Sacrifice Your Children

 Sensible Parents,


Ilargi at The Automatic Earth leads with some clarifying facts. 
The kids are much safer without these shots, much safer on their own, as COVID-19 becomes endemic.
The Ethics of Child Vaccinations
​ If your chance of survival is 99.99996%, there is no risk. And you don’t need to be inoculated. That would -at best- be equivalent to keeping your kids home 24/7 because you are afraid of what might happen in traffic, or in social life with other kids, or some bogeyman. The risk is never zero, but close enough that we do not act on it, and call it common sense.
​  ​The arguments that are usually used are that 1) kids must be jabbed to protect others around them, and 2) that the vaccines have been tested and proven safe. Obviously, 1) is very curious, and never been used before, and 2) is simply a lie: vaccines need years of testing for side effects, not months, and certainly not weeks, as is now the case for the effects on children...
​  ​1,5 million adverse reactions, and those are just the ones that have been reported. Now, I don’t know how many people in Europe have been inoculated, but I bet you this is not a 99.99996% success story. The numbers of deaths are not, either.

The COVID Aesthetic. Thanks Jeremy.​
​  ​If the Covid experience is indeed an aesthetic experience, the impotence of our counter arguments, our practical concerns and our personal pains is certainly explained very well. Those we wish to convince to change their minds are not using their minds; those we wish to share our concerns do not have concerns; those we wish to feel our distress cannot see us or our distress: they are caught up in a kind of satisfaction – occasioned by the concerted responses of governments and populations to an invisible global attack – that is comprised of a heady sense of profound community, of fellow feeling on a universal scale. We cannot touch this experience with our facts and our projects and our pains. At the very most, we can only threaten to puncture its ecstasy; insofar as we do that, we are batted away as an inconvenient distraction.

​The dude has one refuge left, "patriotism"​.
Fauci blasted for ‘dangerous arrogance’ as he compares criticism of him to ‘attacks on science’

​This is the bigger Spanish calcifediol (active vitamin-D) study. Same results as the smaller one last year with 76 patients.
Conclusions
In patients hospitalized with COVID-19, calcifediol treatment significantly reduced ICU admission and mortality.

Some people ​(where do they get their information?) ​grudgingly acknowledge that having had COVID "might be almost as good as vaccination".
The immune systems of more than 95% of people who recovered from COVID-19 had durable memories of the virus up to eight months after infection.
The results provide ​HOPE​ that people receiving SARS-CoV-2 vaccines will develop similar lasting immune memories after vaccination.

​So only about half got stolen and sent out of the country?
​  As much as half of the unemployment benefits paid by the US government over the past year may have been stolen through fraud, with the bulk ultimately ending up outside the country - likely into the hands of foreign crime syndicates in China, Nigeria, Russia and elsewhere, according to Axios' Felix Salmon.
  According to some estimates, unemployment fraud during the pandemic could 'easily reach $400 billion,' as states weren't prepared for the unprecedented wave of unemployment claims.

​Russians are laughing.
 US President Joe Biden said on Wednesday that he aims to make clear to Russia and China that the United States, the European Union, and the G7 are united in their position and will act.
"Strengthening the alliance, make it clear to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and to China that Europe and the United States are tight, and the G7 is going to move," Biden told reporters answering a question about the goal of his trip to Europe.

Who might have more to lose with a financial-system hack-attack, leading to breakdown, and blamed on "Russian state hackers"? We may soon see.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken in an appearance on "Axios on HBO" previewed what he expects to come out of the Putin-Biden summit set for June 16 in Geneva. The short answer is: not much except for vague warnings and threats, it appears. Blinken said during the interview that the US president intends to warn Putin "directly and clearly what he can expect from the United States if aggressive, reckless actions toward us continue."

​It's not just Dr Seuss that's "racist". Can we eat sweet potatoes and black-eyed peas, or not?
​  ​The article, titled ‘Food injustice has deep roots: let’s start with America’s apple pie’, was published in May but is still raising eyebrows over the author’s reflections on the history of colonialism and slavery enshrined in the dessert’s recipe and its sugary crust.
​  ​“Apples travelled to the Western hemisphere with colonists in the 1500s in what used to be called the Columbian Exchange, but is now better understood as a vast and ongoing genocide of Indigenous people,” Patel writes.

Going Viral

 Future's So Bright,


  Parallels are being drawn between Cyber Polygon https://www.weforum.org/projects/cyber-polygon  "warning" of viral cyber attack on international digital finance with "COVID-19 characteristics", and Event 201 in October 2019. Event 201 warned of a global novel coronavirus pandemic threat, which may have leaked out in June of that year.  https://www.johndayblog.com/2021/06/fort-detrick.html 
​ 
​  ​It looks like SARS-CoV-2 virus was already on the loose in the US, Wuhan-Games, France and Italy (at least) by the time Event 201 was held, so if one assumes similar staging, then the fall of the dollar-denominated-western-empire is already underway.
I’m not saying you should not hold some cash. I think you should, and should have good relations with the places where you get your needs met and contribute to the needs of others, and ride a bike, and grow vegetables.
You already know my approach.

