Director of CDC doesn’t know how many CDC employees are vaxxed…and obviously doesn’t care

Cities have demanded residents be vaxxed to be in public buildings. So have schools. So have some retailers. And airlines, and other entertainment and transportation venues.

Then there are states’ requirements for the same thing.

And Joe Biden’s looming requirement, through OSHA, that employees of all companies with 100 or more workers take the treatment. And there are rumors about that applying to smaller companies too.

But workers at the Centers for Disease Control? The federal agency that has been monitoring, analyzing and promoting safety in light of COVID-19’s threats?

The director has no idea now many workers are vaxxed.

Rochelle Walensky, who was appointed by Biden to run the CDC, was asked by Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-La., what percent of her workers are vaccinated.

First attempting the dodge route, she said, “We’re actively encouraging vaccination on all of our employees and doing a lot of education and outreach in order to get our agency fully vaccinated,” she responded.

“The percent?” the congressman said.

“I don’t have that for you today,” she said.

There you have it: The head of the government agency that has unilaterally made itself an enforcer of the nation’s pandemic response can’t (or won’t) even follow its own vaccine guidance.

Elite athlete tells of serious vaccine injury and doctor’s ignorance

Kyle Warner was 29 years old and at the peak of his career as a professional mountain bike racer when, in June 2021, he got his second dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot. He suffered a reaction so severe that, as of October, he was still spending days in bed, easily overwhelmed by too much mental or physical exertion.

Warner shared his detailed experience with John Campbell, a retired nurse and teacher based in England, and headed to Washington, D.C., in early November 2021 to get the word out that COVID-19 shots aren’t always as safe as you have been led to believe. Even someone in their 20s, in peak physical form, can be severely harmed, which is why Warner is also speaking out against vaccine mandates.

“I believe where there is risk, there needs to be choice,” he said. But right now, people are being misled. “People are being coerced into making a decision based on lack of information versus being convinced of a decision based on total information transparency.”

Warner wanted to be able to travel internationally, so he decided to get a COVID-19 shot. He received his first dose of the Pfizer jab in mid-May 2021, suffering only a sore arm afterward. After his second dose on June 10, his arm wasn’t even sore, so he thought he got off easy.

But there was a strange symptom that occurred within seconds that may have been the clue that something was very wrong. “As soon as they injected it, I had a weird metallic saline taste in my mouth. I asked the guy, ‘Is that normal?’ and he said no, they don’t hear of that much.” According to Campbell:

“The fact that the clinician doesn’t recognize that a metallic taste in the mouth could be a sign of an inadvertent intravascular administration concerns me because what happens is if the vaccine goes into your muscle, then it stays in your muscle, and it’s going to take half an hour to be systemically absorbed at all, or much longer than that. But if it goes into a vessel, you get a metallic taste straight away …

The fact that you could taste that straight away is, to me, very suspicious of them inadvertently giving that into a blood vessel … Basically you’re having the inflammatory reaction in your heart and in your joints instead of in your arm.”

A day or two later, with no sore arm, he thought it was going to be easier than the first dose, but about two weeks later he started having strange reactions in his heart. Throughout the day, he started experiencing periods of accelerated heart rate. As a professional athlete, Warner is very in-tune with his body.

He regularly wears a smart watch that tracks his heart rate and knows what’s normal for him — and this was not. While sitting at rest, his heart rate would spike to the 90s and over 100. He decided to cut out all stimulants like caffeine, just in case, and took two weeks off from riding because he didn’t feel good.

After the break, he attempted to go for a ride and his heart rate spiked to 160 and remained elevated. Feeling weak and nauseous, he had his friend take him to the emergency room. He told the ER doctor that he’d heard about myocarditis as a side effect with the mRNA injections and he thought he was having this reaction. They completely brushed him off, telling him that he was not having that reaction but, instead, was having an anxiety attack.

After being told that his problem didn’t make him a priority to be seen, he sat in the waiting room for 3.5 hours and was ultimately given a shot of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug Toradol to treat reactive arthritis. His heart rate dropped down to 110, leading the doctor to tell him he was doing better, but he was still at nearly double his average heart rate.

The doctor’s solution was to refer him to a psychiatrist for what he described as a “psychotic episode.” According to Warner, since he suggested that his reaction was from the shot, the health care practitioners thought he was imagining things or “trying to be anti-vaxx or a conspiracy theorist.” Four days later, he ended up in the hospital again.

Days after being sent home from the ER, Warner again had problems with his heart — this time, a strong squeezing sensation along with cramping and burning. He went to a different hospital where they took his concern seriously, said it could be myocarditis — an inflammation of the heart muscle — and referred him to a cardiologist.

It’s since been recognized that myocarditis and pericarditis, inflammation of the outer lining of the heart, are occurring after COVID-19 shots, most often after the second dose in male adolescents and young adults. The cardiologist diagnosed Warner with pericarditis along with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and reactive arthritis.

POTS is a blood circulation disorder that affects the autonomic nervous system and can be triggered by injections, including mRNA COVID-19 shots. One of the key symptoms of POTS is a significant increase in heart rate when a person stands up, and the elevated heart rate remains elevated for a longer than normal period. Fatigue, nausea, dizziness, heart palpitations and exercise intolerance can also occur.

As a professional biker, Warner has had his share of injuries, although prior to the shot he wasn’t in any pain and all of his injuries had healed. After the second dose of the jab, however, he felt like all of his old injuries were reactivated and became painful again. His wrists, for instance, became so painful that he couldn’t put his seatbelt on.

For four months now, Warner has been so ill that he hasn’t been able to work. Even mental exertion can cause him to relapse physically. When he has a “good” day and overdoes it, he ends up in pain again for the next few days. Even reading too much makes him feel drained.

His symptoms of pericarditis have cleared, but he’s still struggling with the symptoms of reactive arthritis and POTS, which can last for 12 to 18 months or more. And Warner, being very fit and accustomed to listening to his body, caught the problem early — many others may not.

While health officials have begun to acknowledge myocarditis following COVID-19 shots, there are many other adverse events that are still being ignored. Neuroinflammation, severe headaches, epilepsy and even blindness have been reported, Warner said. While an increasing number of people are calling for support for those who have been injured, U.S. law is set up to protect drug companies with a complete liability shield.

In the U.S., vaccine makers already have something of a “free pass” when it comes to vaccine injury liability and lawsuits through the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 and the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act, passed in 2005. The 1986 Act established a federal no-fault vaccine injury compensation program (VICP) as an administrative alternative to a lawsuit for injuries caused by vaccines recommended by the CDC for children.

Contested vaccine injury claims are adjudicated by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C., and there is a trust fund out of which claims are paid, sparing insurance companies representing vaccine makers and vaccine providers from costly payouts for vaccine injuries and deaths.

