AstraZeneca “dosing error” resulted in “90% effective” COVID vaccine trial result

Arguably the worst performer in Big Pharma’s race to release a Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine is AstraZeneca, which somehow screwed up the dosage in its human clinical trials, only to then claim that this “error” resulted in a better outcome.

Earlier in the week, we reported that AstraZeneca released two different results for its Covid-19 vaccine trial, one claiming 70 percent effectiveness and the other 90 percent. As it turns out, the higher percentage came from syringes that contained only half the amount of the vaccine.

The 70 percent figure for the full dose, by the way, was actually just 62 percent upon closer analysis. The 90 percent figure, meanwhile, came from an incorrect half dosage that was somehow administered to trial participants by accident, despite “rigorous” oversight.

Mene Pangalos, AstraZeneca’s head of non-oncology research and development, likened the mistake to a miracle, calling it “serendipitous” at a time when the company just happened to need a little extra boost in the public relations department.

Pangalos told reporters that the error was a “stroke of good fortune” for AstraZeneca, as it magically boosted the efficacy results of its experimental Covid-19 vaccine by nearly 50 percent.

In other words, a mistake that never should have happened (we are talking about experimental chemicals being injected into people’s bodies) miraculously bumped AstraZeneca’s trial results right up there with its competitors at Pfizer and Moderna, which have been hogging most of the spotlight.

“The reason we had the half-dose is serendipity,” Pangalos told Reuters with a straight face.

AstraZeneca claims serious adverse effects only occurred in participants who received a “placebo”

Back in late April when AstraZeneca had first partnered up with the University of Oxford to develop a vaccine, it was observed that those who received two full doses were developing fatigue-like symptoms.

Other participants were not experiencing these same symptoms, and upon analysis it was discovered – this is what we are being told, anyway – that the latter participants with milder symptoms had “accidentally” been given only half the allotted dose of the vaccine.

“So, we went back and checked … and we found out that they had underpredicted the dose of the vaccine by half,” Pangalos says.

Pangalos’ use of the word “underpredicted” in this context is a bit strange, as there is nothing to “predict” when administering what should have been a predetermined dose of the vaccine.

To act as though this was a simple mistake that conveniently produced an amazing outcome is disconcerting, to say the least. It shows that AstraZeneca is highly untrustworthy, as are its vaccines. Even more questionable is AstraZeneca’s claim that all serious adverse effects observed during the trial occurred exclusively in participants who received the “placebo” shot.

If we are to believe this shady company, then its experimental Covid-19 vaccine is really awesome when given at only a half dose. It also never causes any harmful side effects, because those only occur in people who do not receive the vaccine at all. (Does this sound like reliable medical research, or voodoo research?)

All of this is why SVB Leerink’s Geoffrey Porges called AstraZeneca’s data “hopelessly incomplete.” At best, this company is “embellishing” its results. At worst, it is completely fabricating results in an attempt to salvage its reputation and maybe even rake in some windfall profits.

“We can’t dose properly, but you can certainly trust our chemistry in manufacturing the vaccine,” joked one Zero Hedge commenter.

More on the unconstitutional and useless mask mandates

You have “no constitutional right to walk around without a mask,” says the Republican governor of Maryland, Larry Hogan.  You’ll invariably hear such declarative statements as a line of defense by those who support government mask mandates.  The problem with such statements is that they are a response to the wrong question.

You see, the salient question is not about which individual rights have been so granted by the powers of government (the Founders were clear that God, not government, grants rights to citizens), but about how the powers of government are limited by the Constitution. 

In short, the question is not “does an individual American have the right to walk around without wearing a mask?”  The appropriate question is, “where in the Constitution is the power for the government to coerce Americans to wear masks explicitly defined?”  When framed that way, it should be obvious to even the most dimwitted totalitarian that the truthful answers to both questions are inextricably linked. 

Do Americans have the right to walk around without masks in public spaces?  Without question, they do.  How do we know that?  Because the Constitution does not explicitly grant the government power to institute or enforce laws around masking in public.  Nothing about this is rocket science, but nothing could be more vital to the principle of self-governance.

The federal government clearly has no power to enact or enforce mask mandates.  That much seems clear even to Joe Biden.  Whether state legislatures can craft laws around mask mandates is a bit more of an open question.  The Tenth Amendment suggests that states wield “powers not delegated to the United States” by the Constitution, while the incorporated “due process clause” of Fourteenth Amendment suggest that the states cannot “deprive any person of life, liberty, or property without due process of law.”  In the most conservative appraisal of this legal landscape, we can conclude that states may technically legislate mask mandates.  However, as mask mandates, like lockdowns, deprive Americans of liberty and individual agency, they cannot be arbitrarily designed, implemented, or enforced.

To put it mildly, when you make dissenting arguments against that government mask mandate that your governor enacted via executive decree (because legislating such a mandate infringing upon your liberty would be too politically difficult to achieve), you couldn’t be on firmer legal ground. 

Even at the state level, these mask mandates can often be proven unconstitutional.  Gavin Newsom, for example, has been rebuked by a superior court for dozens of new executive orders issued earlier this month.  The Court determined that Newsom “overstepped his authority” by engaging in an “unconstitutional exercise of legislative power.”

But, in case you haven’t noticed, any legal impediments to the government’s seizure of power don’t matter to the angry mask mavens who demand nothing less than your unconditional compliance.

For them, the masks are a matter of life and death.  You’ve undoubtedly even witnessed some of them drawing and quartering some ridiculous straw man, as the aforementioned Governor Larry Hogan did, comparing my walking in a supermarket without a mask to someone pounding a fifth of Jack Daniels and getting behind the wheel of a car.  You have “no constitutional right to drive drunk,” and thus, we have laws demanding that you don’t drive drunk, he argues.  Why can’t we have laws demanding that you don’t walk around a grocery store without a rag covering your face?

It’s an utterly insane comparison. 

First of all, contracting COVID and being struck by a drunk driver on the highway result in wildly different outcomes.  Do we really need to be clarifying this in, ostensibly, the most educated America that has ever existed?  If most Americans get COVID, they have a 99.98-percent chance of surviving the incident.

Second, there are mountains of evidence that drunkenness monumentally impairs motor skills and that drivers, so impaired, represent a high level of life-threatening danger to themselves and others.  The evidence is so strong in favor of that contention, in fact, that there’s not a single convincing shred of dissent against it.  On the other hand, to say the evidence for the efficacy of wearing cloth masks is scant is as much an understatement as saying the Mariana Trench has a bit of depth to it.

Americans were marvelously struck to find that a new Danish study all but proves that masking is useless.  But the real marvel is that Americans managed to be struck by this.  Until a few months ago, this fact was common knowledge among our countrymen, the inherited wisdom earned from a masking craze that took hold in the Spanish flu epidemic.  Seemingly overnight, we’d forgotten what accepted scientific evidence had shown us for a century: that masks don’t do much to help slow or limit respiratory viral spread.

The evidence that this year’s reversal of scientific consensus is flawed exists all around us.  Mask adherence is quite high in America and has been since at least the summer.  Perhaps that’s why states with mask mandates do not fare any better than states without mask mandates.  But beyond that correlation, the only other significant conclusion to be drawn, as positive tests explode around the country, is that all this masking hasn’t been the panacea we have all been promised by politicians and public health officials. 

But what masks lack in practical efficacy, they make up for in political virtue.  Not only do they serve as a constant public reminder that the deadliest plague in our lifetimes is among us (this is simply and provably untrue) and that your family and neighbors are the vectors, but they are a sign of your absolute submission to the technocratic status quo. 

It is hard to see what has happened this year as anything other than a desperate scheme for control by totalitarian progressives.  Consider how we’ve witnessed the dominoes fall. 

When this year began, few Americans could have even imagined that their government could tell them that they couldn’t have customers in their stores, or that they couldn’t leave their homes, unless they’re doing either for “essential” purposes.  After all, what business does your government have in determining that your restaurant or small business, which couldn’t be more “essential” for your family and those you employ, is insufficiently necessary in your community or for your own life and liberty?

But we accepted two weeks of lockdowns to flatten the curve.  Then a few months.  Then, if you’d just “wear the damn mask,” life could get back to normal.  We did that, too.  But life continues to be anything but normal. They’re still demanding lockdowns while also demanding masks and telling Americans how their holiday celebrations must be tailored to the commands of public health officials, local tyrants, and dictatorial governors.

Eighty-two percent of Americans believe they can individually assess and manage the risk of COVID, in spite of public health officials’ assurances that they can’t.  It’s time we assert our liberty and abolish these unconstitutional and useless mask mandates.

How can you KNOW if you are blessed?

If you own just one Bible, you are abundantly blessed. One-third of the world’s population does not have one, or even have access to one. If you regularly read the Bible you own and truly attempt to live by it, you should be blessed beyond all comparison.

If you woke up this morning relatively healthy, you are more blessed than at least one million people who will not live out the week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation, you are more blessed than at least 500 million people around the world.

If you attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death, you are more blessed than at least 3 billion other people worldwide.

If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head, and a place to sleep, you are more blessed, and richer, than three quarters (75%) of the entire world’s population.

If you have a little money in the bank, some in your wallet, and a little spare change in a dish or other container somewhere, you are among the top 8% of the world’s population in terms of worldly wealth.

If your parents are still married and alive, you are a rarity, even in the USA. You are hugely blessed.

If you hold your head up with a smile and feel truly thankful to be alive, you are wonderfully blessed…because almost all of us CAN do this, but don’t.

If you can hold someone’s hand, hug someone, or even touch someone on the shoulder, you are blessed because you can offer God’s comforting touch to another person.

If you prayed yesterday or today, you are among the minority who believe in God’s ability and willingness to hear and answer prayer. You are extremely blessed.

If you believe in Jesus as the Savior and Son of God, you are tremendously blessed. Your understanding of love comes from giving, and a joyful eternal future is awaiting you.

If you can read this little message, you are more blessed than well over two billion people in the world who do not know how to read anything at all.

We hope all these huge blessings you now realize you have will change your perspective a little. Have a GREAT day!


Happy Thanksgiving from

COVID vaccine trials are called “Science by public pronouncement”

William Haseltine, an infectious disease expert and former Harvard medical professor, has criticized COVID-19 vaccine trials, including Pfizer’s, saying their protocols reveal they are “designed to prove their vaccines work, even if the measured effects are minimal.”

He points out that prevention of infection is a critical endpoint in a normal vaccine trial, but prevention of infection is not a criterion for success for COVID-19 vaccines in development by Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson & Johnson. According to Haseltine:

“Any vaccine trial should include regular antigen testing every three days to test contagiousness to pick up early signs of infection and PCR testing once a week to confirm infection by SARS-CoV-2 test the ability of the vaccines to stave off infection. Prevention of infection is not a criterion for success for any of these vaccines.

In fact, their endpoints all require confirmed infections and all those they will include in the analysis for success, the only difference being the severity of symptoms between the vaccinated and unvaccinated. Measuring differences amongst only those infected by SARS-CoV-2 underscores the implicit conclusion that the vaccines are not expected to prevent infection, only modify symptoms of those infected.”

He also explains that while most people expect that a vaccine will prevent serious illness in the event they’re infected, “Three of the vaccine protocols — Moderna, Pfizer, and AstraZeneca — do not require that their vaccine prevent serious disease only that they prevent moderate symptoms which may be as mild as cough, or headache.”

While Pfizer is touting its vaccine as more than 90% effective based on 94 cases in their trial, “There are many, many outstanding questions which are left unanswered,” Haseltine said.

One of the main unanswered questions has to do with asymptomatic infections, which aren’t regularly being tested for in Pfizer’s trial. It’s possible, then, that those who have been vaccinated could still be asymptomatic carriers of COVID-19, spreading the disease to others.

“That’s a major point that I don’t think most people appreciate,” Haseltine told Business Insider. “It doesn’t mean an end to the epidemic.” It’s also unknown whether the vaccine reduced the number of cases of serious disease, hospitalizations and deaths, as no distinction was made between serious COVID-19 cases and those causing only minor symptoms.

Also missing from Pfizer’s press release is how the vaccine fared in different age groups, a key data point since older people are those most at risk of serious disease outcomes. It also remains to be seen how long any protection offered by a vaccine may last, as the study just began in July.

As for side effects, Pfizer’s Bourla said, “The DMC has not reported any serious safety concerns and recommends that the study continue to collect additional safety and efficacy data as planned.” Again, however, it’s far too soon to know whether the vaccine is safe. The timeline of the experimental COVID-19 vaccine is unprecedented as, on average, it can take 10 to 12 years for a vaccine to be developed and go through the normal licensing process.

“We don’t know anything about groups they didn’t study, like children, pregnant women, highly immuno-compromised people and the eldest of the elderly,” Dr. Gregory Poland, director of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group in Rochester, Minnesota, told NBC News.

Even Pfizer acknowledged in their clinical protocol that COVID-19 disease enhancement is a real risk following certain vaccinations. In what’s known as antibody-dependent enhancement, or ADE, or sometimes called paradoxical immune enhancement (PIE). In these scenarios rather than enhance your immunity against the infection, the vaccine enhances the virus’ ability to enter and infect your cells, resulting in more severe disease than had you not been vaccinated.

Th2 immunopathology, in which a vaccine induces a faulty T cell response, triggering allergic inflammation, poorly functional antibodies and airway damage, is another serious risk.

Both ADE and Th2 immunopathology occurred in the 1960s when a vaccination for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) was being developed, resulting in the death of two toddlers and serious illness in several other children who received the experimental vaccine.

Similar concerns again surfaced in testing for a potential vaccine against another coronavirus, SARS, about 20 years ago. At the time, even long-time pro-vaccine advocate Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine and professor of pediatrics and molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine, was shaken. According to a feature published in PNAS:

“When SARS, also a coronavirus, appeared in China and spread globally nearly two decades ago, Hotez was among researchers who began investigating a potential vaccine.

In early tests of his candidate, he witnessed how immune cells of vaccinated animals attacked lung tissue, in much the same way that the RSV vaccine had resulted in immune cells attacking kids’ lungs. ‘I thought, ‘Oh crap,’’ he recalls, noting his initial fear that a safe vaccine may again not be possible.”

Despite years of additional research and alternative development strategies, immune enhancement concerns remain, and, as explained by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in our 2020 interview, coronavirus vaccines remain notorious for creating paradoxical immune enhancement.

Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is relying on novel mRNA technology that has never previously been used in vaccines. It essentially instructs your cells to make the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, which is what attaches to the ACE2 receptor of the cell. This is the first stage of the two-stage process viruses use to gain entry into cells.

The idea is that by creating the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, your immune system will be stimulated to produce antibodies, without making you sick in the process. However, another key question that needs to be answered is which of two types of antibodies are produced through this process.

Coronaviruses produce both neutralizing antibodies, also referred to as immoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies, that fight the infection, and binding antibodies (also known as nonneutralizing antibodies) that cannot prevent viral infection. Instead of preventing viral infection, binding antibodies can trigger an abnormal immune response like ADE or PIE.

In trials of Moderna’s experimental COVID mRNA vaccine, 25 participants who received two doses of its low or medium dose vaccine had levels of binding antibodies — the type that are used by the immune system to fight the virus but do not prevent viral infections — at levels approximating or exceeding those found in the blood of patients who recovered from COVID-19.

Data for the more significant neutralizing antibodies, which stop viruses from entering cells, were reported for only eight people.

Fearmongering is being used to frighten people even more during COVID pandemic

Story at-a-glance

  • There’s an entire school of research within public health on how to frighten people, known as “fear appeal”
  • Fear appeal is based on the premise that to successfully implement a public health measure, you must first highlight a threat. And, to work, the threat must be made personal, so that people fear for their personal safety
  • Next, you give people something immediate to do that will set them on the path of cooperating with the plan in its entirety. Examples during the COVID-19 pandemic include not leaving your house, wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart, closing certain businesses and keeping children home from school. In the future, we can expect to be told we must get vaccinated and digitally tracked before we can resume life as normal
  • By adding confusion to the mix, you can bring an individual from fear to anxiety — a state of confusion in which you can no longer think logically. In this state, you are more easily manipulated
  • Eventually, when the fear and anxiety are great enough, desperation sets in, at which point people are willing to do just about anything to get relief

Dr. Peter Breggin, a psychiatrist, has written more than a dozen bestselling books on psychiatry and the drug industry. He’s frequently referred to as “the conscience of psychiatry” because he was able to successfully reform the psychiatric profession, abolishing lobotomies and other harmful experimental psychosurgeries.

This past year, he’s homed in on COVID-19 and the fears around it, which is the topic of this interview. He also started researching the history of Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has been the face of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, learning more than he bargained for in the process.

“He just looked like this kindly gentleman, until I started to listen to what he was saying and to look into what he was doing,” Breggin says. “In early April, [my wife] Ginger brought this scientific article to me and said, ‘Honey, this looks like it’s impossible, it’s fake or something.’

It was a 2015 article by a big team from North Carolina [led by] Ralph Baric, he’s the final author on it and the power behind it, although the lead author is Vineet D. Menachery. This article is talking about making a coronavirus that’s going to be a new epidemic agent. They’re talking about it. They’ve actually accomplished it — and it’s a SARS coronavirus.

It’s a virus that will infect the lungs that comes from bats … And they’re checking it out and they find that it will infect human lung epithelium. They give it to mice and the older mice are getting very sick and ones that are compromised die.

It sounds … [like] the precursor of SARS-CoV-2. They even tried, by the way, to make a vaccine for it and they couldn’t. And I’m thinking, ‘My God, what’s going on here?’ And then I look down the line of all these authors. There are [two] Chinese names there … and they list themselves as being from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

And then I look who’s funding it. Well, China is funding it. And Fauci is funding it from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. I’m thinking to myself, ‘My God, we’re giving the Chinese a biomedical weapon’ … [The two Chinese authors] turn out to be two of the very, very top Chinese people in this, what is essentially a military lab. The Wuhan Institute, nothing like that is anything but military in China.”

What Is Fauci’s Role in the Bio-Assault on the World?

Breggin claims he was able to share the information with someone close to President Trump, and three days after sharing this finding, the president canceled the U.S.-Chinese research collaboration that was working on coronavirus gain-of-function research.

However, Fauci quickly took hold of the American research efforts and in October 2020 injected additional funding. Some of that funding will surely still end up in China, Breggin says, by way of the EcoHealth Alliance, which for years has subcontracted research work to the Wuhan Institute. Fauci also gave additional money to the University of Texas. Breggin explains:

“In Galveston, there is a Level 4 biosafety lab that can work with the most dangerous viruses. So, I decided to look into this. It’s not great magic to it, you have to use some search engines like DuckDuckGo. I [searched for] ‘China’ and ‘the Galveston Institute,’ and I got … a press release … bragging about their relationships with the Wuhan Institute, working on viruses.

So, no wonder he’s sending them money. I start digging deeper and I come across a letter from the education department to the University of Texas, saying they’ve not been forthcoming about their connections to China and the Communist Party (CCP), and in particular from the institute in Galveston.

So, I’m looking at this network of connections with China. They list them all. We have a blog out about that too now. And I realized there’s nothing stopping Fauci. Absolutely nothing is stopping him. He is going to carry on his assault on the world. And Fauci knew that the Wuhan Institute was unsafe.”

Breggin delves into some of the backstory that helps explain what’s been happening. In 2014, then-President Obama called for a moratorium on gain-of-function research [making harmless viruses virulent] in the U.S. He did not, however, mention collaborations with the CCP. To get around Obama’s moratorium, Fauci outsourced the gain-of-function research to the Wuhan Institute.

Based on the evidence, which Breggin details in a recent report featured in “Fauci’s Treacherous Ties to China and Globalists,” Fauci appears to play an important role in the global takeover by technocrats.

Technocracy is an economic system in which the world is ruled not by democratically elected politicians but by technocrats — a conglomerate of ultra-wealthy elites, scientists and technicians whose aim is to rule the global population and the allocation of resources through the use of technology.

Fear Is the Tool of Tyrants

Breggin was asked to be the medical legal expert in a lawsuit to put a stop to the never-ending emergency edict by the governor of Ohio. In his medical legal brief, Breggin detailed why shutdowns aren’t working, and the harm they inflict on the population.

This lawsuit has also stirred up other anti-lockdown projects around the U.S. You can find more information about all of this on It’s important to recognize that the primary tool that enables local and state leaders to implement unconstitutional mandates such as universal mask wearing, business shut-downs and draconian stay-at-home orders is fear.

Unless people are terrified, they won’t agree to such freedom-robbing edicts. This is a well-known fact, and as noted by Breggin, there’s an entire school of research within public health on how to frighten people, known as “fear appeal.”

“What an odd name: Fear appeal. It’s a euphemism for scaring people to death. That’s how you ‘appeal’ to them. And it’s a very long standing [field of research].

The particular article [Ginger and I] studied together made several points. It said, first, you have to not only create something or have something that people are afraid of in order to get your public health measures imposed, but you have to make it personal to them, you have to make them afraid personally.

Then you have to give them something immediate to do to begin cooperating with the plans that you have. We have many examples of that. Things to immediately do [are]: Don’t leave the house; wear a mask; stay 6 feet apart; start closing down businesses and so on. Don’t let your kids go to school and on and on …

That got me into looking more deeply at the whole question of public health. And public health, sad to say, is essentially a totalitarian model. It does not raise issues of collateral damage, it doesn’t raise issues of the Bill of Rights, the constitution, of liberty, the right to people to die with their boots on, the American tradition of individuals and their own communities making decisions.

There is no such concept. It starts with the assumption that what public health officials think is true and must be applied regardless of the context. And we see this with this globalism.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re working in Africa or in Communist China, North Vietnam or America, these are the principles, they’re about politics above everything. It’s quite astounding. So, [public health] became something that was perfectly usable by the most extreme totalitarianism …

At the top is extraordinarily wealthy and powerful people and organizations. I see it as a kind of a cooperative but competing group that welcomed Communist China, which shows how little these people — like Fauci and the World Bank and our governments in the Western world —worry about anything except wealth and power.

Once they invited Communist China into this circle, China became a big, big player along these world predators and let each other be. Until Trump came along, no major figure stood up and said, ‘No, no, we’re going to go back to the [way things were].”

The Psychology of Learned Helplessness

Fear is undoubtedly one of the most powerful motivating emotions for individuals, and the single most powerful intervention capable of controlling an entire population. It’s certainly hard to miss that fear has been used to control the masses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Governments now have access to incredibly sophisticated technologies, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, which is being used for all it’s worth to push this fear propaganda. The end goal is to push us into a state of helplessness, so that they can come in and “rescue” us. For decades, Breggin has studied learned helplessness and its remedies.  

“When we’re born, we’re fundamentally helpless. All we can do to be taken care of is to express pain, we can cry, we can wiggle, we can express suffering. But we have no ability to take control of the environment other than by hopefully attracting our caregivers that cuddle us or look for a thorn in the side or whatever.

And that remains an aspect of humanity. That never leaves us. All of us can at some point be made to feel helpless again. And when we feel helpless, we become like the infant. We feel we have to be saved, basically. We look to other people, we look to drugs, alcohol, we look to authoritarian religions, we look to leaders of all kinds.”

From Fear to Anxiety to Desperation

As explained by Breggin, by adding confusion to the mix, you can bring an individual from fear to anxiety, a state of confusion in which you cannot think straight anymore. One of the characteristics of a panic attack or an anxiety attack is the loss of the ability to think. You become helpless and confused. Eventually, desperation sets in, at which point people are willing to do just about anything to get relief.

“So this, folks, is a web of fear,” Breggin says. “It’s all about scaring us, confusing us, making us helpless. I recently wrote a chapter that I may or may not put in the book about my 85 years of looking at fear, because I was alive during World War II. I went down to the beach when I was 4 or 5 years old and would find remnants of our sailors’ life rafts where they sunk right off the water’s edge.

We were afraid of bombs called blockbusters, we hid under the tables and chairs and whatever we could find in school desks for fear of blockbusters. I went through the horrors of the polio [epidemic]. My closest friend died of polio two days after I was wrestling with him. I know fear, I know epidemics … the Vietnam War … 9/11.

And never until Fauci … have I seen leaders say ‘Be afraid.’ I couldn’t believe it when they found a comment made in private by Trump that he wanted to reassure and not scare the people. That was his supposed villainousness — not wanting to scare people.

That’s what Roosevelt did, that’s what every single person has done in great moments of crisis — they have said ‘Let us not be afraid,’ because we all know that a country that is unafraid and is doing as much of its normal activity as possible, is the strongest possible country.

That’s an actual public health principle — that we function best when we are living a normal life, unafraid, and we have ideals and goals like American liberty and freedom to strive for.”

The Biology of Fear

So, just what happens in your body when you experience fear? Importantly, it “quite literally scrambles our brains,” Breggin says. The good news is you have the power to control your mind and to calm down. The bad news is you don’t think you have any control over your mind.

Anxiety overwhelms us, it makes us stupid, it makes us desperately want somebody to take over. But what we need is somebody who says you don’t have anything to fear, the anxiety won’t kill you; [someone who] will calm you down and tell you everything’s going to be fine, you don’t have to be helpless.

But we are getting the exact opposite message from Biden and Fauci … The pharmaceutical industry and the very wealthy need this fear because they’re making a fortune on this fear … getting all their drugs and vaccines ready.”

The Antidotes to Corruption Are Reason, Love and Liberty

Realizing the depth of the scientific corruption was part of why Breggin and his wife, Ginger, decided to take on this whole new field of investigation.

“We knew we had the research expertise and the scientific expertise. And I’ve got so many published books and scientific articles that I don’t think anybody can doubt I’m a researcher and a scientist,” he says.

“It was so mind-blowing to see the degree of corruption. I actually imagined standing in front of God, explaining why I didn’t do anything. That didn’t fly very well. I think the best antidote to looking at all this corruption is, first of all, to know this world has always been a corrupt place …

So, we need to learn to keep our own free will intact, and to love. We need reason and love. We can reason, we can love and respect the liberty of other people. Those are my three key words in life: Reason, love and liberty … You want to overcome your helplessness, [and you] do that with reason.”

What’s at Stake

Educating and supporting others are other strategies that can be helpful. Investigate things for yourself, and then share what you’ve learned with others. The way out of helplessness is to be of service to others, to contribute in some way. As noted by Breggin:

“We need to buckle up at this point and really see ourselves as an example of succeeding in the face of all this, and to spread it however far and wide we can … We weren’t promised an easy life.

There’s just no place that I know of that is a mammoth promise of an easy life. Life is difficult. Right now, I think the single most important thing is not the virus, it’s saving freedom in America. 

One of the things I want to say to the progressive folks — and for a good chunk of my life, I was a very strong progressive — most of you are idealists, most of you would like to see the improvement of mankind. But that is not what’s going on in the world right now …

It is not about being a conservative, it is not about being a progressive. We are dealing with international predators that are just as happy to work with Iran, or North Korea, or North Vietnam or China. They are only interested in wealth and power. They have no real deep commitment to progressivism or capitalism. And … they haven’t got the slightest interest in free enterprise. Bill Gates is not a figure of free enterprise.

You got to get this straight. These people are not for liberty. This entire powerful international movement that I’m calling predatory globalists are motivated by wealth and power. They have reached the pinnacles of power, which are always corrupting.

Bill Gates has three people on his board of trustees: Himself, his wife and Warren Buffett — the No. 2 and No. 4 wealthiest people in the world. This is power beyond imagination. They are not wedded to anything except power and wealth. Wealth is a way to [power] and they’re using technocrats to do this.”

More Information

The most important thing right now is to recognize that what we’re facing is an acute challenge to our society, our culture, that must be faced head-on. We need to aid our fellow human beings as best as we can with information, knowledge, that the mainstream media is not telling them.

In fact, mainstream media are a significant part of the problem, because they’re being used as a tool to implement the technocrats’ agenda. For this reason, it has become imperative to seek out other channels of information, most of which are becoming progressively more censored and harder to find.

Evidence of election fraud? Yes.

Democrats and their media cronies claim there is no evidence of voter fraud in the Presidential 2020 election.

Here is merely some of the evidence. More is being discovered daily.

In Mexia, Texas a social worker has been charged with 134 counts of election fraud.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced that an election Fraud Unit charged Kelly Reagan Brunner, a social worker employed at the Mexia State Supported Living Center, with 134 felony counts of “purportedly acting as an agent and of election fraud.”

Brunner allegedly filled out voter registration applications for 67 residents without their signature or consent, while claiming to be their agent.

In a statement Attorney General Paxton said:

“I strongly commend the Limestone County District Attorney’s Office, Sheriff’s Office, and Elections Office, as well as the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General for their outstanding work on this case and their commitment to ensuring a free and fair Presidential election in the face of unprecedented voter fraud,” said Attorney General Paxton. “Registering citizens to vote or to obtain mail ballots without their consent is illegal. It is particularly offensive when individuals purport to be champions for disability rights, when in reality they are abusing our most vulnerable citizens in order to gain access to their ballots and amplify their own political voice. My office is prepared to assist any Texas county in combating this insidious form of fraud.”

If convicted Brunner faces up to 10 years in prison.

Under Texas voter law, only a parent, spouse, or child who is a qualified voter of the county can be an agent in registering a person to vote, and only after being appointed by that person to do so.

None of the SSLC patients gave consent to Brunner to act as their agent nor could she legally do so under current Texas law.

Many reasons for optimism as Election 2020 rages on

It has often been called a battle for the White House when, in fact, in this 2020 presidential election, it is a campaign made up of many skirmishes and battles.  Make no mistake: it is a campaign for the future of America, and so far President Trump has handily won two significant early battles.

The first was the rallying of Trump Nation pre-election to send a powerful message of hope and aspiration for a better life for all America.  Trump relentlessly pressed home his vision with truly historic rallies and also a successful get-out-the-vote effort.  That battle was so successful that a record number of minorities heard his message and made history by trusting him to make their and their children’s lives better and more secure.

The Democrat party lost that battle of hope and goodwill for America by the simple fact that its message of socialism failed because Democrats had to cheat to win.  The anger of decent Americans’ betrayed by Democrat political hack operatives will burn white-hot and will be forevermore a stain on their legacy.

The second battle won is also historic: President Trump, with the able assistance of Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, managed to place Justice Amy Coney Barrett on the U.S. Supreme Court just in time.  This is hugely important because Chief Justice Roberts has been seen as a jurist with no integrity and cannot be trusted.  The evidence of his perfidy is overwhelming.  The addition of an honest, brilliant judge on the Court as a potential tie-breaker enforcing the rule of law cannot be underestimated.  This matter will go to the Supreme Court.

It is important to recognize that making a solid legal case takes time and due diligence.  When I was investigating Clinton Inc. for corruption in 1998 as staff investigator for the House Committee on Rules, I visited N.Y. D.A. Robert Morgenthau, which was a great honor in my life.  I left that meeting with him and his chief of staff with a profound understanding of how to make a criminal case.  It requires a law to be violated, as much hard evidence as possible, and witnesses and victims.

Consequently post–Election Day, there is a huge P.R. fight raging, which ultimately means nothing unless it produces additional hard evidence.  Derivative posturing by Democrats is whistling past the graveyard.  The facts are the facts, and the truth is the truth, and it does not look good for them.  The weakness in their grand theft election strategy is that it is ultimately built on a conspiracy of epic proportions.

Although Speaker Pelosi has an Italian name, her Democrat mob does not have an enforceable code of omertà.  It takes just one early triggering moment, and names will be named and conspiracies unraveled.  That moment has already arrived, driven by the Republican Party of Nevada, aided by the Honorable Ric Grennell and former attorney general Laxalt of Nevada.

The Nevada Republican Party announced Thursday evening that it has sent a criminal referral to U.S. Attorney General William Barr with allegations that the state had 3,602 cases of voter fraud. 

“Our lawyers just sent a criminal referral to AG Barr regarding at least 3,062 instances of voter fraud,” the Nevada Republican Party wrote in a tweet. “We expect that number to grow substantially. Thousands of individuals have been identified who appear to have violated the law by casting ballots after they moved from NV.” 

Be of good cheer, America.  Let the P.R. war rage.  President Trump has a well thought out and brilliantly executed campaign to ultimately win against nasty, nasty bullies who cheat.

Brief COVID vaccine update…


Rather than doing long-term safety studies on both animals and humans beforehand, what’s being now put into place is a “safety study” after the fact, where vaccine recipients are monitored for side effects. Unfortunately, the Warp Speed vaccine development program, being shrouded in secrecy, has not released details about what biological parameters would actually be monitored and carefully watched.

Investigative journalist Whitney Webb has offered this observation:

“It really doesn’t make sense, if you think about it, for something that … is funded by American taxpayers to produce a medical countermeasure or a vaccine [during] peace time, is being run by the military under extreme secrecy with a lot of involvement of intelligence contractors, or intelligence agencies themselves.

We now know, for example, that the NSA and the Department of Homeland Security are directly involved in Operation Warp Speed, but they won’t really say exactly what parts they’re doing. But there are some indications as to what they could be involved with.

And the fact that Silicon Valley companies that have been known to collaborate with intelligence [agencies] for the purpose of spying on innocent Americans — Google and Oracle, for example — are going to be involved in this surveillance system … for everyone that gets the vaccine.

It’s certainly alarming, and it seems to point to the fulfillment of an agenda that was attempted to be pushed through or foisted on the American public after 9/11, called Total Information Awareness, which was managed, originally, by DARPA.

It was about using medical data and non-medical data — essentially all data about you — to prevent terror attacks before they could happen, and also to prevent bioterror attacks and even prevent naturally occurring disease outbreaks.

A lot of the same initiatives proposed under that original program after 9/11 have essentially been resurrected, with updated technology, under the guise of combating COVID-19.”

The vaccine trials are currently underway around the world, and the fact that even though the vaccines are being given to perfectly healthy, younger individuals, they’re reporting lots of side effects, including serious ones. Most recently, a volunteer physician in the Brazilian arm of AstraZeneca’s trial died from receiving the placebo, which was not sterile saline but the meningitis vaccine.

None of the vaccines are designed to actually prevent infection. The primary measure of success is whether or not the vaccine results in fewer symptoms when you’re infected with SARS-CoV-2.

While the AstraZeneca trial initially stated the vaccine was being tested against a saline placebo, it has since been revealed that they’re using the meningitis vaccine as the “placebo,” which can help hide a variety of side effects. The study was not halted following that death, but it’s already been paused twice due to unexpected serious illnesses. Both instances were deemed unrelated to the vaccine, of course.

“These are really things that have the potential to be very drastic because you have to consider that the sample sizes are quite small. [If] you extrapolate to the size of the U.S. population, potentially hundreds of thousands of people [may] suffer very adverse health effects,” Webb says.

Webb also points out that rather than having contracts between government and the vaccine companies, the vaccine contracts have been funneled via a third party. Why? One potential reason is because this exempts them from Freedom of Information Act requests. It also exempts vaccines made under those contracts from many federal regulations, including federal safety regulations.

“We also know, because of the changes HHS made per the Prep Act, that any person that produces a COVID-19 vaccine … associated with Operation Warp Speed will not be liable for any sort of damages it may cause.

And, it’s definitely concerning that these vaccine companies, a lot of which just have atrocious track records, are being given billions of dollars and being allowed to operate under the utmost secrecy, developing something for the American public that can very well be mandated, or, for some people, even if it’s not an official mandate, if they want to keep their jobs or they want to stay in school, they’ll have to receive it anyway. So, it’s definitely an issue that more people should be talking about.”

Unfortunately, as mentioned earlier, it’s extremely difficult to get this information out. YouTube, which is owned by Google, censors all of it. This is beyond questionable considering Google’s involvement with Operation Warp Speed. In short, they’re censoring to protect their own interests.

Aside from the fact that mRNA vaccines have never been used in humans before now, there’s also the issue of their perishability. This is yet another factor that heightens the risk of these vaccines. At best, they may become ineffective unless stored properly; at worst, they may produce unexpected side effects.

Unlike conventional vaccines, which simply need to be refrigerated, mRNA vaccines need to be kept on dry ice in order to maintain a temperature below zero. This clearly complicates delivery and storage, which apparently is one reason why the military will be in charge of distribution.

“The person in the Pentagon who is overseeing [the distribution] aspect is a man named Paul Strauss. He’s one of the people who has been most adamant about the secrecy and insisting that they can’t release certain things. So, that doesn’t instill me, personally, with a lot of confidence as to what’s going on,” Webb says.

“But yes, there are a lot more logistical hurdles than there have been in past planned vaccination programs, which of course didn’t involve the military, this extreme secrecy, and didn’t involve DHS or the NSA. The HHS, like I said earlier, sold this as a joint, essentially 50/50 HHS and DoD initiative. But really, the number of HHS officials on this list is quite small.”

The 9/11 attack became the justification for a series of tyrannical control mechanisms in the form of the Patriot Act that stripped Americans of civil liberties and privacy.

Now, the COVID-19 pandemic, despite the fact that it hasn’t resulted in an excess number of deaths above the historical norm for any given year, is being used, apparently, as yet another excuse for the implementation of more tyrannical controls. It appears that what they’re doing is laying down the infrastructure for a totalitarian control system set to be deployed later.

HHS, a few weeks ago, issued a solicitation, which was given to an MIT spinoff company called Biobot Analytics. Essentially, they say it’s to create a nationwide wastewater surveillance system where they will be robotically sampling sewage from various cities around the country. As Webb says:

They say that will be done to test for COVID-19 and use an AI algorithm to predictably determine if a COVID-19 outbreak will take place in the future, up to 11 days before symptoms would even allegedly begin to show in that particular population. They say that would be done to enable rapid containment of those communities before this alleged future outbreak could happen.

What you can see there, in my opinion, is what was previously trying to be sold to the public as predictive policing, but now it’s sort of the predictive policing approach to healthcare. We have to prevent infection or prevent outbreaks before it happens, which obviously is rife for abuse by a government that is fundamentally corrupt and out of control.

If they wanted to lock down a particular community, all they have to say is, ‘Our new surveillance system has identified, through this algorithm, that there will be an outbreak here in 11 days. So we have to shut everything down in this entire city.

NORM ‘n’ AL Note: We will be diligently following up on this subject. You should be, too.

Looking for a REAL way to put the COVID Crisis behind you?

If you own a business, work for a business, or know someone who fits either one of those categories, here is some more GREAT NEWS: There are SOLUTIONS to your money problems!

Waiting (some call it procrastinating) is never part of a good action plan!

Why not lead the recovery, instead of waiting until you see an “all clear” sign and missing all or most of the growth you could benefit from?

GREAT NEWS…US economy now showing record gains as we erase COVID crash

The U.S. economy grew at a record 33.1 percent annualized rate in the third quarter, swiftly recovering some of the deep losses driven by the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, according to data released Thursday by the Commerce Department.

The seasonally adjusted rate of growth, an advance estimate from the department, means that if the pace of economic growth between July and September spanned 12 months, the U.S. economy would have increased in size by roughly a third. On a non-annualized basis, the economy grew by 7.4 percent in the third quarter

Economists had widely expected GDP to rebound at an unprecedented rate in the third quarter as the U.S. began to dig itself out of the coronavirus recession. The U.S. added 3.8 million jobs between July and September and saw sharp increases in consumer spending, particularly on personal goods household products. The U.S. trade deficit in goods, which typically detracts from GDP, also narrowed in September as exporters began to send more products abroad.

Personal consumption expenditures — a measure of consumer spending — rose at an annualized rate of 40.7 percent in the third quarter, making up more than 25 percent of the total third-quarter rise. Purchases of goods soared at an annualized rate of 45.4 percent, driven by large increases in sales of autos and auto parts, clothing, and recreational products. 

Spending on services rose at an annualized 38.4 percent rate, with health care and food services leading the way. Gross domestic private investment, which covers money spent to build and renovate structures, purchase business equipment, and acquire intellectual property products, rose at a staggering 83.3 percent annualized rate.

The Thursday GDP report will be the last major economic indicator to be released before Election Day and could be a focal point for President Trump, who trails in polls nationally and in swing states to Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Trump and his economic advisers had been hyping up the third quarter GDP figures for weeks, and have argued the report would vindicate the president’s approach to the pandemic.

U.S. GDP remains far from its pre-coronavirus levels despite the record third-quarter jump. Ian Shepherdson, the chief economist at Pantheon Economics, said that GDP would have needed to rise at a 45.7 percent annualized rate in the third quarter to recover the total loss in the first and second quarters.

The third-quarter increase “will be the biggest-ever quarterly growth rate,” he wrote in a Thursday research note, “but it does not mean that all the damage has been undone.”

The U.S. still faces a long road to a full recovery. Roughly 10.7 million of the more than 20 million jobs lost to the pandemic have not yet been recovered, 24 million Americans remain on some form of jobless aid, and thousands of small businesses are teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.

The failure of Trump and Congress to reach a bipartisan stimulus deal before Election Day could also sap momentum from the already-slowing recovery, particularly as a third wave of COVID-19 cases surges in the U.S. 

Personal incomes fell by $540.6 billion in the third quarter as the boosted unemployment benefits and stimulus payments offered through the $2.2 trillion CARES Act expired. The bill helped fuel a $1.45 trillion increase in personal income in the second quarter, which economists credit for preventing an even deeper recession.

Disposable personal income also fell 13.2 percent in the third quarter, after rising 44.3 percent in the second. And personal savings totaled $2.78 trillion in the third quarter after notching $4.71 trillion in the second quarter.

While Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have both expressed support for another stimulus measure after Nov. 3, the election aftermath could make doing so politically untenable.
