    Joe Rogan and Commander Fravor

    I felt obliged to offer Commander Fravor's story to you. (Commander Fravor was the Navy pilot who captured the tic-tac video)

    It is my contention that without the Bigger Picture our models are wildly inaccurate. It's a bit like peeling an onion, in reverse.

    First Nation People of Canada hiding in the bush.

    In a recent interview, Dr Malone was mentioning that Australia has significant constitutional protections against citizens being forced to take medical treatments.   This has to do with Australia's (white) population being a penal colony that the Brits routinely experimented upon.

    Of course they have similar histories with government treatment with their Indigenous people's as Canada/America too which helped inform those protections.

    But Dr Malone brought this up to express wonder at how Australia has blown past those protections as if they didn't exist.   Ive been wondering how Canada's First Nations would react to whats going on.

    One thing in that video that I noticed was the woman said it was the reserve that was forcing the jab on the people.  So notice, its not Pfizer/Trudeau/Whitey directly doing this.  Those have incentivized the tribal leadership to force it so that there is no appearance of colonialism this time around.

    More fake news?!? Not sure...

    I am seeing reports on various Telegram channels that the Indians fleeing to the bush is fake news. I am not saying it is. I certainly would not put it past the feds.

    Note in Canada Indian reservations fall under federal not provincial jurisdiction. While I am not a lawyer, my understanding is that the federal police force, the RCMP, cover Indian reserves, for those that do not have their own reserve police forces. So it is unlikely Saskatchewan can put their police or special deputies on reserve property. That is not to say they will not try anything, given the autocratic measures being taken.

    On another note, sentiments within the Indigenous population of Canada are already highly inflamed due to historic and ongoing chronic discrimination and injustice. They have previously experienced genocide at the hands of the colonial explorers. They have not forgotten... If there is a shred of validity to this story, it will only fan the flames of anger. Even if not valid, the perceptions, the feelings it engenders, could be a flashpoint that leads to escalation of resistance that will be reminiscent of previous events, such as the Oka Crisis in 1990. Here is a brief excerpt of what happened there:

    To resist the expansion of the Pines Golf Course and the destruction of their burial grounds, the people of Kanesatake united with members of the Kahnawake and Akwesasne communities to construct a barricade which blocked access to this land.[x] As the protestors refused to move, despite various injunctions, the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) was ordered to intervene.[xi] This intervention immediately resulted in violence and aggression as the SQ threw tear gas and concussion grenades on the morning of July 11, 1990 to attack the protestors. It is unclear who fired first, but a gunfight occurred between both sides which resulted in the death of an SQ Corporal Marcel Lemay.[xii] This violence, aggression and loss of life only marked the beginning of the crisis. ....

    I dearly hope it is fake news, just as I dearly hope we will never, ever see this escalate to the point of physically forced injections.

    Canada -- the flow of the virus is west to east because?

    I've noticed that at least the past two waves have begun in BC, then moved to Alberta, then Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and then Ontario. It's a pattern. Because that's how the Spanish Flu moved. Well, the Spanish Flu moved that way because it was spread by Chinese workers who entered Canada in BC and travelled on trains across to the Maritimes to be put on ships to go to dig trenches in the First World War. Umm....I don't see any Chinese workers or west-east trains happening in this pandemic. There is no logical reason for this west-east progression.  Time to update the playbook???

    Fantastic news! Hopefully other AGs follow suit and provide legal end-runs around the establishment medical authorities.

    Drug Patents and Funding Trials

    One of the possible motives for Merck to not support IVM studies is the drug is off-patent and thereby not highly profitable for the developer (Merck). Instead Merck is pushing a similar drug that is under patent.

    Maybe there’s another solution here. Could patent law be amended to support profit for the developer under certain circumstances?  I can see a number of off patent drugs finding value in secondary uses. What if studies examined, say, aspirin? Maybe under pandemic conditions the prescription of a medicine for treatment could be a profitable Avenue? Would that encourage trials to be funded?

    The problem at root is ensuring an incentive for drug research while also not disincentivising trials of low cost alternatives. As a libertarian I don’t want the government killing the profit motive, but I haven’t seen a good free market answer for funding trials of generics and supplements. (That doesn’t mean it’s impossible- I just am not aware of one.) On the other side, big government types oppose profits and want to force drug companies to fund research into areas they favor, which may include generics.

    I’d like to see a free market solution to funding trials of generics as well as supplements, herbs, and other traditional medicines that are currently overlooked in the west because they don’t translate into high-profit pills.

    There is no virus what so ever, no contagion no anything. Spanish flu was caused by a vaccine in the day, just like now. The science clearly shows the 2019 flushot was common to the covid symptoms and a number of science papers back that up. Currently there are over 100 FOIA requests from major health institutions from around the world, they all say there is no virus. Enders 1954 paper clearly says he never actually found any Measles virus, but even if he was not able to say it directly, the control experiment he done absolutely proves all of virology is a scam, as are vaccines which have always been population reductions and eugenics tools.

    Off patent generics

    Why couldn’t Merck or any other drug company just build a high quality, US or EU version of the Ziverdo Kit and just sell it as the one stop early treatment protocol. I would be willing to pay for a doctor’s office visit and a high quality sublingual Vitamin D, C and Zinc pack with Doxycycline and enough IVM for each particular weight class.

    But they won’t, and I don’t think it’s about treating us anymore.

    Also, open up the can of worms that generics can have their prices changed and we will all go broke just treating bronchitis or some other simple ailment.

    Wanna know why?

    Because if you give them an inch on generics…
