Luna files bill to trim CDC powers; Florida gains better credit rating than the United States; and another influencer pans the medical-industrial complex.
🗞💬 WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY 💬🗞
💉 Last evening, feeling just like how Indiana Jones must have felt when he rounded the last clump of jungle brush and saw even more jungle brush, I was embarked on another fruitless household adventure, playing “find the hidden remote” that my children’s teenage devious, subconscious brains stowed in some unlikely spot (simultaneously causing them to experience temporary amnesia), and while searching I passed the time noodling about the “medical emergency” roundup that I don’t want to do anymore.
Suddenly and unexpectedly I got an idea, or the hint of an idea, or maybe the vague outlines of an idea. Medical emergency headlines are so obvious at this point they’ve become routine. But what if there were other clues buried in the headlines?
I decided to try out some new research topics.
I struck gold on my very first try. Behold, another new pandemic, a super-spreading explosion of new cancer centers now opening all over America, for some reason. It’s the new gold rush! And these headlines are all from within just the last 30 days, all of which I easily found in one search — meaning this isn’t even the whole list. I just stopped looking when the list got so long it started feeling overwhelming.
Anyway, here it is, a massive investment in cancer treatment:
Cancer seems like a growth market! Imagine needing a whole new cancer center just for young adults (18-39), who really aren’t supposed to get cancer to start with. I guess Joe Biden’s awesome ‘Cancer Moon Shot’ blew up on the launch pad, and now we have nothing to show for all the trillions of dollars wasted on grants for cancer research and new treatments.
This one was so easy that there must be other ways to evidence the jab failures. Let’s brainstorm! Besides “new cancer center,” what else could we search for that would expose the CDC’s mendacious obfuscation? Think outside the box. Besides pharma companies and cancer centers, what other stocks would we buy if we were expecting more jab injuries?
🔬 An important new preprint study led by Yale researchers with eighteen authors published late last week titled, “Post-Vaccination Syndrome: A Descriptive Analysis of Reported Symptoms and Patient Experiences After Covid-19 Immunization.” The study, basic though it was, offered new hope to people struggling with difficult-to-diagnose vaccine injuries that their useless doctors refuse to recognize or just gaslight everybody about.
The study began its very first sentence by stating — as a fact — that “A severe, debilitating, chronic post-vaccination syndrome (PVS) after covid-19 vaccination has been reported but has yet to be well characterized.” Severe. Debilitating. Chronic. (It’s totally safe! Ninety-five percent effective! The most thoroughly-tested vaccines in human history!) The authors obviously called it a vaccine syndrome instead of a vaccine injury to avoid implying causality, which would have badly triggered all the censorious white-coated sellouts, not to mention Big Pharma’s big-government brute squad.
To be clear, the researchers — who are obviously not dummies — explicitly admitted the debilitating syndrome’s “connection with vaccination remains controversial,” and fretted (for good reasons) that “Research in this area has the risk of being embroiled in debates about vaccinations.” You don’t say. They also did their best to assure skeptical types of readers that they weren’t trying to claim causation, or even reckon how common is the syndrome, saying: “This observational study of self-referred individuals cannot determine causality or provide estimates of the incidence and prevalence of PVS.”
The study involved 247 patients with post-vaccination syndrome over a one-year period (between May 2022 and June 2023). The subjects’ average age was 47. so about half were young people. I thought it was fascinating that the vast majority of participants were higher-income folks (although there could have been a selection bias from the way they found the participants):
The median time to symptom onset after vaccination was three days. So there’s your causality, unless you work at the CDC, in which case it proves nothing! The researchers excluded anybody diagnosed with ‘long covid’ or with any other pre-vaccine diagnosis that could produce similar symptoms.
Even though they denied trying to determine causality, the authors didn’t shy away from the causation discussion either, even including a long paragraph speculating about the potential mechanism(s) of injury:
PVS could be caused by several potential mechanisms, including a mechanism related to the vaccination or manufacturing process. It may represent a rare response to vaccines in susceptible individuals. Some investigators have concluded, based on their self-referred case series, that vaccines may cause immune system dysfunction. They focused on people with neuropathy after vaccination and could not identify other causes. In 2 of 5 participants, the cerebrospinal fluid had oligoclonal bands, and they found immune complexes in some skin biopsies. Nevertheless, the syndrome could be unrelated to the vaccination, occurring by chance during the vaccination period. However, the temporal relationship with clustering of symptom onset within the first 1–18 days from the index vaccine suggests a potential relationship. The possibility that the syndrome may be related to the vaccination has implications for future vaccine development and safety surveillance.
The most common PVS symptoms were exercise intolerance, excessive fatigue, numbness, brain fog, and neuropathy (misfiring nerves, like tingling and numbness in simple cases). People with this “syndrome” are also in a poor mental state, often reporting feeling anxious or depressed.
All the gaslighting from their doctors probably doesn’t help much, either.
The study’s participants each reported on average trying at least twenty different treatments, none of which worked. Astoundingly, in total, the 247 participants together tried over 200 different types of treatments — to no avail. The study’s dry, euphemistic conclusion was that people with Post-Vaccine Syndrome have “low health status,” and they suffer from a “high symptom burden:”
Conclusions: In this study, individuals who reported (Post-Vaccination Syndrome) PVS after covid-19 vaccination had low health status, high symptom burden, and high psychosocial stress despite trying many treatments. There is a need for continued investigation to understand and treat this condition.
Unlike previous generations of studies, this one didn’t emphasize the word ‘rare’ in any significant context related to the frequency of Post-Vaccine Syndrome. They did allow one sentence acknowledging that the pandemic vaccination campaign had a ‘clear net benefit’ — say the words! – but I enjoyed what I thought was an implied emphasis on the word ‘net’ to modify ‘benefit.’
In other words, most jabbed people haven’t gotten PVS or some other injury. So far.
This study reflects huge progress. Demonstrating both intelligence and political savvy, the authors skillfully tried to change the vocabulary around covid vaccine injuries to ease the discussion into polite company. It might work.
😷 Yesterday, Representative Kevin Kiley (R-Ca.) successfully passed an amendment that would ban toddler mask mandates in federal programs like Head Start.
Wacky, bright-blue-haired Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) challenged the amendment. (She begins speaking around the 3:20 mark in the clip.) DeLauro cited “evidence-based science” and demanded “options” for “our scientists” to help protect everybody during pandemics. You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. She argued we should “follow the science,” not follow Republicans’ politics or worse, their religious beliefs. She allowed that we all endured “a traumatic experience during covid,” but “we were all trying to find our way forward.” Mistakes were made.
Representative Kiley smartly tore into DeLauro’s hand-waving about “evidence-based science,” demanding that she produce her evidence, or just cite a single study, noting that even the WHO recommended against toddler masking. Unsurprisingly, DeLauro couldn’t do any of that, and she let Kiley’s amendment pass without demanding a recorded vote.
It was terrific progress. Please don’t buy into the cynical complaint that Kiley’s amendment was too little. In online comments, hard-skeptics asked, why only toddlers? Why just masks?
The answer is: politics.
At one point, a majority — including most democrats and many republicans — favored mask mandates. That’s a hard fact that is easy to overlook these days. At the height of pandemic mania, over 50% of Americans wanted everyone breathing through spit collectors. So the path to killing masks is not straightforward. Sure, a dictator could ban masks with the stroke of a pen. But in a democratic republic, reversing course requires an incremental and consensus-building approach.
A toddler mask ban is the most easily-justified type of mask ban: toddlers need to see faces to learn language skills. Only bizarre blue-haired people try arguing with that logic. And after passing the first, most obvious mask ban, the ban can be incrementally expanded. The game is afoot. You just need a place to start.
The democrats have successfully used this incrementalist technique against conservatives for decades. It is how we will beat all jab mandates.
One line to a federal ban on vaccine mandates is drawn directly through mask mandate bans. Of the two, the mask mandate ban is the easier ban for most people to accept. And the logic supporting a ban on mask mandates is ultimately rooted in bodily integrity and personal freedom — just like for vaccines. The one leads to the other.
Think about it this way: back in 2020, when I was fighting mask mandates in court, the communitarian argument I most often faced was masking is not for the wearer, it’s to protect everyone else. I recognized even then, in the late summer of 2020, that the communitarian mask argument was also an argument for mandatory vaccines. The jab is not for the injected, it’s to protect everyone else. So once we beat mask mandates, the foundation will be laid for beating vaccine mandates.
Unlike some of the other proposed legislation in today’s update, the federal toddler mask ban has a good chance of passing. Let’s take the W.
💉 The Epoch Times ran an encouraging story yesterday headlined, “Congress Warned About DNA Fragments in Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.” Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wi.) and Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Warren Davidson (R-Oh.), and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) held a ‘hearing’ on Monday about vaccines and vaccine safety (well, their lack of safety) that was completely ignored by Corporate Media.
After the hearing, Greene told an NTD News reporter that she favors accountability for the FDA and stripping liability protections from vaccine manufacturers — so that injured people can sue them. She made even spicier comments during the hearing.
Representative Greene ended the hearing with an impassioned plea for accountability and transparency over the vaccines, without any hyperbole calling the covid vaccine campaign ‘the worst thing that’s ever happened’:
“This is in my opinion, the worst thing that's ever happened to our country in my lifetime in the world, and the government's role cannot be denied," she said as she closed the hearing. "And I share all your sentiment as well as most Americans that are outraged and angered and continue to be angered over the fact that no one has ever been held accountable.”
It’s a start! Remember the formula required for political accountability for the jabs. No politician who was involved in promoting the mandates can now join the anti-pharma movement — not at least until enough time has passed that their positions can “evolve.” So in the short term, all the heavy lifting must be done by heterodox officials like Ron Johnson and Marjorie Greene who opposed mandates from the beginning. But as time passes, and as new unsoiled officials join Congress, political lobbying for vaccine victims will keep growing.
I’m not saying the hearing was the reason, though it couldn’t have helped any, that Pfizer’s stock is down again, now at its lowest price since December 2016. Behold Monday’s headline:
It’s a very bad sign for Pfizer. Even if nobody wants its stupid covid jabs anymore, all the money Pfizer made during the pandemic should still have increased the company’s value over the pre-pandemic period. In other words, Pfizer either has tons of cash, or it used the cash to acquire a bunch of smaller drug companies, or both.
But all that vast additional value is not reflected in the stock price. It almost seems like investors are fleeing the company for some reason. Maybe investors perceive a lot of risk for Pfizer. Best of all, the plummeting stock price shows congresspeople have surely dumped the stock by now, if anything selling the stock short, all of which paves the way for legal accountability and creates a vicious feedback loop of corporate destruction.
In other words, Pfizer is perilously close to becoming a legal piñata, or maybe an Old Testament scapegoat to be sent off wandering into the wilderness with a bell around its neck.
🔥 In a similar vein, the Daily Caller ran a terrific story this week headlined, “EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Anna Paulina Luna Introduces Legislation To Terminate Overreach At CDC.”
Yes, please! Anna’s bill, titled the Terminate CDC Overreach Act, would raise the bar on the CDC, requiring the agency’s “communicable and pre-communicable framework” to be limited only to people who are proven to be infected or shown to be very likely to be infected through clinical tests, contact tracing and clinical presentation. In other words, not the general public or “asymptomatic” folks.
The CDC would also have to ‘show its work’ by publishing detailed science briefs with all of its recommendations, guidances or policies. Maybe most important, the bill would also include an expedited review of any of the CDC’s emergency measures, giving Congress more power over CDC decisions that might significantly impact the economy, for example.
Granted, the bill is a long shot. This time. But once again, it shows that the groundswell of pushback against the medical-industrial complex is starting with independent elected officials, before it goes mainstream, which it surely will. Note that Anna’s bill was also cosponsored by Representatives Mary Miller (R-Ill.) and Eli Crane (R-Az.). The pushback group is growing.
📈 The always-sunny Sunshine State of Florida — whose growth and success can be directly tied to its anti-mandate, pro-freedom pandemic policies — received a top AAA Moodys credit rating this week, even while Moody’s also lowered the United States’ credit rating to negative.
Yesterday, Governor DeSantis rightly bragged about Florida’s top credit rating:
DeSantis deserves to brag about the state’s excellent credit score. Setting aside presidential politics, the Sunshine State’s strong economic performance is a resounding confirmation of pro-freedom, small-government health policy.
🔥 Add UFC owner and multimillionaire Dana White to the list of people skeptical of modern medicine, who lost trust in doctors because of their pandemic performance. During an interview this week, Dana vowed that he would never, EVER, talk to a doctor about his non-urgent general healthcare needs, because doctors only know how to push pills:
Specifically, Dana passionately said:
“I will never talk to a doctor about my general health ever again. If I break my arm, I’ll go see a doctor. If I need surgery, I’m gonna go see a doctor. But my general health? Never again. None of them know what they're talking about. They are all full of sh—. All they know is to put you on pills and put you on medicine."
Strong words about doctors! He said “none of them know what they’re talking about” — NONE of them — and “they are all full of stuff” — ALL of them. That right there is the harvest of mistrust that many doctors sowed during the pandemic with all their lies. When the bill comes due, they’ll whine that they had no choice, because they were pressured by the government’s public health officials, but that argument won’t work. It won’t work because they were also the very first ones to claim that we had a choice not to take the shots (we could choose to get fired).
I know exactly how Dana feels. While there are still some good doctors around, especially outside the hospital context, they are pretty hard to find. And, we can research our own non-emergent health issues — just as well, if not better, than busy hospitalists can. From my experience, most doctors don’t even read the studies, they just bark up whatever the CDC says.
Dana White is just the latest significant influencer who is questioning the establishment narrative. There’s a tipping point around here somewhere, a point of no return when things start happening fast, and we are getting closer and closer to that point.
