  • Karl Friston: Up To 80% Not Even Susceptible To Covid-19

    Unherd ^ | 6-5-2020 | Freddie Sayers
    The influential professor's statistical observations could radically change how we lift lockdownJust one month ago, the idea that most people aren’t susceptible to Covid-19 — perhaps the overwhelming majority — was considered dangerous denialism. It was startling when Nobel-prize-winning scientist Michael Levitt argued in UnHerd at the start of May that the growth curves of the disease were never truly exponential, suggesting that some sort of “prior immunity” must be kicking in very early. Today, though, the presence of some level of prior resistance and immunity to Covid-19 is fast becoming accepted scientific fact. Results have just been published of...

    Peaceful protests are constitutionally protected and must be respected. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was correct when he taught us that nonviolent gatherings send a powerful message that change is possible. The American people are in agreement that the senseless killing of Floyd, who’s been described by his brother as a gentle giant, must be protested loudly, clearly – and peacefully. However, violent anarchists and America haters have upended the peaceful protests to wreak havoc on our cities from coast to coast and desecrate the memory of George Floyd. They call themselves Antifa, short for “anti-fascists,” but nothing could be further from the...
  • Suddenly, Public Health Officials Say Social Justice Matters More Than Social Distance: For months, health experts told Americans to stay home. Now, many are encouraging the public to join mass protests.

    For months, public health experts have urged Americans to take every precaution to stop the spread of Covid-19—stay at home, steer clear of friends and extended family, and absolutely avoid large gatherings. Now some of those experts are broadcasting a new message: It’s time to get out of the house and join the mass protests against racism. “We should always evaluate the risks and benefits of efforts to control the virus,” Jennifer Nuzzo, a Johns Hopkins epidemiologist, tweeted on Tuesday. “In this moment the public health risks of not protesting to demand an end to systemic racism greatly exceed the...

    If you’re not sick, everytime you put your mask on, the same masks worn by ANTIFA terrorists, you are allowing them to control you. From the middle of March until just about 9 days ago, there was one persistent and consistent message drilled into our heads around the clock – it’s not safe to go outside. COVID-19 was spreading faster than it could be contained, they said, and the only remedy was a total lockdown of the economy, and of the people. Breathless news updates from Bill Gates, CNN, the CDC, the WHO, Fauci and Birx made us to believe...

    Lancet corrupt study The Lancet paper on hcq bs beyond pale. The lead author from Harvard, the tax exempt brokerage masquerading as university. How much money has the Harvard endowment fund make on these crises? Curious, how much damage did the Harvard campus sustain during the riots? What state AG is going to step up and charge Harvard, Lancet, FDA, and their media spin bastards with manslaughter for all the poor at risk who could not get HCQ prescription?
  • VIDEO: Did Extreme TDS Cause Publication of Incredibly Flawed HCQ Study?

    VIDEO TDS is apparently such a powerful force that it seems to be able to cause a highly respected medical journal, The Lancet, to drop its usual professionalism and publish a horribly flawed study on hydroxychloroquine. See, President Donald Trump recommended the use of HCQ if prescribed by a doctor and that apparently was enough for some medical professionals to cast caution to the wind and produce a fraudulent study that seemed designed to prove that HCQ is not only supposedly ineffective but dangerous as well. Fortunately this fraud has now been exposed and clinical trials on HCQ have...

    A pair of front-line doctors in Italy battling COVID-19, which hit the nation hard, killing thousands, now say the coronavirus either “clinically no longer exists,” or is greatly weakened. “In reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy,” Alberto Zangrillo, the head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, said, according to Reuters.“The swabs that were performed over the last 10 days showed a viral load in quantitative terms that was absolutely infinitesimal compared to the ones carried out a month or two months ago,” he told RAI television.Matteo Bassetti, the director of the infectious diseases clinic of the...

    Sorry America. We hate to break it to you but you’ve been had. Those horrible projections made about the coronavirus, were wrong – way wrong. We’re not saying that the elderly were not at risk. We never did. If New York, New Jersey, Michigan and other Democrat led states would have protected their elderly in the same manner as Republican-led Florida, then you would never had seen the death tolls in those states that you did. By forcing coronavirus infected individuals into the elderly homes, the leaders of states like New York murdered the elderly in those institutions.What we are...

    Unlike with the reopen marches, where journalists gave us up to the minute “reports” on how protesters were not social distancing and/or not wearing masks, we have not been hearing the same “you’re gonna kill people, you selfish jerk!” lectures from Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media regarding those marching over the officer-involved death of George Floyd. Pharmacist Matt Dawson became so disgusted and frustrated over the hypocrisy and mixed messaging that he went on an epic rant on his Twitter feed Monday, calling out the inconsistencies of Democratic leaders and media figures who just a few days...

Murphy spokesman Mahen Gunaratna declined to comment, adding, “We’re not going to dignify anonymous allegations with a response.” NJ Advance Media knows the identity of three of the employees, who asked not to be named because of fears of retaliation.

    While he acknowledged that "the fight against COVID is largely won," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) vowed "to keep this City shutdown as long as I can. We mustn't overlook the greater threat posed by the possibility that Trump will be reelected. Averting such a possibility is my top priority. If that causes additional suffering in the short-run that's a price we have to be willing to pay." To bolster his strategy, the Mayor pointed to a just-released statement by Harvard professor Jason Furman that "a strong economic recovery would almost certainly lead to President Trump winning...

    NOQ Report ^ | June 1, 2020 | Ted Noel, MD
    ...Dr. Singer demonstrates how immunity spreads. Most people don’t get enough exposure to get sick. But even at lower exposures, they develop immunity. And this brings us to the word of the day: Hormesis. “In the fields of biology and medicine hormesis is defined as an adaptive response of cells and organisms to a moderate (usually intermittent) stress. Examples include ischemic preconditioning, exercise, dietary energy restriction and exposures to low doses of certain phytochemicals.” On the street this might be said, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” As you might imagine, there are dozens of examples, with radiation being...

    As the mass hysteria that allowed so many governors to frighten citizens into mindless obedience to inane and oppressive edicts has waned, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee (D) is irate. "I am the ruler of this state," he declared. "It is everyone's obligation—citizen and non-citizen, alike—to do what I tell them to do." A major irritant has been the increasingly widespread refusal of sheriffs and local police to cite, arrest, shutdown, or otherwise harass individuals attempting to enjoy the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness our representative democracy is meant to secure. "I consequently have ordered the Department of Labor...

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot's decision to shift police resources to conducting raids on churches that hold services in defiance of her edict that this not be permitted has led to questions regarding her priorities. As is well-known, there are dozens of shootings in the City every week and a lengthy list of unsolved murders. This past Sunday, though, five police cars loaded with officers descended on Chicago Cornerstone Baptist Church to break-up Pastor Courtney Lewis' sermon and disperse the parishioners. Lightfoot justified the raid saying that "the City's residents have learned to live with the constant murders, but COVID-19 is a...

  • Warning: Just because socialist governments make rules to destroy the economy, dont expect the socialists to actually obey their own rules.

    Beware America. The nanny state is real in Victoria, Australia. They think government can replace freedom. They employ ten people to do work that didnt need ten people and then those people get in everybody's way and break their own laws. They want a utopia where there is no death, but if God sends a plague people are going to die. I am not saying that getting the balance right between "safety" and the economy is easy. But I believe in freedom. The false safeties of socialist parasites make me sick.
