UNPRECEDENTED: Utah scientist speaks before expert panel on inaccurate clinical trials data and vax injuries | added November 30
[Oct. 27, 2021] SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — COVID-19 vaccines for children ages 5-11 in the U.S. are one step closer to approval after a unanimous vote from a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel, with one abstention.
My wife was severely neurologically injured by a single COVID vaccine in a clinical trial here in the United States last November. Because study protocol requires two doses, she was dropped from the trial, her access the study app deleted. Her reaction is not described in the recently released clinical trial report. 266 participants are described as having an AE leading to discontinuation, 56 neurological reactions are tallied.
The group voting Tuesday said the vaccine’s benefits in preventing COVID-19 in that age group outweigh potential risks. During the eight-hour hearing, doctors, scientists and concerned citizens were given a chance to testify.
Dr. Brian Dressen, Ph.D., is a Utah father, husband and chemist who testified before the panel.
EXCLUSIVE: 49-year-old forced to get fully vaccinated in order to receive transplant dies after second Moderna injection | added November 30
A 49-year-old Texas man who recovered from COVID — but was required to be fully vaccinated against the virus before being approved for a life-saving lung transplant — died when he developed a pulmonary embolism and heart issues after his second Moderna vaccine.
In an exclusive Interview with The Defender, the man’s wife, Amy Bolin, said there was no reason her husband, Bobby Bolin, should have been forced to get the vaccine.
“In the medical field, your goal is supposed to be to improve and save people’s lives, and instead you’re giving them one option — you either do this or you can’t get a life-saving transplant,” Amy said.

NY Gov. Hochul bribes preteens to get injected for a chance to win a state college scholarship | added November 30
ALBANY. N.Y. (AP) — Ten preteens from around New York have won the first round of state college scholarships for 5-to-11-year-olds who get vaccinated against COVID-19, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced Saturday.
The youths’ names were drawn by lottery after their parents or guardians entered them in the “Vaccinate, Educate, Graduate” contest. It’s open to children 5 to 11 who get their first vaccine dose by Dec. 19. Weekly drawings will continue through Dec. 20.
Winners get tuition, room and board for an associate’s or bachelor’s degree program at a New York State or New York City public university, plus money for books and supplies.
Austrians who refuse drug injection could face prison time, health officials warn | added November 30
In the country with the “strictest vaccine mandates in the world,” Austrians who refuse the COVID vaccine could face serious penalties — including prison.
“Austria marks the first time a government has issued a mandate for all its citizens,” said journalist and political commentator Kim Iversen, on the latest episode of The Hill’s “Rising.”
Iversen told viewers the Austrian government “gave people the illusion of choice,” but because people didn’t get vaccinated voluntarily, “now they’re going to be forced into it.”
NYC officials strongly advise everyone ‘mask up’ again regardless of injection status | added November 30
New York City on Monday issued an advisory strongly recommending that everyone wear masks indoors in public places at all times regardless of vaccination status, amid concern about the new, highly mutated strain of the coronavirus named omicron.
“I’m also issuing a commissioners advisory strongly recommending that all New Yorkers wear a mask at all times when indoors and in a public setting. Like at your grocery or in building lobbies, offices and retail stores,” Dr. Dave Chokshi, commissioner of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, told reporters during an update on the coronavirus situation.
Outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio and Chokshi said New York City has not identified any cases of omicron so far. They both emphasized that vaccination remains the most crucial tool available to fight Covid-19.
San Diego court temporarily blocks Unified’s student COVID-19 vaccine mandate for violating freedom rights| added November 30
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Sunday temporarily blocked San Diego Unified’s student COVID-19 vaccine mandate from going into effect — one day before the school district’s deadline for students to get their first dose.
However San Diego Unified’s attorney said Monday he expects the mandate will be restored soon, because the district has already taken steps to address one of the court’s key concerns.
The court sided with a 16-year-old junior at Scripps Ranch High School who had sued last month saying San Diego Unified’s vaccine mandate violated her religious beliefs.
10 states block Biden’s injection mandate on thousands of health care workers | added November 30
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A federal judge on Monday blocked President Joe Biden’s administration from enforcing a coronavirus vaccine mandate on thousands of health care workers in 10 states that had brought the first legal challenge against the requirement.
The court order said that the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid had no clear authority from Congress to enact the vaccine mandate for providers participating in the two government health care programs for the elderly, disabled and poor.
The preliminary injunction by St. Louis-based U.S. District Judge Matthew Schelp applies to a coalition of suing states that includes Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. All those states have either a Republican attorney general or governor. Similar lawsuits also are pending in other states.
Pfizer CEO asserts the new anti-viral drug pill will be effective against omnicron variant | added November 30
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said Monday he expects the company’s Covid-19 treatment pill to be effective against the omicron variant of the virus causes Covid-19.
“The good news when it comes to our treatment, it was designed with that in mind, it was designed with the fact that most mutations are coming in the spikes,” Bourla told CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “So that gives me very high level of confidence that the treatment will not be affected, our oral treatment will not be affected by this virus.”
Pfizer submitted its application earlier this month to the Food and Drug Administration to authorize the pill, Paxlovid, for emergency use. In a clinical trial of people age 18 and over, Pfizer found the pill reduces hospitalization and death by 89% when taken with a widely used HIV drug within three days of the start of symptoms.
Biden before presidency on vax mandates: “No, I don’t think it should be mandatory. I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory.” | added November 29
Footage shows Biden saying he would not impose a mandate in response to a reporter’s question on 4 December, 2020. At the time Biden was President-elect.
“No — I don’t think it should be mandatory. I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory,” Biden said of the coronavirus vaccine.
15 covid-skeptic memes to get your through the day — Part 13 | added November 29
Part thirteen of Monday Morning MemesTM comes around. It might be unlucky for some, but who? With this most unfortunate of digits coinciding precisely with the Moronic variant (sorry, typo: Omicron), perhaps it bodes ill for all of us?
Or perhaps it bodes illest for our New Normal would-be overlords? I think we all have a sneaky suspicion that ‘Moronic’ is pushing things firmly into ‘silly’ territory now, and something’s gotta give.
Perhaps we’re closer than we think to the spell being broken, to the threadbare narrative finally snapping and falling lifeless to the floor?
Israel to shut borders on all foreigners and use phone tracking tech to catch ‘new variant’ | added November 29
Israel on Saturday unveiled new plans to ban all foreigners into the country, a world-first in efforts to curb the spread of the newly detected COVID-19 variant called Omicron.
The nation has also revealed plans to use counter-terrorism phone-tracking technology to surveil the new variant’s spread.
The travel ban to all foreigners would last 14 days, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said in a statement. The new measures, which still require government approval, come after Israel announced a smaller-scale travel ban on Friday for foreigners coming from most African countries.
South Africa’s president condemns travel bans over the new variant | added November 29
South Africa’s president has condemned travel bans enacted against his country and its neighbours over the new coronavirus variant Omicron.
Cyril Ramaphosa said he was “deeply disappointed” by the action, which he described as unjustified, and called for the bans to be urgently lifted.
The UK, EU and US are among those who have imposed travel bans. Omicron has been classed as a “variant of concern”. Early evidence suggests it has a higher re-infection risk.
NY city teachers back in court over unconstitutional injection mandates and denial over exemptions | added November 29
Plaintiffs and the general public were not allowed in the courtroom for Monday’s hearing. However, more than 100 people held a “faith rally” in front of the Thurgood Marshall Courthouse in downtown Manhattan. The rally was live streamed on CHD TV.
The plaintiffs in both cases won an injunction on Nov. 13, which gave them the opportunity to reapply for a religious exemption. However, attorneys for the plaintiffs say this relief is not adequate.
Vaccinated Cowboy Mike McCarthy tests positive for covid-19 and is ruled out of match with Saints | added November 29
One day after declaring right tackle Terence Steele was moved to the Reserve/COVID-19 list, the Dallas Cowboys lost another headline name during their preparation to take on the New Orleans Saints in Week 13. Mike McCarthy has tested positive for COVID-19, sources confirm to CBS Sports, and will not travel with the Cowboys to New Orleans this week.
McCarthy is vaccinated, but it’s unclear if he has symptoms and he would have to both be without symptoms and produce two negative tests in a 24-hour period thereafter in order to return to the team.
Given the timeframe in which he’d had to achieve these this week — the Cowboys and Saints set to square off on Thursday night with the former traveling on Wednesday — it’s simply a hill McCarthy won’t be able to climb in time.
‘Covid Papers’ to fill up your gas tank? | added November 29
Slovenia’s regulation forbidding people without ‘COVID certificates’ from pumping fuel shows governments are getting increasingly creative in their coercion.
It’s hard to know what’s real and what’s fake on the internet these days. So when I stumbled on a Twitter post that claimed automobile drivers in Slovenia were forbidden from pumping gas without a COVID certificate, I was skeptical.
All the tweets I found were screenshots of a single story published by TV N1 Zagreb, a news partner of CNN. Attempts to find information of this alleged regulation on the Slovenian government’s website didn’t go well (I don’t read Slovenian!), but I was able to find another story published by a separate Slovenian news organization.
“The Omicron Variant” — Magic pills, or solving the Africa problem? | added November 28
Yesterday the WHO labelled the sars-cov-2 variant B.1.1.529 as a “variant of concern” and officially named it “Omicron”.
This was as entirely predictable as it is completely meaningless. The “variants” are just tools to stretch the story out and keep people on their toes.
If you want to know exactly how the Omicron variant is going to affect the narrative, well The Guardian has done a handy “here’s all the bullshit we’re gonna sell you over the next couple of weeks” guide…

Gov. Hochul warns the covid-19 variant omicron ‘is coming’ | added November 28
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Gov. Kathy Hochul declared a “State of Emergency” Friday for the state of New York due to concerns over the newly-identified omicron variant of coronavirus.
The World Health Organization (WHO) named coronavirus (COVID-19) variant B.1.1.529 “omicron” on Friday, Nov. 26, calling it a variant of concern.
The declaration will go into effect on Dec. 3, and will be re-evaluated based on the latest COVID-19 data on Jan. 15. The emergency declaration will allow New York state to acquire more critical supplies to combat the pandemic, increase hospital capacity and address potential staffing shortages.
Scientists warn Bill Gates nuclear power project is a dangerous diversion from true energy | added November 27
Officials announced Tuesday that the small city of Kemmerer, Wyoming would be the site of a new Bill Gates-backed nuclear power project—an initiative whose proponents say would provide climate-friendly and affordable energy but which some scientists warn is a dangerous diversion from true energy solutions.
The experimental Natrium nuclear power plant will be at the site of the coal-fired Naughton Power Plant, slated for retirement in 2025, though siting issues are not yet finalized. The company behind the project is TerraPower. Gates, who helped found TerraPower, is chairman of the board.
“Mr. Gates,” nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen wrote in an open letter in August, Natrium “is following in the footsteps of a 70-year-long record of sodium-cooled nuclear technological failures. Your plan to recycle those failures and resurrect liquid sodium again will siphon valuable public funds and research from inexpensive and proven renewable energy alternatives.”
Missouri court rules covid mandates and restrictions imposed by public health bureaucrats are illegal | added November 27
The Circuit Court of Cole County, Missouri, Judge Daniel R. Green presiding, has issued a sweeping judgement against Covid restrictions and mandates imposed by the Department of Health and Senior Services, November 22, 2021. Cole County is located in the center of the state and its largest city is Jefferson City, the state capital.
The decision begins: “This case is about whether Missouri’s Department of Health and Senior Services regulations can abolish representative government in the creation of public health laws, and whether it can authorize closure of a school or assembly based on the unfettered opinion of an unelected official. This Court finds it cannot.”
The case is decided on grounds that the edicts clearly violated the traditional separation of powers between the legislature and the executive. The legislature cannot surrender its power to make law to an unelected bureaucrat, either by constitutional tradition in a Republican form of government or under the Missouri Constitution.

Veteran “General Hospital” actor Steve Burton has been fired for refusing vax mandates | added November 27
Veteran “General Hospital” actor Steve Burton said Tuesday that he has been fired from the iconic ABC soap opera for failing to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
Burton, who played Jason Morgan in more than 2,200 episodes for the past 30 years, was still listed on the “General Hospital” website Tuesday.
His termination had been rumored for weeks around Port Charles. “I wanted you to hear it from me personally,” Burton said in a video posted to his Instagram account. “Unfortunately, ‘General Hospital’ has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions, and both of those were denied. Which, you know, hurts. But this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anybody should lose their livelihood over this.”
Pennsylvania sees discrepancy in CDC reporting of ‘fully vaxed’ adults by 500,000 | added November 27
(Pittsburgh) — Corrected data lowers the number of fully vaccinated Pennsylvania adults by nearly half a million people.
On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that 73.7% of commonwealth residents who were 18 or older had passed this mark. On Wednesday, the day before the holiday weekend, that number was adjusted to 68.9% — a difference of more than 488,000 adults.
It’s unclear exactly how the error occurred. Pennsylvania’s health department sends its data to the CDC, but the state says it continues to refine its data and remove duplicate information, a process it started in July.

