The new mask recommendations are a disgraceful debacle, doomed to fail...againAs soon as politicians, media members and incompetent and terrified “experts” became ideologically committed to ineffective interventions, they could never end.The CDC has been the most reliable and consistent contributor to destructive and functionally useless mask recommendations. They’ve used unconscionably bad, dangerously incompetent and misleading “studies,” along with hilariously useless “hairdresser” examples to “prove” mask efficacy. Finally though, after throwing out their own pre-pandemic planning documents to promote a policy with no demonstrable benefits, the CDC displayed confidence in the “safe and effective” vaccines and removed their useless mask guidelines just two and a half months ago.And yet. It’s all happening. The CDC flip flopped again. Masks are back.Many of us arguing against lockdowns and masks and other related and equally ineffective “mitigations” have been pointing out for months now that the CDC has been unbelievably bad at their literal one job. We’ve been pointing out that the CDC’s credibility has been irreparably damaged based on their demonstrable incompetence and ever changing messaging with unchanging certainty. But no one, and I mean no one, could have foreseen that the death blow to the CDC’s credibility would come from the CDC itself.I guess it shouldn’t be as surprising as it is that they put the final nail in their own coffin, but somehow their devotion to pseudoscience never ceases to amaze.Bringing back masks is the end. It has to be. They were unequivocal in their assertions that the available vaccines were remarkably effective at preventing infections and transmission, symptomatic illness, severe cases and ultimately deaths.Yesterday’s announcement is completely incompatible with their previous statements and should be an inescapable disaster for the country’s trust in “public health” and what the CDC, Fauci and others laughably refer to as “science.”So let’s go over this unfolding debacle!April 1INTELLIGENCER HEADLINE: “CDC Data Suggests Vaccinated Don’t Carry, Can’t Spread Virus”Got that? No hemming and hawing, no uncertainty, no “don’t spread the virus as much,” it literally says that the vaccinated CAN NOT SPREAD THE VIRUS. CAN NOT. It’s not possible for them to spread it, that’s what the “data” says.Here’s a direct quote from the CDC director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky:“Vaccinated people do not carry the virus — they don’t get sick,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC, told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Tuesday. That’s “not just in the clinical trials, but it’s also in real-world data.”They do not carry the virus and do not get sick. Focus on the “they do not carry the virus” part for a second. If vaccinated people can’t carry it, how can they spread it?They can’t! That’s what the CDC says:Walensky was referring to a new CDC study that suggests those fully inoculated with the vaccines produced by Moderna and Pfizer don’t transmit the virus.So naturally,“The authorized vaccines are the key tool that will help bring an end to this devastating pandemic.”They are the key tool. Masks used to be, of course, but now vaccines will end the pandemic. Let’s keep that in mind. ...July 27CNBC Headline: “CDC reverses indoor mask policy, saying fully vaccinated people and kids should wear them indoors”There it is. The destruction of any remaining shreds of credibility the CDC and Fauci had left.So what was the justification for this dramatic shift? The delta variant! The same variant that Fauci said the vaccines did “very well” against. ...

“The overwhelming number of deaths, over 75 percent, occurred in people who had at least four comorbidities. So really these are people who were unwell to begin with.”That declaration by the director of the Centers for Disease Control, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, is one of those fall-out-of-your-chair moments. You’re tempted to repeat it several times just to be sure every syllable is in the right place.Did she mean the deaths of all the people who died of Covid? Seventy-five percent. Or did she mean the people who died with Covid? The preposition, we have learned, matters muchly. “Of” means Covid is the murder weapon. “With” means Colonel Mustard did it with a poker in the library, and Covid was just standing in the corner. Listen carefully to the tape of Walensky on Good Morning America and it sounds like she means “with.” How many people actually died of Covid has been a dark CDC secret from early on. ...Of course, many of us have been skeptical all along about the reported numbers, but the CDC has stalwartly told us, no, things are really bad. What loosens Dr. Walensky’s lips at this point?We are left to wonder. Is it the widespread recognition that the vaccines are not very good at stopping the transmission of the virus? Is it that the boosters administered to people outside the red zone of age and comorbidity are more likely to harm than to protect? Is it that the Great Scare is losing its edge faster than a melting icicle?We can trust that somewhere in the Batcave of the Biden administration a decision has been handed down. Now is the time to cool the Covid hysteria. Word must go out that Omicron is only my head cold.No doubt, weaning people off masks, social distancing and shutdowns will be difficult. Devotion to Faucism has taken root like Chinese bittersweet along our roadsides, choking out the native foliage. The comparison to a salvation cult is too easy to make. By comparison, the salvationist cults I used to study were far more questioning of their premises and closer in spirit to the séance-busting Houdini or doubtful Richard Dawkins than the Fauci-ites are to questioning their master’s pronouncements. My guess is that Fauci will soon be cashing in his reported $350,000 per year federal retirement package — the largest in the history of the federal government.I’d also advise Dr. Walensky to steer clear of the library. She has the quadruple comorbidity of knowing too much, lying too often, panicking too many and reassuring too faintly. At least she shouldn’t go in there with Ron Klain fingering a piece of rope or Jill Biden pinching a hat pin.
CDC Director Walensky Says The CDC Is Changing From "Fully Vaxxed" To "Up To Date," Meaning You'll Have To Get Boosted To Remain "Fully Vaxxed"
Politics have sucked all the air out of the Reason Room. When Biden announced his unconstitutional OSHA “vaxx” mandate, my employer reflexively required me to submit to the vaxx. Though I love my work and the people with whom I work, I told my supervisor that I would never inject this talismanic, experimental, harmful dreck.None of the dozens who come on-site to work their gardens, nor the homeless men who sleep there, are required to jab. Some of the gardeners are Mexican immigrants who speak no English. They tell me that they won’t take la vacuna; they know people who have been hospitalized or died after the shot. No matter the language, word gets around. Though somehow, the word on the street doesn’t seem to reach the nightly news. The street isn’t sponsored by Big Pharma. Yet.Knowing I was threatened with dismissal for declining the vaxx, these normally institution-averse people reached out to administrators to oppose my firing. It was kind of touching.Applying logic to facts, the gardeners criticized the mandatory vaxx policy, especially as applied to my situation. Erstwhile campesinos with almost no schooling are out-thinking university and municipal leaders with advanced degrees, as well as governors, public health “experts,” the American President and seemingly all elected members of his Party.Hmm….While I spent six weeks under under the vaxx mandate Sword of Damocles, I sincerely sought, and eventually received, a religious vaxx exemption.But the exemption was conditioned upon me submitting to a weekly test. Sample collection requires me to generate greenhouse gases by driving to the Student Health Center, where I stand outside and spit into a plastic funnel and tube. Together, this kit probably contains as much plastic as twenty Burger King straws, and millions of the kits are likely disposed each day disposed as medical waste. As are mask mandates, the testing process is environmentally unfriendly. ...Spitting into a tube is revelatory. But it tells you far more about your government’s and media’s abiding untrustworthiness than it tells you about your health. Reliance on testing is yet another obvious sign that the entire “crush the virus” crusade has been a sham. Governments—Democrat politicians, in particular—that have persistently required lockdowns, masks, shots and testing—none of which work—have destroyed their credibility among thinking people. This mistrust should logically and chronologically extend far beyond the Covid overreaction. Nominal Experts, Pharma, news sources and political parties who have lied this often, this obviously and for this long, may—appropriately—never be trusted again.
How the CDC Abandoned Science...Throughout this pandemic, the CDC has been a poor steward of that balance, pushing a series of scientific results that are severely deficient. This research is plagued with classic errors and biases, and does not support the press-released conclusions that often follow. In all cases, the papers are uniquely timed to further political goals and objectives; as such, these papers appear more as propaganda than as science. The CDC’s use of this technique has severely damaged their reputation and helped lead to a growing divide in trust in science by political party. Science now risks entering a death spiral in which it will increasingly fragment into subsidiary verticals of political parties. As a society, we cannot afford to allow this to occur. Impartial, honest appraisal is needed now more than ever, but it is unclear how we can achieve it. ...Once that trust is broken, it’s not easily regained. One way out would be to reduce the CDC’s role in deciding policy, even during a pandemic. Expecting the executive agency tasked with conducting the science itself to also help formulate national policy—which must balance both scientific and political concerns and preferences—has proven a failure, because the temptation to produce flawed or misleading analysis is simply too great. In order to firewall policymaking from science, perhaps scientific agency directors shouldn’t be political appointees at all.

CDC Casually Admits Covid Nose Swabs Ended Up in a Lab for Genomic Sequencing AnalysisBy Cristina LailaPublished February 16, 2022 at 12:50pm
The Hubris of Modern Medicine Caused Billions to Be Injected With "Hidden Genes" in the mRNA Sequences in COVID-19 Vaccines. It's Time We Tell Them We Know.Parts of cryptic genetic code lead to proteins that are almost certainly expressed by cells in the vaccinated along with Spike - with unknown effects. No one has any idea what to do about it now.The past two years have led to a disastrous plummet in the public’s trust of “public health”. According to Dr. Vinay Prasad, the causes includeFlip-flopping on masks within six weeks - and Fauci admitted to lying, for evidently no reason (cloth masks are not used by medical professionals);Masking two year olds, evicting families from airplanes over a two-year old not handling masking;Hypocrisy caught in photos on videos on the importance of masking;Blood clots due to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, downplayed at first, and then merely demoted;Booster mandates, objected to by Gruber & Kraus who resigned over the fact that booster mandates were needed in site of the science showing no long-term benefits;Terrible studies on masks and on health outcomes in kids with COVID-19 compared to vaccination;Financial conflicts of interests throughout public health implicating epidemiologists doing studies to support specific policies. The US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy’s history of receiving $400,000 from Carnival Cruise before his appointment.To these recently pointed to by Dr. Vinay Prasad, I will add:Allowing incorrect and inaccurate calculations of mRNA vaccine efficacy;Implementation of a woefully flawed application of RT-PCR for COVID-19 testing, while reporting zero false positives;Implementing unrealistic and futile control policies re: outdoor events and outdoor dining;Denying instead of addressing the PCR false positive problem;Unwarranted claims on the tissue fates of the spike protein;Silence on the findings of insertion of mRNA spike-encoded reverse transcribed DNA in human cells;Locking down the US and the resulting data showing lockdowns had no effect on the virus;Promotion of studies that claim to show that vaccine-induced immunity is superior to natural immunity;Reliance on non-peer-review “preprints”Reliance on flawed and fraudulent studies allegedly showing no efficacy of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquineReliance on late-COVID-19 studies of treatment options that are not highly profitable;Denial of the science on early treatment with options that are not highly profitable;Implementation of the remdesivir treatment protocol based on an interim analysis published as a press release;The implementation of perverse incentives for COVID-19 cases and COVID-19 deaths after starving hospitals of cash via the 3-month lockdown;Whistleblowers that stepped forward (to Del Bigtree and the Highwire team) reporting willful miscoding of deceased patients with COVID-19;Interference with public discourse via pressure on social media outlets to allow only discussions that match the official narrative;Acting as though the deaths and adverse events reported to VAERS and other systems are not caused by the vaccines.As if those are not reason enough…Now we have yet another reason to no trust public health. The public health agenda caused billions of people around the planet to be injected with the spike-protein encoding RNAs without first determining whether other parts of the RNA might be read as other proteins.
the CDC analysis on pediatric vaccines is pure garbagethis is not public health, it's public harmel gato malo2 min agoone fact in medical care is unarguable:medical interventions are everywhere and always a risk/benefit calculation.this is just bedrock reality. nothing is free. you must always compare that which a treatment will gain you to that which it will cost you. you must weigh risk as well as reward.anyone pushing just reward is lying to you.i could douse you in gasoline and light you on fire. it would reduce your chance of being stung by a bee.seem like a good trade?and the CDC is, yet again, failing to do this or even acknowledge the concept.and as a result, they are selling poison as preventative. again.
In 2009, the largest health care fraud settlement in Department of Justice history was settled. This was the largest criminal fine of any kind imposed in the U.S and the largest ever civil fraud settlement against a pharmaceutical company. At the time. Who is this pharmaceutical company that so egregiously disregarded the laws of this country, regarding bribery and fraud? This campaign endangered patients. They advertised dosages of a drug that the FDA considered dangerous. That company that did all this is Pfizer.So why is it, that when Pfizer executives tell our government now that another booster is needed, when they present an incomplete data set supporting the use of the mRNA vaccines in children - they are not questioned by the main stream media. Maybe because we now know that this media is essentially state sponsored media? The Blaze obtained documents by FOIA documents shows that main stream media has essentially been paid off, when it comes to COVID-19.
