Japan Has Never Had Anything Close to a COVID Lockdown and Now Its COVID Crisis is Almost Over With New Cases Dropping to Less Than 100 a Day

By Joe Hoft
Published October 18, 2021 at 2:00pm



Japan didn’t follow the rest of the world and certainly never followed the WHO’s recommendations related to COVID.

Japanese Vice President Says WHO Should Be Renamed the CHO or the "Chinese Health Organization" (VIDEO)

Hot Air reports:

Most of the coverage we provided during Japan’s bungled turn hosting the Olympics this summer dealt with the nation’s spiraling COVID infection rates and lagging mass vaccination efforts. But while they limited the in-person attendance of the actual games, the lockdowns and restrictions the government imposed were fairly mild.
People were still allowed to go out to bars and restaurants, albeit with modest capacity limits and the streets were far from empty. The Associated Press described the measures as a series of “relatively toothless states of emergency.” That makes this week’s news all the more puzzling to some medical professionals. The COVID crisis across Japan, and particularly in Tokyo, has all but evaporated. In less than two months, Tokyo has gone from reporting more than 6,000 new cases per day to less than 100 this week. And not even the government can explain why.
Almost overnight, Japan has become a stunning, and somewhat mysterious, coronavirus success story. Daily new COVID-19 cases have plummeted from a mid-August peak of nearly 6,000 in Tokyo, with caseloads in the densely populated capital now routinely below 100, an 11-month low.
The bars are packed, the trains are crowded, and the mood is celebratory, despite a general bafflement over what, exactly, is behind the sharp drop.
Japan, unlike other places in Europe and Asia, has never had anything close to a lockdown, just a series of relatively toothless states of emergency.
This may not be as much of a “mystery” as the Japanese Health Ministry is making it out to be. Part of the decline is no doubt attributable to the country’s accelerated vaccination push. While it started off very slowly, they’ve now surged to the point where 70% of the population has received the shots. Others point to the fact that the Japanese were very accustomed to wearing face masks in public even before the pandemic began.
Another factor is that the people remaining in Japan who have not taken the vaccine have possibly already had the China coronavirus.

Whatever the reason, by not shutting down their economy, Japan is now stepping out of this period in world history with less impact to its people and economy than most other nations, including the US.

Washington State Trooper Speaks Out After Being Fired Over Refusal to Take Mandated COVID Vaccine

By Kristinn Taylor
Published October 18, 2021 at 1:20pm

A Washington State Patrol trooper whose signoff video went viral last weekend spoke to the Fox News Channel on Monday about being fired for refusing to take the state-mandated COVID vaccine. Now former Trooper Ron Lamay appeared on Fox & Friends First in an interview with co-host Carley Shimkus.



Lamay’s video has garnered over 1.4 million views since being posted Saturday night by Seattle talk radio host Jason Rantz:

“This is my final signoff. Um, after twenty-two years of serving the citizens of the State of Washington I’m being asked to leave because I am “dirty”. Um, numerous fatalities, um, injuries, I’ve worked sick, I’ve played sick, um, we’ve buried lots of friends over these years. I’d like to thank you guys, I’d like to thank the um, citizens of Yakima County as well as my fellow officers within the valley.

Without you guys I wouldn’t have been very successful and you’ve kept me safe and got me home to my family every night. Um, thank you for that. Um, wish I can say more but, um, this is it. So stay 10-34 this is the last time you’ll hear me in a State Patrol car. And Jay Inslee can kiss my ass.” (Transribed by TGP.)

“…You know, it wasn’t a question. When the governor of the state of Washington started this mandate project, my wife and my family, we’re not taking it. We don’t do vaccines. We don’t do flu shots, or any of that stuff. So, over the last month it’s been nothing but just beating up our fellow employees, constantly telling them they have to vax. They have to do this, they have to do that. Our leadership was actually asking for some directive regards to COVID: What to do for COVID, for traffic stops. We worked eighteen months without having any type of issues. And now suddenly we have to have these mandatory vaccines. So that’s, not taking the vaccine was not even a question. The process, how they did it was ridiculous and making people do this or you’re losing your job was ridiculous.”

“…I filed for the religious exemption. My family, we’re God-fearing people as well as a lot of the other troopers I work with. They did accept our exemptions after some time, but then they they told us, sorry, there’s no job you can do with your exemption. So they came out and told us, ‘Well, we can retrain you for a different position, but there’s only a few positions and you’re going to have to move across the state.’ Obviously wouldn’t be to the salary that we have. At twenty-two years I’m maxed out with regards to pay. So, this is the best I’ll make the rest of my career. So, for me to take a lesser position in regards to pat would be very detrimental to my family. These are the types of actions they were doing. They were not very open or clear what they wanted to do, how they wanted to do it.

People had very good questions. In fact, our chaplain, our chaplain with the chaplaincy foundation here, he’s even being fired. This is a gentleman that his job is to push the chaplaincy and they’re not even going to accept his exemption.

The Unvaccinated Are Looking Smarter Every Week

By Thomas T. Siler, M.D.

There is a massive propaganda push against those choosing not to vaccinate against COVID-19 with the experimental mRNA vaccines. Mainstream media, the big tech corporations, and our government have combined efforts to reward compliance and to shame and marginalize non-compliance. Their mantra says that this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. Persons who choose not to vaccinate are characterized as unintelligent, selfish, paranoid people who don’t read much and live in a trailer park in Florida (or Alabama, or Texas, or name your state).

Never has there been such an effort to cajole, manipulate through fear, and penalize people to take an experimental medical treatment.



However, as time has passed with this pandemic and more data accumulates about the virus and the vaccine, the unvaccinated are looking smarter and smarter with each passing week. It has been shown now that the vaccinated equally catch and spread the virus. Vaccine side effect data continues to accumulate that make the risk of taking the vaccine prohibitive as the pandemic wanes. Oral and IV medications (flccc.net) that work early in the treatment of COVID-19 are much more attractive to take now as the vaccine risks are becoming known, especially because the vaccinated will need endless boosters every six months.

First, let’s address the intelligence of the unvaccinated. Vaccine hesitancy is multi-factorial and has little to do with level of education or intelligence.

Carnegie Mellon University did a study assessing vaccine hesitancy across educational levels. According to the study, what’s the educational level with the most vaccine hesitancy? Ph.D. level! Those can't all have been awarded to liberal arts majors. Clearly, scientists who can read the data and assess risk are among the least likely to take the mRNA vaccines.

The claim that there’s a pandemic of the unvaccinated is, therefore, patently untrue. As a retired nurse from California recently asked, “Why do the protected need to be protected from the unprotected by forcing the unprotected to use the protection that did not protect the protected in the first place?” If the vaccine works to prevent infection, then the vaccinated have nothing to worry about. If the vaccine does not prevent infection, then the vaccinated remain at some risk, and the unvaccinated would be less likely to choose a vaccine that does not work well.

The mRNA vaccine efficacy is very narrow and focused on the original alpha strain of COVID-19. By targeting one antigen group on the spike protein, it does help for the original alpha strain, but it is clear now it does not protect against Delta strain and is likely not protective against any future strains that might circulate. It also appears that the efficacy wanes in 4-6 months, leading to discussions about boosters.

