Dear White Vermonters:

Why are you acting so surprised? Didn’t we say our highest priority is embodied in our new state slogan: “Diversity-Inclusion-Equity for You Too” (DIE YT)?

When we said DIE YT, we meant DIE YT.

Yours truly,

The Government of Vermont

Column: California rushed to vaccinate poor people. But what about transgender people?
Erika D. Smith
Wed, March 31, 2021, 7:05 PM·5 min read

… This kind of vaccine hesitancy in the transgender community is common, yet, even on International Transgender Day of Visibility, which was on Wednesday this year, it has been invisible.

… “There is a fair amount of skepticism, particularly within the trans and gender-nonconforming community, about COVID vaccinations,” said Jury Candelario, director of APAIT, formerly known as the Asian Pacific AIDS Intervention Team. “Some of our clients have just declined.” …

Our goal is to create a safe and engaging place for users to connect over interests and passions. In order to improve our community experience, we are temporarily suspending article commenting.

The point is that some people are just holier than other people. Now, we’re not going to get into the details of who is the holiest, whether it’s BIPOCs or transgenders. But we can all come together and agree that white men should be last in line.

    Agree and would add the following points:

    1. Every word of CoronaFraud is, and has been, a lie.
    2. The mission has always been (drastic) population reduction, PARTICULARLY OF NON-WHITES .
    3. The methodology has been:
    a) massive psy-op
    b) the "vaccine"
    c) the "kill switch " in the vaccine, or as a binary agent released later.
    3. Whatever else the Elites are, they are White (ish), they have no use for Proles or non-Whites.
    BTW, Gardasil was the first kill switch, it has sterilized maybe 20-25% of females under 30, again, skewed non-Whites, but TPTB found it too slow and got really ambitious. They probably couldn't have believed the psy-op would succeed as well as it did ( I know I can't) but here we are.

    Ahh, the vaccine nonsense.

    @Abelard Lindsey

    Karl Denninger, yesterday:
    "The CDC Admits I Was Right
    Told you so. ``An overwhelming majority of people who have been hospitalized, needed a ventilator or died from Covid-19 have been overweight or obese, the CDC said in a new study Monday. Among 148,494 adults who received a Covid-19 diagnosis during an emergency department or inpatient visit at 238 U.S. hospitals from March to December, 71,491 were hospitalized. Of those who were admitted, 27.8% were overweight and 50.2% were obese, according to the CDC report.``
    So, basically, if you're not a fat-ass then your odds of getting hammered by Covid drop by 80%. Here's what I said on April 9th of last year. ``You have until fall folks. Yes, we have our lockdowns today, but if they don't cut this bull**** out soon hospitals are going to start collapsing for lack of funding and supply chains will break in critical ways.``
    What did you do? You packed on 29 more lbs on average. And then winter came and people died. It is not my responsibility to "wear a masssssssssssk" because you intentionally ate yourself into a ****ing blob knowing ******n well that it might kill you -- and in many cases it did."

    CDC FastStats:
    "Obesity and Overweight in US
    Adults
    - Percent of adults aged 20 and over with obesity: 42.5% (2017-2018)
    - Percent of adults aged 20 and over with overweight, including obesity: 73.6% (2017-2018)."

    In other words, per CDC, COVID deaths are nearly identically distributed wrt BMI as is the general US population.

    Is this Karl also a chosen fellow? So much stan for so little value...

    @Abelard Lindsey

    Denninger's is by far the most reasonable objection to the vaccines I've heard so far. I've gotten really irritated with cranks making up absurd claims about what these vaccines do and what the risks are. Lying makes us indistinguishable from leftists.

    Still, I expect that they will confer sterilizing immunity for four reasons:

    1) Neutralizing antibodies have been isolated from people who took the vaccines (Moderna for example https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2022483)

    2) A lot of vaccines that do not confer sterilizing immunity are made from inactivated pathogens (using polio as an example, viral particles whose surface proteins have been denatured by formalin.) The copy of the spike protein your body produces with the Pfizer & Moderna vaccines' mRNA hasn't been denatured like this.

    3) Since the spike protein is the only epitope for which the mRNA vaccines immunize us, all antibodies produced with the help of the vaccine will bind to the spike protein and *likely* lower its binding affinity for the ACE2 receptor (thereby reducing its ability to replicate in the body). Proteins like the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein rely on a combination of high binding affinity & high binding specificity, so they do not like to have their conformation changed -- it's like smashing a key with a hammer before inserting it into a lock. This is really just the biochem that explains 1).

    4) Vaccine patients (Pfizer in this study) do indeed show lower viral load after subsequent infection: "...these Ct differences represent a decrease of 2.8–4.5-fold in viral load in vaccinated individuals." Bear in mind that this is subject to range restriction, since the vaccinated and nonvaccinated people here had both tested positive for SARS-CoV-2.

    https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-021-01316-7

    As for the "experts" and the media telling us that we don't know if the vaccines confer sterilizing immunity: on some level they're right -- more research should absolutely be done -- but I think the main thing they're doing here is virtue signaling and fearmongering. Everything we DO know about this gives us reasons for optimism.

    All this being the case, I think I agree with Denninger in large part: the risks were large enough that it should've been addressed more clearly and earlier, and therefore these studies should have been done more thoroughly and earlier. And I hope to heaven that the ongoing research finds what I think it will.

    Biomedical research re: Covid moves a lot faster than usual... but it's still too slow.

  3. We’ve been through this all before, if you want the vaccine, just tell them you’re a person of color, and dare them to challenge you on it. If they do then turn on your phone and start filming. Make these racists famous.

    This essentially is the reason we need "separate nations!"

    We have a class of people--"good whites"--who are basically full of shit. They believe (or for some of the Jews just want to stick it to whitey) a lot of toxic anti-empirical nonsense (minoritarianism). But they personally either flee or operate in a milieu that insulates them from effects of the ideology that they advocate.

    These people need to eat their own dogfood. They need to live with the effects of the policies they advocate. It's call being responsible for your actions.

    In contrast, most conservatives have a more clear-eyed, more empirical take on both human nature--from sexual dimorphism on to race. Yet as middle or working class people, more likely to suffer the effects of elite minoritarian. They--include myself, though i'm well-to-do and reasonably well insulated--deserve what all people deserve--the right to live in their own communities, according to their own norms, values, culture.

    If you're healthy and under 50, the risk to your life from the virus is near 0. On a risk/reward basis there's no compelling reason to take the vaccine except to reduce your chances of infecting someone more vulnerable, which the vaccines might turn out to do. Nothing yells Whiteness like taking one for the team.

    While I am overwhelmingly white, I am also a member of an Indian tribe.

    In the American Indian community, there is a term "pretendian", for white people who suddenly claim to be Indian. Sometimes these are family legends; sometimes these are made up out of nothing.

    There are some situations in which one is not permitted to ask for proof. However, there are other situations in which proof may be asked for.

    If someone "looks" mixed white/Indian, that person is less likely to be challenged. A few decades ago I knew a young lady who was never challenged by organizations which required tribal membership because she "looked" part Indian. Supposedly she had a dream where it was revealed to her that she had Indian ancestry.

    So this has been going on for a long time.

    The policy of having people self report their ancestry was based on an archaic idea that no white person would EVER claim to be non-white because of all the discrimination they would face.

    But maybe 16-year-old blacks are much more likely to transmit the disease to other people.

    The real question is not who has the right to get the next vaccination so as to preserve their health, but in what order should people be vaccinated so as to prevent further spread of the disease in the most efficient manner.

    I don't have any particular solutions to offer, because obviously there is an offset that the more complicated you make the order of giving vaccinations, then more complicated this becomes to administer.

    Going simply by age is the simplest way as ages are verifiable and a date of birth entered into a computer can return a simple Boolean result of eligible or not eligible.

    As soon as you stop adding overrides to the age factor then it becomes increasingly complicated and difficult to verify the information.

    But really if somebody lies about their racial origin so as to get a vaccination earlier, at least that is one person who does not need to be vaccinated later, and no harm is done to the population at large.

    On the other hand if there was a significant problem in eligible people not being able to get vaccinations in timely fashion because of ineligible people queue jumping, there could be an issue.

    But medical practice has always been kind of fuzzy, and we are getting into the kind of level of argument similar to children being overseas on the date their mandatory vaccination is due, or the date of birth of somebody born overseas in Haiti is uncertain, or whether somebody had a prior vaccination for a particular condition when their medical records are not available.

    It's all a bit academic.

    Native American .4%
    Immigrant 4.7% (including an estimated under 5,000 “undocumented”)
    Multiracial 2%
    Total 8.5%

    So, a potential maximum number of 53,039 “special people.”

    Interestingly, many Twitter comments falsely assume that Vermont has maybe 10-100-200 blacks, when, in fact, the US Census says at least 8,700 blacks live in Vermont.

    As for “Now, we’re not going to get into the details of who is the holiest, whether it’s BIPOCs or transgenders.”
    “Vermont leads U.S. states with the highest rates of LGBT identification, at 5.3% and its LGBT population density is second in the U.S. only to the District of Columbia.”

    We don't HAVE blacks in New England. If you think Vermont doesn't have blacks you should see New Hampshire and Maine. The Atlantic coast between say, Nahant, Massachusetts, Salem Massachusetts (and, even Boston refuses to allow blacks to wreck Boston) on out to Bar Harbor, Maine and then West clear out to Augusta, Maine and further out to Lake Champlain, the landscape is completely and utterly White. Why? Because blacks want no part of the climate up here. Even the ditch diggers are Irish. It's Whiteopia, and there are many more guns per square mile than pre-Democrat Virginia. My fellow New England citizens don't cotton to the Negri in their midst. They tried to throw us some blacks but after seeing what happened to Lewiston, Maine (look it up for an example of a black invasion from Somalia), the rest of the region said no. Portland Maine, another Whiteopia, is busy making some recent sepia-hued immigrants to their city uncomfortable enough that they're leaving, again also besides the fact we don't like blacks, also because it's cold. Why plant the Sun People into Ice People regions in ostensibly Democrat districts? We don't want them here, they don't want the cold, so send them to Fairfax, Virginia, the new Democrat stronghold outside DC. It's warmer. Or Austin, Texas, or Atlanta, the new Wakanda, even more so. Somali immies vs. American blacks. Here? Blacks are on our got-no-time-for list. Keep em.

  27. The strongest argument that the plague isn’t real is the behavior of government. Open borders, encouraging surges, no testing or tracking of surgees, international and interstate travel, rallies, refusing to track people if they have the right politics, enjoying forbidden restaurants, banning medicine, and vaccines for like say a basketball team’s worth of people because that’s how vaccines work.

    The plague is real but everything else in your comment is basically accurate. I'm thinkin' now that the vaccines are the endgame: billions and millions to the right people, the creation of an even more extensive surveillance and control structure, and the Gatesean culling of the herd.

    On a trip last year to Vermont, I saw Black Lives Matter signs on the lawns of one out of every four homes and "Black Lives Matter" painted in giant letters on the road in front of every public school. So I guess Vermonters are fine with this, and considering that that blacks are only 1.4% of their population, it's not going to make a discernible difference anyway.

    WINDSOR, Vt. (WCAX) - The Mount Ascutney School Board has voted to fire the Windsor School’s principal following comments she made online about the Black Lives Matter movement.

    Tiffany Riley recently wrote on her personal Facebook page, “I firmly believe that Black Lives Matter, but I DO NOT agree with the coercive measures taken to get to this point.”

    She went on to write that she does not think people should be made to feel they have to choose the black race over the human race. “While I understand the urgency to feel compelled to advocate for black lives, what about our fellow law enforcement? What about all others who advocate for and demand equity for all?” Riley wrote.

    Board Chair Elizabeth Burrows sent out the announcement of Riley’s termination on Monday night but declined to comment further.

    A.M., here is a gem of an article that will help correct your faulty memory. It's the transcript of a 2018 story of the Brave Little State program featured on Vermont's NPR affiliate. "Why Are There So Many African-Americans Incarcerated In Vermont?"

    The story is l-o-n-g because the issue is so terribly very extremely massively complexly complicated. Fortunately, this isn't a case of upside-down journalism that requires a three-digit IQ to decipher. Instead, the answer turns out to be disarmingly simple: white racism! Yes, despite the goodness of the goodwhites of the Brave Little State, they fester in a toxic stew of implicit bias, structural racism, insensitivity, and cultural appropriation. And (even though you moved away), it turns out that some seemingly acceptable Vermonters are actually kulaks and wreckers. To illustrate these points, there are many tragic interviews, including ones of inmate Corey Jones and his Nice White Lady attorney. Corey landed in jail for dealing a trifling $40 worth of heroin. And it wasn't even his fault: three years earlier, Corey says somebody called him a bad word, so he had to fight them, which is how the cops' racial profiling started.

    And so on. Magic 94%-white Dirt just isn't magic enough, even when it's right on the Canadian border.

    Alternatively, vitamin D could be a factor, like all those scientists have been saying; and people who evolved in environments with a lot of sun (e.g. Africa, India) and whose bodies therefore don't absorb vitamin D from sunlight as easily, will therefore do worse from this virus (and perhaps all others) when they're far enough north (or south) that they don't get the year-round all-day sunlight that their body evolved to get.

    Maybe some free vitamin D supplementation would be a better idea than an experimental vaccine, idk im just spitballin

    Agree and would add the following points:

    1. Every word of CoronaFraud is, and has been, a lie.
    2. The mission has always been (drastic) population reduction, PARTICULARLY OF NON-WHITES .
    3. The methodology has been:
    a) massive psy-op
    b) the “vaccine”
    c) the “kill switch ” in the vaccine, or as a binary agent released later.
    3. Whatever else the Elites are, they are White (ish), they have no use for Proles or non-Whites.
    BTW, Gardasil was the first kill switch, it has sterilized maybe 20-25% of females under 30, again, skewed non-Whites, but TPTB found it too slow and got really ambitious. They probably couldn’t have believed the psy-op would succeed as well as it did ( I know I can’t) but here we are.

    Can you explain why an elite concerned with depopulation - particularly of non-whites! - should have overseen a (drastic) increase in population over the last few decades? (Particularly of non-whites...)

    Why did they invent vaccines in the first place, and supply them to Africans; why cure smallpox; why "feed the world"; why build factories in Asia; why send in UN peacekeepers; why discourage racism; in short, why improve the ability of the third-world to sustain life, if you're trying to depopulate the planet?

    Vermont's priority "special people":
    "Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC)"
    "English language learners and people in immigrant/refugee communities"

    Vermont Total Population: 623,989

    Black 1.4%
    Native American .4%
    Immigrant 4.7% (including an estimated under 5,000 “undocumented”)
    Multiracial 2%
    Total 8.5%

    So, a potential maximum number of 53,039 "special people."

    Interestingly, many Twitter comments falsely assume that Vermont has maybe 10-100-200 blacks, when, in fact, the US Census says at least 8,700 blacks live in Vermont.

    As for “Now, we’re not going to get into the details of who is the holiest, whether it’s BIPOCs or transgenders.”

    We don’t HAVE blacks in New England. If you think Vermont doesn’t have blacks you should see New Hampshire and Maine. The Atlantic coast between say, Nahant, Massachusetts, Salem Massachusetts (and, even Boston refuses to allow blacks to wreck Boston) on out to Bar Harbor, Maine and then West clear out to Augusta, Maine and further out to Lake Champlain, the landscape is completely and utterly White. Why? Because blacks want no part of the climate up here. Even the ditch diggers are Irish. It’s Whiteopia, and there are many more guns per square mile than pre-Democrat Virginia. My fellow New England citizens don’t cotton to the Negri in their midst. They tried to throw us some blacks but after seeing what happened to Lewiston, Maine (look it up for an example of a black invasion from Somalia), the rest of the region said no. Portland Maine, another Whiteopia, is busy making some recent sepia-hued immigrants to their city uncomfortable enough that they’re leaving, again also besides the fact we don’t like blacks, also because it’s cold. Why plant the Sun People into Ice People regions in ostensibly Democrat districts? We don’t want them here, they don’t want the cold, so send them to Fairfax, Virginia, the new Democrat stronghold outside DC. It’s warmer. Or Austin, Texas, or Atlanta, the new Wakanda, even more so.

    Sites that allow commenting probably work best if there are certified commenters, who can be regarded as reasonably certain not to make ad hominem attacks on other people, post-advertising spam, or make comments that are probably illegal in the relevant jurisdiction.

    Here's an example. In Britain it is illegal to post the name of somebody who makes an allegation of rape.

    Now, there was a trial a few years ago of an actor in the soap opera Coronation Street, in which it was alleged by the ex-wife that the actor had raped a 6-year-old girl.

    A few commenters in the UK expressed some puzzlement as to how the girl came to be sleeping under the same roof as the actor but nobody was allowed to reply in newspaper comments that she was his own daughter.

    Anyway when the trial took place medical evidence was presented that the girl, now a teenager, was still a virgin at the time of the trial, and the actor was found not guilty.

    However if I was to write what is written above in a British publication, I could be sent to prison.

    Let me ask you this - if People of Color were LESS affected by Covid, would you be OK with a policy to put them last in line?

    Replies: @Jonathan Mason

    But maybe 16-year-old blacks are much more likely to transmit the disease to other people.

    The real question is not who has the right to get the next vaccination so as to preserve their health, but in what order should people be vaccinated so as to prevent further spread of the disease in the most efficient manner.

    I don’t have any particular solutions to offer, because obviously there is an offset that the more complicated you make the order of giving vaccinations, then more complicated this becomes to administer.

    Going simply by age is the simplest way as ages are verifiable and a date of birth entered into a computer can return a simple Boolean result of eligible or not eligible.

    As soon as you stop adding overrides to the age factor then it becomes increasingly complicated and difficult to verify the information.

    But really if somebody lies about their racial origin so as to get a vaccination earlier, at least that is one person who does not need to be vaccinated later, and no harm is done to the population at large.

    On the other hand if there was a significant problem in eligible people not being able to get vaccinations in timely fashion because of ineligible people queue jumping, there could be an issue.

    But medical practice has always been kind of fuzzy, and we are getting into the kind of level of argument similar to children being overseas on the date their mandatory vaccination is due, or the date of birth of somebody born overseas in Haiti is uncertain, or whether somebody had a prior vaccination for a particular condition when their medical records are not available.

    The government loves being able to control access to vaccines - it becomes another political plum that they can hand out to their favorite supporters, which nowadays are alway PoCs. And you have to hire lots of bureaucrats to figure out who is Group 1 A and who is Group 1 B and so on and to administer the scheme. They should just vaccinate everyone in nursing homes and then let everyone else have the vaccine - whoever signs up for an appointment. Aucti0n off some appointment slots to the rich to help fund the trillions of $ this is all costing.

    In the Soviet Union, they couldn't understand how it was possible that the correct # of loaves of bread showed up in every city in the US every day without someone in the central government allocating the flour supplies correctly. Of course when they did this in the USSR, the correct amount of flour did NOT show up - sometimes there was too much but mostly there was not enough. (The USSR experienced a spat of "bad weather" from 1917 to 1989.) Soviet style central planning doesn't work for vaccines either.

    That is what a number of my Latin American friends have told me over the years, when they found out I had Native heritage. They said their families claimed to be 100% Spanish, but nobody believes it. Many of them appear to have noticeable Indian features.

    I knew a fellow from Peru who is now a fairly well known scientist while we were both in grad school. He looked pure Indian, but claimed to be Mestizo. Meaning, if he could claim a drop of white blood, he could be Mestizo. He was happy to think of me as Mestizo as well, since I had a drop of Indian blood with my white ancestry.

    An interesting thing -- supposedly there were as many Africans as Spanish who went to Mexico, for example. However, supposedly the black Mexicans pretty much all intermarried with the more numerous Indians, while Mexicans of Spanish descent were supposed to marry other Mexicans of Spanish descent.

    Some of my American friends who were mixed black and Indian claim that Benito Juarez, the first Indian president of Mexico, was really mixed black and Indian. I cannot find anything to verify this.

    The strongest argument that the plague isn't real is the behavior of government. Open borders, encouraging surges, no testing or tracking of surgees, international and interstate travel, rallies, refusing to track people if they have the right politics, enjoying forbidden restaurants, banning medicine, and vaccines for like say a basketball team's worth of people because that's how vaccines work.

    The plague is real but everything else in your comment is basically accurate.

    Here in Ecuador you are much more likely to find people who are of Indian descent claiming to be whiter than they really are.

    Replies: @Paleo Liberal

    That is what a number of my Latin American friends have told me over the years, when they found out I had Native heritage. They said their families claimed to be 100% Spanish, but nobody believes it. Many of them appear to have noticeable Indian features.

    I knew a fellow from Peru who is now a fairly well known scientist while we were both in grad school. He looked pure Indian, but claimed to be Mestizo. Meaning, if he could claim a drop of white blood, he could be Mestizo. He was happy to think of me as Mestizo as well, since I had a drop of Indian blood with my white ancestry.

    An interesting thing — supposedly there were as many Africans as Spanish who went to Mexico, for example. However, supposedly the black Mexicans pretty much all intermarried with the more numerous Indians, while Mexicans of Spanish descent were supposed to marry other Mexicans of Spanish descent.

