Taken Too Much

 Done Being Taken,

There is no room left for parody: Whitney Webbhas the straight scoop. 
This Biden Proposal Could Make the US a “Digital Dictatorship”​  ​
​  ​Last Wednesday, President Biden was widely praised in mainstream and health-care–focused media for his call to create a “new biomedical research agency” modeled after the US military’s “high-risk, high-reward” Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA. As touted by the president, the agency would seek to develop “innovative” and “breakthrough” treatments for cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes, with a call to “end cancer as we know it.”  ​ (huh?​ again?​)
​  ​Far from “ending cancer” in the way most Americans might envision it, the proposed agency would merge “national security” with “health security” in such as way as to use both physical and mental health “warning signs” to prevent outbreaks of disease or violence before they occur. Such a system is a recipe for a technocratic “pre-crime” organization with the potential to criminalize both mental and physical illness as well as “wrongthink.”
​  ​The Biden administration has asked Congress for $6.5 billion to fund the agency, which would be largely guided by Biden’s recently confirmed top science adviser, Eric Lander. Lander, formerly the head of the Silicon Valley–dominated Broad Institute, has been controversial for his ties to eugenicist and child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and his relatively recent praise for James Watson, an overtly racist eugenicist. Despite that, Lander is set to be confirmed by the Senate and Congress and is reportedly significantly enthusiastic about the proposed new “health DARPA.”

​NATO is doing the biggest war games ever on "the Russian front", but something clicked late the week before last that signaled a reduction in tensions (anyway). It seemed to me like some blocking-move(s) had been invisibly put in place​. I'm still thinking about that. Russia did some things at their borders with Ukraine, brought in some huge old motorized artillery pieces from mothballs, that would pound the western Ukies if they attacked Donbas , and it's unclear if those pieces are now in Donbas or Russia, but I'm sure there is a lot more than that going on.

You can't fire me; I'll quit! 
(This implies an alternative payment system already in existence and presumably having been tried out.)

​NATO/US can fight 3 full scale wars at once, right? So the Taliban taking Afghanistan back this spring (waiting until May 1, as agreed by treaty with former president Trumpf) is not even an issue, right? That's no stress at all, right? 
 Moon of Alabama:
The Taliban spring offensive in Afghanistan is more successful than expected.
Today they took the center of Baghlan, a city north of Kabul with some 150,000 inhabitants...
Old #Baghlan town fell to #Taliban after surrender of 100 cops and soldiers. Local account reports that remaining troops are besieged in new part of the city
The city and Baghlan province, marked in pink on the map below, are on the road from Kabul to Tajikistan. This is one of the few 'escape routes' towards a safe country.
That 200 government police and troops laid down their weapons - other reports even say they changed sides - points to the immense fragility of the Afghan forces. Nearly twenty years of U.S. 'training' has had little effect.
Ghazni, south of Kabul, is also under attack and may soon fall to the Taliban.
Yesterday the U.S. launched airstrikes on the southern province Helmand where the Taliban are besieging the province capital Lashkar

It's cool. These guys are all members of the big NATO club. Nothing comes before that.
​  ​After a deal over fishing rights became a major sticking point that almost scuttled a Brexit trade deal between the UK and EU, France and the UK are already feuding over fishing licenses that are supposed to be approved by the UK-dominated island of Jersey, which is facing threats of having its electricity cut off by France if it doesn't stop stalling on issuing fishing licenses to French ships.
​  ​Brussels has already backed France and accused the UK of breaking the newly ratified deal in dispute over Jersey fishing licenses.
​  ​Alarmed by France's threats and a mass of fishing ships arriving in its harbor setting off red flares in protest, the Royal Navy has sent two ships that have just arrived in the island's waters. PM Boris Johnson, who was reportedly only made aware of the conflict this week, says he stands behind the island of Jersey, which is a protectorate of the British Crown.
​  ​French fishermen and ministers have been complaining for two weeks about the difficulty of gaining access to British waters despite the agreement on fisheries reached at the end of last year. Apparently, the British applied new conditions to fisheries applications requiring fishermen to prove via GPS that they have been fishing in Jersey waters, the FT reports.
​  ​Small boat owners argue that they do not have GPS technology and the other electronic surveillance equipment required. Other special conditions attached to the licenses relate to the fishing gear itself. The EU-UK trade deal allows the UK to impose new requirements, but they must be based on "clear scientific rationale". In this case, there doesn't appear to be any rationale for its demands.

​A promise made to a dying patient:

  My grim job this week was to report a vaccine related death to the authorities.  I have had to do this type of reporting on other occasions in my career, with other drugs, both approved and research trials, with both deaths and morbid complications.  In every single instance in the past, without exception, I have been contacted within 1-2 hours by either the FDA or the CDC.  They questioned me, discussed the particulars with me, and a collaboration was begun.  

This death was much different.
  A little about the patient situation. She had her vaccine about 8 AM on a weekday. It was the 2nd shot. Very soon thereafter, she felt electric shocks over her entire body. Later, she was having trouble speaking and could not stand up. She began having severe problems swallowing. I advised to go immediately to the ER. I will not go into details here but suffice it to say, she was having a profound neurologic problem. It was not a simple stroke nor was it a blood clotting issue. Because of the timing of symptom initiation, it was clear to me that the vaccine was likely involved. She was diagnosed with a condition that is very very unusual and is often associated with vaccine administration. She had 5 weeks of very severe pain and did not recover. She was eventually placed on hospice and passed away. Before she died, she told me to make sure that everyone knows that these vaccines are not as safe as advertised. Believe you me, her family is doing everything they can to make sure that this story is known all over the community. The patient herself was a very well-loved individual here – and this has been a blow to the entire area.
  I am a licensed physician in a US state.  I am board certified in Internal Medicine.  I made every effort to immediately report this death to the federal officials.  I called the FDA and ended up in voicemail hell.  I called the CDC and was literally hung up on twice.  Again, please contrast that reception to what I describe above in previous “non-crisis” years.
  After multiple attempts, I finally decided to report to VAERS.  This was almost a week ago.  To date, the VAERS has no record of my patient.  All that I have received is an email to confirm my submission.  No one from any agency has made any effort to contact me in any way.  It was of little comfort to note in in the New York Times, that the physicians trying to report one of the sentinel J&J stroke cases got a similar “hang up in your face” response from the FDA/CDC.
  I want to reiterate – a patient has died.  A board-certified internist feels this is likely vaccine-related.  And no one has made any effort to contact me.  None. A complete departure from the past.  And this is a stringent safety-reporting system?
  What am I trying to say?  The system is broken.  Therefore, we have no idea what is the actual safety profile of these vaccines.  The patients who have been affected know it.  Word is getting out that there are problems.  Social media is filled with all kinds of stories.  And our federal officials keep right on with the same “All is well – everything is safe” mantra.  We have media figures everywhere spouting out safety numbers that I can assure you are not accurate.  All in an environment when they are trying to convince as many as possible to take this vaccine.

