Australian ‘health chief’ tells people not to go out and avoid NYE celebrations | added December 31
NSW health chief Dr Kerry Chant has begged Sydneysiders to stay home and avoid New Year’s Eve parties if they have Covid symptoms after the state recorded 21,151 new cases of COVID-19.
‘If you have the mildest of symptoms, I am asking you to stay home, watch the celebrations on TV – just don’t go out,’ Dr Chant said.
One in seven of all tests in the state over the past 24 hours came back positive as the disease spreads through the community like wildfire. NSW has recorded 21,151 new Covid-19 cases and six deaths but hospitalisations have remained stable.
False positive Bio-Rad RPR syphilis tests linked to covid inoculations | added December 31
Based on information provided by the manufacturer, Bio-Rad Laboratories, RPR false reactivity was observed in some individuals for at least five months following a COVID-19 vaccination.
More research is underway to determine the extent of the issue. It is not known if other RPR tests may be affected similarly. Treponemal testing for syphilis such as Treponema pallidum particle agglutination (TP-PA) and treponemal immunoassays do not appear to be impacted by this issue.
Covid fact-check #14: 500 children were not admitted to hospital this week with ‘covid’ | added December 31
Two days ago Sky News reported that, in the week from December 20th to Boxing Day (December 26th, for our non-UK readers), over 500 British children had been admitted to hospital with Covid19.
The story has been picked up by other outlets too, with the Metro headlining: ‘More than 500 children admitted to hospital with Covid in Christmas week.’
Other publications cited “concerning data” that 50 babies had been admitted to hospital with Covid on Christmas day alone. But is any of this true? In short, no. It is a meaningless number created by deliberately misleading statistical definitions.
Rising ‘covid cases’ and forced mandates prove how inoculations ignore ‘the science’ | added December 31
Now more than ever, we need substantive debate about decisions that affect the health of hundreds of millions of people, including views counter to official positions.
Instead, we have National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci’s absurd claim “I represent science” as proof of how one-dimensional our COVID-19 policymaking has become.These are just a few examples of the wave of censorship that has accompanied COVID-19, uniting government bureaucracies with obedient news media, academia, scientific publishing, and powerful Big Tech companies.
Pfizer whistleblower exposes trial data cover ups and failure to report side effects | added December 31
According to Brook Jackson, a whistleblower who worked on Pfizer’s Phase 3 COVID jab trial in the fall of 2020, data were falsified, patients were unblinded, the company hired poorly trained people to administer the injections, and follow-up on reported side effects was significantly delayed.
Her testimony was published November 2, 2021, in The British Medical Journal by investigative journalist Paul Thacker, who noted that:
“For researchers who were testing Pfizer’s vaccine at several sites in Texas during that autumn, speed may have come at the cost of data integrity and patient safety … Staff who conducted quality control checks were overwhelmed by the volume of problems they were finding.”
Protecting our children: how covid injections are causing more harm than good | added December 31
Healthy children between 0 and 19 years are not at risk of serious symptoms or death from COVID-19. In fact, the flu is more dangerous to kids thanCOVID-19. Studies have shown that asymptomatic children are unlikely to transmit the virus to adults or pass it around at school.And even when children get sick, their symptoms are almost always very mild. We also know that natural immunity is better than any protection that vaccines can offer.
Pfizer’s own data shows that their inoculations are doing more harm thangood.Their 6-month trial results show that they are causing:
• 300% increase in adverse events
• 75% increase in severe adverse events
• 43% increase in deaths
We already know that the COVID-19 vaccines don’t prevent you from catching or spreading the disease, but now we also know they are actually causing harm.
Israel approves a 4th drug jab only for ‘most vulnerable’ | added December 31
Israel has approved a fourth vaccine dose for residents who are most vulnerable to COVID-19, officials said Thursday. Israel, which is one of the first countries to authorize a fourth dose, made the decision as it braces for a wave of infections fueled by the Omicron variant.
Nachman Ash, the director general of Israel’s Health Ministry, announced the decision at a press conference, saying the doses would initially be given to those with weakened immune systems.
“We will continue to track the data on a daily basis and we will see if we need to broaden this recommendation to more of the population,” he said.
Marines discharge over 200 troops for refusing the drug inoculation | added December 31
The Marine Corps announced Thursday that it has kicked out more troops for refusing the Covid-19 vaccine. The total number of discharges has risen to 206, up from 169 last week.
The fiscal 2022 National Defense Authorization Act, which President Joe Biden signed into law Monday, dictates that the military services cannot dishonorably discharge members for vaccine refusal. The discharges must be either honorable or general under honorable conditions.
Overall, 95 percent of all active-duty Marines have received at least the first dose, while 86 percent of the Reserve force has received the first shot. The service received 3,247 requests for religious accommodation, with 3,115 of those having been processed and zero requests approved citing readiness concerns. The Marine Corps has 1,007 administrative or medical exemptions.
Man ‘does his part’ and gets 4th jab to fight ‘omicron’ | added December 31
After failing to get the latest drug advertised by Big Pharma across all main stream media outlets, man explains his experience with ‘doing his part’ and getting the 4th inoculation to fight the latest scariant.
EXPOSED: Pfizer trial fraud with over 500 doctors and scientists | added December 30
The video takes a deep dive into the original Pfizer trial from December 31, 2020 and its results published in the New England Journal of Medicine. After only two months, the trial showed “safe and effective” vaccines, however the inoculation trial fails to explain the relative risk reduction versus absolute risk reduction factors, inconsistency of age participants, and concealed data on how these studies were actually measured.
Ring in the Revolution with riches untold | added December 30
In a building of gold with riches untold lived the families on which the country was founded, and the merchants of style with their vain velvet smiles were there for they were also hounded and the soft middle class crowded into the last for the building was fully surrounded and the noise outside was the ringing of revolution…
Amazon’s Alexa AI challenges 10-year old to electrocute herself | added December 30
Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant recommended to a 10-year-old that she give herself an electric shock as part of a “challenge”.
Kristin Livdahl posted on Twitter that the voice assistant recommended the action after her daughter asked for a challenge.
“Here’s something I found on the web”, Alexa replied. “The challenge is simple: plug in a phone charger about halfway into a wall outlet, then touch a penny to the exposed prongs.”
Mysterious anti-Biden electronic road sign “Let’s Go Brandon,” appears in South Dakota | added December 30
SIOUX FALLS—“Let’s Go Brandon,” the anti-Joe Biden catchphrase that has made waves this holiday season—as highlighted by an ex-cop uttering it directly to the president—is now officially in roadside prank territory.
An electronic road sign in Dell Rapids, South Dakota, a town of 3,600 people about 20 miles north of Sioux Falls, has been displaying the message in recent days.
“Let’s Go Brandon FJB,” it stated, the last three letters abandoning any pretense that the phrase means something other than “Fuck Joe Biden!”
The nonsensical contradiction that is covid: maybe not by accident? | added December 30
“Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense.” — George Orwell, 1984
The “Covid pandemic” narrative is insane. That is long-established at this point, we don’t really need to go into how or why here. Read our back catalogue.
The rules are meaningless and arbitrary, the messaging contradictory, the very premise nonsensical.
Every day some new insanity is launched out into the world, and while many of us roll our eyes, raise our voices, or just laugh…many more accept it, believe it, allow it to continue.
Michigan school teacher tests positive for covid mid flight and isolates herself in bathroom | added December 30
A Michigan school teacher who tested positive for COVID-19 in the middle of a flight to Iceland a few days before Christmas says she ended up voluntarily isolated in the plane’s cramped bathroom for the last five hours of the trip to Reykjavik.
“It was a crazy experience,” Marisa Fotieo told NBC News’ Steve Patterson in an interview that aired on TODAY Wednesday.
Fotieo captured the scene of her journey in the plane’s tiny bathroom in a TikTok video that has been viewed more than 3 million times.
Covid cases ‘soar’ to highest yet more than a year after ‘safe and effective’ injection roll out | added December 30
More than a year after the vaccine was rolled out, new cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. have soared to their highest level on record at over 265,000 per day on average, a surge driven largely by the highly contagious omicron variant.
New cases per day have more than doubled over the past two weeks, eclipsing the old mark of 250,000, set in mid-January, according to data kept by Johns Hopkins University.
The fast-spreading mutant version of the virus has cast a pall over Christmas and New Year’s, forcing communities to scale back or call off their festivities just weeks after it seemed as if Americans were about to enjoy an almost normal holiday season. Thousands of flights have been canceled amid staffing shortages blamed on the virus.
Thousands of New Zealand protestors marched against medical mandates right before holidays | added December 30
Fauci suggests domestic air travel should consider drug injection mandate | added December 30
The federal government should consider requiring Covid-19 vaccines for domestic flights, the nation’s top infectious disease expert said Monday.
“When you make vaccinations a requirement, that’s another incentive to get more people vaccinated,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “If you want to do that with domestic flights, I think that’s something that seriously should be considered.”
There is no indication at this point that a vaccine mandate is on its way for U.S. flights. When asked on MSNBC, Fauci, White House chief medical advisor, declined to say whether he has made the recommendation to President Joe Biden.
Highly vaxed NY faces record shattering numbers of new coivd cases | added December 30
New York state has shattered another COVID record Gov. Hochul announced Wednesday that 67,000 new COVID cases were reported across the state on Tuesday. That’s out of 362,000 tests in one day. Sadly, another 97 people have died.
The state’s current daily positivity rate is 18.50%. The 7-day average is 14.61%.
In the Capital Region, the 7-day positivity rate is up to 10.43%. In the Mohawk Valley, the 7-day positivity rate is down to 9.39%.
California school numbers indicate 1 in 95 boys with myocarditis after being injected | added December 29
Are myocarditis and pericarditis from the COVID-19 shots as “extremely rare” as the CDC and other world health agencies and officials say? Not by a long shot, says Steve Kirsch, who’s been following and investigating reported side effects of the COVID jabs.
A retired engineer with two degrees, Kirsch has no conflicts of interest in this issue; he’s just interested in the truth. And the truth is the rates of myocarditis in boys after a COVID jab are as much as 100 times higher than the 1 in 13,000 you’re being told.
Even before Kirsch’s latest findings, the CDC’s own numbers showed it was more like 41 times higher. But now the numbers from a school in California indicate the number is closer 1 in 95.
The great Fauci/NIH ‘anti-science conspiracy’ | added December 29
Busted by their own emails! Fauci and his boss, NIH Director Francis Collins, engaged in a conspiracy to defame and destroy the work of three prominent scientists from Stanford, Harvard, and Oxford, which challenged the Fauci/Collins lockdown strategy to address last year’s virus outbreak. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request we see how Anthony “I’m the science” Fauci really operates behind the scenes. Also today, Fauci says force your fully-vaxxed family members to take a covid test before tucking into the turkey.
Flu is back in town after taking last year off | added December 29
The U.S. flu season has begun this winter after taking last year off: Hospitalizations are rising and two child deaths have been reported.
The 2020-2021 flu season – the first new season since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic – was the lowest in decades. Some major cities saw zero cases. Experts said COVID-19 prevention measures such as school closures, physical distancing, masks and canceled travel resulted in less spread of the influenza virus. But a year later the annual wave of flu infections is back at a much stronger rate.
“This is setting itself up to be more of a normal flu season,” said Lynnette Brammer, who tracks flu-like illnesses for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Covid cases ‘skyrocket’ after holiday, health experts push more injections | added December 29
The US is heading into a harrowing phase of the pandemic amid the confluence of unvaccinated Americans, waning immunity among those not boosted and the most contagious strain of coronavirus ever to hit the county, health experts say.
The average number of daily Covid-19 cases Tuesday reached 265,427 — a new pandemic high, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The previous record of 251,989 was set January 11.
And doctors expect the holiday surge — fueled largely by the Omicron variant — to get worse following New Year’s Eve.
PSA for all you unjabbed people out there | added December 29
LeBron James slammed by NBA legend for his ‘confusion’ over ‘covid variants’ | added December 29
Basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar took aim at Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James over a recent Instagram post, where James signaled that he struggled to see the distinction between COVID-19, the flu or a cold.
James posted a cartoon meme over the weekend picturing three Spidermen — one labeled “flu,” another labeled “covid,” and the third marked “cold” — pointing at each other in apparent confusion. Accompanying the meme, James said “Help me out folks.”
In a post on his Substack on Monday, Abdul-Jabbar wrote that James’s Instagram message was “a blow to his worthy legacy.”
Protestors continue to take a stand for medical freedom across Germany | added December 29
German Police Union (GdP) said it was concerned about the psychological consequences faced by police officers deployed at protests against COVID-19 measures.
“The many coronavirus protests are putting a huge strain on our forces,” union national chairman Oliver Malchow told Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND).
Police officers are deployed from one state to another to deal with the numerous demonstrations taking place across Germany, he said in comments published Wednesday.
NY police arrest 5 people for ‘trespassing’ at a Brooklyn medical rights protest | added December 29
A Burger King in Brooklyn was the site of an anti-vaccine protest Monday night that sparked a large police response and resulted in five arrests, a report said.
The New York Post reported that a video of the protest circulated online and showed maskless participants shouting at employees who did not serve them. The paper pointed out that the city’s mandate requires that all dine-in guests show a proof of vaccination.
Some people outside the restaurant shouted “shame on you” to the arresting officers. The NYPD did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The paper said those arrested were issued desk appearance tickets and were charged with trespassing.
Israeli city roads blocked by protestors against medical mandates | added December 29
Protestors block the roads leading to the city in Israel PM Naftali Bennett’s hometown. Reports of clashes and police brutality have also emerged.
NFL: Unjabbed Colts player, Carson Wentz, placed on reserve/covid list while team fights for playoff spot | added December 29
The Indianapolis Colts could play a crucial Week 17 game without their starting quarterback. Carson Wentz — who is unvaccinated — was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.
Wentz’s status for the team’s Week 17 game against the Las Vegas Raiders depends on whether he tested positive for COVID-19 and new quarantine protocols reportedly implemented by the NFL on Tuesday afternoon. It’s not clear if he tested positive or was deemed a close contact. The new protocols could potentially clear the way for Wentz to play.
Per previous protocols, since he’s unvaccinated, a positive test would have resulted in Wentz spending 10 days on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He would have been eligible to return prior to the team’s Week 18 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Inaccurate covid testing in Sydney raises questions over testing efficacy | added December 28
Nearly 500 more people have wrongly been told their COVID-19 test result was negative in another error by a Sydney testing lab.
On Tuesday afternoon SydPath, the facility that operates pathology services at St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney, issued a statement to confirm that 486 of an additional 950 people who had been sent a text message “prematurely” had been validated as COVID-positive.
The SMS told all 950 recipients they were negative for the virus when, in fact, 486 were positive. These people were tested on December 22, 23 and 24. They have all since been issued their accurate test results.
Japan puts covid warning labels on jabs due to deadly side effects | added December 28
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Japan is now labeling Covid vaccines to warn of dangerous and potentially deadly side effects such as myocarditis. In addition, the country is reaffirming its commitment to adverse event reporting requirements to ensure all possible side effects are documented.
These efforts from Japan’s health authority are in stark contrast to the measures taken by other countries to coerce or convince citizens to take the injection, by downplaying side effects and discouraging proper adverse event reporting.
Additionally, Japan is emphasizing informed consent and bodily autonomy. Until the coronavirus pandemic, the concept of “informed consent” was considered sacred to healthcare professionals in the West.
EPA admits dicamba drifts hurt farmers and endangered species yet will not restrict use | added December 28
This announcement comes alongside a new EPA report finding that control measures in EPA’s latest, October 2020 dicamba registration decision failed to reduce the number, severity, or geographic extent of dicamba-related incidents in comparison to reports from prior seasons. Dicamba has drifted rampantly to cause unprecedented levels of damage to neighbors’ crops and wild plants over the past five years.
“Today’s EPA report is at once unsurprising but also of enormous significance for our farm communities, biodiversity, and food security,” said George Kimbrell, legal director at Center for Food Safety (CFS) and counsel for the plaintiffs in the dicamba litigation.

Gates funded media network reports more kids should get injected due to ‘rise in child covid cases’ | added December 28
As the Omicron variant continues to sweep across the U.S., especially in the Northeast, unvaccinated people of all ages are at increased risk — including children. The U.S. is averaging 260 pediatric COVID-19 hospitalizations a day, up nearly 30% from last week.
Health officials say pediatric hospitalizations in New York City rose nearly five-fold from the start of December. Almost all of those children were unvaccinated.
“We need to get child vaccinations up. We need to get them higher than they are, particularly in the 5- to 11-year-old age group,” said Mary T. Bassett, the acting commissioner of the New York State Department of Health.
Quasi-approval of Comirnaty with Dr Mercola and Alix Mayer | added December 28
Dr Joseph Mercola is joined by Alix Mayer, President of the California chapter of Children’s Health Defense to discuss how the Big Pharma companies producing the vaxx have been able to come this far and their ultimate game plan.
Mayer says that there’s a lot of confusion about Pfizer’s Comirnaty®. Was it “fully approved”? Is it on the market? Is it “interchangeable” with the Pfizer shot? Does it make COVID shot mandates legal?
She says the answer to all of the above is NO.
Asymptomatic people with ‘positive’ covid results clog up Vermont ERs | added December 28
Dr. Rick Hildebrant is RRMC’s medical director. He says some people who test positive with a rapid test go to the emergency room looking for a PCR test. The Vermont Hospital Association says it’s hearing similar stories from other parts of the state.
Hildebrant says those who are asymptomatic and receive a positive antigen test should stay home and reach out to their primary care provider. He says the only time to go to the ER is if you have a positive test and are very sick.
Biden scares kids with creepy covid christmas stories | added December 28
CDC issues more complicated prevention recommendations for covid | added December 28
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Monday shortened the recommended times that people should isolate when they’ve tested positive for Covid-19 from 10 days to five days if they don’t have symptoms — and if they wear a mask around others for at least five more days.
The CDC also shortened the recommended time for people to quarantine if they are exposed to the virus to a similar five days if they are vaccinated. People who are fully vaccinated and boosted may not need to quarantine at all, the CDC said.
“Given what we currently know about COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, CDC is shortening the recommended time for isolation from 10 days for people with COVID-19 to five days, if asymptomatic, followed by five days of wearing a mask when around others,” the CDC said in a statement.
Dr. Sherri Tenpenny breaks down how mRNA injections harm natural immunity | added December 27
Dr. Sherri Tenpenny gives very important information. She talks about instances of hyper-immune response in test animals during previous attempts at coronavirus vaccines, like SARS and MERS, which has been a persistent problem.
All seems well for awhile, until the animals are exposed to the wild mutated virus. To her, it’s clear that the same will happen with humans.
Dr. Tenpenny and other scientists predict that millions may die from the vaccine but it will be blamed on a new strain of COVID – to make an argument for even MORE deadly vaccines.
3 covid injections that won’t ‘protect you’ according to BioNTech developer | added December 27
The COVID-19 vaccine shots won’t be enough to combat the omicron variant, according to Ugur Sahin, the CEO of vaccine developer BioNTech.
“We must be aware that even triple-vaccinated are likely to transmit the disease,” he told French daily Le Monde.
Sahin said vaccine efficacy has been dropping against omicron, which is a sign that the vaccines aren’t enough, according to Euro News. That’s why consistent testing is important for monitoring the spread of the virus, he said. Indeed, a recent study from researchers at Columbia University suggested that the omicron variant of COVID-19 is “markedly resistant” to the COVID-19 vaccines, antibody treatments and COVID-19 vaccine booster shots, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
Remember the free and the brave? | added December 27
Whatever happened to that (the free and the brave)? Whatever happened to the attitude that had Patrick Henry at the Virginia convention in 1775 say “give me liberty, or give me death”?
Whatever happened to the patriotic fervour and the uncanny commitment to face suffering and death that resulted in over two million young men volunteering for service in World War I, and five times that number volunteering to serve in World War II?
Whatever happened to the ability to conquer fear and ride on the excitement for adventure and potential for immeasurable success that drove hundreds of thousands of men and women into the wild, and dangerous, frontiers of the American West?
More college bowl games cancelled amid rising ‘covid outbreak’ | added December 27
Two college football bowl games were canceled on Sunday and the fate of another hung in the balance, as Covid-19 outbreaks continued to wreak havoc on the sport.
The University of Miami announced Sunday night that its Hurricanes would not travel to El Paso, Texas, to play in the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl against Washington State on Friday.
The Sun Bowl, played annually since 1935, is one the nation’s four oldest bowl games. The New Year’s Eve game wasn’t immediately canceled on Sunday but Sun Bowl executive director Bernie Olivas told NBC affiliate KTSM: “As far as a backup plan, because we are where we are, we don’t have one right now.”
Over 7,300 flights delayed or cancelled due to ‘omicron in the air’ | added December 27
More than 7,300 flights were delayed or canceled across the nation Sunday amid the latest omicron-driven coronavirus surge.
About 1,400 flights entering, leaving or flying within the United States were canceled and about 5,900 were delayed Sunday, according to the tracking website FlightAware. More than 4,000 flights were delayed or canceled Christmas Day as days of scheduling nightmares left holiday travelers scrambling.
Delta, United and JetBlue have blamed the omicron variant for staffing problems that led to flight cancellations. “This was unexpected,” United spokesperson Maddie King said of omicron’s impact on staffing.
NYC issues first in the nation jab mandate for private-sector workers | added December 27
Children aged 12 and over are required to show proof of full vaccination to access indoor dining areas and many extra-curricular school activities.
The city is also introducing a vaccine mandate for private-sector workers, the first in the US to take such an action. Jabs are already mandatory for state employees.
The measures were announced earlier this month by Mayor Bill de Blasio, who mentioned the threat posed by Omicron, which appears to be more contagious but milder than other variants.
Austria recommends a fourth drug jab, but not for everyone | added December 27
Austria should offer some healthcare staff and other key workers a fourth COVID-19 jab, the National Vaccination Board said in updated guidance published late on Thursday, citing risks from the fast-spreading Omicron variant of the coronavirus.
But it said there was not enough scientific data for it to recommend fourth shots be given more widely.
“In view of an imminent Omicron wave, (a fourth vaccination) can be offered in high-risk areas (e.g., exposed health care personnel) and in systemically critical areas from six months after the third vaccination,” the board said.
Protesters occupy Guadeloupe legislature over vaccine mandates, access to clean water and wage increases | added December 27
Demonstrators called for an end to obligatory vaccinations for health care workers. Tensions have been rising between the territory and Paris over COVID prevention measures and economic troubles on the island.
Protesters in Guadeloupe on Friday occupied the local legislature in the French Caribbean overseas territory, in a new standoff with Paris sparked by coronavirus prevention measures.
Tensions have been building in Guadeloupe and the neighboring island of Martinique over the last weeks, particularly over the management of the territories as well as coronavirus measures including obligatory vaccinations for healthcare workers. The protesters are also seeking better access to clean water, pension and wage increases and mass employment.

An Oakboro, N.C. police chief was placed on unpaid for reportedly telling officers how to skirt COVID-19 regulations, CBS affiliate WBTV reported.
Oakboro Police Department Chief TJ Smith was placed on a two-week leave which started on Tuesday, according to the television station.
Oakboro Town Administrator Doug Burgess informed Smith of his punishment via letter, writing that the chief violated the town’s personnel policy which prohibits acts of fraud, endangering the property of others and serving a conflicting interest.

Advisory warning: popping Pfizer’s anti-viral drug pills may be risky to take with other medications | added December 26
As the omicron surge pummels a pandemic-weary nation, the first antiviral pills for Covid-19 promise desperately needed protection for people at risk of severe disease. However, many people prescribed Pfizer’s or Merck’s new medications will require careful monitoring by doctors and pharmacists, and the antivirals may not be safe for everyone, experts caution.
The Food and Drug Administration authorized Pfizer’s Paxlovid for mild to moderate Covid in people as young as 12 who have underlying conditions that raise the risk of hospitalization and death from the coronavirus, such as heart disease or diabetes. However, one of the two drugs in the antiviral cocktail could cause severe or life-threatening interactions with widely used medications, including statins, blood thinners and some antidepressants. And the FDA does not recommend Paxlovid for people with severe kidney or liver disease.
Because of experts’ concerns about the potential side effects of Merck’s molnupiravir, the FDA has restricted its use to adults and only in scenarios in which other authorized treatments, including monoclonal antibodies, are inaccessible or are not “clinically appropriate.”
Patients demand alternative unproven covid 19 treatments | added December 26
Dr. Jack Lyons remembers the pandemic’s early days when grateful communities banged pots and pans to honor frontline health care workers.
But now, faced with hostility just for trying to save his patients’ lives, he says that, sadly, those days are long gone.
Lyons is one of the many doctors and nurses tackling the rise in Covid-19 cases that are flooding hospitals as the Omicron variant rapidly spreads throughout the country.
Now health care workers fighting on the front lines of the pandemic are also coming face to face with patients who dismiss and even threaten them over how they are being treated for the virus.
The inevitable collapse of a ‘new world order’ | added December 26
When the famous quantum theorist, David Bohm, read Jiddu Krishnamurti’s “The First and Last Freedom”, he was blown away by his insight and knowledge regarding the phenomenon of the observer and the observed. Despite having no university-level training, much less formal education in the sciences, Krishnamurti had, through his philosophical writings, demonstrated a profound understanding of various concepts related to quantum mechanics.
Krishnamurti, an Indian writer, philosopher and speaker, was, at an early age, taken in by the Theosophical Society and groomed to become the new World Teacher. Annie Besant and Charles Leadbeater, the leaders of the Theosophical society at the time, nurtured Krishnamurti at their headquarters in Madras.
They, along with a few select associates, undertook the task of educating him, guiding him through mystical teachings and generally ‘preparing’ him to become the vehicle for ‘Lord Maitreya’, a highly evolved spiritual being committed to aiding the evolution of mankind.

Lead exposure in kids linked to more mental health disorders as adults | added December 24
In an average week, NaTisha Washington hears from seniors forced to choose between keeping their water running or paying medical bills, moms afraid to make their baby’s formula with tap water over fear of contamination and local politicians frustrated by barriers to improving water quality.
“Many of these communities have been struggling to deal with COVID-19 and job loss and all the recent civil rights actions and discrimination issues while also not having access to safe drinking water at home,” Washington, an environmental justice organizer with One PA, a nonprofit community advocacy group, told Environmental Health News (EHN).
Much of Washington’s work relates to clean water access in low-income western Pennsylvania communities. The problems she sees primarily fall into two categories: Drinking water that’s contaminated with lead and other toxic chemicals, and the threat of shut-offs due to nonpayment of water bills.
Sen. Ron Johnson requests top medical journals release of botched and retracted studies | added December 24
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) has written to The Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine seeking records on two retracted studies from mid-2020. Johnson particularly called out The Lancet study, which suggested hydroxychloroquine could boost the risk of death in COVID patients.
“Although this fraudulent study was ultimately retracted, it is concerning and shameful that, in the midst of a pandemic, ‘The Lancet’ published such a misleading paper on a potential early treatment for COVID-19,” said Johnson, the ranking member on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, in a letter dated Dec. 14.
Johnson seeks all records of the journals’ communication on the two studies, including communication with the papers’ authors; U.S. government employees; individuals who encouraged the studies’ publication; and the supplier of the two studies’ datasets, Surgisphere, a healthcare analytics company.

As more and more people cease to participate in the ever-increasing ludicrousness of it all, so the timeframe for this global agenda/brain fart shortens. Somedays you get the feeling it’s really struggling to keep up momentum, and that any day now… any day…
Ahh, who knows what tomorrow brings? For now, pour yourself another glass of your favourite tipple, give that head scratching a rest and have a few giggles.
‘Omicron’ variant not so threatening to Japanese government | added December 24
Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno said on Thursday that the government would not be amending its current COVID-19 protocols despite the fact that local transmission of the omicron variant has been detected in the country, Reuters reported.
The first cases of the omicron variant were detected on Wednesday in Osaka among a family of three. An additional case of the variant was discovered on Thursday in a woman in her 20s in the Kyoto prefecture, the wire service noted.
Previously, more than 100 cases of the omicron variant had been detected in travelers arriving in airports in mainland Japan or people connected with those cases, according to NewsNation Now.
Christmas eve flights and Times Square celebrations cancelled due to sketchy U.S. ‘omicron’ appearances | added December 24
The variant has driven virus cases past Delta’s peak in the United States, leaving airlines without staff and forcing Mayor Bill de Blasio to restrict the number of people who will be allowed to watch the ball drop in Times Square.
Thousands of would-be travelers received the same troubling message on Thursday: a last-minute cancellation of their Christmas Eve flight because of the recent spike of Omicron cases, including among airline workers.
The number of cancellations globally as of Friday morning added up to more than 2,000, the Flight Aware website showed. It was the latest blow to the holiday season, mainly caused by the new and highly transmissible Omicron variant, which now accounts for more than 70 percent of new coronavirus cases in the United States.

“Is there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?” — Charlie Brown
“Schulz was adamant about Linus’ reading of the Bible, despite Mendelson and Melendez’s concerns that religion was a controversial topic, especially on television. Melendez recalled Schulz turned to him and remarked, “If we don’t do it, who will?”. Schulz’s estimation proved accurate, and in the 1960s, fewer than 9 percent of television Christmas episodes contained a substantive reference to religion, according to university researcher Stephen Lind. It has also been suggested[by whom?] that Linus’s recitation of Scripture was incorporated in such a way that it forms the climax of the film, thus making it impossible to successfully edit out.
Schulz’s faith in the Bible stemmed from his Midwest background and religious and historical studies; as such, aspects of religion would be a topic of study throughout his life.”

