Chinese Suppliers to Apple, Nike Shun Xinjiang Workers as U.S. Forced-Labor Ban Looms – Wall Street Journal

Chinese factories that supply Apple Inc. and Nike Inc. and make other products sold in the U.S. are shunning workers from Xinjiang, as Western countries increase scrutiny of forced labor from the remote northwestern region where Beijing has been accused of committing genocide against local ethnic minorities.

Lens Technology Co. Ltd, a Chinese maker of smartphone touch screens and supplier to Apple and other companies, phased out Uyghur factory workers transferred from Xinjiang through a state-backed labor program last year, according to former staff and shop owners near one of its factories. The company has also ceased hiring Uyghur workers, according to current staff.

JP Morgan: US banking giant gives boss ‘special award’ – BBC

Banking giant JP Morgan Chase gave its chief executive a “special award”, potentially worth millions of dollars. The company said the award was to persuade Jamie Dimon to lead it for a “significant number of years” more. The 1.5 million stock appreciation rights, which are like options, will allow him to take a profit if the firm’s share price rises. Mr Dimon is the only sitting boss of a major Wall Street bank who saw it through the 2008 financial crisis.

Environment

Wildfires in the American West, including one burning in Oregon that’s currently the largest in the U.S., are creating hazy skies as far away as New York as the massive infernos spew smoke and ash into the air in columns up to six miles high. Skies over New York City were hazy Tuesday as strong winds blew smoke east from California, Oregon, Montana and other states. Oregon’s Bootleg Fire grew to 606 square miles (1,569 square kilometers) — half the size of Rhode Island.

Climate change: US pushes China to make faster carbon cuts – BBC

US climate envoy John Kerry has called on China to increase the speed and depth of its efforts to cut carbon. Without sufficient emissions reductions by China, Mr Kerry said, the global goal of keeping temperatures under 1.5C was “essentially impossible”. Mr Kerry said he was convinced that China could do more and the US was willing to work closely to secure a reasonable climate future.

Climate friendly cooling tech firm gets $50 mln from Goldman Sachs – Reuters

Chemicals used in air conditioning, freezers and refrigeration have long hurt the environment by destroying the ozone layer and polluting water sources, but technology is starting to change the way we keep cool.

Phononic, a startup based in Durham North Carolina using a material called bismuth telluride to make so-called cooling chips, on Wednesday said it raised $50 million from Goldman Sachs Asset Management.

Health

The COVID green pass — a digital or paper certificate that contains proof of vaccination or of immunity — is scheduled to come into effect next month. Wednesday is seen as a test day for the pass that will be introduced in museums, galleries and cinemas for events exceeding 50 people.

But barely a week after it was announced the scheme is already coming under significant strain. More than 100,000 people, many of them waving anti-vaccination placards, took to the streets to protest against the pass on Sunday, raising fears the pass will become a symbol for dissatisfaction against Macron.

On Monday, the government made several concessions, including lowering fines for noncompliance, pushing back deadlines and changing the rules for shopping centers. The government faces more hurdles ahead as the bill introducing the new measures went to parliament Tuesday. A group of senators has already indicated they will refer the bill to France’s Constitutional Council.

100 Vaccinated Royal Navy Crewmembers Infected With COVID Onboard The HMS Queen Elizabeth Warcraft – International Business Times

About 100 fully vaccinated crewmembers onboard the Royal Navy’s HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier have been infected with COVID-19 as they make their way through a 28-week global deployment tour. The BBC reported the aircraft carrier is leading the Carrier Strike Group that has several other warships accompanying it. The 100 cases of COVID-19 are being managed on the ship, with other ships in the fleet also affected by the virus, the BBC was told.

“You Don’t Know What You’re Talking About” – Frazzled Fauci Erupts After Latest Rand Paul Grilling – ZeroHedge

While there’s apparently room for interpretation, the NIH’s own experts – whom Dr. Fauci said earlier had unanimously rejected the idea that this constituted ‘gain of function’ research – actually agreed that the opposite was the case. It’s just a reminder that Dr. Fauci and other senior public health officials are prioritizing the protection of “the narrative” over “the science”.

Nearly 11,000 Deaths After COVID Vaccines Reported to CDC, as FDA Adds New Warning to J&J Vaccine – Children’s Health Defense

Data released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) included 463,457 reports of injuries and deaths, across all age groups, following COVID vaccines — an increase of more than 25,000 compared with the previous week.

The data comes directly from reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.

    Uighurs will suffer more for this

    Chinese Suppliers to Apple, Nike Shun Xinjiang Workers as U.S. Forced-Labor Ban Looms – Wall Street Journal
    The Uighurs in this region already forced into slave labor will have to endure increasing misery as they will be blamed for the drop in demand. Especially since the slave labor in their products, and more importantly, the image and marketting for those products being tainted. While the Uighurs will work the sweat shops and prison factories producing whatever the Han overlords tell them, the transition from one product to another takes time, and in the interim, those Uighurs are not paying for their food and accomodations with their labor so they will receive fewer rations and probably lose their comforts (like blankets, matresses, shoes and baths).

