Scientists acknowledge the ethical problems — and then ignore them.
Another step in “an explosion of new techniques and ideas for studying early development” of human embryos came last week from Israel. Researchers there have successfully grown mouse embryos for 12 days, which is about half the animal’s natural gestation period.
The news was crowded out by another big announced about human embryos: that separate research teams have created artificial embryo-like structures. Both pose threats to human dignity, but of the two, the Israeli research may be more dangerous.
It seems that ectogenesis is coming closer – the Brave New World vision of hatcheries where artificially conceived babies are gestated in gigantic vats.
The lead author, Jacob Hanna, of the Weizmann Institute of Science, was interviewed about his work in MIT Technology Review. He acknowledges that there are ethical issues.
“I do understand the difficulties. I understand. You are entering the domain of abortions,” says Hanna. However, he says that researchers are already experimenting on and destroying surplus embryos from IVF clinics. Using the same logic, ectogenesis is not really a big deal.
At the moment, there’s effectively a global ban, amongst reputable scientists, to stop investigating embryos at the 14th day of development. But many bioethicists and researchers want to extend this to some unspecified time span. Hanna is one of them. “I would advocate growing it until day 40 and then disposing of it,” Hanna says. “Instead of getting tissue from abortions, let’s take a blastocyst and grow it.”
At the moment, the mouse embryos only develop if they have been attached to the uterus wall, at least briefly. But Hanna says that his team would like to grow the embryo entirely in vitro.
And if the 14-day limit is scrapped, he looks forward to doing similar research on human embryos.
“Once the guidelines are updated, I can apply, and it will be approved. It’s a very important experiment,” says Hanna. “We need to see human embryos gastrulate and form organs and start perturbing it. The benefit of growing human embryos to week three, week four, week five is invaluable. I think those experiments should at least be considered. If we can get to an advanced human embryo, we can learn so much.”
Eventually it might even be possible to grow embryos for their organs, according to William Hurlbut, a doctor and bioethicist at Stanford University. “I don’t think that organ harvesting is so far-fetched. It could eventually get there. But it’s very fraught, because one person’s boundary is not another person’s boundary.”
And in the other big development last week, as mentioned above, four lab groups almost simultaneously published research showing that it is possible to create structures which are nearly identical to human embryos.
According to Nature, “Two teams published their results in Nature on 17 March; last week, two other groups reported similar results on the bioRxiv preprint server that have not been peer reviewed. These experiments offer a window into a crucial time in human development, and an opportunity to better understand pregnancy loss and infertility without experimenting on human embryos.”
Most of what scientists know about the early development comes from studying human embryos up to 14 days – the legal limit in most countries. The research groups have created structures they call blastoids or iBlastoids which could bypass the need for stopping research at 14 days.
Two of the scientists involved in an Australia-based study explain in The Conversation that: “While iBlastoids and blastoids both seem to be structurally and functionally similar to real blastocysts, it is not yet clear exactly how closely they resemble true embryos formed by a sperm and an egg. While the models were shown to share gene patterns and respond in culture in ways characteristic of actual embryos, researchers also saw significant anomalies, such as unsynchronised growth and cells that are not usually present in an embryo.”
“I’m sure it makes anyone who is morally serious nervous when people start creating structures in a petri dish that are this close to being early human beings,” Daniel Sulmasy, a bioethicist at Georgetown University, told NPR. “They’re not quite there yet, and so that’s good. But the more they press the envelope, the more nervous I think anybody would get that people are trying to sort of create human beings in a test tube.”
These developments, linked to pressures from bioethicists to scrap the 14-day rule, suggest that a Second Great Stem Cell War is just over the horizon. The first began when scientists demanded around 2001 that they be allowed to experiment on human embryos but it subsided after 2007 with the discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells. At the time, it seemed impossible to grow embryos in labs beyond 14 days. Now that it looks feasible, there will be another push to grow embryos in Petri dishes up to a new limit.
To invoke Aldous Huxley’s prescient 1932 science fiction novel Brave New World is the oldest, biggest and stalest cliché in bioethics. But, when confronted with this news and with this ethical indifference, imagination fails me.

The media will not talk about the rates of infection, hospitalization and deaths of nonwhites compared to white people. But the Conservative Commandoes Radio show did a segment on this issue as it affects those minority communities dramatically more that the white communities according to the Center for Disease Control.

After months of scathing criticism, US media and politicians are reconsidering Florida’s response to the pandemic.
In July, Adam Weinstein of The New Republicwrote that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was leading Americans “on a Death March” by not embracing the same COVID-19 restrictions as many other US states.
“Keeping churches open—as well as beaches, restaurants, and dividend-yielding commerce—has been a big priority for Ron DeSantis,” wrote Weinstein. “DeSantis has resisted calls from medical experts and Florida residents to return to quarantine measures or shutdowns of nonessential businesses.”
Weinstein wrote that DeSantis, instead of listening to the experts, was simply encouraging residents to behave responsibly, which Weinstein called a “libertarian-dreamer gambit.” Such an approach, he wrote, made DeSantis an accomplice to murder and perhaps even genocide.
“As I write this, the virus has killed 44 times more Americans than died on 9/11,” Weinstein wrote. “Eventually, many of our political leaders will be seen for what they are in this: witting accomplices to homicide on a scale that Republicans might call genocide, if they watched it unfold in another country.”
Florida has had more people die from #COVID19 than the entire country of Germany.
Weinstein’s comments seem hyperbolic today (to put it mildly), but he was hardly the only member of the media and the political class making such claims, even though Florida’s COVID-19 mortality rate was far lower than many other US states (and remains so today).
Florida, with Gov. Ron DeSantis at the helm, has become a global ground zero for Covid-19 cases and a poster child for the Trump administration and its closest allies' failures in responding to the pandemic https://t.co/JQNCUZ8zFJ
More than six months later, US media and politicians are reconsidering Florida’s response to the pandemic, Axios reports: “After a solid year of living with a pandemic, the national press is beginning to ask the question that even Democrats have been quietly pondering in the Sunshine State: Was Gov. Ron DeSantis’ pandemic response right for Florida?”
The article highlights a pair of recent articles—one in The New York Times and one in The Los Angeles Times—that compared Florida’s pandemic response and outcome to that of California, a state where the virus exploded over the winter despite the fact that the Golden State had the harshest lockdown in the US.
Nearly a year after California Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered the nation’s first statewide shutdown because of the coronavirus, masks remain mandated, indoor dining and other activities are significantly limited, and Disneyland remains closed.
By contrast, Florida has no statewide restrictions. Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has prohibited municipalities from fining people who refuse to wear masks. And Disney World has been open since July.
Despite their differing approaches, California and Florida have experienced almost identical outcomes in COVID-19 case rates.
How have two states that took such divergent tacks arrived at similar points?
All four articles try to puzzle out the answer to this riddle, and many answers are offered. Several people interviewed said the comparison between California and Florida shouldn’t be made.
“In many places we have much greater vulnerability than Florida, so it’s comparing apples and oranges,” L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti told the LA Times.
“The comparison of California and Florida is not fair,” Ali Mokdad, an epidemiologist at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, told the paper. “California is a much harder situation than what Florida has to deal with.”
While none of the articles come out and call lockdowns an outright failure, overall it’s clear something has changed since July. For starters, The New York Times points out that fear played a role in shaping at least some COVID policies (and many responses to those policies), which today look ridiculous in hindsight.
“When [Florida] did not close beaches, there was national outrage, though the decision seems obvious in retrospect, given how much safer people are outside,” the Times notes.
The Grey Lady also alludes to the tradeoffs involved in strict lockdowns. Patricia García, a 34-year-old Democrat and writer who moved to Florida from New York in 2017, told the paper she unexpectedly found herself defending DeSantis’s policies to friends back home, because she enjoyed having a life.
“People here, they’ve been able to work. The kids have been able to go to school,” García said. “We have this reputation in Florida of being all Florida Man and crazyland. But I’d much rather be in Florida than California, New York or Chicago.”
Overall, the articles exploring the Florida-California responses and results represent a remarkable shift from last summer, when Weinstein and others were using fevered language comparing DeSantis’s laissez-faire approach to a “death march.”
Such rhetoric was unconscionable for many reasons, not the least of which was the fact that we already knew that COVID-19 wasn’t as deadly as previously believed, modelers had been proven astronomically wrong in their predictions, and there was reason to doubt the efficacy of lockdowns.
It’s clear that the presumption that lockdowns and other government restrictions are effective is gone. This is not to say the debate over the (in)efficacy of lockdowns is over (as Mayor Eric Garcetti’s claim that the California-Florida comparison is not “fair” makes clear). But it does show we’ve entered a new phase in the debate.
For months on end, as fear of the virus took hold, Americans were bombarded with phrases like “stay home, stay safe” and “if it saves just one life” that were designed to make them bow to whatever restrictions bureaucrats and political leaders said were necessary.
“Everybody knows corona is no walk in the park, because you literally can’t walk in the park, but at some point the daily drumbeat of depression and terror veers into panic porn,” comedian Bill Maher observed at one point.
Implicit in the fear and slogans was the idea that government action would protect others and save lives, thus orders were not to be questioned. To challenge this premise or the wisdom of a particular policy invited accusations of selfishness and callousness toward human life. (As did mere inaction.)
Amesh Adalja, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, today makes it clear such thinking is far from helpful.
“This is going to be an important question that we have to ask ourselves: What public health measures actually were the most impactful, and which ones had negligible effect or backfired by driving behavior underground?” Adalja told the Associated Press.
What Was Not Discussed
This shift in thinking is important because it’s related to something overlooked (or mostly overlooked) in the articles.
One might ask, Why must we analyze which public health measures worked? Why not simply take extreme precautions? What’s the harm in that?
The harms, it turns out, are severe.
COVID cases and mortality throughout California and Florida are compared at length in the news articles, as are some economic data (like the fact that California’s unemployment rate is nearly double Florida’s). But there is very little discussion about the unintended consequences of lockdowns, which are legion.
Collateral damage of lockdowns includes severe mental health deterioration, increased suicide, heightened drug and alcohol abuse, education loss, mass social unrest, health procedures deferred or foregone, extreme loneliness, soaring global poverty, and countless others adverse consequences. In many cases, these consequences hit young people the hardest.
“We’ve seen an upsurge in really bad suicide attempts,” and the pandemic is likely behind that increase, Dr. Taranjeet Jolly, an adult and pediatric psychiatrist at Penn State Health’s Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, recently told WebMD.
Indeed, the Associated Press recently reported that doctors are witnessing an “international epidemic” of child suicide.
These are the unseen costs of the lockdowns that will linger for decades. But Dr. Anthony Fauci remains unmoved. The nation’s top infectious-diseases expert continues to warn against easing virtually any restrictions.
“We want the levels of virus very, very low, and then we will have much, much easier time to safely pull back and get the economy and all the other things that we want to be normal,” Fauci told “Face the Nation” over the weekend.
Fortunately, states across the US have seen enough. They are reopening in droves, despite Fauci’s warnings. Last week, Maryland became the latest state to reopen its economy when Gov. Larry Hogan announced that retailers, eateries, and other businesses will be permitted to reopen without capacity restrictions. Governors in Texas, Mississippi, Arizona, Connecticut, Arizona, West Virginia and beyond have announced similar plans.
This is the beauty of federalism. America’s founders understood the best way to form an enduring Union and protect liberty was to disperse power for self-governance and among the states, which serve (in the immortal words of Justice Louis Brandeis) as “laboratories of democracy.” This allows Americans the freedom to vote with their feet.
“I’d much rather be in Florida,” Patricia García told the New York Times.
Thankfully, because of federalism, Americans have that option.

The mask mandate was lifted statewide on March 10, but the very next day a 65-year old woman was tackled to the ground by police after being told by a Galveston Bank of America branch to mask up.
She later recounted in an interview with FOX Houston that she was there to close her account, and that she couldn’t enter the drive-thru. “Ma’am you have to leave…,” the bank staff told her upon entering. “I just want to close my account, I’m gonna get my money and then I’ll leave. I can’t use the drive-thru, I’m pulling the rig.”
Indeed. The crime, the chaos, and the costs of the Biden Administration’s border policy is of no concern to them. What is important to the Biden Administration is expanding their voting base. Rational American’s must come out in big numbers for the 2022 mid-term elections, so that the Democrat Party can be voted out of power. Support pro-Trump candidates.
“Over the next two years, we’re going to see probably five million illegal immigrants come into this country…That $1.9T that we don’t have money to pay for, a lot of that is going to pay for the illegal immigration,” @RealPNavarro said on “Justice.” pic.twitter.com/LOj4nMvhjD
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Sunday that the massive influx of migrant children at the U.S. border is a crisis of President Biden‘s own making.
Appearing on Fox News’ “Justice,” Mr. DeSantis told host Jeanine Pirro that Mr. Biden had adopted “disastrous” immigration policies that signaled to migrants the U.S. had opened its doors.
“It obviously is a disastrous change in policy, Judge,” the Republican governor said. “If you look, Donald Trump had, obviously, the wall, which we all supported, but also safe third-party agreements, as well as ‘Remain in Mexico.’ And guess what happened? The border was under control. So they’ve gone back on those policies, and they’ve created this crisis.
“But I think that this is intentional,” Mr. DeSantis continued. “I think this is ideological. I think that they’re getting bit by this politically now. But I think that this was something that they absolutely anticipated. It’s a disastrous way to start an administration. I think most of the American people are going to be strongly opposed to this, and hopefully, they’ll reverse course.”
“Biden is going in the absolute wrong direction,” he added. “Trump had it right at the border. Biden‘s got it wrong.”
The number of unaccompanied minors in federal custody on the southern U.S. border has reached record numbers under the Biden administration, increasing 25% from last week and forcing children to stay longer in overcrowded, jail-like facilities despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, ABC News reported Monday.
The Biden administration has repeatedly refused to characterize the border situation as a “crisis,” instead calling it a “challenge” as it reopens multiple facilities across the country to accommodate the influx of migrants.
But Americans who are initially glad to hear that more ‘COVID’ relief is supposedly on its way may be surprised when they learn that the latest legislation funnels $350 billion in unneeded taxpayer money to flush the coffers of state and local governments.
State Bailout Money Was Never Necessary
In the president’s telling, this is much-needed aid that will allow municipal governments facing massive COVID-related revenue pitfalls to pay their front-line emergency responders and essential personnel. But the facts reveal a different story.
While it’s plausible on its face to think that COVID would have led to a revenue drop for state and local governments, this never materialized in most places. According to JP Morgan, state revenue was “virtually flat” in 2020 nationwide while 21 states actually saw slight revenue upticks.
Cato Institute economist Chris Edwards noted that while there was a significant downturn in state revenue in the second quarter of 2020, overall it was balanced out by an uptick in the third quarter. “There is no need for more federal aid to the states,” he concluded.
So, the $350 billion in state “aid”—which cost roughly $2,442 per federal taxpayer—Congress just passed wasn’t actually necessary. What’s the driving motivation behind it, then? This becomes clearer when we consider which states are getting the most taxpayer cash.
Top 20 States By ‘COVID’ Bailout Money
Here are the 20 states receiving the most money from the latest spending legislation.
California: $42.3 billion
Texas: $27.3 billion
New York: $23.5 billion
Tribal Governments: $20 billion
Florida: $17.3 billion
Illinois: $13.5 billion
Pennsylvania: $13.5 billion
Ohio: $11 billion
Michigan: $10.1 billion
New Jersey: $10 billion
North Carolina: $8.7 billion
Georgia: $8.17 billion
Massachusetts: $7.96 billion
Arizona: $7.48 billion
Washington: $6.94 billion
Virginia: $6.68 billion
Maryland: $6.21 billion
Tennessee: $6.12 billion
Colorado: $5.9 billion
Indiana: $5.7 billion
At first glance, it’s hard to decipher a clear pattern on this list. It’s not ordered by population, otherwise Florida would be above New York and Georgia would be above New Jersey. So, how did they divvy up the money?
Curiously, the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress factored in not just population but also the number of unemployed citizens. This had the direct effect of skewing the bailout benefits toward states that enacted harsher lockdowns and punishing states who prioritized preserving economic activity.
It must be noted that the list is skewed to include more “blue” states that voted for Biden, 13, than “red” states that voted for Trump, 6. It was, in many cases, Republican governors who opted for lighter restrictions and abandoned harsh lockdowns. In states like Florida, this has averted the unemployment and social destruction other states experienced—without producing noticeably worse COVID deaths.
The Only Explanation is Political Favoritism
One could argue that perhaps focusing on the unemployment rate is meant to ensure the aid goes to the states shortest on revenue. But why not use actual revenue shortfalls, then? Indeed, California tops the list for bailout money, yet the Golden State is actually running a budget surplus!
The only conclusion left to draw, however disappointing, is that Democrats crafted this bailout’s structure to favor states who pursued the COVID-19 policies they agree with—aka, states run by Democrats. Suffice it to say that political favoritism should never determine how limited taxpayer money is spent.
But, unfortunately, cronyism and favoritism are features, not a bug, of big government spending programs. As economist Ludwig von Mises once explained, big government programs concentrate enormous spending power in the hands of a few political officials; all but ensuring that favoritism follows.
“There is no such thing as a just and fair method of exercising the tremendous power that interventionism puts into the hands of the legislature and the executive,” Mises wrote.
It’s simply naïve and ignorant of human nature to expect people—especially the kind of people who become politicians—to dole out trillions of dollars without any hint of favoritism or impropriety. So, while Americans will understandably be angered by the way Congress has carved out hundreds of billions for state governments that don’t need it, they’d be wrong to think this is a one-time mistake.
Corruption and dysfunction are baked into the cake when we entrust the government with vast economic powers.

“The greatest lie ever told is that vaccines are safe and effective.” ― Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz
“The more it (vaccination) is supported by public authorities, the more will its dangers and disadvantages be concealed or denied.” ― M. Beddow Bayly, English physician and anti-vaccination campaigner
“I am and have been for years a confirmed anti-vaccinationist. Anti-vaccination has no backing from the orthodox medical opinion. A medical man who expresses himself against vaccination loses caste. Tremendous pecuniary interests too have grown around vaccination.” – Mahatma Gandhi
“There is no substitute for a militant freedom.” – President Calvin Coolidge
We’ve taken God out of our schools, out of society and even out of America’s pulpits, and for a country founded on the laws of the Almighty, we are facing massive destruction and death unless we confront the evil of America’s encroaching communist revolution and destroy it.
Hitler copied America’s eugenics from the 1920s and our grisly experiments on impaired citizens. Those experiments continue today by men who would be gods; our people face great peril and few perceive the dangers.
Over a year ago, Fauci, Birx, Redfield, and the World Health Organization (WHO) struck fear into the hearts of Americans with the false perils of Covid-19. They were lying to us. The CDC now claims that 94% of all coronavirus deaths were supplementary, meaning, the person had co-morbidities. Less than 10,000 Americans have died from Covid-19 alone. The CDC apparently changed Covid criteria that inflated fatalities ten-fold, and actually broke federal law. Pdf document
The communists in control of America’s federal government have passed a 1.9 trillion Covid relief package that gives little to hurting Americans, but a great deal to bail out democratic failing states. The pork-filled package, which is supposed to help struggling Americans is yet another colossal waste of taxpayer dollars. On Page 613 of the Democrats’ 628-page relief bill is a provision calling for the contribution of “not less than $3.5 billion to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which lists the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as a “key partner.”
Bill Gates, eugenicist and depopulation advocate, whose vaccines have damaged recipients, is funded by our tax dollars. The Gates Foundation makes a fortune on their vaccines…vaccines which have injured, sterilized and killed. (Note: he also has a Jeffrey Epstein problem.)
Gates is being investigated by the Supreme Court of India after it has come to light that his vaccine empire, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has been illegally testing a cancer vaccine on young tribal girls, resulting in devasting health issues for the children they are tested on. Sounds a lot like his buddy Anthony Fauci.
In July, 2020, Just the News reported on Fauci’s career being dotted with ethics and safety controversies inside the National Institutes of Health (NIH). His article included the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID’s) calloused approach, under Fauci’s leadership of using human guinea pigs as test subjects. They were not volunteers. Fauci chose foster children from New York, Illinois, and elsewhere. The children were administered a non-tested AIDS drug without any promises of patient protection. Many of them were not even provided with patient advocates, as required by law, to monitor the children’s health as the drug surged through their veins. As a result of Fauci’s negligence, 10 of the children died. Fauci’s wife, Christine Grady heads the Human Subject Research unit at NIH. Negligent homicide?
First came fear and the lie that there was no treatment…when there was early treatment. It’s been proven by New York physician, Dr. Zelenko and America’s Frontline Doctors led by Simone Gold, M.D., J.D. HCQ, Azithromycin and Zinc were the cheapest early treatments, denied by the likes of Fauci and leftist friends.
India, who is second to China in making America’s drugs, has given their citizens home Covid kits at a cost of $2.65 per person.
Nazi style green camps are being called for by the CDC to prevent the spread of a flu that more than 98 percent of Americans recover from. These quarantine camps are talking about taking you away from your family for up to six months.
IBM is now working on a Digital Health Pass, reprising their Holocaust work. Click on the link and watch the one-minute video. IBM is partnering with mRNA vaccine developer Moderna to provide its computational platforms and machines to enforce vaccine compliance. Edwin Black’s book, IBM and the Holocaust proves the deep involvement by IBM who consciously co-planned and co-organized the Holocaust for the Nazis, micromanaged by its president Thomas J Watson from New York and Paris. Mass murdering more than six million Jews isn’t enough for IBM, it seems. Now they’re targeting six billion human beings with deadly vaccines that install a kind of “operating system” into the human body, hijacking the body’s cells to produce alien proteins via mRNA “software code” that isn’t even human.
Pfizer vaccine makers have demanded countries put up military bases, embassies, and bank reserves as collateral for Covid-19 vaccine injury lawsuits. In the U.S., vaccine makers already enjoy full indemnity against injuries occurring from the vaccine under the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP Act). If you’re injured, you’d have to file a compensation claim with the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), which is funded by U.S. taxpayers.
A significant problem with the CICP is that it’s administered within the Department of Health and Human Services, which is also sponsoring the Covid vaccination program. This conflict of interest makes the CICP less likely to admit fault with the vaccine. The maximum CICP payout you can receive, even in cases of permanent disability or death, is $250,000 per person, and you first have to exhaust your private insurance policy before the CICP kicks in.
Scientists at Sloan Kettering discover mRNA inactivates tumor-suppressing proteins, meaning it can promote cancer.
New York Governor Cuomo sent Covid patients to nursing homes where thousands more were infected and died. Residents who died from the virus may have been undercounted by as much as 50%, according to an investigation conducted by the New York Attorney General’s office, which said that many of those patients died after being moved to the hospital and were thus not counted as nursing home deaths.
First the elderly, now the disabled. Cuomo also sent Wuhan-virus patients to homes for the disabled and that policy remains in effect. At least 552 residents of such homes have died of the virus. More than 6,900 out of the more than 34,552 who live in the facilities have been infected, the state’s Office for People with Developmental Disabilities said.
Most Americans are unaware of United Nations Agenda 21. The goal is the elimination of 85 percent of the world’s population, and they’ve been at it since the Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992.
Sars-CoV-2 has never been isolated, so why the vaccine and what is it really doing?
Even the Robert Koch Institute and other health authorities cannot present decisive proof that a new virus named SARS-CoV-2 is haunting us. This alone turns the talk of dangerous viral mutations into irresponsible fearmongering and the so-called SARS-CoV-2 PCR tests definitely into a worthless venture.
In a request for a study which shows complete isolation and purification of the particles claimed to be SARS-CoV-2, Michael Laue from one of the world’s most important representatives of the COVID-19 “panicdemic,” the German Robert Koch Institute (RKI), answered that, I am not aware of a paper which purified isolated SARS-CoV-2.
This is a more than remarkable statement, it is admitting a complete failure. This concession is in line with the statements we presented in our article “COVID-19 PCR Tests Are Scientifically Meaningless” which Off-Guardian published on June 27th, 2020 — a piece that was the first one worldwide outlining in detail why SARS-CoV-2 PCR tests are worthless for the diagnosis of a viral infection.
One of the crucial points in this analysis was that the studies contending to have shown that SARS-CoV-2 is a new and potentially deadly virus have no right to claim this, particularly because the studies claiming “isolation” of so-called SARS-CoV-2 in fact failed to isolate (purify) the particles said to be the new virus.
Rewards were offered for scientific proof of the process of isolation of SARS-CoV-2 and its genetic substance. No records were forthcoming.
Want that vaccine? It’s going to destroy your immune system and make you susceptible to future viruses that will kill you…don’t believe that? Take a listen to America’s Frontline Doctor, Lee Merritt, M.D., who was interviewed by Senior Editor of the New American Magazine, Alex Newman.
Dr. Lee Merritt explains her belief that America is currently facing what appears to be biological warfare. She says the current situation with the Wuhan virus is an unconventional, unrestricted warfare being waged by billionaire technocratic elites against humanity. Whether the Chicoms released the Wuhan-virus on purpose or by accident is impossible to know, but the implications are enormous. And when it comes to the new vaccines, Dr. Merritt, a former military doctor and orthopedic surgeon who studied biological warfare, reviewed previous animal studies on the technology underlying the vaccines; it paints a dire picture. (Thanks to operation warp speed, Big Pharma was allowed to skip several stages of testing, including animal testing.) Her curricula vitae lets you know you’re hearing the truth.
Dr. Merritt and other physicians knew right away that antimicrobial agents like Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Ivermectin are effective against microbes in viruses, and they knew this before President Trump even mentioned HCQ, although it is not taught to today’s medical students. These treatments have been known since the 1970s, but are discouraged because they would eliminate the $69 billion vaccine industry that fill the coffers of depopulation socialists like Fauci and Gates.
The big shocker in this interview is that the Obama administration allowed the funding of bioweapon virologists all over America. The Covid-19 virus was originally studied at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill until it was removed and then funded by Fauci’s NIH in Wuhan China. Dr. Merritt states that a virologist from the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), which is the regular armed forces of the communist People’s Republic of China, has been funded by us to work in our Army bioweapons lab. Insanity and treason!
These vaccines were rolled out to the public before the FDA even approved them. This new form of vaccine was tried on animals and they were fine until a virus was introduced to them and they all died. There has never been a successful animal study where any have lived, so why are humans now the guinea pigs? Dr. Merritt believes this could be a binary poison with a delayed death inasmuch as no physician knows exactly what this mRNA is targeting even though the vaccine makers claim they do; it’s never been tried before. She suggests that two years later another virus could be released and cause death just as in the animals. The mRNA vaccine actually depletes your natural immune system. China must be thrilled that they’re giving these inoculations to our military.
Alex Newman commented that there were hundreds of Chinese communist virologists working with vaccine makers, Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Glasco Smith Kline. Terrifying!
Hacking the Software of Life
Veteran investigative reporter Leo Hohmann discovered a 2017 Ted Talk presentation by Dr. Tal Zaks, the chief medical officer at Moderna Inc., where he clearly explains in layperson’s language just what the mRNA technology does in vaccines. Zaks states, they are “hacking the software of life,” by injecting their own genetic code into humans. What we are witnessing in this new class of “vaccines” is clearly the wedding together of digital technology born out of the computer age, with Darwinian biology and medicine. It is transhumanism.
In short, the new medical technocrats of medicine actually believe they can improve the design plan of human beings, replacing God. This is communist control of medicine, where man’s desire to dethrone God, making himself god, is the ultimate goal.
On February 4th, 2021, Leo Hohman reported that, “Moderna describes its new vaccine as “a computer operating system” but I was not aware at that time that Zaks had spoken three years ago about this, totally debunking the establishment media’s lie that mRNA vaccines don’t alter your genetic code.”

The media will not talk about the rates of infection, hospitalization and deaths of nonwhites compared to white people. Why is this?
It appears the media is anti-white, because of white supremacy bias, all but ignores the facts that white (Caucasian) people are better equipped to deal this the Covid pandemic than nonwhites. Whites are healthier, wealthier, have access to better healthcare resources and are more educated than nonwhites, with the notable exception of Asians.
Race and ethnicity are risk markers for other underlying conditions that affect health including socioeconomic status, access to health care, and exposure to the virus related to occupation, e.g., frontline, essential, and critical infrastructure workers.

The sheer immensity of this spending is hard to grasp. For context, $6 trillion is more than one-fourth of what the US economy produces in an entire year, according to Fox Business. The COVID spending blowout is at least eight times bigger than the (inflation-adjusted) price tag of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “New Deal.”
For the same $6 trillion in expenditure, the government could have given every federal taxpayer a $41,870 check. Or, to think about it a bit differently, it could have written every American roughly an $18,181 check.
Let’s compare this to what most Americans actually received.
Only someone who fully collected expanded unemployment benefits throughout the pandemic and received all $3,200 in total of the stimulus payments likely received more than $18,181 in direct benefit from this spending package. And that’s a relatively small fraction of the public.
Because of the way the government used outdated (and arbitrary) income data to determine eligibility, many more taxpayers saw nothing or little in exchange for their $41,870 share of the cost, perhaps just the initial $1,200 stimulus or none at all. (Meanwhile, billions in checks went to dead people).
So, for almost all Americans, the actual benefits of the multiple pieces of lengthy stimulus legislation come in far, far below the figure that they would have received if the entire pile of money was just even split up and sent out.
How can that possibly be considered a success? In fact, it’s actually a net negative.
Trade-Offs Are Inescapable
Too often, the stimulus conversation is simply framed around whether we should give money to a certain group of people or program—rather than also including the trade-offs and costs.
The question isn’t just: Should we send people $1,400 “stimulus” checks? It is, instead: Should we send people $1,400 stimulus checks at the cost of taking the equivalent amount (or more if you factor in waste) from other people? It’s not just whether we should send $350 billion to state and local governments—but should we do so at the cost of taking an average of $2,442 per federal taxpayer?
The Government is Not Santa Claus
Money doesn’t grow on trees. Or, as the great economist Ludwig von Mises put it, the government “does not have the powers of the mythical Santa Claus.”
“The truth is the government cannot give if it does not take from somebody,” Mises wrote in Bureaucracy. “They cannot spend except by taking out of the pockets of some people for the benefit of others.”
The government cannot create wealth out of thin air. It can only give anyone anything via three ways:
Directly increasing taxes, which discourages economic growth and directly takes money away from people
Running up debt, which means much higher taxes in the future plus interest, creating a drag on economic growth
There’s no such thing as a free lunch, and, much to the chagrin of spend-happy politicians’, Santa Claus is not real. Government spending doesn’t create wealth; it only transfers wealth, generally destroying a lot of it in the process.
So, unless Americans are actually seeing equal or greater benefit from spending compared to its cost, it’s a raw deal for taxpayers. And for the federal government’s “COVID” spending binge, it’s not even close.
Don’t believe me? Well, did you see $41,870 in benefit from these programs? Or even $18,181?

Did You See That Much in Benefit?
Actually, this is an account of much more than the façade of the fraud. When we analyze all aspects of it, we have to conclude that the Covid plandemic is up there with the biggest lies of all time. It is even bigger than the plan to tear down the Great Wall of China which resulted in the Boxer Rebellion that claimed thousands of lives.
Currently, of all the lies resulting in the Kangaroo Court attempting to impeach former President Trump, the biggest one of all is the one about President Trump inciting the riot at the capitol on Jan. 6th. Nevertheless, the perennial lie that just keeps ballooning as it continues – is the COVID-19 fraud.
According to Jon Rappoport’s January 29th article in the peoplesvoice.org, he is explaining that there is no Covid pandemic, but then he asks why are people dying? He does a great job of explaining it and I am in complete agreement with his contention. He points out that the whole notion that Covid-19 is one health condition is a lie. COVID is not one thing.
He states that this is both the most difficult and yet the simplest point to accept and understand and that we shouldn’t reject the existence of the virus and then say, “So what is the cause of people dying?” There is no ONE CAUSE. There is no one illness. There is no “it.”
Jon goes on to tell us that the biggest sources of illnesses we are dealing with are lung conditions: various kinds of pneumonia: flu and flu-like disease, TB, and other unnamed lung/respiratory problems all of which are being relabeled as Covid. It’s a repackaging scheme. People are dying for those traditional reasons, and their deaths are being called “COVID.” The old is artificially made new, but it is still old.
In this wide-ranging group of people who have traditional lung conditions, by far the largest component are the elderly and frail.
They are dying in nursing homes, in hospitals, in their own homes and apartments. In addition to their lung problems, they have been suffering from a whole host of other conditions and they’ve been treated with toxic drugs. They’re terrified that they might receive a diagnosis of “COVID,” and if they’re given that diagnosis, they’re isolated and cut off from friends and family. They give up and die basically of loneliness.
This is forced premature death.
My wife’s niece was recently diagnosis with COVID and her doctor didn’t send her to the hospital. He told her that they would just kill her there; so, she stayed home and a relative carried her to the doctor’s office a number of times for treatment. I am now happy to report that she is successfully overcoming whatever she had. The fact that people were dying in hospitals, regardless of whether it was from COVID or not, it was labeled Covid which allowed the hospital to receive a huge payment from the government for each death.
America’s hospitals were given a vested interest, not only in people dying, but perhaps in allowing them to die when ventilators were use. And evidently, according to what is being reported, this practice is being implemented all over the country.
The article continues…
Rappoport states that none of the “COVID deaths” in the entire world requires the existence of a new virus. For instance, in Wuhan, where the whole business began, the first “COVID” cases of pneumonia occurred in a city whose air is heavily polluted. In China, every year, roughly 300,000 people die from pneumonia. That means millions of cases. None of these deaths need to be explained by invoking a new virus.
Add to this the fact that the PCR test for the virus is irreparably flawed and useless (for a variety of reasons I have explained in other articles). The test spits out false-positives like a fire hose. Thus, the high case numbers. The authorities have to go to such extremes to paint a picture of a spreading viral epidemic…in order to plant fear and thus compliance in the citizenry. However, there is no evidence that an actual germ is traveling around the world felling people. The “evidence” is invented.
The “pandemic” is invented.
The fraud is promoted.
If you think there are other major reasons to explain “why all these people are dying,” keep in mind that “lung” conditions are an expanded category worldwide. For instance, there are about one billion cases of flu-like illness every year on planet earth. Repackaging/relabeling just a small percentage of those cases alone would account for all official COVID death numbers.
What’s new about COVID is the story. That’s what is being sold: a story about a virus.
Not only are these lies resulting in a huge amount of fraud but also in the fact that hundreds, maybe even thousands, are being allowed to die who very possibly could have overcome whatever their illnesses were. They were deprived of several more years of life, especially if they were only in their seventies, or maybe even their early eighties.
I’m looking forward to my 94th birthday. And since I really don’t have much wrong with me, I think I can avoid hospitals for several years; maybe even forever. I have arthritis, but who doesn’t at my age. I manage to keep it tolerable with the use of apple cider vinegar and honey. This also keeps my immune system up to par. I haven’t had a cold or any kind of a virus for 60 plus years. The only time I had the flu was when I took a flu shot and that was 63 years ago. I haven’t taken anymore flu shots, and I don’t intend to every take another.
According to the research done over a hundred years ago by Dr. D.C. Jarvis of Vermont, the excess acid which enters the bloodstream is kicked out and distributed throughout the remainder of the body to form a bed of immunity against viruses and a host of other illnesses. In Jarvis’s book on arthritis, he states that viruses and other common illnesses cannot live in a body with an acid medium.
If God continues to bless me as He has all of my life, I expect to continue writing these articles for maybe six or seven more years. My proofreader recently told me that if I reached the point that I couldn’t remember all the words for writing an article to just send her the skeleton and she would put the meat on it and I believe her.
Back to what this façade of a plandemic, this contrived, concocted illness and what it is all about.
It’s at the root of aiding and bringing to fruition the one hundred plus year old conspiracy to bring in the New World Order, i.e., a socialist/communist global government.
Perhaps I shouldn’t have used the word “conspiracy,” since it appears most people have a problem wrapping their minds around it, or even to discern a smidgen of how it operates, but this is their “agenda.” Some folks are able to understand how it incrementally, over periods of time, can successfully arrive at the goal of a totalitarian dictatorship running the entire planet. It truly is a conspiracy.
The few people who notice we’re on a slippery slope only occasionally catch a glimpse of something that seems dark and dangerous…but they forget it as few of them have had academic history lessons for the last 100 years.
Nevertheless, the fake pandemic was the key to the globalists’ agenda, i.e., the conspirators’ strategy in deploying the plan to first steal the 2020 Presidential election.
Covid provided the excuse, “necessity” for the so-called authority for mail in ballots. The plan worked perfectly and despite all the documented evidence of fraud, the judicial system in America is as connected to the Deep State as is the DOJ. According to reported cases of evidence, tons of fake ballots were delivered to various district aiding in the duplicitous election results. In many precincts, there were far more mail-in ballots than there were registered voters.
Numerous reports now claim that speaking truthfully about the stolen election could result in being labeled as terrorist activity and those who engage in same could possibly face legal consequences.
“We must now conclude that both political parties (Dems and the GOP) are pro-vaccine, pro-death and anti-humanity. Big Pharma and the global genocide industry have captured all the political leaders everywhere (with bribes and campaign donations), and no prominent political party will dare tell the truth about how vaccines are being used to help rid the world of what globalists consider to be “excess population.”
“A group of Utah doctors have discovered something terrifying in recent mammogram screenings taken at the Breast Care Centre in Salt Lake City, Utah. Women who were recently injected with experimental COVID vaccines suffer from abnormal inflammation of the lymph nodes in their breasts. According to the Intermountain Health Care doctors, women who take the covid-19 vaccines are showing symptoms of breast cancer.” Here is the full report.”
When all aspects of the COVID “crises” are viewed analytically and truthfully, we have to conclude that from the very outset the Covid-19 vaccine was concocted and contrived to produce perceived crises of fear among the people. Like lemmings, they have gone along with the façade of fraud resulting in the globalist totalitarians completely destroying the liberty and freedoms of America. Their intention is to bring our country down to the level of third world nations.
Many believers understand the end times, the rapture of the church, and the anti-Christ’s reign, but believers in other nations who have experienced the slavery and destitution of communism had hoped the Lord would come for them. We don’t know the time when we will be caught up to forever be with Him. Only God know. Until then we must work to save our nation, we must trust in the Lord’s plans for all his people in our Judeo-Christian society. Hard times often bring new believers in the Lord, and as those of us who believe in the one true God, we must be ready to help those who need to know Him.
Should we be approaching the end times spoken of in Daniel, Thessalonians and Revelation, let me encourage all of those who do not know Jesus to make every effort possible to accept Him as your personal Savior, thereby avoiding being left behind to go through the many terrors during the seven years of anti-Christ’s reign.
I agonize when thinking about the many who have neglected taking care of this most important thing. I think of the many parents who have not exposed their precious children to the saving knowledge of Messiah and leading them to the Lord God Almighty.
Whatever happens in America, the Lord God has it all in His Hands.

The flamboyant gay activist speaks out in favour of ‘conversion therapy’.
The flamboyant gay activist Milo Yiannopoulos made headlines this week. The conservative British polemicist and writer says that he is now an “ex-gay”.
The news was overshadowed by the hullabaloo over a couple of other Brits who were interviewed by Oprah Winfrey.
Yiannopoulos is not as well known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, but he has a message which is more important than their woes. He is speaking out about his lived experience as a gay man at a time when Australia and most Western nations are outlawing not only therapeutic assistance but even the slightest suggestion that a person’s sexual attraction could change.
And the most unlikely witness to this is Yiannopoulos.
“Of course, I was never wholly at home in the gay lifestyle — Who is? Who could be?” Yiannopoulos declared in an interview.
On a personal note, I feel the same way and so do others who have walked away from the cult of LGBTQ+ indoctrination, liturgies and identity politics.
To dare to leave the cult is damning. “Serious harm will befall you… your government supports you and believes in you… you are not broken and in need of fixing!” Australian leaders SteveMiles, Chief Minister Andrew Barr and Premier Daniel Andrews ingratiate themselves with LGBTQ+-identifying youth, pouring millions of dollars into mental health programs that seldom help their pain.
For Yiannopoulos to leave the cult – and his boyfriend, who has now been demoted to housemate – to pursue another man named Christ, rejecting decades-old doctrines of the LGBTQ+ sect for the millennia-old doctrines of the Catholic Church, will be a serious blow to LGBTQ+ proselytizing.
My own life has changed dramatically, though it crept up on me while I wasn’t paying attention.
It feels as though a veil has been lifted in my house — like there’s something more real and honest going on than before. It’s been a gradual uncovering, rather than a dramatic reveal. Maybe that lack of theater or spectacle is a sign the gay impulses truly are receding?
What, we should ask, is so harmful in this story to Yiannopoulos or to the community?
A recent story in Newsweek backs up what Yiannopoulos says. Scott Newgent, a 48-year-old, told her story of medical transition from female to trans-male. It reveals the brutal reality of attempts to assuage what in part is often a mental disorder.
This biological female underwent seven surgeries, experiencing a pulmonary embolism, an induced stress heart attack sepsis, a 17-month recurring infection, 16 rounds of antibiotics, three weeks of daily intravenous antibiotics, arm reconstructive surgery, lung, heart and bladder damage, insomnia and hallucinations, and PTSD. This cost a mere US$1 million. She also lost her home, car, career and marriage.
Anyone with a scrap of decency needs to reflect on what this woman has undergone at the hands of medical professionals. Each of these doctors was playing a role in a parodic operetta, singing a lie – that a genetic female can truly become male, and a genetic male a female. Our politicians are voting in laws to permit the same traumas and tragedies and threatening resistance with up to A$200,000 fines and 10 years imprisonment.
What do Australian state governments gain by pointing people down the pathway of trans-perdition? My guess is that they desperately need some respite from incessant tirades of LGBTQ+ activists who will not stop until everyone experiences the same level of pain – and until everyone believes the lie that this pain must be reframed as “freedom”.
Now Western Australia is set to follow Queensland, the Australian Capital Territory and Victoria. Premier Mark McGowan has promised – with fewer than five days before a state election — that he is “opposed to gay conversion therapy as a cruel and misinformed practice”.
A 28-year-old man in Western Australia, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse as well as a victim of and rape, wrote to McGowan on December 15 last year. He asked:
Will Western Australia be a safe place for me to continue to safely walk along what to date has been a pretty treacherous journey concerning my sexuality? I will be considering whether to stay and invest in Western Australian society or to return over to the Eastern states in the New Year and so would be grateful for a response prior to Christmas if possible.
McGowan responded this week, stating that, if re-elected, he “remains committed to LGBTIQ+ law reform”, including considering “legislation in relation to the recognition of a person’s sex, change of sex, or intersex status”.
The abuse survivor and rape victim wrote back within hours informing McGowan as follows:
I left Victoria and came to WA [Western Australia] to address and start the recovery process from these horrendous traumas in my life, knowing that Victoria would no longer remain a safe place for me to recover. At times I have been left experiencing depression, suffering from anxiety and panic attacks, as well as feeling suicidal.
Since starting therapy, counselling, and prayer here in WA around my same-sex attraction, past gender dysphoria, childhood sexual abuse, and rape, these health issues mentioned above have decreased dramatically and I am experiencing the most mental stability I have in my entire life.
I am now deeply fearful for my own wellbeing as a resident in WA and for the wellbeing of many others like me. With the potential banning of successful and life-giving therapy, counselling and prayer around sexuality and gender confusion, what will happen to my mental health? Will I be forced back into the mental hell that I used to experience?
Australian politicians would benefit from heeding Yiannopoulos’ parting words:
The best advice I can give others in my situation is: Check your pride, not your privilege. So often it’s vanity or conceit or self-satisfaction that gets in the way of accepting Christ. Learn to catch it before it takes root, and difficult things suddenly don’t seem so difficult.
Those exiting the LGBTQ+ community all know that gay pride negatively affected their mental health and that embracing humility opened up an unimagined world of benefits.
Yes, bigotry is still very much alive and well. And it spews forth from the ranks of those who claim to suffer the most intolerance. As Alexandra Marshall states in her article in The Spectator, “the needs of the collective outrank the personal rights of the individual to decide their sexual orientation”.
What is a healthy way forward?
Yiannopoulos said in his interview: “Over the next decade, I would like to help rehabilitate what the media calls ‘conversion therapy’. It does work, albeit not for everybody.” I suggest that more people, young and old alike, join him in backing sound methods of conversion therapy. A change of heart (and policy) might help the young fellow snubbed by Premier McGowan.

“….who should be the ultimate authority over each human being’s genetic software code? If we truly live in a free society, wouldn’t it stand to reason that we would want to have an energetic debate over how to answer that question?” – Leo Hohmann
It is no surprise in this day and age that social media is trying to silence anyone with questions about the safety and efficacy of the Covid vaccine, or whatever you want to call the Pfizer or Moderna shot because it isn’t a vaccine in the normal sense that we are accustomed to receiving for the flu, for example.
Before I start a war here on what I will just call “The Shot,” my philosophy is this: Do your own research, and choose what you think is best for you. After all, haven’t we been told for decades now that we have “choice” when it comes to our bodies.
Easier said than done because everywhere you turn these days, the question looms: Did you get the shot?
If you say no, the look that follows is usually a stern one. Is that because the person asking has had the shot and thinks you are mean and selfish and will be a walking Covid time bomb? If so, why are they worried, they are now protected by The Shot, right?
Or, are they deep-down wondering if they did the right thing themselves by allowing the injection that will alter their body’s God-given genetic code.
Of course, there are those who haven’t gotten The Shot and do want your opinion.
I guess you get my drift. For now, I’m holding off.
I’m not an anti-vaxer. In fact, as I cleaned out accumulated paperwork from a busy life this winter, I came across medical records from when I traveled to Vietnam in 1998. My doctor then insisted I be vaccinated for what looks like every tropical disease known to mankind that year. I got the works!
I’m older and wiser now and I think that we simply do not know enough about the new pharmaceutical injection being shoved down our throats (jabbed into our arms!). Indeed it is the big campaign that frankly makes me a skeptic. I am resisting being herded.
I am angry too because I see all around me that the tyranny being created by The Shot question is literally destroying friendships and breaking-up family relationships and generally furthering the destruction of social cohesion, the last thing this country needs right now.
Did you see that Twitter has new rules in its efforts to silence skeptics?
Mention your concern about The Shot five times and you are toast at Twitter.
Of course for me that doesn’t matter as they have already suspended my account and taken away my followers.
Adding insult to injury they won’t let me delete my account (it sits there unused). Why can’t I delete it? Because, they inform me, it is suspended!
VAX THOUGHT POLICE: Anyone who criticizes coronavirus vaccines FIVE times will be banned from Twitter
(Natural News) Anyone caught spreading “misleading information” about Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccines on Twitter will be given five chances to stop before being forever banned from the social media platform, the company recently announced.
A new “strike system” will reportedly keep track of the number of times a Twitter user says something bad about Chinese virus vaccines. Each time the punishment will increase until eventually that user is struck from the platform for good.
This is Twitter’s way of ensuring that as many people as possible are misled into taking an experimental gene therapy “vaccine” that will forever alter their DNA through genetic engineering and reprogramming.
I thought all Covid vaccine skeptics were on the political right!
Look at this, Robert Kennedy Jr., a big Dem with an anti-shot campaign, is banned from Instagram! Me and Kennedy on the same side of anything! Remarkable!
Anti-vaxxer Robert F Kennedy, 67, is BANNED from Instagram for ‘repeatedly sharing false claims about COVID-19’ – including theory that Bill Gates is pursuing Marxist plot to destroy US sovereignty
It is one thing to silence our speech, but imagine if the fascists get to this stage and demand proof that you took The Shot to board a plane, or to take part in other types of public events and gatherings!
Ironically I saw that the World Health Organization is opposing any restrictions involving so-called vaccine passports because it would limit the movement of poor migrants (less likely to have been vaccinated) around the world.
All of that is a lead-up to the primary article I want to bring to your attention.
Moderna’s top scientist: ‘We are actually hacking the software of life’
These are concluding paragraphs but please read the whole thing…..
These scientists truly believe that the human body is nothing more than a machine that can be hacked into and reordered according to some programmer’s instructions.
The same ground-breaking nature of this research that excites some, is what horrifies others.
A person’s genetic makeup is, as Dr. Zak said, “the software of life.”
If this is true, then who should be the ultimate authority over each human being’s genetic software code? If we truly live in a free society, wouldn’t it stand to reason that we would want to have an energetic debate over how to answer that question?Shouldn’t it be the number-one issue being debated in Congress and the media? Instead, nobody is allowed to even ask these questions without being threatened, censored, rebuked, deplatformed. Members of the corporate media who dare broach the question get fired.
Contrary to what some scientists believe, we are not machines. We are human beings with bodies, souls and free wills. Anyone who tries to mandate the acceptance of an experimental gene-altering treatment is going against the international Nuremberg Codes, which require informed consent of any experimental treatment.
And, now I am going to do a test and put this on my facebook page. It will be off topic as my page is mostly about refugees and immigration, but I hear facebook is scouring its pages looking for people who are asking questions about The Shot.
p.s. Yesterday I wrote a post on how Biden is p******-off the progressives because he hasn’t yet signed the order to allow 62,500 refugees into the US before September 30th. People on Facebook are very interested in the refugee/migration issue as my facebook data indicates—I had a reach of 100,000 there in the last month.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is seeking volunteers from among its agencies to assist in dealing with an “overwhelming” migrant surge at the U.S.-Mexico border, as the Biden administration continues to deny that there’s a crisis.
“Today, I activated the Volunteer Force to support Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as they face a surge in migration along the Southwest Border,” DHS Secretary Mayorkas said in an email to employees on March 8, obtained by several news outlets.
“You have likely seen the news about the overwhelming numbers of migrants seeking access to this country along the Southwest Border,” Mayorkas said.
“President Biden and I are committed to ensuring our Nation has a safe, orderly, and humane immigration system while continuing to balance all of the other critical DHS missions.”
DHS volunteers, in a non-law enforcement capacity, will work to carry out tasks such as assisting in control rooms, doing housekeeping, preparing meals, doing supply and prescription medicine runs, and managing property, Fox News reported.
“Please consider joining the Volunteer Force to again provide needed humanitarian support along the Southwest Border and relief for our CBP colleagues,” Mayorkas wrote.
“I also realize these are uncertain times and being away from home may be concerning. But today your colleagues need assistance carrying out their mission to help others, and DHS is going to support you while deployed,” he said. “Your health and wellbeing will remain priorities.”
Illegal Crossings Spike
The number of illegal crossings at the southern border has steadily risen since October 2020. The number of encounters at the southwest border between October 2020 and January was 296,259, an increase from 164,932 in the year-earlier period, according to data from the CBP, representing a 79.6 percent increase.
Since taking office on Jan. 20, President Joe Biden has signed a flurry of executive orders that dismantled the Trump administration’s border security measures.
On his first day in office, Biden signed executive orders and issued memos to temporarily suspend deportations of illegal aliens, reverse former President Donald Trump’s ban on travel from terror-prone countries, halt border wall construction, stop adding people to the Trump-era 2019 “Remain in Mexico” program, preserve and fortify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and release a sweeping immigration package to Congress that includes amnesty for millions of asylum seekers and illegal immigrants.
The attorneys general of Arizona and Texas have sued Biden over a memo from the administration that ordered a freeze on the majority of deportations for 100 days. A federal judge temporarily blocked the order on Jan. 26.
The Biden administration’s proposal to legalize about 11 million illegal aliens living in the United States—something he vowed during his campaign—was formally introduced by Democrats in Congress last month.
After visiting the CBP facility in Edinburg, Texas, at the southern border over the weekend, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) described the situation as “unstable.” He noted that the areas he toured have been seeing a huge spike in migrants, with more than 6,000 apprehended at just one station.
On March 6, Texas began an operation to counter the growing crisis, activating and deploying National Guard troops and other law enforcement officers to the border to combat drug and human smuggling.
Biden hasn’t yet acknowledged the crisis or announced any concrete plans to address the growing numbers of illegal crossings. When asked by a reporter this week whether there’s a crisis at the border, Biden replied, “No, we’ll be able to handle it.”
The White House and the DHS didn’t immediately respond to a request by The Epoch Times for comment.
“There is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the pandemic. I’ve never heard such nonsense talks about vaccines. You do not vaccinate people who aren’t at risk from a disease. You also don’t set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with a vaccine that hasn’t been extensively tested on human subjects.” – Dr. Michael Yeadon – Former Vice President and Chief Scientist of Pfizer
“One of the medical profession’s greatest boasts is that it eradicated smallpox through the use of the smallpox vaccine. I myself believed this claim for many years. But it simply isn’t true!” – Dr. Vernon Coleman

A recent Johns Hopkins study claims more than 250,000 people in the U.S. die every year from medical errors. Other reports claim the numbers to be as high as 440,000. Medical errors are the third-leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer. Medication errors account for one out of 131 outpatient deaths and one out of 854 inpatient deaths. Medication-related errors occur frequently in hospitals; not all result in actual harm, but those that do are costly. These are accidental deaths, but since tort reform, negligence and medical malpractice have risen. Tragedies occur because of error, but there’s a far darker side.
American citizens have been used as guinea pigs for decades, resulting in hundreds of thousands of early and often painful deaths of those in the general populace and in our military.
Nuclear Guinea Pigs
From the 1940s to 1970s, American citizens were used as “nuclear guinea pigs,” to borrow a phrase from the Congressional report that lays out the record. They were deliberately exposed to dangerous radioactive substances. These experiments were scientifically, as well as ethically, questionable. Rep. Edward Markey (D-MA) pressed the Department of Energy for documents on Americans who suffered. Link, Link
At the time, the dangers of radio-iodine were known and Markey detailed these tests which took place all over America. Subjects included elderly people, prisoners, the terminally ill, and even babies. Ostensibly, these people, or those legally competent to act for them, had consented to the tests. But it’s hard to believe that it was truly informed consent. These experiments were repugnant because human subjects were essentially used as guinea pigs and calibration devices.
When the vast wartime factories of the Manhattan Project began producing plutonium in quantities never before seen on earth, scientists working on the top-secret bomb-building program grew apprehensive. Fearful that plutonium might cause a cancer epidemic among workers and desperate to learn more about what it could do to the human body, the Manhattan Project’s medical doctors embarked upon an experiment in which eighteen unsuspecting patients in hospital wards throughout the country were secretly injected with the cancer-causing substance. Most of these patients would go to their graves without ever knowing what had been done to them.
Reporter Eileen Welsome spent 10 years researching the fifty-year cover-up surrounding the plutonium injections as well as the deceitful nature of thousands of other experiments conducted on American citizens in the postwar years. The result was her Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Plutonium Files.
In 1932, the government used 623 men as human guinea pigs in a 40-year medical experiment. This in itself is bad enough, but for 40 years these black men, predominately poor and uneducated, were deliberately kept in the dark about what was happening to them. This “experiment” continued for 20 years after the Nuremburg trials and the set of standards that came out of the trials called the Nuremburg codes. The civilized world agreed that human beings would not be used as research animals and that doctors would never forget their first duty to heal their patients.
The United States Public Health Service (PHS) (now the CDC) conducted this experiment. More than half of the 623 men had syphilis, the others, a control group, did not. They were told they were being treated for “Bad Blood.” The men were told they’d get free lunches, free medical care, free burial and 100 dollars. That may sound odd, but at the time burial money and free medical care were coveted. Despite the development of penicillin in the early 40’s and the availability of it by 1944, the men were never treated. In actuality, the “experiment” was to see what illnesses developed and how long it took the men to die.
No PHS officer who had been directly involved in the study felt any contrition. Link
Polio Vaccine and SV40
In 2010, I wrote about the polio vaccine and its lasting effects. In the 1960s, we had both needle and sugar cube vaccines for polio, even though polio was officially over and done with in 1959. The vaccine was grown on Simeon monkey kidneys and contaminated with SV-40 monkey viruses which caused soft tissue cancers for those who received the vaccine. From 1954 to 1963, almost every dose of polio vaccine produced in the world was given to 98 million Americans and was contaminated with the cancer-causing virus. Despite knowing this vaccine caused cancer, the government continued giving it to Americans.
Former virologist, John Martin, MD, PhD, said, “SV-40 infection is now widespread within the human population almost certainly as a result of the polio vaccine.” This vaccine was given to millions of American and European children. SV-40 has been discovered in tumors of children never inoculated with the vaccine leading most scientists to believe it is genetically passed.
When questioned on the safety of the polio vaccine he developed, Jonas Salk said, “It is safe, and you can’t get safer than safe.” Sadly, the polio vaccine’s growth on Simeon Monkey kidneys has caused an American cancer epidemic in baby boomers.
Millions of Americans are unaware that government officials and leading scientists have played Russian roulette with the health of American citizens for over a century. The US Government has a secret history of grisly experiments. Sadly, despite the Nuremburg Codes, these unethical medical and psychological human experiments continue today and here come the Covid-19 vaccines.
Out of dozens of drug makers, Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson and Johnson are the leading vaccine producers. Most Americans are not aware that all vaccine makers worldwide have been given a free pass from any legal prosecution regarding any deaths or injuries caused by the new vaccines. Pfizer is still engaging in phase 3 trials for two more years, which means their covid-19 vaccine is still very much in experimental stages, even though it is widely offered to the public.
Many scientists and physicians have stated there is no real necessity for a vaccine, that the numbers of deaths from Covid, along with their skewed PCR false positive tests, are inflated to promote fear in the public allowing lockdowns, masks and the destruction and elimination of middle class small businesses. Overall COVID-19 recovery rate is between 97% and 99.75%. So why the vaccine?
The same thing was accomplished by Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and his good buddy, our former Senator Lamar Alexander, who promoted internet taxes even on those companies who had no physical presence in your state, overriding the 1991 Supreme Court decision. Small businesses were bought out by Amazon and others and they lost the ability to survive by government’s forced implementation of 25,000 nationwide tax codes at a cost far above their yearly sales.
The ultimate goal is the total elimination of the middle class, while government and big business grow larger and stronger.
It is a well-known fact that Anthony Fauci denied the use of the safe and cheap 60-year-old drug Hydroxychloroquine for treatment in early diagnosis of COVID-19. He preferred his more expensive drug, Remdesivir, along with the vaccine that he and Bill Gates promoted to end Covid-19, an untested and dangerous inoculation that will fill their personal coffers.
He also originally stated that mask wearing was unnecessary, but changed his mind and now has decided we should wear two masks to keep Covid from spreading, albeit there is no proof whatsoever that masks stop Covid. In fact, masks actually can make you more susceptible to the virus…because we touch them, re-use them, carry them in our purses, and inundate them with countless germs that we then breathe into our lungs every time we reuse it. And how thrilled the totalitarian dictatorial commies in our governments were when they saw how many lemmings donned the face diapers in compliance with the draconian orders.
And those astronomical death counts…! As I’ve previously mentioned, the John Hopkins report stated that there were no more deaths in 2020 than there were in previous years. Yes, the yearly death rate is the same. Why? Because in 2020, no one seemed to die of seasonal flu, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc. Every death was Covid.
Covid actually killed the ability for Americans to think, use logic and common sense. What Covid ultimately decimated was the economy, the working middle class and millions of jobs. It destroyed forever millions of small businesses, human connection, love and compassion. Even more barbaric was the cruelty of our elderly loved ones dying alone without family being close.
Now those same mask-wearing American lemmings are standing in line hoping and praying for an untested vaccine to be shot into their arms, not once, but twice.
Depopulation and Eugenics
Is that the ultimate goal? It certainly seems that way when a Chinese virus was released upon the world, and five democrat governors thought nothing of putting Covid infected patients in nursing homes, ultimately killing tens of thousands more elderly with susceptible comorbidities. One need only read Earth Summit, Agenda 21, the United Nations Programme of Action from Rio. They’re main goal is depopulation.
And Anthony Fauci has long been funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Fauci was photographed with a coterie of globalist elites in 2001 at the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy event. The unassuming government bureaucrat was present alongside such titans of globalism as Ted Turner, David Rockefeller, George Soros, and Bill Gates Sr. Records reveal that Gates Sr. was a board member of Planned Parenthood prior to the Roe v. Wade 1973 Supreme Court decision, and Bill Gates himself said in a video clip that his father was the “head of Planned Parenthood.”
Bill Gates believes we need a vaccine to stop the spread of Covid-19…even though 98% of the people who contract Covid recover…Robert Kennedy, Jr. has made it clear what he thinks of Bill Gates and his devastating vaccine results in foreign countries.
The eugenics movement took root in the United States in the early 1900‘s, led by Charles Davenport (1866-1944), a prominent biologist, and Harry Laughlin, a former teacher and principal interested in breeding. It became a popular social movement that peaked in the 1920s and 30s but was perused and used by the Nazis. During this period, the American Eugenics Society was founded, in addition to many local societies and groups around the country (PBS 1998). Members competed in “fitter family” and “better baby” competitions at fairs and exhibitions. Movies and books promoting eugenic principles were popular.A film calledThe Black Stork (1917), based on a true story, depicted as heroic a doctor that allowed a syphilitic infant to die after convincing the child’s parents that it was better to spare society one more outcast.
The eugenics movement in the US quickly focused on eliminating negative traits just like Margaret Sanger’s hatred of black Americans. “Undesirable” traits were concentrated in poor, uneducated, and minority populations. In an attempt to prevent these groups from propagating, eugenicists helped drive legislation for their forced sterilization (Norrgard 2008). The first state to enact a sterilization law was Indiana in 1907, quickly followed by California and 28 other states by 1931 (Lombardo n.d.). These laws resulted in the forced sterilization of over 64,000 people in the United States.
At first, sterilization efforts focused on the disabled but later grew to include people whose only “crime” was poverty. These sterilization programs found legal support in the Supreme Court. In Buck v. Bell (1927), the state of Virginia sought to sterilize Carrie Buck for promiscuity as evidenced by her giving birth to a baby out of wedlock (some suggest she was raped). In ruling against Buck, Supreme Court Justice Wendell Holmes opined, “It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. Three generations of imbeciles are enough” (Black 2003). This decision legitimized the various sterilization laws in the United States.
In particular, California’s program was so robust that the Nazi’s turned to California for advice in perfecting their own efforts. Hitler proudly admitted to following the laws of several American states that allowed for the prevention of reproduction of the “unfit” (Black 2003).
The US eugenics movement began to lose power in the 1940s and was completely discredited following the horrors of Nazi Germany. With modern advances in genetic testing, it is important to keep America’s eugenics history in mind. Yet, can we avoid repeating this dark chapter, if so many in our country don’t know about it?
As did Sanger, Gates believes in the eugenicist Thomas Malthus’s idea that the sustainability of the world’s resources is completely dependent upon maintaining population control. Ironically, Gates believes that improving health care, primarily through vaccinations, will accomplish this.
In part two we’ll discuss the many deaths and disabilities already evident from the unnecessary Operation Warp Speed Covid vaccines.
