Danchenko Arrested in the Durham Investigation

Thu, 2021-11-04 20:06 +0000

Jonathan Turley: Igor Danchenko Arrested as Part of Durham Investigation

Danchenko is not someone who immediately comes across as an apex defendant — the highest target in an investigation.  He was a key source used by others to advance false or unsubstantiated claims against Trump. He is the type of defendant that prosecutors pressure to flip against those who retained him or used him in this effort. In other words, he strikes me as someone who can be used as a building block to apex defendants.

Potential apex targets above him in the investigation range from Steele himself to Clinton general counsel Marc Elias to Clinton campaign officials.

The indictment circles around an unnamed figure called PR-Executive-1 who was a close Clinton adviser who held high positions in the Democratic party and prior Clinton campaigns. Most embarrassing are references to the Clinton adviser meeting with possible Russian intelligence figures and other Russian sources, including this line:

PR Executive-1 gifted to Russian Sub-Source-1 an autobiography of Hillary Clinton, which he signed and inscribed with the handwritten message, “To my good friend [first name of Russian Sub-Source-1], A Great Democrat.”

That is one book I think Hillary Clinton would like back.

Has Glenn Greenwald Spiked a Washington Post Story?

Thu, 2021-11-04 19:17 +0000

Glenn Greenwald has learned that Washington Post reporters are digging into the finances of an animal rights organization.  White Coat Waste Project is a taxpayer watchdog group that seeks to put an end to the U.S. Government's medical experiments on animals.  The group has had great success because it has attracted support from both left and right on the political spectrum.  Posted on its website is the rallying cry:  "Save animals and taxes by cutting the root problem: wasteful government spending."  Save animals, cut taxes.  What's not to like?

Which begs the question, what does the Washington Post have against the White Coat Waste Project?

The government official who oversees the agencies conducting most of these gruesome experiments has become a liberal icon and one of the most sacred and protected figures in modern American political history: Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and President Biden's Chief Medical Advisor. Many of the most horrific experiments, including the ones on dogs and puppies now in the news as a result of White Coat's activism, are conducted by agencies under Fauci's command and are funded by budgets he controls.

In other words, White Coat's activism, which had long generated bipartisan support and favorable media coverage, now reflects poorly on Dr. Fauci. And as a result, The Washington Post has decided to amass a team of reporters to attack the group — the same one the paper repeatedly praised prior to the COVID pandemic — in order to falsely smear it as a right-wing extremist group motivated not by a genuine concern for the welfare of animals or wasteful government spending, but rather due to a partisan desire, based in MAGA ideology, to attack Fauci.

Beth Reinhard of the Washington Post has been digging since at least last week, emailing requests to White Coat for financial information.  Reinhard seems to be angling to establish a nefarious connection to big money MAGA supporters, but so far, that well seems dry. White Coat's average donation in 2020 was $30.47.

It's clear from Greenwald's story that the White Coat Waste Project is not intimidated by the Washington Post.  Its campaign, with its unflattering revelations about liberal icon Anthony Fauci, will continue.  It's also clear that Glenn Greenwald has just stomped all over the Post's bombshell scoop.  Will there be a bombshell scoop?  And if there is, what will it be about?  The nefarious financing angle doesn't look promising.   

Do read Greenwald's full story here. The White Coat Waste Project website is here.

The Wisconsin Elder-Fraud Voting Story Has National Implications

Thu, 2021-11-04 11:35 +0000

On Wednesday, the Racine County Sheriff's Office referred election fraud charges against five members of the Wisconsin Elections Commission to the Racine County District Attorney's Office. It's the tip of the iceberg.  The 2020 elections set a "new normal of election fraud" in which laws were broken and ignored with impunity on a nationwide scale.  Margot Cleveland explains.

Last week, the Racine County, Wisconsin sheriff’s office held a 75-minute press conference to announce the results of their investigation into absentee voting at residential care facilities. As reported here, the press conference showed that the Wisconsin Election Commission illegally directed municipalities not to “use the Special Voting Deputy process to service residents in care facilities,” but instead to “transmit absentee ballots to those voters by mail.”

That illegal directive resulted in apparent violations of election law by employees of the Ridgewood Care Center, a Racine nursing home. The evidence also suggests, at a minimum, the improper influence of elderly voters.

The significance of this story, however, spans much beyond the 72 counties comprising this midwestern state that broke by 20,682 votes to Joe Biden. Rather, an honest review of the evidence presented by Sheriff Christopher Schmaling and lead investigator Sgt. Michael Luell exposes three significances of national importance.

Ivermectin Meta Analysis

Thu, 2021-11-04 11:01 +0000

Ivermectin for COVID-19: real-time meta analysis of 65 studies

Introduction

We analyze all significant studies concerning the use of ivermectin for COVID-19. Search methods, inclusion criteria, effect extraction criteria (more serious outcomes have priority), all individual study data, PRISMA answers, and statistical methods are detailed in Appendix 1. We present random effects meta-analysis results for all studies, studies within each treatment stage, specific outcomes, peer-reviewed studies, Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs), and after exclusions.   We also perform a simple analysis of the distribution of study effects. If treatment was not effective, the observed effects would be randomly distributed (or more likely to be negative if treatment is harmful). We can compute the probability that the observed percentage of positive results (or higher) could occur due to chance with an ineffective treatment (the probability of >= k heads in n coin tosses, or the one-sided sign test / binomial test). Analysis of publication bias is important and adjustments may be needed if there is a bias toward publishing positive results.

Nashua Ballot Question Two Soundly Defeated

Wed, 2021-11-03 14:19 +0000

Question Two would have expanded the Nashua Police Commission and allowed local officials to choose its members.

NASHUA, NH — A proposal to remove the selection process for Nashua's police commission membership from the governor's hands to the mayor's hand has been soundly defeated by almost a two-to-one margin, according to unofficial election results.

Question 2, which also would have expanded the board to five members from three and had aldermen approve of the new choices, too, received 4,931 Yes votes with No votes coming in at 8,950.

Sandy Cleary, the business leader who headed up the Vote No on Question 2 effort, said the voters spoke "clearly and unequivocally" — and sent a clear message to Mayor Jim Donchess.

"Nashua Aldermen rejected the same proposal, yet the mayor literally went door to door to sell this idea and led a rushed effort to force this question to the November ballot before the issue could be properly vetted," she said.

Progressive Democrats — the Never Enough Caucus

Wed, 2021-11-03 14:01 +0000

In what fantasy world can the infrastructure proposals floating around Washington be described as "sharply reduced spending?"

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) rejected Florida Democratic Rep. Stephanie Murphy's characterization of the Congressional Progressive Caucus as the "Never Enough Caucus," citing progressives' willingness to accept sharply reduced spending in the Democrats' budget reconciliation bill.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has postponed two votes on the Senate-passed $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill due to progressives demanding that the Democrats' massive budget reconciliation bill (also known as the Build Back Better Act) must be finalized first.

Virginia

Wed, 2021-11-03 12:18 +0000

Glenn Youngkin won the governor's race in Virginia, defeating incumbent Terry McAuliffe.

Businessman Glenn Youngkin was declared the winner early Wednesday morning in Virginia's closely watched gubernatorial race, defeating former Gov. Terry McAuliffe in an election widely viewed as a bellwether on Democrats' agenda and rule in Washington.

Addressing jubilant supporters at his headquarters in Chantilly, Va. well after 1 a.m., a buoyant Youngkin celebrated the come-from-behind, upset victory of "a campaign that came from nowhere ... and turned into a movement."

In an optimistic, inclusive speech emphasizing freedom from government overreach and unity across racial, ethnic and social barriers, Youngkin vowed, "Together we will change the trajectory of this commonwealth."

In a stunning sweep, the GOP took the top three executive branch spots — governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general.

Winsome Sears, a Jamaican immigrant and former Marine, was elected the first female African-American lieutenant governor, and Republican Jason Miyares is the projected winner of the Virginia attorney general race, becoming the state's first Latino to hold that office.

Meanwhile, over at CNN, talking heads credited "dog whistle racism" for Youngkin's victory.  This, in the face of the diversity that the GOP takeover has just introduced in the Virginia executive branch.  Also, Van Jones dubbed Youngkin "the delta variant of Trumpism."

In more bad news for Democrats, the Virginia House has flipped from blue to red.  Unofficial results have the Republicans picking up six Democrat-held seats while losing no Republican-held seats, turning a 55 - 45 Democrat majority into a 51 - 49 Republican majority.  A live blog at Blue Virginia shut down in disgust early in the evening last night.  As usual, when Democrats lose elections, it's the end of democracy.

UPDATE 8:35 pm – Hard to argue with Ryan Matsumoto on this: “There’s no way to spin this for Democrats – this is a very very bad result for them. Virginia has swung 10-15 points to the right since last November. That type of swing would be devastating for them in the House and Senate in 2022.” And if that happens, kiss our democracy goodbye.

How odd that Democrats seem to think democracy is dead when they lose.  Maybe that explains why it's so crucial for them to steal elections.

Pfizer Fixing Up the COVID-19 Vaccine for 5-Year Olds

Wed, 2021-11-03 10:11 +0000

Pfizer adds an ingredient to its vaccine for children.

Buried on Page 14 in the Pfizer paperwork submitted to the FDA for the Covid vaccine for children is this disturbing nugget.

Vaccine formulation
Authorization is being requested for a modified formulation of the Pfizer‑BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. Each dose of this formulation contains 10 μg of a nucleoside-modified messenger RNA (mRNA) encoding the viral spike (S) glycoprotein of SARS-CoV-2 that is formulated in lipid particles and supplied as a frozen suspension in multiple dose vials.

To provide a vaccine with an improved stability profile, the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for use in children 5-11 years of age uses tromethamine (Tris) buffer instead of the phosphatebuffered saline (PBS) as used in the previous formulation and excludes sodium chloride and potassium chloride. The packaged vials for the new formulation are stored frozen at -90°C to – 60°C. The frozen vials may be thawed and stored at refrigerator at 2°C to 8°C for up to 10
weeks.

Tromethamine (Tris) is a blood acid reducer which is used to stabilize people with heart attacks. Here are known side effects: Respiratory depression, local irritation, tissue inflammation, injection site infection, febrile response, chemical phlebitis, venospasm (vein spasms), hypervolemia, IV thrombosis, extravasation (with possible necrosis and sloughing of tissues), transient decreases in blood glucose concentrations, hypoglycemia, and hepatocellular necrosis with infusion via low-lying umbilical venous catheters.

From "Immunity" to "Protection"

Wed, 2021-11-03 09:55 +0000

CDC emails obtained by Techno Fog through the Freedom of Information Act show that the CDC was forced to admit that COVID-19 vaccines weren’t doing what vaccines are supposed to do.  So, it changed its definition of "vaccine."  Problem solved.  "Right-wing covid-19 deniers" were to blame.

The CDC caused an uproar in early September 2021, after it changed its definitions of “vaccination” and “vaccine.” For years, the CDC had set definitions for vaccination/vaccine that discussed immunity. This all changed on September 1, 2021.

The prior CDC Definitions of Vaccine and Vaccination (August 26, 2021):

Vaccine: A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but can also be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.

The CDC Definitions of Vaccine and Vaccination since September 1, 2021:

Vaccine: A preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but some can be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.

[...]

There you have it. Affirmative action for the multinational corporations. Why have them improve their vaccines when you can just change the definition of vaccine to fit their ineffective vaccines?

Axios: FEC Now Allows Foreign Money Into U.S. Ballot Initiatives

Tue, 2021-11-02 17:54 +0000

According to Axios, a Federal Election Commission ruling allows foreign donors to finance U.S. referendum campaigns.

The Federal Election Commission has ruled foreign donors can finance U.S. referendum campaigns, opening the door to foreign spending on fights over high-profile policy issues, Axios has learned.

Why it matters: Foreign nationals are barred from donating to U.S. political candidates or committees. But the FEC's decision — allowing them to support ballot committees — provides another avenue for foreigners to directly influence U.S. voters and domestic policy.

  • A major question stemming from the decision is whether foreign nationals are now permitted to spend money to influence the actual mechanisms of the U.S. democratic process.
  • That would include congressional redistricting, which is frequently subject to ballot referenda.
  • The FEC's ruling did not address that question, meaning it will likely be litigated in future fights at the commission.

The decision only concerns federal law; states remain free to outlaw foreign funding for state-registered ballot committees.

NNTV — Number Needed To Vaccinate

Tue, 2021-11-02 17:35 +0000

Toby Rogers asks, "What is the Number Needed to Vaccinate (NNTV) to prevent a single COVID-19 fatality in kids 5 to 11 based on the Pfizer EUA application?"

First a little background. The Number Needed to Treat (NNT) in order to prevent a single case, hospitalization, ICU admission, or death, is a standard way to measure the effectiveness of any drug. It’s an important tool because it enables policymakers to evaluate tradeoffs between a new drug, a different existing drug, or doing nothing. In vaccine research the equivalent term is Number Needed to Vaccinate (NNTV, sometimes also written as NNV) in order to prevent a single case, hospitalization, ICU admission, or death (those are 4 different NNTVs that one could calculate).

Since the FDA never came up with an NNTV in its risk/benefit analysis, Mr. Rogers decided to calculate one on his own using available CDC data.  How many children would need to be vaccinated to prevent just one hospitalization, ICU admission, or death?

Everyone knows that Pfizer was not even trying to conduct a responsible clinical trial of their mRNA shot in kids ages 5 to 11. Pfizer could have submitted to the FDA a paper napkin with the words “Iz Gud!” written in crayon and the VRBPAC would have approved the shot. They are all in the cartel together and they are all looking forward to their massive payoff/payday.

But let’s not be like Pharma. Instead, let’s attempt to come up with a best guess estimate based on real world data. Over time, others will develop a much more sophisticated estimate (for example, Walach, Klement, & Aukema, 2021 estimated an NNTV for 3 different populations based on “days post dose”). But for our purposes here I think there is a much easier way to come up with a ballpark NNTV estimate for children ages 5 to 11.

Mr. Rogers describes his benefits model and his risk model, which you can examine by following this link.  He arrived at the following:

So, to put it simply, the Biden administration plan would kill 5,248 children via Pfizer mRNA shots in order to save 45 children from dying of coronavirus.

For every one child saved by the shot, another 117 would be killed by the shot.

The Pfizer mRNA shot fails any honest risk-benefit analysis in children ages 5 to 11.

Even under the best circumstances, estimating NNTV and modeling risk vs. benefits is fraught. In the current situation, with a new and novel bioengineered virus, where Pfizer’s data are intentionally underpowered to hide harms, and the FDA, CDC, & Biden Administration are doing everything in their power to push dangerous drugs on kids, making good policy decisions is even more difficult.

If the FDA or CDC want to calculate a different NNTV (and explain how they arrived at that number) I’m all ears. But we all know that the FDA refused to calculate an NNTV not because they forgot, but because they knew the number was so high that it would destroy the case for mRNA vaccines in children this age. Your move CDC — your own Guidance document states that you must provide this number.

How Fauci Fooled America

When the pandemic hit, America needed someone to turn to for advice. The media and public naturally looked to Dr. Anthony Fauci—the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, an esteemed laboratory immunologist and one of President Donald Trump's chosen COVID advisers. Unfortunately, Dr. Fauci got major epidemiology and public health questions wrong. Reality and scientific studies have now caught up with him.

Here are the key issues:

Natural immunity. By pushing vaccine mandates, Dr. Fauci ignores naturally acquired immunity among the COVID-recovered, of which there are more than 45 million in the United States. Mounting evidence indicates that natural immunity is stronger and longer lasting than vaccine-induced immunity. In a study from Israel, the vaccinated were 27 times more likely to get symptomatic COVID than the unvaccinated who had recovered from a prior infection.

Pfizer vaccine for children readied for shipment, ahead of approval

The Biden administration has prepared shipments of low-dose COVID-19 vaccines for children ages 5-11 ahead of the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions final approval, according to reports.

“We are not waiting on the operations and logistics,” said White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeff Zients to the Associated Press. 

As the U.S. heads into winter, the Biden administration hopes to fend off a potential devastating wave of COVID cases by vaccinating school-aged children. 

Devastating wave of COVID cases.  Sure.
