Caution: This is a fairly long and graph-heavy article. It also should be read while sitting down and without coffee or other beverages in your mouth where they can destroy things if sprayed all over the room, such as a keyboard or monitor.

Boy, we got problems here folks.

Remember the claim that Covid-19 killed 500,000+ Americans to excess!

Well..... did it?

I have a gift which has served me very well over the decades; it is part of what allows me to be an excellent programmer and data analyst.  I can look at a data set and intuitively know whether it has discontinuities in it and this leads me to be able to partition it up and work with it more-efficiently than most since I then know where to put my attention when it comes to analysis.  Of course I'm not always right when I see something that looks "off" at first, nobody is, but most of the time it proves up.  That same capacity means I can look at an assembly-language dump of a program and rather-quickly among a multi-hundred page green-bar listing hone in on, for example, where a tax rate that needs to be changed is likely stored and then develop and iterate on a very good set of guesses on how an unknown machine's instruction set is likely organized without a processor instruction manual -- and thus determine how to successfully change the reference and/or data.

Let's look at the CDC's own data, which is the organization telling us what happened, and see if we can find such a data discontinuity without using the Covid data claim itself.  That is, let's look at all the other most-common and thus distinctly-reported and highlighted reasons people die according to the CDC and stack 'em up .vs. 2019, which we will use as our control year, during which there was by their claims no Covid and thus which was the most-recent year we can use for reference.

We should be easily able to see the other morbidities we were all told killed people; all those other conditions that were potentiated by Covid.  Remember, according to the CDC only a vanishingly small number of people died with no other cause on their death certificate; ergo, those other causes, if they were not going to occur anyway, will be on the death certificates and materially elevated over the control year.

Indeed the CDC itself says that your base risk of death if you're under 18 is 1/50,000.  This is a very small risk; to put it in perspective the average under 18 person accepts the same risk of death by being present in automobiles over a few months time and accepts it again and again each and every few more months.  So these conditions, which are the ones that kill people often enough to be of special note and thus be individually reported out by the CDC over the last decade or so, are the ones that are most likely to elevate risk from Covid-19 to a degree that is material in overall death statistics.  This is logical, reasonable, and thus can be considered presumptively correct (in other words the presumption is that it's right; you'd have to present a sizeable body of scientific evidence to convince me otherwise.)

I remind you that there is no base risk of substance from this virus absent some other set of morbid conditions; you accept more risk than the virus presents to a healthy person, by a substantial amount, simply going to buy groceries in your car over a period of a few months.

In addition note that the late weeks in this data set are incomplete -- often badly so.  I went on a series of rants last year on my page here when people were saying the current week data said people weren't dying at all.  That's wasn't true then and isn't now; it takes time to get the reports and correlate them.

But it is for this specific reason that when you see indications of a potential signal in data sets like this you damn well better pay attention because by the time the proof is delivered, if you're doing something that can't be retracted, you will have screwed an utterly enormous number of people and there will be nothing you can do about it.

Each of these graphs has its "X" axis of calendar weeks.  The 2020/2021 line extends beyond "52" because it keeps going into the new year but again remember that the closer you get to "today" the greater the under-reporting risk because the data simply hasn't gotten to them yet.  Nonetheless, four months into 2021 we should expect that basically everything for 2020 is in fact complete.  You'll also notice that while a lot of conditions have seasonal curves to them this is not true for all, and the magnitude, where it is present, varies quite a bit.

We will start our analysis of potential comorbid conditions with cancer.  Cancer kills a lot of people.  We were told it was a major co-morbidity for Covid-19; ergo, we should see a serious cancer death increase that happened last year and into this year based on the claims of the CDC and others.

 

Huh?  How come there's no material change of any sort when it comes to the rate of cancer death in the age of Covid?  Total additional deaths were 10,928 out of 609,000.  That's statistically non-existent; a 2% increase is very-likely simply associated with our well-established demographic shift toward getting older.  If cancer makes you more-likely to die from Covid the elevation in risk is quite small -- statistically speaking it doesn't do much to make Covid-19 more deadly.

Ok, ok, sepsis was allegedly one of the ways that Covid kills you; multiple-organ failure due to septic shock.  Therefore there should be a really, really big increase in sepsis over the previous 2019 year, right?

 

Ok, there was a very small increase - 2,470 deaths, a six percent increase.  That's a fairly significant increase in percentage terms but the total number of people who die from this cause, in whole or part, is quite small.  The original weeks, when we didn't know much of anything about Covid-19, gave us a pretty big spike; about 15% over what it was the previous year, but then it settled down and, while there was a burst of associated death in the summer that was quickly attenuated too.  It appears our medical system figured out how to stop sepsis from being a major factor pretty quickly and we stopped people that had The Coof from dying, in part, from sepsis. That doesn't account for the problem.

Moving on how about my favorite one..... fat-ass disease.  You know, Dieeeeeebeeeetus, otherwise known for most people as you keep eating **** for decades and it eventually kills you.  Yeah, virtue-signaling, "healthy at any size" bull**** disease?  Yes, I know, a small (under 10%) percentage of people with diabetes are Type I and that's not their fault in any way; Type I is an autoimmune disorder and while you may choose not to manage it other than by chasing carbs with insulin the actual cause isn't something you did.  But Type II is, in the main caused by being a fat-ass, which is 100% voluntary and a decision you can change at any point.

 

Oh look!  The blue line is above the red line, and materially so!  In fact in the spring it was really nasty, good for about 700 extra deaths in one week, and it's been 300 or so on average since.  That's fairly significant but, 300 deaths a week x 52 weeks is... 15,712 corpses or a 15% increase over 2019 levels.  Hmmm...... ok, we found some of it but for 90% of the people with the condition it's a lifestyle choice and not my concern nor is it any of my responsibility to mitigate your increased level of risk if you make said choice.

Next up is Alzheimer's.  You would not expect Covid-19 to have anything to do with that, but forcing people into isolation who are progressively becoming more-compromised both mentally and physically damn well might, essentially killing them through neglect and "I don't give a **** about you" style prison treatment.  We didn't do any of that, did we?

 

Covid-19 didn't kill those people, our governments, our mayors, both Presidents and we did.  We're bastards and we slaughtered innocent old people through intentional neglect because we refused to implement isolation protocols for the workers in the facilities and find ways for those who loved and care for these older Americans to have said care, comfort and contact with their loved ones.  We're monsters and they died as a result of us, not from a virus.  But even so.... it doesn't account for anywhere near the rest of the dead people.  Every one of them is sad, but it is what it is.  This accounts for 14,567 additional dead bodies, an 11% increase.  Some of that is also likely demographics but you can bet we murdered some of those folks -- we just didn't do it with a virus.

Next up -- Influenza!  You know, our old buddy the flu?  Remember, we were told the flu "disappeared."  Did it?

 

Heh wait a minute..... there were lots of flu deaths in 2020 weren't there?  In fact it was only a bit below baseline this year so far, although in 2021 it looks to be running low.  Then again, was I noted, beware the latest weeks; they're behind, so I can't draw any firm conclusions.  But this much is clear: Did Covid-19 actually kill those people in those other weeks or did the flu kill them?  Good question; remember that dying with something doesn't mean you died of something.  Did we autopsy those people to find out which was which?  You know damn well we did not and the two are quite-closely related.  The total?  5,095 additional dead bodies, a 9% increase.

How about COPD/Emphysema and related things?  You'd think those folks would have gotten hammered.  After all, someone with either condition has severely-compromised oxygen transport to start with because their lungs are screwed, and we know that people choke to death with Covid, right?  So sufferers of both diseases should have gotten it straight up the pooper and fallen like flies.

 

Wait, WUT?

The death rate from these two diseases in the spring and early summer tracked below 2019?  And then again as we went into the winter "death season" from Covid, again, it tracked materially below the baseline?  Would someone care to explain this one?  Indeed, there were 1,965 fewer deaths, a 1.27% decrease.  Since when is COPD, emphysema and other related lung disorders protective against a respiratory virus?

I'll answer that for you -- when they're using inhaled steroids like Budesonide and those drugs stop the virus from causing serious harm.  So tell me again why we haven't been handing that out to people who get Covid at the first sign of trouble, given that one of the obvious highest-risk groups of people died less often over the last year despite a raging pandemic respiratory virus circulating everywhere?  Gee, wouldn't it have been nice if we used the data we already had via natural experiment across roughly 20 million Americans with an extreme morbidity bearing on respiratory infection to stop people from being killed?  We had this data before the fall and winter surge and deliberately refused to use it.  Indeed it was that data that prompted the Australian-led study which we refused to sign onto and promote here in the US.

I remind you that if we had done so, and handing that readily-available drug out to anyone testing Covid positive had stopped the death equally as well as it did in the COPD/Emphysema group all of the EUAs would have been illegal to issue and there would be no vaccines or need for them as the death toll would have returned to baseline or below immediately and permanently and the pandemic would have been over.  This was an intentional decision as the data was right under everyone's nose all the way back to the summer months of 2020 including Fauci, Azar, the FDA and the staff of the CDC.

I know, I know!  We must have misclassified a bunch of people and they're in the "other respiratory disease" bucket!  That is definitely where the excess death showed up.  It has to be; this is a respiratory virus and so that only makes sense.  Whew, we found it!

 

Uh, well, maybe not.  There were only 1,838 more dead people in that classification, a 4% increase.  Meh.

Ok, ok, I know, I know, seriously immune compromised people, such as those with Lupus, all dropped like flies.  Remember, that's a serious comorbidity too according to..... everyone who is a so-called expert.  So all those people died.

 

Oh wait.... they're not dead at rates higher than were seen in 2019?  WTF?  Heh, wait a minute -- aren't most of those people taking Plaquenil?  You do know what Plaquenil is, right?  Hydroxychloroquine, otherwise known as HCQ.  You have to wonder; there's exactly zero evidence that Covid nailed them at all and most of them are in fact using that eeee-viile drug that the CDC, FDA and Pharma all say doesn't work.  Well if it doesn't work and being immune compromised is a risk factor how come there is nearly zero excess death among those people?  Either being immune compromised is not a comorbidity or HCQ looks to be pretty damned protective of people with a serious comorbidity.  Duh.  Yes, there were 1,818 more dead people.  Count 'em folks, they did not drop like flies; that resulted in only a 3% increase for a condition that was expected to be a death sentence if infected by Covid-19.

The most-likely explanation for their lack of death is the drug a huge percentage of them are using.

That would be two drugs now validated by natural experiment and intentionally ignored by all of these goons eh?

All right, all right, I know, I know..... heart attacks got lots of people.  It's gotta show up somewhere; it must be heart attacks.

 

Hmmmm.... yes, there was a really, really ugly spike in the first few weeks wasn't there?  About 3,000 of them one week, which is really awful.  That, times 53 weeks, would be..... about 150,000 corpses.  Except.... it didn't stay that bad, did it?  No, but it was elevated, and materially-so over the entire year.  This is problematic though because it goes to what I was talking about the science now saying that spike protein itself is pathogenic, and in the form of causing blood clots.  Clots, of course, cause heart attacks and then the question will become are the vaccines going to cause lots of heart attacks too?  Better keep an eye on this one because that elevation level is very material, unlike all the rest of them we've seen so far.  And here we have real death: to be specific, 47,973 more corpses resulting in a 7% increase, so whatever those folks are taking it sure didn't help.  THAT is an ugly number especially considering that heart disease is already up there with the worst of the "why you died" list.

