2A: Last week, President Lies-a-Lot said that, “from the day it was passed, [the Second Amendment has] limited the type of people who could own a gun and what type of weapon you could own. You couldn’t buy a cannon!

In 1791, when the Second Amendment was ratified, there were no federal or state laws about the type of weapons you could or could not own.

BORDER: This week, South Dakota and Iowa joined Florida, Nebraska, and Idaho in committing to police and National Guard troops to help Texas and Arizona control FAUXTUS’ mess at the border.

CHICOMS: Over the past two decades, organ transplanting in Communist China has grown into a billion dollar industry, with hundreds of hospitals and thousands of surgeons providing transplant surgeries. In most Western countries, people wait months or years for an organ, while some die still waiting. But in China, transplant wait times are reportedly as short as some weeks, days, or even hours.

Chinese officials claim the organs are coming from voluntary donors, including death row inmates, but the numbers don’t make sense. For example, in 2018, China had only 6,000 official organ donors who allegedly provided more than 18,000 organs. An international and independent investigation done that year concluded that the organs are actually being stolen from political prisoners, largely those imprisoned for refusing the atheistic government’s demand that they renounce their religious beliefs.

Sayragul Sauytbay, a survivor who escaped, reported the same in her book, “The Chief Witness: Escape from China’s Modern-Day Concentration Camps.” She says young, healthy inmates who had medical files marked with a red X would just disappear. “It was simply a fact that the Party took organs from prisoners.

COVID-19: The 16,000+ deaths were politically attributed to the coronavirus based on positive PCR tests. The PCR test has been demonstrated to be so oversensitive that it will pop positive for people who have zero symptoms.

We live in a fraud of unprecedented dimensions,” wrote Andre Dias. “If these figures are of the same order of magnitude for other countries as well, and there is no reason to assume otherwise, then the plague is a deception of unprecedented proportions and crimes committed against humanity on a huge scale have been committed here.”

KINDNESS: It was 40°F out when a California couple stopped at McD’s and spotted a homeless man wearing shorts. They wanted to go buy the guy some pants, but feared he’d be gone before they got back. Unable to bear the idea of the man sleeping on a cold sidewalk with bare legs, the hubby asked him if he could give him his own pants. Hubby didn’t know his wife was filming his selfless act.

NEW HAMPSHIRE: On Friday, Gov. Chris Sununu signed legislation Friday that included a ban on state-funding for abortions at or after 24 weeks gestation. It does not allow exceptions for rape, incest, or fetal anomaly.Sununu is pro-abortion, but said he wasn’t going to veto an entire budget bill over that one item.

The budget bill also establishes a voucher-like “education freedom account program,” allowing families to use state aid to cover the expense of private and home schooling and bans “divisive concepts related to sex and race” from state-funded programs and contracts.

OLYMPICS: [10:16] – On Sunday, Sydney McLaughlin broke the world record in the women’s 400-meter hurdles, winning a place on our Olympic team. She is giving all of the glory to God. “I really cannot do anything more but give the glory to Him at this point.”

BORDER: So far this year, Border Patrol agents have arrested 353 illegal aliens with sex-related criminal convictions. This represents a 543% increase over 2019 and 2020. A large number of this year’s detainees have had prior convictions for crimes involving a minor.

CALIFORNIA: On January 1, California started letting prisoners choose their gender identity for purposes of placement — and even bodily searches — regardless of sex reassignment surgery or hormone therapy.

During the first few months, transfers were a trickle, but lately they’ve sped up dramatically … maybe because perverts figured out there is no method to screen out males who are using the system to prey on women.

Female inmates are not allowed to refuse to share a cell with a biological male and can face serious discipline for defending themselves against physical attack. In addition, many female prisoners are abuse survivors. They’re making sleep schedules so that one woman is always on watch to make sure no one gets raped.

ENTITLED BRAT: Gwen Berry is a US hammer thrower you never heard of before. Except now everybody has, because she turned away from the American flag as the National Anthem played while she and two other athletes stood on the podium at the Olympic trials on Saturday. After the Anthem played, she held up a black shirt that said “Activist Athlete” on it.

