You Can Check In But Never Leave
He quickly deleted the tweet after he made it. Does anyone else remember seeing that?
Individuals, not technocrats, know best
Democrats seem to believe that there is a collective “We” that can be known and that the purpose of policy is to best serve that “We”.
I do not necessarily hate that impulse. Of course we should look out for each other.
The problem becomes how exactly should society determine (measure, figure out) the interests of this mythical “We”? For Democrats the answer is technocrats. And it just so happens that (surprise!) Democrats make up the well-educated bourgeois technocratic class in society. And so they have come to the conclusion that only Democrats know what is in the best interests of society. They use this partisan elitist paternalism to justify all manner of totalitarian policies including vaccine mandates, mask mandates, Show-Me-Your-Papers, and biofascism.
In the space of my lifetime, Democrats have gone from — “the working class knows best” (‘has a unique epistemic position that is more true’) to “the technocrats know best and must impose ‘The Good(TM)’ upon the deplorable (read: ‘dumb, racist, sexist, homophobic’) peasants.”
This new technocratic impulse in the Democratic Party has only existed for about 30 years (since Bill Clinton first ran for President in 1992). But it is proving to be a total disaster — for the party and the country.
It has a major epistemic problem because it’s really hard to determine the interests of another, it’s authoritarian because it imposes policy on people without their consent, and it completely ignores the ubiquitous problem of regulatory capture.
Making matters significantly worse, the predatory Pharma/Tech billionaires have figured out that they can ride this new impulse in the Democratic Party (and left parties generally in the developed world) and use these determined technocrats to create a digital fascist surveillance state that fulfills their desire for power, profit, and control — all in the name of looking out for the collective good.
So that’s what we see at Davos and the World Economic Forum — the billionaires and the global elite technocrats hobnobbing and scheming to remake the world to serve their interests which they believe are synonymous with the well-being of society (even though clearly they are not).
There is another way forward and it is a return to our roots
The American system of government is based on the notion that our collective well-being is best achieved through each individual pursuing his/her self-interest.
This is the central idea of Adam’s Smith’s The Wealth of Nations that was published in 1776 and had a profound influence on the framers of the U.S. Constitution.
One can take issue with that notion (indeed I have on many occasions), but it is the principle that underlies our entire economic and political system.
Self-interest is often interpreted as greed but it’s better understood as personal agency and responsibility.
It’s not a crazy idea. The person closest to a problem is usually the best person to solve the problem (he/she just has so much more detailed information than anyone else).
In the case of health it is preposterous to think that anyone outside of me can possibly know what’s best for me.
Health decisions involve a complicated mix of past history and experience; intuition; input from friends, family, and professionals; and a weighing of a wide range of possible risks and benefits — and these factors are unique to every individual.
Yet, everyone wants to be healthy and so of course each individual will be motivated to achieve the best result.
So pursuing self-interest when it comes to health is by definition the best path to achieving our collective well-being.
Any attempt to impose medical interventions from the outside is always tyrannical because it is replacing my self-interest in my own well-being with someone else's interests (and who knows what all goes into that — profit, ego, control, power, and sadism are among the possibilities — THAT’S the problem of capture).
Thinking “I know better than you what’s best for you” is at the root of so much evil in the world and it is the logical fallacy that leads technocrats toward fascism.
The American way can solve this pandemic and any other problem thrown at us.
It’s time to jettison the biofascist technocrats who are causing ruin and return to individuals using logic, common sense, and reason.
I would much rather have the 210,000,000 adults in America applying their best judgement to solve any problem than have 15 captured bureaucrats in Washington D.C. (or literally just two captured political appointees — Woodcock and Walensky) telling everyone what to do.
Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet from Truth for Health Foundation lays bare what's been happening inside America's hospital system over the last two years, bringing to mind the 1977 dystopian Eagles’ hit song, “Hotel California,” where people can check in, but they can never leave
Where once people could sign out of the hospital against medical advice (AMA), the Foundation's COVID Care Strategy Team has sometimes needed a show of force from police, attorneys, media and family members to liberate patients from a hospital
Hospitals have good reason to want to keep patients from leaving since the government has incentivized them to keep you there and watch you die, paying bonuses for every patient tested, admitted or treated with remdesivir for COVID, for every COVID patient on a ventilator and every COVID death
Human rights attorney Thomas Renz estimates each of these bonuses can potentially add up to $100,000 extra per COVID patient; this may be one more reason why hospitals are not administering safe and effective medications like ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine
Vliet cautions people not to get overwhelmed by fear, and instead take action; get prepared with a COVID survival kit and make an action plan if you must be admitted to the hospital
Patients Discover You Can Check in, but You Can Never Leave
Vliet has gathered a strong group of professionals who are as committed as she to lead Truth for Health Foundation. Each has a unique skill set to lend to the ongoing work of the organization. The board and advisers include names you may recognize:
Dr. Peter McCullough — Chief medical adviser, internist, cardiologist and epidemiologist; he has 46 peer-reviewed publications on SARS-CoV-2 and has been an outspoken leader in the medical response.
Michael Yeadon, Ph.D. — Chief science adviser; he holds a Ph.D. in respiratory pharmacology; his career in the biopharmaceutical industry spanned nearly 30 years leading projects seeking new treatments for asthma and COPD; until 2011 he was chief science officer in allergy and respiratory research worldwide with Pfizer U.K until the facility was closed.
Paul. E. Alexander, Ph.D. — Director of evidence-based medicine and research methodology; a former assistant professor at McMaster University in evidence-based medicine; COVID Pandemic adviser to WHO-PAHO (2020); and senior adviser to COVID pandemic policy for the U.S.
Dr. Richard Blumrick — Maternal-fetal medicine adviser; his fellowship research focused on the use of lipid coatings to increase transport across the placenta; he also has direct research experience on the risks of the lipid-coated gene therapy COVID shots for developing babies.
Vliet recounts some of the experiences of the foundation’s COVID care strategy team, such as learning that, much like the 1977 dystopian Eagles’ hit song “Hotel California”, people can check in to the hospital, but they can never leave…
"Our COVID care strategy team works diligently to assist patients and family members of patients who are trying to rescue their loved ones from hospitals where they are trapped, isolated, alone and [have] no access to their advocates, no access to family, priests, rabbis, pastors, and no access to effective treatment ... It will turn out to be one of the most shameful eras in American medicine in our history when all is exposed."
It was human rights attorney Thomas Renz who asked the foundation to set up a medical advisory team to help families rescue their loved ones from hospitals. This became the COVID Care Strategy Team. Vliet goes on to explain that for the team to successfully liberate patients from the hospital, it sometimes requires a show of force.
The team may have to organize the presence of local police, an attorney to confront hospital administrators, family members getting media on the hospital grounds and having ambulances on-site to hopefully get the patient released. All this in a country where the Constitution and Bill of Rights guarantee your right to freedom.
The Real Anthony Fauci
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. succinctly summarizes how Dr. Anthony Fauci wields his power to control and manipulate science across the globe
It’s Fauci’s job to conduct research on chronic diseases to figure out their etiology and environmental causes to protect public health, but instead he turned the NIAID into an incubator for pharmaceuticals
Fauci has a $7.6 billion annual budget that he uses to develop new drugs, which he then farms out to universities
Fauci’s control — in collusion with that of Bill Gates — has rendered the majority of global scientific research nothing more than pharmaceutical propaganda
Fauci shares drug patents with universities, sells them to drug companies, splits the patents with them, and walks those drugs through the FDA approval process, which he also controls; once approved, Fauci himself often profits
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. succinctly summarizes how Dr. Anthony Fauci wields his power to control and manipulate science in this riveting episode of The Jimmy Dore Show.1 Fauci has been painted as a hero throughout the pandemic, an image that is not only misleading but wildly inaccurate, as detailed in Kennedy’s best-selling book, “The Real Anthony Fauci.”
“I wrote the book because so many Americans were looking at Tony Fauci as this kind of savior,” Kennedy said. “… [T]he man on the white horse, or in the white lab coat, that would ride us out of this coronavirus crises but I knew from the beginning … that he does not do public health and has not done public health since the 1980s.”
Rather than looking out for public health, Fauci and his agency, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), prioritize pharmaceutical promotion. Kennedy refers to Fauci as the “leader of the pack” when it comes to those promoting pharmaceutical products, profiteering from Big Pharma and promoting their own personal power.
Public Health Plummeted During Fauci’s Reign
In 1984, when Fauci was appointed director of NIAID, 11.8% of Americans had chronic disease, but this has risen sharply since.4 Fauci doesn’t talk about this public health failure — at least not publicly — but as Kennedy noted, it was Fauci’s job to figure out why cases of autism, food allergies, ADHD, sleep disorders, juvenile diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and many other chronic and infectious diseases have skyrocketed.
It was Fauci’s job to conduct research on these diseases to figure out their etiology and environmental causes to protect public health, but instead he turned the NIAID into an incubator for pharmaceuticals. According to Kennedy:
“When Tony Fauci came in, 6% of American children had chronic disease. By 2006, 54% had it. We went from being the healthiest country in the world with the healthiest children to the sickest. Literally, we do not even qualify as a developed nation. We are 79th in the world, behind Nicaragua and Costa Rica in terms of our health outcomes.
And why did that happen? Well, the one figure who is more responsible for that than anybody else in the world is Tony Fauci. He is the reason we take more pharmaceutical drugs than any other nation in the world. Three times the average among western countries. We pay the highest prices and have the worst outcomes.”
Pfizer to Roll Out Omicron Shot in March
With the spread of Omicron, there's no longer any doubt the government mandates are irrational, legally indefensible and contrary to the public interest.
Omicron is rapidly overtaking other SARS-CoV-2 variants and currently accounts for 95% of all COVID cases in the U.S.
Research shows current COVID shots cease to provide any protection against Omicron 30 days’ post-injection, and at 90 days offers negative protection, actually making you more prone to Omicron infection
Every employee who enters the county and operates in "higher-risk" setting must be boosted or exempted. The County Executive is doing the same mandate for all County employees.
My phone has been lighting up recently. People in healthcare are livid about the latest mandate from Sara Cody, the public health officer of Santa Clara County where I live that goes into effect in 4 days from now.
Her mandate to them is simple: get boosted, get an approved exemption, or be fired. While her mandate only applies for “Higher-Risk Settings” this designation applies to just about every role that comes into contact with patients according to doctors I’ve spoken with.
Here are the documents that are of interest:
Cody’s order to get boosted by Jan 24, 2022
Waiver request form listing what people who want a waiver have to do at all times which includes being prohibited from using break rooms or cafeterias, and from eating indoors when others are present in the same airspace.
What her order will do is increase the chance that healthcare workers will be infected with COVID
Patient safety was never the priority
There are no studies anywhere in the world showing unvaccinated healthcare workers with no symptoms are a risk to patients. So there is no science backing her mandate. Just fear.
Dr. Sara Cody makes her mandates based on her belief system. And she has the 100% backing of the County Executive who is mandating something similar for all County employees.
The Santa Clara Board of Supervisors likely will do nothing.
My suggestion to healthcare workers (and everyone else) is do not take the shot and opt for a religious or medical exemption. Your health is not worth a job. Let them fire you if they don’t accept your exemption. And if you are a business owner, you may need to fire yourself. This means that many medical offices will all need to close and move their practice out of the county.
The county really doesn’t want you if you aren’t boosted.
The Board of Supervisors will continue to support Dr. Cody
Dr. Cody has clearly done a superb job in managing the pandemic. As you can see, her numbers are off-the-chart:
Following her advice to vaccinate people has made things worse than ever before. Why? Because the vaccine actually helps people to get infected after a brief efficacy period. That’s exactly what is happening.
Now she has new advice, not based on science, for us to follow. The results will be even worse. She keeps making the same mistake.
The Board of Supervisors is never going to figure out that the numbers are supposed to be going DOWN when you are doing your job, not up.
What a disaster. Thank you Sara Cody and the Santa Clara Board of Supervisors for your outstanding leadership in this area. You all are setting an example for how to make things a lot worse.
Meanwhile in the UK, they are doing the opposite
Boris Johnson just removed most of the Covid restrictions in the UK. No COVID passports, no mask mandates, no work restrictions.
Bravo. Someday, we’ll figure this out in America.
The ongoing mystery... You know what would put an end to the mystery? Transparency and good conduct.
I am trying to figure out if certain COVID-19 injectable product VAX LOTS are more toxic than others. There is a quality control document of the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BioNTech BNT162b2, 5’capped mRNA encoding full length SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein product (say that 5 times fast) that reports that there are ~1,545,000 doses per batch size. This is based on multiplying 2 numbers: the number of doses per vial (5) and the target drug batch size (309,000). I am 99% sure that when they write ‘batch’ they mean ‘VAX LOT’.
But, it is not clear, by their own admission, what variablity between batch sizes actually exists.
Let’s make the general assumption that we don’t know if the VAX LOTS are the same size and let’s also make the general assumption that we don’t know about potential content variability meaning that we don’t know if the vials contain the same stuff - including complete mRNA templates. This is a pretty safe assumption, also based on this quality control assessment. By the way, the mRNA variablity between vials is a huge separate stinking kettle of rotting fish. I will write something on this soon.
Let us define ‘toxicity’ as the rate of adverse event occurrance per number of doses. This is actually the crux of most misunderstandings on this subject I believe: in many instances, toxicity is being equated to a number when it should be equated to a rate.
Y'KNOW WHAT CONQUERS CORONAVIRUS?
Much has been written about Ivermectin, Hydroxchloroquine, Colloidal Silver, and even Benadryl with milk. Many say that any one of these substances will knock out an infection. You can get either Ivermectin or Benadryl at Walmart. Like HCQ, Benadryl and Ivermectin are super cheap; so cheap that Pharma might have made tens of billions fewer “vaxx” dollars if these therapeutics had been more widely used.
For prevention, many support the use of supplements such as Vitamin D, Zinc, Vitamin C, Quercetin, Niacin and Melatonin, Grapefruit Seed Extract and Reishi Mushroom Extract.
In addition, some advocate nasal sprays containing diluted Iodine, Hydrogen Peroxide or Xylitol.
Some say substances like Black Seed Oil, Oil of Oregano, Astragalus, Goldenseal and Turmeric and Garlic and probiotics like Acidophilus/Bifidus, Yogurt, Kefir, Sauerkraut and Kimchi also help. Like the therapeutics and supplements, these foods are eminently affordable.