Let's talk strokes; they're nasty too in the general sense.  So did they take a similar hit?

 

Uh, yeah they did.  A couple hundred extra dead people a week is nothing to sneeze at and also bears watching in the coming months because once again you can't tell much about the most-recent weeks yet.... or can you?  In 2020 we did have 12,404 more fatal strokes and that too is an ugly number of slightly larger magnitude in percentage terms than for heart attacks, an 8% increase.

What's the common thread between heart attacks and strokes?  Clotting.

And finally, the "aw crap we don't know what it was" column:

 

Ummmm.... Yeah.

Note that in 2020 this accounted for a grand total of 9,635 more bodies.  But in 2021, well.....

Now a good amount of that disappears back into the other classifications over time, so setting off nuclear alarm sirens isn't quite called for yet.  But anyone who tells you that there's no safety signal when you have a very large spike that is now nearly four months old and unresolved into other cataloged conditions has rocks in their head.  That's just flat-out bull**** considering that we now have over a year's worth of experience with Covid-19.

Yes, there's backlog, there's late reporting and there's updated reports that come in over time.  All true and maybe that finding will all disappear back into the other charts over the next six months or so.  But by God it had better, because if it does not and the so-called "authorities" ignore it there's your evidence, correlated exactly with when we started stabbing people en-masse, that people were dying of those stabs and if it continues then the presumptive linked causal factor is going to be established since there is no other material "unknown" that has materially changed during that time period.

I still can't find 500,000 excess deaths caused by Covid in 2020; they're simply not there among the diseases the CDC reported out and since the base risk is 1/50,000 even across half the population being infected we could only account for 3,000 deaths.  It is thus clear that if in fact Covid-19 has killed anywhere near the number of people claimed those other morbid conditions, all of which are serious diseases standing alone, have to account for the increase between them.

Indeed the most-common, by far (40% of additional deaths by disease) were due to heart attacks and the next was diabetes at 13%.  Between diabetes and heart attacks, both almost-exclusively due to lifestyle choices and thus your personal decisions, 53% of the excess 120,475 deaths are accounted for.  If we add in strokes, which also are largely lifestyle-related then we're at about 2/3rds.

Among those diseases that are allegedly "the biggest comorbid factors" I can find only 120,475 more deaths that Covid-19 may have contributed to and which included those diseases as a causal factor in total.  Did Covid-19 cause all of those 120,000 additional deaths or were they caused by, in the case of diabetes, strokes and heart attacks for example, the additional 50lbs that a material percentage of people put on during the lockdowns (and over 20lbs on average!) from eating takeout trash full of fast carbs and being involuntarily cooped up in their homes?  We do not know so this can only describe an upper boundary or caused mortality -- not a lower one.

This analysis doesn't mean even more people didn't die with Covid, but an alleged "Covid" death that wasn't accompanied by one of the CDC's specifically-called out diseases.  The CDC "selects" these specific categories and ICD codes, I remind you, because they're particularly large percentages of the whole among diseases that kill people.  When the CDC says that only a few thousand people died of Covid alone this data is rather interesting wouldn't you say?

After all being shot while Covid positive, or ODing, dying in a car wreck or wrapping your motorcycle around a telephone pole in no way implies you died of Covid, does it?  To so-imply or state is to deliberately deceive the public and inculcate fear; it is a lie.

Yet the media and government have in fact said it did because they have repeatedly claimed more than four times the number of people who the CDC links to specific diseases in fact died "of" Covid-19.

The CDC's own data proves they lied.

Further, they claim that we had "no evidence" for the effectiveness of repurposed drugs; that's also bald lie in that there are at least two which are specifically used en-masse by millions in the group of people in two of these morbidity buckets and both of them saw materially less death than was expected.  In other words we had very strong observational evidence across a huge body of people that these drugs are protective and did nothing with that information.  Had we acted and had those drugs proved effective the EUAs for vaccines would have been illegal, there would have been no need or desire for vaccines at all and a huge number of people who are currently dead would still be alive.

To be blunt: By the CDC's own data the FDA, NIH, CDC, Fauci and others lied and as a direct result people died.

Do you think they're being honest about the safety of the jabs given these facts?  After all it's your ass since they made sure you couldn't sue or prosecute anyone if they get caught lying again.

The CDC's published source files from which you can reproduce these results on your own are found here and here.

PS: How long before, if the "unknown" data verifies, Mr. Puddinhead is forced to go on TV and eulogize all those who died due to taking shots predicated on a bogus premise, specifically one crafted before we had the science on the fact that the spike protein itself is pathogenic, as is now known -- and thus any such attempt would inevitably harm or kill a significant number of people -- more than the non-morbid percentage who die from natural infection, since their body is able to prevent the infection from becoming systemic.

Otherwise entitled: 'Warp Speed' Only Exists In A Fictional TV Series and Movies, You Murderous Pricks

Thank both Trump and Biden for this, along with a ravenous, I don't give a flying **** medical and pharmaceutical industry that has only one thing in mind -- profits.

Remove the only check and balance against that -- if you really screw the pooch you'll get sued and might lose -- and you're going to kill a lot of people.

Science requires time.  Time to form hypothesis, time to do the studies, time to record the results, time to think about what you observed, time to write it up, time to publish it, time for others to read and think about it ("peer review"), and time for others to iterate over that process, attempting to replicate or refute what you claim you found.  Science is not a set of bald claims, it is a process, and wearing a white coat in no way makes the claims more or less valid.

All of the "warp speed" EUA'd vaccines were constructed from a piece of the spike protein not determined independently but "given" by China.  It was simply assumed that without the "N" part of the viral protein it could not cause disease independently.

There was no evidence for or against this belief; it was simply assumed without a single shred of experimental evidence at the time and the entire premise of developing alleged "vaccines" that are designed around having the body deliberately produce said protein was, on that basis, put into production and used.  Our government bought into this blind faith and even went so far as to issue blanket legal immunity to everyone involved if it turned out to be wrong.

That was wildly stupid and I said so at the time.  There is in fact never a presumption that introducing a foreign thing that is not usually present into the body will not cause disease; indeed even introducing an excessive amount of something already present frequently causes disease.

Then there's the legal definition of a "vaccine", found in some state legal codes and all over the scientific literature which is: "A whole or fraction of a virus, inactivated or attenuated, that is introduced into the body to provoke an immune response for the purpose of providing durable immunity against infection by the original pathogen."

Note that nowhere does the definition provide for causing the body to produce said fraction itself.  That's because it was never done before as a means of "vaccination" and thus every one of these injections currently available under EUA does not meet the legal definition of a vaccine; they are, legally, a therapeutic which, again by definition, is a substance that is introduced to alter, cause, enhance or suppress a biological process with the intent to treat or prevent a disease.

All of this stupidity is on top of the other elements of stupidity and known risk which we also ignored and I have previously written about; specifically viral evasion from non-sterilizing vaccines and the actual promotion through evolutionary pressure of more-virulent strains along with the very real possibility that the Chinese, or some other adversary, could target said "given" protein via a bioweapon and use it to kill huge percentages of the Western World wholesale..

Moderna, I remind you, has been trying to produce therapies using messenger RNA for about a decade.  Very lavishly funded, this little biotech is not new to the market but had never managed to get past safety problems in the past.  This is not uncommon; most biotech approaches fail.  As an investor and trader who has followed this segment of the market closely for a long time and occasionally placed bets on some of them I'm well-aware of many of the blow-ups and occasional outright collapses; Theranos anyone?  Or how about Dendreon, which allegedly had the answer to metastatic prostate cancer? They went bankrupt; seems the truth is that they didn't.

What is Moderna's history in this regard?  Just like many others they have repeatedly tried and failed.  But their story is especially troubling in that it did not just include just non-working therapies; several of theirs appeared they might indeed work but they kept hitting safety problems:

In order to protect mRNA molecules from the body’s natural defenses, drug developers must wrap them in a protective casing. For Moderna, that meant putting its Crigler-Najjar therapy in nanoparticles made of lipids. And for its chemists, those nanoparticles created a daunting challenge: Dose too little, and you don’t get enough enzyme to affect the disease; dose too much, and the drug is too toxic for patients.

Uh huh.

Too toxic eh?  What happens when the thing you produce itself is toxic -- and you didn't know this was what you were going to wind up with because you didn't bother looking in the interest of speed?

Would anyone who isn't a Mengele-level monster have gone down the road of attempting to concoct something to make the body produce the "S" (spike) protein if they knew in advance that the spike protein itself, standing alone, was pathogenic -- that is, specifically, it caused abnormal blood clotting in the body?

You see, it appears that is in fact the case.

Here we study the effect of isolated SARS-CoV-2 spike protein S1 subunit as potential pro-inflammatory inflammagen sui generis. We investigate the potential of this inflammagen to directly interact with platelets and fibrin(ogen) to cause fibrin(ogen) protein changes and blood hypercoagulation. We also determine if the spike protein may interfere with blood flow, by comparing naïve healthy PPP samples, with and without added spike protein, to PPP samples from COVID-19 positive patients (before treatment). We conclude that the spike protein may have pathological effects directly, without being taken up by cells

Oh.

****.

Even now, a year and change into Covid-19, this is not well-understood; that's not surprising since it takes time to perform the process of science.  That paper is in pre-print; only time (peer review) and then verification (repetition) by others will tell us whether the conclusion is correct or not.

That conclusion is, if true, horrifying.  In short the entire approach to alleged "vaccines" was wrong; while generating antibodies against that protein would be expected to be protective deliberately hijacking the body's cells to produce it is also directly pathogenic -- that is, it can make you sick by causing clotting that could bite you either immediately or down the road.

Every one of the current EUA'd vaccines does this.

All of them.

If this gets into your coronary arteries it could quite-easily provide the basis for an immediate or future heart attack.  It could also occlude circulation in the brain and produce an occlusive stroke that is non-responsive to clot-busting drugs.  Both events have a very high probability of killing you.

That we are recording CVT incidents now, and yes, they are showing up in all of the current vectored vaccines whether using mRNA or viral vectors is, given this paper, a big fat flashing red light and 5-alarm warning siren that IMHO should prompt immediate revocation of the EUAs for everyone except those at very high risk of mortality from Covid-19 itself.

While this study also raises the alarm for the potential consequence of natural infection that too is an indictment of what we've done up until now, as I've repeatedly pointed out for over a year.  Sending people home without treatment of any sort, such as Budesonide, Ivermectin, even HCQ and aspirin is flat-out gross malpractice bordering on depraved manslaughter.  An infection with Covid-19 may produce this very same pathogenicity and we knew that back in April of 2020 when people started showing up in ERs with elevated d-dimer numbers (which are evidence of clotting abnormalities somewhere in the body) yet those patients had no evidence of prior cardiac or other thrombotic disease.  We've known how to treat that for more than five decades and yet we continued for a full year doing nothing for those with early indicators of severe disease either because we didn't look or didn't treat, allowing the virus to rage through them until they were choking to death, all in the interest of promoting EUAs for an alleged "vaccine" pathway that now appears, on the evidence, to be manifestly dangerous.  We intentionally sacrificed a half-million Americans by, in the main, refusing to treat them immediately on presentation of symptoms even though we have multiple drugs and therapies we had and continue to have reason to believe may work.

It's quite possible this same problem presents with inactivated whole or parts of the virus too; there's no way to know at present because, once again, we did not test it.  In short it may be the case that there is no safe vaccine possible against spike-protein containing viral strains of this type; we must instead treat early as doing our level best to keep that part of the virus out of your circulatory system is the best we can do and all other approaches are systemically hazardous.

Let me be clear on the risk this paper presents and its implications with the medical facts on these disorders: Heart attacks and strokes kill close to three-quarters of a million people a year in the United States and for those who do not die, roughly another million a year, both events usually produce permanent disability to at least some degree.  Even a small elevation of the lifetime risk will wildly overrun the death count from the virus within a few years and that elevation will be permanent and continue every year until those persons at said intentionally-elevated risk expire whether by this cause or some other.  By the time this shows up in the numbers compiled by the CDC as regards causes of death it will be ridiculously beyond too late to do anything about it.

A 10% elevation in the base risk, for example, means over 75,000 more dead Americans every year and over 100,000 permanently disabled forevermore as long as we keep using these vaccines, and for decades after we stop until they are cleared from the population.  If it doubles the base risk (and it might) then we're talking close to a million excess fatalities and well north of a million permanent serious disabilities each and every year, most of which will not be blamed on the vaccines, at least not initially since there is likely to be a material lag in time between the injection and the heart attack or stroke.  This risk is wildly more than the risk that natural infection presents even without attempted mitigation of the infection since even if you believe all the "case" rates reported via PCR (which we know are BS as many alleged "positives" are false) only about 10% of the population got Covid across an entire year's time and that incidence will fall due to natural immunity with each passing year.  By contrast the risk presented from the jab is not 0.1 over the last 12 months and falling every year as it is for natural infection it is 1.0 since you took the jab and if you start taking booster shots every year you will make another roll of that die.

The goons in government and pharma may well have caused the most-serious public health disaster ever in the history of the United States and across the western world.  We must stop it right now for all except those at seriously-elevated risk from the virus itself for whom it is probably a good gamble on balance, especially when it comes to children and healthy young adults, even though a huge percentage of the harm is now assured until these risks are fully understood and quantified.

To Fauci, the FDA, the CDC, Pharma, virtually every hospital, Trump, Biden and the rest: You are all evil, money-grubbing cock-gobbling monsters and Hell awaits for what it appears you have done, along with your refusal to immediately halt the expansion and promotion of this bull**** among healthy Americans until it is fully understood and quantified.

Ah, the worm turns.

So as we all know Duante Wright was shot "accidentally" by a police officer.

It was not an accidental shooting, it was a negligent discharge of said firearm by the admission of the officer herself.

She has stated she intended to pull a taser and instead pulled her handgun.  That's negligence -- period.  It appears she's been charged with manslaughter which would be facially appropriate given her admission she did not intend to pull a firearm.

We could have a discussion about why you're asking for it when women are allowed to be patrol officers but heh, we can't have that debate in a "cancel culture" society, even though this is based on metabolic facts and differences between the sexes in their response to seriously-stressful situations -- that 1 in 1,000 women are the exception doesn't change that, by the way.  But nooooooo!  Diiiiiieeeeeversity is more important than competence.

Oh, and speaking of which, that's why this guy was on the street.  Intentional, direct incompetence across hundreds of people.

That's right, just like the jackass who shot a Marshal in Tampa a number of years ago and which I reported on, the actual chain of failure here may have ended with an officer who should have never been in such a job simply because suitability is just not there through no fault of her own, but it began with the so-called "justice system" in the first place and thus primary liability lies there.

Duante, you see, appears on the public record to be a common Dindonuttin.  He had an open charge from over a year prior in which it is alleged he produced a handgun and attempted to rob a woman of $820, choking her in the process.  The robbery attempt failed, he was arrested, and was bonded out awaiting trial on that charge.

That's all in order and reasonable up to that point, except after bonding out he was arrested again in July for possession of a handgun, which is problematic because being under 21 he could not have legally purchased it (so where did he get it?), having a pending felony charge even if he was 21 he couldn't have legally purchased it either and in addition it was a violation of his terms of release.

The bond was revoked but he was not re-arrested and thrown in jail as a result of the revoked bond nor was he tossed in jail on the new firearms possession charge.

Nearly a year passes without the cops doing their damned job and tossing him back in the clink to await trial on the original charge nor on the now second set of charges.

It is in this environment where he is driving a vehicle with an expired plate, gets pulled over, and ultimately is shot after resisting arrest while the officer tries to handcuff him.

But again folks: He got pulled over for an expired plate.

In other words the worthless cops both at the state police and local level, who knew where he lived and how to find him, did nothing about his revoked bail for nine months.  They left him on the street despite his refusal to honor his bond conditions throughout the entire fall, winter and into the spring.  They could have thrown him in jail when caught with the gun while being out on bond which was a separate and distinct offense all on its own and did not do so at that time either.

Again: They intentionally let an accused violent felon run around who had been caught violating his bond conditions resulting in the revocation of said bond -- they let him live openly and notoriously as a fugitive in the community for nine months.

Yeah, the entire putrid state and city cop departments need to be douched all right, but it's not because the cop shot the guy. It's because the entire ****ing set of so-called "law enforcement" agencies at both the city and state level is worthless and refuse to arrest and jail persons accused of violent felonies who, after being bonded out violate the terms of their release and thus demonstrate through their actions that they have no intention of complying with the law or abiding the decisions of the courts.

"Serve and protect"?

Bull****; every single dollar paid to every single one of them was stolen from the residents of the state and city at gunpoint, and every single one of them is an armed robber for having done so.  After all every single one of them is strutting around with a gun on their hip and demands said money for services they intentionally did not provide despite a clear duty to so-perform.

Call things what they are.

So now the FDA has "paused" the J&J Covid-19 vaccine because of, as they claim, just six cases of thrombotic disorder.

That alleged "six" is a ******ned lie; this is a hell of a lot more common than that even though one in a million is outside of the parameters that are acceptable for a disease that only gets you 2/100,000 times.  Why?  Because you're not guaranteed to get a virus but you are guaranteed to take the risk when you are stabbed with it.  As such while it sounds like the vaccine is wildly safer than the virus that's false because infection probability has to come into the picture too, plus whatever mitigation and treatment options you may have.  Of course if you're wildly obese or otherwise compromised the math is different but anyone who believes that a mere six incidents are involved here has rocks in their head, particularly when the mRNA vaccines are associated with over 2,000 deaths at this point in time and yet they have not been similarly "paused."

It appears the root cause has been identified and it's deeply troubling.  This is one of those "you *******s should have known this was stupid" sort of thing, but of course you'll never hear that.  The good news is that if you get hit immune globulin appears to be a potential pathway out of what may otherwise wind up being a trip into a coffin but the bad news is that the symptoms of this problem tend to be diffuse until you're in deep crap and nobody is identifying potentially-susceptible people prior to stabbing them.

Do remember that when Covid-19 kills it almost-universally does so with a presentation of clotting in places where it should not occur, and that elevated d-Dimer is a very reliable indication that you're going to get hammered.  This was reported in the first few months of last year and I noted very early on that it was happening, it fully explained why ventilators were worthless since without gas exchange due to clotting you can ram however much oxygen into the lungs and it will do nothing or worse, cause physical damage and embolisms, and that getting to the bottom of that and stopping it when detected was key to management of severe cases that were at risk of becoming fatal.

In addition preventing those events through early treatment modalities was obviously essential as once you get into that sort of dysregulation of your body's systems you're in trouble and the odds of dying are very high.

The evidence is, by the way, that the mRNA vaccines have a worse safety profile than the J&J shot does.  Who remembers the healthy doc who got one of the mRNA shots and had the same thing happen to him?  Go look up the death numbers associated with Covid19 vaccines yourself in VAERS.  Do remember that VAERS, because it is a voluntary system and the hospitals are incentivized to code anything they can as "Covid-19" because they get paid a bonus for doing so provides great incentive to find some way not to call a vaccine death an actual vaccine death.  Nonetheless there are a crap-ton of reports, roughly a hundred times as many as are found for flu shots that we give morbid and otherwise not-in-great-shape people every single year.

The last time I checked dead is dead and the entire point is not to be dead.  Further, it is gross malpractice by any reasonable definition to refuse to give a patient any sort of treatment on an early basis for a given disease, deliberately doing nothing until the person is on death's door.  This is only gotten away with legally because in the early days Trump's HHS secretary invoked an emergency law provision that immunizes hospitals and doctors from lawsuits for anything they do or don't do in the treatment of Covid-19.  Oh and our wonderful, life-affirming President now, Mr. PuddinHead, has not withdrawn that exemption.

Why not?  Well gee, we can't cut off the $30,000 "bonus payments" to hospitals for people with Covid, right?  I mean all those *******s heroes might get sued for refusing you Ivermectin and Budesonide when you get Covid if that was to be withdrawn and you died.  That would be great horrible and we must keep the death fear going so as to get you to take a jab that might kill you too, and for which they're also immune if it does.  After all there is only tens of billions of dollars each and every year at stake from this pack of lies since they're already telling us this will be a ritual we shall be expected to partake in every six months or year forever into the future.

It ought to be obvious that playing parlor tricks on your body's cells to produce the "spike protein" -- not introducing it directly into your body which is incidentally the actual definition of a vaccine, but tricking your cells to produce it instead (and which has now been magically redefined to count as a "vaccine") is inherently dangerous.  You'd think that a decade or more of both animal and human trials, with very close follow-up on every single human so-exposed, with all of the data written up and presented to the world in public would be required to know if this sort of malarkey has unknown but severe danger associated with it.  Among other risks doing this could result in cells in very unpleasant places (e.g. your heart, spleen, etc.) taking up said "instructions" and being damaged, leading to an immune response in a very bad place that could injure or kill you, or it might lead your body to target your own cells since by definition the cells that take up said "programming" and produce the protein are diseased.  If either of those things happen then the very same thing that kills you when Covid goes badly might kill you as a result of the vaccine either immediately or somewhere down the road when challenged either by the original virus -- or some other as yet not-identified stimulus.

Can you know this approach is safe in just a few months time?  Nope.  You might think it is but what happens if you're wrong?  Unlike a drug that is dosed daily and thus can be stopped if you begin to experience bad side effects you can't un-do the effects of a shot.

I note we've never done this before hijacking the body to produce proteins on purpose that we want the immune system to attack but heh, a little testing is plenty good enough, right?  Animal studies on a comprehensive basis to detect trouble (which can take years) aren't all that important nor is a decade or more of follow-up with a small cadre of volunteers and so we'll stab a few people, present incomplete data to the public and claim that "it works 100% of the time in preventing death and severe disease!" then release it and stab 100 million Americans or more, only to find that it really doesn't work as well as claimed and that certain side effects, including ones that might kill you and are suspiciously like how the virus kills if it gets you badly, were "missed."

Speaking of things being intentionally missed where are the animal trial results?  Normally when you develop a drug of any sort it is first tested in animals.  Said animals, after being checked for production of the desired response are then sacrificed and autopsied progressively over time along with the controls (which did not get the drug) to see whether there are signs of injury from the drug.  Those animal studies weren't stopped as soon as the human trials began, were they? If they weren't stopped where are the results?  Why can't I find and read them for each of these vaccines?  What evidence do we have that even at the animal level causing the body to produce the "S" (spike) protein through said parlor tricks does not cause direct and serious harm?

Then we follow it up with people screaming about requiring said shots, like, oh, University Provosts, ball parks and corporate "leaders", all of whom ought to consider that their families and themselves are not immune by law nor from the mob that may come after them if this lack of proper testing and verification turns into a widespread problem.  Go ask the folks up in Minneapolis whether said alleged "law" has stopped Burn, Loot and Murder there.  What could happen if people with an IQ greater than their shoe size decide that they're not going to take "you can't sue anyone over this and nobody's going to jail; her life is expendable so we could all virtue signal and make money" for an answer when their 20 year old college-student daughter dies as a direct consequence of this coercion?

At the same time we also continue to ignore the mountain of evidence that early treatment works; this was known back in the first months of 2020 but of course if you have any early treatment that works then you cannot get an EUA for a vaccine and this would interfere with people making money since they'd have to run said full and normally-expected set of tests first.  Of course if you ran the full set of tests you would have also found the problems and thus those people who died from the jab would still be alive and since the therapies in fact do work most of those who died of Covid-19 would also still be alive and, without the fear generated by a big body count that can be splayed all over the media there'd be no market for said vaccines either.

But heh, what's the problem with 500,000 dead people in America when it produces a nice profitable many-billions line of recurring business?  Yes, not once, they're all saying this will be an annual or even more-often thing once you start with the jabs.  If a few more die because we didn't bother with all the testing that is supposed to happen before we roll out vaccines who cares?  Nothing can get in the way of either the fear porn or profit.  We must tell people to wear useless face-diapers and shut things down, never mind so-called "experts" at Vanderbilt screaming about "variants" that they claim are more-deadly when that's complete bull**** on the facts as well, using said lie as a cudgel to coerce people to get stabbed with an experimental vaccine that certainly appears to be quite dangerous.  While J&J, Pfizer and Moderna along with the ******* who personally jabbed you in the arm may be immune from lawsuits neither Vanderbilt or said Jackass Schaffner is when they present misleading claims that wind up resulting in injury or death.

Never mind the rank refusal to tell people that if you ate yourself into a blob for 20+ years it's not my problem that it made you 1,000x more susceptible to severe disease from something that is otherwise usually no more serious than the common cold.  We're talking about a disease that, among non-morbid, is roughly as hazardous as Chicken Pox in a child -- a risk anyone older than about 30 was deliberately exposed to by their parents, author included.  You want to stuff your face that's fine but the consequences of doing so are yours alone and it's neither my business nor concern if that decision kills you when a virus comes around.  Try to make it otherwise and I'm going to remove every single obesogenic thing from your life by force; if you attempt to stuff a gun up my nose then expect one up yours in response.  You have the right to eat yourself to death just as you have the right to drink or smoke yourself to death but you do not have the right to demand I do a single thing to mitigate your risk because you made that choice and it is long past the point where Americans should tell everyone exactly that -- and back that declaration up with whatever turns out to be necessary.

Oh, and if you have the right to eat yourself into a blob why can't I demand Budesonide and Ivermectin from the local doc-in-a-box  or just show up at a pharmacy window if I think I have the Coof and get them everywhere in the United States in every single case?  Why are drugs that cost under $10 all over the world and have safety profiles well-documented over decades of use so damnably hard to get with many being refused even if they ask?  Why do people keep having to sue to get treatments that prove effective when used?  If its my body and my choice when it comes to all manner of other things, whether eating myself into an obscenely fat blob, smoking like a 707 on take-off,  drinking vodka straight out of the bottle like a Soviet-era soldier or aborting a fetus that I don't want to take time off my "lifestyle" to bear and raise why is it that some ******* has the ability to tell me that I cannot have a drug that I believe will arrest the progression of a disease when it is in the financial interest to the tune of $30,000 for said ******* to see me wind up in the hospital or dead?

These people and the institutions that fester all over this nation in the so-called "medical mafia" must be destroyed.

Is not 500,000 dead Americans enough for you to throw a flag on this crap and stop it?

Oh, and while we're at it **** Fauci; in my view he ought to be in prisonThat SOB funneled $7 million into the Wuhan lab to evade a ban on gain-of-function research in the United States that Obama put into place in 2014.  That's plenty of reason standing alone to support the belief that bat bastard may be directly responsible for this pandemic; that he did both fund and greenlight "gain of function research" at the Wuhan lab and that they were working with viruses that are genetic predecessors of Covid-19 are all facts.  Never mind Judicial Watch uncovering him entering into confidential agreements with China in the early months; exactly what they were concealing has still not been disclosed and China continues to refuse to allow any outside party to have access to their raw data.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Oh my, what happens when the fear porn folks bury the facts in an appendix?

It only works until they get caught when someone reads said appendix.  Which of course the "Woke" and fear-porn peddling media will never do.  Unfortunately for them I'm the sort of guy who stays up all night to read 1,000 page bills before they're voted on like Obamacare, and I was tipped off to this one, so I went digging -- and indeed, there it is.

On page 23 they got caught.

This is is a very large post-EUA vaccine study in Israel, which has been wildly stabbing people now for a few months.  And it contains a very sobering set of statistics if you read the appendix.

It's also notable what's not included.

So let us begin.

First, this is roughly a half million people per arm -- vaccinated and control -- or about one million people in total.  It therefore has a lot of statistical power, just on size.  That's very good news because you need large numbers to get meaningful results when the outcomes in each arm are relatively rare.

Further, Israel is somewhat unique, in that they mandate membership in a "health fund" but let you choose one.  This is the data from the largest, covering ~50% of the nation's population.  As such it's remarkably free of the sort of self-selection bias that is in a lot of studies, and because Israel has electronic records for all of them the data quality is pretty good.

They also "matched" the control and study arms, which is good too.  What this means is that as someone dropped out from one cohort for any reason, such as getting vaccinated, they had to either be replaced or their matching pair dropped. 

So let's start here:

In the absence of systematic periodic testing for SARS-CoV-2 among asymptomatic people in Israel, documented asymptomatic infections do not account for all asymptomatic infections, and likely cannot accurately capture vaccine effectiveness for this outcome.

No ****?

But who gives a crap about asymptomatic infection?  Nobody with a brain.  It produces only social and personal good; both personal immunity and contribution to population immunity.  There has never been an epidemic in history during which asymptomatic cases have been material in the spread of disease and this is no exception; even JAMA now admits asymptomatic transmission in the highest-contact environment outside of medical settings, households, almost never occurs (0.7% probability .vs. 18%). Do recall that literally every "public mitigation" step including masks, closing schools and businesses and more centers around the lie that people without symptoms transmit the virus efficiently yet this is now known, by published, direct study to be false just as it always has been false in the past.

In other words, just to repeat, JAMA itself now admits there is no reason whatsoever to issue any mandate against non-symptomatic people -- and there never was any reason to do so.  Such persons are less than 1/25th as likely to spread disease when in a confined space with other people for tens of hours at a time.  Every person and official promoting and issuing such "mandates" including masks, closing schools, distancing and similar deserves to be in prison right here, right now and be asset-stripped to their underwear.  They had no evidence behind their actions and the foremost medical journal in the United States has admitted this is and was the case in print.

Now let's look at the magnified infection curve for symptomatic infections.  There is a significant bend in the curve.  But notice something; only 0.9% of the unvaccinated people got infected and the spread is not the entire 0.6 -> 0.9; there was divergence right from the start which is a problem because until the person who gets the vaccine builds antibodies nothing happens.  But it did.

This strongly implies either behavioral or matching problems between the populations.

Let's continue.

Looking out the 42 days (when the study terminated) we find another oddity; there is no material bend in the curve among unvaccinated persons.  Yet we took half a million in one of the health systems alone, out of four, out of the pool!  Or did we?  The data is that we did not; we may have taken them out of "documented infections" but they're spreading the virus, which means they're mutating it too.  How do we know this?  Because that immune pressure on spread would otherwise be seen in the unvaccinated cohort to a very significant degree and it was not.

That's a problem.  In fact it's an extremely serious problem because under any reasonable interpretation it means that sterility did not occur with vaccination.

Note that Salk made the same mistake with polio.  Fortunately Sabin figured out the danger in what was being done and saved the day with OPV, which is sterilizing.  Had he not evasion and promotion of more-virulent strains may well have resulted in a "super polio" outbreak over time.  We are now deliberately ignoring that which Salk and Sabin taught us decades ago and if we get it up the chute as a result, and I remind you there is emerging anecdotal reports of it occurring alreadywe will deserve it.

An even more-interesting factor came in, however, with hospitalization.  In short the evidence is that the unvaccinated stopped getting sick enough to go to the hospital!  So why would you now get vaccinated?  After 35 days both curves flatlined and the vaccinated one was about 4-5 days in front of the unvaccinated.

Did the vaccine do anything to actually stop hospitalization or did the virus simply run out of vulnerable people?

The evidence is that it did the latter; the vulnerable got vaccinated first and the rest are not vulnerable and thus didn't wind up in the hospital.  In other words widespread vaccination beyond the vulnerable conferred no benefit.

The same thing happened a few days later with "severe" Covid-19, which is expected; a case that deteriorates takes a few days to do so.  Thus, among the unvaccinated the virus had burned itself out.  This is point #2 in support of that explanation.

And then comes the kick in the nuts: The same thing happened with death, lagged 10 days which is approximately how long it takes to die from symptom appearance.

THAT'S ALL THREE ENDPOINTS, ALL OF WHICH CONCUR.

CASE CLOSED.

There will be people who will argue this is a "stunning success" based on the narrative in the study.  They're lying and the data in the appendix conclusively proves it.

Once the vulnerable people got vaccinated, and those people went first in Israel as happened here in the US as well all further benefit to society as a whole disappeared.  The not-vulnerable who were left in the unvaccinated cohort were never at risk of dying in the first place, nor of hospitalization, so they got nothing useful from the vaccine.  All they got was risk from the shot itself.  Nobody gives a crap if you sneeze and preventing sneezing is not worth the risk from a shot.

Worse, the differential in deaths between the two over those 42 days was only 19 souls; which across a million is not a very large number, and all of those were in high risk people who, as time went on, got vaccinated.  The rest of the cohort who remained unvaccinated through the end of the 42 days had no harms from being unvaccinated as they stopped being hospitalized, getting a severe case and dying before the end of the 42 days yet they had not been jabbed.

You literally could not come up with a better argument for not vaccinating anyone other than those at significantly elevated risk than this study; it shows conclusively that the "unvaccinated" did not suffer at all if they were they not in the high risk categories; those who were "unvaccinated" and got hit with hospitalization, severe disease or death were all high risk people and as they were removed from the pool all three of those outcome stopped even though cases did not.

No, everyone should not get poked; there is no discernable benefit shown here for those not at specifically high risk.

If you take the jab voluntarily and are not at said high risk on the data you're stupid and deserve what you get.

Oh, and what else is missing?

All-cause mortality in both groups, and the study folks had that data just like they had the rest since everything is electronic.  Those 19 lives that were saved -- how many were lost in that vaccinated group .vs. the non-vaccinated over that same time and what offset against those 19 souls must be applied due to other causes of mortality that were associated with getting jabbed?

After all, dead is dead -- right?

SO WHY WASN'T THAT REPORTED WHEN, IF IT SHOWED LOWER ALL-CAUSE MORTALITY AMONG THE VACCINATED IT WOULD GREATLY SUPPORT THE SAFETY ARGUMENT?

If you're not pissed off enough by the above watch this: https://www.bitchute.com/video/RqyafQHKY9Iy/ 

Youslob has deemed it "against community rules" and removed it; facts just are, but if they damage someone's fear porn control schtick they must, of course, be censored.