Rare Opportunities


  We have a window of opportunity to establish kind and sensible changes in our homes and neighborhoods, in our worlds, this spring.
It looks to me like the stresses between great powers are creating something like a gridlock in global power dynamics.
The US looked like it was going to amplify the Ukrainian civil war, but that seemed to fade last week. 
There was some kind of blocking move.

  The big picture is that the post WW-2 western empire of NATO, neocons and neoliberalism is crumbling, because it is now based upon extortion and extraction, not on production. An extractive system is not healthy and vibrant, and it is faced off against the productive alternative offered by China and Eurasian Integration.
The west cannot make any big attack against the weapons of Russia, China and Iran, so there is stalemate.
  Russia, China and Iran, wisely wait for the western empire to keep unraveling. They do not want to become the threat to pull westerners together.
"When your enemy is defeating himself, do not interfere", quoth The Art Of War, by Sun Tzu.
Russia, China and Iran have been through lots of social turmoil, unraveling and resetting in the formative years of their current sets of leaders.
Those leaders are in their primes, more or less, not like the political geriatrics holding the reins of power in the US.
One of the best paths forward is if any threatened assault, like the NATO threats in Ukraine, spoofed in the west as Russian threats, are just quietly blocked.
  A long period of global military stagnation is in our, human, best interests. We can grow gardens. 
I have no new earth-shattering suggestions as the fuel to power industrial civilization steadily depletes.
  Growing gardens, making real, useful relationships with other humans, to help each other and share ideas, and praying for guidance every day are all I have.
That's probably better than it looks on its face, especially if global military stagnation will buy us time. Praying for spiritual guidance in the interests of love and harmony is not the neoliberal-neocon game plan, but the current masters see it as an impotent diversion for us to dabble in.
  I think they don't understand spiritual coordination. 
I'm sort of glad they don't, sides being taken already, but if they did, they would be different people.
  Try praying for guidance to do the right thing for the good of life in our world and see how that goes.
To whom might one pray, to what entity or force?
However you might envision and experience the spirits of truth, cooperation and compassion should work well.
Altruistic prayer for guidance, naturally includes the practitioner of prayer in the eventual benefits, but it is not selfish.
Selfishness is the problem with the current extractive system of the western-petrobuck-empire. 
It's killing the hosts, killing us. It's not us. It eats us. 
It feeds us with one hand while sucking our lifeblood out through needles and tubes.
  We need to work on our little parallel, inefficient, quaint human life support patterns, the ones people used to use in the old days.
We are wired for this kind of human social cooperation to grow food, build barns, make clothes and shell beans.
We're rusty,  but not hopeless, not at all hopeless. 
This is a good moment for hope and action together.

You should get out more. Go get a nasal swab; you need the activity. 
Maybe you'll have 7 negative days and be able to leave the house with a mask.

A War on Touch
... I am tactile. I perceive the world through physical touch. The current war on intimacy and the physical world at large outrages me because it attacks the very foundation of what makes a human life worth living. Plus, it is based on treachery.
​  ​Let me address the famous counter-argument head on: “Hold on hold on, no one is canceling the world, all of this is simply a reaction to the pandemic, don’t you see?”
​  ​No, it is not. We are being lied to. Let me repeat: We are being lied to. We are being lied to, there are signs of fraud all over the place (from censorship to bad statistics to suppressed effective cures to the fact that the “health response” was ready before the pandemic even started).​ ...
​  But look around. Look around through your 2019 eyes. A reminder: nothing in nature has changed. Any virus would be dangerous to some without cures and with unprecedented levels of stress and medical mismanagement.
​  ​And finally, if there were any actual honest science behind the paradigm of imprisoning healthy people, separating families, closing schools, and betraying beloved elders who have died alone in nursing homes—if there were any actual science behind it, I reassure you, there would not be many skeptics. People generally want to do what helps them stay alive.

Evaluating the effects of shelter-in-place policies during the COVID-19 pandemic
  We estimate the effects of shelter-in-place (SIP) orders during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. We do not find detectable effects of these policies on disease spread or deaths. We find small but measurable effects on mobility that dissipate over time. And we find small, delayed effects on unemployment. We conduct additional analyses that separately assess the effects of expanding versus withdrawing SIP orders and test whether there are spillover effects in other states. Our results are consistent with prior studies showing that SIP orders have accounted for a relatively small share of the mobility trends and economic disruptions associated with the pandemic. We reanalyze two prior studies purporting to show that SIP orders caused large reductions in disease prevalence, and show that those results are not reliable. Our results do not imply that social distancing behavior by individuals, as distinct from SIP policy, is ineffective.  

​This happened in a vibrant and rapidly growing economy, not a crumbling, parasitized economy, with the owners fearful of losing control of us.
Niall Ferguson: How Ike's 1950s America Beat The 'Asian Flu' With Science & Common Sense
​  ​In 1957, the U.S. rose to the challenge of the ‘Asian flu’ with stoicism and a high tolerance for risk, offering a stark contrast with today’s approach to Covid-19...
...1957 also saw the outbreak of one of the biggest pandemics of the modern era. Not coincidentally, another hit of that year was “Rockin’ Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu” by Huey “Piano” Smith & the Clowns.
​  ​When seeking historical analogies for Covid-19, commentators have referred more often to the catastrophic 1918-19 “Spanish influenza” than to the flu pandemic of 1957-58. Yet the later episode deserves to be much better known, not just because the public health threat was a closer match to our own but because American society at the time was better prepared—culturally, institutionally and politically—to deal with it.

Twitter isn’t censoring accounts to keep users ‘safe’, it is using its power to spoon-feed the world establishment narratives

Former UN Employee's Brave Mission,  "Be the drop that tips the bucket."
​  ​After I started speaking up, I discovered so many brave and outspoken people that my heart is filled with gratitude to all of you.
One of my new friends is Mary Otto-Chang.

Mary is a former employee of the United Nations who had a very gratifying and respectable career there.
Then 2020 happened—and like many of us, she started looking into the Great Reset and 4IR agenda—and was so appalled by it that she felt the urge to act.
Mary then created a communication campaign to educate UN employees, government workers and citizens of Canada in general about the Great Reset agenda and the 4IR, in the language that is easy to digest. She went for it as a solo warrior, a move that takes some guts. Currently, she is reaching out to people—including in the UN—bringing their attention to what really is going on.

​John Ward looks at Bill and Melinda's DIVORCE as analogous to other stuff...

  Divorcees have a habit of forming seemingly unlikely new relationships. No option for alliance – good or bad – should be dismissed out of hand…..nor, I suspect, will it be.

("Sultan") Erdogan's Turkey is not picking a side, but is taking the best deals from Russia and the US, and NATO and Ukraine (and has been dealing quietly with Iran, we know), and is also asserting Turkish leadership and autonomy. 
Turkey is at a critical crossroads for pipelines, people, shipping and cultures. Greece was there, Byzantium, and currently the neo-Ottoman Erdogan. It is a critical and rapidly-evolving position.  In a great power stalemate, Turkey chooses to advance quickly.

