A 30-year-old runner died Saturday morning at the finish line of the Brooklyn Half Marathon, authorities said.
One runner died Saturday morning after finishing the Brooklyn Half Marathon, authorities said.

The 30-year-old man, who was not identified, possibly suffered cardiac arrest around 9 a.m. and was taken to Coney Island Hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to the NYPD.

The runner collapsed after finishing the race, according to the New York Road Runners club which held the event. The runner fell on the boardwalk, a source said.

Comment: Accuweather says it was 32°C (89°F) in Brooklyn that day. That's hot, but certainly half-marathons have been run in hotter weather. Is this another case of a vaccinated athlete dropping dead? If only there were a journalist actually doing their job, we might know.

The US health authorities have signed a deal for $119 million in vaccine doses against the monkeypox virus, after a Massachusetts man was diagnosed with the rare but potentially serious illness earlier this week.

The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) - a government agency devoted to combating pandemics and bioterrorism - signed the multi-million-dollar contract with Danish pharma firm Bavarian Nordic on Wednesday, the company announced in a statement.

The $119 million deal is one in a series of contract options which could ultimately reach a total value of $299 million if exercised, in exchange for around 13 million freeze-dried doses of the Jynneos vaccine. It was originally created for smallpox, but was approved for use against monkeypox by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2019, just months before the first cases of Covid-19 were detected in China.

Initial deliveries for the Jynneos shot won't come until 2023, the company said, noting that the full 13 million doses are expected to be ready sometime between 2024 and 2025 should BARDA agree to extend the contract.


Douglas Murray: Talk about deadly obesity risks in America? Fat chance

Many Americans in power have not discussed the real risks that come with obesity.
Is it fun to be fat? That´s what Cosmopolitan magazine claimed in February 2021. That month's cover was of a morbidly obese woman looking cheerful while attempting some acrobatics. The headline: "This is healthy! 11 women on why wellness doesn't have to be one size fits all."

The timing could hardly have been worse. After all, this was in a period when the Coronavirus was leading to lockdowns around the world. And one thing we knew very early about the virus was that one of the main factors that lead to hospitalizations and even death was if the patient was fat. Almost nothing in the often confusing COVID era was ever as clear as this. Nearly 80% of Americans who were hospitalized with COVID were obese. And just as being obese put you at special risk from the virus, so losing weight lessened your chances of being hospitalized.

But you can tell a lot about a society by what it will not say. And through the whole of the last two years almost nobody in any position of authority dared issue any public lessons about this.

Pandemic 2: Monkeypox Madness

Monkey Fever
© Off-Guardian
Monkeypox - it's the hip new disease sweeping the globe. Allegedly appearing almost simultaneously in over a dozen different countries on four different continents.

As we wrote in the early days of the Covid "pandemic", the only thing spreading faster than the disease is fear.

The media reported the first UK case of monkeypox on the 7th of May. Less than two weeks later, we're seeing some very familiar headlines. Just like that...Pandemic 2: Monkey Pox!! begins playing at all your favorite fear porn outlets.

Sky News tells us that UK Monkeypox "cases" have "doubled(!)"...from 10 to 20.

The BBC went real subtle with it, blaring: "Monkeypox: Doctors concerned over impact on sexual health"

The New Scientist has actually used the P-word, asking "Can Monkeypox become a new pandemic?", before answering, essentially, "probably no, but also maybe yes!". Keeping their options open.

Science warns that "Monkeypox outbreak questions intensify as cases soar"

The Mirror has gone full paranoid already, headlining:
Russia looked into using monkeypox as biological weapon, claims ex soviet scientist
So that's one direction the story might go.

To be clear, "monkeypox" (whatever that even means in this context), is NOT a Russian bio-weapon. It's not a Western bio-weapon either. Or Chinese bio-weapon. It's just another scare story. And a rushed, half-hearted one at that.


World Health Organization confirms 80 cases of monkeypox with outbreaks in 11 countries

The World Health Organization has confirmed about 80 cases of monkeypox with recent outbreaks reported in 11 countries, according to a statement Friday from the global health agency.