Berry was on the podium, because she had just qualified for her second US Olympic team. Lots of folks are pointing out, quite rightly, that she’s welcome to move to some other country if she doesn’t like representing this one.

Meanwhile, she says she’s pissed because they apparently only played the anthem once a day and she thought they did it while she was on the podium to disrespect her. Right. Cuz everything is about YOU, little brown snowflake. NOT.

The anthem doesn’t speak for me. It never has,” she says. But lest we think she’s just another Olympic athlete, she’s an activist. “My purpose and my mission is bigger than sports,” Berry said. “I’m here to represent those … who died due to systemic racism. That’s the important part. That’s why I’m going. That’s why I’m here today.

Funny thing how she seemed to be there to win medals and maybe score some lucrative sponsorships. But no. We need to RESPECT her, because she’s like a martyr to the cause. Or something. I wonder how many people who worked their butts off for years, but didn’t make the cut, wish they could be “just another Olympic athlete.”

FAKEBOOK: The Texas Supreme Court has ruled that Facebook could be held liable if sex traffickers use the platform to prey on children. The ruling was made following three Houston-area lawsuits involving teenage trafficking victims who alleged that they met their abusers through Facebook’s messaging service.

We do not understand Section 230 to ‘create a lawless no-man’s-land on the Internet’ in which states are powerless to impose liability on websites that knowingly or intentionally participate in the evil of online human trafficking,” the Supreme Court’s majority wrote.

NORTH CAROLINA: Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed a Republican-backed bill that would have banned providers from performing abortions due to a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome.

He looks pretty pleased with himself, but I’m thinking he won’t be grinning when he faces the Father at judgment.

COVID-19 Update

The delta variant of the Wuhan virus is reportedly pushing the original, or alpha, form out of the picture. But in typical fashion, instead of giving us scientific facts, Dr. Fauci gives us more “stay afraid” spin.

Worse even than Fauci’s spin is what FAUXTUS said, which was just a blatant lie. “The Delta variant is more contagious, it’s deadlier, and it’s spreading quickly around the world – leaving young, unvaccinated people more vulnerable than ever. Please, get vaccinated if you haven’t already. Let’s head off this strain before it’s too late.

The first and foremost thing everyone needs to understand is that the delta variant is more contagious, but less deadly than the alpha version of the virus that came from Wuhan. In the graph below, you can see that, as the delta variant has taken over in the U.K., it has had no impact on hospitalizations.

The second thing everyone needs to understand is that getting or having gotten the mRNA vaccine may not help with variants, because it does not contain weakened or killed viruses. It contains mRNA that instructs the body to make spike proteins, a small part of the alpha form virus. There’s no guarantee any of the variants have that same protein.

Natural immunity and true vaccine immunity (from a weakened or killed virus) are superior to the mRNA gene therapy shots, because they are flexible enough to kick into high gear when challenged by viruses that are similar to the original. E.g., variants. For example, I remember reading that people who had recovered from SARS-CoV-1 seemed to either not get COVID-19 (aka, SARS-CoV-2) or else only got mild cases. Scientists speculated that SARS-1 is similar enough to SARS-2 to trigger an immune response.

Extrapolating from this idea, we can see why the delta variant – which is more contagious, but less lethal – will help us achieve true herd immunity. And this should be good news for all of us. But the Left doesn’t want us to feel good. They want us locked down and afraid. They also want Big Pharma to sell taxpayers more of that sometimes lethal, sometimes useless mRNA vaccine.

Getting back to the graphic at the top. Note that Fauci did not say that the delta variant is the biggest threat “to the U.S.” He said it is the biggest threat “to our effort to eliminate COVID-19.”

And that’s just absurd. Eliminating COVID-19 isn’t even a goal. Herd immunity is the goal. We’re never going to eliminate this virus any more than we eliminated the bug that caused the famous 1918 pandemic. What happened with that one is what will happen with this one. A) It will mutate into something less lethal and B) we will achieve herd immunity.

Now, let’s take a look at one more example I just came across that demonstrates the appalling dishonesty of Fauci and co. In the OBP article linked below, it says: “All the vaccines authorized for use in the U.S. appear, in general, to provide powerful protection against all the variants, including Delta. But the rapid spread of the variants is still raising concern because of the large number of people who remain unvaccinated.”

