Best of: A Note of Thanks

Note of thanksGood morning! Below is a BEST OF by Cathy, who has the day off.

By Cathy Jameson

I couldn’t find the right words last week. Today, I feel like I’ve found my voice again.

In reflecting on a few things that had me feeling so down in the dumps earlier, a few people came to mind: the pro-vaccine crowd, the CDC, the mainstream media and some doctors and their medical staff. When those folks crossed my mind, I let them and their negativity invade my thoughts. I wouldn’t be here without them though, so I thought it time to say thank you to those folks. Yes. A thank you. I want to express my gratitude for their contributions, especially their latest ones.

---

To the Pro-Vaccine Crowd who continues to add insult to injury (vaccine injury, that is), thank you! Really. I want to thank you for every new Vaccines Are Safe blog, article, interview, FB comment and social media message you share. Why? Well, for some new parents, and for those parents who are on the fence about vaccines, your words spark a question. They’re asking, “Are vaccines really all that safe?” That questions leads to a search. That search turns into a discovery. That discovery reveals a story—a story of a child with an unfortunate vaccine injury. As they read that story, a seed is planted—a seed of doubt. Why doubt? Because you, the pro-vaccine crowd, say the exact opposite, and quite brusquely I might add, of what the vaccine injury story is stating. It’s no wonder that new parents are thinking that maybe vaccines aren’t safe!

It’s through that revelation and that seed of doubt that parents begin to search for further info, info which you, the pro-vaccine crowd, consistently neglects to mention in your pieces. Parents want that information. Where must they turn then to find that info? To other parents, of course!

P.S. That’s where I come in.

Here’s why. When I write, it’s with honesty and it’s peppered with all sorts of undeniable facts. When you write, as a pharma-influenced blogger, writer or newscaster, it’s heartless and glorifies an entity that’s using humans for profit. It’s only right that people hear both sides of a vaccine story—yours, which confuses them, and mine, which is told through the eyes of a former vaccinator who now provides round-the-clock care to a child who was severely affected by vaccines.

Genes Genes the Grant Funding Machines




Hey, Baylor??????   GONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By Anne Dachel

Baylor College School of Medicine in Houston recently announced that their researchers have identified genetic mutations ‘linked to autism.’

This research was covered by KHOU TV Houston in the story, 1 in 54 kids diagnosed with Autism, Baylor researchers studying why.

Actually they aren’t.

I’m sure the grant money for this study came with the stipulation that they stick to the script that autism is a genetic disorder lots of unfortunate children are born with. It’s important that autism busywork like this continues so the public thinks that the medical community cares about autism.

How do I know this?

Everything in the piece is meant to downplay the health and humanitarian disaster that autism represents. Reporter Lauren Talarico provides the blanket definition that understates any of the horrific symptoms children and families have to live with:

Autism is a neuro-developmental disorder. It can affect speech, social interactions and the ability to communicate.

(No mention of parents changing the diapers on their non-verbal young adult son who wears a helmet because he bangs his head on the wall endlessly.)

Likewise there are no words like crisis or epidemic used. Instead Dr. Olivier Lichtarge, professor of molecular and human genetics, uses phrases like ‘a surprisingly large number of children’ to describe two percent of U.S. kids with autism.

While we are told that one in 54 children are now diagnosed with autism, there is not one word about the unstoppable increases that have preceded it: 2004: one in 166, 2007: one in 150, 2009: one in 110, 2012: one in 88, 2014: one in 68, 2018: one in 59, (also in 2018: one in 40 according to a separate study published in JAMA), one in 54, 2020.

Somehow Lichtarge thinks that looking for mutating genes will matter when the rate eventually reaches one in 10, one in 5. 

Lichtarge shows no embarrassment over the complete failure of the scientific/medical community to figure out anything significant about autism despite billions of dollars in research funding and 20 years of trying.

This is how lost they are:

Eating Your Own: Severe Nonsense




Earlier this week, I was looking at Twitter and checking our notifications.  What caught my eye was the photo we use on Anne Dachel's amazing posts cataloging the monstrous increase in and costs of special education around the globe. Then I read the Tweet and thought, "Hey, I know that name." I had to think back many years to a collegial conversation she and I had. Jill has an organization called something like the National Coalition for Severe Autism. Here at AofA, we say over and over that the more severe versions of autism have been totally buried by neurodiversity. I would consider any org focusing on people like many of our readers' own children an ally. The Tweet says otherwise.  Below is my exchange with Jill.

The Real Conspirators

The real conspirators who lied about Covid's origin, funded fraudulent trials of therapeutics, and controlled the Covid pandemic are the top public health leaders

In very early 2020 there was a lot of chatter about where the virus, later named SARS-CoV-2, actually came from.  In an excellent, detailed article for the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, former NY Times science writer Nicholas Wade describes how two short pieces published in The Lancet and Nature Medicine in Feb-March 2020 determined how this chatter would be channeled.

These two extraordinarily influential pieces, each simply titled as a "Correspondence," were parroted by the mainstream media for a year. Each was plainly intended to shut down any discussion of a possible lab origin.

I happened to read both Correspondences in March 2020 and it was immediately apparent to me that each was designed as a propaganda tool. Neither had anything to do with science.  In fact, the Andersen et al. Correspondence in Nature Medicine butchered the science. Each had an unusual concatenation of authors.

I was so intrigued by these articles that I kept searching the net to understand them, and discovered that Francis Collins, the NIH Director, had blogged on March 26 about the Nature Medicine Correspondence, suggesting it should put an end to conspiracy theories about lab origin.

I further found a February 6 letter from the 3 heads of the US National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine (NAS) to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, to "help elucidate the origin and evolution" of SARS-CoV-2.  This letter had been referred to by the Lancet Correspondence authors.  But it had not yet been published when the Lancet correspondence was written, suggesting again some  mutual effort involving the authors of this letter (the heads of the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine) and the Lancet Correspondence authors.

Negative Conditioning: Villagers In India Report Officials Turned off Electricity

UttarAutism is a world of behaviors. And behaviorists. We are familiar with negative reinforcement. And we do not like it. Torture is the ultimate negative reinforcement. I can't help but wonder if there are those in the demented world of Public Health who would choose to waterboard citizens to increase uptake.

Negative reinforcement is a method that can be used to help teach specific behaviors. With negative reinforcement, something uncomfortable or otherwise unpleasant is taken away in response to a stimulus.

I would say that if this story is accurate from India, the Indian public health agency is using negative reinforcement on the villagers. How far is that from the only slightly more subtle version of what is happening elsewhere? Like here in the USA. If you don't get your Covid vaccine there will be no college. Sporting events. Seating in restaurants.

###

Over 100 families of Chhibramau village in Kannauj district are living in darkness for the last three days because they didn’t want to get vaccinated against Covid-19.

“A team from the health department had visited our village on Wednesday morning. They wanted the entire village to be vaccinated. However, around 40 per cent of the villagers refused to take the vaccine because they believed that their immunity level would go down for a few days and they might fall sick,” a villager, who didn’t want to be named, told reporters on Friday.

The medical team called the sub-divisional magistrate and informed him about the resistance.

“The SDM arrived in the village and tried to convince us to get vaccinated. When we kept refusing, he suddenly got furious and called the electricity department officials. They disconnected the power supply in our houses on the order of the officer,” the villager added.

“Even on Friday, some officers came and asked us to get inoculated, failing which they would take legal action against us. We know that they cannot take any legal action, but the way they are threatening us is alarming,” Mahendra Singh, another villager, said.  Read more at Telegraph India.


Can’t Say it Any Better

Stop look listenBy Cathy Jameson

Several friends asked me if I’d seen the emails yet…you know, “The Emails”.  I actually haven’t.  Sitting here Friday evening typing this post, I still haven’t read Dr. Fauci’s emails that so many are talking about.  I will make a point to carve out time to look at what’s been discovered.  I have a feeling that what I learn will not shock me though.  Fauci hasn’t been looking out for the people very well.  He hasn’t been completely honest in the past about other important topics either, including vaccines. 

https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4782570/user-clip-measles-vaccine-encephalitis 

Just reading the headlines about The Emails has left me speechless.  Since so many others are able to chime and across many platforms, I’m posting their words instead.

-- 

Tucker Carlson’s commentary has been spot on from the beginning of the pandemic.  He gets straight to the point with solid references, especially when he’s talking about Dr. Fauci.  Carlson has revealed so much and wants the truth out there.  I appreciate every word of this recent clip, including when Carlson says, “Watch Fauci lie.”   

