Vexxine Side Effects; Vexxine Mandates; Political Panics; More! — Coronavirus Update XCIII

This is a long post, dear reader. There is much that is happening at once, and no avoiding discussing each thing. Please scan at least each section.

Update! A Twitter user reminded me to remind you that the claimed vexxine reduction in infections (in post-clinical trials studies), which is 7.8%, is reduction in infections, shown in the calculations below. Given, say, only 1% who are infected die (and this too high so conservative), then the reduction in deaths is 0.01 * 0.078 = 0.00078, or 0.078%. That’s the only real important rate reduction. Celebrate the vexxine!

Update 2 See also this thread on relative versus absolute differences.

PANICS ARE POLITICAL

I cannot stress strongly enough that the admission below by a WHO official should be slammed home everywhere. Like this, for instance:

“Mr Official (or Ms Expert), I see you are mandating masks in kids. Yet the WHO says covid will be with us forever like the flu. Why are you continuing the panic when they say end it?”

Headline: COVID-19 won’t be eradicated: WHO

Global health experts expect COVID-19 to circulate and mutate similarly to the flu.

Despite innovations in vaccine development and research, the COVID-19 virus is not going away and is likely going to circulate through society similarly to influenza, officials at the World Health Organization (WHO) said in a press conference on Tuesday.

CNBC reports that experts including Mike Ryan, the executive director of the World Health Organization’s Health Emergencies Program, told reporters in a press briefing that COVID-19 will continue to evolve and will not be eradicated anytime soon.

“I think this virus is here to stay with us and it will evolve like influenza pandemic viruses, it will evolve to become one of the other viruses that affects us,” he said. ..

Ryan doubled down on his stance, saying COVID-19 will not simply disappear with increased vaccinations and preventative efforts.

“People have said we’re going to eliminate or eradicate the virus,” Ryan said. “No we’re not, very, very unlikely.”

Push this everywhere. And remind them of this:

WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN!? THEY’RE FINE

You’ve heard it from me a thousand and one times. Now hear it from a semi-woke outfit.

Headline: The Flimsy Evidence Behind the CDC’s Push to Vaccinate Children.

A tremendous number of government and private policies affecting kids are based on one number: 335. That is how many children under 18 have died with a Covid diagnosis code in their record, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Yet the CDC, which has 21,000 employees, hasn’t researched each death to find out whether Covid caused it or if it involved a pre-existing medical condition.

Without these data, the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices decided in May that the benefits of two-dose vaccination outweigh the risks for all kids 12 to 15. I’ve written hundreds of peer-reviewed medical studies, and I can think of no journal editor who would accept the claim that 335 deaths resulted from a virus without data to indicate if the virus was incidental or causal, and without an analysis of relevant risk factors such as obesity.

My research team at Johns Hopkins worked with the nonprofit FAIR Health to analyze approximately 48,000 children under 18 diagnosed with Covid in health-insurance data from April to August 2020. Our report found a mortality rate of zero among children without a pre-existing medical condition such as leukemia.

Zero is a number less than one, dear reader.

Zero is the number they are relying on to mandate masks, jabs, and other insanities. In the name of The Science.

Kids are at no real risk of covid. Never fail to remind them of this. They won’t listen. But they will know that you know the truth, and you will know that therefore they are evil.

There is some good news on this front. Like this headline: “Mask mandate leads to student walkouts at Gaylord High School in first week“.

This is how you win. If enough parents had the guts, and didn’t have the abject irrational fear, the local Experts would have to relent.

READER WRITES

I anonymized this with permission.

Neither my GF or I have the vaccines [They are in their 40s]. Generally healthy. We decided to get the antibodies test after reading about the George Mason professor who had CV and was being forced to get the vaccine & he prevailed with science.

My GF got an AB test (blood type) and she shows that she had previous infection of CV because she has the spike protein and AB of 6.0 > 0.7 (their arbitrary number cut off for having resistance). She had it last Nov but we didn’t even know until it was too late to get tested after our neighbors informed us 10 days after exposure that they tested positive. So she technically falls into the unvaccinated but with resistance due to previous infection (mind you Iceland and other countries consider this as good as vaccinated).

Anyway in that time period she lost her taste/headache/chills, etc for a day or two but nothing major. Here’s the thing. I was around her the whole time, in bed, intimate, in a car for 3 hours (we thought she had a sinus infection) etc. during those days and even after. I never got CV during that time.

So I also got a AB test after she got hers. My test came back with interesting results.

I was negative for the Spike (meaning no previous infection). BUT I did come back with some Antibodies…

The AB # was 0.4

Now that is below what they consider ‘resistant’ to CV which is above 0.7 but they admit they have no idea what imbues resistance.

So now I’m in what some call a grey area. I don’t fall within the previous infection category which some say needs to be considered just as good as vaccinated. But I do have some AB.

For reference both my [elderly] parents both got the Pfizer in late Feb. They got their tests both have the Spike and one had 111 gt; 0.7 AB and the other had 228 > 0.7 so they have a ton of AB.

My GF 6 seems small compared to that and my 0.4 paltry but like many have said, if your body doesn’t need the AB they wind them down and keep a small # to guard you and then ramp up if need.

