“As things stand at the moment, it is hard to deny the possibility of a correlation between mass vaccination and a sharp spike in Covid-19 cases in both Israel and Britain.” Gilad Atzmon

Imagine if the Covid vaccine actually contributed to the spread of the infection rather than stopping it. Can you imagine what a catastrophe that would be? Unfortunately, there are signs that that is precisely what is happening in the countries that have implemented the most aggressive vaccination programs.

Take Israel, for example. In the last 6 weeks, Israel has vaccinated roughly 40% of its population of 9 million people including nearly all of those in the most vulnerable age group of 60 years and older. It’s quite an achievement. Also–according to Dr Daniel Landsberger, Chief physician Maccabi Healthcare Services–

“Only 1 in 10,000 who got the vaccine got infected with Covid and none of them have been hospitalized. We are hoping by the middle of March, we will be able to return to normal life.” (NBC News)

It all sounds so good that one can only wonder why vaccinations have recently slowed to a crawl and the government is now researching ways to coerce the public into getting the jab.

Why would that be? Why would people hesitate to get vaccinated in the face of such a stunning success? Check out this clip from an article at The Times of Israel titled “As demand for vaccines plummets, Israel may resort to incentive programs”:

“With Israel’s world-leading vaccination drive slowing because of a collapse in demand, the Health Ministry and some private firms are looking at ways to incentivize Israelis to go and get their shots…. it was decided that a plan would be presented for the approval of the Finance Ministry, which would allow HMOs to give staff members who persuade patients to get vaccinated a salary bonus.

The Givatayim municipality will offer a municipal tax deduction for every family that has been vaccinated.
Pelephone, Yes! and Bezeq International announced a collaboration with the “Latet” charity firm in which they will donate a hot meal to those in need for each of the 4,000 employees of the companies who get vaccinated….

There have also been worrying signs of medical workers declining to be vaccinated.”… demand has dropped by 50 percent since a record 240,000 Israelis were vaccinated on January 12. “We have no explanation for why people are not coming….(“As demand for vaccines plummets, Israel may resort to incentive programs“, The Times of Israel)

How do you like that: Free meals, tax deductions and even lavish salary bonuses. Who wouldn’t jump at the opportunity to inject themselves with an experimental concoction that was rushed through development in just 8 months, precluded critical animal trials, never finished Phase 3 human trials and which has been more extravagantly marketed than any medical product in history?

Are they all conspiracy nuts and anti-vaxxers or they just ordinary people who follow the news and draw their own conclusions about the efficacy and safety of these “groundbreaking” mRNA vaccines? Author Alex Berenson summed it up like this on his Twitter account last week:

“The vaccine campaign has collapsed in Israel. Israelis are NOT anti-vaccine. Up to 98% get normal childhood vaccines. But they know the Covid vaccines are different. And they are smart enough to wonder why their epidemic won’t end almost two months into mass vaccinations.” Alex Berenson

This is precisely the point: There’s no indication that Israel’s vaccine strategy is working, in fact, quite the contrary. Check out this blurb from an article by Gilad Atzmon at Unz Review:

“Ynet points out that… after six weeks in lockdown the situation didn’t improve at all. Despite Israel leading the world mass vaccination experiment, its COVID transmission rate is among the worst in the Western world.

The Ynet article stresses that “tomorrow at 7:00 AM the third lockdown will end, a month and a half after it was imposed – and the COVID data is much worse today compared with the situation at the beginning… at the point of departure of the third lockdown at the end of December, the rate of positive tests was 4.9%, the number of critical hospitalized patients was then 949, the number of verified cases was 4,010….. On Tuesday, the positive rate was 8.9%, the number of patients was 1,101 and the number of verified cases was 7,183. Even the R number, which determines whether the epidemic is spreading, has risen again to 1 in recent days.” (“Israel’s Third Lockdown- a Spectacle of Failure”, The Unz Review)

Okay, so by every objective standard, the situation is worse than it was before. And what’s particularly concerning, is that the vaccine could very well be playing a part in the perpetuation of the crisis.

How could that be? Here’s what the author says:

“The combined number of vaccinated Israelis and those who recovered from COVID in the past should have provided Israel with a relatively strong herd immunity, enough to defeat the virus or at least reduce its reproduction rate. But the facts on the ground suggest the complete opposite. The transmission rate in Israel is higher than pretty much anywhere else. In fact the troubling correlation between mass vaccination and illness suggests that the more you vaccinate, the more COVID cases you find...

In short, if we learn something from the ‘Israeli experiment’ it may be possible to conclude that the less you vaccinate, the more healthy your community is as a whole.

Considering the validated fact that the vaccinated are proved to be relatively immune at least at the present time, the only explanation (I can think of) for spike of cases, deaths and mutants in mass vaccinated states is the horrifying possibility that the vaccinated are actually spreading the virus and especially its mutants (particularly the British one). This possibility must be investigated. It is supported by established data collected in mass vaccinating countries, such as the UAE, USA, Britain and Portugal. Shortly after a mass vaccination campaign is launched, we detect a sharp exponential rise in cases and, tragically, deaths to follow….” (“Israel’s Third Lockdown- a Spectacle of Failur e”, The Unz Review)

This is an important point that needs to be emphasized: The only place we’re seeing these ” sharp exponential rise in cases” is in the “mass vaccinating countries, such as the UAE, USA, Britain and Portugal.” Interestingly, the sharp uptick in cases does not follow the normal trajectory of respiratory infections. British Data Analyst Joel Smalley produced an informative video on this topic on January 30 where he showed a sudden spike in deaths uniformly across England shortly after the release of the vaccine, that is, the deaths seemed to correspond to the launching of vaccine. (England Mortality Analysis, Joel Smalley: See minutes 22 to 27)

Here’s more from Atzmon:

“Since Israel launched its vast vaccination campaign in December, it has been witnessing an exponential rise in COVID-19 cases and deaths....the Orthodox Jewish communities that were vaccinated en masse saw COVID cases rise 16-fold, while Israeli Arabs who at large refrained from vaccination saw numbers of COVID cases dropping sharply….

Examining the situation in the countries that are engaged in mass vaccination such as Israel, Britain, the USA and the UAE reveal that these countries witnessed a clear decline in COVID cases and deaths during late November and early December. However, just a few days after those countries launched their vaccination campaigns, the numbers of COVID cases and consequently deaths went through the roof….

It is crucial to verify, for instance, whether the rise in lethal mutations that we have seen in Britain is related to mass vaccination and the vaccine trials that have been taking place in the kingdom since the summer. The rapid change in the age of COVID-19 cases which we see in Israel and Britain also correlates with mass vaccination.”
(A Brief Examination of Some Facts Related to Mass Vaccination“, The Unz Review)

So what might be causing this phenomenon? Is there some agent in the vaccine that can be neutralized so that people can be safely inoculated without fear of harm or transmission?