​  ​Supporting evidence is that (patient, prudent) Russians are now openly scorning the puppet-leaders of the western empire, and frontally attacking the dollar, while giving openings for negotiated settlements, at the same time.
​  ​Russian authorities are planning to shift the nation’s currency liquidity from the US dollar to the euro, the country’s Finance Ministry announced on Monday.
“Our number one goal is to turn Russia into a euro-oriented country, thus to replace the dollar with the euro,” said Dmitry Timofeev, head of the department of external restrictive measures control at the Russian Finance Ministry.​  ​
https://www.rt.com/business/525902-russia-dumps-dollar-for-euro/

​  ​Look at the elegance, please.
The ​Atlantacists (US/UK/etc.) have​ strained to keep EU and Russia separated since the collapse of the USSR.
First, the EU was going to share in the pillage and plunder, and it did, but when Russia reasserted autonomy under Putin, the pillage tapered to residuals on debt.
Lately, the US has been straining mightily to keep the (energy-buying) EU separated from next door energy exporting Russia, which is just not possible, if Germany is to maintain production and pricing, and Europeans of modest means are to survive the winters.
​  ​The last decade of wars has been fought, at least partly, to control the oil and gas flows to industrial Europe. Blocking Iranian oil/gas and Russian gas/oil, while substituting other sources, controlled by the US military, has failed, despite massive injuries to Iraq, Syria, Iran and Ukraine.​ The US is clearly losing dominance.​

​  ​Flipping those tables, Russia positions to destroy the petro-$ by ceasing dollar trade of oil. Russia would really like to use the Euro, and basically join the EU in some way, splitting Europe from NATO military diktats, and forming a much more powerful European alliance, based on local geography and meeting of local needs, while North America does whatever, grows corn, rebuilds infrastructure, beats swords into plowshares…

​  ​Just imagine the flip from petro-buck to petro-Euro, Eurasian integration in an augenblick (blink of eye). The Russian Central Bank​ ​​already​ took part in Cyber-Polygon ​(massive hacking attack on central banking WEF wargame) ​last summer. ​Russian finance​ clearly under threat from the west. They kept muddling through, and making all those inferior Russian products, and getting some stuff from China, and now they are not apparently threatened at all by elimination from dollar-denominated trade, so the dollar must be threatened as global reserve currency, so yes, hold more as cash. (Yes, ​crazy-world.)

​Biden (his handlers) really have a lot of patching-up to do with relations in Europe, not even considering Rusia, as power relations must become more even-handed.
  President Joe Biden and his European Union counterparts will commit to ending outstanding trade battles next week at an EU-US summit in Brussels on June 15, as globalists eager to get back to 'business as usual' seek to unravel tariffs related to a steel and aluminum conflict which came to a head under the Trump administration - contributing to over $18 billion in US and EU exports subject to steep levies.
  According to Bloomberg, which has seen a draft of the conclusions, the allies will agree to resolve disagreements - including a nearly two-decade old aircraft dispute which involves illegal government aid provided to Airbus and Boeing - before July 11. In advance of the agreement, US and EU leaders have agreed to suspend aircraft tariffs until July ahead of the pending settlement.

​  ​Charles Hugh Smith sent this claptrap from the Fed https://www.federalreserve.gov/econres/notes/feds-notes/preconditions-for-a-general-purpose-central-bank-digital-currency-20210224.htm​  ​,about what the essential requirements for a central bank digital currency for the US would be and who would have to sign on. Notice that the real-stakeholders, the Buffet-Bezos-Gates-Soros crowd are not on the list. It’s a lie. It sounds like they don’t have it worked out yet, but smaller banks (than the Fed) will sort of get cut out to keep the central banks in bidness.
One point​ it makes​ is that Federal Reserve Notes are a central bank liability, whereas other things are not. Holding FRNs gives one a bit more autonomy, makes one a little more like a real person, a central bank. That doesn’t go very far, but people are in the habit (supremely important) of accepting FRNs as “cash”; don’t have to give it a second thought. Some of us remember stagflation, but it all happened in $US for Americans. It’ll happen again.
Now is a bad time to buy lumber. It’s 4 times usual $ price. maybe it’ll be half that next year. Probably one should be counter-trending with $US, and not be time pressured if it can be avoided. Chinese window-unit air conditioners still seem to be cheap, even the better ones. We got the last one at the medium price at the Yoakum grocery store yesterday. It works fine. ​It needs electricity.
We got the kitchen floor repaired and I spent about 10 hours in the humidity gardening and pushing a good-little-Honda mower.​ 
We just keep plugging away, even when we can't really keep up with things. 
Accomplishments come as sudden surprises, but they come sometimes.​

Like Charles Hugh Smith has said, “work on plan-C”.
I was mulling this over while I pushed the mower. Plan to have options and recourse in scenario-C, a scenario of ​Great Depression​ type collapse/reset. 
Maybe all the ​study, thought​, vegetable gardening and communicating with other prepper​s​ will be good for us.
​(​Be on good terms with God and Man…​)

​  ​One thing that is increasingly important for me is to have a working understanding of what we need as a baseline to survive and to thrive, so that I can be of assistance and offer counsel, advice and a demo, if called upon some day.​ This is not so grand. One cannot understand vegetable gardening through the seasons in the abstract, without some years and seasons of necessary improvisation and adaptation.​ Maybe I won't be called upon, so I'll just have a good food producing homestead. It's a nice thing. People do admire the project as it is progressing in fits and starts. There is a human archetype around keeping a productive and healthy vegetable garden and or orchard. There is natural resonance within people.

How America went from Mom-and-Pop Capitalism to Techno-Feudalism (so what's next?)
​  ​On the economic front,  global lockdowns eliminated competition from small and medium-sized businesses, allowing monopolies and oligopolies to grow. “The biggest loser from all this is the middle class,” wrote Logan Kane on Seeking Alpha. By May 2020, about one in four Americans had filed for unemployment, with over 40 million Americans filing jobless claims; and 200,000 more businesses closed in 2020 than the historical annual average. Meanwhile, US billionaires collectively increased their total net worth by $1.1 trillion during the last 10 months of 2020; and 46 people joined the billionaire class.

​Michael Snyder observes:​  (Cars don't actually need computer chips. Remember the Pinto? America could make its own Yugos, little trucks and vans.)
​  ​Many of the imbalances that are contributing to the nightmarish shortages that we are currently witnessing are not going to be solved any time soon.  Ever since I started The Economic Collapse Blog, I have been warning that outsourcing the production of just about everything and running massive trade deficits year after year would eventually have very serious consequences down the road.  Well, now we are officially “down the road”, and our incredibly foolish trade policies have put us in a very precarious position.  During the “good times”, being extremely dependent on the rest of the world to make stuff for us wasn’t a problem, but now it is rapidly becoming a national security issue.
​  ​For example, without a steady flow of computer chips, our society as it is formulated today simply could not function.  We need computer chips for our vehicles, for the trucks that transport all of our goods, for the farm equipment that produces our food, for the extremely sophisticated equipment in our hospitals and for the millions upon millions of electronic devices that connect to the Internet.
​  ​The global chip shortage has been a very painful reminder of how exceedingly dependent we have become on technology, and it has also shown us how unwise it was to outsource production of most of our chips to Asia.
​  ​Back in 1990, the United States produced 37 percent of all computer chips in the world.
Today, that number has fallen to just 12 percent.

WHO Celebrates as Indian Health Regulator removes Ivermectin from it's COVID-19 Protocol​  
After India finally gets somewhat of a grip on its deadly second wave, one of its health regulators just took away one of its main lines of defense.
​  ​India’s Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) has executed a policy reversal that could have massive implications for the battle against covid-19, not only in India but around the world. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives, are at providing stake. Providing no explanation whatsoever, the DGHS has overhauled its COVID-19 treatment guidelines and removed almost all of the repurposed medicines it had previously recommended for treating asymptomatic and mild cases. They include the antibiotic doxycycline, hydroxychloroquine zinc, ivermectin and even multivitamins. The only medicines that are still recommended for early treatment are cold medicines, antipyretics such as paracetamol and inhaled budesonide.
​  ​“No other covid-specific medication [is] required,” say the new guidelines, which also discourage practitioners from prescribing unnecessary tests such as CT scans.

"It was China what done it" (All the bioweapons labs were playing with the same coronavirus strains and gain-of-function mix-and-match special-features.​)​
​  ​EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak – who collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology on research funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease – appears to boast about the manipulation of “killer” SARS-like coronaviruses carried out by his “colleagues in China” in a clip unearthed by The National Pulse.
​  ​Daszak made the admission at a 2016 forum discussing “emerging infectious diseases and the next pandemic,” which appears to be at odds with Fauci’s repeated denial of funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology

​From The Conservative Woman: Serious considerations for parents. Group approval or protect your children?
​  We do know that the vaccines produce a range of cardiovascular and neurological events including strokes, myocarditis, pericarditis and paralysis in a significant number of people. In the small US state of Connecticut at least 18 children and young adults have come down with myocarditis, an extremely serious and sometimes fatal condition involving inflammation of the heart muscle (and they’ve only just started vaccinating children there). The Israel Ministry of Health has reported that the incidence of myocarditis for vaccine recipients is between 1 in 3,000 and 1 in 6,000 in young men.
  In Canada (population 38 million) only 11 children have died from Covid since the start of the pandemic. In the UK (pop 68 million) 32 children have died. It is nearly certain that all of them had one or more severe comorbidities. The fact is, most children brush off Covid without even knowing they’ve had it. For all intents and purposes, Covid poses zero risk to healthy children.
  It is clear that for children the risk of death or injury from the vaccine is at least an order of magnitude greater than the risk of death or injury from the virus. So since herd immunity or zero Covid is clearly an impossible goal, why in God’s name are we subjecting our children to the risk of death or life-changing injury? I’ll tell you why: Because this really isn’t about health at all. It’s being driven mostly by two things: the profit motives of Big Pharma and Big Tech, and a cult-like religious movement in which masking and vaccinations are the sacraments by which one demonstrates their virtue.

​Peter McCullough MD discusses the deaths from vaccination, adverse events, and why he can no longer recommend any of the current COVID-19 vaccination products to his patients. He sees the push to get-a-needle-in-every-arm, whether recovered from COVID-19 already, or not. Why? ​ Watch the first 4 minutes.

Under 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported in the USA, for reasons Dr. McCullough explains, and I confirm.
Latest VAERS Data Show: 5,165 Deaths Reported Following COVID Vaccines
VAERS data released today showed 294,801 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines, including 5,165 deaths and 25,359 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020 and May 28, 2021.
https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/vaers-data-deaths-reported-following-covid-vaccines/

There has been clear evidence of numerous laboratory manipulations of the SARS-CoV-2 genome since late February 2020. Here is that wheel partly rediscovered.
​  ​The two pieces of evidence led Quay and Muller to conclude that the possibility that COVID-19 was engineered should be viewed as the leading theory.
​  ​“The presence of the double CGG sequence is strong evidence of gene splicing, and the absence of diversity in the public outbreak suggests gain-of-function acceleration,” they wrote. “The scientific evidence points to the conclusion that the virus was developed in a laboratory.”


​"Vaccine Reluctant" are unlikely to want COVID vaccines going forward. (Yeah, that's me, for sure!)
​  As of the May 18-23 survey, 60% of U.S. adults report they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, 4% have been partially vaccinated, 12% plan to be vaccinated and 24% do not plan to be vaccinated.
  Among those not planning to be vaccinated, 78% say they are unlikely to reconsider their plans, including 51% who say they are "not likely at all" to change their mind and get vaccinated. That leaves one in five vaccine-reluctant adults open to reconsidering, with 2% saying they are very likely and 19% saying they are somewhat likely to change their mind and get vaccinated -- equivalent to 5% of all U.S. adults.


​  ​Scientists from the Cleveland Clinic, USA, have recently evaluated the effectiveness of coronavirus disease 2019 COVID-19) vaccination among individuals with or without a history of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection.
​  ​The study findings reveal that individuals with previous SARS-CoV-2 infection do not get additional benefits from vaccination
, indicating that COVID-19 vaccines should be prioritized to individuals without prior infection. The study is currently available on the medRxiv* preprint server.

​One month after "vaccination" most of this guy's body​ tested positive for spike protein (not nucleocapsid, so not whole-virus). 
He did not appear to have COVID-19, just multi organ failure with positive spike-protein-sensing  tests on most of his corpse. 
They soft pedal this to say that vaccination didn't fully protect him. 
Obviously, that mRNA did not degrade, and kept pumping spike protein into his blood, and killed his poor organs.

  First case of postmortem study in a patient vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2  
  A previously symptomless 86-year-old man received the first dose of the BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. He died 4 weeks later from acute renal and respiratory failure. Although he did not present with any COVID-19-specific symptoms, he tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 before he died. Spike protein (S1) antigen-binding showed significant levels for immunoglobulin (Ig) G, while nucleocapsid IgG/IgM was not elicited. Acute bronchopneumonia and tubular failure were assigned as the cause of death at autopsy; however, we did not observe any characteristic morphological features of COVID-19. Postmortem molecular mapping by real-time polymerase chain reaction revealed relevant SARS-CoV-2 cycle threshold values in all organs examined (oropharynx, olfactory mucosa, trachea, lungs, heart, kidney and cerebrum) except for the liver and olfactory bulb. These results might suggest that the first vaccination induces immunogenicity but not sterile immunity. 

mRNA "vaccines" are your-entire-future, not just in-your-future. 
Your genes are our playground forever!
Don't Miss Out!
Don't worry; Nothing Bad Can Happen!

 Gamers With Skin,


U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa announced that American B-52H Stratofortress strategic bombers accompanied by military aircraft from twenty-one other NATO nations flew over all 30 NATO member states today. Those would include the five that border Russia – Norway, Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – of course.

WHY DANIEL ELLSBERG WANTS THE U.S. TO PROSECUTE HIM UNDER THE ESPIONAGE ACT
Ellsberg explains why he hopes the courts take on the law used to crack down on whistleblowers.

  “The whole idea is to kill the bastards,” Gen. Thomas Power, commander of America’s nuclear forces from 1957 to 1963, once said about the use of atomic weapons. “At the end of the war, if there are two Americans and one Russian, we win.” The hold this nuclear lunacy had on the top of the U.S. government is terrifyingly illuminated in a top-secret study of U.S. war plans newly publicized by famed whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg. The document, produced by the RAND Corporation and copied by Ellsberg at the same time he exfiltrated the Pentagon Papers from RAND, examines the U.S. response to the 1958 Taiwan Strait Crisis.   The study’s contents were first reported on May 22 by the New York Times.
  The crisis, now completely forgotten, began when China attempted to seize several small islands off its coast from Taiwan. The study shows American generals enthusiastically planning for the use of nuclear weapons against China. It is not simply that the officials looked with equanimity on the possibility of killing millions; rather, many seemed frustrated that there were any delays forced upon them by the rest of the government...   
“You shouldn’t be confident that the current calculations are any less crazy,” Ellsberg said. His apprehension about the potential use of nuclear weapons is intimately linked to another of his key concerns: the Justice Department’s accelerating use of the 1917 Espionage Act to prosecute leakers.​                                          ​https://theintercept.com/2021/06/01/daniel-ellsberg-china-atomic-nuclear-weapons/

"Expect the Unexpected" Indeed - Fauci's Pandemic-Profiteering Book Was Just Pulled From Amazon, Barnes & Noble

Global Preparedness Monitoring Board produced this 50 page report and released it in September 2019 (Knew about Ft. Detrick already?)​ Thanks Doc Robinson.
  Countries, donors and multilateral institutions must be prepared for the worst. A rapidly spreading pandemic due to a lethal respiratory pathogen (whether naturally emergent or accidentally or deliberately released) poses additional preparedness requirements. Donors and multilateral institutions must ensure adequate investment in developing innovative vaccines and therapeutics, surge manufacturing capacity, broad-spectrum antivirals and appropriate non-pharmaceutical interventions. All countries must develop a system for immediately sharing genome sequences of any new pathogen for public health purposes along with the means to share limited medical countermeasures across countries.  

​  ​New research shows that the coronavirus spike protein from COVID-19 vaccination unexpectedly enters the bloodstream, which is a plausible explanation for thousands of reported side-effects from blood clots and heart disease to brain damage and reproductive issues, a Canadian cancer vaccine researcher said last week.
​  ​“We made a big mistake. We didn’t realize it until now,” said Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist and associate professor at University of Guelph, Ontario, in an interview with Alex Pierson last Thursday, in which he warned listeners that his message was “scary.”
​  ​“We thought the spike protein was a great target antigen, we never knew the spike protein itself was a toxin and was a pathogenic protein. So by vaccinating people we are inadvertently inoculating them with a toxin,” Bridle said on the show, which is not easily found in a Google search but went viral on the internet this weekend.
​  ​Bridle, a vaccine researcher who was awarded a $230,000 government grant last year for research on COVID vaccine development, said that he and a group of international scientists filed a request for information from the Japanese regulatory agency to get access to what’s called the “biodistribution study.”
​  ​“It’s the first time ever scientists have been privy to seeing where these messenger RNA [mRNA] vaccines go after vaccination,” said Bridle. “Is it a safe assumption that it stays in the shoulder muscle? The short answer is: absolutely not. It’s very disconcerting.”
​  ​Vaccine researchers had assumed that novel mRNA COVID vaccines would behave like “traditional” vaccines and the vaccine spike protein — responsible for infection and its most severe symptoms — would remain mostly in the vaccination site at the shoulder muscle. Instead, the Japanese data showed that the infamous spike protein of the coronavirus gets into the blood where it circulates for several days post-vaccination and then accumulated in organs and tissues including the spleen, bone marrow, the liver, adrenal glands, and in “quite high concentrations” in the ovaries.
​  ​“We have known for a long time that the spike protein is a pathogenic protein. It is a toxin. It can cause damage in our body if it gets into circulation,” Bridle said.

