Not so long ago, at least it seems, most folk had a lot more in common than what they differed on.
It transcended race, creed, color, age, sex, nation of origin, status in society, and for the most part even political parties. Most everyone wanted what was genuinely best for America. We were all- mostly- true Patriots. There were different means and methods to achieve this goal, but we all truly wanted what was best for America. We loved our Constitution, Bill of Rights, Flag, Declaration of Independence, and our shared, unique history and heritage that made US Americans.
Yes, there have long been those in positions of power and influence that have waged a tug of war for the heart and soul of America, but still the most of us common folk simply loved America, her history and heritage, warts and all.
America has had it’s share of major problems. The problem was that there has long been a group who has a more tyrannical, “top-down”, ruling/elite class view of America, and life in general. This group, due to their affinity to view themselves as “above it all” have gathered themselves into a political party, this political party is guilty of:
defending slavery for over 100 years,
seceding from The Union to KEEP slaves and slavery,
fighting a WAR to KEEP slaves and slavery,
after losing the war this Political Party formed the Ku Klux Klan as marauders to harass freed slaves and their Liberators,
instituted poll taxes, Jim Crow Laws, separate-but-equal laws, segregation laws, and voted AGAINST EVERY Civil Rights law,
instituted welfare, WIC, Food Stamps, and other entitlements NOT to “help” the down and out, BUT RATHER to bribe and buy votes and obedience, and then use threaten to take away these entitlements to get the poor and needy to do/behave as they, the Elite, wanted them to.
and support/promote abortion in predominantly minority neighborhoods.
Sadly, since 1952 with “Moderate” Eisenhower (his VP was NIXON!) the G.O.P. has slowly, steadily moved to The Left to join their oppressive, tyrannical, Liberal opponent, The Democrat Party.
With Left leaning “Republicans” like Nixon, Ford, Bush Sr., Bush Jr., John McCain, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins…and now the Hard Left, NY Liberal, Putin puppet Trump the Republican Party is hardly distinguishable from The Democrat Party.
My long held observation and proclamation has been, and still is, that America is PAST The Point of NO Return. The ONLY hope now is for all to repent and make themselves ready for the return of The Lord Jesus Christ to catch HIS Bride/Church away. Long gone are the days when a Reagan or a Coolidge could step up and correct things.
I was raised by godly, church going, Biblical-Christian parents. I knew from childhood that America had warts, faults, severe wrongs. I also was raised that with God we could turn America back to The Right Path whenever she strayed…
BUT as I study God’s Word, particularly Biblical Prophecy, and then study current, recent events…I see that we are in the very LAST moments of time before the return of The Lord Jesus Christ to catch HIS Bride/Church out of here… and then Seven Years of Great Tribulation, The Wrath of God, and The Rise and (temporary) Rule of THE Antichrist…will ensue.
All the myriad of things happening ALL AT ONCE IN A “FLURRY OF FURY” are signs that things are winding down, and a distraction so those NOT looking to and for Jesus are too distracted to even think to look to Jesus as THE Answer. Be ready…for in an hour you think not so shall the coming of The Son of Man (Jesus) be.
Ever since that malignant, Marxist, Traitor descended his golden escalator and announced his run for President the assault on America’s Liberties, Rights, Heritage, and Constitution accelerated from Daily attacks to moment-by-moment, tweet-by-tweet attacks culminating in Trump’s failed January 6th, 2021 Insurrection. I will for certain infuriate the gaggle remnant of Trump Cult’45 hold outs by saying the following:
TRUMP LOST. GET OVER IT.
Wish it was THAT simple. But…it’s not. Witness the following-
The top prosecutor who led the investigation into the now-defunct Trump University explained why he thinks Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg held a larger position at the company than his business card title revealed.
Former New York Assistant Attorney General Tristan Snell was interviewed by MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber on “The Beat.”
“There are experts here who say money man only scratches the surface, he was at times basically the acting CEO,” Melber noted. “What, if anything, can you tell us about that based on your knowledge and is that good or bad for him as he faces this heat?”
“Well, first off, you can find out a lot about an organization, about a company, about a target without actually having them cooperate with you. So we were able to get a lot of information on how the Trump Organization worked and Weisselberg’s role in it despite the fact that we did not have Weisselberg’s cooperation,” Snell explained. “We never even felt like we needed to bring him in as a witness because we had already had enough knowledge of everything that we didn’t really need Weisselberg, but we were still able to find the Trump Organization liable and a lot of why the judge in the Trump University case decided that Trump Organization was liable was because of Weisselberg’s very heavy-handed day-to-day control of the organization.”
“Very much he was the acting CEO. II would also say that he was basically the COOO, the Chief Operating Officer of the Trump Organization, a role which has never really been filled, at least not that I know of in the past 20 years,” he said, although Matthew Calameri has taken on the position since the end of the Trump University case.
NBC News on Monday revealed new information about the January 6th insurrection and what the Federal Bureau of Investigation knew about the attack, which supporters of President Donald Trump had openly plotted for weeks.
“The FBI director and other senior officials have consistently downplayed the intelligence value of social media posts by Trump supporters prior to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, suggesting the bureau had no ‘actionable’ warning that the Capitol would be targeted by a mob,” NBC News reported Monday. “But according to a document entered into court records last week, an FBI agent acknowledged in a February investigative report that angry Trump supporters were talking openly in the days before the riot about bringing guns to the Capitol to start a ‘revolution.'”
“A review of open source and social media posts leading up to and during the event indicates that individuals participating on the ‘Stop the Steal,’ rally were angered about the results of the 2020 presidential election and felt that Joseph Biden had unlawfully been declared ‘President-Elect,'” FBI Special Agent Patricia Norden wrote. “Users in multiple online groups and platforms discussed traveling to the Capitol armed or making plans to start a ‘revolution’ on that day.”
CNN continues its reporting on Capitol attackers and the things that led them to bring violence to the legislative body on Jan. 6. Speaking to a series of true believers about the myths that inspired their riots, one man claimed that former President Donald Trump was “anointed by God.” [My Notes: Trump is NOT, NEVER was, “anointed by God”! That is 100% outright blasphemy and heresy! Trump IS a forerunner for the Antichrist!]
His mother JoAnn just finished treatment for Leukemia and she’s worried that her son is about to spend the rest of his life in jail.
“I love the person he used to be but I despise the person that he is now,” she said, breaking down in tears. “He’s not my son. And I still have a hard time believing that he did what he did. If he gets 20 years in prison, he’ll be 70 years old before he gets out of there. Trump doesn’t care about any of those people that stormed the Capitol for him. He doesn’t care one iota about them.”
The reason I still deal with this and write about Trump from time to time is because he just will NOT go away! And a small but rabid remnant of his followers DON’T want Trump to go away!!
Poll: 30 percent of GOP voters believe Trump will ‘likely’ be reinstated this year
A legal mechanism or constitutional provision that would, somehow, enable Trump to reenter the White House as president does NOT exist.
Nearly a third (30%) of Republican voters believe that it is “likely” that Donald Trump will retake the Oval Office and be reinstated as President of the United States, a new poll has found, according to The Hill.
The poll still showed a vast majority of Republicans, Democrats and independents thinking it would be unlikely for Trump to return to office.
However, 13% of Democrats agree with the nearly one third of Republicans that a Trump return in 2022 is “likely,” as do over a quarter (26%) of independents.
The survey, which was taken from June 17 to June 18, follows reports from earlier this month that Trump himself has been telling people that he would be reinstated by August, citing his claims – all of which were found to be baseless – that the 2020 election was “stolen” from him, The Hill reported.
But regardless of what people believe, Trump becoming president in 2022 is, in fact, next to impossible regardless of the circumstances. The electoral victory of Joe Biden was certifiedand the line of presidential succession established in the US Constitution already dictates exactly who would take over should something happen to him.
A legal mechanism or constitutional provision that would, somehow, enable Trump to reenter the White House as president does not exist.
So there it is. There is still yet a rag-tag, gaggle of rabid traitors and idiots who “think” that every word, aka LIE, Trump uttered was a “divine counsel”!! And that Trump “will return”. So, hate it as much as I do Trump & Co. NEED to be watched CLOSELY…very closely.
Scientists from the Cleveland Clinic, USA, have recently evaluated the effectiveness of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccination among individuals with or without a history of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection.
The study findings reveal that individuals with previous SARS-CoV-2 infection do not get additional benefits from vaccination, indicating that COVID-19 vaccines should be prioritized to individuals without prior infection.
The study was conducted on 52,238 employees in the Cleveland Clinic. A positive RT-PCR test was considered to define SARS-CoV-2 infection. The participants received two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at an interval of 28 days. A participant was considered vaccinated after 14 days of receiving the 2nd vaccine dose. Similarly, a participant who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 at least 42 days before the vaccination initiation was considered previously infected.
Of all enrolled participants, 5% had previous SARS-CoV-2 infection. Compared to 59% of non-infected participants, only 47% of previously infected participants were vaccinated by the end of the study. About 63% of all vaccinated participants received the Moderna vaccine.
The analysis of cumulative COVID-19 incidence revealed that during the course of the study, SARS-CoV-2 infection occurred almost exclusively in participants who were not previously infected and were not vaccinated.
Interestingly, no significant difference in COVID-19 incidence was observed between previously infected and currently unvaccinated participants, previously infected and currently vaccinated participants, and previously uninfected and currently vaccinated participants.
Specifically, of all infections during the study period, 99.3% occurred in participants who were not infected previously and remained unvaccinated. In contrast, only 0.7% of infections occurred in participants who were not previously infected but were currently vaccinated.
Importantly, not a single incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection was observed in previously infected participants with or without vaccination.
…A practical and useful message would be to consider symptomatic COVID-19 to be as good as having received a vaccine, and that people who have had COVID-19 confirmed by a reliable laboratory test do not need the vaccine.
The study concludes, “individuals who have laboratory-confirmed symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection are unlikely to benefit from COVID-19 vaccination, and vaccines can be safely prioritized to those who have not been infected before.”
Well, well, well. The Cleveland study, once again, PROVES “The Experts” are- as always- WRONG.
I’ve chronicled the “Kid Covid” story from it’s genesis to this point. And EVERY prediction “the experts” have made has been WRONG.
EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
If it wasn’t for the collusion of the government(s), media, and government sponsored “doctors/scientists” and their 24/7/365 LYING for over 18 MONTHS this would NOT even be a *blip* on the radar!!
“Governments” What do mean “governments” plural??
G7 meeting in Cornwall
– No testing
– No quarantine
– No social distance
– No facemasks
Notice the HYPOCRITICAL “Do-As-I-Say-NOT-As-I-Do” Leaders of The World are BLATANTLY NOTdoing themselves the very- TYRANNICAL- protocol that they demand everyone else do!! It is PAST time to tell all these Marxist Jackasses to shove it!!
NEVER LET A (MANUFACTURED) “CRISIS” GO TO WASTE-
Let me close with a few videos/articles shared with me from Paul A. Downs:
Spike Protein & Immune Escape – Dr Robert Malone (Inventor mRNA Vaccines), PhD Bret Weinstein & Steve
[My Notes: Yes. You read the headline correctly. 60 MILLION DOSES of the coronavirus vaccine are being ORDERED DESTROYED!! Here is part of what this “Far Right, Fake News, Conspiracy site” reported…]
WASHINGTON — Federal regulators have told Johnson & Johnson that about 60 million doses of its coronavirus vaccine produced at a troubled Baltimore factorycannot be used because of possible contamination, according to people familiar with the situation.
The Food and Drug Administration plans to allow about 10 million doses to be distributed in the United States or sent to other countries, but with a warning that regulators cannot guarantee that Emergent BioSolutions, the company that operates the plant, followed good manufacturing practices.
The agency has not yet decided whether Emergent can reopen the factory, which has been closed for two months because of regulatory concerns, the people said.
Covid News: C.D.C. Is Investigating “Rare” Heart Problem After Vaccinations
[My Notes: Johnson and Johnson is the NOT only producer of the toxin/coronavirus “vaccine” that is in trouble.]
Federal officials are reviewing nearly 800 cases of “rare” heart problems following immunization with the coronavirus vaccines made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, according to data presented at a vaccine safety meeting on Thursday…More than half of the heart problems were reported in people ages 12 to 24, while the same age group accounted for only 9 percent of the millions of doses administered.
“We clearly have an imbalance there,” said Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, a vaccine expert at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who presented the data. [My Notes: Well, DUH!! Of course you have an “imbalance”!!!]
…Advisers to the agency will meet on June 18 to explore the potential links to the complications: myocarditis, inflammation of the heart muscle, and pericarditis, inflammation of the membrane surrounding the heart.
About two-thirds of the cases were in young males, with a median age of 30 years. The numbers are higher than would be expected for that age group, officials said…
…As of May 31, 216 people had experienced myocarditis or pericarditis after one dose of either vaccine, and 573 after the second dose…The second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was linked to about twice as many cases as the second dose of the vaccine made by Moderna.
There were 79 reported cases of the heart problems among those 16 or 17 years old, compared with a maximum of 19 cases expected for that group. And in the group of young people ages 18 to 24, there were 196 cases, compared with an expected maximum of 83.
Italy will stop administering AstraZeneca’s Covid vaccine to people under the age of 60, the Italian government announced on Friday, amid a DROP in the country’s level of infections that meant the risks of distributing the vaccine to younger people was judged to outweigh the benefits.
The AstraZeneca vaccine has been under scrutiny after…reports of rare and severe blood clots in those who had received the vaccine emerged in Europe.
OK. So The New York Times is NOT“a Far Right, Fake News, Conspiracy site”, it is rather a quite Left leaning, MSM news source… YET, even a Liberal source is sounding the alarm on the myriad of problems surrounding coronavirus and the Warp Speed, Emergency Authorisation “vaccines”…NOT ONE vaccine being used ANY WHERE IN THE WORLD has passed FDA’s FULL approval.
NOT ONE. ONLYEmergency Authorisation!
Let’s Look at The Government’s OFFICIAL CDC/VAERS Reports: SOURCE.
Through June 4, 2021
[My Notes: These are ONLY the ones reported SO FAR. Those who do the actual research say the actual, true cases are as high as 25-40 TIMES HIGHER than what is reported.]
WHY did so many in the “medical” and “science” fields LIE to the ENTIRE WORLD for 18 MONTHS?
BECAUSE these “medical experts” and “scientific experts” were ALL ON THE GOVERNMENT DOLE.
“But WHY would almost every government on earth LIE to all of us??”
Because NONE of this was about safety, medicine, or a REAL danger…THIS was, and IS clearly, plainly, and ONLY about CONTROL!
I have consistently said this since January of 2020…and I actually had coronavirus…I had to be tested for it to even know I had it, (was at the doctor’s for an unrelated, what I thought was a routine check-up. I am almost 62. Part of the protocol now is test all patients/guinea pigs for coronavirus. I had NO fever. NO sweats. NO chills. NO shortness of breath. NONE of the signs associated with coronavirus. Yet tested positive for it.)
And I stand by actual, real MEDICINE AND SCIENCE, now supported by my own personal experience, that:
EVERYONE in the government, 99% of the media, and ALL “doctors and scientists” on the government dole ARE LIARS WHO ARE LYING 24/7/365!
Still not convinced that THIS is about CONTROL?
Are we who are Free Born Citizens of a Constitutional Republic just going to let the Idiotic, Tyrannical Leftist NUTS TELL US what WE can and can NOT do?
What we can and can NOT think?
What we can and can NOT believe?
HOW we can and can NOT live?!!
Does anyone find it strange that social distancing didn’t help in the past … in history when it was just part of life to not travel or socialize as much as we do now with all of the advancements?
It still spreads – is this thing going to burn itself out because we just sit at home?
EVEN with flu vaccinations many more still die of flu and why haven’t govts shut us down to flatten curve and tell us to wash our hands over that ??!!!
They say “don’t compare it to the flu”- but how could you not ? it’s relevant its viral infection that kills tens of thousands and is spread the same way? They are THE EXACT SAME FAMILY OF VIRUSES! With almost, if not IDENTICAL SYMPTOMS…except Flu is far worse in every conceivable way.
I THINK IT’S OBVIOUS THAT I AM NOT GOING TO REMAIN SILENT AND PASSIVELY DO NOTHING.
ANY AND EVERY LIBERTY AND RIGHT WE HAVE WAS FOUGHT FOR. BLOOD, MUCH BLOOD, WAS SPILLED TO GAIN THESE LIBERTIES, TO ENSURE THEM, AND TO KEEP THEM. YES, THEY ARE ALL GOD-GIVEN…BUT THERE ARE EVIL MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE TIRELESSLY AT WORK TO STEAL, KILL, AND DESTROY ALL OUR GOD-GIVEN LIBERTIES AND RIGHTS. THEY ARE LIKE THEIR FATHER, THE DEVIL. JOHN 8:31-44.
Liberty lost MUST be FOUGHT FOR to BE regained.
======== The Below is the type of Liberal hypocrite we’re up against.
When you have doubts about the agenda, aka propaganda, that you’re pushing, and yet you push anyway…remember-
And Patriots, remember…
Let me close with this-
John Adams: “Our Consolation must be this, my dear, that Cities may be rebuilt, and a People reduced to Poverty, may acquire fresh Property: But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever. When the People once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it.”
The below was BEFORE Mueller had even released his Report!
89 Criminal Indictments
24 Criminal Convictions
5 Prison Sentences
All in under 2 years!
LEGAL TIP: I learned in my years as a defense lawyer that roughly 100% of the time the party who wants something hidden is the party who thinks it’s damaging to them; in other news, Devin Nunes says the Mueller Report should be “burned up” and McConnell says no one should read it…and Trump says it’s a “witch hunt”… [MY NOTES: There sure are a LOT of “witches” caught in this witch hunt.]
-Seth Abramson, Attorney, researcher, author.
FROM MUELLER’S REPORT AND CONGRESSIONAL TESTIMONY:
SURE ARE A LOT OF GUILTY PEOPLE LISTED BELOW:
YOU CAN’T BE ANY PLAINER. TRUMP WAS NOTEXONERATED.
SAID MORE THAN ONE-
SURE WERE A LOTOF “WITCHES” CAUGHT IN THIS “WITCH HUNT”!
AGAIN, PLAIN AS DAY. TRUMP IS GUILTY.
ALL THE ABOVE HAS LED TO THIS:
Like many people I paid (and pay) close enough attention to what is going on, AND I do my own research, dig into multiple sources, utilise multiple points of view, and sift, read, study…and even without Mueller’s report or congressional, even without both impeachments, and now all these emails and records being made public…yes, withoutall of that, just by reading various independent news sites, what was reported daily on every news channel, and from Trump’s own Tweets, interviews, press conferences/releases, and words…I KNEW he was guilty. Guilty as sin.
The Mueller Report, Comey’s testifying, Mueller testifying, Michael Cohen’s testifying, et al only bolsters what was ALREADY known and knowable. I personally wrote at the least 30 articles on this. To anyone that paid attention, and is honest, Trump was, and IS guilty. “How guilty?” So guilty that he was impeached TWICE…and only a GUILTY GOP kept him in office!
To be brutally honest, I hate the fact that THIS STILL needs being addressed.
IF we had real and honest justice Trump would have been in prison back long ago…but, sadly, we do not have real and honest justice.
In an exclusive interview with The Raw Story Podcast, Donald Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, shared his prediction that indictments will be issued against senior leaders of the Trump Organization. Cohen, who served time in federal prison after pleading guilty to campaign finance violations, tax fraud, and bank fraud, said, “I really do believe like within the next 30 to 60 days, you’re going to start seeing some of the — we’ll call them low hanging fruit — indictments,you know, like Barry Weisselberg [Manager of Trump’s Central Park Wollman Rink] and Allen Weisselberg [CFO of the Trump organization].”
It doesn’t sound like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell considers former President Donald Trump the leader of the Republican Party.
First, what Senorita Lindsey Graham said, Dr. Jekyll:
While Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Fox News host Sean Hannity last month that the Republican Party can’t move forward without Donald Trump.
“I’ve always liked Liz Cheney, but she’s made a determination that the Republican Party can’t grow with President Trump,” Graham said. “I’ve determined we can’t grow without him.”
“[Trump] could make the Republican Party something that nobody else I know can make it,” Graham said in March. “He can make it bigger. He can make it stronger. He can make it more diverse. And he also could destroy it.”
Turtle McConnell, Mr. Hyde, responded:
But when Fox asked McConnell about whether Trump will determine his agenda,McConnell made it clear the answer is “NO“.
“Well, he has his own agenda,” said McConnell’s dodge. “And my view is, we’re going to focus on this administration and the future, what they’re trying to do to the country and make it a referendum in the fall of ’22 on how people feel about this new government they narrowly elected while they continue the 50-50 Senate and a close score over in the House.”
Thus far, the GOP has committed itself to be the “party of no” instead of working with Democrats to pass legislation that even Trump was trying to make happen. Trump infamously wanted his own infrastructure package that he said was worth $2 trillion. Democrats at the time were eager to help make it happen, but the McConnell-run Senate at the time was a dead-end.
From 1976 to 2015 I was a Republican. BUT when Trump announced his run for the presidency, and then became the G.O.P. nominee… it was the G.O.P. that left me and countless other millions of real/Biblical Christians, and real/Constitutional Conservatives homeless…UNTIL…
Millions have already made “The America’s Party” their new Christian and Conservative home… I work to the end that every single one of the 100,000,000 people who call themselves Conservatives move AWAY FROM the rotting, festering, dying G.O.P., and move TO “America’s Party“.
For those of us who have recovered from COVID-19, the failure of those making policy recommendations to acknowledge and account for the immunity developed naturally following a COVID-19 infection is beyond frustrating. At one point in an e-mail exchange, Dr. Anthony Fauci noted that because COVID-19 is an RNA virus, the development of natural immunity was probable. At the time, he also said this would need to be confirmed.
Several studies have now shown that this immunity exists. In November of 2020, The New York Times interviewed several researcherswho explained, based on their findings, that natural immunity did indeed occur, and there were indications it may be long-lasting:
“That amount of [immune] memory would likely prevent the vast majority of people from getting hospitalized disease, severe disease, for many years,” said Shane Crotty, a virologist at the La Jolla Institute of Immunology who co-led the new study.
The findings are likely to come as a relief to experts worried that immunity to the virus might be short-lived, and that vaccines might have to be administered repeatedly to keep the pandemic under control.
This research finding followed the knowledge that COVID-19’s first cousin, SARS-CoV-1, elicited durable immunity for at least 17 yearsand provided protection against a new strain of the virus. Additionally, they found that individuals never infected or exposed to either SARS virus demonstrated an immune response to the N-protein in both viruses based on exposure to other betacoronaviruses that circulate, causing cold-like symptoms:
Thus, infection with betacoronaviruses induces multi-specific and long-lasting T cell immunity against the structural N protein. Understanding how pre-existing N- and ORF1-specific T cells that are present in the general population affect the susceptibility to and pathogenesis of SARS-CoV-2 infection is important for the management of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Instead of conducting studies to determine whether this was the case with COVID, the global health bureaucracy recommended draconian lockdowns and other mitigation methods. A logical deduction is that this type of T cell reactivity was widespread, given there were an extraordinary number of mild cases and positive tests in asymptomatic people. The lack of attention and study following these findings means we will never know.
Several recent studies have confirmed that recovered COVID-19 patients can expect long-term immunity.One current report states:
Many people who have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 will probably make antibodies against the virus for most of their lives. So, suggest researchers who have identified long-lived antibody-producing cells in the bone marrow of people who have recovered from COVID-191.
The study provides evidence that immunity triggered by SARS-CoV-2 infection will be extraordinarily long-lasting. Adding to the good news, “the implications are that vaccines will have the same durable effect”, says Menno van Zelm, an immunologist at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
While the researchers couch this with the caution that COVID-19 variants may blunt some protective effects, that remains to be seen. The Cleveland Clinic just released the most extensive study of natural and vaccinated immunity to COVID-19,which included 52,238 employees:
Specifically, of all infections during the study period, 99.3% occurred in participants who were not infected previously and remained unvaccinated. In contrast, only 0.7% of infections occurred in participants who were not previously infected but were currently vaccinated.
Importantly, not a single incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection was observed in previously infected participants with or without vaccination.
With further statistical analysis, it was observed that the COVID-19 vaccination significantly reduced the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection in previously uninfected participants but not in previously infected participants.
Although the study did not directly estimate the duration of protection from natural infection, it was observed that previously infected participants remained protected against COVID-19 for at least 10 months after the symptom onset or a positive test result.
The “experts” have been wrong ALL along the way. We had Spring Break, and Sturgis 2020 AND 2021. We, sadly, all the rioting over the death of a repeated felon who was in and out of prison and jail…each time there were NO breakouts of “the dreaded” corona. NONE. NOT ONE.
Florida, Texas, South Dakota, and 6-7 other states FULLY REOPENED MONTHS ago, South Dakota NEVER did what the “experts” said they should do…NO breakouts, NO widespread pandemic, NOTHING!
America needs to TELL these so-called “experts” to BUZZ OFF!
Since April 12th I have been- past tense- sick. While in my “down-time/can’t go anywhere-can’t do anything” mode I have had a LOT of articles get back logged in my news feed that I need to take care of.
Since they cover a rather wide range of topics from various sources, and different point-of-views I am resurrecting “Quick Hits”. This will be a flurry of articles with one, no more than three links it, as opposed to my usual 7-13 links.
On Wednesday’s edition of MSNBC’s “The Beat,” former top Robert Mueller prosecutor Andrew Weissman highlighted how the calling of Trump Organization executive Jeff McConney to testify before a Manhattan grand jury signals prosecutors might already have their window into what makes the company tick.
“I’d like to throw out one more name, which is Jeff McConney, because I don’t think that’s gotten enough attention because last week the reports were that he went into the state grand jury and he is the controller of the Trump Organization,” said Weissman. “So, again, all speculation, but clearly you’re looking for an insider. That’s why there is so much focus on Allen Weisselberg trying to get somebody who is on the inside who would know where every penny went. Well, that’s the controller as well as the CFO. So if Jeff McConney is cooperating, that is really bad news potentially for Weisselberg and for the Trump Organization and other individuals up to and including the former president.”
“In other words, Manhattan may have found their insider, because it would be unusual to put somebody like McConney into the state grand jury, where he would be given immunity as soon as he testifies automatically, if they didn’t think that he had something useful to provide,” added Weissman.
Don McGahn’s newly released congressional testimony transcript will make it much easier for the DOJ to prosecute Trump for obstruction of justice, and place huge public pressure on the DOJ to do so. Once again, the Democrats in Congress know exactly what they’re doing.
In the last 7-10 days I’ve had several discussions with people who are either OCD about Trump (who isn’t president anymore) ,and either give Biden-Harris and The Dems a pass on everything (“at least he’s not Trump”), or outright applaud the Hard Left agenda the Biden-Harris coalition is pushing.
OR they are OCD about Biden-Harris and the Dems and shout down and attack those who say that “Trump IS out of office…he doesn’t matter anymore”…
EXCEPT that Trump and his goons from before November 3rd to right NOW has pushed repeatedly DISPROVEN, wack-a-doodle, idiotic conspiracy theories, they PLANNED/ORGANISED the January 6th, FAILED Trump Insurrection, engaged in murder, vandalism, assault, treason, trespassing, attempted murder, insurrection, sedition, and had Trump’s goons found Pelosi, McConnell, Pence, among others they would have tried to murder them too. There are even PHONY “patriots” who say “we need to move on” and let Trump and his goons get away with murder, vandalism, assault, treason, trespassing, attempted murder, insurrection, sedition!!!
THIS is utter insanity! It is a stupidity that beggars description! Our Founding Fathers would NOT put up with THIS! Back in 2015 they would have stepped in and said ‘NO MORE!”…and it would BE no more!
Biden, Harris, The Democrats, and ALL Liberals ARE evil. Yes. You’ll get no disagreement from me there.
BUT so Is Trump and ALL of his goons (Cruz, Rubio, Gaetz, McConnell…)!
And we have the resources and ability to watch and deal with BOTH sides to the FULL extent of The Constitution and The Law. Evil IS evil, period. Fight ALL evil. God and The Constitution do NOT allow for this INSANE “buffet-pick-and-choose” style of fighting only the evil we choose to.
Every time there’s a national disaster, a gigantic event, a shooting, a breakthrough, really any news at all, you can rely on television news to find an expert. Some of them know quite a lot about what happened, what will happen, and why. But when it comes to a lot of experts, they really have no idea what they’re talking about.
Blogger Eric Barker points out that political experts’ predicitons are only slightly better than a random guess, and way worse than a statistical model. In fact, so called experts were better at predicting events outside their own field. Barker points to a study from the 1980′s, when Philip Tetlock had 284 political “experts” make about a hundred predictions. The study is summarized in the book Everything Is Obvious* Once You Know the Answer:
For each of these predictions, Tetlock insisted that the experts specify which of two outcomes they expected and also assign a probability to their prediction. He did so in a way that confident predictions scored more points when correct, but also lost more points when mistaken. With those predictions in hand, he then sat back and waited for the events themselves to play out. Twenty years later, he published his results, and what he found was striking: Although the experts performed slightly better than random guessing, they did notperform as well as even a minimally sophisticated statistical model. Even more surprisingly, the experts did slightly better when operating outside their area of expertise than within it…
Another study found that “experts” who try to predict the outcome of Supreme Court cases weren’t that much better than a computer. The world saw evidence of that in their recent decision about health care, surprising nearly every “expert” out there.
But that’s politics. Other fields should be better, right? Nope. Technology is the same way. Another scientist analyzed the accuracy of technology-trend predictions. About eighty percent of them were wrong, regardless of whether those predictions were made by experts or not.
…In 2005, Tetlock wrote a book about expert prediction called “Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know?” In it, he explains that not only are experts often wrong, but they’re nearly never called out on it. The New Yorker explains:
When they’re wrong, they’re rarely held accountable, and they rarely admit it, either. They insist that they were just off on timing, or blindsided by an improbable event, or almost right, or wrong for the right reasons. They have the same repertoire of self-justifications that everyone has, and are no more inclined than anyone else to revise their beliefs about the way the world works, or ought to work, just because they made a mistake.
Tetlock points out that while we’re terrible at predictions, experts fall into two “cognitive styles” when they’re making those predictions: foxes and hedgehogs. The Huffington Post summarizes:
Foxes know many things while hedgehogs know one big thing. Being deeply knowledgeable on one subject narrows one’s focus and increases confidence, but it also blurs dissenting views until they are no longer visible, thereby transforming data collection into bias confirmation and morphing self-deception into self-assurance. The world is a messy, complex, and contingent place with countless intervening variables and confounding factors, which foxes are comfortable with but hedgehogs are not. Low scorers in Tetlock’s study were “thinkers who ‘know one big thing,’ aggressively extend the explanatory reach of that one big thing into new domains, display bristly impatience with those who ‘do not get it,’ and express considerable confidence that they are already pretty proficient forecasters.” By contrast, says Tetlock, high scorers were “thinkers who know many small things (tricks of their trade), are skeptical of grand schemes, see explanation and prediction not as deductive exercises but rather as exercises in flexible ‘ad hocery’ that require sticking together diverse sources of information, and are rather diffident about their own forecasting prowess.”
But what about the 10,000 hours technique? Did you really just spend 10,000 hours in order to have only a slightly better than random chance at predicting the outcome of your chosen field?
Extensive research in a wide range of fields shows that many people not only fail to become outstandingly good at what they do, no matter how many years they spend doing it, they frequently don’t even get any better than they were when they started.
In field after field, when it came to centrally important skills—stockbrokers recommending stocks, parole officers predicting recidivism, college admissions officials judging applicants—people with lots of experience were no better at their jobs than those with very little experience.
The moral here?
We really have no idea what’s going to happen… ever.
The above is from 2012…9 years ago.
“Has it got any better?”
FIRST, you did read ALL the above didn’t you??
Secondly, people are, well, people. We haven’t really changed since Eden. There truly is nothing new under the Sun.
Now, let’s look with a THINKING EYE toward today’s so-called “Experts”.
Let me “set the stage” first. I’ll posit direct quotes, stats, evidence…from the direct back-and-forth with these “experts” and then apply LOGIC, REASON, AND CRITICAL THINKING, and see where things shake out at.
Author of Tell Your Children. Revolting. Have you ever had a man go away for business come back with a tan?
This, friends, is what you call a smoking gun. Not so much for Saint Fauci – just the entire community of virologists and scientists who insisted for a year that the China-GOF-2019 virus couldn’t possibly have come out of a lab, nosiree Bob.
Fauci FOIA emails show a man prioritizing protection of his institutions, & not a man interested in getting to the bottom of the mysteries surrounding COVID-19.
Bureaucrat gonna bureaucrat, even if that meant total chaos & an 18 month disinformation campaign from the “experts.”
It is pretty clear what happened here; Fauci panicked and tried to cover his @ss over the obvious; a leak from a lab he funded and supported that led to massive misinterpretation of data and an unbelievable overreaction that caused immeasurable damage and suffering…
And this, Fauci, is their person who has been the “head” of the NIH for 35 years. Whatever expertise he supposedly possesses, it is located in his posterior.Misleading the public in this matter is reprehensible. These are NOT honest, well intended deceptions.
I have been to a wet market and seen its horrifying reality. When I first heard that COVID originated there, my thought was those markets could incubate anything.The more I learned, the more I questioned that premise. Worth a read: SOURCE.
I’m a science writer and have worked on the staff of Nature, Science and, for many years, on the New York Times.
Origin of Covid — Following the Clues
Did people or nature open Pandora’s box at Wuhan?
We all knew it came out of a lab. You had to do your homework & piece things together yourself but we knew. One big clue was that the more they pushed up against the idea that it came from a lab, the more you knew that was the truth.
“They” sat on info that could have aided a faster solution to save lives. Would not be a long leap to charge the ghouls, especially Fauci for involuntary manslaughter.
A researcher wrote to Fauci with a hypothesis that elements of the virus didn’t match what he and his colleagues thought was evolutionary. He said they would do more work That scientist and his colleagues later published an article stating that the virus was natural in origin.
Their hypothesis was proved incorrect by the data, and they stated that in the article.
People are running around claiming that the email from Kristian Anderson was proof (even though it was not), because it confirms their prior beliefs.
@K_G_Andersen opined two months later (March 2020) that the virus was not genetically engineered. I exposed his opinion as merely a belief. (A belief is NOT KNOWLEDGE!)This is how to expose the argument from authority!The WHO cites Andersen to attack lab-creation of the virus. Smh
The greatest thing about this interview is that halfway through Fauci starts defending himself on the gain-of-function question (oh, the science changed, we got more data, I dint do nuffin wrong) – a question she has no idea exists and didn’t ask. WITH VIDEO.
If I have to listen to Fauci explain one more time how our understanding changes with time… as if we don’t all know that already. The whole point is that his understanding didn’t change, he just lied even when he knew better.
Per Fauci in Jan 2021, “double masking makes common sense”. The Fauci followers started double masking even though there was no “science” behind it. He just made it up. [My Note: And then laughed and laughed as he watched countless millions follow his every idiotic utterance!]
“Trust the science”. The science is ever changing but trust it.
[My Notes: NOT so much that the science is changing on this. From all that we know this is not really that mysterious. What HAS muddied the discourse up from the beginning are the so-called “Experts”. There are two major groups for sourcing on ALL issues. The one’s on the dole from the government or a business/group that has something to gain and/or hide. The other is independent, critical thinking, ask questions and let the evidence say WHAT IT ACTUALLY SAYS. Fauci is on the government dole, AND personally invested and tied to businesses and people IN the virology and vax fields…Fauci is NOT to be trusted any further than you can spit in a F5 Tornado! Period.]
Science doesn’t change the size of virus particles. For years (as recently as last May) the CDC said masks do not reduce the spread of influenza.The coronavirus particles are even smaller than the flu. That’s why Fauci originally said only the sick should wear masks.
1/ Wowowow. The government (USG) planned to have the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) – an INDEPENDENT group – examine the origins of #SARSCoV2. How do I know? Fauci told a top @CDCgov official about it in Feb. 2020. That NAS inquiry never happened, though.
Gee, I wonder why.
2/ Also, please note how Fauci distances himself from any questions about the origin in this note: “this is not my area of expertise and so I have backed off…” I guess in the 12 days since he emailed Auchincloss the gain of function paper he forgot all about it!
Also, having a group of “evolutionary biologists” study viral origins predetermines the conclusion, n’est-ce pas? #FauciLiedPeopleDied
Trust the science. Verify the scientist! (The longer they have worked for the government, the less they should be trusted!)
Hey @RandPaul , next time you have Fauci under oath, ask him what happened to the official federal investigation@theNASEM was supposed to run on the origins of #sarscov2 – and why he instead worked in secret with other scientists to discourage examination of the lab leak theory.
Because that was clearly the (successful) intent of the paper that @K_G_Andersen and others published in @naturemedicine (with the hidden backing of Fauci, his boss Francis Collins, and Sir Jeremy James Farrar of the Wellcome Trust).
Hey, @K_G_Andersen says we have nothing to worry about, it’s “just science.”
Whew. That’s a relief. As a reporter I always take the unswornpublic statements of the people I’m covering on faith, especially when the stakes are really high.
Yay, I can quit investigating now!
Real Scientists vs. Fauci & Kristian G. Andersen.
Fauci “The Fraud” is on the right…j/s…
I’ll close with this quote from a doctor NOT on the Government dole-
LIE: We don’t know much about coronavirus.
This is one of the media’s[My Note: and government’s]favorite lies.It is much scarier if it is unknown.We know that coronavirus is a zoonotic disease. In other words, it’s natural hosts are birds and animals as opposed to humans. We vaccinate domestic animals for them. We know that four forms cause colds every year.We know it mutates and evolves just like the flu. We know it sometimes becomes deadly as it has in SARS and MERS. We have done medical studies oncoronavirus as a coexisting illness in patients in the past.
