The World Tribune has a stunning story about an ABC News reporter’s effort to target the unvaccinated and support the Biden policy to force vaccines. WXYZ in Detriot, an ABC affiliate, asked viewers to share stories of loved ones who died of COVID after refusing or delaying to get the vaccine. This request produced an unexpected truth bomb.
By noon on Monday, the post had received over 39,000 angry and often heartbreaking responses. Virtually every string contains a firsthand report by people whose family members are grieving the loss of loved ones of all ages.
Typical of many of the responses, one woman wrote poignantly:
And there were more:
Take time to read this piece. The Trib also links to Jim Hoft’s article on the deaths reported on the CDC VAERS database.
Somewhat O/T, but Epoch Times have an excellent article entitled “Fauci Wants UN to ‘Rebuild the Infrastructures of Human Existence’”. The article concerns a paper in a scientific journal called Cell jointly authored by Fauci – link below. I’d highly recommend folks read the short Epoch Times article at least. Here are a couple of quotes to give you a flavor of the referenced paper:
“Living in greater harmony with nature will require changes in human behavior as well as other radical changes that may take decades to achieve: rebuilding the infrastructures of human existence..”
“..we will need to prioritize changes in those human behaviors that constitute risks for the emergence of infectious diseases. Chief among them are reducing crowding at home, work, and in public places as well as minimizing environmental perturbations such as deforestation, intense urbanization, and intensive animal farming”
Interesting stuff in a scientific journal by an immunologist no? Less scientific paper and more Utopian manifesto. You will not be surprised to learn that Fauci also advocates strengthening the WHO in order to achieve the above. If nothing else I think this is a very useful insight into the thinking of the Chief Medical Advisor to the President. I am reminded of the scene from The Simpsons Movie in which the head of the EPA is challenged by one of his henchmen:
Henchman: “Sir, I’m afraid you’ve gone mad with power”
Cargill: “Of course I have! You ever tried going mad without power? It’s boring! No one listens to you!”
Fauci is making the case for killing off at least three quarters of the present human population to reach the survival of the fittest, who can then best “live in harmony with nature.”
Good times after the Black Plague too – he must be channeling his Renaissance Italian ancestors.
The Malthusians’ plan seems to be to depopulate the planet and create a kind of global national park playground for the billionaires. The serfs needed to service their every need will be housed, presumably outside the park boundaries, in dystopian hell holes known as “smart cities”.
Barbara Ann, here’s an alternative suggestion for the Malthusians plan, which seems plausible enough to me;
There is also a link on that page to a video by the author presenting his theory (in German), of which the pdf is a translation
“[Fauci] must be channeling his Renaissance Italian ancestors.”
Fauci’s immigrant forebears were from Southern Italy — Naples and Sicily.
Although Spanish-ruled Naples shared in some Renaissance development, the independent Northern Italian city-states are where most of the Renaissance flowers bloomed.
To this day Northern Italians and Southern Italians hold each other in fierce disdain.
More likely Fauci is channeling survival skills honed in his childhood in Brooklyn-Bensonhurst.
They better suppress those stories.
“Pfizer to seek US vaccine approval for children between 6 months and 5 years in November”
That’s presumably the one actually approved, which has zero long term studies, and not the others.
Wait! I thought we were summarily dismissed by a certain someone with “no one is talking about vaccinating children”, like we’re mere paranoid dolts that just make stuff up.
It looked like a good media chainsaw to whack the unvaccinated but chainsaws have a nasty tendency to kickback at the wrong angle. Got em pretty good too but nothing the ER can’t handle. Doc says they’ll be back to whacking in no time.
Every time I have gotten a vaccine, I have to fill out a questionnaire and the person administering the shot asks me a few questions before giving it to me which I assume are the high priority no-no’s. They always ask me, ‘are you feeling sick today or recovering from a a sickness in the past few days’.
Here is the one the CDC requires pharmacies to use before giving out vaccines:
The rabbi should file a civil lawsuit against the rehab facility. Being coerced into taking a vaccine while you are recovering from that illness is not defensible.
The woman w/the enlarged heart and pulmonary heart condition, a pharmacy would have to be crazy to administer a vaccine themselves without referring her to a doctor.
The other cases would have to be investigated. Cause of death not listed, age not listed, medical history unavailable. Coincidences do happen and many more associates of people who die within 30 days of someone getting a vaccine is going to call VAERS than is typical for other medication because of the increased awareness and widespread use.
A 20 day spread for a two shot regime overlaps with 10% of all deaths in the U.S.
Larry, perhaps there is one thing we might agree on in relation to Covid and vaccination; we can look at it from the point of view of evolution.
Covid19 is creating evolutionary pressure on the human race but not just through selection of people with genetic immunity. I think a more important selection pressure in the USA is people’s ability to identify what is true out of the blizzard of misinformation regarding Covid and then make what will be a life saving or life ending decision regarding their response: to vaccinate….or not, to take vitamin supplements, HCQ, etc. or not, how to protect their family, etc.
As to the correct answer, we’ll, those alive in a few years time will know what it is and also as a herd be smarter in dealing with misinformation. To put that another way; stupid is going to get culled from the gene pool.
Except that your selection theory is turned upside down by the fact that covid is not a risk to those in their prime breeding years. So those who avoid polluting themselves with spike protein vaccinations and who fear not the virus and who go out and meet members of the opposite sex, will continue the species.
Whereas the Chicken Littles that fear the virus and socially isolate and/or damage their reproductive organs with the virus, will not breed.
So yes, covid will make the species stronger by weeding out weaklings and cowards.
Eric, I didn’t specify which group is going to be proved right.
By the way, you know you are channeling Gen. Jack D Ripper don’t you?
“Covid19 is creating evolutionary pressure on the human race…”
China’s biological weapon is killing lots of old people. The political elite’s policies are going to do more than cull the stupid.
You may be right. When people take medical advice from a high school graduate in Bill Gates and accept truth from another famous high school grad in in Zuckerberg….probability of this turning out well not looking all that dandy.
At this point it looks like whoever makes it to the otherside of the shoreline after swimming through all the used diapers, empty water bottles and used masks will be deemed the victors.
You are right. People are just too stupid to be trusted to make decisions for themselves. Best let the smart people in government mandate what we have injected into our bodies, what we eat and the details of every other significant aspect of our lives. That way we dumbasses can be prevented from harming ourselves. Perhaps it’s time we drew up a Declaration of Dependence.
Sure Barbara, how about you driving the wrong way down the freeway shouting “It’s my right to do as I please!”
The right to choose what the State can inject into my body being equivalent to the highway rules sure makes for the bravest of new worlds. Kinda makes me wonder what they’ll inject me with when I exceed my Personal Carbon Allowance & fail a smog check.
meant to say damage their reproductive organs with the vaccine (there is evidence that it happens)
Coincidentally, I just got a link from WAPO about ‘The fifth conservative talk show host to die of COVID’ https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/conservative-radio-host-who-spurned-vaccines-mocked-aids-patients-dies-of-covid-19/ar-AAOrt8l?ocid=uxbndlbing
I’ve never heard about any of these guys but it would very be brazen to make such an easily refutable claim. Apart form this, I have heard of Herman Cain, and Congressmen Ron Wright / Luke Letlow.
My point is that if the Covid Vaccines had such a high morbidity rate that a significant number of people have complications and even die within hours or days, wouldn’t there be SOME CNN anchors biting the dust or NFL players dropping out after taking vaccines? The NFL has a 93% vaccination rate and the MSM anchors and Congress are at and above the 50% vaccination rate.
You’re assuming that those connected people are getting the real shots.
