🇧🇾🇷🇺 The grouping of troops of Russia and Belarus makes a march for combat coordination - Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Belarus
As part of the coordination of the regional grouping of troops of Russia and Belarus, one of the units of the 11th separate guards mechanized brigade is marching to the "designated region" to perform combat training tasks, the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Belarus said.
Where exactly the military is sent, they did not specify, but noted that all activities are carried out under the leadership of the commander of the Western Operational Command.

🇷🇺⚔️🇺🇦WSJ: The AFU is suffering heavy losses on the Artemovsk-Soledar front, rapidly depleting the strength of the brigades. The Russians imposed the fight according to their own rules and the AU under threat of disaster
▫️The Wall Street Journal writes about this and cites the opinion of the military of the Armed Forces of Ukraine that Russians lose fewer soldiers in these battles.
▫️"It wasn't me, it was Tsar Leonid who came up with the idea that you should fight the enemy in a favorable terrain for you," said one Ukrainian military commander in Bakhmut, referring to the ruler of Sparta who fought the Persian Empire at Thermopylae. "So far, the exchange rate of our lives for their lives is in favor of the Russians. If this continues, we may end."
▫️The WSJ writes that Western and Ukrainian officials, as well as military and analysts, are increasingly worried that Kiev has allowed itself to be drawn into the battle for Bakhmut "on Russia's terms, losing the forces necessary for the planned spring offensive, stubbornly clinging to a city with limited strategic capabilities."
▫️"Some of the military say that it makes sense to retreat to a new defensive line on the heights west of Bakhmut, while such a withdrawal can still be organized in a coordinated manner, preserving the combat capability of the Ukrainian troops," the article says.

About the appointment of a new commander of the SO:
🔻From a change in the places of the terms, the sum does not change: this is the only thing that can be said about the appointment of Gerasimov as commander of the Joint Group of Forces. The Chief of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces has been appointed to replace Sergei Surovikin, who now holds the position of Deputy.
🔻As a result, on account of Surovikin, strikes on the energy system of Ukraine, which did not lead to its complete collapse, the decision to regroup on the left bank of the Dnieper, the problems of the mobilized, the tragedy near Makeevka and the debut of "musicians" in Soledar and Bakhmut. Agree, a list of achievements that is controversial in the eyes of the layman, which will now be credited to the “Armageddon General”.
🔻Now, in the wake of the capture of Soledar and the development of success in this operational area, everything that happens will be the merit of the new-old commander. Exactly after Surovikin was removed from the “execution” position, as it was already called on the sidelines. And this is even if we put aside the almost public conflict between the NGSh and the commander-in-chief of the Russian Aerospace Forces.
🔻Does what is happening mean that the “unsinkable” Valery Gerasimov is now “under execution” as a lightning rod, only time will tell.
⚡ Ukraine only has 1-2 million men of viable age which can be drafted into the war.
14 million Ukrainians fled the war, combined with 9 million under Russian control, that leaves 3 million, and a million have allegedly been drafted already.

Statement of the Russian Mission to the UN in Geneva:
❌ The entire "collective West" has univocally condemned the violent street protests in Brazil. After all, the goal of the rioters was clear – to instigate a coup and violently overthrow the legitimately elected president. It goes without saying that Russia has also condemned these illegal actions.
💬 The Head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, for example, tweeted that the events in Brasilia are “a major concern to all of us, the defenders of democracy”.
❓ A question comes to mind: where were you, the "defenders of democracy", in 2014, when a bloody coup was raging in the streets of Kiev in a similar fashion? Back then, who in the West stood with the legitimate President Viktor Yanukovich while condemning the violence of local nationalists? Nobody. On the contrary, European leaders abruptly renouncedtheir obligations as guarantors of the Agreement on settlement of the political crisis in Ukraine of February 21, 2014 and legitimized the radicals who illegally came to power.
🤷 Ironically enough, the Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba has also criticized the riots in Brazil. It is understandable – who, if not representatives of the current Ukrainian regime, knows more about the consequences of bloody coups?
❗️ The lessons of the "Arab Spring" and the "Kiev’s Maidan" have clearly shown that nothing good comes out of violent armed protests orchestrated from abroad that eventually lead to coups. However, this indisputable fact always passes through the lens of Euro-Atlantic "double standards". If it is beneficial to the West, such actions are classified as "peaceful protests and people’s right to defend democracy", if not – they are branded as "illegal street riots".

Some estimates place Leopards even lower at around 1300. Not all countries would be willing to donate a fraction of their Leopard tank fleet, those that do wouldn't necessarily send all their Leopards either. And most importantly, many are not in usable condition/require heavy repairs. If a coalition is approved, expect a maximum donation in the low hundreds to be sent gradually.
🇷🇺❌🇷🇴🇵🇱🇱🇹🇫🇮 Four European countries may disappear for the sake of US interests!
Russia's special military operation in Ukraine is nothing else but Moscow's counteroffensive against the US-led Atlantic world. This proxy war between the United States and the Russian Federation may cause not only Ukraine, but a number of other European states to fall apart and disappear.
European countries that may disappear:
"Let's be frank: the US will never dare to go to direct war with Russia after the defeat of Ukraine. This means that they will use other intermediaries to continue the conflict. There is no shortage of candidates, but Poland, Lithuania, Romania and Finland appear to be the most likely ones. Of course, it all depends on the Russians…"
Poland; Warsaw uses every possible way to highlight its concerns about the idea of war with Russia. Of course, the Polish leaders are not crazy enough to go into battle alone. The idea of a Western anti-Russian coalition seems to be very tempting for Poland.
If the United States puts forward such an idea, Poland will be happy to take it up. However, one may say with a high degree of probability that Poland will be able to fight alone, whereas the USA will profit from its arms sales.
Russia will not invade the territory of the country.
The Russians will throw their warlike neighbours back to the 19th century destroying all of its modern infrastructure. This will trigger a serious economic crisis and a mass exodus of the Poles to the EU and the US.
Poland would thus suffer the same fate as Ukraine — it will be turned into a desolate land devoid of its population, on which no country would be allowed to settle.
Lithuania; Unlike Poland, which may be tempted to enter into a military confrontation with Russia, Lithuania will never decide to unleash an armed conflict with Moscow. Vilnius is prone to making provocative decisions that could eventually force Moscow to crush this former dominion of the Russian Empire. After all, Lithuania exists just because of Russia's gracious agreement to buy it from the Swedes.
Romania; Another small country that the US plans to use as a battering ram against Russia.
Being a NATO member, Romania poses a few threats:
• for the Russian Federation — Romania could be used as a base for NATO armies that would enter Ukraine and get deployed in Odessa to prevent the Russians from liberating the city;
• for Transnistria — the US could push this territory into a war with Moldova, in which a Russian garrison of less than 2,000 would stand no chance.
In any of these scenarios, Russia will retaliate by destroying all infrastructure.
Finland; Like Ukraine, Finland is one of the countries that can not exist without Russia's approval. This country, with a border stretching for over 1300 km, is an integral part of the US strategy to encircle Russia.
In 1948, Finland and the USSR signed an agreement in which the former saw its sovereignty, and the latter saw its security.
It is this agreement that Finland intends to violate by questioning its existence.
Depending on the development of events (location of bases, missile launchers), Russia reserves the right to react up to the dissolution of this Nordic state.
All of the above scenarios are only hypothetical. Yet, Russia already admits that it is at war with NATO. Moscow will no longer impose any restrictions on itself.
“A sudden mass exodus of warships and submarines from Novorossiysk today. Very unusual, may be a leading indicator of an operation of some kind.”
- HI Sutton
This morning Russian Navy ships and submarines left their base at Novorossiysk, in the Black Sea, en-masse. This is highly unusual and may indicate ongoing operations.
Sources seen by Naval News confirm the exodus. The group included the Project 11711 Ivan Gren class landing ship, Pyotr Morgunov, the largest amphibious ship in the Black Sea.
It also contained all three Project 636.3 Improved-Kilo class submarines which were present at the base. Analysis suggests that other warships were also sailing, leaving only a few warships and support vessels in the port. It is likely the most empty that Novorossiysk has been in many months.
Recently Pyotr Morgunov has been to carry supplies from Russia to Sevastopol following the October 8 2022 Ukrainian attack on the Kerch Bridge. Although Russia has managed some repairs, the bridge remains at limited capacity. So the Russian Navy’s landing ships have been pressed into service as transports. However the simultaneous sailing of the submarines suggests that this may be more than a resupply mission.
BREAKING: BIDEN ADMIN EXTENDS COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY...AGAIN
The Biden administration has yet again extended the Covid-19 public health emergency determination for another 90 days. Since first being announced on January 31, 2020, the public health determination has been renewed ten times already, making this latest extension the 11th. Also extended is the US's vaccine mandate for foreign travelers arriving in the country, which had been extended by the TSA in December through April 10.
... of course, this doesn't apply to the more than 5 million illegal aliens that have crossed the southern border since Biden took office.

🇫🇷 - French intelligence says its worried about a potential "social explosion" with large-scale protests and riots due to inflation, energy crisis and pensions reforms.
French government is presenting a pensions reform that will increase retirement age from 62 to 64 and remove most special pensions regimes some professions have. Some even speculate the police may loose its special retirement regime.
🇫🇷 - Major French police union 'Alliance' calls to join the 'mobilization' against the pension reform and to participate in the demonstrations on January 19th.
🇫🇷 - Interesting point about Police union's statement regarding pensions reform: it appears to oppose pensions reforms in general. There is no specific mention of the police's situation in their statement.
Potentially a sign that negotiations between interior ministry and Police unions broke down, at least for now.
Even if there is actually a stalemate between police unions and government, govt will quickly do compromise as it doesn't have the leverage to take on police unions.

