W.O.O.D. – 1 October 2021


This is another of the W.O.O.D. series of semi-regular
Weekly Occasional Open Discussions.
(i.e. if I forget and skip one, no big)

Immediate prior one here:

and remains open for threads running there (at least until the ‘several month’ auto-close of comments on stale threads).

Canonical list of old ones here:


The Weekly Memes

I really really like these guy’s “top 10 memes”. They watch what is going on on Gab and Patriot.win and select the ones that they like best. A nice filtering service if nothing else; but the way they match music to the theme is also good. Unfortunately, can’t do an embed that works with my free WordPress plan (it does do free EwTube embeds… but only them) so you get to “hit the link”.

This is the one from Sept 11, I’ll catch up the others later:


As before, do be prepared to hit pause to pick up the details.

10: How the numbers show the vexxine is a fraud and failure. I especially like the pronouns (spoiler: was/were)…

9: Faux-Xi lies to congress about not lying to congress who are expert liars themselves.

8: New Rules! Over 100 employees? Mandatory Nuremberg Medical experiments for you. Federal Overlords vs States Citizens…

7: An absolutely stellar idea. Print up signs saying you do not discriminate based on Vexxine Status and put them in stores for free.

6: Biden frustrated at “80 million” Americans practicing Free Will. Um, and a “Single Finger POTUS Salute” warning…

5: A lesson in Ethics (that I’ve seen elsewhere). This is just the lead-in part of it, then a comment.

4: “Domestic Violent Extremists”… Uh, right.. A little different now than on 9/11. I must admit, the blatant fraud of Covid-19 / Vexxination et. al. has shown how corrupt and immoral Global Leadership is. As a result, I am now willing to entertain the notion that 9/11 was a product of them and GEB Governance and did not involve any of the countries we destroyed afterwards. False Flag is now an option. I dismissed it prior.

3: 9/11 First Responders – Trump vs The Cabal…

2: Trump on 9/11. Plus some digs on Afghanistan.

1: The Vexxine War is upon us, ready or not, willing or not. Love the Piggy Meme and the NPC… Then the Vexxinated Authoritarians saying they are “coming for you” is a bit much. Hopefully I’m in a Constitutional Carry State before that starts…

“Stuff” Happens

Bits N Pieces

None this time, I’m “way behind” on must do’s, so it’s a “Go Fish” news day…

I’ve also gotten addicted to the Top Ten Memes of the week from WatchMAGA here:


They have interesting “bite” to them, along with a tendency to highlight the news of the week in memes, so good as a social attitude pointer too. Plus they are “way fun” ;-)

    Another video worth watching in case you have friends who think that all medical personnel are in favor of the vaxx. This is a town hall type gathering of unvaxxed health care professionals.
    More reports that
    1) asymptomatic COVID positive plus broken leg = “COVID hospitalization”
    2) Nurses told do NOT keep track of vaxxed COVID cases
    3) VAERS reporting legally required for health care professionals but instead is actively discouraged
    4) unvaxxed patients viewed as unworthy of care
    5) Nurses questioning mandatory vaxxes being insulted and threatened
    6) Side effects very common, including clots, heart attacks, amputations, etc.
    7) effective treatments discouraged
    and more.

    They are planning on milking this “Pandemic” for everything that they can and say that this constant scheduled of treatments will be the new normal going forward for everyone.
    Counting their chickens a bit early I think. The revolt has begun.

    “You CAN’T Use ‘Cases’”

    “Do remember the admitted truth on PCR: A Ct test of 35 or more almost never results in culturable virus.

    It breaks down something like this:

    Ct<20 = Nearly always you can culture virus.
    Ct25 = 50 – 70% of the time you can culture virus.
    Ct30 = ~25-30% of the time you can culture virus.
    Ct35 = ~4-8% of the time you can culture virus.
    Ct40 = Statistically never can you culture virus."

    That is mostly correct, but it was a little more complex than that. The peasants were taught by the government to override their common sense about agriculture. So, at random times different villages would get freakishly good harvests and because it seemed to result from Lysenko’s methods, they would report those successes to Pravda (of course they would not publish disappointing harvests). So, what was produced as an automated “cherry picking” reporting mechanism, and eventually there were hundreds of reports in the Soviet media that backed up Lysenko. Lysenko rarely published in scientific journals but rebutted his opponents that did with the massive trove of Pravda articles that showed the “practical results” of his methods. Thus, the peasants unwittingly participated in this through the Soviet media and it looked like they were on Lysenko’s side. And the real irony was that the government was buying wheat from the United States and desperately wanted to increase its harvests. (wtf?)

    I just bring this up because it is similar to what is happening now with Climate Change, where every unusual weather occurrence, that validates the theory, gets reported as “proof” of the theory. And weather occurrences that don’t, don’t get reported. This is illustrative of how pernicious something like this can become, as even well meaning people get sucked in, along the lines of: “if you are trained to find something, you will find it.” And now this is happening in other branches of Western science that are fast becoming “narrative based”…

    Sorry about the “nit-picking” but I just thought I would expand on your comment. Lysenkoism seems so absurd on its face, but how it was implemented and how it resulted in the starvation of millions is quite complex. Once the idea “took hold”, it became a self sustaining cyclone, that was almost impossible to get out of.

    An amazing story. IMHO

  8. The True Nolan says:

    We may actually have a good study of Medicare data on COVID cases vs vaxx status.
    If this study stands, it looks like (as has been discussed) that the vaxx lowers initial chance of hospitalization but then wanes in effectiveness. As of August 7, the vaxxed Medicare folks (80%) were accounting for 60% of the hospitalizations. As of August 21, it was up to 71%. If it continues that trend, by now, the vaxx recipients may have worse stats than the unvaxxed PLUS (of course) they have the risks of side effects. Hopefully this study will be updated as the pertinent data continues to come in.

    (In light of the various nurses saying that they have been told to NOT collect info on vaxx status of COVID cases, I wonder whether this study has correct numbers.)

  9. cdquarles says:

    Few things disgust me more, right now, that hearing reports of medical personnel (mainly nurses since paperwork is a lot of their time) being told to *not* report adverse events. I get not wanting to deal with that bureaucratic monstrosity called VAERS, but still. The tort lawyers are going to have a field day with this, unless they were bought off/mafia’d, too.

    In Germany. How fitting.

    Antifa issued a Kill List of 53 AfD politicians in Germany complete with bomb-making instructions, and the Berlin elections face a repeat as 13K ballots were found in the garbage. Meanwhile, the trash Washington Post praised the scandalous German election and fantasized “general acceptance of its results”.

    53 politicians of the patriotic “Alternative for Germany” (AfD) party were doxed with their home addresses on a far-left Antifa website ahead of the election, with detailed instructions on how to make IEDs to kill elected populist politicians: “Let’s kill the bastards with explosives”, the online pamphlet read, which was published on Sept. 13, according to the German Federal Police BKA. “It’s time for violent action. (AfD politician Björn) Höcke is one example who has to die.” The politicians’ bodyguards are also valid targets, the appeal said.

  13. pouncer says:

    Merck’s new pill molnupiravir works against Covid — IF administered early. Like, within a few days of symptoms presenting. So they say, and why not? Seems reasonable.

    HCQ and Ivermectin, however, are “proven ineffective” because patients in serious trouble many days after symptoms develop, don’t improve with administration of these drugs. So they say, but huh?

    I wonder why Dr Fauci, who has been in government long enough to have had power at the time, didn’t impose shut downs and “masking”; mandatory testing and quarantine, etc — during the AIDS problem. Actually, I don’t wonder that. I wonder why the media isn’t asking that.

    Do you know, the molnupiravir is an “anti-viral” similar to the treatment for AIDS? Neither AIDS nor Covid is “cured” by the anti-virals, the best we see is that symptoms are reduced, life is prolonged, and contagion is reduced — not eliminated. Having a disease ENdemic in the population, as AIDS is now, seems to be an outcome the CDC is okay with.

    How come I see so many news/analysis reports on vaccination rates by racial demographic groups but the COVID death rates by race are not as widely reported? For that matter, the death rate for old gay men who had been struggling with AIDS for the past 40 years? Wouldn’t it be interesting if AZT had provided AIDS sufferers COVID protections in the same way HCQ was alleged to protect malaria sufferers? Wouldn’t it be equally interesting if Covid ultimately reduces the incidence of AIDS via the “co-morbidity” process?

  14. cdquarles says:

    Once AIDS was shown to be a sexually transmitted disease among a politically protected subgroup, well, politics prevented quarantines, contact tracing, et. al. Flip side of that is that studying how AIDS worked advanced knowledge of immune system function in general as well as how many viral infections worked specifically.

    The CDC has to be “okay” with endemic viruses. We all have to live that way with them. Note that tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis all are also still with us. We have to live with endemic bacteria and fungi, too. It is rare that any infectious disease is truly eliminated, and where that has happened, it has been basically by replacement of a more virulent form with one that is less virulent.

    Right now, the main problem is an epidemic of fear allowing an epidemic of tyranny. Just say no; and act to stop the tyranny.

    More COVID confusion:
    This article says that the FDA has redacted one of the main (20%) Pfizer ingredients.
    It links to this two week old demand for FDA transparency and removal of the redaction indicated.

    Click to access IR0558-FDA-Ingredients-in-Pfizer-Vaccine_FINAL.pdf

    That linked demand links to the document (created back on May 18, 2021) with the redacted secret ingredient. As of a week ago, the WayBackMachine shows that yes, that major ingredient was indeed redacted in the document:
    But NOW, after the demand for transparency, apparently the FDA has decided to print the mystery ingredient!
    Drum roll……. And the redacted secret ingredient is — WATER. At least according to the newest version of the report. I honestly don’t know what to believe. In the first place, why on earth would they redact WATER as an ingredient?! Any suggestions? Why would it take an expedited Freedom of Information Request to remove the redaction? Now that the FDA has removed it and says it’s just water, why should I believe them?

    Curiouser and curiouser.

    Most people divide political groups along lines of capitalist vs socialists, liberals vs conservatives, Dems vs Repubs, upper caste vs lower caste, rich vs poor, etc. All of that is a bit superficial. The REAL split is this: We’ll-tell-you-how-to-live vs Run-your-own-life.

    The United States was (at least to my knowledge) the first major nation to be explicitly founded on the principle of Run-your-own-life. Those were the days…

In 1968 along came the Tet Offensive which collapsed public support for the current strategy and ended the political careers of both men.

    Fast forward to today’s pandemic, and it would seem that the Tet Offensive is now upon us.”

  29. The True Nolan says:

    Anyone who has been around the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming propaganda long enough is well aware that one of the favorite CAGW tactics was “curve fitting” where someone would take a dataset of supposed past temperatures (or tornadoes, or ocean levels, of mass extinctions, etc.), come up with a hopefully plausible sounding) mechanism that MIGHT have something to do with it, and to then twiddle a few parameters (out of perhaps a dozen parameters) in their equations and algorithms until their “theory” fit the past data. Result? “EUREKA! We have PROVEN that the color of men’s socks is influenced by CO2 such that high wheat will lead to the starvation of millions!”

    Here is an article about an equation with a SINGLE VARIABLE which can match any dataset you have! https://wmbriggs.com/post/37593/
    The point? Matching a theory to already known data may be a useful way to do preliminary testing for plausibility, but the only way to know if you have a successful explanation is to check whether currently unknown data matches your theory.

    (Just as a side comment, such an equation might be very useful for encryption, especially in steganography.)

    @another ian, the conclusion is easy. If you want to evaluate the modelling software, that might be more of a challenge.

    Conclusion: The ivermectin docking we identified may interfere with the attachment of the spike to the human cell membrane. Clinical trials now underway should determine whether ivermectin is an effective treatment for SARS-Cov2 infection.

    Very good discussion of the psychological factors which go into creating a mass psychosis. Time of 4:35 to 8:00 especially good. Put briefly, when people are placed in a position of diminished social interaction, no sense of purpose, and existential fear, they will latch onto any plausible explanation and perceived solution, regardless of whether it is rational or not. They resist at any cost abandoning that solution, because that would return them to the unacceptable earlier state of isolation and fear. They see any resistance to their favored solution as an attack on their entire psychological framework. (We see the same mechanisms at work not only in the COVID psychosis, but in CAGW, and in the War On Terror.)

    Not mistakes, lies.

    The Government has been analyzing CMS data. Not a shock; they have every person over 65’s medical records, in real time, as everyone over 65, statistically speaking, is on Medicare and the government pays for it. They therefore have the records.

    The US Government has been analyzing this data through Project Salus.

    They know that:

    71% of the Covid-19 cases occurred in these fully-vaccinated people and roughly 80% of the population >65 is vaccinated. In other words they know the vaccines do not stop you from getting Covid.

    Both of the mRNA vaccines lose effectiveness between 4-6 months post-injection; the failure rate doubles between 5-6 months as opposed to 3-4 months.

    Age is NOT why the vaccines lose effectiveness. It is simply that they stop working.

    While Moderna vaccines work slightly better than the Pfizer ones, the key word here is slightly. Both degrade materially and the difference in the 5-6 month timeframe is not statistically significant. Yes, it appears to be slightly better but not statistically so. In other words the damn things do not work to provide durable protection — period.

    The nuclear lie: As of August 7th 60% of hospitalizations were among fully-vaccinated individuals. You have heard repeatedly that this is now a “disease of the unvaccinated.” That is a damned, knowing lie and they knew it all the way back to the first of August.

    In the 5-6 month timeframe the hospitalization protection also is wildly ineffective; the rate per 100,000 approximately doubles between the 3-4 month and 5-6 month time periods.

    Prior infection is highly protective but post six months vaccination has become much less-so. Note that “prior infection” now goes back 18 months to the first wave. Do we still need to have a conversation about “natural immunity”? No: THE US GOVERNMENT KNOWS DAMNED WELL AND HAS PROVED THAT INFECTION PROTECTS BETTER THAN THEIR FRAUDULENT JABS.
    This is now all in the data folks, and the US Government knows it.”

    From that link of another ian’s:

    “The vaccine antibodies take control of the immune system and defend only against a targeted virus.

    Among vaccinated individuals, a COVID variant virus is not recognized by the specialized antibodies provided by the vaccine, and the natural antibodies have been programmed to stand down.”


    Yes. It is indeed what Vanden Bossche was warning about. But it’s also something I’ve been warning about on here – the Hoskins Effect, which has been a known danger from repeated flu vaccinations for over four decades.

    The depressing thing is that it’s made no difference to the authorities’ enthusiasm for regular flu vaccinations, nor the public’s appetite for receiving them. Quite the opposite. The worse the flu jab performs, the more eager the public is to be jabbed. The thinking seems to be that the reason for adverse vaccine performance can only be that you didn’t get enough vaccinations. In the hysterical climate which surrounds COVID, I’d be astonished if these findings caused the public to act with any more scepticism than it does against the flu vaccines.

    Just think if Tolstoy was trying to get War And Peace out on twitter. Not gonna happen.

    And most people were using it to ask or blabber mostly where are you now or what are you doing? That, or I am here and this is what I’m eating…. and now I am going to my car… and so on with the most trivial and mundane, minute by minute, details of their lives.

    And once they increased the character count and people learned to concisely convey more important ideas and information, you didn’t need a twitter account to read the tweets of people that put out interesting, informative tweets.

    They almost… almost had me way back when, but it was really a stupid time waster, so I passed.

    I have a simple question:

    There’s a huge number of “tests” for Covid that have been withdrawn from use by the FDA, so does that mean all the testing done with them was garbage, or does it mean the new test kits makers paid more vig?

    The laboratories in the list below provided notification to the FDA that they developed and validated a diagnostic SARS-CoV-2 test as set forth in Section IV.A of the Policy for Coronavirus Disease-2019 Tests. Although the FDA had previously included them on the website notification list of laboratories offering diagnostic tests under that policy, they have now been removed from that notification list and placed on the list below. As noted in the guidance, among other things, if significant problems are identified with such a test that cannot be or have not been addressed in a timely manner, the FDA intends to remove the laboratory from the notification list. The FDA has determined that there are significant problems with the tests being offered by the laboratories listed below that cannot be or have not been addressed in a timely manner. As such, these laboratories have now been removed from the notification list and placed on the removal list below. Laboratories may also voluntarily withdraw their test notification and/or their EUA, and such tests are noted with an asterisk.

    The FDA expects that laboratories on this list will not offer or use their diagnostic SARS-CoV-2 laboratory developed test that was previously on the notification list. Other tests that are EUA authorized may be available for use by these laboratories, in accordance with those EUAs.