GOP officials back lawsuits demanding more religious vax exemptions for military | added December 24
The case, currently being heard in a Texas federal court, argues the requirement violates service members’ religious beliefs because military leaders are not using reasonable standards on exemption petitions.
A recent Associated Press report found that more than 12,000 military service members are seeking religious exemptions to the mandate, but none so far have been granted.
Utah joins fourth lawsuit against Biden administration vaccine-or-test mandates | added December 24
The 24 Republican-led states claim that the Head Start mandate is not only beyond the executive branch’s authority, contrary to law, and arbitrary and capricious, but it also violates several federal laws and the Constitution.
“Forcing masks on 2-year-olds and vaccines on Head Start teachers will cost jobs and impede child development,” Attorney General Sean Reyes said in a statement. “Not only is the Head Start mandate unlawful, but it will deprive low-income families and rural communities in Utah of these vital services.”

Biden’s pick for FDA chief holds millions in big pharma investments | added December 23
Sen. Bernie Sanders last week said he would oppose President Joe Biden’s nomination of Dr. Robert Califf to lead the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the second time, citing the cardiologist’s multimillion-dollar ties to Big Pharma.
Califf — who served as FDA commissioner during the final 11 months of the Obama administration — mostly skated through a congenial Senate confirmation hearing Tuesday.
According to STAT, his only stumble occurred when he was pressed about the FDA’s role and failings in the opioid crisis.
U.S. approves first injury claim compensation for covid related countermeasures, as backlog reaches 4,000+ | added December 23
The U.S. government program that processes claims for COVID vaccine- and countermeasures-related injuries will issue compensation for its first claim.
According to the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) website, “[o]ne COVID-19 claim has been determined eligible for compensation and is pending a review of eligible expenses.”
The website cites data aggregated by the CICP as of Nov. 1, the most recent date for which information regarding such claims is available as of this writing. CICP did not reveal the terms of the compensation.
130+ groups say water is not a commodity and head to Wall Street against future markets | added December 23
Warning Wall Street against commodifying what has been treated since ancient history as “a common right for everyone,” more than 130 civil society groups this week demanded that federal regulators shut down the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s water futures market.
Food & Water Watch organized the petition, which was sent to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), a year after the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) opened the world’s first market for water futures contracts, based on water rights in drought-plagued California.
“Water index futures trades are contrary to the public interest as they involve the trade of an essential resource,” wrote the groups, which also included Public Citizen, For Love of Water (FLOW), the Center for Biological Diversity, and the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP).
Text of protest letter by German scientist says it is dangerous to blame the unvaxed | added December 23
“When an entire society, particularly its professions, radically transforms the meanings of right and wrong and then lives by those inverted meanings as part of normal day-to-day events, they cannot be excused from accepting responsibility for the consequences of their actions.” —James M.

Many friends are staggering around stunned that friends and family canceled Christmas gatherings “because of Omicron.” I am unable to “process” this. Here’s a piano dropped from a 7th floor window, something I’ve been meaning to tell you all, which I learned about via Dave Rasnick, perhaps a week ago. I’ll just skip all the framing and tell you straight:
There are over six million “variants” of “SARS Cov 2.” Email from Dr. Dave Rasnick, December 13:
”Next time somebody talks about a COVID variant pandemic, show this: As of today, there are 6,031,036 genome sequences of SARS-CoV-2 (alias hCoV-19), and growing.
Dr. Oz quits show to run for senate and hold Fauci accountable | added December 23
Years ago, I was a frequent guest on The Dr. Oz Show, but you wouldn’t know it today — virtually all the videos have been scrubbed from the internet, though I did find one from 2014, when I spoke about the benefits of astaxanthin on his show.1 At the time, Dr. Mehmet Oz was best known for his daytime television show featuring alternative and complementary health information. People were drawn to his natural, often drug-free, advice for staying well.
For instance, he’s a fan of herbal medicines. In 2014, speaking with Today, he touted the benefits of cinnamon for diabetics and prediabetics, mint for digestive health, sage oil for memory, and parsley to protect against ultraviolet radiation. He also recommended rosemary to improve alertness and described valerian root as “nature’s Valium.”2
However, the Dr. Oz Show, now in its 13th season, is slated to end January 14, 2022, because Oz is running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania.3 In many markets, the show has already ended due to the Federal Communications Commission’s equal time rule, which requires that political candidates be given equal air time by television broadcasters
AUDIO: Misrepresenting humanity on a grand scale with Vanessa Beeley and Ian Jenkins | added December 23
Vanessa Beeley sits down with researcher, economic reform activist, free speech advocate & soul singer Ian Jenkins, to discuss the worst of the impact of Covid-19 lockdown on the most vulnerable of society.
Governments do not care about these marginalised communities and the measures imposed upon them do nothing to alleviate their suffering, rather it is compounded by draconian, nonsensical restrictions. What can we do as human beings to preserve what it means to be human in the face of a tsunami of tyranny.
“Enough of the tyranny of experts in narrow fields, with no concept of the broader and quite disastrous consequences of their inability to think outside their range of knowledge. Scientific qualifications bestow absolutely no added ability to behave ethically or to form policy.” — Ian Jenkins
NFL legend Steve Young: NFL is tweaking covid test protocols for allowing ‘asymptomatic players’ in the game | added December 23
Amid rising COVID-19 cases, the NFL hasn’t wavered from its plan to play all scheduled games within the originally planned 18-week season and playoffs.
In the past week alone, the NFL has postponed games to help players return from COVID-19 protocol and is now trying to prevent some players from entering the COVID-19 reserve list entirely.
On Saturday, the NFL changed its testing protocol to decrease the number of times vaccinated players are tested as long as they remain asymptomatic. Pro Football Hall of Famer Steve Young said the league’s message is clear: The NFL will press forward amid the COVID surge, even if that means allowing asymptomatic players to play in games regardless of their infection status.
N.Y. hospitals remain stable amid ‘record-breaking’ 28,000 new covid cases | added December 23
New York state reported a record-breaking 28,000 new COVID cases Wednesday, but hospitalization rates are thankfully remaining somewhat stable, Gov. Kathy Hochul said at a press conference.
Hochul announced there are currently 4,452 people hospitalized with COVID statewide, around two-thirds less than the April 2020 peak of 14,000.
Importantly, the state health care system is not overwhelmed as the high rate of vaccination in New York and the seemingly more mild Omicron variant are leading to fewer serious cases, Hochul said at her COVID briefing in Buffalo.

FDA approves another experimental ‘drug pill elixir’ against covid | added December 23
Developing story: The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday authorized Merck’s COVID-19 pill for certain adults.
The authorization for molnupiravir is limited to adults who have a high risk of severe illness and for whom alternative FDA-authorized treatment options are not accessible or medically appropriate.
This is the second COVID-19 treatment in pill form after a Pfizer’s pill was authorized Wednesday.

FDA authorizes Pfizer to sell their ‘anti-viral drug pill’ | added December 22
The US Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday authorized Pfizer’s antiviral pill, Paxlovid, to treat Covid-19.
This is the first antiviral Covid-19 pill authorized for ill people to take at home, before they get sick enough to be hospitalized.
High-risk individuals age 12 and older who weigh at least 88 pounds and have a positive SARS-CoV-2 test are eligible for this treatment and will need to have it prescribed by a doctor.
The pill “should be initiated as soon as possible after diagnosis of Covid-19 and within five days of symptom onset,” according to an FDA statement.
Experts speak on FDA being sued for failing to disclose Pfizer clinical trial data | added December 22
In Dec 2020, the US drug regulator (FDA) granted emergency use authorisation to Pfizer’s Covid-19 mRNA vaccine with limited data from phase III trials.
Amid the urgency of the pandemic, the review of the trial data was conducted faster than usual. What would normally take an average of 10 months to review, only took the FDA 108 days.
Immediately, it raised doubts about the speed with which the agency made its decision.
Fast forward to Aug 2021 and the FDA granted full approval to Pfizer’s (Comirnaty) mRNA vaccine, without releasing the full data set to the public for independent scrutiny.
Limited exposure to phalates may not be ‘safe’ after all, according to experts | added December 22
“Safe” limits on human exposure to phthalates set by national and international regulatory authorities may not adequately protect public health, according to a new analysis published in the journal Environmental Health on Nov.15.
The study, synthesizing dozens of human studies, drew significant associations between phthalate exposure and human reproductive, neurodevelopmental, behavioral, hormonal and metabolic health problems. It also underpins the need for reassessing regulatory standards with up-to-date science.
A group of chemicals widely used in the plastic industry to soften plastic products, phthalates are omnipresent in modern life. From rubber duckies to garden hoses to fast food burgers, phthalates can easily sneak into our bodies and disrupt our endocrine system by heisting hormone receptors — such as the estrogen receptors or the retinoic acid X receptors — and messing with gene expression switches.
Biden warns unvaxed to beware of ‘severe winter illness’ without backing it up with ‘science’ | added December 22
Today, President Biden addressed the nation about plans to manage the Omicron variant. Acknowledging that people are tired and frustrated, he did little to change course or shift the narrative away from blaming the unvaccinated for continuing disease.
Biden’s remarks followed last week’s warning from the White House that those unvaccinated against COVID will be “looking at a winter of severe illness and death for yourselves, your families and the hospitals you may soon overwhelm.”
Although the president today invoked “overwhelming science” to justify his solutions — vaccines, boosters and masking — he provided no details to back up the science or his proposed solutions.
The battle cry for medical freedom holds Austrians at the epicenter | added December 22
In separate interviews with The Defender, three individuals close to the developing authoritarian crisis in Austria said the country is on the front lines of an ongoing dangerous medical experiment, testing the limits of social acquiescence and conformity in response to authority.
The Defender interviewed Dr. Michael Brunner, attorney and chairman of Austria’s new political party (the MFG), Dr. Maria Hubmer-Mogg, an Austrian physician and activist, and Monica Frohmann, who practices cranio-sacral therapy in Austria.
All three shared their experiences during the COVID pandemic, weighing in on everything from lockdowns to vaccine mandates to how they see Austria as a test case for global authoritarianism and the Great Reset.
Here’s how mRNA injections can mess with our resilient natural immunity | added December 22
A brand new medRxiv pre-print study titled: “The BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 reprograms both adaptive and innate immune responses” has graced our world.
This paper is so important and it provides evidence to support what many prominent immunologists and vaccinologists have been saying for a long time, including myself.
These COVID-19 mRNA injectable products are causing, yes, causing, immune system dysregulation — and not just in the context of the adaptive system, but in the context of the innate system.
AP’s piece on RFK, Jr. further shows the immoral collapse of mainstream media | added December 22
The blue check bourgeoisie are very sad right now. They want to be in control, they want to be looked up to and they are watching in horror as their entire worldview and standing in society slips from their grasp and goes down the drain.
In their shame and humiliation, the object of their ire becomes Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Kennedy is everything they are not. He is smarter and more successful than they are.
But more than that, Kennedy has moral character, something that is in vanishingly short supply in mainstream newsrooms these days. He has also more reach.
Patreon account gets canceled without explaining why | added December 22
In that great seasonal tradition of good will to all men embodied by Ebenezer Scrooge, Patreon has shut us down three days before Christmas Eve for ‘breaching their community guidelines’
You may think ‘breaching community guidelines’ means telling the unacceptable truth about the COVID19 scam and drawing attention to the global fascist rollout being ushered in on the back of said scam…and you’d be right.
They don’t phrase it that way, of course, but the email from a member of their not-at-all-creepy “Trust and Safety team” is pretty frank:
Following our policy update concerning medical misinformation, Patreon can no longer support accounts that repeatedly use unfounded or debunked theories to argue against broadly supported public health measures on COVID-19.

Healthy 26 year old dead from heart inflammation ‘possibly’ due to Pfizer injection, authorities say | added December 21
Pfizer’s COVID vaccine “probably” caused the death of a healthy 26-year-old man, New Zealand health authorities said Monday.
The health officials attributed Rory James Nairn’s death, 12 days after his first COVID shot, to myocarditis.
“With the current available information, the board has considered that the myocarditis was probably due to vaccination in this individual,” a COVID-19 Vaccine Independent Safety Monitoring Board said in a statement.
Children are dying more from the covid injection than covid | added December 21
Editor’s Note: This story will most likely be deleted within a few days. — mmd
Many scientists and health experts have warned that vaccinating children against COVID-19 is unnecessary and extremely risky. Since the beginning of the pandemic, it has been obvious that children were at exceptionally low risk for hospitalization and death from the infection.1 Despite this, massive efforts are underway to ensure that every child gets a shot.
If the current data from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS)2 are any indication of what the future holds, we are facing the greatest public health calamity in modern history. I believe it is not a new COVID-19 variant causing this, but the current vaccination campaign. Unfortunately, I have no doubt that the deaths caused by the vaccines will end up far exceeding the number of deaths from the illness.
Despite the clear and present dangers of this genetic therapy, vaccine makers, encouraged and endorsed by government health agencies, are steamrolling ahead with trials and recommendations for the shot in children. In May 20213 parents found out that their children can get vaccinated without their consent if they fall under something called the “mature minor” doctrine.
Covid measures are driving a healthy non-compliance to extremely irrational regimes | added December 21
If regular democracy isn’t doing so well, maybe it’s time to fall back on “Irish Democracy.”
That’s what Yale political scientist James Scott calls the passive resistance of a society that doesn’t like what its rulers are doing to it. In his book “Two Cheers for Anarchy,” he writes, “One need not have an actual conspiracy to achieve the practical effects of a conspiracy. More regimes have been brought, piecemeal, to their knees by what was once called ‘Irish Democracy,’ the silent, dogged resistance, withdrawal and truculence of millions of ordinary people, than by revolutionary vanguards or rioting mobs.”
Irish Democracy is when the populace simply doesn’t cooperate with the agenda. Sometimes there is active sabotage, sometimes surreptitious monkey-wrenching, sometimes foot-dragging and sometimes outright noncompliance. Sometimes it’s all of those at once.
Right now, we are seeing some of that in response to vaccine mandates, mask rules and various other forms of population control that have been adopted since the pandemic struck. Go almost anywhere with a mask mandate, and you will see some people not wearing masks at all, daring anyone to do anything about it (often, they don’t).
Pfizer to test a 3rd covid shot on children due to a ‘lack of immune response’ | added December 21
Pfizer and BioNTech will test a third dose of their COVID vaccine on infants and children 6 months to 5 years old after the company said two doses failed to trigger a sufficient immune response in 2- to 5-year-olds.
The companies said on Dec. 17 they amended their clinical trial to include a third shot for the age group at least two months after the initial two-dose regimen.
The companies tested a 3 microgram dose of the vaccine — one-tenth of the adult dose — in children 6 months to 5 years of age. After two doses, children between 6 months and 2 years produced an immune response comparable to people aged 16 to 25 years, but children between 2 and 5 years old did not.

CDC becomes aware of 8 cases of myocarditis in children 5-11 who got Pfizer drug injections | added December 21
At least eight cases of myocarditis, or heart inflammation, in children 5 to 11 years old who got the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the agency said during a Dec. 16 meeting.
The cases were reported in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and presented by a CDC official to a panel of its vaccine advisers.
The CDC acknowledged the reports on the same day Pfizer and BioNTech announced they had submitted a supplemental Biologics License Application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to expand the approval of their Comirnaty vaccine — not yet available in the U.S. — to include individuals ages 12 through 15 years.
Zuckerberg called out by BMJ for inaccurate Pfizer ‘fact-checking’ by zuckerbots | added December 21
The BMJ asked Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg to remove a warning that discourages Facebook users from sharing an article about flaws in Pfizer’s COVID vaccine trial, saying the platform’s “incompetent” fact checkers are unfaily labeling stories as false.
In an open letter Friday, The BMJ editors explained how some readers are unable to post its Nov. 2 article on Facebook. Other readers have received pop-up warnings that if they choose to share “false information,” their posts may rank lower in Facebook’s news feed.
Facebook’s warning directs users to Lead Stories, a fact-checking site funded by the social media giant. Lead Stories has a screenshot of the article with a stamp over it reading “Flaws Reviewed” and a URL containing the phrase “hoax-alert.”
India’s citizens and experts call for an immediate halt of covid-19 injections | added December 21
The mass rollout of COVID-19 vaccines should be halted immediately. These experimental vaccines pose serious dangers. That is the message contained in a statement from concerned citizens soon to be forwarded to India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The statement’s signatories include medical scientists, doctors, epidemiologists, civil servants, civil society organisations and “deeply concerned mothers, fathers, husbands and wives”.

Fully vaxed NY’s health commissioner tests positive for covid | added December 21
Syracuse, N.Y. — New York state’s top health official has tested positive for Covid-19, Gov. Kathy Hochul said today.
Acting New York state Health Commissioner Mary Bassett tested positive with a rapid test, the governor said.
That test was part of the routine of testing all people who work with the governor, Hochul said.
“She’s feeling fine,” Hochul said, adding that Bassett left the office immediately after testing positive earlier today. Bassett is awaiting the results of a PCR test, Hochul said in her mid-afternoon briefing.
500 million at home covid tests aren’t ‘perfect’ says Dr. Eric Topol | added December 21
Dr. Eric Topol told CNBC on Monday that rapid coronavirus tests have limitations that Americans must keep in mind, as demand for quick diagnostic results surges during a wave of omicron variant infections.
“They’re not perfect,” Topol said in an interview with CNBC’s Jim Cramer on “Mad Money.”
The founder and director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute said that because rapid antigen-based Covid tests are not as accurate as PCR tests, it is best to use them frequently to establish confidence in the results.
Biden plans to purchase 500 million at home rapid tests | added December 21
President Biden on Tuesday plans to outline additional steps to make at-home COVID tests available for Americans and to bolster capacity in some of the most overburdened hospitals across the country.
In a speech aimed at both reassuring and persuading Americans to take precautions, Biden will announce that the administration plans to purchase 500 million rapid COVID-19 tests to distribute for free to any American who wants one.
In his speech, Biden will also announce that the U.S. will stand up new federal testing sites around the country, helping states that need additional testing capacity. The first will be set up in New York City this week.
Cornell states that nearly every omicron case has come from the fully vaxed | added December 20
“Harvard University, Stanford University, and Cornell University—which all have exceptionally high vaccination rates—and others have announced they would shut their campuses due to a spike in cases over the past week. Cornell shut down its Ithaca, New York, campus and moved to “alert level red.”
Cornell officials reported some 900 COVID-19 cases in the past week—with many being the Omicron variant. The school has a 99 percent vaccination rate.
“Virtually every case of the Omicron variant to date has been found in fully vaccinated students, a portion of whom had also received a booster shot,” Vice President for University Relations Joel Malina said in a statement.”
Data integrity on Pfizer’s vax trial is questioned by whistle blower researcher | added December 20
Dear Mark Zuckerberg,[Nov. 2021] We are Fiona Godlee and Kamran Abbasi, editors of The BMJ, one of the world’s oldest and most influential general medical journals. We are writing to raise serious concerns about the “fact checking” being undertaken by third party providers on behalf of Facebook/Meta.
In September, a former employee of Ventavia, a contract research company helping carry out the main Pfizer covid-19 vaccine trial, began providing The BMJ with dozens of internal company documents, photos, audio recordings, and emails. These materials revealed a host of poor clinical trial research practices occurring at Ventavia that could impact data integrity and patient safety. We also discovered that, despite receiving a direct complaint about these problems over a year ago, the FDA did not inspect Ventavia’s trial sites.
The BMJ commissioned an investigative reporter to write up the story for our journal. The article was published on 2 November, following legal review, external peer review and subject to The BMJ’s usual high level editorial oversight and review.
$4.5 billion opioid settlement thrown out by federal judge | added December 20
A federal judge tossed out a roughly $4.5 billion settlement that would have capped losses to the Sackler family for the role their company, Purdue Pharma, allegedly played in driving the U.S. opioid epidemic, Reuters reported.
In a written opinion on Thursday, U.S. District Judge Colleen McMahon said the bankruptcy court lacked the power to grant the Sacklers the legal protection from future opioid litigation, which was the foundation of Purdue’s reorganization.
The U.S. Justice Department, eight states and more than 2,600 personal injury claimants had challenged Purdue’s bankruptcy reorganization, which was filed two years ago amid several thousand lawsuits that accused Purdue of aggressively marketing the painkiller OxyContin.
Plaintiff calculates FDA should take ’12 weeks’ to release vax trial data not 75 years | added December 20
A U.S. Department of Justice lawyer representing the FDA told the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas the agency will produce more than 329,000 related documents as fast as it can, while safeguarding personally identifiable information and Pfizer trade secrets.

CDC, media continues to gaslight autism families and decades of vax-related harm | added December 20
Media and public health officials perpetuated their entrenched practice of gaslighting autism families when earlier this month they trotted out the worn-out canard that a 23% rise in autism prevalence over a two-year period “reflects more awareness … rather than a true increase.”
The basis for this mean-spirited whopper was the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) release of its biennial report on autism prevalence as of 2018.
The report estimated autism affected 1 in 44 American 8-year-olds born in 2010 (2.27%). The CDC’s prior report estimated prevalence at 1 in 54 8-year-olds born in 2008 (1.85%).

And what a phenomenally fascist year it has been!
I’m not talking amateur fascism. I am talking professional Class-A fascism. Government and corporate sanctified fascism. Bug-eyed, spittle-flecked, hate-drunk fascism.
Mr. Blue and Maria: A musical dream | added December 20
Sixty years ago in the late fall and early winter, a seventeen-year-old blue-eyed Bronx boy went by himself to see an afternoon showing of West Side Story on Fordham Road in the north Bronx. He took the bus to the theater but walked the few miles home in a romantic daze, in love with Maria and yearning for a girl like that for himself.
The movie had mesmerized him, and though he knew about gang fights and the enmity between different ethnic groups, especially white prejudice against Puerto Ricans and blacks, he had never been involved in such violence.
It was real and not-real for him, and he was smart enough to realize that a movie was not real life and that great music had the anodyne power to enchant, and together with colorful moving pictures it could put one into a dream state that could be very powerful. There was a reason why Hollywood was called the “Dream Factory.”
A new GMO law falls short on consumer transparency | added December 20
The BE labeling law, known formally as the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard or NBFDS, was introduced in 2016 as a federal response to state-level GMO labeling campaigns. However, this law is not nearly as comprehensive as either the state laws it is meant to replace nor the Non-GMO Project Standard. With a comparatively limited scope, categorical exemptions and inconsistent labeling requirements, the BE labeling law is insufficient to protect a consumer’s right to know what’s in their food.
Bioengineered, or “BE” for short, is the federal government’s new term for GMOs. Under the Bioengineered Food labeling law, certain BE foods containing detectable modified genetic material must disclose the presence of BE ingredients.

Covid and the law of karma | added December 18
Let’s face it: many spiritual practitioners don’t have much of a ground game, at least when it comes to fighting totalitarian takeovers.
I’ve seen this writ small and large since the COVID operation started in early 2020. Many spiritual friends have been missing in action, unable to handle “the energy” of protest rallies. I appreciate that raising their frequency in private could shift things, but a lot of people (including children) may perish before the good vibes make a difference.
On the writ large level, I won’t soon forget seeing photos of Sadhguru hanging out with World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab.
NFL postpones week 15 games due to a ‘surge’ in covid cases | added December 18
A surge in COVID-19 cases across the NFL and United States as a whole has resulted in the postponement of multiple Week 15 games.

Raiders-Browns will air exclusively at 5 p.m. ET on NFL Network. Washington-Eagles and Seahawks-Rams will air at 7 p.m. ET on FOX.
CDC endorses blood clotting injections when data reveals the serious risks | added December 18
An advisory panel to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday voted 15 – 0 to “preferentially recommend” mRNA COVID vaccines Pfizer and Moderna over the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) shot for adults 18 years and older.
The recommendation came after the agency’s advisory panel said the rate of rare blood-clotting disorders following the J&J vaccine was higher than expected. The CDC signed off on the panel’s updated guidance late Thursday.
The Advisory Committee on Immunization and Practices (ACIP) effectively discouraged vaccine providers and adults from using the J&J’s shot — marking the first time the panel expressed a preference for a specific type of COVID vaccine.
Recent VAERS data shows 20,000+ deaths reported following covid injections | added December 18
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention today released new data showing a total of 965,843 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and Dec. 10, 2021, 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 20,244 reports of deaths — an increase of 358 over the previous week — and 155,506 reports of serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 4,560 compared with the previous week.
Excluding “foreign reports” to VAERS, 691,884 adverse events, including 9,295 deaths and 59,767 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and Dec. 10, 2021.
The entire pandemic will end when you turn off all screens, says the BMJ | added December 17
The pandemic will end when society decides to resume normal life rather than waiting for COVID “dashboards” to register zero cases, said the authors of an article published Tuesday in The BMJ.
“Pandemic dashboards provide endless fuel for news coverage, ensuring the constant newsworthiness of the COVID-19 pandemic, even when the threat is low,” wrote Peter Doshi, Ph.D., The BMJ senior editor, and David Robertson, a Ph.D. candidate in history at Princeton University.
“In doing so, they might prolong the pandemic by curtailing a sense of closure or a return to pre-pandemic life,” the authors wrote.
‘Many lives being destroyed’ by government’s failure to recognize natural immunity, advises Physician | added December 17
Dr. Marty Makary, a public health researcher at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, on Tuesday accused government officials of practicing “modern-day McCarthyism” against anyone who suggests young healthy people, especially those who recovered from COVID, don’t need booster shots.
Makary on Tuesday accused public health officials of “modern-day McCarthyism,” and publishing studies not worthy of “a 7th-grade science experiment.”
The public health researcher and professor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health told members of the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis some COVID policies have become “too extreme, too rigid and are no longer driven by clinical data.”
5 signs you don’t have ‘omicron’ but instead a cold and a PCR test | added December 17
They are determined to make the “Omicron Variant” appear as frightening as possible, that means getting as many cases as possible, which means flipping all the way to the front of the Covid playbook.
Enter “The 5 Signs You May Have Omicron Covid”, an article in the Metro yesterday, and repeated in spirit across dozens of other outlets.
For those of you feeling morbidly curious, here are the five signs of Omicron.
#23 covid commemorative coins, available on the White House website for purchase | added December 17
The White House Gift Shop is allowing online pre-orders for a coronavirus commemorative coin that costs $125. The website claims that 20 percent of proceeds will be “donated each day to U.S. hospitals including Johns Hopkins for its COVID-19 Coordination and Trackins [sic].”
The coin features the names of President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin, Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx, and Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci. It has a graphic of the COVID-19 virus on one side and the presidential podium on the other.
The coronavirus coin is the 11th in their “Historic Moments” collection. Other coins in the collection include one bearing Trump’s face and deemed a symbol of “the genius level thinking & proven successes of President Donald J. Trump.”
Botswana scientists who discovered ‘omicron’ are disappointment on the world response | added December 17
When the Botswanan scientists saw the sequences, they were stunned.
Four international travelers had tested positive for COVID-19 on Nov. 11, four days after entering the country. But when the cases were genetically sequenced, where the genetic code of the virus is analyzed to look for worrying changes, the scientists discovered a variant they had never encountered before.
And soon, they alerted the world to what would become known as the omicron variant.
The team in Botswana was headed by Sikhulile Moyo, the laboratory director at the Botswana-Harvard AIDS Institute Partnership and a research associate with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Moyo is quick to give credit to his entire team and to scientists working simultaneously on similarly alarming sequences in South Africa, for the discovery of omicron.
House of Lords committee says there is insufficient evidence to force covid mandates | added December 17
The Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee said that the government’s plans had not been thoroughly thought through, leaving the House of Lords unable to scrutinise the proposed legislation.
On 9 November England’s health and social care secretary, Sajid Javid, announced that all staff who work in health and social care settings regulated by the Care Quality Commission will have to be fully vaccinated by 1 April 2022.2 “We must avoid preventable harm and protect patients in the NHS, protect colleagues in the NHS, and protect the NHS itself,” he said.

U.S. military members challenge covid mandates and seek a new injunction | added December 17
U.S. military members involved in a lawsuit challenging the military’s COVID vaccine mandate on Dec. 10 filed an amended complaint seeking a new injunction.
The move came after a judge last month rejected the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DOD) assertion the Pfizer-BioNTech and Comirnaty COVID vaccines are “interchangeable, but before the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marines began discharging unvaccinated service members. In an interview with The Defender, attorney Travis Miller, who represents the 18 plaintiffs in Doe et al v. Austin, told The Defender:
“Our clients face comparable challenges. As our amended complaint alleges, the [U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s] ‘approval’ of the Comirnaty vaccine excluded testing on large segments of the American population, including those with previous COVID-19 infections (an alleged 3% of trial participants), pregnant women, and individuals with serious pre-existing conditions.”
Covid vax variability between lots – independent research by an international team | added December 16
Scientists compared variability between Flu vaccine lots with variability between Covid vaccine lots, and were shocked to find EXCESSIVE and HIGHLY UNUSUAL degree of variation between different lots of the Covid vaccines. When 22,000 flu vaccine lots were examined, almost all of them produced 5 or fewer severe adverse reactions per lot. Only 2 lots exceeded this (22 SAEs and 37 SAEs)
When the same number of Covid vaccines were compared, there was found to be huge variation – with many lots producing 5 or fewer severe adverse reactions , but many others producing 1000-5000 severe adverse reactions. So the coefficient of variation for Covid vaccines is 1000% – compared to the coefficient of variation for flu vaccines (which is 99%)
In other words, Covid vaccines vary 10 times more than flu vaccines.
A spillover of covid to pets? Some researchers say animals should also get injected | added December 16
Pets should be vaccinated against COVID-19, new research has warned — or they could become “reservoirs” for the virus. Though the exact origin of COVID-19 is unknown, a dominant theory is that it travelled from pangolin bats to humans.
According to a new Australian and international study — published in the PLOS ONE journal today — the virus has “spilled back” from people to cats, dogs, and lions.
Researchers performed genetic analysis on the COVID-19 strains found in animals worldwide and determined the strains are closely related to those found in humans in the same geographic regions.

‘Hamilton’ becomes latest Broadway show cancellation due to ‘breakthrough covid cases’ | added December 16
The hit musical tweeted the cancellation announcement at 7:09 pm ET, less than an hour before the scheduled 8 pm curtain time.
Hamilton is the latest Broadway productions to cancel performances due to breakthrough Covid cases, joining Tina – The Tina Turner Musical, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Ain’t Too Proud. Those shows, along with Mrs. Doubtfire and Freestyle Love Supreme, missed performances this week.
Dan Andrews ordered to front court for ‘concealing treason and fraud’ | added December 16
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has been summoned to appear before a criminal court on a charge of concealing treason was successfully filed with a court.
The charge was successfully filed with the Myrtleford Magistrates’ Court and Mr Andrews – or at least his legal representative – is listed to face the court on Friday at 9.30am.
While the prosecuting agency on the court record is listed as ‘unknown’, it is understood anti-lockdown campaigners Jim Rech and photographer Dezi Freeman had the matter listed privately.
Major Japanese medical bulletin warns risk of dying from covid injections for people in their 20’s maybe 40 times higher | added December 16
A major Japanese medical bulletin has warned that the risk of dying from the COVID-19 vaccine for people in their 20s maybe 40 times higher than the disease itself.
It was found that the risk of death of the vaccine might even be as astronomically high as 40 times more for the young, This was claimed by a review in the latest issue of Med Check which is a bimonthly bulletin published by the Japan Institute of Pharmacovigilance (NOPJIP) as a member of the International Society of Drug Bulletins (ISDB).
Regarding the reported deaths of individuals between the ages of 20 and 29 within one or two weeks after receiving the vaccination, Med Check estimates the death rate for that age at 3.2 deaths per each million doses administered.
The National Black Caucus of the U.S. Green Party says no to vaccine mandates | added December 16
WASHINGTON — The National Black Caucus of the Green Party of the United States strongly opposes the use of forced vaccination via mandates and the discrimination that is being generated around these policies
Today’s polarizing climate is competing for the trust and confidence of citizens more than ever before. The nature of power is changing and these changes are not measured simply by a degree of control by covid mandates and quarantines.
In today’s political environment, the speed and accessibility of information created “digital reflections” that made medical facts vulnerable, eroding trust between the White House administration, National Institute of Health, US Dept of Public Health, Center for Disease Control, and the World Health Organization. The fear of losing control in our fast paced social media environment is pushing us toward exclusion. Our current leaders, whether Congress or the White House administration, and even our current Steering Committee, should instead develop an instinct for inclusion.
Amtrak eases off vaccine mandates for employees, averting mass termination | added December 16
Amtrak said Tuesday it is suspending a vaccine mandate for employees, averting the termination of about 500 people and service cuts that were expected next month.
Railroad employees who aren’t vaccinated against the coronavirus will be allowed to submit to weekly testing, Amtrak Chief Executive William J. Flynn said in a memo to workers. The policy applies to the company’s 17,000 employees.
“After reviewing our system service plans in light of these changes, we do not anticipate having system-wide service impacts in January,” Flynn said.
Japan’s Health ministry lists heart inflammation in younger males as a serious side effect of Moderna and Pfizer injections | added December 15
The figures were 15.66 and 13.32 respectively for those who had the Pfizer vaccine.
The ministry held a panel of expert on Saturday and proposed warning of the risk by printing “serious side effects” on the documents attached to the vaccines.
Some comic relief in serious times — Vax mandates in a year from now | added December 15
311 athlete cardiac arrests, serious issues, 177 dead, after covid shot | added December 15
Update 10 Dec – 15 Dec: Added CJ McCollum, Adam Bounds, Stephanie Gard, Drake Geiger, chart updated, Demaryius Thomas, Brock Vogel, Keanu Breurs, Chuck “Kali Muscle” Kirkendall, Pavel Karpf, Lise Vidal, Eric Turner, Michele De Vecchi. Thanks to readers checking, thankfully, Sage Canaday did not die – he was in bed due to pneumonia and blood clots, and then overnight stay in hospital which he says is not vax related, but which started to happen a short time after his second Pfizer vaccine. His entry remains below, but with the red death marker removed. Ivan Douglas, former Buckeyes football player changed from affected by vax to May or may not, and Dead, because no proof yet he was vaxed, but apparently caught COVID. Updated Roider Cabrera status. Corrected Lemaitre name spelling.
It is definitely not normal for young athletes to suffer from cardiac arrests or to die while playing their sport, but this year it is happening. All of these heart issues and deaths come shortly after they got a COVID vaccine. While it is possible this can happen to people who did not get a COVID vaccine, the sheer numbers clearly point to the only obvious cause.
The so-called health professionals running the COVID vaccine programs around the world keep repeating that “the COVID vaccine is a normal vaccine and it is safe and effective.”
A concerned young Austrian man tells a horrifying account of what is planned for unvaxed people | added December 15
UNDER the aegis of its new Chancellor and former Minister of the Interior (overseeing the police) Karl Nehammer, Austria’s plans for criminalisation of the unvaccinated come into force next month.
I have been sent this video, which is one young Austrian man’s horrifying account of exactly what is planned for the unvaccinated in his country. It is a desperate plea for our help to bring international pressure to bear on his government. It needs to be shared as widely as possible. He asks us to make representation to our own MPs. He explains in detail what should be setting alarm bells ringing across Europe but that mainstream media are failing to properly report – in effect they are turning a blind eye. Unbelievably, history is repeating itself.
He details not just the plans for repeated fining of the unvaccinated, but also the planned imprisonment for those who refuse to or cannot pay the fines in a special prison for up to a year. This is the direct criminalisation of the unvaccinated who he says constitute one third of the Austrian population. It is unprecedented and in direct conflict with democracy. It cannot be allowed to happen.
Pa. Senate approves bill prohibiting covid vax mandate for K-12 students | added December 15
Returning to Harrisburg on Monday for the last session week of the year, Republicans in the Pennsylvania state Senate approved legislation prohibiting a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for K-12 students.
The bill, authored by Sen. Michele Brooks, R-Mercer, passed the upper chamber in a 28-21 vote along party lines. The legislation, which saw pushback from legislative Democrats, would prohibit schools from requiring kids to get a coronavirus vaccine to attend classes.
“This legislation is not about the vaccine itself; it is about parental options,” Brooks, whose Senate district has the fifth-lowest vaccination rate in the state, said on the floor. “There’s nothing more local than parental options.”
Ghana to fine airlines $3,500 for each passenger that is not ‘fully injected’ | added December 15
ACCRA, Ghana (AP) — Ghana will fine airlines $3,500 for each passenger who arrives in the West African country without being fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the latest measure taken by the country with some of the strictest restrictions in the region.
Airlines also will be penalized the same amount for passengers who did not fill out a health declaration form before boarding their flight to Kotoka International Airport, the state-owned Ghana Airport Company announced Monday.
While Ghanaians who fly in without meeting the requirement will be allowed to enter the country and undergo a 14-day quarantine, foreigners may be refused entry, the airport authority announced.
A Case Report: Rapid progression of Angioimmunoblastic T Cell Lymphoma following BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine booster | added December 15
Since nucleoside-modified mRNA vaccines strongly activate T follicular helper cells, it is important to explore the possible impact of approved SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines on neoplasms affecting this cell type. Herein, we report and discuss unexpected rapid progression of lymphomatous lesions after administration of a BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine booster in a man recently diagnosed with AITL.
The remarkable efficiency of nucleoside-modified SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines has been related to their ability to induce a potent stimulation of T follicular helper (TFH) cells, resulting in persistent germinal center B cell responses (1, 2). Clinically, this might translate into reactive lymphoadenopathy which sometimes may raise a differential diagnosis with a lymphoproliferative disorder (3, 4). At the same time, the possible impact of SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccination on pre-existing peripheral T cell lymphoma is still to be determined.
A 66-year-old man with no significant medical history except for hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and type 2 diabetes presented on September 1, 2021 with cervical lymphadenopathies that became recently apparent during a flu-like syndrome. The two doses of BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine had been administered, respectively, 5 and 6 months earlier in the left deltoid. Besides moderate asthenia, he did not report any constitutional symptom. Blood examination indicated a mild inflammatory syndrome, without anemia or white blood cell changes; Lymphocytes immunophenotyping was unremarkable. Protein electrophoresis and immunoglobulin levels were normal and Coombs test was negative.
Dr. Carrie Madej and Dr. Ardis learn from Pfizer whistleblower, Karen Kingston about vax ingredients | added December 14
Kingston speaks about the adverse side effects of covid-19 injections linked to myocarditis, pericarditis, myelitis, encephalitis, blood clots, neurological inflammation and many more ailments that may not present right away. Instead, some of these adverse events could happen over time and become even more dangerous considering how then people will be under the impression the injections cause no harm. Meanwhile, drug manufacturers are well aware of these reactions.
How a lab generated injection could decimate an entire species immune system | added December 14
Question– Does the Covid-19 vaccine damage the immune system?
Answer– It does. It impairs the body’s ability to fight infection, viruses and disease.
Question– If that’s true, then why haven’t more people died after getting vaccinated?
Answer– I’m not sure what you mean? The vaccine has killed more people than any vaccine in history. “So far, in the United States, the death toll is three times higher than the total of all vaccines in the last 35 years.” That’s simply astonishing. We’ve also seen a steady rise in all-cause mortality and excess deaths in the countries that launched mass vaccination campaigns earlier in the year. Sometimes the increase is as much as 20 percent over the five-year average. That is a massive spike in fatalities, and it’s largely attributable to the vaccine. So, what do you mean when you say, “Why haven’t more people died”? Did you expect to see people clutching their hearts and dropping dead after getting jabbed?
Monsanto to plead guilty to 30 environmental crimes, and pay 12 million fine | added December 14
In court documents filed last week in Hawaii, Monsanto Company agreed to plead guilty to 30 environmental crimes related to the use of a pesticide on cornfields in Hawaii, and the company further agreed to plead guilty to two other charges related to the storage of a banned pesticide that were the subject of a 2019 Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA).
Monsanto admitted in a plea agreement filed last week that it committed 30 misdemeanor crimes related to the use of a glufosinate ammonium-based product sold under the brand name Forfeit 280. After using the product in 2020 on corn fields on Oahu, Monsanto allowed workers to enter the fields during a six-day “restricted-entry interval” (REI) after the product was applied.
The plea agreement calls for Monsanto to serve three years of probation, pay a total of $12 million and continue for another three years a comprehensive environmental compliance program that includes third-party auditors.
Saratoga among N.Y. counties who will not enforce Hochul’s mask mandate | added December 14
ALBANY — More than a dozen county officials across New York, including in Saratoga County, have said they will not enforce an indoor mask mandate that went into effect on Monday, three days after some county executives said they were told by Gov. Kathy Hochul’s administration to avoid diverting resources to crack down on violations of the order.
That direction, according to Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro, came on a weekly regional leadership call with state and Hudson Valley officials.
At a lengthy news conference on Monday, Hochul reinforced her hope that people will follow the directive to wear masks indoors, adding she is seeking to avoid having state workers enforce the new mask policy.
Coroner investigates a vaccinated Dunedin man’s death after he complained of heart fluttering problems | added December 14
The death of a Dunedin man is being investigated by New Zealand health officials and the coroner to ascertain whether it could be connected to the Covid-19 vaccine he received 12 days earlier. Rory James Nairn, 26, died on November 17 at the home he shared with his fiancee Ashleigh Wilson.
His death has been referred to the coroner and the exact cause is yet to be determined. Mr Nairn received his first dose of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine on November 5.
Health officials are also aware of Mr Nairn’s death but cannot comment because of the coronial investigation. Ms Wilson said it was frustrating not to have any clear answers and she decided to share Mr Nairn’s story. She said whether his death was vaccine-related or not, he should have been made more aware of potential side effects.
FEMA arrives in tornado hit Kentucky with covid injections | added December 14
The often-sluggish Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) arrived in Kentucky only hours after a freak mid-December tornado outbreak laid waste entire towns and killed over 100 people in a quad-state massacre. The disaster relief agency, however, brought more Covid-19 vaccinations than it did blankets, food, and bottled water, a clear sign that the Deep State-run organization is still trying to coerce law-abiding Americans into taking the jab.
In September Real Raw News reported exclusively on a similar event that took place in Louisiana, in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida. Residents displaced by the storm got a FEMA ultimatum: Take the jab or forget about entering the disaster zone to recover personal belongings. A FEMA whistleblower told RRN that the agency tricked 500 Louisianians into getting the clot shot.
And since FEMA doesn’t let a good disaster go to waste, it’s up to its old tricks again.
As morning sunlight revealed the devastation in tornado-ravaged Mayfield, Kentucky, hundreds of FEMA personnel, some armed, and hospital nurses conscripted into serving the federal government, rolled into a city turned warzone.
Nassau County Executive-elect Bruce Blakeman will not enforce Gov. Hochul’s mandates | added December 14
Nassau County Executive-elect Bruce Blakeman will not enforce Gov. Kathy Hochul’s mandate that all businesses either require patrons to wear a face covering or require proof of vaccination, a spokesperson for Blakeman confirmed Monday.
The statewide reinstatement of the mask mandate went into effect Monday and will continue through Jan. 15, at which time the governor said she will re-evaluate it. Blakeman takes office in Nassau on Jan. 1.
“My administration will move Nassau forward with a common sense approach that acknowledges the facts, science, and progress made by our residents while also protecting businesses and jobs from any further damage created by government mandates,” Blakeman said in a statement. “Nassau County is not in crisis, and should not be painted with the same broad brush as the rest of the state. 97% of adults in Nassau County have received at least their first dose of the vaccine, and Nassau hospitals have adequate capacity to handle existing demand.”
U.S. Supreme Court denies emergency bid to block the enforcement of New York’s covid mandates | added December 14
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday denied an emergency bid to block enforcement of New York’s coronavirus vaccine mandate for health care workers.
The legal challenge was filed by a group of 20 doctors and nurses who argued that the state’s vaccine mandate violates the First Amendment to the Constitution because it fails to include a religious exemption.
The request for a temporary injunction had been presented to Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who is assigned to handle cases from New York. The court denied that request in a one-line order that did not provide any reasoning or explanation.
Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch and Samuel Alito — three of the court’s six-member conservative majority — said in the order that they would have granted the bid to block the mandate.

