It Is Time To STRIKE

The data is in folks, and the lies are collapsing.

Biden is due to unleash his "six point" plan (the latest iteration) to alleged "Beat Delta."

You can bet it will contain more mandates.

What it won't do is recognize these key facts, and thus will fail and will kill Americans unless he is stopped.

  • Natural immunity from prior infection is 7-13x, and perhaps as much as 25x as effective as is a vaccine.  This is the data from Israel and multiple studies.  A study from Cleveland Clinic, following more than a thousand of their employees who were infected, found zero reinfections.  Think about that folks -- zero so-called "breakthroughs" among previously-infected and not-vaccinated people.

  • The CDC ITSELF has published their own data that if infected while vaccinated you are equally contagious to someone who was not vaccinated.  Further, contrary to the original claims of the CDC and vaccine makers that the vaccines reduce or eliminate symptomatic infections in virtually every case (95% of the time) they found that 79% of vaccinated people who got infected were symptomatic.  This is statistically identical to unvaccinated persons who sometimes have fully-asymptomatic infections.  If you are vaccinated and get infected you are just as likely to infect (and potentially sicken or kill) another person, vaccinated or not, as someone who is not vaccinated.  This is formally-admissible evidence in court as it is a direct publication of the CDC!  The CDC has admitted, in print, that there is no public-health benefit from the vaccines.

  • The vaccines are failures.  This should not surprise as every previous coronavirus vaccine attempt also failed.  Yes, they may provide personal protection against serious outcomes for a few months.  The original trials may have been rigged to show that.  The manufacturers deliberately set the dose to produce antibody levels much higher than natural infection.  Why would you do that when, as with any drug, the higher the dose the greater the adverse effects?  The logical reason is that you knew you had to keep protection levels adequate for the four months of the trial and then you intended to unblind the study which immediately destroys the ability to follow up and assess the effect of the vaccine over longer periods of time.  Both Moderna and Pfizer did exactly that and the FDA let them.  Do not be deceived by outright lies in the media; if you don't know someone who's fully-vaccinated and got laid out flat on their back or killed by Covid-19, you will.  In Texas at a monoclonal antibody infusion center (where you go if infected and at high risk) the case rate between vaccinated and unvaccinated is statistically identical to Texas' vaccination rate.  At Duke University where everyone must be vaccinated this year there have been multiple outbreaks.  Cornell has a five times higher case rate now, with everyone vaccinated by mandate, than they did last fall.  There are multiple such examples and they prove the vaccines rapidly become at best worthless.  A "mandate" is thus a demand that you the take the risk of serious injury or death for no reason other than political demand

  • JAMA, the official journal of the American Medical Association, has published proof that the vaccines are at best failures and at worst may be enhancing Covid-19 infections.  Specifically, they published a study from blood donations showing the presence of alleged immunity in 83.3% of Americans.  This is sufficient to suppress any virus with an R0 of up to just under 6, and obviously since May it has only climbed.  They did differentiate between antibodies from infection and vaccination, which we can do in this case due to the design of the vaccines.  This study found 20% of Americans have had Covid-19 and are presumptively immune; the balance was from vaccination.  The problem is that if the vaccines worked the summer spike we have seen was impossible, yet it happened.  This is hard proof the vaccines do not work over time; you have taken the risk of serious adverse events up to and including death for a benefit that lasts no more than six months.

Biden will, later today, deny once again that natural infection protects you.  Yet we know, scientifically, it does and about a quarter of the population has had Covid-19.  JAMA has so-proved that 20% of America was immune by natural infection in May of 2021 and obviously the percentage has increased since then.  The CDC claimed (and still does) there were four infections at the lower boundary of their scenarios (e.g. you never went to the doctor or were tested, thus there's no record) for each Covid-19 infection that they know about.  If the PCR+ tested people all actually had Covid-19 this would have resulted in a 40-50% positive read by JAMA for previous infected and it did not.  Since there is no reason to believe the number of "low symptom or silent" infections is in fact lower than 4:1 (anecdotally -- myself, my daughter and my girlfriend all got Covid the first few days of August, we all survived and none of us went to the doctor, hospital or were tested; this is likely quite ordinary) the only reasonable explanation is that a huge percentage of the alleged "PCR+" people never had it.  Elon Musk demonstrated that these tests are horrible back in October of last year when he took four rapid tests in sequence and got two positive and two negative results -- no better than a coin flip.

If half the people claimed to have "had it" really didn't, but were screwed with quarantine orders and similar, the math from the JAMA study works resulting in 20% immune by infection as of May, and about 25% or perhaps even higher now.

Folks, one quarter, approximately, of the population of the United States has had Covid-19 and has no reason to wear a mask, take a jab, or take any other precaution unless, among that group, you are one of the very few -- 1 in a thousand -- who has a materially-compromised immune system but beat the infection anyway.  If you're in that group then any infection can kill you and might -- including the common flu.

