What Is Twitter Hiding? Don’t Forget Dr. Shiva’s MINDBLOWING Lawsuit Against Big Tech

ORIGINAL LINK

Guest post by Nick Moseder at Substack

Arabian princes came out of the woodwork! Not to mention, the hysteria from the left. These very same blue haired dipsh*ts who championed censorship a year ago, claiming Twitter had every right to ban a sitting president, suddenly began screaming for the government to reform Section 230. “REEEEE!!!”

Funny, the moment an African American threatens to take over their precious echo chamber, they have an absolute meltdown…

And we’re supposed to be the racists?! PFFFFFTTTTTT!

Then came the Twitter “poison pill”, a DESPERATE move in an attempt to block Elon Musk’s hostile takeover completely. The announcement came yesterday that Twitter would damage the share value if anyone amassed more than 15% of the company by selling to other shareholders at a discounted cost. Thus proving once and for all, that Big Tech doesn’t give a SH*T about money, or what is best for their shareholders.

So if it’s not money, what is it that they’re REALLY interested in? Why are they willing to destroy themselves in order to prevent a hostile takeover that would actually BENEFIT them? Are they just THAT devoted to their left wing agenda, or is something ELSE going on here….

Could it be… THEY’RE HIDING SOMETHING?!

Did Everyone Just Miraculously Forget About Dr Shiva’s Lawsuit Against Big Tech?!

Not too long ago, Dr Shiva was in the fight of his life, uncovering a SHOCKING connection between Big Tech, and governments around the world! The discovery process in his lawsuit revealed historic revelations; arguably more than any Big Tech lawsuit in history. The governments collusion with Big Tech to encroach on our First Amendant rights was put on display for all to see!

All of this is SO relevant right now, it’s a wonder why no one is talking about it!

Where Dr Shiva’s Lawsuit Began!

Dr Shiva ran in the Massachusetts Republican Primaries, just before the general election, and noticed that STRANGELY, he had won in what appeared to be a landslide, but ONLY in the counties that hand counted their ballots. On the other hand, in the counties that used machines, he lost!

Hmm. That’s not weird at all!

Obviously, he wanted some answers, so he went directly to the Secretary of State to request the ballot images, and take a look at exactly what happened. Dr Shiva essentially wanted to conduct an audit of the election.

However, the SOS’s office replied “WE DELETED THEM”. Yes, you heard that right, they didn’t have the ballot images which they were required to retain by law! Needless to say, Shiva went ahead and exposed the email communications between the SOS office and himself on Twitter. At the time, he had roughly 250k followers…. Now what do you think happened next?!

DING! DING! DING! You guessed it, he was banned instantly! What a coincidence!

Now, let’s think about that for a second. Dr Shiva is running for a Federal US Senate seat in the general elections, and was banned off of social media in the middle of his campaign the minute he showed emails between he, and a public official admitting to breaking the law.

Thus Came the Filing of His $1.2 Billion Dollar Lawsuit Against Twitter!

And here comes the juicy part!

In the preliminary court proceedings, the state actors ADMITTED UNDER OATH, that they have a “Trusted Twitter Partnership”. They described this in detail. They explained that in order to get Dr Shiva banned off of Twitter, all they had to do is contact Twitter through their own “private portal”, and tell them Dr Shiva was spreading “election misinformation”. And just like that ZAP he’s banned…

…Do you understand the magnitude of this?! Big Tech is allowing the government to reach through Twitter, and censor on their behalf! This is a clear 100% undeniable violation of the First Amendment. We’re not just talking about a “private company” anymore, we’re talking about a private company LAUNDERING CENSORSHIP TO THE GOVERNMENT! Reaching THROUGH Twitter via a hotline, and telling them who to ban.

In this case, they silenced the speech of a political candidate in the middle of his campaign! That is some serious SH*T! Oh, but it doesn’t stop there. Dr Shiva went on to discover just how deep the rabbit hole goes. He discovered, that what happened to him was no isolated incident. In fact, what he found was an entire criminal enterprise.

He Called It A “Domestic Censorship Infrastructure”

A “Surveillance System to Surveil, Blacklist, and Silence”. Twitter, with the Harvard Belfer Center, the Department of Homeland Security, CISA, and billionaires including Pierre Omidyar and Mark Zuckerberg.” All working together in a massive conspiracy.

 

“I found a document written by the head of Twitter legal counsel in England talking about how they had set up the Partner Support Portal, PSP to enable the government, the parliamentary security forces of Britain, to report on what they called ‘potential threats’ through Twitter. That same infrastructure was deployed in India in the recent election and then also deployed in Taiwan, Australia, and was brought here in 2020 to the United States.”

So as you can see, this isn’t just an isolated incident. This is systemic. Global. The man literally found PLAYBOOKS used to train staff on controlling speech around elections!

The Election Influence Operations Playbook.

This is the actual training manual used for assessing the “risk level” of certain influencers, (like yours truly). The manual instructs that the influencers be tracked, monitored, and silenced if they pose a significant threat.

Now Coming Back to Elon Musk…

Here we sit at the crossroads, with a potential for a based billionaire to intervene and seize control of this criminal enterprise. What happens if a guy like Elon performs a hostile takeover, and takes over this corrupt company? I’ll tell you! He seizes along with it, all of the data, the algorithms, the history, the EVIDENCE! Mind you, Twitter has sworn under oath before US congress that they do not engage in any of these practices and that their algorithms do not contain any inherent bias!

The United States Government, and governments around the globe are at risk of losing one of their greatest assets for spying, tracking, silencing, rigging elections, and pushing their globalist agenda. They also risk total exposure. And let me tell you, they will not allow that to happen. Not under ANY circumstances!

Not without a FIGHT! This is the US government we’re talking about here. I’m actually surprised that Elon hasn’t already “committed suicide”.

We see now that Twitter is prepared to self destruct in order to preserve its dirty little well kept secrets… But, I have a feeling that Elon knew this in advance. He has a relationship with Jack Dorsey. Maybe Jack is in on this with Elon? We know he has been in communication with other investment groups. This isn’t the end. Something big is about to happen, and I have a funny feeling, Elon has a few tricks up his sleeve!

He did say there was a Plan B if they rejected his offer didn’t he?

Now, I have NO idea what that Plan B is, but something tells me ol Elon isn’t the kind of guy who does things willy-nilly. He has already exposed them for the anti-capitalists they are. So, what does he do next? Your guess is as good as mine! Only time will tell but, I have a feeling we’re about to witness one of the most pivotal moments in modern history. And I for one am HYPE!

So strap in, and buckle up because this is going to be a bumpy ride!

The Mind Control Police: The Government’s War on Thought Crimes and Truth-Tellers

“Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks—a website that published secret information, news leaks, and classified media from anonymous sources—was arrested on April 11, 2019, on charges of helping U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning access and leak more than 700,000 classified military documents that portray the U.S. government and its military as reckless, irresponsible and responsible for thousands of civilian deaths.

Included among the leaked Manning material were the Collateral Murder video (April 2010), the Afghanistan war logs (July 2010), the Iraq war logs (October 2010), a quarter of a million diplomatic cables (November 2010), and the Guantánamo files (April 2011).

The Collateral Murder leak included gunsight video footage from two U.S. AH-64 Apache helicopters engaged in a series of air-to-ground attacks while air crew laughed at some of the casualties. Among the casualties were two Reuters correspondents who were gunned down after their cameras were mistaken for weapons and a driver who stopped to help one of the journalists. The driver’s two children, who happened to be in the van at the time it was fired upon by U.S. forces, suffered serious injuries.”

This article was first published on February 20, 2022

In true Orwellian fashion, the government would have us believe that it is Assange and Manning who are the real criminals for daring to expose the war machine’s seedy underbelly.

Greenwald: Former Intel Officials, Citing Russia, Say Big-Tech Monopoly Power Vital To National Security

https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/greenwald-former-intel-officials-citing-russia-say-big-tech-monopoly-power-vital

Authored by Glenn Greenwald via Substack,

When the U.S. security state announces that Big Tech's centralized censorship power must be preserved, we should ask what this reveals about whom this regime serves.

A group of former intelligence and national security officials on Monday issued a jointly signed letter warning that pending legislative attempts to restrict or break up the power of Big Tech monopolies — Facebook, Google, and Amazon — would jeopardize national security because, they argue, their centralized censorship power is crucial to advancing U.S. foreign policy. The majority of this letter is devoted to repeatedly invoking the grave threat allegedly posed to the U.S. by Russia as illustrated by the invasion of Ukraine, and it repeatedly points to the dangers of Putin and the Kremlin to justify the need to preserve Big Tech's power in its maximalist form. Any attempts to restrict Big Tech's monopolistic power would therefore undermine the U.S. fight against Moscow.

British Court Issues Formal Order to Extradite Julian Assange

Civil liberties in the Anglosphere took a major blow on April 20, 2022 when a magistrate court issued a formal order to extradite WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States where he will face espionage charges there. 

Assange could potentially face a life sentence in prison. 

According to a report by RT, the April 20 ruling could still be appealed. 

The Westminster Magistrates’ Court ruling overturned its previous ruling that rejected Assange’s extradition to the US based on Assange’s deteriorating mental health and the harsh conditions he faced in America’s maximum security prisons. 

Telling the COVID Good Guys from the Bad Guys

https://justusrhope.substack.com/p/telling-the-covid-good-guys-from

How does one navigate when the traditional media all lie? How can an average person figure out who to believe? What is the truth?

When you notice young, healthy athletes suddenly dropping from heart attacks, and Twitter de-platforms anyone who dares mention it, this tells you not to trust Twitter.

Likewise, when Uttar Pradesh, India eradicates COVID with Ivermectin, yet the FDA suggests the drug is only for horses, you cannot trust the FDA.

When the head of the NIAID finances gain-of-function research in China, resulting in a worldwide pandemic, we should not trust them any longer. How about when the Canadian Truckers - many of them loyal military patriots of Canada - get their donations and bank accounts frozen, their trucks impounded, and many arrested?

We should all awaken and check to see how intact our human rights are wherever we live.

When we see a direct correlation between the deaths per million in a country with the more vaccinations, the more deaths, perhaps we should not trust the vaccine manufacturers and any governmental, tech, or media in bed with them.

The American Dream Is Dead: For The First Time, Less Than Half Of Americans Believe They'll Ever Own A Home

https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/american-dream-dead-first-time-less-half-americans-believe-theyll-ever-own-home

By Michael Every of Rabobank

US stocks decided to stage a hefty rally yesterday “because stocks”. That’s not that unusual for said market, but the excuse for why this happened was intellectually lazier than usual.

Apparently it was housing starts data that did the trick at 0.3% m/m rather than -1.6% expected. If so, we hardly have firm foundations for such optimism. First, it’s a volatile series. Second, builders reported soaring prices for the stuff needed to construct homes across the board. Third, starts of single-family homes --you know, the American dream-- were -1.7% m/m, while starts of multi-family units --you know, the American nightmare-- were up 7.5%. In short, fewer houses and far more luxury condos and low-end rental housing to squeeze all the people into who, despite living in a land with nothing but land, can no longer afford a home. But these rental units will be owned by Wall Street. And it’s a one-way street, as The Hill reports “More Americans losing confidence they will ever own a home”: a NY Fed survey found only 43.4% of renters believe they’ll ever own a home, the first reading below 50% in the survey's history.

There Is No Means of Avoiding the Final Collapse

Via International Man

By Nick Giambruno


The Fed has already printed trillions—and shows little sign of slowing down—which means much higher inflation is already baked into the cake.

The only question is how the Fed will respond to it.

Ludwig von Mises, the godfather of free-market Austrian economics, summed up the Fed’s dilemma:

“There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.”

The Fed has two choices:

1) keep printing trillions and let inflation skyrocket

2) tighten monetary policy and watch the markets crash.

In other words, it can sacrifice the stock market or the dollar.

Techno-facism, Techno-feudalism, or Indentured Servitude?

https://rwmalonemd.substack.com/p/techno-facism-techno-feudalism-or

In case you have not noticed, I have been in a bit of a funk lately. The big interdependent trifecta of censorship, state and corporatist-sponsored propaganda, and the role of “Davos Man” in the emerging new world order have been weighing heavy on my mind. Or maybe it’s just that I have been traveling too much, seen and heard too many things, and been the recipient of chronic targeted defamation for too long. Or perhaps I am just homesick for my quiet centered life with my wife Jill, our horses and fruit trees, and our modest Virginia farm/horticultural park. Or all the above.