​  ​Chinese researchers have achieved a new world record after scientists developing an “artificial sun” ran the device on Friday at a record-shattering temperature of 120 million degrees Celsius for over 100 seconds.
​  ​The experiment was held at the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (ASIPP) in Hefei, China.
The exercise is a part of the China’s efforts to develop new clean energy sources through the development of next-generation nuclear fusion reactor technology.
​  ​Known as the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST), the “Chinese artificial sun” managed to generate plasma temperatures of 120 million degrees Celsius for 101 seconds before scientists also realized a temperature of 160 million degrees Celsius for an additional 20 seconds.
​​T​​he goal of EAST is to create Sun-like energy using deuterium, a hydrogen isotope that is plentiful in the ocean and can provide a steady flow of clean energy.

Fort Detrick

 Weighing Evidence,


  The military lab SARS-CoV-2 virus, subsequently mutated into variants (some of these could well be off-the-shelf from somewhere) came from military research that was carried out at multiple labs across the world, certainly in the US, Canada and China.
  The bat-to-pangolins-to-people hypothesis could never be supported, so the world of curious people has had to conclude that this is a lab virus.
Maybe it was just an attempt to make really good vaccines against a not-yet-existent-threat. 
Maybe...

  Truthful-Tony Fauci is currently taking sort of a hit for the team in the media, but this looks like a mild, limited hangout, and will never go to court.
Do look at the specific RNA sequence findings. They do specific things. They were inserted as functional units, not randomly.
In January, 2020, when the World Health Organization insisted that COVID-19 wasn't transmissible between humans, and Dr. Anthony Fauci said that the risk to the American public from the virus was "low," officials at the National Institutes of Health were scrambling to perform damage control after a controversial - and now withdrawn - study suggested that there were HIV-like 'insertions' included in SARS-CoV-2.

  The US Government fallback position is that this virus leaked out of Wuhan's lab to start this pandemic.
It might have done just that. Maybe not. 
Maybe the virus got out elsewhere. The Chinese think so.

First, some context.  Daniel Elsberg held this card a long time. (I Like Ike!)
Eisenhower rejected military chiefs’ demand for nuclear war on China, classified account of ’58 Taiwan Strait crisis reveals
​  ​Fearing a new conflict over Taiwan, Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg has released a shocking account showing how the Joint Chiefs pressed Eisenhower to launch a nuclear war on China.
​  ​A​ ​previously censored account of the 1958 Taiwan Strait crisis that was sponsored by the Pentagon has been published in full by the leaker of the Pentagon Papers, Daniel Ellsberg. The report provides a hair-raising portrait of a reckless US military leadership relentlessly pressing President Dwight Eisenhower for the authority to carry out nuclear attacks on communist China.
​  ​After holding the still-classified version of the account in his possession for fifty years, Ellsberg said he decided to release it because of the growing threat of US war with China over Taiwan, and the danger that such a conflict could escalate into a nuclear exchange.

‘Fort Detrick base is full of suspicions’: China asks US for explanation of 2019 respiratory disease after Biden’s new Covid probe
​  ​The spokesman said that there was an unexplained respiratory disease in northern Virginia in July 2019 and a large-scale outbreak of e-cigarette disease in Wisconsin. “When will the US release detailed data and information on relevant cases to the international community? The United States owes an explanation to the international community.”

WUHAN’S OUTBREAK: CHINA DEMANDS AN HONEST ACCOUNTING
The following content is circulating in Chinese cyberspace.
Looks like China is finally in counterattack mode against relentless US efforts to blame it for the global COVID epidemic.
Key points:
• It is now virtually certain that COVID-19 was brought to Wuhan by American troops taking part in the city’s World Military Games last Oct. 18-27.
• The 300-st​r​ong US contingent stayed at the Wuhan Oriental Hotel. It is located a mere 300 meters from the Huanan Seafood Market, where China’s outbreak began (see map below).
• Five of the US troopers developed a fever on Oct. 25 and were taken to an infectious-diseases hospital for treatment.
• 42 employees of the Oriental Hotel were diagnosed with COVID-19, becoming the first cluster in Wuhan. At the time only 7 people from the market were thus diagnosed, though they were treated first. All 7 had contact with the 42 from the hotel. From this source, the virus spread to the rest of China.
• Back in the US, the American team had trained at a location near Fort Detrick, the military’s viral lab closed down in July for various deficiencies.
The big question now is whether the transmission was planned, or accidental. Chinese authorities are awaiting an explanation from US authorities.


​By April 2020, it was clear from viral sequencing that it could not have occurred naturally, just could not have.
Dr. Luc Montagnier discovered that HTLV-3 causes AIDS and got a Nobel Prize in 2008.
​  ​Referring to a study published at the Kusama School of Biology in New Dehli on January 31st, Montagnier (the 2008 Nobel Prize winner for his 1983 discovery of the HIV virus) made the point that the specific occurrence of HIV RNA viral segments spliced surgically within the COVID-19 genome could not have originated naturally and he described it in the following words:
​  ​“We have carefully analyzed the description of the genome of this RNA virus. We weren’t the first, a group of Indian researchers tried to publish a study showing that the complete genome of this virus that has within the sequences of another virus: that of HIV.”
​  ​While the Indian team was induced to retract their publication under immense pressure from the mainstream medical establishment (which never bothered to seriously refute the content of the study’s research but rather used the “random-mutation-makes-anything-possible” argument), Montagnier stated “scientific truth always emerges”.​..

