Friday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
‘Brits are dying in their tens of thousands – and we don’t really have any idea why’ Tens of thousands more Brits were dying than expected and experts aren’t quite sure why that is. From May to December last year, there were 32,441 excess deaths in England and Wales, excluding deaths from Covid. Excess deaths are defined as the number of people who died above the five-year average – worked out excluding 2020 due to how Covid spiked death figures that year. This means that over 32,000 Brits would’ve been expected to be alive, but died according to Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures across this period. These shocking figures raised a number of important questions about what is happening to the country’s populations, how it’s changing, and why so many more people are dying. Ever since the Covid pandemic, excess deaths have fluctuated wildly month on month, tumbling well below the five-year average or spiking far above it. The spikes in excess deaths can be attributed to a number of causes, but it isn’t clear what’s driving these spikes or causing these drop-offs. Similarly, earlier in 2022, excess deaths dipped well below average levels, with one expert group speculating to the Mirror that a ‘mortality displacement’ effect might explain why so many deaths are bunched up in the space of several months, being passed on from the months prior.
US Failure to Recognize Natural Immunity Negatively Affected Pandemic Response: NIH Scientist The failure to recognize how post-infection immunity is similar or superior to that bestowed by vaccination led to prolonged school closures and other problems, a National Institutes of Health (NIH) scientist was set to tell Congress on May 11. U.S. health agencies “chose to disregard natural immunity,” leading to “lost jobs, staffing shortages, children kept out of school, and wasted vaccines,” Margery Smelkinson, a research scientist at the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), said in prepared testimony. Smelkinson was one of three experts scheduled to testify to the U.S. House of Representatives Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic in Washington on Capitol Hill, in a hearing on immunity during the pandemic. Smelkinson, who said she was testifying in her personal capacity, is employed by the same agency headed for decades by Dr. Anthony Fauci, who repeatedly downplayed natural immunity along with other top public health officials. Fauci and Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), were among the officials to meet secretly in 2021 to decide whether post-infection immunity should count as one or more vaccine doses in the recommended COVID-19 vaccination schedule, according to documents obtained by The Epoch Times. The meeting resulted in no changes to the recommendations, which advise virtually all Americans to get a vaccine even if they’ve recovered from COVID-19.
Special Guest Kimberly Overton
Ms. Overton spent over 25 years working in the healthcare industry, serving in both clinical and administrative roles. Her background is in critical care and telehealth nursing. As a dedicated registered nurse, she has been a strong advocate for autonomy and informed consent throughout her career. She found herself at a crossroads when the current medical system became tyrannical and trampled her rights as well as the rights of her patients. She has become a pioneer and a leader for the nursing community by organizing the Nurse Freedom Network (NFN) to assist nurses as well as other professionals to come out of the current system. Ms. Overton has spoken at such events as the Wellness Parenting Revolution Health & Freedom Summit, Defeat The Mandates, DC, and the Global Covid Summit with Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Pierre Kory, et.al.
As we continue to build on our mission at Nurse Freedom Network, we envision growth that will move beyond just advocacy alone; growth that will have our network of nurses and other healthcare professionals focused on wellness and prevention of disease, rather than just “managing” disease – Offense rather than defense.
Our ultimate goal will be to provide true, patient-centered care, offering guidance that will help our clients reach an optimal level of immune health and overall wellbeing. This will be our best defense against Covid-19 or any other virus we can expect to see in the future.
The care provided will be individualized because there are no “one-size-fits-all” scenarios in healthcare.
We aim to offer both nurses and patients alike FREEDOM from the oppressive nature of our existing, broken healthcare system. Nurses will enjoy opportunities to serve their patients and communities while earning income from their privately owned concierge nursing practice, and everyone will benefit from limiting the influence of insurance & pharmaceutical companies – Patients will find freedom from the often devastating effects of polypharmacy and learn ways to improve their overall health & wellbeing.
At Nurse Freedom Network, we are also strong advocates for Early Outpatient Treatment in the fight against Covid-19, and we are working tirelessly to ensure that this option is one that will be easily accessible, affordable, and transparent to patients.
More Pesticides on Kids’ Food? EPA Wants to Greenlight Chemical Linked to Reproduction, Developmental Issues Federal regulators are poised to allow U.S. farmers to start applying a pesticide currently restricted to non-food uses on fields producing an array of food crops in a move that scientists and advocates say could threaten human and ecological health. Last week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a proposed decision to allow the first-ever uses of chlormequat chloride on wheat, barley, oats and a hybrid of rye and wheat known as triticale. The agency said the move is aimed at helping farmers limit the bending and breaking of small grains, a condition called lodging, which can impair harvesting and reduce yields. The pesticide acts as a plant growth regulator, controlling plant size by blocking hormones that stimulate growth prior to bloom. Chlormequat is not currently approved for use on food or animal feed in the U.S., though it has been allowed for use on ornamental crops grown in nurseries and greenhouses since 1962. Farm groups welcomed the EPA action; the pesticide is already used by farmers in other countries on small grain products that are imported to the U.S. But critics say laboratory research has linked the chemical to problems with reproduction and development, and the EPA should not be putting people and animals at greater risk of exposure.
Total Vindication: Full Reinstatement and Back Pay For Three Barrington (RI) Teachers Fired For Refusing Covid Vax In an overwhelming victory, the three Barrington (RI) teachers fired last year for refusing the Covid vaccine have settled all claims against the Barrington School Committee in their favor, their lawyer, Greg Piccirilli announced today. Each of the three teachers—Brittany DiOrio, Stephanie Hines, and Kerri Thurber—had requested a religious exemption from taking the Barrington school district’s mandatory Covid vaccine at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year. The district denied their requests, suspended them without pay, and ultimately fired them effective January 1st of 2022. Brittany DiOrio expressed her appreciation for our coverage: “In January 2022, I was terminated from my teaching position for not following a vaccine mandate. Barrington was and continues to be the only district in the state of RI mandating/terminating teachers for not complying with a mandate. Legal Insurrection not only provided clear, accurate and precise information regarding our case, Professor Jacobson and his team took the time to hear our story and put into words what we had experienced during this incredibly difficult time. Legal Insurrection showcased the blatant overreach of the Barrington school committee as well as the current administration. Continued support and gratitude for the team at Legal Insurrection, who work tirelessly to get the truth heard.”

Confessions of ChatGPT: ‘Interview’ with bot reveals fascinating, downright strange questions it’s often asked ChatGPT, the enigmatic, yet enthralling chatbot that’s taken the world by storm, is opening the eyes of millions to the enormous power of artificial intelligence. Indeed, the AI program encapsulates a mere shred of what our future holds, with technology truly working autonomously and in tandem with humans in countless ways from here on out. For some it is a frightening dose of reality; for others it is an exciting proposition filled with ideas of how we’ll be able to improve our lives and accomplish more than we ever imagined possible. In one instance, it helped a NYC woman write a legal letter to her landlord to get appliances in her building fixed. In another example, it was able to provide liver cancer and cirrhosis patients with useful medical advice. It is not perfect though — it can return inaccurate information, fabricated responses, false sources, incorrect links, and outdated data. It only knows the world up until September 2021, though it does learn from the questions users ask it.If you haven’t toyed around with ChatGPT yet, it’s quite stunning. You can talk to it like you would any human and it can respond in a friendly, conversational manner. You can ask it to help you in no shortage of ways. In a matter of seconds it can spit out an entire book report outline, biography, exercise routine, guided meditation, music recommendations, nutrition data, and just about anything else you might typically turn to Google for assistance.
Are lab-grown brains legally people? The law may be on their side Scientists doing brain research could soon have an ethical and legal dilemma on their hands. A new study is looking at the question of whether a brain organoid fits the legal definition of a person. These tiny, lab-grown portions of brain tissue are currently helping researchers study human development and search for new treatments for neural diseases. However, all of this could stop if legal scholars find that mini brains deserve the same rights and protections that real people have. A team at Hiroshima University examined this moral issue, studying what constitutes personhood and how brain organoids for scientific research fit the current definition. “The moral status of human brain organoids has often been discussed, but their legal status has rarely been discussed,” says corresponding author Tsutomu Sawai, an associate professor in the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, in a university release. “To clarify the legal status of human brain organoids will illuminate issues such as what information should be informed to the cell donor, to what extent the donor’s consent justifies the research, and what uses are acceptable.”
Judge in Virginia says law banning sales of handguns to young adults is unconstitutional A federal judge in Virginia has ruled that a law banning licensed federal firearms dealers from selling handguns to young adults under 21 violates the Second Amendment and is unconstitutional. The ruling Wednesday by U.S. District Court Judge Robert Payne in Richmond, if not overturned, would allow dealers to sell handguns to 18- to 20-year-olds. In his 71-page ruling, Payne wrote that many of the rights and responsibilities of citizenship are granted at the age of 18, including the right to vote, enlist in the military without parental permission and serve on a federal jury. “If the Court were to exclude 18-to-20-year-olds from the Second Amendment’s protection, it would impose limitations on the Second Amendment that do not exist with other constitutional guarantees,” Payne wrote. “Because the statutes and regulations in question are not consistent with our Nation’s history and tradition, they, therefore, cannot stand,” he wrote. Payne’s ruling is the latest decision striking down gun laws in the wake of a landmark Supreme Court ruling last year that changed the test courts have long used to evaluate challenges to firearm restrictions. The Supreme Court said judges should no longer consider whether the law serves public interests, like enhancing public safety. Governments that want to uphold a gun restriction must look back into history to show it is consistent with the country’s “historical tradition of firearm regulation,” the Supreme Court said.
Senate Republican unveils bill to end government internet censorship Missouri GOP Sen. Eric Schmitt will introduce legislation Wednesday that would outlaw government-requested censorship of lawful online speech — restarting discussion of how to accomplish the lofty goal after earlier ideas stalled. Schmitt’s COLLUDE Act would strip Big Tech platforms of legal immunity for third-party content under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 if they cooperate with government demands to remove First Amendment-protected speech. “Big Tech executives have no business acting as censors on behalf of the federal government, and accountability is coming for those who sought to silence those whom they disagreed with,” Schmitt said. “Freedom of speech is a foundational aspect of our republic and must be jealously guarded,” he added. Schmitt was elected to the Senate this past November after four years as Missouri’s attorney general. In his previous role, the Republican used litigation to unearth details about federal pressure on social media companies to censor speech. The COLLUDE Act‘s full name is the Curtailing Online Limitations that Lead Unconstitutionally to Democracy’s Erosion Act.