80% of people who test positive for SARS-CoV-2 in their noses have mild illness. That appears to be due to about 80% of people having significant crossover resistance to COVID, stored in their cellular immunity, in T-cells, from prior infections with other endemic coronavirus strains. Those people basically keep the virus from entering their bloodstreams, where it does not belong, and can cause great harm. The virus attacks the lining of the blood vessels, causing inflammation, clots and lod=ss of blood supply to useful organs like the brain, heart and kidneys.
3 studies now show that even the spike protein alone, in the bloodstream, is inflammatory and causes clots and injury.
​  ​One of the most important pathologies, is hypercoagulation and microclots in the lungs of patients. Here we study the effect of isolated SARS-CoV-2 spike protein S1 subunit as potential inflammagen sui generis. Using scanning electron and fluorescence microscopy as well as mass spectrometry, we investigate the potential of this inflammagen to interact with platelets and fibrin(ogen) directly to cause blood hypercoagulation. Using platelet poor plasma (PPP), we show that spike protein may interfere with blood flow.
It's a good thing nobody is trying to inject spike proteins into us, isn't it?
Some of us have inadvertently chosen to make spike proteins in-house and have strokes, paralysis, brain-clots and other undesired things.
If you don't want to do this, don't accept genetic injections which will make your body do this.  Thanks Jeremy

Nothing Worth Stealing


The CIA Has Been Taking Over For Decades, Lee Camp

  Remember, fascism will come to America wrapped in an American flag, holding a cross, dressed in a skimpy outfit, cradling a bucket of KFC fried chicken, and giving out free handies. Or, as Greenwald put it, “There are few dangers more acute than the weaponization of these security-state-instruments against U.S. citizens for political ends.”
  For generations the Intelligence Community has been a runaway truck — crushing everything in its path, creating coups around the world, killing thousands, and intruding on the lives of average citizens. As I already mentioned, even the president who created the CIA and dropped atomic bombs on people — even that guy felt the CIA was a grave danger to the American experiment. Those concerns started just after he saw a president get whacked live on prime time. I wonder why.

An interview with a transcript, and if you scroll down, a "clean transcript". Lab Origins of COVID-19 (Nothing is specific to the Wuhan lab, and there were a lot of unexplained deaths from viral pneumonia in a retirement community near Ft Detrick MD in June and July 2019, just before the viral lab was shut down for "breach".)
​  ​Two scientists with knowledge of the matter told me the U.S. government conducted genome sequencing almost immediately in the pandemic. Among other things, they say Covid-19 shows clear hallmarks of man’s intervention.
​  ​French virologist Luc Montagnier, a Nobel Prize recipient, arrived at the same conclusion a year ago. He says Covid-19’s genetics reveal “manipulation.” “Someone added sequences,” he said. “It’s the work of professionals, of molecular biologists…a very meticulous work.”

​They'll get you coming and going...​ 
Don't take vitamin-D, Ivermectin, zinc or hydroxychloroquine, which are unapproved and might kill you!
  The Pfizer pharmaceutical company is conducting trials on an antiviral drug could be ready for public use later this year that is intended to attack the spine of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and result in a cure to the sickness.

​Madamski found this Nature article about research on protease inhibitor antivirals for COVID. 
Look, ivermectin acts as a protease inhibitor in this virus!
Our results indicate that boceprevir, ombitasvir, paritaprevir, tipranavir, ivermectin, and micafungin exhibited inhibitory effect towards 3CLpro enzymatic activity. The 100 ns molecular dynamics simulation studies showed that ivermectin may require homodimeric form of 3CLpro enzyme for its inhibitory activity. In summary, these molecules could be useful to develop highly specific therapeutically viable drugs to inhibit the SARS-CoV-2 replication either alone or in combination with drugs specific for other SARS-CoV-2 viral targets.​ 
(Which means: "You can probably make a patentable drug with a little work and rake in billions for the effort, then billions in sales")

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) announced today that it is progressing to multiple ascending doses after completing the dosing of single ascending doses in a Phase 1 study in healthy adults to evaluate the safety and tolerability of an investigational, novel oral antiviral therapeutic for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This Phase 1 trial is being conducted in the United States. The oral antiviral clinical candidate PF-07321332, a SARS-CoV2-3CL protease inhibitor, has demonstrated potent in vitro anti-viral activity against SARS-CoV-2, as well as activity against other coronaviruses, suggesting potential for use in the treatment of COVID-19 as well as potential use to address future coronavirus threats.

​Jeremy sent this story about protecting people from the ministries of their government, by supplying ivermectin despite the threats and consequences:
​  ​Anakalusugan Representative Mike Defensor on Wednesday said he is willing to fight the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in court if the regulatory body will order him to stop his Ivermectin community pantry.
​  ​“If they will again stop this initiative, I will fight them in court because we are compliant legally,” Defensor told reporters in a virtual meeting.
​  ​“On two occasions during the hearings, the FDA said it can be processed. If this will be stopped again and hinder those in need from getting the drug, I will fight them in court. It’s too much,” he added.
​  ​Defensor and Deputy Speaker Rodante Marcoleta will formally launch the event “Ivermectin Pan-three” at the Matandang Balara Hall Park, Quezon City on Thursday morning.
​  ​In the event, beneficiaries will receive at least three free human-grade Ivermectin capsules upon the prescription of doctors affiliated with the Concerned Doctors and Citizens of the Philippines (CDCph), the group of medical experts pushing for the use of the anti-parasitic drug to treat Covid-19.
​  ​Defensor insisted that the free distribution of the said medicine is legal since the compounded Ivermectin, that will be provided, will be coming from Lifecore Bio-integrative, Inc. a licensed compounding laboratory in Quezon City.

Schrodinger's COVID

 Probably OK,

Jeremy provided these top 3 articles today. Jeremy is channeling the Spirit of Truth.

