  • However, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield rejected the effort, calling it a 'distraction'
  • Motion came as Whitmer's new three-week COVID-19 restrictions took effect 
  • The new 'Pause to Save Lives' order closed indoor dining at restaurants and bars and limited residential gatherings to two households at a time 
  • Today the state has more than 303,000 confirmed and probable cases and more than 8,500 confirmed and probable deaths

Gretchen Whitmer, governor of Michigan, has been under fire for her unconstitutional and illegal mandates against the citizens of the state of Michigan. As Whitmer issues orders to lockdown and stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic, hypocritically, her own family has been excused from these mandates. Incidentally, Whitmer has used her position as governor not only to increase her own power, but for personal material benefit.

The people of Michigan have had enough and the state legislators have now brought articles of impeachment against her.

It is unclear if the Michigan House of Representatives will have the guts to see this through. Hopefully, they will, and then, North Carolina can do the same to remove Roy Cooper.

Buffalo Business Owners Revolt Against Health Department

'GET OUT! WE WILL NOT COMPLY'

In my favorite video, perhaps ever, a group of Buffalo-area New York business owners stood up to the unelected Erie County Health Department and Sheriff’s officers who came to shut down their meeting to plan how to survive the latest shutdown of “non-essential” businesses at a local gym, Athletes Unleashed.

Local state governments all over the United States have been dictating to small businesses how they can be open or if they can be open at all while allowing Walmart and Target to operate unmolested through the entire coronavirus pandemic. As a result, Walmart and other corporate businesses are making record profits while mom-and-pop shops go belly-up under the heavy weight of unfair regulations from unelected health officials who aren’t accountable to the people.

The people of Orchard Park, New York, have had enough and have finally done what I have been saying should have been done from the beginning. Tell the government to get the hell off your private property and to go get a signed warrant from a judge if they want to shut you down: then you can fight them in court. But simply obeying unconstitutional restrictions on liberty should no longer be an option.

Study after study has shown that lockdowns hurt more people than they help and do not completely stop the spread of the highly contagious virus. If the grocery store can operate, so can a gym or a hair salon. It’s beyond time for a real movement of mass disobedience. Imagine ordering people to stop exercising for their “health!” It’s beyond absurd to close gyms and keep McDonald’s open because of a health crisis and it’s time for this idiocy to stop.

It’s time for the people to take their lives back. These business owners in Orchard Park did it exactly right. Watch this and be inspired. This makes me proud to be an American where we still have the greatest document on earth protecting us from tyranny if we would only use it. Watch how easy it is.

Coronavirus Anxiety Costs More Lives Than the Lockdowns Save From COVID-19, Study Finds

I particularly like the part where the obese officer tells an athletic man he should be wearing a mask for his health. The people quickly push back against the mask “mandate” and point out that it is not a law and they have no way to enforce it on unwilling free people. So, good luck with that, goons.

Not only did the people kick the officers and the inspector out of the gym, but they walked them all the way off the private property. Well done. Stand up for your rights as a business owner and an American. No officer of the law or government agent has any business on your property without a warrant. Make copies of the Constitution available and post a sign that says, “Unless you want to buy something, law enforcement is not allowed on private property without a warrant. Take a pocket Constitution with you as you leave.”

The sheriff’s department has no business backing up the health department without a warrant and those officers should be ashamed of themselves that they took part in this illegal activity of trying to stomp on the freedom of Americans to lawfully assemble. What’s worse is the sheriff of Erie County told libertarian candidate Duane Whitmer that he had no idea what his officers were up to and he had no intention of enforcing the health department’s edicts. It looks like he has some work to do inside his office to educate his staff.

Libertarian Candidate Duane Whitmer, spoke to Erie County Sheriff Howard immediately after, who stated he had no knowledge his deputies were showing up and had not instructed them to.

Howard recently told media, he had no plans to have his [s]heriffs enforce Cuomo’s ban on gatherings.

The sheriffs who have made the news recently for claiming they will defy the governors clearly need to be watched closely to make sure they are living up to their promises to protect the people. Whitmer told PJ Media, “I find it hypocritical of our elected Sheriff to go on radio shows saying he will not enforce the unconstitutional ego trip of our Governor, yet behind the scenes is telling his deputies to work with the health department,” he said. “If two people rob you, one holds the gun, one takes your money, they both committed a crime. His deputies are accomplices in violating [the business owners’] first amendment rights. I look forward to seeing Sheriff Howard’s clarification on this.”

Whitmer is hosting a press event on Monday outside the Sheriff’s office in Erie County.

 

OREGON, VIRGINIA, CALIFORNIA ENCOURAGING SNITCHERS REPORT PEOPLE & BUSINESSES VIOLATING THEIR ILLEGAL COVID MANDATES

Reinhard Heydrich of the Nazi Police State:

"SNITCHERS GET REWARDS" TAKEN RIGHT FROM HITLER'S PLAYBOOK:

Right out of 1933 Germany,  Hitler’s Third Reich,  – the mayor of Los Angeles encourages the population to rat out on their neighbors. “Snitches get rewards!” 

OREGON GOVERNOR KATE BROWN: 

BY RICK MORAN

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D) is asking citizens to call the police on neighbors who violate her new lockdown restrictions.

“This is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake,” Brown said in an interview Friday. “What do neighbors do [in that case]? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy. This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.”

No, it’s not “just like that.” Brown’s remark is a clever framing but there’s a huge difference between someone blasting music at 1:00 a.m. and an extended family quietly sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner. Only an authoritarian mind with delusions of control can’t see the difference between violating the law and violating a questionably constitutional edict from the governor.

KGW:

The restrictions, known as a freeze, were implemented this week via an executive order by the governor. For the next two weeks in Oregon, and four weeks in Multnomah County, residents are banned from eating out at restaurants and going to the gym, among other restrictions. Social gatherings in our homes are also limited to no more than six people. Violators could face up to 30 days in jail, $1,250 in fines or both.

Critics of the freeze have called it unconstitutional. Clackamas County Chair-elect Tootie Smith said on FOX News the freeze made Oregonians “second-rate slaves” in their own homes.

The “freeze” — a lockdown by any other name — may itself be unconstitutional as the governor’s decree is being challenged in court. But it’s the limits on family gatherings that have most people riled up. The government of a free society should never be allowed to reach into our homes and tell us what to do. This is so basic to the American character that the Founders included the Third Amendment to the Constitution, assuring citizens that they would be secure in their property.

But this is an emergency! It’s a crisis! It’s..it’s…human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together — mass hysteria! So it’s time to toss the Constitution into the dustbin of history in order to save lives!

There has been some pushback from law enforcement who take a dim view of barging in on people’s holiday meal and arresting them for…something. Governor Brown thinks that it’s all political posturing and no vital, irreplaceable principle is at stake.

“Look, all of this is irresponsible,” Brown said in response to those criticisms. “These are politicians seeking headlines, not public servants, trying to save lives. My top priority as governor is to keep Oregonians healthy and safe. That’s where I’m focused.”

The governor said Friday she’s promoting an “education-first” model, and she hopes enforcement won’t be needed. But she is employing the option in Oregon.

Governor Brown is not promoting an “education-first model” if she’s urging citizens to tattle on their neighbors if they violate her royal decrees. The next step is for Brown to put a bounty on the heads of violators and allow for citizen arrests of the criminals. It won’t slow the pandemic much, but it would be very effective in filling Oregon’s jails with dangerous COVID crooks.

DR. SIMONE GOLD, AMERICA’S FRONTLINE DOCTORS: Don’t follow Europe’s lockdown model on COVID-19

Illustration on the European lockdown model by Alexander Hunter/The Washington Times

Lockdowns are medically, socially and economically devastating

SEE: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/nov/14/dont-follow-europes-lockdown-model-on-covid-19/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The United States just passed 10 million confirmed coronavirus cases. Dr. Anthony Fauci is predicting a dark winter. Presumptive President-elect Joe Biden says he has a plan but continues to focus on an unenforceable mask mandate and the potential for more lockdowns.

In Europe, where an aggressive lockdown strategy was once heralded by public health officials and media pundits, the COVID-19 winter has already arrived. Across the continent, countries have responded to the pandemic by imposing new nationwide or partial lockdowns. Ordinary Europeans, who are familiar with the strategy’s staggering costs, are staging protests. They know a second round of lockdowns would be medically, socially and economically devastating.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson shut down his country for at least four weeks to prevent what he calls a “medical and moral disaster” for Britain’s government-run health care system.

In Italy, the government in Rome forced a nationwide curfew along with travel restrictions in certain regions.

German citizens are told to accept “wave breaker” lockdowns for the rest of November and rule out “lavish New Year’s Eve parties,” says Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Public health officials around the world are using infection models to justify draconian measures. The experience and counsel of front-line doctors and physicians who are treating patients during the pandemic barely register with these “experts.”

Lockdowns aren’t treatment. They’re not science. They’re reckless. The U.S. must resist taking cues from governments across the Atlantic on how to handle a second wave.

General lockdowns are both unnecessary and demonstrably ineffective. Research and experience tell us that COVID-19 spreads most efficiently indoors. In a study of more than 7,300 cases, international researchers found that just two infections could be linked to outdoor settings. Effective social distancing is relaxed or unobserved inside and the often drier, uncirculated air of indoor environments encourages viral transmission. In short, keeping people locked up in their homes exposes them to a greater level of risk over time.

The stated purpose of both the European and American lockdowns earlier this year was to prevent overwhelming local hospitals with critically ill patients. However, as the shutdown dragged on in places like New York and California, public health officials saw increases in heart disease and cancer rates, as well as functional decline directly attributable to fearful Americans putting off visits to their doctor or hospital.

Addiction and mental health crises have grown rapidly during the pandemic. Rates of suicide, depression and substance abuse are up. Children are expressing higher levels of loneliness, anxiety and neuroses. Following the European shutdown model again would only lead to more non-COVID excess deaths.

Furthermore, advances in treatment since the start of the pandemic have led, on average, to lower mortality rates and shorter hospitalizations, or at-home treatment for those who exhibit symptoms. One of these safe and effective treatments is FDA-approved hydroxychloroquine, a medication which concerned physicians have lobbied the federal government to make available over the counter in the U.S., just as it is in many countries around the world. There is no reason why the citizens of Poland, Iran, Indonesia, Turkey, Venezuela, the Philippines and others should have greater access to this inexpensive treatment than Americans. 

Then there is the economic damage. The International Monetary Fund estimates the global cost of the pandemic at about $28 trillion. In the U.S., the number of long-term unemployed is rising, even as the economy gradually rebounds from its COVID-induced recession. There are about 7 million more people out of work now than prior to the pandemic, and the longer the laid off go without a job the harder it becomes for them to find one. The retail, hospitality and travel industries, along with thousands of businesses, have all been impacted, perhaps permanently, with economists predicting that the U.S. job market won’t recover until at least 2022.

Some limited initial lockdowns may have been a logical stopgap measure in the spring, when we were still learning about this highly infectious virus — not anymore.

America should lead with what it has learned. Whether it’s Donald Trump or Joe Biden, we should not follow the European lockdown model. The White House should take advice from those who have actually treated COVID-19 patients in clinical settings instead of trusting more failed models and made-for-media science. By choosing to follow the evidence and learning from experienced physicians, the U.S. can beat the pandemic, protect vulnerable groups and avoid subjecting Americans to Europe’s long, dark winter.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo Melts Down, Yells at Reporter Asking Him to Clarify His COVID ‘Law’

HOT HEADED "FREDO" TYRANT BLASTS & INSULTS REPORTER:

BY STACEY LENNOX

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/stacey-lennox/2020/11/19/watch-gov-andrew-cuomo-melts-down-yells-at-reporter-asking-him-to-clarify-his-covid-law-n1160316;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Governor Andrew Cuomo has had what is arguably one of the worst responses to COVID-19. New York State has still not accurately recorded nursing home residents’ deaths during Cuomo’s horrific policy of putting COVID-19 positive patients in nursing homes. They only counted them if they died in the long-term care facility, not if they went to the hospital first. New York is still second to New Jersey in COVID-19 deaths per million in the entire country and has a higher rate than some small nations.

Despite this, Cuomo felt emboldened to print a poster about New York’s response to mock Sun Belt governors when their states saw mild spikes over the summer. Those same Sun Belt states have nowhere near New York’s death rate. Then to celebrate his accomplishments, such as killing the elderly, destroying the economy, and implementing policies that have caused residents to flee, he wrote a book. Ironically, he titled it American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Now, positive test rates are rising in New York again. First, Cuomo and the horrible NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio cracked down on the Orthodox Jewish communities. Governor Cuomo is now implementing what he refers to as the “Orange Law,” and held a press conference to address it. A local reporter asked him to explain it; the full exchange with that reporter is below. It started with a simple question about Governor Cuomo’s authority to close schools in New York City by imposing an “orange zone.” The reporter was asking on behalf of confused parents who just wanted to know whether their children’s schools would be open or closed the next day.

Cuomo’s response was the beginning of a complete meltdown demonstrating his total lack of leadership:

“First of all, let’s try not to be obnoxious. and offensive in your tone. Because you’re 100% wrong. These laws have all been in effect for months. I’ve always said we set initial parameters and then the school district picked the percent within those parameters. New York City picked 3%. We announced the “orange zone” law over a month ago. I don’t know if you were here or if you were paying attention. But that has been in effect for over a month. It always said if by the state’s numbers you hit 3% the schools close. What’s going on here [mocking the reporter] is nothing that the law hasn’t said for over a month. We then had to test out procedures. If you were paying attention, you would have known we closed the schools in New York City two weeks ago. Remember, when we did an orange zone and a red zone in Brooklyn and Queens? And we closed the schools. Don’t you remember that?

Searching the legislative database, there is no bill passed by the New York State Legislature that defines the parameters for the COVID-19 restrictions. However, many publications on the governor’s website talk about a “micro-cluster strategy.” This includes red, orange, and yellow zones that define the level of COVID-19 restrictions that will be implemented. Cuomo stating that this is a law is a stretch.

While the legislature may have given Gov. Cuomo broad authority to manage the pandemic, all of the adjustments to the locations targeted for various levels of lockdowns by color come from his office. The strategy is a complex nine-page summary that certainly makes the reporter’s confusion understandable. Cuomo’s initial answer is far from clarifying and more a declaration of his own authority over the state’s residents.

The reporter interjected. Cuomo responds and starts yelling within just a few seconds (in all caps):

“Okay, so don’t you, what are you talking about? What are you talking about? ‘You’re now going to override’ (mocking the reporter). WE DID IT ALREADY. THAT’S THE LAW. AN ORANGE ZONE AND A RED ZONE. FOLLOW THE FACTS.

The reporter said he was still confused, as Cuomo had never answered his question as to whether or not schools in New York City would be closed the next day. Cuomo responded with more yelling.

WELL THEN, YOU’RE CONFUSED.

The reporter again explained it was not just him who was confused; parents in New York were confused. Cuomo responded:

No, they’re not confused. You’re confused. Read the law and you won’t be confused.

This was a stunning display of Andrew Cuomo trying to lead by intimidating. His performance is replete with finger jabs, angry faces, and yelling. Other reporters defended the first, saying the question was not obnoxious. Cuomo dismissed them rudely, yelling about the “law.” He explained that his micro-cluster designations overrule local guidelines. Reporters kept trying to clarify the strategy and how it would be implemented. By the end of Cuomo’s remarks, the whole program is about as clear as mud.

Leadership indeed.

WASHINGTON, D.C.: NATIONAL VACCINE INFORMATION CENTER ABOUT CHILD VACCINES WITHOUT PARENTAL CONSENT

Dear NVIC Advocacy Team Members,

We need your quick one minute action to reach out to the Mayor of DC, Muriel Bowser, to tell her to VETO B23-0171.

The DC City Council passed the dangerous and predatory bill B23-0171 by a vote of 10:3 on Tuesday 11/17/2020. This law will not only permit children 11 years old and older to consent to vaccines on their own without parental knowledge or consent, the bill requires insurance companies, vaccine providers and schools to conceal the fact that the child has been vaccinated from the parent! It also sets up these young children to be targets of bullying and coercion to be vaccinated behind their parents' backs!

There are multiple federal and local laws that will be broken by this new DC law (Family Educational Rights and Privacy ActNational Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986Religious Exemption to Vaccination). The law is also in conflict with Supreme Court precedent affirming parental rights, and it puts children’s health and safety at risk not only for serious reactions and even possible death, but it exposes children to be victims of under-documented overvaccination.

Mayor Bowser has up to 10 days to respond.  We need her to VETO this new law.  Please help her get the message loud and clear that America is watching and this is not an acceptable action by government!

Contact DC Mayor Muriel Bowser IMMEDIATELY to VETO B23-0171 Vaccinating Children Behind Parents’ Backs

PA Governor Wolf Mandates Mask-Wearing in Your Own Home

With another COVID-19 wave on the horizon, several states are restricting the number of guests you can have over for Thanksgiving.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, however, is adding several new measures, including testing and quarantining for people coming into the state (with some exceptions) and requiring the wearing of masks in your own home if you have company over.

Pennsylvania already has a statewide mask mandate and other social distancing guidelines. But these new mandates are in response to a spike in cases despite their existing coronavirus-fighting efforts.

It’s a good time to move to Florida.

Pennsylvania Now Requires Masks Inside Your Own Home

SEE: https://reformationcharlotte.org/2020/11/18/pennsylvania-now-requires-masks-inside-your-own-home/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Despite the release of the results of the largest face mask study ever performed which concluded that masks have a statistically insignificant effect on spreading the coronavirus, tyrants in the state of Pennsylvania are ordering residents to wear them, all the time, even in your own home.

“Strengthening masking order,” the Pennsylvania Health Department tweeted yesterday. “Masks are still required. Indoors: masks now required anytime you’re with people outside of your household, even if you’re socially distant. Applies to all indoor facilities + if you have people in your home not part of your household,” they continued.

Nevermind that your home is your castle and the state has no authority over how to act in your own home. These people aren’t in this for your health — they are about totalitarian control. It was understandable, though arguable, that people may have thought that face masks may have had some impact on the spread of the coronavirus during the early stages of the outbreak. There were very little data and science to go on. However, the fixation with facemasks — particularly among the far-left Democrat states — is indicative of something much more sinister. These people want to control you.

 
 

Dr. Death, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, Becomes Biden Coronavirus Advisor~Denying medical services to the elderly is one way to keep costs down.

BY DON FEDER

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/11/dr-death-becomes-biden-coronavirus-advisor-don-feder/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Maimonides, the great 12th century codifier of Jewish law, said: “The good doctors will go to hell first,” because skilled physicians will be tempted to play God.

Enter Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a member of Biden’s recently-announced Coronavirus Advisory Committee. The architect of Obamacare, and brother of former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, is one scary dude. Kindly, Old Doc Emanuel is an advocate of health care rationing for the elderly.

In a 2014 article for The Atlantic, “Why I hope to Die at 75,” Emanuel wrote: “Living long is also a loss. It renders many of us if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived. It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to society …. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.”

When he became prime minister in 1940, Winston Churchill was 66. He was 71 at the end of World War II and 77 when he became prime minister for a second time in 1951. Feeble, ineffectual and even pathetic aren’t words generally associated with Britain’s greatest wartime leader. Ronald Reagan was 70 when he took the helm in 1981.

The problem here isn’t that Emanuel doesn’t want to live past 75, but that he doesn’t want the rest of us to live beyond that age either. In 2009, medical ethicist Wesley J. Smith wrote that Emanuel “explicitly advocates rationing based on what appears to be a quality of life measurement.”

By our “ability to contribute to society,” Emanuel doesn’t mean performing neurosurgery, composing symphonies or designing skyscrapers, but paying taxes. Thus the quality of life will turn on the individual’s ability to support the state.

Even though he “contributed” for 40 or 50 years, in retirement, the senior is drawing benefits – including Social Security and Medicare. Unless they have investment income, chances are they’re not paying federal taxes. From the progressive perspective, what good are they?

The septuagenarian Dr. Emanuel wants to slip into that good night may have served his country in time of war, raised a family or built a business. He deserves better than to be told he’s lived too long.

For those like our esteemed doctor, everything is considered from a cost/benefit perspective. The longer we live, the more it costs to keep us alive. In the last years of life, medical expenses often soar. Besides, where are we going to get health care for illegal aliens if seniors soak up resources which should be earmarked for one of the Democrats’ favorite constituencies?

Things get really dicey at the intersection of health care and declining fertility, AKA Demographic Winter.

In the West, we live in rapidly aging societies where the elderly population grows, while the number of workers paying the taxes that fund social programs declines.

Between 1950 and 2017, the U.S. fertility rate (the number of children the average woman will have in her lifetime), fell from 3.5 to less than 2 – with 2.1 needed to replace current population.

In 2009, those 65 and older were 12.5% of total population. By 2019, they were 15%, projected to rise to 20% by 2030. In 1950, the ratio of workers to those of retirement age was 8 to 1. Today, it’s 5 to 1. By 2030, it will be 3 to 1.

Demographic Winter is another gift of the cultural left, which encourages late marriage or singleness and discourages procreation.

How to solve the birth-dearth? For conservatives it’s obvious: have more children. For progressives, it’s equally obvious: get rid of the elderly. After all, Emanuel has told us that beyond 75, their lives really aren’t worth living anyway.

It won’t be anything as obvious as euthanasia or doctor-assisted suicide (Emanuel says he’s opposed to both), but simply withholding services other than palliative care. In Canada and the United Kingdom (countries with more advanced cases of state-run medicine), seniors are routinely denied certain tests and procedures – or they’re delayed in the hope that the patient will die first.

Biden might want to start looking over his shoulder. At age 77, and with what appears to be pronounced cognitive decline, he’s a prime candidate for Emanuel’s medical triage. Really, Joe, do you want to continue this “feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic” existence?



Trump COVID Adviser: “The Only Way This Stops Is If People Rise Up”

BY STEVE WATSON

SEE: https://www.infowars.com/posts/trump-covid-adviser-the-only-way-this-stops-is-if-people-rise-up/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Dr. Scott Atlas, a leading member of President Trump’s coronavirus task force, announced Sunday that “The only way this stops is if people rise up.”

Atlas was responding to the decree of a new lockdown by Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

Atlas tweeted out a thread with Whitmer’s announcement, and a graphic made by The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services highlighting what will be allowed to remain open and what will be forced to closed.

Atlas encouraged people of Michigan to “rise up”, and added “You get what you accept. #FreedomMatters #StepUp”:

We have been warning you for months, if not years, of the WHO’s depopulation plan. Only now is it confirmed by world leaders that COVID was designed for the Agenda 2030 to begin.

Leftists immediately accused the doctor of encouraging violence, and ‘endangering’ Whitmer’s life:

Atlas clarified that he never endorsed violence of any sort:

Whitmer responded to Atlas during an interview with CNN, stating “We know that the White House likes to single us out here in Michigan — me out in particular. I’m not gonna be bullied into not following reputable scientists and medical professionals.”

Documents also show the Biden Cancer Initiative, founded by Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden and wife, Jill, after Joe's oldest son, Beau, died in 2015 from brain cancer, spent nearly $1 million on travel and conference expenses during that time.

The charity took in $4.8 million in contributions in fiscal years 2017 and 2018 and spent $3 million on payroll in those two years.

Gregory Simon, president of the Biden Cancer Initiative and former Pfizer executive, reportedly received $429,850 during the 2018 fiscal year, nearly double what he made in 2017.

Danielle Carnival, former chief of staff for Obama's Cancer Moonshot Task Force, was paid $258,207 in 2018.

The initiative, suspended in 2019 as Biden became further involved in the 2020 presidential election, was initially touted as an organization that would "develop and drive implementation of solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, research and care, and to reduce disparities in cancer outcomes."

Airlines to Require “Health Pass,” Vaccine Certificate Before Allowing Passengers to Fly

BY PAUL JOSEPH WATSON

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Airlines are likely to require passengers to sign up for a “health pass” which includes a digital certificate of vaccination against COVID-19 before allowing them to fly, according to a new report.

The system would be similar in nature to that being considered by Ticketmaster, who it was revealed earlier this week are considering making customers prove they’ve had the vaccine or a negative coronavirus test before allowing them to purchase tickets.

Ticketmaster later clarified that a final decision on such measures would be up to event organizers but that they were still mulling over the implementation of the system.

Now according to a new report by Axios, airlines are likely to follow the same model.

“Three global alliances representing 58 airlines are pushing governments to allow widespread COVID-19 testing of passengers instead of existing quarantine restrictions that they argue are ineffective and have killed travel demand,” states the report.

Airline passengers would be subject to similar measures being considered by Ticketmaster whereby they would have to verify they’ve been vaccinated or tested negative 24 to 72 hours before the flight.

“The bottom line: No heath pass? No admittance. And perhaps, no flying,” states the report.

The system would likely be organized under the auspices of CommonPass, a program sponsored by the World Economic Forum, which is pushing for a post-COVID “Great Reset” that would transform the world.

With Uber and other companies also beginning to refuse services to people who fail to comply with coronavirus restrictions, the “new normal” will likely create a lower caste of refuseniks who are barred from traveling, any form of social life, and in the future even basic financial services.

Joe Biden’s Covid-19 Taskforce Member Recommends Withholding Food Stamps, Rent Assistance From Those Who Refuse Vaccines

Get ready for an Orwellian medical police state run by fascist vaccine pushers & Big Tech censors

BY MIKE ADAMS

SEE: https://www.infowars.com/posts/joe-bidens-covid-19-taskforce-member-recommends-withholding-food-stamps-rent-assistance-from-those-who-refuse-vaccines/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

If you vote for tyrants, you get tyranny.

This is what millions of Joe Biden supporters are about to discover if their candidate manages to steal the election and seize control of the White House.

A prominent member of Biden’s Covid-19 taskforce, a CIA-linked operative named Luciana Borio, says that people who refuse to be vaccinated should be deprived of food stamps and rent assistance.

And in order to convince Black Americans to take the vaccines, influencers should be hired to brainwash Blacks with special compliance messages that are scientifically tested in social engineering focus groups.

In other words, obey or starve. This is all contained in the report linked in this story, by the way.

This is on top of another Biden taskforce member now calling for a 4-6 week national lockdown for all Americans — a kind of national economic suicide to finish off whatever small businesses might have survived the covid nightmare so far.

This covid tyranny is exactly what we’ve warned was coming: Lockdown tyranny and vaccine tyranny, enforced through a horrifying new “medical credit scoring” system that tracks your compliance with government mandates for vaccines, lockdowns and masks.

The task force member in question here is Luciana Borio, MD, the Vice President of In-Q-Tel, a CIA-linked propaganda front that uses social engineering tactics to enslave humanity. She’s listed as the top member of the “Working Group of Readying Populations for COVID-19 Vaccines” as described in a document from the Center for Health Security, released in July of this year by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. A copy of this PDF has been saved at the Natural News servers, in case they try to take it down from its original location.

The document says that federal agencies should collude to develop a “national promotion strategy” — which might as well be called a “national propaganda strategy” — for convincing people to take potentially dangerous and deadly covid-19 vaccines which have skipped any real rigorous testing.

“Bundling” of vaccinations with food stamps, health care and rent assistance

The document recommends that vaccine mandates get “bundled” with other social services such as food stamps (WIC program), rent assistance and health care services. The report explains:

Local and state public health agencies should explore collaboration with interagency and nongovernment partners to bundle vaccination with other safety net services.

It also says that “bundling” vaccines with food stamps would be, “a way to build trust and streamline vaccine provision” among low-income people such as “Blacks and minority communities.”

Yes, just as we’ve all known for quite some time, the depopulation vaccines will be targeting Blacks in America, which is exactly what the abortion industry targets as well. But anyone who criticizes the forcing of vaccines onto Black Americans will be called racist, of course. The report also talks about putting in place a medical police state monitoring infrastructure to surveil Blacks and minorities in real time, making sure they surrender to forced immunizations:

It will also be critical to monitor in real time who has gotten the vaccine and what the key facilitators and barriers to vaccination have been within communities, so local public health departments can adapt their approaches accordingly.

The document even talks about Blacking-up the vaccine propaganda language in order to appeal to Blacks and so-called anti-vaxxers:

Given the diverse nature of social identities in the United States, vaccination communications will need to be tailored to specific audiences that are key to an equitable and effective COVID-19 response (eg, essential workers, parents, groups with high comorbidity rates, communities of color, vaccine-hesitant persons).

In order to brainwash Blacks and minorities into accepting dangerous, experimental covid-19 vaccines, document authors say that influential celebrities (such as Hollywood stars and music stars) should be recruited to deliver messages so that uninformed people can be influenced:

Engage a broad network of trusted spokespersons who can deliver and reinforce a unified message about COVID-19 vaccination…  To motivate people to take protective actions like vaccination requires that they hear a salient and specific message repeatedly, delivered by multiple trusted messengers and via diverse media channels.

The report even admits that Blacks and minorities have been lied to and abused by the government before, especially involving public health issues: “…minority groups have often experienced a history of government abuse that may make it harder build trust.”

Finally, the document proposes that scientific testing on “vaccination messages” should be openly published by the NIH, CDC and NLM (National Library of Medicine) so that all the authorities have access to all the social engineering experiments that attempt to brainwash Blacks with pro-vaccine propaganda.

Mandatory vaccine sites: Grocery stores, pharmacies, schools, workplaces, senior citizen centers and churches will all be used to force vaccines on everyone

The document not only recommends that food assistance and rent assistance be withheld from those who refuse mandatory coronavirus vaccines, it also says that “home visits” should be used to inject people on a door-to-door basis. In addition, workplaces, pharmacies, churches and schools are named as candidates for forced immunizations, and the document recommends that pharmacists be allowed to “administer a vaccine directly without a standing order.”

The document specifically states that vaccine efforts should include “nontraditional sites” such as “places of worship” or senior centers, and that covid-19 vaccines should be “bundled” with other essential social services such as food stamps (see below).

From the document: (emphasis added)

COVID-19 vaccination may require ramping up the use of sites that are already available and accessible to older adults but are used less frequently; widely placed community pharmacies, for example, are an underutilized site for routine vaccine promotion and administration,111 but they were used successfully for expanding access to pandemic vaccine in 2009 and 2010.112 Most adults in the United States live closer to a pharmacy than to a clinic, and pharmacy vaccination programs can be especially effective for harder-to-reach populations. Pharmacy immunization efforts work best when pharmacists are given adequate training in administering a new vaccine and when state-level policies allow pharmacists the ability to administer a vaccine directly without a standing order. Other nontraditional vaccination settings include grocery stores, senior citizen centers, health departments, mass vaccination clinics, and local corporations; these have been assessed as safe and acceptable sites for pneumococcal and influenza vaccines.113-115 After doctors’ offices, the next most common settings for influenza vaccination are pharmacies, stores (eg, supermarkets), and workplaces.116 To allow adults to be vaccinated directly in their workplaces seems prudent, especially for essential workers likely to be in the first tier for vaccination. Schools, which are trusted institutions present in every community and available on weekends and at night, are an additional candidate location; they were used during mass polio vaccination campaigns.117 In some cases, it also may be acceptable and feasible to deliver vaccination via home visits by community health nurses when vaccination is bundled with delivery of other preventive health services; this approach has received a strong recommendation in the past from the Community Preventive Services Task Force.118 Ensuring that all COVID-19 vaccination sites maintain safe physical distancing practices may require additional planning.

The report also urges vaccine pushers to plan for the “logistics” of using grocery stores as “frontline” sites in a “vaccine rollout.” Here’s the text from the report:

Federal, state, and local health officers and their strategic partners should actively involve experts on preparedness and planning in vaccine rollout preparations as early as possible, given that novel or nontraditional sites for vaccination may become the frontlines of a successful vaccination program. These experts can help coordinate efforts at heterogeneous sites and adapt strategies that suit each site accordingly. For example, the vaccination logistics and rollout at a grocery store site will require different planning and preparation than vaccine rollout in traditional physicians’ offices.

Get ready for the rolling out of an Orwellian medical police state run by fascist vaccine pushers and Big Tech censors

The bottom line in all this? If Biden is elected President and his covid-19 taskforce becomes a reality, America will be transformed into a vaccine-pushing medical police state where you can’t even go to the grocery store or go to church without being harassed by crazed vaccine zealots.

All independent journalism that questions the safety or efficacy of vaccines will be completely banned, and the CDC — using taxpayer money — will roll out an endless stream of pro-vaccine propaganda by hiring famous actors and recording artists to brainwash the masses into getting vaccinated.

This is what happens when you vote for tyrants: You get tyranny.

So roll up your sleeve, Biden supporters, and prepare to be forcibly injected with an experimental, potentially deadly vaccine cocktail that will make the Tuskegee experiments look like a cakewalk.

Blacks and minorities are about to be targeted with the ultimate depopulation weapon: An engineered euthanasia shot called a “vaccine,” that’s so deadly and dangerous, every propaganda trick imaginable has to be used to convince people to take it… even when it’s free.

And if you say no, you won’t be able to buy groceries, go to church, attend a concert, travel by air or even open a bank account. If you continue to resist, don’t worry: They’ll send “isolation teams” to your home to kidnap you and throw you in a CDC concentration camp, where you’ll be “recycled” into biosludge that’s deposited onto the food crops.

It sounds a lot like the Green New Deal, doesn’t it? Except it’s actually the Green New KILL.

Welcome to Covid-1984.

Oregon becomes first state to decriminalize hard drugs like heroin and cocaine~Grants COVID Relief Funds to Strippers, Lap Dancers, Hookers

SEE: https://www.foxnews.com/us/oregon-first-state-decriminalize-hard-drugs-heroin-cocaine;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Oregon became the first state to decriminalize hard drugs like heroin, cocaine and meth in a 59-41% vote as of early Wednesday morning, according to the Associated Press. 

The "Drug Addiction Treatment and Recovery Act" will transition Oregon's drug policy from a punitive, criminal approach to "a humane, cost-effective, health approach."

"People suffering from addiction are more effectively treated with health care services than with criminal punishments," the bill reads. "A health care approach includes a health assessment to figure out the needs of people who are suffering from addiction, and it includes connecting them to the services they need."

MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION SUPPORTERS TOUT ECONOMIC BENEFITS IN NEW VOTER PITCH

Instead of treating drug users as criminals, Oregon will now offer them addiction services funded by marijuana tax revenue, which is more than $100 million a year in the state. 

Only small amounts of drugs are decriminalized, such as less than 1 gram of heroin or MDMA; 2 grams of cocaine or methamphetamine; 12 grams of psilocybin mushrooms; and 40 doses of LSD, oxycodone or methadone.

Criminal penalties for possession of these amounts are replaced with a fine of up to $100, which can be waived if the user is evaluated at Addiction Recovery Centers. 

Crimes that are associated with drug use, such as manufacturing drugs, selling drugs and driving under the influence, are still criminal offenses. 

More than 100 organizations endorsed the measure, including the Oregon Chapter of the American College of Physicians, Oregon Nurses Association, Oregon School Psychologists' Association, Oregon Academy of Family Physicians, the ACLU and others. 

There was also a fair amount of opposition to the measure, with two dozen district attorneys in the state saying the measure “recklessly decriminalizes possession of the most dangerous types of drugs (and) will lead to an increase in acceptability of dangerous drugs.”

Multiple countries in Europe, including Portugal, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, have decriminalized hard drugs without rampant negative effects. 

Portugal decriminalized all drugs in 2001, which did not lead to an increase in drug use, but did result in a dramatic reduction of pathologies associated with drug use, such as sexually transmitted diseases and overdose deaths, according to a 2009 Cato Institue study

2015 European Drug Report also found that Portugal's drug overdose death rate is five times lower than the European Union average. 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Oregon Grants COVID Relief Funds to Strippers, Lap Dancers, 
Hookers 'Who Are Falling Through the Cracks'

The COVID “CARES Act” bailout money is being doled out to Oregon strippers, hookers, and lap dancers. And you thought there might be waste, fraud, and abuse in the system.

Oregon, which may have the nation’s most elastic free speech code, announced that strippers and other “sex workers” are eligible for COVID relief funds because they have nowhere else to turn and are falling through the cracks in the pandemic.

The PDX Stripper Strike, a chapter of the Portland-based Haymarket [Stripper] Pole Collective has been granted $600,000.00 in taxpayer money to give out to black, indigenous, and transgender “sex workers.”

George Soros’s Open Society Foundation, which, besides agitating for legalizing all drugs in Oregon, wants to legalize all sex work. It defines “sex workers” as:

[A]dults who receive money or goods in exchange for consensual sexual services or erotic performances, either regularly or occasionally.

The term “sex worker” recognizes that sex work is work. Prostitution, on the other hand, has connotations of criminality and immorality. Many people who sell sexual services prefer the term “sex worker” and find “prostitute” demeaning and stigmatizing, which contributes to their exclusion from health, legal, and social services.

Please note where your tax dollars will go in Oregon. In addition to helping to pay rent and food bills, the Oregon Health Authority also wants you to know that tax dollars will go toward several important priorities, among them, “professional development” for hookers and strippers.

  • Professional development
  • Education grants
  • Internet service
  • Personal hygiene items
  • A COVID test lap dancers, strippers and hookers can mail in

We have no idea what “professional development” is either.

The PDX Stripper Strike founder, Cat Hollis, told KOIN 6 News that the need is great.

[Sex workers] are suffering right now, and they don’t have anywhere to turn. We’re providing educational grants, professional development grants, and direct aid—rent support, food, and hygiene supplies—to sex workers most impacted by prejudice and COVID. Organizations like ours are the only things keeping sex workers from falling through the cracks.

Donations for the Oregon sex worker relief are also being taken under the auspices of the Young Woman’s Christian Association, also known as the YWCA.

Americans are less likely to comply with another coronavirus lockdown than they were in the spring, with fewer than half saying in a new poll that they're very likely to stay home this time around, according to a new Gallup Poll released as record numbers of cases skyrocket nationwide.

In the poll, taken between Oct. 19 and Nov. 1, 49% of respondents said they'll be very likely to stay home for a month if it's recommended after an outbreak in their communities, reports CNN. This is down from 67% in the spring. 

Another 18% said they are somewhat likely to comply, but a third said they are not likely to obey lockdown orders. 

Americans are also becoming more concerned about the pandemic, and the results concerning those willing to stay home fell along a political divide: 

  • 61% said they believe the situation is getting worse, compared to 40% in April.
  • 40% of Republicans polled said they were willing to comply with a stay-at-home order, down from 74% in the spring.
  • 87% of Democrats said they're likely to comply, down slightly from 91% in March and April.

More people, though, said they feel confident in their ability to keep from getting infected, with 82% saying they're sure of their ability to stay well, compared to 64% in March. 

Meanwhile, the number of people who are wearing masks has gone up sharply. Only about half of Americans reported in April that they were wearing masks, just after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggested wearing them. Now, 88% reported they wear masks, after the number went up to 92% in July. 

The poll also found that fewer Americans are engaging in extreme social distancing than they were in the spring:

  • 38% say they are completely or mostly isolating themselves from non-household members, below the high of 75% recorded in the spring.
  • 27% said they're partially isolating, or having some contact with others.
  • 35% said they're isolating only a bit or not making any attempts to isolate themselves.

Trump Calls New Coronavirus Vaccine “Great News”; Cuomo Says It’s “Good News, Bad News”

BY WARREN MASS

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/trump-calls-new-coronavirus-vaccine-great-news-cuomo-says-its-good-news-bad-news/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Incorporated issued a press release on November 9 stating that Pfizer and the German biotechnology company, BioNTech SE, have developed a vaccine that has been found to be more than 90 percent successful in large-scale trails against the coronavirus. 

The timing of the announcement, six days after the presidential election, brings to mind the timing of the release by Iran of 66 American hostages on January 20, 1981, mere minutes after President Ronald Reagan’s inauguration. The release of the hostages was a major issue during the presidential campaign of 1980, just as the coronavirus pandemic was a major issue during this year’s campaign. If Iran had released the hostages before the 1980 election, and if Pfizer had announced the availability of the vaccine before this year’s election, the outcomes of both elections might have been different.

Following the announcement, veteran journalist Geraldo Rivera tweeted: “If news of #Pfizer miracle vaccine had come just two weeks earlier, the results of the election might have been different. It was the urging & inspiration of @realDonaldTrump that drove the timing of this potentially history-making, life-saving result.”

“Why now?” Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) tweeted shortly after Pfizer announced news of its COVID vaccine.

While such considerations are speculative, the political reactions to the news of the new vaccine are more concrete.

In an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s Good Morning America on November 9, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said he has spoken to other governors about how they can change or possibly block President Trump’s plan to distribute the vaccine so that presidential claimant Joe Biden could do it instead.

“Well, it’s good news, bad news, George,” Cuomo told Stephanopoulos. “The good news is the Pfizer tests look good and we’ll have a vaccine shortly. The bad news is it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over, and that means [the Trump] administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan.”

This is the same Cuomo whose administration, according to a New York Post report on July 8, sent more than 6,300 recovering coronavirus patients into nursing homes during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, leading to numerous deaths. 

While Cuomo expressed mixed feelings about the impending availability of a vaccine that may save thousands of lives, Trump delivered a very positive reaction, tweeting: “STOCK MARKET UP BIG, VACCINE COMING SOON. REPORT 90% EFFECTIVE. SUCH GREAT NEWS!”

Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) tweeted on November 9: “Great work by the administration pushing the historic and unprecedented vaccine development under Operation Warp Speed, even as cynical Democrats attempted to undermine its credibility. Joe Biden’s only plan for the virus is Trump’s plan. Always has been.”

As beneficial as the vaccine may be in stopping the spread of COVID-19, constitutionalists will be certain to stress that any use of it must be voluntary. 

 

New York Bar ASSOCIATION Calls for COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate and Promotion

New York Bar Calls for COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate and Promotion

BY BARBARA CACERES

SEE: https://thevaccinereaction.org/2020/11/new-york-bar-calls-for-covid-19-vaccine-mandate-and-promotion/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Opinion | The New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) House of Delegates approved resolutions on Nov. 7, 2020 that included urging the state to consider mandating a COVID-19 vaccine once “scientific consensus” emerges that it is safe, effective and necessary.1 The NYSBA also called for a number of other legal reforms and public health measures related to COVID-19, such as adopting crisis standards of care, developing resource allocation guidelines, and conducting public awareness campaigns to urge voluntary vaccination.

The resolutions were prepared by the association’s Health Law Section’s Task Force on COVID-19, which published a report in May, 2020 citing Jacobson v. Massachusetts, a 1905 U.S. Supreme Court case that upheld the authority of states to make and enforce compulsory vaccination laws during public health emergencies, as grounds for launching a rapid mass vaccination plan in New York as soon as the federal government has licensed a COVID-19 vaccine.2

New York is Urged to Enact State Emergency Health Powers Act

The resolutions3 also called for the state to enact a state emergency health powers act “drawing upon the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act (MSEHPA), developed by the Center for Law and Public Health at Georgetown and John Hopkins Universities,” as well as to adopt crisis standards of care and resource allocation guidelines.

Model State Emergency Health Powers Act Addressed Bioterrorism Fears

After terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, DC on Sept. 11, 2001, and subsequent threats of biological warfare against U.S. citizens, federal health officials immediately began preparing for mass anthrax and smallpox vaccination campaigns. National vaccination programs targeting civilians, including children, were proposed in model state legislation created by Lawrence Gostin, of the Georgetown Center for Law and the Public’s Health with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The MSEHPA laws proposed to re-write state public health laws to give government health officials sweeping new power over citizens when public health “emergencies” were declared by the Secretary of DHHS or state governors.4

MSEHPA Gives Sweeping New Power to State Health Officials

The MSEHPA, which was passed by many states in 2002, included provisions that would allow state health officials to use the state militia to:  take control of all roads leading into and out of cities and states; seize homes, cars, telephones, computers, food, fuel, clothing, firearms and alcoholic beverages for their own use (and not be held liable if these actions result in the destruction of personal property); and arrest, imprison and forcibly examine, vaccinate and medicate citizens without consent (and not be held liable if these actions result in death or injury).5

As of July 15, 2006, 38 states and Washington, DC have passed a total of 66 bills or resolutions that include provisions from or closely related to the MSEHPA.6

Model Act “replete” with Civil Liberties Violations

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), and organizations on both the right and left of the political spectrum have opposed the Model Act for its lack of informed consent protections and other threats to civil liberties. The ACLU found that the Act is replete with civil liberties problems.7

No System of Checks and Balances

Because public health authorities make mistakes, politicians abuse their power, and there is a history of discriminatory use of the quarantine power against particular groups of people based on race and national origin, there must be a system of checks and balances.  The MSEHPA lets a governor declare a state of emergency unilaterally, fails to provide due process procedures for quarantine and other emergency powers, lacks adequate compensation for seizure of assets, and contains no checks on the power to order forced treatment and vaccination.8

Overbroad Definition of “public health emergency”

The Model Act goes well beyond bioterrorism and includes an overbroad definition of “public health emergency” that sweeps in HIV, AIDS, and other diseases that clearly do not justify quarantine, forced treatment, or any of the other broad emergency authorities that would be granted under the Act.9

Lack of Privacy Protections

The Act requires the disclosure of massive amounts of personally identifiable health information to public health authorities, without requiring basic privacy protections and fair information practices that could easily be added to the bill without detracting from its effectiveness in quelling an outbreak.  The Model Act would undercut existing protections for sensitive medical information that not only threatens to violate individuals’ medical privacy but undermines public trust in government activities.10

Dr. Fauci Told the Truth About COVID-19 Tests in July and Has Been Misleading the Public Ever Since

One of the most frustrating aspects of COVID-19 coverage has been the emphasis on “cases,” reinforced by the Mendacious Midget™, Dr. Anthony Fauci. In fact, he was wringing his hands about rising “case” numbers on CNN in early October. These numbers are actually positive tests. The New York Times and several experts admitted in late August that up to 90% of positive PCR tests were not indicative of the active illness that could be transmitted to others.

As it turns out, Dr. Anthony Fauci expressed a similar opinion in July. As I have reported several times before, the cycle threshold (Ct), or the number of times the test sample is amplified, is too high. According to Just the News, Dr. Fauci acknowledged this in an interview with “This Week in Virology”:

Joining the hosts of This Week in Virology in July, Fauci directly responded to a question about COVID-19 testing, specifically how patients with positive tests might determine whether or not they are actually infectious and need to quarantine.

“What is now sort of evolving into a bit of a standard,” Fauci said, is that “if you get a cycle threshold of 35 or more … the chances of it being replication-confident are minuscule.”

“It’s very frustrating for the patients as well as for the physicians,” he continued, when “somebody comes in, and they repeat their PCR, and it’s like [a] 37 cycle threshold, but you almost never can culture virus from a 37 threshold cycle.”

So, I think if somebody does come in with 37, 38, even 36, you got to say, you know, it’s just dead nucleotides, period.”

He also noted that the Ct count was not provided to patients and physicians automatically. The tests are simply returned as positive or negative. The entire idea of “asymptomatic” cases dissolves once you understand this. Especially when you understand there is a level of immunity in the population because of T-cell reactivity. This is long-term immunity related to exposure to other coronaviruses. People who have this reaction would have the same presentation as a recovered patient.

Obviously, the CDC knew there was an issue with picking up inert viral RNA. In July, the agency discouraged retesting recovered patients who suffered mild-to-moderate illness. Here was the rationale:

Recovered persons can continue to shed detectable SARS-CoV-2 RNA in upper respiratory specimens for up to 3 months after illness onset, albeit at concentrations considerably lower than during illness, in ranges where replication-competent virus has not been reliably recovered and infectiousness is unlikely.

It looks like the FDA was aware of this glitch in the PCR test as well. In the Emergency Use Authorization for Panther Fusion’s COVID-19 PCR test, it noted under “Limitations”:

E. A positive result indicates the detection of nucleic acid from the relevant virus. Nucleic acid may persist even after the virus is no longer viable.

Also:

J. The Panther Fusion SARS-CoV-2 assay may be used to test asymptomatic individuals, although performance has not been demonstrated in an asymptomatic population. This assay has been shown to exhibit high sensitivity when tested with the FDA reference panel.

Granted, Panther is one of many PCR tests. However, The New York Times‘ reporting, the CDC guidelines, and Dr. Fauci’s comments confirm these principles can be applied to PCR testing generally. Experts interviewed by The New York Times suggested a cutoff of 30 Ct would be appropriate. If Dr. Fauci arrived at this conclusion in July, why are labs in the United States still using up to 40 Ct. as the standard when it appears the right Ct is somewhere between 30 and 35?

Dr. Fauci and other “experts” like former FDA Director Dr. Scott Gottlieb are constantly pushing positive tests and lamenting a rise in their numbers. They erroneously refer to these numbers as cases, which they are not under any previous definition. It is also clear there is likely some significant number of false positives. So what gives?

COVID-19 was obviously used as a rhetorical weapon to club President Trump. It became clear late in the election that Dr. Fauci was more political than he portrayed when he essentially endorsed Joe Biden.

Further, some segment of the public health establishment wants widespread vaccination and other policies like mask mandates and rolling lockdowns. High “case” numbers allow them to push these policies. High positive test numbers also create a higher R-naught, which is the measure of contagiousness. These policies are easier to push if the public believes COVID-19 is horribly contagious, making it seem a danger to at-risk loved ones.

Perhaps most deceptive, the Ct is a simple lever to pull to keep you in line and make Joe Biden look like a hero. His new COVID panel will develop and implement a plan. Then positive cases will magically drop. Not because these policies were effective but simply because they will dial down the Ct with clear guidelines.

However, this will cement the supremacy of “experts” in the minds of many Americans who have not seen the dishonest little man behind the curtain. Don’t be one of those people.

AMERICA’S FRONTLINE DOCTORS: DR. SIMONE GOLD ON MISINFORMATION, DISINFORMATION, CENSORSHIP, PROPAGANDA

Propaganda and Censorship: The Antitheses of Freedom

Freedom is a prerequisite to having a fully realized human experience. The primary driver of our work at AFLDS is to help preserve our inalienable human right to freedom by empowering people with truth.

The most effective way to steal people's freedom is to systematically instill fear. The most unobtrusive way to instill fear is via propaganda and censorship. If someone can be convinced that they may not be alive in the future, they might carelessly trade away their right to freedom today. This is such a predictable human response that it is easy to exploit. Throughout 2020 we have watched as fear was deployed through omnipresent propaganda and rampant censorship, and then harnessed to serve a political agenda.

Modern American society is not the first to fall prey to propaganda. As Joseph Goebbels and Adolph Hitler said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” Winston Churchill observed that, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” (And that was before the internet.) Every person must learn how to differentiate truth from fiction. This is such a critical life skill that I teach everyone exactly how to recognize propaganda in real-time in my new book: I Do Not Consent: My Fight Against Medical Cancel Culture. AFLDS reject propaganda in all forms.

In 2020 the disinformation and censorship has been most obvious in the scientific arena. A successful disinformation campaign convinced both ordinary people and physicians to believe that a decades-old safe medication derived from quinine found in tree barks, used billions of times around the world, is dangerous. In fact, HCQ has been used safely and effectively millions of times to treat and prophylaxis patients with and against SARS-CoV-2. America’s Frontline Doctors continue to oppose censorship in all forms.

I am a physician trying to educate patients and an attorney trying to educate everyone. As a Stanford University Law School graduate, I am familiar with the Constitution and election process. There has been tremendous misinformation on social media and flat-out disinformation in the traditional (television) media as to what is transpiring right now. Here are the facts as of November 11, 2020:
-There is no “winner" yet, not because it is unknown, but because it is thus far, unknowable.
-The winner is unknowable until the Courts determine the amount of election fraud.
-The Courts have received a vast amount of hard evidence, data, and affidavits attesting to election fraud.
-Media declarations of a “winner” are wholly irrelevant.
-Media declaring a “winner” causes citizens to lose faith in the process and hardens unjustified entitlements.
-Bush vs. Gore required 37 days of excruciating transparency, with all media and bipartisan observers witnessing and video memorializing every moment of the process.
-The media insisted on referring to Gore as President-Elect Gore. Right up until he conceded.

President Ronald Reagan taught: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

May we all continue to: think clearly, discern cautiously, and trust intuitively. Only those in possession of truth can find freedom. God bless you, and God bless America.

Dr. Simone Gold

Dear Fellow Patriots,

A cancer is threatening America. The cancer is censorship and propaganda. The inherently convincing nature of propaganda enables its success, and history teaches that propaganda is most effective in combination with censorship. Today in our country we are witnessing both.

America was founded upon the idea that every human is born free, with the right to speak freely, share ideas, assemble in groups, and our Founders guaranteed that if we the people consent to be governed, the government would not interfere with these inalienable rights. That is the First Amendment of the United States of America.

People ask me how America’s Frontline Doctors came to be, and it is because I saw that censorship was literally killing people. Patients were so dis-informed that they were prejudiced against a safe, decades-old, generic medication used worldwide many billions of times for 65 years. Most doctors were no better.

First there was misinformation. Then disinformation. Then censorship. At the time I am writing this there are >130 studies showing HCQ is effective against SARS-CoV-2, and there is abundant evidence that SARS-CoV-2 is treatable and almost never lethal. And yet due to the massive disinformation campaign, people continue to be afraid, continue to believe there is no early treatment, and continue to believe masks prevent the transmission of a virus 1/1000 the size of a hair (0.1 micron.)

For ‘We the People’ to eradicate the cancer metastasizing in the life-blood of America, we must each do our part to defend our first amendment. AFLDS bring you physicians and scientists speaking about science and medicine, and we have become one of the most censored entities on social media. AFLDS oppose censorship in all forms, in all ways, at all times. Big Tech Censorship poses an existential threat to all mankind.

Join us, and rise up with confidence in the knowledge that God granted you a right to speak, learn, and share. Please DONATE to AFLDS to help us continue defending freedom. To us, this election is about stopping censorship. God bless you, and God bless America.

Blessings of freedom and good health,

Dr. Simone Gold

“Fire Fauci!” Why Trump should dump him, sooner rather than later

BY LLOYD BILLINGSLEY

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/11/fire-fauci-lloyd-billingsley/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

During a Florida campaign rally on Sunday, Trump supporters urged the president to “Fire Fauci,” of the White House coronavirus task force, who has held forth at the National Institute of Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984.

“I appreciate the advice,” President Trump told the crowd, but “let me wait until a little bit after the election.” A month before the election, as it happens, Fauci helped make the case for his own dismissal.

“The fact is that we’ve got to make sure that we have a health care system where no one can go without necessary health care and quality health care. I think there’s this concern that if you make it universal, the quality will go down. It doesn’t necessarily have to go down at all. But when people fall between the cracks of health care, then you get an even more difficult situation than the outbreak itself poses.”

That was Fauci at a UC Berkeley Forum in early October, in a pitch for a “universal” system, the brand of government monopoly health care Democrats want. According to Fauci, not having government health care is worse than the difficulties of “the outbreak.” The diminutive NIAID boss wasn’t done.

“Covid-19 is a very bright light on the social determinants of health that have been there all along, that we don’t pay a lot of attention to, and that are, in essence, killing minorities,” Fauci said. “I would hope that the terrible experience that we’re going through now galvanizes and energizes us to make a decades long commitment to doing things about these social determinants of health, which are reversible, but they’re not reversible overnight or in one or two years.”

Fauci did not chart the science behind the “social determinants” of health and how, exactly, they are “killing minorities.” Neither did he outline what “things” would have to be done over a long period of time. Fauci did say that even if a vaccine were “available now,” he wouldn’t expect life to look “normal” again until at least the second half of 2021. The science behind the Fauci’s prophecy did not emerge in the forum, in effect a campaign ad for Joe Biden.

Fauci is routinely hailed as the nation’s top infectious disease expert even though his bio shows no advanced degrees in molecular biology. Dr. Fauci laments “anti-science bias,” and complains that people “don’t believe in authority,” a thinly disguised demand for unquestioned belief in Dr. Anthony Fauci his own self.

Fauci has admitted to lying about the need for masks and his pronouncements avoid hard data on the mortality rate, death rate, recovery rate and so forth. The NIAID boss is also quiet on “gain of function” (GOF) research which “improves the ability of a pathogen to cause disease.” According to the National Institutes of Health Office of Science Policy, GOF has “the potential to enhance the pathogenicity or transmissibility of potential pandemic pathogens (PPPs)” and has thus “raised biosafety and biosecurity concerns.”

As Talha Birk noted in The Lancet, the NIH banned GOF research in 2014 but revived it in 2017 over the objection of many scientists. Fauci defends GOF research and in 2019 NIAID funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology with nearly $4 million for GOF research on bat coronaviruses. The transfer of U.S. taxpayer dollars to a Chinese lab makes it a public issue but media and government have yet to press Fauci on what he knew and when he knew it. Like Hunter Biden’s laptop, the authoritarian Dr. Fauci enjoys complete immunity from the establishment media.

According to Fauci the pro-China WHO boss Tedros is a “really an outstanding person,” and Dr. Fauci holds similar views of himself. “With all due modesty, I think I’m pretty effective,” Fauci told interviewer Norah O’Donnell of CBS in a July 15 interview with InStyle.  “I certainly am energetic. And I think everybody thinks I’m doing more than an outstanding job.” Like Eve Rand in Being There, Fauci reveals himself to himself and he is drenched and purged.

Fauci’s October forum did not include Peter Duesberg, former professor of cell biology at UC Berkeley and author of Inventing the AIDS Virus, highly informative on the history of virology and other scientific matters. Duesberg, a world-class virologist, found no evidence that HIV causes AIDS. Fauci relentlessly attacked Duesberg, and even got him canceled from media appearances.

AIDS never ravaged the heterosexual community as Fauci prophecied, yet Fauci remained at the helm of NIAID. “Deep state fraud” Fauci is now the Democrats’ Lysenko and the major mouthpiece for the white coat supremacy Democrats seek to impose.

President Trump has good cause to fire Fauci at first opportunity. On the other hand, as Marlon Brando said in On the Waterfront, there’s “a lot more” to this than anybody thought.

Why did Fauci support the dangerous GOF research his own NIH banned? What was going on at the Wuhan Institute of Virology? What does Dr. Anthony Fauci know that he isn’t telling? With all the death and damage from the China virus, the people have a right to know. As President Trump says, we’ll see what happens.

 

COVID-19: Scientists and Doctors Call for Return to Normal Life in The Great Barrington Declaration

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • On Oct. 6, 2020, an international group of scientists, doctors and other medical professionals issued a petition, The Great Barrington Declaration (GBD), challenging the wisdom of current restrictive public health strategies employed by governments for addressing COVID-19.
  • The GBD signatories called for “focused protection” that commits resources to protecting vulnerable populations, allowing most people to return to normal life.
  • The scientists and medical professionals signing the GBD point out that potential ramifications of current strategies include long-term mental health issues, worsening cardiovascular
    disease and other pre-existing conditions, significant financial hardship and increased incidence of domestic partner and child abuse.

On Oct. 6, 2020, an international coalition of scientists, doctors and medical professionals created and signed a document they titled The Great Barrington Declaration (GBD), which was named for the Massachusetts town where organizers gathered and in which the petition was signed.1 By the end of October, the Declaration had already secured signatures from 10,233 scientists, 27,860 medical professionals and 504,875 concerned citizens.2

In the document, infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists from all over the world expressed their deep concern about the potential negative repercussions of lockdown measures imposed by governments in the wake of COVID-19 and called for a global policy change to what they call “focused protection.”

The Great Barrington Declaration Highlights Negative Effects of Lockdowns

The creators of the GBD3 maintain that “current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health,” including fewer healthcare screening visits, worse outcomes for cardiovascular disease and other pre-existing conditions, and serious effects on mental health. Stating that “vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is more than a thousand-fold higher in the old and infirm than the young” and further, that “for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza,” the authors recommend measures be put in place to protect vulnerable segments of society, while allowing all others to immediately return to normal life.

Specifically, they suggest that nursing home staff should be limited to those with acquired immunity, staff rotation should be minimized and all staff and visitors should be frequently tested.  Groceries and other essentials should be delivered to elderly who live in the community and the vulnerable should interact with people outside whenever possible. For everyone else, the authors recommend that:

  • schools and universities should immediately reopen for in-person
    attendance, including all extracurricular activities;
  • businesses and restaurants should open fully;
  • art, music, sports and other group events should resume; and
  • young low-risk adults should return to work instead of working from home.

Martin Kulldorff, PhD, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and one of the three initial signatories of the GBD said, “As a public-health scientist, it is stunning to see how focused people are on this one disease and on the short term.” He argues that public health policy must focus on health as a whole, including all diseases, and should take a long view rather than opting for a short-term solution.

Dr. Kulldorff also asserted his belief that even if we choose to focus on COVID-19 alone, the lockdowns and isolations do not make sense:

We sought to flatten the curve in the spring so as not to overload hospitals, and that succeeded in almost every country. But trying to suppress the disease with contact tracing, testing and isolation, together with severe lockdowns, is not going to solve the problem. It will just push things into the future.4

Pointing at Sweden—which did not impose strict lockdown measures for the past year—as an example of the economic and social benefits of a more relaxed approach to protective measures, he stressed that COVID-19 is much less serious than seasonal influenza for children. Breaking down statistics on Sweden’s 5,900 COVID-19 deaths as of Oct. 22, 2020, only two occurred in children under age 9, while 4,004 deaths were in people ages 80 and above.5

Others Argue That Lower Risk of COVID-19 Does Not Mean No Risk

Some argue that, while older people are more likely to experience severe symptoms or to die from COVID-19, children and young people are not immune to infection, even serious infection.6 The CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report found that more than 20 percent of confirmed cases during the summer months occurred in people between 20 and 29 years of age. For the week of Sept. 28, the National Center for Health Statistics reported 1,800 COVID-19-related deaths in people under age 35, with 419 of those in young people under age 25. They also reported that 851 children under age 18 have been hospitalized with severe disease. Those numbers are updated every week and, as of Oct. 22, there have been 2,090 reported deaths involving COVID-19 in Americans under age 35, with 462 in individuals under age 25.7

Long-Term Damage Expected from COVID-19 Restrictions

Most experts agree that lockdowns are expected to have major long-term socio-economic consequences for populations. A U.N. report focusing on the impact on children and young people warned that, “All children, of all ages, and in all countries, are being affected, in particular by the socio-economic impacts and, in some cases, by mitigation measures that may inadvertently do more harm than good,” and, further, that “the impact will be life-long.” Analysis of data from more than 60 pre-existing, peer-reviewed studies indicated a strong association between loneliness and future mental health issues in young people, suggesting that the duration of loneliness had a greater impact than degree.8

Looking at current pandemic strategies, Dr. Kulldorff also pointed out that lockdown measures disproportionately affect the working class, who may not be able to work (restaurant staff for example, if their place of business is closed) or are unable to work or isolate at home (such as those in service industries). In this way, Kulldorff argues, we are effectively “throwing the working class under the bus,” while protecting the more privileged such as college students and business professionals who can more easily work from home.9

Mental Health and Economic Repercussions from COVID-19 Lockdowns

Decreases in preventive care and screening visits, increases in risk for mental health issues, significant financial losses and the potential collapse of many restaurants and small businesses that may be unable to rebound are not the only ramifications of isolation and lockdown policies. There also has been a sharp uptick in both the number and severity of incidents of intimate partner violence (IPV) during the pandemic compared to the three years prior, with increases in calls to domestic abuse helplines reported worldwide. 10

Some of the factors identified during COVID-19 lockdowns as potential stressors that could lead to increased domestic violence include socioeconomic instability, avoidance of healthcare facilities due to fear of catching the virus, lack of community support, increased substance abuse and more time spent at home with partners. 11

During this same period, the National Children’s Alliance (NCA), reporting for more than 900 children’s advocacy centers (CACs) across the U.S., says they have seen 21 percent fewer child abuse cases in this year, correlating to about 40,000 fewer children served compared to the same period last year. Child safety advocates attribute the change to an underreporting of abuse in the face of
COVID-19. As NCA Executive Director Teresa Huizar put it:

It really did exemplify our worst fears, which is that kids are home and that they were outside the view line in many cases of trusted adults and teachers and counselors and coaches and physicians―all the folks who normally are making reports as mandated reporters.12

In the words of Dr. Kulldorff in advocating for the GBD, the strategies to try to contain and combat COVID-19 have amounted to “a unique experiment, and it’s a terrible experiment… in a short time, we are throwing all the principles of public health out the window.”13 Those who have signed the GBD and others maintain that COVID-19 will always be with us and that we must use traditional, more balanced public health strategies, while adapting to living with the new coronavirus until populations acquire immunity and the disease becomes less virulent.

In Minden, Ontario, on July 15, a man assaulted a grocery store employee after being told to wear a mask and was later shot to death after a confrontation with police in his home. One of the employees said later that they shouldn’t have to enforce government rules. “If we didn't have to force him and tell him that he couldn't come into the store, nothing would have happened, really. He would have got his groceries and went along with his day” (“OPP shoot man dead hours after mask dispute,” CBC.ca, Jul. 15, 2020).

Another mother was kicked off the same flight with her young son for sticking up for the first mother (“Mom traveling with 6 kids kicked off,” ABC News, Aug. 21, 2020).

Former Navy Seal Robert O’Neill, one of the nation’s brave heroes who participated in the raid that killed mass murderer Osama Bin Laden, was banned from flying on Delta on August 20 after he tweeted a selfie of himself not wearing a mask on a Delta flight, calling masks “dumb.” Even though he was eating and drinking at the time and airline policy does not require wearing a mask for such an activity, he was perhaps targeted for his jocular attitude against masking.

On August 31, there was a shootout at a Family Dollar store in St. Louis after employees told two customers that they must wear masks according to a city ordinance. One of the customers shot at an employee, who returned fire and wounded the man (“Missouri man shot,” Fox News, Sept. 5, 2020).

On October 3, the office of California Gov. Gavin Newsom sent out a tweet urging restaurant-goers, “Don’t forget to keep your mask on in between bites. Do your part to keep those around you healthy.”

On October 19, a woman punched a Delta flight attendant on route from Atlanta to Miami after the attendant told her and her boyfriend to wear a face mask (“Woman incorrectly wearing face mask throws punches,” The Daily Caller, Oct. 20, 2020).

On October 25, Delta Airlines sent a memo to its employees stating that 460 people have been added to its no-fly list for refusing to comply with their mask regulation. The list is typically reserved for suspected terrorists.

On October 25, two women stabbed an employee of a store 27 times and kicked him in the head after he asked them to wear a mask. The event took place in a Snipes record store in Chicago (“Sisters allegedly hold down, stab guard,” Chicago Sun-Times, Oct. 27, 2020). The employee was stabbed in the arms, back, and chest with a small knife and survived.

 

CDC Admits: No Conclusive Evidence Cloth Masks Work Against COVID

In a recent report in Emerging Infectious Diseases, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests what experts have stated all along: There is no conclusive evidence that cloth masks protects users from coronavirus, especially since most people do not use them correctly and do not keep them clean.

The report states:

More research on cloth masks is needed to inform their use as an alternative to surgical masks/respirators in the event of shortage or high-demand situations. To our knowledge, only 1 randomized controlled trial has been conducted to examine the efficacy of cloth masks in healthcare settings, and the results do not favor use of cloth masks.

More randomized controlled trials should be conducted in community settings to test the efficacy of cloth masks against respiratory infections.

There is increasing evidence that cloth masks not only may be ineffective against stopping coronavirus transmission, but that they may actually increase the spread of the virus, as well as worsening other health conditions.

A September report by the CDC found that more than 70 percent of COVID-positive patients contracted the virus in spite of faithful mask wearing while in public. Moreover, 14 percent of the patients who said they “often” wore masks were also infected. Meanwhile, just four percent of the COVID-positive patients said they “never” wore masks in the 14 days before the onset of their illness.

Likewise, the CDC’s October journal report references a 2015 study on cloth mask efficacy that found that rates of infection were “consistently higher” among those in the cloth mask group versus that of the medical mask and control groups. The authors of the study suggested it was likely that the cloth masks were problematic because they retained moisture and had poor filtration.

The CDC writes of that study, “This finding suggest that risk for infection was higher for those wearing cloth masks.”

The California Globe also observed that extensive randomized control trial (RCT) studies and meta-analysis reviews of those studies have shown that masks and respirators are ineffective against the spread of influenza-like illnesses and respiratory illnesses believed to be spread by droplet and aerosol particles. The Globe cited an analysis of 10 “randomized controlled tests” (RCTs) by the Center for Disease Control found “no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks.”

“There is limited evidence for their [masks] effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission,” the studies found. This applied to masks “worn by the infected person for source control OR when worn by uninfected persons.” They concluded that there was “no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.”

Yet the CDC continues to recommend cloth masks for public use, even as the organization has flip-flopped on whether the virus is airborne. Their latest assertion is that airborne transmission is “sometimes” possible “under special circumstances.”

However, some experts have been sounding the alarm on the widespread use of masks, asserting they may cause more harm than good.

In fact, a group of doctors in Oklahoma is suing the Tulsa mayor and the Tulsa Health Department over the city’s mask mandate, asserting masks cause healthy people to become sick.

“On the OSHA website it states that employers shouldn’t make employees work in an environment where they have less than a 19.5 percent oxygen level,” said Clayton Clark, one of the plaintiffs. “And the mandated masks cause employees to dip below a 19.5 percent oxygen level within 10 seconds of wearing a mask, so I don’t want to make my healthy employees sick.”

Another plaintiff, Dr. James Meehan, MD, said he has seen an increase in patients with facial rashes, as well as fungal and bacterial infections, and has heard from colleagues around the globe that bacterial pneumonia is on the rise. He asserts this increase stems directly from mask wearing.

“Why might that be? Because untrained members of the public are wearing medical masks, repeatedly … in a non-sterile fashion…. They’re becoming contaminated,” he said at an August press conference. “They’re pulling them off of their car seat, off the rearview mirror, out of their pocket, from their countertop, and they’re reapplying a mask that should be worn fresh and sterile every single time.”

“New research is showing that cloth masks may be increasing the aerosolization of the SARS-COV-2 virus into the environment causing an increased transmission of the disease,” he added.

Dentists have also reported increases in oral hygiene issues, which they have dubbed “mask mouth.”

“We’re seeing inflammation in people’s gums that have been healthy forever, and cavities in people who have never had them before,” says Dr. Rob Ramondi, a dentist and co-founder of One Manhattan Dental. “About 50% of our patients are being impacted by this, [so] we decided to name it ‘mask mouth’ — after ‘meth mouth.’”

On the other hand, Sweden has declared virtual victory over the coronavirus, absent any draconian responses to the pandemic such as mask mandates and lockdowns, opting instead for “herd immunity.”

“Sweden has gone from being the country with the most infections in Europe to the safest one,” Sweden’s senior epidemiologist Dr. Anders Tegnell told Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.

“The findings that have been produced through face masks are astonishingly weak, even though so many people around the world wear them,” Tengell states.

The European Center for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed Sweden’s reduction in infection rates, with just 12 cases per million, Summit News reported.

Reports by the CDC reveal that just six percent of reported COVID-19 deaths came directly from the virus, while a whopping 94 percent of the deaths attributed to the coronavirus were from people who had two to three serious underlying conditions, in addition to COVID-19.

 

NORTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR Roy Cooper Teamed Up With Chinese Communist to Extract Blood from RNC Attendees

According to a letter written to Roy Cooper by one of his Chinese Communist allies, John “Gaorong” Wei, the Communist allies urged Cooper to extract blood from people who planned to attend the RNC which was slated to be held in Charlotte, NC earlier this year. Part of the letter reads,

“Before performing laboratory testing, we can mix blood or swabs collected from 10, or 20, or even 100 people and test them together. During the test, if a group is negative, we can give the whole Groups of people issue passes to work. If a certain group of samples are tested positive, all the people in this group are notified to come back for an individual test. Only when a certain group of samples are positive, an individual test is required. In this way, we It can test millions of people in just a few days (driver’s license can be the ID of a pass), effectively screening out virus carriers.”

The following is reported by the National File:

NATIONAL FILE — A key ally and appointee of North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper, with close ties to Communist Chinese officials and influence groups, advised the Governor to extract blood from all 50,000 of the 2020 RNC’s planned attendees before allowing President Trump’s nomination to take place in Charlotte.

This astonishing revelation was recently disclosed to National File in a copy of a letter written by John “Gaorong” Wei (who also goes by the name of Lao Wei) addressed to Governor Cooper and North Carolina DHHS head Mandy Cohen.

Wei’s plan, discovered on a Chinese language website, called for the blood of all 50,000 RNC delegates to be drawn and mixed together in groups of up to 100 before being tested for COVID-19. If the blood of any group members triggered a positive test, the entire group would be quarantined and barred from the convention.

The plan could even be used on citizens statewide Wei wrote, telling the Governor that using group blood samples to determine who would be allowed to return to work would “speed up our North Carolina Phase III reopening.”
