Passport

'Papers, please': Vaccine Passports have officially arrived

packing for trip
For a weary public longing to get back to normalcy, vaccine passports represent a tantalizing carrot, being dangled as a mechanism for freedom. By showing proof that you've received a COVID-19 vaccine, perhaps you can once again board an airplane and travel freely, attend a concert or enjoy a meal in your favorite restaurant, just like you used to.

Except, being required to present your "papers" in order to live your life isn't actually freedom at all — it's discrimination, and even a move toward technocratic fascism, one that's setting the stage for increased surveillance and erosion of your privacy.

Nonetheless, this blatant move toward an ever-increasing surveillance state is being welcomed by many who have been led to believe the passports are necessary to protect public health and safety.

Flesh-eating ulcer spreads to inner Melbourne suburbs

Buruli

Mycobacterium ulcerans, the bacterium that causes Buruli ulcers.
A flesh-eating disease affecting parts of coastal Victoria has spread to inland Melbourne for the first time, with several cases reported in Essendon, Moonee Ponds and Brunswick West.

Victorian Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said on Tuesday that the risk of acquiring the ulcer in those areas was considered low, but "this is the first non-coastal area in Victoria to be recognised as a potential area of risk".

"A genetic analysis of bacteria isolated from these people as part of a research project suggests a common source of infection in the area," Professor Sutton said in a health advisory issued to medicos and residents on Tuesday.

How childhood infections can provide protection against future pandemics

A child's first influenza infection shapes their immunity to future airborne flu viruses — including emerging pandemic strains. But not all flu strains spur the same initial immune defense, according to new findings published today by University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine virologists in the journal PLOS Pathogens.

"These results are relevant right now to the COVID-19 pandemic," said senior author Seema Lakdawala, Ph.D., assistant professor of microbiology and molecular genetics at Pitt. "They may explain age-based distributions of SARS-CoV-2 disease severity and susceptibility.

"Having flu once does not make you immune to all future influenza viruses," she said. "Nor does having had the original SARS virus in 2003 or any of the 'common cold' coronaviruses in circulation necessarily mean you can't get infected with SARS-CoV-2. But your susceptibility to infection might be different than someone who has never encountered a coronavirus."

Comment: It would appear that, for a number of reasons, lockdowns and experimental vaccines that prevent children from acquiring natural immunity may actually worsen future epidemics and pandemics:

Objective:Health - The Rise of Medical Technocracy and the Suppressed Truth of Viral Treatments - Interview with Dr. Lee Merritt

O:H header merritt
On this episode of Objective:Health we talk to Dr. Lee Merritt about the rise of medical technocracy and how Covid is an act of stealth warfare against our nation. The corruption of the medical profession and why the coronavirus vaccines are dangerous bioweapons being deployed against the people. Dr. Merritt has taken two oaths: the Hippocratic Oath and the Oath to the Constitution as a Naval Officer. She is in this fight to support those two oaths.

Dr. Merritt studied bioweapons while serving as an orthopedic surgeon in the United States Navy for 9 years. And has been in the private practice of Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgery since 1995, served on the Board of the Arizona Medical Association, and is past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. She is the author of Surviving the Medical Meltdown: Your Guide to Living Through The Disaster of Obamacare and also authored an informative paper for the Journal of American Physicians & Surgeons The treatment of viral diseases: Has the truth been suppressed for decades?

Join us as we talk in-depth about the history of masks, mRNA technology and effective treatments for viral disease, like Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, and vitamin D.

COVID-19 appears to be dying off. Was this the plan? [Video]

Covid-19 Dashboard Screeshot
The video clip shows the only nation to have reported the drop in the last month was India. Something to think about.

Hear much about COVID-19 lately? Sure you do, you think. We hear about vaccinations taking place and all manner of furor about whether the vaccine is any good, or if it is a mind-control drug or some fiercely dangerous compound that kills more people than the virus it is supposed to protect everybody from. In the United States, the ferocity of this argument appears to be fierce, while in Russia it is quiet. Life goes on, at least in Russia, with businesses beginning to run "as usual" once again.

But have you heard much about COVID-19 itself, lately? That is the question here. The answer is probably "no."

Comment: The COVID-19 virus was probably a man-made virus, but not necessarily a bio-weapon, since it looks like it was not designed to kill many people (compare to something like ebola). Can we infer intent by looking at what has happened in response? If so, the virus has enabled psychopathic elites to impose totalitarian rules and absolute control over the world population and economy by creating massive panic and fear. Intentional or not, that's quite a feat. And all this madness is supported and spread by mainstream media and national governments.

A new strain of avian flu, similar to the infectious virus that has triggered past pandemic fears, has been discovered by scientists in Russia after an outbreak of a previously unknown disease in the country's south.

On Saturday, Anna Popova, the head of health watchdog Rospotrebnadzor told journalists that experts at the Vector Institute in Siberia had "isolated genetic material" from a new influenza variant.

The samples they tested came from seven employees of a poultry farm in southern Russia, which registered a bird flu outbreak in December last year.

The outbreak is DR Congo's 11th since Ebola was identified in 1976.
Thirty-one people have died in an outbreak of plague that erupted in northeastern DR Congo three months ago, health officials and experts said on Friday.

"We have more than 520 cases... of which more than 31 have been fatal," Patrick Karamura, health minister in Ituri province, where plague is endemic, told AFP.

The cases are the bubonic form of the disease, except for five cases of pneumonic plague and two of septicaemic plague, he said.

Comment: This comes amidst reports that eight people tested positive for Ebola in Guinea, which is the first resurgence in the country since world's worst outbreak in 2016.

Is moderate alcohol consumption really healthy?

Alcohol
© Sebastian Rushworth.com
I'm going to start this article by revealing my own biases. I'm not sure where the idea that alcohol might be healthy comes from. It's pretty well established that alcohol is poisonous to all living organisms. That's why we use it to disinfect surfaces, and why I lather my hands in it several times per hour when I'm working in the hospital. It interferes with the functioning of cell membranes, and at high enough doses it causes the cell membranes to fall apart completely, killing the immersed organisms. That's the reason it is such an effective disinfectant. It doesn't take a great leap to think that something that interferes with the functioning of our cell membranes might not be too good for us.

As an interesting aside, the alcohol disinfectant I use to rub my hands in at work is perfectly drinkable, if you're desperate enough. Which is why the nurses generally remove all the disinfectant containers from the patient's room if they know the patient has an alcohol addiction.

Alcohol is a very energy dense molecule. One gram of alcohol (a.k.a. ethanol) contains 7 calories. This can be compared to carbohydrates and protein, which both provide 4 calories per gram, and fat, which provides 9 calories. This is probably why we've evolved the ability to metabolize alcohol and turn it in to energy in the first place. Those of our ancestors who could eat any fermented fruit they happened to come across were less likely to starve. Which is the reason why it's possible to subsist (for a while at least) on a diet consisting entirely of alcohol. It's also the reason alcoholics generally develop severe vitamin deficiencies - they're getting most of their energy needs met from a source that is completely devoid of other nutrients. I don't recommend.

So where does the idea that moderate alcohol consumption is healthy come from? My guess would be that the companies that sell alcohol have something to do with it. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to find that they'd seeded the scientific literature with articles supporting the healthiness of alcohol, just as the sugar industry has seeded the literature with articles supporting the healthiness of sugar. It could also have something to do with the fact that moderate alcohol consumption is part of the mediterranean diet, which we've been told for decades is one of the healthiest ways to eat.

Anyway, enough about my various preconceptions. Let's get to the science. I'm going to focus here on overall mortality, because it doesn't matter if alcohol for example were to decrease your risk of getting cardiovascular disease but at the same time increased your risk of getting cancer by as much or more. What matters is the overall effect on longevity.

The treatment of viral diseases: Has the truth been suppressed for decades?

truth
Since I started medical school in 1976, until 2020, I have heard the dogma that viral diseases are not treatable (with some exceptions such as antivirals for HIV/AIDS), certainly not with antimicrobials. My older son, a newly minted general surgeon, was educated much more recently, but with the same misunderstanding. Since viral diseases are not treatable, our only weapon is vaccination. A friend who spent his life as an academic university physician retiring in 2016 had never heard this fact either. As the "pandemic" broke out, I constantly watched and read online publications. After reading about the Chinese, Indian, and Korean use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), an antimalarial agent, against coronavirus, within an hour I found more than 20 scientific papers, written in the last 40 years on the use of lysosomotropic agents — specifically chloroquine — to treat viruses. Like Rip Van Winkle, I suddenly awoke, after decades, to a completely new medical reality.

What Moderna isn't telling us about their new mRNA COVID-19 vaccine

vaccine trials
After my review of the Pfizer/BioNTech SARS-CoV-2 virus vaccine, I was regularly asked if I would do the same for the Moderna vaccine. I will do that in this blog.

Regarding a discussion of the study into the efficacy and safety of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, I refer you to one of my previous blogs:

Comment: See here for the English translation of his blog on the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine: What Pfizer/BioNTech isn't telling us about the new mRNA COVID-19 vaccine


The study into efficacy and safety of the Moderna vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 virus was published on December 30 in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) (1). This study shows great similarities to the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine efficacy and safety study, however there are some differences. Overall, the Moderna study makes a better impression than the Pfizer/BioNTech study, as I will discuss below.
