Why Some People Know What Others Don’t

The Two Faces of Barbara Malmet

One of the conundra that we face as a nation today is the absence of what the ancient Greeks called homonoia.  It’s hard to translate into English but if I had to come up with a good substitute, I’d say it is “like-mindedness”.

In the Slavonic languages, a close approximation would be sobornost.  Whether in Greek or Slavonic, it means something to the effect that a people must have some unity of purpose, some commonality as it were, if they are to remain a people. 

Whether we call it homonoia, sobornost or like-mindedness, it is necessary for a nation to survive.

Clearly, we don’t have that anymore.  Whether we can recapture it is another matter entirely.  Regardless, unless we have it, then as a nation we’re pretty much on the road to some type of formal secession, regional fracture, or civilizational collapse.  I mean, we shouldn’t fall into the delusion that once a country exists, it’s always going to exist.  Look around you:  where is Akkad?  Or Sumer? The medieval kingdom of Navarre for that matter?  

In our modern case, this dysmonoia is exacerbated by the fact that the organs of information, which we call “media”, are not interested in providing real information to an informed public.  If anything, just the opposite.  It’s called “gaslighting”.  And then there’s the fact that based on our individual partisan inclinations, we often don’t consume news from organs that we view with suspicion.  (A prejudice not without some merit, I must say.)

Not that it really matters; only under the rarest of circumstances are the purveyors of false information called to account. An example would be Dan Rather, who only lost his job after knowingly promoting a story late in the 2004 election cycle which was proven false by rank amateurs within 48 hours.  And even then it took another six months before he “retired”.  Dan Rather was late to the game:  Walter Cronkite, his much-admired predecessor purposely lied about the Tet Offensive back in 1968.  Unlike Rather, he suffered no consequences. 

The list of misrepresentations, misinformation, and outright lies is a long one.  Back in the 1930s, The New York Times knowingly hid information of the Holodomor in Ukraine, mass starvation perpetrated by “Uncle Joe” Stalin.  It shouldn’t have been too hard to uncover:  over seven million people died in that genocide.  Walter Duranty, the Times star reporter on the ground in Moscow, knew about this atrocity but kept his mouth shut.  Yet was still awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his “journalistic work” while stationed there.

That was then, however; this is now.  In days past, we had three television networks; now we have hundreds, many of which are “narrowcasted”.  And then there’s the phenomenon of the rest of the social media out there.  As such, we should all be aware of certain major news events and be impacted by them to a similar degree. 

But we don’t and it’s by design.  If we were, we’d at least have some common referents which would make dialogue possible (and violence less so).  Instead of knowing that the president’s son has been compromised by the Chinese Communist Party, half the nation is studiously ignorant.  Now, had it been Donald Trump’s son, we’d never stop hearing about it.  The only thing we all know about is the dating habits of the Kardashians.  

So why, in this age in which there are literally hundreds of channels on cable TV and tens of thousands of podcasts, are we so ignorant about major issues of the day?  This makes us unable to talk to each other about things that matter in a civil manner or even understand each other. Part of the reason is that this is what “they” want.  By gaslighting us, the Establishment gives us only the information that they want us to have.   

Here’s one of the best examples of gaslighting.  God bless Joe Rogan for ripping Dr Sanjay Gupta and CNN a new one.  https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/stacey-lennox/2021/10/15/joe-rogans-dust-up-with-ccns-dr-sanjay-gupta-exposes-the-narrative-n1524061

It’s not that it’s impossible to grab the attention of an entire nation:  we saw that in the 90s with the Clarence Thomas hearings, and not that long ago with the Brett Kavanaugh ones.  Certainly, 9/11 grabbed our collective attention.  These were nation-shaking events to be sure, but, at the risk of putting my partisan hat on, we should all know that the Chinese have kompromat on Hunter Biden.  That may not be as earth-shaking as the Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor but it ranks somewhere up there with the Rosenberg espionage ring. 

In other words, we should care.  A presidential election hinged on it; perhaps the future of our Republic, as well. 

But we don’t.  Or more specifically, only some of us do.  The reason we don’t all know is that the official media organs have gone out of their way to quash scandals that would be embarrassing to their partisan positions.  Other than the fact the news we received is a lot sleeker than what was obtained in the Soviet bloc, it’s not essentially any different.   It’s a matter of degree, not kind.  Thus, as a nation, as a collective, a society, what have you, we don’t care.  And thus, we have no homoneia.   And then there’s the fact that it is easier to ignore the stories we don’t like because the Establishment goes out of its way to discredit alternative sources of information. 

That last thing is a biggie, folks.  Think of it as reverse propaganda:  rather than being told what to think about a certain event, we are not told about the event in the first place.  Our news is curated.  The Hunter Biden laptop scandal was a “Russian disinformation campaign.”  “Pish posh, move along now, nothing to see or hear here.”  

The gravity of this realization began to dawn on me some time ago when Gail and I had dinner with some dear friends a little over a year ago.  Their daughter was in town along with her child.  The dinner was delightful and even though politically we were on opposite ends of the spectrum, things were on an even keel.  It was Christmas time and we were having fun.  Things lapsed into some type of nervous hilarity when one of us mentioned the phenomenon of Drag Queen/Baphomet Story Hour.

You could have heard a pin drop.

The young lady in question (we’ll call her “Audrey”) lived in Northern Virginia, not in some out-of-the-way burg in the Ozarks.  She was attractive,  knowledgeable, and politically liberal.  She had a six-figure income working in IT.   At the mention of  Tranny Baphomet, Audrey looked at us with mouth agape.  She literally had no idea what we were talking about.  Literally.  No idea at all.   Explaining it was an uncomfortable prospect given that her five-year-old was there but somehow, after assuring her that we weren’t demented old fogies, we let the matter drop.

The point is not whether we “red-pilled,” Audrey.  This was a lovely dinner, not a political rally.  The point is that this accomplished, knowledgeable, thirty-something professional woman literally had no idea what we were talking about.  More to the point, Tranny/Baphomet was not a “one-off”, a ridiculous hazing incident put on by some fraternity.  No, it was a cultural phenomenon that was going on in hundreds of cities across the fruited plain;  there really were grown men dressing up as hideous demons and reading fairy tales to toddlers.   

The look on her face said it all.  Such a prospect was preposterous.  It was unimaginable.  Unthinkable.  Unfathomable.  [Insert your most incredulous adjective here.]  It was all that.  And more.

And make no mistake, it is preposterous.  It’s preposterousness on stilts and steroids.  It’s beyond insane.  I don’t think that the Marquis de Sade could have come up with something along these lines (unless he was having a particularly bad LSD trip). 

Regardless, it was –and is–a reality, whether one wants to believe it or not.

It’s most ironic but the fact remains that we live in a hyper-connected world that is inundated with information 24/7 and yet vast swaths of people are ignorant about momentous events.  And I’m not saying “ignorant” in the sense that Will Rogers said it, i.e., “that we are all ignorant, just on different subjects”, but literally blind to things that actually do exist but for some reason or another are kept from us.  

Still, some people are waking up.  Please take the time to watch this short video by Andrew Klavan.  Klavan exposes the fact that Russell Brand, a famous liberal and popular podcaster, only recently came to the realization that the entire Russia Collusion narrative was nothing but a hoax.  Brand may not be to everyone’s tastes but at least he’s an honest liberal, one who’s willing to admit when he was wrong. 

And ask yourself, how many other people are like Russell Brand, who believed lies propagated by people who are obviously ill-intentioned?

Or you can be like Barbara M, the idiot in the graphic above.   At least Russell woke up and realized he was lied to;  Barbara, on the other hand, is actually lying to herself.  And proud of it.

Which would you rather be? 


  1. Ronda Wintheiser says

    I had a conversation a couple of days ago with a woman working for our county who was doing an assessment on my autistic daughter.

    It was over the phone, so we didn’t have to deal with the inanities that make up the fabric of American social life now.

    I was flabbergasted — even though I already knew it is true — to realize as we spoke that she has a nearly religious belief that covering faces keep people safe from a tiny parasite cannot be contained in the thing; that the thing only traps only the larger organisms that actually make the person wearing it ill; to realize that she is so afraid that she was committed to refusing to embrace her family members; to realize that even though she herself and all of her family had survived a bout with this illness, she insisted on them all submitting to these you-know-whats anyway because she was so afraid that her natural immunity would not be enduring…

    To realize that she has no knowledge of any of the effective treatments for this illness…

    To realize that I was speaking to someone who lives in a bubble; an alternate reality that is no reality at all and that she and many like her are the people who are making decisions that affect others…

    It really shook me up. I could speak to her affably and answer her questions, but I knew that she doesn’t know what I know and she assumes that I think the things that she thinks… And if she knew that I think the things that I think, she would likely consider me dangerous…

  2. Ultimately the question is “Of what use is a main stream media to the Right?” I ponder such questions in anticipation of the red waves that seem immanent in 2022 and 2024. The same question came up with Mitch McConnell and the filibuster. One could argue that Cocaine Mitch’s life preserver to the Dems on the debt ceiling was an effort to prevent them from doing away with the filibuster. The fact that the MSM is in the hands of the liberal Borg at this time does not mean it shall always be so. RT is certainly not Pravda.

    So what?

    The filibuster might prevent a MAGA majority from executing its will. So what good is it if it arms the enemy?

    Appreciating the temptation to fairness and equity, some of us are well beyond such niceties. When the Golden Don regains power, the effort should not be focused on establishing equity but on dominance. We have no need to be fair and balanced regarding the Left. They bear the Mark of Cain perpetually, much like they would have us bear it. Are we no better than they are? I hope not, at least not in that respect. They know a threat when they see it. Do we? Why would we dignify it with equity?

    The old regime where the remedy for bad speech was more speech ended up in liberal dominance and censorious repression. Let us not repeat the experiment. Liberalism, like Nazism and Stalinism, must be defenestrated from the Overton Window. We cannot afford tolerance of western Liberalism which has, itself, become intolerant.

    Dominance of the MSM is an excellent way of establishing a “Common Sense”. That is what the liberals have attempted and what we are confounding with alt-media. When we take power, let us gobble up the field and leave only token room as a salve to conscience, if that.

  3. Steven J. M. says

    “It’s most ironic but the fact remains that we live in a hyper-connected world that is inundated with information 24/7 and yet vast swaths of people are ignorant about momentous events.”

    For me, this information overload is the main point in all this. Whether or not it’s deliberate – which I believe it is – it ultimately has a debilitating or disorienting effect on people, and it certainly helps to keep them uninformed. In the past, there were frankly fewer things to talk about and so fewer sources to talk about them, whereas now there’s been an explosion of things, including – perhaps surprisingly – the truth.

    Never before have so many people been able to be aware of the Hunter Biden scandals of this world, and so lack of access to this info isn’t an issue. Rather, that there’s also misinfo about these scandals, plus trannies, tranny hour, disabled tranny hour, other-abled tranny hour, etc., etc., etc., sees that people have the option of choosing their own adventure and becoming oblivious to the many other rabbit holes they could have gone down.

    I see this information overload as being closely connected to the frightening and equally disruptive pace of change.

  4. British police stopped priest from giving last rites
    as stabbed Catholic politician lay dying


    ‘ A British M.P who was stabbed to death was unable to receive the last rites yesterday as police would not allow a Catholic Priest to access the crime scene. Essex police has not yet made known the reason why.

    According to an article published in the Daily Mail on Friday, as news broke that Conservative British M.P., Sir David Amess, had been stabbed, Father Jeffrey Woolnough made his way to the crime scene to administer the last rites. He found the area cordoned off by the police who did not allow him to access to the crime scene. Sir David Amess, a Catholic, eventually died of his injuries without receiving the last sacraments of the Church.

    At around 12:05 on Friday, Amess was attacked by a 25-year-old man and stabbed multiple times as he was holding a meeting with constituents in Belfairs Methodist Church in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. Attempts by paramedics to stabilize him did not succeed and at 2:39 p.m, Essex Police announced that Amess had died at the scene.

    The Daily Mail later reported that, as word of the stabbing spread, “a Roman Catholic priest, Father Jeffrey Woolnough, arrived at the police cordon stretching across tree-lined Eastwood Road North, offering to administer the last rites to the devoutly Catholic MP.” However, the Essex police didn’t allow him to approach the dying M.P, arguing that they could not let him enter an active crime scene. … ‘

    It seems preserving the scene-of-crime is more important
    than attending to the needs of the dying man…

    • It very well could have been an inappropriate dismissal of religious needs. That said, I also wanted to offer for consideration that it doesnt seem to say when the priest showed up and if it was before the scene was deemed “safe” then this is standard practice to make sure there isn’t more than 1 victim.
      I suppose the priest could have basically said that no one needed to protect him and he would give his life willingly to offer last rites to this man, but without knowing more details on both sides it is hard to say.

  5. Fr Patrick B. O’Grady says

    Good word, as usual with you, thank you!
    Since the word is central to your essay, I offer the correct spelling (which indeed makes the sense a bit clearer, since we see the root, νο-, within it: spell it homonoia (Ομόνοια)

  6. Well, I wholeheartedly agree with your thesis on the press. It’s corporate capture, just like corporate regulatory capture of Congress. Our press and politicians are all bought and paid for, and do exactly what their paymasters require. The oligarchy writes our laws and spoon feeds us propaganda.

    The two examples you give of Rather’s screw up (perhaps deliberate and knowing) with the forged letters regarding Bush’s Guard service, and Cronkite’s coverage of TET are interesting, though. They’re both untrustworthy reporters, and Cronkite was an open population control illuminatist. But whatever their deceits in the specifics of the reporting you mention here, their overall analyses were in my view spot on.

    Concerning Bush’s Guard service : Rather’s primary point was essentially correct: Bush in fact dodged the draft by joining the Guard, then blew off his Guard duty, probably to do more interesting things like drink and do cocaine. The fact that Rather used forged letters to make that point, doesn’t alter the fact that the charge itself was accurate.

    As for TET : it was in fact a major tactical victory for the United States and South Vietnam. But it was a still a strategic disaster. The U.S. strategy and understanding of the war was inherently flawed. We placed strategic restrictions on ourselves, and used specific tactics that prevented us from winning.

    We were fighting a war of attrition in the context of a civil war where the other side was never going to quit, and we did not have anywhere near the stomach to continue taking the losses that we were.

    That chicken hawk tool box Bush once said we should still be there, taking losses, carpet bombing the North and dropping napalm and agent orange on the people.

    That sort of idiotic amoral thinking is what lead to the disasters in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. There is no analysis in it of how to achieve a lasting political result through the least violent means, only an idolatrous worship of power. Their main tactic is “shock and awe” in which they “create their own conditions on the ground.” It’s the same strategy the Nazis had: kill enough people, terrify them, bribe their quisling elite, and they will submit. It never ultimately works, it inevitably leads to defeat and – what is far worse – damnation.

    One of the rules of a just war is that you have to use proportionate tactics that have a reasonable expectation of leading to imminent success in a just objective. In Vietnam, we were violently propping up a collapsing Catholic colonial regime that was alienated from the vast majority of the Buddhist peasant population. Our tactics – oppressive strategic hamlets, far too indiscriminate “count all the dead VC” technocratic guerrilla war of attrition – made the alienation and rebellion worse. There was no way that that regime was going to survive in the absence of massive continual ongoing violence, which is to say tyranny.

    We saw the conflict almost solely as one against international communism, but the Vietnamese themselves saw it very differently. That misunderstanding is what doomed us, there.

    The only way we may have won – and it was a very long shot, fraught with risk – was to have invaded the North and crushed the Viet Cong’s base of support. We still rightly had memories of Chosin Reservoir vividly in our minds, though..

    That strategy would almost certainly have brought in the Chinese to similar effect as in Korea, with the major difference that we did not have the same base of support in South Vietnam as we did in Korea, because instead of coming in as liberators from Japanese imperialism as we did in there, we instead came in and propped up the collapsing French colonial client regime. In the first case we were liberators from imperialism, in the second we were perceived as its agents, and that difference doomed us.

    Cronkite and Rather were both corrupt propagandists for oligarchy. But in both of these instances you cite here their reporting may have been dishonest and fraudulent, but their analyses were in both instances correct.

    • George Michalopulos says

      CRC, brilliant analysis of the metanarrative.

      One of my favorite Rather quotes from the Texas Air National Guard case (when he was caught) was that the report was “fake but accurate”.


    • CRC,

      I don’t think you see the forest for the trees. Of course Vietnam was winnable. Consider who was fighting whom. Winning was a question of will and Cronkite’s objective was to enfeeble the will of the American people and leadership. And he succeeded. He was in no way right to do so.

      Same with Rather and the Texas Air National Guard story. It was a hit piece based on a lie. What finally brought it to light was that the memo in question had been prepared on a computer rather than a typewriter as could be gleaned from word spacing and margins. Fraud leaves a trail, just like today.

      Never give an inch. Cronkite and Rather were both dead wrong. Had America been a better, stronger country, we would not have lost Vietnam. Indeed, we might never have needed to fight it. As to Bush, his duty was to fly jets. That’s inherently dangerous anywhere. Now, Bush was a dud so I’m not going to waste verbiage defending him, suffice to say that Rather succumbed to the same demon that later afflicted the Left regarding Trump. We should not praise them for having lost their souls.

      • Solzhenitsyn, in his magnificent Harvard address did in fact take us to task for our loss of will in Vietnam.

        The question as I see it as we were trying to contain the Soviet Union, they and their Frankfurt school allies were busily undermining our culture.

        They succeeded.

        • Actually, Nixon brought Vietnam to a draw which lasted from ’73-’75. There might still be a South Vietnam were it not for liberals like Cronkite. In 1975, Democrats cut funding for the South Vietnamese government and it all went to hell. Afghanistan reminded many of us of that travesty.

        • Archpriest Alexander F. C. Webster says

          As it happened, I attended the Harvard Commencement on June 8, 1978, as a graduating student in the Divinity School. My wife, of course, was with me in Harvard Yard (temporarily turned into the outdoor “Tercentenary Theatre” despite a pouring rain), but my special guest was then Archimandrite (and soon to be Greek Orthodox Bishop) Maximos Aghiourgoussis of blessed memory.

          That was one of the most profound public events in my life. Forever etched in my memory is the spectacle of so many Harvard alumni and other graduating students standing on their wooden folding chairs and shamelessly booing and shouting catcalls at commencement speaker, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, when he declared, as a “prophet without honor” in his new American home, that the US and the West had forgotten spiritual truth and had become weak and cowardly toward his birthplace, the Communist USSR, especially by failing to fight to victory in the Vietnam War. His invocation of the Vietnam War was the last straw for many of the 15,000 persons gathered to hear Solzhenitsyn’s first public address since his exile from the USSR four years earlier.

          Needless to say, I was cheering and applauding vigorously, but not standing on my folding chair. The latter was inspired by God Himself for the purpose of sitting by rational, civilized people.

Additionally, for now do not focus on the privacy aspects or the issues with tracing or tracking. Instead, focus like a laser on something far more critical in the background of the proposal itself.

      • I’ve given my dna in the public and private sector: I’ve done ancestry.com, as well as taken various types of swab tests that would have been sent to testing and could have feasibly gone through the government somehow. Anyone who has ever been a patient at a hospital or had some labs done for the doctor’s office can say the same thing.
        I am not saying that we shouldn’t care about these things, but I agree that total protection of dna privacy or whatever you might want to call it is probably somewhat of a moot point for most of us at this point. I think we should definitely care about what entities are allowed to DO with this information.

  9. Male Workers Allowed Into Baldwin, Unsettling Residents
    Peter Fray-Witzer|October 15, 2021

    ‘ On Oct. 7, residents of Baldwin Cottage received an email from Josh Matos, the area coordinator for Multicultural and Identity-Based Communities.

    “I am reaching out to you to give you an update on the radiator project,” Matos wrote. “Starting tomorrow (Friday, 10/8) the contractors will be entering rooms between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. to install the radiators. This will mean that they will be in your room for a period of time to complete the work.”

    I had not been contacted about any sort of radiator installation before this email, so right away the word “update” stood out to me as untrue. I grew concerned reading the second line, which informed me that I had less than 24 hours to prepare for the arrival of the installation crew, and I was further perturbed by the ambiguous “for a period of time.”

    In general, I am very averse to people entering my personal space. This anxiety was compounded by the fact that the crew would be strangers, and they were more than likely to be cisgender men. … ‘

    As Col Kurz might have said: “The horror! The horror!”

Please let me listen in to the conversation they have in the future with a plumber, HVAC guy, contractor, etc.

      That being said, I always like to play devils advocate and as a younger female with kids, if my husband weren’t home then I would try to find a way to have my mom or a friend over if someone came to do work inside my house. I was raised to be very self-protective and aware and alert to my situation. In a dorm you could just not be in your room for that time, though.

            Having boxed yourself into a corner by claiming you eschew violence and don’t condone it, you have little option but to try and change the subject when presented with the uncomfortable reality of 1/6.

  11. Only 22 countries have never been invaded by Britain

    ‘ Even though the British Empire only managed to establish its first colony in Ireland in 1556, several decades after Portugal and Spain claimed land on the African continent and the Americas, it still became synonymous with global conflict due to its network of dominions and colonies spanning the whole globe. As the first chart from our new content series InFact shows, although certainly not all of them became its subjects, Britain’s warfaring efforts only spared precious few countries in the world.

    According to the book “All the Countries We’ve Ever Invaded: And the Few We Never Got Round To”, there are only 22 countries Britain never invaded throughout history. There aren’t many gaps on the map, but some of the more notable include Sweden, Belarus and Vatican City. The biggest blank spots can be seen on the African continent, even though the Royal African Company founded in 1660 alone was responsible for forcibly removing 212,000 slaves from their homeland and shipping them to English colonies in the Americas between 1662 and 1731.

    The British Empire in its various iterations can be seen as one of the longest-lasting Western empires in the world. Its first permanent overseas colony in the Americas was established in 1607 in Jamestown, Virginia, while Hong Kong, its last big overseas territory, was handed over to China in 1997. In 1920, the empire covered roughly 13,700,000 square miles or 24 percent of the total land area of the Earth. ‘

    “A company study of 344 people gave them a 50-microgram shot six months after their second dose, and levels of virus-fighting antibodies jumped. Moderna said the booster even triggered a 42-fold rise in antibodies able to target the extra-contagious delta variant.”


    Wow! 344 people. I’m so impressed! And “the levels of virus-fighting antibodies jumped.” Who-hoo! Would these be the same antibodies they DO NOT recommend anyone – fully ‘vaccinated,’ previously recovered – or not – get tested for? Why YES! Indeed they would be.

    Trust ‘science’, but do not verify. It impedes the narrative.

    “In a new review of Moderna’s data, the FDA did not indicate Tuesday if it was leaning toward clearing the company’s booster. It said vaccines used in the U.S. still provide protection, and it raised questions about some of Moderna’s data.

    “FDA staff similarly didn’t take a stance on Pfizer’s COVID booster shots last month. That didn’t stop the agency’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee from recommending third shots.


    “For its part, J&J filed data with the FDA from a real-world study showing its vaccine remains about 80% effective against hospitalizations in the U.S.”

    This (effective against hospitalizations), as I stated earlier, has become the new narrative. Not that it protects anyone as such, not that it stops the spread (both of which were previously false advertised and still promoted by government and the media), but only that it “reduces” the number of hospitalizations.

    When one lie doesn’t work, try another. Why not when no one bothers to questions them?

    Nevertheless, read the comments below the video. It seems that nurses and pharmacists
    who administer the jags are no longer trained to aspirate before the actual injection.
    Worse. The CDC explicitly invites the injectors not to aspirate – magnifying damage!
    See: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/acip-recs/general-recs/administration.html
    “Aspiration before injection of vaccines or toxoids (i.e., pulling back on the syringe plunger after needle insertion but before injection) is not necessary because no large blood vessels are present at the recommended injection sites, and a process that includes aspiration might be more painful for infants “

  21. SARS-CoV-2 Spike Impairs DNA Damage Repair
    and Inhibits V(D)J Recombination In Vitro



    ‘ Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has led to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, severely affecting public health and the global economy. Adaptive immunity plays a crucial role in fighting against SARS-CoV-2 infection and directly influences the clinical outcomes of patients. Clinical studies have indicated that patients with severe COVID-19 exhibit delayed and weak adaptive immune responses; however, the mechanism by which SARS-CoV-2 impedes adaptive immunity remains unclear. Here, by using an in vitro cell line, we report that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein significantly inhibits DNA damage repair, which is required for effective V(D)J recombination in adaptive immunity. Mechanistically, we found that the spike protein localizes in the nucleus and inhibits DNA damage repair by impeding key DNA repair protein BRCA1 and 53BP1 recruitment to the damage site. Our findings reveal a potential molecular mechanism by which the spike protein might impede adaptive immunity and underscore the potential side effects of full-length spike-based vaccines. ‘

  24. Spontaneous Abortions and Policies on
    COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine Use During Pregnancy



    ‘ The use of mRNA vaccines in pregnancy is now generally considered safe for protection against COVID-19 in countries such as New Zealand, USA, and Australia. However, the influential CDC-sponsored article by Shimabukuro et al. (2021) used to support this idea, on closer inspection, provides little assurance, particularly for those exposed in early pregnancy. The study presents falsely reassuring statistics related to the risk of spontaneous abortion in early pregnancy, since the majority of women in the calculation were exposed to the mRNA product after the outcome period was defined (20 weeks’ gestation).

    In this article, we draw attention to these errors and recalculate the risk of this outcome based on the cohort that was exposed to the vaccine before 20 weeks’ gestation. Our re-analysis indicates a cumulative incidence of spontaneous abortion 7 to 8 times higher than the original authors’ results (p < 0.001) and the typical average for pregnancy loss during this time period. In light of these findings, key policy decisions have been made using unreliable and questionable data. We conclude that the claims made using these data on the safety of exposure of women in early pregnancy to mRNA-based vaccines to prevent COVID-19 are unwarranted and recommend that those policy decisions be revisited. …

    ‘ … The assumption that exposure in the third trimester cohort is representative of the effect of exposure throughout pregnancy is questionable and ignores past experience with drugs such as thalidomide. Evidence of safety of the product when used in the first and second trimesters cannot be established until these cohorts have been followed to at least the perinatal period or long-term safety determined for any of the babies born to mothers inoculated during pregnancy.

    Additionally, the product’s manufacturer, Pfizer, contradicts these assurances, stating: “available data on Comirnaty administered to pregnant women are insufficient to inform vaccine-associated risks in pregnancy”, and “it is not known whether Comirnaty is excreted in human milk” as “data are not available to assess the effects of Comirnaty on the breastfed infant”

    Considering the evidence presented here, we suggest the immediate withdrawal of mRNA vaccine use in pregnancy and those breastfeeding, alongside the withdrawal of mRNA vaccines to children or those of child-bearing age in the general population, until more convincing data relating to the safety and long-term impacts on fertility, pregnancy and reproduction are established in these groups. ‘

    This is one that must be blamed squarely on the various national Health Authorities.
    The negligence displayed is (I think) at least reckless, if not actually malicious…

  25. Italy: National Institutes of Health
    reduces Covid-19 death toll by 97%


    According to a report by the Italian Il Tempo, the Italian Supreme Institute of Health has drastically reduced the official number of COVID deaths in the country by more than 97% after changing the definition of death to someone who died of COVID and not [with] COVID.

    The Italian newspaper Il Tempo reports that the Institute has revised downwards the number of people who died of COVID and not [with] COVID from 130,000 to less than 4,000.

    Yes, you read that right. It turns out that 97.1% of the deaths so far attributed to COVID were not directly due to COVID 19.

    Of the 130,468 deaths recorded as official deaths since the start of the pandemic in Italy, only 3,783 are directly attributable to the virus alone.

    According to the publication, the country’s Institute of Health estimates that all the other Italians who lost their lives had one to five pre-existing diseases. Of those who died over the age of 67, 7% had more than three comorbidities and 18% had at least two.

    According to the Institute, 65.8% of Italians who died after Covid infection suffered from hypertension (high blood pressure), 23.5% had dementia, 29.3% diabetes and 24.8% Atrial Fibrillation. In addition, 17.4% had lung problems, 16.3% had cancer in the last five years and 15.7% had previous heart failure.

    The Institute’s new definition of COVID death means that COVID has killed fewer people in Italy than the average seasonal flu! If a similar change were made by other national governments, the official number of COVID deaths would be reduced by more than 90%.

    However, it seems unlikely that we will see this happen in other countries as governments have invested so much of their power in advertising the threat posed by the virus. For example, according to The Telegraph, behavioral psychologists in the United Kingdom have worked with the government to deliberately “exaggerate” the COVID threat through immoral and totalitarian propaganda methods in order to intimidate the public and lead to mass compliance.

    An investigation conducted after the first lockdown found that the average Briton believed that 100 times more people had died from COVID than the official death toll. We now understand that the official death toll “from COVID” and not “with COVID” (remember the famous attack by S. Tsiodras) is less than one tenth of what is officially reported as the total number of deaths from COVID.

    Despite the revelations that the investigation brings to light, governments continue to invest in the terrorism of citizens who are involuntarily forced to undergo a dubious medical operation for a virus that has a mortality of 0.23% according to official data of the P.Ο.Υ.

  28. Japan drops vax rollout, goes to Ivermectin,
    ENDS COVID almost overnight


    ‘ The ongoing COVID-19 nonsense here in the United States [plus the UK, Canada, Australia etc] exists solely and exclusively because our governments have failed to use the correct treatment. They used so-called “vaccines” when Japan has just proven, in less than ONE MONTH, that Ivermectin can wipe out the disease.

    Publisher’s Note:

    It has come to my attention that a small web site calling itself “LeadStories.com” claims this article is not correct because THEY could find no information on any Japan Government Health Web Site about it. Clearly, THEIR inability to find something does not make this article “not correct.” The simple truth is that in September, the head of the Tokyo Medical Association went on national television and told Doctors to start using Ivermectin. They did. Here we are, a little over a month later, and COVID is almost non-existent in Japan! We stand by our story.

    For what it’s worth, the web site “LeadStories.com” ranks 92,476 in the world. The Hal Turner Show site is much larger, ranking as 85,341 in the world. Smaller sites like LeadStories.com try to make themselves bigger, by attacking larger web sites like this one. But their shoddy journalism is evident on it’s face.

    In case you’re interested, LeadStories.com never contacted the Hal Turner Radio Show to inquire about our story before they wrote smearing us. What kind of “journalist” writes a story without contacting the actual subject of the story? A useful idiot, maybe? Someone who is only interested in touting the party line, maybe? Someone who has an agenda to push, maybe? You be the judge.

    — Hal Turner

    Sweden’s Public Health Agency on Wednesday recommended a temporary halt to the use of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine among young adults, citing concerns over rare side effects to the heart. It said the pause should initially be in force until December 1, explaining that it had received evidence of an increased risk of side effects such as inflammation of the heart muscle (myocarditis) and inflammation of the pericardium (pericarditis). {link to CBS News (Secure)]

    Finland, Denmark and Norway have also moved away from the COVID vaccines.

    Finland last Thursday joined Sweden, Denmark and Norway in recommending against use of Moderna Inc.’s Covid-19 vaccine in younger age groups, citing risks of rare cardiovascular side effects they said warranted the precautionary steps.

    Finland’s Institute for Health and Welfare said last Thursday it would pause use of the Moderna vaccine among men under the age of 30, following a similar step last Wednesday by Swedish regulators. Denmark last Wednesday said it wouldn’t offer the Moderna vaccine to under-18s as a precautionary measure.

    Norway on Wednesday advised that all under-18s shouldn’t be given the Moderna vaccine, even if they had already received one dose, and recommended that men under 30 consider getting the vaccine developed by Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech instead. Norwegian officials cited U.S., Canadian and Nordic data, saying the absolute risks remain low and calling the advice “a precautionary measure.”

    The European Medicines Agency said Thursday that new preliminary data from the Nordic countries supports a warning the agency adopted in July that inflammatory heart conditions called myocarditis and pericarditis can occur in very rare cases following vaccination with Covid-19 shots made by Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech.

    By far, however, the absolute superstar among foreign nations dealing with COVID is Japan. Japan has PULLED the vaccines and substituted Ivermectin – and in one month, wiped COVID out in that country!

    Any questions?

    Just so you understand the timeline.

    By September deaths from the COVID-19 Vaccine jabs were being investigated.

    At roughly that time, the vials were under scrutiny and metal “magnetic” material was found in them.

    Very shortly thereafter, the Japanese minister of health announced doctors could prescribe Ivermectin.

    A month later, the Western press is shocked that COVID has all but disappeared from the island.

    Get it?


    This is what it looks like in a country that still has rule of law. The governemnt responds to reports of death and contaminated vaxes, moves to real treatment, people get better, and the virus disappears.

    Now compare that to what is happening in the United States and in Australia and New Zealand. All three countries are in dismal failure in their handling of COVID-19, and that failure has resulted in staggering loss of freedom and destruction of commerce.

    This is the biggest news story right now.

    Japan has ended COVID. It did it after it stopped the vax rollout and went to Ivermectin.

    Period. Hard stop.

    Hal Turner Editorial Opinion

    If your government really wanted to end COVID, if that was its true goal, it would do what Japan did.

    You can use Japan as a case study any time someone starts yammering some crap about how the vax is about helping you help yourself from getting others sick with what they’ve been vaxed against.

    You use it as a case study when they try to make some lame argument about how the government is really really really trying its best to end COVID and it is the MAGA crowd that is causing the variants and keeping the virus around.

    Japan stopped vaxing. Japan went to IVM. Japan is COVID-free. It did it in less than a month!

    So if your government won’t do what Japan did, now that JAPAN HAS BEAT COVID, what does it say about your government?

    It says the conspiracy theorists were right! They were right. It is a damning conviction of the narrative that the government is somehow a benevolent force against you getting viruses.

    No, because we now have historic precedent of a government doing the right thing and getting the WIN.

    If your government won’t do it, it is because the vax is about something other than the public good.

    Hmmmm. What could it be about? How about totalitarian control!

    Japan got started vaxing later, and quit earlier than Massachusetts. Massachusetts is still fighting COVID with a couple thousand breakthrough cases per week. Japan is done. ‘

    • The best source for pro-Ivermectin information is the website of the FLCCC – The Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance. The FLCCC has been trying to broaden the use of Ivermectin (along with other drugs) as both a prophylactic and as a therapeutic drug. If anyone in the medical community knows about Ivermectin and advocates for its use in preventing and treating Covid patients, it the the FLCCC.

      I just checked the FLCCC’s website. I did not find anything the reports about Japan switching to Ivermectin and away from vaccines. If such a story were true, I would expect to see it on the FLCCC’s website. I would also expect to see it on the Bret Weinstein-Heather Heying Dark Horse podcast (on Odysee and on Youtube). Both of them have had representatives of the FLCCC (Dr. Pierre Kory) on their podcast and both of them apparently use Ivermectin and have not taken the injection.

      I have the impression that support for the use of Ivermectin to treat Covid patients has been suppressed by the media, which is a major reason why Weinstein and Heying have moved their podcast to Odysee.com. I do not trust Snopes or Wikipedia on this issue, but I do trust FLCCC because it supports and promotes the use of Ivermectin. If someone can find a reference to the Japan situation on FLCCC, please post the link. If FLCCC is not reporting on the story, then I think there may not be anything to it.


      • Hal Turner states (above) that:
        ” The simple truth is that in September, the head of the Tokyo Medical Association went on national television and told Doctors to start using Ivermectin. They did. Here we are, a little over a month later, and COVID is almost non-existent in Japan! We stand by our story.”

        What he is saying is not that Japan as a monolithic corporate entity stopped vaccinating and started using Ivermectin but that Japanese doctors (in response to an appeal from the head of the Tokyo Medical Association) individually stopped vaccinating and started using Ivermectin; and that cases dropped dramatically as a result.

        This being the result of actions (plural) by unofficial Japan, as opposed to action (singular) by Official Japan, suggests it would be very easy to miss the success of Ivermectin treatment – especially if no one was looking for it; concerning which, see:

        Japan’s success in smashing its latest wave of COVID has ‘puzzled’ health experts

        ‘ Just weeks ago, Japan was battling a surge in COVID-19 infections that was pushing its hospital system to the brink.

        Key points:

        Japan has recorded more than 1.7 million cases of COVID-19 and more than 18,000 deaths
        Infections have sharply declined thanks to a high rate of vaccine uptake and compliance with mask wearing
        There are fears the relaxation of restrictions on hospitality venues could lead to another spike in cases

        Daily cases peaked at more than 26,000 in late August following the Tokyo Olympics, prompting the government to impose restrictions to reduce transmission.

        But now the country is recording only about 300 cases a day.

        On October 1, the country dropped its state of emergency for the first time in six months and the authorities are easing restrictions, such as the ban on selling alcohol in Tokyo’s restaurants and bars.

        It’s a remarkable turnaround that has left public health experts “puzzled”, with more than one factor likely responsible. ‘

        The one factor in such a turnaround that “public health experts” can nowadays be relied upon to ignore is the use of Ivermectin, particularly if it has not been mandated by some government flunkey or other. If they are not looking for it, they will assuredly not find it.

        As for the FLCCC, I too trust them. However, I also recognise that they do not have all the information that is out there, that they are not a news organisation and that to protect their academic credibility they will not always be first to report.

        But let’s not fixate upon Japan. Let’s look to India,
        specifically to Uttar Pradesh – for which, see:

  29. They just admitted what the passport system is for

    ‘ You’ve probably seen a handful of people on social media say that vaccine passport systems make them “feel safe.” You know and I know that these systems have nothing to do with health or safety.
    Well, some authorities in Canada just admitted what you and I knew: the aim is to punish the unvaccinated.

    The British Columbia Parks and Recreation department says: “Remember, the purpose of the PoV card is to incentivize residents to be vaccinated, not to control the spread of the virus.”

    Then further: “This is an important shift to keep aware of for your decision-making; the province has shifted from actions that provide a COVID-safe environment to actions that provide discretionary services to the vaccinated.”

    Patricia Daly, Chief Medical Health Officer for Vancouver Coastal Health, added:
    “The vaccine passport requires people to be vaccinated to do certain discretionary activities such as go to restaurants, movies, gyms, not because these places are high risk. We are not actually seeing covid transmission in these settings.

    It really is to create an incentive to improve our vaccination coverage…. The vaccine passport is for non-essential opportunities, and it’s really to create an incentive to get higher vaccination rates.”
    So even though cities and countries with these systems in place are doing no better than countries that don’t, that isn’t the point.

    The point, as I’ve said all along, is to punish those who decline the vaccines. ‘

    Will the unvaccinated pay less provincial taxes for their reduced services?

  30. Scottish Lockdowns Vs. Swedish Freedom — Who Won?

    Story at-a-glance

    In a short documentary, CAN Films explored pandemic outcomes in Scotland, which began requiring vaccine passports October 1, 2021, with those of Sweden, which rejected forced lockdowns in favor of voluntary measures
    With half the population of Sweden, Scotland scored a higher excess death rate for 2020, with much more restrictive pandemic responses
    Sweden fared better than Scotland on many pandemic outcome measures, including excess deaths, weight gain, alcohol-related deaths, inflation and economic viability
    Sweden did not mandate face masks at any point during the pandemic and, in July 2021, also dropped their “vague recommendation” to wear one at all
    Scotland implemented a vaccine passport requirement October 1, 2021; backlash from hospitality and other groups has ensued

    Whether or not lockdowns and other restrictive measures worked to reduce COVID-19 deaths is a topic of great debate, one that was recently explored by CAN Films. In a short documentary, they explore pandemic outcomes in Scotland, which began requiring vaccine passports October 1, 2021, with those of Sweden, which rejected forced lockdowns in favor of voluntary measures.

    The numbers, they said, speak for themselves. “With half the population of Sweden, Scotland scored a higher excess death rate for 2020, having imposed all the draconian rules we’d had in England and even more. Now, they were the first in the U.K. to introduce vaccine passports.”1
    Differences Between Scotland and Sweden’s Pandemic Responses

    CAN Films spoke with several people in Scotland, who believed their government’s approach to the pandemic was sound — although they weren’t aware of how Sweden had handled things, or the outcomes.

    By March 2020, Scotland implemented strict lockdowns and closed schools, restaurants, gyms and other social venues, with people threatened with police fines if they went outside other than to buy food, exercise (once daily) or go to work if they couldn’t work from home.2

    March 23, 2021, Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon said, “Let me blunt. The stringent restrictions on our normal day-to-day lives that I’m about to set out are difficult and they are unprecedented. They amount effectively to what has been described as a lockdown.”3

    Sweden handled the pandemic differently than most of the globe and has been chided for its looser restrictions and lack of severe lockdowns. In October 2020, TIME called the Swedish COVID-19 response a “disaster,”4 but data showed that the death rate in Sweden in 2020 was right in line with other years — nothing out of the ordinary.5

    While most other European countries instituted lockdowns at the beginning of the pandemic, Sweden did not, and maintained few social distancing requirements through most of 2020. Later in the year, and in 2021, they did implement some restrictions on attendance numbers at public gatherings and events, however. Sweden described their pandemic response this way:6

    “Sweden’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been about taking the right measures at the right time, because different measures are effective at different points in time. The country’s response has been partly based on voluntary action.

    For example, rather than enforce a nationwide lockdown, the authorities have given recommendations: to stay home if you’ve got symptoms, to keep a distance to others, to avoid public transport if possible, etc.

    … Swedish preschools and schools for 6- to 16-year-olds have stayed open during the pandemic, with a few exceptions. The Public Health Agency of Sweden made the assessment that closing all schools in Sweden would not be a meaningful measure, based on an analysis of the situation in Sweden and possible consequences for the entire society.”

    Sweden: Fewer Excess Deaths With No Lockdowns

    Below you can see a side-by-side comparison of the two countries’ pandemic response results, based on data compiled by CAN Films:7
    Scotland Sweden
    Population 5.5 million 10.2 million
    Excess deaths 2020 15% 7.5%
    Lockdowns 3 0
    Vaccine passports Yes Vaccination voluntary
    School closure days 64 0
    Weight gain due to boredom 54% 0%
    Rise in alcohol-related deaths 17% 3%
    Inflation rate 3.2% 1.5%
    Depression increase 24% 6%
    Economy shrinkage 10% 2.8%
    Debt increase 28% 13%

    [Apologies if the table doesn’t display properly]

    Sweden has stood by their handling of the pandemic, despite heavy criticism. The country’s state epidemiologist, Dr. Anders Tegnell, has been vocal about his anti-lockdown approach since early on in the pandemic, leading him to be described as Sweden’s “anti-lockdown architect.”8

    In the beginning, Tegnell described the rest of the world’s lockdowns as “madness,” considering the steep side effects they ultimately cause. Stanford’s Nobel-laureate Michael Levitt, Ph.D., who is among those in support of Sweden’s lighter restrictions, suggested that not only did lockdowns not save lives but instead cost lives due to social damage, domestic abuse, divorces, alcoholism and other health conditions that were not treated.9 Bloomberg reported:10

    “‘It was as if the world had gone mad, and everything we had discussed was forgotten,’ Tegnell said in a podcast with Swedish Radio … ‘The cases became too many and the political pressure got too strong. And then Sweden stood there rather alone.'”

    Tegnell stated that shutting down schools was also unnecessary during the pandemic, and scientists from the Institut Pasteur in France indeed found that there was no significant transmission of COVID-19 in primary schools, either among the students or from students to teachers.11

    “The study also confirmed that younger children infected by the novel coronavirus generally do not develop symptoms or present with minor symptoms that may result in a failure to diagnose the virus,” study author Bruno Hoen added.12

    Meanwhile, while Sweden has encouraged its citizens to engage in social distancing, mask usage is another story, and Tegnell has stated that there’s little evidence for wearing face masks.13 The country did not mandate face masks at any point during the pandemic and, in July 2021, also dropped their “vague recommendation” to wear one at all.14

    In a September 2021 interview with U.K. website Unherd, Tegnell continued to support Sweden’s less restrictive pandemic response, stating that they “did not fare very badly at all” considering they had fewer excess deaths in 2020 than some European countries that imposed lockdowns.15 Regarding children, he said they “have definitely been affected by the pandemic, but to a lot lesser degree than children would have been if we had closed the schools.”16

    Herd Immunity ‘Won’t Cut It’
    The official narrative has led many people to believe that herd immunity is unattainable naturally and, without an injection, “won’t cut it.” CAN Films spoke with one Scottish woman who believed just that, because it’s what she had been told.

    Herd immunity, which occurs when enough people acquire immunity to an infectious disease such that it can no longer spread widely in the community, is calculated using reproductive number, or R-naught (R0), which is the estimated number of new infections that may occur from one infected person.17

    R0 of below 1 (with R1 meaning that one person who’s infected is expected to infect one other person) indicates that cases are declining while R0 above 1 suggests cases are on the rise. It’s far from an exact science, however, as a person’s susceptibility to infection varies depending on many factors, including their health, age and contacts within a community.

    The initial R0 calculations for COVID-19’s HIT were based on assumptions that everyone has the same susceptibility and would be mixing randomly with others in the community. But a study published in Nature Reviews Immunology suggested that the herd immunity threshold for COVID-19 may need to be adjusted because children are less susceptible to the disease.18

    Further, Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of the mRNA and DNA vaccine core platform technology,19 described the notion that the only way to reach herd immunity against COVID-19 is through universal vaccination as a myth.20 “Herd immunity is most often reached through natural infection … Vaccines will not get us to herd immunity,” Malone said.21

    Herd Mentality Vs. Herd Immunity

    What’s more, in a shocking reversal that’s akin to redefining reality, the World Health Organization even changed their definition of herd immunity. In June 2020, WHO’s definition of herd immunity, posted on one of their COVID-19 Q&A pages, was in line with the widely accepted concept that has been the standard for infectious diseases for decades. Here’s what it originally said, courtesy of the Internet Archive’s Wayback machine:22

    “Herd immunity is the indirect protection from an infectious disease that happens when a population is immune either through vaccination or immunity developed through previous infection.”

    In October 2020, however, WHO’s updated definition of herd immunity described it as “a concept used for vaccination.”23 This perversion of science implies that the only way to achieve herd immunity is via vaccination, which is blatantly untrue:24

    “‘Herd immunity’, also known as ‘population immunity’, is a concept used for vaccination, in which a population can be protected from a certain virus if a threshold of vaccination is reached. Herd immunity is achieved by protecting people from a virus, not by exposing them to it.

    Vaccines train our immune systems to create proteins that fight disease, known as ‘antibodies’, just as would happen when we are exposed to a disease but — crucially — vaccines work without making us sick. Vaccinated people are protected from getting the disease in question and passing it on, breaking any chains of transmission.”

    Meanwhile, CAN Films pointed out the irony of seeking herd immunity from an experimental jab — that still allows for viral transmission — while ignoring the risks of the herd mentality that’s taken over much of the globe:25

    “Herd immunity. What about herd mentality? I mean, everyone follow the official narrative no matter what? State lockdown no matter what your health condition or age is? Behave as if you’re contagious no matter whether you have symptoms or not? Get an experimental jab even if the risk-to-benefit ratio plays against you …? If this one-size-fits-all approach was not the dawn of totalitarianism, then people were definitely being treated as cattle.”

    Scotland’s Vaccine Passport ‘Disaster’

    Scotland’s vaccine passport scheme took effect October 1, 2021, but the government allowed a 17-day “grace period” to allow venues to get their procedures up and running. Strong backlash has ensued, with various groups referring to the passports as “discriminatory” and “shambolic, last-minute kneejerk decision-making.”26

    Now that the measure has been enacted, however, anyone age 18 years and over must show proof of COVID-19 injections in order to enter:27

    Adult entertainment venues
    Unseated indoor events with more than 500 people
    Unseated outdoor events with more than 4,000 people
    Any event with more than 10,000 people in attendance

    Already, during the first weekend of enforcement, the Scottish Hospitality Group, which opposes the passports, described the scheme as an “unmitigated disaster,” with venues having to turn away people at the door and staff suffering abuses as a result.

    Spokesperson Stephen Montgomery told BBC News, “The experience of this weekend shows that the result has been intolerable levels of abuse of our staff, and the creation of an atmosphere that will totally undermine anyone’s enjoyment of our night-time venues.”28

    And to what end? To date, data show that more restrictive measures haven’t reduced excess COVID-19 deaths. And getting COVID-19 injections isn’t effective for stopping spread since even those who have received two shots can still transmit the virus.29 What vaccine passports will do is make this type of infringement on personal freedom “normal,” paving the way for ever greater restrictions.

    • Will Orthodox bishops rally?

      Answer: No

    • “Will Orthodox bishops rally?”

      Orthodox bishops should not take stand on divisive political issues. For two reasons, religious and practical.

      1. Their task is to preach Kingdom of God that is not of this world.

      2. The faithful have diverse political views if any, and many would be alienated and scandalized.

      • George Michalopulos says

        Martin, I actually agree with you. Unfortunately, when it comes to “not taking political stands”, they do. And it always the most divisive ones. And almost always on the Left.

        All those of us who are not on the Left ask for is a little consistency. That’s all.

        But as the Right is now learning about the Left, it was always “dialogue and tolerance” for thee but not for me.

        • “Unfortunately, when it comes to “not taking political stands”, they do. And it always the most divisive ones. And almost always on the Left.”

          If you have in mind those three “Hard Left” issues like freeing students from the huge debt, health care for all and redistribution of concentrated wealth, maybe.

          BTW, what is the stand of church going Orthodox on those issues? Closer to the left Left or to the Right?

          And last but not the least, what is the stand of the Orthodox outside of America? Where I live, they (with rare eccentric exceptions) support free education, free medical and some degree of wealth distribution. Bishops, clergy, laymen alike.

          • The issues you cite, Martin, are precisely what George had in mind when he wrote…

            Unfortunately, when it comes to “not taking political stands”, they do.

            How, then, can you say with a straight face…

            Orthodox bishops should not take stand on divisive political issues. For two reasons, religious and practical.

            1. Their task is to preach Kingdom of God that is not of this world.

            2. The faithful have diverse political views if any, and many would be alienated and scandalized.

            Every issue you cited (“free education, free medical and some degree of wealth distribution”) and many more that you did not cite are political issues that are “of this world” – unless, that is, you and these faithful are willing to offer to distribute your own wealth directly out of your own pockets, provide someone you know with free education, free medical care…

            If, however, you and these other faithful believe that the government should provide these things (and I’m not impugning these beliefs as such), then you/they have already entered the realm of politics. Stop pretending otherwise.

            What deeply troubles many of us, Martin, is that when issues like abortion, homosexuality,
            ‘gay marriage,’ etc. are on the political table we hear rhetoric, but no call to political action because these issues are somehow deemed politically “divisive” (and this in the Church!). Yet on the other issues you mentioned which are equally political in nature (if we expect the government to act on them), we hear not a hint of worry over the politization of the Church or concern for the many faithful who are “alienated and scandalized” by those who casually disregard real, actual governmental restraint of abortion, homosexuality, ‘gay marriage,’ etc. as somehow “too political.”

            You/they can’t have it both ways. Stop pretending one side is ‘political’ while the other is not.

            • Brian “If, however, you and these other faithful believe that the government should provide these things (and I’m not impugning these beliefs as such), then you/they have already entered the realm of politics. Stop pretending otherwise.”

              I do not pretend. I DO include them in the realm of politics. What I am saying is that political views left, right, center, are permitted for the Orthodox but should not divide them.

              “we hear not a hint of worry over the politization of the Church or concern for the many faithful who are “alienated and scandalized” by those who casually disregard real, actual governmental restraint of abortion, homosexuality, ‘gay marriage,’ etc. as somehow “too political.”

              You misunderstand me. I am quite traditional on the issues of “abortion, homosexuality, ‘gay marriage”! And I think that they are not purely political and intrude on the matters of faith and Christian morality. That is why I want to keep the issues of economic justice separate from the issues of moral customs.
              To conflate them is used to obfuscate both.

      • Should the bishops rally to Tradition,
        as opposed to Woke agendas, they will assuredly be attacked as being political;
        for Tradition has been relentlessly politicised by the Left for decades.

      • “1. Their task is to preach Kingdom of God that is not of this world.”

        The Kingdom of Heaven is theosis, a spiritual state. Nonetheless, we are not Gnostics who condemn the material universe. The Church has always been hip deep in politics since before the time of Constantine. Someone’s morality will prevail. Let it be ours.

        “2. The faithful have diverse political views if any, and many would be alienated and scandalized.”

        The Church should not represent the moral depravity of the “faithful”. The Church should lead the “faithful” to higher moral ground. Christ did not come to bring peace, but a sword. If the laity are alienated from traditional morality then they are already alienated from God and only pretending to belong to His flock.

        Alas, Vigano is an unwitting minion of the evil one who has consumed the RCC. Though his call may sound valiant, he is preaching dragon slaying from inside the belly of the beast.

        • …”he is preaching dragon slaying from
          inside the belly of the beast.”

          Perhaps one day he may cut his way out…

      • Archpriest Alexander F. C. Webster says

        If by “divisive political issues” you mean moral issues that have been politicized by one group or another, then I must vehemently disagree. Abortion, for example, is an immoral, evil abomination. It does not matter which political party or politicians–or who among the “faithful,” as you put it, “would be scandalized.” Orthodox bishops, as well as other clergy and the laity, are bound by a properly formed conscience and their ordinations or lay calling to ministry to oppose such abominations personally, publicly, and prophetically, any offense taken by the other “faithful” or any political party notwithstanding.

        • Father Alexander, why is it that I never see any ROCOR bishops attending Pro-Life marches then? I see plenty of OCA bishops there, but none from ROCOR.

        • Fr. Webster: “If by “divisive political issues” you mean moral issues that have been politicized by one group or another, then I must vehemently disagree.”

          No, I did not mean that. I specified three examples – free education, free medical care, reducing concentration of wealth. This is what the true “Left” for me means.

          ” The Church has always been hip deep in politics since before the time of Constantine.”

          Before the Constantine? Like in time of Caligula and Elagabalus? Or in a country where Orthodox Christians are a small minority?

          “Someone’s morality will prevail”
          We do not live in time of Theodosius, I am personally more interested in sticking to the Truth than my morality being imposed on others, especially when my morality is not always exemplary 😉

          • Archpriest Alexander F. C. Webster says

            RE: ” The Church has always been hip deep in politics since before the time of Constantine.”
            RE: “Someone’s morality will prevail”

            Martin, I have no idea to whom you are responding in those comments, since I did not write them in my reply to your original post.

            However, Brian, Brendan, Misha, and yours truly have already rebutted your primary contention here, which is the familiar leftist narrowing of “political” to traditional moral positions on abortion, human sexuality, and marriage that the Orthodox Church has advanced for two millennia, while deeming morally self-evident a set of so-called material “rights” that socialists have advanced for only a mere century or so.

            • Fr.Webster “Martin, I have no idea to whom you are responding in those comments, since I did not write them in my reply to your original post.”
              I intended to prepend “Misha” to the last two quotes, I noticed the omission too late, sorry.

              “However, Brian, Brendan, Misha, and yours truly have already rebutted your primary contention here, which is the familiar leftist narrowing of “political” to traditional moral positions on abortion, human sexuality, and marriage”

              Abortion, sexuality and marriage is another set of issues. I wish to treat them separately, if I may.

              “deeming morally self-evident a set of so-called material “rights” that socialists have advanced for only a mere century or so.”

              Well, at least from the time of Dickens 😉 I think it it is permitted for the Orthodox to share _some_ views with socialists. Same way as to it is permitted to promote capitalism or even feudalism.

              BTW, my impression is that most of the Orthodox outside of USA have more sympathy to the first. Still I rejoice when I see people of differing political views praying together.

              BTW 2, I do not frame all those issue as matter of “rights”. (See the excellent and profound book by Mary Glendon – Rights Talk: The Impoverishment of Political Discourse.)

  31. Swedish study (Stockholm University – a known bastion of “misinformation”) suggests possible serious dangers of the COVID-19 “vaccines. Mind you, it does not confirm, but it does strongly suggest. Two doctors explain the findings:



    Yeah… the “science” demonstrates it’s safe and effective…sure. They have no idea what they are doing. They merely are learning as they experiment…on us.

  32. FDA Says It Needs Until Year 2076 To Reveal
    Data Pertaining To Pfizer Vaccine Approval


    ‘ The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requested Monday for the courts to give them until 2076 to review and fully release the documents pertaining to the approval of the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. … ‘

    In the meantime, we must just trust in them…




    [Video – 01:17:19]

    ‘ In an historic interview for The HighWire, host Del Bigtree sits down with Vaccinologist, Geert Vanden Bossche, Ph.D., D.V.M., to hear Geert’s dire warning about mass Covid vaccination of children, and the catastrophe which may follow. ‘

    If Geert is right, we’re in deep doo-doo…

  34. Document- “rocket” of [Greek Navy] “sinks” the government:
    “Vaccinated people get sick more than Covid-19”!


    ‘ With a document whose content resembles the results of an Exocet anti-ship missile launch in the “wall of immunity” policy that the government would allegedly set up with mass vaccinations (a myth that, of course, was adopted by most European governments with well-known tragic results), was drafted by the General Staff of the Navy and is published today by pronews.gr.

    The contents of the document not only “evaporate” the government’s claim that the vaccinated are sick at a lower rate than the unvaccinated and even in the percentages supported by the government (ie that the percentages of the sick are of the order of 87% for the unvaccinated and only 13% are vaccinated), but it is documented that those who are vaccinated get sick at a higher rate than those who are not vaccinated!

    The document of the General Staff of the Navy for the crews of the warships proves for the first time and officially with a stamp of state service, that the vaccinated people with Covid-19 are more than the unvaccinated ones!

    Note that for unvaccinated strains, a one-week quarantine also applies, in addition to the PCR and rapid tests they perform inside the port.

    Now, after these results show that the vaccinated are more infected than the unvaccinated, now the vaccinated will be quarantined, one week before the business or training voyages, as mentioned in the document!

    It should be noted that unvaccinated and vaccinated strains do not live together before voyages and therefore no one can claim that they transmit to each other.

    It is clear that vaccinated people are infected by their social environment and it is the first occupational group for which there is an official admission by a state authority that they get sick more than the unvaccinated and it is now certain that all vaccinated people are infected to a similar extent and in combination with the lack protection measures (it was the “cheese” to be vaccinated) transmit to the unvaccinated!

    According to the results of the investigation of the Ministry of Defense as mentioned in the document: ” From the statistics of the last thirty (30) days, there is a significant increase in the confirmed cases of vaccinated personnel. Specifically for the above period (s.s .: the document was drafted in November), in a total of 89 confirmed cases, 45 concerned vaccinated strains at a rate of 50.56% against 44 unvaccinated strains, a rate of 49.44% “!

    Here is the relevant excerpt of the document which is available to pronews.gr, but is not published as is for national security reasons (communication codes, cryptographic codes, etc.).

    What the above means: That vaccination is not just a panacea and a solution, but creates a false picture of safety, without counting confirmed deaths, side effects, etc.

    As a result, the vaccinated are mobile transmission bombs of Covid-19, something that happens with the third dose, as evidenced by the geometric increase of the infected who make the third dose.

    That at least the specific vaccines and basically Pfizer / BioNTech simply “train” the virus how to mutate to “escape” from them, without re-calculating the side effects etc etc.

    That the government is lying about the whole issue. But this is not news … ‘

  35. What should concern us is the following:

    It is clear that we have a force, a party, that has no qualms about using totalitarian methods to maintain, preserve, protect and expand its rule. We have the January 6th political prisoners. We have the FBI targeting parents. We have them raiding the offices of the press and the homes of dissenters. We have lockdowns and mask mandates combined now with vaccine mandates. We also have an old media that is supporting and cheering this travesty on – essentially a state controlled media (controlled by ideological alliance). We have the example of Australia and the European lockdowns and mandates.

    There is a new media which is resisting this in varying degrees: Foxnews, OANN, Skynews, Newsmax, NY Post, etc. And so we are treated to a realtime commentary on the imposition of the police state by those apparently opposed to it. Moreover, we have the prospect of electoral relief as dangled out by the Virginia governor’s race, though Youngkin is actually a moderate in MAGA fleece.

    But do we have a Right committed to imposing our policies by force?

    History is not kind to republicans/liberals at odds with totalitarians. Russia remained Christian so long as it remained an autocracy. When the tsar abdicated and the Provisional Government took over, it lasted only months against the Bolsheviks.

    Hitler was a totalitarian (the state was god for him, and he was the state incarnate) and the only thing strong enough to defeat him was a rival totalitarian, Stalin. The democracies f’d around in North Africa and Sicily waiting for the Wehrmacht to spend itself against the Soviets. By January 1943, the Soviet Union had regained all its lost ground and was advancing into newly conquered territory against the Germans. This was a year and a half before Normandy.

    What I’m saying is that you need a hard right to actually defeat the left here in America. Not conservative liberals, not even MAGA. The devotion to republican ideals is charming and quaint but ineffective and impotent. Theoretically, Trump has the right policies, as does the MAGA movement. But it lacks, at present, the right tone. It aims to compete and defeat, whereas it needs to crush and abolish. They are not the same thing.

    You are fighting the intelligence services of your own country. If you play by the Marquis of Queensbury rules, you will lose. They can game the game. It is not a game, or a competition, or a campaign or a race or a contest. It is a war. War is not about who’s right but who’s left. And when you fight a war, the one and only commandment that supersedes and displaces all lesser commandments is to win. And winning in this case means to destroy the enemy’s ability to mount any ideological or electoral challenge to your rule.

    You cannot defeat the likes of John Brennan, James Comey, Andy McCabe, Barack Obama, Susan Rice, etc., with anything less. 1776 will not cut it. If your aim is to restore the republic, you will only lose it again. It’s over. That can’t be the game anymore.

    It takes an authoritarian/autocracy to defeat a totalitarian.

    • Misha “Russia remained Christian so long as it remained an autocracy. When the tsar abdicated and the Provisional Government took over, it lasted only months against the Bolsheviks. ”
      But this abdication was not the cause, but the result. In February 1917, the Tsar was abandoned by his people and even by a part of the Church. Even if he wanted to crack down, he was powerless. So he submitted to his predicament and bore his passion meekly.

  37. Geert Vanden Bossche Was Right, The World’s
    Most Vaccinated Country Cancels Christmas Due to Massive Rise in COVID-19 Infections


    ‘ The most vaccinated population in the world exists on Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory located at the southern end of Spain. The average number of vaccinations is 2.79 per person for all residents.

    However, even with that level of vaccination density, or perhaps –more likely– because of that level of vaccination density, the narrow peninsula is experiencing a massive rise in COVID-19 infections. As a result, the Gibraltar government announced today that all Christmas assemblies must be stopped, and citizens must re-evaluate their intent to gather in celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

    UK News – […] In a statement released by the Gibraltar government, a spokesperson said: “Given the exponential rise in the number of cases, the Government, for example, intends to cancel a number of its own functions including official Christmas parties, official receptions and similar gatherings.

    “The public, at this stage, are ultimately called upon to exercise their own judgement in this respect bearing in mind the current advice given.

    “This consideration should include the number of persons, the setting whether indoor or outdoor, the degree of ventilation if indoor and whether those attending are vaccinated, elderly or vulnerable. “In the same way, as has happened in the past, this advice may change going forward. (link)

    This outcome in Gibraltar reminds me of the prior warning from Geert Vanden Bossche, a scientist and expert vaccine developer (Belgium) in September.

    When Vanden Bossche initially reviewed the high vaccination rates in Israel, Vanden Bossche warned the absence of a natural immunity population to fight the virus would lead to an uncontrollable spread of the virus in the vaccinated community. The higher the vaccination rates, the more serious the spread of the virus amid the population that only carries the immune system protection provided by the vaccine.

    I encapsulated his outline here: “The widespread vaccination rate is creating pressure on the virus to mutate into variants with higher levels of contagion. The unvaccinated group has been keeping the pressure down by defeating the virus and carrying natural immunity. However, as the unvaccinated population is increasingly made smaller, the pressure on the virus to mutate increases. Subsequently, these mutations stay at higher or more effective levels of infection.” ‘

    All it needs is Antibody Dependent Enhacement to set in,
    and Spain should get Gibraltar back without a fight;
    unless the Moors return and get there first…

  39. Bill Gates’ “Skin List” – How the Bill & Melinda Gates
    Foundation [paid] $ 320,000,000 to the international media


    ‘ According to the international journal MintPressNews, the owner of Microsoft Bill Gates has paid, through his foundation, 319 million dollars to American and international media that pave the way for him by promoting topics of interest to him.

    The agency captured the information by looking at about 30,000 donations made by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and appearing in its database. MintPressNews.com went so far as to reveal the means that benefited from this massive funding.

    Among the media mentioned are: CNN, NBC, PBS and The Atlantic for the United States. In the rest of the world, other media were wet. These include: El Pais (Spain), The BBC, The Guardian, The Financial Times and The Daily Telegraph (UK), Der Spiegel (Germany), Al-Jazeera (Qatar) and Le Monde (France).

    The amounts paid to these media outlets have been disclosed. CNN received $ 3,600,000 from the American billionaire. El Pais received $ 3,968,184. Le Monde would have received $ 4,014,512, the BBC received $ 3,668,657 and Der Spiegel received $ 5,437,294. The Guardian seems to have won the jackpot: $ 12,951,391. And the list is long.

    According to the source, this money is used to cover issues that are dear to Bill Gates.

    After providing highly detailed information about Gates’ funding to the media, the news site MintPressNews explains how this media hostage-taking kills journalism, imposing a single line in favor of the all-powerful American billionaire.

    Through this system, which is clearly related to corruption, the image of Bill Gates is constantly revived by the international media, which presents him as the real savior of the planet. His conflicts of interest and the serious scandals in which he is involved are deliberately ignored and those who dare to speak risk paying dearly.

  40. ‘Straight’ from the horse’s mouth:
    Fauci Finally Admits Vaccines Don’t Protect Against Serious Covid or Death

    ‘ In a November 12 podcast session with the New York Times, Fauci was forced to admit the fact that the vaccines do not reliably protect their recipients from serious Covid or death.

    Called upon to explain the data coming from Israel – a country with one of the highest vaccination rates in the world – Fauci said the following:

    “They are seeing a waning of immunity not only against infection but against hospitalization and to some extent death, which is starting to now involve all age groups. It isn’t just the elderly” [emphasis added]. …

    This is what data from Israel and other highly vaccinated countries has indicated for some time now. In the United Kingdom, for example, between February and September of this year, 72 percent of all Covid-related deaths were among the vaccinated. In Scotland the situation was even worse: 80 percent of Covid deaths occurred among those who had been injected with the vaccines. … ‘

    When you add the ‘vaccine’ deaths and adverse events to this,
    ‘vaccination’ begins to seem a somewhat less attractive option.

    Perhaps there is something to be said for horse medicine (IVM) after all…

  41. Abstract 10712: Mrna COVID Vaccines Dramatically Increase
    Endothelial Inflammatory Markers and ACS Risk
    as Measured by the PULS Cardiac Test: a Warning



    ‘ Our group has been using the PLUS Cardiac Test (GD Biosciences, Inc, Irvine, CA) a clinically validated measurement of multiple protein biomarkers which generates a score predicting the 5 yr risk (percentage chance) of a new Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). The score is based on changes from the norm of multiple protein biomarkers including IL-16, a proinflammatory cytokine, soluble Fas, an inducer of apoptosis, and Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF)which serves as a marker for chemotaxis of T-cells into epithelium and cardiac tissue, among other markers. Elevation above the norm increases the PULS score, while decreases below the norm lowers the PULS score.The score has been measured every 3-6 months in our patient population for 8 years. Recently, with the advent of the mRNA COVID 19 vaccines (vac) by Moderna and Pfizer, dramatic changes in the PULS score became apparent in most patients.This report summarizes those results. A total of 566 pts, aged 28 to 97, M:F ratio 1:1 seen in a preventive cardiology practice had a new PULS test drawn from 2 to 10 weeks following the 2nd COVID shot and was compared to the previous PULS score drawn 3 to 5 months previously pre- shot. Baseline IL-16 increased from 35=/-20 above the norm to 82 =/- 75 above the norm post-vac; sFas increased from 22+/- 15 above the norm to 46=/-24 above the norm post-vac; HGF increased from 42+/-12 above the norm to 86+/-31 above the norm post-vac. These changes resulted in an increase of the PULS score from 11% 5 yr ACS risk to 25% 5 yr ACS risk. At the time of this report, these changes persist for at least 2.5 months post second dose of vac.We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.

    Finally! Medical Proof the Covid Jab is “Murder”


    [Video: 03:59]

    ‘ It’s the 22nd November 2021 and this is the moment when the jabbing has to stop.

    A couple of hours ago Darren Smith, the editor of the excellent The Light Paper, sent me a paper from the medical journal Circulation which proves that the covid-19 jabbing experiment has to stop today. I believe that any doctor or nurse who gives one of the mRNA covid jabs after today will in due course be struck off the appropriate register and arrested.

    The journal Circulation is a well-respected publication. It’s 71-years-old, its articles are peer reviewed and in one survey it was rated the world’s no 1 journal in the cardiac and cardiovascular system category.

    I’m going to quote the final sentence of the abstract which appears at the beginning of the article. This is all I, you – or anyone else – needs to know.

    `We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy and other vascular events following vaccination.’

    That’s it. That’s the death bell for the covid-19 mRNA jabs.

    The endothelium is a layer of cells lining blood vessels and lymphatic vessels. T cells are a type of white cell.

    We always knew these jabs were experimental. My video in December 2020, just under a year ago, warned about these specific risks. I read out a list of possible adverse events published officially by the American Government.

    But now we have the proof of the link.

    The mRNA jab is, remember, known not to stop people catching covid. And it is known not to stop people spreading it. I don’t believe anyone disputes these facts.

    And yet vast numbers of deaths and serious injuries have occurred among people who have been jabbed. Look at the item entitled ‘Updated: how many are the vaccines killing?’ on my websites.

    Now we have the evidence to stop the jabbing programmes.

    In the study quoted in Circulation, a total of 566 patients aged 28 to 97 were tested. They were equally divided among men and women.

    ‘At the time of this report,’ says the author, ‘these changes persist for at least 2.5 months post second dose of vaccine.’

    At the very least, the use of these jabs must stop now. Immediately, until more long-term tests are done.

    If there were any journalists left in the mainstream media, this news would be lead item on all TV and radio programmes and be on the front pages of all newspapers.

    Thank heavens for free speech platforms such as BNT which enables me to bring you this news.

    I’ve said for a year that this jab was an experiment – certain to kill and injure.

    We’ve always known that to experiment on people without their full consent and understanding – after disclosing all the risks and potential side effects – is a crime.

    Now the evidence exists that must stop this experiment.

    If the covid jab experiment continues after today then we know for absolute sure that this is not a medical treatment, it is a cull.

    Please share this video immediately with everyone you know.

    Thank you. ‘

  42. COVID Vaccine Intended To Reduce World’s Population
    Without Anyone Suspecting Says Leading Doctor


    [Video – 11:03]

    ‘ The leading doctor credited with improving early treatment of COVID-19 said in a conference that the goal of vaccine transmission campaigns is to “control and kill off a large proportion of our population without anyone suspecting that we were poisoned.”

    “The deaths that are meant to follow the vaccinations will never be able to be pinned on the poison. They will be too diverse, there will be too many, and they will be in too broad a timeframe for us to understand that we have been poisoned,” claims Dr. Shankara Chetty.

    According to his website, South African family doctor Dr Shankara Chetty, “has treated 7,000 Covid-19 patients without a single hospitalization or death,” combining his insights with his medical background along with his observations of government censorship orders and censorship of medias to support its conclusions.

    Joining the Zoom conference (watch below) as a Doctor, Chetty began by asking the following questions:

    “I think the perspective around what is happening is vitally important. We need to understand what the aim is. Everyone knows that there’s inconsistencies, that there’s coercion, but we need to understand why. Why is it there?” … ‘

    Dr Chetty’s exposition is masterful and convincing.

  44. German euthanasia clinics refusing unvaccinated customers

    Irony has been declared many times in this pandemic but now, from Covid-riddled Germany comes the final proof: you can’t kill yourself now unless you’ve been vaccinated. As European countries battle to limit the spread of the virus, Verein Sterbehilfe – the German Euthanasia Association – has issued a new directive, declaring it will now only help those who have been vaccinated or recovered from the disease. In a statement, the association said:

    “Euthanasia and the preparatory examination of the voluntary responsibility of our members willing to die require human closeness. Human closeness, however, is a prerequisite and breeding ground for coronavirus transmission. As of today, the 2G rule applies in our association, supplemented by situation-related measures, such as quick tests before encounters in closed rooms.”

    ‘Close encounters in closed rooms’ – what a fabulous German euphemism for assisted suicide. The term ‘2G’ meanwhile refers to a system which only allows free movement for leisure activities for the geimpft oder genese— ‘vaccinated or recovered.’ God forbid that a person without the jab should try to end it all – talk about a vaccine passport to the afterlife…

    “I’m sorry. We cannot euthanise you unless you demonstrate
    your willingness to die by first taking the COVID death shot.”

    If you wish to kill yourself in Germany,
    you must do it twice…

  46. Why Isn’t Everyone In Bangladesh Dead From COVID?

    ‘ Bangladesh just reported zero COVID deaths in the entire country in a 24-hour period. Charitably, one-quarter of the population is vaccinated. This poor, incredibly densely populated nation appears poised on the verge of achieving herd immunity – despite violating every principle the high priests of the pandemic assure us are necessary to beat COVID.
    Why? How is this possible?

    Bangladesh has a population of roughly 167 million people. These people are jammed together in an area the size of Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania has a population of roughly 13 million.

    Bangladesh has a population density of over 3000 people per square mile. The population density of the United States is 94 people per square mile.

    Keep in mind that the average population density for Bangladesh includes areas of the nation that are essentially uninhabitable. Urban areas of the nation are almost incomprehensibly more densely packed.

    Dhaka, the nation’s capital, has a population density of 36,941 residents per square kilometer. That is 95,677 people per square mile.
    The poor live in vast, unbelievably dense slums. That’s at least 40% of the population and keep in mind that ‘poor by Dhaka standards’ is so far below U.S. poverty levels as to be virtually incomprehensible to the average American. Dhaka is regularly named one of the world’s least livable cities behind just behind war-torn disaster zones in the Middle East.

    Living conditions in Bangladesh are unsanitary, squalid, and dangerous. Bangladesh is a desperately poor country. Any academic talk of social distancing or disinfection of work areas or schools is an indulgence in fantasy. People hang on by their fingernails. They survive. They have no time or money or resources for games. If anything we are being told by the lords of the lockdown is true, Bangladesh ought to be a killing field. This is the virus’s fantasy come true. The entire nation is a petri dish.

    COVID should be tearing through the slums of Dhaka like wildfire, and the bodies should be stacked like cordwood in the narrow, filthy alleys that separate the shacks jammed with people and the gutters running with filth. A single cough could infect dozens of people already weakened by other diseases, malnourished, and unable to afford medical care.

    It is not. The contagion is burning out. We have been lied to. COVID is vanishing from Bangladesh… ‘
