DeSantis furious after FDA pulls authorization of antibody drugs: 'Sudden and reckless'

desantis florida monoclonal antibody treatments

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis
U.S. health officials say COVID-19 antibody drugs from Regeneron and Eli Lilly should no longer be used because they are unlikely to work against the omicron variant.

The Food and Drug Administration said Monday it is revoking emergency authorization for both drugs. If they prove effective against future variants, the FDA says it can reauthorize their use.

The move was expected because both drugmakers had previously said their drugs are less effective against omicron.

Federal officials said the FDA decision was supported by several independent studies, including a peer-reviewed paper published in the journal Nature last month.

Comment: What the article leaves out is DeSantis's assessment of the study that caused the FDA to pull the drug. From the governor's press conference above:
"[T]hey (theFDA) are relying on revoking this and pulling the rug out from under people on a single, non-peer-reviewed, non-clinical study that was actually done by a consultant for a rival company to the the other two monoclonal antibody treatments. This is not based on a clinical trial. This is not even peer-reviewed. So this is something that they claim it shouldn't be used because we have omicron. And what we would say in Florida is, we have had people use it and we've had good results."

Byzantine Patriarchate issues warning about 'third vaccination terror' being launched upon the world

Patriarch Elijah
The Byzantine Catholic Patriarchate is a community of monastic priests, monks, and bishops with roots in Eastern Europe. I somehow ended up on their mailing list and have been receiving their letters and releases since the onset of the Covid plandemic.

I know some of my readers might cringe at the idea of watching or listening to anything remotely connected to the word "Catholic," but please do not confuse this group with the Roman Catholic Church headquartered at the Vatican. They are totally independent and not connected to the Vatican in any way. I have thoroughly vetted this group and they are legit Christian believers, very devout and conservative.

I will say this: Unlike many of today's Laodicean church pastors, the Byzantine Catholic Patriarchate priests do not mince words or pull punches. I urge you to listen to their message in this video.

In terms of its background, the Byzantine Patriarchate is headed by Patriarch Elijah with two Secretary Bishops, Timothy and Methodius. The patriarchate arose from the need to defend the fundamental Christian truths against heresies and apostasy within the Catholic churches. It does not recognize the false prophet Pope Bergoglio [Pope Francis] and is not subordinate to him in any way.

Comment: One needn't be a Catholic or practicing Christian (or adherent of any organized religion) to recognize that humanity is now under Major physical and spiritual siege from an array of forces that interpenetrate governmental bureaucracies, religious institutions, and the fields of education, medicine and others. But it greatly helps to recognize that a 'cosmic' Malevolence does, in fact, exist (as well as what forms it takes and what it acts through) - in order to begin to resist it.

Financial Market historian Jeremy Grantham just warned of a 'superbubble' and predicted an epic crash

Jeremy Grantham is a famed investor and historian of stock markets.
Jeremy Grantham, the legendary investor who has predicted the last three market bubbles, foresees the S&P 500 crashing almost 50% after the fourth "superbubble" the US has ever seen bursts — even with multiple efforts underway to prevent it.

The market historian, who has repeatedly warned investors they're caught in a historic bubble, said the benchmark index may slip to around 2,500 — a downside of roughly 44% from Thursday's close and 48% from January's peak. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite, meanwhile, might see a sharper downturn, he added.

"This time last year it looked like we might have a standard bubble with resulting standard pain for the economy," Grantham said in a note published Thursday on the website of his Boston-based asset management firm, GMO. "But during the year, the bubble advanced to the category of superbubble, one of only three in modern times in US equities, and the potential pain has increased accordingly."

What made the bubble worse, according to the investor, is how it's been accompanied by extremely low interest rates and high bond prices as well as a bubble in housing and an "incipient bubble" in commodities.

Comment: On top of a failing supply chain, the move from a cash system to CBDC's, and other major developments, the economic pain (and resulting chaos) that is shaping up for most Americans promises to reach truly epic and tragic proportions. Prepare as best as you can.

