Charm Initiative

 Charming People,

  I'm going on a charm initiative (I was going to say "charm offensive", but it's ...).
A couple of days ago I emailed the Medical Directors at my clinic about the Houston nurses (and others) fired for their refusal to accept experimental genetic engineering "vaccinations" into their bodies.
  I said that having given it deep consideration, and not thinking that our clinic would act this way (I don't), that if such an edict came down from Washington I would have to resign my position.
  My statement of principle and position was politely received, with the reply that this was not a near-term consideration.
  I have made the loss of my services a set-piece going forward. I don't really want that. I have worked 17 (discontinuous) years at this clinic. I am versatile in what services I can provide, broadly experienced, do very good work, as judged by patients and reviewers, grow the vegetable garden, and go pretty slowly. I am not "productive" as business managers judge those things, or as payers reimburse. I am a money loser.
  I have not taken a vacation, and have lost almost all of that time by not using it, in the 8 continuous years I have been working there recently. I work all day every Friday. Nobody wants to do that. I work a 12 hour long 8-hour shift, and I don't leave until everything is done. 
Since I am not monetarily "productie", I seek to be generally helpful and to prevent bad things from happening on my watches.
  Fifteen years ago, when "the kids" were teenagers, we sold the house and cars, and traveled around the world with bikes and backpacks. 
We were "home schooling" the kids. It worked out fine. They learned stuff. Nobody missed a year.
  Two places we visited taught the same lesson, Dachau concentration camp in Germany, and Tuol Sleng torture prison museum in Cambodia. 
The lesson was not that the people who did those things were monsters.
  The torturers and guards were ordinary people, which is a really important insight. They got mired in a sequence of slightly easier decisions to not quite do the right thing this time. They entered Hell gradually, having no-other-choice, each little step of the way, as they saw it. 
Things did not get better. Things did not go back to normal.
  Knowing this feature of history, one must determine how one would avoid getting caught in such a trap, should it be laid for them. One must act when one still has some autonomy. That is pretty early in the process, clearly before things "get bad". When does the frog jump out of the progressively warming water?
  What might be the signal? You can see that I have chosen the signal of forced injection of genetic-engineering black-boxes, the elimination of personal choice regarding bodily autonomy, as my hill-to-die-upon.
  I'd rather not die on that hill, so to speak, but I can't work in a setting that has adopted that human-as-property ethos.
I'm going to find ways to be even nicer and more useful than usual. I think the vegetable garden emails that everybody likes are going to become a bit more frequent.
  The garden is producing. It's June.

No "healthy young children" have died from COVID.
​  ​The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now claims that "healthy young children" can die from COVID-19. Marty Makary wants to see the evidence.
"In reviewing the medical literature and news reports, and in talking to pediatricians across the country, I am not aware of a single healthy child in the U.S. who has died of COVID-19 to date," the Johns Hopkins University professor of medicine and public health said Thursday.

19-Year-Old College Freshman Dies From Heart Problem One Month After Second Dose of Moderna Vaccine
​  ​Simone Scott underwent a heart transplant one month after developing what her doctors believe was myocarditis following her second dose of Moderna. She received the second vaccine May 1 and died June 11.

The Killer in the Bloodstream: the "Spike Protein"
​  ​The Spike Protein is a “uniquely dangerous” transmembrane fusion protein that is an integral part of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. “The S protein plays a crucial role in penetrating host cells and initiating infection.” It also damages the cells in the lining of the blood vessel walls which leads to blood clots, bleeding, massive inflammation and death.
​  ​To say that the spike protein is merely “dangerous”, is a vast understatement. It is a potentially-lethal pathogen that has already killed tens of thousands of people.
​  ​So, why did the vaccine manufacturers settle on the spike protein as an antigen that would induce an immune response in the body?
That’s the million-dollar question, after all, for all practical purposes, the spike protein is a poison.

