[Update 2] Frightening Data Point From That FDA Hearing

You definitely want to see Update 2 below.


Holy crap.

Let’s pick out one little point.


FDA Hearing: Doctors and Experts Testify Government Data Demonstrates COVID Shots are Dangerous and May Kill More Than They Save
Myocarditis affected 1 in 1,000 who took the vaccine.


1 in 1,000

Myocarditis in itself can be lethal. It can lead to cardiomyopathy which is deadly. According to a retired RN, the only “cure” is a heart transplant. According to MDs, the five-year morbidity rate for cardiomyopathy is 66% to 77%.

One in a thousand. In the United States. Globally, the annual myocarditis incidence rate is 1.5 in 100,000. The pseudo-vaxxed are 100 times more likely to experience this than the non-vaxxed.

210,700,361 Americans have received at least one dose of pseudo-vaccine. I’m having trouble locating data on how many of those were Pfizer (as opposed to Moderna and Janssenn), but from news reports Pfizer appears to be the plurality. Let’s assume half were Pfizer.

1 in 1,000

10,535,018 “vaxxed. Statistically, that would be 10,5335 cases of myocarditis.

The ’76 swine flu vaccine was withdrawn after a few dozen (53, I think was the official number at the time) cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

We may be in need of an extra 10,000 spare hearts for transplant in the next few years.

And rather pull the Pfizer vax, they debate over whether or not to people more of it. What; in hopes of giving myocarditis to those who missed it on the first two tries?

Update: I finally found the number of Pfizer doses administered.

218,872,070, as of September 16, 2021. The good slightly less worse news is that isn’t 218,872,070 individuals; mostly that appears to be people who got both jabs. But it’s a minimum of 109,436,035 individuals who got at least one (fairly close to my earlier guesstimate). We’re still looking at the potential need for 10,000 more transplant hearts.

I think we’re gonna need Nivenesque organ banks, stocked with serial speeding ticket offenders.

Update 2: My bad. My potential 10,000 spare hearts estimate was a little off. Try 200,000.

Midewest Chick Has Some Thoughts on Fauxci

So here’s a thought or two on new gain of function information and Fauci–dystopian thoughts
Fauci funded gain of function research in Wuhan for an ultra-deadly version of MERS and SARS-like coronaviruses. Like 10,000 times deadlier than what got loose.

But suppose Fauci knew that SOMETHING got loose from the Wuhan lab but didn’t know what since he had several things going there.

And it’s pretty clear that it’s a coronavirus and it’s spreading fast. So he shits his pants thinking he’s busted (I don’t think he really gives a rat’s half eaten ass about deaths)….


I think she nailed it. That immediate state of panic over a coronavirus puzzled me. Government and “health” agencies were predicting levels of lethality far in excess of any seen with any other coronavirus. They were talking about 10+ times the Infection Fatality Rate of SARS, the previous record-holder. That one point was why I didn’t completely blow off the “deliberate bioweapon” speculations. It was as if “they” knew something specific about this virus.

(For what it’s worth, I never subscribed to the bioweapon theory. SARS-CoV-2 might have come from a bioweapon research program, but it’s fatality rate, debilitation, and demographic effects just didn’t fit any bioweapon scenario I could dream up. Unless it was a war on expensive-to-maintain elders and the chronically ill. NY nursing homes seem to support that.)

Yeah, Fauxci knew something was loose, and feared the worst (for his ass, not ours). But by the time they realized it wasn’t one of the Wuhan war strains, governments also realized that the panic was great for controlling the masses.

Maricopa County will finally comply with the router subpoena.

You know, the routers they claimed didn’t exist.

I wonder why that FDA panel voted 16-2 against Pfizer pseudo-vax boosters.

Couldn’t possibly be a safety issue.

The slide link says 16-3. Multiple other reports say 16-2.

Irony Alert: A Rejected Column for a Local Paper

I sent a rather sarcastic letter to the editor for my local rag. It was in the form of a question, which you’ll see below. The following week, they ran another TLE purporting to answer the question. In fact, the writer substituted her own strawman question, and ignored mine.

Our paper only allows one LTE per person every 45 days (unless, as I’ve seen over the years, the person supports the paper’s fairly leftwing agenda), and I wanted to address the issue in more detail than would fit into a 500 word LTE. I wrote a column and offered it to paper gratis.

The editor’s response?

I hope you understand. We have specific criteria for guest columnists, such as having a level of authority or educational expertise that gives that writer a unique perspective. I don’t know your professional background, but if you were a physician or held a PhD in a related discipline, I am assuming you would have made that known by now.

Nope, no PhD.Just several decades of scientific and technical training, applying observation, measurement and testing, mathematical analysis, and problem solving.

Therefore, apparently I am unqualified to cite PhDs, the FDA, and the CDC.

I decided to simply post the column here. Ironically, based on ssite traffic, I should get more readers than if it only appeared in the little T&G weekly.