Eric Clapton says he sees mass formation psychosis 'everywhere'

eric clapton
Legendary rocker Eric Clapton appeared on the Real Music Observer YouTube channel last week, to discuss vaccination and mass formation psychosis, the theory made popular recently by Dr. Robert Malone.

In the interview, Clapton discusses how he himself took the vaccine, but now regrets it. Clapton says that he was tricked into getting the vaccine early on by subliminal messaging, and warned the public not to fall for the same tricks.

Clapton then discusses mass formation psychosis, a form of mass hysteria, which is described as "a phenomenon that transmits collective illusions of threats, whether real or imaginary, through a population and society as a result of rumors and fear," saying that he initially missed out on the memo for mass formation psychosis, saying that he later realized that there was a memo.

Comment: It's rather amazing how many of rock's legendary 'rebels' are showing themselves to be pusillanimous establishment sell-outs when the official narrative changes. It's nice to have Clapton and Morrison, but where's everybody else? Neil Young is just the latest casualty on a very long list icons to be disappointed in. It looks like 'rebellion' and 'counter-culture' was always just an act to sell records.

German care providers warn the sector can't afford further staff shortages under an impending vaccine mandate.

Many German households could "have a problem getting the care they need" if the government makes Covid vaccination compulsory within the healthcare sector, Daniel Schloer, the owner of the SunaCare GmbH agency told Reuters.

Schloer's organization provides 24-hour home care services for the elderly in Germany, matching clients with private nurses from other EU states, primarily Poland.

Comment: It's rather telling that the number of health care workers refusing the vaccine exceeds the proportional number in the general public. Maybe they know something the rest of us don't.

Freedom Convoy: Truckers angry over vaccine mandates roll toward Canada's capital in protest UPDATE: GoFundMe withholding raised funds for truckers

Trucks line up to cross the U.S. border in Sarnia, Ontario, after the COVID-19 vaccine mandate took effect.
'I'm literally going to lose my truck, my house, my car, my savings,' says unvaccinated owner-operator.

Truck drivers in Canada are slow-rolling in convoys across the country to protest the COVID-19 vaccine mandate at the U.S. border, with plans to converge at the capital, Ottawa, on Saturday.

Among them will be Ontario owner-operator Brigitte Belton, who until recently regularly moved freight between the U.S. and Canada. Since Saturday, she and other drivers who haven't been vaccinated against COVID-19 have been barred from crossing the border.

Comment:




From National Post:
Truck Convoy supporters would be correct in their contention that the protest isn't attracting nearly as much official attention compared to prior protests that have been numerically much smaller, such as the pro-Wet'suwet'en blockades that dominated the national discourse in early 2020. Only on Monday did the convoy first receive acknowledgement from major party leaders. Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole dodged a question on the convoy, while Prime Minister Justin Trudeau obliquely mentioned the protests while accusing Conservatives of "fear mongering" by linking trucker vaccine mandates to supply chain disruptions.

Actually, one of the only major organizations to comment on the protest has been the Canadian Trucking Alliance, who denounced it . The CTA - which previously opposed vaccine mandates on truckers - is now advising truckers to comply and "strongly disapproves" of protests to the contrary . "This regulation is not changing so, as an industry, we must adapt and comply with this mandate," wrote the group in a Saturday statement.
UPDATE: The $4.7 million raised for the truckers via GoFundMe is being withheld by the crowd-sourced funding service. From CBC:
GoFundMe has frozen access to the more than $4.7 million in funds raised by the trucker convoy now winding its way across the country toward Ottawa in a protest against vaccine mandates.

"We require that fundraisers be transparent about the flow of funds and have a clear plan for how those funds will be spent. In this case, we are in touch with the organizer to verify that information," Rachel Hollis, a spokeswoman for the crowdfunding platform, said in an email.

"Funds will be safely held until the organizer is able to provide the documentation to our team about how funds will be properly distributed."

