After Grade-Rigging Scandal, Baltimore City Schools No Longer Holding Back Failing Students

After Grade-Rigging Scandal, Baltimore City Schools No Longer Holding Back Failing Students

A new grading policy, put forth by the Baltimore City School Board, Tuesday, will allow students who are struggling and failing classes to move up to the next grade level due to the virus pandemic, according to local news Fox 45

Instead of holding back students, Baltimore City Public School System's (BCPSS) new grading policy will push up struggling students who failed classes during the pandemic and have their educational status tested during the fall semester to determine what skills they missed during virtual learning classes. 

Chief Academic Officer Joan Dabrowski said the new policy is intended to "avoid the punitive approach of failing students." 

"This is not about a failure, but it is about unfinished learning and giving multiple opportunities, multiple onramps for young people to complete that ... learning," BCPSS CEO Sonja Santelises said.

High school students will have their failing grades swapped out for a "No Credit," and for lower schools, a "Fail" will be replaced with "Not Completed." 

About 78,000 students are enrolled across the metro area. More than 65% of students in secondary schools and 50% of Elementary Schools failed at least one class.

Fox 45's investigative arm, "Project Baltimore," has spent several years investigating BCPSS corrupt school system. Grade-rigging has been well known before the pandemic, but now it's out in the open. At least now, school officials can deflect their failures on the pandemic. 

Earlier this year, we pointed out how a high school student who almost graduated near the top half of his class failed almost every class. There have been attendance issues, such as attendance at high schools dropping to a 13-year low. More than a dozen schools have zero students proficient in math. 

BCPSS officials no longer have to be covert about grade rigging as they can openly blame the pandemic.

Number of COVID cases in Delhi crashes after mass distribution of ivermectin



(AMERICAN THINKER) – India has been suffering horrendously from COVID of late, and the complete death toll may never be known. But in the capital city of Delhi, mass distribution of ivermectin began and the results have been stunning. This result is consistent with the results of mass distribution of ivermectin in Mexico City.

Yet, most doctors in this country refuse to prescribe ivermectin, and most hospitals in this country refuse to administer it even to seriously ill COVID patients, citing the lack of double-blind studies – which are expensive and time consuming and which yield no big profits for anyone since ivermectin is a generic drug with no patent protection.

A Buffalo, NY woman had to sue in order to receive ivermectin therapy while hospitalized, forced to bear considerable legal fees. After a judge ordered that she receive it, she recovered and left the hospital.

Missouri Man Sentenced For Role In Largest "Organic Food" Fraud In American History

Missouri Man Sentenced For Role In Largest "Organic Food" Fraud In American History

A north Missouri businessman who was involved in the largest organic fraud scheme in American history has been sentenced to probation and fined. According to KTTN, federal prosecutors in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, sentenced Steven Whiteside of Chilicothe to three years probation and a fine of 45-thousand dollars.

Two other Northwest Missouri men were sentenced to federal prison for their roles in the 142-million dollar grain fraud scheme, which federal prosecutors describe as the “Field of Schemes.”

Steven Whiteside of Chillicothe pleaded guilty in December to signing a document that allowed Randy Constant to sell conventionally raised grain as certified organic and receive a higher premium.

Federal prosecutors say Whiteside received $177-thousand for grain that Constant resold to animal feed producers. They had asked for a one-year term in prison for Whiteside. His defense attorney argued he received a lesser sentence for having a clean record and having family obligations.

Constant, also of Chillicothe, killed himself in 2019, three days after being sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for wire fraud. Four other farmers, one from Missouri and three from Nebraska, received prison sentences for their role in the long-running scheme.

Back in December, the DOJ said that Constant admitted the fraudulent scheme involved at least $142,433,475 in grain sales, and the vast majority of those sales were fraudulent. From 2010 to 2017, Constant misled customers into thinking they were buying certified organic grain when the grain he was selling was not organic. Constant admitted falsely telling customers the grain he sold was grown on his certified organic fields in Nebraska and Missouri when the grain was not organic either because he purchased the grain from other growers, the certified organic fields were sprayed with unauthorized chemicals, or organic grain was mixed with non-organic grain. As part of the plea, Constant also agreed to forfeit $128,190,128 in proceeds from the fraudulent scheme.

Constant’s grain was mostly used as animal feed, primarily for chickens and cattle. That livestock was then sold as organic meat or products from the livestock were sold as organic products. Because of Constant’s fraud, most of the livestock that was fed his grain was not organic, causing millions of consumers to purchase what they thought was organic meat for a premium price across the country.

It is unclear how much of the billions in exorbitantly expensive "organic" food sold every year by the likes of Whole Foods and other overpriced outlets, is just plain, ordinary, off-the-shelf "inorganic" produce with a "ceritifed" sticker slapped on it to part the gullible with their money.

COVID-19 lab leak denials were 'willful efforts to deceive'


Lab worker at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China (Video screenshot)

[Editor's note: This story originally was published by Real Clear Politics.]

By J. Peder Zane
Real Clear Politics

If only we lived in fairytale land, where the little boy’s observation that the emperor has no clothes snapped the people back to reality. In modern America, however, the exposure of delusional prevarications is met with a shrug by the powers that be, who simply move on to the peddling of other untruths.

For more than a year, government experts and their stenographers at our most prestigious media outlets denied what was clear to anybody with a modicum of common sense – that the COVID-19 pandemic that had originated in Wuhan, China, could have originated in the Wuhan lab where scientists were performing dangerous research into coronaviruses.

Without solid proof for their pet theory – that the virus spread from animals to humans – they dismissed any and all suggestions that the deadly pathogen might have leaked from the lab as the ramblings of racist conspiracists. Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms enforced this party line by canceling those who dared to question it.

That narrative was challenged earlier this month when former New York Times journalist Nicholas Wade wrote an authoritative article detailing why it was more likely that irresponsible scientists, rather than infected animals, spawned the disease that has killed at least 3.5 million human beings worldwide, nearly 600,000 of them Americans. As a conscientious reporter, Wade did not claim he had solved the riddle of COVID-19, only that the long disparaged lab leak theory was a strong possibility.

Like the fabled boy courageous enough to note the emperor’s nakedness, Wade’s piece has finally opened the floodgates on the search for truth. After initially shutting down an inquiry into the lab leak theory – and describing Donald Trump as racist and xenophobic for alleging the Chinese might be responsible for the pandemic -- President Biden has reversed course, calling for a new investigation into COVID’s origins.

Meanwhile, the scales have suddenly fallen from the eyes of many celebrated journalists who long disparaged or ignored the lab leak theory. One of the most damning pieces was written by Donald G. McNeil Jr., who had been leading the New York Times’ COVID coverage until he was forced to resign from the paper earlier this year over racially charged remarks he’d made years before.

Stunningly, McNeil admitted that there was plenty of evidence for the lab leak early on. He admitted that many of the articles Wade cited to support his argument were “not new to the most intense and well-educated followers of this topic, but new to the greater public debate.” We didn’t know because writers like McNeil did not emphasize them. McNeil linked to a series of pieces published April 22, 2020, June 2020, and November 2020.

