For those who may be disappointed by some of our postings, those postings that discuss a potential worsening of the Covid scamdemic, one word of clarification. We do not in the least suggest that such a possibility could be a natural development of a virus out of control. Rather, such posts are meant to warn the public of the real possibility of an escalation of the scamdemic by the same means that made it possible in the first place. The same agenda that triggered the phase one of the plandemic continues against the public, only at a more heightened level.

Vaccination Increases Infection Risk by 44%, Oxford Study Finds

by WILL JONES via Daily Sceptic
Record Number of Booster Vaccine Doses Given on Saturday

Two doses of COVID-19 vaccine make you 44% more likely to be infected, a study from Oxford University has found, contradicting the basis of global vaccine policy, which assumes vaccination significantly cuts incidence and transmission.

The study, published in the Lancet, looked at all infections reported in England among adults registered at a medical practice from December 8th 2020 to November 17th 2021, meaning it spanned the Alpha and Delta periods. It used a case-control design to estimate vaccine effectiveness, allowing potential confounding factors such as age, sex and underlying conditions to be controlled for, while individuals with prior infection were excluded.

The results for effectiveness against positive Covid test (i.e., reported infection), which were found buried away in the supplementary appendix, are shown below.

I’ve highlighted in yellow three key figures. The top two show that in the two weeks following the first jab individuals were three to four times more likely to test positive for Covid than their unvaccinated counterparts. This is further confirmation of the post-jab spike in infections that has often been noted and which there is evidence is a result of the vaccination temporarily reducing immunity.

The third figure shows that two weeks or more after the second jab – which during 2021 was regarded as ‘fully vaccinated’ – individuals were 44% more likely to be infected than their unvaccinated counterparts. This is negative vaccine effectiveness (where infections are higher in the vaccinated than the unvaccinated) of minus-44%. This negative effectiveness is in line with what was seen in the raw data from England at the time and also in studies from other countries, but contradicts the Government’s official estimates, which claimed effectiveness to be 60-85% against Delta infection. The new study indicates that the negative effectiveness was not just a result of confounding factors or a ‘catch-up’ effect, where the vaccinated have lower infection rates initially then higher infection rates as the effect of the vaccine wears off, as some have claimed.

Acknowledging the figures, the authors write: “Surprisingly, we observed a higher risk of test positivity after vaccination with one or two doses across all BMI groups, which is contrary to evidence reported by the U.K. ONS.” What they don’t mention is that it is fully in line with data from the UKHSA, nor that the ONS is known to overestimate infection rates in the unvaccinated because it underestimates the population – the ONS puts the unvaccinated adult population at 8% whereas the NIMS database puts it at 19% (and surveys higher still at 26%).

The authors state that the “hospital admission and death outcomes were considered more robust outcomes than infection” owing to “variability in testing” and a potentially “high proportion of asymptomatic infections”. The implication is that unvaccinated people were less likely to get tested when infected, suppressing the positive test rate in the unvaccinated. No evidence is provided for this claim, however, nor any attempt made to quantify the possible size of the difference.

The study was published in June but went largely unnoticed until Alex Berenson wrote about it last week. Alex also draws attention to the fact that vaccine effectiveness against hospitalisation and death is much weaker than was claimed at the time.

Vaccine effectiveness against death 14 or more days after the second jab is just 61% (the first highlighted figure), well below the 90-99% claimed by the Government. Note that the overall protection will be even lower owing to the vaccinated being more likely to be infected: the 44% higher infection rate mentioned above would reduce the 61% effectiveness to just 34%.

Oddly, the vaccine effectiveness against death in the week following the third jab (the second highlighted figure) jumps up to 97%, from 61% following the second jab, despite this being before the effect of the booster should kick in. This oddity is not explained.

Looking at the hospitalisation figures, there is a disturbing spike in the weeks following the first jab, hitting over twice as high (2.02) in the second week. Why are the vaccinated up to twice as likely to be hospitalised with Covid than the unvaccinated in the weeks following the jab?

The figures show that having two vaccine doses reduces hospitalisation risk by 66% once 14 days post-injection (though once again there is an unexplained leap in efficacy from 19% 28 days after dose 1 to 67% in the week after dose 2). The 66% is markedly lower than the 90-99% claimed at the time, as shown below in the table from a UKHSA Government report in September 2021.

UKHSA, September 2021

The new figures are much more in line with what was observed in the raw UKHSA data. But it means we’re left without explanation as to why the clinical trials and Government studies showed high efficacy for a two dose course, when observational studies of the real-world evidence now find negative effectiveness against infection and much lower than advertised effectiveness against serious disease. An explanation is clearly required. And given the earlier studies were used to inform both individuals’ choices and public policy, including medical coercion, serious lessons need to be learned.

Covid and the Political Bankruptcy of the Alternative Media

by Ron Unz via unz.com

[Editor’s Note: Ron Unz is making a huge mistake dismissing the anti-vaxxing movement as a nutty case of anti-science. Still the rest of the article is a very courageous indictment of the US bioweapon industry behind the Corona virus]

Russia’s nuclear arsenal of nearly 6,000 warheads is just as formidable as our own, and its revolutionary hypersonic delivery system far superior. A command by Russian President Vladimir Putin could annihilate the bulk of America’s population in less than an hour.

Under such dangerous circumstances, our need for careful and circumspect behavior towards the other nuclear superpower is obvious, but the reality has been entirely different. With one or two exceptions, we carefully avoided any potentially disastrous confrontation during the 1950s and 1960s height of our old Cold War, but in the recent years and especially the recent months of our renewed conflict, we have done exactly the opposite, now spending many tens of billions of dollars to wage a deadly proxy-war on Russia’s own border. Top media pundits and leading U.S. Senators have publicly called for Putin’s assassination, and our officials have boasted to the pressof their successful role in killing numerous Russian generals. Such extraordinarily provocative actions would have been unimaginable under President Ronald Reagan, let alone his more restrained predecessors such as Dwight Eisenhower or Richard Nixon.