    Showing 1 to 28 of 28 entries

    The commercial manufacturers in the list below provided notification to the FDA that they validated and intended to distribute a serology test as set forth in Section IV.D of the Policy for Coronavirus Disease-2019 Tests. The FDA had previously included them on the website notification list of commercial manufacturers distributing serology test kits under that policy, but they have now been removed from that notification list and placed on the list below. As noted in the guidance, if an EUA request is not submitted by a commercial manufacturer of a serology test within a reasonable period of time, or if significant problems are identified with such a test that cannot be or have not been addressed in a timely manner, the FDA intends to remove the manufacturer and test from the notification list. Commercial manufacturers may also voluntarily withdraw their test notification, and such tests are noted with an asterisk.

    The FDA expects that the tests on this list will not be distributed unless and until an EUA is issued for the test, and the FDA may take additional actions as appropriate.

    Recommendations for clinical laboratories and health care providers regarding these tests may be found in the FDA’s June 19, 2020, Letter to Clinical Laboratory Staff and Health Care Providers.

    I am reminded of all the CAGW psuedo-scientific studies and papers churned out over the last four decades. When the climatology datasets and climate models were corrected, withdrawn, altered, modified, discarded, or adjusted, were any of the papers they had supported ever removed or even updated with a notice that they were based on incorrect (sometimes fraudulent) data?

    A worthy cause …

    FBI agents raided the Caldwell farm on January 19, 2021. In their initial charging document (page 5), the FBI claimed that Tom was a “member” of the Oath Keepers organization. The FBI, in fact, claimed that Tom held “a leadership role” in the Oath Keepers with the title “Commander.” The FBI also accused Tom of forcing his way inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6th as part of a “stack” of Oath Keepers. The Government accused Tom of engaging in “a plan to forcibly attack the Capitol” on January 6th. The Government also accused Tom of “hunting down” members of Congress on January 6th. Finally, the President, Attorney General, Speaker of the House, and virtually every Democrat on Capitol Hill has claimed that the January 6th protestors are racists, white supremacists, and domestic terrorists. Every one of these claims is false. Read the FACTS.

    While the Oath Keepers organization is a patriotic, respected group of former law enforcement and veterans, Tom Caldwell was NEVER a “member” of this organization. The Government has subsequently admitted (page 9) that Tom was not a member of the Oath Keepers. In fact, the President of the Oath Keepers has publicly stated that Tom was not a member of his organization.
    Accordingly, Tom Caldwell was not the “Commander” of the Oath Keepers. Comically, when confronted by skeptical FBI agents during a 2-hour interrogation that Tom was a leader of the Oath Keepers, Tom set them straight: “I’m a retired Navy Lt. COMMANDER, that’s why I’m called COMMANDER.” That’s correct, the FBI believed that Tom Caldwell was the “Commander” of the Oath Keepers because many on social media referred to this disabled Navy veteran by his retired rank. The Government has admitted (page 4) they were wrong and that Tom was not an Oath Keepers leader.

    @Another Ian:

    Things are not helped by the fact that California is, right now, banning various tranches of Diesel Rigs and requiring them to be “re-engined” with the newest tech to continue to be used. I put some detail up after dinner…

    This includes Refer Trailers (those fridges run on Diesel), Drayage rigs (the special trucks on docks that take stuff off ships and to other transport), and most any other big truck around. Oh, and ships wanting to dock here MUST plug into “shore power” instead of running their own engine. Oh, and our “regs” extend 24 miles out into the ocean for ships passing by.

    I’ve seen several Truck / Bus ads saying “can’t be registered in Calif. any more due to new smog law”. So what happens if, oh, 10% or 20% of your fleet becomes unavailable?

    Realize that California has a few major port facilities for Asian / Pacific goods and markets…

    With that said:

    I don’t think we will have a “Grind to a halt” moment. There’s a Loooonng period of degradation and individual machines halting before you get to “lock up”. Plenty of time for adaptive behaviours. (Though there’s a high chance the Political Empty Suits in charge will not allow them or even know they could be done…)

    Power prices are hitting fresh records as winter approaches
    Crisis is already forcing some businesses to reduce production

    European industry is being pushed closer to breaking point as the region’s energy crisis worsens by the day.

    Power and gas prices are hitting fresh records almost daily, and some energy-intensive companies have temporarily shut operations because they’re becoming too expensive to run. As winter approaches and Europeans start to turn on their heaters, the squeeze will intensify, pushing more executives into tough decisions about keeping plants open.
    EU natural gas benchmark contract has doubled in the last two months

    Ammonia producer SKW Stickstoffwerke Piesteritz GmbH is among those that’s been forced into drastic steps. The German company, which burns through 640 gigawatt hours of natural gas each year, equivalent to about 50,000 households, said Tuesday it will cut production by 20% to offset rising gas prices.

    I’m not at all surprised to see red cell stacking in some folks. Perhaps even most folks. There’s been so many reports of clotting injury that there must be a much larger percentage of folks with sub-clinical clot related side effects, as shown in the blood slide.

    Some more extreme reports regarding vaccine deaths.

    Yes, there are lots of reports of weird stuff in the vaccines. While the death count appears ludicrous on the surface, I did hear from a very credible source that excess deaths are higher this year then 2020. If so, and I think it is, it makes zero logical sense as the majority of the most vulnerable would have died in 2020, and the combination of vaccines and natural immunity should be much higher this year.

    Perhaps natural immunity is less then we thought as who knows how many false positives were recorded, scaring millions perhaps, and forcing them into an unnecessary and financially costly quarantine. Also they may assume they have natural immunity to the Wuflu, when they do not. Zero people get reports at what cycle there positive result came in at.
    The other possibility with all the excess deaths, which may be well over 150,000, is that much of it is adverse reactions to the vaccines, but the lack of autopsies allow them to be recorded as various “other causes” of fatalities.

  90. The True Nolan says:

    @cdquarles. Yes, rouleax formation. That would account for clotting and high viscosity. Not sure what would be the mechanism causing it to happen. I heard a couple examiners claiming that there is an electric charge responsible. If you have knowledge of the details, any information on causes and possible treatments would be appreciated.

    PG, I am aware of Mr Looney’s claims. ( unfortunate name as he sounds very rationale
    https://www.brighteon.com/ff7c79ce-367e-478d-aa74-76868f454e4b )
    Official excess mortality numbers here ( not that “official “ is accurate.)
    One way to check may be, besides funeral homes, look at revenue reviews of funeral businesses.
    Here is some 2021 US excess mortality figures….

    So despite the claimed 460,000 excess 2020 deaths, 300,000 plus claimed Covid-19 deaths, which should have resulted in a reduction in 2021, and despite much greater 2021 natural immunity ( which we know works) and vastly more 2021 vaccinated, we have 2021 racing ahead of 2020 in excess deaths? How many of those will turn out to be known vaccine side effect like, yet be labeled cardiac, or other adverse events, and or Covid?

    Also how many 2020 deaths were caused by Government “health care” policy and “treatment” protocols, and superfluous lock downs?
    I suspect the vast majority.

    And yet supposedly we only had one million excess deaths in 2020. That is one excess death for every 8,000 people. Looking at 2020 birthdates we see a fairly consistent drop in most nations. A quick WAG of about .25 per thousand. So the birth drop is reducing population increase by about 2 per 8,000. Long term vaccine harms may turn into the largest cause of population reduction. Especially since people are c
    breaking the inflammatory recommendation diets from government and catching on to the health benefits of reduced carbs, increased healthy fats and proteins, and intermittent fasting.

    A link from the American Society of Hematologists: https://ashpublications.org/blood/article/107/11/4205/21991/Rouleaux-formation. This one does not address treatments. It is typically seen when the immune system is activated. Proteins in the plasma and/or platelet activation make the red blood cells stick together. If I am remembering correctly, it may also be seen when people with sickle cell anemia have sickling triggered. This makes the red blood cell membrane leaky and the spikiness can have the cells have their membranes fuse with other cells.

  103. The True Nolan says:

    @p.g. “Everyone left the buildings and after the all clear their badges were locked out so they could not get back in.”

    Perhaps I am a bit naïve or unknowledgeable about their security systems — but I have worked in a location that needed 1)an eye scan 2)badge swipe 3)verification by guard 4) another badge swipe 5) passage through rotating chamber with built in weighing 6) finally get to walk to my office. I doubt Facebook is quite that tight. Couldn’t you 1) break ONE door 2) have a security person go to fire escape doors and open doors from the inside 3) station a badge checker at each door 4) let in just enough people to get servers back up.

    @cdquarles “Proteins in the plasma and/or platelet activation make the red blood cells stick together.”

    Ah! Thanks! At https://ashpublications.org/blood/article/107/11/4205/21991/Rouleaux-formation
    It says “When rouleaux formation is truly present, it is caused by an increase in cathodal proteins, such as immunoglobulins and fibrinogen.” Perhaps the newly produced spike proteins are themselves cathodal proteins.

  104. cdquarles says:

    Perhaps, though if the immune system is activated, any immunoglobulins that have bound any antigens may be sufficient, even if the antigens are not so, by themselves.

    An article translated from the Italian.
    A 118 (118 is like the US 911) ambulance doctor speaking of increased vaxx side effects claims that the vaxx is reactivating other morbidities that were latent. “The cause-effect link is difficult to establish. Because then it seems studied at a table: each of these dies from the flare-up of things he already had. Therefore, these drugs kill in a subtle way, because the tip of the iceberg, the one you see above the sea, are the previous pathologies; the largest part, the one that is not seen, consists in the administration of these experimental drugs, which has caused the revitalization and resurgence of these pathologies.”
    He says that many (not all) of the doctors and nurses are suffering a sort of brainwashing. They KNOW the vaxx is safe, therefore when someone dies it MUST be something which the vaxx did not cause. Thus they do not report excess vaxx deaths, which PROVES the vaxx is safe — and round and round we go.

  115. H.R. says:

    Late this afternoon I heard from my sister that my oldest brother is in the hospital with Covid-some-variant-or-other. He’s on oxygen, but I don’t know what other treatment he’s receiving.

    My next-oldest brother (I’m the youngest of three bros) asked me to sit with his wife. She had a bad stroke about 6 months ago and is bedridden.

    He has been working from home and is her caregiver. His company has a quarterly all day meeting and there’s no excuses accepted. That was Tuesday, the 5th. My oldest brother was going to sit all day with sis-in-law, but four or 5 days before the meeting, he had to cancel because both he and his wife had tested positive for Covid. The got tested because they were sick.

    So I filled in on Tuesday as all day bedside nurse, knowing only that my oldest brother was fer sure Covid positive, but figuring that he’d have a rough time – maybe – but he should be OK. He’s 72 with no comorbidities and not carrying any excess pounds and has been through all the childhood diseases and all of the previous nasty flus.

    When I heard he was hospitalized, my first thought was, “Bad news, if it’s at that point. Worse news if he’s been jabbed.”

    I haven’t been able to find out much, and I won’t be able to go to the hospital and make a nuisance of myself until I get some answers about his treatment, condition, and prognosis.

    I did find out that he hasn’t had the jab, so there’s no vaccine vengeance and vexation involved. Since he’s on oxygen, I know it’s targeting the lungs and can only guess that’s hopefully the only weak point the bug is exploiting and the other organs are OK.

    I did hear from my sis that the Doc expects him to be on oxygen for three weeks, but… is some of that three weeks to be spent at home or are they expecting him to be in the hospital all that time? I’ll probably find out tomorrow.

    Three things I’m trying to bring up in this comment:
    1) The issue that’s been worrisome but is not in play with my brother is that some hospitals have been refusing to treat unjabbed people. This hospital doesn’t seem to be playing that political game.

    2) Today is the 8th. He cancelled doing the nurse duty on at least Sept. 27th, when middle brother asked if I could fill in. So he was sick enough to get tested at least a few days before then and then call off.

    That means it was about (fudge, guess, squint) 2 weeks +/- from feeling sick to being hospitalized today. I’m sure he and his wife saw a doctor – why else a test? – but it seems the Doc wasn’t giving sound advice for treatment. Two weeks from sick to hospital! So another issue re the Doc; Hands tied? Ignorant? Following policies? I dunno.

    3) His (5th? I’ve lost count) wife is about 25 years younger than my brother. I believe she’s on the upside of recovery if not completely recovered. I’ll find out tomorrow. But there’s that Covid and age thing. Over 70 and gets the whammy. Younger and not at any particular risk of death.

    If there are some informative or instructive details to come of this incident, I’ll post them. There might be something informative about his Doctor and his treatment. TBD.

    If not, I’ll let y’all just know how the story ended.

  118. H.R. says:

    @AC Osborn – Thanks. I’m not sure if he’ll need a bit good luck and will pull through or if he’s really a goner at this point.

    I hope to find out more, today. But there’s all the stupid FauXi Flu rules. I can’t get in the hospital to find out anything, but I may be able to call him if he’s not in intensive care. Just a visit and those charts hanging on the end of the bed** would tell me all I need to know, but no can do under current rules.

    Also, and it’s that HIPPA thing E.M. was working on, no one is allowed to tell me anything unless I’m on his “OK to share medical information list.” I know I’m not.

    Most people keep their ‘OK’ list simple; spouse, sometimes kids or just one kid to share info with the others, the Doctors they see so they can know what the others are doing.

    **Those charts are no longer there, actually. They now have computers on carts the nurse moves room-to-room where all the patient information is kept electronically. BUT… when the Mrs. was last in the hospital, if you were in the room when a nurse came in, you could just look at the screen while she was busy with the patient. 😁👍 But, but… I can’t get in the room. 😒

  119. E.M.Smith says:


    Big server farm rooms are typically devoid of people other than someone actively working on a server install, removal, or hands-on fix (which is rare). Security sits at a desk in front of the server room and gives folks badges for entry if needed, and keep out anyone without the required badges. (Why? Because it is very noisy, very cold from the excess AC, and you don’t trust the security guy with the computers… from power buttons to keyboards to other “don’t touch” that a security guy might be interested in touching… )

    So if the doors drop, no security is inside the server room to let anyone in via a fire door.

    Our supercomputer server room had exactly 2 doors. One in the Operators Office. One fire exit into the 3 hour burn through fire tunnel (that also had fire alarm linked magnetic hold open self dropping doors…). The operators office also had only one other door, out into the hallway in front of the 3 hour burn through fire tunnel entrance. IF you were outside the building and the fire alarm dropped, you would be at least 3 fire doors from the computer room floor (or 4 going the other way)

    All the fire doors were steel with some non-flammable core material, fairly heavy, and with heavy duty locks & bolts. Designed to keep out anyone trying to steal a few $Million worth of gear or information and resist fire for 3 hours. It would be difficult to “break in”. Best approach would be a very skilled locksmith to pick the lock if you did not have working badges and all the physical keys were inside (assuming they still had a physical key system in the doors, which many places no longer have). Other than that, it would be a power cutting tool (rotary metal cutting saw) and a couple of hours…

    More than once I went out the “back door” of the server room to get a package (rear was also delivery) only to hear the door latch behind me… and realize I had to go all the way around through the fire tunnel to the operator room to the front entrance to re-open the back door. It had no handle for entrance, just a crash bar for exit.

  120. H.R. says:

    @E.M. – The way I read things, server room aside, the employees couldn’t even get in the building. No doubt there was glass somewhere to break through.

    25+ years ago, I worked at a place where we had badge entry to the building, BUT… it also had a keyed lock. This was early on enough that the mag stripe lock failed every now and then while I was working there. No big deal with the lock.

    Keyed locks can be picked and electronic devices can be defeated, but that server room back door didn’t need either type, since no-one was ever expected to enter through that door. Someone was thinking the day they installed that door. No entry, period.

    BTW, E.M., after a few choice cusswords, did you have a laugh at yourself after getting locked out? The few times something similar has happened to me, that was my reaction.

    Guys on the shop floor sneaking out a side or back door for a smoke always remembered to put a pebble or something in the door, whereas I was an occasional dumbass for focusing on – whatever – and getting myself locked out. It always made me laugh… after a few choice words directed at myself.

  121. E.M.Smith says:


    I’ve not read the actual “story” about the folks (as I don’t use their product at all and have no interest in ever working at their site) so I’m just basing off of what other folks say about it. Meaning I have no idea if it was building, server room, or what. So I figured if their servers were down AND they had their badge system in the server room and it was down then no way in…

    But if it is “just the office”, my surmise would shift to “Yes, it’s a few $Million / hour to the company while the site is down, BUT if I break a window I’ll be charged for it or reprimanded so let the Big Boss come and break a window.” The Big Bosses, of course, being more busy preening to each other than actually thinking about practical solutions…

    I know that while 30 year ago I’d have taken a hammer to a window, today there’s no way. “Not my problem” so I’d not take that management risk. (I often have a hammer in the car for various uses from construction to camping to emergency windshield removal…) I’d certainly not take ANY risks at Faceplant, Gargoil, or Twatter. They have demonstrated intolerance toward thoughts they don’t like and I can’t predict if they would like my choice of solution or not.