What has really been eating away at my soul, like some kind of Dementor from JK Rowling’s darkest imaginings, is that we have allowed the billionaires to take over our world, and we have yet to come to terms with the consequences. The party of Davos, with its public facing mask behind the benign name of the World Economic Forum (WEF). What are the practical consequences for how both ourselves and our children will live their lives?

Every House Democrat Voted AGAINST Stopping the Government ‘Monitoring And Prosecuting’ Unvaccinated Americans.

https://thenationalpulse.com/2022/04/07/all-democrats-vote-against-amendment-for-unvaccinated-americans/

All House Democrats on the Judiciary Committee voted against a proposed amendment to a domestic terrorism bill that would have prevented American intelligence and security agencies from receiving taxpayer funds to “monitor, analyze, investigate or prosecute” Americans unvaccinated against COVID-19.

Rep. Thomas Massie broke the news of the party line vote amidst a Judiciary Committee debate over a domestic terrorism bill via Twitter, revealing “Due to a troubling DHS bulletin, @RepAndyBiggsAZ offered an amendment to prevent the targeting of Americans due to their views on COVID vax.”

”Every Dem. voted against his amdt!,” the Kentucky Congressman continued.

The bill in question, H.R. 350 or the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021, authorizes various federal agencies including the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to use taxpayer-funded resources to “analyze and monitor domestic terrorist activity” and “take steps to prevent domestic terrorism.”

Is your church getting paid by the government to convince the flock to get injected?

https://leohohmann.com/2022/04/07/is-your-church-getting-paid-by-the-government-to-convince-the-flock-to-get-injected/

According to a report in the Epoch Times, the state of Pennsylvania is paying churches to convince their members to get vaccinated.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s administration wants pastors, rabbis and other faith leaders to turn their houses of worship into centers for “vaccination events,” using federal grant money as an incentive to lure churches into a partnership with the government.

But this is not just going on in Pennsylvania as reported by the Epoch Times. It’s going on across the United States.

Fusion Center Disinformation Portals To Spread Pro-Government News

https://massprivatei.blogspot.com/2022/04/fusion-center-disinformation-portals-to.html

It appears that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is no longer satisfied with Fox News and Tucker Carlson spreading fear and wants to deliver their own version of fear-induced news. 

As NBC New York revealed, DHS has decided that the best way to counter Americans growing disdain over the never-ending war on terror is to open its very first government-approved disinformation portal. 
"New Jersey's Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness has unveiled a new disinformation portal designed to help people identify truth-obscuring, manufactured information -- from deepfakes to altered videos and text and the groups behind them."
DHS claims the government has a 'higher responsibility' to disseminate news to the public.
"Disinformation can have an insidious impact on the overall threat landscape," NJOHSP Director Laurie Doran said. "In an age where the public has become increasingly dependent on online forums and social media platforms to stay informed, we all have a higher responsibility to scrutinize the information we’re consuming."
Oh no, insidious 'truth-obscuring, manufactured disinformation', is now an 'overall threat landscape' to Americans. What will the Feds do to help us?

"But They All Do It..."

https://www.zerohedge.com/political/they-all-do-it

Authored by Theodore Dalrymple via The Epoch Times,

A disturbing pattern has emerged in French presidential elections: A credible candidate is found almost at the last minute to have committed an illegal act, the revelation of which is intended to spoil or destroy altogether the candidate’s electoral chances.


The latest “victim” of this pattern is Marine Le Pen, who is facing the incumbent president, Emmanuel Macron, in the forthcoming second round of the French presidential election, a repeat of the contest of 2017.

The main difference between the two contests is that, this time round, the polls give Le Pen at least some slight chance of victory, while last time Macron gained not only an overwhelming victory, but from the first had also appeared likely to do so.

Truth bombs from Makary and Prasad: public health officials cannot be trusted with public health decisions

Horowitz: Walgreens recorded who tested positive for COVID, and the results might surprise you

https://www.theblaze.com/op-ed/horowitz-walgreens-recorded-who-tested-positive-for-covid-and-the-results-might-surprise-you

Imagine a pharmacy obsessively promoting availability of a vaccine over every inch of its store, while its own data shows there are more infections among those with the jabs. The data is in plain sight for all to see, yet there is no self-awareness from Walgreens because money and power trump reason, compassion, and regard for health outcomes. The company’s latest data actually shows that the more they make money on vaccines, the more they make money on selling you tests, because after being jabbed, you sure will need them!

At the risk of causing one more set of data to disappear from the internet, I draw attention to the Walgreens COVID-19 Index, which posts the weekly number of tests administered, percentage of positives broken down by vaccination status, and age brackets of each permutation. You know, the sort of useful information countries like the U.K. published but that our own CDC artfully avoided showing the American people. Here is the bar chart worth more than 560 million vaccine doses!

As you can see, even though the boosted represent just 30% of the population, they accounted for 61.6% of the positives among the sample of over 60,000 tests administered by Walgreens stores nationwide during the week beginning April 5. The unjabbed accounted for just 17% of the positives, lower than their share of the population.

Also of note is that the unvaccinated had, by far, the lowest positivity rate of all of the cohorts.

More strange events (athletes dropping, hepatitis in kids): is it the vax?

https://stevekirsch.substack.com/p/more-strange-events-athletes-dropping?token=eyJ1c2VyX2lkIjoxOTg0OTg2LCJwb3N0X2lkIjo1MjM5NDM3MCwiXyI6InVlTStpIiwiaWF0IjoxNjUwMzgzNDM2LCJleHAiOjE2NTAzODcwMzYsImlzcyI6InB1Yi01NDgzNTQiLCJzdWIiOiJwb3N0LXJlYWN0aW9uIn0.AR6EIPiDGCGzBo68dXY575tpC1LEmiUmbdC5ikz8m7s&s=r

Consider the following recent headlines:

The articles on the athlete collapses point the finger at the vaccine.

The articles on the hepatitis outbreaks don’t suspect the COVID vaccines at all since the mainstream experts all think the COVID vaccines are safe and effective. So it’s not even an option that could be considered.

What does VAERS say? It says that the average # of reports for hepatitis in a year is around 8 cases. In 2021, for just the COVID vaccine, there were 304.

The obvious question is, “why are there 8 cases a year before the COVID vaccines (across all 70 vaccines combined), and now 304 cases in 2021 associated with the COVID vaccine?”

As an engineer, it looks to me like the COVID vaccine causes susceptibility to liver damage.

Daddies in Mommie-land

Guest Post by Jim Kunstler

Putin popcorn Memes - Imgflip

Welcome to the season of everything losing ground, at least for Western Civ. Sore-beset with idiots and scoundrels running things, the West stumbles backwards into neo-medieval darkness and superstition, hurling garlic bombs of objurgation against the supposedly wicked Putin along the way.

Your “trusted news sources” in our corner of the world will not tell you this, but the mythologized golem of the West’s collective sick mind, The Putin, mounted Operation Z in Ukraine at our country’s foolish behest. It was a twisted variation of the old head-trip Let’s You and Him Fight — described so well in psychologist Eric Berne’s classic book Games People Play. It’s a game instigated generally by women. The West detests the actual Mr. Putin for systemically and doggedly having to correct the mischief that the USA set in motion there in 2014 — putting out a dumpster fire we kept feeding for eight years.

Mainly we hate the Russian president for doing what he said he would do, acting like a man, literally having to set boundaries for the unruly children, like Daddy used to do. America hates daddies. To America, all daddies are monsters (rapists!). That’s why America wants to turn all daddies into mommies. Anyway, we barely remember what daddies used to do. The context for daddies — the family — has been obliterated in America by every agency and institution in the land. The only role available these days is the chimerical creature known as a “baby daddy,” which is as much a baby as a daddy, developmentally speaking. Real daddies are men, which is to say: not babies. Mr. Putin acts like a man, especially having to do a dirty job that needs doing, without complaint. America can’t stand that.

If the USA and its NATO allies actually cared about Ukraine, we would have just left the place alone to slowly settle into the de-industrialized agricultural backwater it was becoming. And if we wanted to prevent widespread devastation once Operation Z got underway, we would have promoted peace talks, with an emphasis on our previous declaration that Ukraine would not be a candidate to join NATO. Instead, we set up Ukraine as a launching pad for annoying Russia (while also using Ukraine as a money laundromat for public officials and arms-makers).

America is a drama queen, like the Queen Bee in one of those Real Housewives shows on cable TV, whose entire purpose in life is creating colorful conflicts within her circle of sisters. Daddy is not needed around that house, except offstage maybe as the wide-receiver for a multi-million-dollar paycheck courtesy of the NFL (a rival entertainment). When one of America’s drama queen stunts goes wrong, the Queen Bee melts into a puddle of tears — boo hoo — tripping the empathy toggle.The sisters cluster around her, beating their wings. Somebody, please, help her feel better… fetch her a glass of pino grigio or a Xanax!

Drama Queen Bee America does not like how the Ukraine drama is playing out. The mean old Daddy Putin is rocking the joint, cleaning out the place like Gary Cooper in some Long Branch Saloon of the Eurasian steppe — heaving all those Azov Nazis through the swinging doors out into the dusty street. The other sisters in the NATO circle were induced to acting as cheerleaders for the Azov boys, and now Mr. Putin has gone and turned off Europe’s gas. Western Civ is about to be sent to bed without dinner — the ultimate daddy trick. Now the sisters are all going boo hoo. Nothing is working for the sisterhood.

America’s president, “Joe Biden,” suits the current national script perfectly. He’s a mere prop for the drama queens. No one mistakes him for “Daddy.” He’s the old, impotent, intemperate, often confused “Grampy,” a figure of bathos and derision, a shell of a man who, in his prime, lived just to work his official positions for millions in grift. How, otherwise, do you account for his fortune? The Ukraine money laundromat was one of his favorite stops, managed carefully by cheerleaders Victoria Nuland, Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, and NSC official Fiona Hill, America’s foreign policy establishment there back in the day.

But who, exactly, is managing Grampy now backstage in the White House? My guess would be Susan Rice because you never hear anything about Susan Rice or her role there: Director of the Domestic Policy Council of the United States. Wow! Sounds weighty. When was the last time you saw her name in The New York Times or cable TV news? You’d think they’d be interested in her doings. Yet I doubt that one-in-a-hundred US citizens could tell you who Susan Rice is and what she does. (Was that her the other day in a bunny suit at the White House Easter Egg Roll, assisting a confused Grampy offstage?)

Somewhere in the White House there must be phone logs that record how many times a day Ms. Rice makes and receives phone calls across town to and from the Kalorama neighborhood of DC. Does that make Barack Obama America’s secret daddy? Or is he playing a somewhat different role… like, head of a cartel?

The US Cries About War Crimes While Imprisoning A Journalist For Exposing Its War Crimes

Fauci: Judge 'superseded' CDC authority in mask ruling

Dr. Anthony Fauci , in an interview with "60 Minutes" in March 2020, explains why he's against universal masking during a pandemic. (Video screenshot)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is an advisory agency that proposes health guidelines to the executive branch, but Dr. Anthony Fauci complained in an interview that the federal court that blocked the Biden administration's federal transport mask mandate "superseded the authority of the CDC."

In an interview with The Tennessean newspaper of Nashville, Fauci said the mask mandate was extended because the CDC "wanted to see what the pattern of infection is during this bit of a surge we're seeing [in areas of the country]."

"I think it's unfortunate that a court order came in and, I believe, superseded the authority of the CDC," said Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle ruled that the CDC failed to provide justification for the Biden administration's extension of the mandate 15 days to May 3 and did not go through the required notice and comment period for federal rulemaking. The judge found that the mandate, in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act, was outside the scope of the CDC's authority, calling it "arbitrary" and "capricious."

"Because our system does not permit agencies to act unlawfully even in pursuit of desirable ends, the court declares unlawful and vacates the mask mandate," the Trump-appointed judge wrote.

Major U.S. airlines immediately made masks voluntary, putting the carriers in line with major foreign airlines that already had made that move. Amtrak also dropped its mask requirement while stating "masks are welcome and remain an important preventive measure against COVID-19."