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yp6btJhS66c

Investigative journalist, Sharyl Attkisson, has also kept the public in the know.  In a report that came out before The Emails surfaced, she shared that scientists have been afraid to step forward.  “The scientists I talked to don’t want to be quoted by name for fear of repercussions in today’s politically-charged environment.”  What an awful predicament!  To those who are not afraid, thank you.  You’re honesty is noted.

About Face Forward Live: New York Eliminates Mask Rule for ALL

Animal house parade detour
Source: Animal House But You Knew That

Seems we're seeing an bout face in New York. From NBC yesterday:

NY to Eliminate Indoor Mask Rule for Schools, Camps Monday Regardless of Vaccination Status

State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker has sent a letter to the CDC asking if the agency has any objections to the changed approach, which would take effect Monday irrespective of vaccination status

New York plans to eliminate its indoor mask requirement for students and adults in schools and camps statewide starting Monday barring any objection from the CDC, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Friday.

At that point, mask use will be strongly encouraged indoors but not required for students, campers and staff, teachers and counselors of any age, whether they are fully vaccinated or not. Outdoor masking is already only encouraged at this point for non-vaccinated campers and counselors in certain higher-risk circumstances, according to updated guidance for summer March-into-wallcamps released by the state in May.

I'm glad schools will be included. Here in Connecticut, we've seen confused kids more anxious than ever. We dropped the indoor mask requirement in many sectors, but not in schools. How confusing for children to hear that people without masks and worse, without Covid vaccination are a danger to them. Confusing and cruel.  Just last week, we had a boy refuse to get out of the car at Karate because he was afraid that some kids would not be in masks, after the change in requirements here. He skipped class.  Who could blame the children for not know what the heck to feel or think?


Trust Has Been Long Gone

Trust and safetyAs the news comes out about Dr. Anthony Fauci's email after email contradicting the how and why of the pandemic, many of us just shake our heads with a weary sigh. Tucker Carlson: Uncovered Emails Show Fauci Supported ‘Grotesque’ Experiments at Wuhan Lab  Fauci presided over the catastrophic rise of autism - and did nothing but hem and haw and tell us what is wasn't - vaccines. Vaccines. Vaccines. Vaccines. We're often accused of being too vaccine-centric. It has cost us dearly. Sponsors. Gone. Donors. Sparse but much loved. Google. Shut us down. But when we think of what vaccines have cost our families, it's a small price to pay.  Here, Jeremy Hammond wrote in March about yet another scandal involving WHO, children and vaccines - without informed consent. Malaria has a close to tie to Age of Autism. Our founder Dan Olmsted broke a huge story about Lariam, a drug for Malaria, with his UPI writing partner Mark Benjamin. Army eyes malaria drug in Bragg killings.

You'd think in today's world, a story about WHO potentially harming African children would be splashed everywhere with indignation. You'd think.

WHO Experimenting on African Children without Informed Consent

The World Health Organization (WHO), a pair of articles recently published in The BMJ have revealed, is sponsoring an experimental study of a controversial malaria vaccine among African children without obtaining informed consent from parents.

Data from prior clinical trials of the vaccine, manufactured by the British multinational pharmaceutical corporation GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), have shown it to be associated with an increased risk of clinical malaria after four years, a tenfold increased risk of meningitis, an increased risk of cerebral malaria (in which the parasitic organisms block the flow of blood to the brain, causing swelling and potential brain damage), and an increased risk of death that was disproportionately higher for female children.  Read more at JeremyHammond.com.


Previous Infection is Superior to Vaccine for COVID Protection

643DF2A9-4883-46B3-B09A-EAF6F106115APrevious Infection is Superior to Vaccine for COVID Protection

By Cassandra Chambers

Millions of Americans have been infected with COVID and survived. We must examine the important question of whether they are now immune to the disease or whether it is advisable for them to receive injections of one of the Emergency-Use-Authorized shots – Pfizer, Moderna, or Jansen (Johnson & Johnson).

In a news briefing on May 5, Dr. Anthony Fauci highlighted three recent studies addressing immune response with and without vaccination (Reynolds et al, Leier et al, Stamatatos et al.) and declared, “We need to get vaccinated because vaccines are highly efficacious. They are better than the traditional response you get from natural infection.” The net conclusion of the studies he cited was that, based on antibody response, vaccinated people who had a previous infection are more protected from future COVID infection than both people vaccinated but not previously infected and people who are unvaccinated but previously infected.

As these declarations of virus protection and vaccine efficacy were based on antibody response, it would make sense to check current immunity status by having antibody levels checked, but that is not what is happening. According to the CDC,

Antibody testing is not currently recommended to assess for immunity to COVID-19 following COVID-19 vaccination or to assess the need for vaccination in an unvaccinated person. Since vaccines induce antibodies to specific viral protein targets, post-vaccination serologic test results will be negative in persons without history of previous natural infection if the test used does not detect antibodies induced by the vaccine.

In other words, even though scientists typically make conclusions about potential immune response based on antibodies in the lab, checking for antibodies in the real world – in your body – is not a valid way to detect your immune status. Also, the reference to “antibodies induced by the vaccine” seems to indicate that people who have been previously infected may have a broader immune response than vaccine recipients who were not previously infected.

Is there any real data (not lab-based) demonstrating an expected immune response for people who have been previously infected compared to vaccinated people? As a matter of fact, there is. A UK study with over 25,000 participants published in The Lancet on April 17 showed that having had a previous infection “reduced the incidence of reinfection by at least 84%.” Read more at American Thinker.


Reader, Reader, What Do You See?

Reader, Reader, What Do You See? I see a white shoe worn by Mi! 

Since we are the Age of AUTISM....  This is my daughter Mia. She is 26 years old. Shoes are our Waterloo. She has some foot issues and is very particular about both clothing colors and shoe choices. During the day, she enjoys wearing blue jeans (long, cropped and maybe shorts if I push it) and a pink sweatshirt. Solid. No designs. Magenta or neon pink. In Summer, I can usually encourage her to wear a short sleeve shirt. It takes some coaxing. Her choice for lounging and sleeping is black yoga pants and a solid black T shirt.  I stopped trying to add colors and patterns years ago. Pink and black make Mia happy. I want Mia to be happy. she has so little control in her life - this is one area where she asserts herself. If she were a flight attendant she would have a uniform to wear every day, so what's the difference? I can sneak in a slightly different shade of pink, or even a sweater, instead of sweatshirt. She's open to that.

But shoes are another story.

She wears a black slip on waterproof shoe from September through May. Come June, I have to try to switch her to new, lighter weight shoes.  Usually it's a sandal with velcro straps. But I really wanted to see if she'd wear a lightweight sneaker. Tying is an issue, and I want her to be independent when dressing. I splurge on shoes, I do not skimp. I buy clothes at WalMart and Goodwill to save a buck. But shoes? Nope. Her Aetrex slips ons cost $180! I scoured Marshalls and TJ Maxx for a possible sneaker, and found a pair of Sketchers.  And she's wearing them!!! White sneakers!  For us, this is huge.

How did I do it, you ask? I hid her black shoes. Yup. Took then out of her room and left only the white sneakers and a pair of new pink sandals in her closet. She whined. She complained. "No white shoes! Black shoes!" I felt like the worst mother in the world, as I do often, and certainly at every shoe change season. 

Finally, she put them on. I waited. She did not kick them off right away. A good sign. She stood up. A great sign. She went into the family room and sat down with her row of Kindles and the shoes stayed on!

Yesterday morning, she put them on with a minor fuss. Tomorrow will be easier. And so, we will build our routine. And I will order as many pair as I can online to save so we can continue to wear them next summer too.

I wonder, who will buy Mia shoes, and help her make the switch when I am gone. Do I need to write shoe instructions into my will? These are the small victories we celebrate. And the huge worries that keep us up at night.

Reader, reader, what do you see? I see white shoes worn by Mi.


Parents in Tiny Minnesota Town Say "No" To In School Clinic

Nevis_tiger_muskieBy Anne Dachel

Parents in the northern Minnesota town of Nevis (pop. 390) took a daring step recently demanding that a planned COVID vaccine clinic at a local school be shut down. While most of the coverage defended the safety of vaccinating against COVID, this shows the power of organized groups who call for health freedom.

May 25, 2021, Park Rapids Sentinel: Following complaints, Nevis School cancels vaccination clinic

Plans to use the Nevis School building as a site for COVID-19 vaccinations today in cooperation with CHI St. Joseph’s Health Community Health were changed after a vocal group against the idea came to Monday night’s school board meeting.

Members in the group started out by saying that schools are for education, not vaccination. They stated that the vaccine is not fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and these vaccines are putting the lives of children at stake, with one group member characterizing the shots as “jabbing children with poison.”

