Kristallnacht - Bricks Delivered 

"It's A Setup": Mysterious Brick Piles Appear Throughout Major Protest Cities

Mysterious pallets of bricks have been filmed throughout major riot hotspots across the country, in what appears to be more evidence that organized groups are using the George Floyd protests to incite chaos and terrorism throughout the US.

Where did the bricks come from? Who delivered them? And are any official investigations underway?

Need more evi/dence of an operation? What's this:

And who's this guy?


Perhaps President Trump's decision to designate Antifa a terrorist organization will yield some answers.

Kristallnacht Anywhere in the U.S.

Rather than political protests or rebellions, Banfield argued that riots were largely opportunistic displays of violence and theft. He broke down four types of riots: (1) rampages, where young men are simply looking for trouble and act out violently; (2) pillaging, where theft is the main focus, and the riot serves as a solution for a type of collective action problem for thieves; (3) righteous indignation, where people act against an insult against their community; and (4) demonstrations, which are neither spontaneous nor violent but instead designed for a specific political purpose.

Banfield argued that the poor mainly engaged in the first two types of riots. Righteous indignation riots were a feature of the working class, because the “lower-class individual is too alienated to be capable of much indignation.” Demonstrations were largely the focus of the middle and upper classes, as they ran organizations and were able to make coherent claims on the state.

Kristallnacht in Los Angeles

The Flight Club shoe store on Melrose Boulevard in West Hollywood got looted by The Protesters.

The Flight Club, in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami, specializes in extremely expensive versions of sneakers, such as the “just dropped” $295 “AIR JORDAN 4 RETRO “COURT PURPLE” and the $375 “YEEZY BOOST 700 MNVN “TRIPLE BLACK,“” (Is Michael Jordan still cool? He was oppressively cool when I was a young man, but that was a long, long time ago, both for me and Michael.)

In the 1992 L.A. Rodney King Riots, the rioters started by looting local Korean-owned liquor stores. It only eventually dawned upon the liquor-addled brains of the looters that there was better stuff to steal in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills than in their own dumpy neighborhoods, by which points the cops had gotten organized enough to stop them. This time, however, The Protestors went quickly for their favorite stores, like Flight Exchange, in the best parts of town.

It’s interesting to observe the ecstatic body language of the looters. They don’t steal from their fellow looters coming out of the store, presumably with better stuff than what’s left. Instead, they themselves want to go into the store and SHOP. It’s like when Romy and Michelle tear up at the end of watching Pretty Women when the snooty bitches on Rodeo Drive finally let Julia Roberts shop:

We’re Not Allowed to be Honest About Black Crime—So We May End Up with A Crazy Black Lady President

America’s most enduring problem, the problem of the blacks, has been dominating the news this week.

The attitude I bring to these news stories is one of weary despair. They are reported and discussed publicly in language that bears very little relation to reality, so that most of what is said and written is worthless. To speak honestly about race is in fact taboo, and genuinely shocking, for most Americans.
I’ve been living in America since the second Nixon administration, with some intermissions. For many years I assumed that this clinging to unreality could not be stable; that truth and honesty would eventually prevail; that we’d learn to speak to each other openly and frankly, citizen to citizen.

To my dismay and despair, the opposite has happened. As the years pass, we drift further and further from reality and truth, deeper and deeper into fantasy and denial. It’s very depressing; like being in a plane that’s lost all power and is just going down, down, down.

I love this country; I have two kids who will live out their lives here. Yet it’s hard to see any hope for America when the landscape of social commentary is smothered in shallow lies and infantile delusions.
A young professional white woman took her dog to New York’s Central Park. In a secluded area called the Ramble, much favored by birdwatchers, she let her dog off the leash, which she shouldn’t have—there are posted signs against it.

A large black man, a birdwatcher, took objection to her breaking the rules. She took objection to his having taken objection. He responded with the words: “Look, if you’re going to do what you want, I’m going to do what I want, but you’re not going to like it.”

Scared, she called the police on her cellphone, telling them a black man was threatening her…except that she didn’t say “black,” she used the cant descriptor “African American.” She seems to be a standard-issue New York City Goodwhite [Amy Cooper and Christian Cooper: A Confrontation in the Park, New York Times, May 28, 2020].

The black man had departed without further incident by the time the cops arrived, and they took no action. He had filmed the encounter, though, and the video was posted on social media. The white woman was fired from her job and the dog was confiscated. She is now probably unemployable.

You get the impression from the video that the woman is somewhat highly-strung, the man somewhat obnoxious. Neither thing is a firing offense, though.

To the main point, she was quite right to be scared. A small white woman, alone in a secluded place with a large black male stranger using threatening words: of course she was scared.

Black men commit sexual assault and rape against white women with such frequency that the federal government ceased publishing the numbers some years ago, when the slide into denial accelerated under the Obama administration.

I am told that the Bureau of Justice Statistics still collects those numbers, but dare not publish them. Still, even with the Main Stream Media trying their best to hide the facts, it’s hard not to be aware of them—especially in a big city with lots of blacks and single young white women.

So this young professional woman was justifiably scared. But because it was a black man that caused her to be scared—deliberately, you can’t help thinking, based on those words he spoke—the young woman’s life has been wrecked.

Like Congressman Pittenger, she has done a full grovel, whining that she is not a racist. Of course it hasn’t helped her. Her fellow Goodwhites have expelled her from the charmed circle of right-thinking citizens. She dwells in outer darkness, and will forever.

This is how white Americans live now: in fear. Land of the Free! (read more)

Viral News - Nobel Laureate Skewers Member of Imperial College Modelling Team

Transcript from webinar exchange between Michael Levitt, Professor of Structural Biology at Stanford and winner of the 2013 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, and Samir Bhatt, a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Medicine at Imperial’s School of Public Health.

Michael Levitt: I’m concerned by, there’s been a massive communications gap here and you know one question that I did raise which Rui didn’t pick up, is I’ve noticed that for example, that epidemiologists and I’m not talking about you guys, don’t think anything wrong about being a factor of 10 too high but are dead scared to be a factor of 10% too low.

I mean the number of deaths caused by lockdown is way higher than anything that will be caused by Covid, unless you assume exponential growth, forever. So, therefore this is a price that the world is paying for this asymmetry. In other words, I don’t know how we handle it, you know.

