,532 reports of deaths — an increase of 220 over the previous week — and 235,041 serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 2,347compared with the previous week.
Excluding “foreign reports” to VAERS, 825,454 adverse events, including 13,150 deaths and 83,454 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 27, 2022.
CDC warns ‘monkeypox’ virus could be spreading from person to person in the U.S. | added June 4
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday warned that monkeypox could be spreading from person to person in the U.S.
Some of the monkeypox cases in the U.S. have not been linked to recent travel to countries where the virus typically spreads, suggesting instead that the virus is spreading in the community, according to the CDC.
“There could be community level transmission that is happening, and that’s why we want to really increase our surveillance efforts,” Jennifer McQuiston of the CDC said on a call with reporters. As of Thursday, the CDC has confirmed 20 cases of monkeypox across 11 states. More than 700 cases have been reported globally.
“Vaccidents” spike all around the world while “our free press” ignores reports | added June 4
As “vaccidents” keep happening in unprecedented numbers, all around the world, “our free press” just keeps doing what it does best, and what best serves Big Pharma: find ways to make us think this sudden global uptick of falls, crashes and mysterious drownings—a spike that started soon after the rollout of those “vaccines”—has absolutely nothing to do with them.
Here, for example, is a typically dishonest (or deluded) bit of “journalism” from the NPR affiliate in East Lansing, Michigan (showing that “public radio” is every bit as venal and untrustworthy as the corporate press): Bad covid driving habits impact 2021 accident rates.
June 2, 2022. Some recent, and non-fatal, “vaccidents” reported in the US, UK, Russia and—especially—Italy, where such weird mishaps and “sudden deaths” appear to be more numerous than in any other country on the planet.

Brad Johnson, ‘Melrose Place’ star allegedly dies from ‘covid’ complications | added June 4
Brad Johnson, an actor who appeared in Steven Spielberg’s “Always” and Fox series “Melrose Place,” died of covid-19 complications, his talent agent said.
He was 62. His talent agent, Linda McAlister, confirmed his Feb. 18 death in Fort Worth, Texas, to NBC News on Friday. “Brad was a true renaissance man,” his family wrote in his obituary. “Although he was taken too early, he lived life to the fullest and taught his children to do the same.”
The family added: “Brad greatly enjoyed improving and enhancing land, in a way that maintained and respected its natural beauty. He always felt most at home outdoors, and his passion for the land made that evident. As much as he loved cowboying, hunting and land, Brad loved nothing more than his family.”
Menstrual cycle irregularities or ‘decidual cast’ spiked during ‘covid’ injection rollout | added June 4
The first of three peer-reviewed research studies on women who suffered menstrual irregularities or a decidual cast around the time covid vaccines were rolled out begins to shed light on the sudden spike of this historically rare gynecological abnormality.
A decidual cast is when the inside lining of the uterus (endometrium) is shed intact, the entire lining is shed in one piece. “What a decidual cast is is the sloughing off of the entire inside of the uterus all at once, generally preceded by several days of intense cramping as the uterus contracts. So what is passed is a ‘cast’ of the inside of the uterus,” Dr. Christiane Northrup, a co-author of the study, told The Epoch Times.
Over the past 109 years, decidual cast shedding (DCS) had less than 40 reported cases in the medical literature. The event had been so rare that there are only case studies and population prevalence data doesn’t exist, according to the research.
#DefendTheThoughtPolice: A letter to U.S. legislators that rejects censorship | added June 4

Below is one of the dubious duties delineated in S.3737:
(C) strategies to improve communication and dissemination of scientific and evidence-based public health information to the public, and, as appropriate, to address misinformation during public health emergencies, including strategies to—
(i) identify the most effective methods for the dissemination of information during a public health emergency;
(ii) determine best practices and communicate information to populations that may be impacted by such misinformation; and
(iii) adapt approaches for the dissemination of information, as appropriate, to address emerging trends related to misinformation.

White House says inoculating children younger than 5 years-old could begin June 21 | added June 3
Covid-19 vaccination shots for the youngest Americans could begin as soon as June 21, the White House said on Thursday. The vaccination program for children younger than 5 would come more than 18 months after vaccines were first authorized for adults.
Dr. Ashish Jha, White House coronavirus response coordinator, laid out a timeline for authorization of vaccines for children younger than 5 at an afternoon news briefing.
The US Food and Drug Administration’s vaccine advisers will review data submitted by Pfizer and Moderna during a meeting on June 14-15, and the agency will then decide whether to authorize the vaccines for emergency use. “We expect an FDA decision shortly after the advisory committee meeting, and we look forward to this process playing out,” Jha said.
Fauci’s NIH was awarded $9.8 million dollars last year to test ‘monkeypox’ treatments | added June 3
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), directed by Dr. Anthony Fauci, last year paid $9.8 million to government researchers to test a monkeypox treatment, the National Pulse reported.
According to the National Institutes for Health (NIH), which oversees the NIAID, the research began Sept. 28, 2020 and will conclude Sept. 27, 2025. Its goal is to carry out a “randomized, placebo-controlled trial of the safety and efficacy of tecovirimat for the treatment of patients with monkeypox virus disease.” It is unclear if the grant provided for any payments in 2020.
The NIAID awarded the grant to the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research, a federally funded research and development center in Frederick, Maryland, supported by the National Cancer Institute.
Novavax hopes to win ‘covid’ shot approval with traditional protein jab among unvaxed | added June 3
Americans may soon get a new covid-19 vaccine option — shots made with a more tried-and-true technology than today’s versions. The big question: Why should they care?
After long delays, the Food and Drug Administration is expected to decide within weeks whether to authorize Novavax’s vaccine. It’s late in the pandemic for a new choice, with about three-quarters of U.S. adults already vaccinated.
But the company is hoping to find a niche among some of the unvaccinated millions who might agree to a more traditional kind of shot — a protein vaccine — and also to become a top choice for boosters, regardless of which type people got first. Only about half of vaccinated adults have gotten a booster.
Davos: We create our own reality | added June 3
The world watched in varying states of mind as the Davos set enjoyed its annual turn on the world stage, supping on sumptuous Atlantic crab and fresh Iberian pork, sustainable Norwegian cod, and the best Italian coffee.
When not tucking into a lavish feast, they bandied about their ideas for how the world ought to exploited (the key euphemisms here are “sustainable,” “stakeholder,” and “impossible beef.”) Some revile and protest the annual ruling class summit, but many millions more embrace it, even gaze admirably at the mandarins of the new world order as they flit across mobile screens and offer uplifting quotes to curious media attendees.
Indeed, few seem to care as the cabal of monied interests chat amiably about centrally managed digital currencies, consolidating global health authority in unelected bodies, collapsing the world economy, generating needless food shortages, unpopular fake meat, and other new market opportunities. Fewer still see the implicit threat of globalist agendas to the rule of sovereign states.
World Health Organization’s 2022 meeting attempts to end sovereignty and freedom | added June 3
Even as much of the world continues to move past the covid-19 pandemic, the World Health Organization (WHO) is already looking ahead and preparing for the emergence of “other pandemics and other major health emergencies.”
To ensure that the world is adequately prepared for future pandemics, “the World Health Assembly” held a special session, on December 1, 2021, entitled The World Together. The World Health Assembly is “the decision-making body of WHO” and “is attended by delegations from all WHO Member States and focuses on a specific health agenda prepared by the Executive Board.”
In this special session, which was actually only “the second-ever since WHO’s founding in 1948,” participants agreed to “draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”
Moderna’s billionaire CEO pledges to eventually donate ‘successful covid shot’ fortune | added June 3
Moderna’s efforts to develop, manufacture and market its massively successful covid-19 vaccine have made CEO Stéphane Bancel a billionaire. Eventually, the helmsman plans to give away most of his fortune, he told Bloomberg.
During an interview with Bloomberg on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum meeting, Bancel said he’s told his children they will get a good education and the family home, “but the rest we’re going to give away.” As a major shareholder in Moderna, he’s worth about $4.1 billion, according to Bloomberg.
Other prominent billionaires such as Bill Gates and MacKenzie Scott have made similar pledges to donate much of their wealth, Business Insider notes.
GOP lawmakers demand answers over major teachers’ union partnership with ‘disinformation’ service | added June 3
Republicans in Congress are sounding alarms over a partnership agreement between the NewsGuard ‘disinformation’ service and a major teachers’ union, arguing the tool is prone to bias and the union is deliberately politicizing American students.
In letters sent to both NewsGuard and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), GOP Representatives Virginia Foxx (North Carolina), Jim Banks (Indiana), and Burgess Owens (Utah) slammed the two organizations for a “history of demonstrating left-wing bias,” according to Fox News.

The New York Times acknowledges mask mandates do not work at controlling ‘covid’ pandemic | added June 2
Covid cases and hospitalizations are rising again in the U.S., and deaths are starting to rise, too. In response, many people are understandably asking what the country can do to minimize the virus’s toll in the weeks ahead.
So far, a lot of discussion has focused on mask mandates. Schools in Philadelphia; Providence, R.I.; Berkeley, Calif.; and Brookline, Mass., have reimposed theirs, as have several colleges. Elsewhere, some people are frustrated that officials, like New York City’s mayor, Eric Adams, have not done so.
Critics have accused these leaders of a lack of political courage, saying that they are yielding to Covid fatigue rather than imposing necessary public health measures. But I think that the criticism misreads both the history of public health and the recent scientific evidence about mask mandates.
WHO casts doubt on North Korea’s improved ‘covid’ infection rate due to lack of ‘privileged information’ | added June 2
The World Health Organization has cast doubts on North Korea’s claims of progress in its fight against a covid-19 outbreak, saying it believes the situation is getting worse, not better, amid an absence of independent data.
North Korean state media has said the covid wave has abated, after daily numbers of people with fever topped 390,000 about two weeks ago. Pyongyang has never directly confirmed how many people have tested positive for the virus but experts suspect underreporting in the figures released through government-controlled media, making it difficult to assess the scale of the situation.
“We assume the situation is getting worse, not better,” WHO emergencies chief Michael Ryan said during a video briefing Wednesday. He said the WHO did not have access to any privileged information beyond the numbers publicly reported by state media.
Iranian health minister marks first day without one ‘covid’ death since the start of pandemic | added June 2
TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s health minister said Thursday the country has marked its first day after more than two years without a single covid-19 death, lauding this as a significant milestone for a nation that long had the highest number of coronavirus cases in the Middle East.
The ministry reported 175 new cases over the past day, bringing Iran’s number of confirmed cases during the pandemic to more than 7,230,000. Iran’s officially registered death toll stands at 141,318.
“Iran has experienced the first day without a coronavirus death while America and Europe still have high casualty rates,” tweeted Health Minister Bahram Einollahi. At its peak in the pandemic, in August 2021, Iran registered more than 50,000 new cases a day. That same month also marked the highest daily number of fatalities, 709 deaths a day.
Fauci admits Biden’s appeal over mask mandates is about authoritative control not about public health | added June 2
Appearing on Fox News Wednesday, Anthony Fauci appeared to admit that the Biden administration’s efforts to reinstate mask mandates on planes and trains is about preserving “authority” over public health decisions, not about keeping people safe.
Earlier in the week, the Justice Department asked an appeals court to overturn a federal judge’s order that mask mandates were unlawful. Fauci said at the time that more time was needed and that mask mandates should be kept in place. Now he admits it’s not about health concerns, but purely about maintaining power.
Speaking with Fox host Neil Cavuto, Fauci said “One of the issues, Neil, that I have articulated in the past and I will in the future – it’s less about mandates on the plane than it is about who has the right and the authority and the capability of making public health decisions.”
WHO director says ‘monkeypox’ virus has been spreading ‘undetected’ across the world for some time | added June 2
The World Health Organization on Wednesday confirmed more than 550 monkeypox cases across 30 countries as the virus continues to spread across the globe.
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the sudden appearance of monkeypox in multiple countries across the world indicates the virus has been spreading undetected for some time outside the West and Central African nations where it is usually found.
The virus may have been transmitted for months or years undetected though investigations are ongoing and there are clear no answers yet, according to Dr. Rosamund Lewis, the WHO’s monkeypox technical lead.
The agenda behind the current, planned food crisis | added June 2
We’re in the early stages of a food crisis. The press has been predicting this for years, but up until now it always appeared to be nothing more than fearmongering, designed to worry or distract people, but the signs are there that this time, to quote Joe Biden, it “is going to be real”.
Nobody knows how bad it could get, except the people who are creating it. Because the evidence is pretty clear, it is being deliberately & cold-bloodedly created. We’ve been documenting it for months. We have Russia’s “special operation” in Ukraine driving up the price of staple foods, wheat and sunflower oil, as well as fertiliser.
We have the sudden “bird flu outbreak” driving up the price of poultry and eggs. The soaring price of oil is driving up the cost of food distribution. The inflation caused by huge influxes of fiat currency means families are spending more money on less food. And as all this is happening, the US and UK (and maybe others, we don’t know) are literally paying farmers not to farm.
Two more people test positive for presumed ‘monkeypox’ virus in NYC | added June 2
Two more people have tested positive for what is presumed to be monkeypox in New York City, city health officials said Wednesday.
“Two more people have tested positive for orthopoxvirus in NYC, which is presumed to be monkeypox. We will be conducting contact tracing and monitoring and will refer people for care if necessary. Monkeypox is rare in New York City but we can prevent the spread,” the city Department of Health and Mental Hygiene tweeted.
As of Tuesday night, the CDC said there were 18 confirmed cases nationwide from the recent outbreak. That’s double from the agency’s update last Thursday. Globally, the World Health Organization has identified infections from the current outbreak in 12 countries.
Timeline discussion: Bill Gate’s BIOMILQ push for formula disaster | added June 2
JUNE 2020 – Bill Gates announced a startup called BIOMILQ. It’s backed by some of the richest investors in the world, like Zuckerburg. It raised $3.5 million in Series A funding from Breakthrough Energy Ventures. Breakthrough Energy Ventures is Bill Gates’ investment firm focused on climate change.
SEPTEMBER 2020 – Remember that $3.5 million in BIOMILQ money? Well, according to a receipt from the Gates Foundation, it paid The Guardian $3.5 million in September 2020. This was an initial offering from the Gates Foundation. Of course, right after on September 27, the Guardian published an article entitled “Antibodies in breast milk remain for 10 months after covid infection – study.”
February 2022 – Customs and Border Patrol officers said that they inspected 17 separate shipments of formulas that came from Europe. Border patrol consulted with the FDA. Of course, the FDA said it had safety concerns about noncompliant baby formula. The same month, the FDA announces it is looking into bacterial contamination at the Abbott formula production plant in Michigan that’s supposedly behind the baby formula shortage.
Justice Department appeals U.S. District Court judge’s order declaring federal mask mandates unlawful | added June 1
WASHINGTON — The Justice Department on Tuesday asked a federal appeals court to overturn a U.S. District Court judge’s April order that declared the government mandate requiring masks on airplanes, buses and in transit hubs unlawful.
Hours after the federal judge in Florida declared the mandate unlawful, the Biden administration said it would no longer enforce it. The Justice Department told the appeals court that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention order issued in January 2021 was “within” the agency’s legal authority.
The CDC did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday on whether it would reinstate the requirement if the ruling was overturned. Days before U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball’s April 18 order, the CDC had extended mask requirements through May 3. The CDC said earlier this month it still recommends travelers continue to wear masks in airplanes, trains and buses.
Supreme Court temporarily blocks a Texas law that prevents social media outlets from censoring political views | added June 1
The Supreme Court voted 5-4 late on May 31 to temporarily block a Texas law that prevents social media platforms from censoring users based on their political views. Known as HB 20, the state law makes it unlawful for tech platforms to restrict or remove content based on “the viewpoint of the user or another person” or “the viewpoint represented in the user’s expression.”
The statute also requires the platforms to establish procedures users can use to appeal a platform’s decision to “remove content posted by the user.” The law applies to platforms that have more than 50 million active monthly users in the United States.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, signed the bill in September 2021. The case is Netchoice v. Paxton, court file 21A720. The applicants are two trade associations representing big tech—Netchoice and the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA). The respondent is Ken Paxton, a Republican who is the attorney general of Texas. Silicon Valley giants oppose the legislation, claiming it is unconstitutional.
Major supermarkets begin rolling out facial recognition and fingerprint scanning for biometric payments | added June 1
Mastercard recently launched a program for retailers to offer biometric payment methods, like facial recognition and fingerprint scanning. At the checkout, users will be forced to authenticate their payment by showing their face or the palm of their hand instead of being allowed to pay by card or with cash.
The program has already gone live in five St Marche grocery stores in Sao Paulo, Brazil, with more trials also planned for Asia and the Middle East. Mastercard says it plans to roll it out globally later this year. The payments company wants to roll the programme out worldwide for small and large retailers.
Ajay Bhalla, the president of cyber and intelligence at Mastercard, said: “The way we pay needs to keep pace with the way we live, work and do business, offering choice to consumers with the highest levels of security. “Our goal with this new programme is to make shopping a great experience for consumers and merchants alike, providing the best of both security and convenience. “All the research that we’ve done has told us that consumers love biometrics”.
Freed Shanghai residents celebrate in streets as fences come down, while many still confined | added June 1
HONG KONG — After more than two months of harsh lockdown, China’s largest city, Shanghai, began to unlock at the stroke of midnight Wednesday.
As metal fencing came down around most communities and private vehicles returned to the roads, spontaneous gatherings popped up across the city, with selfies on the historic Bund promenade along the Huangpu riverfront and street-corner hangouts amongst reunited friends in the Former French Concession.
The Chinese authorities appeared to have tamed the omicron variant outbreak that stopped China’s financial and commercial capital in its tracks for more than 65 days.

Tribute to John Lauritsen, author of “Poison by Prescription: the AZT Story” | added June 1
John Lauritsen — author, scholar, gay historian and critic of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s HIV/AIDS empire — has passed away. He is believed to have died on his birthday, March 5, at his home in Dorchester, Massachusetts at the age of 83.
He was in good health, and his death was unexpected. “In my time I’ve been an antiwar activist, a gay liberationist, an AIDS dissident, a publisher, and an all-around freethinker,” Lauritsen wrote at Pagan Press, the publishing imprint he founded in 1982.
“I’ve spoken out when people with common sense kept their mouth shut. I’ve exposed fraud, punctured group fantasies and blasphemed against the prevailing superstitions.”
Digital diabetes management industry expected to reach 86.4 billion dollars by 2030 | added June 1
Digital Diabetes Management Industry is anticipated to register 20.6% CAGR between 2022 and 2030 due to expanding base of diabetic population coupled with higher adoption of smart devices.
SELBYVILLE, Del., June 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The digital diabetes management market value is projected to reach USD 86.4 Billion by 2030, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc. Increasing prevalence of diabetes coupled with growing awareness regarding preventive care is anticipated to fuel the market expansion.
Increasing number of diabetes patients, globally, is driving the adoption of digital diabetes management products. High disease prevalence is primarily due to increasing incidence of obesity and adoption of sedentary lifestyle. Further, the pervasiveness of diabetes is highest in geriatric population, thus, the expanding elderly pool will ultimately contribute to the overall burden of diabetes worldwide.
Britain urges people with ‘monkeypox’ to abstain from sex | added June 1
U.K. health authorities have urged anyone who tests positive for the monkeypox virus to abstain from sex until their symptoms have cleared.
In new guidance released Monday, the U.K. Health Security Agency also recommended that previously infected persons continue to use condoms for a period of eight weeks after the virus has passed, as a precautionary measure.
The health agency said the risks to the general public remain low, but encouraged people to contact a health professional if they notice any unusual rashes or lesions. The advice comes after Britain recorded an additional 71 cases of the virus over the weekend, bringing the U.K. total to 179 less than a month after its first case was on May 7.

CDC praises anti-viral pill Paxlovid regardless of rebound ‘covid’ side effects | added May 31
As covid-19 cases continue to rise, Paxlovid is being prescribed to try to keep high-risk patients out of the hospital. But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning of potential “covid-19 rebound” after a five-day course of the treatment.
“If you take Paxlovid, you might get symptoms again,” CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told CBS News. “We haven’t yet seen anybody who has returned with symptoms needing to go to the hospital. So, generally, a milder course.”
After a patient recovers, rebound has been reported to occur two to eight days later. Still, the CDC says the benefits of taking Paxlovid far outweigh the risks. Among unvaccinated people at high risk for severe disease, it reduced the risk of hospitalization and death by nearly 90%, according to the CDC.
Shanghai eases strict ‘covid’ restrictions after two months of lockdown | added May 31
BEIJING — Shanghai authorities say they will take some major steps Wednesday toward reopening China’s largest city after a two-month covid-19 lockdown that has throttled the national economy and largely bottled up millions of people in their homes.
Full bus and subway service will be restored as will basic rail connections with the rest of China, Vice Mayor Zong Ming said Tuesday at a daily news conference on the city’s outbreak.
Schools will partially reopen on a voluntary basis for students and shopping malls, supermarkets, convenience stores and drug stores will continue to reopen gradually with no more than 75% of their total capacity. Cinemas and gyms will remain closed.