President Kennedy, 1961 Inaugural Address
Where China and Russia are currently leading a new paradigm of cooperation and development, it is too easily forgotten that America itself had once embodied this anti-colonial spirit under the foreign policy vision of John F. Kennedy.
Even though the young leader died in office before the full effect of his grand vision could take hold, it is worth revisiting his fight and stated intention for a post-colonial world governed by win-win cooperation.
Pioneer cardiologist warns Pfizer and Moderna drug jabs ‘dramatically increase heart attack risk’ | added November 26
The COVID-19 Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines “dramatically increase” a common measure of heart risk in people.
That’s according to a recently published “warning” in the journal Circulation by cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry, who is called a pioneer in infant heart transplant surgery.The analysis was presented at the recent meeting of the American Heart Association.
The “dramatic changes in most patients” mean they are at higher risk of a new acute coronary syndrome, such as a heart attack, according to Gundry.
Biden to require more injection mandates for non US residents and essential travelers | added November 26
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden will require essential, nonresident travelers crossing U.S. land borders, such as truck drivers, government and emergency response officials, to be fully vaccinated beginning on Jan. 22, the administration planned to announce.
A senior administration official said the requirement, which the White House previewed in October, brings the rules for essential travelers in line with those that took effect earlier this month for leisure travelers, when the U.S. reopened its borders to fully vaccinated individuals.
Essential travelers entering by ferry will also be required to be fully vaccinated by the same date, the official said. The official spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity to preview the announcement.
Hundreds of Google employees sign manifesto that opposes injection mandates as a matter of principle | added November 26
Several hundred Google employees have signed and circulated a manifesto opposing the company’s Covid vaccine mandate, posing the latest challenge for leadership as it approaches key deadlines for returning workers to offices in person.
The Biden administration has ordered U.S. companies with 100 or more workers to ensure their employees are fully vaccinated or regularly tested for Covid-19 by Jan. 4. In response, Google asked its more than 150,000 employees to upload their vaccination status to its internal systems by Dec. 3, whether they plan to come into the office or not, according to internal documents viewed by CNBC.
The company has also said that all employees who work directly or indirectly with government contracts must be vaccinated — even if they are working from home.

‘Fully vaxed’ Bryan Adams announces second positive covid diagnosis in a month | added November 26
Bryan Adams, the fully vaccinated Canadian rocker, took to social media Thursday to announce that he has been diagnosed with COVID-19 for the second time in a month while visiting Italy to promote a new calendar.
“Here I am, just arrived in Milano, and I’ve tested positive for the second time in a month for Covid,” he posted on his Instagram account. “So it’s off to the hospital for me.”
Adams, who is also a photographer, has shot the 2022 Pirelli calendar. Adams was expected to appear at in-person press events promoting the calendar Sunday and Monday. The singer was headed to a nearby hospital for a more reliable PCR test, the Associated Press reported. The 60-year-old singer was seen seated normally in the back of the ambulance.
Freedom of speech censorship coordinated on a global scale is a real thing | added November 26
If you suspected censorship was being coordinated on a global scale, you’d be right.
The International Grand Committee on Disinformation (IGCD) consists of “an international array of legislators, policy advisers, and other experts” who work together “to forge international alliances that bring shared, effective strategies into the battle against online disinformation.” What could possibly go wrong?
The idea behind the IGCD came from four members of the British and Canadian Parliaments: Damian Collins and Ian Lucas from the U.K., and Bob Zimmer and Nathaniel Erskine-Smith from Canada. The first session of the IGCD took place at the end of November 2018, so they’ve been quietly working in the background for some time already.
National Guard officials refuse unlawful military vaccination mandates | added November 26
The refusal of the commander of the Oklahoma National guard to enforce the Pentagon’s Covid-19 vaccination mandate has opened up a dispute about the limits of the federal government’s authority and the chain of command of the military.
Brig. Gen. Thomas Mancino has refused to enforce the mandate since he took command of the unit last week, arguing that he answers to Oklahoma’s Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt who opposes it.
But Pentagon officials have rejected that claim, saying that all members of the National Guard, even when not called up under federal authority, are subject to military readiness requirements, including medical requirements like vaccines
WATCH: Going off Grid | added November 26
In the near future being “off grid” may be vital if, for example, being “unvaccinated” makes it more difficult to access the banking system, or if the Green New Deal starts rationing energy access to “save the planet”.
Even if none of that comes about, it never hurts to be prepared or maintain independence from the increasingly insane mainstream.
With that in mind, Bob Anderson joins James Corbett for the most recent episode of #SolutionsWatch to talk about the importance of, and how to go about achieving, “energy independence”.
Germany considers tougher covid restrictions and a full lockdown | added November 24
Germany is set to decide on tougher Covid-19 restrictions and could even opt for a full lockdown amid record daily infections and mounting pressure on hospitals.
Olaf Scholz, Germany’s chancellor-designate, said Wednesday that the Covid situation was serious and that the country would massively push its vaccination campaign, noting that “vaccination is the way out of this pandemic.”
Scholz said Germany “should make vaccination compulsory for certain groups,” without stating which groups, while new Finance Minister Christian Lindner stated that Germans should avoid all unnecessary contact this winter “to preserve all of our health in this pandemic.”
Federal health officials urge Americans to get another drug shot to boost immunity | added November 24
Federal health officials are urging Americans to shore up their immunity ahead of the winter holidays by getting a COVID-19 booster shot. But not everyone is working with the same defenses when it comes to keeping the virus at bay.
More than 47 million people in the U.S have already caught the coronavirus, at least according to officially recorded numbers. In reality, it’s probably many millions more.
Some undetermined share of those people are also vaccinated, meaning they now possess what scientists call hybrid immunity. This is what happens when your immune system has essentially done both a dress rehearsal of fending off the virus — courtesy of the vaccine — and a real life performance — thanks to the virus.
Big AG called out for carcinogenic chemicals that pollute protected plants and animals | added November 24
As Big Ag fumed over a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determination that herbicides including the endocrine-disrupting atrazine and carcinogenic glyphosate are likely to harm more than 1,600 protected plant and animal species, environmentalists pointed to the agency’s findings as proof of the need for stricter limits on the use of the dangerous poisons.
After decades of refusing to comply with its obligations under the Endangered Species Act, the EPA on Nov.12 released its final biological evaluations for atrazine, glyphosate and simazine in order to comply with a 2016 legal agreement with the advocacy groups Center for Biological Diversity and Pesticide Action Network.
The EPA evaluations concluded that the chemicals are likely to adversely affect 1,676 animals and plants on the federal threatened or endangered species lists.

Colorado governor says he is not considering a mask mandate ahead of holiday season | added November 24
DENVER — Gov. Jared Polis said on Tuesday that he is not considering a statewide order related to the COVID-19 pandemic, as several counties in the Denver metro area are enacting mask mandates ahead of the holiday season.
The governor said that during a news conference in which he also encouraged Coloradans to get vaccinated and to celebrate Thanksgiving in a way that minimizes risk to people who aren’t vaccinated.
When asked about mask mandates, Polis said he supports cities and counties in whatever actions they take that are appropriate for their communities.
“We’ve taken a line here where we are supportive of our local communities in recognition that we have a very diverse state,” Polis said.
Investigation shows conflict of interest between Congress members and drug companies | added November 24

They Live Amongst Us: Anatomy of a Cult | added November 24
Despite a preponderance of the evidence proving COVID to be a non-event for most of us, over 1 million people have fallen foul to vaccine injury. This should be enough to stop most people in their tracks. It hasn’t.
Many emerge from near death experience even more pontifical than before, denouncing the rest of us for not joining in this mortal game of Russian Roulette. Fuelling their self-righteous indignation of us, is other people’s self-righteous indignation of them. It is a perpetual loop of blame and shame.
There can be no avoiding these people. A sort of Provisional Mask Army. The ones acting in good conscience lost to the morally virtuous super spreaders of hyperbole.
Australian Army Transfers COVID-Positive People To Quarantine Camps | added November 23
The Australian army has begun forcibly removing residents in the Northern Territories to the Howard Springs quarantine camp located in Darwin, after nine new Covid-19 cases were identified in the community of Binjari. The move comes after hard lockdowns were instituted in the communities of both Binjari and nearby Rockhole on Saturday night.
“Residents of Binjari and Rockhole no longer have the five reasons to leave their homes,” said Northern Territory chief minister, Michael Gunner, referring to the country’s five allowable reasons to avoid lockdown (buying food and supplies, exercising for up to two hours, care or caregiving, work or education if it can’t be done from home, and to get vaccinated at the nearest possible location).
“They can only leave for medical treatment, in an emergency, or as required by law.”
“It’s highly likely that more residents will be transferred to Howard Springs today, either as positive cases or close contacts,” he continued, adding “We have already identified 38 close contacts from Binjari but that number will go up. Those 38 are being transferred now.”

Corporate corruption and the demolition of our freedom pillars | added November 23
The disposition of the Boeing manslaughtering of 346 trusting passengers and crew in the 737 MAX crashes (Indonesia, 2018 and Ethiopia, 2019) further weakens the system of tort law and individual pursuits of justice after wrongful deaths.
Federal District Court Judge in Chicago, Jorge L. Alonso, couldn’t even wait for the scheduled hearing by Boeing’s law firms and the cooperating plaintiffs’ lawyers.
He approved the stipulation a day earlier, without comment, that, among other surrenders, took away the right to argue punitive damages for Boeing’s admitted criminal conduct, stopped the discovery and depositions of the most culpable top executives and set the stage for mediation to reduce the number of trials for compensatory damage to a very few of the 156 wronged families.

Reminder: CDC study shows mask coverings are not effective in preventing the spread of covid-19 | added November 23
A study conducted in the United States in July found that when they compared 154 “case-patients,” who tested positive for COVID-19, to a control group of 160 participants from health care facilities who were symptomatic but tested negative, over 70 percent of the case-patients were contaminated with the virus and fell ill despite “always” wearing a mask.
“In the 14 days before illness onset, 71% of case-patients and 74% of control participants reported always using cloth face coverings or other mask types when in public,” the report stated.
The importance of breathing fresh oxygen for optimal health and battling diseases | added November 23
In this review, we explore the mechanisms responsible for maintaining oxygen homeostasis and the consequences of their dysfunction.

