☕️ CLUSTERED ☙ Thursday, December 21, 2023 ☙ C&C NEWS 🦠
And we're back! New Epstein documents to be released; new category of gene vaccines; SADS celebrity heart doctor; SADS stiff person; SADS cluster at Army base; Brownstone article shows progress; more.
Good morning, C&C, it’s Thursday — only four days left till Christmas! The good news is I’m back at Childers HQ in Gainesville. The bad news is due to a travel hiccup we got in late and today’s post is a little on the shorter side, but don’t worry, it hits above its weight class.
Your roundup today includes: judge finally orders release of more previously-unseen Epstein documents; a whole new kind of vaccines arises — targeting healthy human tissues; ironic SADS celebrity cardiac scientist; SADS stiff A-list celebrity; SADS cluster of Fort Jackson drill sergeants; and Brownstone starts to ask the right questions about media silence over pandemic problems.
🗞💬 WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY 💬🗞
🔥 ABC ran a story Tuesday headlined, “Federal judge orders documents naming Jeffrey Epstein's associates to be unsealed.”
In 2015, Virginia Giuffre sued Ghislaine Maxwell for civil damages for grooming her to into the deep state’s blackmail industry of sex workers. The lawsuit was settled for an undisclosed amount in 2017, and three years later in 2020, the judge ruled that much of the previously-sealed case documents should be unsealed.
Fast forward three more years of litigation over the unsealing, and what looks like a real deadline has been set in January. The judge allowed several final weeks for a last chance for anyone whose name appears in the record to file a sealed objection. Some undisclosed number of parties have already successfully convinced the court to redact their names, for one reason or another.
It’s still unclear exactly what might be unsealed. Commenters expect to see some new deposition transcripts — including Ghislaine’s — which in turn may finger other people connected to the case and shed more light on how the blackmailing operation worked. From what I can tell, there is no reason to think Jeffrey Epstein’s Client List will be included. So we can expect something like a ten-yard conversion, not a touchdown.
💉 If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a vaccine. The UK Daily Mail ran a curtly-headlined story yesterday which seemed to acknowledge how ridiculous this is getting: “Now scientists develop a vaccine to lower CHOLESTEROL.”
Vaccines for everything! The article explained that daring University of New Mexico researchers genetically modified an attenuated virus to include human DNA for PCSK9, a protein molecule made in the liver that travels through the bloodstream and raises LDL(“bad”) cholesterol.
Once injected with the modified virus, the body creates antibodies targeting the human PCSK9 protein as well as the virus.
This “vaccine” gets your immune system to do the work by attacking the protein needed to make LDL cholesterol. In the old days, we’d call that an autoimmune response, but these days it’s called Science. Best of all, according to the Mail, the shot would only need boosting once a year and cost about $100. (Researchers got the idea from much more expensive drugs that inhibit PCSK9 — different from statins).
There’s a new gold rush, except this one comes in a needle and rhymes with “Maxine.” The covid shots opened up a brand-new frontier in pharmaceuticals: the genetic engineering of viruses to prompt an immune response targeting virtually anything doctors don’t like. You’ve already heard of the ‘cancer vaccines.’ But why limit ourselves to targeting diseases? Healthy but unwanted tissues can be included in there too.
For example, you won’t need testosterone suppressors; just engineer a virus with a bit of testosterone in it and let the immune system do its job. How about a fat vaccine? A vaccine that targets headaches? Eye floaters? Unwanted back hair? Underarm sweat? You name it! They can now make a “vaccine” for it, no problem. It’s a CRISPR for everyone! Vaccines for healthy human proteins.
What could go wrong?
Hang on … what if we could just get a little tissue sample from Anthony Fauci…? Or maybe Robert L. Peters? The possibilities are beyond exciting.
💉 Irony alert! The establishment just lost another one of their own. Medscape ran the story yesterday headlined, “Renowned Cardiologist Jean-Philippe Collet Dies at 59.” Before he suddenly and unexpectedly died AT HOME on December 15th, Dr. Collet headed up cardiology at Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris — one of the largest and most prestigious hospitals in Europe (founded in 1612). Collet was variously described as: a “renowned” myocarditis expert, a “powerful force in cardiology,” an “inspiration,” a “cutting-edge trailblazer,” a “prolific clinical researcher,” a “beloved doctor,” and even a “genius” — a true med/sci celebrity.
During his career, Dr. Collet published nearly 500 articles, 45 book chapters, and 200 abstracts. International scientists and doctors who knew him were quoted as being “shocked” and “devastated.” Dr. Collet had a big heart, maybe too big, there at the end. He was kind, well-loved and always kept a full clinical schedule on top of his research activity.
Dr. Collet’s patients often “showered him with gifts.”
“What really impressed me was that he was famous, but at the same time, always a person that came to you trying to have a conversation,” said Dr. Davide Capodanno, MD, PhD. “It was very easy to speak with him. And when you realize how famous he was and how friendly he was, this approach tells you how great he was as a man.”
Dr. Collet may have been a genius and a great man, but the jabs are the great equalizer. On July 12th, 2021, France’s President Macron mandated the shots for all healthcare workers who had any contact with patients:
The healthcare mandate wasn’t all; France stacked mandates on top of mandates. Around the same time, France also passed a vaccine passport for theaters, cinemas, sports venues, festivals, cafes, bars, restaurants, shopping malls, and long distance trains. In other words, Dr. Collet did some up-close and personal cardiac research.
Dr. Collet is survived by his wife, Hélène, and their children, Antoine, Alexis, and Olivier. We pray the survivors receive peace.
💉 Entertainment Weekly ran a story Tuesday headlined, “Celine Dion has 'lost control over her muscles' amid battle with stiff-person syndrome, says sister.” The Canadian pop mega-star, 55, announced a year ago she’d suddenly and unexpectedly been diagnosed with stiff-person syndrome, an ultra-rare, perfectly horrible neurological autoimmune disease with a deadly prognosis.
Basically, over weeks and months victims’ muscles slowly freeze up until they can’t eat, move, or even breathe. In the meantime, they are plagued with involuntary muscle spasms triggered by ordinary environmental stimuli like somebody honking a car horn down the street or slamming a cabinet door shut.
There is no known treatment effective for the “one in a million” disease.
Was it just bad luck? Genetic predisposition? Fact-checkers acknowledged Celine got the shots but have consistently appealed to ignorance, claiming there is no evidence the singer’s career has been terminated due to a vaccine injury.
But is that true? Is there really no evidence? One year ago in the December 9th C&C I offered the following evidence: first, Pfizer oddly included Stiff Person Syndrome as one of the known “post-authorization adverse event reports” in its regulatory documents:
Drugmakers are required to monitor adverse events after emergency-use authorization. The long list of adverse event reports is basically a roundup from all official sources that Pfizer could find. It doesn’t say who or what connected Pfizer to the “one in a million” disease, but someone did. So, that’s evidence.
Second, for reasons we understand even better this year than last, mRNA vaccines are connected to a spectrum of autoimmune diseases:
Since Stiff Person Syndrome is also an autoimmune disease, this study connecting the mRNA shots with a wide list of autoimmune conditions is more evidence of potential involvement. And that’s just using last year’s evidence. So.
💉 C&C is now adding clusters to the SADS reporting criteria. Our first example: South Carolina’s WIS-TV 10 ran a remarkable story Tuesday headlined, “Second Fort Jackson drill sergeant found dead on post in less than 2 weeks.” One Army base. Two young drill sergeants. Two sudden deaths. Two weeks.
Actually, we can make that three, if we expand to six months.
Died in car. On Saturday, decorated Staff Sergeant Zach Melton, 30, a drill sergeant with the 1st Battalion, 34th Infantry Regiment, was “found unresponsive” in his car after he failed to report for work. Army EMS pronounced Zach dead on the scene.
Died in bed. Two weeks before on Saturday the 9th, officials found Allen Burtram, 34, a drill sergeant with the 2nd Battalion, 13th Infantry Regiment at Fort Jackson cold in his bed. Officials said unit members found Allen after he failed to report for work, just like Zach Melton.
No causes of death have been released for either soldier, of course. But Fort Jackson’s commanding Brigade General Jason Kelly assured reporters that “several” investigations “into the specifics of each of these deaths” have been opened, and those “investigations” will continue forever, don’t worry about that. Army officials did say there was no foul play and the two deaths were “not connected.”
Not connected by anything you could see, anyway.
Died during exercise. The two recent deaths were the second and third young, healthy drill sergeants to die suddenly and unexpectedly at Fort Jackson this year. On June 12th, Sergeant 1st Class Jaime Contreras, 40, was also found dead, after he failed to return from an outdoor survival training course. And, no cause of death has been released. Since June.
What are the odds of three young, healthy drill sergeants dying mysteriously, suddenly, and unexpectedly in six months at one Army base? Asking for a friend.
🔥 Brownstone’s Jeffrey Tucker penned a short but thought-provoking counter-revolutionary piece yesterday titled, “This Silence Is Not Golden.”
Mr. Tucker marveled at how the Establishment seems to be sweeping the pandemic’s totalitarian excesses — and all the resulting casualties — right down the memory hole:
Hardly anyone can be found today who defends what happened, except perhaps in the most sheepish terms, and nearly always with the obviously false proviso that “We just didn’t know then what we know now.” That seems like a shabby excuse for what’s resulted. These days – again, mostly in private conversations – hardly any apocalyptic prediction seems beyond the realm of plausibility.
The public silence over this entire subject is beyond bizarre. There are political conventions happening all over the country. They are attended by thousands. Everyone is rallying about and for something. But the Covid response hardly comes up. When it does, it is quick and perfunctory conversation and quickly dropped.
Hardly any revelations about Big Tech censorship, excess deaths, contaminated shots, misused funds, or corruption of public officials and academics get media attention at all. To many of us, what is happening and what is revealed daily amounts to a parade of scandals, except that the national media doesn’t care in the slightest.
Mr. Tucker was frustrated by the bizarre media silence, but I take it to be evidence of progress. He said hardly anyone defends the pandemic response anymore except by arguing ignorance. He’s frustrated that they aren’t calling for heads on pikes yet, and I get that. But look how far things have come, how the Overton window has shifted.
Basically, at this point, the government’s pandemic response is now literally indefensible. Nobody’s seriously defending it. That’s progress.
Also, Mr. Tucker meant to say that the steady drumbeat of new revelations hardly gets any attention at all from corporate media. The breaking news gets plenty of attention here at Coffee & Covid and at other aligned independent media — like Brownstone. But we take his point — there’s a tacit omertà among the establishment types; an all-new “move-on-dot-org” conspiracy of like-minded actors implicitly agreeing to shepherd the bruised population along toward some shiny new distraction.
Still, Mr. Tucker is on the right trail and his article is worth a read.
Have a terrific Thursday! Coffee and Covid is back, and will return tomorrow morning with a regular roundup to keep you advised and entertained as we head into the holiday weekend.
