Watch “Blockbuster! New Study Finds Half Covid Hospitalizations For Asymptomatic Or Mild Illness!” on YouTube

Posted by M. C. on September 15, 2021

The mainstream publication The Atlantic has written about a blockbuster new study undertaken by Harvard and Tufts Medical Schools along with the VA which found that the most important measure of covid intensity may be misleading: half of the “Covid” patients hospitalized were found to have no symptoms or mild symptoms. The implications – especially as hospitalizations are used to justify ever-more restrictive measures – are enormous. Also today: Fauci says no jab no flight and rebellion within the FDA over booster shots.

One of The Atlantic’s lucid moments.

Dr. Fauci warns Americans may face having booster shots INDEFINITELY and says fully-vaccinated ‘breakthrough’ infections could still cause long COVID: FDA approves third dose for those with weakened immune systems

  • Fauci said ‘there are a lot of factors’ that go into making decisions such as whether people will routinely have to get vaccinated against COVID-19
  • He said researchers have already started conducting studies giving boosters to people who have already been full vaccinated
  • Those studies have shown hopeful promise that future booster shots beyond a third jab may not be needed
  • But Fauci said it was too early to say whether people would have to have the shots regularly, as many do with the annual flu jab  
  • Fauci said ‘the only way’ the public health officials will become certain whether continued booster shots will be needed will be by conducting further studies

Just One More Shot, Please | The American Conservative

Posted by M. C. on August 21, 2021

Don’t be confused. The original vaccine still works, says the New York Times. This supplementary injection is merely necessary to boost the good the first two shots are already doing. Of course, that’s just what an addict would say, isn’t it? The next fix is necessary. Vital. Non-negotiable.

The corporate media is addicted to the pandemic

Carmel Richardson

I’m no expert, but I think I can tell an addict when I see one. By all the usual earmarks—erratic behavior, a different story every time you speak with them, and a trance-like fixation on the subject of their addiction—the corporate media is hooked on Covid-19.

Apparently, a double shot of the Covid-19 vaccine wasn’t enough to assuage their mania over a virus that is already an insignificant threat to most healthy people. When the Biden administration announced Wednesday it will roll out “booster shots” for the Covid vaccine in September, the media jumped to be the first in line for a fresh dose.

Don’t be confused. The original vaccine still works, says the New York Times. This supplementary injection is merely necessary to boost the good the first two shots are already doing. Of course, that’s just what an addict would say, isn’t it? The next fix is necessary. Vital. Non-negotiable.

The corporate media is a delicate creature. It gets a little cagey when you question it about its obsession—when you say things like, “I already have antibodies” or “why do I have to wear a mask if I’ve been vaccinated?” and “do I really need another shot?” It starts to sweat when it sees Covid-19 cases declining, is quick to insist this doesn’t mean the pandemic is over, and latches onto every viral variant the Greek alphabet has a letter for.

Experts have identified a phenomenon characteristic of an addict’s behavior: self-deception.

The American Addiction Centers writes:

Doublethink is a form of self-deception that involves the ability to believe and live contradictory beliefs. The term “doublethink” comes from George Orwell’s great novel, 1984. Simply put; doublethink is being able to tell deliberate lies while still believing them and forgetting any facts that are inconvenient. Doublethink isn’t just believing a contradiction (which never can be true) but having that contradiction drive actions and behavior. All of these tactics become necessary for living, according to Orwell.

How are these tactics necessary for living with an addiction? Firstly, they help to manufacture a reality in which one’s use is not disordered or addictive. Even if on some level a person believes she is becoming addicted, she can appeal to the always ready at hand belief that she is just fine.

We should pray for our brothers and sisters in their fight against this debilitating disease. They’ll be boosting the booster to their booster shot, with more stamps in their vaccine passports than their real ones, before they’ll accept the pandemic is done.
