Germ Warfare

 Integrative Analysts,

  Pepe Escobar reviews Disintegration, Indicator of the Coming American Collapse (I might substitute "Imperial" for "American". It's not just Americans behind this.)
  One of Martyanov’s key assessments is that having lost the arms race and every single war it unleashed in the 21st century – as the record shows – geoeconomics is essentially a “euphemism for America’s non-stop sanctions and attempts to sabotage the economies of any nation capable of competing with the United States” (see, for instance, the ongoing Nord Stream 2 saga). This is “the only tool” (his italics) the US is using trying to halt its decline.
​  ​On a chapter on Energy, Martyanov demonstrates how the US shale oil adventure is financially non-viable, and how a rise in oil exports was essentially due to the US “pickin up’ quotas freed chiefly as a result of Russia and Saudi Arabia’s earlier cuts within OPEC + in an attempt to balance the world’s oil market”.
​  ​In Chapter 7, Losing the Arms Race, Martyanov expands on the key theme he’s the undisputed superstar: the United States cannot win wars. Inflicting Hybrid War is another matter entirely, as in creating “a lot of misery around the world, from effectively starving people to killing them outright”.
​  ​A glaring example has been “maximum pressure” economic sanctions on Iran. But the point is these tools – which also included the assassination of Gen Soleimani – that are part of the arsenal of “spreading democracy” have nothing to do with “geoeconomics”, but have “everything to do with the raw power plays designed to achieve the main Clausewitzian object of war – ‘to compel our enemy to do our will’”. And “for America, most of the world is the enemy”.
​  ​Martyanov also feels compelled to update what he’s been excelling at for years: the fact that the arrival of hypersonic missiles “has changed warfare forever”. The Khinzal, deployed way back in 2017, has a range of 2,000 km and “is not interceptable by existing US anti-missile systems”. The 3M22 Zircon “changes the calculus of both naval and ground warfare completely”. The US lag behind Russia in air-defense systems is “massive, and both quantitative and qualitative”.
​  ​Disintegration additionally qualifies as a sharp critique of the eminently post-modernist phenomenon – starring infinite cultural fragmentation and the refusal to accept that “truth is knowable and can be agreed upon” – responsible for the current social re-engineering of the US, in tandem with an oligarchy that “realistically, is not very bright, despite being rich”.
​  ​And then there’s rampant Russophobia. Martyanov sounds the definitive red alert: “Of course, the United States is still capable of starting a war with Russia, but if it does so, this will mean only one thing – the United States will cease to exist, as will most of the human civilization. The horrific thing is that there are some people in the US for whom even this price is too small to pay.”
​  ​In the end, a cool scientific intellect cannot but rely on sound realpolitik: assuming the US avoids complete disintegration into “separatist territories”, Martyanov stresses that the only way for the American “elite” to maintain any kind of control “over generations increasingly woke or desensitized by drugs” is through tyranny.

  ​I will comment that the Biden Administration withdrawing sanctions against the Nordstream-2 pipeline is a signal that the end of the unipolar moment has finally been understood by the Western elites.​

  Tom Luongo has been following the Basel-3 accord, and it's implementation delay, but thinks it will be implemented in early 2022, resulting in a global monetary reset to the gold standard. 
  Russia and China are well prepared, with substantial gold holdings (and more off-the-books). Most countries, as I was reading last year, are fairly prepared with proportional gold reserves, to fall into line with a global monetary regime reset back to gold. There will be a massive loss of "value" in speculative assets leveraged on the current debt-based-fiat monetary system. Large commercial banks get cut out in this deal. Credit unions and local retail-banking should likely be preserved.
  So, Basel III is coming to destroy the paper gold markets and destroy the money center banks in New York and London while setting the stage to bail out the euro-zone. Higher gold prices are the answer to all of these things. Think of it this way, in a world where debt assets are failing and new private forms of custodial assets are rising in mindshare, what’s the only real weapon the central banks have to maintain credibility?
Their gold reserves.

  How do you, if you are the ECB, use that weapon simultaneously against your two main competitors, the commercial banking interests in New York and London and the nascent crypto anarchists? You deploy your gold and steal everyone’s thunder.

  That reset-to-gold-standard is not quite the "tyranny" the "American elites" must use to maintain control, which the Disintegration analysis spoke of. 
Techno-tyranny is the preferred format, which is already in evidence. 
  We know that completely-electronic finance, with all users tracked in time and space by their smartphones, is working swell for the CCP in Chinese cities.
It's progressing well enough without the social-credit-score in western cities. 
Is that enough tyranny?  Where is the "insurance policy"?

  John Ward: COVID-19,What's The Big Idea?
The essential thrust is that most people want the necessities of life, a little fun, and protection from threats. 
The small group of humans controlling the current system very much want to maintain power for the foreseeable future, and only need a few of the people to serve them well towards that end. Most of the people are just using up limited resources without any benefit to the owners, which is not ecologically sustainable. COVID-19 is being used to direct people, and to induce them to change their ways. It's functionality as a social driver is being studied. It does seem to be reaching its limits after about a year and a half. It never completely took hold of the popular mentality as effectively as they might have hoped, either.
  (Christine Lagarde dropped a hint about near-term financial-reset, and John reproduced it here.)

I left this comment to his extensive post:
​  ​For your consideration, within the context of “Trust is good; control is better”.
Why such an overwhelming push for gene-therapy vaccines? Not just vaccines, but genetic insertion technologies?
I, a practicing (COVID-treating with oral antivirals) Physician, remain plagued by this lingering question.
I am not convinced that mundane greed is enough to explain this pervasive intensity of persuasive force to be “vaccinated”.
Lookee here… (What if you could insert a “back-door” in every human? What would you do with it?)
​  ​About Gene Drives
​  ​Gene drives are a gene-editing application that allows genetic engineers to drive a single artificial trait through an entire population by ensuring that all of an organism’s offspring carry that trait. For example, recent experiments are fitting mice with “daughterless” gene drives that will cascade through mouse populations so that only male pups are born, ensuring that the population becomes extinct after a few generations.
​  ​Proponents have framed gene drives as a breakthrough tool for eradicating pests or invasive species. However, the Gene Drive Files reveal that these “conservation” efforts are primarily supported by military funds.

This scientific article says that COVID-19 vaccine recipients are found to have spike protein circulating in their bloodstreams. Well, that's how it is supposed to work, so their immune systems can see it, mark it as foreign, learn how to destroy it, and remember how to destroy it, which is "immunity".
The problem is that the spike protein is a toxin all by itself... Thanks Germ.

Antibody-dependent "enhancement" (of viral pathogenicity) and SARS-CoV-2 vaccines and therapies  Vaccination CAN make illness worse. Thanks Germ.
  Data from the study of SARS-CoV and other respiratory viruses suggest that anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies could exacerbate COVID-19 through antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE). Previous respiratory syncytial virus and dengue virus vaccine studies revealed human clinical safety risks related to ADE, resulting in failed vaccine trials. Here, we describe key ADE mechanisms and discuss mitigation strategies for SARS-CoV-2 vaccines and therapies in development. 

Remember that less than 1% of adverse events get reported in the US, a broadly accepted estimate.
​  ​The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced they are investigating reports of heart issues in young patients who have received a Covid-19 vaccine.
​  ​There have been “relatively few” cases of young people developing heart symptoms following their inoculations, but the CDC is requesting that “information about this potential adverse event” be provided to clinicians to “enhance early recognition and appropriate management of persons who develop myocarditis symptoms.”
​  ​Myocarditis is an inflammation in the heart muscle. The few dozen cases so far have involved teenagers and young adults, mostly males, who have received either the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines.

​This young lady died the day before yesterday. 
Spike protein in her blood appears to have removed her ability to clot normally and stop bleeding. 
This is a recurring post-vaccination scenario. Thanks Germ.
  Stephanie Dubois, of Cypress, is a model with RMG Model Agency. She is currently hospitalized and in a coma after a brain hemorrhage. Her condition is said to be a reaction from the Covid Astra Zeneca vaccine. According to friends and family on social media, it is not likely that she will survive.

(Supposedly the Donald and Melania accepted the jab while he was still POTUS in January, even though he already had COVID.)
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced this weekend that he will not get vaccinated against COVID-19, explaining that he already contracted the virus last year and has “natural immunity.”

​This was the only time the government ever did this. It was all a big mistake, but everybody remains anonymous.​ Thanks unvaccinated/untracked Germ.
The UK government has admitted it used phone data to analyse people’s movement patterns without their knowledge as part of a vaccination study, a new report claims. Officials are said to have preserved the subjects’ anonymity.

​Cats out of the bag cannot be skinned? Uttar Pradesh has done pretty well with vitamin-D, ivermectin and doxycycline. Thanks Germ.
Villagers jump into river to avoid Covid-19 vaccination in Uttar Pradesh
The officials had a tough time persuading the villagers to come out of the river. 
Reports said that only 14 people could be vaccinated in the village, which has 1,500 residents. 
''It is due to lack of awareness...we will soon launch an awareness campaign in the village."

