  1. German doctor jailed for illegally issuing mask exemptions

    BERLIN (AP) — A German doctor ( Dr Monika Jiang ) was sentenced late Monday to two years and nine months in prison for illegally issuing more than 4,000 people with exemptions from wearing masks during the coronavirus pandemic.

    A regional court in the southwestern town of Weinheim confirmed Tuesday that the doctor was convicted of “issuing incorrect health certificates” to people from across Germany, most of whom she had never met or examined.

    In addition to the prison sentence she was handed a three-year work ban and ordered to pay 28,000 euros ($29,550), the sum she had received for issuing the medical certificates. Her office assistant was fined 2,700 euros.

    “The process is more reminiscent of a sale of certificates than a medical procedure,” the court said in a statement. It noted that she was not faulted for providing certificates to her existing patients.

    During the trial the defendant had argued that wearing masks was harmful to people’s health.

    The doctor’s lawyer intends to appeal the verdict, public broadcaster SWR reported.

    Dozens of supporters gathered outside the court in Weinheim, north of Heidelberg, to protest against the verdict and Germany’s pandemic restrictions.

    Germany ended requirements to wear masks in many indoor settings last year, though they are still compulsory on long-distance trains, in doctors’ practices, hospitals, nursing homes and on some regional public transport.

      • Forbes – SEPTEMBER 2021 – CDC’s Six-Foot Social Distancing Rule Was ‘Arbitrary’, Says Former FDA Commissioner

        One of former President Trump’s commissioners of the Food and Drug Administration, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, told CBS’ Face the Nation Sunday the six-foot social distancing rule created to slow the spread of the coronavirus was “arbitrary” and has decreased confidence in the pandemic response.

        KEY FACTS

        The six-foot rule, Gottlieb said, was a compromise between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which had recommended 10 feet, and an unnamed political appointee in the Trump administration who called 10 feet “inoperable.”

        Both the 10-foot and six-foot recommendations were unfounded, said Gottlieb, and show “the lack of rigor” in how the CDC made public health recommendations.

        Many people assume the rule traces to “some old studies” on the flu, which found droplets won’t travel further than six feet, Gottlieb said—though research has since shown that Covid-19 can be spread through aerosols, which have the potential to travel many times further than droplets.

        Gottlieb, who left the FDA in 2019 before the pandemic, was not in office for the Trump administration’s Covid-19 response.


        The six-foot rule was “probably the single costliest recommendation that [the] CDC made,” Gottlieb said, because “the whole thing feels arbitrary and not science based,” which lowers public confidence.


        Gottlieb said the CDC is a “high-science organization” that wasn’t ready for the logistical challenges of responding to a pandemic. He criticized the agency for waiting until March 2021 to halve its recommended distance between children in school to three feet because one of the studies that the agency cited had finished collecting data in autumn 2020. “If they had that study result in the fall,” he asked, “why didn’t they change the advice in the fall?”


        Asked by host Margaret Brennan which governors have handled the pandemic worst, Gottlieb mentioned South Dakota, whose governor, Kristi Noem, has portrayed her state as a refuge from onerous public health restrictions. Her failure to impose restrictions and apply the lessons learned by states hit earlier by the virus, Gottlieb suggested, has resulted in South Dakota having one of the highest per-capita death rates from Covid-19. Gottlieb also criticized Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ refusal to promote masking and vaccination. Both governors are believed to be potential 2024 Republican challengers to President Joe Biden.

    • JAN 03 2023 – DAILY MAIL – Return of the MASKS: Health chiefs urge people to wear face coverings and say anyone feeling ill should ‘stay at home’ in echo of pandemic era – as medics claim the NHS is under more pressure than at the height of Covid

      Youngsters who are ill and have a high temperature should stay at home
      The move will help minimise the spread of Covid, flu and scarlet fever
      Millions of pupils are set to return to classrooms this week after the holidays

      Unwell adults should stay at home and wear a mask if they have to go outside, health chiefs said today amid warnings the NHS is facing more pressure than it did during the peak of the pandemic.

      The advice, issued by the UK Health Security Agency, also urges parents to keep their child out of school or nursery if they are ill and have a high temperature — classed as 38C or more.

      The actions will help minimise the spread of Covid, flu and scarlet fever which are ‘circulating at high levels’ and are ‘likely’ to keep rising in the coming weeks, it said.

      It comes amid stark warnings that the delays for care caused by the NHS crisis are killing 500 patients every week, with top doctors telling Britons that the situation is ‘much worse’ than the darkest days of the Covid pandemic.

    • Dr. John Campbell -China, mass infections

      Anton 35 minutes ago

      I'm in a major city in China. I'd say 70%+ of the people I know and work with had Covid in the last 3 weeks. I also teach students and a large amount of them had Covid but I don't know the percentage, definitely far higher than 30% in one class but, not everyone had mentioned they'd had it, so it could easily be 50% or higher.

      I have to say, I am not seeing the hospitals be overrun. I was in a hospital 3 weeks ago, there was absolutely no sign whatsoever of crowding. It's a large hospital. I was just there to get 2 warts removed as they don't sell proper wart remover in the pharmacists here. I go back tomorrow, and there was absolutely no problem getting an appointment, or getting through on the phone. The calls were answered in Chinese and then next by an english speaker, immediately. They didn't even mention any issues.

      I also had covid. I got symptoms first 2 weeks ago. I am completely over it. The worst symptom was a very sore throat for about 2.5 days. Paracetamol basically got rid of the pain. I had some other symptoms like mild pressure in my head, very mild temperature, and mostly, tiredness. Tiredness lasted about 8 days and was by far the biggest symptom. I also lost my appetite. I haven't had any vaccines.

      I'm definitely completely over it now, it's been 2 weeks. I have been doing stuff for the last 5 days, such as small amounts of exercise, and going out to various events.

      Oh, one last thing. I do not know anyone dying of Covid. I have not heard it from my friends or their families. I have not seen anyone dying in my housing compound, of about 10,000 people. I just don't see it anywhere or hear about it. I do not really know anyone over 80 though.

    • the gateway pundit – Another FAKE FACT-CHECKER Identified – Politifact’s Jeff Cercone “Fact-Checks” on COVID Despite Zero Credentials

      Another fake “fact-checker” has been identified. Politifact’s Jeff Cercone joins the army of the biased and unqualified in telling us what the truth is and what it is not.

      The “fact-checker” scheme invented by the far-left is a means to discredit the truth. Fake “fact-checkers” are used to proclaim that the truth is a lie. This is an effort to keep the American people in the dark about the reality of the world around them.

      The left feels that if they discredit the truth overwhelmingly, then Americans will begin to believe that boys are girls, kids should be taught porn in grade schools, there is global warming, and Joe Biden won the 2020 Election.

      The far left uses fact-checkers to support their censorship of the truth. Sites like Facebook use these sites to discredit conservative sites like TGP based on bogus and faulty information. (TGP has been proven right time and again which is why TGP is a large website today.)

      We first looked at Snopes, for example, and found that this fake fact-checker had the morals of a mobster. The founder of Snopes embezzled money from his first wife to pay for hookers during his divorce. This is who the left believes is a purveyor of truth.

      We also found a fake fact-checker used to discredit doctors in California, attacking two doctors in California who believed that COVID had the mortality of the flu and suggested early on that only the sick and immuno-compromised individuals must be quarantined, not healthy people.

      We uncovered that this fake fact-checker had ties to China, Bill Gates, and George Soros and she wasn’t close to being a doctor.

      TGP has been attacked over and over for sharing the truth. The fake fact-checkers don’t have problems with our facts (facts are facts), they have problems with our messages. We are materially always proven right.

      We’ve learned recently that this fake fact-checking operation is being funded by the government and therefore essentially US taxpayers.

      This weekend another fake fact-checker was identified as the purveyor of truth related to COVID. Jeff Cercone from Politifact has no credentials in the medical area. None. His career has been reporting for tiny publications where he no doubt faithfully pushed garbage far-left talking points.

      In a series of tweets, Politifact’s expert fact-checker was identified as another unqualified quack. (Hat tip to Twitchy.)

      Texas Lindsay on Twitter is very kind when she refers to Politifact’s Jeff Cercone – an unqualified fake fact-checker for Politifact.

      Jeff is a fake fact-checker and “wordsmith” who is one of many in an “epidemic of ‘False Fact-Checking Prophets’.

    Catholic Vote reported:

    At least 78 pregnancy resource centers and offices of pro-life groups have been attacked and vandalized since a draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade was leaked in early May. Pro-abortion domestic terrorists have claimed responsibility, and delivered on their promise of a “summer of rage“. The attacks have continued into the fall
    The pregnancy resource centers, which provide free medical and financial support to pregnant and new mothers, have been spray-painted with pro-abortion and anarchist messages and symbols. Several have been set on fire. Other pro-life groups which advocate for the right to life have also had their offices vandalized.

  6. SELLIN: Is China’s Military Making COVID-19 Variants?

    Is China’s military making COVID-19 variants?

    Guest post by Lawrence Sellin, Li-Meng Yan and Ding-Gang Wang

    The once prestigious, but now politically-contaminated science journal Nature, lauded Yunlong Cao as one of its top 10 scientists, “who helped shape science in 2022.”

    Nature described Yunlong Cao as a “COVID predictor,” whose ”rich characterizations of emerging variants have allowed researchers to keep step with SARS-CoV-2 as it evolves,” particularly mutations related to evading or escaping the human immune response.

    But is it the “prediction” or the “designing” of variants?

    Yunlong Cao’s academic career provides an excellent example of how China uses “scientific chain migration” to access American knowledge, skills, technologies and U.S. government funding, which is fed back into China’s research and development programs, including those of the People’s Liberation Army.

    Begun in the 1980s, scientific chain migration has involved successive waves of Chinese Communist Party and People’s Liberation Army scientists coming to the U.S. for training, some of whom remain, obtaining positions at American universities and research centers, becoming permanent residents or even U.S. citizens and then establishing themselves as “anchors” for additional waves of Chinese scientists to be trained in the U.S.

    Yunlong Cao received his Ph.D. in June 2019 from Harvard University supervised by Professor Xiaoliang Sunney Xie.

    Xiaoliang Sunney Xie earned a B.S. degree in chemistry from Peking University in 1984, and his Ph.D. in physical chemistry in 1990 from the University of California, San Diego. After a career at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, he became the first tenured professor at Harvard University among Chinese migrants, who came to the U.S. during the 1980s.

    Xie became a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the U.S. National Academy of Medicine and the U.S. Academy of Arts and Sciences.

    Xiaoliang Sunney Xie received about $25 million in research funding from the U.S. National Institutes of Health, a significant amount of that money being used to train Chinese students and conduct experiments with scientists in China.

    Xie returned to China in November 2018 to become Professor and Dean of Sciences at Peking University.

    Yunlong Cao joined his mentor at Peking University and both are co-founders of Beijing Danzhong Biopharmaceutical Company, which conducts antibody research and development in competition with American companies.

    Yunlong Cao is the son of People’s Liberation Army Major General Xuetao Cao, who was a student of Tianxing Ye, one of the founding scientists of China’s biowarfare program.

    Xuetao Cao has published extensively with other People’s Liberation Army scientists on the immune response to viral infections, including the COVID-19 virus.

    In 2019, Xuetao Cao was involved in a controversy related to the falsification of data.

    Immediately upon returning to China, both Yunlong Cao and his mentor Xiaoliang Sunney Xie began collaborating with People’s Liberation Army scientists studying the immune response to the COVID-19 virus, including scientists believed to be highly-placed in China’s biowarfare program, such as Chengfeng Qin and Chuan Qin.

    Internationally-respected physician and scientist Dr. Steven Quay has expressed his alarm regarding the apparent biowarfare direction of immune response experiments now being conducted in China.

    Mutation and immune evasion or escape of the COVID-19 Omicron variants would not necessarily be a concern except for the disturbing reports of significantly increased transmissibility and lethality of the newly appearing variants in China, an unexpected phenomenon in the absence of contributing factors.

    Given the overwhelming evidence that the COVID-19 virus was created in a Chinese laboratory with links to China’s biowarfare program, subsequent synthesis of new variants supervised by the People’s Liberation Army would not be an illogical assumption.

    At a minimum, the world should be alert to that possibility.

Such demands have been heard on various cable networks for weeks without addressing the constitutional barriers to denying a duly elected member from taking a seat. In my view, Santos could prevail in a court fight over being seated if he is barred due to lying about his credentials or background. That does not excuse his conduct.

    The Year of Pushing Back
    Use your constitutional free-speech rights while you still have them. When the next holiday season rolls around, check to see if things got any better.
    By Lloyd Billingsley

    January 3, 2023
    “Ithink it’s gonna get better by the holidays.”

    That was Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg in September, addressing the raft of airline flight cancellations. When the holidays came, it didn’t get better. In fact, as the executioner Boris said in Blazing Saddles, “It’s been utter chaos down here.”

    Flights canceled, people left stranded, the whole nine yards, but not for Pete Buttigieg. As it emerged, the transportation secretary had taken at least 18 trips on private jets, funded by taxpayers, including a trip to Montreal, Canada, to receive an award.

    Those still camping out in airports might recall that during a crippling supply-chain crisis, Buttigieg was off on a two-month “maternity leave,” which he claimed was “not a vacation.” The secretary also proclaimed that “supply, demand, and the pandemic” were the main forces behind the supply chain bottlenecks. They weren’t.

    According to the secretary, “Americans have more money in their pockets compared to a year ago. Where they used to maybe spend it on going to shows or travel, they’ve been more likely to spend it on things, which is why actually we have a record number of goods coming through our ports.” We didn’t.

    Report Ad
    As embattled Americans might recall, Transportation Secretary Buttigieg has a sanctimonious side. On the other hand, in a House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee hearing last year, Buttigieg proclaimed, “the more pain we are all experiencing from the high price of gas, ?the more benefit there is for those who can access electric vehicles.”

    By this standard, all those people stranded in airports is a good thing—for people who can access private jets, funded by those same taxpayers. So the secretary has a sadistic side, and that Anthony Perkins look should have given it away. Pete Buttigieg failed to become president, so the Biden Junta deploys him to jack up the misery index and taunt the people. In that task, the secretary faces strong competition.

    Report Ad
    Consider Sam Brinton, the former deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy at the Department of Energy. Like Michael Palin’s lumberjack in the famous Monty Python sketch, Brinton likes to put on women’s clothing and pose for the cameras.

    It’s a good bet that a sizable fraction of Brinton’s wardrobe is from the suitcases he ripped off at airports. That caused him to lose his job, but the big question is how this poseur ever got the job in the first place.

    According to the Department of Energy, access to “special nuclear material” requires evaluation of “information about an individual’s background to determine their judgment, reliability, and honesty.” The Office of Personnel Management and the FBI conduct background investigations such as “a fingerprint check, credit search, records check, and interviews with individuals to verify the applicant’s character, loyalty, current and past residences, employment, and education.”

    This clown most likely got the post because he’s one of those Dave Chappelle calls the “alphabet people,” now a privileged, protected class. That is doubtless the case with four-star “Admiral” Rachel Levine, assistant secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. It has emerged that Levine has been urging Big Tech companies to censor “misinformation” about “gender-affirming care,” which Levine believes is of “positive value” and “not in medical or scientific dispute.”

    Actually, irreversible mutilation of the human body is not a good thing, especially for children and adolescents. They seem to be the admiral’s target-rich environment. Like Dr. Anthony Fauci, Admiral Levine is a physician who first does harm and has no use for informed consent. If you don’t address Admiral Levine as a woman, the Assistant HHS boss wants you to lose your job.

    Admiral Levine recalls Dr. Robert Elliot (Michael Caine) in “Dressed to Kill,” the shrink who dresses in women’s clothes and carves up Kate Miller (Angie Dickinson) with a straight razor. Put dark glasses on Levine and the resemblance would be more startling—except for the uniform.

    Levine recalls Jay Leno’s rant against the circus, with all those “diseased animals and hermaphrodite clowns throwing anthrax spores at the children.” For Rod Dreher, Levine smacks of fascism, and the American Conservative editor is on to something. The Biden Junta does represent fascism of a special brand.

    The underlying ethos is the Dictatorship of the Subjunctive Mood (DSM), a permanent crusade against reality. Chromosomes, hormones, bone structure, and so forth confirm that, in terms of science, the admiral and the luggage thief are both men. Levine claims to be a woman because he thinks he is, and everybody must fall in line—or else. If a parent challenges the admiral, say, at a school board meeting, she becomes a domestic terrorist on the FBI’s Most Wanted List.

    Pete Buttigieg thinks airline travel and the supply chain are great, because he says they are. That’s the DSM in action, a totalitarian tutorial. The suffering of the people advances the agenda of the Junta, now in full triumphalist mode. Should that be doubted, review Joe Biden’s September 1 hate speech, like something staged by Leni Riefenstahl.

  11. Why Crime Will Explode In 2023
    A new law is being touted as “the most dangerous law in America.”
    January 3, 2023 by Kevin McCullough 15 Comments

    If you reward criminals with fewer consequences, crime grows exponentially.

    So mark January 1st, 2024 on the calendar.

    Today January 1st 2023, a new law goes into effect. The law will leave a major impact on the state of Illinois and the city of Chicago.

    In some circles it is being touted as “the most dangerous law in America.” All for good reason.

    The new law closely mirrors criminal “reforms” that have now been in effect for two years here in New York. In short it seeks to “right the wrongs” of “unfair” law enforcement and to press its thumb on the side of those previously disenfranchised.

    This is mostly just a way to say that the woke left is attempting to bring down effective law enforcement in another big state, create chaos, and further allow that environment of anarchy to bring about their culturally marxist ideals.

    We’ve seen the pattern across the nation. Change enforcement of criminal codes so that actions that once were considered serious crimes to simple misdemeanors, refuse to prosecute, let criminals roam freely to terrorize once again.

    In other words if you can’t get cities to defund the police directly, create such a difficult job for them that they more or less quit doing the job they do best: stopping crime and protecting citizens.

    And while they’ve been very unsuccessful in getting actual police departments to lose funding, they have been moderately effective at installing DA’s who just refuse to enforce the laws as written.

    And now a couple of states they’ve been most effective at getting “criminal reforms” passed and laws changed so that criminals en masse don’t have a healthy fear of committing crime.

    New York led the way on this with its “bail reform” law that was passed by touting how fair it was to those who had been prejudiced by the system. Now a couple of years into it being law, New York is a crime ridden tenement smelling of weed, with blind assaults being committed on innocent bystanders, and rotating doors at the precinct booking offices where some criminals literally are being charged multiple times per day and are back out on the street before the arresting officer has finished their paperwork.

    Chicago is already a far more dangerous city prior to the new law taking effect. Large swaths of its south side and even spilling into some of the southern suburbs there are places too dangerous to get lost in. Chicago experiences sometimes as many shootings in a single weekend as New York City would have in half a year under previous administrations.

    The effectiveness of the NYPD has been the saving grace for NYC to have not drifted further into danger. Even so they are shedding personnel with more early retirements, burnout, and sadly to murder and suicide of police than they have in a generation.

    Even though NYC is far off the mark of its all time worst years with more than 2000 murders per year, there’s still a reason(s) for why the rate is double or triple it’s safer years on record.

    All Illinois needed to do was to observe the criminal reform law’s impact on New York, and they should have run for the hills.

    Instead the woke, racially biased, progressive power mongers in Chicago city hall, and the Governor’s mansion pushed a worse version onto an already more dysfunctional state.

    Proving again that leftism destroys and makes nearly everything it touches worse.

    Don’t believe me?

    The new law is so bad that a criminal under house arrest literally must be absent from his confined “home” for more than 48 hours before the police can do anything to find, and remand him into custody.

    Do you know how far a hardened criminal can go in 48 hours?

    Progressives in other states and cities — particularly blue ones — are readying efforts to implement similar measures.

    One Illinois sheriff’s department officer observed that if police won’t deal with the crime, citizens will be forced to.

    Given the amount of free flowing guns that are already in the hands of gang members that will now hunt enemies down—citizens will be forced to.

    I pray I’m proven wrong.
