I often write about ordinary people and the banal, because each situation is a complex allegory, if not an intriguing painting, and no one is uninteresting. Plus, normalcy calms.

When you smell smoke, however, it might be wise to stop waxing about fried chicken, say, and see where the flames are coming from. In case you haven’t noticed, our world is burning.

It all starts with Covid. Covid locks you in, freezes your economy, destroys your business, wrecks your mental health, strains your relationships, drains your savings, empties your stores, disfigures your society, conditions you to be unnatural and, now, if you don’t agree to be vaccinated, threatens to isolate you (even further) and starve you to death, as charmingly decreed by that Olympus of human rights, Noam Chomsky, plus a host of others.

Never a fan, I find Chomsky’s prose devoid of sparks, such as is routine in Orwell, but maybe I’m just thick. In a Guardian piece, “Conscience of a nation,” Maya Jaggi swoons, “Chomsky ranks with Marx, Shakespeare and the Bible as one of the 10 most quoted sources in the humanities—and is the only writer among them still alive.”

In his 1967 essay, “The Responsibility of Intellectuals,” Chomsky succinctly declares, “Intellectuals are in a position to expose the lies of governments, to analyze actions according to their causes and motives and often hidden intentions.”

In his 2002 essay, “Reflections on 9-11,” Chomsky points out that “despite what must be the most intensive international intelligence investigation in history, evidence about the perpetrators of 9-11 has been hard to find.” And yet, “Nevertheless, despite the thin evidence, the initial conclusion about 9-11 is presumably correct.”

Notice how the deft linguist went from “hard to find” to “thin,” but there ain’t none, Noam! From Building 7 to Betty Ong, none of this story makes sense. Still, Chomsky sticks to his evidence-free conclusion, so regarding 9/11, an event that has changed our entire world, there are no governmental lies to unearth.

Now with Covid, an even greater 9-11, America’s most celebrated public intellectual is, again, trusting the worst science.

In his 9-11 essay, Chomsky does state that the U.S. and other governments would seize “upon 9-11 as a window of opportunity to institute or escalate harsh and repressive programs.” Plus, “Israel recognized that it would be able to crush Palestinians even more brutally, with even firmer U.S. support.”

A crisis, then, is a great opportunity to institute your evil plan, but why wait for cave dwellers to knock down three skyscrapers and puncture a hole in the Pentagon?! Just do it yourselves. Which brings us to Covid.

A key aim for the planners of 9/11 and Covid is the normalization of repressive measures. The first brought us an increased surveillance state, prison or even death without charge, the no-fly list and a nebulous definition of “terrorist.”

The second subjects us to, above all, a forced vaccination which may maim or kill, and, for those who survive, a passport that’s needed to do anything, shop, go to school, travel or just stroll down the street.

In constant fear of having your passport deactivated, you must obey each new diktat, no matter how absurd. (A core feature of totalitarianism is its relentless absurdity.)

Like I’ve said several times before, repressive systems learn from each other, so the West’s CommonPass or Green Passport, whatever they want to call it, is clearly modeled after China’s social credit system. It’s all about having total control of your life.

On 9/20/21, Paul Craig Roberts published a 2,200 word article at Unz that was never featured, “Conquered by a Fake Pandemic, We Can Kiss America Good-Bye.” It begins:

How obvious does it have to be before even insouciant Americans realize that there is something seriously wrong about the Covid vaccination program?

One would think we are already past that point even for the mentally-challenged.

To dismiss concerns about the Covid “vaccines” is to be retarded, Roberts is saying.

On 8/15/21, however, Ron Unz had written:

Beginning late last year, several of our regular columnists became vocal anti-vaxxers with regard to the new Covid vaccines, and as a result our website was swarmed by their zealous adherents, who soon began pushing their determined message on entirely unrelated threads. This greatly irritated me, and I made increasing efforts to drive them away. This is not an anti-vaxx webzine, and I was concerned that it might become perceived as such.

I didn’t know or care anything about the vaxx issue one way or the other, and was disturbed that so many seemingly rational people had suddenly become obsessed by that topic.

It’s irrational, then, to be “obsessed” with the Covid vaccines, according to Unz.

Having written two articles about the Covid “vaccines,” I’d say that, like most of us, I didn’t want to deal with vaxx at all, except that vaxx has become an unavoidable obstacle and even threat in my life. We have no choice but to be “obsessed” with vaxx.

I must admit to being rather startled by what Ron Unz said to Mike Whitney in an interview, on 8/1/21:

I tend not to be overly focused on constitutional or ideological questions. One way of looking at it is that America has certainly suffered far more Covid deaths during a twelve-month period than American servicemen died during the four years of World War II, perhaps even more than twice as many, and virtually none of those latter casualties were on the civilian home front. During time of war, it’s pretty typical for the government to suspend various freedoms, and if we consider the Covid epidemic in that light, the behavior of the government starts to seem less unreasonable.

So questioning the Covid “vaccines” is irrational, but the government’s suspension of nearly all our freedoms to supposedly fight Covid is not so unreasonable. Ron has shifted his stance on lockdowns, however, so maybe he’ll rethink the death jabs and its evil enforcement.

Ron Unz has written extensively about Covid as an American bioweapon aimed at China, so if we agree with Ron, and I do, isn’t it likely that Covid was also created by this criminal government to muzzle and strait jacket the home front?

Worse, it’s being deployed as a political, economic and biological weapon against as much of humanity as possible. Of course, Americans are also being culled.

There are too many of us, the elites have been saying for decades. This long-looted planet must be saved, at least for their superyachts and Learjets.

Useless eaters be gone!

  1. I was reluctant at first to take any of the three ‘vaccines’, because I had read the medical literature, which had indicated that people with autoimmune diseases were excluded from the minimal trials which had been done in the ten or so months between the development of the vaccines and their ‘conditional use’. As that literature suggested caution for those with autoimmune diseases, and since I had had a rather nasty case of one when I was in my 20s, I decided to wait.

    Things did not get much better, when I started examining the usual process of approval for new vaccines, which USED to be from ten to fifteen years. I am old enough to remember the problems with simian viruses entering into the human population through the early Salk-Sabin polio vaccines, which were insufficiently tested, as well as the tragedy of thalidomide, which also was insufficiently tested. I decided to wait a bit longer.

    I decided to start looking at how the vaccines worked, and found that all of them in the U.S. were based upon cellular production of the spike protein of the virus. And then I saw the report from the Salk Institute that that same spike protein was an independent CAUSE of the cellular damage which Covid-19 caused. I was assured in that article that the spike protein in the vaccines couldn’t possibly be the cause of cellular damage, because the spike protein was ‘locked’ by molecular ‘trimers’ into a ‘safe’ formation, and that the vaccine wouldn’t travel from its IM site in the upper shoulder. I decided to be cautious, though, and waited a bit longer.

    Good thing, too, because I started reading in the medical literature that there were reports that the vaccine COULD travel through the circulatory system, particularly when those injecting it did not engage in safe injection processes, including aspirating, or drawing back the plunger, before injection. I also read, in the same medical literature, that the molecular ‘trimers’ which kept the vaccine’s spike protein in a ‘safe’ formation, and which kept it affixed to the surface of infected cells, was ‘inherently unstable’, and apt to degrade in environments such as blood serum.

    And now I’m hearing that the vaccines do not prevent infection when exposed to later mutations of the virus. I’m also hearing reports that hospital ERs are filling with patients with unknown respiratory, abdominal, neurological, or other diseases.

    I just guess that I will wait a bit longer, until I see the results of the Stage III trials in process, where three quarters of the U.S. population have been inoculated with the vaccines.

    But hey, I’m sure that everything will turn out okay.

    Yeah. Sure.

  2. Man, what a great treat here at the TUR, once again!

    This is Linh at his best, punching away at the Covid bullshit. No, it’s not a travelogue complete with slides, it’s another of Linh’s socio-political offerings, which I find just as delicious, albeit in another way entirely.

    Linh asking serious Covid questions, like Mike Whitney does? And asking some interesting questions about dear Ron’s own previous comments he has made here on his own website, as well? And Ron allowing everything, without any interference?

    Damn! That’s why I come here everyday: freedom of speech and thought!

    And I’m sure as shit going to enjoy every minute of it while we still can at least here at Unz…….

  3. KenR says:

    I do agree that sinister forces are at work. And also with Ron’s great work on the bioweapon origins of the virus.

    The bewildering thing is why, by whose direction exactly, and to what end? Some blame it on greed, others the USA’s neurotic insecurity right now, others the Great Reset by the globalists, and so on. Pick your poison or mix ’em up together.

    They all seem rather insufficient even together when faced with the incredible magnitude of the deeds unfolding upon us all globally, tho. This is one crazy way of doing things, it has that that mad genius quality of a Bond villain to it. A fake pulp fiction aura.

    So I can only look for clues and let them guide me. Something powerful and sinister is afoot, indeed tho. Look at the said-to-be very reliable reports that upwards of 200 or so Congresscritters, family and staffers of Capitol Hill in Washington, from both sides of the aile, have been treated for COVID with the therapeutic protocols of America’s Front Line Doctors. That tells you that *they know* about the vaccines. So it’s not a matter of convincing them nor explaining to them what is truly going on. They already know the score.

    But they cannot or will not do anything about it. That means some greater force they fear is runing the show. It *IS* there, and it’s a sinister dangerous force.

  4. Biff says:

    I think the science is pretty much on the side of not being able to vax your way out of a COVID pandemic(the virus mutates), and it’s really going to end up as an endemic, and most importantly is the fact that the unvaccinated are not a danger to anyone!, but maybe themselves if they are comprised(vaxed people can still get, and carry the disease).

    So what’s behind the unrealistic push the get everyone vaccinated? Money? Ideological purges? Authoritarian control? Sadistic tendencies? Gay pride? Gambling habits? Agoraphobia?

  5. TG says:

    Hmm… a point that people seem to miss, is the utter arbitrariness of the new COVID vaccine mandates.

    Much has been made of a past mandate in Cambridge, Mass, for every adult to get vaccinated to combat smallpox. The point here is that, the issue was public health, so EVERY adult had to be vaccinated.

    Now, we are told that only working-class citizens and permanent residents need to get vaccinated – and not only is this a legal requirement, it’s a moral requirement!

    And yet… the super rich don’t have any mandates. Members of congress and their staffs don’t have any mandates. Employees have mandates, but employers and business owners don’t. Illegal immigrants being resettled across the nation by the million don’t have any requirements in order to access free medical care or room and board. And not only no legal mandate – no MORAL mandate either. How did that happen?

    I’m not an “anti-vaxxer.” but the idea that working class citizens somehow can transmit this virus and it’s the end of the world if they don’t get vaccinated, and yet all these other exempted classes don’t, is absurd. Clearly this has noting to do with public health – it’s an exercise in arbitrary power against the working class.

    I don’t know why the arbitrariness of the mandate is not getting more attention, but it should.

  6. Charles says:

    Linh’s essay calls attention to a peculiar fact – a person who we know is exceptionally bright can also profess an opinion which seems contradictory to their high intelligence. It is without doubt a fact that Ron Unz is smarter than I am (for obvious reasons I won’t offer the proofs), but to me it’s strange that the same man who has authored so many brilliant articles can believe the government is acting in good faith as regards the “vaccines”. I’m not bothered that he has a different opinion, I just think it’s interesting.

    I just guess that I will wait a bit longer, until I see the results of the Stage III trials in process, where three quarters of the U.S. population have been inoculated with the vaccines.

    That strategy – waiting – is eminently sensible, for those in a position to actually do so.

    Unfortunately, with the bulk of the political and corporate classes across the Western world having sold their souls to Satan and the Club of Rome, the option of waiting is becoming less available to the teeming masses of common folk as Klaus Schwab’s Great Reset is forcefully rammed down our collective throats.

    For increasing numbers of beaten-down citizens, waiting is not so easy if you want to earn a living, pay your bills, keep a roof over your head or just get enough food to survive from one day to the next.

    Trust me, I know – we’re seeing the World Economic Forum’s touchy-feely goodness up close and personal down here in Melbourne, Victoria, where the health-giving benefits of the Corona Chan “vaccines” and never-ending “booster shots” are being imposed with an iron fist by full-term abortionist Dictator Dan (with the full collusion of the Australian Federal Government led by God-bothering closet Satanist PM Morrison) as he resurrects the Fourth Reich – Australian style!

    https://www.rebelnews.com/kill_dans_bill

    Maybe some of us can wait it out – to see just what the “vaccines” are really doing to the supposedly “vaccinated” – by hiding out in an attic somewhere for a few years.

    That seems less likely when we already have reports of the Australian Army now training to go door-to-door to drag people out into the streets to forcefully inject them with experimental gene therapies, and hunt down anyone who tries to escape

    Perhaps, given his cultural heritage and undisputed historical knowledge, Mr. Unz might be able to relate to these developments on a personal level.

  9. @Mustapha Mond

    Agree. This a short and powerful article that shows Linh at his best exposing the phoneys like Chomsky and giving due credit for the braves like Paul Craig Roberts whose great intellectual contribution is bound to get the honours of the unknown soldier amidst an insouciant, convenience seeking population that could not care less for the truth.

    I look forward to Linh’s interviews with American farmers who are being squeezed out of business by failing to get their seeds because of the Covid induced supply chain disruptions. It looks like famine is the new weapon of the elites against the masses. For more on this hideous development, open the link below:

  10. Polemos says:

    I found and still find it peculiar that Ron will argue that the virus originally was a bioweapon and released in multiple places and different times but stops himself (/won’t engage in crimethink) from engaging in conversation about the vaxxines: if someone used a bioweapon and we have not seen them found, captured, thwarted, then presumably they’re still out there, right?

    And they’re most likely still in possession of coronavirus weapons, right?
    And they’re still able to release them, clandestine and in specific areas, especially after modifying them to have specific effects on specific antibodies generated by specific vaxxines, right?
    And different nation-states have excluded certain vaxxines from their populations, right?
    And so different nation-states or coalitions of nation-states, perhaps engaged in covert wars with other nation-states or coalitions of nation-states, will have different antibodies in their mass of populations, right?
    And so wouldn’t this mean that with the right kind of deployment, you could release or threaten to release a more devastating bioweapon targeting a nation-state or coalition of nation-states, holding hostage masses of people without them ever knowing it, turning all their anger and their frustation and misery towards their nation-state when the real enemy is covert, won’t be found, because the nation-state or coalition of nation-states won’t make it known what’s going on, not without making it clear that they are therefore responsible for endangering all those people they’ve forced to a most precarious life?
    Wouldn’t that actually drive all of those people to actual outright insanity, full spectrum instability that no one, not even the most dedicated D-Wave 2000 Qbit system sitting in their most elegant web, will be able to control?

    Or not. It’s a speculative kind of thought train. Lots of assumptions.

    But, still: if it’s a weapon, the ones who released it, are they still out there? Are they still interested in completing their objectives? Are they still fighting the Long War? Won’t they be interested in seeing how their weapon interacts with the vaxxines, and vice versa, won’t the vaxxine makers who’ve realized the weapons are out there want to know how their vaxxines interact with the weapons —the more successful at prevention and protection will be much more highly prized in the next world, the one where we are now openly using bioweapons against one another, won’t they?

  12. Dumbo says:

    [Ron Unz] One way of looking at it is that America has certainly suffered far more Covid deaths during a twelve-month period than American servicemen died during the four years of World War II,

    Ron’s comparison is stupid, because soldiers were young men in their 20s, while the median age of Covid deaths is 82 years old, and usually people who had other pathologies.

    It also shows the typical American (Jewish?) solipsism, because millions of European civilians died in that war (many bombed by those same American soldiers), but Ron is only concerned about American lives.

    Covid is a bad flu, but it does not justify the removal of basic liberties, nor the economic destruction, not the (in practice) mandatory untested vaccines, even for small children who are basically immune to the disease (I know quite a few people who had corona by now, in the adults symptoms ranged from mild to moderate, and one serious, but no children I know had even a mild symptom).

    It’s quite clear that there is another agenda behind “vaccines” and “vaccine passports” than “our health”. After all, they don’t care that we gorge ourselves with fast food or get contaminated with glyphosate. And the “vaccine passports” don’t even do anything, so it’s just about normalizing the idea of mandatory jabs, and controls to go anywhere.

    Ron’s stance on all this really surprises me, as he’s certainly not a dumb or misinformed person. Perhaps he’s like Chomsky, in a way.

  13. Dumbo says:

    Linh, I hear you are in Namibia now, so while an anti-vaxx rant is good and needed, it would be nice to hear a bit more about life in that little-known country. Can’t you go to pubs and socialize with locals, or do they have “vaccine passports” even there?

    @Biff

    Even if you follow mainstream virus science, Science says that, being a coronavirus, it’s going to be like the flu – mutating every year, so it will have peaks every year usually in Winter, and you’ll need a new vaccine every year to catch up. But mostly old people will die, just like the flu. As for children, more children die every year from regular flu than any has had even moderate symptoms of Covid.

    The difference is, with normal flu, you didn’t need to show a vaccine passport every time you wanted to have a coffee somewhere. Nor you had the demonization of the “unvaccinated” as if they had a contagious disease already, or were evil.

    So, there is nothing that special about Covid – what’s “special” is the way in which governments decided to “fight the pandemic”, or rather, use the pandemic as an excuse to impose controls and mandatory jabs and so on.

    The “fight against the pandemic” killed and will kill more people than Covid ever did.

  15. Even the inventor of this technology said you cannot vaccinate your way out of this pandemic. And since vaccinated people can spread the disease as much as the unvaccinated the mandates make no sense until you consider the profits for big pharma. Also considering even the unvaccinated have less than one percent chance of ending up in a hospital after contacting covid all of this mandating and other measures are pointless except they point to something that smells to high heaven. I’d love to see Fauci brought down, what a liar. Soon we’ll have to rename the country the United States of Pfizer because they seem to be calling all the shots. No pun intended. The MSM continues to lie for Pfizer regarding the safety of the jab. It’s nothing less than cold blooded murder if people believe these plastic coated mush brained bobble heads that announce the “news”. Considering the poor track record of the jab I continue to take my chances without it. And fuck the chicken shit jerks that don’t like it. Mostly centrist shit-libs who support every war if it’s being conducted by one of their own. Liberal hypocrisy is legendary as can be seen with the shit-lib reaction to government mandates and the amount of their hate and bile aimed at people who are no threat to them at all, all the while claiming they are following the science. What a joke. Paul Craig Roberts should be featured much more than he is as he has published much useful information with valuable links. And Linh Dinh is right when he says we have no choice but to be obsessed with this covid pandemic with the government making everything worse than it has to be. That’s what the government is for, to make your life miserable. When my house burned to the ground in a wildfire the county and city governments came after me with hammer and tongs. I was threatened with legal action unless I jumped through all their hoops. This on top of losing everything, not knowing what I was going to do, had nowhere to stay, had my cat with me in my car and I could go on.

    p.s. Mr. Unz’s “rogue element” theory fails to explain the scale and absurdity of the lockdowns and medical dictatorship galloping at us all. If the perpetrators of an intentional release of a engineered bioweapon were “rogue” they would not have the steady support of the mass media, the US military, corporations and all the regulatory agencies doing their bidding — not to mention most of the other countries around the world — as appears to be the case. Something else very big is going on. This cannot be about public health let alone the mischief of a few rascal neocons.

    Event 201 from October 2019 and/or the June 2019 David Goldberg expose of Project Zyphr are a better fit more worth examining rather than speculating about the connection of sick chickens in China.

    @KenR

    The bewildering thing is why, by whose direction exactly, and to what end?

    It’s not intended to go in any direction. The reasons for this current episode are economic fragility, technological deficiencies, incompetence, and greed, the usual weaknesses of a declining civilization:

    (1) Deficit economies in the West could not pull off a China on this one. They could not enforce effective, short-term, strict social isolation over large regions because the governments of most western countries, highly indebted as they are, cannot afford to stop the flow of taxation income (in the USA, paying the interest on debt is the 5th largest item in the federal budget, and climbing up to the top position; the debt situation is worse in many EU countries).
    (2) Western polities do not have the AI and access to big data to analyze the movements of millions of people and thus achieve effective tracing and cordoning of infections, and China does. See:
    https://asiatimes.com/2020/03/china-suppressed-covid-19-with-ai-and-big-data/
    This was also evident in the first papers to appear in high-profile scientific journals. The Chinese actually boasted of their capacity to build containment based on big data, mathematical-statistical modelling, and AI.
    (3) Powerful corps in the pharma field saw an opening to insert hig-cost new biotechnologies that would have needed decades to mature into profitable business under normal conditions. The mRNA technology has not been approved for cancer treatment or vaccines or any other product despite years of effort and investment and was a long way to get any breakthrough.
    (4) Western government incompetence, fundamentally spite for Russia and China (Russia angered western bigshots with their early hyping of Sputnik V; China simply angered them by succeeding in controlling the outbreaks), helped to make the mRNA biotechnology something that western govts wanted to push as their solution.
    (5) Western govts desperately wanted to resume business as usual as they felt the cut in taxation income and they feared the need for further quantitative easing and a recession worst than the 2008 Great Recession. So they needed a way out and they thought that taking the risk of the new vaccines was worth compared to the risk of a prolonged recession.

    The results of (1) to (5) is what you have now in the Western world. The showing of authoritarian tendencies is just par for the course, govts always want to increase their authority.

  20. Like pinching a dogs ear while giving it an injection, it appears that the buzz about Covid and it’s vaccines are just one of several means of distracting us from the big picture, which is probably the purposeful collapse of the global economy, and the starvation of the majority of the worlds population. Ice Age Farmer in his podcasts gives us a real-time reporting of how this is being implemented. Supply chain disruptions are their means and Covid is a tool used to further this end. One should start looking for the big picture. It is much more nefarious than getting us all injected with what in all reality is a cocktail of who-knows-what that has known and unknown destructive effects. That people march willingly to their local injection center is the most depressing aspect of this all.

    Dr. Stefan Lanka: Start here.

    There are no pathogenic viruses.

    Not one government, science or medical agency has proven the existence of the Covid-19 virus.

    The justification for the worldwide pandemic status is based upon, not sickness, but “cases” that are determined by a PCR test that has less reliability than a fortune cookie.