    Oh, and it was about 100 feet around to the other door, so only one “Damit” was sufficient… ;-)

  123. Simon Derricutt says:

    H.R. – sad to hear about your brothers. If you could get in there, maybe buy a little bottle of hand-sanitiser alcohol-based gel, chuck out the gel, and refill it with the pour-on Ivermectin. Then of course make a show of sanitising your hands before shaking hands…. Maybe leave the bottle behind so he could sanitise his hands each day for 5 days or so…. Won’t be much of a help, since a bit late, but maybe better than nothing and mop up any excess spike protein in the blood/cells.

    Seems Remdesivir has a built-in chance of severe kidney damage for around 1 in 5 users. It does seem that if things get bad enough to need hospital then the only things the doctors are officially allowed to do (without risking being sued or losing their job) have a high risk of killing the patient. Even the latest miracle drug, Molnupiravir, might cure you of Covid but also probably sets up a death from cancer in a few years. Funny thing, in that for those tests (unlike for HCQ and IVM official tests) they do insist on early treatment being necessary. Pretty obvious thing to do with an antiviral – if you stop them replicating early enough then you won’t get as ill.

    All I can do is wish your brothers luck.

  124. jim2 says:

    The pattern was pretty obvious before, but what with them already pushing this new anti-viral that gums up RNA replication, it’s now bleeding obvious the Federal medical agencies will recommend only the esoteric, very expensive drugs. So, IMO, noble cause corruption and greed lie behind their behavior. They all should be convicted of mass murder and sentenced to life in Rikers.

  125. jim2 says:

    HR – Sorry to hear about your brother. I hope it turns out well for him.

  126. jim2 says:

    HR – Have you recommended IVM or some of the other non-esoteric treatments to your other brother?

  127. jim2 says:

    Molnupiravir is converted to rNHC, as I understand this. You might want to save or screen-shot these articles.

    Molnupiravir is metabolized into a ribonucleoside analog that resembles cytidine, ß-D-N 4-Hydroxycytidine 5′-triphosphate


    rNHC has powerful in vitro and in vivo activity against a large number of highly pathogenic emerging RNA viruses and represents a potentially important drug for use in the current and future pandemics. However, the risks for the host may not be zero and these risks need to be carefully evaluated in undertaking therapies that are by their nature designed to change the coding capacity of a virus’ genetic material. Evaluating the utility of this drug should be done in those likely to receive the greatest benefit with monitoring provided to assess potential long-term genotoxic side effects. In addition, developing strategies to limit the potential for genotoxicity should be an important goal.


  128. H.R. says:

    I just heard they released him this morning and the 3 weeks of oxygen is at home.

    I’ll be calling him soon and asking him about Ivermectin. I have plenty.

    Thanks to all for the concern and your best wishes for my brother.

  129. H.R. says:

    Oh, did I just read a here few days ago that you DO NOT use Ivermectin if you’ve been given Remdesivir?

    I’ll be asking what his treatment is.

    Your link is very good. So in a study of 13 vaccinated 11 had systemic distribution of the spike protein. Also links to a Japanese study showing distribution to disparate body organs. ( Portions of the Japanese study are redacted! It looks like some of the redactions have to do with what labs were involved in the studies)

    These people can’t tell the difference between heroin and beef steak!

    With its chimneys towering 200 meters above the industrial heartland of England, West Burton A power station is a relic of the fossil fuel age. When fired up, its boilers burn thousands of tonnes of coal each day, spewing out the carbon dioxide that’s warming up the planet.

    After more than 50 years of operation, it will close next year, part of a global transition into green energy sources like wind and solar. It’s only rarely used, but for several days in September, it was this old, polluting facility that kept the lights on in the U.K.

    West Burton isn’t an oddity. Across the world, fossil fuels are making a remarkable comeback as a super-charged recovery from the pandemic boosts demand. For all the green energy promises and plans, that transition is in its infancy, and the world still leans heavily on fossils. It’s an addiction built up over two and a half centuries, and it runs deep.

  137. YMMV says:

    @another ian, the original link for the we-screwed-up article is here:
    (same article) which then links to
    (which I guess has the audio in their archives, but you have to pay to get it)

    So I will content myself with a couple quotes.

    According to the Doctor, who cites a brand new, peer-reviewed research study out of Japan “They made a mistake – they thought the spike protein was a great target antigen, only to discover it is a toxin, that can travel to many organs of the body, causing severe damage.”

    That sums it up nicely. How severe the damage is or will be, that’s still an open question.

    If this Doctor is correct, and if the peer-reviewed report (HERE) is accurate, almost everyone who took the vaccine is going to be dead very soon because their own bodies are now manufacturing the very spike protein which is a Toxin that will kill them.

    Probably an exaggeration, but there very well could be long term harms. You can listen to the audio at on of the two news article links. The doctor is very concerned but he does not say in that interview that the toxin will kill them. He does make a very strong case that it is scary though.

    The article links to the peer reviewed report that the doctor mentions. It’s in Japanese, but the pages say “PFIZER CONFIDENTIAL”. The tables are in English.

    “If this is true”

    There are 535 members of Congress. On the lower boundary this is 19% of the members, plus staff and family or close to one in five. On the upper boundary it is more than a third.

    Remember folks that doctors have been threatened with loss of their medical licenses for writing prescriptions and chain pharmacies, which are most of them, have in many cases refused to fill said prescriptions. The entire reason people have gone out and bought “pony paste” is that they can’t go to the local doc-in-a-box and get a script for Ivermectin.

    Incidentally I trust animal meds in this sort of context far more than human ones. Go kill someone’s tens-of-millions of dollar racehorse and see how long you live. Whack Fluffy and it will be all over the news for a week with the responsible vet run out of town.

    It is in Japanese and the study was done in Japan. It does in fact show that the spike protein ends up all over your body and with concentrations in places you do not want it concentrating such as the spleen (largest lymph node and responsible for cleaning crap out of your circulation) and reproductive glands.

    I read a translation / interpretation of it (somewhere) and I don’t remember it making any claim about how long the spike protein hangs around, only where it ends up. There are graphs of where it moves over time though.

    Japanese uses 4 different symbol systems in the writing of it. One is Chinese Characters with their meaning in Chinese. Another is Chinese Characters where the sound of them means something in Japanese. Another is the little single line often circular sort of thin lines (IIRC 50 or so of them as syllables of Japanese sounds). Then there’s some Roman / western letters used for actual words or as abbreviations of western things. So if you see “O.L.” in the middle of a sentence that stands for “Office Lady” who is the receptionist / secretary and maker of tea and such.

    As Chinese does not have those last two, that is how you can tell Chinese from Japanese.

    I was speaking some amount of Japanese between Sushi dinners and Karate class and looked into learning it. When I hit the writing systems, that ended the idea…


    This article is about the modern writing system and its history. For an overview of the entire language, see Japanese language. For the use of Latin letters to write Japanese, see Romanization of Japanese.

    The modern Japanese writing system uses a combination of logographic kanji, which are adopted Chinese characters, and syllabic kana. Kana itself consists of a pair of syllabaries: hiragana, used primarily for native or naturalised Japanese words and grammatical elements; and katakana, used primarily for foreign words and names, loanwords, onomatopoeia, scientific names, and sometimes for emphasis. Almost all written Japanese sentences contain a mixture of kanji and kana. Because of this mixture of scripts, in addition to a large inventory of kanji characters, the Japanese writing system is considered to be one of the most complicated in current use.
    To a lesser extent, modern written Japanese also uses acronyms from the Latin alphabet, for example in terms such as “BC/AD”, “a.m./p.m.”, “FBI”, and “CD”. Romanized Japanese is most frequently used by foreign students of Japanese who have not yet mastered kana, and by native speakers for computer input.

    Looks like there’s another one I didn’t learn about. Hentaigana uses archaic symbols for effect:

    1 Use of scripts
    1.1 Kanji
    1.2 Hiragana
    1.3 Katakana
    1.4 Rōmaji
    1.5 Arabic numerals
    1.6 Hentaigana
    1.7 Additional mechanisms
    Hentaigana (変体仮名), a set of archaic kana made obsolete by the Meiji reformation, are sometimes used to impart an archaic flavor, such as in items of foods (esp. soba).

    Additional mechanisms
    Jukujikun refers to instances in which words are written using kanji that reflect the meaning of the word though the pronunciation of the word is entirely unrelated to the usual pronunciations of the constituent kanji. Conversely, ateji refers to the employment of kanji that appear solely to represent the sound of the compound word but are, conceptually, utterly unrelated to the signification of the word. Such admitted oddities, in combination with the need for the aforementioned furigana, a script component that annotates another script component for the assistance of the non-scholar, led the British linguist and diplomat Sir George Sansom to write:

    One hesitates for an epithet to describe a system of writing which is so complex that it needs the aid of another system to explain it. There is no doubt that it provides for some a fascinating field of study, but as a practical instrument it is surely without inferiors.

    So if you see this kind of stuff stuck in what looks like Chinese:
    then it is Japanese.

    As I noted in another comment, it was known that the payload of mRNA vaccines did make it to other organs before it was given emergency auth and that isn’t what I was talking about. I was responding to the assertion once vaccinated with a mRNA covid vaccine, your cells keep making it forever or for years. It doesn’t.

    @another ian, nice links.

    “Chief Epidemiologist Þórólfur Guðnason has decided that Iceland will halt the use of the Moderna vaccine in Iceland.”

    That leaves three vaccines, and a controversy about IVM. IVM should be easy enough to get there. Doesn’t everybody have a flock of sheep?

    The Swedish health agency’s chief epidemiologist, Anders Tegnell, went on the record stating, “The connection is especially clear when it comes to Moderna’s Spikevax, especially after the second dose.” While the health authorities here acknowledge the rare incidences, there is enough concern to issue the halt, at least temporarily for young people. Now other Nordic countries are joining these two, limiting the use of Moderna’s mRNA-1273. Finland’s national health authority, THL declared that this Nordic nation would put a pause on the use of mRNA-1273 in young men. Norway also joined the pack to lose Moderna, at least temporarily. On Friday, Iceland also joined Nordic peers to suspend the Moderna vaccine, at least temporarily, again citing risks of heart inflammation. Iceland went a step further, however.

    If you scroll down in the Japanese paper the last 1/2 or so is English. Most of the graphs have a “couple of days” length (in hours – up to 350 for some) and I only saw one that went to 9 days (measured in days at the end). Though it did still show a fair amount of persistence of “something”. (What Japanese I once had is now much reduced and I can’t tell what the two lines are in that graph).

    So what the paper is showing is that in just a few days, most of the stuff ends up in other organs. Not just a tiny bit, and preferentially concentrating where you do not want it.

    As to whether that is damaging or not, the paper is mute.
    As to what happens after day 9, it makes no claims.

    What bugs me is folks citing it claiming it is proof the spike lasts for months or continues to replicate. Near as I can tell, it makes no such claims. It just looks at where the constituent parts of the vexxine end up in the body and organs. Folks citing it as saying more than that need to pony up a good translation showing the same.

    Luciferase RNA-encapsulated LNP using luciferase RNA was intramuscularly administered at a dose of 50 µg RNA, and 15 minutes after administration.
    Blood, plasma and tissue were collected from 3 males and 3 females at 1, 2, 4, 8, 24 and 48 hours each.
    The biodistribution of LNP is evaluated by measuring the radioactivity concentration by the liquid scintillation counting method.
    Worth it. In both males and females, the radioactivity concentration was highest at the administration site at all measurement points.
    The radioactivity concentration in plasma was the highest 1 to 4 hours after administration. Also, mainly the liver, spleen, adrenal glands and
    Distribution to the ovaries was observed, and the highest radioactivity concentration in these tissues was 8 to 48 after administration.
    It was time. The total radioactivity recovery rate for doses other than the administration site is the highest in the liver (up to 18%).
    Significantly lower in the spleen (1.0% or less), adrenal gland (0.11% or less) and ovary (0.095% or less) compared to the liver
    won. In addition, the average concentration of radioactivity and the tissue distribution pattern were generally similar between males and females.
    The in vivo expression distribution of the antigen encoded by BNT162b2 is considered to depend on the LNP distribution. For this test
    Is the lipid composition of the luciferase RNA-encapsulated LNP the same as that of the submitted product of BNT162b2?
    Therefore, the results of this test are considered to show the distribution of BNT162b2-encapsulated LNP.

    Neither ALC-0315 nor ALC-0159 unchanged form was detected in urine. On the other hand, in the feces
    Unaltered forms of ALC-0315 and ALC-0159 were detected, at a rate of approximately 1% per dose, respectively.
    It was about 50%. In addition, as shown in Figure 3, a metabolite of ALC-0315 was detected in urine.

    No pharmacokinetic drug interaction studies have been conducted with this vaccine.
    8. Other pharmacokinetic studies
    No other pharmacokinetic studies of this vaccine have been conducted.
    9. Discussions and conclusions
    Plasma and liver ALC-0315 levels were highest in rat PK studies by 2 weeks post-dose
    It is reduced to about 1/7000 and about 1/4, respectively, and the ALC-0159 concentration is about 1/8000, respectively.
    And reduced to about 1/250. t½ is comparable in plasma and liver, ALC-0315 is 6-8 days,
    ALC-0159 was 2-3 days. The plasma t½ value indicates that each lipid is distributed in tissues as LNP.
    After that, it is considered to indicate that it was redistributed in plasma during the disappearance process.
    Little unchanged form of ALC-0315 was detected in either urine or feces, but in the rat PK study
    Monoester metabolites, double deesterified metabolites and 6-hexy from fecal and plasma samples collected in
    Ludecanoic acid was detected in urine, and a glucuronic acid conjugate, a double deesterified metabolite, was detected in urine. This metabolism
    The process is thought to be the major disappearance mechanism of ALC-0315, but quantitative data have been obtained to test this hypothesis.
    No. On the other hand, about 50% of the dose of ALC-0159 was excreted in feces as unchanged drug. In vitro metabolism experiment
    In, it was slowly metabolized by hydrolysis of the amide bond.

    Since the in vivo expression distribution of the antigen encoded by BNT162b2 is considered to depend on the LNP distribution,
    Intramuscularly administered luciferase RNA-encapsulated LNP to BALB / c mice as an alternative reporter protein
    The biodistribution was examined. As a result, expression of luciferase was observed at the administration site.
    Although the expression level was low, it was also observed in the liver. Expression at the administration site of luciferase is post-administration
    It was observed from 6 hours and disappeared 9 days after administration. Expression in the liver was observed from 6 hours after administration, and it was administered.
    It disappeared by 48 hours after giving. Locally administered luciferase RNA-encapsulated LNP circulates in the liver
    It was considered to indicate that it reached the ring blood and was taken up by the liver. Also, luciferase on rats
    When a radioactivity-labeled substance of ZeRNA-encapsulated LNP was intramuscularly administered, the radioactivity concentration was the highest at the administration site.
    Indicated. Other than the site of administration, it was highest in the liver, followed by the spleen, adrenal glands and ovaries.
    Total radioactivity recovery for doses in these tissues was significantly lower than in the liver. This result is
    This was consistent with the expression of luciferase in the liver in the mouse biodistribution test. note that,
    No toxic findings indicating liver damage were found in the rat repeated-dose toxicity test (M2.6.6.3).
    From the above nonclinical pharmacokinetic evaluation, it was shown that LNP that reached the circulating blood is distributed in the liver.
    In addition, metabolism and fecal excretion may be involved in the disappearance of ALC-0315 and ALC-0159, respectively.
    It was suggested.

    Yes, there were a couple of studies very early on during vaccine development that did show the mRNA was expressed in organs beyond the deltoid muscle. And yes, that is my objection. Natural mRNA doesn’t last forever in a cell and I haven’t seen anything about the vaccine mRNA that it doesn’t get eaten up after some number of days. Our cells wouldn’t work if various mRNA hung around for long periods of time. So, yes, I agree that anyone who says the vx mRNA is expressed beyond some small number of day has some ‘splaining to do.

    And on that note, I wish everyone a dynamite week ahead!! Health, wealth, and happiness all ’round.

    I’ve got the Google Translation above and it would be fine to just hear “Yeah, it’s about what Google did, so no need to redo the translation”.


    Yup, New week, new fun ;-)

    (And my understanding matches yours. You get a few hours to maybe a day of mRNA transcription into spike protein fragments, then the mRNA ought to be done and gone. I have no idea how long the spike protein hangs around nor what manifests on which cell surfaces and how much, but for some people it looks like enough to cause problems. The Japanese Pfizer folks were just doing a study of where the carrier lipids and such end up in the body and found they wander around and accumulate in strange unexpected places. Most of it ought to stay in the muscles, but since it doesn’t, you get a leveraged production of spike protein wherever it does land, and that includes in blood vessels, the heart, spleen, ovaries, testis, and even the brain. IF the shot is done into a vein or artery, it’s much worse, but that is a mistake and can be prevented with a “pull before push”.)

  152. E.M.Smith says:


    I think it is proven that the spike protein from the clot shot can cause heart issues as we have existence proof cases of it. I would expect the Spike Protein load to be lower from the vaccination than from an infection (at least, one that gets far enough along to have strong symptoms) so I’d expect the damage from a bad case of Covid to be worse than from the shot and in more people; but that’s speculation and needs proving up. (Which isn’t going to happen as we no longer have any control group).

    This is a significant part of why I’m opting for prevention rather than either sickness or vexxine. I’ll wait for a better working vaccine that has fewer problems and doesn’t replicate “wherever” but is a fixed small amount of virus toxin in a fixed place.

    I’ll also load up on ivermectin before any shot as it binds to the spike protein and I think that will minimize any damage potential.

    With any luck, I can find an antibody test somewhere that shows I’ve already got antibodies from running into the bug while using Ivermectin and got immunity anyway…

    This one is a smidge under $100 and might be worth it…


    Interesting note at this lab that does tests:


    NOTE: The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act require every CLIA certified COVID-19 testing site to report every diagnostic and screening test result (both positive and negative results) performed to detect SARS-CoV-2 or to diagnose a possible case of COVID-19 (e.g., molecular, antigen, antibody) to the appropriate state or local public health department, based on the individual’s residence. Public health reporting is mandated by law and is not affected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA specifically provides for public health reporting without a patient’s authorization or consent.

    So looks like no medical privacy allowed for finding out if you are immune, but the right of medical privacy gave the OK for killing unborn babies…

    One take away from Another Ian’s link was the strong indication of the spike protein going systemic in the LARGE MAJORITY of people. Not just when an improperly administered jab accidentally goes IV instead of IM. And yes, 8 or 9 days after each shot, after each booster could well be problematic.

    The excess deaths are, IMV, very problematic.
    The fact that they are insanely pushing a failed vaccine, while NOT doing a dozen studies that could validate or Cobden the vaccines is beyond negligent. The few autopsies done support the very serious vaccine harm and VARES, and the many many medical professionals who are testifying. There are many indications that the vaccine makers KNEW that the vaccine lose 40 percent of their antibodies monthly.
    KNEW that the shots did not stay IM.
    KNEW about the potential for OAS and ADE and knew their studies do not rule out such events.
    The insane insistence to not let anybody know what cycle their positive came in at is criminal.
    The absurd and criminal ignoring of natural immunity is wrong on so many levels
    The categorizing all cases 42 days post vaccination as non vaccinated is very wrong, and makes the already buggered data falsely
    The mandatory forcing of the vaccines to demographic groups with no need of it is criminal.
    The lack of studies before approval is corruption.
    The ignoring of very potent successful anti virals.
    On and on. But why? Why are they doing this insane destructive behavior?
    They deserve to not be trusted on anything. They should be prosecuted.

Below is a link to the report he cherry picked. He cherry picked cases. But below that in the report is the same sort of chart for hospitalizations and deaths. He didn’t include those and I think this guy should be ignored. Take a look for yourself and don’t take anything this guy says at face value without doing your own research!

  168. Simon Derricutt says:

    Jim2 – the “market ticker” blog is doing some cherry-picking, but over the last year and a half there has been a lot of discussion here and papers linked. EM has done a load of analysis, and CDQ has added in a lifetime of experience at the sharp end. Net result seems to me to be that the spike protein causes a lot of damage in the body, from making blood-cells form rouleaux and thus causing micro-clots and blocking capillary blood vessels to making the epithelial cells of blood vessels “sticky” rather than smooth. I’ve watched the video of celebrities and politicians being “jabbed”, and notice that I never see people try to pull the plunger back first to check whether they’ve hit a blood vessel and that thus they will deliver the vax intravenously rather than intra-muscular. It thus seems that the risk from the vaccination process itself is larger than it should be, and that the vax itself is a higher risk than is reasonable and each “booster” will raise those risks a bit higher. With the antibody titre dropping off at around 40% per month, boosters will be needed every 6-8 months in perpetuity, given that the virus looks to be now endemic rather than a pandemic. Thus it’s pretty obvious that some years down the line the summed risk from the jabs will exceed the risks of the disease for most people.

    Thus though Karl may be over-egging it for now, it looks to me that he will unfortunately end up pretty close to the mark. Does getting vaccinated when you’ve had Covid and recovered destroy your immunity? The evidence isn’t in yet. However, looks like it might, because you’re telling the body to generate the wrong antibodies for the variant of virus that’s going around, and to concentrate resources on hitting the spike protein rather than the nucleoside protein that doesn’t change rapidly (and that natural immunity would otherwise recognise if it hadn’t been zapped).

    Throughout the pandemic very little information has been dependable or reliable. Right back at the start, the WHO said it was not transmissible between humans – how much more wrong could they have been?

    At the moment, the published data does seem to imply that there is a lower personal risk of death if you take the vax. On the other hand, other evidence (from EM amongst others such as Uttar Pradesh) says that if you hit it with IVM as soon as you recognise that you’re infected then that’s even lower risk than the vax, and with little risk of passing the virus on (because you don’t realise you’re infectious if you’ve had the vax and get infected).

    Once is chance, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action. Look at the number of times we’ve got bum information about this, and how the simple fixes have been demonised and have been removed from sale. Looks like enemy action to me.

  169. jim2 says:

    SD – I just want to find the truth, as far as that is possible. People like this guy aren’t conducive to that end.

    I’m not going to get a booster because I believe the vax does present risks. I’m for IVM and other safe treatments. This new drug that jacks RNA replication appears to be a potential mutagen, so I won’t be taking it either, but my opinion is based on a medical paper, not hyperbole.

  171. rhoda klapp says:

    From Jim2’s link. The 2021 line is tracking mostly above the 2020 line. Even ignoring the early 2020 no-covid period, 2021, largely vaxxed, tracks higher most of the time and is on the increase right now. You just can’t see any success of the vaccines in there, in my humble opinion.

  172. jim2 says:

    rhoda – The 2021 line started just before the January peak of deaths from covid, before the vaccine had a chance to make a mark. Most of the 2021 excess deaths were booked the first three months of the year. It took months to get a significant number of people vaccinated, so the 2021 excess death chart doesn’t tell you much about the efficacy of the vaccine to prevent deaths.


  173. cdquarles says:

    A major problem here is that most, if not all, of the numbers from most, if not all, of the reporting agencies are suspect in at least one, if not more, ways. The uncertainty here is way too high to make reasonably sound judgments. Politics is the driver here, and it is likely best, overall, to be cautious. Yes, one can be too cautious. You can be too aggressive in risk taking, too. Politics is making finding a reasonably sound middle ground nigh on impossible. So much historical knowledge is being shunted aside for political purposes. It is enemy action.

  174. rhoda klapp says:

    Jim, if the excess deaths in the last few weeks on the chart are running higher than 2020, there is something that is not going as well as the official narrative would claim. That’s all I get from the chart, and we will see…

    I don’t mind “Cherry Picked” biased articles.


    It presents the other side with emphasis. We’ve already got way over the top emphasis the other way with flat out Lying For Effect, so a bit of balance against that is just fine with me. I generally dig into articles enough to find their bias anyway and that lets me sort of “Tote Up” a score between the two biases.

    Essentially I think of it like a court room. I expect both lawyers to only cherry pick and present their biased case for their side; but I also expect me to sort them appropriately…

    @CDQuarles: What you said!

    With so much crap data and munged definitions we are making decisions in a void in many cases. Just the FACT that you are counted as UN-Vaxxed until 2 weeks after the 2nd dose? Criminal in terms of fact finding Vexxine Side Effects.

    Lying about the actual “Pandemic Of The Newly Vexxed” by calling it a pandemic of the unvaccinated.

    So, IMHO, most of what we get that’s worthwhile comes from other countries and mass effects. Observations that can NOT be hidden. In particular: Gibraltar & Israel. Both nearly 100% injected and largely boosted too. BOTH with new big outbreaks. The clear conclusion is that the “vaccine” does not stop getting nor spreading the virus; therefor it is NOT a vaccine. It is at best a mRNA based therapy for reducing severity of symptoms on the FIRST time you get infected. (Data on the 2nd time looking sketchy but pointing at mild – so far – antibody dependent enhancement and worse outcomes). Then India: States using Ivermectin are doing GREAT. The one forbidding it and massively vaccinated having most of the cases in India.

    Those are immutable information and have clear conclusions. Getting lost in the crap statistics sand traps not so much…


    “appears to be a potential mutagen”?!

    I don’t see a way it can NOT be a significant mutagen. It substitutes into the genetic replication process CRAP that breaks it. Viruses use OUR MACHINERY so it pretty much must get inserted into our genetic replication as well. (Even if they have some incredibly trick way of blocking that, there will be a significant number of humans with variations in the process where that will likely fail to block the breakage.)

    Frankly, I’d not go near that process / stuff without a few GENERATIONS of data and evidence that it didn’t screw up 2nd or 3rd generation. (This is usually done with animal studies and I’d not want anything more distant from us than Monkeys as the definitive trial. Figure about 15 years… Or about 45 if you use Chimps.)

    To me, everything from the mRNA vexxines to this “drug” are based on a flawed belief that we (i.e. they) know enough about the genetic machinery in FULL DETAIL and IN EVERYONE to not do anything in error. Hubris. That’s why we do long testing including teratogenic testing to see if we are screwing up the next generation.

    Gibralter’s has got zero deaths right now … it’s deaths where the difference is …


  179. rhoda klapp says:

    Anote on excess deaths in the UK in the first week of October.

    “There are excess deaths from all causes in the most recent week, compared to that five-year average, in all four UK countries. The England and Wales figure has been showing excess deaths for 13 weeks in a row now, since the beginning of July, and it’s still not entirely clear what is causing all those deaths. It’s certainly not just Covid-19, because the number of excess deaths each week has been greater than the number of deaths where Covid-19 is mentioned on the death certificate for all but one of those 13 weeks, the exception being the week including the August bank holiday when registrations were affected by the holiday. For the most recent week, there were 350 excess deaths that did not directly involve Covid-19.””

    Excess deaths are stubbornly high, although not necessarily covid deaths. Vaccine deaths? This source dare not suggest it. Deaths from the health care provision being totally concentrated on covid? Possibly.

  180. YMMV says:

    ““appears to be a potential mutagen”?! That was jim2 speaking, and scientifically speaking, that is a correct phrasing. However …

    “I don’t see a way it can NOT be a significant mutagen.”

    I agree with this. No explanation has been offered that I have seen why this chemical would not interfere with ALL the body’s processes. How could it be targeted specifically to viruses? The fact that it was rejected earlier should be a clue.

    Are hubris and humility archaic forgotten words?

  181. cdquarles says:

    A few things: 1. Dose small enough to minimize adverse effects on human nucleus/nucleolus processes. That’s going to be very small. 2. Teasing it out. General chemical processes are and have to deal with mutagenic effects that are already happening; with or without this particular chemical. 3. Binding specificity, though as mentioned, within group variation will obviously put some at risk. This is already acknowledged by recommendations to not take a medicine or a similar medicine if you have had an adverse reaction previously and/or share characteristics with others who have had adverse reactions previously to one or more of the components, which does not have to be the active ingredient, either.

    About hubris and humility, it appears to some, that those words only apply to the other guy, not to them.

  182. E.M.Smith says:


    Zero deaths? Or zero attributed to Covid & Jab but mysteriously higher than usual?

    We’ve got an excess deaths problem starting to manifest if a few highly vaccinated countries.

    Yes, some of that will be “drunk to death” and / or suicide among teens who find lockdown with parents intolerable. But does it matter why they died? It still indicates “this ain’t working”.

    IMHO all you can use is as a statistic is Total Deaths vs Prior Years. Between “twice jabbed” counting as unvaccinated and motorcycle accident being Covid when that was convenient, and CVT / Portal Vein Thrombosis / auto immune crisis / heart failure post jab all being counted as non-vaccine deaths to various degrees when that is convenient instead; any claim that a particular death rate is all not Covid or Jab related is seriously lacking in support.

    It gets into the blood within days of vax, accumulates in spleen, brain, bone marrow, liver, adrenal glands, with high concentrations in ovaries.
    Spike protein is a pathogenic toxin that causes damage if in circulation, binds to platelets, epithelial cells of blood vessels, clotting, bleeding, heart problems, brain blood clotting.”

    I consider that fairly systemic. And the adverse reactions indicate this as well as many doctors nurses, senior care staff, funeral directors, and especially the very limited autopsies. ( we have all read these)

    I thought your may objection was to any claim that the body continues to produce spike proteins beyond nine days at the outside.

  191. E.M.Smith says:


    I presume you are as able as me to type “Gibraltar deaths” or “Gibraltar deaths by year” or “Gibraltar excess deaths”. But whatever.

    FWIW, I was not making a specific assertion about Gibraltar, but about heavily vaxxinated countries in general. However, Gibraltar is still instructive:

    These folks were being a pill about copy / paste so I had to do a screen cap / GIMP edit. This isn’t a “cherry pick” it is what fit on my screen. Prior years are remarkably similar:


    Unfortunately, it only goes up to January when they had started their vaccine rollout in earnest. But note that 20-30 is about the norm. Dec 2020, mid pandemic onset, 17. Just after vaccination gets going gangbusters? 89.


    Ever since the epidemic began, sorting genuine Covid deaths from others has been a major issue. Now we have the added problem of vaccines in the mix. At this moment the UK allegedly has its highest daily “Covid death” rate ever. Even higher than the “First Wave,” in spite of the substantial degree of herd immunity that has inevitably accrued since the beginning. This atypical “Second Wave” coincides with the vaccine roll-out. Are the two connected?

    Gibraltar, normally called simply “Gib,” provides a very clear picture. This tiny British Colony, barely three miles long, appended to the South coast of Spain, has only 32,000 residents. It had suffered little from the epidemic before the 9th January this year. The death rate was low, and Gib was way down the Deaths per Million League Table. This was not due to isolation; Spanish workers have continued to pour into Gib every morning, and back out every evening. Months ago, I asked a local what could account for this delightfully low death rate. His answer was “We all know each other. They can’t lie about why people have died!”

    Since the 9th of January Gibraltar “Covid deaths” per million have rocketed to Top Place
    on the Worldometer site. Until that date, Worldometer showed just 11 deaths in Gib for the whole of the epidemic period. Since the 10th, when vaccinations began, there have been a further 72 deaths in only five weeks. Fifty of these deaths occurred in the first fortnight of the vaccination period, when the old and most vulnerable were receiving the vaccine. No other jurisdiction has ever suffered such a massive and sudden change of fortune. What changed on the Ninth? The RAF flew in nearly 6,000 Pfizer vaccines, cooled to -70C by dry ice. They were put to use quickly to avoid the risk of degradation. Two further flights have arrived since. This means that Gibraltar also now tops the World league table for the proportion of the population vaccinated, at around 30%.

    Gibraltar actually now tops three World Tables: Death Rate, vaccination rate, and speed of vaccine roll-out. Hence the relationship between vaccine roll-out and death is clearer than anywhere else on the Planet. Local media and Government only talk of “coincidence” or a resurgence of Covid that “coincided” with the vaccines. If someone dies after a positive Covid test, of course, it is always Covid, not coincidence. It is therefore easy to dismiss the coincidence explanation here; the double standard is simply too obvious. What about a resurgence of Covid itself?

    It turns out the resurgence explanation is also easily disproved, by what happened in the town of La Linea de la Concepcion. Though separated by an international border, Gibraltar and La Linea are very much just one town. One might almost call Gibraltar La Linea’s business hub. Every day thousands of Spanish workers pour across the Frontier, their wages being essential to the economic well-being of the town. Any infection raging in Gibraltar would surely infect La Linea in a similar way. La Linea has double the population, so we might expect to see some 100 “Covid deaths” there in the first catastrophic fortnight of the Gib vaccines.

    A trawl through the Spanish media proves very interesting. All the news there was only about increasing “cases”, with little mention of deaths. Especially interesting is a typical report in La Opinion de Malaga. It has an “Andalusian map with the incidence rate of the last 14 days.” Deaths are also shown in the tables, and again on the map, which is interactive, for each individual municipality. One has only to click La Linea on the map to see that it had 656 confirmed cases in the previous week, and a figure of 43 deaths. That seems straightforward, but the Spanish Press is doing it’s own bit of obfuscation. That figure refers to ALL DEATHS since the epidemic began, not just the last two weeks. Making reasonable adjustments to the available data (see below) we find that Gibraltarian death rate is about twenty times higher. The evidence is, therefore, quite clear that the massive rise in Gibraltar deaths is a result of the vaccine.

    Gibraltar: 100% Vaccinated – Corona Incidence is Going Through the Roof
    July 26, 2021 TLB Staff GOVERNMENT, HEALTH, Tyranny 5

    ER Editor: We remind readers of articles we’ve published about Covid and vaccine uptake in Gibraltar, between January and April 2021. See the following:

    Gibraltar Deaths & the COVID-19 Vaccine … A Plea for Help!

    53 Dead in Gibraltar in 10 Days After Experimental Pfizer mRNA COVID Injections Started

    What Connection Does Gibraltar’s High Covid Death Rate Have With Vaccines?

    The Pfizer Massacre in Gibraltar

    Gibraltar hardly had any Covid cases during 2020, until they began mass vaccination at the very end of 2020, starting with almost 300 newly-vaccinated Spanish healthcare workers working on the island, who travel in daily from the Spanish mainland. Vaccination was started on the local population on January 10. Cases and deaths started to spike quickly.

    Gibraltar was sold in the media as a prime example of how wonderfully “normal” life could be if only every citizen dutifully picked up his vaccination: on the small peninsula with fewer than 34,000 inhabitants, a vaccination rate of 100% was actually achieved. In the meantime, however, it has become suspiciously quiet around the oh-so-successful country. This is hardly surprising, because the incidence in Gibraltar has exploded: it is currently well over 400.

    Data from Gibraltar already raised serious questions at the beginning of the year when, just in time for the start of the vaccination campaign in January, the previously low corona death rate in the country began to rise massively. Fact checkers financed by the pharmaceutical industry tried to deny any connection between the deaths and the vaccination – but, as usual, they could not provide any counter-evidence: The conclusion was simply that a causal connection was not officially confirmed. Of course, that means nothing – so far, every serious side effect of the Covid vaccine has been downplayed unrestrainedly, until sooner or later an official warning had to be issued.

    And now the numbers from Gibraltar are fueling all doubts about the meaning and purpose of the corona vaccinations. Most recently, a 7-day incidence of a whopping 489.8 was recorded – and the number of cases continues to rise. There are hardly any serious cases; however, this is not surprising, after all, Covid-19 is not dangerous for the majority of the population. Officials attribute the explosion in the number of cases despite vaccination to the delta variant, i.e. the variant because of which every adult (and every child) in this country is supposed to be forced to receive the supposedly protective vaccination.

    Other countries with high vaccination rates also have high case numbers
    Gibraltar is anything but an isolated case . For example, Report24 reported on the Seychelles as early as May : Their vaccination rate is considered exemplary worldwide – to this day the Seychelles have one of the highest vaccination rates in the world. At the same time, however, they also have one of the highest incidences with values ​​well over 500 .

    I cite the above as mostly a example of the vexxine NOT doing a thing to stop infections and in fact increasing them (most likely, IMHO, due to suppression of immunity post vaccination for most vaccines as the immune system is taking on the vaccine). The surge in deaths in January 2021 is a bit startling though.


    Around the world, medical authorities are seeing a spike in elderly deaths, after covid-19 vaccination. Gibraltar, a nation located at the southern tip of Spain, is suffering from an unexplained surge in elderly deaths. In the second week of January, a subset of the elderly population suddenly started to die off. The new wave of unexplained elderly deaths is occurring at nearly three times the magnitude of covid-19 deaths that were recorded during 2020.

    The new, unexplained surge in elderly deaths is occurring approximately forty times faster when compared to the overall timeline of covid-19 deaths that occurred since a pandemic was first declared. This surge in elderly deaths occurred after 5,847 doses of experimental mRNA injections were administered to the citizens of Gibraltar. In just one week, 17 percent of the country’s population had been inoculated with the first dose of Pfizer’s mRNA experiment.

    Before the vaccine experiment began, the covid-19 related death toll accounted for ten people. After the vaccine rollout, the total number of deaths had skyrocketed to forty-five people. In the first eight days of the vaccination program, thirty-five seniors suddenly passed away.

    After the first week of vaccination, Chief Minister Fabian Picardo said, “This is now the worst loss of life of Gibraltarians in over 100 years. Even in war, we have never lost so many in such a short time.”

    Thus my assertion that TOTAL deaths is what you must look at.

    ​Marlene Hassan abstains from voting on Budget – asks why Gibraltar suffered so many Covid deaths compared to La Linea

    Marlene Hassan Nahon abstained from voting on this Budget, citing the Government’s lack of transparency and accountability.

    The Together Gibraltar Leader said the lack of proper democratic checks and balances make our democracy a very flawed one, in desperate need of reform.

    And she said the Chief Minister appears to be on a different planet, claiming his assessments on the important issues of the day are far from realistic. She said it is important to understand why – per capita – Gibraltar suffered twice as many Covid deaths as La Linea and Algeciras.

    As we’ve already seen, La Linea is smack up against Gibraltar and folks move between the two towns often.

    Marlene Hassan Nahon reflected on 94 lives lost to Covid and a total number of over 4600 cases: a proportion of cases and deaths in our Elderly residential services that – she said – far outnumbered even the countries worst hit by the pandemic.

    so up to 94 dead attributed to Covid when a normal monthly rate is 20 to 30 range.

    Oddly, I’ve not been able (so far) to find newer absolute death data. Public Health Gibraltar is just saying nobody is dying from Covid or the vaccine (hard to believe that at all. Someone ought to have had a clot issue based on the known side effects) and not found another source.


    From Sept 15th, but looks like quoting older data, from a paper we’ve seen before I think:

    Gibraltar has 100% Covid Vaccination with 5th Highest Covid Mortality Rate in the World

    Gibraltar has vaccinated its entire population with all required vaccination doses for Covid. (1)

    However, there are 2,880 deaths per million people in that country.

    It is in fifth place behind Peru, Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina and North Macedonia for total deaths per million population. (2)

    The world has vaccinated 28% of its population with both doses of the covid vaccine, averaging 590 covid deaths per million people.

    Despite the vaccination of its entire population, Gibraltar has 4.88 times more deaths per million people than the world average.

    Moreover, 30 additional countries have inoculated over 50% of their population with both covid vaccinations.

    All these countries have a worsening in deaths per million people compared to the world average.

    The mean percentage of fully vaccinated individuals was 63 ± 2.3%, Standard Error of the Mean (SEM).

    The average number of deaths per million people were 1,568 ± 111 (SEM).

    The average ratio compared to the world average for these countries was 2.65 ± 0.18 (SEM).

    The increased death rates range from 1.20 times for Canada to 5.29 times for Hungary. ( 3)

    There was no protective effect observed with covid vaccinations but a worsening in survival for all these countries.

    US Covid-19 vaccines proved to cause more harm than good based on pivotal trial data analyzed using the proper scientific endpoint “All Cause Severe Morbidity.”

    Dr J Classen analyzed three covid vaccines released under Emergency Use Authorization using “All-Cause Severe Morbidity” as the primary endpoint.

    The scientific clinical trial endpoint “all-cause severe morbidity” was obtained by combining all severe and or life-threatening events, both infections, occurring in the vaccinated and placebo groups respectively.

    He found that the Moderna immunized group ( n=15,210) had 3,042 more total severe events than the control group ( n=15,210),(p=0.00001).

    The Pfizer immunized group (n=21,720) had 90 more total severe events than the control group ( n=21,728),( p=0.000014).

    The Jansen immunized group (n=19,630) had 264 more total severe events (n=19,691),(p=0.00001).

    The author concluded that there is no scientific evidence that the Covid-19 vaccines improved the health of the individual or the population as a whole.

    He felt that ” mass immunization with Covid-19 vaccines is certainly leading to a catastrophic public health event.”

    Harvard Medical School professor Martin Kulldorff emphasised research had established that natural immunity offered exponentially more protection than vaccines.

    Moreover, SARS-CoV-2-naïve vaccinees had a 13.06-fold (95% CI, 8.08 to 21.11) increased risk for breakthrough infection with the Delta variant compared to those previously infected, when the first event (infection or vaccination) occurred during January and February of 2021.

    The increased risk was also significant for symptomatic disease. (P<0.001). (5,6)

    Eventually you run out of vulnerable folks so I’d expect the biggest deaths to be at the time of vaccination and that seems to be the case. After you kill off a load of “70+ with co-morbidities” it takes a while to grow a new crop.

    I’d love to see the 2021 all months to date deaths, but so far my “Search Foo” is not pulling it up.

    What is absolutely clear is that they were doing FINE, then did a rapid and massive Jab Campaign, and had more old folks die off faster by a huge margin. The excess deaths in the month post vaccine campaign start day are staggering for a country that small.

    Strange how Uttar Pradesh and other India providences have had incredible success breaking the back of the RO for Covid and driven test positivity rates from 20 percent and higher to 0.1 and lower. And yet nobody is talking about their complete success and the simple logical way it was done; simple contact tracing and distributing Ivermectin Zinc and vitamin D to the tested positive person, their family and close associates.
    Done deal, Covid broken, done, a non issue. And all achieved with very low vaccine rates.

    And WHO helped distribute these medical kits! Where is the pushback. To continue vaccines in these areas is criminal. Fortunately vaccinated rates are slowly increasing and are about 20 percent. But almost zero are talking about this or using it as a model, or studying the process and testing it etc…. Congress, even conservative Congress, is completely silent. ALL SUCCESSFUL protocols are ignored. IMV anyone trusting ANY data controlled by the same evil people that are suppressing ALL good protocols and any prophylactic treatments is being naive and foolish.

    Jim, one comment about the supposed initial success of the jabs. They began on the downside of a wave when more people had natural immunity and more vulnerable elderly had already died. I recommend a close reading of the “ No Tricks” study referenced, as the data indicates vaccines are useless and worse when all cause morbidity and mortality is tracked. And this despite the horrible tracking done and six week period of mislabeling Covid deaths, and adverse events ( which are generally suppressed and ignored) The downside to the wave in January was no different then prior waves. And yes, the all cause mortality is a major problem. With the most vulnerable already dead from Covid, very high vaccine rates, and increased natural immunity this should NOT be happening, and the death rate is one more nail in the coffin of vaccine failure. And it is not, in my view, hyperbole to call such failures criminal, homicidal or democidal.

    Here is the No Tricks post…

    Jim2 – I’m not doubting that you’re trying to find the truth in all this, and you’ve put up a fair number of papers and info here. Trouble is, I’m finding too much to distrust in the data that’s available. See Dr. Kendrick at https://drmalcolmkendrick.org/2021/09/03/i-have-not-been-silenced/ (and of course his other posts) where he specifically says “I am not sure I can find the truth. I do not know if it can be found anymore. Today I am unsure what represents a fact, and what has simply been made up. A sad and scary state of affairs.”

    After all, you can’t trust the “unvaccinated” status, since that includes people who are within 2 weeks after their second vaccination. All sorts of ways to bugger the data. You can’t trust the “cases” status either, since they could be using a cycle count between 25 and 42 and it’s not published (and different for “unvaccinated” and “vaccinated”). About the only thing you can really be certain of is how many people actually died (from the undertakers records), and too many are dying. The hospital deaths number may not be as reliable….

    As such, I think the report from (IIRC) March 2020 in Spain showing full recovery of people in the old-folks home using pretty standard medicines (Azithromycin, Zinc, etc.) as being important. Early treatment is critical. Also obvious from the Uttar Pradesh figures. The in-vitro work from Monash early on also showed that IVM stops replication of the virus (as do a fair number of other medicines and herbs) but with IVM we also have a long record of safety. Looks like it will be useful for some varieties of ‘flu, too.

    The whole thing looks like a fustercluck. It could have been a minor hiccup if treated correctly, but instead it’s caused major economic damage and continues to cause great damage. Failures in strategy all the way, and why was everyone choosing those strategies when pretty early on the information was available?

    As regards cui bono, looks to me that the CCP is the big winner (though not of course the Chinese people). Coincidentally, they’re flying jets over Taiwan and saying they’re going to reunite China, while the USA and the West are distracted and unlikely to stop it.

  204. jim2 says:

    SD – I don’t trust the data when it comes to adverse reactions to the vaccinations, the number hospitalized or deaths vis-à-vis vaccinated or not vaccinated. That’s why I was focused on excess deaths, even though that is a courser measurement.

    I like journal papers when available, but I also like boots-on-the-ground accounts from physicians and nurses concerning treatments that work. I’m pro-ivermectin and I think there are adverse reactions from the vaccine that never get reported. I won’t be taking the new anti-viral, RNA-trashing pill, either.

    I don’t turn to sources that present hyperbole or un-sourced FUD. I think lies or exaggerations just cloud the water, no matter from what camp.

    A week ago, I watched the MNF game as I run a Fantasy League and headed in after the game end. Probably midnight. I should add, watched it in the garage mancave. Son, went to bed and forgot to take out the trash and recycling per normal, so I stepped up and did it for him. As part of the intervention, I placed my Lenovo (black) laptop on top of the wife’s ride that has a black glass top. Did things accordingly, but neglected to retrieve the laptop and place it in it’s place. Woke up the next morning and the wife is gone, and so was my laptop on her roof. It appears to have made it to the on ramp to I75 in the construction zone one an overpass, where she said she heard banging on the roof she thought was from the merging truck traffic, but is wasn’t.

    Upon the search with the big reflective vest in the area, don’t do it in a highway construction zone, nothing was found.

    David A – sorry, I didn’t save links for that data. IIRC the CDC put out a directive that PCR tests on vaccinated people should be limited to 28 cycles. I have also seen cycle counts up to 42 used earlier in the pandemic (here in France as well as many other countries). However, the cycle counts problem has generally been kept pretty quiet despite being pretty central to the question “is this person infected and/or infectious?”. I think that CDC directive was mentioned here on this blog, as well as the upper limit used beforehand. Finding it again could take a while, though.

  219. David A says:

    This is a very thoughtful peer reviewed study on the vaccines and potential issues. I learned a lot, and many here will gain far more.


    My very layman summary is Covid-19 spike proteins have an very strong affinity to many human proteins, thus the dozens of disease manifestations that Covid is often cause to that can, even if the initial reaction is low or non-symptomatic, possibly result in a plethora of severe diseases weeks to several years later. Unfortunately the spike protein in the vaccine can potentially manifest most all the same harms, and bypasses the initial defense mechanisms via injection.

    Also the chances of a novel vaccine getting past stage 3 trials is only two percent. ( There are so many “firsts” with this vaccine that it had, in my view, a far less then 2 percent chance of success)

    As one small example from the paper…

    Many who test positive for COVID 19 express no symptoms. The number of asymptomatic, PCR positive cases varies widely between studies, from a low of 1.6% to a high of 56.5% (Gao et. al.,
    Those who are insensitive to COVID 19 probably have a very strong innate immune system. The healthy mucosal barrier’s neutrophils and macrophages rapidly clear the viruses, often without the need for any antibodies to be produced by the adaptive system.

    However, the vaccine intentionally completely bypasses the mucosal
    immune system, both through its injection past the
    natural mucosal barriers and its artificial configuration as an RNA containing nanoparticle. As noted in Carsetti (2020), those with a strong innate immune response almost universally experience either
    asymptomatic infection or only mild COVID 19 disease presentation.

    Nevertheless, they might face
    chronic autoimmune disease, as described previously, as a consequence of excessive antibody production in response to the vaccine, which was not necessary in the first place. “

    There is far more to read on this paper, and unfortunately numerous studies, ( like the French ADE link just above) hospital employee reports, doctors reports, immunology expert reports, adverse event reports, excess mortality study reports and vaccine failure statistics reflect that all of the concerns in this informative paper are likely manifesting in the real world.

    My very layman summary is Covid-19 spike proteins have an very strong affinity to many human proteins, thus the dozens of disease manifestations that Covid is often cause to that can, even if the initial reaction is low or non-symptomatic, possibly result in a plethora of severe diseases weeks to several years later.

    We thought the virus killed people, so we made a vaccine based on the spike protein, which we thought was just something the virus used to get in. Now we know that the spike protein itself can be dangerous. And I think we know that the worst way the virus kills is to trigger an over-reaction in the body. The cytokine storm.

    Russian researchers have found a new drug to combat the cytokine storm.

    Leitragin can prevent or reduce complications that occur after infection. The Federal Biomedical Agency (FMBA) noted that it is the first and so far the only delta-opioid receptor agonist in the world to enter practical medicine.

    Scientists from the FMBA Research Center for Biomedical Technologies have determined that the drug under the original name “Dalargin” has a positive effect on tissue healing and regeneration.

    The researchers added that substances of this class were actively involved in the formation of an immune response, and can also prevent or mitigate a cytokine storm. This is a condition in which pro-inflammatory substances are actively released, which leads to the development of serious respiratory and general systemic disorders in patients infected with the new coronavirus.

    source: https://russkiymir.ru/en/news/275899/

    Laitragin is the first drug that aims to prevent and fight the cytokine storm caused by Covid-19 in the body.

    The Russian Ministry of Health has registered the drug “Leitragin” for the prevention and treatment of pneumonia caused by coronavirus infection, the Russian Agency for Medicine and Biology announced today through its website.

    The spray drug Leitragin, developed by the Agency for Medicine and Biology, is registered with the Russian Ministry of Health. It is intended for the prevention and treatment of pneumonia. “The aim is to prevent pneumonia, which is one of the complications of the coronavirus,” the agency’s website said.

    source: https://www.slobodenpecat.mk/en/rusija-go-registrirashe-lekot-vo-sprej-lajtragin-protiv-kovid-19/

    The Russian scientists had tasked themselves with finding a substance that would act as an ‘off switch’ for the chain reaction that, after being triggered by the invading SARS-CoV-2 virus, actually causes potential organ failure and death. This reaction of the immune system, dubbed the “cytokine storm,” has been variously described as our body’s overreaction to the virus or a “suicide attack” against the invading pathogen, and even as an evolutionary mechanism to stop the spread of deadly infections with the death of the host.


    Currently, medics do not have many options in their fight against the cytokine storm. They have to either use monoclonal antibodies – highly expensive drugs capable of suppressing a single type of cytokine – or “kill” the immune system completely with steroid anti-inflammatory drugs. Both methods have serious drawbacks.

    The FBMA center’s research showed that suppressing the oft-targeted cytokines might not always provide the required effect as the “storm” could continue raging after a brief respite, Karkishenko said. Skulachev, meanwhile, notes that using hormonal steroid drugs could be even more dangerous.

    “We cannot live without the immune system. If a person has been suffering from a severe viral infection, one has to be meticulous in choosing a moment for administering the drug. Do it a few hours too early and a virus would kill a person through self-replication,” he said.

    In their search for a solution, the FMBA researchers tried an opioid hexapeptide called [D-Ala2]-dynorphin 1-6, and the results turned out to be surprisingly promising. Mortality rates among mice with chemically induced conditions similar to cytokine storms in humans fell by four times, Karkishenko said. Noting that Western scientists seem to be focused on opioids as components of painkiller drugs, he adds that these substances are much more multi-faceted, and can also be harmless.

    “In our article, we were able to prove that opioid receptors trigger processes with a massive anti-inflammatory effect while causing no damage to a person,” Karkischenko said.

    @Another Ian:

    That link per the China Shipping and California smog laws causing the problem
    is OK here, but it was covered here:
    so would fit better there.

    (This comment links the two so later, someone reading the logistics article can follow the chain back to the comment here).

    The article you cite doesn’t mention one small point:

    It isn’t just the big 18 wheelers. It is also all the little local delivery trucks from warehouses to stores. So to the extent containers do leave the docs to a warehouse, there’s also a shortage of trucks to transport from warehouse to retailers.

    Plus, you can not bring in “non-CARB Compliant” trucks from out of State. They simply are not allowed to enter AT ALL. Out of State trucks that ARE Compliant still have an administrative barrier in that they must get a CARB compliance check and sign-off PLUS keep a load of new records for CARB. A lot of out of State truckers will just say “Screw it” and not bother.

    Note, too, that the CRANES on the docks as well as the Lift Trucks (fork lifts) and on dock drayage gear (from specialized trucks to mini-trains if used) ALL must be 2010 or newer engines too. How much of that gear got converted in time vs how much is in parts waiting for new engines to be installed? Are they waiting for parts from China to build this sudden surge of demand for new replacement engines? Or did someone just say “Sell that lift truck out of State and whenever demand picks up we can buy a new one”… and now they can’t as the new ones are all sold out?

    It’s a (as someone here put it) FusterCluck foisted on shipping by the Dimocrats running Sacramento.

  231. another ian says:

    I haven’t seen an answer – any idea on how long to get a new engine out of that supply kerfuffle?

  232. E.M.Smith says:

    It is a logistics nightmare (to the extent they are short of engines) as the engine itself may not be the problem (being shipped). It’s the old “For want of a nail” thing.

    Right Now, you can’t get Chevy Pickups with a particular engine as the Engine Management Computer needs a particular computer chip out of Taiwan or China that is not available. You can build the whole damn truck, but it can’t be sold. This semiconductor shortage has hit all sorts of vehicles globally.

    Now consider the sudden addition of demand for “just the new engine, please”. If you are a truck / engine builder and have a choice of selling a NEW $200,000 truck or a $20,000 “crate engine”, which one gets that EMC Unit? Will Peterbuilt or Kenworth pay more for that engine than a guy looking at a 2009 unit rebuild / engine swap? So what happens is the guy with the Old Truck just can’t comply. Which means that as of NOW he can not register and operate his truck. He is out of business. (Which also means not a lot of money for that crate engine…)

    On Craig’s List for 26,000 GVWR and a couple of Tractor Rigs I’ve seen ads saying “For Sale” at good prices with a note “must be registered out of State”. Some didn’t have that in the ad, but on calling and asking was told that. So I can say from personal exposure that there’s a lot of trucks just “off line” and NOT going to be engine upgraded. Only good for leaving the State.

    Which puts us back in the New Truck market where there’s supply chain issues AND the “little guy” running older equipment just is not able to buy a new $1/4 Million new tractor rig. So no new truck shows up.

    Essentially: You can NOT put a 50% deficit into the middle of the trucking market and expect it to work out in any period short of many years, if at all. Yet by banning any truck with an engine over 10 years old, when the equipment design life is 20 years+, that is exactly what California has done.

    Welcome to the Green New Hell.

    Oh, and one other minor note:

    Specs change over time. I have no idea if a 20 or 30 year old Crane or dock drayage flat hauler has the same bolt patterns, engine compartment space, wiring harness, etc. to even get a compatible engine to install. It is an ASSUMPTION that there can even be an engine bought to install, at all. I’ve looked at engine retrofits of just about 5 years difference in my Mercedes and was informed by my mechanic that the wiring harness and some other bits of linkage made that a nightmare from hell. I could do it, maybe, with the application of a load of money, maybe, and a lot of custom work.

    Were I an owner / operator or a dock facility looking at this, my approach would have been to take the simplest path with the lowest costs. That would be “Sell out of State during the pandemic shutdown, on the used equipment market” followed by “Buy new equipment when demand returned and cash flow supported the buy”. That is, the Law expected folks to change a lot of engines. The economics said “Cut capacity by 50% and buy new when profits support that.”

    Also note: Any “Refer” units coming in from Overseas to California also must now be CARB compliant for their refrigeration. That means “new units only” in practice. Even if the unit it just going to transit to Arizona and points beyond. So expect a big shortage of refer units bringing goods into California Ports as there just are not enough new ones to support the demand. So that Frozen Fish processed in China? Forget it.

    @ YMMV
    cytokine storm, blood issues, pneumonia etc are certainly the most common initial deadly reaction. However there are dozens of other potential and manifesting long Covid and likely long vaccine issues. Likely to review these the best source, despite their poor understanding of the US and all things Trumpian, is this publication of the literature…


    Just go through the most recent two dozen headings and it becomes clear that while Covid 19 has for many, an initial fatality number similar to a bad flu year, it is very likely a long term killer. Unfortunately the vaccine is as well in that the damage is quite likely multi faceted and will take years to sort put, and fails to protect from Covid. ( there was good reason Novel vaccines take 12 years to be developed. ). It appears that Covid 19, a likely gain of function man made virus, was well constructed to attach the human body in dozens of ways. BTW, Ivermectin may be the best defense against Long Covid as well.

    From the vaccine paper link…
    “ International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research2(1), May 10, 2021 Page | 56Autophagy is essential for clearing damaged proteins, organelles, and bacterial and viral pathogens. Alterations in autophagy pathways are emerging as a hallmark of the pathogenesis of many respiratory viruses, including influenza virus, MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV and, importantly, SARS-CoV-2 (Limanaqi et al., 2020). Autophagy is surely critical in the clearance of spike protein produced by immune cells programmed to produce it through the mRNA vaccines. One can speculate that impaired autophagy prevents clearance of the spike protein produced by macrophages from the vaccine mRNA. As we will show later, platelets possess autophagic proteins and use autophagy to clear viruses. Impaired autophagy is a characteristic feature of ITP, and it may be key to the autoimmune attack on the platelets (Wang et al., 2019

    @jim2 – “They” (the Chicago power bloc with Obama as front man) don’t care what Zho Baidan’s ratings are.

    He was selected and installed as the perfect foil to advance the globalist/socialist agenda. He’ll read whatever is put in front of him. He’ll sign anything put in front of him. You don’t even have to blackmail him to get it done. Just make sure “The Big Guy” gets his 10% because that’s about all he remembers now. (And he probably doesn’t have to get the 10%. They may only just tell him he’s getting it.🤷‍♂️)

    Whatever he says or is signing doesn’t even register with him. He has no clue if what he is doing is right or wrong or good or bad.

    His ratings in the very next poll could be 20% and for any issue that nobody likes, his poll numbers could be 5% (always some idiots!) and the agenda would still be pushed through.

    The fact that he is an idiot with dementia causes only one problem and that’s to make the YSM’s job covering for him more difficult. Thus the walk offs without answering questions or the mic-k!lls when he starts to wander into “DON’T SAY THAT, JOE!” territory.

    They thought Kamala would be the perfect brainless idiot to slide into Joe’s place, but I’m beginning to think she was a serious miscalculation. She doesn’t have dementia and goes off-script all too often. That and nobody, nobody including the brainwashed useful idiots, likes her.

Speaking about the past in science is easy, trace the famous discoveries. But those histories leave out most of the false paths (certainties at the time) because they were dead ends. Looking forward we do not have that option.

    One small victory …

    Beth Barts, a prominent left-wing member of the Loudoun County School Board, announced her resignation from her position in a Facebook post Friday.

    “Please accept this letter as my formal resignation from the Loudoun County School Board effective November 2, 2021,” Barts wrote on Facebook.

    In March, Barts was at the center of the recall effort to remove six school board members, who were accused of being part of an anti-racist Facebook group that allegedly created lists of parents who opposed Critical Race Theory (CRT) or who called for the reopening of schools for in-person learning.

    CRT holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches students to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. Its adherents pursue “antiracism” through the end of merit, objective truth and the adoption of race-based policies.

    Loudoun County residents again called for Barts’ job in an August petition, which accused her of violating state and local policies by holding illegal meetings through email and on Facebook groups, exposing confidential information from closed school board sessions and using her personal social media account to discuss official business in private Facebook groups.

    That’s one battle won in the War against Tyranny.

    People are waking up and starting to fight back. The “woke” are still fast asleep, though. Talk about your misnomer, ‘woke’ is #1 on the list.

    It’s people who are willing to be fired rather than take the jab, and people getting in the face of their COMMIE school boards, and private workplace unions that are saying “Hell NO!” that may allow us to squeak by without testing the limits of the 2nd Amendment.

    I do believe that if a few prominent politicians have a Mussolini Moment Come To Jesus revelation via a choice of eternal harp music, we might just start swinging the pendulum back towards political and cultural sanity.

    But… Big Butt… Marxists aren’t known for giving up their thoroughly corrupt and evil ideology willingly. So French haircuts may become necessary.

    One pop-up ad I used to love was for a t-shirt company. They had a cute chick in a tank top with an admittedly funny, clever saying as click bait. Get the people who liked the chick. Get the people who liked the saying.

    My favorite t-shirt of theirs was for D.A.D.D.s; Dads Against Daughters Dating.

    Under the D.A.D.D.s acronym was the line, “Shoot the first one and word will get out.”

    That one always cracked me up. It’s probably also a useful philosophy to adopt for causing leftist/commie/liberal/regressive/Marxist/ loonies to reconsider their position. Nothing else seems to work.

    BTW, Mussolini never did return to his wicked ways after the Italians gave him his own “Come to Jesus” moment on a nearby lamp post. I’d say the Italians hit on an effective solution to discourage the ‘bossiness’ tendency in elected leaders.

    I was doing a little thinking on the topic of vaccine passports and the pressures that will be brought to bear if you don’t get the jab. Then there is also the pressure they can bring to bear on those who have vaccine passports. “Do what we demand or we’ll revoke your vaccine passport.”

    I don’t know how many others are in my situation, but Mrs. H.R. is vaxxed. So I can be “cut off from buying or selling without the mark of the Beast.” All that means is that she will have to do all of the shopping, and if we want something from a restaurant, it will have to be takeaway and not sit-down dining.

    I’m not sure what the implications are for my retirement stash, but then the GEBs and D.C. pollies have been scheming for quite a while now to get everyone’s retirement funds. I don’t think vaxx status will come into play when they make that money grab.

    Travel will certainly be affected. The worst case is State border checkpoints, and as E.M. has gamed out, there just aren’t enough people to cover all the roads that cross State lines. I guess I won’t be flying anywhere in the near future.

    My son and daughter-in-law are vaxxed, too. They travel in and out of country on business and figured they would need the jab at some point, even if it’s for another country and not the U.S. So the kids are another resource for me to keep getting whatever I need.

    Between mixed-vaxx couples and families and the inevitable black market that will arise if vaxx passports are required for commerce, I’m not sure how many people will be completely shut out of getting food, shelter, and clothing. And with the labor shortage, I can see the un-vaxxed trading work for food or items that they need. “I need food. You can’t get anyone to clean your gutters. Let’s talk.”

    In the end, I think that the vaxx passports will just piss off everyone, vaxxed and unvaxxed, and people will find workarounds for whatever PITA barriers they encounter. Exhibit A: Prohibition in the 1930s.

    There will be some that make small fortunes from providing workarounds to those with no vaxxed family or friends. It’s always been that way.

    Someone should do challenge trials. Give subjects a known controlled dose and see how many get Covid.

    Further, the goal posts of herd immunity seems to be going over the horizon ahead of us.

    @H.R. ” Mussolini never did return to his wicked ways after the Italians gave him his own “Come to Jesus” moment on a nearby lamp post.”

    Like you, I do not advocate initiation of violence — but history is history, and it should be remembered. How about a tee shirt with a picture of a guillotine and a caption saying “And just like that, King Louis stopped oppressing the masses.” (Obviously a simplistic view of the French Revolution, but hey, it’s just a tee shirt.)

    The subject of violence deserves a word or two. More specifically the INITIATION of violence (and why it is unacceptable) deserves a comment. This is not only in reference to political violence, but social and personal violence as well. We have all heard people say “violence never solves anything!” The problem is they have it exactly wrong. Violence does indeed solve things. Someone won’t do what you wish? Force them. Beat them up. Want a new car? Steal it, drive away. pretty girl? Dark alley, upper body strength, problem solved. And so on and so on… In fact, violence solves so many things, so quickly, so easily, that once someone begins to use it, all other solutions fade to obscurity. And in almost every case those other non-violent solutions have MUCH better long term outcomes. Violence vs non-violence is just the limiting case of immediate consequences vs long term consequences. My concern is that as our society continues its shift from one with standards based on long term factors, to a society based on quick gratification and immediate considerations we see a larger and larger shift to violence as THE solution.

    Yes. We do not know in any general sand accurate sense (there are of course specific exceptions) who has had COVID, when they had it, or what the symptoms are. Not only is the PCR test not reliable, but some “cases” were officially counted WITHOUT even the PCR test. “Looks like it could be a virus. Let’s just call it COVID.”

    He also ended his personal subscription with SimpliSafe.

    “Cancelling works both ways, and to those companies that would bow down to the left-wing extremist activists who complain on Twitter: If you don’t support free speech – get out.

    I’m not interested at all.”

    The Post Millennial has been a frequent target of left-wing cancel campaigns, especially ones that are organized by Antifa, partly because their editor-in-chief – Andy Ngo – has been on the forefront of exposing the militant black-bloc group’s actions. The outlet is one of the only to report on Antifa honestly which subjects them to constant defamation online by radical activists.

The Sputnik vaccination may not be that good (and the Russian people obviously know that since they are refusing to take it in large numbers), but surely he’s not being driven by the WHO?

    So is Russia missing a chance to put two fingers up at the West? I’d figured on Putin as definitely not a friend of the West in general, but as someone who would put Russia first.

    @Per Fall of Civilizations:

    I’ve spent a lot more time looking into this than it deserves ( I hope…). I’ve come to the conclusion that there are only a very few things that matter to The Fall, and most of them are “happening now”.

    1) Climate Change. (No, not the bogus CO2 meme one, actual rapid changes of climate caused by nature). We have a 1400-ish year cycle and a 700-ish sub-cycle. It moves the rain bands. Folks dependent on rain for crops thrive and overpopulate when times are good, then when times go bad, die off or migrate away. Best recent example? Migration Era Pessimum (though I think Wiki has renamed it to something like “Roman evil white man invasion”…)

    2) Economic over-interdependence (or under-self-reliance) during times of sudden change / collapse of things on which you are dependent. (As in China right now flooding so not making things we need that we can’t get off the ships anyway…)

    3) War. This often is a consequence of #1 or #2 (or #2 caused by #1). It can also cause a dependence led collapse or crop failure collapse if initiated by egotistical GEBs in the absence of a natural physical cause. See Genghis Khan, Alexander The Great, Ceasars (several), Modern Neo-con / GEB / Military Industrial Complex / Bush / Clinton perpetual wars…

    4) Internal moral decay into collapse of the society. See ANY Communist Regime 30 to 50 years on. From the USSR to Mao and the Cultural Revolution ending 3000 years of culture, to Venezuela today, to Nazi Germany (yeah, I know, National Socialist, not full on Communist, but still Marxist), and Fascist Italy (also Socialist with their own nationalist bent, and the inventors of “3rd Way” Market Socialism). We see echos of this today in the Italian reputation for “indirect economics” to survive as everything from Roman Empire to Mafia and more come and go.

    There’s a whole lot of little bits that are subsequent to these, but that’s the big lumps. Things like buggering the money that usually happens mid to late stage moral decay. Loss of rule of law. Etc.

    But most of the time a moral and just society with local production and sound money survives indefinitely until either there is a catastrophic failure of farming from a weather shift, or some GEB runs an army over them.

In fact, all the victims represented within this platform took the Vaccine thinking they were doing the right thing within the fight against Covid-19. We are however pro informed-choice, pro consent, pro science and strongly anti-coercion.

She was a healthy, energetic girl, a good student, kind and social – but they haven’t seen that version of Maddie since she got the second Pfizer Vaccine. Within 24 hours she developed abdominal, muscle and nerve pain that became unbearable and, over the next two-and-a-half months, she was admitted to the hospital three times, each stay a little longer than the last. She developed additional symptoms including gastroparesis, nausea and vomiting, erratic blood pressure and heart rate, memory loss (she mixes up words), brain fog, headaches, dizziness, fainting (she fell and hit her head) and seizures. She developed verbal and motor tics, loss of feeling from the waist down, muscle weakness, drastic changes in her vision, urinary retention and loss of bladder control, severely irregular heavy menstrual cycles, and eventually she had to have a NG (feeding) tube put in to get nutrition. All of these symptoms are still here today, and some days are worse than others. Steph de Garay, Maddie’s Mother, says “There was nothing wrong with her. She was perfectly happy and now, whatever happened, it has changed her”. Nine months post Vaccine they are still living a nightmare with no support from the medical community.”

    Southwest Airlines caved and won’t be requiring the vaccine, and here is another small win. Maybe it will spread!

    Following a growing trend, several Ohio hospitals are allowing staff who have already recovered from COVID-19 infections to defer their mandated vaccines.

    Premier Health, Kettering Health and the Dayton Children’s Hospital networks have all set a December 1 deadline for workers to get vaccinated against COVID-19, and all three networks are now accepting proof of natural immunity as a reason to defer compliance. “Natural immunity” refers to testing positive for coronavirus-targeting antibodies following a COVID-19 infection.

    IIRC the percentage is about 10%. There were about 10% Nazis. There were about 10% Party Members in setting up the Soviet Union. The percent of colonists who were P.O.ed at King George was modest to start.

    There’s at least 10% (IMHO closer to 20%) already P.O.d about the “mandates” and I’m sure some fair number who “got the jab” have a P.O.d attitude about giving in, but were forced by circumstances. Then there will be the ever growing number who have “family & friends” with serious complications from The Jab over time.


    So far, spouse and I have had No Bad Thing with a simple and cheap prophylaxis of ivermectin, zinc, Vit-D. I’ve not limited my travels and exposures (and have done 2 or 3 cross country trips).

    Recently a Friend came out to take a Nostalgia Tour. Visiting old stomping grounds and Friends In California. He also visited some folks in the Mid-West and near Texas on his way back East.


    Just 2 days after leaving one couples place, they informed him they had Covid-19. A day after that, one day out from home, he starts to get symptoms. (He’s now been basically isolating in his bedroom and sleeping for a couple of days).

    But here’s the kicker: ALL Of them were “Vaccinated”…

    So just how is it a good thing to have taken all the risks and side effects of the vexxine and still end up sick in bed for days? Think that’s making him feel like it was just a great idea to take that path?

    (So Far they have modest symptoms and no hospitalization need, so some benefit, maybe…)

    But here’s the big kicker:

    It is likely had he been using Ivermectin he’d not be sick at all. Were he sick, using IVM would have most likely made symptoms about the same as now AND he’d have natural durable all-varieties immunity.

    Does anybody know if getting sick after taking the vexxine leaves you with natural immunity (as the capsule proteins are around) or does Original Antigenic Sin mean he’s at risk for life to “varieties”?

    Now ask yourself: How many folks, over time, as this worsens, will have a big load of Buyers Remorse over their choices? Over the coercion? As they see “Folks like me” having No Problems? Or worse, as they lose family members to the 2 shots of damage a year plan?

  315. E.M.Smith says:

    Oh, and on the “Black Market” size:

    IMHO it is much larger due to 2 things left out of that cited article:

    Giving stuff away. (A sort of social barter over time with hope of future kindness in return)

    DIY due to tax rates.

    On #1, I’ve given away about $1000 worth of stuff this year. Just not worth my time to try to sell it, but had life left in it. IF all folks did was to stop throwing out stuff that works and give it to someone who needs it, you get a big impact. Some of the folks I gave stuff to have given me stuff or services in return on other occasions, or might in the future.

    On #2: Present example is my DIY Move being more probable. As costs for hired movers rose A Lot (due to California Rules & Taxes) it became economical for me to DIY the move. A big chunk of that will be non-taxed now (my labor for one) and the biggest cost is a capital investment that’s not taxed at income rates and may be recoverable later anyway.

    I just did a BUNCH of yard work and junk removal myself. Why? Simple. To get $200 worth of work done, the labor needs to charge $400 as the Government will take about 1/2. For ME to get that $400, I need to earn about $800 as the Government will take about 1/2. So, IF he’s earning about $20 / hour net (barely surviving in Silly Con Valley), he has to charge about $40 and I need to earn at about $80 / hour. (Plus expenses of commuting, office clothes, meals out…)

    Guess what? I’m happy to mow lawns, pick up junk, cut down trees, etc. for $80 / hour of benefit untaxed to me.

    As tax revenues cross about 20% TOTAL that process starts to limit available tax REVENUES regardless of where the RATE is set. (Laffer Curve…) At about 50% Total Tax RATE (and 18% tax revenues) the economy overall starts to falter and a whole lot more DIY comes into play.

    It is my belief that the DIY kicks in first, then the “trade gifts with friends” and eventually you end up with the “grey market” and “black market” as governments try to block it more and the trade widens.

    Another example is that I can make a loaf of bread for about 25 ¢ but it sells for $3 in the store now. When it was $1 to $2 a loaf I’d make some of my own mostly for the qualities of it. At $3 to the occasional $4, I make my own ’cause that’s a rip-off… IF things were tight at all, I’d not be buying any commercial bread, I’d make all of it myself; but right now I’m willing to pay up for the convenience (and because $80 / hour yard work pays better ;-) but I can easily swap at any time.

    Those are probably not the major size issues in Grey & Black Markets, but they limit the Government Take also.

  316. The True Nolan says:

    Also, for anyone who still has some slight lingering belief that Federal agencies are in any way concerned with honest data collection about the clot-shot:
    From the link:
    “The question: “Are adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine recordable on the OSHA recordkeeping log?”
    The answer:
    DOL and OSHA, as well as other federal agencies, are working diligently to encourage COVID-19 vaccinations. OSHA does not wish to have any appearance of discouraging workers from receiving COVID-19 vaccination, and also does not wish to disincentivize employers’ vaccination efforts. As a result, OSHA will not enforce 29 CFR 1904’s recording requirements to require any employers to record worker side effects from COVID-19 vaccination at least through May 2022. We will reevaluate the agency’s position at that time to determine the best course of action moving forward.”

    Apparently the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy previously used by the military has been adopted by agencies who SHOULD be collecting data about vaccine side effects.

  317. The True Nolan says:

    @another ian: Regarding the claim in the link you posted that “the United States, with a GDP of $14 trillion, is numero uno”, I would offer some skepticism. I agree that it is usually reported to be in that range, but it is difficult to honestly describe the US economy in comparison to other nations. Why? Because we are 1) home of the world’s global reserve currency, and 2) controlled by psychopaths running the money supply. Some unknown but large part of our economy is simply a matter of people in power creating money which moves back and forth between various big banks and funds. It “churns” the economic numbers bigger and bigger but does essentially nothing to create tangible wealth. I saw an estimate perhaps six or seven years ago produced by some Chinese economists; they estimated that perhaps as much as one third of the supposed US economy was simply a matter of major financial played swapping funds back and forth. Essentially, we are in the middle of a Zimbabwe-ification of our economy. The DOW reaches new highs? Easy to do when the dollar is being printed to infinity, in spite of worsening fundamentals of the great majority of companies.

    There is a sad story of three economists shipwrecked on a desert island. After six months they still have no hut, no gardens, no fishing gear — but they have all become millionaires by selling an old hat back and forth to each other. That is the US economy in a nutshell.

  318. E.M.Smith says:


    Don’t forget that about 16% of the US Economy is Medical Care. Just trying to fix up the damage done to people by the rest of the economy…

    BTW, it ought not be Economists in that joke. It ought to be Wall Street Traders.


    No Economist would do labor in trading. They would just declare themselves a bank with zero reserve requirement and define $1 Million into existence via depositing a penny…

  319. The True Nolan says:

    @EM: “16% of the US Economy is Medical Care. Just trying to fix up the damage done to people by the rest of the economy…”

    Fixing the damage? Or maybe trying to drain their estate as it shepherds them along to the River Styx.

    I think it would be relatively achievable to have equal or better health care for perhaps 4% of the economy if it were allowed to go to a more free market approach. Educational expenses per year (direct government and loans) is about 7%, which could also be shaved down. Net net, probably at least HALF of our economy is financial churning, excess medical, and excess education expenses. Wouldn’t it be nice to have that 50% devoted to productive use? And, as you have pointed out, of what does trickle down to us, about half of that goes back out of our hands as various taxes and fees. And that is not even counting the loss of productivity caused by over regulation and paperwork requirements. American workers, thanks to computers and innovations in technology, have hugely increased their individual productivity since 1970, but the standard of living (difficult to calculate) is approximately the same. One could argue that it has noticeably dropped since the 1970 home probably had one wage earner while today most homes have two just to keep that standard the same. All the rising profit from that increase in productivity has been regulated out of our hands and into the banks, the bureaucracy, the big corporations, and into Hunter Biden’s art sales.

    I am starting to get a little suspicious that the game just MIGHT be rigged.

    Since the natural infection includes proteins other than the spike, I would think at a minimum a vaccinated one would develop antibodies against those. The spike proteins? Maybe not. The spike would have to be a serotype different that that of the vaccine spike.

    @Another Ian:

    That’s some good insight on the locking up of the ports. I think his “solutions” are not the best. For one, it ignores the CARB rules on emissions.

    I’d start the fix with “suspend California CARB rules on Diesels for 4 to 6 months”. Let all those truckers and chassis from all around the nation come in to take loads… Expand the I/O channel…

    Then I’d look at the available military bases, like, oh, Edwards in the Mojave with a few zillion acres of dirt. Set up a temporary yard for empty container storage and full container handling. (No need to “stack-em high” with all that land so no need for giant cranes. Smaller container handling gear can be used. I’m also pretty sure that the naval base in San Diego has some space and container handling gear…) Charge nothing to offload and store an empty there for 60 days to 90 days, then a nominal fee, rising over time as need drops off – to get them cleared out – ie no freeloading after the problem is gone. Ditto for depot of a full container there for a month (you want to get the goods to the stores, so only 1 month free…).

    IMHO, that would rapidly get the empties off of chassis, the full out of the port yard, and the ships unloaded; along with getting the full ones shipped out of State rapidly on all those loverly trucks in the other lower 47 who presently can not even ENTER the State…

    Essentially, give a big chunk of FREE “swap space” for a limited while and jump up the ability to load up and haul out containers with out of State trucks.

    But it will not be done.

    Dimocrat Politicos of all stripes LOVE DISASTERS and HATE fixing problems. They create rules specifically to break things so that their “donors” get a big chunk of change out of it (one way or another) and they get their Vig…

    IMHO, Not a whit of this will be fixed until it is so broken it becomes an embarrassment to the Donor Class and they dry up the Vigorish.

  342. E.M.Smith says:

    @Another Ian:

    I think it was your search terms rather than DDG. I just used it to find the answer:

    Using the search terms “mastodon violate open source”


    Trump’s social network has 30 days to stop breaking the rules of its software license
    Truth Social ripped off open-source platform Mastodon

    The Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC) says former President Donald Trump’s new social network violated a free and open-source software licensing agreement by ripping off decentralized social network Mastodon. The Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG) has 30 days to comply with the terms of the license before its access is terminated — forcing it to rebuild the platform or face legal action.

    TMTG launched a special purpose acquisition company fundraising effort yesterday with promises to build a sweeping media empire. Its only product so far is a social network called Truth Social that appears strongly to be forked from Mastodon. While anyone can freely reuse Mastodon’s code (and groups like right-wing social network Gab have already done so), they still have to comply with the Affero General Public License (or AGPLv3) that governs that code, and its conditions include offering their own source code to all users.

    So the “complaint” is that Trump Media & Technology Group is using Mastodon and not admitting it nor releasing any changes to the source code they may have made. (Truth or not TBD). I’m not familiar with what makes the Affero GPL (General Pubic Licence) different from the others, so one would need to dig into it with a lawyerly POV to figure out “merit”.

    Truth Social doesn’t comply with that license and, in fact, refers to its service as “proprietary.” Its developers apparently attempted to scrub references that would make the Mastodon connection clear — at one point listing a “sighting” of the Mastodon logo as a bug — but included direct references to Mastodon in the site’s underlying HTML alongside obvious visual similarities.

    This claim ignores that the service may be proprietary even if the software is not. One, for example, could layer a whole bunch of custom HTML & Graphics on top of free software to, oh, I don’t know, make a proprietary Web Site all with underlying free software. This will get into the weeds of the Affero GPL requirements.

    TMTG’s strategy hasn’t sat well with the SFC, an organization that enforces free and open-source software licenses. “The license purposefully treats everyone equally (even people we don’t like or agree with), but they must operate under the same rules of the copyleft licenses that apply to everyone else,” SFC policy fellow Bradley Kuhn wrote in a blog post. “Today, we saw the Trump Media and Technology Group ignoring those important rules — which were designed for the social good.”

    So a bald assertion of some “violation” but no actual specifics. Does the licence forbid customizing of logos? Does it forbid proprietary services run on top of the software? Are these folks “reaching”? MUST you release “your version” when it is still in development and not finished yet? Or can you wait until you HAVE a version to release? (I suspect this is a harassment suit in the making and a PR Attack as I’ve seen other folks not release a copy until well after final deployment).

    Then we find the core of the “offense”… they shut down the Abuse Mob:

    Truth Social hasn’t officially launched. But users could access a test version of the platform, where many of them created prank accounts that flooded the service with false company announcements and even fake Donald Trump posts. (The platform has since been replaced by a waitlist.) The SFC demands that TMTG offer all these users access to the Truth Social source code. “If they fail to do this within 30 days, their rights and permissions in the software are automatically and permanently terminated,” Kuhn says.

    Yes, you MUST give all the Abuse Mob every detail needed to hack your site forever… Isn’t that special…

    If Truth Social fails to make the source code available, the SFC could sue it for violating the terms of the license it used. Earlier this year, the group sued electronics maker Vizio for “repeated failures to fulfill even the basic requirements” of free software licensing. “We will be following this issue very closely and demanding that Trump’s Group give the corresponding source to all who use the site,” Kuhn writes.

    Were I the TMTG, and IFF they are using Mastodon, I’d just hand over a copy of Mastodon to them with the Mastodon logo’s chopped out. Then say “We are using Mastodon to provide our proprietary content on top of it. Have a nice day.”

    IF they then complain more, ask if EVERY Linux system user must publish all their email, accounting data, web page source, sales bookings, etc. that run on top of that Open Source software?

    The truth will be in the specifics of the Affero GPL wording (as opposed to all the other GPLs floating about) and I suppose it is possible that it has some trick wording in it that wasn’t studied by the techs and lawyers at TMTG and caught them. BUT… I’d never want to get into a “war of the lawyers” with someone who can spend $1/2 Billion on lawyers and not really be worried… Probably already has them on salaried staff…

    Note the change in vaccine confidence in the Philippines between 2015 and 2018.

    source: https://interactive.aljazeera.com/aje/2021/how-philippines-lost-faith-in-vaccines/index.html
    That article’s POV is that now parents are refusing to have their children vaccinated and now children are dying of measles. All because of a scandal about a Dengue fever vaccine in 2016 and 2017. That article says it was misinformation and that the vaccine is safe. But not so fast …

    The vaccine is Dengvaxia and it contains a weakened virus. That vaccine was stopped in the Philippines when its maker “Sanofi Pasteur advised the government that the vaccine could put previously uninfected people at a somewhat higher risk of a severe case of dengue fever through antibody-dependent enhancement.”

    Approximately 800,000 schoolchildren received the Dengvaxia vaccine and benefit from the protection it grants against dengue fever. However around 10% of those 800,000 had not had dengue fever before and therefore are at risk of severe infection because of the vaccine.

    Most of the deaths were caused by internal bleeding in the heart, lungs and brain, which are symptoms of hemorrhagic dengue.
    source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dengvaxia_controversy

    “The World Health Organization recommends that the vaccine only be given to persons with confirmed previous dengue virus infection.”
    FDA has approved this drug in the US, but
    “In June 2021, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended use of Dengvaxia to prevent dengue in children aged 9 to 16 years, with laboratory-confirmed previous dengue virus infection and living in areas where dengue is common.”
    source: https://www.cdc.gov/dengue/prevention/dengue-vaccine.html

    “The U.S. Food and Drug Administration just [May 2019] approved one of the most sought after vaccines in recent decades. […] The vaccine, called Dengvaxia, is aimed at helping children in Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories where dengue is a problem. But this vaccine has a dark — and deadly — history. One that has led to criminal charges in the Philippines, sparked national panic and fueled a massive measles outbreak that has already killed more than 355 people.”
    source: https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2019/05/03/719037789/botched-vaccine-launch-has-deadly-repercussions

    But halfway around the world from the Philippines, in a Washington, D.C., suburb, one scientist was worried about the new vaccine.

    “When I read the New England Journal article, I almost fell out of my chair,” says Dr. Scott Halstead, who has studied dengue for more than 50 years with the U.S. military. When Halstead looked at the vaccine’s safety data in the clinical trial, he knew right away there was a problem.

    For some children, the vaccine didn’t seem to work. In fact, Halstead says, it appeared to be harmful. When those kids caught dengue after being vaccinated, the vaccine appeared to worsen the disease in some instances. Specifically, for children who had never been exposed to dengue, the vaccine seemed to increase the risk of a deadly complication called plasma leakage syndrome, in which blood vessels start to leak the yellow fluid of the blood.

    “Then everything gets worse, and maybe it’s impossible to save your life,” Halstead says. “A child can go into shock.”

    “The trouble is that the disease occurs very rapidly, just in a matter of a few hours,” he adds. “And there’s nothing on the outside of the body to signify the person is leaking fluid on the inside.”

    The complication is rare, says Halstead. Still, he was so worried about the safety concerns that he wrote at least six editorials for scientific journals. He even made a video to warn the Philippine government about the problem.

    “I just think, ‘No, you can’t give a vaccine to a perfectly normal, healthy person and then put them at an increased risk for the rest of their lives for plasma leakage syndrome,’ ” Halstead says. “You can’t do that.”

    Op. cit.

    Typically, a vaccine works by triggering the immune system to make antibodies against the virus. These antibodies then fight off the virus during an infection.

    But dengue is a tricky virus. Dengue antibodies don’t always protect a person. In fact, these antibodies can make an infection worse. The dengue virus actually uses the antibodies to help it spread through the body. So a second infection with dengue — when your blood already has antibodies in it — can actually be worse than the first; a person is at a higher risk of severe complications like plasma leakage syndrome.

    Op. cit.

    But in the world of vaccines, that’s not an acceptable risk. A risk needs to be exceedingly small to be tolerated. For example, with the measles vaccine, the risk of encephalitis is about 1 in 1 million, or 1,000 times less than the risk from a measles infection, WHO says.

    Favorite Dimowit public transit go-to is a go-not.

    This week’s suspension of Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) Series 7000 rail cars is a reminder to policymakers of some of the limits of rail technology as a cost-effective mode of metro area travel. The problems are also an opportunity for Congress and the Biden administration to reflect on these limitations before enacting the Senate-passed infrastructure bill, which looks to provide billions of additional dollars for rail transit.

    After multiple derailments, the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission ordered that WMATA take its newest cars out of service. Because the Kawasaki-manufactured Series 7000 cars account for about 60% of the agency’s rolling stock, the suspension is causing a reduction in train frequencies, with 30-minute headways now the norm on most lines, compared to the usual 10-12 minute frequencies.

    Interesting that in the new millennium we can’t make decent 1800’s technology…

    It really isn’t that hard to make track and wheels that work. We have thousands of miles of freight traffic track with millions of miles of freight traffic over it. It has worked well from the era of steam onward. In the 1950s passenger trains were common and reliable. But now they can’t keep them on the tracks. OK…

    And tell me again why a train CAR needs “software”? Engine pulls it. Push button to send electricity to open doors when stopped. Not seeing the need for a computer nor software…

    I’m sure someone thought it a better idea that switched power and air brakes, somehow. But really… A computer for trivial function control is NOT in keeping with the KISS principle.

    (BTW, after a couple of test drives I will *NEVER* buy one of the new cars with a “tablet” glued to the dashboard where you must run through menus to do things like turn off the radio and run the wipers… Just a horrible human interface and the amount of time you must take your eyes off the road to manipulate the thing is a Very Bad Idea. )

    @E.M. – My new truck with all that whiz-bang stuff on the screen is backed up by knobs and buttons. They’ve set it up as a “your choice.”

    I use the knobs and buttons because I find the screens to be a big distraction, too. You have to go to the screen you want and select your options when using the screen, so that’s at least two layers and sometimes three. Knobs? Just turn them up or down or push a button.

    There are a few things you need to do from the screen, like select C or F for temperature display and kph or mph for the speed display. Oh, the one I liked is where you can turn off the little horn honk when you use the remote to lock the car. IIRC, you can choose first press of ‘lock’, after second press of ‘lock’, or never honk.

    That’s one of the things for which there’s no knob or button. There are a few other things, but they are similarly trivial so you set it and forget it until you sell it. Oh yeah… you can select the language for the display. But the default is English, so if that ever crapped out, it wouldn’t matter to me. If it got stuck on Spanish. That would be an opportunity to practice my H.S. Spanish 😁

    I have heard of the horrors of some automakers’ screens where the screen is your only option. I don’t know if anyone is still doing that, but ‘screen only’ would be a deal breaker for me.

    A week or two ago I received an email from the local Toyota dealership. They WANT TO BUY MY CAR (it was in big letters).
    Then yesterday they phoned me. They said it was to make sure everyone knew they worked on all makes of cars, not just Toyota.
    In fact, I bought my Honda from that Toyota dealership.
    Anyway, I did call them back. They said that cars like my 13 year old van with more than 235K miles on it are going for a nice premium nowadays. I said, “I like my car. I don’t what I’d drive if I sold it.”
    Then they talked about leasing a car. I had told them I (regretfully) spent 4 figures on service on my Honda at the Honda dealership last winter/spring. I had to borrow most of the money. :-(
    But 3 out of the 4 seals they touched weren’t done right, and I had to have others finally fix them right. Grrrrrrr… I won’t be finished paying for those repairs until next spring. The car itself has nearly a year left on the loan. I’m not convinced the things I was charged for really were necessary, or even were really done. Just saying… Grrrrrr…
    So I thought I’d put the question out to this august group. If you have an opinion and/or experience about leasing cars, I’d like to hear what you have to say.

    P.S. The main reasons I went to the Honda dealership for the work were that (1) there were several official recalls to be done, and (2) my usual independent shop wouldn’t drive me anywhere or let me in their office due to CV. Grrrrrr…..

    Oh, and regarding touch screens in vehicles…I’m really tired of the touch screen way of controlling things. In fact, when my non-touch-screen-controlled 80GB Zune finally got to where it was even a pain to deal with while sitting in its dock (and controlling it via its remote), I got a NOS one off eBay. It’s a dandy.
    I had tried a couple models of iPods, but lost track of the Nano and gave the larger one to my offspring, who was delighted to receive it. I don’t know if it’s still in use, though.
    (I believe manufacturers like to produce devices without hardware controls and jacks because it costs them less.)
    At least with the Zunes I’ve had, I can control them by touch if I’m using them in the car. That counts for a lot for me. It also counts for a lot that I have never filled up a Zune with 80GB of storage!
    Did I mention that, of the two phones I have on my copper-line phone, my favorite is the vintage Trimline? It’s so nice to be able to just grab and talk. It’s better for holding on my shoulder so I can type with both hands, too.

    @Power Grab:

    I’ve never leased a car, but that may be because I had an entire class in “Buy vs Lease Economics” (linear programming) and the only time lease makes sense for a person is when they don’t have the capital to buy and must pay high interest rates, but the lease interest rate is the corporations rate and so lower. Basically it lets you leverage their credit rate and moves you to a lower monthly payment.


    At the end of the lease you can find yourself with a big bubble payment based on several Gotcha terms in the contract. Excess miles. Condition not great. Bubble Payment built in (i.e. blue book lower than contracted so you make up the difference). Sometimes there is a mandatory maintenance provision so you are locked into Dealer Maintenance at their rates.

    FWIW, I’ve generally never had Dealers do any repairs. Just too many horror stories and they are always trying to avoid doing recall or warrantee maintenance so their techs are well trained at not doing the work; while independents need you to be happy or you talk dirt about them and do not come back…

    I just pay cash for what I can afford and don’t care if it isn’t the newest at Low Monthly Payment with all sorts of hidden hooks on maintenance and end of lease buy out…

    In advance of the 2020 Presidential Election, Kill Chain: The Cyber War on America’s Elections takes a deep dive into the weaknesses of today’s election technology, an issue that is little understood by the public or even lawmakers.

    From directors Simon Ardizzone, Russell Michaels and Sarah Teale, the team behind HBO’s 2006 Emmy-nominated documentary Hacking Democracy, Kill Chain again follows Finnish hacker and cyber security expert Harri Hursti as he travels across the U.S. and around the world to show how our election systems remain unprotected, with very little accountability or transparency. Hursti’s eye-opening journey is supplemented by candid interviews with key figures in the election security community, as well as cyber experts and U.S. senators from both parties who are fighting to secure the integrity of the vote before November 2020.

    As the film shows, individuals, foreign states and other bad actors can employ a myriad of techniques to gain access to voting systems at any stage – from voter registration databases to actual election results.

    Through this lens, seemingly unrelated or uncoordinated security breaches of the recent past can be seen as part of a “kill chain” – a military doctrine to plot meticulous, long-game attacks, understanding that breaking down trust in voting results is the surest way to undermine democracy. As enlightening as it is disturbing, Kill Chain underscores the fragility of our election process and points to the clear solutions available to protect us against sabotage.

    Climate change blamed for putting Belgium beer business at risk
    Unusually warm autumns mean traditional open air brewing can no longer take place causing concern for artisan brewers
    Agence France-Presse ⟨·⟩ Tue 3 Nov 2015 22.39 EST
    A leading Belgian artisan brewer said Tuesday he had been forced to temporarily halt production because of an unusually warm autumn, blaming climate change for his business losing its fizz. The Cantillon craft brewery in Brussels traditionally allows its spontaneously fermenting sour lambic beers to cool in the open from the end of October, but this year after a brief start they have had to stop again.

    Cantillon is a (very) highly respected craft brewery. It’s perhaps 1 of those Belgian breweries brought to the attention of an previously indifferent outside world by world-renowned “Beer Hunter” Michael Jackson († 2007).

    Stakeholder Capitalism at Davos 2020

    The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) 50th Annual Meeting in Davos is focused on stakeholder capitalism with the central theme “Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World.”4

    Professor Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chair of the WEF and a long-time supporter of stakeholder theory, said, “People are revolting against the economic ‘elites’ they believe have betrayed them, and our efforts to keep global warming limited to 1.5°C are falling dangerously short.”4

    The WEF updated its “Davos Manifesto,” a set of principles that underpin the event, for the first time in over 40 years. It now plainly states at the top, “the purpose of a company is to engage all its stakeholders in shared and sustained value creation” and says companies should have zero tolerance for corruption, uphold human rights, and pay their fair share of taxes.5

    The organization and the Big Four accounting companies are also developing a set of universal metrics and disclosures that companies can include in their annual reports to measure their social and environmental performance. “By aligning companies with asset owner and asset managers through common, limited and meaningful metrics, we will ensure sufficient capital is available to meet the Sustainable Development Goals,” said Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America and WEF International Business Council (IBC) chair.6

    Former ABC, NBC, and CNN Emmy-Nominated Cameraman Arrested for Threatening to Kill Matt Gaetz and His Family
    By Cassandra Fairbanks
    Published October 27, 2021 at 7:30am

    A former camera guy for ABC, NBC and CNN has been arrested for threatening to kill Rep. Matt Gaetz and any future children that he has.
    Eugene “Gene” Huelsman, 58, was arrested in Los Angeles on an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Pensacola, Florida.

    “Tell [M.G.] to watch his back, tell him to watch his children,” Huelsman told Gaetz’s office on Jan. 9, according to the two-page indictment shielding the lawmaker’s name as “M.G.” that was obtained by Law & Crime. “I’m coming for him, he’s gonna fucking die… I’m gonna fucking kill him… Watch your back, I’m coming for you. I’m gonna put a bullet in you and I’m gonna put a bullet in one of your fucking kids too.”

    The indictment was filed under seal all the way back in May, but there was seemingly no effort to arrest him until Gaetz complained on the House floor about the Justice Department not taking threats against him seriously enough.
    “An indictment was issued in May, and has now been unsealed the week after my criticism,” Gaetz said. “If they took our security seriously, they would arrest all of the people who violate federal law and the threats to kill us, not just some of them… I think that the Department of Justice is biased against Republicans.”

All travelers will have to be tested before boarding a plane to the U.S. Tightened restrictions for American and foreign citizens not fully vaccinated will be in place…

    …The U.S. will accept any FDA-approved vaccine for regular or emergency use or approved by the World Health Organization. These include Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca and China’s Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines. Mixing and matching of approved shots will be permitted.

    No explanation given, but I think I know. Read the abstract.
    It was removed along with the paper at some places but not all.

    Following the global rollout and administration of the Pfizer Inc./BioNTech BNT162b2 and Moderna mRNA-1273 vaccines on December 17, 2020, in the United States, and of the Janssen Ad26.COV2.S product on April 1st, 2021, in an unprecedented manner, hundreds of thousands of individuals have reported adverse events (AEs) using the Vaccine Adverse Events Reports System (VAERS). We used VAERS data to examine cardiac AEs, primarily myocarditis, reported following injection of the first or second dose of the COVID-19 injectable products. Myocarditis rates reported in VAERS were significantly higher in youths between the ages of 13 to 23 (p<0.0001) with ∼80% occurring in males. Within 8 weeks of the public offering of COVID-19 products to the 12-15-year-old age group, we found 19 times the expected number of myocarditis cases in the vaccination volunteers over background myocarditis rates for this age group. In addition, a 5-fold increase in myocarditis rate was observed subsequent to dose 2 as opposed to dose 1 in 15-year-old males. A total of 67% of all cases occurred with BNT162b2. Of the total myocarditis AE reports, 6 individuals died (1.1%) and of these, 2 were under 20 years of age – 1 was 13. These findings suggest a markedly higher risk for myocarditis subsequent to COVID-19 injectable product use than for other known vaccines, and this is well above known background rates for myocarditis. COVID-19 injectable products are novel and have a genetic, pathogenic mechanism of action causing uncontrolled expression of SARS-CoV-2 spike protein within human cells. When you combine this fact with the temporal relationship of AE occurrence and reporting, biological plausibility of cause and effect, and the fact that these data are internally and externally consistent with emerging sources of clinical data, it supports a conclusion that the COVID-19 biological products are deterministic for the myocarditis cases observed after injection.
