Fewer Kids Getting Vaccines, Fewer Kids Dying – Related?

This article from Children’s Health Defense brings up some statistics regarding fewer children dying in the past few months, that happens to be coinciding with fewer children getting vaccines because of the lockdowns in which parents haven’t been taking the kids to the doctors for exams (and shots). Like there’s a correlation? No surprise there.

Vitamin D Deficiency May Explain Why Black People Have Higher COVID Mortality Rates

An MIT study has found that race plays a major role, as much as age and one’s preexisting conditions, in a COVID-19 patient’s chance of survival. Apparently, black people have a higher death rate.

CBS Boston quotes the study author thus: “We controlled for that share of the population that has health insurance, diabetes, smoking, obesity. So, it’s got to be something that’s not that. It could be something like the quality of the insurance or the quality of the health care system.” In other words, they aren’t saying it overtly, but I think it is implied that the insurance and health care systems might be “racist,”  as a reference to “systemic racism” that we’ve been hearing about in the news these days.

But there is a good explanation in terms of certain dietary factors. Like lack of vitamin D is a good explanation, in my opinion. Northwestern University researchers have found that those COVID-19 patients with severe vitamin D deficiency have much higher COVID mortality rates.

Now, some people have criticized that study citing that mainly age is the relevant factor for COVID-19 fatality rates. A high percentage of the COVID-19 deaths are taking place in nursing homes. But the vitamin D deficiency theory makes sense to me given that COVID-19 involves the respiratory tract and fluid buildup in the lungs. According to this article published at NIH, “Vitamin D appears capable of inhibiting pulmonary inflammatory responses while enhancing innate defence mechanisms against respiratory pathogens.”

This article on The Lancet backs up those findings regarding vitamin D deficiency and COVID, citing additional studies, and it mentions that “black and minority ethnic people—who are more likely to have vitamin D deficiency because they have darker skin—seem to be worse affected than white people by COVID-19.”

This study on NIH states: “Blacks and Hispanics consistently manifest lower serum concentrations of 25(OH)D than non-Hispanic whites [8–12], primarily because increased skin pigmentation inhibits cutaneous synthesis of cholecalciferol, the metabolic precursor to 25(OH)D [13]. This has led many investigators to conclude that blacks and Hispanics are at higher risk of vitamin D deficiency than whites [8–12], and as a result, may also have increased risk of developing associated chronic disease conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and cancer [14, 15].” (And COVID-19?)

For some reason it really seems to be difficult to get mainstream medical practitioners, researchers and journalists to take the importance of nutrition (and malnutrition) seriously. It has been my own personal experience that mainstream doctors are either overly (and irrationally) faithful in the pharmaceutical industry or they are just dishonestly connected to those companies, or both.

Note how the government “public health experts” such as Dr. Fauci and our state officials rarely if ever even mention the importance of being nutritionally fit to defend against COVID-19 or any other type of disease including the flu.

But I think that the initial MIT researchers I mentioned at the top in their not even considering nutritional deficiencies and instead wanting to look at the insurance or health care systems, tells us something.

Has Alan Dershowitz Abandoned Support for Constitutional Rights?

Harvard lawyer Alan Dershowitz said that if you refuse a vaccine, “the state has the power to literally take you to a doctor’s office and plunge a needle into your arm.” Yes, he said that.

Dershowitz said in a recent interview that “You have no right not to be vaccinated.” Without regard to the question of safety of the vaccines, Dershowitz said that the State has a right to forcibly inject medicines and chemicals into you against your will.

He cited many court cases to reinforce his assertions, and asserts that the U.S. Constitution grants the State the power to force vaccines on you, a power which supersedes your rights.

Simple-mindedly, he said that “you have no constitutional right to endanger the public and spread disease…”

Well, of course no one has a “right to spread disease.” But we all have a right to our bodily integrity, and the right to refuse any kind of medicines or chemicals forcibly injected into our bodies, especially medicines or chemicals that have known risks and dangers!

So basically Dershowitz says that we have no right to “endanger the public,” yet the State has a right to endanger us with harmful substances!

Regarding the court cases, rarely does a government court come to the side of the individual when the State wants to do something intrusive. Government courts and judges are tax-funded government employees, so the State is where their ultimate loyalty lies.

And I don’t know whether or not Dershowitz has addressed the importance of due process here. If the government is going to force you to submit to a forcible vaccine intrusion, shouldn’t the government first prove that you actually are a danger? Regarding the COVID flu/cold, we do know that most people who have the virus have either no symptoms or merely mild symptoms, and that the most recent studies concluded that only about a tenth of one percent of those who have the virus actually die from it.

And mustn’t the government also prove that the vaccine it wants to force into your body is safe, as well as effective? Look, if it’s not really effective then there’s no justification for forcing it on someone.

To this day, the government does not have evidence that vaccines are as safe and effective as Western culture has made many people believe. The flu vaccine has been as low as only 10% effective. And see this article on the ineffectiveness of the whooping cough vaccine.

On the vaccines specifically, manufacturers have a spotty record on the safety of vaccines, as many readers already know. (Or maybe they don’t know, given the censorship going on now of those who challenge the vaccine narrative.)

Given the pro-vaccine propaganda in the media, most people probably don’t know about all the lawsuits and government pay-outs to victims of vaccine injuries and deaths. But stab away anyway, says The Dersh.

One problem with vaccines is that they contain adjuvants including mercury and aluminum, which studies have shown those elements can accumulate in the arteries and the brain and cause neurological problems.

See Dr. Mercola: How Aluminum Damages Your Brain, Arjun Walia: Scientist Discovers Cells That ‘Ingest’ Vaccine Aluminum Are The Same Cells Found In Autistic Brains, Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease: Human Exposure to Aluminum Linked to Familial Alzheimer’s Disease, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: MMR Vaccine’s Poison Pill: Mumps After Puberty, Reduced Testosterone and Sperm Counts, Tracey Watson: The Real Reason Aluminum Is Added to Vaccines, Barbara Loe Fisher: The Historical Facts on Measles and the Measles Vaccine Censored by Mainstream Media, Geier DA, Kern JK, Sykes LK, Geier MR: Mercury-associated diagnoses are common among children diagnosed with pervasive developmental disorders, and Collective Evolution: What Big Pharma Doesn’t Tell Parents: The Truth About Aluminum & Mercury In Children’s Vaccines.

And here is an article by Dr. Meryl Nass on how vaccine mandates enrich the pharmaceutical industry. Those greedy sons-of-bitches. (Sorry for my foul language here.)

Dershowitz also stated that “you have no right not to wear a mask, you have no right to open up your business.” And that despite the risks involved in wearing the mask for longer periods of time. Those risks include oxygen deprivation and compromising one’s immune system, according to Dr. Russell Blaylock, as I mentioned here previously.

Dershowitz is obviously not thinking clearly there. And what do you mean, “no right to open up your business”? As Judge Napolitano pointed out, everyone has a right to due process, especially with this issue. If the government wants to accuse a business owner of being a threat to public health, the government must have evidence against the accused, and in fact there needs to be a trial. The business owner has a right to refute the government’s evidence, or “evidence,” and present one’s own defense.

As we have been hearing all around the country, business owners have a right to make a living and provide for themselves and their families.

You can’t just say that IF people go into that business they might get some virus from other people going into the business, and therefore based on such a prediction then order the business shut down (or ALL businesses for that matter, as the fascist governors have been doing). Not in a free society.

So of course people have a right to refuse a vaccine, people have a right to not wear a mask and people have a right to keep their businesses open. I have no idea what has made Professor Dershowitz become more authoritarian, but I find it disappointing.

COVID Corruption

This COVID stuff is being exploited by very bad people for ends not having anything to do with protecting the health and safety of the people.

As many people are already noticing, the hysterical 24/7 COVID propaganda is very similar to the post-9/11 24/7 propaganda, which contributed much to the advancing police state, and the surveillance state. And now we have hysterical propaganda and the advance of the medical and vaccine police state.

And it’s all a fraud. Try not to be influenced by the hysteria and fear-mongering.

What is the reality of the situation? Well, we know from recent studies, Stanford and University of Miami, that the COVID-19 coronavirus is much more widespread than previously thought, and the studies have shown that the actual infection fatality rate is just about .1%. That’s a tenth of one percent, which means it’s as serious as the seasonal flu.

Even the infectious bureaucrat Dr. Death, a.k.a. Dr. Fauci, wrote way back on February 28th that the fatality rate will probably turn out to be well less than 1%.

As you have already heard, most people who have the virus don’t even know it and have no symptoms, or if they do have symptoms they are mild symptoms.

The worry over people being “carriers” without knowing it is unfounded, given that there has been no worry that carriers of the flu virus each season can pass it on to others and cause deaths. Seasonal influenza kills tens of thousands of people each season in the U.S.

And now that some states have been reopening, we are seeing that the infection rate really is more widespread, but the death rate continues to fall, as is the case in Georgia.

So all the hysteria and panic over the past two months has been over nothing! There has never been any legitimate reason to order businesses closed in violation of the Constitution, and cancel events, concerts, ball games, make people stay “6 feet away,” wear masks, and all the other fascist mandates and restrictions.

What the governors and mayors have been doing to us has been criminal, as this is turning out to be a deliberate scheme, for corrupt reasons, for power grabs and for grabbing tax-funded “stimulus” money and much higher Medicare reimbursements.

Especially given that the scammers’ modeling has been wrong, modeling on which the national fascist lockdown has been based.

Therefore, there’s no point to doing all the testing, invasive “contact tracing” and tracking of people like in dystopian China.

So to summarize in some way what I have mentioned here previously, first we have the CDC changing its guidelines, in which “laboratory confirmation” of COVID-19 is not necessary, the feds encouraging doctors, hospitals and medical examiners to count non-COVID-19 deaths as “COVID-19” deaths, in order to artificially raise the COVID death count.

That is, if someone died from a heart attack or heart disease or kidney disease, or from a fall, that’s still counted as a “COVID” death, whether or not the person actually happened to test positive for coronavirus or was never even tested!

The states are following those new guidelines to publish significantly incorrect and fraudulent COVID death numbers as well. In Massachusetts, according to the Boston Globe, “Officials are now classifying as infected those who were likely stricken by the virus but did not have the diagnosis confirmed through a laboratory test,” as encouraged by the corrupt and dishonest CDC.

The Glob article also mentions that inflating the infection numbers is also toward “allocation of resources,” i.e. the states getting those huge federal stimulus checks.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and his fellow bureaucrats are extremely greedy, given that they are looking for federal handouts while Massachusetts already has a $3.5 billion “rainy day fund”!

The controversial Project Veritas interviewed New York funeral home directors who claimed that hospitals or medical examiners are putting “COVID” on death certificates as the cause of death, regardless of whether the person actually had the disease. “They’re writing COVID on all the death certificates…”

So this whole thing is just a corrupt scam. Those governors are real psychopaths, given what they are willing to inflict on millions of innocent people!

Also in New York, Gov. Cuomo has been ordering nursing homes to admit people known to have COVID-19 or tested positive for the virus, which obviously would be a threat to the other nursing home residents. The murderous Cuomo is either very stupid and incompetent or he’s intentionally wanting to contribute to higher COVID death counts, or both.

Besides the corruption and criminality, there is also incompetence, such as doctors who do not understand the dangerous impact that ventilators could have. Investigative researcher Jon Rappoport wrote a recent post on these issues, including:

A close and trusted researcher has told me the following: many older people live with chronically low oxygen levels. This may not be ideal, but they survive.

However, when such people arrive at hospitals, doctors can misinterpret the oxygen levels, believing these are dire emergency situations—and therefore, they put the patients on ventilators. With too much pressure, the result can be lung damage and death.

So, as I mentioned in an earlier post regarding the NIH’s warning about possible ventilator problems, one issue is too much oxygen being forced into the lungs.

And there could also be the problem of oxygen deprivation, as Rappoport notes.

And of course there is the financial issue, as noted above. Rappoprt continues:

Insurance money. In a phone interview, physician and Minnesota state senator, Scott Jensen, told me that hospitals, who are suffering very deep financial losses, are incentivized by Medicare to label as many patients as possible “COVID-19,” and to put them on ventilators.

Jensen stated that a patient on Medicare, diagnosed with straight pneumonia, would bring a $4600 payment to the hospital. The same patient, labeled “COVID-19 pneumonia,” would bring $13,000. And if that patient is put on a ventilator: $39,000.

Result? Patients unnecessarily put on ventilators. With the wrong protocol, harm and death could result.

Hospitals are paid more in Medicare funds for each confirmed or “presumed” coronavirus patient, as noted above with the CDC’s changed guidelines!

So, based on the actual truth, facts and empirical data, this virus has been at the same level of seriousness as a cold or the seasonal flu as I mentioned at the top. But COVID has been intentionally exaggerated by those government bureaucrats and the “news journalists” in the media, and not just for government handouts and social control but for other ulterior purposes.

The truth is, the “liberal” bureaucrats’ fascist agenda is rearing its ugly head now.

Besides the corruption, power trips and greed with bureaucrats and their crony cohorts, now we have the developing dystopian “contact tracing” stasi, in which bureaucrats are creating new agencies with people who love being invasive into other people private lives.

The “contact tracing” stasi want to know whom you have been with, your associations, all those aspects of your life that are none of their damn business!

Gov. Charlie Baker wants “contact tracing,” to slow the spread or even stop COVID-19. He wants these draconian policies until a vaccine is ready.

But what about the flu that kills tens of thousands in the U.S. each season? Right.

Therefore, this scheme has no legitimate or practical purpose other than to seize away whatever privacy and security people have in their lives.

Fascist California Gov. Gavin Newsom wants an “army” of contact tracers. Ack. The Clinton Foundation wants to create a national contact tracing force, using AmeriCorps. Ack!

What is this, an Alfred Hitchcock movie?

So, there is something more devious going on. Otherwise, why can’t the “officials” just protect the most vulnerable, the elderly, obese, diabetics and others with underlying serious health conditions, and leave the rest of us the hell alone?!

One thing I have noticed is that this COVID fiasco seems to have been preceded by Google, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms censoring alternative nutrition and health information.

That is relevant, given the obsession with not letting us have our freedom back “until we have a COVID vaccine” (which can be hazardous!) that some people including Bill Gates want to mandate on ALL people all over the world.

Yes, much of this crap is in devout service to the … pharmaceutical companies! (What a shock, I know.) And their damn vaccines.

Previous to this possibly planned COVID coronavirus situation, Google and Facebook had already been censoring health and nutrition websites and links from Facebook or Twitter pages or feeds.

For instance, Selfhack.com had a lengthy article on Google’s horrific censorship of health websites. It notes that Google’s recent policy updates have Google “penalizing every single site that they decided is not ‘mainstream’ enough, no matter how good their science is.”

You can check it out for yourself: type any health topic in Google, and look at what comes up in the first 10 results. WebMD, Healthline, and some hospitals usually. Then type it in Bing: you’ll see that Bing gives better and more relevant results every time.

Literally every health website has been penalized that is not affiliated with mainstream hospitals or institutions (such as the Mayo or Cleveland clinic), or that is not WebMD or Healthline (the 2 largest sites).

Selfhacked’s November, 2019 article says that mainstream health websites such as Healthline and WebMD mainly use sources from each other’s content and hospitals and government institutions, but not from peer-reviewed scientific articles.

I’ve actually interviewed several people who used to write for Healthline. They would frequently write about extremely serious and complex medical topics, such as cancer. I asked these people if they would be interested in writing a SelfHacked article. They all replied similarly, to the effect of: “oh, I don’t have the necessary background for that. Healthline articles are easy to write — I wouldn’t be qualified to write SelfHacked articles.”

With Google, says Selfhacked, it apparently doesn’t want to give you results of what you’re looking for, but what it wants you to see, based more on ideology.

And Dr. Joseph Mercola, who has had perhaps the most popular and most visited health-related website, also got his search results smashed by Google’s June, 2019 update, as he wrote in this November, 2019 article. Mercola refers to Healthline and WebMD as “Google-trusted” health websites, “both of which promote health-harming drugs and junk food with their articles.”

Mercola refers to the crony wheeling and dealing going on with Healthline and WebMD and the makers of junk food and pharmaceutical companies.

Another popular health website that also got whacked by Google, GreenMedInfo.com, also wrote about Google’s censorship of non-“mainstream” health websites. Its founder, Sayer Ji, seemed to touch on something that’s relevant to the current situation in his June, 2019 article writing,

Mercola.com has been a source of whistle-blowing information about Big Pharma and Big Tech collusion for decades, so it is no surprise why Google would take this action against his platform, and similar ones. In fact, signs of the coming purge came back in 2016, when GlaxoSmithKline signed a $715 million contract to partner with Google, and with increasing partnerships with pharmaceutical companies in 2019 like Sanofi.  Google’s parent company Alphabet is heavily invested in a vaccine company,Vaccitech, founded by scientists at Oxford University. Google, it appears, has become a pay-to-play operation, and contains a specific sociopolitical and economic agenda that is built directly into its search algorithms.

Besides Google’s shenanigans, Facebook announced in early 2019 in response to Rep. Adam Schiff that it may remove “anti-vaccine conspiracy theory” content from its platform. And then it announced that it would make alternative vaccine information harder to find, calling it “misinformation.”

But, as Sharyl Attkisson has documented, and Dr. Mercola as well,  there are many studies now which show the harm of vaccines.

It seems to me that the censorship of nutrition and alternative, non-mainstream (i.e. more honest, factual and science-based) health information has preceded this ongoing COVID-19 “crisis” for some reason.

So, I don’t know whether the bureaucrats in charge are imposing business closures and job losses, cancelling events and ball games, imposing house arrest of the masses, might be to do with an attempt to influence the 2020 Presidential election, an attempt to impose socialism, or crony relations with Big Pharma, or just a lust for power. Perhaps all of the above?

Whatever the case, the bureaucrats are sick, sick deranged psychopaths, that’s for sure. Not only are they not protecting us, they are destroying our civil liberties, our livelihoods, our health, our privacy, and our society.

Spread of Coronavirus in Italy and Italian Culture

Why are there so many deaths from coronavirus COVID-19 in Italy, even more than China? Some people are saying that it’s because there’s not enough testing in Italy. But, according to this March 18th Bloomberg article,

More than 99% of Italy’s coronavirus fatalities were people who suffered from previous medical conditions, according to a study by the country’s national health authority.

After deaths from the virus reached more than 2,500, with a 150% increase in the past week, health authorities have been combing through data to provide clues to help combat the spread of the disease.

The new study could provide insight into why Italy’s death rate, at about 8% of total infected people, is higher than in other countries.

The Rome-based institute has examined medical records of about 18% of the country’s coronavirus fatalities, finding that just three victims, or 0.8% of the total, had no previous pathology. Almost half of the victims suffered from at least three prior illnesses and about a fourth had either one or two previous conditions.

More than 75% had high blood pressure, about 35% had diabetes and a third suffered from heart disease.

The average age of those who’ve died from the virus in Italy is 79.5. As of March 17, 17 people under 50 had died from the disease. All of Italy’s victims under 40 have been males with serious existing medical conditions.

While data released Tuesday point to a slowdown in the increase of cases, with a 12.6% rise, a separate study shows Italy could be underestimating the real number of cases by testing only patients presenting symptoms.

According to the GIMBE Foundation, about 100,000 Italians have contracted the virus, daily Il Sole 24 Ore reported. That would bring back the country’s death rate closer to the global average of about 2%.

Also, a higher percentage of Italy’s elderly are smokers. And there may be another reason why there is such a higher rate of infections in Italy, the fact that Italians are more affectionate than perhaps people in other countries, with the hugging and kissing in their greetings. And apparently it’s is hard to shake that habit.

It would be quite revealing, I think, if the news reporters here in the U.S. would give some statistics as far as what percentage of those confirmed cases that are in the hospital or in ICU are smokers or ex-smokers, and what are the specific preexisting conditions that many people have who are getting seriously ill from COVID-19.