The three key points that the Biden administration and everyone else, including employers, must be forced to recognize and adjust policy to address, are:

  • If you have previously been infected -- actually infected, not claimed positive by a PCR+ test (e.g. you got distinctively ill and/or have a positive antibody test post-infection) you are presumptively sterile immune to a degree superior to any vaccine.  Not only is there no benefit to you being jabbed but plenty of risk there is the possibility, as is discussed in this paper, that being jabbed may destroy some element of your existing immunity and place you at severe risk of injury or death from other viruses.  Fully one quarter of the American population is in this position.  Among health-care workers the percentage is almost-certainly higher as they labored for roughly a year in direct contact with Covid-19 positive people and, in many cases, known-ineffective (less than an N95) PPE and got infected.  Exactly zero of the previously-infected has any reason to take any of these shots nor wear a mask or otherwise employ "defensive" measures against Covid-19 as every such person is presumptively safe not only against infection but against potentially infecting others.  We must demand OTC, "use in home" access to the existing antibody tests so anyone who had a claimed infection can verify it themselves, in private, and know if they are presumptively safe.  These tests are available now and there is no reason you should not be able to buy one just as people buy pregnancy tests every single day.

  • If you have not been previously infected then the jabs provide only personal and fleeting protection. We do not know whether or not the risks associated with getting repeatedly jabbed escalate with each successive jab, whether if you do not get adversely impacted you are "safe", or if something in the middle happens.  You are betting your life that the adverse event rate curve is not exponential and yet there is quite-strong evidence from the first two jabs that it might be.  This must be a personal choice without coercion as if the jabs also degrade existing immunity, and there is emerging evidence they might, you could literally screw yourself into a coffin.

  • Like it or not we are all eventually going to get Covid-19 and it would be wise to prepare for that before it happensI said this back in March and April of 2020 and have never wavered from that point.  It remains true.  The correct action, and the only action, is to support immediate treatment upon detection of infection so as to keep people out of the hospital.  Do we have known effective treatments "by the NIH standards" today?  No.  But we have believed ones that are safe, and Americans must be offered the choice on a nationally-mandated basis.  "Right to Try" mandates nothing less since the medical system has nothing approved on offer.  We either take this position or many more people will die.

IF BIDEN DOES NOT, and you know he won't today, take the three points above as policy then those of us in the health care system and elsewhere who are in that 25% of America that has strong, natural immunity must STRIKE.  We were all sold a bill of LIES in America and elsewhere and the data is irrefutable.  Israel and the UK are being overrun with serious and fatal cases of Covid-19 despite being very highly vaccinated.  The claim that this is all "unvaccinated" people is a lie.

WE MUST SHUT EVERY HOSPITAL DOWN TONIGHT UNTIL BIDEN STOPS THE MASS-SLAUGHTER.

THAT STRIKE MUST BEGIN TONIGHT AND CONTINUE UNTIL THE POLICIES ARE REVERSED.

WE, the people, have ALL the power.  One quarter of the public GOING ON STRIKE will decimate the economy, the markets and every industry across the United States.  It will also INSTANTLY force closed EVERY hospital.

The administration will have NO CHOICE but to capitulate to the American people and STOP the death.

If you don't do it, America -- especially if you're a health-care worker -- every single death after tonight is on your hands.

Will be interesting to see what kind of **** they pull today/going forward knowing what we/they know now.

Luckily, my employer is not mandating jabs. One of the first questions he asked when I came back from being out with COVID (came back last Thurs) was if I was going to get the jab...I said hell now and he laughed. He's jabbed...early on, his friends were all anti-jab, but something changed. I'm thinking it was the constant fear mongering in the daily news.

Yep @Frat.

Eventually, and today may be the day, he's going to step over the line.

A QUARTER of all Americans are naturally immune to this thing. If even 3% of the population was to actively resist (not just walk out, resist) the federal government would be ****ed INSTANTLY.

If one quarter were to simply STRIKE, no violence required, EVERY federal agency and company, including every single HOSPITAL, would be closed in ONE HOUR.

Biden would have NO CHOICE but to reverse that order because in an hour people would start DYING in those hospitals, and they'd keep dying UNTIL HE REVERSED THE ORDER.

Health care is particularly sensitive to a strike because health care workers are WILDLY over-represented among the naturally immune. I'll bet the percentage is close to ONE HALF in most hospitals among line employees (e.g. nurses, NPAs, doctors, orderlies, etc.) simply because for the last year they've taken repeated assaults by this virus due to their occupation.

The people hold ALL the power and they don't need to commit a single violent act to FORCE this bull**** to end.

@Superdude - That is one of several choices; Zelenko has a protocol as well, and then there are the doctors who have found other things that appear to work, are widely-used in people for other reasons and thus have a known safety profile that is acceptable.

Agree, and at that point I'd actually believe an American when he/she says he/she is Christian. If one is not willing to kick out the money changers and toss their tables around, then one is putting one's faith in something else. IMHO as always.

