Busted: 11 COVID Assumptions Based on Fear not Fact COVID assumptions – the assumptions people make about COVID, how dangerous it is, how it spreads and what we need to do to stop it – are running rampant, running far more wildly than the supposed virus SARS-CoV2 itself. The coldly calculated campaign of propaganda surrounding this ‘pandemic’ has achieved its aim. Besieged with a slew of contradictory information coming from all angles, people in general have succumbed to confusion. Some have given up trying to understand the situation and found it is just easier to obey official directives, even if it means giving up long-held rights. Below is a list of commonly held COVID assumptions which, if you believe them, will make you much more likely to submit to the robotic, insane and abnormal conditions of the New Normal – screening, testing, contact tracing, monitoring, surveillance, mask-wearing, social distancing, quarantine and isolation, with mandatory vaccination and microchipping to come.
“Tens of millions of vaccines” will be “put into American arms” by end of year, official says A senior Trump administration official said Monday that they are “very confident that by year end we will have tens of millions of vaccines put into American arms.” Under Operation Warp Speed, vaccine manufacturing will begin by the end of summer, the senior official said during a telephone briefing. “In many cases it’s already underway,” the official said. “We’re acquiring the equipment, we’re setting up the space, we’re acquiring, in some cases, the raw materials to do it. We have project teams that are assigned to go out to each manufacturing site.” The senior administration official added that Operation Warp Speed is not waiting on the results from the portion of the trial that determines whether the vaccine works: “We will be manufacturing hundreds of millions of doses long before phase three clinical trials are complete,” the official said. The goal of Operation Warp Speed is to deliver “300 million doses of a safe, effective vaccine for COVID-19 by January 2021,” according to a fact sheet on the US Department of Health and Human Services website.
Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine could cruise to $5B in sales—or more, analysts say Moderna has never scored a commercial approval for any of its drugs or vaccines, but analysts with Jefferies think the company has a winner in its COVID-19 shot. And not just any winner—a multibillion-dollar blockbuster. The company, a frontrunner in the global vaccine race, will likely win an emergency approval or full approval early next year and earn billions of dollars in sales, Jefferies analysts wrote in a Monday note initiating coverage on the company. Based on discussions with opinion leaders and public disclosures by the company, the analysts see a “good probability Moderna’s vaccine will work and get at least emergency use authorization in 2021,” Jefferies’ Michael Yee wrote in the note to clients. A safe and effective vaccine “can generate billions in sales, which we see as reasonable given there would be high demand over the first 1-2 years.” The analysts predict 50 million people will be vaccinated in 2021 at $50 per dose. Under that scenario, Moderna could earn about $2 billion in 2021 and $5 billion over the next few years. But if 100 million or 200 million people get vaccines at a higher price point, “this can quickly get to big numbers of $10-20B+ in theory,” Yee wrote. Aside from revenues in COVID-19, success would unlock “platform value” as the company is advancing other drugs and vaccines against various diseases.

Bastille Day: Celebrations Scaled Down In France Amid COVID-19 Bastille Day celebrations this year in France has been scaled down due to the coronavirus pandemic. “This July 14, we will pay tribute to those who have put all their strength, all their skills, all their humanity against the virus,” French President Emanuel Macron tweeted. For the first time since 1945, authorities have called off the annual military parade along the Champs-Elysees in Paris, according to news agency AFP. Only 2,000 soldiers – half the usual number – will gather at the Place de la Concorde. People will not be allowed near the Concorde square to avoid the spread of the infection. The doctors in France have asked people not to let their guard down and use face masks. The traditional flypast – with acrobatic jets, trailing blue, white and red smoke – by the country’s air force will however take place. This year the flypast will be dedicated to the frontline coronavirus health workers. Eiffel Tower will be closed to public for the Bastille Day fireworks in Paris. Reports say, most celebrations have been called off.
State of the Nullification Movement Report 2019-20 “Let us remember that if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom!” Writing as Candidus in the Boston Gazette on Oct. 14, 1771, Samuel Adams recognized an important and timeless truth. Turning a blind eye to an attack on liberty only guarantees that more attacks will follow in the future. The same goes for violations of the Constitution, which the Founders often referred to as “usurpations,” or the exercise of “arbitrary power.” History bears out this truth. Step-by-step, the federal government has expanded its own power and chipped away our liberties as most people turned a blind eye. In his 1791 Opinion on the Constitutionality of a National Bank, Thomas Jefferson agreed with Adams in principle when he wrote: “I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: That ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people.’ [10th Amendment] To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn around the powers of Congress is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition.” [emphasis added] Today we face a federal government that has taken literally hundreds of thousands of steps beyond the boundaries drawn by the Constitution.Here at the Tenth Amendment Center, we will never turn a blind eye, and step-by-step, we’re pushing the feds back. But turning things around from a government with tens of thousands of unconstitutional “laws,” regulations, rules and orders on the books isn’t going to happen in a single step either. As Thomas Jefferson put it in a 1790 letter to the Rev. Charles Clay: “The ground of liberty is to be gained by inches, that we must be contented to secure what we can get from time to time, and eternally press forward for what is yet to get. It takes time to persuade men to do even what is for their own good.” [emphasis added] To be blunt, anyone promising a silver bullet is lying to you.
Hour2 – John Hewlett – Cardio Miracle
The discovery of the function of nitric oxide which won the Nobel Prize in medicine gave humanity hope to conquer the deadliest disease on the planet. Scientist would soon learn nitric oxide not only regulates blood pressure and increases blood flow, but plays a vital role on the whole body system. The goal to change lives one person at a time became Cardio Miracle’s clarion call. To do this the founder, John Hewlett, embarked on a five year journey to produce the world’s finest nitric oxide supplement. Cardio Miracle’s commitment to excellence resulted in the formulation of the most effective defense against heart disease and to provide the best natural pathway to produce nitric oxide in the body. Cardio Miracle was designed to give the body an instant jolt of nitric oxide and then sustain the nitric oxide boosting effects for a 12 hour period. The highest quality ingredients were selected before this formula was put through rigorous laboratory testing to ensure efficacy, quality and sustained delivery. The end result is the most synergistic blend of mostly organic, bioavailable active ingredients.
A balancing act between immunity and longevity As we age, the immune system gradually becomes impaired. One aspect of this impairment is chronic inflammation in the elderly, which means that the immune system is constantly active and sends out inflammatory substances. Such chronic inflammation is associated with multiple age-related diseases including arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease, and impaired immune responses to infection. One of the questions in aging research is whether chronic inflammation is a cause of aging, or a consequence of the aging process itself? Scientists in the laboratory of Director Adam Antebi at the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Aging in Cologne, Germany have found evidence suggesting that increased inflammation causes the aging process to speed up, and that there is a fine balance between maintaining immune system function and longevity. From their work in the tiny roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans, the scientists discovered a change in an evolutionarily conserved gene called PUF60, which made the worms long lived but at the same time dampened the immune response. Worms with this change lived about 20% longer than normal worms, but when they were infected with certain bacteria, they succumbed more quickly to the infection. This means that an overactive immune system also has a price: it shortens life span. Conversely, a less active immune system pays off as longer life span—as long as the animal does not die from an infection.
COVID patients can be overwhelmed with inflammation. Doctors are learning to calm that ‘storm’ In the millions of tiny air sacs tasked with absorbing oxygen in Brett Breslow’s lungs, the scene was chaos. Some of the sacs were swollen with fluid that had leaked from surrounding blood vessels. Others had simply collapsed. The grim result: the Cherry Hill man was starved of oxygen, leading doctors at Cooper University Hospital to put him on a ventilator for 19 days. Breslow was suffering from a massive bout of inflammation—a catch-all description for the damage in many of the sickest patients with COVID-19. In addition to the assault on his lungs, the disease was harming his liver and kidneys, as well as causing him to form abnormal blood clots. “It really attacked every organ in the body,” said his wife, Amy. Physicians have known for decades how to treat inflammation. In 1950, the Nobel Prize was given to researchers who found that in people with rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation could be calmed with steroids (not the kind used illegally by some athletes, but synthetic versions of a different class of hormones). Later that year, steroids were used to treat asthma, another widespread inflammatory condition.
Grant Imahara, Host of ‘MythBusters’ and ‘White Rabbit Project,’ Dies at 49 An electrical engineer and roboticist by training, he worked for a long time at Lucasfilm’s THX and Industrial Light and Magic divisions. Grant Imahara, an electrical engineer and roboticist who hosted the popular science show MythBusters and Netflix’s White Rabbit Project, has died. He was 49. Imahara died suddenly following a brain aneurysm, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. “We are heartbroken to hear this sad news about Grant. He was an important part of our Discovery family and a really wonderful man. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family,” a representative for Discovery said in a statement Monday. An electrical engineer and roboticist by training, he joined Discovery’s MythBusters in its third season, replacing Scottie Chapman, and was with the show until 2014 when he left with co-hosts Kari Byron and Tory Belleci. The trio would reunite in 2016 for Netflix’s White Rabbit Project, which lasted for one season. On MythBusters, Imahara used his technical expertise to design and build robots and also operated the computers and electronics needed to test myths.
Question of The Day!
Thank you for all that you do! My granddaughter Hazel is 3. She speaks at home with family but doesn’t speak outside the home or when someone else comes into the house and shows some signs of anxiety.. Even with neighbours that she knows. A friend who is a dentist said two things – that Hazel breathes from her mouth and that she sees Selective Mutism. Can you give us some advise on where to go from here. Thank you so much for your time.
I need your help. My mother is a frequent listener and a Patreon supporter. She is in the northeast cleaning out my mothers dusty/moldy etc house. On Sunday night she started shivering and it lasted most of the night and it was uncontrollable shivering. On Monday she woke up with a migraine in the sinus area that is debilitating. To the rest of the day she went between shivering and a fever and it went as high as 101 degrees last night. Today she still has shivers and alternating fever and wants to know if you can offer some advice. She does not want to go to a doctor here in the northeast because of their contact tracing. My mother does not own any homeopathy products but brought dozens of her other supplements with her including some natural food source vitamins. She is not so concerned about riding this out as much as panicking that it is going to get worse and then what. Any advice would be helpful please? Thank you Robert, she is sick enough that she cannot even type this. Thank you – (her son Robert)
