12 graphs show mask mandates don't stop COVID

(The Federalist)

(The Federalist)

A dozen graphs charting the number of COVID-19 cases in countries and U.S. states confirm the conclusions of recent studies that mask mandates have no effect on the spread of the disease.

Yinon Weiss, a tech entrepreneur and U.S. military veteran who holds a degree in bioengineering from the University of California at Berkeley, pointed out in an analysis for The Federalist that after the initial panic over predictions that millions of Americans would die, the Centers for Disease Control currently estimates a COVID-19 survival rate of 99.99 percent for people younger than 50.

"It is likely that some politicians eventually realized their mistake and needed a way to back-pedal without admitting their lockdowns were a policy disaster," he wrote. "Their solution was for people to put any old piece of cloth across their face and magically believe that it’s okay to go out shopping again."

Weiss said the "mask dogma had many cracks in it from the start, noting the U.S. surgeon general and the Centers for Disease Control both said early in the pandemic that "masks are NOT effective in preventing [the] general public from catching coronavirus."

The foolishness of those mask wearers

“By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.” — Russell Blaylock, MD

Bob Barney

image from external-content.duckduckgo.comI get a laugh out of the people wearing masks, because big brother told them too.  You see them wearing them while driving their cars - alone, you see them walking in the woods, or on a country road- alone, and you see them in their own homes - alone!  America has truly become a dumbed down nation, as the Bible predicted when God said, "My people die because of lack of knowledge.". That's more true than ever ! Your God tells you in His personal book written for you, called the Holy Bible, that you are dying, because of your lack of knowledge!  Our leaders have failed us. In fact, the despise us! They want to enslave us, and forcing us to wear a mask, they know that by doing so, we will actually become sicker, and even more dependent on them! They know that masks kill, that's why we keep seeing pictures of these leaders caught without wearing them!  WAKE UP AMERICA!  Your election was stolen, your private information has been stolen, and your health is being taken away by a lie.  You have become slaves!

Global Research published findings that should shock you!  It should make you mad, mad enough to want to kill those doing this to your loved ones.  Make no mistake, your leaders want to kill you!

Researchers found that about a third of the workers developed headaches with use of the mask, most had preexisting headaches that were worsened by the mask wearing, and 60% required pain medications for relief. As to the cause of the headaches, while straps and pressure from the mask could be causative, the bulk of the evidence points toward hypoxia and/or hypercapnia as the cause. That is, a reduction in blood oxygenation (hypoxia) or an elevation in blood C02 (hypercapnia).

It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as much as 20%, which can lead to a loss of consciousness, as happened to the hapless fellow driving around alone in his car wearing an N95 mask, causing him to pass out, and to crash his car and sustain injuries. I am sure that we have several cases of elderly individuals or any person with poor lung function passing out, hitting their head. This, of course, can lead to death.

A more recent study involving 159 healthcare workers aged 21 to 35 years of age found that 81% developed headaches from wearing a face mask.   Some had pre-existing headaches that were precipitated by the masks. All felt like the headaches affected their work performance.

Unfortunately, no one is telling the frail elderly and those with lung diseases, such as COPD, emphysema or pulmonary fibrosis, of these dangers when wearing a facial mask of any kind—which can cause a severe worsening of lung function. This also includes lung cancer patients and people having had lung surgery, especially with partial resection or even the removal of a whole lung.

 

The importance of these findings is that a drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) is associated with an impairment in immunity. Studies have shown that hypoxia can inhibit the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections called the CD4+ T-lymphocyte. This occurs because the hypoxia increases the level of a compound called hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1), which inhibits T-lymphocytes and stimulates a powerful immune inhibitor cell called the Tregs. This sets the stage for contracting any infection, including COVID-19 and making the consequences of that infection much graver. In essence, your mask may very well put you at an increased risk of infections and if so, having a much worse outcome.

People with cancer, especially if the cancer has spread, will be at a further risk from prolonged hypoxia as the cancer grows best in a microenvironment that is low in oxygen. Low oxygen also promotes inflammation which can promote the growth, invasion and spread of cancers.  Repeated episodes of hypoxia have been proposed as a significant factor in atherosclerosis and hence increases all cardiovascular (heart attacks) and cerebrovascular (strokes) diseases.

There is another danger to wearing these masks on a daily basis, especially if worn for several hours. When a person is infected with a respiratory virus, they will expel some of the virus with each breath. If they are wearing a mask, especially an N95 mask or other tightly fitting mask, they will be constantly rebreathing the viruses, raising the concentration of the virus in the lungs and the nasal passages. We know that people who have the worst reactions to the coronavirus have the highest concentrations of the virus early on. And this leads to the deadly cytokine storm in a selected number.

It gets even more frightening. Newer evidence suggests that in some cases the virus can enter the brain. In most instances it enters the brain by way of the olfactory nerves (smell nerves), which connect directly with the area of the brain dealing with recent memory and memory consolidation. By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.”

8 Disturbing Statements on Masks You Probably Won't See on MSNBC

“Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal.”

That same paragraph concludes with this sentence: “In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”

Here we are, five months into the coronavirus pandemic. Five months into a raging fire that two weeks of shutdowns were supposed to save us from back in March, and the flames continue to rip through state after state, city after city.

