And Then Everything Happens at Once, by James Howard Kunstler

Even for the remarkably stupid people who allowed themselves to be vaccinated without knowing anything about the vaccine, the truth is starting to dawn: the vaccine has limited effectiveness and carries real and serious dangers. Vaccinated people are getting Covid and dying from adverse effects. Perhaps the moment of recognition came when Biden said that the unvaccinated had to be vaccinated to protect the vaccinated. Huh? Even some of the dimmest among us realized they were being conned. From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:

This is a very nervous country, and for a good reason: the collective sense of reality has commenced a momentous shift, the compass is spinning wildly, things are shaking loose in the national brain-pan, the gaslight has lost its sheen, and the once-solid narrative is turning to vapor, starting with the unspooling riddles of Covid-19.

The numbers don’t add up, starting with the fact that when you combine the official registered Covid cases (people with acquired natural immunity) with the people who already had some kind of immunity from previous life-long coronavirus encounters, with the number of people vaccinated, you have a population supposedly way beyond herd immunity. Who’s getting sick now? Mostly people who are all vaxed up.

Contrary to the behavior and statements of public health officials and politicians, the news is out that the spike proteins produced by the vax’s mRNA genetic reprogramming are toxic agents that create disorder in the major organs and blood vessels. The news is also out, despite strenuous suppression, that early treatment of Covid-19 with a kit of cheap drugs defeats the disease. People must conclude that there is a malevolent purpose behind the suppression of early treatment. They may also conclude that the vaxes are poison.

Mandating the vaxes was an easily-predicted tactical blunder. Did “Joe Biden” and company not realize that threatening the livelihoods of a hundred million people might generate a whole lot of anger and resentment? Especially since those people have good reasons to believe the vax is harmful to them? Last week, an FDA advisory panel ruled against distributing mRNA booster shots among the general population over age 16 — with exceptions for the vaguely-defined “high risk” individuals over 65.

The ACLU, Prior to COVID, Denounced Mandates and Coercive Measures to Fight Pandemics, by Glenn Greenwald

What do you expect from an organization that read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution and consequently won’t fight for gun rights? From Glenn Greenwald at greenwald.substack.com:

In a New York Times op-ed this week, the group completely reversed its views, arguing vaccine mandates help civil liberties and bodily autonomy “is not absolute.”

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) surprised even many of its harshest critics this week when it strongly defended coercive programs and other mandates from the state in the name of fighting COVID. “Far from compromising them, vaccine mandates actually further civil liberties,” its Twitter account announced, adding that “vaccine requirements also safeguard those whose work involves regular exposure to the public.”

If you were surprised to see the ACLU heralding the civil liberties imperatives of “vaccine mandates” and “vaccine requirements” — whereby the government coerces adults to inject medicine into their own bodies that they do not want — the New York Times op-ed which the group promoted, written by two of its senior lawyers, was even more extreme. The article begins with this rhetorical question: “Do vaccine mandates violate civil liberties?” Noting that “some who have refused vaccination claim as much,” the ACLU lawyers say: “we disagree.” The op-ed then examines various civil liberties objections to mandates and state coercion — little things like, you know, bodily autonomy and freedom to choose — and the ACLU officials then invoke one authoritarian cliche after the next (“these rights are not absolute”) to sweep aside such civil liberties concerns:

[W]hen it comes to Covid-19, all considerations point in the same direction. . . . In fact, far from compromising civil liberties, vaccine mandates actually further civil liberties. . . . .

[Many claim that] vaccines are a justifiable intrusion on autonomy and bodily integrity. That may sound ominous, because we all have the fundamental right to bodily integrity and to make our own health care decisions. But these rights are not absolute. They do not include the right to inflict harm on others. . . . While vaccine mandates are not always permissible, they rarely run afoul of civil liberties when they involve highly infectious and devastating diseases like Covid-19. . . .

While limited exceptions are necessary, most people can be required to be vaccinated. . . . . Where a vaccine is not medically contraindicated, however, avoiding a deadly threat to the public health typically outweighs personal autonomy and individual freedom.

Slowly But Surely, The Stupid Is Failing, by Karl Denninger

Way too slowly, unfortunately. From Karl Denninger at market-ticker.org:

t is slowly dawning on all the different entities, including health care, that if they actually try to enforce jab mandates they’re going to be screwed.  Some of this is very visible already if you know where to look.  Hospitals report “staffed and available” ICU (and regular) beds.  For a bed to be usable legally-mandated staffing levels must be present.  Beds don’t “disappear” in a hospital; you don’t make the building larger or smaller, do you?

Nope — it’s all about staff levels.

Well?

There has already been a contraction — and the mandates aren’t, for the most part, in effect yet.  In a few places they’ve fired people.  In others they’re threatening to.  The problem, beyond being sued and losing, is that they can’t actually make good on the threats without immediately detonating any chance of being able to help the poor bastard who has a heart attack a week later — and people are already leaving over these demands.

Witness what just happened in Chicago.  Lightfoot mandated jabs for everyone in the schools; a large number of bus drivers quit.  Now what?  No school bus for your kids, that’s what!  The city is claiming Uber and Lyft will be provided; uh huh, good luck there because, guess what — neither mandates their drivers be jabbed!

And don’t kid yourself — those arguing that Jacobson, a USSC decision centering on smallpox from 1905, a disease with a 30% fatality rate, are flat-out wrong on several levels.

California Nurse Shortage Reaches “Crisis Level” As Vaccine Mandate Wards Off Traveling Nurses, by Tyler Durden

One thing the mainstream media hasn’t even tried to explain away or lie its way through is why so many medical professionals refuse to take the vaccines. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

As America’s hospital beds have again filled with sick COVID  patients, nurses and other healthcare workers have been quitting at the fastest rate since the early days of the pandemic, when nurses in some NYC hospitals were using garbage bags instead of PPE. Across the Internet, on subreddits and in Facebook groups, nurses have gathered to commiserate.

But it’s not just remote areas of Arkansas and Mississippi that are having problems. Local media in California have reported that across the Golden State, low staffing levels have reached a “crisis point”.

According to a story published by a newspaper in Bakersfield, in the past month, no fewer than four emergency room nurses have quit at one Eureka hospital.

And aside from the burnout and the pressure and the stress, nurses have also cited California’s mandatory vaccination rule as one reason they’re thinking about leaving the state. Traveling nurses have been turning down assignments in the Golden State at record rates  because they don’t want to get vaccinated – and the mandate hasn’t even taken effect yet.

Cole of Scripps Health said the state’s testing requirement, imposed last week, already has discouraged some out-of-state, traveling nurses from taking temporary jobs at California hospitals.

“If they don’t want to get vaccinated, they are turning down California assignments,” he said.

Here’s more according to Bakersfield.com:

Hospitals are struggling to comply with the state’s nurse staffing requirements as pandemic-induced burnout has exacerbated an already chronic nursing shortage nationwide.

But burnout isn’t the only thing compounding California’s nursing shortage: The state’s new vaccine mandate for health care workers is already causing headaches for understaffed hospitals before it is even implemented. Some traveling nurses – who are in high demand nationwide – are turning down California assignments because they don’t want to get vaccinated.

Politicians Have No Right Demanding ‘Vaccine Passports’ When the Vaccines Themselves Are Fraught With Risk, by Robert Bridge

It’s your life and your body, and you have the absolute right to determine what goes in it. From Robert Bridge at strategic-culture.org:

We must choose between signing up to a lifetime of imperfect shots or remain sort of social pariahs for the rest of our lives, Robert Bridge writes.

If it were possible to say with absolute scientific authority that vaccinations are the best way for the planet to escape from the Covid-19 death grip, then it might seem plausible – albeit still highly arguable – for governments to demand proof of ‘the mark’ for participating in the global economy. As things stand, however, nothing to date indicates that there are not more effective and reliable means of moving forward.

The relentless push for vaccine passports by opportunistic authoritarians around the globe took a broadside this week as Israeli researchers discovered what had been suspected by many all along: natural immunity acquired via infection, as opposed to vaccinations, provides the best defense against Covid-19 and its seemingly endless array of Greek-coded variants.

The study, which examined up to 32,000 individuals, found that the risk of developing Covid-19 was 27 times higher among the vaccinated (with the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine), and the risk of hospitalization eight times higher, as compared to those individuals who had acquired natural immunity.

Equally shocking, individuals who were administered two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine were almost six-times more likely to contract the Delta variation and seven-times more likely to have symptomatic disease than those who recovered from the disease naturally, according to the study, which is up for peer review.

GM Says: Ihre Papieren, Bitte! by Eric Peters

Major corporations have become arms of the state. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

It used to be governments that demanded to see your “papers.” Today, it’s corporations. Which function as governments, without the bother of elections – without the hassle of having to pass laws that might be reviewed (and rejected) by courts.

Instead, policies – which have the force and effect of laws – and which you cannot appeal. There is only the choice: Comply – or be fired.

Which wouldn’t be so terrible were it not for the terrible fact that corporations – a relative handful, effectively – now own the country, in the sense that is becoming very difficult for anyone to find employment that isn’t corporate. The tentacles of the octopus reach into every nook and cranny. Even businesses that aren’t corporations often have to deal with them – as suppliers, as their major customers.

And thereby, the corporations set policies which become very difficult to avoid.

The genius of this deserves grudging respect. It is the realization of Mussolini’s dictum about “Everything in the State, nothing outside the State, nothing against the State” – via corporations, which exploit their disingenuous status as “private” enterprises to audaciously impose that which the state dare not even propose.

GM has just imposed a requirement that every salaried employee must produce papers to prove they have rolled up their sleeve and been injected with the Jab that the corporation decrees they must submit to as a condition of their employment. That is to say, do this – or be fired.

Diaper Report 8/3/21, by Eric Peters

The Covid lies are wearing thin. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

There is an ugly rumor going around that Uncle Joe is going to pull an Uncle Joe (Stalin) in the near future – this week or next – and attempt to “lock down” the entire country, in order to stop the spread of normalcy, a greatly disturbing trend in certain quarters.

People have been showing their faces – and refusing to roll up their sleeves. This threatens the unlimited power of the Krankleiters and Gesundheitsfuhrers of the political left (and their GOP lickspittles who moo whenever the left says boo) and for that reason must be suppressed by any means necessary.

The first was an attempt to resurrect the Fear, via the variants. Delta Epsilon semi-moron. But it’s not working as well this time as the first time. A real-life case of the Boy Who Cried Wolf. The first time, the townspeople respond to the alarm; after a series of false alarms, they began to respond differently, with increasing disinterest. There is no wolf. They know the cry is for attention, nothing more.

Too many lies, too obviously lies. People begin to tire of the lies – and the liars.

“Fully vaccinated people don’t have to wear a mask,” said Uncle Joe. And now he says they do, again. His creepy little docktor said there’s no need to wear a mask – and then said wear two.

Millions will die – and didn’t.

The “vaccines” are “safe” – and yet, kill. At least 6,000 so far on the low end – 10,000-plus on the high end (of the VAERS reporting system) with the key difference being that some who died of the “vaccine” were previously healthy and young whereas almost all who died of the sickness the “vaccines” supposedly immunize against were old and often chronically unhealthy.

The “vaccines” are “effective” – and yet 70 percent of the new “cases” in the case of Provincetown, MA were “fully vaccinated.” It is not an isolated “case,” either. Israel is reporting 40 percent of new “cases” are “fully vaccinated” and similar numbers are being reported in England and elsewhere.

What is the point of taking a “vaccine” that does not “stop the spread”?

Why Is a Toxic Vaccine Being Mandated? by Paul Craig Roberts

There is something very nefarious behind the official campaign to get everyone vaccinated with a vaccine that doesn’t prevent the disease it’s supposed to address and which may have some severe after effects, like death. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:

The Covid Vaccine Is Now Causing Its Own Pandemic

According to this news report—https://sputniknews.com/us/202107301083490458-delta-covid-19-variant-shed-by-vaccinated-people-spreads-like-chickenpox-cdc-document-suggests/ —an internal CDC document has concluded that Covid vaccinated people shed the delta variant and spread it as easy as Chickenpox.

So what is the CDC’s solution?  A call for universal vaccination as the best tool against the delta variant.

In other words, the low grade morons in charge of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend fighting the outbreak by vaccinating more people with a vaccine that does not protect against the delta variant but does cause vaccinated people to spread the virus by shedding!

What we have here is medical incompetence in service to vaccine profits and, little doubt, hidden agendas.

Diaper Report 7/27/21, by Eric Peters

For many people, losing weight and getting healthy would lower their chances of contracting Covid far more than masks, social distancing, lockdowns, or vaccines. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

You can run, but you can’t hide goes the saying. True enough. But you can refuse. And you can quit.

That is the advice I have given a good friend of mine upon hearing the news that the Department of Veterans Affairs will require workers to submit to medical experiments using FDA-unapproved “vaccines” as the price of their continued employment.

My friend is a nurse who works at a VA hospital. He needs a “vaccine” like a sheep needs a wool sweater. This friend is my lifting buddy and he’s as hale and hearty as an oak and neither old nor obese – though many of his co-workers are the former. And – wouldn’t you know it – it is precisely these people who are the most adamant that he be “vaccinated.” 

This is one of the many halting inversions of CoronaMonoMania. People who clearly make no effort to be healthy – who guzzle six packs of soda daily, do not exercise, eat grotesque quantities of junk food and often smoke on top of it – finger-wag at people like my buddy, who isn’t “at risk” and presents no risk to them – because he chooses to be healthy by taking care of his health.

These fatties – sorry, but honest language is often necessary language – could greatly reduce their risk of getting sick (from anything) and from getting chronically sick (as from diabetes, hypertension and heart disease- all of which magnify the risk of the ‘Rona) if they would just drop the extra 50 pounds they’re lugging around their waists.