“I’ve seen pictures of me from a long time ago. I’m happy,” she said. “That person is no more. “We’ve been under a lot of stress. I can’t think straight. I have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I have anxiety. I can barely leave my house. I have an 8-year-old I have to care for.”
Unprecedented ‘monkeypox’ virus outbreak sets stage for Big Pharma vax profits | added May 31
As an unprecedented outbreak of monkeypox spreads throughout the west, questions continue to swirl around the origin of the outbreak, the risk it poses to the public and the measures that may or may not be required to contain the virus.
Some also wondered how unexpected the outbreak was after learning about a March 2021 tabletop simulation of a hypothetical deadly outbreak of monkeypox predicted to occur in May 2022. The Nuclear Threat Initiative and the Munich Security Conference — entities closely connected to the World Economic Forum (WEF), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security — conducted the tabletop exercise.
Some analysts suggested the outbreak may have resulted from gain-of-function research or similar experiments involving the virus, while others floated the theory that malign actors, perhaps related to the conflict in Ukraine, intentionally released the virus.
UK man dies from blood clots two weeks after AstraZeneca shot | added May 31
A UK man died as a result of blood clots two weeks after receiving an AstraZeneca jab, which he may have refused had he been given updated info on the risks, an inquest heard this week.
Redditch resident and automotive design graduate Jack Hurn, 26, received AstraZeneca’s covid vaccine on May 29, 2021, after being told there were no Pfizer jabs in stock. Within days, Hurn began suffering headaches and had to undergo emergency surgery at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
After Hurn’s death on June 11, doctors informed his family he’d sustained numerous “catastrophic” blood clots in his brain. According to area coroner Emma Brown, Hurn was “told the risk was 1 in 250,000,” however, experts say the actual risk of blood clots is closer to 1 in 100,000.
Mastercard launches new facial recognition technology for biometric payment methods | added May 31
Mastercard is piloting new technology that lets shoppers make payments with just their face or hand at the checkout point. The company on Tuesday launched a program for retailers to offer biometric payment methods, like facial recognition and fingerprint scanning.
At checkout, users will be able to authenticate their payment by showing their face or the palm of their hand instead of swiping their card. The program has already gone live in five St Marche grocery stores in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Mastercard says it plans to roll it out globally later this year.
“All the research that we’ve done has told us that consumers love biometrics,” Ajay Bhalla, Mastercard’s president of cyber and intelligence, told CNBC.
Scientists say monkeypox is not like covid nor created in a lab | added May 31
While fears about the monkeypox outbreak are understandable, scientists say this virus is not like covid, and most experts think its spread will be limited.
It is much harder to pass on than covid, we already have available vaccines and treatments, and people appear to be infectious only once symptoms appear – making it easier to spot and isolate. So restrictions such as lockdowns or mass vaccinations are “really not going to be the way to respond to this”, says Prof Peter Horby, director of the Pandemic Sciences Centre at the University of Oxford.
Instead, isolation measures and vaccines are currently being targeted at infected people or their close contacts. Dr Rosamund Lewis, of the World Health Organization (WHO) Emergencies Programme, confirmed there was no need for mass vaccination, and the WHO has also recommended against any travel restrictions.

George Soros speaking at World Economic Forum 2022 on the potential collapse of civilization through World War III draws audience laughter | added May 30
Since the last Davos meeting the course of history has changed dramatically. Russia invaded Ukraine. This has shaken Europe to its core. The European Union was established to prevent such a thing from happening. Even when the fighting stops as it eventually must, the situation will never revert to what it was before.
The invasion may have been the beginning of the Third World War and our civilization may not survive it. That is the subject I will address this evening. The invasion of Ukraine didn’t come out of the blue. The world has been increasingly engaged in a struggle between two systems of governance that are diametrically opposed to each other: open society and closed society. Let me define the difference as simply as I can.
In an open society, the role of the state is to protect the freedom of the individual; in a closed society the role of the individual is to serve the rulers of the state.
Some universities and public school systems reimpose indoor mask mandates due to rising ‘covid’ cases | added May 30
As coronavirus cases have increased across the United States, some universities and public school systems have reimposed indoor mask mandates on their campuses, a sign that while the academic year may be coming to a close, the pandemic is still not.
The University of Hawaii’s mandate was expanded Wednesday on its 10 campuses, requiring masks in all indoor spaces except when working alone or where social distancing is possible. The university said it took the action because nearly the whole state was now in the high-risk category for community transmission under Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance.
The University of Delaware cited rising new-case reports and hospitalizations both in its home state and across the nation when it announced its mask mandate would once again include all indoor spaces, effective Tuesday. President Biden, an alumnus, is scheduled to give a commencement address at the university on Saturday.
NYC pauses enforcement of ‘covid’ vax mandates for New York Police Department employees | added May 30
New York City paused its covid-19 vaccine mandate for New York Police Department (NYPD) employees so the department can retain roughly 5,000 police and other employees who have not received the vaccine.
The May 19 announcement came one day after Magistrate Judge Vera M. Scanlon issued an order allowing depositions to be taken in a class-action lawsuit on behalf of NYPD and municipal employees alleging the city violated their religious and constitutional rights through widespread discrimination.
According to city officials, 91% of the NYPD uniformed cops and other employees are vaccinated, leaving approximately 4,659 NYPD unvaccinated employees despite a deadline to get the jabs by Oct. 29, 2021.
World Health Organization confirms 257 ‘monkeypox’ cases worldwide | added May 30
The World Health Organization has received reports of 257 confirmed monkeypox cases and about 120 suspected cases in 23 nations where the virus is not endemic as of Thursday, it said in a Sunday update.
In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported 12 cases in eight states as of Friday afternoon. In five African countries where monkeypox is commonly found, the WHO said it has received reports of 1,365 cases and 69 deaths due to the virus. These illnesses were reported in various periods ranging from mid-December to late May.
No deaths have been reported in nonendemic countries. “Since 2017, the few deaths of persons with monkeypox in West Africa have been associated with young age or an untreated HIV infection,” the WHO said in Sunday’s report.

Memorial day weekend: U.S. ‘covid’ case count six times higher than last year at this time, according to John Hopkins research | added May 30
As the US marks Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial start of summer, the seven-day average for covid-19 cases in the U.S. are more than six times what they were a year ago. The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center showed a seven-day average of 119,725 cases as of Saturday. That figure held at 17,887 cases on May 28 of last year.
Despite the rising infection rate, covid-related deaths were down from last year, a sign of increased immunity through vaccines and prior infections, along with wider availability of treatments.
The seven-day average of 470 deaths reported on Friday marked a decrease from 637 on the same day last year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has said that about 54 percent of the U.S. population is experiencing low covid-19 community levels, though some areas are seeing medium and high levels.
Woman’s avatar sexually assaulted in Facebook’s Metaverse | added May 30
A woman’s avatar in Facebook parent Meta’s new Horizon Worlds platform was sexually assaulted, according to advocacy group SumOfUs’ report.
The 21-year-old woman, who works for SumOfUs as a researcher, was in a virtual room on Horizon Worlds, a metaverse platform released last December in the U.S. and Canada. She was in the room with two male avatars that were making obscene comments to her, and one of them was very close to her. SumOfUs included a clip of the event in its report this month focused on sexual violence, hate speech and content moderation issues at Meta.
Sexual harassment has been an ongoing issue that SumOfUs is researching. Earlier this year, another woman named Nina Jane Patel reported being “virtually gang raped” within a minute of logging onto Horizon.
This week in the new normal | added May 30
1. Gun control back in the news: America has been a dangerous place this past month – even more so than usual. A couple of weeks ago we had the Buffalo shooting, where a young man allegedly stormed into a supermarket and shot several patrons in the name of “protecting the white race”. Apparently, there was a manifesto.
This week, a “loner” teenager stormed an elementary school where he shot 19 pupils and 2 teachers. The story is that police let him run rampant inside the school for almost an hour for fear they might “get shot”.
Just yesterday, a man allegedly opened fire on a high school graduation with an AR15, only to be in-turn shot by a woman with a pistol. We’re all familiar with the tropes. “Loner” suspects on psychotropic medications who are “known to the FBI”. Violent video games, improbable timelines, constantly shifting, mutually contradictory story points and inexplicable finances.

Florida approves release of billions of experimental GMO mosquitoes without sufficient data on human health and environmental effects | added May 28
FDACS’ approval comes on the heels of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) granting the British biotechnology company Oxitec a two-year extension for its Experimental Use Permit for the release of a GE version of the species Aedes aegypti across Monroe County, Florida.
“FDACS should have required Oxitec to cease claiming as ‘confidential business information’ their data on the human health and environmental effects of the release of the mosquitoes,” said Jaydee Hanson, Policy Director at Center for Food Safety. “In Spain, when Oxitec withheld the data, the Spanish government told Oxitec to make public the health and environmental safety effects of their genetically engineered insect.
Moderna dumps 30 million ‘covid’ shots, Pfizer CEO blames ‘misinformation’ | added May 28
The producers of the two leading covid-19 vaccines are experiencing a “big demand problem.” At the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, on Thursday, Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel said his company is “in the process of throwing 30 million doses in the garbage because nobody wants them.”
“We have a big demand problem,” he said, the Washington Examiner reported. Bancel said Moderna has contacted leaders in several countries to see if they want the vaccines, but there is no interest.
“And so, the challenge we have right now is very different to the one we had two years ago,” he said. “Referencing the United States in particular, he said the issue in many countries is that people don’t want vaccines.”
World Economic Forum stakes ‘leadership role’ in building the ‘metaverse’ | added May 28
The World Economic Forum (WEF) is on track to be at the center of defining what the future metaverse will look like by inserting itself in the metaverse’s creation early on.
WEF’s “multistakeholder initiative” wants to assume a leadership role in defining and building the metaverse, Facebook (Meta) President of Global Affairs and former British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has announced.
The initiative, laid out in a post on the Davos event’s website, is ambitious: it seeks to provide guidance on creating “an ethical, inclusive, economically viable metaverse,” and represent the link between businesses, regulators, civil society, and academia from both the private and public sectors.
CDC panel recommends ‘monkeypox’ shot for certain lab and health workers | added May 28
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has put out its first vaccine guidance related to a recent outbreak of monkeypox cases across the U.S. and Europe – with health workers and others responding to the uptick in cases first in line to get the shots.
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), the CDC’s leading experts on vaccines, issued the recommendation Friday, and it will include lab workers who research orthopoxviruses, people who work in lab testing environments, and health care personnel who are treating infected patients.
The JYNNEOS vaccine in question is tailored to both smallpox and monkeypox – just as many other smallpox drugs are also believed to be effective against the rare virus. Certain laboratorians and health care personnel can be exposed to orthopoxviruses through occupational activities,’ ACIP wrote in its report.
One hundred thousand Chinese officials hold emergency meeting to recover ‘covid’ hit economy | added May 28
Hong Kong (CNN Business) China’s cabinet held an emergency meeting with more than 100,000 participants on Wednesday, according to state media, as top leaders urged new measures to stabilize an economy battered by the country’s stringent covid-19 restrictions.
The unexpected video teleconference by the State Council was attended by officials across provincial, city and council levels, according to a report in the government-owned Global Times. High-ranking Chinese officials were also present, including Premier Li Keqiang, who urged authorities to take action in sustaining jobs and reducing unemployment.
The world’s second-largest economy has suffered across various sectors since a covid wave spread in March, prompting lockdown measures in many major cities — most notably the financial hub Shanghai, where many have been unable to leave their homes or neighborhoods for a month and a half.

Latest VAERS data shows young boy died of myocarditis after Pfizer shot while CDC pushes third dose for children ages 5-11 | added May 28
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released new data showing a total of 1,277,980 reports of adverse events following covid-19 vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 20, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). That’s an increase of 9,972 adverse events over the previous week.
VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S. The data included a total of 28,312 reports of deaths — an increase of 171 over the previous week — and 232,694 serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 2,330 compared with the previous week.
Excluding “foreign reports” to VAERS, 820,788 adverse events, including 13,045 deaths and 82,974 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 20, 2022.
Scientists predicted the continuing increase of ‘monkeypox’ outbreaks in 1988 | added May 28
Back in 1988, scientists in London almost seem to have had a crystal ball. Writing in the International Journal of Epidemiology, they made a bold – and surprisingly prescient – prediction about monkeypox: Over time, “the average magnitude and duration of monkeypox epidemics will increase,” they wrote.
At the time, monkeypox was an extremely rare disease. Health-care workers detected only a few cases a year in West and Central Africa. People caught the disease almost exclusively from rodents or primates and then spread the virus to only a few people. Transmission between people was limited.
But the foresighted scientists warned that, over time, these sporadic outbreaks would grow in size and spread geographically. “In every monkeypox paper on previous outbreaks, there’s always a warning about how we need to prepare for more outbreaks in the future,” says infectious disease doctor Boghuma Titanji of Emory University. “That prediction has actually borne out.”

Dear Friend and Reader:
We are as stunned as anyone to be covering a second “pandemic” while the first one is still on the front page of The New York Times. Apparently, though, not everyone is experiencing the element of surprise. The current monkeypox rollout was planned for this month during a pandemic war-game exercise held in March of 2021.
Drs. Samantha and Mark Bailey have excellent coverage of this; the planning event happened, and now we all know it. If you don’t see this fact being reported on CNN, maybe that’s because it was co-sponsored by Ted Turner, the founder of the network.
Forget that there is no medical documentation of human-to-human transmission; they predicted it would happen — exactly in mid-May 2022 — and by golly, it did. For alternate coverage, check with the Brownstone Institute.
Scientists warn the ‘ghost of omicron past’ may cause more harm than original strain | added May 27
The coronavirus mutant that is now dominant in the United States is a member of the omicron family but scientists say it spreads faster than its omicron predecessors, is adept at escaping immunity and might possibly cause more serious disease.
Why? Because it combines properties of both omicron and delta, the nation’s dominant variant in the middle of last year. A genetic trait that harkens back to the pandemic’s past, known as a “delta mutation,” appears to allow the virus “to escape pre-existing immunity from vaccination and prior infection, especially if you were infected in the omicron wave,” said Dr. Wesley Long, a pathologist at Houston Methodist in Texas.
That’s because the original omicron strain that swept the world didn’t have the mutation. The omicron “subvariant” gaining ground in the U.S. — known as BA.2.12.1 and responsible for 58% of U.S. covid-19 cases last week — isn’t the only one affected by the delta mutation. The genetic change is also present in the omicron relatives that together dominate in South Africa, known as BA.4 and BA.5.
White House pushes more of Pfizer’s Paxlovid anti-viral drug pill for ‘covid’ patients | added May 27
White House officials said on Thursday that they were introducing new models for distributing Paxlovid, the covid-19 oral medication made by Pfizer, in an effort to get the treatment to more people and keep coronavirus death rates relatively low even as cases increase.
The federal government will start reimbursing a clinic in Providence, R.I., for evaluating patients who test positive and immediately prescribing Paxlovid to those eligible for it — the first of what the White House said would be a series of federally supported sites, with others set to open in New York and Illinois.
Federal workers are also being sent to state-run testing sites in Minnesota, transforming them into “test-to-treat” locations, the White House said. “Fundamentally, what we’re trying to do is get to a point where covid deaths are largely preventable, and I think we’re pretty close to there,” Dr. Ashish K. Jha, the White House covid-19 response coordinator, said in an interview Wednesday evening. “Deaths from this disease really should become increasingly rare.”
Eighteen major airlines, Federal Aviation Administration and Department of Transportation face possible lawsuits for imposing medical mandates | added May 27
The lawyer representing plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed earlier this month against Atlas Air said he plans to file similar lawsuits against the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and 18 major airlines over their covid-19 vaccine mandates.
California attorney John Pierce alleges the mandates “imposed by these agencies on the airlines’ employees infringed on their constitutional, religious, and medical liberties,” The Epoch Times reported. Pierce filed the first lawsuit on behalf of the Atlas Air employees and U.S. Freedom Flyers (USFF), an advocacy group opposing airline vaccine and mask mandates.
Atlas Air is one of the largest air cargo carriers in the aviation industry and the world’s largest operator of Boeing 747 aircraft. The lawsuit was filed May 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida with the participation of more than 100 plaintiffs, most of whom are unvaccinated pilots and flight attendants.
New York State to hand out ‘robot caretakers’ for roughly 800 elderly adults | added May 27
New York state is distributing robot caretakers to some 800 elderly adults in an effort to combat a burgeoning epidemic of loneliness, the New York State Office for the Aging announced in a press release on Wednesday.
Manufactured by Israeli company Intuition Robotics, the ElliQ bots being distributed to New Yorkers’ households are said to “foster independence and provide support for older adults through daily check-ins, assistance with wellness goals and physical activities, connection to family and friends, and more.”
The program is supposedly aimed at combating loneliness, which a growing body of scientific studies has shown has detrimental health effects as bad or worse than smoking and obesity. Noting the loneliness epidemic has only gotten worse with social distancing and other devastating government responses to covid-19, the press release hails ElliQ as more human-like than other “smart technologies,” describing how the robot “proactively suggests activities and initiates conversations” rather than simply responding to commands.
Senator Rick Scott proposes bill to stop WHO from imposing tyrannical medical mandates | added May 27
Today, Senator Rick Scott introduced a bill to ensure that the World Health Organization (WHO) cannot unilaterally impose public health restrictions on the United States and violate America’s national sovereignty.
The legislation comes as the World Health Assembly meets to consider a “pandemic treaty” that would aim to direct the public health decisions of U.S. states and localities, giving unprecedented power to the World Health Organization. Senator Rick Scott said, “The WHO’s radical ‘pandemic treaty’ is a dangerous globalist overreach.
The United States of America must never give more power to the WHO. The WHO is a puppet for Xi Jinping, controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, and helped Beijing cover up the origins of covid-19. We must quickly pass this bill to ensure that public health matters in the country remain in the hands of Americans, not globalist puppets working for Communist China.”
WHO says no need for monkeypox vax so long as isolation and contact tracing is used to contain spread | added May 27
World Health Organization (WHO) officials have said there is no need for mass vaccination campaigns against monkeypox but called for ramped-up efforts to contain its spread in non-endemic countries.
“We think if we put the right measures in place now we can contain it easily,” Sylvie Briand, WHO’s director for global infectious hazard preparedness, said on Friday. Early detection and isolation of cases, as well as contact tracing, were key to curtailing the virus, she told a technical briefing to member states at the UN health agency’s annual assembly in Geneva.
Member states should also share information about first-generation stockpiles of smallpox vaccines which can be effective against monkeypox, Briand said. “We don’t know exactly the number of doses available in the world and so that’s why we encourage countries to come to WHO and tell us what are their stockpiles,” she added. A slide on her presentation described global supplies as “very constrained”.
The installation of monkeypox mania | added May 27
Lock yourselves down inside your homes! Break out the masks and prophylactic face-shields! Switch off what’s left of your critical faculties and prepare yourselves to “follow the Science!”
Yes, that’s right, just as the survivors of The Simulated Apocalyptic Plague of 2020-2021 were crawling up out of their covid bunkers and starting to “build the world back better,” another biblical pestilence has apparently been unleashed on humanity! This time it’s the dreaded monkeypox, a viral zoonotic disease endemic to central and western Africa that circulates among giant pouched rats, squirrels, dormice, and other rodents and has been infecting humans for centuries, or millennia.
Monkeypox causes fever, headaches, muscle aches, and sometimes fluid-filled blisters, tends to resolve in two to four weeks, and thus poses absolutely zero threat to human civilization generally. The corporate media do not want to alarm us, but it is their duty as professional journalists to report that THE MONKEYPOX IS SPREADING LIKE WILDFIRE!

Our attorney was formally introduced on the NYS Assembly floor. She also met with additional Legislators who are in support of our lawsuit. We are gaining momentum!
We are looking for people to head-up an election integrity initiative. We want to join forces with a couple of groups that are already working to help make sure our upcoming elections are “clean”. This is a BIG election year in NYS. The governor and every single NYS Senate and Assembly seat are up for grabs. We have the opportunity to wipe the slate clean and elect patriots who value our Constitution and our freedoms. BUT we need to ensure the elections are “clean”.
Vaccines found inefficient for protection against long-term ‘covid’, according to researchers | added May 26
The covid vaccines, while holding up strong against hospitalization and death, offer little protection against long covid, according to research published Wednesday in the journal Nature Medicine.
The findings are disappointing, if not surprising, to researchers who were once hopeful that vaccination could significantly reduce the risk of long covid. Compared to an unvaccinated individual, the risk of long covid in a fully vaccinated individual was cut by only about 15 percent, the study found.
“The vaccines are miraculous at doing what they were designed to do” — that is, prevent hospitalization and death, said Dr. Ziyad Al-Aly, a clinical epidemiologist at Washington University in St. Louis and the lead author of the study. But they “offer very modest protection against long covid,” he said.
Eight year old suffers seizures after Pfizer shot, accused of “drug-induced hallucination” | added May 26
After 8-year-old Ryleigh received the Pfizer vax, she experienced seizures and fainting; when she was taken to the hospital, her condition was listed as “drug-induced hallucination” — even though she never did any drugs. And what’s worse, the hospital called child protective services (CPS) on her mother.
Fauci’s NIAID approved 1.8 million taxpayer dollars for puppy drug experiments, according to new documents | May 26
A division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) run by Dr. Anthony Fauci allocated $1,836,453 in taxpayer dollars to test an experimental hay fever drug on dogs, rats and mice, according to documents released Monday by the White Coat Waste Project.
The nonprofit organization, whose stated goal is to end taxpayer-funded experiments on animals, obtained the documents through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The FOIA documents show five separate dog experiments are planned — including tests on 6-month-old puppies. Some dogs could be force-fed large doses of the drug for months, the Washington Examiner reported. Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the division of the NIH that commissioned the experiments.
Pfizer CEO predicts ‘covid waves will be constant’ due to complacency and politics | added May 26
The world is likely to suffer from “constant waves” of covid-19, the CEO of Pfizer said Wednesday. Albert Bourla pointed to complacency around the virus, the politicization of the pandemic, and diminishing immunity from vaccines and prior infections, the Financial Times reported.
People are also growing tired of covid-19 safety regulations, said Bourla, who was speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where world leaders and members of the business elite are gathered for an annual summit.
While covid-19 cases are falling globally, they’ve been gradually rising in the US since early April, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. In the week that ended Sunday, the US reported 790,000 new cases, more than three times as many as were reported in the last week of March.
“Guaranteed Income Programs” launch in 40 U.S. cities as part of ‘smart pandemic response’ for low-income Americans | added May 26
The financial upheaval caused by the covid-19 pandemic for millions of Americans is spurring a rise in a form of charitable giving that has proved highly effective in helping people navigate calamity: Giving them money with no strings attached.
So-called guaranteed income programs have launched in 40 cities across the U.S. under which individuals and families living near the poverty threshold receive monthly stipends that they can spend however they want.
“The pandemic really showed people the existing economic arrangement was just not enough,” said Michael Tubbs, formerly the mayor of Stockton, California, and founder of Mayors for a Guaranteed Income. “With folks not being able to get to work because their businesses were shut down, it showed a guaranteed income is a form of economic resilience and a smart pandemic response.”
In memory of all those who “died suddenly” in Uganda, Ghana, Israel, Bahrain and Russia | added May 26
A movie star in Ghana, a hotelier in Uganda, a 10-year-old Israeli boy, a popular Bahraini chef, and, in Russia, two artists, a hospital’s chief doctor, a wrestling champion, and all too many more.
UGANDA — Maria Flo Hotel proprietor found dead in hotel. May 22, 2022 Business. Masaka, Uganda – A prominent businessman in Masaka City, Atanansi Bazzeketta is dead. Bazzeketta, the proprietor of Maria Flo Hotel, one of the traditional hotels Masaka town and the sub region, was found dead in one of his hotels.
Bazzeketta’s body was discovered on Saturday morning in one of the rooms at Maria Flo Hotel after his staff got concerned that he was not getting out of the room and not picking phone calls. Ivan Nakibinge, the Hotel Manager says his boss suddenly died in his sleep, and the body was recovered after they broke into his hotel room.
Jerusalem: Mandatory isolation no longer enforced for those living with ‘covid’ positive person | added May 26
People living in the same space as a person who has tested positive for covid-19 will no longer be required to isolate, according to a Wednesday morning Knesset Health Committee announcement.
The Health Committee, headed by acting chairman MK Elina Bardach-Yalov (Yisrael Beytenu), approved the amendment first introduced last Monday removing the isolation requirement for people living with covid-19 positive people.
The decision applies to anyone living with a covid-19 patient, regardless of whether or not they themselves have previously been infected or whether or not they are vaccinated. However, in case of close contact with a severe strain of the disease, or if they work or frequent a place considered high risk (such as a hospital or healthcare environment) they might still be required to isolate.
The hypocrisy that is ‘covid’.
Health officials speculate about the cause of mysterious liver damage cases in children around the world | added May 25
Editor’s Note: Seriously? Health officials are baffled by mysterious liver damage in children around the world? How ignorant do they believe the masses are? The liver is a master detoxification organ of the body that filters out toxins found in our environment. Is it such a wonder they are damaged in children who, by the way, receive liver cells from the mother in the womb? This damage is the result of decades of genetic material being passed down over the generations and it’s time we stop putting a mask on everything. Check out Medical Medium liver saving protocols that have initiated the healing process for millions of people around the world. — mmd
NEW YORK (AP) — Health officials remain perplexed by mysterious cases of severe liver damage in hundreds of young children around the world.
The best available evidence points to a fairly common stomach bug that isn’t known to cause liver problems in otherwise healthy kids. That virus was detected in the the blood of stricken children but — oddly — it has not been found in their diseased livers. “There’s a lot of things that don’t make sense,” said Eric Kremer, a virus researcher at the Institute of Molecular Genetics of Montpellier, in France.
As health officials in more than a dozen countries look into the mystery, they are asking: — Has there been some surge in the stomach bug — called adenovirus 41 — that is causing more cases of a previously undetected problem? — Are children more susceptible due to pandemic-related lockdowns that sheltered them from the viruses kids usually experience?
Monkeypox likely spread by sex at recent raves in Europe, says WHO adviser | added May 25
LONDON (AP) — A leading adviser to the World Health Organization described the unprecedented outbreak of monkeypox in developed countries as “a random event” that appears to have been caused by sexual activity at two recent raves in Europe.
Dr. David Heymann, who formerly headed WHO’s emergencies department, told The Associated Press that the leading theory to explain the spread of the disease was sexual transmission at raves held in Spain and Belgium. Monkeypox has not previously triggered widespread outbreaks beyond Africa, where it is endemic in animals.
“We know monkeypox can spread when there is close contact with the lesions of someone who is infected, and it looks like sexual contact has now amplified that transmission,” said Heymann.
CDC claims one in five ‘covid’ survivors under 65 years may experience long term symptoms | added May 25
One in five adult covid survivors under the age of 65 in the United States has experienced at least one health condition that could be considered long covid, according to a large new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Among patients 65 and older, the number is even higher: one in four.
In an indication of how seriously the federal health agency views the problem of long covid, the authors of the study — members of the C.D.C.’s Covid-19 Emergency Response Team — recommended “routine assessment for post-covid conditions among persons who survive covid-19.”
Long covid is the term used to describe an array of symptoms that can last for months or longer after the initial coronavirus infection. The researchers identified post-covid health problems in many different organ systems, including the heart, lungs and kidneys. Other issues involved blood circulation, the musculoskeletal system and the endocrine system; gastrointestinal conditions, neurological problems and psychiatric symptoms were also identified in the study.
CDC recommends re-isolation should patients experience ‘covid’ relapse symptoms after taking Pfizer’s drug Paxlovid | added May 25
Patients who experience recurrence of covid-19 symptoms after completing treatment with Pfizer’s (PFE.N) drug Paxlovid should isolate again for five days, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in an advisory issued on Tuesday.
Dozens of individuals have reported rebounding covid symptoms on social media or to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration after taking Paxlovid, but Pfizer suggests the experience is rare. A recent rise in covid cases has driven up use of therapeutics in the country.
The CDC said in its advisory that case reports suggest that recurrence results in mild symptoms, and there have been no reports of severe disease so far. The agency still continues to recommend the oral antiviral drug as a treatment, despite the possibility of recurrences.
Filthy industrial farms, not wild birds to blame for avian flu EA H5N1 | added May 25
Editor’s Note: We know that scientists have been using eggs to grow whatever so-called ‘virus’ and/or the vaccine to combat the ‘virus’ for years now. When animals live in filth and are subjected to numerous antibiotics and immoral conditions, how can we not expect to see disease? — mmd
We’re in the midst of the largest-ever outbreak in North America. But it’s not covid-19. And it’s not monkeypox. It’s avian influenza EA H5N1. This highly pathogenic virus, news outlets across the U.S. and around the world report, is the deadliest seen in domestic birds in the last seven years in America — and may well be the worst ever documented in wild birds.
Since the start of 2022, avian influenza EA H5N1 has broken out in at least 30 U.S. states and many other countries. More than 37 million birds have died in the U.S. alone, PBS NewsHour reported earlier this month.
The virus is affecting aquatic birds, such as gulls, terns and shorebirds; wild waterfowl, such as ducks, geese and swans; and raptors, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
U.S. Navy desertions soar amid mental health crisis in the service | added May 25
A troubling new statistic shows U.S. Navy desertions are soaring and may point to an even more significant issue of an emerging mental health crisis in the service.
NBC News reports the Navy has 342,000 active sailors. In 2021, there were 157 deserters, compared with 98 in 2020 and 63 in 2019. The total number of deserters who remain at large last year increased to 166 from 119 in 2019. Most of them were under the age of 25.
An expert who reviewed the federal statistics obtained by NBC described the trend as shocking. Navy officials couldn’t explain what was causing the desertion rate to skyrocket. They pointed to “many different stressors” in the service.
Germany to loosen ‘covid’ entry requirements over the busy summer traveling season | added May 25
Editor’s Note: So, let me get this straight. ‘Covid’ is on a summer vacation away from Germany until end of August? I wonder where it will spend the time? — mmd
BERLIN — Germany’s health minister says the government plans to suspend a pandemic rule requiring people to show proof of vaccination, a negative test result or recent recovery from covid-19 to enter the country over the summer.
Health Minister Karl Lauterbach told the Funke newspaper group in comments published Wednesday that the rule, which applies to everyone age 12 and above regardless of where they are traveling from, will be suspended from June 1 to the end of August.
Germany has not had any countries on its list of “high-risk areas” for the coronavirus since early March. Confirmed coronavirus case numbers have declined steadily in Germany in recent weeks, and most restrictions have been lifted.
National Health Service just edited their monkeypox description to instill more fear | added May 25
A few days ago the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) edited their Monkeypox page to alter the narrative in a few key ways. Firstly, they removed a paragraph from the “How do you get Monkeypox?” section.
Up until a few days ago, according to archived links, the Monkeypox page said this, regarding person-to-person transmission: It’s very uncommon to get monkeypox from a person with the infection because it does not spread easily between people.
…this has now been totally removed. Secondly, they’ve removed this paragraph, which was present up until at least November of 2021 (and maybe much more recently, there are no archives between November and May): [Monkeypox] is usually a mild illness that will get better on its own without treatment. Some people can develop more serious symptoms, so patients with monkeypox in the UK are cared for in specialist hospitals.
U.S. in the process of releasing monkeypox vaccine stockpile for ‘high risk’ people | added May 25
The United States is responding to a request for the release of monkeypox vaccine from the nation’s Strategic National Stockpile as a global outbreak of cases is under investigation. There is one confirmed case of monkeypox and four suspected cases in the United States, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday.
“I can report that there has been a request for release of the Jynneos vaccine from the National Stockpile for some of the high-risk contacts of some of the early patients, so that is actively happening right now,” Dr. Jennifer McQuiston, deputy director of the Division of High Consequence Pathogens and Pathology within the CDC’s National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, said Monday.
McQuiston said the United States has a “good stock” of vaccine because it has been preparing for the possibility of needing to use doses for smallpox.
The word influenza originated from the world influence, because the disease was said to be influenced by the stars.
Here’s what we have on monkeypox, the latest thing you’re supposed to freak out about | updated May 23
By Eric F. Coppolino
Research by Cindy Tice Ragusa
We are tracking the “monkeypox” situation that emerged last week, seemingly out of nowhere. It has not; it has a long history. We’re following both mainstream news developments, as well as our reliable sources, and reaching out to our scientific contacts for specific information related to the nature of the test.
The claim of “viral spread” of monkeypox is really the spread of the PCR “test,” which generates positives out of thin air. The “virus” will “spread” as fast as the PCR codes can be set up. However, if you look at the scientific literature, you find there is no evidence of human to human transmission. There is no sequence of viral isolate.
This story emerged May 7, just as New York was bringing back “mask” recommendations. Nobody has been talking lockdown, yet; we wonder if that much terror or sense of phony civic duty could be mustered up a second time. However, they are trying to ruin the first seemingly normal summer festival scene since 2019.
We’ve learned something covering “covid” for two years, which includes what angles to look for, who we can rely on for accurate information (and who we cannot).
One novelty of this story is that it’s being associated with gay and bisexual men. Well, that’s not really a novelty — that claim was last made about the “human immunodeficiency virus” in the early 1980s. In hindsight, that was obvious homophobia. Assuming they exist, viruses don’t discriminate based on sexual orientation, nor do they stop at the end of a Zip code (as did claimed HIV infections).
The new gay virus reminds me of The Onion‘s video about the world’s first openly-gay race horse (whom you would never know was gay), but it’s not as funny. Did monkeypox come from…a gay monkey?
What is also not funny is people falling for the same lie two or three times. Young people are being told to stay away from music festivals this summer to “stop the spread.”
Monkeypox is a production of Gates, the World Health Organization (WHO), and all the people who brought you Event 201. As Cindy Ragusa (who researched this entire presentation) succinctly put it, “They must live in a bubble where they just do whatever they want. It’s got $$$$ printed all over it, so they can’t see out, and they think we’re all too dumb for it to matter.”
That is probably true. But maybe not for you. If you don’t want to terrify yourself, but rather be informed, let’s start with two helpful news sources.
Polly documents an Event 201-like monkeypox pandemic planning event in 2021. In many years of covering terrorist attacks and mass shootings, one reliable giveaway for a false flag incident is the drill or planning event ahead of, or concurrently with, the claimed incident.
Please Watch the Video: Amazing Polly Documents the History of Monkeypox and the 2021 Planning Event
Polly St. George in Canada is someone we consider an impeccable investigative journalist – working out of her spare room. I have never seen a factual error or issue with her analysis.
She has pulled together the history of monkeypox and its associated “gain of function” or “dual purpose” research — that is, the claim of viral enhancement, usually for military use.
This was going on for years with bat coronaviruses — it was big business, as we have documented in our chronology — and the existence of these bioweapon programs clouds the issues: is the virus claim real, or not? Is it lab-released, or is it natural? Note that the mere potential for a lab release argues that the virus is a real threat. (We have looked carefully and see no evidence for a lab release of the claimed “SARS-CoV-2” virus.
In her report, Polly documents an Event 201-like monkeypox pandemic planning event in 2021. In many years of covering terrorist attacks and mass shootings, one reliable giveaway for a false flag incident is the drill or planning event ahead of, or concurrently with, the claimed incident.
Had I known about Event 201 at the outset of the “covid” crisis, I would have been much more skeptical. Event 201, sponsored by Gates, the World Economic Forum and Johns Hopkins Health Security Center, drilled the first-ever zoonotic coronavirus pandemic just eight weeks ahead of a “real” one breaking out.
One of the signs that marked the Covid ‘pandemic’ as a psy-op from an early stage was the sheer speed with which the hysteria spread. Far from learning from their mistakes, the powers-that-be have decided to go even faster this time.
Coverage from Off-Guardian
We have come to trust and admire Off-Guardian in the UK as another impeccable source. They just published a roundup story on the issue.
“To be clear, ‘monkeypox’ (whatever that even means in this context), is NOT a Russian bio-weapon. It’s not a Western bio-weapon either. Or Chinese bio-weapon. It’s just another scare story. And a rushed, half-hearted one at that.
“One of the signs that marked the covid ‘pandemic’ as a psy-op from an early stage was the sheer speed with which the hysteria spread. Far from learning from their mistakes, the powers-that-be have decided to go even faster this time.
“Despite ‘cases’ numbering barely in the dozens, the World Health Organization has called an emergency meeting, a strange thing to do when their annual Assembly starts literally tomorrow. But I guess when your launching a new product you need to do everything you can to get the hype going.
“Despite just two “cases” in the entire United States (and indeed the fact they still don’t work), New York is bringing back mask recommendations.”
Now, once you’ve watched Polly and read OffGuardian, you’re ready for mainstream terrorist propaganda…to wit. Let’s begin with Misfortune.
The lone U.S. case was confirmed in an adult male who had recently traveled to Canada, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health said in a news release. The department is completing contact tracing, and the man is hospitalized in good condition, the agency said.
Also late Wednesday, the CDC informed Fortune that the United Kingdom had notified the U.S. of eight individuals who may have been seated near an infected U.K. traveler when they flew from Nigeria to London from May 3-4. Of the eight, one is no longer in the U.S. and another was not a contact, the health agency said.
“The remaining six are being monitored by their respective state health departments,” the CDC said in a statement. “None of these six travel contacts have monkeypox symptoms, and their risk of infection is very low.”
The order will convert existing smallpox vaccines, which are also effective against monkeypox, into freeze-dried versions, which have a longer shelf life. The converted vaccines will be manufactured in 2023 and 2024, the company says.
Bavarian Nordic has worked with the U.S. government since 2003 to develop, manufacture and supply smallpox vaccines. To date, it says, it has supplied nearly 30 million doses to the Department of Health and Human Services. The U.S. isn’t the only country stocking up on the vaccine. On Thursday, Bavarian Nordic said an unidentified European country had secured a contract to obtain the vaccine.
Clinicians should consider a diagnosis of monkeypox in people who present with an otherwise unexplained rash and 1) traveled, in the last 30 days, to a country that has recently had confirmed or suspected cases of monkeypox 2) report contact with a person or people with confirmed or suspected monkeypox, or 3) is a man who reports sexual contact with other men.
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) today confirmed a single case of monkeypox virus infection in an adult male with recent travel to Canada. Initial testing was completed late Tuesday at the State Public Health Laboratory in Jamaica Plain and confirmatory testing was completed today at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
DPH is working closely with the CDC, relevant local boards of health, and the patient’s health care providers to identify individuals who may have been in contact with the patient while he was infectious. This contact tracing approach is the most appropriate given the nature and transmission of the virus. The case poses no risk to the public, and the individual is hospitalized and in good condition.
The case is the first to surface in the US this year and comes on the heels of an alert by the Spanish authorities of a potential outbreak of the virus among 23 people in Madrid. While typically spread by respiratory transmission, a spokesperson for Madrid’s regional health department said the local outbreak was driven by “fluid contact,” noting that eight of the suspected cases were found in gay men.
Around 20 suspected cases of monkeypox also surfaced among young Portuguese men in and around Lisbon this week, and a number of similar cases have been confirmed in the UK. Of the seven UK cases confirmed as of Monday, four of the most recent were in gay or bisexual men, and the first involved a person who had recently been to Nigeria, where the infection was likely contracted.
Health ministry says cases yet to be confirmed and come after the viral infection detected in UK and Portugal.
Health authorities in Spain have issued an alert over a possible outbreak of monkeypox after 23 people showed symptoms compatible with the viral infection, which has already been detected in the UK and Portugal. The health ministry cautioned that the suspected cases – all in the Madrid region – had yet to be confirmed, but said a nationwide alert had been issued “to guarantee a swift, coordinated and timely response”.
Madrid’s regional health department said the suspected cases were being analysed by the National Microbiology Centre to obtain a definitive diagnosis. “Generally speaking, monkeypox is spread by respiratory transmission, but the characteristics of the 23 suspected cases point towards transmission through mucus during sexual relations,” it said in a statement.
Eight countries in Europe, including Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK, have reported cases. The WHO said most are mild, but warned the disease can be more severe, especially in young children, pregnant women, and individuals who are immunocompromised.
Monkeypox cases in the UK have more than doubled, with 11 more announced today. It brings the total number reported in the country to 20 – although there are concerns many cases are going undetected.
Confirming the news, Health Secretary Sajid Javid said: “This morning I updated G7 health ministers on what we know so far. “Most cases are mild, and I can confirm we have procured further doses of vaccines that are effective against monkeypox.”
Introduction to monkeypox with an overview and resources | added May 24
Since I figured you were wondering, we’ve pulled together an overview of the monkeypox issue. First, a question: before the past week or so, had you ever heard of this? I had not. I guess there is a “pox” for everything and everyone, but news of the monkey edition had not reached my news desk.
In 26 months of covering this stuff seven days a week, we have developed a short list of very reliable sources, all of whom are contributing to our coverage. The commercial media is pushing this hard and fast. Belgium is said to have imposed a quarantine. One distinctive angle to the monkeypox scenario is that the World Health Organization is spreading the story that this started at a rave in Belgium — therefore, beware of sexual contact, and especially with gay and bisexual men. Really? Again? That is so 1983.
There was an Associated Press story about this today. This version of events is absurd on its face. Raves are not sex parties, and why single out men? We have prepared an overall summary of the issues, though we have new information since we published this Sunday.
Discussion: Did the DOD commit fraud? An interview with Matthew Crawford | added May 24
This story is about my conversation with Mathew Crawford, whom I had the pleasure of interviewing for my podcast. Mathew, a talented “numbers guy” and a very original, soulful thinker whom I love to read, has looked into very obscure DoD medical reports and discovered what potentially looks like a medical data fraud by the DoD.
If Mathew’s theory is correct, the most logical explanation for quietly changing historical data would be an attempt to cover up vaccine injury in the military. In other words, a tragedy and a scandal.
The plot is very convoluted. It took me some reading and a long conversation with Mathew to understand it. Once I got it, it all started to make sense, so I am breaking it down for simplicity. (Note: Mathew’s discovery adds a crazy twist to the whistleblower data that came out in relation to Tom Renz’s DoD lawsuit.)
Airline pilot suffers cardiac arrest after landing, believes it was connected to mandatory J&J ‘covid’ shot | added May 24
Robert Snow, a pilot for American Airlines, one of the top 3 largest airlines in the country, has 31 years of commercial airline experience and additionally seven years of experience as a U.S. Air Force pilot.
Snow says that he might not be able to fly again after he suffered a cardiac arrest only 6 or 7 minutes after landing a plane he piloted from Denver to Dallas Fort Worth (DFW). He still had two more flights scheduled on April 9.
He believes that his cardiac arrest is connected to the Johnson and Johnson COVID vaccine he was forced to take in order to keep his job on Nov. 4, 2021, even though he already had natural immunity from previously contracting the virus. Dr. Peter McCullough, a world-renowned cardiologist, told Newsmax that Snow’s case fits a “pattern.” “There is no other explanation,” McCullough said about Snow’s case since Snow has no coronary disease.
The Freedom Convoy and the collapse of Canadian liberalism | added May 24
“At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to say this, that or the other, but it is “not done” to say it, just as in mid-Victorian times it was “not done” to mention trousers in the presence of a lady. Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness. A genuinely unfashionable opinion is almost never given a fair hearing, either in the popular press or in highbrow periodicals.” — George Orwell, “Freedom of the Press”
Recently, a friend told me she’d taken part in a webinar conducted by the Council of Canadians. The webinar included First Nations people speaking about RCMP mistreatment of indigenous peoples on reserve. It was contrasted with the peaceful disbursement of freedom convoy protesters in Ottawa on February 18th.
The webinar narrative was partially true, likely informed by mainstream news reports. RCMP policing among First Nations people needs to be repaired. But, the Trucker Freedom Convoy in Ottawa wasn’t broken up peacefully. Just ask Candice “Candy” Sero.
World Health Organization conducted a monkeypox pandemic simulation in March 2021 | added May 24
Editor’s Note: Let’s not forget the WHO also coducted a ‘covid’ simulation before the ‘pandemic’ hit. Watch here how the plandemic was facilitated with eerie similiarities of exactly what happened (and is still happening) in 2020. — mmd
The World Health Organization (WHO) on Friday held an emergency meeting to discuss the outbreak of monkeypox after more than 100 cases were reported across 12 countries.
Days before the WHO convened, the Biden administration placed a $119 million order for monkeypox vaccines after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed six people in the U.S. were being monitored for the viral infection, and one person had tested positive.
Belgium on Sunday became the first country to introduce a compulsory 21-day quarantine for monkeypox patients after reporting four cases of the disease in the last week, Politico reported. The 100 newly reported cases, or suspected cases, garnered attention because many of them do not appear to be linked to travel to Africa, where in some regions, monkeypox is endemic.
‘Covid’ minted new billionaires nearly every day, according to a recent analysis | added May 24
The covid-19 pandemic has been good for the wallets of the wealthy. Some 573 people have joined the billionaire ranks since 2020, bringing the worldwide total to 2,668, according to an analysis released by Oxfam on Sunday.
That means a new billionaire was minted about every 30 hours, on average, so far during the pandemic. The report, which draws on data compiled by Forbes, looks at the rise of inequality over the past two years. It is timed to coincide with the kickoff of the annual World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, a gathering of some of the wealthiest people and world leaders.
Billionaires have seen their total net worth soar by $3.8 trillion, or 42%, to $12.7 trillion during the pandemic. A large part of the increase has been fueled by strong gains in the stock markets, which was aided by governments injecting money into the global economy to soften the financial blow of the coronavirus.
More fear mongering as third case of suspected monkeypox arrives in Florida | added May 24
A third case of monkeypox may have been found in the United States – with health authorities in Florida running tests on a patient who they believe may have contracted the virus.
The case in Broward County, Florida, is ‘related to international travel,’ the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Florida Department of Health said in a statement on Sunday. They added that ‘the person remains isolated’ near Fort Lauderdale.
The results of tests conducted by the CDC are expected soon. No other cases have been identified in the state, the release said. The first monkeypox case in the United States was reported in Massachusetts on May 18. The following day, the second case was reported – in New York City.
D.C. Attorney General sues Mark Zuckerberg over failure to protect Facebook users’ privacy | added May 24
D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine on Monday announced he is suing Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook’s parent company Meta, for failing to protect Facebook users during the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal.
Zuckerberg so far has avoided facing personal legal repercussions over his involvement in various Facebook scandals. The lawsuit, filed in D.C. Superior Court, alleges that Zuckerberg oversaw discussions that allowed Trump-aligned consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica to improperly obtain the personal information of tens of millions of Facebook users.
“The evidence shows Mr. Zuckerberg was personally involved in Facebook’s failure to protect the privacy and data of its users leading directly to the Cambridge Analytica incident,” Racine said in a statement. “This unprecedented security breach exposed tens of millions of Americans’ personal information, and Mr. Zuckerberg’s policies enabled a multi-year effort to mislead users about the extent of Facebook’s wrongful conduct.”
Airbnb quits China rentals as “zero-covid policy” continues with enforced medical mandates | added May 24
All listings for homes and experiences in the country will be removed from the company’s website by summer, a source familiar with the matter told the BBC.
Stays within China made up only 1% of Airbnb’s revenue over the last few years. The company is expected to instead focus on Chinese residents traveling abroad to other destinations. Before the pandemic, Chinese travellers heading abroad had tripled in less than a decade, reaching 155 million journeys in 2019, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organisation.

Belgium becomes first country to enforce compulsory 21 day ‘monkeypox’ quarantine | added May 23
Belgium has become the first country to introduce a compulsory 21-day monkeypox quarantine – as 14 countries now confirm outbreaks o f the viral disease and doctors warn of a ‘significant rise’ in UK cases.
Those who contract the virus will now have to self-isolate for three weeks, Belgian health authorities have said, after three cases were recorded in the country. The infections, the first of which was recorded on Friday, are all linked to a festival in the port city of Antwerp.
It comes as doctors have warned that the UK faces a ‘significant’ rise in infections and the government’s response is ‘critical’ in containing its spread. Dr Claire Dewsnap, president of the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV, has also said the outbreak could have a ‘massive impact’ on access to sexual health services in Britain. It comes as Dr Susan Hopkins, a chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, today also warned that monkeypox is spreading through community transmission in the UK with more cases being detected daily.
WHO attempts to explain the benefits of contact tracing and surveillance for ‘monkeypox’ virus | added May 23
Editor’s Note: The claim of “viral spread” of monkeypox is really the spread of the PCR “test,” which generates positives out of thin air. The “virus” will “spread” as fast as the PCR codes can be set up. However, if you look at the scientific literature, you find there is no evidence of human to human transmission. There is no sequence of viral isolate. — efc
Since 13 May 2022, cases of monkeypox have been reported to WHO from 12 Member States that are not endemic for monkeypox virus, across three WHO regions. Epidemiological investigations are ongoing, however, reported cases thus far have no established travel links to endemic areas. Based on currently available information, cases have mainly but not exclusively been identified amongst men who have sex with men (MSM) seeking care in primary care and sexual health clinics.
The objective of this Disease Outbreak News is to raise awareness, inform readiness and response efforts, and provide technical guidance for immediate recommended actions.
The situation is evolving and WHO expects there will be more cases of monkeypox identified as surveillance expands in non-endemic countries. Immediate actions focus on informing those who may be most at risk for monkeypox infection with accurate information, in order to stop further spread.
Pharma giants, Pfizer and BioNTech claim three ‘covid’ drug shots produce strong immune response in children ages six months to five years | added May 23
Three child-size doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech covid-19 vaccine appeared to be safe and showed a strong immune response in children ages 6 months to 5 years, the companies said Monday. The vaccine makers said they will finish submitting the trial data to the US Food and Drug Administration this week.
The Phase 2/3 trial included 1,678 children who received a third dose during the period when the omicron coronavirus variant dominated. Antibody levels tested one month after the third dose showed the vaccine produced a similar immune response as two doses in 16-to-25 year-olds, the companies said in a news release. The data has not yet been peer-reviewed or published.
Midtrial results found vaccine efficacy of 80.3% against symptomatic covid-19 in this youngest age group. The companies identified 10 symptomatic cases at least seven days after the third dose. However, the efficacy rate won’t be finalized until at least 21 symptomatic cases are found in the vaccine group and then compared with the number of symptomatic cases in the placebo group.

In this video, after an 8-minute trailer for Plandemic 3, Dr. Buttar launches into a harrowing prediction, based on tips from trusted insiders, of what’s to come.
Since he’s been right so far (early on, he took a world of heat for doubting that “the virus” had passed naturally from bats to humans), we should listen carefully to what he’s saying now: that the “vaccines” contain sleeper cells, set to be awakened (sometime this year, he estimates) by three 60-second 5G signals, which will activate the Marburg virus, and other pathogens that will kill “vaccinated” people by the millions, whereupon the WHO and CDC will move to “save” the rest of us by taking over totally and (they intend) forever.
What to do? Having long shouted himself hoarse to warn as many people as might hear him not to get injected, as the toll of “vaccination” keeps on spiking, Dr. Buttar is by now too bitter to waste any further tears on those who got the jab, and is focusing instead on the “unvaccinated,” and the urgent need for them to keep their immune systems strong, since they are at far less risk than those who have rolled up their sleeves as ordered.
“The Great Fascist” reset: A conversation with journalist and philosopher, Paul Cudenec | added May 23
This story is about my conversation with a very talented journalist, writer, and philosopher Paul Cudenec, aka Winter Oak, who currently lives in France. I became familiar with Paul’s work about two years ago when both of us were writing about the Great Reset, and I have felt great camaraderie ever since (with Paul, not with Klaus Schwab … just thought I’d clarify 🙂
Paul has written a great number of superbly extensive articles about the Great Reset, Global Shapers, Prince Charles, and so many other things. If you start anywhere on his website, you can stay there for days! Recently, he published a book called “Fascism Rebranded” and made the PDF available for free. You can also find his work on Nevermore Media.
An interesting fact: Paul is an anarchist. I am not. And yet our conclusions about what’s going on today are very similar, and we agree on a great number of things.

President Joe Biden claimed Sunday that “everybody” should be concerned about an increase of monkeypox cases in Europe and the United States, although the president admitted that he hasn’t received information from his advisers on the disease yet.
Speaking to reporters before leaving for Japan and South Korea, Biden said that his health advisers “haven’t told me the level of exposure yet, but it is something that everybody should be concerned about,” adding, “We’re working on it hard to figure out what we do and what vaccine, if any, may be available for it.”
“But it is a concern in the sense that if it were to spread, it’s consequential. That’s all they have told me,” Biden continued. As of May 21, more than 80 cases of monkeypox have been reported in Australia, the United States, Canada, and Europe. In a statement the day before, the World Health Organization (WHO) said it is working to investigate another 50 suspected cases, warning that more could be reported in the near future.
FDA officials plan to decide on new ‘covid’ inoculation designs by early July | added May 23
Federal regulators are expected to decide on a new covid-19 vaccine design in early July, which would allow vaccine companies to begin production for rollout this fall and winter, a top official told ABC News.
Food and Drug Administration vaccine chief Dr. Peter Marks said the decision would likely come from the FDA shortly after its advisory committee meets on June 28 to review data from the vaccine companies about the versions of next-generation vaccines they’re testing.
The FDA will then make a decision on which type of vaccine the companies should go ahead with, an estimation they’ll base on what could offer the best protection even in the face of new variants this fall and winter, similar to how the flu vaccine is concocted ahead of flu season.

Dozens of Georgians exposed to toxic chemical sodium azide in at home ‘covid’ tests | added May 21
The covid-19 test kit you may have in your home likely contains a toxic chemical. The Georgia Poison Center tells Channel 2 Action News in recent months, they’ve taken dozens of calls on children and adults accidentally exposed to the substance. The government has sent out hundreds of millions of free covid test kits, which are also widely available in stores. It’s a quick 15-minute nasal swab test to check if you’ve got covid.
But in most tests, the active ingredient that helps determine the result is sodium azide, a toxic chemical. Channel 2′s Tom Regan talked to a mother who said she is careful doing tests, especially with her kids. “They know not to touch me when I’m doing a covid test. That’s serious business,” said Erin Dawson, a mother of two.
“This product can be dangerous. In some cases, if enough is ingested, it can cause your blood pressure to drop… The other thing we know, sodium azide can irritate the gut, irritate the stomach,” said Dr. Gaylord Lopez, executive director of the Georgia Poison Center. He said in recent months, they’ve handled dozens of calls of accidental ingestion of sodium azide.
Latest VAERS data shows new ‘covid’ shot-related deaths and injuries while CDC urges another jab | added May 21
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released new data showing a total of 1,268,008 reports of adverse events following covid-19 vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 13, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S. The data included a total of 28,141 reports of deaths — an increase of 173 over the previous week — and 230,364 serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 1,887 compared with the previous week. There were 6,859 additional total adverse events reported to VAERS over the previous week.
Excluding “foreign reports” to VAERS, 817,538 adverse events, including 12,961 deaths and 82,544 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 13, 2022. Foreign reports are reports foreign subsidiaries send to U.S. vaccine manufacturers. Under U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, if a manufacturer is notified of a foreign case report that describes an event that is both serious and does not appear on the product’s labeling, the manufacturer is required to submit the report to VAERS.
Messenger RNA ‘covid’ shots significantly linked to deadly blood clots, shows major new study | added May 21
Blood-clotting condition cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT), which can cause serious neurological damage, is significantly associated with mRNA covid vaccination, a major study in leading medical journal Vaccines has found. The research team analysed 1,154,023 adverse event reports from more than 130 countries logged with VigiBase, the World Health Organisation’s global deduplicated database, and found a “potential safety signal for CVT occurrence after covid-19 mRNA vaccination”.
The authors note many reports were in younger people and the conditions were serious: “CVTs were commonly reported in patients aged 18-44 and 45-64 years, more frequently in women, and mainly in Europe and America… More than 90% of the patients were in serious condition, and 33% did not recover or died.”
The researchers take into account under-reporting to produce estimates of increased risk above a baseline: around 3.5 times greater risk for mRNA vaccines and seven times greater risk for AstraZeneca. This means the CVT risk from mRNA vaccines, while high, is around half that of AstraZeneca.

A look at how ‘covid’ death numbers are misleading and inaccurate | added May 21
It’s difficult to comprehend and convey the toll of the coronavirus pandemic, so it may not be surprising that there’s no single way that federal agencies, newsrooms or universities have arrived at such an immense number as one million known U.S. coronavirus deaths.
Even the White House has acknowledged that there was no consensus method for tallying coronavirus data. When Jen Psaki, then Biden’s press secretary, was asked last week how the administration would recognize the milestone, she said in part that “We look at the C.D.C. data and the Johns Hopkins data, and different news organizations evaluate it differently.”
Two days later, President Biden anticipated the moment at his second covid-19 summit. “We mark a tragic milestone here in the United States: one million covid deaths, one million empty chairs around the family dinner table — each irreplaceable,” Mr. Biden told the summit, which was held virtually. That came more than a week after NBC News said the mark had been reached, but before some other tallies had crossed the threshold, including that of The New York Times, which did so on Thursday.
CDC urges another ‘covid’ booster shot for elderly and immune compromised adults | added May 21
Following the nation’s latest covid-19 resurgence, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced on Thursday that it is “strengthening” its recommendation for Americans over the age of 12 who are immunocompromised, and those over the age of 50, to receive their second booster shot.
“Over the past month we have seen steady increases in cases, with a steep and substantial increase in hospitalizations for older Americans. While older Americans have the highest coverage of any age group of first booster doses, most older Americans received their last dose (either their primary series or their first booster dose) many months ago, leaving many who are vulnerable without the protection they may need to prevent severe disease, hospitalization, and death,” the CDC wrote.
“Whether it is your first booster, or your second, if you haven’t had a vaccine dose since the beginning of December 2021 and you are eligible, now is the time to get one,” officials said. During the meeting of the CDC’s independent advisory committee for immunization recommendations on Thursday, CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky also re-emphasized the importance of older Americans getting boosted, given concerns over waning immunity amid the nation’s latest covid-19 surge.
Mainstream media pushes ‘covid’ drug shot as a political issue | added May 21
Even with widely available vaccines and newly effective treatments, residents of counties that went heavily for Donald Trump in the last presidential election are more than twice as likely to die from covid-19 than those that live in areas that went for President Biden. That’s according to a newly-updated analysis from NPR, examining how partisanship and misinformation are shaping the pandemic.
NPR examined covid deaths per 100,000 people in roughly 3,000 counties across the U.S. from May 2021, the point at which most Americans could find a vaccine if they wanted one. Those living in counties that voted 60% or higher for Trump in November 2020 had 2.26 times the death rate of those that went by the same margin for Biden. Counties with a higher share of Trump votes had even higher mortality rates.
The scale of the preventable loss of life is staggering. According to a recent analysis by Brown University, nearly 320,000 lives nationwide could have been saved if more people had chosen to get vaccinated. The Brown analysis also shows a partisan split in how those preventable deaths are distributed. States that went most heavily for Trump – including Wyoming and West Virginia – have among the highest rates of preventable deaths, while states that voted heavily for Biden – such as Massachusetts and Vermont – had among the lowest.

N.Y. records ‘covid’ hospitalizations at a ‘three month high’ as ‘fifth wave’ intensifies | added May 20
New York state covid hospitalizations are now nearing 3,000, more than doubling in the last month as an omicron subvariant believed to be the most transmissible strain yet fuels soaring infection rates across the country, health department data shows.
The statewide admission total stands at 2,705 as of Gov. Kathy Hochul’s latest report, the highest number since Feb. 18, when the total was 2,745. It was just earlier in May that hospitalizations topped the 2,000 mark for the first time since late February. More than half (52.5%) of patients currently hospitalized for covid across the Empire State, though, didn’t have that diagnosis listed as a primary reason for admission, which Hochul’s office says suggests those cases are typically milder.
While the current hospitalization count is less than five times what it was at omicron’s January peak — and a shred of the nearly 19,000 hospitalized with covid across the state at the height of the pandemic in April 2020, public health and elected officials are closely monitoring the data even as they continue to stress there’s no cause for alarm.
California cardiologist reports ‘covid’ vax blood clot issues maybe in the hundreds, heart complications in the thousands | added May 20
Dr. Sanjay Verma, an adult cardiologist practicing in Coachella Valley, California, sees a few hundred patients a month, and since last summer, he has seen “possibly a dozen” patients whose heart conditions might be connected to the covid vaccines.
“I can only say possibly—not definitively—because we do not yet have any diagnostic test that 100 percent says ‘this caused this.’ What we do is what’s called a process of exclusion. We look for common associations like coronavirus, influenza virus, other infections, atherosclerosis or coronary artery disease, alcohol, recreational drugs, and if everything keeps coming back negative or normal, then by default and process of exclusion, vaccine-associated heart injury is a probability.
“Usually we don’t even see that many [heart problems] in a year,” Verma said. Adding that prior to the pandemic it would be “much less than that per year.” Verma is puzzled as to why the media has given more attention to covid vaccine blood clot issues when there have been many more cases of myocarditis, according to his observation.

North Korea’s suspected tally of ‘covid’ cases reaches over two million without PCR testing | | added May 20
SEOUL — North Korea reported 2.24 million people “sickened with fever” as of Thursday evening — a big jump from last week when the secretive nation acknowledged its first suspected cases of covid-19.
North Korean’s state-run Korean Central News Agency is still not referring to the outbreak as covid-19, likely because there are no test kits to diagnose patients. South Korea-based analysts who have been closely monitoring the North for the last few decades suggest that the tally revealed by the reclusive regime each day may not be accurate, due to a lack of testing capabilities.
“There is no evidence that North Korea is using PCR test kits to determine covid-19 patients, so no one outside can say for sure if it’s just fever or covid-19 symptoms,” Philo Kim, associate professor at Seoul National University’s Institute for Peace and Unification Studies, told ABC News on Thursday evening.
U.S. records one case of rare and unusual monkeypox virus, prompts concern from health professionals | added May 20
The U.S. has now recorded one case of monkeypox, in Massachusetts on Wednesday, and a suspected case in New York City on Thursday. The rare disease is typically found in central and west Africa. A small number of confirmed or suspected cases have also been reported recently in the United Kingdom, Portugal, Spain, Italy and Sweden.
The sudden surge of cases has prompted concern from public health professionals.“Monkeypox usually does not occur globally,” Dr. Anne W. Rimoin, a professor of epidemiology at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, told USA TODAY. Rimoin, who has extensively studied monkeypox and other infectious diseases in Central Africa, said such outbreaks are “rare and unusual occurrence.”
Although most people recover from the virus, it can be dangerous and fatal, though typically far fewer than 1% of cases in areas with high-quality medical care, said Dr. Aaron Glatt, a fellow of the Infectious Diseases Society of America.
U.S. signs $119 million dollar deal for vaccines against the monkeypox virus after one case reported | added May 20
The US health authorities have signed a deal for $119 million in vaccine doses against the monkeypox virus, after a Massachusetts man was diagnosed with the rare but potentially serious illness earlier this week. The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) – a government agency devoted to combating pandemics and bioterrorism – signed the multi-million-dollar contract with Danish pharma firm Bavarian Nordic on Wednesday, the company announced in a statement.
The $119 million deal is one in a series of contract options which could ultimately reach a total value of $299 million if exercised, in exchange for around 13 million freeze-dried doses of the Jynneos vaccine. It was originally created for smallpox, but was approved for use against monkeypox by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2019, just months before the first cases of covid-19 were detected in China.
Initial deliveries for the Jynneos shot won’t come until 2023, the company said, noting that the full 13 million doses are expected to be ready sometime between 2024 and 2025 should BARDA agree to extend the contract. The first monkeypox case in the US was confirmed on Wednesday in a man who had recently traveled to Canada. Federal health officials have since said they are monitoring six others after they came into close proximity to an infected traveler during a flight from Nigeria to the UK earlier this month, while another possible case is being investigated by the New York City Health Department.
World Health Organization is changing their ‘international health regulations’ once again and it’s not good | added May 20
May 22nd is the start of the World Health Organisation’s 75th annual World Health Assembly, in Geneva. Funnily enough, that’s the same day the World Economic Forum’s DAVOS summit begins over on the other side of Switzerland.
A coincidence, to be sure. In the run-up to these big days on the globalist calendar, there’s been a lot of discussion of the WHO’s proposed “pandemic treaty”. Everyone from Russell Brand to GBNews has been talking about it, and that’s good. The treaty represents a huge threat to national sovereignty and individual liberty, with proposed clauses including international digital IDs and even incentivizing third-world nations to exaggerate or even create a future “health emergencies”.
So, you can’t have too much awareness…but it also shouldn’t be our exclusive focus. The treaty is only in the very early stages, with even the earliest draft version not expected until August, and likely no vote on it until 2024. But what’s expected to be voted through next week is the US mission’s proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR). This is what should currently be our major focus.
Indiana attorney general calls out the CDC over ‘covid’ misinformation | added May 20

Since the Biden administration on April 27 announced the creation of the board — likened by some to the “Ministry of Truth” depicted in George Orwell’s novel “1984” — the board has come under fire for its “somewhat ominous name and scant details of specific mission,” The Washington Post reported.