They also stated that more than 99 percent of children who contract COVID do not become seriously ill. They said the decision to vaccinate children should be made by parents with their child’s doctor and that holding a shot clinic on school property is not appropriate.

Superintendent Gregg Parks said that it was not their idea to offer vaccinations at the school, but they cooperated with CHI St. Joseph’s Community Health, an agency that has been working with the school on its Safe School Plan during the pandemic, when asked to do so. …

Marlee Morrison, the director of CHI St. Joseph’s Community Health, said the idea to offer vaccines at schools came from the state.

“We’re the public health agency for Hubbard County, so we work under the Minnesota Department of Health’s guidance,” she said. “With the recent emergency use authorization of the Pfizer vaccine for children 12 and older from the FDA, and knowing that schools are sources of outbreaks, we want to offer the vaccine to those who are eligible. It’s a strategy that’s happening statewide….


The Genesis of the Man Made Epidemic

COVID Pecs10 years. 20 years. 25 years. 30 years. How many years have we been waiting for the government and media to recognize that autism is a man made epidemic, and start asking the questions we've been shouting for 10 years, 20 years, 25 years, 30 years and longer?  Age of Autism was created by Dan Olmsted and Mark Blaxill while they were writing their book, The Age of Autism Mercury, Medicine and a Man Made Epidemic. The book was critically acclaimed in our circles and soundly ignored or worse in mainstream circles, like so many other books that exposed the reality of autism.

The Washington Post, long an adversary of the vaccine safety community, has asked if the novel coronavirus could have created a man made epidemic. Imagine that. Just 17 months after we first heard the name of this virus, hard questions are "allowed."  Months. Not years. Why?

Renewed focus on Wuhan lab scrambles the politics of the pandemic

Senate Democrats lined up alongside Sen. Josh Hawley (Mo.), one of their least-favorite Republicans, to support a measure urging the Biden administration to declassify intelligence on whether the novel coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab. A Democratic-led House subcommittee is pledging an investigation into the virus’s origins, including the lab’s safety record.

And President Biden, in an unusual public statement, directed U.S. intelligence agencies to “redouble their efforts” to determine the cause of the pandemic, suggesting that while the virus could have jumped from animals to humans, it also could have escaped from the lab.

I started to wonder, what if the catastrophe of Covid lock downs and now the unbelievable rush to coerced vaccination with 3 or more brand new vaccines that are still experimental in use are going to help people to understand the autism epidemic that began in the early 1990s?  What was a conspiracy theory might now open eyes.



Outrageous Expectations

No bullying braceletBy  Cathy Jameson

It’s very rare that someone calls the house phone.  It’s even rarer for someone to call the house phone and ask for Ronan.  When those calls for my son who has severe autism do come in, I am immediately apprehensive.  That feeling came over me last week when a young woman rang the house phone and asked to speak to Ronan.  Quickly, I thought of several options.  I could…

1--toy with her,

“Ronan?  You wanna to talk to him?  Ok, hold on…” 

Hey, Rone. Come here, bud.  You got a phone call.

2--be rude to her,

“Are you serious?  He can’t talk.  Who is this anyway?!”

3--or be polite to her.

“Oh, hey.  Yeah, Ronan is nonverbal.  But I’m his Mom.  Can I help you with something?”

I chose option 3. 

I didn’t recognize the voice but had an idea of why this person was calling.  She said she was trying to get a hold of Ronan to remind him of an upcoming appointment.  After I shared that Ronan couldn’t speak, I could hear her typing in the background.  I assumed that she was adding a note to his profile: patient unable to talk.  When she came back on the line, she shared that the appointment would be at a clinic he’s already been to, but Ronan would be seeing a new provider.  She wanted to know if he, or now I, wanted to keep that appointment.  I said, yes, thank you.  The young woman confirmed everything and said that the doctor will look forward to seeing us both on Tuesday afternoon.

Not until well after I hung up did I realize that I didn’t have to answer the usual hundreds of COVID19-related questions I’ve had to answer before previous appointments.  Those questions have been part of life for quite some time:  Are you sick?  Do you have a fever?  Chills?  Cough?  Sore throat?  Have you been diagnosed with COVID19 in the last 2 weeks?  Have you come in contact with a person who tested positive for COVID19 in the last 2 weeks?  It was nice to have a shorter conversation and one that reminded me of easier days. 

When we arrived to the clinic, Ronan did not want to go in.  That’s not surprising and can cause some delay.  He likes his caregivers, especially the ones he is used to seeing.  But he’s never a big fan of going into these sorts of places.  It sometimes takes loads of encouragement to get him out of the car and then for him to walk through the door.  This time, it took some extra effort, but once he got over the threshold, he knew the expectations – check in at the front desk, wait for his name to be called, then go to the exam room.  After finally walking in, he waited perfectly in the waiting room before he was called back. 

A nurse opened the door and said, “Ronan?  Hi, come with me.  I’m going to take you to the room.”  Reaching for my hand, Ronan and I stood up together and followed the nurse.  I’m so glad that no matter which clinic we’re in, Ronan has that part of the routine down.

How true is this? And now, the pressured, fear-based rush to add an experimental nail to children's, teens and young adults coffins. My daughters have autism, but they are full of joy, smiles, and they are content. They walk with confidence and pride in a world that’s quite inaccessible to them.

They function.

They function well. Despite their disability. 

Many of their “typical” peers are lost in a morass of low functioning mental health.

Dr. Scott Jensen's Run for Governor of Minnesota

Dr scott jensen
By Anne Dachel

Minnesota physician Dr. Scott Jensen is a Republican candidate for governor who wants to halt giving the COVID vaccine to teens.  As expected, Dr. Jensen has come under fire for daring to challenge the official narrative that we all need to be vaccinated against the coronavirus. 

May 28, 2021, WEAU TV, Eau Claire, WI:  Minnesota candidate backs move to block COVID shots for kids

Minnesota Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Jensen is backing a court action to stop COVID-19 vaccinations for 12- to 16-year-olds that, among other things, compares the inoculations to Nazi experimentation on imprisoned Jews.

Jensen is a family physician and former state senator from Chaska. And he’s the first named plaintiff in a petition filed in federal court in Alabama by America’s Frontline Doctors, which calls the vaccines “dangerous biological agents.”

May 27, 2021, St Paul Pioneer Press: GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott Jensen, a physician, goes to court to stop youth COVID vaccinations. He says he hasn’t read the entire petition.

Scott Jensen, a prominent Minnesota Republican candidate for governor with a track record of COVID-19 theories not shared by the medical community, has signed onto an effort to stop vaccinations for 12- to 16-year-olds.

It should be noted that Dr. Jensen was named Minnesota Family Physician of the Year in 2016.


Who is Going to Pay for Autism?

Autism checkYesterday, I saw a post on Facebook from a friend in our boat that posed a question: Who is going to pay for what they did to our kids?

The "Who" is a long list of culprits. The "What" is another story.

Today's world has many conversations about pay backs, getting what you are owed, finding someone else to pay for your mistakes, or choices.  Tuition debt forgiveness comes to mind. Great for those who qualify who think the idea is laudable. (And who wouldn't?) It's a slap in the wallet to those who either chose not to attend college, paid their debt or are still dutifully paying every month. The idea is laughable to them.

Below is how I commented. It's not my usual cheery approach. It's raw. It's how I feel. Worse, I know that in 1, 5, 10, 20 years, there are millions who will be asking a similar question after adding the C vax to the regimen. Same answer.

We are. The parents (or in my case, parent.) Our kids were the test generation for this Covid catastrophe. There is NO FEAR of V sin-ation in the average American. When the world embraced autism as a gift, a special kind of difference, that was the groundwork to make sure our stories died on the vine. We tried to warn the others what hurt our kids. We were shut down. And now parents think only of unicorns, saviors and messiahs when they see a needle. They turned the fear of the product into a fear of not having the product. On the backs our OUR kids. That's what autism's gift was to the world. Pharma dependence and a junkie-like need for "protection."

Mom Gets Pass for Leaving Child in Car But Never for Vaccine Choice

Two differenBlame parentst worlds for Connecticut Moms.

We had a case of chicken pox at our high school this week. "How did this happen" asked one local town group member on Facebook. The first comment?  Blame the anti-vaxxers!  Dozens chimed in with hatred, vitriole, disrespect, bullying, nastiness about people they don't even know and a case of chicken pox about which they know nothing. Every jerk egged on the next jerk. Some of those same folks with "hate has no home here" signs in the their yards.  I live here, I know these people.