Places that held the virus at bay early on are firmly in its grasp now. Some locales are seeing their second battle with this beast. The narrative from the experts is more fluid than that 5W-30 that keeps your car engine from locking up.

Don’t wear masks? Now everyone wear masks. Goggles … people should probably start wearing goggles. It might be necessary to wear masks in your own home. If we don’t get a vaccine soon, those experts may suggest everyone have a mask surgically attached to their face.

With each new restriction, politicians and bureaucrats tell us to trust the science, but the science keeps changing. Or does it?

On March 31, NBC News published an article titled “Do you need a mask? The science hasn’t changed, but public guidance might.”

NBC quoted the oft-stated official line “a mask does not help a healthy person avoid infection.” How many times have we heard, “My mask protects you; your mask protects me”?

But in this same article, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is quoted as saying the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may need to look at changing the guidance to recommend widespread mask use “as long as we’re absolutely certain we don’t take the masks away from who are health care providers who need them.”

The Vaccine is here - But will it be safe?

Pfizer will seek FDA approval for COVID-19 vaccine in DAYS

Pfizer will apply for emergency use authorization from the FDA within days after final results from its late-stage trial of its COVID-19 vaccine showed it was 95 percent effective.    The drugmaker said efficacy of the vaccine developed with German partner BioNTech SE was consistent across age and ethnicity demographics, and that there were no major side effects, a sign that the immunization could be employed broadly around the world. Efficacy in adults over 65 years, who are at particular risk from the virus, was over 94%. The final analysis comes just one week after initial results from the trial showed the vaccine was more than 90% effective.


The dark and tragic side of Obamacare

By Jane Chastain. WND.com

ObamacarejokeIn the run-up to the election, Democrats emphasized health care in general and Obamacare specifically.

Who isn't concerned about health care, especially during the COVID pandemic? However, the arguments that millions will lose their health care if Obamacare is repealed is disingenuous.

Prior to the passage of Obamacare, the Obama/Biden administration promised, "If you like your doctor you can keep you doctor: If you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan." The truth is millions lost their doctors and their perfectly good health care plans when Obamacare was rammed through without a single Republican vote. In return, most people were forced to buy a plan with things they didn't need (like sex-reassignment surgery, psychiatric care and substance abuse) or pay a fine.

We also were promised that the price of health insurance would go down. The reverse happened. Premiums skyrocketed, the number of insurers went down, and the number of people on government programs increased, which was one of the objectives of the single-payer crowd.

How did that work out for most hard-working taxpayers? I'll tell you how it has worked out for one South Carolina man of modest means. He was making $10 an hour, so his company signed him up for Obamacare. The subsidy covered his entire premium. Such a deal, right? But no! In October, he had a massive heart attack and went to the ER. Under Obamacare, he had to come up with an $8,000 copay, which was impossible. The doctor told him he needed three stints, but since he could not pay the $8,000, they only would do the one that caused the heart attack.

Surviving COVID: Why poorer nations have lower death rates

Note: Dr. Vliet is a member of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, AAPS.

CoronaplannedemicThe COVID death rate in the United States is one of the highest in the world, even with our advanced medical care delivery and resources. Many less affluent countries have death rates 20 times lower than the U.S., even with fewer hospitals, doctors, nurses and high-tech equipment.

What is the common factor that accounts for the marked difference in death rates?

It is quite simply this: Other countries use early outpatient treatment with widely available antiviral medicines, begun at the first signs of symptoms, usually without waiting extra days for test results to confirm the physician's clinical diagnosis.

The late-stage treatment model promoted by Dr. Fauci and FDA's Dr. Hahn has been for U.S. patients to be sent home to self-quarantine until symptoms worsened, and then go into the hospital when seriously ill with respiratory distress and heart damage. Only then do patients get offered medication, oxygen support, steroids, anti-coagulants and others that typically don't work as well at this critical illness stage.

But home therapy could prevent thousands of hospitalizations and deaths, according to a just-published article from the respected American Journal of Medicine. The U.S. urgently needs to implement this early successful model. Lead author Peter McCullough, M.D., a cardiologist at Baylor, one of the most widely published physicians in America, is not just theorizing. He is actually treating COVID patients at home.

Dr. McCullough's recommendation would clearly save lives using cheap, safe, FDA-approved medicines – hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) with azithromycin or doxycycline, possibly ivermectin or colchicine, inhaled budesomide or oral steroids, home oxygen concentrators, plus supplemental zinc, vitamin C and vitamin D.

The supply of HCQ has been ramped up to handle its use in early treatment of COVID, but we have millions of doses in the Strategic National Stockpile deteriorating in government warehouses – vital medicine that is not being distributed because, for political reasons, doctors are still not prescribing it for COVID-19 outpatients.

Why don't Americans have the freedom to use HCQ as in other countries? The FDA's false narrative about HCQ causing harm to outpatients has led to more deaths with unprecedented restrictions on physicians' off-label prescribing rights imposed by state governors, medical boards and pharmacy boards. Thirty-seven states still restrict HCQ.

