If you find yourself confused about the mixed guidance when it comes to Covid-19 vaccines and safety concerns, you’re not alone.
While the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is marketing widespread use of the vaccines in the U.S. for both old and young alike; many other countries have limited Covid-19 vaccine use under certain conditions. Health officials around the world are giving varying advice on safety issues as Covid-19 vaccines are given to more people, and more information is collected.
Below are summaries of some of the concerns that have emerged or been raised by medical officials.
The rushed “warp speed” development and approval of completely novel Covid-19 mRNA and DNA vaccines pushed on millions of people has resulted today in millions of reported injuries and deaths according to public health databases such as VAERS (US), Eduravigilance (EU), Yellow Card (UK) and others. In March 2022 a package of 466 pages of Pfizer non-clinical submission (animal studies) to the FDA was obtained by Judicial Watch via FOIA. This article is an updated version of my previously published review of these documents. The cursory nature of the entire preclinical program for mRNA injections conducted by Pfizer can be briefly summarized as “we did not find any safety signals because we did not look for them”. The omissions of standard safety studies and glaring scientific dishonesty in the studies that were performed are so obvious that they cannot be attributed to the incompetence of the manufacturers and regulators. Rather, the questions of fraud and willful negligence should be raised.
The focus of my review was the scope and adequacy of the program of non-clinical assessment for a novel gene therapy “vaccine” with a brief discussion of relevant regulatory frameworks. I did not dive deeply into the results of specific animal studies. My goal is to illustrate the complete breakdown of the previously known to be rigorous ethical drug development process, as well as the shocking negligence on the part of the regulatory agencies that are supposed to keep the pharmaceutical manufacturers honest. It turns out that both the regulators and the manufacturers were highly dishonest and pushed an entirely novel technology and product on millions of people without a single well designed toxicology assessment.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the outgoing top medical adviser and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is under fire by social media users for being obsessed with himself.
Fauci sat down for an interview with the New York Times on his last day in office, which was December 30. The opening sentence of the article read, “The walls in Dr. Anthony S. Fauci’s home office are adorned with portraits of him, drawn and painted by some of his many fans.” The author of the Times article observed that “Dr. Fauci seemed a little uncomfortable with people knowing about the pictures.”
“He said that previously, when they were captured on camera, the ‘far right’ attacked him as an ‘egomaniac,’” Sheryl Gay Stolberg wrote. “If someone goes to the trouble of sending him a portrait of himself, he said, he would ‘feel like I’m disrespecting them’ if he discarded it.”
The Department of Education’s (DOE) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) launched an investigation into race-based groups at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF), according to medical watchdog group Do No Harm.
Winter storm warnings have been issued from the Rockies to the Great Lakes to cover for the heavy snow and ice expected with this storm.
A storm that crashed onshore in California with flooding rain and mountain snow at the beginning of the weekend tracked over the Four Corners region on Sunday before beginning a northeastward track across the nation’s midsection on Monday.
“As mild, moist air is catapulted into the Southern and Central states early in the week and results in soaking rain and severe weather, the back side of the storm will have cold and snowy conditions filtering into the northern Plains and east of the Rockies,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Nicole LoBiondo said.
Despite the worst conditions expected to only encompass a rather compact zone, AccuWeather experts say that travel both on the road and in the air will once again be significantly impacted by this system from Monday to Tuesday.
Within the corridor of heaviest snow, a swath of 6-12 inches is likely from portions of South Dakota and Nebraska to Minnesota and Wisconsin. A smaller area, extending from northwest Nebraska to southwest Minnesota, is more likely to see over a foot of snow.
In a letter leaked to Politico by the White House Thursday, President Joe Biden’s Special Counsel Richard Sauber told Republican Congressmen James Comer, incoming Chair of the House Oversight Committee, and future Chair of the Judiciary Committee Jim Jordan the administration has “no immediate plans” to respond to the multitude of records requests sent by the both of them for upcoming investigations.
In his letters published by Politico, allegedly without reaching out to the Republicans for comment per the House Judiciary GOP, Sauber claimed that the requests were constitutionally illegitimate under the justification that the 118th GOP-led House Of Representatives has not yet entered session.
Conservatives are learning the wrong lesson from the Twitter Files. They look at their record of government collusion and censorship—always helping the left and hurting the right—and conclude that the problem with the country’s tech giants, including Twitter before Elon Musk’s purchase, is that they exclusively employ ideologues committed to weaponizing the tools at their disposal for political gain.
Of 23 major financial institutions that work directly with the Federal Reserve, 16 anticipate a recession within the next 12 months, with two anticipating one the year after, according to a survey published by The Wall Street Journal Monday.
About half of European Union member countries ban cross-sex surgeries for minors, and Finland, Sweden and the U.K. have taken decisive steps back from childhood gender transitions amid growing concern about the procedures’ safety and effectiveness.
Police and fire departments responded to a stabbing at around 7:50 a.m. local time at a residence in Richland Hills, Texas, according to an official release from the Richland Hills Police Department. Emergency services arrived on the scene and pronounced that the juvenile victim was dead from his injuries.
Distrust in the justice system over its refusal to stop voter disenfranchisement is spiraling after Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson dismissedKari Lake’s lawsuit challenging the results of Arizona’s botched midterm election, where Democrat Katie Hobbs was declared the winner. Hobbs was losing in almost every MSM poll and didn’t bother to debate Lake, prompting one of the most prominent progressive journalists in the state to denounce her hiding in her basement as “political malpractice.” Hobbs was such an unremarkable candidate that she has only 177k Twitter followers to Lake’s 834k followers, over 400% fewer.
The Republican Party has a 4% voter registration over Democrats in both Maricopa County and statewide. Despite this, 14% of voters supposedly flipped to oppose Arizona’s top Trump candidates. Just like how no one believed Donald Trump lost the state in 2020 when he led Joe Biden three or four points going into the election, no one believes Hobbs won. This is why instead of being happy and gloating at their win, the left is reacting with a bizarre level of intense anger towards the right.
Lake’s team discovered that over 298,942 ballots delivered to third-party signature verification service Runbeck Election Services on Election Day had no chain of custody, and provided this evidence to Thompson. A Runbeck employee stated there were at least 9,530 duplicate ballots printed and issued with no chain of custody. And two days after the election, 25,000 more ballots were found which lacked a chain of custody, totaling over 333,472 ballots. Under Arizona law here and here, every one of those constitutes a class 2 misdemeanor.
This doesn’t even include all the “Door 3” ballots that were commingled with counted ballots at the vote centers plagued with printing problems; it is unknown how many of them have botched chains of custody.
A key federal agency worked with gun control advocates to bury a study that showed law-abiding firearms owners use them to protect themselves millions of times per year, according to a report.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) deleted a reference to the study, which it had commissioned, after gun-control advocates said it made passing new gun laws more difficult. The pro-Second Amendment site The Reload reported that the White House and powerful Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin helped arrange a series of meetings at which the gun control advocates convinced the agency to hide the study.
“[T]hat 2.5 Million number needs to be killed, buried, dug up, killed again and buried again,” Mark Bryant, head of the Gun Violence Archive, wrote to CDC officials after a meeting. “It is highly misleading, is used out of context and I honestly believe it has zero value – even as an outlier point in honest DGU discussions.”
A powerful storm that battered California with widespread flooding and heavy snowfall is now heading east into the Central United States.
The storm pummeled northern California over the weekend, stalling traffic and prompting water rescues and evacuation orders - and 15 million people are now under winter weather alerts.
At least three people have died from the treacherous conditions, including one person found dead inside a completely submerged car Saturday in Sacramento County and a 72-year-old man who died after being struck by a fallen tree at a Santa Cruz park.
The word “Russophobia” has been used very widely in the past couple of years by Russians and by “friends of Russia” abroad to describe the campaign of vilification of President Putin in particular and of the Russian people more generally that the U.S. led West has practiced with rising volume and shrillness ever since the start of an Information War launched in 2007.
In the course of the “Special Military Operation,” the Kiev regime has taken the lead in disseminating vicious calumny about the Russian military. We have heard about “massacres of civilians” in Bucha by retreating Russians. We have heard about Putin dispensing Viagra to his soldiers so that they might carry out sexual violence against Ukrainian women in occupied areas under their control. These and similar allegations have been repeated endlessly in Western media as if they were proven facts. They were not and are not anything more than bare-faced lies. The image of savage Buryat and Chechen units within the Russian armed forces has been so widespread that even Pope Francis spoke publicly against these peoples from the Vatican. The apologies later extended by his Secretariat were made privately to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, so the damage of this calumny will not be undone.
I suggest that we consider the Russophobia as just a new manifestation of an old trick of those preparing the public for war and managing popular emotions in a jingoist direction. It is all about dehumanizing one’s opponents to make killing more acceptable than Scripture and the basic disposition of civil society would allow.
News about the impending removal of foreign forces from Syria that you will not get…from Western mainstream
Happy New Year 2023 to one and all. With some luck we may all make it through the next 12 months intact.
My purpose in violating the sanctity of New Year’s Day is to bring to your attention news from the Middle East that has been posted by an authoritative newspaper from the region, Al-Watan, of Doha, Qatar, but seems not to have been picked up by mainstream Western media. My knowledge of it came from the so-called Free Press (Свободная Пресса) portal in Russia. I’d have learned about it sooner from the much better known RIA Novosti news agency, which also carried a lead story on the subject, but, sadly, RIA Novosti is banned in the European Union. Brussels obviously prefers for ours to be the Dark Continent where public opinion is manipulated from the offices of the Commission.
The news in question is about the announced results of negotiations held in Moscow two days ago between representatives of Russia, Syria and Turkey. That such a three-way meeting was possible was due to the recent decision of Turkish President Erdogan to finally recognize the legitimacy of the Bashar Assad government in Damascus. In this connection, it has also been reported in Russian media that a face to face meeting of Erdogan and Assad is expected to take place in the second half of 2023.
The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, sitting en banc (all judges on the court) has upheld Florida’s St. John’a County school policy of separating bathrooms based on biological sex, rejecting a challenge by a “transgender male” who was denied the opportunity to use the boy’s bathroom. The district provided sex-based (boys and girls) bathrooms as well as single-user gender neutral bathrooms.
While the headlines about the decision refer to a “transgender bathroom policy,” in fact it’s much simpler than that, what the court referred to as the “nearly universal practice of separating school bathrooms based on biological sex.”
Various states weighed in for and against the policy:
