Australia: 95 percent in hospital for Covid have been vaccinated

 

And Victoria, Australia has been in lockdown for 8 months says Sky news

Australia:

 Health Minister Martin Foley.

Health Minister Foley announced 867 new COVID cases recorded yesterday.  During the statistical outline Foley identifies 375 people as hospitalized, 81 people in intensive care and 61 people on a ventilator.   Then comes the statistic everyone in government and media ignore.  Amid the recorded cases “78% of the hospital cases are fully vaccinated, and 17% are partially vaccinated (1 dose)”….

That means 95% of the COVID patients in Victoria hospitals are vaccinated.

Victoria is reflecting this same issue, perhaps worse.  78% of the hospital patients are fully vaccinated, that’s actually a higher percentage than the population vaccinated as a whole. Meaning vaccinated people are arriving at the hospital in greater percentage than they represent in the population.  The vaccine could be making people suffer more severe outcomes.   Watch it again.  These are his own statements.

356 people out of 375 patients are vaccinated, yet 81 people are still in intensive care with 61 on a ventilator.  

H/T: Conservative Tree House

I wonder if this could have to do anything with Governor Hocul wanting New Yorkers to be Apostles for the vaccine?

The governor’s daughter-in-law is listed on federal lobbying disclosure reports, showing that she and her team actively tried to influence members of Congress and those within President Joe Biden’s administration.

Hochul’s daughter-in-law isn’t the only close family member creating optics problems for the new governor.

Hochul’s husband, William Hochul, is a former federal prosecutor who works as senior vice president and general counsel at gambling and hospitality giant Delaware North. The Daily Beast noted that Hochul’s administration will have authority over key regulators that have ties to the gambling industry, including the New York State Gaming Commission.

Sheer Madness – Health care workers fired, National Guard now doing bus driving and health care

 

We learn that one in five so called “migrants” is sick according to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas here.

The migrants are strewn throughout various military bases here in the U.S. We can assume the medical units of the services are taking care of said migrants. If the military is not stressed enough, we now call on the National Guard to leap into the breech and take care patients because of the deliberate firing of possibly tens of thousands of health care workers.

Capt. Buddy Davis at local hospital in Port-au-Prince

 

Those in the National Guard I would assume have their own day jobs that are medical in nature. The States calling up the National Guard simply move the chess pieces on the board. Who is going to fill the jobs that they leave once they are called up? Add to that, the National Guard are now bus drivers too.

Bus driver shortage has states looking to National Guard to transport kids to school

Ohio is far from the only state dealing with this shortage. Last week, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker activated up to 250 members of the National Guard to drive school buses throughout the state as needed.

New York hospitals fire, suspend staff who refuse COVID vaccine

NEW YORK, Sept 27 (Reuters) – New York hospitals on Monday began firing or suspending healthcare workers for defying a state order to get the COVID-19 vaccine, and resulting staff shortages prompted some hospitals to postpone elective surgeries or curtail services.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told a news conference the city’s hospitals were not yet seeing a major impact from the mandate, adding he worried about other areas of the state where vaccination rates are lower.

Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo suspended elective inpatient surgeries and had stopped accepting intensive-care patients from other hospitals as it prepares to fire hundreds of unvaccinated employees, a spokesman Peter Cutler said.

Cutler said the decision to curtail some operations would inconvenience patients and hurt hospital finances. Elective inpatient surgeries bring in about $1 million per week, he said.

Sheer madness. The Governor of New York and Tucker Carlson’s take. Health care workers were willing to sacrifice all when no one understood anything about the Covid virus. This is the thanks.

America’s ailing society

by Mustang

We live in a vast country.  In 2019, our population was 328.2 million people.  According to Johns-Hopkins Medical Center and the National Institute of Mental Health Disorders, one-quarter of our population suffers from clinical and manic depression, schizophrenia, and obsessive-compulsive disorders.

Many of these people suffer from more than one mental disorder at any given time, such as depressive illness concurrent with substance abuse and anxiety disorders.  Ten percent of our population suffers from depression, bipolar disorder, or dysthymia in any given year.  Women are nearly twice as likely to suffer from major depression as men, but men and women are equally likely to develop bipolar disorder.

The average age of the onset of mental disorders is the mid-20s.  Most people who commit suicide have a diagnosable mental illness, such as clinical depression and substance abuse.  In this group, men are four times as likely to commit suicide than women.  Women, however, attempt suicide more than men.  Whatever the outcome, scientists say that mental health issues begin to manifest themselves in both men and women during adolescence.

Mental health books

Emphasis: one-quarter of our population of 328.2 million.  Do the math.  It must be one of America’s dirty little secrets because we hardly ever hear about this.  If government policy has anything to do with the quality of life in the United States, then someone should be asking our elected officials very pointed questions.  Not that we would ever get any answers, of course.

Politicians are never held accountable for the things they “do to us.”  No government official went to jail for testing nuclear weapons in New Mexico, which caused massive spikes in radiation cancers all across the United States.  No one went to prison for performing human experiments on black men, injecting them with socially transferrable viruses. No one is likely to go to jail to fund COVID-19 viruses in China.

Speaking of government policy, Boston University tells us that since 11 September 2001, 7,057 active duty service men and women lost their lives in the Middle Eastern wars.  Since then, 30,177 active duty and veteran service men and women have taken their own lives.

There may have been undiagnosed mental illnesses within this exceedingly large group of people, but much of it had to do with extended exposure to combat, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) from IED explosions, and the complete indifference of the civilian public to the reality of post-traumatic (war-related) stress.

The average suicide rate for post 9/11 veterans between 18-34 is 32.3 per 100,000 service men and women.  In 2018, that number increased to 45.9%.  In other words, nearly three times the suicide rate of the general population.

Suicide is one of the costs of war that no one wants to address or acknowledge.  And, or so it appears, suicide is a cost of war no one in the government thinks is worthy of acting on.  We could start, I suppose, by demanding that the government refrain from involving us in 20-year-long conflicts that the US government has no intention of winning.

But no … that’s too hard.  Besides, all of us know that government doesn’t care what we (the people) think. This is because we (the people) never hold politicians accountable for the horrific circumstances they’ve created for our society.

The preceding opinion probably makes me a racist, but if either study is valid, then all I can say is that American society is very, very sick.

Saving our Children

 

by Mustang

Neuroscientists once believed that a child was born with a fully formed brain.  Psychologists weren’t so sure about that.  If a child is born with a fully functional brain, then why do almost all adolescents make the dumbest-ever judgment calls?  You name it, and kids from 13-20 are capable of doing it, much of it dangerously harmful to themselves.

 

Today, neuroscientists and psychologists agree that the human brain does not fully mature until around the age of 24-25.  These scientists tell us that the last portion of the brain to mature is the prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for controlling judgment.  I’m not sure how one “proves” this theory, but it has become the most agreed-upon/widely accepted theory of neuro-development within the medical/psychological community.

 

Given this “wide acceptance” of brain maturity theory, why do educators, school counselors, and organizations such as Planned Parenthood and Kaiser Hospitals providing gender-pediatric clinics to adolescents?  If the brain-development view is accurate, how is it possible for medical practitioners to allow “gender-affirming” therapies on 13-year old children — without parental consent?  How did western society arrive at a place where a 15-year old female can obtain elective double mastectomy without her parent’s knowledge?  Moreover, how is this different from the practice of female genital mutilation routinely practiced in Islamist culture?

 

Gender Neutral Restroom Sign - for Community Clinician Roundtable - Care of Transgender Patients 50236

 

Western society deems it necessary to pass laws protecting children/adolescents from the effects of alcohol, drugs, and cigarettes, or drive automobiles, or operate dangerous vocational equipment, and if we strive to keep teenage girls from becoming impregnated.  Yet, those same societies turn a blind eye to these same kids obtaining gender-affirming therapies.  How does this make any sense?  How does this demonstrate genuine concern for the health and welfare of children and adolescents?

 

Experts associated with the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) and the American Psychiatric Association (APA) confirm the reality of gender dysphoria. This medical/psychiatric diagnosis describes a sense of uneasiness one may have with their biological sexual identity.  Scientists have studied this condition for well over a hundred years.  We know that it mainly affects male children/adolescents and that, in total, only around 0.01 percent of the general population (approximately 34,000) people in the United States.  We also know that most children who experience gender dysphoria outgrow it naturally — without any help from gender-affirming medical professionals or activists.

 

Well, if the preceding statistics are accurate, why is there a sudden (and dramatic) increase in sexual reassignment therapies and surgeries among children (under 12 years old) and adolescents (under 18 years of age)?  What justifies this assault on “gender confused” innocents if they are likely to outgrow gender dysphoria — again if they are left alone to outgrow it?

 

Care standards for patients diagnosed with gender dysphoria, as explained by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, must begin with someone who demonstrates a persistent, well-documented gender abnormality.  The patient must have the mental capacity to make fully informed decisions, and they must give their consent to proceed with fully explained/fully understood treatments. If a patient is not legally entitled to decide, then medical professionals must apply specifically designed standards of care for children and adolescents.  What are these “standards of care?”  An interested reader can evaluate them at the WPATH website, standards of care, beginning on Page 10 for children and adolescents.

 

Child development psychologists explain that it is normal for children as young as two years to display elements of gender dysphoria (male children preferring female-oriented toys or dressing up like “mommy”), but, while less than 10% of these children carry such behaviors into adolescence [Note 1], as many as half of the male children will eventually become homosexual adults.  Among adolescents, however, the persistence of gender dysphoria into adulthood is higher.  In one study of 70 adolescents diagnosed with gender dysphoria, all of them proceeded with sexual reassignment treatments, which begins with chemically induced puberty blockers and hormone therapies.

 

Here’s the problem: It is one thing for parents to address these psychological problems with their children and medical/psychiatric personnel (which, by the way, involves a diverse range and long-term application of medical expertise [Note 2]), and another issue entirely when minors as young as 13 pursue gender reassignment therapies without parental involvement or consent — particularly, once again, when medical professionals know that the judgmental portion of the brain is not fully formed until age 24-25.

 

Psychiatrists have known about gender dysphoria for 100 years.  In the past, however, psychiatrists strongly suggested that parents allow their affected children to outgrow it naturally.  When children were left alone to progress beyond the problem naturally, which is to say, not badgered by others about “finding themselves,” most (not all) outgrew gender dysphoria.  Of those who did not outgrow it, most become homosexual or transexual men who prefer to present themselves as women.

 

Today, however, we find out children beleaguered about their apparent gender dysphoria, even to the extent of labeling them as “trans-kids.”  Classroom teachers are responsible for much of this badgering, many of which actively encourage these children to introduce themselves as Rachael rather than Richard.  The matter is made worse by taking these children to healthcare practitioners who regard themselves as “affirmative caregivers” — a term we apply to healthcare professionals who view themselves as responsible for affirming diagnoses of gender dysphoria and for helping them “transition” to the opposite sex, whether or not the child/adolescent previously gave it much thought.

 

What makes this a particularly critical junction in “solving the problem” is that once chemically induced puberty-blocking begins, there is almost no going back.  What do therapists use on these children?  They use a drug originally intended for use in the chemical castration of sex offenders.  It’s called Lupron.  The Food and Drug Administration has never approved the use of Lupron as a puberty blocker.  The question remains: Why would any responsible parent or doctor want to stop a child’s puberty, especially if a typical child will likely outgrow gender dysphoria if left alone?  The question is particularly pertinent because scientists cannot predict whether a child will outgrow their gender dysphoria.

 

Claims made by doctors and gender activists that sexual reassignment therapy for children is “safe” and “reversible” are simply not valid. However, that aside, we should wonder why the number of adolescent females claiming gender dysphoria suddenly increased over time in the past ten years.  Since 2012, there has been a 4,400% increase in teenage girls seeking treatment in the United Kingdom and the United States.  Is it a matter of social contagion?

 

Consider the additional (psychoses) associated with the sudden onset of anorexia and bulimia.  It leads one to think that teenage females in both the US and UK have entered the worst mental health crisis in human history, collectively exhibiting the highest anxiety, self-mutilation, and clinical depression rates.  They are the same young girls who hate their bodies.  They are the same young girls most influenced by Facebook and Twitter.  To circle back briefly, they are young people with immature brains who are led to believe that the solution to their problem is sexual reassignment therapy and surgery.

 

Not one clinical or academic study supports the notion that puberty blockers reduce suicidal tendencies or attempts or improves mental health. The issue of adolescent psychosis is relevant, given our understanding of brain maturity, because, sadly, suicide rates among those who have undergone sexual reassignment surgery are significantly higher among teenagers than the general population.  According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, more than half of male teens who underwent sexual reassignment therapy/surgery attempted suicide; among female adolescents, 30%.  Among non-binary youth (children who see themselves as a third gender), the attempted suicide rate is 42%.  Similar studies conducted at UCLA (Williams Institute) found that 98% of transgender adults thought about suicide, and 51% actually attempted suicide.

 

If mental instability among gender dysphoria patients doesn’t alarm you, maybe this will: in every case where a child’s healthy puberty is arrested, which places that child out of step with their peers, that child proceeds to cross-sex hormones.  When healthcare professionals administer puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones to a female child, she becomes infertile.  She may develop a permanent sexual dysfunction because her sex organs never reach maturity.

 

One final question: If certain professionals (identified above) knowingly contribute to the early death, mental anguish, physical pain, and suffering of children/adolescents — the sort of thing that will last throughout the balance of their lives — why are they not charged with felony child abuse?  Do we, or do we not want to save our children?

 

Notes:

 

[1] Stevens, M. and Susan Beveridge.  The ALSPAC Study (2002) involving 283 single-mother homes found no differences in parent-reported gender-role behavior between father-present and father-absent families for either male or female children.

 

[2] Typical sexual reassignment challenges involve numerous ongoing treatments, including general medicine, epidemiology, mental health, lifelong hormone therapy, reproductive medicine, voice and communications therapy, reproductive surgery, plastic surgery, post-operative care and on-going hormonal treatments, and lifelong preventive and primary care.

Bizarre – Congressional Doctor orders House not Senate to wear masks

 

In a bizarre twist of the infamous wearing “mask or no mask” put down one Dr. Brian Monahan as the latest actor in this congressional play. He hails from the Office of the Attending Physician. We are familiar no doubt with the Doctor who looks after the President, but this fine fellow takes care of the congressional staff.

 

Brian Monahan.JPG

Dr. Brian Monahan

The fellow who apparently followed Nancy Pelosi’s direction and ordered the House members to wear masks. The Senate? Not so much. What was this decision based on? Apparently it included a nonsensical study done in India. Apparently the CDC decided to use it as well. So it appears at least one of the studies the CDC used to justify their guidance was rejected by a peer review and was based on a vaccine not even used in the United States. Brilliant stuff.

But first:

Try and follow this nonsense.

The Office of the Attending Physician issued late night guidance for each chamber Tuesday, but with a mandate for the House and a softer recommendation in the Senate, confusion still reigns. Partisan fights over masks erupted in the House earlier this year and could make a comeback if a fresh mask mandate is imposed.

“For all House Office Buildings, the Hall of the House, and House Committee Meetings, wearing of a well-fitted, medical grade, filtration face mask is required when an individual is in an interior space and other individuals are present. To be clear, for meetings in an enclosed US House of Representatives controlled space, masks are REQUIRED,” reads the memo from the Office of the Attending Physician.

The Senate, with many fewer (and older) lawmakers who took Covid precautions more seriously from the outset, is left to self-regulate by the Capitol’s top doc.

Dr. Brian Monahan recommends that in the Senate, “all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space and other individuals are present.”

Ed: (Why a KN95 and not a N95 mask?)

What’s The Difference Between N95 and KN95 Masks …

In short, N95 masks are the US standards for respirator masks; KN95 masks are the Chinese standards for masks. Let’s buy our masks from China. They haven’t done enough damage yet.)

But I digress.

It is the same guidance as for the House, but recommended, not required.

“We’re going to speak without the masks, but wear the masks,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said, explaining his mask approach at a Tuesday press conference. “Right now, you have to do what you think is best. For myself, I’m going to put on a mask.”

And now this:..

Study Cited By CDC To Justify New Mask Guidance Rejected By Peer Review, Based On Vaccine Not Used In US

(Via Daily Caller) – At least one of the studies that was cited by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to justify changing their guidance on masks was based on a vaccine that is not authorized for use in America and was rejected by a peer review.

The study in question from researchers in India claims to show that a COVID-19 Delta variant infection generates a higher viral load in comparison to other variants.

Despite no mention in the study of viral loads from the variant against unvaccinated individuals, the CDC cited it in yesterday’s updated brief as evidence that the Delta variant is transmissible from a vaccinated individual with a breakthrough infection.

“Studies from India with vaccines not authorized for use in the United States have noted relatively high viral loads and larger cluster sizes associated with infections with Delta, regardless of vaccination status,” the CDC said.

“These early data suggest that breakthrough Delta infections are transmissible,” the CDC’s brief goes on to say, even though the India study was conducted with a non-approved U.S. vaccine.

The report from the CDC also says that “unpublished” and “additional data collection” studies are pending that will help to “understand the level and duration of transmissibility from Delta vaccine breakthrough infections in the United States and other settings.”

Dr. Rachael Levine now Ass’t Sec of Health, COVID Nursing Home deaths, & DOJ – the intersect

While New York has been in the news regarding the DOJ dropping the investigation into Nursing Homes Covid deaths, little time has been given to the other democrat controlled states who also had the bright idea of putting COVID positive patients there as well. New York and Michigan got the good news last week that they were off the DOJ hook, and now we hear that Pennsylvania too got the news. Across the country, tens of thousands of COVID-19 patients were accepted by nursing homes, more than 250,000 in the 12 months through March 1, according to federal data.

In Pennsylvania, about 65% of coronavirus deaths were nursing-home residents, and in counties in the hardest hit southeastern part of the state, long-term care residents account for as much as 80% of county deaths. New Jersey had 3,200 residents of long-term care homes die due to complications from the virus, about 40% of the statewide total. About 58% of the deaths in Delaware lived in nursing homes, and 46% of the fatalities in Maryland were at nursing homes, prompting Gov. Larry Hogan to order residents and staff members at nursing homes be tested for coronavirus.

I have an idea of one good reason why the investigation was dropped.

Let’s connect a few dots:

Enter Dr. Rachael Levine, former Pennsylvania Secretary of Health. She/he is particularly loathsome. Not only did she send sick patients into nursing homes, just as the news broke in March, she moved her mother out of one and into a hotel. Think that was bad? She got rewarded by joining Biden’s administration. Now she could protect herself and her fellow Democrat States by keeping an eye on the investigation if there were to be one. Better yet, protect herself and others in her position. Her job now?Joe Biden’s assistant secretary of health.

 

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The Justice Department told Gov. Tom Wolf’s office on Thursday that it has decided not to open an investigation into whether Pennsylvania violated federal law by ordering nursing homes to accept residents who had been treated for COVID-19 in a hospital.

Let’s take a look at how absurd this whole thing is.

Pennsylvania Health Secretary Moves Mother to Hotel – Tom Wolf, Rachel Levine Hypocrites?

Pennsylvania made nursing homes accept COVID-19 patients, but health secretary’s mom was moved to hotel. Even as coronavirus patients were being funneled into state nursing homes, the state’s Secretary of Health, Rachel Levine, removed her mother from one of those facilities, lodging her instead in a hotel. She claims it was “personal care” – either way, it was “congregate living” no matter what she pleads.

Levine will become the first openly transgender federal official if confirmed by the Senate.

“Dr. Rachel Levine will bring the steady leadership and essential expertise we need to get people through this pandemic — no matter their zip code, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability — and meet the public health needs of our country in this critical moment and beyond,” Biden said in a statement on her nomination. “She is a historic and deeply qualified choice to help lead our administration’s health efforts.”

PA transgendered Sec of Health focusing on LGBT, Trannny on COVID data collection

The news comes as Levine, the nation’s first openly transgender health secretary, comes under fire over the department’s handling of nursing homes — particularly a March guidance that essentially instructed senior living facilities to accept patients who were diagnosed with the coronavirus.

Unhinged PA Gov Wolf and Sec of Health Levine Devastate Nursing Homes

It gets even better this week. Not content that Nursing homes and hospitals are up to their eyeballs taking care of sick patients, she will have them go through all of the medical records and try and figure out if they are LGBTQ … add how many additional letters you need. Go figure. Priorities my dear… will some one tell her/him? For what purpose Dr. Levine? How happy should the LGBT community be that she is having people tracing their contacts? Going through their medical records?

Gov. Tom Wolf’s (D) office this week announced that the state’s health department, under transgender Health Secretary Rachel Levine, is focusing on gender identity and sexual orientation or expression in the state’s collection of coronavirus data.

American Spectator:

May 29, 2020

Note what is alleged: On March 29, Pennsylvania joined New York and other northeastern states in “ordering nursing homes to admit medically stable residents infected with the coronavirus,” despite warnings from groups like the American Health Care Association that such “health directives” could “unnecessarily cost more lives.”

These intrepid government officials should have heeded something known as common sense. Who but a fool would move infected COVID-19 patients into nursing homes? What was option two, moving them into Walmarts?

 

The article continued, “The death toll is devastating, according to interviews with nursing-home officials, patients’ families, health-care advocates, government officials and from an examination of state records … across the Northeast.” And yet, among the plagued northeast, the infection rate in nursing homes is uniquely bad in Pennsylvania.

…..

That possibility is getting major attention across the state. A devastating investigative piece was published in the Bucks County Courier Times (jointly done with reporters from USA Today), a county with a huge number of COVID-19 cases (the vast majority of Pennsylvania’s cases are in eastern counties close to New York and New Jersey). Titled, “States ordered nursing homes to take COVID-19 residents — Thousands Died,” it documents the disproportionate deaths in Pennsylvania nursing homes

Fauci-Funded EcoHealth Rejects giving Wuhan Documents To Congress

Fauci let Trump get absolutely kicked while the little rat knew everything about how this virus was funded and worked on. When, Oh, When, will the EcoHealth Alliance Clowns and that utter Fraud, Fauci, end up on trial for Crimes Against Humanity?

Daszak is on record for admitting they developed “several killer viruses “

Why is he and his senior associates team not under arrest right now ? 

peter_daszak.jpg

President, Ecohealth Alliance. Disease Ecologist

Why is Fauci anywhere near this file ? 

Quote: 

The first $666,442 installment of EcoHealth’s $3.7 million NIH grant was paid in June 2014, with similar annual payments through May 2019 under the “Understanding The Risk Of Bat Coronavirus Emergence” 

The date: Let this rest on Fauci.

Zero Hedge:

Four months before the Obama administration suspended federal funding for gain-of-function research on US soil, the process by which virologists manipulate viruses to be more transmissible to humans, a subagency of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) – headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci – effectively shifted this research to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) via a grant to nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance, headed by Peter Daszak.

The WIV “had openly participated in gain-of-function research in partnership with U.S. universities and institutions” for years under the leadership of Dr. Shi ‘Batwoman’ Zhengli, according to the Washington Post‘s Josh Rogin.

Now, Daszak is refusing to comply with a months-old document request from House Republicans related to his work at the Wuhan lab, according to Just The News.

As government investigators and journalists dig to uncover the full scope of Daszak’s links to the WIV, Daszak is continuing to spurn a congressional request for that information

In April, Republicans on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce sent Daszak a letter directing him to submit, among many other documents, “all letters, emails, and other communications between [EcoHealth] and [the WIV] related to terms of agreements, bat coronaviruses, genome or genetic sequencing, SARS-CoV-2, and/or laboratory safety practices” pursuant to key NIH research funding through EcoHealth to the Wuhan lab as a grant sub-recipient.

Yet Daszak himself has not cooperated with the request. An aide with the Energy and Commerce Committee confirmed to Just the News this week that the committee has “received no response still from EcoHealth Alliance and Peter Daszak to the April 16th letter from Leaders Rodgers, Guthrie, and Griffith.” -JTN

………

Meanwhile, Congressional Democrats aren’t actually interested in getting to the bottom of things – as they themselves hold subpoena power in both chambers. The ultimate authority, as JTN notes, rests with that party – specifically Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone – who notably boosted funding to Fauci’s NIH in 2015 to the tune of $2 billion per year through 2020. 

A comment left at Zero Hedge and worth consideration:

“Why a subpoena hasn’t been issued in more than two months is unclear, but we could venture a guess”

Because he’s protected, protected by the military and the CIA.

EcoHealth Alliance is a CIA partner, and it received $39 million funding from the American military besides the funding it gets from Fauci`s NIH and indirectly Gates`s Welcome Foundation.

Fauci skewered by Bartiromo in interview with Dr. Kory over use of Ivermectin and censorship

Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin are cheap drugs who have long lost their patent. They have been around for decades with no known major side effects. Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” takes on the facts once again as to why Anthony Fauci instead of supporting the use of these drugs instead wanted to give billions of dollars for new treatments. It is a scathing rebuke of the the media which has censored the positive reports on the use of these drugs and especially that Dr. Kory’s testimony before congress was banned on Youtube.

It was huge because it discouraged / condemned treating with therapeutic drugs, which would have saved lives. And most of the medical profession failed us miserably by not treating the symptoms.

If you enjoy a good take down, this clip is for you.

Fauci should be in jail. It is suggested that tens of thousands of lives could have been saved with the timely use of these drugs. Especially Ivermectin. Setting aside the argument as to where Covid started, it was well known that these drugs were helpful. Yet WHO, the FDA, the CDC did all they could to stop the use of these drugs.

July 29, 2020:

BBC:

US President Donald Trump has again defended the use of hydroxychloroquine to ward off coronavirus, contradicting his own public health officials.

He said the malaria medication was only rejected as a Covid-19 treatment because he had recommended its use.

His remarks come after Twitter banned his eldest son for posting a clip promoting hydroxychloroquine.

There is no evidence the drug can fight the virus, and regulators warn it may cause heart problems.

On Wednesday Dr Anthony Fauci, a leading member of the White House coronavirus task force, told the BBC that hydroxychloroquine was not effective against the virus.

“We know that every single good study – and by good study I mean randomised control study in which the data are firm and believable – has shown that hydroxychloroquine is not effective in the treatment of Covid-19,” he said.

The FDA also revoked its emergency-use authorisation for the drug to treat Covid-19. The World Health Organization (WHO) says “there is currently no proof” that it is effective as a treatment or prevents Covid-19.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., and Dr. Pierre Kory, Chief Medical Officer of the FLCCC Alliance, weigh in on ‘Sunday Morning Futures and on the impact of censorship in fight against COVID

We shall see how long this stays up.

Fauci talked about scientists evolving in their opinions. Sure, especially when they are caught with self interest ruling their decisions

Fauci doubles down on claim that attacking him is an attack on science

Axios, citing New York Times writer Kara Swisher’s podcast, “Sway,” quoted Fauci defending his record on COVID-19.

“It is essential as a scientist that you evolve your opinion and your recommendations based on the data as it evolves…and that’s the reason why I say people who then criticize me about that are actually criticizing science,” he said.

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in a recent interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd that the recent criticism he faced is “quite frankly” attacks on science.”

“Because all of the things I have spoken about consistently, from the very beginning have been fundamentally based on science,” he said. “Sometimes those things were inconvenient truths for people and there was pushback against me, so if you are trying to, you know, get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really attacking not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you’re attacking science, and anybody that looks at what is going on clearly sees that.”

Patron Saint of Wuhan Anthony Fauci takes a tumble

Let’s start out with the smoking gun email that starts with the “how  to” with the catchy title “Coronavirus bioweapon production method.” The post will end with MSNBC snagging Fauci for his first interview since the SHTF with the release of his treasure trove. If you thought the media was going to have a curiosity about Fauci think no more. No not like the days of the chattering hyenas who posed as press reporters lying in wait to attack all things Trump. Nope. No questions yesterday at the presser. You almost would think it never happened.

You would have thought this email would have been redacted since so many of Fauci’s emails were but Biden wanted the recipe out there for China anyway now didn’t he? Better yet note it was sent by IPhone.

Why stop there when you can read them all right here.

‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ host reacts to Dr. Fauci’s emails exposed. Tucker nails it and worth the ride.

Here is the Nicolle Wallace full interview with Fauci yesterday. Yes, nothing to see, keep moving along folks. This is the how they set it up:

Dr. Anthony Fauci urges all Americans to get their Covid-19 vaccine to stop the spread of potential variants and to allow the country to fully reopen. He also reacts to the publication of his emails during the early months of the coronavirus crisis.

Nope he says, we are not out of the woods. Keep strapping that mask on.

Biden’s Address – Beware the health danger of HARPA – modeled after DARPA

Biden in his address to the Nation, talked about Health Care Research…DARPA… and why we should be concerned.

Informed consent for experiments? Not always what you have been lead to believe. They hawk this proposed agency as:

Federal investment is the fastest, most effective way to de-risk the marketplace. HARPA will disrupt the health technology sector to drive meaningful innovation that will save millions of lives and billions of dollars.

HARPA is modeled after the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA),

…. As part of a proposed $9 billion increase to the National Institutes of Health, the Biden administration has earmarked $6.5 billion to create the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Health.

Under the DARPA model, research projects would not be vetted by peer reviewers, but instead, funding decisions would be made by program managers. And instead of multiyear grants, the agency would disburse awards as milestone-driven payments; program managers could also cancel projects that they decide aren’t panning out.

Before we get to the gist of the dangers of this agency creation and its program managers and for those who have concern about the COVID vaccines let me give a refresher on “Informed Consent” and the Cures Act.

Jan 31, 2020 — The 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act), signed into law on December 13, 2016, is designed to help accelerate medical product development and bring new innovations and advances to patients who need them faster and more efficiently. (Link) 21st Century Cures Act

The Cures Act was passed in the tail end of 2016 under Obama. Today I focus on Section 3023, 3024 regarding Informed Consent and why you should care. No longer is the Gold Standard of “Informed Consent” required if there are “no more of minimal risks to participants.” And who decides this? A previous post:

The Cures Act – No longer is ‘Informed Consent’ required for some medical experiments

I am not sure I for one want the Biden administration in charge of:

Human research subject protections

The 21st Century Cures Act calls on the Secretary of Health and Human Services to harmonize differences between the HHS Human Subject Regulations and FDA Human Subject Regulations. In so doing, the Secretary may change rules applying to vulnerable populations in order “to reduce regulatory duplication and unnecessary delays” and “modernize such provisions in the context of multisite and cooperative research projects.” – Wikipedia,

Be sure and take the time to watch the video at the end of the post for the finer details.

The Cures Act introduces the possibility of waiving or altering informed consent for some FDA-governed research. This decision could mark a major step in the required harmonization of regulations; the rules around waivers of informed consent are some of the significant differences between FDA and Common Rule requirements.

The law sets two requirements for waiving or altering informed consent:

  1. The research must pose no more than minimal risk to participants; and
  2. Other measures to protect study volunteers must be in place.

The bill does not specify who will confirm decisions about minimal risk or appropriate safeguards, but the requirements seem consistent with determinations that IRBs already make.

From Science Blogs:

Title:The 21st Century Cures Act passes, potentially turning the FDA into a puppet of the pharmaceutical industry. (Well worth the full  read.)

Worse, the bill undermines informed consent, as discussed before. The provision is still there that would add another category of research for which it is acceptable to forego informed consent. Normally, it is only acceptable to skip informed consent when it is not feasible or it is contrary to the best interests of the subject.

Add to that now that it would be acceptable to forego informed consent when “the proposed clinical testing poses no more than minimal risk to the human subject and includes appropriate safeguards to protect the rights, safety, and welfare of the human subject.”

As Merrill Goozner put it and agreed, even if the risk is minimal, why would the authors of this legislation waive a central tenet of international agreements designed to protect the rights of human subjects in clinical trials? I didn’t understand either (and still don’t), particularly since the act doesn’t define “minimal risk” or specify who determines whether a study is minimal risk

Worth a good look. Our lives may depend on it. An excellent review of the bill and the ramifications.

Now that we know where we are, let’s see where we have been:

Let’s take a look how the so called research projects went under Obama since we have the same cast of characters roaming around the White House. This research was conducted by Lisa Jackson, EPA administrator.

A federal judge decided to shut down the lawsuit rather than the government’s human experimentation program.

To Judge Trenga, however, the important thing apparently was to nitpick to death the effort to stop the experiments with a narrow reading of the federal rules of civil procedure.

Judge Trenga determined that the EPA’s decision to endanger the lives of its study subjects, including inducing them to sign a fraudulent consent form, did not constitute a “final agency action” under the Administrative Procedures Act. Judge Trenga also determined, as the American Tradition Institute was not being harmed by the experiments, it didn’t have standing to pursue the case. Now the story:

The suit accuses the EPA of paying as many as 41 participants $12 an hour to breathe in concentrated diesel exhaust, for as long a two hours at a time. The exhaust was directly piped in from a truck parked outside the Chapel Hill facility. According to the lawsuit, the fine particulate matter, called “PM2.5,” was piped in at levels 21 times greater than what the EPA calls its “permissible limit.”

Milloy added some historic perspective to the mix. “In the context of rules established after scientific horrors of World War II and the Tuskegee syphilis experiments, the notion that EPA would pipe high levels of PM2.5 and diesel exhaust into the lungs of unhealthy people to see what would happen is simply appalling,” he said in a press release announcing the lawsuit.

“Unhealthy” is an accurate assessment. The 41 subjects who took part in the experiment included people who were elderly or suffering from asthma, hypertension or metabolic syndrome. One of them, an obese 58-year-old woman with a history of health problems and family history of heart disease, experienced an irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) and had to be hospitalized as a result. Another subject developed an elevated heart rate.

Then again, the study subjects really weren’t “asked” to risk their lives, since the EPA researchers failed — and, in fact, refused — to warn them that PM2.5 could kill them. At the very least, exposing study subjects to a dangerous and deadly toxin without their consent is also known as “assault and battery.”

Given that the EPA long ago determined that any exposure to PM2.5 could cause death (as well as a host of other serious health consequences) within hours or days of inhalation, the experiments are fundamentally illegal. Federal regulations and the Nuremberg Code strictly prohibit scientists from treating human subjects like expendable guinea pigs. In the experiment in question, the study subjects were asked to risk their very lives for $12 per hour.

The American Tradition Institute sued the EPA in October to stop an ongoing experiment in which the agency was exposing elderly study subjects (up to 75 years of age) to concentrated levels of a deadly (according to EPA) air pollutant known as PM2.5 (soot or dust much smaller than the width of a human hair).

The lawsuit claimed the experiments were illegal in that they blatantly violated virtually every major standard developed since World War II for the protection of human study subjects used in scientific experiments.
The EPA engaged in disturbing experimentation that deliberately exposed human beings to airborne particulate matter the agency itself considers lethal. The experiments were conducted at EPA’s Human Studies Facility at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. “That EPA administrator Lisa Jackson permitted this heinous experimentation to occur under her watch shocks the conscience,” said Milloy.

Then there was this:

Obama orders Behavioral experiments on U.S. Citizens

President Obama announced a new executive order on Tuesday which authorizes federal agencies to conduct behavioral experiments on U.S. citizens in order to advance government initiatives.

“A growing body of evidence demonstrates that behavioral science insights — research findings from fields such as behavioral economics and psychology about how people make decisions and act on them — can be used to design government policies to better serve the American people,” reads the executive order, released on Tuesday.

The initiative draws on research from University of Chicago economist Richard Thaler and Harvard law school professor Cass Sunstein, who was also dubbed Obama’s regulatory czar. The two behavioral scientists argued in their 2008 book “Nudge” that government policies can be designed in a way that “nudges” citizens towards certain behaviors and choices.

The desired choices almost always advance the goals of the federal government, though they are often couched as ways to cut overall program spending.