Yet oddly enough, while most of our mainstream media routinely castigated and condemned Reagan for his occasionally harsh rhetoric against our Communist Russian adversary, today virtually all of our major media regularly spews forth vastly harsher condemnations of Christian Russia and its leadership. Indeed, these outlets spent four years denouncing President Donald Trump for being insufficiently anti-Russian, sometimes even accusing him of being a Russian puppet. A couple of years ago such extremely irresponsible behavior had led the late Prof. Stephen Cohen of Princeton and New York Universities, an eminent Russia scholar, to declare that the threat of global nuclear war was as great as it had been during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1963, and we can only imagine what he would be saying today.

But in many respects, the near-total silence of the media on some matters is just as dangerous as their jingoistic anti-Russian rhetoric on others.

Several months ago, the Russian government declared it had obtained hard evidence that a number of Ukrainian biolabs funded by America had spent years producing illegal biological warfare weapons for planned use against Russia. Both Glenn Greenwald and Tucker Carlson noted that the statements made by Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland in her Congressional Testimony seemed to confirm the reality of these remarkable Russian claims. But virtually every other mainstream Western journalist either ignored this explosive issue or ridiculed the Russian charges.

Then a few weeks ago, Lieutenant-General Igor Kirillov, head of Russia’s Radiation, Chemical, and Biological Defense Forces, held a public briefing at which he expanded on those accusations, suggesting that the Covid virus had been created by America as an illegal bioweapon and deliberately released in an attack. The disease soon spread worldwide, killing some 18 million people, including many hundreds of thousands of Russians and more than a million Americans, while disrupting the lives of many billions. If that Russian charge were substantiated, such an Covid biowarfare attack would rank as one of the most important events in the history of the world, probably only exceeded in significance by the two world wars.

Yet none of those shocking claims by a top Russian general were ever reported in the American media, and when the Russian Foreign Ministry tweeted them out, its account was suspended by Twitter for distributing “false information.” Apparently, our response to extremely disturbing information is to censor it, under the Ostrich-like principle that “what we don’t know can’t hurt us.”

But such total media suppression merely prevents the American public—and American elected officials and policy-makers—from obtaining an accurate knowledge of the world, and this is an extremely dangerous situation. Over the years, I’ve often characterized America as a regime run by its Ministry of Propaganda, and last month I emphasized the importance of dethroning America’s reigning Lords of Illusion.

Our elites regard Russia as our bitter international adversary, so perhaps a case could be made that our popular media organs should avoid providing a public platform for that country’s officials, or even covering the presumably self-serving accusations of its top military commanders. But there is another recent example of media silence that is impossible to justify under any circumstances.

For decades, Prof. Jeffrey Sachs of Columbia University has ranked as a pillar of our academic establishment, and in 2020 he was selected to chair our Covid Commission, created to investigate all aspects of the deadly epidemic that had taken so many millions of lives.

But over the last few months, Sachs has courageously repudiated the officially-endorsed Covid narrative and instead unleashed a series of bombshell accusations.

In May, he co-authored an article in the prestigious PNAS journal presenting the strong evidence that the Covid virus had been bioengineered and calling for an independent investigation of its true origins, a dramatic pronouncement ignored by almost all Western media outlets. Since then, he has expanded on that theme with a series of major public statements and interviews, declaring that the virus was apparently the product of American laboratory biotechnology, suggesting a possible connection to our country’s longstanding biowarfare programs, while repeatedly denouncing the orchestrated cover-up of all this important information. At the beginning of July, a short clip of his remarks went super-viral on Twitter, accumulating over a million views.

As the serving chairman of our Covid Commission, it is difficult to imagine any American who can speak with greater authority than Sachs on the origins of the worldwide epidemic that has killed so many millions. In any properly functioning media environment, his recent public statements would have already produced a series of banner headlines in all our major media outlets. Yet instead, scarcely any Western publications have even acknowledged his words.

Although Sachs has not directly endorsed the Russian biowarfare accusations, he does emphasize important facts that seem quite consistent with those explosive charges. Given that reality, the near absolute blackout that the mainstream media has imposed upon his views seems especially reprehensible.

For example, last Monday morning the New York Times carried a major front-page story by Steven Lee Myers, one of the newspaper’s “misinformation specialists,” who denounced and ridiculed the Russian biowarfare accusations, which he explicitly characterized as “falsehoods.” According to the article, the Russian government has declared that America is in violation of the 1975 Biological Weapons Convention and therefore invoked its authority to hold formal hearings in Geneva to present the evidence and allow evaluation of those claims, the first such session in a quarter century. Yet this obviously momentous development was dismissed as self-evidently false propaganda. Early in his piece, Myers stated that “Russia has offered no proof” while failing to note that the Russians had called the hearing so that they could provide exactly such proof to the world’s representatives.

But the most outrageous omission in that lengthy 1,900 word piece was the complete absence of any mention of Jeffrey Sachs or his explosive allegations, although the Russians had repeatedly cited him. The Times obviously feared to inform its readers that American chairman of the Covid Commission was accusing his own government of an ongoing cover-up of the origins of the virus, a position that might seem to lend credibility to the Russian charges.

According to the Times, nearly 4,000 articles have already appeared in the Russian media this year promoting their biowarfare claims. This surely demonstrates the perceived importance of the issue, and many of the more recent pieces have included Sachs’ revelations. So most Russians may now be aware of these important facts, but virtually all American media outlets have totally ignored them, carefully maintaining the ignorance of our own population.

Thus, our country is faced with a bizarre and almost unprecedented situation. The Russian government has publicly accused America of creating and deliberately releasing the Covid virus in a biowarfare attack, thereby killing 18 million people around the world including more than a million of our own citizens. And over the last few months, Prof. Jeffrey Sachs, chairman of our own Covid Commission, has confirmed that the virus was bioengineered and denounced an ongoing cover-up of its true origins. Yet virtually all of our major media outlets have maintained a near-absolute silence on those developments, failing to inform any Americans of those bombshell revelations.