On Tuesday night, the Justice Department and the CDC released a statement saying we "disagree with the district court's decision and will appeal, subject to CDC's conclusion that the order remains necessary for public health."

The CDC argues that the seven-day moving average of COVID cases has increased.

However, every state that had a mask mandate has lifted it. And COVID-19 data collected by the New York Times shows that the mandates had no impact on case rates. The Manhattan Institute’s City Journal published a graph based on that data comparing the cases in the 11 states that never mandated masks with the 39 that did.

Further, the "risk of contracting coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) during air travel is lower than from an office building, classroom, supermarket, or commuter train," affirms an article in JAMA Network, a publication of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

And scientific studies and data accumulated from two years of mask mandates indicate they are not effective in curbing the spread of the virus.

Fauci, in fact, spoke out against universal masking amid a pandemic in a "60 Minutes" interview in March 2020, affirming the standard viewpoint at that time.  He warned of "unintended consequences," saying there's "no reason to be walking around with a mask" in "the middle of an outbreak."

Fauci later said he told Americans they didn't need to wear a mask because he wanted to ensure there was enough supply for frontline workers.

However, at the time of his interview, the executive director of the World Health Organization health emergencies program, Dr. Mike Ryan, said there was "no specific evidence to suggest that the wearing of masks by the mass population has any potential benefit."

"In fact, there's some evidence to suggest the opposite in the misuse of wearing a mask properly or fitting it properly," he said.

The WHO at the time recommended people not wear face masks unless they are sick with COVID-19 or caring for someone who is sick.

In March 2020, the CDC also said masks "are usually not recommended" in "non-health care settings."

Surely now masses of travelers will die of Covid due to maskless flights.

But if not, are CDC and Fauci going to admit that their mask recommendations were not based on any science or evidence? 🤔

Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis tweeted Monday after the mask ruling: "Great to see a federal judge in Florida follow the law and reject the Biden transportation mask mandate. Both airline employees and passengers deserve to have this misery end."

Obama scolds unvaxxed: Hey, we 'clinically tested' shots on billions of people

In a speech at Stanford University on disinformation, former President Obama scolds people who have chosen not to take the experimental COVID-19 vaccine shots. (Video screenshot)

In a direct appeal to the Silicon Valley tech giants to censor "misinformation" on social media, former President Obama on Thursday unwittingly affirmed the contention of critics of the COVID-19 vaccines that the fact that clinical trials have not been completed makes the people who have received the shots part of an experiment.

"Despite the fact that we have now essentially clinically tested the vaccine on billions of people worldwide, around one in five Americans is still willing to put themselves at risk, and put their families at risk, rather than get vaccinated," he said in a speech at Stanford University.

"People are dying because of misinformation."

The former president's remarks illustrate the danger of censoring "misinformation," if only because one person's misinformation might well be another person's evidence-based opinion or eventually become common knowledge.

Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms notoriously have censored the voices of some of the world's most highly qualified medical scientists because their views don't align with the ever-evolving government and establishment media position on the pandemic and related issues.

President Biden and CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, for example, assured Americans when the vaccines were rolled out that if you get vaccinated – for a disease that the CDC says has a survival rate of nearly 100% for people without chronic comorbidities – you won't get infected and you won't transmit the virus.

That hasn't turned out to be true, confirming the censored warnings of scientists such as Dr. Robert Malone and Dr. Peter McCullough, who in January observed the "crumbling" establishment narrative that 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 Walensky had to admit at a forum last month that the CDC exercised "too little caution and too much optimism" about the effectiveness of the vaccines in preventing infection, transmission and deaths. And she acknowledged science isn't "black and white," it's "gray," and "sometimes it takes months and years to actually find out the answer."

In February, suggesting Americans can't handle the "answer," unnamed CDC officials told the New York Times that the agency had withheld most of its data regarding COVID-19 for fear it would be misinterpreted by critics.

Regarding the vaccine "experiment," Obama and Biden administration officials don't mention the fact that clinical trials are ongoing for vaccines that came to market under emergency use authorization in less than one year while vaccines normally require a process that takes five to 10 years, in part because of the need to test for long-term side effects.

Among the thousands of pages of FDA documents on the Pfizer trials – which the agency was forced to release after pressing for a 75-year delay – is evidence the agency had concern about many serious side effects that a growing number of people now are reporting to have suffered.

Obama's comment Thursday about the clinical testing of the vaccines on the global population echoed a revealing remark by a member of the FDA vaccine panel last fall prior to a vote on whether to recommend the Pfizer vaccine for children ages 5-11.

Dr. Eric Rubin, editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, reflected the reluctance of members to recommend the Pfizer vaccine for young children because of the lack of safety data. Rubin said that, for example, myocarditis is “a side effect that we can’t measure yet.” But he concluded the shots should be given to children anyway.

"We're never going to learn about how safe the vaccine is unless we start giving it," he argued. "That’s just the way it goes."

See Obama's remarks:

NOW - Obama: "Despite the fact that we have now essentially clinically tested the vaccine on billions of people worldwide. Around 1 in 5 Americans is still going to put themselves at risk... rather than get vaccinated." pic.twitter.com/w6KCFhAsXf

The New York Times reported on Thursday ahead of Obama's Stanford appearance that "in many private meetings and public appearances over the last year, the former president has waded deeply into the public fray over misinformation and disinformation, warning that the scourge of falsehoods online has eroded the foundations of democracy at home and abroad."

In his Stanford speech, the paper said, he was "expected to add his voice to demands for rules to rein in the flood of lies polluting public discourse."

It was under Obama that the Justice Department and the FBI pursued the Trump-Russia collusion hoax adopted by establishment media as the unassailable truth, while it now appears that it was Hillary Clinton who colluded with Russia to try to win the 2016 election, suggests evidence in a special counsel investigation.

Letting the data speak
Meanwhile, CDC and U.K. government data have indicated that the COVID-19 vaccines not only are ineffective in preventing cases and transmission, they rapidly lose protection against severe illness or death while posing risks.

A newly published long-term study by the prestigious British journal The Lancet that followed up on participants in the Moderna and Pfizer trials found the vaccines had no effect on overall mortality.