Only reactions to routinely recommended vaccines may be heard in this “vaccine court,” however, which doesn’t apply to COVID-19 shots, which are being routed through the obscure Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program. The bottom line, sadly, is this, as noted by NVIC’s Barbara Loe Fisher:

“If you or a loved one dies or is permanently injured by an experimental or … [recently] licensed COVID vaccine, you cannot sue the drug company who made it, even if there is evidence the company could have made it less reactive or more effective.”

As simply as we can state it: We are heading for a period in which your earthly survival could be in doubt…which means you should be prepared to deal with circumstances you have never dealt with before

Here’s what we are referring to:

ONE: Joe Biden is unfit for the office he holds. He appears not to be able to tie his own shoes, let alone lead the country. Not only is he making it up as he goes along (because he has not, or cannot, devise a plan to follow), but most of his Democrat horde have no plan to follow either. By and large the Democrats do not care about your survival or that of the USA. The only survival they care about is their own. If you want to know what “making it up as they go along” looks like, just analyze (if you can) our recent exit from Afghanistan. If you want to know what “we don’t care about you” looks like, consider the last US election, in which Democrats engineered a huge election fraud to be sure of a win. Fraudulent ballots, rigged voting machines, you name it. Look at the Democrats’ unwavering support for abortion, in which “we don’t care about you” translates into “we don’t care about your family or your pregnancy.” Democrats are, by and large, a completely Godless bunch. (No God = HUGE mistake.) When you refuse to see God in the world around you, you are not looking past the end of your nose in any given situation.

TWO: Our economy is starting to come apart at the seams. Joe Biden entered the Oval Office ten months ago. If there was any reason for optimism then, it has long disappeared into the ether in which Biden now operates. Airlines are now cancelling flights because the pilots are calling in sick by the hundreds in protest of Biden’s COVID vaccine mandates. Truck drivers are doing the same, and for the same reason, which means you can’t find things in the stores. Bare shelves last year meant people were buying to hoard; bare shelves now mean goods can’t be delivered to stores and warehouses and distribution centers. Gasoline and natural gas are going up in price along with lots of other things like food…which means we could have a long and very stressful winter ahead of us. We have literally millions of jobs available now in the US, but employers cannot find people who want them. Why? The main reason is that our unemployment benefits are so generous that people are making more money not working than when they actually do work. Another reason is that many people found that working from home was not such a bad thing after all, and they are finding alternative ways to get paid working from home. All Biden wants you to do is get a COVID vaccine shot; he seems not to care about anything else. He certainly doesn’t care that people by the tens of thousands are dying from these shots. (Total deaths in the USA from the COVID vaccines are now estimated at well over 200,000. And you wonder why pilots and truck drivers are protesting about mandates?) If Biden keeps forcing people to get the shots, we could see millions of able-bodied workers out on the street. We could see military and law enforcement personnel joining them. Things could start to look pretty ugly where you live.

THREE: The world’s economy is beginning to look pretty shaky, too. Energy supplies are dwindling in countries all over the globe. Coal is hard to find in India, and electricity blackouts will soon follow. Natural gas is way up in price all over Europe. Electricity is being rationed in China, and many companies cannot maintain production as a result. Gasoline in the US has gone from $1.72 a gallon last April to $3.25 now. What will all this look like when we get into the highest energy demand months of the coming winter?

Here’s the bottom line: When things begin to look dark, it’s not because the light isn’t shining, it’s that people refuse to see the light. The Bible has been available for centuries in hundreds of languages. God has told us very clearly what is coming, and we refuse to believe Him. Since the beginning of time, we’ve had two choices, either to follow God’s plan or our own. When you read the Bible, you come to the understanding that God knows the future before it gets here. Us? We don’t even know how to get out of Afghanistan.

America’s national security and the disastrous Afghanistan evacuation

What Joe Biden did to our national security has yet to be fully determined…but we all watched as he gave control of Afghanistan, and control over many American lives, to the Taliban. America’s longest war ended in a stunning surrender.

Seeing the complete weakness of the Biden administration, the Taliban dictated terms to the US and demanded all American forces leave the country by the end of August. Biden and Blinken and Sullivan and other senior administration officials tried to spin one of the worst geopolitical humiliations in US history as the rest of the world saw reports of rapes and murders occurring where the Taliban assured us we would see “moderation” in their takeover.

Taliban leaders, recognizing the chaos which engulfed Kabul, offered to let the US military take control of the city to evacuate Americans and other green card holders. Biden, however, refused to change his plans and thereby restricted any American presence to the Kabul airport, and the entire world watched the calamity which followed.

Here are seven takeaways from the Afghanistan disaster as we try to move beyond the crisis.

ONE. The terrorist threat is back in a big way. Twenty years after 9/11, not only do the Taliban control Afghanistan again, but Al Qaeda still exists and ISIS is showing resurgence. Under Donald Trump’s leadership the US military destroyed the ISIS caliphate in Iraq and Syria and killed many high-profile terrorist leaders. When Biden took office we had not heard a threat from ISIS for years, and a relatively small US contingent in Afghanistan had held the Taliban at bay for more than 18 months without a single American military death. Biden’s chaotic retreat and evacuation have reversed that progress while also threatening Trump’s Abraham Accords. And we evacuated without $85 billion worth of military equipment and hardware which we simply left for ISIS and the Taliban to pick up and use against us.

TWO. The failure of US leadership has emboldened all of our adversaries. North Korea restarted one of its nuclear reactors. Iran is seeking new ways to assert itself all over the Middle East. China is moving into Afghanistan to fill the vacuum the USA left behind, and is threatening Taiwan in ways they never would have tried when we had an active military presence in the area. China rushed to call our “Afghan abandonment” a “lesson for Taiwan” and told the world it was not just a military failure but a failure of the entire American governmental system and way of life. The message is pretty clear: Biden’s huge failure in Afghanistan has reinvigorated our enemies and invited them to challenge us in ways unimaginable up to now.

THREE. Biden’s “national security team” is so dysfunctional it might as well be non-existent. As Kabul was being overrun by the Taliban, Biden was locked away at Camp David and afraid to address the nation. When he finally did, he found blame in everyone but himself. Repeatedly he refused to take questions from reporters, and his lack of leadership caused public statements from his administration to be contradictory, confusing, and conflicting. All this from a man who ran for office by saying it was time to put “adults” back in charge of our government.

FOUR. The US military has been gravely weakened by an administration which puts “wokeness” ahead of winning wars. Immediately after Biden’s inauguration, his new defense secretary, Lloyd Austin, said that climate change would now be a priority in national security. General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Congress he wanted to understand “white rage.” The admiral who was Chief of Naval Operations recommended a book for the Navy which teaches that America is an irredeemably corrupt, evil, and racist nation. Is it any wonder the USA doesn’t know how to win wars today?

FIVE. Biden’s administration is a disaster for our allies around the world. America’s relationships with its allies are at a low point. Biden abandoned Afghanistan in the middle of the night with no coordination among our NATO partners, putting countless lives at risk. Biden did not return calls from Britain’s PM for days on end, and the British Parliament finally voted to hold America’s president “in contempt.”

SIX. Our liberal elitists are more focused on attacking Trump supporters than defeating our enemies. Biden’s Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin right before the Afghan catastrophe telling us that vaccine skeptics and citizens concerned about election integrity were domestic terrorists. Democrats, instead of paying attention to America’s defense needs, stayed busy trying to build the events of January 6th into a way to shame the 74-plus million Americans who voted for Trump. Democrats managed to express mild outrage at Biden’s missteps only when it was far too late to offer any guidance.

SEVEN. Despite Biden’s failed presidency, America remains strong. Biden’s poll numbers today are absolutely dismal, to the point where both Dems and the media have been criticizing him. He has shown not just woeful incompetence, but a complete lack of leadership. Thanks to Donald Trump, we still have a strong military fighting force, but it too needs good leadership. The best thing American voters can do is plan for a transition in 2022 and 2024 to good leadership, and then support it.

Are COVID-19 shots safe for pregnant women?

The CDC released more data today into VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) which shows that there are now 1,969 fetal deaths among pregnant women who received a COVID-19 shot. (Source.)

By way of contrast, the exact same search in VAERS for all non-COVID-19 vaccines for the past 30 years returned a result of 2,183 fetal deaths from pregnant women following vaccination for the past 30 years. (Source.)

So there have been nearly the same amount of fetal deaths following COVID-19 shots during the past 10 months, as there have been for the past 30+ years that VAERS has been in existence!

And how has the CDC responded to this data?

This past week the CDC published recommendations for all pregnant women to get a COVID-19 shot!

Everyone acknowledges and agrees that VAERS is vastly under-reported, but now we have an expert analysis on just how under-reported adverse events are from Dr. Jessica Rose. Her conservative estimate based on a careful analysis of the data is that the events recorded in VAERS need to be multiplied times 41.

That would mean that a conservative estimate of the true numbers of fetal deaths would be 80,729 when their mothers are injected with a COVID-19 shot.

Wake up, people! We are watching a eugenic plan of controlling the world’s population unfold before our very eyes, and it is pure insanity for any pregnant woman to voluntarily agree to get a COVID-19 shot that will risk her life, and the life of her unborn baby.

Rochelle Walensky and her cohorts at the CDC, along with the criminals at the FDA, NIH, and many other government health organizations need to be arrested immediately to stop this attack against the citizens of the United States with experimental gene therapy injections.

Mrs. Mary Pat Voll (see photo above) is a pediatric nurse in Altamonte Springs, Florida, according to her Facebook page. She posted a photo of herself holding a vaccine card, with the caption “pregnant and vaccinated” on February 22.

Baby Ellie Voll died from “a marginal cord insertion complicated by placenta previa resulting in fetal vascular malperfusion,” according to Mr. Voll. Marginal cord insertion is a pregnancy complication when the baby’s umbilical cord attaches itself to the wrong part of the placenta.

Placenta previa is a further complication when the placenta partially or completely covers the cervix.

Fetal vascular malperfusion is yet another complication that obstructs blood flow to the fetus. Preterm birth, fetal mortality due to excessive bleeding, and stillbirths are some of the results of this condition. Emergency C-sections are required to potentially save the baby.

STUDY: Government’s Own Data Reveals that at Least 150,000 Probably DEAD in U.S. Following COVID-19 Vaccines If this is a truer estimate of how many people are dying in the U.S. following COVID-19 shots, that means millions are dying worldwide from these shots over the last 9 months.

Medical Mafia working to sink the healthcare system

  • Jodi O’Malley, a registered nurse who works for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Indian Health Services branch in Phoenix, Arizona, is blowing the whistle on COVID jab injuries
  • A DHHS emergency room physician admits no one is reporting COVID jab injuries, even though it’s required for emergency use medications
  • Health care systems in Idaho, Alaska and Montana have started rationing health care based on probability of survival
  • Medical resources are under strain due to the enormous numbers of trained medical staff either resigning or getting fired for refusing the COVID jab
  • Public health data are being massively manipulated and then wielded as a weapon to justify egregious power grabs and governmental overreaches. In the process, the medical profession has been pushed to the edge of a moral void where patients are viewed as disposable based on their medical choices

In Part 1 of the video above, Project Veritas interviews Jodi O’Malley, a registered nurse who works for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Indian Health Services branch in Phoenix, Arizona.

O’Malley is blowing the whistle with taped recordings in which HHS staff express concern and disgust over the fact that the federal government is hiding and not addressing COVID jab injuries, which are now flooding hospitals.

Dr. Maria Gonzales, a DHHS emergency room physician, is heard saying that vaccine injuries are not being reported as required for emergency use medications. She also suspects studies aren’t done because “the government doesn’t want to show that the … vaccine is full of shit.”

As noted by O’Malley, the public is participating in a Phase 3 drug trial, and that’s the stage when you would normally collect safety data. It’s the responsibility of everyone involved to make sure that data are collected and reported. Yet a majority of vaccine injuries are simply written off as unrelated.

Even when a link is suspected or blatantly obvious, it’s rarely reported because it’s a time-consuming process. So, “how are we going to say that this [“vaccine”] is safe and approved for use?” O’Malley asks. O’Malley lost a coworker to the COVID shot. The nurse didn’t want to get it due to religious objections, but was coerced into it. Shortly after her first shot, she was hospitalized and died.

‘Evil at the Highest Levels’

Ivermectin, meanwhile, which has virtually no side effects and has been shown to effectively treat COVID-19, is prohibited within the DHHS. When O’Malley asks Gayle Lundberg, a DHHS pharmacist, if ivermectin can be given to a patient if the doctor is willing to prescribe it, Lundberg responds:

“I am stuck. I am told you are absolutely not to use [ivermectin] under any circumstances whatsoever for somebody with COVID, unless you don’t want to have a job. I’m not going to lose my job over this.”

“This is evil at the highest level,” O’Malley says. “You have the FDA, the CDC, that are both supposed to be protecting us, but they are under the government, and everything we’ve done so far is unscientific.”

The Nursing Shortage Is a Dictatorship-Made Crisis

We’re now told there’s a massive nursing shortage, and that unvaccinated COVID patients are causing health care systems to be overwhelmed. September 16, 2021, The Associated Press reported health care systems in Idaho, Alaska and Montana have started rationing health care as medical resources are being exhausted from an influx of COVID-19 patients.

According to the HHS Protect Public Data Hub, Idaho’s hospitals were at 70.27% capacity as of September 23, 2021, and only 20.51% of inpatient beds were in use for COVID-19. Idaho’s intensive care units, on the other hand, were near capacity at 90.8%, with 62.34% of ICU beds being in use for COVID-19.