There are other major forces pushing against home-based treatment that have resulted in our high death rate. These coordinated efforts are amplified by the mainstream media megaphone perpetuating the constant drumbeat of fear to keep the public afraid of returning to normal activities.

  • The hospital lobby is preventing outpatient treatment to maintain hospital income. The issues raised in Avik Roy's classic 2013 column have been made worse during the COVID-19 pandemic because hospitals receive significantly higher payments for COVID patients, especially those who go on a ventilator.
  • Big Pharma pushes for new high-cost medicines still on patent – for example, Gilead's major push to discredit HCQ and favor remdesivir, its costly experimental drug.
  • Enormous financial conflicts exist within the NIH, CDC and FDA – all of whom get payments from pharmaceutical companies and vaccine manufacturers, as well as income from patents on new vaccine adjuvants and processes. Dr. McCullough's editorial, "The Great Gamble of Covid-19 Vaccine Development," explained this multibillion-dollar financial incentive to preserve vaccine windfall profits in wealthy countries.
  • Big Medicine, as shown clearly by the AMA's actions to falsely malign HCQ, no longer advocates for physicians and patients, but works to protect its revenue from government contracts.
  • Academic medical centers all have research programs dependent on NIH grants. Many academic physicians have been "muzzled" by their institutions from speaking out because of threatened loss of funding.

In contrast, the forces pushing for early, home-based treatment are few in number, smaller and do not have financial clout or a media megaphone.

  • One medical organization, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), has stood against the juggernaut preventing access to HCQ with many efforts, including a lawsuit against FDA.
  • Front-line doctors, primarily independent physicians not employed by hospitals or contracted with insurance companies that dictate treatment protocols doctors are allowed to use.
  • Grassroots citizens groups such as the Tea Party Patriots, Open Texas, America's Black Robe Regiment and a few others.
  • A few national political leaders willing to advocate publicly for early and widespread access to HCQ: President Trump, trade adviser Peter Navarro, Sen. Ron Johnson, Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., and Louie Gohmert, R-Texas.

So what do patients need to do NOW to advocate for early home treatment if they get sick? Here are 10 ACTION STEPS to take:

  1. PRINT Dr. McCullough's article and read about your options before you get sick.
  2. COPY Dr. McCullough's article and give to your doctors and family members.
  3. ASK your doctor now: "If I get sick with COVID, will you treat me at home with medicines already available for off-label use?"
  4. CHECK with your pharmacist: "Will you dispense HCQ if I get sick with COVID and my doctor prescribes it?"
  5. If your doctor and pharmacist will not prescribe or dispense HCQ, start now to explore other options – next four steps.
  6. READ about telemedicine options to see what is available for early intervention and treatment at home.
  7. IDENTIFY the telemedicine services that fit your needs and budget, and keep a list handy in case you get sick.
  8. SEARCH for direct pay primary care medical practices who are more likely to tailor treatment to your individual needs. You need a trusted physician who shares your views.
  9. LOCATE independent pharmacies who will dispense the medicines you need and ship to you – they may be in another state.
  10. ACT to stay healthy! Adequate sleep, exercise preferably outdoors NOT wearing a mask, prayer and meditation (immune boosters!), eat healthy diet avoiding excess sugars and processed foods, take vitamins such as zinc, vitamin C, vitamin D, and immune boosting anti-viral supplements such as quercetin, elderberry, NAC and others.

The bottom line: "If you get COVID-19, you don't want to be admitted to hospital. The death rate for patients sick enough to be admitted is quite high. And you will probably be a prisoner with no visits from family, clergy, or the doctor of your choice. Patients need a trusted physician who shares their views," said Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of AAPS.


Wearing Facial Coverings Can Cause 'Mask Mouth'

 (Press Association via AP Images)

By Lynn Allison    

Dentists and doctors reveal a stinky and serious side effect to the practice. It’s been dubbed “mask mouth” and refers to new oral hygiene issue leading to bad breath, tooth decay and receding gums caused by the constant usage of facial coverings.

“We’re seeing inflammation in people’s gums that have been healthy forever, and cavities in people who have never had them before,” Dr. Rob Ramondi, co-founder of Manhattan Dental, told the New York Post. “About 50% of our patients have been impacted by this, so we decided to name it ‘mask mouth’— after ‘meth mouth,’”

Methamphetamine addicts often neglect their dental hygiene and land up with cracked and stained teeth and teeth grinding prompting dentists to coin the term “meth mouth.”

Mask mouth can be serious, say experts, who point out periodontal disease can increase your risk of heart attacks and strokes, according to the Post. Wearing a mask reduces the amount of saliva in the mouth which helps fight bacteria and cleans your teeth, preventing tooth decay and gum disease. Dry mouth from lack of saliva can be prevented by drinking more water, cutting down on caffeine, using a tongue scraper and an alcohol-free mouthwash.

Why Does Fauci Hold Patents on a Key HIV Component Used to Create COVID-19

image from corsination.com

Why does Dr. Anthony Fauci’s name appear on 4 U.S. patents for a key glycoprotein that appears to have been inserted into a SARS virus chassis to create the current COVID-19 epidemic?

