The World for People who Think


The Pandemic Modellers Have a Conflict of Interest Problem

Modeling-paper Mafiosi
John Edmunds is on top of the world.

He's one of the modelling-paper mafiosi.

The London, U.K., professor is a key government advisor via his membership in powerful committees and organizations. Edmunds also was a co-author of one of the primary modelling papers that have been used to convince the masses that vigilance against Variant of Concern (VOC) B.1.1.7 should be their top priority.

Edmunds co-wrote an influential January 21, 2021 report that concluded, "There is a realistic possibility that VOC B.1.1.7 is associated with an increased risk of death compared to non-VOC viruses."

In addition, Edmunds speaks often to reporters about the deadliness of the new variant. He tells them a "disaster" would happen if lockdowns are eased soon, because what first must be done is to "vaccinate much, much, much more widely than the elderly."

Follow the Funds

Edmunds also happens to be the spouse of someone who, at least until April 2020, was an employee of GlaxoSmithKline and held shares in the company. (Although Edmunds doesn't disclose this in any of his media interviews that I've read and watched.)

Comment: Ferguson was recently interviewed by The Times, in which he said: "There's something very nice about pandemics"

Also by Rosemary Frei: Is it true that the new variants are very dangerous?


Donald J. Boudreaux: "I Can't Stop Wondering About Covid-19"

thinking man ideas creativity light bulb inspiration
Like so many people, I can't stop wondering about Covid-19. But unlike many people, my thoughts aren't on the physical dangers that this disease poses to me. I long ago stopped being unusually worried about me becoming infected with SARs-CoV-2.

To be clear, I'm no Covid denier. I understand that I can catch this nasty disease and that it might do me in. But the same is true for the ordinary flu. And so too might I be done in by riding in an automobile. So too might I meet an early death as a result of my habit of drinking each evening a few glasses of wine (and sometimes one too many glasses).

Given my age (although 62, I'm young compared to Covid's chief victims), my relatively good health (I daily go to the gym), and my slimness (I'm six feet tall and weigh 150lbs), I see no reason for me to worry about me catching Covid. I simply, truly have no special fear of this disease. I shake hands with people willing to shake. I hug friends and family members willing to hug. I dine indoors at restaurants without a second thought and remove my mask the moment I'm seated. And I would go about my business without a mask altogether were I not required to wear one in order to enter stores and restaurants.

My incessant wondering about Covid is instead about what other people think, or refuse to think, about Covid - the other people being those who, after reading the previous paragraph, will accuse me of being either appallingly selfish or inexcusably unaware that the coronavirus spreads through humans coming into close physical proximity to each other.

Objective:Health - Be Afraid: Is the Fear of Covid Making Us Sick and Crazy? UPDATE: Censored by YouTube Yet Again!

O:H header
Ever wonder how this covid pandemic is affecting your mental health? Not the virus, but the constant fear of the virus? Locking us in our homes, feeding constant fear of a lurking virus through the mainstream media, only seeing others outside your family with their faces half-covered, the zealously encouraged view that all your fellow humans are disease carrying death vectors - there is no question that this overreaction to an overhyped virus is taking its toll on our psychology.

But the thing is, having a less than stellar psychological framework has a direct effect on our physical health. The central nervous system is directly connected to the immune system, providing a suspected pathway to exist between thoughts and emotions directly affecting the robusticity of our immune response. In other words, negative thoughts and feelings can actually make us sick.

There's also the concept of the "nocebo effect," sometimes referred to as the evil twin of the placebo effect, which has been talked about in the literature since the 1960s'. It's the well documented phenomenon where someone's negative expectations can lead them to manifest negative symptoms, even if they're not exposed to the treatment (or the virus). You might be sick if you feel sick, but then again, it might be your head playing games with your body.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we look into the psychological consequences of the covid "pandemic" - how the constant fear and disconnection is affecting our collective mental (and therefore physical) health.

Comment: YouTube has been cracking down on any Covid dissent, although they seem to be selective in what they censor as previous shows have had what could be termed as 'more critical' content. As it is our 2nd strike on the channel, our days on YouTube are likely to be numbered so please be sure to follow us on lbry.tv or Brighteon!

No, The CDC Did Not Admit That SARS-CoV-2 Has Not Been Isolated

Comment: The following article was published two months ago in response to claims circulating on alternative and independent media sites that 'SARS-CoV-2 does not exist because it has never been isolated'. This claim is false, and as Jeremy Hammond explains in this article, it is harming, not helping, valid criticism of governments' authoritarian responses to the Covid-19 pandemic...

coronavirus microscope

False claims fueling the widespread delusion that SARS-CoV-2 doesn't exist are harming efforts to combat the authoritarian responses to COVID-19.

For months, I have been continually confronted with the belief held by many within my own community of readers that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, has not even been proven to exist.

I would much prefer to spend my time fact-checking the self-proclaimed "fact checkers" that are censoring factual information while hypocritically misinforming the public. But there's one claim in particular that I've been faced with repeatedly that really needs to be put to rest because it is serving only to legitimize the "fact checker" narrative that opponents of authoritarian "lockdown" measures are spreading misinformation.

The specific claim is that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has admitted that SARS-CoV-2 has not been isolated — in other words, that it has not been proven to exist.

The "smoking gun" document in which the CDC ostensibly admitted that the virus hasn't been isolated is titled "CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCov) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel". It is published on the website of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Comment: For more details (and images) of the large array of 'isolation' methods that show - clearly - that SARS-CoV-2 is indeed an actual virus (along with all its mutated variants), see here:

Sigh, yes, the 'COVID virus' is real

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - January 2021: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

Winters are becoming harsher and lengthier, impacting basic infrastructure and crops around the world. It's clear that we are not properly prepared for the coming ice age.

The most impactful winter snowstorm in the US so far caused a rapid decrease in temperature and dumped snow from the Midwest to the Northeast, affecting hundreds of millions. More than half the US was covered in snow and some cities received up to 19 inches. The US is seeing winter storm after winter storm with no relief.

Iowa got hit by a new record snowfall this month with 19 inches dumped in Des Moines, the snowiest January for the last 130 years. Extreme snowfall also buried Texas and the Mississippi Valley, leaving 150,000 people in the dark.

15 inches of rain, floods, up to 100 inches of snow, mudslides, a massive landslide, and wildfires hit California. Again, extreme weather is disrupting the lives of millions of Californians contributing to a 'mass exodus' from the state.

Europe and Asia also experienced one of their most intense winters in recent years, with temperatures in some areas dropping as low as -46.2 degrees Celsius.

Storm Filomena hit Spain this month, producing the coldest night for at least 20 years when the temperature plunged to -25C in Molina de Aragón, and Teruel, and a record snowfall since 1971 killed half a million trees in Madrid. All this was accompanied by a supercell storm with winds of 150 km/h in Lleida, flash floods in the south, and a M4.4 earthquake in Granada. Two meteor fireballs were also recorded over Galicia and Granada.

Siberia again broke the global cold temperature record this month, with -58°C at one locality, meanwhile, Mongolia faced one of the most extreme winters on record with temperatures as low as -50 C.

South Korea got hit by the season's harshest weather as a cold wave with heavy snow and strong winds brought traffic to a stop and grounded planes. The temperature in Seoul dropped to -16.1 C, with a wind chill of -25.3 C.

Many meteor fireballs were witnessed or recorded during the day this month, while a small meteorite fell on a house in Indonesia. A sign of increased cometary activity?

Heavy rains and floods continued to hit east and southeast Asia, with millions affected. The worst flood in half a century hit Malaysia prompting the evacuation of 50,000 people, while Chennai, India recorded the highest rainfall for a January day since 1915.

MindMatters: Wokeism: From Ideology to Mask of Sanity

wokeness 1984
Wokeness may appear crazy to its critics, but underneath the surface is something even more sinister than most are willing to admit. As an ideology with wide appeal, critical social justice theory has served its purpose as the lockpick to western civilization, as James Lindsay has put it. It has opened the gates to the highest political power, and every aspect of western culture. But what has entered through the gates?

Today on MindMatters we look at Wokeness through the lens of ponerology (with current examples, e.g., the recent GameStop controversy). For psychopaths, ideologies serve as the perfect trojan horse for taking power, and wielding it. Wokeness - with its cynical views of human nature and explicit authoritarianism - is just another variation on the theme of the twentieth century, which saw the rise of communism and fascism. Once the ideologues have taken power, the ideology ceases to bear any resemblance to its original form. Rather, it becomes a mask for pure pathology. And by that time, it's usually too late to stop it.

Objective:Health - Protecting Yourself Against Vaccine Side Effects

O:H header
We've discussed vaccines a number of times on this show. We've also discussed the new mRNA vaccines a number of times. Our own strategy has always been to avoid these vaccines as long as it is humanly possible.

But what if its not possible? The PowersThatBe™ are making it increasingly difficult to avoid the vaccine and still lead a (relatively) normal life, and they're only getting started with their restrictions. We don't know what's coming, but we may be looking at a future where the shot, at least for some, is unavoidable.

Today, regular Objective:Health host Elliot Overton shares with you a protocol against possible vaccination side-effects based on his deep research into the mechanisms behind the shot and what it's doing in our bodies on a micro-biological level. Because the vaccines are so new, this is all theoretical, but it may represent our best defense against side-effects in a situation where the shot cannot be avoided.

Join us for this incredibly valuable presentation of information!

Carlson: 'American Establishment is Now at War Against Its Own Population'

tucker carlson populism
Tucker Carlson warns Democrats' suppression of dissent, divisive rhetoric will lead to scary repercussions. Labelling multiple millions of Americans 'terrorists', establishment spokespeople are signalling intent to launch a 'war on domestic terror'.

They won the presidency! They won the Senate! They ousted a 'dictator'! So why are they doing this?

They know that they are illegitimate rulers, and they know that the American people know that they are illegitimate leaders. This knowledge eats at them, spurring them to institute increasingly draconian measures because - in a self-fulfilling prophecy - they fear losing control.

Gold Seal

Suck It, Wall Street

In the fall of 2008, America's wealthiest companies were in a pickle. Short-selling hedge funds, smelling blood as the global economy cratered, loaded up with bets against finance stocks, pouring downward pressure on teetering, hyper-leveraged firms like Morgan Stanley and Citigroup. The free-market purists at the banks begged the government to stop the music, and when the S.E.C. complied with a ban on financial short sales, conventional wisdom let out a cheer.

"This will absolutely make a difference," economist Peter Cardillo told CNN. "Now, if there is any good news, shorts will have to cover."

At the time, poor beleaguered banks were victims, while hedge funds betting them down as the economy circled the drain were seen as antisocial monsters. "They are like looters after a hurricane," seethed Andrew Cuomo, then-Attorney General of New York State, who "promised to intensify investigations into short selling abuses." Senator John McCain, in the home stretch of his eventual landslide loss to Barack Obama, added that S.E.C. chairman Christopher Cox had "betrayed the public's trust" by allowing "speculators and hedge funds" to "turn our markets into a casino."

Fast forward thirteen years. The day-trading followers of a two-million-subscriber Reddit forum called "wallstreetbets" somewhat randomly decide to keep short-sellers from laying waste to a brick-and-mortar retail video game company called GameStop, betting it up in defiance of the Street. Worth just $6 four months ago, the stock went from $18.36 on the afternoon of the Capitol riot, to $43.03 on the 21st two weeks later, to $147.98 this past Tuesday the 26th, to an incredible $347.51 at the close of the next day, January 27th.

Comment: Sadly, they're soon going to learn that the stock market, like the ballot box, will forevermore be stacked against them. This GameStop Rebellion is - and will hopefully continue to be - great fun, for a while, but we're in the Age of Tyranny now, and pathocrats HATE being made fun of.

On CNBC talking-head Sorkin's palaver about r/WallStreetBets investors 'hurting pension funds that invest through hedge funds', commentator Louis Rossmann has reported on the fact that the day traders' 'reckless activity' has so far saved at least one major pension fund:


The Inanity of RNA Vaccines For COVID-19

Quote from Denis Rancourt, IUHM
© Unknown
Quote from Denis Rancourt, IUHM
The present article is a follow-up of Compelling Evidence That SARS-CoV-2 Was Man-Made published in June 2020, which I encourage people to read first. In it, I concluded as follows:
It's probable that by the end of 2020, like every year, a flu epidemic will emerge. This virus will, conveniently, be deemed a close relative to SARS-CoV-2, maybe with 'extra terrifying features'.

But there will be no need to despair because, by this time, the authorities will have prepared a vaccine. That's one of the reasons why hydroxycholoroquine was lambasted and banned. If a safe and effective treatment already exists, who is going to accept a rushed and unknown vaccine? A vaccine that will allegedly protect people against COVID-20, but will in reality be designed to 'cancel' the beneficial changes induced by the mutated strain of SARS-CoV-2. [...]

It's probable that the vaccination won't be mandatory. Remember that the authorities are now "kinder and gentler". Instead of brute force, the authorities are more likely to use moral blackmail - "Get vaccinated to protect others!" - combined with social blackmail - "No vaccine = no job, no shopping, no travel, no socializing!" Basically, you're free to choose between the vaccine passport or a life sentence in an isolated cell.
Here we are 7 months later. As suspected, new variants have appeared, manufactured COVID-19 deaths are 'piling up', the vaccine passport has already been adopted by several countries and vaccination campaigns have been launched around the world.

In theory, medicines, vaccines included, are approved and used because their benefits far exceed their risks. In this sense, the ideal medicine would display zero risks and total effectiveness against an uncured and deadly disease. We'll see in the present article that the COVID-19 vaccines, particularly the Pfizer vaccine, is pretty much the opposite of the ideal drug. It is dangerous, ineffective and targets a benign disease that already has known effective and safe treatments.
