Moderna needs US & EU to grant emergency authorization to experimental Covid-19 vaccine

Moderna Inc. said Monday it was asking U.S. and European regulators to allow emergency use of its COVID-19 vaccine as new study results confirm the shots offer strong protection — intensifying the race to begin limited vaccinations as the coronavirus rampage worsens.

Comment: Despite AP's baseless fearmongering, Covid-19 is actually harmless for the vast majority, and isn't even in the top 10 list of health concerns around the world.

Multiple vaccine candidates must succeed for the world to stamp out the pandemic, which has been on the upswing in the U.S. and Europe. U.S. hospitals have been stretched to the limit as the nation has seen more than 160,000 new cases per day and more than 1,400 daily deaths. Since first emerging nearly a year ago in China, the virus has killed more than 1.4 million people worldwide.

Moderna is just behind Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech in seeking to begin vaccinations in the U.S. in December. British regulators also are assessing the Pfizer shot and another from AstraZeneca.

Comment: Meanwhile Russia and China are many months ahead and have successfully completed trials of their vaccines; Russia's is already in production.

Comment: RT reports that Trump is calling for the FDA to rush through approval of Moderna's experimental and unproven vaccine:
In a statement released on Monday, US biotech company Moderna said it would seek American and European emergency approval for its Covid-19 vaccine candidate, after stage-three trials showed it to be 94.1 percent effective against the deadly coronavirus.

President Donald Trump called on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to "ACT QUICKLY!" in approving the jab, and called his administration's 'Operation Warp Speed' vaccine development program a "great modern day miracle."

That Trump would both seek speedy approval and claim credit for Moderna's breakthrough is no surprise. In a Thanksgiving address to US troops on Thursday, the president promised that vaccine delivery would "literally... start next week and the week after," adding that the military would aid in doling out doses to seniors, healthcare workers and other frontline staff first.

Trump's boast of a "modern day miracle" also comes after US drugmaker Pfizer delayed its announcement of an effective vaccine until five days after this month's election. Though Pfizer insisted that it could only declare the shot effective on the eve of its announcement, Trump accused the company, along with the FDA, of deliberately withholding the information to hamper his re-election bid.

Trump then switched tack and bragged of Operation Warp Speed's role in aiding Pfizer's vaccine development, before the company clarified that it had not actually taken any government money to fund its research.

Moderna, however, took $1.5 billion to develop and produce 100 million doses of its vaccine candidate, giving Trump ample opportunity to claim credit.

Though Joe Biden, who already proclaimed himself the next head of the US, has repeatedly accused Trump of bungling his response to the coronavirus, the president has remained typically cocky. "If you had a different administration with different people, what we've done would have taken, in my opinion, three, four, five years," he told reporters earlier this month.
"We are rounding the curve. The vaccines are being delivered - literally it will start next week and the week after, and it will hit the frontline workers and seniors and doctors, nurses... we're going very quickly," Trump said on Thursday, during a Thanksgiving address to US troops stationed overseas.

"This normally would have taken four or five years, just getting it through the FDA," he added.

And for good reason, partlcularly so for those companies using unproven and highly experimental methods.

Trump has repeatedly noted that the military would take some part in doling out the vaccine, but has left its exact role a mystery in public comments. While Americans are unlikely to receive injections out of the back of a humvee, the Department of Defense has closely coordinated with other government agencies in the push for the jab, dubbed "Operation Warp Speed." Part of that work has meant helping pharmaceutical companies establish "pop-up sites" to conduct vaccine trials, for example, providing logistics support and even double-wide trailers for the tests.

Though state governors have the option of using National Guard units to help move doses of the vaccine, distribution itself will largely be left to manufacturers, which work through networks of commercial shippers. The military will, however, monitor the distribution process through an "operations center," with the main spokesman for Operation Warp Speed, Paul Mango, telling reporters: "They will know where every vaccine dose is.

"If a vaccine dose is at risk of expiring, they will guide the movement of that to someplace else," he said.
A vaccine would at least mean that politicians can't claim that the lockdowns are because they're 'waiting for a vaccine', and it would reveal that the tyrannical lockdowns actually barely conceal a more nefarious agenda. However it also exposes those in the West to danger, because these vaccine trials have been plagued with problems: And check out SOTT radio's:


America's Future is Liberal Fascism Sporting a Smiley Shirt and Armed with a Syringe

bill gates vaccine
The globalists responsible for engineering a medical tyranny across much of the Western world have something valuable to teach right-wing nationalists and would-be fascists, and that is you don't sell your damaged product out of the barrel of a machine gun, but rather dripping from the end of a syringe that promises to end all pain and misery.

Patrick Henry, one of America's more outspoken Founding Fathers, famously remarked "give me liberty or give me death" when the life of his nation was on the line. Today, America's famous battle cry has been replaced by a masked and muffled gasp that advises, without hope of a second opinion, "give me lockdowns and keep me safe." So terrified is the American public of catching a virus that comes with a 99 percent survival rate that they are willing to forego Thanksgiving, the great national holiday commemorating - with no loss of irony - their Pilgrim ancestors' collective courage to overcome the wild, hostile conditions of their new land.

It must be said that no fascist party has ever been so adept when it came to sealing the collective fate of their people to a common enemy. That's because the threat facing mankind today, or so we are told, is not some nefarious ideology, like communism, or even a terrorist organization that the masses can be rallied to fight. Rather, the threat is a microscopic contagion that is capable of invading every nook and cranny of our lives. Already the age of manly handshakes is over, replaced by an emasculated majority, while an entire generation of youth now looks at their fellow human beings as infernal germ factories.


The Covid-19 celebrity humanitarianism: Sean Penn and the Great Reset, funded by Bill Gates and the Clinton Foundation

Sean Penn Core
On the 12th November 2020, an article appeared in the Daily Mail about three powerful men sharing a beach holiday: Twitter's Jack Dorsey, Hollywood's Sean Penn and the reclusive Israeli billionaire, Vivi Nevo. The story slipped under the radar, almost unnoticed by a public caught up in the Covid-19 controversy that continues to sweep the planet. However, the connections between these three elite influencers is well worth a closer look, particularly with regards to their combined role in promoting the transnational corporatocracy's Covid-19 narratives.

Sean Penn and his altruistic aspirations - valiant, misguided or corrupt?

The Clinton connection

Sean Penn established Community Organised Relief Effort (CORE) in January 2010 in response to the earthquake that devastated the island of Haiti that same year. Formerly called the J/P Haitian Relief Organisation, CORE claims that "our life-saving programs revolve around building healthier and safer neighbourhoods to mitigate the scale of devastation caused by disaster."

What CORE fails to mention is that the destabilisation and eradication of Haitian culture, heritage, communities and self-sufficiency began long before the earthquake of 2010. It might have something to do with the funding that CORE receives from USAID, a CIA power expansion agency, and Penn's close relationship with the Clintons whose foundation has been instrumental in the "rapacious role of US imperialism in that impoverished semi-colonial country."

Comment: We at Sott.net prefer that Sean Penn stick to roles that are much better suited to him:

A US color revolution 'comes home to roost' in the 2020 election

2020 Election
It has been more than three weeks since election day and the incumbent U.S. president still has yet to concede defeat. Despite the media's distraction over the perspiration of his personal attorney during a bizarre press conference, the legal team led by former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani has actually done a decent job uncovering potential fraud in battleground states where vote counting was delayed for several days before the former vice president was declared a "winner" by the news media and Silicon Valley. Unfortunately, the 2020 election is not a sporting event or academic paper, therefore evidence that instances of fraud occurred will likely not be enough for the litigation to change the outcome, though it does appear his camp is finally facing up to leaving the White House come January. Then again, whether or not burden of proof was ever provided is immaterial, seeing as before he even took the oath of office a silent coup was underway to remove the democratically-elected government of Donald J. Trump that is now entering its final phase.

Reports of alleged US Army raid on German server may stem from separate incident, say experts

US servers in Germany
Reports that the U.S. military recently seized computer servers in Germany for evidence of election fraud likely pertain to an earlier raid by German authorities over a different issue involving hacked police files, U.S. security sources said.

"There's some cross-information about what happened and where," an intelligence official with expertise in cyber operations told Just the News. "Verified reports about one incident probably got conflated with speculation about another."

The "verified reports" involve a July raid on a German server that hosted sensitive, hacked files from U.S. law enforcement agencies, authorities said. The files reportedly were accessed over the summer, in the course of a Houston data breach.

In that incident, known as "BlueLeaks," a group calling itself Distributed Denial of Secrets [DDoS] reportedly used a German computer server to share sensitive U.S. police material. The material, culled from more than 200 federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, spanned nearly 25 years. It included audio and video files, along with the names, personal phone numbers, and emails of law enforcement officers throughout the United States.

Prosecutors in the Saxony region of Germany seized the DDoS server in July.


British Army spies wage 'information war' against anti-vaxx content online

With a significant number of Britons skeptical of a Covid vaccine, the army has reportedly deployed an "information warfare" unit to stamp out anti-vaxx propaganda online. Offline, citizens still protest lockdowns in the streets.

The British government is expected to greenlight a coronavirus vaccine and begin its distribution next month. In addition to the logistical challenge of getting millions of doses to the public, the government also faces the hurdle of convincing them to take it. According to a recent poll by the British Academy and the Royal Society, more than a third of people in Britain say they're either uncertain or very unlikely to take the vaccine.

According to a report in the Sunday Times, ministers are preparing to launch a massive public information campaign to convince people to take the jab. Behind the scenes, however, the Times reported that the British Army has mobilized the 77th Brigade's Defence Cultural Specialist Unit to monitor and counter "online propaganda against vaccines."

Comment: In today's Orwellian world, anyone who questions the orders of the state is "spreading propaganda." You're not allowed to make your own choices, just trust the government to take care of you.


Soros-linked Smartmatic chairman admitted its 'technology is licensed from Dominion'

Philippine news outlet ABS-CBN interviews Lord Malloch-Brown on June 21, 2015
Despite voter tech firm Smartmatic's insistence that it has "no affiliate relationships or financial ties" with the foreign-owned Dominion Voting Systems, the company Chairman has previously admitted during interviews that "part of our technology is licensed from Dominion."

The comments came from Smartmatic company Chairman Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, who enjoys intricate financial relations and a "famous friendship" with leftist mega-donor George Soros. During a June 2015 interview with Philippine news outlet ABS-CBN, Lord Malloch-Brown admitted, "...yes part of our technology is licensed from Dominion."

The news will raise further questions as to why both Dominion and Smartmatic have gone to recent lengths to distance themselves from one another, following allegations of corruption during the 2020 U.S. elections.

Comment: Malloch-Brown's admission of the connection between Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic comes at the 8:20 mark.

A long-forgotten CIA document from WikiLeaks sheds critical light on today's US politics and wars

© techcrunch.com
The Agency knew that their best asset for selling their wars was Barack Obama -- the same reason so many in the security state were eager to get rid of Donald Trump.

The first time I ever wrote about WikiLeaks was back in early 2010, when the group was still largely unknown. What prompted my attention was a small article in The New York Times which began this way:
To the list of the enemies threatening the security of the United States, the Pentagon has added WikiLeaks.org, a tiny online source of information and documents that governments and corporations around the world would prefer to keep secret.
The NYT explained that the Pentagon had prepared a secret 2008 plan in which they plotted how to destroy WikiLeaks, including by purposely leaking to it false documents with the hope that the group would publish the fakes and forever obliterate their credibility — a dastardly scheme which was ironically leaked to WikiLeaks, which promptly posted the document on its website.

Any group that the U.S. security state includes on its "list of enemies" by virtue of publishing its secrets is one that is going to attract my interest, and likely my support.

Netanyahu could evade trial by becoming president and Israeli law has no power to stop him

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu
The prospect of Netanyahu becoming Israel's president is regarded as problematic by the country's media, primarily because that position should be filled by a person with a stainless reputation, not by somebody who has been indicted in a series of graft probes.

In July, Israel's President Reuven Rivlin will vacate his post and the members of the Israeli parliament will need to elect a new head of state, who will man the position for the next seven years.

According to Israeli law, anyone who is a citizen and resident of Israel can become the country's president and now reports suggest that one of the people eyeing that position is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself.

In Israel, where the presidency is merely symbolic and where the President serves as a role model, allegations that Netanyahu might end up taking the top post have stirred criticism and harsh reactions from the general public.

The reason for this is Netanyahu's ongoing legal battles.

Ukrainian lobbyists pitted US against EU over new Russia-Germany Nord Stream 2 pipeline

Ukrainian energy executives and Kiev's national security officials launched a coordinated lobbying campaign in Washington that put the US on a collision course with EU countries over a new gas pipeline.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday how spin doctors working for Kiev-based Naftogaz and at least one representative of Ukraine's National Security Council pressed for four years to influence White House officials to oppose the Nord Stream 2 project.

According to the newspaper, they relied on close relations with so-called "Russia-skeptics" in Congress, such as Texas Senator Ted Cruz, to propose a package of sanctions on European companies involved in laying the Baltic Sea pipeline.

After Washington warned it would target construction and shipping firms involved in the project, which are mainly based in Germany and Denmark, Naftogaz's Vadim Glamazdin is said to have claimed that it would be "the final nail in the coffin." "When these sanctions are finally voted and become law, there will be no practical way to build this pipeline."

On Saturday it was reported that construction would resume on Nord Stream 2 this week, after a number of companies pulled out of the project last year in response to US threats of legal action. The 764-mile (1,229km) underwater pipeline will be among the longest in the world, linking Siberia's natural gas fields to the German port of Greifswald and more than 150 companies involved in its construction have been earmarked for punitive measures.