​This article says that children's immunologic B-cells are able to cross-over and fight SARS-CoV-2 rather well if they have just seen a couple of other coronaviruses already, which most have. Thanks Germ.
​  ​We evaluated pediatric and adult blood and deceased adult organ donor tissues to determine convergent antigen-specific antibody genes of similar sequences shared between individuals. B cell memory varied for different pathogens. Polysaccharide antigen–specific clones were not exclusive to the spleen. Adults had higher clone frequencies and greater class switching in lymphoid tissues than blood, while pediatric blood had abundant class-switched convergent clones. Consistent with reported serology, prepandemic children had class-switched convergent clones to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 with weak cross-reactivity to other coronaviruses, while adult blood or tissues showed few such clones. These results highlight the prominence of early childhood B cell clonal expansions and cross-reactivity for future responses to novel pathogens.

  The Drug That Cracked COVID ​ ( Ivermectin) 
The judge ruled that the hospital had to give Mom ivermectin. 
Mom got off the ventilator to tell her story. 
Thanks Germ.​
On the morning of December 18, 2020, as the newscaster announced a grim New York record for COVID-19 deaths and the weatherman predicted a white Christmas for Buffalo, Judy Smentkiewicz drove home from a house cleaning job, excited about the holiday. But her back hurt bad, and she was unusually exhausted. “I thought it was my age, being eighty years old, working every day,” she said. “I never thought about COVID.” Judy’s small house in Cheektowaga, just east of Bualo, was all set for Christmas. Daughter Michelle, who lives a few miles away and talks to her mother ve times a day, put up the tree and the decorations and the snowman on the front lawn of grandma’s house with her daughter until it looked like a scene from It’s a Wonderful Life. Son Michael came up from Florida with his wife Haley to help his sister cook the family Christmas Eve dinner, usually for twenty-ve, but now just immediate family with “COVID shaping everything,” Michael said. Michael, fty-seven, hasn’t lived in Bualo for close to thirty years, and relishes the trip home. But now he was worried. Mom was sleeping twelve hours a day. She couldn’t eat. She couldn’t lift the phone. “I’m ne, I’m just tired,” she kept saying. But Judy was always up with the sun. After raising two children as a single mother, working thirty-five years as an office manager for Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, she was still cleaning houses ve mornings a week with her girlfriends to “keep busy.” On December 22, three days before Christmas, Judy tested positive for COVID-19. “We were devastated,” Michael said. e family Christmas Eve dinner was cancelled, Judy spent Christmas in quarantine in her house, four days after Christmas she was taken by ambulance to Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital, and on New Year’s Eve Michael and Michelle got a call from the hospital that their mother was being admitted to the ICU. It all happened so fast. “We can’t be with her,” Michael said. “We can’t hold her hand, we can’t sleep in the room with her.” He started keeping notes to make sense of it all. “Hearing her voice crack on the phone as she agreed to go on the ventilator was HEART-BREAKING,” he wrote.

CDMX and IMSS clash with the federal government over the use of ivermectin
Despite the federal government rejecting its use, the CDMX government published a study that concludes that patients treated with ivermectin –which is regularly applied by the IMSS– reduce the risk of requiring hospitalization by up to 76%.

Impact of daily high dose oral vitamin D therapy on the inflammatory markers in patients with COVID 19 disease​ (​Vitamin-​D is good for COVID patients again)
​  ​Consented COVID-19 patients with hypovitaminosis D (low vitamin-D at initial test) ​were evaluated for inflammatory markers (N/L ratio, CRP, LDH, IL6, Ferritin) along with vitamin D on 0th day and 9th/11th day as per their respective BMI category. 
​  ​Subjects were randomised into VD and NVD groups. 
​  ​VD group received Pulse D therapy (targeted daily supplementation of 60,000 IUs of vitamin D for 8 or 10 days depending upon their BMI) in addition to the standard treatment. 
​  ​NVD group received standard treatment alone
Differences in the variables between the two groups were analysed for statistical significance. 
Eighty seven out of one hundred and thirty subjects have completed the study (VD:44, NVD:43). 
​  ​Vitamin D level has increased from 16 ± 6 ng/ml to 89 ± 32 ng/ml after Pulse D therapy in VD group and highly significant (p < 0.01) reduction of all the measured inflammatory markers was noted. 
​  ​Reduction of markers in NVD group was insignificant (p > 0.05). 
​  ​The difference in the reduction of markers between the groups (NVD vs VD) was highly significant (p < 0.01). 
Therapeutic improvement in vitamin D to 80–100 ng/ml has significantly reduced the inflammatory markers associated with COVID-19 without any side effects. 
Hence, adjunctive Pulse D therapy can be added safely to the existing treatment protocols of COVID-19 for improved outcomes.