Several authors have pointed out that vaccinating with a “leaky” vaccine during a pandemic is driving the virus to escape by creating variants. If the booster is just another iteration of the same vaccine, it likely won’t help against the new strain but will, instead, produce evolutionary pressure on the virus to produce even more variants and expose us to more side effects. Why, then, is this booster strategy for everyone being pursued?

This vast Phase 3 clinical trial of mRNA vaccines in which Americans are participating mostly out of fear is not going well. It is abundantly clear for anyone advocating for public health that the vaccination program should be stopped. Iceland has just stopped giving the Moderna vaccine to anyone which is a good step in the right direction. Sweden, Denmark, and Finland have banned the Moderna vaccine for anyone under the age of 30.

VAERS, our vaccine adverse effect reporting system, showed at the beginning of this week 16,000 deaths, 23,000 disabilities, 10,000 MI/myocarditis, 87,000 urgent care visits, 75,000 hospital stays, and 775,000 total adverse events. The VAERS system is widely known to under-report events, with an estimated 90 to 99% of events going unreported there.

Eudravigilance, the European reporting system now associates 26,000 deaths in close proximity to administration of the vaccine. Whistleblower data from the CMS system (Medicare charts) showed close to 50,000 deaths in the Medicare group shortly after the vaccine.

An AI-powered tracking program called Project Salus also follows the Medicare population and shows vaccinated Medicare recipients are having worse outcomes week by week of the type consistent with Antibody Dependent Enhancement. This occurs when the vaccine antibodies actually accelerate the infection leading to worsening COVID-19 infection outcomes. Antibody Dependent Enhancement has occurred previously with trials of other coronavirus vaccines in animals. The CDC and the FDA are suppressing this data and no one who receives the vaccine has true informed consent.

The Rome declaration has 6,700 medical signatories attesting that the handling of the pandemic amounts to crimes against humanity for denying the best medical treatment and continuing to advocate for harmful vaccines. The evidence is right in front of Americans to end the propaganda and mass mask psychosis.

The media narrative of perpetual fear is falling apart. Norway, Sweden, and Denmark have ended all COVID restrictions and are doing much better than the US, UK, and Israel, three countries that continue to vaccinate into the pandemic.

Mexico, Guatemala, Indonesia, almost all of Africa, and parts of India have low vaccination rates and are doing much better than the US, something attributed to their managing the pandemic by using Ivermectin.

Over 500,000 people attended the Sturgis motorcycle rally in August and there was no super spread of COVID-19. Football season started in August and stadiums around the country are packed with 80,000 fans yelling and screaming with no masks. There have been no superspreader events, yet the students are forced to go back to masking in class. This makes no sense.

If the vaccine is so important why do our government leaders and illegal aliens not have to take it? Currently, 13 states that are Democratic with high vaccination rates have the highest “case” rates (using a faulty PCR test), while Republican states are all doing better. How does this happen?

It should be clear that the government has manipulated COVID to create perpetual fear, so we’ll hand it our liberty. In this giant battle between our government and the unvaccinated, I hope enough people will refuse to comply so that we can unite to stop this madness.

I know this decision is very difficult for many people when it comes to losing their job. To the vaccinated, please don’t take any boosters for you’ll just be perpetuating the risk of side effects and new variants.

If we allow the government to decide this medical decision for us, it is a short step for the government to say it can decide other medical decisions for you, e.g., all persons over 75 never be resuscitated; people may have only three children (or two or one) with mandatory sterilization for women; or refusing the government’s demands will see you denied health care.

Is this the totalitarian state you want to live in? If you are proudly vaccinated now and on the government side, what about the next government mandate, when you’re on the other side, coerced into a decision you don’t want, how will you feel then?

It is obvious that the government (with the Fauci subset), the media, and big tech, are trying to divide us and take away the freedoms we have enjoyed as Americans. I am praying that all who call themselves Americans can unite to end this medical tyranny and regain a free America before it is too late. Peacefully resist and do not comply.

Biden Quietly Slipped Secret Clause into Vaccine Mandate Docs That Allow Damages for Serious Side Effects

October 17, 2021
by Kyle Becker


Written by Kyle Becker

The Biden administration has quietly authorized damages to be settled with coerced vaccine takers if they suffer serious side effects under the still-unissued federal vaccine mandate. The clause was buried deep in documents in a Division of Federal Employees’ Compensation bulletin issued earlier in October.

“On September 9, 2021, President Biden issued an executive order mandating COVID-19 vaccination for most Federal employees,” the document states, although the pertinent OSHA regulation has still not been formally issued. “The order directed each agency to implement a program to require COVID-19 vaccination for all of its employees, with exceptions only as required by law.”

“The Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) covers injuries that occur in the performance of duty,” the bulletin goes on. “The FECA does not generally authorize provision of preventive measures such as vaccines and inoculations, and in general, preventive treatment is a responsibility of the employing agency under the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 7901. However, care can be authorized by OWCP for complications of preventive measures which are provided or sponsored by the agency, such as adverse reaction to prophylactic immunization.”

“Further, deleterious effects of medical services furnished by the employing establishment are generally considered to fall within the performance of duty,” the FECA announcement continues. “These services include preventive programs relating to health.”

“However, this executive order now makes COVID-19 vaccination a requirement of most Federal employment,” the FECA bulletin claims. “As such, employees impacted by this mandate who receive required COVID-19 vaccinations on or after the date of the executive order may be afforded coverage under the FECA for any adverse reactions to the vaccine itself, and for any injuries sustained while obtaining the vaccination.”

While civilians who voluntarily take the vaccines appear to have no substantive civil recourse, those who take it due to the announced but still-unissued federal vaccine mandate appear to have special privileges that the rest of America does not. The FECA bulletin then highlighted the following actions to be taken:
1. Because COVID-19 vaccination is a specific event occurring during a single day or work shift, any adverse reactions or injuries should be reported on Form CA-1, Notice of Traumatic Injury and Claim for Continuation of Pay / Compensation. Where two vaccinations are required several weeks apart, reactions to each are considered separate claims.
2. When a claim is received for injury due to receipt of the COVID-19 vaccination, the claims examiner should determine if the vaccine was received prior to September 9, 2021. If the vaccination was received prior to this date, coverage is afforded only if the vaccine was administered or sponsored by the employing agency. See PM 2-0804.19.
3. The claims examiner should then confirm that the employee is covered by the September 9, 2021 executive order. The order applies to any executive agency as defined in 5 U.S.C. 105 – agencies that fall under the executive branch of the government (excluding the Government Accountability Office). The order does not apply to employees of the United States Postal Service. If there is any question regarding applicability of the executive order, the claims examiner should query the employing agency. If the employee is not covered by the executive order, coverage is afforded only if the vaccine was administered or sponsored by the employing agency.
4. If the employee is covered by the executive order and vaccination was received on or after September 9, 2021, coverage may be afforded for (1) adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccination and (2) injuries sustained as the direct result of an employee receiving their mandated vaccination. Examples of such injuries include but are not limited to accidents while commuting a reasonable distance to and from the vaccination site and slip and fall injuries occurring at the vaccination site.
5. The claims examiner should, however, ensure that the employee followed any employing agency policy with respect to obtaining their mandatory vaccination. The executive order directs each agency to implement, to the extent consistent with applicable law, a program to require COVID-19 vaccination for all of its Federal employees.
a. If an employing agency requires employees to receive their mandatory vaccination at specific times and/or at a specific location(s), coverage is only afforded if the employee follows the agency’s vaccination policy.
b. If any employing agency allows employees to obtain their mandatory vaccination at any time or location, coverage is afforded regardless of where or when the employee receives their vaccination, with the only limitation being for that of reasonableness.
6. The executive order requires full vaccination, which is considered to be two shots of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, also known as Comirnaty, two shots of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, or one shot of the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine. The order does not cover or mandate booster vaccinations. Should there be any changes regarding approved vaccination brands or mandated vaccination frequencies, the FECA program will publish additional guidance.
The document, entitled FECA bulletin 22-01, can be read in full here and was issued on October 1. CNBC in December underscored that “you can’t sue Pfizer or Moderna if you have severe Covid vaccine side effects” and “the government likely won’t compensate you for damages either.”

While the VAERS system for reporting side effects has not been fully vetted for accuracy, there are also numerous accounts by medical professionals that many Covid vaccine side effects are not being reported, as well.

As Becker News reported earlier, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine authorization documents did not show the “full authorization” that the Biden administration claimed, since the pharmaceutical company had liability protections tied to the original EUA. The Biden administration’s recognition that serious side effects could lead to damages that need to be compensated because of the federal vaccine mandate but denial of civil litigation as a recourse for civilians illustrates just another two-tier system of justice in Biden’s America.

Australian pundits are wondering if the $200 million Mickleham quarantine camps are a “white elephant” now that the lockdowns are ending in Victoria. Doesn’t sound like it from Dan’s answer.

“We will have Mickleham at the beginning of the next pandemic whenever that might be, we’ll have Mickleham whenever next there is a massive bushfire event and we need somewhere to put hundreds and hundreds of people who have lost their homes. We will have Mickleham for all sorts of reasons and, and, we’ll have Mickleham for in just a few months for people who come back here and who are not Vaccinated or when another variant pops up.”

‘The unofficial number we have is about over 3,200; so about of third of the department’

The back and forth between the mayor and the Chicago police union continues, with the city sending out a flurry of emails and memos as its vaccine mandate enters its first full week in effect. At least two memos have gone out since Friday’s deadline for all city workers to report their vaccination status to the city, but Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara said thousands of officers are still refusing to do so.

He said officers who are still refusing to report their vaccination status will be called in by supervisors on Monday, and once again will be asked will be asked to comply with the mandate.

“If they refuse, it sounds like they’re going to go into a no pay status, effective immediately,” Catanzara said.

Chicago Mayor Accuses Police Union Of Trying To 'Induce An Insurrection' Over Vaccine Mandate

MONDAY, OCT 18, 2021 - 03:49 PM

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot - who appears to have violated both local and state mask mandates at the WNBA finals yesterday - said that the city's Fraternal Order of Police is attempting to "induce an insurrection" using misinformation to oppose vaccine mandates.


"We believe that the FOP leadership is trying to foment an illegal workstop, and a strike - plain and simple... The contract is clear and has been known for a long time. The police union is not authorized to strike."

"What we've seen from the FOP, in particular the leadership, is a lot of misinformation. A lot of half-truths and frankly flat-out lies, in order to induce an insurrection."

Last week, the head of the Chicago police officers union on Tuesday called on its members to refuse to comply with the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, which took effect on Friday.
“Do not fill out the portal information,” Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara said in a video to officers posted on YouTube.
“I’ve made my status very clear as far as the vaccine, but I do not believe the city has the authority to mandate that to anybody—let alone that information about your medical history.”
“It’s safe to say that the city of Chicago will have a police force at 50 percent or less for this weekend coming up,” Catanzara added.

Lightfoot’s mandate requires city workers to report their vaccine status by Friday or be placed on a “no-pay” status.



On Friday, the FOP and Lightfoot's administration sued each other - with the city filing a complaint against the union and Catanzara for supporting a "work stoppage or strike regarding the vaccine mandate."

Hours later, the FOP filed suit against Lightfoot and Chicago PD Supt. David Brown, accusing them of failing to negotiate with the union over the mandate, according to CBS2 Chicago.
At a hearing late Friday afternoon, city attorneys assured a Cook County judge officers who show up to work over the weekend will be able to work and will be paid, but said they could be written up for disciplinary action if they do not comply with the requirement to report their vaccination status by the Friday night deadline.
After lengthy arguments, the judge granted the city’s request for a temporary injunction barring Catanzara from making any public comments that encourage members of the FOP to defy the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate until the next hearing on the city’s lawsuit on Oct. 25. -CBS2
Meanwhile, as we noted earlier Monday, Chicago has canceled all time-off requests.

Catanzara said he believes up to half of the entire Chicago police department are ready to not comply with the vaccine mandate, with city officials also bracing for a potential huge loss of personnel, given the latest order that's gone out across the CPD is the restriction of time off, which typically only happens ahead of July 4th - or other weekends expected to bring surges in violent crime.

According to the latest reports:
Days off are being cancelled and any time-off will require approval from a deputy chief or above, according to a new memo from First Deputy Supt. Eric Carter. The memo is being read at all roll calls for the next five days.
"Until further notice: The use of elective time off by all sworn CPD members is restricted," the memo says.
Also on Sunday the CPD issued another memo calling for vaccine compliance, but this time expressly stating that the city is prepared to fire or discipline officers found "disobeying a direct order".

Dr. Gottlieb Warns New "Super Variant" Is Behind Latest COVID Comeback In UK

MONDAY, OCT 18, 2021 - 02:50 PM
The UK thought it had COVID mostly licked, but Dr. Scott Gottlieb (former head of the US FDA) warned Monday that a new "super-strain" evolved from the delta variant might be behind a recent upsurge in cases in the UK, just after PM Boris Johnson and his health secretary announced plans to loosen foreign travel restrictions.



On Twitter, Dr. Gottlieb, pointed out that the UK recently recorded its biggest single-day jump in new COVD cases in 3 months. At the same time, Dr. Gottlieb notes, the new variant known as AY.4v with the S:Y145H mutation in the spike has spread quickly and presently comprises 8% of new cases being confirmed in the UK.



The UK reported 57 new deaths on Sunday, along with 45,140 more cases. The fact that this daily tally is the highest in three months is what's prompting the concerns raised by Dr. Gottlieb.

1634599655917.png

Dr. Gottlieb, a former head of the FDA who is frequently in the press, said the UK and other countries need to ramp up research on the new variant. Specifically there needs to be more research as to wether the new variant is more transmissible: "We need urgent research to figure out if this delta plus is more transmissible, has partial immune evasion,” he said. "There’s no clear indication that it’s considerably more transmissible, but we should work to more quickly characterize these and other new variants. We have the tools."

The mutation that Dr. Gottlieb is talking about has been spreading in the UK since about July.

1634599727756.png

As Dr. Gottlieb explains, this isn't a call for immediate action or a snap-back to the lockdown days. Instead, there needs to be a "coordinated global" response in terms of research and other measures to keep an eye out for the next round of variants and "super variants".

Furthermore: how much longer until Dr. Anthony Fauci declares this new "super variant" an immediate threat.

