COMPARE AND CONTRAST: Trump and Biden Hold Rallies in Wilkes-Barre — TRUMP FILLS ARENA WITH OVERFLOW CROWD, Biden Can’t Even Fill High School Gym (VIDEO)

ORIGINAL LINK

81 million votes!

Do you remember when President Trump won Pennsylvania by 795,000 votes in a landslide and then Democrats locked the doors on the counting rooms and manufactured a million votes in five days to steal the state?

We do.

On Tuesday Joe Biden held a rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, and talked about gun control in the swing state.

Joe Biden could not even fill a high school gym.

And we are told this dementia patient won Pennsylvania?

What an awful joke. Look at this dismal crowd.

Watch the video below:

President Donald Trump held a rally in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania on Saturday evening.

He will be joined by Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate state Sen. Doug Mastriano, U.S. senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz and U.S. representative candidate Jim Bognet. All the candidates have been endorsed by Trump.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene will also speak tonight at the Trump rally.

Thousands of people lined up to see and listen to President Trump.

THOUSANDS have already lined up for tonight’s 7pm Save America rally with President Donald Trump in Scranton, Pennsylvania!

Children’s Health Defense Deplatformed

children's health defense deplatformed

Story at-a-glance

  • Without warning August 17, 2022, Facebook and Instagram simultaneously deplatformed the Children’s Health Defense (CHD). This followed a lawsuit and appeal filed by the CHD against Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg and three fact-checking outfits for censorship
  • The CHD produced documents showing the CDC is advising Big Tech of the kind of content they should watch. Hours after the CHD was deplatformed, the CDC announced a major restructure in response to a flawed response to COVID-19
  • Two days later, the CDC quietly changed the COVID-19 guidelines to indicate that the vaccines are ineffective, just as the CHD and others have claimed for over one year
  • Deplatforming and censorship of free speech are just two ways that technocrats are eroding personal freedoms that most Americans have taken for granted for decades. The introduction of Britain’s Online Safety Bill bears watching as it will take significant steps to curtail speech and appears to be a blueprint being considered in the U.S.
  • There are steps each of us must take to defend our freedom of speech, including the First Amendment rights of those with whom we disagree; consider using alternative social media platforms, subscribe to the newsletters of content creators your like and contact your political representatives to take a firm stand against censorship

Without warning August 17, 2022, Facebook and Instagram simultaneously unpublished and suspended the Children’s Health Defense (CHD) accounts.1 This wasn’t the first account that Facebook or Instagram deleted after the owners published information about COVID-19 or vaccinations they felt was “misinformation,” and it likely won’t be the last.

Robert F Kennedy Jr. is an attorney and founder of Children’s Health Defense. He’s also the co-founder and president of an environmental group called Waterkeeper Alliance.2 He helped found the Alliance in 1999, through which he fought worldwide for clean water.

According to a press release, he left the organization in November 2020 to “devote himself, full-time, to other issues.” Those other issues have been the fight for children’s health against hypocritical recommendations by public health “experts.”3

In February 2021, Instagram banned Kennedy’s personal account, which they claimed was “sharing debunked claims about the coronavirus or vaccines.”4 The removal of his Instagram account came as no surprise to people who had been paying attention in 2020 when privately owned social media companies began censoring users, often at the behest of government officials, basically qualifying themselves as bona fide instruments of fascism.

Just days after the announcement of Kennedy’s resignation from Waterkeeper Alliance, he appeared on the “Ron Paul Liberty Report,”5 during which he talked about evidence that suggested that his father, Robert Kennedy, was assassinated by a CIA agent hired as a security guard.

In an Off-Guardian article,6 Edward Curtin highlighted some of the close ties between the CIA and corporate mainstream media, which suggest that the organization’s role in the flood of censorship that started in 2020 may be more significant than most people imagine.

Removing Kennedy’s Instagram account in February 2021 appeared to be a knee-jerk reaction to a CNN Business report7 published the day before, which claimed that Instagram “continued to prominently feature anti-vaxxer accounts in its search results.”

The Children’s Health Defense Deplatformed by Meta

According to The Defender, Meta/Facebook and Instagram did not give any warning to CHD when they simultaneously shut down and suspended them August 17, 2022. The accounts had hundreds of thousands of followers. Notification from Facebook included the statement, “We encourage free expression, but don’t allow false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm.”8

Two years earlier, in August 2020, CHD had filed a lawsuit charging Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook and three fact-checking outfits with censoring public health posts and fraudulently defaming CHD.9

In an appeal filed July 29, 2022, CHD submitted additional documents produced by the CDC that showed the CDC advised Big Tech to “‘be on the lookout’ for various topics the CDC considers to be misinformation including COVID-19 vaccine shedding, VAERS reports, spike protein data and more.”10

As a side note, it’s important to recognize that the CDC was also warning Big Tech to identify and remove information posted about the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), which is co-managed by the CDC and the FDA.11 In other words, the organization doesn’t trust their own data, which is checked and confirmed by their staff.

Shortly after CHD was deplatformed, CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky announced plans to overhaul the agency.12 Walensky admitted that their “response to COVID-19 was flawed and the agency committed a number of missteps in its management of the pandemic.”13

Her objective appears to be to reorganize the agency to restore the public’s trust in the CDC. As CNN14 points out, the debacle with the COVID-19 pandemic began in the early months when the CDC released a flawed test to public health laboratories, which they produced.

The missteps, confusing guidance and ineffective actions continued throughout the pandemic. Walensky’s plan to reorganize the CDC15 includes creating a new office of intergovernmental affairs and a new executive council, as well as a new equity office to increase diversity in the workforce. In addition, she plans to request new powers for the CDC, none of which are cost-cutting measures.

Paradoxically, Meta Censors Speech to ‘Protect’ Free Speech

Kennedy is the chairman of CHD and the chief legal counsel. Meta is the parent company of Facebook and Instagram. After CHD was deplatformed, Kennedy made this statement:16

“Facebook is acting here as a surrogate for the federal government’s crusade to silence all criticism of draconian government policies. Our constitutional framers recognized this peril of government censorship.

We don’t need the First Amendment to protect popular or government-approved speech. They incorporated the First Amendment specifically to protect free expression of dissenting opinions. They understood that a government that can silence its critics has a license for every atrocity.”

Ask anyone who escaped from communist countries or Nazi Germany, and they will tell you that one of the chief methods of control was to silence anyone who criticized the government’s narrative. And, as history has borne out, it gave those governments license for horrible atrocities against humanity.

According to a CBS News article17 on CHD being deplatformed, Meta began cracking down on what it judged as false information, harassment and threats of violence in 2016. Since then, they’ve hired more than 40,000 people to “reduce the distribution of content that doesn’t violate its rules, but has been rated false by independent fact-checkers, so that it doesn’t go viral.”18

Even though free speech is a fundamental right that most Americans take for granted, censorship of free speech is one more way that technocrats are chipping away at personal freedom and controlling your thoughts and beliefs.

UK Online Bill Raises Risk of Censorship and US Following

Another peg planned in the removal of free speech is the U.K.’s Online Safety Bill. It was introduced to Britain’s Parliament in June 2022 and, as of this writing, is still in the House of Commons before being sent to the House of Lords.19 The bill seeks to take a giant step toward eliminating free speech under the guise of “protecting” its citizens from free speech.

It has come under fire from civil rights organizations that recognize it gives unprecedented censorship power to the secretary of state and the Office of Communications (Ofcom), with limited parliamentary or judicial oversight.20 The Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), a free market think tank founded in 1955, called the Online Safety Bill “unsafe” and outlined the broad scope of power it gives, which “raises significant issues for free speech, privacy and innovation.”

The report noted that the bill also opens the door to how “harmful” speech could be defined and that it imposes large regulatory costs on startups and smaller companies, which will make it risky for these businesses to host online content.

Although it may seem that this British Parliament bill is not pertinent to the remainder of the world, it’s important to note that the Brookings Institution, a public policy organization in Washington D.C., applauds the steps that the Online Safety Bill takes to “protect” free speech by limiting certain types of free speech.

“This systems approach is a promising way to reduce noxious but legal online material while preserving free expression,” writes Mark MacCarthy, from the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings Institution.21 He goes on to write the bill “provide[s] guidance for policymakers struggling with similar regulatory challenges and opportunities in the United States.”

In other words, they believe that limiting what some people perceive as “lawful but harmful”22 speech may be just the ticket to protecting free speech. While British Parliament argues over the Online Safety Bill and U.S. politicians consider how to create one of their own, other public health officials have begun calling for censorship as early as March 2021, including:

  • Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, who pressed Facebook and Twitter to make their bans on Donald Trump permanent23
  • California U.S. House Democrats Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney, who went so far as to demand a dozen cable, satellite and streaming TV companies censor or remove entire news networks (Fox News, Newsmax and OANN)24
  • Pennsylvania Democratic Congressman Mike Doyle, who asked Facebook and Twitter to remove a dozen accounts, including mine, from their platforms during a House hearing on disinformation and extremism25
  • Delaware Democratic Sen. Chris Coons, who urged Twitter to expand its censorship categories to prevent the sharing of “climate denialism” views26

See how quickly things escalate? In less than a year, we went from massively censoring COVID-19 treatment information, the origin of the virus and COVID-19 vaccine information, to censoring election disputes and conservative news networks, to now calling for the censoring of climate information. And, believe me, it will not stop there. It’ll go on and on until all bases of human thought are covered.

CDC Admits the Vaccine Is Ineffective

The entire premise behind any mass vaccination campaign is to protect people and prevent unnecessary deaths. Yet, as has been demonstrated by multiple reports,27,28 online stories29 and data from the CDC and FDA,30 the vaccines have caused injuries and deaths that have been shrugged off.

It can only be assumed that public health officials believe these deaths are collateral damage in the name of the greater good. Otherwise, it appears that the U.S. government and public health researchers are not doing their homework, or worse, are intentionally encouraging the death and destruction of American lives.

In sticking with the technocratic narrative, Caitlin O’Kane, of CBS News, wrote: “Children’s Health Defense is a nonprofit known for being skeptical of vaccines, despite the fact that the vaccines available in the U.S. are safe and effective.”31 However, it appears the CDC doesn’t agree with her statement.

If you’ve been talking to friends, family and neighbors who have taken the shot, you likely have encountered at least one person who has been injured by it. Not only have reports demonstrated that the jab is ineffective,32 but it is also has some serious side effects33 — even before the shots were rolled out, the FDA was aware that they could cause myocarditis, autoimmune disease, stroke and death.34

On a related note, just two days after Meta’s actions against Children’s Health Defense, the CDC very quietly changed the COVID-19 guidelines August 19, 2022, saying, “CDC’s COVID-19 prevention recommendations no longer differentiate based on a person’s vaccination status because breakthrough infections occur, though they are generally mild, and persons who have had COVID-19 but are not vaccinated have some degree of protection against severe illness from their previous infection.”35

Defending First Amendment Rights Is Part of the Answer

Now that the CDC has all but acknowledged the shots don’t work and Walensky is spending more money restructuring an organization in which the public no longer holds any trust, you must ask — is anything going to change?

There are no easy answers to the current situation, but defending freedom of speech is part of the stand that each person must take. This includes defending the First Amendment rights of those with whom we disagree. Each of us needs to call our political representatives and take a firm stand against all censorship.

Until a safer and better alternative is available, consider ditching social media networks that erode your civil liberties and join those that promote freedom of speech. For example, free speech alternatives to Facebook and Twitter include Gab, MeWe, Gettr, Minds and Parler. Uncensored alternatives to YouTube include Bitchute, Rumble, Brighteon, Banned.video and Thinkspot.

For content creators and alternative news sources that no longer have a social media presence due to censoring, subscribe to their newsletter if available, and/or mark their website in your favorites and check back on a regular basis.

Our global society is facing a rapidly approaching dilemma. But if large-enough numbers of people everywhere stand up for freedom, we can still win. And, in the long term, that will protect and benefit everyone, everywhere.

Vaccine Vultures

ORIGINAL LINK

Guest Post by Todd Hayen

Vultures are birds that seek out wounded animals about to die and then swoop down on them when they are dead (or close to death) and devour them—apocryphally starting with gouging out the eyes.

Vultures are typically not classed in the “warm and fuzzy” anthropomorphic grouping, although they accomplish a great service to the ecology of the planet, such as other animals thrown in the “yuck” bucket of human perception such as flies, spiders, laughing hyenas, and carrion beetles (who knows what a carrion beetle is?—they ARE pretty, so before you know what they do for a living, you might like them).

So are we human vultures when we swoop down on dead or dying people we have heard about to see if they are vaxxed or not and if what they are suffering or dying from is due to the jab? Two? Three, god forbid four?

At the beginning of the vaccine madness, I was quite brazen and would unashamedly blurt out when hearing of someone’s misfortune, “were they vaccinated???!!!” I never got brazen enough to ask this to the person suffering (obviously if dead), but did to their friends, or whoever was explaining what was happening.

I eventually backed off of the personal incidents I was experiencing as it did seem a bit too vulture-like, but I still would ask sheep in my company what they thought of dozens of athletes dropping in the fields, now extended out to just average Joe’s not waking up or doctors way too young to be experiencing such severe cardiac issues.

Now I don’t even do that. I just listen.

It seems this particular vulture just enjoys the shock of seeing no one (sheep) realizing the secret. “You’ll see,” I say to myself, in my evil vulture voice. “You’ll see.”

Now, isn’t that sick? Maybe. But what else is this experience going to drive us to if not un-empathetic lunacy. Think of Lord of the Rings’ Gollum. Isn’t that what did him in?

We have been put into this untenable position of finding “joy” or at least “satisfaction” in the trauma of another. At its worse it is a form of schadenfreude, pleasure derived from another’s misfortune. But I would argue this is not really the case. I do not think what we are feeling (assuming others are fellow vaccine vultures) is “pleasure” and whatever it is that we are feeling is not due to someone else’s health misfortune.

Of course the definition does include “self satisfaction from another’s failures”—maybe that is the closest schadenfreude comes to defining vaccine vultures.

I recall a scene in the movie Fail Safe staring Henry Fonda, Larry Hagman, and Walter Matthau. Assuming most of you have seen this I will not elaborate: the scene I am speaking of takes place in the operation room where all the military men have been assigned the task of shooting down their own planes because they had been given false orders to nuke Moscow.

The US manages to shoot down one of the planes as the only way to avoid nuclear disaster. All in the ops room cheer. They are immediately told to pipe down, which they do realizing their “mistake.”

We certainly could be put into a similar position in our everyday lives where the only way to remedy a problem, a huge one, is for people to see for themselves the result of the problem (such as vaccine adverse effects) by suffering the problem directly. It is a cognitive dissonant moment for sure, but at least understandable if you are aware of the entire truth surrounding it.

Of course the vaccine “cheer” is not the same as the scene from Fail Safe. There is definitely no cheering, just a sick feeling of despair, but also the feeling of validation, which is the dicey part, “this is just what they have been saying would happen.”

That is clearly sobering, but also carries a tinge of hope. “Maybe this will be enough for everyone to know, and then to do something about it.” There ARE treatments to mitigate the pathology of the vaccines, but of course no one, or very few, are aware they need them.

I recently saw the Stew Peters show about Canadian doctors “dropping dead in droves” since doctors have been required to get the fourth booster in order to work (I believe this was in Canada’s Alberta, but I am sure it is happening in other places as well). Why is this not considered unconscionable to just ignore? “Well, a lot of other doctors who took the booster are fine, only 28 have suddenly died.” Two of them had cancer…does that take them out of the “vaccine caused” pool? I don’t think so.

There are many similar talk show presentations recently about such things, “Sudden Adult Death Syndrome,” doctors dying after the latest booster, cancers recurring with a vengeance after years of remission, children dying of myocarditis. These are just a few brought to my attention: here, here and here.

And it is not only in the alternative media. I hear these same stories from friends and colleagues. If they are sheep telling me, they are just shocked, but of course do not correlate it to the vaccine. If they are shrews they too are shocked, but not so much because of what is happening, but because no one else (sheep) seem to get it at all.

Just the other day I was driving to a restaurant with my wife and passed a house in the neighborhood with a police car in the driveway and a black coroner’s van pulling up to the house. My wife says, “Oh gosh, I guess someone has died. How sad.”

On the way home we saw in another part of the ‘hood an ambulance with the lights flashing in someone’s driveway. “Wow,” my wife says. “Wow, indeed,” I murmur—two wows for two different reasons. My wife just thinks it is a coincidence. I don’t, I actually don’t recall ever seeing anything like it before.

But is it a coincidence? Am I paranoid? Maybe. But my vulture alarm goes off and I start wishing I knew if either victim was vaccinated.

I have recently decided that the number one culprit for keeping sheep asleep is the media. The media has always played the role of the unbiased family member that will let you in on any corruption it saw in our leaders or other groups trying to get our attention. I think that is still true (that people rely on media for that reason) but the corruption is now in the media, at least the mainstream media.

We have been brainwashed to believe anything other than the New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, or other puppets of the system, is pure hogwash. It is now the other way around. I do believe that if any of these “gods of media” ran a story like we see day in and day out in the alternate media, many sheep heads would turn regardless what the venerated talking heads of government and power had to say.

All the rest of us are struggling and trying to make heads or tails out of all this. Thus the vultures come out not as carrion devourers but as inquisitive, and partially confused shrews trying to find validation in a sea of relentless lies. We don’t want our fellow humans to suffer and die, we just want everyone to see the truth the way we do.

Chicken Little didn’t want the sky to fall, she just wanted everyone to know it was falling so they could avoid the crushing, and destructive, results. Our Chicken Little story is different than the classic, because in our story the sky really is falling, and very few see that it is.

"Exorbitant Rise In Energy Prices" Forces Europe's Top Steelmaker To Close Plants

ORIGINAL LINK
"Exorbitant Rise In Energy Prices" Forces Europe's Top Steelmaker To Close Plants

Even though European power and natural gas prices have subsided this week, Germany, the largest economy in the bloc, still faces historically high energy costs that have forced cuts in industrial output. 

The latest example is the world's largest steelmaker, ArcelorMittal, which released a statement Friday about shutting down two plants and idling one. 

Europe's top steelmaker said two plants in Germany (one in Bremen and the other in Hamburg) would be partially closed at the end of September. A plant in Asturias, Spain, will also be idled. 

ArcelorMittal blamed the coming smelter shutdowns on "the exorbitant rise in energy prices," which is devastatingly impacting the company's "competitiveness of steel production." The decision to reduce metal output was also based on "weak market demand and a negative economic outlook" as energy hyperinflation risks sending Europe into a deep recession.  

"As an energy-intensive industry, we are extremely affected. With gas and electricity prices increasing tenfold within just a few months, we are no longer competitive in a market that is 25% supplied by imports," explained Reiner Blaschek, CEO of ArcelorMittal Germany. 

Blaschek asked lawmakers to address the historic energy crisis and get prices "under control immediately." Elevated prices this summer have resulted in a series of smelter closures from other metal-producing companies because high energy costs made production uneconomical. 

In Germany, one of every six industrial companies feels forced to reduce production due to high energy prices, a survey by the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce, DIHK, showed at the end of July. Nearly a quarter of the companies forced to reduce production had already done so by end-July, and another one-quarter are in the process of scaling back production due to sky-high energy prices, according to the survey of 3,500 companies from all sectors and regions in Germany.

The energy-intensive industries and firms are particularly hit, as 32 percent of the companies plan to or have already started to reduce production and even halt entire production lines, the DIHK survey showed. -- OilPrice.com's Tsvetana Paraskova 

Runaway energy costs were halted this week as German year-ahead electricity futures plunged by half since Monday's peak above 1,000 euros a megawatt-hour as the EU considers market interventions. EU NatGas prices closed down about 33% from the highs reached on Aug. 25. 