How did McNeil and others get it so wrong? A big reason was that many leaders of the scientific community – in an abdication of their obligation to open inquiry – claimed they had solved the puzzle. In February 2020, before the United States had acknowledged its first recorded death from COVID, 27 top virologists published a letter in the British medical journal the Lancet that “strongly condemn[ed] conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin.” That March, the American journal Nature Medicine published a letter signed by 30 scientists stating, “Our analyses clearly show that SARS-CoV-2 is not a laboratory construct.”

These assurances were premature. While we can forgive journalists for taking the word of their sources, let’s note that reporters are not supposed to take dictation. Their job is to challenge claims, even from experts. This responsibility became ever more pressing as counter-evidence emerged. We don’t know why scientists and science writers were so intent on shutting down avenues of inquiry, but McNeil’s piece suggests the animus was political.

“For about a year,” he wrote, “[the view of those Lancet and Nature Medicine researchers] was the general wisdom among science writers. The ‘lab-leak theory’ migrated back to the far right where it had started — championed by the folks who brought us Pizzagate, the Plandemic, Kung Flu, Q-Anon, Stop the Steal, and the January 6 Capitol invasion. It was tarred by the fact that everyone backing it seemed to hate not just Democrats and the Chinese Communist Party, but even the Chinese themselves. It spawned racist rumors like ‘Chinese labs sell their dead experimental animals in food markets.’ ”

McNeil’s former Times colleague, David Leonhardt, concurred, characterizing the dismissal of the lab leak theory as a “classic example of groupthink, exacerbated by partisan polarization.”

As we hope for a full and honest account of COVID-19’s origins, we must recognize that it is not just the story of a virus, but of the cancer that is metastasizing in our fundamental institutions. We now have clear evidence that the people who largely run our country -- the mainstream media, the lords of Silicon Valley, the leaders of the Democrat party – grossly misled the country on the two biggest stories of the last five years: Trump/Russia and COVID-19.

Theirs were not honest mistakes, but willful efforts to deceive. They were not interested in finding the truth but in delegitimizing their political enemies. Exposure of their failures has not led to humbling self-examination. Instead they are sticking to playbook – brooking no dissent while they smear and punish those brave enough to challenge them – as they insist upon the absolute truth of other bogus claims: that America is riddled with systemic racism and white supremacy, that the Jan. 6 protest at the Capitol was an insurrection aimed at toppling the government, that climate change is an existential threat to life on the planet.

These misleaders have lost their claim to moral authority. But, for the time being at least, they still have power.

Physicians forbidden from questioning official health guides



(NOQ REPORT) – When you visit your physician, you hope to be given unbiased information that will best support your health – nothing less, nothing more. If a physician is unable to speak freely, this independent relationship between doctor and patient ceases to exist. In the past, illegal marketing, gifts and bribes from drug companies were frontrunners in eroding doctors’ integrity – and patients’ trust in them.

Now, with censorship in the name of COVID-19 ramping up to unprecedented levels, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), which regulates the practice of medicine in Ontario, has issued a statement prohibiting physicians from making comments or providing advice that goes against the official narrative.

Actor Clifton Duncan shared the Orwellian message on Twitter, urging his followers to “Read this. Now. And then share it as much as you can.” Because, equally as disturbing as the notion of publicly dictating to physicians what they’re allowed to say, is the fact that, as Duncan said, the statement has a glaring omission, “The health and well-being of the patient.”

US Set For Epic Labor Market Experiment: Red States Vs Blue States

US Set For Epic Labor Market Experiment: Red States Vs Blue States

According to JPMorgan's Daniel Silver, as of this moment some 23 - all republican - states have announced at least some form of early reduction in pandemic-related unemployment insurance benefits ahead of the September expiration at the federal level. These programs, he suggests, are likely limiting labor supply, generating a potential economic argument for ending these programs early.

A glance at the following chart - which shows the number of US job opening vs the number of Americans who remain on some form of Pandemic unemployment benefit, would suggest that Silver is right.

So, while the left are desperately gaslighting that this is a skills or geographic mismatch, the chart above makes it clear that paying people to stay home is not good for growth (or social stability).

Which is why 23 (Republican) states have listened to their business owners and started to cut those benefits. In fact, as Mike Shedlock notes, that means around 3.5 million Americans will come off Pandemic emergency benefits in the next few weeks.

And since Democrats will likely not end UI benefits any time soon - or ever, if they could -  this sets up the US economy to become an epic real-time economic experiment, one where everyone can keep track of the unemployment across in Red states (most of which have ended their UI benefits), and blue states where claims will keep potential workers at home, pressuring unemployment rates.

As noted above, all of the 23 states announcing early-UI benefit terminations have Republican governors and as is clear from the charts below, many of these states have tighter labor markets and stronger earnings growth (naturally, not all).

So the trade off appears to be one of political pandering vs practical economics - lower unemployment rates in Red states even as the hoped for tradeoff - higher wage growth - is largely missing, with average hourly earnings in red states also slightly higher on average.

By way of early confirmation of our thesis that government handouts are repressing the recovery by encouraging people not to work, according to an analysis published this week by job site Indeed, job searches jumped by 5% the day each state announced its intent to pull out of the federal programs.

In May, job search activity on Indeed increased, relative to the national trend, in states that announced they would end federal UI benefits prematurely.

We will be closely watching the unemployment rates of the red and blue states going forward as a real-time test of whether paying people to stay home (something not even the USSR did) is indeed the best way forward for Americans... or if it will create an idiocracy.

Report: Fauci kept Trump in the dark, argued for experiments that can create pandemics


“It’s a nasty virus if you’re a mouse,” said Emory University virologist John Steel in a November 2014 interview with Science Magazine.

Steel was referring to PRS, a strain of influenza that he and his team had been studying until an order from the National Institutes of Health interrupted their work.

Concerned that gain-of-function research, the process of altering a pathogen to make it more lethal and more easily transmissible in order to develop vaccines and other remedies to eradicate it, was too risky, the NIH placed a moratorium on the practice in October 2014. Federal funding would no longer be available for research "involv[ing] tweaking influenza, MERS, and SARS viruses."

In December 2017, the NIH announced they were lifting the Obama-era ban on the use of federal funds for gain-of-function research. The organization issued a statement that stated: "GOF research is important in helping us identify, understand, and develop strategies and effective countermeasures against rapidly evolving pathogens that pose a threat to public health."

Investigative reporter Sharri Markson, the author of a forthcoming book entitled, "What Really Happened In Wuhan," has been following the COVID story closely.

She reports that Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), failed to notify the appropriate Trump Administration officials of this development. Markson wrote: "An investigation by The Weekend Australian has also confirmed Dr Fauci ... did not alert senior White House officials before lifting the ban on gain-of-function research in 2017."

China's leaders must marvel "how in western liberal democracies a disease that attacks our respiratory system can do so much damage to rational thought as well, and how hatred for a political opponent can triumph over concerns for the lives of others." 🔥

— Sharri Markson (@SharriMarkson) May 28, 2021

The Weekend Australian spoke to "multiple" Trump administration insiders who confirmed that Fauci had not briefed them on the NIH decision to restore funding for gain-of-function research.

“It kind of just got rammed through," one official told the publication. “I think there’s truth in the narrative that the (National Security Council) staff, the president, the White House chief-of-staff, those people were in the dark that he was switching back on the research.”

According to the report, the paper "also confirmed that neither Mike Pompeo, the then-director of the Central Intelligence Agency, nor National Security Council member Matthew Pottinger, was briefed."

