Study: Fully vaccinated healthcare workers carry 251 times viral load, pose threat to unvaccinated patients, co-workers

A preprint paper by the prestigious Oxford University Clinical Research Group, published Aug. 10 in The Lancet, found vaccinated individuals carry 251 times the load of COVID-19 viruses in their nostrils compared to the unvaccinated.

A groundbreaking preprint paper by the prestigious Oxford University Clinical Research Group, published Aug. 10 in The Lancet, includes alarming findings devastating to the COVID vaccine rollout.

The study found vaccinated individuals carry 251 times the load of COVID-19 viruses in their nostrils compared to the unvaccinated.

While moderating the symptoms of infection, the jab allows vaccinated individuals to carry unusually high viral loads without becoming ill at first, potentially transforming them into presymptomatic superspreaders.

This phenomenon may be the source of the shocking post-vaccination surges in heavily vaccinated populations globally.

Comment: The sad and twisted irony of all this is how the greater numbers of those with Covid will be used as "justification" to aggressively roll out an even greater number shots...

BBC presenter Lisa Shaw, 44, died of brain hemorrhage caused by AstraZeneca injection, coroner inquest finds

Lisa Shaw

BBC radio presenter Lisa Shaw (pictured above), 44, died at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in the city just over three weeks after her first dose of the vaccine, heard coroner Karen Dilks
BBC presenter Lisa Shaw died due to complications from the AstraZeneca vaccine, a coroner concluded today in what is believed to be the first time a Covid jab has officially been ruled the underlying cause of death in the UK.

Comment: Considering the official incidence risk this shows that deaths caused by vaccines are being massively underreported. The manufactured crisis is quite clearly corrupting science.

The otherwise healthy 44-year-old, who worked for BBC Radio Newcastle, died in May after developing headaches after getting her first dose of the British-made vaccine.

Newcastle coroner Karen Dilks heard Ms Shaw suffered from blood clots in her brain which caused a deadly stroke. She was admitted to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle after complaining of headaches.

The inquest, which lasted less than an hour, heard that the condition linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine was extremely rare.

'Killing for the sake of killing': Disillusioned US drone pilots leak footage of air strikes against unarmed Afghans, media says

American drone pilots have leaked video of "punitive" and "nihilistic" strikes in Afghanistan in 2019 that led to the killing of civilians, including at least one child, as the US looked for an exit strategy in the two-decade war.

The footage, published on Tuesday as part of an investigation by military news outlet Connecting Vets, reportedly reveals how successive US administrations and defense strategists relaxed the rules of engagement in Afghanistan - as part of a policy to pressure the Taliban to the negotiating table.

However, drone operators interviewed by the outlet claimed the loosened rules around air strikes served "no point" and did not "make a difference" - with one pilot stating that it was "killing for the sake of killing." The strikes also reportedly killed far more civilians than the Pentagon has admitted.


Mark Carney and the strategic reality of the collapsing Trans-Atlantic system

Mark Carney

UN Special Envoy on Climate Action Mark Carney
The uncomfortable fact which too many commentators tend to run away from out of fear, ignorance or intellectual dishonesty, is that the world financial system is sitting on the verge of a global financial meltdown of a $1.2 quadrillion derivatives time bomb which former Bank of England Governor Mervyn King stated in September 2019 is on the verge of "financial Armageddon". This grim reality was known long before the COVID pandemic was launched during October 2019's Event 201.

It is this oncoming financial meltdown that underlies the war drive against China which certain western geopoliticans fear will shape the new system which they sought to control. France's Bruno Lemaire laid out this fear in the most candid way in July 2019 when he said "unless we are able to reinvent Bretton Woods, The New Silk Roads might become the new world order".

So what role does Canada play in this and how does this affect the shakeup in the current Canadian government now moving into a snap election on September 20, 2021? Why would Chrystia Freeland, a Rhodes Scholar more proficient in regime change than banking, be given the reigns of Canada's economic order during these trying times?

Ex-NSA head cheers for sending 'unvaxxed MAGA' Americans to Afghanistan, compares Trump supporters to Taliban

Former CIA and NSA head Michael Hayden has applauded treating fans of ex-president Donald Trump as subhuman - or at least second-class citizens, cheering a suggestion they be thrown out of the country and compared to the Taliban.

On Sunday, Hayden retweeted a post suggesting sending "MAGA-wearing unvaxxed" Americans to Afghanistan rather than sending the evacuation planes "back empty" after they deposited those fleeing the Taliban elsewhere, calling it a "good idea."


Troll of the century: Taliban special forces unit dons discarded US military gear to mock famous WWII photo

Iwo Jima Taliban
An elite Taliban fighting unit known as the Badri 313 Battalion has been spreading propaganda while wearing captured American military gear and posted one photo appearing to mock the iconic World War II photo, Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima.

It is believed that they came across the gear which used to belong to American soldiers and US allies while going on patrols in the captured city of Kabul. The unit has also been seen driving around in armored Humvees.

The Taliban are also reportedly searching "door to door" for US-involved collaborators and groups at this time. They are also reportedly negotiating with UNICEF on subjects such as women's rights to education.

Water, water everywhere: Henri gives New York City rainiest hour in recorded history before expected landfall

Hurricane Henri is expected to make landfall in New York as a category 1 hurricane.

Hurricane Henri is expected to make landfall in New York as a category 1 hurricane.
The first impacts of Henri dropped record-breaking rainfall, giving New York City its wettest day in seven years

Henri had already delivered record-breaking rain totals and widespread flooding hours before its projected landfall Sunday afternoon. Heavy rain overwhelmed storm drains and drivers plowed through foot-deep water in a few spots Saturday night in New York City and New Jersey.

Now a tropical storm, Henri is still projected to bring another three to six inches of rainfall Sunday as the system moves over Long Island and into New England.

Flash flood warnings were issued beginning Saturday night and into Sunday morning throughout the five boroughs and northern New Jersey.

Ten people are dead and approximately 40 people are missing in Humphreys County after severe flooding rocked the community Saturday.

Crews were going house to house in search of the missing people late Saturday, Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis told The Tennessean. Davis said the flooding event is the worst he has seen in his 28 years with the department.

Power outages and a lack cell phone service has compounded the problems. Portable units will be brought in to help establish communication lines, Davis said.

Rural roads and highways throughout Humphreys County were washed away Saturday.

The Tennessee National Guard was deployed to the county to assist residents there after up to 12 inches of rain fell in parts of Middle Tennessee on Saturday and caused catastrophic flooding.

More than 15 inches fell in Humphreys County, prompting water rescues, flooding roadways and briefly closing a large section of Interstate 40. The Piney River also shattered record water levels, the National Weather Service Nashville reported.


Something is wrong with the President

President Joe Biden speaks in the East Room at the White House in Washington, D.C., August 11, 2021.
On the menu today: The transcript of President Joe Biden's interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos dropped, and the president's incoherence, insistence that he was incorrectly briefed, denial that he was warned by his military advisers, and oddly low profile in the past week raise troubling questions about his ability to perform his duties.

What's Going On with President Biden?

After making no public appearances for four days — during a major foreign crisis — President Biden read a 20-minute speech off a teleprompter on Monday afternoon and took no questions. He immediately returned to Camp David. He had no events on his schedule Tuesday. On Wednesday, he gave another 20-minute speech about vaccine boosters off a teleprompter from Camp David, and again took no questions. Also on Wednesday, the president sat for an on-camera interview with George Stephanopoulos that did not go well. According to the White House public records, Biden has had two phone conversations with foreign leaders in the past ten days — one with Boris Johnson and one with Angela Merkel.

Afghanistan: The End of the Occupation and the Use of Feminism as Propaganda

A lot of nonsense about Afghanistan is being written in Britain and the United States. Most of this nonsense hides a number of important truths.

First, the Taliban have defeated the United States.

Second, the Taliban have won because they have more popular support.

Third, this is not because most Afghans love the Taliban. It is because the American occupation has been unbearably cruel and corrupt.

Fourth, the War on Terror has also been politically defeated in the United States. The majority of Americans are now in favor of withdrawal from Afghanistan and against any more foreign wars.

Fifth, this is a turning point in world history. The greatest military power in the world has been defeated by the people of a small, desperately poor country. This will weaken the power of the American empire all over the world.

Sixth, the rhetoric of saving Afghan women has been widely used to justify the occupation, and many feminists in Afghanistan have chosen the side of the occupation. The result is a tragedy for feminism.

This article explains these points. Because this a short piece, we assert more than we prove. But we have written a great deal about gender, politics and war in Afghanistan since we did fieldwork there as anthropologists almost fifty years ago. We give links to much of this work at the end of this article, so you can explore our arguments in more detail.[1]
