Friday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
INSTEAD OF FDA’S REQUESTED 500 PAGES PER MONTH, COURT ORDERS FDA TO PRODUCE PFIZER COVID-19 DATA AT RATE OF 55,000 PAGES PER MONTH! On behalf of a client, my firm requested that the FDA produce all the data submitted by Pfizer to license its Covid-19 vaccine. The FDA asked the Court for permission to only be required to produce at a rate of 500 pages per month, which would have taken over 75 years to produce all the documents. I am pleased to report that a federal judge soundly rejected the FDA’s request and ordered the FDA to produce all the data at a clip of 55,000 pages per month! This is a great win for transparency and removes one of the strangleholds federal “health” authorities have had on the data needed for independent scientists to offer solutions and address serious issues with the current vaccine program – issues which include waning immunity, variants evading vaccine immunity, and, as the CDC has confirmed, that the vaccines do not prevent transmission. No person should ever be coerced to engage in an unwanted medical procedure. And while it is bad enough the government violated this basic liberty right by mandating the Covid-19 vaccine, the government also wanted to hide the data by waiting to fully produce what it relied upon to license this product until almost every American alive today is dead. That form of governance is destructive to liberty and antithetical to the openness required in a democratic society.

Afghanistan on brink of collapse with millions facing starvation When the U.S. military pulled out of Afghanistan in August, the Taliban immediately seized control and the international community acted quickly – freezing Afghan assets and foreign aid to pressure the Taliban to negotiate. To date, those negotiations haven’t happened. Today, 38 million Afghans find themselves facing one of the worst humanitarian crises on the planet with millions unable to pay for food or basic goods, putting half the country at risk of starvation this winter. “I’ve been with WFP for a long time, 20-plus years, and I’ve never seen a crisis unfold and escalate at the pace and scale that we are seeing,” Mary Ellen McGroarty told 60 Minutes correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi. McGroarty, director of the United Nations World Food Program in Afghanistan, said nearly 23 million people in the country are living in what the WFP calls “severe food insecurity.” “People don’t have jobs, they can’t access cash. You know, food prices are going up,” McGroarty said. “The currency is depreciating. Fuel prices are going up. So for us, as WFP and humanitarian agencies, we’re now really in a race against time.” McGroarty has had to personally negotiate with the Taliban in order to get food to those in need. “When you say you have to, you know, reach out to the Taliban and talk to them,” Alfonsi said to McGroarty, “how does that work as a woman?”
More Food Shortages After Omicron Hits Stores From U.S. to Australia Supermarkets in Australia are running out of groceries like it’s 2020. Two years ago, as lockdowns rippled across the world, panicked hoarders cleared Australian shop shelves of survival rations such as flour, lentils and — of course — toilet paper. This time it’s different. Local supermarkets are struggling to get their produce into stores because so many key staff are in isolation, either because they have the omicron Covid-19 strain or are close contacts of confirmed cases. It’s also an issue elsewhere — the highly contagious variant is disrupting U.S. food supply chains and will likely cause more shortages. In Australia, the supply pressures are most acute in New South Wales, the populous east coast state that includes Sydney. The state reported a record 38,625 new cases Friday. That’s up from daily numbers of fewer than 500 as recently as early December. The country’s biggest supermarket operator, Woolworths Group, said Thursday that more than 20% of employees at its distribution centers are off work because of Covid-19. In the stores, the virus has put at least 10% of staff out of action, Woolworths said. That’s made it tough for supermarkets to restock, and it’s sometimes hard to get hold of certain meats, bread, vegetables, fruit and herbs. Coles Group, Australia’s second-largest supermarket operator, this week imposed temporary two-pack buying limits on sausages, chicken thighs and breasts, and mince.
Local farm help supply schools with food School districts are reporting problems getting some of the foods they need to make meals for students. Cattail Organics farm has worked with schools through partnerships for years, but supply chain issues during the pandemic are showing schools the perks of buying locally grown foods. Kat Becker is the owner of Cattail Organics vegetable farm in Athens. Her farm supplies schools by selling lettuce and other vegetables. “We did have some school district who were outside of our reach, reach out to us when they reached really big crisis points in supply,” said Becker. Becker said she tends to work with school districts up front during the springtime to plan for the year. “There were some changes we saw during the pandemic. We saw some school districts that were using fresh products and sending those right to families on school buses,” said Becker. She said the federal government places strong bid requirements on certain supply systems for food service directors. “And as those have loosened, food service directors have been liberated to work with smaller farmers or to put more money into local food systems,” said Becker.
10 Lavender Benefits + How to Grow This Fragrant Friend at Home Growing lavender is fun and easy and offers a number of health and culinary benefits. Lavender is known for its versatility and numerous uses—especially when it comes to its oils, which are extracted from the flower of the plant through steam distillation. The flowers of the lavender plant have a soothing fragrance when they are fresh or dried, which is one of the many reasons why they are so popular among those who grow herbs. Lavender is a member of the mint family The calming scent of lavender makes it a regular ingredient in aromatherapy. Lavender oil combines beautifully with other herbs, such as cedarwood, pine, clary sage, geranium, and nutmeg. You’ll find lavender commonly used in many personal care products, including lotions, gels, and soaps. It is used in sweet and savory foods as well. In addition to the calming effect of its aroma, lavender plant benefits are especially abundant in its oil.
Homemade Natural Fertilizer—15 Simple and Inexpensive Options There was a time when people gardened because backyard produce was far better and cheaper than anything from the store. To tell the truth, it still is, or at least it still can be. The trick is knowing that, back in the day, people used their own compost and homemade fertilizer. Yet some are convinced that you have to spend a bundle of money to have a really nice, healthy garden. I think that this misconception grew out of the fact that most people have backyards that are filled with really poor/weak soil. The reasons for this are complicated—a subject for another day. Suffice it to say that if the soil is weak, your plants will also be weak. And so it follows that weak plants have poor production, leading to more time and money spent on a low quantity of low-quality vegetables. This means that you need to enrich your soil. Because most people are not making their own compost at home, they need to buy fertilizer. Plant fertilizers purchased from the local garden center often contain chemicals that may harm your plants and are not environmentally friendly. In addition, fertilizer can be a bit pricey, and this is most likely why the myth that home gardens are expensive continues. This is not necessarily true. You needn’t spend a bundle of money because, believe it or not, you are full of fertilizer!
DIY Potting Soil Recipe Using 3 Simple Ingredients Today you’ll learn how to create DIY potting soil using only 3 simple ingredients. I’ll also give you alternate ideas for homemade potting soil in case you don’t have those 3 ingredients readily available. First, you’ll need a place to work. I like to spread a tarp on the grass and use that as my mixing area, but you can work on any solid surface. A tarp is easy to roll back and forth to help you mix, but making homemade potting soil isn’t rocket science—and you can really do it anywhere. Fresh wood chips will eat up a lot of the nitrogen in your potting soil mix and can cause your plants to struggle. Rotten wood doesn’t cause that issue, plus it holds moisture and adds a loose and airy texture to the mix. As you know if you’ve read my popular book Compost Everything: The Good Guide to Extreme Composting, I don’t throw away or burn the logs and sticks that fall in my yard. Instead, I use them to feed the soil. Leaving a pile of brush and logs in a corner of your property to rot over time will give you a ready source of rotten wood for your DIY potting soil. If you haven’t started doing that yet, just go for a walk in the woods and get a nice sack of fluffy, crumbly wood and drag it home.
Special Guest Christopher Key
What would you do to protect your children from toxic and dangerous injections? What would you not do? What about masks? Would you be willing to stand up to authoritarians trying to limit your children’s ability to breathe freely? Christopher Key has owned a health club called Steel City Fitness, which specialized in health and wellness, and co-owned a company called SWAT. He also started a company called Health Management Systems that utilized a device that measures body fat. He has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated and he helped professional athletes and the public without drugs, chemicals, and surgery until the government came and seized everything he owned and shut him down. This happened seven years ago. He was recently fired from his job of six years for being a patriot and after standing against a tyrannical school board in Alabama. It was because of Key’s efforts that the mask mandate was lifted, and kids will not have to provide proof of inoculation to return to in-person learning in the fall. Since publicly announcing that victory and encouraging fellow Americans to fight against the unconstitutional mandates, he has been fired from his job by his ‘bully boss’. Rather than feeling sorry for himself, he has responded to a higher calling, and will be traveling the country to fight for YOUR KIDS!
Patriot Who Stood Against Tyrannical School Board, Forced End of Mask Mandate, Now FIRED FROM JOB!

Patriot Who Stood Against Tyrannical School Board, Now FIRED FROM JOB!
Patriot Who Stood Against Tyrannical School Board, Forced End Of Mask Mandate, Now Fired From Job Christopher Key is a Patriot who was fired from his job after standing against a tyrannical school board in Alabama. It was because of Key’s efforts that the mask mandate was lifted, and kids will not have to provide proof of inoculation to return to in-person learning in the fall. The children of Jefferson county will not have to wear masks or be vaccinated this coming school year. This shows what happens when you put God first and how powerful the pen is when we hold them all accountable. He also won at Auburn University, he stood down and they did not force them to wear masks,even though they told him they had every right to refuse him entry to his daughter’s graduation without a mask.This is what freedom looks like and shows how the power of the pen can change so many unlawful orders. On April 8, 2021, Whole Foods had Christopher arrested for trespassing, because he refused to wear a mask and answer their medical questions and allow them to take his temperature.
Here are three reasons why he abstains from wearing a mask:
1. It violates Alabama law to wear a mask in public.
2. It goes against my religious beliefs to wear a mask.
3. I have a medical condition that prevents me from wearing a mask.
We each have the right to breathe oxygen uninhibited. He will have his day in court.

CDC says staying ‘up to date’ on COVID-19 vaccination means getting booster shot The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in a Wednesday update that staying “up to date” on COVID-19 vaccinations means getting a booster shot. The agency said that people who are up to date with their vaccines are “well protected from serious illness or other health outcomes.” “CDC recommends that people remain up to date with their vaccines, which includes additional doses for individuals who are immunocompromised or booster doses at regular time points. Individuals who are moderately or severely immunocompromised should get an additional primary shot and a booster shot,” the agency said. According to CDC data, 206.8 million Americans are fully vaccinated against the disease and 72.3 million people have received a booster dose. Officials have urged all Americans who are eligible to get boosted amidst the spread of the omicron and delta variants of the coronavirus. Health authorities have said that people who are boosted have a greater level of protection against omicron – which now makes up more than 95% of new cases in the U.S. – than those who are not.
COVID vaccines may briefly change your menstrual cycle, but you should still get one A new scientific study shows that vaccination can cause changes to the timing of menstruation. But it also shows the effects are temporary, more akin to a sore arm than a serious adverse event. “I think it’s reassuring and also validating,” says Dr. Alison Edelman, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Ore. who led the study. The work appeared Thursday in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology. Edelman and other experts stress that individuals should get vaccinated, because the risks from COVID-19 remain high. Clinical trials for the COVID vaccines looked for side-effects like headaches or fever, but when it came to reproductive health, the main focus was on pregnancy, not menstruation. “The menstrual cycle is like the stepsister that gets ignored,” Edelman says. “It’s considered unimportant in the grand scheme of things, but it actually really is important to people day-to-day.” And many people did notice changes to their menstrual cycles. A survey conducted by anthropologists found numerous reports of unusually heavy flows and even breakthrough bleeding among some people who hadn’t menstruated in years.
Study: Household pesticide use harms infant motor development Ixel Hernandez-Castro grew up next to a dairy farm near Fresno, California, where she remembers a plane would fly by on weekends and spray the fields surrounding her family home with pesticides. “They’d finish spraying, and we’d run outside to play,” said Hernandez-Castro, MPH, a doctoral student in epidemiology in the department of population and public health sciences at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. “For kids, there’s a lot of touching the environment, rolling on the grass, eating while playing, so though I didn’t know it at the time, I was being exposed to these pesticides.” The experience motivated Hernandez-Castro to study the effects of household pesticide use on motor development in infants. Her research began as a capstone project for her master’s of public health degree, which she earned in 2020 at USC, and continued as she pursued her doctorate. Her findings, published recently in Paediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology, suggest that early post-natal household use of rodent and insect pesticides may harm infants’ gross motor development in early childhood. “It’s critical to understand the impacts of household pesticide use on infant motor development since household pesticide use may be a modifiable risk factor,” said Hernandez-Castro, who is first author of the study. “Developing safer alternatives for pest control could support healthier infant development.”