I guess what I’m asking is have you run across anyone like myself (obviously exposed, never got it, have some AB) and also makes me wonder about getting any vaccine at all if my body seems to have already sorta been exposed (only one I would ever consider would be that Novavax you talked about).

Thx!

IVERMECTIN

It seems to have some benefit, though it is not a cureall. Here’s the abstract from the paper “Ivermectin for Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19 Infection: A Systematic Review, Meta-analysis, and Trial Sequential Analysis to Inform Clinical Guidelines” by Andrew et al in the American Journal of Therapeutics”.

Incidentally, before that, whenever you hear an official, Expert, or journalist say ivermectin is only meant for horses, say “Why are you lying? No. Really. Why are you lying? What do you hope to gain by lying? How does it benefit you?”

Meta-analysis of 15 trials found that ivermectin reduced risk of death compared with no ivermectin (average risk ratio 0.38, 95% confidence interval 0.19–0.73; n = 2438; I2 = 49%; moderate-certainty evidence). This result was confirmed in a trial sequential analysis using the same DerSimonian–Laird method that underpinned the unadjusted analysis. This was also robust against a trial sequential analysis using the Biggerstaff–Tweedie method. Low-certainty evidence found that ivermectin prophylaxis reduced COVID-19 infection by an average 86% (95% confidence interval 79%–91%). Secondary outcomes provided less certain evidence. Low-certainty evidence suggested that there may be no benefit with ivermectin for “need for mechanical ventilation,” whereas effect estimates for “improvement” and “deterioration” clearly favored ivermectin use. Severe adverse events were rare among treatment trials and evidence of no difference was assessed as low certainty. Evidence on other secondary outcomes was very low certainty.

VEXXINE SIDE EFFECTS

These are difficult to find, as regular readers know. Politically, it must be difficult for those studying it. Say “We discovered this bad effect” and a band of ignorant shrieking harpies can descend on you, claws unsheathed. They won’t be able to say you’re wrong. But they’ll say the way you said it was.

Anyway, there is some work trickling out. Here’s a July 2021 paper in Infectious Diseases entitled “Vaccine side-effects and SARS-CoV-2 infection after vaccination in users of the COVID Symptom Study app in the UK: a prospective observational study” by Menni and many. This is in “a UK community setting.” Paragraphifications are mine. Emphasis mine.

“BNT162b2” is the BioNTech-Pfizer jab, “ChAdOx1” is AstraZeneca. Which is easier than saying, “Ask your doctor if ChAdOx1 is right for you.”

Between Dec 8, and March 10, 2021, 627?383 individuals reported being vaccinated with 655?590 doses: 282?103 received one dose of BNT162b2, of whom 28?207 received a second dose, and 345?280 received one dose of ChAdOx1 nCoV-19.

Systemic side-effects were reported by 13.5% (38?155 of 282?103) of individuals after the first dose of BNT162b2, by 22.0% (6216 of 28?207) after the second dose of BNT162b2, and by 33.7% (116?473 of 345?280) after the first dose of ChAdOx1 nCoV-19.

Local side-effects were reported by 71.9% (150?023 of 208?767) of individuals after the first dose of BNT162b2, by 68.5% (9025 of 13?179) after the second dose of BNT162b2, and by 58.7% (104?282 of 177?655) after the first dose of ChAdOx1 nCoV-19.

Systemic side-effects were more common (1.6 times after the first dose of ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 and 2.9 times after the first dose of BNT162b2) among individuals with previous SARS-CoV-2 infection than among those without known past infection.

Local effects were similarly higher in individuals previously infected than in those without known past infection (1.4 times after the first dose of ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 and 1.2 times after the first dose of BNT162b2).

3106 of 103?622 vaccinated individuals and 50?340 of 464?356 unvaccinated controls tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 infection. Significant reductions in infection risk were seen starting at 12 days after the first dose, reaching 60% (95% CI 49–68) for ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 and 69% (66–72) for BNT162b2 at 21–44 days and 72% (63–79) for BNT162b2 after 45–59 days.

Math: 3106/103,622 = 3% infected in vexxed, and 50,340/464,356 = 10.8% infected unvexxed. Assuming all’s fair and proper, and no caveats apply, this is a 10.8 – 3 = 7.8% reduction in real risk in infections.

Update! A Twitter user reminded me to remind you this is a reduction in infections. Given, say, only 1% who are infected die (and this too high so conservative), then the reduction in deaths is 0.01 * 0.078 = 0.00078, or 0.078%. That’s the only real important rate reduction. Celebrate the vexxine!

Recall never use the relative rates unless you have the absolute rates by heart.

There are caveats, though. The rates were adjusted by age groupings (cut by 55 years old), and “sex, health-care worker status (binary variable), obesity [BMI cut at 30], and comorbidities (binary variable, with or without comorbidities).”

Dude, that’s a lot of “adjustments.” Meaning, if you’re healthy, young, and not a medico, the reward of the vexxine is almost certainly less than 7.8% reduction, probably a lot less than that.

We can’t know because they didn’t put the raw numbers in for infections. They did for side effects, though, which was kind. The summary above shows, yes, side effects are not uncommon. Go to the paper to see the details (how many arthralgia, how many welts, etc.).

They don’t list any seriously serious effects, like myocarditis.

For that, you can read an outline over at Berenson’s place. Or, better, read “Is it possible to avoid heart damage from the COVID vaccine? Or do all COVID-vaccinated people have some myocarditis?” by Coleen Huber.

Is the human recipient of a spike protein-generating mRNA vaccine reasonably expected to continue to generate spike proteins for an indefinite amount of time? Or even permanently? We need to know this, because the spike protein has been shown to have deleterious effects, and because myocarditis, which seems to be one of those effects, is now being observed in some vaccinated individuals, the mechanisms of which are discussed in this paper. There is observed precedent for mRNA medical treatments to have lasting effect on DNA, [44] which impacts future as well as present generations. Questions involving such serious potential consequences for human health must be answered, and standards of safety and informed consent must be met, before an ambitious and experimental procedure on the massive scale we are witnessing is deployed on populations. As a result, vaccines of this type must be avoided until these questions are thoroughly resolved, in order to prevent further harm to human health.

Amen, sister.

VEXXINE MANDATES

Or you can look at this:

That means the harms from the vexxine outweigh the benefits in teenage boys. Teenage boys, at the least, should not take the vexxine. If they are made to take it, those ordering it are openly doing evil.

They know this, too. So why do they do this known evil? Let’s think on this.

Here’s another thing real Experts know: that natural immunity is superior to the vexxine. Yet they don’t allow NI to evade vex mandates.

They lie about this, mostly by remaining silent, because they want to encourage vex rates. If they allowed NI, they fear many would claim it.

That would, of course, depress vex rates. Some in the masses would lie themselves about having NI, of course. But not many.

Testing for NI is too messy in conjunction with vex mandate. Too much work, too many opportunities for failure, i.e. low vex rates.

So they tell noble lie.

They figure that the vex side effects are low enough, but still there and real, that it’s just easier to make all get the vex. Even for people where it’s not needed.

So much easier to keep track of vex status than NI!

And they wonder why we don’t trust them.

VEXXINE FAILURES

They’re starting, in various places, to admit the vexxine will not eliminate coronadoom. Even in Canada (thanks to Aaron Glover for the tip):

Bogoch agreed that any booster shot programs should target both the elderly and immunocompromised but not the general public in Canada just yet — despite countries such as the U.S. and Israel already offering third doses to younger residents as well.

“It doesn’t make any sense. You see virtually no serious, severe cases in those younger cohorts,” Bogoch said. “And why would you? What would be the benefit of giving a vaccine there?”

These vaccines aren’t meant to stop the coronavirus from entering and replicating in your body, he explained, though that’s obviously a best-case scenario.

Instead, Bogoch said, COVID-19 vaccines are ultimately meant to prevent serious infection, hospitalization and death — “and they’re still doing that.”

Not perfectly — and not for everyone.

Or this:

CULT OF THE MASK

Astonishing. Australians have driven themselves mad. It will not surprise us if the police begin shooting down the maskless like rabid dogs.

Maybe this is the fault of watching too many zombie movies. A maskless stands in for the zombie. If he touches you, you become maskless yourself. And immediately become infected.

The good news in that view is that zombies usually win in these movies.

EXPERT WATCH

Let’s check in on Experts.

NUMBERS

Since we’re running long, only one plot this week. And, really, all we need. The daily “cases” (source)—a mixture of testing number (huge!), test sensitivity (who knows), disease prevalence (waning), and disease severity (ditto):

It’s going down. As we predicted for several weeks, and as we see. The rulers will certainly take credit for this, even though it happened before their latest “solutions”.

The bad news, besides political, is that this will not bottom out, since we’re about the enter our cold season in the north, when we engage in voluntary “lockdowns”, i.e. head inside to spread disease.

This will dip, like last summer, but rise again in about a month to six weeks. Regardless how many get their vexxine. My guess is that the winter’s peak is sizable, but not as big as last winter’s.

  1. Early on it was admitted that children had practically no risk from COVID-19. The argument for masking was to prevent them from getting infected asymptomatically and then spreading the disease to their elderly grandparents. (Remember that political cartoon about the grandson hugging his grandmother and saying “Don’t worry, Trump says I don’t have to worry about getting sick!” while a cloud of coronavirus particles covers him?)

    However once the vast majority of the elderly were vaccinated it was no longer convenient to use that line of argument, since it would imply that the vaccines didn’t work. (I mean, they do not work to the extent claimed, but they can’t admit that.) Since children could not be vaccinated, they were now the perfect population to focus on. Thus suddenly the news started saying that children had a good chance of getting sick and dying from COVID after all, so parents should lobby the FDA to bypass safety tests for children to allow them to be vaccinated, and children should stay in masks all day until they get jabbed.

    Once children are vaccinated they’ll probably start saying that the vaccines are useless and everyone needs to be afraid again. But if you get a booster you’ll be safe!

  2. Briggs—- wish I could remind you on Twitter but I have been banned for life….Stuck up for Pres Trump and I was wiped clean. Set up another account and I guess I said something to a person that was not a man or a woman, wiped again….

    So I would like to remind you that you are doing an incredible job day in and day out…..

    Long Live Briggs—

  3. Correlation of daily tests and “cases” (positive results) is up to 81% this morning. Test more, find more. Test less, find less. The tyrants can know they can turn it off and on as they please.