The legal portal Justia.com lists the following “patents by inventor Anthony S. Fauci” involving a glycoprotein found in the HIV-1, a disease that attacks the human immune system, leading to the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, more commonly known as AIDS.  In 1990, Fauci held the same position at the NIH that he holds today. Fauci made his mark around the anti-viral medications that were developed by Big Pharma to combat the AIDS epidemic raging at that time.

This same glycoprotein, identified as Glycoprotein 120, or simply as GP120, has also been found to be a key component of the current COVID-19, a disease that appears to combine a HIV-1 attack on the human immune system, with SARS CoV-1, the pathogen from the original SARS (“Severe Acute Respiratory System”) that created an international pandemic in 2002-2003.  The pathogen in COVID-19 is named SARS CoV-2 in medical scientific literature.

The four patents on which Fauci is named as an inventor are the following:

  • Patent Number: 9896509, patent granted August 3, 2016. “Use of antagonists of the interaction between HIV120 and ?4?7 integrin.
  • Publication Number: 20160333309, patent application filed August 3, 2016. “Use of Antagonists of the Interaction Between HIV GP120 and A4B7 Integrin.
  • Patent Number: 9441041, patent granted September 13, 2016. “Use of antagonists between HIV GP120 and ?4?7 integrin.”
  • Publication Number 2016007586, patent application filed September 21, 2015. “Use of antagonists of the Interaction Between HIV GP120 and A4B7 Integrin.”

Honeybee venom contains chemical that kills breast-cancer cells in minutes

(STUDY FINDS) -- NEDLANDS, Australia — A groundbreaking discovery in Australia is giving new meaning to the term natural remedy. Using hundreds of honeybees, a new study reveals the venom in these insects’ stingers quickly kills breast cancer cells.

Dr. Ciara Duffy says honeybee venom destroys multiple types of breast cancer, even the hard to treat triple-negative variety. Her study in the journal npj Precision Oncology finds the venom not only eradicates these cancers, it also breaks up a cancerous cell’s ability to reproduce. It also contains a compound called melittin which researchers say helps this natural remedy stop the disease with remarkable speed.

“The venom was extremely potent,” the researcher from the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research says in a media release. “We found that melittin can completely destroy cancer cell membranes within 60 minutes.”

There comes a time to stop listening to widely recognized and even renowned “experts.” We may be well past that time where the coronavirus is concerned.

For quite some time, the “experts” have flubbed testing protocols and collecting and disseminating data. But a new article in The New York Times calls into question much more of what we have been told about the severity of the pandemic.

What if, more than five months into this crisis, we only had 1.8 million or so confirmed cases instead of 6.1 million? Or what if we only had about 600,000 instead of the 6.1 million?


Medical expert: 'Told you so' about lockdowns being a mistake

A Stanford epidemiologist declared back in March it was a mistake to implement mass, long-term lockdowns against COVID-19, warning of unintended social harms.

Now, Dr. John Ioannidis says it provides him no satisfaction to see that borne out.

In an article in March for STAT, he wrote "we don’t know how long social distancing measures and lockdowns can be maintained without major consequences to the economy, society, and mental health."

"Unpredictable evolutions may ensue, including financial crisis, unrest, civil strife, war, and a meltdown of the social fabric."

Over the weekend, in an interview with the Greek Reporter, he noted unemployment numbers matched only by the Great Depression, business closures from small to large, drug abuse and suicide spikes, and social unrest.

Soylent Green is made from PEOPLE! And so are many Vaccines!

By Bob Barney

image from fc01.deviantart.netMany of us remember Charlton Heston yelling to the crowd in a futuristic society (actually only 2022- 8 years away) ( "You've got to warn everyone and tell them! Soylent Green is made of people!" The plot goes like this: Earth is overpopulated and totally polluted; the natural resources have been exhausted and the nourishment of the population is provided by huge big corporation called Soylent Industries. They are a company that makes a food consisting of harmless, and nutritious plankton from the oceans, or so they say. Natural food like fruits, vegetables, and meat among others have become extinct. Earth is overpopulated and New York City has 40 million starving, poverty stricken people. The only way humanity can survive is by eating a mysterious food called Soylent Green. A detective, played by Heston, investigates the murder of the president of the multinational giant corporation. You know, the Halliburton of the day. The truth he uncovers is more disturbing than the Earth in turmoil when he learns the secret ingredient of Soylent Green. It's people!

Thank God that the story is only science fiction... Or is it?

Most are not aware that around the world, many vaccines are made from aborted babies! In order to promote a better life, we use the bodies of sacrificed babies, while we scoff at Bible versus which predicts child sacrifice in our day! Most smugly deny that we are like the pagan cultures of the past. We are modern, people proclaim, we don't believe in heathen cultures. Really? Are we that much different.

How many people would choose a drug to save them from a rare illness, if the cost to buy the medicine was the life of one of our children? We we trade our life, for that of our children? No you say, right?

WRONG! The Plain Truth is many vaccines made in the world today are made from aborted babies. How many of us are aware of this fact? Where you? Would that change your opinion of the vaccine industry?