That is an interesting thought that I have entertained myself. Did they really get vaccinated? Do they have access to care providers that would create them a fake vax card? I think that is very possible. If they did get a real vaccination and had a bad reaction, would they be allowed to talk about it publicly? Doubtful.
The CDC is inflating covid death figures and lying about it. I am 100% convinced of that. They have killed a lot of people by creating a deferred care situation in 2020 (along with destroying small businesses and stimulating an increase in “deaths of dispair” They are too deep into now to back off. The pharmaceutical companies making the vaccines are financially incentivized. Some of that huge money flows back to decision makers in government. Fauci is probably on the hook because his illegal funding created the virus in the first place. these people are not going to come clean and, per big govt SOP, they will keep doubling down on the narrative.
I’m not normally a conspiracy theorist, but this is a conspiracy.
This appears to be one big Millgram experiment.
I remain perplexed that Fauci himself was shown getting a “jab” in one arm. And the next day tapping his opposite arm, claiming he only had some slight injection site pain.
Was that a trick caused by camera inversion? Or is Fauci like a strong percentage of other health fare workers in fact “vaccine hesitant”. But also like a strong percentage of Democrats, in love with the symbolic theater of covid.
Victor Davis Hansen has a good piece today claiming –“science is dying, replaced by superstition disguised as morality. ”
(Pow! The man has a precise, efficient way with words.)
Sometimes I fantasize that all the madness is a stress test on our attitudes to fundamental liberties by some hidden but benign power. When we’re told the truth it all suddenly goes away and we all have a good laugh about how realistic the simulation was.
The people orchestrating this are certainly using the lessons of the Milgram experiment. When they get to the stage of herding the filthy Unvaxxed into ‘quarantine camps’ the government will be able to rely on plenty of willing help.
Yesterday was the anniversary of the Nuremberg Laws in 1935 Germany btw.
A benign hidden power is a happy thought. As we both know, that’s all it is. Humans, despite their spiritual nature and capacity for love, joy and beauty, tend to regress to little better than talking monkeys fighting to fulfill monkey needs and desires. So pretty sure if the experiment is showing positive results (to the self-proclaimed alpha monkeys), then it ill progress to implementation of more oppressive and evil policy.
I always wondered why the devil is portrayed as he is. If evolution is true, then the devil should be some kind of simian. The negative energy that regreses to the lower life form.
This is ironic. My folks live outside Detroit, I’m in Japan. My father and I were having a slightly heated conversation about me waiting for the Novavax. Then he told me of some local Detroit news clip interviewing folks coming out hospital after recovering from Covid and saying “oh I wish I had gotten the shot.” I slightly laughed and said I don’t buy it. He got a little flustered and asked me if I thought it was some kind of put-on, and I said yes. Then he just relaxed and said he just feels sorry for the people refusing the jabs. I had no comment after that but I did snicker. Then we moved on to sports. It sucks cuz I haven’t seen them in over 2 years. He’s 89.
Making the case, the “covid” PCR test is irrelevant, deceptive and useless:
Our county public health officer just stated the PCR test remains the “gold standard” in our war against “covid”. So much for the word of rocket scientists in the Golden State.
So the county public health official is unaware of the CDC Notice to Labs to discontinue use of the original, “gold standard” PCR test by the end of this year, 2021? Issued July 21, 2021.
That is the person responsible for overseeing public health measures and policy in the county? Not reassuring, is it?
Labs are instructed by CDC “to begin their transition to another FDA-authorized COVID-19 test.”
No indication about what the reliability is of those other authorized tests or why the current PCR has fallen from favor.
The CDC notice does recommend that labs “consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses.” This suggests that the current PCR may have deficiencies in specificity. In other words, it does not distinguish well enough between the covid virus and other viruses with similar symptoms, such as flu. Thus, it produces false covid-positive test results.
Smoke, there are approximately 200 PCR Covid tests now on the market. CDC didn’t need to offer its own any more.
There are now also rapid Antigen tests although they are not as accurate as PCR. They can be used for quick screening I’m told.
