Adapt 2030 Ice Age Report: The Last Truck

With Canada / U.S cross border COVID vax proof starting January 15, 2022 reports of 31,000 truckers will quit their jobs or not deliver across the borders. "Expect a supply chain meltdown" were words used by transport heads in both countries. The burn rate of raw food products jumped 40% but the refill rate at these feeder pools / bulk warehouses is no where that replenish rate. Hope you have made ready.

NY Health Commissioner says she blew hospitalizations out of proportion to push COVID shot for kids

Mary T. Bassett

Mary T. Bassett
Mary T. Bassett said rare incidents of pediatric hospitalizations were brought to the fore 'to motivate pediatricians and families to seek the protection of vaccination' for young children who face virtually no risk from COVID-19.

New York State's acting health commissioner affirmed late last month that she played up extremely rare pediatric COVID-19 hospitalizations to promote injecting all children five years old and above with the experimental and abortion-tainted COVID jabs.

The promotion of universal vaccination in young children comes in spite of evidence that children face very minimal risk from COVID-19, and ignores the thousands of reports of serious adverse events and deaths connected with the experimental shots.

During a December 28, 2021, press conference, acting State Health Commissioner Dr. Mary T. Bassett said that while the numbers of pediatric COVID-related hospital admissions were "small," and while children are not "having an epidemic of infection," a handful of rare pediatric hospitalizations were given center stage in a recent health alert "to motivate pediatricians and families to seek the protection of vaccination" for young children.

Comment: She lied and manipulated the numbers so the PTB can continue with their campaign to vaccinate healthy children with dangerous experimental mRNA shots.

In a normal society, without psychopathic authoritarian rule, she and many others like her should be charged for spreading fear, hysteria and endangering lives of millions of children.

End mass jabs and live with Covid, says ex-head of vaccine taskforce

Covid should be treated as an endemic virus similar to flu, and ministers should end mass-vaccination after the booster campaign, the former chairman of the UK's vaccine taskforce has said.

With health chiefs and senior Tories also lobbying for a post-pandemic plan for a straining NHS, Dr Clive Dix called for a major rethink of the UK's Covid strategy, in effect reversing the approach of the past two years and returning to a "new normality".

"We need to analyse whether we use the current booster campaign to ensure the vulnerable are protected, if this is seen to be necessary," he said. "Mass population-based vaccination in the UK should now end."


Will Justice Sotomayor be banned on Twitter? Don't bet on it.

During the oral arguments over the Biden vaccine mandates last week, two largely disconnected views emerged from the right and left of the Supreme Court. Conservative justices hammered away at the underlying authority of the Biden Administration to issue these mandates, particularly after President Joe Biden's own Chief of Staff admitted that the agency rules were "workarounds" of his constitutional limitations. Conversely, the liberal justices used the "equity" aspects of an injunction to raise more emotive, if not apocalyptic, arguments on the dangers of Covid-19. That led Justice Elena Sotomayor to make a claim about children with Covid that even the Washington Post called "absurdly high" and worthy of "four Pinocchios."

The incident raised a sensitive issue for some of us who oppose the massive censorship programs on Twitter and other social media platforms. Justice Sotomayor was spreading "disinformation" on Covid-19, so could she be barred from Twitter? As you might expect the answer is no, but that is precisely the problem with the corporate censorship embraced by many today.

The controversial statement of Justice Sotomayor could not have come at a worse time. She and her two liberal colleagues were arguing against substantial judicial review of the mandate orders in favor of extreme deference for the agencies. They argued that there was no time to waste in light of the dire crisis facing the country.

Comment: Not only will it not be banned, but it's barely getting any press outside of Fox News... RealClear Politics reports:
How has Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor's incorrect statement that "we have over 100,000 children, which we've never had before, in serious condition and many on ventilators" been covered on television news? The timeline below shows total mentions of the statement across CNN, MSNBC and Fox News through January 9th, showing that CNN was the first to mention the statement, followed by Fox News and then MSNBC, but that Fox News covered it far more than its peers.

After once claiming his shots are "100 effective," Pfizer CEO now says 2 COVID shots "offers very limited protection, if any," against COVID-19.

During a round of interviews on Monday, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla unleashed several truth bombs on an unsuspecting corporate press audience, seemingly sowing doubt into the idea that his own COVID shots are "effective," unless the individual has had at least 3 doses.

[An earlier version of this post misinterpreted Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla's English. It seemed like he was sowing doubt about the safety of his own COVID shots. Instead, he was alluding to a "safety profile" issue regarding his competitor's current shingles vaccination (Shingrix is made by Pfizer competitor GSK and it has 90% market share), which he claimed can be solved with mRNA.]
The Pfizer chief appeared on Squawk Box this morning after the company announced several agreements in the fields of gene editing, with the hopes to use these technologies to bolster the mRNA platform for their COVID shots.