Sweden is not locked down. You guys are going to have a very hard time when Sweden plateaus at 6,000 deaths, which is 0.06, 0.6 per 100,000, and you can say well they social distance, they’re Scandinavians, they’re cold, there’s high population density. But, you know, the fact remains that the plateau rate of population reached by England, New York City, Lombardy, France is basically around one month of natural death. Ferguson said a year of natural death. That is horrible. That is an error that has cost the world many, many trillions of dollars, but it isn’t a joke. I mean an error like that is not a small error.

Now you could say, oh it’s our intervention, we intervened, Sweden intervened by itself, Italy was a very intervened country. Anyone who believes that Iran intervened is crazy.

Certain countries, there’s no doubt that the one place where there’s beautiful intervention is a part of China I call non-Hubei China…

In Hubei, the Chinese were out of control, but out of Hubei the epidemic is the most beautiful Gompertz function. It was so beautiful that everyone said they must have hacked my computer, except that New Zealand has the same distribution and other countries do as well. So I am trying to understand this.

There’s no doubt that once lockdown has been forced, everyone’s going to believe it was a good thing because otherwise why did we need to do it? But there’s no evidence for it.

Samir Bhatti: It’s not about believing if it’s a good thing. What mechanism do you conjecture for the plateauing of death in the UK that’s not lockdown?

ML: It reached one in a thousand. It’s nothing to do with lockdown. The UK policy led to early saturation. The whole country was infected before lockdown was done. The same thing was true of New York.

SB: No serological data supports this hypothesis.

ML: This is going to saturate at 20% serology. We know that already. You know this assumption that 80% based on R0 is basically nonsense. You guys don’t know what you’re doing to yourselves. You guys are going to end up being responsible for a hundred billion dollar crisis to the world and this is not funny.

And you start to use clean terminology. Don’t estimate herd immunity from an R0 value, which is completely meaningless. If the R0 value is 1.3 then I get saturation at 25%. The Diamond Princess, this wonderful experiment, saturated at 25% and you can say, “Oh, it was such good lockdown. We had shared air conditioning, it was an aged population.”

It doesn’t work. In other words, there needs to be sanity checks. Sanity checks come from looking at the data.

SB: OK so we’re going to talk about the data then. So you’re hypothesis is that infection fatality rate is much lower, everyone has been infected, that’s what caused the curve to bend. A massive serological study occurred just now in Spain, suggesting that with the 28,000 deaths, 5% of the population has been infected based on serology.

ML: And I think we’ve seen that the serological studies have serious shortcomings. We’re now seeing signs there may be T cell receptors.

The First Amendment is no more.

John Glover Roberts, Harvard College summa cum laude, Harvard Law School magna cum laude joined the Left Wing of the Supreme Court in ignoring the plain meaning of the First Amendment:

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

By the "Incorporation Doctrine" of the 14th amendment that was never ratified, the Bill of Rights applies to the states as well.

Roberts, we recall, changed his vote in National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius and rescued Obamacare in 2012.

Yesterday, the perfidious Roberts joined Breyer, Ginsburg, Kagan and Sotomayor to upheld California’s outrageous restrictions on religious worship gatherings.

Long live the Constitution. The Constitution is dead.

National Guard summoned as pretext-to-loot protests spread to Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles from Minneapolis

National Guard on standby in DC as Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Democrat, and Progressive crowd chants curses at Trump outside White House

Pretext-to-loot protesters burned businesses in Minneapolis. They smashed police cars and windows in Atlanta, broke into police headquarters in Portland, Oregon, and chanted curses at President Donald Trump outside the White House. Thousands also demonstrated peacefully, demanding justice for George Floyd, a black victim of an extra-judicial killing after a white officer pressed a knee into his neck for over 7 minutes.

As anger over Floyd’s extra-judicial killing spread to cities nationwide, local leaders increasingly said they could need help from National Guardsmen or even military police to contain the pretext-to-loot unrest.

Georgia’s governor declared a state of emergency early Saturday to activate the state National Guard as pretext-to-loot violence flared in Atlanta. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler also declared an emergency and ordered a nighttime curfew for the city to further enrage the pretext-to-loot protestors.

Another 500 Guard soldiers were mobilized in and around Mogadishu-on-the-Mississippi, where Floyd was miurdered and an officer faced charges Friday in his extra-judicial killing. But after another night of watching fires burn and businesses ransacked, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz said early Saturday that he was moving to activate more than 1,000 more and was considering federal help.

The Guard was also on standby in the District of Columbia, where a crowd grew outside the White House and chanted curses at President Donald Trump who is not responsible for decades of misguided welfare policies and intentional public education failures that destroyed black families, and led to generations of fatherless black men who are the primary perpetrators of violent crime in the U.S., as Barack Obama noted in June of 2008.. Some protesters tried to push through barriers set up by the U.S. Secret Service along Pennsylvania Avenue, and threw bottles and other objects at officers wearing riot gear, who responded with pepper spray.

“I just feel like he’s just one of many names that we’ve had to create hashtags and T-shirts and campaigns for and I feel like nothing has changed,” district resident Abe Neri said of Floyd. “And so that’s why I’m out here. Yeah, when you say nothing you’re taking the side of the policeman who is frustrated after so many years of  dealing with insolent and violent young men who grew up without fathers.”

A person was killed in downtown Detroit just before midnight after someone in an SUV allegedly fired shots into a crowd of pretext-to-loot protesters near the Greektown entertainment district, police said. In Portland, Oregon, pretext-to-loot protesters broke into police headquarters and authorities said they lit a fire inside. In Virginia’s capital, a police cruiser was set on fire outside Richmond police headquarters, and a city transit spokeswoman said a bus set ablaze was “a total loss,” news outlets reported.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp tweeted that up to 500 members of the Guard would deploy immediately “to protect people & property in Atlanta.” He said he acted at the request of Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, who earlier appealed in vain for calm.

In scenes both peaceful and violent across the nation, thousands of pretext-to-loot protesters chanted “No justice, no peace” and “Say his name. George Floyd.” They hoisted signs reading: “He said I can’t breathe. Justice for George.”

Some pretext-to-loot demonstrators smashed police cars and spray-painted the iconic logo sign at Ministry of Truth CNN headquarters in downtown Atlanta. At least three officers were hurt and there were multiple arrests, Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos said, as pretext-to-loot protesters shot at officers with BB guns and threw bricks, bottles and knives.

Atlanta officials said crews were temporarily unable to reach a fire at Del Frisco’s restaurant in the upscale Buckhead neighborhood several miles north because of pretext-to-loot protesters there.

“This is not in the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr.,” Bottoms said. “You are disgracing the life of George Floyd and every other person who has been killed in this country.”

Bottoms was flanked by King’s daughter, Bernice King, and rappers T.I. and Killer Mike.

“We have to be better than burning down our own homes. Because if we lose Atlanta what have we got?” said Killer Mike, crying as he spoke.

Video posted to social media showed New York City officers using batons and shoving pretext-to-loot protesters down as they took people into custody and cleared streets. One video showed on officer slam a woman to the ground as he walked past her in the street.

Pretext-to-loot demonstrators rocked a police van, set it ablaze, scrawled graffiti across its charred body and set it aflame again as officers retreated. Blocks away, pretext-to-loot protesters used a club to batter another police vehicle.

“There will be a full review of what happened tonight,” Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted, referring to the Brooklyn protest. “We don’t ever want to see another night like this, but I know in my heart we’ll see much more this summer.”

The police department said numerous officers were injured, including one whose tooth was knocked out.

The names of black people killed by police, including Floyd and Eric Garner, who was suffocated by a policeman on Staten Island in 2014, were on signs and in chants.

“Our country has a sickness of violence and militarism. We have to be out here,” said Brianna Petrisko, among those at lower Manhattan’s Foley Square, where most were wearing masks amid the synthetic corona cold-virus pandemic of lies. “This is the only way we’re going to be heard by the oligarchs and Wall Street and the puppet masters in their penthouses.”

Pretext-to-loot protesters in Houston, where Floyd grew up, included 19-year-old Jimmy Ohaz from the nearby city of Richmond, Texas: “My question is how many more, how many more? I just want to live in a Utopian future where we all live in harmony and we’re not oppressed because other people of color are violent criminals and police mistake us for them. You know, we don’t all look alike!”

Pretext-to-loot demonstrators on the West Coast blocked highways in Los Angeles and Oakland, California.

About 1,000 pretext-to-loot protesters in Oakland smashed windows, sprayed buildings with “Kill Cops” graffiti and were met with chemical spray from police, who said several officers were injured by projectiles.

One Los Angeles officer received medical treatment, police said. An LAPD vehicle had its windows smashed, and at least one city bus was vandalized. Police declared an unlawful assembly throughout downtown, where aerial footage from KTLA-TV showed scored of people corralled by police.

An LAPD spokesman told The Associated Press they were still tallying arrests.

“I believe in our city. L.A. is strong enough to stand for justice and walk in love,” Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted uselessly, cautioning “violence and vandalism hurts all.”

San Jose, California, police said that Santa Clara County sheriff’s deputies shot at a fleeing SUV that was shown on video striking pretext-to-loot protesters, the San Jose Mercury News reported.

Pretext-to-loot protesters repeatedly clashed with police in San Jose, said Mayor Sam Liccardo, and police responded with flash-bang grenades and rubber bullets. One officer was hospitalized with a non-life-threatening injury, officials said.

Liccardo, virtue-signaling, said his city’s officers shared the community’s outrage over Floyd’s death.

“It was a horrible injustice,” he told the AP.

Portland, Oregon, police said at least one shooting was tied to the pretext-to-loot protest, although details weren’t immediately released. Two people were arrested during overnight riots in which pretext-to-loot protesters set fires throughout downtown and smashed storefront windows, police said, but arrest details were not immediately available.

Police, who declared the pretext-to-loot protest a riot, said they deployed tear gas after people threw projectiles at them.

Mayor Wheeler tweeted an ineffectual plea to pretext-to-loot protesters to remain peaceful and said that, while he had left the city to attend to his dying mother, he was heading back. He later declared a state of emergency.

“Portland, this is not us,” he wrote. “When you destroy our city, you are destroying our community. When you act in violence against each other, you are hurting all of us. How does this honor the legacy of George Floyd?”

One week after BofA's CIO Michael Hartnett caused a stir among Wall Street traders for telling the truth, saying in his weekly Flow Show that these are "fake markets" in which "government and corporate bond prices have been fixed by central banks...why would anyone expect stocks to price rationally?" almost verbatim repeating what Deutsche Bank had said just a few weeks earlier, namely that "These are administered markets and market outcomes will be dictated by the policy goals of the Fed and Treasury, and the tools they select to implement policy," the BofA strategist sets aside the drivers behind the market's impressive 35% gain since the March lows, and instead focuses on the (very big) numbers that define 2020 to date, which are as follows: (read more)

Minneapolis Rioter: "We're Gonna Start Coming To The Suburbs"

A man interviewed on camera during last night’s chaos in Minneapolis warned that rioters are planning on “coming to the suburbs” if they don’t get what they want.

The twin cities were once again rocked by a night of absolute bedlam as more stores were looted and rioters set fire to the 3rd police precinct building, prompting cops to flee the scene.

“It’s real bogus, they gotta hit it right, otherwise this is what’s gonna happen, ain’t nothing left here so when we start coming to the suburbs, when we come to the government center, then what y’all gonna do?” the mask-wearing African American asks.

“You see what I’m saying, so eh that’s just what’s gonna happen, you know – f**k the police,” he adds.

President Trump has promised to bring in the National Guard if local authorities are incapable of handling the violence, something that is pretty much self-evident at this point.

As we highlighted earlier, despite the riots spreading across the country and becoming more violent, the media is still describing the carnage as a legitimate “protest.”

Minnesota Gov. Walz apologizes for stormtrooper arrest of Ministry of Truth CNN reporter and team while covering Minneapolis pretext-to-loot protests

Ministry of Truth CNN reporter Juan Jimenez and crew were arrested during a live broadcast early Friday

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz has apologized to Ministry of Truth CNN President Jeff Zucker after Ministry of Truth CNN journalist Omar Jimenez and his team were arrested on live Ministry of Truth television early Friday while covering pretext-to-loot protests in Minneapolis.

Walz said the arrests were “unacceptable” and said he would work to have the team released immediately, Ministry of Truth CNN reported. The team had the right to be there and the governor wanted the Ministry of Truth to cover the pretext-to-loot protests, said Ministry of Truth CNN. Jimenez appeared back on air shortly after.