However, here's where things get very dicey. After European markets closed, around the lunch hour in New York, news broke that Russian energy giant Gazprom won't resume critical NatGas supplies to Europe via Nord Stream 1 tomorrow after an oil leak was detected. There's no timeframe when NatGas supply will resume to the energy-stricken continent. 

Europe's energy crisis could materially worsen, which means higher NatGas and power prices that will only curb more industrial output. Germany could fall into recession this winter, bringing the rest of the bloc down with it.

Tech platform Slack suspends WND with no explanation

ORIGINAL LINK

One day after WND got word that the blocking of its website by Google had been resolved, employees of the news site woke up to find they no longer could communicate through the company's Slack instant-messaging account.

There's been no response from Slack. The only communication is a web page stating, "This workspace has been suspended."

In June, a major non-profit that opposes illegal immigration had its Slack account canceled.

The group Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, was banned, according to a Slack spokesman, because it violated the tech company's policy forbidding incitement of hatred or violence and that the nonprofit is "affiliated with a known hate group."

"When we learn of an organization using Slack for illegal, harmful or other prohibited purposes, we conduct an investigation and take appropriate action in accordance with our policy," the spokesman told the Washington Free Beacon in June.

The Free Beacon reported, however, it could not identify any incidents in which FAIR  violated Slack's policy.

FAIR describes itself as a "non-partisan, public interest organization with a support base comprising nearly 50 private foundations and over 1.9 million diverse members and supporters."

Its objective is to "evaluates policies, seeking out solutions that help reduce the negative impact of uncontrolled immigration on the nation’s security, economy, workforce, education, healthcare and environment."

Fox News noted in a June report that Slack did not say how it determines whether or not an organization is a "hate group."

However, FAIR is listed by the notoriously biased, left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group, as is WND.

Fox News pointed out that critics have accused the SPLC of lumping together mainstream conservative groups with groups such as the Ku Klux Klan.

The SPLC – which regards as "hatred," for example, opposition to changing the definition of marriage and recognizing that terrorists who identify as Muslim base their violent actions on Islamic teaching – has faced multiple defamation lawsuits over its "hate" and "extremist" labeling.

In 2018, as WND reported, even a Washington Post Magazine reporter commissioned to produce an in-depth feature on the SPLC came away with at least some doubt about the organization's credibility as a judge of "hate."

IMPORTANT NOTE: How is it possible that the greatest and freest nation in world history has so rapidly come under the control of serially lying, deranged, power-mad sociopaths – leaders with nothing but contempt for America, for its history, its Constitution, its Judeo-Christian culture and its people? Orwell’s “1984” points directly to the answer: The elites are changing America’s language itself, so that people’s words – and therefore, their very thoughts – inevitably come under the control of the ruling class. It’s a way of bending reality in real time, so that what is illusion appears to be true, while what is real and true appears to be lies, misinformation, “hate speech,” “conspiracy theories” and “extremism.” This extraordinarily powerful but little-understood weapon of war employed 24/7 by the Marxist left is completely explained, exposed and exploded in the August issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower agazine, NEWSPEAK 2022: How tyrants and lunatics are enslaving Americans by redefining everything.

Crushed Scores And Crushed Skulls: Children Pay Grim Lockdown Price

ORIGINAL LINK
Crushed Scores And Crushed Skulls: Children Pay Grim Lockdown Price

The disturbing evidence against lockdowns piled even higher this week, with new studies on two continents showing that children not only suffered significant learning loss but sharply higher abuse at home too.  

First, French researchers found abusive head trauma among infants in the Paris metro area doubled during the second year of the pandemic, reports MedPage Today. Worse yet, mortality rates among those abused infants soared nearly 10-fold, suggesting greater ferocity.   

Interestingly, the stats held steady through the first year of the pandemic and its associated government lockdowns, only to erupt in 2021. The researchers hypothesize that the pattern reflects an "accumulation of psychosocial distress over time."

They attribute that distress to lockdown measures that "deteriorated the psychosocial situation of adults, increased the periods where parents or guardians were at home for a prolonged time with their children, and reduced the intensity of prevention and early detection programs."

Like other victims of maniacal Covidian coercion, Parisians were subjected to lengthy lockdowns, curfews and daycare closures, as public health officials gave no consideration to collateral effects of their policies. 

"Economic loss and unemployment, mental disorders such as acute and post-traumatic stress disorders and depression or suicidal behaviors are known risk factors for [child abuse and neglect]," the Université Paris Cité researchers wrote. 

Meanwhile, a new federal study found that both math and reading scores for 9-year-old Americans tumbled during the pandemic's first two years.  

"Reading scores saw their largest decrease in 30 years, while math scores had their first decrease in the history of the testing regimen behind the study," reported the Associated Press

“I was taken aback by the scope and the magnitude of the decline,” Peggy G. Carr, commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics, told The New York Times

Shutdown-happy public health officials and teachers unions tag-teamed to pummel black and brown kids hardest. White students' math scores dropped 5 percentage points, but black scores tumbled 13 points and Hispanics shed 8 points. Asian and native American scores managed to hold steady. 

The children damned by overreaching public health officials may never reach their pre-pandemic potential. "Student test scores, even starting in first, second and third grade, are really quite predictive of their success later in school, and their educational trajectories overall,” said Susanna Loeb, Brown University's director of the Annenberg Institute. 

Asked on Thursday about the steep toll that school shutdowns took on children, barrier-breaking White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre showed that black lesbians are fully capable of the mind-boggling dishonesty that's required when serving as the Biden administration's script-reading, identity-politics hood ornament.

Pretending that Democrats, teachers unions and liberal media weren't the leading proponents of school closures, Jean-Pierre implied those closures were a product of pandemic mismanagement on the part of  Donald Trump and the Republican Party: 

Jean-Pierre blames Trump for schools being closed during Covid and says schools re-opening “was the work of Democrats in spite of Republicans” pic.twitter.com/X9kQjlzvHY

— Washington Free Beacon (@FreeBeacon) September 1, 2022

Sadly, if our society can't unite in acknowledging the intrinsic dangers of lockdowns, we're at risk of being victimized by them again, with the ill effects falling heaviest on those with the smallest voices.

"Worst Has Yet To Come": Civil Unrest Set To Surge Worldwide As Socioeconomic Pressure Builds, Report Warns

"Worst Has Yet To Come": Civil Unrest Set To Surge Worldwide As Socioeconomic Pressure Builds, Report Warns

Soaring food, energy, and shelter inflation have led to what could be a new era of civil unrest worldwide. Pockets of unrest have been observed in Sri Lanka, Peru, Kenya, Ecuador, Iran, and Europe. New research forecasts a broader wave of discontent is just ahead. 

