Denmark will bar almost everyone under 50 from receiving more mRNA Covid jabs, the Danish Health Authority said yesterday.
Denmark had already ended Covid shots for nearly everyone under 18. The new rules go much further.
Danes under 50 will only be allowed to receive the shots if they are “higher risk of becoming severely [emphasis added] from Covid-19.”
The Danish Health Authority has not yet defined those groups, but they will likely include only a handful of people, such as those receiving cancer treatments that suppress their immune systems. Pregnant women are unlikely to be included.
A group of immigrants landed on the wealthy Massachusetts island of Martha's Vineyard on Wednesday, part of a campaign by Republican governors to shift the immigration burden to Democratic areas.
Florida governor Ron DeSantis took credit for the arrival of two planes of immigrants, one spokeswoman told Fox News and a second said on Twitter, though a Massachusetts state representative said immigrants had arrived from Texas.
This is the most IMPORTANT article I’ve written to date
This is the most important article on my Substack (which has over 700 articles). This one article has enough information regarding both harms and corruption that it should bring down the house of cards if there is just one honest person in a position of authority in the world.
The single most important point is this:
We now have proof of:
Serious side-effects of unknown duration, perhaps irreparable
Causality: these were not just “coincidences”
Government corruption to hide these harms
Correlation between vaccine doses and deaths from multiple independent studies on multiple independent datasets
No interest in seeing the expert report or the video from any mainstream news media, any member of the mainstream medical community, any lawmaker, any public health official anywhere in the world.
The precautionary principle of medicine now demands an immediate halt to the COVID vaccination program.
Democrat extremism in the wake of President Joe Biden’s “Dark MAGA” speech heated up some more on Wednesday when Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) issued a “call to arms” on the Senate floor while debating a national abortion ban.
“When I hear my colleagues talking about how, you know, ‘it should be state rights’ or ‘government should not be telling us what to do,’ the word ‘hypocrites,’ it doesn’t even go far enough to call them out on what they’re doing,” said Hirono.
“This is an outright attack on women in this country,” she continued. “That is how I see it. That is how more and more women and those who support our right to make decisions about our own bodies, that is how we see it. Why? Because that’s what’s happening.”
Hirono concluded her speech by saying the proposed abortion ban after 15 weeks is “literally a call to arms in our country.”

California will begin sending “inflation relief checks” to residents in October, right before Election Day, as voters are mailing in their ballots, thanks to a plan launched by Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) and agreed to earlier this year by the state’s Democrats.
As Breitbart News reported, Newsom’s plan began as a proposed rebate to help residents afford the high cost of gasoline, which is more expensive in California than in any other state thanks to taxes and regulations (which were not reformed).
Ultimately, the Democrat-dominated state legislature, which had refused to delay a rise in the gas tax, agreed to the “inflation relief checks.” Coincidentally, they will begin arriving as Newsom, who is up for reelection, will face the voters’ verdict.
SFGate.com explained the schedule for rolling out the money to middle- and low-income California households:

President Joe Biden said on Thursday that a 'tentative' deal has been reached between US freight rail companies and unions, averting a potentially devastating strike before the pivotal midterm elections.
The agreement, hashed out as a national rail strike loomed at midnight on Friday, will raise rail employees salaries 24 percent from the period from 2020 to 2024, with workers getting an average lump sum payment of $11,000 for the backdated portion of the raise, according to a group representing rail companies.
Biden called the deal 'a win for tens of thousands of rail workers who worked tirelessly through the pandemic to ensure that America's families and communities got deliveries of what have kept us going during these difficult years.'
Martha's Vineyard residents are reeling after two planeloads of migrants landed on the wealthy Massachusetts island, in a dramatic escalation of a campaign by Republican governors to shift the impact of immigration to Democratic areas.
The move by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to send roughly 50 migrants, mostly from Venezuela, to the island came as a surprise in the affluent community - where prominent liberals such as the Obamas, Oprah Winfrey and Larry David all have homes.
Following their arrival on Wednesday, the migrants stayed overnight at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Edgartown, which provided emergency shelter by clearing out the parish hall and setting up cots.
When Covid-19 struck, the governments of the world weren’t prepared.
From America to Europe to Asia, they veered from minimizing the threat to closing their borders in ill-fated attempts to quell a viral spread that soon enveloped the world. While the most powerful nations looked inward, four non-governmental global health organizations began making plans for a life-or-death struggle against a virus that would know no boundaries.
What followed was a steady, almost inexorable shift in power from the overwhelmed governments to a group of non-governmental organizations, according to a seven-month investigation by POLITICO journalists based in the U.S. and Europe and the German newspaper WELT. Armed with expertise, bolstered by contacts at the highest levels of Western nations and empowered by well-grooved relationships with drug makers, the four organizations took on roles often played by governments — but without the accountability of governments.
While nations were still debating the seriousness of the pandemic, the groups identified potential vaccine makers and targeted investments in the development of tests, treatments and shots. And they used their clout with the World Health Organization to help create an ambitious worldwide distribution plan for the dissemination of those Covid tools to needy nations, though it would ultimately fail to live up to its original promises.
For over two years, we heard a long list of murder victims shouted on TV every day. I know by heart the names and murder circumstances of Breonna Taylor, Trayvon Martin, Ahmaud Arbury, George Floyd, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, and many others.
This new trend is a little different. In fact, I couldn’t help noticing that some particularly gruesome recent killings have been met with a strangely subdued reaction by the mainstream media. Which is weird, because silence is violence.
Crime itself is nothing new. Like many of you, I’ve already been a victim of lots of crimes. Multiple cars broken into overnight, wallets pickpocketed at bars, that sort of thing.
I have also been the victim of a few much scarier crimes. Once, I was robbed at gunpoint. I was alone, walking home just after dusk on a prestigious East Coast college campus. The robber demanded my wallet as he jabbed his handgun into me. He snatched the $20 I gave him and ran away.
Last year, I arrived at a public park to retrieve one of my children from sports practice. As I pulled into the lot, I noticed a group of men hanging around a parked car. My inner systemic racist noticed that they were young, black, dressed like gangbangers, and smoking weed. My inner white privilege told me I should find a different place to park, immediately.
But I convinced myself that there was no way anything bad could happen here, in full daylight, in view of a playground full of kids, so I dismissed my inner “racist” and pulled into the lot.
I called my husband and told him, “I think I just interrupted a gang meetup. These guys look like they have guns.”
He told me to ignore my inner racist. “It’s broad daylight, you’ll be fine.”
Thirty seconds after hanging up with him, I heard the unmistakable sound of gunfire close by. At first I thought I was dreaming. How could my inner racist have been so right? And then I thought, oh no, I was correct in my assumption that these guys were sketchy, and now I’m going to die a “racist.”
They claim to be “defending democracy,” but not one of the Democratic Party candidates for statewide office in California has agreed to debate his or her opponent, rejecting what many voters see as a key part of the democratic process.
Webmaster addition: Why bother with a debate when you plan to rig the actual election?
The brilliant Julie Kelly has a great essay summarizing the Biden administration’s accelerating persecution and prosecution of Republicans who dared question a bizarre presidential election that broke with all norms going back more than two centuries. Kelly believes, as I do, that this is going to end with Donald Trump’s indictment. My guess is the indictment will take place before the election because Democrats want to trigger a violent response that will justify halting the elections and, possibly, imposing some form of martial law. I can’t believe I’m writing that, but all the indications are there.
As I said, you should definitely read Kelly’s “The Regime’s ‘Operation MAGA Fascist’ Gains Ground,” because it perfectly summarizes how Democrats have spent two years escalating words and actions against Trump supporters and other Republicans. Kelly has been on this issue like a hungry dog on a juicy bone, so her summation is going to be one of the best you’ll see. I want to focus, however, on where she sees this escalation heading in the coming weeks:
But the MOAB in Operation MAGA Fascist will detonate after a D.C. grand jury, working in secret with Biden’s Justice Department, hands down a criminal indictment against Donald Trump. It isn’t a question of if that will happen, but when. Will Democrats drop the bomb before Election Day or after? How long can they drag out the dramatics before their own base turns on them?
During 2021, according to Table R-1 in the BLS’ Consumer Expenditure Survey, American “consumer units” spent an average of $15,495.28 on food, clothing and health care combined, while paying an average of $16,729.73 in total taxes to federal, state and local governments.

On Tuesday, the military forces of Azerbaijan shelled territory in neighboring Armenia. “The hostilities erupted minutes after midnight, with Azerbaijani forces unleashing an artillery barrage and drone attacks in many sections of Armenian territory, according to the Armenian Defense Ministry,” reports to the Associated Press. The premier corporate propaganda outfit cited serious damage to “civilian infrastructure and also wounded an unspecified number of people,” including 49 Armenian soldiers (later updated to 99 soldiers).
