As we contemplate the massive $40 billion transfer of U.S. taxpayer funds to Ukraine, a few things need to be emphasized.
First, congress has decided to pay the salaries, benefits and pensions of Ukraine political officials and citizens. As U.S. citizens try and figure out how to afford housing, gasoline, food and basic goods, congress has decided to subsidize another country. That’s the first point.
Second, as to the pragmatic question of “to what end?” There was a critical point made last week by Defense Intel Agency (DIA) Director Lt. Gen. Scott Berrier, that not a single media outlet or politician discussed. During his briefing to the Senate Armed Services Committee, Berrier was asked “can Ukraine win” the conflict against Russia?link
“Can Ukraine win the conflict against Russia?” The answer is no, stalemate at best. But even that is doubtful though it is assuredly deadly for Ukrainians and of no value to USA (unless you are a corrupt politician or a demented globopinko strategist). ABN
The new BA 2.12.1 COVID-19 variant now makes up 46% of sequenced infections in the U.S., up from 33% the week before
It has a 27% growth advantage over the BA.2 ‘stealth’ variant, which remains the dominant strain making up 56% of sequenced U.S. cases
The variant has made major gains in recent weeks after first being discovered by New York health officials last month, and is now dominant in the region
Experts abroad are warning about the BA.4 and BA.5 Omicron sub-variant that are causing large case surges in South Africalink
These figures fit with what Geert Vanden Bossche has been predicting—that new highly infectious variants will continue circulating among the vaccinated and also become much more deadly to the vaccinated. The only way we can prevent disaster, according to Vanden Bossche, is to stop mass vaccinations and begin distributing antiviral medications immediately. Few in control are listening to Vanden Bossche but he has been right about how vaccines are exacerbating the pandemic for over a year. I highly recommend viewing this video and sharing it with as many as you can. ABN
UPDATE: Officially defining unvaccinated as “anyone who is not fully boosted” seems especially sinister in light of Vanden Bossche’s predictions which are based on anyone who has received a dose of the vaccine though with worsening effects as the number of shots rises. ABN
The inconvenient truth is that even at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, a very simple, inexpensive and effective treatment was available that could have saved the majority of lives lost (1-3). All that the WHO and public health bureaucracy had to do was to recommend and support people taking sufficient Vitamin D3. This failure to act traces back to the unscientific bias and pro-vaccine obsession of Dr. Anthony Fauci. And once again the legacy media, while being paid by the US government and the pharmaceutical industry to promote vaccination, acted by censoring, defaming and suppressing the ability of physicians to inform people of scientific truth. The disease you suffered, the loss of life among your family and friends, could have been greatly reduced by simply getting enough Vitamin D3. This is another example of what happens when unelected bureaucrats are allowed to control free speech. Crimes against humanity.link
Also a lifelong crook. I would be more polite if our country itself were not the victim of a stolen election and an incompetent interloper. ABN
I revisited this MedDRA code today and wanted to report that this number has more than doubled (N = 11,314) since last October and occurring at increasingly younger ages. I stratified the reports filed for “Product administered to patient of inappropriate age” by age group and plotted the results in a bar plot as shown below. Of the 11,015 adverse events reports for which age data exists, 85% occur the 12-18 age group.
Almost 10,000 12-18 year-olds were inappropriately injected. Meaning, that at the time when the EUA was valid for a specific age group, those children were under the minimum age requirement.link
…for several months DHS has been preparing to start handling and processing 18,000 illegal aliens per day (540,000/mo) as soon as CDC Title 42 is lifted.
If DHS estimates are accurate, between now and the November mid-term election, DHS will import an additional 3,000,000 illegal aliens from various nations around the world, through the U.S-Mexico border.
Cumulatively, this arrival estimate will put the number of illegal aliens arriving in the United States during Joe Biden’s first two years in office somewhere north of 10 million people.link
Doctors should always follow the guidance of the CDC and NIH, even when it is wrong.
Any doctor who contradicts what the CDC or NIH say shall have their license to practice medicine revoked.
The CDC, FDA, and NIH are always right. So is the IDSA. In the event of a disagreement, the CDC always wins.
Unless you are an infectious disease specialist your opinion on infectious diseases does not matter.
Ivermectin doesn’t work. There will always be “insufficient evidence” to recommend it, no matter how much evidence there is.
Peer-reviewed published systematic reviews and meta-analyses are now considered to be “insufficient evidence” even if there are multiple ones.
Early treatments for COVID using cheap repurposed drugs don’t work, no matter what the evidence says.
If you see something that contradicts the narrative, don’t say anything. This is known as “See something, say nothing.” This is particularly important for doctors who are seeing massive numbers of deaths from the vaccine.
The vaccines don’t work, but just tell people who get COVID after being vaccinated that it would have been so much worse if they weren’t vaccinated.
For the elderly, there is no all-cause mortality data showing a benefit, but who needs data? Just recommend it.
Medical journals are prohibited from publishing papers that go against the narrative.
“Misinformation” is any information that contradicts the current mainstream narrative, even if it is true.
Never agree to debate any misinformation spreaders; they are evil people.
Expert opinion, formerly the lowest level of evidence, is now at the top of evidence-based medicine when the experts are from a government agency
You don’t need any clinical evidence to prescribe a drug or vaccine if the CDC says it is safe.
Always trust the drug companies and their clinical trials, even when there is clear fraud. Also, if the drug company claims that the deaths weren’t related to the drug, no evidence is required.
There is no stopping condition for COVID vaccines.
Risk benefit analyses should not look at all-cause mortality anymore. That is a distraction. What’s important is only the relative risk reduction, RRR.
Fraud never happens in clinical trials run by big pharma, even when it does.
Whistleblowers will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
If you work for the mainstream media, never acknowledge that there are differing opinions to the government narrative.
When science and politics disagree, politics always wins.
Any scientist who disobeys these rules will have their NIH funding cut off. Forever.
Vaccines only need to be tested for a few months to be deemed safe.
If it looks like the vaccine works, always make sure everyone in the placebo group gets the vaccine when the trial is over. Who needs a comparison group after 6 months?
There is no need to wait for data on pregnant women before recommending a new vaccine for pregnant women.
Kids are at severe risk for COVID, even when they aren’t.
It’s important to vaccinate kids to protect them against disease, even when there is no risk to them. This is especially true for young kids. It’s about keeping them safe from dying from COVID, even if there are no deaths in healthy kids from COVID. So what if the risk benefit analysis shows the vaccines will kill 100 kids for every kid we might save? The focus is solely on saving kids from dying from COVID. If a child dies from a cardiac issue from the vaccine, those don’t count.
If you aren’t sure about what you are allowed to say, try posting it on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or YouTube. If you get censored, stop saying it.
A doctor’s first duty is to keep his/her job, not to serve patients.
Autopsies are discouraged. The vaccine is safe so there is no reason to check to see if this caused the death.
For anything unusual (like dramatic drops in live births, increase in stillbirths, excess cardiac ambulance calls, etc), just assure the public that the CDC is looking into it.
There are no vaccine injured. These people are just under a lot of stress.
Never measure D-dimer or troponin levels after the COVID vaccine. Why would you want to do that? It’s a waste of time.
Informed consent means you were informed that you were going to be vaccinated and consented to it willingly. There is no need to reveal all the side-effects and risk of death; that would just scare people.
If you work in a hospital, always follow what the hospital says. You will be compensated on your ability to follow hospital protocol, no matter how many of your patients die unnecessarily. The hospital administrators know best.
You need to be fully vaccinated with the latest booster. If you are, there is no need to take a COVID test, even if you are feeling sick. Patient safety is #1.
When one of your patients dies from a vaccine injury, never ever mention the vaccine. It’s just an “unexpected death.”
People who think the vaccines are unsafe are simply mentally unfit. Avoid them or suggest psychiatric help.
if a patient says they are vaccine injured, tell them you can’t treat them.
If anyone asks about adverse vaccine reactions say that there is no proof of causation
Never log adverse reactions or deaths on VAERS. They can’t be vaccine related so all you are doing is wasting everyone’s time.
If a patient dies with COVID, it’s a COVID death, even if COVID didn’t cause the death.
Always wear a mask when seeing patients. You want everyone to know you follow “best practices.”
If Steve Kirsch contacts you for a scientific debate, ignore it no matter how much he is offering. It won’t end well.
Did I miss anything?link
I almost never put up an entire article but this one is too good. I would highlight all of in bright orange but my program does not easily allow that. In this piece, Kirsch lays out all the bs we have been suffering for the duration of the pandemic and are still suffering today. The utter stupidly and close-mindedness of the US government and major medical, academic, and scientific institutions on covid has been both painfully asinine and deeply, profoundly tragic. ABN
I for one do not believe these mistakes were entirely innocent. I can relate to doctors in fields not closely related to covid being unwilling or unable to speak up. And I can relate to bureaucrats and political functionaries being afraid to speak up. Same for low-level hospital administrators, academics, and scientists. But people at or near the top of the food chain who banned early treatments, mandated vaccines, restricted hospital treatments, denied religious and other exemptions, wrote garbage “news” stories about all of this, you behaved very badly.
The Buddhist way out of this terrible karma you have incurred is: 1) publicly admit your mistakes; 2) apologize for your mistakes; 3) make amends for your mistakes as you are able and as are proportionate to the harm caused; 4) vow never to do anything like that again. Take your lumps, suffer for having violated your own conscience. Then, when all of this has been completed and you have done your best and your vow is strong, put it behind you and dwell on it no more. For many for whom the above is necessary, this period of remorse and self-examination should last at least a year or more. ABN
The idea that Western “elites” are purposely driving our societies into chaos and penury so they can impose digital controls on money and all of us does not seem to explain what is happening. Rather, every day it looks more like “elite” incompetence, hubris, ignorance, habit, and stupidity are the cause of nothing going well and everything going very badly. ABN
We are already seeing a sea-change in information dissemination at Twitter. And this change will affect all other information sources. The Overton Window is going to move away from scenes of cozy pseudoscience and political happy talk to a seething reality of real science and realpolitik. If Musk releases the logs and algorithms of Twitter censorship, the public will come to understand how profoundly duped they have been and by whom and by what means. ABN
Filing this one under “incompetence”. Our elite constitute a subculture of old money plus credentialed toadies plus assorted friends, all of whom have proved themselves to be out of touch with reality and not very smart. It has become so bad it appears their only move left is deliberate chaos through war, economic crash, maybe another virus, or all three. You can see the vapid incompetence almost wherever you look—Biden, Trudeau, Schwab, Disney, Fauci, etc. We may assume there is a more intelligent group behind these puppets but increasingly, I wonder. ABN
Biden not only can’t do his job, he also lacks enough sense to step down and go away. He is a ridiculous person, a mockery of competence and decency. ABN
