I don't want to claim that Damar is dead (or do I?), but the way he bounded out of that vehicle without smiling for the camera is quite odd. We got a good look at his mom and little brother casually entering the VIP area,so why was he so shy?
Why no appearance on the field? Seems like that would have been pretty uplifting.
If I was three weeks out from CPR, I also don't think I'd feel like repeatedly flailing my arms, either. A cracked sternum and/or ribs take time to heal.

With zero evidence and hiding myoc data, the FDA just recommended annual boosters.

DH was likely in the box as stated. if it was a stunt, then someone would likely say it was not him, as there had to be somebody not paid off who saw a closeup and likely spill the lie on social media.
then again they could have guarded the view so well that only those paid not to say anything saw who it was.
I would also expect someone who saw and verified it was him, posted something that they saw DH, given the publicity of his case.
In any case, his charity may be 10 large now, so he can retire and manage that with a nice fat yearly salary for managing it.

I often speculate as to why the democrats did not take the exit ramp in May of '21. It would have been the politically instinctual thing to do and to place the blame for the whole thing on Trump (thus destroying him politically for all time). It would also have been every easy to do. I actually thought they were going to do it for a few weeks that May.

I believe the reasons they ignored their political instincts and did not do so was 1) too many of them get campaign contributions from Big Pharma, 2) medicine as the state religion, and 3) bureaucratic group-think and inertia (it is difficult to get a consensus to stop something once you had the consensus to start it).

Another possible reason is that nearly all of THEM got the shots and were not able to psychologically accept they made the wrong choice personally. I consider all of these reasons to be sufficient to explain this without resorting to various conspiracies being trotted about on the internet.

As I've said before, the MO of corruption is very similar to that of Freddie and Fannie during the sub-prime mortgage bubble of the aughts. I believe this is the useful conceptual model for comparison.

Apologies without restitution mean nothing and are really just gaslighting. "Sorry baby, I won't hit you again."

There needs to be forced financial restitution from those that pushed the jab, and it has to HURT.

If Adams understood statistics, all he had to do is read the Pfizer randomized controlled trial in the NEJM which SHOWED UNEQUIVOCALLY that the vaxx did not significantly reduce the risk of severe illness or death.

It is right there in the damn study that was fraudulently used to approve the vaxx -- it was approved based solely on less than a 1% absolute reduction in risk for mild or moderate symptoms only.

What is so complicated about passing on an experimental drug with no track record for safety when all it does (if the trial data is to be believed) is reduce mild or moderate symptom incidence for less than 1% of the people in the study.

Adams is a complete fool. He is not intelligent in any way. He's stupid.

Clott Adam's contrition and loss taking? I watch that episode and the following one. Not so much. I take no pleasure in mentioning it, but he really looks and sounds physically unwell. He basically argued the following day that apparently their is a skill set that we have in knowing what non-experts we should listen to in order to decide whether or not to take the vaccine.

While he sort of seems to be congratulating non-vaxers for getting it right, he belittles how they got to the correct answer.

Anyone posting here knows about a lot of the information our host posted that lifted the warning flag. I read a ton of research starting as soon as we knew a pandemic was on the loose in China. The (July or August) 21,2005 NIH report on HCQ was just one thing that made it clear there was no need for the vaccines.

Prudence is you don't take anything experimental no way no how.

For me it was obvious they were lying through their teeth.
-Natural Immunity not being as good as vaccine immunity
-Moving the definition of herd immunity
-Relative effectiveness instead of absolute effectiveness
-Masks work for an obviously aerosolized virus
-Lying about spread via droplets (thus masks work when they don't)
-The progressive messaging obviously heading towards force
-Force and vaccine passports
-censorship if it's a good idea, you don't need to use censorship

You get the idea. Clott Adams is an idiot and seems like a tiny pathetic high school class clown at this point.

My best guess is every time he opened his mouth about the vaccines people tuned out, and he was losing his audience. Were it not for that, he'd have never admitted he was wrong.

Next time he would do well to acknowledge that people actually figured it out for a variety reasons. Some may have been solely distrust of the government. But in the end it's ironic that the guy who makes a living pointing out the failures of large organizations and just how dumb they are thought they had complete understanding of cellular function and creating perfect mRNA code that would create the perfect immune response with no dangerous side effects. Yeah ok.

He said his fancy analytics got him to "a bad place", and the plebe heuristics worked.

Same kind of phenomenon applies in business with the modern MBA...

As in the old saying "Someone's got to be college-educated to be that stupid."

Scott Adam's basic problem is he is a mid-wit. Mid-wits aren't exactly dumb, they're actually smarter than average. But they're not really all that smart either. They're not smart enough to formulate their own challenging hypothesis, but they don't realize that. They're just smart enough that they've grown up being considered smart.

For someone who grew up as the smartest kid in a small school pond without much else to build on (like athletic or social success), "smart" becomes the cornerstone of their self-image. So it's psychological suicide to admit to not being smart.

In addition to being a midwit he found the thing he really IS in the upper 10% at doing: Drawing cartoons.

And.... that happens to be something that, if you are both in the top 10% and are fortunate in your timing, you can get quite wealthy. Which he did.

But that just makes it worse in that while the money is earned, its from a singular capability -- which makes that income stream both fragile and irreplaceable IF the worm turns and people decide they don't like you for some reason.

The difference between "kill" and "murder" is that murder, as a subset of kill, is undeserved by the deceased.

For me it was obvious they were lying through their teeth.

Same here, there were so many signs of it. In addition to your list specific to the clot shots, I'll add others around badmouthing treatments (Ivermectin, HCQ, hell they even badmouthed Vitamin D) and aggressively censoring any dissenting opinions. Not to mention the obvious mendacity about the origin of the virus itself.

Add to that the historical context which Karl and other's have already mentioned (repeated failures to develop a COVID vaccine, even with the impetus given by SARS-1 and MERS, the repeated failures of mRNA technology). And to that add the steady transformation of the medical profession into a marketing arm for Pharma, as well as the rapid expansion of "Vaccine Culture" (years ago when I asked our pediatrician if the then-European vaccine schedule made more sense than the much more aggressive US one, I was called an anti-vaxxer who was threatening my child's health).

And of course there were the tell-tale murmurations of Democrat politicians and their MSM PR flacks around all of this (the sudden shift from "ride the subway, go to Mardi Gras, hug a chinaman" to "lock everything down!" and the obviously coordinated talking points) that indicated something fishy was going on.

But to put those together and realize the vaxx was a bad idea required two things:

1 - enough intelligence to do pattern recognition on your own, because nobody was spoon-feeding anti-vaxx conclusions to you, and

2 - enough self-confidence to go against the mainstream.

At any rate, looking at vaxx rates, at least we now know what percentage of people are capable not just of thinking for themselves but taking responsibility for it too.

Karl. Your posts about all things COVID and vaxx related have saved countless number of lives. For those who refused research, critical thinking and sound analysis, their future health issues are on them. Many have tried to warn and we have been mocked, ridiculed and abused.

The word "anti-vaxxer" has lost any and all meaning as far as I am concerned. I had all the recommended childhood vaccines. I refuse an experimental gene therapy drug with no long term data, outcomes or results. If that makes me an "antivaxxer", then I will wear the label proudly. I am alive and healthy.

I don't give a damn about Scott Adams. He can be as arrogant as he wishes to be. Actions have consequences. He bought the ticket and it is not refundable. Let him shake his fist at the heavens and scream expletives as suddenly and unexpectedly comes knocking at his door. He was wrong. We were right. No one wins here.

Scott's young wife divorced him about a year later for reasons unknown to me.

The lovely Karen Kingston has stated that "E.D." is a side effect of the clot shots.

Anyway, it seems like Clott Adams chose poorly in more way than one.

There is something very wrong with this guy. His "apology" was just plain weird - in content, in delivery, in his affect and body language. I have seen him speak in the past and he is really off.

He places way too much credence in the "educated" and the "experts". He must have missed the complete hollowing out of higher education for the last 30 years!! Most of the people held out as "experts", like the execrable Fauci, are liars and frauds and crooks if people could just do a smidgen of research and critical thinking.

My hunting guides in Idaho, guys with high school educations, had a better grasp of the risk:benefit ratio of these things in 11/2020 than 75% of the docs I know. I value their friendship more than 99% of the MDs & PhDs I have met. And they spend all their time in the outdoors and don't know what an UBER is nor do they care. They are not scientifically trained but figured it out on their own.

That is the really weird thing that Adams kept harping on: That we, the people, should just worship at the feet of the experts and not try to figure it out on our own. And if we get it right on our own, then that it was luck.

Give me common sense of the average guy over the "expertise " of the perfectly groomed wanker with a shiny university degree any day of the week.

I re-read your comment three times before deciding to respond.

Diamond (Lynette Hardaway) passed away, not Silk.

Trump was at the funeral. Not only was he there, he sat beside Silk the entire time. He paid for it all, as Silk said (not him) in her wonderful remembrance of her sister. The entire family spoke, and they all love Trump.

She told the story of her sister's death, at home. I know she was hospitalized in November, I don't know if it was covid. I also don't know if she was vaccinated, but I do know they were anti-mandate. She talked about the suddenlies in her speech - not just talked about it, she was on fire.

I literally don't know how Trump is going to deal with this going forward. It's become the elephant in the room every time he's interviewed. I do know that it's pretty much a requirement to despise Trump here. I don't despise him, I just cannot understand how allowed himself to be so completely run over. He'd dealt with corrupt people his whole life - you don't build things in Manhattan and not understand the game. The depth of depravity and evil that drives the DC corruption has to have blindsided him.