    So when Nike says they won't use slave labor, do they then instead insist on paying more for the product? More for wages? Insist on better treatment of the people on whose backs the brand has prospered? No. They simply ask for a new factory workers. But hey, as consolation, there WILL be fewer Uighur slaves, since now they will starve or be used for parts rather than labor. Great job Nike very woke.

    Symbolic messenging for the contrarians

    https://cjhopkins.substack.com/p/the-propaganda-war-and-how-to-fight

    ...All right, I can already feel your disappointment. You thought I was going to propose a frontal assault on Klaus Schwab’s secret castle, or a guerilla naval attack on Bill Gates’ yacht. Cathartic as either of those endeavors might be, they would be (a) futile, and (b) suicidal. Frustrating as it has been for all of us, this is still a battle for hearts and minds. Essentially, it is a War on Reality (or between two “realities” if you prefer). It is being fought in people’s heads, not in the streets.

    So, let me try to sell you on this red triangle thing. ...

    Hollow Words and Empty Threats

    Climate change: US pushes China to make faster carbon cuts – BBC
    John Kerry is as toothless as the entire clientelle of a denture factory, and spineless as a jellyfish. He knows, as every company and awake consumer in the world knows, that there is no satiating the demand for goods that China produces without pollution. Not only that, but China knows this too. What incentive do the factory owners have to cut carbon emissions when the government enjoys the wealth and control it has over the pockets of westerners and governments as a result. There is none.

    China currently has a leaking nuclear reactor along the pacific coast in central China. They won't shut it down because they need the power for production. Why then would they care sbout smog? Why would John Kerry, the living embodiment of dry grape nuts cereal, have any impact on their carbon emissions?

    He doesn't. So why these empty words? Virtue signalling. That's it. But maybe if there are enough people viewing China in a negative light, they can make a case for war without too much resistance.

    Maybe. But it still irks me that this toothless bloviation is taken seriously by anyone.

    Cracking down on J&J...

    Nearly 11,000 Deaths After COVID Vaccines Reported to CDC, as FDA Adds New Warning to J&J Vaccine – Children’s Health Defense
    Thank goodness the villainous Jansen and Jansen is being held to account for the 11000 dead Americans reported to the CDC!

    ... oh wait, the majority of those were pfizer and moderna casualties. Are we still ignoring those two for now? Yeah? Okay.

    Nothing to see here folks.

    more insanity

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/insanity-american-academy-pediatrics-pushes-masks-all-children-over-2-years-old-returning-school-daycare/5750711

    The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is now recommending that all children over 2-years-old must wear masks next school year regardless of vaccination status. Students over age 2 and staff should wear face masks regardless of coronavirus vaccination status as “a significant portion of the student population is not yet eligible for vaccines.” (read more)

    A reasonable person might think that with all the evidence showing incredible psychological harm to young people who are becoming increasingly isolated, the AAP would halt their participation in the propaganda. Alas, the opposite is true. This is abusive behavior now. ...

    Scotland death data released

    https://dailyexpose.co.uk/2021/07/20/covid-vaccines-are-killing-people-at-a-79-higher-rate-than-covid-19-in-the-uk-according-to-statistics/

    ...Plus, the vaccines are killing a younger demographic than the virus, which overwhelmingly only killed the very old and already sick.  In particular, the vaccines killed many healthcare workers in their prime.  And the government clearly wants to vaccinate everyone with this deadly “preventative”, including our children.

    The governments are burying vaccine death statistics as hard as they can.  What Public Health Scotland did appears to be an anomaly. I’m not aware of any other government releasing this vital information.  Clearly, the intent is to blame the vaccine deaths on Covid-19, perhaps on a “variant”?

    Please share this information with as many people as you can, before the injection is mandated on everyone, and it’s too late to object.

    "Show me the incentive and I'll show you the outcome"

    https://www.cnbc.com/2021/07/21/johnson-johnson-jnj-earnings-q2-2021.html

    Johnson & Johnson said Wednesday it expects to sell $2.5 billion of its Covid-19 vaccine this year, even as concerns mount over the shot’s effectiveness against the delta variant.

    In releasing its second-quarter financial results, the company also reported earnings and revenue that beat Wall Street’s expectations.

    Here’s how J&J did compared with what Wall Street expected, according to average estimates compiled by Refinitiv:

    • Adjusted EPS: $2.48 per share vs $2.27 expected.
    • Revenue: $23.31 billion vs $22.21 billion expected.

    The company’s share price was up nearly 1% in premarket trading following the report.

    It certainly does seem like they have become the designated scapegoat, while Pfizer and Moderna get a free pass. I’m not clever enough to figure out why that is.  Do any of you have plausible theories?

    Fauci and his NIAID inner circle are named on patents used in the Moderna vaccine. Pfizer holds the patents on the dna sequence for the virus itself but because of NIH funding, the government gets to use that patent however they please... and the government (read Fauci) are invested in Moderna. So Moderna is the golden child, pfizer is the first born, and all the rest are the red headed step children of rented mules. JnJ has enough money to fight back at least, but the rest are niche and villified.