We also had another case of a child being in a car that was stolen from the gas station. Usually in these cases, the child is found safe. The car thieves aren't looking for a kidnapping charge, if caught. Thank goodness this was a 9 year old child who was able to run back to the Gas station theft gas station, where her Mom had stopped late at night to put air into her tires. The teen thief jumped in and drove off with her daughter asleep in the back seat. Girl Wakes to Find Stranger Stole Mom's Car in Manchester: Police

One of my jobs is teaching martial arts. Our most basic self-defense techniques are not kicks or a punches.  They are teaching students to use a heavy dose of..... common sense.  We tell everyone to LOCK THE CAR when you gas up. Even if you have been going to the same gas station for 20 years. Even if the gas station is 5 minutes from your house. Especially at night. That means as you stand outside of your car at the gas pump (except you folks in NJ who still have service) your car is locked. Or in this case in Connecticut, at the air pump.

Many of the comments on Facebook were QUICK to defend the Mom. "Leave her alone! She's punished enough! Haven't you ever made a mistake?" Of course the Mom feels horrible and will regret the decision forever. It was a mistake that will haunt her. And I feel for her - Mom to Mom.  We all know it was a terrible miscalculation and oversight. Still, her daughter could have been killed.

But, think about any and every time you heard of a Mom who chose not to vaccinate her child fully. Whoooeeee! The hammer comes down like Thor getting up on the wrong side of a poorly  built IKEA bed.  Why is is that some Moms get a pass and some get kicked in the ass?

Autism Reaches 6% in British Schools - it’s just one of those things!

EA499B48-F9BA-4316-85E1-3E25ED6A5FC8By John Stone

This is a mathematical follow up to Anne Dachel’s report about autism in Northern Irish schools. Northern Ireland may not be completely representative of the United Kingdom but one valuable way in which it is not is that it systematically collects autism data for its children, whereas in the rest of the kingdom we increasingly just have unaccounted special needs chaos. However, the new data leaves us with a clear conclusion that the present autism rate is likely around 6%. The given figure is 4.5% which is based on 13,401 children: the other figure of those on the waiting list for diagnosis is 4,495, and it is clear where we get when the two are added together. We have no means of calculating closely the numbers for the other three nations (England, Scotland and Wales) but perhaps we ought to look at this as the ball-park figure.

How did we get here? In 1999 according to a carefully conducted survey for the geographical region ‘Great Britain’ the figure was just one twentieth at 0.3%.
As many of us realised at the time there was already a dynamic increase: there were twice as many cases (0.4%) in primary school (4-11) as secondary (12-18)  (0.2%) although secondary students had a longer time to gain a diagnosis and were monitored by the same services (p.33 Table 4.1, listed as ‘a less common disorder, Pervasive Development Disorder). By 2004, unsurprisingly, this amounted to about 1% in both divisions (p.35 Table 4.1, listed as “a less common disorder, Autistic Spectrum Disorder), and now here we are a further 17 years on and it is times 6 that figure. 

Of course, all the time governments around the world did their best to adjust the data to make it appear as if nothing was happening but when the last British government Chief Medical Officer produced a successor survey to that of 2004 in November 2018 (now limited to England) with a figure of 1.2% it was so off-beam and so low powered it was laughable. Should anyone think this present 6% is illusory the new Northern Ireland census reports that two-thirds of  diagnosed cases (66%) are at the highest level of educational need (Stage 5). We have a bureaucratic class that will do anything to cover its tracks, but it was bad luck for the people back in Whitehall that the very earnest Northern Ireland Assembly took autism sufficiently seriously to determine that there should be an annual school census.

Of course, among other things the Covid debacle is a very good camouflage for the meltdown in our schools. With autism at 6% surely some people would notice that there is something up.

 

 

 

 

 


What Is Your Obligation To The Greater Good

Set yourself on fire
But you can get them a blanket

The New York Times ran an editorial over the weekend titled: Please Vaccinate Your Teenager to Protect My 4-Year-Old.

The author's daughter had/s cancer. (Is anyone ever really cancer free?) What kind of monster would not feel sympathy, and what kind of parent would not feel protective of Nusayba?  Most of us naturally look out for other people's children. We send nut free lunches even if our kids can eat Jif. We look out for kids in stores if they seem lost. We share Amber alerts and feel deep sorrow when we learn of a child's death.  Does that mean we should risk our own children on another child's behalf? And be shamed if we do not?

You and your kids could help protect my 4-year-old daughter’s life.

Nusayba was found to have a rare cancer at the age of 2. Since then, she has endured multiple rounds of chemotherapy and a liver transplant. Fortunately, she has been cancer-free for over a year now. Her cheeks have filled out, her bouncy, thick curls are growing back, and we can’t help indulging her love of cinnamon rolls and Dippin’ Dots.

The best news my family has heard since Nusayba was declared cancer-free is that the F.D.A. has authorized the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for 12- to 15-year-olds.

The headline reminded me of a meme I had seen several years ago: "You are not required to set yourself on fire to keep someone else warm."  In the language of Vaccinese, the new Esperanto, this means, you should not be required to endanger your own teen with an experimental vaccine to theoretically protect someone else's young child."

I commented on the NYT Facebook page.

Should we then demand a full paid vasectomy for all American boys once they reach puberty, to protect girls from pregnancy? We will give them a donut and a chance to win a tricked out Subaru. The boys can have a government funded reverse vasectomy when married and with enough provable income to support a family. This will protect society, protect girls and therefore is necessary. Of course not.

I got quite a few likes and two comments agreeing:

With today’s logic on the vaccine, this makes sense to me!
Brilliant analogy!

But many commenters failed to appreciate my analogy.

that is a ridiculous argument
not even the same
that is an asinine argument!
That really isn't relevant to the subject of vaccines. It would never happen because vasectomies are not designed to be reversible, though sometimes they can be. They are intended for men who are sure they don't want to father any more children.


By the way, the success rate for vasectomies as long as ten years ago is up to 95%. I imagine that today, doctors could create an experimental technique using the latest technology that would be even more successful. And if some boys are unable to father children in the future, that's terrible, but hey, "greater good," right. Think of the 4 year olds.....






It’s Up to You

Up to youBy Cathy Jameson

I thought the antics during the flu shot season were bad. The aggressive push to inject COVID19 countermeasures into Americans is worse.  With the ineffective flu vaccine, people had been able to shop for groceries with a supermarket or pharmacy store gift card post vaccination.  With the experimental COVID19 vaccines, you can get free beer!

Donut C Vax

Want a free donut?  You can get one of those, too, with proof of vaccination.   In fact, quite an assortment of free stuff is now being offered to the “fully vaccinated”.  Employee incentives are also available, like paid time off and comped work hours.  Even though scores of people are reporting negative side effects, the COVID19 vaccine deals are a plenty!

What other medical procedure comes with alcohol and sugary desserts as an incentive?  

None. 

So why this one?  

Because Emergency Use Authorized (EUA) vaccines aren’t advertised like other vaccines, namely approved ones.  We’re seeing a different sort of hype about ones that are EUA. 

One Less CJ

FDA-approved vaccines pepper the pages of magazines and cycle through television commercials.

The ones for FDA approved vaccines are true advertisements and should not to be confused with the $250 million campaign currently in place. That campaign was designed to educate  the importance of getting vaccinated for a novel but recoverable Ad councilillness.  Started months ago and titled It’s Up to You, it partnered with several businesses and corporations “with the ultimate goal of helping the public feel confident and prepared to get vaccinated once a vaccine is available to them”.  Note:  it was not designed to educate consumers on vaccine facts, vaccine data or vaccine risks.  The “media blitz” features influencers, messengers, faith leaders and other trusted people to coerce the hesitant to get the vaccine.  You may have already heard one of a number of the incessant commercials on the radio stations of late, called a “vaccine confidence message.”  

Also airing on television and in some print, the goal of the multimillion dollar campaign is to reach not just the hesitant, but also the vaccine reluctant.  Drawing on the heartstrings, and also pitting family member against family member, it’s a campaign like no other.

One in Every 22 Schoolchildren in Northern Ireland Has an Autism Diagnosis

Abadnonned schoolThank goodness for Anne Dachel, who refuses to ignore the ever increasing autism numbers and the affect on schools around the world. Autism is yesterday's news everywhere it seems. It's front page news in most of our homes though. And we will not set it aside for Covid or anything else. Autism is in our DNA and our name.

By Anne Dachel

ONE IN EVERY 22 KIDS IN SCHOOL IN NORTHERN IRELAND HAS AN ASD DIAGNOSIS!

Up from one in 24 last year

Last week I posted that 4,500 kids in Northern Ireland were on waiting lists for autism assessment.