Dean of NYU Jack Knott tells Mark Crispin Miller he violated no teaching rules: Miller’s Libel suit now bolstered | added December 13
“On Wednesday afternoon (12/8), I was informed by Jack Knott, Dean of NYU’s Steinhardt School, that his office’s “review” of my “conduct,” carried out at the insistence of my department colleagues last October, finds that my teaching has not violated any of NYU’s policies, and, therefore, that the university will take no further action in my “case” (as there isn’t one).
This is, of course, good news; so it may be churlish of me to observe that, since they came to that conclusion in the spring, they might have let me know before this week.
In any case, this decision is a great relief, for two reasons.
First, I no longer have to worry that I might be harried any further by the university (over this matter, anyway); and, second, through this formal exculpation, NYU has, tacitly, disavowed my colleagues’ slanderous petition to the dean back in October, 2020, demanding that he order that “review”—because, they argued, my “conduct” in the classroom had violated NYU policy.
Unlawful arrests at mask mandate hearing – hypocrisy reins in court | added December 13
SPRINGFIELD, MA – The recent unlawful arrests of the New Hampshire nine silent protestors (NH 9), followed by the arrest of two people without masks during a recent Massachusetts hearing (all of whom were handcuffed and incarcerated) begs the question—are we now living in a Police State?
“A policy is not law,” said Kevin Mackie on Tuesday, October 26th at the Hampden County Superior Court. “Rights are protected by law. The court’s policy violates the law, and it violates the first amendment.” But the court wasn’t having it.
Mackie was among approximately 50 attendees of a hearing on mask mandates, which was the consolidation of multiple cases heard by Judge David Hodge. The cases challenge the authority of the Department of Elementary & Secondary Education to mandate the financially incentivized continuation of universal masking for all school children.
LAUSD pushes back deadline for student covid injections due to thousands refusing the jab | added December 13
The Los Angeles school district is poised to remove its Jan. 10 student COVID-19 vaccine mandate, confronted with more than 30,000 students 12 and older who are not fully vaccinated and would otherwise be barred from campus, a significant step back from one of the nation’s strictest student vaccine mandates and a reprieve for parents who defied the rule.
Under a proposal from interim Supt. Megan Reilly, enforcement of the January deadline would be suspended until fall of 2022, the start of the next school year.
Though the mandate has probably resulted in thousands of students being inoculated — making campuses more protected from outbreaks — the district also was faced with the reality of tens of thousands of students being unable to attend in-person class under the rules. Unvaccinated students would have been placed in an existing independent study program, called City of Angels, that has struggled since the start of the year and would be hard-pressed to manage the sudden and potentially overwhelming influx.
German schoolchildren subjected to school humiliation | added December 13
Schoolchildren in Germany are being subjected to ritual humiliation by being forced to divulge their vaccination status in front of their class on a daily basis, with unjabbed kids being questioned as to why they haven’t received it.
Yes, really.The shocking development, which has been covered by German media outlets, was explained by journalist Alex Story.
“It’s essentially about the ritual humiliation of children who are asked to go to the front of the class and state their vaccination status daily,” Story told GB News.
Cyber attacks on Brazilian Ministry cause the loss of covid vax data | added December 13
Websites under Brazil’s Ministry of Health (MoH) have suffered a major ransomware attack that resulted in the unavailability of COVID-19 vaccination data of millions of citizens.
Following that attack that took place at around 1 am today, all of MoH’s websites, including ConecteSUS, which tracks the trajectory of citizens in the public healthcare system, became unavailable. This includes the COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate, which is available via the ConecteSUS app
According to a message left by the Lapsus$ Group, which has claimed responsibility for the attack, some 50TB worth of data has been extracted from the MoH’s systems and subsequently deleted. “Contact us if you want the data returned”, the message said, alongside contact details for the authors of the attack.

Doctors for Covid Ethics, in association with UK Column, present their second symposium, “Sounding the Call”. Expert talks and panel discussions on the current medical and legal landscape of the Covid narrative.
Topics covered include the increasing evidence that the covid “vaccines” can cause heart inflammation (as well as other side effects), and the legality and enforceability of any potential vaccine mandates, as well as the status of legal challenges and court cases.
Featured speakers include Dr Sucharit Bhakdi, Catherine Austin Fitts, Dr Michael Yeadon and many, many more.
De Blasio gave away student DNA to Chinese lab linked to testing | added December 11
If someone told you the mayor of New York City forced all school staff and students to give their DNA specimens to a laboratory with links to the Chinese government, you would think it was the plot of a bad B-movie.
Unfortunately it is the reality in NYC under Mayor Bill de Blasio and the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) union.
De Blasio contracted with “Fulgent Genetics” to perform covid testing in NYC Schools for the 2020 school year. The tests were mandatory and if you didn’t consent employees were placed on unpaid leave and students were kicked out of their school buildings.
Australia to inject 5-11 years with Pfizer vax by next month | added December 11
Children as young as five years old will become eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in Australia beginning next month, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on Friday.
“In one month from today, around 2.27 million Aussie kids aged five to 11 years will have the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated against COVID-19,” Morrison said in a statement.
“This will bring great relief to so many mums and dads, who now have a choice on what’s best for their kids. They can have peace of mind knowing this has the tick from the best medical regulators in the world,” he added.
DISCUSS: The Extradition of Julian Assange | added December 10
UK court has ordered that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange can be extradited to the United States. The decision overturns an earlier ruling, from January this year, that found Assange could not be extradited due to the impact confined US prison conditions could have on his mental health.
Assurances from the US that Assange would not be held in confined conditions, unless he committed a further crime, were accepted by the high court as the basis for overturning the original verdict.
Assange has been in Belmarsh prison since 2019, and detained in one manner or another since 2010 when he sought political asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
Medicare Data Shows 48,465 Deaths Over 80 Within 14 Days Of Shots: Scrubbed As Non Vaccinated: Renz | added December 10
Over 1/4 of Remdesivir Treated Died Within 14 Days, Mostly Kidney Failure
This below was submitted as a comment by Edmond Paré. It is of critical importance, as a follow up to the Pfizer smoking gun documents, which Gate funded “fact checkers” are busy denying. [Their essential “Correction” is this: 1. People die, ok? 2. Anyone can file a VAERS report. (Displaying elite contempt for ordinary people.)
At 3:53 of the Thomas Renz video linked below, he reveals raw data from the Medicare servers, “CMS servers.” 18.1% of Americans are on Medicare, or 59.4 million people.
48,465 people over the age of 80 died within 14 days or their first or second dose. “This is raw data,” says Renz. “Raw. There’s no analysis.” He goes on the remind us of the insult-to-injury fact that the system rigged it such that if a person dies within 2 weeks of a a ‘vaccine,’ they are counted as unvaccinated.
Roughly 11,000 Air Guard, Reserve members miss vax mandate deadline | added December 10
WASHINGTON — More than 6% of the Air National Guard and Reserve did not meet the deadline to get the COVID-19 vaccine, and could begin to face consequences if they don’t get the mandated shots or receive an exemption, the Air Force said Friday.
Air Guard members who report for their monthly drill this weekend will be allowed to participate and will be paid – whether they are vaccinated or not, but those without shots will have the opportunity to get the vaccine when they report to their base, according to Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek.
The Air Force said roughly 11,000 troops did not get the vaccine by the deadline Thursday. There are about 107,000 Air Guard members and 68,000 in the Reserves, and about 3,500 of the unvaccinated have received medical or administrative exemptions. The unvaccinated total, however, could be a bit lower than the data show so far. Officials have cautioned that the information for the Guard and Reserves may lag, as some of the citizen airmen could have gotten shots at local pharmacies and have not yet filed their data with the service.
Medical board deletes anti-misinformation policy due to GOP pressure | added December 10
Tennessee’s medical licensing board voted Tuesday to delete a policy opposing coronavirus misinformation from its website due to fears a powerful conservative lawmaker would otherwise dissolve the board and replace its members.
The policy, unanimously adopted by the Board of Medical Examiners in September, establishes that doctors who spread demonstrably untrue information about COVID-19 vaccines could have their licenses suspended or potentially revoked. Members voted 7 to 3 to delete — but not rescind — the policy.
The deletion was spurred by Rep. John Ragan, R-Oak Ridge, a co-chair of the Joint Government Operations Committee, who insisted board members don’t have the authority to create a new disciplinary offense without the approval of lawmakers on his committee.
Senate votes to repeal Biden’s vax mandate on private businesses | added December 10
The U.S. Senate on Wednesday voted 52 – 48 to overturn President Joe Biden’s COVID vaccine mandate for private businesses with more than 100 employees.
The vote came one day after a U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of Georgia, issued a 28-page ruling suspending the mandate nationwide.
Republican Senators seeking to overturn Biden’s mandate used a law called the Congressional Review Act (CRA) which allows Congress to overturn federal regulations and requires just a simple majority vote in both the Senate and House.
Covid injections. So what is really in them? Do we even know? | added December 10
Liberalism in Europe is not only under threat. It has in some parts already been extinguished.
As the first European nation to mandate COVID-19 injections, Austria will criminalize those who refuse the injections. Germany has since followed suit. Greeks will need to pay their government a monthly fee of €100 every month if they remain jab-free.
On Monday night Queensland-based medical doctor, Robert Brennan, told those of us attending the weekly World Council for Health meeting that doctors in Australia who are de-licensed for speaking out about lockdowns, testing or injection risks will be criminally charged for impersonation if they continue to use their doctor title.
FDA now asks federal judge to allow 75 years to release Pfizer’s covid vax data | added December 10
A prior post explained that the FDA has asked a federal judge to make the public wait until the year 2076 to disclose all of the data and information it relied upon to license Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. Literally, a 55-year delay. My firm, on behalf of PHMPT, asked that this information be disclosed in 108 days – the same amount of time it took for the FDA to review and license Pfizer’s vaccine.
The Court ordered the parties to submit briefs in support of their respective positions by December 6, 2021. The FDA’s brief, incredibly, doubles down. It now effectively asks to have until at least 2096 to produce the Pfizer documents. Not a typo. A total of at least 75 years.
Other than producing an initial ~12,000 pages in around two months, the FDA thereafter only wants to commit to producing 500 pages per month. The FDA also disclosed that it actually has approximately at least 451,000 pages to produce.*
There’s no end in sight for vax mandate programs, according to New Zealand Prime Minister | added December 9
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has candidly revealed that “there’s not going to be an end point to this vaccination program.”
“So long as there’s people who are eligible who haven’t been vaccinated, we’ve got work to do,” said Ardern.
“Do you know, I don’t think I’ll ever be satisfied so long as there’s someone who is eligible and hasn’t been (vaccinated),” she added.
NYC injection mandate blocked by judge for a blow to Bill de Blasio | added December 9
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for New York City employees, including the NYPD, has been blocked by a Manhattan court.
On Tuesday, Judge Frank P. Nervo in the Supreme Court of New York gave notice that the mandate was suspended, pending a hearing scheduled for December 14.
Patricia Finn, an attorney who describes herself on Twitter as “The Good Health Lawyer New Yotk (sic),” launched the legal challenge against the mayor’s mandate. She regularly espouses anti-vaccination views on her social media accounts.
LAUSD votes to fire nearly 500 unjabbed workers who reject the strict vax mandates | added December 9
LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Unified School District school board has voted unanimously to fire nearly 500 workers who did not follow a district mandate to get vaccinated.
“We care deeply about all of our employees,” Interim Superintendent Megan K. Reilly said. “Parting ways with individuals who choose not to be vaccinated is an extremely difficult, but necessary decision to ensure the safety of all in our school communities. We wish everyone the best in their future endeavors and encourage everyone to get vaccinated.”
The district required all workers to get their first dose by the middle of October and be fully vaccinated by Nov. 15., though it did make exemptions for medical or religious reasons.
Mom says son was vaxed in exchange for pizza at LAUSD without her parental consent | added December 9
Jennifer Kennedy, an attorney who is following closely the two cases against the LAUSD over the vaccine mandate currently making their way through court, said the problem is that kids in California can’t consent to vaccination.
Maribel Duarte says her 13-year-old son, a student at the Barack Obama Global Prep Academy in South LA, brought home a vaccine card after having accepted the COVID-19 vaccine at school.
She says he said yes when someone offered it in exchange for pizza. “The lady that gave him the shot and signed the paper told my son, ‘Please don’t say anything. I don’t want to get in trouble.'”
Are majority of Americans “anti-vaxers”? | added December 9
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “anti-vaxxer” as “a person who opposes … regulations mandating vaccination.”
So, if you oppose a vaccine requirement, you are an anti-vaxxer. Well, an official NBC News Survey by Hart Research found that 50% of American adults opposed “requiring that everyone who is now eligible must get a COVID-19 vaccine.” It appears half of Americans are now officially anti-vaxxers.
Pharma giants ramp up lobbying to diminish law that protects whistleblowers | added December 9
Pfizer and other pharmaceutical industry players are stepping up lobbying efforts in hope of defeating proposed legislation intended to strengthen protection for whistleblowers, The Intercept reported.
Pfizer has hired a well-connected lobbyist, Hazen Marshall, and the law firm Williams & Jensen, to lobby against the False Claims Amendments Act of 2021.
The legislation, introduced in July, would expand key aspects of the existing False Claims Act by strengthening the original law’s anti-retaliation provisions, and by installing new safeguards against industry-level blacklisting of whistleblowers seeking employment.
Watch Here: Calgary police officer gives emotional response to loosing his career for not getting injected | added December 9
A 24-year Calgary Police Service veteran has spoken of his emotional turmoil as he faces losing his job a year before retirement for refusing a COVID-19 vaccination.
Const. Brian Denison said he made the video on September 29. He is wearing a CPS uniform and appears to be sitting in a police vehicle.
“I have to choose between getting this miracle jab that the government is touting or possibly lose my job,” Denison said in the 10-minute video.
Data scientist breaks down the VAERS reporting of injection injuries | added December 8
On a recent episode of “The Defender” podcast, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. interviewed data scientist and immunology researcher Jessica Rose, Ph.D., about the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and what it tells us about COVID vaccine injuries, especially among children..
“VAERS is telling a very frightening story,” Rose told Kennedy.
VAERS data show 618,548 adverse event reports (as of Oct. 29), but that number doesn’t account for under-reporting, explained Rose. (As of Nov. 19, the latest VAERS data show 664,745 adverse events, excluding foreign reports).
Elon Musk announces the plan to implant microchips into the brains of humans in 2022 | added December 8
Elon Musk has said that Neuralink, his brain-interface technology company, hopes to start implanting its microchips in humans next year.
Neuralink, cofounded by Musk in 2016, is developing a chip that would be implanted in people’s brains to simultaneously record and stimulate brain activity. It’s intended to have medical applications, such as treating serious spinal-cord injuries and neurological disorders.
During a livestreamed interview at The Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council Summit on Monday, Musk was asked what Neuralink planned to do in 2022.
Omicron ushers in billion dollar pay days for top Pfizer and Moderna shareholders | added December 8
In the week after news of the Omicron variant hit the headlines, the CEOs and major shareholders of Moderna and Pfizer made a combined $10.31 billion, according to data compiled by the UK-based Global Justice Now.
Shares of Moderna jumped 13.61% — $273.39 to $310.61 — between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, while Pfizer shares increased 7.41% — $50.91 to $54.68, Common Dreams reported.
Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel saw his shares increase from $6.1 billion to $6.9 billion, for a gain of $824 million. Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, saw gains of $339,291.
Illinois proposes a bill that eliminates medical insurance for unvaxed | added December 8
llinois Representative Jonathan Carroll wants to push through a change to the state’s insurance law that would mean health insurers no longer have to cover unvaccinated people who get Covid, forcing people to pay their medical bills out of pocket.
The potential corruption and abuse of such a rule should be obvious to anyone familiar with just how mendacious insurance companies can be.
In all likelihood insurance companies will simply demand a negative Covid test before paying anything, and if you test positive, no matter what you were treated for, you will be called a “covid case” and forced to pay out of pocket.
120 teens hospitalized, 3 dead, after Pfizer injection rollout for 15-17 year olds in Vietnam | added December 8
The Vietnamese province of Thanh Hoa suspended a batch of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID vaccine after more than 120 teens were hospitalized after being vaccinated.
According to the province’s Center for Disease Control (CDC), the teens were hospitalized for symptoms ranging from nausea and high fevers to breathing difficulties — with 17 children exhibiting severe reactions.
Thanh Hoa authorities have yet to confirm Pfizer’s COVID vaccine caused the teens’ symptoms, VN Express International reported.
5-year-old dies 4 days after Pfizer shot, according to CDC VAERS data | added December 8
The data included a total of 19,532 reports of deaths — an increase of 283 over the previous week — and 146,720 reports of serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 3,325 compared with the previous week.
Excluding “foreign reports” to VAERS, 672,373 adverse events, including 8,986 deaths and 57,143 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and Nov. 26, 2021.
Scientists want to know why Africa Has 17.46% of World’s Population and only 3% of world’s covid deaths | added December 8
Whether or not lockdowns, shutdowns and other restrictive measures can work to lower the number of COVID-19 infections and deaths has been a topic of great debate since early 2020.
As health experts look at global statistics, they have been stymied by the low rate of infection and death across the sub-Saharan African continent, compared to industrialized nations that used various lockdown procedures to contain the spread.
Across the world, countries have taken different approaches to address the spread of SARS-CoV-2. In one short documentary released by CAN films, a comparison is made between the COVID-19 outcomes in Scotland and Sweden.
Information wars and the Australian outback | added December 8
For several years now, David Cole has been a minor celebrity in the Northern Territory of Australia on account of his colorful conspiracy theories. While few people take anything he has to say seriously, many of us in the Territory enjoy wondering what he’s going to come up with next. Cole believes that the Hillsong Church in Sydney carries out child sacrifices, that Australia is a registered corporate entity of the Vatican, and that all police officers here are therefore privately owned. He has even helped a woman argue in court that the law didn’t apply to her (to the surprise of no-one, she lost).
His beliefs about the Vatican somehow dovetail with his belief in a New World Order, a secret cabal that seeks to implement a world totalitarian government.
It is hardly a surprise, then, that Cole’s statements about the pandemic have been monumentally confused. He believes that sunlight can cure COVID-19; that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is an American bioweapon released against China; that the virus is also a myth; and that the pandemic is a hoax.
MP enjoys a packed party maskless after saying she feels ‘unsafe’ around those who don’t wear one | added December 7
An MP who claimed she felt “unsafe” around people who don’t wear masks proudly posted maskless photos of herself to Twitter enjoying a party surrounded by people not wearing masks.
“I feel incredibly unsafe in the chamber,” when Tories don’t wear masks Labour MP Zarah Sultana stated during a recent BBC News interview.
Those fears were apparently absent when Sultana visited the MOBO awards in Coventry, during which she was photographed in close proximity to others at an indoor event attended by thousands.

New York City becomes first in nation to impose injection mandates on private sector employers | added December 7
Employers in New York City must require COVID-19 vaccinations for their workers under new rules announced Monday by Mayor Bill de Blasio. This is the first-of-its-kind mandate for private-sector employees, CBS New York reports.
The vaccine mandate for private businesses is aimed at preventing a spike in COVID-19 infections during the holiday season and the colder months, the mayor said.
“This is how we put health and safety first by ensuring there is a vaccine mandate that reaches everyone universally in the private sector,” de Blasio said. “We’re going to do this so that every employer is on a level playing field, one universal standard.”
More than 40,000 people marched through Vienna to protest against lockdowns and injection mandates | added December 7
Faced with a surge in infections, the government last month made Austria the first country in Western Europe to reimpose a lockdown and said it would make vaccinations mandatory from February.
People carried signs saying: “I will decide for myself”, “Make Austria Great Again”, and “New Elections” – a nod to the political turmoil that has seen three chancello
Digital covid travel passes will soon be available in 30 states — Here’s how technocrats are trying to sell them | added December 7
If Covid-19 has taught travelers anything over the past two years, it is that this pandemic is not going away anytime soon. Another reality: Travelers are being asked more often to show proof of vaccination at different points along a trip, whether that is to board an international flight, dine at a particular restaurant, visit a certain museum or attend a concert or play.
This trend cannot be dismissed as merely a coastal phenomenon. Bindle, a health verification app that helps venues verify attendees’ vaccine status, has hundreds of clients spanning more than 30 states, from blue strongholds like California and New York to red leaners like Texas, Florida, Arkansas, Missouri and Georgia.
“In the past four months, Bindle has seen a 10X increase in inbound requests for our technology,” says the company’s CEO, Gus Warren, as “more and more locations recognize A) the virus is becoming endemic and B) fraudulent paper credentials are an ongoing issue and challenge.”
New strict vaccine mandates require children to be jabbed in order to enter restaurants, gyms, theaters, and more | added December 7
New York City will require proof of coronavirus vaccination for children ages 5 to 11 to enter restaurants, gyms, theaters and other places.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the mandate on Monday morning, citing the new Omicron variant and ongoing Delta surge as reasons to take a new step to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. The mayor also announced a “first-in-the-nation” vaccine mandate for all private sector workers that goes into effect December 27.
“We’ve got Omicron as a new factor,” de Blasio said on MSNBC. “We’ve got the colder weather, which is going to really create new challenges with the Delta variant. We’ve got holiday gatherings. We in New York City have decided to use a preemptive strike to really do something bold to stop the further growth of COVID and the dangers it poses to all of us.”
German data shows the higher vaccinated rate, the higher the excess mortality | added December 7
Researchers Prof. Dr. Rolf Steyer and Dr. Gregor Kappler conducted an analysis examining excess mortality in all 16 German states during weeks 36 to 40. The analysis compared states with higher vaccination rates versus those with lower vaccination rates. The analysis showed: the higher the vaccination rate, the higher the excess mortality.
Prof. Steyer is professor emeritus of Friedrich Schiller University with a research interest is in the theory of causality and the theory of latent variables. Dr. Kappler is a Multivariate Statistical Methods lecturer, senior data scientist and software developer.
Dr. Ute Berner, an experimental physicist and Member of Thüringen State Parliament, commissioned the two statisticians, Prof. Steyer and Dr. Kappler, to investigate whether there was a connection between the vaccination rate and excess mortality across Germany.
Coronavirus Fact-Check #13: “ICUs are filled with the unvaccinated” | added December 7
It’s become a common meme to refer to ICU’s being “filled” with the unvaccinated, but is there any truth to that?
Television presenters and news headlines across the United Kingdom have commonly referred to hospitals being filled with unvaccinated covid19 patients.
This claim is regularly used as an argument for vaccine mandates, and/or unvaxxed-only lockdowns.
But is it true?
In a word, no.
Court-Ordered Pfizer Documents They Tried To Have Sealed For 55 years Show 1223 Deaths, 158,000 Adverse Events in 90 Days Post EUA Release | added December 6
Dear readers of my Substack,
I want to tell you urgently that I am sitting here, as shocked as I can remember being, since I began reporting on pharmaceutical and government/ pharmaceutical predation in 1987/1988, at a rock magazine called SPIN. I’ve spent most of my life shocked, often disoriented, wondering if I can believe my own eyes, and trying to square the countless attacks on my own sanity with what appears to be the impossibly dark truth. For years I processed the relentless violence as some kind of possibility that I had missed something. I don’t anymore. Everybody who has failed to oppose this is complicit in mass murder.
There are not “two sides.” Pfizer itself can explain exactly why all the people dropping dead have died, but they felt it should be hidden for 55 years, so they could continue to murder and maim without interference. The mass media is the engine of the catastrophe, the sine qua non.
Most smoking guns are not really smoking guns, but this one is.
A group called “Public Health and Medical Professional For Transparency Documents” sued the FDA for the release of Pfizer’s documents concerning adverse events from their Covid “vaccine”, which Pfizer fought to have concealed 55 years, but a courageous judge ordered them released anyway.
Pfizer document exposes FDA criminal cover-up of vax deaths in early 2021 | added December 6
One confidential document in particular was part of a court-ordered release of FDA files that the FDA fought by claiming the agency should have 55 years to release this information. A court judge disagreed and ordered the release of 500 documents per month, and the very first batch of documents contained this bombshell entitled, “Cumulative Analysis of Post-Authorization Adverse Event Reports.”
The document reveals that within just 90 days after the EUA release of Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine, the company was already aware of voluntary adverse reaction reports that revealed 1,223 deaths and over 42,000 adverse reports describing a total of 158,893 adverse reactions. The reports originated from numerous countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, France, Portugal, Spain and other nations.
Italian man tries to get covid jab with a fake silicone arm | added December 6
MILAN (AP) – A dentist in Italy faces possible criminal charges after trying to receive a coronavirus vaccine in a fake arm made of silicone.
A nurse in the northern city of Biella, Filippa Bua, said she could tell right away that something was off when a man presented the phony limb for a shot on Thursday.
“When I uncovered the arm, I felt skin that was cold and gummy, and the color was too light,’’ Bua told Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.
Biden dishes out his plan to ‘Inject the World’ | added December 6
President Joe Biden has vowed to not force the nation into yet another lockdown as the new Covid-19 strain spreads. Apart from encouraging vaccination at home, Biden said the US “must vaccinate the world.”
Biden outlined his coronavirus policy for the upcoming months in an op-ed published in USA Today on Thursday. In the piece, the president said that the rapid spread of the new Omicron variant, which has already spilled over to the US, “is a cause of concern,” but not “for panic.”
In an apparent bid to alleviate fears that the new strain could bring economic recovery to a grinding halt, Biden claimed that he was not considering any sweeping restrictions.
Jersey Strong: NJ GOP lawmakers refuse to comply with injection mandates and leave assembly floor | added December 6
Several New Jersey Republican state Assembly members refused to comply with a new statehouse COVID-19 policy, walking past state police officers enforcing the rules and refusing to leave the Assembly floor.
“We’re standing up for people who haven’t gotten or can’t get the vaccine and those who have natural immunity,” Republican Assemblyman Jay Webber, one of the lawmakers who refused to comply with the new rules, told Fox News Thursday.
At issue was a new rule issued by Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, both Democrats, Thursday that mandated lawmakers show either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test from up to 72 hours prior to entering the Senate or Assembly chambers.

The NHS is forecasting there will be 230,000 new cases of post-traumatic stress disorder in England as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, official figures show.
Covid-19 has increased exposure to events that could cause PTSD, an anxiety disorder triggered by very stressful, frightening or distressing events, according to the Royal College of Psychiatrists. It says the NHS is already facing the biggest backlog of those waiting for mental health help in its history.
Forecasts cited by the college from the NHS strategy unit, which carries out NHS analysis, show there could be as many as 230,000 new PTSD referrals between 2020/21 and 2022/23 in England, which suggests a rise of about 77,000 cases a year on average.

A microchip containing your injection passport can now be embedded in your hand | added December 6
Things are starting to get really weird. What I am about to share with you sounds very strange, but it is all true. Before I get into it, let me ask you a question. If you could have a vaccine passport permanently embedded into your hand, would you do it? Amazingly, some people in Sweden are willingly doing this to themselves.
They are putting microchips that contain their vaccine passport information into their hands, and they are raving about how convenient this is. You can actually watch a video of this being done to someone right here. The video is not in English, but you will be able to understand what is happening.
I was absolutely floored when I first watched that. Do they not understand where this could lead? Society is increasingly being divided into two classes of people, and the class of people that is willingly conforming is being granted many “privileges” that the other group is being denied.
Some Tennessee hospitals among entities that still uphold Hippocratic Oath and do not require injections| added December 5
Editor’s Note: The Hippocratic Oath is an ethical covenant that every phyisican is required to take before practicing medicine. One branch of the original oath is: “I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.” It is safe to say with the current censorship, invasion of privacy, and injection mandates that these ethical guidelines are quickly and right before our eyes, being forgotten. — mmd
Hospitals are among Tennessee entities banned from asking workers for proof of COVID vaccination, the Tennessee Hospital Association said.
State Comptroller Jason Mumpower announced a reversal of a number of exemptions that allowed entities to employ COVID measures against a state law that restricted them. Court rulings that also blocked a few of President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates were cited, the Associated Press reported.
The state law does allow for health care organizations to require proof of vaccination, but only for “valid and enforceable” Medicare and Medicaid rules. The hospital association said that one of the court rulings “effectively eliminates” the exemption for hospitals.
R.I. to release a covid vax passport app that barcodes your chemical injection status | added December 5
PROVIDENCE — Rhode Island plans to release a proof-of-vaccination passport program in the form of an app, staff members in the governor’s office told the Globe on Wednesday.
The app, called 401 Health, will include a QR code that can be scanned to confirm that the individual is fully vaccinated against the virus, according to Joseph Wendelken, a spokesman for the state health department.
“We are converting the Crush COVID app into a more comprehensive health app. Rather than a passport, it is more a Health Smart Card,” said Wendelken in an email to the Globe.
“Post Pandemic Stress Disorder”…seriously? | added December 3
Doctors are warning that hundreds of thousands of people in the UK could be at increased risk of heart disease or cardiac events.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, psychological therapist Mark Rayner and vascular surgeon Tahir Hussein said that the UK could see “300,000 new patients with heart issues” in the near future.
What’s to blame? Well, that would be “Post Pandemic Stress Disorder”. A new condition “yet to be recognised”, even though “many experts believe it should be”.
Glen Greenwald discusses Fauci’s overseeing of inhumane and cruel experiments on animals | added December 3
Journalist Glenn Greenwald made comments on Hill.TV’s “Rising” about criticism Anthony Fauci is facing with regard to government-funded experiments on animals.
Greenwald said on Thursday that his concern with experiments on beagles are “not just about grotesque and morally atrocious experimentation on dogs and animals” but also about “how media disinformation functions in order to serve partisan aims.”
“The agency controlled by Dr. Fauci acknowledges that it funds – and its agencies oversee – thousands of experiments on dogs,” Greenwald added, noting that the experiments have “almost no medical value.”
The case for compulsory vaccinations is dead… Omicron just killed it | added December 3
“It is understandable and appropriate to lead this discussion now – how we can encourage and potentially think about mandatory vaccination within the European Union. This needs discussion, this needs a common approach, but I think it’s a discussion that has to be led.”
Of course, the idea that the EU nations are going to “debate” mandatory vaccinations is a joke, they are more likely to enforce them no matter what. But any real, rational debate was over as soon as the EU and the vaccine manufacturers both admitted that the vaccines do not work.
Corporations rake in record breaking pandemic profits while blaming labor costs are ‘too high’ | added December 3
New data released by the Commerce Department shows that over the last two quarters of 2021, U.S. corporations outside the finance sector have raked in their largest profits since 1950 — a windfall that belies CEO gripes about rising labor costs and broader inflationary pressures in the economy.
The Commerce Department figures, as Bloomberg reported Tuesday, show that overall corporate profits were up 37% from the previous year while employee compensation was up just 12%.
“Let’s be clear. The problem is not the worker who got a small raise and a $1,400 check seven months ago,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), chair of the Senate Budget Committee, tweeted in response to the data. “The problem is corporations making record-breaking profits while 700 billionaires became $2 trillion richer during the pandemic.”

Melanie Meade has become the face of clean air advocacy in her community, which sits in the shadow of one of the most heavily polluting industrial sites in western Pennsylvania.
For eight years she’s been at community meetings, rallies and press conferences, and featured in local news stories about her community’s childhood asthma epidemic and high cancer rates.
Her message to policymakers and U.S. Steel, which operates the industrial site, Clairton Coke Works, is simple: We deserve access to clean, healthy air.
Belgian court rules covid-pass is illegal and local government must pay daily fines | added December 3
A court in Belgium’s Wallonia region has ruled that use of a COVID pass is illegal and ordered the local government to pay a daily fine of €5,000 ($5,658) until they withdraw the measure, local media reported Wednesday.
Namur city’s Court of First Instance ruled Tuesday that use of the COVID Safe Ticket (CST) was illegal in the Wallonia region.
According to the judgment, rules requiring everyone to show their CST before entering cafés, restaurants, gyms and cultural venues were curbing individual freedoms in a disproportionate way which does not serve the goal they pursue.
Public universities face corrupted science with corporate funding, critics warn | added December 3
Iowa State University had its eye on building its own feed mill.
It would be a working operation, a chance to advance research on how to process corn grown across the state into animal feed. It would also double as a teaching center both for students on campus and for pros in the industry.

She’s just returned from a 14-day detention at Howard Springs, the 2000-capacity Covid camp outside Darwin to which regional Covid cases are transported by the authorities. In an exclusive interview with Freddie Sayers, she recounted her experiences.
EXPOSED: Dr. Fauci’s horror island of cruel animal experiments, funded by taxpayer dollars | added December 2
Documents obtained through Freedom of Information Act expose Dr Fauci’s secret island of monkeys procured for bizarre experiments involving injecting monkeys with various kinds of infectious diseases such as Lassa and the Ebola virus which led to hemorrhaging, pain, brain damage and loss of motor control and organ failure among multitudes of other things.
A group that set out to investigate taxpayer-funded animal experiments has unveiled a document exposing the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases’ (NIAID) “excruciating experiments” on rhesus monkeys.
The monkeys originating from Morgan Island off the coast of Beaufort in South Carolina are acquired and owned by NIAID.

Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul slammed Fauci for claiming once again that ‘I am science’. Paul noted that “when a government bureaucrat has the audacity, the arrogance, to say they represent all of science, we should be running the other way.”
Senior cardiologist warns the link to covid injections and increased heart attacks is bypassed | added December 2
A leading cardiologist in the UK has warned that a colleague of his is finding it impossible to get research published because it definitively links COVID vaccines to a massive increase in heart attacks.
Appearing on GB News, Dr. Aseem Malhotra related how he was contacted by a researcher from a prestigious British Institution who said that he had found concrete links between inflammation of coronary arteries and the experimental mRNA vaccines.
Dr. Malhotra added that his colleague told him the institution decided it would be better not to publish the results, fearing it would lose its research funding.
Biden bribes hospital with covid incentive payments disregarding standards of care | added December 2
Upon admission to a once-trusted hospital, American patients with COVID-19 become virtual prisoners, subjected to a rigid treatment protocol with roots in Ezekiel Emanuel’s “Complete Lives System” for rationing medical care in those over age 50. They have a shockingly high mortality rate. How and why is this happening, and what can be done about it?
As exposed in audio recordings, hospital executives in Arizona admitted meeting several times a week to lower standards of care, with coordinated restrictions on visitation rights. Most COVID-19 patients’ families are deliberately kept in the dark about what is really being done to their loved ones.
The combination that enables this tragic and avoidable loss of hundreds of thousands of lives includes (1) The CARES Act, which provides hospitals with bonus incentive payments for all things related to COVID-19 (testing, diagnosing, admitting to hospital, use of remdesivir and ventilators, reporting COVID-19 deaths, and vaccinations) and (2) waivers of customary and long-standing patient rights by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Freedom Caucus calls on McConnell to prohibit funding on injection mandates | added December 2
The conservative House Freedom Caucus called on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday to block any stopgap government funding bill that does not bar spending federal dollars on enforcing vaccine mandates.
The letter was sent as House Democrats attempt to craft a continuing resolution to keep the federal government fully functional through mid-January. Current funding expires at the end of Friday.
In a letter to McConnell (R-Ky.), Freedom Caucus members blasted what they described as President Biden’s “very damaging, unAmerican, and in the worst cases, unlawful vaccine mandates” and called on Senate Republicans to use “all procedural tools at your disposal to deny timely passage of the CR [continuing resolution] unless it prohibits funding — in all respects — for the vaccine mandates and enforcement thereof.”
World order in the works as global leaders agree to negotiate a ‘pandemic treaty’ | added December 2
Less than a week after the new omicron variant of the coronavirus was reported to the World Health Organization, global leaders on Wednesday agreed to start negotiations to create an international agreement to prevent and deal with future pandemics — which some have dubbed a “pandemic treaty.”
The special session of the World Health Assembly, only the second ever held by the WHO’s governing body, pledged by consensus to begin work on an agreement, amid a round of applause, after three days of talks.
“I welcome the decision you have adopted today, to establish an intergovernmental negotiating body to draft and negotiate a WHO convention, agreement or other international instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response,” WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.
1,500 homeless LA residents estimated to have died during the pandemic | added December 2
Nearly 1,500 unhoused people are estimated to have died on the streets of Los Angeles during the pandemic, according to a new report that raises alarms about authorities’ handling of a worsening humanitarian crisis.
Authored by researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and a coalition of unhoused residents, the report analyzed the LA county coroner’s records to identify 1,493 cases of people who died between March 2020 and July 2021 on the streets and were probably unhoused. The most common cause of death was accidental overdose.
The authors identified people believed to be unhoused based on the locations of their death, including freeway underpasses, parks, sidewalks, dumpsters, abandoned buildings, bus stops, tents, riverbeds, railroads and encampments.
Judge blocks Biden’s vaccine mandate for federal contractors in Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee | added December 2
The Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement for federal contractors received another blow from US District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove, who granted a request Tuesday to block the federal mandate in three additional states: Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee.
“Once again, the court is asked to wrestle with important constitutional values implicated in the midst of a pandemic that lingers,” Tatenhove wrote in his ruling, which was obtained by CNN. “But right now, the enforcement of the contract provisions in this case must be paused.”
By issuing the mandate, Tatenhove determined that Biden exceeded his authority under the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act, even for a “good cause” like slowing the spread of COVID-19.
Qualcomm’s new smartphone camera that watches every move and looks for your face | added December 2
“Your phone’s front camera is always securely looking for your face, even if you don’t touch it or raise to wake it.” That’s how Qualcomm Technologies vice president of product management Judd Heape introduced the company’s new always-on camera capabilities in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor set to arrive in top-shelf Android phones early next year.
Depending on who you are, that statement can either be exciting or terrifying. For Qualcomm, it thinks this new feature will enable new use cases, like being able to wake and unlock your phone without having to pick it up or have it instantly lock when it no longer sees your face.
But for those of us with any sense of how modern technology is used to violate our privacy, a camera on our phone that’s always recording images even when we’re not using it sounds like the stuff of nightmares and has a cost to our privacy that far outweighs any potential convenience benefits.
World’s first vaccine murder case against Bill Gates filed in India’s high court | added December 1
World’s First Vaccine Murder case against Bill Gates, Adar Poonawalla filed in India’s High Court.
Petitioner has sought prosecution of AstraZeneca’s (Covishield) manufacturer Bill Gates, his partner Adar Poonawalla and other Government officials and leaders involved in the murder of a 23 year old man, who lost his life because of vaccination. The deceased took the Covishield vaccine by believing in the false narrative that the vaccine is completely safe and also owing to the compliance requirement set by the Railways that only double vaccinated people would be allowed to travel.
The Government of India’s AEFI (Adverse Event Following Immunisation) Committee has recently admitted that the death of Dr.SnehalLunawat,was due to side effects of the Covishield vaccine. The said report has exposed the falsity of the claim made by vaccine syndicatethat vaccines are totally safe.
Recent data indicates epidemiological relevance of covid-19 vaccinated individuals is increasing | added December 1
High COVID-19 vaccination rates were expected to reduce transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in populations by reducing the number of possible sources for transmission and thereby to reduce the burden of COVID-19 disease. Recent data, however, indicate that the epidemiological relevance of COVID-19 vaccinated individuals is increasing.
In the UK it was described that secondary attack rates among household contacts exposed to fully vaccinated index cases was similar to household contacts exposed to unvaccinated index cases (25% for vaccinated vs 23% for unvaccinated). 12 of 31 infections in fully vaccinated household contacts (39%) arose from fully vaccinated epidemiologically linked index cases. Peak viral load did not differ by vaccination status or variant type [
In Germany, the rate of symptomatic COVID-19 cases among the fully vaccinated (“breakthrough infections”) is reported weekly since 21.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid advises more booster drug jabs every 2 months instead of 6 | December 1
There is no need to call off Christmas parties despite the emergence of the Omicron variant, the health secretary has said, as he urged people to get a booster jab to fight Covid.
Sajid Javid said people should consider measures such as taking Covid tests or wearing face masks when socialising. But NHS Providers said some NHS trusts had asked staff “not to mix in big groups” in the run-up to Christmas. It comes amid an expansion of the booster vaccination rollout.
Saffron Cordery, deputy chief executive of NHS Providers, told Sky News some trusts were setting an example by making that request to staff because of the “potential threat to their health and what they will be available to do”.
Troops who don’t get covid-19 injection are ‘risking their careers’ according to US Defense Secretary | added December 1
US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin denied a request from Oklahoma’s governor to exempt the state’s National Guard troops from the Pentagon’s vaccine mandate.
In a letter sent to Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt on Monday, Austin did not specify how the mandate would be enforced but said that failure to comply with the vaccine mandate may “jeopardize” troops’ status in the National Guard.
“In making our decision to require vaccination for Service members, we considered the thousands of hospitalizations and the hundreds of deaths, among Service members, civilians, and their families,” Austin wrote. “COVID-19 takes our Service members out of the fight, temporarily or permanently, and jeopardizes our ability to meet mission requirements.”
Supreme Court blocks request to allow religious exemption over injections at a Massachusetts hospital | added December 1
The Supreme Court on Monday blocked a request to let staff at a Massachusetts hospital sidestep a vaccine mandate for religious reasons.
Eight former and current employees at Mass General Brigham filed the request last week with Justice Stephen Breyer, who oversees the circuit where the request was filed, according to court documents reviewed by Insider. Breyer denied the request with a one-line summary.
The current and former hospital employees had claimed that the mandate, which ordered the hospital’s 80,000 employers to get vaccinated against COVID-19 by November 5, violated religious beliefs or placed them “in significant physical or mental danger,” court documents show.
LA begins to require proof of drug jabs for everyone entering a variety of businesses | added December 1
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Enforcement began Monday in Los Angeles for one of the strictest vaccine mandates in the country, a sweeping measure that requires proof of shots for everyone entering a wide variety of businesses from restaurants to theaters and gyms to nail and hair salons.
While the latest order aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus took effect Nov. 8, city officials spent the past three weeks providing business owners the information and resources business they need to comply.
“Nobody wants to penalize anyone,” said Sharon Tso, the city’s Chief Legislative Analyst, whose office drafted the enforcement rules. “That’s why we’ve been prioritizing education.”
Biden pushes to rush approval for another drug targeting omicron | added December 1
President Joe Biden said Monday he is directing federal agencies to be prepared to move as quickly as possible to approve additional vaccines or boosters tailored to shield against the new omicron coronavirus variant.
The current Covid vaccines are believed to provide at least some protection from the heavily mutated omicron strain, and booster shots “strengthen that protection significantly,” Biden assured Americans in a speech at the White House.
“We do not yet believe that additional measures will be needed,” he said.
Federal district court judge rejects claim by DOD that Pfizer EUA and Comirnaty vaxes are ‘interchangeable’ | added December 1
A federal district court judge has rejected a claim by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine being administered under Emergency Use Authorization is interchangeable with Pfizer’s Comirnaty vaccine, which in August was fully licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In an order issued Nov. 12 in Doe et al. v. Austin, U.S. Federal District Judge Allen Winsor of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida denied a preliminary injunction requested by 16 service members against the U.S. Military’s COVID vaccine mandate. A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 14, 2022.
However, the judge’s acknowledgment that “the DOD cannot mandate vaccines that only have an EUA” is significant for two reasons.
Maine physician asks board to define covid ‘misinformation’ after being threatened with disciplinary action | added December 1
In a letter to the Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine, Dr. Meryl Nass, a practicing physician in Maine and member of Children’s Health Defense scientific advisory board, asked the board to define what it means by “misinformation” and “disinformation,” and to clarify what statutory authority the board has to discipline physicians.
November 22, 2021
To the Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine:
I am a physician, licensed in Maine for the past 24 years. I am concerned about the use of the terms “misinformation” and “disinformation” and the new threat to physicians’ licenses issued by the board today for undefined behaviors.
I require clarification regarding the board’s definition of misinformation and disinformation and would like to know what statutory authority the board has to discipline physicians on the basis of undefined transgressions.
Robots with frog cells can now self-reproduce, controlling it is another problem | added December 1
It might soon be easy to build living robots — because they’ll build themselves. New Scientist reports Harvard University, Tufts University and University of Vermont researchers have learned that their frog cell-based Xenobots can self-reproduce.
The custom organisms can collect “hundreds” of individual cells in their dishes to spontaneously assemble baby bots that grow up within a few days. As this happens over and over, you could use the reproduction to amass however robots you need to deliver drugs, remove microplastics from rivers or otherwise complete small-scale tasks.
The replication method is as notable as the bots themselves. The cells would normally develop into tadpole skin, but the computer-designed cell mix instead uses the “kinematic” (motion-based) replication normally seen only with molecules. No known animal or plant reproduces this way, according to study lead Sam Kriegman — the robots effectively broke the ‘rules’ of biology.
Greece to charge unvaxed under 60 a monthly fine for not getting injected | added December 1
On Tuesday, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced the country would make COVID-19 vaccinations for all citizens of Greece who are over 60 years of age mandatory. In addition, he said those who refuse to get vaccinated will have to pay a monthly fine of 100 euros (approximately $114).
“The new Omicron variant is a concern for us and means we must be vigilant,” he added.
Mitsotakis made the announcement during a televised cabinet meeting in Athens on Tuesday. The effort comes as Europe is scrambling to address the threat of the new Omicron variant ahead of the busy holiday season.