​  ​On 25 May 2021, the Indian Bar Association (IBA) served a 51-page legal notice on Dr Soumya Swaminathan, the Chief Scientist at the World Health Organisation (WHO), for “her act of spreading disinformation and misguiding the people of India, in order to fulfil her agenda.”
​  ​The Mumbai-based IBA is an association of lawyers who strive to bring transparency and accountability to the Indian justice system. It is actively involved in the dissemination of legal knowledge and provides guidance and support to advocates and ordinary people in their fight for justice.
The legal notice says Dr Swaminathan has been:
“Running a disinformation campaign against Ivermectin by deliberate suppression of effectiveness of drug Ivermectin as prophylaxis and for treatment of COVID-19, despite the existence of large amounts of clinical data compiled and presented by esteemed, highly qualified, experienced medical doctors and scientists,”

​People "split the alternatives" once they have committed to a decision. The alternative they did not choose becomes, in hindsight, nothing-worth-considering, even though the decision was close and difficult. After more difficult decisions, the alternative-splitting effect may actually increase, to relieve stress of cognitive dissonance.
​  A new poll shows that Democrats and Republicans are just about as divided on an employee's right to choose whether to get vaccinated against Covid-19 as they are on a woman's right to choose whether to abort her unborn child.
  Nearly 80% of Democrats agreed that employers should be able to force their workers to get Covid-19 shots, according to a CBS News-YouGov poll released on Sunday. In contrast, only 39% of Republicans approved of giving businesses such authority over their employees' medical choices. The overall response was 56%-44% in favor of forced jabs.
  Supporters of the two major parties are more split on vaccine choice than on Covid-19 inoculation in general. While 95% of Democrats have already been vaccinated or are at least considering it, 71% of Republicans are on board or thinking about taking the jab, the poll showed.

Still not to be discussed, the multiple mechanisms of action of ivermectin against SARS-CoV-2. 
Thanks Marc MD. This is a technical paper with a good graphic.

After his name was mentioned on late night TV, Sen. Johnson shares letter from grateful constituent
​  ​Johnson tweeted on Tuesday that he enjoyed the pair's discussion on the show and the lawmaker shared a letter from a constituent who had written to say that Ivermectin greatly helped his wife who had suffered significantly with COVID-19...
​  ​"I am writing today to thank you for your leadership in Wisconsin as it relates to COVID and alternative treatments. My wife and I watched Dr. Pierre Kory testify before the Senate Committee about ivermectin, Dec. 8, 2020, and we were utterly dumbfounded that this treatment was not readily available as treatment and prevention to the general public," the constituent wrote.
​  ​The letter explained that the woman later became ill with COVID-19 in May and suffered significant symptoms.
"Her case was quite severe; she will report that she has never experienced the severity of headaches and body aches in her lifetime as well as severe nausea and high temperatures," the letter noted. "As the days progressed, she grew so weak that she was not able to walk without assistance."
​  ​"As her symptoms worsened, I remembered the hearing you hosted and Dr. Kory. Through your leadership on this issue, I was finally able to connect with a Green Bay doctor that provided my wife real treatment — Ivermectin and other support prescriptions. Within an hour of taking Ivermectin, her headaches were gone,"
the person told Johnson.​ 
(Your Mileage May Vary. Most people feel better within 48 hours, in my experience.)

​Russian "charm offensive": Thanks Wiggs. This is charming(ish) and not too long at all.
Full video of Vladimir Putin playing the piano and singing "Blueberry Hill". The Russian prime minister is used to taking to the stage, but this time it was not for one of his speeches.

​Please be informed that this article is Political Satire, a new category that Facebook (and the New York Times) had to discover after slandering the Babylon Bee as a far right extremist blog and censoring it.​ 
It turns out that Political Satire is an old and constitutionally protected (as such things go) form of public speech.
In Honor Of Pride Month, Biden Announces He Will Also Sniff Men's Hair
Biden was then quickly led off the podium by his wife before he could say any more.
​  ​"Every gender! I'll sniff 'em all!" Biden yelled, protesting as he was dragged out of sight of the crowd.
According to sources, no gay men have taken up Biden on his offer to sniff their hair. However, hundreds of straight male journalists have lined up outside the White House clapping and cheering, hoping for their chance to be sniffed by the President.

​Black Holes can only get bigger. 
Damned, ultimately, no matter whether you do or don't. (More Russian news.)
​  ​Splitting the gravitational wave data into time segments before and after the black holes merged, the researchers calculated the surface areas of the black holes in both periods.
​  ​The physicists found that the surface area of the new black hole was actually greater than the two initial black holes combined. The finding confirms a prediction made by famed scientist, Stephen Hawking, in the 1970s, in which he stated that black holes cannot decrease in surface area as it mirrored a rule in physics, that entropy or disorder can’t decrease over time.
