Why wouldn’t the mainstream media just tell me what to believe already?

Birch Tree Medicine and BigPharma

Chaga is a medicinal derived from the great northern arc of birch forests, with centuries of use, allegedly anti-degenerative-disease and bing bing, anti-viral. We're unlikely to hear a word about it in the televised scuffles about which drug, cheap with decades of data, or new ones, profiteer-priced.

When the dragon disease reports reached relatives in the PNW, they sent Chaga across, before everything was shut down--roads barricaded, apartment doors welded shut, no flights from there to anywhere within the dragon. It being Lunar New Year, and traditionally the major travel time, big go-ahead was given to international destinations.

A doctor of dragon medicine in the quarantined industrial city, prescribed Chaga. His patients did not get sick, did not die, according to anecdotal report. You may note that words no longer permitted by techie arbiters of Free Speech are missing, in order to sidestep slap-down. Good thing I have sufficient vocabulary to draw on.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In these days of enforced (and soon to be very enforced vaccinations, particularly for Covid-19, in which the US military appears to be getting ready to be involved), it is comforting to know that there are still some natural resources which may be of help. I have not tried this myself, but the person who forwarded it to me has a near-encyclopedic understanding of natural ways of assisting the human immune system.

Here are some other bits of information about this, which may also be useful.

The CDC's New 'Best Estimate' Implies a COVID-19 Infection Fatality Rate Below 0.3%

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the current "best estimate" for the fatality rate among Americans with COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. The CDC also estimates that 35 percent of people infected by the COVID-19 virus never develop symptoms. Those numbers imply that the virus kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected by it—far lower than the infection fatality rates (IFRs) assumed by the alarming projections that drove the initial government response to the epidemic, including broad business closure and stay-at-home orders.

"Nothing Can Justify This Destruction Of People's Lives"

spiked: You have described the global response to coronavirus as hysteria. Can you explain that?

Yoram Lass: It is the first epidemic in history which is accompanied by another epidemic – the virus of the social networks. These new media have brainwashed entire populations. What you get is fear and anxiety, and an inability to look at real data. And therefore you have all the ingredients for monstrous hysteria.

The Convergence Of Brexit And COVID-19

Authored by Steven Guinness,

Little has been made of Brexit since the UK ceremoniously left the EU on January 31st and entered into a transition period. Amidst the coronavirus outbreak, multiple rounds of negotiations on the future trading relationship have taken place, with round three having culminated earlier this month.

In the public eye negotiations are deadlocked. Both sides are insisting that the other must change course with just six months of the transition period remaining. As part of the withdrawal agreement, Britain has the option of requesting an extension to the transition, but must do so by the end of June. Failure to do so will mean that if a new trading relationship is not ratified by the end of the year, the UK and EU will trade on World Trade Organisation terms come the start of 2021, a consequence of which will be higher tariffs.

Greece Charges Turkey With 'Land Invasion' After Troops Cross River, Raise Turkish Flag

Via AlmasdarNews.com,

The Greek government recently accused Turkey of seizing some of its territory along its eastern border.

Turkey responded on Saturday by stating that it would not allow de facto borders after Athens complained to Ankara that Turkish forces had seized land at the course of the Evros River that separates the two countries.

A statement by the Turkish Foreign Ministry said, “Ankara informed Greece that the river course has changed significantly for natural and artificial reasons, since 1926 when the borders were established, and that the solution requires technical coordination.”

The Daily Mail described of the crisis:

Turkish troops have invaded and occupied a small patch of Greek land Greece on their contested border.

Around 35 soldiers marched on to a floodplain site on the east bank of the River Evros at Melissokomeio yesterday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This justifies a meeting of the UN Security Council just as soon as they can possibly convene; the animosities between Greece and Turkey still smolder, even though there has not been a shooting war between them since the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974, when Turkey, and Turkish Cypriots, believed that a Greek coup d'etat had taken place there.

APPLE IOS 13.5 UPGRADE INCLUDES CONTACT TRACING API

SOURCE: TECHNOCRACY.NEWS
To upgrade or not to upgrade, that is the question. Fears of the worst sort are already cropping up as Apple has not made completely clear what software developers will be able to access and use the new core features that allow for Contact Tracing.

One tech journal notes,

Usage of the contact tracing API is user-optional. Additionally, exposure reports require the user to, once again, opt in to the notification, and it can only be done after the positive result is confirmed by one of the government agencies.

The first problem is that many iPhone users don’t have a clue what ‘user-optional’ means and if they do, they forget to disable the feature.

TAXPAYERS ARE ON THE HOOK FOR 98 PERCENT OF THE FED’S $6.98 TRILLION BALANCE SHEET

Why has the New York Fed run up such a monster balance sheet? It’s because the New York Fed is privately-owned by some of the largest, most dangerous banks in America which, since 2008, have been habitually propped up by cheap money from the New York Fed. Those mega banks include JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.

If the New York Fed is privately owned by the member banks in its region (as are all of the 12 regional Fed banks) and has run up a $3.9 trillion balance sheet, its share owners should be on the hook for its liabilities, correct?

This is where another of those rarely discussed structural wealth transfer mechanisms for the one percent comes in. If the Fed and its rapidly growing $6.98 trillion balance sheet blows up, the U.S. taxpayer will be on the hook for 98 percent of the losses…

Webmaster's Commentary:

TRUMP APPOINTS BIG PHARMA EXEC CONNECTED TO BILL GATES TO HEAD VACCINE DEVELOPMENTS

SOURCE: THE LAST AMERICAN VAGABOND
On Friday, Donald Trump announced his appointment of Moncef Slaoui, a former executive with vaccine manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline, to lead “Operation Warp Speed”, Trump’s plan to fast track the development of vaccines for COVID-19. Slaoui will serve in a volunteer position, assisted by Army Gen. Gustave Perna, the commander of United States Army Materiel Command.

According to the Trump administration, Operation Warp Speed program is focusing on four vaccines, with the hopes of testing and producing 100 million doses by October 2020, 200 million by December, and 300 million doses by January. At Friday’s press conference, Slaoui said he believes the goal of vaccines by January 2021 is a “credible goal”. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper was more adamant, stating that, “winning matters and we will deliver, by the end of this year, a vaccine”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) it appears that the guy who, previous to the last election swore to the American voters that he would "drain the swamp" in DC, is surfing in the wake of its pond scum.

Bill Gates has blood on his hands from previous medical trials gone horrifically south, and if President Trump is aligning with one of his minions, in this case, it doesn't at all look good for any kind of vaccine freedom whatsoever.

And there is an article from May of last year, with which you should familiarize yourself: HRSA Vaccine Compensation

The article goes on to state: "How many petitions have been awarded compensation?
According to the CDC, from 2006 to 2017 over 3.4 billion doses of covered vaccines were distributed in
the U.S. For petitions filed in this time period, 6,293 petitions were adjudicated by the Court, and of
those 4,311 were compensated. This means for every 1 million doses of vaccine that were distributed,
approximately 1 individual was compensated.
Since 1988, over 20,629 petitions have been filed with the VICP. Over that 30-year time period, 17,875
petitions have been adjudicated, with 6,551 of those determined to be compensable, while 11,324 were
dismissed. Total compensation paid over the life of the program is approximately $4.1 billion.

And remember; all the proof for these cases, rests entirely on the shoulders of the plaintiffs. $4.1 billion is a hell of a lot of money to have had to pay out on allegedly "safe" vaccines.

GUCCIFER 2.0'S HIDDEN AGENDA

SOURCE: TIM LEONARD VIA CONSORTIUM NEWS

Why would an alleged GRU officer - supposedly part of an operation to deflect Russian culpability - suggest that Assange “may be connected with Russians?”

Guccifer 2.0 fabricated evidence to claim credit for hacking the DNC, covered itself (and its files) in what were essentially a collection of “Made In Russia” labels through deliberate processes and decisions made by the persona, and, then, it attributed itself to WikiLeaks with a claim that was contradicted by subsequent communications between both parties.

Guccifer 2.0 then went on to lie about WikiLeaks, contradicted its own hacking claims to attribute itself to Seth Rich and even alleged that Julian Assange “may be connected with Russians”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact this timeline is credible, it is very obvious that one of the main targets of Guccifer 2.0's campaign was to smear both Wikileaks, and by extension, Julian Assange himself.