Some families were waiting for 4 or more years just to get a diagnosis for their child, and we were told that 4,500 was probably an undercount.

NOW comes the announcement from the BBC that almost 5 percent of kids in NI have autism. 

WAIT…while we're told that there are 13,000 children in the six counties with autism, imagine the real number if they added another 4,500 to that number.

STILL we’re told that nothing is really wrong. The increase is not a real increase at all.

"Increased awareness and the effect of the Autism Act NI, which was passed in 2011, have been highlighted as potential reasons for the rise in diagnoses…."

It’s mind-numbing how this can continue with no demand for an investigation into the never-ending increases. What will it take for officials in London to wake up to this disaster? One in ten children? One in five with autism?

Unleashing Hell

Hellraiser boxBy Lynn Barton

The SARS-CoV-2 virus has killed millions worldwide and upended our lives. We all desperately want to return to normality. The current drumbeat is that vaccine passports are the ticket to getting our lives back. But what if implementing such a system will do the opposite: make a return to normality impossible ever again? First, some background:

  1. All vaccines carry risk. In 1986 Congress gave manufacturers immunity from liability, because there were so many injury lawsuits that the companies threatened to stop making vaccines altogether. As with any medical intervention, vaccines require a person to make a risk/benefit judgement.
  1. The SARS-CoV-2 vaccines are currently issued under an Emergency Use Authorization, which also exempts manufacturers from liability. They cannot be sued. While vaccines typically take five to ten years to develop, these have been raced to market in nine months. In addition, the mRNA vaccines are a new technology never before used in a vaccine. Since long term injuries such as autoimmune disease can take years to appear, it is impossible to know their true risk so soon. (Compare: the heartburn drug Zantac, deemed safe for decades, this year was taken off the market as carcinogenic, and lawsuits are proliferating.)
  1. In 1976 more than 40 million people received an emergency swine flu vaccine. It was pulled after 25 deaths were reported. For the SARS-CoV-2 vaccines, in just four months, more than 3800 deaths and 10,000 hospitalizations have been reported. Since a Harvard study concluded that less than 1% of adverse events are captured by VAERS (a passive reporting system), the actual numbers could be much higher.
  1. Healthy people pose no threat to others. A study of ten million people in Wuhan showed virtually no asymptomatic transmission. Other studies have confirmed this.

Here’s an idea that would harm no one: American culture pressures people to work even when ill. Let’s make working sick as socially unacceptable as drunk driving.

  1. SARS-CoV-2 has overall a better than 98% recovery rate. It is dangerous to the elderly and people with co-morbidities, for whom the risk/benefit calculation may lean in favor of the vaccine. Early treatment, which has inexplicably been denied in Oregon, would also save lives and could prevent long hauler syndrome.

Yet some insist it is a duty to risk harming one’s own health for others. This is a new idea that has appeared in recent years, and it is deeply immoral. If a person chooses to risk their life for others, that is a noble thing. But it can never be a duty. We should firmly reject such a notion.

Kids? You Don't Even Have to Feed Them!

52C3804A-D601-4F3B-B42C-C98007117BEBI’ve been seeing an ad on Facebook for a meal delivery service called "'LittleSpoons." Meals for babies, toddlers and children delivered to your door. No cooking. Take that onerous job called mealtime "off your plate," Mom (and Dad.) I get the stress of today's world and needing to make life a bit easier. I understand ordering take out or prepared meals. I'm not poking fun Lil Spoons (much.) I just thought the ad approach, "take mealtime off your plate" missed the mark - the benefit to the food should be for the babies and children, not to tell Mom she doesn't have to feed her kids. I'm Italian-American, food is a big deal.  The Little Spoons menu looks pretty darn good.

In the autism community, food has presented huge challenges to parents. And we often used specialized diets that required not just cooking from scratch, but sometimes being chemists!  Who remembers making the GF flour mixes? I threw away more gummy baked goods than I can count. We had cookbooks, and Yahoo groups to help us learn how to cook for our children. In my family, that was 25 years ago.

Back when I was a kid, double 25 years ago, we called "Little Spoons"  Swanson's TV dinners. They were a rare meal and we considered them a big treat.  Who remembers the brownie dessert? Or scraping the last bits of mashed potatoes and gravy from the corners of the aluminum foil tray? Aluminum foil! Before we injected kids with aluminum. 

Many Moms cooked dinner every night. (Many still do.) It wasn't always gourmet food either. It wasn't curated. It wasn't organic. It wasn't GFCFSFABCDEF free. And plant based meant vegetables, not Frankenmeats. But we had a balanced meal on the table, often with two choices: Eat it or go hungry.Swanson dinner

Today's young Moms face stress and anxiety levels unique to their cohort. I was surrounded by Moms whose kids had autism. Sometimes  you need an "easy button" and Little Spoons might be it.  Gluten free gnocchi delivered? Sounds good. I wonder if they offer Salisbury steak?  And can I fold the foil lid into a new hat?


The MaskFields vs The MaskCoys

Credit: PBS

Welcome to the era of sanctioned bullying.  And an assumption by many that their neighbor is a liar who is putting their life at risk. I call it, "The Maskfields and the MaskCoys." Read social media comments on articles about masks and/or vaccination. They are brutal and ominous.

The new civil war, where the Generals are Pfizer, CDC and Public health, have enlisted Trader Joe's, Costco, WalMart, Starbucks, CVS, Target each of whom have established policies that are sure to light the powder keg.

What's going to happen when people start removing their masks because they are fully vaccinated?

What's going to happen when people who never wore a mask continue to live their day to day lives without a mask?

What's going to happen when people who are fully vaccinated remain in a mask?

What's going to happen when people who are unvaccinated remain in a mask?

What's going to happen when people who are vaccinated and wearing masks see people who are not wearing masks?

I smell trouble. Fights. Verbal and physical. We are a nation where people scrum over the latest iPhone or Black Friday sneaker debut.  Major retailers are creating policies that I feel strongly will lead to danger.

 

 

 


Breakthrough Cases: Remember the "Change of Life" Baby

Old sperm and eggGood morning - we're having some technical issues with type overlap, thanks for your patience. We're working on it with the platform provider

###

I'm old enough to remember the term, "change of life baby."  We called her "Auntie Ann," my father's youngest sister of the ten children born.

A change of life baby is one born when a woman is near, or thinks she is in, menopause. The factory seems closed, but it wasn't locked.

The spate of Covid cases in partially and fully vaccinated people reminded me of this old term.  And the push to vaccinate kids as young as 12 has me worried about the affect on their long term health, including fertility as thousand of women have reported changes to their menstrual cycle since the vaccination push began.

I ran a quick search in Google:

Does the Covid vaccine affect menstrual cycle?

There is no current evidence that vaccines cause any menstrual irregularities.

Read that carefully. "There is no current evidence," does not mean "NO." It means either no one has looked, or the product is so new that the data isn't in yet, or likely will end up meaning both.  We've heard this for decades in the autism community for everything from vaccine safety to diet to treatments. When no one is allowed or willing to look, there's no evidence. It's the tree falling in the woods. Ask the birds in the tree what happens as their nest tumbles and is crushed. Ask the rabbits whose entrance to their warren is blocked by the trunk. "Noise" isn't always audible.

The data could be a generation that struggles to have children in what should be their most fertile years. This, at a time when the birthrate is already falling in the USA and elsewhere. 

A falling birthrate is catastrophic for those of us with children who will require assistance for the rest of their lives. We need the next generation or two to make money to fill the social security program coffers. If the birth rate drops, elderly and special needs alike will suffer as there simply won't be enough money to pay their monthly Social Security and Supplemental Income. Caregivers are usually younger employees, who take the jobs in their 20s and then move on as they grow older. Caregivers are often younger siblings. Caregivers can be nieces and nephews.  My daughters will have no sons, daughters, nieces or nephews. I still care about future generations and am unwilling to accept "There is no current evidence."


Parents Questioned & Labeled For Using Critical Thinking Skills

WhyWhy aren't they anti-vaccine? They are worried about the safety and effect on their kids. We learned the hard way, many of us. And we are worried about the safety and effect of all vaccines because of what happened to our own children. So why are we anti-vaccine?

From The New York Times. 

They’re Not Anti-Vaccine, but These Parents Are Hesitant

More often than not, Dr. Talib said, the parents had already had the Covid-19 vaccine themselves, and would preface their message with: “I’m not an anti-vaxxer or an anti-masker. I’m just worried.” According to recently released polls, parents across the country share those concerns, with only about 30 percent saying they would get their children vaccinated right away. Parents of infants and preschoolers expressed more anxiety about the vaccine than parents of teenagers did


Take Me Out to the Shell Game! Keep Me Away from the Crowd!

Hidden ball trickBuy me some peanuts and Crackerjack.  Wait, wait, wait, no peanuts, anaphylaxis is extremely dangerous and should never, ever be tempted. And no one will want Crackjack unless there's a Covid shot inside as the prize.  Seems the joke was on Major League Baseball last week, when eight vaccinated Yankees tested positive for Covid.  As of yesterday, the number was nine players, vaccinated and positive for Covid. Why now they field their own team!

I've heard at least five cases among my circle of friends who have been vaccinated with at least one dose, and soon thereafter contracted Covid. And then proceeded to get their second dose, to be "safe."  We have no idea what having active Covid while taking in the vaccinations does short or long term.

Baseball's "oldest ruse" has been replaced by CDC and Fauci, who was born in Brooklyn when they still had a team. Unfortunately, despite the vaccine, none of the Yankees were Covid "dodgers."
 
(The dying art of the hidden-ball trick dates back to the early days of pro baseball, with seven successful executions documented in 1876 alone. This ruse occurs when a baseman conceals the ball instead of returning it to the pitcher.)



My Priority

My-10-Priorities-as-a-Mother-700x1050By Cathy Jameson

I got an email notification on Wednesday from the medical center that my son, Ronan, goes to.  I’m used to getting all sorts of communications from them.  Upcoming appointment reminders, notices that refills are ready, and COVID-19 screening alerts are the norm.  This time, though, the email was for Ronan’s younger sister.  She’s been a patient at the same center for about 2 years.  The reason she goes there is far less complicated and nothing like the many medical problems Ronan has.  Since it was way too early for a next appointment reminder I was a bit shocked to see the email with my daughter’s name on it.  Questions flooded my brain…Why were they reaching out to me?  Did they discover something new after a records review?  Did a result for an old lab test just come back?  What could be wrong?  I couldn’t access the information right away, so I tried to keep my mind at ease.  

Keeping a worried mother’s mind at ease is no easy task!  So, as soon as I got home, I turned on the computer and opened the medical center’s online portal.  

Then, I rolled my eyes.    

CJ Covid Vax

No matter the age, I don’t think it’s wise to get an experimental vaccine for an orchestrated pandemic.  Shaking my head, I took a screenshot of the email and went to delete it.  Just before deleting it, I read this line again.  

“Vaccinating our community is our priority, and we are committed to ending this pandemic one shot at a time.”  

The ACIP  had only just met that day.  They didn’t just meet on May 12th, though; they opted to issue an Emergency Use Authorization for an experimental vaccine for kids 12 – 15 years of age on that same day.  The notification I received was sent at 5:31pm.  Man, they were working quickly to get a hold of parents of young teens!  I had barely had a chance to read the ACIP update but was not surprised that the medical facility, the media, and even the current administration gave the immediate go ahead to get more shots into more arms, including into healthy children’s arms that don’t need it.  

The vaccine for kids between the ages of 12 and 15 are safe, effective, easy, fast and free,” Biden said. “So my hope is parents will take advantage of the vaccine and get their kids vaccinated.” - Joe Biden 

My priority is to not live in fear of a treatable and recoverable illness but to protect my children.  I’ve promised to keep them from harm, and from coercion, because of previous medical decisions that I made.  Those past decisions were based off of fear.  Instead of listening to reason, and my mother’s intuition, I let someone else make a vaccine decision for me.  I won’t let that happen again.  And I’ll never let a government official sway my thinking, especially one who doesn’t respect vaccine choice.  

CJ Biden vax

The do-it-or-else threats won’t work on me.  It won’t work on my children either.  When I read them the email notification that a liability-free COVID vaccine was available for their little sister, each one of them was shocked.  Are you kidding?  They can’t be serious.  They’re really doing that??  The siblings of the vaccine injured know when someone is pulling a fast one, and they will not be fooled.  I am grateful that they know that The Science doesn’t speak for them.  They understand that The Adults are making rash, knee-jerk reactions.  Where others live in fear of the future, they’re living safely in the present.  The brother’s past has made a profound difference on them.  With that, my kids worry immensely for those who are now opting for the experimental vaccines that come with risk and that may result in devastating outcomes.  Those outcomes may not happen right away but could someday down the road.

The Other God

Importance-of-10-commandments-4-638For those of us whose children were harmed by their pediatric vaccines, coercion to get another vaccine is a sin. To ask us to do so, is to ask us to forsake our children at the altar of Pharma.

By Anne Dachel

Back in January the Catholic bishops of Wisconsin issued a statement: The Mortality of COVID19 Vaccines

They basically reassured everyone that regardless of how closely a COVID vaccine was linked to aborted fetuses, Catholics could in good conscience get one.

This statement was further bolstered by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) in Rome, which is the Holy Father’s own doctrinal and moral office. Also, this same position was taken by the well-respected National Catholic Bioethics Center (NCBC). If a choice of vaccine is possible, the ones that are the least morally compromised should always be requested. However, when there is no choice, the Church teaches that it is morally permissible to receive the vaccine.

Recently Cardinal Cupich of Chicago went even further: Not only CAN Catholics get the COVID vaccine, they MUST GET THE VACCINE. It is their moral duty.

Here’s his statement:

May 5, 2021, Chicago Catholic: Pope Francis: ‘Morally everyone must take the vaccinehttps://www.chicagocatholic.com/cardinal-blase-j.-cupich/-/article/2021/05/05/pope-francis-morally-everyone-must-take-the-vaccine-

While the growing availability of effective COVID-19 vaccines is a sign of hope, the pandemic is still far from over. The number of cases is growing globally, with India seeing more than 400,000 in just one day. As the virus mutates, the pandemic will continue to wreak havoc with mounting death tolls, financial ruin, social isolation and great suffering for the most vulnerable.

The church is called to accompany humanity, as Pope Francis noted in his Sept. 30, 2020, weekly audience. We must bring “healing and salvation in the midst of sickness and death … tenderness in the midst of hatred … and ‘viralize’ love and ‘globalize’ hope in the light of faith.”

Guitar Legend Eric Clapton Describes His Cov Ax Reaction



Eric Clapton needs no introduction. He may need to learn our secret handshake. "...the reactions were disastrous, my hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again,"

"I never should have gone near the needle."

I am an old timer, I have survived, with great help, addiction and alcoholism, and stand now in the greatest dilemma of my life…

I have inwardly stood against our ‘elected leaders’ since brexit, intuitively doubting their integrity and character…

With the arrival of C-19 I hoped that C Henegan, S Gupta and Jay B would lead the way, but when imperial college stepped up with their jailers key, I knew we were in deep trouble…

I am a man of faith, albeit abstract, and what I felt and saw unfold in March ‘20 began to lead me away from govt rhetoric and the devotion of the general public to the PM and his cronies…

I looked for heroes in the house, and found C Walker, Desmond Swayne, and in unfortunate retirement, Lord Sumption…

On YouTube I found Hugotalks and Talk Radio… that was all….

Then I was directed to Van M, that’s when I found my voice, and even though I was singing his words, they echoed in my heart…

I recorded “stand and deliver” in 2020, and was immediately regaled with contempt and scorn…

In February this year, before I learned about the nature of the vaccines, (and being 76 with emphysema) I was in the avant garde. I took the first jab of AZ and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days, I recovered eventually and was told it would be twelve weeks before the second one…

About six weeks later I was offered and took the second AZ shot, but with a little more knowledge of the dangers. Needless to say the reactions were disastrous, my hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again, (I suffer with peripheral neuropathy and should never have gone near the needle.) But the propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone….

Then I met a member of this group, who counselled me to be careful and to have a look at what goes on with you guys…

I felt like a veil had been lifted, that I was no longer alone, that it was okay, in fact essential, to hold on to my intuition and follow my heart…

I continue to tread the path of passive rebellion and try to tow the line in order to be able to actively love my family, but it’s hard to bite my tongue with what I now know…

I’ve recorded and will post here another song by Van called “The Rebels” it’s not aggressive or provocative, it just asks;

“Where have all the rebels gone?

Hiding behind their computer screens

Where’s the spirit, where is the soul

Where have all the rebels gone”

I’ve been a rebel all my life, against tyranny and arrogant authority, which is what we have now, but I also crave fellowship, compassion and love, and that I find here…

I believe with these things we can prevail

President Biden Enlists McDonald's To Promote Vaccination.

SpoilageMcDonald's, the fast food giant, is promoting Covid vaccines for the Biden administration. From McDonald's:

McDonald’s partners with the Biden Administration to provide trusted, independent information on COVID-19 vaccines

If this doesn't convince the average American that Covid vaccination programs have ZERO to do with health, I'm not sure what will. Perhaps a campaign with Philip Morris for a cigarette you can smoke right through a KN-95 mask.  There is no health in fast food. There is diabetes, stroke, heart attacks, cancer, obesity, organ failure. All the the factors that put one at higher risk of dying from Covid are created or worsened by eating McDonald's food. There's no HEALTH to by found by this policy. It's a ruse. And it may be racist.

Fast food consumption affects the health of People of Color more than White Americans, especially children. From our own CDC: Non-Hispanic white adolescents aged 12–19 consumed a lower percentage of calories from fast food on a given day than both non-Hispanic black and Hispanic adolescents. And this: a higher percentage of non-Hispanic black adults -- 42.4 percent -- said they consumed fast food than non-Hispanic white adults at 37.6 percent, non-Hispanic Asian adults at 30.6 percent and Hispanic adults at 35.5 percent.

It's definitely ironic.

President Trump was mocked from bringing fast food into the White House for visiting . Late night talk show hosts pilloried him.  The Twitterverse virtue signalers castigated him. Will they question President Biden's reliance on McDonald's to promote his vaccination race?

President Trump roasted for serving fast food to Clemson players: 'I thought it was a joke'

Kimmel continued, quipping: "And you know he's taking whatever they don't eat back to his bedroom. He'll be like the rat in 'Charlotte's Web' tonight rolling around in Quarter Pounders with cheese."

Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers mocked the president for hosting a meal that appeared to cater less to the tastes of his guests and more to his own well-documented preferences.

"Mr. President," Colbert said, his face contorting into an uncomfortable grimace, "is it possible you're just projecting your favorite foods onto them?"

McDonald’s teams up with Biden admin to provide ‘trusted’ information on Covid vaccines

McDonald’s is helping the White House get the word out about coronavirus vaccines, prompting many Americans to wonder if it’s appropriate for the artery-clogging fast food empire to be involved in public health campaigns.

The company announced on Tuesday that it was partnering with the Biden administration to make “trusted, independent information” about the jabs more accessible to American hamburger-eaters.


 


Are any of the Covid-19 Vaccines Self-Spreading, Self-Propagating, Transmissible Vaccines?

Psudovirus
Spike Protein Pseudovirus

by Ginger Taylor, MS

In 2018, The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Center for Health Security, published Technologies to Address Global Catastrophic Biological Risks.

Among the technologies discussed in the paper, are "Self-Spreading Vaccines." Vaccines that only need be given to a portion of the population, and are then become communicable between individuals, like a virus. Page 47 of the document reads in part:

"Self-spreading vaccines—also known as transmissible or self-propagating vaccines—are genetically engineered to move through populations in the same way as communicable diseases, but rather than causing disease, they confer protection. The vision is that a small number of individuals in the target population could be vaccinated, and the vaccine strain would then circulate in the population much like a pathogenic virus. These vaccines could dramatically increase vaccine coverage in human or animal populations without requiring each individual to be inoculated. This technology is currently aimed primarily at animal populations.”

There are 2 main types of self-spreading vaccines: recombinant vector vaccines and live viral vaccines. recombinant vector vaccines combine the elements of a pathogenic virus that induce immunity (removing the portion that causes disease) with a transmissible viral vector.”

Self-spreading vaccines have already been used to protect wild rabbits from myxomatosis and to control Sin Nombre virus in rodent populations.”

In the event of a grave public health threat, self-spreading vaccines could potentially be used to broadly inoculate human populations. Like the approach in animals, only a small number of vaccinated individuals would be required in order to confer protection to a larger susceptible population, thus eliminating the need for mass vaccination operations, including PODs."

Covid-19 vaccines approved in the US and Europe included the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines, as well as the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) and AstraZenica. The mechanism of these products is inject mRNA or DNA to force the cells of the individual to produce the spike protein, in the belief that the spike protein itself was not harmful in itself.

Bill Gates Got A Hall Pass?

Hall_Pass_PosterBill and Melinda Gates are divorcing. He’s asked for privacy, which has launched a cacophony of chortles among the health freedom groups.  Media reports say that he asked for (and got) what is known in the vernacular as a "hall pass."  It's an amnesia exemption to your marital or relationship agreement that allows you to canoodle with someone other than your significant other.  There was a cute movie by the same name many years ago. None of the guys were able to act on their Hall Pass when they finally got one. That's called respect. Love. Honor. Those vow'y words many of us utter(ed) on an altar, or under a chuppah or elsewhere.   Gates is said to have had his one weekend a year (wanna buy a bridge in Brooklyn?) with his ex-girlfriend with the permission of his wife.

Some would call him an iconoclast. His ability to think beyond the normal and to new heights are what allowed him to create Microsoft.

Some would call him a big, fat, misogynistic jerk for whom the rules have never applied. But this jerk has been GIVEN control of the actual planet as if God. His money sprinkled like Drakkar Noir to dull the stench of insanity and grease the wheels of his agendas. Smart man with gobs money he doles out = able to break the rules.  And women are the main victims.





Tucker Carlson Asks the Verboten Question

Media, Doctors, Friends, Even Family Run From Questions

Tucker: How many Americans have died after taking COVID vaccines?

Transcribed by Anne Dachel

Here’s a very simple question: How many Americans have died after taking the COVID vaccine?

It’s not Americans who’ve been killed by the virus.That’s a huge number. It’s how many Americans have died after getting the vaccines designed to prevent the virus. .

Do you know the answer to that question?

Do you know anything about the downside?

We know a lot about the upside of vaccines. We’ve been completely in favor of vulnerable people taking vaccines, but what about the potential risks?

You’d think you would know more about that than you do.

We talk a lot about vaccines constantly, not just on this show but in this this country.

Joe Biden was on TV yesterday talking about vaccines. He wants you to get one. Everyone in authority wants you to get one. …

If you haven’t had your shot you’re under enormous pressure to get your shot.

You understand that soon you may not be able to fly on commercial airlines or go to the office or send your children to school if you don’t have the shot.

Meanwhile the social pressure is enormous…So there’s a lot of pressure to comply.

Earth to @ElonMusk: Asperger's Went The Way of Pluto

B7146BD8-5B21-4714-B7A7-A285C4C69F55
We finally got a bit of Autism Awareness Month nonsense, 8 days into May. Elon Musk declared he has Asperger's on Saturday Night Live.  Does he know that Asperger's as a diagnosis went the way of Pluto as a planet?

That's not even the big story. According to the WaPo story below, SNL cast members were aghast that Elon Musk, who has NOT been on board the COVID rocket into the atmosFear, was asked to host. Lorne Michaels was willing to "excuse" anyone from their job if they were too traumatized by working with someone not lock, stock and barrel into Covidphobia.

I follow Elon Musk on Twitter, and he is really quite funny.  Look, I know I sometimes say or post strange things, but that’s just how my brain works. To anyone I’ve offended, I just want to say: I reinvented electric cars and I’m sending people to Mars on a rocket ship. Did you think I was also going to be a chill, normal dude?”

One of my favorite Tweets from him goes something like this:  "If there’s ever a scandal about me, I hope they will call it Elongate." 

Come on!  That's funny stuff.  Not sure SNL was able to tap into his brand of humor, I haven't watched since the Coneheads came to Earth from... France.  His humor is not properly politically correct and probably caused the writers to call their shrinks to up their anxiety meds. Good for him.

Elon Musk reveals he has Asperger’s syndrome during SNL monologue

On the spectrum or not, I hope Musk will consider using some of his gagillions to help people who are anywhere along the spectrum, from the most severely affected to the Aspergeriest of Aspergergians.


High Five to Motherhood

5 Kids Cathy
By Cathy Jameson

My youngest child’s recent birthday marked a monumental moment for me and my husband.  We are now parents of 5 teenagers.  Five!  No wonder life’s been a bit busier than usual.

No matter their ages, though, life’s always been busy for us.  Some of the busy is good – it keeps us out of the house and active in our community.  Some of the busy can sometimes be overwhelming, for both the kids and for me.  For each of us, this year has had more stressors thanks to COVID19.  Despite those stressors, well, and because of those, it’s been one of the most trying years ever.  When life’s been flipped upside down, especially by someone or something else, it makes it hard to move in a forward direction.  Getting to celebrate a happy birthday in the middle of one of our busiest weeks put the biggest smile of my face.  That time to pause, to focus on life, and to celebrate it (with cake!) put things into perspective for me. 

We’re still here.

We’re still doing things.

We’re still taking time to be thankful.  

