CNN Too? Can Weight Loss Help Protect Against Covid?
“We are overwhelmed with the volume of patients that have really made that connection between obesity and Covid and the need for them to get appropriate care,” said Cody Stanford, who is also an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School.

 

Judge Gives FDA Just Over 8 Months to Produce Pfizer’s Safety Data

    CNN still misses vitamin D

    Honestly I didn’t read the CNN article, I just skimmed it.

    Yes, obesity is unhealthy but have we looked at the data for obesity and vitamin D?  Is this largely due to the fact that vitamin D gets sequestered in fat cells so obese people need more vitamin D?

    I also have to wonder how many deaths were caused by the basic physics of caring for an obese individual.  Getting them up and helping them move or putting them in the prone position gets much more difficult.

    Viral load with omicron?

    Preciously it seemed to make sense to isolate within the family away from someone that tested positive to make sure you didn’t overwhelm your body with an initial high viral load.  Is it the same with omicron or would you say, “proceed with family business as usual and let it run its course?”

    thanks!

    nap-facilitated problem solving

    Well now, that's a great article.

    Back in the day, when I was working for this company in SF, whenever I ran into a particularly thorny problem that was causing me trouble, I'd leave my desk, lie down on the sofa in the office, and close my eyes for about 15 minutes.

    People used to make fun of me - "working hard, eh Dave?" - but I swear - every single time I'd come back to my desk with the answer to whatever the thorny problem was.

    Now it turns out, Edison did the same thing!  Who knew?!

    All I was missing were the balls.  Hmm.  That came out wrong.

    CA: COVID-positive nurses = GOOD, unvaxxed COVID-recovered nurses = BAD

    You just can't make this up.  Poor Babylon Bee!  It is practically impossible to do satire when the bureaucrats (empowered by Governor French Laundry - a Bear of Very Little Brain) get there faster.  And better.  And crazier.

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/california-says-covid-positive-health-workers-can-get-back-to-work-amid-shortages_4201840.html

    The California Department of Public Health issued guidance that allows health care networks to enable COVID-19-positive employees to keep working if they don’t show any symptoms.

    Health care workers in the state now don’t have to isolate or show a negative COVID-19 test, the guidance said, before coming back to work if they are asymptomatic. The guidance, which remains in effect until Feb. 1, stipulates that staff wear N95 respirator masks while on the job.

    Health giant Kaiser Permanente suspended more than 2,000 employees who were not vaccinated in October. Other California systems such as Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and Sutter Health also terminated or suspended their employees who weren’t vaccinated in the fall of 2021.

    It comes days after the Newsom administration mandated that booster shots be given to certain health care staffers by Feb. 1. On Friday, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, issued said she would issue a directive for all health care workers in the state if signed off by a public health advocacy board.

    Just incredible.  So glad I don't live in California any longer.

    Bad bad nurses who got COVID, recovered, and are now immune.  You're fired!!

    Good good nurses who have COVID right freaking now - you can still work!  Because - science!   That, and we are short nurses.  "For some unknown reason."

    I hope he’s wrong, but I seriously doubt it.

    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2022/01/09/uncovering-the-corona-narrative-was-everything-carefully-planned-analysis-by-ernst-wolff/#more-256336

    ….The situation in which the digital-financial complex finds itself is between the alternatives of on one side, the final collapse, and on the other side, hyperinflation. So that means the total loss of the value of money. That means historically, we have arrived at the point in which the digital-financial complex, in the framework of the existing system still has the choice between the two various forms of collapse.

    Quite clearly, they have chosen to install a new system. In the background, away from public view, they are preparing a new system, and additionally, they are using the end phase of the present dying system to plunder it using all tricks at their disposal. This is exactly what we have seen since March 2020. The quite deliberate and premeditated destruction of the world economy for the exclusive expansion of the digital-financial complex with simultaneous preparation via the central banks of a new system, and in collaboration with the IT corporations. It is about the complete removal of cash, and banks in their previous form, and the introduction of digital money from central banks.

    The end goal, as it appears, is that we will all have just a single account through which all transactions run. This account will not reside in a business bank, but with the central bank. The background to this plan is the following: Digital central bank money is programmable, and because central banks can create unlimited money out of nothing, one can indeed operate in this way with negative interest rates. Without having to destroy the system, digital central bank money will allow governments to watch over all transactions made, to assign various tax rates and impose upon individual fines.

    Governments can also place an expiry limit on a part of our money and require that we spend certain amounts with certain time periods, but it can also require the money to be used for specific purposes and require that specific amounts be paid only for certain products, or that they be sourced only from certain regions. Above all, government will be in the position to cancel our ability to make all transactions with a single mouse click. They can shut us down financially. Digital central bank money would be the most efficient tax collection method for society that has ever occurred in the whole history of man—the realization of an all-encompassing dictatorship.

    However, there will be expected resistance from the public or that a large proportion of people won’t accept this form of dis-infringement. The introduction of digital central bank money would be expected to produce huge social unrest, and it is exactly this problem that the digital-financial complex has quite obviously thought about. They won’t try to make the switch to digital currency so quickly, to avoid risking huge resistance. They will do it exactly the other way around. They will drop society into chaos in order to present the introduction of digital central bank money as a solution to all problems, namely, in the form of a universal basic income (UBI).

    We have been experiencing the past 18 months under the pretext of fighting an illness, devastating and irreparable damages have been done to health, economy and finances whose full effects are only beginning to show up so far in traces. But at the same time, work is being done to increase these damages, and in parallel the social rift in society is being systematically deepened. By constantly driving new wedges between people, all of this leads us purposely in one single direction—social unrest to the point of a civil war, and indeed worldwide. This is what the elites want to see. We are experiencing today maximum social chaos, and then at the high point of this chaos, they bring in the universal basic income to affect change—from maximum chaos to maximum control….

    thc i hope he is wrong

    he is not wrong. cbdc's will be the final nail in the coffin.

    no more little kids lemonade stands, no more cash tips, no more privacy,

    no more kid down the block mowing the lawn. or what about those friendly card games, or sports betting?

    you will comply or you will be made financially invisible.

    however there is this clause in the constitution that permits states to issue

    coinage of gold and silver.

    1. No state shall coin money, emit bills of credit, or make any thing but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts. ~ Art. I, sec. 10, cl. 1.

    certain red states might find it more amenable to coin their own "money"

    perhaps states like texas and florida which happen to  be gaining population due to the draconian government overreach.

    the secession movement may be having new life breathed into it.

    there is also a fly in the ointment for the effetes. what about a cbdc that makes it useful to them? transparency. that is a window that works both ways. government spending will be traceable. like where is that 23 trillion missing from the dod? or how does the cia now finance its black ops? i am sure they have been working overtime to work out details like that.

    stay tuned.

    Dr. Pierre Kory on Greg Hunter's USA Watchdog

    Check it out!  Dr. Pierre Kory has been interviewed by Greg Hunter on USA Watchdog.  "Huge Number of Vax Deaths & It’s Getting Worse – Dr. Pierre Kory"

    "World renowned CV19 critical care and pulmonary expert Dr. Pierre Kory says the data is clear the CV19 injections are “not safe, not effective” and shows they are causing a huge number of deaths.  It’s going to get much worse if we don’t stop the shots.  Dr. Kory warns, “They already broke death records with these vaccines almost a year ago.  Now, you are starting to see it in actuarial data with life insurance companies.  The life insurance companies have been paying out claims like they never have before, and they are noticing the deaths cannot be explained by Covid. If you look at the actual morbidity and mortality from the CDC . . . 2019, 2020 and 2021 in the ages of 18 to 64 . . . you’ll see in America, starting in quarter two of the year 2021 (when the vaccines started), the mortalities started to rise, and it rose from 120% above normal to 140% above normal, and it’s far exceeded the death rates in 2020.  The difference in 2020 and 2021, we had covid in both years.  In 2021, we had the vaccines.  They know the amount of deaths they are reporting cannot be explained by Covid. . . . There is something else driving a huge and extremely terrifying mortality signal in the U.S. population.  To think that it is anything but the vaccines, if we get this wrong and if you keep saying they are safe, that line which is already in a significant and steep incline will continue the more we boost and the more we vaccinate. . . . This has to stop.  We have to stop, people are dying.”"

    Thanks Arthur

    37 years ago I saw Zig in Dallas, Texas and it helped to change my life. It has been a while since I have listened to him. He may seem outdated and silly to some these days, but the message still rings true.

    Not a day goes by that each of us would not benefit from a "checkup from the neck up".

    Gold as currency in Oz

    The Australian Constitution says this:

    115. A State shall not coin money, nor make anything but gold and silver coin a legal tender in payment of debts.

    Quite similar to the US Constitution (not surprising; Australia modelled its constitution on the Swiss and US models). Australia in toto is a major gold producer but some states have no mines, so I don't know how that would work out.

    I live in the Australian Capital Territory — it's not a state, and legally is under the control of the feds. No idea if the Constitutional provision would stretch to a Territory making gold and silver coin legal tender.

    Of course, if the Australian federation falls apart, who knows what rules will apply.