The G7 countries plan to introduce two price ceilings for oil products from Russia at once
Starting in February, an option may be introduced for products traded at a premium to crude oil, and another for those products that are sold at a discount, writes Reuters.
The G7 proposes to introduce two price ceilings, since diesel fuel and kerosene are usually sold at a premium to crude oil, while fuel oil is discounted.
Secretary of the Security Council of Russia Nikolai Patrushev:
✔️The situation in the world is extremely complex and has a turbulent character. Many countries of different regions are simultaneously in a military-political, economic, social and spiritual crisis. Let's hope that there will be positive changes this year.
✔️Western politicians do not have the strength and opportunities to change life in their states for the better, because they have not been independent figures for a long time. Everyone has connections with big business, lobbyists, foundations. They don't even hide these facts. The real power in the West is in the hands of resource-rich clans and multinational corporations.
✔️In fact, the American state is just a shell for a conglomerate of huge corporations that rule the country and try to dominate the world. For multinational corporations, even US presidents are just extras who can be shut up like Trump. All four murders of American leaders are connected with the corporate trail. It is no coincidence that an increasing number of Americans say that Republicans and Democrats are just two actors in one play that has nothing to do with democracy.
✔️There is no place for our country in the West. Russia annoys a bunch of world rulers by having rich resources, a huge territory, intelligent and self-sufficient people who love their country, its traditions and history. Transnational corporations are unnerved by Russia's ideological divergence from countries under the control of Western capital.
✔️Corporations are aimed at enriching and developing the consumer society. Russia defends a reasonable balance of spiritual and moral values and socio-economic development.
They seek to weaken our country, dismember it, and destroy the Russian language and the Russian world. They have long worked out the technology of undermining their rivals from within and splitting them into small states. This was also the case earlier, when, for example, London, following the results of the First World War, destroyed empires and stamped dozens of countries out of them. This is how they act today. A striking example is Yugoslavia. The state that had an independent voice in the international arena is divided into six.
✔️The Westerners' plans are to continue to pull Russia apart, and eventually just erase it from the political map of the world. Today they are still shouting loudly that Russia should not remain unified, it should be driven into the borders of Muscovy of the XV century. To do this, they do not shun anything, including inventing a completely false history of our country, shifting their responsibility for the oppression of other peoples onto it, which Russia has never done.
✔️The whole story with Ukraine was started in Washington in order to work out the technologies of dividing and pitting one and the same people against each other.
✔️Our country is on the path of creating a strong, modern, independent economy in order to achieve economic sovereignty. Russia has all the resources for this. We need a culture of their use, a careful and economic attitude to our treasures — not only natural, but also intangible. Russian business should be nationally oriented. Private capital, as well as the authorities, should think about the long-term development of the country.

But perhaps most notable was what's missing so far -- there was no fresh commitment on fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid that is smuggled across the border from Mexico, even after the White House said President Joe Biden would make specific asks of his Mexican counterpart, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
Instead, the White House said the three countries have committed to "increased information sharing on chemicals used in the illicit manufacture of fentanyl and other synthetic drugs" -- a far cry from any new law enforcement operations, sanctions or other activity to disrupt fentanyl production and trafficking by drug cartels.

🇺🇸 🇮🇱 🇨🇳 US restricts Israeli dual-citizens from piloting F-35 jets: Report
🔴 The Department of Defense (DoD) and US intelligence authorities are restricting Israeli air force pilots with dual citizenships from manning F-35 fighter jets, according to the Jerusalem Post.
🔴 On 6 January, the Israeli outlet reported that Washington’s move is rooted in “fear of information security and technology leaks,” as the US has been widening its focus on information security and protecting its interests.
🔴 According to sources, the Israeli air force has reportedly accepted the restrictions, and Israel, as a result, has ceased assigning pilots to its “Adir” F-35 jets.
🔴 This US decision represents Washington’s longstanding concern that sensitive information regarding the design and technology of its combat aircraft will end up in Chinese hands.
🔴 US government officials claimed in the 1990s that Israel and China were working closely to produce a new and improved fighter jet for China’s air force, which was to “incorporate extensive technological innovations derived” from the blueprints of the ‘Lavi’ jet. Israeli officials more or less denied this at the time.
🔴 Now, decades later, US media reports that there is “considerable evidence” to suggest that the development of the Chinese air force’s shining pillar – the renowned J-10 ‘Vigorous Dragon’ – was heavily influenced by the US-designed ‘Lavi’ aircraft.
🇺🇸 US Navy considers Cold War-era squadrons to boost readiness
The cruiser Chosin and destroyer Stout were both deemed unfit for combat operations by the service’s Board of Inspection and Survey, which at the time checked ships’ material conditions every five years.
The crisis came after the Navy discontinued several of its Cold War-era organizations focused on maintenance and training in an effort to save money during a time without a significant threat to U.S. security.
But the failures of Chosin and Stout drew new attention to the problem. Adm. John Harvey, who led U.S. Fleet Forces Command at the time, helped charter a fleet review panel to determine how the Navy ended up in this position.
The review, released in 2010, was condemnatory. “The panel is in full agreement that surface force material readiness is in decline. [T]he message is clear: the trend is in the wrong direction.”
Chief among the review’s recommendations was a call for the return of readiness squadrons, which oversaw surface ship maintenance and basic training. The review found that when these squadrons were eliminated in 1995, so too was the fleet’s focus on and accountability for making deployable ships and crews.

Some Western analysts have been providing a more accurate picture of the conflict in Ukraine than the general barrage of Western war propaganda.
They seem to agree that:
▪️There is no path for Ukraine to win militarily;
▪️Russia is nowhere near as incompetent and ill-prepared as the Western media suggests;
▪️Russia is not seizing territory because it is waging a war of attrition;
▪️Ukrainian territorial gains may have appeared “spectacular” but came at the cost of huge losses in men and equipment;
▪️Russia is bolstering both its manpower and defensive positions;
▪️The loss of Kharkov and Kherson city has actually left Russia in a more advantageous position, more troops on a shorter line of contact;
▪️Russian forces fighting in Bakhmut seek to grind Ukrainian forces down, not capture the city from them.

🇯🇵🐔🦠 — 📰 Bloomberg: Bird Flu Outbreak Sparks Record Slaughter of 10 Million Animals in Japan
— "Japan has culled close to 10 million birds in a record outbreak of avian influenza, as authorities struggle to tamp down the disease that has already devastated poultry flocks worldwide.
The agriculture ministry said on Monday that 9.98 million birds have been culled this season, surpassing a previous record in fiscal 2020. On Tuesday, it confirmed the disease at an egg farm in Miyazaki prefecture that housed about 100,000 hens.
The outbreak in Japan is adding to the unprecedented bird flu epidemic sweeping the world. Culls are curbing supplies of products from eggs to foie gras, exacerbating the food inflation that’s hit consumer budgets the past year."

The Alarming Increase in Non-Respiratory Deaths Since Covid Vaccination Began in 2021 – The Daily ScepticThe Alarming Increase in Non-Respiratory Deaths Since Covid Vaccination Began in 2021—-—
By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH
Loss of hearing in the elderly is common affecting both the patient and the people around them trying to communicate. I have noticed many of my vaccinated elderly patients developing progressive hearing loss. Nieminen et al have conducted an extensive hearing assessment of patients in Finland after COVID-19 vaccination and compared them to the unvaccinated. The data suggested each successive shot increased risk for hearing loss. However, the most important results are in the supplemental tables which demonstrate the elderly and those with risk factors for hearing loss are pushed over the edge by COVID-19 vaccination.