I'm currently speccing and pricing out a concrete pad for a 3000g water tank, the water tank itself with potable liner, and an Aermotor (Old School) windmill.

Time to stop the motor of the country - and go back to "simple but effective".

Everyone at United Airlines should already be on strike this morning over what they are doing to employees that have been granted exemptions.

This sounds like a huge lawsuit in the making. They might could get away with paid leave but unpaid leave seems to be denying compensation based on religious beliefs.

@Karl

I agree with everything you've said here. Unfortunately, too many people simply can't financially handle doing that. You've said it before: people need to get their financial house in order. However, most haven't.

So, when something like this comes along, they have no choice but to knuckle under. And that's what the .gov is counting on.

CNN is reporting what I thought this would be about. Federal employees and employees of federal contractors will need to get vaccinated. My employer does do some DoD work. But the overwhelming customer base is commercial. I doubt I will face a mandate. If I do, I will walk. There are other system integrators that will have me (that do not have mandates).

The problem with legal action is it takes time, good lawyering and one biased judge can ruin all your good work.

I would highly recommend any United employee who has a union membership go on strike immediately! Your collective bargaining rights are being trampled both by management and the captured union thug leadership who probably are on the take from Biden and the democrats.

The one remaining component of the Constitution that's effective in America today, and which distinguishes it from all other "democracies" (DINOs really) except the Swiss Confederation, is the 10th Amendment. It's been pissed on royally but if you were to go to a Governor in a red state today and tell him you're usurping what remaining power he has, well, good luck with that.

The American people need not commit violence. Just the presumption that every household in red states is armed is enough to quell that bull****.

I've been at peace with self for a long time. This sucker is going down one way or the other and it can be very painful when the tree (USD) falls in high winds, or we can throw a guide rope around her and pull her in our direction at a time of our choosing.

It's our choice. It's always been our choice. As Glenn Frey said in Already Gone: "So oftentimes it happens, that we live our lives in chains, and we never even know we have the key."

The folks who are scared of losing material wealth by striking? They'll eventually own nothing, be very very sad, and posterity will curse them for subjecting them to infinite indenture. That's what history tells us. Denying this truth is why it's progressively gotten worse and worse. We should've stopped it in 2008. We didn't. If we don't stop it now - and peacefully - we'll eventually have a Balkanization and Third World status at BEST.

Welp, therein lies one of the many problems: a not-insignificant portion of the population gets off of the fear porn - they LIKE being afraid, and wear that fear as their best virtue. I am purposely removing myself from relationships with people I care very much about for that very reason. Maybe the only way I can get through to them is by showing them that I am serious by never talking to them again.

I am starting to believe that the worst offenders don't WANT this **** to end. They very much like how it makes them feel: dependent on someone else to make the tough decisions in life. Freedom is hard, and stuff.

I'm awaiting with both amusement and trepidation what president Skeletor has to say in this Six Points Bovine Excrement speech...

I try to roll with it but know that I'm likely to be in a fit of rage by this evening. Everything this administration touches turns to fertilizer and the lies have become so transparent even your average mouth breather should see through the deception at this point. But, mockingbird media.

Twelve years in healthcare have taught me that there are a great many caring, dedicated, selfless individuals treating patients with dignity and respect. There are also a significant number of egocentric jerks, mindless drones and passive-aggressive sadists in our midst. The majority of those are wearing white coats or spending the vast majority of their day on ZOOM calls determining "policy" and ""protocols" based on the recommendations and edicts from criminal organizations such as the CDC, NIH, FDA, et. al. It's nothing more than a dog and pony show as patients are dying from kidney failure or full on cytokine storms after 20+ days of Remdesivir and ventilation.

And then they want those of us who do give a damn to take the experimental gene therapy jabs?

**** them, let the entire system collapse. Seek early treatment and stay far, far away from hospitals!

@Frat, he will double down, because he has no other choice. He saw stadiums full of football fans mocking him relentlessly last weekend, and he can't have that. As Martin Luther said, the Devil cannot stand to be mocked. So Biden will play tough-guy, and we will all laugh at him even harder. He is a joke. This is a joke. TPTB are inept losers, and they know it, and now lots of normies are figuring it out too.

This is shifting to be no longer about "covid" if it ever was, but about the ruling class desperate to hang on to their station.

If this needs to be separated into a sub-thread, so be it.

I need some practical advice, as I anticipate these new mandates. Perhaps this will help others:

1. If there is a mandate for private business to require the vax, and I work at a company that has to adhere, is it best to resign or refuse hoping that the company will fire me?
2. If someone is primarily working from home already/not in healthcare, what ideas are there to participate in a strike? Best I can think of would be 'cancel culture'/'starve the monkey' type things. But, really, cancelling Netflix, does that do much?

What are some other 'force multiplier' type actions?

1. Financial ops (liquidating positions in various markets).
2. 'Fasting' from commerce--don't purchase anything for several days.
3. Slow walk paying bills, POs, AP.

Other ideas?