The “in general” hyperlink goes to an NPR article (linked below) reporting on a small study showing that “giving organ transplant recipients a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine could boost their protection against the coronavirus.” IOW, the underlined blue words give the impression that they go to evidence supporting the statement, when in fact they do not.

Here’s another fun thing I found. (And by fun, I mean totally infuriating.) In December 2020, Israel initiated a massive vaccination effort that has resulted in about 63% of the population getting the shots; then, in March, there was a sudden increase in COVID deaths. These two facts provide us with some excellent data about how the vaccines are performing in the real world. And it’s nothing for Fauci or Big Pharma to write home about.

In Israel, vaccinated COVID-19 death rates are a little more than three times greater than unvaccinated death rates. If you look at the raw numbers, it’s obvious that the total number of deaths and cases has gone way down. But since the vaccinated are suffering more, one might conclude that they were going to go down anyway. So are we doing more harm than good with these experimental vaccines?

Full disclosure: AP reports, “Nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now are in people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been and an indication that deaths per day — now down to under 300 — could be practically zero if everyone eligible got the vaccine.” Frankly, I don’t trust diddly squat that Dr. Fauci, the CDC, the WHO, or the U.S. media says about the Wu Flu. They’ve been proven again and again to be LIARS. If it’s down to who is keeping better records, I have to go with the Israelis.

Here are just some of the questions about the Wuhan Flu that I want answers to.

  1. How many of the 600,000 Americans who died during the pandemic died with COVID, not because of COVID?
  2. How many of the people who got seriously ill or died were deficient in Vitamin D and/or zinc at the time they became infected?
  3. How many of the people who got seriously ill or died were never given early treatment?
  4. How many people have been killed or permanently damaged by the under-tested, over-hyped vaccine?
  5. How many of them need help they won’t get because the government gave Big Pharma immunity?

These are important questions. Sadly, the chances of us getting answers are in the same “slim to none” ballpark where resides the likelihood that I will submit to any COVID vaccine.

AUTISM: Do you remember back when how a whole lot of people believed vaccines were contributing to the explosion of autism in kids and how the CDC assured us in 2004 that SCIENCE had proven they really didn’t?

Now, it turns out one of the senior scientists at the CDC has admitted that he and his coauthors literally threw away data showing that African-American boys who received the MMR vaccine before the age of 3 were statistically more likely to develop autism.

We “all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can.

However, because I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA and DOJ requests, I kept hard copies of all documents in my office, and I retained all associated computer files.

He’s real sorry now. But he still works for the CDC; they won’t let him talk to anyone about this.

BORDER: They say the only reason VFAUXTUS finally went to somewhere kinda near the southern border is because Trump announced he was going. She’s been FAUXTUS’ border czar for 3 months. (How many minutes was it that Democrats shrieked about Dubya delaying his trip to Katrina?) And she didn’t even go to the actual border.

Harris didn’t even go to the actual border. She visited a Border Patrol station about nine miles from the Rio Grande, talked to some immigration activists and legal service providers, posed for press photos back at the airport, and departed for Los Angeles before 1 p.m.” – Sen. John Cornyn [TX-R]

Given how the Slime Stream Media props up the Party of Dementia, it’s extraordinary that the American people have managed to figure out that the FAUXTUS administration’s handling of immigration is FUBAR. A recent poll found:

80% believe illegal immigration has become a serious issue.

68% believe the administration is encouraging more illegal immigration.

55% believe Trump’s border measures ought to be put back in place or should have never been altered.

FACEBOOK’S NON-FACTS: Fakebook slapped a Fact Check on this image: “Draft Research About Hydroxychloroquine As COVID-19 Drug Does NOT Yet Warrant Calling It A Cure.” But NOTHING about the graphic even suggests that HCQ might be a cure.

FARMERS: CLICK https://rumble.com/vj46tr-democrats-refusal-to-maintain-calif.-water-infrastructure-leaving-residents.html [4:15] to hear how Gov. Newsom is refusing to provide water to the farmers who feed us. Are food shortages part of their plan to force socialism?

GEORGIA: On Thursday, a Georgia Superior Court judge allowed the five members of Fulton County’s Board of Registration and Elections to be named in an election-related lawsuit, clearing the way for an intensive audit of 2020 absentee ballots in Georgia’s largest county.

