NEWS ( VIRUS EDITION )
In the COVID Wars You’re Not Allowed to Pick How You Serve – “A Norwegian TV journalist penned a piece “I Would Love To Die From the AstraZeneca Vaccine“ and what seems like the entire anti-lockdown alt media has jumped on it and proclaimed it an example of the extraordinary cultism of the COVID warriors. I disagree. That’s great. Good for her. The real problem isn’t that a Norwegian lady thinks she needs to take an experimental vaccine to do her part in the COVID wars. The problem is that getting yourself injected with experimental concoctions, staying between four walls, and wearing superstitious face coverings are the only officially sanctioned (actually mandated) ways for you to supposedly serve your fellow man. If you want to help out herd immunity by getting yourself injected that is looked upon favorably. In fact, it may soon be compulsory. But if on the other hand, you do not mind risking exposure and infection for the very same herd immunity reasons then that makes you a criminal. A selfish, dangerous bioterrorist.” – Marko Marjanović
Contrary to What the Media is Telling You, Freedom Does Not Come from a Vaccine – “There is a belief forming and currently being pushed by the mainstream media and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control that Americans can have their freedom back if they just roll up their sleeves and take the vaccine. This push is being backed by multiple experts who are literally comparing it to the “carrot on a string” in order to get more people to be vaccinated” – Matt Agorist
Alarming conflicts of interest, other big red flags taint COVID vaccine approval process – “Can a COVID-19 vaccine approval process marked by such egregious and numerous conflicts of interest refrain from compromising public health and safety?” – Emily Mangiaracina
20+ Countries Suspend Use of AstraZeneca Vaccine, But Regulators Insist ‘Benefits Outweigh Risks’ – “WHO and the EMA are investigating reports of blood clot-related injuries and deaths after the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine, but both say there’s no reason to stop using the vaccines.” – Megan Redshaw
The Curious Case of Geert Vanden Bossche – “His Open Letter, Video Interview and High-Profile Supporters. This has all the hallmarks of a drug-company astroturf campaign. It’s another step in the decades-long erasure of the fact that our sophisticated and highly effective immune systems work well and don’t need any assistance from the biomedical/pharmaceutical industry. There’s abundant evidence that Vanden Bossche has a not-so-hidden agenda.” – Rosemary Frei
Study Analyzes Wireless Radiation-COVID Connection – “While the study doesn’t prove causation, it shows a preponderence of evidence that wireless radiation effects could easily be called ‘COVID.’ There is no need for a strange new virus.” – Makia Freeman
Is This Inhaler Effective for Respiratory Viruses? – “Researchers conducted a randomized trial to determine if budesonide, when used early during COVID-19 infection, would improve outcomes. Those taking budesonide recovered one day sooner than those who didn’t; persistent symptoms were also lower in the inhaler group at both 14 and 28 days compared to the usual care group.” – Dr. Joseph Mercola – BRAND NAME IS PULMICORT, ALSO AN INGREDIENT IN SYMBICORT!!!
Cannabis Inhibits SARS-CoV-2 Replication in Human Lungs, Study Suggests – “According to the researchers at the University of Chicago in Illinois, cannabidiol (CBD), a chemical in the Cannabis sativa plant, also known as marijuana, and its metabolite 7-OH-CBD, blocked SARS-CoV-22 replication in lung epithelial cells. Epithelial cells are cells that come from body surfaces, such as the skin, blood vessels, urinary tract or organs. The researchers also found that CBD appeared to inhibit viral gene expression and reverse many of the effects SARS-CoV-2 has on host gene transcription.” – Mary F.
Ticket? Passport? Add a Covid Vaccination Card to the List of Must-Have Travel Documents – “British Airways is offering to log passengers’ vaccination details to smooth international travel” – Benjamin Katz
The Beauty and Freedom That Is Anarchy – “It seems that the modern understanding of the terms “anarchy “ and “state” have been intentionally twisted around so as to be opposite of reality. In essence, the state reeks of lawlessness, chaos, and disorder, while anarchy is steeped in the concepts of freedom and liberty. This could never be more obvious than it is today.” – Gary D. Barnett – GOOD ARTICLE FROM GARY!!!
