Former Chief Science Officer for MAJOR Pharmaceutical Giant Blows the Whistle on Covid, by Patti Walbridge

There may well not be a second wave of Covid-19. From Patti Walbridge at newshourfirst.com:

Dr. Mike Yeadon might not be savaged quite so hard by the media for stating something about COVID that’s against the fear narrative. Might. The survival rate mirrored the flu when we had numbers 6-8 weeks in. It still does. The virus is similar to the common cold which circulates every year but we don’t close down the United States for that or the flu. They’re all viruses. Some already have immunity from COVID based on previous viruses.

We now have six months of COVID facts

Some are in spite of political manipulation. Dr. Mike Yeadon, the former Pfizer Chief Science Officer says there’s “there is no science to suggest a second wave should happen.” “Almost all” of the latest tests are false positives.

He thinks the pandemic is essentially over, herd immunity has been reached. “Were it not for the test data that you get from the TV all the time, you would rightly conclude that the pandemic was over, as nothing much has happened. Of course people go to the hospital, moving into the autumn flu season…but there is no science to suggest a second wave should happen.”

COVID has been called a “scamdemic”

The CDC website itself has admitted only 6% of that 183,000 people died from COVID alone. The remainder died from something else but just happened to have COVID at the same time.

The death rates rose in late March to late April. That line has been flattened since the end of June and it continues that way. But the media is enjoying the eyes and fear.

COVID survival is actually very high

It’s 99.8% which is similar to the flu. It’s far higher than original grim estimates. In a scientific paper that Yeadon and two colleagues wrote, “There are at least four well characterised family members (229E, NL63, OC43 and HKU1) which are endemic and cause some of the common colds we experience, especially in winter. They all have striking sequence similarity to the new coronavirus.”

 

The Only Thing Systematic Is The Destruction of America – Part 2 (with link to Part 1), by Jim Quinn

One of the main objectives of the string pullers behind the coronavirus scam and the riots is to destroy a lot of small businesses. From Jim Quinn at theburningplatform.com:

In Part 1 of this article I detailed the purposeful systematic destruction of global economies, with a bad flu as the catalyst, as part of a plan by the Davos elite to reconstruct the world in a manner most beneficial to these evil men and detrimental to you and me. The fight remains to be fought. Orwell’s worst fears are coming to fruition.

The masking of the masses has been, and continues to be, about despotic politicians and arrogant bureaucrats demanding obedience as a mechanism to judge their ability to shame the masses into submission. It has nothing to do with health or protecting others. The health “experts” like Fauci, the Surgeon General and CDC director actually told the truth back in March when they told everyone masks didn’t protect you from viruses. When the powers that be decided this flu needed to be hyped and blown out of all proportion, mask wearing was used as the symbol of fear necessary to panic the public into submission.

Media campaigns, celebrity virtue signaling, corporate coordination, and fake documentation were immediately implemented to corral the sheep and force them to conform. Dehumanizing the population, using a false narrative to shame non-maskers as serial killers, turning neighbors into snitches, and using police thugs to enforce these unconstitutional dictates, has created an atmosphere of anxiety, suspicion and fear as the perfect method of domination. The non-critical thinking sheep are driven by emotion and feelings.

Russia Could Never Discredit The US Empire The Way These Guys Just Did, by Caitlin Johnstone

The best characterization we’ve seen of last night’s debate was that it was a shit show. That sums it up rather well. From Caitlin Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:

Well.

Wow.

I mean, wow.

So in case you missed it, the first US presidential debate was everything the US empire deserves and a fair reflection of everything the US empire is.

If Vladimir Putin were every bit the election-meddling demon the Democrats say he is, and if he had unlimited time and unlimited resources to create the perfect ninety-minute propaganda video to discredit the US-led unipolar world order, he could not have designed one more effective than the performance that was just delivered by President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden with the help of moderator Chris Wallace.

I mean, it had everything. Both candidates yelling over each other the entire time, Biden telling the sitting president of the United States to shut up on live television, Trump at one point saying the Proud Boys should “stand back and stand by“, Chris Wallace literally shouting to be heard over the unceasing interruptions, Biden getting confused and arguing that the Green New Deal would pay for itself and then turning around saying he does not support the Green New Deal, mountains of lies and nonsense, both candidates trying to out-right wing each other, and absolutely no meaningful discussion of policies that will actually help ordinary Americans at all.

No Coup For You, by The American Mind Editorial Board

What will Trump and his supporters do about the coming coup and The Gathering Super Tantrum? From the editorial board at americanmind.org:

Democrats are preparing to win by any means necessary. What’s the Right going to do about it?

Michael Anton’s warning about the upcoming election, “The Coming Coup,” continues to roil the public square. Will Republican leaders do their best to prepare for the crisis of legitimacy—caused purposefully by Democrat Party changes to our normal voting procedures—that now almost surely awaits us for weeks after November 3? We hope so.

But note well: for all the controversy it has caused, no one on the Left has yet tried to refute Anton’s article, point by point. Instead, slime continues to ooze forth from the usual crevices. At first, no one on “the other side” except Ed Kilgore at New York magazine responded. As we said in “Stop the Coup,” Kilgore, much like everyone else in the mainstream press, simply “sidesteps outrageous statements from leftist activists and Democrat Party royalty indicating they do not plan to concede even if Trump wins.” But at least Kilgore nodded towards to the substance of Anton’s article.

The TIPsters Strike Back

The next round of responses revealed what has become the new normal for the American Left. Let’s take three quick examples.

First, a scurrilous, poorly constructed hit piece appeared (listen to us discuss on our ‘The Roundtable’ podcast here) smearing Anton, The American Mind, and the Claremont Institute as anti-Semitic for daring to mention George Soros’s name. As Newt Gingrich—recently silenced on Fox News for the same supposed sin—responded here at The American Mind: “This is ludicrous.” Once again, the article did not deny or disprove anything asserted in “The Coming Coup.” Instead, it absurdly called us racists.

Donald Trump’s Tax Returns Have Been Released, by Bill Bonner

Is Donald Trump’s net worth anything close to what he implies it is? From Bill Bonner at rogueeconomics.com:

SAN MARTIN, ARGENTINA – The big news at the weekend was that the president has not paid much in federal income taxes for years. In 2016 and 2017, for example, the billionaire paid only $750.

Mr. Trump has portrayed himself to the public as a very rich and successful man. Yet, to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), he has painted a different portrait… more like a Francis Bacon than Hans Holbein the Younger.

That is, he cast himself as a loser… someone whose losses overpower his gains, and who thus, generally, owes no federal taxes.

But let’s come back to that…

Bad Mule

It’s spring here in the Southern Hemisphere. The grass is green. The sky is blue. And it’s time to plant the garden.

It was to that end that Gustavo put his shoulder to the plow on Saturday… and began an adventure.

Plowing with a mule

We have tractors. But the garden is enclosed within adobe walls. Only a mule could get in to do the work.

“Mules are better than horses,” Gustavo explained. “They’re strong. Reliable. But they’re temperamental. You have to work with them.

“You can get a horse that has been trained by a professional. But you have to train a mule yourself. You have to get to know it. Take your time. Mules don’t like to be rushed.

“If you buy a mule… the seller will tell you it’s been trained and it’s very tame. But nobody sells a good mule. They’re not like cars. You can’t upgrade to a better mule. And you can’t downsize to a smaller mule. If someone sells you a trained mule, you know there must be something wrong with it. And you don’t find out what it is until you try to work with it.

“One time, my grandfather bought a mule that had been trained up in the mountains… a long way away… maybe 20 hours on horseback. Well, he got the mule home and the next day, it ran away… It went all the way back to where it came from. Took a couple days.

“He got it back. But it was never a good mule. Some things you just have to do yourself.”

(The mule in question had come from a tiny, remote settlement – a speck of green oasis in a desolate landscape – on the other side of the most rugged mountains in the country.

In the last century, it was a watering stop for drovers taking their animals to the city. Now, it may be abandoned… or turned into a hippie colony. No one knows for sure. Or even how to get there…

We are planning an expedition… to be continued.)

The Only Thing Systematic Is The Destruction of America, by Jim Quinn

The Covid-19 response has enriched the usual suspects: the top .01 percent. From Jim Quinn at theburningplatform.com:

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!” – Upton Sinclair

Image for post

Upton Sinclair was describing willful ignorance based upon who butters your bread. The rampant corruption of our society, as power has been consolidated into fewer and fewer hands, has resulted in our political, financial, cultural and economic systems being captured by a billionaire class who use their wealth to dictate the path we are forced to follow – or lose everything.

The sociopath class include the Silicon Valley social media titans, the billionaires running the six mainstream media companies, the rogue billionaires like Soros and Bloomberg who fund chaos and foment insurrection, the Deep State surveillance agency operatives like Clapper, Brennan, Comey and Mueller doing the bidding of the oligarchy, Wall Street criminals like Dimon, Paulson, and Blankfein doing god’s work, and last but certainly not least – Powell, Yellen, Bernanke and slimy Kashkari priming the pump for the never ending systematic pillaging of the nation’s wealth.

When you witness what passes for legislators at the Federal, State and Local levels, you must weep for our future. These pathetic excuses for leaders display none of the qualities a citizenry would want in those they have elected to manage our governmental affairs. They are bought off hacks, lacking any intellectual honesty, and selling their votes to the highest bidder. They lie, misinform, steal, and do the bidding of the monied interests who selected them because they are pliable dupes without an ounce of courage or forethought about the long-term best interests of the people they are supposed to be representing.

A Primer for the Media on Viruses, Vaccines, and Covid-19, for Roger W. Koop

From a medical standpoint, the Covid-19 response was a massive and foolish overreaction. From Roger W. Koop at aier.org:

tutorial, reporter

2020 is a year when many things besides people have died, or at least placed on indefinite life support. Music and most arts and culture (at least audience-based), education, a person`s livelihood, social trust and interaction, common sense and common decency, debate, and we can include responsible journalism to the list.

In fact, responsible journalism was one of the first casualties of 2020 and bears responsibility for much of the rest.

My path to 2020 was unusual, to say the least, but it prepared me to deal with the events that have transpired. Each step of my career as a scientist I chose a path which led me to 2020. Here are some examples:

  • My two leading choices for the Ph.D. program in chemistry were at the University of Southern California (USC), where I had interviewed with Professor George A. Olah (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1992), and the University of California, Riverside (UCR). I chose UCR and Professor M. Mark Midland, who had earned his degree with Professor Herbert C. Brown (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1979) and was young, enthusiastic, and broad-based in his interests . If I had chosen and been able to study with Dr. Olah, my career would have been set but much more narrowly focused. I chose Dr. Midland and I have never regretted the choice.
  • With the Ph.D. in hand, I had a choice of academia (the expected route) or industry. I chose industry, specifically, the pharmaceutical industry since I had always been interested in medicinal applications and medicine in general.
  • In industry, I chose development over research based upon the unique challenges.
  • Later, I chose to move out of direct scientific work and into Quality Assurance. Part of this choice was the opportunity to learn new things.
  • Still later, I chose to move into Biopharmaceuticals and vaccines in particular. This afforded me a new opportunity at learning.
  • Finally, I moved into consulting to try and use my experience to assist others in the industry.

The last company I worked for was a vaccine company, as Director of QA. For those that do not understand, being responsible for Quality Assurance is an immense task. You have to be both an expert and a judge.

The company was founded in an attempt at development of an HIV vaccine. After 9/11, the company expanded into Biodefense and was pursuing the development of vaccines for anthrax and smallpox for the US National Stockpile as part of the newly formed Dept. of Homeland Security. I joined the company at that time and I became the project leader on a new smallpox vaccine being developed in collaboration with a Japanese company.

What You Need To Know About the Act of 1986, by Joseph Mercola

Find out everything you can about the Act of 1986 before you let someone jab you with a coranavirus vaccine. From Joseph Mercola at lewrockwell.com:

In this interview, Dr. Andrew Wakefield discusses the documentary1 “1986: The Act,” which he produced. He also co-wrote and directed Del Bigtree’s film “Vaxxed,” which discloses the conspiracy within the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to withhold information about vaccine harms.

Wakefield is now doing a tour promoting “1986: The Act,” which is the best documentary I’ve ever seen on this topic. It’s also one of two full-feature films included in the ticket price for the National Vaccine Information Center’s international public conference on vaccination,2 which will be held online October 16 through 18, 2020.

If you haven’t signed up for that event yet, I encourage you to do that now. If you want to watch the film now, it’s available online at 1986theact.com. A trailer is provided at the end of this article.

The Wakefield Controversy

Wakefield, as many of you know, has been a controversial character within the vaccine field. He’s been vilified like few others, to the point of losing his medical license — all because he, together with 12 other doctors, published a case paper suggesting there may be a possible association between measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and development of autism in some children. In the interview, Wakefield gives his side of the story:

“I graduated in 1981 from Royal Free Hospital in London. I had trained as a surgeon and went into gastroenterology. My principal interests were inflammatory bowel disease, and I ended up running a large research team, about 19 of us at the Royal Free Hospital in London, which is part of the University of London.

I became interested in the possible viral origins of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and that led me to looking at measles virus. After publishing a paper in The Lancet in 1995, I got a call from a mother who said her child was developing normally, then had his MMR vaccine and regressed into autism very, very quickly after [experiencing] what turned out to be encephalitis.

Seth Rich: The Murder Washington Doesn’t Want Solved, by Jack Cashill

Julian Assange probably has a pretty good idea who killed Seth Rich, which is why a good number of powerful people would just as soon Julian Assange die in Belmarsh prison. From Jack Cashill at americanthinker.com:

On the face of things, the July 2016 murder of Seth Rich had intrigue enough for a full season of House of Cards.

Unknown assailants gun down the young DNC data analyst at 4 A.M. on a Washington, D.C., street and take nothing.  Two weeks later, international man of mystery Julian Assange strongly suggests on Dutch TV that Rich was his source for the purloined DNC emails then roiling the Democratic Party and offers a $20,000 reward to find the killer.

Three days before the November election, Assange reportedly tells liberal media analyst Ellen Ratner that Rich was indeed his source.  Days after Trump’s inauguration, legendary investigative journalist Sy Hersh cites an FBI report confirming Assange’s claim.  Later that year, DNC honcho Donna Brazile dedicates her book Hacks to Rich and wonders out loud whether the Russians had “played some part in his unsolved murder.”

Despite the stakes — the Trump presidency hinged on the investigation’s outcome — there was to be no TV series about Rich’s life and death, no movie, no serious books, not even a single episode of Unsolved Mysteries or 48 Hours.  Incredibly, no major publication or network save for Fox News has even attempted to resolve the still unsolved murder, and Fox execs rather wish they hadn’t.

To understand how a story this potentially explosive could be suppressed for so long, it is necessary to understand one basic fact of Washington life: Donald Trump received just 4.1 percent of the District’s vote in the 2016 election.  Trump’s election disrupted short-term strategies and long-term expectations in every one of the capital’s major institutions, local and federal, public and private, the legal community among them.

Seeing Through Pea Soup, by James Howard Kunstler

The first presidential debate tomorrow night has all the makings of a travesty. From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:

Just as Regan, the possessed tweenager in the horror movie classic, The Exorcist, vomited streams of green sludge at Father Merrin in the final hours of her extremis, so, in the final weeks of election 2020, the possessed US news media will be boofing “bombshells” against its loathed and detested adversary, the president who attempted to exorcize the demons of the Deep State out of the federal government.

Thus, Democratic Party legal imp, Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance, Jr., or someone on his staff, leaked (illegally) years of Mr. Trump’s tax information to The New York Times as a counterweight to last week’s Senate report on the international grifting exploits of Joe Biden & Family. The difference is that Mr. Trump’s doings represent compliance with the US tax codes while the Biden activities represent payoffs from shady figures in foreign lands for services rendered. The Times and its DNC patrons are calculating that the public will not understand the difference.

It’s whispered that The Times was hoping to unload the tax story much later in the campaign but needed desperately to provide some ammunition for Mr. Biden’s turn in the debating ring with the president on Tuesday night, when both these matters are sure to come up for review. That is, if Mr. Biden dares to show up. Those of you with a taste for history may recall the final hours of another Democratic eminence of yore, William Jennings Bryan, when he was vivisected on the witness stand by Clarence Darrow at the Scopes Trial in Dayton, Tennessee, 1925. Five days later, Bryan dropped dead, and his reputation as a humiliated old fool is much better remembered than his moment of glory in 1893 as a 36-year-old nominee for president (youngest ever).
