Mysterious outbreak of brain infections in Nevada kids, doctors believe it's linked to lockdowns

Las Vegas, Nevada

There has been a spike in rare and serious brain abscesses in children in and around Las Vegas, Nevada
Health officials are sounding the alarm over a spike in rare and serious brain abscesses in children in and around Las Vegas, Nevada.

Experts at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are investigating the spate of cases, while doctors across America say they are also seeing a rise in cases.

The number of brain abscesses in minors tripled in Nevada last year, shooting up from an average of four or five a year to 18.

Dr Taryn Bragg, a pediatric neurosurgeon and associate professor at the University of Utah who treats the cases, told CNN she had 'never seen anything like it' in her 20 years' experience.

Physicians are not sure what has caused the rise, but said it could be due to weakened immunity to infections due to Covid measures such as lockdowns.

Comment: Lockdowns indeed inflicted unimaginable harms, but they should also be recording whether any of these children were also injected with the experimental covid jabs.

The TGA grants approval for full registration to Moderna's Covid vaccine

Therapeutic Goods Administration 1
Today, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) announced that it has granted approval for full registration of Moderna's Covid vaccine, SPIKEVAX. This is the first Covid vaccine in Australia to receive full registration - the others remain provisionally approved.1

From the TGA media release,
"As with all medicines, the TGA's assessment was rigorous, independent and based on evidence. The safety and efficacy of SPIKEVAX is also supported by real-world use in millions of people worldwide, providing reassurance about the safety of these vaccines. Vaccination remains the most effective way to protect yourself from serious disease, hospitalisation and death."
This is the product that currently has 7, 442 reported adverse events in DAEN (Australia's VAERS or Yellow Card database). 36 of these entries are reported deaths.

This largely unknown psychological phenomenon may be driving men to become trans, experts say

Autogynephilia, or a man's condition of being sexually aroused by the concept of himself as a woman, is a driving force behind male-to-female transgenderism, according to some experts, but activists and a leading transgender medical group have been reluctant to acknowledge the issue.

The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), the leading transgender medical organization, removed the term from its standards of care between 1998 and 2001, and proponents of the transgender movement have decried the term as inaccurate and stigmatizing.

Autogynephilia, or AGP, undercuts the narrative pushed by proponents of transgender ideology that gender transitions aren't sexual, and a significant proportion of transgender people are heterosexual men who are sexually aroused when they present themselves as female and wear women's clothing, researchers and transgender people have argued.

Comment: This disorder should be an individual issue between a patient and their doctors and therapists. It certainly should not be a 'social issue', especially when it comes to children's development. The West has reached a rather extreme point in time when this issue has come to replace the critical global problems that are being left in a rather closed sphere of destructive control.


Face masks may raise risk of stillbirths, testicular dysfunction and cognitive decline due to build-up of carbon dioxide, study warns

pregnant face mask vaccination
Face masks may raise the risk of stillbirths, testicular dysfunction and cognitive decline in children, 'explosive' new research suggests.

A review of dozens of studies on face coverings suggested they can cause mild carbon dioxide poisoning when worn over long periods.

The German academics who carried out the research believe masks create a pocket of dead space between the mouth and mask, which traps the toxic gas.

They say the build-up of CO2 in pregnant women's bodies could cause complications for the unborn fetus. They point out that CO2 also contributes to oxidative stress, which can affect cognition and cause testicular issues in men.

But independent doctors have questioned the conclusions of the study — which never directly looked at health complications and mask use, describing the link as 'unlikely'.


Vaccine injuries have become the dominant theme of German reporting on the mRNA jabs

Last month, German Health Minister and renowned virus pest Karl Lauterbach gave a remarkable interview in which he denounced "exorbitant" pharmaceutical profits, deplored "dismaying" vaccine injuries, and called for the manufacturers to set aside funds for those who have been harmed. He did so amid a growing wave of reporting on vaccine injuries in the German press - a wave which his statements have now turned into a tsunami. In the weeks since, vaccine injuries and side effects have become the dominant theme of German press coverage on the jabs, from local papers to national media.

It's been a serious shift, the likes of which I'm not sure has unfolded in any other country. To give you a taste of it, I've assembled a representative selection of stories from the last eight weeks or so, in roughly reverse chronological order. As you read through them, remember that these are all links to publications read by ordinary people; I've excluded all media with overt Covid-sceptic associations.


Covid vaccines must be suspended and a full inquiry launched into how they were approved, say experts

MHRA covid
COVID-19 vaccines must be suspended owing to the level of reported injuries and deaths across all age groups and a full inquiry launched into the MHRA, the regulator which approved them, a group of experts has said.

In a groundbreaking new report sent to every member of Parliament, the Perseus group - a team of experts from the fields of medicine, pharmaceutical regulation and safety management - has set out in detail the numerous concerns raised by experts globally about the vaccines and the specific concerns about the U.K.'s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Authority (MHRA) responsible for giving them the green light.

"MHRA announced that it has morphed from 'watchdog' to 'enabler'. Would anyone be concerned if that was said by the Office for Nuclear Regulation, the Civil Aviation Authority or the Defence Safety Regulator," Perseus group spokesman Nick Hunt said.

The evident lack of interest in post-rollout issues with the COVID-19 vaccines was highlighted as particularly shocking.

Before the rollout in December 2020 the MHRA promised a rigorous "four-strand proactive vigilance" of Covid vaccine safety. But freedom of information requests have revealed that very little of this work is being done. The single report supplied from the "Targeted Active Monitoring" strand was 15 months old, from August 2021, the report says.

Hunger Profiteers, Granny Killers and Skin-Deep Morality

Nigeria Hunger
Today, a fifth (278 million) of the African population are undernourished, and 55 million of that continent's children under the age of five are stunted due to severe malnutrition.

In 2021, an Oxfam review of IMF COVID-19 loans showed that 33 African countries were encouraged to pursue austerity policies. Oxfam and Development Finance International also revealed that 43 out of 55 African Union member states face public expenditure cuts totalling $183 billion over the next few years.

As a result, almost three-quarters of Africa's governments have reduced their agricultural budgets since 2019, and more than 20 million people have been pushed into severe hunger. In addition, the world's poorest countries were due to pay $43 billion in debt repayments in 2022, which could otherwise cover the costs of their food imports.

Last year, Oxfam International Executive Director Gabriela Bucher stated that there was a terrifying prospect that in excess of a quarter of a billion more people would fall into extreme levels of poverty in 2022 alone. That year, food inflation rose by double digits in most African countries.

By September 2022, some 345 million people across the world were experiencing acute hunger, a number that has more than doubled since 2019. Moreover, one person is dying of hunger every four seconds. From 2019 to 2022, the number of undernourished people grew by 150 million.


The $5 Covid-19 treatment that could have helped save thousands of lives

If the authorities had heeded advice from those with the most profound knowledge of the mechanics of COVID-19, the pandemic could have been handled more adeptly, according to an immunologist, one of perhaps a few hundred in the world with that specific expertise. Instead, he said, his and others' voices were silenced.

Shortly after news of the SARS-CoV-2 virus emerged in Wuhan, China, in early 2020, Vojtech Thon, clinical immunologist and professor at Masaryk University in the Czech Republic, started examining tissue samples of infected patients. His goal wasn't just to understand how the virus infects people but mainly to see the immune response dynamics that would protect a person. He focused on the mucosal system in the nose, mouth, and lungs — his area of expertise.

His findings were striking and ran counter to many of the public health narratives heard worldwide.

He concluded that:

1) Early treatment was possible, available, and critical.

2) Pandemic mitigation measures were misused and, in many cases, counterproductive to fighting the disease.

3) Vaccines were rolled out improperly and presented to the public inaccurately. They couldn't achieve sterilizing immunity, that is, elimination of the virus before it could multiply in the body.

Virtually all of this was known at the pandemic's beginning or at least by late 2020. Yet his attempts to make his expertise available to authorities were largely shut down.


45 times as many deaths after COVID shots in just 2 years compared with all flu vaccine-related deaths since 1990, data show

Covid-19 Vaccine
The authors of a peer-reviewed meta-analysis of national and international COVID-19 vaccine adverse events during the first two years of the rollout said their findings highlight the importance of reevaluating public health policies that promote universal mass injection and multiple boosters for all demographic groups.

The cost of injecting healthy people, "especially children," with a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine "outweighs any claimed though unvalidated benefits," according to researchers who analyzed adverse events data from more than 10 regulatory surveillance and self-reporting systems during the first two years of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
"Our meta-analysis of both national and international vaccine adverse events emphasizes the importance of re-evaluating public health policies that promote universal mass injection and multiple boosters for all demographic groups," said the authors of a peer-reviewed study published this month in the International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research.
