By Adela SulimanWashington PostThe Kaiser Family Foundation released a survey Wednesday that found there was a big split between unvaccinated and vaccinated adults in what they perceived as the bigger threat during the pandemic.

Just over half of unvaccinated adults (53 percent) said they believed getting vaccinated posed a bigger risk to their health than getting infected with the coronavirus. “In contrast, an overwhelming majority (88 percent) of vaccinated adults said that getting infected with COVID-19 is a bigger risk to their health than the vaccine,” the report found.

Unvaccinated adults were also much less worried about the more transmissible delta variant and had less confidence in the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines compared with those who got the shots, according to the KFF survey.

The majority of unvaccinated adults (57 percent) also said they thought the news media had “generally exaggerated” the seriousness of the pandemic, compared with 17 percent of vaccinated adults.

As Health Officials, Media Ramp Up Vaccine Coercion, They Scapegoat the Unvaccinated

By  Children’s Health Defense Team

Rather than admit defeat in the face of vaccine failure or vaccine refusal, media and government officials are now openly stoking the fires of hostility toward the unvaccinated.

In the global war on national and individual sovereignty — for which COVID-19 has been serving as the unlawful casus belli — two tactics long favored by tyrants have been deployed by government officials and mainstream media to utmost effect, successfully distracting many citizens from the increasingly aggressive attacks on their civil and human rights and livelihoods.

The first tactic — the sophisticated mobilization of appeals to fear — has steered many individuals into unquestioning compliance with harsh public health authoritarianism. The second — the promotion of divide-and-conquer theatrics — has been instrumental in helping build public support for coercion, including vaccine mandates.

After a brief summer respite, fear-mongering is once again in full swing, with headlines screaming about a “highly contagious mutant version of the coronavirus” (dubbed the “delta variant”) and yet another seeming rise in “cases.”

What is the most obvious reason for the renewed media hysteria? Demand for COVID vaccines has stagnated.

Familiar with the propagandist’s tendency to inflate key numbers, investigative journalist Jon Rappoport suggests the proportion of the population refusing the injections is likely much larger than officials are reporting — and that does not “sit well with the vaccinators-in-charge.”

Moreover, those declining the experimental shots continue to indicate they will not change their mind.

On July 30, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, signaled “the war has changed” after warning “vaccinated people infected with Delta can transmit the virus.”

Two weeks earlier, however, Walensky had a different population in her sights, describing COVID-19 as a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

That comment — and recent remarks by other highly placed figures such as Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey — indicate that rather than admit defeat in the face of vaccine failure or vaccine refusal, officials intend to ratchet up their dangerous divide-and-conquer rhetoric. Taking off the gloves, they are now openly stoking the fires of hostility toward the unvaccinated.

French firefighters’ & hospital unions declare strikes against ‘unconstitutional’ vaccine mandate

RT

Two French unions have called for strikes against the compulsory vaccination of firefighters, healthcare workers, and caregivers. They say the measure violates fundamental rights.

One of the leading French firefighters’ unions, FA/SPP-PATS, which boasts 7,000 members, said it will go on strike starting Monday unless changes are made to the recent law on compulsory vaccination of certain employees.

“The obligatory vaccination of firefighters under [the threat] of penalty violates the constitution,” the union said in a statement.

“Our union does not oppose vaccination,” the organization’s spokesperson, Andre Goretti, told BFM TV. “But the conditions, under which it is being imposed on the professional level, with [the threat of] financial and other sanctions – that’s where we disagree.”

The hospital and caregivers’ union, SUD Sante Sociaux, also called for a strike and protests against the measure which it labelled “a new attack on labor law.”

According to the legislation, which was approved by parliament late last month, firefighters, medical workers, caregivers, and certain soldiers have until September 15 to get vaccinated or face sanctions. The controversial provision containing the vaccination mandate will be examined by the country’s Constitutional Council on Thursday.

The government has been pushing the population to get vaccinated in greater numbers amid the spread of the more contagious Delta variant of the virus.

Starting from August 9, people will be barred from restaurants, cafes, and long-distance transportation unless they have a health pass. The pass is already required for museums, cinemas, and other cultural venues with a capacity of more than 50 people.

These restrictions, along with the vaccination mandate, sparked protests across the country. More than 200,000 people participated in demonstrations across France on Saturday.

A group of uniformed firefighters was seen marching in a protest column in the southern city of Nice on Saturday, where around 6,500 people rallied against the government’s restrictive Covid-19 response.

CNN and Andersen Cooper slapped with $100 million defamation suit over their conspiracy to suppress viable covid treatments

CNN and Andersen Cooper slapped with $100 million defamation suit over their conspiracy to suppress viable covid treatments

By Dr Eddy Betterman

CNN and their nightly propagandist, Anderson Cooper, spent tremendous amounts of time and energy attacking the science on hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and demeaning doctors who cured every single one of their patients using HCQ in their treatment protocols.

Instead of being labeled “anti-science” or “anti-immunity,” CNN continued to mock HCQ and slander doctors who helped their patients recover and achieve natural immunity. Instead of being called out as vile and unempathetic, Andersen Cooper was patted on the back for suppressing treatments, putting patients at risk and mocking doctors who saved lives.

Now CNN is getting hit with one of the most important defamation suits of our time.

Texas doctor sues CNN and Andersen Cooper for $100 million

Dr. Stella Immanuel was one of many honest, hard-working doctors who sought safe and effective treatments for her patients. Dr. Immanuel is from the Rehoboth Medical Center in Houston, Texas. In the early days of treating patients, she successfully treated all 350 of her patients using a simple, antiviral protocol that included HCQ. When she went public with this treatment success and said there’s no need for lockdowns and mask mandates, CNN defamed her and shamelessly tried to destroy her credibility as a doctor. Big Tech also conspired against Dr. Immanuel and America’s Frontline Doctors, censoring her public testimony across all social media platforms.

In order to obtain emergency authorization for experimental coronavirus vaccines, the felonious vaccine makers, Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson NEED there to be zero known treatments for SARS-CoV-2. Dr. Immanuel was one of the doctors who got in Big Pharma’s way and provided a pathway for medical ethics and proper treatment of patients.

In their folly, these pharmaceutical companies and their media acolytes unleashed a vicious defamation and censorship campaign against HCQ and any medical professional who dared speak the truth. When President Trump tweeted a video of Dr. Immanuel, CNN attacked HCQ viciously, using defamation, censorship and politically-motivated ridicule. Now Dr. Immanuel is fighting back against CNN and suing them for $100 million. The suit reaffirms that hydroxychloroquine is “entirely effective” for treating covid.

The suit states: “(Anderson) Cooper and CNN published a series of statements of fact about Dr. Immanuel that injured her reputation and exposed her to public hatred, contempt, ridicule, and financial injury.”

The suit also reveals how CNN and Cooper “juxtaposed a series of facts relating to Dr. Immanuel’s professional medical experience and opinions and her personal religious beliefs so as to imply a connection and create the impression that she was unfit to perform the duties of a licensed medical doctor.”

CNN is “anti-science” misinformation, weaponized against humanity

Dr. Immanuel’s most important allegation against CNN, claims the network “effectively caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands whose lives would have been spared if they had been treated early with HCQ.”

Due to their acts of deceit and defamation, CNN has promoted and encouraged the DEATHS of patients across the United States and around the world. By mocking the treatments that work, CNN is an “anti-science” and “anti-immunity” misinformation source that is weaponized against humanity.

Jefferson vs Hamilton: The Dispute that Led to the Two-Party System and Nearly Caused Civil War

Jefferson versus Hamilton - Brewminate

A Skeptics Guide to American History (2012)

Episode 4 Confusions About Jefferson and Hamilton

Mark Stoler PhD

Film Review

This presentation traces how the bitter political dispute between Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson led to the creation of America’s two-party system – and almost caused civil war.

The two men first clashed when they served in George Washington’s cabinet, where  Jefferson served as Secretary of State and Hamilton Secretary of the Treasury. Their political dispute concerned main areas, the creation of an 80% privately owned (20% government owned) national bank, known as the First Bank of the United States, and the ongoing alliance with France following the French Revolution.

In addition to serving as a depository for import taxes, the First Bank of the United States also had the authority to print bank notes to supplement gold and silver in circulation. Hamilton wanted to create a national bank to help repay the country’s war debts. Jefferson opposed it for two main reasons: first because the US Constitution specifically assigns Congress the power to create money and secondly (which Stoler doesn’t mention) because the vast majority of the bank’s investors were foreign (mainly British). The official ownership breakdown would be 70% foreign investors (see https://www.sjsu.edu/faculty/watkins/BofUS.htm), 10% domestic investors and 20% government.

Jefferson supported an interpretation of the Constitution that assigned states (as per the 10th amendment) all powers not specifically mentioned in the Constitution. Hamilton, in contrast, favored a strong federal government operating in close alliance with wealthy commercial interests (via the national bank).

Hamilton and Jefferson also differed on whether to support the French republic following their revolution. Following the execution of Louis XVI in 1793, numerous European countries (Great Britain, the Holy Roman Empire, Prussia, Russia, and several other monarchies) declared war on France.

As secretary of state, Jefferson believed the US should support the French republic (because he favored republicanism over monarchy, because the French had supported the US colonists during the War of Independence, and because the US had a treaty with France). Hamilton wanted the US to support Britain because he felt trade with the UK was essential for US economic development.

Jefferson also opposed the Jay Treaty* (1794) with the UK, which was extremely unpopular with the American people. Like Jefferson, they feared closer ties with Britain would undermine US independence. Hamilton claimed it was essential to prevent another war with Britain.

The political dispute between Hamilton and Jefferson would give rise to America’s two-party system, with Hamilton and his supporters forming the Federalist Party (1789) and Jefferson and his supporters the Democratic-Republican Party (1792). President John Adams, who supported the Federalist Party, signed the Alien and Sedition Acts in 1798. These were four laws directly primarily against the Democratic-Republican Party.

At the time, most immigrants supported Jefferson’s Democratic-Republican Party. As well as allowing the president to imprison or deport aliens considered “dangerous to the peace and safety of the United States,” the Alien and Sedition Acts (which the Supreme Court later declared unconstitutional) prohibited all speech critical of the federal government. The latter resulted in the prosecution and conviction of many Jeffersonian newspaper owners.

Jefferson and his supporters responded by passing resolutions in the Virginia and Kentucky legislatures declaring the Alien and Sedition Acts unconstitutional. A civil war with northern states was narrowly averted when Jefferson was elected the third president of the US on the Democratic-Republican ticket in 1800.


*Instead of being negotiated by Jefferson, who was Secretary of State, the Jay Treaty was negotiated by John Jay (a federalist like Hamilton), who was Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court. Through this treaty, the British agreed to withdraw their remaining army units from Northwest Territory (all the land west of Pennsylvania, north of the Ohio River, east of the Mississippi River and below the Great Lakes). In return, the US agreed to end the confiscation of British loyalist estates and arbitrate the US-Canadian boundary and the settlement of wartime debts owed to British financiers. It also granted Americans limited rights to trade with British colonies in the Caribbean in exchange for some limits on the American export of cotton.

UK Journalists Allege COVID News Censored to Create ‘One Official Narrative’

In a new video, Russell Brand highlights a group of 26 UK journalists who joined forces to protest the “censorship” and “fear-mongering” on COVID that’s being peddled by the mainstream media and Big Tech.

Do you think you’ve been told the whole truth about the pandemic? Do you think healthy debate and conversation are being encouraged — or stifled?

Russell Brand asks those questions and more in a new video blasting the mainstream media for censoring information on COVID.

Brand points to a group of 26 UK journalists who joined forces to protest the “censorship” and “fear-mongering” they say mainstream media and Big Tech have been peddling since the start of the pandemic.

The group, Holding the Line: Journalists Against COVID Censorship, criticized the media, according to Press Gazette, for not reporting on alternative COVID treatments, vaccine adverse reactions, the true cost of government lockdowns and a lack of scrutiny of PCR testing.

COVID news is being “censored” to create “one official narrative,” the journalists said. One of the group’s members, Tony Gosling, a former BBC radio journalist, told Press Gazette:

“Our main concern is that there’s a very powerful lobby behind many of these COVID measures, including treatment, lack of treatment and vaccines, obviously, but there isn’t much of a lobby in the other direction. And I think most of us feel that our employers of various sorts have not been representing both sides.”

“Stifling healthy conversation and debate” is not a solution, said Brand, who added:

“I’ve always been of the opinion we should be allowed to talk about things and express a variety of opinions. Nobody can claim, from a religious, political or any ideological perspective to have sole exclusive access to truth.”

The journalists said the media’s reporting on COVID in the UK and around the world is “unprecedented.”

The group said:

“There’s only been one official narrative played out in the mainstream media and that has not changed over time.

“There’s only been one ‘scientific truth’ allowed to be discussed: the one endorsed by worldwide governmental regulatory bodies, even that has been very selective. This has given the public a distorted view of the truth which has been highly damaging.”

When Will the COVID Revolt Come? – from American Greatness

The Peasants' Revolt - Seize the Nose Picker! - Torn ...

At some point, there will be a revolt. The longer the arbitrary insanity persists, the more violent the reaction will be.

The most cheerful headline I have seen in weeks was on Glenn Reynolds’ New York Post column: “No, Karen, we’re not masking again.” I hope he is right. I do wonder, though. I have no doubt that the second part of his headline—“A winning GOP message for 2022 [and] beyond”—is correct. At least it’s correct if it is expressed as a conditional: It would be a winning strategy were it adopted. As Reynolds notes, “There is a great deal of pent-up frustration and resentment over the inconvenience, the loss of freedom and the general climate of hectoring that the government’s pandemic response has created.” Indeed. And he’s right, too, that

Avoiding Mandatory Vaccines by Becoming Vegan

We’re all trans vegan now.

By Paul Joseph Watson

Global Research News

After the revelation that half a million vegans in the UK could be prevented from having to take mandatory workplace vaccinations due to their beliefs being protected by employment law, actor Laurence Fox publicly announced that he now identifies as “trans vegan.”

“So-called ethical veganism was ruled to be a protected characteristic at a tribunal last year, meaning employers would risk legal action if they order staff to be vaccinated,” reports the Daily Telegraph.

Workers with other religious beliefs could also cite their status as a protected category in order to avoid employers forcing compulsory jabs.

“Some ethical vegans may disagree with vaccinations on the basis that they will inevitably have been tested on animals. Ethical veganism has previously been found by an [employment tribunal] to amount to a belief, capable of being protected,” said a spokesman for the Lewis Silkin law firm.

Although COVID-19 vaccines don’t contain anything derived from animals, they were tested on animals.

Jeanette Rowley, a rights advocate at the Vegan Society, said she had received around 100 messages from concerned vegans who say “they’re very affected, psychologically, to have to confront this dilemma.”

Actor and anti-lockdown campaigner Laurence Fox responded to the news by proclaiming a new identity that is sure to be shared by countless others.

“From this day forward I self identify as a trans vegan,” he tweeted.

CDC Study on 12- to 17-Year-Olds Who Got Pfizer Vaccine: 397 Reports of Heart Inflammation, 14 Deaths

By  Megan Redshaw

A study released last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed 9,246 adverse events reported among adolescents aged 12 to 17, including 863 serious events, 14 deaths and 397 reports of myocarditis.

In a study published July 30, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) acknowledged nearly 400 reports of children between the ages of 12 and 17 who experienced heart inflammation after receiving the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.

The CDC study also included 14 reports of deaths after vaccination in teens. Among those who died, four were between the ages of 12 and 15, and 10 occurred in 16- to 17-year-olds.

Deaths reviewed by the CDC included two reports of pulmonary embolism, two suicides, two intracranial hemorrhages, one report of heart failure and one rare blood disorder.

The CDC’s corresponding author, Anne M. Hause, Ph.D., said:

“Impressions regarding cause of death did not indicate a pattern suggestive of a causal relationship with vaccination; however, cause of death for some decedents is pending receipt of additional information.”

All deaths were reviewed by CDC physicians and six deaths are pending further analysis. None of the death reports were determined to have been caused by heart inflammation.

Last month, The Defender reported on a 13-year-old boy who, according to a preliminary autopsy, died of myocarditis three days after receiving his second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

Michigan health authorities reported the 13-year-old’s death to the CDC, which said it was investigating. It’s not known if the boy’s death is one of the six still pending investigation by the CDC.