    Get rid of free for all community testing and restrict it to clinical settings like we do all other tests for viruses and this “pandemic” will disappear overnight.

  4. Big Pharma is killing the Goose – when will the populace work it out? I am writing this from downunder in Aus the land of the lockdown on one case – send food parcels!!

  5. In that crazy news clip from Prison Colony Australia, you gotta love the guy wearing his mask below the nose and nobody says a word. Ridiculous!

  6. From personal observations about 50% of those 25 or younger consistently wear their masks below their noses when they are required to wear them. About 20% of those (so 10% of the total) wear them on the chin or neck, so that neither the mouth nor the nose is covered. I’ve never seen anyone called on it for wearing the mask incorrectly, especially since these days many people do not wear masks at all in mask mandated zones and thus make easier targets.

    And yet if the “cases” go down the officials will credit it partially to increased mask use, including the people who are wearing them on their necks in the category of “mask users.”

  7. Your occasional reminder none of this panic and fearmongering was ever justified for something 99.98% survive. All about social control and coercion (introducing Chinese-style “Social Credit” to the West under the guise of “it’s for your health”), and greater economic concentration in the hands of a few oligarchs.

    Something that just occurred to me: Has anyone seen any pregnancy-related vaccine data analysis so far? One of the big fears (“disinformation” as the media put it) about these mRNA jabs was their effect not only on existing pregnancies (numerous reports of spontaneous miscarriages within days of jab), but also potential long-term effect on ability to get pregnant and/or successfully carry new pregnancies to term and deliver healthy babies (not only potential problems with mRNA tech in itself, but Gates-funded jabs used in Third World have been found to contain sterilants, so not an irrational concern, given whose money is behind much of global medical policy, Moderna, etc., and given his long-term obsession with population control, coupled with the extreme government and media propaganda push surrounding these jabs).

    So, have there been any studies yet on Covid-vaccinated women who have become pregnant post-jab, or who, conversely, have had difficulty conceiving post-jab? Comparative rates of total new pregnancies overall in jabbed versus unjabbed women? Any studies on rate of miscarriage in those jabbed (whether during pregnancy existing at time of jab, or among those who conceived post-jab but later suffered miscarriage), and how those miscarriage rates compare to those unjabbed and to average miscarriage rates pre-Covid/Covid-jab rollout? Of those who’ve given birth post-jab, any sign of significant health issues with babies that may be attributable to Covid jab side effects passed through mother during pregnancy (for ex. high rates of myocarditis in newborns all of a sudden)? Seems like an area ripe for investigation and should be some good data trickling-in by now, though obviously some issues we may not know for years (i.e. teen girls jabbed now who discover in their 20s they have been made infertile).

  8. “This is how you win. If enough parents had the guts, and didn’t have the abject irrational fear, the local Experts would have to relent.” If pigs could fly…

    ““Another 32 asymptomatic cases, which China does not count as confirmed cases before they show clinical signs such as fever, have been detected in the province [Fujian] since September 10, all in Putian city,” Reuters noted on September 13.” So the Chinese count actual sick people, NOT PCR test results. Smart. They will always have fewer sick than the idiots in the USA who count anything.

    As far as natural immunity, as I have noted before, I don’t get flu shots because the only thing that ever made me sick was the flu shots. Officials are deliberately ignoring natural immunity.

    Mercury: I would have thought “adult beverages” would have been in higher demand than food. Everyone feeds prisoners, even North Korea. I suppose one could label the package as food, however.

    Rudolph: It was apparent the mask was nothing more than a control device when there were no rules about what it was constructed of. Cloth can easily be made very breathable and totally useless, even though it’s worthless. You can even make undetectable holes in those surgical masks. Function was never part of the program.

  9. Another “why are you lying” moment comes when reporters/experts claim that we only have “vaccine hesitancy” because President Trump told his supporters to not take the vaccines. I have heard on at least three separate occasions the claim “Former President Trump finally changed his position on vaccines and has encouraged supporters to get them, but it is probably too little too late.”

    In reality Trump bragged about how great the vaccines were from day one. The only he attacks the administration relative to the vaccines is to complain about them not giving him credit for his amazing vaccines. At no point has he ever suggested that they are dangerous or should not be taken.

    And yet the news routinely suggests, and sometimes outright states, that he is one of the biggest critics of the vaccine.

    At that point all you can really ask is “why are you lying?”

  10. John B(): That’s especially stray cats, which this one appeared to be. I did think it was cool how they saved the cate with a flag in a fireman style rescue, but cats are notoriously ungrateful. We can cheer while the cat hisses!

  11. Simon: Yes, that’s the standard risk disclaimer regarding pregnant women on all the vax labels, but I’m more interested in real world data analysis after vax usage by outside researchers. Clearly the vax companies didn’t do (and probably couldn’t do – why would any sane pregnant woman not trying to kill her baby ever participate, or be allowed to participate, in a new drug trial?) adequate trials on pregnant women for these rushed EUA jabs, and the disclaimer language on labels is there for legal CYA purposes.

  12. Sheri,
    You are joking?
    Can’t really see the cat land so don’t know what he did (seems like a he) but
    Did you think he might make a speech?

    Cat affection is a real thing but they don’t do public displays of affection.
    They also hate to be shown up…love there’s more than one way to swing a cat on nine eleven, too.

  13. https://www.simplemost.com/football-fans-caught-falling-cat-american-flag/

    No, I expected exactly what the cat did. Cats can be very assertive. Cat affection, like all animal affection, is to manipulate humans. The cat had to be restrained by the neck, which is common. Someone did a study on dogs and concluded they are best at manipulating and reading humans. I had a vicious Yorkshire Terrier who bit everyone. The vet muzzled him. These are animals and they do what THEY want to do. Humans just fall for ruse.

  14. Thank you, Matt! Lots of info!

    I imagine the cat was very scared and just wanted to get out of there. Wonder where she came from anyway, how she ended up, up there, hanging in the breeze??

    God bless, C-Marie

  15. Uh oh… looks like the California recall election is being ‘fortified’…
    https://www.zerohedge.com/political/california-republicans-shocked-discover-theyre-already-voted-recall-election

    Uh oh… looks like all those hospitalizations aren’t that big a deal…

    A brand new study is calling into question how reliable and meaningful of a number of “patients hospitalized with Covid-19” in the U.S. is.

    Covid hospitalizations – the most common metric heard when discussing the seriousness of the pandemic – may not be nearly as meaningful of a number as many once thought. And don’t take it from us: The Atlantic published a stunning piece on Tuesday citing a new study that suggests “almost half of those hospitalized with COVID-19 have mild or asymptomatic cases”.

    The Atlantic had formerly called Covid hospitalizations “the most reliable pandemic number,” last winter. Now, after a nationwide study of hospitalization records was release, the publication is walking back its fervor on that statement.

    What does the study as a whole conclude? Again, in the words of The Atlantic: “…the study also demonstrates that hospitalization rates for COVID, as cited by journalists and policy makers, can be misleading, if not considered carefully.”

    If this is true, then Israel is aiming is trying to directly compete with Australia for who can do the most craziest things to save just one life.

  16. Good stuff.

    BNT162b2” is the BioNTech-Pfizer jab, “ChAdOx1” is AstraZeneca.

    On a lighter note I cannot be the only one who read this as Bint and Chad.

  17. Johnno: ”…Israel is aiming to directly compete with Australia for who can do the most craziest things to save just one life.”

    Revising the Talmud: …And to save one life, the Scripture considers it licit to destroy an entire world.

  18. Dennis: “Something that just occurred to me: Has anyone seen any pregnancy-related vaccine data analysis so far?”

    For some bizarre reason, no. (Well, not so bizarre if they’re not looking or recording the data.) I do remember seeing some data that miscarriages among the vexxined were way up.

    Then again, it took over five years after it was “approved” for Thalidomide birth defects to be traced back to the drug itself.

  19. Yes, my guess is that the questions I asked above are simply, like so many reasonable questions about Covid and these jabs (which would be normal inquiries for any other virus, disease, or drug), forbidden by the Narrative that these jabs are “safe and effective,” and any evidence otherwise is to be ignored.

    Odd considering how pregnancy issues were one of the main objections I heard raised early on in the rollout of these jabs. You would think the pro-jabbers would be anxious to quell those fears with decisive evidence they are indeed “safe” for pregnant women and don’t result in widespread sterility, no? Either the evidence doesn’t exist, or no one has bothered to try to track or compile any such info (I’m sure under current circumstances getting a research grant to study the Covid vaxes in relation to pregnancy issues would not be easy unless it was clear one’s conclusion is pre-determined to support the Narrative).

  20. Anyone know how to buy a rapid Covid-AB test? Apparently only certain labs are allowed to purchase them. Strange. On the other hand, the rapid Covid tests are available at most pharmacies (when they can keep them in stock). Strange.

    I was in the hospital earlier in the year, with symptoms not associated with Covid. They did a Covid test, it came back negative. I have no doubt I would have been added to the “hospitalized with Covid” statistics had it been positive, since they they never figured out what caused my symptoms. Or even if they had, I think. So I think we are stuck looking at total mortality, nothing else seems untouched by the politics. How did we get to this sorry state of affairs?

  21. They SELL Covid tests at pharmacies now? As in take it home and do it yourself, like a home pregnancy test? Cha-Ching! Look into who owns the big test producing companies, and there you have the reason the mass testing regime, with efforts at forced weekly testing of everyone who refuses to take an experimental mRNA jab, continues to be inflicted on humanity.

    And what are you supposed to do with the home test if it says positive, especially if you have little or no symptoms? Call someone and register for quarantine and track & trace surveillance? Yeah, right. I’ll get right on that. I’ve avoided ever being tested so far, and I will go to great lengths to avoid ever being tested at this point for any reason (even when I’ve felt a bit sick in the past, I’ve never been tested for flu, so even if I have some mild flu-like symptoms, I’m not rushing out to take a Covid test).

    It will never end unless people en masse simply refuse everything – no tests, no jabs, no muzzles, no health passports. What we need is a massive General Strike. Everyone simply walkout or stay home from work for a day. Cripple literally everything for just one day, and the Covid tyranny will end.

  22. Dennis: “As in take it home and do it yourself, like a home pregnancy test?” No, they wouldn’t do that. The antigen test could be at-home testing, with the proviso that it has a high false negative rate, but they won’t because they want to data-mine it.

    Very interesting, though, life insurance claims year-to-date seem to be up.

  23. Dennis: “It will never end unless people en masse simply refuse everything – no tests, no jabs, no muzzles, no health passports. What we need is a massive General Strike. Everyone simply walkout or stay home from work for a day. Cripple literally everything for just one day, and the Covid tyranny will end.”

    Well, it might take a week. But what I’m seeing is that people are quitting en masse. And then there’s the blue flu.

  24. “Blue flu” is an industrial action by police officers, who can’t legally strike, where they all call in sick.

  25. Ah. Unfortunately, police in most places today are more likely to “take a knee” to whatever the Regime’s Idol of the moment is than engage in “industrial action.”

    But, whether legal or not (what are they gonna do, fire tens or hundreds of millions at once for striking?) a global General Strike by all against tyrannical Covid measures would be a great way to bring the Regime to ITS knees.

  26. A rather odd statement from our local public health Experts:

    “Did you know that you’re 6x more likely to develop myocarditis or pericarditis while suffering from a COVID-19 infection, than developing it due to a side effect from COVID-19 vaccines?”

    Huh?

    Nowhere do they provide any references or even a hint of how they derive this “6x” figure. I guess The Experts are above such things.

  27. In MN there is some worry about today’s “spike” in deaths. 41 deaths, while recently daily deaths have been closer to 0-15. More deaths reported in one day than we’ve seen since January! But if you look further into the data you will see that only 13 deaths are from recently (i.e. August and September 2021.) The remaining 28, are from Feburary 2021 or earlier, with the oldest reported death being from June 2020 (over a year ago.)

    News reaction to this has been interesting. There’s a tension between drumming up panic over the large number and downplaying to be able to say “vaccines are still working.” Sometimes you see both tactics used back to back in adjacent sentences.

  28. Speaking of Vexxine side effects, a good handy graph here, and summary of how CDC and FDA are derelict in their pre and post-licensure safety monitoring and action on “safety signals” from VAERS with regard to these Covid jabs. Other vaccines have been pulled with far fewer and less serious VAERS reports; but the Regime has decided these are “safe and effective,” so no discussion may be had, and if you say otherwise you are a conspiracy theorist and science-denier: https://nonvenipacem.com/2021/09/16/if-only-we-had-some-kind-of-early-warning-system-for-vaccine-reactions-so-wed-know-right-away-if-something-was-wrong/

  29. About that “crisis” of the “unvexxinated.”

    “This is the way the corrupt agency blames Covid deaths on the unvaccinated.

    So far most deaths from the vaccine occur during the first two weeks. To blame these deaths on the lack of vaccination instead of on the vaccine, the CDC rules that you are not actually vaccinated until two weeks after having the second injection.

    The CDC defines a “vaccine breakthrough infection” as “the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA or antigen in a respiratory specimen collected from a person 14 days after they have completed all recommended doses of the Food and Drug Administration authorized Covid-19 vaccine.”

    This is one of the tricks the corrupt “public health agency” uses to scare people about Covid and use fear to drive them to inoculation.

    Another trick, already much reported, is to run the PCR Covid test at 40 cycles which guarantees as much as 97% false positives. This deception is the source of the scary number of “Covid cases.”

    There have also been many definitional changes for the purpose of hiding the truth about Covid and the vaccine.”

    https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2021/09/16/cdc-counts-vaccinated-deaths-as-unvaccinated-deaths/

    Does anyone out there still think there is no conspiracy to mass-murder?

  30. “There’s a tension between drumming up panic over the large number and downplaying to be able to say ‘vaccines are still working.’”

    Yes, it will be really interesting this Fall as normal flu season kicks in and the reality of vaccine failure becomes harder to deny. I think the obvious solution is that they will just blame the unvaccinated and ramp-up the eliminationist rhetoric and calls for forced jabs or camps (as well as 3rd – then 4th, and on and on – boosters for the already jabbed).

  31. Johnno,

    In addition to all that you have the following:

    -CDC recommends that testing only be done for the vaccinated in symptomatic individuals. It recommends testing more generally in the unvaccinated to catch asymptomatic cases.
    -The CDC guidelines for testing put a threshold at 28 cycles for testing from the vaccinated, but did not set this threshold for the unvaccinated.
    -The powers that be are pushing weekly testing, but only for the unvaccinated.

    These factors combined will obviously make it a lot easier to find “cases” in the unvaccinated.

    On a related note, the MN department of health will only count a “breakthrough death” if:

    -The person in question had both shots at least 14 days prior to death.
    -There was a positive COVID test done before or after death.
    -COVID is listed as the cause of death and there is no alternative cause.

    But for “COVID deaths” more generally all that is needed is a positive test.

    Even with all that, they report things with the most dishonest metric. For example “there were only 10 breakthrough deaths this week, which is only .0004% of the number of vaccinated!” Imagine if we had only reported COVID deaths generally in terms of the percent of people who died each week out of the total population! It’s also common for them to compare the ratio of “breakthroughs” to incidents throughout the whole pandemic, including the entire year when no one was vaccinated.

    If you dig at all it’s transparently obvious what is going on, but the truth is that most people eat this stuff up. However, the target audience for this sort of statistical manipulation is really midwits, and it’s not really to convince them but instead to give them something to smugly tell their relatives. If the news just said “the vaccines are completely effective and no one who has been vaccinated has ever even gotten a sniffle! (trust us)” probably about half the population would believe it.

  32. “It recommends testing more generally in the unvaccinated to catch asymptomatic cases.”

    LOL. Yes, gotta catch all those invisible “cases” in the non-sick to keep the panic and fearmongering going, and to justify the Interahamwe Left’s eliminationist rhetoric toward the vaccine “hesitant.”

  33. PaulH: “A rather odd statement from our local public health Experts:

    “‘Did you know that you’re 6x more likely to develop myocarditis or pericarditis while suffering from a COVID-19 infection, than developing it due to a side effect from COVID-19 vaccines?’”

    Hmm… I do remember reading a study that showed rates of myocarditis or pericarditis are six times higher in 12-17 vexxined boys. So, it sounds like your “local public health Experts” got it backwards.

    https://sharylattkisson.com/2021/08/new-covid-19-vaccine-adverse-events-in-children/

  34. “COVID is listed as the cause of death and there is no alternative cause”

    This is and interesting bit of slight-of-hand too, because this has not been standard procedure even before the vaccines were rolled-out, as nearly all “Covid deaths” also had co-morbidities (often more than one), so those counted as “Covid deaths” were often those who really died of something else, but happened to also have Covid (the line between true cause and proximate cause of death vis-a-vis Covid very blurry because of the existence of co-morbidities). If this – “no alternative cause” – were the standard all along for “Covid deaths” (pre or post-vaccines), the alarmism would have been impossible to keep up; indeed, there would have been no “pandemic” and it really would have been treated as just another “bad flu season.”

  35. Dennis, regarding pregnancy, was listening this morning to Ryan Christian at (The Last American Vagabond, he brings this up (queue linked podcast to 1:55:00), pointing out Fauci has strongly urged pregnant women to get v’axed in spite of the fact that Pfizer’s own fact sheet given to nurses administering the v’axe, as of August 23rd 2021, says: “Available data on Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine administered to pregnant women are insufficient to inform vaccine-associated risks in pregnancy.”

    So get v’axed ladies, it’s safe and effective, even though we have no idea what the actual risks are!

    I’ve been listening to Ryan’s “Daily Wrap-Up” at his “Last American Vagabond” website and highly recommend him. He’s smart and passionate, funny, has a keen analytic mind, does thorough show prep, and is able to recall and integrate lots of info and make connections in powerful ways. It’s audio-visual, no text, so you need to be able to listen to the podcast or watch the video. I tune in when doing chores or working in the shop. Have learned much from him.

  36. Yep, it’s “safe and effective” because the Regime-approved “experts” say so, and repeat it with mantra-like regularity, so it must be true.

    Q: “May I see some trial data and other evidence, please? What about VAERS reports, which the FDA and CDC are supposed to use as ‘safety signals’ in their oversight of vaccines?”

    A: Evidence? How dare you! What are you, a conspiracist and science-denier (and probably a racist too!)?

    A leaked Zoom conference reveals a doctor questioning how to increase the count of COVID-19 patient numbers on the hospital’s dashboard report.

    The media outlet National File said it obtained the recording from an “internal source” at the Novant Health System that includes New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, North Carolina.

    National File posted the video on its Twitter feed on Sept. 10.

    SHOCK VIDEO: Senior doctors and a marketing director at in North Carolina discussed inflating COVID-19 numbers by counting recovered patients as active COVID patients.

    Trust yo doctar! Dey nevar lie!

  38. Johnno: “A reminder about who the mask mandates are really for.”

    Personally, I think all the servers at such events should wear masks and liberally spray those masks with the “wintergreen” spray that surgeons use on their masks when operating on patients with peritonitis to keep them from gagging due to the foul odor of decay. And most surgeons are much less susceptible to gag reflexes than your average person. So, your average person, any given server, will probably need more “wintergreen” spray than a surgeon would.

    It would be so sad, too bad, if the “guests” couldn’t enjoy their food due to the “wintergreen” spray everywhere. (It’s pretty potent.)

  39. Cracks in the dam!

    Local Detroit TV Asks for Stories of Unvaxxed Dying from COVID – Gets over 180K Responses of Vaccine Injured and Dead Instead

    The corporate media narrative that unvaccinated people are filling up the hospitals and dying from COVID is quickly falling apart, perhaps faster than they even expected.

    WXYZ TV Channel 7 in Detroit asked their viewers on their Facebook Page last Friday to direct message them if they lost a loved one due to COVID-19 if they refused to get one of the COVID-19 vaccines.

    This is a clear indication that they are getting desperate to find these stories, and are having a difficult time finding them.

    I don’t know if they got any such stories through direct messaging, but the post on their Facebook Page, as of the time of publication today, had received over 182,000 comments, and they seem to be all comments of those who have lost loved ones after receiving a COVID shot, and comments asking them why they are not covering that story.

    Absolutely NO-ONE may work without the Mark of the Vexx in Italy beginning in October! Where are all those conspiracy-deniers now?!

    The Italian government on Thursday approved among the strictest COVID-19 rules in the world by mandating that all private and public sector employees get the vaccine and show proof of vaccination, a negative test, or a recent recovery from infection, officials said.

  41. Note that what is required is proof of “recent” infection, but currently any vaccine seems to be fine. This despite all studies pointing to immunity from recovery being longer lasting and more effective than vaccines.

  42. In places that require proof of either vax, recent negative test, or past infection, what format is the proof required to be in proof take, and how easy is it to get fake “proof” (I have a jpeg of one of those early vaccine cards that was going around, with blank spots that can be hand-filled, but not sure it would suffice, or what stock paper it even should be printed on).

    Oregon Senators File Formal Grand Jury Petition Calling for Investigation into CDC’s Willful Misconduct to Hyperinflate COVID-19 Data Following Federal Law Violations

    “Federal agencies like the CDC have committed atrocities in the name of ‘public health,’ resulting in extensive collateral damage that transformed society in ways that we are still grappling to understand. The CDC’s unlawful and questionable changes to death certificates related to COVID, the use of false-positive PCR tests and their callous indifference to individual rights—or science, for that matter—led to fraudulent data that was used to justify sweeping policy changes, not only in Oregon, but across the country. I refuse to stand by and watch as our constitutional rights and liberties are endangered by oppressive agencies, which is why I have chosen to take part in this effort to bring forth a petition for a grand jury investigation. Equal protection under the Constitution is still the right of every American.” — Kim Thatcher – Oregon State Senator

    “Plain and simple: the CDC acted illegally in March of 2020, which has led to these current ‘medical’ mandates stemming from the original lynchpin of corrupted data for COVID death certificates. Our health and the health of our children is our responsibility, not the government’s, yet the CDC, through pure data manipulation, has promulgated government overreach through incredulous policies in unimaginable ways through this wrongful slight-of-hand, creating a falsified reality that has no place in a free society.” — Dennis Linthicum – Oregon State Senator

    “Our COVID Research Team has dedicated more than 20,000 hours into investigating all aspects of COVID-19 and feel that it is imperative to produce high-integrity research to empower elected officials, attorneys, professional organizations, independent media and the public to take action on behalf of good people throughout the world. Why am I doing this? I ask myself this question often, and then I think about Simone Scott, the 19-year old Northwestern student who died horrifically after receiving experimental inoculations. I think about Hayden Hunstable, the 12-year old who took his own life during the despair of being isolated from friends during ineffective lockdowns. And I think about how the CDC has violated multiple federal laws in order to hyperinflate COVID deaths and promote rampant acts of willful misconduct. What’s happened since 2-weeks to flatten the curve is wrong and while we can’t bring back the departed, we can make sure they are remembered as the inspirations for us making things right.” — Dr. Henry L. Ealy – Researcher, Founder of the Energetic Health Institute

    “Grand jury petitions are a way for any elected officials or individual to help drive forward an investigation into the widespread willful misconduct surrounding the response to COVID-19. The work that Oregon Senators Dennis Linthicum and Kim Thatcher have done provides a viable template for others to use in their own state to say ‘we have had enough’ and demand real answers, with real discovery, to end the harmful policies destroying the U.S.” — Leah Wilson, J.D. – Executive Director and Co-Founder, Stand for Health Freedom

  46. BWAHAHAHAHAHA! I told you this would be inevitable! Will we have WW3 between nations refusing to recognize each other’s vexxines?

    New York City’s (legally questionable) demand that all representatives and diplomats who attend next week’s UN General Assembly meeting show proof of vaccination is threatening to derail the annual summit of world leaders as Russia and China protest the fact that their locally developed vaccines won’t be accepted.

    NYC’s request that diplomats and their entourage show proof of vaccination before being admitted somehow received the backing of General Assembly President Maldivian Foreign Minister Abdulla Shahid. In a statement released on Wednesday, NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio and International Affairs Commissioner Penny Abeywardena thanked UN diplomats ahead of time for “working with us”, calling them “true New Yorkers”.

    Unfortunately, not all diplomats are equally enthusiastic. In a letter to colleagues released on Wednesday, Russian UN Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya denounced these new requirements as “clearly discriminatory” and accused NYC and Shahid of violating the UN charter, which states that the UN is international territory.

    In the face of Russia’s complaints, Mayor de Blasio doubled down: “If the Russian ambassador is against it, I’m for it.” So much for the spirit of international diplomacy.

    Keep in mind, the biggest issue here isn’t that diplomats aren’t vaccinated. It’s that they’re vaccinated with jabs that haven’t been approved in the US.

    Sputnik V, a vaccine backed by Moscow and widely administered in Russia, does not have approval in the United States and is not on the World Health Organization’s emergency use listing either.

    To try and make everybody happy, NY officials have promised to dole out free doses of the single-dose J&J jab by the UN Headquarters in Midtown. But it’s not approved in all member states, either (though it has been approved by the WHO, even as questions about dangerous side effects linger).

    To Mayor de Blasio, this amounts to a sufficient olive branch. “If their vaccine isn’t good enough, then they should go and use one of the other vaccines.”