Their risk for sudden and substantial loss of hearing is more than double those who wisely deferred on the vaccines. The Spike protein produced by the vaccines is a neurotoxin damaging nerves throughout the body and likely having more of an impact in nervous tissue which is already degenerated such as the auditory nerve. It is also possible the Spike protein incites inflammation leading to fibrosis in the tissue holding the stapes or stirrup which is a bone bone in the middle ear, the annular ligament, or the oval window all involved in the conduction of sound vibrations to the inner ear. If you have an elderly person in your circle who has been vaccinated, check on their hearing and do not fall behind on progressive hearing loss which if unchecked, can lead to social withdrawal and insidious depression.If you find “Courageous Discourse” enjoyable and useful to your endeavors, please subscribe as a paying or founder member to support our efforts in helping you engage in these discussions with family, friends, and your extended circles.
Dr. Peter McCullough Interview - The COVID Vaccine Narrative Has Collapsed Yet The Push Continueshttps://odysee.com/@TLAVagabond:5/Dr-Peter-McCullough-Interview-12-19-22:d
Some countries, for example Denmark, have even banned the Covid vaccines for children under 18.Today I saw a new poll from the US on attitudes towards vaccination and how worried people are about Covid-19. According to the poll an astounding 22% of parents are very worried their child will become seriously ill with Covid-19, and another 25% are somewhat worried, 47% in all. 42% of parents of 12-17 year old children either have or plan to inject them with the so-called “bivalent booster” (yes, the one tested on eight mice).In other words, more than a fifth of American adults believe a disease with an infection fatality rate that is probably around one in half a million for children and a truly minuscule hospitalisation rate, is very likely to severly harm their child.-
But as long as the soil is fertile; as long as we do not question, do not doubt, but blindly believe and obey, the sword of mass panic and all the damage done by it, still hangs over our heads.
THORSTEINN SIGLAUGSSONDEC 20 SAVE It should be evident to all now that Covid vaccines do not reduce transmission, that children have a truly minuscule risk from the disease and that their risk from serious adverse effects from vaccination is far to high to justify the inoculations.Some countries, for example Denmark, have even banned the Covid vaccines for children under 18.Today I saw a new poll from the US on attitudes towards vaccination and how worried people are about Covid-19. According to the poll an astounding 22% of parents are very worried their child will become seriously ill with Covid-19, and another 25% are somewhat worried, 47% in all. 42% of parents of 12-17 year old children either have or plan to inject them with the so-called “bivalent booster” (yes, the one tested on eight mice).In other words, more than a fifth of American adults believe a disease with an infection fatality rate that is probably around one in half a million for children and a truly minuscule hospitalisation rate, is very likely to severly harm their child.In a radio interview recently I was asked why I thought the reaction to the coronavirus had been so extreme. I said my best guess was mass panic as per Mattias Desmet’s hypothesis. Understandably, the reporter then asked how likely it really was that more or less the whole world would succumb to such extreme mass-formation; to her it didn’t sound credible. And it isn’t. I must admit this is a question I keep asking myself also, again and again. SubscribeHowever, in the end my conclusion is always the same: I still don’t have a better explanation, and a poll result such as the one I’m quoting here supports it; there is something seriously wrong when a fifth of the American population believes something as outrageously erroneous as this. As as strange as this may seem, what else could explain such utter disconnect from reality?But mass panic doesn’t happen by itself. What triggers it is the massive amount of propaganda, of fearmongering, of misinformation pumped out by governments, by the media, by the tech giants over the past three years. The propaganda works, there is no doubt about that. Let alone when dissenting voices are silenced also and the official narrative is all people have access to through the mainstream sources.What grows from propaganda and censorship are wrong beliefs, even mass panic as we have clearly seen from countless examples. Propaganda and censorship are the seeds. But we must not overlook another crucial component. This is the soil itself. And the soil that allows mass-formation to grow from propaganda and censorship is of our own making; it is our own lack of critical thinking. We do not doubt. We do not question. We do not employ and trust our own judgment. We do not make the effort to verify what we’re told, to seek out information by ourselves, for the information is there if we really look for it. This is the reason we have ended up where we are.We may eventually get out of the Covid panic. But as long as the soil is fertile; as long as we do not question, do not doubt, but blindly believe and obey, the sword of mass panic, and all the damage done by it, still hangs over our heads. We have to rid ourselves of this threat. What is at stake is freedom and democracy.The road to recovery will be long, and it will be strewn with difficulties. But we have no choice but to start the journey, and our guiding lights must be courage and integrity, and doubt; always doubt. We owe it to ourselves and we owe it to our children.Thanks for reading From Symptoms to Causes! Subscribe for free to receive new posts and support my work.
In light of the startling increase in reports of reproductive issues following vaccination, ICAN’s attorneys recently wrote a letter to our federal health agencies demanding to know why Americans were not given the same strict instructions regarding COVID-19 vaccines and reproduction that Pfizer gave its clinical trial participants.
A recent episode of The HighWire focused on reproductive harms seemingly resulting from COVID-19 vaccines, including the alarming rise in miscarriage and stillbirth rates. ICAN’s legal team had already sent a letter to the FDA and CDC asking for a formal response to the questions raised by The HighWire. In the letter, ICAN’s attorneys point out that Pfizer elected to implement very strict protocols around reproduction in its COVID-19 clinical trial, including:
requiring males to abstain from donating sperm and from heterosexual sex with women of childbearing potential unless they agreed to use a condom and a “highly effective method of contraception” for “at least 28 days” after their last shot;
banning women of childbearing potential entirely unless they were “using an acceptable contraceptive method” for at least 28 days after their last shot; and
banning pregnant or breastfeeding women.
This was likely for good reason since Pfizer had virtually no data on its vaccine’s effects on reproduction or on breastfeeding babies except for one study conducted prior to the clinical trial which showed lipids and mRNA concentrated in the testes for up to 48 hours post-vaccination. Unfortunately, as the letter points out, post-marketing studies now show pregnancy and menstrual abnormalities, impairment of semen concentration and mobility and, worst of all, an increased incidence of spontaneous abortion associated with COVID-19 vaccination. In light of this, ICAN’s letter asked three pointed questions, including a request for an explanation as to why federal health agencies, instead of giving the same strict study protocol instructions to the American public, went the opposite direction and strongly promoted thateveryone 6 months and older receive a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as eligible – including pregnant and breastfeeding women. ICAN additionally demanded to know what evidence or safety data the FDA and CDC had in making this recommendation and what studies, if any, are being conducted on the issue that have not been made public. ICAN will keep you posted on any response we receive on this alarming issue but, in the interim, you can read the full letter here.

As part of ICAN’s ongoing campaign to expose the truth regarding the Hepatitis B vaccine, which the CDC recommends all newborns receive on day one of life, ICAN’s attorneys submitted a legal requestto the FDA for all of its communications with Merck from 2016 to 2018 regarding Merck’s Hepatitis B vaccine (Recombivax HB).In response, the FDA recently produced a 95-page “Establishment Investigation Report” which detailed a 2017 inspection at Merck’s West Point, Pennsylvania facility which manufactures Merck’s Hepatitis B vaccine (Recombivax HB) as well as Merck’s Pneumococcal, HPV, and MMR vaccines.The inspection uncovered a number of highly disturbing findings, including unsanitary practices, mislabeled vaccine products, unqualified workers, mold contamination, bacteria contamination, and failure to report or investigate production issues. Among the more shocking findings from the inspection were the following:“There have been [redacted] particulates and foreign matters non-conformances, i.e., in filled vaccine product tubes, syringes, vials, stopper bowl, production tanks, manufacturing components and solutions.” (Page 88) “There have been [redacted] VARIVAX vaccine 0.2um filters integrity failures, including, sterilizing filters, primary and secondary filters.” (Page 89). “There have been [redacted] vaccine product related glycol leaks non-conformances, i.e., leaks from ceiling onto manufacturing areas, glycol leaks from equipment during manufacturing process.” (Page 89). “Although the recall of Recombivax HB Adult batch# 0672446 was in June 2013, not all corrective and preventive actions to prevent similar reoccurrences of the 2013 vials heel crack defects have been instituted.” (Page 90). “Observation #3 from the 20l5 Pre-approval Inspection (PAI) regarding labeling of containers that are not performed according to established procedures has not been adequately corrected. The current inspection revealed several instance [sic] of vaccine products labeling issues that could result in product mix-up, the use of the wrong products and equipment.” (Page 91). “Equipment and utensils are not maintained at appropriate intervals to prevent contamination that would alter the safety, identity, strength, quality or purity of the drug product.” (Page 95). Remarkably, despite having had, in some instances, four years to do so, the FDA noted that Merck failed to correct many of the issues uncovered. Nevertheless, Merck’s West Point facility still remains in operation today. Mind you, these grievous manufacturing issues were in a facility that manufactures vaccines intended to be injected into babies as young as one day old.Perhaps most concerning, however, is the fact that these manufacturing issues were occurring in vaccines where the manufacturer has had years to perfect its manufacturing process. It’s no surprise, then, that the “warp speed” manufacturing of COVID-19 vaccines has also led to serious manufacturing issues, including when FDA inspectors found the protocols at a facility manufacturing Moderna’s vaccines were not adequate to prevent contamination.ICAN will never rest until the complete truth regarding childhood and adult vaccines is brought into full daylight. In the meantime, you can read the full report about Merck’s facility here.And here is a list of some of ICAN’s prior work related to the Hepatitis B vaccine:ICAN FILES FORMAL PETITION DEMANDING THAT THE FDA WITHDRAW ITS LICENSURE OF HEPATITIS B VACCINES HEPATITIS B VACCINE SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN LICENSED CDC CONCEDES IT LACKS ANY PROOF OF HEPATITIS B BEING TRANSMITTED IN A SCHOOL SETTING CDC CANNOT SUPPORT THAT “VACCINES DO NOT CAUSE AUTISM” WITH REGARD TO BABIES ———
"Vaccines do not cause autism." We've all heard that a million times. It's the official position of the CDC. The mainstream media dutifully repeat the official position. Doctors repeat what they hear from the CDC and the media. But to state that vaccines do not cause autism is to make the positive claim that studies have tested and falsified the hypothesis that vaccinating according to the CDC's schedule can contribute to the development of autism in children with a genetic or environmentally caused susceptibility. And the truth is that no study has ever been done that was actually designed to test that hypothesis. Consequently, it logically cannot have been falsified. I explain how the myth that science has falsified this hypothesis is deceitfully propagated in my latest article:

V-SAFE PART 2: EVIDENCE THE CDC PURPOSELY DID NOT INCLUDE CHECK-THE-BOX SELECTIONS FOR MYOCARDITIS, PERICARDITIS, SEIZURES, STROKE, AND OTHER KNOWN POTENTIAL SERIOUS HARMS IN V-SAFE
V-SAFE PART 1: AFTER 464 DAYS, CDC FINALLY COUGHED UP COVID-19 VACCINE SAFETY DATA SHOWING 7.7% OF PEOPLE REPORTED NEEDING MEDICAL CARE (SUBSTACK.COM)
Basically, if we were not living in a wholly captured and penetrated system it would have been game over for the CDC, BigPharma, WHO, UN, Gates, the illegitimate Federal government and its criminal agencies, and all of the other PSYOP-19 players many times over given this V-Safe release.
V-Safe makes the terrifying VAERS look like a picnic, and the former is in theory a far more accurate representation of the VAIDS disaster we are now experiencing.
Do NOT comply.
SAVEV-Safe Part 1: After 464 Days, CDC Finally Coughed up Covid-19 Vaccine Safety Data Showing 7.7% of People Reported Needing Medical Care
Last year, I wrote to let you know that the CDC was refusing to release its post-marketing safety data for Covid-19 vaccines from its v-safe system to the public, despise our legal demands for this data on behalf of the Informed Consent Action Network(ICAN).
The CDC refused to release this data even though it had documented the data was in a form that could already be released to the public (meaning, it was “deidentified” or clear of any personally identifying information) because Oracle, a private company, already had access to this deidentified data.
Well, after multiple legal demands, appeals, and two federal lawsuits, the CDC finally capitulated and agreed to a court ordered schedule compelling it to produce the data. Now that ICAN, and therefore the public, have received the check-the-box portions (as opposed to the free-text field portions) of this data, the dataitself may explain why the CDC refused to release it without a fight.
V-safe’s data shows that 7.7% of its approximate 10 million users reported having to receive medical care after receipt of a Covid-19 vaccine, and over 70% of those users sought outpatient/urgent clinical care, emergency room care, and/or were hospitalized.
I can already hear the retort: surely these were anti-vaxxers reporting the need for medical care! Far from. All v-safe users received the Covid-19 vaccine. Anti-vaxxers don’t get the shot. Not only were these folks not against the shot – again, because every one of them got the shot – they are likely mostly vaccine enthusiasts. This is evidenced by the fact that most of the individuals who registered for v-safe did so between December 2020 and April 2021; in fact, around 9 million of the approximate 10 million users registered during this period. This was the time, you may recall, when many people were clamoring over each other to get the shot. When they were spending hours online searching for vaccine availability and making appointments. When love songs were literally being sung about the vaccine.
This was also early in the rollout when CDC recommended, and many states followed, a phased rollout, offering the first vaccines to healthcare workers and to long-term care facility residents. It was during this period that people signed up for v-safe to participate in its rollout, excited to be part of the vaccine program. (One can assume that more healthcare workers than elderly long-term care residents signed up for a smartphone-based program). This also pre-dates most vaccine mandates in the country.
The data submitted by the 10 million v-safe users therefore may be a good reflection of the experience of the larger population of 265 million Americans who received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. To the extent it is not, if anything, these people (as enthusiasts and/or healthcare workers) were arguably more prone to underreport symptoms than to overreport.
The data itself is disconcerting but even more incredible is the CDC’s stonewalling the release of the data, the process needed to obtain the data, and how the CDC used, or dare I say misused, the data over the last year and a half. This story, in many ways, reflects all that is wrong with so-called public “health” authorities. It shows the serious danger resulting when the CDC’s policies, public claims, and reputation become indistinguishable from its need to defend a product at almost all costs.
To make it manageable to tell and digestible to folks with busy schedules, I will tell the story in several parts released over the coming days and weeks.
The v-safe story continues in Part 2, to be released tomorrow, which will explain what is in v-safe and why you should care. And trust me, you should care, as v-safe is likely the best evidence that exists regarding the safety profile of this product. As I tell the story, I will endeavor through these posts to respond to the torrent of inquiries regarding v-safe, the fight to get the data, and the data itself, which I have already received.
I will leave you with a short appearance I had on Fox News discussing the v-safe data:
I am a proud member of the Canadian COVID Care Alliance (CCCA), which is a group of hundreds of scientists, physicians, and other health care professionals from across Canada, with even more members of the public. It is a safe place where the science and politics underpinning COVID-19 can be discussed, questioned and debated in a respectful, well-organized fashion, and in the absence of judgement, accusations and censorship. I serve on their Scientific and Medical Advisory Committee, which makes sure that content from the CCCA meets very rigorous scientific standards.
One of my colleagues at the CCCA, Deanna, recently gave a brilliant presentation that addressed the question of whether acquisition of COVID-19 or receipt of a COVID-19 jab presents a greater risk of causing heart complications.
COVID Chronicles is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
I have seen some of my academic colleagues go so far as to publicly state that COVID-19 represents a greater risk than the inoculations based on the assumption that reports in the Canadian Adverse Events Following Immunization Surveillance System (CAEFISS) accurately capture the full spectrum of the problem! This is utterly ridiculous. They don’t seem to understand that a critical weakness of systems that rely on passive safety monitoring is that they underestimate adverse events to a substantial but difficult-to-define degree. This may be exaggerated in the context of COVID-19, where anything that goes against the prevailing ‘narrative’ is deemed circumspect and individuals reporting such things risk being publicly vilified. In stark contrast, public health officials have generally been diligent and have invested vast resources into accurately tracking ‘cases’ of COVID-19. Further, there has been little done to disentangle the cause of heart problems in people that have had both COVID-19 and COVID-19 inoculations, with much of the blame automatically being placed on the former.
There are many other flaws in the science being used to promote the misinformed public conclusion that ‘COVID-19 causes more heart complications than the inoculations, so load up on the latter to avoid the former’. But I will stop here and simply refer you to a video presentation from Deanna, whose expertise and scientific integrity I can vouch for. The content was vetted by the Scientific and Medical Advisory Committee of the CCCA. It is a fabulous presentation of the real science. It pulls together a lot of data that have been ‘hidden in plain sight’ and highlights multiple fatal flaws in the ‘science’ being pushed by the misinformed ‘narrative’.
So, if you can carve out an hour of your time, sit back and see how experts of integrity follow the science…
RISK OF HEART COMPLICATIONS IS HIGHER AFTER COVID-19 INJECTIONS
I really wish that my colleagues following, supporting, and contributing to narrative-buoying misinformation would take the time to watch this from an objective point of view. After all, I review their disseminated information to try to understand their point of view. (I know, this is like Roger Whittaker’s song, “I dream… I but dream.”)

Plausibility But Not Science Has Dominated Public Discussions of the Covid Pandemic ⋆ Brownstone Institute
“Attacks on me, quite frankly, are attacks on science.” ~ Anthony Fauci, June 9, 2021 (MSNBC).
For one thing, Dr. Fauci has not reported accurately on scientific questions throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. For another, the essential dialectic of science is arguing, questioning, debating. Without debate, science is nothing more than propaganda.
The MSM is abysmal in this country. A couple of problems right off the bat with this article. Abandoning zero COVID does not mean the only choice are between zero COVID and nothing. You can do intermediate measures. Also, whatever measures China implements, will fail miserably. The current strains of COVID cannot be stopped or restrained by human intervention. The only choice is to suck it up and do the best you can at treating people. Fortunately, even for COVID naive people, most will get through COVID without serious illness or even need medical care.
Fertility declines near the end of the COVID-19 pandemic: Evidence of the 2022 birth declines in Germany and Sweden (figshare.com)
Following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, several countries faced short-term fertility declines in 2020 and 2021, a development which did not materialize in Scandinavian and German-speaking countries. However, more recent birth statistics show a steep fertility decline in the aftermath of the pandemic in 2022. In this study, we aim to provide data on the unexpected birth decline in 2022 in Germany and Sweden and relate these data to pandemic-related contextual developments which could have influenced the post-pandemic fertility development. We rely on monthly birth statistics and present seasonally adjusted monthly Total Fertility Rates (TFR) for Germany and Sweden. We relate the nine-months lagged fertility rates to contextual developments regarding COVID-19 mortality and morbidity, unemployment rates, and COVID-19 vaccinations. We show that the seasonally adjusted monthly TFR of Germany dropped from 1.5-1.6 in 2021 to 1.3-1.4 in early 2022, a decline of about 14 %. In Sweden, the corresponding TFR dropped from about 1.7 in 2021 to 1.5-1.6 in early 2022, a decline of almost 10 %. There is no association of the fertility trends with changes in unemployment, infection rates, or COVID-19 deaths. However, there is a strong association between the onset of vaccination programmes and the fertility decline nine months after of this onset. The fertility decline in the first months of 2022 in Germany and Sweden is remarkable. Common explanations of fertility change during the pandemic do not apply in its aftermath. The association between the onset of mass vaccinations and subsequent fertility decline indicates that people adjusted their behaviour to get vaccinated before becoming pregnant, as societies were opening up with post-pandemic life conditions. Our study provides novel information on fertility declines in countries previously not affected by any COVID-19 baby bust. We provide a first appraisal of the COVID-19-fertility nexus in the immediate aftermath of the pandemic.
Remember the scandal with Western University in Ontario, Canada, that was requiring boosters from its students?
That’s the college that required bivalent boosters for fall classes.
The uproar was momentous. How can a college require completely unproven “boosters” to be taken by young, healthy students who had one or more Covids anyway?
The college finally relented and fully discontinued Covid vaccination requirements:
Note the BLUE highlighting of “medical experts” in both above images. In three months, the brilliant “medical experts” have completed a 180-degree turnaround in their deep evidence-based scientific thinking and no longer demand the boosters.
What made them change their minds?
I am sure it is you, the protesters, the public, substack authors, etc.
The experts are possibly starting to worry that their role in the “pandemic” will soon be subject to pointed questions from the disappointed public worried about health and fertility.
Personally, I will do my best to continue exposing Covid criminals so that they are not let off the hook and their crimes are not forgotten.
Twitter Drops “Covid Misinformation Policy”
Life is getting better every day!
Will the Covid criminals ever be brought to face responsibility? What do you think?
It was not long ago that we were told to take booster after booster, seemingly into infinity. Boost up your immune system they said.
In my last Substack article I wrote about how leading Norwegian doctors have said that they will not be taking the boosters, because they say that for young people the side effects could outwheigh the benefits.
Upgrade to paid
Now a professor and vaccine researcher at the University of Oslo has come out with a warning against taking the boosters, saying that people under 65 who do not belong to a risk group do not need to take a fourth booster.
”As long as you are not over 65 years or belong to a risk group, there is no need for a fourth dose. All data we have point clearly in one direction: If you do not have an underlying illness, then you have no benefit of taking the fourth dose...It should also be said that the younger population, who have a low risk for serious covid disease, should have a high threshold for recommending more doses” says Gunnveig Grødeland
Even the department director at the Norwegian Institute for Public Health (NIPH) is warning about young people taking the vaccine.
”For the youngest in the age group 18 to 64, the benefits of a new dose is the lowest, and therefore negative effects like menstrual disorders can mean the disadvantage is greater than the benefit” says Are Stuwitz Berg at NIPH.
Do you remember last year?
Women started complaining about getting menstrual bleeding after taking the vaccine? Do you remember how they were called conspiracy theorists by the media?
Well it turns out that Norway has had a shocking 15 000 reports of women with menstrual disorders after taking the vaccine, and Norway has officially listedmenstrual bleeding as a possible side effect of the vaccine.
Now consider that Norway is a small country with only 5.4 million people, the total number of women of menstrual age is not very high. So 15 000 is a lot for such a small country.
Now I found something very worrying indeed. In the VAERS database from the U.S, there has been an astronomical 31 020% increase in report of menstrual disorders in 2021 after the mRNA vaccines came out. Clearly something is wrong here.

Today…because of the information on the Alberta COVID Dashboard that was updated, I’d sent an email to a few MPs and included Premier of Alberta - Danielle Smith - shared the letter so that the rest of my fellow Albertans could do the same…
Problem with this is…my readership extends past the provincial borders and wouldn’t be that useful shared in others…so, I figured out a way to see if I could drill this out so that you’d all have a seasonal - end the COVID Vaccines NOW - message to share with your MPs and MLAs, across Canada…and what I found was incredibly troubling and can only be described as this last 2 years being little more than Straight up Genocide.
The complicity of ALL Provincial Health Care providers and Health Canada need to be brought to task…and I mean, IMMEDIATELY!
Any Member of Parliament, Member of Legislative Assembly and Elected City Official who lets this go on without addressing it, is also complicit in Homicide…make no mistake - if they remain silent here, they are the Enemy and need be treated as thus!
For 2 years, we’ve been lied to.
Lie: Take the first Vaccine that’s available - they’re all “Safe and Effective”…
Until J&J and AstraZenneca were pulled out of Canada because they were harming people.
Lie: Myocarditis and Pericarditis are ‘Rare’…
Until over 80 doctors, numerous pilots, multiples of people started dying from “Unknown”…and the rates of myocarditis in all ages are higher than ever historically recorded…
Lie: The Vaccines will Stop Transmission of COVID.
Except they didn’t do this by way of any realistic measure.
Lie: Tens of Thousands of Lives were Saved.
I’ll be getting to this.
They seized bank accounts, arrested Canadians and allowed them to be doxxed by Taxpayer Funded Media against those who were against a passport system that was employed to “keep people safe from COVID”, based on a vaccine that Never Stopped Transmission.
They’ve ruined lives. Had people Fired. Ostracized from their Communities and have divided Canadians based on these vaccines….because if they can only save one life, right?
Health Canada Stopped reporting and updating the Hospitalizations and Deaths from COVID by way of Vaccination Status, because the information stopped supporting their narrative of “Safe and Effective”.
Let’s dive into that.
Up to November 11, 2022 over 52,000 Canadians have been injured by these vaccines:
Over 10,000 of them “Serious”.
And since December 14th, 2020 - the majority of Hospitalizations and Body Bags have been filled by those who have taken 2, 3, 4 and some up to 5 of the COVID mRNA vaccinations - and this is when they stopped talking about it, over 2 months ago.
And if that weren’t bad enough, the information that has been provided by all of the high population provinces throughout the country indicates that the vaccines have not only ‘Not Been Effective’, they’ve made the situation worse.
We’ve been lead to believe…
That as more vaccines would be introduced, less people would be dying from COVID.
What we are actually seeing, through data provided to Health Canada is…
That as more vaccines have been introduced, the rate of death has not only not gone down…it’s been increasing.
More Vaccines = More Deaths.
There is no confusion about what we had been told about the variants of COVID. We were told that Alpha was the most virulent, Delta next and Omicron with sub-strains were the most transmissible but least lethal. This in itself should have shown a dramatic effect on the amount of deaths associated to COVID over the last 3 years with a decline…but this too is not visible in the data.
I’ve broken down the Health Canada Statistics - reported by each province to Health Canada - and this is the information they’ve been using to continue to Push the Vaccines because they are “Safe and Effective”…and it looks terrible.
Emani et al.: "Increasing SARS-CoV2 cases, hospitalizations and deaths among the vaccinated elderly populations during the Omicron (B.1.1.529) variant surge in UK."; vaccine effectiveness (VE) for 3rd

Of the total cases (n= 22,072,550), hospitalizations (n=848,911) and deaths (n=175,070) due to COVID-19 in UK; 51.3% of cases (n=11,315,793), 28.8% of hospitalizations (n=244,708) and 16.4% of deaths (n=28,659) occurred during Omicron variant surge. When comparing the period of February 28-May 1, 2022 with the prior 12-weeks, we observed a significant increase in the case fatality rate (0.19% vs 0.41%; RR 2.11[ 2.06-2.16], p<0.001) and odds of hospitalization (1.58% vs 3.72%; RR 2.36[2.34-2.38]; p<0.001). During the same period a significant increase in cases (23.7% vs 40.3%; RR1.70 [1.70-1.71]; p<0.001) among ≥50 years of age and hospitalizations (39.3% vs 50.3%;RR1.28 [1.27-1.30]; p<0.001) and deaths (67.89% vs 80.07%;RR1.18 [1.16-1.20]; p<0.001) among ≥75 years of age was observed.
The vaccine effectiveness (VE) for the third dose was in negative since December 20, 2021, with a significantly increased proportion of SARS-CoV2 cases hospitalizations and deaths among the vaccinated; and a decreased proportion of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths among the unvaccinated.’

Table shows that the vaccinated population (including two doses) have a significantly higher proportion of cases than the unvaccinated during the latter part of the Delta variant and initial part of Omicron variant surges. During the latter part of the Omicron variant surge, the vaccinated with the third dose have the highest proportion of infection than those vaccinated with two doses and unvaccinated.

I also embed this short piece on The Wellness Company and The UNITY Project.
First, The Wellness Company.
I am proud to announce a unique partnership with The Wellness Company and everyone who believes in medical freedom. My dear and esteemed colleagues Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Harvey Risch are also in partnership with The Wellness Company which provides telemedicine services for long-haul COVID, vaccine injury, and medical exemptions along with supplements and products that are fully aligned with our values. This support for The Wellness Company stems from the sub-optimal medical care and response that we experienced throughout the pandemic. It became apparent that there are many glaring gaps in our healthcare system and people were not properly treated. Thus, the pivot by us to support The Wellness Company. Take a stand against a broken healthcare delivery system with a membership in The Wellness Company, which directly funds our fight against medical tyranny. Click here The Wellness Company for more information.
I also provide scientific support to The UNITY Project out of California. I support this tremendous initiative with some fine colleagues who have been warriors in the fight against all the wrongs in COVID. The UNITYProject aligns with my core values for it is very fierce in its fight to protect children from the danger of the largely safety untested COVID gene injection (The Unity Project Formed by Concerned Parents to Coordinate Opposition to California's K-12 COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate).

How Vaccines Drive Covid Variants – The Daily Sceptic
Variants have been one of the hallmarks of this pandemic, with ever more infectious forms of the virus apparently mutating themselves into existence at regular intervals. However. it is easy to forget that prior to 2021 variants were a rarity and the only sign of our variant ridden future was the emergence of the scarily named Kent variant (later renamed Alpha) late in 2020. The UKHSA Vaccine Surveillance Report started mentioning variants in May of 2021, but only in passing. However, as 2021 wore on new variants started appearing more frequently, and in recent reports there are 10 times more references to ‘variants’ compared to their debut. (To be fair, there used to be an entirely different vaccine report devoted to ‘variants of concern’, the Technical Briefings.)
Investigation of SARS-CoV-2 variants: technical briefings
Technical briefing documents on novel SARS-CoV-2 variants.
But ‘variants’ weren’t simply a natural process of viral evolution – not when there were people to blame. By summer 2022 there had been multiple articles published explaining that it was the unvaccinated that created these variants, adding to the cries for (mandated) universal vaccination. I believe that the idea that it was the unvaccinated that were causing the problem arose due to a misunderstanding of the role of the mechanisms that drive viral evolution. While it is true that for many vaccines the main source of vaccine escape variants is the unvaccinated, this is only true for sterilising vaccines (which stop any viral load on infection), and isn’t the case for non-sterilising vaccines such as the COVID-19 ones. To explain this effect further we need to delve into the evolutionary process.
New Twitter owner Elon Musk announced a general amnesty starting next week, under which all suspended accounts will have their suspensions lifted.
This means dozens of big names like Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, who had their accounts suspended for sharing what Twitter moderators thought was “misinformation” about Covid-19, will once again be able to use Twitter to communicate with their thousands of followers.
But it turns out it’s more than just a handful of people who were banned.
A report from late July shows that Twitter moderators working under the former management suspended 11,230 people for sharing “potentially harmful” or “misleading information” related to Covid-19.
The people silenced included doctors, researchers and others who shared information that may have appeared critical of the government’s “safe and effective” narrative, even if if the information that was being shared was government data, and even if it was a doctor’s professional opinion about what actions they thought public health officials should take.
That China’s Zero COVID has been an abysmal failure at containing even modest outbreaks of SARS-CoV-2 infections has been proven time and again.
Beijing Is Having Zero Success With Zero COVID, People Are Having Zero Patience
The Price Of Zero COVID: China's Future
Zero COVID Means Lockdown Forever
"Dynamic" Zero COVID: Zero Logic, Total Chaos
Now, with yet another wave of COVID cases spreading across the country, Zero COVID is encountering an increasing amount of pushback from an increasingly restive population.
Rare protests broke out in China’s far western Xinjiang region, with crowds shouting at hazmat-suited guards after a deadly fire triggered anger over their prolonged COVID-19 lockdown as nationwide infections set another record.Crowds chanted “End the lockdown!”, pumping their fists in the air as they walked down a street, according to videos circulated on Chinese social media on Friday night. Reuters verified the footage was published from the Xinjiang capital Urumqi.
What is most worrisome for Beijing and the CCP, however, is that the Urumqi protests are hardly an isolated instance of public discontent.
PSA: I am writing a follow up article to go through the ‘accident’ deaths that I made a mistake on in my previous post on the VT death certificates (DC’s). Suffice it to say, despite my blunder, the signal is there, but it’s a bit more more nuanced.
How many women were legitimately killed by covid in Vermont?
This is a worthwhile nugget to explore. One of the more incessant propaganda blitzkriegs deployed by the Govt/Big Med complex to scare people about covid was “pregnancy is a [profound] comorbidity”.
To be clear, this was anyhow absurd simply because young healthy women - in other words, women who get pregnant - were statistically the safest cohort outside of kids.
However, this and similar arguments leave a little wiggle room for women with genuine comorbidities - perhaps there is an actual risk to them at least from covid, however otiosely slight.
But what if women simply were by and large never dying from covid in the first place?
I had always assumed that there were probably a small number of women who genuinely died because of covid, simply because between the 1-2 million (rough guesstimate) legitimate covid deaths (who mostly could’ve been saved with treatment), and the clinical experience of tens if not hundreds of thousands of doctors, surely there were some women who were covid disease casualties.
Which is why I was surprised to observe the following trends in the Vermont DC data for 2020 that suggest the possibility of negligible covid deaths among women.
To be clear, I am not claiming anything definitively, rather I am simply suggesting that the following observations suggest a realistic possibility that covid may not have killed any women in Vermont until the last week or two of December.
As Ms. Frizzle would say, “Buckle up everyone, we’re going on a field trip!”
Exhibit A: Excess Death from ALL Causes in 2020
Note: Make sure to read *all* the labels & axes on the charts, they are not always the same.
The following charts are the trendlines for excess deaths broken down by gender:
With Tom Brady as his quarterback, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians won Super Bowl LV against the Kansas City Chiefs on February 7, 2021. Here he holds the Lombardi Trophy in Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. In early November, he was rushed to Tampa General Hospital with chest pains and diagnosed with myocarditis, with overwhelming odds it was vaccine-induced.
It is ironic that some of the most vigorous promoters and strongest voices for covid-19 vaccination in public view have also felt the bite of vicious side effects such as heart inflammation. Former NFL coach Bruce Arians has been known for his slogan “No risk-it, no biscuit,” which encourages aggressive play calling. When he was asserting in the press that all of the Tampa Bay Bucs and staff were fully vaccinated in 2021, little did he know he was going to risk his cardiac biscuit with probable covid-19 vaccine-induced myocarditis a year later.
Arians, age 70, is a prostate cancer survivor and was hospitalized twice for chest pain in 2017 while coaching the Arizona Cardinals. So he knew he was taking risks with a covid-19 vaccination tagged with FDA warnings for heart damage that can lead to heart failure and sudden death. What he may not have known is that myocarditis can strike in his age group, as shown by Rose and McCullough, and when it occurs in his age group it may compound a common problem of atherosclerotic coronary heart disease.
China's Zero COVID philosophy Sparks Protestors | American Experts Deny They Wanted the Same - YouTube
As anyone reading this is doubtless aware, the FDA initially denied the link between myocarditis and the covid vaccines; in this case, ‘initially’ means to say for the better part of 2021. Even now, they are continuing to double down on false and frivolous assertions about vaccine-associated myocarditis, such as that it’s less frequent and less severe than myocarditis caused by covid infection.
Some apologists are now trying to rewrite the history of the medical community’s stance on this issue, claiming that health officials acknowledged that the covid vaccines were causing myocarditis (however rare and mild) immediately following the emergence of indications of a potential association between the covid vaccines and increased incidence of myocarditis.
When did they first acknowledge the *possibility* that the vaccines *might* be causing myocarditis?
As far as I’m aware, the first official acknowledgement of the possibility of vaccine-associated myocarditis came at the end of May:
As most of you know, me and a bunch of other people are monitoring VAERS data very closely week-by-week. This week (11.18.22), the first thing I noticed was that the Foreign data set was less than a fraction of the size it was last week (11.11.22): down from 283.51 MB to 96.81 MB. There is a disclaimer under the VAERS data that states the following, so this is not mistake.
Figure 1: https://vaers.hhs.gov/data/datasets.html.
I decided to process the data as I always do on Fridays.
The first thing I do when I analyze the VAERS data (after downloading) is compile the Domestic data set. Then I compile the Foreign data set. The I merge them along with the 2021 COVID-19 data. Then I count the numbers of VAERS IDs in both and do some basic descriptive statistics - like how many males versus females, age demographics, dose data and more. Then I start my grouped queries like death counts and severe adverse event counts, etc..
In the case of myocarditis, I always run the code over the Domestic, the Foreign and the combined data sets independently.
The first thing I noticed is that the myocarditis dose 3 response signal is gone. There is a 49% decrease in the number of myocarditis reports.
Figure 3: Myocarditis reports in VAERS Foreign data as of 10.14..22 (right) and as of 11.18.22.
The second thing I noticed was that 944 spontaneous abortions are missing.
Figure 2: Spontaneous abortion, miscarriage, still birth and vaginal hemorrhages reports in VAERS as of 11.11.22 (left) and as of 11.18.22 (right).
The third thing I noticed was that the cancer reports, although they maintain a similar age distribution as the previous weeks, as shown in Figure 4, there is a 46% decrease in reports.
Figure 4: Cancer reports in VAERS as of 11.11.22 (left) and as of 11.18.22 (right).

Myocarditis Misinformation From “Trusted Sources” ⋆ Brownstone Institute
Imagine you are a parent of a child in the age range 12–15 years trying to decide if the benefits of COVID-19 vaccination outweigh the risks. You’ve heard about the link between COVID-19 infection and myocarditis as well as the link between COVID-19 vaccination and myocarditis. You google “myocarditis and COVID-19 infection”. Your search returns the following featured snippet:
You might conclude that the “best science” suggests your child is at greater risk of developing myocarditis after a COVID-19 infection than after a COVID-19 vaccination. Such a conclusion would be incorrect—two large studies whose findings have been published in prestigious medical journals offer compelling evidence that your child is at a higher risk of myocarditis after COVID-19 vaccination than after a COVID-19 infection; moreover, the “new study in England” providing the information Google has highlighted has serious scientific shortcomings.
The American Medical Association journal Cardiology, 20 April 2022, published a research paper by Karlstad et al. titled “SARS-CoV-2 Vaccination and Myocarditis in a Nordic Cohort Study of 23 Million Residents.” In column 2 of eTable 7, we note that within Karlstad et al.’s study population there were 0 cases of myocarditis following SARS-CoV-2 infection for males and females in the age range 12–15. (The study population in the 12–15 age range was “at start of follow-up” 1,238,004, and at the end of the follow-up period 750,253 were unvaccinated.) Moreover, for boys 12–15, eTable 6 reports myocarditis and pericarditis events combined, with 5 events linked to dose 1 of an mRNA vaccine and 6 events, to dose 2.
We will later describe myocarditis data, for children in the age range 13–17, from another large study consistent with that of Karlstad et al.’s for children in age range 12–15. Thus, when a parent searches Google for “myocarditis and COVID-19 infection,” and reads in the top search result that the overall risk of myocarditis is “substantially higher immediately after being infected with COVID-19 than it is in the weeks following vaccination for the coronavirus,” the parent is being misinformed.
Moreover, everyone considering COVD-19 vaccination risks versus those related to infection should be aware that the contrast drawn in the Google-search snippet above between “immediately after being infected” and “in the weeks following vaccination” is extremely misleading. The “new study in England” doesn’t report on myocarditis developing “immediately after being infected”; rather, it reports on myocarditis developing 1–28 days after a positive COVID-19 test, just as it reports on myocarditis developing 1–28 days after a COVID-19 vaccination. In other words, for the study, there is no difference in the temporal association of myocarditis with infection vs. that with vaccination. Hence, the search return is spreading misinformation.
Even worse, the “new study in England” that Google highlights has serious shortcomings.

SAVEEvery Bit of Heart Muscle Matters
Pfizer and Moderna Start Cardiac Studies--Two Years Too Late
Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH
As a cardiologist, I can tell you the entire discipline of cardiovascular disease is oriented to preserving heart tissue. Heart muscle is largely terminally differentiated with low rates of turnover; hence, we cannot afford to lose any cardiomyocytes to damage caused by vaccines. Aldana-Bitar et al, described the excursion of cardiac troponin as about four days with COVID-19 vaccine induced myocarditis which is oddly about the same duration as an ischemic myocardial infarction due to blocked coronary arteries.[i]

Hence the confusion with the terms “myocarditis” “myopericarditis” and “heart attack” in the CDC VAERS system and the media. The first two prospective cohort studies, where blood cardiac troponin level was measured before and after receiving mRNA injections, both demonstrated unacceptably high rates of troponin elevations indicating predictable heart damage. Mansanguan et al found the rate of heart injury was 2.3% on the second injection of Pfizer in children 13-18 years old.[ii] Two children were hospitalized with myocarditis in this 301-person study. Le Pessec et al, in a presentation at the European Society of Cardiology, revealed 2.8% of healthcare workers (n=777) had elevated troponin by day 3 after the third mRNA injection.[iii]
NTD News with Dr. McCullough: 1 in 35 Experience Cardiac Injury After 3rd COVID Vaccine: Study, Nov 11, 2022
The overlord of science Anthony Fauci blamed President Trump Sunday for China’s continued obfuscation of the origins of COVID, claiming that it was Trump’s “anti-China approach” that encouraged the Communist state to be non-cooperative.
Now that he has retired, Anthony Fauci is devoting even more time to his favourite hobby, appearing on the news, shilling for China, and telling people to get booster shots.
In his latest appearance on CBS’ Face The Nation, Fauci declared “What happens is that if you look at the anti-China approach, that clearly the Trump administration had right from the very beginning, and the accusatory nature, the Chinese are going to flinch back and say, Oh, I’m sorry, we’re not going to talk to you about it, which is not correct. They should be.”
“I think that horse is out of the barn, and they’re very suspicious of anybody trying to accuse them,” Fauci continued, adding “We need to have an open dialogue with their scientists and our scientists, keep the politics out of it. And let the scientists- because these are scientists that we’ve known for decades, and we’ve collaborated with them.”
French researchers have reanimated over a dozen prehistoric viruses which have been trapped deep within the Siberian permafrost for nearly 50 million years, according to a pre-print study.
After obtaining seven ancient permafrost samples, scientists from the French National Centre for Scientific Research were able to document 13 never-before-seen viruses that had been lying dormant in the ice, Science Alert reports.
The same researchers found a 30,000-year-old virus in 2014 which was trapped in permafrost. Notably, it was still able to infect organisms. Now, they've beaten their own record with a find that's 48,500 years old, which they named Pandoravirus yedoma, according to Science Alert.
The scientists, who called these "zombie viruses" a public health threat, pointed to global warming as an ongoing risk that could result in the release of deadly pathogens from long ago.
"Due to climate warming, irreversibly thawing permafrost is releasing organic matter frozen for up to a million years, most of which decomposes into carbon dioxide and methane, further enhancing the greenhouse effect," the authors wrote. "Part of this organic matter also consists of revived cellular microbes (prokaryotes, unicellular eukaryotes) as well as viruses that remained dormant since prehistorical times."
As Global News notes,
Some of these “zombie viruses” could potentially be dangerous to humans, the authors warn. And, in fact, thawing permafrost has already claimed human lives.
In 2016, one child died and dozens of people were hospitalized after an anthrax outbreak in Siberia. Officials believe the outbreak started because a heat wave thawed the permafrost and unearthed a reindeer carcass infected with anthrax decades ago. About 2,300 reindeer died in the outbreak.
Another 1.8 million chickens were ordered to be culled in Nebraska after agriculture officials analyzed yet another bird flu outbreak on a farm.
The latest culling comes after 50 million birds have been slaughtered nationwide to try and contain the ongoing outbreak according to AP, so who knows if it's actually true.
Fortunately the Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) issued a report, which adds that this is the 13th farm in the state to suffer an outbreak this year. According to the report, 6.8 million birds have been killed in Nebraska - the second-most behind Iowa, which has killed 15.5 million.
After the affected flock is culled, the NDA will establish a 6.2-mile control zone around the affected premises.
Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) is a highly contagious virus which spreads easily among birds via nasal and eye secretions, along with manure, the NDA said in a statement. Symptoms include a lack of energy and appetite, decreased egg production or malformed eggs, and sudden death in birds even if they aren't showing symptoms.
The disease can survive 'for weeks' in contaminated environments.
According to Yahoo, Turkey and chicken farms aren't the only facilities affected by bird flu this year - as a petting zoo in Utah had an outbreak in recent days.
Speaking to The Times newspaper following a meeting in Oslo with Allied counterparts on-board the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier, the U.K. defense minister urged for the country’s defense to be properly funded amid concerns of future cutbacks of personnel.
“If we just want to stay at home and do a bit of tootling around, we’ve got an armed forces big enough,” Wallace told the newspaper, explaining that Britain’s “international alliance of 30 people,” otherwise known as NATO, continued to act as Britain’s military deterrent.
He added, however, that measuring the sufficiency of the British Army is dependent on what the new government’s foreign policy objectives look like.
“We get in trouble when governments promise things without backing them up – they want to be everywhere… but they don’t fund it,” he told the newspaper.
With Army numbers dwindling and expected to drop by around 10,000 troops after cost-cutting measures were approved by ministers last year, Wallace, who has served as Britain’s defense minister under three separate Conservative administrations since 2019, vowed to “design an armed forces to fit the threat and to fit the ambition of the prime minister.”
The once-feared British Army will soon consist of just 72,500 soldiers, a 200-year low dating back to the Napoleonic Wars.
A Cambridge University dean is claiming that Jesus could have been transgender based on an image found in a fourteenth century painting.
Via the Daily Mail:
Church worshippers cried ‘heresy’ at the Dean of Trinity College as they left a sermon claiming Jesus may have been transgender ‘in tears’.
But the view of a transgender Jesus is ‘legitimate’, according to Dr Michael Banner, the Dean who stepped in to defend the claim made at a Sermon last Sunday that Christ had a ‘trans body’.
Dr Michael Banner, the Dean of Trinity College, was backing up junior research fellow Joshua Heath, who displayed Renaissance and Medieval paintings of the crucifixion depicting a side wound that he likened to a vagina in front of the congregation.
The side wound ‘takes on a decidedly vaginal appearance’, said Heath, whose PhD was supervised by the former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.
The Dean of Trinity College, Dr Michael Banner, has stepped in to back up the view of a transgender Jesus after a junior research fellow claimed Christ had a ‘trans body’ last Sunday
The research fellow used the 1400th-century painting Pietà with the Holy Trinity by Jean Malouel to illustrate his point
‘In Christ’s simultaneously masculine and feminine body in these works, if the body of Christ as these works suggest the body of all bodies, then his body is also the trans body,’ claimed the researcher.
U.S. life insurers paid a record $100 billion in 2021 in death benefits, fueled by another year of Covid-19 deaths, an industry trade group said.
Payouts rose 11% in 2021 to $100.19 billion, most likely due to the pandemic, according to the American Council of Life Insurers. The increase was on the heels of a 15% year-over-year rise in 2020, when death-benefit payments totaled $90.43 billion.
The ACLI compiles data from annual filings by insurers to state insurance departments. Given limitations in the filings, the group can’t break down causes of death, but it is reasonable to attribute the bulk of the increases to the pandemic, said Andrew Melnyk, ACLI vice president of research and chief economist.
January 2021 averaged 4200 Rona deaths per worldometer. Now it’s about 400
Tiantian Kullander, the influential young founder of cryptocurrency company Amber Group, died suddenly in his sleep on Nov. 23, the company confirmed.
The group had just received a $3 billion valuation earlier this year, and was in the process of raising another $100 million—a meteoric success in which he played an integral role after launching Amber in 2017 with a group of finance insiders, including former Goldman Sachs Group Inc and Morgan Stanley workers.
Despite posting the lowest unemployment rate in at least 46 years, the state of California had more people on the federal food stamp program in 2022 than ever.
California's participation in the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program in 2022 peaked at 4.9 million people as of July and then dropped to 4.6 million in August, the most recent month data is available from the federal government.
By comparison, California's highest participation on SNAP in 2020 was 4.8 million people in June 2020. But California was under a shelter-in-place order from March through June 2020 and many businesses were ordered closed in 2020. The state's unemployment rate during the pandemic peaked at 16.1% as of May 2020.
California's unemployment rate was 3.8% as of September 2022, the lowest as far back as 1976, when online data is available.
California has approved funding in the 2022-23 budget to allow undocumented immigrants ages 55 and over to get food assistance under the state-funded California Food Assistance Program, which is separate from the federally-funded SNAP program.
California has given extra SNAP money to recipients due to COVID-19. Gov. Gavin Newsom announced in October that the COVID-19 state of emergency would end Feb. 28, 2023. The per-person cost of the SNAP program has increased from $123.22 per month in March 2020 before the state of emergency declaration to $277.12 as of August 2022.
The Irish government is now planning to criminalize hate speech and hate crimes, which is expected to become law before the end of the year.
So, who is going to make the decision on what ‘hate’ speech is?
Anything that the communist, socialist, or dictator regime views as offensive is considered hate speech. The definition of “hate speech” is an attempt to silence you.
“The new legislation will criminalize any intentional or reckless communication or behavior that is likely to incite violence or hatred against a person or persons because they are associated with a protected characteristic,” the government said.
If you are found guilty of this offense, you could face a sentence of five years in prison.
Russia's attacks on Ukrainian energy infrastructure amount to genocide, a top Ukrainian official says.
Strikes on key facilities targeted "the full Ukrainian nation" and were an effort to force Kyiv to surrender, the prosecutor-general told the BBC.
The term genocide refers to an effort to wipe out a group of people. Russia denies having any such aim.
Millions of people across Ukraine are facing power cuts in freezing weather, following sustained Russian attacks.
Efforts are ongoing to reconnect homes cut off from electricity. Officials say Kherson has now been fully resupplied, following the city's recapture by Ukrainian troops earlier this month.
The Washington Post on Sunday told Americans to eat “salted ants” and “ground crickets.”
“Consumers can already find foods like salted ants on Amazon and cricket powder protein bars in Swiss grocery stores,” WaPo said in its article titled, “Salted Ants. Ground Crickets. Why You Should Try Edible Insects.”