I have no idea, but there was an interesting article at Children’s Health Defense last month that seemed to suggest that this sort of thing could happen. Regrettably, the author provides no remedy for vaccine-generated crisis that could potentially increase the death toll by many millions of people. Here’s an extended excerpt from the article titled “In Rush to Create Magic-Bullet COVID Vaccines, Have We Made Matters Worse?”

“Study that found vaccines that don’t prevent viral transmission may accelerate evolution of more virulent strains could mean leading vaccine candidates may make COVID crisis worse….

When a virus infects a population of humans, only those viruses that have a living human host will survive. If a virus is so pathogenic that it kills the human it infected, it dies too. Therefore, mortality of the host kills the most severe forms of any virus over time. Infection rates may go up, but mortality goes down.

In a 2015 study published in PLOS Biology, researchers hypothesized that vaccination can subvert this process by allowing more virulent (i.e., more pathogenic and potentially deadly) strains of viruses to live in vaccinated hosts for prolonged time periods without killing the hosts. These vaccinated hosts, while infected, shed and spread virus, causing further transmission of the disease.

The researchers demonstrated this hypothesis with experiments on chickens vaccinated for a disease called Marek’s Disease, a viral pathogen known to decimate poultry facilities. Vaccinated chickens infected with more virulent strains of Marek’s Disease virus became infected and carried the infection over longer time periods. They also became “super spreaders” of the virus and transmitted the virus to unvaccinated chickens co-housed with those that received the vaccine.

Because of the higher virulence of the Marek’s Disease that was spread by the vaccinated chickens, the unvaccinated chickens usually died soon after infection.

However, the partial immunity afforded to the vaccinated chickens prolonged their survival and extended the period in which they were infectious and could continue to spread the disease.

Without vaccination, these more virulent strains of Marek’s Disease would die off with their host and would no longer circulate the virus in the population. Instead, vaccinated chickens became the perfect host to harbor the virus, allowing it to multiply and spread.

This begs the question regarding the use of vaccines that do not prevent virus transmission or are not known to prevent virus transmission. Neither of the current COVID-19 vaccines in distribution (Pfizer and Moderna) has been shown to prevent transmission. In fact, this type of testing was not done in their rushed “warp speed” clinical studies.

Instead, both vaccines were tested for their ability to prevent more severe symptoms. In both instances, some vaccinated patients were still infected. Without prevention of transmission, these individuals spread the virus that was intended to be eradicated. As the authors of the 2015 research state in their summary:

“When vaccines prevent transmission, as is the case for nearly all vaccines used in humans, this type of evolution towards increased virulence is blocked. But when vaccines leak, allowing at least some pathogen transmission, they could create the ecological conditions that would allow hot strains to emerge and persist.

With the emergence of more infectious forms of COVID-19 circulating in Europe, it seems we may have created the perfect storm to prolong the pandemic, rather than curtail it — because the vaccines were developed and tested based on the original form of circulating COVID-19, not the new strains.

In our rush to create magic-bullet vaccines, have we instead created a scenario to cause more pain and suffering?” (“In Rush to Create Magic-Bullet COVID Vaccines, Have We Made Matters Worse?”, Brian Hooker Ph.D, Children’s Health Defense)

I have nothing to add.

  4. Since the faulty PCR test is being used as the measure for how things are going, it should be no surprise that things are getting worse, at least statistically, because that test is probably picking up the vaccinated folks as infected, when they aren’t.

    This whole fiasco was created with a faulty test at its core. As others have stated, if they were to stop testing the pandemic would evaporate.

  5. roonaldo says:

    On 02/19/21, Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorsky said on CNBC that we’ll need yearly vaccinations to stay current with the mutant covid strains “just like the flu,” which is a sham scaremongering, moneymaking deal all its own. Of course, Fauci claims covid will be “endemic” and things will be normal never again–which he and his pals are doing their utmost to achieve.

    The numbers of “cases” and “covid deaths” have been cooked from the start and the PCR test, as roatanbill points out in comment #4, is pure horseshit when put to this use.

    The Children’s Health Defense put up an article about the polyethylene glycol (PEG) used to encapsulate the mRNA, and that, if I recall correctly, 82 percent of people are sensitive to it and 8 percent are very sensitive to it, thus, the high incidence of allergic reactions.

    Now, we’re also supposed to believe that the PEG will inevitably get the mRNA into the cells and the mRNA, being unstable, will inevitably safely deteriorate after it gets the cell to produce the spike protein, which will do only good and no harm as the immune system then happily gears up to defend us and celestial harps play magical music.

    Shit–what could possibly go wrong? We’ve only just begun to see part of the surfacing Vaccine Kraken. Kudos to the author of this article. Somehow, the bastards who have brought this on humanity must be brought to justice. I’d recommend it be done at the end of a rope for the worst of ’em, Old West style.

    Hmmm …

    Will the mRNA jabs be pulled due to potential long term harm? We will have to watch closely to see if major players (Gates, Fauci, WHO, etc.) become very quiet as the [apparent] plan takes shape. If the mRNA therapy sheds – and contaminates the blood supply – then it looks like mass harm, because there aren’t sufficient medical facilities to prevent it and up-front therapies (HCQ, Ivermectin, zinc, etc.) are restricted.

    If the mRNA therapy is not withdrawn, then the situation begins to appear as a slide from philanthropy and professional medical management toward something more akin to manslaughter, conspiracy to commit manslaughter, conspiracy to commit international genocide, etc. This seems a far cry from the original intent of granting vaccine promoters/manufacturers immunity from prosecution over the effects of vaccines (even though mRNA jabs are more likely gene therapy and not vaccines).

    But then again, maybe this is part of the on-going low-level war strategy between the US and The City, EU, China, and Russia in order to maintain the reserve status of the US dollar.

  8. Stopping here for one truth bomb, will not be back to look for replies: The reason COVID-19 vaccine trials don’t test to see if they’re “sterilizing” (stops transmission) vs. “leaky” with humans is that that’s very hard and not required for approval. Especially since at this stage leaky vaccines are still quite useful; see the Salk style polio vaccine for an example of one we’re still using, and the tradeoffs with the sterilize your gut Sabin style vaccine. You can address this if you’re willing to do “challenge” experiments where you expose vaccinated humans to this lethal pathogen which the West has by and large become too soft to do. Although the U.K. and maybe the Netherlands have been talking about doing this.