Several Children Shot In Weekend Violence As Chicago Cancels All Time Off Requests, Bracing For Vax Non-Compliance

MONDAY, OCT 18, 2021 - 11:57 AM

Several children were among at least 22 shot over another violent Chicago weekend which left four people dead - numbers which were lower from the prior weekend of the 10th-11th which saw at at least 39 shot. This weekend's violence included an 11-year old boy struck in the leg by a bullet in the living room while playing alongside his siblings, as well as a 16-year old shot inside a car, and a 17-year old girl wounded while outside with friends.

Ahead of the upcoming Halloween weekend at the end of the month - which in past years has seen spikes in gun violence - the city is bracing for a greatly reduced police force patrolling the streets after the city's controversial vaccine mandate for police officers took effect Friday night (with the midnight deadline to upload vaccination status to an online portal), which many have said they will ignore. ABC7 Chicago writes that tensions between the police union and the city continue to escalate: "While no officers were taken off the streets this weekend and the standoff has now reached the courts with both sides suing each other."

Previously, Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara (who's now been issued a gag order) said he believes up to half of the entire Chicago police department are ready to not comply with the vaccine mandate, with city officials also bracing for a potential huge loss of personnel, given the latest order that's gone out across the CPD is the restriction of time off, which typically only happens ahead of July 4th - or other weekends expected to bring surges in violent crime.

Also on Sunday the CPD issued another memo calling for vaccine compliance, but this time expressly stating that the city is prepared to fire or discipline officers found "disobeying a direct order".

1634600149829.png

The contents of the memo, obtained by local media, includes the following:
"TO BE READ AT ALL ROLL CALLS FOR SEVEN (7) CONSECUTIVE DAYS.
This AMC message informs Department members of consequences of disobeying a direct order to comply with the City of Chicago's Vaccination Policy issued 8 October 2021 and being the subject of the resulting disciplinary investigation. A Department member, civilian or sworn, who disobeys a direct order by a supervisor to comply with the City of Chicago's Vaccination Police issued 8 October 2021 will become the subject of a disciplinary investigation that could result in a penalty up to and including separation from the Chicago Police Department. Furthermore, sworn members who retire while under disciplinary investigations may be denied retirement credentials. Any questions concerning this AMC message may be directed to the Legal Affairs Division via e-mail," the memo said.
The memo was issued just after 8pm Sunday evening, with the police union quickly responding in a widely circulated social media post:



"Still think this is about COVID or public health?? This mayor is a complete and utter joke. She is the epitome of hypocrisy. This is plan and simple union busting. The other city unions better wake up. Today it's us under attack. Tomorrow it will be you if you challenge this tyrant. We will not relent," the Facebook post said.

The police union featured a recent photo of Mayor Lori Lightfoot at the Chicago Sky game, posing maskless amid a huge crowd of tightly packed people.

Biden Admin Threatens To Make Unvaxx'd Navy SEALs Repay Their Training Costs

MONDAY, OCT 18, 2021 - 09:16 AM
Authored by Thomas Lifson via AmericanThinker.com,

I can think of few better ways to ensure that fewer qualified people will apply to join the nation's most elite fighting unit than the policy just announced by the U.S. Navy's COVID Consolidated Disposition Authority. It has issued a directive that, as Hank Berrien reports, threatens "removing them from special warfare, reducing their salaries, and forcing them to repay training."
7.a. and 7.b.: The Vice Chief of Naval Operations retains authority for non-judicial punishment and courts-martial. Involuntary extension of enlistments is not authorized on the basis of administrative or disciplinary action for vaccination refusal. The CCDA may seek recoupment of applicable bonuses, special and incentive pays, and the cost of training and education for service members refusing the vaccine.
Since training a SEAL is very expensive, this amounts to financial ruin for the heroes who undergo incredibly harsh training and who offer their lives to protect us.

President Trump's interior secretary, Ryan Zinke, a former SEAL, appropriately criticized the plan on Facebook:
Our Nation's best don't sign up to be a Navy SEAL to cash in on our training years later. We give a blood oath to fight for freedom and defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. In doing so, we bear a burden of emotional, psychological, physical, and family stress of constant deployments and low pay because we love our Country. Shame Mr. President for not recognizing the service and sacrifice and further insulting SEALs by making this about money.
Put aside any consideration of the effectiveness of the vaccines or of the side-effects that may take years to become apparent. This escalation of bullying of the bravest and most self-sacrificing among us threatens national security.



Trying to bully people like this? Really?

Physically fit young adults like the SEALS face a negligible threat from COVID, so why sacrifice the effectiveness of the nation's elite fighting units?

The price that is being inflicted on the nation far outweighs any benefit from the vaccines.

FDA To Allow "Mixing and Matching" Of COVID Boosters

MONDAY, OCT 18, 2021 - 10:00 PM

mRNA or a disabled adenovirus? According to the latest iteration of the "science" it's really all the same and just jam it in there, because as the NYT reports, the Food and Drug Administration will allow Americans to "mix and match", i.e., receive a different Covid-19 vaccine as a booster than the one they initially received, a move that could "reduce the appeal of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and provide flexibility to doctors and other vaccinators."

In other words, the mRNA lobby has just booked the entire second floor at Scores and is hoovering up industrial amounts of Colombian marching powder while surrounded by the best silicone money can rent.

In the latest example that money talks and what was scientific consensus until this morning walks, the government would not recommend one shot over another, and may instead note that using the same vaccine as a booster when possible is preferable, but vaccine providers could use their discretion to offer a different brand, a freedom that state health officials have been requesting for weeks. Maybe one should check if the bank accounts of said state health officials have suddenly seen a mysterious inflow of outside funds that prompted their agitation.

In any case, the approach was foreshadowed on Friday, when so-called "researchers" presented the findings of a federally funded “mix and match” study to an expert committee that advises the Food and Drug Administration.

The study found that recipients of Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose shot who received a Moderna booster saw their antibody levels rise 76-fold in 15 days, compared with only a fourfold increase after an extra dose of Johnson & Johnson.

We can only assume that this "study" is different than the one that took place just a few months ago that prompted the same NYT to report that "Britain Opens Door to Mix-and-Match Vaccinations, Worrying Experts"...



... and in which we read that:
Some scientists say Britain is gambling with its new guidance. “There are no data on this idea whatsoever,” said John Moore, a vaccine expert at Cornell University. Officials in Britain “seem to have abandoned science completely now and are just trying to guess their way out of a mess.”
It now turns out that Britain was simply early in guessing which way a whole lot of bribes money can sway the "science" du jour.

Amusingly, even as the FDA agonizes over greenlighting covid booster shots for Americans younger than 65 - having initially rejected the biotech/pharma lobbied outcome which has been eagerly sought by the Biden admin - Federal regulators this week are aiming to greatly expand the number of Americans eligible for booster shots. As such, the FDA is now expected to authorize boosters of the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines by Wednesday evening; it could allow the mix-and-match approach by then. The agency last month authorized booster shots of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for at least six months after the second dose.

Then, on Thursday, a CDC advisory committee will also take up the booster issue and will then issue its own recommendations (to go ahead and do it because science says "mix and match" is cool). By the end of the week, tens of millions more Americans could be eligible for extra shots.

So how exactly do we know that the "mixing and matching" that was anathema as recently as January is now to be encouraged? Well, because the "experts" emphasized last week that the new "data" was based on small groups of volunteers and short-term findings.

We repeat:
small groups of volunteers and short-term findings of mixing and matching revealed that all is well, so by extension, the protocol is perfectly suitable for hundreds of millions over years if not decades.

Furthermore, only antibody levels — just one measure of the immune response — were calculated as part of the preliminary data, not the actual levels of immune cells primed to attack the coronavirus, which scientists say are also an important measure of a vaccine’s success. Then again, in a country that ignores natural covid immunity - because, well, that doesn't lead to an even bigger yacht for certain biotech CEOs - this was to be expected.

It gets better: perhaps in an attempt to mitigate its previously reported on how experts were "worried" due to precisely this "mix and match" approach, the NYT notes that "while the research on mixing and matching doses is somewhat thin, even some scientists who have strongly criticized the Biden administration’s booster policy said that providers should be given a measure of discretion as the campaign ramps up."

One wonders if these are the same "scientists" who strongly disagreed with a growing number of countries - such as Sweden, Norway and Finland - suspending use of the Moderna vaccine in young people "for precautionary reasons" following reports of "possible rare side effects." Something tells us that that the answer is a resounding yes.

“If you look at the data, it certainly looks like it might be better,” Dr. Paul A. Offit, the director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, said of Moderna or Pfizer boosters for Johnson & Johnson recipients. “I think we should move quickly on this, because it’s already happening.” He should know - after all this is the same Dr. Offit who was "honored by Bill and Melinda Gates during the launch of their Foundation’s Living Proof Project for global health."

Demonstrating just how extensively the scientific consensus can swing in under a year, at the meeting on Friday of the Food and Drug Administration’s expert panel - of which Dr. Offit is a member - top C.D.C. officials argued that providers needed latitude to offer different vaccines as boosters because - get this - patients might have had adverse reactions after their initial shots or presented other new concerns. In other words, a patient may not want a booster due to a bad experience with the original vaccine. So here's the brilliant solution: just give them the other vaccine. And what's most remarkable is that since this is fundamentally a ploy to get people who have had a JnJ vaccine to get a second, mRNA-based vaccine, the "scientific" thinking is that giving patients the same vaccine which was halted in various Scandinavian countries due to its "possible rare side effects" is literally what the doctor ordered.

Ultimately, however, money is involved and as most of our readers know by now, money can induce some truly creative "scientific" thought. Like for example the thinking by Pfizer and Moderna CEOs who know that they need this approval to continue making billions from the vaccine: the federal government will cover the cost of a different vaccine as a booster only if the Food and Drug Administration authorizes the approach, officials told the NYT.

“I’d like to reiterate how important it is from a programmatic perspective to have a little bit of flexibility,” Dr. Melinda Wharton, a top vaccine official at the C.D.C., told the F.D.A. panel. The same "little bit of flexibility" why the NYT back in January called "a mess" and "gambling"

And just to avoid potentially embarrassing questions about conflicts of interest, the ironclad clause was invoked - the public health interest.
“From a public health perspective, there’s a clear need in some situations for individuals to receive a different vaccine,” said Dr. Amanda Cohn, another high-ranking C.D.C. official.
Finally, what would yet another scientific flip-flop be if it didn't include, you guessed it, Anthony Fauci.
Anthony S. Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease expert, publicly suggested on Sunday that the government was headed toward granting greater leeway, at least for Johnson & Johnson recipients. “I believe there’s going to be a degree of flexibility of what a person who got the J.&J. originally can do, either with J.&J. or with the mix-and-match from other products,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.”
A far cry from what he said in January, but that's hardly news to anyone.

Australian Official Lashes Out At Ted Cruz After "Covid Tyranny" Tweet: 'Glad We're Not Like Texas'

MONDAY, OCT 18, 2021 - 08:50 PM

Days ago Texas Senator Ted Cruz called out Australia's extreme Covid policies as but more "Covid tyranny". The policies have lately received widespread scorn and mockery from many conservative commentators and political pundits, so perhaps it was only a matter of time before US Congressional leaders joined in.

"The Covid tyranny of their current government is disgraceful & sad.
Individual liberty matters. I stand with the people of Australia,"
Cruz had tweeted out, commenting on a video featuring top Australian official Michael Gunner rolling out what's widely being called the world's strictest vaccine mandate to date.

Gunner, who is chief minister of Australia’s Northern Territory, went through a litany of occupations that required getting the jab in order for venues to safely reopen.

"If your job includes interacting with members of the public, then you need to get the jab," he said of the new mandate. He had listed off jobs ranging from hospitality, to work in retail or supermarkets, to bank tellers, and hair dressers as among the many occupations that will require it.

All Australians whose professional work will involve any interaction with the public are now mandated to get the vaccine, or else face steep fines and other possible measures:
The territory announced last week that workers who interact with the public must receive their first vaccination shot by Nov. 12 or face a $5,000 fine, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported. About 68% of its residents were already fully vaccinated as of Sunday.
On Sunday, a clearly incensed Michael Gunner fired back at the Texas Republican - unusual in that Cruz was offering a critique which was not officially representative of the US government. Thus it's clear that Cruz's tweet got under the Australian politician's skin.
"Here are some facts," the Australian official wrote. "Nearly 70,000 Texans have tragically died from COVID. There have been zero deaths in the [Northern] Territory. Did you know that? Vaccination is so important here because we have vulnerable communities and the oldest continuous living culture on the planet to protect. Did you know that?"
Gunner went on: "We don’t need your lectures, thanks mate," according to the tweeted message.

"You know nothing about us. And if you stand against a life-saving vaccine, then you sure as hell don’t stand with Australia. I love Texas (go Longhorns), but when it comes to COVID, I’m glad we are nothing like you."

But clearly many Aussie citizens themselves are not at all happy to be living under a government that's made living normal daily life pretty much impossible and "a thing of the past", resulting in recent huge protests, and in turn sending more and more police to the streets and out in force at supposedly "dangerous" public parks.

Seemingly endless examples have come out of Australia over the course the pandemic demonstrating that individuals' rights have often been completely suspended, including government agents literally combing people's Facebook posts for signs of merely attending protests - and literally showing up their door unannounced in Gestapo-like fashion.

Ivermectin-Crazy Physician Assistant’s License Is Suspended
Emily Shugerman
Sat, October 16, 2021, 2:15 PM

A Washington State physician’s assistant who mounted a “public campaign touting the use of ivermectin” for treating COVID, allegedly bullying hospital staffers to prescribe the unproven drug, had his license suspended by the state medical commission.

Scott Miller runs a private pediatric medical practice in Washougal that provides services such as genetic testing, lactation counseling, and treatment for pediatric autism, ADHD, and sleep disorders. A quote from Miller on his office website says there is “there is no greater calling and joy in [his] life than helping my patients achieve wellness.”

In recent months, Miller has become a presence at Washougal-area community meetings where, according to the Washington Medical Commission, he has spread rampant COVID misinformation, including claims that science does not support mask-wearing on airplanes.

At a May 10 school board meeting, he said he had begged parents to unenroll their children from school after the district asked them to talk to their kids about mask-wearing and social distancing, according to a report from the medical commission. He said he often shows patients who are concerned about COVID outbreaks pictures of himself and his friends “in Montana, skiing, in a bar ... listening to live music.”

“My wife just got back from Texas and nobody is wearing masks,” he said at the meeting. “I will not allow [our kids] to wear a mask. I didn't allow them to wear a mask when we went to the airport and got on a plane. I guess some of us know the science on that.” (Miller appeared to back down from these statements when questioned by the state medical board; denying ever telling patients to disregard social distancing guidelines and claiming he tells patients to follow CDC guidelines on masking, according to the commission’s report.)

The medical commission became involved after receiving reports that Miller had embarked on “a public campaign touting the use of ivermectin in treating [COVID-19].” Ivermectin is primarily used to treat parasites and has not been approved for treatment of COVID-19. According to a suspension order filed by the commission Oct. 12, Miller prescribed ivermectin to at least one COVID patient without adequate examination, and attempted to pressure local hospital staff into prescribing it to several others.

One patient, referred to in medical board documents as “Patient B,” entered the hospital Sept. 1 with acute respiratory failure; medics who transported him said he was “unresponsive with unreadable stats” upon arrival. Two days later, he declined intubation and walked out of the hospital against medical advice—but, according to the medical board, “in accordance with [Miler’s] advice to pursue treatment with ivermectin.”

Miller wrote the patient—whom he had never examined—a prescription for ivermectin to treat “head lice,” according to the medical board. Not one day later, the man was back in the hospital for respiratory failure. During his stay, the patient’s spouse called the hospital multiple times demanding he be placed on ivermectin, at Miller’s urging. Miller also participated in a phone call with the spouse and the hospital, in which he claimed the ICU doctor was doing “nothing” for her patients and called the nurse on the line a “pawn.”

“I'm Scott Miller. We know what you're doing,” he said on the recorded call. “Well, not you. You're a pawn, but you know what's happening.”

“I want you to carry this guilt because this is disgusting,” he added, before telling the patient that the physician “didn't give a shit” about him and asking the patient’s spouse to delete the recording.

The patient died Sept. 12.

State medical boards have increasingly started cracking down on healthcare workers who spread misinformation. The Federation of State Medical Boards recently issued a statement saying that spreading vaccine misinformation contradicts physicians “ethical and professional responsibility to practice medicine in the best interests of their patients,” and could be grounds for suspension or revocation of their license. Last month, the Oregon Medical Board revoked the license of a physician who claimed mask-wearing was dangerous and could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.

The Washington medical commission also claimed Miller had failed to disclose crucial information about his disciplinary history when he applied for a medical license in 2013.

At the time, according to the board, Miller was under investigation by the California Physician Board for providing medical care and writing drug orders for controlled substances without a supervising physician’s authorization, and for failing to document and maintain medical records. (The California board later issued him a formal citation and fined him $2,500.) Miller claims he submitted evidence of this to the Washington medical board at the time, but the board maintains it never received it.

The medical commission suspended Miller’s license Oct. 12, citing “unprofessional conduct.”

Miller did not respond to a request for comment from The Daily Beast, but claimed in his response to the medical commission that the complaints against him were not brought by patients, and were “almost completely void of facts.”

“I am very concerned about the lack of hospital system's interest in life saving therapies, rather continuing to implement treatments that have yielded over 700,000 thousand [sic] lives lost,” he wrote. “I am curious why I am being investigated for using medications that I have used ubiquitously to treat lice and scabies, croup, and pneumonia. And I am wondering if the board has any interest in the rapid resolution of symptoms that my patient experienced.”

Miller has been crowdfunding to mount a defense. A GoFundMe started by a local man named Joshua Brock to support Miller’s legal bills had garnered $48,147 in donations as of Saturday. The petition claims Miller is “working nearly all of his waking hours to support families who are dealing with COVID-19” and “needs our help if he is to continue serving our community.” Donors praised Miller for “follow[ing] the guidelines of God over the illegal mandates of man,” and “search[ing] beyond 'standard, cookie-cutter' options.”

Miller thanked his supporters in a post on his practice’s Facebook page, saying that he had “heard many flattering words from you, talking about my courage etc,” but that “the only word I would want to be synonymous with my name, is servant.”

“My decision to serve was not made by me, It was offered to me, by the highest authority,” he wrote. “The only relevant question put to me was, ‘Is there a life not worth saving?’”

Thousands Gather at California State Capitol to Protest Newsom’s School Covid Vaccine Mandate (VIDEO)

By Cristina Laila
Published October 18, 2021 at 10:39pm


Thousands gathered in Sacramento to protest California’s school Covid vaccine mandate on Monday.

Recall, Governor Gavin Newsom announced the nation’s first k-12 vaccine mandate for in-person learning.

Fresh off of a rigged recall election, Newsom has gone into overdrive.

The mandate will go into effect once the FDA gives full approval of the shots for their age groups.

Currently, students 16 or older are eligible for the Pfizer jab; children ages 12 to 15 are able to get the Pfizer shot under emergency use.

Parents, kids and teachers staged a walk-out to protest vaccine mandates.

Italians Hold Massive Protests in Trieste Against Government’s COVID Vaccine Mandates (VIDEOs)

By Joe Hoft
Published October 18, 2021 at 8:00pm


Italians are fed up with their government’s recent mandates requiring employees having to prove that they have taken the COVID vaccine in order to maintain employment. They showed it over the weekend in Trieste.

Thousands of Italians protested in Trieste, Italy, the northern city and seaport.

The reason is that these Italians find the government’s mandatory COVID vaccination requirement to maintain employment is tyranny. The protests were at the port.



And the protests moved to the central area of the city.

Union Pacific Railroad Files Federal Lawsuit Over Unions’ Objections to Joe Biden’s Forced Vaccines

By Jim Hoft
Published October 18, 2021 at 5:30pm


SMART, the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers, is one of North America’s most dynamic and diverse unions with 203,000 members. The union consists of sheet metal workers, service technicians, bus operators, engineers, conductors, sign workers, welders, production employees and more. SMART is the largest railroad operating union in North America, with more than 500 Transportation locals.

Last Thursday SMART Union General Chairperson Roy Davis sent a letter to advise Union Pacific Company that the SMART Union strongly disagrees with the company’s “unilateral” requirement for COVID vaccinations.

SMART demanded an immediate response and demands that Carrier negotiates in good faith.

This is a huge move by America’s transportation employees union.

There are now three unions at Union Pacific Railroad protesting the Biden vaccine mandates.

On Friday Union Pacific Railroad filed a federal lawsuit over the unions’ objections to the Biden forced vaccine mandates.



Progressive Railroading reported:
Union Pacific Railroad on Oct. 15 filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court after receiving communications from three unions protesting the Class I’s vaccination mandate.
The unions involved are the Transportation Division of the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers (SMART-TD), the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) and Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees (BMWED).
“This action is necessary to prevent any disruption of the national rail network and to avoid any impact on America’s supply chain, as it continues to recover from the pandemic,” UP spokeswoman Robynn Tysver said in an email.
In the lawsuit, UP seeks to have any dispute over the mandate resolved through the various dispute resolution procedures outlined in the Railway Labor Act, she said.
“We continue to work with our employees and their union representatives as we comply with the law. We look forward to the court’s help in that effort,” Tysver added.
UP announced last week that it will comply with the White House’s executive order requiring employees of federal contractors to get vaccinated by Dec. 8.

UPDATE: Japan’s COVID Numbers Are Way Down Since September But Numbers Do Not Appear to be Correlated to Vaccination Rates

By Joe Hoft
Published October 18, 2021 at 6:15pm

As reported earlier, Japan didn’t follow the rest of the world and certainly never followed the WHO’s recommendations related to COVID. What was the cause of this drop.

Earlier today we reported that Japan’s numbers of new cases of COVID are way down to almost nothing.


We reported that Japan didn’t listen to the WHO which Japan recognized was managed by China. Japan also never shut down the economy.


The numbers are way down since September but we are not able to link this to Ivermectin use.

And the vaccination rate does not appear to correlate with the drop in cases.

Trump Surgeon General Adams Blames Unvaccinated for Colin Powell Death — ‘Didn’t Take the Proper Measures to Lower Spread’

PAM KEY18 Oct 2021224

Former Trump administration Surgeon General Jerome Adams said Monday on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” that former Secretary of State Colin Powell died because some Americans were not vaccinated.

Anchor Chris Cuomo said, “In terms of his passing and how he would want it understood, what do you say about the idea that Powell passing while being vaccinated is proof that the vaccination is not necessary?”

Adams said, “It’s absolutely untrue. We’ve got people out there who are in the vaccine-resistant crowd. We’ve got people who have completely different agendas, agendas that have nothing to do with vaccines, and as you mentioned, want to divide us. We’ve got a lot of people out there who are just thrown, who react to misinformation. They need the correct facts. For those of you out there in the moveable middle, I want you to know there have been 7,000 breakthrough deaths since people have been fully vaccinated starting in January of this year.

That’s compared to over 300,000 unvaccinated people who died in this country, 7,000 to 300,000. These vaccines work.”

He continued, “Of those breakthroughs, we know about 6000 of them reported have been over the age of 65 as General Powell was. We know a disproportionate number of them have been people with co-morbidities, as General Powell had. So he was someone primed for a breakthrough infection.

He’s someone who did what he was supposed to do. He got vaccinated, but it proves we can’t just say we’re only going to protect the vulnerable, we’re only going to worry about those people getting vaccinated, and everyone else doesn’t matter. We all matter. And the fact is that General Powell died because we didn’t take the proper measures to lower spread in this country. We didn’t do everything that we could.”

Adams added, “Please, please hear me, for the sake of General Powell and everyone else out there who is vulnerable and who is doing the right thing, please consider getting your vaccine if you haven’t yet.”

Fraternal Uprising: College Students Reject ‘Surveillance State’ Coronavirus Restrictions

College students across the country are rejecting school-imposed Chinese coronavirus restrictions, some equating the rules with the “growth of the surveillance state.”

Shocking restrictions include: “tracking them with apps, restricting their travel, threatening them with arrest unless they disclose their vaccination status, and making them leave the classroom if they want to take a sip of water,” the Daily Mail reported on Monday.

According to the report, varying Chinese coronavirus restrictions at schools around the country are leading a “messy new era of the pandemic,” with one student saying that it “feels like the school is blackmailing me.”

Some institutions only have rules for unvaccinated students, while others dictate the actions of both the unvaccinated and the vaccinated and even require them to mask and undergo weekly testing.

Colorado State University surpassed a “typical mandate” in favor of threatening to have any student arrested who does not register their vaccine status, the report states. Some people allegedly viewed the mandate as a threat toward unvaccinated students. According to the report:
Colorado State University was criticized for sending a letter that warned students they would face trespassing charges if they were caught on campus without telling faculty whether or not they were vaccinated. The school has since said that unvaccinated students are welcome – they just need to know who they are.
The University of Southern California (USC) reportedly makes students leave the classroom if they want to briefly remove their face masks to take a sip of water.

“‘You wonder, where is all this medical information going? Can professors see it?’ USC sophomore Marin Ruiz said.

Ive League schools like Harvard and Yale are mandating vaccines for all students, and Princeton and Yale have mandated that unvaccinated students wear face masks. The report said:
Many students say the rules are an ‘overreach’ by college staff and a violation of their privacy. They have organized Change.org petitions to reverse rules like a mandatory ‘bio button’ at Oakland University in Michigan that would give schools student health data but also track their movements.
The petition, which contended that the buttons were a “violation of their privacy,” received nearly 2,500 signatures, and the college ultimately made the buttons optional. Another Michigan school, Albion College, also wanted to make its students sign up for Aura, which is a tracing app.

“It’s the growth of the surveillance state,” student Dan Smith, from Wayne State University in Detroit, told The Wall Street Journal. “It just feels like overreach.”

Study Published On NIH Website Finds ‘No Discernable Relationship’ Between Vaccine Status And COVID Cases, Says Infection Rate May Be Higher Among Fully Vaccinated

Study Published On NIH Website Finds ‘No Discernable Relationship’ Between Vaccine Status And COVID Cases, Says Infection Rate May Be Higher Among Fully Vaccinated

A new study published in the NIH NCBI database and authored by Harvard professor S. V. Subramanian, Ph.D, and Penn State professor Akhil Kumar, Ph.D claims that vaccination rates have “no discernable relationship” with the amount of new COVID cases, and notes that “In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people.”

“At the country-level, there appears to be no discernable relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days,” the report states. “In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people. Notably, Israel with over 60% of their population fully vaccinated had the highest COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the last 7 days.”

Additionally, the report points out that “The lack of a meaningful association between percentage population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases is further exemplified, for instance, by comparison of Iceland and Portugal. Both countries have over 75% of their population fully vaccinated and have more COVID-19 cases per 1 million people than countries such as Vietnam and South Africa that have around 10% of their population fully vaccinated.”

“Across the US counties too, the median new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in the last 7 days is largely similar across the categories of percent population fully vaccinated (Fig. 2),” the report continues.

“Notably there is also substantial county variation in new COVID-19 cases within categories of percentage population fully vaccinated. There also appears to be no significant signaling of COVID-19 cases decreasing with higher percentages of population fully vaccinated (Fig. 3).”

The study further notes that “Of the top 5 counties that have the highest percentage of population fully vaccinated (99.9–84.3%), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identifies 4 of them as ‘High’ Transmission counties. Chattahoochee (Georgia), McKinley (New Mexico), and Arecibo (Puerto Rico) counties have above 90% of their population fully vaccinated with all three being classified as ‘High’ transmission. Conversely, of the 57 counties that have been classified as “low” transmission counties by the CDC, 26.3% (15) have percentage of population fully vaccinated below 20%.”

North Carolina Police Officers and Firefighters Face Off With City of Raleigh on Vaccine Mandates

A group of 118 police officers, firefighters, and other city employees have banded together to form the City of Raleigh Freedom to Choose (CRFC) coalition to challenge the city’s vaccine mandates for employees.

CRFC is represented by James Lawrence of Envisage Law.

In an Oct. 11 letter addressed to Raleigh Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin and other city officials, Lawrence gave a deadline of Oct. 23 for the city to respond to a request for the mandate to be lifted or revised, or face litigation.

The mandate itself “suffers from a variety of procedural, statutory, and constitutional problems,” Lawrence said, citing discrimination between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated as its predominant issue.

Lawrence referred to a January city ordinance the Raleigh City Council enacted that stated the city “will not tolerate illegal discrimination and encourages its corporate community partners to oppose discrimination in all forms.”

City Policy
On Sept. 17, the city began requiring its employees to be vaccinated from the CCP (Chinese Community Party) virus or be subjected to weekly testing until Wake County’s positivity rate is less than 5 percent and there is “no significant or high community transmission.”

The city offered $250 and two days of bonus leave to employees who were vaccinated by the city’s deadline.

Unvaccinated employees who undergo weekly testing are not eligible for promotion unless they get vaccinated by Dec. 31.

Seventy-eight percent of the 4,000 city employees are vaccinated.

Since there is no written policy on the mandate, Lawrence said he had to construct the details from a review of a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), in which he found three areas of discrimination: testing, pay and leave, and career development.

Though the city acknowledges that vaccinated employees can contract and spread COVID-19, Lawrence said, unvaccinated employees are nevertheless still required to be tested, while vaccinated employees are exempt.

“At the same time, the city appears to dismiss natural immunity to COVID-19,” he said.

Employees who have recovered from COVID-19 must be tested weekly, while vaccinated employees, even if those employees lack antibodies, aren’t required to be tested, he said.

The $250 bonus with two days of paid leave for the vaccinated but not the vaccinated and the denial of promotions to unvaccinated employees is also discriminatory, Lawrence said.

Inconsistencies
Of the inconsistencies, Lawrence questioned the city’s “progressive discipline” policy of requiring an unvaccinated employee to continue to report to work for five weeks even if he or she refuses the weekly testing.

In its FAQ, the intent is “to provide an opportunity to correct behaviors or performance.”

“The city’s justification for this policy is noteworthy,” Lawrence said. “The city does not muster a shred of science or data in support of it. What the city offers instead is its bald, unreasoned expectation that employees will either get vaccinated or submit to testing. But that is speculative.”

One must ask, Lawrence said, what is happening during the three weeks before being sent home.

“Is SARS-CoV-2 less likely to spread in the workplace because the virus knows the non-compliant employee is in the progressive discipline process?” Lawrence asked. “Are non-compliant employees less likely to spread COVID-19 to the public? Would these disobedient employees not be safer at home? CRFC is left to speculate.”

North Carolina Genetic Information Act
Another defect of the policy, Lawrence said, is its violation of the North Carolina Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, which states that an employer can’t “deny or refuse employment to any person or discharge any person from employment on account of the person’s having requested genetic testing or counseling services, or on the basis of genetic information obtained concerning the person or a member of the person’s family.”

The statute defines genetic information as “information about genes, gene products, or inherited characteristics that may derive from an individual or a family member,” Lawrence said.

“Proteins, to include vaccines produced by the COVID-19 vaccines, are ‘gene products,’” Lawrence said. “There is no shortage of scientific authority on this fundamental point of biology.”

Because the city’s mandate is based on if employees have vaccine-induced “gene products,” or spike proteins, Lawrence said that the classification alone is being used to discriminate against the employee based on his or her genetic information.

Constructive Discharge
The mandate also violates a statute that prohibits “constructive discharge” in which an employer creates intolerable conditions for the employee resulting in the employee quitting.

“Here, the city shifts all the cost and burden of testing onto employees, who must get tested on their own time and at their own expense,” Lawrence said. “At the same time, the city also effectively blocks unvaccinated employees from any promotional or advancement opportunities.”

Among others, the mandate also violates the Civil Rights Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and it contains “significant state and federal constitutional problems.”

A communications spokesperson for the city of Raleigh said the city won’t comment on the letter.

Behold: A Favor for Federal Employees

A lawsuit will be filed against a civilian agency of the government next week. It will be a class-action on behalf of vax-resistant federal employees of that agency.

We want cookie-cutter lawsuits against the other secretaries and directors of federal agencies. Employees of other federal agencies should spend the weekend getting familiar with the Tore Says channel on Telegram, learn about her honeycomb of open-source efforts are structured, and even create appropriate rooms for your home agencies within her channel. For example, employees of the Department of Agriculture who are interested in being part of such a strategy should spend the weekend learning about Tore's channel and setting up a safe place for themselves inside.

When the new lawsuit comes out next week, those people in the Department of Agriculture will be able to take it and with a minimum of changes (and the assistance of other cells within Tore-World), get a similar suit filed against their own secretaries

Terrifying in it's blatant wrongness; do they not expect an "after" to come in which they are held accountable for knowingly lying?

Your risk from COVID-19 is not determined by age, fitness level or community...your risk is determined by vaccine status. ~78% of all new cases & hospitalizations in #Sask in Sep were unvaccinated or partially vaccinated people.

Southwest Caves, Scraps Plan to Put Unvaccinated Workers on Unpaid Leave After Pilots Protest Covid Vax Mandate

By Cristina Laila
Published October 19, 2021 at 10:26am

Southwest has caved and will not place unvaccinated workers on unpaid leave after the December 8 deadline.

Thousands of Southwest flights were canceled after pilots and employees boycotted the company’s vaccine mandate.

The pilots led the way and sued Southwest.

The Southwest Airlines Pilots Association fought the tyranny in court.

“The new vaccine mandate unlawfully imposes new conditions of employment and the new policy threatens termination of any pilot not fully vaccinated by December 8, 2021,” the legal filing said. “Southwest Airlines’ additional new and unilateral modification of the parties’ collective bargaining agreement is in clear violation of the RLA.”

Southwest changed direction just one day after its employees gathered outside of the airline’s headquarters in Dallas to protest the company’s vaccine mandate.
CNBC reported:
Southwest Airlines has scrapped a plan to put unvaccinated employees who have applied for but haven’t received a religious or medical exemption on unpaid leave starting by a federal deadline in December.
Southwest’s senior vice president of operations and hospitality, Steve Goldberg, and Julie Weber, vice president and chief people officer, wrote to staff on Friday that if employees’ requests for an exemption haven’t been approved by Dec. 8, they could continue to work while following mask and distancing guidelines until the request has been reviewed.
The company is giving employees until Nov. 24 to finish their vaccinations or apply for an exemption. It will continue paying them while the company reviews their requests, and said it will allow those who are rejected to continue working “as we coordinate with them on meeting the requirements (vaccine or valid accommodation).”
“This is a change from what was previously communicated. Initially, we communicated that these Employees would be put on unpaid leave and that is no longer the case,” they wrote in the note, which was reviewed by CNBC.
Southwest confirmed the policy change, which comes just weeks before the deadline.

Italians Protesting COVID Mandate in Trieste Chant “Vigano, Vigano, Vigano” After Catholic Arch-Bishop Carlo Maria Vigano Offered Them Support

By Joe Hoft

Protesters of Italy’s COVID mandate in Trieste listened to a message from Arch Bishop Vigano during their protest. After his message, the people began to chant “Vigano, Vigano, Vigano!”

We’ve heard from Catholic Arch Bishop Vigano before. He warned the world after the 2020 Election of the forces of evil.
Arch Bishop Vigano recently warned of the evil behind the COVID viruses.
Yesterday the Arch Bishop sent words of encouragement to those in Trieste, Italy protesting Italy’s COVID mandates. The government in Italy mandated that all workers be vaccinated. The unvaccinated are ineligible for work. Italians across the country find this an infringement of their God-given rights.

Arch Bishop Vigano backs the protesters in Trieste. The protesters cheered his name after hearing his remarks.

The translation of the below tweet is as follows:
Puzzer returned to speak to communicate a message from Mgr. Viganò for the square of Trieste. I think it’s the last video I can shoot because honestly the atmosphere around here is too overwhelming on an emotional level. I enjoy this magnificent, unrepeatable square.

The people of Italy are against evil. They have friends in Arch Bishop Vigano and America.