Digital Trails: How the FBI Is Identifying, Tracking and Rounding Up Dissidents – “Databit by databit, we are building our own electronic concentration camps. With every new smart piece of smart technology we acquire, every new app we download, every new photo or post we share online, we are making it that much easier for the government and its corporate partners to identify, track and eventually round us up. Saint or sinner, it doesn’t matter because we’re all being swept up into a massive digital data dragnet that does not distinguish between those who are innocent of wrongdoing, suspects, or criminals. This is what it means to live in a suspect society. The government’s efforts to round up those who took part in the Capitol riots shows exactly how vulnerable we all are to the menace of a surveillance state that aspires to a God-like awareness of our lives.” – John W. Whitehead & Nisha Whitehead
With Ratings Down, the Networks Hunt For a Trump Replacement – “Trump saved the cable news business once. Without him, things are looking bleak again. Who will news outlets find to feed the outrage machine?” – Matt Taibbi
St. Patrick’s Day: Will It Outlive Cancel Culture? – “it’s a surprise that the left hasn’t scrubbed this holiday from the calendar, because everybody likes to have fun on St. Patrick’s Day: get together with family and friends, have some drinks (the word “some” is used loosely, here), and have a good time. These are all things that humorless progressives just can’t stand because they know that miserable, isolated people are so much easier to control.” – Graham J Noble
US Intelligence Cartel: All The Governments We Hate Interfered In Our Election – “Ahem. Yeah, so, that’s the news. According to the US intelligence cartel, the nations which sought to interfere in the outcome of the US election include Russia, Iran, China, Lebanese Hizballah, Cuba, and Venezuela. Interestingly, exactly zero nations aligned geopolitically with the United States are listed as having interfered in its electoral process.” – Caitlin Johnstone
The Unholy Trinity – “The unholy trinity is the military, the police, and the Republican Party. The military is an unholy institution. But you wouldn’t know that in some churches because of all the military blasphemy and idolatry that takes place on Sundays, and especially on the Sundays before Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Veterans Day. The U. S. military is a force for evil in the world. It fights unjust and unnecessary wars. It boldly goes where it has no business going. It fights undeclared wars. It bombs, invades, and occupies countries that pose no threat to the United States. It carries out an interventionist, reckless, and belligerent U.S. foreign policy. It acts as the world’s policeman. It makes widows and orphans. It fights wars of offense instead of defense. It functions as the president’s personal attack force. It destroys foreign industry, infrastructure, and culture. It fights senseless and immoral wars.” – Laurence M. Vance
With Victoria Nuland Nomination, Biden Signals a Return to Bush-Obama-Era Foreign Policy – “Some things never change in American foreign policy. While there’s a lot of chatter about a “Great Reset” in terms of rebuilding society along technocratic lines in the wake of covid-19, US foreign policy appears to be going through its very own “reset.” Specifically, it appears to be going back to the neoliberal interventionist order of pre-Trump administrations. One of the most palpable reversions to the neoliberal mean was President Joe Biden’s nomination of Victoria Nuland to the position of under secretary of state for political affairs at the State Department in early January.” – José Niño
Biden to hold first formal news conference next week – AP – SO WHAT. IT WILL BE ALL ABOUT COVID; AND IF HE DOES ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, THEY WILL ALL BE SCRIPTED AHEAD OF TIME!!!!!
Biden’s “Burn-Rate” Rescue Act – “In the Biden era, federal competence has been defined down to mailing government checks to people who didn’t earn them to buy votes for politicians who don’t deserve them. The Rescue Act is based on blind faith in government spending – the revival of the “Magic Bean School of Political Economy.”” – James Bovard
Biden’s Migrant Blackout – “Is there something missing from press coverage of the thousands of unaccompanied children who have illegally crossed the U.S. border from Mexico and are now in the custody of the Biden administration? Yes, there is something missing — pictures. So now, the Biden White House appears to be determined not to let Americans see what is going on. The administration has not given the press access to the detention facilities. Nor has it given access to the nonprofit lawyers mentioned above, even though the administration is legally required to do so.” – Byron York

10 Cheap Yet Effective Home Security Tips – “Check out these cheap yet effective home security tips to keep your home safe and secure while making sure you have as much of your budget as possible to use for your prep” – Brian Meyer
It’s the Debt, Stupid – “The debt in the West, including Europe, is so large now it is impossible to even entertain ever paying it off. So, they aren’t even going to try. Every day that Congress passes another stimulus package or another pork-filled budget, is another day in which we reach the point where we’re issuing new debt to service the old debt. Paying our societal Visa bill with our Mastercard and hoping no one notices.” – Tom Luango – GOOD ARTICLE FROM TOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can Retail Sales Only Grow if Americans Get Permanent Stimulus Payments in this Era of Free Money? That’s the Question Now – ““Lapse” in stimulus payments, bad weather blamed for retail sales decline, as inflation on durable goods hits 3.3%. Counting on next round of free money!” – Wolf Richter
Our Dead Money Economy – “The U.S. stock and bond markets and its entire financial system now teeter on the edge of collapse if there is even a slight hint that 1) the Fed won’t give more free candy to Wall Street or 2) the Fed has lost control of the Dead Money Economy it has created.” – Charles Hugh Smith
Stocks in Bondage but Fed Not Fazed – “Powell wants to have his inflation and eat it, too. We’ll see how that works out for him, but I am certain each intervention he and his Federales make eventually requires a greater intervention of some other kind. Now the volatility in stocks is rising while the volatility in bonds has become worse and the interventions to keep all this running have become historically “gigantic,” according to a guy who has long specialized in reporting and analyzing interest rates. It looks like we are entering those times I said were coming when the plate spinner can’t keep everything spinning and up in the air.” – David Haggith