​By May 17, 2020 I posted this in Answers   https://www.johndayblog.com/2020/05/answers.html
 ​The first signs that something terrible had gone wrong with the security at the Fort Detrick bio-defence facility fifty miles north-west of Washington DC were when cases of a previously unknown and serious respiratory illness appeared at a retirement village on the western outskirts of the capital in July 2019.  The first cases were noted on June 30th amongst the 260 residents of the Greenspring Assisted Living unit, with the infectious disease later affecting 19 staff and taking the lives of some older residents...
​  ​I propose that the scheme devised in desperation last summer for this “diversionary tactic”, was to send the Fort Detrick Virus with the soldiers set to compete at the Wuhan games in three months’ time, while trying to keep a lid on the domestic epidemic until the new year, and a lock on the inquisitive media. Rehearsing for the subsequent global pandemic called for “Event 201” to prepare participants for what they might have to face, and bring their organizational and media responses into line...
 ​  ​Whether this theory is the correct one may not yet be proven, but it does provide an explanation to the conundrum of the genie that was accidentally released from the bottle but intentionally released from Wuhan. And we must all now suffer the consequences of that US “culpable manslaughter” as we learn to live with their engineered Genie.


Shortly after that, Origins Of Covid  https://www.johndayblog.com/2020/05/origins-of-covid.html  post contained this:​
  ​On December 9, 2019, long before the world knew anything about it, a video interview took place with one of the key players in the COVID-19 drama, Dr Peter Daszak, President of the EcoHealth Alliance, who inadvertently may have provided indications of its true origin.
​  ​Much of that discussion centred around the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS) epidemic of 2002-2004, which was believed to have originated in bats, although civets may have acted as an intermediate host.
​  ​While circulating in animals, the SARS virus mutated, acquiring the ability to infect humans, which it was assumed to have done so, infecting workers in a Guangdong, China animal market.
​  ​That explanation became the narrative now being promoted by the Chinese Communist Party, the media and some Western scientists to convince the world that COVID-19 was a naturally-occurring outbreak.
​  ​Beginning at 27:49, Dr Daszak explains the basis of the naturally-occurring narrative and the collection of over one hundred bat coronaviruses capable of infecting humans, but untreatable with drugs or vaccines. Those coronaviruses are presumed to be stored in Chinese laboratories.
​  ​“So, we did a couple of things with it. So, one is around SARS. We focused on SARS coronavirus emerged from a wildlife market. And whilst the first pandemic of this century. So, it’s big event. And, so we started to trace back from the wildlife market, which species carried the virus, that came into those markets. We found that it was bats, not civets, was the original idea. So, we started looking where did they come from. And we went out to southern China. And did surveillance of bats across southern China. And we’ve now found, after six or seven years of doing this, over one hundred new SARS-related coronaviruses, very close to SARS. Some of them get into human cells in the lab. And some of them can cause SARS disease in humanized mouse models. And are untreatable with therapeutic monoclonals [antibodies] and you can’t vaccinate against them with a vaccine.”
​  ​At 29:51, Dr Daszak describes bioengineering of those viruses by inserting components of one coronavirus into another.
​  ​“Well, I think, coronavirus is a pretty good, I mean, you’re a virologist [the interviewer], you know all this stuff, but the, you can manipulate them in the lab pretty easilySpike protein drives a lot of what happens with the coronavirus, zoonotic risk. So, you can get the sequence, you can build the protein, and we work with Ralph Baric at UNC [University of North Carolina] to do this. Insert it into a backbone of another virus, and do some work in the lab. So, you can get more predictive, when you find the sequence. You have this diversity. Now, the logical progression for vaccines is, if you are going to develop a vaccine for SARS, people are going to use pandemic SARS, but let’s try to insert these other related and get a better vaccine.”
​  ​In 2015, Ralph Baric from the University of North Carolina and Zheng-Li Shi, the “bat woman” from the Wuhan Institute of Virology jointly published a scientific article describing the combination of the receptor-binding spike protein from a newly isolated coronavirus (SHC014) and the “backbone” from SARS-CoV, the coronavirus responsible for the 2002-2003 pandemic.
​  ​That experiment produced a novel virus, chimera SHC014-MA15, which showed “robust viral replication both in vitro [cell cultures] and in vivo [animals],” using models adapted to test human infectivity.
​  ​The scientific consensus claims that COVID-19, like SARS, originated in bats.
​  ​There is conclusive scientific evidence, however, that COVID-19’s receptor binding domain within the spike protein is structurally closest to that of pangolins (scaly anteaters), not bats, and it was the result of a recombination, not convergent evolution.
Yet, pangolins have been ruled out as the intermediate host for COVID-19.
​  ​Even Dr Ralph Baric in a March 15, 2020 interview, beginning at the 27:40 time point, stated unequivocally, that pangolins were not the source of COVID-19:
​  ​“Pangolins have over 3,000 nucleotide changes - no way they are the reservoir species [for COVID-19], absolutely no chance.”
​  ​It is, therefore, logical to conclude that the recombinant event resulting in a pangolin receptor binding domain within a bat coronavirus backbone must have occurred in a laboratory, in a manner similar to the experiment conducted by Ralph Baric and Zheng-Li Shi in 2015.
​  ​Furthermore, COVID-19’s S1/S2 furin polybasic cleavage site, a distinctive feature widely known for its ability to enhance pathogenicity and transmissibility in coronaviruses, does not appear in any of 45 bat, 5 human SARS, 2 civet, 1 pangolin and 1 racoon dog coronaviruses, that have S1/S2 junction structures otherwise identical or nearly identical to COVID-19.
​  ​There is no credible scientific evidence that the furin polybasic cleavage site evolved naturally, although the methods for artificially inserting such cleavage sites are well-established.

FromDecember 2020:
COVID-19 Un-Explained, Larry Romanoff​  
  Mr Romanoff has been doing hard and persistent investigative reporting on this virus all year. He opens with an analysis of the waves of infection which is not informed by vitamin-D levels at various times of year, or by the different seasonal patterns of spread typical for areas like Northern Eurasia and Northern North America, as compared to tropical spread patterns, typified in Texas and Peru, for instance. Otherwise his extensive and detailed research and analysis is first rate, especially regarding the origin of the virus, which may well have been Ft Detrick Maryland, the super-spreading event at the Wuhan Games, official cover-ups by national governments, especially the US. No search for "patient zero" in the US, and all information about tests for coronavirus on frozen blood and sewage from 2019 in the US are state secrets, reportable only to the feds, not the newspapers or local authorities. That was Mike Pompeo's doing, it seems.
Oh, and just like the tetanus vaccine that immunized girls against pregnancy, the COVID vaccines may induce antibody production against a protein called syncytin-1, which is vital for the formation of the placenta in pregnant women.

I have been prescribing ivermectin since last August, and blogged about it even before that. Karl Denninger has this analysis.
  On 12/7/2020 I put forward that we had scientific evidence on how to slam the door on Covid-19’s transmission. We knew in October from the study I cited that there was a simple and near-zero cost way to do it. In mid-October the death count in the US stood at about 200,000. We did nothing. Why did we do nothing? Because if we admitted to the existence of this study, which was registered formally on the government’s clinical trial site, and followed what it told us to do, there would be no EUAs for vaccines. They would have been illegal. The FDA knew this, the NIH knew this and the CDC knew this since the trial database in question is run by the US Government. All three were fully-aware that there was a cheap, easy and immediate way to slam the door on transmission of Covid-19 and had been tested in a health-care setting – that is, where people are around folks who are known infectious all the time...
  Offering Ivermectin to all who tested positive and everyone in their household would have slammed the door instantly on forward transmission and ended the pandemic in the United States before the winter surge occurred. We now know this at a scientific level of certainty. [..] We killed 300,000 Americans for the express purpose of getting EUAs issued for vaccines. Leaving aside whether the vaccines are safe, and giving them full credit for being effective the fact still remains that our government and health care system killed 300,000 people by refusing to follow the science, that refusal was intentional and undertaken for financial reasons, and as a direct result a genocide-level manslaughter took place.

More from Karl Denninger:
  The peak here in this county for cases was in fact on the 14th of December. A literal zero persons had been vaccinated before that day; the case rate was collapsing by the end of the month, down by more than 50% over those two weeks, yet not a single person was immune by virtue of vaccination on January 1st 2021. Not one. What’s the truth about epidemics like this — respiratory viruses — all through history?
  Never has one been trouble in any material size for more than a handful of years – like two, occasionally with a “gap” in the middle. All are characterized by two waves or less, the second frequently more-severe. 1889-92, which looks to have been HCoV-OC43 (unproved), also a coronavirus, was two waves. 1918 was two waves. The 1957 pandemic was two waves, both roughly equally severe. 2009 H1N1 was two waves but, contrary to expectations, was mild. There is no evidence — zero — for any of the ten for which reasonably-contemporary records exist showing any deviation from this pattern. Every single one for which such records exist has burned itself out within two years and/or two phases or waves. Repeat: Covid-19 was over in the United States in December before the first stab went into the first arm. The first wave was in early 2020 and the second came in the winter which peaked before anyone could be vaccinated.

This story is from August 2008.  Flu survivors still immune after 90 years  Thanks Jeremy
  They say that memory declines as age marches on, but that only applies to neurons – the immune system has a very different sort of memory and it stays fresh till the end of life. To this day, people who survived the 1918 flu pandemic carry antibodies that can remember and neutralise the murderous strain.

REPORT: COVID-19 Antibodies May Last a Lifetime
Researchers have identified long-lasting cells, which produce antibodies, in the bone marrow of people who have recovered from the virus, per Nature.
The study provides evidence that immunity will last longer than once thought...
Antibodies are the key to immune defense, as they essentially serve as a block for the virus. After a new infection, short-lived cells – called plasmablasts – are an early source of antibodies. But, they disappear soon after the body fights off the virus, and other longer-lasting cells make the antibodies.
“A plasma cell is our life history, in terms of the pathogens we’ve been exposed to,” Ali Ellebedy, an immunologist at Washington University in St. Louis who led the study, said.

117 Employees File Lawsuit Against Texas Hospital for Requiring COVID-19 Vaccine
  “Methodist Hospital is forcing its employees to be human ‘guinea pigs’ as a condition for continued employment,” their lawsuit (pdf) states. Adding that that the hospital’s COVID-19 vaccination mandate “requires the employee to subject themselves to medical experimentation as a prerequisite to feeding their families,” the employees wrote that they took issue receiving “experimental COVID-19 mRNA” vaccines, such as ones made by Pfizer and Moderna.
  “For the first time in the history of the United States, an employer is forcing an employee to participate in an experimental vaccine trial as a condition for continued employment,” their lawsuit stated...
  The lawsuit was filed by Jared Woodfill, a Houston-area attorney, who said in an interview that the Houston Methodist mandate violates the Nuremberg Code of 1947 that was written after the fall of the Nazi regime in Germany.

Useful Cyber Pandemic

 Living Humans,


From “Event 201” to “Cyber Polygon”: The WEF’s Simulation of a Coming “Cyber Pandemic”​  , Whitney Webb​    2/5/21
Last year, the World Economic Forum teamed up with the Russian government and global banks to run a high-profile cyberattack simulation that targeted the financial industry, an actual event that would pave the way for a “reset” of the global economy. The simulation, named Cyber Polygon, may have been more than a typical planning exercise and bears similarities to the WEF-sponsored pandemic simulation Event 201 that briefly preceded the COVID-19 crisis.​..
...​When the world’s most powerful people, such as members of the WEF, desire to make radical changes, crises conveniently emerge—whether a war, a plague, or economic collapse—that enable a “reset” of the system, which is frequently accompanied by a massive upward transfer of wealth.
​  ​In recent decades, such events have often been preceded by simulations that come thick and fast before the very event they were meant to “prevent” takes place. Recent examples include the 2020 US election and COVID-19. One of these, Event 201, was cohosted by the World Economic Forum in October 2019 and simulated a novel coronavirus pandemic that spreads around the world and causes major disruptions to the global economy—just a few weeks before the first case of COVID-19 appeared.​..
  ​Rather than preparing for a potential medical pandemic, Cyber Polygon 2020 focused on preparing for a “cyberpandemic,” one that mainstream media outlets like the New Yorker claim is “already underway.”​...​
​  ​Cyber Polygon 2020 was both an ad for pro-Russian relations and a promotional exercise for Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset. Some of the people who took part and supported the Cyber Polygon event are involved at the highest levels of cyber intelligence; some may have even been unofficial representatives of their national state intelligence apparatus. The decisions of several national governments to participate directly in the WEF-led Great Reset is no “conspiracy theory.” For instance, the incoming Biden administration sent its climate envoy, John Kerry, to the WEF annual meeting last month, where Kerry underscored the US commitment to the Great Reset agenda and the associated Fourth Industrial Revolution that seeks to automate most jobs being currently performed by humans. With the governments of Russia, China, the US, the UK, Israel, Canada, and India, among others, on board with this transnational agenda, it becomes deeply unsettling that high-ranking operatives in both the public and private sectors joined the WEF to conduct a simulation of a crisis that would clearly benefit the Great Reset agenda.​..
​  ​A massive cyberattack, such as that simulated at Cyber Polygon 2020, would allow faceless hackers to be blamed for economic collapse, thus absolving the real financial criminals of responsibility. Furthermore, due to the difficult nature of investigating hacks and the ability of intelligence agencies to frame other nation states for hacks they in fact committed themselves, any boogeyman of choice can be blamed, whether a “domestic terror” group or a country unaligned with the WEF (for now, at least) like Iran or North Korea.​..

Here is the under-2 minute-advert for the "cyber pandemic with COVID-like characteristics". It appeals to my fears. 
It works much better than that "You'll own nothing and be happy" drivel. 
This is a real threat. My heart is beating faster and my attention is focused. I need to know a lot more about this!

Here is the official WEF Cyber Polygon statement and sign up. The exercise begins July 9, 2021.

WEF Warns Of Cyber Attack Leading To Systemic Collapse Of The Global Financial System, Whitney Webb 4/7/21(Previously posted)​
​  ​A report published last year by the WEF-Carnegie Cyber Policy Initiative calls for the merging of Wall Street banks, their regulators and intelligence agencies as necessary to confront an allegedly imminent cyber attack that will collapse the existing financial system.​..
...again warned that nation-state hackers and cybercriminals were poised to work together to attack the global financial system in the short term...
...Their latest prediction of a doomsday event, a cyber attack that stops the current financial system in its tracks and instigates its systemic collapse, would offer the final yet necessary step for the Forum’s desired outcome of this widespread shift to digital currency and increased global governance of the international economy... ​ 
  It would also provide a justification for incredibly troubling policies promoted by the WEF-Carnegie report, such as a greater fusion of intelligence agencies and banks in order to better “protect” critical financial infrastructure...
  The report then ominously concludes that “one thing is clear: it is not a question of if a major incident will happen, but when.“ ...
​  The report’s authors argue that, “in the event of a crisis,” such as a devastating cyber attack on the global banking system, “social media companies should swiftly amplify communications by central banks” so that central banks may “debunk fake information” and “calm the markets.” It also states that “financial authorities, financial services firms and tech companies [presumably including social media companies] should develop a clear communications and response plan focused on being able to react swiftly.” Notably, both Facebook and Twitter are listed in the report’s appendix as “industry stakeholders” that have “engaged” with the WEF-Carnegie initiative.
​  ​The report also asserts that premeditated coordination for such a crisis between banks and social media companies needs to take place so that both parties may “determine what severity of crisis would necessitate amplified communication.” The report also calls for social media companies to work with central banks to “develop escalation paths similar to those developed in the wake of the past election interference, as seen in the United States and Europe.”Of course, those “escalation paths” involved wide-ranging social media censorship.​ ​The report seems to acknowledge this, when it adds that “quick coordination with social media platforms is necessary to organise content takedowns.”​ ...
​   ​Notably, the report mentions North Korea as a likely nation-state offender on several occasions.​..

Don’t expect the world economy to resume its prior growth pattern after COVID-19, ​ ​Energy Economics Analyst Gail Tverberg
​  ​Most people seem to think that the world economy is going through a temporary disruption, caused by a novel coronavirus. As soon as COVID-19 goes away, they expect the economy will be back to normal. I think that this assessment is overly optimistic. The way I see the situation, the world economy was already having severe growth problems, caused indirectly by resource problems, even before COVID-19 hit.

A Critical Shift in the War for Oil
​  ​Davos really do think they are too clever by half. Despite prognostications to the contrary, negotiations with Iran over a new JCPOA are nearing completion which Biden/Obama will sign off on after putting up a bit more token resistance to lifting sanctions.
Why do I say this? ​   ​Nordstream 2.
Biden backed down on Nordstream 2 and, at The Davos Crowd’s insistence, he will back down on the JCPOA.

Davos needs cheap energy into Europe. That’s ultimately what the JCPOA was all about. The basic framework for the deal is still there. While the U.S. will kick and scream a bit about sanctions relief, Iran will be back into the oil market and make it possible for Europe to once again invest in oil/gas projects in Iran.
Now that Benjamin Netanyahu is no longer going to be leading Israel, the probability of breakthrough is much much higher than last week.

On the 27th May 2021, Syria changed history. President Bashar Al Assad was re-elected with an overwhelming majority that even outshone his popularity in the 2014 elections.
This was about Syrians sending a message to the West.​..
​  The West will argue that Assad winning a landslide victory, 13,540,860 votes or 95.1% is a “rigged election” because that is the only come-back they have left, aside from their rebranding of a former Al Qaeda operative as viable opposition to the Syrian presidency that has maintained stability in a country torn apart by Western regimes and their proxy mercenary forces. The number of eligible voters was 18 million, turn-out was an estimated 78%.
