New York Supreme Court reinstates all employees fired for being unvaccinated, orders backpay A New York state Supreme Court ordered all New York City employees who were fired for not being vaccinated to be reinstated with back pay. The court found Monday that “being vaccinated does not prevent an individual from contracting or transmitting COVID-19.” New York City Mayor Eric Adams claimed earlier this year that his administration would not rehire employees who had been fired over their vaccination status. NYC fired roughly 1,700 employees for being unvaccinated earlier this year after the city adopted a vaccine mandate under former Mayor Bill de Blasio. Many of those fired were police officers and firefighters. FDNY-Uniformed Firefighters Association President Andrew Ansbro and FDNY-Uniformed Fire Officers Association President Lt. James McCarthy condemned Adams earlier this year after the mayor allowed an exception to the vaccine mandate for athletes and performers, even as firefighters were still being fired over their status. The pair called on the city to expand the exception to all New Yorkers. “We’re here to say that we support the revocation of the vaccine mandate that the mayor announced on Thursday,” McCarthy said. “We think that it should be extended as well. We support the revocation of the mandate for the athletes and performers that work in New York City. We think that the people that work for New York City should also have the mandate relocated for them.”
The Shame of the Covidians This, of course, stays between us” he said to his young coworker as they went their separate ways in the hotel parking lot. She, who was already feeling a bit queasy about what had transpired—it had not gone as she had hoped—quickly nodded her head as she clicked the fob to open the door of her car. Yes, she would keep it quiet. It was definitely better that way for him, but just as much, she thought, for herself as she had done what she had said she would never do: sleep with a more senior co-worker. She briefly rehearsed conjuring a new story about how it had come to pass, one that suggested he had forced it all upon her. But she knew it wasn’t true. She had always been an independent woman, nobody’s fool. And pretty honest with herself as well. In remembering and acknowledging her own agency in the process leading to the encounter she said to herself, “Yes, it’s definitely best that every hint of what occurred never go beyond this place and this moment.” And thus was born a Pact of Silence, one of millions established each day across the world. Shame is an incredibly powerful emotion, one that when imposed by parents or certain authority figures in very, very limited doses in the process of a child’s trajectory toward adulthood—which is to say, the process through which he or she begins to generate an autonomous sense of morality—can serve a certain educational purpose.

Sen. Scott Wiener Invites Us to Pumpkin Carving Drag Queen Event “In case you missed it, Senator Scott Wiener is hosting his Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest tomorrow, October 22!” Sen. Wiener’s email says. California Sen. Scott Wiener sent out an email Friday inviting me to his annual pumpkin carving event in San Francisco. And, there will be celebrity drag queen judges and awards for winning pumpkins! Isn’t pumpkin carving an activity that kids usually do? Is this like Drag Queen Story Hour? “Carve a pumpkin, get judged by drag queens…” the invitation says. “We’ll have pre-scooped pumpkins ready for you to carve, all you need to bring is your creativity and some Halloween spirit!” “And once you’re done, we’ll have celebrity drag queen judges Katya Smirnoff-Skyy, D’arcy Drollinger, and BeBe Sweetbriar there to pick the best designs and award prizes to our winners.” Yowza. I wonder magic potion what Katya Smirnoff-Skyy will be serving the little kiddies – Gimlet or Cosmo? The San Francisco Public Library is infamous for hosting “Early Learning Drag Queen Story Hour Persia,” as she “takes you on an enchanted tour that celebrates a rainbow of diversity, fun and the unique value and worth of each of us.” “For children and their families.”
What’s Behind “Lockdown Nostalgia”? In the early weeks of the pandemic, life seemed to come to a halt; life was more chaotic than ever. Sourdough starter bubbled away; morgue vans lined the street. It felt endless; it was only supposed to last a few weeks. By the end of the first month, two and a half thousand people were dying each day. Yet in what became a hallmark of the pandemic’s surreality, for some it was oddly peaceful. “There was a simplicity to life,” says Daniel Rotsztain, an urban geographer in Toronto. “All of a sudden, you have no choice but to be where you are.” Whatever early hope and optimism people harbored in March 2020, it soon disappeared. “Even by that first summer I was like, oh, things are different. ‘We’re all in this together’ crumbled,” says Rotsztain. “It was quite quick, actually, that the rug was pulled out from that pandemic innocence.” Rotsztain, who tweeted about “nostalgia for the innocence of lockdown” in April of this year, isn’t alone in pining for those early days. With coronavirus stubbornly lingering, “pandemic fatigue” has fueled widespread longing for the perceived simplicities, innocence, and sense of togetherness of the early days of COVID-19. Nostalgia has a bad reputation. At best, it’s seen as a guilty indulgence, and at worst, the refuge of people who would rather forget the worst of the past than live in the present. But in traumatic situations like the pandemic, it may actually come in handy, says Krystine Batcho, PhD, a professor of psychology at Le Moyne College who has spent decades researching nostalgia.
“Experts” now admit you will NEVER be “fully vaccinated” We at OffG – and many of our fellow alt media sites – have been reporting for over a year now that the Covid “vaccination” campaign will never end. (Article by Kit Knightly republished from Off-Guardian.org) In short, you will NEVER be “fully vaccinated”. That much was obvious once health institutions around the world started “updating” their definition of the term. Israel. America. Britain. New Zealand. Australia…they all did it, and it came as no surprise. From the beginning, the “pandemic” has been created, policed, enforced and perpetuated through nothing but rhetorical tricks and manipulative language. News names for old things. New definitions for old words. “Covid” has always been nothing but a pandemic of terminology. The fluid nature of “fully vaccinated” is just another example. It has already ballooned from “double-jabbed” to “boosted” and “double-boosted”, and with new “vaccines” expected for all the variants, it doesn’t look like any end is on the horizon. As I said, you’ll never really be “fully vaccinated”…and now they’re admitting it. In yet another attempt at control through language manipulation, there’s a push on to completely scrub the term “fully vaccinated” from the Covid discourse. Yesterday NBC News ran this piece, which headlines: It’s time to stop saying ‘fully vaccinated’ for Covid, experts say—here’s why Before going on to claim: If you still say “fully vaccinated” for Covid, it’s time to stop. With new boosters on the market and an ever-evolving virus, experts say the term no longer means being the most protected you can be. They point to two, far more appropriate alternatives to use in this current phase of the pandemic
Comment of The Day
Hi Robert and Super Don,
After the news was out that the ACIP had unanimously approved the mRNA shots for children, you expressed your anger and resentment (RSB Show 10-21-22). I completely agree with your views and totally resonate with your response.
This comment is about those MD’s, PhD’s and others who say, “I am not an anti-vaxxer, I am anti-stupid”.
I get the feeling that these people have recently woken up to the dangers of Covid vaccines. Prior to that, deeply influenced by the thorough brain-washing they were subjected to, they were firm believers in all vaccines. Even now they are of the opinion that vaccines like those used for polio, measles , DPT, etc. are generally good except for the occasional side effects. It is a pity that they are still believing the myth that vaccines are beneficial. The truth is, vaccines can only harm you and vaccine damage is a long list of conditions like allergy, autism, myocarditis, stroke and SADS.
Secondly, it is about the word “stupid”. The dictionary meaning is “having or showing a great lack of common sense”. People who meticulously plan to use bio-weapons that they call vaccines for the systematic destruction of humanity are evil, to say the least. All fifteen members of the ACIP voted ‘Yes’ for putting Covid vaccines in the childhood vaccination schedule. Are they all stupid? NO. They are criminals. They are crooks. They are murderers. They are pure evil.
Question of The Day!
Hi Robert and Don – you answered my question about the letters and numbers on homeopathic remedies, but how does one determine what dilution to purchase?
Also, can you elaborate on suggestions for tinnitus? Perhaps there is someone in the chat that may have ideas. Thanks.
Is Earth’s Most Important Resource Toxic? Health experts say we should drink at least 64 ounces of water daily to replenish our bodies and maintain good health. This makes sense, because our body is made up of about 50-60% water by weight, although the exact amount can vary depending on several factors. However, the importance of drinking enough water extends beyond simply avoiding dehydration. In fact, clean water can help detox our bodies and prevent disease, including cancer. Simply put, water is our body’s filtration system, helping to flush out toxins. Unfortunately, an estimated 70% to 80% of Americans are chronically dehydrated and miss out on the many powerful health benefits of water. Adequate fluid consumption has been associated with a lower risk of cancer formation in the bladder, colon, and breasts. An overview of multiple studies published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology shows that the more fluid a person consumes, the less likely it is that he or she will develop these potentially fatal cancers. For instance, concentrated urine and less frequent urination exposes the inner wall of the bladder to higher levels of toxins for a longer time, increasing the risk of bladder cancer. Similarly, water intake alone was seen to lower the risk of developing colon and colorectal cancer in both men and women in multiple studies. Based on the results of one animal study, the authors stated: “This suggests that increased water intake may have an important role in reducing colon cancer risk by decreasing bowel transit time, reducing the mucosal contact with carcinogens, and decreasing the concentration of carcinogens.” Another study established that drinking water is inversely and significantly associated with breast cancer risk. In other words, maintaining optimal hydration is an essential tool for lowering our chances of getting cancer. And while these results are very promising, we have to remember that these studies likely took place in controlled laboratory conditions in which the quality of drinking water was carefully monitored. What about us, the regular Joes and Janes? Is the water we drink and use just as safe and even beneficial for our health? As it turns out, it isn’t.
