COVID-19: November 25-December 30, 2021.

Yeah, I’m rather bored of all this synthetic hysteria.

But Our Loving Masters aren’t.

From Jordan Schachtel,
New variant hysteria comes from same institution that popularized lockdowns & previous COVID scares

—<Quote begins>—

Similar to every other government-prescribed policy to fight a war on a virus, travel bans do not actually work to stop a virus, but they do successfully agitate the markets and masses into bouts of madness.

[Just Say No to COVID Travel Bans]

And it is not a coincidence that the U.K. is again the first mover on the “Nu strain” front.

The new variant hysteria originated at Imperial College UK, the home of a disgraced, corrupted academic modeling institution that proselytized lockdowns to the Western world. Throughout COVID Mania, Imperial has been the source of countless versions of “new strain” propaganda. The institution does not only participate in shoddy modeling. It both foments the insanity and demands a series of totalitarian measures to deal with their faulty narrative creations.

The new variant scare campaign originated earlier this week with a Twitter thread from Tom Peacock, a postdoc in his early 30s who is employed at Imperial College London. He set the gears in motion through his alarmist interpretation of the variant, describing the new strain as having a “really awful Spike mutation profile.” 

[…]

The corporate media, world governments, and other institutions have regurgitated Peacock’s pandemic proclamations, setting off a new series of authoritarian demands from the ruling class.

The current new strain panic comes at a time in Europe when COVID-19 cases are surging in the continent, despite the universal embrace of mRNA injections that were promised to resolve the COVID-19 problem.

This “new strain” has reportedly been found in Europe, driving the media’s narrative even further into the totalitarian abyss.

[…]

With claims disseminated to the masses by Big Tech and world governments, the Gates Inc and China-influenced World Health Organization is sowing maximum panic and terror.

[…]

Outside of the Chinese Communist Party, no other institution has been as influential in driving destructive COVID-19 policies than Imperial College London.

Imperial College UK is the home of the infamous “doomsday models” for COVID-19, which promised that millions of people would imminently be wiped off the earth if the Western world did not lock down in March of 2020 for COVID-19. The idea that the world needed to “flatten the curve” through pseudoscientific lockdowns was spawned by a faulty academic model from Neil Ferguson, an epidemiologist at Imperial College. When pressed to open source his models, Ferguson outright refused. He later resigned in disgrace from the U.K. government scientific advisory board. Yet “Professor Lockdown” somehow remains a very influential figure in driving Britain’s totalitarian pandemic response policies.

[…]

On the topic of new strains, it seems everything old is new again. Imperial was the primary source of the new variant scare models of 2020. It was around this time last year when U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, citing Imperial speculation on a different strain, initiated a Winter lockdown.

[…]

Read my piece in the Dossier about that “new strain” of 2020 and you will see the incredible parallels. The South Africa/Botswana “Nu strain” propaganda relies on the same fear campaign, but a rebranded version. It’s the exact same playbook.

Last year, it commenced with Erik Volz, an epidemiologist at Imperial College London, who claimed the new strain was 70% more transmissible. His exact language was later repeated by PM Johnson in justifying his lockdown.

[…]

Takeaways:

  • Imperial College should be shut down as a bunch of power-hungry, lying quacks.
  • Unfortunately, today’s political environment — especially unelected bureaucrats — is all about insuring powerful people don’t face consequences.
  • Let’s see how long it takes for the population to decide to change that.
  • Some leadership from Christians could be rather helpful here.

Don’t take the ‘new strain’ Omicron bait

—<Quote Begins>—

We’ve seen this movie before.

Since early 2020, the “new, dangerous, unprecedented COVID strain” playbook has remained the same. It’s now been almost two years since the first “new strain” came on the scene.

Here’s how the hype cycle works

[…]

A random nation-state detects a new coronavirus strain. That information is then introduced to the public by the press through hysterical means, setting off a chaotic few days in global financial markets, and a frenzied churnalism race to get the most eyes locked in on their respective publications. “Is a new plague on the horizon?” the ruling class sycophants ask. Academics in credentialed organizations will present a baseless statistical model or two that are totally detached from reality, igniting more government and press hysteria over the coming “plague.”

[…]

Next, your local and federal power-drunk politicians comes to the “rescue,” reminding you plebs that they’re here to help! The government first signals that there is nothing major to worry about, at least, for now. They’ll let you know if something changes, and assure you that their best people are monitoring the situation.

Initial government “measures” are restored. This is the first step in the direction of COVID tyranny. It comes in the form of nonsensical edicts like directed travel bans to the region where the new strain surfaced.

[…]

The ruling elite will then tell you to start acting like the good cattle that you are. Based on the advice of their “expert” Government Health bureaucrats, if you remain well behaved and extra compliant, COVID won’t come to get you. The Faucists will remind you to “trust the science” of masks and other forms of submissive virtue signaling, and ask you to thank the “public health experts” who are working day and night to protect you. You need government. No one is safe without the CDC and FDA. No one. The bureaucrats are the science and they know best. Questioning them is akin to questioning the concept of science itself.

[…]

As the new strain becomes more dominant and envelops more PCR tests, suddenly, the new strain is no longer mild. It’s the plague! Worse than ever! Government must now spring into action with “measures” (lockdowns, business closures, curfews and the like) that will further steal your basic rights and liberties.

[…]

The “war on the virus” is now in full bloom, and you better take a side, because you don’t want to be “on the side of the virus.” The new strain is the biggest threat yet. Worse than all the other new strains that caused the “plague of the century.” Academics and Government Health bureaucrats will show you another model or two to hammer home this point.

[…]

They insist that all of the things that didn’t work to stop a virus last time must be employed to stop a virus this time. And the more compliance, the better. Four shots, not three. Three masks, not two. Quarantine camps not only for the infected, but for close contacts too. The government will insist on quadrupling down on “the measures” as the only way forward, because this strain is the worst of them all.

[…]

The cycle repeats itself every time there is a new variant. And regardless of whether it’s the Alpha variant or any of a possible 100,000 mutations to the coronavirus, every tyrannical measure taken by governments to “slow the spread” or “stop the virus” has only made overall health significantly worse. As evidenced by the last two years, the government can only cause harm in embracing authoritarian coronavirus policies. Omicron is just their latest excuse. Don’t buy into the new variant hype. Don’t take the bait this time.

Takeaways:

Politicians don’t see the light, until they feel the heat.

No heat? No change.

(And yes, this is all about politicians. Not doctors or researchers or evidence. Actual science and measurable results is not the point here. The point is exercising Power over the Inferiors for Their Own Good… that’s all.)

The Dreaded New Variant

—<Quote begins>—

Here we are nearly two years into this.

Some thought: the vaccines will help, because at the very least they’ll calm the fears of the most irrational.

Instead, the vaccines have been used as a weapon to punish, demonize, and even dehumanize dissidents.

And now a new “variant of concern” is here, and plenty of countries that we were solemnly told had “followed the science,” and if only Americans had listened to them we’d be doing, better, etc., are now headed back into lockdown and the adoption of vaccine passports.

(So far, by the way, the numbers for societies with vaccine passports have generally worsened, not improved, but that must be because they haven’t vaccine passported hard enough!)

The South African doctor who first identified the variant reported that there are so far no known deaths from it, and that symptoms have been mild to moderate.

But the hysteria went into overdrive anyway.

—<Quote ends>—

It’s not about the people’s health.

It’s about the Health of the State: war.

True: Our Betters would be happier with old-fashioned wars. But nuclear weapons put an end to this, when it comes to conflicts among great powers.

So instead comes this kabuki play, this fake, ritualist war against a flu, fought in a way which is guaranteed to bring minimal pain to the politicians, and maximum pain to the population.

SACRIFICE! SACRIFICE!

cries the state medical establishment, today’s white-smocked government priest… a strictly secular priesthood, serving the Great God Power.

(But, like their discredited religious “accredited professionals”, fuelled by the fear of death, and of judgement.)

Christians who do not fear physical death, and do not thirst for or worship power over others, are expected to go down another road.

Regardless of the yelling of incompetent and destructive “Public Health Professionals”.

The Priesthood of All Believers is the real deal.

Not the manic thrashing of some select elite guild of failures, religious or secular.

Whatever you do, do not look at this chart, citizen

—<Quote begins>—

Today’s chart comes from compliant Vermont.

In Vermont, 99 percent of seniors are fully vaccinated, and 62 percent have had a booster shot. Yet the state is experiencing record hospitalizations (the orange line shows vaccination rate and the blue line tracks the percentage with boosters):

Now I realize that the true believers probably have a list of excuses for this chart.

But let’s be serious, for heaven’s sake. Can they seriously say they expected to see, once mass vaccination occurred, a chart that looks like this?

If they’re being honest, they’ll admit this isn’t how it was supposed to be at all.

Ian Miller, the creator of the chart, includes the moment when Dr. Fauci said that at 50 percent vaccination he felt fairly certain that we wouldn’t see the surges of the past.

In all his various interactions with the press since, how many times has he been asked why he thinks he was wrong about that?

(That’s a rhetorical question.)

At the moment, however, people’s attention has been focused on the “Omicron variant.” 

Eli Klein, a lifelong Democrat who runs an art gallery in New York City where he says he will never inquire about anyone’s vaccination status, put it this way:

“New variant panic is wild. Just accept minuscule extra risks in life and move on. Let’s stop destroying the world in a largely futile attempt to avoid just one disease that isn’t going away and most people have immunity to.”

Whenever I write or quote something like that, I get people telling me, “This isn’t about a virus! It’s about control!”

Be that as it may, your friends certainly think it’s about a virus.

And even now, some of your less ideological friends are still reachable.

Last night the first episode of COVID Revealed was released. If you watched it, all I can say is: I told you it was going to be good.

The interview with me hasn’t run yet, so you haven’t missed it.

But because of all the Omicron talk, they’re actually extending the window within which you can sign up to watch the series for free. (They’ve never done this before, as I know from promoting some of their other documentaries.)

Here’s how to start watching, and share the information with your friends:

This part is worth noting:

Whenever I write or quote something like that, I get people telling me, “This isn’t about a virus! It’s about control!”

Be that as it may, your friends certainly think it’s about a virus.

So long as the majority of the population in the West believe that these lockdowns are actual, scientifically grounded health measures by truly thoughtful, caring authorities– snort — then for just that long will the lockdowns continue.

That’s just how it is.

People make their own chains, and then gladly wear them.

Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur, a Latin phrase, means “The world wants to be deceived, so let it be deceived.”

Wikipedia, Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur

Christians should recognize the truth of the first half of this statement.

We are not permitted to let the second half stand.

In the year of Uzziah’s death, the Lord commissioned the prophet to go out and warn the people of the wrath to come. “Tell them what a worthless lot they are.” He said, “Tell them what is wrong, and why and what is going to happen unless they have a change of heart and straighten up. Don’t mince matters. Make it clear that they are positively down to their last chance. Give it to them good and strong and keep on giving it to them. I suppose perhaps I ought to tell you,” He added, “that it won’t do any good. The official class and their intelligentsia will turn up their noses at you and the masses will not even listen. They will all keep on in their own ways until they carry everything down to destruction, and you will probably be lucky if you get out with your life.”

Isaiah had been very willing to take on the job — in fact, he had asked for it — but the prospect put a new face on the situation. It raised the obvious question: Why, if all that were so — if the enterprise were to be a failure from the start — was there any sense in starting it? “Ah,” the Lord said, “you do not get the point. There is a Remnant there that you know nothing about. They are obscure, unorganized, inarticulate, each one rubbing along as best he can. They need to be encouraged and braced up because when everything has gone completely to the dogs, they are the ones who will come back and build up a new society; and meanwhile, your preaching will reassure them and keep them hanging on. Your job is to take care of the Remnant, so be off now and set about it.”

Isaiah’s Job
Albert J. Nock

We have a job to do: not so much for the current generation to learn from, but for future generations – Christians especially, but also any pagan that cares for the truth.

Best get to work.

From Jordan Schachtel
Stats trick: How Omicron can transition from ‘mild’ to ‘deadly’

—<Quote begins>—

Before we get to Omicron, there’s two important things related to COVID Mania that are worth highlighting:

  1. If your COVID test comes back positive on a PCR test, you have a well over 99% chance of recovering from the disease that you are being diagnosed with. This has remained the case since the beginning of COVID Mania. It doesn’t matter which “new strain” surfaces, whether it’s Alpha, Beta, Delta, or the next dominant strain, the result has remained consistent. 
  1. The average age of a COVID death both in the United States and abroad is about the same as the average lifespan. In previous global plagues, this was not at all the case. The hysteria surrounding COVID Mania is the product of the world’s largest and most widespread case of wholesale statistics fraud, corruption, and deceit.

Recall the early reporting on the Delta strain from earlier this summer. Similar to previous strains, Delta sported an extremely high recovery rate, significantly higher than the original strain “detected” in Wuhan. Here’s the data straight from the U.K. government:

However, as Delta became the dominant strain (according to gene sequence tests), everyone who was “dying of COVID” now had a Delta tag attached to their case file. Since earlier this summer, Delta has had complete dominance over COVID testing. Here’s the latest from the CDC, showing that over 99.9% of samples in recent months have come back attached to Delta.  

The early Omicron cases, like 99+% of all other COVID cases, regardless of variants, have been reported as mild. This has confused doctors and scientists who don’t know what to make of the panicked presses and world governments treating Omicron as if it’s the Black Plague once more.

Should Omicron defeat Delta on the surveillance test, then Omicron will inevitably replace Delta as the new “deadly virus.” Every death with a positive Omicron test is a corporate press headline. Every hospitalization is a “mandate” for the ruling class to impose more tyranny on the masses, in the name of our health.

If Omicron indeed becomes the dominant gene sequence, the corporate press and the tyrannical “public health expert” class will of course reframe the strain from “mild” to something far more dangerous. If Omicron becomes dominant (and some virologists are convinced that it will, but it remains to be seen), it will inevitably find its way into a nursing home or another setting where the average individual is both very old and very sick. When these individuals tragically pass away, they will be considered “Omicron deaths.” The same goes for the 450 pound diabetic, or someone the media will describe as a “young and healthy person with no comorbidities,” eventually “dies of Omicron.” If Omicron supersedes Delta, that means billions of potential hosts for a virus with a previously tracked 99.8-99.9% recovery rate. So regardless of whether Omicron has become a mutation so weak that it is akin to the common cold, there’s enough headlines in there for the panicked presses and maniacal governments to seize the situation to their benefit.

[…]

There is only one way Omicron remains attached to the “mild” tag, and that would come through its failure to supersede Delta through genomic surveillance. If Omicron dominates Delta, it will become just one of an endless series of excuses for the failure of governments to “stop the spread,” along with the failure of products coerced upon us by mafia-like pharmaceutical companies. As with Delta, the Omicron stats trick can serve as the perfect pretext for more government-imposed tyranny, coupled with hundreds of billions of dollars in further sales of junk pharma products.

—<Quote ends>—

Schachtel considered this to be mainly about the power and the money.

I’m pretty sure it’s just about the power: the cost of these lockdowns tower over the mere billions made by the pharma companies.

But then again, the losses are not to a specific group, but to the voiceless masses. In contrast, the benefits are tied to a small group that has solid access to politicians.

I’m still confident that this is just about power… but I admit, I could be wrong.

It could be about money, as well as power. Assuming an intense level of flat-out stupidity from Our Leadership.

Covid hypocrites caught red-handed

—<Quote begins>—

It’s high school all over again.

Remember those people who just had to be in the in crowd, no matter what?

They would act and dress and speak however they needed to in order to be in that crowd.

Well, that’s apparently how society itself is run.

The elites push ideas that increase their power. And the huge number of people desperate for acceptance and respectability and social status simply accept them. No evidence or reason necessary.

They will believe whatever they need to believe, whenever they need to believe it.

And if you dissent? Then just the way they socially punished the unpopular kids, they’ll jump on the bandwagon to destroy a heretic like you.

Ask one of these people: do you hold a single opinion that would surprise me? Is there any important question on which you disagree with Whoopi Goldberg?

I would love to ask students applying to Ivy League universities: name one opinion you hold that could make you unpopular.

I doubt they could name even one.

I mention this because of the enormous number of people, famous and obscure alike, one can find on social media who a year ago were denouncing the “Trump vaccine,” and who now want to exclude from society anyone who declines it.

Now you may say, “Well, they’ve since heard medical authorities approving the vaccines, so that’s the difference.” If that were indeed the difference, then I guess by their own logic they owe Trump an apology. I haven’t seen any.

There’s a Twitter account that follows people like this and shows how readily they abandon one view for the opposite one, depending on what happens to be socially acceptable. A sample:

Siskind is a real treat. Even though the account that compiles items like the above does nothing but publish screenshots, she called on people to report it as a hub of “disinformation.” How screenshots could be disinformation, I can’t imagine. I guess ol’ Amy was embarrassed being singled out as a hypocrite. Here she is calling on people to report the account that noted her weird shift on vaccines:

Same goes for the travel bans under Trump and Biden. (The other day, Fauci could not explain why this travel ban had been implemented, given that there were zero Omicron cases in most of the African countries targeted.) I could reproduce hundreds of these, but here’s a sample:

—<Quote ends>—

Takeaway:

The COVID-19 mania isn’t about medicine, or health, or serving the public.

It’s all about politics.

That is, it’s all about power.

The people get the rulers they deserve, and pay the price for their folly.

They may never learn.

But we Christians must.

We must uphold God’s truth and His judgement. Not our claims of power and purity.

The war on a virus has resulted in colossal failure, and the ruling class is determined to cover up this undeniable reality

The war on a virus is long lost, and the sunk costs keep piling up.

Whether you believe that this was all to bring about a Great Reset or some of the actors involved genuinely wanted to stop a virus, the result is now clear. The war on COVID-19 is over and it has resulted in colossal loss. Not a single battle was won. They lost the war, they know they lost the war, and now the losing side of the war — the global “elite” — is attempting to cover up this reality by any means necessary, even if it means dragging the entirety of humanity down with them.

[…]

Movement Passes for 5 year olds in New York City and San Francisco. Prison for the non compliant in Austria and Germany. Detention centers for troublesome citizens in Australia and New Zealand. What do all of these places have in common? First and foremost, as The Dossier readers know well by now, none of these measures are backed by any legitimate scientific precedent. The global “elite” forcibly drafted billions of people into fighting a “war on a virus,” and that war has been an abysmal failure. Now, almost two years into this war, the ruling class won’t give it up. Far from surrendering this unwinnable war, the “generals” of this struggle have decided to attempt to bring us down with them into colossal defeat.

[…]

The people, organizations, and governments in charge of fighting our “war on a virus” have lost in devastating fashion. Far from a successful global effort to stop a virus, these ruling factions and power centers have failed the billions of people drafted into this war without the consent of the governed. From Los Angeles to Sydney to Moscow to Rio to New York to Paris to London and everywhere in between, almost every government on every level across the world, with very few exceptions, committed incredible harm against their populations in the name of stopping a virus. And they have absolutely nothing to show for it.

[…]

They threw every “public health expert” class instrument in the book at the COVID-19 pandemic, and nothing worked. But the people in charge don’t want to be blamed for the chaos they wrought. That’s bad politics, and not an ideal situation for those who believe that they are the personification of science itself. So instead of admitting to gross, criminally negligent and now purposeful failure, these maniacal saboteurs are doubling, tripling, and quadrupling down on sunk costs for the masses. The “elites” know nothing is working, but they’d rather take everyone down with them than to admit to wholesale failure.

[…]

The masks failed. The lockdowns failed. Every single overhaul of society to accommodate the Safety Regime failed. And now it’s becoming pretty clear that the Big Pharma mRNA injection regime failed, too. The people did not fail the ruling class. Whether we like it or not, the people complied en masse. According to so many metrics, compliance with these pseudoscientific measures was off the charts. Almost everyone wore the masks. Almost everyone stayed in their homes to “stop the spread.” An estimated 8+ billion COVID shot doses have been administered. Citizens across the world placed overwhelming, virtual blind trust in these governments to protect them from a virus.

[…]

Humanity is left with a tremendous sunk cost, with the ruling class having drafted billions into this mess, resulting in hundreds of millions of lost lives and livelihoods. Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, Joe Biden, Xi Jinping, Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, the World Health Organization, the World Economic Forum, The New York Times, The Chinese Communist Party, Pfizer, Moderna, Facebook, Google, Twitter, the CDC, the FDA and the list goes on. These people, governments, and organizations should be defined by this era and the suicidal “war on a virus” that they forced upon the world. And everyone should always remember the incredible human suffering spawned by these actors.

—<Quote ends>—

After Adam and Eve indulged in their colossal failure, they made loincloths of fig leaves to hide their nakedness.

There is a distinct possibility that what we are not seeing is not so much a conscious power grab, as much as massive arm-waving of the Ruling Class to cover their failures.

It’s certainly a more reasonable assumption to my mind, than the destruction of trillions of dollars of wealth for the sake of billions of health care profits.

“The Experts are never wrong.”

“The Experts are never guilty.”

“If you obey the Experts this time,
and follow the scientific rituals this time,
then the Evil Flu will go away.”

“Obey the Experts. Trust the Experts. Obey Authority.”

What a bunch of abject failures.

They just destroyed an American city

—<Quote begins>—

Everything is supposed to the the fault of the terrible unvaccinated.

France just announced that it’s shutting down nightclubs for four weeks.

The unvaccinated have been excluded from nightclubs since July. So whose fault is it now?

In New York City, the dreaded unvaccinated are supposed to be such a threat that outgoing mayor Bill de Blasio has decided that excluding them from all aspects of public life in the city — restaurants, bars, museums, theaters, and so on — is still too dangerous for vaccinated New Yorkers. So the new mandate he’s imposing says every private-sector worker has to get the shot.

Oh, and even kids from age 5 are now to be excluded from restaurants and theaters and everything else.

Might there be relief from the incoming mayor, Eric Adams?

I wouldn’t get my hopes up.

Adams, unlike de Blasio, favors mandatory COVID vaccination for schoolchildren. And last week, speaking of the city’s vaccine passport system, he said: “The science is clear: vaccinations are our way out of this pandemic.  Anyone who believes we’re going to be operating under a new playbook under my administration is mistaken. Get vaccinated — and get boosted.”

It’s time to get out.

By the way, note the urging to get boosted. Well, just in case you thought this clown show couldn’t get more ridiculous, here’s a headline from The Atlantic:

Back to New York City for a minute.

I get that there are plenty of people out there who just can’t understand how or why anyone could feel any sort of attachment to it. Why, its politics are terrible, so who cares about it?

Well, that doesn’t describe me at all.

I spent five years in New York City while in graduate school and have so many fond memories from it. Since then I’ve visited dozens of times. I love the theater, the cuisine, the museums, the special events, all of it.

So for some of us, this really does hurt.

Michael Malice loved New York City. I couldn’t imagine him living anywhere else. But this was all too much, and he had to move.

Karol Markowicz is a New York Post columnist who loves the city and has done her best to counter the naysayers. And now even she has announced her departure:

If Karol is leaving, things have hit rock bottom, as observers have noted:

The damage being done here is incalculable.

And of course, you can’t sustain Broadway shows without tourism. International tourism is dead with the 5+ vaccine requirement to do anything, and domestic tourism is severely damaged.

Is this what New Yorkers want?

The scary thing is: the answer may be yes.

One more thing before we wrap up.

I do not take the position that you are the world’s worst person if you feel backed into a corner and cannot afford to take the heroic route and resist the mandates. I am not in your shoes and I refuse to condemn you. To do so is uncharitable, to say the least.

But I do want to help those people who may indeed be in a precarious employment situation.

So let me recommend The Daily Job Hunt, published by Isaac Morehouse, a longtime friend of the Tom Woods Show. He’s also the founder of Praxis, that amazing apprenticeship service I’ve told you about. He has done a lot of good for normal people.

6 Pack: Pfizer-BioNTech plan another 3 mRNA shots for Omicron

—<Quote begins>—

The Pfizer loyalty card meme has become reality.

The CEO of BioNtech, which produces what most refer to as the “Pfizer shot,” (Pfizer is BioNtech’s Western partner and is primarily responsible for the logistics, delivery, and marketing related to the mRNA shots) stated Wednesday that the company intends on selling a three-dose regimen for the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.

Citing “the data coming from the Omicron variant, BioNtech CEO Ugur Sahin stated:

“It is very clear our vaccine for the Omicron variant should be a three dose vaccine.” 

[…]

What data is the CEO of BioNTech observing to make this claim? That remains unclear. However, these companies are making an absolute killing with these shots and they don’t want the gravy train to stop any time soon.

[…]

The company has set a target date of March for the initial roll out of the shots, with an Omicron booster seemingly to follow 6 months later. Moderna, the Pfizer-BioNtech competitor, also plans on making an Omicron-specific shot.

[…]

For recent mRNA compliant individuals, this could mean some 6 mRNA shots over the course of a year’s time. 

[…]

The demand for more mRNA shots is being echoed by powerful governments and credentialed international “health” organizations. These institutions appear thrilled with the results of their sweeping power grab.

[…]

Before COVID-19, neither Moderna nor BioNtech — the two authorized mRNA shot producers in the United States — had ever produced a commercially available product. You can read more about them at The Dossier here:

[…]

However, there is a big elephant in the room and people are taking notice, given the unprecedented COVID outbreaks in Europe, the United States, and elsewhere

These pharmaceutical companies, politicians, and “public health experts” won’t address the reality that their shots do not appear to be working for current COVID outbreaks. In the United States, for example, the current outbreak, despite a heavily mRNA compliant population, has nothing to do with the much-hyped “Omicron variant.”

[…]

Throughout the northeast, there is currently an incredible surge in across the board metrics related to COVID cases and hospitalizations. This wasn’t supposed to happen, according to politicians, public health bureaucrats, and the pharmaceutical executives who likened their shots to a COVID “cure.”

—<Quote ends>—

If Our Leaders are actually, really, truly willing to destroy the economies of their nations in order to profit maybe five or so pharmaceutical companies… well, the mind boggles.

But my suspicion is that COVID-mania is not a corporate construct. At least, not in any but a superficial sense.

This kind of wealth and liberty destruction smells of a religious mania. True Believers have done worse, on behalf of their priests.

Christians had better stick close to the concept of the Priesthood of All Believers. Read your own Bible, and use the brain God gave you, to make your own decisions involving your own life, liberty, and property.

The so-called conspiracy theorists get another one right

Journalist — that funny word we use to mean regime propagandist — Andrew Feinberg wrote on Twitter last month: “Fact Check: DeSantis falsely claims vaccinated citizens without boosters could be declared unvaccinated and lose their jobs.”

That joker Ron DeSantis! Always making stuff up!

Except wait a minute:

Today, Anthony Fauci said “it’s going to be a matter of when, not if” the definition of “fully vaccinated” changes to mean more than two shots.

How about that!

I guess the new rule is: the span of time between left-wing denial of some crazy COVID thing that you and I warn will happen, and that crazy thing actually happening, is one month.

In other news, sometime in the coming weeks it looks like I’ll be interviewing Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., for the Tom Woods Show about his new book The Real Anthony Fauci.

For those of you who listen to the show on YouTube, that episode won’t be there, for obvious reasons. Adults aren’t allowed to have adult conversations on that platform anymore. But as usual you’ll be able to find it on all the podcast apps and on my Odysee video channel.

Odysee is where every single Tom Woods Show episode can be found, including the ones I consider too hot for YouTube, or which have been removed by YouTube.

(There’s no video portion for 99.9% of Tom Woods Show episodes anyway, so it’s vastly better simply to listen on a standard podcasting app in the first place.)

I consider it a major white pill that despite a blackout from the standard media sources, The Real Anthony Fauci has been the top-selling book in terms of raw sales (as opposed to the weird algorithm the New York Times uses for its bestseller list) in the United States.

A man who was trotted out to us last year as the apolitical, public-spirited expert is now considered a horrible villain to tens of millions of Americans.

That is truly excellent news.

If you heard episode 2010 of the Tom Woods Show, featuring guest Ken McCarthy (one of the greatest marketers and copywriters of all time), you know the publisher is getting marketing advice from Ken to help keep that book at number one.

In fact, when I had Skyhorse Publishing president Tony Lyons on the Tom Woods Show, I told him off the air: “Whatever Ken McCarthy tells you to do, you should do.”

In his appearance with me I asked Ken about a simple kind of business someone could run from home, safe from any Biden mandate. (When I say simple I obviously don’t mean there’s no work involved. I mean the way it works is simple, involving few steps.) We together described one, without many details.

Here are the details of that simple kind of business that you can pursue from the ol’ laptop, spelled out in a 30-minute over-the-shoulder video I made. Ken and I both run this kind of business ourselves.

If you’re curious, take a look. Nothing is being sold to you in this video (not that there would be anything wrong with that; we’re not commies, after all). At the very least you’ll certainly learn something you can apply to whatever online venture you wind up starting.

How I avoided a New York vaccine requirement

—<Quote begins>—

Friends, I’m on the road today but wanted to drop you a quick note all the same.

First of all, why I’m on the road: Tuesday night I flew to Columbus, Ohio, because I wanted to see Genesis on their final tour. I couldn’t attend in New York City (where I originally had tickets, purchased many months ago) because of their irrational mandate, so we headed to Nationwide Arena in Columbus, where we didn’t even have to get tested to attend.

So later today I head back home after a wonderful couple of days here.

By the way, here’s a picture from my seat, by the time most but not all people were seated:

Something for you to enjoy today in the absence of a longer newsletter:

In an episode of the Tom Woods Show last week I had a chance to talk to musician Dan Hagen, who (although he would never take this kind of credit) played a significant role in getting Nashville, Music City itself, reopened after its terrible lockdowns at the hands of a blue mayor.

Lots of insights here that can be applied in lots of situations.

The 2021 book you are not supposed to read

—<Quote begins>—

A potpourri issue for today.

(1) At Cornell University, all student gatherings have been canceled because of a rise in “cases.” The “cases” have increased, says the university, because of “off-campus student social gatherings where masking and other public health measures were not followed.”

And then my favorite part:

“Being vaccinated, even with a booster shot, is not a license to let down our guards.”

That would have been a laugh line in a comedy sketch 18 months ago, and now it’s being uttered in all seriousness.

What exactly would be a license to “let down our guards” — i.e., live like human beings? Not even getting three shots and walking around masked?

(2) UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid just said that vaccination certification in the UK, for admission to certain kinds of venues, will soon require three shots.

I know a lot of you are cynical about the likelihood of public opposition, and believe me I understand why, but demanding the booster in order to participate in normal life may turn out to be a bridge too far, just as demanding vaccination for children will be a bridge too far.

I’m already seeing people saying they did their part with the two doses, and that’s it.

(3) If you haven’t read Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s new book The Real Anthony Fauci, you need to. The very beginning gives you as good a footnoted summary of the damage done by lockdowns that I’ve ever seen anywhere. But it’s just getting started. It is relentless.

I’ll be recording an interview with RFK a week from today, and will get it released as soon as possible after that.

And now, two things to make you happy:

(1) Here’s the video of the great magician Doc Dixon sawing me in half at the 2000th episode of the Tom Woods Show. The whole segment is hysterical. This will make you happy, I promise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0l8fWBQopNI

The virus loonies may be running out of steam

—<Quote begins>—

Remember Alex Berenson, the reality-based reporter on COVID who got banned from Twitter for saying more or less what everyone now admits to be true?

He has his own newsletter, which I read, and I want to tell you about a recent issue.

He is predicting that the crazies have overplayed their hand, and that their apparent strength at the moment may not be what it seems.

Among his points:

(1) Barely 15 percent of children aged 5-11 have been vaccinated. That number is not going to get anywhere near where the crazies want it. Those weird parents who were panicked about a virus that is zero threat to their kids have already raced out to get them vaccinated.

(2) Although we have a handful of examples of mandates for children 5-11, Berenson notes that Democrats aren’t talking about that. It’s obvious even to them that it’s a loser.

(3) How may different federal courts have found one or another Biden vaccine mandate unconstitutional? Berenson: “I believe the answer is ALL. All the courts.”

(4) What are the odds that the Supreme Court follows suit? At this point, overwhelming.

(5) With regard to the boosters, Berenson asks: “Do you know anyone who actually believes the public health authority/media attempt to rewrite history and pretend that boosters within six months of vaccination were planned?”

If boosters do any good, then nobody will need a fourth shot. If they don’t, then once again it’s game over for the crazies. Willingness to take a third shot is far lower than for the first two, and of course for a fourth shot it will be lower still.

The crazies are creating more people for our side every day.

Berenson has more to say, but you get the idea. All is not lost. Keep fighting.

I do have one slight criticism of Berenson. I preface it by reminding the reader that I have promoted Berenson’s material heavily, on Twitter and in this newsletter. I am not a detractor. But nobody is perfect, and I will say this: Berenson’s strategy of avoiding people who are outside the so-called mainstream, in the misplaced hope that he would thereby be taken seriously by the Establishment, was always doomed to failure, and (as you and I could have predicted) wound up doing him no good in the end.

There is a lesson for all of us in that.

Now, with regard to the mandates:

I do not take the position that you are the world’s worst person if you feel backed into a corner and cannot afford to take the heroic route and resist the mandates. I am not in your shoes and I refuse to condemn you. To do so is uncharitable, to say the least.

But I do want to help those people who may indeed be in a precarious employment situation.

So let me recommend The Daily Job Hunt, published by Isaac Morehouse, a longtime friend of the Tom Woods Show. He’s also the founder of Praxis, that amazing apprenticeship service I’ve told you about. He has done a lot of good for normal people.

Is Omicron really a new variant?

—<Quote begins>—

Is Omicron really a “new strain,” or is there more than meets the eye to this latest COVID narrative?

Say I’m a scientist who has just discovered a previously undetected matter in the universe. Let’s call it Purple Matter. The world never bothered to test specifically for Purple Matter until now, because they had no idea Purple Matter existed. 

Somehow, my Purple Matter testing protocol finds Purple Matter EVERYWHERE. 

Does that mean my newly discovered Purple Matter only surfaced when I started testing for it? 

Of course not. If my Purple Matter test launched just last month, I would be a fool to assume that my discovery of Purple Matter perfectly coincided with my testing device.

And that’s exactly what’s happening with Omicron hysteria, and the ongoing, abysmal efforts concerning the “stopping the spread” of this latest “new variant.”

[…]

Either Omicron spreads so rapidly (see: absurd, hysterical, academic models claiming the whole world will be enveloped in a matter of days) that there is no stopping it, even through tyrannical COVID safety regime measures, or Omicron has already been here for quite some time. If Omicron is indeed new, there is the possibility that the modern scientific consensus regarding human to human transfer of viruses is so off base that it requires re-examining this notion entirely, but we’ll save that for another day.

Regardless of which is true, it’s a lose-lose situation for potential government “interventions” to stop a virus. Omicron is already everywhere. No amount of masking or lockdowns will make a difference. And sadly, the mRNA shots, which already show rapidly declining efficacy for previous strains, appear to show near zero efficacy in preventing a positive Omicron test.

[…]

It’s not just me making this case. Thoughtful scientists and data analysts are starting to come to the rather obvious conclusion that Omicron has been here for quite some time. This of course opens up another longer conversation for another day about the “original” strain first detected in Wuhan.

[…]

Any effort to “stop the spread” using the failed tools of Corona Hysteria is beyond foolish. Tyrannical movement restrictions have not worked to stop the annual respiratory season, and it won’t work when it’s again tried for an Omicron label. 

—<Quote ends>—

I am confident that the public will do nothing as the utter incompetence of Our Betters becomes blindingly obvious. Maybe some murmuring, maybe a few bad jokes but that’s about it.

There will only be a certain delegitimization of the medical profession: perhaps just a little in personal health care, but serious, expansive and enduring distain/contempt when Public Health enters politics.

I will assume, though, that today’s Public Health Professionals will never be held accountable for the immense evil they have done. No more than the Communist leadership was held to book in most Warsaw Pact countries.

(And don’t forget, the death penalty was first abolished in post-war West Germany to protect and shelter the Nazis leader-criminals.)

Christians had better believe it, though, when I say that God will hold us to a higher standard than He has held these evil men.

Whether we believers think this is fair matters not a whit. What’s important is that we do better, far better, than the white smock priesthood did.

What you can no longer say on Twitter

—<Quote begins>—

The “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” Department is going to need to open a five-story annex at this point, but get this:

Moderna just announced that it’s withdrawing from the upcoming J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference because of — get this — COVID concerns.

You heard that right. The same people whose vaccine was described as extraordinarily effective are afraid to attend a conference full of vaccinated people in a city that requires proof of vaccination to enter a huge array of indoor venues.

I found this out via an item posted in the Tom Woods Show Elite today.

Meanwhile, New York University just mandated booster shots for the entire campus. So not just the initial two shots, but now the booster will also be necessary.

All events and gatherings have been canceled. Oh, and you have 15 minutes to eat lunch, and you’ll be taking your final exams over Zoom.

By the way, know what the vaccination rate on the NYU campus is? Approximately 100 percent.

How do they maintain the narrative while doing all this crazy stuff?

Well, Twitter thinks it has the answer: it just won’t let us tell people that the shots don’t prevent the spread of COVID.

Its Terms of Service now include this: “We may apply labels to tweets that contain, for example… false or misleading claims that people who have received the vaccine can spread or shed the virus (or symptoms, or immunity) to unvaccinated people.”

Penalties can go as high as a permanent ban.

How even the dopiest of the dopes fail to realize, after everything we’ve seen, that Joe Biden was wrong to say you can’t get COVID if you get your shots or that vaccinated people don’t spread it or spread it significantly less, is beyond me.

The logic of the vaccine passport systems taking shape in various countries is based on the idea that the vaccinated don’t spread the virus, or spread it much less. But after two or three months, any such difference has dissipated.

So maybe — how about this — there isn’t any real logic behind them, and these systems are intended to punish political enemies and dissidents, and exert control for its own sake.

For its part, the UK has just instituted vaccine passports, and there is talk of lockdowns.

A UK resident posted this comment online, and as you read it, understand that this is what these people have done to the vulnerable of our society (capitalization and other usage as in the original):

Would i be exempt for anxiety and panic disorder. Im really struggling immensely since all this has kicked off again and struggle to leave the house as it is. I have bipolar disorder. Ive had my 3 vaccines but this is killing me. My mental health is going down rapidly and im scared about whats to come, especially more lockdowns and schools closing as i have an autistic son under 10 who wanted to self harm last year he was that depressed

This fills me with rage.

We have to keep fighting. We cannot let them demoralize us.

At the same time, we must positively rejoice in normality where we find it.

Every “large gathering” — every concert, sporting event, convention, whatever — is cause for joy.

Every one of these is, at least implicitly, a finger in the eye of what we laughingly call the experts.

Every eye that’s even now, at this late date, suddenly being opened — whether because of boosters, or the broken promises, or the refusal to let the thing go — is cause for thanks.

I am convinced that most people are just going through the motions at this point. The sliver of the public that is still sincerely hysterical about the virus has disproportionate influence on policymaking, but I don’t think the number is as big as it once was.

Still, you probably know people whom you expected to have come to their senses by now, but haven’t.

It is a frustrating and bewildering phenomenon, unlike anything I have ever experienced.

It’s exhausting, too.

Encouraging new poll on vax mandates and Biden

—<Quote begins>—

Alex Berenson divides America into three groups:

Group 1 is the 30% of America that still trusts the CDC, no matter what it says.

Group 2 is the 30% that doesn’t trust the CDC at all.

Group 3 is the remaining 40%.

Group 3, he says, is the group we should be aiming at. Someone who after all this is still blindly supporting the “public health” establishment is beyond saving.

A recent Monmouth University poll suggests that that 40% is trending toward the correct view.

As recently as last month, by a margin of 51%-43%, respondents said Joe Biden was doing a good job managing the pandemic.

In just a month’s time, it’s now a dead heat, 46% to 46%.

And most of that decline in satisfaction with Biden’s performance has come in states Biden won — where he’s down from 60% to 47%.

Independents have also soured on Biden, with 50% of them last month favoring his approach to the pandemic, compared with only 38% now.

Vaccine mandates, meanwhile, which once enjoyed majority support (53% in September), are now favored by only 46% (still much too high, but moving in the right direction).

(Also interesting: concern about catching a new COVID variant is at 66% among the boosted population, and 51% of those vaccinated without a booster. Among the unvaccinated, only 12% say they’re concerned.)

Not ideal numbers, to be sure, but the trajectory is encouraging.

‘Public Health Experts’ in government & academia have exposed themselves as clueless charlatans

There’s one thing that the “public health expert” class is certain about these days.

They claim to have the “the tools” to stop this coronavirus.

[…]

But the thing about these “tools” is that they require blind faith in order to work, since every observable metric shows that they’ve failed in catastrophic fashion.

[…]

It’s time to acknowledge some strikingly clear realities about COVID Mania:

We are now almost two full years into our population-wide “public health expert”-managed COVID tyranny, and it has not exactly paid dividends for anyone other than the people in charge, who have catapulted to a life of fame and prestige.

There is no evidence anywhere in the world that top-down authoritarianism, guided by these excessively praised “public health experts,” has produced positive outcomes for the health and safety of any nation. In fact, the opposite is true. Throughout the world, sickness and unhealthy habits are increasing across the board, both indirectly and directly related to COVID-19.

[…]

According to all observable metrics, the promised “cures” and “mitigation” and “suppression” strategies are not working as advertised. In fact, most of these “tools,” when employed, are making everything worse.

[…]

The mRNA shots were originally sold to the public with the claim that they prevent people from both infecting others and being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. This is why the FDA and CDC, among other “public health” bureaucracies, decided to green light injecting unthreatened 5 year olds with experimental drugs. The promise was that they would be “doing their part” to “save grandma” and “stop the spread.” Yet the prevention and transmission claim has been completely memory-holed. As evidenced most recently by the breakouts in universally compliant settings, after a period of time, the shots seem to do nothing at all to prevent infection or transmission.

[…]

Universal masking, another agreed upon tool to stop a virus, doesn’t work, yet the “experts” continue to swear by the act of securing a dirty rag to your face.

[…]

Curfews and lockdowns, a tool first popularized by the Chinese Communist Party, have done absolutely nothing to solve a virus problem. Of course, the ruling class has taken to quadrupling down on these measures.

[…]

The idea that someone could even be a “public health expert” should be met with great suspicion, yet governments across the world have put these people in charge of our entire civilization.

[…]

The “public health expert” class has no idea how to stop people from getting sick, yet they continue to claim that there are obvious “tools” to stop a virus.

These frauds and charlatans used to be relegated to publishing their annual quota of useless academic papers that nobody read. Now, their theoretical models and hypotheses have been put to the test via government force, and they have failed to an incredible degree.

—<Quote begins>—

This degreed, grasping government priesthood is going to fall in a spectacular fashion.

At first slowly, then swiftly, and at breakneck speed.

We are still at the early years, though. And all Our Betters hear is the univocal media echo chamber they own lock, stock and barrel.

(In some jurisdictions, using direct government cash! “Gotta save the obsolete National Newspapers Corps!”)

Memory Hole: virtually every major health official in the United States has claimed that COVID shots stop the virus

There is an incredible gaslighting campaign happening in the United States right now, as COVID cases reach all time highs in the U.S. northeast and elsewhere.

On television and in corporate press outlets, there is a giant, ongoing memory-holing operation related to the once-promised idea that mRNA shots would stop the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.

While they now claim otherwise, every single major government health official and pharmaceutical executive has claimed that COVID shots stop the virus. Let’s take a look at what the top government health officials have said on the record about these shots over the past year.

[…]

Let’s start with the worst of offenders, Dr. Anthony Fauci.

“When you get vaccinated, you not only protect your own health and that of the family but also you contribute to the community health by preventing the spread of the virus throughout the community. In other words, you become a dead end to the virus. And when there are a lot of dead ends around, the virus is not going to go anywhere. And that’s when you get a point that you have a markedly diminished rate of infection in the community.”

[…]

“Our data from the CDC suggests that vaccinated people don’t carry the virus, don’t get sick and that it’s not just in clinical trials, but it’s also in real world data.” – CDC Director Rochelle Walensky.

[…]

“You’re not gonna get COVID if you have these vaccinations.” -Joe Biden

[…]

“NIH director [Francis Collins] urges vaccinated Americans to get Covid booster shots to curb breakthrough infections over holidays”

[…]

“More People Need Shots In Arms To Reduce COVID Cases, NIH Director Says”

[…]

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla has repeatedly told people that his shots stop the spread of COVID-19 and prevent infection.

[…]

“I’m very confident that transmission between people will be reduced by such a highly effective vaccine” -BioNTech CEO Ugur Sahin, whose company developed the “Pfizer vaccine.”

[…]

Now, why is it important to hold these people accountable?

Well, first off, they made a false proclamation and need to be held accountable for doing so.

But second, and much more important, is the reality that almost every single one of the failed “public health expert” strategies related to COVID-19 are tethered to the idea that the shots will end the pandemic.

Lockdowns were highlighted as a means of buying time for everyone to get injected with mRNA shots. Today’s “lockdowns of the unvaccinated” are designed to coerce people into taking the shots, with the thesis that they are a threat to the community for remaining unvaccinated.

Mandatory masking (and “social distancing”), particularly among schoolchildren, are justified as a temporary tool to be utilized until one has taken the shots.

Vaccine passports are implemented under the impression that a “fully vaccinated” crowd would not spread COVID among one another.

[…]

Virtually every tyrannical restriction is tethered to the idea that shots “stop the spread,” yet they don’t.

—<Quote ends>—

Let’s look at those last two outtakes again:

Now, why is it important to hold these people accountable?

Well, first off, they made a false proclamation and need to be held accountable for doing so.

But second, and much more important, is the reality that almost every single one of the failed “public health expert” strategies related to COVID-19 are tethered to the idea that the shots will end the pandemic.

[…]

Every tyrannical restriction is tethered to the idea that shots “stop the spread” yet they don’t.”

This is true.

But, I take issue with the start of the second point:

Well, first off, they made a false proclamation and need to be held accountable for doing so.
But second, and much more important,

That is where Schachtel is wrong. If the Powerful Government Men are not and cannot be held accountable for their actions, then we do not live in a free society under law, but in a soft dictatorship with varying degrees of staged elections which change little or nothing.

“So what else is new?”

Christians are expected to live under God, and that means living free of the arbitrary and lawless whims of Powerful Men.

God did not create us to go hide in some corner, fearful of the outer world.

WE, filled with the Holy Spirit, are expected to change things.

As we certainly know that the secularist will not lift a finger to do so: after all, he created the System!

The crazies are well and truly out of ideas

—<Quote begins>—

You may have seen the news about the Netherlands being back in a hard lockdown.

This crushes anyone who, having been devastated last year, thought Christmas sales might start making them whole again.

And of course that’s the least of the problems with lockdown. We’ve discussed those problems quite a bit in these pages.

Incidentally, remember when the various European countries used heavy lockdowns, and we Americans were scolded for not being sophisticated enough to lock down long and hard enough?

Yeah.

And now here they are again.

They have therapeutics and they’ve touted multiple vaccines, and now they’re right back here.

In general, by the way, the pattern with the European lockdowns was that their numbers had already started to come down before the lockdowns took effect, but don’t you worry: the authorities made absolutely sure the lockdowns got the credit.

Back here in the United States, here’s a graphic from Twitter you may appreciate:

I don’t know how Feinberg responded to this, but the pattern seems to be:

(1) You’re a crazy conspiracy theorist for thinking X will happen.
(2) Yes, X is happening.
(3) It’s great that X is happening.

And in fact, Bloomberg tells us that incoming New York City mayor Eric Adams “is open to requiring booster shots for New Yorkers to be considered fully-vaccinated and enter into bars, restaurants and cultural venues.”

So in order to do even trivial things you’ll need the booster.

On the subject of vaccine passports, our friend Martin Kulldorff of Harvard shared some interesting data from North Shropshire, a constituency of the UK Parliament:

“After voting against Boris Johnson’s vaccine passports, the Liberal Democrats win North Shropshire by-election, a seat held by Conservatives since 1832. Liberal Democrat vote increased from 10% to 47%, conservatives went from 63% to 32%, and pro-passport Labour went from 22% to 10%.”

This is why, despite our frustration, I think the tide is gradually turning. More and more people are saying: we did what we could do. Unless we’re just going to continue on this hamster wheel forever, it’s time to move on.

—<Quote ends>—

Manias end when the general population decides that it ends.

Christians would be wise to relentlessly push for decentralized polities of tightly restricted powers, so we will not be subject to the arbitrary whims of Our Leaders.

Regardless of how many degreed experts they have to back an empirically failed policy: medical — “Public Health! Infectious Diseases! Public Health!” — social, fiscal, or any other kind of failure.

Incidentally… note the centralization of the mind, with the entire Western World – and the solid majority of the Eastern world, and poor nations too! — backing this expensive, ineffective, power-grab mania.

About the only region that even partly sidestepped most of this tyrannical, medically/scientifically unjustified nonsense is certain parts of the United States, areas of Eastern Europe, and most of Africa.

Hmmm.

(If I am missing some regions that avoided the restrictions and the mandates and the mandatory vaccines and the passports, let me — or better, the rest of the world — know!)

Discovered: Fauci part of campaign to demonize opponents

—<Quote begins>—

I’m sure you remember the statement last year by three experts — Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford, Martin Kulldorff of Harvard, and Sunetra Gupta of Oxford — decrying lockdowns as disastrous, and contrary to public health properly understood. It was called the Great Barrington Declaration.

Thanks to emails recently made public, we now know that Dr. Fauci and Francis Collins (of the National Institutes of Health) were part of an effort to smear these scientists and deliberately misrepresent their positions.

(Incidentally, when I was dealing with COVID myself, Jay — who has become a friend — wrote to me without being asked, to offer medical advice and answer my questions.)

For today’s email, I want to share Jay’s response, from a Twitter thread:

On TV today Francis Collins doubled down on his lies and propaganda attack and on the Great Barrington Declaration. If you read the GBD, you will not find the words “let it rip” because the central idea is focused protection of the vulnerable.

We now know the origin of the term — it came from the mind of Collins and Fauci. When reporters started asking me why I wanted to “let the virus rip,” I was puzzled. Now I know that Collins & Fauci primed the media attack with the lie.

I was also puzzled by the mischaracterization of the GBD as a “herd immunity strategy.” Biologically the epidemic ends when a sufficient number of people have immunity, either through COVID recovery or vax. Lockdown, let-it-rip, & the GBD all lead to that.

As Martin Kulldorff has said, it makes as much sense to say “herd immunity strategy” as it does to say “gravity strategy” for landing an airplane. The only question is how to land safely, not whether gravity applies.

So the question is how to get through this terrible pandemic with the least harm, where the harms considered include all of public health, not just COVID. The GBD & focused protection of the vulnerable is a middle ground between lockdown & let-it-rip.

Lockdowners like Collins & Fauci presumably think that focused protection of vulnerable is impossible. They could have engaged honestly in a discussion about it, but would have found that public health is fundamentally about focused protection. Some in public health did engage civilly in this discussion about strategies for focused with me and it was productive.

Instead, Fauci & Collins decided to smear Martin Kulldorff, Sunetra Gupta, me, & supporters of the GBD. They lied about the ideas it contains and orchestrated a propaganda campaign against us.

In this propaganda and smearing war, they joined Jeremy Farrar, the head of the Wellcome Trust, and Dominic Cummings, former consigliere to UK PM Boris Johnson.

They engaged in ad hominem smears, calling Sunetra Gupta, Martin Kulldorff, 
and me “fringe” epidemiologists. It is an odd argument given my decades of NIH-funded research. Does Collins & the NIH fund many other “fringe” scientists?

So, why do Fauci & Collins engage in ad hominem & lies instead of honest scientific discussion? I don’t know fully, but part of the answer lies in another puzzle — their blindness to the devastating effects of lockdown on the poor & vulnerable.

For instance, the economic devastation of poor counties caused by rich countries shutting down has contributed to tens of millions facing starvation. I could list many more harms…. We will need to work hard to reverse the damage.

COVID panic-mongering by Fauci & Collins led countless school districts to shut schoolhouse doors, especially for poor kids who could not afford private school, especially in blue states. The harm to our kids will last a generation.

Fauci & Collins are silent about lockdown harms because they are culpable. The sad fact is that they won the policy war, they got their lockdowns, and now with other lockdowners, own the harms. They cannot deny it. The GBD warned them.

They also cannot say that the lockdowns worked to suppress COVID. In the US, we followed the Fauci/Collins lockdown strategy and we have 800K COVID deaths. Sweden — more focused on protecting the vulnerable — did better & cannot be ignored.

Though lockdowns seem so sensible to some as a way to stop disease spread, in fact, they protect only a certain class of people — the laptop class — who are permitted to work from home. Lockdowns are a “let it drip” strategy.

Collins in his interview with Bret Baier says that “history will judge,” and he is right. It will judge those in charge of the COVID policy, and it will not judge kindly. He smears the GBD & its authors because he has no substantive argument left.

This would be damaging enough if Collins & Fauci were not also in charge of $41 billion that funds nearly every epidemiologist, immunologist, and virologist of note in the US. Their smear of the GBD is a signal to other scientists to stay quiet about lockdown folly.

The conflict of interest created here is at least as great as traditionally recognized conflicts that, for instance, pharma-funded scientists face. Collins and Fauci should have recused themselves from COVID policymaking.

Francis Collins’ interview with Baier marks a sad end to an illustrious career, and I take no joy in saying so. Fauci should join him in retirement. They have done enough damage.

You can say that again.

The “let-it-rip” strategy would have caused SIGNIFICANTLY less damage to the general population, and saved a good deal more lives, than the destructive-yet-ineffective lockdowns and worthless vaccination policies we got.

I wish more governments went with the Great Barrington Declaration, of protecting the vulnerable – mainly the aged, 75+ years old – and letting the low-risk/no-risk population get on with their lives. It may have saved even more lives, and caused less pain, than a true let-it-rip strategy would have done.

But Our Betters are always gasping for power over others: they hate liberty and self-governance in medical matters.

And in all other areas of life, too.

As for me? I think you know far more about how to protect your own health, than some government agent does.

You care a lot more about your health, too. As opposed to expanding your budget , the size of your bureaucracy, and your power over the Mundanes.

Does the Army really have a COVID-19 ‘super vaccine’ and future variant killer?

—<Quote begins>—

There are some wild headlines emerging on TV and in the corporate press about a U.S. Department of Defense-developed “super vaccine” for COVID-19, which is claimed to have the promise to work as a “pan-coronavirus” cure for any and all current and future variants.

Is the COVID-19 killer finally here? Your humble correspondent dug a little deeper into these claims.

The DOD’s Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) is doing a press tour for the preliminary results of a stage 1 trial for its Spike Ferritin Nanoparticle COVID-19 vaccine, or SpFN.

Defense One reports:

“Within weeks, scientists at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research expect to announce that they have developed a vaccine that is effective against COVID-19 and all its variants, even Omicron, as well as from previous SARS-origin viruses that have killed millions of people worldwide.”

On December 16, the Army issued a press release about its nanoparticle COVID shot.

Kayvon Modjarrad, co-inventor of the vaccine and the U.S. Army lead for SpFN, said in a statement celebrating this development:

“Our strategy has been to develop a ‘pan-coronavirus’ vaccine technology that could potentially offer safe, effective and durable protection against multiple coronavirus strains and species.”

Modjarrad added:

“This vaccine stands out in the COVID-19 vaccine landscape. The repetitive and ordered display of the coronavirus spike protein on a multi-faced nanoparticle may stimulate immunity in such a way as to translate into significantly broader protection.”

The Army says that phase 1 human trials were completed at the beginning of this month, adding that their shots proved effective against the Omicron variant and “future strains.” It’s not clear how this Omicron claim is even possible, given that Omicron was first reportedly detected on November 24.

There are currently more than 60 nanoparticle-based COVID shots in pre clinical development, and 26 candidates have advanced into clinical trials.

[…]

Here’s what’s publicly know about the trial.

There’s 29 participants enrolled in the stage 1 human trials for the SpFN vaccine. All 29 individuals had to be deemed healthy, between the ages of 18-55, and having a BMI under 35 prior to being enrolled in the trial.

[95% of COVID-19 deaths occur in people who are over 50 years old. Additionally, the vast majority of people who have severe complications from COVID-19 are elderly and/or have several comorbidities. The most common underlying conditions for COVID-19 complications are all related to obesity. Therefore, the trial, while abiding by standard protocols, ruled out any participant who is realistically threatened by COVID-19.]

According to the trial information, the vaccine group is designed to have a 5 to 1 ratio to that of the placebo group. With only 29 of an expected 72 enrolled phase 1 trial participants, this means our control group sample size is tiny – a probable control group of 5 people. Yes, 5 whole human beings.

[…]

The stories that are populating the media, and the Army’s hype of a pan-coronavirus, cure-all, is not only unwarranted, but deeply suspect.

Meanwhile, just one day before the Army celebrated preclinical studies on its COVID cure-all shots, Dr. Anthony Fauci and his colleagues in Government Health published a paper titled, “Universal Coronavirus Vaccines — An Urgent Need.”

Ignoring the Army hype, the part that Schachtel bolded stood out to me:

[95% of COVID-19 deaths occur in people who are over 50 years old. Additionally, the vast majority of people who have severe complications from COVID-19 are elderly and/or have several comorbidities. The most common underlying conditions for COVID-19 complications are all related to obesity. Therefore, the trial, while abiding by standard protocols, ruled out any participant who is realistically threatened by COVID-19.]

Somehow, the press never mentions this in their latest push for More Fear.

They’re trying to bring back the March 2020 crazy

—<Quote begins>—

The crazies are starting to crazy again.

This time I doubt it will go over as well.

Galit Alter, a highly credentialed immunologist and virologist, just told the press: “We have to reestablish the importance and vigor of the first wave. We’re back in ‘flatten the curve’ mode.”

I don’t know who “we” is, but I’m sure not, and an awful lot of Americans definitely aren’t.

Then Reuters sent this out via Twitter: “Top U.S. infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci said attending large gatherings of more than 40 people is considered not safe for vaccinated people, even those who got a booster dose.”

After all this, vaccinated people can’t feel safe in a gathering of more than 40 people?

Fauci once said that once 50% of the population had been vaccinated, the kinds of surges we’d seen before would come to an end.

Not only has that not proven true (yes, Fauci was wrong again, if you can believe that), but now we’re to the point that after an unprecedented year-long rush vaccination campaign, vaccinated people need to fear being at an event with 41 people?

The first time around, lots of people went for all this.

Now that some people have had three shots, they’re starting to murmur. Not as much as they should, of course, but they’re wondering: since I did everything I was told, why am I being subjected to threats of further radical disruptions to my life?

Esther Choo, who gives “public health” commentary on CNN and MSNBC, just shared the image below, and said that she could identify with it:

Her identifying with this image says something rather different about this lunatic than she thinks it does.

So they’re really thinking that it’s a winning message if they go back and say, “We’re back at square one”?

Meanwhile, Boston and Chicago have added themselves to the idiots’ list, imposing vaccine requirements to participate in normal life.

As we’ve seen, these measures do precisely zero good if their goal is to minimize harm from the virus — San Francisco and Los Angeles are among the worst places number-wise in California despite their passport systems — but plenty of good from the politicians’ point of view if the goal is to punish dissidents.

Boston and Chicago are even planning to join New York City in forcing 5-year-olds to be vaccinated to eat in a restaurant.

In a way, that’s great. It means zero international tourism for those places, and sharply reduced domestic tourism.

I feel sorry for the handful of decent people in those places, but the Boston public voted for this when they selected the new mayor.

And they’re about to get what they wanted good and hard.

Anyone running a business in these places who thinks this won’t crush them is living in a fantasy world.

Meanwhile, the example of Florida’s Ron DeSantis is keeping many red-state governors from reimposing the early restrictions.

Want to open a business? Find a decent red-state city and start there. Expect those places to experience a renaissance in tourism and commerce.

Some 25% of all new jobs created in the United States in November were created in Florida. Things are hopping here.

In short, the crazies are back in force, but I doubt they’ll get far. Still, they can make life unpleasant, especially for those of your stuck in blue jurisdictions.

So:

This is the time of year when we look to be generous toward others, but I suggest you also give yourself a gift — the camaraderie of the Tom Woods Show Elite (a perk of being a supporting listener of the Tom Woods Show), and the relief of interacting with thousands of smart, normal people who will help see you through these bizarre times.

Your mental health has taken enough of a beating. Be kind to yourself:

COVID shots were both marketed by Big Pharma and authorized by the government under the core claim that they prevent transmission: Both parties peddled baseless assertions.

—<Quote begins>—

With the United States shattering records for recorded COVID-19 cases across the board, it’s time to dissect all of the revisionist history in the waters these days.

Big Pharma and government regulators sold and authorized COVID shots to the masses using the core claim that they were providing something akin to a cure. These so-called vaccines were sold as immunization agents (that’s why they called them vaccines), not as a therapy treatment that may at some point down the line help reduce your symptoms if you acquire the disease.

There’s one major problem with their claim.

It’s baseless. Entirely baseless.

First, let’s start with Big Pharma.

[…]

Big Pharma COVID shot companies have repeatedly insinuated their injections would effectively eradicate COVID-19. Why did they make this claim? Well, Pfizer and Moderna, for their part, pulled information from limited trial data without actually releasing information on patients related to virus carriage and/or shedding. There was no real basis to these immunization claims, but Pfizer and Moderna made them anyway, and the government played along.

[…]

All of the “stop the spread” claims were based on sketchy trial data completely detached from firm scientific evidence. And worse, whistleblowers have come forward to claim that the trials may have been modified to help sell the product.

[…]

That didn’t for a second stop government bureaucrats like Anthony Fauci and CDC Director Rochelle Walensky from manipulating the masses into believing the shots would eradicate the virus itself.

[…]

Fauci and the “public health” gang remains on the warpath against the “unvaccinated,” but there remains zero real evidence that the non-compliant spread disease at an increased rate.

[…]

Of course, this never stopped the “public health” cadre from imposing one insane edict after another while baselessly claiming it would stop the spread of a virus.

[…]

Now, Big Pharma defenders may claim that these baseless assertions about “stopping the spread” were made when Pfizer and Moderna, among others, were monitoring trial patients who had acquired previous mutations of the virus.

However, the COVID-19 mRNA shots have never been modified. The first shot is the same as the second shot, and the booster shots are just different amounts of the same ingredients. If the shots used to stop the spread, and they no longer do, the effective end point of this critique should result in the FDA pulling authorization of the product.

Speaking of the FDA.

The FDA fully authorized the mRNA shots for Pfizer and Moderna under the central contention that they were unbelievably effective in *stopping the spread* of COVID-19. The evidence is available for anyone to access on the FDA’s website.

[…]

The Pfizer-BioNtech shot was specifically authorized “for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older.” This didn’t mean the prevention of severe vs mild disease. The government regulatory body made crystal clear that they were not talking about symptomatic infection, but simply testing positive.

“Based on results from the clinical trial, the vaccine was 91% effective in preventing COVID-19 disease,” the FDA press release read. That 91% number comes from a CDC study that claims both the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA shots “reduce the risk of infection by 91 percent for fully vaccinated people.” Commenting on the study, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky claimed the shots would work to “prevent most infections.”

There was never any real scientific evidence that Big Pharma and the federal government had found a way to stop the spread of a coronavirus, but they claimed otherwise. As evidence above, the baseless idea that the shots stop the spread was not only part of the sales job, it was the most important part of the sales job.

So many lies.

While I prefer to stress the Thirst for Power driving the mania — rooted in the progressive assumptions on the godlike powers of the State, and a deep refusal to tolerate evidence to the contrary — Schachtel prefers to stress the money-grabbing aspects of this lunacy.

The profits won by degreed hustlers and insider scammers is but a symptom of the delusions of the mark. A people who dismisses the pretentious claims of Authority to Protect the People — due, naturally, to how the evidence falsifies the claims of Authority — would have no time for any of this cant.

It is the duty of Christians to give rise to such a free and self-governing people, naturally skeptical of the claims of Powerful Men.

Mark your calendar: Biden gets one right

Now for today’s topic:

Joe Biden said something sensible about COVID.

On a call with state governors yesterday the President said: “There is no federal solution. This gets solved at the state level.”

Now if only he really believed that.

If he did, there wouldn’t be federal vaccine mandates, and the federal government wouldn’t be challenging states that forbid mask mandates in schools.

Not to mention: he campaigned on the idea that his predecessor didn’t have a “plan,” but that he himself did.

Huh.

But on the other hand, I guess it’s better that Biden’s handlers are trying this messaging than that they prohibit air travel to the unvaccinated, and other draconian measures recommended by the wicked Fauci.

And yes, Fauci is still pushing that. Not because there’s a health risk involved in flying with people who haven’t had the shot, but in order to punish the unjabbed and indirectly coerce them into getting it. Anything to “get more people vaccinated is welcome,” Fauci said.

Fauci’s message is becoming a tougher sell, though.

Some of you may recall boriquagato, or the “bad cat,” who posted such important and intelligent analysis on Twitter before that site decided his charts and statistics were too dangerous for us to see.

Here’s what he’s saying now:

Half the country said no to bio-tyranny, more of the center are joining them every day, the “vaccines will save us” narrative is in tatters, and Omicron is mild for the vaxxed and unvaxxed alike. the facts are too plain and the comparisons too stark.

This is the last barrage of cruel tantrum and pitiless derangement of reason before it all falls apart.

It’s all out in the open now, and America does not want a new and enduring regime of institutional prejudice in the form of “Jim Covid” laws.

Do not fear this remorseless and inhuman assault.

It does not come from a place of strength but rather demonstrates just how weak their cause has become.

They are freaking out because they can feel the end coming and the reckoning after such excess is unkind and they will face it not just from those they tried to conquer but from one-another as well and they fear each other even more than they fear us….

This is the time to peacefully but implacably say “no” and to take down the incipient authoritarians who so badly over-reached and who so direly misjudged us and our tolerance for them.

I’m cautiously optimistic going into 2022.

I’m fairly optimist, myself. But the elections of 2022 is only part of the solution. The mania will only be firmly closed down in 2024, God willing.

This mania isn’t fuelled by medical concerns, carefully tied to evidential results and careful research.

It’s fuelled by politics, and will have a political resolution.

I’ve just had an opportunity to interview Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., whose book The Real Anthony Fauci has been wildly successful despite a blackout from the usual suspects.

As you may know, Kennedy has a speech condition called spasmodic dysphonia, and some people find him difficult to understand at times as a result.

To help overcome this problem, I hired someone to caption the video (I rarely do a video version of my podcast, as you know).

This interview, by the way, is not on YouTube. I didn’t even bother uploading it there. YouTube doesn’t believe in allowing adults to have conversations.

Instead, it’s on my Odysee channel.

Establishment blackouts are failing, along with the rest of the gatekeepers.

True: they have had a resurgence — see YouTube’s blackout of Woods, for example — but that’s less than half the power to silence and stifle dissent that they used to have.

And their trendlines remain heavily downwards. Temporary resurgence, in the face of relentless and comprehensive disintegration of their power & control.

Few things die in a straight downward line.

Shell Game? There remains no FDA approved COVID vaccine in the United States

—<Quote begins>—

I fact checked the fact checkers and couldn’t believe what I found. Despite the corporate press, Big Pharma, and the federal government telling us otherwise, it is absolutely true that there is no FDA approved COVID-19 vaccine available in the United States today. And there are no plans to make one available any time soon.

I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s 100% true. And this reality hints at an incredible scandal within both Big Pharma and the U.S. Public Health bureaucracy.

On August 23, the FDA granted full approval for a COVID-19 vaccine to Pfizer-BioNtech for a specific product sold under the brand name Comirnaty. The landmark moment — the “full approval” endorsement from the FDA — was heralded by the Biden Administration and countless states, and quickly leveraged to coerce millions into taking the shots. This product, Comirnaty, was fully authorized for the “prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older.”

Yet Comirnaty itself has never made its way into the United States. The fully-approved version is nowhere to be found within our borders.

A separate product, which remains under emergency use authorization (EUA), is the only “Pfizer shot” available in the United States.

Early on, Pfizer and its government allies seemed to have a reasonable explanation for this issue. They claimed that Comirnaty was not yet available because the EUA shots were still lining the shelves, and claimed that the FDA-approved version would be available to all soon.

Now, it’s been over 4 months since full approval, and Comirnaty is still not being distributed.

The FDA has recognized Comirnaty as a “legally distinct” product with “certain differences,” but claims it does not impact safety or effectiveness of the shots. “Fact checkers” leverage the latter point of safety and efficacy to claim that people are still getting access to ingredients akin to the fully approved product.

But here’s the issue: they have yet to explain why people still can’t get Comirnaty, now 128 days after full approval.

And if it is the case that the two products are the exact same thing, the FDA has not explained why they only approved a distinct product named Comirnaty, and not the injection currently being sold under the EUA label. Why won’t the FDA approve the EUA product?

[…]

The CDC continues to confirm that Comirnaty is “not orderable at this time.” Moreover, the CDC currently states that “Pfizer does not plan to produce any product with these NDCs (National Drug Codes) and labels over the next few months while EUA authorized product is still available and being made available for U.S. distribution.”

[…]

Now, back to the trillion dollar EUA question.

Is Pfizer refusing to make the fully authorized version available, while continuing to sell an EUA product because doing so could open up Pfizer and BioNTech to legal liability issues?

Pfizer and an HHS spokesperson talked to The Washington Post in a previous “fact check,” and claimed that there’s no additional legal immunity benefits between the EUA product and Comirnaty. However, these entities have never explained why Pfizer and the federal government would go through the trouble of recognizing two legally distinct products.

An EUA fully protects the drugmaker and grants zero legal recourse to the patient. This surefire protection measure was bolstered by the PREP act and other measures implemented to shield COVID companies from liability.

[…]

Now, here’s where it all gets very nefarious.

Due to a law passed during the Reagan Administration, in order for drug makers to be granted more robust legal liability protection for their vaccines, they must first secure full approval for the children’s version of their shot. Steve Kirsch has explained this at length last month on his Substack. Additionally, Robert Kennedy Jr mentioned it on a recent podcast with Mikhaila Peterson. I looked into these claims extensively, and they appear accurate. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), which was passed into law in 1986, provides a legal liability shield to drug manufacturers if they receive full authorization for all ages.

Is Pfizer seeking approval for children so that it can protect itself from lawsuits? The company is working with regulators, even clandestinely altering vaccine ingredients (a process that should require them to get full approval for an entirely separate product), in a seeming bid to clear the path to legal indemnity.

[…]

Surely, there’s also a monetary incentive in play, but maybe there’s another reason why Pfizer, Moderna, and others are working relentlessly to authorize their products for children, who face near-zero risk from COVID-19, but continue to showcase alarming side effects from the vaccine. A vaccine on the children’s schedule provides a definitive, government-incentivized liability boost.

[…]

If Comirnaty becomes available for all ages, that means Pfizer receives an extensive, additional layer of protection.

Is Big Pharma using children as legal human shields for their products?

There is currently no fully authorized COVID-19 vaccine available in the United States today, and this reality has been attacked relentlessly by the corporate press. “Fact checkers” at NewsweekUSA TodayReuters the Associated Press, and elsewhere peddled false information to cover up this absolute fact.

If you run a Google search on this issue, you will find the aforementioned “fact checks” as evidence that Comirnaty is available, when it is most certainly not available. Nobody in the United States is receiving the legally distinct, fully authorized shot. Is it because that shot makes Big Pharma and corrupt regulators more legally vulnerable than they want to be?

[This piece has been updated to reflect that both Pfizer and the federal government claim that Comirnaty has the same legal protections as the EUA product.

However, there remains no compelling explanation for why there are two distinct products, and why one is being delivered under EUA, and the fully authorized version is not available.]

Every word out of their mouths is a lie, including ‘and’ and ‘the’

—<Quote begins>—

With so many positive test results for asymptomatic people, the CDC just declared that such people need to quarantine for five days rather than the previous ten.

What scientific insight led them to this policy?

CDC director Rochelle Walensky said, “It really had a lot to do with what we thought people would be able to tolerate.”

(This reminds me of when Alachua County, Florida, instituted a one-person-per-thousand-square-feet rule for retail establishments. When asked where they got that figure, the county commissioner said it was “because it’s easy math for everybody to do.”)

Then Dr. Fauci:

“There is the danger that there will be so many people who are being isolated who are asymptomatic for the full ten days, that you could have a major negative impact on our ability to keep society running. So the decision was made of saying let’s get that cut in half.”

I’m glad that after nearly two years Dr. Fauci is giving some thought to keeping society functioning, but this is exactly the kind of thinking Fauci himself would have condemned as recently as two weeks ago, back when he was monomaniacally concerned with one issue and unable to entertain the possibility that there may be other things society needs to worry about.

It’s strange, isn’t it? To you and me, it’s excruciatingly obvious that the people in charge are making it up as they go along, while the zombie population is just sure our overlords have some kind of master plan that they learned in a textbook somewhere.

Oh, they laughed at people who thought Donald Trump was playing 4D chess and had his own master plan, but they are convinced that Dr. Fauci ruined their lives for a really good, scientific reason.

Speaking of The Science, here’s a New York City council member with some recommendations for schools:

His list of suggestions continues, but I think that gives you the idea.

We now have an avalanche of evidence that schools are safe, and that teachers are at no greater risk than anyone else and if anything have done even better than people in other professions. This evidence comes from all over the world. Yet it makes no difference to our council member, who wants us to think that the more unreasonable he is, the more seriously he’s taking the virus.

Yes, yes, I know: the government’s schools are terrible. I’m not encouraging people to attend them. I am saying it’s psychotic to recommend that children eat lunch in 30 degree weather.

Regarding masks, Sweden’s schoolchildren did not wear masks at all. There are 1.8 million of them. Zero of them died, and their teachers did fine.

It’s just made-up craziness or outright lies. The Chicago mayor keeps screeching about overwhelmed hospitals, for example. But visits to the emergency room are lower than they were before COVID!

As Mary McCarthy said of Lillian Hellman, “Every word she writes is a lie, including ‘and’ and ‘the.'”

As 2022 approaches, resolve to surround yourself with truth-tellers and people who support you, as a buffer against the psychotic liars who want to ruin your life.
