The Highwire with Del Bigtree | June 10, 2022

A growing number of young healthy adults are mysteriously dying. Watch Jefferey Jaxen and Del try to make sense of, what is now being called, “Sudden Adult Death Syndrome” (SADS).


The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is overwhelmed and understaffed with the amount of injury claims being filed from the Covid-19 Vaccines. The program is now on life support and is on the verge of collapse.


The CDC has walked back it’s initial recommendation to mask for Monkeypox, which triggered a firestorm of criticism from the medical and scientific communities.

Riffing on the Schrodinger’s Bat problem

By Meryl Nass, MD | June 12, 2022

COVID vaccine mandates are necessary because the protected need to be protected from the unprotected by forcing the unprotected to use the protection that didn’t protect the protected.

But this “protection” only works for a few months… then the vaccines pass zero on the efficacy scale and enter negative efficacy territory. The vaccinated then have an increased risk of infection, compared to the unvaccinated.

Then the only thing that can prevent the vaccinated from being more at risk of COVID infections is getting boosters every few months.

But the boosters can damage your immunity, as noted by Marco Cavaleri, one of the top officials at the European Medicines Agency who, according to Bloomberg,

“warned that frequent Covid-19 booster shots could adversely affect the immune response and may not be feasible. Repeat booster doses every four months could eventually weaken the immune response…”

Scientists are probably working on a solution for the “too many boosters” problem, but have not succeeded yet.

Meanwhile, “trust the science,” and “trust the experts.”  I am sure they will come up with something.

Heavily armed police search Swiss doctor’s office after mask exemptions

Free West Media | June 12, 2022

Apparently the stance against doctors who work according to their Hippocratic oath and the medical code of ethics is being tightened internationally.

The enforcement of masks is an important goal in order to be able to continue the pandemic, as is known from internal protocols of the Israeli Ministry of Health or statements by the Austrian Director of Public Health. Masks have become a sign of submission while at the same time renouncing fundamental rights.

Even in Switzerland, which is known to be more liberal with the measures and had already lifted many random measures in mid-February, completely disproportionate action was taken against doctors. On social media, users likened the raid to how police would normally respond to a terror threat.

This is already happening in Germany, as the criminal judgment against Dr. Ronald Weikl showed. In Germany, such an act would be less surprising in view of the many house searches, even against judges who had issued “unwanted” judgements, also in connection with masks for children.

The regional court of Passau, Germany is expected to pass a verdict against the “mask doctor” Weikl for writing blank exemption certificates against the mask requirement.

“Whether it was a matter of issuing false health certificates, which is punishable under §278 of the German Criminal Code (StGB), as alleged by the prosecution, or only of medical certificates, for which §278 (StGB) does not apply at all,” noted the Children’s Health Defense Fund.

Weikl acted in the best interest of his patients, his lawyer explained and this should not have led to an indictment due to the lack of a criminal act on his part. The legal principle of nullum crimen, nulla poena sine lege applies, which means that one cannot be punished for doing something that is not prohibited by law – showing concern for his patients and especially children.

The law in Switzerland expressly provides for exceptions to the mask requirement. However, some authorities and the public prosecutor’s offices obviously do not care. For months there has been a veritable witch hunt against doctors who are critical of the measures.

Like Weikl, the Bern psychiatrist Dr. medical Ruke Wyler had issued mask certificates for her patients. The practice of the psychiatrist, who had only fulfilled her medical duty, was stormed in a heavy and a completely disproportionate police operation.

The scientific network Aletheia reported on the raid on the doctor’s practice. Critical doctors who question Corona measures to protect their own patients are being addressed and sanctioned, both abroad and in Switzerland.

Under the supervision of armed police officers wearing bulletproof vests, her computer hard drive was confiscated and patient files were taken away. People who wanted to support the doctor were asked to leave the building under threat of violence.

The Aletheia network said they were extremely concerned about these developments. Doctors who had issued mask certificates for the benefit of their patients did so because, after a thorough study of the data, they had come to the conclusion that wearing masks would be of no benefit, would be only harmful, first and foremost for children.

The medical certificates issued by the doctor could in no way be deemed to be incorrect since there has been no examination by the police or the public prosecutor’s office; this is a matter for medical expertise and the professional code of conduct for physicians. Medical professionals are free from directives, especially from non-physicians.

The vast majority of Corona measures are based on the narrative of the epidemiologically relevant asymptomatic transmission of SARS-CoV-2, which has long been refuted. This means that all non-pharmacological measures that go beyond hygiene and self-isolation for sick people (antisocial distancing, masks in public spaces, isolation, quarantine, contact tracing, school closures and curfews) are ineffective and harmful for asymptomatic people who were previously considered healthy.

Whistleblower’s case against Pfizer marches on

By Serena Wylde | TCW Defending Freedom | June 7, 2022

Last week Serena Wylde reported for TCW on the lawsuit that the whistleblower Brook Jackson has filed against Pfizer which she feared would be thrown out. Today she updates us on the case.

IT TAKES a special type of person to stay the course as a whistleblower. Dismissal from employment, vilification and isolation are just a few of the prices to pay. But Brook Jackson, the clinical trial regional director who has been battling against Pfizer since 2020 to bring facts to light, is not bowing to intimidation.

Having brought a case against the corporate goliath in January 2021 under the False Claims Act, Jackson was under a gagging order, and her lawyers warned her not to break it as ‘the government would come after her’. But break it she did when in September of 2021 she sent copious amounts of evidence to the British Medical Journal. At this point her attorneys from Berg and Androphy withdrew from the case, leaving her without counsel.

In February of this year the case was finally unsealed and, as reported here last week, Pfizer has filed a motion to have it thrown out. Its argument is essentially that the purchasing party – the US government – of its contract to supply 100million doses of injections in exchange for $1.9billion of US taxpayers’ money, tacitly agreed to the use of fraudulent data. Under this tortuous reasoning, it would appear to be relying on an interpretation that, as both contracting parties were complicit in the sham clinical trials, no breach of contract has occurred.

Some time back we learnt that the Covid-19 injection manufacturers had been granted immunity by governments against civil damages for injury and deaths caused by their products.

But what about criminal responsibility?

An important question must surely be how the law defines intent when it comes to inflicting harm? If a medical practitioner administers an inappropriate and toxic drug to a patient knowing it has the potential to cause harm, including death, is not a resulting fatality classed as a homicide?

As one physician-scientist explained during Republican Senator Ron Johnson’s Expert Panel Discussion on Covid-19 vaccine injuries, held on November 2, 2021, ‘Pfizer don’t do science. They do business. And the Food and Drug Administration know and enable this.’

All eyes are now on the judge, who has granted discovery about any issue related to Pfizer’s motion to dismiss the case. Jackson’s lawyer, Robert Barnes of Barnes Law LLP, says: ‘This is probably the biggest whistleblower False Claims Act case in the history of the United States.’

There is an interview with Robert Barnes at the end of the article which you can see here.

The US is trying to use Ukraine as a test lab for its drones, a move Russia is unlikely to forget

By Scott Ritter | Samizdat | June 12, 2022

According to Reuters, the US government is considering selling to Ukraine four MQ-1C Grey Eagle drones capable of firing Hellfire missiles for use against Russian forces participating in the special military operation in the Donbass region.

If true, the sale would require special permission from both the State Department and US Congress, since US law restricts the sale of armed drones to all but the closest US allies. If approval is granted, then Ukrainian operators would be provided with a crash course, anticipated to last a few weeks (the normal training time for an MQ-1C operator is several months), meaning that the earliest the MQ-1C Grey Eagle could be expected to see action over Ukraine would be sometime in July of this year.

The MQ-1C Grey Eagle is the descendant of the RQ/MQ-5 Hunter tactical unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) jointly developed by the US Army and Marine Corps. While the development program began in 1989, it reached maturity in the years following the 9/11 attacks, which meant that the Hunter UAV was a weapons system not designed to survive in a high-threat conflict against the Soviet Union, for example, but rather operate in the softer environment of the Global War on Terror (GWOT).

The operational history of the Hunter UAV reflects this. During testing in 2002, the Hunter was used to deliver BAT (brilliant anti-tank) submunitions capable of destroying Russian armored vehicles. By the time it was fielded in 2005, however, the Hunter had been modified to deliver a laser-guided bomb against insurgents in Iraq. The nature of the threat had evolved, from striking a moving target in a non-permissive environment to being able to loiter over the battlefield, unbothered by any threat, and deliver precision-guided strikes against a static enemy.

The demands of the GWOT quickly outpaced the performance characteristics of the Hunter UAV, and as early as 2002 the US Army began looking for a replacement capable of carrying multiple payloads, which would enable it to perform reconnaissance, surveillance, target acquisition, command and control, communications relay, signals intelligence (SIGINT), electronic warfare (EW), as well as attack, detect improvised explosive devices (IEDs), and carry out battle damage assessment missions – in short, a jack of all trades.

The main factor driving the design of the Hunter follow-on was a threat-free environment, which made accomplishing the multitude of assigned mission profiles possible. The MQ-1C was chosen from a competition, and by 2009 the US Army had begun taking deliveries of it. By 2010, the MQ-1C had seen combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan, with its preferred weapons system being the laser-guided Hellfire missile (although the Grey Eagle can also carry Stinger missiles configured for air-to-air use, and the GBU-44/Viper laser-guided bomb.)

As effective as the Grey Eagle was against Iraqi insurgents, the Afghan Taliban, and ISIS terrorists, there was a recognition within the US Army that it was not up to the demands of what the US military was calling “joint all-domain operations,”– the so-called “future fight” against peer-level opponents like Russia. The line-of-sight sensors that had proven so lethal in the counter-insurgency mission of the GWOT no longer applied – if you could see the enemy, then the enemy could see you, and kill you.

If the Grey Eagle were to be viable and survive on the modern battlefield, it would require new sensors that provided standoff target identification, which could be used to support the Army’s anticipated long-range precision fires (LRPF) capabilities. The new Grey Eagles must be able to survive against an “Integrated Air Defense System (IADS)-rich environment,” according to a solicitation put out by the US Army, flying “racetrack patterns tangential to the IADS threat at 80 km distance” and deploying so-called air-launched effects (ALE) systems – sensor-equipped mini-drones – into enemy territory to detect, identify and locate targets for subsequent destruction.

This capability does not currently exist in the US military, which means that the Grey Eagles the US is planning on providing to Ukraine are not configured to fight and survive on the modern battlefield that is the Russian-Ukraine fight. The MQ-1C is twice the size of Ukraine’s most ubiquitous drone, the Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2. While the TB2 had some success in Libya, Syria, and Nagorno-Karabakh, and performed well against Russia in the early phases of the special military operation, Russia was able to shore up its air defenses and eventually shot down 35 of the 36 TB2s provided to Ukraine prior to the conflict, and most of the 12 TB2s delivered to Ukraine since the fighting began. It is highly likely that the MQ-1C will suffer a similar fate.

This, of course, may be the intent of the US. The number of Grey Eagles scheduled to be delivered to Ukraine – four – is small, and even if they were able to survive on the battlefield, they would not have a discernible impact on the course of the conflict. But if the operations of the Grey Eagle against Russian forces in Ukraine were looked at as a real-world laboratory for the development of tactics capable of defeating Russian IADS, then for the price of four MQ-1Cs, the US would be able to save hundreds of millions more in research and development expenditures.

Ukraine is losing the conflict against Russia, and no amount of military equipment supplied to the Ukrainian military by the US and other Western nations will be able to change this outcome. The US knows this, and thus one must question the utility of providing such a high-tech system as the MQ-1C in such limited numbers and at this stage of the conflict. The only rational answer is that the US is seeking to use the Russian operation as a real-world laboratory, where the “rats” are Russian and Ukrainian soldiers. The cynicism of such an exercise is astounding, something Ukrainians should remember when the final cost of this NATO-driven conflict is calculated, and Russia should never forget (or forgive) when dealing with the US going forward.

The Ideology of the NHS

When it comes to vaccines for children

The Naked Emperor’s Newsletter | June 6, 2022

Last July, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) in the UK advised that children at increased risk of serious coronavirus (COVID-19) disease should be offered a vaccine. However they said that they are “not currently advising routing vaccination of children outside of these groups [with underlying health conditions], based on the current evidence.

In December, the JCVI advised that children aged 5-11 years in a clinical risk group, or who are a household contract of someone who is immunosuppressed should be offered primary course vaccination.

Then, in February of this year, the JCVI advised that a non-urgent offer of the Pfizer vaccine would be made to children aged 5 to 11 years of age who are not in a clinical risk group.

Not many parents took up this non-urgent offer for their children. The JCVI clearly did not think vaccinating young children was necessary, so included the strange wording of ‘non-urgent offer’.

However the vaccine ideologues in the National Health Service (NHS) had other ideas. Does it matter that the experts don’t think it’s necessary? No, we must vaccinate everyone. Vaccines are good. Vaccines will save us. Vaccines are our road to redemption.

NHS trusts began writing to children directly, using blank envelopes, almost as if they were attempting to bypass the parents. A Telegraph article reported that

“A brightly coloured letter covered in flowers, rainbows and bumblebees said the recipients could now book a vaccination and it provided a link to where they could do so. It also contained an unmarked packet of sunflower seeds, “to help bring some joy and sunshine into children’s live”, the letter read”.

It’s verging on being semi-religious or cult-like.

Another parent said their child’s letter said “Come and see our superheroes and princesses at the vaccination centre. Feel free to dress up!”.

I understand the need for the bureaucrats in the NHS to be seen to be doing something but seriously, back off. The experts have clearly shown that Covid vaccination is not urgent or necessary for young children, so it is not for the NHS bureaucrats to think they know better.

And why the blank envelopes and addressing children directly? It is all getting a bit sinister whether it is being done with the best of intentions or not. This type of coercion does not sit readily with informed consent.

Now, the NHS have updated their vaccination schedule to include the COVID-19 vaccine for 5-15 year olds.

Again, this does not allow informed consent because, by listing it with the usual vaccines, it will be seen as something that should be done, instead of the non-urgent offer that it actually is.

Many parents will be guilt-tripped in to vaccinating their children because they won’t want to answer awkward questions when they visit their GP. Why is there a missing vaccination on your child’s record? Ok jab them doctor, just don’t tell social services.

The NHS bureaucrats need to take a step back, stop trying to do something to make themselves seem useful and most importantly, stop trying to circumnavigate parental consent.

Are We Entering the Next Phase of Our Medical Despotism?

By Rob Slane | The Blog Mire |  June 10, 2022 

One of the many things that continues to baffle me about the public response to all things Covid, is that the number of people demanding answers to the following questions is pitifully and inexplicably low:

  1. Who was behind the creation of SARS-CoV-2?
  2. Why were they making it?
  3. How and why did it get unleashed on the world?

These questions should unite both those who believe with their whole heart that Lockdowns were necessary and saved lives, and those like me who believe they were utterly futile on their own terms, and have caused untold destruction. They should unite both those who believe that masks were necessary and saved lives, and those like me who believe them to have been utterly futile on their own terms, and a destructive dehumanising force designed to perpetuate fear. They should unite both those who think that the so-called vaccines were safe and effective, and those who believe these blood-clotting, immune-suppressing, gene-editing injections to have been useless on their own terms, and the cause of mass casualties, which will one day be found to have killed millions upon millions of people over the course of several years.

All of us should be demanding who was behind this, why they were doing it, and how it came to be unleashed on humanity. For the fact is that a cytotoxic Spike Protein, with HIV Gp120 inserts which infect and destroy immune cells, was created in a laboratory and added to a coronavirus in gain-of-function research. Why are people not interested in who did this to them and why? Why are they not interested in who was behind something that was used to basically mess up their lives, and the entire planet, for the last two years, and long into the future.

If this were a movie, everybody would be waiting with baited breath for the super villains — Fauci, Daszak, Baric, Gates, Schwab to name but five — to face the reckoning. And yet crickets. It’s a bit like if Hitler had survived in 1945 and the Jews and other people groups who suffered under his murderous regime shrugged their shoulders and said, “We need to move on. When’s my next holiday coming?” To those who think the comparison is ludicrous, I would point out that the official number of deaths from the lab-created, souped up coronavirus now exceeds the number 6 million — an infamous historical number — and I would add to it that the number of deaths from Phase 2 of the operation will, in the end, dwarf that number many times over.

What do I mean Phase 2 of the operation? I mean the fiendishly clever plan to inject billions of people around the world with a totally new, experimental product which would cause their bodies to produce the same gain-of-function Spike Protein, replete with the HIV Gp120 insert, by the billions, for an unknown amount of time. The entire point of Phase 1 — the release of the lab-created SARS-CoV-2 — was to create the fear that would lead to these injections. Does anybody seriously still believe these products were an improvised, off-the-cuff response to that virus? If so, perhaps they’d care to explain how all four major manufacturers of these products (Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson) all just happened to choose the same cytotoxic Spike Protein as the part of the virus that the human body would produce? As Mike Yeadon, former Pfizer VP for Allergy and Respiratory Research has pointed out, it is the most dangerous part of the virus, as well as that which mutates the most quickly, making it the most unsuitable part to use in a vaccine. And yet four companies did just that. Perhaps they’d also care to explain Moderna’s confidentiality agreement with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to ‘transfer mRNA coronavirus vaccine candidates’ in December 2019. There is no doubt at all that Covid-19 was known about long before you and I ever got to hear about it, as this mention of it in the US Department of Defense database in November 2019, in a contract connected to one of those harmless and benevolent Ukrainian biolabs, clearly shows. There is, therefore, no doubt that the manufacturers of the bioweapon masquerading as a vaccine knew about it and were on it well before it was a thing for the rest of us.

These so-called vaccines, which were never safe nor effective, have already killed or maimed millions around the world. But the real damage is only just beginning. Not only do they train the body to produce antibodies to fight a non-existent enemy — the long-departed original SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein, which is a bit like the 21st Century British Army training to fight a battalion in Hitler’s Wehrmacht — but even more crucially, they infect and kill crucial T-cells. Which is why the ‘vaccinated’ keep getting Covid reinfections — their immune systems have been left defenseless, and with each recurring bout it becomes increasingly depleted.

Which brings us on to Phase 3. Whilst Phase 1 was about freaking people out with a virus that was dangerous to very few (albeit eminently treatable), and Phase 2 was about injecting people with the poison shot masquerading as the solution, Phase 3 is — I believe — all about covering up the effects of the depleted immune systems of millions of people, to ensure that most people continue to ask no questions and many of them ‘go gentle into that good night’. How? By the release of another lab-created, gain-of-function pathogen, which will be used to explain away the ‘mysterious’ deaths of people with crippled immune systems. If Phase 1 and 2 were fiendishly clever, this is from the pit of Gehenna itself.

Alarmingly, there is a probability that such a pathogen has indeed been released, although it is still too early to know if this is what a grinning William Gates III described as ‘the next one’. Much like the Event 201 simulation in October 2019, which just happened to simulate a global coronavirus pandemic, at the March 2021 Munich Security Conference a ‘Tabletop Exercise’ was conducted entitled, ‘Strengthening Global Systems to Prevent and Respond to High-Consequence Biological Threats.’ Here’s the blurb:

“The exercise scenario portrayed a deadly, global pandemic involving an unusual strain of monkeypox virus that emerged in the fictional nation of Brinia and spread globally over 18 months. Ultimately, the exercise scenario revealed that the initial outbreak was caused by a terrorist attack using a pathogen engineered in a laboratory with inadequate biosafety and biosecurity provisions and weak oversight. By the end of the exercise, the fictional pandemic resulted in more than three billion cases and 270 million fatalities worldwide.”

Hmm? A Monkeypox pandemic! Starting when exactly? Why, would you believe it — in mid-May 2022. And lo and behold, in mid-May 2022, an outbreak of an unusual strain of Monkeypox began. As per the timeline set out on page 10 of their document, the international response would then start around 5th June 2022. And would you believe it, in this last week which began on 5th June, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) update its alert level for Monkeypox to Level 2the UK Government upgraded Monkeypox to the same category of diseases as leprosy and plague, and the WHO came along to claim that the virus may be spread by ‘community transmission’. Add to this that this particular strain of Monkeypox appears to have been lab-created, and almost inexplicably appeared in about 10 western countries at the same time, and it looks like the timeline in the simulation might not have been entirely a coincidence.

I’m genuinely unsure at this point whether Monkeypox is Phase 3. I’ve heard many say that it would be impossible to create the same level of fear as with Covid, but I’m not so sure. The 2021 Tabletop Exercise had 270 million deaths by the end of 2023, and I have this horrible feeling that a new lab-created pathogen, unleashed on a world where millions have just had their immune systems horribly damaged, could send many to untimely deaths. I pray not; I fear so.

But whether the next thing is Monkeypox, or the great Bird Flu pandemic, as predicted by former CDC Director Robert Redfield, or perhaps Covid redivivus, it is quite clear to anyone with their eyes open and their wits about them that we are well and truly enslaved in the Medical Despotism I predicted back in April 2020:

‘Being “led by the science” is turning out to be an unmitigated disaster, yet it will be “the science” — or Government-approved science — which will be proposed as the saviour. To stop such situations occurring again, we will be told that we must avail ourselves of more technology, more monitoring, more checks, more vaccines, more controls. … Personally, I’d rather trust myself into the hands of the Living God than surrender to the Bill Gatesian Social Distancing Medical Despotism of compulsory vaccines, certifications and health apps that is starting to take shape around us.’

I wish people had listened to the few of us who pleaded with them back then not to fall for the lies of the criminals who were foisting this upon us. Perhaps we could have halted it in its tracks.

Lockdowns: the evidence revisited

Professor Marilyn James, Professor of Health Economics, Professor David Paton, Professor of Industrial Economics | Health Advisory & Recovery Team | June 10, 2022

“It is possible that lockdown will go down as one of the greatest peacetime policy failures in modern history” – Professor Douglas Allen[1]

In March 2021, we wrote two sections in ‘Covid-19 the evidence’, namely ‘Economic impacts – the true cost of lockdown’ and ‘Lockdowns – do they work?’.  Over a year later, we have revisited not only the financial costs of lockdowns but also the societal costs, the impact on healthcare and the lack of evidence for overall benefit.

Assessing the economic costs of lockdowns and other Covid-19 restrictions is not easy, partly because the pandemic itself would have impacted economic activity independent of Government restrictions. However, we do now have considerable evidence that both voluntary behaviour change and government restrictions have significant economic effects.[2],[3] Further, voluntary changes tend to have most impact on the activity of groups most vulnerable to Covid, whilst Government restrictions have a disproportionate effect on those least vulnerable. This means that not only do most mandatory restrictions have a significant economic impact, but any benefits in terms of reductions in hospitalisations or deaths are minimal.[4]

Many of the immediate economic consequences of lockdowns were masked by the eye-watering amount of money spent by governments on furlough and business support schemes.  Given the limited evidence that stay-at home measures and business closures have any significant impact on infection rates[5], the question needs to be asked whether the billions spent paying business to shut down and people not to work could have been used better by building up capacity in the health system. The stay at home message of “protect the NHS” may have been no more than elaborate code for don’t highlight years of dwindling funding that failed to keep pace with growing population and demand in health care, with the NHS entering the pandemic with spending per GDP at the lowest level since 2009.[6]

Although furlough and business support schemes have had success in limiting the impact on unemployment, the longer-term economic consequences of lockdowns are now becoming clear. The lack of spending opportunities during lockdown contributes to a build-up of personal and corporate savings. As restrictions have eased, people begin to spend these savings and, combined with the supply chain issues that have built up in the meantime, sustained inflation is the inevitable result. Even worse, having spent about £70 billion[7] paying healthy people not to work via the furlough scheme and some £150 billion in total on support measures[8], the ability of the government to respond to this lockdown-induced cost-of-living crisis via either tax cuts or increased benefits, is limited due to the hit to public finances caused by lockdown-induced government spending.

It is perhaps no surprise that a series of research papers looking at data from Australia[9], the UK[10], Canada[11] and the US[12], have concluded that the costs of lockdowns exceed any plausible estimate of the benefits many times over.

The pandemic saw one disease prioritised over all others. It is now painfully clear that the “all others” are set to suffer with longer and larger health consequences than those of the covid-19 crisis itself. The report issued by the BMA is terrifying in every sense.[13] At the start of the pandemic 4.24m were waiting for elective treatment this now stands at 6.18m. Ridsdale makes the point “stay home” may well have contributed to excess deaths as people died at home without access to care and government policy prioritised covid above all other health concerns[14]. This figure of 6.18m masks and continues to mask the lack of referrals that occurred. There is no reason to suppose demand has dropped for elective care, yet, since the pandemic there have been 4.51 m fewer elective referrals. The latest figures show some 300,000 are waiting over a year for treatment. Again, this figure is masked by GPs under referring, reporting their ability to make referrals is severely constrained, yet the patients are still sitting at primary care level needing care. If the elective surgical figure continues to remain well below pre pandemic levels, NHS waiting lists will only continue to rise. Add to this routinely soaring long waits of over 12 hours at emergency department level and the gap between target time for cancer surgery and actual time to getting surgery increasing, the health picture created by covid prioritisation in the UK is frightening.

Lockdowns created isolation from our social and working worlds. The latest report from MIND states “Isolation and loneliness have made people’s mental health worse – with young people particularly badly affected.”[15] Similar can be said for older people especially those in care homes. The unintended consequences of removing activity, family and social interaction from the elderly may be more serious than the direct disease consequences of covid, with isolation being listed as cause of death in a number of care homes in the USA.[16]

Given what we now know, it is hard to disagree with the conclusion of Professor Doug Allen’s analysis of lockdown costs and benefits in Canada that “lockdown will go down as one of the greatest peacetime policy failures in modern history.” 1

Russia accuses US of concealing data on biolabs

Samizdat | June 12, 2022

The US has been concealing information about its “military biological activity” in the post-Soviet states, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Sunday. This, according to Zakharova, raises “serious questions” about Washington’s compliance with the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC).

In an interview with TASS published on Sunday, Zakharova said, “the United States prefers to remain silent about the ongoing work in the post-Soviet space and does not provide information within a framework of the BTWC confidence-building measures.”

“Assertions that the activity of the Pentagon and related structures is focused solely on health issues are not true. Clearly, health care assistance does not require the involvement of the US military,” Zakharova said.

She added that Washington’s claims that it is collecting biomaterial and monitoring the epidemiological situation “only reinforce and intensify” Russia’s fears over America’s compliance with the BTWC.

Moscow’s recently published evidence regarding the alleged sprawling network of US-funded biolabs across Ukraine only adds to the suspicions, Zakharova said.

In a series of briefings starting in March, the Russian military has presented evidence of the Pentagon’s involvement in funding laboratories in Ukraine. According to Russia’s Investigative Committee, the US poured more than $224 million into biological research in Ukraine between 2005 and early 2022. Western pharmaceutical giants, nonprofits, and even the US Democratic Party were involved in the scheme, Moscow claims.

The Pentagon has “significantly expanded its research potential not only in the field of creating biological weapons, but also obtaining information about antibiotic resistance and the presence of antibodies to certain diseases in populations of specific regions” while working in Ukraine, Lieutenant-General Igor Kirillov, the head of the Russian Radiation, Chemical and Biological Protection Force, said in May.

Zakharova also pointed out that the US has not yet withdrawn its reservation to the 1925 Geneva Protocol for the prohibition of biological and chemical weapons. The US was among the countries that declared the protocol would cease to be binding regarding enemy states that do not observe the prohibitions of the protocol.

In this regard, “the question quite reasonably arises about the real goals of the Pentagon’s international military biological activity,” Zakharova said.

Earlier this week, the Pentagon published the ‘Fact Sheet on WMD Threat Reduction Efforts with Ukraine, Russia and Other Former Soviet Union Countries’. In the document, the US military said that following the collapse of the Soviet Union, the US and its partners have led “cooperative efforts to reduce legacy threats from nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons left in the Soviet Union’s successor states, including Russia.”

According to the Pentagon, the US has “worked collaboratively to improve Ukraine’s biological safety, security, and disease surveillance for both human and animal health,” by providing support to “46 peaceful Ukrainian laboratories, health facilities, and disease diagnostic sites over the last two decades.” These programs have focused on “improving public health and agricultural safety measures at the nexus of nonproliferation.”

In the same paper, the US military accused Russia and China attempting “to undermine this work by spreading disinformation and sowing mistrust in the people and institutions all over the world that contribute to WMD threat reduction.”

According to Zakharova, Moscow considers this publication part of Washington’s “information campaign” aimed at justifying its military biological activities in the post-Soviet space and to “divert the attention of the international community from its true non-transparent and unseemly direction.”

Independent Pharmacovigilance Report Confirms Evidence for Recall of Covid-19 Vaccines

World Council for Health | June 11, 2022

Adverse Reactions for Novel Covid-19 Vaccines More Numerous Than for Similar Products by Factor of Between 10 and 169

BATH, UK — A new report prepared by the World Council for Health (WCH) has confirmed that data on adverse drug reactions from the experimental Covid-19 vaccines exist in an amount sufficient for the recall of similar products in the past.

The report was prepared to determine whether sufficient pharmacovigilance data exist on official and public databases (WHO VigiAccess, CDC VAERS, EudraVigilance, and UK Yellow Card Scheme) to establish a safety signal on the novel Covid-19 injections.

On all databases, it was found that adverse drug reaction (ADR) reports linked to Covid-19 injections are more numerous than other similar products by a factor of between 10 and 169 (see graph below). Many of the ADR reports are serious in nature and there exists sufficient evidence of associated harm on these databases to indicate a product recall.

Total Adverse Events per Pharamacovigilance Database

In total, more than 40,000 deaths are linked to the novel Covid-19 vaccines in the official databases analysed.

In addition, the WCH pharmacovigilance report found that several thousand adverse drug reactions on official databases are related to the use of the experimental Covid-19 vaccines among young boys and girls for whom the vaccine had not been approved at the time.

The purpose of pharmacovigilance databases is to provide a signal of safety, and not to prove causality. To ensure that harms are detected in time, suspicion that an event is linked to the administration of the medicine is enough to register an event. “There is no need to prove that the medicine caused the adverse reaction, just the suspicion is good enough,” Dr. June Raine, head of the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, said in 2006. When sufficient pharmacovigilance data show a signal of harm, administration of the product should be ceased, the product recalled, and the safety signal investigated.

It should also be noted that such systems of passive surveillance result in significantly fewer ADR reports than active surveillance reporting. As a result, the actual number of adverse events that occurred in temporal relation to Covid-19 injections is likely to be much higher than revealed by the available official data.

In December 2021, World Council for Health called on regulators and governments around the world to immediately cease use of all experimental Covid-19 injections.

Dr. Tess Lawrie, co-founder of the World Council for Health, calls for people to come together to raise awareness of vaccine injury so that those harmed can get the help they deserve. “It is concerning that a grassroots organisation has had to do this work and point out that none of these experimental vaccines are safe according to publicly available official data. Why have the regulators not done their job and protected us?“

Gaza Running Out of Bread as Authorities Struggle to Find a Solution

Samizdat – 12.06.2022

There are roughly 2.3 million people in the Gaza Strip and they consume 500 tons of flour a day. For years, they have relied on exports from Russia and Ukraine but the outbreak of Moscow’s special military operation has disrupted these supplies sending prices to unprecedented heights. Wheat has long been a staple of Palestinian cuisine.

The outbreak of hostilities between Russia and Ukraine, however, and the subsequent shortage of wheat has led to Gazans tightening their belts.

Adham Al-Basiouny, the official spokesman for the Hamas-run Ministry of Agriculture in Gaza, says the enclave’s small quantities of wheat will barely last weeks.

“What we are seeing now is a serious crisis. We are struggling to obtain wheat and its derivatives. And what we have at present does not exceed 30 percent of our citizens’ needs,” he says.

The Gaza Strip does produce its own wheat – the region has 12,000 dunams (approximately 3,000 acres) of fields producing 4,300 tons annually. But that only answers the needs of three to four percent of the 2.3 million inhabitants. Put another way, if the locals consume 500 tons a day, each year the region produces enough to last only nine days.

Unable to rely on their own production, Gazans have turned to Russia and Ukraine, both of which account for nearly a third of global grain production. The outbreak of hostilities in Ukraine have not only disrupted much-needed wheat supplies – it has also put a rocket under prices, squeezing the already impoverished Gazans, who have been living for years under dire economic conditions, further.

Reports suggest that in recent weeks the Gaza Strip has seen a price spike of 20 percent on wheat and its derivatives. In an area, where nearly 60 percent live below poverty line, that rise has not gone unnoticed.

Al-Basiouny says he doesn’t believe the crisis will reach the levels of unrest and clashes which existed in Egypt back in the Seventies. But he acknowledges the situation is acute and that his government needs to do “everything in its power” to cater for the needs of the population.

One of the measures Hamas – that has been running the enclave since 2007 – has already taken is to approach other wheat-producing countries, such as Canada and Australia, to make good the shortfall. Their prices, however, turned out to be higher than those demanded by Russia and Ukraine so the government, whose annual budget is normally no greater than $1 billion, is still struggling to find grain.

Hamas has also threatened local millers and bakery owners with fines and punishments if they are caught manipulating prices.

However, that move has run into certain obstacles, not least because those local merchants who have been importing wheat from the West at inflated prices are reluctant to operate at a loss. They, therefore, are angry with the government for forcing them to work for what they consider to be peanuts.

Once again, Hamas needs to find a solution, and Al-Basiouny says the organisation has no choice but to lobby support from rich donors.

“Right now, we are communicating with a number of donor countries such as Qatar, who would provide us with financial assistance to buy flour,” he says. “We also get flour from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) that provides bread to Palestinian refugees in the enclave, who account for about 85 percent of all residents.”

So far, reliance on what UNRWA provides has kept things stable. But with more and more donors to the organisation cutting back on spending, a situation where Gazans are starving for bread could just be a matter of time.