Markson also discovered a paper Fauci had published in the American Society for Microbiology in October 2012 in which he expressed his support for gain-of-function research. He considered that the benefits exceeded the risk of a pandemic.

Fauci wrote, “In an unlikely but conceivable turn of events, what if that scientist becomes infected with the virus, which leads to an outbreak and ultimately triggers a pandemic? Many ask reasonable questions: given the possibility of such a scenario -- however remote -- should the initial experiments have been performed and/or published in the first place, and what were the processes involved in this decision?

“Scientists working in this field might say -- as indeed I have said -- that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks," Fauci said.

“We cannot expect those who have these concerns to simply take us, the scientific community, at our word that the benefits of this work outweigh the risks, nor can we ignore their calls for greater transparency, their concerns about conflicts of interest, and their efforts to engage in a dialog about whether these experiments should have been performed in the first place."

“Those of us in the scientific community who believe in the merits of this work have the responsibility to address these concerns thoughtfully and respectfully,” he added.

Up until two weeks ago, Fauci has insisted that COVID had a natural origin, that it jumped from an animal to a human. He now admits that it may have escaped from a lab.

During a Senate Health Committee hearing held in early May, Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky asked Fauci if NIAID funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which Fauci categorically denied.

"Yet papers published as late as last year in American peer-­reviewed academic journals that include WIV researchers – including its prominent virologist Shi Zhengli – disclose that work on coronaviruses had been funded by at least three NIH grants," according to the report in the Australian.

The NIH did provide a grant (or a series of grants) to a nonprofit called EcoHealth Alliance which was connected to the WIV. EcoHealth, in turn, provided funding to the WIV.

The fiery exchange between Fauci and Paul can be viewed below:

The video immediately went viral, which quickly drew intense media attention to both Fauci himself and the question of whether or not the U.S. funded gain-of-function research at the WIV.

Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported on a State Department document which revealed that three researchers from the Wuhan lab had fallen ill in November 2019 and were hospitalized “with symptoms consistent with both Covid-19 and common seasonal illness.”

The document had been issued by then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Jan. 15. There were two other interesting pieces of information in the document.

The first item concerned "WIV Research on 'RaTG13' and 'gain of function': Starting in at least 2016, WIV researchers studied RaTG13, the bat coronavirus identified by the WIV in January 2020 as its closest sample to SARS-CoV-2 (96.2% similar). Since the outbreak, the WIV has not been transparent nor consistent about its work with RaTG13 or other similar viruses, including possible 'gain of function' experiments to enhance transmissibility or lethality.

And the second involved WIV's "secret links" to Military Research: "Despite the WIV presenting itself as a civilian institution, the WIV has collaborated on publications and secret projects with China’s military. The WIV has engaged in classified research, including laboratory animal experiments, on behalf of the Chinese military since at least 2017."

Why You Should Wait Out the Wild Housing Market

How COVID Vaccines Can Cause Blood Clots and More


February 28, 2021, Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a retired professor, microbiologist and infectious disease and immunology specialist, along with several other doctors and scientists who have formed Doctors for COVID Ethics, sent a letter1 to the European Medicines Agency (EMA), warning about the potential for gene-based COVID-19 “vaccines” to cause blood clots, cerebral vein thrombosis and sudden death.

The signees listed several questions in need of urgent answers, including evidence that gene-based vaccines will not enter the bloodstream and disseminate throughout the body, or that the vaccines will not remain entrapped in circulation and taken up by endothelial cells.

They warned that, barring such evidence, “it must be expected that during expression of the vaccines’ nucleic acids, peptides derived from the spike protein will be presented via the MHC I – pathway at the luminal surface of the cells,” and that many healthy individuals have CD8-lymphocytes that recognize these kinds of peptides — either due to previous COVID-19 infection, or cross-reaction with other coronaviruses responsible for the common cold.

“We must assume that these lymphocytes will mount an attack on the respective cells,” they noted, unless there’s evidence to exclude this probability.

If lymphocytes do mount an attack on cells, “it must be expected that endothelial damage with subsequent triggering of blood coagulation via platelet activation will ensue,” they warned, adding that reduced platelet count and the appearance of D-dimers in the blood is also to be expected, as are “myriad ischemic lesions throughout the body including in the brain, spinal cord and heart,” followed by “profuse bleedings and hemorrhagic stroke.”

Post-Vaccination Thrombocytopenia

Bhakdi and colleagues cite research showing the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein binds to the ACE2 receptor on platelets. The subsequent activation of the platelets can lead to disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), i.e., a pathological overstimulation of your coagulation system that can result in abnormal, and life threatening, blood clotting, as well as thrombocytopenia (low platelet count) and hemorrhaging.

Platelets are specialized cells that stop bleeding. As Bhakdi explains, you basically end up with so many blood clots throughout your vascular system that your coagulation system is exhausted, resulting in bleeding (hemorrhaging). Interestingly, thrombocytopenia — low platelet count —has been reported in severe COVID-19 cases and vaccinated individuals alike, suggesting the spike protein may be a causative agent.

The signees also demand evidence that “an actual emergency existed at the time of the EMA granting Conditional Marketing Authorization to the manufacturers of all three vaccines, to justify their approval for use in humans,” seeing how most hospitals, in most countries, were no longer at capacity when the authorizations were issued.

“There are serious concerns, including but not confined to those outlined above, that the approval of the COVID-19 vaccines by the EMA was premature and reckless, and that the administration of the vaccines constituted and still does constitute ‘human experimentation,’ which was and still is in violation of the Nuremberg Code,” the letter states.2

Vaccine Risks Clearly Outweigh Any Potential Benefit

Since that February 28, 2021, letter to the EMA, 15 European countries have suspended use of the AstraZeneca DNA vector-based vaccine due to clotting disorders.3

The U.S. temporarily suspended the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, another DNA vector vaccine, for the same reason.4,5 As of mid-May 2021, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had identified 28 cases of serious blood clots among the 8.7 million Americans who had received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.6

While the CDC admitted there’s evidence to suggest a plausible causal association, the pause was lifted April 23, 2021.7 However, as Bhakdi explains, the mRNA vaccines (Moderna and Pfizer) are just as dangerous and can cause the same problems, as the key causative agent appears to be the spike protein.

The EMA held a press conference March 17, 2021, at which they assured the European population that no definitive link could be found between the COVID-19 vaccines and these rare coagulation disorders. They also stated that the World Health Organization “considers that the benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine outweigh its risks and recommends that vaccinations continue.”

However, as stated in a follow-up letter to the EMA, Bhakdi and his colleagues point out that “The WHO is not a competent body for formally evaluating drug safety. That is explicitly the role of the [EMA].”

In the interview, Bhakdi notes that in Germany, a total of 52 people without preexisting disease died as a direct result of COVID-19 infection during the first six months of the pandemic.

Extrapolating from the EMA’s own statistics on vaccine-related deaths (which is likely to be an undercount), vaccinating 60 million Germans under the age of 60 would result in the death of 54 people from these two rare blood disorders alone8 (DIC and cerebral venous thrombosis, i.e., blood clots in the brain resulting in bleeding).

“So, how in God’s name can the benefits outweigh the risks?” Bhakdi says. Indeed, it’s important to realize that the COVID-19 vaccines do not confer immunity. You can still contract the infection and spread it to others.

All the vaccines may do is reduce your symptoms, if and when you get infected. Also remember that, unless you are elderly and have more than two underlying chronic conditions, your risk of death from COVID-19 is on par with seasonal influenza.9,10,11,12,13

As explained by Bhakdi, the first symptom of a blood clot in your brain is a splitting headache, followed by nausea, vomiting, dizziness, alterations of consciousness, reduced hearing, blurred vision, paralysis and uncontrollable body spasms, just to name a few. Early emergency medical treatment is essential for survival.

Vast numbers of people complain of one or several of these symptoms after getting a COVID-19 shot, and not just the AstraZeneca vaccine, and this does not bode well for safety.

How COVID Vaccines Deregulate Your Vascular Function

In the video above, Bhakdi explains the science behind the blood disorders seen post-vaccination with gene-based COVID-19 “vaccines,” and why, in the long term, these injections may be causing dangerously overactive immune function in hundreds of millions if not billions of people.

He believes the mRNA or DNA in the vaccines are being taken up by the endothelial cells that line your blood vessels. These cells then start producing the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein in the blood vessel wall.

“This is a disastrous situation,” Bhakdi says, “because the spike protein itself is now sitting on the surface of the cells, facing the bloodstream. It is known that these spike proteins, the moment they touch platelets, they active them [the platelets], and that sets the whole clotting system going.

The second thing that should happen, according to theory, is that the waste products of this protein that are produced in the cell, are put in front of the ‘door’ of the cell … and is presented to the immune system.

The immune system, especially the lymphocytes, recognize these and will attack the cells, because they don’t want them to make viruses or viral parts. And the viral parts are now being made in locations where viral parts would never, ever reach [naturally], like the vessel wall in your brain …

If that ‘tapestry’ of the wall [i.e., the lining of the blood vessel] is then destroyed, then that is the signal for the clotting system to [activate], and create a blood clot. And this happens with all of these vaccines because the gene [the instruction to make spike protein] is being introduced to the vessel wall.”

The fact that blood clots can occur anywhere in the body is evident from reports. For example, a 43-year-old healthy man lost a large portion of his small intestine after developing a blood clot following the AstraZeneca vaccine.14 His symptoms included headache, nausea, fever and vomiting.

A 62-year-old woman suffered blood clots in her lungs a week after the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.15 The same fate hit an 18-year-old nursing student three weeks after getting the AstraZeneca jab.16

Clear Correlation Between Vaccine and Increased Death Rate

Five months into the vaccination campaign, statistics tell a frightening story. For example, one recent investigation17 shows deaths are 14.6 times more frequent during the first 14 days after the first COVID injection among people over the age of 60, compared to those who aren't vaccinated.

Another study,18 reviewed in the video above, shows that after COVID-19 vaccines were implemented, overall death rates, with few exceptions, temporarily increased after they had been dropping in virtually every country.

Interestingly, I recently interviewed Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., about a paper in which she details some of the harmful mechanics of COVID-19 vaccines, and she noted that countries in which COVID-19 vaccines have not raised mortality rates are also not using glyphosate. This, she believes, may be a central part of the equation, as glyphosate causes a lot of biological damage and lowers your immune function.

April 23, 2021, molecular biologist and toxicologist Janci Chunn Lindsay, Ph.D., provided a public comment during a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) meeting, in which she noted that:19

“We have enough evidence now to see a clear correlation with increased COVID deaths and the vaccine campaigns. This is not a coincidence. It is an unfortunate unintended effect of the vaccines.

We simply must not turn a blind eye and pretend this is not occurring. We must halt all COVID vaccine administration immediately, before we create a true pandemic that we cannot reign in.”

Other Theories

Another hypothesis has been presented by professor Andreas Greinacher, a German expert on blood. Greinacher and his team at the University of Greifswald believe viral vector vaccines — AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson — may be causing an immune response resulting in blood clots due to the presence of human-derived proteins and/or the preservative used in the AstraZeneca vaccine. As reported by The Wall Street Journal:20

“Prof. Greinacher and his team has … identified more than 1,000 proteins in AstraZeneca’s vaccine derived from human cells, as well as a preservative known as ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, or EDTA.

Their hypothesis is that EDTA, which is common to drugs and other products, helps those proteins stray into the bloodstream, where they bind to a blood component called platelet factor 4, or PF4, forming complexes that activate the production of antibodies.

The inflammation caused by the vaccines, combined with the PF4 complexes, could trick the immune system into believing the body had been infected by bacteria, triggering an archaic defense mechanism that then runs out of control and causes clotting and bleeding …

The type of clotting observed is known as vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia, or VITT. Peer-reviewed studies by Prof. Greinacher’s group, as well as from teams at the University of Oslo and University College London have independently confirmed its existence.”

Other scientists hypothesize that the adenoviruses used in the DNA vector shots might play a role, as they too have been linked to blood clotting, while a theory suggested by professor Eric van Gorp in The Netherlands is that the intense flu-like symptoms induced by the shots contribute to inflammation that can trigger or exacerbate an autoimmune reaction that in turn results in blood clotting.21

Toxicity of Spike Protein Is a Major Issue

As noted in my interview with Seneff, a key problem with all of these gene-based COVID-19 vaccines is that the spike protein itself appears toxic, and your body is now a spike protein-producing factory.

“They have done studies where they only expose the [animal] to the spike protein, showing it was toxic in the brain and the blood vessels,” Seneff said, “So, it's causing immune reactions all by itself that is damaging to the tissues.”

Its inherent toxicity may be due to it being a prion protein. While this has yet to be conclusively determined, there are signs to suggest the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein acts as a prion. If so, we can expect these injections to cause all manner of prion diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS).

COVID-19 vaccines are instruction sets for your body to make a toxic protein that will eventually wind up concentrated in your spleen, from where prion-like protein instructions will be sent out, leading to neurodegenerative diseases.

Disturbingly, the spike protein produced by COVID-19 vaccines — due to the modifications made to the synthetic mRNA that delivers the instructions to the cell for what protein to make — may make it more of a prion than the spike protein in the actual virus, and a more effective one.

To summarize a take-home message from that interview, COVID-19 vaccines are instruction sets for your body to make a toxic protein that will eventually wind up concentrated in your spleen, from where prion-like protein instructions will be sent out, leading to neurodegenerative diseases.

Vaccine Remedy May Be Worse Than the Disease

In her recently published paper, Seneff explains how and why the spike protein acts as a metabolic poison. While I recommend reading Seneff’s paper in its entirety, I’ve extracted key sections below, starting with how the spike protein can trigger pathological damage leading to lung damage and heart and brain diseases:22

“The picture is now emerging that SARS-CoV-2 has serious effects on the vasculature in multiple organs, including the brain vasculature … In a series of papers, Yuichiro Suzuki in collaboration with other authors presented a strong argument that the spike protein by itself can cause a signaling response in the vasculature with potentially widespread consequences.

These authors observed that, in severe cases of COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2 causes significant morphological changes to the pulmonary vasculature … Furthermore, they showed that exposure of cultured human pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein S1 subunit was sufficient to promote cell signaling without the rest of the virus components.

Follow-on papers showed that the spike protein S1 subunit suppresses ACE2, causing a condition resembling pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a severe lung disease with very high mortality … The ‘in vivo studies’ they referred to … had shown that SARS coronavirus-induced lung injury was primarily due to inhibition of ACE2 by the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, causing a large increase in angiotensin-II.

Suzuki et al. (2021) went on to demonstrate experimentally that the S1 component of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, at a low concentration … activated the MEK/ERK/MAPK signaling pathway to promote cell growth. They speculated that these effects would not be restricted to the lung vasculature.

The signaling cascade triggered in the heart vasculature would cause coronary artery disease, and activation in the brain could lead to stroke. Systemic hypertension would also be predicted. They hypothesized that this ability of the spike protein to promote pulmonary arterial hypertension could predispose patients who recover from SARS-CoV-2 to later develop right ventricular heart failure.

Furthermore, they suggested that a similar effect could happen in response to the mRNA vaccines, and they warned of potential long-term consequences to both children and adults who received COVID-19 vaccines based on the spike protein.

An interesting study by Lei et. al. (2021) found that pseudovirus — spheres decorated with the SARS-CoV-2 S1 protein but lacking any viral DNA in their core — caused inflammation and damage in both the arteries and lungs of mice exposed intratracheally.

They then exposed healthy human endothelial cells to the same pseudovirus particles. Binding of these particles to endothelial ACE2 receptors led to mitochondrial damage and fragmentation in those endothelial cells, leading to the characteristic pathological changes in the associated tissue.

This study makes it clear that spike protein alone, unassociated with the rest of the viral genome, is sufficient to cause the endothelial damage associated with COVID-19. The implications for vaccines intended to cause cells to manufacture the spike protein are clear and are an obvious cause for concern.”

Long-Term Neurological Damage Is To Be Expected

Seneff also describes key characteristics of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein that suggests it’s a prion. As such, the spike protein may induce serious neurological damage resulting in conditions such as such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS), just to name a few. She writes:23

“Neurological symptoms associated with COVID-19, such as headache, nausea and dizziness, encephalitis and fatal brain blood clots are all indicators of damaging viral effects on the brain. Buzhdygan et al. (2020) proposed that primary human brain microvascular endothelial cells could cause these symptoms …

In an in vitro study of the blood-brain barrier, the S1 component of the spike protein promoted loss of barrier integrity, suggesting that the spike protein acting alone triggers a pro-inflammatory response in brain endothelial cells, which could explain the neurological consequences of the disease.

The implications of this observation are disturbing because the mRNA vaccines induce synthesis of the spike protein, which could theoretically act in a similar way to harm the brain. The spike protein generated endogenously by the vaccine could also negatively impact the male testes, as the ACE2 receptor is highly expressed in Leydig cells in the testes …

Prion diseases are a collection of neurodegenerative diseases that are induced through the misfolding of important bodily proteins, which form toxic oligomers that eventually precipitate out as fibrils causing widespread damage to neurons …

Furthermore, researchers have identified a signature motif linked to susceptibility to misfolding into toxic oligomers, called the glycine zipper motif … Prion proteins become toxic when the α-helices misfold as β-sheets, and the protein is then impaired in its ability to enter the membrane.

Glycines within the glycine zipper transmembrane motifs in the amyloid-β precursor protein (APP) play a central role in the misfolding of amyloid-β linked to Alzheimer’s disease. APP contains a total of four GxxxG motifs. When considering that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is a transmembrane protein, and that it contains five GxxxG motifs in its sequence,24 it becomes extremely plausible that it could behave as a prion.

One of the GxxxG sequences is present within its membrane fusion domain. Recall that the mRNA vaccines are designed with an altered sequence that replaces two adjacent amino acids in the fusion domain with a pair of prolines.

This is done intentionally in order to force the protein to remain in its open state and make it harder for it to fuse with the membrane. This seems to us like a dangerous step towards misfolding potentially leading to prion disease …

A paper published by J. Bart Classen (2021) proposed that the spike protein in the mRNA vaccines could cause prion-like diseases, in part through its ability to bind to many known proteins and induce their misfolding into potential prions.

Idrees and Kumar (2021) have proposed that the spike protein’s S1 component is prone to act as a functional amyloid and form toxic aggregates … and can ultimately lead to neurodegeneration.”

Clear Crimes Against Humanity

Circling back to where we started, March 23, 2021, the EMA issued a reply25 to the Doctors for COVID Ethics. In it, they conceded that the gene-based “vaccines” do enter the bloodstream, but they could provide no quantitative data. This lack of data effectively nullifies the remainder of their scientific assessment, which Doctors for COVID Ethics described as “unconvincing and unacceptable.”

The following week, April 1, 2021, Doctors for COVID Ethics sent a follow-up letter and rebuttal26 to the EMA, expressing their dissatisfaction with the EMA’s responses:27

“We are dismayed that you chose to respond to our request for crucially important information in a dismissive and unscientific manner. Such a cavalier approach to vaccine safety creates the unwelcome impression that the EMA is serving the interests of the very pharmaceutical companies whose products it is you pledged duty to evaluate.

The evidence is clear that there are some serious adverse event risks and that a number of people not at risk from SARS-CoV-2 have died following vaccination …

For the avoidance of doubt, if your regulatory body does not immediately suspend its ‘emergency’ recommendation of potentially dangerous inadequately tested gene-based ‘vaccines,’ while the matters which we have highlighted to you are properly investigated, we hereby put the EMA on notice of being complicit in medical experimentation, in violation of the Nuremberg Code, which thereby constituted the commission of crimes against humanity.”



COVID & The Noble Lie

COVID & The Noble Lie

Authored by Brian Maher via,

“Unethical”… “dystopian”… “totalitarian”…

These are the words of the British government’s primary scientific advisory bunch — the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour, by title.

These scientific advisors presently droop their heads in shame. For these are the very words they employ to describe their own conduct.

They concede: Last March their wicked counsel encouraged government officials to wildly inflate the true viral threat.

Only a pitiless torturing of facts — argued these men and women of science — could terrify the public into locking themselves in, locking themselves up, locking themselves down.

The London Telegraph:

In March [2020] the Government was very worried about compliance and they thought people wouldn’t want to be locked down. There were discussions about fear being needed to encourage compliance, and decisions were made about how to ramp up the fear.

Fear came ladling out by the ton.

Millions and millions would perish in agonies scarcely describable, they howled. The hospitals would overflow into the streets, they screeched.

Only the near-cessation of all public life could cage the menace.

The halfway men, the men counseling a measured response… were drummed out of court.

“Using Fear Smacks of Totalitarianism”

Group psychologist Gavin Morgan, confessing his atrocities:

Clearly, using fear as a means of control is not ethical. Using fear smacks of totalitarianism. It’s not an ethical stance for any modern government. By nature I am an optimistic person, but all this has given me a more pessimistic view of people.

A pity, it is, that this fellow is not a Daily Reckoning reader.

We would have squeezed the optimism from him long ago… and pumped in an implacable pessimism.

It would have spared him an awful letting-down, a massacre of his innocent delusions.

Here another (unnamed) scientific advisor enters the confession booth:

The way we have used fear is dystopian. The use of fear has definitely been ethically questionable. It’s been like a weird experiment. Ultimately, it backfired because people became too scared.

Another member was “stunned by the weaponisation of behavioural psychology.”

Yet another head-shrinker likens his witchcraft to mind control:

“You could call psychology ‘mind control.’ That’s what we do…”

Might we suggest another term for what they do? Might that term be… ‘propaganda?’


Let us consult Mr. Webster and his famous thesaurus. He defines propaganda this way:

Information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view… ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one’s cause or to damage an opposing cause.

We will assume the Telegraph’s reporting in this instance is authentic. If true… has not the British government… purposefully broadcast propaganda?

We are compelled to conclude it has.

And since the United States government let out similar shrieks, can we conclude it too has broadcast propaganda — and for identical reasons?

‘Maybe it did,’ you argue. ‘But the government needed to exaggerate the threat, else too few people would take it seriously. More people would have died. They did what they needed to do.’

That is, you give a wink and nod towards what Plato labeled “the noble lie.”

It may be a lie, you allow. But it is a lie conscripted in the service of a higher good.

Perhaps your argument has juice in it. But is not a noble lie… nonetheless a lie?

And should democratic governments lie to We the People, however nobly?

As well heave the civics books into the hell box.

Noble Lies

The men gathered at Philadelphia in 1787 lacked authorization to draft a Constitution.

Their mandate was to sand down the rougher edges of the Articles of Confederation, to rub on some polish, to give a slight renovation.

They instead dynamited the thing to bits and pieces. The public was denied all knowledge of their mischiefs, denied all voice in the outcome.

It represented — in essence — a coup, a treason against the United States.

Yet it glows in history as the Miracle at Philadelphia. We label the plotters “Founding Fathers.”

And they mounted Olympus rather than the gallows.

The Good Guys Don’t Always Sport White Hats

Mr. Lincoln was no more determined to banish slavery than a bought policeman is determined to banish the narcotics trade.

He would look away from Southern evil so long as he could count his tariffs at the ports of Charleston, Savannah and New Orleans.

What does the noble lie mistell us?

That Old Abe was monomaniacal against the scourge of chattel slavery… and that “every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword.”

Here is another noble lie:

The Kaiser’s soldaten bayoneted Belgian babies during the First World War.

In August 1914, the British scissored the undersea German communications cables running west to American shores.

All trans-Atlantic flows would therefore issue from the British Foreign Office… the same British Foreign Office that sweated mightily to enlist the United States in its cause.

Hence the dreaded Hun’s skewering of poor Belgian infants and similar atrocities.

Come now to Dec. 8, 1941…

Dastardly, Yes. But Unprovoked?

Roosevelt — Franklin Delano — raged against Japan’s dastardly and unprovoked attack the morning prior.

Yet was it entirely unprovoked?

In July 1941, the United States government froze all Japanese assets in its possession.

In August 1941,  the United States government embargoed oil and gasoline exports to Japan.

Over 80% of Japan’s supply shipped in from the United States.

Officials knew well that Japan might take a desperate armed lunge in response.

These men believed war was all but assured. But it was critical that Japan deliver the initial blow… to incense the American public.

United States War Secretary Henry Stimson, on the wrecks of Pearl Harbor:

“My first feeling was of relief … that a crisis had come in a way which would unite all our people.”

Picking Fights With Germans

Prior to Pearl Harbor, the United States Navy had also been initiating jousts against German U-boats along the Atlantic convoy routes.

Was the United States a neutral power prior to December 1941? And did razzing German U-boats constitute a breach of this neutrality?

Many historians will tell you Mr. Roosevelt was attempting to lure the Germans into another Lusitania trap.

But Herr Hitler saw the worm wriggling upon Roosevelt’s hook.

He ordered his men to avoid all tangles with vessels flying the neutral flag of the United States.

He laced into any U-boat man who gobbled the American bait — even in strictest defense.

Not Defending Japan or Germany

Let it go immediately into the record:

We do not throw in with the Japanese Empire… or with the Austrian corporal’s National Socialist German Workers’ Party.

In our residence, Victory in Europe Day and Victory Over Japan Day are events of high revelry. They are third only to Independence Day and Flag Day.

Once, under the heavy instigation of liquor, we even hung Herr Hitler in effigy — and set his mannequin aflame.

We additionally made a voodoo doll of Tojo… and gave his ghost a frightful jabbing.

We merely wish to illustrate that truth is war’s first battlefield fatality.

The lie may or may not be noble. But a lie it often is.

Examples multiply and multiply.

The Noble Lie of Climate Alarmism

The noble lie lives yet… as the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour demonstrates.

In recent years, the noble lie has also covered the planet itself — climate change.

Alarmists insist we perch perilously upon the devil’s shovel.

If man continues coughing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, Earth will catch a raging fever.

Thus the world no longer confronts “climate change.” It confronts a “climate crisis.”

The noble lie writes the warrant for the mass merchandising of alarm. Stanford climate scientist Stephen Schneider:

On the one hand, as scientists we are ethically bound to the scientific method… On the other hand, we are not just scientists but human beings as well. To do that we need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, means getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.

There, in a walnut shell, you have the noble lie.

Crying Wolf

The noble liars have yelled wolf so often, so loudly, they have cashed in their credibility. Here is the danger:

One day the wolf may truly snarl at the door. An authentic plague or environmental cataclysm may menace us.

But they have already squandered their credit.

They will shout wolf and shout wolf and shout wolf again… telling a noble truth…

Only this time… no one will heed them.

Is Ivermectin The New Penicillin?

Is Ivermectin The New Penicillin?

Ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug placed the same radioactive category as Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for the treatment of COVID-19, has reemerged as a promising treatment in the battle to extinguish the pandemic.

New York Times best-selling author Michael Capuzzo has called it the "drug that cracked Covid," writing that there are “hundreds of thousands, actually millions, of people around the world, from Uttar Pradesh in India to Peru to Brazil, who are living and not dying.”

Doctors in India are big fans.

To that end Dr. Justus R. Hope, MD asks in The Desert Review: Is Ivermectin the new Penicillin?

Uttarakhand; As Far Away from Delhi as it Gets

*  *  *

As those Indian States using Ivermectin continue to diverge in cases and deaths from those states that forbid it, the natural experiment illustrates the power of Ivermectin decisively.

Cases in Delhi, where Ivermectin was begun on April 20, dropped from 28,395 to just 2,260 on May 22. This represents an astounding 92% drop. Likewise, cases in Uttar Pradesh have dropped from 37,944 on April 24 to 5,964 on May 22 - a decline of 84%. 

Delhi and Uttar Pradesh followed the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) guidance published April 20, 2021, which called for dosing of .2 mg per kg of Ivermectin per body weight for three days. This amounts to 15 mg per day for a 150-pound person or 18 mg per day for a 200-pound individual.

The other three Indian states that adopted it are all down as well. Goa is down from 4,195 to 1,647, Uttarakhand is down from 9,624 to 2,903, and Karnataka is down from 50,112 to 31,183. Goa adopted a pre-emptive policy of mass Ivermectin prevention for the entire adult population over age 18 at a dose of 12 mg daily for five days.

Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu announced on May 14 they were outlawing Ivermectin in favor of the politically correct Remdesivir. As a result, Tamil Nadu's cases are up in the same time frame from April 20 to May 22 - 10,986 to 35,873 - more than a tripling.

Although Big Pharma and Big Media have scrambled to try, they cannot explain away this natural experiment. As I predicted May 12, they would first argue "the lockdowns worked." The problem with this is that Tamil Nadu has been on strict lockdown for weeks as their cases have done nothing but climb. So the lockdown did not work.

