Pants on Fire: The Many Lies of COVID Tyrant Fauci Revealed in Deposition Leaks | RedState

While the people of China wage an open rebellion against the draconian COVID-zero policies being reinstated in many provinces, here in the U.S. we’re getting a clearer idea of how much our own lockdown-loving COVID tyrant, Anthony Fauci, lied to us. Yes, his retirement from the federal government is looming — a gig that earned him a ton of money and way too much power — but we’re not done with him yet. He needs to answer a few questions before he rides off into the sunset.

As streiff reported last week, Fauci was deposed by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry in an attempt to get some answers about Fauci’s role in spreading pandemic-related misinformation.

The case is called Missouri vs. Biden, and it alleges that the Biden White House and its lickspittles closely coordinated with social media companies to suppress discussion of COVID and other administration failures.

Turns out, Anthony Fauci is a big ole liar; he wasn’t called “Fauxi” for nothing. The official transcript of the deposition has yet to be made public, but AGs Schmitt and Landry have shared some details of Fauci’s lying liar who lied ways on Twitter.

First up, masking. Fauci knew they’d do nothing to protect or prevent, but he lied about it anyway.

 

So, all those times children were refused entrance to their schools because they weren’t wearing a mask?  All the nonsense of having to wear a mask on a plane and pull it down to take a sip of water? Parents who weren’t allowed access to school board meetings because they refused to wear a mask? It was all for nothing. Pure theatrics, due to Fauci’s unwillingness to be truthful with Americans. That “first, do no harm” business flew right out the window when he tasted the power his words wielded.

And it seems Fauci still has a preoccupation with masking. As Schmitt pointed out in this tweet:

In the Fauci depo this week the court reporter sneezed. Fauci wanted her to wear a mask. This is the mentality in Nov 2022 of the guy who locked down our country & ruined countless lives & livelihoods. The Experts followed suit. Dissent was censored In America. Never Again.”

Another Fauci lie that came to light during the deposition was his role in downplaying the Great Barrington Declaration, in which a compendium of scientists argued against lockdowns in favor of common sense measures that would protect the most vulnerable. Per the New York Post:

After Fauci championed lockdowns to vanquish COVID, top scientists from Oxford, Stanford and Harvard in October 2020 issued the Great Barrington Declaration, which argued that “focused protection” for high-risk groups (such as the elderly) was vastly preferable to shutting down society.

When asked about his role in assailing that Declaration, Fauci declared, “I have a very busy day job running a $6 billion institute. I don’t have time to worry about things like the Great Barrington Declaration.” But less than two weeks after the Declaration’s release, Fauci emailed Deborah Birx, the White House COVID chief, “I have come out very strongly publicly against the Great Barrington Declaration.” Fauci did multiple media interviews castigating any suggestion that lockdowns were unnecessary to save America.

For most of us, that’s the crux of the matter. The dictatorial, one-size-fits-all approach championed by Anthony Fauci took away our right to deal with the pandemic in the way that best suited our situation and gave that right to the bumbling incompetents in government. That approach wears thin real quick — look no further than China to see how that goes.

Schmitt outlined some additional takeaways from the deposition:

▪️Fauci knew the Lab Leak theory had merit but it’d come back to him & sought to immediately discredit it
▪️He defended lockdowns
▪️The rest of us “don’t have the ability” to determine what’s best for ourselves

And AG Landry added this observation:

 

While most of us would like nothing more than to see the backside of Anthony Fauci, we deserve accountability from the bad actors who, like him, toyed with our lives for more than two years. We know the media won’t hold their feet to the fire — just today, Fauci told an admiring Chuck Todd “we certainly are still in” a pandemic; as expected, no pushback from Todd.

Unfortunately for Fauci and his fellow COVD tyrants, AG Eric Schmitt was recently elected to the U.S. Senate, where he’ll join Rand Paul, who certainly pulls no punches in dealing with the Fauci’s of the world. Accountability may yet be forthcoming.

Seducing The Already Lukewarm Church: Joel Osteen and Deceptive Prosperity Preaching | Harbingers Daily

It’s like a caffeine or sugar high with the nutritional value of cotton candy, but make no mistake: it can be quite lucrative for those preaching it. A friend of mine visited his church and said there were no crosses and there was no mention of Jesus. He may be sincere, he may be naive; but he will be held accountable by God for what he preaches.

Lakewood Church in Houston church rakes in about $70 million a year. For his latest book, Joel Osteen received a $13 million-dollar advance. One book. He and his wife have a fortune estimated at $60 million. His 17,000 square-foot mansion is listed at $10.7 million and has six bathrooms, five fireplaces, three elevators, a swimming pool, guest house, and parking for 20 cars – including his $230,000 Ferrari.

Thinking positive sure is better than negative, and money itself isn’t bad. There are plenty of generous people who do great things for God with their finances; but the Bible warns about loving money.

Pursuing happiness isn’t wrong, but happiness can depend on your circumstances in life. Holiness, on the other hand, is a result of obedience; seeking the kingdom of God first and walking with Jesus daily.

People who practice Joel Osteen’s formula for success and then get cancer or fail to get the expected results end up disillusioned or worse; they blame God! It might feel good short term, but many people get angry at God if things don’t work out the way they want them to and they fall away from Him.

Rather than catering to self, the Bible teaches us to surrender our lives to Christ. The Gospel of Luke 9:23-24 quotes Jesus as saying:

Luke 9:23-24 KJV – “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.”

The true Christian faith is honest right up front because the road to eternal life is narrow and hard. The Bible promises persecution, trials, and that people will hate you. Jesus said we will have trouble in this world.

President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Dr. Albert Mohler offered some insightful comments on a recent an article in The Financial Times in which the writer destroys Joel Osteen’s brand of Christianity and contrasts prosperity theology with teachings in Scripture. The author is not even a believer.

Editor of The Financial Times, progressive writer Edward Luce, visited Lakewood Church in Houston and interviewed Osteen. Luce writes about what he sees as a contradiction between Joel Osteen’s preaching and the historic, orthodox Christian faith. He calls Lakewood, “the most significant temple to the prosperity gospel in America.”

When Luce checked out a men’s group there, he came away with “buzz words” such as: optimism, hope, destiny, harvest, bounty, and of course, prosperity.

The article points to the glaring absence of crucial theological terms:

“Words that are rarely heard include guilt, shame, sin, penance and hell. Lakewood is not the kind of church that troubles your conscience.” 

It might work for some, but why don’t more people see that prosperity theology is not centered on God and his glory, but the glory of man, on this life, and is a psychological message aimed at making people feel better about themselves?

It is true God loves us. He cared enough to send Jesus to a brutal, torturous death on a cross. With prosperity teachings however, “meaning and identity have shifted away from the self-revealing, self-existing God and towards the self-important, self-worshiping individual whom God loves.”

A key statement by Osteen reveals much about his focus:

“If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. If he had a computer, your face would be the screen saver.”

Dr. Mohler writes that the prosperity gospel shifts the emphasis of God’s love away from the praise and glory of the Creator to the praise and glory of the creature. Erasing the wrath of a holy God, Osteen reverses the entire theological order of biblical Christianity.

Colossians 1:16 reminds us we’re here for God; He doesn’t exist for our pleasure:

Colossians 1:16 KJV – “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.”

Digging a little deeper on his visit to Houston, Edward Luce asked Joel Osteen how he managed to keep sin and redemption out of his preaching, and how a message can parade as Christian when it avoids basic, necessary doctrines. Osteen said he didn’t want “to turn people off” or lay more guilt on them, and added:

“It’s not my aim to dwell on technicalities. I want to help people sleep at night.”

Can you imagine Jesus or any of the disciples saying this? Osteen’s teaching is pop psychology that resembles the mantras of Oprah rather than the gospel of Jesus Christ.

When an unbeliever writing for a secular publication can see this but Christians don’t get it, our biblical illiteracy is showing.

Osteen has also been quoted as saying,

“If you do your part, God will do his. He will promote you. He will give you the increase.”

For those who don’t know what the Bible teaches, how could they hear this and not think Christianity is a religion that’s all about us and what we can get?

God already did His part by raising Jesus from the dead and sending the Holy Spirit to help believers. Nowhere does Scripture suggest if we just do our part, God will respond.

Osteen’s ‘gospel’ of your best life now, happiness, health and wealth and blessings lacks depth and substance. What does it offer those with terminal diseases, the homeless, U.S. Veterans with missing limbs and PTSD, parents with kids in children’s hospitals, confused teenagers, broken families, the depressed or hopeless, including those who are suicidal?

Dr. Mohler says Osteen proclaims not the gospel – but a false hope. He concludes:

And the central problem of the prosperity gospel is not that it offers too much, but that it offers too little. The gospel of Jesus Christ brings salvation, the forgiveness of sin, and life everlasting; …Osteen tragically exchanges the hope of a gospel centered on Christ and his accomplished work – for a wishy-washy, self-centered, self-exalting message of psychotherapy. He turns the eyes of his audience away from the glory of the eternal God to a god who is a cosmic butler;

Joel Osteen’s message appeals to a materialistic, spoiled culture, doesn’t it? It seduces the already lukewarm church in the United States of Laodicea.

In what does your security rest? A house, savings, investments, retirement plan? These will all pass away, but the word of the Lord endures forever. One problem with riches is that they encourage a spirit of false independence, very much like the church of Laodicea, which Jesus rebuked. He said they were lukewarm. Revelation 3:17 states:

Revelation 3:17 KJV – “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:”

How much does this sound like American Christianity and ‘Your Best Life Now’ theology? The poison of the prosperity gospel is just one of many false teachings leading us to expect or even demand God bless us – and in the way we desire.

Who wouldn’t want their faith to be a magic wand of sorts to create what we imagine and visualize? That’s the kind of thing we want to hear, but it’s not based on truth and it’s not what we need to hear.

2 Timothy 4:3-5 warns professing believers in the church:

2 Timothy 4:3-5 KJV – “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”

I recently preached a message from Matthew chapter 19 about the rich young ruler who came to Jesus seeking eternal life only to walk away in grief and sorrow because he could not let go of his possessions. Money was his idol. And Jesus said it is extremely difficult for the rich to be saved. Not impossible; but difficult.

Are riches an obstacle to the kingdom of heaven? For some, yes. In America today, who among us would not be considered rich compared to the world? Why is wealth such a problem when it comes to eternal things? Because it tends to make us satisfied with this life, instead of longing for the age to come.

Randy Alcorn stated:

“He who lays up treasures on earth spends his life backing away from his treasures. To him, death is loss. He who lays up treasures in heaven looks forward to eternity; he’s moving daily toward his treasures. To him, death is gain.”

Context, theology, and expository teaching aren’t the only things prosperity preachers tend to avoid. They typically stay away from so-called social and political issues like abortion and homosexuality, and they rarely touch on cults and world religions. I wrote about this in a chapter called “Counterfeit Christianity” for my 2012 book, ERADICATE.

Back when Mitt Romney was running for president, Joel Osteen was interviewed several times and asked why he doesn’t get involved in politics or talk much about the most pressing, controversial, cultural issues. Ready for his answer? Osteen said he didn’t feel comfortable, and that “I don’t feel like that’s my main gifting.” So, only people with a special gift can address hot topics? Osteen also stated:

 “When you focus on being a blessing, God makes sure that you are always blessed in abundance.” 

In a Washington Times interview, he responded by saying he didn’t like to take sides and prefers to “stay in my own lane.” Then came questions about Romney being a LDS (Mormon), and Osteen said he believes Mormons are Christians, but added that he didn’t know if it’s the “purest form of Christianity, like I grew up with.”

In an earlier interview, Chris Wallace of (then) Fox News asked Pastor Joel, “Is a Mormon a true Christian?”

OSTEEN: “Well, in my mind they are. Mitt Romney has said that he believes in Christ as his Savior, and that’s what I believe, so, you know, I’m not the one to judge the little details of it. So I believe they are. And so, you know, Mitt Romney seems like a man of character and integrity to me….”

WALLACE: “So, for instance, when people start talking about Joseph Smith, the founder of the church, and the golden tablets in upstate New York, and God assumes the shape of a man, do you not get hung up in those theological issues?”

OSTEEN: “I probably don’t get hung up in them because I haven’t really studied them or thought about them. And you know, I just try to let God be the judge of that. I mean, I don’t know…

So let’s review: Pastor Joel Osteen feels it is not his calling to get deeply into the Bible or to talk about sin. He also prefers not to think too much about other religions, but he believes Mormons are Christians. Okay. Got it.

In his New York Times best-selling book, Your Best Life Now, Osteen stated:

“The first step to living at your full potential is to enlarge your vision; seeing yourself rising to new levels. …See your dreams coming to pass. You must conceive it and believe it is possible if you ever hope to experi­ence it”

“You will produce what you’re continually seeing in your mind…. If you develop an image of victory, success, health, abundance, joy, peace, and happiness, nothing on earth will be able to hold those things from you … God wants to increase you financially, by giving you promotions, fresh ideas and cre­ativity” (p. 4, 5).