These circumstances might seem to provide a perfect opening for the alternative media to play a crucial role, covering the important matters that a compromised mainstream media has so carefully avoided. And such heavy alternative coverage might eventually force mainstream outlets to follow along and report those facts as well, lest they be abandoned as uselessly dishonest by too many of their regular readers.

Unfortunately, with very few exceptions, alternative media outlets have remained just as silent as their mainstream rivals.

Since early 2020, Covid-related issues have become a central focus of alternative media coverage, but the dramatic declarations by Prof. Sachs and the Russian government have attracted only a tiny sliver of interest. Last month, Nathan Robinson interviewed Sachs for his Current Affairs webzine and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. did the same for his podcast, but otherwise the cupboard seems bare.

I’m not even sure that the bombshell biowarfare accusations of the Russian government have received any significant alternative attention outside of Russia’s own RT and Sputnik outlets. It’s quite possible that last week’s front-page Times story ridiculing those Russian charges constituted more coverage than the sum-total previously received over the last few months across the entire alternative media landscape, with the obvious exception of our own website.

What explains the remarkable silence of so many alternative media journalists? I think part of the answer is fear—fear of a story that is so potentially gigantic, fear of being labeled a Russian agent, fear of deplatforming. Some alternative podcasters have explicitly told me this, and I suspect that those concerns are widespread across their community.

A few weeks ago I published a piece arguing that a story may sometimes be just too big for the mainstream media to consider covering, and the same may obviously apply to many elements of the alternative media.

However, I think a far larger factor in this pattern of silence is that over the last year or more so much of the alternative media has become totally focused upon an entirely different aspect of the Covid issue, namely the vaccines developed to combat the disease. A huge and militant anti-vaxxing movement has suddenly appeared from almost nowhere, probably now encompassing some 15-30% of the American population and almost monopolizing online Covid discourse.

Most fervent anti-vaxxers have only slight interest in the origins of the virus itself, which they dismiss as unimportant, and many of them doubt that Covid is dangerous or even that it exists, while they believe that the vaccines are enormously deadly. As an extreme example of this regrettable tendency, a couple of months ago Dr. David Martin, a prominent and influential anti-vaxxer, warned that up to one-third of the American population would soon be dead from vaxxing, and demanded Nuremberg-style tribunals for those responsible for this looming disaster. Political activists or alternative websites can devote only a limited amount of time and space to a given topic, and the anti-vaxxing crusade has absorbed a huge fraction of all Covid-related interest.

My own views on vaccines have always been quite mainstream, and I view the anti-vaxxing movement as a tremendously misguided distraction, so much so that I have speculated it might have been deliberately fostered for exactly that reason. If the most energetic and vocal elements of the alternative media focus overwhelmingly upon vaxxing issues and pay little attention to the virus itself, they are much less likely to cover the dramatic public pronouncements of the Russian government or Prof. Sachs, whose views on vaccines seem as conventional as my own. In a recent piece I discussed the plausible possibility that over the last dozen years, a strategy of “cognitive infiltration” has been used by disinformation operatives to divert the conspiracy-community down blind alleys and away from those issues most threatening to the political establishment. The sudden appearance of the massive anti-vaxxing movement may be a perfect example of this:

There exist some indications of which issues are truly feared by our ruling elites and which are merely considered irritations. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is the prominent public figure who leads the moderate wing of the anti-vaxxing movement, and his anti-Fauci book became a #1 Amazon bestseller despite unrelenting media hostility. Over the last couple of years, his Children’s Health Defense website has gotten huge traffic by specializing in articles fiercely condemning the alleged dangers of vaccines. But just one day before he released his recent podcast interview with Prof. Sachs on Covid origins, his website was suddenly banned by both Facebook and Instagram. Apparently, some topics are much more threatening than others.

For whatever combination of reasons, over the last few months alternative outlets have chosen to boycott Prof. Sachs almost as thoroughly as have their mainstream counterparts. If this continues, the alternative media would have revealed itself to be politically bankrupt and useless on a public issue of the greatest global importance, being no better than the New York Times, CNN, or any of the other mainstream media publications they so regularly denounce. I would argue that providing sufficiently strong coverage of Sachs’ dramatic Covid revelations has become the litmus test of credibility within the alternative media community, and so far least, nearly all alternative publications seem to have failed that test.

However, that could easily change. Most journalists, whether mainstream or alternative, take comfort from traveling in herds and reporting on the same stories emphasized by most of their colleagues. So if one or two sufficiently influential alternative outlets begin making Sachs and his statements a leading issue, many other outlets may quickly begin to do the same.

I’d like to think that my own analysis of the Covid epidemic might eventually follow a similar trajectory. Since April 2020 I have published a long series of articles arguing that there is strong perhaps even overwhelming evidence that the Covid outbreak was due to an American biowarfare attack against China (and Iran), probably carried out by elements of the Trump Administration but without the President’s knowledge or authorization. Taken together, these articles have been viewed nearly 800,00o times, while also being collected into a freely downloadable eBook and an Amazon print paperback.

Over the last couple of years a fierce debate regarding my Covid hypothesis has raged on the discussion-threads of our own website, encompassing over 18,000 comments totaling more than 2.6 million words. During these lengthy exchanges, I have encountered few strong arguments against this scenario, other than the claim that even rogue elements of the Trump Administration could not have possibly done anything so reckless and foolish, having such disastrous consequences.

But I think the most plausible reason a casual reader might have for disregarding my analysis has been the argument from silence. If my case were actually as strong as I claimed, surely it would not have been totally ignored for so long by virtually every mainstream and alternative journalist in America. Only obviously fatal flaws in logic could explain such a lack of coverage.

However, the utter silence that has similarly greeted the public revelations of Jeffrey Sachs and the accusations of top Russian generals suggests otherwise. If almost every media outlet in the West can ignore the headline-worthy public statements of the chairman of the Covid Commission, it is easy to understand why they would have done the same to my own far more controversial and far less solidly-established analysis.

But I’d like to believe that once there is a major breach in the dam, an enormous flood of long-avoided information will soon flow outward.

Toxic, Metallic Compounds Found in All COVID Vaccine Samples Analyzed by German Scientists

via The Epoch Times

A group of independent German scientists found toxic components — mostly metallic — in all the COVID-19 vaccine samples they analyzed, “without exception” using modern medical and physical measuring techniques.

The Working Group for COVID Vaccine Analysis says that some of the toxic elements found inside the AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Moderna vaccine vials were not listed in the ingredient lists from the manufacturers.

The following metallic elements were found in the vaccines:

  • Alkali metals: caesium (Cs), potassium (K)
  • Alkaline earth metals: calcium (Ca), barium (Ba)
  • transition metals: cobalt (Co), iron (Fe), chromium (Cr), titanium (Ti)
  • Rare earth metals: cerium (Ce), gadolinium (Gd)
  • Mining group/metal: aluminum (Al)
  • Carbon group: silicon (Si) (partly support material/slide)
  • Oxygen group: sulphur (S)

These substances, furthermore, “are visible under the dark-field microscope as distinctive and complex structures of different sizes, can only partially be explained as a result of crystallization or decomposition processes, [and] cannot be explained as contamination from the manufacturing process,” the researchers found.

They declared the findings as preliminary.

The findings “build on the work of other researchers in the international community who have described similar findings, such as Dr. Young, Dr. Nagase, Dr. Botha, Dr. Flemming, Dr. Robert Wakeling and Dr. Noak,” Dr. Janci Lindsay, Ph.D., a toxicologist not involved in the study, told The Epoch Times.

“The number and consistency of the allegations of contamination alone, coupled with the eerie silence from global safety and regulatory bodies, is troublesome and perplexing in terms of ‘transparency’ and continued allegations by these bodies that the genetic vaccines are ‘safe,’” Lindsay added.

Helena Krenn, the group’s founder, submitted the findings to German government authorities for review.

“We had submitted it to the participants of the government and further addresses from newspapers with the platform open-debate.eu, only in Germany, Austria and Suisse,” Krenn told The Epoch Times.

Two other important findings were that blood samples from the vaccinatedhad “marked changes” and that more side effects were observed in proportion to “the stability of the envelope of lipid nanoparticles.”

A lipid nanoparticle is an extremely small particle, a fat-soluble membrane that is the cargo of the messenger RNA (mRNA).

Methodology

“Using a small sample of live blood analyses from both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, we have determined that artificial intelligence (AI) can distinguish with 100% reliability between the blood of the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This indicates that the COVID-19 vaccines can affect long-term changes in the composition of the blood of the person vaccinated without that person being aware of these changes,” the study states.

The findings of acute and chronic physiological changes to the blood of those inoculated with the vaccines, consistently discerned via AI software, “also echoes the findings of many other researchers and support the contentions of contamination and/or adulteration,” Lindsay said.

“We have established that the COVID-19 vaccines consistently contain, in addition to contaminants, substances the purpose of which we are unable to determine,” their study says.

The group consists of 60 members, including physicians, physicists, chemists, microbiologists and alternative health practitioners, supported by lawyers and psychologists.

anomalous objects janssen vaccineAnomalous objects in Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vector vaccine. It should be noted that objects of this type were not found in all of the samples. Image credit: Helen Krenn

The scientists claim that their results have been cross-confirmed using the following measuring techniques: “Scanning Electron Microscopy, Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy, Mass Spectroscopy, Inductively Coupled Plasma Analysis, Bright Field Microscopy, Dark Field Microscopy and Live Blood Image Diagnostics, as well as analysis of images using Artificial Intelligence.”

The analysts explain that they have been cooperating with other groups in different countries that have been executing similar investigations and have obtained results consistent with their own.

“The results from our analysis of the vaccines can, consequently, be regarded as cross-validated,” the summary report of their findings states.

“It should be acknowledged of course that [German Working Group’s] work is described as ‘Preliminary Findings,’ not yet published in a peer-reviewed journal and that chain of custody as well as the identity of many of these scientists is unknown.”

“However, in this heavily charged and censored climate when it comes to any challenges to the ‘safety and efficacy’ of the genetic vaccines, I myself can attest to the difficulties in conducting the basic research, much less publishing that same research in a peer-reviewed journal, in order to get at these questions as well as disseminate the findings,” Lindsay said.

Covid Injection Mandates Are Now Illegal in Costa Rica

via The Exposé

On Wednesday, the new President of Costa Rica, Rodrigo Chaves, and the Minister of Health, Jocelyn Chacón, confirmed that the vaccine against covid-19 will not be mandatory in Costa Rica.

Chaves had promised that when his term began on 8 May he would end the mandatory Covid injection policy. In his first decree after taking office, Chaves dropped his country’s mask mandate and the requirement that public employees get vaccinated.

In November 2021, Costa Rica became the first country in the world to announce it would make Covid injections mandatory for children. Costa Rica has long mandated vaccines, and such requirements are supported by the country’s laws. However, three months after the announcement, Costa Ricans were still bitterly divided over mandatory Covid injections for children.

“Today [3 August] vaccines are no longer mandatory and any action against someone who does not want to be vaccinated is a violation of the law,” the president emphasised.

The announcement came after almost 93% of Costa Ricans had their first dose, 87% had a second, 51% a third and 10% a fourth dose, according to the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social – the Costa Rican Social Security Fund which is in charge of most of the nation’s public health sector.

As well as the immediate end to compulsory vaccination Chaves said that there will be an investigation into the contracts signed by the previous government as he believes excessive amounts of doses were purchased.