Their next argument was that "there has been a shift from the highly populated urban areas like Delhi and Mumbai" to the hinterlands, like Tamil Nadu. The big problem is that the adjacent state, Karnataka is just as rural, and its cases are dropping on Ivermectin.

Uttar Pradesh is near the Himalayas and out in the far non-urbanized north where cases are down 84% with Ivermectin. Uttarakhand is even more rural and located in the Himalayas next to Nepal. Its infections are down 70% with Ivermectin.

Their final argument lacked any proof. It was essentially an attempt to smear Ivermectin through association with another drug. It attempted to link Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) with Ivermectin unfairly. While HCQ has become a punchline by the media, scientists like Dr. George Fareed know it is effective against COVID-19 – especially in the early stages. 

Dr. Fareed and his associate, Dr. Brian Tyson, have treated some 6,000 patients with nearly 100% success using a combination of HCQ, Ivermectin, Fluvoxamine, and various nutraceuticals, including zinc Vitamin D.

Unfortunately, none of this has made it through the censorship of the mainstream media, and the public has not heard about the 200 plus studies that reflect HCQ's effectiveness against COVID-19. The fact remains that HCQ has an undeserved negative connotation due to its connection with Trump, which is unfortunately used to tarnish other life-saving repurposed drugs, like Ivermectin. For example, in the recent Forbes article, journalist Ray uses the title, "Is Ivermectin the New Hydroxychloroquine?"

Ray does not make a single substantive argument against Ivermectin; instead, he attempts to defame, debase or degrade it by repeating baseless accusations. For example, Ray cited Merck's recommendation against Ivermectin as evidence of ineffectiveness, while Merck used no evidence to support their claim. In addition, he cited the FDA's recommendation against Ivermectin, yet the FDA admits they have not reviewed the data on which to base this conclusion:  "The FDA has not reviewed data to support the use of Ivermectin in COVID-19 patients to treat or prevent COVID-19..."

As we all know, Merck was involved in the development of a competing drug and had 356 million reasons to throw its own cheap, unprofitable Ivermectin under the bus. Furthermore, the US government was likewise involved in a significant financial conflict of interest with Merck.

The story of Ivermectin is more similar to that of Penicillin. Penicillin has saved almost 200 million lives. In addition, three men shared a Nobel Prize in 1945 for its discovery.

Ivermectin's discoverers won the 2015 Noble Prize in Medicine, and it has proven to be a life-saving drug in parasitic disease, especially in Africa. Over the past four decades, Ivermectin has saved millions from parasites like strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis - river blindness.

It has already saved tens of thousands from COVID-19 in India in those few locations that use it. It crashed Mexico's, Slovakia's, and Zimbabwe’s cases. I remain more convinced than ever that Ivermectin will bring an end to this Pandemic as the word gets out and more people share the book, Ivermectin for the World. A more fitting title to the Forbes piece might be, "Is Ivermectin the New Penicillin?"

Vaccine Passports: Where Your State Stands

As more Americans get vaccinated against COVID-19, and vaccination recommendations extend to younger and younger Americans, we are starting to see more efforts to require vaccination as a condition of receiving services, as we’ve seen at American universities. This endangers autoimmune patients who are more at risk of serious adverse events following COVID vaccination. States can take a stand for medical freedom and privacy rights. To prevent de facto vaccine mandates that endanger millions of patients, we must encourage state leaders to take action to protect our health. Ten states, so far, have taken steps to restrict or ban the use of vaccine passports, electronic applications that display an individual’s vaccination status or COVID lab test results. Many have done so through executive orders signed by the governor: Arizona, Florida, Texas, South Carolina, South Dakota, Montana, and Idaho. Three states have passed legislation along similar lines, including Utah, Indiana, and Arkansas.


French Medical Doctor: COVID-19 Injections Increasing DEATHS and New Infections – The Evidence is Overwhelming

Vaccination began on December 24 and a total of nearly 17.1 million doses of the vaccine have been administered to less than 20 million people.

Brainwashed America – Part 1


Brainwashed America: Twelve Historically Documented Tactics Actively Used by the Communists to Capture the Minds of Americans & Collapse the United States from Within was produced by the WVW Foundation, who would normally charge a fee in order to recoup their costs but they feel that the importance of this message about the ultimate weapon of disinformation, information operations, psychological warfare – aka ‘brainwashing’ – is too important and this film must get out as far and wide as possible, as quickly as possible.

This is an extremely important, educational series, even if the style of the production may leave something to be desired (for my taste). I found that the wealth of information presented far outweighed any aesthetic issues.

The term “Brainwashing” was popularized by Edward Hunter in 1956 in the book by that name. Hunter had served for two years during World War II at the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) as a Propaganda Specialist. In his book, he explained, “The word came out of the sufferings of the Chinese people. Put under a terrifying combination of subtle and crude mental and physical pressures and tortures, they detected a pattern and called it brainwashing.

“The Reds wanted people to believe that it could be amply described by some familiar expression such as education, public relations, persuasion or by some misleading term like mind reform and re-education. None of these could define it, because it was much, much more than any one of them, alone.

“The Chinese knew they hadn’t just been educated or persuaded; something much more dire than that had been perpetrated on them, similar in many peculiar ways to a medical treatment. What they had undergone was more like witchcraft, with is incantations, trances, poisons and potions with a strange flair of science about it all, like a devil dancer in a tuxedo, carrying his magic brew in a test tube. 

“The Communist hierarchy preferred people to believe that there was no such thing as brainwashing. So long as they could keep it concealed, without a name, opposition to it could be kept scattered and ineffective.”


Because brainwashing is often undetectable, Host Brannon Howse reminds us that  it must be named and its tactics identified in order for it to be refuted and destroyed.

A key thing to understand, as Turner explained is that, “No man has ever been brainwashed whose mind has not first been put into a fog…The patient first has to be deprived of his bearing, to be shaken loose from whatever beliefs and convictions he formally held until he loses faith in them entirely.”

I think many of us can identify somewhat with the above statement, given the past year of COVID and BLM/Antifa riots, plus the previous 4 years of hysterical Trump Derangement Syndrome from the Mainstream Media.

It should be clear by now that the entire #CoronaHoax is a brainwashing operation on a global scale and that the madness that we have been put through amounts to so much processing and pre-conditioning for whatever is next; having successfully polarized Americans politically and tearing communities and households apart.

In a mid-1960s radio interview on WJW Cleveland, Edward Hunter explained that brainwashing consisted of two processes. “One process is softening-up. The other process is indoctrination. Softening-up is what mainly took place in the prisoner of war camps in Korea. And softening-up is what is taking place in the United States today. Each of these two processes is composed of a number of elements that include threats, tenseness, fatigue, hunger, atrocities, pressures of that sort. I write about the in the book, ‘Brainwashing in Red China’…

“There are various [US Government] agencies studying brainwashing but what worries me much more is…the intriguing effect this has had on some of our politicians…who have become enamored of it and forget that this is something that is not intended to be used for political purposes against the American public but against an enemy – and it is now, under such names as ‘News Management’, which means lying to the American public or distorting information, being utilized by our government against our people.”

Hunter studied how the Communists took over China in 1949 and then set out to brainwash the more than 550 million citizens of China, brainwashing them to embrace Communism. His work assisted Brannon Howse in identifying the 12 techniques of brainwashing that is vital to understand in order to expose and interrupt the current ongoing brainwashing operation.

Dr William E Mayer, a psychologist who served in the Korean War, during which time he studied the several thousand American POWs who’d been imprisoned and brainwashed by the Communists and he was surprised to learn that 95% of US soldiers reported zero physical abuse, zero use of psychotropic drugs, or of any “Pavlovian” conditioning techniques.

Mayer explained in a 1954 speech, “We concluded that they’d been brainwashed. As we went into an examination of what had happened, however, we discovered that if there is such a thing as brainwashing, it was really a weapon and that what we were looking at was very possibly the closest thing to an ultimate weapon that man has yet come up with; not the end of all weapons but certainly, more effective than any weapon yet devised.

“This was a weapon designed not to destroy people, because there is a point of diminishing returns, as I need hardly point out to any destructive weapon. It was a weapon designed, rather to control groups. And the Communists have been demonstrably successful in doing just this. They have been more successful than anyone using any other kinds of weapons ever before, in the whole history of the human race.”

Host Brannon Howse details the 12 Steps that he’s discovered that have been used, over and over, since at least the 1930s to brainwash billions of people to this day and counting and here they are…


1. Remove or discredit leaders who are principled, courageous and people of conviction and morality.

2. Entice the brainwashing subjects into questioning and doubting their foundational worldview, values, and convictions.

3. Teach a revisionist history that portrays America’s capitalist, free market system as the source of all suffering and oppression.

4. Teach moral relativism and situational ethics in order to destroy morality and character.

5. Teach the importance of group consensus and collectivism and the danger and consequences of individuality.

6. Teach feelings and personal and subjective experiences over facts, reason, logic and context.

7. Put the brainwashing subjects in a state of fear, anxiety, confusion and social turbulence in order to diminish the subjects’ ability to think critically using reason, logic and context. The ultimate goal is to force the subject to surrender their individuality, values and worldview to those of the change agents and their controlled and crafted group consensus.

8. Conceal the lies and evil agenda of the propagandists behind masking terms that are chosen in order to shame and manipulate the targeted subjects into willingly embracing their demise.

9. Use individuals in trusted institutions and occupations to give credibility to the worldview and values being inculcated into the brainwashing subjects.

10. Set up a system of rewards, honor and recognition and advancement for those who embrace the worldview and values of the brainwashing program. Apply punitive consequences on any worldview and values that are contrary to the chosen worldview and values being inculcated into the brainwashing subjects.

11. Use informants, gossips and tattletales to report on noncompliance of individuals and groups.

12. Create an atmosphere and environment of chaos, suffering, hopelessness and danger, and then rescue the subjects from this condition so that the persecutor is perceived as a friend, protector and savior.

Life Insurance & COVID-19; Something Doesn't Make Sense

Life Insurance & COVID-19; Something Doesn't Make Sense

Authored by Jeff Harris via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity,

You would think that during the worst Pandemic since the 1918 Spanish Flu life insurance companies would be hedging their bets to avoid major losses from Covid-19.

I haven’t written a life policy for several years so I was wondering what was going on?

I called one of the brokers I deal with that interacts with hundreds of big life insurers to get an inside look into how the Covid crisis has changed their business.

Imagine my surprise when she said it was pretty much business as usual!

Last year when the hysteria was just getting ramped up she did say the companies temporarily tightened up underwriting and reduced the amount of coverage they would offer. But as time went by and the hard data came rolling in those same companies went back to business as usual.

I asked her specifically if life insurers wanted a Covid test as part of the underwriting process and she said none that she was aware of.

Hmm, that’s pretty interesting isn’t it?

The most lethal pandemic in decades descends on the globe with deadly mutations taking millions of innocent lives and the life insurance companies couldn’t care less.

I also asked if the cost per thousand of coverage had increased due to Covid and again she said no.

Rates were pretty much the same as they were before the Covid Pandemic ravaged the earth.

Life Insurance companies are very risk adverse.

They don’t like losing money to unnecessary claims.

The fact they’re treating Covid as a nonevent should be an indicator that something is very wrong with the whole narrative.

Joe Biden DID meet with son Hunter's business interests


While Joe Biden was campaigning for president and scandals involving his son, Hunter, kept surfacing, he assured Americans, "I have never discussed with my son or my brother or anyone else anything having to do with their businesses. Period."

That's despite a recent investigation by the Daily Wire that revealed Hunter Biden had his fingers in business pies in Saudi Arabia, Ivory Coast, Oman, Qatar, Taiwan, Zimbabwe, Greece and Mexico, in addition to his highly publicized business dealings in China and Ukraine while is father was vice president.

Further, Breitbart has reported he took 411 trips across 29 countries during the years his father was vice president, including 23 flights in or out of Joint Base Andrews, where Air Force Two is stationed.

Now the New York Post confirms that Joe Biden actually met with Ukrainian, Russian and Kazakhstani business associates of his son's "at a dinner in Washington, D.C., while he was vice president."

The report reveals that confirmation is from records on Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop.

The report said the dinner was April 16, 2015, at the private "Garden Room" at Café Milano in Georgetown.

The day after, Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, sent Hunter Biden a noting thanking him for introducing him to his father, the Post documented.

"Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together," Pozharskyi wrote. "It's realty [sic] an honor and pleasure."

Burisma was, at the time, paying Hunter Biden $83,333 a month to be on its board, even though he lacked experience in the energy industry. But he did have a father who was vice president, and in charge of Ukraine policy for the Barack Obama administration.

In fact, Joe Biden openly boasted of threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid if Ukraine's president did not fire the country's top prosecutor, Victor Shokin, who at the time was investigating Burisma for corruption.

A French website reported Shokin later filed a criminal complaint naming Joe Biden and accusing him of committing a "criminal offense" in his campaign to get Shokin fired.

The Post's report said Hunter Biden assembled the guest list for the special dinner to include Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina and her husband, corrupt former Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov, who since has died.

It was Baturina who sent $3.5 million on Feb. 14, 2014, to Rosemont Seneca Thornton LLC, one of Hunter Biden's business entities.

Hunter Biden had confirmed to guests before the dinner the vice president would be there.

In a message to Michael Karloutsos, whose father then was head of the Greek Orthodox Church, Hunter Biden said, "Ok – the reason for the dinner is ostensibly to discuss food security. Dad will be there but keep that between us for now. Thanks."

The Post reported, "The dinner raises questions about how much Joe Biden, who has claimed ignorance of his son’s activities, knew about Hunter’s dealings with foreign businesses and government officials."

Hunter Biden's guest list included three "KZ friends," "Yelana and her husband," "you and me" and "WFPUSA people" and others.

The report explained Rick Leach, of WFP USA, an American fundraising arm of the United Nations-related nonprofit, told Hunter Biden after the dinner, "What a fantastic and
productive evening – thank you!"

And a Kazakhstan banker expressed thanks for "opportunities to work closely together."

Hunter Biden's laptop was recovered from a repair shop in Delaware and surfaced during the 2020 presidential race. Legacy media joined social media companies in suppressing virtually all information it contained, leaving the Post and a handful of online news organizations reporting on it.

A post-election survey found more than one-third of voters who chose Joe Biden were not aware of the evidence linking the former vice president to corrupt financial dealings with China through his son Hunter. Had they known, according to the survey commissioned by the Media Research Center, President Trump would have won at least 289 Electoral College votes.