Walrus, you could be right. The county’s lab may indeed be using the new tests, and the county official is simply still using old terminology – “PCR”. That category of tests seems to be referred to, now, as “molecular” tests or NAAT’s (nucleic acid amplified test). All or almost all are still PCR tests.
I haven’t heard anyone characterize any current test as a “gold standard” in months. PCR tests have demonstrable shortcomings. They are, as you note, still thought to be more accurate than antigen tests.
The FDA did establish a protocol for the first iteration of PCR tests in 2020, which many private companies then manufactured with FDA approval. The FDA has now established a new, improved (they hope) protocol, which all tests must conform to by end of 2021.
Best I can understand the FDA’s medical jargon, the explanation for the change is the following. In early 2020 FDA had no actual viral specimen to work with, only a model (from the Chinese?). Based on this, FDA established a standard, and manufacturers cobbled together something like covid viral strands, using bits of real and synthetic RNA from various other sources, in order to make their assays. FDA refers to these as “contrived samples.”
Thus, the initial tests were developed using varying source materials. There was no real standardization. No one really knew whether results from different test kits were comparable. The FDA’s new standard has been developed from specimens collected from covid patients.
Can anyone clarify this explanation?
Under the circumstances, referring to any of these PCR/ molecular tests, past or revised, as a “gold standard” seems a poor choice of words, at best.
Works in progress, the unknowns of the disease and vaccines still outweigh the knowns.
Right. And, hence, inflated covid hospitalizations and deaths counts.
The death counts are not inflated. Total deaths from all causes in 2019: 2,854,838, in 2020: 3,358,814, an increase of 500k where the CDC only attributed 380k of those deaths to Covid
I remember that one of the big talking points was … ‘Covid is a hoax because the number of deaths in 2020 is lower than 2019’ or ‘Covid is a hoax because deaths from other causes are declining in order to increase bogus Covid deaths’
Well not according to the actual CDC numbers. There was an increased death rate between 2019 => 2020 that did not exist between 2018 => 1019.
But Laura Ingraham found every example of a ukulele player, falling off his unicycle being re-classified as a Covid death, all 10 of them.
Chris, In fact, the death rate in Florida from this latest wave is substantially higher. In the 250 days from Nov 17 to July 22 .6 died per day. Since July 23 through today the number is 4 per day. All of this is data from Sarasota Memorial Hospital. While the majority of the hospitalized are not vaccinated, between 15 & 20% vaccinated also are hospitalized. What is truly fascinating is that India has a lower death rate from Covid than the United States. They are using Ivermectin there on a nationwide basis.
” the CDC only attributed 380k of those deaths to Covid”
Cuomo is responsible for 10% of those deaths due to his treatment of elderly nursing home partients. I wonder what percentage Whitmer, DeWine, Wolf and his tranny health secretary now at HHS managed to kill off? The rest of that increase? Well the baby boomers are hitting thier seventies and have been for half a decade. That would account for an increase, unless you believe they are immortal.
You are woefully misinformed and propagandized. You are making erroneous assumptions about what killed them.
Most of the excess deaths are people who died because they had chronic or acute conditions and they couldn’t access appropriate medical care, or were made too afraid of covid to go out and get the care they needed. Then there were suicides, drug ODs.
Finally, you can’t compare raw numbers for the excess deaths. The population gets older and bigger each year.
In case you doubt me, read this study. This was done early in the “pandemic” – https://newsroom.cigna.com/deferring-care-during-covid-19
You tell me, how do you have one of these conditions and NOT get care and still live? How?
This is one insurance company with about 15 million covered lives. I happen to know that all of the big companies saw similar trends in 2020 and those trends got worse after the linked study was published.
With many topics on this forum, I only have an opinion and that opinion is often not well informed, but with this topic, we are squarely within my realm of professional expertise and I am current.
So someone has acute appendicitis. They call their doctor (maybe) and are told it’s probably just a stomach ache from indigestion. Stay home, stay safe, you’ll feel better in the morning. The condition reaches the point of being critical. By the time the patient gets to the hospital they are dying. The lousy test says the patient is covid positive because it’s not reliable. Now we have a covid death. Even if not chalked up to covid, it’s still a death that would have been prevented in previous years. Repeat this scenario tens of thousands of times or more.
One must factor increased deaths from suicides and drug/alcohol abuse during the lock downs as well. Add those to those “dying from covid”, aka covid administrative response over-kill.
Smoke, I am kind of with Walrus on this: I don’t see the CDC links as saying anything about RT-PCR in general. But I do see that FDA has 261 EUAs (15 Sep 2021) for In Vitro Diagnostics/Molecular Diagnostic Tests for SARS-CoV-2, of which real-time RT-PCR tests form a significant percentage (didn’t try to summarize from FDA’s list).
I also see some of these bloggers conflating CDC guidance for determining “Cases” for epidemiological reporting with diagnosis for treatment by medical personnel, which CDC makes clear are two different things.
I do agree that the “gold standard” pronouncement is more for public consumption than part of “The Science”.
Enlarged hearts, blood clots, one doctor seeing a huge increase in cancer, my own wife becoming less smart in less than a month – no thanks.
“To put that another way; stupid is going to get culled from the gene pool.” Walrus
I wouldn’t call either the vaccinated or not vaccinated stupid. They have made their decisions to the best of their ability. I hope neither group gets culled. It will be much harder though if the vaccinated are culled, I don’t relish having to deal with just about everyone in my family leaving me behind.
How much of any 2021 “huge increase of cancer” will be due the 2020 relabeling/mislabeling cancer deaths as “covid” deaths?
As suggested by the 2020 Johns Hopkin’s CDC Morbidity data analysis which found a near perfect correlation between drops in prior listings of common causes of death, and increases in deaths now labeled as covid deaths – but no net difference in averages all-cause death numbers for 2020 compared to the prior 10 years.
Who cares. It’s a boomer doomer. Social Security, Medicare, VA disability, and welfare will be solvent again.
Might explain the truly anguished email I got from a long time friend in New Zealand on the day of the US election, who was so worried about the violence the US election might trigger.
I assumed she was talking about our own US inner city violence, but now I wonder if from her perch in New Zealand was worried about this rumored “war with China” Trump was supposed to be starting. That would make any threat more immediate in her part of the world.
Ironically, her email came right in the middle of the Georgia vote counting when all the sudden they shut down ….due to a water main leak. I wrote to her at that time — uh oh, this is how the Democrats can cause trouble.
Needless to say my comments about Democrats causing mischief by suspending the Georgia vote count were more prescient than Gen Milley’s comments about Trump starting an 11th hour WWIII nuclear attack.
Democrats are vile. Since Jan 2020, they have spread nothing but fear, lies and threats just for their own political advantage. But since it works so well on the majority of the US voting populace, why begrudge their cynical successes. Hell would be too good of a punishment for them.
All politics are local. I am reminded of the Democrat machine takeover of our local community college board and their very mean-spirted firing of the college CEO – the new Democrats now in charge of this decision demanded she pack up and be off campus in 48 hours ……because she might burn the school down – a direct quote.
It was an egregious way to treat someone who had served the college with distinction for the prior three years, but who went against the grain of some Democrat pet projects and teachers union demands. Since that time the college has now had 7 new college presidents in ensuing 10 years and the new board is surprised no one decent wants to even apply for the job.
Thought shall no touch the third rail of Democrat politics in this state and live to tell about it. Third rail -is teacher union job protections. Which may help explain why California keeps shooting itself in the foot, because the public sector unions have gotten so powerful they control the narrative and the agenda.
Whistleblower claims “covid patients overloading ICU beds” is patently false in her hospital. Internal documents wildly differ from press reports:
