Time For COVID-19 Manipulators To Pay

There is something ominous in the wind. And it’s so obvious, you can smell it and almost see it. It’s been building for two years plus now. And every day it gets louder, stronger, and much bigger. It even smells!

It’s been disguised and sold to the American people, and to the people of every other country, as a disease and a pandemic: COVID-19. But, now, daily we learn something new that chips away at that “theory” of a pandemic and that “theory” of COVID-19 that “will destroy us all unless we COMPLY!”

A groundswell of pushback as blanketed the Earth. People are revolting in the millions. What against? The weaponization of a real virus for the sole purpose of seizing control of the populace.

Don’t get me wrong: COVID-19 is real, and it really kills. Forget about the conspiracy (that may or may not be true) that it originated in an Asian laboratory. Whether or not that happened, we have a SARS virus that can kill. But what we now know is that it’s been used against people to scare us into submission.

But its reign of terror is about over. There’s “formal” pushback afoot that may kill the COVID-19 giant in its tracks. It’s called, “Truth.”

It’s payback time.

Death To The COVID Monster!

According to The Desert Review, a slew of high-power figures in the COVID-19 pandemic and the push to mandate experimental COVID jabs have been accused of several crimes, including crimes against humanity, war crimes, and crimes of aggression in the U.K.:1

“In a stunning 46-page legal filing2 to the International Criminal Court on December 6 [2021], an intrepid attorney and seven applicants accused Anthony Fauci, Peter Daszak, Melinda Gates, William Gates III, and twelve others of numerous violations of the Nuremberg Code. These included various crimes against humanity and war crimes as defined by the Rome Statutes, Articles 6, 7, 8, 15, 21, and 53.”

The Dirty Sixteen

In all, the 16 defendants named in the legal filing are:

  1.  Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the NIAID
  2.  Dr. Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance
  3.  Bill Gates
  4.  Melinda Gates
  5.  Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer
  6. Stephane Bancel, CEO of Moderna
  7.  Pascal Soriot, CEO of AstraZeneca
  8.  Alex Gorsky, CEO of Johnson & Johnson
  9.  Tedros Adhanhom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the WHO
  10.   Boris Johnson, U.K. prime minister
  11.  Christopher Whitty, U.K. chief medical adviser
  12.  Matthew Hancock, former U.K. secretary of state for Health and Social Care
  13.  Medicines and Healthcare, current U.K. secretary of state for Health and Social Care
  14. June Raine, U.K. chief executive of Medicines and Healthcare products
  15. Dr. Rajiv Shah, president of the Rockefeller Foundation
  16. Klaus Schwab, president of the World Economic Forum

The victims, on behalf of whom the complaint was filed, are “the peoples of the United Kingdom.” One of the seven applicants is Dr. Michael Yeadon, a former vice president and chief scientist of allergy and respiratory research at Pfizer.

At the end of 2020, he expressed deep concerns about the COVID jabs becoming mandatory, as he could find no medical rationale for their use. In 2021, as we all know, mandates were rolled out around the world. In April 2021, Yeadon went public with concerns that the shots were part of a depopulation agenda.

“I believe [COVID-19 booster shots] are going to be used to damage your health and possibly kill you. I can see no sensible interpretation other than a serious attempt at mass depopulation,” he said in a “Planet Lockdown” interview published in late April 2021.3

What Is the International Criminal Court?

The International Criminal Court4,5 (ICC) is an intergovernmental organization and international tribunal located in The Hague, Netherlands. Its activities are governed by an international treaty called the Rome Statute, which has been ratified by more than 120 countries, including the U.S.

The ICC is a permanent, independent court that investigates crimes that concern the international community, such as claims of genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes of aggression. In theory, member states are supposed to cooperate with the court, but that doesn’t always happen.

If warranted, the court can prosecute and try individuals charged with these types of crimes, but it will typically only do so if the member state fails to take the appropriate legal actions against the perpetrator, which can happen if a government tries to shield the individual in question from criminal responsibility. As noted in the complaint:6

“We have tried to raise this case through the local English police and the English Court system without success, we have been unable to even get the case registered either with the police or with the court after several attempts.

The statute for the ICC declares that ‘The ICC is intended to complement, not to replace, national criminal systems; it prosecutes cases only when a State is unwilling or unable genuinely to carry out the investigation or prosecution (Article 17(1)(a)). This is such a case which is why we are addressing the ICC directly.”

Still, the ICC relies on the states’ national law enforcement to arrest individuals, so a member state can still restrict the court’s ability to bring a criminal to justice. The ICC does not have its own police force to carry out warrants or arrests. In this case, defendants are scattered across several countries. According to the ICC complaint, the 16 defendants have violated the Nuremberg Code and four articles of the Rome Statute.

Violation 1 — The Nuremberg Code

The Nuremberg Code is a set of medical research ethics principles that grew out of the “Doctors Trial” in Nuremberg following World War II. The war crimes tribunal at Nuremberg established 10 standards to which doctors must conform when performing experiments on human subjects.7

Foremost among these codes of ethics is the necessity of informed consent to participate in medical experimentation. The Nuremberg Code has also been the basis for other medical ethics guidance and laws, including the Helsinki Declaration of 1965, which binds practicing physicians to “act in the patient’s best interest when providing medical care.”

While not binding law, the complaint argues that the Nuremberg Code qualifies as a source of international law by way of Article 21(1)(b) of the Rome Statute, which recognizes international law, international treaties, international custom, and principles of law recognized by civilized nations as being of equal value.

Violation 2 — Genocide

Article 6 of the Rome Statute refers to acts of genocide, i.e., acts intended to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial, or religious group. Here, the group in question is the British population in its entirety, and by extension the world, starting with the elderly, chronically ill, and disabled. Genocide can include the acts of:

  • Killing
  • Causing serious bodily or mental harm
  • Imposing measures intended to reduce fertility
  • Deliberately inflicting conditions of life, calculated to bring about whole or partial destruction

All of these definitions apply in this case, and details are provided to support each charge. For example, with regard to “conditions of life calculated to bring about destruction,” this includes both the destruction of businesses and transfer of wealth through imposed lockdowns and damaging people’s immune systems through the refusal to offer early treatment, mask mandates, and coercing people to take the COVID jab.

Violation 3 — Crimes Against Humanity

Article 7 of the Rome Statute covers crimes against humanity, which includes: Murder, Extermination, Imprisonment or severe deprivation of physical liberty in violation of fundamental law, Torture, Enforced sterilizations, Persecution of any identifiable group, Apartheid, and other inhumane acts.

The specific charges under each are detailed in the complaint, with data to support them.

Violation 4 — War Crimes

War crimes are covered in Article 8 of the Rome Statute. The complaint argues that “a covert war has been waged against the people of the United Kingdom (and the world) through the release of the biological weapon SARS-Cov-2 and the additional bioweapon, m-RNA gene therapy ‘vaccines.” They also include a charge of Mens Rea, meaning the intent to commit a crime, stating that:

“… the members of the UK government and world international leaders against which we have brought this complaint, are knowingly working on behalf of this global agenda for depopulation through the biological weapons known as SARS-Cov-2 and the m-RNA ‘vaccines.’

We submit therefore that the members of the UK government and world leaders against which we have brought this complaint have both knowledge and intent with respect to these alleged crimes.”

War crimes listed in the complaint include:

Willful killing by way of the experimental COVID jabs, the use of lethal doses of midazolam in nursing home patients diagnosed with COVID, and the inclusion of graphene hydroxide in the shots.

Not only are they asking for a full investigation into the inclusion of graphene hydroxide in some of the COVID shots, they also want a full investigation into the suspected assassination of Dr. Andreas Noack, a German chemist and a top graphene expert. Noack’s doctoral thesis described the conversion of graphene oxide into graphene hydroxide. According to the complaint:

“Professor Dr. Pablo Campra comes from the university of Almeria, and alongside Dr. Andreas Noack he examined the covid ‘vaccines’ for the presence of graphene oxide with the Micro-Raman Spectroscopy, the study of frequencies. According to both doctors, the vaccines don’t contain graphene oxide but do contain graphene hydroxide.

On November 23, 2021, Dr. Andreas Noack released a video explaining what graphene hydroxide is and how the nano structures injected into the human body act as ‘razor blades’ inside the veins of ‘vaccine’ recipients …

On 18th November 2020 Dr. Andreas Noack was on a ‘livestream’ on YouTube discussing the dangers of the Covid-19 ‘vaccines’ when he was arrested on camera by armed German police (Appendix 41). On 26th November 2021, just hours after publishing his latest video about graphene oxide and graphene hydroxide (Appendix 42) he was attacked and murdered.

We request a full investigation be done into the inclusion of Graphene hydroxide in theCovid-19 ‘vaccines’ and into the assassination of Dr. Andreas Noack.”

Torture by way of forced mask-wearing, the use of test swabs containing carcinogenic chemicals, and the release of a manmade bioweapon.
Willfully causing great suffering or serious injury to body or health — Examples include the forced use of masks, the closing of doctors’ offices, the COVID jab mandates, the use of psychological warfare, the use of economic warfare, the use of biological warfare, denial of effective medicines, suppression of alternative treatments, use of ventilators despite evidence of harm, and euthanizing elderly COVID patients with midazolam.
Extensive destruction and appropriation of property, not justified by military necessity and carried out unlawfully and wantonly.
Intentionally directing attacks against civilians, including those not taking direct part in any hostilities.
Intentionally launching an attack, knowing it will cause loss of life, injury to civilians, damage to civilian objects, and/or widespread, long-term and severe damage to the natural environment.
Violation 5 — Crimes of Aggression

The last violation is crimes of aggression against the British population, covered under Article 8 bis3 of the Rome Statute. According to the complaint:

“This is a global criminal conspiracy, which has been planned for several decades. It is now obvious that ‘the plan’ involves the ultrarich and leaders of most nation states, with a few exceptions.

It is also clear that powerful think-tanks including WEF [World Economic Forum] in Davos as well as the Club of Rome, and other NGOs like WHO and GAVI among others, are at the centre of this draconian criminal conspiracy. Under the official slogan; ‘BUILD BACK BETTER,’ used by the President of WHO, the President of USA, as well as the President of WEF, the Prime Minister of the UK as well as countless other world leaders.

The goal of this activity is to create a new world order, through the UN ‘s Agenda 2030, by dismantling all the Democratic Nation States, step by step, controlled by an un-elected elite and to destroy the freedoms and basic human rights of the peoples of the Earth.

In addition to this, the aim is to destroy small and medium sized businesses, moving the market shares to the largest corporations, owned by the Global Elite. The fulfilment of this goal will most likely lead to full enslavement of mankind.

This is being done by means of the threat from both a dangerous biological weapon, the virus, the vaccines, the testing test pins, the mask mandates and all other measures. All of which constitute not only a breach of National laws, but also a fundamental breach of the Charter of the United Nations and the Treaty of Rome and our Fundamental Human rights.

It is of the utmost urgency that ICC take immediate action, taking all of this into account, to stop the rollout of COVID vaccinations, introduction of unlawful vaccination passports and all other types of illegal warfare mentioned herein currently being waged against the people of the United Kingdom by way of a court injunction.”

New Findings Will “Dismantle the Entire Vaccine Industry”

In a January 1, 2022, video announcement (featured at the top of this article), Dr. Reiner Fuellmich8 — a U.S.-German consumer protection trial lawyer and co-founder of the German Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee (Außerparlamentarischer Corona Untersuchungsausschuss)9,10,11 launched July 10, 2020 — announced the data they now have in their possession is “enough to dismantle the entire vaccine industry.”

Fuellmich is heading up the committee’s corona crisis tort case. Initially, the committee focused on exposing the PCR test fraud, but now they also have evidence that the vaccine makers were using different lot numbers to carry out an experiment within an experiment, unbeknownst to the public.

According to Fuellmich, it looks like an experiment to determine the dosage needed to kill and/or maim people. In other words, people have not been getting identical products. Different lots or batches contain different dosages and even different ingredients.

According to Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, former chair of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe Health Committee, they have “hard evidence” of this. He points to an investigation published in late 2021 showing only 5% of the lots were responsible for 100% of the rapid deaths.12

In the video, Wodarg also shows a graph of 9,500 different Pfizer jab batches, with some having toxicity, as evidenced by deaths, that is 3,000 times above the baseline. Others have toxicity that is 2,500 times higher than baseline. Between them are batches with no deaths attributed to them.

Wodarg also claims to have data showing that the vaccine makers appear to have coordinated and synchronized their experimentation so that only one of them is releasing a potentially deadly batch at a time. But they’re all doing this. They’re all experimenting with dosages and ingredients, Wodarg insists, and the reason they’re able to do this is that there are no review boards overseeing any of them.

There’s now an interesting site where you can search the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) data based on your lot number, to see if you got one of the more dangerous batches. You can find that dashboard here.13 The video below explains how to use the dashboard.

“There is inescapable evidence, in my view as a lawyer, of there being premeditation,” Fuellmich says. And if premeditation can be proven, then there is no legal immunity for anyone anymore. They can all be held liable for injuries and deaths.

Without a doubt, the legal battles will be incredibly difficult to pursue, as there are so many powerful people working together on this, protecting each other. But that doesn’t mean we don’t try. On the contrary, we must do everything in our power to bring the criminals behind this global takeover to justice, and hold them accountable for everything that has been done to our economies, our livelihoods, our families, our health, and our children’s futures.

Can The CDC Get Anything Else Dead-Wrong?

From the earliest days of the COVID pandemic, the PCR test has been a source of unrelenting controversy, with experts repeatedly pointing out that it’s not a valid diagnostic and produces inordinate amounts of false positives.

Importantly, a PCR test cannot distinguish between “live” viruses and inactive (noninfectious) viral particles. This is why it cannot be used as a diagnostic tool. As explained by Dr. Lee Merritt in her August 2020 “Doctors for Disaster Preparedness” lecture, media and public health officials appear to have purposefully conflated “cases” or positive tests with the actual illness in order to create the appearance of a pandemic.

Furthermore, a PCR test cannot confirm that SARS-CoV-2 is the causative agent for clinical symptoms as the test cannot rule out diseases caused by other bacterial or viral pathogens. The inventor of the PCR test, Kary Mullis, who won a Nobel Prize for his work, stated this in those exact words.

Almost universally, health authorities have also instructed labs to use excessively high cycle thresholds (CTs) — i.e., the number of amplification cycles used to detect RNA particles — thereby ensuring a maximum of false positives.

From the start, experts noted that a CT over 35 is scientifically unjustifiable, yet the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended running PCR tests at a CT of 40, and the World Health Organization recommended a CT of 45.

The pandemic of false positives was then used by world governments to implement pandemic countermeasures that have destroyed the global economy, ruined countless lives, decimated the education of an entire generation and stripped us of basic human rights and freedoms.

Time and again, the goal post for ending the pandemic theater has been moved, and the justifications for continuing the life-destroying countermeasures have become increasingly laughable. The fearmongering over Omicron, for example, makes no rational sense based on the data available, which shows the variant is among the mildest so far, and far less likely to infect and damage the lungs.

CDC Cuts Isolation Recommendation in Half

In the last days of December 2021, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued yet another illogical protocol change. People who test positive for SARS-CoV-2, or have known exposure, but remain asymptomatic, now only need to isolate for five days rather than the previous 10, but should wear a mask for another five days when at work or in public. Also, they don’t need to get retested at the end of their quarantine. The stated reason? Because:

  1. The majority of viral transmission (85% to 90%) occurs in the first day or two before symptom onset, and two to three days after symptom onset
  2. The PCR test can remain positive for up to 12 weeks after you’ve recovered from the infection

How is it that the CDC didn’t realize until now that the PCR test was picking up dead viral debris for three months after infection? The facts that the test, a) was far too sensitive, and b) couldn’t identify active infection, were criticisms from the start. What the CDC’s belated admission means is that, for the past two years, Americans have unnecessarily wasted time in self-isolation — perhaps weeks — waiting for a negative test.

In a December 30, 2021, appearance on MSNBC, Dr. Anthony Fauci responded to questions about the updated CDC guidance. CDC director Rochelle Walensky also tried to make sense of the new guidance in a December 29, 2021, ABC News interview.

Neither of them offered any explanation as for why the CDC didn’t change the rules sooner, and only now decided that keeping noninfectious people in isolation for days and weeks on end might not be so good after all.

Walensky did make a rather telling comment on CNN, though, when asked about the reasoning behind the shortened isolation guidance. “It really had a lot to do with what we thought people would be able to tolerate,” she said. Some have understandably translated that as “how much tyranny we thought people would be able to tolerate.”

Differing Rules for Health Care Workers

The CDC has not given up on making the guidance as confusing as possible though. December 23, 2021, they also updated guidance for health care workers, stating that “Health care workers with COVID-19 who are asymptomatic can return to work after seven days with a negative test, and that isolation time can be cut further if there are staffing shortages.”

In his MSNBC interview, Fauci was asked why health care workers are being treated differently, having to isolate for seven days rather than five, and still have to get a negative test, when the test can falsely remain positive for up to 12 weeks? What data supports this, and is it publicly available?

According to Fauci, the data to support this difference “is internal to the CDC,” but really, there’s “no specific data” to back it up, he adds. The CDC merely made “a judgment call.”

Double-Jabbed Treated the Same as Unvaccinated

The CDC’s updated guidance also puts those who have received two doses of the COVID shot in the same category as the unvaccinated, so when it comes to isolating after exposure, they have to follow the same rules, whereas those who have received a booster shot follow a different set of guidelines. As explained by the CDC:

“For people who are unvaccinated or are more than six months out from their second mRNA dose (or more than 2 months after the J&J vaccine) and not yet boosted, CDC now recommends quarantine for 5 days followed by strict mask use for an additional 5 days.

Alternatively, if a 5-day quarantine is not feasible, it is imperative that an exposed person wear a well-fitting mask at all times when around others for 10 days after exposure. Individuals who have received their booster shot do not need to quarantine following an exposure, but should wear a mask for 10 days after the exposure.

For all those exposed, best practice would also include a test for SARS-CoV-2 at day 5 after exposure. If symptoms occur, individuals should immediately quarantine until a negative test confirms symptoms are not attributable to COVID-19.”

Fauci defended the decision to treat the double-jabbed as if they’re unvaccinated saying that those who have received a booster shot have far greater protection against the Omicron variant, compared to those who have only received one or two doses.

“When you’re infected, you’re infected,” Fauci said, and it doesn’t matter whether you’re vaccinated or not. The viral load is the same, so the risk of spreading the infection is the same. Those who have been boosted are less likely to be infected or carry a large viral load, hence they don’t need to isolate.

PCR Cannot Tell You Anything About Contagiousness

Fauci was also asked about how one can measure contagiousness. If the PCR can register positive for 12 weeks after an infection, it can’t be a reliable indicator of infectiousness. This was precisely the point that Mullis, inventor of the PCR test, attempted to make in the video at the top with respect to PCR and HIV.

So, how can we tell if we’re infectious or not? Fauci confirmed that the PCR can only tell you there’s a presence or absence of viral fragments, not whether it’s an active infection, or whether you’re actually infectious. He did not, however, provide an answer to the question as to how one can measure contagiousness.

Rapid Test Doesn’t Pick Up Omicron

Yet another confounding factor in this mess is that the rapid test apparently doesn’t pick up Omicron very well. Your viral load needs to be very high at the time of testing in order for the rapid test to recognize it.

This admission came within days of president Biden’s announcement that the federal government will distribute half a billion free rapid tests to homes around the country in 2022.

It seems like a waste of resources, seeing how Omicron is starting to take over, but who knows, maybe it will pick up the common cold instead, allowing the “case” count to remain high enough to keep the charade going.

What’s the Real Death Count?

The CDC’s belated admission that the PCR test can’t identify active infection raises another question: What does this mean for those who died with a positive test? Did they actually have an active infection? If not, should they have been designated as COVID deaths?

The obvious answer to the last two questions is, of course, no. The vast majority were likely false positives, and the real death toll from COVID-19 considerably lower than we’re led to believe. The CDC undoubtedly knew this all along, seeing how they’ve been relentlessly criticized for their recommendation to run the PCR at a CT of 40. They’re trying to pretend that they just realized this, but that’s simply not believable.

Summary

Beginning in March of 2020, we at TruthNewsNetwork shared our daily-intensifying suspicions that all things with the CDC and Dr. Anthony Fauci were not “totally” accurate. We didn’t know then (and still do not for certain today) that there was corruption afoot in the mixed messaging we heard daily. But what other explanation is there that makes sense?

Let’s be honest: throughout Fauci’s tenure as our “COVID-19 God” he has filled our eyes and ears with incorrect “facts.” (There are no such things) And when confronted for his misinformation, his sole response is to denigrate the person(s) who are asking about his unfactual facts.

There are some things that we really need to get our arms around to save people serious illness and death from coronavirus. And getting these facts supersedes ANYTHING that concerns Dr. Fauci. He’s at best a figurehead representing the U.S. healthcare system but has failed miserably in that task.

The questions to ask which demand answers are simple:

  1. What and where is the source of coronavirus?
  2. Are the hospital protocols that are ironclad across the nation accurate and proven medically successful? If not, why are they being used?
  3. What did the CDC so adamantly demand not using therapeutics like hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin for two years when they knew that were proving to be effective against COVID?
  4. Why did the CDC introduce the vaccines as the singular effective treatment for COVID when they knew that was false?
  5. What financial stake in the vaccine process does Dr. Fauci and any other individuals or groups hold?
  6. This is the big one: Why are healthcare institution managers putting their workers in the streets after these are the ones who sacrificed their lives daily when the pandemic first began? What do. These healthcare bureaucrats have in this egregious policy?

Sadly, even if we get good and honest answers to these questions, we’ll still have twice as many as these six that need answers. And, purposely, we may never get those answers.

Here’s another question, number 7: Why do we get even one false answer to any one of these questions?

Honestly, we may never get answers on which we can rely. It appears the U.S. healthcare system has been compromised for political purposes by this flock of bureaucrats portrayed to us as “the” sole arbiters of Truth in our pandemic. That should cause pause, if not anger, for every American.

We simply NEED the truth.

 

“Will It Go Round In Circles”

That’s the title of a song from the 70s by Billy Preston. As a DJ, I played it but really didn’t understand it.

I’m pretty sure I get it now.

Have you stopped to try to objectively analyze what our nation has been through since early 2020? No, we’ve had no wars, no armed international conflicts, no drought, no armed invasions: other than those which are manmade and thrust upon the nation for political purposes.

Sure, we’ve had some horrific storms: hurricanes, volcanoes, mudslides, and fires. Each was horrible and unthinkable. Those come from “Nature,” and were not man’s creations — despite what Al Gore says.

Before you question me about the obvious, COVID-19, consider this: COVID-19 was and is a disaster. But in large part, COVID-19’s pandemic was NOT natural: it was manipulated into existence and perpetrated by men — and primarily for political purposes.

No doubt, hundreds of thousands of Americans have died from infection by COVID-19. Now, in retrospect, we daily hear the questions rising in number and volume: “Have we acted in our response to COVID-19 with wisdom garnered from facts?”

Even finding an answer to that is more than speculation becomes more and more impossible every day. Facts that we witness firsthand do not seem to align with the narrative of the medical “experts” who pontificate about their knowledge and Godly intentions while ushering more and more of us into hospital intensive care units and funeral homes.

What’s REALLY going on?

To begin this week, let’s listen to one of, if not the first totally objective analyses, void of political narrative, of what has really happened during the “Era of COVID-19.” Victor Davis Hanson is my favorite — and most objective — go-to source for impartial, intellectual facts about many of the issues Americans are facing today:

 

“From the moment COVID-19 appeared, the pandemic became inseparable from political frenzy was inevitable since the SARS-CoV-2 virus may have escaped from a level-4 security virology lab in Wuhan, China.

The rapid-fire spread soon threatened to indict the Chinese communist government for nearly destroying the world economy and killing millions.

Western elites, in response, feared that their own lucrative investments in China would be jeopardized by such disclosures—and so acted accordingly in defending Beijing.

Nonetheless, one scenario that remains intriguing is that the escaped virus was birthed by gain-of-function research scientists, overseen by elements of the Chinese communist military. Worse, the lab was given subsidies by U.S. health authorities, routed through third parties. Hiding all of that damaging information warped government policy and media coverage.

Belatedly, a panicked China shut down all domestic travel in and out of Wuhan—but not flights abroad to Western Europe and the United States.

The rest is history.

From the outset, the World Health Organization simply spread false talking points about the outbreak from the Chinese government, delaying a robust global response.

Former President Donald Trump’s political opponents initially told Americans to shop and travel as usual—only to pivot as cases mounted and they blamed the president.

The U.S. 2020 ban on travel from China was met with charges of racism and xenophobia from presidential candidates. Ironically, many were simply channeling racist and xenophobic China’s propaganda.

Many doctors kept hammering the need for therapeutics, including taboo off-label use of cheap generic drugs. The use of hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin was widely ridiculed, despite continuing studies from abroad attesting to their usefulness.

Trump’s Operation Warp Speed project to develop vaccinations was also pilloried. Candidates Kamala Harris and Joe Biden did their best to talk down the safety of the impending inoculations. But once in power, they projected their own prior harmful rhetoric onto so-called “anti-vaxxers.”

Then they claimed credit for the initial success of the Trump vaccinations.

The Pfizer corporation had promised a major pre-election announcement about its likely rollout of a vaccine in October, just days before the 2020 election.

Then, mysteriously, Pfizer claimed the vaccine, in fact, would not be ready before November 3. A few days after the election of Joe Biden, the company reversed course and announced the vaccinations would soon be available.

Then-New York Governor Andrew Cuomo obstructed most all federal help with Trump’s fingerprints on it. That way Cuomo became a media, Emmy-winning darling—before resigning in disgrace.

Cuomo’s policies of steering infected patients into long-term-care facilities doomed over 10,000 of the elderly. New York is now illegally using race to grant preferences in the allotments of tests and new drugs.

The rhetoric of the media-progressive nexus that mandatory, massive lockdowns were necessary all but destroyed a booming Trump economy and denied critical medical care to millions. Emphasizing therapeutics, natural herd immunity, and the resilience of the youth to the disease were all pronounced “anti-science” by the demagogues on the Left.

Various celebrities and politicos—such as California Governor Gavin Newsom and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton—boasted the pandemic lockdown offered the perfect crisis that must not go to waste politically. Actress Jane Fonda even crowed that COVID-19 was a “gift from God to the Left” in helping to end Donald Trump.

In the waning days of the 2020 campaign, Biden went so far as to blame Trump personally for all the deaths from the virus.

Once the vaccinations had seemed to work in early 2021, an upbeat Joe Biden boasted that he would end the virus by summer 2021, by following “the science.” He went so far as to claim that no one had been vaccinated prior to his inauguration even though 17 million, including Biden himself, had been.

Then Nemesis answered such hubris.

The unforeseen delta and omicron variants hit. A new phrase, “breakthrough case,” revealed that the vaccinations often could only prevent serious illness, but not infection or infectiousness.

Suddenly the best and brightest people with three shots, who had blasted the red-state rubes as the ignorant un-vaxxed—got sick. More have now died from the virus on Biden’s than on Trump’s watch.

A warped economy amid renewed COVID-19 outbreaks helped to further destroy Biden’s waning popularity.

In reaction, the Left now calls for realism, emphasis on treatments, and acknowledgment of the value of natural immunities. It is even newly curious about the origins of the virus, and the need to ‘get back to normal.’

We are suddenly told that thousands had died “with” rather than “because” of COVID—the exact opposite of what we heard in the Trump era.

A skeptic might suggest terror over the impending midterms finally made the Left face reality.

Politicizing the pandemic is a euphemism. In truth, thousands of Americans have died needlessly because of weaponized disinformation about China’s culpability, vaccines, useful drugs, lockdowns, racial preferences, and long-care facilities.”

Summary

Victor hit the nail on the head!

I’m tired of second-guessing myself, let alone the “experts” who stand before us daily to remind us how stupid we are while “telling” — not “showing” — us how enlightened and educated on all things COVID they are. All this continues to happen while Americans are dying: from COVID-19 but also because of adverse reactions to these life-saving vaccines!

I’m looking for the answer. And the answer SHOULD come from the Oval Office.

No, it’s not realistic to expect this or any president to have all the answers. But the defining attribute of good leadership at any level is for the “expert” to recognize they do not have all the answers: the answers that are desperately needed for whatever dilemma is being faced. A good leader finds the REAL experts on each dilemma, brings them into the conversation, listens to their solutions, and then implements those solutions.

I haven’t seen that process play out in even one area of our lives in the last year.

But we did see that lived daily during the previous four years.

Say what you will, Donald Trump brought business ethics and operations to the Oval Office. He certainly wasn’t a “good” politician based on the age-old definition of that word. But he got things done.

That’s not happening under this president.

Vaccination Resistance In The United Kingdom: “A Stand In The Park”

“For freedom, Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” – Galatians 5:1

It was a typical icy cold and damp early January morning as I walked through the frozen mud to the bandstand at the center of my local park.

On this occasion, I was not going to listen to the usual brass band which would sometimes leisurely play there, but I was there to meet a group of complete strangers who have been meeting each Sunday morning in parks across the UK and around the world, to stand up peaceably for freedom, jobs, small businesses, against lockdowns, harmful laws and against people behind “The Great Reset.”

Home – A Stand in The Park

As I secretly prayed, I would not slip over as I observed them all watching me make my way over to them in extremely unsuitable footwear, my nerves slowly subsided as I walked up the steps and was met with a friendly and maskless welcome and even a hug from a group of men and women who were all extremely different in terms of their age and profession yet united in their concerns at the tyranny which is currently taking place in our world.

As we huddled under the canopy exchanging thoughts and ideas, I spoke to a beautiful young woman who was about to lose her job in the NHS (National Health Service) because she did not want to take a vaccination.

Like me, she did not work in a patient-facing environment, but her mere presence on the hospital grounds where she worked rendered her a danger to others. She had been notified that she had to have the first injection by the beginning of February and then the second injection by April if she wanted to keep her job.

At the hospital where I work, which is a mental health site, health care workers, have been notified of the same. However, they have been told other non-patient-facing roles would be sought for them, and if not suitable, dismissal is their option.   I cannot imagine how they must feel after having studied and committed themselves to a profession that is often a ‘calling’ for them to help and heal others.

Over the last two years, I have observed some of those staff leave their families and turn up each day to care for the sick. There is obviously good and bad staff, but it is certain, it is not an easy job.   Our government who originally promoted the celebration of their dedication and loyalty, by encouraging its citizens to stand on the streets and applaud them has now betrayed and rejected them.

Instead of “saving the NHS,” the organization as reported by the Department of Health and Social Care is set to lose around 126,000 medical staff in April this year. This, together with the absences which are recorded due to isolating as an outcome of a positive test or a family member having a positive result, means that the service is collapsing. This will affect all citizens who access the health service for other minor and very serious issues.  They will be at risk.

NHS100k is an initiative set up in November 2021 by a group of frontline ambulance staff who respect freedom of choice and wish to connect 100,000 health and social care staff who will lose their jobs by April 2022.

Reference from NHS100k is also made to Dr. Sam White who was a GP suspended by the NHS for speaking out about informed consent, the safety of the vaccine, and other safe and effective treatments. Dr. White has recently succeeded in winning a high court battle for freedom of speech after he was ordered not to make comments about anything to do with COVID!

It is reported:

Dr. White is finally free to share the peer reviewed literature he has been saving since his social media ban and his focus will be on protecting children from the experimental mRNA vaccines made by Pfizer and Moderna, as they can cause myocarditis.

As we made our way from the bandstand to a local coffee shop I listened to the many divisions and arguments which had been created and experienced within the workplace and the home. The group was extremely aware and well informed of the not-so-subtle brain-washing and relentless propaganda which had taken place in order to create such division. We spoke about The Nuremberg Code, and the cruelty towards patients who had died without their families last Christmas whilst politicians at No 10 Downing Street had reportedly held celebrations.

As we entered the lovely warm coffee shop away from the icy cold bandstand, I then found myself sitting with the young NHS worker who was about to lose her job.  We were joined by her husband and two young children. I asked them if they had a Plan B. Her husband said they would take one day at a time. He was re-assuring. Despite the dilemma, I did think how fortunate they were as a family to be on the same page in relation to their views on the situation.

Their little boy who was about five years old started studying my face and asking me questions and telling me all about himself. He compared our hair color, his being natural and mine not. He compared the color of our eyes, staring deeply into mine, informed me of the number of freckles he had, told me about a scar he possessed, and various other statements in a wonderfully free manner. Their family dog sat under the table looking from one to the other, possibly wondering when the food would be arriving.

Sitting within the warmth of that family I remembered how life should always be for us all. They made me welcome and it was wonderful to be with them. A mixture of generations with a deep desire and a love for freedom, free to speak, to look at each other, and make factual observations without any fear.

For the sake of the next generation, I believe that whatever our differences we must make a stand in our own way and draw a line in the sand against the impossible restrictions and the mandates which are being forced upon us.

A Stand in the Park which was founded in Sydney Australia by Brady Gunn, who invited people to stand for truth with him, stood alone at first but after three months people joined him.

A Stand in the Park now has 100,000 members who meet in over 1000 parks in 20 countries.

Dr. Fauci Busted For Handing Out Millions: To Chinese Scientists!

Saint Fauci has always seemed to be something more than what he presented in front of cameras for several years. In fact, it appears Fauci is much more sinister than we have thought. Yes, we know he has promoted and financed (through grants) horrific laboratory tests on animals that tormented innocent beagles and monkeys as part of unfathomable research that, of course, is always portrayed as “following the science to best serve people with the results.”

Call me stupid, but caging thousands of beagles in the desert with their scalps open to expose their brains  to sandflies and maggots without food or water is a bit beyond the pale of “Science.” It seems more like demented scientists we see in horror movies.

So what’s the latest “Fauci-ism?”

Two independent investigators published a report in Gateway Pundit right after Thanksgiving, in which they claim that both the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Dr. Fauci’s office, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), awarded tens of millions of dollars to Chinese scientists and institutions involved in the crime of forced organ harvesting from living people in mainland China.

The investigation was conducted by Dr. Lawrence Sellin, a retired U.S. Army Reserve colonel, Iraq and Afghanistan veteran, engaged in medical, pharmaceutical research, and Ms. Anna Chen, an independent researcher for the CCP People’s Liberation Army’s biological weapons program according to her Twitter bio.

In their report, the investigators claim that the NIH and Dr. Fauci’s NIAID funded research and the training of Chinese scientists in the United States. The latter work for hospitals in China that engage in forced organ harvesting and are affiliated with the CCP’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) that plays a central role in these crimes.

The crimes of forced organ harvesting were first exposed in 2006 by two Canadian lawyers, David Kilgour, Canada’s former Secretary of State for the Asia Pacific, and David Matas, a human rights lawyer, in an extensive report entitled ‘Bloody Harvest.’

Kilgour and Matas used the Chinese communist regime’s own transplant statistics, made calls to hospitals asking for “live” organs, took screenshots of hospital advertisements on their websites offering organs in “a matter of days,” and took testimonies from Chinese concentration camp survivors who witnessed prisons and detention centers taking blood and doing all sorts of medical checks on prisoners of conscience to obtain compatibility data for a transplant.

The Canadians concluded that in China, the CCP carries out forced organ harvesting from living people to sell for transplants on a large scale, using military logistics and facilities and with the authorization of a judge.

In March 2020, the China Tribunal, consisting of lawyers and doctors from different parts of the world, reached the same conclusions.

The victims are mainly practitioners of Falun Dafa, a discipline of the Buddha School persecuted in China since 1999. However, recent reports indicate that Uighurs in Xinjiang province have also become targets for organ harvesting by the CCP.

Evidence

A scientist from Columbia University, New York, Megan Sykes, published the results of scientific research in conjunction with Yong-Guang Yang, who, in addition to working for the same university, is also an employee of the Organ Regeneration and Transplantation laboratory of the First Hospital of Jilin University, an institute denounced for participating in the crime of organ theft in 2014.

That scientific study was funded by Anthony Fauci’s NIAID grant AI045897 and NIH grant 1S10RR027050 to the CCTI Flow Cytometry Core.

Yong-Guang Yang started working for Jilin University First Hospital in 2010 and through 2018 received $6.6 million from NIH.

In a 2011 study, also funded by NIAID, Yong-Guang Yang worked with Jilin University’s Chunfeng Wang, a collaborator with the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Institute of Military Veterinary Medicine, a center allegedly linked to China’s biological warfare program. In 2012, Yang began training surgeons from Jilin University First Hospital with American money at Columbia University, New York City, a major medical ethics concern.

In mid-October of 2021, Professor Russell Strong, an internationally renowned physician specializing in organ transplantation, warned Western medical institutions that they should ban the entry and training of Chinese surgeons who, once they have acquired the knowledge, return to China to participate in the forced removal of organs from living people that is carried out under the supervision and with the participation of the Chinese state apparatus.

Dr. Russell Strong was one of the pioneers in the field of transplantation and, as early as 1980, established an organ transplant program at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane. He performed the first successful liver transplant in 1985 and said he received hundreds of requests from Chinese doctors who wanted to train with him. “I refused to train them unless I had a signed document from their institution that they would not go back and use executed prisoners as organ donors,” Professor Strong said. “I never received one response, so I refused to take them on.”

Yong-Guang Yang also conducted a scientific study with the PLA in 2018, funded by NIH grants AI079087 and HL130724.

In 2019, Yong-Guang Yang became an official member of the Organ Regeneration and Transplantation Laboratory, First Hospital of Jilin University; the International Future Science Center; and the China National Laboratory of Joint Engineering of Animal Models for Human Diseases (which conduct animal and human cell experiments), all while still employed at Columbia University.

The researchers’ report mentions NIAID grant AI 064569 and NIH grant 1S10RR027050 from two investigations by Yang and colleagues at Jilin University First Hospital.

Zhongke Bio-Engineering Co., Ltd.

According to Gateway Pundit, Yong-Guang Yang became a scientific advisor to Zhongke Bio-Engineering Company in Changchun City, a biotechnology company focused on organ transplantation and regeneration.

The company at the time had two senior PLA officers working as advisors: Ningyi Jin PLA Major General and head of the PLA Institute of Military Veterinary Medicine, whose activities are related to China’s biological warfare program, and Wei-min Wang Major General, of the Standing Committee of the PLA Guangzhou Military Region Medical Science and Technology Committee of the PLA Guangzhou Military Region.

While Yong-Guang Yang received public funds from U.S. agencies, he held dozens of positions as a senior manager of various entities. He won multiple awards that in Chinese society only come with being connected to the top ranks of the CCP.

It is worth mentioning that, according to China expert Larry Ong, the PLA is loyal to the former leader of the CCP, Jiang Zemin, who opposes the current leader Xi Jinping.

In 1999, when Jiang Zemin was the Secretary of the Party, he launched the persecution of Falun Gong unilaterally. He gave the order to “defame their reputation, bankrupt them financially and destroy them physically,” which is why some analysts say that it was Jiang Zemin who gave the secret order to start harvesting the practitioners’ organs.

Summary

One can only imagine how much corruption there must be perpetrated by Fauci through the years that no one blows the whistle on. Reasoning why the people surrounding him are still working for him is bad enough. But what’s worse is to imagine what kind of power he holds over those people sufficient to keep him from his repeated the numerous travesties we already know of, let alone those in his past and present.

How does one amass such power? Who is in his pocket? What dirt must he have that keeps people silent regarding all of this?

We know that “The love of money is the root of all evil.” There’s no doubt Fauci has amassed a personal fortune that didn’t come from his $430,000 job in NIAID. And that makes him the highest-paid federal employee in the U.S. But with his long relationship and involvement in numerous Gates Foundation “human trials” involving foreign citizens in India, Africa, New Zealand, Australia in which Fauci “supervised” as well, there must be many dollars stashed away in foreign accounts.

Bill Gates is a eugenicist he learned from his father. Eugenics is a name for a broad practice of controlling populations in various ways. Fauci is a board member of the “Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.” Why would you think that would be the case? Many of the Gates Foundations hundreds of millions of “research dollars” are spent by Fauci in supervising all this. And the main target of it all is controlling the population through the use of vaccines.

I won’t tire you with the grim details of all this when you can do your own internet search and find mounds of documentation of not only these tests conducted around the world and their outcomes which in India killed children resulting in the Indian government kicking them out of the country. That’s just one of numerous such examples. There must be more at stake than this for Fauci.

Money by itself has only much “opportunity” to give one personal satisfaction. Of course, the hundreds of millions of Gates’ money certainly has made the Gates family’s lives pretty extraordinary, equaled by only a few. Therefore, Fauci must face the same human wants and desires as do those who chase the dollar. But it appears there’s more for that in this for Dr. Fauci.

In nations in which the top government is controlled totally by royalty, not chosen by a nation’s citizens but by birth, typically money and the opportunity to earn money is controlled totally by that tiny number of people. I think the love of money may have initiated Fauci’s quest. But, with money — ENOUGH money — one can much easier amass power. I think that’s Fauci’s objective. And he’s doing quite a job.

There’s even MORE evil that is surfacing in Dr. Fauci’s recent past that involves hopeless and helpless people. But we’ll leave that chapter of “Fauci World” for another story.

Please make no mistake about any of this factual information, more of which is revealed daily, with what we know, even without the dirt that remains covered in his life. It is unconscionable that Dr. Fauci is manipulating the lives of hundreds of millions of Americans in large part. And there’s NO other explanation than it coming from Fauci’s lust for power.

Stay tuned!

Will COVID-Insanity Ever End?

I’ll answer my question right now: “Unfortunately, only when the next Conservative moves into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”

Please don’t take that statement as if it comes from a hardcore Republican or right-winger. I’m not either. I am a conservative: not a conservative in-name-only. I’m an American who has spent the last 50 years of my life paying close attention to political matters in the nation. I quit simply reading or listening, or watching the news. I started way back then asking questions.

It’s funny that when you ask a lot of questions to a lot of people who supposedly know more than you, you always get a lot of answers — different answers. But that’s OK. If you ask a lot of questions, you’ll get at least a bunch of answers. Then it became MY job to investigate the evidence supporting or destroying the responses I received.

So here’s my latest question I’ve been asking a lot of people, many are the so-called medical “Experts” that control our lives entirely, at least regarding our healthcare: “What will it take to gain control of COVID-19 and all its various strains?”

Getting “real” answers to that is sometimes like pulling teeth. Still, the nation seems to be making fitful progress toward COVID sanity: notice I didn’t say “…but the nation seems to be making fitful progress toward taking control of COVID-19 and its various strains.”

To be honest, I doubt there is some knight on a stallion set to ride into Washington with a satchel containing COVID’s cure. I’m confident we’re far away from that. But, finally, many federal, state, and local leaders in politics and healthcare seem to finally be awakening to understand, “Something wrong’s going on.”

Who Might Those Leaders Be?

In New York, Gov. Hochul and (especially) Mayor Adams refuse to panic amid the Omicron wave, as their teams offer even more good sense and better information. Glimmers of sanity are even showing in President Biden’s orbit.

Plenty of idiocy remains, even on the Supreme Court, where Friday’s hearing on Biden’s vaccine mandate for most U.S. businesses brought some giant whoppers from the liberal wing.

  • For one, Justice Steven Breyer pointed to “750 million new COVID cases yesterday” — when the entire U.S. population is only half that figure. He also said, “Hospitals are full almost to the point of the maximum,” another wild error: The overall inpatient population isn’t growing.
  • Justice Sonia Sotomayor, meanwhile, claimed vaccination prevents transmission of the virus — contradicting no less than Biden CDC chief Rochelle Walensky, who noted this summer that Delta rendered that untrue.

And it’s even worse with Omicron, though that variant has proved far milder. Not that Sotomayor has noticed: She said Friday that it’s as deadly, another colossal error. That rivals her wild claim that “we have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in serious condition, and many on ventilators.” (The actual “official” number of children in hospitals for COVID-19 is 3500. And few are ventilated.)

Not that any of those “facts” have a thing to do with whether Biden’s mandate is constitutional: It’s not, and (thankfully) other justices showed far more sense.

Meanwhile, a pack of former Biden advisers on COVID are facing the fact that the coronavirus will be with us forever, albeit while posing a far less deadly threat, releasing a package of recommendations in the Journal of the American Medical Association under the headline, “A National Strategy for the ‘New Normal’ of Life With COVID.”

The specific ideas from Ezekial “Dr. Death” Emanuel and his colleagues range from the sound (allowing far more telemedicine and medical practice across state lines) to the absurd (permanent “vaccine passports” for all Americans). Still, at least they’re clear that “Zero COVID” is a foolish and unattainable goal.

The prez himself now admits, “Having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay,” which follows his belated recognition that “there is no federal solution” to the virus. (But leopards don’t change their spots: He still wants his vax mandate to go through, and the White House is reportedly looking at asking for more “COVID relief” funds.)

Even the CDC has been showing some reason, reducing its recommendations for quarantine down to five days, “even” for kids.

And the Food and Drug Administration is (reluctantly) OK’ing some of the new treatments. But both agencies remain primarily stuck in their old afraid-to-approve-anything-new ways, delaying approval of anti-COVID innovations already in wide use around the world. And the White House (unlike Team Trump) is letting them get away with it.

But New York City’s change of leadership is proving a huge plus. Former Mayor Bill de Blasio was actually pretty good at keeping schools open, but Adams is a true stalwart despite the Omicron panic among many teachers. And Adams’ new schools’ chancellor, David Banks, looks to have good common sense, at least, telling The New York Post: “A lot of time people talk about remote learning, but they talk about that from an adult perspective,” when, “if you listen to this from a student perspective, the kids want to be in school.”

Meanwhile, New York’s new governor has already delivered on her vow to get more detailed info from hospitals — and to share it. On Friday of last week, she revealed that half of the city hospitalizations “with” COVID “involved patients who tested positive after being admitted for ‘non-COVID reasons’ ” —  the statewide figure is about 40%.

That means the rise in hospitalization is less cause for worry since it’s a weak signal of greater actual danger. Plus, as Hochul has also noted, the soaring numbers of people testing positive in this Omicron wave have led to far fewer hospitalizations and death.

Because Omicron is much milder, the gov even urged people not to use the E.R. to get tested unless their symptoms are severe. That makes complete sense: You don’t worry about just what flu or cold virus has hit you; if you’re not really sick, you shouldn’t have any great fear over Omicron; treat the symptoms.

And, as new state Health Commissioner Mary Bassett explained Friday, cases seem to be leveling off as rapidly as they did in South Africa’s Omicron wave.

“I think we can expect a difficult January, but things should be much better by February,” she said.

She also offered comfort to children and their parents, noting that the state still has just 211 kids hospitalized with COVID — up from 14 on Dec. 1, but still a tiny total in a state with 3 million under-18s. And none are in the ICU.

Many folks are still clinging to COVID hysteria, especially among America’s sheltered elites. But after nearly two years, sound sense is finally winning out: MAYBE.

Summary

Did you notice the medical “experts” not mentioned in this diatribe? Fauci, Wollensky, and all of the political purveyors of the Biden “COVID-mantra” are certainly not qualified to weigh in on any of this. Joe Biden? He’s doing good to remember his last name. He certainly cannot remember the names of his cabinet.

The insanity of COVID is best illustrated not by Fauci but by the fact that millions of leaders — OTHER leaders — in the nation just fell in line and joined the COVID march to the hospital. Oh: they all wore their masks the entirety of the trip!

What proves best that a top-to-bottom shuffling of the membership of the U.S. Congress is just how many members embraced the company line on all things COVID and quickly joined Fauci, Biden, and Wollensky to prove to the nation (and the world) that they proudly joined the death march.

It’s the American people, with the assistance of REAL scientists and doctors, who rebuff the mantra of the Heathcare-Political Bureaucracy to embrace the common sense suggestions of thousands of experts — REAL experts — who have treated collectively millions of COVID patients around the world — SUCCESSFULLY!

There’s no need to point to them and their treatment measures. You’ve heard them all, if only in the context of Anthony Fauci et al. disputing every one of their successes with political, elitist thuggery and NOT FACTS!

It’s time to choose. It’s time to demonstrably determine the proper and truthful path for treating those in your family and yourself. And, maybe, more importantly, it’s time to not only push back against the COVID-Mafia and their egregious processes and mandates but to take personal action to do the right thing.

Might Omicron Be Even Less Deadly Than The Flu?

Scientists believe ultra-infectious strain may kill 100 TIMES fewer people than Delta (and mortality rates were ALREADY similar to influenza before the variant emerged)

  • Researchers expect the ultra-infectious variant to kill between 97 and 99 percent fewer people than Delta;
  • U.K. advisers estimate the infection-fatality rate (IFR) stood at 0.25 percent before Omicron emerged;
  • Others suggested it could be 0.1 percent — similar to flu— compared to 1 percent before the vaccine rollout;
  • But experts queried 99 percent estimate, insisting it does not look plausible and there is too much uncertainty.

Omicron could be even less deadly than flu, scientists believe in a boost to hopes that the worst of the pandemic is over. Some experts have always maintained that the coronavirus would eventually morph into a seasonal cold-like virus as the world develops immunity through vaccines and natural infection. But the emergence of the highly-mutated Omicron variant appears to have sped the process up. One analysis shows COVID killed one in 33 people who tested positive at the peak of the devastating second wave last January, compared to just one in 670 now. But experts believe the figure could be even lower because of Omicron. The case fatality rate — the proportion of confirmed infections that end in death — for seasonal influenza is 0.1, the equivalent of one in 1,000.

One former Government adviser Sunday said if the trend continues to drop, then “we should be asking whether we are justified in having any measures we would not bring for a bad flu season.” But other experts say coronavirus is much more transmissible than flu, meaning it will inevitably cause more deaths. Meanwhile, researchers at Washington University modeling the next pandemic stage expect Omicron to kill up to 99 percent fewer people than Delta. In another hint, it could be less deadly than flu.

No accurate infection-fatality rate (IFR), which is always just a fraction of the CFR because it reflects deaths among everyone who catches the virus, has yet been published for Delta. United Kingdom Government advisers estimated the overall figure stood at around 0.25 percent before Omicron burst onto the scene, down from highs of approximately 1.5 percent before the advent of life-saving vaccines. If Omicron is 99 percent less lethal than Delta, it suggests the current IFR could be as low as 0.0025 percent, the equivalent of one in 40,000, although experts say this is unlikely. Instead, the Washington modeling estimates the figure sits in the region of 0.07 percent, meaning approximately one in 1,430 people who get infected will succumb to the illness. Leading researchers estimate flu’s IFR to sit between 0.01 and 0.05 percent but argue comparing rates for the two illnesses is complicated.

Note: Remember, all of our U.S. COVID happenings are seen first in Europe. They always find ways to “jump the pond” to North America. 

Does that mean the above numbers in Europe are headed our way?

U.K. Analysis Of Omicron And Where We Stand

Gideon Meyerowitz-Katz, an epidemiologist at the University of Wollongong in Australia, reported his “very rough best guess” was that triple-jabbed people were at the same risk from Omicron as they are from the flu. “Add the new medications into the mix, and it gets even more complex,” he added. But scientists today leaped on the estimates, saying it was more proof that the worst days of the pandemic were over and that Britain needs to get back on the path to normality.

Professor Robert Dingwall, a former Joint Committee On Vaccination And Immunization (JCVI) member of, and expert in, sociology at Nottingham Trent University, projects it will be a few weeks until there are definitive Omicron fatality rates. Still, if they are consistent with the findings that it is less severe, “we should be asking whether we are justified in having any measures we would not bring for a bad flu season.”

He said: “If we would not have brought in the measures in November 2019, why are we doing it now? What’s the specific justification for doing it? If the severity of Covid infection is falling away to the point that it is comparable with flu, then we really shouldn’t have exceptional levels of intervention.”

There would be no justification in having “any restriction we didn’t previously have’ if the modeling is confirmed in the coming weeks,” Professor Dingwall said. However, he noted that if the U.K. has two respiratory viruses in the population which are capable of producing significant levels of hospitalization, the NHS may need more funding to deal with both COVID and flu to increase its capacity.

Washington University experts who claimed that Omicron would cause 97 to 99 percent fewer deaths than Delta — based on the case and death data — admit their forecasts were more “optimistic” than forecasts used by U.K. Government scientists. The Prime Minister was warned that daily COVID deaths in Britain could breach 6,000 a day this winter under the worst-case scenario of Omicron’s rapid spread. But the doomsday projection, conducted by one of the modeling sub-groups, was branded ”fictitious.”

Daily coronavirus fatalities maxed out at slightly less than 1,400 during the depths of the second wave before ministers embarked on a huge vaccination blitz. And studies show two doses of the current crop of jabs still drastically cut the risk of patients becoming severely ill if they catch the virus, even if they offer little protection against falling ill in the first place.   

Booster vaccines — already dished out to 34 million people across the U.K., or 60.1 percent of people over-12 — bolster immunity even further, real-world evidence shows. Independent academics have queried the University of Washington team’s estimates, saying that they do not look plausible, and there is still lots of uncertainty around Omicron data.

Let’s Put The “Numbers” To These Infections

It’s tough for everyday people to quickly analyze all the numbers, percentages, projections in the context of medical jargon. But these numbers are significant. Why? Because the actual numbers of REAL doctors who treat patients and conduct laboratory testing and combine their first-hand findings of both give us analyses that “experts” like Dr. Fauci and others CANNOT provide. Their advice is almost always second-handed.

Have you ever wondered how many COVID-19 patients Dr. Fauci has personally treated? The answer is simple: ZERO. Yet he spouts 24/7 “facts” about everything to do with COVID-19 like he spent all night in a laboratory after spending all day treating COVID patients on their death beds!

All of that to say this: the REAL numbers and statistics are CRITICAL for you to understand. Let’s put some more of them together.

The researchers did not offer an actual estimate for the IFR of Omicron — which scientists still barely understand, given that it was only detected for the first time in mid-November. The team said: “Based on the available data, we expect the infection-fatality rate will be 97-99 percent lower than for Delta. Huge numbers of infections and moderate numbers of hospitalizations may still translate into a peak of reported (global) daily deaths over 9,000 in early February.”

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) is an independent global health research center at the University of Washington. The IHME team also didn’t offer an estimated IFR for Delta, which first cropped up in India before hitting the U.K. towards the end of spring. Studies showed it was twice as deadly as the original virus, which was thought to have an IFR of around 1.4 percent. But even using that figure would equate to an IFR of approximately 0.03 percent if Omicron was 97 to 99 percent less lethal, making it similar to flu. Their estimates for Omicron — as the strain by January will cause almost every case — correspond to an IFR of around 0.07 percent, according to Professor McConway. This is based on deaths peaking at about 330 per day in Britain.

If Delta caused 97 to 99 percent more deaths than this 0.07 IFR for Omicron, it would have an IFR of up to seven percent, however, highlighting just how difficult it is to nail down an estimate.

Professor Kevin McConway, a statistician at the Open University, suggested IFR of as low as 0.0025 percent was “really, really tiny.” That estimate is based on the rolling IFR, estimated by Cambridge University academics, skewed downwards because of the build-up of natural immunity.

The Washington University experts acknowledge there is uncertainty in their projections, and Professor McConway noted as he said they might have “gotten their numbers wrong somewhere.” But he said the actual projection — of up to 330 deaths per day — was plausible.

IHME calculated IFR based on COVID “seroprevalence data” by age and COVID death figures. (“seroprevalence” is the proportion of a population whose blood serum tests positive for a given pathogen, such as COVID-19)

Real-time IFR can vary drastically in every nation based on previous immunity, the prevalence of obesity and other medical conditions, and the population age structure. Experts also say it is hard to track overall IFR because it is impossible to accurately tell how many people have been infected because not everyone gets tested when they are ill. But they believe the Covid IFR is dropping due to medical interventions.

Dr. Simon Clarke, a microbiologist at Reading University, said that he believes the future of COVID-19 can be “kept in check” with jabs, insisting there was “no question” that vaccines have drastically changed the course of the pandemic. He added: “The immunity we are building up appears to be suppressing new variants from causing severe disease.”

But he warned it was not “inevitable” that the virus would eventually morph into one that merely causes symptoms of the common cold.

This analysis suggests the COVID fatality rate fell to as low as 0.14 percent on December 28 — its lowest ever total — after dropping every day since November 18. The rate is calculated by comparing average death numbers to average-case numbers from two weeks earlier, roughly the amount of time it takes for the disease to take hold, experts say. It means the case-fatality rate was already dropping before the strain truly kicked off in Britain in mid-December, showing vaccines have played an enormous role in thwarting the virus.

But the figure is also skewed slightly by increased levels of testing, with the number of swabs being carried out having shot up by around 245 percent over the past year. Testing in Britain reached its highest ever level in the week leading up to Christmas this year, before peaking on January 4 at more than two million. And data show that cases were predominantly occurring in people aged under-50, who have always been less at risk of dying from the virus. Rates are now only going up in over-60s in London, signaling what may come for the rest of the country.

Professor Paul Hunter, an infectious disease expert at the University of East Anglia, said the COVID fatality rate has been falling in recent weeks in the U.K… Still, some of this “is probably down to delayed reporting of deaths over Christmas.” He said the “fatality rate for Omicron does seem to be lower than we have seen with previous variants and is probably now below 0.2 percent,” similar to the rate for flu.

But nowhere near as many people are tested for the flu compared to COVID, which has seen more than two million Brits get themselves swabbed each day.

Summary

Here’s where Americans find themselves so confused: we hear conflicting stories every day from different “experts” who, we are told, are the best sources of truthful COVID information. But they all change their stories — many times to the exact opposite of their previous “expert” instructions given to us!

The puzzle is that Americans are forced to make “daily” decisions based on the “daily” latest information these experts give to us. And some of our choices are life-and-death. To that end, how are we supposed to know which “experts” to believe and trust?

No, we certainly do not have to believe ANY of them. But that creates a Pandora’s box of issues in that we MUST take action for ourselves and our families. Most Americans have been conditioned to make such choices armed with facts throughout life. And we know where that puts us today!

I feel the mass of that 900-pound gorilla in our living rooms is so consuming because of the politicization of all things COVID-related. Sadly, instead of President Biden leading us by giving us trustworthy answers to our problems and fixes for our dilemmas, he isn’t leading us at all. He is leading some people, but not us. He walks behind us as he whips us and verbally diminishes us for not benignly just falling in line with his political mantra that we are expected to accept as our “medical guidelines.”

Do you believe this president believes he is accurate with all the things he tells Americans? Not only do I believe that. I’m confident that he believes we believe him! And, of course, anyone who verbally disagrees with him is immediately branded as anti-VAXX, MAGA supporter, or, even worse, a Republican! (which I’m NOT)

We can get honest answers. But doing so requires diligence and patience. Seldom do these experts who control the narrative about COVID give us raw facts. Worse than that is even when they KNOW the truth, they brand the truths and those who present them in public as conspiracy theories and those who spread them, conspirators.

Truth matters, doesn’t it? So let’s dig until we find it…find it ALL!

Forty-Five Years Of Mask Studies Prove THEY’RE WORTHLESS!

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. H.L. Mencken

The masking of America, especially our children, has been detrimental to our mental and physical health. I weep when I see parents put these evil things on their little ones.

This article is for parents with children in our government schools. The following information must be distributed to school boards that will not listen to worried parents. Use it to save your little ones!

DOJ Calls Parents “Domestic Terrorists”

Parents who are standing up against the masking of their children at school board meetings are being threatened. Attorney General Merrick Garland admits he took the word of the National School Boards Administration that parents voicing concerns at their local school board meetings should be targeted as “domestic terrorists.”

Citing an increase in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school board members, teachers, and workers in our nation’s government-run schools, AG Garland met with federal, state, tribal, territorial, and local law enforcement leaders to discuss strategies for addressing this “disturbing trend.” What? Parents concerned for their children is a “disturbing trend?”

However, when Garland was questioned by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), not one citing of intimidation or violence could be shown by parents across the USA against any school board members. The lies of the stakeholder authoritarians keep piling up.

At an elementary school in Portland, Oregon, kindergartners were videotaped eating lunch outside and sitting on buckets socially distanced in 40-degree weather. That is child abuse, and parents are infuriated. State and local health departments are still mandating masks for school children, and parents have realized how detrimental masks are to their child’s mental and physical health. They’ve complained to their local school boards.

The mask tyranny has even hit the red state of Tennessee in Shelby County. Parents were enraged that they weren’t allowed into the board meeting and police were there to keep them out.

Oxygen Deprivation

Research reveals that prolonged use of COVID masks, homemade or N95, can cause anywhere from five percent on up to 20 percent loss of oxygen, leading to hypercapnia (excessive carbon dioxide in the bloodstream typically caused by inadequate respiration), panic attacks, vertigo, double vision, tinnitus, concentration issues, headaches, slowed reactions, seizures, alterations in blood chemistry and suffocation due to air displacement.

We are killing our children! Wake up, America, and get these things off your children’s faces!

We cannot allow children to breathe in exhaled carbon dioxide (CO2) continually. Even the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a stakeholder in this vile jab for Sars-coV-2, states this is dangerous to your health. It can lead to a light-headed, dizzy, flustered feeling from repeatedly re-breathing back in your own already processed air. Those are just the beginning warning signs of much more severe health problems.

According to Amesh A. Adalja, MD, and senior scholar at Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in Maryland, “wearing a mask day in and day out can lead to alterations in blood chemistry,” and that leads to “changes in the level of consciousness.”

A German neurologist, Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson, MD, Ph.D. (in pharmacology), specializing in neurotoxicology and environmental medicine, warns that oxygen deprivation from prolonged Covid-mask wearing can cause permanent neurological damage. She states in her research, “The re-breathing of our exhaled air will without a doubt create oxygen deficiency and flooding of carbon dioxide. We know that the human brain is susceptible to oxygen deprivation. There are nerve cells, for example, in the hippocampus, that can’t be longer than 3 minutes without oxygen – they cannot survive. The acute warning symptoms are headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, issues in concentration, slowing down of the reaction time – reactions of the cognitive system.”

People think they’ve gotten used to wearing masks, but what they’re accustomed to is having less oxygen in their brains. They no longer mind the masks because once a person has chronic oxygen deprivation, all of those symptoms disappear. The person gets accustomed to the deprived state; however, their efficiency remains impaired, and the lack of appropriate oxygen delivery to the brain continues to progress dangerously. They are losing their minds.

People have fallen for the fear factor of this virus with a 99.8% recovery that they are wearing their masks in their cars, homes, outdoors, or exercising. Children are forced to wear their masks all day at school, with minimal or zero mask breaks, even during recess. This is child abuse!

Masking Our Wee Ones

The oxygen deprivation mask syndrome is sweeping the globe, and more are at risk.

Dr. Mark McDonald, a double board-certified clinical psychiatrist, told of the damage to our children. Dr. McDonald said, “We’re not in a medical pandemic. We’re in a fear pandemic.”

He believes that what is driving the fear now is propaganda. He said that children, unlike adults, don’t just bounce back; those children will not regain their psychological health. As a child psychiatrist, he treats children all day long.

He stated, “The developmental stage children need to go through — babies, toddlers, young adults — is being foreclosed on them. Brown University Department of Pediatrics published a study in mid-September that found that babies born after January 1, 2020, when this whole pandemic started, had an I.Q. Point drop of 20 points compared to babies born before January 1, 2020. That’s huge! Why? They don’t see faces; they don’t play; they don’t have exposure to friends; they don’t go to school. They’re locked in their homes looking at their parents for two years, and their brains have not developed.”

“My concern is that we are building a generation of young people who are so traumatized that they will never fully recover from this. Even if we give them therapy and treatment, they will always be damaged from this and be scarred emotionally. I don’t mean for it to be depressing. I mean for it to be alarming so that everyone can finally say, ‘STOP.’ We’ve got to stop the damage and then figure out what to do about it.”

It’s way past time to acknowledge what has been done wrong, and the biggest problem was masks on children who rarely get or pass the virus. To close their faces off from their peers and to wear face diapers in public is a developmental atrocity to our youth; I see it as child abuse. Many parents home school, and those children have no social disabilities. Still, masks are a blockage that destroys interpersonal relationships and changes the lives of these children for decades to come. And they destroy the brains of these youngsters by depriving them of proper oxygen.

Fear is a great driver. When fear is in people’s minds, they don’t want much public discourse. They don’t want much discussion. They want to be told what to do. The easiest thing to do is to defer to some agency. The agencies who are calling the shots here are ones that typically don’t call the shots.

The FDA doesn’t tell doctors how to treat patients. The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) is a drug regulatory, drug safety watchdog agency. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) don’t tell doctors how to treat patients. They’re a government-funded research organization. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) certainly doesn’t because they’re an infectious and chronic disease, epidemiologic and analytic organization. We should not look to those groups to advise physicians on treating patients.

Nor should we look to other unelected parties to tell us what to do, including our local health departments, who have advocated mandates that are destructive not only to children but to all citizenry. And the latest is the euphemistically named Congressional bill H.R.550 (Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act of 2021), which paves the way for state and local health departments and public and private health care providers to share personal health data with the federal government. The bill has hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars allocated to the tracking system’s success.

Mask Studies

Do masks work? The best studies suggest they don’t, appeared in The Washington Examiner on August 12, 2021. (Please read the short article.)

“Of the 14 Randomized Controlled Trials (RCT) that have tested the effectiveness of masks in preventing the transmission of respiratory viruses, three suggest but do not provide any statistically significant evidence in the intention-to-treat analysis that masks might be useful. The other eleven suggest that masks are either useless — whether compared with no masks or because they appear not to add to good hand hygiene alone — or counterproductive. Of the three studies that provided statistically significant evidence in intention-to-treat analysis that was not contradicted within the same study, one found that the combination of surgical masks and hand hygiene was less effective than hand hygiene alone, one found that the combination of surgical masks and hand hygiene was less effective than nothing, and one found that cloth masks were less effective than surgical masks.”

One free-thinking university professor at New York University was finally cleared for questioning masks in his class on propaganda. Mark Crispin Miller took the stance of many independent scientists, questioning some of the motives of government and public health officials, as well as their often-vacillating stances on COVID-19. Both students and professors found it reprehensible that Miller was “thinking outside the box.”

Detrimental Surgical Masks

In August of this year, I wrote an article, The Mask Nazis Have Blood on their hands, and told the story of Dr. Orr, who found that not wearing surgical masks cut infections in half. When I’ve told people about this, they wanted the article.

“Dr. Orr was a surgeon in the Severalls Surgical Unit in Colchester. And for six months, from March through August 1980, the surgeons and staff in that unit decided to see what would happen if they did not wear masks during surgeries. They wore no masks for six months and compared the rate of surgical wound infections from March through August 1980 with the rate of wound infections from March through August of the previous four years. And they discovered, to their amazement, that when nobody wore masks during surgeries, the rate of wound infections was less than half what it was when everyone wore masks.”

Their conclusion: “It would appear that minimum contamination can best be achieved by not wearing a mask at all” and that wearing a mask during surgery “is a standard procedure that could be abandoned.”

Dr. Arthur Firstenberg took all of this further in his research and published the following in August of 2020. He scoured the medical literature, sure that this was a fluke and that newer studies must show the utility of masks in preventing the spread of disease. But, “the medical literature for the past forty-five years has been consistent: masks are useless in preventing the spread of disease and, if anything, are unsanitary objects that themselves spread bacteria and viruses.”

Here are his amazing findings:

  • Ritter et al., in 1975, found that “the wearing of a surgical face mask did not affect the overall operating room environmental contamination.”
  • Ha’eri and Wiley, in 1980, applied human albumin microspheres to the interior of surgical masks in 20 operations. At the end of each procedure, wound washings were examined under the microscope. “Particle contamination of the wound was demonstrated in all experiments.”
  • Laslett and Sabin, in 1989, found that caps and masks were not necessary during cardiac catheterization. “No infections were found in any patient, regardless of whether a cap or mask was used,” they wrote. Sjøl and Kelbaek came to the same conclusion in 2002.
  • In Tunevall’s 1991 study, a general surgical team wore no masks in half of their surgeries for two years. After 1,537 operations performed with masks, the wound infection rate was 4.7%, while after 1,551 operations performed without masks, the wound infection rate was only 3.5%.
  • A review by Skinner and Sutton in 2001 concluded that “The evidence for discontinuing the use of surgical face masks would appear to be stronger than the evidence available to support their continued use.
  • Lahme et al., in 2001, wrote that “surgical face masks worn by patients during regional anesthesia, did not reduce the concentration of airborne bacteria over the operation field in our study. Thus they are dispensable.”
  • Figueiredo et al., in 2001, reported that in five years of doing peritoneal dialysis without masks, rates of peritonitis in their unit were no different than rates in hospitals where masks were worn.
  • Bahli did a systematic literature review in 2009 and found that “no significant difference in the incidence of postoperative wound infection was observed between masks groups and groups operated with no masks.
  • Surgeons at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, recognizing the lack of evidence supporting the use of masks, ceased requiring them in 2010 for anesthesiologists and other non-scrubbed personnel in the operating room. “Our decision to no longer require routine surgical masks for personnel not scrubbed for surgery is a departure from common practice. But the evidence to support this practice does not exist,” wrote Dr. Eva Sellden.
  • Webster et al., in 2010, reported on obstetric, gynecological, general, orthopedic, breast, and urological surgeries performed on 827 patients. All non-scrubbed staff wore masks in half the surgeries, and none of the non-scrubbed staff wore masks in half the surgeries. Surgical site infections occurred in 11.5% of the Mask group and in only 9.0% of the No Mask group.
  • Lipp and Edwards reviewed the surgical literature in 2014 and found “no statistically significant difference in infection rates between the masked and unmasked group in any of the trials.” Vincent and Edwards updated this review in 2016, and the conclusion was the same.
  • Carøe, in a 2014 review based on four studies and 6,006 patients, wrote that “none of the four studies found a difference in the number of postoperative infections whether you used a surgical mask or not.”
  • Salassa and Swiontkowski, in 2014, investigated the necessity of scrubs, masks, and head coverings in the operating room and concluded that “there is no evidence that these measures reduce the prevalence of surgical site infection.”
  • Da Zhou et al., reviewing the literature in 2015, concluded that “there is a lack of substantial evidence to support claims that facemasks protect either patient or surgeon from infectious contamination.”

Schools in China are now prohibiting students from wearing masks while exercising. Why? Because it was killing them. It was depriving them of oxygen, and it was killing them. At least three children died during Physical Education classes — two of them ran on their school’s track while wearing a mask. And a 26-year-old man suffered a collapsed lung after running two and a half miles while wearing a mask.

Mandating masks has not kept death rates down anywhere. The 20 U.S. states that have never ordered people to wear face masks indoors and out have dramatically lower COVID-19 death rates than the 30 states that have mandated masks. Most of the no-mask states have COVID-19 death rates below 20 per 100,000 population, and none have a death rate higher than 55. All 13 states with death rates higher than 55 have required the wearing of masks in all public places. It has not protected them.

“We are living in an atmosphere of permanent illness, of meaningless separation,” writes Benjamin Cherry in the Summer 2020 issue of New View magazine. A separation that is destroying lives, souls, and nature.

Conclusion

This last portion of this article should be used by the many parents fighting school boards who want to put these horrid face diapers on children for many hours every day. Feel free to distribute widely. God help us to get these evil things off everyone’s faces, especially the wee ones.

Hospitals Make Billions From “Politically Correct” Care Given To COVID-19 Patients

Let’s be honest from the beginning: Medicare patients — 65 and older — are those who reside in the epicenter for this COVID explosion. What does that mean? It means that Medicare dollars are snatched up in much greater numbers for COVID-19 treatment of Medicare patients than private insurance companies pay for in-patient care for non-Medicare patients.

Crazy numbers have been thrown about by many making outlandish claims that hospitals are gouging the federal government for their treatment of Medicare patients. But, in our commitment to total honesty, hospitals DO get much more reimbursement from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for treating in-patient Medicare patients for COVID-19 treatment while they are hospitalized.

Before we clear the air for you on this subject, let’s look at a reimbursement claim made publicly by a well-known physician. That’s interesting, but what is MORE interesting are the results of that doctor’s claims when several Fact-Check organizations took him to task:

The claim: Hospitals get paid more if patients are listed as COVID-19, and on ventilators

Sen. Scott Jensen (R-MN), a physician in Minnesota, was interviewed by “The Ingraham Angle” host Laura Ingraham on April 8 on Fox News and claimed hospitals get paid more if Medicare patients are listed as having COVID-19 and get three times as much money if they need a ventilator. The claim was published April 9 by The Spectator, a conservative publication. WorldNetDaily shared it on April 10 and, according to Snopes, a related meme was shared on social media in mid-April.

Jensen took it to his own Facebook page April 15, saying, in part:

“How can anyone not believe that increasing the number of COVID-19 deaths may create an avenue for states to receive a larger portion of federal dollars. Already some states are complaining that they are not getting enough of the CARES Act dollars because they are having significantly more proportional COVID-19 deaths.”

On April 19, he doubled down on his assertion via video on his Facebook page.

Jensen said, “Hospital administrators might well want to see COVID-19 attached to a discharge summary or a death certificate. Why? Because if it’s straightforward, garden-variety pneumonia that a person is admitted to the hospital for – if they’re Medicare – typically, the diagnosis-related group lump sum payment would be $5,000. But if it’s COVID-19 pneumonia, then it’s $13,000, and if that COVID-19 pneumonia patient ends up on a ventilator, it goes up to $39,000.”

Jensen clarified in the video that he doesn’t think physicians are “gaming the system” so much as other “players,” such as hospital administrators, who he said may pressure physicians to cite all diagnoses, including “probable” COVID-19, on discharge papers or death certificates to get the higher Medicare allocation allowed under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act. Past practice, Jensen said, did not include probabilities.

He noted that some states, including his home state of Minnesota, as well as California, list only laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 diagnoses. Others, specifically New York, list all presumed cases, which is allowed under guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as of mid-April and which will result in a larger payout.

Jensen said he thinks the overall number of COVID-19 cases have been undercounted based on limitations in the number of tests available.

Provisions in the relief act

The coronavirus relief legislation created a 20% premium, or add-on, for COVID-19 Medicare patients. There have been no public reports that hospitals are exaggerating COVID-19 numbers to receive higher Medicare payments.

Jensen didn’t explicitly make that claim. He simply suggested there is an “avenue” to do so now that “plausible” COVID-19, not just laboratory-confirmed, cases can be greenlighted for Medicare payment and eligible for the 20% add-on allowed under the relief act. The initial $30 billion – out of $100 billion – in the grants dedicated to health care providers to address the pandemic was disbursed according to 2019 Medicare reimbursements.

The second wave will focus on providers in areas more heavily affected by the outbreak, according to Kaiser Health News, giving rise to Jensen’s concern that hospitals could exploit the CDC’s guidelines allowing presumed cases.

Jensen did not return an email request from USA TODAY for comment about his claim.USA TODAY reached out to Marty Makary, a surgeon and professor of health policy and management at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, about the claim. Makary said in an email April 21 that “what Scott Jensen said sounds right to me.”

What Did the “Experts” — the Fact-Checkers — Say About These Numbers?

  • Snopes investigated the claim, finding it’s plausible Medicare pays in the range Jensen mentions but doesn’t have a “one-size-fits-all” payment to hospitals for COVID-19 patients. As explained by nurse Elizabeth Davis in her piece for verywellhealth.com, each hospital has a base payment rate assigned by Medicare. It considers national and regional trends, including labor costs and varying health care resources in each market. Then, each diagnosis-related group, which classifies various diagnoses in groups and subgroups, is assigned a weight based on the average amount of resources it takes to care for a patient. Those figures are multiplied to determine the payment from Medicare. A hospital in one city and state may be paid more or less for treating a patient than a hospital in another.
  • PolitiFact reporter Tom Kertscher wrote, “The dollar amounts Jensen cited are roughly what we found in an analysis published April 7 by the Kaiser Family Foundation, a leading source of health information.”
  • Ask FactCheck weighed in on April 21: “The figures cited by Jensen generally square with estimated Medicare payments for COVID-19 hospitalizations, based on average Medicare payments for patients with similar diagnoses.” Ask FactCheck reporter Angelo Fichera, who interviewed Jensen, noted, “Jensen said he did not think that hospitals were intentionally misclassifying cases for financial reasons. But that’s how his comments have been widely interpreted and paraded on social media.” Ask FactCheck’s conclusion: “Recent legislation pays hospitals higher Medicare rates for COVID-19 patients and treatment, but there is no evidence of fraudulent reporting.”

Julie Aultman, a member of the editorial board of the American Medical Association’s Journal of Ethics, told PolitiFact it is “improbable that physicians or hospitals will falsify data or be motivated by money to do so.”

Our ruling: True

We rate the claim that hospitals get paid more if patients are listed as COVID-19 and on ventilators as TRUE. Hospitals and doctors do get paid more for Medicare patients diagnosed with COVID-19 or if it’s considered presumed they have COVID-19 absent a laboratory-confirmed test, and three times more if the patients are placed on a ventilator to cover the cost of care and loss of business resulting from a shift in focus to treat COVID-19 cases.

This higher allocation of funds has been made possible under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act through a Medicare 20% add-on to its regular payment for COVID-19 patients, as verified by USA TODAY through the American Hospital Association Special Bulletin on the topic.

Summary

Please note the following for clarification on the taxpayer dollars expended for COVID-19 hospital care:

  1. Indeed, the additional reimbursement for COVID-19 patients comes chiefly (but not solely) from CARES Act funding;
  2. You might remember we reported exactly what CMS released as to the specifics to be paid to Medicare patients for the “add-ons:” in-patient treatment including formal  Intensive Care hospitalization, Remdisivir IV treatment, intubation, and a massive financial boost for placing a patient on a ventilator. However, shortly after we published that story, the CMS retracted that bulletin;
  3. The “bonus” hospitals receive from Medicare for an ill COVID-19 patient is between 20% additional to the amount paid for similar respiratory treatments to 80% more. A critical COVID-19 patient that receives the “whole banana” of these treatments will have a Medicare bill of at least $75,000, and if patient survival is longer than one week, it can reach $100,000-$150,000;
  4. There definitely are massive financial incentives for hospitals to “up-code” the status of Medicare COVID-19 patients to assure they receive ALL of the above treatments.

To get a handle on the gross revenue and profit pictures of hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic, all one must do is find their publicly released financial profit and loss statements. (If they’re publicly-traded “for-profit” hospitals, their P&L reports are published online) Ask for the previous two years of such statements for comparison purposes.

The bottom line is this: hospitals have made BILLIONS of net dollars through the pandemic, much of which is due to their treating Medicare patients. No one should denigrate hospitals for additional profits for simply responding to the needs of the critically ill. But we should examine — no, “investigate” — hospitals that have very publicly taken advantage of critically ill seniors by forcing these COVID-specific and costly treatments on patients without consultation with family members.

You DO know that patients have legal rights regarding medical treatment by any healthcare provider, don’t you? There have been numerous cases of hospitals treating COVID-19 patients whose family members wanted to alter their care, and the hospitals refuse to do so. We reported one such case in Chicago recently when an Asian daughter rushed to her father’s side when the hospital declared his case hopeless. She wanted to try Ivermectin. The hospital refused that treatment. She was forced into a legal battle that raged between the hospital and a district judge for a week. The hospital declined to follow the judge’s ruling and allow treatment by Ivermectin.

That story ended well. A doctor of the daughter’s choosing came to the hospital, treated her father with Ivermectin, and he walked out of the hospital days later.

A similar case was resolved only last week in an identical case in North Carolina.

Again, don’t assume that EVERY healthcare institution and healthcare professional are “in-the-tank” for profit and therefore are gouging Medicare. But also, don’t assume that NO ONE is doing that!

What do we warn you often here at TruthNewsNetwork? “The love of money is the root of all evil.”

When there are ever any questions about the motive of those involved in any type of operation, one should always “follow the money!”

COVID-19 World is NO different.

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.