Comment: Bourla is a slimeball of the worst kind, but that's no surprise...


AP source who 'fact checked' Mass Formation Psychosis theory encouraged 'behavioral nudging' people into Covid compliance, quoted Goebbels

jay van bavel robert malone
After podcaster Joe Rogan's wildly popular interview with Dr. Robert Malone aired on "The Joe Rogan Experience," fact checkers jumped into the fray to try to disprove assertions made by Malone.

One of those cited authoritative in the AP "fact check" tweeted in favor of cajoling the public into following COVID-19 restrictions, and now claims that the collective group think around COVID-19, termed by Malone as "mass formation psychosis," isn't real.

New York University assistant professor of psychology and neural science Jay Van Bavel, who "co-authored a book on group identities," has made claims that the only way to fight COVID-19 is for everyone to change their behavior until such time as a vaccine came along. And how to get everyone to change? "We have to think through the lens of behavioral science," Van Bavel wrote. "What can we do to nudge and encourage and cajole and motivate people to do the right thing?"

Comment: Mass Formation Psychosis is indeed a real thing and long predates the name that's currently trending to describe the phenomenon.

CDC director won't say how many of 836,000 deaths are 'from covid' and how many are 'with covid'

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), appeared unable to say just how many of the over 836,000 Americans whose deaths have been attributed to the coronavirus pandemic might have died "with COVID" rather than "from COVID."

Fox News anchor Bret Baier asked Walensky about that during her appearance on "Fox News Sunday," and her response was simply that the data was still coming in, particularly with regard to the rapidly-spreading Omicron variant.

"Do you know how many of the 836,000 deaths in the U.S. linked to COVID are from COVID or how many are with COVID but they had other comorbidities? Do you have that breakdown?" Baier asked.

Comment: So Walensky is "waiting for the numbers".... maybe she should use Fauci's numbers!


BBC Radio 4 presenter Nigel Rees reveals he quit the corporation after 46 years because of its 'patronising' focus on diversity

nigel rees BBC4

Radio 4 presenter Nigel Rees has revealed he quit the BBC after 46 years because he felt pressured by the corporation’s focus on diversity.
Radio 4 presenter Nigel Rees has revealed he quit the BBC after 46 years because he felt pressured by the corporation's focus on diversity.

The 77-year-old, who had presented the Quote... Unquote panel game since January 1976, left the show last month.

He said he felt put under pressure by the BBC's 'priority' to invite diverse guests - even if they were not always the most suitable speakers.

Comment: The Woke Police strike again! This is exactly why legacy media are in a "death spiral". They're catering to a loud minority whose desires don't reflect what the majority of people actually want in their entertainment. Guess the BBC hasn't heard the 'Get woke, go broke' adage.

Jordan Peterson: Open the damn country back up, before Canadians wreck something we can't fix

We are pushing the complex systems upon which we depend and which are miraculously effective and efficient in their often thankless operation to their breaking point, writes Jordan Peterson.
The country is growing more authoritarian in response to fear.

I spent more than three hours on the phone this weekend trying to get through to the online security department of one of Canada's major banks. One of my accounts was shut down (because I had the effrontery to sign in from Alberta — an event too unexpected for the bank's security systems). I was placed on hold interminably, subjected all the while to the corporate world's idea of music (to soothe me). I was then offered a call-back, which I duly received, 45 minutes later. Then I was placed on hold again, and again, and again. This all occurred after my patience had already been exhausted in the aftermath of trying to fly in Canada.

Like so many Canadians, I have been unable to see many of the people I love and who are tolerant enough to return the sentiment for nearly two years. Lockdowns. Restrictions. Limits on personal and social gatherings. Precautions. Precautions. Precautions.

As supply shortages continue in the US, conservatives blame President Biden for the bare shelves

#BareShelvesBiden became one of Twitter's top political trending topics as Americans posted photos of empty supermarket shelves amid continuous supply chain issues in the US.

Angry social media users displayed photos of empty supermarket shelves from the across the US and blamed President Joe Biden for the supply issues, with one American complaining, "I feel like I am in a third world country."

Comment: And it's not just stores:

As noted on this week's NewsReal radio show (linked below): 'The global economy is teetering on the edge of collapse as a result of supply chain breakages, labor shortages, and energy price rises caused by governments' blinkered Covid policies. The Americans' latest push to throttle the Russian economy may spark a cascade of crises that lead to food and energy poverty for people everywhere. And they know it. But they don't care because, well... because "it's worth it." : NewsReal: Kazakhstan on Fire: Why US vs Russia 'Great Game' Could Spark Global Economic Collapse