“The risk to a child from COVID is less than the risk from flu … that’s a fact,” said Dore. “So no matter what you hear from NBC News, or CNBC, or MSNBC, or CNN or Fox News or ABC News or The New York Times or the Washington Post, your child is not at risk from COVID, don’t let them scare you.”
Dore attributed mainstream media’s pro-vaccine stance to the fact that Big Pharma advertises heavily on the programs, and funds media sponsorships.
CHD files new lawsuit to prevent D.C. law allowing 11 year olds to get vaxed without parents’ consent | added November 22
Children’s Health Defense (CDH) and Parental Rights Foundation on Monday refiled a lawsuit on behalf of four parents challenging the D.C. Minor Consent Act as unconstitutional.
The D.C. Minor Consent Act allows children 11 or older to “consent” to vaccinations, including the Pfizer Bio-NTech COVID-19 vaccine, without their parents’ knowledge or consent.
The law contains multiple provisions designed to deceive parents and conceal the fact that children have been vaccinated, including against the parents’ written religious exemption.
FDA sued for failing to release data about ‘Warp Speed’ licensing of Pfizer Comirnaty Vax | added November 22
Fifty-five years. That’s how long the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimates it will need to fully release all documents connected to the approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
In a court filing submitted Nov. 5 to a federal judge, the FDA stated it can process the 329,000 pages of documents at a rate of only 500 pages per month because it needs the time to redact exempt material. At that rate, the documentation will not be fully released until 2076.
The data in question refers to the FDA’s decision to license the Pfizer-BioNTech Comirnaty COVID-19 vaccine.
Unvaxed Delta airline employees to pay an extra $200 a month for health insurance | added November 22
As Covid cases surged over the summer, Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian took action: Unvaccinated workers would have to pay an extra $200 a month for their health insurance, starting Nov. 1.
It felt less onerous than the vaccine mandate imposed on workers by rival United Airlines. But still, it was audacious.
Around 75% of Delta’s workforce had already received the Covid shots by that time. But each employee who was hospitalized with Covid had cost Delta $50,000, and Bastian noted in an August memo that none of those hospitalized in the summer surge had been fully vaccinated.
Letter to a Tyrant | added November 22
I won’t bother to reason with you or appeal to your compassion—because you have none. You are a foul, fetid, festering, fiendish, fear-fomenting fecker devoid of soul, purpose, and meaning.
No matter how many lives you masticate, hearts you shred, minds you menticide, and puppet strings you try to throttle us with, you will forever remain a hollow husk of a simulated human.
I know you envy us our feelings. You seethe with rage, jealousy, loathing, terror, disgust, and every other malevolent emotion, but you are incapable of comprehending love, joy, friendship, warmth, and abiding peace.
Oregonians wondering when they can drop their masks since reaching ‘herd immunity’ | added November 22
With COVID cases declining and the vaccine rate reaching 73%, many Oregonians are wondering when they can drop their face masks. Health experts say: not until early next year, if not longer. The COVID-19 booster is now available to all adults in Oregon.
The Oregon Health Authority made the announcement Saturday, a day after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced similar federal guidelines.
The news comes after a weeks-long decline in COVID cases across the state. Case numbers are about half what they were at the peak of the Delta surge in September, and COVID-related hospitalizations are down to about 400 patients. By contrast, there were 1,178 COVID patients in Oregon on Sept. 1.
Disney halts vax mandates for employees after Florida ban | added November 21
Disney has put on pause a coronavirus vaccine mandate for employees of its Florida theme park after the State Legislature and the governor made it illegal for employers to require all workers get the shots, a company spokesperson confirmed Saturday.
Walt Disney World could have been facing fines under the policy now on hold, illustrating how even one of the most iconic tourism brands in the state has to deal with the headwinds of political debate over the pandemic response.
The Republican-controlled Florida Legislature delivered the bill blocking Covid-19 mandates on Wednesday and Gov. Ron DeSantis signed it into law on Thursday, casting the measures as an effort to protect workers who could lose their jobs for lack of compliance.
Doctors say Covid-19 injection for children is a beneficial mental health boost | November 21
Diana Grimaldos keeps getting the same questions from her kids.
“Is the virus gone? Has the virus gone away?”
Her seven-year-old daughter, Katalina, has always been an anxious child — but it got much worse during the pandemic. Katalina’s anxiety was especially high during lockdown. Although seeing her parents get their COVID-19 vaccines helped, along with going back to school in person, “she’s still very fearful,” said her mother.
The meteoric rise in mental health issues among children throughout the pandemic is all too familiar for many parents — backed up by study after study and reflected in the practices of health-care providers across Canada.
Facebook demands LAPD stop using dummy accounts for collecting data and spying | added November 21
Facebook is demanding that the Los Angeles police department cease all use of “dummy” accounts on its platforms and stop collecting data on users for surveillance.
The letter, addressed to the LAPD chief, Michel Moore, on Thursday, comes after the Guardian contacted Facebook about two stories that revealed the department partnered in 2019 with Voyager Labs, a tech company that claims it can predict “emerging threats” and solve crime by analyzing social media information such as a person’s friends, posts and usernames.
Documents obtained by the Brennan Center and reviewed by the Guardian show that in addition to enabling law enforcement clients to collect and analyze user data from companies like Facebook, Voyager software also enables its law enforcement clients to use fake accounts to access otherwise inaccessible and private user information.
Reports of Covid-19 vax injuries near 1 million, CDC and FDA still approve booster drug shots for all adults | added November 20
VAERS data released today by the CDC included a total of 894,145 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID vaccines, including 18,853 deaths and 139,126 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020, and Nov. 12, 2021.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new data today showing a total of 894,145 adverse events following COVID vaccines were reported between Dec. 14, 2020, and Nov. 12, 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 18,853 reports of deaths — an increase of 392 over the previous week — and 139,126 reports of serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 3,726 compared with the previous week.
Most ‘highly vaxed’ place on earth cancels Christmas due to soaring Covid-19 cases | added November 20
Amid a surge in Covid-19 cases, Gibraltar has canceled official Christmas events and “strongly” discouraged people from hosting private gatherings for four weeks. Gibraltar’s entire eligible population is vaccinated.
The government of Gibraltar recently announced that “official Christmas parties, official receptions and similar gatherings” have been canceled, and advised the public to avoid social events and parties for the next four weeks. Outdoor spaces are recommended over indoor ones, touching and hugging is discouraged, and mask wearing is advised.
“The drastic increase in the numbers of people testing positive for Covid-19 in recent days is a stark reminder that the virus is still very prevalent in our community and that it is the responsibility of us all to take every reasonable precaution to protect ourselves and our loved ones,” Health Minister Samantha Sacramento said.
Israel holds nationwide drill to prepare for future coronavirus variants | added November 20
“The State of Israel is in an excellent situation, we defeated the fourth wave and we are on the verge of exiting the Delta variant,” Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said in a statement. “But, at the same time, we are always looking to the future and preparing for the continuation of the campaign.”
Bennett said that the government and health officials “are not packing up our equipment and not shutting down our management bodies and our virus-fighting forces. Rather the opposite — we’re continuing to be prepared and to challenge ourselves.”
Bank of America segregates unvaxed and vaxed employees based on Covid-19 ‘testing program’ | added November 20
A source who works with Bank of America has disclosed a pilot program beginning Nov. 18 that plans to separate vaccinated from unvaccinated employees at an administration building in Jacksonville, Florida.
The source, who asked to remain anonymous, told The Epoch Times that the program was initiated as a way to bring employees back to the office after a period of working remotely during the pandemic. But the plan casts a dark shadow on our potential future society, the source said.
“It’s segregation,” they said. “I’m blown away.”
Why are so many vaxed people testing positive and being hospitalized for Covid-19? Fauci pushes more injections | added November 20
More fully vaccinated people are being hospitalized with COVID-19 as vaccine immunity has waned, Dr. Anthony Fauci warned in an interview Tuesday.
Fauci, the White House medical adviser on the coronavirus, said there’s been a rise in hospitalizations among fully vaccinated people as of late, as those people have not gotten their booster shots, according to NBC News.
“What we’re starting to see now is an uptick in hospitalizations among people who’ve been vaccinated but not boosted,” Fauci said, per NBC News. “It’s a significant proportion, but not the majority by any means.”
U.S. pays drug giant Pfizer 5.3 billion for their anti-viral pill | added November 19
(Reuters) – Pfizer Inc said on Thursday the U.S. government would pay $5.29 billion for 10 million courses of its experimental COVID-19 antiviral drug, as the country rushes to secure promising oral treatments for the disease.
The deal is for around twice as many treatment courses as Merck & Co Inc has agreed to supply the United States under its contract. The price for the Pfizer pill is nearly 25%lower at roughly $530 per course, compared with about $700 for Merck’s.
Pfizer applied for emergency authorization of the drug, branded as Paxlovid, this week after reporting data showing that it was 89% effective at preventing hospitalization or death in at-risk people. The trial’s results suggest that Paxlovid surpasses Merck’s molnupiravir which was shown last month to halve the risk of dying or being hospitalized for COVID-19 patients at high risk of serious illness.
Bezos demands 10 billion taxpayer dollars to fund his vanity space project | added November 19
“Rather than waste $10 billion on a redundant space contract for Bezos, that money could be used to fund Social Security Disability, Medicare and Medicaid and the food stamps many of his own employees at Amazon and elsewhere have to rely on to make ends meet.”
Progressives on Wednesday slammed what they called a proposed $10 billion handout to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos — the world’s first multi-centibillionaire — in the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) as a “giveaway of galactic proportions” in the face of growing wealth inequality and the inability of U.S. lawmakers to pass a sweeping social and climate spending package.
According to Defense News, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D- N.Y.) plans to merge the $250 billion U.S. Innovation and Competition Act of 2021 — aimed largely at countering the rise of China — with next year’s NDAA, which would authorize up to $778 billion in military spending.
Nearly one third of U.S. healthcare workers in hospitals refuse the Covid-19 injection shot | added November 19
Nearly one third of healthcare workers in U.S. hospitals are still not vaccinated against Covid-19, according to research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as tensions escalate over a looming—and contested—nationwide mandate that officials worry will leave the sector with a shortage of critical workers.
As of September 15, 70% of healthcare workers were fully vaccinated against Covid-19, according to the CDC study of more than 3 million personnel across more than 2,000 U.S. hospitals published in the American Journal of Infection Control.
Rates varied based on the type of hospital, the researchers found, with the highest vaccination rates found in children’s hospitals where 77% of workers have both doses.
Not surprisingly: FDA clears the way for Moderna and Pfizer booster shots for all U.S. adults | added November 19
“This emergency use authorization comes at a critical time as we enter the winter months and face increasing COVID-19 case counts and hospitalizations across the country,” Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said in a statement. “We thank the FDA for their review, and are confident in the robust clinical evidence that a 50 µg booster dose of mRNA-1273 induces a strong immune response against COVID-19.”
Pfizer, which partnered with BioNTech on the vaccine, said its booster dose is to be administered at least six months after completion of the primary series and is the same dosage strength as the doses in the primary series.
“With boosters, more adults will now have the opportunity to help preserve a high-level of protection against this disease,” Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said in a statement. “We are grateful to the FDA for their rigorous review, and the action taken today that we hope will help accelerate our path out of this pandemic.”
CDC forced to admit their dismissal of conducting natural immunity studies for Covid-19 | added November 19
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, said it has no record of an individual previously infected with COVID becoming reinfected and transmitting the virus to others.
The FOIA request, submitted Sept. 2 by attorney Aaron Siri of the Siri & Glimstad law firm on behalf of the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), sought the following information:
“Documents reflecting any documented case of an individual who: (1) never received a COVID vaccine; (2) was infected with COVID once, recovered, and then later became infected again; and (3) transmitted SARS-CoV-2 to another person when reinfected.”
Unjust lockdowns continue in Austria as proposed coronavirus ‘crisis’ deepens | added November 19
(CNN) Austria is going back into a national lockdown and plans to become the first country in Europe to make Covid-19 vaccinations mandatory for all eligible people as the nation’s coronavirus crisis deepens, Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg announced Friday.
Schallenberg said his government would look to impose the national vaccine requirement from February 1. Just under 66% of Austria’s total population is fully vaccinated against Covid-19, one of the lower rates in the European Union, where cases are surging.
The national lockdown — the first in Europe this fall — starts Monday and will last for 10 days minimum, and could be extended for a further 10 days, Schallenberg told reporters at a news conference in Vienna.
Sweden’s “vax passports” teach us an important lesson in accepting the Covid-19 narrative | added November 19
The Scandinavian country has been a touchstone for lockdown skeptics, but this U-turn shows us the danger of accepting any part of the narrative.
The Swedish Public Health Agency (PHA) has announced that, starting next month, gatherings of more than 100 people will require “Covid passes” showing vaccination status.
Unlike similar schemes in other countries, a negative test will not be accepted as a substitute – either you’re vaccinated, or you can’t enter the venue.
There’s no talk yet of including restaurants, bars or cafes in this…but it is still early.
OSHA, Biden administration retreat over federal vaccine mandate | added November 17
The Biden administration is in full retreat over its unlawful vaccine mandate. After wreaking havoc on the U.S. economy for months by mandating federal contractors and businesses with more than 100 employees force employees to get ‘vaccinated’ for Covid-19, the White House is conceding it needs to suspend the authoritarian policy.
It was a bad sign for the ‘mandate’ when it was finally issued by OSHA a month and a half after the White House announced it in September. OSHA subsequently issued an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) that the federal courts have ripped to pieces as being entirely ungrounded in the law.
“In the order, the Fifth Circuit accuses the current administration of shoe-horning the desire for a federal vaccine mandate into the best, but ill-fitting, vehicle the administration could find – an OSHA ETS,” the National Law Review notes. “The court points out that OSHA’s authority to establish emergency temporary standards is ‘an extraordinary power that is to be delicately exercised’ and criticizes the ETS vaccine rule as ‘a one-size-fits-all sledgehammer that makes hardly any attempt to account for differences in workplaces’.”
“The Fifth Circuit questions whether OSHA has adequately shown a ‘grave danger’ warranting the issuance of an ETS and states that it is ‘dubious’ as to whether the rule will pass ‘constitutional muster’,” the legal analysts note.
Didn’t we try this already? In Germany? UK school forces unmasked children with injection exemptions to wear yellow badges | added November 18
A school in the UK is forcing children who don’t wear face masks due to them having an exemption to wear yellow badges on school premises and in class.
An email form the school, which is not named, was posted on Twitter by journalist Allison Pearson.
The school cites an “increase” in the number of COVID cases, despite the fact that infection levels in the UK have been flat or even in decline over recent weeks, as a justification for re-introducing mandatory mask rules.
Bill Gates gave $319 million dollars to mainstream media outlets, according to recent documents | added November 18
Up until his recent messy divorce, Bill Gates enjoyed something of a free pass in corporate media. Generally presented as a kindly nerd who wants to save the world, the Microsoft co-founder was even unironically christened “Saint Bill” by The Guardian.
While other billionaires’ media empires are relatively well known, the extent to which Gates’s cash underwrites the modern media landscape is not. After sorting through over 30,000 individual grants, MintPress can reveal that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) has made over $300 million worth of donations to fund media projects.
Recipients of this cash include many of America’s most important news outlets, including CNN, NBC, NPR, PBS and The Atlantic.
How private wealth is controlling billions under the guise of public health with digital surveillance | added November 18
The death by starvation of Etwariya Devi, a 67-year-old widow from the rural Indian state of Jharkhand, might have passed without notice had it not been part of a more widespread trend.
Like 1.3 billion of her fellow Indians, Devi had been pushed to enroll in a biometric digital ID system called Aadhaar in order to access public services, including her monthly allotment of 25kg of rice. When her fingerprint failed to register with the shoddy system, Devi was denied her food ration.
Throughout the course of the following three months in 2017, she was repeatedly refused food until she succumbed to hunger, alone in her home.
Why I’m Not Vaxed with host of “The Truth with Lisa Boothe” | added November 18
Despite this completely rational and data-driven viewpoint, the Biden White House recently broke its previous promise and issued federal mandates that will be applied to about 100 million Americans—two-thirds of all workers. For companies with 100 workers or more, employees must be vaccinated for COVID-19 or subjected to weekly testing starting on January 4, 2022. Health care workers at facilities that receive federal funding are also required to get the vaccine. The Pentagon has issued a vaccine mandate for service members, as well.
US drug overdoses reach never before seen milestone of 100,000 in one year, health officials tie to Covid-19 pandemic | added November 18
NEW YORK (AP) — An estimated 100,000 Americans died of drug overdoses in one year, a never-before-seen milestone that health officials say is tied to the COVID-19 pandemic and a more dangerous drug supply.
Overdose deaths have been rising for more than two decades, accelerated in the past two years and, according to new data posted Wednesday, jumped nearly 30% in the latest year.
President Joe Biden called it “a tragic milestone” in a statement, as administration officials pressed Congress to devote billions of dollars more to address the problem.
Myth vs. reality in COVID Russia It’s time to part ways with the conscience-soothing fairytales | added November 18
Alternative media has created an alternative reality about Russia.
The Kremlin has embraced all the same soul-raping “public health measures” currently terrorizing the Western world—and people are either in denial or making excuses.
“There is no compulsory vaccination in Russia!”
All 85 federal subjects of the Russian Federation now have vaccine mandates, as well as rules requiring digital “health” certificates for entry to certain businesses, venues, and public institutions. Many regions are denying routine medical care to those without QR codes.
GOP opposition to vax mandates extend beyond Covid-19 | added November 18
WASHINGTON — Right-wing politicians’ resistance to vaccine mandates is extending far beyond Covid-19 immunizations, a startling new development that carries vast implications for the future of public health.
In Idaho, a lawmaker introduced a bill that would define vaccine mandates — of any kind — as a form of assault. In Florida, a prominent state senator has called for a review of all vaccine requirements, including those for immunizations that have enjoyed wide public acceptance for decades, like polio and the measles, mumps, and rubella shot. And in Montana, the Republican governor recently signed into law a new bill that forbids businesses, including hospitals, from enforcing any vaccination requirements as a condition of employment.
German parliament approves new unjust laws to curb the ‘pandemic’ | added November 18
In response to a surge in infections, the Bundestag has approved new legislation. Acting Chancellor Angela Merkel is set to meet state leaders to debate further action as the pandemic threatens to spiral out of control.
The Bundestag voted on a set of measures on Thursday proposed by the parties likely to make up the next federal government.
They voted not not to extend the “epidemic situation of national concern” after it expires on November 25. This was introduced in March 2020 as the legal basis for Germany’s federal government to be able to take nationwide action such as imposing travel restrictions. The parties set to form the next government have suggested a new set of regulations that still needs to be approved by the Bundesrat, the upper house of parliament.
Newsom extends his own state of emergency, maintaining broad executive powers | added November 17
California Gov. Gavin Newsom has extended his state’s COVID-19 state of emergency declaration through March 2022, which means he will have had emergency powers for (at least) a full two years.
With those emergency powers, Newsom is able to implement sweeping pandemic policy via executive order while side-stepping the Legislature. Perhaps more importantly, under California law, so long as a statewide health emergency declaration is in place, county health officers — who, unlike the governor, were never elected to their positions — are also given broad powers to implement various controls without approval from elected officials such as mayors or supervisors. In the Bay Area, the tension between elected officials and heath officers over restrictions has spilled into the public eye in recent months.
NY court rules fired teachers for refusing the injection can re-apply for religious exemption | added November 17
Thanks to a ruling by a New York court, 15 teachers denied religious exemptions to the city’s COVID vaccine mandates will be allowed to re-apply through a new process that doesn’t violate the U.S. Constitution.
New York’s 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals on Nov. 13 granted a partial injunction to the educators, who had been placed on unpaid leave by the New York City Department of Education when their religious exemptions to vaccination were denied.
The court did not order that the educators be reinstated to their jobs, only that they be allowed to re-apply. The injunctive relief is temporary pending an emergency hearing to be held Nov. 22 on the merits of two cases before a new Second Circuit panel of judges.
Exposed: Klaus Schwab’s school plans for an economic ‘Great Reset’ | added November 17
Economist Ernst Wolff believes that a hidden alliance of political and corporate leaders is exploiting the pandemic with the aim of crashing national economies and introducing a global digital currency.
How is it that more than 190 governments from all over the world ended up dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in almost exactly the same manner, with lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccination cards now being commonplace everywhere?
The answer may lie in the Young Global Leaders school, which was established and managed by Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum, and that many of today’s prominent political and business leaders passed through on their way to the top.
Victorians attract all walks of life and political affiliations to protest Andrew’s dictatorship | added November 17
Sky News host Peta Credlin says Victorians refused to allow an Andrews “dictatorship” to “trump democracy” at protests against proposed new pandemic laws over the weekend.
Ms Credlin said Saturday afternoon’s protests against the Andrews government’s proposed pandemic bill attracted people from “all walks of life” and “political affiliations”.
“Ordinary Victorians, many of who have never protested before, but who said over and over again, that these laws were a tipping point for them, and they couldn’t stay silent any longer,” she said.
YouTube suspends Sen. Ron Johnson’s panel discussion with expert scientists and doctors over vaccine injuries | added November 17
For the fifth time this year, YouTube suspended Sen. Ron Johnson’s (R-Wis.) YouTube channel — this time for “spreading misinformation” in a video of a Nov. 2 roundtable discussion featuring scientists, doctors and people injured by COVID vaccines. Or as Johnson said in a tweet: “For the 5th time this year, @YouTube is censoring me from telling you the truth.”
A YouTube spokesperson told The Hill, the platform suspended Johnson’s account for one week, beginning Nov. 13, and removed part of the 4-hour video of the panel discussion, but allowed a shorter version to stay up. The spokesperson said:
“We craft our policies to reduce the risk of real-world harm, updating them as official guidance evolves, and we consider the context of a video to make exceptions that balance open discussion of people’s experiences with preventing the spread of harmful misinformation.”
Pfizer misreports the number of deaths in key Covid-19 vaccine trial | added November 17
On July 28, Pfizer and its partner BioNTech posted a six-month data update from their key Covid vaccine clinical trial, the one that led regulators worldwide to okay the shot.
At a time when questions about vaccine effectiveness were rising, the report received worldwide attention. Pfizer said the vaccine’s efficacy remained relatively strong, at 84 percent after six months.
It also reported 15 of the roughly 22,000 people who received the vaccine in the trial had died, compared to 14 of the 22,000 people who received placebo (a saline shot that didn’t contain the vaccine).
Ping-Pong Ball ‘lottery of lawsuits’ dims the fate of Biden’s injection mandate for large employers | added November 17
A peculiar ping-pong ball lottery—think: the NBA draft, only required by federal law—on Tuesday dimmed the fate of the Biden Administration’s new mandate governing COVID-19 vaccine requirements for large employers.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued the emergency rule on Nov. 4 and it was almost immediately challenged. More than two dozen Republican-led states, as well as companies, business groups, unions, and religious organizations filed nearly three dozen lawsuits challenging the mandate. While the majority of the lawsuits argued that the government had overstepped its authority, some made the case that the rule didn’t go far enough to protect workers.
In a bad sign for Biden’s mandate, the lottery consolidated all these cases under the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, where a majority of the justices have been appointed by Republican presidents. While justices do not necessarily rule along party lines, the judiciary has become increasingly partisan in recent years. Former President Donald Trump appointed a record number of appellate judges during his time in office, with his picks now making up 30% of active appeals court judges.
Pfizer giant pushes yet another grant emergency authorization for its new COVID-19 drug pill | added November 17
Pfizer is asking federal regulators to authorize its experimental COVID-19 pill, which the drugmaker says can protect people from the most severe symptoms of the disease.
Pfizer on Tuesday said it is seeking Emergency Use Authorization for the antiviral pill, called Paxlovid, from the Food and Drug Administration. Earlier this month, the company said Paxlovid cut the risk of hospitalization and death by nearly 90% in people with mild to moderate coronavirus infections.
The pharmaceutical giant, which also produces a coronavirus vaccine, earlier on Tuesday announced that it has signed a deal with a U.N.-backed group to allow other manufacturers to make the COVID-19 pill, a move that could make the treatment available to more than half of the world’s population.
America’s Doctor — It’s not just that he’s boring: Celia Farber comments on Anthony Fauci | added November 16
It was understood, without overt commands, that the “gay cancer” that had everybody in such a panic could not be assessed as complex toxic illness with a complex cause. The entire US media understood what to say and not say, and not only because of the allegiance to the shadow government, but because the era of classical science had ended. It ended that day. It would henceforth be a crime against decency to, for example, address anything that could be making gay men sick other than “the virus.”
This extended quotation is by Celia Farber, contributed to a new book about Anthony Fauci by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. that comes out Tuesday. It was published in full. Celia has covered AIDS since the beginning, starting as an intern for SPIN. It was in part thanks to an article by Celia published in April 2020 that I was clued into issues with the PCR, first made famous by a “test” falsely claimed to measure viral load of HIV patients. She writes:
People understand the Hannah Arendt concept of the “banality of evil.” I need to make a very important point here about Anthony Fauci, “America’s doctor.”

South Orange county school leaves hundreds of shoes in opposition to vax mandates | added November 16
Hundreds of shoes were set out in front of the Capistrano Unified School District offices on Sunday, Nov. 14—an unusual sight for an unusual time.
Parents and families placed the shoes there to symbolize their opposition to a coming vaccine mandate for California students, in which they’ll be required to be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus to attend classes in person.
Parents of district students opposed to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s mandate have been particularly vocal, often showing up at Board of Trustees meetings to denounce the eventual requirement.

Biden blames drug costs and Covid for soaring Medicare prices | added November 16
President Joe Biden’s administration on Friday announced it is raising Medicare premiums, a move it blamed in part on the cost of drugs.
The Medicare Part B standard monthly premium will rise by nearly $22 to $170.10 next year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said.
“The increase in the Part B premium for 2022 is continued evidence that rising drug costs threaten the affordability and sustainability of the Medicare program,” Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, administrator of the agency, said in a statement.

Stop planning, directing, supervising, controlling, and performing their dirty work. Become part of the resistance instead of an enabler of democidal despots.
Whether you are a law enforcement officer, public health official, psychologist, scientist, medical professional, educator, employer, censor, propagandist, or any other agent of complicity in this war against the people, you are what makes dictatorships possible.
Doctors say booster shot injections are a distraction | added November 16
While COVID-19 booster shot eligibility is continuing to expand in the U.S., not all doctors believe that’s where the focus should be in the fight against the coronavirus.
“Honestly, I think that boosters right now are a bit of a distraction away from where we should be focused, which is getting first doses, especially since we know that even now, even with Delta surging, the primary doses of the vaccines are highly protective against serious infection, against hospitalization,” Dr. Anand Swaminathan, a New Jersey-based emergency medicine physician, said on Yahoo Finance Live.
In most states, booster shots are available for those over the age of 65, people with certain underlying medical conditions, and people working in occupations considered to be higher risk in accordance with CDC guidelines.
Fauci and Gates change minds on Covid-19 vax effectiveness and push for more booster shots | added November 16
In two recent interviews, pandemic thought leaders Dr. Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates drastically changed their opinions on COVID vaccine effectiveness — and used their newfound concerns to push booster shots for the general population.
Last week, in an interview with Jeremy Hunt at London’s Policy Exchange, Gates admitted what many, including the Lancet, have been saying for months — that the vaccines aren’t effective.
Gates, who previously referred to the effectiveness of mRNA vaccines as “magic,” told Hunt “we need a new way of doing the vaccines.”
NYC and NJ ease up access to booster shot injections and push for more people to get vaccinated, again | added November 16
NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — There are growing concerns about the resurgence of COVID with holidays around the corner and as colder weather creeps in.
On Monday, both the mayor of New York City and the governor of New Jersey urged adults over 18 who are already vaccinated to get a booster shot. That is a shift from the CDC guidance limiting boosters only to some Americans.
New York City is “seeing an uptick” in coronavirus cases as weather turns cold and more people stay indoors, Health Commissioner Dr. David Chokshi said Monday. He said waning immunity for people who received their vaccines more than six months ago could be to blame for the resurgence.

320+ Toxic substances found in US tap water linked to cancer and adverse birth reactions | added November 15
Editor’s Note: Water is life. There have been numerous studies on the importance of keeping the body hydrated with fresh, clean water in order to maintain homeostasis. Planet Waves published an article by Eric Coppolino which covered the secret toxins, Polychlorinated biphenyls, found at SUNY college in New Paltz. — mmd
Since 2019, more than 320 toxic substances have been detected in U.S. drinking water systems, according to a new analysis by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a nonprofit environmental advocacy organization.
Those harmful chemicals are linked to cancer, adverse birth and reproduction outcomes, impaired brain development, and a revolving door of other deleterious health impacts.
The findings, part of the 2021 update to EWG’s national Tap Water Database, underpin the call for more rigorous federal drinking water standards and the urgency to improve water infrastructure.
Twenty-Five Years in the Life of a College | added November 15
Twenty-five years is a long time in the life of a college campus.
Presidents, not just student government presidents, come and go. New campuses of the same school are built, and others are closed down. Departments and vast domains inside of institutions are reshaped and reformed. If you come back to your old school after that long, you might not recognize the place.
Staff turnover is nearly total after that length of time, so there is little in the way of institutional memory except folklore and what’s kept in the minds of a few old-timers — and the college’s official archives, which lay silent until someone opens that door looking for something.
Virginia pharmacy administers the wrong dose of Covid-19 vaccine to 112 kids, ordered to stop immediately | added November 15
A pharmacy in Loudoun County, Virginia, was ordered to stop administering COVID vaccines after giving 112 children between the ages of 5 and 11 a smaller amount of a vaccine formulated for people 12 and older, The Washington Post reported.
“The pharmacy who administered the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination to your child last week has been removed from both state and federal COVID-19 vaccination programs,” Loudoun County Department of Health Director David Goodfriend said in the letter to parents whose children were affected.
Ted Pharmacy administered the shots on Nov. 3 and 4.

Our successor to This Week in the Guardian, This Week in the New Normal is our weekly chart of the progress of autocracy, authoritarianism and economic restructuring around the world.
1. Austria and Germany travelling back in time
In Germany, despite never have any kind of “public health emergency” worthy of the name, Angela Merkel’s government has always been determined to parlay Covid19 into as much extra power as they can. Busily turning society on its head whilst implementing horrific propaganda exercises.
The Pentagon faces first mutiny over unlawful enforcement of Covid-19 injection | added November 15
The first state National Guard unit has made itself clear to the Department of Defense it has no intention of enforcing its Covid-19 vaccine mandate.
“The Oklahoma National Guard has rejected the Defense Department’s requirement for all service members to receive the coronavirus vaccine and will allow personnel to sidestep the policy with no repercussions, a potential blueprint for Republican governors who have challenged Biden administration mandates,” the Washington Post reported.“Brig. Gen. Thomas Mancino, appointed this week by Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) as adjutant of the state’s 10,000 National Guard soldiers and airmen, on Thursday notified those under his command that they are not required to receive the vaccine and won’t be punished if they decline it,” the report added.
“It’s an extraordinary refusal of Pentagon policy and follows Stitt’s written request to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin seeking suspension of the requirement for Guard personnel in the state,” the report noted.
Colorado hospital faces a surge of Covid-19 cases amid staff shortages | added November 15
As winter approaches, hospitals across the state of Colorado are facing a renewed COVID-19 crisis with an influx of patients flooding into health care facilities. Front-line workers continue to bear the brunt of the state’s latest wave, with staffing shortages only exacerbating existing issues.
“Our hospitals and ICUs are filling up with patients who are going on ventilators and many of them dying,” Dr. Diana Breyer, a critical care physician at UCHealth, told ABC News.
There are now more than 1,500 patients receiving care for COVID-19 across Colorado, marking the highest number of patients in nearly a year, according to federal data.
White House blames Covid-19 pandemic for rising inflation prices | added November 15
Facing mixed economic signals and growing public criticism, top White House economic officials tied rising inflation to the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, emphasizing that the economy will stabilize if normalcy returns.
“There’s no doubt inflation is high right now. It’s affecting Americans’ pocketbooks. It’s affecting their outlook,” Brian Deese, national economic adviser, said Sunday in an interview on NBC News.
“We have to finish the job on COVID. We have to return to a sense of economic normalcy by getting more workplaces COVID-free, getting more kids vaccinated, so more parents feel comfortable going to work.”
How much freedom is left when drug companies require an injection in order to be a first class citizen? | added November 15
With more Americans getting COVID-19 boosters these days than first shots and many more potentially becoming eligible as the FDA is currently considering Pfizer’s request to approve its booster for the general population, the number of people enjoying boosted vaccine status is skyrocketing.
But what does that new status buy you, exactly? We spoke to Charlotte Baker, assistant professor of epidemiology at Virginia Tech, and Abraar Karan, an infectious disease doctor at Stanford University, to find out.
What a booster means, they say, is that you’ve got your best layer of protection — your vaccine — back in prime condition. Recent research has shown that vaccines wane after time (for example, a recent study found Pfizer dropped from 90% effective at preventing symptomatic infection initially to 70% after five months), but that boosters work well at increasing your antibody protection. (Note that you still must wait until after that 2-week point waiting period — just like the first time around, our experts stress, your new jab won’t reach peak effectiveness until about two weeks later.)
5th Circuit Federal Court Halts Biden’s Vaccine Mandate. Next Stop is SCOTUS. | Added November 13
NEW ORLEANS (Nov. 12, 2021) — The federal government has been ordered to halt all implementation and enforcement of its COVID vaccine and testing mandate following the request by petitioner and Louisiana business owner Brandon Trosclair and a group of employees from Texas who sued over the mandate last week.
The ruling from the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans represents a complete victory in this stage of the fight against the mandate. The court has ordered the Biden Administration to halt all enforcement of the mandate while legal challenges work their way through the federal court system. The ruling issued today by the Fifth Circuit was in direct response to the request for extended stay filed by the national law firm the Liberty Justice Center and the Louisiana-based Pelican Institute for Public Policy.
Austria to impose an immoral and unjust lockdown on millions of unvaccinated people | added November 12
Austria is expected to impose lockdown restrictions on millions of unvaccinated people in the coming days.
Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg told a press conference Friday that his government wanted to give the “green light” to such measures by Sunday, Austria Press Agency reported. Lawmakers will meet over the weekend to discuss the move, according to the news agency.
The chancellor rejected the notion of a nationwide lockdown being applied to all of Austria’s citizens, telling reporters on Friday that the two-thirds of the population who had accepted the immunization would not be forced to show “solidarity” with the unvaccinated. However, he did caution that there may be some tightening of other restrictions.
VAERS analysis reveals vaccine reactions the FDA and CDC failed to mention | added November 12
The CDC and FDA have said the vaccines are “safe and effective.” They haven’t found any serious issues with the COVID vaccines. Zero. Zip. Nada. It was the DoD that found myocarditis.
The evidence in plain sight shows that they are either lying or incompetent. Or both. But of course, the medical community is never going to call them on this. So that’s where our team of vaccine safety experts comes in; to reveal the truth about what is really going on.
In a brand new VAERS data analysis performed by our friend Albert Benavides (aka WelcomeTheEagle88), we found hundreds of serious adverse events that were completely missed by the CDC that should have been mentioned in the informed consent document that are given to patients. And we found over 200 symptoms that occur at a higher relative rate than myocarditis (relative to all previous vaccines over the last 5 years). All together, there were over 4,000 VAERS adverse event codes that were elevated by these vaccines by a factor of 10 or more over baseline that the CDC should have warned people about.
FDA recalls 2.2 million inaccurate Covid-19 tests for false positives | added November 12
The FDA announced this week that the recall of more than 2.2 million at-home COVID-19 tests by digital diagnostics firm Ellume is being classified as a class 1 recall, which is the most serious type due to the potential for “serious adverse health consequences or death.”
Ellume’s at-home test detects proteins from the SARS-CoV-2 virus through a less invasive nasal swab than the one that health providers normally use.
The recall is due to a “manufacturing issue” that was first identified by the company last month and could lead to a false-positive result.
2nd grader suspended 38 times for refusing to wear a mask tells school board they should go to jail | added November 12
A Florida second grader who has been suspended 38 times for refusing to wear a mask to school confronted her local school board — and asserted that they should be in jail.
Fiona Lashells, who just turned 8 years old, told the Palm Beach County school board in no uncertain terms how she felt about their rules.
She is “on a mission to take back, not only her rights but every American child’s constitutional rights from the tyrant school board,” her mother, Bailey Lashells, told The Free Press.
UK Health Security Agency meltsdown over high rates of Covid-19 cases in vaccinated | added November 12
We’re publishing a guest post by a blogger calling himself “eugyppius” about the frantic attempts by the UKHSA to renounce its own data showing infection rates are higher in the vaccinated than they are in the unvaccinated. This post was originally published on eugyppius’s Substack account, which you can subscribe to here. Highly recommended.
Vaccinated vs. unvaccinated case rates in the United Kingdom, from the latest U.K. Health Security Agency vaccine surveillance report.
Yet again I had to draw this graph myself, and yet again, the U.K. Health Security Agency wants you to know that these rates are extremely, totally, absolutely unadjusted. They just don’t know precisely why or how.
Biden administration seeks vaccinated whistleblowers to enforce their unlawful vaccine mandate | added November 12
To enforce President Joe Biden’s new COVID-19 vaccine regulation, the Labor Department is going to need a lot of help. Yet its Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) doesn’t have nearly enough workplace safety inspectors to do the job.
The 490-page regulation will cover American businesses with at least 100 workers, or about 84 million employees in all. So the government will rely upon a corps of informers to identify violations of the order: Employees who will presumably be concerned enough to turn in their own employers if their co-workers go unvaccinated or fail to undergo weekly tests to show they’re virus-free.
What’s not known is just how many employees will be willing to accept some risk to themselves — or their job security — for blowing the whistle on their own employers. Without them, though, experts say the government would find it harder to achieve its goal of requiring tens of millions of workers at large businesses to be fully vaccinated by January 4 or be tested weekly and wear a mask on the job.
21 studies show how illegitimate vaccine mandates are not based on science | added November 12
The following research papers and studies raise doubts that COVID vaccine mandates are backed by science and good public-health practice.
Anyone seeking to challenge these mandates should carefully consult these studies, which demonstrate how the mandates provide no overall health benefit to the community and can even be harmful.
Individuals should decide whether to get the vaccine based on their own assessment of risks in consultation with informed medical professionals.
Taiwan stops second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech Vaccine in 12 to 17-year-olds to check safety | added November 12
Known as the Republic of China or, more commonly, Taiwan, this island nation formed after the communist revolution on the Chinese mainland has, for the most part, avoided much of the pandemic except for a huge Delta variant-driven surge during the spring of 2021. With approximately 23.5 million people, the island has recorded approximately 16,400 cases of SARS-CoV-2 with 848 deaths.
Recently Chen Shih-chung, the leader of their Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC), reported that a panel of experts opted to suspend the administration of the second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine known as BN2162b2 to young people aged 12 to 17-years-old due to growing concerns of the heightened risk of myocarditis.
As reported recently in Taiwan News, health regulators here are increasingly concerned about the safety associated with the mRNA-based vaccine. The Taiwanese report authored by George Liao referred to mounting U.S. safety statistics indicating growing heart muscle inflammation risk to youth post the second Pfizer-BioNTech jab—in some cases as much as 10X higher the risk when compared to the first dose.
Dutch face another lockdown for three weeks as Covid-19 cases supposedly soar | added November 12
AMSTERDAM, Nov 12 (Reuters) – Bars and restaurants will close early and sporting events will be held without audiences under a three-week, partial lockdown that is expected to be announced in the Netherlands on Friday evening.
Dutch broadcaster NOS said the first such measures in Western Europe since the summer will go into effect on Saturday evening in a bid to stop a surge in COVID-19 cases, which hit a record on Thursday.
People will be urged to work from home as much as possible, and no audiences will be allowed at sporting events in the coming weeks, including top-level soccer matches. Schools, theatres and cinemas would remain open.

A Minnesota Vikings player was rushed to an emergency room after experiencing shortness of breath from Covid-19, according to Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer.
“It was scary,” Zimmer said, speaking to the media during the team’s regularly scheduled press availability on Wednesday.
Multiple outlets, including ESPN and NFL.com, reported the player involved is offensive lineman Dakota Dozier. CNN has reached out to the Vikings for comment.
Israeli study shows natural immunity exceeds Covid-19 drug injection | added November 11
As the Delta wave of COVID-19 continues to decline from its mid-September peak in Washington state, many people are concerned about the declining efficacy of the three approved vaccines from the Food and Drug Administration. The government has authorized “at risk” patients to begin getting a booster shot of any of the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson and Johnson vaccines.
Yet an estimated 745,000 Washington citizens have already recovered from COVID-19 according to the Washington Department of Health (DOH). Their body has successfully fought the virus and has developed not only antibodies, but B and T cell lymphocytes to provide a defense should the individual encounter the virus again.
Last week, the DOH launched a new “vaccine verification” tool. The system provides a digital copy of state vaccine records according to the website. “You may also show your CDC provided COVID-19 card or your state immunization record,” the website states if you are required to show “proof” of vaccination status. There is no mention of natural immunity.
Two manipulated studies by the CDC raise concern over Covid-19 vaccine | added November 11
Recent data from the U.K. Office of National Statistics reveals people who have been double jabbed against COVID-19 are dying from all causes at a rate six times higher than the unvaccinated.
In the U.S., meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is propping up the official narrative with two manipulated studies — one suggesting the jab reduces all-cause mortality, and another claiming the shot is five times more protective than natural immunity.
Both studies are of questionable quality and have several problems, including selection of time and date ranges that allow them to pretend that the COVID shots are safer and more effective than they really are.
NBC news called out for lying about Covid-19 in children and being sponsored by Pfizer | added November 11
On a recent episode of “The Jimmy Dore Show,” comedian and political commentator Jimmy Dore accused Dr. John Torres, medical correspondent for NBC News, for overplaying COVID’s risk to children and reporting incorrect statistics.
“This is a story about how money influences corporate news,” Dore said, before playing a compilation video of Pfizer sponsoring newscasts on CNN, NBC, CBS, Good Morning America, ABC News, MSNBC and 60 Minutes.
“So what’s the result of all that Pfizer money going to newsrooms?” Dore asked. “Here’s how they’re going to report on the Pfizer vaccine being authorized for children who are at almost zero risk, according to the science.”
Highly-vaccinated Vermont sees a strange increase with the most recorded Covid-19 cases ever | added November 11
As Vermont reports higher than ever COVID-19 case rates, state health officials have been trying to understand why.
How can a state that did so well during the first part of the pandemic — even garnering national recognition — be doing so much worse now?
“There is not one simple answer,” said Vermont Health Commissioner Dr. Mark Levine during a news conference Tuesday. “But, there are clearly factors that have come together to create the situation that we’re in now.”
Slowing the spread is critical right now to prevent Vermont’s hospitals from being overwhelmed with people sick with the virus, Levine said. He encouraged Vermonters to take the same preventative steps that have been preached throughout the pandemic: wearing masks, practicing physical distancing, staying home when sick and getting vaccinated.
Experts warn the ‘pandemic’ is not over yet and to prepare for the winter months | added November 11
A new surge of Covid-19 cases is expected to start hitting the United States around Thanksgiving just as the holiday season begins, public health experts are warning.
But with more and more Americans vaccinated, it’s not likely to linger as long or do as much damage because there’s a level of protection this season that wasn’t there last year, they say.
“I don’t think the spike will be as bad as last winter because we have vaccines available and the approval for younger age groups is a big game changer, especially for hospitalizations and death rates,” said Monica Wang, an associate professor of community health sciences at the Boston University School of Public Health.

Kim Iverson calls out NFL for vaccine discrimination and the Aaron Rodgers case | added November 10
On the latest episode of The Hill’s “Rising,” journalist and political commentator Kim Iversen broke down the National Football League’s (NFL) vaccine rules, Aaron Rodgers’ COVID controversy and the question of natural immunity in professional sports.
“Last week, Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers quarterback, tested positive for COVID which has caused a firestorm of commentary from those who support him and many who don’t,” Iversen reported.
“Rodgers is doing fine and recovering as well as anyone in his age group is expected, but the controversy is surrounding Rodgers and his previous elusiveness regarding his vaccination status,” she said.
Unvaxed senior NIH scientist willing to lose his job and license over refusing the injection | added November 10
A senior bioethicist who heads a research team at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is taking the lead at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the debate over the ethics of COVID vaccine mandates.
Dr. Matthew Memoli, director of the Laboratory of Infectious Diseases at NIH, will argue against vaccine mandates during a Dec. 1 livestreamed roundtable session, which will be open to the public.
“There’s a lot of debate within the NIH about whether [a vaccine mandate] is appropriate,” David Wendler, a senior NIH bioethicist in charge of planning the session, told the WSJ. “It’s an important, hot topic.”
National Institutes of Health sued for violating Freedom of Information Act | added November 10
A year ago, a fearful world was struggling to emerge from a paralyzing pandemic, a confusing health care crisis that emerged swiftly to sicken and kill millions.
Today, nearly two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still struggling to find our way back from the catastrophic global consequences of the vicious coronavirus. And we are still without answers as to how and why this virus emerged seemingly out of nowhere.
Scientists around the world have been seeking answers about the origin of COVID-19 because knowing how this virus moved into and through the human population could be crucial to avoiding, or preparing for, a similar event in the future.
War on Humanity | added November 10
Halloween was once a popular holiday in Passaic. Year after year, my neighborhood’s lawns abounded in mock-terrifying October decorations – witches on broomsticks, carved pumpkins on the porches, fantastic spider webs festooning the shrubbery.
This year, though, there were hardly any Halloween decorations on display. And like so many small signs of the way the “pandemic” – in plain language, the deepening police state – is bulldozing away what used to be ordinary expressions of human community, the change troubles me.
I understand it, of course. After all, why should children look forward to an evening’s romp as a witch or goblin while tales of an omnipresent Black Death – exaggerations so wild they once would have made normal people laugh out loud – have become our daily dogma? And if the children aren’t celebrating, why should the rest of us?
Inflation prices in America reach the highest in 30 years | added November 10
There’s no end in sight for higher prices. US consumer price inflation surged higher again in October, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Wednesday.
Over the past 12 months, prices climbed 6.2% — the biggest increase since November 1990.
Stripping out food and energy prices, which tend to be more volatile, the index rose 4.6% over the same period, the biggest jump since August 1991.
The overall price index rose 0.9% in October alone, adjusted for seasonal swings, significantly more than the 0.6% economists had predicted, and overshadowing the somewhat more tepid 0.4% increase from September.
California CVS breaks the law and injects a 16 year old minor with Covid-19 shot | added November 10
A California mom is accusing a CVS Pharmacy of giving her 16-year-old son the COVID-19 vaccine without her consent, according to a local report.
Amanda Arroyo told KOVR that her son made an appointment online to get the vaccine at a CVS Pharmacy in Davis, California.
“He was like, ‘My arm hurts,’ and I said, ‘What happened?’” Arroyo told the station. “And he was like, ‘I had my COVID shot,’ and I was like ‘Wait, what?’”
Arroyo said the pharmacist told her she was only trying to keep the community safe by vaccinating as many people as possible. She now wants the pharmacist to be held responsible and worries the same thing might happen to other parents.
Gov. Kathy Hochul raffles off a full scholarship ride as an incentive to inject 5-11 year olds | added November 10
MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. (WROC) — Gov. Kathy Hochul hosted a coronavirus briefing Tuesday afternoon to update New Yorkers on the state’s ongoing pandemic response efforts.
The governor announced the expansion of the state’s SUNY/CUNY full scholarship vaccine incentive for kids 5-11 years old. Kids in that age group who received the COVID-19 vaccine will be entered into a pool where 50 winners will later be selected.
This new incentive program — dubbed “Vaccinate. Educate. Graduate.” — builds on the state’s earlier “Get a Shot to Make Your Future” campaign for 12-18 year olds who got vaccinated.
Thousands of New Zealand protesters show up against Covid-19 injection mandates | added November 9
WELLINGTON, Nov 9 (Reuters) – New Zealand beefed up security measures at its parliament on Tuesday as thousands of people gathered to protest against COVID-19 vaccine mandates and government lockdowns aimed at controlling the pandemic.
All but two entrances to the parliament building, known as the Beehive, were closed off in unprecedented security measures, as mostly unmasked protesters marched through central Wellington and congregated outside parliament.
While the demonstration was peaceful, many people were seen holding signs and placards with messages like “Freedom” and “Kiwis are not lab rats” and shouting slogans as they demanded the government roll back compulsory vaccination and lift restrictions.
White House ignores court-ordered pause and says businesses should proceed with vaccine mandates | added November 9
The White House on Monday said businesses should move forward with President Joe Biden’s vaccine and testing requirements for private businesses, despite a federal appeals court ordering a temporary halt to the rules.
“People should not wait,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters during a briefing. “They should continue to move forward and make sure they’re getting their workplace vaccinated.”
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, considered one of the most conservative appellate courts in the country, halted the requirements Saturday pending review, writing that “the petitions give cause to believe there are grave statutory and constitutional issues with the Mandate.”
Singapore government will no longer cover the cost for Covid-19 treatment if unvaccinated | added November 9
The Lion City is shaking its mane, with the Singapore government announcing Monday that it will no longer cover the medical costs of COVID-19 patients “unvaccinated by choice.” In a statement released by the Ministry of Health, it noted that “unvaccinated persons make up a sizable majority of those who require intensive inpatient care, and disproportionately contribute to the strain on our health care resources.”
From Dec. 8, the government will no longer foot COVID-19 treatment bills for the fully unvaccinated, and partially vaccinated people will only be covered until Dec. 31. Until “the COVID-19 situation is more stable,” the statement said, the government will continue to pay medical costs for the fully vaccinated and those who aren’t yet eligible for jabs, including young children and those with certain medical conditions.
Misinformation about the virus is rife on social messaging platforms like WhatsApp, local outlets have reported, with one expert describing the online discussion of vaccines as “acidic.” Currently, 85 percent of Singapore’s eligible residents have been fully vaccinated, with 18 percent having received booster shots. Of 91,000 new coronavirus infections reported in the last 28 days, just over 1,700 have been hospitalized.
Big Bird becomes the newest face for government propaganda by pushing the Covid-19 shot for children | added November 9
Sesame Street’s Big Bird is making headlines today after tweeting he had received the COVID vaccine.
The fictional children’s character is supposed to be 6 years old, which if he were real, means he became eligible for the COVID vaccine last week when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine for emergency use in children ages 5 through 11.
Big Bird’s endorsement of the COVID vaccine for children isn’t an isolated incident — it’s just the latest example of Sesame Street endorsing federal health agencies’ COVID messaging for young children, with the help of corporate media.
But the announcement was met with backlash from elected officials and media pundits who accused the character of spreading government propaganda.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom injured from an adverse reaction to the Moderna booster shot | added November 9
A source close to California Gov. Gavin Newsom today told The Defender the governor experienced an adverse reaction to the Moderna COVID vaccine he received Oct. 27.
The source, who asked not to be identified, said Newsom’s symptoms were similar to those associated with Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS), a known side effect of many vaccines.
GBS is a neurological disorder in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks part of its peripheral nervous system — the network of nerves located outside of the brain and spinal cord — and can range from a very mild case with brief weakness to paralysis to leaving the person unable to breathe independently.
The governor has not been seen in public since he was photographed Oct. 27 getting his COVID booster.
Why did one unsettling and important book on Covid-19 origins receive so more censorship? | added November 9
A new book has been published on the origin of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. As you’ll gather from my review, it doesn’t pull its punches. That’s both refreshing and important because the origins issue has been bedeviled by censorship, including self-censorship.
I explored this problem of censorship with two of the books’ authors when I interviewed them recently to discuss their book. I wanted to know whether they’d had direct experiences of censorship — and if so, what were the motivations behind it, in their view.
Combining investigative journalism with scientific analysis made accessible to the layperson, this book argues that a “crime against global health” has been committed by certain entities and individuals, starting with the Chinese government and including scientists and institutions in the West.
A chart shows the common side effects of the Pfizer shot in children | added November 9
At long last, kids are starting to filter into pharmacies and clinics for COVID-19 shots.
The Food and Drug Administration authorized a lower dose of Pfizer’s vaccine for emergency use in children ages 5 to 11 in October. Then last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officially greenlit the shot for this younger age group — nearly a year after the first Americans started receiving COVID-19 vaccines.
Kids receive one-third of the standard dose of the mRNA shot given to adults: 10 micrograms versus 30 micrograms. Because of that, children can generally expect fewer side effects.
I’m a nurse. I’m not taking the shot. | added November 8
“Good evening Kimberly, I understand that you are not vaccinated against COVID-19. As you will not be receiving your vaccine, your file will unfortunately be inactivated. I wish you the best in your future endeavors.”
This is the text message I received at 8:30 pm on Election Day 2021, giving me an ultimatum of getting the injection by the next evening or else I will be cut loose from my home health position as an LPN, or licensed practical nurse.
Feeling violated and confused, I thought about my patient that I am responsible for caring for the next morning. This mandate is forcing me and the company to abandon the care of a medically fragile patient who needs daily skilled nursing. The patient and caregiver were very distraught as they asked the agency to find a way to keep my care, expressing that even though the patient is ventilator-dependent, has respiratory issues and is medically fragile. Yet they feel completely safe with me in their home without my being “vaccinated.”
The Man Who Died Alone | added November 8
Our gravely concerned Globalist jailers have placed us in psychic open-air graves clear around the world. As the sun rises and sets, they bray and bray, like mules made of recycled tin, their unceasing hammer blows to our exhausted souls, that we must, as the singular and final act of human decency, “get vaccinated.”So they think we didn’t hear them the last ten thousand times they said it? What does it mean to repeat ONE THING over and over and over and over to a person, or to 400 million people? It means you don’t acknowledge their aliveness, or your own. There are no longer ears, anywhere, no give and take, no dialogue. No life.
I just watched this Biden Propaganda clip, and as ever, the man makes me despair, even though I don’t believe in despair.
Somebody working for the US Gov actually wrote the words: “This is not about your freedom.”