Last month, a former adviser to the FDA commissioner who continues to serve in an oversight role said the agency is ignoring its requirement to disclose clear safety and efficacy problems with the COVID-19 vaccines. Also in March, an Army flight surgeon testified in federal court that she was ordered by high-level command not to discuss the controversy over Department of Defense data indicating a massive spike in serious injuries and illnesses among military personnel when the vaccines were rolled out in 2021. And, mounting reports of serious injury and death on the CDC's vaccine-injury website, an analysis of CDC data by a former Wall Street executive an an insurance industry expert shows an alarming rise in excess deaths among Millennials over the past year coinciding the COVID vaccine rollout.

In April, the Food and Drug Administration released a briefing document that says the composition of the current COVID-19 vaccines might need to be changed to ensure high levels of protection.

Survey: 53 percent of Canadians just $200 away from insolvency

ORIGINAL LINK

(THE POST MILLENNIAL) – A new Ipsos survey conducted for MNP suggests that 31 percent of Canadians aren't earning enough to cover their bills. Respondents said that their incomes aren't covering bills and debt payments, with 53 percent of respondents saying that they are $200 away from insolvency.

The survey, of 2,000 Canadians, was conducted between March 9 and 15, taking place just a week before the Bank of Canada raised its policy rate in an effort to curb inflation that has already hit Canadians' pockets hard.

The survey shows that 52 percent of respondents were already feeling the effects of high interest rates.

Stolen election? 72% of Dems still think Hillary lost because of 'Russian interference'

ORIGINAL LINK

Hillary Clinton speaking at the Brown & Black Presidential Forum at Sheslow Auditorium at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, Jan. 11, 2016 (Gage Skidmore, Wikimedia Commons)

There remain many questions unanswered about the irregularities of the 2020 presidential election.

But it's known that there were several malign influences at work against President Trump, including the $420 million Mark Zuckerberg gave to local election officials which often ended up being used to recruit voters from Democrat districts, a campaign a later analysis charged essentially bought the election for Joe Biden.

Also, many elections officials, based on COVID-19 worries, simply ignored their own state laws about mail-in ballots and ballot harvesting. And then there was the concerted legacy and social media campaign to suppress accurate, and damaging, reporting about the Biden family's overseas business scandals just days before the election. A Media Research Center study showed had that information been distributed routinely, enough voters would have withheld their support to deprive Biden of the election win.

President Trump has been blasted by his critics for his description of 2020 as a "stolen election."

But a new poll shows that even today, 72% of Democrats believe the 2016 election was stolen from Hillary Clinton.

Rasmussen Reports explained, "Fears of Russian interference in U.S. politics remain widespread, and Democratic voters overwhelmingly agree with Hillary Clinton that Russia is to blame for her defeat in 2016."

"The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it is likely that Russian interference changed the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, including 26% who say it’s Very Likely. Forty-six percent (46%) don’t think it’s likely Russian interference changed the 2016 election, including 32% who say it is Not At All Likely," the organization reported.

Clinton herself said in an interview in 2020, "It's very clear that Russia succeeded. They believe that they were able to influence the minds and even votes of Americans, so why would they stop?"

The poll said 72% of Democrats "believe it’s likely the 2016 election outcome was changed by Russian interference, but that opinion is shared by only 30% of Republicans and 39% of voters not affiliated with either major party."

Rasmussen explained, "Last week, CNN reported that U.S. intelligence sources believe Russian President Vladimir Putin may be 'dialing up his attempts to interfere with American elections.' Fifty-nine percent (59%) of voters think it’s likely Russia will try to interfere in this year’s congressional midterm elections, including 38% who say such interference is Very Likely. Thirty-four percent (34%) don’t believe Russian interference in the midterm elections is likely, including 16% who say it is Not At All Likely."

The survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters was done April 14-17. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

It explained, "A majority (53%) of Democrats believe it is Very Likely that Russia will try to interfere in the midterm elections, an opinion shared by 33% of Republicans and 27% of unaffiliated voters. Twenty-two percent (22%) of Republicans, nine percent (9%) of Democrats and 17% of unaffiliated voters think Russian interference in the congressional midterm elections is Not At All Likely."

The report said voters with annual incomes above $200,000 "are most likely to think Russian interference changed the presidential election outcome in 2016, while those with incomes between $50,000 and $100,000 are most skeptical toward claims of Russian interference in the 2016 election."

Rasmussen said, "President Joe Biden’s strongest supporters are most certain that Russian interference changed the 2016 election, and to fear future interference. Among voters who Strongly Approve of Biden’s job performance as president, 86% believe it’s at least somewhat likely Russian interference changed the outcome of the 2016 presidential election and 75% think it is Very Likely that Russia will try to interfere in this year’s congressional midterm elections. By contrast, among voters who Strongly Disapprove of Biden’s performance, only 18% think the 2016 election was changed by Russian interference, and just 20% say Russian interference in this year’s midterms is Very Likely."

Rhode Island Dems Seek To Double State Income Tax For Parents Of Unvaccinated Minors

ORIGINAL LINK
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Rhode Island Democrats have introduced a bill that would double the state income tax for residents who have unvaccinated children.

Yes, really.

State Senator Samuel Bell (D) submitted the punitive bill last month, which orders all Rhode Island residents and taxpayers over 16 years old to receive the COVID-19 injection and boosters mandated by the state’s director of the department of health.

Anybody who violates that order “shall owe twice the amount of personal income taxes” to the state.

This act would mandate all residents sixteen (16) years or older to be vaccinated against COVID-19. If a resident is under sixteen (16) years of age the resident would be required to be immunized against COVID-19, with the responsibility for ensuring compliance falling on all parents or guardians with medical consent powers.

Additionally any person who violates this chapter would be required to pay a monthly civil penalty of fifty dollars ($50.00) and would owe twice the amount of personal income taxes.

In order for parents to receive an exemption for a minor, they will need to have three different doctors state on record that the child is “not fit for immunization” and the child themselves will have to sign the form.

Additionally, the state’s health department will have the power to investigate any petition for exemption.

Bell pointed to a survey conducted by Harvard, Northeastern, Northwestern and Rutgers Universities to justify the statewide vaccine mandate, claiming 65% of residents support it.

With @DanMcGowan reporting that Rhode Islanders still strongly support a universal vaccine mandate, despite the McKee Administration pushing hard for the surrender policy, it’s time for us to pass my mandate bill. Cases are rising again. Surrender isn’t working. pic.twitter.com/hxXkgF8bcG

— Sam Bell (@SamuelWBell) April 18, 2022

What Bell fails to mention is that the survey is conducted with “nonprobability sampling”, which is more unreliable than random sampling because it’s prone to selection bias, and therefore less likely to represent the larger population.

Additionally, the nonprobability sampling was drawn from participants in all 50 states rather than within Rhode Island itself.

Though this draconian bill clearly violates the bodily autonomy of Rhode Islanders, Democrats may still succeed in pushing the bill through given they have a 33-5 supermajority in the state senate and a 65-10 supermajority in the House.

Notably, all 38 state senate seats are up for reelection in the 2022 midterms, as well as all 75 seats in the House.

"But They All Do It..."

ORIGINAL LINK
"But They All Do It..."

Authored by Theodore Dalrymple via The Epoch Times,

A disturbing pattern has emerged in French presidential elections: A credible candidate is found almost at the last minute to have committed an illegal act, the revelation of which is intended to spoil or destroy altogether the candidate’s electoral chances.

The latest “victim” of this pattern is Marine Le Pen, who is facing the incumbent president, Emmanuel Macron, in the forthcoming second round of the French presidential election, a repeat of the contest of 2017.

The main difference between the two contests is that, this time round, the polls give Le Pen at least some slight chance of victory, while last time Macron gained not only an overwhelming victory, but from the first had also appeared likely to do so.

The outcome was never in any kind of doubt, as it is now.

Le Pen is usually described as being of the far right, though in fact her economic ideas are in some respects not very different from those of the candidate of the far left, Jean-Luc MĂ©lanchon, who came not very far behind her in the first round of the election, in which the two candidates who receive the most votes go forward to the second, and decisive, round.

Perhaps economic affinity helps to explain why almost as many voters for the far-left candidate say they will vote for the candidate of the far right as say they will vote for the centrist candidate, Macron. MĂ©lanchon himself has expressed the wish that not a single one of his voters should vote for Le Pen, without, however, having asked them to vote for Macron. He seems, then, to be hoping for a high rate of abstention, which would strengthen his argument that the current French political system is undemocratic and illegitimate, and that the country needs yet another new constitution.

Le Pen has just been accused by the European Union’s antifraud office of malversation of funds, 136,993.99 euros (about $148,000) of the Union’s money to be precise, while she was a member of the European Parliament between 2004 and 2017. For example, she is accused of having claimed 23,100 euros (about $25,000) for the purchase of little objects such as pens and bags to be given out at her political party’s annual conference in 2014, which is not allowed under the rules.

It might be a coincidence that the accusation of something that was allegedly done eight years ago has emerged in the week before the election, but I do not think many people will be found to believe it.

After all, Le Pen is decidedly hostile to the European Union, while Macron is almost a religious devotee of it.

There are no prizes for guessing, then, which of the two candidates the Union would prefer to win.

This is not the same as saying that Le Pen is innocent, which is why I put inverted commas round the world “victim.” When I mentioned the allegation to a French friend, who voted for MĂ©lanchon and had decided to abstain in the second round, though she said she preferred Le Pen to Macron, she exclaimed “But they all do it!”

This was what was commonly said when François Fillon, the favorite to win the 2017 presidential election, was suddenly (and conveniently) revealed to have employed his wife at public expense for a fictitious job. He was not innocent, but he had been doing it for at least 15 years. Could it really have been mere coincidence that it came to light just as he was set fair to win an election? True, a presidential candidate’s record comes under unusually close scrutiny, but Fillon had also been prime minister, so that he was by no means an unknown figure.

It’s difficult to resist the conclusion that it’s someone’s candidacy, not his fraud, that his accusers object to.

While the accusation of fraud sank Fillon’s electoral chances (he was subsequently sentenced to five years’ imprisonment, a sentence that he’s still appealing), many people in France shrugged their shoulders in the belief that what he had done, while criminal, was normal for the political class, and that there must be many others in the same boat.

It’s instructive to compare this with an anecdote about Charles de Gaulle when he was facing François Mitterrand in the presidential election. His team came to him with very discreditable information about Mitterrand (not very difficult to find). De Gaulle, however, refused to use it. He said that he had always known that Mitterrand was an unscrupulous scoundrel, but if by chance he won the election, he would still be president of the Republic. De Gaulle, who was hardly free of ego, recognized that the position was greater than the man—any man.

Awkward and difficult as he was, perhaps even megalomanic, there’s no doubt that de Gaulle had a certain probity. No one ever accused him of feeding at the trough of public expenditure, for instance, or of having his finger in many commercial pies. He never amassed a huge fortune, nor did he peddle influence or join the board of giant corporations after his retirement from political life at an immense salary for doing very little. He could therefore take an elevated, even lordly, view of politics, because he could not himself ever have been accused of the kind of wrongdoing that, alas, we now expect of our elected representatives.

“They all do it,” “They are all the same”—how many times have I heard this! And if they all do it, and they are all the same, but we must nevertheless choose one among them, we feel besmirched ourselves, as if we had participated in something discreditable or even disgusting. And this is one of the dangerous feelings that makes people hanker after something other than democracy.

The accusation against Le Pen could conceivably backfire, so patently is it timed to influence the election, but I still think that Macron will win. Furthermore, I think any other result would be extremely dangerous, even catastrophic, for France, which is not to avow any admiration whatsoever for Macron. Most elections, not only in France, are a choice between la peste et le cholĂ©ra, the plague and cholera.

Something Is Rotten In The State Of Shanghai's Latest COVID Lockdowns

 https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/something-rotten-state-shanghais-latest-covid-lockdowns

Submitted by QTR's Fringe Finance

Make no doubt about it, there’s something seriously disturbing about the state of the recent Covid lockdowns taking place in Shanghai. Even for China.

Here is what the outbreak looks like, if we are to believe the numbers coming out of China. You’ll have to excuse me for being frank, but I simply don’t believe them. China has lied about nearly everything since the beginning of the pandemic, and they certainly don’t have the rest of the world’s best interest in mind now that they are allying with Russia economically.

 

Source: NY Times

Rather, I believe the numbers are likely being exaggerated one way or the other (just as I believe China does with their macroeconomic data), in order to meet the needs of whatever agenda the CCP is trying to push.


Here we are, two years into Covid, with ample time behind us to have studied the virus, developed vaccines, boosters and therapeutics and allowed for natural immunity to spread – and China is locking down the city of 26.3 million people at the first sign of a couple cases of Covid.

Information Warfare From Pre-History to Ukraine

 https://www.theburningplatform.com/2022/04/19/information-warfare-from-pre-history-to-ukraine/

Guest Post by Joe Lauria

The Ukraine war is rife with information warfare from both sides, rising to a ubiquity and sophistication perhaps never seen before.

The first thing to keep in mind is that information warfare is war. War by other means, but war nonetheless. The object is to win. To defeat your opponent. Information Warfare, as it is now called but known as propaganda earlier, has been around in rudimentary form from the beginning of humanity, evolving over millennia largely by the advancement of technology, political systems and the education of populations.

In pre-history, we can see a kind of information warfare in the culture of war, sending a message both to the domestic group and to the enemy. This took the form of beating drums, for instance, which remains with us today in the expression of “beating the drums of war.” But also in dance, and chant, and decoration of the warrior. All this prepared the people for war and was intended to instill fear in the enemy.

With settlement in cities, and the development of writing – the start of so-called civilization – new technologies were used in what we call today information warfare. Architecture played an important role to inspire awe in both the ruler’s subjects and in his enemies. The lions on the gates of Babylon, the pyramids at Zoser and Giza and the triumphal arches of Rome sent messages of grandeur and power to friend and foe alike.

 https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-04-18-global-intoxication-explains-the-fall-of-humanity.html

(Natural News) Humanity is intoxicated to the point of suicidal collapse.

Note the word root “toxic” found in the word “intoxicated.” It doesn’t just refer to consuming alcohol, but to a long list of behaviors, substances and desires that turn off rational thought and thrust people into bad decision making.

Here’s a short list of intoxication vectors affecting humanity right now:

  • Money (blinds people to rationality)
  • Medications (especially psychotropic drugs)
  • Social media (begging for likes)
  • Cult acceptance (LGBT cults, etc.)
  • Sex (addition, power, perversion)
  • Water supply (fluoride, other toxins)
  • Electropollution (5G, wifi, broadcast signals)
  • Air (aerosolized toxins, chemtrails)
  • Food (pesticides, GMOs)
  • Alcohol (addiction)
  • Recreational drugs (addiction, dumbing down)
  • Television (opiate of the masses)
  • Technology (blind worship of tech as your god)
  • Power over others (the power to control people)

Most of humanity is preoccupied with these intoxicating substances, dynamics and powers, rendering them unable to process the reality of the world around them. As a result, they are not preparing for the global food scarcity and debt bomb collapse that are both being engineered.

Mass intoxication is also accomplished through the catapulting of lies by the corporate media. In essence, this is a kind of sorcery that makes people believe they are seeing things that don’t exist. For example, the entire corporate media ran with the covid-19 psychological terrorism campaign, convincing people to mask their children, shut down their businesses and be afraid to go outside (for nearly two years in some cases).

Officials Manipulated COVID Data to Exaggerate Crisis, Mathematician Tells RFK, Jr.

ORIGINAL LINK

Guest Post by Susan Olmstead

“Data was very easily used by influencers and decision-makers to fit particular narratives,” Norman Fenton, Ph.D., a mathematician at Queen Mary University of London, said in an interview on “RFK Jr. The Defender Podcast.”

norman felton rfk jr podcast feature

From the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Norman Fenton, Ph.D., could see health officials were misusing data and misleading the public.

A professor of risk information management at Queen Mary University of London, Fenton is a mathematician who focuses on critical decision-making and quantifying uncertainty.

Throughout the pandemic, he closely examined and criticized how officials used data to make decisions about lockdowns, testing and vaccines.

Fenton spoke last week with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on “RFK Jr. The Defender Podcast.”

“When the COVID pandemic emerged, what kind of challenges did you specifically see?” Kennedy asked Fenton.

Fenton replied:

“It was clear I think from the start that most of the data that governments put out — not just the UK government, but most governments around the world … were kind of misleading because it was based on very easily manipulated statistics.”

This was true of both the nature of COVID itself and the vaccines, Fenton said.

“There was an immediate rush to draw conclusions, which were sort of based on over-simplistic data on case numbers and deaths,” he said.  “… the problem was that that data was very easily used by influencers and decision-makers to fit particular narratives that exaggerated the scale of the crisis.”

Fenton’s team published some of the first research providing more accurate estimates about the infection rate versus the fatality rate compared with official estimates he said were based on faulty data.

The research showed the virus was more widespread than people assumed, but nowhere near as dangerous as was being claimed.

Fenton also addressed issues with PCR tests.

Although it was clear early on that a proper understanding of the virus depended on accurate diagnostic tests, he said, “we were initially led to believe that the PCR test was an accurate diagnostic test.”

“But later, of course, we discovered that wasn’t true. And the impact of that has been catastrophic,” he said.

Kennedy agreed. “The magnitude of [the epidemic] was enormously and deceptively amplified by the misuse of the PCR test,” he said.

Fenton first came under attack in the summer and early fall of 2020, when he challenged how COVID deaths were classified, he said, and questioned the widespread testing of asymptomatic people.

“That was when we were finding the real problems about the false positives and the scale of the false positives,” Fenton said.

Excessive testing led to “absolutely ridiculous decisions,” he said, including new lockdowns.

Information concerning deaths following COVID vaccination also was manipulated, Fenton said, as part of the official claim that the vaccine was the only way to keep people from becoming seriously ill and dying.

Data adjusted to take into account misclassification show a peak in mortality shortly after vaccination, he said, cautioning:

“Now, of course, it could well be that these are people who are indeed immunosuppressed seriously. Also … the vaccination might just be bringing forward the death, which would’ve occurred shortly afterward anyway.

“But nevertheless, that’s what we believe is there in the data, but is of course being hidden.”