'Love hormone' oxytocin can reverse aging processes that lead to osteoporosis

(STUDY FINDS) -- SÃO PAULO, Brazil – Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones become less dense and can break easily as we age. A new study finds the answer to avoiding brittle bones may be more love. Researchers at São Paulo State University (UNESP) in Brazil suggest that oxytocin, the so-called “love hormone” known for its role in affection and bonding, can reverse age-related changes that lead to people developing osteoporosis.

Throughout our lives, our bones are constantly remodeling. When we’re younger, the body is able to maintain a healthy balance between removing old bone and forming new ones. As we get older however, our bodies become less efficient at maintaining this balance. This is what can lead to losses in bone mass and density eventually bringing on this condition.

Key Ingredient in COVID-19 Vaccines Horrifies Conservatives, Christians

Vaccine

It’s no wonder unborn baby parts are big business among the crowd with questionable ethics — they’re useful for so many things, including creating vaccines for diseases like the novel coronavirus.

When Planned Parenthood was exposed for selling body parts in 2015, it seemed like a macabre, hyperbolic parody of the abortion giant, but the fact is that cells from aborted babies have been harvested and used for decades.

According to the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University, existing vaccines for hepatitis A, chickenpox, smallpox, measles, rubella, rabies, poliomyelitis are all made using a cell line from fetuses aborted long ago.

COVID-19 patient was black and paralyzed, so doctors decided his life wasn’t worth saving

This is what your liberal government really is - DEATH!  Cuomo killed tens of thousands, along with the rest of the evil Democrat leaders. Like in this case their intent was to KILL!

image from i.pinimg.com

Last month, a disabled, 46-year-old African American man was euthanized without his consent or that of his wife. But rather than exploding amid our racial-justice moment, the story hardly yielded a peep from those who control our national discourse.

In 2017, Michael Hickson suffered a brain injury that left him paralyzed. Still, he was able to enjoy many activities: having books read to him, listening to music, answering trivia questions. He had memory problems, but he recalled his birthday and Social Security number with ease. Michael was leading the kind of life many people with disabilities do: not without difficulties but intrinsically valuable and dignified.

Then Michael contracted COVID-19 and was admitted to St. David’s Medical Center of South Austin, Texas. A disagreement over his care led to medical decision-making being taken away from his wife and given to the state and his medical team.

Michael didn’t do well and needed intensive care. His wife, Melissa, apparently did not trust his medical team and decided to (legally) record the exchange she had with her husband’s doctor.

As the recording shows, they agreed that Michael should not be intubated, but Melissa still wanted Michael to be treated aggressively. The doctor insisted aggressive treatment wouldn’t “help him improve” and “right now, his quality of life . . . he doesn’t have much of one.”

Melissa was taken aback: “What do you mean?” she asked. “Because he’s paralyzed with a brain injury, he doesn’t have quality of life?”

“Correct,” the doctor flatly replied.

Pressed further by Melissa, who admirably kept her cool, the doctor admitted he’d had three patients survive who were in Michael’s situation but claimed her husband’s case “doesn’t fit those three.”

Michael’s “quality of life is different from theirs,” she was told. The others “were walking and talking people.”

Melissa tried to respond, but the doctor had had enough. “I don’t mean to be frank or abrasive, but at this point, we are going to do what we feel is best for him along with the state, and this is what we decided.”

Melissa did get in one last shot by telling him that this was a decision to kill her husband. And she had good reason to think so: Giving her husband food, water, oxygen and medicine would have not been burdensome treatment. And Michael may have beaten the odds.

The hospital had plenty of space for him. The issue, the doctor made clear, was Michael’s disability. The state and the hospital decided that they shouldn’t try to save someone with his disabilities.

After pro-life journalists broke the story on June 26, the National Council on Disability publicly called on the federal Office of Civil Rights at the Department of Health and Human Services to investigate the hospital for violating Michael’s civil rights.

“When a medical facility makes a decision to deny medical care to a person with a disability that is based on, or influenced by, biased views about life with a disability, it runs afoul of federal civil rights laws,” the group said.

Yet when the Washington Post, a paper otherwise all in on outing structural racism, picked up the story, it framed Melissa’s claims skeptically and credulously accepted the hospital’s word that “it wasn’t possible to save” Michael and that none of its decisions was made on the basis of his disability.

Sorry, but the recording was clear: An ­institution with power over Michael’s very life had deemed it a life unworthy of life.

Owing to structural health disparities, many African Americans have a justified fear of being treated like “throwaway people” in a clinical setting, particularly when it comes to so-called “end-of-life” decisions.

And because doctors are often ableist in their assumptions, the vulnerability of African American patients are magnified when they are disabled. Health providers consistently rate the quality of life of their disabled patients worse than the patients themselves.

When confronted with the fact that patients generally prefer length of life to quality of life, many physicians find themselves “surprised” and admit: “We think we know what is best for a patient, but this is often wrong.” It’s appalling.

If you care about racial justice, remember Michael Hickson. Say his name. Tell his story.

Now Dictator Fauci blames anti-vaxers

1(LONDON GUARDIAN) The US is “unlikely” to achieve herd immunity to the coronavirus even with a vaccine, according to the country’s leading public health expert, who warned that a “general anti-science, anti-authority, anti-vaccine feeling” is likely to thwart vaccination efforts.

In an interview with CNN, Dr Anthony Fauci also said people not wearing masks was “a recipe for disaster” and said of the Trump administration’s attempts at contact tracing: “I don’t think we’re doing very well.”

The US reported a record number of new coronavirus cases in a single day on Friday, with 36 states reporting a rise in infections and Texas, Florida and Arizona particularly badly hit. With more than 2.5m coronavirus cases and more than 125,000 deaths, the US accounts for about 25% of all coronavirus cases and deaths worldwide.

BIG PHARMA, FORCED VACCINATIONS & POPULATION CONTROL

By Bob Barney

image from www.kindredmedia.orgIn 1986, The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was established to protect the Vaccine manufacturers from any liabilities.

This program insured that the taxpayer would pay for all injuries the public suffered from Vaccines.

Once this protection was set in place, the government took control of the vaccine industry and Big Pharma profits increased by over 600%.

Is it all about money? Or is there something more nefarious at play?

We are witnessing today of the end of American Freedom.  Forcing people to wear masks, is just a start to the end of America, a prediction God made 3,000 years ago would happen.

Vaccines are next. You will be mandated to accept vaccinations, or you will not be able to buy or sell.  Vaccines, made from ABORTED BABY PARTS, is like a mark of the beast, which the Bible says one will not be able to buy or sell (or work) unless they receive this mark....  Interesting in that even TRUMP wants to force a mandated vaccine on all Americans when one becomes available...

How true will you stay with your God????  Just a question!

 

Stand up for God. Stand up for America- WE ARE LOST ISRAEL!

Shocker: comparing deaths from medical drugs, vitamins, all US wars

In this time of worrying about bad policemen who kill maybe 70 unarmed people (all races) per year, how about doctors who kill hundreds of thousands?

People want to believe medical science gives us, at any given moment, the best of all possible worlds.

And of course, the best of all possible worlds must have its enemies: the quacks who sell unproven snake oil.

So let’s look at some facts.

As I’ve been documenting for years, the medical cartel has been engaged in massive criminal fraud, presenting their drugs as safe and effective across the board—when, in fact, these drugs have been killing and maiming huge numbers of people, like clockwork.

I’ve cited the review, “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?”, by Dr. Barbara Starfied (Journal of the American Medical Association, July 26, 2000), in which Starfield reveals the American medical system kills 225,000 people per year—106,000 as a direct result of pharmaceutical drugs.

I’ve now found another study, published in the same Journal, two years earlier: April 15, 1998; “Incidence of Adverse Drug Reactions in Hospitalized Patients.” It, too, is mind-boggling.

Coronavirus Affects Cancer Care

As we have been warning, the consequences of this FAKE pandemic (it's a bad flu season type event, with deaths far over-exaggerated) will kill literally MILLIONS!  Our government wants us dead!- Fight back America

While COVID-19 has disrupted everyone’s life, cancer patients have been severely impacted. Nearly 17 million people in the U.S. are living with cancer and the coronavirus has affected their care and treatment as well as their personal health. Patients having radiation or chemotherapy have lowered immune systems and must avoid viral infections so that they aren’t battling two potentially deadly diseases.

According to TIME, studies of cancer patients who become infected with the coronavirus suggest that the death rate of cancer patients from the disease is up to 28% higher than those without cancer. Experts also fear that the pandemic could impact cancer death rates in the future as many people skip or delay their treatments and others are too terrified to see their doctors for routine tests for early detection.

Cancer centers across the country have modified treatment options to protect both patients and staff from infection. In many centers, that means visitors are not allowed to accompany patients and that any care that could be provided virtually has been moved to video or telemedicine.Read Newsmax: Coronavirus Affects Cancer Care | Newsmax.com

From CDC Website: Hospitals to List COVID-19 as Cause of Death Even if It’s “Assumed "

NO TESTING REQUIRED!

“COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death,” CDC guidelines issued March 24 read. “Certifiers should include as much detail as possible based on their knowledge of the case, medical records, laboratory testing, etc.,” the guidance continued.

“If the decedent had other chronic conditions such as COPD or asthma that may have also contributed, these conditions can be reported in Part II.”

The Coronavirus crisis took the US by storm, spiking unemployment and crashing the stock market virtually over night.

The media is bombarding Americans around the clock with updates on the death count, highlighting death maps and scaring people into staying home.

Governors are forcing small businesses to shut down and threatening to jail anyone who violates their authoritarian social distancing orders.

The media hysteria is based on a Bill Gates-funded IHME Coronavirus model that has been proven to be way off.

All COVID vaccines using aborted-baby stem cells, group warns

image from www.wnd.comAs the Trump administration expresses optimism about the development of a vaccine for the coronvirus, a religious-liberty group is warning that the top vaccines under development are made with "aborted baby cell lines."

The vaccines are not from aborted fetuses but from aborted baby cell lines used by researchers, says Liberty Counsel, which is running a campaign urging members of Congress and governors to oppose a government plan to force vaccinations.

"As an American citizen who loves my country, my Constitution and my right to refuse forced vaccinations, I urge you to end all consideration of mandatory vaccinations," Liberty Counsel says.

WHAT GOES INTO A VACCINE?

WHAT GOES INTO A VACCINE?  Just SOME of the chemicals (not counting the Fetal tissue and cells) Just remember this when the Feds demand U get a shot!

FROM: https://www.publichealth.org/public-awareness/understanding-vaccines/goes-vaccine/

VaccineAside from antigens, ingredient components of a vaccine include adjuvants, added to enhance the immune system response; antibiotics, to prevent contamination during the manufacturing process; and preservatives and stabilizers.

These additional ingredients are often a source of concern for wary parents and patients. Below is a list of common ingredients in many vaccines, along with information on their purpose and safety.

Thimerosal (ethylmercury)

  • Why is it used? This mercury-containing ingredient has been used as a preservative in vaccines since the 1930s. Today, it is only found in vaccines for influenza. Preservatives are necessary for preventing dangerous bacterial or fungal contamination, but thimerosal has since become a major source of vaccine safety concerns.
  • Health concerns? While mercury is a naturally-occurring element found in soil, water, and food, large amounts of it can be harmful, especially for children. Back in 1997, children were receiving three vaccines that together contained more mercury than the EPA recommended limit (though not more than the FDA limit). This led to speculation that thimerosal in vaccines could be linked to autism or other conditions.
  • Is it safe? Years of research have reduced concerns here. The type of mercury found in thimerosal, ethylmercury, differs from methylmercury, the type commonly found in fish and known to be harmful in large amounts. Ethylmercury is broken down and excreted from the body much more quickly than methylmercury, and no scientific study has found a link between ethylmercury and autism or any other harmful effects.
  • Amount in vaccines? Nonetheless, several public health agencies and vaccine manufacturers agreed in 1999 to cease using thimerosal as a precautionary measure. Today, no vaccine contains Thimerosal except the influenza vaccine, and Thimerosal-free alternatives are available.

Formaldehyde

  • Why is it used? Formaldehyde has been used for decades in vaccines to inactivate viruses and detoxify bacterial toxins, ensuring they don’t result in sickness when injected.
  • Health concerns? The U.S. EPA classifies formaldehyde as a carcinogen, as does the International Agency for Cancer Research and the National Toxicology Program. Additionally, several studies have since linked strong, long-term formaldehyde exposure to certain types of cancer.
  • Is it safe? The potential for harm depends on the amount. Formaldehyde is always present in the human body as part of our natural metabolic process, but long-term exposure to high amounts can overwhelm our system and be harmful. Fortunately, the amount of formaldehyde found in vaccines is very small, most of it being diluted down to residual amounts during the manufacturing process. In fact, the FDA reportsthere is 50 to 70 times more formaldehyde present in an average newborn’s body than in a single dose of vaccine. In brief, current science shows formaldehyde in vaccines to be harmless.
  • Amount in vaccines? The highest amount of formaldehyde present in any vaccine is .02 mg per dose. An average two-month-old baby would have around 1.1 mg of formaldehyde circulating in their body, with higher naturally-occurring amounts for older children.

Aluminum

  • Why is it used? Aluminum is used as an adjuvant in vaccines. That is, it makes them more effective by strengthening the immune system response. Thanks to adjuvants, people need fewer doses of vaccine to build immunity.
  • Health concerns? Sometimes the mention of aluminum in vaccines makes parents uneasy; that’s because there has been some evidence that long-term exposure to high amounts of aluminum can contribute to brain and bone disease. However, aluminum is naturally present in water, foods, even breast milk. Aluminum has only been shown to harm people if absorbed in very high amounts and when a person’s kidneys aren’t working properly. In contrast, the amount of aluminum in vaccines is negligible.
  • Is it safe? Aluminum is the third most common naturally-occurring element, after oxygen and silicon. It is found in plants, soil, air, and water. A breast-fed infant will naturally ingest around 7 milligrams of aluminum in her diet throughout the first six months of her life. In contrast, the standard vaccines administered over the first six months of an infant’s life contain an average of just 4.4 milligrams of aluminum. Aluminum has been used safely for over six decades in vaccines, with no scientific evidence indicating otherwise.
  • Amount in vaccines? The amount of aluminum in vaccines is tiny. In fact, babies always have a small naturally occurring amount of aluminum in their bloodstreams, about 5 nanograms. The quantity of aluminum in a vaccine is so small it doesn’t cause any noticeable raise in this base amount found in the blood, even immediately after an injection.

Antibiotics

  • Why are they used? During the production process of some vaccines, antibiotics may be used to counter the risk of dangerous bacterial infection.
  • Health concerns? Concern occasionally arises about antibiotics in vaccines because of the risk of allergic reactions in some children.
  • Is it safe? These fears are greatly exaggerated. Vaccine manufacturers only use antibiotics that are far less likely to provoke a reaction, and because antibiotics are only used during production, they are reduced to trace or undetectable amounts in the final product. In fact, no allergic reaction to a vaccine has ever been traced back to antibiotics. The overall odds a child will suffer from a severe allergic reaction from an MMR or Hepatitis B vaccine, from any ingredient, is 1 in 1,000,000, one hundred times less than the 1 in 10,000 chance a child will be struck by lightning.
  • Amount in vaccines? During the purification steps of the production process, antibiotics are removed, resulting in miniscule or undetectable amounts in the final vaccine.

Gelatin

  • Why is it used? Gelatin is used as a preservative and stabilizer, keeping vaccines effective under heat or cold and for the duration of their shelf life.
  • Health concerns? For a very small number of children, gelatin can cause an allergic reaction.
  • Is it safe? While gelatin is the single largest identifiable source of severe allergic reactions from vaccines, the incidence rate is still incredibly small. There is about one case of anaphylaxis caused by gelatin in vaccines for every two million injections.
  • Amount in vaccines? The amount of gelatin varies by vaccine, with the MMR vaccine on the high end, containing 14.5 mg per dose, and the DTaP on the low end, with only 0.0015 mg. Children with a history of gelatin allergies can seek alternatives or exemptions.

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)

  • Why is it used? Like gelatin, MSG is used as a preservative and stabilizer in some vaccines, keeping them effective through heat, cold, and shelf life.
  • Health concerns? MSG gained a bad reputation starting in the 1960s after anecdotal reports surfaced of nausea, headaches, flushing, or sweating due to food with MSG. As a result, concern has spread about its use in vaccines. However, these concerns are not supported by scientific research.
  • Is it safe? While the scientific community acknowledges that a very small minority of people may suffer from short-term reactions to MSG, decades of research have not found the element to be harmful. As a result, the Food and Drug Administration, the World Health Organization, and the United Nations all declare MSG to be safe. It has been used for decades and continues to be used in foods as a flavor-enhancer.
  • Amount in vaccines? While some websites have trumped up MSG-based alarm, it is only present in two scheduled vaccines, adenovirus and influenza.

Prostate cancer: Urine 'sniff test' may reduce unwarranted biopsies

Researchers developing a urine “sniff test” for prostate cancer believe that, once perfected, their method will help doctors to reduce unwarranted biopsies for diagnosing the disease.

doctor showing patient location of prostate on anatomical modelShare on Pinterest
The researchers believe that once their sniff test is validated, it could be ready for clinical use in a few years and could save thousands of men from having to undergo unnecessary biopsies.

The latest results from their experimental chemical odor test show that 90 percent of urine samples from men with prostate cancer contained a small set of identifiable volatile compounds that were absent in samples from healthy men.

The findings feature at this year’s spring national meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Francisco, CA.

After skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the United States, where around 1 out of every 7 men can expect to be diagnosed with the disease during their lifetime.

The cancer begins in cells of the prostate – a male gland that makes a thick fluid that is added to semen and is situated in front of the rectum and below the bladder.

Semen and urine travel through the center of the prostate (using a tube called the urethra) to exit the body via the penis. Some of the urinary and sexual symptoms of prostate cancer – and noncancerous conditions such as inflamed and enlarged prostate – arise because the swollen gland squeezes this channel.

While early detection is one of the most important factors in helping men to survive prostate cancer, diagnosis is not straightforward. It usually relies on a combination of a digital rectal exam and a blood test to measure prostate-specific antigen (PSA) to help decide whether a biopsy should be done.

The plague that killed 200 million

As world worries about coronavirus, archaeologists find mass grave of 48 victims of the Black Death victims that decimated Europe

It has been over 650 years since the Black Death spread through Europe, but archaeologist are still finding haunting reminders of its rampage. A mass grave of 48 skeletons was recently discovered at the site of a 14th century monastery hospital at Thornton Abbey, Lincolnshire

A new reminder of the Black Death plague that decimated Europe has been unearthed in a Lincolnshire burial site - the remains of dozens of people wiped out 650 years ago.

As the world focuses on the spread of coronavirus, the archaeologists' discoveries shed terrifying new light on the humanitarian disaster that befell the world in the 14th century.

A mass grave containing 48 skeletons, including 27 children, was found on the site of a former monastery hospital at Thornton Abbey. 

Scientists have been working at the site since 2011 but the number of bodies it contains has only recently become clear. 

In addition to the skeletal remains, a Tau Cross pendant was found at the scene that was believed to have treated St. Anthony's fire – a skin condition that made victims feel as if their limbs were on fire.

The Black Death, which ravaged Europe from 1346 to 1353, was caused by a bacterium called Yersinia pestis that can cause several forms of plague and can be transmitted to humans by fleas.

Black rats, which were abundant along trade routes, acted as carriers of the plague when fleas hitched a ride on their backs.

It is estimated, that some 200 million people lost their lives to this horrific plague that spread across Europe and Asia.

The disease is widely thought to have arrived in Europe after being transported from the plains of central Asia via Crimea transported on merchant ships. 

The Black Death is estimated to have killed 30 to 60 per cent of Europe's population and in total, the plague could have reduced the world population from an around 475 million to between 350 to 375 million in the 14th century.

Such a large burial ground at Thornton Abbey suggests the community was all but wiped out by the sheer number of plague victims, scientists said. 

Researchers believe that victims of the Black Death fled the overcrowded cities and overwhelmed hospitals in Lincolnshire, only to die at the abbey and its hospital shortly after arriving. 

Dr Hugh Willmott from the University of Sheffield's Department of Archaeology, has been working on the excavation site in Lincolnshire since 2011.