Our struggle is not against flesh and blood (Eph. 6:12), and Joel Osteen is not the enemy. He will be judged and for that, I certainly do not envy him. This could be so much more extensive, and we could name dozens of men (and women) preachers, list more quotes and strengthen our case. (Copeland, Dollar, Duplantis, Hinn, Meyer, etc.)

With great wealth comes great responsibility. Jesus viewed wealth as a gift from God. Luke writes:

Luke 16:13 KJV – “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

Only God knows the hearts of those who preach watered-down doctrines such as word-faith and the prosperity gospel, but those who are teachers will be held to a much higher standard (James 3:1) by the Lord who exalts His precious Word. To embrace and follow Christ, we must hold the things of this life loosely and set our hearts on things above (Col. 3:1-3).

1 John 2:15-17 KJV – “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”

The gospel that Joel Osteen and many others preach barely resembles the hard teachings of Jesus Christ and the true gospel. Pray for discernment for those who have fallen for this deception, and pray for God’s mercy for those who are peddling it.

And let’s examine our own hearts because in the end, these charlatans have to answer to the God they claim to represent; and so will we.

He Will Carry Us Home — VCY America

And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.Isaiah 46:4

The year is very old, and here is a promise for our aged friends; yes, and for us all, as age creeps over us. Let us live long enough, and we shall all have hoar hairs; therefore we may as well enjoy this promise by the foresight of faith.

When we grow old our God will still be the I AM, abiding evermore the same. Hoar hairs tell of our decay, but He decayeth not. When we cannot carry a burden and can hardly carry ourselves, the Lord will carry us. Even as in our young days He carried us like lambs in His bosom, so will He in our years of infirmity.

He made us, and He will care for us. When we become a burden to our friends and a burden to ourselves, the Lord will not shake us off, but the rather He will take us up and carry and deliver us more fully than ever. In many cases the Lord give His servants a long and calm evening. They worked hard all day and wore themselves out in their Master’s service, and so He said to them, “Now rest in anticipation of that eternal Sabbath which I have prepared for you.” Let us not dread old age. Let us grow old graciously since the Lord Himself is with us in fullness of grace.

Sitting on the Fence — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

Chose you this day, whom you will serve” Joshua 24:15


“I have decided that sitting on the fence is not a God thing,” I told my family.

In real life everyday situations, much evil has continued because people are afraid to take a stand. Oh, they may take a stand in private conversations but few will voice their views in public. They are afraid they may be rejected.

I have been there. Sometimes I am a coward and sometimes I am brave. Sometimes I notice that others are cowards. Sometimes they are brave.

There have been times when I should have publicly supported someone who was right, but I didn’t. We need to check out rumors or gossip. There have been times when I wished someone would be brave enough to voice their support for me, but they didn’t. Standing with someone who is assumed guilty could mean rejection, the loss of a job, a loss of credibility or more (in the sight of men, not God). I’m sure you have been there too.

Lately I have realized the importance of standing up for what is right and publicly supporting others who are right. Sitting on the fence or being neutral is not a Godly characteristic.

Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Civil Rights Leader), said so aptly, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

Jesus definitely spoke up. He was not a coward!

Father, You have shown me how often I have been a coward. Please forgive me. Make us bold and courageous followers of You. Help us take a public stand against what is wrong. Help us to be willing to pay the price. Jesus did. Amen.

Jesus Requires Total Abandonment — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.” Colossians 3:4 (NIV)


We’ve taught people it’s OK to let Jesus have a significant place in their lives, a moderate place in their lives, or a compartmentalized place in their lives. We know discipleship involves growth, so people need to grow into “Jesus defines my life.”

But the growth isn’t happening among so many followers of Christ. Why, instead of the abundant life, do so many of us end up living lives of quiet desperation?

We go to church, we read the Bible, we pray, we try to be good people and serve other people. Yet, for many of us, Jesus isn’t central to our increasingly complex lives, where we’re over-stretched and now seem to be facing a tsunami of uncertainty in many areas that for so long have seemed relatively secure, such as our finances, our jobs, our homes — even our fundamental safety.

God never intended for Jesus to be an important part of our lives; he is our life. Colossians 3:4 says, “When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory” (NIV). If you try to find your life apart from Jesus, you will lose it; but if you lose your life in Jesus, then you will live an extraordinary life energized by the life of Christ within you.

Jesus will not tolerate wishy-washy disciples.

Clearly, what we call radical obedience here on Earth is the obedience expected in the Kingdom of Heaven. In other words, our lukewarm discipleship is actually radical disobedience.

Jesus has his eye on the endgame, and so he intends to break through every program, every ideal, and every form of legalism that keeps us from following him in total abandonment.

Thoughts

  • In what ways have you allowed your life to be over-filled with things that keep you from growing in discipleship?
  • What radical steps do you need to take so that you can follow Christ in obedience?

Biden admin scrambles to track $20B in Ukraine aid as House Republicans warn of audits | FOX news

President Biden’s administration is scrambling to track the nearly $20 billion in military aid it has sent to Ukraine as Republicans warn of impending audits when they take control of the House in January.

Likely future House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has said his party will not be giving Ukraine a “blank check” to fend off Russia’s invasion. A potential audit would determine how much, if any, of the U.S. aid is ending up in the wrong hands. The Biden administration’s previous tracking efforts have inspected only a fraction of the aid provided to the country.

While some staunch Ukraine allies fear Republicans will cut off aid to the country, there remains widespread support for ramping up oversight efforts in Congress.

Firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., has vowed to “hold our government accountable” for Ukraine spending, and some of her colleagues across the aisle are echoing the message.

PROGRESSIVE LAWMAKERS URGE BIDEN TO ‘ENGAGE IN DIRECT TALKS WITH RUSSIA’ TO END INVASION OF UKRAINE

“The taxpayers deserve to know that investment is going where it’s intended to go,” Rep. Jason Crow, D-Colo., told the Washington Post. “In any war, there can be missteps and misallocation of supplies.”

EXPLAINER: DIRTY BOMBS ARE DEVICES USED TO CREATE FEAR AND PANIC, ACTUALLY CAUSE FEW DEATHS

The lawmakers agree that current monitoring efforts appear woefully inadequate, with the Biden administration inspecting just 10% of the 22,000 weapons the U.S. has provided to Ukraine between February and November 1, according to the Post.

U.S. allies in Europe have expressed hope that Republican skepticism of Ukraine aid will not lead to a widespread cutting of funding, however.

“You’d be playing into Putin’s hands,” U.K. Parliament member Tobias Ellwood said in October. “If America pulls back, Putin could snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.”

McCarthy has based his criticism of the aid packages on America’s economic situation as the economy threatens to fall into a recession.

“I think people are gonna be sitting in a recession and they’re not going to write a blank check to Ukraine,” McCarthy said last month. “They just won’t do it. … It’s not a free blank check.”

Nevertheless, America’s funding for Ukraine has been largely bipartisan under Biden, and many Republicans say there is no reason that funding cannot continue in some form.

“No one in Republican leadership has called for an end to aid for Ukraine,” Rep. Mike Turner, R-Ohio, said Monday. “People on the Republican side are saying, ‘Why do we have to pass a $40 billion package to send $8 billion to Ukraine?’”

Biden Allows Chevron to Pump Oil in Communist Venezuela | The Stream

The Treasury Department on Saturday issued Chevron a new license that would allow the massive oil company to pump oil in Venezuela, easing sanctions on the communist country as the price of gas remains elevated.

The license, issued by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), will allow the company to produce oil in Venezuela by taking part in joint ventures with the state-owned oil company Petroleos de Venezuela, according to a Treasury Department press release. The department issued the license after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and the Unitary Platform, a coalition of opposition parties, agreed to carry out a humanitarian program and pursue talks to hold “free and fair elections.”

“What they’re really trying to do is drive more and more of the U.S. oil industry offshore, into the arms of other countries,” Institute for Energy Research Senior Vice President Dan Kish told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “I don’t blame Chevron … it’s already hard for them to pump oil in the U.S.”

The announcement comes as the Biden administration has taken steps to curtail domestic oil production, attempting to impose a moratorium on new drilling leases, which is currently being contested in federal court.

Please Support The Stream: Equipping Christians to Think Clearly About the Political, Economic, and Moral Issues of Our Day.

Kish said that Venezuelan crude oil is “heavier” than the light-sweet shale oil produced in the U.S. and also far less environmentally friendly as it has a high sulfur content; moreover, U.S. refineries are more suited to process heavier crude than oil that is produced in the U.S., making Venezuelan oil valuable to domestic refiners.

“The Venezuelans have the largest proven oil reserves in the world, but it’s very carbon intensive … it’s some of the most carbon-intensive oil,” Kish stated.

The Biden administration’s move to allow Chevron to operate in Venezuela could signal other major oil companies to begin pumping oil in Venezuela once more, according to The Wall Street Journal. The administration proposed easing sanctions on the nation and allowing Chevron to produce oil there after the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries decided to cut oil production by 2 million barrels per day in October.

“The issuance of General License No. 41 means Chevron can now commercialize the oil that is currently being produced from the company’s Joint Venture assets,” the company said in a statement provided to the DCNF. “We are determined to remain a constructive presence in the country and to continue supporting social investment programs aimed at providing humanitarian relief.”

The Treasury Department did not immediately respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.

Inflation drives up US household spending – CNBC | RT Business News

Americans now pay over $400 more each month for the same goods and services, the news outlet reports, citing analysts

Inflation drives up US household spending – CNBC

Soaring inflation has driven up American household spending, CNBC reported this week, citing a Moody’s analysis of October inflation data. According to the report, households are forced to pay $433 more per month for the same goods and services than they did last year.

US consumer prices rose by 7.7% year-on-year last month, which was lower than the June peak of 9.1%, but still near a 40-year high. Since October last year, the food that people buy at work and school has almost doubled in price. Products like eggs and butter rose by more than a third, while milk, bread, and poultry increased by 15%. Transportation costs grew by 28%, while gasoline prices increased 17.5%.

Moody’s notes that wages have failed to keep up with inflation, and workers are rapidly losing purchasing power. Hourly wages dropped by an average of 2.8%, the report states.

Despite weaker-than-expected inflation in October, households are still feeling the squeeze from rising consumer prices,” Bernard Yaros, an economist at Moody’s, was cited as saying.

The impact of inflation varies from group to group, Yaros added, noting that “younger and rural Americans, as well as those without a bachelor’s degree,” have been hurt the most.

Some financial advisers suggest that changing spending habits may help households lower expenses – for example, traveling closer to home, getting a haircut less often, going shopping for groceries with a list and seeking out discounts, etc.

There’s no one silver bullet… It’s all those little decisions that add up at the end of the month,” Joseph Bert, the CEO of Certified Financial Group, told CNBC.

Woke elementary schools behind ‘exponential increase’ in kids’ gender confusion: Dr. Elana Fishbein | FOX news

“No Left Turn in Education” President Dr. Elana Fishbein slammed a “woke” American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) physician for supporting gender-affirming healthcare for children while simultaneously condemning tattoos for minors, calling the move “outrageous and insane.”

“It is a permanent mark or a symbol you are putting on your body, and I don’t think kids under 18 have that kind of agency to make a decision. We need to look at these laws again,” Dr. Cora Breuner said, according to a recent New York Times report on a mother who was arrested after school officials discovered her 10-year-old son had gotten a tattoo.

Breuner, who co-authored an AAP study supporting gender-affirming healthcare to minors, came under fire and was accused of hypocrisy.

SCHOOL ATTEMPTS TO HIDE STUDENT’S GENDER TRANSITION FROM PARENTS, PUSHES LGBTQ+ CONTENT FOR MIDDLE SCHOOLERS

“Every common sense person would identify that is outrageous and insane,” Fishbein told “Fox & Friends Weekend” host Rachel Campos-Duffy on Sunday.

“Unfortunately, yes, there is a serious problem with kids who are suffering from gender dysphoria or confusion about their identity or sexual identity, but to get doctors and physicians going and mutilating those children before they are actually checking other ways of intervention and treatments that are not intrusive, that are not going to have consequences – physical or mental – for the rest of their lives,” she said.

Fishbein said the doctors behind the push have forgotten their oath to “do no harm.”

BIDEN EXPANDING ACCESS TO TAXPAYER-FUNDED ‘GENDER-AFFIRMING CARE’ FOR FEDERAL EMPLOYEES

Ripping educators who she claims are driving the ideological push that is compelling an “exponential increase” in children to second-guess their gender identity, Fishbein said there can be no “biological reason” for the change.

“We see what’s happening in school today. When kids are entering kindergarten, the way their teacher is greeting them is by asking them for their pronouns,” she said. “In fact, in classes in an elementary school, every class is starting with the teaching asking them [about their pronouns]…

DETRANSITIONED TEEN WANTS TO HOLD ‘GENDER-AFFIRMING’ SURGEONS ACCOUNTABLE: ‘WHAT HAPPENED TO ME IS HORRIBLE’

“There’s this whole process in the school that has definitely become the pipeline for that outrageous transgender and gender ideology,” she said.

The New York Times piece said the mother arrested for allowing her 10-year-old son to get a tattoo was no isolated incident, and pointed to separate arrests made in Ohio, Georgia and North Carolina as examples.

Former Reagan official blasts Western hypocrisy over Ukraine | RT World News

Paul Craig Roberts, who served in the Treasury in the 1980s, claims the US is using the conflict as a tool to weaken Russia

Former Reagan official blasts Western hypocrisy over Ukraine

Despite public statements to the contrary, the administration of US President Joe Biden is not at all concerned about the plight of Ukrainians and is prepared to sacrifice the nation on the altar of weakening Russia, an official who served under Ronald Reagan believes.

Paul Craig Roberts, who was assistant secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy in the 1980s, also alleged that the Russian military had until recently been refraining from unleashing all of its might on Ukraine.

In a piece published on his website on Friday and titled ‘It Seems Russia Won’t Require a Winter Offensive to Win the War’, Roberts said that Moscow’s latest missile strikes targeting critical infrastructure across Ukraine are a sign that the Kremlin “finally realized that Russia is at war.

According to the former official, for eight months since the start of its military campaign, Russia had been “protecting Ukraine from attack, thus helping Ukraine to conduct war against the Russian forces.

Despite that alleged strategy now having been revised, Russia still does not want to “destroy everything unless the West and its puppet Ukraine government fail to come to their senses.

Power boss urges Ukrainians to leave the country

The reason Moscow decided to spare its neighbor, Roberts argued, is that “Ukraine and the population there have been a part of Russia for centuries.

Moreover, having a poverty-stricken, bombed-out country on its border is not in Russia’s own interest, the ex-Treasury official said.

However, “from Washington’s standpoint, the more Ukraine is destroyed the better,” Roberts alleged, explaining that such an outcome would end up being an “economic and financial drain on Russia.” He also insisted that the US leadership does not care about the price the Ukrainians would have to pay in such a scenario.

It is unjust that it is Ukraine that is paying the cost of Western inhumanity and not Washington and the European capitals,” Roberts wrote.

He went on to lay into the “Western whore media,” accusing them of failing to report the true situation on the front lines. Reports of Russia’s heavy losses and imminent defeat are all totally misleading, he insisted.

He warned that “such absurd propaganda” and underestimation of Russia’s military capabilities could see the US and NATO becoming directly involved in the conflict, thus provoking World War III.

Since the start of Russia’s military operation in Ukraine, the West has been providing Kiev with massive assistance both in terms of weapons and money. Moscow has repeatedly warned that arms shipments will only prolong the conflict and increase the risk of a direct confrontation between Russia and NATO. A number of top Russian officials, including Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, have accused the bloc of waging war against Russia “by proxy,” while President Vladimir Putin has described his country as fighting “the entire Western military machine.

BREAKING: Brazilian Military Stands with Bolsonaro – Is Prepared to Invoke Article 142 to Save the Nation (VIDEO) — The Gateway Pundit

Matthew Tyrmand joined Steve Bannon on The War Room on Saturday.

Tyrmand has been reporting on the massive democracy protests against the Socialist party after the stolen presidential election last month.

In a freak election, where every vote was tallied by machines, Socialist felon Lula da Silva managed to win the election despite his party losing seats in the parliament against the very popular Jair Bolsonaro.

It was reminiscent of the US elections in 2020 and 2022 with impossible results that cannot be explained.

Tyrmand says the Brazilian military is ready to invoke Article 142 and save the nation from the Marxist horde.

The military stands with Bolsonaro and is ready to invoke Article 142 of the Brazilian Constitution, which says that the military has the role of “guaranteeing constitutional powers” under the “supreme authority of the president.”

Tell me Brazil is not the little brother of US stolen elections.

James Woods ZINGS Alyssa Milano for her Elon Musk dunk turned Volkswagen GAFFE as only he can and LOL | Twitchy

As Twitchy readers know, Alyssa Milano ‘gave back’ her Tesla because, oh we dunno, she thinks Elon Musk has turned Twitter into some giant white supremacy hot spot or something, and in place of her EVIL Tesla she bought a Volkswagon BECAUSE that’ll show him!

Imagine how stupid someone has to be to not only claim they ‘gave’ a car back over white supremacy but then bought a VOLKSWAGEN and bragged about it ON the evil white supremacy site … a car that’s history is tied to Hitler and the Nazis.

She tweeted this to millions of people as some sort of gotcha.

Wow.

Hard to believe this site is still free.

Painful.

Add to the whole situation this tweet from James Woods and YEAH, this was not good for SamanDUH, like at all.

OMG, we’d forgotten about the crocheted MASK.

HA HA HA HA HA HA

This woman.

Woof.

It does remind us of those old oven mitts we could make as kids. Yeah, this editor totally just dated herself, again. But they were made out of these little pieces of fabric and you’d slide them around this square peg thing?

Yeah.

Anyway …

You’d think someone so concerned about white supremacy would at least make sure the car she’s buying doesn’t literally have TIES TO IT.

Sadly, that reads.

Of course.

Zero-Tolerance: Chinese Lockdown Protests Intensify In Rare Display Of Defiance | ZeroHedge News

 

Protests in China over President Xi Jinping’s zero-tolerance Covid-19 measures have intensified – expanding from Beijing and the far western Xinjiang region to several other major cities, including Wuhan, Shanghai, and the eastern city of Nanjing, according to video and photos circulating on social media.

The weekend protests followed Friday demonstrations in Urumqi, the capitol of Xinjiang, after a deadly fire killed residents who were locked inside following lockdowns which have lasted more than 100 days. Officials have reported 10 deaths in the fire, however citizens have reported up to 40 who perished.

The protests are a rare display from a typically compliant citizenry, who know that crackdowns on dissent have intensified over the past decade. As the Wall Street Journal notes, ” Having protests over the same issue break out in multiple Chinese cities is almost unheard of, outside of nationalist outpourings, such as anti-Japanese protests.”

Elon Musk predicts ‘Twitter 2.0’ will have 1 billion users a month by 2024 | Business Insider

Elon Musk listed the features Twitter 2.0 will have in a tweet on Saturday.Maja Hitij/Getty Images

  • Elon Musk said the number of users signing up to Twitter was at a record high.
  • By 2024, he predicted that the social media platform would have a billion users a month.
  • A leaked document showed Twitter was losing its most active “heavy tweeters,” Reuters has reported.

Elon Musk has predicted that Twitter will have more than a billion users a month by 2024 as he continued to implement changes to the platform.

In a Saturday tweet, the new owner shared slides from his “Twitter company talk” listing features he plans to include in “Twitter 2.0” – a term he’s using to refer to his vision of the social media app.

Responding to a user who quote-tweeted him saying “This what failure looks like to the left,” Musk said: “I think I see a path to Twitter exceeding a billion monthly users in 12 to 18 months.”

Twitter had 238 million users in the second quarter of this year, a spokesperson told Reuters last month.

One of the graphs the Tesla and SpaceX CEO shared showed signups were at a record high. Another, which appears to be out-of-date, shows active minutes were also at an all-time high.

However, Insider has seen data gathered by Global Wireless Solutions, a consulting firm, about Twitter usage based on the smartphone usage of 200,000 Americans.

It found that the number of daily sessions on Twitter between October 28 to November 19 was 3% lower than the period between October 2 and October 27, the day Musk took over.

A recent internal report leaked to Reuters showed that Twitter was shedding its most active users, or “heavy tweeters.” While they account for less than 10% of overall monthly users, they accounted for 90% of all tweets and half of the company’s global revenue.

The document said a “heavy tweeter” logged in six to seven times a day and tweeted three to four times a week, Reuters reported.

Musk said in a tweet in April that some of the most-followed Twitter accounts, such as Barack Obama and Justin Bieber, rarely tweeted and “post very little content.”

Another slide that Musk shared stated that Twitter was now recruiting after mass layoffs and resignations.

Twitter didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment by Insider.

Here Is the Definitive List of Covid Jab Adverse Reactions to Learn and Share as More “Normies” Wake Up to the Truth | 🔔 The Liberty Daily

On Thanksgiving, I had an unexpected private conversation with a once-a-year-relative (those cousins and other family members you only communicate with during the holidays). She pulled me aside after dinner and asked, “Hey, where can I find info on that vaxx-stuff you always talk about?”

It was like opening an unexpectedly awesome Christmas present to hear her ask because she’s a “normie,” a standard American citizen who watches CNN or Fox News, obeys whatever recommendations she’s given by government officials, and lambasts anyone who thinks for themselves as “conspiracy theorists.” I had to fight back a smile after she asked me. I was happy to hear her coming around but I didn’t want her to perceive my joy as gloating.

She wasn’t very nice to me last Christmas. In fact, she wouldn’t get anywhere near my maskless, vaxx-free self.

Judging by recent calls for “amnesty” by former vaxx-nannies and the sharp rise in people searching for “Died Suddenly,” it’s clear the “normies” are waking up. But the powers-that-be aren’t making it very easy on them to learn the truth as the vast majority in corporate media, Big Tech, and other globalist-approved arbiters-of-truth are still pushing the universal jab agenda. They are Googling various terms and for the most part they’re not getting the answers they need.

This particular article will not be easy to find on Google. In fact, you almost certainly will NOT be able to find it there which is why we’re publishing it here and asking our readers to share it. The list of known adverse reactions to the Covid-19 jabs is growing. Below is an article by Marina Zhang from our premium news partners at The Epoch Times. Please read it and get it out to anyone who may be ready to wake up to the real dangers of experimental injections. If they can’t find the truth through mainstream channels, they’ll need to look to alternative media for answers.

That’s exactly what I told my relative. Here’s Marina’s article…

Slew of Unusual Adverse Events Becoming More Common After Covid “Vaccine” Rollout

If we go to a doctor or clinic for a vaccination, be it an influenza shot or a COVID-19 vaccine, we go with the expectation that it is safe.

Mild symptoms, such as headaches, fever, pain, and redness at the injection site, which we are typically informed of beforehand, are usually dismissed as short-lived side effects. Most of the time, people quickly recover from them and proceed with their lives as before.

However, since the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, a significant proportion of vaccinated people have experienced many unusual adverse events, and doctors are raising concerns. The high incidence of blood clots, myocarditis, pericarditis, and menstrual irregularities is gradually being addressed by public health officials and vaccine manufacturers.

Yet there are thousands more documented health conditions reported to the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)—some appearing very frequently—that have not yet been given the same level of attention.

Since their rollout, COVID-19 vaccines have prompted more VAERS adverse event reports than all VAERS reports made in the previous 30 years, comprising over 55 percent of vaccine injury and death reports. These reports have thousands of different adverse event labels.

Although nearly 1.5 million COVID-19 vaccine injury and death reports have been made to VAERS, studies say the true number of adverse reactions is many times higher. The 2005–2009 HHS-funded Harvard Pilgrim study found that less than 1 percent of adverse events following 1.4 million vaccines administered were reported to VAERS; several independent analysts estimate that only 2.5 percent of COVID vaccine adverse reactions are reported to VAERS. The system is also notorious for its redundancy: injection site swelling, vaccine site swelling, and swelling are recorded as separate events, and a person reporting to the system may select one or all three events.

Another study found that more serious adverse events are more likely to be reported.

This article examines several now-common adverse events following COVID vaccination. The figures are from the most recent update on Nov. 18, 2022

General Adverse Events

General adverse events following COVID vaccination are the most common. This is reflected in both VAERS reports and Pfizer’s post-market adverse event reports.

  • Fatigue: This is a common side effect for many vaccines, but is concerning and debilitating if prolonged. At least 121,200 cases of chronic fatigue have been reported to VAERS after injection with the COVID-19 vaccine, of which around 4037 percent, or more thanaround 49,000 cases, are reported as unrecovered.
  • Asthenia: Though often used synonymously with fatigue, asthenia defines a sense of weakness and lack of mental and physical energy. More than 34,000 cases have been reported, mostly in adults aged 30 or older, with almost 41 percent reported as unrecovered.
  • Death: More than 12,000 cases of deaths have been reported to VAERS following COVID-19 vaccinations. While independent researchers point to the varying ingredients and toxicity of these vaccines, and the high incidence of blood clots, arterial blockages caused by mysterious fibrous structures, and heart damage, NIH research speculates that anaphylaxis (severe allergic reactions), among other adverse events, may have contributed to such deaths. More than 25 percent of these reported deaths occurred within the first seven days after vaccination.
  • Night sweats: Night sweats, with 34,1700 cases reported, are far less common after vaccination than excessive sweating, with more than 2340,000 cases reported. Although night sweats independent of other symptoms are usually benign, this should be paid attention to if they become prolonged, disturb sleep, and come with other symptoms such as fatigue and weight loss.

Immunological Adverse Events

  • COVID-19: Listed as the ninth most common adverse event, more than 68,000 cases of COVID-19 infection following vaccination have been reported to VAERS. Several studies have indicated that a few months after administration of mRNA vaccines, individuals’ immunity to symptomatic COVID infections fall from positive efficacy—with immune defense present—to negative efficacy (studies 1, 2). Scientists generally understand negative efficacy in vaccines to mean that the vaccine would “induce a greater degree of susceptibility” to the disease in “vaccinated individuals relative to unvaccinated individuals.” Therefore, negative efficacy indicates that the effects of the shots will not just wane, but also that a vaccinated individual is more susceptible to COVID than an unvaccinated person. All of the COVID vaccines are designed to expose the body to a spike protein—a distinctive structural feature of the COVID virus that has an essential role in its pathogenesis—and studies have shown that exposure to the protein can cause immune cells to become less reactive and switch off important first-line immune pathways, which may lead to an untimely response in the event of infection (studies 1, 2, 3). Additionally, a new study found that when mice were injected with the lipid nanoparticles used in mRNA vaccines, cell count and immune responses were reduced in their first- and second-line cells, respectively.
  • Herpes zoster virus (VZV): More than 7,700 reports of VZV infection following COVID vaccination have been reported. It is not specified if these cases are new infections or relapses; several studies (1, 2) have documented relapse of the virus in COVID-vaccinated individuals. Relapse of latent viruses such as VZV from vaccinations has previously been quite rare, and often occurs later in life or when the infected individual is frail, and is therefore often seen as a sign of immunosuppression.
  • Hypersensitivity: More than 4,900 cases of allergic responses have been reported. Allergic responses are mechanistically related to inflammation, causing swelling, redness, itchiness, and, in the cases of anaphylaxis, difficulty breathing. Allergic responses after vaccinations can be triggered by the contents of the vaccines.
  • Inflammation: Inflammation is a common physical response activated whenever the body experiences an injury or encounters something foreign or toxic. Any disease or condition where a person experiences pain, redness, swelling, and even difficulty breathing is very likely driven by inflammation. Studies on the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein have shown that it is highly inflammatory. This mechanism can therefore provide a cause for many of the symptoms reported after vaccination.

Neurological Symptoms

  • Changes in sensation: This includes onset of the “pins and needles” sensation (more than 25,500 reports) and loss of sensation (more than 24,300 reports) following COVID-19 vaccination. These can be signs of neural disease, injury, or reduced blood flow to the neurons, leading to neural dysfunction.
  • Pain: Pain at the injection site is a common adverse event from vaccination. However, pain in the extremities (more thanalmost 78,000 reports) and neuralgia—sharp nerve pain—(more than 2,900 reports) can be a sign of neural injury or possibly autoimmunity. Studies have linked neuralgia with mRNA and adenovirus vaccines, although the causes are not well understood (studies 1, 2).
  • Tinnitus: Overactivity of the auditory nerves can cause ringing in the ears. Tinnitus has rarely been reported following previous vaccinations but is highly prevalent among people who received the COVID-19 vaccines. COVID vaccine-related cases comprise more than nearly 16,000 of the roughly 19,900 vaccine-related tinnitus cases reported to VAERS. An increasing amount of research is being done on vaccine-associated tinnitus.
  • Insomnia: Sleep problems are a fairly common adverse event, described as due to hyperactivity of the brain, with more than 9,800 cases reported. It is likely that some of these insomnia cases are related to vaccine-associated tinnitus, which can impact sleep.
  • Tremor: Described as involuntary shaking or movement, tremors associated with COVID vaccines are estimated to affect 0.002–0.02 percent of the vaccinated population. Though tremors themselves usually do not cause health problems, they are commonly associated with other neurological diseases including Parkinson’s disease. Other common post-vaccine symptoms such as muscle spasms and twitches can be confused for tremors, but muscle spasms are involuntary muscle contractions, and muscle twitches are fine movements of a small portion of a large muscle. So far, more than 15,000 cases of tremor have been reported to VAERS.
  • Anxiety: As a psychiatric symptom reportedly affecting more than 9,000 people after COVID vaccination, anxiety is hypothesized to be due to an imbalance of the emotional control centers in the brain, and has been associated with altered chemical levels.
  • Brain fog: The VAERS database has over 6,7600 cases of vaccinated people reporting confusional states, with over 2,2000 reporting memory impairment and over 5650 reporting thinking problems. “Brain fog” is a colloquial term that describes a bundle of symptoms often including but not excluded to confusion and dysfunction in thinking, memory, focus, and clarity. A 2020 study on mice published by Nature showed that spike proteins can cross the usually impervious blood-brain barrier. Another study documenting several autopsies on vaccinated individuals found spike proteins in neurons and the blood vessels in the brain.
  • Changes in taste and smell: After COVID vaccination, many people report a loss of taste (more than 5,5400) and smell (more than 4,4750), or a change in taste (more than4,900), and olfactory alterations where something that once smelled pleasant is perceived as smelling foul; these symptoms are similar to those experienced by many individuals infected with COVID. These changes can occur independently and can impact a person’s enjoyment of food, causing possible weight loss. They can also be a sign of neurodegeneration or deterioration.
  • Bell’s palsy: This is a relatively rare and usually temporary condition where facial muscles become paralyzed or weak, often resulting in a face droop. It is usually associated with viral infections and is caused by inflammation or swelling of the facial nerves. The condition usually affects one side of the face, though in rare cases, both sides can be affected. So far, more than 3,700 cases have been reported to VAERS. A 2022 paper evaluating 17 reports on Bell’s palsy and the COVID-19 vaccine found that affected individuals typically experience paralysis on the left side of their face, which can occur up to 48 days of vaccination. This has also been reported in Pfizer’s post-market adverse event report. The condition is usually harmless and can usually be reversed, though symptoms may return.

Musculoskeletal Conditions

  • Musculoskeletal symptoms: These are well documented in relation to the COVID-19 vaccines, including weakness and stiffness in the muscles and joints, impaired mobility, and balance problems and falls. A study published in BMJ found that 66 people experienced short-term inflammation in the joints 11 to 13 days after vaccination, despite having no history of previous or related symptoms. The vaccine may also be able to trigger autoimmune musculoskeletal diseases; in one study that followed 1,519 people with musculoskeletal diseases, 5 percent experienced a flare-up and 0.1 percent experienced severe symptoms following vaccination.

Cardiovascular Adverse Events

  • Heart palpitations: Over 16,300 cases of palpitations, described as faster, louder, or irregular heart pulses, have been reported to VAERS. Complaints of palpitations are common and usually benign. They are often associated with anxiety, but can be a sign of concerning and potentially life-threatening problems including tachycardia and tachyarrhythmia.
  • Hypertension: Over 7,700 cases of hypertension (high blood pressure), which is associated with and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, have been reported. A review that analyzed six studies of 357,387 individuals found that 3.2 percent—13,444 patients—reported abnormal or higher blood pressure after COVID vaccines. Another hypertension report found that nine hypertension patients increased blood pressure to stage 3 hypertension—blood pressure higher than 180/110—within minutes after vaccination (pdf).
  • Tachycardia: This is a concerning condition that occurs when a person’s heart rate increases past 100 beats a minute. It is a strong predictor of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases, with more than 7,000 cases reported to VAERS.
  • Pallor: Contrary to the effects of high blood pressure, pale facial features indicate reduced blood flow and are warning signs of low blood pressure. This is especially concerning if the pallor is sudden, as the person may faint from a sudden drop in blood pressure, and it could also be a sign of anaphylaxis. Over 6,3000 cases have been reported.
  • Blood clots: Though the FDA has mostly focused on the association between the J&J COVID vaccine—which employs a disabled adenovirus rather than mRNA—and increased risk of blood clot formation, VAERS shows more than 5,1004,750 reports of blood clots reported after COVID vaccinations, of which the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines comprise at least 3,900; mRNA vaccines have been administered much more broadly. Studies have shown that the mRNA vaccines’ spike protein is able to bind to red blood cells and thus may cause the formation of blood clots (studies 1, 2). Along with blood clots, more than 3,800 cerebrovascular events, more commonly known as strokes, have also been reported. Strokes are usually caused by clots in the blood vessels supplying the brain.
  • Myocarditis: Despite many media reports and research on post-COVID-vaccine myocarditis, out of all the cardiovascular adverse events listed in this article, myocarditis had the lowest number of events reported. More than 2,800 cases are reported, with serious cases comprising almost 70 percent of all myocarditis reports. It is likely that many mild myocarditis cases have not been reported or haven’t been diagnosed. According to VAERS data, young males under the age of 40 who have received mRNA vaccines appear to be more affected than any other group. Depending on the seriousness of the case, patients may be able to make a full recovery. Chronic myocarditis, however, is associated with enlargement of the heart and other cardiac problems, all of which may lead to cardiovascular diseases further down the line.

Pulmonary Adverse Events

  • Pneumonia: More than 5,000 cases of COVID-19 pneumonia and 4,100 cases of pneumonia have been reported following COVID vaccination, both of which are signs of a weak or dysregulated immune system (studies 1, 2), as people with a strong immune system are normally able to clear out a pulmonary infection before it progresses into inflammation and fluid retention in the pulmonary air sacs. COVID vaccines can induce or exacerbate pneumonia (studies 1, 2) and inflame the lungs after vaccination (studies 1, 2). The biopsy of a vaccinated person found spike protein present in the lung cells nine months after the individual was vaccinated. According to the report, the patient had suffered respiratory symptoms since vaccination.
  • Pulmonary embolism: This is a serious condition where blood clots are formed in the blood vessels in the lungs, which can reduce blood flow to the lungs, cause tissue damage, and therefore impair lung function and reduce blood oxygen levels. Affected individuals may cough frequently and experience difficulty breathing. At least two case studies have documented pulmonary embolisms after COVID-19 vaccinations in the United States (studies 1, 2). Pulmonary embolisms have also been reported after COVID-19 infections, but a study showed that there is very little literature to support the theory that infection greatly increases the risk of this condition. More than 3,700 cases have been reported after vaccination.
  • Acute respiratory failure: With more than 3,200 reports after vaccination, this life-threatening condition occurs when a person’s lungs cannot meet oxygen demand or are unable to adequately remove carbon dioxide. Depending on the trigger, physicians may be able to reverse the condition.

Endocrine-Related Adverse Events

  • Menstrual changes: MVAERS contains more than 115,500727 people have experienced cases of menstrual changes after COVID-19 vaccinations. This , includesing menstruation that is abnormally heavy, prolonged, more frequent, irregular, inconsistent, or light, and cessation of menstruation. These changes are more commonly observed in menopausal women aged 45–55, and perimenopausal women, usually 40 to 44 years of age. However, these events are also reported in children and adolescents. Alarmingly, several cases include 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds, women aged 60 to over 80, and, in very rare instances, infants—all of whom are people who should not be menstruating. The menstruation cycle is a carefully orchestrated rise and fall of estrogen and progesterone, and a sudden change can be indicative of endocrine dysfunction, formation of fibroids—muscular tumoral growths in the uterus—or other less common but concerning health problems.
  • Hot flashes: These sudden sensations of heat in the face, neck, and upper body typically occur in females during menopause, when estrogen and progesterone levels fall. Though far less common, hot flashes (or hot flushes) can also happen during menstrual cycles, mostly affecting women in their 40s who are experiencing perimenopause. VAERS contains 1,241 reports of hot flashes among women and girls of pre-menopausal age, including 31 cases in girls aged 6 to 17. There are also 727 cases reported in men. Studies on men have shown that hot flashes are usually due to reduced testosterone, such as may occur during hormonal-suppressant cancer therapy or because of testicular dysfunction. (studies 1, 2).

Accused of “Corona Insanity”: Swiss Doctor Locked Away in Mental Asylum for Speaking Against COVID Laws, April 2020

Dr. Thomas Binder is a Swiss cardiologist with over 34 years of experience in treating respiratory infections. He received a doctorate in immunology and virology, specializing in internal medicine and cardiology, from the University of Zurich. Binder is an intelligent man who was deemed insane by the Swiss government for speaking out against COVID regulations.

Dr. Binder has been an outspoken critic of COVID restrictions since the beginning of the pandemic. On April 9, 2020, the cardiologist criticized the government’s response to COVID and provided his own analysis of the virus. He posted his thoughts on his private website, and the post received over 20,000 views.

Three days later, a day before Easter, 60 armed police officers and 20 members of the Kantonspolizei Aargau’s anti-terrorism unit forcibly removed Dr. Binder from his home.

Authorities searched through the doctor’s online activity and could not find anything to use against him. However, an emergency room doctor who was working with the authorities arrived and diagnosed Dr. Binder with “corona insanity.” He was locked away in a mental asylum for questioning the COVID narrative.