Feds pay zero dollars for Covid-19 injury claims | added November 8
In fiscal year 2021, the U.S. government paid $246.9 million in claims for vaccine-related injuries and deaths. Not a single payout was related to Covid-19 vaccines.
Each person with a “provable” injury from a Covid vaccine could claim up to $379,000 from a special Covid vaccine fund set up by the federal government. The payout for death could be as high as $370,376.
However, according to an OpenTheBooks.com investigation, the federal government didn’t pay a penny for Covid-vaccine claims. The special fund for these claims is called the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP).
Lawsuits over injection mandates focus on states’ rights | added November 8
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — More than two dozen Republican-led states filed lawsuits Friday challenging President Joe Biden’s vaccine requirement for private companies, setting up a high-stakes legal showdown pitting federal authority against states’ rights.
The requirement issued Thursday by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration applies to businesses with more than 100 employees. Their workers must be vaccinated against COVID-19 by Jan. 4 or face mask requirements and weekly tests. The lawsuits ask courts to decide whether the administration’s effort to curtail the pandemic represents a federal power grab and usurps the authority of states to set health policy.
At least 27 states filed lawsuits challenging the rule.

“Everyone can use a little more money around the holidays but most importantly we want our kids and our families to be safe,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement.
The new policy will apply to New York City-run vaccine sites and comes two days after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approved Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use for children 5-11-years-old.
The mayor said that getting the vaccine now will allow children to be fully vaccinated before Christmas, hoping that the $100 incentive will drive people to show up and get extra money for holidays.
Italian Institute of Health drastically reduces covid-19 death numbers after changing the fatality definition related to the ‘virus’ | added November 8
Italian newspaper Il Tempo reports that the Institute has revised downward the number of people who have died from COVID rather than with COVID from 130,000 to under 4,000.
“Yes, you read that right. Turns out 97.1% of deaths hitherto attributed to Covid were not due directly to Covid,” writes Toby Young.
Of the of the 130,468 deaths registered as official COVID deaths since the start of the pandemic, only 3,783 are directly attributable to the virus alone.
Risk benefit analysis of 5-11 year old children shows a willingness to kill 117 kids to save 1 from covid-19 | added November 8
Dr. Toby Rogers writes a popular substack looking at risk benefit issues. His credentials are described here.
In a recent article that I hope everyone will read or at least skim, he concluded: “So, to put it simply, the Biden administration plan would kill 5,248 children via Pfizer mRNA shots in order to save 45 children from dying of coronavirus. For every one child saved by the shot, another 117 would be killed by the shot.”
That’s stunning. Read it again. We kill 117 kids to save one kid.
Not surprising to me. It’s consistent with the scientific peer-reviewed literature such as the Kostoff paper which concluded:
In plain English, people in the 65+ demographic are five times as likely to die from the inoculation as from COVID-19 under the most favorable assumptions! This demographic is the most vulnerable to adverse effects from COVID-19. As the age demographics go below about 35 years old, the chances of death from COVID-19 become very small, and when they go below 18, become negligible.
U.S. to lift restrictions on foreign travelers who are fully vaxed | added November 8
NEW YORK (WABC) — The U.S. is lifting restrictions on foreign travelers who are fully vaccinated against COVID, starting Monday.
The Biden administration is expecting long lines and delays at airports with travelers possibly pouring into the states.
When the announcement was made, online searches for international flights jumped 338%.
Delta Airlines saw bookings shoot up by 450%, and United Airlines says it will be bringing 30,000 travelers into the U.S. on Monday alone.
Ernest Ramirez Testimony of his 16 Year Old Son’s Death After Pfizer Vaccine – Press Conference | added November 5
Senator Ron Johnson held an “Expert Panel on Federal Vaccine Mandates” on November 2nd, 2021, inviting victims of the COVID vaccine to tell their stories, as well as experts, scientists, physicians, lawyers speaking on the scientific and ethical conflicts of interests behind vaccine mandates.
Quebec to make vaccines mandatory only for new hires to prevent a shortage of workers | added November 5
MONTREAL — In an about-face, facing a drastic service reduction, Quebec has decided that health-care workers already employed won’t be forced to get a COVID-19 vaccine, the province’s health minister said Wednesday.
Health Minister Christian Dubé said that the province is facing 500 service reductions or reorganizations if it goes ahead with its planned Nov. 15 deadline for staff vaccines.
Instead of the previous plan, now only new hires will be required to be vaccinated, he said, though the province will try hard to replace those workers with vaccinated ones over time.
OSHA gives employees until after the holidays to get vaccinated | added November 5
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) today issued an emergency temporary standard (ETS) giving employers with more than 100 employees until Jan. 4 to comply with President Biden’s COVID vaccine mandate.
The mandate covers more than 84 million workers and two-thirds of the nation’s private-sector workforce.The 490-page rule, which will be published in the Federal Register on Nov. 5, says:
“covered employers must develop, implement and enforce a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy, with an exception for employers that instead adopt a policy requiring employees to either get vaccinated or elect to undergo regular COVID-19 testing and wear a face covering at work in lieu of vaccination.”
Fauci’s Gain of function research was flagged by staffers back in May 2016 | added November 5
Two subordinates of Dr. Anthony Fauci raised concerns in May 2016 that a taxpayer-funded grant may include gain-of-function experiments on bat coronaviruses at a Wuhan lab, but dropped the issue after nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance downplayed the concerns, documents obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation show.
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) staffers Jenny Greer and Erik Stemmy told EcoHealth in a May 28, 2016, letter that a proposed grant “may include” gain of function research, according to documents obtained through a White Coat Waste Project information request.
The letter requested EcoHealth provide its own “determination” as to whether its proposed experiments in Wuhan included gain of function research.
Join Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. today for a Live Virtual Book Signing — ‘The Real Anthony Fauci’ | added November 5
As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci dispenses $6.1 billion in annual taxpayer-provided funding for scientific research. Fauci’s gargantuan yearly disbursements allow him to dictate the subject, content and outcome of scientific health research across the globe.
These annual disbursements also allow Fauci to exercise dictatorial control over the army of “knowledge-and-innovation” leaders who populate the “independent” federal panels that approve and mandate drugs and vaccines — including the committees that allowed the Emergency Use Authorization of COVID-19 vaccines — recently, for children as young as 5 years old.
Fauci uses the financial clout at his disposal to wield extraordinary influence over hospitals, universities, journals and thousands of influential doctors and scientists — whose careers and institutions he has the power to ruin, advance or reward.

Winter is coming…and you know what that means. That’s right, it’s nearly time once again for the global-capitalist ruling classes to whip the New Normal masses into a state of mindless mass hysteria over an imaginary apocalyptic virus.
The same imaginary apocalyptic virus that they have whipped the New Normal masses into a state of mass hysteria over throughout the Winter for the last two years.

Dozens of Senate Republicans move to nullify Biden’s vax mandate on private employees | added November 4
EXCLUSIVE: More than three dozen Senate Republicans are moving to formally disapprove and nullify President Biden’s vaccine mandate on private employees Wednesday under the Congressional Review Act — the official process for Congress to eliminate an executive branch rule.
Sen. Mike Braun of Indiana is leading 42 Republican senators on Wednesday to “strike down” Biden’s rule, which mandates employees — at private businesses with 100 workers or more — to receive COVID-19 vaccines.
Republicans blasted the mandate, which Biden introduced in September, and the forthcoming formal rule from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which is expected to be released in the coming days — calling it “unacceptable” and an order that “warrants review by Congress.”
Unjabbed? Families may not get death benefits if they die of ‘covid-19’ | added November 4
These days, workers who refuse to get vaccinated against covid-19 may face financial repercussions, from higher health insurance premiums to loss of their jobs. Now, the financial fallout might follow workers beyond the grave. If they die of covid and weren’t vaccinated, their families may not get death benefits they would otherwise have received.
New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority no longer pays a $500,000 death benefit to the families of subway, bus and commuter rail workers who die of covid if the workers were unvaccinated at the time of death.
“It strikes me as needlessly cruel,” said Mark DeBofsky, a lawyer at DeBofsky Sherman Casciari Reynolds in Chicago who represents workers in benefit disputes.
New survey shows parents not so willing to bring their kids to get vaxed | added November 4
(WFSB) – Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine has been approved for children ages 5 to 11, but a new survey shows why some parents are against it.
The survey was put out by QuoteWizard by LendingTree, LLC, which showed nationwide, 60% of people surveyed say concerns over side effects will keep them from vaccinating their children.
In Connecticut, the survey showed 65 percent are concerned about side effects, and 28 percent say they aren’t sure if children need the vaccine.
The survey went on to show that 37 percent are waiting to see if the vaccine is safe.
Vax injured speak out about abandonment from Government after saying the jab was ‘safe’ | added November 4
U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) on Tuesday held a discussion with a panel of experts, including clinicians, scientists, lawyers and patient advocates, and with people injured by COVID vaccines, who gave powerful testimonies about their experiences.
Johnson and the expert panel discussed the importance of early treatment for COVID, healthcare freedom and natural immunity, the impacts of mandates on the American workforce and the economy, COVID vaccine safety concerns and the lack of transparency from federal health agencies in response to his COVID oversight requests.
None of the major mainstream media outlets picked up the event, but Children’s Health Defense hosted Johnson’s live panel discussion on CHD.TV.
CDC endorses the drug jab for children regardless of expert concern over clinical data | added November 4
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) vaccine advisory panel today unanimously recommended Pfizer’s COVID vaccine for children 5 to 11, despite concerns raised during the meeting about Pfizer’s clinical data, the fact that children who previously acquired natural immunity to COVID were included in clinical trials and evidence showing COVID poses little risk to children.
If Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the CDC’s director signs off on the decision, children ages 5 through 11 could start receiving COVID vaccines as early as tonight.
The younger age group will receive one-third of the dose authorized for those 12 and older in two shots at least three weeks apart. The doses will be delivered by smaller needles and stored in smaller vials to avoid a mix-up with adult doses.
First experimental drug pill gets approved by UK to treat ‘covid-19’ | added November 4
The first pill designed to treat symptomatic Covid has been approved by the UK medicines regulator.
The tablet – molnupiravir – will be given twice a day to vulnerable patients recently diagnosed with the disease.
In clinical trials the pill, originally developed to treat flu, cut the risk of hospitalisation or death by about half.
Health secretary Sajid Javid said the treatment was a “gamechanger” for the most frail and immunosuppressed.
Lockheed Martin employees take time off the job to protest vax mandates | added November 4
PINELLAS PARK, Fla. — James Grambor has worked as a fabricator for defense contractor Lockheed Martin in Pinellas County for more than 17 years, but he took some time off his job on Wednesday afternoon to protest the pending mandate from his employer to get a COVID-19 vaccination next month.
“I’m very afraid of losing my job,” he said about his refusal to get vaccinated. “But not afraid enough to put something in me my religion stands against and that my morals stand against and ours should stand against.”
Similar protests by employees working for defense contractors have been taking place around the country. They began after President Joe Biden issued an executive order in September requiring federal contractors to ensure their employees are vaccinated against COVID-19 and following masking and social distancing policies. The administration set a Dec. 8 deadline for contractors to implement those requirements.
Increased screen time for teens during the pandemic connected to mental health concerns | added November 3
Editor’s note: Check out the JAMA Pediatrics research letter that explains how digital screens effect adolescent brain development and the physical and mental health risks associated with spending too much time connected to AI. — mmd
Adolescents had more than a mean 8 hours of screen time in the early pandemic period, almost doubling pre-pandemic totals, researchers found.
A large national sample of 5,412 adolescents found that mean screen time rose to 7.7 hours/day from pre-pandemic estimates of 3.8 hours/day at baseline, reported Jason Nagata, MD, of University of California San Francisco, and colleagues.
Moreover, adjusted models found that mental health and greater perceived stress were significantly associated with higher screen time, while more social support and coping behaviors were significantly associated with lower screen time, they wrote in a JAMA Pediatrics research letter.

Just a walk in the woods or a stroll by the beach on a sunny morning can awaken the innermost feelings of happiness and peace, and Environmental Psychology has gone a long way proving this fact (Bell, Greene, Fisher, & Baum, 1996)
Our affinity toward nature is genetic and deep-rooted in evolution. For example, have you ever wondered why most people prefer to book accommodations that have a great view from the balcony or the terrace? Why patients who get a natural view from their hospital bed recover sooner than others? Or why does it happen that when stress takes a toll on our mind, we crave for time to figure out things amidst nature?

Judge denies dealing with groups fighting for LAUSD student medical freedom | added November 3
A judge has denied a temporary restraining order sought by two nonprofit groups representing parents of nearly 1,500 Los Angeles Unified students who oppose the LAUSD’s student COVID-19 vaccine mandate on grounds such decisions should be left to the state Department of Public Health.
“Balancing the likelihood of success and the relative harm to be suffered, the court is not persuaded emergency relief is warranted,” Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Amy D. Hogue wrote Friday in response to the TRO application brought by the California Chapter of Children’s Health Defense as well as a second group, Protection of the Educational Rights of Kids.
Waiting seven weeks after the Board of Education approved the mandate on Sept. 9 to file the TRO application undercuts the groups’ contention that their members will suffer immediate severe or irreparable harm, Hogue further wrote.
Vax rebellions rise across all job sectors with the enforcement of unjust mandates | added November 3
AUSTIN/SEATTLE, Nov 2 (Reuters) – In Wichita, Kansas, nearly half of the roughly 10,000 employees at aircraft companies Textron Inc (TXT.N) and Spirit AeroSystems (SPR.N) remain unvaccinated against COVID-19, risking their jobs in defiance of a federal mandate, according to a union official.
“We’re going to lose a lot of employees over this,” said Cornell Beard, head of the local Machinists union district. Many workers did not object to the vaccines as such, he said, but were staunchly opposed to what they see as government meddling in personal health decisions.
The union district has hired a Texas-based lawyer to assist employees and prepare potential lawsuits against the companies should requests for medical or religious exemptions to vaccination be denied.
NY gets pumped with billions for Covid-19 relief, but what about essential workers losing their jobs for refusing the drug jab? | added November 3
The federal government has injected $272 billion in COVID-19 relief funding to New York, bolstering support for local governments, businesses and individual families that have struggled during the crisis.
But an economist at The New School in an analysis Tuesday pointed to sustained economic hardship in New York for many people, especially people of color, and the highest jobs deficit in the country.
“The share of New York’s families experiencing hardship is alarmingly high, particularly among Black and Latinx populations, according to the latest Census data. The pandemic’s economic effects have been extremely lopsided,” said James Parrott, an economist for The New School’s Center for New York City Affairs.

Big drug giant Pfizer spends more money on ads and sponsorship than research | added November 3
“Good Μorning America is brought to you by Pfizer.”
“CBS HealthWatch, sponsored by Pfizer.”
“Anderson Cooper 360°, brought to you by Pfizer.”
“ABC News Nightline, brought to you by Pfizer.”
These are just some of the many recent examples where Pfizer has sponsored prominent television news and information programs on American television.
Shared by journalist Whitney Webb, these clips, at face value, are demonstrative of a company aggressively pursuing a marketing and public relations campaign by means of sponsoring popular news programs.
But is there more to it than mere marketing?
In a recent segment on his online talk show, commentator and comedian Jimmy Dore ran off a list of recent headlines published by CNBC.com, presenting Pfizer in a positive light. Dore capped the segment off by presenting a recent tweet posted on CNBC’s official Twitter account, again portraying Pfizer in glowing terms, accompanied by the text: “paid post for Pfizer.”
Disneyland Shanghai turns disastrous as thousands are forced into lockdown | added November 3
Hong Kong (CNN) Health workers in hazmat suits are not typically among the cast of characters featured at Shanghai Disneyland’s Halloween party.
That was until this year, when a single confirmed case sent the park, and its adjacent shopping district, Disneytown, into a snap lockdown Sunday evening.
The extreme measure saw tens of thousands of visitors and staff forced to undergo coronavirus testing before they were allowed to leave the park, as police blocked the exits and secured the grounds.
How Fauci fools America by proposing a pandemic | added November 2
When the pandemic hit, America needed someone to turn to for advice. The media and public naturally looked to Dr. Anthony Fauci—the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, an esteemed laboratory immunologist and one of President Donald Trump’s chosen COVID advisers. Unfortunately, Dr. Fauci got major epidemiology and public health questions wrong. Reality and scientific studies have now caught up with him.
Here are the key issues:
Natural immunity. By pushing vaccine mandates, Dr. Fauci ignores naturally acquired immunity among the COVID-recovered, of which there are more than 45 million in the United States. Mounting evidence indicates that natural immunity is stronger and longer lasting than vaccine-induced immunity. In a study from Israel, the vaccinated were 27 times more likely to get symptomatic COVID than the unvaccinated who had recovered from a prior infection.
Court upholds religious ban to enforce unconstitutional vax mandate for NY medical workers | added November 2
A federal appeals court has upheld the religious-exemption ban pertaining to New York’sCOVID-19 vaccine mandate for medical workers.
The U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals late Friday issued a ruling that allowed enforcement of the vaccine mandate against medical workers claiming a religious exemption.
The order has had far-reaching implications for thousands of health care workers who requested religious exemptions to avoid getting shots. Many of them have been placed on suspension or allowed to keep working with various safety measures, such as testing and mask wearing, pending the outcome of the court battle.
Specifically formulated and highly questionable drug jabs for children will arrive soon | added November 2
WASHINGTON, Nov 1 (Reuters) – The United States is rolling out Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines for children aged 5 to 11 this week, but most of the 15 million shots being shipped initially are unlikely to be available before next week, the White House said on Monday.
Millions of doses specifically formulated for children of that age group will start arriving at distribution centers over the next few days, White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeff Zients said, and the federal government has purchased enough supply for all eligible 28 million children.
“We are ready to execute, pending CDC’s decision. And starting the week of November 8th, our vaccination program for kids ages 5 through 11 will be running at full strength,” Zients told reporters at a briefing.
How to hold accountable the 17 Pharma Henchmen who voted to experiment on children | added November 2
On Oct. 26, the membership of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) voted 17-0 in favor of lower-dose use of Pfizer’s experimental COVID-19 vaccine in children ages 5 to 11.
The 17 individuals — including an “acting” committee chair and 11 voting members who were temporary rather than core VRBPAC members — formulaically stated the injections’ benefits outweigh the risks in that age group.
Three days later, Dr. Janet Woodcock — a 35-year FDA veteran serving “temporarily” as commissioner — evoked her personal credentials “as a mother and a physician” when she predictably extended Pfizer’s emergency use authorization (EUA) to the 5-11 age group, having previously granted EUAs for adolescents (ages 12-15) and those age 16 and up.

Johnson will also talk with patients who have experienced adverse events due to the COVID-19 vaccine and discuss vaccine mandates.
Children’s Health Defense will host Sen. Johnson’s live panel discussion on CHD.TV.
The senator will discuss the importance of early treatment for COVID, Americans’ health care freedom and natural immunity. Johnson will also cover the impacts of mandates on the American workforce and the economy, and the lack of transparency from federal health agencies in response to his COVID-19 oversight requests.
At least 2,000 NYC firefighters walk off the job due to unjust vax mandates | added November 2
At least 2,000 New York City firefighters have taken medical leave this past week, which some officials have labeled a protest as unvaccinated municipal workers in the city face the start of sanctions Monday.
“Irresponsible bogus sick leave by some of our members is creating a danger for New Yorkers and their fellow Firefighters. They need to return to work or risk the consequences of their actions,” Commissioner Daniel Nigro said over the weekend, according to NBC New York.
Thousands of the workers had until 5 p.m. Friday to show proof that they have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Those who don’t get on board will be placed on unpaid leave starting Monday – a scenario that has labor unions warning of staffing shortages.
Biden administration plans to enforce unconstitutional vax rule on private businesses | added November 2
The Biden administration will publish in the coming days a rule requiring private businesses to ensure their employees are vaccinated against Covid-19, the Department of Labor said Monday.
The rule applies to businesses with 100 or more employees. It’s estimated to cover about two-thirds of the private sector workforce.
The development comes immediately after the White House issued separate vaccine-enforcement guidelines for federal contractors that apply to millions of workers.

A new Lancet study questions efficacy of drug jab against Covid-19 variants | added November 1
The Lancet has just released another study comparing the efficacy of COVID vaccines to the efficacy of protection provided by previous COVID infections. Their conclusion: while vaccines lower the risk of infections with the delta variant within households, those who are fully vaccinated are still vulnerable to a ‘breakthrough’ infection if somebody they live with gets infected.
The new study, which was published Thursday in the Lancet, the British medical journal that published some of the earliest research on COVID, is one of few to use detailed infection data from actual examples of household transmission, and it showed that – as we noted above – the viral loads of both vaccinated and unvaccinated patients infected with COVID are “broadly similar”.
The data showed that vaccination status doesn’t make a whole lot of difference in the ability to pass COVID on to others.
G20 sets a goal with top finance and health ministers to vax 70% of the world population by mid 2022 | added November 1
ROME, Oct 29 (Reuters) – Finance and health ministers from the world’s 20 biggest economies (G20) said on Friday they would take steps to ensure 70% of the world’s population is vaccinated against COVID-19 by mid-2022 and created a task force to fight future pandemics.
They could not reach agreement on a separate financing facility proposed by the United States and Indonesia, but said the task force would explore options for mobilising funds to boost pandemic preparedness, prevention and response.
“To help advance toward the global goals of vaccinating at least 40 percent of the population in all countries by the end of 2021 and 70 percent by mid-2022 … we will take steps to help boost the supply of vaccines and essential medical products and inputs in developing countries and remove relevant supply and financing constraints,” the G20 ministers said in a statement.
Unvaxed employees may be required to pay for questionable Covid-19 tests according to Biden’s vaccine mandate rule | added November 1
(Bloomberg Law) — The Biden administration’s highly anticipated vaccine mandate rule for private-sector employers will allow businesses to force workers who refuse to get the Covid-19 shot to pay for required weekly tests and masks, two sources familiar with the matter said.
The emergency rule, which will apply to companies with at least 100 employees and is expected to be released next week, will give employers the option of paying for testing and masks for unvaccinated workers or compelling those employees to foot the bill themselves, according to the sources, who requested anonymity because they didn’t have approval to discuss the rulemaking.
Employers will be required to absorb testing and mask costs in cases where a worker qualifies for an exemption to vaccination under federal law, the sources said. For instance, employers could be required to finance testing and masks for a worker who is entitled to a religious exemption or to an accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Companies also may be ordered to pay when testing costs are subject to a union bargaining agreement.
22 new studies raise doubts about using children as a vaccination experiment | added November 1
The evidence is pouring in that COVID-19 vaccines are not as efficacious as advertised against the Delta variant that became dominant in the fall of 2021.
The Delta is learning how to thrive. The evidence has further accumulated to show that the vaccinated are showing viral loads (very high) similar to the unvaccinated, and the vaccinated are equally as infectious.
The gestalt of the findings implies that the infection explosion globally — post double vaccination e.g., Israel, UK, U.S. etc. — that we have been experiencing may be likely due to the possibility that the vaccinated are driving the epidemic/pandemic and not the unvaccinated. We have been vaccinating against the wild-type virus that is no longer a pressing concern.
Fully vaxed and ‘feeling fine’ Jon Bon Jovi forced to cancel Miami concert after testing positive for Covid-19 | added November 1
Jon Bon Jovi was forced to cancel a Miami concert at the last minute Saturday after testing positive for Covid-19.
The singer was scheduled to appear at the “Runaway With JBJ” fan event Saturday — featuring a Q&A sessions, photo ops and an acoustic performance — when the crowd was informed soon after entering Miami’s Loews South Beach that Bon Jovi’s pre-show rapid test came back positive, with someone informing the audience that while the singer “feels great,” he was going “to bed.”
A rep for Bon Jovi told Variety, “Jon is fully vaccinated and feeling fine.” Bon Jovi’s Halloween appearance at the “Runaway With JBJ” event — which was set to feature a costume party — has also been called off.
At least 20 states have sued the Biden administration over jab mandates | added November 1
WASHINGTON — At least 20 states have now filed lawsuits against the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, with nearly all of them coming in a wave on Friday. It comes as federal workers have a few days left to get their final dose with federal contractor employees not too far behind.
Attorneys general from Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming signed on to one lawsuit Friday, which was filed in a federal district court in Missouri. Another group of states including Georgia, Alabama, Idaho, Kansas, South Carolina, Utah and West Virginia filed a lawsuit in federal district court in Georgia.
The states asked a federal judge to block Democratic President Joe Biden’s requirement that all employees of federal contractors be vaccinated against the coronavirus by Dec. 8, arguing that the mandate violates federal procurement law and is an overreach of federal power.
