Monday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Protesters Across Europe Clash With Police Over COVID-19 Lockdowns Anger at restrictions imposed to contain the coronavirus pandemic swept into the streets of Europe on Saturday. German police used water cannons, pepper spray and clubs on protesters rallying over the coronavirus lockdown in the town of Kassel in central Germany where demonstrators numbered some 20,000. Protests against government measures to rein in the pandemic were also reported in Austria, Britain, Finland, Romania and Switzerland. Germany faces a surge of COVID-19 infections as a more contagious variant of the virus has spread. Experts say it highlights the need to accelerate vaccinations. But a botched vaccine rollout appears to have deepened distrust against the German government. The suspension of AstraZeneca vaccine was the latest hurdle in Germany’s efforts to vaccinate its population of 83 million. After a three-day pause in using AstraZeneca, Germany is now trying to right the course. “The motto is ‘vaccinate, vaccinate, vaccinate’,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel said after a meeting with the leaders of the country’s 16 states.
‘We Will Continue to Rage’: SWAT Breaks Up Massive Crowds Defying Curfew in Miami Beach SWAT teams moved in to disperse massive crowds of spring breakers who stayed out past an 8 p.m. curfew in Miami Beach on Saturday night, firing pepper balls and sparking a stampede as people fled. Sirens and shouting filled the air as police sought to force party-goers to leave the area. On Ocean Drive in South Beach, police rolled in about a half hour after curfew to find one huge street party. Different groups of young women had been dancing and twerking in front of giant bluetooth speaker boxes playing rap music. In front of the shuttered News Cafe on 9th and Ocean Drive, a very large crowd had gathered around four young men having a dance off, with the unmistakable odor of marijuana hanging in the air. A cop over a loudspeaker barked, “Everyone needs to leave the area. The curfew started at 8 p.m. You need to disperse.” The crowds would respond to the interruption by simply moving to the next block before resuming partying. At one point, a man began making it rain dollar bills, sending party goers scrambling for the cash. Then came the pop, pop, pop of the pepper balls being deployed, creating a panic and sending people scattering. Several people could be seen getting knocked over amid the mayhem. One young man fell to the ground, gripping a Hennessy bottle that he deftly kept from breaking.
Don’t Be Surprised When Vaccinated People Get Infected It’s hard to know when exactly the first cases appeared. But certainly by January’s end, a slow trickle of post-vaccination infections had begun in the United States. They arose in the West, making headlines in Oregon; they sprouted in the Midwest and the South. Some of the latest reports have come out of Florida, Texas, and Hawaii. These breakthrough cases—discovered in people more than two weeks after they received their final COVID-19 shot—will continue to grow in number, everywhere. And that’s absolutely no cause for concern. Breakthrough infections, which occur when fully vaccinated people are infected by the pathogen that their shots were designed to protect against, are an entirely expected part of any vaccination process. They’re the data points that keep vaccines from reaching 100 percent efficacy in trials; they’re simple proof that no inoculation is a perfect preventative. And so far, the ones found after COVID-19 vaccination seem to be unextraordinary. Since mid-December, when the rollout of the newly authorized vaccines began, nearly 40 million Americans have received the jabs they need for full immunization. A vanishingly small percentage of those people have gone on to test positive for the coronavirus. The post-shot sicknesses documented so far seem to be mostly mild, reaffirming the idea that inoculations are powerful weapons against serious disease, hospitalization, and death. This smattering of cases is a hazy portent of our future: Coronavirus infections will continue to occur, even as the masses join the ranks of the inoculated. The goal of vaccination isn’t eradication, but a détente in which humans and viruses coexist, with the risk of disease at a tolerable low.
CNN: ‘Don’t Be Alarmed’ if People Start Dying After Taking the Vaccine In an article on the COVID vaccine rollout, CNN says that Americans shouldn’t be alarmed if people start dying after taking the vaccine because “deaths may occur that won’t necessarily have anything to do with the vaccine.” The advisory appeared in an article titled ‘Why vaccinate our most frail? Odd vote out shows the dilemma’ in which Dr. Kelly Moore, associate director of the Immunization Action Coalition, cautions that vaccines don’t work as well on the frail and elderly compared to healthy people. “When shots begin to go into arms of residents, Moore said Americans need to understand that deaths may occur that won’t necessarily have anything to do with the vaccine,” states the report. “We would not at all be surprised to see, coincidentally, vaccination happening and then having someone pass away a short time after they receive a vaccine, not because it has anything to do with the vaccination but just because that’s the place where people at the end of their lives reside,” Moore said. She then said Americans shouldn’t be alarmed to see people dying a day or two after receiving the COVID vaccination. “One of the things we want to make sure people understand is that they should not be unnecessarily alarmed if there are reports, once we start vaccinating, of someone or multiple people dying within a day or two of their vaccination who are residents of a long-term care facility. That would be something we would expect, as a normal occurrence, because people die frequently in nursing homes.”
Questions of The Day!
Any Comments on effective ways to protect/defend against “shedding” by mRNA Vaccinated people who can become “Mass Producers” of “Super Strength Mutated Viruses?” Could it be dangerous to spend time in the same household with mRNA Vaccinated People in future?
Dr Eric R was on today talking about mRNA vaccines tested for SARS. I have done considerable research and cannot find any reference to mRNA vaccines being tested for SARS or MERS. In fact, all pubmed, lancet, etc, discuss only VV, DNA, PSV, LAV, and WIV.
Please publish a link to the study Dr. Rentz was referring to.
Response: Dear Ron,
There is a cross-conversation disconnect. When I talked about Cov-1 / SARS from 2002-03, I did not say mRNA vaccine attempts were unsuccessful rather that attempts at classical vaccine attempts were unsuccessful. The mRNA approach is new and is being used for the first time right now. It is great to know another is investigating; continue to dig on as much as you feasibly can! You are going to be needed. Sincerely, Dr. Eric Rentz
Thank you and Super Don! I really love your show and am so grateful for it. I have a question regarding the silver-aloe protocol. I don’t have any major issues with intestinal health or any known food allergies. I eat mostly organic foods, drink hydrogen water etc. Would you recommend a silver-aloe treatment anyway to enhance my intestinal health? Could this heal food allergies/sensitivities I may have that I’m not aware of?
(pronounced Pee-na 🙂)
Hi Robert and Super Don, What do you think about antibiotics? Are there more powerful natural alternatives? Do you have any great books you recommend on the topic?
Comment of The Day!
I have recently happened upon your show- what a gift! Wow! Two hours daily of insightful, intelligent and articulate conversation on topics near and dear to my heart. A dream come true! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Lockdown proponents assumed the worst when they had no evidence The “sunk cost fallacy” is a well-known source of distortion in human decision-making. A decision is made which has destructive implications. The limited benefits and immense collateral damage gradually become apparent. It is next to impossible for those involved in the decision to change their minds. No one wants to admit that it might all have been for nothing, even if that is the truth. They have invested too much in the decision to reverse out of the cul-de-sac. So they press on, more to avoid blame than to serve the public interest. This is what has happened to governments across Europe and to the dug-in body of specialists who advise them. Their recipe is simple: if lockdowns haven’t worked, there is nothing wrong with the concept. We just need more of them. What we really need is a fresh look at the evidence by people who are not committed to their own past positions. This is what the Health Advisory and Recovery Team (HART), a group of more than 40 highly qualified scientists, psychologists, statisticians and health practitioners have provided in an “Overview of the Evidence” published last week. It is addressed to non-specialists, but is scrupulously referenced to specialist research. It will not change the minds of ministers or their advisers. But it should provoke thought among the rest of us. We cannot contribute to the science, but we can at least understand it. Those who are unwilling to do even that much have no moral right to demand coercive measures against their fellow citizens.
They Said Things Would Be Much Worse in States without Lockdowns. They Were Wrong Like nearly all US states, Georgia imposed a stay-at-home order in March 2020 in response to demands from public health officials claiming a stay-at-home order would lessen total deaths from covid-19. But unlike most states, Georgia ended its stay-at-home order after only five weeks, and proceeded to lower other restrictions quickly. The legacy media responded with furious opposition. For example, an article in The Atlantic declared the end of Georgia’s lockdown to be an “experiment in human sacrifice.” The Guardian approvingly quoted one Georgian who insisted the end of the stay-at-home order was “reckless, premature and dangerous.” A few weeks later, other states began to end their stay-at-home orders and to end other restrictions as well. Florida was the largest among these states. Shortly thereafter the Daily Beast declared that the scaling back of restrictions in Georgia and Florida was “terrifyingly premature,” and quoted one expert who insisted, “If you lift the restriction too soon, a second wave will come, and the damage will be substantial both medically and economically. We don’t want to throw away the sacrifices we have made for weeks now.” All this hyperbole about human sacrifice and recklessness leads us to conclude that states which ended lockdowns quickly must have experienced far worse numbers of deaths from covid than states which maintained lockdowns longer. Indeed, when it came to lockdowns, we were told, the longer the better. Ideally, lockdowns shouldn’t be loosened up at all until everyone can be vaccinated.
Nearly Half of Frontline Healthcare Workers Not Vaccinated: Survey Despite being prioritized for COVID-19 vaccination, 48% of frontline healthcare workers have not yet gotten one or more vaccine doses, according to a survey conducted by the Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation February 11–March 7. The researchers conducted online or phone interviews with 1327 frontline healthcare workers, who were defined as anyone who had direct exposure to patients and their bodily fluids. Nearly seven in 10 (68%) of the workers responsible for diagnosis and treatment, including doctors and nurses, reported having received a COVID-19 vaccine. In contrast, 44% of workers who perform administrative duties and 37% of those who assist with patient care, such as those involved in bathing, eating, cleaning, exercising, and housekeeping, reported having been vaccinated. There were also big differences in the percentages of vaccinated respondents in various care settings. Sixty-six percent of workers in hospitals and 64% of those in hospital outpatient clinics said they’d been vaccinated, compared with 52% of those who work in doctors’ offices, 50% of workers in nursing home and assisted living facilities, and 26% of home health workers. Overall, 52% of the survey participants had received at least one dose of vaccine. The percentages of those vaccinated was higher among men than in women and higher among whites than among Blacks or Hispanics.
Question of The Day!
RSB and Super D, thank you so much for all of the hard work that you both do each and every day to try to keep us well informed about our health and what is going on in the world. I have been watching your show for many years now.
After watching your show with Dr. Rentz last Friday I watched the interview with Geert Vanden Bossche. These two interviews are certainly an eye opener.
My question is what type of physical manifestations would you expect to see in someone experiencing a cytokine storm. I appreciate the beginning looks into ways to help mitigate this response from Sunday’s show and I would like to hear more about this, or some guidance as to where to find more information.
Thanks again for all that you both do.
Simon & Schuster To Release Children’s Book About Dr. Fauci Publisher Simon & Schuster is set to release a children’s book about Dr. Anthony Fauci later this summer. Written by children’s book author Kate Messner and illustrated by Alexandra Bye, the book, titled “Dr. Fauci: How A Boy From Brooklyn Became America’s Doctor,” is scheduled for release June 29 and is currently available for pre-order. CNN host Brian Stelter shared the cover on Sunday morning’s “Reliable Sources,” a clip that Messner shared on Twitter. The publisher’s website describes the book as the “definitive picture book biography” of the White House coronavirus task force member and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who has become the sometimes controversial medical face of the U.S. government’s response to COVID-19. “Before he was Dr. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Anthony Fauci was a curious boy in Brooklyn, delivering prescriptions from his father’s pharmacy on his blue Schwinn bicycle,” the book’s “about” section reads. “His father and immigrant grandfather taught Anthony to ask questions, consider all the data, and never give up—and Anthony’s ability to stay curious and to communicate with people would serve him his entire life.”
