Is Jail In The Future For The Unvaxxed?

According to President Biden, “a winter of death” awaits anyone who rejects the experimental COVID jab which, by the way, has been consistently shown to do far more harm than good.

A December 16, 2021, White House statement reads: “For the unvaccinated, we are looking at a winter of severe illness and death. For themselves, their family and the hospital they’ll soon overwhelm.” That exact sentence was reiterated the next day by COVID-19 response coordinator Jeff Zients during a virtual press conference.

Backlash Over Biden’s Callousness

As reported by MSN’s Claire Goforth, the “prediction” didn’t go over well with the public. “Most people hate it. They feel it’s callous and cruel,” Goforth said, quoting a number of Twitter responses, including one from John D. Davidson:

“If you wanted to make half the country hate the administration and resist its edicts and advice, it would be hard to come up with a better strategy than this.”

A Twitter user by the name Martyr Made noted, “The aggressive Us/Them language in this White House message is insane.” Olivia Nuzzi, a Washington, D.C., reporter for New York Magazine tweeted, “Who is this for? Unvaccinated Americans are not going to be persuaded by messaging like this.”

White House Chief of Staff Ronald Klain defended Biden saying “we have a duty to warn people what they are facing if unvaccinated.” But from my perspective, the rub is that they continue to pretend that lies are truth and truth is lies. Everything is upside-down, and many are rejecting this “winter of woe” message for the simple fact that they know the opposite is true.

If we are to go by actual science and data, the warning Biden issued should have gone out to the vaccinated, because everything points to the double and triple jabbed being at increased risk for infection, especially with the Omicron variant.

One reason for this is because the COVID jab reprograms your innate and adaptive immune systems, causing immune depletion. Data also show that the more heavily “vaccinated” a population is, the higher the case rate gets. And even this fails to account for the massive increase risk of dying from the jab or becoming permanently disabled, as many jabbed millions have already suffered.

Former WHO Adviser Tells Vaccinated to Quarantine Over Winter

Back in August 2021, the U.K. Column interviewed professor Christian Perronne, a French infectious disease expert, long-time vaccine policy chief and former vice president of the World Health Organization’s European Advisory Group, who issued the opposite — and likely far more accurate — warning:

“Vaccinated people are at risk of the new variants … It’s been proven in different countries, so vaccinated people should be put in quarantine and should be isolated from society. Unvaccinated people are not dangerous; vaccinated people are dangerous to others.

It’s proven in Israel now. I’m in contact with many physicians in Israel. They’re having big problems now; severe cases in hospitals are among vaccinated people. And in the UK also, you had a larger vaccination program and also there are problems.”

Not surprisingly, despite impeccable credentials, Peronne has been censored and shunned for his contrarian views on COVID countermeasures, the COVID gene transfer shots in particular. During his interview, he didn’t mince words, referring to the European COVID-19 policy as “completely stupid.”

Are Prison Camps for the Unjabbed Next?

As predicted, we are rapidly approaching a time when the unvaccinated might be imprisoned for no other reason than their refusal of an experimental gene transfer injection. In early January 2021, a New York bill (A416) was introduced that would give the governor and his or her delegates the power to remove and/or indefinitely detain anyone suspected of being a threat to public health.

Detainees would be kept in a “medical facility or other appropriate facility” — in other words, a medical prison camp — for a maximum of 60 days, although a court could extend the detention in 90-day increments, indefinitely. As reported by Reason:

“The bill’s language is noticeably vague in defining the parameters around disease type, leaving the government wide latitude in conducting its risk analysis … The legislation was originally introduced during the 2015-16 session in response to the Ebola virus … Though [SARS-CoV-2] is a serious virus, it is also no Ebola, which carries an average case fatality rate of 50%, with some outbreaks reaching as high as 90% …

The vagueness of its approach gives the state a great deal of discretion in locking people up who might have some sort of unnamed illness, as well as people who merely interacted with someone who might have that illness.”

The bill comes up for a vote in the New York Senate and Assembly sometime in the next legislative session, which begins January 5, 2022. In addition to indefinite detention for poorly specified reasons, the bill would “require an individual who has been exposed to or infected by a contagious disease to complete an appropriate, prescribed course of treatment, preventive medication or vaccination.”

In other words, this bill legalizes the forced vaccination of anyone who is detained under the mere suspicion of being infected with something or having been in close proximity to someone suspected of being infected. As reported by Rights and Freedoms:

“There is no explicit reference to what types of contagious diseases qualify a person to be removed from public life, detained in a facility, and forced into medical treatment and vaccination. Anyone can technically be held in isolation until they are deemed non-contagious, which would also raise questions over whether those carrying HIV/AIDS could be released back into society.

The bill has received an overwhelmingly negative response on the NY Senate website. Commenters have stated that, ‘this is disturbing and sets up a terrible precedent for future law. The governor can basically detain whoever [he/she] likes on the basis of scanty evidence.

This is un-American. It reminiscent of the Soviet Union locking up political opponents on the basis that they were ‘mentally unstable.’ We CANNOT allow this in our state.’ ‘This is a violation of fundamental human rights. The government should be working for the people, not locking them up without cause.’”

Australia Among the First to Test Medical Imprisonment Model

If you think being tossed into a prison camp without cause or recourse is impossible — after all, this is the United States of America, the land of the free, home of the brave — think again. Australia, another shining star of democracy, has backslidden into totalitarianism at a speed that has everyone’s head spinning.

The Australian government has gone full speed ahead, building a massive COVID quarantine camp, complete with barbed wire fences, guards and video surveillance. Once you’re in, you can’t just waltz out whenever you want to. In the video above, Hayley Hodgson describes what it was like to be detained and transferred to a COVID internment camp, even though she wasn’t sick.

Video surveillance placed her with a friend who had tested positive. They ran her license plate to retrieve her address and showed up at her house, telling her she had to quarantine. Even if you test negative, you still have to spend 14 days in a quarantine camp if you’ve been in close contact with someone who has tested positive. If you refuse, you’re fined $5,000 and forcibly taken there by police anyway.

“You feel like you’re in prison … It’s inhumane what they’re doing,” she says. “You are so small. They just overpower you. You’re literally nothing. It’s like, ‘You do what we say, or … we’ll lock you up for longer.’”

If someone can threaten to extend your stay in this “health hotel,” just what kind of medicine are we dealing with? Clearly, this is a prison model, not a health care model. When have you ever been in a hospital and the nurse tells you, “If you don’t eat your pudding, we’re keeping you here another three months?”

Life in the Biosecurity State

Based on Hodgson’s description of the camp, you don’t get much in terms of medical attention. One shudders to think what would happen to someone who actually had a severe case of COVID in there. Will hazmat suit-equipped police drop you at your room and then you don’t see them again unless you’re caught breaking some rule?

You’re literally treated like a prisoner in there. ~ Hayley Hodgson

Food is delivered and dropped outside your door once a day. Each room has a 2×2 meter deck where you can go, but if you step outside your room or designated outdoor area without a mask, you’re fined $5,000. She was also told that additional infractions would result in her stay being extended past the 14 days — even though she wasn’t sick and there was no reason to keep her there in the first place.

“You’re literally treated like a prisoner in there,” she says. If you’re triple jabbed and think that means you’ll never see the inside of one of these prisons, think again. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve been double or triple jabbed.

If you’re found to have been in close contact with someone who tests positive, in you go. And there’s no legal process you can turn to for help if you disagree with the decree to quarantine. During her stay, three teenagers — all of whom had tested negative — managed to escape the camp. The manhunt that ensued is further evidence that we’re dealing with a prison model and nothing else.

US Has Hundreds of Ready-Made Prison Camps

While Australia is building its second camp, the U.S. already has 800 FEMA camps ready for action. As reported by AMG News:

“FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations … The camps all have railroad facilities as well as roads leading to and from the detention facilities. Many also have an airport nearby.

The majority of the camps can house a population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the largest of these facilities is just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive mental health facility and can hold approximately 2 million people.”

The article goes on to list the many executive orders that can work together to suspend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, effectively allowing government to seize control over all aspects of life, from food production and transportation to communications and health care functions.

There’s even an executive order that allows the government to mobilize civilians into “work brigades” to carry out whatever functions are deemed necessary, and one that allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate entire communities. To find the FEMA camp nearest you, check out the state listings in the AMG News article. Most states have three or more.

Interpret the Media Narrative — They Want Civil War

If you’ve been paying attention over the past couple of years, you may have noticed that you can almost always predict what the next phase of the narrative is going to be. They “advertise” or pave the way for the evolving narrative by putting out articles slanted in a given direction.

Based on recent headlines, I suspect “the powers that be” are hoping to incite a civil war. “CIA Advisor: US Is ‘Closer to Civil War’ Than Thought Possible,” the Daily Mail claims. “We’re Edging Closer to Civil War,” an opinion columnist at The New York Times declares. “US Closer to Civil War Than Most Would Like to Believe, New Book Says,” announces The Guardian.

According to Dr. Barbara Walter, a political science professor who serves on the Political Instability Task Force, the U.S. meets several criteria that historically have served as indicators that an “open insurgency” may be imminent. In her book, “How Civil Wars Start,” she writes:

“No one wants to believe that their beloved democracy is in decline, or headed toward war. If you were an analyst in a foreign country looking at events in America — the same way you’d look at events in Ukraine or the Ivory Coast or Venezuela — you would go down a checklist, assessing each of the conditions that make civil war likely. And what you would find is that the United States … has entered very dangerous territory.”

Government Has Designated the Enemy, and It’s Us

The problem here is that while authoritarian politicians keep paying lip service to “democracy,” their own actions are anything but. Just who is undermining democracy? If you believe the news and CIA advisers, it’s the people who want the Constitution to stand and be adhered to that are the enemies of democracy. Never mind the mental gymnastics required to get to that conclusion.

It’s not hard to predict a scenario in which authoritarian leaders, acting on a falsely constructed narrative that a civil war is imminent, might start rounding up “dissidents.” And that’s in addition to the already existing, thinly veiled threat of tossing the unvaccinated into indefinite detention.

I agree with Walter’s assessment that we’re in dangerous territory, but not for the same reasons as she suggests. I would also argue that just about every country is a powder keg ready to blow, and for the same reason — people are being tyrannized by their governments and by unelected health authorities that claim powers they do not legally have.

Take England, for example. Entrepreneur and COVID blogger Steve Kirsch was recently notified that an anti-COVID restrictions campaign member had been detained for 28 days under the Mental Health Act for not wearing a mask to a dentist appointment.18 Normally, it’s quite difficult to get a person sectioned under the Mental Health Act, but not anymore.

Refusing to wear a mask apparently qualifies as an acute mental health disorder warranting a month-long stay in a psych ward.

The man, Charlie Cunningham, is reportedly being held at Littlemore Mental Hospital in Oxford, “where he’s being deprived of sleep under the pretext of being suicidal,” according to the woman who contacted Kirsch. She added, “He’s now going to be detained over Christmas and New Year — [he’s] very upset as he feels he’s been kidnapped and being held against his will …”

While all the articles mentioned earlier that warn of civil war blame the decline in democracy on the Trump administration, the Trump administration can hardly be blamed for the civil rights abuses and power grabs that are occurring today. It’s time to judge each tree by its fruit. That said, knowing that a civil war would serve the totalitarian takeover agenda, it would be wise to make sure our resistance remains a peaceful one.

Vaccine Mandates Are On Their Way: They May Be Digital

Vaccine passports have been dangled like the proverbial carrot in front of a weary public longing to get back to a semblance of normalcy after nearly two years of lockdowns, masking and social distancing. A Swedish company released a short video demonstrating technology that allows them to implant a computer chip in your hand or arm that can carry your vaccine status.

The video quickly spread across social media, generating questions and contributing to the growing fear that “Big Brother” is growing stronger. The millions of deaths that were predicted by a flawed model for this pandemic, and which seemingly started the push for a vaccine, have not come to fruition.

Coupled with a recent engineering analysis of the data, which strongly suggests that the number of deaths from the vaccine now outnumber the number of deaths from the illness, the likelihood that the push for vaccine mandates is meant to protect your health is slim to none.

As of December 10, 2021, the VAERS database recorded 20,244 deaths from the vaccine. Using the under-reporting factor (URF) of 41 determined in the recent analysis, there conceivably could have been an overwhelming 830,004 deaths from the vaccine in 12 months, versus the 797,503 deaths recorded by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention for the illness in 24 months.

Researchers and doctors have reported that the newest iteration of the coronavirus — Omicron — results in little more than cold symptoms, and as of December 17, 2021, has led to only one confirmed death in the U.K. The most common symptoms are a scratchy throat, headache, fatigue and runny nose.

And yet, the call and cry for vaccine mandates, public masking and vaccine passports continues. As one meme puts it: “They’re telling the unjabbed to take the jab because the jab works. And telling the jabbed to get a booster because the jab doesn’t work … while telling everyone that the unjabbed are putting the jabbed in danger by not getting a jab that didn’t protect the jabbed.”

Swedish Company Promoting Implanted Vaccine Passports

On the surface, Swedish company Epicenter is promoting the company’s biochip technology to monitor and track vaccine status, but the future likely holds more. The firm used a short video clip to showcase the implant that can store data and then be read by any device using near field communication (NFC) protocol.

The technology is currently in use with other applications, such as mobile wallets and accepting payments at the point of sale. Unlike Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, the interaction must be within an extremely short range, normally a few centimeters. NFC devices can also be used bidirectionally, which means that it can act as a reader or a tag.

The National Post reports that thousands in Sweden are having these microchips inserted between their thumbs and index fingers. In 2017, CNBC reported Epicenter was using the implants in their workers to open doors, operate printers and purchase goods on the company campus.

At the time, the co-founder and CEO of Epicenter, Patrick Mesterton, told CNBC that “The biggest benefit I think is convenience.” The idea was to replace communication devices such as credit cards or keys. It’s the same technology that’s been used in pets or packages to track deliveries. Mesterton said he originally had doubts but then compared the data-gathering implant with pacemakers that control your heartbeat.

In 2017, CNBC reported approximately 150 workers had been implanted. By 2018, the National Post reported that 3,500 people in Sweden had been implanted with biochips. That number grew to 6,000 by 2021.

An article in the National Post in 2018 postulated that Swedes were more likely to accept the implants because the Swedish biohacking culture is generally part of the transhumanist movement. Another theory is that they have been raised to share more of their personal details based on their social security system.

In addition, it appears that people have a strong faith in digital technology and a deep belief in the positive potential they believe it holds. The Swedish government is heavily invested in technology and the economy is now largely influenced by tech innovations, services and digital exports. The transhumanist movement in Sweden is built on the cultural belief that digital technology will help humans compete with Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Vaccine Passports Used to Leverage Hesitancy

The movement to use biochips as vaccine passports has a foundation in discrimination and not convenience. MedPage Today reports on a six-country study in which the researchers found that when vaccination proof or a recent negative test was required for people to go to public places or travel, the country saw more people taking the COVID jab.

The data showed that in the 20 days before policies were implemented and the first 40 days afterward, there was a greater uptick in the number accepting the genetic therapy injection. The data also showed that age was a factor in acceptance.

Individuals younger than 20 and those 20 to 49 years were more likely to get the shot when certification was required to access nightclubs, large events, leisure activities and the hospitality sector. The researchers wrote:

“Given higher vaccine complacency and hesitancy in certain groups, such as younger people (<30 years), this intervention could be an additional policy lever to increase vaccine uptake and population-level immunity.”

In other words, the researchers suggest that using mandatory vaccination could essentially threaten individuals into receiving an injection they do not want just so they will be able to engage in society. Without a vaccination, individuals would no longer be able to access public places, public transportation and work, and without income and socialization, people would be forced to take the genetic therapy shot.

Interestingly, the study also attempted to look at the impact that the vaccine passport would have on caseloads. However, the data did not show what was hoped — that the vaccine passports and higher rates of vaccination reduced the number of cases. Instead, they found cases reduced in some countries and rose in others, suggesting another factor was at work influencing infection rates.

Steven Northam, director of U.K.’s BioTeq, the leading human technology implant specialist, predicted: “In 10 to15 years, microchipped humans will be an everyday occurrence.” Noelle Chesley, associate professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin, agrees, having told USA Today in 2017, “It will happen to everybody. Maybe not my generation, but certainly that of my kids.”

The viral video from Sweden promoting biochip vaccine passports received mixed reviews. While some saw the move as a genius idea integrating technology into the human body, others think it is reminiscent of a sci-fi movie or possibly forerunner to the “mark of the beast” from the book of Revelations in the Bible.

Visible and Invisible Tattoos Under Your Skin

An implanted chip is not the only way you might be marked with vaccine information. Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology also announced how vaccine certificates may be injected under the skin using quantum dots a few nanometers in size.

The technique uses transdermal patches described as being used to “label people” with invisible ink that can store information under the skin. The fluorescent quantum dot tags are applied at the same time as the vaccine injection. The transdermal patch has dissolvable microneedles that co-deliver the light-emitting microparticles and the vaccine.

The research was originally funded by the Gates Foundation and the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research. When the dots are lit with UV light it increases the energy level of the molecules. Cell culture studies have suggested the physicochemical characteristics are one factor that creates toxicity in these quantum microdots.

Kevin McHugh, who is a member of the team working on the technology, explains that despite potential toxicity challenges, the technique could allow for “rapid inspection of vaccination history.” Thus far, the technology has only been used in animal experiments, but according to McHugh the technology is primarily targeted at children.

Another form of marking your body with information is a tattoo. A 22-year-old Italian student’s ink went viral when a video was taken of his friends scanning the QR code tattooed on his arm. The New York Post describes the side effects of having QR codes tattooed on your body as the need for them “to be designed just right” and giving them time to heal to work properly.

Digital IDs Are About Control and Profit, Not Safety

While some see vaccine passports as a convenience and implanted chips as a way of keeping track of their wallet or keys, make no mistake, they are a precursor to a digital ID. Thales Digital Identity and Security company says they are “offering citizens unparalleled convenience and security.”

However, while promoted as something with superior convenience, digital passports don’t always work and ultimately will turn you into a slave in a system that profits from surveilling everything you do. The system is funded and will be administered by unelected globalists with the power to cut your access to money, health care, travel and food.

Some of the organizations behind this agenda are the World Economic Forum, the World Health Organization, the Rockefellers, the World Bank and Bill Gates. Much of what they talk about is said using altruistic language meant to engage you in a propaganda campaign that conceals their profit motive.

In the real world, digital ID systems have proven disastrous for the average person and have resulted in marginalization and even death. For example, a random sampling of 18 villages in India that have implemented compulsory biometric authentication at rationing stations showed that 37% of people were unable to get their food for one reason or another.

This means only 63% of people found the system convenient and 37% were in danger of disease and death. Imagine relying on a system like this every day of your life for your banking, food, health care and everyday purchases. Canadian immunologist and geneticist Sir John Bell thinks the COVID-19 medical system could easily be repurposed as “a global program for other ailments.”

Future mandated health treatments and vaccinations may result in your loss of freedom. For example, in several years drugs such as mandatory statin treatment as a public health measure may be required to maintain a valid passport.

Ultimately, these biometric identification systems allow private companies to profit from your personal data. Many have already been siphoning your online data and selling it to anyone willing to pay. However, a biometric identification system will allow them to profit from your very identity, while simultaneously enslaving you to the system.

Natural Immunity Surpasses Shot-Induced Protection

It is crucial that you take a minute to remember that natural immunity surpasses any vaccine-induced protection. Medical science is proving these vaccines have been useless and irrational. Daniel Horowitz calls forced vaccination the 800-pound gorilla in the pandemic.

August 25, 2021, in an article in The Blaze, he reported there are at least 15 studies that show natural immunity from the previous infection is more robust and longer-lasting than what you get from the COVID-19 genetic therapy injection.

The data show that vaccine immunity rapidly wanes regardless of the variance. To boost your immunity, health leaders want you to take a booster after just six months. But, according to the Mayo Clinic, as of July 2021, Pfizer’s COVID injection was only 42% effective against infection,which doesn’t meet the Food and Drug Administration’s requirement of 50% efficacy for COVID vaccines.

Steps to Impede the Threat of Vaccine Mandates and Passports

Investigative reporter James Corbett of The Corbett Report Solution Watch explores how we can thwart the threat of vaccine mandates and passports. He stresses there is no one-size-fits-all solution across the world. In an earlier article, I listed some general suggestions Corbett makes to address this:

1. Legal challenges to the vaccine mandates 

A variety of legal resources can be found on The Corbett Report’s September Open Thread. A thread by HomeRemedySupply, in particular, contains a long list of legal resources for Americans looking to combat vaccine mandates, including vaccine exemption documents and much more. The Corbett Report Show Notes also list a variety of resources.

Another resource is The Solari Report, where you can download a variety of forms. You can also pursue religious and medical exemptions. Just keep in mind that while this might temporarily save the livelihoods of some, it does virtually nothing to protect you or anyone else from tyranny in the long term.

2. Workarounds that don’t necessitate facing the problem head-on

This includes such things as setting up a network of like-minded people to create parallel economies and resources and getting involved in local politics, your children’s school board, where you can apply pressure and affect change from the inside. You can also sign petitions, such as the British togetherdeclaration.org.

3. Peaceful protests and demonstrations

There are mass protests taking place all over the world. Keep in mind that this strategy requires patience and above all persistence. Doing it once or twice will accomplish little.

The French have been taken to the streets by the hundreds of thousands every weekend for months. Our leaders are clearly not easily or rapidly swayed by these displays of solidarity but, over time, peaceful protests can be effective.

4. The ultimate solution: noncompliance

At the end of the day, the most effective long-term solution is mass noncompliance. It’s important to realize that it’s not our politicians who are running the show. They’re foot soldiers for unnamed, unelected globalists, which is why fighting in the political arena is unlikely to eliminate this threat over the long term.

As noted by Corbett, the technocrat globalists that are the real string-pullers are only able to do what they do because people tend to just go along with it. It’s that simple. If enough people don’t comply, their plans fall apart.

Summary

If millions of people refuse to comply with the mandates and the passports and then sue their employers when they’re fired, if millions force the establishment to go through that hassle, the establishment will eventually cave. As noted by Corbett, it would become mathematically impossible for them to enforce tyranny. Ultimately, that’s how we win.

Trump’s Legal “Operation Warp Speed” Jabs

Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution the time will come when medicine will organize itself into an undercover dictatorship. To restrict the art of healing to doctors and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic. Dr. Benjamin Rush

Freedom of choice must be brought to bear upon the US Medical practice. Congressman Phil Crane

One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine.  William Osler (1849-1919) Described as the Father of Modern Medicine

They do not cover the new variants; patients are failing on these vaccines. They’re being hospitalized and getting sick despite having had the vaccines. The vaccines at this point in time have amounted to record mortality and injury and should be considered unsafe and unfit for human use. Dr. Peter A. McCullough

 

Dr. Stephen Hahn, the mild-mannered former chief medical executive of the MD Anderson Cancer Center, became the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration shortly after the coronavirus broke out in China.

He quickly found himself in an uncomfortable position. The White House wanted an emergency approval of one of the vaccines being developed to treat COVID-19.  Under a massive and secretive government effort,“Operation Warp Speed,” was one of the most consequential public health decisions in American history. The FDA’s scientific determinations, as to whether a vaccine is safe and effective enough to give to millions of healthy Americans, are dicey enough. But Hahn, like so many top federal health officials, seemed to have found himself in a tightening vice.

President Trump, his chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and his son-in-law and special adviser, Jared Kushner, all called Dr. Hahn directly, urging him to accelerate emergency authorization of vaccines and treatments, i.e., Remdesivir.

If Hahn didn’t cave and accelerate the approval, potentially jeopardizing safety, the decision could be taken from the FDA and rammed through by Trump’s Health and Human Services Secretary, Alex Azar, the former President of Eli Lilly USA. Hahn also knew that if he stood up to Trump, he would be fired.  He was willing to be dismissed rather than serve as a presidential puppet.

On December 10, 2020, Dr. Hahn testified during a Senate “Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee Hearing” on the federal government response to COVID-19.  White House Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows had pressed Hahn to grant emergency use authorization (EUA) for Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine by the end of the day on December 11, 2021.

Biopharmaceutical History

The history of all four pharmaceutical companies involved in creating the COVID-19 jab is certainly not pretty.  America’s Medical Mafia: Biopharmaceutical Companies, written in May of this year, exposed the past of these companies and the many lawsuits against them.  Because the COVID vax is a EUA, it is protected from lawsuits by the federal government via the PREP Act signed into law by President George W. Bush.

The US Government has a secret history of grisly experiments on animals and humans, and these COVID jabs are no different; Americans are human lab rats.  In 2010, I wrote a ten-part article entitled, American Citizens as Guinea Pigs. Part two included the detrimental polio vaccine tainted with Simian Virus-40 which causes soft tissue cancers and is genetically passed.  It was never pulled from the market.

Here is a partial list of the many failed drugs taken off the market after dangerous side effects or deaths.  This does not include the 1976 swine flu vaccine pulled after 25 to 50 deaths.

Trump Promotes Vax/Boosters

If you’ve had the CCP virus, you have lifetime immunity as evidenced in 140 studies.  You do not need the Sars-coV-2 jabs or any of the boosters.  Dr. Peter McCullough states, “Once and done.”  There is no need to worry about getting the virus again.

Dr. McCullough writes that there are risks for those who have recovered from the CCP virus who then receive the Sars-coV-2 jabs.  Medical research concludes that the COVID-19 jabs are dangerous for those who have already had the virus and have recovered with inferred robust, complete, and durable immunity.  A medical study of United Kingdom healthcare workers who had already had COVID-19 and then received the vaccine found that they suffered higher rates of side effects than the average population.

So why has former President Trump taken both jabs and now the booster when he obviously recovered from the virus while he was still the 45thpresident?  Or did he take them?  Did he get the placebo instead?  Doesn’t he have physicians who will tell him the truth? Doesn’t he do any research?  Doesn’t he read? Why wasn’t he and his family put on Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin to keep them from ever contracting the virus?  Where was Dr. Scott Atlas with this important information, or did Trump rebuff him?  There are simply too many unanswered questions and too many statements by Trump that are untrue.

Trump tells us we’re playing right into their hands when we doubt the vaccine. Whose hands? He made the remarks during a live event with former Fox News pundit Bill O’Reilly. “We did something historic, we saved tens of millions of lives worldwide,” said Trump, before going on to credit the vaccine for preventing a repeat of the Spanish flu, which infected nearly a third of the world and killed as many as 100 million people.  The reality is the carnage from the lethal injections will make the 1917 flu pale in comparison.

The comparison is somewhat alarmist given that the Spanish flu had a 2.5% global mortality rate, which is substantially larger than Sars-coV-2’s actual mortality rate when you discount the many PCR false positive tests.  Many who had bacterial pneumonia and could have been saved with antibiotics were left to die because C-19 was diagnosed, and that’s not even mentioning the worthless stakeholder/medical protocols used on C-19 hospital patients.

Despite Trump’s glorification of the vax, he said it shouldn’t be mandatory.  Well, it isn’t mandatory for federal politicians and stakeholders, and the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens crossing our southern border.

When interviewed by Candace Owens, our 45th president claimed no one had been hurt by these jabs, when that is just a flat-out lie!  Over 111 airline pilots are dead from the jab, over 75 sports figures have died on the fields, young men are getting myocarditis, which destroys their heart muscle with inflammation.  Even Trump’s buddy, Franklin Graham ended up with pericarditis.  Graham told us we all should get the vax, that if Jesus were here, he’d get the vax.  What absolute total rubbish!

Trump should take a look at the Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System (VAERS) numbers out by Lifesite News from Dec. 14, 2020, to Dec. 10, 2021.  Only one percent is reported, so multiply the numbers by 100 and you’ll get the actual death and adverse effect figures since the clot shot came out.

To top it off, Trump echoes the commie Pravda media and tells Candace that 90% of the people in hospitals are unvaccinated when exactly the opposite is true.  Those in the hospital sick with Sars-coV-2 are jabbed with one or all of the clot shots including the booster, but if you’ve had the jabs within the last two weeks, hospitals count you as unvaxed.  And many get sick or die within the first two weeks after the inoculation.  Trump is spewing information from CNN, MSNBC, Fauci, and the stakeholders.

There has never been a vaccine for a virus!  We know this is not a real vaccine!  Why would Trump promote such a thing?  Is it pride?  That’s the only thing that makes sense. He keeps lauding the fact that he and he alone created “Operation Warp Speed” and saved the country from COVID…a virus 99.8% recover from.  We all know, “Pride goeth before the fall.”

COVID Jabs are Shielded

Take note that the federal government shields Pfizer/Moderna/J&J from liability and has given them billions of dollars and is forcing Americans to take their product. But they won’t let you see the data supporting its safety/efficacy. Just who does the government work for?

The FDA has asked a federal judge to make the public wait until the year 2076 to disclose all of the data and information it relied upon to license Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. That is not a typo. It wants 55 years to produce this information to the public.  It’s been 58 years since John F. Kennedy was assassinated and even Donald J. Trump did not release the truth to the public.

As explained in this article, the FDA repeatedly promised “full transparency” with regard to Covid-19 vaccines, including reaffirming “the FDA’s commitment to transparency” when licensing Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.

More than 30 academics, professors, and scientists from this country’s most prestigious universities requested the data and information submitted to the FDA by Pfizer to license its COVID-19 vaccine.

The FDA’s response?  It produced nothing.  In September, Attorney Aaron Siri’s firm filed a lawsuit against the FDA on behalf of this group to demand this information.  To date, almost three months after it licensed Pfizer’s vaccine, the FDA still had not released a single page; finally it released under 100 pages which you can read here.

Support For Trump

I know in my heart the 2020 election was rigged, that Donald J. Trump won the election ok, hands down.  Our 45th president did many wonderful things for this country, and we had a four-year Nineveh.  (If you don’t know the story, read the book of Jonah in the Old Testament; it comes right after Obadiah, and right before Micah and is important history.)

My 2016 support for Donald Trump never wavered.  I wrote article after article supporting him, two of which he actually used in rallies and the first one helped him to get rid of Jeb Bush.  The second article he used at a rally in Alabama explaining why the media is allowed to lie about public figures.  Why Alabama?  Because that’s where these legal suits started and then ended with the Supreme Court decision in NYTs v. Sullivan.

The mere fact that it took President Trump four years to realize just exactly who and what his Vice President really was, and who and what his Senior Counselor, Kellyanne Conway was…tells me the man has little discernment as to those who are really on his side. Pence sent Trump to controlled-opposition Heritage Foundation and Conway sent him to the Federalist Society, both of whom steered Trump to Supreme Court nominees who, we now know, are anything but conservative.  Conway and Pence have been friends for years and have family who are intermarried.  They worked together.

Pence was given challenge after challenge by Trump, and failed at every one of them, including being in charge of the Coronavirus Task Force.  He gave us Fauci, Birx, and Redfield and they destroyed our economy and Trump…just as their handlers planned.  Read Pence’s history… Link, Link, Link, Link.

On January 6th, 2021, Pence stabbed Trump in the back and the Republic in the heart.  Finally, after four years, Trump saw the real face of his Vice President…one who had no problem elbow bumping with Pelosi.

Throughout Trump’s administration, he never chose people outside the Deep State.  He hired from the swamp over and over and over again.  He took Chris Christie’s suggestion and hired Christopher Wray as FBI Director.  Then he listened to Attorneys Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing and hired Deep Stater Bill Barr as Attorney General.

Only once did he hire outside the swamp when he appointed Lt. General Michael T. Flynn as National Security Advisor.  General Flynn was his finest choice and was terminated within weeks by the deceit and duplicity of the FBI and their backdoor into Pence’s office.  Pence’s Chief of Staff was Josh Pitcock whose wife worked for Peter Strzok and Lisa Page allegedly checking Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Trump listened to Deep Stater Pence rather than the General who had decades of intel knowledge.  He needed General Flynn, but he ended up with Deep Staters in that very important position over and over again.  Far too many people saw his choices as guided by those from the swamp and completely incompatible with Trump, which they proved to be.  A prime example is that Christopher Wray is still head of the FBI and Trump should have pulled his nomination during Wray’s Senate hearings.

Summary

Around the world, hundreds of thousands have died, not from Sars-coV-2, but from the messenger RNA vaccines, millions have suffered permanent disabilities and adverse effects.  The buck ultimately stops with Trump.  He chose to put Pence in charge of the Coronavirus Task Force, and Pence brought in the Deep State stakeholders. The NIH, FDA, CDC, or AMA never approved any early home treatment and banned long-approved safe and cheap drugs that would have cured.

People were told there was nothing to be done, go home…and when it got worse, they went to the hospital, were put on oxygen, and then ventilators, and 80% of them died.  The ultimate goal was the huge moneymaker for Big Pharma…the “vaccines.” Dr. McCullough tells us that 86% of the people who died of the virus could have been saved, but obviously, that was not the goal of the stakeholders.

Excuses for Trump can be made, yet the buck stops with him.  He was our commander in Chief.  There is no question that the guilt of negligence is Trump’s, but the guilt of homicide belongs to Big Pharma. They were the ones that knew what they were doing. Trump’s negligence was not blowing the whistle on them and firing Fauci and the heads of these fraudulent government entities. You can make the case of malicious contempt in the action of Fauci and the officials of Big Pharma, all of whom need to do time at the very least.  Trump keeps pushing the lethal vax, why? Is it pride alone?  Is it stupidity?  Or is it that he is not what he represented himself to be?

Would I ever support Trump again?  Only if he is man enough to admit that he made a mistake and provide leadership that results in correction. Repentance is the foundation of our Judeo-Christian faith.

U.S. Senate Is Up For Grabs In 2022: Can The GOP Win Back Control?

It’s still eleven months away. But it’s not too soon to begin measuring methods on the part of both parties: The Democrats to keep control of the Senate and the GOP to take control back!
Democrats are defending the narrowest of Senate majorities in 2022 as Republicans look to fight their way back into power after a series of crushing defeats. While Democrats are going on offense in a handful of states where GOP incumbents are retiring, the party is also facing strong national headwinds in their bid to hold onto the Senate. The party of a new president — in this case, President Biden — almost always loses ground in Congress in midterm elections.

Given Democrats’ slim Senate majority, control of the upper chamber is likely to come down to just a handful of states. Here are the 10 races that will decide the Senate majority next year:

Pennsylvania

With President Biden’s narrow victory in the state last year and the coming retirement of Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), Pennsylvania may well offer Democrats their best chance to pick up a new Senate seat in 2022. So far, more than half a dozen Democrats have entered the race to succeed Toomey, including Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, Rep. Conor Lamb (Pa.), and Montgomery County Board of Commissioners Chair Val Arkoosh. And while the Democratic primary field has yet to yield a clear front-runner, the Republican field is just as fluid.

Sean Parnell, who had won former President Donald Trump’s endorsement and was seen as the likely GOP front-runner, dropped out of the race last month amid a series of personal controversies, leaving a vacuum on the Republican side. The entrance of celebrity physician Mehmet Oz into the GOP primary in late November only served to shake up the race further.

Georgia

Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) is heading into 2022 fresh off a history-making victory in a January runoff, making the 2022 Senate contest in Georgia a test of whether Democrats can maintain their momentum in a state that has only recently become a battleground. Republicans argue, however, that the state still leans in their direction, especially in a midterm year that is expected to be unfriendly for Democrats.

Former football star Herschel Walker, who has high name recognition in the state as well as Trump’s endorsement, has emerged as the favorite for the GOP nomination. And while he still faces some primary opposition, top Republicans — including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) — have coalesced around Walker, seeing him as the best candidate to oust Warnock next year.

Given both Trump’s involvement in the race and Democrat Stacey Abrams’s entrance into the contest for Georgia governor, the 2022 Senate election in Georgia is quickly emerging as the epicenter of the battle for control of the upper chamber.

Arizona

Like Warnock, Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) is heading into his 2022 reelection bid having just run a competitive race in 2020, and he’s among the GOP’s top targets in the Senate. But before they can take on Kelly directly, Republicans will first have to resolve a relatively crowded primary.

While polling shows state Attorney General Mark Brnovich leading his rivals for the GOP nomination, Trump has somewhat complicated that picture by publicly taunting Brnovich for not doing more to reverse Biden’s win in Arizona in the 2020 presidential election. Trump also appeared at a fundraiser for another GOP candidate, Blake Masters, at Mar-a-Lago last month.

The eventual winner of the Republican primary will have to contend with Kelly, one of the most prolific fundraisers in the Senate, in the 2022 general election. Still, with Democrats facing tough national headwinds next year, Kelly’s seat is far from safe.

Wisconsin

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), one of the most despised figures by the left, hasn’t yet said whether he will seek another term in the Senate in 2022, leaving Wisconsin Republicans in limbo for the time being. The field of Democrats vying to take Johnson on, however, is vast. So far, Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes has led his top primary rivals in fundraising, while also picking up high-profile endorsements from the likes of Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Still, Wisconsin won’t hold its primaries until August, leaving the nominating contest far from settled. Meanwhile, Johnson indicated last month that he will make a decision on his political future soon. If Johnson chooses to seek another term, he’ll be the only GOP Senate incumbent to seek reelection in a state that Biden won in 2020.

Nevada

Former Nevada state Attorney General Adam Laxalt is the likely GOP favorite to challenge Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) next year. He’s already picked up the support of both Trump and McConnell and has the benefit of already having run statewide, both successfully and unsuccessfully. Democrats have been eager to cast Laxalt as a Trump acolyte who has backed the former president’s false claim that the 2020 election was rigged. They’re also quick to note that Laxalt lost his 2018 bid for the Nevada governor’s mansion.

Still, there’s little doubt that Nevada is in play for the GOP. Trump lost the state last year by only 2 points. At the same time, Republicans picked up some support among Latino voters in 2020, which could give Democrats a rockier path to victory next year.

North Carolina

Despite Trump’s victories in the state in 2016 and 2020, North Carolina remains nearly evenly split between the two parties statewide. At the same time, Sen. Richard Burr’s (R-N.C.) decision to retire after his current term expires in 2023 has created a classic battleground scenario.

While 2020 proved disappointing for North Carolina Democrats — Trump narrowly carried the state, while Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) beat Democrat Cal Cunningham in a hotly contested Senate race — the party is hoping to make a comeback in 2022, even in the face of national challenges for Democrats.

For now, the Republican primary field is mired in division. Trump has endorsed Rep. Ted Budd (R-N.C.) for the GOP Senate nomination, but former Gov. Pat McCrory is putting up a tough fight. Another GOP candidate, former Rep. Mark Walker (N.C.), is considering a possible run for the House instead, though he has said he will remain in the Senate contest for the time being.

Former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Cheri Beasley is the favorite to win the Democratic nomination. State Sen. Jeff Jackson exited the Democratic field earlier this month and threw his support behind Beasley.

Ohio

Democrats, for the most part, have rallied around Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) as their choice to succeed retiring Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) next year, seeing him as the kind of candidate capable of replicating the success of Sen. Sherrod Brown (OH), the last remaining statewide elected Democrat in Ohio.

In the Republican field meanwhile, the candidates have lurched to the right in an effort to capitalize on Trump’s success in the state in 2016 and 2020. The former president has yet to endorse in the contest, but that hasn’t stopped several of the top candidates — including former state Treasurer Josh Mandel, entrepreneur and author JD Vance and former state GOP Chair Jane Timken — from fighting over their loyalty to Trump.

Still, Democrats have had a tough run-in Ohio in recent years, leading some to question its status as a political battleground, and for now, it’s still seen as leaning in the GOP’s favor in 2022.

New Hampshire

Republicans were dealt a blow last month when New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu announced that he would seek reelection next year instead of challenging Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH), denying Senate GOP leaders one of their top recruits of the 2022 elections.

Still, Republicans are bullish about their chances of ousting Hassan next year, even without Sununu in the race, arguing that she remains one of the most vulnerable Democratic Senate incumbents in the country. A University of New Hampshire poll conducted in October found Hassan’s favorability underwater at 33 percent to 51 percent.

Nevertheless, Republicans have yet to coalesce around a single candidate to take her on. Another potential heavyweight contender, former Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), also announced in November that she would not run.

Florida

Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) has emerged as the leading candidate to take on Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), giving Florida Democrats a high-profile name on the ticket in 2022.

But beating Rubio isn’t going to be an easy task. For one, Democrats have been dealt a series of stinging defeats in Florida in recent years, most recently in 2020 when Trump carried it by a more-than-3-point margin — a relative landslide by Sunshine State standards. And for the first time in modern history, Republican registered voters now outnumber Democrats.

Still, Demings is a prolific fundraiser, raking in nearly $8.5 million in the third quarter of 2021 alone. And despite the GOP’s newfound voter registration advantage, Republicans say they’re taking the Senate race seriously, well aware of how expensive and unpredictable Florida can be.

Missouri

Missouri has, for the most part, become safe territory for Republicans, handing Trump a 15-point win in the 2020 presidential election. While there’s a crowded field of Republicans seeking the nomination to succeed retiring Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) next year, many GOP operatives remain concerned that the state could become competitive for Democrats if disgraced former Gov. Eric Greitens wins the Republican nod.

Trump hasn’t endorsed in the Senate race yet, though he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of backing Greitens, who resigned from the governor’s mansion in 2018 following an investigation into allegations of sexual and campaign misconduct. There are still a handful of other Republicans seeking their party’s nomination to succeed Blunt, including Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Reps. Vicky Hartzler (MO) and Billy Long (MO).

Democrats are also contending with a primary of their own. Who emerges from the two nominating contests could determine just how competitive the Senate race in Missouri will be.

Summary

I have been struggling to believe there is REAL hope for a conservative Congress. Sadly, just because the GOP controls the House and the Senate is no sure bet for a conservative Congress that would allow the Peoples’ will impact their votes on various issues.

I am confident Americans will send far more Dems in the House home than necessary to give the majority to the Republican Party. I’m not so certain about the Senate.

I honestly question the entire election process for our national elections. There is NO doubt in my mind that the Left meddled in the 2020 election vote-counting system, at least in those five battleground states. And I’m confident that the leaders at the national level in the GOP are so committed to demanding truth in the 2022 midterms sufficient to let the election results mirror the exact votes cast by Americans. Say what they will, it is obvious the 2020 final results were manipulated.

Isn’t it odd that the far-left members of the Democrat Party have perfected a way to totally silence leaders on the other side regarding fiddling with those results? As Democrats are so successful doing, they silenced most of their GOP counterparts by calling anyone who questions that election as perpetrators of “The Big Lie.”

Isn’t that ironic: wanting to assure Americans that our elections are fair and the results are honest is somehow a “Big Lie?” But that is what gives me pause on truly believing that in November’s midterms we will see the total votes that are actually representative of the Peoples’ votes. And I’m usually not a pessimist.

I’m not a fatalist, but unless we get the upcoming election straight, we may be doomed — at least for the near future — to be governed by the hard left in Congress and whoever they instill in the presidency to replace Joe Biden.

We’ll just have to pray that the cheating will be so obvious it will throw the whole process into a massive election audit. It would probably take a while. But, even so, waiting for truthful and honest results would be worth a month or two!

Our COVID “Experts” Missed It And People Died

Yes, those are policemen on the streets in Seattle seeking out those who dare to NOT comply with the mask mandates issued by the 1918 medical “Experts” who told them all that death was certain if they refused to mask up. And “mask police” arrested, fined, and even threw mask offenders into jail for non-compliance!

When it comes to history, we are dependent on the “expert opinion.” History is usually written by the winners and shaped in real-time to match the narrative that helps the winners sell their current point of view—and that is the reason why it is so fascinating to discover facts and hypotheses that go against the grain, such as the hypothesis about aspirin poisoning killing potentially a large number of people during the 1918 pandemic.

The History of the 1918 Pandemic

The influenza pandemic of 1918 and 1919 is considered to be “the most deadly flu outbreak in history.” It is estimated that the Spanish flu pandemic killed 20 to 50 million people worldwide, including around 675,000 Americans (that’s according to the CDC; historical data is limited). The Census Bureau estimates that in 1918, the US population was just above 103 million people.

According to history.com, “The first recorded infection was in a U.S. Army private stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas on March 4, 1918. Although the United States and the other nations at war initially suppressed news of the flu … there was a sense that following these new health precautions was patriotic.” In America, local authorities rolled out various measures designed to stop the spread of the flu. The measures varied region by region and included “closing schools and places of public amusement, enforcing no-spitting ordinances, encouraging people to use handkerchiefs or disposable tissues and requiring people to wear masks in public.” In a number of American cities, mask-wearing ordinances were the centerpiece of the pandemic response.

Masks During the 1918 Pandemic

“As one Red Cross PSA put it, ‘the man or woman or child who will not wear a mask now is a dangerous slacker.’ This sense of wartime duty—and the fear of being seen as a ‘slacker’—may have motivated those who complied with mask orders in cities like San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, and Phoenix. Yet even though compliance was high, some complained that the masks were uncomfortable, ineffective or bad for business. Officials were caught in public without masks. And after the war ended, and there was no longer a sense that people should wear masks to keep the troops safe, some dissenters even formed an ‘Anti-Mask League’ in San Francisco.”

During the 1918 pandemic, mask-wearing ordinances were mainly issued on the west coast. Reportedly, most people complied at a rate of 4 out of 5 people. Public officials “framed anti-flu measures as a way to protect the troops from the deadly outbreak.” At the time, masks were made of gauze, and some people wore “fashion” masks that were even more porous. Some people poked holes in their masks for cigarettes. The authorities were pretty lax as far as what kind of mask people wore as long as there was something on their face. Those who broke the ordinances altogether were punished severely, at least this is what the reports are saying today.

“Cities that passed masking ordinances in the fall of 1918 struggled to enforce them among the small portion of people who rebelled. Common punishments were fines, prison sentences and having your name printed in the paper. In one horrific incident in San Francisco (described in the Atlantic article from March 19, 2020) a special officer for the board of health shot a man who refused to wear a mask as well as two bystanders.”

“This was far different from the treatment San Francisco’s leaders received when they didn’t comply. At a boxing match, a police photographer captured images of several supervisors, a congressman, a justice, a Navy rear-admiral, the city’s health officer, and even the mayor, all without masks. The health officer paid a $5 fine and the mayor later paid a $50 fine, but unlike other ‘mask slackers’  they received no prison time (not to mention no one shot at them).”

I find it interesting to compare the psychological methods used in 1918 to the psychological methods used in 2020 and on in the context of COVID. According to Influenza Archive, “the wearing of a mask immediately became of a symbol of wartime patriotism… By drawing on the rhetoric and imagery of the war effort and the heavy-handed patriotism that went along with it, city and state health officials hoped to inveigle if not outright bully residents into compliance.”

“For city officials, the importance was not so much in the specifics of mask construction but rather in compliance with the letter of the ordinance. While the vast majority of San Franciscans followed the mask order, police arrested one hundred and ten people on October 27 alone for failure to either wear or keep their masks properly adjusted.  Each was charged with ‘disturbing the peace,’ and the majority given a $5 fine, with the money to go to the Red Cross. Nine unfortunate souls arraigned before one particular judge were sentenced to short terms in the county jail. The next day, another group of fifty violators were arrested; five were sent to jail, and seven others given fines of $10 a piece. Arrests continued in the following days, with the majority receiving small fines and a few being sentenced to a few days in jail. As the city chief of police later told reporters, if too many residents were arrested and given jail terms for failure to wear their flu mask, he would quickly run out of space in his cells.” 

It is also interesting to look at how in 1918, like today, it was more about the formal presence of a piece of cloth on the face than it was about stopping the virus. “Many of the masks were constructed of dubious materials even more porous and ineffective than the standard surgical gauze most often used. Health officials and various mask ‘experts’ touted the effectiveness of all sorts of materials. The San Francisco Chronicle described some city residents as wearing masks ranging from standard surgical gauze to creations resembling nosebags, from the Turkish-inspired muslin yashmak veil to flimsy chiffon coverings draped lazily across the mouth and nose. Some wore ‘fearsome-looking machines like extended muzzles’ on their faces as they walked the streets and shopped in downtown stores.’”

Mask Science From Back in the Day

While politicians in some cities were enforcing porous masks in the name of patriotism and the public good—and the police were jailing dissenters—the scientists debated the value of masks for preventing the flu. For example, this study from back in the day stated the following:

“The failure of the mask was a source of disappointment, for the first experiment in San Francisco was watched with interest with the expectation that if it proved feasible to enforce the regulation the desired result would be achieved. The reverse proved true. The masks, contrary to expectation, were worn cheerfully and universally, and also contrary to the expectation of what should follow under such circumstances, no effect on the epidemic curve was to be seen. Something was plainly wrong with our hypothesis.”

All in all, the study came to the following conclusion:

  1. Gauze masks exercise a certain amount of restraining influence on the number of bacteria-laden droplets possible of inhalation.
  2. This influence is modified by the number of layers and fineness of the mesh of the gauze.
  3. When a sufficient degree of density in the mask is used to exercise a useful filtering influence, breathing is difficult and leakage takes place around the edge of the mask. 
  4. This leakage around the edges of the mask and the forcible aspiration of droplet laden air through the mask is sufficient to make the possible reduction in dosage
    of infection not more than 50 percent effective.
  5. It remains for future controlled experiments in contagious disease hospitals to determine whether the wearing of masks of such texture as to be reasonably comfortable are effective in diminishing the incidence of infection.
  6. Masks have not been demonstrated to have a degree of efficiency that would warrant their compulsory application for the checking of epidemics.

Aspirin Overdoses

In 2009, Karen M. Starko, an American epidemiologist, published an interesting paper titled, “Salicylates and Pandemic Influenza Mortality, 1918–1919 Pharmacology, Pathology, and Historic Evidence.” Her paper received positive feedback in the media and was even written about in the New York Times in the same year she published the paper.

A direct quote from the New York Times:

“What raised Dr. Starko’s suspicions is that high doses of aspirin, amounts considered unsafe today, were commonly used to treat the illness, and the symptoms of an aspirin overdose may have been difficult to distinguish from those of the flu, especially among those who died soon after they became ill. Some doubts were raised even at the time. At least one contemporary pathologist working for the Public Health Service thought that the amount of lung damage seen during autopsies in early deaths was too little to attribute to viral pneumonia and that the large amounts of bloody, watery liquid in the lungs must have had some other cause.”

In the words of Dr. Starko, “The hypothesis presented herein is that salicylate therapy for influenza during the 1918–1919 pandemic resulted in toxicity and pulmonary edema, which contributed to the incidence and severity of early ARDS-like lungs, subsequent bacterial infection, and overall mortality. Pharmacokinetic data, which were unavailable in 1918, indicate that the aspirin regimens recommended for the ‘Spanish influenza’ predispose to severe pulmonary toxicity.”

“A confluence of events created a ‘perfect storm’  for widespread salicylate toxicity. The loss of Bayer’s patent on aspirin in February 1917 allowed many manufacturers into the lucrative aspirin market. Official recommendations for aspirin therapy at toxic doses were preceded by ignorance of the unusual nonlinear kinetics of salicylate (unknown until the 1960s), which predispose to accumulation and toxicity; tins and bottles that contained no warnings and few instructions; and fear of ‘Spanish’ influenza, an illness that had been spreading like wildfire.”

Dr. Starko proposed four lines of evidence to support the role of salicylate intoxication in 1918 influenza mortality: pharmacokinetics, mechanism of action, pathology, and the spate of official recommendations for toxic regimens of aspirin immediately before the October 1918 death spike.

Official recommendations for aspirin were issued on 13 September 1918 by the US Surgeon General, on 26 September 1918 by the US Navy, and on 5 October 1918 by The Journal of the American Medical Association. Recommendations often suggested dose regimens that today are known to be unsafe. “At the US Army camp with the highest mortality rate, doctors followed Osler’s treatment recommendations, which included aspirin, ordering 100,000 tablets. Aspirin sales more than doubled between 1918 and 1920.”

“The number of deaths in the United States increased steeply, peaking first in the Navy in late September, then in the Army in early October, and finally in the general population in late October. Homeopaths, who thought aspirin was a poison, claimed few deaths. Others may have suspected that aspirin was responsible. On 23 November 1918, Horder wrote in The Lancet that, for ‘intensely toxic cases…aspirin and all so-called febrifuge drugs must be rigidly excluded from the treatment’ (p 695).” 

According to Dr. Starko, “just before the 1918 death spike, aspirin was recommended in regimens now known to be potentially toxic and to cause pulmonary edema and may therefore have contributed to overall pandemic mortality and several of its mysteries. Young adult mortality may be explained by a willingness to use the new, recommended therapy and the presence of youth in regimented treatment settings (military). The lower mortality of children may be a result of less aspirin use… The occurrence of Reye syndrome-like illness before the 1950s is debated and consistent with the fact that children’s aspirin was not marketed until the late 1940s. Varying aspirin use may also contribute to the differences in mortality between cities and between military camps.”

The entire paper by Dr. Starko is fascinating, and I recommend that you read it and see for yourself. Looking back, it is hard to say to which extent precisely aspirin overdose was to blame compared to other factors, and what was more deadly—the epidemic in itself or the enthusiasm of the health officials—but the hypothesis definitely makes one question the very foundations of what we know as “true.” Again.

“Invisible Rainbow”

There is also a hypothesis by Arthur Firstenberg, the author of “Invisible Rainbow,” that needs to be mentioned. Firstenberg “traces the history of electricity from the early eighteenth century to the present, making a compelling case that many environmental problems, as well as the major diseases of industrialized civilization—heart disease, diabetes, and cancer—are related to electrical pollution.” That angle deserves a story of its own—and that’s regardless of how anyone feels about the heated argument between germ theory and the terrain theory. Germs or terrain, it is by now known very well known that electromagnetic pollution has a major impact on human cellular function and can impact human health. On the grounds of impacting the human immune system alone, it is worth investigating in earnest.

Personally, I suspect that when the censorship of the topic of the impact of electromagnetic pollution on human health finally goes the way of Teflon and asbestos, it will help us a lot.  Not that Teflon and asbestos have disappeared… in fact, asbestos is newly cool in the context of fighting the “climate emergency,” believe it or not.  But at least one can talk about Teflon and asbestos without being called a conspiracy theorist!

Summary

Why don’t our so-called COVID “Experts” refer to the numbers of similarities between the Spanish Flu pandemic and our 2021 COVID pandemic? We are told they are each “intellectual healthcare geniuses.” Yet, they have again and again led us down a garden path to a utopian world that will be “COVID-free” if only we listen to their every word and initiate to the letter their instructions. And when people of Earth follow their lead, we DON’T get well after we test positive for COVID-19 after doing our best to fall in line with their specific edicts.

My nephew informed us Sunday he tested positive for COVID-19. He is a picture of health. He’s a phenomenal athlete. He was named the “Gatorade Football Player of the Year” in Louisiana and played on two Louisiana State Champion high school football teams. He played quarterback at Yale University. He lives and works in New York in the entertainment industry. So he was vaccinated for COVID-19, has double-boosted, had COVID-19 once AFTER vaxxed. And he’s positive again!

Tens of millions of Americans and citizens of other countries are contracting second and third “breakthrough” COVID-19 infections. But if anyone dares to even whisper “the vaccines aren’t working,” you’re immediately branded as a conspiracy theorist and a “Trumpster” and sent to the back of the bus. So I’ll take the bull by the horns:

The vaccines are NOT working!

The “current” justification for the constant belittling of all “anti-vaxxers” consists of a way to make the breakthrough infections and severe sickness and even deaths that are rising daily in number are encompassed with this from the “Experts:” We know that the vaccines protect most people from getting sick from COVID-19. Yes, some who are vaccinated are going to test positive. But, if they’re vaxxed, their cases will be much milder and they certainly will not die.”

It’s as if our “experts” were actually alive and driving the narrative back in 1918 in the battle against the Spanish Flu!” It’s deja vu in 2021!

I’ll make a 2021 prediction to close this story. As cases continue to rise from the Omicron variant (and any others that show up), our government will find new justifications to further lockdown the American people forcing more and more reliance by average Americans on our government for EVERYTHING. By this time in 2022, we will be worse off than we are today as a nation by almost every measure. And it will NOT be because of illness and deaths, it will be because our federal government under this President will continue to find new ways to control the populace using fear as their number one weapon.

If we can dig into a bit of history and make the comparisons shown above, don’t you think Anthony Fauci and his assistant COVID-minions are not intimately aware of what happened and how it played out?

We MUST call out the 2021 COVID elites and force the truth to bypass the Social Media kings and Mainstream Media lapdogs of the Left and get the truth to ALL Americans. That’s our only hope.

Saturday Bullet Points: “Christmas Day, 2021!”

TruthNewsNetwork.org and “TNN Live!” are excited to have shared 2021 with all of you. You ARE our family! 2021 has been a year full of sadness, surprises, massive disease and death among Americans of every age, and the fear of never having comfort that those in authority over us have the expertise, understanding, and even a desire to honor the will of the People in governing this nation. But even with all of that, we celebrate today the fact that God came to Earth in the form of a baby to give us all opportunities to partner with Heaven to share the heartache and burdens that are no fault of our own and are very serious.

We’ve all worked together to make our lives better while praying daily for our nation and our leaders. Some voted for this President and some didn’t. But the partners of TruthNewsNetwork all understand that the U.S. stands or falls solely on the basis of our Americans’ response to EVERYTHING that happens in our government. You and others of our family have decided that this nation is worth saving! And we’re committed to trusting, praying, and believing for better things for the nation. The root of that is to pray for Joe Biden!

You may not have voted for Mr. Biden. And you may be prone to reject his every word and thought. That is allowed in this free nation: freedom of thought and expression. But know this: you may not like the pilot of the ship and want him gone. But why wish and hope for him to fail BEFORE WE LAND AT OUR DESTINATION! We all want this President to succeed in getting the United States to the next level while he’s in office.

Mary Ann and I along with all the others that appear in stories, interviews, and conversations at TruthNewsNetwork and “TNN Live!” are blessed to have you as family. And we wish you and yours’ a very Merry Christmas! We can’t wait to see what 2022 will look like and we certainly plan on sharing it with you!

 

You either feel like 2021 has flown by and you’re shocked we’re already at Christmas Day or you can’t believe it took so long for Christmas to get here! 2021 has been one of those years.

I imagine there are thousands of Americans who last Christmas never even considered their Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, or Sons, or Daughters would not be at the dinner table on this Christmas Day. COVID-19 and all things to do with it have taken the lives of hundreds of thousands during this year. Yes, there’s a sadness that naturally floods our hearts when we lose those we love. But 2021 has been uncharacteristically filled with dilemmas and sadness we never anticipated would change our lives in an instant — especially not as happened this year.

Today while you are bathed in sadness while staring at that Christmas tree without the presence of one or two of those who should be with you, let’s count the blessings that we DO have. It begins with the gift of life. Add to that the assurance that there IS a God who cares about everything in our lives — even the emptiness and sadness we labor under in the loss of loved ones. His Son came on this day two centuries-plus so that we could face situations like this past year with the knowledge that there’s eternal life out there for all those we lost and for us if we just turn to Him and ask for that promise to be fulfilled in our lives.

Let’s for one moment relish the memories of Christmases past and realize today is the first day of the remainder of our lives. And know this: “The Best Is Yet To Come!”

Let’s share our bullet points to catch up on the helter-skelter week.

Bullet Points

  • Did you expect Joe Biden to fulfill his campaign promises when he was elected? Do you remember what those promises to the American people were? Not many presidents have actually followed through on most of their campaign promises. To the surprise of millions, Donald Trump was actually successful in a greater way than most. Joe Biden: not so much. Do you remember that on his first day as President he issued an executive order to increase the production of tests for COVID-19? What happened to those tests? Today we face a shortage along with the most prevalent COVID variant to spread rapidly through the population. And we have NO tests! But, of course, there are reasons for that — or “excuses” if you’re Jen Psaki or President Biden. What are they? For complete details, click on this link:
  • How deadly is the Omicron variant? We’re not certain yet how it will impact humans. It’s still a bit early to have an accurate and full finding on that. We already know that it is — at least so far — the most easily transmissible of all the current strains. How dangerous is its infection impact is still uncertain. But one thing we can do is look to our east to see what’s happened with this and other variants before this and others invade North America. And the U.K. saw almost two million infections in just one week! For complete details, click on this link: 
  • There’s a mad dash by scientists to learn as much as possible as quickly as possible about this latest strain of COVID: the “Omicron” variant. Not much is known yet about its biological differences and similarities to its Big Brother versions that have flooded the globe. What we DO know is that, preliminarily, it appears to be far less deadly than at first expected. That’s great news! In the U.K. infections are high but hospitalizations and serious cases are far fewer and in less intensity than first feared. Its symptoms have been mild so far. But as we sit for our Christmas dinners today, there’s one thing that appears to happen that may signal those around your table to possibly have COVID’s Omicron strain. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Who can argue that our travel plans that we’ve taken for granted for decades have been turned upside down at the hands of COVID-19? Sadly, tens of thousands of Americans saw their holiday flights canceled at the last minute because of airline crew shortages as a direct result of the new Omicron variant. The Cruise industry was hit the hardest by the pandemic. Ships for more than a year sat empty because of the fears of passengers being in such close quarters with fellow tourists because of COVID-19. But ship travel resumed as COVID subsided: and just in time for the holidays! However, how things change and change quickly! More than 1,000 Americans are stuck onboard a cruise ship as Mexico refuses to allow them to disembark after 21 vaccinated crewmembers test positive for COVID! For complete details, click on this link:
  • We’ve watched in shock as President Biden almost daily shows a lack of cognitive ability that seems to get worse daily. And we’re not the only ones watching his mental decline. Leaders around the world are aghast at what they’re seeing from this President. The Mainstream Media have always given Democrats in leadership free passes for much of their problems. But now, even CNN has commented on Biden’s decline! Even the MSM is questioning every move Biden makes and also every promise. He’s promised to “quickly begin distribution” of 500 million COVID tests.” The problem is no one seems to accept that his promise can or will be fulfilled! For complete details, click on this link: 
  • Do you know who’s been surprisingly quiet during these months as the world has looked in on Biden’s actions? Certainly, every world leader watches. One of those heads of government has certainly kept Biden’s actions at the top of his conscience: Russian President Vladimir Putin. What do you think Putin feels about Biden’s ability to initiate any actions that may be necessary to keep Russia quiet on the world front? I’m not a foreign policy expert, but even I can see those thousands of Russian soldiers camped out at Russia’s border with Ukraine are there for a purpose. A process of trial and elimination can only tell us that Putin’s about to invade Ukraine! What can the U.S. to do if it happens? What WILL Joe Biden do if Putin pulls the trigger on that? For complete details, click on this link: 
  • Most Americans who use social media have probably felt the effects of the “fact-checkers” that determine what can and not be allowed on their various social media platforms. The uproar about these fact-checkers literally usurping the freedom guaranteed to us all in the First Amendment are gross violations of our rights. But as this year’s calendar pages have turned, more and more we discover that the fact-checkers need to be checked themselves. Why? Because their fact-checked results have very often been wrong themselves! For complete details, click on this link: 
  • One of the most egregious and totalitarian government shutdowns during 2021 was the almost-total lockdowns of religious services. Millions of Americans have for generations made church a staple for their families. But 2021 changed all that. As a result of the lack of freedom to worship in the church of one’s choice in 2021, church services and attendance are expected to reach record heights this season as COVID has somewhat subsided and we’re freer to attend church because of the past year. For complete details, click on this link: 
  • Most Americans have watched the results of the actions of this Administration as daily their actions show more and more disconnection with the American people. Subsequently, Americans expect some dramatic changes to happen in our upcoming elections to “right the ship.” Little did we know that Biden’s actions would be so sharp and so demonstrative so quickly! He’s changed the landscape of living in American quicker than any American thought possible! Subsequently, it is expected by a large majority of American voters that the midterm elections next year will most certainly give Republicans control of Congress. What will that mean? It at least means that Americans are watching this government’s actions and are determining on their own who are those responsible for this dramatic downturn in every area of life in the U.S. What will happen as a result? For complete details, click on this link: 
  • The southern border travesties that we’ve watched occur this past year are discouraging to most Americans. For the first time in U.S. history, a sitting President has dramatically thumbed his nose at the U.S. Constitution and the Rule of Law and has opened the floodgate to remain open allowing an untold number of illegals to enter our country. There’s NO one who knows the number of those who have come in nor what they have brought with them. From smuggled young children, drugs, and even guns and ammunition are discovered daily by border officials. But no one knows to what degree this has been occurring. This being allowed to happen with little or no accountability for the lawbreakers has taken a toll on many government officials in South Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. Sadly, they watch in horror to see a wave of suicides among National Guard troops caught up in this lawlessness. For complete details, click on this link: 

The “Christmas Thing!”

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV

For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.  Isaiah 9:6, KJV, Handel’s Messiah

It’s Christmas, with all the joy and frenzy and shopping, and food, and family gathering, and it’s the Celebration of our Saviour’s birth.  Can you say Hallelujah!  I love Christmas…I simply love it!

Christmas Cookies

Most folks know I own a wholesale commercial bakery and I’m very busy this time of year.  In September I start baking Christmas cookies to be shipped all over the country the Monday after Thanksgiving.  It is the part of my business that I enjoy the most.  I love creating the cookies, buying the boxes, ribbon, and ornaments for packing, and sending them to all the folks that look forward to them every year.  

It’s a labor of love, and I enjoy this part of the Christmas preparations the most.  That might sound crazy to some of you, but my great-great-grandfather was a restaurateur, confectioner, and amazing baker in Philadelphia, PA.  He also owned an ice cream shop along with his three restaurants.  G. Byron Morse actually developed the pinafore bread that became the Hoagie bun.  So, the baking gene runs in my blood.  This, however, is not what Christmas is all about…yet, it too is a part of the joyous celebration and the joy of giving.

Christmas Cards

Christmas cards are special for me.  Every year, the local Christian bookstore runs a 60% off sale on Christmas cards the day after Christmas.  Since I’ve lived all over the country, we send out over 100 cards every year, and we want them to express the truth of why we celebrate the birth of the Messiah.  So, I’m there at 7 a.m. the morning after Christmas.  

My sweet friends in Florida sent us a beautiful Christmas card this year that I want to share with you.  Like the cards I choose, this one relays the essence of Christmas…it was the Christ child, born for us, to die on a cross for our sins, so we could approach the throne of God with the blood of Jesus having washed away our sins, gone, not just covered over, but gone.  This card was so lovely in its message, I simply had to share it.  So here it is:

“Just A Little Donkey”

Just a little donkey, but on my back, I bore, The one and only Savior, the world was waiting for.  

Just a little donkey, but I was strong and proud–I gladly carried Mary through the chaos of the crowd.

I brought her to a stable where she made a tiny bed…A place for Baby Jesus to lay His little head.

I pray the world remembers that special Christmas night when just a little donkey carried Heaven’s Precious Light.   Rita S. Beer

I hope the sentiment in this card touches your heart as it touched mine. It is the story of the King of Glory who humbled Himself to come to earth as a baby, to die on the Cross for all of us.  The cards are special greetings to those we know and love who are brothers and sisters in the faith, and they are a part of Christmas, but not the full essence, just a part of the whole celebration of the King’s birth.

Decorations

There are not many places in America bereft of Christmas decorations, except perhaps Dearborn, Michigan. Many of the yards and windows of homes are adorned with lights and wreaths put up around Thanksgiving.  Holley Gerth wrote about the wonderful Christmas Wreath:

 

“The Christmas wreath is more than just a decoration…it’s a special reminder of Jesus, the reason for our celebration.  The circle of a Christmas wreath is a never-ending ring, a reminder of eternal love from our Lord and King.  The Christmas wreath is a sign of welcome, inviting all to enter in... a reminder of Christ’s invitation for all to come to Him.  The middle of a Christmas wreath is a bare and empty space, a reminder of what life would be without Christ’s love and grace.  So, each time you see a Christmas wreath hanging from a door, may your heart rejoice in the One that Christmas is truly for!”

When I was a child, my mother and I would get on the train and go into Chicago to see the decorated store windows on State Street; Marshall Fields, Wieboldt’s, Carson, Pirie, Scott and Company, Goldblatt’s, and so many more.  In the 1950s, there were amazing crèche displays in the store windows…and of course Santa and the reindeer.  The crowds were enormous.  Decorations were everywhere.  

When I see all the homes alight with decorations, I think of them as candles on the Saviour’s birthday cake.  This is another part of the celebration of Messiah’s birth, and it speaks to believers and non-believers…”We have lighted up our homes to celebrate the birth of the Saviour of the World.”  

Shopping

Then there’s the shopping.  Since I have owned my bakery for 23 years, my shopping has to be finished before Thanksgiving and ready to ship to an out-of-town family the Monday after Thanksgiving.  I really don’t like to shop during December, especially on the weekends, and I don’t do Black Fridays…not ever.  

Having said that, the joy of the celebration is in the majority of stores.  The time goes quickly for employees when it’s busy and they all seem to be smiling and happy and saying, Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas.  Of course, I prefer Merry Christmas, but Happy Holidays is from the original, Happy Holy Days. So, when I’m wished “Happy Holidays,” I always answer them with, “Merry Christmas to you and Happy Holy Days!”

This is the south and we’re in the buckle of the Bible Belt, so everyone smiles!  Shopping is the part of Christmas where we buy gifts to give to our family, friends, and those less fortunate, to share the love of the Christ child whose birth we celebrate.  

One of my wonderful Christian cyber buds sent me a short email of vast import.  When you’re out doing the hectic lastminute shopping thing, remember this story:

“Who Started This Christmas Stuff?”

A woman was out Christmas shopping with her two children. After many hours of looking at row after row of toys and everything else imaginable; and after hours of hearing both her children asking for everything they saw on those many shelves, she finally made it to the elevator with her two kids.

She was feeling what so many feel during the holiday season time of the year – overwhelming pressure to go to every party, every housewarming, taste all the holiday food and treats, getting that perfect gift for every single person on our shopping list, making sure we don’t forget anyone on our card list, and the pressure of making sure we respond to everyone who sent us a card.

Finally, the elevator doors opened, and there was already a crowd in the car. She pushed her way into the car and dragged her two kids in with her and all the bags of stuff. When the doors closed, she couldn’t take it anymore and she stated, “Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be found, strung up and shot.”

From the back of the car, everyone heard a quiet, calm voice respond, “Don’t worry, we already crucified Him.”

For the rest of the trip down in the elevator, it was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop. This year, don’t forget to keep “the One who started this whole Christmas thing” in your every thought, deed, and word. If we all did it, just think of how different this whole world would be.

It’s not simply the baking and cooking, it’s not the cards or the decorations, it’s not the shopping or the family gatherings, it’s all of these things! It’s because this is the month of the birthday celebration of the King of Glory, the Messiah.  

Ahh, yes, the “Christmas thing.”  The “Christmas thing” is Christ.  The “Christmas thing” is the Saviour of the world, the “Christmas thing” is that He came and died for all of us, the “Christmas thing” is the joy in knowing that we have everlasting life because the perfect, sinless, creator of the world shed His blood for us, the “Christmas thing” is that God loves us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to die for us.  The “Christmas thing” is that we are to celebrate His birth with joy, love, peace, kindness, and gentleness.  And we’re to share our reason for that joy!

So, for the month of December…you might want to answer those who say Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas with a resounding, Happy Birthday Jesus! That’s the “Christmas thing!”

Warning: COVID-19 “May Be Deadly”

In this interview, Steve Kirsch, executive director of the COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund, reviews some of the COVID jab data he’s presented to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention during various meetings.

For example, during the September 17, 2021, FDA VRBPAC (Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee) meeting, Kirsch cited data suggesting one in 317 boys aged 16 to 17 will get myocarditis from the shots, and after a third booster, that number may be even higher. He also cited data showing the Pfizer shot kills far more people than it saves. I’ll provide more details about that below.

Kirsch didn’t come into this due to some preconceived opinion about vaccines. He and his family have all received two doses of the COVID jab. It wasn’t until after the fact that he started hearing about problems from others that he started taking deep dives into the data. He explains:

“After I got vaccinated, a woman asked me, ‘Should I get vaccinated?’ And I said, ‘Of course, you should. This is the safest thing ever. Nobody’s died and there are no side effects. You’ve got to get this modern technology.’ I’m singing from the hymn book.

And then she said something that threw me off course because I said, ‘Why are you asking such a stupid question?’ And she said, ‘Well, three of my relatives got the vaccine and they died within a week.’ I said, ‘No, no, that can’t be true. There’s no way that can happen.’

I’m trying to convince her that she’s mistaken, that it must have been something else. I wrote her saying, ‘Statistically, you can’t have three people dying from the vaccine, which doesn’t kill anyone.’ And she wrote back and she said, ‘Yeah, but they’re dead.’

That was a game-changing moment for me … but I was still in denial … I was operating [from the position] that the FDA is still operating the same (conservative) way (they used to before), but they’re not … nor did I understand that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now mission driven, and the mission is to get a needle in every arm. My trust was in the agencies.

The next incident involved my carpet cleaner, Tim Damroth. He showed up wearing a mask. And I’m saying, ‘Hey, you should all get vaccinated. Once you get vaccinated you don’t have to wear a mask.’ And he said, ‘Well, I did get vaccinated, but I had an extreme reaction. I had a heart attack two minutes after I got injected.’ He also described that his wife had [developed] Parkinson’s-like symptoms. Her left hand was shaking uncontrollably.”

The Price Truth-Tellers Pay

The data are ultimately what convinced him that people must be told the truth about these shots because, without that, they cannot give informed consent. He’s sacrificed a lot to do just that, including professional relationships and millions of dollars in lost income.

“I basically put my life on hold and started looking in the various databases and talking to people to understand what was going on,” Kirsch says. “And every place I looked, (the truth) became more clear to me. And so, on May 25, 2021, I wrote this 250-page article for TrialSiteNews. It may be the longest article for TrialSiteNews ever published.

When I wrote that article, within a week, every member of my (COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund’s) scientific advisory board quit — there were 14 scientists from all over the United States and in different fields with different expertise. They said I was ‘an evil person’ and that they never wanted to talk to me again in their life.

I pleaded with them, saying, ‘Look, if I’ve got the analysis wrong, then tell why can’t you tell me where I got it wrong.’ And they wouldn’t say anything. They just said, the vaccines are safe and I should be ashamed of myself.”

Kirsch also created and submitted a 177-page PDF slideshow to the October 26, 2021, VRBPAC hearing, titled, “Questions About the COVID Vaccine.” It’s an absolute treasure trove of information and I would encourage you to review this great resource that he is updating in real-time.

VAERS Data Likely Off by Factor of 41

In his video, “Vaccine Secrets: COVID Crisis,” the first episode of “The False Narrative Takedown Series,” Kirsch explains how to estimate COVID jab mortality, which he and a team of statisticians have done based on a variety of sources, including but not limited to the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS).

Kirsch estimates VAERS reporting is off by a factor of 41, and that anywhere from 150,000 to 300,000 Americans have died from the COVID shots.

“We looked at eight different ways and VAERS is just one of the ways. So, when people say, ‘You can’t use VAERS for this, you can’t [calculate] causality [based on VAERS data], I’m saying, ‘Fine. We got the same answer using seven other ways.

In the VAERS analysis, we determined that VAERS was under-reported by a factor of 41, which is quite reasonable … Ten years ago we had a system where we could actually discover all the unreported things in VAERS, and they discovered VAERS was severely underreported by as much as 95 times. Vaccines that we thought were safe, they’re not safe at all. So, what did they do? They killed the project.

So, the reason that we have such a bad system today is that it is intentional. If we had a good system, it would show all the flaws for all of these vaccines that we’ve been giving people.”

The system is clearly intentionally designed from a technical standpoint to radically decrease the number of cases entered. It takes more than 30 minutes to complete a single report and you can’t save it until completed, so if you walk away and get timed-out, you have to start all over.

Kirsch knows a neurologist in California who claims to have 2,000 COVID jab-injured patients (out of a client base of 20,000), but she’s only filed two reports to VAERS. She doesn’t have time for the rest. So, she’s under-reporting by a factor of 1,000. Also, while doctors are required by law to file adverse event reports, there’s no enforcement and no punishment for not filing.

It is also important to note that no one is paid to enter this data. That could be a part-time job for most clinicians, were they to responsibly report all the side effects and deaths.

COVID Shots Are Far Deadlier Than the Infection

Overall, his team’s calculations suggest we’re killing 411 people per million doses (and remember Moderna and Pfizer are both two-dose regimens), worldwide. And that’s just the short-term mortality. We still have no concept of how these shots might impact mortality in the longer term.

To put things into further perspective, October 21, 2021, an Italian investigation found that by changing the COVID mortality definition to only include cases where COVID-19 was the primary cause of death and there were no comorbidities decreased the death toll by 97%, from 130,000 to fewer than 4,000.

Kirsch believes the real death tally from COVID-19 in the U.S. may be about 50% of the reported number. This means about 380,000 Americans died from COVID-19 (rather than with COVID), whereas the COVID “vaccine” has killed as many as 300,000. In other words, it’s possible that the cure may be worse than the disease.

COVID Shot Is the Deadliest ‘Vaccine’ Ever Created

It gets even worse though. In Pfizer’s children’s trial, one of the participants, 12-year-old Maddie De Garay, suffered a number of devastating events, including paralysis. This side effect was misreported, however, and put down as “abdominal pain.” Neither the FDA nor the CDC has investigated the case, despite promising to do so. Pfizer has refused to investigate it as well.

In the youth trial, 1 out of 1,131 children was paralyzed. Meanwhile, Pfizer’s adult trial shows that the shot saves one COVID death for every 22,000 fully-vaccinated people. But for children, it’s estimated we need to fully vaccinate over 630,000 kids to save one life. That means we may permanently disable as many as 557 kids per life saved. Meanwhile, there’s not a single report of a healthy child dying from SARS-CoV-2 infection anywhere in the world.

This means the number needed to vaccinate to save one otherwise healthy child from COVID death is actually infinite, as they’re not dying from COVID to begin with. There simply is no doubt that in children, the COVID shot is no benefit and all risk. Kirsch notes:

“Dr. Paul Offit was interviewed 20 years ago on ‘CBS 60 Minutes,’ and he said the smallpox vaccine is so dangerous that we would never consider doing that in modern times. It’s the most dangerous vaccine ever invented … and the smallpox vaccines only kills one person per every million-people vaccinated, which is a lot.

You vaccinate 300 million people, you’re going to kill 300 people. That is unacceptable according to Offit, but he just voted for a vaccine that kills 822 people per million fully vaccinated [assuming a two-dose regimen].

That means these COVID vaccines are over 800 times deadlier than the deadliest vaccine in human history. So, this isn’t a close call. These vaccines are the deadliest vaccines ever created by man. And they’re promoted as safe and effective.”

COVID Shot Gets Deadlier the Younger You Are

Based on a request from Dr. Peter McCullough, Kirsch also analyzed COVID jab mortality based on age using the VAERS data. For 80-year-olds, he found we kill two people to save one. For 20-year-olds, we kill six to save one.

The younger you are, the greater the risk. The Kostoff analysis found this general pattern as well. Ronald N. Kostoff is a research affiliate in Gainesville, Virginia, who in 2016 wrote an expert review on the under-reporting of adverse events in the biomedical literature.

In a review published in October 2021, Kostoff found five elderly are killed by the shots for each elderly person saved, and the ratios get worse as you go down in age. That said, “the vaccines don’t make sense for any age group, which is exactly the same thing I found independently,” Kirsch says.

“Nobody should get these vaccines. There is no cost-benefit analysis that I have seen that shows it is beneficial … I mean, you’re not going to take an intervention that is just as likely to kill you as to save you.

You want to take an intervention which is at least 10 times more likely to save you than to kill you, because it’s an optional intervention. What kind of business do you have taking an intervention which has a marginal benefit for a completely unknown short- and long-term risk profile?

The other thing I want to say is that, the societal benefit argument, people are saying, ‘You’re selfish because you didn’t get vaccinated.’ Well, that’s irrational.

Have you ever seen a CDC analysis showing you the societal benefit of being vaccinated? It doesn’t exist. And there’s a reason it doesn’t exist, because the societal benefit would be so tiny that it’s ludicrous. Today, we know the vaccinated are as likely to spread the virus as the unvaccinated. So where is the societal benefit?

If there are no downsides [to the shot], then people would say, sure, maybe there’s some societal benefit. I’ll do that. But here your life is at stake and the data show that roughly 1 in 1,000 will get killed by these vaccines. So, if I say, hey, suppose sacrificing your life could save 100 person years (e.g., 10 people given another 10 years of life).

When I asked this live in a clubhouse room with a few hundred people, nobody raised their hand to volunteer to do that — to sacrifice their life to save 100 person years. And I said, ‘OK, what about 1,000 person years? If you could sacrifice your life to save people 1,000 person years, would you do it? Nobody would do that. It’s nonsensical.

We have a constitutional right to life … And I don’t think you’re being selfish about it. You have a family, you have friends, you have loved ones, you have people you interact with … Why would I ask you to sacrifice your life? To save people you don’t know?

Everybody has their own special way that they contribute to society. Why would we ever ask somebody to [sacrifice their life for a potential social benefit]? Maybe we should ask Joe Biden, ‘Joe, if you could give up your life to save 1,000 person-years, would you do that?’ It would be very interesting to see what he says.”

CDC Performs Statistical Magic, Again

Countering all of this data we have a recent CDC analysis, which concluded that people who get the COVID shot are two-thirds less likely to die of any cause.

“I sent Janet Woodcock my deck of 180 questions. I said, ‘Janet, I bet you can’t answer any of these 180 questions. Doesn’t this concern you?’ She sends back an email saying, ‘Look at the CDC analysis, showing that after you get the jab, there’s this two-thirds drop in mortality.’

My friends and I, when we saw in that paper, we were laughing our heads off over here. The stats on 18- to 44-year-olds [show] 35% die from accidents. The rest die from disease — cancer, heart disease, whatever.

The only way to get a two-thirds reduction [in all-cause mortality] is if nobody dies from anything anymore — any disease — and we also reduce the number of accidents that they have … This is the immortality drug. All kidding aside, there’s no mechanism of action that could possibly justify that people are going to be better off from a health perspective after getting these vaccinations. Zero.

Nothing is improved. You are not immortal. You are just the opposite; your immune system is compromised. You’re also more likely to get COVID. In the U.K., the government numbers show that 40-year-olds, after the honeymoon period is over, were more than twice as likely to get infected if they were vaccinated.

In the U.S., you have hospitals where you have a 50% community vaccination rate and the hospital admissions are 90% vaccinated people. You can’t make these statistics up.

In fact, the CDC was confronted by these statistics by Aaron Siri, who wrote about it on his substack, and they just ignored them. So, they make up stuff [and] this paper shows the CDC can put out anything and as long as it has that little CDC logo on it, people are going to believe it no matter how ridiculous it is.

And nobody in the medical community criticized it. I wrote a very popular article about it on my substack entitled, ‘FDA Discovers Fountain of Youth.’”

Biggest Fraud in History

All things considered, the COVID vaccination campaign is the biggest medical fraud in modern history. As Kirsch says, it’s a house of cards, held together by belief in data that aren’t there and avoidance of confronting the safety signals in the VAERS system and other studies that don’t comport with the narrative.

They even avoided the determination of one of the world’s top pathologists (Peter Schirmacher) that at least 30% to 40% of the deaths two weeks post-vaccine were caused by the vaccine. They still claim there are no deaths that have been attributed to the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. That’s ridiculous.

“I’ve never seen anything like this, and I’ve never heard of anything like this because the conspirators who are telling this false narrative are all the three-letter agencies under the Department of Health and Human Services — the FDA, CDC and NIH.

They’re all in on it, Congress is all in on it, mainstream media’s all in on it, and the medical community is all in on it. They can’t afford to back down now because they are in it too deep. It would be too embarrassing to them.

We have been saying for months, ‘You guys have to look at the VAERS data,’ and they have been ignoring and censoring us rather than engaging us with dialogue — and none of these people will engage us in dialogue.

We tell the so-called ‘fact checkers’ where to look and what questions to ask the CDC to verify our stories and they never follow up. The ‘fact checkers’ all refuse to get on a recorded phone or Zoom call since they don’t want to be exposed as being biased.

One strategy for changing this is that we’re going to run a series of ads. Each of the ads will feature a unique personality, like a Dr. Peter McCullough, a sports figure, doctors, victims and so on. They’ll relate their personal anecdotes for what’s happened to them. And they will say, ‘Look, before you get vaccinated, check the facts. Listen to the other side of the story.’

It’s a reasonable ask. And we’ll direct them where to go to hear the side of the story that the mainstream media aren’t allowing them to hear. And then we let them make up their own mind. People aren’t hearing the other side of the story, and the White House is helping suppress it. When the White House has a hit list of censorship, it’s very clear what is going on. When in history have we done that?

Do you ever see McCullough on CNN? No, because they want to give you only one side and they’re deliberately giving you only one side of it, and they know it. If they want to give the impression they are balanced, they’ll pick someone who isn’t an expert and interview them. Robert Malone is never going to be on CNN. Malone invented the mRNA vaccine and yet he doesn’t qualify to talk about it on CNN?

America used to be a country that embraced a diversity of views, and you had freedom of speech, you had freedom to express your opinion. You had the freedom to tell the truth. No more. That freedom has been taken away.

If you don’t agree with the mainstream narrative, you’re silenced. And so, what we’re going to do is run the series of ads, and we’ll only be able to run it on alternate media because the mainstream media won’t run our ads because the ads encourage people to hear the other side of the issue.”

This COVID Madness Began With Clinton, Obama, and Now Biden With Fauci

The questions about the origin of COVID-19 have still not been answered. Well, that’s not necessarily the truth: the source (or sources) have not yet been “confirmed.”

Leading the pack in the field of possible “origins” is the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China. Even if that laboratory is not THE source of the virus, that lab figures heavily into the equation of COVID-19’s spread around the globe.

Little by little, facts about that lab through the years and its many U.S. connections keep showing up. At the same time, little by little, we are informed that numerous U.S. universities with extensive virology laboratory testing facilities have been sources for “experimentation” with various viruses, included the SARS-CoV-2 that is the virus that morphs into COVID-19. Generous “contributions” to those universities by the Chinese government have opened doors to Chinese scientists to work inside these U.S. laboratories on a bevy of projects. As it has been revealed, some of those are “gain-of-function” research operations.

Though Dr. Anthony Fauci vehemently denies that gain-of-function research has ever taken place on his watch, and indeed, NIAID has not funded such, it has been revealed that U.S. tax dollars HAVE been used to fund gain-of-function research.

The storyline spun by Fauci and other “experts” as to the source of Sars-CoV-2 points to bats as the source to cloud the picture even further. We are told that there are massive bat colonies close to Wuhan. Those bats carried Sars-CoV-2 and infected some animals sold at a nearby wet market in Wuhan. Fauci et al propose that as its source. However, NO bat from that area has been found to have the COVID-19 virus.

What About Those Chinese Scientists Working in the U.S.?

Renowned U.S. medical analyst and veteran Dr. Lawrence Sellin revealed that the Chinese Communist regime has reportedly infiltrated U.S. research programs with the help of Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama.

“It is a consequence of “scientific chain migration,” a pattern of research program infiltration by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) that has been replicated across the United States for forty years,” wrote Dr. Sellin and independent researcher, Anna Chen, on Nov. 21.

The procedure followed by CCP members is basic: large groups enter laboratories and related centers in the United States and invite other comrades to take the most advanced knowledge and technologies from the country.

In this way, they also take advantage of the funding provided by the U.S. government. They then return to China to adapt that knowledge to developing programs, including the CCP military.

In 1979, a wave of thousands of Chinese researchers flooded 60 U.S. universities, based on an agreement signed between President Jimmy Carter and CCP leader Deng Xiaoping.

President Barack Obama, for his part, extended that agreement indefinitely. Many Chinese students and intellectuals obtained citizenship and permanent positions in these institutions while remaining loyal to the CCP.

Among the most outstanding are those who attain memberships in the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, millions of dollars in grants, including those from Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and attachments as university professors.

Meanwhile, they maintain active and ongoing exchanges with the CCP military and top Chinese universities and research centers.

Moreover, they have promoted the development of China’s controversial Talent programs, such as the “Thousand Talents Plan.” So did Xiao-fan Wang, a “foreign” member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and his wife, Xin-Nian Dong, a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences.

“U.S. research centers are de facto extensions of the Chinese Communist Party’s fused military-civilian research program,” Dr. Sellin reiterates.

In this context, renowned American journalist Tucker Carlson denounced that the country’s leaders have been selling “out America to China” for years to enrich themselves, and in doing so, “They betrayed us,” he concluded:

Carlson pointed to Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg as a clear example of one of the aristocrats in the service of the Chinese, who applies all the censorship imposed on him in the media, thereby enriching himself. This makes him doubt the way in which Bloomberg would defend the country’s sovereignty if he were to become president.

He recalled the case of former Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk, who became a foreign agent with ties to the Communist Party, and former Sen. Joe Lieberman who works for the Chinese company ZTE banned in the country because of the threat it represents.

He also mentioned former U.S. Virginia Rep. Rick Boucher, who works for companies considered dangerous, linked to the Chinese regime.

Carlson also points to other strategies through which the Chinese regime deeply hurts the United States in its struggle to dominate it, and he said it invests large amounts of money to do so. One such strategy is evident in the purchase and domination of the most American sport: basketball. He mentioned the leaders of the NBA, the coach of the Golden State Warriors and athletes like LeBron James, who defend the censorship imposed by the Chinese and against the cherished freedom of expression that is being preserved in the United States.

Also, through the Thousand Talents Initiative — a Chinese program that buys the services of entrepreneurs, scientists, and experts often in secret, they get the best of the technology and research developed in the country, for their benefit.

The academic world is the beneficiary of large amounts of money distributed by the Chinese system in universities, behind the backs of the authorities. Thus, Harvard and Yale universities were accused of hiding hundreds of millions of dollars received from foreign countries such as China and Saudi Arabia, among others.

The FBI is currently investigating more than 1,000 cases in which it believes China stole research from U.S. companies through espionage. As if that were not enough, the pervasive influence of the Chinese regime was present in Disney, which changed the ethnicity of a movie character to avoid the anger of its “masters in China.”

No less disturbing is the growing dependence on products made in China. Eighty percent of the antibiotics used in the United States at this time come from China, to cite just one fact.

Carlson is emphatic in pointing out that this whole situation was generated over many years, during which time American leaders of the time became rich by selling their own country. The Chinese regime has generated a long list of protests and grievances in many countries, and the human rights atrocities committed are among the most serious.

Practitioners of the Falun Dafa spiritual tradition and Uighur Muslims are ruthlessly persecuted.

The Trump administration stands out in its defense of human rights and religious freedom.

“Over the past 20 years, Falun Gong practitioners have experienced terrible and unacceptable human rights abuses in China,” says a statement issued by Rep. James McGovern (D-Mass.), chairman of the Congressional Executive Committee on China (CECC), and its co-chairman, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).

Also, Assistant Secretary of State John J. Sullivan denounced “the horrors of state repression” of human rights by the Chinese regime on Sept. 24 to more than 30 countries in New York.

Talk about clouding the task to find the source of COVID-19 and its purported ties to China! They’re involved in pretty much EVERY industry in the United States. Therefore, their reach into our society has been virtually effortless, precisely because of the massive amount of money the CCP pours into our country.

Summary

Is it critical for us to know the source of the virus? If so, for what reason or reasons?

Yes, it is. Why? Finding an actual treatment without the knowledge of its source IS possible. But it would happen only in a hit-or-miss scenario. And even then, without the source, it would be challenging to produce an ironclad antidote. Look at the effectiveness of these mRNA vaccines and the Johnson and Johnson. All three have proven reliable as only a “temporary answer.” We have no real cure.

It’s time to demand answers to the questions we have: Why has there been no unified international investigation to find COVID’s source? After all, hundreds of thousands are dead, and millions more are severely ill from the virus, with many sustaining life-altering reactions to even COVID’s treatments.

I cannot believe if World leaders joined together with a single purpose to find the origin, it could happen quickly. Once known, the REAL scientists could then quickly craft medical countermeasures that work instead of forcing citizens of every country to accept these mechanically created medicines that may be helping some but are certainly killing far more than have all other vaccines combined in our history.

That’s NOT what U.S. Healthcare is supposed to be about. We have for generations touted our healthcare system as the greatest and most progressive on the Planet. We’ve never seen in this country the mass chaos we watch daily in which millions scramble for answers to a plausible question while fascist so-called experts are using the fear of COVID-unknown coupled to fear of death as tools to force all to accept these top-down “solutions” that are helping almost no one.

Americans are close to the line of telling our government, “No more! We demand answers, and we demand them now!”

I hope these Americans will stop there. But I expect that will not be all that happens. Frustrations coupled with fear and egregious totalitarian actions initiated by our federal and state governments have created an environment that almost always initiates violence among nations’ people in World history.

We do not need that in the U.S. We need honest and straightforward leadership on this and every other front. We need answers and not platitudes. We don’t need our president to try and make us feel warm and fuzzy. We need facts: the good AND the bad. And we need them NOW.

Our lives and our futures are at stake for all of us!

The Gifts Of The Maji: Gold, Frankincense, And Myrrh

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.  Matthew 2:10 KJV

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.  Matthew 2:11 KJV

Jesus Christ’s birth in Bethlehem so many centuries ago is told in Matthew 1:18-25.  We celebrate his birth every December 25th and we rejoice that He came as the pure sinless lamb of God to shed His blood and bear our sins on Himself.  To those who understand the love of our One True God, Jesus was the greatest gift to all mankind.

The Three Wise Men

In Matthew 2:11, it states, “Into the house…the young child.” These words need not indicate that the wise men came sometime after the birth of Christ.  The family would naturally have moved into a home as quickly as possible after Jesus was born, and “young child” can mean a newborn (John 16:21).  We also do not know how many wise men there were, but they came bearing gifts to the child, guided by the star in the East. When they reached the place of Christ’s birth, the star lingered above the newborn King.

Gold, frankincense and myrrh were gifts worthy of a king, and they were given as an act of worship.  These valuable gifts were clearly intended to honor Jesus, but they carried deeper theological significance as well.

The early church Fathers understood the gold to be symbolic of Christ’s deity as King, the frankincense of His purity and priestly role, and the myrrh a prefiguring of His death (since it was used for embalming).

The Book of Isaiah, when describing Jerusalem’s glorious restoration, tells of nations and kings who will come and “bring gold and frankincense and shall proclaim the praise of the Lord.” (Isaiah 60:6).

Gold

Gold is a precious metal, always has been.  It is mentioned 417 times in the Bible and belonged to both religious and secular men as wealth and a currency.  Today’s equivalent to King Solomon’s gold is likely more than $60 trillion.  Gold represented kingdoms in both Daniel 2 and Zechariah 6.

Giving the gift of gold to the baby Jesus was symbolic of His kingship and blatantly stated by the Magi.  The gift of gold means Messiah Jesus was the King of Kings.  In Matthew 2:1-2 the Bible states, “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east and are come to worship him.”

(Herod told them to find Him because he too wanted to worship Him, but that was a lie.  Herod was an evil man and had even had members of his own family murdered.)

Because of its scarcity and immense value, gold was particularly associated with royalty and nobility, as is seen in 1 Kings 10 when the Queen of Sheba visits King Solomon bearing great quantities of gold as a gift. By bringing a gift of gold, the wise men showed that they did indeed consider Jesus a king.

Their gift of gold may have foreshadowed another aspect of Jesus’ ministry. Under the Old Covenant, the Most Holy Place (the Holy of Holies) was an inner sanctuary within the Temple where the priest would encounter the presence of God and offer a sacrifice of atonement for the sins of the people. Likewise, the incarnation of Jesus heralded the presence of God, Immanuel, and the sacrifice of atonement he would make on behalf of his people when he went to the cross. (Immanuel not only means “God with us,” but it is a Hebrew name that appears in the Book of Isaiah as a sign that God will protect the House of David.) The wise men may have had this connection in mind because, as described in 1 Kings 6:20-22, the walls of the Most Holy Place and the altar within it were completely overlaid with gold.

Frankincense

Frankincense has a distinct and lovely aroma.  It comes from a tree, grown in desert climates and those trees will actually grow out of cracks in rocks.  Frankincense grows naturally at the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula, and almost nowhere else.

Known as Boswellia in scientific literature, frankincense boasts a unique, rich history throughout the Middle East. Its legacy even spans into modern times, and into every corner of the globe. Beyond its elegant, low-flowing branches and bright, perky flowers, the frankincense tree produces a powerful resinous sap.  Frankincense resin is valued for its uses in everything from religious incense and perfume, to decorative jewelry, toothpaste, deodorant, and even folk medicine.  We keep frankincense and myrrh as anointing oils.

The sap of frankincense has been a prized treasure throughout much of the world for thousands of years. At one time it was valued more highly than gold; frankincense is viewed by many as one of nature’s special blessings.

Incisions (“wounds”) are cut into the Boswellia tree, it is actually “pierced.” The tear-shaped droplets of sap that escape is carefully scraped off and dried. These “tears” solidify into an alluring mass of silver, golden, and amber colors that, in and of itself, are a sight to behold. They are beautiful. There are a multitude of uses, not just for scent, but for health purposes as well.  Studies show it even helps deter viruses.

The frankincense tree and its fragrant resin really is one of nature’s treasure with sacred significance, and shouldn’t be ignored, but it must be left to heal after it is pierced for sap or the tree will not recover.

As with gold, frankincense may also have an implied connection with the Temple worship of the Old Covenant. Burning incense at the altar was a key part of the sacrificial system prescribed by God for use in the Tabernacle and, later, in the Temple itself. According to Exodus 30, however, not just any incense would do. A specific recipe of spices mixed with “pure frankincense” (v. 34) was to be consecrated as “pure and holy” (v.35) and was the only incense permitted at the altar. A speculative parallel can be drawn between this and Jesus’ life as a pure and holy offering to the Lord.

Myrrh

Myrrh is extruded from the gum of the Commiphora myrrh plant and was less expensive than frankincense, but was still highly valued and is referred to seventeen times in the Bible. It is first mentioned in Genesis 37:25, where it was being carried by camels in a caravan. Myrrh was used for a variety of purposes in biblical times as a perfume (Song of Solomon 1:13; 3:6; 4:6, 14; 5:1, 5, 13), an anesthetic, for burial embalming (John 19:39), as an ingredient in anointing oil (Exodus 30:23-25), and to deodorize clothes. According to Esther 2:12, it was also used for purification and in a cosmetic for women.

Perhaps the wise men intended this gift as an indication of Jesus’ humanity and the manner in which he would save his people—namely, that he would die for them (Isaiah 53:5).

We don’t know what Mary and Joseph did with the gifts brought to the newborn King, but we do know that an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream and told him to take Mary and Jesus and flee to Egypt. (Matthew 2:13) Herod’s rage overwhelmed him with an unfounded fear that Jesus would take over his throne.  He wanted to seek the young child and destroy him.

The journey to Egypt was long and it would take funds to escape, so the gifts to the child may well have served to travel to Egypt and save his early life .

Conclusion

It’s Christmas!  It’s a holy time, a time of celebration for the birth of our Messiah.  It’s a time with family and friends, a time for joy, peace, love, sharing and giving.  We offer up gifts to those we love and care about and to those less fortunate; giving gifts freely because of the gift given to us by the Holy One of Israel.

May your Christmas celebration be filled with love, peace and thanksgiving.

Merry Christmas! And may the joy of His birth be with you throughout the new year.
