They’ll Use the Welfare State to Get Compliance on Vaccine Mandates, by Ryan McMaken

Nothing from the government is ever free. From Ryan McMaken at mises.org:

A Democratic state lawmaker in Illinois has introduced legislation requiring unvaccinated residents to pay out-of-pocket for healthcare services. It’s all part of an effort to come up with new and creative ways to punish people who refuse to get the covid jab. WBBM Radio in Chicago reports:

[Jonathan] Carroll’s legislation would amend the state’s insurance code so that “a person who is eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and chooses not to be vaccinated shall pay for health care expenses out-of-pocket if the person becomes hospitalized because of COVID-19 symptoms.”

In other words, Carroll is trying to ensure that the unvaccinated will be denied health insurance for covid treatments, even in cases where private insurance is already bought and paid for. Moreover, intervening in private insurance won’t even be necessary in many cases, since one-third of the population is already receiving government-funded healthcare.

This policy is quite remarkable coming from a progressive like Carroll. After all, for decades, we’ve been hearing from the Left that “healthcare is a human right” and that it must be provided to anyone and everyone at taxpayer expense. Anything short of universal state subsidized healthcare, we’ve been told, is unacceptable.

Yet, apparently, the mandatory vaccine advocates—found largely on the left, of course—are so obsessed with forcing mandatory vaccines on the entire population that they’re now looking for ways to deny people healthcare.

But we should have seen this coming. Until recently, the Left has also claimed it wants universal employment and a “chicken in every pot.” But since the Biden administration hatched the idea of tying employment to vaccines earlier this year, advocates of vaccine mandates now want to you be destitute and jobless if you refuse the jab.

What It Means To Be Human, by Raúl Ilargi Meijer

Cowering in fear may keep one alive, but it’s not living as a human. From Raúl Ilargi Meijer at theautomaticearth.com:

What’s the difference between Julian Assange being robbed of his freedom for 12 years and you being robbed of yours for two? From a legal point of view, very little. Because both are based on, “justified by”, no existing laws. They are based on people who happen to have grabbed power, interpreting existing law in their own favor, aided and abetted by their respective judicial branches.

Assange being told he can have no life, or freedom, today, despite never having been formally accused, let alone convicted, of a crime, is no different than someone in Austria threatened with being imprisoned because they don’t want to be vaxxed with an experimental substance. Neither will have broken an existing and valid law, still both will end up behind bars.

I support people who say it should be everyone’s own choice whether they want to be vaccinated with mRNA or not, but I doubt that more than 2% know even what that is, what it does, and what it still may do to them, and to their children. Informed consent is not just some abstract idea, even if it is treated as such.

The vast majority of people who are coerced into being jabbed, are undoubtedly the same ones who pay no attention to what is happening to Julian Assange. They just read and watch the media they always have, and their media tells them only what the owners and sponsors of the channels and papers want to let them know.

The KISS of Death, by Eric Peters

A rock icon and symbol of counterculture resistance becomes a spokesman for pharma. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

Once upon a time, rock musicians were outliers who both played unconventionally and defied conventional wisdom – the false “wisdom” of The Man. They posed questions via chords and via their lyrics. By their attitude. By their look.

And now, this.

Gene Simmons – the bass player and “demon” of the ’70s rock-glam band KISS – has publicly declared that those of us who question the wisdom of being injected with the drugs being aggressively pushed at us by a tag team of pharmaceutical cartels and government, using corporations as the enforcement mechanism – are “criminal.”

We are “the enemy.”

This is very interesting, coming from Simmons – whose real name is Chaim Witz, born in Israel. The point of which being that Witz is Jewish. And for that reason ought to be especially sensitive to the wholesale indicting of people as an infected and dangerous class, deserving of  . . . disinfection.

His mother, Flora, survived the Holocaust. Her son now seeks to visit one upon us.

The now-elderly Simmons – he is in his 70s – eructs as follows:

“You are not allowed to infect anybody just because you think you’ve got rights that are delusional.”

The elderly sometimes have difficulty thinking clearly, so let’s try to help Chaim.

No one is asserting the right to “infect” anyone. What is being asserted is the right to not be presumed infectious – a “dangerous bacillus,” as the people who sought to disinfect people like Witz and his mother once put it.

It is precisely out of concern about their health that millions of people want nothing to do with the drugs being pushed. Which do not prevent infection but merely (supposedly) temporarily ameliorate the symptoms of infection.

Hence the need for “boosters” – ad infinitum.

This is admitted to by the purveyors of the drugs and the entities pushing them.

They don’t stop you from getting – or giving – the infection.

But just keep on taking them.

Silent House, by Hardscrabble Farmer

A beautifully written article about families and relationships in the age of Covid. From Hardscrabble Farmer at theburningplatform.com:

I got the call that my cousin had passed just after dark. I had been butchering a hog all day by myself and I was tired and needed a shower, but all I could think of was reaching out to his sons. My younger cousin had been looking after him for the last two years as he slowly disappeared into his dementia and I knew how hard this was going to hit him. I made the call from the bedroom in the dark and stood up against the windows looking out at the leafless trees and distant, rolling hills enveloped in a lead-colored mist.

I hadn’t spoken to him since the last family funeral- we are ten years part and by the time I was heading out into the world he was just hitting middle school- and so we never really bonded closely, but we were familiars to one another over the span of our own lives, family. The phone rang half a dozen times and then went to voice mail so I began to leave my heartfelt condolences. After a few halting words that sounded stiff, the phone picked up and I heard his voice across the distant miles and months between us, desperate and broken.

I repeated what I had just said into the void a moment earlier and then he began to speak, not really to me at first, just a torrent of anguish and grief that rambled on from the horrible treatment of the hospital and worse yet the insurance syndicate and the various agents of Medicare and Medicaid and their endless abuses, to the deep and profound loss he had just experienced, and the sudden hole that had just been left in the middle of his life.

On Covid vaccines, diabetic ketoacidosis, and the death of Dan Kaminsky, by Alex Berenson

You can get ostracized and cancelled for even suggesting that a vaccine recipient’s illness or illnesses might have been brought on by the vaccine. From Alex Berenson at theburningplatform.com:

When people die, refusing to ask hard questions about what might have killed them is not heroic. It’s the opposite.

Dan Kaminsky died in San Francisco at the age of 42 on April 23, 2021.

He a computer security expert, well-known in that tight-knit community, with almost 100,000 followers on Twitter.

He was also a strong supporter of mRNA Covid vaccinations. On April 16, he tweeted that they were “astoundingly clever.” And on April 12, he proudly reported that he had been “vaxxed!”

Eleven days later he was dead.

I can’t remember how I came across Kaminsky’s death, but I did. I checked to see if he had publicly reported being vaccinated; he had. And so I tweeted on April 25 (those were the days before Twitter had censored me):

“So another well-known person in his forties – not a true celebrity, but someone with a sizable Twitter following – “died suddenly” Friday. No cause of death given, and his family wants privacy. These cases have popped with disturbing frequency since December.”

Debunking Biden’s Claim We Must “Protect The Vaccinated From The Unvaccinated,” by Ryan McMaken

It’s not hard to debunk what Biden says, most of it, like the quote in the title, is absurd on its face. From Ryan McMaken at mises.org:

The official line on vaccines is that they are extremely effective at protecting against serious illness. And yet these same people are also claiming that the unvaccinated are a major threat to the vaccinated.

More specifically, President Biden claimed on September 10 that vaccine mandates were to “protect the vaccinated workers from unvaccinated workers.”

In other words, it is claimed that vaccines are remarkably effective, and that the vaccinated must also be protected from the unvaccinated. How can both claims be true at the same time? They can’t. The idea that vaccinated people are being frequently harmed by the unvaccinated is a complete fabrication, based on the promandate crowd’s own mainstream data.

As Robert Fellner points out, according to the official data,

The odds of a vaccinated person dying from COVID are 1 in 137,000.

The fatality rate for seasonal flu, meanwhile, is at least 100 times greater than that. The chance of dying in an automobile accident is over 1,000 times greater. Dog attacks, bee stings, sunstroke, cataclysmic storms, and a variety of other background risks we accept as a normal part of life are all more deadly than the risk COVID poses to the vaccinated.

Moreover, the risk of death to vaccinated people is similar to the risk of having an adverse side effect to the vaccine. And as the spokesmen for Big Pharma and the regime never tire of telling us, you shouldn’t care about having an adverse reaction, because it is so very rare and inconsequential.

So by that reasoning, vaccinated people shouldn’t worry about getting very ill from covid. Those cases are just as rare as the so, so rare cases of adverse reaction.

Triple-Vaxed Israel Is Break COVID Case Records, by Stuart Winer

When Israel goes to quadruple-vaccines they’ll break still more records. From Stuart Winer at anti-empire.com:

Getting there in hospitalizations and deaths as well

Health Ministry Director-General Nachman Ash said Tuesday that the current wave of coronavirus infections is surpassing anything seen in previous outbreaks and that he is disappointed that a recent downward trend appeared to be reversing.

Ash’s remarks via video call to the Knesset Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee came as Health Ministry figures showed that over 10,000 new COVID-19 cases were diagnosed the day before and that the positive test rate was climbing.

Pointing out that there is an average of 8,000 new infections each day, with occasional peaks over 10,000, he said, “That is a record that did not exist in the previous waves,” including the massive third wave at the end of last year.

Why Do Public Health Agencies Reject Natural Immunity? by Joseph Mercola

There’s no money in natural immunity. From Joseph Mercola at lewrockwell.com:

According to U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, if you’ve already recovered from a bout of COVID-19, the full-spectrum immunity mounted by your body may not be enough to prevent reinfection with the Delta variant, so your best bet is to get the COVID shot. Mid-August 2021 he told CNN:1

“… what we’ve understood, actually, from the studies about natural immunity, we are seeing more and more data that tells us that while you get some protection from natural infection, it’s not nearly as strong as what you get from the vaccine, especially with the Delta variant, which is the hardiest and most contagious variant we’ve seen to date. We need all the protection that we can get. That’s why the vaccines are so effective.”

Data Analysis Claims Unvaccinated More Prone to Reinfection

August 6, 2021, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a case control study2,3 claiming that unvaccinated people are “more than twice as likely to be reinfected with COVID-19 than those who were fully vaccinated after initially contracting the virus.”

The study used data reported to Kentucky’s National Electronic Disease Surveillance System (NEDSS) to assess SARS-CoV-2 reinfection rates in Kentucky during May through June 2021 among those who’d had confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection between March and December 2020.

The NEDSS data were then imported into a REDCap database that tracks new COVID-19 cases. A case-patient was defined as a resident with laboratory-confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection in 2020 and a subsequent positive test result during May 1, 2021, through June 30, 2021.

California Joins The Long List Of States, Companies, & Sports Leagues Bribing Americans To Get Vaccinated, by Tyler Durden

There’s something wrong when the authorities are bribing people to get a vaccination they don’t want. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

With demand for COVID-19 vaccines in the US waning quickly, both individual states and the federal government are pulling out all the stops to try and convince as many American adults as possible to consent to being vaccinated. Some states have pushed promotions offering free money, free beer, and free doughnuts, among other offers. Oregon is even offering a $1 million lottery for which only the vaccinated are eligible.

As more states embrace these types of incentives, California just announced that it was hopping on the vaccination lottery bandwagon Thursday evening by offering 10 vaccinated residents  the chance to win $1.5 million each, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Thursday, while another 30 residents will win $50K cash prizes.

The program is being announced as California struggles to boost its vaccination rate (while the national rate of adults who have received at least one dose has just passed 60%).

More than 288 million doses of the vaccine have been distributed across the US, but the daily rate for patients receiving both their first and second doses is slowing.

Gain of Functioned, by Eric Peters

The maskers’ fears of anti-maskers will just transfer over to anti-vaccers. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

Why do the Needlers – many of them – insist that others be Needled, too?

Aren’t they now “safe”? Shouldn’t they be unworried?

The expectation – the demand – appears to be absolute invulnerability. That any chance the Needled might still get sick, however minuscule, is ferociously unacceptable and justifies the imposition  – on others – of whatever is necessary to make them feel safe.

Including the Needling of others. As many Needlings as are “necessary” – in perpetuity.

Does it have a familiar ring?

Before the Orange Man failed – and then succeeded, in getting his operation up to “warp speed” – these same people were demanding that everyone else wear the Face Diaper they were claiming “kept them safe” – belying their faith in just that. If it did “keep them safe”  then why worry about others not wearing the thing?

Well, it might not be 100 percent effective.

There is a chance you – or “someone” – might be sick and that you might get others, even the Face Diapered, sick – and for that reason everyone must always wear a Diaper. Even after having been Needled.

For the sake of 100 percent obedience, which is what this is really all about.

Marketed  – using manufactured guilt – as being necessary – in order to make the Diapered – and now the Needled – “feel safe.”

This is not reason. It is neurosis. Unashamed, belligerent. Empowered.

Without end.

There will always be a chance that “someone might” – whatever the fear asserted happens to be.
