Charge COVID-19 Intelwars Media reporters test Ticked WHITE HOUSE

Media ticked over White House plan to charge reporters $170 for COVID-19 test every time they enter

The White House plans to roll out a new policy starting Monday that would charge journalists $170 to take a COVID-19 test every time they enter the grounds, and reporters in the press corps and beyond are not happy about it.

What are the details?

The Washington Post revealed the plan, reporting that the Biden administration is getting pushback from media outlets large and small who are unhappy about being asked to pay the government what could amount to tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege of doing their jobs.

But the Biden administration says the tests are just too expensive for the White House to keep paying.

The outlet pointed out:

Until now, the cost of testing has been borne by the White House. But officials there contend that the cost of maintaining the testing regime for nearly a year has strained its budget. So it wants to shift the burden onto news organizations: No test, no entry to the White House.

Reporters from across the country also expressed their frustrations and dismay over the new policy on social media.

Max Tani of The Daily Beast tweeted, “I think part of ‘bringing truth and transparency back to the briefing room’ is not making it prohibitively expensive for smaller outlets with tight budgets to go to the White House.”

Mississippi Free Press reporter Ashton Pittman criticized the Biden administration for what he believed was two bad decisions in the same day, writing, “It’s GREAT that the president doesn’t call journalists ‘fake news’ or ‘the enemy of the people.’ But between apparently deciding to let MBS off the hook for murder and now trying to make journalists pay $170 per visit to the @WhiteHouse? This is madness.”

Pittman argued further, “Not all outlets can afford that, but on principle it’s antithetical to the free press-public servant relationship to make journalists pay for access.” He added, “We need transparency, not admission fees.”

Some Twitter users hailed the White House’s decision, expressing hope that smaller outlets — namely conservative outlets OANN and Newsmax — might be priced out of attending press briefings under the new policy.

Tim Murtaugh, the former communications director for President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign, explained, “Put another way: A small news outlet with one White House reporter, paying $170 for each virus test, would pay:

$170/day

$850/week

$3,400/month

$40,800/year.

That’s a lot for the privilege of covering Biden. Only bigger outlets could swing it.”

Band COVID-19 high school Intelwars musical instruments social distancing Students Washington state watch

High school mercilessly mocked for placing band students in tents so they can practice amid pandemic

Wenatchee High School in Washington state came up with a novel way to allow band members to practice their instruments while remaining socially distant in the battle against COVID-19 — placing the students inside individual tents,
KCPQ-TV reported.

“We are not putting these in every classroom,” Principal Eric Anderson told the station, adding that the idea was a collaboration with local health officials. “I don’t want anybody to think out there this is the solution to more kids in the classroom. I don’t think that would work, but in this scenario, it’s worked really well.”

Anderson added to
Wenatchee World that his students have been back in school on a hybrid schedule since Jan. 26.

Tidal wave of reactions

Some folks deemed it a clever idea to put kids in tents so they could play their musical instruments: “Wenatchee HS Band is an award-winning org. I applaud their efforts of maintaining their standards while still trying to adhere to safety,” one Twitter user wrote. “While it may look ridiculous, these kids wouldn’t do it if they didn’t want to.”

But plenty of other social media users have been mocking the move:

You knew the “Spinal Tap” references would surface, too, right?

Others were similarly disturbed and amused:

  • “Well this confirms it,” another Twitter user declared. “Our decision to move to a Red state is definitely correct.”
  • “Can someone in the Wenatchee area donate a couple of their old camping tents to the high school for the poor tuba players?” another user asked.
  • “That adults, government, teachers or parents, would abuse young people like this is unimaginable,” another commenter wrote.
  • “They’re just f***ing with us at this point,” another user said.
  • “This is absolutely insane,” another commenter noted. “I fear for these kids[‘] mental health.”
  • “Excellent example of Rule through FEAR — once you sacrifice your freedom for security you will soon have none,” another user said. “Time to tell main stream media & dems we are no longer afraid. Time to shout ‘FREEDOM,’ take off our masks, open businesses and schools and hug our family and neighbors.”
  • “This is beyond stupid. We have lost our minds,” another commenter wrote. “Every day I say it can’t get more asinine…and yet it does.”

Chicago Has Become A Rotting, Decaying, Crime-Ridden Hellhole – And The Rest Of America Will Soon Follow

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog.

I don’t know why anyone would want to live in Chicago at this point.  According to the latest estimate that I could find, “over 117,000 gang members” currently live in the city, and there is so much violence that it regularly makes headlines all over the globe.

Some of the wealthy areas of Chicago still look nice, but many communities have been transformed into something straight out of a war zone.  Large churches, hospitals, and factories that were once so beautiful are now rotting and decaying all over the city, and a vibrant open-air drug market scares customers away from local businesses.  Sadly, the truth is that the entire country is going down the exact same path that Chicago has gone.

Coming into last year, Chicago was known as one of the murder capitals of the world, but nobody expected the murder rate to spike “by more than 50% in 2020”

Chicago police also released the final crime number for 2020 Friday which showed that shootings and murders jumped up by more than 50% in 2020.

In 2020, there were 769 murders, up considerably compared to the 495 murders tallied in 2019.

As for shootings, the city logged 3,261 last year, a big jump from 2,140 shootings in 2019. The number of shooting victims climbed to 4,033 in 2020, up from 2,598 in 2019.

But even though last year was so horrific, some officials are expressing optimism about the future.

For example, Dr. Faran Bokhari believes that the COVID vaccine is going to make a tremendous difference

“I think our savior is going to be the COVID vaccination,” Dr. Faran Bokhari, Chief of Trauma at Cook County Hospital. “I think people are so tired of being indoors and not being able to do what they usually do.”

Yes, gang members and drug addicts will feel so much better about life and will become a lot less violent once they are vaccinated and can get out into the streets a lot more.

Good luck with all that.

State Representative Marcus Evans has a different strategy in mind.  He believes that banning “Grand Theft Auto” will solve this crisis

It’s no secret that crime is out of control in Illinois and one lawmaker has a solution. In response to an increase in carjackings in Chicago, State Representative Marcus Evans Jr. wants a law passed making it illegal for retailers to sell violent video games to minors. “Grand Theft Auto” is not mentioned in the bill but Evans pointed to that specific game during a press conference on Monday.

Meanwhile, people continue to flee the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois at a staggering pace.

In fact, the exodus that we witnessed in 2020 is being described as “historic”

Illinois recorded a seventh straight year of population loss from July 2019 to July 2020, but the year’s drop was historic – 79,487 residents, the most since World War II and the second largest of any state in raw numbers or percentage of population. Larger declines year over year have also caused Illinois to suffer the largest raw decline in population, and second largest on a percentage basis since 2010, shedding 253,015 people – triple any other state’s losses.

I can understand why so many residents are leaving for greener pastures, but other major cities are also seeing dramatic spikes in crime too.

One study that was recently released found that murder rates in 34 major U.S. cities rose by an average of 30 percent last year

THE HOMICIDE RATE across 34 American cities increased by 30% on average during 2020, according to experts, as the U.S. reeled from the coronavirus pandemic and widespread protests against police brutality.

The newly released report from the National Commission on COVID-19 and Criminal Justice found that homicides rose in 29 of the 34 cities studied and that the three largest cities in the sample – New York, Los Angeles and Chicago – accounted for 40% of the additional homicide victims in 2020.

At this point, nearly all of our big cities are becoming unsafe.

If you want to avoid all of the violence, you could try moving to a small town, but that might not work either.

For example, the small town of Chickasha, Oklahoma sounds like it would be a nice place to live, but look at what just happened there

A repeat felon has confessed to killing his neighbor, cutting out her heart and feeding it to his family before murdering his uncle and a four-year-old girl, Oklahoma authorities say.

Lawrence Paul Anderson, 42, allegedly stabbed the neighbor, Andrea Lynn Blankenship, to death at her home in Chickasha on February 9.

Unfortunately, the truth is that our entire society is in the process of melting down all around us, and this process is only going to accelerate during the very difficult years ahead.

The worse economic conditions become, the more desperate people are going to get, and right now more businesses are shutting down with each passing day.

For instance, we just learned that Fry’s Electronics will be permanently shutting down all of their stores

Consumer electronics retailer Fry’s Electronics is going out of business after nearly 36 years.

Fry’s “has made the difficult decision to shut down its operations and close its business permanently as a result of changes in the retail industry and the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic,” the company said in a statement on its website. The company said it has begun the “wind-down” process as of Wednesday and has stopped its normal operations.

As I have discussed in numerous recent articles, poverty is exploding all over America and this economic downturn is hitting those at the bottom of the economic food chain particularly hard.

As this economic crisis grows, those at the bottom of the economic food chain will increasingly be venturing into wealthy neighborhoods to take out their frustrations.

Those with a “Robin Hood mentality” will try to claim that there is “justice” in taking from the rich and giving to the poor, but in reality, it will just be a way to justify the rampant lawlessness in our streets.

The rioting, looting, and violence that we have seen so far is just the beginning.

Much worse is coming, and it won’t be too long before the entire country looks like the streets in the worst parts of Chicago.

boil water advisory cold temperatures COVID-19 Dallas Food government is slavery Headline News Hoax Intelwars plandemic Preparedness response scamdemic Storm texans Texas wake up Water winter storm

3 Million Texans on “Boil Water Advisory” Amid Food Shortages

About 3 million Texans are still currently on a “boil water advisory” amid food shortages.  The problems keep mounting for the state after a brutal winter storm devastated areas not used to such cold temperatures.

The number of people boiling their water out of safety has dropped to 3 million Wednesday from 8 million the day before. Plumbers and engineers have worked around the clock to repair the countless homes and businesses damaged by a brutal winter storm, according to a report by NBC News.   Some 13,000 people were still without any running water Wednesday after the public water systems they rely on were rendered “nonoperational” by the unseasonably cold winter blast, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality reported.

Those who do have water report that it doesn’t look clear. “The water itself, it’s really coming out all yellow,” San Antonio mom Evelyn Esquivel said Tuesday.

This problem is coupled with a food shortage in the state. Many Texans are still seeing empty shelves at the grocery stores, which struggled to stay stocked. Large crowds descended on food pantries, in the wake of the government’s response to the COVID-19 hoax scamdemic, that forced people to believe they had to shut down their businesses and impoverish themselves. That means little food is left to go around now the stores have sold out.

State Representative Rafael Anchía, a Democrat from Dallas, said Tuesday that “this situation isn’t over by a long shot. We had millions of Texans already suffering from a pretty deep recession caused by the Covid-19 pandemic,” Anchía said. “We had people already in a fragile state, and when you compound that with the worst statewide winter storm and disaster … people who were barely holding on are completely wiped out.” Imagine that. People obeyed the orders of the government to panic and shut down their businesses to their detriment, and it’s all the “scamdemic’s fault.”

Let’s wake up to the reality of the situation:

Government, Not Coronavirus, Is Killing Small Businesses

Hopefully, this is a lesson in preparedness for not just Texans, but everyone.  It never hurts to have some food and water stocked and stored up and it won’t hurt to have a backup source of heat for your home, such as a woodburning stove.

AIDS Amfar award anthony fauci Coronavirus COVID-19 Intelwars Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts will present Dr. Anthony Fauci with amfAR award for courage

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House’s top health expert on the coronavirus, will receive an award presented by actress Julia Roberts for “courage” in the fight against AIDS.

Roberts, known for hit roles in “Pretty Woman” and “Erin Brockovich,” will present Fauci with amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research’s Award of Courage, during a virtual “A Gala for Our Time” event on March 4,
People magazine reported Thursday. The video presentation of the award was pre-recorded and excerpts from the video were published by People.

“”There’s no one more deserving. You’ve been tireless and true for all of us and I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Roberts reportedly tells Fauci.

“Thank you so much Julia, those are such very kind words, I really do appreciate them. Coming from you, that really means a lot to me,” Fauci says before thanking the “unsung heroes” of the COVID-19 health crisis.

Actress Glenn Close will also be honored with an award presented by Bette Midler.

“Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. is director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the U.S. National Institutes of Health, where he oversees an extensive research portfolio focused on infectious and immune-mediated diseases,” amfAR
states on its website. “As the long-time chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation, Dr. Fauci has made many seminal contributions in basic and clinical research and is one of the world’s most cited biomedical scientists. He was one of the principal architects of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), a program that has saved millions of lives throughout the developing world.”

A Gala for Our Time will be amfAR’s first virtual fundraising gala for the amfAR Fund to Fight COVID-19, which supports efforts to develop effective treatments for the coronavirus. The virtual event will be
free for those who wish to register to view it and will feature numerous celebrity appearances and performances by Kelly Clarkson, Ava Max and Rita Ora.

According to People magazine, amfAR presents its award of Courage to individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to important social and humanitarian causes, particularly to amfAR and the global HIV/AIDS response.

Roberts has previously called Fauci her “personal hero.”

At the #PassTheMic campaign last May, during which celebrities, health experts, and policy makers spoke about the need for a global response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Roberts spoke to Fauci, referring to him as “maybe the coolest man on the planet right now.”

“Oh, this is such a thrill,” Roberts told Fauci. “This is a thrill for me because there are very few experts of anything in the world and you truly have emerged as a personal hero for me. Just to have this little corner of your time for us is such a joy.”

COVID-19 Critical Thinking fear mongering government is slavery Headline News Infections Intelwars Mainstream media Moderna Mutations official narrative Pfizer propaganda outlets the devil Transmission vaccines variants wake up

MSM Finds More Fear: CA COVID Mutant “The Devil” Is A Cause For Concern

The mainstream media will find fear wherever it can, and if it cannot find any, it’ll gin some up.  We know the ultimate goal is a total panicked state of fear in the masses, as fearful people make much better slaves.

A COVID-19 variant discovered in California has been dubbed “the devil” by one of the scientists studying it. “This variant is concerning because our data shows that it is more contagious, more likely to be associated with severe illness, and at least partially resistant to neutralizing antibodies,” said senior author Charles Chiu, an infectious diseases physician at the University of California, San Francisco.

This puppet of the ruling class, Dr. Chiu, said that he “fears if its spread isn’t stopped,” it could one day meet the highly infectious United Kingdom variant and swap genes, creating a “nightmare scenario.” Anyone with half a brain knows that this means they are ginning up the fear in order to get more to comply with the vaccine and more financial devastation in the form of lockdowns and totalitarian control over human behavior.

We had better wake up, and quick.

The Californian mutant strain of the virus, formally known as B.1.427/B.1.42, was first detected in the state last year ahead of a massive surge in infections over the northern hemisphere winter, according to NewsHub.

According to “new research” on B.1.427/B.1.42 (which oddly enough fits the official narrative like a glove) the variant:

  • is four times less susceptible than the original coronavirus to neutralizing antibodies
  • is two times less susceptible to antibodies from the blood of people vaccinated with the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines
  • has a case-fatality ratio five to six times higher than normal COVID-19
  • spread six times faster in an outbreak at a nursing home than previous strains
  • had viral loads twice as high in the nasopharynx than people infected with other strains
  • has mutations not yet seen in other coronavirus variants, including one  – L452R – that makes it 40 percent better at infecting the lungs
  • is perhaps three times as infectious (considerably more than the dreaded UK variant, estimated at between 40 and 80 percent more infectious).

Critical thinking will be critical in the coming year.  Brace yourself, and stay alert.

California COVID-19 Intelwars Reopen schools school board SLAVERY Vaccine watch White supremacy accusation

School board VP: ‘Forcing’ teachers back to class before they’re vaccinated is ‘a very white supremacist ideology,’ akin to ‘slavery’

A California school board vice president argued that “forcing” teachers back into classrooms before they receive COVID-19 vaccinations “seems like a very white supremacist ideology” and is akin to “slavery.”

Chardá Bell-Fontenot, vice president of the La Mesa-Spring Valley Board of Education, sparred with numerous board members during Tuesday’s virtual meeting and even appeared to accuse district Superintendent David Feliciano of “racism” after he found some of her comments “offensive.”

What are the details?

The primary issue was setting a date for teachers to return to in-person instruction. While it appeared most of the individuals at the meeting — Bell-Fontenot’s video thumbnail was not onscreen, but her voice could be heard — were in favor of setting a return date, Bell-Fontenot was opposed to making a decision at the meeting.

While one of the proposals involved giving time for teachers to get vaccinated, at least one board member insisted that waiting wasn’t necessary. Bell-Fontenot took issue with the idea of “forcing” teachers to return to classrooms without being vaccinated, which she said “seems like a very white supremacist ideology” and akin to “racism.”

Several outlets said Bell-Fontenot did not respond to their requests for comment.

“We don’t have to give anybody any date!” Bell-Fontenot hollered at one point. “We don’t have to do anything that we don’t want to do right now. That’s what you don’t understand. I don’t know where you’re getting your information, or who’s telling you that we have to make a decision today, but that is not how this works.”

When a board member argued that a survey indicated 70% to 80% support for returning to school, Bell-Fontenot replied, “Who are the 70 to 80 percent, and where are they? I would like to know geographically from which school sites, which language groups, and how they conducted this feedback. Where? Please give it to me before I can make a decision. I can’t make one. I cannot make one. And I will not make one.”

When one individual said Bell-Fontenot could abstain from voting, Bell-Fontenot shot back, “There’s no reason to be nasty with me.” And again, when it was put to her that she’s “welcome” to vote no, Bell-Fontenot replied, “I know what I’m what I’m welcome to do, you guys. I do. And I know that what we’re doing is wrong.”

Throwing down with the superintendent

Amid the debate, Bell-Fontenot said, “None of you guys even know what you’re talking about right now. This seems like a mess. We should not be voting on this tonight. You guys don’t have all the information that you need. … You’re speaking from your heart, and that’s fine.” She added that a decision on a teacher return date should be pushed to the next meeting.

Then Superintendent Feliciano stepped in.

“I take great offense to the statement that no one on here knows what they’re talking about right now,” he told Bell-Fontenot. “I don’t believe that to be the case at all.”

“I wasn’t talking about you, David,” she replied. “I was talking about my fellow board members, especially the new ones.”

“I’m not speaking about me, either,” Feliciano answered. “I’m talking about your fellow board members.”

“They can speak for themselves if they have an issue with me; they can tell me,” Bell-Fontenot told the superintendent. “But you don’t need to speak for them, David.”

“I can speak for them if I choose to,” he replied.

It should be noted that while snippets of Bell-Fontenot’s arguments at the board meeting appear on the latter videos, a complete audio recording of the meeting can be found here. The relevant portion starts at the one-hour, fifteen-minute mark.

Feliciano also called Bell-Fontenot’s words “offensive.”

“Don’t say you can speak for others, that’s not appropriate,” Bell-Fontenot told him. “And it’s disrespectful. Like this is the second time you’ve disrespected me, David.”

When board President Rebecca McRae tried to move on and get Bell-Fontenot and Feliciano to discuss things in private, Bell-Fontenot hollered, “No, it doesn’t need to be private! … Racism doesn’t need to be private, Becky!”

Bell-Fontenot also didn’t seem to know the board meetings are recorded for the public, and when she was told they actually are and how to access them, she complained they aren’t “easily accessible.”

She also asked those at the meeting to “please stop trying to make me seem like I don’t know what I’m talking about, and like I’m dumb.” Bell-Fontenot added that she was “offended by the smirks on you guys’ faces.”

‘Racism’ challenged

Another individual at the meeting said she didn’t understand why Bell-Fontenot was “so upset.”

Bell-Fontenot replied, “You may not know me, but I’m not upset at all.”

The individual, a woman, went further and said, “I’m Hispanic, and I have four adopted children. We look like the U.N. So, that’s why when … you’re throwing out the racism, I don’t understand that.”

Measure passes

In the end, the board voted 4-1 in approval of Feliciano’s push to reopen the district’s classrooms, KNSD-TV reported, adding that a “hybrid” plan will begin April 19.

Coronavirus impact on children COVID-19 Covid-19 impact kids Intelwars Newborn with coronavirus Viral loads

Newborn baby tests positive for COVID-19 — and doctors find that the child has 51,000 times the viral load of other patients

A newborn baby diagnosed with COVID-19 in Washington, D.C., was found to have at least 51,000 times more viral particles than other young patients diagnosed with the deadly virus.

What are the details?

According to a Wednesday report from the Washington Post, experts can’t fathom why the unnamed child — who was born in September and has subsequently recovered — had such a high viral load, but later determined that the infection was a new coronavirus variant seen in several other cases.

The child, according to the Post, was born “very sick.”

“Most infected kids barely show symptoms and even the hospitalized ones tend to have mild cases,” the outlet noted.

On Thursday, Insider reported that it isn’t clear whether this particular variant is more dangerous to children, but pointed out that its structure may make it more infectious when compared to other strains.

“It’s not clear how common or risky this new variant might be,” Insider noted. “The database found eight other cases of this variant in the U.S. mid-Atlantic region, according to a pre-print study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, on coronavirus variations in children.”

The outlet noted that the variant’s distinctive type of spike protein structure “may make it more infectious.”

“It’s not clear whether this new variant explains the huge number of viral particles detected in the infant’s nose,” the outlet added.

“It could be a complete coincidence,” Roberta DeBiasi, chief of infectious diseases for the Children’s National Hospital, told the Post in a statement. “But the association is pretty strong. If you see a patient who has exponentially more virus and it’s a completely different variant, it is probably related.”

DeBiasi added that she couldn’t conclude anything about the mutation from just one case, but the Post reported that researchers found evidence that a “variant with a mutation called N679S may be circulating in the mid-Atlantic region.”

What else?

The Post reported that as of Feb. 11, more than 3 million U.S. children tested positive for the virus since the beginning of the pandemic.

“The biggest surges have occurred since mid-November, when cases increased at a rate of 100,000 to 200,000 each week,” the outlet noted. “But the nation’s scant genomic sequencing has focused almost exclusively on adults.”

Harvard researcher Adrienne Randolph said that the need to expand sequencing is immediate.

“A couple of hospitals saying their cases are more severe in kids doesn’t mean nationally this is a problem,” she explained. “But we have to investigate. With new variants, it could be some of these kids were infected with them.”

Alan Beggs, who is a genomics expert at Boston Children’s Hospital, said that the overall “take-home message” is that the country is “doing poorly in identifying worrisome changes in the evolving virus.”

“This is just more evidence that needs to change,” Beggs added.

Bonus Companies COVID-19 Employees Employment entice you to get vaccinated Headline News Intelwars Kroger mandatory mass vaccination Medical Tyranny money vaccines work

Kroger Not Requiring Employees to Get COVID Vaccine but Will Give Them $100 to Take It

This article was originally published by B.N. Frank at Activist Post. 

Last I heard, COVID-19 vaccines are still considered to be experimental, some recipients have experienced side effects – even death – after taking it, and many people still don’t want to take it, including some health care workers.

Last month, Kroger announced that they wouldn’t require employees to be vaccinated.  This month, they’re offering them money to take it.

From NPR:

Kroger Offers $100 Bonus To Employees Who Get Vaccinated

The supermarket giant Kroger Co. announced Friday that employees who receive a COVID-19 vaccine will be rewarded with a $100 bonus.

The one-time offer is available to all company associates, nearly 500,000 individuals in 35 states, who provide proof of their vaccination to human resources, Kroger said. Workers must have received the full manufacturer-recommended dose. As for those unable to receive the vaccine due to medical or religious reasons, completing an education and safety course will be enough for payment.

“As we move into a new phase of the pandemic, we’re increasing our investment to not only recognize our associates’ contributions but also encourage them to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as it becomes available to them to optimize their well-being, as well as the community’s,” Kroger Chief People Officer Tim Massa, said.

Kroger isn’t the first company to do this. The grocery chain Aldi offered employees two hours of pay per dose received. Dollar General also offered employees four hours of paid time. “We do not want our employees to have to choose between receiving a vaccine or coming to work,” the company said last month.

Just over 58 million doses of vaccines have been delivered throughout the country. However, only approximately 36.8 million of those doses have been administered, the CDC reported. And only 7.5 million people have received their full inoculation.

In an effort to get as many shots into arms as possible, a push was made in mid-January to allow anyone over the age of 65 to receive a vaccine. As a result, many frontline workers feel left behind. The virus doesn’t grow tired or weary, but grocery store associates do.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention categorizes grocery workers as frontline essential workers, the same group as firefighters and police officers, public transportation workers, and manufacturers. These individuals are part of the CDC’s phase 1B of its recommended distribution plan, making them eligible for inoculation after health care professionals and long-term care facility residents. But individual states draw up their own vaccine distribution plans.

Dr. Richard Besser, president of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and former acting commissioner of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told member station WBUR that states need to focus on vaccinating those that put themselves in harm’s way.

“I think that it’s critically important that we recognize that while every community is being hit hard by this pandemic, the burden of this disease is not being felt equally,” Besser said. “And those people who need to leave their homes every day to earn money, to pay the rent, to make sure that everyone else has food on their table, we need to do all we can to protect them.”

Kroger announced earlier this week the company plans to close two of its stores in Long Beach, California after the city mandated a $4 raise for grocery workers at large supermarkets. The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, which represents 1.3 million food workers including Kroger union members, said the company needs to do more.

“Kroger workers deserve free vaccinations for the risks they have faced and continue to face as COVID cases increase,” UFCW President Marc Perrone said in a statement obtained by NPR. “This one-time payment from Kroger is appreciated, but given the way the company has treated its workers during the pandemic, it does not recognize the contribution of these essential workers to our nation or the risks they face daily.”

Kristal Howard, Kroger’s head of corporate communications, said Perrone’s statement “inaccurately suggests vaccines are not being provided for free to all employees … all U.S. citizens for that matter. The $100 one-time vaccine payment is not a subsidy. It’s another way Kroger is motivating its workforce to optimize their health.”

Skeptics don’t have to look far to find examples of vaccine recipients experiencing permanent illnesses injuries (see 12).  Kroger may have to pony up more than $100 for employees who continue resisting the shot.

MSM: Coronavirus Variant in California Looks “Increasingly Dangerous”

The mainstream media is using every scare tactic possible when it comes to getting as many people panicked into getting the vaccine as they can.  Now they are claiming “the devil is already here” when it comes to the California mutant strain of COVID-19.

As we have said time and time again, this is not going to end.  As long as people continue to fall for this charade and further chain themselves to the ruling class, we will all be dragged along with them.

KTLA5 even has an article out in which they quote a doctor who claims this new variant is “the devil.” Predictive programming? “The devil is already here,” said Dr. Charles Chiu, who led the UCSF team of geneticists, epidemiologists, statisticians, and other scientists in a wide-ranging analysis of the new variant, which they call B.1.427/B.1.429. “I wish it were different. But the science is the science.”

“The science is the science,” especially when one is being paid by the ruling class to make sure the science keeps the slaves in line. In a study that helps explain the state’s dramatic surge in COVID-19 cases and deaths — and portends further trouble ahead — scientists at UC San Francisco said the cluster of mutations that characterizes the homegrown strain should mark it as a “variant of concern” on par with those from the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Brazil.

Californians, along with the rest of the country, have been bracing for an onslaught of the more transmissible strain from the U.K. known as B.1.1.7. But they should know that a rival strain that is probably just as worrisome has already settled in, and will probably account for 90% of the state’s infections by the end of next month, said Dr. Charles Chiu, an infectious diseases researcher, and physician at UCSF. -LA Times

The solution will be more lockdowns, fewer links in your already short chain, and increased tyranny all over. This is literally what the rulers want.

The new evidence that the California variant could make people sicker, and vaccines less effective, should spur more intensive efforts to drive down infections, Chiu said. Those should include both public health measures, such as masking and limits on public activities, and a campaign of rapid vaccinations, he added. -LA Times

As we previously mentioned, now that the vaccines are out and already doing untold and underreported damage to many who take them, there could be a “push” of some kind to propagate those “hesitant” about taking the vaccine into doing so.  What better way than to make COVID-19 into COVID-21?

Remain alert and prepared. One of the most valuable skills right now will be discernment. Do not turn off your critical thinking and willingly submit to anyone. Keep your mind sharp, and your gear ready.

common cold COVID-19 deaths Dr. anthony fauci fear mongering fully vaccinated Headline News Hoax infected inflated numbers Intelwars liars LIES make it up no freedom PCR tests plandemic propagandists Safety scam artists scamdemic slave state the flu disappeared Truth vaccine doesn't work wake up

Fauci: Vaccinated People Can’t Dine Indoors Or Go To The Movies Still

The biggest tyrant and fraud in the medical field, Dr. Anthony Fauci is now saying once people get fully vaccinated, they still need to avoid restaurant dining indoors and going to the movies. He said it will be safer to gather indoors again as more people get vaccinated and the COVID-19 cases drop.

The cases will drop when the ruling decides that they do.  With this scam being carried out using the PCR tests that give a false positive half the time, it’s impossible to even tell if this virus exists, or if they are simply renaming the flu and the common cold. At this point, who knows if we will ever truly know the truth of what’s going on with this scam and how deep this goes.

According to Yahoo, Fauci said: “There are things, even if you’re vaccinated, that you’re not going to be able to do in society,” Fauci said on Monday during a White House COVID-19 press briefing. “For example, indoor dining, theaters, places where people congregate. That’s because of the safety of society.”

So if the vaccine prevents you from getting COVID, you still can’t be around people who might have COVID because you can get it? That means the vaccine doesn’t work.  If it does work, there should be no fear of anyone who’s been infected. I think based solely on these tyrants’ own words, we know this “vaccine” isn’t what it seems.

Fauci’s comments came on the same day the U.S. passed the milestone of 500,000 confirmed COVID-19 deaths.

Prepare: COVID-19 Cases Are Dropping Dramatically

Study Results: CDC Inflated COVID Numbers By 1600%

He stressed that while being vaccinated dramatically increases one’s “own personal safety,” it’s not a free pass to be the free human you were born to be. People are still buying this scam? Even though the number of new coronavirus cases reported each day in the U.S. has fallen dramatically in recent weeks, the fear-mongering rulers and propagandists need you to believe that the virus is still spreading, with nearly 450,000 COVID-19 cases documented in the past week.

“We are still at an unacceptably high baseline level,” Fauci said at Monday’s briefing. We are, indeed, at an unacceptable baseline level of tyranny. In fact, all tyranny is unacceptable. More and more people are figuring this out daily. Stay alert and prepared, because this is still not over.  It could ramp up dramatically at any time:

More COIVD-19 Vax Deaths: Think They’ll Blame This On COVID-21?

Though vaccines can help prevent people from contracting severe cases of COVID-19, the jabs may not stop them from getting sick altogether. It’s also still unclear whether vaccinated people can be disease carriers, meaning they might spread illness to unvaccinated people in a community where vaccination is far from universal, prolonging the pandemic. -Yahoo

This is pretty much a straight-up admission that the vaccine doesn’t work and could actually infect others.  So what’s the point of the vaccine? This is where you will need to use common sense and discernment. These aren’t the words of anyone else but the rulers and their propagandists. Wake up, folks. Time is running out for humanity.

Coronavirus Coronavirus tyranny COVID-19 Covid-19 tyranny Intelwars Kids and covid-19 virus transmission

Horowitz: Large Wisconsin study shows almost zero virus transmission from youth sports

Shutting down schools is not the only way our politicians are destroying the lives of children. They also continue to ban or limit youth sports in many states or make kids play with masks, which is a greater health threat to children than the coronavirus. The entire sports and leisure life of children has been destroyed for a generation, all for a virus that does not pose a statistically significant threat to them, more than the daily risk of living. Now a new study from Wisconsin lays waste to the entire premise of shutting down youth sports in the first place.

Researchers from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health published a preprint study of coronavirus transmission among 30,704 high school athletes who played sports in Wisconsin during the fall. Wisconsin children were luckier than others because the state Supreme Court reversed the categorical ban on youth sports last May, so most were able to play sports. However, the majority of students were, shockingly, forced to play wearing masks. So, did it make a difference?

Overall, the study found that the infection rate among players was exactly in line with the infection rate in the given county at the time. Despite 30,074 student-athletes that had participated in 16,898 practices and 4,378 games during the peak of Wisconsin’s fall spread, the rate of incidence among those students was actually lower (32.6 cases per 100,000 person-days) than the rate of incidence among the general population of 14-17-year-olds (38.1 cases per 100,000 person-days) during the time.

Here’s the money quote:

Of the cases with a reported known source, 115 (55%) were attributed to 163 household contact followed by community contact outside sport or school (85, 41%), school 164 contact (5, 2.4%), sport contact (1, 0.5%) and other (3, 1.4%).

You read that right. Just 1 individual of 30,000 players contracted the virus through what was suspected to be transmission from the sporting event. And I’d bet my bottom dollar that this was not the worst thing that child had contracted in his lifetime. In fact, with flu season on hiatus, children are getting sick less often and less severely than they do during a typical winter.

The researchers further found no statistically significant difference in reported COVID-19 incidence between contact versus non-contact sports or individual versus team sports. They did find a slightly higher rate for indoor vs. outdoor sports, which is to be expected, although the overall rates for that age group were low across the board.

What about masks?

“After adjusting for local county COVID-19 incidence and school instructional delivery, face mask use was not associated with a decreased COVID-19 incidence in football, girls’ volleyball, boys’ soccer or cross country.” If anything, there was a greater incidence of cases among those who wore masks relative to those who didn’t for the football groups, which had the most cases out of the four sport groups studied. Either way, because 84% were wearing masks, it was hard to get a significant sample size of non-mask-wearers, which will always be used as an excuse to avoid drawing conclusions from this study.

However, with no affirmative evidence that masks ever work, why are we making kids play in such a dangerous environment for a virus that is simply not a problem for them? In an informal survey of 2,270 Minnesota high school athletes, 74% of students reported experiencing at least one “clinically significant symptom” from wearing a mask while playing, including loss of consciousness, dizziness, and vomiting. Almost 80% of respondents said it was hard to breathe, 52% said they experienced “increased or excessive fatigue,” and 48 players reported going to urgent care, with 18 of them being taken to the ER.

The broad results of the Wisconsin study harmonize with a recent study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, which found “that the transmission risk during a rugby match is likely to be very low.” Well, if you’re not spreading it during rugby, then you’re likely not spreading it during any sport. Even if masks were to work in general, there is no reason children, who are not at risk in any meaningful way, should have to wear masks outdoors. The harm far outweighs even the contrived benefits of mask-wearing.

Incidentally, it was the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health that published a mental health survey among high school athletes last July that found that approximately 68 percent of the 3,243 student-athletes surveyed reported feelings of anxiety and depression at levels that would typically require medical intervention.

In October, that same department published a survey comparing those in Wisconsin who participated in sports to those who did not and found that 80% of those who participated felt zero anxiety in their lives compared to just 26.4% who did not play a sport in the fall. Just 6.6% of those who played felt moderate or severe anxiety compared to 44.1% who did not! Also, nearly twice as many students who played sports reported experiencing no or minimal depression as among those who did not participate in youth sports.

Remember that according to the CDC’s current unscientific guidance, youth sports and extracurricular activities would be banned in all the red areas.

What our government is doing to us is a crime against humanity. A 2019 study published in Nature Neuroscience observed that social interaction was so important even for lab rats that when offered the option between a drug infusion (they were previously injected with methamphetamine) and interaction with other rats, the rats chose their peers 90% of the time.

The question going forward is not only whether we will follow the science, but whether we will treat our children with as much humanity as rats.

common cold communism COVID-19 government is slavery Headline News Hoax immoral to support government Intelwars liars Lie Medical Tyranny Morality no authority no choice no enforcers no free will no masters no rulers no slaves plandemic political parasites ruling class scamdemic seize private property seizure is theft Socialism socialized healthcare statism is a mental disorder stealing taxation is theft Theft wake up

Canadian Politician Proposes Seizing Private Hospitals to Fight COVID-19

This article was originally published by Pierre-Guy Veer at The Foundation for Economic Education.

*EDITOR’S NOTE: The seizure of and the banning of ownership of private property is one of the tenants of the Great Reset. “You will own nothing and you will be happy.” This is just the beginning. The ruling class will own everything, including you.

In the Canadian province of Quebec, no party sitting in the provincial parliament dares to question the mammoth size of government. But strangely enough, only one party openly embraces socialism: Québec solidaire (QS). Their motto could be boiled down to “There is no salvation without the State.”

This conclusion is quite obvious when reading a recent Facebook post written by a leader of the left-wing party.

Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, a co-spokesman for the party who was elected to the provincial legislative assembly in 2017, expressed outrage that it was possible to get an appointment for a “Brazilian butt lift within a few days” while “intensive care units are overwhelmed” because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nadeau-Dubois’ team called a few private clinics, and they told him that “there’s no reason to cancel or delay surgeries unless the government tells us otherwise.”

Perhaps inspired by that last point, he proposed seizing private ORs because “an exceptional situation requires exceptional measures… Lives are on the line.”

For a moment, let’s forget the fact that “nothing is more permanent than a temporary government measure,” and that QS is only dreaming about having an all-mighty public sector in nearly every aspect of everyone’s lives.

One has to wonder whether Nadeau has even skimmed through Quebec’s administration of the healthcare system since it was nationalized some 50 years ago. Since the deep cuts of the mid-1990s under Lucien Bouchard, the nominal budget for healthcare has multiplied by a factor of 3.7, increasing five percent per year.

And yet, waiting lists hardly budge.

As of July 2018, the waiting time to see a family doctor was 371 days. These specialists are so overwhelmed that they have already denied service to 75,000 people and counting. As for elective surgeries, over 100,000 people have been on a waiting list for more than six months. Many more patients will have to wait too since “non-urgent” procedures have been delayed because of the pandemic.

What’s more, the province-wide ER occupancy rate is currently 95 percent of available gurneys, with some being well overcapacity. So nothing much has changed over four years ago.

Seizing private ORs, or even taxing corporations that “profited from” the pandemic, is very unlikely to shorten waiting lines, however.

As Montreal’s Economic Institute reminds us, Medicare-for-all (Canada has its own version of Medicare) sees people as spending, and therefore they need to be rationed in order not to go over budget.

But in a private hospital, patients are seen as a source of revenue; there is, therefore, an incentive to give great care so that, for future needs, the patient will come back.

And when there is waiting time in private hospitals, it’s rather short compared to their public peers. So much so that public organizations like CSST (Quebec’s OSHA) send workplace injuries to private establishments in order to save time. Indeed, a shorter waiting time means quicker rehab, less spending on worker compensation, etc.

So as long as the government funds and administers healthcare, refunding patients using private hospitals could mean saving on precious public funds.

It’s already happening for certain long-term care facilities (CHSLD) that receive public funding but are privately administered. In other words, they work like charter schools, and just like them, they have a sword of Damocles hanging over their heads.

In short: They need to work exceptionally well in order to remain open. Otherwise, the state can easily revoke its license. It’s a strong motivator—especially since public establishments hardly, if at all, suffer the same fate—but it pushes charter school administrators like Alex Quigley in North Carolina to find ways to improve their performance. Through trials and tribulations, Quigley was able to improve his school’s grade from F to D; and he hopes to make it to a C soon.

“Charter” CHSLDs operate in a similar fashion. Since they are publicly financed, they can’t charge users more than the fixed price, which was around $2,000 for a room with one bed in 2020. They even pay income and sales taxes, unlike their 100 percent public counterparts.

And yet, their quality is much better: None of them were evaluated as offering a “preoccupied” level of service compared to 12 percent of their wholly public peers. As for a “very satisfying” level of service, it was respectively 64 percent compared to 18 percent, according to a survey of users.

The improved level of care also probably explains why the only CHSLDs that weren’t contaminated by COVID when it started last year were either charter or entirely private. One head administrator, Marie-Hélène Girard, even went to buy PPE in mid-March 2020 on her own initiative despite severe shortages.

“It wasn’t recommended, but we did it anyway. Better to have those handy than nothing at all,” she said in an interview.

Girard was able to act promptly thanks to a lighter administrative burden. According to economist Pierre Fortin, administrative cost for “charter” CHSLD is 26 percent lower than their 100 percent public counterparts. The overall cost is about 12 percent lower.

So rather than envying the private sector’s efficiency, QS should look at it and take notes. While having no direct out-of-pocket spending can be nice, a median waiting time of 16.3 weeks for medically necessary procedures can lead to a heavy human toll.

Rationing is the result of regulating supply and ignoring prices, profits, and good incentives. “Non-essential” procedures like Lasik or butt lifts either saw price decreases or much slower price increases than regular medical because practitioners saw an opportunity for profit.  This drew more providers into the marketplace, which increased supply, driving prices down.

Canadian lawmakers would be wise to emulate the private sector, not co-opt it. By utilizing markets, the private sector has shown it can lower both wait times and costs—something Canada’s “Medicare-for-all” system has failed to deliver.

The Fear Mongering Continues: Over 7,000 COVID-19 Mutations In India, Variants Spread In CA

According to several mainstream media outlets, there are over 7,000 coronavirus mutations and some could “pose serious risks.” A scientist in India has now said that among these variants N440K is spreading a lot more in the southern states.

Rakesh Mishra, Director of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, said some of the new coronavirus mutations are a risk. Mishra, who is on a team of the CCMB scientists also published a paper on their findings – SARS-CoV-2 genomics: An Indian perspective on sequencing viral variants, said “There are more than 7,000 coronavirus mutations in [India].”

More COIVD-19 Vax Deaths: Think They’ll Blame This On COVID-21?

NBC Bay Area is reporting that at least one variant of the COVID-19 mutations is spreading rapidly in California. The fear is ramping up and we should not expect it to fade anytime soon.  Fear is how they get to control and manipulate the masses into their enslavement. We need to wake up.

The study found that cases of the COVID-19 variant first discovered in Denmark have spiked significantly over the past few weeks.

That is a big concern for San Francisco’s COVID-19 Latino Task Force, which continues to see a disproportionate number of new cases among the Latino population.

“We are the majority of the workforce that’s helping keep not just the city running but this country running,” Jon Jacobo with the task force said. “And that is why we see these disproportionate levels of infection.” –NBC Bay Area

The Science of Fear: How The Elitists Use it to Control Us & How to Break Free

The ruling class and propaganda outlets need you masked and to remain away from other human beings while they build this slave state around us. They keep trying to direct our attention toward fear, and there’s a reason.

Are Face Masks & COVID Rituals Occultist Symbols For Submission?

“It’s something to pay attention to,” he said. “Make sure we practice all the interventions that we know about, exclamation point, but not to let our guard down, but not to get panicked about it either.” And yet, we can all tell this is about panicking the masses and making sure as many people as possible remain in that panicked state of fear. “We’re not out of this,” Jacobo said. “The threat of a more infectious or deadly mutation is always lingering. I think that we have to stick to the basics, which is masking, social distancing.”

We all need to wake up.  This is not going to end well for us if we continue to allow these people ownership and “authority” over our lives and property.

brainwashing control COVID-19 government is slavery Headline News Hoax Intelwars LIES Mainstream media mandates Masks mass vaccination Masters no normal plandemic Politicians power propaganda ruling class scamdemic slaves tyrants Vaccine vaccine hesitancy wake up

Propaganda Failure: Ruling Class Upset At MSM “Why Would ANYONE Get The Jab After This?

The ruling class and other power-hungry psychopaths are really upset with a mainstream media propaganda outlet. The Associated Press is now being criticized for not brainwashing the masses adequately.

The AP is under fire for publishing an article telling Americans that life won’t go back to normal even after they’ve been fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Power-hungry control freaks are now upset that the message discourages vaccination amongst the slaves.

In the AP article from Saturday, which has since been republished by a number of news outlets including NBC New York, medical writer Lauran Neergaard bluntly told readers not to “expect to shed your mask and get back to normal activities right away” after being “fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.”

This isn’t exactly a secret, though. The tyrants have been telling us (for those with eyes to see and ears to hear) that this vaccine doesn’t work, won’t prevent you from getting covid and won’t return your life back to what most would consider “normal.”

They Want You Muzzled Permanently: Wear Your Mask Even If You Get The Vaccine

Tyrants: “Prepare To Wear Masks & Socially Distance Even After Getting COVID-19 Vaccine”

Actually, common sense would dictate that people should stay as far away from this vaccine as humanely possible. The statistics are in, and they have never favored getting this injection unless you are the brainwashed slave it’s geared towards.

People from all over the world have long been assured that mass vaccination would bring an end to restrictions. But nearly one year on from the start of the Covid-19 pandemic it has been claimed that life might not return to normal for at least several years – if ever. –RT

Anyone paying attention should already know that this vaccine was never meant to return life to normal.  The goal is compliance and obedience from the slave class to the ruling class.  This vaccine is the beginning of the test for control and manipulation and to see how many are dupped and brainwashed enough to willingly take it. This is the ushering-in of the Great Reset and The New World Order.

The biggest concern for the ruling class is those who won’t take the vaccine, or “vaccine hesitancy.”

Vaccine hesitancy has become a growing concern for medical tyrants and the masters, who all support mass programs of Covid-19 vaccination regardless of party. A Pew Research report from December showed that 39 percent of Americans – over 100 million people – were opposed to receiving the vaccine.

anthony fauci Biden adminisration Coronavirus vaccine COVID-19 Covid-19 response team Covid-19 vaccine Intelwars mask wearing social distancing

Dr. Fauci says vaccinated people can’t dine indoors or go to the movies

President Joe Biden’s top health adviser and coronavirus expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Monday that even people who receive a coronavirus vaccine won’t be able to go out to eat or go to the movies because of “the safety of society.”

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, spoke at a White House press briefing via teleconference with the administration’s COVID-19 response team during which a reporter asked about the messaging around vaccines.

“There’s a lot of conversation about how you need to keep doing the same things even after you get vaccinated — you know, like wearing a mask, not seeing your family, things like that. Do you think that’s preventing people from being more enthusiastic about getting vaccines? And may we see that change in the future?” Los Angeles Times reporter Chris Megerian asked.

Fauci answered that there are several things even vaccinated people will not be able to do as long as there is a high rate of coronavirus in the U.S.

This week, the U.S. death toll from the coronavirus topped 500,000. According to NBC News, more than 28,206,600 cases have been confirmed in the U.S. Though the average number of daily new cases is in decline, Facui warned that “the burden of virus in society will be very high, which it is right now.”

“So there are things, even if you’re vaccinated, that you’re not going to be able to do in society: for example, indoor dining, theaters, places where people congregate,” Fauci said.

“That’s because of the safety of society. You, yourself, what you can do when you are together with another person, we are looking at that, and we’re going to try and find out very quickly what recommendations could be made about what people can do,” he added.

Fauci explained that health experts do not know whether a vaccinated person, though he may be protected from symptoms of disease, could still carry the coronavirus in the back of their nasal cavity at a contagious level. That is why he and other health experts recommend that vaccinated people continue to wear masks, to prevent potential spread of the virus to others.

He said that researchers hope to find that the virus level is “quite low and you’re not transmitting it,” but clarified “we don’t know that know. And for that reason, we want to make sure that people continue to wear masks despite the fact that they’re vaccinated.”

Fauci has come under fire from critics for sending “mixed messages” about COVID-19, masks, vaccines, and when the country can return to normal.

As Fox News recounted, previously Fauci said that about 70% of Americans need to be vaccinated before the U.S. can reach herd immunity to the virus, before adjusting that number to 80%. He claimed that he revised the number after taking into account public opinion surveys.

“When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75%,” Fauci told the New York Times. “Then, when newer surveys said 60% or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85.”

“We have to have some humility here,” he added. “We really don’t know what the real number is. I think the real range is somewhere between 70 to 90%. But, I’m not going to say 90%.”

Last August, Fauci said that Americans could begin to return to normal when as few as 50% to 60% of people were vaccinated. But in November, he told CNN that public health measures should remain in place because there’s no way of knowing how effective the vaccines are, even if they report an effectiveness of 90%-95% in studies. Then just last Sunday on CNN, Fauci said Americans should continue wearing masks in public into 2022.

In that same interview, Fauci would not tell CNN’s Dana Bash if grandparents who have received the vaccine will be able to spend time with their grandchildren.

“You know I’m not going to make a recommendations except to say, these are things that we really do everyday, Dana,” he said.

“We look at that, we look at the data, we look at what’s evolving about how many people are getting vaccinated and there will be recommendations coming out, I don’t want to make a recommendation now on public TV.”

This messaging stands in stark contrast to other countries, like Israel, where the people are being told that getting the vaccine means you can return to normal life immediately.

As The Guardian reported:

Israel is preparing itself to be split in half from next week, with the government creating a new privileged tier in society: the vaccinated.

Nearly 50% of the population who have chosen to be inoculated against Covid will be provided with a “green pass” a week after their second shot, as will those with presumed immunity after contracting the disease.

From Sunday, the pass will grant access to gyms, hotels, swimming pools, concerts, and places of worship. Restaurants and bars will be included from early March.

For the rest, including children under 16 who are not eligible for coronavirus shots, many of the activities shut down during the year-long crisis will remain off-limits, although some will be available if they provide a negative coronavirus test.

Meanwhile in the U.S., top health experts tell a different story. Following Fauci’s comments, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Dr. Rochelle Walensky added that the benefit of receiving both doses of the coronavirus vaccine is that “there is no longer a need to quarantine after you’ve been exposed.”

She promised that additional guidance regarding what vaccinated people can and cannot do would be forthcoming.

Big Pharma COVID-19 covid-21 doses Headline News Hoax Intelwars jab John Young LIES Mutations no return to normal plandemic propaganda ruling class scamdemic Vaccine vaccine doesn't work variants wake up

Big Pharma Promises Big Government mRNA Vaccine Production Will Be Ramped Up

Pfizer and Moderna are promising the United States government that they will increase mRNA vaccine production, more specifically, they will ramp the production of the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to a report by RT, Pfizer has increased its 2021 production plan from 1.3 billion to at least 2 billion doses since July. “To date, no serious safety concerns have been identified that have changed the favorable risk-benefit profile of the vaccine,” Pfizer Chief Business Officer John Young wrote. Say what? So a propaganda minister for a pharmaceutical company is now saying there are no serious safety concerns with the COVID-19 vaccine?

COVID Czar Admits The Vaccine Has “Significant Side Effects”

More COIVD-19 Vax Deaths: Think They’ll Blame This On COVID-21?

Not only have people reported serious health concerns after taking this vaccine, but it doesn’t return life to normal. So what’s the point anyways?  The ruling class obviously needs people to take this thing, and we’ll let you go ahead and guess what the reason for that could possibly be.

The worst part is that around 64.2 million Americans have decided that injecting themselves with this concoction is a good idea. Over 64 million doses of the vaccine have been administered across the country after the vaccine rollout began in December, according to Bloomberg’s tally.

Among the main concerns about this vaccine from the rulers and Big Pharma, are that people don’t want this thing.  They are also trying to keep the fear as high as possible over new mutations of COVID.  The new variants of Covid-19, including the UK variant, which, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, could become dominant in the United States by March.

Pfizer said its studies show that the company’s vaccine is effective against the coronavirus strains from the UK and South Africa. Moderna reported that the company is closely monitoring the new variants and is testing the performance of its vaccine against them.

All while Bill Gates, known for his comments on population control and genocide, has said a third dose of the vaccine may be needed to “combat” the new variants.

Coronavirus Coronavirus tyranny COVID-19 Covid-19 tyranny Intelwars Mask mandates north dakota

Horowitz: North Dakota House passes bill blocking localities, schools from mandating masks

Why did God give Republicans an 80-14 majority in the North Dakota House? Because with so many liberal Republicans, they need every last one just to get a majority behind the right to breathe freely without government criminalizing our breath with medieval superstitious rituals, such as mandated covering with a Chinese face burka.

The bad news is that 30 Republicans voted to allow localities to mandate mask-wearing. The good news is that Republicans still had a 50-44 majority to pass a new law barring local governments from criminalizing human breathing and appearance without a mask.

H.B. 1323, sponsored by Reps. Jeff Hoverson and Jeffrey Magrum, would prohibit a state or local elected official from forcing an individual to use a face covering or make such a covering a condition for entry, education, employment, or services. This bill would presumably bar local school boards from forcing children in school to wear masks.

This bill is very important, because even though 12 states currently don’t have a statewide mask mandate, many localities still require them, and it’s almost impossible to find a school district that doesn’t mandate them on children, despite the evidence against both the efficacy of masks and the threat of children spreading the virus.

The bill was given a “do not pass” recommendation by a 9-5 vote in the political subdivisions committee, but in North Dakota, every bill still gets a vote on the floor. It appears that some of those members understood that they were being watched. House Speaker Kim Koppelman, assistant majority leader Scott Louser, and caucus leader Glenn Bosch all voted for the bill.

The bill now moves on to the Senate, where it’s sponsored by Sen. Oley Larsen and will likely get a hearing next month. The chairman of the Senate Political Subdivisions Committee happens also to be the Senate president pro tempore, Randy Burckhard. Republicans have a 40-7 majority in that chamber, but many are known to be somewhat liberal, so conservatives will have to work this vote hard if they want it to pass it.

Gov. Doug Burgum has declined to comment on the mask bill. He implemented a mask mandate on Nov. 14, but allowed it to expire on Jan. 18. As in every other state, there was zero evidence of any efficacy of that mandate. North Dakota suffered from a sharp winter curve because the state had little prevalence of the virus and therefore weak immunity headed into the fall surge. The virus rose and fell with the collapse of the winter curve everywhere else, and the relaxation of the mandate has not stopped the decline.

Despite South Dakota never having a mask mandate and having fewer restrictions than North Dakota, South Dakota actually had slightly fewer cases.

The northern latitude states out West seemed to have the exact same curve, despite different responses and varying population densities.

Clearly, the mask-wearing is a charade and, as the FDA says on its website until this very day, does not work for airborne-transmitted viruses, only to “block large-particle droplets, splashes, sprays, or splatter,” which is not the primary transmission method of the virus. The FDA also says, “Surgical masks are not intended to be used more than once,” guidance rarely abided by as a result of the mask mandate.

Montana’s House of Representatives recently passed a similar bill, HB 257, which would block localities from implementing this inhumane mandate among other restrictions on businesses. That bill passed by a much larger margin, 66-34, because only one Republican voted against it.

Generally speaking, Republican legislators across the country have been shockingly tepid about repealing these mandates, despite the lack of evidence of their efficacy and the moving of the goal posts that are now threatening to continue this inhumane mandate indefinitely. Will the North Dakota bill serve as a turning point?

COVID-19 Intelwars Left-wing author Lockdown tyranny naomi wolf Police State TOTALITARIANISM Tucker Carlson watch

Left-wing author Naomi Wolf sounds alarm to Tucker Carlson: America becoming ‘totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes’

As Fox News host Tucker Carlson told left-wing author Naomi Wolf on his program Monday night, there isn’t a whole lot they likely agree on — but Wolf’s alarming observation that America is turning into a “totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes” amid our government’s coronavirus lockdowns is certainly an exception.

What’s the background?

Just days after last November’s presidential election, Wolf famously tweeted that had she known that now-President Joe Biden was open to “terrifying” lockdowns that “won’t ever end because elites love it,” she never would’ve voted for the Democrat:

But Wolf told Carlson that she’s been writing about governmental overreach for a long time, and in fact penned a 2007 book on the subject — “The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot” — that can apply to the “terrible crisis that we’re in” right now.

What else did she say?

Wolf, an adviser for former President Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign, said America is quickly “moving into a coup situation, a police state situation” as elected officials continue to assume “unprecedented” emergency powers under the “guise of a real medical pandemic.”

“That’s not a partisan thing; that transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on,” she told Carlson. “That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution.”

Wolf observed that the “state has now crushed businesses, kept us from gathering in free assembly to worship as the First Amendment provides, is invading our bodies … which is a violation of the Fourth Amendment, restricting movement.” She noted that she can be fined $15,000 a day in New York state for gathering more people in one space than COVID-19 restrictions allow.

Noting that her historical studies have shown her that “would-be tyrants always take” the same 10 steps “when they want to close down a democracy,” Wolf told Carlson she believes the United States is “absolutely moving into what I call step 10,” which is the “suspension of the rule of law — that’s when you start to be a police state, and we’re here. There’s no way around it.”

Wolf added that she’s interviewed “many patriots from all backgrounds and all walks of life who are horrified” by this dangerous shift, but the deep divisions in our country make it difficult to stand united against the march toward greater governmental control.

She added that she’s seeing “autocratic tyrants at the state and now the national level … creating a kind of merger of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of Italian fascism in the ’20s” — and that they’re “using that to engage in emergency orders that simply strip us of our rights: rights to property, rights to assembly, rights to worship, and all of the rights that our Constitution guarantees.”

‘No one gives up emergency powers willingly’

Wolf also offered some sobering predictions, noting that her studies have shown that “no one gives up emergency powers willingly” and that they “always drag it on and drag it on.” She also said that “nowhere in the Constitution does it say” that our rights “can be suspended if there’s a bad disease. We have lived through typhus, cholera, small pox, HIV, tuberculosis, polio, the Spanish Flu … we’ve lived through an attack on our soil. Never have there been months and months and months of emergency powers when we weren’t actually fighting a war.”

She sounded the alarm concerning the “completely unprecedented” response to COVID-19, saying that “lockdowns have never been done before in free societies, and really, we’re turning into a version of a totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes.”

“I really hope we wake up quickly,” Wolf concluded, “because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.”

Carlson wondered, too, if the powers that be want to keep Americans “divided so we won’t have conversations like this.”

covid COVID-19 Intelwars Michelle lujan grisham New Mexico

Report: NM Dem governor held in-person meetings despite COVID guidelines, spent thousands on alcohol, Wagyu beef

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) reportedly did not follow her own coronavirus-related gathering edicts and spent thousands of taxpayer dollars on alcohol and luxurious Wagyu beef last year.

What are the details?

While New Mexico residents faced some of the most strict COVID-related restrictions in the nation, Lujan Grisham was reportedly meeting with her staff in-person — despite advising against such gatherings for New Mexicans.

According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, Lujan Grisham was holding in-person meetings with her Cabinet and New Mexico legislators while telling New Mexico residents not to gather with people they do not live with. The meetings were held at the governor’s mansion in Santa Fe, despite the widespread use of video conferencing software, like Zoom.

Meanwhile, Lujan Grisham spent nearly $13,500 of taxpayer dollars on groceries, alcohol, and services like dry cleaning during the second half of 2020.

“Receipts show more than $6,500 on groceries, from Wagyu beef and tuna steaks to several purchases of alcohol, including bottles of tequila, vodka, gin, wine and beer,” the New Mexican reported.

News of Lujan Grisham’s spending comes after she reportedly gave several staff members salary raises ranging between $7,500 to $12,000.

What was the reaction?

New Mexico House Minority Leader Jim Townsend (R) called Lujan Grisham’s spending “disenchanting.”

“It’s not what tax dollars ought to be spent for,” he said. “In the time when people are hurting all over the state, using their tax dollars to buy Wagyu beef has got to be a little bit disenchanting to many people. I think it’s just more of indication of the problem that we have had and the governor has had connecting with people.”

“Those are the kinds of things that cause people to totally distrust the government,” Townsend added. “When they see these [messages] of, ‘You need to stay home and you can’t have your family for Christmas and you can’t do this and you can’t do that,’ but I’m going to sit here and eat Wagyu beef and buy hundreds of dollars of alcohol with your tax dollars. What in the world would you expect them to think?”

House Minority Whip Rod Montoya (R) had harsher words for Lujan Grisham. He said the Democratic governor’s actions indicate she believes that she is “more privileged than everybody else.”

“It really appears in the Governor’s Office as if she really believes herself to be more privileged than everybody else in New Mexico,” Montoya said, the New Mexican reported. “I didn’t realize the governor was so underpaid that she has to use discretionary money for things that she should be paying for herself.”

What did Lujan Grisham say?

The governor’s office excused her behavior and claimed there was a difference between Lujan Grisham telling New Mexicans not to gather with people they do not live with and Lujan Grisham gathering with people she does not live with.

“There’s a difference between inviting someone into your house for the Super Bowl or someone’s birthday and having three or four Cabinet secretaries there to talk about their budgets amid an unprecedented economic downturn and to work out what we’re going to propose or recommend to the Legislature given the changing economic forecast,” spokesman Tripp Stelnicki said.

Stelnicki told the New Mexican the food and alcohol purchases were for Lujan Grisham, her staff, security, and maintenance workers.

“The governor wanted to sort of try to make things and send them to people, like pozole at Christmas,” he said.

On Friday, Lujan Grisham responded to scrutiny surrounding her spending, admitting that she had “dropped the ball.”

“When people are struggling, should it be fair that residents [of the governor’s mansion] literally have a locked-up grocery store closet … that has libations and catering stuff and food?” she said. “I don’t want New Mexicans to feel like I don’t take seriously their hardship.”

Angela Merkel COVID-19 Dr. anthony fauci fates worse than death Free Will freedom Germany global submission government is slavery Headline News Hoax Intelwars liberty Medical Tyranny no choices ruling class scamdemic surveilled system take back your life traced tracked vaccinate the world vaccinated wake up

Ruling Class: The Scamdemic Won’t End Until The WHOLE WORLD Is Vaccinated

The ruling class is telling us to our faces that they won’t stop this phony charade until the entire population of the globe submits to the COVID-19 vaccine. Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany said on Friday that “the pandemic is not over until all people in the world have been vaccinated.”

 

Merkle says that in addition to sending money, wealthy countries should also share their COVID vaccines with poorer nations. Speaking after a video conference of leaders of the G7 group of large developed economies, Merkel said they had not discussed specific percentages of their vaccine stocks that should be given to poorer countries, according to a report by Reuters. 

The simple question we should all be asking is does the vaccine work? If it does, why does everyone need to be vaccinated? Let those who don’t get it get sick.  If it doesn’t, then what is the real reason why everyone needs to be vaccinated?  Most of the ruling class, including top medical tyranny Dr. Anthony Fauci, has admitted you can still get COVID-19 if you’ve been vaccinated. So that answers all the pertinent questions for those with eyes to see and ears to hear.

Tyrants: “Prepare To Wear Masks & Socially Distance Even After Getting COVID-19 Vaccine”

U.S. Government Diligently Working With Big Tech To Censor ANYTHING That Could Cause “Vaccine Hesitancy”

Fauci: Vaccine “Open Season” Will Begin In April

Medical Journal: Get The COVID-19 Vaccine, Or Be Punished HARSHLY

We all should have plenty of evidence to know this vaccine is not about our health or the health of anyone.  It’s about control and oppression.

Meaning they will continue to destroy everyone’s lives until we willingly submit to our own enslavement.  Wake up, people.  They aren’t even making an attempt to hide it anymore.  They demand our oppression and this will continue until the people of Earth wake up to the truth that there is no such thing as authority.  No one makes a rightful master and no one makes a rightful slave. Calling it “government” doesn’t change that foundational truth.

Coronavirus Coronavirus tyranny COVID-19 Covid-19 tyranny Ebola Fauci Intelwars Mask mandates quarantine

Horowitz: Fauci flip: In 2014, Fauci opposed quarantine of Ebola health care workers

Of all Dr. Fauci’s insidious flip-flops, this is likely the most revealing of all. Before infectious diseases became a political weapon to destroy civilization and individual liberty, Fauci opposed mandatory quarantines even for a rare and deadly virus that, unlike COVID, is very quarantinable.

In many ways, Ebola is the antithesis of coronavirus. Given that it’s rare but deadly, it is the quintessential disease for which quarantine is both necessary and effective. The infection fatality rate is up to 50%, but it only transmits through bodily fluid, so during an initial outbreak, the case count will be measured in single digits, not in tens of thousands like a pandemic flu. The origin, scope, and duration of the quarantine are very limited but necessary. The exact opposite is true of coronavirus, which has a fatality rate of well under 1%, but is also bound to spread to the entire population until it reaches the herd immunity threshold.

Nonetheless, when America experienced an Ebola outbreak in 2014 from people traveling from West Africa, Fauci vehemently opposed state governors who were placing mandatory quarantines on the few and specific individuals who traveled directly from the source of the outbreak.

My former colleague, investigative journalist Jordan Schachtel, uncovered this gem from Dr. Fauci opposing policies by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie forcing health care workers who came in contact with Ebola patients to quarantine for 21 days.

“We appreciate the fears of the American people, but you don’t want to have policy that would have negative unintended consequences. … The scientific evidence is what needs to drive us,” Fauci said on ABC News in October 2014. “If you put everyone in one basket, even people who are clearly no threat, then we have the problem of the disincentive of people that we need,” he added, while also referring to his colleagues who went overseas to treat Ebola patients as “heroes” who are “protecting America.”

He added: “And we know that people who are without symptoms are not a threat to transmitting it. You don’t get Ebola unless you come into direct contact with body fluid. So there are things that we have got to be careful.”

Ebola is the exact sort of virus for which our laws allow quarantine. These were specific people who came directly into contact with a very deadly virus that, all things equal, was not destined to spread to the U.S. unless people brought it in from overseas. Yet Fauci spoke of the dignity of the human being and the need not to quarantine the individual without any evidence of symptoms.

Now, this same man is essentially telling us that for the rest of our lifetimes, we can lock down and forcibly mask all Americans within America who never traveled outside the country and who present no symptoms – all for a virus that is like a pandemic flu and is unavoidable. Even with roughly 35% of the country already having been infected, he still continues to forcibly mask every human being indefinitely, regardless of whether they have symptoms, already had the virus, or had a vaccine.

I often find myself using Ebola as the paradigm of what quarantine laws were designed for. Governors erroneously believe that the police power to quarantine applies to locking down the healthy with the sick. That is simply not true. It was designed for a very limited number of people, like those who have Ebola, which can be easily quarantined. Fauci didn’t believe that those without symptoms, even if they directly traveled from a source country and actually treated a patient, should be quarantined. How can he now believe that quarantine should apply to the entire nation indefinitely for a flu-like virus whose transmission is unavoidable?

As Justice Alito said in a speech at the Federalist Society last November, the 1905 Jacobson v. Massachusetts opinion, which upheld the police powers of a state to combat an epidemic, was rooted in “a local measure that targeted a problem of limited scope.” That was essentially what occurred in 2014 when a handful of people traveling back from West Africa landed at a few airports and there were no more than 11 cases in the United States.

What is happening now is not quarantine but a blockade on our rights until the end of time. As Alito said of the Jacobson decision, “It did not involve sweeping restrictions imposed across the country for an extended period. And it does not mean that whenever there is an emergency, executive officials have unlimited, unreviewable discretion.”

Fauci opposed the effort to even temporarily suspend flights and travel from West Africa, noting that isolating those countries would cause “unrest.” Remember, there is no right for foreigners or even Americans to travel back and forth from a particular country. Yet, to this very day, Fauci believes Americans can be placed under curfew, masks, and every restriction under the sun within their own communities.

Fauci’s opinion in 2014 served the medical and “scientific” elite, just like his view today. In that sense, he is somewhat consistent, at least in his stubborn adherence to the two-tiered justice system of the elites.

Consider the physical, economic, emotional, psychological, and behavioral harms of lockdowns and mask-wearing in California for almost a full year. The governor did this to avoid the spread of a virus that the Los Angeles Times now admits is finally slowing down in L.A. because 35% of the people have likely gotten the virus.

Yet Fauci is still acting as if this is a quarantinable virus!

Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Fauci is never correct.

Coronavirus covid COVID-19 Intelwars minimum wage stimulus

Alarming items stuffed inside House Dem’s $1.9T stimulus bill: Health surveillance, animal COVID studies

House Democrats unveiled Friday the $1.9 trillion economic stimulus package they hope to pass by late next week. Included in the bill are $1,400 stimulus checks and numerous other pandemic-related relief measures, like additional funding for state and local governments and more federal unemployment benefits.

The bill — which was “stitched together” by the Democratic-controlled House Budget Committee, according to Reuters — was also filled with dozens of items completely unrelated to direct pandemic relief.

(READ: The full 591-page bill)

Federal minimum wage increase

The bill would enact a key promise made by President Joe Biden and Democrats, increasing the federal minimum wage to $15 by 2025.

Animal COVID studies

The bill allocates $300 million of taxpayer dollars for the Agriculture Department to “conduct monitoring and surveillance of susceptible animals for incidence of SARS–CoV–2” as guided by the World Organization for Animal Health.

‘Socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers’

Addressing farm loans, the bill states that the Agriculture Department “shall provide a payment in an amount equal to 120% of the outstanding indebtedness of each socially disadvantaged farmer or rancher as of January 1, 2021, to pay off the loan directly or to the socially disadvantaged farmer or rancher.”

The purpose of the debt payments is to “alleviat[e] discriminatory barriers preventing socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers from fully participating in the American farm economy.”

The bill also provides another $1 billion to the same group for “outreach, mediation, financial training, capacity building training, cooperative development training and support, and other technical assistance to socially disadvantaged groups.”

Student loan outreach

The bill allocates $91 million for the “Department of Education to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus, domestically or internationally, including direct outreach to students and borrowers about financial aid, economic impact payments, means tested benefits, and tax benefits for which they may be eligible.”

Fine arts and museums

The bill allocates $135 million to the National Endowment for the Arts and another $135 million to the National Endowment of the Humanities.

Meanwhile, the bill also allocates $200 million to the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Native American languages

The bill also gives $10 million for the “preservation and maintenance of Native American languages.”

Vaccine information

The bill provides $1 billion “to strengthen vaccine confidence in the United States,” “provide further information and education with respect to vaccines,” and “improve rates of vaccination throughout the United States.”

Family planning

Family planning, which could include abortion, gets $50 million.

Global health

The bill provides $750 million for “the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to combat SARS–CoV– 2, COVID–19, and other emerging infectious disease threats globally, including efforts related to global health security, global disease detection and response, global health protection, global immunization, and global coordination on public health.”

Health surveillance

The bill provides another $500 million “to support public health data surveillance and analytics infrastructure modernization initiatives at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”

Airlines

The airline industry, which was controversially bailed out in the first stimulus last spring, gets another $15 billion in this bill.

Andrew Cuomo brainswashing California cases dropping CDC Charlie McGrath COVID-19 dropping elitists fear mongering Gavin newsome government is slavery herd immunity Hoax IMPEACHMENT Intelwars liars LIES manipualtion Natural immunity New World Order Obey owners PCR tests plandemic political careers politicians are slave masters recall efforts rocks ruling class SARS-CovV-2 scamdemic wake up WHO

Covid Cases, like Political Careers, are Dropping Like Rocks

This article was originally published by Jeffrey A. Tucker at the American Institute for Economic Research. 

New York governor Andrew Cuomo, who bears so much responsibility for the mess in his windswept state, last year wrote a book celebrating his role in managing the Covid crises. Now he is facing several investigations and unrelenting media criticism for his management of nursing homes. Not only did he force infected patients back into homes, resulting in many thousands of deaths; he is alleged to have worked to cover up his role and doctor the numbers to make the grim toll look less bad.

And he is not the only lockdown government facing serious problems. Governor Gavin Newsom of California is sinking in popularity and facing a serious effort to recall him – the state’s equivalent of an impeachment. It’s quite the fall from grace for a man who prided himself on his courage in locking his citizens in their homes. Meanwhile, the lockdown state’s Covid numbers look worse than Florida’s, a state with similar weather and demographics that has been fully and beautifully open since September.

At the very time when once-loved heroes of the lockdowns are facing political crises, Florida governor Ron DeSantis is riding a wave of love within his state and around the country. He took a bold stand for science and his gamble seems to be paying off for him. People are pouring into the state in hopes of living a normal life. While commercial and residential real estate are in deep trouble in New York, home prices around Miami are up 25%.

Meanwhile, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott faces his own issues; catastrophic freezing in his state with millions losing water and power, and facing life-threatening conditions. He wants to blame everyone but his own lockdowns that delayed maintenance of power plants and disrupted the normal functioning of the energy sector throughout 2020.

It’s not just political careers that are dropping like stones. The same is happening to Covid cases in the U.S.. The trend seems to defy prediction from January 20, 2021: the new US president said this about Covid-19: “things would get worse before they get better.” Then something very interesting happened. The number of cases of recorded infections of SARS-CoV-2 took a startling dive, falling fully 80% from the daily high on January 8th.

Source: CDC

Deaths have improved too but not at the same rate, yet.

Source: CDC

Keep in mind when you look at all these charts that they must always be viewed with the awareness that they never perfectly reflect reality. They are only as accurate as the inputs. For example, the case numbers are completely off for the first quarter of 2020 simply because there were few if any tests available. It’s entirely possible that cases during this period reached a high in the Northeast of the US that was never seen since, but we cannot know. If that is true, the perception of whether and to what extent we did experience a wicked second wave could be profoundly affected.

Case data are also affected by how many tests are actually administered. Those too are falling dramatically but not enough to account for the drop in cases. Testing can be impacted by people’s willingness to get tests (which in turn reflects the fear of the quarantine) and the extent to which professions are requiring them. The results of the testing are also highly sensitive to the settings of the test itself (the “cycle threshold” used to detect the presence of the virus).

Death data seems more decisively accurate but there are reporting lags that can delay accuracy by many weeks. In addition, there is an error term (how large?) due to misclassification. The CDC itself has made it clear that only in 6% of death cases is SARS-CoV-2 mentioned as the only cause. Those are the easy ones to classify. After that, it gets more complicated. “For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 3.8 additional conditions or causes per death,” says the CDC. Sorting all this out will require years of work in looking at death certificates and weighing factors.

Even given all of this, the drop is so precipitous as to cry out for explanation. It is hard for the politically minded not to notice the timing. It roughly coincides with the inauguration of the new president. If they really are so sensitive to factors like the Cycle Threshold in the PCR tests, would it not be relatively easy to dial-up and dial down the appearance of a pandemic based purely on software settings? The dramatic drop then could in theory be orchestrated. And it is rather amazing that on the day of the inauguration, the World Health Organization released a clarification on tests, urging testers to reduce the number of false positives by paying greater attention to Cycle Thresholds. Anecdotal evidence I’ve encountered suggests that testing labs have responded in kind.

If the WHO and the CDC wanted to avoid conspiracy theories that the pandemic was made to disappear with the incoming administration, they could have better timed this change in the Cycle Threshold.

Another explanation of the drop in cases is not contingent on such a cynical view toward public health. It relies on the tried and true observational truth about the behavior of viruses. Getting them and getting well means acquiring lasting immunities. That combined with vaccines leads to the endemic equilibrium known as herd immunity: the virus finds fewer and fewer hosts in the general population and becomes much more manageable.

This is the view of Professor Marty Makary of Johns Hopkins University. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, he highlights the role of a concept that has almost been absent from public discussion over the course of the last 12 months: natural immunity. He writes:

Why is the number of cases plummeting much faster than experts predicted?

In large part because natural immunity from prior infection is far more common than can be measured by testing. Testing has been capturing only from 10% to 25% of infections, depending on when during the pandemic someone got the virus. Applying a time-weighted case capture average of 1 in 6.5 to the cumulative 28 million confirmed cases would mean about 55% of Americans have natural immunity.

Now add people getting vaccinated. As of this week, 15% of Americans have received the vaccine, and the figure is rising fast. Former Food and Drug Commissioner Scott Gottlieb estimates 250 million doses will have been delivered to some 150 million people by the end of March….

There is reason to think the country is racing toward an extremely low level of infection. As more people have been infected, most of whom have mild or no symptoms, there are fewer Americans left to be infected. At the current trajectory, I expect Covid will be mostly gone by April, allowing Americans to resume normal life.

Many experts, along with politicians and journalists, are afraid to talk about herd immunity. The term has political overtones because some suggested the U.S. simply let Covid rip to achieve herd immunity. That was a reckless idea. But herd immunity is the inevitable result of viral spread and vaccination. When the chain of virus transmission has been broken in multiple places, it’s harder for it to spread—and that includes the new strains…..

Some medical experts privately agreed with my prediction that there may be very little Covid-19 by April but suggested that I not to talk publicly about herd immunity because people might become complacent and fail to take precautions or might decline the vaccine. But scientists shouldn’t try to manipulate the public by hiding the truth. As we encourage everyone to get a vaccine, we also need to reopen schools and society to limit the damage of closures and prolonged isolation. Contingency planning for an open economy by April can deliver hope to those in despair and to those who have made large personal sacrifices.

All of which is to say that we might be in the last days of the pandemic and the early days of seasonal endemicity – which is the natural course of every widespread respiratory virus ever studied. Why anyone imagined that lockdowns, political edicts, coercive controls, and the ruining and wrecking of normal social and economic functioning would change that is beyond comprehension.

Whatever your theory as to why cases are dropping like rocks – natural immunity, PCR testing changes, drops in tests, seasonality – none of it can be credited to political interventions. What the interventions might do, however, is cause dozens if not hundreds of political careers also to drop like rocks.