“There are reports of dead and wounded among civilians and military servicemen,” said Hikmet Hajiyev, a spokesman for the Azerbaijani presidency.
The latest clash between the two rivals follows the decades-old conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh, yet again another instance of violence over ethnicity and culture. According to the “international community” (those onboard with the neoliberal agenda dictated by the US), the region is recognized as part of Azerbaijan.
The Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Oblast has a population of 192,000, 76% Armenian and 23% Azerbaijani. There are Russian and Kurdish minorities.
The 1988-1994 war prompted the Russian Federation sent peacekeepers to the disputed separatist region.

According to the latest consumer spending data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Americans spent more money on taxes last year than on food, healthcare, education, and clothing COMBINED.
President Joe Biden jokingly offered onlookers a ride back from the Detroit Auto Show to Washington, DC, in an electric vehicle on Tuesday — the high-end Cadillac Lyriq, which retails above $61,795 for the 2023 model year.
In a video obtained by Breitbart News, Biden is seen driving slowly across the carpet inside the Cadillac in a convention hall before calling out: “Anyone want a ride to Washington?”
That ride would take longer than a drive in a conventional, gas-powered vehicle — and might not save more than a few dollars. Earlier this year, after Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) boasted of driving her electric Chevy Bolt from Michigan to Washington, DC, Henry Payne of the Detroit Free Press did the calculations:
Over the course of her journey, ABRP [the A Better Route Planner app] calculates that the Bolt EUV used almost 200 kWh of energy at a cost of $80. Electrify America charging rates across Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania are a uniform 43 cents per kWh (like gas stations, EA also has discount rates with member programs, and some manufacturers are offering free charging with purchase of an EV).
That compares to $88 if she had driven a comparable, gas-powered Trailblazer SUV, which gets 33 mpg on the highway. That’s a savings of $8 for the 600-mile trip at $5-a-gallon gas.
That savings comes at a price in time. Stabenow’s charging stops added nearly three hours to the 9 hour, 30-minute Lansing-to-D.C. road trip (13 hours, 9 minutes total) compared to a single, 5-minute stop in the Trailblazer to fill up. There are other variables as well, depending on which app you use to plan your trip.
As government officials and mainstream media urges the vaccinated to inject a second so-called “bivalent” booster said to be targeting the Omicron variant, it turns out that this substance hasn’t been tested on humans. And the only animal trial that has been performed included eight mice.
“It hasn’t been proven in a clinical trial, because we don’t have time to do a clinical trial because we need to get the vaccine out now because we have such a situation throughout the world and certainly in the United States, we’re having 400 deaths per day and up to 5,000 hospitalizations a day,” NIAID Dr Anthony Fauci explained in an interview.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky has also stated that the boosters must be expedited in order to work properly. A delay would potentially render the shots “outdated” as new variants would form, Walensky argues.
STUDY: WORSE THAN THE VIRUS
A new study conducted by scientists from Harvard and Johns Hopkins, currently in pre-print, reveals that the COVID-19 vaccines were up to 98 times worse than the virus itself. The study is critical of the booster requirement for American university students, stating in the abstract: “Using CDC and sponsor-reported adverse event data, we find that booster mandates may cause a net expected harm: per COVID-19 hospitalisation prevented in previously uninfected young adults, we anticipate 18 to 98 serious adverse events, including 1.7 to 3.0 booster-associated myocarditis cases in males, and 1,373 to 3,234 cases of grade ≥3 reactogenicity which interferes with daily activities.”
A new report by top medical journal the Lancet says it’s “feasible” that the COVID-19 virus actually originated from a laboratory in the United States.
Up until this point, much of the speculation around the origin of the pandemic has centered on the Wuhan lab in China.
However, the new paper suggests that Sars-Cov-2 could have leaked from a US lab as a result of either a natural spillover or a laboratory incident.
The report states that “independent researchers have not yet investigated” US labs, and that the National Institutes of Health has “resisted disclosing details” of its work.
Despite the evidence presented in the research paper, the Lancet is still facing a backlash over its refusal to take action against economist Prof Jeffrey Sachs, who was involved in research for the publication.
For those who have been paying attention to international affairs, the following will come as no surprise. For others, cheering for "Team Ukraine" however, the following should be a gigantic wake-up call. It isn't just Russia handling Ukraine . . . it's China too.
Li Zhanshu is the head of China’s legislature: the Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress. He’s Number 3 in the rigid hierarchy of the CPC. A VERY big fish.
So where was Mr. Li last week?
Well, at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, Russia. He met and talked with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Li also had a key meeting with Russian State Duma (The Russia Legislature) Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin - and other Duma leaders.
A ceasefire was holding Thursday on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, Yerevan said, after the worst clashes since 2020 killed dozens of troops and jeopardised a fledgling peace process.
The clashes that erupted on Tuesday ended "thanks to the international involvement" overnight on Thursday, Armenia's security council said, after earlier failed attempts from Russia to broker a truce.
Baku and Yerevan have traded accusations of initiating the violence along their shared border, which saw 105 Armenian troops and 50 Azerbaijani servicemen killed and hundreds of Armenian civilians flee their homes near the frontier.
A delegation of the Collective Security Treaty Organization -- a Moscow-led grouping of several ex-Soviet republics -- is due in Yerevan later Thursday, Armenia's foreign ministry said.

4: Twitter employees can tweet from any Twitter account
Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), running against Republican J.D. Vance for Ohio’s open United States Senate seat, has gone silent after saying “Democrats, Republicans, and Independents” must “kill and confront” former President Trump’s Make America Great Again (MAGA) populist-nationalist movement.
On Tuesday, Ryan called for voters to “kill and confront” the MAGA movement even as more than 3.1 million Ohioans voted for Trump in the 2020 election and more than 2.8 million voted for him in the 2016 election.
“How do we fix all of these broken systems? Some of those answers will come from Republicans, not the extremists that we are dealing with every single day. We’ve got to kill and confront that movement, but working with normal mainstream Republicans, that’s going to be really, really important,” Ryan said on MSNBC.
“I’m saying exhausted majority — Democrats, Republicans, Independents against the extremists, leading an era of reform around reconciliation so we can heal this country and move into the future,” he continued.
Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Bill Hagerty (R-TN) say President Joe Biden can help reduce violent crime across the United States by initiating a federal effort to deport all illegal aliens convicted of crimes.
On Wednesday, Blackburn and Hagerty sent Biden a letter urging him to deploy wartime federal resources to major American cities to assist with an ongoing violent crime wave.
A critical component that Biden can take executively, Blackburn and Hagerty wrote, is carrying out a large-scale effort to deport all illegal aliens convicted of crimes who continue living in the U.S.
According to a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Medicine, acute corneal allografts are being rejected by immunized patients who've undergone the procedure. Researchers say the underlying cause could be tied to a systemic inflammatory response elicited by the shot post-jab.
The cornea is the outermost layer of a person’s eye. Corneal grafts are used to restore a damaged cornea. The surgery is known to be one of the most successful organ transplant procedures with low rejection rates. It restores vision, reduces eye pain and improves the appearance of the diseased cornea.
Japanese researchers compiled data from 23 studies. A total of 23 eyes from 21 patients who had undergone corneal graft procedures were assessed. Graft rejection occurred anywhere from one day to six weeks after vaccination in all patients–some who underwent the procedure as far back as twenty years ago.
Israeli health researcher and health journalist Dr. Yaffa Shir-Raz has released shocking new information about her findings and exposed Israel’s cover-ups in reporting the adverse events related to Covid-19 vaccinations.
The Israeli Ministry of Health (MoH) discovered major safety issues with the COVID vaccines and hid the information from the public intentionally. MoH distorted the findings of the expert.
Earlier this month, Dr. Yaffa took to Twitter to expose a leaked video where Prof. Mati Berkowitz, a pediatric specialist, head of Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology unit at Shamir Medical Center, and head of the research team appointed by the Israeli Ministry of Health (IMOH) to examine the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine, caught lying and manipulating an expert report on adverse events.
Ukraine's western government creditors concluded on Wednesday a memorandum of understanding on a planned debt service suspension, the group said.
The group, which includes Canada, France, Germany, Japan, United Kingdom and the United States, said in July that they would provide a coordinated suspension of Kyiv's debt servicing to the end of 2023 and potentially for an additional year.
"This MoU eases Ukraine's liquidity pressures and allows its government to increase social, health and economic spending in response to Russia's unjustified, unprovoked and illegal war of aggression," the group said in a statement issued by France's finance ministry.
The group called on other official bilateral creditors to also quickly reach a debt service suspension deal with Ukraine.
