What’s in Your COVID Vaccine? FDA Asks judge If They Can Hide the Details for Another 55 Years

Granite Grok - Thu, 2021-11-18 14:30 +0000

It’s all fun and games, right. Those conspiracy nuts with their magnets are squawking about spidery junk and tracking devices in the COVID vax. The list gets longer every day, but the FDA has asked a judge to let them hide the details for another 55 years.

You won’t find out fully what’s in it or how the FDA went about the approval process (for Comirnaty) until 2076.

 

It took the FDA precisely 108 days from when Pfizer started producing the records for licensure (on May 7, 2021) to when the FDA licensed the Pfizer vaccine (on August 23, 2021).   Taking the FDA at its word, it conducted an intense, robust, thorough, and complete review and analysis of those documents in order to assure that the Pfizer vaccine was safe and effective for licensure. While it can conduct that intense review of Pfizer’s documents in 108 days, it now asks for over 20,000 days to make these documents available to the public.

 

For those keeping track at home, that’s about 110 booster shots from now.

And I’m assuming this will be like the documents on of the Kennedy Assassination, the expiration of a Disney copyright, or the prophesied CO2-driven Man-Made Global Apocolypse. When the blessed date arrives, someone will have managed to get it extended. Always just out of reach.

And it keeps the conspiracy rolling and the narrative that they are nuts the so-called experts can pretend it’s true. It also protects ‘safe and effective.”

Will a judge say yes to that request, or has the FDA jumped the shark on this one? If the former, should we expect a hack or a whistleblower of this FDA data?

Hacking the FBI wasn’t that difficult for someone. How hard can it be to crack the FDA firewall?

No, I’m not suggesting it, but if a judge agrees to bury all the approval documentation for over five decades, someone is going to try or try harder.

Here’s to hoping we learn all of the truth. However, we come by it.

 

*Comirnaty, as I understand it, is chemically the same as the original covid juice but legally different, and this distinction is what the FDA approved. The initial COVID vaccines are still authorized emergency use, which is the booster you’ll be getting if you are still willing to play their game.

ACTION ALERT: Last Chance to Stop the $22M COVID DATABASE Federal Grant

Granite Grok - Thu, 2021-11-18 13:00 +0000

The NH Executive Council (EC) rejected a $22M federal grant with a 4-1 vote on October 13, 2021. The purpose of the grant was to implement a federal program to track and manage the COVID-19 vaccine status of every NH resident.

The grant money is for a statewide database that will be managed by NH under the direction of the federal HHS (see contract language below). The collected data will be used by NH to implement the state’s COVID-19 vaccine management system. The data will also be shared with the federal government (see contract language below) and combined with the data from every other state, thereby creating a national COVID-19 vaccine tracking database.

Governor Sununu was not happy with the EC vote, so he pressured the Councilors to reverse their decision with another vote last week that was unannounced to the public beforehand. It’s unacceptable.

EMAIL OR CALL THE JOINT FISCAL COMMITTEE MEMBERS ASAP!

There is one more chance to stop the funding of this massive federal overreach. The Joint Fiscal Committee Members have the authority to reject the federal money.

Please call or email each committee member and request they stop the funding of this massive federal overreach.

If you would like to understand what has taken place and why this issue is important… details are provided below the contact list.

Joint Fiscal Committee Members Senators Phone Email Senate President Chuck Morse R 603.271-2111 Chuck.Morse@leg.state.nh.us Shannon Girard Shannon.Girard@leg.state.nh.us Senator Bob Giuda R 603.271.3042 Bob.Giuda@leg.state.nh.us Senator Gary Daniels R 603.271.4980 Gary.Daniels@leg.state.nh.us Senator Lou D’Allesandro D 603.271.2117 Lou.Dallesandro@leg.state.nh.us Senator Cindy Rosenwald D 603.271.3207 Cindy.Rosenwald@leg.state.nh.us Representatives Phone Email Representative Karen Umberger (Chair) R 603.356.6881 karenumberger@gmail.com Representative Jess Edwards R 603.370.7885 jess.edwards@leg.state.nh.us Representative Keith Erf R 603.529.2512 Keith.Erf@leg.state.nh.us Representative Tracy Emerick D 603.498.6002 tracyemerick@gmail.com Representative Peter Leishman D 603.924.0004 prleishman@aol.com Alternates Phone Email Representative Bob Lynn R 603.598.1899 rjlynn4@gmail.com Representative Joseph Pitre R 603.755.2447 house@joepitre.com Representative Mary Jane Wallner D 603.225.5249 Maryjane.Wallner@leg.state.nh.us

While you are at it, you might want to respectfully let Governor Sununu know how you feel about his inability to protect NH’s interests from federal control.

Phone: (603) 271-2121 Email: governor.nh.gov

ATTEND THE JOINT FISCAL COMMITTEE MEETING

Another way that you can help is by attending the Joint Fiscal Committee meeting THIS FRIDAY (11/19/21) in Room 210-211 at 10am in the Legislative Office Building (LOB), located at 33 N State St, Concord.

Your QUIET AND RESPECTFUL presence is essential to emphasize the importance that the Committee reject the funding.

WHY IS THIS ISSUE IMPORTANT?

If implemented, the vaccine status program will usurp NH’s sovereignty regarding how our state manages Covid-19. Additionally, final decision making authority will be delegated to the federal government. Apparently Governor Sununu hasn’t read the grant contract, because he continues to claim there are “no strings attached” to it.

But that is simply not true. Page 17 of the grant contract mandates that NH must “comply with existing and/or future directives“ from the federal HHS Secretary “regarding control of the spread of COVID-19.” The types of “controls” include “the implementation and enforcement of federal orders related to quarantine and isolation.”

1) comply with existing and/or future directives and guidance from the Secretary regarding control of the spread of COVID-19;
2) in consultation and coordination with HHS, provide, commensurate with the condition of the individual, COVID-19 patient care regardless of the individual’s home jurisdiction and/or appropriate public health measures (e.g., social distancing, home isolation); and
3) assist the United States Government in the implementation and enforcement of federal orders related to quarantine and isolation.
Recipient will comply with Section 18115 of the CARES Act, with respect to the reporting to the HHS Secretary of results of tests intended to detect SARS- CoV-2 or to diagnose a possible case of COVID-19. Such reporting shall be in accordance with guidance and direction from HHS and/or CDC.
The recipient is expected to provide to CDC copies of and/or access to COVID-19 data collected with these funds, including but not limited to data related to COVID-19 testing.

Committing NH to follow unknown future directives from the federal government is unconscionable.

The thought of quarantine and isolation orders for unvaccinated people may seem far-fetched, but that’s beginning to happen in other countries. Australia has been turned into a Police State, and if you don’t think Governor Sununu has that type of authoritarian mentality – you are wrong.

On October 13, 2021, Governor Sununu ordered 80 State Troopers to be present at the 10/13/21 Executive Council meeting for 150 attendees. Nine Americans were arrested for no apparent reason. Seven of those arrested were sitting quietly. One was charged with disorderly conduct for simply saying “Amen” (click here to see the charges).

When the governor’s egregious actions were exposed, he then secretly pressured over 100 State Reps to cover up his actions in a closed door meeting.

None of this smells right. We don’t need the federal government to direct the management of NH’s affairs. We don’t need armies at Executive Council meetings. There needs to be an investigation.

Please help spread the word.

See you on Friday morning!

OSHA Suspends Vaccine Mandate – For Now….

Granite Grok - Thu, 2021-11-18 11:30 +0000

From the underreported file, the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued an update related to its rule (29 CFR 1910, Subpart U) requiring some businesses to mandate COVID19 vaccination for all employees.

On November 12, 2021, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit granted a motion to stay OSHA’s COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard, published on November 5, 2021 (86 Fed. Reg. 61402) (“ETS”). The court ordered that OSHA “take no steps to implement or enforce” the ETS “until further court order.” While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in the litigation.

 

Loosley translated: until the courts rule, we can’t do much.

What does that mean? Not a lot.

Employers at or above 100 employees may still do a bit of trimming just in case to get their numbers below. Job creators thinking about adding jobs that would have put them over 100 employees will continue to hold off or rethink their plans. And businesses with for more than that will either continue with mandates they already intended (see also wanted) or create a plan and put it on hold.

The latter depends on the size and #wokeness of your employer.

The Health Industry is massive but openly shedding thousands if not millions of positions nationally under ( I presume) the assumption that there’s no real competition. In states like New Hampshire, the Legislature has protected that monopoly, but in its absence, with so many doctors and nurses out of work, the term ‘Free Clininc’ could take on a new meaning.

Care centers free from COVID mandates.

Left to their own devices, medical professionals can and will create these options for Americans.

Who among us believes anyone, at this point, will be left to their own devices? Never again, except in states that stand up for their citizens and job creators. Wouldn’t it be nice if we felt confident that we lived in one of those?

Mike Sylvia Comments to the Belknap County Delegation

Granite Grok - Thu, 2021-11-18 02:30 +0000

Comments delivered Tuesday, 11/16: We are here tonight to address what has become a hot topic around Belknap county and beyond; Gunstock Mountain Resort.

Let’s start with a point on which all agree; Gunstock is a valuable county asset. As such it is in the interest of all in the county to assure it continues to be properly run and maintained. As far as I know there is no one that is interested in closing or harming Gunstock.

Many people have been chiming in with their opinions on the proper operation of the Gunstock ski area. Having attended most Gunstock Area Commission (GAC) meetings for the past couple of years I have to ask, where have you been?

We want to thank NH State Rep Mike Sylvia for this Op-Ed. If you have an Op-Ed or LTE
you would like us to consider, please submit it to Editor@GraniteGrok.com.

 

If all those who write letters to the local paper had been attending GAC meetings, we might not be in the position which requires involvement of the delegation. The letters you write are based solely on information delivered by sources that have their own agenda. You have been used to support a plan of which you know little. Even those who have been following the actions of the GAC have only partial knowledge of the soon to be reveled Master Plan. It might be a useful exercise to ask the GAC when they voted to approve the Master Plan and when the public was allowed to comment on said plan.

Gunstock is a county owned and operated asset. It is not a private business. The GAC is a public body appointed by the Belknap county delegation. As a public entity it is required to adhere to the public meeting laws under RSA 91-A. The development of the Master Plan has had little to no public input and seems to have been produced by a subcommittee of the GAC, yet such a subcommittee has not met publicly nor produced minutes of any meetings. If this is true it is a violation of the right-to-know law, RSA 91-A. If it is not true the GAC can produce records of meeting dates and minutes, along with recommendations from the subcommittee made to the GAC. I have seen no evidence supporting the existence of such records.

GAC By-laws

Article II

Article III

Many letter writers have questioned the timing of the delegations action against members of the GAC. It was not the delegation that demanded the removal of commissioner Ness. The GAC put this issue on the table when they produced a defamatory and baseless claim against Ness. The GAC voted to get a legal opinion regarding the validity of their ethics policy, yet the resulting report from attorney Quarles wandered into defamatory allegations which lacked support of any witnesses or testimony. The GAC voted to censure commissioner Ness without due process. This key failure, to assure that the claim which was delivered to the delegation had merit, is the reason it was dismissed.

While there is currently insufficient evidence available, the GAC votes lacking verifiable facts might be considered reckless and harmful actions against a public official and should be referred to the Attorney General. The report produced by attorney Quarles went beyond the issue of the ethics policy which was approved by the GAC. The report was clearly defamatory. Motivation for the production of the report may be tried to commissioner Ness’ diligence in seeking information necessary to his duties as a member of the GAC. As the scope of work was beyond that which had been authorized, a case for the misuse of funds may be made. Improper Influence – RSA 640:3, Criminal defamation, RSA 644:11, Obstructing Government Administration, RSA 642:1, Official Oppression – RSA 643:1, Conspiracy – RSA 629:3, are criminal elements that may be at issue, along with civil claims that could be brought in the future.

It has been said that the actions of the delegation are unprecedented, and it is true. Unfortunately it is also extremely rare for a board to seek the removal of one of its own members. Once again the delegation is not the initiator of the events. We as a delegation have a duty to ensure that the GAC is properly serving in the public interest. To do anything less is to shirk our responsibilities.

Among many false allegations is an assertion that Gunstock might be closed. This is pure nonsense. Those who spread such absurdities only wish to irresponsibly drum up fear. One is left to speculate as to the source. Perhaps the Laconia Daily Sun would like to advise the public as to the people behind Citizens For Gunstock’s full page ads, or those 2 pages of petition signatures. Sadly it is unlikely that those who signed the petition had much knowledge of that which they signed.

The GAC repeatedly claims credit for the great performance of Gunstock in the past year. While it was a very good year, it would be hard to find a business in outdoor recreation that did not do extremely well in the year of COVID19; housebound people were deprived of their normal activities which would have them in close contact with other people. Boston area skiers unable to get on airplanes swarmed to the north making it a great year for all eastern ski areas. It certainly didn’t hurt to have a reasonably good winter for snow cover. This is said not to diminish the efforts of the employees but to simply put the great fiscal performance in perspective.

Speaking of the financial success of Gunstock, the GAC never fails to remind the public that they have always paid off in a timely fashion their Revenue Anticipation Notes (RAN). It is indeed true. What they never mention is the $6,000,000 default in 2000 which was picked up by county taxpayers. I can assure you the payments made to the county over the past 20 years have not amounted to recovering that loss. I’ll not venture into what kind of bonding might be suggested in the new Master Plan as I have no such knowledge.

As was noticed on Nov. 6, 2021, “On Monday October 25, 2021 attorney Thomas Quarles presented to the Belknap county delegation a Request for Disqualifications (RFD). This request was addressed from four members of the Gunstock Area Commission (GAC), Kiedaisch, Gallagher, McLear, and Dumais. In this request it is made clear by the use of their titles that they are acting as members of GAC.” What is not clear is how attorney Quarles was hired without a meeting of the GAC. This is contrasted by the vote on Nov. 10, 2021 in a public meeting (for which public comment was not allowed) to have attorney Quarles file for a temporary restraining order against the delegation. It appears that attorney Quarles was hired in an unnoticed meeting, prior to producing the RFD, in violation of RSA 91-A. If true, this stands as ‘just cause’ for removal.

Another perplexing question arises from that Nov. 10, 2021 vote to retain counsel. The temporary restraining order explicitly seeks to protect commissioners Kiedaisch, Gallagher and McLear from removal. They had a clear conflict of interest yet they were the only commissioners voting to approve the motion to engage counsel. Expending funds from Gunstock for their own personal protection might be viewed as ‘just cause’ for removal.

Once again, I know of no one that wants to close or harm Gunstock. My only agenda is open and transparent operation of a county asset. I will continue to work for good government and a successful Gunstock Mountain Resort.

Young Americans for Liberty Calls Upon Key Ally to Condemn Controversial Biden Treasury Nominee

Granite Grok - Thu, 2021-11-18 01:00 +0000

National grassroots organization joins forces with State Rep. Michael Yakubovich (R-NH), an immigrant from the Soviet Union, to denounce Biden Treasury nominee Saule Omarova.

Austin, TX – In the wake of President Biden’s nomination of Saule Omarova as Comptroller of the Currency, leaders across the liberty movement are going on the offensive against yet another one of Biden’s nominees. Young Americans for Liberty (YAL)—the nation’s most active youth libertarian organization—is leading the charge.

Omarova, a former Soviet citizen, is extremely outspoken about her communist sympathies. In 2019, she posted a now-infamous tweet claiming that “there was no gender pay gap” in the Soviet Union. Fifteen months later, Omarova controversially statedthat, in order to “tackle climate change,” she wanted smaller companies in the fossil fuel industry “to go bankrupt.” And, in a research paper published by Cornell Law School last month, Omarova proposed shifting all commercial bank accounts to the Federal Reserve, creating a Soviet-style level of control over the finances of American citizens.

As an immigrant from the Soviet Union, New Hampshire State Representative Michael Yakubovich understands the horrors of Marxism and central planning. He said:

“The push to nominate Saule Omarova is a blatant show of the Biden administration’s radical political agenda. As a former citizen of the USSR, I find it appalling that an American presidential administration is defending someone who has such a close loyalty to the repulsive ideas of communist central planning and economic control, which starved millions of people, both in my home country of Belarus and in other countries around the world.”

Michael Yakubovich serves in YAL’s Hazlitt Coalition, a network of more than 170 libertarian-aligned state legislators from nearly 40 states. YAL and the Hazlitt Coalition stand ready to oppose Omarova’s confirmation at all costs.

YAL Senior Spokesperson Eric Brakey, a former member of the Maine State Senate, has also issued a dire warning about Omarova’s agenda. “Untold millions fled (or attempted to flee) the Eastern Bloc in search of freedom, yet Biden’s nominee for Comptroller of the Currency, Saule Omarova, is promoting Soviet-style central planning here in America,” said Brakey. “Her plan to put an ‘end to banking as we know it’ would give the Federal Reserve unprecedented authority to monitor and control the financial transactions of every single American. As the Fed’s inflationary policies wreak havoc on our economy, we should be restoring sound and independent money—not granting more power to unelected bureaucrats over our financial system.”

The Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs committee will hold another hearing on Omarova’s nomination later this month.

You can follow YAL on Twitter @YALiberty. To schedule an interview, please contact Luka Ladan at Luka.Ladan@ZenicaPR.com or (617) 932-9120.

NH-NeverTrumpJournal (aka NH Journal) Continues to Push COVID-Corporatism

Granite Grok - Wed, 2021-11-17 23:30 +0000

Preventing businesses and employers from coercing employees and customers into injecting an experimental drug that does not prevent them from getting COVID or transmitting COVID to others … in order to “protect” them and others from COVID … is “bullying”? Really?

What else falls under NH-NeverTrump’s definition of bullying? Child labor laws? The 40-hour workweek? Overtime pay?

The requirement that employers allow their employees to eat a lunch after a certain number of hours of work? Anti-discrimination laws?

Regulating the presence of asbestos and other carcinogens in the workplace?

 

 

“ConservativeNotCrazy” is using COVID to push corporatism. There is NO EQUIVALENCY between protecting employees and customers from corporate COVID coercion (the NHHouseReps bill) and forcing businesses to engage in corporate COVID coercion (#PresidentPoopyPants). The former represents real conservatism … the latter does not.

“ConservativeNotCrazy” and his ilk … which include Sun-King Sununu … are NEITHER. They are just pathetic shills for woke capitalism.

They have no place in the new Republican Party.

Part 2: Not the Sads but the Willingness to Hurt Others

Granite Grok - Wed, 2021-11-17 22:00 +0000

More reactions from the Eco-Socialists at TreeHugger that I mentioned here “Are the Treehugger Eco-Socialists Having the Sads as They Realize Most People Really Don’t Care?”

The true believers are rather peeved at the “really don’t want to give anything up” folks who aren’t giving things up so they can feel all good and righteous about lowering everybody’s lifestyles to meet their hubris. That wanting to be King Canute and stopping climate change/warming/freezing/chaos:

Rivière calls for governments to take the lead, even if it means implementing unpopular measures. Would this ever happen?

Well, given that more and more of them are trending into that mindset, let me just lay it out clearly thanks to NH State Rep Leigh Webb (D):

“The role of government is to legislate behavior“

Funny, I didn’t see that in the Declaration of Independence, but those two certainly set the stage for now.  And it’s clear that, like all Progressive/Socialists, don’t always even play checkers (much less chess) as they think they are Masters of the Universe in their diktats. They truly believe that they can change just one thing in peoples’ lives and the rest of us just keep everything the same except for that single demand.

Which is why Socialism has never worked for very long even at the north end of a gun barrel. They refuse to understand that the rest of us ALSO get a vote on those changes even if they aren’t exactly “official”. Not one clue as to the real power of the notion of Irish Democracy. The last part of my comment from the above post:

The problem is that most Eco-Socialists presume a status quo that they can manipulate. Yet, over the 120 years that they’ve tried it, they keep failing to see that others re-adapt to their strictures in ways they didn’t consider.

And of course, it wasn’t received well by one of the more militant folks there:

Been ignored for decades, ignored when the changes necessary were relatively gentle, and now we need these difficult and challenging and painful changes to be made. The softly softly please sir yes sir if you could just recycle sir approach isn’t enough now. If people have to be forced to make the necessary changes, so be it.

Deciding for one’s self what is the best course of action? Nay, says this incipient totalitarian (that is becoming far too often across to many domains of our lives).  Meh – if people don’t want to do what we’ve been trying to convince them of, we’ll just take that choice, that Freedom, away from them. No muss, no fuss for us – those rubes will be “re-educated” as to what the ‘good’ live will be for them.

Like my original premise – they really don’t like it that most of us don’t like them. Nor what they want our lives to be like. They don’t care. You know, they’re like Hillary in creating more Deplorables.

Sidenote: and let me put in a shameless Capitalist plug for the new GraniteGrok Deplorable line of stuff that Steve has created.  My old Herman Cain for President t-shirts need replacing so I’ll be buying some (and the Live Free or Die t-shirts) as well.

My immediate reaction to the use of Force was “Slippery Slope”?  Unintended Consequences”?

And in your eyes’ how would that “forced” be done? At the point of a gun (at worst)? Thrown out of their homes? Their stuff involuntarily taken from them?

A “mark placed upon them” such that they could no longer purchase basic goods and services? I hear from history that yellow was a great color for that kind of “apartheid” behavior. And their later accommodations were just SO super cool as well!

The Chinese Communists have a great “Social Credit Surveillance” system now in place – would you have all governments adopt that behavior?

What you are intimating with “forced to make the necessary changes” is instituting Totalitarian government structure world wide. Are you SURE that this is what you would want? For your kids and grandkids to grow up under? Do you really think that would solve the problem?

Without a whole raft of undesirable aftereffects happening at the same time? And do you believe that there would be no push back at all, that the masses would not rebel? Or do you think they would just peacefully go “oh, ok, take my stuff” and be done with it?

That the notion of Freedom would fade under a DoublePlusUnGood 1984 style world?

I wish more THers would think FAR more carefully when they suggest things like this as it blithely flows from their fingertips. Poverty and slavery would be the results – but you’d get your lowered emissions.

Is that your desired trade-off, as Life would NOT proceed “nicely” if your wish was granted. Or enforced.

But do you think they listen to reason and all the things that would happen?  DO THEY CARE ABOUT OTHERS? That’s what the Left keeps saying – that Conservatives don’t care about other people.

And then they let the mask down like this. You see, the devil is in the details but they seldom, at this level, think it through (and the rest seem to be all gung ho in making it happen).

I see that I haven’t generated a response just yet. Did I get another win or are they too fuming and their fingertips are twitching too hard?

F. Joe Biden Came to NH To Tell US We’re Too Stupid To ‘Do This’ Without “Him”

Granite Grok - Wed, 2021-11-17 20:30 +0000

F. Joe Biden was in New Hampshire. He came to stand on a “deficient bridge” to promote the infrastructure deal. Here’s what that truly means.

New Hampshire could not have possibly fixed this bridge without the following series of events.

First, the federal government had to rob New Hampshire of fiscal resources (taxes). It then had to debate how to spend those dollars. After much ado, “they” decided that “we” would be allowed to have some of our money-back “IF” we spent it a certain way.

Without the Feds (Him), this would not have been possible. We’d have had no idea or have even cared or considered such a thing if allowed to keep our money in New Hampshire and make those decisions ourselves.

In other words, we are too stupid to know what to do on our own.

That’s not exactly true, of course. And it’s not just New Hampshire; it’s everywhere but DC. And the goal is not to fix a bridge. It is to burn one.

This massive spending, much of what we see around us, is the winnowing of the middle-class. The goal is to spend the nation into poverty. To make everyone poor and dependent. The poor cannot finance opposition candidates. They can’t pay for political ads or social media campaigns. They can barely stay alive and, if possible, in some measure of comfort.

Poverty is the goal—yours and mine.

Easier to control, command, direct.

And it all starts when you accept that the only way you, or your town, county, or state, can do anything is by allowing the National Government to rob you without resistance to fund their priorities. To rob the future, which they’ve done. A future where they will have to rob everyone but the wealthy elite they promise you are their targets.

States need to look for ways to break the cords that bind them, unlike what our Governor and Executive Council have done in New Hampshire, and to some extent, legislatures past and present.

And when was the last time any member of Congress spent more time trying to keep the money here than they spent bragging about how they might have gotten some of it back?

We need to elect people to protect us from this criminal conspiracy at every level of government.

Does anyone know where we can find some?

 

Note: Gateway Pundit is reporting that wear-a-mask Biden was mingling maskless in tight quarters at this event and even managed to spit some “droplets” on someone.

Cornerstone’s Ian Huyett on the Lawsuit against the Exeter School District Policy –

Granite Grok - Wed, 2021-11-17 19:00 +0000

It seems that the NH School Board Association (“NHSBA”) Policy JBAB is now getting the attention of people who value the First Amendment’s Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion (“free expression”) over the social mob’s outlook.

That anyone disagreeing with them must be punished, Constitutional values or not.

This is the second lawsuit that has been filed, the latest by Cornerstone Action’s Ian Huyett, in the defense of a minor child that plays football for Exeter High School.

His crime?

His faith holds that God created man and woman (male and female) and that one cannot just arbitrarily proclaim that they are now the other sex from that they were conceived.

Related: Cornerstone Files Free Speech Suit Against Exeter School District On Behalf of Student

This issue, as I’ve written before, is both a matter of faith and basic biology.

The Left is demanding that we ignore that basic biological status – their version of “mind over matter” taken to the extreme.

In this case, “John Doe” was punished for standing up for his worldview against a pro-transgender (but not suffering from gender dysphoria himself) student that continued later, off school grounds and via texts.

Those texts were screenshotted and shown to a Vice Principal who, along with the football coach, meted out a week of athletic suspension (later reduced to a single game).

So, here is Ian talking about the lawsuit:

Part of This Local School District’s Lunch Time Protocol Forbids Talking – ‘cuz COVID!

Granite Grok - Wed, 2021-11-17 17:30 +0000

School Districts that have not been prohibited from torturing their students with useless mask and distancing protocols are ramping up the fear campaign.

Mask mandates are propping up, as are distancing demands. One school is even prohibiting students from talking to each other while eating.

 

During lunch, we will follow procedures from last year. When students arrive, they will be required to space out every other seat (6 per lunch table). While eating and masks are off, students will not talk. We expect that of the approximate 25-minute lunch periods, 12-15 minutes will be students coming in, getting lunch, and eating.

 

That sounds like a prison camp.

Achtung. Sit. Eat. Silence or Colonel Klink will give you thirty days in the cooler!

When you are done eating, then maybe you can talk. But only after donning your required and utterly useless mask.

Not a prison, well, not exactly. It’s the Londonderry School District. And the reason kids can’t talk is that they are allowed to remove their useless masks to eat because there’s no other way to do it. Eat, I mean. Well, not yet. Experts are likely working on this to ensure masking and eating can be done simultaneously.

Perhaps they can follow that suggestion out of California. Move the mask to take a bite, then return it while chewing. Stupid.

And while not talking while chewing is common sense and good manners. Mandated silence while eating, aside from being pointless, is sinister.

Any world where that’s the new normal is broken, and we need to fix it.

Maybe if we tell them kids might pray “during the moment of silence,” they’ll be so offended that they’ll drop the idea?

It’s a thought.

So, is this.

Industrial Hygienist Tyson Gabriel reveals mistakes in the mask science that no one has seen before now.  (Industrial Hygienists are the world’s experts on exposure sciences. THE Respiratory Protection experts, that train doctors. These are the kind of folks you find hanging out at OSHA and NIOSH creating the safety protocols and equipment that Hospitals and Biolabs use.)

IH’s are trained to find and understand exposure points and collateral risks created by policy and processes. In this context you will understand the journey through this very eye-opening presentation.

Parents Start Calling for Merrick Garland’s Resignation

Granite Grok - Wed, 2021-11-17 16:00 +0000

Based on whistleblower documentation, we now know that the FBI used counterterrorism tools to investigate parents.

“We are now in receipt of a protected disclosure from a Department Whistleblower showing that the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division is compiling and categorizing threat assessments relating to parents, including… a threat tag to track potential investigations.”

Keep reading below…

 

Parents are now calling for the resignation of the U.S. Attorney General.  He weaponized the Department of Justice and FBI against parents.

I agree, RESIGN!

Vax Pox: Did Wikipedia Stop Listing “Dead Athletes” to Protect the “Safe and Effective” Narrative?

Granite Grok - Wed, 2021-11-17 14:30 +0000

Professional athletes, soccer players, in particular, have been dropping dead in record numbers. We’ve been sharing lists and fishing for more but never checked Wikipedia. They were “keeping track,” but no longer. Is it because the approved narrative is getting uncomfortable.

Safe and Effective doesn’t like the look of this. Not one bit.

The list goes back to 1889, so someone wanted to secure the proper history. All of it. But it stops in mid-October 2021. That’s about the same time online interest in the growing number of collapsing athletes began to grow.

Related: Are An Alarming Number of Athletes Dropping Dead After Getting the COVID Jab?

Just a coincidence, I’m sure. /sarcasm

Here’s a screengrab of the 2021 players listed on Wikipedia ending October 15.

 

 

We’ve shared some of the missing casualties and others in other sports or non-professional athletes here, here, and here.

It’s sad, tragic, and preventable – but refusing The Jab is verboten, and a wide range of occupations are impacted, not the least of which is health care.

I know I said this before, but remember when health care was a right? That implies the ability to not only access it but in a manner relevant to your need.

That is increasingly unlikely as the people who claim to be fighting for that “right” take it away from you via other policy priorities, and there’s a lesson there if you are capable of learning it.

Democrats tell you you deserve something, take it over or regulate it into submission, which damages or destroys it, making the right impossible to attain for all but a few.

“Democrats*” destroy everything they touch, and not that includes professional athletes.

A Quick Post: Normalizing Heart Attacks

Granite Grok - Wed, 2021-11-17 13:00 +0000

In Potassium Metathorinate I described a sci-fi story with the plot device of a hallucinogenic additive in the population’s food that made them compliant, obedient, and lacking of any curiosity about anything contrary to The Narrative presented by the government.

Barring something in the water, or air, or food, or whatever, how do you explain these instances – among legion – of people who are explaining away athlete heart attacks, kids’ heart attacks, etc.?  Because it feels like an utterly desperate attempt to avoid facing the mRNA elephant in the room.

Media Blitz: Surge in Heart Disease Due to ‘Climate Change,’ ‘Broken Heart Syndrome,’ ‘Pandemic Anxiety’

Climate Change May Cause Increased Rates of Heart Defects in Babies

Whether it’s “broken heart syndrome” or “pandemic anxiety” or “climate change” or pot…

 

 

Yes, seriously.  Despite decades – centuries – of marijuana use, suddenly this is a thing?

People die, in unprecedented numbers – and not only is it explained away, people grieving over a vaccine death still urge others to get it:

Neil Astles: British inquest confirms post-injection AstraZeneca death seven months later; family urges others to “get vaccinated”

5 young athletes in 8 days die or suffer career-threatening heart attacks

And from the Grok:

Are An Alarming Number of Athletes Dropping Dead After Getting the COVID Jab?

And the piece de resistance – two actually:

Why can’t anyone explain how these 14 kids died after getting vaccinated?

FOURTEEN CHILDREN DEAD, in an unprecedented way.  And nobody’s curious or throwing red flags.  I’d like to throw a red flag on that lack of curiosity.

We will kill 117 kids to save one child from dying from COVID in the 5 to 11 age range

 

Satan walks openly, and yet none see him.  The blindness is too widespread to be a mere coincidence.

France: Being ‘Vaccinated’ No Longer Enough – No Booster, No Health Passport

Granite Grok - Wed, 2021-11-17 11:30 +0000

French President Emmanuel Macron has done the Left the disservice or proving us right (again). “Those aged 65 and older will need to present proof of a COID19 booster shot from mid-December for health passes.”

Sorry, but the passport you have will no longer be adequate.

 

 

No booster, no health pass. A practice that will descend the age spectrum because why not?

Oh, and it will swiftly reach across the globe to become a twinkle in the eye of public health tyrants everywhere.

 

Related: Is Anyone Surprised to Learn That “The Correct Number of Shots for Maximum Efficacy Isn’t Yet Known”?

 

This leads to obvious questions for the local COVID warlords. If you wouldn’t protect private employees over The Jab, what about the boosters? And does the local economy or some sector of it need to be incapacitated or just nearly before you step up?

Can you step up?

If a Booster mandate leads to attrition and dangerously low staffing in, say, the health care sector, then the original Jab must have as well or all those folks would still be on the job.

And then the next booster, and the next?

It’s quite the quandary but trust me, we’re about to see it play out.

Seventh County GOP Calls For Investigation Into Dictator Sununu

The Liberty Block - Wed, 2021-11-17 04:34 +0000

About Time … Wyoming GOP Expels Liz Cheney

Granite Grok - Wed, 2021-11-17 02:30 +0000

It’s about time. The Wyoming GOP has expelled the Trump-deranged neocon warmonger, Liz Cheney:

Sadly, almost one-half of the the Wyoming equivalent to New Hampshire’s State GOP Committee opposed the measure:

The 31-29 vote Saturday in Buffalo, Wyoming, by the state party central committee followed votes by local GOP officials in about one-third of Wyoming’s 23 counties to no longer recognize Cheney as a Republican.

But a win is a win. GOOD RIDDANCE.

Is Anyone Surprised to Learn That “The Correct Number of Shots for Maximum Efficacy Isn’t Yet Known”?

Granite Grok - Wed, 2021-11-17 01:00 +0000

Two weeks ago, I revisited a thought we may have all been pondering by now. If the Political Health Oligarchy insists on boosters (and it does), will “The Vaccinated” become “unvaccinated” if they skip or miss or refuse one?

 

You stepped up like a good little citizen and played vaccine roulette with the most deadly immunization in US history. It’s killed more people than all other vaccines combined over the past few decades. All because they promised you it was the golden ticket to the Back to Normal Factory.

You go it, but you can still catch COVID and spread it. The vaccine unflattens the curve. And you might even end up in the hospital or dead. The solution to this, according to them, is another shot of the same.

And what if you resist that? Two is enough, no, three, maybe it’s five. Oh, and your job may depend on it!

 

By accepting or advocating the original terms, you have swallowed with it the unwritten fine print. Medical tyranny eternal with rapidly declining access to medical anything else.

 

Related: If The “Vaccinated” Refuse the Booster – How Long Until They Are No Longer “Vaccinated”?

 

I was serious about the risk, have been for many months, and so are they.

 

 

Don’t get too comfortable with your current situation; we might need to jab you a few more times until we get the Desired Results, whatever those are this week.

If you disagree you could experience side effects like “bullying, joblessness, getting canceled, discharge from the military, humiliation, arrest, and incarceration.” 

 

Related: The Myocarditis/Pericarditis Pandemic – Who Has to Die before You Believe?

 

It has no end but is there a line you’ll not cross if no one knows what “the correct number of shots are,” and why would they treat you any differently than they have treated the unvaccinated up until now?

You only got two? What are you, vaccine-hesitant!

And please don’t say you’ve not been warned.

 

The question was not how to perfect people or their government (the excuse Marxists use to justify behaving as badly as any people or government could). It was how do we confine the conflagration of human vices in those drawn to government service so that they do the least amount of damage. …

All of which brings me back to the Plandemic. Not the finer points but the big picture. Public health is just another mule for tyranny. They will use that excuse again to infringe on your rights. So, what are you prepared to do? Can you ask the question and live with the answer?

 

We’re already a good way down this rabbit hole, but there’s still time to turn it around. But if you don’t start now, we’ll all get dragged down with you.

You must understand. This has never been about public health. If unlimited boosters and the shadow of militant political control over the lives of everyone isn’t enough to get you moving, then you deserve what you get.

But the rest of us don’t deserve it, and we won’t stand for it.

We can resolve it on the soapbox or at the ballot box but failing that, the inevitable course, will make life a lot more uncomfortable than being around people without a mask or those who refused to play vaccine roulette.

Sununu Is Not a “Live Free or Die” Champion. He’s a “Live under My Thumb or Die” Champion.

Granite Grok - Tue, 2021-11-16 23:30 +0000

Last November, a week and a half after getting re-elected to his third term as governor, Chris Sununu issued an emergency executive order instituting a masking requirement for everyone in New Hampshire both inside and outside.

For justification, he cited “a significant increase in COVID-19 infections, many caused by community transmission.” He didn’t define “infection” or provide any evidence for his claim about community transmission or provide any clarification about how “many” of the infections were from community transmission.

According to the NH DHHS Covid dashboard, we have more daily “cases” in New Hampshire right now than we did when Sununu ordered the masking mandate, and (obviously) more than when he graciously (as a kind and benevolent emperor) ended the masking mandate this spring.

An “infection” is not the same as a “case,” by the way, but the NH DHHS Covid dashboard provides information only on cases, not infections. Cases are not defined, either, but seem to be merely people with a positive test result. This is of course is misleading because someone who tests positive might not even know they’re sick, they might not have any symptoms. Or they may have mild symptoms. But the dashboard has data for “cases” so we can compare like to like.

On November 19, 2020, the day Sununu issued the masking order, the 7-day average of new cases was 395.5. When Sununu ended the masking order on April 16, 2021, there was a 7-day average of 397.1. So higher than when he made the masking order, actually. Although one could say roughly the same. November 14 is the most recent day with data available and the 7-day average of new cases was 779.3. Almost twice what it was last year when Sununu mandated forced masking.

When Sununu ended the masking mandate, he said it was because of the declining death rate, though. On November 19, 2020, the day he issued the masking order, the 7-day average number of deaths was 1.7. On April 16, 2021, when the masking order ended, the 7-day average number of deaths was 1.6. Again, roughly the same. On the most recent day for which there is data, November 11, 2021, the 7-day average number of deaths was 2.1, higher than last year, but down from a spike of 4.9 on November 1, 2021.

So what’s to stop Sununu from declaring another state of emergency and doing another masking mandate? According to the stats he used before, he should already have redeclared a state of emergency. Maybe he’ll do a vaccine mandate, as well, this time? Yeah, he’s said he’s “against” the OSHA workplace mandate, but that seems disingenuous given his own actions in the past.

He doesn’t oppose government intrusion into private medical decisions or private choices about what to wear. I think he probably could argue that the federal government lacks the authority but as governor, he has the authority. The other reason he gave in April for ending the masking mandate was that the “vaccines” were available. At the time, around 25% of New Hampshirites were “fully vaccinated.”

I don’t know what that “fully” figure would be today, since the definition of “fully vaccinated” keeps on changing. Is it two shots? Three shots? The CDC says four shots for “immunocompromised” individuals.

Meanwhile, I keep on getting these fundraising emails supposedly from Jason Osborne, who’s the Republican majority leader in the house of Representatives. This morning, “Jason,” or probably some intern, wrote:

“I’m sure you saw the news about Governor Sununu opting to seek the corner office for a fourth term. Like you, I’m ecstatic that we will have a Live Free or Die champion at the helm once again.”

No, “Jason,” I am not ecstatic. Sununu is pro-abortion, pro-lockdown, pro-Critical Race Theory, pro-Black Lives Matter riots, pro-Biden “infrastructure” deficit spending, pro-giving away state sovereignty for money, anti-liberty, had people arrested for no reason at a public meeting, he shut down churches while keeping the liquor stores open, instructed law enforcement to enter private property “without the consent of the property owner” to enforce his tyrannical “emergency” orders, fined businesses that didn’t follow his illegal orders, and argued in court that he had the right to suspend civil liberties.

Sununu is not a “Live Free or Die” champion. He’s a “Live Under My Thumb or Die” champion.

Now, some people may be saying, “Hey, stop bashing Republicans.” I’m a Republican because of the things I believe. I don’t believe the things I believe because I’m a Republican. If a Republican doesn’t represent my views, then there’s no reason for me to support him.

Sununu is a Republican in Name Only. A RINO. I am not criticizing anyone to my Right. I am criticizing the Left.

Another Ben & Jerry’s Fail – State’s are Divesting from Its Parent Company After it Halted Sales in Israel

Granite Grok - Tue, 2021-11-16 22:00 +0000

Earlier this year, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Unilever) decided that “it is inconsistent with our values for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT).” They stopped selling. States with anti-BDS laws are taking notice.

Unilever’s global gross sales in 2020 were just under 58 billion. The Ben-n-Jerry brand hauled in 863 million in 2020. Not small change, but it is only 1.48% of the Unilever whole.

Is Unilever concerned?

States and their retirement funds invest hundreds of millions in companies like Unilever, and if those states have anti-BDS laws on the books, they can choose to disinvest in companies engaged in BDS.

Thirty-five states in the US have such laws, and at least eight of those (so far) have said they have or will be dumping Unilever stock in response to the Ben & Jerry’s boycott.

Excerpts from Geller Report.com

 

  • New York State, which has just announced, on Oct. 29, that it will disinvest its pension fund of all of its Unilever stock, worth $114 million.
  • Florida on Tuesday [Oct. 26] restricted the state and local governments from buying new investments in Unilever.
  • New Jersey has now committed to disinvestment of all of the $182 million in Unilever stock it currently possesses
  • Arizona in mid-September became the first state to divest all of its Unilever securities– $143 million worth.
  • Texas has notified Unilever about its inclusion on a list of companies violating the state’s ban on boycotts of Israel. ($100 million)
  • Illinois has begun to divest about $180 million in Unilever stock from its state pension fund.
  • Maryland and Rhode Island are now actively considering whether to divest, and both are expected to do so within in the next few months.

 

Several other states are considering similar moves. To the best of my knowledge, New Hampshire does not have any such laws on the books, but our Democrat Congress-critters voted against one in DC.

Is it worth it to Unilever to swat that fly, or are they content to let Ben &Jerry’s be Ben & Jerry’s and take whatever financial hit – if any – this produces?

At this point, the decision has been to let it ride. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if all 35 states start moving to divest from Unilever and if that might get their attention.

State School Board Approves Charter for Lionheart Classical Academy

Granite Grok - Tue, 2021-11-16 20:30 +0000

New Hampshire’s State Board of Education today voted to approve a State Charter for Lionheart Classical Academy Chartered Public School. The academy, scheduled to open in September 2022 in Peterborough, will be a new chartered public school initially offering a tuition-free classical education for grades kindergarten through 5.

Barry Tanner, Chairman of the new school’s founding Board of Trustees:

 

“We are both delighted and gratified that the State Board of Education has endorsed Lionheart Classical Academy’s application to become the first chartered public school in New England offering a classical education.  Approval of our academy’s State Charter marks the successful culmination of many months of diligent work by our Board members and school leadership.”

 

Lionheart Classical Academy will focus on delivering to its students a classical curriculum developed by Hillsdale College that is founded in the liberal arts and sciences, focusing on core elements including science, mathematics, literature, and history. The school has made plans to expand its operations over the next several years to serve kindergarten through grade 12. One of the school’s principal goals is to help its students become well-rounded individuals who are fully prepared for further academic or career pursuits.

Kerry Bedard, Executive Director of the new school:

 

“Lionheart Classical Academy will provide families in the Monadnock Region and beyond with a classical chartered public school to augment other educational options available to their children. Because our school is a chartered public school, families will be able to choose to send their children without any additional financial burden,” she added. “We believe that every family in New Hampshire benefits from this expansion of educational choice.”

 

Next up on the new school’s docket will be acceptance of both student registrations (opening immediately and continuing through March 2022) and employment applications for school faculty and staff. At the same time, the academy’s facilities at 10 Sharon Road in Peterborough will be fitted up in preparation for the school’s opening in September 2022.

“Lionheart Classical Academy will reach out to area families through a variety of media and community organizations to ensure that every family in the region is made aware of our school and what it offers students,” remarked Tanner. “We want interested families to have an opportunity to decide for themselves whether what our school offers is right for their children.”

For more information about Lionheart Classical Academy or to schedule a meeting with staff, interested parties should visit the new school’s website at LionheartClassical.org.