COVID-19 Masking

Sandy Burch helpfully attempted to set me — and my hypothetical friend — straight on how masks stop the transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Sadly, the question she chose to answer was her own, not mine. (LTE: Reader answers writer’s question about masks, September 16, 2021)

Ms. Burch wisely proclaimed that masks filter down to the 0.3 micron size. That is partially correct. N95-type masks are rated to block 95% of particles and aerosols down to that size. However, while her own friend explained that in terms of Brownian motion and mechanical filtering, that isn’t how N95 masks are so effective at that level. These masks employ an electrostatic effect which actively attracts and traps those small particles. The effect is compromised when the mask is dampened (from wearing it too long, for instance).

My question spoke of the masks most commonly seen on the few people who even bother with masks in this area: procedure/dust masks and cloth masks.

“Can anyone explain how a procedure/dust mask, that passes 4 micron smoke particles, blocks .125 micron aerosolized viruses?” (LTE: Reader seeks assistance on mask questions, September 9, 2021)

As I have personally tested, these masks will pass smoke. Smoke particles are typically 4 microns in size. So my question was how a mask that passes those comparatively large particles magically blocks smaller aerosols.

How much smaller? We have two clues. The first Ms. Burch already provided: N95 masks only block down to 0.3 microns, and are 95% effective. Clearly some are smaller yet.

The second clue is found in “The Mechanism of Breath Aerosol Formation (2009).” Actual measurements of human-exhaled aerosols gave a range of 0.5 to 0.9 microns. But even the smallest 0.5 micron aerosols detected were merely the smallest that the researchers’ equipment was capable of resolving.

Interestingly, the University of Waterloo researchers recently published a paper on how effective differing types of masks are in preventing the transmission of SARS-CoV-2, “Experimental investigation of indoor aerosol dispersion and accumulation in the context of COVID-19: Effects of masks and ventilation (2021).” They gave the following results, and recommended mask use:

R95: 60%
KN95: 46%
Cloth (3-ply): 10%
Surgical: 12%

But there is a slight problem with applying those numbers to COVID-19 as Professor Yarusevycha did. His study used aerosols with an average size of 1 micron. He found that surgical masks are only twelve percent effective at stopping aerosols LARGER than real exhalation aerosols measured by Johnson & Morawska in 2009.

Thus the question of why we should expect these masks to mysteriously work on aerosolized SARS-CoV-2. The CDC says they do. The federal government MANDATES the use of these masks in some settings, as do some states. But no one will explain HOW they somehow work.

The FDA on the other hand is dubious of surgical masks (N95 Respirators, Surgical Masks, Face Masks, and Barrier Face Coverings):N95 Respirators, Surgical Masks, Face Masks, and Barrier Face Coverings

“While a surgical mask may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, a face mask, by design, it does not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted by coughs, sneezes, or certain medical procedures.”

Anecdotally, there is evidence they do not. An individual with whom I am acquainted was diagnosed with COVID-19 last year. She recently ranted about that because she had done everything “they” told her to do: She socially distanced, she isolated in accordance with the lockdown, she wore gloves, washed her hands as often as possible, she used hand sanitizer, and she used disinfectant wipes on surfaces.

And she wore a mask, almost fanatically. None of it worked.

That’s only anecdotal. It could be coincidence. Let us ask the Centers for Disease Control what they found. The CDC helpfully published “Community and Close Contact Exposures Associated with COVID-19 Among Symptomatic Adults ≥18 Years in 11 Outpatient Health Care Facilities — United States, July 2020.”

“Reported use of cloth face covering or mask 14 days before illness onset”
Never: 3.9%
Rarely: 3.9%
Sometimes: 7.2%
Often: 14.4%
Always: 70.6%

If masks work, the CDC should have found reversed results from those. What they found is that people who never wore masks rarely got sick, and that those who DID wear masks accounted the vast majority of COVID-19 cases.

Personally, with two exceptions, I do not bother with a mask, unless I must enter private property where a mask is required. Those exceptions are the smoke test I mentioned earlier, and once when my religiously masking acquaintance visited; I wore it to humor her. And yet, while SARS-CoV-2 — COVID-19 — is known to have been in the wild in the United States for 21 months, I have not had COVID-19.

Based on FACTS from scientific research and provided by the very government that mandates masks, I think that masks are the least effective way of avoiding illness. Good nutrition, decent health (keep your weight down) and proper hygiene (wash your darned hands) will do more than even an N95 mask can do.


Added: I just saw a quite apropos meme.

Yes, I have. You?

Kalifornia, Baby

It seems the state psychiatric hospital legislature psychiatric hospital (had it right the first time) has passed a bill to ban the sale of “small off-road engines.” I understand that the resident of the gubernatorial psych annex is expected to sign it.

But I can’t quite tell if this was the bill’s sponsor author being clever, or if this little detail is just another symptom of his mental illness.

Small off-road engines (SORE), which are used primarily in lawn and garden equipment, emit high levels of air pollutants…
[…]
Currently, there are zero-emission equivalents to all SORE equipment regulated by the State Air Resources Board.

From that, you might think the idiot thinks this is only affecting small stuff like leafblowers, weedeaters, and lawnmowers; all of which admittedly have battery-powered equivalents, The problem is, Kalifornikated already defines small off-road engines.

Small off-road engines (SORE) are spark-ignition engines rated at or below 19 kilowatts. Engines in this category are primarily used for lawn, garden, and other outdoor power equipment.

Golf carts, chainsaws…

Backup generators.

This should go over well during their regularly scheduled rolling blackouts. Did the sponsor mean to eliminate all that? It’s Cal, so he may have

I want to see the zero-emission equivalent to a backup generator. Battery-powered generator? PVC array with batteries (then why have a grid connection)?

For once, I agree with Roger Stone.

RE: The “Jan 6” rally in DC this coming weekend


“It’s a Setup” – Roger Stone Encourages Americans to Stay Away from Saturday’s Rally in DC
This is called agitprop [political propaganda]. I don’t know a single person in the MAGA movement who is going. It’s a setup. Here’s my suggestion. The people who will be there, will all be working for the government. Nice try.

I don’t know a single person who is going. I’m not going. The danger is obvious. There’s so many unanswered questoins about January 6th. Now they’re trying to recreate it.


Agents, CIs, and gullible low-hanging fruit. If any honest and decent people attend, they’ll simply be painted as being as dangerous as the provocateurs.

I really advise not going.

If, IF, you think you should go as a witness, then.

Clearly stand clear of the gathering.

Do not wear political clothing, pins, hats, or carry signs. Especially not pro-Trump (or anti-Biden) stuff.

Be an innocent — and distant — bystander.

Record from a distance. Use zoom, and do not physically approach any action.

If cops tell you to move along, do it; otherwise you become more arrest and media fodder painted as a “insurgent.”

Must. Book. Flight. ASAP.

Back in ’96, I guess, I was driving home from work listening to the news on the radio. There was a short piece about Mickie Ds. The company bragged that… I think they said 70%… that 70% of American workers learned their work ethic pulling minimum wage in their restaurants. As if that was a good thing.

I resolved to leave the planet at the first available opportunity.

Behold The Stupidity Pants.

Yes, they are selling $1,200 (twelve hundred dollars) sweatpants that are designed to make you look too effin’ stupid to pull your pants up.

And the objection to that is that the company is appropriating black cultural.

Count the ways…

1. Stupidity Pants

2. That morons will shell out 1200 benjamins for

3. And think stupidity is something that be should be theirs-and-proud-of-it

CDC Vax Recommendations


COVID-19:
Get Vaccinated Even If You Have Had COVID-19
You should get a COVID-19 vaccine, even if you have already had COVID-19 because:

  • Research has not yet shown how long you are protected from getting COVID-19 again after you recover from COVID-19.
  • Vaccination helps protect you even if you’ve already had COVID-19.

I’d like to see “research” that shows that the human immune system doesn’t maintain the sort of immunity against SARS-CoV-2 that it does for all other viruses.


Chickenpox:
CDC recommends two doses of chickenpox vaccine for children, adolescents, and adults who have never had chickenpox and were never vaccinated. Children are routinely recommended to receive the first dose at 12 through 15 months old and a second dose at 4 through 6 years old.


Huh. If you’ve had chickenpox, you don’t need a vax. Because the human immune system still works years later.

Funny that. Maybe because the varicella jab is a vaccine, and the COVID-19 jab is a “vaccine”. Or how with any other disease, a case is a symptomatic case, but a ChinCOVID case is anything they say it is even with a negative test and you were never sick.

I think it’s time to dump ABC from my news feeds.

Because I need news from this universe, not some weird alternate reality.


COVID-19 cases climbing, wiping out months of progress
COVID-19 deaths and cases in the U.S. have climbed back to levels not seen since last winter, erasing months of progress and potentially bolstering President Joe Biden’s argument for his sweeping new vaccination requirements.


Bull. Even Worldometer, with its artificially inflated data, shows US new daily cases decreasing since August 27, 2021, when it peaked at 196,209; that’s 108,508 lower than the January 8 peak (304,807)

While one-time hot spots like Florida and Louisiana are improving, infection rates are soaring in Kentucky, Georgia and Tennessee, fueled by children now back in school, loose mask restrictions and low vaccination levels.

Soaring in Georgia? Not according to DPH. New daily cases have been declining for three weeks, having peaked August 23 at 8.905. That peak was 1,924 lower than the January 4 peak.

Georgia ChinCOVID daily deaths have been declining since August 19.

COVID hospitalizations? Declining since September 7.

Soaring, my ass, ABC.

(For the curious, yes, I did share my thoughts with one of those alleged “reporters.”)
