Tuesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
From Boeing to Mercedes, a U.S. worker rebellion swells over vaccine mandates In Wichita, Kansas, nearly half of the roughly 10,000 employees at aircraft companies Textron Inc and Spirit AeroSystems remain unvaccinated against COVID-19, risking their jobs in defiance of a federal mandate, according to a union official. “We’re going to lose a lot of employees over this,” said Cornell Adams, head of the local Machinists union district. Many workers did not object to the vaccines as such, he said, but were staunchly opposed to what they see as government meddling in personal health decisions. The union district has hired a Texas-based lawyer to assist employees and prepare potential lawsuits against the companies should requests for medical or religious exemptions to vaccination be denied. A life-long Democrat, Adams said he would no longer vote for the party. “They’ll never get another vote from me and I’m telling the workers here the same thing.” The clock is ticking for companies that want to continue gaining federal contracts under an executive order by Democratic President Joe Biden, which requires all contractor employees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Dec. 8. That means federal contract workers need to have received their last COVID-19 shot at least two weeks before the deadline to gain maximum protection, according to U.S. government guidance.
More than 2,000 New York City firefighters out sick as vaccine mandate takes effect Roughly 2,300 members of the New York City Fire Department claimed they were sick and didn’t show up to work on Monday as the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for municipal workers went into effect. All city workers were required to have received at least one dose of the vaccine by October 29. City leaders suspect many of those who didn’t roll up their sleeves feigned illness to avoid being disciplined for failing to comply with the health requirement. Roughly 9,000 municipal workers were put on unpaid leave Monday for failing to meet the deadline and comply with the COVID-19 mandate, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said. FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said on Monday that firefighters had plenty of time to get vaccinated, and he implored those who have yet to get jabbed to get their shots so they can return to work. Normally, on any given day fewer than 1,000 department member would be out sick, he said. The FDNY employs about 11,000 uniformed workers. De Blasio also said he believes that many of the 2,300 firefighters who called in sick were pretending to be ill and violating oaths they took to serve the public.
Judge stays vaccine deadline for police unions, but leaves testing, reporting requirements in place A Cook County judge on Monday effectively sent city attorneys and the Chicago Police Department’s labor unions back to the bargaining table to resolve a dispute over the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate — but also told the city it can’t require officers to get vaccinated by year’s end. Those unions had sought to stop the city from enforcing its order requiring all city workers to share their vaccination status on an online portal and submit to twice-weekly testing if they are not fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. The case “presents two competing public interests, but one interest need not be scuttled in favor of another,” Judge Raymond Mitchell wrote in his ruling. “The City’s public health objective and the police union’s desire to pursue their grievances are not wholly irreconcilable.” Mitchell, who heard arguments in the case last week by attorneys for the Fraternal Order of Police and the city, left intact the requirement that CPD officers report their vaccine status and the city’s current policy requiring multiple weekly tests for unvaccinated officers. But Mitchell’s order does stay the Dec. 31 deadline for all officers to be vaccinated, urging the city and union to pursue arbitration. “The reporting obligation itself is a minimal intrusion,” Mitchell wrote, “particularly considering that police officers already are obligated to provide medical information to their employer.”
Some unvaccinated Australians won’t be able to browse in the shops until 2023. That’s a worry Unvaccinated Victorians have a grace period of about three weeks to go on a shopping spree before they’re no longer permitted to enter non-essential retail from November 24, according to the state’s roadmap out of restrictions. The roadmap says all retail is now open to everyone after Victoria hit the 80% double-dose milestone last week. However, when it hits the 90% milestone, those who aren’t yet vaccinated won’t be allowed into non-essential retail, and stores will be responsible for policing this. Premier Daniel Andrews warned unvaccinated Victorians could continue to be locked out “for the entirety of 2022”. By contrast, New South Wales is set to allow non-essential retail for unvaccinated people from December 1. Ethically, the situation in Victoria is a problem, especially when the state’s vaccination rates are so high. There’s little doubt vaccination against COVID is a proportionate and morally good thing to do. The most important reason for this is the vaccines have proven effective in reducing severe illness and death.
Diet-related diseases pose a major risk for Covid-19. But the U.S. overlooks them The same week British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was admitted to intensive care for Covid-19, two studies came out identifying obesity as a significant risk factor for serious illness and death. It was April 2020, and doctors were scrambling to understand why coronavirus gave some people mild symptoms and left others so sick they were gasping for air. After Johnson recovered, he became vocal about the role he believed his obesity had played in his brush with the virus: “When I went into ICU, when I was really ill … I was way overweight,” he said. That summer, Johnson, a conservative who in the past has colorfully railed against “the continuing creep of the nanny state,” launched a new governmentwide obesity strategy, complete with a ban on junk food advertising on TV before 9 p.m., new mandates to label calories in restaurants and a requirement that healthier products be stocked near checkout lines. The prime minister began jogging daily and urged the public to adopt healthier habits. Other countries, too, have ramped up action as officials begin to recognize diet-related diseases such as obesity, hypertension and diabetes have made their citizens much more vulnerable during the pandemic. Some states in Mexico recently went as far as banning junk food sales to children — on top of the country’s existing taxes on sugary drinks and fast food. Chile was already deep in its own crackdown on unhealthy products, having imposed the first mandatory, national warning labels for foods with high levels of salt, sugar and fat along with a ban on marketing such foods to kids.
Questions of The Day!
Hi Robert and Super Don, what can I tell people who say that because of previous knowledge or testing on corona viruses is why the vaccines didn’t need to have the long term studies?
Hello RSB and Super D! I have a friend who struggles with fibromyalgia. I’ve been listening to your show for a long time and I don’t know that I’ve heard you speak about it, or of any remedies and or products that you promote on your site would help her. if you have I missed it. I would be interested in hearing what you might have to offer. Thank you!
Hey RSB & Super Don! As always you guys rock! I watched some of the TTAC live event and it was fabulous!
Quick question, in looking up natural remedies to help my Mother in Law with trigeminal neuralgia, I came across one suggesting Silver + pharmaceutical grade DMSO applied topically. I have the Sovereign Silver that she could use, and I’m assuming she could take that internally as well. As for the DMSO, what are your thoughts on that, and if you were going to use it, where would you get it?
Also, where do you get your magnesium supplement?
Thank you as always for the info!
I went to TTAC and we purchased Cardio Miracle and the Copper. Can these be taken safely for someone with a transplant that is on immune suppressing drugs? Thank you, Susan
Comment of The Day!
Hi Robert and Super Don,
I’m a regular listener of the show and really enjoy all the amazing guests you have on.
I don’t know if you’ve heard about Robert F Kennedy Jr’s call to action. He is asking everyone who is apposed to the lockdowns, masks, injections, and passports to join together and protest on Nov 3 2021.
You can find out more information on childrenshealthdefense.org. I hope you will help to spread the word.
Peace Love and Hippie Beads – Denise
Nov. 3: Join the ‘Worldwide Walkout,’ a Global Protest Against Government Overreach Children’s Health Defense (CHD) on Nov. 3 will join organizations and individuals in “Worldwide Walkout” by calling in sick or taking a personal day to protest the unprecedented loss of freedom that has occurred the world over since the COVID pandemic began. Parents will also pull their children out of school for the day to protest the many restraints that have applied directly to children. “No government in history has ever surrendered power in the absence of a demand,” said Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., CHD chairman and chief legal counsel. “We need to tell these governments and their friends in the technocracy, the Silicon Valley billionaire boys club, the mainstream media and the pharmaceutical industry that we will no longer tolerate their trampling of citizens’ rights.” Emboldened by reports of a recent walkout of Southwest employees — which led the airline’s management to drop plans to put unvaccinated employees on unpaid leave — nurses, doctors, teachers, police officers, firefighters and other workers are expected to participate in the protest.

Case study: Can CBD oil shrink lung cancer tumors? Cannabinoids are chemical compounds presentTrusted Source in the Cannabis sativa (C. sativa) plant. Some people use cannabis therapeutically to treat seizures, pain, inflammation, spasms, and anxiety. CBD and delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two major cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant. However, CBD does not produce a euphoric feeling, or “high,” that people associate with cannabis use. CBD oil is a concentrated extract derived from cannabis leaves or flowers dissolved in a consumable oil, such as olive, hemp, or sunflower oil. There are different types of CBD oil containing various concentrations of cannabinoids. CBD isolates contain CBD alone. Full-spectrum CBD products contain compounds from all parts of the C. sativa plant, with less than 0.3% THC. Broad-spectrum CBD products include most of the same compounds as full-spectrum ones but only trace amounts of THC. Full- and broad-spectrum products may produce greater clinical effects than CBD isolates due to the entourage effect — the combination of cannabinoids has a more pronounced impact than individual ones. Cannabinoids interact with the body’s internal cannabinoid system, which experts call endocannabinoid system.
Alzheimer’s Disease & the Endocannabinoid System Many parallels exist between cannabis and psychedelics. Among them are the diverse therapeutic effects for which both classes of drugs are now being investigated, from fighting pain and inflammation to aiding treatment of some psychiatric disorders. Also on the list: Alzheimer’s Disease, the most common neurodegenerative disease with as many as 6.2 million Americans living with the condition. (The next most prevalent is Parkinson’s Disease at 1.2 million.) On the psychedelic front, a review article published last year in the journal Frontiers in Synaptic Neuroscience makes a strong case for LSD and psilocybin as potential treatments for this progressively disabling condition. A study now underway at Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Psychedelic and Consciousness Research and another published in 2019 by psychedelic medicine company Eleusis signal serious interest in Alzheimer’s among the field’s heavy hitters. And in the world of cannabis science, the plant has been studied as a potential treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease since at least the turn of the century. Today interest in the subject is higher than ever. The scientific publisher Frontiers recently issued a call for papers on “targeting the endocannabinoidiome in neurodegenerative disorders,” recognizing the subject as a “hot research area.” (The term “endocannabinoidome” refers to the expanded endocannabinoid system, including additional mediators, enzymes, and molecular targets.) In September 2021 alone, three papers appeared in the scientific literature summarizing much of what’s known about Alzheimer’s Disease and the endocannabinoid system.
