Maxine Waters snaps at Jim Jordan as COVID hearing with Fauci erupts into shouting match: ‘Shut your mouth’ The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus held a hearing Thursday titled, “Reaching the Light at the End of the Tunnel: Ending COVID-19,” but it erupted into shouting match when Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, pressed Dr. Anthony Fauci on when that end might become a reality in terms of restrictions being lifted. Jordan got right to the point, noting that Fauci had recently written that it is not yet the time to cease taking precautionary measures such as social distancing, avoiding gatherings, and wearing face masks. “When is the time?” Jordan asked. “When do Americans get their freedom back?” “When we get the level of infection in this country low enough that it is not a really high threat,” Fauci said. Jordan continued to ask for specifics as far as what level would be deemed low enough. “What is low enough? Give me a number … what metrics, what measures, what has to happen before Americans get their freedoms?” he asked. Fauci replied that his message was to make sure as many Americans as possible get vaccinated quickly “to get the level of infection in this country low that it is no longer a threat.” “That is when,” he answered. Jordan, not satisfied with the response, asked Fauci what determines when that level is reached. “What outcome do we have to reach before Americans get their liberty and freedoms back?” he asked.
Is The American ‘Vaccine Passport’ Officially Dead?…For Now A centralized system to track the vaccinated by digitally identifying individuals based on whether they’ve taken an experimental product from a pharmaceutical company was a bad idea from the start. Far from benevolent, the primary stakeholders establishing a vaccine passport already had a dismal track record in the public eye when it comes to trustworthiness, fairness, freedoms and the law. Centralizing societal power in the hands of a Big Pharma/Big Tech/Big Government triumvirate would have likely turned out to be a historically foolish misstep for America and humanity. As states began in rapid succession to fight vaccine tracking and passports using executive orders and legislative means, the White House saw the writing on the wall and hit eject…fast. “The government is not now, nor will we be supporting a system that requires Americans to carry a credential. There will be no federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters at a briefing. Embattled Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York were left hanging in the wind after implementing their vaccine passport system, before the ‘Great Reject’ began happening in other states and then culminating with the White House exiting the idea. Perhaps not fully trusting the Biden administration at its word, Republicans proposed a bill in the House of Representatives called the ‘No Vaccine Passport Act.’ Can’t get more obvious than that. The Washington Times writes, “If passed as written, the bill would prevent the federal government from issuing paperwork that private businesses could then check to confirm whether or not a potential customer has been vaccinated.” “Additionally, the bill would effectively ban members of Congress, such as its sponsors, from having to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to access the U.S. Capitol and adjacent office buildings.” How and why did the government efforts to force the vaccine passport system fail so fast and miserably?
ARE THE SYSTEMS MONITORING VACCINE SAFETY ACCURATELY REPORTING ISSUES? The first-ever mRNA vaccines were rushed to trial and authorized under emergency use authorization (EUA). The public was assured a ‘robust’ safety net would be set in place to detect adverse reactions. Now that the shots from Pfizer, Moderna and J&J have been unleashed upon the public, we are learning the truth about the largest medical experiment in human history. The New York Times spotlighted the FDA’s struggle to get safety monitoring systems running. According to numerous federal health officials speaking to NY Times, the much-touted system the government designed to monitor any dangerous reactions won’t be capable of analyzing safety data for weeks. Or maybe months: “F.D.A. officials acknowledged that a promised monitoring system, known as BEST, is still in its developmental stages. They expect it to start analyzing vaccine safety data sometime soon — but likely not until after the Biden administration reaches its goal of vaccinating 100 million people.” On March 12, the U.S. boasted it had topped 100 million Covid-19 vaccine doses administered. News from FDA officials about a fully functional monitoring system was absent. It was unknown if the “patchwork of programs” that were reportedly “hampered by limited size and gaps in data collection” are still experiencing issues. For those paying attention, the NY Times story wasn’t the first admission of vaccine safety reporting failures and shortcomings.
Comment of The Day!
I heard you speaking about coffee quality, and I wanted to remind you that coffee is closely related to politics and economics as it is one of the top traded commodities period. For this reason most people drink cheap poor quality coffee as that is the nature of the race to the bottom “capitalism”. However some institutions have emerged around ethical trade and I hope your audience is aware of the different types of certifications. Such as fair for life, equal exchange, or the tricky manipulations fair trade america pulled when it divided with fair trade international. Direct trade is usually better than no certificate but is not guaranteed to be ethical. There is a lot of green washing in the coffee and chocolate industry so just like before you buy you look for the non-gmo label on certain foods please look to see if the “kumbaya” package label has any real ethical certifications on them. For instance you may find that the coffee is grown in the shade, okay it can be grown by slaves in the shade, while its touted as great for the environment. The fair trade USA label fools many people as its intended. I can only imagine slave conditions getting worse after this world plandemic. These good agencies also certify sugar. Maybe this will motivate another listener into further research on the topic to expose the lies.
Special Guest James Lyons-Weiler
James “Jack” Lyons-Weiler, PhD is a Pittsburgh-area scientist, lecturer, and author, who has worked collaboratively for over twenty years on over one hundred research studies. After conducting research in Amazonia on prehistorical shifts in climate change, he focused on questions of how to best understand evolutionary biology, and to questions on the origins of biological diversity. Thanks to a Sloan Foundation fellowship, he was then able to shift focus to biomedical problems in cancer, diabetes, heart disease, infectious disease and many other aspects of clinical, biomedical and translational research. To provide a lasting monument to his mother, and to help others share advances in cancer research, he served as the Founding Editor-in-Chief of the open access, peer-reviewed research journal Cancer Informatics (Libertas Academica). An expert in study design, complex data analysis, genetics and systems biology, he has written three books: “Ebola: An Evolving Story” (2015), “Cures vs. Profits: Successes in Translational Research” (2016), and “The Environmental and Genetic Causes of Autism” (2016). For “Causes”, he reviewed over 3,000 research studies, and he cited >2,000 in the final product. He is currently CEO/Director of The Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge, which conducts research without profit motive to “Reduce Human Pain and Suffering Through Knowledge.” A regular featured guest on many radio shows focused on public health, Dr. Lyons-Weiler has reached millions with his defense of science as a way of knowing. He sees the public’s current widespread distrust in science as misplaced, because individual scientists and corporations should be held accountable when they mislead the public for profit motives, not the entire enterprise of science.
Relative Incidence of Office Visits and Cumulative Rates of Billed Diagnoses Along the Axis of Vaccination We performed a retrospective analysis spanning ten years of pediatric practice focused on patients with variable vaccination born into a practice, presenting a unique opportunity to study the effects of variable vaccination on outcomes. The average total incidence of billed office visits per outcome related to the outcomes were compared across groups (Relative Incidence of Office Visit (RIOV)). RIOV is shown to be more powerful than odds ratio of diagnoses. Full cohort, cumulative incidence analyses, matched for days of care, and matched for family history analyses were conducted across quantiles of vaccine uptake. Increased office visits related to many diagnoses were robust to days-of-care-matched analyses, family history, gender block, age block, and false discovery risk. Many outcomes had high RIOV odds ratios after matching for days-of-care (e.g., anemia (6.334), asthma (3.496), allergic rhinitis (6.479), and sinusitis (3.529), all significant under the Z-test). Developmental disorders were determined to be difficult to study due to extremely low prevalence in the practice, potentially attributable to high rates of vaccine cessation upon adverse events and family history of autoimmunity. Remarkably, zero of the 561 unvaccinated patients in the study had attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) compared to 0.063% of the (partially and fully) vaccinated. The implications of these results for the net public health effects of whole-population vaccination and with respect for informed consent on human health are compelling. Our results give agency to calls for research conducted by individuals who are independent of any funding sources related to the vaccine industry. While the low rates of developmental disorders prevented sufficiently powered hypothesis testing, it is notable that the overall rate of autism spectrum disorder (0.84%) in the cohort is half that of the US national rate (1.69%). The practice-wide rate of ADHD was roughly half of the national rate. The data indicate that unvaccinated children in the practice are not unhealthier than the vaccinated and indeed the overall results may indicate that the unvaccinated pediatric patients in this practice are healthier overall than the vaccinated.

Aluminum Is Intricately Associated With the Neuropathology of Familial Alzheimer’s Disease A new study demonstrates that aluminum is co-located with phosphorylated tau protein, present as tangles within neurons in the brains of early-onset or familial Alzheimer’s disease (AD). “The presence of these tangles is associated with neuronal cell death, and observations of aluminum in these tangles may highlight a role for aluminum in their formation,” explained lead investigator Matthew John Mold, PhD, Birchall Centre, Lennard-Jones Laboratories, Keele University, Staffordshire, UK. The earlier research highlighted widespread co-localization of aluminum and amyloid-β in brain tissue in familial AD. The researchers used a highly-selective method of immunolabelling in the current study, combined with aluminum-specific fluorescence microscopy. Phosphorylated tau in tangles co-located with aluminum in the brain tissue of the same cohort of Colombian donors with familial AD were identified. “It is of interest and perhaps significance with respect to aluminum’s role in AD that its unequivocal association with tau is not as easily recognizable as with amyloid-β. There are many more aggregates of aluminum with amyloid-β than with tau in these tissues and the latter are predominantly intracellular,” remarked co-author, Professor Christopher Exley.
Big Tech Is Censoring Science Because COVID-19 Panic Made Them Rich And Destroyed Their Competition On Monday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and three medical experts took a blowtorch to Google for banning from YouTube a video of them discussing COVID-19 science. “They say it’s misinformation even though Google and YouTube routinely host conspiracy theory videos ranging from the cause of the 9/11 attacks to the role that 5G networks play in causing COVID-19,” DeSantis said in a press conference. “You can pretty much find any misinformation under the sun on Google/YouTube.” He blasted them for acting as a “big tech council of censors in service of the ruling elite.” Last week, Google pulled a video of DeSantis on March 18 discussing COVID-19 with medical scientists Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Dr. Sunetra Gupta, Dr. Martin Kulldorff, and Dr. Scott Atlas, who all hail from elite institutions — Stanford University, Harvard University, and Oxford University. All but Gupta, who is based in the United Kingdom, also joined DeSantis’s April 12 press conference to respond to Google’s ban. “For science to work, you have to have an open exchange of ideas,” Bhattacharya said Monday. “If you’re going to make an argument that something is misinformation, you should provide an actual argument. You can’t just take it down and say, ‘Oh, it’s misinformation’ without actually giving a reason. And saying, ‘Look it disagrees with the CDC’ is not enough of a reason. Let’s hear the argument, let’s see the evidence that YouTube used to decide it was misinformation. Let’s have a debate. Science works best when we have an open debate.”
Metallomics Analysis for Assessment of Toxic Metal Burdens in Infants/Children and Their Mothers: Early Assessment and Intervention Are Essential Accumulation of toxic metals in infants/children is of serious concern worldwide, from the viewpoint of their harmful effects on the normal growth and development. This metallomics study investigates the extent of toxic metal burdens in infants/children and the relationship to those in their mothers for 77 child/mother pair subjects. For mercury, its geometric mean concentration in infants/children was of similar level to that in their mothers, and a high-significant close correlation was observed between infants/children and their mothers (β = 0.758, r = 0.539, p < 0.0001). A significant but less intimate mother/child relationship was observed for arsenic (β = 0.301, r = 0.433), lead (β = 0.444, r = 0.471) and aluminum (β = 0.379, r = 0.451). Remarkably, the burden levels of lead, cadmium and aluminum in infants/children were approximately three times higher than those in their mothers (p < 0.0001), and the burden levels in some individuals were several tens of times higher than in the mothers. In contrast, some essential metal levels such as zinc, magnesium and calcium in infants/children were significantly lower than those in their mothers, and 29 individuals (37.7%) in the child subjects were estimated to be zinc-deficient. In addition, significant inverse correlations were observed between zinc and lead (r = −0.267, p = 0.019), and magnesium and arsenic (r = −0.514, p < 0.0001). These findings suggest that these toxic metal burdens and essential metal deficiencies in infants/children are of serious concern for their neurodevelopment, indicating that the early assessment and intervention are crucial. It is expected that larger epidemiological and intervention studies will provide a reasonable and essential pathway for intervention of neurodevelopment disorders. View Full-Text
Vaccine Practice Payment Schedules Create Perverse Incentives for Unnecessary Medical Procedures – at What Cost to Patients? No published assessment of revenue variation associated with variance in pediatric vaccine uptake exists. Using data from patients in a pediatric practice that provides full-service with informed consent, we provide a detailed analysis of the financial realities of respecting informed consent and allowing parents to exercise their legal right to refuse some or all pediatric vaccines. The data from a 30-day period of billing were tracked and analyzed via superbills, noting vaccines that were ordered and those that were refused. Considering that other practice income covered all operating expenses; these numbers reflect actual profits (from vaccines given) and losses (from vaccines refused). Patients in the practice exhibited increased refusal of some or all vaccines over a period of approximately ten years. These real-world data show losses would exceed one million US dollars for a practice that bills out just over 3 million (gross revenue). With pediatric administrative overhead running 60–80%, it becomes clear that the financial incentives to vaccinate are now a matter of survival for pediatric practices.
