A report in the German newspaper Die Welt suggests that the government there is considering taking action to shut down messaging app Telegram because people opposed to COVID restrictions and lockdowns are using it to organise protests and share information.

The report contains an interview with German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser who stated “We cannot rule this out,” when asked if the platform will be targeted for censorship.

High Level International Bankers Simulate The Collapse Of Global Financial System

A simulation of a theory based catastrophe of global bankers collapsing the financial system was conducted fairly recently. There was a striking similarity between this event and the infamous “Event 201” that was held in late 2019.

Last month, high-ranking international banking representatives and organizations convened in Israel for a worldwide “war game” simulation portraying the global financial system’s downfall.

The tabletop experiment was similar to “Event 201,” a pandemic simulation drill held in October 2019, just before COVID-19 made its global debut.

A Maine medical licensing board has temporarily suspended the license of a veteran physician for allegedly spreading "misinformation" about COVID-19 as it conducts a 30-day investigation that will require her to undergo a psychological examination.

Dr. Meryl Nass, who been a board-licensed internal physician for more than 40 years, was the subject of two complaints based, among other things, on her statements that the vaccines have serious safety issues and are ineffective at stopping infection and transmission of the virus. She called the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention a "criminal agency," pointing out that federal health officials have suppressed the use of hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin to treat COVID while pushing newer, more expensive treatments.

SCOTUS Ruling on Health Care Vaccine Mandate a ‘Big Mistake,’ Stanford Professor Says

 https://www.theepochtimes.com/scotus-ruling-is-a-big-mistake-stanford-professor-says-of-health-care-vaccine-mandate-decision_4212436.html

The U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Thursday allowing the Biden administration to continue mandating COVID-19 vaccines for most health care workers is “really unfortunate” and a “big mistake” from a health policy perspective, said Dr. Jay Bhattacharya a professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Bhattacharya, a senior scholar of Brownstone Institute, told The Epoch Times the ruling presents a situation that is “FUBAR,” a military slang term that stands for “[expletive] up beyond all repair.”

“That’s what this is, right? This is FUBAR,” he said, adding, “From a health policy perspective, from a public health perspective, it is a big mistake.”

Editorial: UChicago Must End Its Booster Mandate—We Are Not Lab Rats

 https://thechicagothinker.com/editorial-uchicago-must-end-its-booster-mandate-we-are-not-lab-rats/

Per the University of Chicago’s newly announced booster mandate, all students and employees must obtain a booster shot by January 24. Those who do not comply will be barred from campus and restricted from attending in-person classes, among other activities.

This booster mandate is demonstrably unsafe, ineffective, unnecessary, inconsistent, and unethical. We’ve struggled beneath UChicago’s draconian COVID decrees for years, but the university’s booster mandate reaches a new height of absurdity.

UChicago Demands We Submit to Experimental Shots

UChicago claims to rely upon “expert” opinion in structuring its COVID regime. Yet, even advisory committees at the FDA and CDC initially declined to recommend the COVID booster for those under the age of 65.

The FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee made an official recommendation to approve Pfizer’s application for boosters only for those 65 and older and certain high-risk populations after rejecting, in a 16-2 vote, Pfizer’s application for broader approval for the general population. The committee cited a lack of data on potential adverse effects, particularly the risks of developing myocarditis and pericarditis.

However, the FDA chose to cast aside this concern and granted “approval” anyways. ​​But even this “approval” is itself questionable. The FDA only granted approval to Comirnaty, a legally distinct version of the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine that isn’t actually available in the United States. The version of the vaccine currently available in the US remains under Emergency Use Authorization, not formal approval.


Bombshell Admission — The COVID Tests Don’t Work

 https://www.theburningplatform.com/2022/01/14/bombshell-admission-the-covid-tests-dont-work


Story at-a-glance

  • Since the beginning of the pandemic, experts have warned that the PCR test is not as a valid diagnostic and produces far too many false positives, as it can pick up on “dead,” nonreplicating viral debris
  • The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now admits the PCR test can remain positive for up to 12 weeks after infection. For this reason, they say most people don’t need to retest negative before ending their quarantine
  • The CDC also admits the PCR cannot identify active infection or measure contagiousness
  • People who are double-jabbed or unvaccinated and test positive for SARS-CoV-2, or have known exposure, but remain asymptomatic, now only need to isolate for five days rather than 10, but should wear a mask for another five days when at work or in public. People who are triple-jabbed do not need to isolate after exposure, but should wear a mask for 10 days
  • Health care workers who test positive for COVID but remain asymptomatic can return to work after seven days with a negative test, but isolation time can be cut to five days if there are staffing shortages

“How Bad is my Batch” The story of my vaccine injury

 https://www.theburningplatform.com/2022/01/14/how-bad-is-my-batch-the-story-of-my-vaccine-injury

Via Dr. Robert Malone

I actually do have a personal life. In fact, my wife of of 42 years and I are actually pretty private. Sharing personal history is not something I do everyday. However, as many of you know – I was vaccinated with Moderna twice and had a pretty significant vaccine injury. This was pretty early in the roll-out of the vaccines. It was long before the FOIA Japanese pre-clinical trial data that had so many red-flags and irregularities, long before we learned of all the issues with the clinical trials, and long before the VAERs and adverse events began to be known.

To write it, I have never been an “anti-vax” person. I have spent my career working with vaccines. I also know that some vaccines are “hot,” and are less safe. Usually these types of vaccines are reserved for extremely dangerous viruses like Ebola or Yellow fever. Where the goal is to make the vaccine 100% effective. Other vaccines, that are distributed widely, like the flu vaccines need to be very safe. The trade-off being that they are less effective. There is a whole science and art to crafting vaccines to appropriately respond to the “threat.” So, I know to read the literature, do my own due- diligence, etc before taking an experimental product or any vaccine. That is what I thought I did. The government assured us that these vaccines were very safe. I could never imagine that clinical data would be corrupted and even falsified – as we now know it was.

Anyway, back to my story. I knew in the beginning of April, 2021, that I had to travel overseas and the word on the street was that the European Union was going to require full vaccination before entering any EU country by summer (that actually never happened BTW). I knew that a full vaccination protocol was a process of weeks – and that I had better get started! Furthermore, there was a lot of buzz around the idea that vaccination would help with “long-COVID.” I had already had COVID, and just couldn’t shake a number of chronic issues that I had developed after getting the disease. Frankly, I should have done more homework on that one- because this idea really didn’t hold up to scrutiny.

Be that as it may, in April, 2021, I got vaccinated. It was early enough in the cycle, that I had no choice but to take the Moderna vaccine, as that was available in my area The vaccine was distributed at a local college, with the Army reserves administering the program.

The first shot was fine. No issues.

The second shot almost did me in. As in I almost died.

After the injection, I had the usual fatigue, muscle-ache and then the palpitations started, as well as shortness of breath. Within a couple days, it got worse – I am not someone who goes to the doctor easily, but luckily for me, I happened to have a routine appointment with my physician. She cuffed me and my systolic blood pressure was through the roof. As she is also a cardiologist, she had more tests run, started me on high blood pressure meds and we got it under control. I kind of feel like I owe her my life. A call out to the fantastic Dr. C. Bove.

Fast forward to today.

One of the people who comments on my Substack articles, pointed me to this website:

https://www.howbadismybatch.com/

This site matches up vaccine batch codes with information from the VAERS system, which is the event reporting system run by the CDC. This site matches the vaccine batches to adverse drug reactions, death, disability and life threatening illnesses from the VAERS system

According to the website above, the data reported in VAERS, reproduced on the site, show that adverse events triggered by Moderna batches have varied widely.

  • 5% of the batches appear to have produced 90% of the adverse reactions
  • Some Moderna batches are associated with 50 x the number of deaths and disabilities compared to other batches.

With that knowledge, I entered my batch code in the search box. The first injection had almost no significant adverse events associated with it. The second jab, frankly shocked me

President Biden: Please Stop The Covid Misinformation On Social Media And TV


President Biden said Thursday: "I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets — please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that's on your shows. It has to stop."

VIDEO: Biden Demands Big Tech Censor Those Who Question Regime's COVID Narrative

Joe-Biden-Big-Tech.jpg

In his latest gaffe-filled appearance before cameras, Joe Biden urged big tech companies to act against anyone who spreads COVID-19 “misinformation or disinformation” and demanded that they work with his administration to do this.

Before calling on big tech to enforce the White House’s strict ideological conformity on COVID-19, Biden blamed the state of the pandemic on vaccine resisters.

“Unfortunately while our military’s stepping up, as they always do, there are others sitting on the sidelines, and worse standing in the way,” said Biden.

“If you haven’t gotten vaccinated, do it. Personal choice impacts us all.”

He then transitioned to his “special appeal” to big tech companies and legacy media outlets: Repeat what I say, and stop those who disagree.

“I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets,” Biden began. “Please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that’s on your shows, it has to stop.”

After belittling the unvaccinated and devaluing personal choice, Biden then declared that only following his orders would end the COVID-19 pandemic.

“COVID-19 is one of the most formidable enemies our country has ever faced, and we’ve got to work together, not against each other,” he concluded.

NOW – Biden: "I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets — please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that's on your shows. It has to stop."pic.twitter.com/NeVU74web3

— Disclose.tv (@disclosetv) January 13, 2022

Biden did not acknowledge that tech companies have long cooperated with the federal government on COVID-19.

Twitter recently announced a fact checking partnership to enforce ideological rigidity, YouTube will ban users who reference COVID-19 facts not approved by the World Health Organization, and we now know that Facebook, now Meta, personally reached out to Anthony Fauci to offer help in advancing the White House’s narratives.

More recently, tech companies have offered Biden’s White House the additional favor of banning one of the Democrats’ most vocal political opponents, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Greene’s personal Twitter account and Facebook page were both purged, leading to an exodus to alt tech platforms including Gab and Telegram.

Apparently none of this is enough for Joe Biden.

German Government Considering Shutting Down Telegram; Report

German Government Considering Shutting Down Telegram; Report

Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News,

A report in the German newspaper Die Welt suggests that the government there is considering taking action to shut down messaging app Telegram because people opposed to COVID restrictions and lockdowns are using it to organise protests and share information.

The report contains an interview with German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser who stated “We cannot rule this out,” when asked if the platform will be targeted for censorship.

“A shutdown would be grave and clearly a last resort. All other options must be exhausted first,” Faeser clarified.

The minister also told the newspaper that while it is currently unclear what legal action would be needed to shut down the platform, the German government is in consultation with the European Union regarding potential regulation of it.

The Epoch Times notes that in Germany, which has implemented some of the most severe pandemic restrictions, “Telegram has been used as a hub of communication for the protest movement against the measures established to fight the CCP virus, including lockdowns, intermittent mask mandates, and restrictions for the unvaccinated.”

Telegram has been shut down or blocked in other countries including Iran, China, Pakistan, India, Thailand, and Russia.

The platform saw a huge surge in users last year after Facebook owned Watts App introduced a controversial privacy update which led to concerns that the app would hand over user data to its parent company. It also came at the same time as President Trump’s purge from big tech social media platforms.

Telegram founder Pavel Durov warned that people are “being held hostage by tech monopolies.”

In addition to being independent from big tech, Telegram promises robust end-to-end encryption, ensuring messages remain private.

This has made Telegram a target for authoritarians and big tech monopolists.

In the U.S. lobbyist group The Coalition for a Safer Web even filed a lawsuit against Apple in an effort to get Telegram removed from the app store, claiming that it allows ‘extremists’ to spread ‘hate speech’.

Newsom Announces Operation Omicron Offensive in California – Includes Door to Door Visits and Taking Over Local Media to Fight “Misinformation”

 https://vaccineimpact.com/2022/newsom-announces-operation-omicron-offensive-in-california-includes-door-to-door-visits-and-taking-over-local-media-to-fight-misinformation/

by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

As we previously reported back in December, the Government’s next major offensive against the American people and the “unvaxxed” is Operation Omicron, where they have already announced that there will be massive casualties, all blamed on the “unvaccinated.” See:

Operation Omicron: The Globalists are Preparing for Mass Murder in the Weeks Ahead

This past weekend, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the State was spending $2.7 BILLION for this offensive in California in what is called a  “COVID-19 Emergency Response Package” for an “emergency” that is now coming up on 2 years old.

$583 million of this military campaign will focus on “Getting more Californians vaccinated and boosted, and combat misinformation.”

This apparently includes taking over local ethnic media outlets that are not yet spewing out the same lies that the corporate propaganda media is broadcasting.

Continue the “Vaccinate all 58” public education campaign to provide reliable information and build vaccine confidence while combating misinformation, all of which is in partnership with 250 ethnic media outlets.

They also will hire many workers to conduct “door-to-door canvassing, phone banking and texting.” Then they will vaccinate and test people directly in their homes.

In-home vaccination and testing programs to meet Californians where they’re at. Provide free transportation to vaccination appointments throughout the state to help get more Californians vaccinated and boosted.

They will also increase their efforts to enforce contact tracing, and provide “testing and isolation and quarantine services.”

Brazilian Model Dies From the Vax



A internationally-known double-jabbed Brazilian model died from thrombosis, but the cause of her death is being given as COVID-19. It may be that she died within fourteen days of her second jab, which would mean that she was counted as “unvaccinated”.

Experts Accuse Govt Of 'Manipulating' Vaccine Data, Claim Up To 300,000 Deaths Caused By Injections

ORIGINAL LINK

BeFunky-collage-2022-01-07T164148.024.jp

The inventor of modern mRNA vaccines, Dr. Robert Malone, recently accused the U.S. government of “manipulating” vaccine data to mask the “huge number of deaths and adverse events that are directly linked” to today’s COVID-19 vaccines.

Vaccine Safety Research Foundation Founder and Executive Director Steve Kirsch agrees, estimating that a staggering 150-300 thousand deaths in the U.S. have been caused by the injections.

Vaccine Safety Research Foundation Founder and Executive Director Steve Kirsch is a a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and philanthropist who founded the COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund (CETF) at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The organization had funded research showing the promising results of fluvoxamine as an early treatment of COVID-19 in a study that was eventually featured on 60 Minutes.

Today, Mr. Kirsch leads the VSRF, an organization focused on utilizing the advancement of scientific inquiry to end the pandemic. The VSRF is backed by 20 leading scientific and medical experts, including Dr. Robert Malone and Dr. Peter McCullough.

“We present the most up to date and relevant information on COVID-19 policies free from corporate press, agenda-driven narratives, and sponsorships with conflicts of interest. We encourage questions and an open dialogue of transparency on any medical and scientific information presented,” reads a description of the VSRF on their website.

As National File previously reported, Dr. Malone accused the U.S government of “manipulating” vaccine data to hide the “huge number of deaths and adverse events that are directly linked” to the COVID-19 vaccines in a recent interview with radio host Stew Peters.

Mr. Kirsch, who is backed by Dr. Malone, estimates that the number of deaths caused by the injections can be estimated between a staggering 150-300,000.

In a piece written by Mr. Kirsch titled How to verify for yourself that over 150,000 Americans have been killed by the COVID vaccines, the VSRF Founder provides readers with a step-by-step method to reach that determination.

“Steve Bannon asked me to step you through it. I’ll do that and tell you how this is validated using independent methods and also why VAERS was deliberately set up to make all vaccines look safe,” Mr. Kirsch wrote.

In conclusion, Mr. Kirsch found that “We are left with an estimated 292,817 deaths caused by the vaccine using VAERS. Using 12 other methods, we estimate a death toll of 150,000 or more. Therefore, 150,000 is a high confidence estimate whereas 300,000 is likely closer to the actual number.”

Schools Shouldn’t Mandate ‘Most Dangerous Vaccines in Human History’

ORIGINAL LINK

Via Children’s Health Defense

Members of two committees advising the FDA and CDC endorsed experimental COVID vaccines for children as young as 5 years old.

In late October and early November, the self-serving members of two committees advising the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) without a second thought endorsed experimental COVID vaccines for children as young as 5 years old.

Ignoring the 99.995% COVID survival rate for those age 17 and under, the 31 pharma-servile “experts” also appeared unconcerned by reams of damning data about COVID-vaccine-related disabilities and fatalities already occurring in the 12–17 age group — unnecessary tragedies being acknowledged that very instant in a panel discussion convened by U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.).

Predictably, adverse event data and urgent frontline healthcare provider testimony began pouring in almost immediately after the FDA-CDC go-ahead, with 5- to 11-year-olds experiencing the same kinds of “terrifying” vaccine reactions as adolescents — including blood clots, strokes and other brain and heart problems previously almost unheard-of in young people.

In the lead-up to the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization of experimental COVID jabs for younger children, state politicians and municipal school districts also started to grease the skids to mandate COVID injections for in-person school attendance.

To date, the number of states and school systems announcing or adopting coercive plans, either for K-12 students or students ages 12 or 16 and up, is still small. However, the symbolic weight of the “early adopters” is significant.

These include states like California and Louisiana (and soon New York); major cities like Washington, D.C. (and probably New York City); and large school districts such as those in Oakland, California, and Los Angeles.

In addition, the New York City and Washington, D.C. school districts, and some or all districts in California, Hawaii and Maryland, require students involved in sports and other extracurricular activities to get jabbed.

In what sounds like good news, the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) confirmed 17 states — Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Utah — have enacted laws or issued executive orders that ban COVID-19 vaccine mandates for students.

However, most of the bans are limited to certain circumstances, with some applying only to higher education and some only to vaccines authorized under emergency use — meaning the ban would not apply to COVID vaccines that in the future gain full FDA approval for children.

Most dangerous ever

For decades, vaccines have been wreaking havoc on children’s health. For instance, consider the following:

So, when observers familiar with COVID injection data pronounce them “the most dangerous vaccines in human history,” that is saying something.

Dr. Joseph Mercola warned the COVID jabs are setting up children for “potentially lifelong health problems,” including serious heart problems resulting from myocarditis. As he wrote in early January:

“[T]he recent push to inject children with a genetic experiment may be one of the worst public health offenses perpetrated on a population of people who are unable to speak for themselves, do not have a legal voice and depend on adults to protect them.”

California ‘leads’

California spent the past half-dozen years systematically eliminating personal-belief vaccine exemptions and gutting medical exemptions.

Not content with those assaults on health freedom, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced in early October — apparently reading the minds, weeks in advance, of the FDA and CDC committee members who subsequently rubber-stamped the COVID shots for 5- to 11-year-olds — that his state would impose a K-12 mandate in both public and private schools, making California the first state to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for in-person school attendance.

The mandate hinges on the vaccines “receiving full licensure from the FDA for children,” which the state expects in July 2022.

Seeking to normalize his COVID mandate, Newsom compared it to the existing school requirements for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccination.

However, in light of the strong, statistically significant relationship between MMR vaccines and autism — and given California’s status as the state with the highest autism prevalence — Newsom’s comparison is scarcely reassuring.

Louisiana ignores

In mid-December, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards added COVID vaccines to the list of required school shots, overturning a bipartisan vote against such a mandate by the state’s House Health and Welfare Committee.

The push for the mandate originated with the Louisiana Department of Health. The House Health Committee then voted 13-2 to reject the department’s recommendation, stating that COVID vaccination “should be the parents’ decision,” a common-sense view shared by legislators and parents around the nation.

However, the governor vetoed the committee vote — and the wishes of citizens who packed the committee meeting to protest mandates — dismissively characterizing their objections as “overheated rhetoric.”

Louisiana’s governor and health officials also ignored remarks delivered at the health committee hearing by experienced Louisiana nurse Collette Martin, R.N. Martin provided testimony about serious adverse reactions in children and their widespread underreporting. She told the committee:

“We are not just seeing severe acute reactions with this vaccine, but we have zero idea what any long-term reactions are. Cancers, autoimmune [disorders], infertility. We just don’t know.”

Louisiana’s mandate, which goes into effect in fall 2022, currently applies only to students ages 16 and up, “but could expand as the vaccines get the highest level of approval” from the FDA.

School districts (try to) impose

In early January, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki asserted that decisions on school vaccine mandates “are up to local school districts.”

However, the U.S. Department of Education has been working with school districts, Psaki said, “to provide resources, connect school officials with testing providers, and set up vaccine clinics….”

Last September, Maryland’s health secretary disingenuously made similar comments, telling the press that the state prefers “not to be intentionally overbearing” or “interventionist” and instead encourages school systems “to take the lead in their individual jurisdictions.”

In California, school board members in several large school districts showed, as early as September, they were willing to “take the lead” in imposing mandates for in-person instruction.

The plans of school boards in Los Angeles (the nation’s second-largest school district), Oakland and San Diego have been undermined, however, by the large number of unvaccinated students and other apparently unforeseen pitfalls.

The Los Angeles school district, for example, pushed back its initial Jan. 10 deadline to the fall of 2022, because tens of thousands of uninjected students would have “overwhelmed the district’s independent study program.”

L.A. students ages 12 and up are supposed to upload proof of vaccination into a “Daily Pass” system. The L.A. district already requires students to undergo weekly testing (regardless of vaccination status) and subjects them to other measures such as “daily health checks,” masking and contact tracing and isolation of cases.

Three out of ten students failed to show up on the first day of school following winter break, “having tested positive for the coronavirus.”

Oakland’s school district will not enforce its mandate until Jan. 31, a month later than originally planned. When the school board voted (5-1-1) in favor of mandating COVID shots for in-person instruction for students 12 and up, it apparently did not bargain on nearly two-fifths of students in that age group (38%) remaining unvaccinated.

Casting the lone “no” vote, Oakland school board member Mike Hutchinson stated, “I don’t think we should be rolling out at midnight on a not very publicized meeting, talking about mandatory vaccinations when there’s nothing wrong with taking our due time to deliberate to make sure that we get it right.”

In December, however, Hutchinson indicated he would be comfortable deferring to the state-level mandate.

In late December in San Diego, a judge struck down the school district’s COVID vaccine mandate for students 16 and older, arguing the state legislature has not given individual school districts the authority to mandate vaccines for school attendance.

Not timid

An Oakland pediatrician who egged on her city’s school board to vote in favor of COVID mandates argued last fall, “This is not the time for timidity.”

However, as evidence accumulates about the injections’ outsized risks for children, it seems increasingly clear that a number of so-called public servants do not have a problem with timidity, having shown themselves perfectly willing to harm — and kill — children.

For former Pfizer executive Dr. Mike Yeadon, who has argued for months that the COVID injections “are toxic by design” and “were always going to harm people,” it seems obvious “criminal acts are being committed.”

Now is the time to push back against criminality and coercion — including COVID vaccine mandates and “vaccine passports” — in whatever ways we can. Our children’s lives, and our own lives, depend on it.

Dr. Peter McCullough: Official COVID 'narrative has crumbled'

Dr. Peter McCullough – a renowned cardiologist and highly published medical scientist whose confrontation of the government's COVID-19 policies has drawn more than 40 million views on Joe Rogan's podcast – told WND in a video interview Thursday night the official pandemic narrative that has been fiercely guarded by establishment media and social-media censors is "completely crumbling."

That narrative, he said, included "false statements regarding asymptomatic spread, reliance on lockdown and masks – which obviously didn't work – the suppression of early treatment, the mass promotion of vaccines that failed."

"And now here we are, almost in complete free fall," McCullough said, referring to the record number of COVID-19 cases as officials acknowledge the vaccines don't prevent infection or transmission.

McCullough noted that in California, with the more contagious but much milder omicron variant now dominant, health care workers who tested positive for COVID-19 and had symptoms were told to go back to work.

"With that, I think that's it. I think that's the end. The narrative has crumbled. People don't want these vaccines," McCullough said.

"The vaccines should be pulled off the market. They clearly are not solving the problem."

The focus, he said, should be on "treating high-risk patients who develop symptoms" with some of the early treatments that he and other physicians around the world have found to be effective, including ivermectin and a new drug granted emergency use authorization by the FDA, Paxlovid.

McCullough cited a study from Denmark and data from the U.K.'s health agency showing that the vaccines have zero effectiveness against omicron.

"That's not misinformation," he said. "I'm just quoting the data. All of this can be looked up. Fact-checkers can look at it. I know I'll never have any problems with allegations of misinformation, because I just quote the data."

President Biden clearly had McCullough in mind when on Thursday he urged social media companies and media outlets to "please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that's on your shows. It has to stop."

McCullough pointed out his work has been relied upon by courts across the nation, including the U.S. Supreme Court, and he has testified to the U.S. Senate and will be back there later this month.

"I think America knows who is giving them the straight story."

In the half-hour video interview with WND (embedded below), McCullough also discussed:

  • The punishment of physicians who counter the official COVID narrative and use clinically indicated, FDA-approved drugs off-label such as ivermectin to treat COVID-19 patients, including a colleague in Maine whose was ordered to undergo a psychological examination after her license was suspended;
  • His participation in a rally in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 23 protesting vaccine mandates;
  • The Supreme Court's rulings Thursday on vaccine mandates;
  • The possibility that omicron could spell the end of the pandemic, serving as a "universal booster";
  • Data showing that vaccination has backfired, making the pandemic worse in nations with high vaccine intake;
  • The lethality of the mRNA vaccines;
  • His view on Biden's mass testing program;
  • His take on new FDA-approved treatments and his simple, inexpensive, over-the-counter protocol for treating omicron;
  • The unwillingness of so many doctors to "come off the sidelines" and treat patients for COVID-19;
  • The "crisis of competence" among top government health officials;
  • Where to find resources and support for physicians and patients, and for employees confronting mandates.

"I think Americans are going to understand that their individual choice is really what's going to matter in the end," he McCullough told WND in conclusion. "If Americans decide that they're not going to take any boosters or any more vaccines, it doesn't matter how many mandates or how many court decisions that happen. The vaccine program is going to crumble. I think it's just a matter of saying no."

He emphasized that the vaccines are still "research."

"No one can be forced into it," he said of vaccination. "And they're not turning out to be safe or effective. So, if  everybody just stands firm and declines the vaccines, I think that will be the quickest way for us to get out of this."

See the WND interview with Dr. Peter McCullough:

McCullough, in a video interview with WND in December, called for a "pivot" from the current policies to early treatment and "compassionate care" for those who have COVID or have suffered vaccine injuries, which have included myocarditis, neurological issues and blood clotting.

"Now is the time for doctors to step up. Now is not a time for rhetoric or harsh statements regarding scientific discourse," he said.

Many of McCullough's 600 peer-reviewed publications have appeared in top-tier journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association and The Lancet. He testified to the U.S. Senate in November 2020 against what he described as the federal government's politicization of health care during the pandemic, curbing or blocking the availability of cheap, effective treatments. In a speech in September, he told of having been stripped of the editorship of a Swiss-based journal after having lost his position with a major health system, "with no explanation and no due process." Baylor University Medical Center fired him in February. And Texas A&M College of Medicine, Texas Christian University and University of North Texas Health Science Center School of Medicine have cut ties with McCullough, accusing him of spreading misinformation.

"I've been stripped of every title that I've ever had in that institution. I've received a threat letter from the American College of Physicians, [and] a threat letter from the American Board," he said in September.

All because of his "lawful" participation "in a topic of public importance."

He said there are "powerful forces at work, far more powerful than we can possibly think of, that are influencing anybody who is in a position of authority."

McCullough is the chief medical adviser for the Truth for Health Foundation, a physician-founded charity that says it is "dedicated to following the Oath of Hippocrates to serve individual patients to the best of our ability and judgement and to uphold the highest standards of medical ethics."

EDITOR'S NOTE: Last year, America's doctors, nurses and paramedics were celebrated as frontline heroes battling a fearsome new pandemic. Today, under Joe Biden, tens of thousands of these same heroes are denounced as rebels, conspiracy theorists, extremists and potential terrorists. Along with massive numbers of police, firemen, Border Patrol agents, Navy SEALs, pilots, air-traffic controllers, and countless other truly essential Americans, they're all considered so dangerous as to merit termination, their professional and personal lives turned upside down due to their decision not to be injected with the experimental COVID vaccines. Biden’s tyrannical mandate threatens to cripple American society – from law enforcement to airlines to commercial supply chains to hospitals. It's already happening. But the good news is that huge numbers of "yesterday’s heroes" are now fighting back – bravely and boldly. The whole epic showdown is laid out as never before in the sensational October issue of WND's monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled "THE GREAT AMERICAN REBELLION: 'We will not comply!' COVID-19 power grab ignites bold new era of national defiance."

Minneapolis mayor: Kids between 2 and 5 need to show a negative COVID test done in a lab to enter restaurants

 https://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2022/01/13/minneapolis-mayor-kids-between-2-and-5-need-to-show-a-negative-covid-test-done-in-a-lab-to-enter-restaurants/

As Twitchy recently reported, an MSNBC host’s family was recently turned away from a New York restaurant because he had his 4-year-old with him — and the restaurant did not admit unvaccinated people … never mind there’s no vaccine approved for kids under 5. If you have young children, you’re either eating outside or at home.

Now we’re hearing that the mayor of Minneapolis is going to impose restrictions on indoor dining facilities, and kids under 5 are not exempt.

2019 amendment to CDC program may be tip-off of falsified pandemic

 https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/2019-amendment-to-cdc-program-may-be-tip-off-of-planned-covid-pandemic/

ANALYSIS

(LifeSiteNews) – An “epidemic intelligence” program of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) was amended months before COVID-19 in a way that gave legal cover to covert public health “drills and exercises” – suggesting yet another tip-off of at least a partially falsified COVID pandemic. The same law, enacted in June 2019, also approved the inclusion of “genome editing” and “related technologies” “as a part of preparedness and response activities to advance national health security.”

Several previous articles provided information suggesting that COVID-19 may be some sort of national and international hoax, ruse, ploy, operational exercise, national security exercise, or something similar enacted by the U.S. government and international governments. This article provides more significant information to support that claim. While the large amount of significant information provided in previous articles cannot be mentioned here, it is necessary to provide a brief summary of a few of those articles, with new references, as support for the new information discussed in this article.

Italy bans unvaccinated from all public transport under new rules

 https://www.wnd.com/2022/01/italy-bans-unvaccinated-public-transport-new-rules/

(BREITBART) – The Italian government has moved to ban unvaccinated people from public transport, outdoor dining, sports centres and more until at least March 31st of this year.

The Italian government is imposing further restrictions on the unvaccinated this week, requiring the country’s “Super Green Pass” health passport for access to public transit, which is only eligible to those fully vaccinated or those recovered from the Wuhan coronavirus, compared to the regular Green Pass which allows unvaccinated people to qualify temporarily by presenting a negative coronavirus test.

Local and regional buses, subways, trains and trams all required the Super Green Pass as of Monday, January 10th and will require the health pass until at least March 31st under the new government restrictions and passengers will require FFP2 masks to be worn as well, Il Giornale reports.

Can you hear the official narratives collapsing?

 https://www.wnd.com/2022/01/can-hear-official-narratives-collapsing/

The myriad apparati of the left – blue-state governments, broadcast, print and social media and academia – have exercised suffocating control over America and Americans for the past two years. Their unprecedented power grabs have been facilitated by massive propaganda campaigns and deliberate deceit, the reckless promotion of fear and deprivation of fundamental rights.

But their stranglehold on the country is finally loosening.

You can certainly feel it. You can practically see it. It's like watching cracks form in a massive sea of ice, or tugging on the thread of a knitted piece of fabric to make the whole thing unravel. It's not quite describable as a house of cards collapsing – yet – but it's oh, so close.

So many metaphors, so little time.

The most recent examples are related to the COVID-19 pandemic. But the template we've seen play out with the virus and vaccines has been employed more times, and in other circumstances, with a brazen frequency that's frankly astonishing.


American Diplomats In Geneva, Paris Fall Victim To "Havana Syndrome"

American Diplomats In Geneva, Paris Fall Victim To "Havana Syndrome"

More cases of 'Havana Syndrome' have just been reported at American embassies in Geneva and Paris, WSJ reports. Officials employed at both facilities have been afflicted by the neurological attacks, and at least one victim was evacuated back to the US for treatment.

Like most prior reports on Havana Syndrome attacks, this one comes with a significant delay: the attacks were first reported internally last summer, and quickly made their way to the State Department back in Washington. At least three cases of the syndrome were reported in Geneva, and there was at least one in Paris, WSJ said, bringing the total number of Havana Syndrome victims to close to 200.

While the Biden Administration's State Department insists on calling the attacks "anomalous health incidents," the CIA doesn't mince words. The "attacks" continue to befuddle America's best analysts. Nobody has a clear idea of what's causing them, or who might be behind it. Scientists have blamed crickets in Havana, and - as we mentioned above - those dastardly Russians. Yet, five years after the attacks started, the US appears no closer to the truth.

These attacks began back in 2016 and 2017 when American and Canadian diplomats first reported symptoms while working at the American embassy in Havana.

The first reports of the attacks didn't reach the press until months later.

The State Department refused to comment on the latest attacks. But back in November, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the administration was "intently focused" on getting to the bottom of these incidents. His comments came after VP Kamala Harris had a flight to Vietnam delayed after an alleged incident of the mysterious syndrome.

Havana Syndrome, which has alternatively been blamed on crickets, and Russia, is a mysterious phenomenon that has afflicted personnel - both spies and legitimate diplomats, according to media reports - at embassies around the world, including Cuba, China, Vietnam, Western Europe, South America and elsewhere.

Symptoms include dizziness, cognitive difficulties, tinnitus, vertigo and trouble seeing, hearing and with balance. Elsewhere in Europe, cases have been reported in Serbia, Germany and Austria.

The attacks have inflicted "profound" physiological and psychological harm to the victims, who have described hearing loss, debilitating headaches, and even some lasting brain damage, for those who have been targeted in these attacks.

The Biden Administration has place a new man in charge of solving the mystery: Jonathan Moore, a career diplomat, was named the new head of the State Department's Health Incident Response task force back in November. Diplomats around the world better hope he's up to the job, because if this keeps up, working in an American embassy will become one of the world's most dangerous professions. And let's not forget: many of those who have been targeted were spies working not for the State Department, but the CIA.

Government data: COVID infections, deaths soar after vaccination

Data from the Canadian province Alberta confirms figures from other nations contradicting the "pandemic of the vaccinated" narrative, showing a spike in COVID-19 cases after vaccination.

Alberta's data is particularly useful because the province reports COVID cases, hospitalizations and deaths by day after the first and second vaccine doses.

The most recent figures from the population of 4.4 million show infections, hospitalizations and deaths from COVID all soar in the days and weeks after people receive their first vaccine dose, reports former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson.

Hospitalizations:

Deaths:

He points out that the figures support the national data from Israel and Britain, which saw COVID deaths hit all-time highs after launching mass vaccination campaigns.

Berenson observes that advocates of the COVID vaccines argue the deaths in the U.K. could be the result of a preexisting winter wave. (Although, he adds, other European countries such as France and Spain did not faces similar large surges).

In any case, that explanation can't be applied to Alberta, which began its vaccine campaign after the winter 2020-2021 COVID spike. Through mid-February 2021, only about 2% of Alberta residents had received their first dose.

"The most likely explanation for the spike was and remains that the first dose of the vaccines transiently suppresses the immune system, as Pfizer’s own clinical trial data reveal," Berenson writes.

He pointed out that under "the counting rules used by American public health authorities and media outlets, all these deaths and infections are counted and reported as having occurred in unvaccinated people."

Data from the U.K. from Aug. 16 to Dec. 5, 2021, showed people who had been vaccinated accounted for four of every five COVID-19 deaths, the Gateway Pundit reported.

Further, a U.K. "technical briefing on SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern" found that as of Dec. 29, the fully vaccinated make up 74% hospitalizations due to infection from the omicron variant that now dominates Western nations.