    Some of my American friends who were mixed black and Indian claim that Benito Juarez, the first Indian president of Mexico, was really mixed black and Indian. I cannot find anything to verify this.

    But Vicente Guerrero, the Mexican president who ended slavery in Mexico in 1829, was certainly black. There were also two Mexican presidents in the early 20th Century who were known to have African blood.

    On a trip last year to Vermont, I saw Black Lives Matter signs on the lawns of one out of every four homes and "Black Lives Matter" painted in giant letters on the road in front of every public school. So I guess Vermonters are fine with this, and considering that that blacks are only 1.4% of their population, it's not going to make a discernible difference anyway.

    This essentially is the reason we need “separate nations!”

    We have a class of people–“good whites”–who are basically full of shit. They believe (or for some of the Jews just want to stick it to whitey) a lot of toxic anti-empirical nonsense (minoritarianism). But they personally either flee or operate in a milieu that insulates them from effects of the ideology that they advocate.

    These people need to eat their own dogfood. They need to live with the effects of the policies they advocate. It’s call being responsible for your actions.

    In contrast, most conservatives have a more clear-eyed, more empirical take on both human nature–from sexual dimorphism on to race. Yet as middle or working class people, more likely to suffer the effects of elite minoritarian. They–include myself, though i’m well-to-do and reasonably well insulated–deserve what all people deserve–the right to live in their own communities, according to their own norms, values, culture.

    Karl Denninger, yesterday:
    “The CDC Admits I Was Right
    Told you so. “An overwhelming majority of people who have been hospitalized, needed a ventilator or died from Covid-19 have been overweight or obese, the CDC said in a new study Monday. Among 148,494 adults who received a Covid-19 diagnosis during an emergency department or inpatient visit at 238 U.S. hospitals from March to December, 71,491 were hospitalized. Of those who were admitted, 27.8% were overweight and 50.2% were obese, according to the CDC report.“
    So, basically, if you’re not a fat-ass then your odds of getting hammered by Covid drop by 80%. Here’s what I said on April 9th of last year. “You have until fall folks. Yes, we have our lockdowns today, but if they don’t cut this bull**** out soon hospitals are going to start collapsing for lack of funding and supply chains will break in critical ways.“
    What did you do? You packed on 29 more lbs on average. And then winter came and people died. It is not my responsibility to “wear a masssssssssssk” because you intentionally ate yourself into a ****ing blob knowing ******n well that it might kill you — and in many cases it did.”

    CDC FastStats:
    “Obesity and Overweight in US
    Adults
    – Percent of adults aged 20 and over with obesity: 42.5% (2017-2018)
    – Percent of adults aged 20 and over with overweight, including obesity: 73.6% (2017-2018).”

    In other words, per CDC, COVID deaths are nearly identically distributed wrt BMI as is the general US population.

    Sites that allow commenting probably work best if there are certified commenters, who can be regarded as reasonably certain not to make ad hominem attacks on other people, post-advertising spam, or make comments that are probably illegal in the relevant jurisdiction.

    Here's an example. In Britain it is illegal to post the name of somebody who makes an allegation of rape.

    Now, there was a trial a few years ago of an actor in the soap opera Coronation Street, in which it was alleged by the ex-wife that the actor had raped a 6-year-old girl.

    A few commenters in the UK expressed some puzzlement as to how the girl came to be sleeping under the same roof as the actor but nobody was allowed to reply in newspaper comments that she was his own daughter.

    Anyway when the trial took place medical evidence was presented that the girl, now a teenager, was still a virgin at the time of the trial, and the actor was found not guilty.

    However if I was to write what is written above in a British publication, I could be sent to prison.

    So you can understand publications being wary about allowing unmodified publication of comments in that jurisdiction.

    You can Google reports of the trial if you want.

    But maybe 16-year-old blacks are much more likely to transmit the disease to other people.

    The real question is not who has the right to get the next vaccination so as to preserve their health, but in what order should people be vaccinated so as to prevent further spread of the disease in the most efficient manner.

    I don't have any particular solutions to offer, because obviously there is an offset that the more complicated you make the order of giving vaccinations, then more complicated this becomes to administer.

    Going simply by age is the simplest way as ages are verifiable and a date of birth entered into a computer can return a simple Boolean result of eligible or not eligible.

    As soon as you stop adding overrides to the age factor then it becomes increasingly complicated and difficult to verify the information.

    But really if somebody lies about their racial origin so as to get a vaccination earlier, at least that is one person who does not need to be vaccinated later, and no harm is done to the population at large.

    On the other hand if there was a significant problem in eligible people not being able to get vaccinations in timely fashion because of ineligible people queue jumping, there could be an issue.

    But medical practice has always been kind of fuzzy, and we are getting into the kind of level of argument similar to children being overseas on the date their mandatory vaccination is due, or the date of birth of somebody born overseas in Haiti is uncertain, or whether somebody had a prior vaccination for a particular condition when their medical records are not available.

    It's all a bit academic.

They should just vaccinate everyone in nursing homes and then let everyone else have the vaccine – whoever signs up for an appointment.

    There is probably always a lot going on behind the scenes when these decisions are made that is not discussed in public.

    I was just talking on WhatsApp this morning to one of my sisters, who is a retired nurse in England.

    She said that her area has been pretty badly hit by Covid-19 and that non-compliance was a considerable factor.

    I asked her to what she attributed that, and she said that there was a certain race who frequently went around in groups not using masks, not practicing social distancing, and who were also non-compliant with showing up for scheduled vaccinations.

    The race she was referring to were Pakistanis--as she lives within the Bradford, Yorkshire metropolitan area which has a huge Pakistani population.

    Now she could be talking biased nonsense, of course, but since her son--my nephew--is playing a leading role in the region in setting up and running vaccination centers and training people how to run them, I suspect that she may have some confidential inside information on the matter.

    But that is not an issue that you will see publicly discussed, not even in the Daily Mail. (You might read something about minorities being badly hit by the Covid-19.)

    I suspect that it is the same in the United States, that the information that is released to the public is very selective, and the reasoning behind it is not necessarily released for public discussion because it might be inflammatory.

    Yeah, Abenaki are the supposed Native Americans of Vermont, as well as elsewhere in New England and Canada.

    The thing about the Green Mountain State is that what makes it picturesque—rugged mountains—also makes not conducive to living off the land. Even today, with modern tech and farming equipment, it is very hard to get a living out of the poor soils there (if you can even find the soils among the rocks!). With Stone Age tech, forget it. You might get some small bands fishing and foraging in the border waters in summer, but Vermont is no place to spend the winter as a hunter-gatherer if you have a choice. White settlement didn't come to Vermont for great farmland opportunities so much as the chance to use water power from the slopes for milling and manufacturing (also rock quarrying). Anyway, the upshot of this is that Vermont had always considered itself relatively free of the Original Sin of displacing Indians, since there were no Indian settlements worth mentioning there.

    Very recently, by which I mean the last couple of decades, there spontaneously sprang up an Abenaki nativist movement in Vermont, who claimed to be the descendants of Indian bands who had somehow gone undetected for over two centuries since Vermont's statehood, but were now coming forward coincidentally as it became fashionable and profitable to be "Native American". As mentioned, of these I saw, they looked like regular white people on a larp to me, but what do I know? Anyhow, I don't think they ever got Federally recognized as an official Indian Tribe, but some of them managed to get the floor-to-ceiling libs in the Vermont legislature to vote them some kind of benefits.

    Looking at the Abenaki page in Wiki just now, I see that the Canadian Abenaki seem to have made the same observations I did and are accusing the Vermont Abenaki of not being real Indians. Also, if you read the History section of that page, you'll notice it all occurred in places other than Vermont. So that tends to confirm my suspicion that it's mostly Elizabeth Warren-types on a grift.

I mean, what are the chances, right?

    Needless to say, a young white woman was involved as a catalyst, though she was not shot and was not charged (if you don't count venereal disease).

    But maybe 16-year-old blacks are much more likely to transmit the disease to other people.

    The real question is not who has the right to get the next vaccination so as to preserve their health, but in what order should people be vaccinated so as to prevent further spread of the disease in the most efficient manner.

    I don't have any particular solutions to offer, because obviously there is an offset that the more complicated you make the order of giving vaccinations, then more complicated this becomes to administer.

    Going simply by age is the simplest way as ages are verifiable and a date of birth entered into a computer can return a simple Boolean result of eligible or not eligible.

    As soon as you stop adding overrides to the age factor then it becomes increasingly complicated and difficult to verify the information.

    But really if somebody lies about their racial origin so as to get a vaccination earlier, at least that is one person who does not need to be vaccinated later, and no harm is done to the population at large.

    On the other hand if there was a significant problem in eligible people not being able to get vaccinations in timely fashion because of ineligible people queue jumping, there could be an issue.

    But medical practice has always been kind of fuzzy, and we are getting into the kind of level of argument similar to children being overseas on the date their mandatory vaccination is due, or the date of birth of somebody born overseas in Haiti is uncertain, or whether somebody had a prior vaccination for a particular condition when their medical records are not available.

    It's all a bit academic.

    Lol yeah, in the small Vermont town (but is there any other kind?) I was in, the first black guy in town shot the second black guy in town—or maybe it was the second black guy who shot the first black guy, I forget—but whatever the case, the gun crime rate went from zero to Zimbabwe as soon as the first two black guys showed up, then went from Zimbabwe back to zero as soon as they left: one on a stretcher, the other in a police cruiser. I mean, what are the chances, right?

    Needless to say, a young white woman was involved as a catalyst, though she was not shot and was not charged (if you don't count venereal disease).

Why? Because blacks want no part of the climate up here. Even the ditch diggers are Irish. It's Whiteopia, and there are many more guns per square mile than pre-Democrat Virginia. My fellow New England citizens don't cotton to the Negri in their midst. They tried to throw us some blacks but after seeing what happened to Lewiston, Maine (look it up for an example of a black invasion from Somalia), the rest of the region said no. Portland Maine, another Whiteopia, is busy making some recent sepia-hued immigrants to their city uncomfortable enough that they're leaving, again also besides the fact we don't like blacks, also because it's cold. Why plant the Sun People into Ice People regions in ostensibly Democrat districts? We don't want them here, they don't want the cold, so send them to Fairfax, Virginia, the new Democrat stronghold outside DC. It's warmer. Or Austin, Texas, or Atlanta, the new Wakanda, even more so.

    But Biden-Harris infrastructure spending will help eliminate some of these "inequities" (and maybe credited as the down payment on reparations):


    That includes $20 billion to “reconnect” communities of color to economic opportunity, like the Black residents still living in the interstate’s shadow.

    In addition to dedicated funding for neighborhoods split or splintered by past infrastructure projects, the proposal also includes money for the replacement of lead water pipes that have harmed Black children in cities like Flint, Mich.; the cleanup of environmental hazards that have plagued Hispanic neighborhoods and tribal communities; worker training that would target underserved groups; and funds for home health aides, who are largely women of color.

    The biggest single piece of the plan’s racial equity efforts is not a transportation or environmental project, but a $400 billion investment in in-home care for older and disabled Americans. It would lift the wages of care workers, who are predominantly low-paid, female and not white.

    “It’s the first jobs program that is focused primarily on work done by women of color,” said Mary Kay Henry, the president of the Service Employees International Union. “It’s going to transform Black, brown and Asian lives, and entire communities.”

    White House officials say the $100 billion the plan allocates to improve and build out broadband internet will disproportionately help Black and Latino families, who have less access to affordable broadband than white families do.

    Half of the $40 billion the plan would spend to upgrade research labs across the country would be reserved for colleges and universities that historically serve Black and other students of color.

And you have to hire lots of bureaucrats to figure out who is Group 1 A and who is Group 1 B and so on and to administer the scheme. They should just vaccinate everyone in nursing homes and then let everyone else have the vaccine - whoever signs up for an appointment. Aucti0n off some appointment slots to the rich to help fund the trillions of $ this is all costing.

    In the Soviet Union, they couldn't understand how it was possible that the correct # of loaves of bread showed up in every city in the US every day without someone in the central government allocating the flour supplies correctly. Of course when they did this in the USSR, the correct amount of flour did NOT show up - sometimes there was too much but mostly there was not enough. (The USSR experienced a spat of "bad weather" from 1917 to 1989.) Soviet style central planning doesn't work for vaccines either.

    There is probably always a lot going on behind the scenes when these decisions are made that is not discussed in public.

    I was just talking on WhatsApp this morning to one of my sisters, who is a retired nurse in England.

    She said that her area has been pretty badly hit by Covid-19 and that non-compliance was a considerable factor.

    I asked her to what she attributed that, and she said that there was a certain race who frequently went around in groups not using masks, not practicing social distancing, and who were also non-compliant with showing up for scheduled vaccinations.

    The race she was referring to were Pakistanis–as she lives within the Bradford, Yorkshire metropolitan area which has a huge Pakistani population.

    Now she could be talking biased nonsense, of course, but since her son–my nephew–is playing a leading role in the region in setting up and running vaccination centers and training people how to run them, I suspect that she may have some confidential inside information on the matter.

    But that is not an issue that you will see publicly discussed, not even in the Daily Mail. (You might read something about minorities being badly hit by the Covid-19.)

    I suspect that it is the same in the United States, that the information that is released to the public is very selective, and the reasoning behind it is not necessarily released for public discussion because it might be inflammatory.

  130. Yeah, but it is simply too complicated from an administrative point of view to make the fine points of this type and go back to later to vaccinate the people who didn’t get vaccinated to first time around because they worked in an administrative building or from home, or have been out sick with a broken leg, or having a baby, or whatever.

    In the end everybody needs to get vaccinated, so at least your brother is one person who will not need to be vaccinated in the future and is one more person who is much less likely to pass the virus to you.

    It does make sense to vaccinate the older people and health caregivers first, both to cut the number of deaths and to slow down the spread of the epidemic, but in a mass program involving literally hundreds of millions of people in the US and billions worldwide, you can only have an approximate rule of thumb.

    Meaning that blacks are fat and have diabetes. But this virus is disproportionately targeting Indians (and similar) in the UK. Are they notably unhealthy? The American white population is pretty fat and unhealthy too. Is the gap between black and white mortality precisely matching the pre-existing gap between black and white health?

    Alternatively, vitamin D could be a factor, like all those scientists have been saying; and people who evolved in environments with a lot of sun (e.g. Africa, India) and whose bodies therefore don’t absorb vitamin D from sunlight as easily, will therefore do worse from this virus (and perhaps all others) when they’re far enough north (or south) that they don’t get the year-round all-day sunlight that their body evolved to get.

    Agree and would add the following points:

    1. Every word of CoronaFraud is, and has been, a lie.
    2. The mission has always been (drastic) population reduction, PARTICULARLY OF NON-WHITES .
    3. The methodology has been:
    a) massive psy-op
    b) the "vaccine"
    c) the "kill switch " in the vaccine, or as a binary agent released later.
    3. Whatever else the Elites are, they are White (ish), they have no use for Proles or non-Whites.
    BTW, Gardasil was the first kill switch, it has sterilized maybe 20-25% of females under 30, again, skewed non-Whites, but TPTB found it too slow and got really ambitious. They probably couldn't have believed the psy-op would succeed as well as it did ( I know I can't) but here we are.

    Can you explain why an elite concerned with depopulation – particularly of non-whites! – should have overseen a (drastic) increase in population over the last few decades? (Particularly of non-whites…)

    Why did they invent vaccines in the first place, and supply them to Africans; why cure smallpox; why “feed the world”; why build factories in Asia; why send in UN peacekeepers; why discourage racism; in short, why improve the ability of the third-world to sustain life, if you’re trying to depopulate the planet?

    Yeah, Abenaki are the supposed Native Americans of Vermont, as well as elsewhere in New England and Canada.

    The thing about the Green Mountain State is that what makes it picturesque—rugged mountains—also makes not conducive to living off the land. Even today, with modern tech and farming equipment, it is very hard to get a living out of the poor soils there (if you can even find the soils among the rocks!). With Stone Age tech, forget it. You might get some small bands fishing and foraging in the border waters in summer, but Vermont is no place to spend the winter as a hunter-gatherer if you have a choice. White settlement didn’t come to Vermont for great farmland opportunities so much as the chance to use water power from the slopes for milling and manufacturing (also rock quarrying). Anyway, the upshot of this is that Vermont had always considered itself relatively free of the Original Sin of displacing Indians, since there were no Indian settlements worth mentioning there.

    Very recently, by which I mean the last couple of decades, there spontaneously sprang up an Abenaki nativist movement in Vermont, who claimed to be the descendants of Indian bands who had somehow gone undetected for over two centuries since Vermont’s statehood, but were now coming forward coincidentally as it became fashionable and profitable to be “Native American”. As mentioned, of these I saw, they looked like regular white people on a larp to me, but what do I know? Anyhow, I don’t think they ever got Federally recognized as an official Indian Tribe, but some of them managed to get the floor-to-ceiling libs in the Vermont legislature to vote them some kind of benefits.

    Looking at the Abenaki page in Wiki just now, I see that the Canadian Abenaki seem to have made the same observations I did and are accusing the Vermont Abenaki of not being real Indians. Also, if you read the History section of that page, you’ll notice it all occurred in places other than Vermont. So that tends to confirm my suspicion that it’s mostly Elizabeth Warren-types on a grift.

    Anyway the same thing has been happening here. Indians as young as 16 get jabs along with non-Indian septuagenarians living in the same neighbourhood. No questions asked about whether their individual circumstances contribute to higher risk (which for most Indians they certainly do).

    Meaning that blacks are fat and have diabetes. But this virus is disproportionately targeting Indians (and similar) in the UK. Are they notably unhealthy? The American white population is pretty fat and unhealthy too. Is the gap between black and white mortality precisely matching the pre-existing gap between black and white health?

    Alternatively, vitamin D could be a factor, like all those scientists have been saying; and people who evolved in environments with a lot of sun (e.g. Africa, India) and whose bodies therefore don't absorb vitamin D from sunlight as easily, will therefore do worse from this virus (and perhaps all others) when they're far enough north (or south) that they don't get the year-round all-day sunlight that their body evolved to get.

    Maybe some free vitamin D supplementation would be a better idea than an experimental vaccine, idk im just spitballin

    Africans in Africa are unscathed, Africans in America are not. They have been disproportionately affected by the virus. Ergo, if the vaccine is an effective and necessary public health intervention (it isn't), and if it makes sense to target those most affected or at risk, then it should be old people and people with cystic fibrosis etc up first, and then young people who have dark skin or are fat.

    You're still a smart guy, but now you are making a false statement about vaccine priorities. Why?

    Even the ethics-challenged members of the CDC's ethics committee conceded that elderly nursing home residents ought to be a higher priority than 16-year-old blacks BIPOCs.

    If you're following what Karl Denninger is saying about these vaccines, you will realize Vermont is doing white people a favor.

    Replies: @Franz, @Bill Jones, @Almost Missouri, @Jim Bob Lassiter, @theMann, @AnotherDad, @Anon, @Anon

    Denninger’s is by far the most reasonable objection to the vaccines I’ve heard so far. I’ve gotten really irritated with cranks making up absurd claims about what these vaccines do and what the risks are. Lying makes us indistinguishable from leftists.

    Still, I expect that they will confer sterilizing immunity for four reasons:

    1) Neutralizing antibodies have been isolated from people who took the vaccines (Moderna for example https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2022483)

    2) A lot of vaccines that do not confer sterilizing immunity are made from inactivated pathogens (using polio as an example, viral particles whose surface proteins have been denatured by formalin.) The copy of the spike protein your body produces with the Pfizer & Moderna vaccines’ mRNA hasn’t been denatured like this.

    3) Since the spike protein is the only epitope for which the mRNA vaccines immunize us, all antibodies produced with the help of the vaccine will bind to the spike protein and *likely* lower its binding affinity for the ACE2 receptor (thereby reducing its ability to replicate in the body). Proteins like the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein rely on a combination of high binding affinity & high binding specificity, so they do not like to have their conformation changed — it’s like smashing a key with a hammer before inserting it into a lock. This is really just the biochem that explains 1).

    4) Vaccine patients (Pfizer in this study) do indeed show lower viral load after subsequent infection: “…these Ct differences represent a decrease of 2.8–4.5-fold in viral load in vaccinated individuals.” Bear in mind that this is subject to range restriction, since the vaccinated and nonvaccinated people here had both tested positive for SARS-CoV-2.

    https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-021-01316-7

    As for the “experts” and the media telling us that we don’t know if the vaccines confer sterilizing immunity: on some level they’re right — more research should absolutely be done — but I think the main thing they’re doing here is virtue signaling and fearmongering. Everything we DO know about this gives us reasons for optimism.

    All this being the case, I think I agree with Denninger in large part: the risks were large enough that it should’ve been addressed more clearly and earlier, and therefore these studies should have been done more thoroughly and earlier. And I hope to heaven that the ongoing research finds what I think it will.

    Biomedical research re: Covid moves a lot faster than usual… but it’s still too slow.