The globalists are pushing for the peasants to eat bugs, weeds and synthetic ‘meat’ because bugs “consume fewer resources than traditional livestock.”
Last year the World Economic Forum promoted the EU’s new plan to use mealworms in food in their bid to reduce meat consumption.
“Livestock around the world is responsible for around 14.5% of all greenhouse gas emissions relating to human activity. The need for land – whether for grazing animals or growing crops to feed animals – is “the single greatest driver of deforestation, with major consequences for biodiversity loss,” the paper says.
A Manhattan pharma heiress said her mother had to hire her a $300-a-day deprogrammer to unlearn the woke views she was 'brainwashed' with at an all-woman's Massachusetts college.
Annabella Rockwell, 29, graduated from Mount Holyoke in Western Massachusetts in 2015 and said it drove her to drink and made her briefly become estranged from her mother, who threw a vase during one of their arguments.
Prior to attending the elite school to study history, which charges $60,000 a year, Rockwell said she grew up in a 'traditional' household and had considered herself to be open-minded.
However, the politics minor claimed the all-women's school 'totally indoctrinated' her into thinking she was an oppressed victim of the patriarchy.
'This professor tells me about the patriarchy. I barely knew what the word meant. I didn’t know what she was talking about,' she told the New York Post. 'I wasn’t someone that into feminism. I just knew that I felt I had always been free to do what I wanted. I never experienced sexism.
'But I was told there’s the patriarchy and you don’t even understand it’s been working against you your whole life. You’ve been oppressed and you didn’t even know it. Now you have to fight it.
'And I just went down this deep rabbit hole.'
'I saw everything through the lens of oppression and bias and victimhood. I came to the school as someone who saw everyone equally. I left looking for injustice wherever I could and automatically assuming that all white men were sexist.'
Republican lawmakers have decried the Biden administration for policies that they say are weakening America’s military through leftist indoctrination and “woke” ideological posturing to appease “Ivy League faculty lounges or progressive pundits.”
“Unfortunately, President Joe Biden and his administration are weakening America’s warfighters through a sustained assault fueled by woke virtue signaling,” said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) in a report titled “Woke Warfighters,” according to Fox News.
“Our military’s singular purpose is to ‘provide for the common defense’ of our nation. It cannot be turned into a left-wing social experiment. It cannot be used as a cudgel against America itself.”
The report cites several examples of the administration’s stance. One example was Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s first action after being confirmed by the Senate, which included signing a “racism” memorandum. The message directed all service members and Department of Defense civilian employees to conduct a “one-day stand-down” to discuss extremism within their ranks.
A new report from the electricity and gas utility National Grid (which serves parts of New York and Massachusetts) found a rapid increase in electric vehicles on the city streets and highways will require upgraded power grids to handle all the new demand. By 2035, a charging station could demand as much power as a sports arena or small town.
National Grid expects by 2035, large charging stations serving EVs, from SUVs and pickup trucks to delivery vans and semi-trucks, would require 19 megawatts of peak power -- that's approximately what a small town uses. In 2045, those large charging stations could demand upwards of 30 megawatts of capacity, with peak usage of a large manufacturing plant.
National Grid said current charging stations couldn't serve the EV demand of the future, indicating significant power-grid improvements would be needed. It said expanding the charging infrastructure would take time:
"Building these high-voltage interconnections and upgrades can take years, which is why it's important to take action right now.
"By making 'no-regrets' upgrades at 'no-regrets' sites, we can make sure fast-charging is there when drivers need it—and not a moment too late," the report said.
Protests have erupted in Beijing and the far western Xinjiang region over COVID-19 lockdowns and a deadly fire on Thursday in a high-rise building in Urumqi that killed 10 people (with some reports putting the number as high as 40).
Crowds took to the street in Urumqi, the capitol of Xinjiang, with protesters chanting "End the lockdown!" while pumping their fists in the air, following the circulation of videos of the fire on Chinese social media on Friday night.
Protest videos show people in a plaza singing China's national anthem - particularly the line: "Rise up, those who refuse to be slaves!" Others shouted that they did not want lockdowns. In the northern Beijing district of Tiantongyuan, residents tore down signs and took to the streets.
Reuters verified that the footage was published from Urumqi, where many of its 4 million residents have been under some of the country's longest lockdowns, barred from leaving their homes for as long as 100 days.
In the capital of Beijing 2,700 km (1,678 miles) away, some residents under lockdown staged small-scale protests or confronted their local officials over movement restrictions placed on them, with some successfully pressuring them into lifting them ahead of a schedule. -Reuters
It was only a matter of time. The recent Russian pull-back of troops clearly indicated a broad shift in tactics, and the one thing that the Kremlin avoided for several months seemed like the next most logical step - Full spectrum strikes on Ukrainian infrastructure.
Initially, Ukraine's media spin suggested that the precision strikes were "ineffective", with western news outlets showing only a handful of images of craters in streets and some scarred apartment buildings. There were limited admissions of damage to the power and water grids, but Ukraine claimed that these systems would be back and functional within days. This did not happen.
Not surprisingly, Ukraine suffered far more damage to their utilities than the government and media let on. Later estimates ranged from 60% to 80% of the nation's grid destroyed or unusable and the latest satellite photos of active lights at night support this. Below, we can see lights across Ukraine on February 24th at the start of the war.
In response to last week's European Parliament vote to designate Russia as a "state sponsor of terrorism" - one Kremlin-linked official send a threatening message to the European body.
Yevgeny Prigozhin, who is the leader of Russia's most well-known and feared private security firm, Wagner mercenary group, says that he sent a bloodied sledgehammer to European parliament.
"Nine months after invading Ukraine, Vladimir Putin is beginning to fracture the West," Politico observes in a surprising admission which marks a stark reversal from prior mainstream media optimism and cheerleading of the White House's blank check approach to supporting Ukraine. "Top European officials are furious with Joe Biden’s administration and now accuse the Americans of making a fortune from the war, while EU countries suffer."
There's clearly growing frustration among European officials over Washington's refusal to push the Zelensky government to the negotiating table while an unprecedented billions worth of weaponry and defense aid pours in, risking unpredictable escalation between NATO and Russia. Meanwhile European populations will continue being the first to pay the price amid frigid winter temperatures and a simultaneous severe energy supply crisis even as some leaders still spout abstract ideals of "sacrifice".
And all the while Biden has continued rolling out his controversial green subsidies and taxes which are widely perceived as unfairly punishing European industries at this most sensitive juncture.
Heavy snowfall is expected to hit Kyiv – with temperatures dropping below freezingpoint day and night – as millions of people still living in and around the Ukrainian capital struggle with little access to electricity and heat.
Snow is expected on Sunday in Kyiv, a city that had 2.8 million residents before the war, and will continue until midweek with temperatures forecast to stay below freezing.
Ukraine’s power grid operator Ukrenergo said on Saturday that electricity producers were able to cover only three-quarters of consumption needs, necessitating restrictions and blackouts across the country.
Some JetBlue pilots are outraged after the airline hired a violent felon to fly planes even as it refuses to hire people who haven’t taken the COVID vaccine, citing safety.
Two pilots told The Daily Wire that JetBlue has hired John Perrys, who served nine years in prison for breaking into the home of a judge and attacking his daughter as she left the shower. Perrys was released from prison in 2014 and is on felony probation until 2044, according to the Florida Department of Corrections.
“Apparently JetBlue won’t hire unvaccinated pilots, but they will hire violent convicted felons to fly their airplanes,” one pilot said, speaking on condition of anonymity to protect his job.
In 2005, The Associated Press reported that Perrys, then an Air Force captain, was charged in Louisiana with burglary and assault with a deadly weapon while wearing a mask, and that he faced up to life in prison. Perrys allegedly entered the home of a judge and beat the judge’s daughter, who was his former fiancée, with a metal baton as she left the shower. Police said that when he was arrested, he was wearing a bulletproof vest and his vehicle contained knives, handcuffs, parachute cord, a shovel, and a mask, according to the AP.
JetBlue’s job applications say, “Every decision JetBlue has made throughout the pandemic has been with our safety value front and center
Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said Friday that during his seven-hour deposition with Dr. Anthony Fauci, new information revealed that two months after Fauci told a friend masks were "ineffective," he supported mask mandates.
On Friday, the Show-Me State Republican attorney general tweeted a "tidbit" from his deposition with the outgoing head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases:
"Another tidbit from Fauci depo: In Feb ‘20 he emailed a friend advising her masks were ineffective. Confirmed again on Mar 31. On Apr 3he’s adamant masks should be worn even though he couldn’t cite a single study to prove it. Mandates followed—Lives ruined."
Sometimes it seems like nothing ever happens, but this seems like it could be a big deal…
Background: The Brazilian people have flooded the streets in protest at an allegedly rigged and stolen election. Truckers are blocking all highways. Farmers have blocked all ports from exporting agriculture. Bolsonaro has exhausted his legal options, with his election appeal being rejected by a corrupt, opposition-appointed Chief Supreme Court justice.
Bolsonaro is now huddling with the military to plot his next moves.
Pakistan’s former prime minister Imran Khantold tens of thousands of supporters on Saturday that he would fight until his “last drop of blood” in his first public address since being shot in an assassination attempt this month.
The shooting was the latest twist in months of political turmoil that began in April when Khan was ousted by a vote of no confidence in parliament.
Saturday’s rally was the climax of a so-called “long march” by Khan’s PakistanTehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party to press the government to call a snap election before parliament’s term expires in October next year.
“I have seen death from up close,” said Khan, who hobbled to the stage with a walking frame to speak to supporters from a plush seat behind a panel of bulletproof glass.
“I’m more worried about the freedom of Pakistan than my life,” he told the crowd. “I will fight for this country until my last drop of blood.”
he Assault Weapons Ban HR1808 passed the House on July 29, 2022. It’s now on to the Senate, and Chuck Schumer decides if he gets to the floor. The bill bans an enormous number of semi-automatic guns.
HR 1808 makes it unlawful to import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess in or affecting interstate commerce or foreign commerce a so-called semi-automatic assault weapon.
The bill defines an assault weapon as a semi-automatic rifle with a magazine that is not a fixed magazine and has one of the following ascending features, a pistol grip, a forward grip or telescoping stock, a grenade launcher, a barrel shroud, or threaded barrel. It also defines it as a semi-automatic rifle that has a fixed magazine that can accept more than ten rounds.
That’s not all.
It also defines an assault weapon as a semi-automatic pistol that has a magazine that is not fixed and has any of the defending features, including a threaded barrel, a second pistol group, a barrel shroud, and the capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip, a stabilizing brace of if it’s semi-automatic version of an automatic firearm.
Still, again this bill does not just stop there.
It applies to semi-automatic shotguns that have detachable magazines in any of the same features, telescoping stock, a pistol grip, a fixed magazine that can accept more than five rounds, a forward grip, or the ability to accept a detachable magazine.
The definition of assault weapons also lists a variety of models that they are going to try to ban at a federal level.
Central banks across the globe have been itching to transition towards a central bank digital currency.
It’s the holy grail the globalist ruling class has been pursuing in the last two decades. These are folks who want to micromanage all private economic activity across the globe.
One of the best ways to achieve this technocratic vision is by establishing CBDCs.
Those who are still stuck on blue pill politics, will think that such a development is innocuous. After all, who doesn’t like technological innovation that makes things more efficient?
However, we must remember that technology is a value-neutral mechanism. It can be used for good or evil.
In this case, CBDCs will be instruments used by governments to exert massive control over millions of people. With such tools at their disposal, governments will be able to more readily snoop on people and harass them.
Moreover, CBDCs will be used as a tool of mass behavioral modification. Imagine being a dissident who spreads uncomfortable truths about the ruling class. Under a digital currency regime, this person could be effectively de-banked and prevented from engaging in basic economic activity.
Cutting edge technology can give governments cutting edge methods of harassing people.
Those are just a few of the dangers of living under a CBDC regime.
And that kind of system could be coming to the United States.