    All vaccines (bioweapons) are toxins developed to stimulate a particular immune reaction.

    In almost every instance, you can replace “Covid” with “government edict”.

    An American bioweapon aimed at China? Is that how you stop competitive, efficient and economical production? And if it was just aimed at China, why use a sawed-off shotgun?

    The “Plandemic” is just a narrative initiated to undermine the American rebellion that started in 2016. And the effectiveness of the “vaccines” is only indicative in relation to the profits of the pharmaceutical industry.

  24. @Charles

    I’ve thrown out a couple possibilities before:

    1) Mr. Unz, as is apparent in his dozens of comments, lumps skepticism about the shots with skepticism about the seriousness of the virus. Both, but especially the latter, may in his mind undercut the importance of his writing about the possible provenance of the virus as a bio-weapon used by “rogue elements” of the USG against China and Iran.

    2) Once people of any level of intelligence for whatever reason have used the products, they’re stuck. Human nature is to channel second thoughts into hostility for those who’ve not. (Note how the increasingly apparent inefficacies of the products coincide with increasing sanctions, both institutional and interpersonal.)

    @Colin Wright

    Given that in Europe supposedly “cases are increasing” and “hospitals are full” again even with 70-90% vaccinated, and WHO now screams about “hundreds of thousand dead this Winter” and some idiot politician in the UK just said that “everyone must now take a booster to save Christmas” (LOL, do people still fall for that?), I think there are three possibilities:

    a) It’s all a lie.

    b) “Covid” is really contagious and unstoppable so you really can’t do anything about it. Masks, lockdowns and vaccine mandates and passports, are just, as they say in South America, “trying to cover the sun with a sieve”, they don’t do all that much.

    c) Vaccines, vaccine passports, lockdowns, etc, are actually counter-productive, perpetuating this state of exception that would have ended in 2020 if simply nothing was done about it, except treating the sick (as the Amish did, and as it was done for most diseases in history).

    I really don’t know, but, at this point, if the options are:

    a) vaccine boosters and vaccine passports forever (and still FAIL) or
    b) do nothing,

    Then it’s clear that after this Dark Winter ends, most will agree that b is the sane option.

    Maybe we should take it a little easy on Chomsky. He’ll be 93 next month and looks like death warmed over. But he probably has less dementia than Biden. Plus he has no power.

    Senile Biden, OTOH, is ruining the country with his insane mandates – even though he didn’t cook them up, and just mouths what he’s told. But I’m starting to get a little less black pilled on the subject. Yesterday a federal appeals court granted an emergency (temporary) stay prohibiting the enforcement of Biden’s OSHA mandates, saying that they raise grave constitutional issues. And hero truckers, already in short supply, are exempt from the mandates. Will airline pilots be next?

    I’m not convinced that the mandates will go into effect on Jan.4. There’s way too much opposition – and its growing. Led by Governor DeSantis, many states with republican governors promise to ignore them. So, I’m anxiously waiting to see what the courts say, and hope they’ll rule swiftly before more workers cave to the pressure and take the jab to keep their job. Once you take the jab it’s too late and you are at their mercy. Let’s Go Brandon!

Congratulations for, in my opinion, nailing down all the ways in which the elite are using this virus as the best control method they have had so far in achieving their goals. I haven’t the slightest doubt that they will. Most people don’t care enough about even serious matters directly affecting them. Case in point: Almost daily, I see chem trails being sprayed over Southern California, with their characteristic criss cross patterns.. They spread out until they form the feathery clouds that do a poor job of mimicking real clouds. Now, no one, not from a single local news station comments on why this is being done or even that it’s being done!!! It’s simply treated as if it doesn’t exist.

    Yes! And the most amazing thing about them is that they don’t see themselves as such. They think they will be the “chosen ones” preserved for the future because they could follow the script. They did what they were told like good slaves. They have what I think of as the “Saddam Hussein” state of mind. When Baghdad was being bombed Saddam was reported to have said “Why are they doing this? I was a good leader.” Today, the followers think their valuable contribution to our demise is arguing about how or why we are being targeted and that will preserve them. Allowing the Davos crowd to walk among us without fear is our mistake. Schwab said “We are all at risk until everyone is vaccinated.” He was not talking to you. He was talking to his fellow conspirators and reminding them that they were guilty of the greatest crime ever perpetrated and as long as there were unvaccinated free people he and his friends might pay for it. You can vote your way out of it, but you will have to do it from the rooftops.

  39. In another comment line at unz.com, I suggested that of the conjectures concerning the origin of SARS-COV2, the one with the highest probability was that it was an outbreak from one of the three virology labs in Wuhan. Ron Unz deferred, and has instead posited that it was a deliberate release in Wuhan from a U.S. bioweapons lab.

    I will suggest that at this point, it makes little difference how it was done, or who did it. Instead, it would be most prudent to treat the virus as a bioweapon, and to take such precautions as one may against it.

    Now, if I were going to make a bioweapon which would cause the most damage, I wouldn’t create one which was immediately lethal. Instead, I would make a disease that would spread throughout the enemy population, which would have little effect at first, and which would only, much later, manifest its lethal effects upon that population. You know, like HIV, where the initial infection was nothing much, but only later manifested itself as AIDS.

    And so far, that is just what the Wuhan virus is in fact doing. During the initial stage, it has only affected the old and the weak. Largely asymptomatic airborne and waterborne infection has occurred, and then it becomes MOSTLY uninfectious.

    What happens, though, when the virus continues to act in the body, even though it no longer is symptomatic? Like in what we call ‘long Covid’?

    Coronavirus (one of 2 so-called “cold viruses”) mutates at zillions more sites than flu and it mutates rapidly (by the month). And that’s just for starters. They discovered that H & N flu virus subtypes afford some immunity, probably because flu virus mutates quite slowly. That’s why there has been a semi-successful flu vaccine but NEVER a coronavirus or rhinovirus vaccine after 70 years of trying – not even close! You cannot, given known established vaccine technology, vaccinate against “cold” viruses. I knew that this was phony BS right from the start.

    And this is not my “2 cents.” This is known virology. Trained licensed, and board certified in the subject, since before affirmative action and a pharmaceutical industry takeover of medical practice. That’s important!

    Further, subsequent to our Covid infections, we have been around people with occult Covid infections, who became fully ill a few days later (and immediately informed us of that, to warn us), and we never got it. So we believe we have strong natural immunity.

    And if you think that fraudulent mRNA ‘vaccine’ that does not afford immunity nor stop transmission is going to beat natural immunity, you have: 1.) your head up your ass completely; and, 2.) a very promising and lucrative career at the FDA/CDC/Pfizer/Moderna ahead of you.

  45. I like to hear what intelligent people have to say on the subject. Mensa seems like a lost cause these days so I follow Christopher Langan, once called “the smartest man in America.” He doesn’t pull punches much and seems to track the same reality I’m seeing (for the most part).

    Here is an example:

    Comment: “Conservatism is a sad path to see the world’s smartest man tread.”

    Christopher Langan: Well, here’s the problem. My background was environmentally impoverished in almost every way by American standards – not enough food, no decent clothes, no money for books, no real childhood beyond the age of five or so. It was virtually designed to produce what many still think of as a “liberal” mentality, and that’s what I have in the traditional sense – e.g., you don’t hear me saying many nice things about supercapitalists, monopoly capitalism, and the banking system, or telling people that they should go to college and learn to shoot off their mouths in the “information economy” before learning a trade involving a bit of honest manual labor.

    But then, following cues from the Frankfurt School and other “brain trusts”, honest liberalism went the way of the dodo, veering off into libtardism. In fact, the typical academically trained libtard is almost completely divorced from life in the streets and the fields, understanding not a bit of it; he/she lives in a hygienic rose-colored bubble, floating blissfully above the rough-and-tumble and pontificating like Pollyanna the Nuclear Physicist about “social justice” and the rewards of diversity and multiculturalism, certainly the most disruptive and destructive forces opposing Western Civilization. To those of us who have actually inhabited the bottom tier of society and don’t want to lose what little we still have, it’s nothing but contemptible.

    A look at ‘the usual suspects’ or more prominently Israel reveals that the usual suspects are up to their eyeballs in jabs, restrictions, mass hospitalisations resulting in the horrific realisation that the jab is actually counterproductive and is killing far more than it is saving.

    Thus it is not the Jews, per se, this time. So who exactly is it that benefits this time.

    All the resetting is being done by the financial elites, who actually caused the financial collapse through excessive exploitation of the poor, excessive exploitation of the environment and excessive exploitation of the financial structure that is Capitalism manifest in international banking.

    Names like Claus Schwab, Bill Gates and George Soros are bandied about along with puppets like Joe Biden, Boris Johnson and any number of other national leaders.

    If you were the ultimate ruler, would you let the world mention your name? No, you’d let your gofers carry the can. Consequently while Schwab, Gates and Soros are quite certainly the most obnoxious perverts on the planet, they clearly are not, any of them, the ultimate dictator.

    So who is? Or what cabal? Clearly rich jab exempt types are just another bunch of fall guys should the people finally wake up and start stringing up anyone worth a million or more.

    Divid Icke’s reptilian rulers are becoming popular, aliens from outer space are getting more air time, a reincarnated Hitlerian reich or the fourth reich is becoming popular amongst the ignorant masses…all these unlikely possibilities are being pushed by the media.

    While at the same time the ‘solar minimum’ is being totally ignored, as is the Inuit belief that the earth’s axis has altered based upon the fact that they can see different stars in the north than traditionally so and that their view of the Moon has changed too.

    The mRNA vaccine was first developed as a bio weapon in the 1960s and banned by international treaty between the US and the USSR in the 1970s. And the spike protein attacks the cardiovascular system which is the cause of most of the co-morbidity deaths…which results in damaged venous systems literally exploding.

    While big Pharma valuations have gone through the roof this can not last, because at some point some authority is going to point out big Pharma ‘has no clothes’ and the who Pharma bubble will collapse.

Dmitry Orlov has written several excellent books over the past decade predicting and describing the likely US collapse, and contrasting it with the USSR’s collapse.

    Moreover, the USSR did not have a group of FORTY-PLUS MILLION people of a very different race, reminded every minute by “schools” and “colleges” and “entertainment media” of what a small fraction of (Jewish and) white people did to people who looked like them a century and a half earlier.

    “I’d say that, like most of us, I didn’t want to deal with vaxx at all, except that vaxx has become an unavoidable obstacle and even threat in my life. We have no choice but to be “obsessed” with vaxx.”

    I’d say that sums it up for me perfectly. I never considered my self an “anti-vaxxer” and indeed, felt mildly insulted when a good friend asked me if I was one. But what doesn’t seem to be sinking in with most extended family members and my friends is how this particular shot and the narrative surrounding it are so very different in so many ways from all those that have gone before it. (I’m sure I don’t need to get into detail for this audience.) However, I’ve had a couple of interesting thoughts about various aspects of all this.

    1) Our would-be masters do not actually want 100% compliance, as it would destroy the argument for the “Health Pass.” If every living being on earth had the jab, requiring proof of that would be a needless exercise. They NEED some part of the population to resist or there would be no one to segregate, and no compelling argument for the pass.

    2) I read just today that Austria is about to implement the first lockdown for “unvaxxed” only. This is painted in the article as evil, and I wouldn’t disagree. However, two or three months of this would actually be ideal, since it might completely demolish the “pandemic of the unvaccinated” narrative, if, as expected, case numbers do not change or continue to get worse over time.

    3) ACTION ITEM: Here in the US, many businesses, in advance of any legally effective government requirement to do so, have been “pro-actively” rolling out their own requirements, in the form of vaxx mandates for their employees and implementation of some kind of pass requirements for customers. We need to start looking these businesses in the eye (or writing letters), and say the following: “THIS VIRUS THING WILL NOT LAST FOREVER, AND WHEN THE CRAZINESS IS OVER, I WILL REMEMBER WHICH BUSINESSES HAD MY BACK DURING A DIFFICULT TIME, AND WHICH ONES DID NOT. I’LL MAKE SURE I HELP MY FRIENDS REMEMBER, TOO.”

    I am uninterested in arguing or debating who opened Pandora’s Box and let the plague escape. I will repeat: at this point, it makes little difference how it was done, or who did it. I consider that any findings of fault will only lead to a casus belli toward global thermonuclear war, and will do nothing to stop the plague, or to moderate its effects.

    Likewise, at this point, it doesn’t much matter whether, as I think, the U.S. government has been taken in a process of regulatory capture by Big Pharma (i.e., Moderna, Pfizer, and J&J) to bet the farm on mRNA vaccines, or that (as others think) it is being guided by a cabal of elites to dispose of ‘surplus population’. My point is that, whether by greed, stupidity, or intent, the policy of the U.S. government has been to engage in a policy of vaccination, mandates, and other actions, which I fear will be shown in time to be not only ineffective, but to be ruinously counterproductive.

    In short, I think that rather than being like Vezzini in ‘The Princess Bride’, who worried endlessly about whether it was the cup in front of him, or the one in front of Westley, which was poisoned, it might be better to spend a bit more time like Westley, who developed an immunity to the poison which was in both cups.

    [MORE]

    Starting off, then, I suggest that it might be reasonable to treat the Wuhan ‘Flu’ as a bioweapon, to observe its present effects and likely developments, and to prepare as best we can against its probable developments.

    What we know of the disease so far is that the virus causing it is transmitted through aerosol and and water solutions, like a ‘flu. It initially infects nasal passages, but soon goes directly to the lungs. In the susceptible, it causes immediate damage to the alveoli of the lungs, but also uses the lungs to spread the virus through the breath to aerosolize to the immediate environment, spreading to others thereby.

    What is more interesting, however, is its method of cellular reproduction: the spike proteins which stud the surface of the virus puncture cells which bear ACE2 receptors; in other words, just about all cells which have contact with blood and with the circulatory system. The S1 portion of that protein stabs through the ACE2 receptor and into the cell itself. The S2 portion of the protein draws the virus into the cell and causes it to fuse with that cell. There, the mRNA in the central capsule of the virus hijacks the mechanisms of the cell, and converts it into a factory which produces more viruses.

    But wait! There’s more! The S1 portion of the spike protein is known also to do three types of cellular damage: 1) clogging the ACE2 receptors, which regulate cellular and vascular blood pressure; 2) damage to the mitochondria of the cell, leading to cell death; and 3), damage to the nucleus of the cell, preventing cell repair or cell division. In addition, there are indications that red blood cells, platelets, and white blood cells all have ACE2 receptors. Finally, there are indications that in those individuals with what is called ‘long Covid’, the disease continues to act after initial infection.

    I believe therefore that it is reasonable to assume that if SARS-COV2 is a bioweapon, it acts like HIV, which causes both cellular damage, and damage to the white cells of the immune system, leading to collapse of the immune system, and in this case, collapse of the entire vascular system as well. And like HIV, it might take some years before the final form of the disease manifests itself.

    If my conjecture is correct, it does not matter if you have gotten the spike protein through the original disease, or through the vaccines (which produce those same spike proteins). In short, it does not matter whether you drink the cup in front of you (the disease) or the cup in front of the government (the vaccines):

    Both cups are poisoned. You might therefore want to start thinking about finding an antidote. I have some ideas about that.

    Unfortunately I am familiar with geo engineering watch dot org. About six years ago I combed through their “lab results” page and found mostly dead links and looped references to the legendary tinkerer, Carnicom. Bless his little rake heart.

    There were three or four links that had something resembling lab reports. I reached out to the labs. As I recall, one did not answer, one got pissed off they were associated with chemtrails, and the last one I hit pay dirt and had the pleasure to speak with a forensic pathologist for half an hour, mostly about the blood barium test results. The short of it was a) the sampling (for this INDIVIDUAL) was done wrong, and b) he is unaware of any regional or national rise in blood barium as would be expected…

    I just looked again and Dane Wiggington or whoever that runs that site has done precious nothing to that page on “lab results”. Dane is a hack, and the site is 6th grade, public school, C minus level “science”. See for yourself:

    Meanwhile, the commercial airline industry is very toxic in a number of way; I am not their apologist. But it is not good the way some people drive themselves to the point of illness assuming that jet clouds are intentional efforts to poison them. They are probably just incidental, sort of like mine tailings.

    I certainly will not reject this conjecture out of hand, Polemos. It would explain much about the virus’s undue effect upon the elderly, those with diabetes, and the obese in general. It would also give weight to the conjecture that the virus was designed as a bioweapon by the PLA, since U.S. and European populations are more subject to obesity than Asian ones.

    Finally, I agree that if your conjecture is correct, then getting down to ideal weight would be the first line of defense against long term effects of the disease. Others come to mind, as well, but I will save discussion of that for another time.

To me, the persistence of many, not all, contrails, is the smoking gun sign of aerosol dispersion of…who knows what, but the solar radiation management patents point toward nano-alumina. Second, the authors say that fuel composition has no effect on “contrail” formation. WTF? They tested fuel from the two jets they observed, and the kerosene fuel in the jet that formed more contrails (with the more efficient engines) had three times as much sulfur as the fuel in the other jet. But no effect on “contrails.” How am I to take this seriously?

    Somyurek would never have told the truth voluntarily, and is still likely to have fudged.

    Dan did a very stupid thing just before he got the shit kicked out of him fell off a ladder.

    He basically told the people who put him in the role (the CFMEU, mostly) that he was going to renege on the quid pro quo.

    Dan’s dead in the water. People from the back-rooms are briefing against him, and it seems clear that IBAC has enough evidence (either documentary or video/audio) to ‘flip’ people who would otherwise be good soldiers. They clearly have enough to convince Somyurek that he couldn’t deny the whole lot… and once the various backroom guys understand that, IBAC will get more material.

    If Dan wasn’t high on his own fumes, he would have the sense to understand that ‘Dirty Deeds, Done Dirt Cheap‘ requires everyone involved to keep their yap shut and to tend assiduously to their side of the bargain.

    Once a few journos were briefed about what IBAC had, everyone ran a mile from the ‘dodgy boyfriend’ story, and now we know what’s on the ICAC tapes – and Gladys is certain to be charged… but her pension is safe.

    Under the NSW, Vic, Qld and Federal systems, if a politician is charged while in office and subsequently found guilty: their pension goes away. If they are charged after leaving office, their pension is intact – even if the offence was committed while they were in office and was relevant to their duties.

    Not conjecture. Here are a few links from a Startpage search using search terms ‘adipose tissue ace2 receptor’ (please also note dates of publication when looking at articles to see the progression of findings):

    “Association of high level gene expression of ACE2 in adipose tissue with mortality of COVID-19 infection in obese patients”
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7368415/

    Conclusion
    This study demonstrates that ACE2 gene expression is higher in visceral and subcutaneous adipose tissue than that in lung tissue, a major target tissue affected by SARS-CoV-2 infection. This suggests a mechanism by which excess adiposity may drive greater infection severity in patients with COVID-19.

    “Obesity and COVID-19: ACE 2, the Missing Tile”
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7246964/

    Obesity is associated in humans and in experimental animals with an imbalance in the RAAS system resulting in an overexpression of the ANG II and AT1R axis at the systemic level [11] and at the level of the adipose tissue [12]. This statement is reinforced by findings in obese rats showing that without adequate exercise, the deleterious ANG II and AT1R axis predominates in spite of increased quantity of ACE 2 [13]. Actually, ACE 2 is largely expressed in adipose tissue and significantly more in visceral than peripheral subcutaneous adipose tissue [14]. Consequently, obese individuals, especially those with exceeding visceral adipose tissue, could develop an explosive systemic response of the ANG II and AT1R axis and could be able to host and stock a huge viral load, possibly contributing to development of a more severe form of the disease. As no specific symptoms or signs of adipose tissue infection develop, this is overlooked in clinical practice where clinicians focus on organ insufficiencies.

    “Association of high level gene expression of ACE2 in adipose tissue with mortality of COVID-19 infection in obese patients”
    https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2451847620301032

    “Obesity and COVID-19: A Fatal Alliance”
    https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s12291-020-00909-2

    Emerging evidence suggests that adipocytes and adipocyte-like cells play an important role in the pathogenic response to COVID-19. Human cell receptor for SARS CoV2, Angiotensin converting enzyme 2 receptor (ACE 2) is a component of Renin Angiotensin System (RAS). It allows intracellular invasion of the virus and its expression is found to be upregulated on alveolar epithelial cells in the lung and in adipose tissue due to obesity, smoking and air pollution [32]. Expression of ACE 2 is found to be upregulated in adipocytes of obese and diabetic patients, which could turn adipose tissue into a potential target and viral reservoir. This could explain why obesity and diabetes are potential comorbidities for COVID-19 infections and in conjunction with each other, significantly increase the severity of the local response in the lung [33].

    ACE 2 receptors play a central role in the pathogenesis of SARS CoV2 infection. This receptor has a peptidase in its N terminal and a collectrin (collecting duct specific transmembrane glycoprotein) in its C terminal. The peptidase has a key role in the function of RAS [34]. ACE 2 receptors are expressed mostly in apical surfaces of well differentiated ciliated cells hence there is a preponderance of these receptors in the lungs and gastrointestinal cells. These receptors are also expressed in the endothelial cells, kidneys, pancreas, adrenals, and adipocytes. The spike protein “S” of the virus is cleaved into two parts i.e. S1 and S2. The S1 domain attaches to ACE 2 receptor and is thus internalized into the host cell. The S2 is cleaved further by host cell serine protease termed TMPRSS2 (Trans Membrane Serine Protease 2) which is instrumental in causing membrane fusion and further dissemination of the virus into the host [35] (Fig. 1).

    “Expression of the SARS-CoV-2 cell receptor gene ACE2 in a wide variety of human tissues”
    https://idpjournal.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s40249-020-00662-x

    Results
    ACE2 expression levels were the highest in the small intestine, testis, kidneys, heart, thyroid, and adipose tissue, and were the lowest in the blood, spleen, bone marrow, brain, blood vessels, and muscle. ACE2 showed medium expression levels in the lungs, colon, liver, bladder, and adrenal gland. ACE2 was not differentially expressed between males and females or between younger and older persons in any tissue. In the skin, digestive system, brain, and blood vessels, ACE2 expression levels were positively associated with immune signatures in both males and females. In the thyroid and lungs, ACE2 expression levels were positively and negatively associated with immune signatures in males and females, respectively, and in the lungs they had a positive and a negative correlation in the older and younger groups, respectively.

    I haven’t gone through all of these for analysis to determine the quality of their work. These aren’t even the first articles I found as I began studying this aspect of our pandemic of the obese (who really are the “useless eaters”?), since I saved those initial articles on a different computer than this one. I’m sure with broader search terms, following PubMed’s “related links”, or using alternate search engines, you’ll find more and more evidence to indicate that it’s obesity, especially with lots of white/visceral adipose tissue, driving much of the severe illness outcomes of COVID-19.

    It’s this research that led me to take even further steps to practice intermittent fasting as a lifestyle, and I have seen my own health outcomes vastly improve all around.

    I intentionally left my passive voice claim about design ambiguous, because I don’t know who designed SC2. However, the more I read through articles such as these, the more it becomes apparent to me that people researching viruses can easily make pseudoviruses having distinct operational parts in order to study key protein synthesis processes in precise ways I hadn’t considered. I conclude —haphazardly/half-assedly— from this that there are probably many other ways out there to design, make, and test weaponized viruses than the general public has known, wants to know, and will be allowed to know, when the procedures for how to make these pseudoviruses with active cytotoxic proteins are available at all kinds of research outfits, to include academic ones to transnational corporation ones to transnational criminal organization ones. If someone wants to make a very dirty virus, that seems pretty easy, whereas the harder task is making a very clean virus that’s indistinguishable from something made by Nature, who wants to make every living thing become another dead thing for other living things to transform into living things that become more dead things for yet more living things to transform into yet more living things that . . . . &c.

    https://www.rebelnews.com/kill_dans_bill

    If Dictator Dan’s bill gets through, then Dictator Dan (or his personally appointed successor) will become Victoria’s Supreme Leader – forever.

    From that point on, any opponent of any of Dictator Dan’s personal edicts will be off to the gulag (the first of which is already under construction, financed by the government of God-botherer and closet Satanist PM Morrison).

    This is serious – more serious than in any living Australian’s lifetime, and even in all Australian history, because the Victorian dictatorship will be used as the template for all Australian states and then for Australia as a whole.

    If we don’t put a stop to this now, then we’re screwed for at least the next few generations.

    If we don’t stop this now, then if you were born a free Australian, you will die as a slave (and probably way sooner than you expected).

    You Twice got a Lucky Jab

    a Lucky Lot – just containing saline, and no destructive ingredients, cos of manufacturing and distributing problems.

    Most of the jabs had no effect.. but to terrorise you

    None of my immediate family have been jabbed…and dropped dead, except my Sister.

    She’s a Rock Chick. She maybe 66 years old, but She’s Still Really Fit.

  117. @Dumbo

    Exactly. At first (in late 2019/early 2020) it was at least somewhat plausible that ignorance and/or incompetence and political rivalry were factors in the U.S. “government” response to the pandemic. But in retrospect two years later the calculated evil/bad faith of the U.S. “government” is now painfully obvious.

    In my view a comparison can be made between covid-19 and the 9/11 “terrorist” attack. For example, prior to 9/11 we had several hints that a “terrorist” attack was going to happen; e.g. Paul Wolfowitz’ eerie Commencement Address at West Point on June 6, 2001 and the President’s Daily Brief of August 6, 2001 entitled Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US. And in 2017 we had Fauci predicting that a pandemic would soon occur:

    https://www.healio.com/news/infectious-disease/20170111/fauci-no-doubt-trump-will-face-surprise-infectious-disease-outbreak

    Then in the aftermath we had the U.S. “government” immediately blaming China for covid-19 just like it immediately blamed Osama bin Laden for 9/11. In both cases we had U.S. government stonewalling, refusing to conduct a meaningful investigation and refusing to consider anything that went against the official narrative. The U.S. “government” was no more interested in the suspicious outbreak of the “mysterious respiratory illness” at the Greenspring retirement community in Springfield VA, in June and July of 2019, than it was in the mysterious explosions at the WTC towers on 9/11/2001 as reported by many witnesses.

    Rather than investigating Larry Silverstein, the “government” was attacking Iraq, even though there was no evidence that Iraq had anything to do with 9/11. And rather than promoting the investigation and initiation of pharmacological treatment (especially early pharmacological treatment) for high risk covid-19 patients, the “government” was pushing invasive mechanical ventilation – despite the fact that Chinese authors had already made it clear that most patients receiving invasive mechanical ventilation did not survive.

    And here we are many years after 9/11 and scientific investigations have by now made it clear that WTC7 was almost certainly the victim of a controlled demolition – yet nothing has changed, i.e. there has been no new investigation and no change in U.S. “government” “foreign policy” in the Mideast. Likewise, scientific investigations have by now revealed what are apparently effective new drug treatments for covid-19, e.g. ivermectin, fluvoxamine, protein kinase CK2 inhibitors, even B vitamins and flavonoids, etc., yet nothing has changed, i.e., the “government” claims that covid-19 is a “grave danger” which can only be mitigated by (ineffective and risky) vaccines.

    As I see it, 9/11 was a pretext for the global war on terror – an instrument designed to overthrow the rule of law and start more wars in the Mideast, and covid-19 is the pretext for the overthrow of the last vestiges of domestic liberty and freedom, a necessary step before catastrophic U.S. economic collapse and/or the dangerous U.S. “government” final assault on the remainder of the independent countries of the world.

    Linh,
    I agree that business as usual doesn’t make any sense when our society and economy in the west are showing signs of falling apart, approaching an explosion, and getting ready to implode, all at the same time.

    A lot of people would like to do something, but don’t know what to do. Public schools stopped teaching people to think, and started teaching them to obey experts because experts are “always right”, and they are stupid. Their life experience has taught them they are an insignificant, disposable cog in society.

    To blame these people, for failing to successfully oppose the billionaires is like blaming a legless person for failing to walk up stairs. Where are the people who should be (thru education and experience) leading the way and inspiring these people?

    Most people have slipped from being cubicle slaves (where they still believed in the possibility of freedom) to cubicle serfs, who can’t imagine any other existence.

    They are also taught that people who object to any of this are destroyed.

    Hating masks, lockdowns, and jabs, and feeling powerless to do anything about this, just makes people more depressed, traumatized, and disempowered, and crushes their remaining ability to think and act.

    I have some suggestions on encouraging people to act.

    [MORE]

    ~
    I could write (if I had the time) about things ordinary people can do to make a difference. However, most ordinary people wouldn’t connect with what I said because it would seem like bizarre science fiction to them.

    You write in a way that helps ordinary people connect with the life of others, and understand those people and lives better – you make those people real to them.

    The more I read your writing, the better I get at it, but I have a long ways to go in learning to write so its easy for ordinary people to connect with it.

    I’ll never have your ability to interview people and getting them to talk about their lives because the cognitive handicaps caused by PTSD and dissociation get in the way of my doing that.

    I can still see the dynamics in the big picture, and write about that, if I do it quickly before the dissociation escalates enough to blank out my mind.

    ~
    Some ordinary people are doing things that are making a real difference in the current effort to crush democracy and the middle class, and dispose of much of the underclass.

    I find it encouraging that millions of people are saying “hell no, no jab for me” and are throwing away their careers, rather than getting jabbed. I haven’t seen this kind of determination since the anti-war riots in the 60’s.

    Some of those people are now homeless because of refusing the jab, and some of them are living on the couches of generous friends.

    Some people are organizing a carpool from their neighborhood to the anti-mask/lockdown/vax marches. The poorer we get, the more important cooperative efforts will become.

    One person organizing a carpool is like a drop of rain – not significant in itself. A million people doing this results in several million marchers, which is like a flood that will have a big impact.

    100 years ago the union organizers created the middle class thru the “united we stand” principle, and making personal sacrifices to walk their talk.

    It would help many people to see what they could do, to make a real difference in addressing these issues, if you wrote, in your style, about what ordinary people are doing to push back against the predatory globalists.

    Then, after reading vivid descriptions of what others are doing, at a gut level people would realize “I could do that”. Then they would go on to act on this realization because it had become real to them and they could visualize themselves doing it.

    Eventually, after reading many of these stories, they would start believing again, at a bone deep level, in making sacrifices to stand together.

    ~
    As much as I liked the word, I removed “solidarity” from my working vocabulary because its too abstract and too ambiguous. The phrases “standing together” and “walking your talk” are much more effective in communicating these concepts than the word “solidarity”.

    I suppose a way to describe what I’ve been working on is dumbing down my working vocabulary while at the same time increasing the wisdom I communicate with the words I do use.

    ~
    I grew up reading teaching stories to myself, and still learn best thru teaching stories, which is a more down-home way to describe allegories. The unsanitized versions of Aesop’s Fables and Grimms’ Fairy Tales are examples of teaching stories based in western culture.

    The books I read as a kid were published many years before I read them. You can find older copies of these stories on https://gutenberg.org that were published before the stories were sanitized to hide the hard realities of life from children. Reading these stories over and over programed me with a very different worldview than most children are exposed to.

    Maybe you could write teaching stories, based in the current western culture, about how people are sucesful and unsuccessful in opposing the globalists.

    In real teaching stories, foolish people often came to bad ends, which is part of the goal of teaching stories – teaching them what they shouldn’t do, and what they should be very cautious about. Paying attention to cautionary tales is part of how I survived my adventures.

    The foolish people, who pranced thru the US capitol on January 6th, while figuratively pissing on the sacred symbols of the aristocracy, will be lucky to make it out of jail alive. This is a good example of foolish people coming to a bad end.

    When things worked out for the main character in a teaching story, the stories showed how much time, work, and sacrifice it took before things worked out well – this helped correctly set expectations so, eventually, things would work out well for people working hard to do a good job of living their life.

    I need to correct that comment. The results in the prior comment show serious adverse effects reported in any country subsequent to injection by COVID-19 shots licensed in the U.S. I had stated that the reports were from serious adverse effects that occurred in the US only.

    Below are the results for serious adverse effects subsequent to injection by U.S.-licensed COVID-19 shots, that happened in the US only:

    It is estimated that under-reporting of adverse reactions causes only 1 to 10 percent of the actual adverse effects to appear in the data.

So I am geared towards ensuring I am on the receiving end of as little as possible of that, whilst resisting absolutely the agenda at work. I have no fear of dying, only of not making a good account of myself in the end. Freedom is all. If I don’t have free agency and choice here in this life, then I see nothing to lose.

    In developed world, Australia included of course, my impression is that attitude comes from, mostly, older people. Protests, for example, are full of elderly and women. Not many men, in their prime, there.

    Now, when one looks at history of “people vs TPTBs”, it’s always been, when it came to….ahm…”that”….men in their prime marching in streets. Marching and something else. Plenty of that else, naturally.

    Of interest is, perhaps, how to do anything practical when most of men in their prime aren’t…motivated?

  134. @Greta Handel

    My reasons for thinking that SARS-COV2 is a bioweapon are these:

    1. The evidence put together by the open-source intelligence people of DRASTIC indicates that the viral epidemic had its origin in Wuhan, where there were actually three biolaboratories, and not simply the WIV;

    2. The other two laboratories were i) a military lab which had been in existence since the 1980s, and which had long been implicated in bioweapon research; and ii) a laboratory dedicated to the breeding and disposal of animal used in biological, and in particular, virological experiments;

    3. Both the WIV and the laboratory mentioned in 2ii above have had histories of both sloppy lab technique and outbreaks, and the second laboratory in particular has had a history of poor disposal methods, including disposal of unsterilized animals in the local sewer system;

    4. All three of the Wuhan laboratories have been working in close collaboration with one another, and have shared results of research with one another;

    5. As a result of the revelations of a ‘whistleblower’, the people of DRASTIC have been made aware of a request for a DARPA grant by Peter Daszik, of the EcoHealth Alliance, submitted in 2018. In that request, Daszik proposed that EHC act in cooperation with the WIV to do a study on bat coronaviruses from Hunnan and elsewhere, that this consortium also work on creating ‘chimera’ viruses, and that it also should genetically modify spike proteins to make them more effective (read ‘infectious’) to humans, and that these spike proteins be inserted into ‘chimera’ viruses. Dazsik further recommended that studies be done to replicate furin ‘clefts’ in the spike proteins to increase infectivity to humans. This request was rejected by DARPA, but it appears that funding for this project was granted by another source, but in a lesser amount.

    6. Further, what we know of the virus so far is that it is infectious through both aerosol and aquasol (air and water) transmission, combining the worst aspects of such diseases as the common cold and cholera. Not only do the spike proteins of the virus interfere with the angiotensin system regulating cellular and vascular blood pressure, but they also cause damage to both the mitochondria and the cell nucleus, interfering with DNA repair and replication. The ACE2 receptors which the spike proteins of the virus attacks are found not only in vascular cells, but in all cells which work with the vascular system, up to and including platelets, red blood cells, and the T and B cells of the immune system. Finally, as polemos has so kindly pointed out, the virus particularly affects and attacks adipose cells and the obese and elderly obese. Thus, the virus affects Europeans at a higher rate than it does Asians.

    7. Finally, as I have learned from the late Dr. Jerry Pournelle, in making threat estimates, it is important to discount what one can discern of the intentions the opponent, and instead make those estimates from what one knows of the capabilities of the opponent. Both the bioweapons lab of the PLA and the WIV appear to have had the capability to find coronaviruses, to make chimeras of them, to genetically modify the spike proteins and the furin clefts of those spike proteins. They have also had the opportunity to test the effects of those viruses, not only on experimental animals, and by means of computer simulations, but directly on human beings.

    8. Thus, whether the virus was the deliberate creation of the PLA bioweapons lab, or the accidental release of a highly virulent virus by the WIV, I think it best under the precautionary principle to treat the virus as a bioweapon, and to take all reasonable precautions against either being infected by it, or to minimize the risk factors or consequences of infection.

    P.S. with the exception of the information related by polemos, all of the above information can be obtained at https://drasticresearch.org, with particular emphasis on the following essays to be found there: “SARS-COV-2 Laboratory Leak Hypothesis”, “The DEFUSE PROJECT Documents”, and ‘DRASTIC Analysis of the DEFUSE PROJECT Documents”.

    As regards conjecture, I try to apply Occam’s Razor, which has been stated in Latin as entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem, and for which a workable English translation would be: categories are not to be multiplied without necessity.

    That said, however, I think it reasonable to consider that the three possible vectors of infection from the virus were from the three laboratories in Wuhan; but the most likely vector was the laboratory which provided and disposed of lab animals, and which had a history of dodgy disposal practices. Personally, I think that what most likely happened was that lab rats (or ferrets, or mink, or…) infected with the zero source of the virus, were disposed of through Wuhan sewers, and that initial outbreak was accomplished that way.

    In any event, the probabilities (under these scenarios) are 50/50 that the source of the virus was either the WIV or the PLA biolab. In short, that the virus was either accidentally or deliberately weaponized, but in any event accidentally released.

    As has been posted in previous thread comments, more and more data is coming into the VAERS vaccine adverse effects reporting system of blood clots and heart inflammation (some fatal). These three current vaccines have far more side effects than any approved in history. All previous vaccines were tested for years before receiving approval in the U.S.. These were rushed, and anti-viral therapeutic treatments were very strangely suppressed by state authorities (e.g. ivermectin). Very bad idea for a virus with a 99% survival rate.

    And yes, what you posted is correct regarding extreme caution with the three current vaccines and autoimmune disease. The CDC specifically says there were no tests on those with autoimmune diseases (of which there are several). With a low-level autoimmune disease if you are NOT on medication, your immune system is in a sense “overactive,” and could be much more prone to causing significant inflammation or forming a blood clot due to the action of the spike protein. On the other hand if you are on immune suppressive meds (such as corticosteroids) for autoimmune disease, you obviously should talk to your doctor about the vaccines, since you are in an immune suppressed condition could be highly vulnerable to a Covid-19 infection (a very difficult choice).

    As I have posted before, the least likely vaccine to cause side effects is the yet unapproved Novavax vaccine (protein subunit type) which does not enter the cells like the mRNA (Moderna & Pfizer) or adenovirus vaccine (J&J). Novavax is awaiting approval in a few countries. But many Covid-19 vaccine skeptics (such as Steve Kirsch) are still cautious about Novavax (contains only inactivated(?) spike protein and immune system booster). Dr. Robert Malone has mentioned Novavax positively in a radio interview with Glenn Beck a few months ago (don’t know if his view has changed). Don’t know what Dr. Peter McCullough thinks of Novavax. If anyone has any updates on their Novavax opinions please post. (As most of you know, Malone and McCullough are both highly qualified Covid vaccine skeptics for younger people, but both got vaccinated early due to their age.) They both predicted the side effects we are seeing now reported to VAERS. Note that many vaccine “boosters” (including highly qualified scientists) are using all sorts of twists and turns in their arguments to dismiss the adverse VAERS reports.

    There are lots of prescription and nonprescription therapeutics available now for Covid-19, not just the super expensive ones being announced by the drug companies. Steve Kirsch’s articles have links to the Covid-19 treatment and prevention protocols. The nonprescription therapeutics are widely available at health food stores, grocers, and pharmacies. They include (among several others): Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, zinc, multivitamin/multimineral pill (e.g. Centrum brand), quercetin (plant supplement), NAC (amino acid), low-dose aspirin or Tylenol (fever reducer). Most people are highly deficient in important Vitamin D3 anyway. Lots of info about this online if you search on Covid-19 prevention and treatment protocols (Duck Duck Go rather than Google).

    According to several news articles, the EARLY treatment med pack that they distributed in India with success for those testing positive included Vitamin C, multivitamin/multimineral pill, zinc, Vitamin D3, ivermectin and doxycycline (both of the latter are of course by prescription in the U.S., IF your doc will prescribe them for Covid-19; some won’t).

    People with money are getting vaccinated.

    Whereas, people with money in the US sat out the Vietnam War, and subsequent losing military adventures.

    People without money get cheated all the time. For the well to do, not so much. Or if they get nicked, they mostly don’t give a fuck.

    As a rule of thumb, people with money are pretty good about avoiding feral Negros, and virtue signal with carefully curated examples. People with money skip military service. People with money live in cushy neighborhoods with plenty of cops enforcing order. They don’t lose because of global-homo. People with money tend to do whatever the fuck they want. And they want to get vaccinated. So they did and aren’t doing much of the dying with Covid.

    They also want to boss you around and tell you to get vaxxed. Why? Thats who they are. Generally it is better to do what they do than what they say. But in this case, it is the same.

    Just one correction. The early Covid-19 treatment pack in India also included Tylenol (for fever). The whole list is:

    Vitamin C
    Vitamin D3
    multivitamin/multimineral pill
    zinc (works with compounds such as ivermectin, or non-RX quercetin to enter cells)
    Ivermetin 12mg x 10 tablets, once/day
    doxycycline 100mg x 10 tablets, once/day
    Tylenol

    Sanitizing is also obviously important. Several sources also suggest twice daily gargling with antiseptic mouthwash and cleaning out the nose with Q-Tips and rubbing alcohol and/or hydrogen peroxide.

    “Each home kit contained the following: Paracetamol tablets [Tylenol], Vitamin C, Multivitamin, Zinc, Vitamin D3, Ivermectin 12 mg [quantity #10 tablets], Doxycycline 100 mg [quantity #10 tablets].

  147. “Worse, it’s being deployed as a political, economic and biological weapon against as much of humanity as possible.” I think this would be the objective if it is an intentional release of a bioweapon. I’m not convinced that all elements of the Chinese government didn’t know about COVID-19 before the DIA. They are both using the virus to sway public opinion in their own favor. Fauci looks awfully guilty but I’m not a molecular biologist.

    The issue with the “death jabs” besides the cult around them, the biologically harmful spike protein they contain, that they quickly lose effectiveness in vulnerable populations, and that they are used to terrorize healthy young people to accept totalitarianism is that the Israelis kept them from the Palestinians, and shot themselves up with them instead. If these were intentional “death jabs” then wouldn’t the Palestinians already be rounded up for their 666th booster of the “death jab” to protect them from COVID-19?

    I think what we are seeing is a superstitious cult where they cast the evil spirits onto the unvaccinated, blaming them for divine punishment with atheistic, scientific jargon that is scientifically ignorant. If only the unvaccinated would get vaccinated then we’d have herd immunity they say when the vaccines don’t prevent transmission of the virus. They could do the unvaccinated a favor and chase them out of the country. Call them Azazel and cast them out. There is a tribal element to it too because a Democrat is president so Republicans have to be against something that the other side is for even when the Republican president was responsible for the vaccines. America was founded by fanatics and grifters. What can I expect from such inheritance? It is who they are. Their rootless, cartoonish pseudo-reality is nonsensical and ever changing, but the totalitarianism being setup is real.

    Agreed that collapse in the US is inevitable. It’s only a question of when. Could be next week or could be in 20 years – no way of predicting.

    Much of political crazy talk these days stems from the elite realizing something is going wrong. The regime has lost legitimacy. Something like 30% of resgistered Democrats believe the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

    When a sitting President says on TV resistance is futile because ‚we have F15s, we have nukes‘; one can only imagine what the regime internal polling data and focus groups are telling them. There was a Pew poll published last week that concluded only 19% of all Americans believe the US gov‘t is a force for good. That’s a astonishing number.

    All our various levels of gov‘t are also structurally bankrupt and have been since the 2007-08 Global Financial Crisis. No need to belabor this point.

    So…if collapse is inevitable, and it’s timing impossible to predict..then the sole remaining question one needs to ask oneself is “what will the reaction of our Elites be in event of collapse ?”

    Will our Elites go peacefully offstage like the Soviets and East German elites did ? OR will our Elites cling to power and privilege violently ?

    My guess is the latter – and rather than a peaceful collapse, it’s far more likely we’ll see a Spanish Civil War scenario or possibly a 1920-30s Chinese War Lord scenario. Both are horrific scenarios. Makes the 30 years European Wars seem like nothing.

    Plan accordingly, develop a plan ‘B’ to get out of the country; there is no way one wants one’s family to get swept up in a Spanish Civil War scenario. Plan ‘B’ too extreme to contemplate ? BTW most Americans have Irish or Italian backgrounds, takes a few years but that’s a relatively easy path towards dual citizenship and a Plan ‘B’ ; worth checking out. Once collapse starts in Ernest, borders going to close PDQ. Better to be years early than one day too late.

    among other things start teaching your children self reliance skills immediately. Something as simple as cooking real food, learning to sew a button, repairing the lawnmower, changing oil, fix the bicycle, or even simple window box gardening of parsley or chives.

The fact is govts understand that creating money in a floating currency system is inherently unstable, so they do it very carefully. It may seem not careful, considering the size of bail outs and rounds of quantitative easing, but in fact it is still very careful, carefully tailored to support certain parts of the system, not the whole system.

    If the virus is a bioweapon, it is the most feeble one ever created. It culls the old and sick from the population. Are you trying to do the enemy a favor? “Here, China, we see you have a demographic imbalance problem with not enough workers and too many retirees. Let’s fix that for you . . . .”

    Yet the evidence is clear that Fauci, obviously with the blessing of the Deep State, went to extraordinary efforts to press the bloody knife into the hands of the Chinese government. “Here’s a virus we’re concerned about might be used someday in biowarfare. We’d like you to do gain of function research. We’ll pay you for it. Also, since your scientists don’t know much about gain of function research, we’ll allow them to come to this country and study it.”

    So how does this make sense? The whole point of the exercise has always been to unleash the covid virus not on the Chinese but on the Western populations, as pretext for the institution of totalitarian controls. Obviously, if the virus had ‘escaped’ from a US lab, that wouldn’t be good optics for the US government to claim that Uncle Sam is the savior of mankind. So let’s make it look like it ‘escaped’ from a Chinese lab. Blame China! That’s the ticket!

    I’ve come to suspect that everything about the virus and the vaccine is a lie. I don’t know anyone who has died of the virus, other than second-hand about a man who was very old and in ailing health for years and probably died ‘with’ not ‘of’ if indeed they bothered to do a test on him before designating him as a covid fatality and who trusts the PCR tests anyway when even the inventor didn’t? Likewise, I don’t know anyone who has suffered ‘vaccine injury,’ other than mild sickness for a few days.

    The CDC statistics appear to be cooked, shifting people from other cause-of-death categories into the covid category in order to boost hysteria. For that matter, can we trust any statistic that comes from the government? If the government told you that 300,000 people mysteriously died in various hospitals around the country last Wednesday at 3pm, how would you know they were telling the truth or lying? Then how do you know they’re telling the truth when they tell you that 300,000 additional people died in all of 2020? The government lies us into wars, but we’re supposed to believe it when it comes to disease statistics?

    As far as I know, everything we see in the media is cgi and everyone we see in the media is an actor. That means that Fauci and Malone are both part of the stir-the-pot, divide-the-country game that’s being played by The Powers That Be in order to institute tyranny over the world. The vaccine for all we know is just a saline solution, it cures nothing and it causes no harm either. Anything you see in the media that claims otherwise is just a fabrication to polarize the country, create chaos, and in reaction impose a dictatorship of total social control.

    This is not part of some clever plan. The whole thing reeks of desperation. True, the idea of using a pandemic as an excuse to impose tyranny has been kicking around in New World Order circles for decades, but they knew it was incredibly risky. But the election of Trump scared the shit out of them, and it looked like he was going to be re-elected. Then there’s the rise of China and Russia. Then the petrodollar, the basis of US hegemony, is being threatened by the challenge of solar power becoming cheaper than fossil fuels. Add to this that the ruling elite is very old, in their eighties and nineties, and thus prone to cognitive decline along with the tendency, which many old people have, of imputing their own deterioration with that of the rest of the world.

    The fact that no one is at home at the top is illustrated every day not just by the antics of our shambling Commander-in-Chief but also as the western economic crisis worsens while Asia — especially China — sails serenely on. I don’t know how it will end, but I certainly hope they weren’t stupid enough to actually put real mRNA vaccines in those syringes. Because if they did, we could be looking at an extinction event. But then again, if civilization is wrecked and the economic machine stops and literally billions face starvation, will it matter if the vax was a poison death shot or not?

    In his 1967 essay, “The Responsibility of Intellectuals,” Chomsky succinctly declares, “Intellectuals are in a position to expose the lies of governments, to analyze actions according to their causes and motives and often hidden intentions.”

    In his 2002 essay, “Reflections on 9-11,” Chomsky points out that “despite what must be the most intensive international intelligence investigation in history, evidence about the perpetrators of 9-11 has been hard to find.” And yet, “Nevertheless, despite the thin evidence, the initial conclusion about 9-11 is presumably correct.””

    In the second paragraph, Chomsky in 1967, had realized that his people had not taken over America from the Anglo-Saxon elite, therefore, his position of an outsider attacking government of the enemy.

    Now in the third paragraph, fast forward to 9-11 by this time, his people reign supreme in all things that matters, therefore, the admonition to the hoi polloi to take the poisoned pill without qualms.

    Of course, Occam’s razor (aka parsimony principle) favours the theory that SARS-CoV-2 has a natural origin. See the latest here

    I disagree almost entirely with your assertion. The ‘latest’ simply indicates that bat coronaviruses with a 95% genetic similarity exist in Laos and other parts of southeast Asia, as they do in Hunan. While the Laos coronaviruses appear to have the potential to link to human ACE2 receptors, they appear from the article not to have demonstrated that they do link to those receptors. Further, the Laotian viruses lack the furin cleft that potentiates transmission to humans. Finally, in spite of numerous efforts on the part of the PRC to demonstrate a direct zoonotic transmission from animal to human, they have failed to do so, whether from Hunan or Laos, or wherever.

    I would agree only that SARS-CoV-2 had a natural origin: bat coronaviruses. But until we are able to demonstrate a zoonotic transmission, the present evidence suggests strongly that that ‘origin’ was assisted by humans, in bringing the virus from Hunan (or wherever else) to Wuhan, by various gain-of-function experiments, and finally through dodgy laboratory processes to accidental release.

    In short, Humpty Dumpty was pushed.

    While the Laos coronaviruses appear to have the potential to link to human ACE2 receptors, they appear from the article not to have demonstrated that they do link to those receptors.

    You are wrong. From the article:

    “In an extra step in their study, Eloit and his team showed in the laboratory that the receptor binding domains of these viruses [Laos bat coronaviruses] could attach to the ACE2 receptor on human cells as efficiently as some early variants of SARS-CoV-2. ”

    You are right when you say they lack the furin cleavage site.

    Finally, in spite of numerous efforts on the part of the PRC to demonstrate a direct zoonotic transmission from animal to human, they have failed to do so, whether from Hunan or Laos, or wherever.

    You sound a bit passionate about blaming the Chinese. To this day there is no certain proof that HIV came from primates, and yet AIDS has been infecting sexual deviants, promiscuous and unfortunate people for decades. You demand that the Chinese provide proof right now, two years after patient zero. These are unreasonable demands.

    Anyways, you are certainly wrong by saying that you believe in your conspiracy theory because of Occam’s razor. As you said, Occam’s razor is entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem. The zoonotic origin theory has less parts than your Wuhan lab/Military lab conspiracy theory.

    SARS-CoV-2 was designed with gain-of-function especially to harm human beings. Even if slightly dangerous, why can’t you accept that a vaccine is better for you than for your naïve human body to encounter the novel coronavirus in the wild?

    Why? Because I’m a research engineer that did my share of biological innovation and testing decades ago and can analyze tech and medical stuff for myself. Nutraceuticals and the cheap drugs have afforded our family and extended family many stark benefits against WuFlu in an Asian kill zone.

    A thorough, generic chemistry option for treatment may be safer than defective products with the wrong antigen, like vax with arrival of Delta variant. It is the ignorance and political interference that kills morbid people.

    Even with many, massive comorbitidities, I can use natural items for massive CRP, IL6, IL8 like popcorn to help IVM and ASA make a normally fatal incident into several inconvenient days and then natural immunity.

    I have found this to be reliable non-sensationalist site which I have accessed since the start of the “pandemic”. Multiple language translation, also the data is regularly updated.

    Extract (English) —

    Data from vaccine adverse event reporting systems in the US (VAERS), the EU (EUDRA) and the UK (MHRA) indicates that covid vaccinations have already been associated with about 50,000 deaths and tens of thousands serious adverse events, including allergic shocks, neurological, cardiac and cardiovascular disorders, and miscarriages. These figures may be a substantial underestimate, as vaccine reporting systems typically cover only a fraction of adverse events.

    Although, I am tempted to agree with you wholeheartedly, I don’t think that the government is the root of all evil. As far as I am concerned, the government is just the tip of the iceberg which is the mankind itself. Unfortunately, people are trained to accept evil and cooperate with it in a myriad of ways. Most of us are evil enablers. Those who don’t cooperate with evil are excluded, harassed and ridiculed. On the other hand psychopaths are well tolerated. For a example, cruelty and sadistic behaviors among children are well known and yet these children grow up to become quite successful adults. Many of them become doctors, lawyers, politicians, bankers, CIA interrogators, FBI informants and the list is endless.

    Whether or not SARS-CoV-2 as a bioweapon can be deemed “feeble” depends on the context. If the aggressors’ goal was to kill a few billion people in the short term then yes, their feeble bioweapon failed. But if the goal was an attempt to damage China economically, or if it was intended as a “warning shot” to China, or if it was intended to merely increase the mortality rate of the evermore burdensome elderly/unhealthy over the long term (apparently primarily in the “West”), or if it was intended as a pretext to deploy another weapon – an apparently inefficacious and dangerous if not calculatingly murderous “vaccine” (perhaps in pursuit of other ends, e.g. branding), or if it was some combination of the foregoing – then it’s apparently not a matter of feebleness.

    You still don’t understand, do you? “Vaccine mandates” and “vaccine passports” were never “needed.” They are pointless and retarded, as most people would comply just for fear or social conformity.

    They are not there to promote the vaccine. It is the opposite, the vaccine is used to promote these type of controls and passes and tracking apps and so on.

    I don’t think we will ever get rid of these types of control at this point, seeing how accepting of it all was the majority of the population — if not for Covid, there will be a “health pass” for lots of other things.

    I’ve been thinking if the whole “pro-vaxxer” and “anti-vaxxer” stuff is just yet another way of dividing people, like (fake) progressives vs (fake) conservatives, Democrats vs. Republicans, etc. These people at the top thrive on creating two opposing teams and then watching them fight.

    There was never a need for this conflict and this blaming. If a vaccine works, it protects you, if it doesn’t work, then it doesn’t. Simple as that. No need for any conflict.

    For what it’s worth, I don’t think (so far) that the vaccine is a “death jab”. I also don’t think that Covid is a “killer virus” or something that much out of the ordinary. It’s not even as bad as tuberculosis was at its peak (and still is in some places). But it can get you sick and can kill you… Especially if you’re 82 or have other diseases too.

    As for the vaccine, maybe it’s not a “death jab”, but it still can have bad side effects, it was not formally tested, it’s experimental in a bad way (being experimented on billions) and… It’s inefficient.

    Look, now in Germany, to cite just one example, supposedly now there they have 70% or so “fully vaccinated” people, yet they are having the highest amount of “cases” since the start of the pandemic (of course, since “cases” can mean anything, we don’t even know if this is true, but let’s assume it is).

    Of course, they are blaming it on the “unvaccinated”. However, a year ago, the “unvaccinated” were 100%, and there were less cases. So how is this even possible? You’d expect, I wouldn’t say a 70% reduction, as those things aren’t exactly proportional, but at least a big reduction.

    The only explanation is, the vaccine doesn’t work very well. That is compounded by the fact that its supposed immunity wanes after just six months. So, when we are talking about “vaxxed” vs “unvaxxed”, well, someone who was double-jabbed six months ago, and didn’t take the “booster”, he’s now “unvaxxed” again.

    So we are really talking about permanent vaccines for 100% of the population, every six months.

    Which seems a REALLY stupid and unpractical idea, if you just think a little bit about it.

    All that complying, even pushing “conspiracy nuts” to comply, all that ….for nothing. Worse, actually. Not only there is no going back to 2019, there is definitely going to much worse.

    That look in their eyes, body language, tone of voice. Priceless. Probably some sadistic vengeful streak within me, but, do I love every moment of it.
    They don’t “preach” anymore. They don’t want even to talk about it. Oh boy…..

    Some of us here created a small, at the time, group of “anti-mandate/lockdown” people. The target for derision for…haha….”educated” and “civilized” people here.
    Hahaha……..recently it’s overflowing with people who, just a couple of months ago, were “preaching” to us . “Educating” us. All that shit. Masks, distancing, vaccinations, passes…all of it.
    Their feel of betrayal is…………….well, let’s put it this way: enjoyable to watch.

    I know it won’t change shit. Hahaha…that’s, again, against our “new” recruits. Hahaha..sorry, can’t help myself. Just had a chat with one of them half an hour ago.
    They, again, truly believe that when we, the people, show our displeasure with all those measures TPTBs will change their ways. Hahaha…and again, we hardcore “conspiracy nuts” are piercing their bubbles. Like “doesn’t work like that”.
    I have to say it’s funny.

    So, next phase: waiting for ex-normies who joined us to go next step.
    I am giving them, where I live….say………3 months.

    Not boring for sure.

    But, to each his own.
    So, John (I can call you John I presume…), what would be your advice to people here? Those who have taken both jabs, some even the (first of many…) boosters? Have been distancing 100 %? Wearing masks while jogging on open grassy parks? Those who, on top of all it have been vicious..sorry…passionately educating “conspiracy nuts”?
    What else they could do to go back to those golden days of mid 2019?
    C’mon, give it a shot. I’ll pass it to them here. Promise:).

    the problem of anti-vaxxers clogging up the hospitals.

    Oops, I forgot. You really are an idiot.

    Unlike the anti-vaxx crew at Unz (including Lindh and your Doctor of Economics Paul Roberts) I actually made verifiable predictions that are in my history while you and others here can’t even agree on if the virus exists.

    I predicted that:
    Hospitals in the US would follow Italy and be overloaded, especially in Black/third world areas (true, Bronx and LA hospitals were hit hard)
    If Trump loses it will be because of his mixed response to the virus (true, exit polls of independent voters cited the virus as the main reason for voting Biden)
    Biden will take credit for the success of the vaccines (true)
    A Delta wave in the US will follow the UK and rip through the unvaccinated and overload hospitals (true)

    Here is my latest prediction:
    A winter wave will go through the remaining unvaccinated and elderly/obese that did not get a booster. This wave however will have low deaths and hospital rates due to the Pfizer/Merck pills. Mandates will be harder to justify as the hospitals will be able to handle the influx.

    Instead of calling me names you should be asking me to write articles here. I have a better track record than Dinh and Dr Economics. Maybe you shouldn’t rely so heavily on the opinions of a travel writer and a lifetime government worker that sells books on Amazon.

    Which seems a REALLY stupid and unpractical idea, if you just think a little bit about it.

    It’s quite clear that there is another agenda behind “vaccines” and “vaccine passports” than “our health.”

    The agenda is to plug everyone into a global control and surveillance network for planetary slavery.

    Vax pushers don’t care about Covid, or viruses, or “our health,” or even about vaccines. Vax pushers only care about imposing mandates on everyone around them. They only care about control, compliance, slavery and submission.

    If you question any part of the Covid narrative, or vax hysteria, or mandate mania, then you are an evil “anti-vaxxer.”

    If you take 50 booster shots, but you decline to take booster #51, you are an “anti-vaxxer.”

    If you are injected a million times, but you question mandates, you are an “anti-vaxxer.”

    If you show any hint of independence or critical thought, you are an “anti-vaxxer.”

    Therefore it is useless to begin with, “I’m not an anti-vaxxer, but…”

    This is like beginning with, “I’m not a racist, but…” If you are white, then you are automatically a “racist.”

    If you are heterosexual, you are automatically a “homo-phobe.”

    If you are not Jewish, you are automatically an “anti-Semite.”

    If you are male, you are automatically a “misogynist.”

    Censor: You “marked this comment as spam.” It is NOT spam.

    The mRNA “vaccinations” are not vaccines, but mechanisms designed to induce human cells to produce just one of the several SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins — so that (putatively) the human immune system may produce antibodies that may attack that particular one of the several SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins. The mRNA “vaccines” do not introduce the SARS-CoV-2 virus, itself; and those “vaccines” do not — CANNOT — induce cells to produce any but just one particular spike protein of the several SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins.

    The J&J vaccine is not a vaccine directed (or adequately directed) at SARS-CoV-2 infection. The innate immune system reacts, if it does, to an adenovirus in which (putatively) all or part of the SARS-CoV-2 virus’s DNA is encapsulated. Hence the immune system may not (near-certainly does not) produce SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, but, if any antibodies, only antibodies that target J&J vaccine’s adenovirus-vector.

    The J&J vaccine introduces into the vaccinated person an adenovirus-vector bearing all or part of the SARS-CoV-2 virus’s DNA. No previous NON-EXPERIMENTAL vaccine involved inserting a virus’s DNA into an adenovirus capable of invading a human cell. Other attempts have failed and been terminated.

    In case of an experimental adenovirus-vector HIV vaccine, an HIV-virus Env gp120 protein — not the HIV virus’s DNA — was carried by an adenovirus-vector. In case of one experimental adenovirus-based influenza vaccine, the adenovirus-vector bore a hemagglutinin antigen of avian influenza virus and a toll-like receptor 3 ligands, not the flu virus’s DNA. In another experimental adenovirus-vector influenza vaccine, the adenovirus-vector did not bear the flu virus’s DNA but expressed artificial microRNA to target matrix proteins or nucleoproteins of the influenza virus.

    [MORE]

    Those HIV and flu “vaccines” remained experimental (never even close to approved by the FDA).

    Other anti-virus adenovirus-vector vaccines have not progressed beyond preclinical trials. Those others include vaccines sought to fight rabies virus, dengue virus, and middle east respiratory syndrome coronavirus [“MERS”].

    The deng virus vaccine was a disaster. See, e.g., this: https://news.unchealthcare.org/2021/06/scientists-discover-how-dengue-vaccine-fails-to-protect-against-disease/ Yet, though aware of the vaccine’s efficacy deficiency and serious health risks, the FDA approved it subject to major restrictions. See, e.g., this: https://www.statnews.com/2019/05/01/fda-dengue-vaccine-restrictions/

    Adenovirus-vector vaccines have failed to prove adequately effective in persons who have attained preexisting immunity against the pathogen that the vaccine is sought to combat, because, somehow, preexisting natural immunity diminished the vaccine’s efficacy.

    Other problems indicate that the J&J and mRNA “vaccines” are not SARS-CoV-2 vaccines.

    In the mRNA case, the viral genetic material is encapsulated in vector material [apparently a metal/lipid compound] — vector-material that does not include any of the virus, not even the virus’s genetic material (RNA, DNA…….). In the J&J case, all or part of the SARS-CoV-2 virus’s DNA is encapsulated in an adenovirus-vector that is not SARS-CoV-2 and does not bear in its (the adenovirus-vector’s) own substance any particle or chemistry of SARS-CoV-2.

    The innate immune system’s T1 and T2 cells will not react to the vector-material of the mRNA “vaccines,” and surely not react to the mRNA encapsulated within the mRNA “vaccine” vector. The immune system will not react to the SARS-CoV-2’s DNA encapsulated in the adenovirus-vector used in the J&J vaccine. Therefore, neither “vaccine”-type will cause B cells to develop so as to produce antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2 or any particle or chemistry of SARS-CoV-2.

    The essential matter is this: T1 and T2 cells will not react to any SARS-CoV-2 material because the SARS-CoV-2 material (only its genetic material) is introduced in an encapsulating vector that, itself, bears nothing of the virus and that precludes the immune-system’s reacting to the SARS-CoV-2 material encapsulated in the vector. Since the T1 and T2 cells will not react to SARS-CoV-2 material, they will not affect immature B cells so that the B cells develop to provide SARS-CoV-2-specific antibodies.

    When an substance enters the body, the immune system will recognize the substance as an antigen only if the substance’s SURFACE molecules differ from those found naturally in the body. If the immune system’s T1 and T2 cells deem the alien substance’s SURFACE molecules an antigen, then a process commences to bind B cells to the antigen’s SURFACE. The antigen-bound B cells will divide and mature into a group of identical cells called clones. Matured, those B cells — called plasma cells — secrete antigen-specific antibodies into the bloodstream.

    But the “vaccine”-targeted antigen is not the apparently lipid/metal vector of the mRNA of the Pfizer or Modernal “vacine” or the adenovirus-vector of the J&J vaccine.

    According to Pfizer and Moderna (and the FDA), the immune system CANNOT react to the mRNA “vaccine” vector — so that the vector can enter the virus’s mRNA into a human cell. Such was an essential aspect of the mRNA “vaccine” design.

    The J&J’s vector is an adenovirus. Perhaps a B cell may attach to the SURFACE of the adenovirus-vector. But the attachment will occur only because, reacting to the SURFACE molecules of the adenovirus-vector, “helper” T cells deem the adenovirus-vector an antigen. And, the B cell will NOT attach either to the SARS-CoV-2 DNA encapsulated in the adenovirus-vector or to a cell into which the adenovirus-vector-encapsulated SARS-CoV-2’s DNA may have been introduced.

    The mRNA “vaccine” argument is that, somehow, the “vaccine” vector introduces a SARS-CoV-2 mRNA into a human cell and the mRNA induces the invaded cell to produce a certain SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, and then, somehow, the spike protein exits the cell and the immune system reacts to the freed spike protein.

    But even if all those assertions are true, still the QUESTION is whether the immune system will produce SARS-CoV-2 specific antibodies, rather than only antibodies specific to the particular spike protein — i.e., whether the immune system will fight the SARS-CoV-2 virus, itself, not just to one of the virus’s spike proteins. I have not seen credible, valid, reliable proof of an affirmative answer; and the “break-through” case numbers imply that the correct answer is negative.

    The J&J vaccine argument is (1) that, somehow, the adenovirus-vector will carry SARS-CoV-2 DNA into a human cell or cause SARS-CoV-2 DNA to invade a human cell and (2) that, somehow (and here the matter is very muddy), either
    • (a) somehow the SARS-CoV-2 DNA will exit the cell and the immune system will treat it as an antigen and, somehow, produce antibodies against the DNA, thence, somehow, against the SARS-CoV-2 virus
    or
    • (b) somehow (like a mother?), the SARS-CoV-2 DNA will produce (birth?) an extracellular SARS-CoV-2 virus against which the immune system will produce antibodies.

    If the argument is that, somehow, SARS-CoV-2 DNA exits the cell into which the adenovirus-vector entered the DNA, that argument begs the question of how, if at all, the immune system will produce antibodies that attack the SARS-CoV-2 virus when antibodies are formed to attack the DNA, not the virus. I have not encountered a credible, valid, reliable proof of an affirmative answer.

    Both immunology science and adenovirus-vector vaccine history (see above) indicate grave doubt whether the adenovirus-vector will enter SARS-CoV-2 DNA into a cell or, if the vector will enter the DNA into a cell, then (a) the DNA will exit the cell, (b) the immune system will produce antibodies against the DNA, and (c) those antibodies will attack not only the SARS-CoV-2 DNA but also the SARS-CoV-2 virus, itself.

    If the argument is that, somehow, the SARS-CoV-2 DNA will produce the virus and the immune system will produce antibodies to attack the virus, the question is whether, actually, the adenovirus-vector introduces SARS-CoV-2’s DNA into a human cell and, in that cell, (like a mother?) the DNA produces (births?) a SARS-CoV-2 virus that exits the cell. Helper T cells will NOT react to the DNA while the DNA is within the cell. So, no antibodies will develop unless the virus exits the cell.

    If, somehow, the adenovirus-vector introduces SARS-CoV-2 DNA into a human cell and, somehow (magically), the DNA produces SARS-CoV-2 virus in the cell and, somehow, the virus exits the cell, then a live, non-attenuated SARS-CoV-2 virus will have been freed into the body. [“Attenuated virus” means “a weakened, less vigorous virus.” https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/medicine-and-dentistry/virus-attenuation ] Since the virus will not be dead or attenuated, why would the virus not threaten Covid-19 infection, rather than produce SARS-CoV-2 immunity?

    These considerations indicate grave doubt that either the mRNA “vaccines” or the J&J vaccine can induce — or induce safely — production of antibodies specific to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. So, one must ask: Were Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J clinical trials actually frauds? Consider the immense “Covid” infection “break-through” rate among the fully vaccinated, even the huge frequency of “break-through” deaths.

    Respecting the above-discussed immune-system matters, please compare all of the following sources — one of which is a video in which Dr. Richard M. Fleming renders much pertinent explanation and three or four of which I did not submit to you earlier. Again I urge that you begin watching Fleming-involved video at time 1:20:18, to avoid enduring avoidable sequences of annoying, loud, crass, utterly inexpert speech of Alex Jones or Jones’s offensive, stupid advertisements.

    Another problem is whether “natural killer” T cells [“NKT cells”] may not treat any SARS-CoV-2 material as an antigen (a foreign substance needing to be attacked).

    In the mRNA case, per Pfizer’s and Moderna’s claims, a normal human cell will produce within that normal human cell a SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. The question is whether NKT cells will perceive the otherwise normal human cell to be an antigen merely because the cell has produced, within that cell, a SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

    In the J&J case, the question is whether NKT cells will attack an otherwise normal human cell merely because, per J&J’s claim, the adenovirus-vector has introduced into that otherwise normal human cell all or part of SARS-CoV-2’s DNA.

    The question is NOT whether NKT cells would attack the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The question is whether NKT cells will attack either (a) the SARS-CoV-2 DNA carried by the J&J vaccine adenovirus-vector or entered into a cell or (b) the SARS-CoV-2 mRNA carried by the Pfizer or Moderna “vaccine” vector that carries SARS-CoV-2 mRNA or the spike protein that, putatively, the SARS-CoV-2 mRNA causes to be produced in human cells invaded by the mRNA.

    I have I not encountered a credible affirmative answer in any of the medical journals I read daily or in any article cited by PubMed. And the immense “break-through” numbers indicate a negative.

    This is Part Two of my only comment respecting Linh Dinh’s article. The comment’s first part is here: https://www.unz.com/ldinh/killer-cure/#comment-5004831

    FAIR DISCLOSURE

    In my only earlier comment, I referenced a video that is devoted much to a “Covid-vaccination” critique of Dr. Richard M. Fleming. Dr. Fleming holds MD, PhD, and JD degrees. He is a physicist, physician, and lawyer. Beyond his MD, PhD, and JD doctorates, Dr. Fleming holds Physics, Biology, Psychology, and Chemistry degrees. He is a world-famous Nuclear and Preventive Cardiologist.

    But, in April 2009, Dr. Fleming pleaded guilty to ten counts of health care fraud and three counts of mail and wire fraud. The alleged health care “frauds” involved submitting bills to insurance companies and Medicare for medical procedures and diagnostic heart tests that, allegedly, he had not performed. The alleged mail and wire frauds involved obtaining payment from a soy food company for product-testing work allegedly not performed and, allegedly, creating and submitting false documents to “cover up” his (allegedly) not having done the work.

    The case proceeded to trial. But while the jury was deliberating, Dr. Fleming pleaded guilty. Dr. Fleming was sentenced to paying \$107,244.24 restitution, to serving a 5-years probation, and to suffering a short period of electronic arrest (a tracking bracelet).

    Later (2018), the FDA debarred Dr. Fleming from providing services to any person that has an approved or pending drug product application. The debarment period was ten years. Dr. Fleming appealed. He argued that his guilty plea “does not state a crime,” that he is actually innocent, and that he rendered his guilty plea to protect his children.

    The FDA denied Dr. Fleming a hearing. The FDA stated: “Hearings will not be granted on issues of policy or law, on mere allegations, denials or general descriptions of positions and contentions, or on data and information insufficient to justify the factual determination urged.”

    For a technical reason (a time-default), not on the merits, Dr. Fleming lost his Iowa medical license. Missouri revoked his license for five years, after which he was permitted to re-apply for licensure. But he remains licensed in Nevada and California.

    I put the preceding disclosure since you may incline to disregard Dr. Fleming’s “Covid vaccination” arguments because you may deem him untrustworthy for his having pleaded guilty in a felony fraud case prosecuted in 2009. My view is that Dr. Fleming’s year 2021 “Covid vaccination” arguments must be judged for their content and supporting evidence, not judged on the premise of the guilty plea he submitted in a 2009 federal fraud case.

  243. @Levtraro

    I again beg to differ with you, on any number of levels, and for any number of reasons.

    First, I will repeat and amplify that while ‘Eloit and his team showed’ that the Laotian viruses could attach to human ACE2 receptors, that was not a demonstration, but only a strong indication of their assertion. A demonstration would involve review by other scientists, and replication of the process and results of their experiments. So far, neither have occurred.

    Thank you, however, for your acknowledgement that the furin cleft of the Wuhan virus is not found in any of the Laotian viruses.

    Second, you mischaracterize my motivations. I am uninterested in ‘blaming’ the Chinese. Rather, I am concerned with determining the causes of the outbreak and pandemic, particularly insofar as they concern further possible epidemiological evolutions of the virus. The available evidence for the Wuhan virus would indicate a consortium between the WIV, the biolab of the PLA, Peter Daszik’s EcoHealth Alliance, the NiH, and the CDC, which consortium excavated and isolated bat coronaviruses, brought them to the WIV, and had the opportunity and ability to conduct gain-of-function studies, under conditions which permitted a local outbreak in Wuhan, which later became a pandemic. There would appear to be plenty of ‘blame’ to go around.

    Third, and to the best of my knowledge, I have not ‘demanded’ on this comment line that the PRC provide proof of anything. I simply present the evidence that on mid-September of 2019, four months before the pandemic was announced by the PRC and the WHO, the WIV took offline its library of coronavirus genomes, and since then to the present, has declined cooperation in an international examination of the WIV or its researches. While it would be nice if they were to eventually cooperate, I believe the probabilities of that to be obese. In other words: fat chance.

    Fourth, you display a misunderstanding of the meaning of Occam’s Razor in particular and the process of forming conjectures and hypotheses in general. I believe that it was Albert Einstein who said: “ It can scarcely be denied that the supreme goal of all theory is to make the irreducible basic elements as simple and as few as possible without having to surrender the adequate representation of a single datum of experience.”

    Your conjecture does not explain how a Laotian virus acquired a furin cleft; or how it managed to travel thousands of miles from Laos to Wuhan; further, it flies in the face of all attempts on the part of the PRC to find a zoonotic line of transmission from bats, or any other creature, to humans. Your ‘simple’ answer thus fails to address the data we have so far been able to determine. On the other hand, my ‘conspiracy theory’, as you so amusingly put it, does.

    Fifth and finally, my whole point in raising the issue in the first place is to raise the possibility that SARS-COV2 may, for the reasons I have expressed, not simply be a virus which affects the elderly and the obese, but that it may have long-term, wide-spread, and lethal effects that it might be wise for us to address, by reducing risk factors, and by prophylactic use of anti-virals, as is the case for the treatment of AIDS. My point appears to have flown far over your head.

    Are you stating the evidence is that the vaxxine carries and causes the virus to be introduced but full strength so we get ill Breakdancethru….

    ?

    That is what the evidence suggests like the news articles advocating vaxxing up those boooosters for anyone who wants one where we are already the most highly vaxxed ….but for some reason we keep getting more cases?

    What do u think about the Russian and Chinese vaccines and situation there? Please…

    Most importantly I wanted to ask you please….I keep reading pcr tests are bad/false and there was no CV 19 initially or not at first? Or not until after vaxx

    I think of it as FluBah but in the circulatory…is that correct? Is it a flu?

But on JFK and 9/11 he is so bizarrely mistaken and dogmatic that many questions arise. Of course, with 9/11, the knowledge that MOSSAD, American sayanim and US Sabbat Goyim are responsible, would cause a cataclysm. Perhaps he just wishes to avoid that.

The problem of the right wing fed by fossil Calvinism and anarcho capitalism is to believe that there is no society, only individuals and families. As Attali said in 2009, the solution to the envisioned pandemic would be globalized through vaccination, in order to satisfy a ruthless neo-Malthusian capitalism. I might be considered a stubborn conspiracyist, but nothing makes me change the idea that all those denial leaders were put in there to fail and bury any further resistance to the new trend, even if they did not know about the plan.

I believe they want everyone to know (at some level of consciousness) that the “vaccine” is risky and ineffective, and that the Satanic “government” that pushes it on them is evil, so by allowing themselves to be injected with it anyway under the circumstances (i.e. just because the “government” demands it), what they’re doing is giving worth to evil, i.e. worshiping the beast.

He’s in his thirties and he is one I expect to be beside through the worst of what’s coming. He’s aware, his wife is and they’re right now both losing their jobs over jabs. The thing is this. He has a wife and children. The fear that he feels for them is crippling. He will fight when his back is to the wall. Many of those others will too. I don’t expect to see them much at this stage. The problem seems to be our tamed Western culture which has made us complacent and comfortable. I have no illusions about standing with an army of resistance.

    Also the bio-weapon is NOT the virus. The actual target of the gain of function research has been the spike protein. The virus is almost off the shelf by comparison. Nothing novel about it either. The virus was to get the ball rolling but was never a good vector for the spike proteins. A much better vector was always to be a syringe.

    Right on Lin! Expose the BS and hypocrisy, the irrationality of our species, “irrational man”!

    I offer but one point of disagreement: What we are seeing with the covid associated loss of freedoms, is not something deliberately planned…It is rather a sort of subconscious conspiracy, a phenomenon of the collective mind and zeitgeist. It is also yet another example of the ongoing process of creeping normalcy that comes with the process of ongoing development on the trajectory of techno-financial-industrialism. This process was identified and described by Ted Kaczynski in his manifesto. The restricted freedom, the dehumanization/ant-ification process moves along inexorably and in almost imperceptibly small increments as we adopt new technologies in response to emerging necessities (that the basic, root problems with the system itself have made necessary) and become dependent on them.

    The system’s managers are the pushers and profiteers of new techs while the sheeple they manage live by the motto of “In Tech We Trust” (ITWT) and become easily enamored with the latest technological “miracles” that the system is designed to continue producing. Today’s newly developed tech becomes tomorrow’s necessity and we become increasingly trapped by our “progress” in growing dependency on a system that is ever more totalitarian. The mRNA vaccines are another of our newest, “miracle” techs and the people who push them really believe in them, or must at minimum feign a belief in them for the sake of maintaining their livelihoods-socio-economic status positions. Far too many of the sheeple follow along in the belief, as the majority of us modern humans living in “developed” nations aren’t even thinking enough to consider other paths than to follow along with the herd under its banner of ITWT. The blind are leading the blind and all are in jeopardy of falling into the ditch. When we do fall in the ditch, what will the cry be? “Give us some more new tech to get us out!”..which effectively means “Take away some more of our freedom…Make us more ant-like!”

    You summarize the conundrum of Professor Chomsky very well.

But then in the same interview he admits that he has enjoyed working at MIT University even though he calls it one of the main hubs of the military-industrial state!

    There are a lot of Jewish academics who happily work on behalf of the institutions that Chomsky denounces. (Eg the Neocohens along with many Jewish scientists developing biowarfare agents.) Sometimes I think that we are being played for suckers by Chomsky and the right-wingers who are doing a good cop bad cop rope-a-dope on the rest of us.

    I think that at the end of the day Chomsky has an ethnic loyalty to right-wing fascist Jews far more than to the supposed masses of goyim that are being damaged by the policies of those right-wingers that Chomsky pretends to oppose.

    “For many years, virologists, disease ecologists, and many other medical and biological researchers had been predicting that it was only a matter of time before the next pandemic arrived, including details such as how it would arise and what the most effective strategies for combating it would be. Despite the enormous scientific knowledge humanity has gained, however, an unfounded conspiracy theory about the virus’s origin has gained a lot of traction: that it was genetically engineered with the purpose of infecting humans, that it was leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and that’s where it came from. Most recently, disgraced journalist Nicholas Wade has penned an error-filled, misleading piece promoting this nonsense, but the science tells a different story.

    Fortunately, as scientists, we are not guided by comfort, but rather by the pursuit of truth and accuracy, based on the best knowledge we can obtain. Despite what many prominent voices would have you believe, the virology is open-and-shut: there is no compelling reason to believe that SARS-CoV-2 originated in a lab.”

    No matter how moral, how God fearing and pious a nation of peoples are as a collective, there will always be a a subset of psychopaths and sociopaths that the Zio cabal can enlist to conduct its depraved schemes.

    And, knowing that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, the ONLY way to absolutely minimise government malfeasance is to minimise that power as much as possible.

    Step 1: Cull ENTIRE departments (especially those that entail duplication of services with their state and local counterparts).
    Step 2: MASSIVELY defund all branches of government that remain (none more so than the Military-Industrial-Complex together with the abolition of the CIA, DHS and a numerous other three letter agencies).
    Step 3: Decentralise as much as possible – so that your local member of parliament/Congressman or local government representative, someone known personally by the local community (rather than some faceless bureaucrat in the nation’s capital), presides over decisions that affect you.
    Step 4: Return to sound money – none other than a Gold standard, thus ensuring an end to fiscal profligacy and leaving a legacy of debt and despair for future generations in the way of a crushing debt burden.

    Implicit in Steps 1 and 2 will be the massive reduction in taxation and removal of the huge burden on the private sector to finance the hordes of parasitic government employees.
    With that money being utilised far more efficiently in the private sector, all demographics of wage earners will have a windfall gain and economic prosperity will improve in leaps and bounds.

    Most of the people I know who took the “vaxx” had some sort of bad side effect from it. Not serious, but still, it was something like having a light fever for two or three days. In one case, a person felt badly sick for a whole week.

    Now, I took vaccines before even as an adult and do not remember ever having had recognizable side effects (besides my own personal aversion to needles). But perhaps the flu vaccines have similar effects? I never took those.

    But the interesting thing is that people accept this “price”, as they accept a “bitter medicine”, I suppose, in order to “get back to normal”. But do they really believe that this will help them “get back to normal”, when “normal” has been already redefined, when they themselves know at the moment of taking the vaxx, that it has a probable validity of just six months? And in fact, most “health passes”/”vaccine passports” themselves have a validity of six to nine months in most countries, so you’d think this is in itself an admission of defeat. But this isn’t how this is seen.

    So it feels like the “vaxx” is more seen as some sort of ritual, like a sacrament, showing the will to belong to a new type of society, and it requires a renewal of vows every six months or so.

    a big factor in the undeniable success of China in controlling the epidemic was artificial intelligence, big data, and top-world mathematical and statistical modelling, published in Science and Nature.

    Spain had a semi-serious lockdown (people could go out for shopping and could run various errands while the Chinese in Wuhan were locked in their homes with groceries being delivered to their doors) but they don’t have the computational capacity of the Chinese so they could not do the tracing of infected people by analyzing terabytes of movement data of individuals.

    Really, it is about empire operations. Japan remains an occupied country, I don’t know anybody who has been jabbed with anything but Pfizer. A good portion had immediate bad reactions. Japan’s pharmaceutical sector is strong, if this phantom menace is so bad, why no made-here vaccine?

    Last time I went to my regular doc., his top receptionist (and wife)asked if I had been jabbed, I said no, and that I might consider it if the vaccine was only a vaccine, like at least some of the Chinese and Russian ones.

    I already knew, but she said that only Pfizer is being given out free (at the expense of my taxes), and that none of the Chinese or Russian ones are recognised.

    Whether a passport system is implemented remains a mystery. It was supposed to start last month, and be in place by now. I don”t think it will happen. Most of the place was never under fake emergency state, and the push for influenza jabs has already started.

    It is the moving the goalposts that is a form of brainwashing–making the individual doubt their own capacity to think and understand.

    “We always told you these vaccines did not guarantee 100% immunity.”

    “We never told you they would last forever.”

    “Take your booster and then you will be fine.”

    “Until you need your next booster.”

    Then the hamsters are on the treadmill and they are not thinking humans anymore–and it hurts–and it hurts more when they realize then some folks never got on the treadmill in the first place.

    So it feels like the “vaxx” is more seen as some sort of ritual, like a sacrament, showing the will to belong to a new type of society, and it requires a renewal of vows every six months or so.

    The more religious among us, at least those of the ancient churches, are generally of the view that an efficacious rite is to be done once.

    Baptism, marriage, ordination, etc. do not need repeating or renewed. Confession, even, and absolution are viewed as needing no repeat: newly committed sins require confession, but the old ones are forgiven and gone, they say.

    I am not myself religious, but this strikes me as showing a confidence in their God, and His priests, that the Branch Covidians do not possess.

    The Zio cabal is doing a fine job enlisting the majority of the people in their depraved schemes. I have seen this countless times. Everybody who took the covid shot is already enlisted. Most normies are not sociopaths, they are enablers of the cabal. This is the basis on which the cabal built its power. It is not clear to me why the cabal wants to destroy their own constituency, but this is what they are doing. If their goal is to rewire their brain and turn them into obedient workers, I have really bad news for them. This is utopia. The results may be much worse than optimal.

  298. Important news from France guys!

    An official report from the very official ATIH (Agence Technique de l’Information sur l’Hospitalisation or Technical Agency on Information about Hospitalisation) demonstrates in it’s conclusions that:

    In 2020, for the whole year, hospitalisation for COVID represented 2% of all people hospitalised (because they were longer we reach 4%) and 5% of all hospitalisation of critical care.

    This has been reported on mainstream media.

    The saturation of the hospitals (destroyed by the EU dictatorship) was the same the precedent year, the same as 2018- 2017-2016.

    As I have reported many times, in 2020 there had been a slight increase in overall deaths in france which is scientificaly explained by the so called harvesting phenomenom (ageing of popualtion).

    Professor Raoult, after having been sued by the infamous Order of Doctors (Ordre des Médecins) for having cured thousand of people with HCQ and Ivermectin and talking directly to the population, goes full ballistic. He has made a video using the IHU Marseille channel:

    The title in english tells it all.

    Then he was interviewed by BFM tv, one of the worst propaganda media:

    He even accuses Bill Gates to be the chief engineer behind the whole injection program and when accused of being a conspiracy theorist he just told the presstitute to do his job and check the obvious datas with GAVI. He also denounced the conflict of interests behind all the official actors of this bogus pandemic, citing names like ex minister Agnès Buzyn and her husband Levy (responsible for having forbade the HCQ before the fake pandemic… If youtube translation works it is definitely a must watch.

    Raoult knows how to be respected and the jornos can’t play their usual manipulative game with him. I seems that the presstitute is even very respectful.

    Raoult had already been invited in one of the most mainstream show by a Jew, Cyril Hanouna, who respects Raoult and takes the risk to claim that he has not been injected and wait before thinking about it. Youth in mass love his show.

    In Switzerland, it has been officialy reveald that there has been slighly less death in 2021 than 2020 overall…

    What’s your website about?

  300. @Von Rho

    Yes, I meant that there is no pharmacological treatment for viral respiratory infections, only palliatives or vaccination.

    You’re wrong. Pharmacological treatment of disease caused by a viral infection – in this case covid-19 – can for example consist of drugs that block viral entry into cells; drugs that inhibit viral replication, e.g. by inhibiting critical viral proteases; drugs that block viral replication by targeting host factors, e.g. by inhibiting enzymes that the virus depends on; drugs that have an anti-inflammatory effect; and drugs that may otherwise enhance the ability of the immune system to clear the infection, e.g. NAD precursors which prevent depletion of NAD stores in immune cells.

    Apparently you ignored the peer-reviewed paper I linked to earlier which provides strong evidence that the drug fluvoxamine is an effective treatment for covid-19. In that paper the authors concluded that:

    Overall, fluvoxamine seems to be promising as early treatment for COVID-19 to prevent clinical deterioration requiring hospitalization and to prevent possible long haul symptoms persisting beyond 2 weeks.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7888564/

    There are also other studies which found fluvoxamine able to prevent clinical deterioration in covid-19 patients.

    As far as mechanisms are concerned, fluvoxamine apparently has both an anti-inflammatory and an anti-viral effect:

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33959018/

    There are also other drugs (and natural substances) that can treat covid-19 by inhibiting protein kinase CK2. I believe the drug Silmitasertib has already demonstrated efficacy and is in further clinical trials right now and of course the ellagic acid derived from pomegranate juice and its gut metabolic product urolithin A are potent inhibitors of CK2 and would likely be effective treatment for covid-19.

It’s because there’s a feeling that philosophers like Deleuze call “resentment.” “If I’ve become a loser,” they think, ignoring that it’s because capitalism is driven by commodity fetishism (it goes where the profits are greatest, not where there are “brilliant” people like this hypothetical, but not infrequently moron, driven by parochial moralism) , “my dreams are over and no one helped a brilliant and talented person like me to win,” he continues, “so the government must not help anyone else, especially these lazy homeless and immigrants, and I will be avenged by an omnipotent God who he will punish all those yuppies and hipsters who made money from globalism defending wind turbines and gay pride.” In the paramount of individualism: “I want my right not to wear masks because it’s my problem whether I’m going to get a disease or not”, ignoring that masks serve to not infect other people (80% of protection), including the grandmother.

    “Seems to be promising”, it’s written. These studies are still lacking in evidence, but I hope they (and you) can be right. But what was published little differs from other papers about other drugs I read. What I criticize here is the rush to assert drugs that are proven to be flawed or that still lack evidence (not the case with vaccines, which reduce mortality) of the disease as being proven to be effective, as was done by both no-vax and denial leaders . This behavior, as I have posted before in response to other commentators as well, is due to a failed individualism that will not survive in the ruthless neo-Malthusian capitalism (yes, capitalism, not socialism!) that is approaching us all. I repeat, even at the risk of being pedantic: the pandemic envisioned by Attali in 2009 should necessarily be defeated by collective action, that is, vaccines, not by a pill that an individual can take alone and freely by going to a drugstore and buying.

Whatever you had in 2019 cut by 40 %, at least. And that’s if you have a solid job and/or CONSIDERABLE savings/investments. You’ll lose that job in a heartbeat because the economy WILL shrink, considerably.
    That’s “stagflation”. Big word for idiots like you who can’t get what “inflation” is, but no prob. You don’t need to understand it. You’ll live it.
    With “anarcho-tiranny”, “CBDC”, “Universal Digital ID”, “Social Credit”. All big words, hard to understand. No prob. Yours isn’t to understand but to live it.

    You’ll be able to travel to half the places for half the time you were able to do in 2019. If you have money for it. Stagflation, remember? BUT, any time that travel can be put on hold. ANY time. For a week, month….two months…three..six. You travel to some exotic place and then you get stuck there. Stuck because you don’t belong there and those people WILL make you feel it after a couple of weeks.
    Any time you’ll get a lockdown in your own place. ANY time. Drop of a hat. For a week….month…who knows? Rules will constantly change and you’ll be able to do shit about it. Just take it.
    And while all that applies to you it does not for the top 1 %. And, in lesser degree to those 9% below them. And, of course, that mass of “diversity” which uninterrupted by the Scamdemic, keeps flooding your country. They don’t have testing, don’t get locked down..don’t take vaccines…they keep flooding as we speak.
    You won’t be able to protest no matter how shitty your life becomes. Gays and lesbians will be able to protest with ease for anything they want. Etc.
    The above is “anarcho-tiranny”.

    You’ll need to show your ID whenever you want to get any goods and services. ANY. No ID…no goods and services.
    That’ Universal Digital ID.
    And, all your money will be in a “vault” of your own Central Bank. ALL of IT….No cash at home. No savings here and there. All of your money in a digital account of a Central Bank. Digital………………
    That’s CBDC.
    You’ll have your Social Credit Score. Bad score—>bad outcome. See how it works in some places in China. Can’t happen to your place? Sure…………..

    @Mevashir

    I noticed that this article was provoking a great deal of discussion, with lots of the commenters endorsing this angry criticism:

    I once heard Glenn Greenwald speak and after his talk I asked him about 9/11 and he gave an embarrassed chuckle and said that he totally accepts Chomsky’s view on the official 9/11 commission report. In other words Chomsky and Greenwald (like the late Alexander Cockburn) will expose any conspiracy and question and challenge the government on anything and everything except 9/11.

    You’d obviously also have to add Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, and numerous other very prominent “whistleblowers” to that list, not only with regard to 9/11 but several other “ultra-touchy” topics, including JFK, WWII, and Jewish issues in general.

    However, condemning these individuals for their reticence seems extremely wrong-headed to me.

    Suppose, for example, that Greenwald or Assange had publicly declared himself a “9/11 Truther,” even of the most moderate type, say in the Richard Gage category. They would have obviously been totally blacklisted/destroyed by the MSM, and nobody would have heard their views on anything else. Moreover, the ferocious wave of denunciations they received probably would have caused their former allies to back off, and quite possibly abandon those issues. So what exactly would their action have achieved? Since they probably recognize that reality, it’s very possible that they’ve never bothered looking into any of those issues since they know they couldn’t say anything if they did.

    Another factor is that a large fraction of all the “conspiracy” writing out there on all of these subjects is of extremely poor quality, so it’s possible that they’ve glanced at it, and decided the whole thing was just rubbish.

    For example, I’d been friendly with Alex Cockburn, and although I’d never paid any attention to 9/11, he was just as critical of JFK issues. But once I finally started looking into them and presented them to him the last time we had lunch, he actually seemed quite open to the ideas.

    I should also mention my own situation. When I decided to finally start writing up these “touchy” subjects in June 2018, I was very careful to put ALL them them out there in a rapid series of major articles during just a three or four month period:

    https://www.unz.com/page/american-pravda-series/

    If I’d only raised one or two issues, I’m sure that groups on the other side, like the ADL and AIPAC, would have launched an astonishingly ferocious wave of vilification. But since everything was out there before they decided how to react, they realized that any attacks would be entirely counter-productive, and stayed far away. I finally did goad the ADL into one very milquetoast critique, which gave me the excuse to respond, and since then they’ve remained in hiding:

    Alas, you seem to have misread my comment’s Part One.

    You wrote:

    So A146 you’ve implied that the vaxxine is carrying something that triggers the virus in our body when one is pricked…

    Is this assertion correct?

    Are you stating the evidence is that the vaxxine carries and causes the virus to be introduced but full strength so we get ill Breakdancethru….

    My comment does not assert that any “Covid vaccine” carries “something that triggers the virus.” My comment does not assert that any “Covid vaccine” carries and causes the virus to be introduced but full strength so we get ill Breakdancethru….” My comment does include language that QUESTIONS whether the J&J vaccine’s theory (or argument) involves the assertion that the adenovirus-vector-carried SARS-CoV-2 DNA will birth a whole SARS-CoV-2 virus:

    The J&J vaccine argument is (1) that, somehow, the adenovirus-vector will carry SARS-CoV-2 DNA into a human cell or cause SARS-CoV-2 DNA to invade a human cell and (2) that, somehow (and here the matter is very muddy), either
    • (a) somehow the SARS-CoV-2 DNA will exit the cell and the immune system will treat it as an antigen and, somehow, produce antibodies against the DNA, thence, somehow, against the SARS-CoV-2 virus
    or
    • (b) somehow (like a mother?), the SARS-CoV-2 DNA will produce (birth?) an extracellular SARS-CoV-2 virus against which the immune system will produce antibodies.

    * * *

    If the argument is that, somehow, the SARS-CoV-2 DNA will produce the virus and the immune system will produce antibodies to attack the virus, the question is whether, actually, the adenovirus-vector introduces SARS-CoV-2’s DNA into a human cell and, in that cell, (like a mother?) the DNA produces (births?) a SARS-CoV-2 virus that exits the cell. Helper T cells will NOT react to the DNA while the DNA is within the cell. So, no antibodies will develop unless the virus exits the cell.

    If, somehow, the adenovirus-vector introduces SARS-CoV-2 DNA into a human cell and, somehow (magically), the DNA produces SARS-CoV-2 virus in the cell and, somehow, the virus exits the cell, then a live, non-attenuated SARS-CoV-2 virus will have been freed into the body. [“Attenuated virus” means “a weakened, less vigorous virus.” https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/medicine-and-dentistry/virus-attenuation ] Since the virus will not be dead or attenuated, why would the virus not threaten Covid-19 infection, rather than produce SARS-CoV-2 immunity?

    I do not KNOW whether J&J asserts that the J&J vaccine will produce, in a J&J vaccine recipient, a whole SARS-CoV-2 virus. My expectation is that the J&J vaccine is a concoction searching for a theory that can justify injecting the concoction into humans (or even into a specimen of Mustela furo or Chiroptera or…….).

    But if J&J contends that its vaccine does produce a SARS-CoV-2 virus in a J&J vaccine recipient, then, given all (but only) the information J&J and others have published (or leaked) respecting the J&J vaccine, one must conclude that a J&J-vaccine-produced SARS-CoV-2 virus would NOT be dead or attenuated — hence COULD threaten infection.

    Or has J&J hidden proof that J&J altered the SARS-CoV-2 DNA carried by the adenovirus-vector of the J&J vaccine so that, if the vaccine-carried SARS-CoV-2 DNA does produce a SARS-CoV-2 virus in a J&J vaccine recipient, that SARS-CoV-2 virus will be attenuated or stillborn? I cannot imagine a rational (or greed-associated) reason that would explain J&J’s hiding such proof.

    Suppose the J&J vaccine does birth live, non-attenuated SARS-CoV-2 virus(s) in J&J vaccine recipients. If in any certain J&J vaccine recipient, the vaccine would produce one — only one — live, non-attenuated virus, the infection-chance would be virtually zero: near-never (if ever) can a single virus commence a replication-chain that grows to infection-level. But if the J&J vaccine carries more than few SARS-CoV-2-DNA-bearing adenovirus-vectors into a vaccine-recipient, the vaccine may produce in the recipient more than few SAR-CoV-2 viruses — hence cause “Covid-19″ infection.

    One case is escaping an inconvenient question, as Putin did when he denied belief in the American moon landing hoax at a meeting of the Russian youth. Another case is to do it as a rule or, worse, make denunciations that will help more than harm the enemy. Let’s get Greenwald. He denounced former Brazilian Justice Minister Moro as not being impartial in the judgment of former President Lula. Surprisingly, many of Moro’s known irregularities were not in the case file because, it was said, this would harm other political interests, so it was more convenient to bring out only the essentials to absolve Lula. But, in fact, the operation that destroyed the minister’s legal career resulted to launch his trajectory to the presidency, as a savior in the fight against the estabilishment.

    One can accept the genocide and die, or

    History shows that any violence has to be met and matched with greater, superior violence

    “Seems to be promising”, it’s written.

    Well what else would you expect the authors to say under the circumstances,
    “yipee we found a magical cure for covid-19”? That’s not generally how these investigators express their results.

    These studies are still lacking in evidence, but I hope they (and you) can be right. But what was published little differs from other papers about other drugs I read.

    In your ill-informed, highly-subjective, barely-asserted personal opinion, that is. You apparently either haven’t read very much and aren’t familiar with the subject matter and/or you’re just being contrary. And if you were a high risk patient diagnosed with covid-19 and deteriorating clinically, I believe you’d be singing a very different tune.

    Anyway, the few small successful clinical trials to date with fluvoxamine (and a few other things) don’t exist in a vacuum. By now there are almost 200,000 peer-reviewed published papers on the subject of SARS-CoV-2/covid-19 and quite a bit is known about important pathogen-host interactions for example.

    If it’s established (by way of multiple peer reviewed papers) that a SARS-CoV-2 infection depends on a certain pathway involving a certain host enzyme for example, and you have a cheap, safe, generally well-tolerated drug which is known to target that enzyme, and you do a few clinical trials (albeit small ones) with the drug, and you see positive results, that’s more than you can brush off with your hand-waving and your hapless dismissive rhetoric.

    What I criticize here is the rush to assert drugs that are proven to be flawed or that still lack evidence (not the case with vaccines, which reduce mortality) of the disease as being proven to be effective, as was done by both no-vax and denial leaders .

    What you’re doing here is being contrary. You said: “Yes, I meant that there is no pharmacological treatment for viral respiratory infections [covid-19], only palliatives or vaccination.”

    Once again, this statement is incorrect and misleading. On the contrary the evidence shows that there are several pharmacological treatments available for covid-19.

    Thank you for opining.

    I would very much like to accept your perspective, but I cannot. Cockburn Snowden &Greenwald have spoken up about many extremely controversial issues. The regular readers of their writings I doubt would have any problem whatsoever assimilating 9/11 skepticism. I cannot accept respect or rationalize their timidity.

    Snowden and Greenwald both live in exile. What more do they have to lose by being truthful about 9/11? Cockburn is dead and I believe that was Divine Judgment against him for mocking and vilifying the 9/11 truth movement.

    Your approach was a good one and yes you are correct about the wisdom of putting everything out there at once. But these other critics could easily do the same thing. You should not paint yourself into a corner and make yourself excessively unique in your approach. Any smart investigative journalist could do what you did.

    I completely agree with Victor Thorne who states in that interview I posted here that it only takes about one-hour of open-minded investigation of the many 9/11 truth claims available on the internet to recognize that the official story is a complete lie whitewash and cover up. It does not require extreme intelligence. Nor a PhD. Just good common sense!

    On a different topic, I think many of us would be encouraged if you would step into the political fray and consider running for President. People are extremely disheartened by the Democrats and Biden’s lack of competence. However the thought of voting for Trump is extremely distasteful. He already has proven himself to be a stooge of the right-wing Zionists. He’s also anti-intellectual and a low class crass hedonist.

    Surely you have friends from the time you ran for California Governor who respect you and would support your candidacy. Assuming you are not married, you can be like an American Hitler, a celibate cultured intellectual wholly devoted to the welfare of his people and to the pursuit of Truth. Your last name means US in German or Yiddish so you perhaps could start a new political party called US. Maybe this is your true divine destiny?!

    As someone who has been married and divorced multiple times, I can attest that if you are truly content living as a celibate single man, you are truly blessed because women are a terrible source of anguish and destruction for many men. Witness Epstein’s success in utilizing the lowbrow lust for females to destroy so many great men. A woman sucks a man’s brains right out of his lower member.

    So if you are immune to that temptation, you already stand apart from about 99% of humanity and are well positioned to assume leadership in a time of profound darkness and terrible danger.

    There’s a spiritual saying that the darkness is most intense right before Dawn. Truly the darkness is horrendous right now. But that means that even the smallest flicker of genuine light will capture the attention of the multitudes. Perhaps these dismal times are all a Divine setup to permit you to bear the torch to inspire lead and restore hope to the rest of us?!

On the contrary, note that I didn’t hammer out FVX, but we should all wait before accepting another medicine as a magic panacea. Even though FVX could reduce hospitalizations by 32%, the damage caused by the disease is high for a considerable portion of the population, which is why it must be prevented with vaccines, and not make a genocide against them waiting for the “herd immunity”.

    Mmmmm …. interesting rant by good ole crazy man Alex Jones:

    https://www.banned.video/watch?id=618dd0832fa19644c8b9b7a8

    Here speaking of the peculiar misplaced intellectual and moral arrogance of the Jewish mindset, that surrounds us always (without specifically attributing this arrogance to said group, …. but otherwise it’s obvious his insinuation – no?). Both Chomsky and Gene Simmons fit that bill, to a tee. Of course many many others as well (i.e. – it seems that misplaced intellectual and moral arrogance are traits much more prevalent within said group). It seems to me, that there is this glaring Jewish tendency to over-value one’s own personal opinion. It’s the sin of onot0logical conceit (the root of all sin), glorified, within these Jewish personas, as supposedly representing the best of the best (but really, the worst of the worst).

    Really, …. will these stinky-minded Jews (those whom think their own shit don’t stink are, by definition, ‘stinky-minded’, …. I can smell the stench of their crypto-faux-rationale, all the way from over here) ever shut-up and f*ck-off, already?

    Mr. Unz’s efforts to-date, though very substantial, seems to be having zero effect on such endeavor. Can Mr. Unz confront people like Gene Simmons, or Noam Chomsky, or Howard Stern, or Merrick Garland, …. about how their personal persona-deficiencies is bad for western culture, and so, one would think, ultimately bad for the Jews living in western spheres? I would like to see Mr. Unz cut Noam Chomsky to shreds like he deserves. Chomsky is wrong on race (wrong on BLM, wrong about ‘white supremacy’), extremely wrong on climate change, wrong about his definitions of the left/right political/economic spectrum, and so so wrong about the moral nature of the sars-cov-2 vaxx-hesitant. It should be easy peasy to cut this Chomsky buffoon (an imposter upon the Academy) to shreds.

    Or if Chomsky is too big a fish to fry to start with, then perhaps Mr. Unz could take on the absolutely idiotic attempted take on shaming Caucasianism by way of Darwinism, as committed by the extremely stupid and vapid Jared Diamond of ‘Guns, Germs and Steel’ fame (it is beyond belief that such dreck and bunk stands as high-level work by one of the Academy’s most loved stars of bunk-shite). Mr. Unz could mop the floor with this intellectual pipsqueak, Jared Diamond, in a jiffy.

    RON UNZ CAMPAIGN EVENT

    [MORE]

    I would propose the following as a way to inaugurate your Presidential campaign. I have for a long time wanted to renounce my Israeli citizenship. I was born in the US but have dual citizenship because I moved to Israel after graduating from college. However I live in very constrained financial circumstances and cannot afford to travel from Denver to San Francisco (the nearest Israeli consulate), where I would have to appear in person and also pay about \$200 to formally renounce my citizenship.

    So perhaps we could stage a press conference on the street outside the Israeli consulate. After I successfully complete the paperwork to renounce citizenship, you can state that after you are elected President one of the first things you will do will be to issue an executive order to repeal the right of dual citizenship for Israelis. This will be because of the overwhelming evidence that Israel was behind the 9/11 terror attacks. You will emphasize that this has nothing to do with anti-Semitism but simply because Israel is a terrorist entity and a grave threat to American security.

    I read once a statement attributed to Jesus in the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas, in which he states: The kingdom of God is within you. If you express your inner truth it will save you, but if you conceal or repress it it will destroy you.

    You have gone way out on the limb with your writings on TUR. The logical next step is to assume a position of leadership to translate the ideas you’ve so courageously publicized into concrete policies that will help to save our nation from complete and total ruin.

    Jesus might tell us: You can have a nation or you can have ruination.

    The choice is completely ours. I can affirm after living in Israel over 20 years that Israelis are cowards. They are like jackals and hyenas that prey on the weak and the sick. The only thing they respect is powerful defiance spat out right into their faces. Like any bully, the more they are able to intimidate an adversary the more they come to hate and despise that person.

    We already are on the ropes and have absolutely nothing to lose to unfurl the full force of truth that you have exposed here so patiently and courageously.

    In this case FDR was correct: The only thing we have to fear is fear of the Zionists itself.

    Hello Mevashir. I am still pondering your take on ‘righting the putrefying Jewish subversion’ upon the west, as per the action list (I think it was 14 points in all, if I remember right) you provided awhile back now, on this very question.

    My first intuition is that your suggested approach is too draconian, as we discussed at the time (though I did like your policy-change recommendations around forcing Israel to act more within accepted international norms, by way of withdrawing American favored nation support for Israel …. i.e. – America should be ‘neutral’ on Israel). But I guess I’m still in ‘watch and see’ mode, on what the best approach is. So I am not discounting what you say, out of hand (and I have enjoyed the back and forth with you) …. and you have a whole lot more direct experience with the Jewish community than I do (including within Israel), …. and I have to take that into consideration …. perhaps I am naive in certain ways, on the topic, ….. and for the record, the last comment of yours to me, on that previous thread, ….. and I didn’t really know how to respond ….. what you told me of some very substandard behaviors you have personally been on the receiving end of, by both Jews and certain Christians, …. I found that shocking, and terrible.

    I guess I am still of the mind that perhaps this may be best worked out, by way of firstly, a forced confrontation within the larger Jewish community itself. I guess I am still of the mind that the majority of the Jewish community (particularly in western spheres), are predisposed to western ideals, …. but perhaps have been blinded by incentives, to tow the Jewsih tribal line by the hugely per-capita preponderance of Jewish globalists at the very zenith of western globalist power structures. I’m just a guy on the outside trying to look in (into the Jewish community), and that is what it looks like to me. If so, ….. give this very resilient cultural gestalt (it’s lasted hundreds of years), a pressure from within finally high enough, …. to realign … towards true westernism, …. to renounce this Jewish-flavored-lying-dirtbag version of globalism, …. and we just might achieve a mutual understanding, ….. converting the Jewish experience within the west, towards what it has always promised to be ….. a life-giving symbiosis. I believe the leaderships of the Jewish tribe do not want to go for that, ….. because said cultural symbiosis will lead to cultural oblivion for the Jewish tribe, in the long run, ….. that is what ends up happening when one becomes a true-westerner, …. you are assimilated (which the Jewish leadership probably views as ‘annihilated’). Westernism reins supreme at ‘assimilation’.

    So, ….. I suppose my point is, ….. before we do anything too draconian, …. is it too much to ask, for a goy like me, to wonder and ask, the larger Jewish community, this: ….. The western waters are good for raising all boats, large and small, …. can you not ‘fix’ your community mentors (Jewish globalists), so they stop leaking these life-giving western waters into their putrid globalist swamp? Or are you (the larger Jewish community) powerless too, just as us goys seem to be? But if it’s that you claim, …. I see no excuse …..100x closer to the action, culturally, and all. Still not understanding why the larger Jewish community can’t begin to solve the problem from within. As such, my ongoing challenge to Mr. Unz in that vein (he seems to me to be very well positioned for said endeavor, …. but I imagine the risk is very high).

You might start by reading a paper like the one I linked to and then you can consult the references; and then you can look at the sidebar and see a list of “Similar articles in PubMed” and consult them; and then you can look at articles that cite the one you’re looking at under the heading “Cited by other articles in PMC”; and then you can consult the references in those papers, and on and on until have some kind of an idea.

These people don’t take me seriously and look at me as some kind of deluded riff-raff loser.

    Here are two links to a discussion I had with a rabbi in Jerusalem about Jesus as the Messiah.

    There are two different Jewish threats to America. The liberal globalists who are aligned with the Democratic party and the right wing Zionists who are aligned more overtly with the Republican party (although I agree that Zionists in the end control both parties).

    The first group of Jews are responsible for the cultural destruction of America. The second group of Jews are responsible for yoking America to Israeli interests. The first group of Jews tend to support Zionism and the Zionists will accept their help. However most Israelis probably would support the Republican Trump agenda more than the Democratic agenda. Trump was wildly popular in Israel when he was President. The Israelis are afraid to completely disavow their liberal Jewish supporters. But if the Israelis were smart, maybe they would refuse to have any dealings with the Democratic party and support the cultural conservatives on the Republican side.

    Jews like me might be truth speakers as far as we can ascertain it, but we have absolutely zero influence on the larger Jewish community. I’ve written before that the average Jewish person cannot police the Jewish community. They are as intimidated by Jewish power as the average Italian was intimidated by the Mafia 50 years ago. We are completely helpless.

    If American conservative Christians decide at some point to expel all Jews from America, including me, I would be regretful but I would hardly blame them. Sometimes in politics you can’t be as Discriminating is you might like and you have to take broad-based actions that end up harming a lot of people (what the Pentagon calls collateral damage).

    Maybe someday Americans will conclude that the dangers of the Jewish community are so great that they have to be uniformly expelled from the country and there isn’t enough time or resources to assess them individually. This seems to be what happened at the time of the Spanish Expulsion in 1492. Again, I would regret such a decision but I would hardly blame Americans for implementing such a drastic policy.

    This is why I think 9/11 is a golden opportunity for all of us. You have every right to take action against Israel as a terrorist State based on the overwhelming evidence of their complicity on 9/11. And then you do not have to get into the swampy waters of anti-semitism.

No internet, no vaccine passports, no mobile phones, no CCTV, no TV, no radio, no police, no vehicular traffic, no water, no food trucks, no shipping containers, no petrol, no subway …

    I am sure that the Chinese and Russians have detailed maps of the layout of all these cables.

    For ease of installation and maintenance, the cables tend to run along the sewer and water networks. Those who planned these installations never thought that these cable would one day be used to control the citizenry. All the mobile phone towers to be seen over buildings need such cables to function.

    There is absolutely no way to protect all of the thousands of miles of these fragile networks. The cables are quite harmless to touch – not like electric lines.

    I debated an LOL tag. For about twelve Russian Truth Serum soaked minutes.

    Then, I decided, you deserve the benefit of my doubt. I never created a free speech platform. I only feathered my own nest and infuriated the entire rest of the industry. I only proved that they were lying, but that they were stupid as well. Very little of that translates into value for the average reader. Network outages are esoteric. If satellites crash and you can’t load FeceBerg, it’s not because I didn’t warn you.

    Then I remembered that you have completely missed the plot for two YEARS. You have been, and in perhaps the most important ways continue to still be, a last outpost for reason. And yet…

    The most cited and demonstrably brilliant virologists, biologists, epidemiologists, hematologist oncologists, and many others have been sounding the alarm for nearly two years now. And yet you…

    I do hope that you get your booster and second (tenth) booster to “protect” you from this malaise that kills .03% of us. You are doing nothing more than proving yourself yet another narcissistic boomer. And yet we (I know that I am not alone) had hoped for so much more from you.

    Being very candid, I think the majority of the commenters here are “conspiracy people,” whose fringe views on most issues are extremely distant from my own. Here’s part of one of my comments from a couple of months ago:

    My American Pravda articles are potentially important, because they provide deep analysis of crucial issues in ways found almost nowhere else, and people who have absorbed them, including potentially important individuals, have had their view of the world changed as a result. They’ve now been viewed many millions of times, and there’s no way of knowing who has read them…

    I should mention that when I’ve looked into “conspiracy theories” about 90% of the time they’ve turned out to be total nonsense, and even the ones I believe to be true were heavily contaminated by huge amounts of fallacious reasoning and other garbage. So those articles I’ve written represent just the few nuggets of reality extracted from a huge mountain of low-grade ore, the wheat separated from the chaff.

    It all starts with Covid. Covid locks you in, freezes your economy, destroys your business, wrecks your mental health, strains your relationships, drains your savings, empties your stores, disfigures your society, conditions you to be unnatural and, now, if you don’t agree to be vaccinated, threatens to isolate you (even further) and starve you to death, as charmingly decreed by that Olympus of human rights, Noam Chomsky, plus a host of others.

    It had been obvious for some time, but when Chomsky went after Trump supporters, the downtrodden people he had claimed to champion, he formally transitioned from hypocrite to State Stooge. He now has arrived at kapo. Chomsky is reflective of the entirety of the Western Left in this regard although he milked his pose in a particularly effective manner.

    That out of the way, right, Lihn. Arguments about the virus and the vaccine distract us from what has been done and accomplished in the name of Covid. The United States has been a dictatorship for some time now, with clownish agents such as Chomsky serving as a pressure valve, but it has dragged the rest of the so-called “Free World” into hellish, totalitarian depths Orwell could not have hallucinated. Whether the virus was intentionally released (likely) or not, it has allowed the masters of the evilest regime in human history to seize power and wealth in ways that stagger the mind. That it took almost twenty months before the pushback started at an appropriate level is amazing. Totalitarian regimes have been toppled over far, far less, but this one is so horrific it will not go gently into the night.

And then he will weigh in on the side of that older perspective. But I think he struggles to keep abreast with the explosion of current information and also he’s very reluctant to challenge the essential power structure of our society.

    So even though he is bold to claim that covid-19 was a US biowarfare attack against China and Iran, he is very careful to insist that it was authorized by a “rogue element” in the State Department. Ron simply cannot accept that our entire governmental structure could be fatally compromised.

    On the contrary you haven’t read nearly enough to understand and appreciate (let alone meaningfully debate) what’s going on with some of these treatments including fluvoxamine. And with regard to the sentence you quoted, that’s just the obligatory mention of the never ending quest for more information; more studies are always needed. And BTW the sentence immediately before the one you quoted (but failed to mention) reads as follows:

    “From a clinical practice perspective, the results represent an important step in understanding the role of fluvoxamine for outpatients with COVID-19. In this sense, the study strongly suggests that fluvoxamine constitutes an effective, safe, inexpensive, and relatively well tolerated option for the management of ambulatory patients with COVID-19, which is particularly useful for (but not limited to) low-resource settings.”

    As a follow-on to my previous comment, I think Ron’s MO is pretty clear. His agenda is less clear but I think we can all deduce what that might be.

    Ron will deal with old conspiracies but not current ones. The older the conspiracy the more he will delve into it and amass mountains of information. Regarding 9/11, he admits that it took him almost 10 years to recognize the fallacy of the official narrative. Perhaps ten years from now he might say the same thing about covaxx. But I think for most of us that is little consolation.

    I think the best analogy to explain Ron’s purpose here is that of a coroner who does an autopsy to learn why a patient died. But Ron is most definitely not a physician who diagnoses a disease and prescribes remedies to prevent the patient from dying in the first place. Ron wants to engage us in endless historical speculations and fantasies so long as we don’t focus too much on the present crisis enveloping us.

    That appears to be his whole purpose. His articles are interesting and entertaining but not truly edifying and certainly not remedial or salvific.

    The J&J, like Sputnik-V (russian, adenovirus-vectored too) carry an incomplete adenovirus genome (it miss a sequence needed for successful replication in the vaccinated) and a genetic sequence encoding for the spike protein of SARS-COV-2.

    They don’t carry the whole SARS-COV-2 sequence and will not produce functionnal SARS-COV-2 viruses, but only the spike protein.

    Conceptually it is somewhat similar to what the Pfizer does : introducing in the cells a genetic sequence encoding a protein specific of the SARS-COV-2, to make the cells temporarily produce it in order to expose it to the immune system and trigger a response.

    Personally I am happy you have my IP and all, this is a forum I trust for debate, even if there is always risk attached putting your opinion into the open.

    I would be interested on your opinion as to the changes of objectives/moving of goalposts through the last 20 months more than anything:

    Scientists found a virus, it was killing 0.1-0.5% in February 2020 from Chinese data (3.4% of elderly folk to memory). So 2 week lockdown to help healthcare services. Then months long, now years. Masks, gloves, forced vaccines. First 60% vaccinated (or whatever), now 97% blurted out by Biden. Austria is splitting its population into two camps – “‘free’ makes work”, and “lazy naaaazis’. The penal colony doing its thing with gusto!

    And all with the stigma of debate – predominantly from one side. Doctors threatened with jail for expressing medical opinions in Russia.

    I get information cascades, moral panic, and how herd behaviour can get the species to panic over a mouse, but the species isn’t really panicking any more – even the jabbed don’t care much for the rules due to false expectations being hammered into them for 2 years almost. But is there any change of pace or direction? No – the ones that ‘got everything wrong’ over the last two years are still in charge, and continue to shift goalposts.

    And their supporters for the most part (you included), distance themselves from ‘the vaccine debate’ etc, whilst still acting forcefully to those (a threat is a threat after all) that do.

    The jabs don’t work – NHS data is showing negative efficiency for catching covid after 8 months, hospitalisations and deaths are lower, but that’s without counting the horrific numbers of people dying from the jab.

    And all whilst Pfizer is making off with tens of billions.

    There is inconsistency all over the place, and for a now understood 0.1% IFR nothing burger (in practice).

    And the goalposts will move again. The easy one would be for govs to go Holocaust denial on anyone who disagrees with Pfizer (as the CEO suggests), and criminalise dissent.

    It’s not a big leap, most who still support the measures actively (a smaller fraction of the jabbed each day) would leap at the idea from my experience.

    We are told Covid has killed 750,000 Americans but it’s more like 20,000.

    With all due respect, what is anyone’s proof for any Covid figures, large or small? All we have are guesses by average people, plus specious claims by politicians, bureaucrats, and media outlets. These liars could declare that Covid has killed a billion people, and we would have no way to prove or disprove it.

    We can’t check hospital claims, since we will be subject to arrest. We don’t even have a clear definition of “Covid.” (All vaccine injuries are called “Covid,” and the PCR test is fraudulent.) We don’t have a clear definition of “vaccine” anymore. The CDC and WHO definition of “vaccine” has been made fuzzier to accommodate the Covid narrative. Likewise the Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition of “vaccine” has been altered to support the narrative.

    It’s just mountains of bullshit. And whenever politicians and media outlets bullshit the masses, the masses bullshit themselves and each other.

    Why should we believe any Covid figure, large or small? For any of us, to say that “This number just seems more accurate” is simply guesswork based on “feelings.”

    I’m glad you had a good laugh. That’s increasingly difficult these days!

    But given his irrational stance on Covaxx, and his harsh rhetoric against the rest of us on this thread, I would not support RU for President. I think his agenda is to endlessly distract us with historical revisionism, that cannot change the present situation or even alter the trajectory of the future. It’s all an exercise in fantasy and illusion, smoke and mirrors, to make us think we are dissidents.

    Ron’s the PT Barnum of historical revisionism, wowing us with all sorts of exciting circus acts but all the while in his heart he says There’s a sucker born every minute and they’re all reading my zine!

    Ron seems to be functioning as a conspiracy theory gatekeeper, a judge and referee about what kinds of conspiracies are acceptable and what are not. It’s pretty easy to see his MO: he digests enormous amounts of information that are not available to the rest of us and then pronounces a verdict on which viewpoint is more correct. He doesn’t really do anything original at all. He’s like a machine to process data.

    Even his idea about Covid as a bioweapon is not original but built on the research and earlier writings of others. And then he’s careful to hedge his statement by claiming it’s only a “rogue element” in the US government that is responsible.

    I had hopefully compared Ron to Hitler but I see now that that was inJEWdicious. Hitler seems to have had a genuine love for his people and sacrificed his personal freedom and happiness in service to the German people. I don’t see that in Ron. He has all too familiar Jewish contempt for the masses that he masks with this website that titillates our curiosity but in the end leaves us dangling in the wind.

  392. [can’t properly format for some reason, sorry]

    There are a few medical (technological, scientific) reasons to be wary of the COVID-19 products. Here is just a summary. I may be slightly wrong on details, but probably not by
    much.

    1. Covid-19 is caused by a beta coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. This is a class of virus against which there has never been a successful human vaccine developed. A major reason for that is these viruses tend to mutate rapidly. A few vaccines have been developed for animals, so perhaps there’s a ray of hope.

    2. At least for the mRNA products, widely deployed in US and toother western nations, this is a technology that was in experimental stage for dyears and never reached approval for human usage, proior to t the perceived emergency in early 2020.

    3. As such, the mRNA tech is largely unproven in terms of both efficacy and long-term safety. After barely a year in use, there is already much evidence of far less than originally promised efficacy, and more ominously, indications that these “vaccines” are more deadly or crippling than traditional vaccines, by a factor of one or two orders of magnitude. By some accounts, they have already caused tens of thousands of fatalities and many more severe injuries, far exceeding any previous vaccination in history.

    4. Especially in light of the above, it is increasingly suspicious how widely the jabs are being promoted and even being mandated worldwide.

    Opposition is mounting. Just into mid-November, we have a U.S. Appeals (?) court injuction against the Biden/OSHA “vaccine” mandate upon private employers. Now we have the Oklahoma National Guard refusing the order that its troops be vaccinated.

    Earlier this year we had the WHO using the term “pregnant people.” Apparently Pete Buttigieg and his, er, “Partner,” and less famous men are proof of this miracle of biology.

    The AMA suggested that the sex of a baby is a multiple-choice answer that can be filled in after birth. These are but two recent examples of once-trustworthy institutions that clearly have lost their moorings on reality.

It’s standard practice to get recommended vaccinations (the old fashioned type, that usually have years of rigorous testing) as well as prophylactics against malaria, parasites, etc. COVID-19 is, or at least should be, way down the list of worries for those who live in, or even travel, in such lands.

    I live in the woods of middle America so no beach here. I don’t support mask mandates for places like grocery stores since the contact tracing data showed that they were low risk. Even bars and restaurants are low risk with proper ventilation.

    What I supported was tying the vaccine to the stimulus and not forcing it. But Democrats backed away from that idea because of race. They wanted to make sure all the Blacks got a check from Uncle cheese and they knew that their vaccination rate would be low.

    You raise some interesting points certainly worth considering. Particularly regarding Glenn Greenwald who I actually like, especially his appearances on Tucker. Their segments together are always worth watching.

    My agreement with Mevashir had more to do with Chomsky. Chomsky has got to be the single most overrated intellectual of the last 100 years, though Jordan Peterson became a close second there for a moment or two.

    In the end though, they’re both celebrity intellectuals. And the fatal thing about celebrity intellectuals is that their mediocre minds are extolled as “great” by credulous people devoid of judgment.

    Which brings me to your work. Though I often find myself in disagreement with you, your work on this site in general and your own writing in particular is important for two reasons.
    1. You take risks.
    2. You’re open to learning, even from those you disagree with.

    And those are exactly the two things an intellectual, thinker/writer, or educator must do, aside from imparting knowledge and removing ignoance. In short, you and others here are doing what people like Chomsky are not doing. And not just Chomsky. The entire university itself as a social institutions has abandoned its mission of education.

    They key point here is that your site actually offers what our universities lack, intellectual vitality. That the university doesn’t offer this is why it has sunk to its current state of cultural stagnation. A stagnation so severe that I see no recovery in sight.

    Which means that sites like TUR are helping us move in the direction of offering alternative institutions dedicated to the kind of teaching and learning we will need to rescue us from a stagnation that is having a devastating effect on our institutions.

    It might not be enough. But it’s something, and you’ve got to start somewhere. From this perspective the most important thing about TUR is that it’s a source of intellectual and cultural vitality, which, not surprisingly, is often the result, not of just of convergence of opinion, but of disagreement.

    A lot of the lore and legend of the great conspiracy is fun to imagine about, but a lot of it is rather poorly grounded on reality. In the first place, the Innuit are not known for their astronomical skills. Nor is the latest solar minimum likely to be any more a danger than the last ten or thousand prior ones.

    In further interviews, Dr. Berwanger tells that (translated with Google): “At the same time, he points out the limits of the study, such as the fact that it does not address the effect of the drug on deaths and its conclusions about hospitalizations are weakened by having mixed two criteria. The authors explain that they took into account the need to stay in emergency services because Brazilian hospitals were saturated by the pandemic and sometimes were unable to attend to the patients they needed.”

    I was aware of the claim
    • (a) that the J&J vaccine uses part of SARS-CoV-2 DNA to form a spike protein in human cell invaded by the vaccine’s adenovirus-vector that carries the SARS-CoV-2 DNA and
    • (b) that T1 & T2 cells react to the spike protein and program B cells to attach to the protein’s surface so that antibodies form against the SARS-CoV-2 virus and
    • (c) that NKT cells will attack the spike protein bearing cells and hence, magically, attack also cells invaded by SARS-CoV-2.

    That claim is incredible, much because of the galactically huge number of “breakthroughs” SARS-CoV-2 infections and consequent deaths. But the claim is incredible also for rudimentary reasons.

    Assume, for argument, that the J&J vaccine does cause human cells to produce a SARS-CoV-2 spike protein exactly as the four representative sources assert. See the four, numbered paragraphs that close this comment. I quoted three of the sources. I summarized (did not quote) the fourth because of the form or the fourth’s presentation.

    The third source’s key language is: “After your cells produce the spike protein, your immune system creates antibodies toward the spike protein, protecting you from infection.” But if (as the source does not dispute) the spike protein remains in the cell’s cytoplasm (does not reach and attach to the cells surface or exit free into the body), then the immune system will NOT produce antibodies against the spike protein, for reasons I put in my first comment’s Part One, https://www.unz.com/ldinh/killer-cure/#comment-5004831

    The fourth source asserts: “The virus vector enters cells and releases the SARS-CoV-2 DNA. From that DNA, the cell produces mRNA translates into the spike protein.” But, like the third source, the fourth does not indicate whether, or if so, how, the spike protein attaches to the cell’s surface or exits free from the cell.

    The second source asserts that the [SARS-CoV-2] “spike proteins at the surface of the cells induce production of T-cells (CD4 and CD8)….” But that source does not show how the spike protein reaches and attaches to the cells surface.

    The first source asserts: “The coronavirus spike protein is…produced and displayed on the cell’s surface, prompting [sic, dangling participle] the immune system to begin producing antibodies and activating T-cells to fight off what it thinks [sic, number disagreement] is an infection.” That source does not show how the spike protein is “ displayed on the cell’s surface.” Nor does is identify the T cells that may “activate…to fight off what it thinks [sic, number disagreement] is an infection.”

    [MORE]

    These sources are all too typical. Not even do Janssen/J&J’s materials or the CDC’s or FDA’s explain more. The problems are:
    • (a) The spike proteins’ function is to break trough cells surfaces to INVADE cells (go INTO cells) so that the SARS-CoV-2 virus can enter cells. The SARS-VoV-2’s sundry discrete spike protein species are programmed to invade cell, not to leave cell cytoplasms and attach to cells’ surfaces or exit free from cells. Let me emphasize the matter: The spike proteins are not programmed either to exit a cell or to migrate outward from a cell’s cytoplasm and attach to the cell’s surface.
    • (b) The innate and antibody-producing immune system reacts to molecules of the surfaces of antigens. So, if the spike protein does not attach to a cell’s surface or exit free from a cell where it has formed so that T1 & T2 & B cells may react to the spike protein’s surface molecules, then antibodies will not form against the spike protein’s species.
    • (c) I have searched the medical and immunological literature. I have not found any source that shows that the J&J vaccine’s formulators were, or could be, able to alter SARS-CoV-2 DNA so that it would produce mRNA that would produce a spike protein programmed either to migrate from a cell’s cytoplasm to the cell’s surface and attach to the cell’s surface) or to leave utterly from a cell.

    Assume, for argument, that, magically, the spike protein does leave cell cytoplasm and either attach to cell surface or leave the cell and that the innate immune system reacts to the spike protein. Still, Janssen/J&J have not explained how or why the immune system will attack a SARS-CoV-2 virus despite the vaccine does not introduce the virus into the vaccinated person’s body but introduces just one particular spike protein species of the several discrete spike protein species of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

    The huge “breakthrough” numbers suggest powerfully that the J&J vaccine — and the mRNA “vaccines” — CANNOT immunize against the SARS-CoV-2 virus because those “vaccines” do not use a whole dead or attenuated SARS-CoV-2 virus, but just one of the virus’ spike protein species, not all of the several discrete spike protein species.

    Perhaps if a vaccine used all of the spike proteins and the immune system fought all those spike proteins, the virus could not infect a person. Since the immune system would have disabled ALL of the spike protein species, the virus could not enter human cells and replicate. But the “vaccines” use only one, NOT ALL, of the SARS-CoV-2 virus’s spike protein species.

    (1) From this source: https://www.hackensackmeridianhealth.org/HealthU/2021/01/11/a-simple-breakdown-of-the-ingredients-in-the-covid-vaccines/
    “The Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine is made of…a modified and harmless version of a different virus (Adenovirus 26) is used as a “vector” to deliver the [SARS-CoV-2] DNA gene sequence to produce the coronavirus spike protein. Once the modified adenovirus vaccine enters into the cells, the body of the [Adenovirus 26] virus essentially disintegrates and the [SARS-CoV-2] DNA material within it travels into the nucleus of the human cell where it is transcribed into mRNA. The coronavirus spike protein is then produced and displayed on the cell’s SURFACE, prompting the immune system to begin producing antibodies and activating T-cells to fight off what it thinks is an infection.”

    (2) From this source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8418359/
    “An adenovirus vector manipulated in the laboratory carries genetic information for the spike-protein in the viral DNA that can generate a specific mRNA. *** The strand of the [SARS-CoV-2] viral DNA that would normally tell the cell to make more adenovirus particles, gets translated into mRNA that gets transported out into the cytoplasm, where the cell machinery instead of making adenovirus particles produces spike protein. At this point, the viral spike proteins at the SURFACE of the cells induce production of T-cells (CD4 and CD8), cytotoxic cells, plasma cells, ILs, and B-cells….”

    (3) From this source: https://www.nebraskamed.com/COVID/how-the-johnson-johnson-covid-19-vaccine-works
    “The Johnson & Johnson vaccine delivers the [SARS-CoV-2] virus’ DNA to your cells to make the spike protein. An adenovirus acts as a delivery vehicle used to carry the coronavirus genetic material (DNA). The adenovirus delivers the little piece of DNA to the cell that will then make the spike protein. After your cells produce the spike protein, your immune system creates antibodies toward the spike protein, protecting you from infection.”

    (4) From page 5001 or this source: https://febs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1111/febs.16094
    In the cases of virus vector vaccines, SARS-CoV-2’s spike protein encoding DNA is implanted into a “harmless” adenovirus vector. The virus vector enters cells and releases the SARS-CoV-2 DNA. From that DNA, the cell produces mRNA translates into the spike protein.

    For most western countries the franchise fee is paid to the US directly, whose CIA/NSA direct the COVID operation, by surrendering their people’s privacy & data via the covid pass, by giving the CIA/NSA a seat at every business & government meeting during the fabricated crisis via Zoom, by surrendering their retail sectors to Amazon, & by allowing dollar rich US corporations to buy up property, strategic industries and small businesses, during the massive fire-sale which is following on from the highly destructive, self inflicted, COVID measures.
    The Russians, the Chinese & the Iranians, as excluded states, get the Covid franchise for FREE.

    I am not anti-vaxx. I have been vaccinated against several diseases and no problem to accept them. Soon I will do another shot against tetanos. Valid 20 or 10 depending of one’s age. No problem.

    But I do not accept corruption and blackmail and I want to be able to choose my vaccine. Which is not the case in the USA and EU. I will not accept that the labs and the politicians are not responsible for their products and their decisions. I am convinced that the politicians and the doctors who are advocating the mRNA so-called vaccines have conflicts of interest and are corrupt.

    A so-called vaccine valid 6 months is not a vaccine. A so-called vaccine targeting one proteine alone is not a vaccine.

    In an earlier comment you already linked to a paper by Berwanger (in English), wherein the author stated (and as I quoted earlier and will quote again):

    From a clinical practice perspective, the results represent an important step in understanding the role of fluvoxamine for outpatients with COVID-19. In this sense, the study strongly suggests that fluvoxamine constitutes an effective, safe, inexpensive, and relatively well tolerated option for the management of ambulatory patients with COVID-19, which is particularly useful for (but not limited to) low-resource settings.

    This statement from a paper you cited should settle the matter and end this discussion, but you keep droning on pointlessly. Why not just accept that your claim was wrong and move on?

    WHO declared a “Health Emergency of Global Concern”, or somesuch, after the virus was brought up at WEF in Davos in January, 2020. The usual nexus of scum-bag corporate scammers, media whores and government place-holders went along with it when there were 83 cases outside China, of which only seven were not directly linked to China.

    So Fauci and the scum-bag pharmaceutical whores, including Moderna, the Enron of bio-tech, and Pfizer, essentially a criminal entity in the fashion of HSBC, were green-lighted. They got to launch their mRNA lemon and get rich, which dovetailed with the need to shut down the real economy while the phoney financial sector was inflated with \$8 trillion.

    It was like Caesar being stabbed by a committee. Kooky Gates has been able to wet his beak, while the bio-identitity cash-cow that Israeli and UK scammers have been priming for years comes into maturity.

    Fluvoxamine and similar drugs are only one possible pharmacological treatment for covid-19. There are other approaches that are looking good.

    For example a study published in 2020 identified various host enzymes and signaling pathways critical to a SARS-CoV-2 infection, and some of these are known to be targeted by various natural substances and some drugs that are presently undergoing clinical trials such as Silmitasertib, a protein kinase CK2 inhibitor.

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32645325/

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33994545/

    https://en.prnasia.com/releases/global/coronavirus-breakthrough-senhwa-reports-first-eind-silmitasertib-treated-severe-covid-19-patient-discharged-following-five-days-of-treatment-291291.shtml

    Ellagic acid (derived from drinking pomegranate juice for example) has been found to be a very potent inhibitor of CK2, as is the gut metabolic product of ellagic acid, urolithin A, which is also more bioavailable.

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16610779/

    Drinking pomegranate juice might even be more effective than Silmitasertib as pomegranate juice has also been shown to increase nitric oxide bioavailabilty, and nitric oxide apparently inhibits viral replication.

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16626982/

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33007504/

    Moreover, urolithin A, the gut metabolic product of the ellagic acid from pomegranate juice, also turns out to be an aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) antagonist, and this may also have a therapeutic effect in covid-19.

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30501068/

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32597823/

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33063092/

    I have been surrounded by people with covid-19 but I never got it, and I have advised a few sick people who had it to drink 6 oz of pomegranate juice in the morning and 6 oz in the evening, and these people recovered very quickly and completely.

    Finally, as PMID: 33063092 above and PMID: 33051211 below indicate, there is also a good reason to take B vitamins, particularly B3 as niacinamide, which will help prevent and/or treat the disease.

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33051211/

    Although I can’t conduct my own clinical trial and prove anything, based on the literature and personal experience, I believe that a combination of pomegranate juice and a potent B complex vitamin will be effective in preventing and treating covid-19 (and as a side benefit will also slow aging for the average person).

    There is no doubt that covid-19 can be treated with drugs and/or with natural substances.

    Prepositioned nutraceuticals and generic drugs (e.g. IVM, ASA) for prophylaxis and early treatment represent one layer of household self reliance.

    Slightly more drugs and nutraceuticals available plus a skilled caregiver, an oxygen concentrator and lots of high dose IV vitamin C (5-14 days drip) pretty much remove the likelihood of hospitalization or ICU.

    I bet that the more propaganda one hears about hospitalizations the lower threshold one has for admitting himself to a hospital. Hospitalizations can be outright lied about or manipulated by subtly encouraging people to go.

    In vitro and off label studies.

    ROTFL!

    BTW there is also another approach that would likely be effective for prevention and treatment of covid-19, especially in older people, and that is by way of the cheap, available from amazon, nontoxic and well-tolerated nutritional supplement fisetin, a flavone that’s been found to be a potent senolytic agent, i.e. an anti-aging substance that kills senescent cells.

    Old mice were exposed to NME for 1 week starting on day 0 and were then treated with 20 mg/kg fisetin by means of oral gavage on days 3 to 5, 10 to 12, and 17 to 19 after pathogen exposure (Fig. 4A), with no evidence of adverse effects. In between fisetin dosing, the mice were on a maintenance dose of fisetin [500 parts per million (ppm) Fisetin in chow ad libitum]. Consistent with our previous results (Fig. 3A), 100% of the old mice in the vehicle control groups died within 2 weeks (Fig. 4B, sexes combined, and fig. S9A, graphed by sex). However, 64% of the fisetin-treated male mice and 22% of the female mice survived long-term with a significant extension of overall life span for both sexes. Whether there is a true sex difference in the effect of fisetin on survival needs to be explored further because the ages of the old male and female mice were not identical.

    CONCLUSION
    SnCs (senescent cells) amplify susceptibility to COVID-19 and pathogen-induced hyperinflammation. Reducing SnC burden in aged mice reduces mortality after pathogen exposure, including a β-coronavirus. Our findings strongly support the Geroscience hypothesis that therapeutically targeting fundamental aging mechanisms improves resilience in the elderly, with alleviation of morbidity and mortality due to pathogenic stress. This suggests that senolytics might protect others vulnerable to adverse COVID-19 outcomes in whom increased SnCs occur (such as in obesity or numerous chronic diseases).

    Note that 20 mg/kg in mice is not a very big dose. If we use an interspecies scaling factor of 7.4, the human equivalent dose would be about 2.7 mg/kg, so a 100 kg person would need a daily dose of 270 mg. But since we’re apparently dealing with a “hit-and-run” senolytic mechanism here, it would probably only have to be taken on an intermittent basis, e.g. three consecutive days per month or something like that, to meaningfully reduce the senescent cell burden and realize health and longevity benefits.

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30279143/

    What you’re not getting yet John is that prophylaxis and early treatment with common drugs and supplements work. Better than the trials indicate. The trials’ techniques are way behind, run at suboptimal doses, incomplete menus, and essentially unskilled in application.

    Censorship IS relatively effective in keeping people from getting the best current information about how prevent and treat the latest version bioweapon, like Delta+, which does take more IVM, vitamin D, anti-inflammatories, etc.

    I have all the comorbidities and history of those that die (viruses always loved me; low immune functions + many more). Last week I got Delta from a vaccinated nurse and was not prophylaxed with IVM for exposure while my vitamin D was not yet optimal (only ~50 ng/mL vs 70-100 desired for Delta) . Two days later I was sick.

    I was able to get vigorous early treatment designed for Delta with high dose ivermectin (1 mg/kg/day)(!), vitamin D (50,000 iu/day)(!), vitamin C by the TSB QID and ad lib, zinc, quercetin, aspirin, magnesium, selenium, vitamin B100+. I also had frequent doses of melatonin and an IL8 inhibitor megavitamin to sleep more. I could only improve temps by hard sleep, not just rest. Scary headaches and climbing temps but good after 4 days.

    The 5th Circuit, however, presides over Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, and I’m sure we’ll get a different result in the federal courts of blue states. Ultimately the question will go to SCOTUS, and reading the tea leaves isn’t super encouraging. Kavanaugh and Barrett are shaky. Either one could join the liberal bloc, which includes Roberts, and form a majority. Barrett rejected without comment a request for emergency injunctive relief to stop Indiana University from requiring the jab.

    Why do these jokers bother giving every damn respiratory infection a different name? I’d say it’s to expand their medical empire.

    Chomsky is no opposition : Brzezinsky is more interesting and more original to hear. I left Chomsky in the early 1970 as I studied his generative grammar : this theory is suitable for computer languages only and has been taken up by him from a 17th century Jansenist school that aimed at allowing from human beings only these kinds of behaviour an automaton could perform, especially in matters of speech and literary production. Even though they didn’t have the electronics, they had the concepts, though elite craftsmen, on their leisure time, could build elaborate programmable automatons for various tasks. In other words Chomsky’s approach was transhumanistic : once computers would exchange information more letter-perfectly than people the latter would be dispensed with. His generative grammar theory was pushed throughout the academia of the whole western world resulting in the destruction of language teaching for the generations to come. Thanks to him and to the requirement he pushed for the most recent edition of grammars are of no use for collegiate students to study languages. His theory has been disproved by many devastating counter-examples from real situations. At each disproval by anybody he would react as an inquisitor to describe the guy as an enemy of the people of the kind that should have been never allowed to enter university. His supposedly radical left wing stance had no other use. All his contradictors in linguistic pedagogical matters he attacked as racists. I had no time to lose to read the political declarations of such a scoundrel. At lest Brzezinsky will never confuse computer languages and artificial intelligence with human speech and intelligence however great his fascination for the domain. Chomsky threatened many students with deportation to Cambodia (in speech) at a time he denied that any holocaust was happening there.

    I don’t know, but that’s a good question. Even MDs who are critical of vaccines are stuck in the germs-cause-illness view of life. All they see is “infection” instead of going deeper. The fixation is so embedded, so deep, and so narrow that the vast majority of them can’t think any further than that. There’s an exception or two, mind you.

    99.9% of doctors don’t ask why groups of people come down with certain acute symptoms. It’s just “germs” and those germs gleefully jump from one person to another. Persons opposed to vaccines still think there’s these malevolent little beings chasing them but, hey, they’ve got an “immune system” to fight those bad actors. Invader. Enemy. Fight. Battle. Conquer. That’s where just about everyone’s stuck.

The germs come as a result of illness in order to correct the problem. You need to unlearn what you have been taught and reprogram your thinking, which can take some time.

    The problem with right-wing blogs is that they have a Gnostic, mystical, unscientific and non-rational worldview (even their Catholicism is Gnostic, following even Viganò, a Martinist). Unfortunately, leftists too, being vegans who make love with trees. So rightists just take some isolated scientific data here and there to prove their opinion and dogmatically deny what is contrary to their points. For example, if they want to prove that HCQ is adequate, they mention a lot of biochemical mechanisms, whether the scientific evidence shows otherwise or not. Enlighted, scientific and rational man is a kind of extinction. But, in their superficiality, rightists are only concerned with the tip of the iceberg (male, heterosexual, white, red meat eater, petrol engine supporter, etc.). The French philosopher Comte was interested in neuroscience avant la lettre. He predicted, for example, that the third frontal gyrus of the brain was connected to speech long before Broca. Comte said immunity is driven by morality (not moralism) and this latter by the cortex of the brain. So they fought against Paster, for whom the bug was everything (in fact, the Brazilian positivists in the 1904 Vaccine Revolt supported the no-vax) as well as they were allied with Béchamps (from whom Pasteur stole discoveries, but you can’t blame the latter among the rightists, because he was a fervent Catholic), who considered the “microzyme”, not the “microbe”, that is the current paradigm. Let’s start studying the microzyme. But with science. Regarding to the covid vaccines, East Europe present situation indicates they are needed.

    People really need to see what Dr David Martin has found regarding the virus source. All this speculation is total garbage. There were numerous labs involved, including a Sydney one and of course American ones. Wuhan was just one part of it. Not even a very important part. This is not speculation, we have the documents to prove it all.

    I think this is the one. He’s got all the audited records of where 1.91 billion dollars of US tax money made this happen.

    https://catherineedwards.life/aiovg_videos/a-manufactured-illusion-dr-david-martin-with-reiner-fuellmich-9-7-21/

    Thank you, Rabbitnexus. You have provided invaluable information here. Sorry it took so long to get to it, but I generally prefer written, and not audio, information.

    That said, Dr. Martin is saying here that between 2003 and 2019, there were somewhere between 70 and 80 patents issued which, among them, contain ALL of the genetic information contained in the allegedly “novel” coronavirus SARS-COV2, particularly the ‘spike protein’; that it had been manufactured and ‘weaponized’; that high officials in the CDC, the NiH, and other agencies were long suggesting that this research be ‘monetized’ by driving the media to hype the development of vaccines against viruses which they had in fact created; and that all of this information was in both the patent and the public record.

    In short, the evidence which Dr. Martin provides, if true, indicates that the virus was developed and weaponized by Western bio-technology, and that the consortium of Big Pharma which included Moderna, Pfizer, and J&J, together with the regulatory agencies which they had captured, had an expressed financial interest in its release. This would give support to my conjecture that either a release was arranged by them in Wuhan, or that they anticipated such a release by accident, and took advantage of it when it eventually occurred.

    This evidence would also support my conjecture that the virus was either accidentally or intentionally weaponized, that Covid-19 may be a progressive disease which may later morph into more virulent and fatal forms, and that it might be reasonable to take steps in advance to mitigate its progression through anti-viral prophylaxis.

    Years ago, I read this nice little comment in reply to an article on the much-loved “science”. A few extracts:

    Science is simply the myth of the age (and I am not using myth in the pejorative sense..i.e. myth equals lie). In other words, science is that over riding philosophy or dogma that contextualizes and engulfs modern mans existence. It provides meaning, a sense of purpose, and a belief that we can truly understand the nature of the world around us.

    Unfortunately, there is a problem. The modern myth of our era is inherantly unknowable to the vast majority of our people, and what is known, has been sanitized and rewrote so as to better control us.

    This vaccine is _literally_ poison,

    They are ALL poison, and always have been. You don’t have to fall over dead within 15 minutes of any jab for it to be poisonous. We simply were not designed to take the substances in vaccines directly into our blood. Tiny amounts of some of those same substances ingested into the digestive system is another matter; a tough, healthy person can detoxify them.

    Up until 20 years ago, all vaccines contained mercury. Then “they” quietly removed it (except for the flu shot) but there’s aluminum in those shots now. How’s this for deception:

    The aluminum contained in vaccines is similar to that found in a liter (about 1 quart or 32 fluid ounces) of infant formula. While infants receive about 4.4 milligrams* of aluminum in the first six months of life from vaccines, they receive more than that in their diet. Breast-fed infants ingest about 7 milligrams, formula-fed infants ingest about 38 milligrams, and infants who are fed soy formula ingest almost 117 milligrams of aluminum during the first six months of life.

    https://www.chop.edu/centers-programs/vaccine-education-center/vaccine-ingredients/aluminum

    And so it goes. By the time you’ve finished high school, you’ve had approximately 70 – 72 doses of about 16 different vaccines. Straight into the blood, and in the case of aluminum, into the brain. And there’s way more little surprises in that needle, not just aluminum. Maybe Al is just the tip of the iceberg, I don’t know.

    There’s been a new release of VAERS data since you downloaded 6 weeks ago, so the numbers are even higher now.

    I also searched VAERS for Severe side effects subsequent to COVID-19 injections, and wondered why my number (135,400) was lower than yours. It is because my parameters for Severe included very severe effects like “Deaths” (18,461 deaths were reported! most within a month of injection) and “Permanent Disability” or at least “ER visit” but did not include some of the sequelae your search reported such as “severe headache” and “severe arm pain.”

    I’m glad your report includes these less-serious-but-still -serious side effects, especially since, as you say, they are occurring in numbers orders of magnitude higher than side effects after OTHER vaccines. “That just means the vaccine is working,” is how they’re all explained away.

I lean strongly in the direction that it is, and believe the courts blow predictably with the political winds. If so, my nominee for person of the year is Ron DeSantis, leaving aside for the moment his unfortunate shortcomings in foreign policy.

    Your three sources fail to answer the critical question of whether, and if so how, the spike protein either (a) exits the host human cell’s cytoplasm and attaches to the cell’s surface or (b) exits the host cell completely. If neither event occurs, the immune system WILL NOT react to the presence of the spike protein.

    For a rudimentary indication of WHY the putatively spike-protein-producing “vaccines” cannot engage the immune system unless that spike protein exits the host human cell’s cytoplasm and attaches to the cell surface or exits the host cell completely, see my first and third comments posted in this thread,
    here: https://www.unz.com/ldinh/killer-cure/#comment-5004831
    and here: https://www.unz.com/ldinh/killer-cure/#comment-5008009

    Your second and third source do not begin to address even the antecedent question of exactly how the spike protein . Your first source discusses the mechanism of the spike protein’s production WITHIN a host cell’s cytoplasm. Yet that source does not answer, but assumes away, the critical question, which that source does not state or even adumbrate or intimate.

    Your three sources do not explain away the problem that the “vaccines” cannot protect against the SARS-CoV-2 virus because they attempt only to protect against one spike protein species of the sundry other, discrete spike proteins of the virus.

    Even if, somehow (magically), the “vaccines” afford some whiff of immunity with invasion of the one discrete spike protein species that the “vaccines” produce in human cells, still the virus can invade human cells with the mechanism of any of the virus’s sundry other discrete spike protein species — a phenomenon that REAL and HONEST experts suggest explains, or explains partly, the advent of infections involving delta, lambda, or upsilon (or likely still other) “variants” of the virus — variants that dance past the “vaccines” and into human cells.

    Most, if not all, subunit “vaccines” are not vaccines, and surely the Covid “vaccines” are not vaccines. So, nine months after the FDA authorized experimental use of the Covid “vaccines,” the CDC redefined the term “vaccine” to provide pretext for Pfizer’s, Moderna’s, J&J’s, and the FDA’s, CDC’s, NIH’s, and Fauci’s pretense
    • (a) that the Covid “vaccines” are vaccines (though they are not vaccines)
    • (b) that the Covid “vaccines” engender SARS-CoV-2 immunity (though the “vaccines” do NOT engender immunity) and
    • (c) that the “vaccines” prevent SARS-CoV-2 transmission — though they do not prevent transmission, and though about three months ago the CDC admitted that the “vaccines” do NOT prevent SARS-CoV-2 transmission. (The “vaccines” cannot prevent transmission because they cannot prevent the virus’s invasion, replication, infection, and symptom-causation.)

    I elect not to cite the CDC’s bogus attempt of “justifying” its alteration of the definition of “vaccine” because I dislike feeling nauseous.

    The CDC and Fauci incline to redefine concepts and events to “cover their asses” (as Rand Paul explained the CDC/Fauci inclination). Witness the CDC’s and Fauci’s defining-away “gain of function” research so that Fauci and the CDC may hope to avid criminal prosecution for their intimate involvement in virus gain of function research done CRIMINALLY in the U.S., then, with Fauci’s and the CDC’s criminal participation, in the Wuhan lab.

    Concomitantly with the CDC’s alteration of the definition of vaccine, the FDA, CDC, NIH, and Fauci
    • (a) detoured Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J “vaccines” justification to the assertion that the faux “vaccines” mitigate Covid-19 symptoms, and
    • (b) enhanced their sleight-of-hand cover-up the immense frequency of MAJOR “side-effects” of the “vaccines,” including a hideously great frequency of “vaccine”-caused death.

    Other than the Covid “vaccines.” the others have been failures. For some history of the failures of other adenovirus-vector type subunit “vaccines,” see my comment that I posted first in this thread, here: https://www.unz.com/ldinh/killer-cure/#comment-5004831

    NOTHING has ACTUALLY PROVED that the Covid “vaccines” do ANYTHING except cause harm.

    You say you are not a biologist and do not “pretend to know the detailled [sic] pathway [sic] that goes from a spike protein produced in the cell to it’s [sic] presentation [sic] to the immune system.” Your expertise-lack was apparent before you confessed it.

    I am a physician. In my earlier comments posted in this thread, I have put considerations that may seem, to you, to reflect ignorance. But actually those considerations reflect educated apprehension that the Covid “vaccines” are hugely profit-making hoaxes (and manifestations of galactically immense crimes) that already have harmed many of Moderna’s Pfizer’s, and J&J’s victims and threaten to harm hugely many more, long-term.

    My first two earlier comments
    • (a) anticipated that the Covid “vaccine” makers’ and the FDA. CDC, NIH, and Fauci will assert alternative false “explanations” of how the “vaccines” “work,”
    • (b) imagined a few alternative faux explanations the Covid “vaccine” makers’ and the FDA. CDC, NIH, and Fauci might assert to a gulli