The CDC, FDA, and Pfizer/Moderna can produce all the ill-designed studies they want in order to present a case to the public that their vaccines are safe and effective, and if they truly were, there would be no evidence to be found that suggests the contrary.However, evidence to the contrary DOES exist, even if some of it is still circumstantial. It exists in droves, and it’s growing. The “authorities and experts” are desperately trying to close their eyes, stick their fingers in their ears, and hope that if they don’t see it, we won’t either, and it doesn’t exist. Now we find ourselves at this incredibly strange point in time when using our own eyes and ears to make assessments on reality is considered taboo, and in order to break through the censorship wall of acceptance, we must agree with those at the top who have their eyes and ears willfully closed. ...Millions of parents were coerced into vaccinating their children for a disease based on the warnings of severity by the CDC. Now, after countless children have been vaccinated, and within those, countless have been needlessly injured, the CDC drastically changed some of their key metrics used for measuring the severity and hoped no one would notice.As for Pfizer, they hold the title for the largest corporate criminal in history, so we’re all very clear where their priorities lie.
If there were any justice in the world—or at least the executive branch—then the headquarters of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would be evacuated in an orderly fashion, then razed to the ground with dynamite, then paved over with 9-inch thick cement.But we don't live in that world. We live in a world where the CDC gets to drop a bunch of taxpayer change hiring outside consultants to try and restore its own shameful visage...
On July 1, 1946, the Communicable Disease Center (CDC) was founded by a visionary leader in public health, Dr. Joseph Mountin.[ … ]At first, CDC was located on the sixth floor of the Volunteer Building on Peachtree Street, in Atlanta, Georgia, hundreds of miles from Washington, DC and other federal agencies, and deep in the South, once the heart of the malaria zone.[ … ]The agency initially focused on fighting malaria by killing mosquitoes. In fact, the pursuit of malaria was the main focus of CDC. [ … ] DDT, available since 1943, was CDC’s primary weapon against malaria, and the agency’s early challenges included obtaining enough trucks, sprayers, and shovels necessary to wage the war on mosquitoes. Over six and a half million homes were sprayed.
According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), the regulation of DDT began in the 1950s and 1960s because of “mounting evidence of the pesticide’s declining benefits and environmental and toxicological effects”, here. Reuters was unable to corroborate any role the CDC might have played in DDT’s initial use or its later regulation by the federal government. It is likely that the CDC’s policies would be in line with the EPA’s stance since the 1950s, as a fellow government agency.
COVID Affects Your MemoryMasks have never worked. Testing has always been problematic. Kids were never high-risk. The past has never been altered. Welcome to the COVID consensus, circa midterms 2022.When anti-lockdown protests began in the spring of 2020, national media outlets were quick to label the protesters far-right white supremacists whose concerns were the product of “ignorance, privilege, and anti-Black racism.” During this time, playgrounds and beaches were closed, park benches were taped off, and thousands of small businesses permanently shut down. As lockdowns dragged on, drug overdoses rose sharply, schoolchildren were cut off from basic services, and 1 in 4 young people reported suicidal thoughts. Hospital patients died alone, police broke up religious services, and funerals were restricted. Those who believed the costs of lockdowns outweighed any benefits were called “covidiots” and the civil liberties they appealed to were labeled “freedumbs.”The American Civil Liberties Union, which had previously argued against coercive public health measures, was nowhere to be found. The American left, with which I’d always identified because of its claims to uphold workers’ rights and principles of bodily autonomy, now explicitly advocated for forced quarantines of healthy people and for policies that dramatically increased the wealth of the world’s richest at the expense of the working class.
Christian Drosten, Karl Lauterbach try to block the work of a Health Ministry committee set to evaluate the effectiveness of lockdowns, other containment measuresThese are the actions of people with total confidence that all the crazy stuff we've been doing is super effective
