Tuesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Alternative streaming platforms are helping to spread coronavirus vaccine misinformation Multiple alternative streaming platforms have been hosting videos promoting misinformation about coronavirus vaccines. These videos have often received significant numbers of views and have in turn been spread onto mainstream platforms like Facebook. In recent months, as the vaccine rollout has ramped up in the United States and worldwide, mainstream social media platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, have struggled to combat content that is casting doubt or trying to create fear about coronavirus vaccines — which are safe and effective — despite their claims to ban vaccine misinformation on the platforms. In particular, videos targeting the vaccines have been spreading significantly. But anti-vaccine videos are not spreading on just mainstream platforms: Alternative streaming platforms known for lax moderation rules — BitChute, Rumble, lbry.tv, Brand New Tube, Infowars’ streaming platform banned.video, and Brighteon — have hosted anti-vaccine videos in recent months that have earned millions of views combined. During that time, Media Matters has tracked multiple instances of this harmful content spreading to Facebook, in violation of that platform’s coronavirus misinformation ban.
Comment of The Day!
Dear Robert and Super Don,
I was wondering if congratulations were in order for your deplatforming from Spotify? I was able to listen to the show on Spotify through this past Sunday, but it appears your presence has disappeared effective yesterday (Monday).
Clearly you guys are doing a fantastic job, and must be over the target since the flak has gotta thicker. ; )
I would like to suggest that maybe you could get some sort of new hosting for your podcast episodes, so the people can go back and listen if desired.
Another idea I had for you was to collect all of your podcast from 2020 on thumb drives and sell them to those to who wants them. I would certainly buy one!
Keep up the great work you guys. We need you now more than ever!
Bill Would Ban Vaccinations “Passport” Requirement For Access To Businesses And Benefits State senators will be asked this week to amend House Bill 2190 in hopes of protecting most Arizonans from being required to receive any type of vaccination in order to obtain government aid, enter a business or event venue, or use public transportation, Arizona Daily Independent has learned. A “strike everything” amendment is set to be introduced by Sen. Kelly Townsend to HB2190, a bill first introduced in January by Rep. Bret Roberts, who sought to ensure counties provide the legislature with detailed criminal justice data. Roberts’ bill passed the House last month on a 59 to 0 vote and already had its first two readings in the Senate. However, Townsend’s amendment slated to be considered during Wednesday’s meeting of the Senate Appropriations Committee would strike -or delete- the criminal justice language and replace it with legislation related to prohibiting vaccination requirements, or what has been coined as vaccination passports. The amendment prohibits any business in Arizona from refusing to provide services to someone based on a person’s vaccination status. It would also forbid consideration of someone’s vaccination status to receive a government benefit, service, or permit. And it would ban local, county, or state public entities from providing any form of incentive -financial or other- to someone who becomes vaccinated. The type of vaccination is not defined.
DeSantis vows to ban ‘vaccination passports’ as he signs law shielding businesses from COVID-19 liability Florida businesses soon won’t be able to screen customers based on whether they’ve received the COVID-19 vaccine, Gov. Ron DeSantis said Monday, even as he signed a bill designed to shield companies from pandemic-related lawsuits. “It’s completely unacceptable,” DeSantis said of what he called “vaccination passports,” a card or some other method of proving an individual has been inoculated against the virus. “You want to go to a movie theater, should you have to show that? No. You want to go to a game, [or] a theme park? No. So we’re not supportive of that.” DeSantis said an executive order was coming soon, possibly by Tuesday, against vaccination passports, and he called for the Legislature to pass a bill making a ban permanent. The Legislature is nearing the midway point of a 60-day session scheduled to end April 30. DeSantis said allowing major corporations to have access to vaccination information was like having “the fox [guarding] the henhouse,” citing privacy concerns. But some critics questioned why DeSantis would restrict businesses’ ability to protect employees and customers against the coronavirus by ordering such a ban. Mac Stipanovich, a Tallahassee consultant and outspoken anti-Trump Republican turned independent, called the ban “ridiculous on its face.”
‘Nobody Is Safe Until Everyone Is Safe’: World Leaders Call For Global Pandemic Preparedness Treaty More than 20 world leaders came together Tuesday to call for a “new international treaty for pandemic preparedness and response” that would help build the cooperation needed to manage inevitable future public health crises, though a number of crucial countries are absent from the list of signatories, including China which has come under global fire for its lack of cooperation throughout this pandemic and the SARS pandemic that preceded it. In a joint article published in newspapers around the world, the leaders including the U.K.’s Boris Johnson, Germany’s Angela Merkel, France’s Emmanuel Macron and Korea’s Moon Jae-in said the Covid-19 pandemic has been the biggest challenge to world order since World War II. Twenty three countries backed the idea of the international treaty, as well as World Health Organization chief Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and European Council president Charles Michel. The group said future pandemics and health emergencies are inevitable and proposed a treaty to foster international cooperation akin to the global settlement that emerged from World War II.
Question of The Day!
Hello! I have morgellons syndrome. I would like to know 1) do you know how this can be cured… Completely killed? ..not just pushed back? How can we know? How do we do it? 2) what is your best suggestion as to how to help others? 3) finally, I’m pretty sure this got “activated” when covid came through last summer…could this have something to do with it? I’m also pretty sure I’ve been genetically modified. Is this just me or is this from chemtrails and latently affecting everyone? Thank you. God bless. (By the way, mine manifested with the biofilaments, had to shave my head, they are still coming out and I also have learned some techniques that are helping and I’m willing to share all I’ve learned)
Hi RSB and Super Don,
I have a friend whose husband (a teacher) recently decided to get the mRNA jab. She tried to convince him not to, but he choose to believe propaganda and marketing slogans like “safe and effective.” They have one daughter together and before he got the shot, she wanted to conceive again because she is afraid of what might happen if she conceives afterward. They successfully conceived, by the way. My question is, what are your thoughts about effects of intercourse between those who got this shot and those who haven’t? Is there a potential STD-like condition that could materialize? Does my friend need to worry that relations with her husband could be a detriment to her baby growing inside of her?

EXCLUSIVE: Per the CDC There Are Nearly Twice As Many Vaccine Related Deaths SO FAR in 2021 (1,755) Than All the Vaccine Deaths this Past Decade (994) There are more US deaths related to vaccines in 2021 in less than 3 months than there were the entire past decade. The number of deaths related to vaccines this year has absolutely skyrocketed. According to the CDC’s own data, in 2021 in less than 3 months, we have already seen over 1,750 deaths due to vaccines in the US. “The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database contains information on unverified reports of adverse events (illnesses, health problems and/or symptoms) following immunization with US-licensed vaccines. Reports are accepted from anyone and can be submitted electronically at www.vaers.hhs.gov.” The ages of those who have died plies with the elderly The two primary vaccine manufacturers who have the most deaths related to their vaccines are Moderna and Pfizer/Biontech
Lockdowns Do Not Control the Coronavirus: The Evidence The use of universal lockdowns in the event of the appearance of a new pathogen has no precedent. It has been a science experiment in real time, with most of the human population used as lab rats. The costs are legion. The question is whether lockdowns worked to control the virus in a way that is scientifically verifiable. Based on the following studies, the answer is no and for a variety of reasons: bad data, no correlations, no causal demonstration, anomalous exceptions, and so on. There is no relationship between lockdowns (or whatever else people want to call them to mask their true nature) and virus control. Perhaps this is a shocking revelation, given that universal social and economic controls are becoming the new orthodoxy. In a saner world, the burden of proof really should belong to the lockdowners, since it is they who overthrew 100 years of public-health wisdom and replaced it with an untested, top-down imposition on freedom and human rights. They never accepted that burden. They took it as axiomatic that a virus could be intimidated and frightened by credentials, edicts, speeches, and masked gendarmes. The pro-lockdown evidence is shockingly thin, and based largely on comparing real-world outcomes against dire computer-generated forecasts derived from empirically untested models, and then merely positing that stringencies and “nonpharmaceutical interventions” account for the difference between the fictionalized vs. the real outcome. The anti-lockdown studies, on the other hand, are evidence-based, robust, and thorough, grappling with the data we have (with all its flaws) and looking at the results in light of controls on the population.
New Covid vaccines needed globally within a year, say scientists The planet could have a year or less before first-generation Covid-19 vaccines are ineffective and modified formulations are needed, according to a survey of epidemiologists, virologists and infectious disease specialists. Scientists have long stressed that a global vaccination effort is needed to satisfactorily neutralise the threat of Covid-19. This is due to the threat of variations of the virus – some more transmissible, deadly and less susceptible to vaccines – that are emerging and percolating. The grim forecast of a year or less comes from two-thirds of respondents, according to the People’s Vaccine Alliance, a coalition of organisations including Amnesty International, Oxfam, and UNAIDS, who carried out the survey of 77 scientists from 28 countries. Nearly one-third of the respondents indicated that the time-frame was likely nine months or less. Persistent low vaccine coverage in many countries would make it more likely for vaccine-resistant mutations to appear, said 88% of the respondents, who work across illustrious institutions such as Johns Hopkins, Yale, Imperial College, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the University of Edinburgh.
Reinstate coronavirus mask mandates, Biden urges governors President Biden called on governors and local leaders to reinstate coronavirus-related mask mandates during a White House briefing Monday, before announcing several other vaccine-related directives. “I’m reiterating my call for every governor, mayor and local leader to maintain and reinstate the mask mandate,” Biden said. “Please, this is not politics, reinstate the mandate if you let it down.” The call follows actions taken by several states to lift mask requirements earlier this month and ease business restrictions, such as Texas and Mississippi, which drew sharp criticism amid early-stage vaccine rollouts and the spread of highly transmissible coronavirus variants. However, just over two weeks after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott lifted coronavirus mandates allowing businesses to operate at 100% capacity and made masks optional, the red state is still reporting decreases in cases and hospitalizations. The governor championed his state’s success in a Friday night tweet saying, “Today Texas recorded the lowest 7-day COVID positivity rate since that data began being calculated: 5.43%.” During Monday’s briefing, Biden said businesses should require masks, too. When prompted by a journalist, the president agreed that some states should pause reopening efforts.
A visit to ‘Dr. Google’ makes patients better at diagnosis Medical professionals often advise patients not to search the Internet for their symptoms before coming into the clinic, yet many people turn to “Dr. Google” when feeling sick. Concerns about “cyberchondria”—or increased anxiety induced by the Internet—have made the value of using Internet searches controversial. In a new study that used case vignettes, researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School Department of Health Care Policy explored the impact Internet searches have on patients’ abilities to reach a correct diagnosis. They found that study outcomes suggest the Internet may not be so harmful after all. Participants across the board demonstrated modest improvements in reaching an accurate diagnosis after looking up symptoms on the Internet. Participants additionally showed no difference in reported anxiety nor in triage abilities. Results are published in JAMA Network Open. “I have patients all the time, where the only reason they come into my office is because they Googled something and the Internet said they have cancer. I wondered, ‘Is this all patients? How much cyberchondria is the Internet creating?'” said corresponding author David Levine, MD, MPH, of the Division of General Internal Medicine & Primary Care at the Brigham.