According to the World Health Organisation, as of 29 July 2022, a total of 11,504,591 vaccine doses had been administered in a country with an estimated population of 5,2 million. The previous government of Carlos Alvarado signed contracts with Pfizer and AstraZeneca.

“We are going to investigate why it is that they bought so many vaccines when the information was that the market had been saturated,” Chaves said in his weekly press conference after the Governing Council.

According to Chacón, there was an intention of the Commission to “force people to get vaccinated to spend the vaccines,” which, at first, she did not want to believe but said that now “I see it differently.”

As of Wednesday, AstraZeneca had completed delivery according to their contract, but Pfizer had not. With Chaves’ decision, deliveries of vaccines pending in the Pfizer contract were suspended until further notice.

Corona Scamdemic Most Likely Explanation

Q-ship on: @Ron Unz

Mr. Unz,

I think the evidence that SARS CoV-2 is a bioengineered virus is very strong, and your hypothesis that it was released deliberately is quite compelling. I have had some doubts as to your posited motive-that it was released primarily as a biowarfare attack against China [and Iran]. It had to be known to those who authorized the release of the virus how contagious it was, and how likely it was to spread beyond the borders of China. Perhaps they were as reckless as you suggested that they may be, but this part of the hypothesis seemed to strain credulity.

I think that those who released the virus fully intended for it to spread, and the primary reason for this may well have been financial. According to the article linked below, the repo crisis of September 17, 2019 was still on going at the end of 2019, and a definitive cure had not yet been found. While a significant amount of liquidity had already been injected into the repo market by the Federal Reserve, it appears that much more was needed to prevent contagion from spreading into a 2008 type crisis or worse. To minimize loss of confidence in the system, some external event to justify injecting trillions of dollars into the banking system would certainly have been useful. A highly communicable virus necessitating lockdowns and huge amounts of government relief to make up for the closing down of the economy might just be what the Fed wanted/needed at the time.

For a natural origin of the virus to be plausible, it would have to appear to originate in a part of the world where such a virus could be endemic, such as China. Wuhan, with the Institute of Virology could have provided a potentially convenient second source of the virus. It does seem like the outbreak in Iran was a separate bio warfare attack that was aimed at the Iranian leadership.

UK Medicine Regulator Confirms COVID-19 Vaccines are at Least a Shocking 7,402% Deadlier than all other Vaccines Combined

via THE EXPOSÉ

The UK Medicine Regulator has confirmed that over a period of nineteen months the Covid-19 Vaccines have caused at least 5.5x as many deaths as all other available vaccines combined in the past 21 years.

This means, that when compared side by side, the Covid-19 injections are a shocking 7,402% more deadly than every other vaccine available in the UK.

A Freedom of Information request was made via email to the Medicine and Healthcare product Regulatory Agency (MHRA) on the 6th August 2021 in which a Mr Anderson asked the MHRA the following questions –

  • How many Deaths have there been from all Covid-19 vaccines?
  • Are there any other reporting AI system monitoring systems like the Yellow Card scheme?
  • Are Covid-19 Vaccines still in trials?
  • How many deaths has there been in last 20 years by previous Vaccines without Covid-19 Vaccines?
  • What happens if a there is a new vaccine or new drug? What process and monitoring do they go through?
  • What cut off point will the MHRA say a vaccine or drug is unsafe for humans?

Source

The MHRA responded with the usual “we do not hold this information”, as seen time and time again from Government departments.

However, they did confirm that they are using other epidemiological studies, anonymised GP-based electronic healthcare records and international experience to proactively monitor safety alongside the spontaneous reports received via the Yellow Card scheme.

The MHRA also confirmed that the current Covid-19 vaccines on offer in the United Kingdom are only under a temporary authorisation and that these authorisations do not constitute a marketing authorisation.

In answer to the question asked on the number of deaths due to all other vaccines in the past twenty years the MHRA provided the usual robotic response about how great the Covid-19 vaccines are and how they are the “single most effective treatment for preventing serious illness due to Covid-19” but what they did not do is say that they “do not hold this information”.

Instead, they revealed that they had received a total of 404 reported adverse reactions to all available vaccines (excluding the Covid-19 injections) associated with a fatal outcome between the 1st January 2001 and the 25th August 2021 – a time frame of 20 years and 8 months.

But how does that fare against the number of reported adverse reactions to all temporarily authorised Covid-19 vaccines associated with a fatal outcome?

Well, since the Pfizer injection was rolled out in December 2020 there have been 808 reported deaths as of 13th July 22, meaning that in just 19 months, this “vaccine” alone outnumbers the deaths due to all other vaccines combined in the past 20 years.

Source

However, the AstraZeneca viral vector injection has fared much worse with 1,294 deathsbeing reported to the MHRA since January 2020, more than three times as many deaths as what has been reported due to all other vaccines in the past 20 years.

Source

There have also been 62 reported deaths due to the Moderna jab since it was first administered in June 2021, and49 deaths where the brand of Covid-19 vaccine was not specified in the report.

Therefore, up to July 13th 2022, there have been a grand total of 2,213 deaths reported to the MHRA as adverse reactions to all available Covid-19 vaccines in the United Kingdom since the beginning of 2021.

Meaning there have officially been 5.5x as many deaths in just 19 months due to the Covid-19 vaccines than there have been due to every other available vaccine combined since the year 2001.

Twenty years and 8 months is a period that is 13.7 x longer than the nineteen-month period where the Covid-19 vaccines have been rolled out.

Therefore, the number of deaths reported to all other vaccines combined in the same time frame of nineteen months equates to 29.5 deaths.

This means the Covid-19 injections are proving to be a shocking 7,402% more deadly than every other vaccine available in the UK.

In Praise of Cynicism

by Emmet Sweeney

The herd instinct is as much a characteristic of people as of animals. There is an inherent desire to blend in with the crowd, to not stand out, to not be seen as odd. According to evolutionary psychologists we inherited this from pre-human ancestors, where sticking with the crowd, looking and acting like all the others, helped ensure survival. Whatever one feels about evolutionary psychology, there is no question that the herd instinct is also found among people, where it manifests itself in following the latest trend – whatever trend one’s nature is drawn to; the latest fashion in clothes, or (for the more high-brow) art, literature, music, or even science. In short, moving with the times. But, whilst following the herd undoubtedly helps animals stay alive, among humans it’s just as likely to get you killed (notwithstanding the short-lived social benefits). One obvious example that springs to mind is the hordes of young men who rushed to “join up” at the beginning of World War 1. No doubt they believed, on some level at least, that they were doing a great service to their country, or perhaps the world in general, as they marched against the Germans, whom the mass media of the time had convinced them were barbarians or “Huns.” But the Germans were not barbarians, and millions of young men throughout Europe were butchered in a needless and pointless war that should never have happened in the first place.

The herd instinct also played a major part in the COVID affair of the past two-and-a-half years.

The perplexing question as to why some people saw through the COVID scam from the beginning whilst others – the great majority – fell for it hook, line, and sinker, is one that has exercised the minds of many since March 2020. Whilst it was possible to delineate broad categories of those who were liable to be believers and those liable to be skeptics, there were always almost as many exceptions as there were those who fitted the categories. In general, for example, religious people tended to be more skeptical; yet some of the most fanatical followers of the COVID-cult were also religious – including the vast majority of clergymen. Again, it was noted that the working class, especially manual workers, tended to be skeptical, but here too, many of the blue-collar class were fanatical believers – including the great majority of trade union representatives.

One very useful analysis of the problem was provided by Belgian clinical psychologist Professor Mattias Desmet. Observing how so many people accepted the COVID fear narrative uncritically, Desmet concluded that such persons were suffering from what he termed “mass formation psychosis,” a condition similar in many ways to hypnosis. The ground for this condition had been prepared beforehand, said Desmet, by the dissolution of families and communities, ongoing in Western societies for several decades. Huge numbers of people found themselves socially isolated, suffering anxiety, and living without purpose. When the COVID “crisis” was announced, the isolated masses suddenly found a new purpose – the “defeat” of COVID – as well as an object of fear (the virus). All that was needed was for everyone to abide by the measures media and governments deemed necessary for defeating the virus – masks, vaccination, and social distancing. This battle fulfilled the need for meaningfulness and connection. However, one result was that those who did not participate in the battle, and who questioned government measures and strategies, came to be viewed almost as much an enemy as the virus itself. Not only did they undermine the community’s efforts in the “war” against the virus, but they posed a threat to the continuity of the new social bond.

There is much to be said for Desmet’s analysis, and he undoubtedly accurately described a substantial segment of the modern population in the urbanized West. However, his thesis could perhaps be criticized for a few omissions. First and foremost, it really should come as no surprise that most people came to believe there was a deadly virus at large, given the unrelenting fearmongering on the part of the media and the government who, it should be remembered, effectively and completely suppressed any counter-narrative. The great majority of the public, in short, were completely unaware that a counter-narrative existed. To them, every scientist and expert agreed that COVID was a lethal disease and that the only way to stop it was by adhering to the (ever changing) government measures. In short, many of the believers weren’t suffering from a psychosis; they just accepted the stuff the media was shovelling at them in an unrelenting stream. Secondly, the herd instinct was undoubtedly involved. “Everyone” agreed that COVID was dangerous and needed to be defeated. Since most people will go with the trend, the pressure to conform was considerable. And thirdly, huge numbers of people did quite well out of the lockdowns. Government employees, in particular, received extremely generous furlough payments for sitting at home twiddling their thumbs. If you could make a lot of money, whilst simultaneously patting yourself on the back for helping to stop a deadly plague, what’s not to like about that?

So, it wasn’t so much that believers were hypnotized or suffering mass psychosis; they just trusted the media, the government and the “general consensus.” Which brings me onto the far more interesting question of why so many did not believe the media, the government, or their friends/work-mates. The psychology of the skeptics has never been seriously considered. Sure, the media and government branded us variously as “conspiracy theorists,” “fascists,” or just “nut-cases,” but these were nothing more than terms of abuse – epithets hurled at us in an effort to cow us and make us conform. One epithet they did not to my knowledge hurl – and one which might more reasonably have described us – was “cynics.”

Cynicism and cynics have had a bad press in modern times, and one can readily see why: It is not in the interests of the great and the good (as our rulers like to style themselves) to be called out for their empty posturing and rampant hypocrisy. This, after all, is an age that has replaced all real virtue with virtue-signalling. This is an age where Jeffrey Epstein can be described, in an online dictionary, as a “philanthropist.” But cynicism is not, as the powerful would have it, a noxious mental attitude which leads one to view the world through a jaundiced eye. Nor are cynics joyless curmudgeons, as many imagine. Cynics can be personable, friendly, and good company. The one and only thing that separates the cynic from the non-cynic is that he/she sees through your motives almost immediately. As such, cynicism, rather than a character flaw is, in my opinion, a very useful survival tool, and perhaps even more. The ancient cynics – who, by the way, were highly respected philosophers – saw right through the posturing of the great men of their time. Recall the famous story of Diogenes who, when approached by Alexander “the Great” with an offer of any favour the king could bestow, asked Alexander to stop blocking his sunlight. But the cynics also saw through their own posturing. Indeed, the primary goal of the ancient cynic was to identify and uproot his own hypocrisy and egotism. When a man knows himself, they argued, he will learn the truth about his own ignoble motives; he will see the serpent of jealousy and envy lurking at the root of even his closest friendships. As movie reviewer Barry Norman put it some years ago: “This week is Oscar Week, and the air is full of the wailing and cries of anguish of actors who have been passed over for an Oscar, and of the laughter of their friends.” When a man understands this about himself, said the cynics, he will be able to identify it in others, and society at large. And it was for that reason that the cynics scorned convention. They scorned to run with the herd and drift with the current trend.

As might be imagined, the cynics viewed human nature as essentially selfish, which in fact accorded well with the Christian doctrine of Original Sin, but which is diametrically opposed to the current – and trendy – notion of the inherent goodness of humanity. And it should be noted that this poisonous idea (man’s default goodness), attributed with some justification to Rousseau, has caused havoc in virtually every area of modern life.

Having searched long and hard for the common denominator among rejecters of COVID-ism, I am now fairly certain that cynicism is it. An outlook which scorns popular conventions and which automatically looks for the catch in everything, was far more likely to see through the COVID-deception. Because for the cynic, everyone has an angle, everyone has an agenda; and usually it’s not for the benefit of others. The cynic asks, first and foremost, cui bono? Cynics of course are found in all walks of life and in all professions. They’re also found in all religions and in no religions at all. And yet there were indeed certain patterns; certain areas where the cynics seemed to be concentrated. Many religious people, it has been noted, saw through the COVID-scam, but many did not. And here’s the interesting thing: As a rule, it was what we might call the unconventionally religious who saw through it; among Catholics, followers of tradition and attenders of the Latin Mass; among Protestants, traditionalist evangelicals. The “mainstream” (how aptly named) joined the COVID-cult enthusiastically. Skeptics and cynics too were heavily concentrated among the working class – especially amongst manual workers and those employed in difficult and dangerous occupations. Living in a harsh reality, the blue-collar worker, if he is not a cynic at the start, tends to become one quite quickly. Blue-collar workers vote less frequently in elections than do professionals. Many do not vote at all. I am reminded of a classic statement of the cynic’s philosophy by a coal-miner colleague of my father’s in Scotland several decades ago. During a break, some of the men got to discussing politics: What was the best system, was it socialism, communism, capitalism, or some other ism? Will Rhodes (for that was the philosopher’s name) said nothing during all of this, and eventually one of the men asked his opinion (Will was quite old and was respected for his age and experience; he had travelled the world with the British Army). As my dad told the story, Will spat a large tobacco spittle into the dirt and answered; “There’s only one f..ing ism, and that’s me-ism.”

Such a person, one might imagine, would not be easily convinced that politicians, newspaper editors, or pharmaceutical CEO’s had his best interests at heart.

What then makes a cynic? In my opinion, a cynic can be born or made. Repeated betrayals, dashed hopes and dashed dreams, can certainly go a long way towards the finished product. When Saint Paul said, “Put not your trust in men, for all men are liars,” he expressed an admirable cynic sentiment, as did Jesus when He addressed those around him as “You, who are evil.” But it seems to me that the true cynic is not just the product of others’ betrayals; the true cynic is the man or woman who has suffered some deep wound that has threatened his/her very existence or sanity and as a result of which has come to properly know himself/herself. Finding the shadow lurking there, he recoils in horror at himself and recoils even more when he realizes that the same shadow lurks in all other people. Almost nothing that we do does not involve a large element of self-interest. Realizing the truth about himself, the cynic philosopher sought to act, at least a little, from genuinely non-selfish motives. And that should be the goal of all us modern cynics.

Macron’s Minority Government Defeated on Vaccine Passports


French President Emmanuel Macron suffered a humiliating setback in parliament after his vaccine passport scheme was defeated.


Macron’s minority government wanted to extend the policy whereby anyone entering France has to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test.
However, the right-wing populist National Rally (RN), the hard-left La France Insoumise (LFI) and the right-wing Republicains (LR) all united to vote against the policy.
Macron’s government lost the vote by a margin of 219 votes to 195.
“The bill’s defeat was met with wild cheering and a standing ovation from opposition lawmakers, in footage that was widely circulated on social media,” reports the Telegraph.

Covid Scamdemic Updates

Canada resuming mandatory random COVID-19 testing for air travellers | 14 July 2022 | The federal government is bringing back mandatory random COVID-19 testing for air travellers coming into Canada, starting July 19. A little more than a month after pausing the measure, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) announced Thursday it will be re-implementing random testing for fully vaccinated air travellers arriving into the country at four major Canadian airports: Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal and Toronto… The mandatory random testing only applies to fully-vaccinated travellers. Unless exempt, unvaccinated travellers will still have to test on days one and eight of their mandatory 14-day quarantine. If a fully-vaccinated traveller tests positive, a 10-day isolation is required, regardless of the province or territory in which the traveller resides. Mandatory random testing continues at land border points of entry, the government added.

Jacinda Ardern will bring back hated Covid restrictions as New Zealand battles its biggest-ever outbreak – with 11,000 cases a day | 13 July 2022 | New Zealand is set to tighten its Covid restrictions and will hand out more free masks and rapid antigen tests as the virus threatens to run out of control [in one of the most heavily vaccinated countries in the world]. Covid-19 Response Minister Ayesha Verrall is expected to announce the measures on Thursday as the country battles an outbreak that is seeing more than 11,000 new cases a day. The move to hand out more RATs is aimed at getting more people to test and isolate if they are found to have the disease. New Zealand has a “traffic light” system to grade Covid warnings and currently the country sits on Orange.

Uruguay Halts COVID-19 Vaccine for Kids Under 13, Judge Demands Government Officials Turn Over Pfizer Contracts | 8 July 2022 | Uruguay suspended COVID-19 vaccinesfor children under 13 after a judge on Thursday issued an injunction halting vaccinations in that age group until government officials turn over its contracts with Pfizer. Uruguayan government officials and Pfizer were ordered on Wednesday to appear in court after Judge Alejandro Recarey gave them 48 hours to present detailed information on Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine while the court considered an injunction request to halt COVID-19 vaccinations for children 5 and older. The government said a confidentiality clause in the contract prevents it from producing the documents, The Washington Post reported. According to ABC News, the judge received answers to 18 questions about the safety and chemical composition of COVID-19 vaccines, signed by Health Minister Daniel Salinas, but did not turn over the contracts.

UK Government: Children Who Received COVID Vaccine Are 30,200% More Likely to Die Than Kids Not Injected | 8 July 2022 | The government of the United Kingdom is admitting that the shots are killing kids in a published report that proves those children that took the jab are 30,200% more likely to die than those who have not received one. From The Expose:The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has questionably authorised emergency use of both the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA Covid-19 injections for use among children aged 6 months and above, despite the UK Government admitting the Covid-19 Vaccine is killing children after it published data via the Office for National Statistics proving children are 82 to 303x more likely to die following Covid-19 vaccination than children who have not had the Covid-19 vaccine. On June 17, 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) criminally extended the emergency use authorisation of the mRNA Covid-19 injections for use in children as young as 6 months.

Rights Group Files First Lawsuit Against Hospitals Denying Transplants to Unvaccinated Patients | 7 July 2022 | A national legal rights organization has filed the first of what it says will be dozens of lawsuits against U.S. health care facilities that are denying patients organ transplants for not being vaccinated against COVID-19. In the first complaint–which was filed against the University of Michigan’s transplant center–the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) argues the hospitals are carrying out illegal and unconstitutional policies by requiring medical treatment against the will of a patient. “Individuals in the United States have the inherent and fundamental Constitutional Right given by God, not any government board, to seek or to refuse medical treatment or any part of a course of medical treatment,” PJI states in its lawsuit it served on July 5 to the board of regents that oversees the University of Michigan.

Army Cuts 60,000 Unvaccinated Guard and Reserve Soldiers From Training and Pay as COVID Vaccine Mandate Deadline Passes | 7 July 2022 | About 60,000 Army National Guard members and Army Reserve soldiers who refused to comply with a Department of Defense (DOD) COVID-19 vaccine mandate are no longer allowed to participate in their military duties and were cut off from some of their pay and benefits, Army officialsannounced July 1. Of the more than 40,000 members of the Guard who remain unvaccinated, 14,000 have said they do not intend to ever receive a COVID-19 vaccine, Guard officials told CBS News. Approximately 22,000 Reserve soldiers have refused to get vaccinated.

COVID Boosters Might Be Less Than 20% Effective After a Few Months – Study | 8 July 2022 | COVID booster shots appear to be less than 20% effective against infection with the omicron variant of the virus just a few months after the booster is given, a new study found this week. The Italian study, which is a pre-print review and re-analysis of prior studies and has not been peer-reviewed, suggests boosters are effective in the short term to restore protection against the virus. But over just a few months, that wanes quickly. “Booster doses were found to restore the VE [vaccine effectiveness] to levels comparable to those acquired soon after administration of the second dose; however, a fast decline of booster VE against Omicron was observed, with less than 20% VE against infection and less than 25% VE against symptomatic disease at 9 months from the booster administration,” the authors wrote in the paper released Wednesday.

Natural Immunity 97 Percent Effective Against Severe COVID-19 After 14 Months – Study | 10 July 2022 | The protection against severe illness from so-called natural immunity remains superior to that bestowed by COVID-19 vaccines, according to a new study. People who survived COVID-19 infection and weren’t vaccinated had sky-high protection against severe or fatal COVID-19, researchers in Qatar found. “Effectiveness of primary infection against severe, critical, or fatal COVID-19 reinfection was 97.3 percent…irrespective of the variant of primary infection or reinfection, and with no evidence for waning. Similar results were found in sub-group analyses for those ≥50 years of age,” Dr. Laith Abu-Raddad of Weill Cornell Medicine–Qatar and colleagues said after studying long-term natural immunity in unvaccinated people. That percentage is higher than the protection from COVID-19 vaccines, according to other studies and real-world data.

Hong Kong Unveils Covid Quarantine Bracelets

The tracking devices will be mandatory for those who contract the coronavirus and choose to isolate at home

Hong Kong is set to introduce electronic tracking bracelets for citizens who decide to quarantine at home after testing positive for Covid-19, the health chief has announced. Violators of the isolation rules face hefty fines and possibly even jail time.

The territory’s secretary for health, Lo Chung-mau, announced the move during a Monday press briefing, saying the bracelets are meant to stop infected people from spreading the illness further and will operate on the ‘Leave Home Safe’ app rolled out last year.

“We have to make sure that home isolation is more precise while being humane,” Lo said, adding that the trackers will be introduced on Friday.

Breaching Hong Kong’s quarantine order could result in fines up to $3,200 and a maximum of six months behind bars. Individuals who are able to isolate at home must do so for two weeks, though will be allowed to leave if they test negative for two days in a row and have their first pair of vaccine doses.

While the territory previously required overseas arrivals to use bracelets with unique QR codes to check in and account for their movements, the gadgets were later replaced with genuine tracking tech. The system is set to be expanded, though the government has not said what type of bracelet it will use for the latest initiative.

The health secretary also noted that Hong Kong will implement a color-coded system similar to the one in place in mainland China, which labels different levels of infection risk as yellow or red. Those with the red designation will face heavy restrictions on their movement, including outright bans on entering public venues, while yellow entails lesser limits.

However, the city’s recently inaugurated chief executive, John Lee, has since stressed that the traffic light system would only apply to “a specific and small number of people,” but nonetheless argued that Hong Kong needs “some identification method” to distinguish citizens with active infections from those quarantining as a precaution.

Local officials continue to warn that Hong Kong’s Covid-19 outbreak remains “very serious,” urging residents to minimize travel and observe social distancing rules, which were just extended for another two weeks on Tuesday.

The Department of Health said it recorded 2,558 new local coronavirus cases on Tuesday, as well as another 211 infections among travelers from abroad. It did not offer a daily update for fatalities, but noted the territory had tallied 9,420 deaths in total throughout the pandemic, most of them occurring this year.