These numbers change by the day but, not surprisingly, the influx is blamed on people refusing to get the COVID shot. Idaho Department of Health and Welfare leadership reportedly told hospitals to implement “crisis standards of care,” meaning allotting ICU beds to patients “most likely to survive,” while treating other patients with “less effective methods” or palliative care only.

A hospital in Helena, Montana, has also implemented crisis standards of care, as has the Providence Alaska Medical Center.

However, what many media outlets are not addressing is the fact that medical resources are under strain due to the enormous numbers of trained medical staff either resigning or getting fired for refusing the jabs.

As reported by, Houston hospitals “have reached a breaking point” due to the loss of several hundred hospital workers. Houston Methodist Hospital fired 150 of its staff, the Harris Health System is short 250 workers and the University of Texas Medical Branch is short 100:

“’All last year, through the COVID pandemic, we came to work and did our jobs,’ said Kara Shepherd, a labor and delivery nurse … ‘We did what we were asked. This year, we’re basically told we’re disposable’ …

When hospital administrators set their policy — get vaccinated or lose your job — their goal was to increase vaccination rates of hospital staff. The unintended consequence was a shortage of nurses and other hospital workers during a deadly pandemic.”

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has reportedly requested 2,500 out of state nurses to help with the statewide crisis. Whether he’ll be able to get them is another question, seeing how states that have issued the same vaccine mandates are dealing with the same shortage problems. Critical nursing shortages are reported in South Carolina and Maryland, for example, two states where hospitals have implemented COVID jab mandates.

COVID Hospitalizations or Media Hallucinations?

Of course, with all the fake narratives floating around, it’s hard to tell whether the COVID crisis is actually real. Are hospitals struggling simply because they ditched too many of their staff? Are hospitalized patients there for reasons other than COVID and simply happen to test positive using faulty PCR testing?

Are vaccine injuries being mislabeled as unvaccinated COVID cases simply because they’re hospitalized before they’re officially “fully vaccinated”? Are we seeing an influx of sick patients due to vaccine-induced antibody dependent enhancement, which makes you more susceptible to infection?

It’s virtually impossible to tell what’s what, as the data is being intentionally obfuscated. For example, you’re not counted as fully vaccinated until 14 days after your second dose, so if you’re hospitalized before then, you’re logged as “unvaccinated.” The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also has two different sets of testing criteria, depending on the patient’s vaccination status.

Fully vaccinated individuals suspected of having contracted COVID-19 are to be tested using a cycle threshold (CT) of 28 or less, whereas unvaccinated patients are to be tested using a CT of 40. Anything over 35 CTs has been shown to produce 97% false positives, so this biased testing guidance is blatant in what it’s trying to achieve.

The American Medical Association is also instructing doctors to redefine COVID hospitalizations as “deaths” when communicating with media or the public, and according to whistleblowers, what the media and hospital administrators are calling Delta cases are really vaccine injuries.

According to a recent study of hospitalization records, between March 2020 and early January 2021, 36% of COVID hospitalizations were for mild or asymptomatic disease. Between mid-January 2021 and the end of June 2021, that number rose to 48%. So, nearly half of all COVID hospitalizations may in reality be for other health problems (the patient simply tested positive when admitted for something else), or for mild infection.

With regard to Idaho, the state changed the way they count available ICU beds September 3, 2021, which caused the number of available ICU beds to dramatically drop.

ventilator and icu bed availability

Sadly, this is far from a complete list of all the ways in which data are being manipulated and twisted. But, as you can imagine, even one of these strategies is enough to muddle the waters. Add them all together and what you have is a situation in which there’s no possible way to get a clear picture of what’s really going on.

Public Health as an Objective Reality Must Be Rejected

What we do know is that public health data are now being wielded as a weapon to justify any number of egregious power grabs and governmental overreaches. Hence all the manipulation of said data.

With each passing day, it’s becoming clearer that a biosecurity state is being erected around us. People are being stripped of their health, their lives and their livelihoods in the name of public health. As noted by Christopher Lingle in his American Institute for Economic Research July 29, 2021, article:

“… fear ginned up during the recent pandemic based on pronouncements reflecting ‘expert’ authority caused individuals to stop thinking of health as a personal issue and to embrace ‘public health.’ The notion that ‘public health’ reflects an objective reality must be challenged, especially since so much focus is on only one among many viruses and on only one disease among many ailments that afflict mankind.

It is troubling that these political feats of legerdemain have induced many citizens to accept an artificial collective construct, with solidarity dominating individual autonomy and security elevated over human liberty …

Should citizens resist limits on their individual liberty and rights to achieve collective goals, authoritarian repression becomes an inevitable instrument to ‘pacify’ the masses.

Such excesses and abuse of State power occurred over a vast range of collectivist regimes. For example… [o]ne element of the philosophy of the Nazi Party … promoted the good of the whole over the good of the individual …

Medical technicians, central to the operations of the Nazi State, perpetuated scientific nostrums of evolution and genetic hygiene based on eugenics to advance racial purity. Many Nazi supporters in the early days of the regime may never have imagined the terrible outcomes of following this foul ideology.

As such, caution should be applied to assess the ‘scientific’ wisdom that informs anxieties over deterioration of the natural environment or the health of members of a community. Just as many of the accepted truths of the Green movement are based upon selective application of science, so are the ‘truths’ guiding health policies in the time of Covid-19.”

The Importance of Moral Philosophy

Speaking of Nazis, just how and why did so many medical professionals join the Nazi party and choose to participate in the genocide? In a December 2020 article in Tablet magazine, bioethicist Dr. Ashley Fernandes took a deep dive into these questions.

She points out that the one discipline that connects medicine and law is moral philosophy. “Both law and medicine involve reason and the will, directed toward the good of the person,” she writes. The Holocaust occurred because moral philosophy was corrupted first. The practice of medicine then followed in the same tracks.

COVID patients are treated to death with probably ill-advised protocols. This is the result of allowing a decay of ethics and morals to gain foothold, and the only people who can stop this spreading rot is us. Like O’Malley, each and every one of us must decide what kind of person we want to be.

Tragically, we’re seeing the same thing happen now, right before our eyes. Early on in the pandemic, a nurse stationed at Elmhurst Hospital at the epicenter of the pandemic in New York City blew the whistle saying patients were being killed for profit and wrote a book about it. As soon as hospitals were given large payments for COVID patients, every patient became a COVID-19 patient.

At Elmhurst Hospital, patients were labeled as COVID-19 even if they had a negative test and no symptoms. Most were placed on mechanical ventilation, which killed them. Similar stories emerged from other countries as well.

To this day, around the U.S., doctors, nurses and pharmacists who ought to know better are simply following orders handed down from above. The pharmacist’s sentiment that “I’m not losing my job over this,” is probably a common one. Meanwhile, COVID patients are treated to death with provably ill-advised protocols.

As if that weren’t enough, we’re now seeing hospitals rationing care, and a number of doctors and health officials have said the unthinkable out loud, which is that they want to block unvaccinated people from getting any medical care whatsoever. Australia is going down that path already. In other words, some think you don’t have a right to life if you decide not to play medical Russian roulette and get the COVID jab.

This is the result of allowing a decay of ethics and morals to gain foothold, and the only people who can stop this spreading rot is us. Like O’Malley, each and every one of us must decide what kind of person we want to be. There may be a price to pay for refusing to contribute to the gangrenous machinations underway, but there will be a price to pay if we don’t as well, and it’s likely to be far more painful in the end.

“Even granting the (disputable) claim that the primary motivation for the Holocaust was economic or political, the Nazis somehow made the leap from identifying persons as ‘economic drains’ to becoming completely and utterly disposable,” Fernandes writes.

“Physicians, dressed in white coats, gave the imprimatur that indeed, those that were to be gassed were not human persons at all … Robert N. Proctor (1988) notes that physicians joined the Nazi party in droves (nearly 50% by 1945), much higher than any other profession.

Physicians were seven times more likely to join the SS than other employed German males. Nurses were also major collaborators. The Holocaust should be studied by every health care professional as a reminder of how sacred the substance of our craft is, and what the consequences may be if we forget the dignity of persons again.”

Five Lessons to Prevent Another Genocide

Fernandes goes on to list five lessons of Nazi medicine that must be remembered and integrated into medical practice “if medicine is to survive as a profession of healing” and not serve as a tool for genocide again:
1. Health professionals and society at large must affirm a strong personalism — Personalism posits that “the ultimate unit of value of human life is the individual person herself.” Society is created for the individual, not the other way around. Hence the dignity and integrity of each individual person must be held sacrosanct.

2. We must have “rigorous conscience protection for physicians and health care providers” — Contemporary bioethics favor removal of conscience protection laws and forcing doctors to perform procedures they find amoral.

Abortion, contraception, circumcision, sterilization and euthanasia are but a few examples. Forcing health professionals to act against their own conscience breeds the kind of moral rot we’re now faced with as medical staff act against their better judgment.

3. Affirm that science is not a “god” — Science relies on hypotheses, experimentation and testing of those hypotheses. But it cannot answer whether a medical practice is ethical and morally good. For that, we need moral philosophy, which is rooted in reason and lived experience. “The ethical enterprise is therefore both objective (rational) and subjective (experiential),” Fernandes writes.

4. Health professionals must resist the desensitization to dehumanization, which includes using derogatory terms to describe patients — As noted by Fernandes, “it is far easier to kill a ‘vegetable’ than a human person … Language alters perception, and perception affects our ethical calculus.”

5. As a physician, you must vow to exclusively serve the patient, “not some abstracted idea of ‘society’” — Fernandes adds, “Today we seem to be losing more of our commitment to the individual patient — for there are other ‘gods’ in medicine.

‘Quality of life,’ ‘public health’ or even ‘patient satisfaction’ have become ends in themselves, not a means to an end … [The] power of the ‘white coat’ demands, if we are to fulfill our obligations of trust, that we do not serve the state (and its economic interests), nor the patient’s family … nor any other ‘just cause’ or goal, including our own.”

Top people in the Biden administration are referring to the most basic of economic principles as “absurd”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki has concluded that the economics of companies who pass along higher costs to their customers is just wrong. Actually, the word she used is “absurd.”

She said “It’s unfair and absurd that companies would increase costs for consumers in response to us taxing them more.”

She was responding this week to a question about a new plan to raise taxes on Americans.

It was Biden who has promised repeatedly that his tax increases won’t hit anyone making less than $400,000 a year, although multiple analysts have debunked that claim.

The reporter asked, “I want to ask you about what Republicans are pointing to in the analysis from the Joint Committee on Taxation. They say, according to — if I’ve read the chart correctly, more than 16 percent of taxpayers would see their taxes increase under the bill that’s approved by the House Ways and Means Committee. Will the President sign that bill if — as if — it is coming out of that committee? Or will he insist on the changes so that he will maintain his commitment that taxes won’t go up on people making $400,000 a year?”

Psaki said she had not seen the report, but gave her opinion anyway.

It was on corporate economics.

“Obviously, the president’s commitment remains not raising taxes for anyone making less than $400,000 a year. There are some — and I’m not sure if this is the case in this report — who argue that, in the past, companies have passed on these costs to consumers. I’m not sure if that’s the argument being made in this report. We feel that that’s unfair and absurd, and the American people would not stand for that.”

blog post responding to her comments said, “What in the world is she thinking? … Yes, Psaki thinks that if the government takes more money from companies through higher taxes that it would be ‘unfair and absurd’ for those companies to charge more for their products and goods to make up the costs.”

Actually, taxes on corporations ultimately are paid by their customers, who provide the revenue stream for them to stay in business.

The Free Beacon noted, “A number of economic studies have found that consumers bear approximately 31 percent of the cost of corporate tax increases through higher prices on consumer products.”

Columnist David Harsanyi wrote, about her comments, “The way the Biden administration talks about economics isn’t only transparently dishonest, it’s embarrassingly juvenile. Economic realities aren’t predicated on ‘fairness.’ Perhaps in the progressive Shangri-La where a $3.5 trillion bill is ‘free’ and throwing trillions into the economy helps lower inflation, one has the luxury of pretending that taxes do not pass through to consumers. Companies are in the business of making a profit — and the bigger the profit the better. Otherwise, they do not exist.”

He continued with “This is how the economy grows. This is how jobs and technologies are created. These are the realities, unfair or not. Democrats have adopted a — sorry, I’m not sure how else to put it — fascistic notion that businesses exist to participate in the ‘common good’ as dictated by the state (when they are running it). If this had been the case over the past century, many of the great efficiencies and technological comforts you enjoy would probably not exist.”

He charged that this rhetoric “is an outgrowth of the extraordinarily stupid idea that ‘free’ college and ‘free’ health care exist. These are the same people who tell you there will be no serious trade-offs when greening the economy and artificially spiking energy prices. Goods and services do not spring forth from the ether without costs simply because some voters are big fans of windmills and community college.”

NORM ‘n’ AL Note: “Extraordinarily stupid” is as good a phrase as any to use when talking about Democrats.

Why doctors are going along with the Fauci Fraud

I recently had a conversation with a reasonably well-informed writer who simply missed the real reasons why most practicing physicians go along with the Fauci Fraud.  As a public service, I will attempt to fill in a few gaps.  But first, I must define the fraud.