As of Tuesday afternoon, funds were raised from 61,100 donors, according to the GoFundMe page of the "Freedom Convoy."

Tamara Lich, who is also secretary of the fledgling Western separatist Maverick Party, launched the campaign on Jan. 14. It states that the money will go toward fuel as well as food and lodgings for big-riggers taking part.

Ontario, Canada officer under investigation for voicing support for trucker convoy

Erin Howard
A police officer is under investigation after posting a video on social media expressing support for the trucker's freedom convoy headed to Ottawa to protest COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

Officer Erin Howard of Ontario posted the video to her Twitter, expressing support for the truckers who left from British Columbia on Sunday.

The convoy deployed in reaction to the Liberal Party's decision to make it mandatory for truckers crossing the borders to be vaccinated.

Comment: Expressing support for the truckers is enough to get you investigated, apparently. Tell us again about how Canada is a "free country."

Emails reveal scientists suspected COVID leaked from Wuhan lab - then quickly censored themselves

Security teams guard the outside of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
From almost the moment the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the medical-research establishment in Washington and London insisted that the virus had emerged naturally. Only conspiracy theorists, they said, would give credence to the idea that the virus had escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Now, a string of unearthed emails — the most recent being a batch viewed by the House Oversight and Reform Committee and referred to in its Jan. 11 letter — is making it seem increasingly likely that there was, in fact, a conspiracy, its aim being to suppress the notion that the virus had emerged from research funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), headed by Anthony Fauci.

The latest emails don't prove such a conspiracy, but they make it more plausible for two reasons: because the expert virologists therein present such a strong case for thinking that the virus had lab-made features, and because of the wholly political reaction to this bombshell on the part of Francis Collins, then-director of the National Institutes of Health.

People wearing face masks as a preventive measure against the spread of covid-19 walks along the Street in Ukraine.
Israel is said to be contemplating a mass airlift of those eligible for Israeli citizenship in the case of a Russian invasion

Top officials in Israel are said to be preparing for a scenario in which will they fly out tens of thousands of Jewish people from Ukraine in the event of a Russian invasion, a top local newspaper has reported amid persistent Western speculation that Moscow could be planning an all-out offensive.

In a report on Sunday, Haaretz claimed that representatives from several government offices had met over the weekend to discuss the risk of the Jewish community in the Eastern European nation potentially being caught up in a conflict.

The briefing is said to have included officials from the National Security council; the foreign defense, transport, and affairs ministries; as well as those responsible for maintaining relations with Jews residing in territories of the former

Comment: The western psychopathing elites re-accusing Russia for moving its own troops on its own territory, but glorifying the fascism in Ukraine and saying that the movement of the army and weapons to the Ruassian border is nothing to worry about?

How have they come to this bizarre reality?

Bari Weiss slams Biden's 'pandemic of bureaucracy' on Bill Maher

Bari Weiss
Weiss said that the COVID-19 restrictions will be "remembered by the younger generation as a catastrophic moral crime."

Journalist and author Bari Weiss appeared on TV host Bill Maher's show Friday night and delivered an impassioned discourse on the COVID-19 narrative.

"I'm done with COVID. I'm done!" declared Weiss as the crowd applauded. "I went so hard on COVID. I sprayed the Pringle's cans that I bought at the grocery store. I stripped my clothes off because I thought COVID would be on my clothes. Like, I did it all. I watched Tiger King. I got to the end of Spotify. We all did it, right?"

"No, we didn't all do it," responded a serious Maher.

"Well, here's the thing: a lot of us did do it," the former New York Times editor continued. "And then we were told, 'You get the vaccine. You get the vaccine and you go back to normal.' And we haven't gotten back to normal."


Comment: Good for Weiss, but how many of the liberal-leaning - or of any leaning - have yet to open their eyes about the tyrannical nature of mandates and the madness of group-think?!?

Below is YouTuber Liberal Hivemind's very good analysis of Weiss's very reasonable rant:
