Tuesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
In Major Shift, NIH Admits Funding Risky Virus Research in Wuhan I totally resent the lie you are now propagating.” Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared to be channeling the frustration of millions of Americans when he spoke those words during an invective-laden, made-for-Twitter Senate hearing on July 20. You didn’t have to be a Democrat to be fed up with all the xenophobic finger-pointing and outright disinformation, coming mainly from the right, up to and including the claim that COVID-19 was a bioweapon cooked up in a lab. The immediate target of Dr. Fauci’s wrath was Senator Rand Paul, who was pressing the nation’s top doctor to say whether the National Institutes of Health had ever funded risky coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Based on new information disclosed by the National Institutes of Health, however, Paul might have been onto something. On Wednesday, the NIH sent a letter to members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce that acknowledged two facts. One was that EcoHealth Alliance, a New York City–based nonprofit that partners with far-flung laboratories to research and prevent the outbreak of emerging diseases, did indeed enhance a bat coronavirus to become potentially more infectious to humans, which the NIH letter described as an “unexpected result” of the research it funded that was carried out in partnership with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The second was that EcoHealth Alliance violated the terms of its grant conditions stipulating that it had to report if its research increased the viral growth of a pathogen by tenfold.
Fauci under fire for ‘puppy experiments that saw beagles locked in cage with hungry sandflies that would eat them ALIVE’ DR Anthony Fauci is under fire for allegedly funding experiments where beagle puppies were locked in cages with hungry sandflies that would eat them alive. The non-profit organization White Coat Waste Project has accused the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of funding a project that had beagles infected with disease-causing parasites in order to test an experimental drug. The Hill reports that a bipartisan group of 24 House Representatives has written a letter demanding that Fauci answer to the claims by the nonprofit. The organization claims that as many as 44 beagle puppies were used as part of the cruel experiment in a Tunisia laboratory. Some of the dogs allegedly had their vocal cords removed to muzzle their barking. “Our investigators show that Fauci’s NIH division shipped part of a $375,800 grant to a lab in Tunisia to drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sandflies so that the insects could eat them alive,” White Coat Waste told The Hill. “They also locked beagles alone in cages in the desert overnight for nine consecutive nights to use them as bait to attract infectious sand flies, they added.
‘We will not comply!’: NYC workers protest vax mandate with march across Brooklyn Bridge City workers took to the streets Monday to protest Mayor Bill de Blasio’s vaccine mandate for the entire municipal workforce. At least 20 people were arrested during the protest, a police source said. Days after the mayor announced that all government employees except for jail staff will need to receive a vaccine shot by Friday or be placed on unpaid leave, about 5,000 incensed demonstrators marched over the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan. Some protesters wore NYPD and FDNY shirts, and several hoisted Gadsden “Don’t Tread on Me” flags, while others took to the extreme of wearing yellow stars of David to compare the inoculation requirement to Nazi Germany’s persecution of Jews. “Now, [after] working after countless of emergencies — Hurricane Sandy, the snowstorms … I am under threat. We are under threat of losing our livelihood for simply retaining the choice of protecting our bodies,” fumed firefighter Sofia Medina after the crowd reached City Hall. “Why now are we being bribed and coerced to take a medication. … We are not now nor have ever been a public health threat.” “Leave us alone and let us work,” she said to de Blasio. “Get out of the way for those of us who want to work and show up on time.”
CDC director: U.S. may change definition of “fully vaccinated” as boosters roll out Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Friday the U.S. “may need to update” its definition for what it means to have full vaccination against COVID. The big picture: The CDC and the FDA have officially approved boosters with every authorized vaccine in the U.S. for people who meet specific requirements. Walensky explained that since not everyone is eligible for a booster, the definition has not been changed “yet.” Currently, the CDC’s definition is the following: “Fully vaccinated persons are those who are ≥14 days post-completion of the primary series of an FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccine.” What they’re saying: “We have not yet changed the definition of ‘fully vaccinated.’ We will continue to look at this. We may need to update our definition of ‘fully vaccinated’ in the future,” Walensky said during a press briefing. She also encouraged those eligible to get boosters: “If you’re eligible for a booster, go ahead and get your booster,” she said.
Children should continue wearing masks in school regardless of vax status, CDC says The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will continue recommending children wear masks in school going into the winter months even if COVID-19 vaccines are approved for more school-age children, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky announced Wednesday. The announcement comes as the Biden administration prepares to ramp up vaccination efforts for children ages 5 to 11, pending approval and guidance from the FDA and the CDC expected later this month. “After we have authorization from FDA and recommendations from CDC, we will be working to scale up pediatric vaccination. That said, it will take some time. And as I just noted, as we head into these winter months, we know we cannot be complacent,” Dr. Walensky said Wednesday. Dr. Monica Gandhi, an infectious disease expert at the University of California, San Francisco, says she is “surprised” at Walensky’s announcement, and believes each school district should make decisions on masking based on local metrics like vaccination and transmission rates. “The entire point of the vaccines is to get back to normal, and the CDC this morning really has not been messaging confidence in these vaccines,” Dr. Gandhi said in a phone interview. To date, millions of adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 have received the shot. There has been controversy about giving the vaccination to even younger children, since they are statistically less likely to become seriously ill if they catch COVID-19 compared to adults.
Is there a constitutional right to food? Mainers to decide Depending on whom you ask, Maine’s proposed “right to food” constitutional amendment would simply put people in charge of how and what they eat — or would endanger animals and food supplies, and turn urban neighborhoods into cattle pastures. For supporters, the language is short and to the point, ensuring the right to grow vegetables and raise livestock in an era when corporatization threatens local ownership of the food supply, a constitutional experiment that has never been tried in any state. For opponents and skeptics, it’s deceptively vague, representing a threat to food safety and animal welfare, and could embolden residents to raise cows in their backyards in cities like Portland and Bangor. In the Nov. 2 election, voters will be asked if they favor an amendment to the Maine Constitution “to declare that all individuals have a natural, inherent and unalienable right to grow, raise, harvest, produce and consume the food of their own choosing for their own nourishment, sustenance, bodily health and well-being.” “Many of them have no symptoms,” said an Oct. 7 research article published by Harvard Health Publishing, a publishing arm of the medical school at the well-known university. “Those that do get sick tend to experience milder symptoms such as low-grade fever, fatigue, and cough.” The FDA said in September that it was “eager to see COVID-19 vaccines available for young children.” The agency also said it would “Follow The Science On COVID-19 Vaccines For Young Children,” which according to the FDA, is primarily clinical trials and analysis from the vaccine manufacturers themselves.
Thousands of workers are opting to get fired, rather than take the vaccine For 33 years, Karl Bohnak worked at his dream job delivering weather forecasts on TV for what he considers one of the most challenging but beautiful spots in the United States — Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. He became so popular that “That’s what Karl says!” became a slogan at his station in the 1990s and even inspired a song. But Bohnak’s time as chief meteorologist for news station TV6 came to an abrupt end last month. He was fired after refusing to comply with the vaccine mandate imposed by his station’s corporate owner, Gray Television. “I just did not want to take the shot,” says Bohnak, who is 68. “I felt it was my right as a human being and a citizen of the U.S. to decide what I put in my body.” Across the country, employers are firing workers for refusing to comply with vaccine mandates. Some people are opting to quit their jobs rather than take the shot. These workers represent only a tiny fraction of overall employees, not even 1% in some workplaces. But it can add up to thousands of people in many states.
As some police fight vaccine rules, DeSantis says Florida will pay them $5,000 to relocate: ‘We’ll treat you better’ Police officers across the country were among the first to become eligible to receive the coronavirus vaccine, but some are still declining the shots, leaving them clashing with city leaders as immunization mandates go into effect. In Chicago, days before police officers were due to report their vaccination status following a citywide mandate, the head of its police union urged officers to ignore the deadline and “hold the line.” Thousands of Los Angeles Police Department employees say they’ll seek vaccine exemptions after police officials filed a federal lawsuit against the city over vaccination and mask mandates. At least 150 officers, the Massachusetts police union recently reported, have resigned or submitted paperwork to do so over that state’s immunization requirements. And last week, the president of New York City’s largest police union said it plans to sue Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio for requiring all city employees to get their first vaccine doses before Nov. 1. But there is one state willing to take in unvaccinated law enforcement personnel who are terminated if they choose not to get immunized: Florida. On Sunday, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis announced plans to offer unvaccinated officers $5,000 bonuses to relocate to his state and join the police force. “We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement, because we do have needs in our police and our sheriff’s departments,” DeSantis said during an interview on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo. DeSantis, who told Bartiromo he hopes to sign such a bill in the next legislative session, urged officers in New York, Minneapolis and Seattle to relocate to Florida if their departments do not offer accommodations to those declining the coronavirus vaccine.
Questions of The Day!
Hello my radio/Brighteon TV boyfriends!
You may have answered this before, but in lieu of Innate Response’s GTF Chromium not being available anymore (even through Choose to be Healthy), what would you suggest as a comparable alternative? I understand and have experienced it’s value to the health of my family and I, and don’t want to have to stop taking it.
Thank you for being such a beacon of health.
We know that viruses are not contagious, nor exist unless we are talking about destroyed cell debris or something. So how do we know the symptoms attributed to covid are caused by a bioweapon vs wearing masks and the common failure to crack windows during lockdowns? Is covid actually nanotech or biotech that powers through the body’s numerous defense barriers, or an upgrade in the telecommunications in the direction of 5G, or chemical agents, or microwaving the population, or what? Also, do we know yet if unvaxers get proximity symptoms from vaxers?
Comment of The Day!
Hi there, this is Valeri your happy retired PA-C! You had a caller who asked about the aspiration of the syringe when giving an intramuscular injection. She is absolutely correct that it should always be aspirated prior to depressing the injection. When I have watched most of these videos I do notice some people doing the “two-handed method” (this is where you hold the syringe with one hand and pull on the plunger with the other). I, however, was taught a one-handed method that can be done with the newer syringes that have a spring in them to self retract the needle after the plunger is completely depressed. Some may miss this method when watching. This can be done with one of the fingers holding the syringe. I would agree with your caller completely that I have noticed some of the videos don’t do either which makes me cringe, I imagine like some people do when they hear the word “moist”.
Fun fact for Super Don! You should aspirate not only to ensure you aren’t depressing in a vein, which is rare in the shoulder but also to ensure you aren’t depressing into the joint capsule which as you can imagine has terrible side effects.