The lead attorney for two of the petitioners said, “This is a huge victory for everyone who wants to get to the truth about the way in which Fulton County mishandled the absentee ballot count.”

HEART INFLAMMATION: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been forced to add a warning to the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines regarding the risk these vaccines carry for causing heart disease.

Health officials say the risk is outweighed by the vaccine’s benefits, even though more than 1,200 cases of pericarditis or myocarditis have occurred in vaccinated individuals aged 30 or younger.

Individuals 30 and younger have a truly tiny risk of becoming seriously ill from the coronavirus, while some of these formerly healthy young people are now dead because of the vaccine!

REVOLUTION: Liam Brooks at American Thinker asks, “What will happen to the useful idiots when the commies seize absolute power in this once great Republic.” By way of an answer, he quotes Daniel Greenfield at Front Page Magazine –

A proper Marxist regime has little use for militant minorities, feminism, gay rights, police defunding, transgender bathrooms, pipeline protests, abortion, or any of the other issues the radicals have been using to waste our time. If you doubt that, go look at how many of any of the above you can find in China, Cuba, or North Korea. …

After a brief permissive period, the Soviet Union criminalized homosexuality and insisted on traditional marriages and roles for women. Those feminists who resisted were soon shown their place with one of the more notorious free love figures being forcibly married off by Lenin.

VAX: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said last week that 4,115 fully vaccinated people have been hospitalized and 750 have died from COVID-19. Seventy-six percent of hospitalizations and deaths from breakthrough cases occurred among individuals over the age of 65.

Given that 90 percent of the new cases have been caused by the so-called Delta COVID-19 variant, it seems suspiciously likely that the vaccines only protect against the original strain. They’re not real vaccines, with weakened or killed virus, that stimulate an immune response to the entire virus. They are mRNA gene therapies that stimulate the body to make just the spike protein on the original strain, which then stimulates an immune response to the spike protein on the original strain. It’s quite possible that, unlike natural immunity, this mRNA vaccine immunity is blind to variants.

VOTER INTEGRITY: SMART elections has published a report about the recent primary polling place in Brooklyn where they found huge discrepancies between the numbers of voters who signed in and the numbers of ballots that were cast during multiple sessions.

They also say that their attempts to report these problems has been met with hostility and obstruction.

Due to the obstacles placed in front of us, we are unfortunately unable to report to candidates or the public that the primary election in Brooklyn New York is being conducted fairly and accurately in all locations.”

Who was it who said, “The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide.” Oh yeah … Barack Obama.

Losing the plot on COVID

By Dan Rabil, via The American Thinker.

What happens when a population of introverts, hypochondriacs, and obsessive-compulsives is continuously bombarded with messages to seclude and disinfect themselves, for fear that COVID-19 prickle-balls lurk everywhere, waiting to attack?

What happens is that emotionally damaged people start driving bad politics and bad policy.

“Fifteen days to flatten the curve.” That phrase is surely now banned by corporate media, for it reminds us how the supposedly acute health threat of March 2020 was repeatedly re-packaged to keep populations off-balance and out of business not for 15 days, but for 15 months.

Never in modern times has a health issue been so flagrantly politicized, nor wielded as a club, as the Wuhan virus has been. Outside a few rational locales, almost every nation drank the COVID Kool-Aid, competing to see who could enforce the stupidest rules.

Naturally, academia would lead the way:

Among Americans aged 15–24, a total of 587 died of COVID in 2020, according to the CDC, representing about 0.16%, or about 1 in 642, of COVID deaths. If you are young, you have essentially no chance of dying of COVID. The low youth mortality impact from COVID was known by April 2020.

Yet many universities now require these low-risk young people to inject the experimental vaccine or be banished from campus. Did you already catch the WuFlu and have antibodies? Too bad. The great pulsating brains of academia cannot differentiate.

Young people who want to serve their country are also targets: the passive-aggressive command at West Point compels the unvaccinated to sacrifice a week’s vacation to quarantine and then to wear masks in the most ridiculous circumstances imaginable — to harass them and make them look like fools. Military leaders do not care whether the experimental vaccines might do more harm than good, especially on a previously COVID-exposed youth. Take the jab and shut up, cadet; Colonel Suckup needs to PowerPoint his 100% compliance success.

Famed baseball pitcher Anthony Fauci claims that he is Science personified, yet anyone can make simple deductions that have eluded the doctor: there is effectively no difference in COVID rates between regions that went full Stalin on COVID rules and those areas that took a more holistic or decentralized approach to the virus.

Great Britain, with its multiple draconian lockdowns, has a COVID case rate of 6.76% of the population, while Sweden, which mostly left schools and businesses open and went soft-touch on mask mandates, has a case rate of 10.7%. But Sweden’s death rate is 20% lower than the U.K.’s, so what was the point of Britain’s lockdown hysteria?

Similarly, some U.S. schools were closed for up to a year, and kids as young as two were required to wear masks in a sickening display of fear-psychosis. Yet in Switzerland, schools reopened permanently about 4–5 weeks after the initial virus panic in the spring of 2020, and children under 12 were never required to wear masks at any time. Switzerland’s COVID case and death rates are both lower than the U.S.’s. On the other hand, in Washington, D.C., where self-righteous residents wear masks even while jogging in the woods, restaurants were already open in March 2021, while in Switzerland, restaurants were closed from December until late May, in the apparent hope of destroying every last small eatery. There’s no science in any of this posturing.

And none of this jumping through hoops made any difference in the progression of the virus: lockdown-crazy Michigan has a higher COVID death rate than libertarian Florida (despite its large elderly population).

Lost in all of this seems to be the simple fact that the COVID virus is not that deadly. True, about 12% of the 4.7-million total U.S. deaths recorded between January 2020 and June 2021 were credited to COVID. About 1.7% of positive cases end in death. But 80% of COVID deaths occurred in the over-65 population, which always has a much higher death rate from infectious diseases, such as pneumonia. If you are under 65 and test positive for COVID, you have a 0.25% chance of death (1/400), which is probably about the same as if you caught a bad flu and suffered complications from it. It’s also logical that we will see periods of below-average death rates in the next year or two, in the same way that there are bad flu years and not-bad flu years.

Self-serving politicians locked down free citizens (and, ironically, released prisoners), destroyed businesses, marred kids’ psyches, and harassed people with mask and testing mandates, all for a coronavirus that in the end was not that novel. And they did it with the connivance of corporate media, which censored and slandered anyone who asked the most basic questions about the virus’ origins and treatments.

In a future sane world, people will view the orchestrated panic of the COVID era with the same bemused condescension we might view the supposed War of the Worlds radio invasion scare of 1938, or the bygone use of leeches for seemingly every ailment.

Yes, grandson, back in 2020, the whole world went batty.

Former Marine Daniel Rabil grew up in Washington, D.C. and lives in Switzerland.

2A: On Wednesday, FAUXTUS falsely stated that the Clinton era assault weapons ban had reduced crime.

A 2004 Department of Justice funded study from the University of Pennsylvania Center of Criminology concluded the ban resulted in “no discernible reduction in the lethality and injuriousness of gun violence.”

He also falsely stated that cities with the highest crime rates, like Chicago, Baltimore and New York, don’t already have strict gun control laws.

They do. In fact, all of the states with the highest crime rates and the strictest gun control laws are deep blue. And within these states, cities controlled by liberal Democrats that have even harsher gun control laws than their states do rank among the highest in the nation for violent crime.

FAUXTUS also sneered at gun owners who object to gun control, suggesting he would use the military to quash rebellion. “If you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.”

Funny thing how, on Jan. 6, a few hundred unarmed protesters were some kind of imminent threat to our very way of life.

EUROPEAN UNION: The European Parliament has officially declared abortion to be a human right and an essential health service. In addition, doctor’s objection to abortion based on personal beliefs about the unborn are classified as denial of medical care.

FIRST NATIONS: Two Catholic churches attended by First Nations peoples in British Columbia were burned to the ground early Monday morning. Police found signs of liquid accelerant at both Sacred Heart Church on Penticton Indian Band Land and St. Gregory’s Church on Osoyoos Band Land, near Oliver.

FLORIDA: On Thursday, part of a 12-story apartment building collapsed in Surfside, Florida, leaving at least one dead and an undetermined number of residents trapped in the rubble and debris.

Dozens of survivors have been rescued and authorities are still working to get more people out. The exact number of people who were in the building at the time of the disaster is unknown, but it is believed that dozens are still unaccounted for.

Tweeters piled on. “I’m proud of and support Carl Nassib for coming out….unless he’s a Trump supporter then that is just problematic.” “I don’t care if he’s gay and proud. That administration was evil and he doesn’t get a pass.”

SCIENTIFIC RACISM: Dr. Samuel Cartwright (1793 – 1863) was a physician best known as the inventor of the ‘mental illness’ of drapetomania, the desire of a slave for freedom. He said that slaves should be kept in a submissive state and treated like children, with “care, kindness, attention, and humanity to prevent and cure them from running away.”

During the American Civil War, Cartwright joined the Confederate States of America and was assigned the responsibility of improving sanitary conditions in the camps about Vicksburg, Mississippi, and Port Hudson, Louisiana. Too bad for the soldiers under his care that he was an outspoken opponent of germ theory.

TRANS: This person despises the nation that pampers and coddles gender-neurotics to the point where they are allowed to beat out real women for the honor of representing said nation at the Olympics. This makes me so angry!

BMXer “Chelsea” Wolfe will be joined in Tokyo by fellow “transgender” athlete “Laurel” Hubbard, a New Zealand male who frequently lost weightlifting competitions when competing with other men. Then, golly gee whiz, who woulda thunk, after declaring himself a female, he qualified for the Summer Olympics.

Hmm … I wondered if “Chelsea” ever competed on the male BMX circuit.

COVID Update

COURAGE: Artur Pawlowski in the video is the Polish-born pastor whose Canadian congregation has been repeatedly harassed for holding church services. Pawlowski himself has been arrested and allegedly chained, tortured, and forced to sleep on a concrete floor in solitary confinement. In Canada. For holding church services.

Pastor Pawlowski is traveling through America on his Courageous Faith tour. On June 15, he spoke to an overflowing crowd in Manhattan. “Good people don’t obey the order of tyrants. If you’re not pushing evil away, you are part of the problem. …

In Canada to this day, prayer is illegal. But you can go to IKEA and abortion clinics and marijuana stores. I could bring my whole church to IKEA and have services there. But if one person comes to my church, I can be arrested. This is not about a virus! It’s about control.

DEMENTIA JOE: Clip above from November 25, 2020 [:26] – CLICK https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1408182902978977802 [:45] to hear him confuse the Tuskegee Airmen with the Tuskegee Syphilis Study and then say “Lateenex” don’t want to get vaccinated, because they’re afraid they’ll be deported. “People have memories. People have long memories.” Except for you, Joe. Yours is shot to hell. Also, you’re a racist.

NATURAL IMMUNITY: We’ve known for ages that people who recover from a disease enjoy natural immunity. Nevertheless, Fauci has been pushing the unscientific idea that everybody should be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Now a new study by scientists at the Cleveland Clinic confirmed that the vaccine confers no additional benefit for those who have already had the novel coronavirus. And given the many concerns that the CDC refuses to acknowledge, it’s downright criminal to insist an immune individual take the vaccine.

I checked the CDC website and found no mention of natural immunity except here: “On January 12, 2021, CDC announced an Order requiring all air passengers arriving to the US from a foreign country to get tested no more than 3 days before their flight departs and to present the negative result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 to the airline before boarding the flight.”

PHILLIPINES: In a televised address, President Duterte told citizens, “You choose. Vaccine, or I will have you jailed.” And in a video, he says, “I’m telling you, those police jail cells are filthy and foul-smelling, police are lazy in cleaning. That is where you’ll be.”

According to the country’s laws, he doesn’t have the right to order arrests. But last year he threatened to jail anybody violating his lockdown and mask rules. By early July 2020, more than 76,000 people had been jailed.

He’s facing an uphill battle with the vaccines though. Vaccine hesitancy has been high among Filipinos since a 2017 mass vax program led to the deaths of several children. Officials estimate that only 2.1 million of the nation’s 110 million have submitted to the coronavirus vaccine.

SEIU: Color me surprised. This mega-union usually bows and kowtows to Democrats. But they have drawn a line in the COVID-19 vaccine sand saying they will fight efforts to force employees to submit to vaccination or lose their jobs.

Whether there is a legal challenge that we can make, or whether it’s just a pure organizational challenge that we can make, we are not going to just give in,” George Gresham of SEIU Local 1199.

WALL STREET JOURNAL: On Tuesday, the WSJ published an op-ed written by two physicians who say politics — not science — is behind the failure of health officials and the media to fully inform the public about the potential risks associated with COVID vaccines.

Joseph A. Ladapo, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine, and Harvey A. Risch, M.D., Ph.D., professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health wrote while “some scientists have raised concerns that the safety risks of Covid-19 vaccines have been underestimated … the politics of vaccination has relegated their concerns to the outskirts of scientific thinking, Stigmatizing such concerns is bad for scientific integrity and could harm patients. …

The implication is that the risks of a COVID-19 vaccine may outweigh the benefits for certain low-risk populations, such as children, young adults and people who have recovered from COVID-19. This is especially true in regions with low levels of community spread, since the likelihood of illness depends on exposure risk.

And while you would never know it from listening to public health officials, not a single published study has demonstrated that patients with a prior infection benefit from COVID-19 vaccination. That this isn’t readily acknowledged by the CDC or Anthony Fauci is an indication of how deeply entangled pandemic politics is in science.”

According to the CDC, “COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.

Outside the hotel, faithful Catholics prayed the Rosary in reparation for the scandalous clergy group.

As I watched the clips of the meeting, I was struck by the scarcity (or possibly total lack) of black shirts with Roman collars on members of the AUSCP. I attended a meeting of priests once; every single one of them wore clerical garb.

WHO: Somebody must’ve been offended, because the clear, straightforward recommendation – “Children should not be vaccinated for the moment.” – has been replaced with this mess:

Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults, so unless they are part of a group at higher risk of severe COVID-19, it is less urgent to vaccinate them than older people, those with chronic health conditions and health workers.

More evidence is needed on the use of the different COVID-19 vaccines in children to be able to make general recommendations on vaccinating children against COVID-19.

WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) has concluded that the Pfizer/BionTech vaccine is suitable for use by people aged 12 years and above. Children aged between 12 and 15 who are at high risk may be offered this vaccine alongside other priority groups for vaccination.

Vaccine trials for children are ongoing and WHO will update its recommendations when the evidence or epidemiological situation warrants a change in policy.

Huh?

COVID-19 Update

A Chinese Communist Party military scientist filed a patent for a COVID-19 vaccine on February 24, 2020, just five weeks after China admitted there was human-to-human transmission of the virus.

Given the difficulty of creating a brand new vaccine, this raises serious questions about when the ChiComs started creating it, whether the virus itself was deliberately engineered as a bioweapon, and if release of the virus was deliberate.

The scientist, Zhou Yusen, had received funding from Fauci’s NIH and had worked alongside the scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. He died under mysterious circumstances in May, just three months after filing the patent.

Despite the fact that Zhou Yusen was an award-winning scientist at the PLA’s Laboratory of Infection and Immunity at the Beijing Institute of Microbiology and Epidemiology, there were no reports about his death. He was mentioned in a Chinese-media report in July and at the end of a December scientific paper. Both times, the word “deceased” appeared in brackets after his name. Maybe the ChiComs offed him to keep him quiet. Or maybe he died of COVID-19 and they covered it up to save face.

An American professor has recovered some archived material from an international database showing that Chinese Communist scientists deleted imperative data about the earliest confirmed patients of COVID-19. He believes they did it to help obscure their role in creating and releasing the pathogen.

A leaked 2009 State Department cable signed CLINTON shows that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned all the embassies in the nations listed below* that the work being done at the Wuhan Institute of Virology could lead to “biological weapons proliferation.”

According to Jack Posobiec, “Since the outbreak of COVID19 and questions surrounding the Wuhan lab, Hillary Clinton has never spoken publicly of these concerns, but has attacked people bringing them up as racist, and blamed them for attacks on Asian-Americans, without evidence.”

*Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, European Union, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