Retired neurosurgeon, Russell L. Blaylock on the ‘covid’ deception and what is truth? | added May 19
Editor’s Note: Bravo Blaylock for recapping in a nutshell the mass manipulation of ‘covid’ that is still happening. It is important we put into context just how a medical bureaucracy was able to get away with mandating experimental treatment measures so that we can stop it and find justice.— mmd
The covid-19 pandemic is one of the most manipulated infectious disease events in history, characterized by official lies in an unending stream lead by government bureaucracies, medical associations, medical boards, the media, and international agencies.[3,6,57] We have witnessed a long list of unprecedented intrusions into medical practice, including attacks on medical experts, destruction of medical careers among doctors refusing to participate in killing their patients and a massive regimentation of health care, led by non-qualified individuals with enormous wealth, power and influence.
For the first time in American history a president, governors, mayors, hospital administrators and federal bureaucrats are determining medical treatments based not on accurate scientifically based or even experience based information, but rather to force the acceptance of special forms of care and “prevention”—including remdesivir, use of respirators and ultimately a series of essentially untested messenger RNA vaccines.
For the first time in history medical treatment, protocols are not being formulated based on the experience of the physicians treating the largest number of patients successfully, but rather individuals and bureaucracies that have never treated a single patient—including Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, EcoHealth Alliance, the CDC, WHO, state public health officers and hospital administrators.
Depression, loneliness tied to higher ‘covid’ hospitalizations, according to new survey | added May 19
People who reported in a survey that they felt worried, depressed or lonely had a greater chance of being hospitalized after a covid-19 diagnosis, suggests a study funded by the National Institutes of Health. The study, which analyzed survey data from more than 54,000 female nurses and their offspring, was conducted by Andrea L. Roberts, Ph.D., of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Boston, and colleagues. It appears in Psychological Medicine.
Between April 2020 and April 2021, slightly more than 3,600 study participants tested positive for SAR-CoV-2 infection. Those who reported chronic (long-term) depression before the pandemic were 72% more likely to be hospitalized after their diagnosis for covid-19.
Those who scored high on likely indicators of depression (probable depression) when they began the study were 81% more likely to be hospitalized than those who did not. Being very worried about covid-19 was associated with a 79% increase in risk for hospitalization. Moreover, those who reported persistent feelings of loneliness were 81% more likely to be hospitalized than those who did not. Feelings of anxiety and stress were not associated with a higher risk for hospitalization.
North Korea sends three cargo planes to China during ‘covid’ outbreak, unknown what was on board | added May 19
Seoul, South Korea (CNN) Three North Korean cargo planes flew to China and back on Monday, as the country battles a fast-spreading outbreak of covid-19, according to a South Korean government official with knowledge of the matter.
The planes traveled to Taoxian International Airport in Shenyang, in China’s northeast Liaoning province, the official said. It’s unknown what the planes were carrying, but the rare trip came after China pledged to help North Korea with its covid outbreak, which experts have warned could cause a major humanitarian crisis in the isolated and impoverished nation.
North Korea officially confirmed its first ever covid cases last week. It had not previously acknowledged any cases, and has kept its borders tightly shut since January 2020. Since May 12, North Korea has reported nearly two million “fever” cases, with state media calling it a “major national emergency” and authorities scrambling to respond. All cities have been placed under lockdown, and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has mobilized the military to help secure the supply of medicine in the capital Pyongyang.
Biden’s health officials warn of an upcoming surge of ‘covid’ cases | added May 19
WASHINGTON — Federal health officials warned on Wednesday that a third of Americans live in areas where the threat of covid-19 is now so high that they should consider wearing a mask in indoor public settings. They cited new data showing a substantial jump in both the spread of the coronavirus and hospitalizations over the past week.
Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that the seven-day average of hospital admissions from covid rose 19 percent over the previous week. About 3,000 people a day were being admitted with covid, she said, although death rates, a lagging indicator, remained low.
More than 32 percent of Americans now live in counties with medium to high levels of virus transmission, compared with about 24 percent the previous week. Dr. Walensky said that local leaders and individuals in those regions should adopt — or at least consider — prevention strategies, such as masking in indoor public settings and more frequent testing.
Lawmaker blames baby formula crisis on corporate greed, seeks 28 million dollars to ease shortage | added May 19
Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) on Tuesday introduced legislation calling for $28 million in emergency funds to help the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) address the nation’s infant formula shortage.
In a House briefing, DeLauro said there are two parts to the nationwide shortage: safety and supply, and “parents should not have to choose between these two things.” DeLauro, Democratic chair of the House Appropriations Committee, said her legislation addresses the “here and now” issue of the shortage, a crisis she blamed on industry monopolies.
“The shortage was caused in large part by corporate greed and consolidation,” DeLauro said. “There are only four manufacturers of infant formula in the United States.” In this case, DeLauro said, it was Abbott Nutrition that “put profits and production over people, and due to what is a disgraceful lack of oversight is now causing parents and caregivers to struggle to feed their kids.”
CDC investigates 180 cases of sudden severe hepatitis in children | added May 19
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now investigating 180 cases of children who suddenly developed severe hepatitis across 36 states and territories, an increase of 71 cases since the public health agency’s last update earlier this month.
The CDC, in a statement Wednesday, said the vast majority are not new cases of hepatitis. Rather, the number of patients under investigation have increased as the agency looks more closely at data that goes back to October of last year.
Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver that is commonly caused by hepatitis viruses A, B, C, D and E. The cases the CDC is investigating are unusual because the children have not tested positive for those viruses and they have suffered severe symptoms, with 9% requiring liver transplants, which is rare.
Biden and Department of Homeland Security suspend plans for a federal “disinformation” governance board after major push back | added May 19
After a flood of protests likening his plans for a federal “disinformation” governance board to the “Ministry of Truth” and “thought” police of the dystopian novel, “1984,” President Biden and the Department of Homeland Security have put the idea on hold.
According to reports published Wednesday, May 18, 2022, by The Washington Post, the decision came in the wake of what the administration said were “coordinated online attacks” against the board’s proposed director, Nina Jankowicz.
While the Biden administration has steadfastly claimed Jankowicz is highly qualified for the position, critics — including state and federal lawmakers — pointed to her dismissal of parents’ concerns about critical race theory being taught in schools as “disinformation for profit.” They also pointed out that she’d called the now-confirmed as true Hunter Biden laptop stories as a conspiracy theory.
Biden proposes dictatorial “amendments” to WHO Pandemic Treaty | added May 19
The Biden regime has proposed “amendments” to the so-called WHO Pandemic Treaty—changes granting that supremely dirty global body dictatorial control over health policy in 194 countries.
Should those “amendments” be approved at the WHO’s upcoming conclave next week (May 22-28), the WHO will have the quasi-legal power to declare pandemics, and then impose on all the world whatever “measures” they deem necessary to “keep us safe,” whether you like it or not, and, if you don’t (as you definitely won’t), there will be no way for you to vote them out.
As “our free press” has whited out this urgent story, we need to spread the word about it far and wide, and, in so doing, remember that the WHO hailed the CCP’s draconian lockdowns back in early 2020; shifted, for no scientific reason, to the CCP’s mask policy a few months later (after having rightly urged that healthy people not wear masks); hailed New Zealand’s emulation of the CCP’s crackdown approach to covid; recommended China’s lethal ventilator protocol to all the world; and, throughout these last two months of living hell for millions of the Chinese people, uttered not a peep of protest over Xi Jinping’s atrocious lockdowns of Shanghai and other areas, notwithstanding their extreme brutality, and scientific groundlessness.
Pentagon officials show unclassified videos of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, “do not have explanation for spherical object” | added May 19
Pentagon officials on May 17 showed lawmakers two videos of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), more colloquially known as UFOs, in the first open congressional hearing on the subject since 1966.
The testimonies before the House Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation Subcommittee showed two videos recorded by U.S. military personnel. The first video, shot in 2021 by military personnel through the window of a U.S. Navy aircraft, showed a white-ish reflective spherical object flying past the aircraft.
“I do not have explanations for what this specific object is,” said Scott W. Bray, deputy director of naval intelligence involved in the UAP Task Force (UAPTF), the Pentagon body responsible for UAP investigations, at the hearing. The second video, shot by an SLR camera via a night vision google, showed a triangular-shaped object moving in the sky while emitting light. This time, Bray is “reasonably confident” that these triangles were drones flying in the area. “The triangular appearance is a result of light passing through the night vision goggles and then being recorded by an SLR camera,” Bray explained.

FDA approves ‘covid’ booster drug shot for children 5-11 years-old | added May 18
The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday authorized a booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech covid-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11. Children in the age group can get a booster shot at least five months after they’ve received the primary two-dose series, the FDA said in a statement.
The booster shot is 10 micrograms, the same dosage as the primary series for the age group and a third of the dosage given to people ages 12 and up.
The FDA’s decision will now go to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which will make a recommendation about how the boosters should be used for the age group.
Biden administration makes eight additional free at-home tests available | added May 18
The Biden administration is opening CovidTests.gov for a third round of orders while reiterating its calls on Congress to act on additional covid response funding.
US households are now able to order “an additional eight free at-home tests at covidtests.gov—bringing the total number of free tests available to each household since the start of the program to 16,” the White House said in a fact sheet on Tuesday. The tests were first made available on Monday.
The government first launched the website to allow for the order of free tests in January, and Americans were able to order their second round of tests in March. During both rounds, people could order a maximum of four tests per household. This third round doubles that.
Current inefficient ‘covid’ shots against variants call for future investments of new vax, say experts | added May 18
For more than a year now, the original covid-19 vaccines have held up remarkably well — even miraculously so — against a Greek alphabet of new variants: alpha, beta, gamma, delta.
But now experts say something is changing. Since the start of 2022, the initial version of omicron, known as BA.1, has been spinning off new sublineages — BA.2, BA.2.12.1, BA.4, BA.5 — at an alarming pace.
Earlier variants did this too. But it never really mattered, because their offshoots “had no functional consequence,” according to Eric Topol, founder of Scripps Research Translational Institute. “They did not increase transmissibility or pathogenicity.”
Mom swallows ‘covid’ test and undergoes emergency surgery | added May 18
A UK mother feared for her life after accidentally swallowing a covid-19 test throat swab — which ended up traveling all the way down toward her intestines.
“It was really scary . . . It could have ended up fatal,” Bobby Lee, 31, told South West News Service of the stomach-churning case. The mother of one had opted to take an at-home covid-19 rapid test after feeling sick following a night shift, but when she tried to swab her throat, the implement wouldn’t come out.
“When I swabbed the back of my throat, I sort of gagged,” the petrified parent described. “The stick twanged in my mouth and got stuck at the back of my throat, with the swab down my throat and the end stuck in the roof of my mouth at the back.
NYC raises ‘covid’ alert to “high”, strongly recommends masks in public indoor settings | added May 18
New York City entered the “high” covid-19 alert level Tuesday, and health officials are strongly recommending wearing masks in public indoor settings.
Health officials say there is high community spread, and pressure on the health care system is increasing. “New York City has transitioned to a high covid alert level, meaning now is the time to double down on protecting ourselves and each other by making choices that can keep our friends, neighbors, relatives and coworkers from getting sick,” Health Commissioner Dr. Ashwin Vasan said.
“As a city, we have the tools to blunt the impact of this wave, including distributing tests, masks and promoting treatments. Getting back to Low Risk depends on everyone doing their part and if we follow guidance, our forecasts anticipate this wave’s peak will not last long. What we do now can make all the difference.”
FDA reveals more Pfizer documents that show reports of adverse vax reactions “unrelated” to shot | added May 18
The latest release of Pfizer-BioNTech covid-19 vaccine documents raises questions about how frequently adverse events experienced by clinical trial participants were reported as “unrelated” to the vaccine.
The 80,000-page document cache released May 2 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) includes an extensive set of Case Report Forms (CRFs) from Pfizer trials conducted at various locations in the U.S. The documents also include the “third interim report” from BioNTech’s trials conducted in Germany (accompanied by a synopsis of this report and a database of adverse events from this particular set of trials).
The FDA released the documents, which pertain to the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the vaccine, as part of a court-ordered disclosure schedule stemming from an expedited Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed in August 2021.
Dogs accurately sniff out ‘covid’ comparable to PCR nose and throat swab tests | added May 18
TUESDAY, May 17, 2022 (HealthDay News) — Dogs’ ultra-sensitive noses can detect illegal drugs and even cancer, and a new study suggests they may also be able to sniff out covid-19 in airline passengers.
Not only that, these trained canines can do so with an accuracy comparable to a PCR nose and throat swab test, the researchers noted. “Our preliminary observations suggest that dogs primed with one virus type can in a few hours be retrained to detect its variants,” Anu Kantele and colleagues reported in the May 16 issue of the journal BMJ Global Health. Kantele is a professor of infectious diseases at Helsinki University Hospital and Faculty of Medicine, Finland.
Dogs have a superb sense of smell. They can detect a scent at levels as low as one part per trillion, far surpassing any available mechanical methods, the authors said in background notes.
Kim Jong-un acknowledges China’s “success” in fighting ‘covid’, urges government to follow lead | added May 18
SEOUL — When North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, acknowledged an outbreak of covid-19 last week, he ordered his government to learn from China’s “success” fighting the virus. What he did not say is that an attempt to follow China’s pandemic response could send his impoverished country toward catastrophe.
China has used strict lockdowns, mass testing and vaccinations to keep cases low throughout the pandemic. North Korea — which by its own admission is experiencing an explosive outbreak of the virus — lacks the basic therapeutics and food supplies that China has mobilized to enforce the extreme restrictions seen in cities like Wuhan, Xi’an and Shanghai.
Now, public health experts are warning that Mr. Kim’s desire to follow the Chinese model will only worsen the impact of a fast spreading disaster. Already the number of new suspected patients in North Korea has soared from 18,000 last Thursday to hundreds of thousands a day this week, though it is impossible to know the true scale of the outbreak.
Big pharma funds paper that would tax people unvaxed against ‘covid’ | added May 18
A new paper published by Oxford University’s Center for Business Taxation discusses – and in the end supports – the idea of a special tax levied on those who decline to be “vaccinated” against “covid19”.
The paper’s authors argue that a vaccine-related tax would be “justified” because “Taxes on behaviour that is considered undesirable are nothing new“. And that even if the “vaccines” do cause serious harm to some people…
“some states do adopt policies that can lead to serious harm in exceptional cases when they consider that the benefits outweigh the costs“ Yes, you did read that right. They go on to suggest all sorts of ways of correcting this “undesirable behaviour”, from straight taxation to tax credits for those who have been vaccinated, to vaccine mandates and compulsory covid insurance for the unvaccinated (which is just another way of saying “taxation”).
NYC urges indoor masking as ‘covid’ cases rise but will not push unlawful mandates | added May 17
Citing high community transmission and rising hospitalizations from a fifth wave of coronavirus cases, New York City health officials on Monday strongly recommended that all individuals wear medical-grade masks in offices, grocery stores and other public indoor settings citywide.
The new recommendations, issued in a health advisory by the city health commissioner, came as the city approached the orange, or “high” alert level for covid-19, a benchmark it expects to hit in the coming days. The new advisory also called on those who are at increased risk for severe illness, including unvaccinated children under 5 and people over 65, to avoid nonessential indoor gatherings and crowded settings.
The recommendations are not mandates, however. Mayor Eric Adams, who rolled back school masking regulations and vaccination checks at restaurants and theaters months ago, has not signaled a willingness to return to mandates, though he has said he is watching the situation closely.
Federal government orders third round of free at home ‘covid’ tests for American households | added May 17
The federal government started taking orders Monday for a third round of covid-19 test kits to be mailed to any U.S. household. A Department of Health and Human Services website said Monday that all U.S. households were eligible to order a third round of tests. Each order now contains eight rapid antigen tests, the U.S. Postal Service website says. Previously, four tests were sent out at a time.
A spokesperson for the White House said Monday night that more details were expected to be released Tuesday. President Joe Biden in December announced a plan to ship free at-home tests to people across the country, and the website with the first tests went live in January.
A second round was announced in March. The number of new covid cases has been increasing in recent weeks, although whether that factored into the latest round of tests was not immediately clear.
Investigation is launched on the unprecedented spike of newborn deaths in Scotland | added May 17
An investigation is under way after a spike in the number of newborn baby deaths in Scotland was recorded for the second time in six months. At least 18 babies under four weeks old died in March, a rate of 4.6 per 1,000 births.
Infant death rates vary widely from month to month, but the increase is larger than expected from chance alone. It comes after at least 21 babies under four weeks old died in September, a rate of 4.9 per 1,000 births. A preliminary investigation later found the spike was not linked to covid.
The spikes in September and March are the first to be detected since monitoring of this nature began in July 2017. The average mortality rate among newborns is just over two per 1,000 births. While all child deaths are investigated, The Herald newspaper reported that this wider inquiry was triggered when the mortality rate passed an “upper control” threshold of 4.4 per 1,000 births.
Bayer pressured researchers to omit defective insecticide-treated seed, according to U.S. Right to Know | added May 17
Agrichemical giant Bayer helped fund a study by university academics, then pressured them to omit photos that implicated a defective insecticide-treated seed product as a threat to bees, according to communications obtained by U.S. Right to Know.
Several seed and insecticide companies, including Bayer, paid Ohio State University researchers to determine how much their insecticide-coated seed products affected bees during corn planting season in 2014 and 2015. After the researchers presented their preliminary results to “stakeholders,” which included funders, a Bayer official asked that their final report exclude photos of insecticide-coated corn seeds in which the product appeared defective.
He also urged the researchers to qualify statements in the final report that discussed threats to bee health in ways that benefited Bayer’s corporate interests. Although the photos and all the researchers’ conclusions ultimately made it to the final publication, internal emails show the seed and chemical industry funders intensely scrutinizing the researchers’ findings during pre-publication presentations.
Anthony Fauci reveals what he would do if Trump was elected in 2024 | added May 17
White House covid-19 adviser Anthony Fauci revealed what he would do if former President Donald Trump wins the presidency in 2024. Speaking to CNN on Sunday, when asked if he would stay around under a new Trump administration, Fauci said he would not.
“Uh, well, no,” Fauci replied, laughing. When asked by CNN if Fauci would “not serve with Trump again,” Fauci replied: “Right, for sure. Yeah.” Fauci was also asked about the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic.
“I think just history will speak for itself about that. I don’t need to make any further comments on that … It’s not productive,” he said. There have been more covid-19-related deaths under the Biden administration than under the Trump administration. In about 10 months under the final period of the Trump administration, data suggests there were about 425,000 deaths in the United States. Under President Joe Biden’s first year, there were about 455,000 covid-19 deaths, according to federal data.
An exit from the ‘covid’ pandemic could include more drugs, nasal and oral vaccines that are variant proof | added May 17
As the virus accelerates its evolution, the humans capitulate. For two and a half years, covid-19 has been outrunning our response, getting more and more transmissible, reaching a level of infectiousness that few pathogens have ever attained. Instead of taking a stance of getting ahead of the virus, and outsmarting it, people have succumbed.
In recent months, we experienced a striking jump in transmissibility when the omicron (BA.1) variant became dominant, with at least a threefold increase in reproductive number beyond delta. Despite the hope that this might be reaching the upper limit of the virus’s spreadability, we quickly transitioned to a BA.2 wave, with at least another jump of about 30% transmissibility, and now we are heading, in the United States, to a dominant subvariant known as BA.2.12.1, which is another 25% more transmissible than BA.2 and already accounting for close to 50% of new cases.
This surely constitutes a meaningful acceleration of the virus’s evolution. There have been thousands of variants over the course of the pandemic, but only five major variants, affecting large populations of people, received Greek letter designations (alpha, beta, gamma, delta and omicron).
CDC places popular African destination on ‘high risk’ for ‘covid’ | added May 17
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has placed a popular African destination in its “high” covid-19 risk category for travelers. South Africa — renowned for its stunning vistas, wildlife, wineries and culture — is now at Level 3. In total, the CDC moved up four destinations to the “high” risk column on Monday:
• Antigua and Barbuda
• South Africa
The CDC recently overhauled its ratings system for assessing covid-19 risk for travelers. The Level 3 “high” risk category is now the top rung in terms of risk level. Level 2 is considered “moderate” risk, and Level 1 is “low” risk.

WHO global pandemic treaty proposal that violates human rights and how to stop it | added May 16
The globalists that brought us the wildly exaggerated covid pandemic in an effort to cement a biosecurity grid into place are now hard at work on the next phase of this New World Order.
The World Health Organization has started drafting a global pandemic treaty on pandemic preparedness that would grant it absolute power over global biosecurity, such as the power to implement digital identities/vaccine passports, mandatory vaccinations, travel restrictions, standardized medical care and more.
In “The Corbett Report”, above, independent journalist James Corbett reviews what this treaty is, how it will change the global landscape and strip you of some of your most basic rights and freedoms. Make no mistake, the WHO pandemic treaty is a direct attack on the sovereignty of its member states, as well as a direct attack on your bodily autonomy.
Former Pfizer vice president admits mandatory universal vaccines are a crime against humanity | added May 16
Former Pfizer VP Michael Yeadon maintains that since the infection fatality ratio of covid-19 has not been high, the vaccines should not have been mandated. Moreover, he heavily blasted the corporate media mantras that designate these as safe, effective, and necessary to end the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic.
Yeadon is a big pharma veteran with 32 years in the industry. He worked as the head of allergy and respiratory research at Pfizer from 1995 to 2011 and is the former founder and CEO of Ziarco, a biotech company acquired by Novartis. Furthermore, he has a doctorate in respiratory pharmacology and holds a Double First Class Honors degree in biochemistry and toxicology.
A shocking 1,223 deaths and 42,086 adverse events were reported to Pfizer from the first day of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine rollout on Dec. 1, 2020, to Feb. 28, 2021.
Kim Jong Un orders North Korea’s military to stabilize ‘covid’ drug distribution for outbreak | added May 16
SEOUL (Reuters) -Leader Kim Jong Un has ordered North Korea’s military to stabilise distribution of covid-19 medicine in the capital, Pyongyang, in the battle against the country’s first confirmed outbreak of the disease, state media said.
Last week brought the North’s first acknowledgment of an “explosive” outbreak, with experts warning it could devastate a country with limited medical supplies and no vaccine programme. Drugs procured by the state were not reaching people quickly or accurately, Kim told an emergency politburo meeting on Sunday, before visiting pharmacies near the capital’s Taedong River, state news agency KCNA said.
Kim ordered immediate deployment of the “powerful forces” of the army’s medical corps to “stabilise the supply of medicines in Pyongyang City”, it added. Although authorities had ordered distribution of national reserves of medicine, pharmacies were not well-equipped to perform their functions smoothly, Kim added, the agency said.

Pharma giant Pfizer’s analysis finds without its ‘covid’ shot there would be more deaths | added May 16
In the wake of the tragic milestone of 1 million official covid-19 deaths in the United States, a new analysis found that without vaccines, the virus would have likely claimed more than 100,000 additional lives in 2021.
The analysis, sponsored by Pfizer, estimated that the Pfizer vaccine alone likely saved more than 110,000 lives in 2021, the first year of the vaccination campaign. Though Pfizer sponsored the analysis, experts interviewed by ABC agreed it was reasonable, echoing prior estimates that the death toll would have been more than three times in 2021 in the absence of effective vaccines.
“With this model, I don’t see the numbers falling out of range and I do suspect that they are a reasonable representation of what could’ve happened in the absence of covid-19 vaccines,” Dr. Amesh Adalja, FIDSA, infectious disease specialist at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security, told ABC News.
White House admits it lied about ‘covid’ vaccine distribution | added May 16
As rampant inflation continues to kick Americans in the teeth, the Biden administration can’t stop doing victory laps over how much they’ve ‘accomplished’ – by taking credit for things that were already in motion.
On Thursday, the White House patted itself on the back once again – bragging about ‘8.3 million jobs’ and ‘the fastest decline in unemployment to start a President’s term’ in history — the natural reaction to the government’s job-killing pandemic restrictions being lifted.
For starters, Biden himself was vaccinated before taking office. In fact, more than one million doses per day were being administered when Biden took office under the Trump administration’s ‘Operation Warp Speed.’ And while the admin can count on Twitter not to label their tweet ‘false or misleading’ – as they so frequently did during the last administration, the lie was so blatant that CNN even called them out on it – and they issued a correction the next day (it wasn’t a lie, they simply ‘misstated’ a fact).
This week in the “new normal” — inoculating teenagers without parental consent | added May 16
1. California law allows 12 year olds to be vaccinated…without parental consent
All the information you really need is right there in the title. On Thursday California lawmakers voted in favour of bill SB886, which lowers the age of consent for all vaccinations to 12. Clearly, this includes covid “vaccines”.
In fact the whole point of the bill – proposed by Democrat State Senator Scott Weiner – was to “circumvent” parents who were denying their children access to covid “vaccines”. Now, instead of having to convince parents to give their children experimental mRNA shots, they simply have to flood the schoolrooms of impressionable kids with propaganda, and then herd them all off to the gym to get their shots.
FDA will allow controversial Abbott facility to reopen amid baby formula supply shortage | added May 16
As parents across the U.S. are scrambling to find baby formula because of supply disruptions, the Food and Drug Administration announced Tuesday it would allow some formula products from the shuttered Abbott facility in Michigan to be released on a “case-by-case” basis.
In February, the FDA warned parents not to use certain popular powdered infant formulas manufactured at Abbott’s Sturgis plant after receiving four reports of infants who were hospitalized with bacterial infections after consuming formula from the facility. Two of the infants died.
Abbott subsequently issued a recall of all potentially affected products manufactured at the facility and the FDA later shut down the plant after federal safety inspectors found Abbott failed to maintain sanitary conditions and procedures at the facility.
Saudi Aramco and big oil companies report record breaking profits as gas prices surge around the world | added May 16
Saudi Aramco has posted its highest profits since its 2019 listing as oil and gas prices surge around the world. The state-owned energy giant saw an 82% jump in profits, with net income topping $39.5bn (£32.2bn) in the first quarter.
In a press release, the firm said it had been boosted by higher prices, as well as an increase in production. The invasion of Ukraine has seen oil and gas prices skyrocket. Russia is one of the world’s biggest exporters but Western nations have pledged to cut their dependence on the country for energy.
Oil prices were already rising before the Ukraine war as economies started to recover from the covid pandemic and demand outstripped supply. Other energy firms including Shell, BP and TotalEnergies have also reported soaring profits as a result, although many are incurring costs exiting operations in Russia.

I have a long-anticipated interview: with Carol van Strum of Tidewater, Oregon. I was a pretty good reporter before I met Carol in 1992.
Then she taught me the art of document collecting. I know it looks like she collects donkeys who are friends with a horse, which is true — though she is in truth an American heroine, having spent 45 years taking on some of the most horrid polluters in the world. Read a bit about her in The Intercept.
In our conversation, she tells the story of how she went “back to the land” and bought a farm in Oregon, then three months later, her children and dog were sprayed by a roadside truck dumping Agent Orange into the land and local river. That day her life changed forever. We discuss her journalistic standard of preparing every article for the judge and jury.
Nearly 30,000 deaths reported to VAERS after ‘covid’ shots, according to CDC data | added May 14
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released new data showing a total of 1,261,149 reports of adverse events following covid-19 vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 6, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.
The data included a total of 27,968 reports of deaths — an increase of 210 over the previous week — and 228,477 serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 1,774 compared with the previous week. There were 5,794 additional total adverse events reported to VAERS over the previous week.
Excluding “foreign reports” to VAERS, 815,384 adverse events, including 12,899 deaths and 81,830 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 6, 2022.

South Africa ‘covid’ surge due to ‘omicron’ strains, claims health experts | added May 14
The BA.4 and BA.5 strains of omicron – which appear to be very much like the original strain of omicron – make up the majority of the new cases, according to Professor Marta Nunes, a researcher at Vaccine and Infectious Diseases Analytics at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.
“The majority of new cases are from these two strains. They are still omicron … but just genomically somewhat different,” she told The Associated Press, noting that there is a small increase in hospitalizations and “really very few deaths.”
The average of new cases have risen from around 300 per day in April to about 8,000 per day last week – though experts posit that the actual number of cases is much higher. The sub-variants appear to infect people who have immunity from earlier covid-19 infections and vaccinations, and Nunes said they cause generally mild disease.
New JAMA study shows Pfizer’s booster jab efficacy against ‘covid’ wanes in just weeks | added May 14
The SARS-CoV-2 omicron variant of concern1 (VOC) is highly resistant to vaccine-induced antibody neutralization2 and associated with a decline in vaccine efficacy within the first 3 months following the primary 2-dose regimen of the SARS-CoV-2 BNT162b2 (Pfizer/BioNTech) mRNA vaccine3,4 and from 10 weeks after a third BNT162b2 dose.4
To associate omicron-specific neutralizing antibody levels with reported vaccine efficacies, we performed a temporal analysis of virus neutralization responses against an ancestral strain (D614G), the Delta VOC, and the Omicron VOC (BA.1) following 2 or 3 doses of the BNT162b2 vaccine.
This cohort study includes Danish adults who received 2 or 3 doses of BNT162b2 between January 2021 and October 2021 or were previously infected prior to February 2021 and then vaccinated. In the latter group, given the timeframe, individuals became infected with ancestral SARS-CoV-2 strains before VOCs became dominant in Denmark. We determined 50% serum neutralization titers using a live virus microneutralization assay5 (eAppendix in the Supplement).
Teacher recommends sending in child services after parents resist secretive transgender push by school | added May 14
If Erin Lee had known what her 12-year-old daughter would be exposed to during an afterschool “art club” last May, she would have never allowed her to go. It began innocently enough. Lee received a text from her daughter asking if she could stay late for an “art club” at Wellington Middle School near Fort Collins, Colorado. What happened next, though, would change their lives forever.
The “art club” was actually a meeting of the school’s Genders & Sexualities Alliance (GSA) club, a group dedicated to supporting homosexuality, transgenderism, and other nontraditional ideas about gender and sexuality.
When the leader told Amanda (name changed to protect the minor) she must be “queer” if she didn’t feel sexually attracted to anybody, and that she must be “transgender” if she didn’t feel fully comfortable in her own body, the shy little girl suspected something wasn’t right.
New York urged to mask up again regardless of vax status amid rising ‘covid’ cases | added May 14
Almost three-quarters of New York state under the CDC’s high-risk designation for covid is being urged to wear face masks in indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. The new recommendation came from the State Department of Health Friday afternoon and falls in line with CDC guidance.
The health commissioner is urging everyone in the state’s 45 counties considered high-risk to don a face mask again. New York City remains at a medium or low-risk level. Almost 150 U.S. counties now meet the CDC’s threshold for a high-risk community level covid alert, marking a nearly three-fold increase in less than two weeks and a 79% increase since Monday, according to Friday’s federal data — and just one county of New York’s 62 fit the health agency’s low-risk standard at this point.
That county, some may be surprised to learn, is the Bronx, the New York City borough with the second-lowest full vaccination rate of the five, behind only Brooklyn (74% vs. 72%), according to city health department data.
Air pollution linked to ‘covid’ risk among young adults, according to one Swedish study | added May 14
Since pollutants in outdoor air can increase the risk of respiratory infections such as influenza and SARS, the covid-19 pandemic aroused fears that they could also contribute to the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Studies have also shown that areas of poor air quality have more cases of covid-19.
Researchers at Karolinska Institutet have now studied this more closely by examining the link between estimated exposure to air pollutants at home addresses and positive PCR tests for SARS-CoV-2 in young adults in Stockholm, Sweden.

North Korea reports six deaths after admitting first ‘covid’ outbreak | added May 13
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Six people have died and 350,000 have been treated for a fever that has spread “explosively” across North Korea, state media said Friday, a day after the country acknowledged a COVID-19 outbreak for the first time in the pandemic.
North Korea likely doesn’t have sufficient COVID-19 tests and said it didn’t know the cause of the mass fevers. But a big coronavirus outbreak could be devastating in a country with a broken health care system and an unvaccinated, malnourished population.
The North’s Korean Central News Agency said of the 350,000 people who developed fevers since late April, 162,200 have recovered. It said 18,000 people were newly found with fever symptoms on Thursday alone, and 187,800 are being isolated for treatment.
Metro officials consider mask only railcars as ‘covid’ cases rise across the U.S. | added May 13
FOX 5’s Perris Jones says Metro is actively looking into having mask-only railcars. The transit agency is trying to see how feasible it is. One of their biggest concerns, Jones says, is how they would enforce it.
Metro riders we spoke with for the most part agreed with the idea of designating some railcars as mask only while others told us it should depend on case count.
The idea of mask only railcars was discussed during Thursday’s Special Board of Directors meeting. Metro officials say they were already considering the option. The concern, they say, is about how to enforce it and how it could possibly create conflict among some riders.
NY Health officials warn new ‘covid’ subvariant is most contagious strain yet | added May 13
The COVID-19 subvariant estimated by New York state health officials to be substantially more contagious than the first descendant of the potent omicron strain now accounts for up to 73.3% of all virus circulating in the region that encompasses the Empire State, according to new CDC data released Tuesday.
Prevalence of BA.2.12.1, which health officials say appears to be at least 25% more transmissible than BA.2 (which is said to be more 30% more contagious than its predecessor, omicron), in the agency’s New York region has been increasing at a far faster rate than nationally, the latest weekly update shows.
The CDC puts it at 66.3% (at least) of COVID cases in the New York region, which for its purposes also includes New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the British Virgin Islands, though says BA.2.12.1’s share of cases could be higher.
Big oil plans to drop 200 ‘carbon bombs’ worldwide that could unleash 646 billion tonnes of CO2 emissions | added May 13
A new investigation published Wednesday reveals that some of the largest fossil fuel corporations in the world — from Exxon in the U.S. to Gazprom in Russia to Aramco in Saudi Arabia — are planning or currently operating nearly 200 “carbon bombs,” massive oil and gas projects that could unleash 646 billion tonnes of CO2 emissions and doom efforts to rein in planetary warming.
Research shared exclusively with The Guardian ahead of its formal publication identifies at least 195 “carbon bombs” that are either in the process of being built or already in place across the globe as scientists warn that fossil fuel use must be quickly phased out to prevent catastrophic climate outcomes.
Led by Kjell Kühne from the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom, the research specifically defines carbon bombs as “projects capable of pumping at least 1 billion tonnes of CO2 emission
Professor and ‘covid’ lock down advocate admits scary negative impacts were never considered | added May 13
Britain relied too much on ‘very scary’ SAGE models to decide on lockdowns, according to the man behind some of those very projections.
Just months after SAGE predicted 6,000 deaths per day and called for a Christmas lockdown in response to Omicron, Professor John Edmunds said the models were only supposed to be ‘one component’ of decision-making but were leaned on too much by ministers.
He accepted the models failed to account for the economic harm and the knock-on health effects that lockdowns caused. Professor Edmunds admitted that these harms ‘in principle’ could have been factored into models ‘but in practice they were not’.
Is a social credit system coming for us? A look at what is happening in Bologna | added May 13
The city administration of Bologna, Italy, is piloting a program that brings the beast of the Fourth Industrial Revolution straight to the citizens. It’s an early reiteration of Klaus’ Schwab’s Fourth Industrial Revolution, the honey moon, so to speak — so it comes to the citizens wrapped in gift paper, with balloons, prizes, and party language. But make no mistake: underneath, there is cruel man-eating machine that wants to mine your data and control your behavior!
So, what exactly is happening in Bologna? The administration is “digitizing” their relationship with the citizens. For starters, they are launching an app — with a catch — that will provide an interface to get access to various local services. Without saying it, the they are implementing the “digital governance” aspect of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Quoting the Italian source:
“We will give citizens services based on their needs – says the Mayor – and this will allow us to personalize their experience. People will be able to find everything the administration will do on their mobile phones or computers. The physical branches, however, will not disappear.
California bill advances that allows teens to get inoculated without parental consent | added May 13
California lawmakers pass a bill to allow youths 12 and older to get vaccines without parental consent, despite lots of controversy.
California kids 12 and older are one step closer to being able to get vaccinated without parental consent after a key legislative committee on Thursday passed a controversial bill on a 7-0 vote despite hundreds of people expressing fierce opposition.
Just five of the eight bills introduced this year by a vaccine working group of Democratic lawmakers are still alive — and state Sen. Scott Wiener of San Francisco’s proposal to allow kids ages 12 to 17 to receive FDA-approved vaccines without a parent’s permission is by far the most contentious.
Call To Action: New International Health Regulations being proposed by WHO, you have just hours to make yourself heard | added May 13

You can read the draft proposal here. These amendments are set to be subject to a vote at the 75th World Health Assembly, beginning on the 22nd of this month. The US Department of Health and Human Services has thrown this process open to public consultation via a “listening session”, scheduled for 10am-12pm today.
‘Covid’ ghosts found lingering in the gut, according to oncologist and geneticist Ami Bhatt | added May 13
In the chaos of the first months of the coronavirus pandemic, oncologist and geneticist Ami Bhatt was intrigued by widespread reports of vomiting and diarrhoea in people infected with SARS-CoV-2. “At that time, this was thought to be a respiratory virus,” she says.
Bhatt and her colleagues, curious about a possible link between the virus and the gastrointestinal symptoms, began to collect stool samples from people with COVID-19. Thousands of miles away from Bhatt’s laboratory at Stanford Medicine in California, gastroenterology internist Timon Adolph was puzzled by accounts of gut symptoms in infected people.
Adolph and his colleagues at the Medical University of Innsbruck in Austria started to assemble specimens, too — gastrointestinal-tissue biopsies. Two years into the pandemic, the scientists’ foresight has paid off: both teams have recently published results1,2 suggesting that pieces of SARS-CoV-2 can linger in the gut for months after an initial infection.

United Kingdom joins U.S. on holding social media companies responsible for hate speech and “disinformation” posted by users | added May 12
The European Union’s Digital Services Act (DSA) and the U.K.’s proposed Online Safety Bill are among the latest government policies designed to hold social media companies responsible for hate speech and “disinformation” posted by users.
Experts interviewed by The Defender expressed concerns about the potential slippery slope of regulations — in the U.S. and overseas — which, under the guise of “combating disinformation,” stifle the spread of information deemed inconvenient for governments and other powerful actors.
As reported by The Defender, in the U.S., these proposals include a government “disinformation board” and a bill pending before Congress, the Digital Services Oversight and Safety Act. The EU’s new regulations, experts said, may have far-reaching impacts beyond Europe.
North Korea imposes first ever ‘covid’ nationwide lock down due to outbreak | added May 12
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea imposed a nationwide lockdown Thursday to control its first acknowledged covid-19 outbreak after holding for more than two years to a widely doubted claim of a perfect record keeping out the virus that has spread to nearly every place in the world.
The outbreak forced leader Kim Jong Un to wear a mask in public, likely for the first time since the start of the pandemic, but the scale of transmissions inside North Korea wasn’t immediately known. A failure to slow infections could have serious consequences because the country has a poor health care system and its 26 million people are believed to be mostly unvaccinated.
Some experts say North Korea, by its rare admission of an outbreak, may be seeking outside aid. However, hours after North Korea confirmed the outbreak, South Korea’s military said it detected the North had fired three suspected ballistic missiles toward the sea
Biden administration will urge Congress to pass additional ‘covid’ funding for future pandemics | added May 12
(CNN) – The Biden administration will forcefully urge Congress to pass additional covid-19 funding during Thursday’s virtual Global Covid-19 Summit, according to two senior administration officials.
The summit, the officials said, is aimed at “redoubling” efforts to control covid-19 and preparing the world for future variants of the coronavirus or the next deadly pandemic. On Thursday, the White House mourned the loss of 1 million American lives to covid-19, though other official tallies have placed the figure a bit short of that mark.
Thursday’s summit, which is co-hosted by the White House along with Germany, Indonesia, Senegal and Belize, will call for countries to invest in the new Global Pandemic Preparedness and Health Security fund at the World Bank, and the United States will be announcing that its pledge will increase to $450 million, up from the initially promised amount of $250 million.
Global governments to meet on next ‘covid’ response steps with emphasis on inoculating the planet | added May 12
This week, world leaders will gather to consider crucial next steps in the global covid-19 response. We applaud the co-hosts of the Second Global Covid-19 Summit – the United States, Belize, Germany, Indonesia and Senegal – for bringing together governments from across the globe to make concrete commitments to vaccinate the world, save lives now and build better health security.
Recent WHO estimates show the death toll associated with covid-19 in 2020 and 2021 was just under 15 million, a sobering reminder of the human cost of this pandemic. With reported cases falling globally, it is tempting – but misguided – to think the crisis is over. This is the moment to intensify efforts, not to ease off. This summit gives leaders the opportunity to write the closing chapters of the pandemic – an opportunity they cannot afford to miss.
It is imperative that leaders seize this opportunity to mobilize the funding and political will required to achieve global targets for covid-19 vaccination coverage, testing rates and access to treatments, including oral antivirals and oxygen. Achieving these targets is essential to ending the pandemic, by reducing transmission and protecting everyone from the harms of covid-19.

Biden orders flags half staff to commemorate the loss of one million Americans in ‘covid’ pandemic | added May 12
President Biden marked the loss of 1 million Americans to the covid-19 pandemic Thursday. Biden released a written statement Thursday morning and is expected to issue a presidential proclamation ordering flags to half-staff later in the day. The milestone comes the same day that Biden is scheduled to lead the 2nd global covid-19 summit.
“Today, we mark a tragic milestone: one million American lives lost to covid-19. One million empty chairs around the dinner table. Each an irreplaceable loss. Each leaving behind a family, a community, and a nation forever changed because of this pandemic,” Biden wrote. “Jill and I pray for each of them.”
Biden went on to urge Congress to sustain funding for additional covid-19 tests, vaccines and treatments. “May God bless the one million American lives lost and their loved ones left behind,” he concluded.

High concern over University of North Carolina’s fluoride water experiment on infants in low income communities | added May 12
EXETER, N.H., May 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — A University of North Carolina (UNC) dentist is recruiting infants from Lenoir County, NC, for an experiment exposing them to fluoride, which has been shown in dozens of studies to lower IQ, according to the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).
The study, named waterBEST and led by dental researcher Dr. Gary Slade, would give bottled water with fluoride to infants starting at age 3–6 months and continuing to age 4 years. It is intended to test whether fluoridated water reduces cavities. The study’s Informed Consent document, that parents must sign, fails to mention the risk of lowered IQ.
National Institute for Health guidelines for human medical experimentation require that participants be fully informed of risks, and that risks do not outweigh potential benefits. FAN detailed how the waterBEST study violates these requirements in a formal Letter of Concern to the UNC Institutional Review Board (IRB) that is responsible for monitoring the ethics of human research.
Some Maine school districts bring back mask mandates and remote learning as ‘covid’ cases rise | added May 12
PORTLAND (WGME) – Some Maine school districts are making changes amid a rising number of covid-19 cases. All students, staff and visitors at Portland Public Schools will be required to wear a mask indoors and on school buses starting on Thursday, according to Superintendent Xavier Botana.
Botana says they decided to bring back masks based on rising covid-19 cases and CDC recommendations. “We’ve been very clear since the beginning that we would follow the guidance that we receive from our medical team,” Botana said.
Portland schools are doubling down on the basics too. That means stay home if you are feeling sick. Covid cases have also been on a rise at the private school Waynflete in Portland’s West End. They had 55 new cases last week compared to the 10 cases they had the entire first semester. They will be delaying performances, bringing back a mask mandate, and moving more activities outdoors.

‘Covid’ shots for kids won’t have to meet 50 percent efficacy for EUA, says FDA official | added May 11
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) top vaccine official told a congressional committee on Friday that covid-19 vaccines for kids under 6 will not have to meet the agency’s 50% efficacy threshold required to obtain Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
The FDA is reviewing data from Moderna’s two-shot vaccine for infants and toddlers 6 months to 2 years old, and for children 2 to 6 years old. The agency is awaiting data on Pfizer and BioNTech’s three-dose regimen for children under age 5 after two doses of its pediatric vaccine failed to trigger an immune response in 2-, 3- and 4-year-olds comparable to the response generated in teens and adults.
According to Endpoints News, Dr. Peter Marks, director of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research at the FDA, told the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis the agency would not withhold authorization of a pediatric vaccine if it fails to meet the agency’s 50% efficacy threshold for blocking symptomatic infections.
‘Covid’ deaths growing among vaxed, boosters shots still recommended to fight disease | added May 11
Since covid-19 vaccines became widely available, there has been a wide gap in deaths between the vaccinated and unvaccinated. But recent covid deaths are much more evenly split as highly transmissible variants take hold, vaccine protection wanes and booster uptake stagnates.
Breakthrough infections have become more common in recent months, putting vulnerable populations at increased risk of severe disease or death as more and more transmissible variants continue to spread. This seems to be especially true for seniors in the United States, who were among the first to get their initial vaccine series.
In the second half of September — the height of the Delta wave — less than a quarter of all covid-19 deaths were among vaccinated people, federal data shows. But in January and February, amid the omicron surge, more than 40% of covid-19 deaths were among vaccinated people.
Oligarch Bill Gates tests positive for ‘covid’ with mild symptoms, “fortunate to be vaxed and boosted” | added May 11

Teams enter Shanghai residents’ homes to ‘disinfect’ amid tense “zero-covid policy” | added May 11
BEIJING (AP) — The city of Shanghai is doubling down on pandemic restrictions after a brief period of loosening up, frustrating residents who were hoping a more than monthlong lockdown was finally easing as the number of new cases falls in China’s financial center.
On Tuesday, service was suspended on the last two subway lines that were still operating, marking the first time the city’s entire system has been shut down, according to The Paper, an online media outlet.
Teams in white protective suits have begun entering the homes of coronavirus-infected people to spray disinfectant, prompting worries among some about damage to clothes and valuables, and about leaving their keys with a community volunteer when they are taken to quarantine — a new requirement so disinfectant workers can get in.
Historic ruling bans major tech company from selling massive collection of face recognition images | added May 11
Facial recognition startup Clearview AI has agreed to restrict the sale of its massive collection of face images to settle allegations that it collected people’s photos without their consent. The settlement was reached in a case alleging the company violated Illinois’s Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), considered the strongest data privacy law in the country.
The company in a legal filing Monday agreed to permanently stop selling access to its face database to private businesses or individuals around the U.S., putting a limit on what it can do with its ever-growing trove of billions of images pulled from social media and elsewhere on the internet.
The settlement — which must be approved by a county judge in Chicago — will end a 2-year-old lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups over alleged violations of Illinois’ data privacy law.

A moratorium on mRNA ‘vaccines’ is needed | added May 11
“Do you remember when public health and government officials assured everyone that the mRNA ‘vaccines’ function like traditional vaccine technologies? …meaning that they largely remain in the shoulder muscle where they are injected, with some portion going to the draining lymph nodes where an immune response is initiated.”… Now take a closer look at Pfizer’s full report of the biodistribution study with the expert guidance of vaccinologist, Dr. Bridle.
Well, back in May 2021, I, along with some international colleagues, looked at a document that Pfizer had submitted to the Japanese health regulatory agency. It was a pre-clinical biodistribution study. This means it was an experiment done with an animal model to predict where the vaccine formulation might go when injected into people.
What I saw was startling. Most of Pfizer’s vaccine spread throughout the body instead of staying at the injection site. This also meant there was the potential for toxicities that would never occur with traditional vaccines that largely remain at or close to the injection site. To ensure people could make a fully informed decision about whether to take the jab I went public with this information in a radio interview.
Call to action: Support HR419, no taxpayer funding for the WHO | added May 11
Did you know that a declaration of public health emergency by someone at the World Health Organization could be used by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to justify detaining and examining Americans suspected of being ill, even without the declaration of an emergency under U.S. law?
The CDC updated regulations for quarantine on the last day of the Obama administration (2017) to add a definition of public health emergency. The term was not defined in the law passed by Congress, even though the law authorized the Secretary of Health and Human Services to declare an emergency. It’s not unreasonable that a regulation defined a term yet to be determined under law. But what is deeply troubling is that the definition expanded to include declarations by unelected officials in an international organization.
In response to alarmed commenters in the Federal Register, the CDC defended itself: “We note first that the definition of public health emergency is not limited to those emergencies declared by the HHS Secretary.” Who else would declare a public health emergency in the United States other than the Secretary of HHS as designated by Congress?
Why an unlawful ‘covid’ vax mandate may not happen for NYC school children in the near future | added May 11
Teachers at New York City public schools are required to be vaccinated against covid-19. Children involved in after-school activities that have a higher risk of spreading the virus — including many sports, as well as chorus and band — must be vaccinated, too.
But while New York City Mayor Eric Adams and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul have both said they support making covid vaccination for all public school children mandatory, that does not necessarily mean it is happening soon. Momentum on the issue, both in New York and across the country, has stalled, lawmakers and experts say.
In part, this is because the F.D.A. has not yet granted full approval to a covid-19 vaccine for children under 16. Another problem is the disappointing efficacy of the current Pfizer vaccine against preventing infection in children under 12. (The F.D.A. has granted emergency authorization for children 5 to 16.)

Twenty attorneys general threaten legal action if Biden administration does not disband “Orwellian” Disinformation Governance Board | added May 10
Attorneys general (AGs) in 20 states last week threatened legal action unless the Biden administration immediately disbands its newly formed Disinformation Governance Board, which the group described as “Orwellian.”
In a May 5 letter to U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, the AGs demanded DHS “cease all efforts to police Americans’ protected speech.”
“The Disinformation Governance Board, by its very existence, and almost certainly by design, threatens to ‘enforce silence’ when Americans wish to express views disfavored by the Administration.
“It is therefore already chilling free speech and impeding the political process in Virginia and every other State. This is unconstitutional, illegal, and un-American.”

FDA admits Americans should start treating ‘covid’ like the flu | added May 10
Several top Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials, including Commissioner Robert Califf, admitted that Americans will now have to accept covid-19 as another respiratory virus, comparing it to influenza.
Califf, Principal Deputy Commissioner Janet Woodcock, and top vaccine official Dr. Peter Marks wrote for the Journal of the American Medical Association that covid-19 will be around for the foreseeable future while suggesting that it will require yearly vaccines targeting the most threatening variations of the virus.
“Widespread vaccine- and infection-induced immunity, combined with the availability of effective therapeutics, could blunt the effects of future outbreaks,” the officials said, referring to another name for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. “Nonetheless, it is time to accept that the presence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes covid-19, is the new normal.”
Israeli study shows a 25 percent increase in emergency heart disorders among “fully vaxed” young adults | added May 10
In 2021, the government of Israel colluded with Pfizer to oppress the Israeli population with vaccine passports, segregation, deprivation of rights and unlawful detainment. After forcefully experimenting on the population with multiple doses of spike protein mRNA, the Israeli government ultimately caused great suffering and death, while infections continued to surge in the vaccinated.
The latest data out of Israel shows that the covid-19 vaccination was “significantly associated” with a 25 percent spike in emergency medical services for heart problems in young adults (16-39 years old). The 2021 EMS data was compared to years 2020 and 2019 and was peer-reviewed by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
The study investigated a unique data-set from Israel’s National Emergency Medical Services (EMS). The data set includes cardiac arrest and acute coronary syndrome EMS calls for ages 16-39 for the years 2019, 2020 and 2021. Using negative binomial regression models, the study found that weekly emergency call counts were significantly associated with the administration of the first and especially the second covid vaccines.

Predominantly black historic college to shut its door due to ‘covid’ economic hardships and cyber attacks | added May 10
After more than 150 years, Lincoln College in central Illinois is closing its doors after significant challenges from covid-19 and complications stemming from a recent cyberattack.
The college is a predominantly Black institution, as designated by the U.S. Department of Education, and according to the Lincoln Heritage Museum, was the only college named for Abraham Lincoln while he was still living. It opened in 1865.
“Lincoln College has survived many difficult and challenging times — the economic crisis of 1887, a major campus fire in 1912, the Spanish flu of 1918, the Great Depression, World War II, the 2008 global financial crisis, and more, but this is different,” part of a statement posted to Lincoln College’s website read.
Major retailers begin rationing baby formula amid U.S. shortage | added May 10
Major retailers in the US have begun rationing baby formula amid soaring out-of-stock rates, according to media reports on Sunday. Some pharmacies and supermarkets are limiting shoppers to three infant and toddler formula products per purchase in stores and online, USA Today says, quoting the retailers.
“Due to increased demand and various supplier challenges, infant and toddler formulas are seeing constraint across the country,” the publication quotes Walgreens Boots Alliance spokesman Steve Cohen as saying.
Between November and April, the out-of-stock rate for baby formula – a manufactured breast milk substitute made mostly from cow milk – jumped from single digits to nearly 40% nationwide and even exceeded 50% in some states, according to the latest figures from market data analysis company Datasembly.

‘Fully vaxed and boosted’ Governor Kathy Hochul tests positive for ‘covid’ with no symptoms | added May 9
NEW YORK — New York Gov. Kathy Hochul tested positive for covid-19 on Sunday, saying she will isolate and work remotely this week. “Thankfully, I’m vaccinated and boosted, and I’m asymptomatic,” Hochul, 63, tweeted. “A reminder to all New Yorkers: get vaccinated and boosted, get tested, and stay home if you don’t feel well.”
A day earlier, the Democratic governor had tweeted a photo from the Olana State Historic Site outside Hudson, New York, which she visited to thank park volunteers.
Hochul is at least the 18th U.S. governor to test positive for covid-19, according to an Associated Press tally. Several U.S. governors have tested positive in recent months, with Connecticut’s Ned Lamont and Maine’s Janet Mills testing positive in April. New York City Mayor Eric Adams tested positive on April 10, his 100th day in office.
Officials fear a repeat HIV crisis as poor nations seek expensive anti-viral ‘covid’ pills | added May 9
WASHINGTON — A devastating virus was laying waste to nations that lacked medicines available to Americans. The pills were patented and pricey. Poor countries lacked refrigeration to store them, the thinking went, and patients would not be able to follow the complex dosing regimen.
The year was 2002, the virus was H.I.V., and the president, George W. Bush, secretly sent his top health advisers to Africa to investigate what activists were calling “medical apartheid.” In the 20 years since, the United States has led the way in building a global infrastructure for H.I.V. testing and treatment, saving an estimated 21 million lives.
Now, with that history in mind, global health agencies and the Biden administration are working to bring coronavirus tests and expensive antiviral pills to low- and middle-income nations. This week, President Biden will emphasize “global test to treat” at his second international covid-19 summit, a virtual gathering of world leaders aimed at injecting new energy into the international pandemic response.
‘Covid’ shot contributes to man’s devastating and unexpected death | added May 9
On their website, The Centers for Disease Control representatives say that they are monitoring the safety of the covid-19 vaccine more than any other immunization in history. There are some very rare but concerning side effects.
Joseph’s parents Bill and Caleen Keating say they are still coming to terms with the fact that they lost their son, who was trying to stay safe in the midst of the pandemic.
Lawsuit filed against President Biden and other top officials for censoring Hunter, ‘covid’ related data | added May 9
Two GOP-led states filed a lawsuit against President Biden, White House press secretary Jen Psaki, Dr. Anthony Fauci and other top administration officials alleging that they “pressured and colluded” with Big Tech social media companies to censor and suppress information on the Hunter Biden laptop story, covid-19 origins and security of voting by mail during the pandemic.
Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry filed the lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana. The suit accuses top ranking government officials of working with the giant social media companies Meta, Twitter and YouTube “under the guise of combating misinformation” in order to achieve greater censorship.
The lawsuit names Nina Jankowicz, the head of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) new “Disinformation Governance Board,” which has received severe backlash from both Democratic and Republican lawmakers for limiting free speech.
Senator Ron Johnson demands CDC explain why it tracked Americans during ‘covid’ pandemic | added May 9
WASHINGTON — Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson is calling on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to address why it tracked Americans throughout the coronavirus pandemic — and what other departments may have tracked the movements of United States citizens as well.
“It remains unclear why the CDC tracked millions of Americans during the pandemic and whether it continues to do so,” Johnson told the CDC in a Thursday letter first obtained by The Daily Wire. “In response to covid-19, the CDC should have been prioritizing the development of treatments, effective testing, and vaccine safety rather than tracking Americans’ daily lives.”
Johnson called on the CDC to explain if its use of location data was “the only mechanism it employed to monitor Americans during the pandemic,” which official or officials at the CDC approved the “use and subsequent purchase of location data,” what companies supplied the CDC with this data, and whether the CDC shared this location data with any other federal, state, or local agencies.
Ireland’s government considered mass dystopian surveillance system to combat the ‘covid’ pandemic, upcoming book reveals | added May 9
In an effort to combat the coronavirus, Ireland’s government considered a “dystopian surveillance system,” that could have included the monitoring of phone, CCTV, and financial transactions, an upcoming book will reveal.
An upcoming book, titled “Pandemonium: Power, Politics and Ireland’s Pandemic,” by journalists Jack Horgan-Jone of the Irish Times and Hugh O’Connell of the Irish Independent, will reveal, among other things, that the government considered a dystopian surveillance system to fight the pandemic.
The book describes the plan as “Orwellian,” considering it violation of privacy just to make sure the Irish people obeyed the nation’s covid measures, which were, at time, the strictest in the globe. “What emerged was an almost Orwellian plan, bizarrely dubbed 1 Government Centre (1GC),” the book says.
Here’s why the ‘covid’ military medical mandates are illegal | added May 9
The covid-19 vaccines granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are voluntary products that cannot be administered to military personnel and civilians without informed consent.
In the military, this voluntary consent requirement for investigational drugs was upheld in the anthrax vaccine case, Doe v Rumsfeld (2003), which determined that in the absence of a presidential waiver, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) can legally mandate vaccines only if they are FDA-approved.
The voluntary consent requirement for covid-19 EUA vaccines remains in place, despite false reports that the currently available EUA Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna products have a Biologics License Application (BLA) and are FDA-approved. Comirnaty had an expired marketing date on the FDA-approved BLA when the DOD mandated it, and Pfizer is not distributing Comirnaty in the U.S.
Revelation of the information war method | added May 9
CIA Director, William Casey is reputed to have said to Ronald Reagan ‘We’ll know our disinformation is complete when everything the American public believes is false.’
Fast forward thirty years, and there’s no piece of fiction the masses will not swallow. From Woke to covid to the war in Ukraine, people no longer make their own ideological pilgrimages to the truth – the truth is served oven-ready by their political betters.
Nowadays, there’s little distinction between the two hemispheres: reality and illusion. It’s not so much that people have been robbed of their ability to decipher between these two, it’s that facts have been reoriented into fiction and fiction into facts. It’s a degradation of epistemology so momentous, that people don’t even know that they don’t know that they don’t know what’s happening. To quote one former anarchist.
Let’s not forget… the science says masks are killing our environments by contaminating the waters with lead, nanoplastics, antimony, and copper to name a few. Why are people not concerned about our planet becoming diseased? Antimony for instance has been shown to cause lung and heart disorders. Read more here on Science Daily.

University of Michigan prepares for Fauci’s arrival amid planned protests against medical mandates | added May 7
The nation’s top medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, is the featured speaker next week at a University of Michigan commencement, prompting mixed feelings among some graduates and a planned protest.
U-M is hosting two commencement ceremonies this year at Michigan Stadium: Maria Shriver, a journalist and former first lady of California, will speak Saturday to this year’s graduates, while Fauci will address a May 7 “comeback ceremony” for 2020 and 2021 graduates whose commencements were curtailed due to the pandemic.
Rick Fitzgerald, a U-M spokesperson, said the university is aware of the planned Fauci protest and will take measures to ensure the commencement is safe but would not discuss them “because to do so would make the event less secure.”
Willie Nelson, Melissa Etheridge cancel New Orleans Jazz Fest due to band members testing positive for ‘covid’ | added May 7
NEW ORLEANS — Willie Nelson is cancelling an upcoming performance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage festival and postponing other shows after a positive case of the coronavirus in his band.
The 89-year-old musician posted on his band’s website on Friday that “due to a positive covid case in the Willie Nelson Family Band” two upcoming shows scheduled to happen May 6 and May 7 would be postponed and that Nelson’s Sunday performance at Jazz Fest would be cancelled.
Nelson was slated to close the Gentilly Stage — the same stage where his son Lukas Nelson is performing earlier in the day with his band the Promise of the Real. No replacement for the elder Nelson has yet been announced.
What do the newly released Pfizer ‘covid’ files really tell us? | added May 7
The latest batch of Pfizer’s covid vaccine files just dropped. 80,000 pages of patient files and “trial data” and so and so on. You can read them all here. The question is, do they really tell us anything we don’t already know?
The big revelation doing the rounds at the minute is that the vaccines were never trialled with, and were specifically not recommended for, pregnant women.
But is this new information? When governments started “recommending” the covid vaccine to pregnant women in the Summer of 2021, everybody who had been paying attention knew that position was not backed up by any data at all. OffG got temporarily banned from twitter for pointing this out.

Under the ‘charity’ guise, Gates Foundation pushes deadly pesticides and GMOs on small farmers in Africa | added May 7
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) spent about $6 billion on agriculture over the past 17 years. The money was earmarked to help small farmers in Africa and the rest of the global south.
Instead, the money wound up in the hands of institutions in the U.S. and Europe, according to “Money,” the third video in the three-part series “Rich Appetites: How Big Philanthropy Is Shaping the Future of Food in Africa.”
The film series, developed by the Uganda-based Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa (AFSA) and AGRA Watch, explains why exporting the U.S. industrial agribusiness model to Africa is a “grave mistake.” The three short films are “Foundations” (covered here), “Seeds” (covered here) and “Money.”
White House warns fall and winter ‘covid’ surge could infect 100 million people | added May 7
Washington (CNN) The Biden administration is issuing a new warning that the US could potentially see 100 million covid-19 infections this fall and winter, as officials publicly stress the need for more funding from Congress to prepare the nation.
The projection of 100 million potential infections is an estimate based on a range of outside models that are being closely tracked by the administration and would include both the fall and winter, a senior administration official told CNN. Officials say this estimate is based on an underlying assumption of no additional resources or extra mitigation measures being taken, including new covid-19 funding from Congress, or dramatic new variants.
The White House is sharing these estimates as officials renew their push to get Congress to approve additional funding to combat the virus and as the nation approaches a coronavirus death toll of 1 million. Officials have said the White House will commemorate the moment when the US surpasses 1 million deaths from covid-19.
“We didn’t understand that covid is kind of like the flu,” says Bill Gates | added May 7
Note his logic: “We didn’t know then that covid’s really just a flu; so it was pretty scary that the world, including the United States, didn’t go on alert nearly as fast as it needed to.” (Not “as fast as we thought it needed to,” but “as fast as it needed to,” suggesting some crossed wires inside “Bill’s brain.”)
And yet, funnily enough, Dr. Fauci, of all people, did know that covid is ‘kind of like flu,” as he noted in February, 2020. So Gates’s “experts” weren’t in touch with Dr. Fauci?
If there’s any justice in the world, this mass-murdering predator (who went to Epstein’s island 37 times) is hiding out, surrounded by his bodyguards, and flinching every time he hears an unexpected noise. And if there’s any justice in the universe, Bill Gates will spend eternity in that condition.
Hollywood modifies medical mandates where locations have “low covid hospitalizations” | added May 7
The entertainment industry’s major studios and guilds modified its covid-19 Safety Agreement, loosening certain requirements in areas such as testing and masking, in parts of the United States and Canada with “low” covid hospital admissions.
The modifications apply only to areas that have confirmed “low” covid hospital admissions — the initial announcement doesn’t specifically identify that threshold — and apply to both vaccinated and unvaccinated cast and crew. According to the announcement, pre-employment testing is still required, but with modifications to the types of tests allowed.
Testing will still be required on a weekly basis during production for Zones A and B, but reduced in frequency. And masking will not be required in “most” settings, with an exception being in shuttle vans.
Jimmy Dore weighs in on the pandemic among the ‘covid’ vaxed | added May 7
Since the advent of the omicron variant, an ever increasing percentage of the deaths from covid in the United States have been among the vaccinated. It’s funny how “scientific data” has been compiled for a virus that has not been proven to exist.

FDA restricts J&J ‘covid’ shot after reassessing the data on increased risk of blood clots | added May 6
U.S. regulators on Thursday strictly limited who can receive Johnson & Johnson’s covid-19 vaccine due to the ongoing risk of rare but serious blood clots.
The Food and Drug Administration said the shot should only be given to adults who cannot receive a different vaccine or specifically request J&J’s vaccine. U.S. authorities for months have recommended that Americans starting their covid-19 vaccinations use the Pfizer or Moderna shots instead.
FDA officials said in a statement that they decided to restrict J&J’s vaccine after taking another look at data on the risk of life-threatening blood clots within two weeks of vaccination. In December, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended prioritizing Moderna and Pfizer shots over J&J’s because of its safety issues. Previously, U.S. officials had treated all three vaccines similarly because they’d each been shown to offer strong protection.
FDA rebukes Pfizer’s advice to keep taking anti-viral pills if patients experience a ‘covid’ relapse | added May 6
The FDA rebuked Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla’s proposed solution to reports that some patients experienced a relapse of covid-19 symptoms after treatment with the company’s antiviral Paxlovid.
After reports said some patients who took Paxlovid rebounded and started feeling symptoms again, the CEO told Bloomberg that patients can take another course, “like you do with antibiotics.” “Paxlovid does what it has to do: It reduces the viral load,” Bourla, Ph.D., told Bloomberg in an interview. “Then your body is supposed to do the job.”
The FDA isn’t on board with the suggestion. “There is no evidence of benefit at this time for a longer course of treatment … or repeating a treatment course of Paxlovid in patients with recurrent covid-19 symptoms following completion of a treatment course,” John Farley, M.D., director of the Office of Infectious Diseases, said in a post.
NIH investigates why patients rebound after taking Pfizer’s anti-viral ‘covid’ pill, Paxlovid | added May 6
National Institutes of Health (NIH) researchers said they will investigate how often and why coronavirus levels rebound in some patients who complete a five-day course of Pfizer’s covid-19 antiviral pill, Paxlovid.
“It is a priority,” Clifford Lane, deputy director for clinical research at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told Bloomberg. It’s “a pretty urgent thing for us to get a handle on.” Lane said the agency is discussing with scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention possible epidemiological and clinical studies to examine post-Paxlovid rebound.
In response to reports of patients relapsing after taking Paxlovid, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla on Tuesday suggested they take more of the treatment, contrary to the established protocol. Bourla’s comment prompted a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) official on Wednesday to contradict Bourla, FiercePharma reported.
“Uniting NYS” Attorney, Bobbie Anne Flower Cox discusses suing New York Gov. Hochul on illegal medical mandates | added May 6
Attorney Bobbie Anne Flower Cox is interviewed by Steve Gruber, host of Real America’s Voice, to discuss her groundbreaking lawsuit to stop quarantine camps.
The ILLEGAL “regulation” that New York Governor and her Department of Health created gives them the power to force people to isolate or quarantine:
– wherever they say (which can include a quarantine detention center)
– for however long they want
– and they don’t even have to prove that you actually have a disease or pose a health threat!
So, Attorney Bobbie Anne Flower Cox is suing New York Governor Kathy Hochul, DOH Commissioner Bassett, the Department of Health, and the Public Health & Health Planning Council on behalf of the citizens’ group, Uniting NYS, together with NYS Senator George Borrello, Assemblyman Mike Lawler, and Assemblyman Chris Tague.
New study suggests Moderna predicted a pandemic among the ‘covid’ vaccinated | added May 6
A new study suggests recipients of Moderna’s covid-19 vaccine may be more likely to suffer repeated infections, perhaps indefinitely. The study, still in preprint, found participants in Moderna’s adult trial who received the vaccine, and later were exposed to the virus, did not generate antibodies to a key component of the virus as often as did those in the placebo group.
The authors’ findings, which are corroborated by U.K. data that demonstrate the rates of infection are significantly higher in the vaccinated, suggest Moderna knew of this safety signal in 2020 when the vaccine maker was conducting its trials. The authors of “Anti-nucleocapsid antibodies following SARS-CoV-2 infection in the blinded phase of the mRNA-1273 Covid-19 vaccine efficacy clinical trial“ wrote:
“Among participants with PCR-confirmed covid-19 illness, seroconversion to anti-N Abs at a median follow up of 53 days post diagnosis occurred in 21/52 (40%) of the mRNA-1273 vaccine recipients vs. 605/648 (93%) of the placebo recipients (p < 0.001).”
CDC tracked millions of Americans to ensure they complied with ‘covid’ lock downs | added May 6
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) bought access to location data harvested from tens of millions of phones in the United States to perform analysis of compliance with curfews, track patterns of people visiting K-12 schools, and specifically monitor the effectiveness of policy in the Navajo Nation, according to CDC documents obtained by Motherboard.
The documents also show that although the CDC used covid-19 as a reason to buy access to the data more quickly, it intended to use it for more-general CDC purposes. Location data is information on a device’s location sourced from the phone, which can then show where a person lives, works, and where they went.
The sort of data the CDC bought was aggregated—meaning it was designed to follow trends that emerge from the movements of groups of people—but researchers have repeatedly raised concerns with how location data can be deanonymized and used to track specific people. The documents reveal the expansive plan the CDC had last year to use location data from a highly controversial data broker.
April 26 – May 2: In memory of all those who died suddenly in Asia | added May 6
A passer-by collapsed and died on the sidewalk in Berdsk on May 1.
May 2, 2022 — The tragedy occurred in Berdsk on May 1. At house number 92 on the street. Krasnoarmeiskaya died an elderly Berdchanka, who was dressed in red. It is reported by Berdsk-Online with reference to AvtoBerdsk. Passers-by, who became unwitting witnesses to the death, called the police and doctors to the scene of the emergency. It turned out that the deceased was walking from the side of the street Rogacheva and suddenly fell on the sidewalk. The true cause of death will be determined soon.
May 2, 2022 — A man died in an accident on the Yalta-Sevastopol highway, the Ministry of Internal Affairs reported. According to the agency, on May 2, at about 15:15, a man was driving from Sevastopol towards Yalta in a ZAZ Lanos car. Suddenly, he drove into the lane of oncoming traffic, where he collided with a Nissan car, which was moving along its lane to Sevastopol.
Xi Jinping warns critics of “zero covid-policy” as China enforces strict medical mandates | added May 6
Xi Jinping has confirmed there is no intention to turn away from China’s zero-covid commitment, in a major speech to the country’s senior officials that also warned against any criticism or doubting of the policy.
Addressing the seven-member politburo standing committee, China’s highest decision-making body, specifically about the Shanghai outbreak, the president said China’s response was “scientific and effective”. He told officials to “unswervingly adhere to the general policy of dynamic zero-covid”.
“We have won the battle to defend Wuhan, and we will certainly be able to win the battle to defend Shanghai,” he said, according to a translation by Sinocism’s Bill Bishop.

European Commission announces it will ban thousands of toxic chemicals for “zero-pollution goal” | added May 4
Thousands of the most notorious chemicals will be rapidly banned in Europe, the European Commission announced last week, as part of the zero-pollution goal in the European Union’s (EU) Green Deal.
The European Environmental Bureau (EEB) welcomed the move. If implemented, the action will be the largest-ever regulatory removal of authorized chemicals anywhere and covers chemicals that environmental, consumer and health groups have fought against for decades.
The plan announced today, called the Restrictions Roadmap, is a political commitment to use existing laws to ban all flame retardants, chemicals that are frequently linked to cancer, and all bisphenols, widely used in plastics but which disrupt human hormones.
Moderna’s mRNA ‘covid’ sales triple first quarter profit expectations | added May 4
Moderna sold $5.9 billion of its covid vaccine in the first quarter, blowing out revenue and profit expectations. The biotech company’s shares soared by more than 7% in premarket trading on Wednesday. Moderna maintained its full-year guidance of $21 billion in Covid vaccine sales.
The sales guidance is based on signed agreements with governments and does not include any orders from the U.S., so the final number could come in higher. Moderna’s first-quarter vaccine sales more than tripled over the same period last year, when it reported $1.7 billion in sales shortly after the shots first rolled out.
The covid vaccine for adults ages 18 and over, Spikevax, is the company’s only commercially available product. Moderna reported $3.66 billion in net income for the quarter, a threefold increase over the $1.2 billion it reported in the same period last year.
The seen and unseen detriments of Intellectual Property Laws on medicine | added May 4
Perhaps the greatest lesson to be learned in economics is that public policies have seen and unseen effects. The mastery of such a lesson is what separates the good from the bad economist.
“The bad economist,” writes Henry Hazlitt, “sees only what immediately strikes the eye; the good economist also looks beyond. The bad economist sees only the direct consequences of a proposed course; the good economist looks also at the longer and indirect consequences. The bad economist sees only what the effect of a given policy has been or will be on one particular group; the good economist inquires also what the effect of the policy will be on all groups.”
The same economic reasoning should be applied to intellectual property laws. By joining together not only the seen, but also the unseen consequences of intellectual property laws, we can achieve a solidly ironclad understanding of its impacts on humanity.
Spike in deaths correlated to ‘covid’ shots in Cyprus still not investigated, study concludes | added May 4
Authorities should “comprehensively” investigate a spike in deaths in Cyprus during 2021 that is not explained by covid-19 but occurred concurrently with the vaccination campaign, a study has concluded.
The peer-reviewed study in the journal Cureus analysed information reported by the Cyprus Ministry of Health to the European Statistical Office (Eurostat), which includes weekly all-cause mortality for 2016-2021, and data collected by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control regarding daily reported covid-19 infections and deaths.
The researchers observed an increase of 9.7% in all-cause mortality in Cyprus in 2021 compared to 2020, with an overall mortality increase of 16.5% in 2021 compared to the mean mortality of the previous five years. In particular, they found a sharp increase over the third and fourth quarters of 2021 – see charts above, on which I have highlighted the key areas.
Severe liver damage cases reported after Pfizer BioNTech ‘covid’ shots | added May 4
Effective vaccines are essential to stop the novel coronavirus diseases 2019 (covid-19) pandemic, and administration of over 4 billion vaccine doses since December 2020 is an unprecedented effort. Large-scale vaccination resulted in the discovery of rarer side effects that were previously not reported during clinical trials.
We present 2 cases of drug-induced liver injury (DILI) without features of autoimmune hepatitis after administration of the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA vaccine. A 38-year-old woman with asthma and no prior history of liver disease or allergies received her first dose of the Pfizer BioNTech covid-19 mRNA vaccine on March 4, 2021.
Six days after vaccination, she noted jaundice, tea-colored urine, and generalized itchiness. She denied consumption of alcohol, drugs, over-the-counter medications, or herbal supplements.
Pilot gets ‘covid’ vax and suffers heart attack days after shot | added May 4
Bob Snow, a pilot of 31 years, had no choice but to get the covid vaccine —“Get the shot, or you’re fired,” he was told. Days after the shot, he suffered a heart attack after landing his plane. Due to his condition, he most likely will never be able to fly an aircraft again.
Numerous ‘covid’ positive cases emerge after White House Correspondents’ Dinner | added May 4
A handful of coronavirus cases have emerged among people who attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner over the weekend, the president of the correspondents’ association said on Tuesday.
Steven Portnoy of CBS News Radio, who leads the White House Correspondents’ Association, said the cases he knew of so far numbered in the “single digits.”
Among those who tested positive after the gala — an annual event that skipped two years because of the pandemic — was Steve Herman, a chief national correspondent for Voice of America. Jonathan Karl, ABC News’s chief Washington correspondent, also tested positive, according to a person familiar with the matter.
We need to stop harming our children by indiscriminately testing for ‘covid’ | added May 4
There is a pervasive notion in the United States that doing more to fight any disease is always better. It’s a sentiment that’s only grown during the pandemic. In truth, we live in a world of tradeoffs with downsides to most medical interventions—which means that the ability to test is not always a reason to test.
We do not, for example, regularly test everyone for HIV; it’s clear in that case that the burdens can quickly outweigh the benefits. And yet, while most intuitively understand that we can’t regularly test everyone for every disease, acknowledging that there are tradeoffs is something many seem to be struggling with when it comes to covid-19.
Screening school children for covid-19 is an obvious example of intervention where the harms appear to clearly outweigh the benefits. Screening asymptomatic children for covid-19 whether they have been in contact with someone with covid or not has not been shown to reduce viral spread or improve child or community health. What is has been shown to do is result in unnecessary school days lost and excessive burdens on school districts and working families.
Animal trials of Pfizer, J&J ‘covid’ vax show bioaccumulation of lipid nanoparticles in major organs | added May 3
Judicial Watch today announced it received 466 pages of records from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regarding biodistribution studies and related data for the covid-19 vaccines that show a key component of the vaccines developed by Pfizer/BioNTech, lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), were found outside the injection site, mainly the liver, adrenal glands, spleen and ovaries of test animals, eight to 48 hours after injection.
Pfizer/BioNTech’s mRNA-based covid-19 vaccine relies on LNPs as a delivery system. Pfizer said in a Jan. 10, 2022 press release that Acuitas Therapeutics LNP technology is used in Comirnaty, the Pfizer/BioNTech covid-19 vaccine.
Judicial Watch also received 663 pages of records from HHS regarding biodistribution studies and related data for covid-19 vaccines, which show that Johnson & Johnson relied on studies showing that vaccine DNA particles and injected virus particles were still present in test animals months after injection.
When will NYC’s new nonsensical ‘covid’ risk alarm end for good? | added May 3
When will New York City’s insane covid alarmism end? According to health czar Ashwin Vasant, the city has now reached “medium” risk, per the Centers for Disease Control’s “community levels” metric.
So he wants New Yorkers to exercise “greater caution” in the name of “slowing the spread” — and start wearing masks again indoors in public even if vaccinated. Utter nonsense. Covid deaths in the city are about as low as they’ve ever been, averaging four per day for the past four weeks, while hospitalizations average 46 a day. And both, per the data gathered by the city health authorities, are trending even lower.
Cases are ticking up slightly, but nowhere near the recent peak we saw with the first omicron wave. Also, the whole selling point of the CDC’s new metric was that it supposedly pays more attention to actual bad covid outcomes than raw case numbers. So why all this concern over a modest rise in infections when ultra-low deaths and hospitalizations show the opposite?
New York considered new hot spot for rising ‘covid’ cases, says CDC | added May 3
New York state is now a hot spot for rising covid-19 cases from a variant called BA.2.12.1. The state is home to 37 out of the 54 U.S. counties the Centers for Disease Control says have high levels of community transmission.
“We should be preparing right now for a potential surge this summer across the southern United States, because we saw it in 2020 and we saw it in 2021,” former White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx told “Face the Nation” on Sunday.
“We have to make it very clear to the American people that your protection against infection wanes,” she continued. “So if you’re going to go see your grandmother, or someone that has metastatic breast cancer, or someone under treatment for Hodgkin’s disease, or a family member with Down syndrome, you need to test before you go if that area is in a surge.”
Beijing prepares new hospital facilities for ‘covid’ despite low case numbers | added May 3
Beijing is preparing new hospital facilities to deal with a possible spike in covid-19 cases, even though the numbers of new cases remain low. State media reported Tuesday a 1,000-bed hospital at Xiaotangshan in the northeastern suburbs built for the 2003 SARS outbreak has been refurbished in case it’s needed.
City officials on Saturday also announced they were setting up a 10,000-bed quarantine facility in the sprawling China National Exhibition Center to house those who have tested positive and their close contacts.
However, no more has been said about such plans and the reports have largely disappeared, a possible sign officials are seeking to avoid spreading additional fears in a city already on edge.
Cocktails of pharmaceutical drugs found in fish is contaminating the planet on a massive scale | added May 3
Nicknamed “grey ghosts” for their lustrous silver scales, remarkable stealth and speed, bonefish can swim at up to 40mph. This species, protected by catch-and-release laws in the US, is revered by anglers around the world, many of whom visit Florida to seek the elusive fish.
But evidence points to a steep drop in bonefish numbers in south Florida. Populations have fallen more than 50% over four decades, according to estimates by researchers.
Dr Jennifer Rehage, a fish ecologist and associate professor at Florida International University (FIU), has spoken to many anglers about the fish’s disappearance from Florida’s seagrass flats: “They’ve said to me: ‘I’ve fished [bonefish] all my life and I can’t find them. I haven’t seen a bonefish in five years, and it’s freaking me out’.”
Doctors blame woman’s DNA for Pfizer ‘covid’ vax side effects | added May 3
In a Facebook post on Sunday (Jan 31), the hospital said its doctors have conducted multiple tests on the woman to date. “So far, there is no evidence that her signs and symptoms are related to the vaccine she received recently,” the hospital wrote. “We take a cautious approach and will continue to monitor her condition and conduct tests as needed.”
Ms Lin, who works in the food and beverage industry, said she had felt dizzy after receiving the vaccine, and suffered weakness in her legs. She said she had never experienced any allergies to medication in the past and asked how to apply for the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) vaccine injury financial assistance programme.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris tested negative on Monday for covid-19, six days after she tested positive for the virus, and has been cleared to return to the White House on Tuesday.
Harris press secretary Kirsten Allen said Harris, who was prescribed the antiviral treatment Paxlovid last week, was negative on a rapid antigen test. Allen said Harris would continue to wear a “well-fitting mask while around others” in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines until through her tenth day after her positive test.
CDC guidance allows people to leave isolation on the sixth day after they tested positive, as long as they wear a mask around others. The White House exceeds those guidelines, requiring a negative rapid test before people who have been infected are allowed to return to the complex.
CDC hesitant of fourth ‘covid’ jab efficacy despite FDA approval | added May 3
Countries are beginning to offer a fourth dose of the covid-19 vaccine to vulnerable groups, but medical professionals are undecided on whether it would benefit the wider population.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has so far authorized a fourth shot only for those aged 50 and above, as well as those who are immunocompromised. And the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was skeptical of the need for a fourth dose for healthy adults in the absence of a clearer public health strategy.
Those decisions came as a study from Israel found that although a fourth dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine offers protection against serious illness for at least six weeks after the shot, it provides only short-lived protection against infection, which wanes after just four weeks.
International Energy Agency demands worldwide lockdowns to alleviate climate crisis | added May 3
To be blunt, the ordinary, hardworking man and woman is being brainwashed to believe that the planet is heading for disaster, it is their fault, and they must change their behaviour in order to save the world. But this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Humanity could most certainly be kinder to nature and the other living things that inhabit Earth, but the argument that the world will essentially end as we know it if we don’t get to carbon zero by the year 2050 or earlier is propaganda. It is a tool being used by the elites to shape the future through fear, just as they have done with the alleged covid-19 crisis, and as they are now doing with the war in Ukraine.
One example of this lie is that ordinary men and women are the reason plastic is polluting our seas. As you’ll have now encountered if you’ve visited a Mcdonalds, you are now forced to use one of the worst inventions ever to grace our planet – the paper straw.

‘Covid’ deaths no longer highest among unvaxed as elderly toll rises | added May 2
WASHINGTON — Unvaccinated individuals accounted for the overwhelming majority of deaths within the United States all through a lot of the coronavirus pandemic. But that has modified in latest months, based on a Washington Post evaluation of state and federal knowledge.
The pandemic’s toll is no longer falling virtually solely on those that selected to not get photographs, with vaccine safety waning over time and the elderly and immunocompromised – who’re at best threat of succumbing to covid-19, even when vaccinated – having a tougher time dodging more and more contagious strains.
The vaccinated made up 42% of fatalities in January and February through the extremely contagious omicron variant’s surge, in contrast with 23% of the useless in September, the height of the delta wave, based on nationwide knowledge from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed by The Post. The knowledge relies on the date of an infection and restricted to a sampling of circumstances through which vaccination standing was identified.
United Kingdom’s General Medical Council updates “Hippocratic Oath” to restrict doctors from spreading ‘misinformation’ | added May 2
The UK’s General Medical Council has updated the Hippocratic Oath to reflect current censorial times. The updated draft will prohibit doctors from spreading “misinformation” online. “Good medical practice is the bedrock that helps guide ethical practice and supports doctors to provide the best possible care in a world of increasingly complex medicine,” said GMC’s CEO Charlie Massey via The Telegraph.
“There is a lot of evidence of the damage bad workplace cultures can do to patient safety and, ultimately, to the UK’s ability to retain the healthcare professionals it needs. “Toxic cultures can also spread online, undermining public trust in the medical profession.”
“We’ve had feedback that doctors want more clarity on using social media. We are already clear that doctors must be honest and trustworthy in their communications, and are now emphasizing that this applies to all forms of communication. The principles remain the same whether the communication is written, spoken or via social media,” he added.
Amazon cuts ‘covid’ paid leave for workers who test positive | added May 2
Amazon is cutting paid time off for front-line U.S. workers who test positive for covid-19, effective Monday. All U.S.-based Amazon workers who test positive for covid-19 will now get up to five days of excused, unpaid leave, the company told workers in a notice sent Saturday. A spokesperson told CNBC workers are still able to use their sick time off if needed.
In Saturday’s notice, Amazon added that workers waiting for covid test results will no longer have time off excused since rapid tests are now widely available.
The e-commerce giant has slowly pulled back its covid policies as vaccines have become more widely available and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention changed its guidance. The company initially offered up to two weeks of paid time off for any employees diagnosed with covid-19 or placed into quarantine. In January, the company reduced paid leave time to one week, or up to 40 hours.
Oligarch Bill Gates warns ‘covid’ pandemic is “far from over” | added May 2
The coronavirus pandemic is far from over, Bill Gates has warned, saying there could still be a variant which is “even more transmissive and even more fatal”.
“We haven’t even seen the worst of it,” he said in an interview. While not wanting to be a “voice of doom and gloom”, the risk of a more virulent variant emerging is “way above 5%”, the Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist told the Financial Times.
“We’re still at risk of this pandemic generating a variant that would be even more transmissive and even more fatal,” he said, adding that longer-lasting vaccines which block infection are urgently required.
Tourists rejoice as Italy and Greece ease ‘covid’ restrictions before Europe’s peak travel season | added May 2
ROME (AP) — For travelers heading to Europe, summer vacations just got a whole lot easier. Italy and Greece relaxed some covid-19 restrictions on Sunday before Europe’s peak summer tourist season, in a sign that life was increasingly returning to normal.
Greece’s civil aviation authority announced that it was lifting all covid-19 rules for international and domestic flights except for the wearing of face masks during flights and at airports. Previously, air travelers were required to show proof of vaccination, a negative test or a recent recovery from the disease.
As of Sunday, visitors to Italy no longer have to fill out the EU passenger locator form, a complicated online ordeal required at airport check-in.
U.S. should prepare for a summer surge of ‘covid’, according to former White House health coordinator Dr. Birx | added May 2
The US should prepare for a possible summer surge of covid-19 cases across Southern states, former White House Coronavirus Response Task Force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx told CBS on Sunday morning.
It’s now predictable that the South will see surges in the summer and Northern states will see surges in the winter — especially around the holidays, Birx said. Birx said she closely follows data out of South Africa, which has recently seen a rise in new covid-19 cases.
“Each of these surges are about four to six months apart. That tells me that natural immunity wanes enough in the general population after four to six months — that a significant surge is going to occur again,” Birx told “Face the Nation.”
CDC published new quarantine and isolation rule during last days of Obama administration | added May 2
On the last day of the Obama administration, the CDC quietly published a new set of rules that can force travelers into quarantine or isolation if they are suspected of contracting a contagious disease.
The rules were released under the Federal Registrar on the last day of the Obama Administration, 1/19/2017, and took effect on February 21, 2017. Despite public concern that the new rules would introduce forced vaccination practices, the CDC insisted it would not “compel vaccination or medical treatment.”
Many public comments expressed concern that these updated regulations sought to compel medical treatment or vaccination without patient consent…HHS/CDC does not seek to compel vaccination or medical treatment. In keeping with current practice, HHS/CDC recommends certain vaccines for post-exposure prophylaxis and individuals may choose to follow these recommendations as they deem appropriate.
China’s strict no ‘covid’ policy hits economy hard from Teslas to tacos | added May 2
When Tesla’s Shanghai plant and other auto factories were shut over the last two months by emergency measures to control China’s biggest covid-19 outbreak, the burning question was how quickly they could restart to meet surging demand.
But with the Shanghai lockdown grinding into its fourth week, and similar measures imposed in dozens of smaller cities, the world’s largest boom market for electric cars has gone bust. Other companies from luxury goods makers to fast-food restaurants have also offered a first read on the lost sales and shaken confidence of recent weeks, even as Beijing rolls out measures to help covid-hit industries and stimulate demand.
Joey Wat, CEO of Yum China which owns KFC and Taco Bell, said in a letter to investors that April sales had been “significantly impacted” by covid controls. In response, the company simplified its menu, streamlined staffing and promoted bulk orders for locked-down communities, she said.
Corporations reap record breaking profits as inflation prices continue to rise | added May 2
As inflationary pressure drives up costs throughout the economy, a new analysis out Wednesday reveals that corporations are raking in record profits by jacking up prices at the grocery store, gas pump and beyond — hurting consumers while rewarding investors.
The Guardian, which examined Securities and Exchange Commission filings for 100 U.S. companies, found that net profits increased by a median of 49% from the first quarter of 2020 to the first quarter of this year. Over the same time period, workers’ wages grew by just 1.6%.
These corporations have boosted their profit margins over the past two years by charging more for food, fuel, housing and other basics — using inflation as a pretext to raise prices, negating the modest wage gains that workers made during the coronavirus pandemic. All but 10 have engaged in stock buybacks or dividend bumps to enrich shareholders.
