Good morning, C&C, it’s Friday! Your catch-up-roundup includes: Boris Johnson annoys British by apologizing that anyone’s feelings were hurt during the government’s covid overreach period, which by all measurements was a spectacular failure; brave president Zelensky chickens-out of Senate hearing on Ukraine funding; Biden says he’s ready to compromise on U.S. border to get some sweet cash for Ukraine; WaPo sells compromise deal; deep-staters scurry out of the woodwork; Blinken argues all the money we’re borrowing to prop up Ukraine a little longer helps our economy; SADS Hollywood producer; SADS celebrity dancer; U.S. military moves into third theater of world war; Hunter Biden indicted over nine income tax charges; three different but related Korean jab studies add fuel to yesterday’s nonsense protein study; and a good-news study that offers hope for, well, some people.
🗞💬 WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY 💬🗞
🔥 The UK independent ran an eyebrow-raising story Wednesday headlined, “Boris Johnson admits mistakes were made and says ‘sorry’ to Covid victims.” The sub-headline explained, “The former prime minister insisted ‘we did our best’ in handling the pandemic at the official inquiry.”
Like in the US, the UK is now conducting government hearings — what they call ‘an inquiry’ — over that country’s covid response. Former prime minister Boris Johnson, who oversaw the lockdowns and fear-based ‘Psy-B’ psychological manipulation of the British public, testified.
“Can I just say how glad I am to be at this inquiry and how sorry I am for the pain and the loss and the suffering of the Covid victims,” Johnson began. The Independent reported four people were then removed from the hearing room after they held up signs reading, “The Dead can’t hear your apologies.”
The characteristically-uncoiffed Mr. Johnson took a broad-minded view of things. “Inevitably,” he explained, “in the course of trying to handle a very, very difficult pandemic in which we had to balance appalling harms on either side of the decision, we may have made mistakes.”
Maybe mistakes were made. It’s possible. Who knows?
Pressed repeatedly on why the UK had such a high rate of excess deaths – the second-worst in Europe after Italy – Johnson pointed to “headwinds” like an “extremely elderly population” with many health issues — despite the country’s vast socialized healthcare system — and being a “very densely populated country,” which he suggested “did not help.”
Mr. Johnson also blamed staff. With chagrin, he admitted he may have only read Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) minutes “once or twice,” adding that, in hindsight, “it may have been valuable” to have done more reading for himself. Of course, he’s a very slow reader given his obvious handicaps, so.
Some British MPs were less concerned about all the dead Brits, and more worried about diversity. Mr. Johnson admitted that his top team was too “male-dominated” and the gender balance “should have been better.” I’m glad this issue got aired out.
🚀 The BBC ran a story yesterday headlined, “Zelensky abruptly cancels US Senate briefing amid funding row.”
Just before the contentious classified Senate meeting on Ukraine funding earlier this week, right before he was supposed to appear by Zoom and give the Senators a top-secret briefing on how the war is going, former comedian and brave wartime president Zelensky suddenly and unexpectedly chickened-out:
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has called off a high-profile briefing with US lawmakers amid an impasse over future US funding for the country. Virtual appearances in the Senate and House had been scheduled for Tuesday, but were cancelled at the last moment.
Senate leader Chuck Schumer did not explain why Mr Zelensky was a no-show.
According to reports, Republicans on the committee responded to Zelensky’s disappearance by testily calling the “classified briefing” a joke and a waste of time and, as you know, no funding was approved for Ukraine. Which started a deep-state narrative tidal wave.
🚀 Later in the day, the Hill ran a story headlined, “Biden willing to make ‘significant compromises’ on border policy amid fight for Ukraine funding.”
For the first time since the Proxy War began, President Robert L. Peters said he has always been willing to compromise with Republicans on funding Ukraine. He’s always been willing to talk about making compromises, even significant compromises, on U.S. border policy. Why wouldn’t he? He has an open-door policy. Except when hookers are in there. But he always ties a blue sock on the doorknob.
No, the standoff isn’t Joe Biden’s fault. Biden blamed the Ukraine funding standoff on … Republicans! Wait, it got better! He then also blamed them for not fixing the broken U.S. border! Here’s how the Hill described how it went down:
President Biden on Wednesday said he’s willing to make “significant compromises” on border policy as he seeks a breakthrough on funding for Ukraine in its fight against Russia.
“Republicans (are) willing to literally kneecap Ukraine on the battlefield and damage our national security in the process,” Biden said. “I am willing to make significant compromises on the border,” he added. “We need to fix the broken border system. It is broken. And thus far I’ve gotten no response.”
Then the Washington Post practically made a song out of it, penning to its democrat voters a spectacular apologia advertising Biden’s long-standing but recently-disclosed willingness to compromise with Republicans:
He’s so bipartisan! He’ll give anyone a reach across the aisle! Biden is the great compromiser. Okay, I have to stop. It was an awful piece and it would only annoy you to hear the rest anyways. Anticipating democrat angst over any compromise with Republicans, WaPo packaged the “offer to compromise” in a long list of ways Biden has already screwed Republicans so far.
The new narrative is so obvious. Here’s regular cast, Ukrainian-American, deep-state traitor and former National Security Council Director for European Affairs Alexander Vindman, who has scurried out from under whatever rotten log he’s been hiding behind, and tried to blackmail the GOP to either play ball, or else take the blame for the Fall of Ukraine:
The news IS bad! Our morons in charge have no “plan B.” Their one and only plan is another 100 billion in round dollars — don’t ask how they calculated that — with no actual military battle plan to win the war or whatever the goal is. Vindman’s tweet was a deep-state hostage demand. In other words, cough up the cash, or Ukraine dies.
Allow me to explain his offer using an imaginary conversation between Congress and the generals on the Joint Chiefs of Staff:
CONGRESS: Boys, the news is bad. We are 33 trillion in debt. We need you to come up with a less expensive way to help Ukraine survive its war with Russia.
GENERALS: You people don’t know war. We’re the experts. How do you expect us to win a Proxy War without shooting cash at the enemy inside depleted uranium shells? It’s impossible! No plan B!
CONGRESS: Nobody wants Putin to win, but we do have some nine-inch, bright-red Jimmy Choo stiletto pumps we can give you. How about that?
GENERALS: Give us the pumps and we’ll think about it.
Why Vindman is talking to the State Department — or why they are talking to him — is anybody’s guess. You tell me.
🚀 Free Malaysia Today ran a story yesterday headlined, “Ukraine aid also creates growth, jobs at home, says Blinken.“ Looking especially haggard and worn-out, and almost fully-grey now, owlish Secretary of State and master propagandist Antony Blinken assured press conference reporters yesterday that, “if you look at the investments that we’ve made in Ukraine’s defense to deal with this aggression, 90% of the security assistance we’ve provided has actually been spent here in the US with our manufacturers.”
The serial prevaricator stressed that Ukraine aid has “produced more American jobs, more growth in our own economy.” He didn’t cite any statistics. But don’t ask questions. You see, it’s win-win.
This is the kind of robotic, anti-human, tone-deaf argument that is often caused by chronic Adderall consumption. 600,000 dead Ukrainians were unavailable to comment on how 90% of the laundered aid money actually helps the U.S. economy. Twelve million displaced Ukrainians also did not return any requests for comment by the time of publication.
💉 Hollywood producer and Forest Whitaker’s ex-wife, Keisha Nash-Whitaker, 51, died suddenly, unexpectedly, and mysteriously yesterday. No cause of death has been released.
The two were married for 22 years until 2018, and had twin daughters, Sonnet and True, both 25. Hollywood faced multiple jab mandates during the pandemic. Rest in peace.
💉 Dancer and wife of Dancing With The Stars judge Derek Hough, Hayley Erbert, 29, got a little dizzy during Derek’s show in Washington D.C. last night. So they rushed her to the hospital and immediately opened her skull up in an emergency craniotomy.
On Instagram, Derek let fans know that fortunately, Hayley is stable. She was diagnosed with a cranial hematoma (a burst blood vessel in the brain). No cause has been released.
It must be pretty terrifying to have a mysterious condition that could cause your brain to explode any second without any warning. One suspects lifelong blood thinners are on the horizon.
We pray for Hayley’s complete and miraculous recovery.
🚀 Told you! Barron’s ran a story yesterday about world’s third regional conflict headlined, “US Holds Military Exercises In Guyana As Border Tensions Soar.”
Last weekend, Venezuela revived a 200-year-old border dispute over the oil-rich Essequibo region, which has part of neighboring Guyana for well over a century. Venezuela has long claimed to hold the legal right to the Essequibo oil fields. On Sunday, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro raised the stakes by holding a successful referendum over his plan to invade Essequibo.
The long-running dispute over the “Essequibo” region — about two-thirds of Guyana’s territory — is complicated, but really began ‘intensifying’ in 2015 when ExxonMobil discovered vast oil deposits. For some reason, perhaps because the U.S. is already occupied in two other theaters of World War, Maduro decided that right now, while Biden is still President for a year, might be a good time to invade Guyana.
In other words, it looks like Guyana is about to have a border problem much like Ukraine. And like the U.S. border! There wasn’t much publicly available about yesterday’s joint US-Guyana exercises, except that they happened. Brazil supports Venezuela and has sent military to its border with both countries.
I’m not saying our military, which is failing to meet all its minimum recruitment goals, is stretched thin or anything. I’m just saying.
🔥 CNN reported late yesterday that, “Hunter Biden faces nine criminal charges in federal tax case | CNN Politics.”
The charges span nine tax-related counts, including failure to file and pay taxes; evasion of assessment; and false or fraudulent tax return. By 2018, someone paid his taxes, but used extensive “false business deductions in order to evade assessment of taxes to reduce the substantial tax liabilities he faced.”
There’s nothing in the indictment about Hunter’s obvious violations of the Foreign Agent Registration Act, which was deployed against General Mike Flynn over one phone call.
The tax indictment explained that “between 2016 and October 15, 2020, the Defendant spent this money on drugs, escorts and girlfriends, luxury hotels and rental properties, exotic cars, clothing, and other items of a personal nature, in short, everything but his taxes.” That’s all pretty well-known. Maybe a few democrats don’t know yet.
But what was unstated in all these stories was that Hunter Biden, an high-priced, international expert on law, energy, and finance, never fully paid his income taxes on all that ill-begotten money. I know that probably shocks you.
Here is the closest that CNN got to mentioning, ahem, the ‘broader’ issues:
The new tax case stems from Hunter Biden’s lucrative overseas business dealings – including his involvement with Ukrainian energy company Burisma and a Chinese private equity fund – which are at the center of House Republicans’ impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden.
Hunter Biden made millions of dollars from private equity deals, corporate consulting and legal fees in Ukraine, China, Romania and other countries. (Hunter) was warned about his looming tax bills by accountants and associates – but still missed the IRS deadlines.
CNN said Hunter could faces seventeen years in prison if he’s found guilty on all nine counts. I’ll believe that when I see it. My bet is: zero days of jail.
🔥 Last evening, at the suggestion of an alert commenter, I tweeted yesterday’s complete segment on the Nonsense Protein study. I was skeptical whether Twitter would appreciate the post, since it was waaay overlong for a tweet. But it surprised me by going kind of viral (for a C&C tweet, anyway). Here are the stats as of early this morning.
That was nice to see, but like an evil incantation the post’s success summoned brigades of angry pharma citizen volunteers. (So far, the tweet has survived being community noted, although they’re trying.) These ‘debunking’ pseudoscientists, whether they are paid trolls or medical fetishists, fussily avoided discussing the merits of the study, but stuck to safe areas like character assassination and robotically repeating their “safe and effective” manta.
I didn’t plan to report on this recent trio of Korean preprint studies. I was going to leave it alone. But the pharma trolls made me do it. Behold three more preprint studies that are very difficult for the jabs, especially in light of the Nonsense Protein study’s findings.
Remember: the adverse effects they would admit to arising from nonsense proteins were inflammation and immune system “flare ups.” The critics on Twitter yesterday beat the drum of “no evidence” of any adverse effects.
Now let’s look at these other new studies. All three were published on the same day by a core group of Korean scientists, with one or two additions for each study based on its subject matter. Somehow these scientists got hold of Korea’s official medical database. Korea keeps all patient records in one system, including vaccinations. It has over ten million records.
Each of the three studies reports on a different search for a correlation between vaccination and various adverse events. In a sense, this triple-study reminds me of the leaked New Zealand data, except instead of just the data, the whistleblowers reported their findings with details and statistics.
🔬 STUDY #1: On November 22nd, four Korean scientists published a preprint titled, “Correlation between COVID-19 vaccination and inflammatory musculoskeletal disorders.”
The researchers searched the medical records of 2.2 million patients looking for correlations between jabs and inflammatory diseases of the muscles or skeletal system. Let’s start with the study’s conclusion:
Here are the specifics:
The study period was only the first three months post-vaccination. So the figures don’t include any of these conditions arising after the first 90 says, for the simple reason it’s easier to show evidence of causation with a shorter period.
💉 STUDY #2: Also on November 22nd, five Korean scientists (including several from the prior study) published a second preprint titled, “Hematologic abnormalities after COVID-19 vaccination: A large Korean population-based cohort study.”
They searched the same giant Korean medical database for correlations between mRNA vaccination and blood disorders. Notably, they excluded everyone who died, and they did not look at any already-known adverse effects like vaccine-induced immune thrombosis with thrombocytopenia (VITT).
The scientists found a strong correlation showing a substantially increased risk of certain blood disorders after mRNA vaccination: nutritional anemia, hemolytic anemia, aplastic anemia, coagulation defects, and neutropenia. They specifically found that “Incidence rates of hematologic abnormalities in the vaccination group three months after vaccination were significantly higher than those in the nonvaccinated group.”
Here was the researchers’ final conclusion on blood “abnormalities”:
Blood disorders might not be particularly surprising, but this study was the first large-cohort confirmation of a correlation between the jabs and a wide range of different types of blood disorders not previously recognized.
🔬 STUDY #3: Finally, the same core group of scientists published their third preprint on the same data analysis, their “kitchen sink” version, titled “The spectrum of non-fatal immune-related adverse events following COVID-19 vaccination: The population-based cohort study in Seoul, South Korea.”
Using the same giant Korean medical database, the scientists examined the “incidence rate and risk” of a wide spectrum of “non-fatal adverse events” including: gynecological, hematological, dermatological, ophthalmological, otologic, and even dental problems following mRNA covid vaccination.
Once again, they excluded people who died, children (under 20), and limited the adverse event period to 90 days following the injections. As evidence of the widening gap between regulatory agencies and practicing scientists in the field, in the study’s introduction the scientists observed without controversy that “a wide range of adverse events (AEs), not previously reported in conventional vaccines, have been observed post-vaccination.”
They completely ignored what the governments are saying about adverse events being few and ultra-rare. For some reason, both the FDA and the CDC have failed to observe the same wide range of adverse events observed post-vaccination.
Many, many types of adverse events were included within that wide spectrum of medical areas. After analyzing the data, the researchers found a strong correlation in nearly every area between mRNA vaccination and increased risk of an immune-related adverse event, with only a couple exceptions:
Here’s a glossary for the acronyms:
cIR = cumulative incidence rate, or how often something happens
irAEs = immune-related adverse events
HR = hazard ratio, or comparative risks
CI = confidence interval
heterologous vaccination = mixing and matching vaccine brands
So, in other words, both the rate and risk of immune-related adverse events were higher for vaccinated people than unvaccinated folks — in nearly every area they checked. I’m not sure we’ve ever seen anything like this before. This data suggests that the mRNA vaccines make people sicker in nearly every possible way.
One wonders whether random “nonsense proteins” will wind up being somehow connected to this mysterious and novel cause of morbidity, whatever it is.
🔬 Great news! At least, it’s good news if you like spicy things. Or if you like sushi. Or if you can choke down a supplement. A promising new Japanese study offering hope to us all published in late October titled, “Benefits of Wasabi Supplements with 6-MSITC (6-Methylsulfinyl Hexyl Isothiocyanate) on Memory Functioning in Healthy Adults Aged 60 Years and Older: Evidence from a Double-Blinded Randomized Controlled Trial.”
I would like to start by saying this has never happened to me. But from what I have heard, some people, once in a while, may have trouble remembering where they put their wallet, and then they have to ask their wife to find it for them. And then she finds it without looking, or even trying that hard, or even moving, just by asking did you leave it on top of the pressure washer? Oh, yeah.
So anything healthy that could help improve memory would be greatly welcomed. By some people. And their wives would also be grateful.
The main bioactive compound in wasabi is a wordy mouthful: 6 methylsulfinyl hexyl isothiocyanate, or 6-MSITC for short. According to the study, 6-MSITC is already recognized as having anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory features. So in this double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, researchers tested whether taking 12 weeks of 6-MSITC supplements improved “cognitive performance” in healthy adults over 60.
Half of the 72 participants took 100 milligrams of wasabi extract each night before going to bed. The other half got a very bitter sugar pill.
Bottom line: the researchers found that, while it can’t make you any smarter, 6-MSITC significantly improved participants’ memory, both short and long-term, as reflected in the table excerpt, above.
And it was a dramatic improvement. The wasabi group beat the placebo takers by up to eighteen percent on average in some memory categories.
But be careful. Don’t just rush out there gobbling up sushi three times a day. Apparently, real wasabi is not easy to find. The Washington Post reported experts think almost all (99%) of ‘wasabi’ sold and served in the United States is fake, if you can believe that. But if you can find the real deal, a small dab of authentic wasabi delivers about as much 6-MSITC as the capsule supplement from the Tohoku study.
And it will clear your sinus.