The outbreaks are unusual because they are occurring in countries where the virus is not endemic, according to the WHO. More cases will likely be reported in the coming days as surveillance broadens, it said.

"WHO is working with the affected countries and others to expand disease surveillance to find and support people who may be affected, and to provide guidance on how to manage the disease," the agency said.

Comment: Roll out the lockdowns, face masks and might-as-well-be-mandatory vaccinations - the monkeypox is here!

Pfizer document dump shows doctor with ties to Gates Foundation deleted trial participant's vaccine injury

An 80,000-page cache of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine documents released by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sheds light on Pfizer's extensive vaccine trials in Argentina, including the unusually large size of the trials and the story of a trial participant whose vaccine reaction was "disappeared."

The case of Augusto Roux in Argentina suggests that in at least one instance, a trial participant whose symptoms were determined to be connected to the COVID-19 vaccine was later listed, in official records, as having experienced adverse events that were not related to the vaccination.

Vaccine trials in Argentina also appear to have glossed over adverse events suffered by other trial participants, and the potential connection between the adverse events and the vaccine.

Return of the Covid fearmongers

Dr. Eric Topol Director of Scripps Research covid

Dr. Eric Topol, Director of Scripps Research
The fear is ramping up again. Articles are appearing talking up the threat from Omicron. Leading U.S. scientist Dr. Eric Topol, Director of Scripps Research in California, has produced a classic of the genre. Titled "The Covid Capitulation", it lambasts the U.S. and other world governments for trying to move on from the pandemic, criticising the CDC in particular for propagating "delusional thinking" and "conveniently feeding the myth that the pandemic is over".

New Omicron subvariants like BA.2 and BA.2.12.1 are surging in the U.S. and around the world, he says, and the "real number of cases [in the U.S.] is likely at least 500,000 per day, far greater than any of the U.S. prior waves except Omicron".

But Omicron is mild, right? Dr. Topol is having none of it. Infections spread like wildfire, he says, and "beget Long Covid, they beget sickness, hospitalisations and deaths. They are also the underpinning of new variants".


FDA authorizes booster for children ages 5-11

FDA logo sign
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Tuesday authorized a booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine to children between the ages of 5 and 11, extending booster doses to the youngest age group yet.

Experts have stressed the importance of booster shots for older age groups as a key way to increase protection in the face of waning immunity over time from the initial shots, as well as the increased evasiveness of the omicron variant currently circulating.

Now, children 5-11 will be eligible for boosters for the first time.

Comment: Nothing they're telling us is true. But the general public is still largely unaware of the problematic 'side-effects' the vaccines cause and will likely be lining up to get their children boosted. But for those with eyes to see...

As news of the COVID pandemic winds down around the world, we're suddenly seeing warnings of another pandemic brewing — bird flu, aka avian influenza (H5N1). In a March 30, 2022, CenterPoint interview, former Director for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Robert Redfield, stated:1
"I believe the great pandemic still in the future, and that's going to be a bird flu pandemic for man. It's going to have significant mortality in the 10 to 50% range. It's going to be trouble."

UK: 7 people infected with monkeypox, believed to be sexually transmitted, health bosses propose social distancing


Seven Britons have been diagnosed with monkeypox and six of them appear to have contracted it in the UK — in a sign the virus is spreading in the community. The seventh UK patient had brought the virus back from Nigeria, where the disease is widespread. At least three patients are receiving care at specialist NHS units in London and Newcastle
Monkeypox may spread during sexual contact, UK health chiefs now believe.

Government scientists are probing whether sex could be one of the drivers of the current spate of cases.

The rare tropical disease was known to spread via close contact — but it had never been linked to sexual intercourse.

So far seven Brits have been diagnosed with the virus and six are thought to have been infected in the UK, in a sign it is spreading in the community for the first time.

Four of the cases are in gay or bisexual men, who are now being urged to be extra vigilant for new lesions or rashes.

Comment: Were these men also injected with the experimental covid jabs?