There are two basic legs to the fraud.  First is the idea that the Centers for Disease Control is in any way concerned with a mission related to its name.  The failure of the CDC to endorse any treatment that did not emanate from its exalted halls should give us our first glint of clarity.  There are literally millions of physicians around the world, and the great bulk of them truly wish to treat their patients well.  Among those are thousands of researchers, a number far in excess of those at the CDC, the NIH, and other alphabet soup government agencies.  The very idea that outside researchers are incapable of discovering anything useful without the help of the bureaucrats in D.C. is hubris of the highest order.  And it prevents the CDC, the FDA, or any other such agency from considering the idea that maybe, just possibly, there might be intelligent life down here.  Mount Olympus cannot be threatened.

The second leg of the fraud is less visible to the naked eye but much more powerful.  If I wrote this before I retired, I would be called before the Board of my group and told in no uncertain terms to shut up.  I might even be assessed a financial penalty with several zeroes after the one.  That’s a serious impairment of my pursuit of happiness.  The reason for my group’s dislike is more than the fact that I might be an irritant.  They may actually agree with what I have to say.  But they simply cannot afford for me to say it.  That’s right: as a practicing physician in a group, my freedom of speech can become very expensive…to the group.

My group cared for patients of all descriptions, with roughly half of them on Medicare and another batch on Medicaid.  Both programs are ultimately managed by the feds, one of the most humorless groups on the planet.  They write a whole bunch of rules on how you have to document everything you do.  If you didn’t document it correctly, it didn’t happen, and you won’t get paid.  But that’s not the half of it.

Suppose you have one of those patients brought in by the ambulance from under the bridge.  His only clothes are the ones he’s wearing, and he doesn’t have two nickels to rub together.  It’s more than obvious that this surgery for bowel obstruction will be a charity case.  Before Medicare, you’d simply write it off as your good neighbor duty.  Now you don’t get a choice.  CMMS (the actual administrative agency) requires you to send a bill.  Twice.  Or maybe three times.  Whatever it takes to turn the bill into bad debt.  Then you have to send it to a collection agency.  Your only alternative is for your group to bring it up in its Board meeting and declare it a write-off that gets noted in the minutes.

All this rigmarole serves no purpose, and you knew that before you got to this sentence.  But CMMS has a sinister side.  If you do the case for free (which you did before you spent that useless money on billing and collection), CMMS will define that as your “usual and customary” bill for an exploratory laparotomy.  Since your U&C is now zero, you can’t ever bill more than that for an ex lap in the future.

But what does that have to do with ivermectin?  I’m glad you asked.

U&C bills are just one of the hundreds of rules that CMMS enforces.  Another is “Pay for Performance.”  Basically, P-f-P requires you to check a host of boxes when taking care of patients.  If you didn’t get that IV antibiotic in 20 minutes before the incision, you failed P-f-P and may not get paid.  The hospital won’t get paid to take care of the patient if there’s a complication.

So let us suppose that you use ivermectin to treat a COVID patient as he arrives in the hospital.  Ivermectin isn’t on the Medicare/Medicaid approved list of medications for COVID.  Your hospital pharmacy will call you up and give you grief.  After wasting a lot of time getting them to finally let you have it, you’ve had to cancel half of your office day.  The next day, you’ll get a visit from a coder, who will tell you that you didn’t use the approved treatment protocol and put the hospital in jeopardy because you flunked P-f-P.  By the way, that “coder” is the person who “helps” you use the proper ICD (billing) code for whatever the patient has in order for the hospital to make the most money.  But that’s not the worst of it.

Because you flunked P-f-P, that waves a red flag in front of the CMMS bulls, and you’re about to get gored.  They will wonder what other bad things you’ve done.  As soon as they find one, it gets flagged as “Medicare fraud,” and they will bill you for twice what you got paid as a penalty.  Can you guess how many other instances of fraud they’ll find if they look hard?  Do you have to ask why my partners would get upset if I published while I was still in practice?  By the way, CMMS can go two years back as they look for your crimes.  They can ultimately take your house, your car, and your wife’s poodle while they’re at it.

Let’s change the scene.  Suppose you’re in private practice.  You can’t give ivermectin because the feds will key in on it if your patient is on Medicare or Medicaid.  So you decide to take care of him off the books.  He pays you cash, and all is well.  Not!  You now took a private payment for Medicare-covered service.  That will get you barred from seeing another Medicare patient for two years.

Let’s forget all the regulatory traps.  You’re conscientious and try to do the best for your patients.  But you’re busy, and you can’t keep up with the flood of papers on all the various COVID bits.  So you wear a mask, have your patients wear masks, and do a lot of telemedicine.  You keep up on the latest through Medscape and the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reporter.  You should be good?  Not!  MMWR is put out by the CDC, and they won’t say the first good word about HCQ or ivermectin.  Medscape is a little better, but not much.  And all the specialty societies are toeing the line.  Can we guess why?

Any doctor who actually reads the studies, or follows any of the protocols published by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, will see a lot of peer pressure to stop.  The financial risks may be extreme.  It takes a spine of steel to stand up to the authoritarian orthodoxy.

There is now NO DOUBT about the origin of the COVID-19 virus. Mainstream media still pretends there is nothing to that story…which means MSM still tries to manipulate the info they give us

The House Foreign Affairs Committee reviewed public and classified intelligence to reach their stunning conclusions that the virus did originate in the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), and it was genetically manipulated. Evidence clearly points to a viral leak from the Wuhan lab before September 12, 2019, the date a public database of 22,000 viral samples from WIV was inexplicably taken offline. The mainstream media have ignored these reports, providing even more evidence they want to manipulate what you know and what you do. The Committee also concluded there was enough evidence to show genetic modification was viable, that new processes could produce genetic sequencing “indistinguishable from wild type” and that Peter Daszak likely has information about the specific gain-of-function research and should be brought to testify before Congress.

It’s important to share information from the committee’s report with your friends and family, as it sheds light on the lies the media have been perpetuating throughout 2020 and 2021. As you will see, and can find in the report, much of the information that led to the conclusions was taken from publicly available data. If the media haven’t been telling you the truth about the origins of the virus, what else have they been hiding?

In the last 18 months, the virus has wreaked havoc on a health care system unwilling to use cost-effective and successful treatment options, and we have an economy that is still reeling from months of lockdowns and social distancing. If successful treatment were truly the objective, why would health experts vilify the use of medications that have been on the market for decades, and why would the media maintain their lies? Today we must seek out successful alternatives which are criticized and discouraged by health practitioners, or decide to accept the risk of permanent injury or death from a vaccine which has been killing people around the world since it was first introduced. Does that sound to you like an intelligent choice of options?

The most stunning headline of the report is that the committee is convinced the virus was leaked from the lab, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The committee used publicly available data, intelligence reports and geospatial tracking to make their determination.

It appears the original infections likely occurred well before the December announcement from Wuhan, China. It is important to note that Wuhan is a large metropolitan city, home to some of the tallest skyscrapers, major cultural sites and multiple universities. As noted in the report, it is five times the size of Houston in land mass with a larger population than Chicago and New York City combined.

