COVID-19 Link Dump: Mysterious Excess Deaths in Australia, Nasal Irrigation Reduces Hospitalization and Death, Biden Declares “Pandemic Is Over”

I should have hit “publish” on this post when the news was fresh five months ago. But anyway, here ya go…

Dr John Campbell on mysterious excess deaths in Australia this year:

Dr Campbell must have mis-spoken when he said he recorded the video in April 2022 because he’s citing statistics generated in June 2022


From ScienceDaily:

Starting twice daily flushing of the mucus-lined nasal cavity with a mild saline solution soon after testing positive for COVID-19 can significantly reduce hospitalization and death, investigators report.

They say the technique that can be used at home by mixing a half teaspoon each of salt and baking soda in a cup of boiled or distilled water then putting it into a sinus rinse bottle is a safe, effective and inexpensive way to reduce the risk of severe illness and death from coronavirus infection that could have a vital public health impact.

Click for the scientific journal article.

The irrigation, aka lavage, was not done by simply filling a spray bottle with the saline solution and squirting it up your nose. Participants used one of two high pressure devices: NAVAGE or Neilmed Sinus Rinse. The manufacturer’s of those devices provided at least partial funding for the study.


From ZeroHedge:

About a year and a half too late to the game, Joe Biden finally admitted in a Sunday broadcast interview with 60 Minutes that the covid pandemic is over, stating:

“We still have a problem with COVID. We’re still doing a lotta work on it. It’s — but the pandemic is over. if you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it’s changing. And I think this is a perfect example of it.”   

Apparently, in the ever teetering mind of Joe Biden the prevalence of masks was a measure of the prevalence of covid.  Of course, this all depends on where in the US or the world you have been living.  In red states, masks have been gone for around two years with the majority of people not wearing them. And despite the predictions (and fantasies) of many on the political left, conservatives were not dropping dead in the streets; far from it.

COVID-19 Link Dump: Cochrane Says No Clear Benefit to Masking; mRNA “Vaccines” Cause Heart Damage; Vax Bioterrorism Orchestrated by DoD?; Pfizer and FDA Committed Murder; Kirsch Bets $50,000 That the Vax Injures Heart of At Least 20% of Recipients

The Cochrane meta-analysis of masks and hand hygiene in prevention of influenza-like illness (ILI):

There is uncertainty about the effects of face masks. The low to moderate certainty of evidence means our confidence in the effect estimate is limited, and that the true effect may be different from the observed estimate of the effect. The pooled results of RCTs did not show a clear reduction in respiratory viral infection with the use of medical/surgical masks. There were no clear differences between the use of medical/surgical masks compared with N95/P2 respirators in healthcare workers when used in routine care to reduce respiratory viral infection. Hand hygiene is likely to modestly reduce the burden of respiratory illness, and although this effect was also present when ILI and laboratory‐confirmed influenza were analysed separately, it was not found to be a significant difference for the latter two outcomes. Harms associated with physical interventions were under‐investigated.


Heart Damage from mRNA vaccines. From The Daily Skeptic:

New evidence has emerged that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are routinely injuring the heart of all vaccine recipients, raising further questions about their safety and their role in the recent elevated levels of heart-related deaths. 

The latest evidence comes in a study from Switzerland, which found elevated troponin levels – indicating heart injury – across all vaccinated people, with 2.8% showing levels associated with subclinical myocarditis.


COVID vax bioterrorism orchestrated by Dept of Defense. From LifeSite News:

Latypova has reported how the COVID-19 “vaccines” were fully produced, controlled, and distributed by the DOD, which managed to classify them not as medicines or pharmaceuticals, but as “COVID countermeasures” under the authority of the military. This means they are not required to comply with U.S. law governing the manufacturing quality, testing, effectiveness, safety, and labeling of drugs or other medical products.

Yet even though these “countermeasures” did not fall under the regulatory and monitoring authority of the FDA and CDC, these agencies orchestrated a “fake theatrical” public relations performance giving the impression to an unsuspecting population that these standard safeguards were indeed in place.

With the pharmaceutical companies, the government agencies and more were involved in “a conspiracy to commit mass murder through bioterrorism and informational warfare operations worldwide,” Latypova asserted. “The evidence is overwhelming that there is an intent to harm people by the COVID 19 injections, so-called ‘vaccines,’ and other nonsensical COVID response measures implemented in lockstep by governments all over the world,” including lockdowns, mask mandates, and school closures.


Pfizer and FDA committed murder according to firebrand Paul Craig Roberts:

Pfizer and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), charged with protecting public health, knew in February 2021 that the Covid “vaccine” that went into use in mid-December 2020 was deadly and under law should have been recalled.  Pfizer’s own internal documents recorded 1,200 deaths from the vaccine and tens of thousands of adverse health effects including cardiac disorders and spontaneous abortions over a two month period.  Understand, the report, which was to be locked up for 75 years, was a forced release resulting from a federal court order to the FDA. It is Pfizer’s own internal report.  It is not a report by independent medical scientists that some pretend “fact checker” can label as “misinformation.”

The report is now public.  Under law, as Pfizer and the FDA knew the “vaccine” was dangerous to life and health and did not recall it, they committed murder.  

The issue before us is the missing indictments for murder of the Pfizer executives and FDA officials who are responsible for the deaths and injuries of millions of people.

***

Don’t expect Congress or the Executive Branch to do anything.  Members of the House and Senate are dependent on campaign contributions, and Big Pharma are heavy contributors. The FDA is a marketing agent for Big Pharma.

Don’t expect the medical profession to do anything.  Big Pharma is responsible for 70% of medical research grants.  Medical scientists are not going to bite the hand that feeds them. Former editors of the New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet have said that they have no confidence in the research reported in the journals because 70% of the articles are financed by Big Pharma.  Big Pharma is also a large donor to medical schools.  The FDA, like all regulatory agencies, is captured and run by those they are supposed to be regulating.


You’re on! The $50,000 vax injury bet by Steve Kirsch:

On a Twitter space just now [Jan 14], I [Steve Kirsch] claimed that 20% (or more) of people develop objectively measurable cardiac injury within 4 months of the shot. 

Jonathan Bing (@jonbingnj) called me a misinformation spreader (which of course I took as a compliment).

I then challenged Jonathan, in front of a live audience, to put his money where his mouth is. 

To my delight (and utter amazement), he accepted.

Embalmer Reports Unusual High Frequency of Odd Clots

I don’t know if this is legitimate or not. Are the COVID-19 vaccines killing folks via blood clotting? Do your own research, form your own opinion. From RAIR:

Richard Hirschman, who has been an embalmer since 2001, has noticed “a change of condition of bodies since the roll-out of mRNA vaccines.” These changes include the huge increase in people with blood clots, the strange nature of these blood clots, and patients who have died of cancer without any of the tell-tale signs, such as hair loss and emaciation. “Unfortunately, there is a new normal,” he says. 

Hirschman has embalmed thousands of bodies during the course of his career. Last year, he handled over 600 himself. So he knows the signs to look for, and he knows what blood looks like. “In all my years of embalming, we would run across clots from time to time,” he says, “but since May last year, something about the blood has changed. It’s not normal. It’s drastic.”

When Hirschman first started seeing anomalies, he thought it strange, “but when you see the same thing over and over, you start to realize that something’s not right.”

***

Hirschman suspects the vaccine is causing these clots. “The reason why I feel the vaccine is related is that I have found these strange structures inside of people who supposedly never had covid but had been vaccinated.”

Looking back, Hirschman sees a date correlation. “It was January 2021 when they really started pushing the vaccines,” he recalls. “I have never been so busy in all my life. I was running into clots like crazy; even in February and March, the clotting was huge. Initially, it was in elderly people, and those were the first they tried to protect.”


This isn’t the first I’ve heard of this. Have you heard about the unusual number of high-level athletes dropping dead on the field of play over the last couple years? Some of those may well be clot-related.

Australian Bomb-Throwing, Pants-On-Fire Radical Claims the COVID Vaccines Are Dangerous

The various available vaccines, possibly even different batches from same manufacturer, have different adverse effect profiles

From News.com.au:

Former federal MP [Member of Parliament?] Dr Kerryn Phelps has revealed she and her wife both suffered serious and ongoing injures from Covid vaccines, while suggesting the true rate of adverse events is far higher than acknowledged due to underreporting and “threats” from medical regulators.

In an explosive submission to Parliament’s Long Covid inquiry, the former Australian Medical Association (AMA) president has broken her silence about the “devastating” experience — emerging as the most prominent public health figure in the country to speak up about the taboo subject.

“This is an issue that I have witnessed first-hand with my wife who suffered a severe neurological reaction to her first Pfizer vaccine within minutes, including burning face and gums, paraesethesiae, and numb hands and feet, while under observation by myself, another doctor and a registered nurse at the time of immunisation,” the 65-year-old said.

The Hot Crazy Matrix: Funny AND True

Yes, there are exceptions…

Have You Heard of Dry January?

See you in February. Or not.

I’ve run across a number of people who slowly increased their alcohol consumption over months or years, not realizing it was causing or would cause problems for them. Alcohol is dangerous, lethal at times.

From a health standpoint, the generally accepted safe levels of consumption are:

  • no more than one standard drink per day for women
  • no more than two standard drinks per day for men

One drink is 5 ounces of wine, 12 ounces of beer, or 1.5 ounces of 80 proof distilled spirits (e.g., vodka, whiskey, gin).

Dry January was conceived in the UK in 2012 or 2014. (A related concept is Sober October.) The idea is simply to abstain from all alcohol for the month of January. The Alcohol Change UK website can help you git ‘er done. Many folks notice that they sleep better, have more energy, lose weight, and save money. There are other potential benefits.

If you think you may have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol, check your CAGE score. It’s quick and easy.

Alternatively, if you make a commitment to a Dry January but can’t do it, you may well have a problem.

Bismuth Subsalicylate For Covid-19 Pneumonia?

Bismuth subsalicylate is readily available over-the-counter in the U.S. as Pepto Bismol, and in many other countries. It’s OTC here because it’s a very safe drug.

Frontiers in Drug Discovery published and article by U.S. authors suggesting a benefit for the use of oral bismuth subsalycilate for hospitalized patients with Covid-19 pneumonia. The benefit was a “marked improvement in oxygen requirements in most of the cases.” In other words, patients needed a lower amount of supplemental oxygen delivered to the lungs. That means lung function is improving.

This was a tiny study, only eight patients, and they were all pretty sick, as I recall. Most of them got dexamethasone, remdesivir, and either tocilizumab or baricitunib. To get into the study, they needed loose stools or diarrhea and at least five days of high oxygen requirements. (As an aside, I’ve notice many hospitalized COVID patients have heartburn, and in the final third of the pandemic to this point, diarrhea is often prominent.)

The biggest problems with the study are the lack of a control group and the small sample size. The authors admit this was just an exploratory study and call for a more thorough investigation. Who’s going to pay for that? Procter & Gamble, the distributors of Pepto Bismol? It sure as hell won’t be the makers of the vaccines, remdesivir, tocilizumab, or baricitunib

QOTD: Mitch McConnell Defines U.S. #1 Priority

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

“Providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the number one priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans. That’s how we see the challenges confronting the country at the moment.” 

I have no doubt a large majority of Democrats would agree with McConnell.

Shouldn’t we have a vigorous national debate about this proxy war with Russia before continuing?

Exactly what is the U.S. vital national interest in that war?

Is that war your personal #1 priority right now?

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!

Merry Christmas, y’all.

COVID-19 Link Dump: Twitter censored COVID-19 Dissidents, Myocarditis Is a Real Complication and 3X More Common after Moderna Vax, Suppression of COVID-19 Truth, Scottish Neonatal Deaths From the Vax?

The patient is wise to look away. If you watch the needle go in, it’ll hurt more.

I guess I’m still banned from my profile at LinkedIn. To find out why, they want me to send them a copy of my driver’s license. Ain’t gonna happen. All I figure is that my posts here didn’t go along 100% with the approved COVID-19 narrative. Or is it because LinkedIn is owned by Microsoft and I’m a Mac user? Doubt that.

Pre-Elon Twitter censored COVID-19 dissidents.

From Epoch Times:

New documents reveal how the United States government used a secret Twitter portal to censor COVID-19 content that contradicted the government’s narrative.

In its ongoing probe into Twitter’s censorship practices, America First Legal has obtained a fourth set of documents (pdf) exposing a secret Twitter portal that the Biden administration used to censor social media posts regarding COVID-19 that did not agree with its approved narrative.


Autopsy study…

Post-vax myocarditis is real:

….myocarditis can be a potentially lethal complication following mRNA-based anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination. Our findings may aid in adequately diagnosing unclear cases after vaccination and in establishing a timely diagnosis in vivo [live humans], thus, providing the framework for adequate monitoring and early treatment of severe clinical cases.


I chose the Pfizer vax because the Moderna product had three times the “dose.”

The various available vaccines likely have different adverse effect profiles

Myocarditis three times higher after Moderna compared to Pfizer:

Myocarditis cases hit levels two-to-three times higher in people with a second dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine than the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, research shows.

American College of Cardiology released a study last week that showed that males and females between 18 and 39 with the Moderna vaccine had higher rates of pericarditis and myocarditis. However, males ages 18-29 had the highest rates after receiving the second dose of Moderna.


From The Burning Platform:

Dr Robert Malone on censorship and suppression of COVID-19 truth:

Having personally lived through what may be among the most intensive slander, defamation and derision campaigns of the COVID crisis, none of what was described in this article surprised me. I think that I can probably guess the names of some of the interviewed physicians and medical scientists discussed in the article, as so many have shared their own experiences with me. But seeing it written out in a dry academic style and published like a case series study of global corporate, organizational and governmental psychopathology and greed is another thing altogether. I expected the article to bring a tear of relief at being heard and validated, but instead it just left me numb.


Dr John Campbell wonders if twice-normal neonatal deaths in Scotland are related to “the jab.”

I think Campbell is very cautious in his wording to that he isn’t censored by YouTube bots.

What Is a Woman?

I bet “she” has XX chromosomes, not XY

U.S Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson in her Senate confirmation hearing had difficulty defining “woman.” IIRC, she she couldn’t do it, saying “I’m not a biologist.” Well, I’m not either. But I do have a BS degree in Zoology from way back in 1977.

Without putting much thought into it, here’s my proposed definition of an adult male or female:

If you’re 18 or older (“adulthood” in the U.S.) and a majority of your body’s cells have XY chromosomes, you’re a man. If not, you’re a woman.

Check out this .gov website for alleged facts on sex chromosomes (X and Y). A snippet:

Variation in the number of sex chromosomes in a cell is quite common. Some men have more than two sex chromosomes in all of their cells (the XXY variation is called the Klinefelter syndrome), and many men lose the Y chromosome from their cells as they age. 

“Variation in the number of sex chromosomes in a cell is quite common.” Quite common? Klinefelter syndrome occurs in 1 to 2.5 per 1000 boys and men (0.1 to 0.25 percent). It’s news to me that “many men lose the Y chromosome from their cells as they age.”

If a “man” wants to compete as a “woman” in women’s sports, he/she should have a majority of cells with XX chromosomes. Not all cells, but at least 50.001%
