  1. 11 minutes in and this doctor is quite clear and interesting so far.

    One point she seems to make is about “shedding”. I have not wanted to believe in the shedding theory. It makes life too difficult to live when people close to you, or people you cannot avoid, are recently vaxxed or boosted. I’m still not completely sold on the idea, but it’s there, and any opinions on the subject from lurking or commenting doctors here would be appreciated.

    Hopefully she remains credible as I continue watching:

    • The Doctor recommended protective clothing laced with copper and silver. So, if you are worried about shedding maybe you could put some copper pennies and/or silver quarters in your pocket 🙂
      Fear porn works both ways.

        • LOL

          Everyone should buy a silver cross from Vladtepesblog. In this era of planting the seed, I do believe they will also keep away blood sucking politicians.

        • I’m not sure about the shedding thing – I have read about it somewhere, so I decided to take the easy route and I must admit I had a laugh.

          Found some men and women shed hair after injection, and that led me to some studies show masturbation does not cause hair loss, however studies show excessive use of marijuana, cocaine, meth and adderall can cause hair loss.
          Heparin and warfarin cause hair loss
          Beta blockers……I will look for my article that I read years ago about shedding – – quarantined individuals after some shots to prevent spread…….So I hope you guys learned something.

          I do believe this is the first time in history that the ineffectiveness of a drug is being blamed on those who haven’t taken it!

  2. In the olden days, when a dollar mattered, there were real consequences to crime and delinquency. Action was taken by the state because a) rule of law existed and b) money didn’t grow on trees.

    This meant that warehousing criminals in prison had to be combined with real work, and sometimes chain gangs, redeeming society through meaningful production.

    Why should hard-working tax payers pay again for criminals to sit on their asses? What is the deterrent value of this “punishment”?

  3. Thanh Hoa has suspended the use of a Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine batch after over 120 students were hospitalized following their inoculation.

    Since November 30, the central province has been vaccinating children aged 15-17 with the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. However, over 120 of the children were admitted to hospitals after exhibiting symptoms like nausea, high fever or breathing difficulties, the provincial Center for Disease Control (CDC) said Thursday.

    Of these, 17 had severe reactions, but their health has stabilized and they continue to be monitored at the hospital, the center said. The cause of their symptoms has yet to be confirmed by Thanh Hoa authorities.

    Thanh Hoa CDC director Luong Ngoc Truong said the province has stopped using the current vaccine batch. “We still have other batches, also Pfizer vaccines, so we will continue vaccinating the children,” he said.

    The suspended batch would be put into storage and could be used later for other groups like adults, Truong added.

    Vu Van Chinh, director of the Ha Trung District General Hospital, said side-effects following vaccination was normal, but are more likely to happen in children than adults.

    “Those who have reactions or faint need to be separated so no chain reaction occurs,” said Chinh.

  4. French far-right TV pundit holds presidential campaign rally

    Far-right former French TV pundit Eric Zemmour is holding his first campaign rally near Paris, a few days after he formally declared his candidacy for April’s presidential election in a video relaying his anti-migrants, anti Islam views

    VILLEPINTE, France (AP) — Far-right former French TV pundit Eric Zemmour is holding his first campaign rally Sunday near Paris, a few days after he formally declared his candidacy for April’s presidential election in a video relaying his anti-migrants, anti Islam views.

    The 63-year-old with multiple hate-speech convictions has unveiled his campaign’s slogan: “Impossible is not French,” a quote attributed to Napoleon.

    The rally, which was initially to take place in a Paris concert hall, has been moved to a bigger exhibition center in a northern suburb of the capital.

    The move was prompted by security reasons as a protest against Zemmour took place Sunday in the French capital, organized by over 50 organizations including far-left political parties, unions and anti-racist groups. Police had feared possible clashes with Zemmour’s far-right supporters.

    In the popular Paris neighborhood of Barbes, thousands of demonstrators took to the streets Sunday, marching behind a banner reading “Paris will silence the far-right.”

    Zemmour has gained strength on France’s political scene in recent months, starting to siphon off supporters from far-right National Party leader Marine Le Pen, who has long said she would run for the French presidency next year.

    Zemmour’s first rally comes one day after France’s main conservative Republicans party picked its presidential candidate. Valérie Pécresse, the head of the Paris region and a former minister from 2007 to 2012, as its presidential candidate.

    French President Emmanuel Macron, who defeated Le Pen in the 2017 presidential runoff, is expected to seek a second term but he has yet to declare his candidacy.

    The far-left leader of the Rebel France party, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who is seeking the presidency for the third time, also staged a rally on Sunday, gathering several thousand supporters in Paris.

    Other presidential candidates on the left include Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo for the Socialist party and Yannick Jadot, a former Greenpeace activist, for the Greens.

    • Éric Zemmour baptizes his party “Reconquest”

      This party represents an additional step for Eric Zemmour in his transformation from journalist to presidential candidate.

      The name leaked a few minutes from his meeting at the Parc des Expositions de Villepinte. According to information from BFM TV, confirmed by Le Figaro, Eric Zemmour’s party will be called “Reconquest”.

      This operation represents a new stage in his transformation from journalist to presidential candidate.

      • I say it at least once a year:
        La Reconquista is nothing we Sephardim celebrate. I get it, from a counterjihad perspective. But I know it from another, more personal angle.

        WE were there for more than a thousand years BEFORE Christ was born, let alone the Pirate Moh. That attachment to place was so strong we continued to speak Ladino – the dialect of Hispania Romana – for hundreds of years.

        Reference to “genuine Spanish” culture prior to the union of the two largest states, Castilla and Aragón, is as ahistorical and revisionist as the Myth of al-Andaluz.

    • Violence as French far-right TV pundit holds campaign rally

      Anti-racism activists were beaten up on Sunday as far-right former French TV pundit Eric Zemmour held his first presidential campaign rally near Paris, a few days after he formally declared his candidacy in a video highlighting his anti-migrant and anti-Islam views.

      Mr Zemmour has drawn comparisons in France to former US president Donald Trump because of his populism and ambitions of making the jump from the small screen to national leadership in France’s presidential election in April.

      The 63-year-old, who has multiple hate-speech convictions, unveiled his campaign’s slogan, “Impossible is not French”, a quote attributed to Napoleon.

      “What’s at stake is huge,” Mr Zemmour said. “If I win that election, it won’t be one more (political) changeover, but the beginning of the reconquest of the most beautiful country in the world.”

      Supporters at the rally sang France’s national anthem, shouted “Zemmour, president!” and “We will win!” while brandishing the tricolour French flag. AP reporters saw some activists dressed in black with “No to racism” on their jumpers being beaten up by people at the rally and forcefully removed from the room. The scuffles continued outside the room between anti-racism activists and security guards.

      Reporters from a French television show covering politics were booed and insulted by Mr Zemmour’s supporters ahead of his speech, leading to them being briefly escorted outside the room by security guards. They came back soon afterwards but Mr Zemmour harshly criticised the media in his speech.

      “They are making up polemics about books I wrote 15 years ago, they snoop into my private life, call me all sort of names … My adversaries want my political death, journalists want my social death and jihadists want my death,” he said.

      The rally, which was initially due to be held in a Paris concert hall, was moved to a bigger exhibition centre in a northern suburb of the capital for security reasons as a protest against Mr Zemmour took place on Sunday in Paris, organised by more than 50 groups including far-left political parties, unions and anti-racist groups. Police had feared clashes with Mr Zemmour’s far-right supporters.

      In the popular Paris neighbourhood of Barbes, thousands of demonstrators took to the streets on Sunday, marching behind a banner which read “Paris will silence the far-right”.

      Pauline Salingue, a spokeswoman for the head of the New Anti-Capitalist Party, said people “shouldn’t be seduced by these so-called anti-system profiles. Zemmour is a multimillionaire, Zemmour earns tens of thousands of euros per month, so how can he pretend to represent the little people, as he likes to say? It is a very serious scam.”

      Mr Zemmour has gained strength on France’s political scene in recent months, starting to siphon off supporters from far-right National Party leader Marine Le Pen, who has long said she would run for the French presidency next year.

      His first rally came one day after France’s main conservative Republicans party picked its presidential candidate, Valerie Pecresse – the head of the Paris region and a former minister from 2007 to 2012 – as its presidential candidate.

      French president Emmanuel Macron, who defeated Ms Le Pen in the 2017 presidential runoff, is expected to seek a second term but he has yet to declare his candidacy.

      The far-left leader of the Rebel France party, Jean-Luc Melenchon, who is seeking the presidency for a third time, also staged a rally on Sunday, gathering several thousands of supporters in Paris.

      Other presidential candidates on the left include Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo for the Socialist party and Yannick Jadot, a former Greenpeace activist, for the Greens.

      Those attending rallies for Mr Zemmour and Mr Melenchon were not required to show their French Covid-19 health passes, in line with a decision from the Constitutional Council that said the passes should not be used to restrict access to political meetings.

      Wearing a mask is mandatory in public gatherings, yet many of Mr Zemmour’s supporters at the rally in Villepinte defied the government restriction.

    Hundreds marched through Copenhagen on Saturday, in protest over COVID19 restriction.

    Led by the ‘Men in Black’ activist group, the protesters carried torches and chanted slogans while marching through the city.

    A large police presence was deployed to prevent an escalation of the event.

  8. Slovenia: Several detained in Ljubljana at protest against new COVID measures

    Protesters gathered in Ljubljana’s Republic Square on Saturday to voice their opposition to the government’s most recent COVID-19 measures to curb the epidemic, as well to the proposal for a new anti-COVID law.

    Several demonstrators were visibly physically detained by the police as they marched through the city centre.

    Police stopped the rally in Adjovscina Square and urged protesters to leave the site. Protesters clashed with police on Miklosiceva Street, where police blocked the road. Police dispersed the unannounced rally shortly after that.

    As the rallies were unannounced and the organisers did not take security measures, police officers, dog handlers, and cavalry were also involved to maintain order.

    According to the Ljubljana Police Directorate, they prevented endangering people and property, maintained public order and ensured road traffic safety by calling and directing the participants of the rally.

  9. UK – Evidence Of Cocaine Reportedly Found In Toilets Near Boris Johnson’s Office

    Evidence of cocaine has reportedly been discovered in the toilets nearest Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

    It comes amid growing concerns about the use of drugs, such as cocaine, and other illegal substances in parliament.

    The news also comes after Johnson discussed his new plans to crack down on drug use and distribution across the UK, set to ‘make an example’ out of middle-class offenders.

    As reported by The Times, evidence of cocaine was identified in the toilets nearest Johnson and Home Secretary Priti Patel, as well as the disabled bathroom on the shadow cabinet corridor in Norman Shaw North and the accessible toilet beside the office of Nick Thomas-Symonds, the former shadow home secretary.

    A total of 12 locations across Westminster were tested with detection wipes – all but one revealed evidence of cocaine use, including places restricted to those with parliamentary passes, according to the report. Two drug dealers have also been arrested on or around the parliamentary estate over the past year, as well as 13 people being detained for drug possession.

    Sir Lindsay Hoyle has pledged to investigate the drug culture in Westminster, with other MPs calling for the possible use of sniffer dogs.

    ‘The House of Commons has a long history of using sniffer dogs to detect explosives. It may be that we now need to broaden the range of sniffer dogs… to include those which can detect drugs,’ Tory MP Charles Walker said.

    One source also claimed to the publication, ‘I have seen an MP openly snorting cocaine at a party. There were journalists present and I warned them that what they were doing was extremely dangerous and they could be exposed but they seemed to get off on the power trip.’

    […]A similar test in 2019, reported in Vice, also found traces of cocaine in the Norman Shaw North building.

    Hoyle offered an olive branch to drug user MPs, saying parliament provides “extensive support services for any staff or members who may need help with drug misuse, and I would encourage anyone struggling with issues to take up such help.” At the same time, he said those who choose to “flout the law and bring the institution into disrepute” would face serious sanctions.

    Conservative MP Charles Walker said the House of Commons had a “long history of using sniffer dogs to detect explosives” and said their range could be broadened to detect drugs.

    Johnson has admitted to trying cocaine “at a party”. He told Piers Morgan that he tried it at university but that it achieved “no pharmacological, psycho tropical or any other effect on me whatsoever”. He also admitted to having had “many spliffs” (cannabis joints) prior to studying at university, describing it as “jolly nice”.

    The report comes amid a new crackdown on illegal drug use in the UK, with Johnson himself suggesting that drug users could have their passports and driving licenses taken away. Later this week, Johnson is expected to launch a 10-year plan to tackle illegal drug-related crime.

  10. CBC – Would national vaccine mandates work in Canada? Experts aren’t sure

    Many reasons for vaccine hesitancy require many solutions, not sledgehammer approach, say experts

    With European states turning to mandatory national vaccination regimes to deal with record COVID-19 infections, experts in Canada say that while science and the law may back the Liberal government if it chose to follow suit, it might not be the panacea the public is hoping for.

    There are significant challenges to imposing a national mandatory vaccination program for all Canadians, the first of which is the age-old jurisdictional battle between the federal government and the provinces.

    Under the Constitution, the provinces are responsible for delivering health care, and a vaccine mandate would fall under that remit. If the federal government wanted to take over that responsibility, it would have to either use the Emergencies Act or pass legislation giving it the authority to act.

    “To do that, all hell would break loose from the provinces,” Michael Behiels, a constitutional law expert at the University of Ottawa, told CBC News. “It’s theoretically possible, but this would go to court immediately, and they would have to prove that the crisis is in fact a national crisis.”

    Behiels said a federal government taking this route would likely win any challenge in court, providing it could prove that the rate of infections, the death rate and ongoing mutations were creating a threat only a national response could mitigate.

    Even in victory, he said, the move would likely create a backlash among provincial governments that see the step as unnecessary at this stage of the pandemic.

    “Up until this moment in Canada, there has not really been a need to consider it,” Dr. Allison McGeer, an infectious disease specialist at Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital, told CBC News.

    “We’re not back to normal, but we’re getting there — and there’s no guarantee that we’ll be right back to normal even if everybody is vaccinated because there are breakthrough infections,” said McGeer, who is also a professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto.

    Context is everything
    Behiels said a national vaccine mandate could not only create bad blood between the unvaccinated and the federal government but also between the provinces and Ottawa that could undermine the vaccination effort.

    If the situation were different, he said, with a much higher death rate or a more aggressive infection rate, making that move might be easy and the provinces might even ask for the intervention if the situation got bad enough. But experts are not sure Canada has reached that point just yet.

    European countries such as Austria and Greece appear to believe they have, and they’re moving in the direction of national vaccine mandates because they are seeing infection rates three times higher than at any other time during the pandemic, and vaccination programs have stalled.

    In January, Greeks over the age of 60 who are not yet vaccinated will be subject to a monthly fine of 100 euros ($140 Cdn). Slovakia is looking at taking the opposite route and offering 600 euros ($844) to encourage people to get their shots.

    Austria, with one of the lower vaccination rates in the European Union, is looking at plans that, if implemented, would fine unvaccinated Austrians more than 7,000 euros ($9,880). There are already signs that enforcing that mandate will be a challenge; late last month some 40,000 protesters turned up in Vienna to challenge the new rules.

    Only 67 per cent of the EU’s population has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to Our World in Data, while in Canada, 76 per cent of the population is fully vaccinated. Greece sits at 64 per cent, while Austria’s population is only 66 per cent fully vaccinated.

    Germany isn’t much better at 68 per cent, and countries such as Hungary have some of the lowest vaccination rates in Europe at just 61 per cent.

    Both Germany and Hungary are experiencing record infection rates, and both are turning to strict national policies to try to turn the tide. For now, Germany is only talking about mandatory vaccination. Hungary, however, is allowing companies to impose the policy on employees and compel any unvaccinated staff to take unpaid leave until they get immunized.

    In Canada, by comparison, all passengers travelling on planes and trains must be fully vaccinated, as must the staff working in those sectors. All federal employees must also be fully vaccinated.

    Reasons for hesitancy

    McGeer and other infectious disease physicians, such as Dr. Isaac Bogoch of the University of Toronto and Dr. Gerald Evans, chair of the division of infectious diseases at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., all agree that the goal some European states are pursuing — a fully vaccinated population — is a worthy one.

    But they also agree that imposing mandatory vaccination regimes across the population might cause an uproar, stress the goodwill between Canadians and their government and, in the end, not deliver the desired results.

    “Say it works and you actually get huge numbers of people now being vaccinated because of the imposition of fines or restrictions. The fact of the matter is that it would help, it would have an impact,” Evans said.

    “If we had 95 to almost 100 per cent of the population vaccinated, this virus would have one devil of a time trying to maintain itself in the environment.”

    Bogoch agreed with the sentiment that more vaccinations are necessary, but he remains unsure that a mandatory vaccine regime would have the desired effect.

    “There are multiple reasons why people remain unvaccinated, and understanding those reasons and tailoring your response to those reasons is usually a more effective approach so you don’t further alienate people in an already polarized world,” he said.

    Bogoch says there are typically four types of unvaccinated Canadians. The first two are people who intend to get vaccinated but have not gotten around to it yet and people who work multiple jobs or are single parents and have not had the time or opportunity to get vaccinated. Bogoch says these groups likely wouldn’t be put off by a vaccine mandate.

    But the other two — people with lingering concerns and anxieties and people who have been influenced by misinformation campaigns — might be pushed further away from vaccination by a mandate, he says

    One size does not fit all
    Within those groups, experts say, there are subgroups turned off of vaccination for different reasons.

    “People who are white, rich, highly educated and born in Canada have much more faith in the public health system and have much more willingness to believe their government, so we get higher vaccination rates,” McGeer said.

    “Racialized communities who already are at strikingly higher risk of being infected with COVID are the very people who have more trouble in deciding to get vaccinated and with good reason.”

    She added, “Vaccine mandates are systemically inequitable, and you can work to mitigate it, but you can’t fix it.”

    Bogoch says the best way to increase vaccination rates is to understand why each group won’t get vaccinated and then try to meet them on their ground: If they can’t get to a vaccination clinic because they are too busy, use mobile clinics, he says. If they still have lingering questions, sit them down with health professionals and try to answer their questions. If they have been influenced by misinformation, try to combat those false narratives. But don’t, Bogoch says, try to motivate everyone with the same approach.

    “There is not a one-size fits all solution to this problem,” he said.


    CBC – Behind a community’s efforts to turn around their high COVID-19 rates

    ….. the Canadian Muslim COVID-19 Task Force,

    • Would anyone in Canada consider getting the vaccine if they saw the real VARES number of injuries?

      IF the factor is 41:

      Adverse Reactions 927,740 x41 = 37,937,340

      Deaths 19,532 x 41 = 800,812

      Serious Injuries 146,720 x 41 = 6,015,520 people with paralysis, blood clots, Bell’s Palsy, myocarditis, pericarditis, heart attacks, skin rashes – some so severe the bottom of their feet are blistered and they cannot walk, Guillain Barre Syndrome, MS, arthritis, Pots disease………

      Methinks if the truth were ever known, more people have had their lives ended or ruined from the injections, but, hey, Gates and friends have made billions.

      • Imagine if you added in the numbers of people who were killed by Medazolam, Remdesivir, and morphine. There wouldn’t be anyone left for Covid to have killed.

  11. zero hedge – COVID Outbreak On US Cruise Ship Despite Fully Vaxxed Passengers

    Despite every cruise line requiring passengers and crew to be fully vaccinated before boarding, a cruise ship returning from a sail across the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea with thousands of passengers onboard detected an outbreak of COVID-19, according to AP News.

    Norwegian Breakaway, owned by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd, departed from the Port of New Orleans on Nov. 28 and sailed to Belize, Honduras, and Mexico, with more than 3,000 people on board.

    Ahead of returning to its homeport in New Orleans, the cruise line detected ten COVID infections among its guest and crew. Those who were infected were fully vaccinated and were forced into quarantine.



    According to the vessel-tracking website CruiseMapper, Norwegian Breakaway docked in New Orleans early Sunday morning. All passengers and crew will be subjected to a COVID test before exiting the ship.

    Despite a 100% vaccination rate on the vessel, there was still an outbreak of COVID, suggesting that vaccine effectiveness is severely waning.

    A recent study of the three primary COVID vaccines showed a ‘dramatic’ drop in efficacy over six months. So as cruise ship operators begin hitting the high seas with only fully vaxxed passengers and crews that have waning defenses against the virus, one would suspect additional outbreaks on ships as new infections surge across the US.

    Even in Europe, where vaccine passport schemes and high vaccination rates are highly enforced, countries are experiencing a surge in infections.

    So what are cruise ship operators going to do now? Only allow passengers and crew who are not just fully vaccinated but have their booster shots?