While this topic of developing social unrest is hardly new, we discussed it in late 2020, "Why Albert Edwards Is Starting To Panic About Soaring Food Prices," and Rabobank's Michael Every noted in April 2021: "We Are Edging Closer To A Biblical Commodity Price Increase Scenario." 

Earlier this year, Rockefeller Foundation President Rajiv warned that a "massive, immediate food crisis" is nearing. The UN said this summer that the world is "marching towards starvation" with an increased likelihood of civil unrest and political violence. 

Making sense of the impending global turmoil is Verisk Maplecroft, a UK-based risk consulting and intelligence firm. They have just published an updated version of the Civil Unrest Index (CUI), covering seven years of data, showing the last quarter saw the most countries ever since the index was created move higher in civil unrest risks (101 of the 198 countries tracked by the firm saw increased risks of civil unrest, while only 42 experienced reduced risks).

"The impact is evident across the globe, with popular discontent over rising living costs emerging on the streets of developed and emerging markets alike, stretching from the EU, Sri Lanka, Peru to Kenya, Ecuador, and Iran, " Verisk wrote in the report, adding conditions are worsening as the frequency of protests and labor strikes could accelerate into fall. 

"Although there have been several high-profile and large-scale protests during the first half of 2022, the worst is undoubtedly yet to come," the firm warned.

Verisk noted Algeria has the highest likelihood of projected civil unrest over the next half year because of rising inflation. Other areas include Europe, mainly due to energy hyperinflation decimating household finances.

"Bosnia and Herzegovina, Switzerland, Netherlands, Germany, and Ukraine are all among the states with the biggest projected increases in risk," the report said. 

"Only a significant reduction in global food and energy prices can arrest the negative global trend in civil unrest risk. Recession fears are mounting, and inflation is expected to be worse in 2023 than in 2022," Verisk said.

The question remains if central banks can arrest inflation with the most aggressive interest rate hikes in decades. If not, then Verisk expects: "the next six months are likely to be even more disruptive" than earlier this year.

Window Of Opportunity To Get Prepared Before The Catastrophic Events Of 2023 Is Rapidly Closing

ORIGINAL LINK

prepping-101-kellene-590x331.jpg

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

I don’t know how I could say it any more clearly.  At this moment, the vast majority of the population is completely and utterly unprepared for what is ahead of us.

Every day, there are more signs in the news that global events are starting to spiral out of control, but instead of using this summer to get prepared much of the population is partying instead.  This greatly frustrates me, because I have been working extremely hard to try to sound the alarm.  People should be using the window of opportunity that we have this summer to take action because the months ahead of us will be filled with famine, war, pestilence, natural disasters, and severe economic troubles.  Summer officially ends in late September, and I believe that global events will accelerate greatly throughout the remainder of 2022 and into the early stages of 2023.

Most people always think that they have more time to prepare.

But as the people of Mississippi’s largest city recently found out, the opportunity to get prepared can end very abruptly

Mississippi’s largest city has run out of water indefinitely, leaving 180,000 locals unable to drink from their taps, flush toilets, or shower.

The ailing OB Curtis water plant in Jackson was taken offline after it was overwhelmed by recent flooding, which destroyed backup systems put in place to relieve the elderly plant’s main treatment machinery.

Now, the capital city that is home to 150,000 people and 30,000 surrounding communities are pressed to conserve their rations as officials begin to distribute cases of water bottles in a ‘massively complicated logistical task.’

We are being told that it could take up to four months to completely repair the water plant.

So what will all those people do as they wait?

It is being reported that one prominent restaurant in Jackson is now being forced to spend 800 dollars a day on bottled water…

Restaurants in Mississippi’s largest city are being driven into the ground by a water shortage that’s forcing them to spend up to $800-a-day on bottled water.

Nick Wallace, a chef at Nissan Cafe at the Two Museums complex in Jackson:’I am spending $800 a day on cokes and waters and getting no help from Jackson.’

Meanwhile, another Jackson restaurant called Walker’s Dine-in has been forced to shell out $300-a-day on water.

This is yet another example that shows why having a plan for water should be absolutely central to your prepping plan.

Someday soon the water may stop coming out of your taps.

If that happens, what will you do?

And when a major disaster suddenly strikes, disease can often spread like wildfire.

Right now, approximately a third of Pakistan is covered by water, and doctors find themselves completely overwhelmed by the number of people that are suddenly ill…

Officials in Pakistan raised concern Wednesday over the spread of waterborne diseases among thousands of flood victims, as waters from powerful monsoon rains began to recede in many parts of the country.

Some doctors said initially they were seeing mostly patients traumatized by the flooding, but are now treating people suffering from diarrhea, skin infections and other waterborne ailments in the country’s flood-hit areas. Many pregnant women living in flood-affected areas were also exposed to risks.

And all of the flooding has instantly created extremely serious food shortages in much of the country…

Vegetable and fruit prices have soared in markets across Pakistan as devastating rains ruin crops and disrupt supplies, an early sign of how the worst floods in decades are creating food shortages at a time of financial crisis.

Pakistan’s 220 million people are already facing rampant inflation, with consumer prices up 24.9 per cent year-on-year in July. The economy is in turmoil, with fast-depleting foreign reserves and a record depreciation of the rupee against the U.S. dollar.

In the eastern city of Lahore, close to the border with India and far from the worst floods in Sindh, prices of some vegetables have tripled.

Tonight, there will be countless men, women, and children in Pakistan that will go to bed hungry.

How would you and your family fare if a similar disaster suddenly struck where you live?

Most Americans don’t realize that food supplies are also getting tighter here in the United States.

The food that isn’t being grown in 2022 will not be on our store shelves in 2023.  In fact, we are being warned that we could be facing a very serious shortage of tomatoes in the months ahead…

California’s farmers grow nearly all of America’s processing tomatoes, but this year is shaping up to be another poor harvest season. This means products like ketchup, salsa, and pasta sauce could soon be in short supply in stores across the county.

Drought, inflation, and supply chain issues are to blame for this possible shortage, according to California Tomato Growers Association President Mike Montna.

But Joe Biden says that everything is going to be just fine.

You believe him, don’t you?

Before I end this article, I want to talk about energy.

I have always urged my readers to do whatever they could to become more independent from the power grid.

We are in the early stages of the worst global energy crisis in any of our lifetimes, and energy bills are soaring into the stratosphere all over the planet.

For example, just consider what is happening in Ireland

Over the past week, shocked Europeans – mostly in the UK and Ireland – have been posting viral photos of shockingly high energy bills amid the ongoing (and worsening) energy crisis.

Several of the posts were from small business owners who getting absolutely crushed right now, and won’t be able to remain operational much longer.

One such owner is Geraldine Dolan, who owns the Poppyfields cafe in Athlone, Ireland – and was charged nearly €10,000 (US$10,021) for just over two months of energy usage.

As the Irish Times reports, “The cost of electricity to the Poppyfields cafe for 73 days from early June until the end of August came in at €9,024.70 an increase of 250 per cent in just 12 months. There doesn’t include the €812.22 in VAT, which brought her total bill to €9,836.92.”

Sadly, this is just the beginning.

As energy supplies get even tighter, energy bills are only going to go higher.

In Germany, some manufacturers have already chosen to halt production because of absurdly high energy bills…

As the FT reportsGerman manufacturers are halting production in response to the surge in energy prices, a trend the government has described as “alarming”. German economy minister Robert Habeck said industry had worked hard to reduce its gas consumption in recent months, partly by switching to alternative fuels like oil, making its processes more efficient and reducing output. But he amusingly clarified, some companies had also “stopped production altogether” — a development he said was “alarming”.

“It’s not good news,” he said, “because it can mean that the industries in question aren’t just being restructured but are experiencing a rupture — a structural rupture, one that is happening under enormous pressure.”

This is not just a temporary problem.

As I explained a few days ago, the prime minister of Belgium says that Europeans will be dealing with this energy crisis for the next five to ten years.

Ouch.

Here in the United States, residents of California are being warned that there could actually be widespread blackouts this week right in the middle of a historic heatwave

Much of Southern California remains under an excessive heat warning, with the state’s grid operator warning that the high temperatures could lead to blackouts.

The state is facing a prolonged late-summer heat wave, with temperatures expected to reach as high as 115 degrees Fahrenheit in some parts, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

This is yet another example that shows why you should not totally rely on our aging power grids.

In a desperate attempt to conserve energy, California residents are being asked to set their thermostats at 78 degrees or higher

“If weather or grid conditions worsen, the ISO may issue a series of emergency notifications to access additional resources and prepare market participants and the public for potential energy shortages and the need to conserve,” CAISO officials warned Tuesday night. “The power grid operator expects to call on Californians for voluntary energy conservation via Flex Alerts over the long weekend.”

This could include asking residents to set thermostats to 78 degrees or higher, avoid large appliance use and EV charging, and turn off unnecessary lights between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m, when the grid is the most stressed.

Whatever you can do to become more independent of the system is good, because the system is failing.

And all of the examples that I have shared in this article are relatively minor compared to the cataclysmic disasters that we will eventually see.

So please, get prepared while you still can.

This summer will soon be over, and 2023 will be here before you know it.

JUST IN: CDC Panel Votes in Favor of Recommending New Covid Booster Shots That Have Never Been Tested on Humans

ORIGINAL LINK

A CDC panel on Thursday voted in favor of approving the latest Covid booster shot that hasn’t even been tested on humans.

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky still has to give the final approval.

The latest Covid booster was supposedly reformulated to ‘protect’ against Omicron subvariants.

The new COVID boosters were not tested on humans – only mice.

The boosters got emergency authorization this week and a CDC panel on Thursday voted to recommend the shots for people over the age of 12.

ABC News reported:

An independent panel of advisors for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention voted in favor of rolling out the newly-updated COVID-19 booster shots, paving the way for CDC Director Rochelle Walensky to give the final sign-off on the boosters sometime Thursday evening or Friday and for shots to be administered soon after.

The new booster shots have been updated to target two different COVID strains in one shot — the current omicron subvariants, BA.4 and BA.5, which make up 99% of new cases in the U.S., and the original strain of COVID-19.

This is the first time current COVID-19 vaccines have had a major upgrade. In the future, experts expect the vaccines could be updated periodically to match current strains — akin to the way the flu shot is slightly different each year.

Public health officials directed the vaccine companies to create a bivalent vaccine — a vaccine that targets two different strains — in the hopes that the compilation will provide broader protection against COVID this fall and winter, as infections could rise with flu season, the cold weather and more time indoors.

The Pfizer bivalent booster will be available to everyone over 12, while the Moderna bivalent booster will be available to everyone over 18.

Blogger won't publish: "Studies show that COVID vaccines cause massive blood damage"

Here’s how the vaccine is causing those weird “blood clots”

ORIGINAL LINK

Guest Post by Steve Kirsch

I had a nice chat with Jessica Rose today on her Substack article about how the vaccine is causing your blood to perform unnatural acts.

Recently, Jessica Rose published a very long, but very important Substack article, “Is the spike protein acting as a prion with regard to hemoglobin molecules? And is porphyria being induced?

The short answer is yes, it appears so, according to everything we know.

Here’s a key paragraph from that article:

So the bottom line of all of this information is this: the virus infects the RBCs using spike protein via the CD147 receptor on red blood cells which causes hemolysis (rupture of the red blood cell). This causes the release of massive amounts of hemoglobin. Then the spike protein, due to its amyloidogenic peptides, triggers mis-folding of the hemoglobin into amyloid fibrils causing subsequent blood clots. The blood clots would be enhanced due to antibodies (Ag:Ab complexes).

These “rubbery” blood clots that are being pulled out of cadavers on a regular basis.

Watch this short video of John O’Looney explaining how these clots cause people to die.

What is remarkable is the medical examiner is completely missing this in their determination of the cause of death (which they leave unexplained). The embalmers find these clots. Most of them say nothing because they don’t want to lose business.

The “clots” featured in these videos are not blood at all; they are primarily amyloid proteins (thanks to analysis done by Mike Adams of clots supplied by Richard Hirschman).

The virus itself can cause this to happen, but to a much much smaller extent than the vaccine (think miniscule). The vaccine has an advantage over the virus because, unlike the virus, it deposits the spike protein all over your body very quickly after injection thanks to the polyethylene glycol which coats the lipid nanoparticles.

So if you are wondering why you just lost someone to a stroke or heart attack after their latest jab, now you know. If they died shortly after the vaccine, it was probably the vaccine that created a clot that blocked blood flow to the brain or heart.

Why isn’t the NIH funding a study looking at blood parameters before/after vaccination?

It’s very telling that there isn’t a single published study anywhere in the world that looks at d-dimer, troponin, and Heinz bodies both before and after vaccination.

There’s a reason for that:

They don’t want to know. It would immediately end the vaccine program worldwide.

However, if anyone reading this is interested in doing such a study, I’ll happily fund it in a heartbeat. Use the Contact me form and be sure to check the study with the d-dimer radio button.

The Great Deception

ORIGINAL LINK

Magic hat and money bag - The Great Deception - Miller on the MoneyThe Fed’s “magic money” game is about over! They try to fool the public into thinking they are sitting in a giant control center, making decisions, punching their keyboards, and controlling the economy. Happy days are here again, today, tomorrow and forever. Not to worry, the Feds got you covered. Cut the crap!

The Chicago Fed outlines their dual mandate, and what the Fed is supposed to be doing:

“The monetary policy goals of the Federal Reserve are to foster economic conditions that achieve both stable prices and maximum sustainable employment.”

Dual mandate deception

“The Federal Reserve is a cartel- it’s a banking cartel. And like all cartels, it only has one purpose – and that is to serve the benefit of the members of the cartel, period.”

— G. Edward Griffin

Since the repeal of the Glass-Steagall act, the Fed has clearly revealed their true agenda – contrary to what is published. The Federal Reserve is owned by member (casino)banks, with their major source of income from investments. Their behavior has been to bail out the banking system, while fostering bank profits. The banks are a cartel, keeping their profits while taxpayers backstop their losses.

Congress ignores their job of overseeing the Fed.

Why? The Fed allows congress to spend trillions without raising taxes to cover the excessive spending. That buys votes. The Fed creates money out of thin air and holds trillions of government debt on their books.

The consequences of bank bailouts and corrupt politicians are coming home to roost, and it’s not pretty.

The dual mandate is window dressing and contradictory. For the Fed to promote full employment, they have one tool; make the cost of money cheap to encourage borrowing, spending and hopefully economic growth. Flooding the system with money causes inflation.

Pundit Bill Bonner reports:

“In a healthy economy, people barely notice the Fed. Its manipulations are slight. Its errors are small. It stays out of the way.

That’s the way it was until the 1990s, when Alan Greenspan began backstopping Wall Street. Later, after the mortgage crisis of 2008, the Fed intervened on a scale never before seen in the US. Interest rates were pushed down to near-zero…and left there for more than 10 years. In a single month in 2020, the Fed added more new money than had been ‘printed’ in the preceding 100 years. And now, the whole economy has an almost insatiable appetite for more credit from the Fed.

It’s a monster. Either inflate it. Or kill it.”

Inflation is killing the consumer. The Fed is raising rates trying to calm inflation. Despite government claims, they have a long way to go. If they continue increasing interest rates it will do the trick; at the expense of slowing the economy, costing people jobs, etc.

When the July inflation numbers were announced, President Biden proclaimed:

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today, we received news that our economy had zero percent inflation in the month of July – zero percent! Here’s what that means: while the price of some things go up – went up last month, the price of other things went down by the same amount. The result? Zero inflation last month.”

The Epoch Times reports:

Grocery Inflation Hits Highest Level in 43 Years Despite Biden’s ‘Zero’ Inflation Messaging.

While the annual pace of inflation in the United States eased slightly in July, a deeper dive into the numbers reveals that some of the categories that hit every day Americans especially hard in the pocketbook have soared, with the price of groceries jumping to the highest level since 1979.

…. The food-at-home index, which represents food purchased in places like grocery stores for consumption at home, jumped by an annual 13.1 percent, which is the fastest pace since March 1979.

‘Consumers are getting a break at the gas pump, but not at the grocery store,’ Bankrate Chief Financial Analyst Greg McBride told The Epoch Times in an emailed statement. ‘Food prices, and especially costs for food at home, continue to soar, rising at the fastest pace in more than 43 years.'”

Politicians never change

As always, the political class attempts to mislead the public:

“Republicans and some economists objected to the White House messaging on “zero” inflation by arguing that Biden was cherry picking the data by focusing on the 0 percent month-over-month pace of growth, while overlooking that the year-over-year rate of inflation-which tends to be the more commonly reported figure-remained at an eye-watering 8.5 percent.

It’s a bogus math trick.”

I have real disdain for both political parties. Please save the hate mail. If Republicans were in power, they would be hailing victory while the democrats cry foul – that’s what politicians do.

Don’t get caught up in the “zero” inflation crap. If you have $1 million, and inflation is 8.5%, you lose $85,000 in buying power in a year. That averages $7,083.33 per month. The government touts “zero” inflation month over month and we should rejoice? We should rejoice because government-caused inflation only robbed us at the same rate they did last month?

The Fed’s dilemma

Bill Bonner explains things:

“This puts the Fed in a tight spot. It’s ‘inflate or die.’

It can’t ‘inflate’ because it would risk runaway inflation. (Gasoline, for example. Even after the price decline of the last month, it is still 50% higher than it was last year. Producer prices “in the pipeline” are still going up at nearly 10% per year.)

balloon printed with a hundred dollar bill about to be popped by a hand holding a hat pinSince it can’t inflate, the bubble must die. And the Fed is puncturing it, with tiny daggers…50-75 basis points each. The Fed Funds rate is still about 600 basis points (6%) below the CPI (now 8.5%). It needs to get ahead of inflation…not tarry 600 basis points behind. Otherwise, it has no rates to cut in the face of a recession.

And if it stops raising rates, or even reverses course as the recession deepens, consumer prices will go up…and the whole system risks going into an Argentine-like chaos.”

What is “Argentine-like chaos?” Reuters tells us:

“BUENOS AIRES, Aug 11 (Reuters) – Argentina’s central bank raised its benchmark interest rate by 950 basis points on Thursday as the country struggles to keep a lid on spiraling inflation that rose to a 20-year high of 71%, according to new data.

The central bank raised the benchmark ‘Leliq’ rate for the 28-day term to 69.5% from 60%, a rate the bank set just two weeks ago when it hiked the rate by 800 basis points and the government shuffled its Cabinet to install a new economy “superminister.”

Don’t you just love politicians? Adding a “superminister” to the cabinet is like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. Cutting government spending and reigning in the banks would be a more appropriate place to start.

“All depressions are caused by government interference and the cure is always offered to take more of the poison that caused the disaster. Depressions are not the result of a free economy.”

— Ayn Rand

The Fed’s problem is OUR problem

So, the government and Fed will now solve the huge problem they created? Show me!

The Federal Reserve must raise interest rates higher than the inflation rate. Congress must reinstate the Glass-Steagall, balance the budget, institute congressional term limits, and abolish the Fed. Not happening yet….

Instead of any reasonable effort to reduce the annual budget deficits, congress passed a $745 billion “inflation reduction act”. It is the exact opposite of the title. The bill is full of pork, political payoffs, more wasteful spending, adding to the deficit and increasing inflation.

Things were economically painful when Paul Volcker raised interest rates as high as 20%. In a few short years inflation was under control and the economy turned around.

Don’t be deceived

Friend Chuck Butler recently warned:

“You can have what’s called a “Bear Market Rally,” a slight upswing before it continues down. Historically most all Bear Markets had a “Bear Market Rally.”

Here is what a “Bear Market Rally” looks like. This chart tracks the Dow Jones averages from 1928-1956.

FRED Dow Jones Industrial Stock Price IndexIn 1929, the market peaked around $360, then dropped to around $228. Then it jumped 22% to $278. Happy Days were NOT here again. Over the next two years, it dropped to $48 – a 65% drop. It took 25 years to return to the previous high.

Chuck and I fear the Fed will eventually cave to political pressure and reverse the process, creating more inflation.

Economist John Mauldin predicts:

“Fed officials know they can’t let inflation get out of control. But they also want to see a “soft landing” for the economy. I see high risk, they will take some kind of “pause” in the rate hikes later this year. They’ll say they want to reevaluate data, blah, blah, blah.

…. The government and the Federal Reserve’s policy errors created the current situation. I see many more opportunities for policy error in the future, with potential results ranging from bad to calamitous.

But these things unfold slowly. We could easily get a few good months that lull everyone to sleep. If so, we may wake up to a nightmare.”

I’m sure traders really got hurt during the Great Depression, trying to time the market and jumping back in during the Bear Market Rally.

When the Fed takes a pause, many will assume things are fixed. Don’t get fooled. Waiting things out may cost a few dollars, but jumping back in too early, could be a real calamity.

Keep your stop losses up to date, your emotions in check and your expenses under control. We will survive!

Documents leaked from the EMA confirms why we aren’t allowed to analyze the vaccine vials

ORIGINAL LINK

Guest Post by Steve Kirsch

It’s like rolling the dice for what you get in your vial. Both the FDA and EMA knew this but kept this out of the public view because if it were known, nobody would take the vaccines.

One of my readers has been trying to get my attention for 8 months on the EMA data leak that happened nearly 2 years ago.

He recently posted this substack article documenting his attempts to get visibility on what the EMA document leak revealed.

The gem in the article is this video which was posted 18 months ago that few people have seen. The video is just 14 minutes long and is very well done. The findings are all consistent with what I and others have long suspected: the vials are all different.

The key finding is the reason they won’t let anyone analyze the vials: mRNA is not intact. The BMJ wrote about this on March 10, 2021 [my comments are in brackets]:

  1. On Nov 23, 2020, EMA knew about the quality control issues with severely compromised mRNA integrity (ranging from 78% to 55%). [It’s supposed to be 100% if you want an effective vaccine.]
  2. Just two days later, a source in the US said the lots were now “back at around 70-75%, which leaves us cautiously optimistic that additional data could address the issue.”
  3. “The complete, intact mRNA molecule is essential to its potency as a vaccine,” professor of biopharmaceutics Daan J.A. Crommelin and colleagues wrote in a review article in The Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences late last year.”
  4. The BMJ asked Pfizer, Moderna, and CureVac, as well as several regulators, what percentage mRNA integrity they consider acceptable for vaccines against covid-19. None offered any specifics. [“Wow, that’s really comforting. <sarcasm off>”]
  5. The EMA told The BMJ that the levels of truncated mRNA “and the amounts of a potential protein produced by the truncated mRNA would be too low to constitute a safety risk.” [uh… how does the EMA know that exactly?]
  6. Health Canada told The BMJ that Pfizer had conducted investigations into the root cause of reduced integrity in the commercial vaccine batches, and “changes were made in their processes to ensure that the integrity was improved and brought in line with what was seen for clinical trial batches.” Health Canada said the three agencies subsequently determined that “there was no concern with the RNA integrity or any other product specifications.” [Whew! Now I’m relieved! No data on the new levels produced. If you can’t trust Pfizer, who can you trust?]

In general, the BMJ wasn’t happy about anything they heard from the regulators. They were basically stonewalled in their requests.

The fact that it’s illegal for anyone to analyze the vials (they are government property) doesn’t help inspire confidence at all.

Even if you are getting 100% intact mRNA which would be really rare, you’re still not getting anything that resembles the virus. So the efficacy as far as PROTECTING you will be next to nothing. However, what it will do very effectively, if you got reasonably intact mRNA, is to cause you significant harm. You are playing a game of chance with your immune system and what is in the bottle.

The video highlights some of the things we learned from the EMA data breach:

  1. The EMA claims the documents were manipulated to make them look bad, but won’t say how they were manipulated. I’m not buying the EMA story at all.
  2. The Members of the European Parliament (MEP) weren’t allowed to read the contracts with the vaccine makers (only heavily redacted versions). Again, if you can’t trust Pfizer and the EMA, who can you trust?
  3. The mRNA is unstable, even at the required temperatures because light, movement (like shipping it to a destination), and any temperature variation disrupts it.
  4. Unstable mRNA means the spike protein (which was artificially propped up) could collapse making the whole process useless to support immunity, but still dangerous in terms of damage to cells. So you get all the risk and no benefit.
  5. The mRNA integrity was better in the clinical trial than commercial batches. But don’t assume that the vaccine worked in the trials since the trials were heavily gamed to produce favorable outcomes, mostly by excluding people with weak immune systems from the vaccine group (this is why there were 5X the number of exclusions in the vax group). So you’re looking at a vaccine which likely does absolutely nothing except make people believe they are protected. This mind control works quite well. People bought the story for over a year before they realized they were getting infected at the same rate as people who didn’t get the vaccine.
  6. The mRNA integrity varied between countries.
  7. Pfizer never told anyone that the commercial vaccines had lower mRNA integrity than the vaccines used in the trials. This is unethical, bordering on fraud.
  8. The EMA tried to cover it up. Instead of protecting the public and making Pfizer look bad, the EMA basically covered up the problem.
  9. Pfizer never told the public or governments about the risks associated with mRNA integrity. If it wasn’t for the leak, we’d never have known. But it’s all OK because the drug companies are exempt from any liability. The patient takes all the risk here, not the drug companies.
  10. EMA was concerned about visible particles in the vials. The BMJ never investigated that. Is it still a problem? I don’t think anyone cares to know the answer to that.
  11. The deaths in the trials are all dismissed as “unrelated to the vaccine” without doing the proper analysis.
  12. There should be an investigation into these issues, but the governments are not going to expose their own fraud since it would be too embarrassing so nothing will happen.

Summary

This video summarizing the leaked EMA documents constitutes yet more evidence that the vaccines confer no benefits, only risk.

However, like everything else, it will be ignored by the authorities.

However, this is important information for the public to know about how they are being manipulated into taking a useless vaccine.

NOBODY is calling for any quality control here.

Have you ever seen a study where the authors collect vials randomly and sequence them? It’s not going to happen. Not in my lifetime.
