If I could afford a lawyer he would advise me to insert a disclaimer in this article (as others have done): “I’m not a doctor and I’m not offering you medical advice. Investigate every point I make here and make your own decisions.“
So where is the part about talking this over with your doctor? There are maybe a million doctors in America. One doctor I really trust thinks you might get a straight answer from about 500 of them. The rest are buying the party line or are afraid to lose access to their profession. You might get better information from the nurses. Or you could try Tarot cards. Anyway, given the current state of things, I’m proud not to be a doctor.
It looks like the American medical establishment picked the wrong horse. Most of the people reading this will have seen the CDC message telling them, “You are not a horse.” CDC goes on to say “You are not a cow. Seriously y’all. Stop it.” The “y’all” bit is over the top. Some underpaid intern probably came up with that.
That message is part of the propaganda war on the use of ivermectin to treat Covid. The efforts of the CDC, NIH, FDA, WHO, and who knows what other alphabet soup agencies are an expression of their intention to deny any alternative to the three experimental vaccinations.
Anytime you encounter the words “There is no evidence” you can be fairly sure you are reading or listening to a Democrat, progressive, socialist, or communist trying to cancel something out of existence. For all I know, the far left may have a copyright on the phrase.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is just another Hollywood piece of garbage. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:
Arnold Schwarzenegger made news a few months back when he angrily denounced people who objected to being “locked down” like convicted criminals for health crimes they’d never committed. Not unlike millions of people in Arnold’s Austrian homeland who were treated similarly on account of the supposed threat to the health of the volk they presented.
Screw your freedoms, the aging bodybuilder growled.
It’s a sad thing – for those of us who made the mistake of admiring Arnold once-upon-a-time as a guy we were led to believe valued our freedom. As opposed to just his. He rode this image to stardom – and into the California governor’s mansion.
But it was all for show – like the steroid-pumped muscles he flexed on stage which now droop flaccidly under the cruel effects of time and gravity.
More evidence of Arnold’s posing cropped up a couple of days ago, when what’s left of the former Mr. Olympia blew through a red light and terminated a Toyota Prius . . . which he wasn’t driving.
Arnold was driving the anti-Prius, a GMC Yukon. It is currently the largest non-commercial vehicle sold by any car company. Many people like to drive big SUVs just like it, probably for many of the same reasons Arnold likes to drive his. They provide a sense of physical security no other type of vehicle can match and that is no small thing in a world coming unglued. They are powerful, which makes them capable – which makes them appealing.
Unlike VAERS, you can’t quarrel with the U.S. military’s medical data. From Daniel Horowitz at theblaze.com:
Data, transparency, and surveillance. That is what has been missing from the greatest experiment on humans of all time throughout this pandemic. Now, military medical whistleblowers have come forward with what they claim is perhaps the most accurate and revealing data set on vaccine safety one could possibly find.
The pro-pharma politicians and media claim the CDC’s pharmacosurveillance tool “VAERS” is not good enough to trigger investigations into the shots because anyone can supposedly submit a vaccine adverse event entry. Thus, all the concerning safety signals from VAERS are being ignored, even though that system was put in place as a consolation to the public for absolving vaccine manufacturers of liability. Well, now some military whistleblowers are coming forward to present data that, if verified, would signal extremely disturbing safety concerns about the vaccine that make the VAERS data look like child’s play.
On Monday, during Sen. Ron Johnson’s five-hour hearing on a “COVID-19: Second Opinion,” Ohio attorney Thomas Renz, who has been representing clients suing the vaccine mandates, presented DOD medical billing data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) that paints a shockingly disturbing picture of the health of our service members in 2021.
It’s a complete disgrace that families have to sneak an effective remedy into a hospital. From Nannette Holt at The Epoch Times via zerohedge.com:
A Florida doctor says families of loved ones hospitalized with COVID-19 are resorting to desperate measures when approved treatments have failed.
And when it’s not too late, some have seen tremendous success by sneaking medications prohibited by hospitals to patients, says Eduardo Balbona, an independent internist in Jacksonville.
He’s helped dozens of seriously ill patients recover using ivermectin and other drugs and supplements not officially approved in the treatment of COVID-19, he says.
Hospitals receive payments from the federal government for treating patients with COVID-19. But those payments are tied to their use of approved treatments only, as outlined in the CARES Act. When there’s nothing left to try under those protocols, families naturally research alternatives, Balbona says, often learning about treatments touted by independent physicians around the country.
Hoping to try anything that might work, families around the country have filed lawsuits asking judges to intervene.
In some cases, judges have ordered hospitals to allow the use of other treatments, such as ivermectin. Some of those seriously ill patients have recovered. In other cases, judges have sided with hospitals and declined the families’ requests to try.
Imagine, early prevention with the right remedies dramatically cuts the Covid-19 death rate. Too many people have died from following the official protocols. From Meiling Lee at The Epoch Times via zerohedge.com:
A doctor who has been offering free telehealth services to COVID-19 patients during the pandemic says that early treatment for COVID-19 works, claiming that he has a 99.99 percent survival rate.
“We have a team of volunteer free doctors that donate their time to help treat these patients that come to us,” Dr. Ben Marble, the founder of myfreedoctor.com, an online medical consultation service, said at a roundtable discussion hosted by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) on Jan. 24.
He added, “We deliver the early treatment protocols to them as early as we can, and we have a 99.99 percent survival rate. So, I believe myfreedoctor.com, the free volunteered doctors have settled the science on this—early treatment works, period!”
Marble was answering Johnson’s question about what people can do if they or their loved ones have COVID-19.
People can visit the website myfreedoctor.com, create an account, and fill out a patient intake form if the doctors are accepting new patients for that day. One of the doctors will then reach out in less than 24 hours. With a huge demand for their services, the physicians say they can only “accept a certain number of patients each day.”
The Yamhill County Board of commissioners wants more balanced information on Covid, and Margaret Anna Alice gives it to them, in spades. From Margaret Anna Alice at margaretannaalice.substack.com:
On the Proposal to Include More Balanced COVID Information on the Yamhill County Public Health Website
“Science can flourish only in an atmosphere of free speech.”
I understand you will be meeting to discuss the inclusion of more balanced information on COVID at your website.
Lindsay Berschauer, Casey Kulla, and Mary Starrett, I applaud you for this effort and enthusiastically encourage you to honor the sacred process of scientific inquiry; respect the intellectual capacity and discernment of Oregonians; and provide full transparency regarding data, policymaking, and other COVID-related topics.
To cite another Einstein quote:
“A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.”
I would specifically like to request more balanced information and transparency about:
data on breakthrough infections
the tallying methodologies and changing goal posts for categorizing unvaccinated vs. vaccinated in reports on cases, hospitalizations, breakthrough infections, and deaths (e.g., “unvaccinated” may include those within the first 14 days post-vaccination, those without their second vaccination, those without a booster, those who were inoculated at a pharmacy or other vendor outside the Asante or Providence system, etc.)
testing protocols, including the PCR test cycle thresholds used since testing began
deaths “with” vs. “from” COVID
mortality and hospitalization data, including ages and comorbidities for COVID-classified deaths and hospitalizations
stories and testimonials of those injured or bereaved following COVID vaccination
resources and options for individuals who have become disabled or suffered the loss of loved ones following COVID vaccination as well as for those who have lost income due to the unconstitutional and coercive employer mandate
financial incentives provided to hospitals and other medical facilities for reporting COVID cases, hospitalizations, and deaths
financial incentives provided to educational institutions, school boards, employers, and other agencies for enforcing COVID policies
financial disincentives and other institutional pressures to suppress COVID vaccine–related injuries and deaths and discourage autopsies
training and awareness programs for doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals regarding the legal requirement to file VAERS reports documenting all post-vaccination injuries and fatalities
We are left with publications but no access to the underlying data on reasonable request. This is worrying for trial participants, researchers, clinicians, journal editors, policy makers, and the public. The journals that have published these primary studies may argue that they faced an awkward dilemma, caught between making the summary findings available quickly and upholding the best ethical values that support timely access to underlying data. In our view, there is no dilemma; the anonymised individual participant data from clinical trials must be made available for independent scrutiny.
Pharmaceutical companies are reaping vast profits without adequate independent scrutiny of their scientific claims. The purpose of regulators is not to dance to the tune of rich global corporations and enrich them further; it is to protect the health of their populations. We need complete data transparency for all studies, we need it in the public interest, and we need it now.
A huge thank you to BMJ (British Medical Journal), who again has shown the bravery and honesty to tell truth to power.
The American political system based on the separation of powers has held for now against the tyrannical developments that are sweeping away civil liberty in the “free West.” The US Supreme Court deep-sixed Biden’s mandate that employees of private businesses must be injected with the dangerous Covid “vaccine” despite the evidence that the “vaccine” does not protect against Covid but does cause injury and death. The Supreme Court ruled that the president is without statutory authority to issue such a mandate, an obvious ruling as in the US law is the responsibility of Congress.
Covid cases, hospitalization rates, and deaths are skyrocketing in highly vaccinated countries. From Alex Berenson at alexberenson.substack.com:
The world’s most mRNA vaccinated countries now have shockingly high Covid infection rates. Hospitalizations and deaths are rising fast too. The mRNA experiment needs to stop. Immediately.
Something is rotten in Denmark.
Where nearly 1 percent of the entire population just tested positive for Covid.
Not in a month. Or a week. In one day.
You read that right.
On Saturday, Israel had 84,000 new infections, the equivalent of almost 3 million in the United States. Infections in Israel have risen unthinkably fast since late December. They’re are up 100-fold in one month, driven by the collapse of booster protection and the arrival of the Omicron variant.
Israel is not alone. Denmark reported 42,000 cases yesterday, equal to almost 2.5 million in the United States. France, the second-largest country in Europe, reported the American equivalent of about 12 million new infections in the last week. Australia had a tremendous surge in cases earlier this month, though it seems to be subsiding for now.
Daily new infections in Israel:
These countries have very different population demographics and previous exposure to Covid. They even have very different weather; it is summer in Australia.
Here is a comprehensive graphical analysis of the recent large increase in deaths among 18 to 65 year olds. From Conan Milner at The Epoch Times via zerohedge.com:
nsurance companies are reporting a jump in death payouts due to a dramatic rise in the number of deaths. The rise in the death rate is being corroborated by death certificate data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The death rate is up by 40 percent from pre-pandemic levels according to Scott Davison, chief executive of OneAmerica, a major insurance company based in Indianapolis. During an online news conference on Dec. 30, 2021, Davison said the change was unprecedented.
“We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business,” he said.
“The data is consistent across every player in that business,” Davison said. “And what we saw just in the third quarter—we’re seeing it continue into the fourth quarter—is that death rates are up 40 percent over what they were pre-pandemic. Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be a 10 percent increase over pre-pandemic. So 40 percent is just unheard of.”