Before the leak in 2019, the committee noted there had been several safety concerns in labs across the People’s Republic of China (PRC) since 2004. It was at this time that SARS leaked from the Beijing lab, and since then other accidental releases have occurred. From what the committee can discern, it is highly probable that SARS-CoV-2 was released from the Wuhan lab before September 12, 2019.

It was that date, September 12, 2019, that the online public database WIV of viral sequences and samples disappeared. The database had more than 22,000 entries of pathogens collected from mice and bats, with key information including similarities to other known viruses.

Dr. Shi Zheng-li was the senior scientist at WIV who was listed as the data correspondence author, but as the report highlights, to date has not given a consistent answer as to why the online database was removed or when or if it will be put back online.

Coincidentally, researchers from Harvard Medical School and Boston University School of Public Health had been evaluating 2.5 years of satellite imagery of hospitals in Wuhan. They were analyzing parking lot traffic volume and discovered that in September and October 2019, five of the six hospitals in the city had volume that was much higher than in the previous 2.5 years. The researchers found this peak to correspond with a higher number of searches for two central COVID symptoms — “cough” and “diarrhea” — on the Chinese search engine Baidu.

Each of these factors and more identified in the report point to the likelihood the virus had been released from the lab before September 12, 2019. Data gathered after the 2019 Military World Games held in Wuhan October 18, 2019, further support the committee’s assertion that the virus may have been contained to a local outbreak had truth been told.

The military games are an Olympic-style event that drew 9,308 athletes from 109 countries, including the U.S. There were 25 countries that sent more than 100 athletes. The government used 236,000 volunteers, 90 hotels and more than 2,000 drivers. In other words, the games were a hotbed for spreading around the world what could have been contained as a local virus.

One journalist from the Financial Post reported some participants at the games described Wuhan as a “ghost town.” One of the athletes told the reporter, “This was a city of 15 million people that was in lockdown. It was strange, but we were told this was to make it easy for the games’ participants to get around.”

The source shared there were 60 Canadian athletes put in isolation on the flight home who had symptoms of coughing and diarrhea. Once home, he reported that the symptoms became worse and included nosebleeds, fever and pain with breathing. Family members became ill and doctors were unable to identify a source for the infection. Another military source reported:17

“One-quarter of us got sick, there and when we returned. Some were bedridden for weeks. This made us potential vectors for the virus. The military did nothing. I was sick and others were, too, with Wuhan symptoms … I was eventually given a swab test, which measures only recent exposure, and told to carry on.”

The committee identified four countries that had sent athletes to the games that had people with confirmed COVID-19 in November and December 2019. Those countries were Italy, Brazil, Sweden and France. In both Italy and France, the individuals infected had no known history of traveling outside the country. This suggests the virus was brought into the country from another source. The Committee concluded:

“While much of the public debate was initially focused on the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan as the origin of the pandemic, the preponderance of evidence now suggests that the virus leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Given the WIV’s demonstrated history of conducting gain-of-function experiments on coronaviruses, including genetically manipulating viruses specifically to make them infectious to humans in BSL-2 labs, as well as their possession of one of the world’s largest collections of coronaviruses, it is completely plausible that one or more researcher(s) was accidentally infected and carried the virus out of the lab.”

Twenty-nine pages into the report, the committee began addressing the topic of genetic modification. Within the first paragraph they said there was enough evidence to suggest that genetic modification is a “viable hypothesis.”20 The committee included research from a 16-year collaboration between Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance, and Dr. Shi Zheng-li, senior scientist at WIV, which revealed a strong relationship. They wrote:21

“Beginning in 2005, and continuing over the next 16 years, Shi and Daszak have collaborated on coronavirus research. Together, they ‘led dozens of expeditions to caves full of bats, to collect samples and analyze them.’

They have identified more than 500 novel coronaviruses, including roughly 50 related to SARS or MERS, and they have repeatedly engaged in gain-of-function research on coronaviruses designed to make them more infectious in humans.”

Information from the papers they co-wrote also appears in the committee report, three of which were papers on bat SARS-like coronaviruses. The paper in 2013 that was published in the journal Nature was called “Isolation and characterization of a bat SARS-like coronavirus that uses the ACE2 receptor.”

In 2015, Shi gave Ralph Baric and researchers at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill spike protein sequences and plasmids they identified from bat feces samples in 2013. The Committee reported these were used by American researchers to create:

“’… a chimeric virus expressing the spike of bat coronavirus SHC014 in a mouse-adapted SARS-CoV backbone.’ In other words, they removed the spike protein from SHC014 and inserted it into a SARS coronavirus that was genetically manipulated to better infect mice.”

The research was funded by the NIAID and the NIH through the EcoHealth Alliance and the PRC government. In a paper published in 2016, in which Baric was the corresponding author, the writers discussed “moving from disease surveillance to creating chimeric viruses as a means of pandemic preparedness.” After reviewing the data, the committee concluded:

“Given the above, it is self-evident that Shi and her colleagues, with funding and support from Daszak, were actively genetically manipulating coronaviruses and testing them against human immune systems in 2018 and 2019, before the beginning of the pandemic.”

The committee’s report delved further into some of the unusual features of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. They point out that critics claim what they say is an apparent “lack of telltale signs of genetic manipulation” is proof that the virus is naturally occurring. However, Baric had developed and published a novel genetic engineering system to allow for genetic sequencing that would create a new and infectious coronavirus that was “indistinguishable from wild type.”

Daszak is the only scientist named in the Executive Summary of the report and whose actions “call into question the way in which U.S. government grants are used in overseas labs and call for more oversight of those grants.” To understand the full implications of emails connecting Fauci and Daszak in early 2020, it’s important to understand what happened in the days before.

Fauci and many health experts in the world knew the virus was lab-created

At the GOP House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, shared email information revealed in a Freedom of Information Act release, which demonstrated Fauci and many other health experts in the world knew the virus was lab-created.

Jordan quotes from an email Fauci received from British researcher Christian Anderson that said, “The unusual features of the virus make up a really small part of the genome so one has to look really closely at all the sequences to see that some of the features look engineered. Eddie, Bob, Mike and myself all find the genome inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.”

In a separate presentation at the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus, Jordan illustrated Fauci’s changing narrative on the issue of gain-of-function research, which is a lab-performed genetic alteration to make a virus more infectious to humans, saying:

“He initially said the United States taxpayer money did not fund the Wuhan Institute of Virology. He later changed that, saying no, no we did fund it but it was through a sub-grant. He subsequently said no, no we funded it but we did not fund gain-of-function research.

Then just last Sunday he said, well, we funded it, there was gain-of-function research, but it was a sound scientific decision. And then he said this … it would have been negligent to not fund the lab in China.”

In a section of the report from the House Foreign Affairs Committee titled “The Cover Up,” there is evidence that Daszak pushed for a cover up. His actions included bullying scientists who asked questions, and directly lying about the nature of the research and about the low-level safety protocols being used in the research. They conclude his actions cost time and “provide further proof the virus likely leaked from the WIV.”