Mass Hysteria in the U.S. with COVID-19

With this COVID-19 coronavirus panic and hysteria, the real trouble is coming not from the virus itself but from the panic and hysteria, over-hyped by a very dishonest “news” media, in my opinion. It’s the first time in my 50+ years that I have seen this kind of panic and hysteria over what appears to be the same kind of illness as the flu.

But in the U.S., in which we’ve been through a Civil War and other major wars, Y2K, 9/11, not to mention the “Spanish Flu” of 1918, SARS and H1N1, with COVID-19 it is as though “We’re All Going to Die!” People are literally hysterical.

We’re talking about a mortality rate of up to 1%, people! The hysterical ones are treating something with a mortality rate of 1% as though it is Ebola that has a mortality rate of 90%!

And many of those who actually do get infected probably won’t notice it or have symptoms, and most of those who do come down with the symptoms will only experience “mild” symptoms. 99% of those who get it will NOT die.

In fact, I believe that this virus has been around in the U.S. and other parts of the world outside of China for months now, and that many people have already had the damn virus and probably assumed that what they had was just a flu or a cold. That is my theory on that.

Most of the deaths from officially-confirmed COVID-19 in the U.S. have been in Washington state, and most of them were from a single nursing home. Most of the people who are dying from this disease are in their 70s and 80s. Even in China, not one child below the age of 10 has died from this disease.

If you’re young, try not to worry. If you think you may have contracted the virus, then to protect the more vulnerable among us, just don’t go into a nursing home or hospital, and so on. Tell Grandma you’ll visit her in another month, just in case.

But with our “snowflake” culture in America now, the major sports leagues are canceling their remaining games. Concerts are being canceled, and museums are closing down. And Wall Street is crashing, and not because of the COVID-19, but because of panic and hysteria. This really sucks now.

The “news” media especially suck, because they are also sensationalizing this virus situation, and over-hyping to the point of eliciting even more panic and hysteria, so that people are rushing to their stores to clear out the shelves to get toilet paper and foods and necessities.

The public schools are closing for a few weeks or a month, and in some cases they and businesses are being like Felix Unger, “scrubbing down” and “disinfecting,” “out of an abundance of caution.”

No, out of an abundance of hysteria and irrationality!

Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade has been canceled, as it has been canceled in other cities such as New York, and the Boston Marathon has been postponed until September.

Am I the only one around here who thinks all that is overkill?

Instead, officials should warn elderly people or those who have serious illnesses to not participate in or attend those events. But canceling all these events for everybody?

And then we have Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker declaring a “State of Emergency!” As of today there are 108 “cases” (not “confirmed,” just “cases” which means they could be cases of common flu or something else) and ZERO deaths in Massachusetts.

So other power-grabbing governors are ordering the schools including private schools closed! One thing’s for sure, these politicians love power, they love ordering others around and throwing their weight around.

And this is what we have now. Irrationality. Authoritarian declarations by governors, and all the cancellations of sporting events, concerts and public gatherings, colleges and schools ordering students to leave their dorms early, completely unnecessary.

John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute recently wrote an article on how the COVID-19 overkill could be the excuse of our overlords to impose a Total Surveillance State. (This is another reason why I am a libertarian.)

According to the health officials who are not hysterical or bought and paid for by Big Pharma or who are not on a power trip, most of the people who actually get the COVID-19 virus may experience more mild than severe symptoms. Some may need to be hospitalized. If people already have respiratory issues, or smoke or live in heavily polluted areas, they are more vulnerable.

I think this is like any flu virus or cold that goes around. Chances are that most people will get this virus. They just have to be self-protective if you are among the more vulnerable, the elderly and those with serious medical conditions.

But the country is hysterical now, and it’s affecting the stock markets. And that’s a BIG problem, in my opinion. This mass hysteria is what really frightens me, not the virus itself.

What else concerns me are those people out there who are always on the lookout for someone to report on. So, watch out for all the Gladys Kravitzes out there, everyone. If you go out with a slight runny nose or happen to sneeze out in public, the health stasi may report on you. (Out of concern? No, out of ignorance and hysteria, and self-importance!)

Some More Rational Articles on COVID-19

Here are some of the more rational articles I have seen recently regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus that I thought people would find enlightening.

COVID-19 Isn’t As Deadly As We Think by Dr. Jeremy Samuel Faust (Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School)
The Misleading Arithmetic of COVID-19 Death Rates and COVID-19 deaths and incredible WHO estimates by Alan Reynolds (Cato Institute)

And here is a study that was linked from an article at libertarian website LewRockwell.com:

Study: (47%) Potential false-positive rate among the ‘asymptomatic infected individuals’ in close contacts of COVID-19 patients, from PubMed.

Wall Street Crashing Due to Irrational Coronavirus Panic and Hysteria

The totally unnecessary panic and hysteria over the coronavirus outbreak is now causing a week-long crash on Wall Street. And yes it is hysteria, because there’s no reason for it. It is irrational what’s going on now. As Bob Newhart would say, “Stop it!”

But I am somewhat suspicious of the motives of various government officials who are stirring up the unnecessary panic, as well as the “news” media. On the media’s part, many of the reporters and news anchors do not seem to have the same kind of investigative thinking skills they used to have. They seem to merely repeat whatever comes from CDC officials, without question.

And then there are some others out there who are not so ignorant, and are knowingly repeating panicky propaganda, on behalf of certain political agenda, in my opinion. We saw throughout the “Trump-Russia collusions” investigation and the Mueller report how media promoted that false narrative, which as Glenn Greenwald reported, was totally debunked by the Mueller report’s conclusions.

The latest as far as coronavirus is concerned is that a person in California has allegedly tested positive for the virus, but was not traveling to places such as China or had had any close contact with someone who had tested positive for the virus. (Although I am suspicious whether the person actually has the coronavirus.) But the “news” is reporting that this is the first known case in which the virus is beginning to spread (like in an uncontrolled way).

But, as one of my favorite blogs, Target Liberty, quotes the Washington Post, the person in question lives in an area near “Travis Air Force Base, where hundreds of Americans repatriated from China, and others brought home from the Diamond Princess Cruise ship have been kept in quarantine. Many of them have been released.” But I am not hearing ANY of the newscasters reporting this entirely relevant fact! So we DO have evidence as far as how the person in California may have gotten the virus! But the media are not reporting those aspects of the case.

Target Liberty also reports that the CDC’s director of National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the one who has been issuing very dire, hysterical warnings about the coronavirus, is the sister of Rod Rosenstein, one of the senior DOJ officials who signed fraudulent FISA applications to spy on the Trump campaign. So is Nancy as corrupt as her awful brother? Just asking.

Messonnier is also on the board of directors of “Vaccinate Your Family,” which, according to that Target Liberty post, gets some of its funding from Merck, GlaxoSmithKlein, Pfizer, and Sanofi. (So, something smells rotten in Denmark, if you ask me.)

Another issue with the hysteria is that deaths among those with the coronavirus remain at roughly 2%, which is not high. As I have already referred to here, Jon Rappoport pointed out that China has high pollution and the respiratory systems of the Chinese people are already compromised. Coronavirus affects the respiratory system in the same way that the flu does. (But there doesn’t seem to be the same kind of panic over the flu now, is there?)

By the way, Jon Rappoport’s most recent posts on coronavirus are extremely informative.

Also what’s not really being mentioned by “news” outlets are just who exactly is dying as a result of infection of coronavirus. It’s generally the same case as with the flu: elderly people and those with preexisting conditions such as diabetes or other diseases they have already been battling. Such situations weakens people’s immune systems. And also especially vulnerable are those who are smokers, boozers, drug addicts, and obese people.

But by not reiterating those important aspects of this situation, including the low rate of deaths among those testing positive for coronavirus at 2%, the “news” reporters are reinforcing the false narrative that the coronavirus is as deadly as Ebola and that everybody needs to worry, be hysterical, stay in and not go about their regular activities and PANIC!

And because of this not only is there a stock market “sell-off,” but it looks like Wall Street is continuing to tank similarly to 2008! And there’s no reason for this.

I heard a financial commentator on the radio saying that people should calm down, and don’t sell your stocks unless you need the money right now. People need to be patient.

So, are the media furthering this false narrative deliberately?

Target Liberty, by the way, also has a post on how some people who hate Donald Trump are using the coronavirus outbreak as a way to test Trump’s ability to deal with this crisis, pointing out how the “news” people of CNN in particular are either deliberately dispensing misinformation or just ignorantly getting facts wrong. (Just to be clear, I am not a Trump supporter, as I hove been supportive of the Libertarian Party, and have already mentioned here Jacob Hornberger.)

And given how much the Trump haters really do hate Trump, some of them have made it clear that they hope the economy gets bad by the election so that Trump is blamed for it and doesn’t get reelected. These are truly sick people. And some of them think that way, even though they have 401Ks and investments that are now going downhill this week because of the coronavirus hysterical sell-off.

What the media people really ought to do is continuously remind people how to better protect themselves from the coronavirus (as well as the flu or other contagious diseases), and how to defend themselves from the effects of coronavirus if they get it. Such advice would include washing your hands thoroughly and not touching your nose or face with your fingers after touching other common objects like doorknobs, and to take Vitamin D as well as Vitamin C and Zinc. And to not engage in self-destructive habits such as smoking or boozing, doing drugs, and eating badly and being obese. Also, generally keep oneself in good health to prevent diabetes and other diseases in the first place. Elderly people especially have reason to take good care of themselves, because their immune systems are weaker than younger people.

Vaccines’ Aluminum Adjuvants Can Damage the Brain

I have mentioned vaccines here, and some of the problems they can cause and why. Part of the problem is the adjuvants they contain, including aluminum. Dr. Joseph Mercola published an article on the relationship between aluminum and Alzheimer’s, as well as autism and other neurological disorders. How Aluminum Damages Your Brain. He notes how aluminum adjuvants have never been tested for safety. Can you believe that? Yet the vaccines that have aluminum are approved by the FDA. And also the CDC’s vaccine schedules for adults and children exceed safe aluminum limits.

On Trusting the Word of the “Authorities”

You would think that in today’s day and age more people would question the “wisdom” of establishment medicine and the pharmaceutical industry. But that does not seem to be the case. Many people don’t want to see the connection between pharmaceutical drugs or vaccines and illnesses or conditions. They don’t want to question the vaccines and the potential of vaccines causing some kind of neurological harm.

We don’t want to question our doctors for some reason. And when it comes to the autism phenomenon, the whole debate regarding the vaccines gets shut down by the vaccines’ defenders, criticizing the opponents as “anti-vaxxers,” and asserting that the vaccine-autism connection has been “debunked.” It’s “settled science,” and all that. Which it isn’t, “settled science.”

If you don’t look into it, as Sharyl Attkinson has done, and if you just blindly trust the medical establishment and its mainstream media spokespeople, then of course you’ll not want to hear the arguments by informed vaccine skeptics.

And regarding the vaccines, with all the adjuvants, mercury and aluminum and so on. Not only the vaccines themselves that are given to children whose brains are still in the important developmental stages, but the number of vaccines they are given, the combinations of different vaccines at the same time, and the big increase in the number of doses given to a child just in the first 5 or 6 years of life. 60 doses?

And that combined with what the medical establishment and the schools are doing to the kids now, misdiagnosing the kids with not just autism, but ADHD, ADD, even depression and anxiety, when in many cases the kids are just acting like normal kids!

So no wonder the young people now such as the ones of college age are showing a big increase in anxiety and depression, they are so easily “triggered” by the littlest thing, they need “safe spaces,” teddy bears and puppy dogs to comfort them. No wonder they are hysterical, thinking that the end is near, “the world will end in 12 years,” as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ignorantly warns.

And no wonder the college campuses are experiencing irrational protests against nothing that matters in the real world, invasions and hostage-takings of Dean’s offices, shouting down of ideological opponents, censorship and banning of speakers. What is really causing these kids to act this way, this hysterical and irrational way? (Although, it’s not just the students, the faculties of these places of “education” are also filled with irrationality.)

So, in my view, burying their heads in the sand is what the deniers of vaccine- and drug-damage do in their defense of so much propaganda by the medical establishment, government and their media stenographers.

So now as with most of the “pandemic” scares there is a race to develop and distribute a new coronavirus vaccine to the masses, regardless of whether its been tested or approved. This is all based on panic and hysteria, of course.

Jon Rappoport has some recent posts on the China “epidemic.” Here is his summary of the ongoing crisis. He appears to believe that it is extremely difficult to prove that the so-called coronoavirus outbreak was caused by a “bio-weapon” accident or intentional release, and suggests that “published genetic sequences could be con jobs, hustles, and giant errors.”

Rappoport refers to “contaminated water supplies; lack of basic sanitation; giant toxic agricultural farms; industrial poison-pollution; hunger; starvation; protein-calorie malnutrition; fertile farm land stolen from native people by corporations and governments; toxic medical drugs and vaccines; and now, in Wuhan and other Chinese cities, unprecedented mixtures of toxic air pollution, causing lung damage.” And he refers to virus “propaganda,” which would be no surprise to me.

Rappoport writes:

I raise one more question for your serious consideration. If highly toxic pollution in the air, in Chinese cities, is causing deep lung damage, and if the Chinese government is covering that up with a story about a virus—what is now happening to the millions of Chinese people locked down, with nowhere to go, trapped in those cities—breathing the air?

And in this more recent post, Rappoprt discusses how the numbers of people testing positive for the coronavirus can be greatly inflated, and that a more likely situation is people having pneumonia, especially given China’s very high pollution levels and the negative effects on the respiratory systems of many Chinese people.

But when it comes to the medical industry and its enmeshment with (and collusions with) governments, for some reason most people seem to take the word of the industry leaders and government leaders as well.

But from my own personal experiences, I have seen up close the dishonesty and corruption with doctors, as I had detailed in my post on my own medical ordeal from the late 1990s to the late 2000s. For instance, with that ulcerative colitis medical ordeal, one doctor told me to eat more “bran and whole wheat” to gain more weight, yet people with ulcerative colitis shouldn’t have such foods that are irritants to the colon. I learned the hard way. And another doctor telling me to increase the sulfasalazine anti-inflammatory drug, which, I later learned (the hard way), depletes our potassium levels as well as our folic acid. The decreased potassium level caused my blood pressure to go up, and when I then decreased the sulfasalazine the blood pressure went back down to normal. Those were just a few instances of bad advice from the “experts” with MDs.

And my now-late father, who had Alzheimer’s. He had been given Lipitor and then later on had two strokes in 2013, at which time his arterial blockage was discovered. More recently I learned that statin drugs have been shown to deplete our vitamin K2, as well as our CoQ10. Vitamin K2 is important for efficient calcium distribution. K2 makes sure that our calcium that we consume is distributed to our bones where we need it, and it prevents calcium maldistribution, making sure that our calcium does not get stored where we don’t want it — our arteries, heart, etc. If the calcium builds up in those areas, known as calcifications, then it can cause  a blockage, such as in the artery and that would prevent important nutrients from passing through the bloodstream to get to the brain effectively, which will cause cognitive problems such as with one’s memory.

So my father’s Alzheimer’s following his two strokes and his further decline for the next 6 years (that I believe was started by his statin drug Lipitor) was another learning experience in addition to my own experiences. (By the way, Joe Biden takes a statin drug. I just thought I’d throw that out there.)

Bottom line: I don’t trust the word of medical “authorities” (and certainly not government authorities!), and I check things out with my own research, on the Internet, and learn from my own experiences.

Rush Limbaugh Announces He Has Lung Cancer

I have been listening to radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh for a while now, but while I don’t agree with him on many issues, I have found him entertaining and I appreciate his sense of humor and anti-PC mindset. I try not to let his anti-immigration nationalistic mentality bother me, or his militarism over the years and his promoting the national security state, for that matter.

But now we hear that Limbaugh has advanced lung cancer, and will receive treatments. He is 69. And I wanted to write my speculation as to what possibly contributed to his lung cancer.

Well, we do know that he is constantly referring to his “formerly nicotine stained fingers” which tells me that he had smoked but quit smoking. I see online that he quit smoking cigarettes in 2010 with the help of e-cigarettes (that fascists want to ban!) but it looks like he has continued smoking those gross cigars that he loves so much.

So, smoking cigarettes and cigars are very probable contributors to his lung cancer, as I had written about regarding the late antiwar activist Justin Raimondo, who died last year at age 67. Raimondo had quit smoking after a heart attack in 2003.

And what about people who work every day for years in a radio studio? I don’t know about the health effects if any that working in a radio studio would cause, with all the electronics and possible radiation. But, there does seem to be exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF), with the computers, phone systems, digital consoles, etc. I’m certainly no expert in that field, but based on what I’ve read so far, there probably could be some sort of EMF effect when someone is working in the radio studio every day and for decades, as Rush Limbaugh has been doing. I could be way off on that, however. Such conditions could affect one’s immune system, I suppose.

Another possible contributor to Limbaugh’s lung cancer could be the lingering polluted air in New York City following the September 11th attacks in 2001. From what I see online, Limbaugh moved to Florida in 1996 and made that “official” and permanent more recently. But he has been broadcasting his radio show from his home in Florida. I don’t think he was actually physically located in NYC in 2001 where his “flagship station” at the time WABC is located, so this as a contributor has a low likelihood (unless he was working in NYC during the months following 9/11).

During the 2000s, I heard a Boston radio host Michele McPhee, who had been with the New York Daily News during the September 11th attacks, describe the air in NYC as a “thick, sticky mist,” or a “sticky, thick mist” (I know I’m close in remembering that), that lasted for months in the NYC air. No wonder first responders and others who live and work in the area have been getting involved in lawsuits. Wikipedia describes various quotes as to what was in the air: “building materials, electronic equipment, and furniture were pulverized and spread over the area,” “Burning jet fuel. Plastics, metal, fiberglass, asbestos.” Very bad.

It reminds me of hearing about the polluted air in Iraq caused by U.S. bombing campaigns in 1991 and since 2003, that caused a lot of U.S. soldiers as well as Iraqis illnesses, disabilities and early deaths.

Limbaugh has been a warmonger for decades, and he supported the 1991 Gulf War in Iraq and the second U.S. war in Iraq that started in 2003. He also had nasty things to say about those who opposed those terrible interventionist policies. And he has also supported many other destructive, just plain bad policies over the years. But I still listen to his show.

Unnecessary Panic Over the “Corona” Virus?

I wanted to address the media’s fear mongering and panic with the new “corona virus,” and China’s overdoing it with the closing down of whole cities out of hysteria and panic. But I spent more time on my previous post than I had planned. So I will make this more brief.

Over the past several years I have come to see just how the mainstream news media have become mostly repeaters of official government press releases. It’s mainly propaganda, as we have seen and continue to see with the coverage of the 2016 election-Russia investigation and this impeachment farce. The media are the same with medical issues, in their being spokespeople for the pharmaceutical companies.

So, I really want to link to Jon Rappoport’s two recent posts that address these issues, on the latest virus, the “corona” virus. Those two posts are: China virus epidemic – the Gong Show on roller skates, and on the man who mushed the SARS dud now pushing new Chinese virus. Very good information and insight, in my opinion.

He makes reference to how in the past such as with SARS the media would not disclose that many cases of “SARS” were really patients with flu-like symptoms but who did not test positive for the “SARS” virus.

Rappoport brings up how medical and government officials don’t seem to want to look at an area’s sanitation and water systems, which are very important in these issues. There are also areas of malnutrition, in which a common problem is the compromised immune systems of many in the population, in which toxic vaccines and other pharmaceutical drugs are killing them.

But, “THE VIRUS” is what needs to be obsessed with. In these “epidemics,” many of those suffering don’t actually test positive for the virus in question. They have flu-like symptoms. And one reason some of the people with the sicknesses actually die — and I did hear a newscaster mention this, I couldn’t believe a little truth was told — is because those people already had other serious medical conditions.

So, people with medical conditions should be as well-nourished as possible, for prevention.

But in China, a country with an ultra-authoritarian government that already keeps the masses in fear of the regime with the “social credit score,” etc., the government is closing down whole cities? Those rulers are even worse control freaks than the power-addicted people in Washington.