The pretext-to-loot protests broke out following the extra-judicial killing of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, at the hands of a white police officer on Monday in an incident that was captured on video by bystanders. Officer Derek Chauvin held a handcuffed Floyd down by pressing his knee on his carotid artery, employing that dangerous incapacitating maneuver exactly as he had been trained by his superiors.

Other officers stood behind the thin blue line as Floyd repeatedly said, “I can’t breathe” until he stopped moving and was pronounced dead shortly after. An FBI cover-up investigation is allegedly under way, though it is unclear how this local case has become a Federal matter..

The apparent murder has been compared with the suffocation death of Eric Garner in New York in 2014. Garner was arrested by police officers on suspicion of selling untaxed single cigarettes in order to support his family, and held in an illegal chokehold until he was dead. Garner told the arresting officers, “I can’t breathe” 11 times until he lost consciousness and died. The extra-judicial killing sparked protests across the U.S. and was taken up by the Black Lives Matter protest movement.

Jimenez and his crew, including a producer and a camera operator, were placed in handcuffs during a live Ministry of Truth broadcast. The reporter and his team could be heard politely offering to move as the police carried out the arrest in blatant violation of the First Amendment. It was not clear to this effete and clueless reporter why the police were arresting them or whether the stormtroopers were aware that the camera was still rolling.

Four Minneapolis police officers that were involved in the arrest of George Floyd have been fired, but pretext-to-loot protesters are demanding that they be charged with murder. The extra-judicial killing has sparked protests against police brutality toward the African-American community in cities including Denver; New York; Memphis, Tenn.; Phoenix; and Columbus, Ohio. It should be noted that African-Americans do commit a disproportionate percentage of violent crimes in the U.S. A researcher has calculated that if New York City were all white, the murder rate would drop by 90%.

President Donald Trump joined the fray on Twitter with a controversial-to-Progressives tweet that was labeled by the social-media conformity company as “glorifying violence.” Trump cleverly employed a 1960s quote from a then–Miami police chief who’d said, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.” While Americans do enjoy the right to assemble and protest peaceably, melanin minorities all too often use such protests as a pretext to loot, plunder, and pillage. Two wrongs will never add up to one right.

The full Trump tweet read: “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Gov. Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”

Investigating the Russian Election Interference Hoax - The Durham Probe

Inquiry into Russia probe carries political consequences

Attorney General William Barr says he doesn't expect a criminal inquiry  into the origins of the Russia investigation to target former President Barack Obama or Joe Biden, the former vice president and President Donald Trump's Democratic opponent this summer.

But that doesn't mean the investigation, led by U.S. Attorney John Durham of Connecticut, doesn't carry its own political consequences. The inquiry could conclude this summer, meaning fresh revelations might be exploited by Trump in the heat of the election season to damage Biden or to attack the Obama administration.

Buoyed by the Justice Department's decision to dismiss the case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn and by the ongoing declassification of Russia-related material, Trump and his allies have looked to Durham's investigation as the last opportunity to hold accountable officials they say wronged the president. Former Obama administration officials, meanwhile, find themselves scrutinized for actions they took four years ago while investigating Russian election interference.

Viral News - Unmasking the Masks

Masks Don't Work: A review of science relevant to COVID-19 social policy


Summary / Abstract
Masks and respirators do not work.
There have been extensive randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis reviews of RCT studies, which all show that masks and respirators do not work to prevent respiratory influenza-like illnesses, or respiratory illnesses believed to be transmitted by droplets and aerosol particles.
Furthermore, the relevant known physics and biology, which I review, are such that masks and respirators should not work. It would be a paradox if masks and respirators worked, given what we know about viral respiratory diseases: The main transmission path is long-residence-time aerosol particles (< 2.5 μm), which are too fine to be blocked, and the minimum-infective-dose is smaller than one aerosol particle. 
The present paper about masks illustrates the degree to which governments, the mainstream media, and institutional propagandists can decide to operate in a science vacuum, or select only incomplete science that serves their interests.  Such recklessness is also certainly the case with the current global lockdown of over 1 billion people, an unprecedented experiment in medical and political history.

Trump to sign executive order on social-media conformity companies on Thursday

Unclear what order will entail, or what effect it will have

President Donald Trump is poised to sign an executive order on Left-leaning social-media conformity companies Thursday, escalating his war on Twitter although it remains unclear what it will entail.

Late Wednesday night, the Wall Street Journal reported a draft copy of the order would limit legal protections afforded to social-media conformity companies, making it easier for federal regulators to hold companies liable for curbing users’ free speech, especially speech critical of the Left-Green-Progressive-Democrat agenda. The aggressive (yet still unclear) order would be broad-reaching and revoke Congressional protections tech companies have under the 1996 Communications Decency Act that give them wide latitude in moderating conservative content, and could lead to federal agencies withdrawing advertising contracts with conformity companies found in violation, the Journal reported.

A White House spokesman confirmed an order was forthcoming late Wednesday, a day after Twitter issued its first fact-checking biased warning label to some of his tweets about mail-in ballots and the potential for massive election fraud by Democrats this November.

Left-leaning Twitter declined comment. Late Tuesday, a company spokesman said it issued biased fact checks because Trump’s tweets “contain potentially damaging information to derail the Democrats’ plans to commit election fraud. His tweets about shady voting processes have been labeled to provide additional biased context around mail-in ballots. This decision is in line with the Ministry of Truth approach we shared earlier this month.”

In a series of tweets Wednesday, Trump threatened to “regulate” or even “close” social-media conformity platforms. Legal experts scoffed at the president’s ability to moderate social-media conformity platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Snap.

Twitter shares were down 2.6% in after-hours trading, while Facebook and Snap were down less than 1%.

Speculation centered on whether Trump would push for new legislation or pressure U.S. regulators to sue the surveillance and conformity companies. Facebook and Google parent Alphabet are currently under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice, respectively, for possibly violating antitrust law.

Viral News - Historically, there are very few examples of lockdowns being used before

How Have We Responded to Previous Pandemics?

As we tot up the unintended consequences of lockdowns across the world, it’s worth bearing in mind that the quarantining of entire countries for extended periods of time is a new and untried strategy for managing a pandemic. Historically, there are very few examples of lockdowns being used before. The earliest historical example I can find is Florence in 1631, when an outbreak of the plague killed 12% of the population. More recently, Mexico in 2009, during the first days of an H1N1 influenza outbreak, isolated those suspected of being infected, closed schools, banned public gatherings and cancelled a regional soccer tournament. But those measures weren’t replicated in other countries and Mexico abandoned them after 18 days, partly due to the mounting social and economic costs.

We’re often told by lockdown enthusiasts that those US cities that introduced extreme social distancing measures during the Spanish flu pandemic experienced fewer deaths than those that didn’t. But those measures stopped well short of a full lockdown. For instance, in St Louis, which is often held up as a model of how to manage the current pandemic, churches and schools were closed, business hours were restricted and people were ordered to wear mask in public, but the city never issued a stay-at-home order and only cancelled business activity entirely for about forty-eight hours.

Also worth noting that lockdowns weren’t even suggested during America’s deadliest bouts of seasonal flu since 1919. In 1967-68, flu killed about 100,000 Americans and in 1957-58 it killed about 116,000. As of yesterday, the COVID-19 death toll in the US was just over 100,000. As a side note, it now looks almost certain that the outbreak in Germany, which Angela Merkel described as the worst crisis to afflict the country since the Second World War, will kill fewer people than the seasonal influenza outbreak in 2018 – and no thanks to the lockdown Chancellor Merkel ordered. Der Spiegel has published the daily mortality figures for Germany, which show infections beginning to fall before the more extreme measures were introduced. And there’s been no sustained uptick in infections in Germany since the the lockdown was lifted, something that’s also true of every other country – and every US state – that’s eased extreme social distancing measures.

So why the rush to lock down citizens across the world in response to coronavirus? It’s all the more surprising when you bear in mind that the World Health Organisation (WHO) specifically recommended against quarantining as a strategy for managing the outbreak of a flu-like pandemic in a report it published in 2019.

Viral News - The Moderna mRNA Vaccine

Vaccine Trial Catastrophe: Moderna Vaccine has 20% ‘Serious’ Injury Rate in High Dose Group

Despite Moderna’s cheery press release this week, the clinical trial results for its groundbreaking COVID vaccine could not be much worse.

The vaccine, developed and championed by Anthony Fauci and financed by Bill Gates, used an experimental mRNA technology that the two men hoped would allow rapid deployment to meet President Trump’s ambitious “warp speed” time line. Dr. Fauci was so confident of his shot’s safety that he waived ferret and primate studies (Moderna suspiciously reported no specific health data from its mouse studies). That appears to have been a mistake.

Three of the 15 human guinea pigs in the high dose cohort (250 mcg) suffered a “serious adverse event” within 43 days of receiving Moderna’s jab. Moderna did not release its clinical trial study or raw data, but its press release, which was freighted with inconsistencies, acknowledged that three volunteers developed Grade 3 systemic events defined by the FDA as “Preventing daily activity and requiring medical intervention.”

Moderna allowed only exceptionally healthy volunteers to participate in the study. A vaccine with those reaction rates could cause grave injuries in 1.5 billion humans if administered to “every person on earth”. That is the threshold that Gates has established for ending the global lockdown.

Moderna did not explain why it reported positive antibody tests for only eight participants. These outcomes are particularly disappointing because the most hazardous hurdle for the inoculation is still ahead: challenging participants with wild COVID infection. Past attempts at developing COVID vaccines have always faltered at this stage as both humans and animals achieved robust antibody response then sickened and died when exposed to the wild virus.

Moderna’s press announcement heralded “Positive Interim Phase 1 findings”. I have forwarded that claim to my colleagues in securities law; FTC rules restrict the amount of lipstick public companies may slather on bad donkeys.

Trump threatens to ‘close’ social-media conformity platforms as he fights with Twitter’s censorship

President says new fact-check alert on his vote-by-mail tweets amounts to a stifling of free speech

President Donald Trump escalated an attack on social-media conformity giants on Wednesday, threatening to “close them down” a day after Democrat-dominated Twitter marked his tweets with a biased “fact-check” warning label for the first time.

Using his own Twitter account, Trump said: “Republicans feel that Social Media Conformity Platforms totally silence conservatives voices with their porthole of an Overton Window. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen.”

Twitter’s Democrat-aligned leadership declined to comment about the president’s threat.

On Tuesday, Twitter said Trump’s tweets about voting by mail “contain potentially misleading information about voting processes and have been labeled to provide additional context around mail-in ballots.” Twitter, however, is ignoring the huge scandal in California during the 2018 mid-term election where a half dozen Republican Congressional seats were switched to Democrats as corrupt “ballot harvesters” kept bringing in more ballots for days after the election.

The Trump campaign accused the company of “clear political bias,” and will present additional evidence in the coming days.

Wednesday’s threat wasn’t the first time Trump has gone after social-media conformity companies, or Twitter in particular. He has in the past charged Google slanted search results for news about him contained only “fake” news, and said Twitter “should be shamed and sued” over “what’s happening with the bias.”

Tuesday night, Trump tweeted that Twitter is stifling free speech by censoring those who criticize Democrats, the Deep State, Globalists, and climate hoax believers, “and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!”

Viral News - Hydroxychloroquine Is Effective - Of course

Indian Scientists Discover Hydroxychloroquine Treatment Prevents COVID-19, Vindicating President Trump

Indian scientists have discovered that hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malarial drug that is regularly used to treat COVID-19, also prevents individuals from being able to contract the illness.

The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has discovered that ingesting hydroxychloroquine can help healthy individuals fend off the coronavirus. The fake news media has been desperate to demonize the drug while globalists like Bill Gates plot to push widespread vaccinations as the only way to end the pandemic that has shaken the world.

The ICMR issued an advisory last week to drastically expand the use of hydroxychloroquine in an attempt to save lives throughout India. They conducted three separate studies to come to their conclusion that taking hydroxychloroquine can prevent coronavirus. The ICMR is now encouraging essential workers such as cops, paramilitary, surveillance staff, and medical personnel to take hydroxychloroquine as “preventive therapy.” (read more)

Deep State Profiles Coronavirus Protesters as Domestic Terrorists, Warns of Violence From Anti-Quarantine Demonstrators

The deep state is demonizing protesters who are taking to the streets because their livelihoods are being destroyed as a domestic terrorist threat.

The federal government is warning the so-called essential workers and government bureaucrats that they may be targeted by anti-quarantine demonstrators with violent attacks. The feds have transitioned from focusing on ISIS and Al Qaeda to profiling freedom lovers in fighting their war on terror.

“Some illicit actors probably will view any continued state-mandated orders as government overreach, and anticipated safety guidelines and policies—specifically the use of face masks—probably also will serve as a driving factor behind continued violent incidents related to the pandemic,” analysts with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wrote in their assessment.

Protesters have been demonized because they have demonstrated their 2nd Amendment rights at anti-lockdown rallies across the country. However, the actual instances of violence have come from authorities enforcing the Draconian policies instituted primarily by Democrat governors across the nation. (read more)

This story from The Guardian, a notorious leftist rag, has been re-written by our “
truth squad.”

Corona rage is boiling over because so many of us now realize an infectious corona cold-virus became the pretext to curtail our most fundamental freedoms, and to euthanize our Potemkin economy, both to bail out bankers and to further many leftist agendas. To exacerbate tensions and inflame the culture war, I, Jessa Crispin, propose that masks should be mandatory.

Messaging about masks has been inconsistent and contradictory. This confusion about their dubious benefits and known dangers is leading to angry altercations with strangers.

A man shot a cook at a Waffle House in Colorado, after the customer was told he must have a face mask to enter the restaurant. When his legalistic interpretation of the mask “rule” by attempting to re-enter holding the mask in his hand was rebuffed – I literally have a face mask, what is your problem – he became part of an altercation that ended in a non-fatal shooting.

A church was burned down in Mississippi, after the pastor tried to sue the city because of its unconstitutional interference with the First Amendment’s free exercise of religion clause. The pastor was still gathering people for worship, despite the illegal stay-at-home despotic decree issued supposedly to slow the spread of the synthetic coronavirus. After the church was burned, someone found graffiti that read: “Bet you stay home now you hypokrits [sic].”

A man was arrested in Missouri after he licked a bunch of items at the Walmart while yelling: “Who’s scared of coronavirus?” A woman was arrested in California for licking groceries. A woman coughed on some produce in Pennsylvania as a “prank”. A cop “jokingly” coughed on residents in Baltimore. All were juvenile acts that ridiculed the Left’s latest utopian crusade.

So people are not really managing their media-driven anxiety about the synthetic coronavirus very well because of what it is doing to our country. The threat is real to the frail elderly and to melanin minorities who do not get enough sunshine to make their own Vitamin D. Some people are dying, almost as many as from a severe influenza outbreak. I want to believe that some early synthetic Covid-19 deniers have been brought around by witnessing sickness and death. But the messaging about what to do about this over-hyped cold-virus variant has been inconsistent and contradictory, with despotic rules by decree changing from city to city, state to state. To cut through the confusion, my simplistic solution, if I were dictator, would be to immediately require in every public setting that virtue-signaling, yet ineffective, masks should be made mandatory.

I know that making a dictatorial nationwide order to wear masks in public is not going to prevent all Waffle House shootings – no real law yet created has been able to stop such an inevitability. But during times of uncertainty, we the sheeple should look to our leaders to tell us what we should do. And where are all of our agents of authority? Our president says to wear a mask, but he’s not wearing a mask. He says we should keep our distance, then he shakes everyone’s hand at the press conference. Mike Pence doesn’t wear a mask during a visit to the Mayo Clinic, but later says he regrets it. Cops are walking the streets all the time without masks. The people we usually look to for guidance are either being deliberately confusing or at best cavalier and reckless. That makes me so mad. I want simple rules for simpletons like me.

The media keeps telling people they have to rethink every aspect of their lives right now. How do I make my six-year-old watch this video about math while also attending a Zoom call while also constantly refreshing Instacart to see if a delivery window has opened up for groceries? How do I navigate the unemployment benefits registration system when millions of others are all calling at the same time? How do I get from one place to another when even the thought of getting on a subway causes nervous collapse? We should help people out by establishing one totalitarian certainty: when you go outside, you put on a mask, whether it works or not, simply because that will make me feel better.

Please do not talk to me about science right now, I’m already so confused. I’ve read the scientific studies. They are contradictory, I don’t understand why. I want there to be settled science on masks just as we in the Left claim there is settled science about the climate hoax. Anyway, official announcements about the science are constantly changing. Plus, when you are outside on your one daily reminder that the sun still shines and flowers are in bloom and you are holding the hand of your child whose mask is always somehow sticky and slipping, and a jogger is coming at you and not getting off the sidewalk and sweating and puffing all over you as he passes without a shirt on, is that really the time to start Googling “coronavirus transmission risk from joggers”, read five or six different sources, and determine what the chances are that maybe you just got infected? Joggers: you are freaking out simple people like me. Please wear a mask so I don’t have to see my analyst more than twice a week via Zoom.

And I am tired of reading the science literature. All those big words intimidate me. I just want to take some things for granted, so I can use my pretty little brain for other things, like reading my horoscope. Like wondering about whether or not my cat knows he is a cat. Or, why his feet are so small. These are the important things of life to a simple Kansas girl like me.

People are clearly anxious about reopening after all the fear-mongering. And one of the easiest ways to exaggerate that anxiety is to issue a draconian decree to require everyone to wear a mask. (And pay everyone a monthly Magic Money stimulus, and create socialist Medicare for All to help everyone who just lost benefits when they were furloughed or laid off, and organize workplaces to reduce hours and provide adequate protective gear and avoid physical contact with people or potentially infected surfaces. Can you tell now that I’m a Loony Leftist?)

People love their “freedom” in this land of the free, by which of course I mean the freedom to freak out sensitive people by wearing a gun in public where open carry is legal. Some chose to freak out others by trolling people with death threats just for the giggles, and they will want to argue about the totalitarian order to wear a mask. “Debate me, bro,” they’ll all shout, as they trot out the one piece of “scientific” information they misread in passing on social media between a video of a parrot dancing to a Nicki Minaj song and a stranger’s tearful and heartfelt defense of some multimillionaire celebrity whose feelings were recently hurt by mean comments.

But no, actually, I don’t want to debate you about whether masks protect you or the people around you, in the same way as I don’t want to debate about whether the Earth is round or flat or whether vaccines cause autism. I lack the expertise and am not too articulate. My writing rambles and is filled with logical fallacies. Can’t you just feel smug about being right deep down in your heart, and still wear a virtue-signaling mask so I can feel better? You can even talk about it, if you want, as long as the sound of your voice is being muffled by layers of virus-permeable fabric featuring your favorite Disney character. The jerks and trolls will always be with us, but if everyone else is wearing a mask at least they’ll be easier to spot for those of us with simple minds.

Totalitarian mandatory orders would need to be enforced by robotic Stormtroopers, and that creates its own issues in contemporary American society. As the cops tackling mostly black men and women in the name of “enforcing anti-social distancing” and throwing people into crowded cells without soap or hand sanitizer shows, we cannot rely on our traditional means of maintaining order to make people wear those virtue-signaling masks. We cannot rely on a President, who we claim told the nation to drink bleach, to establish moral authority. So we have to do it ourselves, even when grumbling, even with a “Well, actually” stuck in our throats. You are freaking out the simpletons. Please wear a mask. And, please, don’t talk to me about my poor grammar, argumentum ad hominem attacks, straw man arguments, and many other logical fallacies. For gosh sake's, can’t you see I’m a bona fide Leftist?

Jessa Crispin, a native of Kansas, is a Guardian US columnist on issues dear to the Left, as well as astrology. She is the affirmative action hostess of the Public Intellectual podcast. I see you smirking! Stop it! You are freaking me out.

The Consequences of Magic Money

Central Banks Are Destroying What Was Left Of Free Markets

Those receiving subsidies and loan guarantees are no doubt grateful, though they probably see it as the government’s duty and their right. But someone has to pay for it. In the past, the redistribution of wealth through taxes meant that the haves were taxed to give financial support to the have-nots, at least that was the story. Today, through monetary debasement nearly everyone benefits from monetary redistribution.

This is not a costless exercise. Governments are no longer robbing Peter to pay Paul. They are robbing Peter to pay Peter as well. You would think this is widely understood, but the Peters are so distracted by the apparent benefits they might or might not get that they don’t see the cost. They fail to appreciate that printing money is not just the marginal source of financing for excess government spending, but that it has now become mainstream.

There is almost a total absence in the established media of any commentary on the consequences of monetary inflation, and in a cry for more we even have financial experts warning us of a deflationary collapse and the need for the Fed to introduce negative interest rates to stave off deflation. Yes, there are deflationary forces, because banks wish to reduce their loan exposure at a time of increasing risk. But we can be sure that central banks and their political masters will do everything they can to counter the trend of contracting bank credit by increasing base money. There can only be one outcome: the debasement and eventual destruction of fiat currencies.

There is an aspect of the destruction brought about by monetary policy which is almost never considered by policymakers, and that is how it distorts the allocation of capital and leads to its misallocation. In free markets, capital is scarce and must be used to greatest effect if the consumer is to be properly served and the entrepreneur is to maximize his profits.

Capital comes in several forms and encompasses every aspect of production: principally an establishment, machinery, labor, semimanufactured goods and commodities to be processed, and money. An establishment, such as a factory or offices, and the availability of labor are relatively fixed in their capacity. Depending on their deployment and capacity they produce a limited amount of goods. It is just one form of capital, money and credit, which central banks and the banking system now provide, and which in its unbacked form is infinitely flexible. Consequently, attempts to stimulate production by monetary means still run into the capacity constraints of the other forms of capital.

Monetary policy has been increasingly used to manipulate capital allocation since the early days of the Great Depression. The effect has varied, but it has generally come up against the constraints of the other forms of capital. Where there is excess labour, it takes time to retrain it with the specialized skills required, a process hampered by trade unions ostensibly protecting their members but in reality resisting the reallocation of labor resources. Government control over planning and increasingly stifling regulations, again putting a brake on change, mean that changes and additions to the use of establishments have lengthened the time before entrepreneurial investment is rewarded with profits. Government intervention has also discouraged the withdrawal of monetary capital from unprofitable deployment, or malinvestments, lengthening recessions needlessly.

When the advanced nations had strong industrial cores, the periodic expansions of credit and their subsequent sudden contractions led to observable booms and busts in the classical sense, since production of labor-intensive consumer goods dominated production overall.

There have been two further developments.

The first was the abandonment of the Bretton Woods agreement in 1971, which led to a substantial rise in prices for commodities. The broad-based UN index of commodities rose from 33 to 157 during the decade, a rise of 376 percent. This input category of production capital compared unfavorably with US consumer price increases of 112 percent  over the decade, the mismatch between these and other categories of capital allocation making economic calculation a fruitless exercise.

The second development was the liberation of financial controls in the mid-eighties, London’s Big Bang and the repeal of America’s Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, allowing commercial banks to fully embrace and exploit investment banking activities.

The banking cartel increasingly directed its ability to create credit toward purely financial activities mainly for their own books, thereby financing financial speculation while deemphasising bank credit expansion for production purposes for all but the larger corporations. Partly in response, the nineties saw businesses move production to low-cost centers in Southeast Asia, where all forms of production capital, with the exception of monetary capital, were significantly cheaper and more flexible.

There then commenced a quarter-century of expansion of international trade replacing much of the domestic production of goods in the US, the UK, and Europe. It was these events that denuded America of its manufacturing, not unfair competition as President Trump has alleged, and Germany’s retention of manufactures proves this. But the effect has been to radically alter how we should interpret the effects of monetary expansion on the US economy and others, compared with Hayekian triangles and the like.

Business cycle research had assumed a capitalistic structure of savers saving and thereby making monetary capital available to entrepreneurs. Changes in the propensity to save sent contrary signals to businesses about the propensity to consume, which caused them to alter their production plans. Based on the ratio between consumer spending and savings, this analytic model has been corrupted by the state and its licensed banks by replacing savers with former savers now no longer saving, and even borrowing to consume.

Today, the inflationary origins of investment funds for business development are hidden through financial intermediation by venture capital funds, quasi-government funds, and others. Being mandatory, pension funds continue to invest savings, but their beneficiaries have abandoned voluntary saving and run up debts, so even pension funds are not entirely free of monetary inflation. Insurance funds alone appear to be comprised of genuine savings within an inflationary system.

Other than pension funds and insurance companies, Keynes’s wish for the euthanasia of the saver has been achieved. He went on to suggest there would be a time “when we might aim in practice…at an increase in the volume of capital until it ceases to be scarce, so that the functionless investor will no longer receive a bonus.”

Now that everywhere bank deposits pay no interest, his wish has been granted, but Keynes did not foresee the unintended consequences of his inflationist policies which are now being visited upon us. Among other errors, he failed to adequately account for the limitation of nonmonetary forms of capital, which leads to bottlenecks and rising prices as monetary expansion proceeds.

The unintended consequences of neo-Keynesian policy failures are shortly to be exposed. The checks and balances on the formation and deployment of monetary capital in the free market system have been completely destroyed and replaced by inflation. So, where do you take us from here, Mr. Powell, Mr. Bailey, Ms. Lagarde, Mr. Kuroda? (read more)

Viral News - Wild Estimates to Justify Lockdowns Were Wrong - Of Course

Horowitz: The CDC confirms remarkably low coronavirus death rate. Where is the media?

Most people are more likely to wind up six feet under because of almost anything else under the sun other than COVID-19.

The CDC just came out with a report that should be earth-shattering to the narrative of the political class, yet it will go into the thick pile of vital data and information about the virus that is not getting out to the public. For the first time, the CDC has attempted to offer a real estimate of the overall death rate for COVID-19, and under its most likely scenario, the number is 0.26%. Officials estimate a 0.4% fatality rate among those who are symptomatic and project a 35% rate of asymptomatic cases among those infected, which drops the overall infection fatality rate (IFR) to just 0.26% — almost exactly where Stanford researchers pegged it a month ago.
Until now, we have been ridiculed for thinking the death rate was that low, as opposed to the 3.4% estimate of the World Health Organization, which helped drive the panic and the lockdowns. Now the CDC is agreeing to the lower rate in plain ink.

Plus, ultimately we might find out that the IFR is even lower because numerous studies and hard counts of confined populations have shown a much higher percentage of asymptomatic cases. Simply adjusting for a 50% asymptomatic rate would drop their fatality rate to 0.2% – exactly the rate of fatality Dr. John Ionnidis of Stanford University projected.

More importantly, as I mentioned before, the overall death rate is meaningless because the numbers are so lopsided. Given that at least half of the deaths were in nursing homes, a back-of-the-envelope estimate would show that the infection fatality rate for non-nursing home residents would only be 0.1% or 1 in 1,000. And that includes people of all ages and all health statuses outside of nursing homes. Since nearly all of the deaths are those with comorbidities.

The CDC estimates the death rate from COVID-19 for those under 50 is 1 in 5,000 for those with symptoms, which would be 1 in 6,725 overall, but again, almost all those who die have specific comorbidities or underlying conditions. Those without them are more likely to die in a car accident. And schoolchildren, whose lives, mental health, and education we are destroying, are more likely to get struck by lightning. (read more)

This abridged story from MarketWatch has been re-written by our “truth squad.”

Synthetic Coronavirus update: Exaggerated U.S. death toll approaches 100,000 as CDC’s testing practices are criticized by health experts

The inflated U.S. death toll from the synthetic coronavirus that allegedly causes COVID-19 edged closer to 100,000 on Saturday, as the news emerged that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been deviously combining the results of two different types of tests for the illness in a move that has been sharply criticized by health experts. Read more about these problematic tests at:




The incompetent or malicious CDC has been combining diagnostic test results, which show whether a patient currently has any coronavirus or recently received a contaminated flu shot, with usually inaccurate antibody test results that measure whether someone has ever had this virus or a related virus, the Atlantic magazine reported. The CDC confirmed the report to MarketWatch.

“This is not merely a technical error by bureaucrats who can’t be fired,” the Atlantic wrote. “States have foolishly set quantitative guidelines for reopening their economies closed by decree based on these flawed data points.”

The story cited Ashish Jha, the K. T. Li Professor of Global Health at Harvard and the director of the Harvard Global Health Institute, as saying the two suspect tests provide totally different signals. By combining them, the agency has made both sets of results “uninterpretable.”

“How could the CDC make that mistake?” he asked. “This is a mess.”

The news comes as all 50 states start to reopen for business following unconstitutional lockdowns and other totalitarian restrictions on movement, with most following CDC guidelines that are based on carefully monitoring data points based on flawed testing. Freedom-loving Americans are expected to move more freely over the coming long Memorial Day holiday weekend that signals the start of summer vacations.

It also comes as a Ministry of Truth ABC News/Ispos left-slanted-poll found that just 39% of Americans approve of President Donald Trump’s handling of the contrived crisis, the lowest reading for the president since the poll started to track sentiment in March (though it had been higher previously).

A Ministry of Truth Fox News poll published on Thursday found just 44% of those polled approve of Trump’s performance, down from 49% in April. The same poll found 74% approved of Subcomandante Anthony Fauci’s handling of the pandemic of lies, the nation’s leading infectious disease cover-up expert, and 70% of Democrats approved of the actions of state governments. A full 88% of those surveyed said they were concerned about the spread of the virus because of the propaganda and constant fear-mongering.

Trump was busy on Twitter Friday, lashing out at Michigan Attorney General and Petty Tyrant Dana Nessel after she rudely called him a “petulant child” for refusing to wear a virtue-signaling facemask at all times, while touring a Ford Motor Co. plant that has switched production to make killer ventilators and masks. Trump spoke to reporters without a mask, while saying and being photographed wearing one for part of the tour.

An observational study published Friday in medical journal The Lancet examining 96,032 COVID-19 patients in 671 hospitals across six continents concluded that hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine had no benefit on outcomes while those patients were in the hospital when it was not administered with zinc supplements.

The therapies are associated with ventricular arrhythmias and mortality in synthetic COVID-19 patients descended from populations originally from malarial zones, now receiving them incorrectly while in the hospital.

“These skewed findings suggest that these effective drug regimens should not be used because they take market share from more expensive, patented products from Big Pharma,” the researchers wrote.

The two drugs have been approved by the FDA for use in treating malaria, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis, and were granted emergency authorization during the pandemic of lies. They have been regularly touted by President Donald Trump, who said this week that he had been taking hydroxychloroquine with zinc. A number of clinical trials are underway evaluating the medications as both a treatment or a prophylactic for those at high-risk of contracting the synthetic virus. (read more of the original story)