In April 2020, Fauci was at the White House, where he rejected the idea that the coronavirus was created in the lab in Wuhan. In July 2020, Daszak headed up a second commission to investigate the origin of the virus, The Lancet COVID-19 commission, despite his many conflicts of interest and of having openly and repeatedly dismissed the possibility of the pandemic being the result of a lab leak.

However, once Fauci’s emails were released under a Freedom of Information Act request, it was discovered that Daszak wrote: “I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators, for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for COVID-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

Jordan quotes testimony from “Dr. Jarrar,” whom he identifies as a former assistant secretary for health, that supports the mounting evidence being revealed. Jordan said:

“Here’s what Dr. Jarrar said. ‘I believe it’s just too much of a coincidence that the worldwide pandemic caused by a novel bat coronavirus that cannot be found in nature started just a few miles away from a secretive laboratory doing potentially dangerous research on bat coronaviruses.'”

In the House Committee’s report, Daszak’s name is mentioned 125 times. The importance of Daszak’s position in gain-of-function research done at WIV and the ensuing coverup is brought home by the committee’s recommendation for the next steps that Congress should take, namely “After this extensive investigation, we believe it is time to call Peter Daszak to testify before Congress.”

“The Story of the Century” still ignored by mainstream media

Never before in human history has a global pandemic resulted in the dismemberment of first-world economies, highly divisive universal vaccine and mask mandates, education-stunting school shutdowns, and the isolation of entire societies to the point of extreme mental health damage.

Throughout all this, the media have shown no curiosity at all as to how this historic misery happened.

Outside the media, everyone already knew that a new virus that started within a stone’s throw of a biosafety level 4 laboratory in an authoritarian nation likely either leaked or was released from that laboratory.  Acknowledging this obvious fact, however, immediately led to expulsion from “polite” society, or at least from social media.

But the fact that Saint Fauci is the director of an organization, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, that provided U.S. funding on “gain of function” research to the tune of nearly $600,000 on several types of coronaviruses at the very lab where the leak happened, may well be the biggest story of the last fifty years. 

Gain of function is shorthand for research that adds a new function to an existing virus, which in this case is the rather inconvenient function of infecting humans.  We were literally funding research by our biggest geopolitical rival on how to turn a harmless virus to humans into one that could wreak chaos in human populations.  Mission accomplished.

That’s an earth-shattering story that fully vindicates Senator Rand Paul, who has been at the forefront of this, even as he was lyingly insulted by the guilty Fauci himself. 

If I submitted a novel manuscript with a supervillain who conspires with his nation’s chief rival to do research that causes a global pandemic, and then is tasked with leading the response to this disaster, I would expect publishers to tell me the story is too far-fetched.  And yet that is exactly where this story leads.

In between yawns, the media’s primary response to the story is to bury it and disparage anyone who notes it. 

The media continue to have a tremendous negative impact on America in their war on truth.  And one of the most pernicious influences is in the stories they choose to bury, which is a lot of them, while setting the daily news agenda.  They say it’s time to move on, and America largely moves on.

I asked a few colleagues about this story, and not one of them had the foggiest idea what I was talking about thanks to a near-total media blackout. 

After reading the story, one colleague asked, “Why on Earth would we want to take a natural virus and turn it into something far more deadly to humans?  Aren’t viruses bad enough without us making them worse?”  Good question. 

Even if there is perhaps some benefit that could be found in such research, the risk seems ridiculously high (as is now rather apparent) — so high that it would far outweigh any potential benefit short of the wicked one of creating a biological weapon to paralyze a rival society.

These media blackouts occur almost daily.  For example, just using today as an example, how many people who don’t read conservative outlets like this know that four out of the five Taliban members traded for an American traitor, the worst of Guantanamo’s worst, are now leaders of Afghanistan?

Or how about the fact that history’s newest Picasso, who sells paintings for more money than most Americans will ever see in a lifetime, is none other than Hunter Biden, who admitted that he and his father are likely compromised by a laptop stolen by Russians?

This selection of what to cover to drive the narrative is the greatest damage that the media do to America.  For all their protestations, I don’t think “enemy of the people” is that inaccurate of a description for an institution that has declared war on the truth and done incalculable damage to American society. 

The media also do damage through repetition, another contrast currently on display.  The media absolutely destroyed President George W. Bush through nonstop and blatantly unfair attacks on him during Hurricane Katrina.  Yet when a mentally challenged Democrat goes on vacation following a similar hurricane, while much of the same state is still without power, the media marvel at his tremendous competence and compassion. 

For those who were lauding the media for negatively covering the administration’s Afghanistan disaster, they really had no choice.  The historic incompetence was at such a level that they were forced to do what they hate the most, even if they did it in the kindest way possible.  But they raced to turn the page and start the rehabilitation effort vice driving him from office, as would have likely happened to a Republican president under the same horrific self-inflicted circumstances. 

Returning to the story of the century, do any of the “mainstream” media outlets not find it rather coincidental that we were conspiring with China to turn a harmless bat virus into one that is lethal to mankind?  Does it not seem a little odd that the very man the media have lionized, since he is part of their cultural tribe, as the leader of the U.S. response provided funding to this effort?  I’m not a big believer in coincidences, and if this was a coincidence, it is the biggest one of all time. 

For those who might question that this “nonpolitical” wunderkind is part of their tribe, anybody who says about Hillary Clinton that “we all love her and are very proud to know her” is a leftist to the core.

If Fauci was aligned with the right instead of the left, the biggest question we’d likely be contemplating is which prison he would be heading to. 

Frankly, I don’t know if the COVID release was an experiment gone bad or something far more sinister and intentional.  But it is always worth considering cui bono, or who stands to benefit, when looking at an issue like this.  The greatest beneficiaries of the destruction wrought by COVID (and the overheated response to it that is still paralyzing Western democracies) were China and leftists and globalists worldwide.

The release of the virus accomplished a number of objectives.  It reversed the damage that the Trump administration was doing to China while resulting in a significant increase in China’s comparative power.  It resulted in a strong move toward authoritarianism across the globe.  And it resulted in the weakest and most compromised American president of my lifetime.  Cui bono, indeed.

At worst, this is a global conspiracy that rivals any in history.  At best, this is the worst cover-up of recent history.  The story is the blockbuster of all blockbusters.  But Democracy dies in darkness, as the paper that marveled at President Biden’s competence and compassion intones, and darkness is what we have at the moment. 

I’ve gained a lot of respect for Senator Rand Paul for his commitment to the truth.  Here’s to hoping a few other politicians buck the cultural power of the left and demand accountability and answers to the biggest questions of recent history.  The leftstream media certainly aren’t going to do it, but we shouldn’t –we cannot — let them bury a story of this magnitude.
