45% of Americans struggling because of soaring inflation, Gallup poll reveals

According to new polling, approximately half of Americans say they are directly feeling the negative impact of record inflation in the US, with some saying the hardships they're facing are severe.

Overall, 45% of respondents in a new Gallup poll said they were struggling directly because of inflation and ballooning prices hitting multiple industries. Among households making $40,000 or less, 71% said they were suffering hardship from inflation.

Of those households earning less than $40,000, over a quarter (28%) describe the financial impact as severe and say they cannot maintain the same standard of living at the moment.

Comment: There's a convergence of issues contributing to soaring costs, including accumulated crop losses, lockdown induced backlogs, and energy supply issues, however, what makes the problems our planet is facing different this time, is that the US can't really solve them simply by printing more money, or invading another country: Also check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: Is The Government Hyping Shortages?

CONFLICT: Reuters news agency Chairman is ALSO a Pfizer investor and Board Member

James C. Smith

James C. Smith
The chairman and former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Reuters news agency - James C. Smith - is a top investor and board member for pharmaceuticals giant Pfizer. He was elected to the board in 2014, as well as joining Pfizer's Corporate Governance and Science and Technology Committees. The news raises serious conflict of interest concerns as corporate media outlets such as Reuters continue to promote Pfizer products, defend pharmaceuticals companies from criticism, and move to silence skeptics.

Smith is currently the Chairman of the Thomson Reuters Foundation, the London-based charity known for providing news and information to billions of readers. He was also the President, Chief Executive Officer, and on the Board of Director of Reuters from 2012 until his retirement in 2020.

He has worked with the organization since 1987, when they were known as the Thomson Newspaper group. He has also served as the CEO of the professional division, overseeing legal, tax and accounting, and intellectual property and science businesses. Later, he went on to lead the North America operations for the news organization.

Comment: Looks like Smith took play out of the Bill Gates handbook - of having a vested monetary interest in pharmaceutical companies AND having a major influence role in the suppression of negative news around Big Pharma products:

Millions of Americans are scrambling to become independent of the system as it collapses all around them

despair
Once upon a time, all of the major institutions in our society were running super smoothly, and most people could rely on the fact that they would always be there when they were needed. But now things are going haywire everywhere that you turn. We are in the midst of the worst supply chain crisis in our entire history, the crime and violence in our largest urban areas is starting to spiral out of control, millions upon millions of our fellow citizens are absolutely seething with hate, and this pandemic is causing officials to make extremely irrational decisions that would have been unthinkable during "normal times". Earlier today, I was horrified to hear that one of my readers had just been denied access to a local hospital. He was taking his wife in for a very important reason, but there were people at the entrance that were checking the vaccination status of everyone that attempted to enter. He and his wife had not been vaccinated, and so they were turned away.

That means that they will not be able to have access to any services at that hospital for the foreseeable future.

Did you ever imagine that a day would come when you might not even be allowed to go inside your local hospital?

In other cases, hospitals are not providing certain services any longer due to severe staffing shortages. In fact, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that some institutions may lose up to a third of their employees due to Biden's mandate for health care workers.

That is madness, and I never imagined that we would see such a thing happen in America.

But here we are.

The woke cult strikes again: London Science Museum alters biology exhibit after trans criticism

Sculpture of the 'Self-Conscious Gene'
The Science Museum in London has agreed to alter an exhibit on human biology and sex characteristics after receiving complaints over a perceived lack of transgender representation and its "non-inclusive narrative."

Museum authorities confirmed that the exhibit, titled 'Boy or Girl?', is currently under review to "take into account new scientific and curatorial research and visitor feedback." The exhibit apparently covers subjects such as hormones and chromosomes and asks, "How are boys and girls different?"

According to internal documents reviewed by The Telegraph, the museum was taking "action to consult the Museum of Transology" about the display. This Brighton-based exhibition bills itself as the UK's "most significant collection of objects representing trans, non-binary and intersex people's lives."

Dying COVID-19 patient recovers after court orders hospital to administer ivermectin

Mr. Sun Ng, fully recovered after receiving ivermectin, just before being discharged from Edward Hospital to head to his daughter’s home, on Nov. 27, 2021.
An elderly COVID-19 patient has recovered after a court order allowed him to be treated with ivermectin, despite objections from the hospital in which he was staying, according to the family's attorney.

After an Illinois hospital insisted on administering expensive remdesivir to the patient and the treatment failed, his life was saved after a court ordered that an outside medical doctor be allowed to use the inexpensive ivermectin to treat him, over the hospital's strenuous objections.

Ivermectin tablets have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat humans with intestinal strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis, two conditions caused by parasitic worms. Some topical forms of ivermectin have been approved to treat external parasites such as head lice and for skin conditions such as rosacea. The drug is also approved for use on animals.

Remdesivir has been given emergency use authorization by the FDA for treating certain categories of human patients that have been hospitalized with COVID-19. But the use of ivermectin to treat humans suffering from COVID-19 has become controversial because the FDA hasn't approved its so-called off-label use to treat the disease, which is caused by the CCP virus also known as SARS-CoV-2.


Comment: After much tragedy, the word is slowly getting out. Thoughtful family members who see their brethren suffering will no longer need to succumb to the criminally malfeasant and malevolent dictates of hospitals.

House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chair Peter DeFazio (D-Oregon)
House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee chair Peter DeFazio (D-Oregon) will not seek re-election in 2022. The founder of the Congressional Progressive Caucus is the 19th House Democrat to bow out before the midterms.

DeFazio, 74, in a statement on Wednesday, said:
"It's time for me to pass the baton to the next generation so I can focus on my health and well-being. This was a tough decision at a challenging time for our republic with the very pillars of our democracy under threat, but I am bolstered by the passion and principles of my colleagues in Congress and the ingenuity and determination of young Americans who are civically engaged and working for change."
The longest-serving member from Oregon, DeFazio has been in the House of Representatives for 36 years. He was among the original founders of the Progressive Caucus, now considered a major influence in internal Democrat politics.

As we approach the end of 2021, the Sott.net team would like to wish all our readers a merry Christmas and a happy new year. Truly, a happy new year! As depressing and foreboding as the general climate is right now, we remember that there is much to be thankful for, not least the friendships and fellowship we discovered and made along the way to building this global network of courageous truth-seekers!

It seems like an age ago now, but the year actually began with hope that the 2020 US presidential election could be 'un-rigged', until a bunch of naive 'revolutionaries' were led up the garden path and straight into the heart of Congress, a trap laid for them by Federal agents who used it to cement the regime's re-taking of the presidency, finally silence Donald Trump, and replace majority with 'minority rule'.

The US presidency has been restored to its purely ceremonial role (and the incumbent can't even carry that out half-decently), and since then everything has just gone downhill real fast. It's a veritable 'sign of our time' that the 'will of the people' has been so thoroughly side-lined - and not just in the US, but right across the world. We all live under the planetary regime of 'Pandemia' now. And it feels like we're in the 'end game'.

Ghislaine Maxwell trial: Pilot says he flew the rich and famous on 'Lolita express', sez underage girl looked mature & reports he didn't see any sexual activity

‘Lolita Express’ pilot says Jeffrey Epstein introduced him to victim ‘Jane’ in the cockpit.
The pilot of the so-called "Lolita Express" testified during the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell that he flew presidents, princes and Hollywood stars on Jeffrey Epstein's private jets for 30 years.

Larry Visoski told the court on Tuesday that he remembered Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and Kevin Spacey being among the passengers.

Mr Visoski name-dropped the high-profile passengers, along with actor Chris Tucker and violinist Itzhak Perlman, when asked during cross-examination if he remembered them specifically.

Comment: Another Independent article states:
Mr Visoski's decades of service were rewarded generously, the court heard. Epstein reportedly gave his pilot 40 acres of land in New Mexico on which to build a house. He also paid for his two daughters to go to college.

In almost 30 years, Mr Visoski said he never once saw Epstein or Ms Maxwell behave inappropriately. He even let his own two daughters ride with Ms Maxwell, who he said seemed like a nice person.
So the pilot could walk to the back of the plane where the bathroom was whenever he wanted to and in 30 years he never saw ANYTHING? Are we really supposed to believe that?

Will smallpox be the next 'lab leak'?

"You should be afraid of the next 'lab leak.'" So, declares a New York Times headline, November 23, 2021.1 And they may well be correct. In recent weeks, insinuations hinting at a potential smallpox outbreak have circulated in the news, while additional evidence of COVID-19 being the result of a lab leak have emerged.2 As reported by The New York Times:3
"The National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories ... in Boston's South End ... has one of the larger collections of Biosafety Level 4 and Biosafety Level 3 labs in the world. These kinds of facilities are where research on the planet's most threatening pathogens takes place.
Ebola, Lassa, Marburg viruses: All are designated for Level 4 work by the National Institutes of Health, meaning they are both transmissible and highly pathogenic, with few (or no) treatments for those who become infected with them ...
In 2015, the NIH commissioned a consulting firm called Gryphon Scientific to do a risk assessment4 of certain types of research at U.S. labs. The result, released in April 2016, was a thousand-page report that concluded, among other things, that experiments to improve the transmissibility of coronaviruses in a lab could 'significantly' increase the chance of a pandemic 'due to a laboratory accident."

Comment: Who knows what the future will bring, it could be a lab leak- intentional/ accidental, microbes and viral particles attached to cometary debris, or a recombining of a virus that is far more deadly thanks to the mass vaccine experiment. Whatever happens, now is the time to ensure we are healthy in body and mind. See also:
