Good morning, C&C, it’s Tuesday! I hope you enjoyed a joyful and rewarding Labor Day holiday. Ready for a shortened work and school week? Let’s kick it off with today’s terrific roundup: jabbed Jill Biden down with covid, again; U.S. home sales trapped in an Economics paradox; new FOIA’d FDA emails shatter fact checkers and boost conspiracy theorists; new study finds troubling mechanism for cardiac injuries and fibers; a new study connects prions and brain fibrils with spike protein from the jabs; and Governor DeSantis deflates stupid climate change arguments over Florida’s recent hurricane.
🗞💬 WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY 💬🗞
💉 Super-jabbed Jill Biden, 72, having had two jabs and two boosters, four shots total, has covid again! Fortunately, media says it’s only mild symptoms. And don’t worry, Robert L. Peters is fine. Yesterday, the White House issued a short, terse, announcement:
I’m not sure whether to believe it or not, after all, President Peters promised if you get the jabs you won’t get covid. Broken promise. I wonder whether Jill is mad at him. Or, maybe it’s her own fault. Maybe Jill didn’t get enough jab juice?
And she obviously isn’t masking properly. Hand washing, Jill. Sixty seconds.
Now, back in the old days, Jill would’ve had “a cold” and her mild illness wouldn’t have made headline news on Establishment Media, which was just beside itself yesterday.
Here’s the Wall Street Journal’s headline, which for some strange reason was filed under “politics:”
Yep. It’s politics, all right.
📉 President Peters has bigger problems than Jill’s covid infection. As Wall Street Silver tweeted yesterday, in the face of rising mortgage interest rates, home sales growth (measured by investor purchases) has fallen below previously-historic levels seen during the 2008 real-estate collapse:
It’s Bidenomics! Maybe printing all that money wasn’t such a great idea after all?
What we are now seeing is quite different from 2008. We have not (yet) seen a tsunami of mortgage foreclosures, so that’s good. But oddly, even in the face of tortoise-like sales, real estate prices remain high. High prices plus high mortgage rates is a recipe for no sales. It’s a simple issue of supply and demand.
Also oddly, supply of homes (“inventory”) is also down, for the understandable reason that people who own homes don’t want to trade their existing low mortgage rates for high ones. Low supply drives even higher prices. But buyers can’t afford to pay both high prices and high interest rates. So demand is down, too.
Under the Law of Supply and Demand — which is a law, not a theory — supply and demand are supposed to be the inverse of each other. But that’s not what we are seeing now, which breaks the law. As I have often said, when you see a distortion in the market, look for the withered hand of government. You’ll find it, every time.
Thanks Bob Peters!
🔥 The fact checkers were hardest hit. A new eye-popping FOIA disclosure was making the rounds this week. The FDA three emails evidenced a perfect storm of government bungling and corruption. The short version is that right while federal jab mandates were lifting off in the fall of 2021, top government officials already knew that the jabs “waned,” meaning they didn’t protect anybody.
But that’s not all. Not even close.
Here’s the first email in the thread. It’s a doozy. It was sent from a Department of Defense contractor to FDA top official Marion Gruber in advance of the September 2021 vaccine committee meeting. Marion Gruber was the Director of the Office of Vaccines Research and Review at the FDA.
First of all, notice the email explained that the Department of Defense hired Humetrix in March 2020 to analyze Medicare claims data related to covid:
This study has been conducted by my company under contract with the DoD JAIC (Joint Artificial Intelligence Center) since March 2020, when we were tasked to analyze Medicare claim data to monitor, map and conduct Covid-19 predictive analytics for the military.
“For the military.” Why was DoD involved right from March 2020? Was covid a military operation or a health emergency? What do they know that they aren’t saying?
"Salus" was the name of a pagan Roman goddess associated with health, well-being, and prosperity. Hopefully someone will follow up and FOIA everything related to “Project Salus.”
And … the JAIC? A DoD joint artificial intelligence center? What is that? How and why did the JAIC get involved in covid from day one? Why haven’t we ever heard of its role in the pandemic? Unanswerable questions.
At least, unanswerable so far. We’re getting there, drop by painful drop.
Finally, this government contractor, Humetrix, was hired by the military to monitor Medicare claims data. Honestly, it makes perfect sense to monitor Medicare claims. Why wasn’t the CDC monitoring Medicare claims data? Of course they were. So why haven’t we ever heard about what the government was finding in the Medicare claims data?
Next, Humetrix gave the top officials at HHS the bad news, for consideration of the vaccine advisory committee:
Our observational study VE findings show a very significant decrease in VE against infection and hospitalization in the Delta phase of the pandemic for individuals vaccinated with either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine for those 5-6 months post vaccination vs. those 3-4 months post vaccination.
“VE” means “vaccine efficacy.” It was bad enough that, right while the government was throwing out mandates faster than a t-shirt shooting machine at an SEC Bowl Game on federal employees and contractors, airline pilots, and who knows what else, they already knew the vaccines didn’t prevent covid infections. But it’s even worse than that.
From the Medicare data, they knew in September 2021 that the negative jab efficacy also applied to hospitalizations. It says it right there, in black and white. They are still maintaining the lie that jabs prevent hospitalizations for severe covid. But what does the Medicare data show? Hmm?
You might be wondering, maybe they had other information that contradicted Humetrix’s findings. We certainly heard zero discussion of that issue during the vaccine committee meeting, or anywhere else for that matter, but still. It could be, right?
Nope. The next two emails tell the story. Leaving Humetrix out of the chain, HHS’s Peter Marks replied to Janet Woodcock and Julia Teirney, both in FDA. Marks was the Director of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) at the FDA. The CBER oversaw the vaccine approval process for the covid shots.
Marks first expressed surprise, like us, that the DoD’s Artificial Intelligence project was involved. Had they known that, they could have shut it down. And, again like us, he was surprised the CDC — which also had full access to the Medicare data — hadn’t said anything. But notice Mark’s final comment:
As I said yesterday, the totality of the evidence is remarkably consistent.
Remarkably consistent evidence! And, he’d said it before, to someone, even before getting the Humetrix email. So, contrary to what they were saying publicly, that the jabs worked great and prevented hospitalization, internally HHS officials were saying that the remarkably consistent evidence showed the exact opposite was true.
Finally, we have Janet Woodcock’s reply to Marks’ email. Woodcock was the top official at the FDA overseeing the vaccines.
Woodcock “supposed” the vaccine committee would discuss this data. That seems logical, but for some reason, it didn’t. For some reason. But her final sentence put the nail in the covid coffin:
Actually Peter this is more worrisome than the other data we have in my opinion.
See that? She even disagreed with Marks. To Woodcock, the Humetrix findings were even worse than what they had been seeing.
But none of this ever made the public discussion. What happened inside the FDA that prevented the vaccine committee from discussing the remarkably consistent evidence?
And yet, the government doubled-down on mandates, full throttle, until courts finally forced them to stop.
🔬 In May, a new peer-reviewed study published in Science Immunology titled, “Cytokinopathy with aberrant cytotoxic lymphocytes and profibrotic myeloid response in SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccine–associated myocarditis.” It had 21 authors.
The study set out to determine precisely how the mRNA vaccines cause myocarditis. Let’s start with the end, the conclusion, then I’ll explain the vocabulary, and then we’ll see what it means:
Although rare, vaccine-associated myopericarditis has emerged as an important area of investigation… Together, our results demonstrate up-regulation in inflammatory cytokines and corresponding lymphocytes with tissue-damaging capabilities, suggesting a cytokine-dependent pathology, which may further be accompanied by myeloid cell–associated cardiac fibrosis… These findings are distinct from previously reported forms of vaccine-associated myocarditis (including after tetanus toxoid, conjugate meningococcal C and hepatitis B, and smallpox vaccines), where the pathologies were largely eosinophilic.
Before we start, let’s check in on the evolution of the mandatory pro-vaccine statement required for a study to survive peer-review. Spoiler: it’s getting watered down. Here’s how this peer-reviewed study phrased the obligatory endorsement:
The SARS-CoV-2 spike mRNA vaccines have been found to be safe in international studies involving hundreds of thousands of individuals (1–4), although very rare cases of adverse events have been subsequently reported.
One imagines with relish the twenty-one authors debating the precise wording of that sentence at great length. And, haha! First, they completely dropped the word “effective.” Sayonara! And even the word “safe” has been diluted; rather than just saying jabs are safe, as if it were common knowledge, these authors merely noted that “international studies” found the jabs to be safe.
In other words, they said it was safe. Don’t blame us.
Let’s dig in. You’ll recall hearing about “cytokines” in the news, most famously referring to the “cytokine storm” that was initially blamed for covid deaths. Cytokines are tiny but important proteins produced by the immune system. There are several types, and they affect different kinds of cells in different ways.
For our purposes, one important type of cytokines are “cytotoxic.”
Cyto-toxic means proteins that kill cells. Cyto means “cell,” and toxic means, well, toxic. So what you definitely do not want are recurring waves of cytotoxic cytokines flooding your body. That would be kind of like a chemo treatment. Think poison. Widespread destruction.
“Myeloid cell-associated cardiac fibrosis” occurs when a type of immune cell (myeloids), leads to cardiac fibrosis. Cardiac fibrosis is an excessive growth of fibrous connective tissue (collagen) in the heart, leading to stiffening of the heart muscle and impaired heart function, which shows up as reduced heart elasticity, impaired pumping function, and potential complications like sudden and unexpected heart failure.
What the researchers found was that, in some people, the mRNA shots created excessive cytotoxic cytokines (heart cell killers) and pro-fibrotic cardiac tissue (heart stoppers). Furthermore, this all seems to work completely differently in mRNA shots than with any type of myocarditis effect previously seen in traditional types of vaccines.
The vaccine-induced cardiac injuries were found “more frequently after the second dose,” which the authors found “intriguing.” Sadly, this information could have been helpful to people considering taking the jabs, especially people with existing cardiac problems or people genetically pre-disposed to cardiac injury. Oh well!
Smartly, the authors then connected their findings to other studies that seem to show the same thing — especially one study finding the cardiac-damaging proteins right in the deltoid muscle where the shot was injected:
Our clinical, cellular, and molecular findings potentially point to ongoing wound healing, tissue remodeling, and scar formation after cardiac injury in these patients… These results are supported by published cardiac biopsy reports showing macrophage infiltration of heart tissue. Most recently, a large clinical study of 69 total patients with clinically suspected SARS-CoV-2 vaccine–associated myocarditis reported 40 biopsy-confirmed cases with prominent…infiltration of cardiac tissue. In one report, overlapping immune infiltrate was…found at the vaccine injection site in the deltoid muscle. Another histopathological study of 15 clinically suspected cases further reported cardiac infiltration of… macrophages.
The good news is, the more we understand about how the shots kill and injure people, the closer we get to an effective treatment. And the closer we get to accountability.
Now, remember the study’s pro-fibrotic finding. There’s another one, except worse.
🔬 Another, even worse study finding a pro-fibrotic effect published as a preprint last week, titled “SARS-CoV-2 Spike amyloid fibrils specifically and selectively accelerates amyloid fibril formation of human prion protein and the amyloid β peptide.”
In this study, the researchers found the spike protein (which is massively made by the jabs) led to fibrous growth — not in the heart, but the brain. It appears to discuss injuries from natural covid spike, but just wait.
The authors began by suggesting a link between the covid spike protein and brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and mad cow disease:
An increasing number of reports suggest an association between COVID-19 infection and initiation or acceleration of neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD). Both these diseases and several other neurodegenerative diseases are caused by conversion of human proteins into a misfolded, aggregated amyloid fibril state.
It gets a little thick, but the study referred to prions, which are mis-folded proteins. DNA is the ‘recipe’ for making proteins, but proteins are not only a sequence of amino acids. To work right, a protein’s shape is just as important as its ingredients. So when there is even a tiny defect in the recipe, cells can make a protein that has the right DNA but its shape is just a little off, “misfolded,” which causes problems.
Sometimes big problems. These problematic proteins are called “prions.”
Prions — misfolded proteins — can induce misfolding in other normal proteins they bump into. This chain of misfolding can lead to a domino effect, resulting in the formation of clumps accumulating in tissues, particularly in the brain.
As much as possible, the authors very carefully avoided mentioning the jabs. But of course, mentioning the jabs was inevitable because otherwise how could people who’d fully recovered from covid — with the spike presumably cleared out of their system — go on to develop one of these awful brain diseases:
Spike protein produced in the host as response to mRNA vaccine, as deduced by specific amino acid substitutions, persists in blood samples from 50% of vaccinated individuals for between 67 and 187 days after mRNA vaccination. Such prolonged Spike protein exposure has previously been hypothesized to stem from residual virus reservoirs, but evidently this can occur also as consequence of mRNA vaccination… During the past 3 years, several case reports of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) manifestation in parallel with COVID-19 infection or vaccination have been published… Several recent reports of CJD manifesting temporally close to SARS-CoV-2 infection or vaccination with SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein derivatives also highlights the need to investigate possible links.
In other words, they’re saying the prion effects could either be from mysterious, unproven, totally hypothetical “reservoirs” of spike after a natural infection, or from the jabs. As they noted, the jabs "evidently" have been shown to keep making spike up to 187 days after receiving the shot.
Between a totally unproven reservoir hypothesis and an obvious source of spike like the jabs, obviously it’s the jabs. At least it is until they actually find a “reservoir” of leftover spike protein somewhere.
Drip, drip, drip.
🔥 Finally, Fox News ran a terrific story yesterday headlined, “DeSantis hammers climate change alarmists in no uncertain terms in Idalia’s aftermath.”
During a Sunday press conference, Governor DeSantis responded to federal officials and other woke leftists who’ve been claiming that Hurricane Idalia somehow proves their idiotic manmade climate change theory.
The Governor used facts and history, which cause a reaction in woke leftists similar to what happens when you bury a vampire in crucifixes and garlic.
DeSantis cited an 1896 storm with 125 mph winds and, most timely, Florida's 1935 Labor Day hurricane, both of which caused massive destruction and deaths, and both of which predated “manmade climate change.”
In his inimitable non-nonsense style, DeSantis made it clear, even to people who live in Portland:
"So, I think the notion that somehow hurricanes are something new, that’s just false. And we’ve got to stop politicizing the weather and stop politicizing natural disasters. We know from history there’s been times when it’s very busy in Florida, late ‘40s, early ‘50s, you had a lot of hits of significant hurricanes.
So, I think sometimes people need to take a breath and get a little bit of perspective here. But the notion that somehow if we just adopt, you know, very left-wing policies at the federal level that somehow we will not have hurricanes, that is a lie.
And that is people trying to take what happened with different types of storms and use that as a pretext to advance their agenda on the backs of people that are suffering. And that’s wrong, and we’re not going to do that in the state of Florida."
Presidential politics aside, we Floridians are grateful to have a commonsense, plain-talking Governor instead of a Bob Peters-like WEF clone.