  11. Greg S. says:

    Here’s a layman’s breakdown of how the COVID-19 mRNA gene therapy works (as I understand it, open to feedback): the mRNA gets into your cells and takes them over (just like a virus does) and gets them to start producing a ‘spike protein’ that matches a protein identified on a COVID-19 virus. There is no ‘off switch’ on this spike protein production. The body’s immune system starts fighting this foreign spike protein that the body itself is producing, in theory “learning” to fight COVID-19 in the process.

    The conspiracy theorists say that this will act like a ticking time bomb, and future exposures to corona-viruses and vaccines could trigger extreme health issues including death. All of these deaths are and will be listed as “COVID deaths.” That’s why COVID will never end. That’s why they are already pre-programming people that masks will never come off, distancing will never end, etc. That’s not a conspiracy, that’s right out Biden’s Press Secretary. Even worse, look for them to turn the blame for all this not to the vaccines, but instead to people who refuse the vaccine and “right wingers.”

    Remember that ‘vaccine’ makers have 100% liability protection against all harm caused to people.

    The increase in cases following injection in the countries mentioned is not conjecture. The data strongly suggests that vaccination is having an impact. I believe the outcome will be blamed on the new “variants”, which will be used to obscure the truth. Whether the vaccines boost transmission or lead to pathogenic priming, the result will be the same: More people will contract the infection, hospitalizations will rise, and more people will die. Check out this blurb from Gilad Atzmon’s Twitter account:

    My prediction: In Israel mass vaccination campaign has collapsed. Numbers of cases/death will start to drop. In Britain 600.000 were vaccinated 2 days ago. In the coming days (I believe) we will see panic over mutants & cases. As always, I really hope to be wrong…

  13. See https://time.com/5930060/israel-covid-vaccine-palestinians/ Very Interesting. Point 1. The Israeli Government is very cunning and part of the Global Control Grid ( Look what they did for Globalism with 9/11 ) So they know the “pandemic” is actually not very lethal, it is a fake pandemic. The the Israeli Government know the real ( if not placebo injections ) are very dangerous. Why would they Doom their own people. 2. Is the IDF really getting these dangerous vaccinations – I would think not 3. Certain groups that cause the LIKUD problems may be getting the vaccinations like the Orthodox Jews 4. Seems like a fake out to eventually get the Palestinians vaccinated, sick, killed or sterilized See ” The Palestinian Authority has made efforts to import vaccines independent of Israel. Its health ministry on Jan 11 announced it had given emergency approval to Russia’s Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine for use in areas it administers under limited Palestinian self-rule; it also says it has struck a deal with AstraZeneca for vaccines it expects to receive in late February. On top of that and the first shipment of vaccines under the WHO’s COVAX program could become available as early as February.” Can a common Palestinian trust the Palestinian Authority ( the Palestinian Authority officials would not be there unless Bibi wanted them there… very easy to take out with MOSSAD wet work ) The Sputnik V Covid vac is an adenovirus thing which is STILL A RECOMBINANT. See I am saying for the most part the Israeli vaccination program is some kind of bluff YES? OR they could give the Palestinians some kind of real very deadly virus or just some kind of mass poisoning via sarine gas or other and kill them off and say it was because the Palestinians were not vaccinated….. they could get rid of the Palestinians either way.

  17. roonaldo says:
    @That Would Be Telling

    More a smokescreen than a “truth bomb.” Yours is an apples/oranges comparison.

    The Sabin attenuated/live virus is “useful” because it doesn’t require refrigeration and can be taken orally. According to a history.com article of 03/25/2020, it causes about a dozen cases of polio yearly, fortunately not very transmissable. Still, the WHO argues for it to be stopped, since it prevents polio from being eradicated. It was many years in development and testing, as was the Salk vaccine utilizing the dead polio virus.

    An interesting article titled “How the polio virus occasionally becomes dangerous” by Kelly Malcolm dated 11/18/2020 is in medicalexpress.com. They found the Sabin attenuated virus vaccine undergoes vigorous mutation in the body, and that three key mutations must occur for the virus to become dangerous.

    How many key mutations are required for the covid19 virus to transform into a critter that defeats the body’s anti spike protein response? I don’t know, but I suspect it would be fewer than that required to defeat the Sabin vaccine that utilizes the entire viral organism.

    An article appeared in rt.com today, saying that as of Jan. 31 there were 36 reports in VAERS of covid19 vaccination cases of the deadly illness where the body attacks its own blood platelets (I forget the medical term). This is what killed the 56 year old Miami Beach doctor after receiving his covid vaccination.

    How many serious illnesses will not be reported or will be classified as something other than vaccine related? I think this question answers itself, given the lies, greed, and corruption to which we are continually subjected.

    By contrast, when a bad batch of the Salk vaccine was produced, where the formaldehyde hadn’t killed the virus, and eleven people died with 200 contracting polio, vaccinations were promptly halted. That amount of mayhem won’t receive but a yawn from authorities today.

    The “vaccines” appear to be working perfectly, doing exactly what they were desigend to do- which is: to shut down the immune systems of those recieving them so that they are then , months later, far more susceptible to sickness and death from common conditions [such as the common cold, or flu] which the recipients immune system would have been, prior to recieving the “vaccine”, fully capable of fighting off.

    These mRNA concoctions are _not_ vaccines by any stretch “of the imagination. None of them are vaccines as defined by medical science , as they do not perform the tasks that normal, regular vaccines have always performed.

    They are officially called vaccines because thus defined, the manufacturers are then largely immune from lawsuits [at least in the US],when a person dies or suffers severe side effects.

    These “vaccines” are all pharmaceutical concoctions deliberately designed to make people sick and [“best case scenario”] die, most likely as part of a planned “New World Order eugenics program to “cull the herd” worldwide.

    No reported community Covid-19 cases for many months in New Zealand. No Covid-19 vaccines yet supplied. The vaccination purchased for New Zealand now banned in South Africa for being no good with the South African mutation. The South African authorities won’t admit the vaccination likely caused the mutation. I’m going to fight getting it until it becomes seriously inconvenient. By then I am hoping the vaccinations are banned. The Russian sputnik vaccination according to Israel Shamir does not affect the DNA. So hopefully it is at worst useless and might be the face saver to keep vaccinating.

  24. Who wouldn’t jump at the opportunity to inject themselves with an experimental concoction that was rushed through development in just 8 months, precluded critical animal trials, never finished Phase 3 human trials and which has been more extravagantly marketed than any medical product in history?

    “Who”

    I can think of one group in particular, which I also happen to belong to, and which is curiously missing from all discussion on this topic –

    The massive portion of the population in any given nation who have already long ago recovered from an infection.

    1) If 1/3 of the population has already become infected and naturally established immunity, why would they take any vaccine, let alone an experimental treatment.

    2) Even more importantly, why would any Govt refuse to carefully acknowledge this massive (especially in populous regions / cities) subset who have no immediate need to be injected with an experimental treatment?

    3) I am assuming that statistically valid initial testing with these treatments was preceded by screening participants for active infections, anti-bodies / T-cells due to prior infection, to ensure that the immunity to infection actually arises from the vaccine and not natural immune system activity.

    What testing establishes the validity / impact of vaccinating those who already possess natural immunity from their own innate immune system?

    4) A critical component of the experimental treatment is the longevity of the inoculation.

    There would not appear to be sufficient time to have establish from Human studies how long the manufactured immunity persists on average, so any promises in that direction are quite likely imprecise, or even guesswork.

    There is no indication that I am aware of showing that immunity resulting from a naturally defeated infection is inferior (or superior) to manufactured immunity.

    My conclusion –

    For those whose immune systems have already naturally defeated an infection, there is little reason to think that they will not do so a second time should it be necessary, and there is no reason to think at present that those who are relying on a manufactured experimental inoculation, will not need to be re-inoculated every six months or so, based upon what we currently know, meaning a 1/3 of the general population declining experimental vaccines could largely be accounted for from this subset alone.

    Doggedly refusing to acknowledge this large population subset and/or engaging in subterfuge to encourage them to take inoculations that they don’t need seem more likely designed to undermine any comparative sample pool later on down the road (natural immunity vs. inoculated experimental) than to serve a real public health process, in my view.

    The system for reporting of vaccination adverse effects (VAERS) is voluntary and estimates of the actual rate of reports for adverse reactions ranges from 1-10%. There is no liability for harm caused by vaccines so we are dependent on the rectitude of Big Pharma and the regulators they own to ensure their safety. That would be the Big Pharma that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. calls “the serial killers” for their long and well-documented history of hiding adverse effects that cause large numbers of deaths and injuries (notably, the Vioxx scandal).

  28. Herd immunity may never be achieved because high vaccination rates encourage the evolution of more severe disease-causing organisms

    • In theory, if enough people are vaccinated, herd immunity will be achieved, and chains of infection will be disrupted. In reality, a true herd immunity threshold may never be reached within normal heterogeneous populations.

    • If a true herd immunity threshold level is achieved, it will create a strong selective pressure that encourages the emergence of mutant viral strains.

    I was pondering that a while back–why the month-day-year format?

    Perhaps, I thought, it had roots when, in centuries past, most families farmed and people were closer to the natural world, making seasons and parts of seasons a focus for living and for memories–“ay, the gooseberries were in blossom when fair Kate kissed me cheek.”

    A short time after that I looked through my grandmother’s bible where she logged births, deaths, and marriages, noticing a number of events logged month and year only, the day being forgotten or unknown.

    So perhaps there is some organic logic or basis for the day to be noted secondarily to the month. Since I retired, I often lose track of what day it is, and whether I’m coming or going!

    Yes, that VAERS reports represent but one to ten percent of actual incidents is frightening. I was thinking of that when reading that from Dec 14, 2020 through Jan 31, 2021, VAERS received what, about 450 U.S. deaths possibly vaccine related? Only a few, I imagine, will receive compensation.

    RFK Jr.’s “serial killers” description of Big Pharma is apt. It appears he and the website just got banned, Twitter I think.

    California records 15,000 deaths in January, out of a total of 44,000.

    There’s been much speculation about US labs involved in the creation of the virus, and it may be so – I don’t know. But what about if there is another player, who is engaged in non-kinetic war against the US, manages well now, and has the capacity to escalate the bio-war?
    I recently read an old article in the blog of prof. Gregory Cochran, where he gives evidence that the Russians had much larger boweapon program compared to the US, the reason being they used tularema against the nazis and decided to pour funds there, the same way americans poured money in cryptography (and later NSA) because cracking the enigma proved very successful. The russians ended up with much more facilities, specialists and stockpiles for biowar. See it here: https://westhunt.wordpress.com/2012/02/02/war-in-the-east/
    My point is, what if the russians are behind this, and the west knows they can do worse? wouldn’t that explain a lot of the current madness?

    There would not appear to be sufficient time to have establish from Human studies how long the manufactured immunity persists on average, so any promises in that direction are quite likely imprecise, or even guesswork.

    What’s more, both the Pfizer and Moderna products completely skipped any animal testing on the fast track to their lucrative human market.

    Which is understandable. Before the arrival of Corona Chan, when these geniuses tested out their cutting-edge mRNA “vaccine” technology on animals, all of the test subjects died.

    So yes, the global rollout of these “vaccines” is an ongoing experiment, with the clueless masses as the unwitting guinea pigs.

    IMO it’s not really even an experiment in innoculating the population against Corona Chan, that’s just the multi-layered official narrative to keep us all off-balance.

    It’s actually a “bait & switch” play.

    The injections are the objective, they are the real plan, while Corona Chan has just furnished a convenient all-too-hysterical excuse to “jab” everyone whether we like it or not.

    … except that the Russians have already gotten rid of all their Soviet-era chemical and biological weapons under the close supervision of the OPCW, some years ago now.

    Which is in stark contrast to the USA which steadfastly maintains the largest stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons on the planet, and maintains bioweapons labs peppered around the globe and especially in a huge swathe encircling both Russia and China..

    So, no, Russian involvement probably wouldn’t explain a lot of the current madness.

  37. I just spotted this in an article by Bill Sardi at Lew Rockwell. The mRNA vaccine paves the way for this scenario:

    In the current two-shot inoculation schedule with RNA and DNA vaccines (these really aren’t vaccines, they are gene-reprogramming treatments), the first round of vaccinations will not appear to be too problematic. The second round will produce a few more side effects. The immune system is being primed so when you are infected with another corona cold virus maybe months later, your immune system will attack your inner organs and you will die of sepsis and organ failure which will appear to be unrelated to vaccination.

    The public will then be told COVID-19 mutated and turned deadly, driving even more people to get vaccinated out of fear. Police, healthcare workers, doctors, will all believe this and demonize anyone who refuses to be vaccinated because they can see the deaths right before their eyes. Americans will be dropping dead in visible numbers. The predicted “dark winter” will be upon us.

    I am not a layman in this area and the previous work attempting to make vaccines against other Corona Viruses led to serious sometime lethal consequences when the animal subjects were exposed to that specific Corona Virus. An article detailing this was published almost a year ago and the author indicated that any Corona Virus Vaccine would be high risk and therefore unlikely to be pursued.

    Ha Ha the NO LIABILITY LAWS passed by your Congressional Morons at the behest of the Corporate Swine.

    Needless to say, the Covid 19 Hoax and subsequent fiasco may become the most tragic event in all of Human history.

    From–Open Letter from the UK Medical Freedom Alliance:

    Media reports of care home outbreaks and deaths

    Multiple,similar,media reports from around the world show a pattern emerging of outbreaks of Covid-19 and clusters of deaths occurring in care homes in the week or two AFTER the vaccine has been rolled out to residents there.

    This pattern has been also reported by many whistle-blowers on social media

    .2. Regulators, doctors and others are sounding the alarm

    Statements from national regulators and other official organisations, as well as doctors speaking out to raise serious concerns and to call for investigations to be carried out.

    3.Epidemiological Evidence

    There is strong epidemiological evidence, from around the world,to support the hypothesis that the Covid-19vaccine rollout may be linked with increased deaths in certain age groups.

    I want to quote a short excerpt from your comment since it is the most succinct I have read on the topic. I assume you are talking about ADE (antibody dependent enhancement) which is hard for us non-science people to grasp. Here’s the quote:

    “The so-called ‘vaccine’ is n mRNA cocktail that transfect people’s cells to use their own cellular machinery to produce the spike protein of coronaviruses. The spike protein is what helps the virus defeat the body’s first line of immune defense – cellular immunity. With this spike protein being pumped into people’s bloodstreams, the body’s second line of immune defense kicks in – antibody production. The body is now primed so that the next time the person catches a cold, or any coronavirus, the body’s first line of defense has already been compromised by the mRNA cocktail, which means the body’s second line of defense will kick in hard. This produces a cytokine storm in the body and the person gets very sick, and maybe dies.

    This, of course, is the beauty of the plan. It will be the virus that is blamed for the sickness and not the mRNA cocktail, which means that every year people will be desperately lining up to take the very poison that is the root cause of the problem – the mRNA cocktail euphemistically called a vaccine. We will then have a situation where large parts of the population will be culled and the remainder will be held in thrall. Alongside this, of course, will the steady implementation of even more draconian totalitarianism, all in the name of fighting the common cold.”

    This process has actually taken place in animal tests (ferrets) that were given mRNA injections. The ferrets died. All of them.

    So the question is: Have our ruling elites degenerated to the point where they would actually prescribe vaccines to millions of people knowing that these same vaccines will cause significant bodily harm or death to the recipients?

    In my mind, the answer to that question is “Yes”

    Mike Whitney,

    My short answer to your question at the end is the same as yours.

    But there is also a longer answer. I view “evil acts’ arising from some combination of greed, fear and stupidity. For any individual committing an evil act it is difficult to assess the relative proportions of those three. For the ruling elite, greed is certainly there in large proportion, but I do not discount the other two as strong motivators. People like Gates, who is certainly not the brightest bulb in the box from what I have seen of him, may actually believe he is doing a good thing, hence the stupidity quotient might actually be quite high for him.

    As for ADE, I think ADE is part of what arises from the mRNA cocktail, but not the whole of it. It is possible to get ADE without using an mRNA sequence that codes for the spike protein. I think that the spike protein was deliberately chosen because that is the mechanism a coronavirus uses to by-pass cellular defenses to insert itself into the cells of the host. The mRNA of this cocktail is designed to make the spike protein on a continuous basis, or at least until the foreign mRNA degrades, the degradation time being unknown to me. With a pile of this spike protein circulating around the blood stream, the spike protein could facilitate transfer of other viruses across the cell membrane, so viruses that were previously easily handled by the host’s cellular immunity could get a free ride into the host’s cells where before they could not. This would result in massive antibody production to exposure to just about any virus, and maybe other environmental insults too. Massive antibody production can lead to the cytokine storm.

    There is also all sorts of other junk in these cocktails, like PEG (polyethylene glycol, that can also cause immunological problems. It is impossible to say what immune destroying synergies are going to arise from the combinations.

    However, it is crystal clear to me from all the mask mandates, lockdowns and other soul and immune system destroying policies that have been implemented, the plan is to destroy people’s immune systems thereby making real pandemics inevitable.

    The injections are the objective, they are the real plan

    This, in a nut shell.

    “The protection from being infected does not last long,” said Dr. Oluwatosin Goje, OB/GYN and infectious disease specialist at the Cleveland Clinic.

    Immunity from the vaccine lasts longer than natural immunity, but we don’t know how much longer, Goje said.

    We won’t know how long immunity lasts after vaccination until we have more data on how well COVID-19 vaccines work in real-world conditions, the CDC said.

    Great comments again
    Thanks.

    The work Gates has done is quite extraordinary. He figured out what would be needed by way of infrastructure in order to achieve his depopulation plans. Whether one agrees that that IS his plan or not, one should be able to see that he has put himself in a position to make it happen.

    How is it that he is connected to so many critical organizations, institutions, businesses, governments, media and political leaders around the world? If he was just a humanitarian, he might have helped Jimmy Carter build houses for the poor, but, NO, Gates set up this massive, global infrastructure that puts him at the epicenter of world health….

    Why?

    and here’s the interesting part: The vaccine provides him with (potential) access to to the personal biology of 7 billion people on the planet. Was that the plan or just a coincidence?

    So, I have three questions for you:

    1– Do you think Gates is doing what he is doing for purely, selfless humanitarian reasons?

    2– What do you think is really in the vaccines?

    3–Are the vaccines an attempt to save humanity from the throes of a ferocious pandemic or are they a springboard for Gates achieving his political vision?

    I do not believe that Gates is acting alone, and I believe that the agenda of the ruling elites has been slowly implemented over many decades, if not many centuries, or even many millennia. However, like all ruling organizations, there are internal common agendas as well as internal differences, and there are external resistors, so we’ll see how all this pans out.

    “and here’s the interesting part: The vaccine provides him with (potential) access to to the personal biology of 7 billion people on the planet. Was that the plan or just a coincidence?”

    Do you want me to get into my metaphysical/religious beliefs, because this question cannot be answered by me without doing that?

    As to the numbered questions:

    1. No.

    2. I think they have been upfront with a number of things that are in the mRNA cocktails, but whether they have disclosed everything, I do not know. It would relatively easy for any reasonably well-equipped analytical chemistry lab to analyze a sample to find out, with the caveat that not all shipments/vials may actually be the same. It would require several labs doing analysis on different shipments to get a broad picture. I have not seen this work done by national governments or universities anywhere, which makes me highly suspicious.

    3. Political vision, but not necessarily of Gates alone.

    All I can find so far is individual cases being reported. Can you supply a time series graph showing this steep upward curve following vaccination.

    1. If this was first a US bioattack on China and Iran, or at any rate if the Chinese and Iranian governments believe it was (it would certainly be quite a coincidence if the first outbreak was an accidental release from the Wuhan lab and the second just happens to hit the Tehran government sector), they likely would scramble to deploy the same policies as the US lackey WHO has more or less prescribed for the West and the entire world. (I say “more or less” since the WHO has had the same problem keeping a consistent party line as Fauci and so many other impresarios of the Covid terrorism campaign.)

    Other US targets like Russia, North Korea and Venezuela would do the same.

    2. Are they generally using the same fake PCR test as the West? (I don’t know the answer to that.) If so they’d likely believe the same grossly misdiagnosed and inflated case and death numbers as the West.

    At any rate, believing themselves the targets of a US bioattack and therefore actually being in WWIII already (though for now they’re still keeping any such belief quiet since they don’t yet feel ready to counterattack), it’s politically expedient to maximize their alleged Covid death toll, which they’ll later call mass murder.

    3. These governments basically have the same totalitarian aspirations as those of the US and UK, all modern governments inherently do, so they’re using the Covid terror toward the same goals of social control. So they have that same incentive to manipulate and inflate the official death count.

    You raise a lot of points, certainly worth thinking through.

    A straightforward bio-attack on China would be an incredibly stupid thing to do, it would be difficult to prove admittedly but with no realistic chance of it being restricted to China I can’t see any sense in it.

    A bio-attack on the whole world, the intent being to close down industrial output and reduce population growth globally seems to make more sense. Targeting China first would make sense because China’s economic output is growing very quickly, plus the advantage that it would obscure the origin of the disease and set up the Chinese as potential scapegoats.

    Event 201 looks very suspicious given the timing, we know how fond they are of having ‘drills’ prior to their little ‘surprises’. Whether Covid-19 is a natural event that is being seized upon as an opportunity to initiate their ‘great reset’ or whether the virus was deliberately contrived we will probably never know for sure. Either way, suspicions are not facts.

    It can hardly be disputed that globalisation has rendered the human race far more vulnerable to the spread of disease. Globalisation is also responsible for the vast increase in the power of the oligarchs (note how the word is usually reserved for the mega-rich in non-western aligned countries) I think the lesson we should learn from this ‘event’ is just how toxic globalisation has been for the human race.

    Globalisation has undermined democracy by putting yet more power into the hands of the unelected and greatly increased economic inequality. It is bad for the environment as goods are produced ever further from the point of consumption. It is bad for our various cultures and traditions (multiculturalism should really be called uni-culturalism) Now it has become obvious that globalisation is a palpable health risk.

  69. Penny says:

    Hello there. I’ve been a nurse for 18 years and spent most of my career in critical care. I wanted to point out a few things.
    1. The fact that cases rose in the week after vaccines were initiated is likely unrelated to the vaccines, as citizens would not yet have developed immunity. Efficacy data did not indicate lessening of severe covid19 illness until after the second injection. We probably need to focus on the time frame after the second vaccine.
    2. As far as the vaccine causing mutations, I think that is unlikely. They could however lead to a rise of viral variations that the vaccine isn’t protective against. That could be good or bad…time will tell. Viral mutation happens with every person who contracts the virus. Every human alters the virus to some extent.
    3. The clinical data on the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines is pretty pitiful. The 94-95% efficacy rate was deduced based on some pretty non-scientific data spinning. This percentage was based on volunteers who hadn’t reported symptoms of covid19 at that point. (from a list of specific symptoms which did not include diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, all common symptoms.) The trial designs didn’t call for regular screening of volunteers to test for Sars-coV-2 infection via PCR. So it should say 94-95% of volunteers had not reported specific covid19 symptoms as of 2 weeks after the second vaccine.
    4. The vaccines effectiveness was against severe covid19 illness, NOT against testing positive for Sars-coV-2 or transmitting the virus to others. So what may result, is vaccinated people having a higher incidence of asymptomatic infection (vs the unvaccinated population) and because they aren’t having symptoms, they believe the vaccine is preventing Sars-coV-2 infection. Because of this error in understanding,
    they may interact with others without masks, distancing, strict hand hygiene etc.

    A golden opportunity to ask Mr. Whitney how his Sweden is doing.
    Chuckle!

    Fair enough. I have been a big supporter of Sweden’s approach (of no lockdown), from the very beginning, so how are they doing??

    Pretty good actually.

    As of today– according to Statistica– Sweden ranks 18th on the list of countries as far as deaths per million.

    That is -1,202 deaths per million.

    Belgium, Slovenia, UK, Czechia, Italy, Bosnia, Portugal, USA, North Macedonia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Spain, Moldova, Mexico, Peru, Panama, Croatia, all did worse than Sweden..

    https://www.statista.com/statistics/1104709/coronavirus-deaths-worldwide-per-million-inhabitants/

    What these figures prove is that Sweden settled on the right strategy. Many of the countries that imposed harsh lockdowns, did noticeably worse which proves that Sweden’s Anders Tegnell was right when he said that Lockdowns would not stop the spread of the infection.

    Nothing was gained by throwing people out of work, mandating masks, closing schools and churches and sending the economy into a downward spiral. That was not a reasonable option then, and it is not a reasonable option now.

    The MSM of course, continues to lambaste the Swedish approach as a failure, but what would you expect?? The media marches in lockstep with their elite owners who want to restructure the global system so it better meets their needs. The Big Money guys need to belittle Sweden so it looks like their-own authoritarian approach is the only viable choice. But examine the figures for yourself: Sweden has proved its point simply by doing as well or better than the others. The numbers don’t lie.

    There are few open-and-shut cases we can cite where the preponderance of evidence favors one side over the other.

    This is clearly one of those cases.

    Sweden’s way was the right way.

    Two Swedish investigating media groups have exposed a group that deliberately spread misinformation to international media in efforts to discredit the Swedish Corona strategy. They have succeeded with this in Time, Science, Washington Post, among others.

    So, a group of back-stabbing Swedes were actually smearing their own country for a few bucks and a pat on the head.

    “The vaccines effectiveness was against severe covid19 illness, NOT against testing positive for Sars-coV-2 or transmitting the virus to others. So what may result, is vaccinated people having a higher incidence of asymptomatic infection (vs the unvaccinated population) and because they aren’t having symptoms, they believe the vaccine is preventing Sars-coV-2 infection. Because of this error in understanding,
    they may interact with others without masks, distancing, strict hand hygiene etc.”

    That message exists only as the finest of fine print. For the less-informed masses to believe the opposite certainly is not an “error of understanding”, but the result of a lie systematically propagated, explicitly and especially implicitly, by governments and media, that getting this gene-engineering injection not only will protect the injectee but will prevent them from being a spreader.

    Otherwise why would there be such general propaganda about how getting an injection isn’t just a personal choice but the “socially responsible” thing to do. Why would there be any hint of it becoming necessary as a condition of employment or travel.

    The fact is, as you say, getting this injection is a purely personal calculation of what one believes about the danger of Covid itself to themselves, weighed against any downside of the injection.

    The fact that governments, corporations and media systematically lie to the opposite is just further proof of their gross bad faith and evil intent, and further proof that the entire Covid terrorism onslaught had an ulterior motive from day one.

  74. @MarkU

    I agree 100% on globalization. The primary short-run political goal of the whole Covid terrorism assault is to gain the powers and pretext to suppress the rising anti-globalist surge which we see in many forms all over the world.

    After long pondering over why the masses have so enthusiastically embraced the Covid cult, in a kind of religious ecstasy, after defeating through indifference so many previous attempts of the system to get this kind of totalitarian social control campaign going, I think the answer is that people sense the globalist-technocratic system is tottering on account of its inherent economic unsustainability and ecological blowback and collapse. Since most people want to believe in globalization, they’ve embraced total submission and obedience to the Covid directive as a kind of superstitious ritual they think will stave off economic and ecological collapse.

    They don’t consciously think this of course, but their entire psychology has focused all their free-floating fears on the Covid cathexis, and in this way they attain the hope that if they wear face diapers, engage in hex spacing and get a gene-engineering injection, and whatever else the TV commands, everything – in the big sense of the word- will be OK.

    Of course the exact opposite is the truth; they’re only hastening their own total socioeconomic liquidation and loss of all political rights and freedom.

    As for economic liquidation, what you say here – “A bio-attack on the whole world, the intent being to close down industrial output” – was I think the immediate proximate goal of the system’s terrorist campaign. The global economy was in immediate financial crisis as well as facing permanent general collapse. Covid was used to perform a controlled demolition of the global economy in order to stave off a 2008 style chaotic collapse and through artificial destruction to open up new avenues for capitalist action, much like war often has done. It was history’s most extreme and all-comprehensive disaster capitalist campaign.

    Needless to say, any regime of gene-engineering injections called “vaccines” is intended to continue all these programs of social and economic control and destructibility at will, not to end them.

    I noticed that after the comment posted, and commented immediately after, that 02/09/21 was the correct date. Apologies for my poor proofreeding.

  76. Just my opinion from experience getting the infection more than once in months, and actually being in very close working distance of this virus, from isolation through animal studies up to epidemiology.
    The main opinion presented in the original essay of Mike Whitney is that incomplete vaccinantions relieve the evolutionary pressure to the natural process of a hyper-infective but non-pathogenic clade replacing all others. I see no logical thread in this.

    Antibody-dependent enhancement is a much greater risk but we will not come to see that, only like 8 months from here in vaccinated countries. There indeed were some ADE tests on rhesus monkeys but only for 2 months during both mRNA vaccine developments.

    However there is a much more fundamental question known by almost all field vets.

    Just check out Tizard`s paper in the July 2020 issue of the journal Vaccine.
    Vaccine development against coronaviruses is one of the most futile endeavours. Be it rabies, measles, or even HepC, there are ways to safe and effective vaccines that are virtually harmless.
    Coronaviruses are not of this type, and from the head start much more attention should have been paid to the quite numerous failures of veterinary coronavirus vaccine development efforts.

    Herd immunity against coronaviruses is also quite hard to find anywhere historically. I would be glad to hear about that from any farm/household animal population, too. A little bit like trying to make a vaccine against African swine fever or claim herd immunity to the common cold.

    It is difficult to accept, but letting our immune system do its work with external help from virucidal and immune strengthening agents (yes these exist) is the good solution. Vaccinated or not, the infection will return in cycles of months according to evidence with other human coronaviruses.

    I am currently working on finding out if those vaccinated who are infected after their vaccination has taken effect, would also carry the virus in their white blood, lung and intestinal cells as it is the case with natural infections. The first, acute phase can be quite effectively contained if treated early I think. Look to Bangladesh, Turkey or India distributing their treatment pill kits for pennies or even free.

    For me, the second phase (“subacute” or “chronic” covid) means more, with a plethora of mostly platelet- and endothelial autoimmunity-related symptoms like depression (brain microemboli), stroke, heart and vein problems, intestinal inflammations and muscle inflammation. It is yet to see if the vaccines will prevent these. But only 3-5 years of time will tell.

  79. ruffsoft says:

    The evidence refutes these claim of the vaccine causing Covid….there is zero evidence of that and here what the most recent study found: “The new Israeli study looked at national health statistics for people 60 years and older, who received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine first because of their high risk. Analyzing data from six weeks into the vaccination campaign, when the majority of people that age had been vaccinated, they found that the number of new Covid-19 cases dropped by 41 percent compared to three weeks earlier…..That group also experienced a 31 percent drop in hospitalizations from the coronavirus, and a drop of 24 percent of those who became critically ill.”

    From “Israel’s Vaccination Results Point a Way Out of Virus Pandemic
    Covid cases fell dramatically and quickly among people who were vaccinated, Israeli studies found. It’s the strongest evidence yet that a robust vaccination program can tame the pandemic.” https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/05/world/middleeast/israel-virus-vaccination.html

    Vox presents more evidence the vaccination program is a model for the world:
    “Maccabi Health Services, one of Israel’s four health maintenance organizations (HMOs), tracked 163,000 Israelis who had received both of the two required doses of the Pfizer vaccine; only 31 of those people tested positive for Covid-19, compared to an unvaccinated sample in which about 6,500 did.

    According to data from the Israeli Ministry of Health, 531 of 750,000 fully vaccinated people over 60 years old tested positive for Covid-19 — which is just 0.07 percent. Out of the people who tested positive, only 38 were hospitalized, with symptoms ranging from moderate to critical. Another Israeli HMO, Clalit, found that Covid-19 positivity decreased by 33 percent among 200,000 people 14 days after they’d received just the first Pfizer dose compared to the same number of unvaccinated people.”

    The recent rise in cases is among the younger and those not yet or unwilling to be vaccinated; among those vaccinated, the results are outstanding.

  80. ruffsoft says:

    On the date the 2nd shots (at end of January) took effect, the sharp rise, beginning early December that started prior to the vaccination program which started early January, has sharply dropped, from 79 deaths on January 25th to 21 on February 12, coinciding with the date that the full vaccination took effect. All the studies show a huge success!
    Here is the evidence reported by the NYTimes: “Covid cases fell dramatically and quickly among people who were vaccinated, Israeli studies found. It’s the strongest evidence yet that a robust vaccination program can tame the pandemic……Cases of Covid-19 and hospitalizations dropped dramatically among people who were vaccinated within just a few weeks, according to new studies in Israel, where a rapid vaccine rollout has made it a kind of test laboratory for the world. And early data suggests that the vaccines are working nearly as well in practice as they did in clinical trials….The new Israeli study looked at national health statistics for people 60 years and older, who received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine first because of their high risk. Analyzing data from six weeks into the vaccination campaign, when the majority of people that age had been vaccinated, they found that the number of new Covid-19 cases dropped by 41 percent compared to three weeks earlier.

    That group also experienced a 31 percent drop in hospitalizations from the coronavirus, and a drop of 24 percent of those who became critically ill.”

    Vox reports on other studies that show outstanding results:
    ” Maccabi Health Services, one of Israel’s four health maintenance organizations (HMOs), tracked 163,000 Israelis who had received both of the two required doses of the Pfizer vaccine; only 31 of those people tested positive for Covid-19, compared to an unvaccinated sample in which about 6,500 did.

    Those are the fact overlooked while the explanation for the previous rise (now reversed) has to do with those who have not yet been or are unwilling to be vaccinated, a younger group accouting for most of the new cases.

    From the “tests” which are supposedly used to diagnose the problem in the first place, which clearly are not fit for purpose as no CV-19 has ever been actually isolated and sequenced, to the previous mass flu vaccination of those who subsequently go on to become “infected” with coronavirus, as evidenced by the DoD study last year which showed a 36% increase in the likelihood of diagnosis of covid in those who had previously been exposed to the flu vaccine; to the focus on diagnosis and fearmongering and vaccination instead of a focus on using tried and tested prophylactic and treatment options such as vitamins D and zinc and OH – chloroquine, and those only in the population group, ie the elderly and otherwise-sick, which is most at risk of any seasonal infection, and to the wholesale destruction of the social and economic fabric of society in response to a condition with a minimal fatality rate; in all these things, we see the malign influence, not of science per se, but the Great Reset theoreticians such as Klaus Schwab and that man whose name should never be mentioned except as a curse, ie Mr William Gates III.

    As I have previously reported:

    Well, It sure as hell appears that the vaccines are killing many more people than they are reporting because on November 16, 2020 there were 2,487,350 annual total deaths until November 16,2020. Verses 2.7 million to 2.9 million total deaths per year between 2015 and 2019. On December 22,2021, they report that there have been 3.2 million total deaths in America. So, between November 16,2020, and December 22,2021 there were 712,650 deaths. So, once again, medical error is the third leading cause of death in America, but they are claiming that it is covid. It is their treatment and prevention of covid that is responsible for far more deaths than “covid”! Of course they claim that the Novemeber numbers might not be accurate, because it is nearly impossible for the government employees to be able to count to over two million and get it right the first time. That is just expecting far more from government employees than they are capable of doing!

    Since I have been posting these links, the Global Research link has been removed from its website. Apparently the univerisities do not want people to know that they intend to sue the CDC for someting that they were guilty of colluding with them on. I did manage to find 
    Dr. Dereck Knauss’s conclusions in this article authored by him, but it does not mention the lawsuits by the seven universities. 

    https://libertyinternational.wordpress.com/category/health/

    I also discovered that in 2017, the Trump administration issued an edict that all conversations by any scientist that works for the government, including the CDC employees must be cleared through the Atlanta Communications office, which was then required to be cleared by Mike Pence after the scamdemic, according to Harvard Law Edu:

    “Motivating the Knight Institute’s concern in this instance is a record of severe restrictions on the rights of government scientists to speak freely to the press. In 2017, Axios published an email from Jeffrey Lancashire, a public affairs officer, to the National Center for Health Statistics, announcing that for every employee of the CDC “any and all correspondence with any member of the news media, regardless of the nature of the inquiry, must be cleared through CDC’s Atlanta Communications Office.”

    “According to recent news stories, scientists and health officials at the CDC must now coordinate with the Office of Vice President Mike Pence before speaking with members of the press or public about the pandemic,” the complaint reads. “These stories have raised concerns that public health experts who know most about the risks to the public are not being permitted to speak candidly and that the information the government is now conveying may be incomplete, inaccurate, or misleading.”

    https://jolt.law.harvard.edu/digest/cdc-sued-to-disclose-restrictions-on-scientists-right-to-speak

    When I was first alerted to the page being removed from Global Research, I searched and found the link for libertyinternational, and also found exerpts with the link to the Global Research article in the hoaky website TopSecret.com, which has conspiracy theories of QAnon,  Lizard People, and earth invading aliens.

    Obviously, it was Global Research that removed the article, perhaps by request because of the mention of the lawsuits and my reaction of justifiable rage to the lawsuits. So, are the lawsuits now, Above Top Secret? Would it surprise anyone if they were? If there are secret FISA courts, maybe there are secret arbitrage courts. I hope that they simply dropped them matter, but knowing how corrupt those organizations are, I have little faith that that is what happened.

    Agree 100%; dates in %m-%d-%Y (aka MM-DD-YYYY) are completely ‘tarded.

    Try sorting them; that will die in flames unless the datestr format is only representational and the actual data is in unix timestamps.

    There is only one way to do dates properly; %Y-%d-%m (e.g., 2021-02-15).

    I have some very limited flexibility about the separator (∈{-_/}), but the order and the leading zero on month and day when required… those are non-negotiable.

    Even Microsoft Excel doesn’t fuck that up, and it’s basically a stupid toy designed for shitheads.

    The Yank predilection for %m-%d-%Y (or I swear to god M-D-YY) probably stems from the olden days when it was normal to date correspondence “Philadelphia, July 5th, 1777” and the like… and everyone was ‘tarded.

    Smartest thing I have read yet. Politicians and Lawyers are not virologists. Never the less, they are playing the part while the GOV doctors are hiding the truth.

  101. What happened in Italy is that not all of Italy was hit by the virus, and not even the whole of northern Italy, where 3/4 of all deaths occurred. The epicentre of the covid virus was in Lombardy which accounts for 2/3 of all the victims. Why there? Well, in January 2020, Lombardy implemented a major vaccination campaign against meningococcus, following a mini epidemic of bacterial meningitis that affected just 6 people (with 2 deaths). The regional authorities decided on a massive and free-of-charge vaccination of the whole population. Within a few weeks, more than 33,000 people were vaccinated. 
     The vaccination status should be checked of the deceased in Italy as well as other regions (in France and Spain) where an abnormally high number of covid19 cases and deaths were reported. Could it show a correlation between vaccines and cases of covid19? I believe so, but big Pharma and it’s media pundits will use the usual argument of a “coincidence in timing” between vaccinations and covid19. But who will still be fooled?
