Paxton's office accused Pfizer of 'unlawfully misrepresenting the effectiveness of the company's COVID-19 vaccine'

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing Pfizer, alleging that the pharmaceutical giant lied about the effectiveness of its COVID-19 vaccine.

In a press release obtained by Fox News Digital, Paxton's office accused Pfizer of "unlawfully misrepresenting the effectiveness of the company's COVID-19 vaccine and attempting to censor public discussion of the product."

Paxton said Pfizer's claim that its vaccine possessed 95% efficacy against infection was "highly misleading."

Comment: That Pfizer can make such a hypocrisy-stuffed statement is astonishing. May Paxton's filing be the first of a flood of lawsuits. Read the full document:


The new 'Chinese disease' panic is upon us

Lockdown due to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreaks in Beijing on May 10, 2022
News has been spreading throughout the media about a "disease outbreak" in China.

For many, this brings back bad memories. The illness, described as a form of pneumonia, has reportedly gone widespread very quickly, triggering comparisons to how the Covid-19 pandemic emerged. As with the coronavirus, it was not long before there followed accusations of a government cover-up of the extent of the spread.

Cases of the same illness occurring outside of China have been the target of media attention, such as those in Denmark and the US, as has the World Health Organization's request for more information and Beijing's response.


Japan approves world's first 'self-amplifying mRNA' Covid vaccine - with no safety or efficacy data

© unknown
It's up to you in Japan
After years of injecting themselves with foreign-made mRNA injections, patriotic Japanese Covidians will finally get the chance to put some domestically made lipid nanoparticles into their bloodstreams. From NHK World:
A Japanese Health Ministry panel has said a coronavirus vaccine developed by Daiichi Sankyo can be used for inoculations in Japan. It would be the first Japanese-made Covid shot available for practical use.
Would you be surprised to know that the majority of the panel still wears masks?
The panel of experts held a meeting on Monday. The experts said they confirmed the vaccine's effectiveness, and that they have no serious concerns over its safety.
Banzai! Unfortunately, the article doesn't give any details of the effectiveness the experts apparently confirmed. Fortunately, Daiichi-Sankyo previously put out a press release joyously announcing that the primary endpoint had been reached in the Phase Three trial of their Covid vaccine (DS-5670). So...did DS-5670 reach 95% effectiveness like Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna did?
The primary endpoints of the booster vaccination trial were the geometric mean blood neutralising antibody titer and immune response against SARS-CoV-2 (Omicron BA.5 subvariant) four weeks after the investigational vaccination. Results on the endpoints in the DS-5670 group were higher than those in the control group (Omicron-adapted bivalent vaccine approved in Japan), statistically demonstrating non-inferiority of DS-5670.
In other words, DS-5670 produced more antibodies against BA.5 than the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna bivalent jab, neither of which has ever been shown to be effective. How many more? Dunno yet.
Detailed results from the booster vaccination trial will be presented at academic conferences and in publications.
You may be thinking, "Hang on. Are you telling me that Japan just approved a completely new Covid jab based on unpublished antibody titers?" Yep, that's exactly what I'm telling you.

Project Ireland 2040
Recent events in Ireland, when an Algerian man with Irish citizenship stabbed several people including two children which led to riots, suggest that there may be concern in some sections of Irish society at the current levels of immigration. But the Irish are lucky. Their Government has already told them how many migrants they, as signatories to the UN Compact on Safe and Orderly Migration, expect to import over the next 17 years.

In 2019, the Irish Government published a national planning strategy called 'Project Ireland 2040'. The document states:
The aim of Project Ireland 2040 is to construct an improved Ireland for all of us. By 2040, there will be approximately one million additional people living here in Ireland. This population growth will require hundreds of thousands of new jobs, new homes, heightened cultural and social amenities, enhanced regional connectivity and improved environmental sustainability. Project Ireland 2040 sets out to deliver these.


Irish leftists blame violence against women on misogyny to hide the real cause: Open borders

Ireland's rate of deadly violence against women could fall dramatically through sensible migration policy and other basic programs.

A 2022 report by RealClearPolitics confirmed what many Europeans had long suspected but could not prove because of data obfuscation by individual governments: Europe has a massive immigrant violent crime problem.

The 10-year data study showed that across the EU, "each one percentage point increase in immigrant population is associated with a 3.6 percent increase in the homicide rate." In Germany, where police and politicians fiercely guard immigrant crime statistics, an academic study found that asylum applicants were responsible for a massive 10.4 percent rise in violent crime in Lower Saxony alone in 2015 and 2016, an apparent effect of Angela Merkel's 2015 open-doors migration policy. It is a familiar pattern across Western Europe's industrial hubs. In the first half of 2022, foreign nationals committed 70 percent of the violent robberies in Paris. Another academic study in Sweden found that in 2017, immigrants accounted for 73 percent of all cases of manslaughter, murder, and attempted murder.

To the residents of Ireland, however, the human carnage unfolding on the continent had been abstract. Traditionally protected from the dangers of mass unvetted migration due to being an economic backwater, the spectacular economic boom of the '90s and early '00s spurred a massive influx of migrants to such a degree that now more than 20 percent of the Irish population is foreign-born. In 2022, Ireland had its reckoning with migrant crime. Predictably, the government attempted to cover it up.


Scott Ritter: Israel's Gaza offensive reveals political and military defeat

Israel and Hamas have extended the Qatari-brokered ceasefire in the Gaza Strip that Tel Aviv vowed would never happen.

Comment: This article is from a few days ago during the 'humanitarian' pause - that Israel did not abide by - since then Tel Aviv has reignited their genocidal campaign with predictable ferocity.

Former United Nations (UN) weapons inspector and US Marine Scott Ritter argued that the outcome was a political victory for the Palestinian resistance movement.

Israel has lost both the political and military battle in the Gaza Strip, says a leading geopolitical commentator.

Israel and the Hamas Islamic resistance movement that governs the besieged Palestinian enclave reportedly agreed on Tuesday to extend the four-day ceasefire, brokered by Persian Gulf Arab state Qatar, for another two to three days.

Exchanges of captives will continue during that extension, with Hamas releasing 20 Israelis taken prisoner during its October 7 raids into southern Israel. The number of Palestinians to be freed was not reported, but Israel had previously released 180 women and children from its jails in return for 61 Israeli civilians and roughly 20 foreigners held by Hamas.

Pet wolf hybrid attacks, kills 3-month old baby in Alabama

A three-month-old child is dead in Alabama after being attacked by a wolf hybrid kept as a pet by the baby's family, officials said Friday.

The Shelby County Sheriff's Office was summoned to residence in Chelsea, Alabama just before 1 p.m. local time on Thursday, the office said in a news release. The call reported an animal attack involving an infant. Deputies, firefighters and animal control officers responded to the scene.

CBS News affiliate WIAT reported that emergency personnel were able to get the three-month-old baby away from the animal and transport the child to Grandview Medical Center, an area hospital.

UK Health Security head admits use of face masks was never 'evidence based'

During testimony at the UK government's COVID inquiry this week, England's former deputy chief medical officer at the height of the pandemic admitted that there was never any proof that face masks were effective in slowing or preventing the spread of the virus, and in all likelihood made the problem worse.

Professor Dame Jenny Harries, now the head of the UK Health Security Agency, explained that the policy wasn't based on scientific reality and had the effect of instilling a "false sense of security," convincing people that they would reduce their risk of becoming infected if they wore a mask.

She also told the inquiry that government advice on how to make a mask out of bits of cloth and old t-shirts was wholly "ineffective".

"There appeared to be a view permeating through, and a real concern and risk, that it was being conceived that if you did one metre (social distancing) and you wore a face covering slung round your cheek, or whatever it might be, that was fine," Harries noted.

She continued, "So, there was a risk that in encouraging face (masks) people would stop doing the thing that was really important, which was distancing and all the other things."


Russia bans 'LGBT movement'

The Supreme Court of Russia outlawed the "international LGBT public movement" on Thursday, designating it as extremist. The ruling also affects its subsidiaries, the court announced, without naming specific organizations.

The lawsuit, filed earlier this month by the Russian Justice Ministry, argued that "the LGBT movement's" activities qualified it as an "extremist group." Specifically, it has been sowing "social and religious discord" in the country, the ministry claimed.

The hearings took place behind closed doors and lasted over four hours as the case involved more than 20 tomes of material, RIA Novosti reported, citing the Supreme Court's press service. No representatives of the "international LGBT movement" were present during the hearings, with only an attorney for the Justice Ministry in attendance.


Exposed: Bill Gates's relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein revolved around a Global Health Investment Fund

Earlier this month, I revealed that one of Bill Gates's most powerful business partners, JPMorgan Chase, had reached a combined $365 million settlement with Jeffrey Epstein's victims and the U.S. Virgin Islands, which a federal judge approved on November 9.

My new book Controligarchs: Exposing the Billionaire Class, Their Secret Deals, and the Globalist Plot to Dominate Your Life digs deeper into Gates's partnership with JPMorgan and how it led to Gates's relationship with Epstein via a top JPMorgan executive named James E. "Jes" Staley.

Staley, who was a senior JPMorgan executive in 2011; former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers; Jeffrey Epstein; Microsoft Co-founder Bill Gates; and Boris Nikolic, who was a science adviser for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Over time, Gates and JPMorgan established an investment fund that sought to profit from the development of vaccines and other health technologies. Epstein wanted a piece of the action, and Staley brought Epstein into the Gates partnership.