    BC heat wave causes massive crop damage

    https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-07-21-canadian-farmers-report-massive-crop-damage-heat-wave.html

    ...Fruit growers in the province of British Columbia (BC) said the heatwave reportedly “cooked” fruits while still on the branch. BC Fruit Growers Association (BCFGA) President and orchardist Pinder Dhaliwal told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation: “It seems like somebody took a blowtorch to [the fruit] and just singed it.” He described the cherries affected by the heatwave: They became brown in color, with burnt leaves and dry stems.

    According to Dhaliwal, 50 to 70 percent of cherry crops were damaged in the heatwave. He added that apples, apricots and other stone fruits also reported damage – albeit to a lesser degree. “The overall financial impact is going to be great on the farmers,” Dhaliwal said. ...

    Get a big enough dose of IVERMECTIN. Review of meds

    A couple of the IVERMECTIN studies have used low and high doses.

    Too low a dose of IVERMECTIN doesn't work well.  See Vallejo Study referenced by Covid19Crusher here.

    https://twitter.com/Covid19Crusher/status/1412018304047325191/photo/1

    Remember that at least one (small) study demonstrated that Ivermectin was most effective if blood levels got above a specific level.  You have to take a big enough dose.

    I am personally using the FLCCC Alliance recommended "double dose" of 0.4 mg/Kg/day x 5-7 days.  This twice as much as a normal little pony would take.

    If really sick, I would increase my dose to the "triple dose" of 0.6 mg/Kg/day x 5-7 days.

    -----

    A quick review of other stuff that helps:

    The common anti-emetic Zofran (ondansetron) turns out is a serotonin antagonist and shows benefit in COVID.  Any doctor would be happy to prescribe this common medicine for nausea.  Say "I am really nauseated and need a prescription for zofran."

    A more potent inhibitor of serotonin is cyptoheptadine (brand name Periactin) an anti-serotonin/anti-histamine.  This is available from CanadaCloudPharmacy with a prescription, from pet supply stores, and in the USA here.  (Thanks DaveF)

    Anti-androgen blockers (used for enlarged prostate, prostate cancer) also down regulate TMPRSS2 enzyme genes.   TMPRSS2 is a furin-like-enzyme which snips the polybasic (furin) cleavage site benefiting COVID.  Enzalutamide (available in the USA for prostate cancer but costs $3,000--your insurance won't pay for it), Proxalutamide (not available in the USA).  In the USA, finasteride is about as close as we can get.

    The steroid inhaler budesonide (Pulmicort) taken at the beginning of illness is helpful.  (Pulmicort Flexhaler)

    An NSAID like Indocin or Naproxen

    And Melatonin.

    And the basics:  Vitamins D, C, Multi, Zinc, Quercitin

    -----

    Methylprednisolone as soon as O2 saturation begins to fall.  Even small drops signal vasoconstriction in the pulmonary arterioles which is the start of the lung pathology.  (cyproheptadine, claritin, and methylprednisolone needed at this stage.)

    If a person is getting sicker or is a high risk patient, a FIASMA class medicine may help.   Fluvoxamine (Luvox) 50 mg twice daily for 14 days. Rx.  Alternatives are other FIASMA class of medicines Prozac, Paxil, amitriptyline, Zoloft, Claritin or Clarinex (desloratadine)

    Other stuff showing benefit:

    Singulair (monteleukast) 10 mg daily.  used for allergy and asthma.

    Pepcid (famotidine) 40-60 mg daily.  OTC

    Bromhexine (found on ebay)

    BYU denies vaccine exemption for student with autoimmune disorder

    https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/brigham-young-university-denies-vaccine-exemption-for-student-with-autoimmune-disorder

    LAIE, Hawaii, July 19, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) - A university student has been denied entry into Brigham Young University-Hawaii (BYU) because she cannot take the COVID-19 vaccine as a result of a potentially vaccine-induced condition.

    In June, BYU in Hawaii mandated the COVID-19 vaccine for all students and staff. One student, Olivia Sandor, appealed for a medical exemption because she suffers from Guillain-Barre syndrome, an autoimmune disease affecting the nervous system, which can be triggered by vaccination.

    Sandor says in a July 13 Instagram post that she was paralyzed from the waist down after taking an influenza vaccine in 2019. She eventually regained her ability to walk; however, her doctors have warned her that taking another vaccine could result in permanent paralysis or death…

    Thanks 0655,

    Question:  With new medications 2nd stage clinical trials are conducted at various dose levels.  To determine the safe levels the body can tolerate.  The mRNA "vaccines" cause the body to produce spike proteins to stimulate the immune system.  The amount of these spikes can vary greatly depending on location and individual production capacity.  So how do you control the production to a safe limit?  What would be a safe limit on production of spike proteins?

    Poll numbers

    Thanks for posting those. They are mostly encouraging.  However, the relatively high number of young people who believe the vaccines should be mandatory does not bode well for the future.

    When did young adults become so pro-authority?  Just a generation ago they were the exact opposite!