Signs of Things to Come, Consciousness of Sheep
  For those readers not familiar with the crisis; here is the short version (see the linked post for a deeper explanation).  Because humans have consumed the cheapest and easiest fossil fuel deposits first, the quantity of energy we have to devote to securing energy rises remorselessly.  Throughout the growth phase of industrial civilisation (broadly 1750 to 2000) this was not a problem because the energy cost of energy was never high enough to limit growth in the much larger non-energy sectors of the economy.  Beginning in the 1970s though, growth in the western economies began to slow as the energy cost of energy began to drag on the wider economy.  Restricted – and heavily debt-based – growth was able to continue through the 1990s; but at some point in that decade, the energy cost of energy caused average prosperity to begin to decline.  The ensuing debt overshoot eventually brought down the banking and financial system; obliging governments to bail out the system at the cost of the ongoing decline of the “real economy.” ...
  In employment, then, the practical response to the rising energy cost of energy is that employers and workers seek to circumvent labour market regulation which was created in a bygone age when real growth was still possible.  And note that this is a very different reality to the wildly optimistic, hi-tech fantasy of the “Great Reset” in which we are meant to generate sufficient growth to automate almost everything.
​  ​Nor is the gig economy the place where decline stops.  While a large part of the gig economy exists in a legal twilight zone in which a great deal that goes on is unlawful – subject to civil law – very little crosses the boundary into criminality.  But as the energy cost of energy increases, criminal gangs also have a growing incentive to engage in crime as a means of circumventing the laws and regulations of a by-gone age.
​  It is no accident that growing demand for the abolition of slavery corresponded to the growth of coal-powered industrialisation.  Such an economy no longer needs raw labour power – whether waged or forced – because of the huge increase in productivity achieved by industrial technologies backed by an explosion of fossilised sunlight.  Wage labourers were still needed to mind the machines; but they were no longer the power source behind them.  This is seen most clearly in the nineteenth century division between the industrial northern states of the USA, where freed slaves were a useful addition to the growing industrial workforce, and the manual labour-based colonial economies of the southern states whose profit margins were built on the back of slave labourers.​..
​  In the immediate aftermath of the pandemic we will be able to turn a blind eye to all of these attempts to get around the net energy bind that we are now trapped in.  An infusion of state and central bank “stimulus funding” will most likely generate a brief boomlet before the inevitable stagflation arrives.  But the energy cost of energy is going to keep on rising unless someone can very rapidly discover some yet-to-be-discovered higher-density energy source and deploy it at scale.  In the meantime, the amount of energy that has to be devoted to the energy sector of the economy will continue to rise – even if it has to be subsidised by states, businesses and households.  And that draws us ever closer to that net energy cliff beyond which industrial civilisation cannot function:

​  ​For the moment, we are most likely somewhere near the 15:1 point – where we have to devote one unit of energy for energy against 15 units of surplus energy for the non-energy sectors of the economy.  This means that we have passed the point at which we can “save” our way of life; but it is not too late to enter into a managed period of de-growth in which we try to save at least some of the essentials that make life bearable.  But left unmanaged, the various versions of arbitrage, corruption and criminality can only increase and plunge us into a post-industrial dystopia…

​This paper in the scientific journal, Nature implies that 81% of us are not susceptible to bad cases of COVID; and never were...
SARS-CoV-2-derived peptides define heterologous and COVID-19-induced T cell recognition
  T cell immunity is central for the control of viral infections. To characterize T cell immunity, but also for the development of vaccines, identification of exact viral T cell epitopes is fundamental. Here we identify and characterize multiple dominant and subdominant SARS-CoV-2 HLA class I and HLA-DR peptides as potential T cell epitopes in COVID-19 convalescent and unexposed individuals. SARS-CoV-2-specific peptides enabled detection of post-infectious T cell immunity, even in seronegative convalescent individuals. Cross-reactive SARS-CoV-2 peptides revealed pre-existing T cell responses in 81% of unexposed individuals and validated similarity with common cold coronaviruses, providing a functional basis for heterologous immunity in SARS-CoV-2 infection. Diversity of SARS-CoV-2 T cell responses was associated with mild symptoms of COVID-19, providing evidence that immunity requires recognition of multiple epitopes. Together, the proposed SARS-CoV-2 T cell epitopes enable identification of heterologous and post-infectious T cell immunity and facilitate development of diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic measures for COVID-19  

Market Ticker has the relevant implications spelled out here in ALL CAPS:
​  ​81% eh?  Isn't that an interesting number?  Where have we seen that before?
You know damn well where, don't you?
​  ​It's the rough percentage of alleged Covid-19 infections that were either asymptomatic or very low-symptom for which no medical treatment was sought and, in many cases, not detected.
​  ​So it wasn't 30 or 50% who had pre-existing protection it's actually roughly 8 in 10!  This was not a "novel, everyone is susceptible" virus at all.  It never was.  You were lied to from the very beginning and thus all the "models" based on that were trash.​..​

​ Now we know what Diamond Princess happened the way it did.  It was never possible for more than 20% of the people on that ship to get seriously-symptomatic Covid-19 despite being cooped up in close quarters for weeks with an aerosol-spread disease and cruise passengers generally being wildly-overrepresented for various morbidity factors.  It also completely explains why one of two people quarantined in the same cabin got sick and the other did not.
  We also know why there is no place on the planet that has seen >20% of people with significant, symptomatic disease from Covid-19...
In 100% of the persons who had and recovered from Covid-19 and 81% of those who have never had the virus a vaccine may well be worthless as they already have T-cell response.  While this will not prevent them from getting it again there is questionable at best benefit over their existing immunological state but there is risk, including a risk of death, from the side effects.​..​
​  ​One point stands out from this study and, in combination with the study documenting pathogenic response to the spike protein alone is now evident: "Warp Speed" was stupid; it targeted the wrong thing, it has made people specifically vulnerable to nasty outcomes during the month or so before "protection" is allegedly achieved and fails to provide durable protection to the nucleocapsid portion of the virus as it does not target that at all.  Further, in roughly 80% of the population as a whole taking the shot is worse than worthless since they are not exposed to severe disease in the first place but the shot is likely to temporarily block the asymptomatic or low-symptom infection that would perfect their natural immunity to the nucleocapsid portion of the virus that is required for replication while exposing said persons to the risk of severe or even fatal side effects by producing a systemic invasion of the spike protein which, if said person was naturally infected, would likely not occur since the person's immune system can recognize the original infected cells in the respiratory tract and prevent the replication cycle from completing and becoming systemic.  And even worse at some point in the future as antibodies wane said persons without nucleocapsid protection are exposed to that risk again but have no idea when that risk has become significant since there's no reasonable way to know what your antibody titer is over time.

​  I would like to present a hypothesis from the COVID-19 Treating Physicians list, which is that the increased "confirmed" COVID-19 cases and COVID-19 deaths in the 2 weeks following vaccination are actually vaccine adverse reactions, which test positive for SARS-CoV-2, because the "vaccines" cause the body to produce, and widely distribute, exactly the spike=protein fragments which the test detects in the nasal mucous.​
  One of my patients was recently hospitalized about a week after an mRNA vaccination, and tested positive for COVID with a nasal swab, so her pneumonia was COVID-Pneumonia. She had been hospitalized last August for a bad case of COVID. She had antibodies. She got an inflammatory response. The hospital put her on steroids and oxygen, and she lived. A week after discharge, still on blood thinners, she was short of breath again, and had a blood clot in her lungs. She was admitted again. We are monitoring her blood thinner doses. My clinic has called her to get her second vaccine shot. 
I have written that she should not, but how do I back that up? 
She obviously got COVID again, so obviously needs the shot, though a 3 month wait after COVID is considered "abundantly cautious".

It does not appear to matter how close you are to a spreader of SARS-CoV-2 indoors, just that you are indoors with them and their dispering cloud of viral particles.

After relentlessly pushing one of the most injurious vaccines of all time, and suppressing the use of vitamin-D, ivermectin, zinc and hydroxychloroquine, 
Pfizer prepares to launch an early-treatment pill for COVID this fall.

Truth Beats Lies


We Have A COVID Lifeline. The Powers Won’t Allow It.Mary Beth Pfeiffer​
In a widely reported announcement, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned, “Why You Should Not Use Ivermectin to Treat or Prevent COVID-19.”​ ...​
​  ​A website tracker summarizes those 52 ivermectin trials, involving more than 17,500 patients. Collectively, ivermectin:
–Prevented 85 percent of infections (similar to vaccines);
–Resolved 81 percent of early illness;
–Improved 43 percent of late-treated patients;
–Reduced deaths by 76 percent.  
As authorities dismiss study after study, it has become clear. The drug’s rejection is not based on science, data or the experience of many doctors. Instead, a disinformation campaign is raging to demonize the drug and belittle studies that support it.

Lots of information about physiologic benefits of vitamin-D here, Note that Michael Hollick MD, PhD is an author  
Vitamin D and Its Potential Benefit for the COVID-19 Pandemic  
​  ​Vitamin D is known not only for its importance for bone health but also for its biologic activities on many other organ systems. This is due to the presence of the vitamin D receptor in various types of cells and tissues, including the skin, skeletal muscle, adipose tissue, endocrine pancreas, immune cells, and blood vessels. Experimental studies have shown that vitamin D exerts several actions that are thought to be protective against coronavirus disease (COVID-19) infectivity and severity. These include the immunomodulatory effects on the innate and adaptive immune systems, the regulatory effects on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone-system in the kidneys and the lungs, and the protective effects against endothelial dysfunction and thrombosis. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, studies have shown that vitamin D supplementation is beneficial in protecting against risk of acquiring acute respiratory viral infection and may improve outcomes in sepsis and critically ill patients. There are a growing number of data connecting COVID-19 infectivity and severity with vitamin D status, suggesting a potential benefit of vitamin D supplementation for primary prevention or as an adjunctive treatment of COVID-19. Although the results from most ongoing randomized clinical trials aiming to prove the benefit of vitamin D supplementation for these purposes are still pending, there is no downside to increasing vitamin D intake and having sensible sunlight exposure to maintain serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D at a level of least 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L) and preferably 40 to 60 ng/mL (100-150 nmol/L) to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection and its severity.

​The (16 page) 2007 Vitamin-D paper by Dr Hollick that really got me interested in Vitamin-D, testing and treating patients for deficiency. 
(I did discover that I needed much higher doses than he lists in the paper, and the journal article above also uses much higher doses. I don't know why, but I need 5000 units per day for several months to get most people up into the normal range, twice that if they are obese.)

Isreali Health Body Report On COVID Vax ‘Deadly’ Impacts    Thanks Jeremy
  The Israeli People Committee (IPC), a civilian body made of leading Israeli health experts, has published its April report into the Pfizer vaccine’s side effects.* The findings are catastrophic on every possible level.
  Their verdict is that “there has never been a vaccine that has harmed as many people.”  The report is long and detailed. I will outline just some of the most devastating findings presented in the report.
  “We received 288 death reports in proximity to vaccination (90% up to 10 days after the vaccination), 64% of those were men.” Yet the report states, “according to data provided by the Ministry of Health, only 45 deaths in Israel were vaccine related.” If the numbers above are sincere then Israel, which claimed to conduct a world experiment, failed to genuinely report on its experiment’s results.
  We often hear about blood clots caused by the AstraZeneca vaccine. For instance, we learned this morning about 300 cases of blood clots in of Europe. However, if the IPC’s findings are genuine, then in Israel alone the Pfizer vaccine may be associated with more deaths than AstraZeneca’s in the whole of Europe.

We can’t expect COVID-19 to go away; we should plan accordingly,
Gail Tverberg , Actuary​, Thermoeconomics Analyst

​  ​In this post, I explain why, in my view, COVID-19 seems likely to become endemic, like the flu. The vaccines won’t be enough to make it go away completely. I will also look at the issue of how we should respond to the cases of COVID-19 that we will almost certainly experience in the future.
​  To a significant extent, what we can and should do in the future is an energy issue. If we plan to transition to a green energy future, or if we simply plan to reduce usage of fossil fuels in future years, we probably need to scale back our plans for vaccines. In fact, any treatment that would be given in today’s emergency rooms is likely to become less and less possible as energy supplies deplete.
​  We will need to focus more on what our bodies can do for us, and what we can do to assist them in this effort. We also need to think about what simple changes to our environment (such as windows that open) can do for the prevention of both COVID-19 and the many other communicable diseases that we can expect to encounter in the future. ​  ​

John​ ​Ward presents actual statistics about COVID-19 in India, which is doing very well, not terribly.
​  ​Unless you made an early getaway to Planet Drongo before the lockdown, you will have read pretty much everywhere that “India sees world’s highest daily cases amid oxygen shortage”. In fact, the BBC tells us that “some people” have died waiting for oxygen, the Indian health service is “completely overwhelmed” and the country now has “sixteen million cases”.So it’s a disaster, right? Well actually, no – it isn’t. The Indian health ministry has already made it clear that the Covid19 variant they’re dealing with this year has “a considerably lower death rate than the previous version”.
​  ​Go to the Worldometer site, and you’ll see that India’s deaths per million is a minute 134: that’s 7% of the US and French figures, 6% of the UK and Italy’s and the lowest by far of any country in the Top 30 for cases. Virtually no vaccination has been undertaken in India (only 1.3% are fully vaccinated) and the country is not using lockdowns. The Times of India has just denied the BBC’s ‘deaths from oxygen shortage’ fakery.
​  ​What India IS doing, however, is employing the anti-inflammatory drugs tocilizumab and itolizumab and the antivirals favipiravir and hydroxychloroquine on a very wide scale. Go to Pharma site/accolyte spaces, and you’ll see all four drugs being rubbished: the Pharmafia and their bureaucratic whores don’t want any signs of a success to get out.
​  But the Truth already is out there: India is doing spectacularly well without either vaccines or lockdown. You won’t find that reality expressed anywhere in the Western MSM, but the facts show that its infection management drugs have delivered one of the lowest case to death rates on the planet.
​  ​Not that you’d notice, reading  Bloomberg: (my emphases)
​  ​‘India saw the world’s biggest one-day jump in coronavirus cases ever as a ferocious new wave grips the country, overwhelming hospitals and crematoriums and prompting frantic cries for help on social media.
​  ​The South Asian nation reported 314,835 new infections Thursday, topping a peak of 314,312 recorded in the U.S. on Dec. 21. People took to Twitter and Instagram to call for everything from hospital beds to medicine and doorstep Covid-19 tests.
​  ​The grim milestone shows how the pandemic crisis has shifted firmly to the developing world, where variants and complacency are threatening containment measures and there’s a lack of vaccines, with supplies dominated by richer nations.’
​  ​It’s a pack of lies from end to end. India has a population of 1.4 billion people – so overcrowding is almost generic – and being four times more people than the US, the comparison with America is completely ludicrous. Hospitals do not get overwhelmed when 134 folks out of a million get ill. India’s water purity and basic hygiene measures are very Third World. Yet despite all that, it is doing phenomenally well against Covid….by having and doing respectively none of the advantages and policies of the West.
​  ​Sloppy journalism? No – criminally misleading journalism designed to scare as many people into vaccination as possible.

Corruption in the Medical Establishment
Unpleasant facts​, ​Tessa Lena​ ​
​  ​This article is meant as something simple and logical that you can send to friends who still blindly trust in the American medical establishment. It’s a collection of stories and links that are not conspiratorial at all. All logical, all “respectable,” bland almost—yet demonstrating beyond any reasonable doubt that we need to watch out for ourselves.

​We all lived at Camp Lejeune , North Carolina, which had the biggest TCE contamination of the drinking water of anywhere, but we didn't know it. We drank it and swam laps and laps and laps in it. My Dad got Parkinson's disease, and he died in early 2018, and we are just hearing about this.
Rates of Parkinson’s disease are exploding. A common chemical may be to blame
​  Dorsey, a neurologist at the University of Rochester Medical Center and author of Ending Parkinson’s Disease, believes a Parkinson’s epidemic is on the horizon. Parkinson’s is already the fastest-growing neurological disorder in the world; in the US, the number of people with Parkinson’s has increased 35% the last 10 years, says Dorsey, and “We think over the next 25 years it will double again.”
  Most cases of Parkinson’s disease are considered idiopathic – they lack a clear cause. Yet researchers increasingly believe that one factor is environmental exposure to trichloroethylene (TCE), a chemical compound used in industrial degreasing, dry-cleaning and household products such as some shoe polishes and carpet cleaners.

Anticipating Sudden Letdown


  Our present western economic system is based upon faith in a future which cannot possibly transpire. That faith is growing thinner and thinner, so the leverage on the bets is growing higher and higher, to maintain the amount of skim-profit, to which our elite class and their upper managers are accustomed. The system crashed in 2008, but was resuscitated with more skim than ever to bankers and financiers, and more promises than ever for everybody else. This was sustained by "whatever it took" in money printing and asset-buying by central banks, It's the biggest ponzi scheme ever, and the Federal Reserve banking system is the final sucker. There was an overnight-repo crisis in late summer of 2019, when the major banks quit trusting each other overnight. 
The fix was the Fed, again. 
"Repo" still broken after over a year of social distancing and lockdowns. That didn't create overnight trust at the level of major global banks. 

  The top 10%, the managerial class, has been bribed to hold things together for 13 years. 
The present system will not hold together without their best efforts.
Elites have no plan but to retain power indefinitely.  
When does the system break? Next month? June? 
Got beans? Got water? Got cash? Got friends?

Anthony Ward, "The Slog"
​  ​What I find worrying tonight is the number of people whose experience I trust offering remarkably similar predictions: in a relatively narrow time range from mid-May to late June, they all see time finally running out for by far the most mendacious stock valuation bubble in bourse history.
​  ​The control, containment and citizen obedience being demanded by States around the globe is in near-zero relation to the homoaeopathic threat from SarsCov2. We are about to see the real reason for accustoming us to the idea of virtue-signalled, false necessity.


​  ​The $30 billion in Archegos derivatives that went up in smoke over a weekend is just the tip of the iceberg. The hedge fund Archegos lost everything and the normal uber-leveraged players Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, Nomura etc lost at least $30 billion.
​  ​These investment banks are making casino bets that they can’t afford to lose. What their boards and top management don’t realise or understand is that the traders, supported by easily manipulated risk managers, are betting the bank on a daily basis.​..
​  ​Just take the notorious Deutsche Bank (DB) that has outstanding derivatives of €37 trillion against total equity of €62 billion. Thus the derivatives position is 600X the equity.
Or to put it in a different way, the equity is 0.17% of the outstanding derivatives. So a loss of 0.2% on the derivatives will wipe the share capital and the bank out!
​  ​Now the DB risk managers will argue that the net derivatives position is just a fraction of the €37 trillion at €20 billion. That is of course nonsense as we saw with Archegos when a few banks let $30 billion over a weekend.
​  ​Derivatives can only be netted down on the basis that counterparties pay up. But in a real systemic crisis, counterparties will disappear and gross exposure will remain gross.

​  11 years ago in Afghanistan, news of massive mineral deposits came out. 
It's not just heroin and the ability to disrupt Russia, China and Iran that makes this real estate valuable to the crumbling western empire.​
$1 Trillion Motherlode of Lithium and Gold Discovered in Afghanistan​ , June 16, 2010
​  ​The previously unknown deposits — including huge veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and critical industrial metals like lithium — are so big and include so many minerals that are essential to modern industry that Afghanistan could eventually be transformed into one of the most important mining centers in the world. An internal Pentagon memo, for example, states that Afghanistan could become the “Saudi Arabia of lithium,” a key raw material in the manufacture of batteries...

Biden isn’t ending the Afghanistan War, he’s privatizing it: Special Forces, Pentagon contractors, intelligence operatives will remain
​  ​Over 18,000 Pentagon contractors remain in Afghanistan, while official troops number 2,500. Joe Biden will withdraw this smaller group of soldiers 
while leaving behind US Special Forces, mercenaries, and intelligence operatives — privatizing and downscaling the war, but not ending it.

​This article fails to mention that the massive Russian military build-up around Ukraine came after a massive NATO build up around Ukraine, and many truck and trainloads of weapons shipped to Ukraine, and Ukranian military movements, and that "effective declaration of war" by Ukraine, against Russia, declaring the unanimous ​vote of Crimea to rejoin Russia null and void, and making Crimea a Ukranian target for invasion.
​  ​As the hostile rhetoric and military moves around Ukraine have intensified, Western politicians have begun fearing an open invasion and urging Russia's Vladimir Putin to "de-escalate".
Russia has refused: the defense ministry this week insisted its moves were in response to "threatening" Nato exercises in Europe.
Then Mr Putin got a phone-call from the White House.
And then, noted the BBC, Biden suggested a near-future face-to-face summit with Putin, which gives Russia the edge given it was the US side that first proposed it:
​  ​"In Putin's game of brinkmanship, Biden blinked first," argues journalist Konstantin Eggert, after Joe Biden made his first call to the Kremlin and proposed meeting Mr Putin "in the coming months".
It's just weeks after the US president agreed with an interviewer that Russia's leader was "a killer".
​  ​President Biden's new move is now a new topic of debate - disaster prevention or a mistaken concession - but in the run-up to a summit, the risk of major military action by Russia certainly fades.
​  ​"That would be really unstatesmanlike: a slap in Biden's face," Mr Eggert told the BBC. "But the fact that it was Biden who suggested they meet does give Putin the edge."

Pepe Escobar:  So Who Wants a Hot War?
  It’s not by accident that the Hegemon is going no holds barred to harass and try to smash Eurasian integration by all means available...
Much more than NATO advisers in a frantic revolving door in Kiev, the real shadowplay is MI6 actually working very close with President Zelensky.
Zelensky’s warmongering script comes directly from MI6’s Richard Moore. Russian intel is very much aware of all the fine print.​..
​  Careless whispers in Brussels corridors swear that MI6 actually believes that in the case of a volcanic but as it stands still preventable hot war with Russia, continental Europe would burn and Brexitland would be spared...
​...​Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu examining step by step the deployment of the annual US Army DEFENDER-Europe 21: “The main forces are concentrated in the Black Sea and Baltic region.”​ ...
​  When in doubt, call the irreplaceable Andrei Martyanov – who always tells it like it is. The Crash Test Dummy gang in D.C. still does not get it – although some Deep State pros do.
Here’s Martyanov:
​  ​As I am on record constantly – the United States never fought a war with its Command and Control system under the relentless sustained fire impact and its rear attacked and disorganized. Conventionally, the United States cannot win against Russia in Europe, at least Eastern part of it and Biden Admin better wake up to the reality that it may, indeed, not survive any kind of escalation and, in fact, modern Kalibrs, 3M14Ms, as a matter of fact, have a range of a 4,500 kilometers, as well as 5,000+ kilometer range of X-101 cruise missiles, which will have no issues with penetrating North American airspace when launched by Russia’s strategic bombers without even leaving the safety of Russia’s airspace.​..
...Triple Yoda Patrushev mentioned a very civilized late March phone call he had with US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan. Of course there’s no smokin’ gun, but if anyone would come up with the face-saving idea of a Biden-Putin phone call that would have been Sullivan.
​  ​The spin from Washington and Moscow is only slightly divergent. The Americans highlight that “Biden” – actually the deciding combo behind him – wants to build “a stable and predictable relationship with Russia, consistent with US interests.”
  T​he Kremlin said that Biden “expressed interest in normalizing bilateral relations.”
Away from all this fog, what really matters is Patrushev-Sullivan. That has to do with Washington telling Turkey that US warships would be transiting the Bosphorus towards the Black Sea. Sullivan must have told Patrushev that no, they won’t be “active” in Donbass. And Patrushev told Sullivan, OK, we won’t incinerate them.​..
​  So the cliffhanger – like a teaser for Snowpiercer – is what happens when Nord Stream 2 is completed.​..
​  Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Sergei Ryabkov, has struck a much less Daoist note than Peskov: “The United States is our enemy, doing everything to undermine Russia’s position in the international arena, we do not see other elements in their approach to us. These are our conclusions”
That’s stone to the bone realpolitik. Ryabkov knows the Hegemon’s “non agreement-capable” mindset inside out.​..​
​  ​Putin reiterated Minsk 2 on his live teleconference with Merkel and Macron – and certainly to “Biden” in their phone call. The Beltway, the EU and NATO are all aware of it. Minsk 2 was signed by Ukraine, France and Germany and certified by the UN Security Council. If Kiev violates it, Russia – as a member of the UNSC – must enforce it.
​  ​Kiev has been violating Minsk 2 for months now; it refuses to implement it. As a faithful Hegemon satrapy, they are also not “agreement-capable”. Yet now they are seeing the – firepower – writing on the wall if they as much as think of starting a blitzkrieg against Donbass.​..
  Ideally, Ukraine/Donbass would be inserted in the overall revival of the Silk Roads – as in internal Central Eurasian trade based and developed taking into consideration Eurasia-wide demand. Eurasia integration – in both the Chinese and Russian vision – are all about interconnected economies via inter-regional trade.
​  ​So it’s not by accident that the Hegemon – on the verge of becoming an irrelevant player across Eurasia – is going no holds barred to harass and try to smash the continental integration by all means available.

​  ​Following on the heels of last week's Joe Biden invitation to Vladimir Putin for a bilateral summit proposed for the summer to tackle a range of still simmering contentious issues, Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky has issued a surprised invitation late Tuesday for Putin to meet him in the war-torn east of Ukraine.
​  ​In making the announcement Zelensky told Putin that such a direct high states meeting where the two leaders can talk de-escalation is essential as there are a "million lives at stake" in any potential outbreak of major conflict,

Vladimir Putin's State Of The Nation Address:  (a few excerpts)
 "We behave in a restrained, modest manner. Oftentimes we do not respond to outright rudeness; we want to have good relations. 
We are not looking to burn any bridges."
​  ​"I hope no one will think of crossing so-called 'red lines' against Russia, which we ourselves will define in each separate case. Russia’s response will be symmetrical, fast and tough. The organizers of any provocations threatening our core security interests will regret their actions more than they've regretted anything in a long time."
 "But now this practice is degenerating into something more dangerous — for example, an attempt to organize a coup in Belarus and an attempt to assassinate this country's president.... The West is silent on this matter."

"You can have any position on Lukashenko's policies, but staging a goverment coup and planning the assassination of a head of state is too much."
​  ​And on Biden's recent sanctions...
"It seems that everyone is already accustomed to the practice of imposing illegal, politically motivated sanctions, attempts to impose their will on others by force."​ ...
​  On Russian national spirituality and traditional religion:
​  "And today, family, friendship, mutual assistance, and compassion have come to the fore for us. Spiritual and moral values, which some countries are forgetting about, have, on the contrary, made us stronger, and we will always uphold and protect these values," Putin pledged.
​  Putin added that the service of representatives of traditional religions had become "the spiritual backbone of society, as it always was in difficult times." That said, the head of state addressed the clergy present in the hall, "I would like to take a deep bow before you all. Thank you very much."

​Relations between the USand Russia are being dismantled, of necessity, with or without a Putin-Biden summit:
​ At this point, Russia and the US have hardly anything to discuss, except what is nicely dubbed “deconflicting” (i.e. Syria and Ukraine), which is actually the military officials’ domain – and they’re working on it themselves, anyway. Even the go-to subject – strategic stability – is now in limbo, because the previous framework is gone, and working out a new one would require a serious intellectual effort and joining forces to create something that would reflect the current international and technological realities. To do that kind of work, there has to be some enthusiasm and at least basic trust, and we have neither.​..
​  The attempts of Biden’s administration to recreate the old pattern of “free world” versus “aggressive tyrannies” are doomed to fail, because neither exists in its previous clear-cut form. In a sense, we should help Washington and respond by developing closer and more sophisticated ties between Russia and China, especially since the latter is shocked by how Biden and his team have chosen to handle US relations with Beijing.
​  ​Minimizing the risks of unnecessary confrontations and diligently working on withstanding any kind of pressure is the main track for the Russian-US relations in the near future. Working together should be limited to very specific and practical concerns, if they arise. At some point, there will be demand for a new type of relationship. That’s when we should start talking about it, and not a minute earlier.

Luc sends the 24 minute "Story of Ivermectin", which is also the story of how powerful financial interests in Big Pharma have suppressed cheap, effective treatments for COVID, while making everybody wait and beg for bad and dangerous stuff like remdesivir and various genetic engineering "vaccines" which make your body produce the dangerous COVID spike protein in your own cells. (80% of people who get COVID in their noses stop it there. It never gets into their bloodstreams).
Do take 5000 units per day of vitamin-D to help your immune system do it's best work.

This more aggressive strain still responds to repurposed antivirals like ivermectin.
 Brazil’s P1 coronavirus variant, behind a deadly COVID-19 surge in the Latin American country that has raised international alarm, is mutating in ways that could make it better able to evade antibodies, according to scientists studying the virus.

​Hank Arron's death was remarkably similar to this one. "Natural Causes":
​  ​Many Americans have heard the news account of Dr. Gregory Michael, a 56-year-old Florida physician who, after receiving his first dose of a Pfizer COVID vaccine on December 18 of last year, was hospitalized three days later. He had a total loss of his platelets — the little blood cells that stop bleeding. In spite of being treated by a team of physicians, he died two weeks later from a brain hemorrhage, and was reported to have had zero platelets. By February 10, 2021, 36 other similar cases were reported in the mainstream media. Pfizer, which along with its partner BioNTech made the vaccine the doctor received, said in a statement that it was aware of the death. Typically, they concluded, “We are actively investigating this case, but we don’t believe at this time that there is any direct connection to the vaccine.”
​  ​Pfizer made this “finding” despite several unusual circumstances of the case. First, low-platelet disorders, known as idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), most commonly affect children, and generally follow a viral illness. Only 10 percent of ITP cases occur in adults, who usually present with a slow onset form of the disorder, referred to as chronic ITP. The disorder usually starts by someone noticing easy bleeding, such as slow oozing from gums or the nose, or bruises showing up without trauma. Rarely do platelets drop below 20,000, and generally treatment either reverses the disease or prolongs life for years in spite of the problem.
​  What happened to this physician and the others seems to be a new previously unseen problem related to vaccination — despite the manufacturers’ claims.

  Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-Cov-2)-induced infection, the cause of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is characterized by unprecedented clinical pathologies. One of the most important pathologies, is hypercoagulation and microclots in the lungs of patients. 
​​Here we study the effect of isolated SARS-CoV-2 spike protein S1 subunit as potential inflammagen sui generis...
. These proteins were substantially resistant to trypsinization, in the presence of spike protein S1. Here we suggest that, in part, the presence of spike protein in circulation may contribute to the hypercoagulation in COVID-19 positive patients and may cause substantial impairment of fibrinolysis.
Such lytic impairment may result in the persistent large microclots we have noted here and previously in plasma samples of COVID-19 patients.

Latest VAERS Data Show Reports of Blood Clotting Disorders After All Three Emergency Use Authorization Vaccines
VAERS data released today showed 795 reports related to blood clotting disorders with 400 attributed to Pfizer, 337 to Moderna and 56 to Johnson & Johnson between Dec. 14, 2020 and April 8, 2021.​  
(Pfizer is worst, then J&J, then Moderna. All similar​. Spike protein in blood.​)

Human Confusion Update

Complex Polynomials,

  Texas is finally getting a small uptick in positive COVID tests and hospitalizations, in the post-Easter period. The rapid antigen (fewer false positives) percent positive rate has ticked up to 3.4%. 
Is this the UK strain? Is this Brazilian strain? Was this entire families of all ages, and churches getting together? 
All of the above?

The UK B 1.1.7. variant is the most reported in the US, followed by the Brazilian P.1 variant, which is more contagious, more deadly, partly vaccine-resistant, and reports from Brazilian treating physicians, using Ivermectin based therapies, are that it is harder to treat with the medicines they have been using, though it does still respond and improve with those medicines.

I remember Judd For The Defense and Perry Mason: Thanks Jeremy
American Hero: Ralph C. Lorigo Fights for Client Rights Including Access to Ivermectin for COVID-19 Patients At Risk
​  ​Especially if elderly high risk patients present advanced COVID-19, Lorigo has personally seen the drug potentially contribute to saving the lives of clients. Interestingly, the attorney reports that it would appear that hospital administrations are the most recalcitrant to the idea, even if the patients and the ICU doctor are in support. It’s as if the COVID-19 wings of all hospitals are completely opposed to any suggestion of this particular medication. In the age of COVID-19, the COVID-19 wing is sort of a “federalized” operation.

​  ​CS Lewis said, “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.” ...
​  ​Covid-19 vaccine passports, the latest insult in the unending stream of scientifically inapt actions as outlined above, is already driving extensive anguish and debate. These digital passports linked to one’s entire life experience with geolocated data and one’s personal medical information represents the latest intrusion and attack on our freedoms that have been put before the easily distracted populace. These passports are simply unjustifiable on any grounds, not the least of which is the fact that SARS CoV-2 is no more deadly on a population level than influenza. Ostensibly, the passports are designed to allow individuals to partake in everyday commerce and “life” with freedom.

  Facebook’s growing role in the ever-expanding surveillance and “pre-crime” apparatus of the national security state demands new scrutiny of the company’s origins and its products as they relate to a former, controversial DARPA-run surveillance program that was essentially analogous to what is currently the world’s largest social network.
(Total Information Awareness: TIA)
​  ​The TIA program met with considerable citizen outrage after it was revealed to the public in early 2003. TIA’s critics included the American Civil Liberties Union, which claimed that the surveillance effort would “kill privacy in America” because “every aspect of our lives would be catalogued,” while several mainstream media outlets warned that TIA was “fighting terror by terrifying US citizens.” As a result of the pressure, DARPA changed the program’s name to Terrorist Information Awareness to make it sound less like a national-security panopticon and more like a program aiming specifically at terrorists in the post-9/11 era...
​  ​The information that LifeLog gleaned from an individual’s every interaction with technology would be combined with information obtained from a GPS transmitter that tracked and documented the person’s location, audio-visual sensors that recorded what the person saw and said, as well as biomedical monitors that gauged the person’s health. Like TIA, LifeLog was promoted by DARPA as potentially supporting “medical research and the early detection of an emerging epidemic.”
​  ​Critics in mainstream media outlets and elsewhere were quick to point out that the program would inevitably be used to build profiles on dissidents as well as suspected terrorists. Combined with TIA’s surveillance of individuals at multiple levels, LifeLog went farther by “adding physical information (like how we feel) and media data (like what we read) to this transactional data.”

​  ​Top US officials are reportedly calling for a hard look at China’s plans for a digital yuan, after raising concerns that the new currency may potentially challenge the greenback as the world’s dominant reserve currency.
​  ​Officials at the Treasury, State Department, Pentagon, and National Security Council are currently trying to explore the potential implications of China’s new sovereign digital currency, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg...
​  ​Last year, the People’s Bank of China revealed plans to have its sovereign digital currency ready in time for the 2022 Winter Olympics. China became the first country in the world to test such a product on a national level.
​  ​According to the Chinese central bank, the new currency will share some features with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. The digital yuan is projected to replace banknotes and coins.
​  ​The White House is said not to be planning any measures against the e-yuan, but is highly interested in creating a digital dollar.

​  I personally like that the US may create a competitive (lossless-I-presume)​ digital dollar to replace paper $100 bills as the global anonymously circulating currency of  economies everywhere. If the initial creation of each "dollar" lies with the Treasury, not with private banking, then the benefits of "seigniorage" accrue to the collective, not the private. Creation of debt-money-at-interest could be curtailed, or value contributed to the commons (even if through a captured bureaucracy).