Being thankful for happy celebrations is easy.  Being thankful to be living in a world where the new normal is anything but normal takes effort.  When I look at what’s going on in the news and hear how others are living in fear, I see a world that I don’t recognize anymore.  Society seems to have lost its mind with a novel virus that’s got a pretty high recovery rate.  Terrified of humans and interacting with them, I’ve never seen anything like it in my life! 

Life, as interrupted and upside down as it is, must go on.  My kids can’t do everything they used to with some places still closed, but they can pursue living outside of other people’s comfort zones.  So they do. 

They’ve participated on sports teams and excelled.

They’ve joined afterschool clubs and learned.

They’ve joined other families for get togethers and enjoyed it.

Only Women Bleed. One Another is Really Some Another.

Me tooAlice Cooper wrote a song decades ago, a ballad, which was rare for him, called "Only Women bleed." Today, there are movements meant to empower and protect women from all manner of abuse and disrespect. Most recently, "MeToo" took on the patriarchal use of sex in the entertainment and other industries. Women stood up to fight and protect one another. Or, I should say, "Some another." The movement that crafted a knitted cap in the design of female genitalia, has never embraced or supported the mothers who watched their children fall into autism in a "non-genetic" way. You know what I mean, through vaccine injury. We've been sounding alarms for some three decades that autism is a man made epidemic.

Today, thousands of women are reporting changes to their menstrual cycles coinciding with administration of a Covid vaccine and/or proximity to those who have received the vaccine. And guess what? WOMEN are calling them liars.  Yesterday, WTNH here in Connecticut ran a story about this titled: Can Covid 19 Vaccines Affect My Period?

And the first MeTooButNotYou comment from a female (who might just live in my town) came charging in, "These woman are NOT physicians."  Wow!

I commented as Kim Rossi:

There are FB groups w thousands of women whose cycles have been altered or “rebooted” post menopause. Women talking to women about changes to their bodies. It’s how we pass along knowledge to our doctors who can then follow up on what might be happening. Science begins with observations. A dear friend who is not C-vaxxed but who works w a vaxxed population got a period last month 2 years post menopause completion. mRNA is newer technology, and reports, anecdotal because we are in a global clinical trial, can be helpful. It’s troubling and maybe misogynistic that Facebook keeps shutting down the groups where women are seeking support to manage their adverse reactions. Remember - hysteria comes from the Greek word for Uterus. Women who ask questions are often dismissed or called hysterical. Stay well, everyone!

The cycle of abuse Alice Cooper wrote about continues today, but the "man" is not a husband (or ex) he's the CDC, Pharma, Public Health and all the men and women who refuse to open their ears, eyes and hearts to the damage.


Man got his woman to take his seed
He got the power, oh, she got the need
She spends her life through pleasing up her man
She feeds him dinner or anything she can
She cries alone at night too often
He smokes and drinks and don't come home at all

Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed

Man makes your hair gray, he's your life's mistake
All you're really lookin' for is an even break
He lies right at you, you know you hate this game
He slaps you once in a while and you live and love in pain
She cries alone at night too often
He smokes and drinks and don't come home at all




Molecular Diagnostics Lab in Milford, Connecticut Announces SARS CoV-2 Detection Test Including Variants

S_gene_screen_with_E484K_mutation_for_5-5-21_Release
This routine DNA sequence electropherogram covering the ACE2 receptor binding domain shows 7 vertical black bars from left to right, pointing to 7 key nucleotides identified as A, G, T, G, A, T and A in the S gene of SARS-CoV-2 in a nasopharyngeal swab specimen taken from a patient with acute respiratory infection. The nucleotide A pointed by the 5th bar is a mutated base, indicating an E484K amino acid mutation (G>A nucleotide mutation). All other 6 black bars point to wildtype bases, confirming the lack of K417N, K417T, L452R, S477N, E484Q, S494P and N501Y mutations in this virus isolate. All known newly emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern are associated with at least one of the 8 amino acid mutations identified in this sequence. Specimens harboring any of these 8 amino acid mutations will be further sequenced for A67V, Δ69/70, T95I, Δ144Y, Y145del, H146del, W152C and V1176F mutations for B.1.1.7, B.1.351, B.1.427, B.1.429, B.1.525, B.1.526, B.1.617, B.1.168, P.1 and P.2 variant differentiation. Timely recognition of B.1.617 and B.1.168 is especially important in view of the recent rising number of these two variants reported in India, said Dr. Sin Hang Lee, director of Milford Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory.

Warm congratulations to Dr. Sin Han Lee:

First of its kind SARS-CoV-2 detection by partial N gene sequencing now publicly available at CLIA Certified Milford Connecticut laboratory

Becomes the nation’s provider of Covid testing at highest level of accuracy

With reflex spike protein gene sequencing for K417N, K417T, L452R, S477N, E484K, E484Q, S494P and N501Y mutations

MILFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sin Hang Lee, MD, director of Milford Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory, announced today that his CLIA-certified laboratory has been granted a permit to perform diagnostic testing for SARS-CoV-2 by nested RT-PCR followed by DNA sequencing on nasopharyngeal swab samples and residues of RNA extracts previously tested by RT-qPCR assays. The CLIA certification was officially granted on April 29, 2021 through the State of Connecticut’s Department of Public Health. Milford Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory now becomes the sole CLIA certified laboratory in the nation to offer COVID-19 RNA testing at this level of accuracy to the general public.

“This test is for individuals who need definitive molecular diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection and want to know if the infection is caused by one of the newly emerging virus variants of concern. While a few laboratories are selecting only samples with high viral loads for variant identification by sequencing, Milford Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory routinely sequences all positive samples by the Sanger method. The Sanger method not only can determine key mutations in samples with low viral load, but also can eliminate PCR false-positive results,” said Dr. Lee.

Acceptable test materials are nasopharyngeal swab specimens in virus transport media and RNA extract residues of previously tested samples. Patients and health care providers interested in submitting samples for testing may download a requisition form at Milford Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory’s website. Click on http://www.dnalymetest.com/images/Requisition_V2_Form_2021_Covid.pdf for further details.

Expected turnaround time for this test is three business days after receipt of samples, said Dr. Lee.

Who Moved My Life? Sniff, Scurry, Hem and Haw.

Mouse shotMany years ago, back in 1998, when cell phones were still very dumb, there was a business book called "Who Moved My Cheese" that used a maze allegory to describe what  people do when confronted with change. I've been thinking about this book a lot as I watch folks around me make their choices during this the Covidian Era.  Most of my peers are going forward with life, smartly attentive, but mostly unafraid.  Some are moderately afraid. And others are hobbled with fear. 

There are four kinds of people: Early adopters, majority adopters, late adopters and laggards. I think most of us in the AofA family are early adopters.  We saw a need to make changes for our children after their autism diagnosis, and we boy we sure did. In the Covid world, we are surrounded by laggards who rely on the old ways, the ways that have  harmed us over and over, to "save them."  Read the summary and let me know what you think. Someone at Wiki took the time to create a Cliff Notes (boy does that age me!) version of the book:

Allegorically, Who Moved My Cheese? features four characters: two mice, "Sniff" and "Scurry," and two Littlepeople, human metaphor, "Hem" and "Haw." (The names of the Littlepeople are taken from the phrase "hem and haw," a term for indecisiveness.) They live in a maze, a representation of one's environment, and look for cheese, representative of happiness and success. Initially without cheese, each group, the mice and humans, paired off and traveled the lengthy corridors searching for cheese. One day both groups happen upon a cheese-filled corridor at "Cheese Station C." Content with their find, the humans establish routines around their daily intake of cheese, slowly becoming arrogant in the process.

One day Sniff and Scurry arrive at "Cheese Station C" to find no cheese left, but they are not surprised. Noticing the cheese supply dwindling, they have mentally prepared beforehand for the arduous but inevitable task of finding more cheese. Leaving "Cheese Station C" behind, they begin their hunt for new cheese together. Later that day, Hem and Haw arrive at Cheese Station C only to find the same thing, no cheese. Angered and annoyed, Hem demands, "Who moved my cheese?" The humans have counted on the cheese supply to be constant, and so are unprepared for this eventuality. After deciding that the cheese is indeed gone they get angry at the unfairness of the situation. Haw suggests a search for new cheese, but Hem is dead-set in his disappointment and dismisses the proposal.

The Criminalization of Dissent

Self Defense AdAn important read, thanks to Laura Hayes for the heads up:  The Criminalization of Dissent by CJ Hopkins

One of the hallmarks of totalitarian systems is the criminalization of dissent. Not just the stigmatization of dissent or the demonization of dissent, but the formal criminalization of dissent, and any other type of opposition to the official ideology of the totalitarian system. Global capitalism has been inching its way toward this step for quite some time, and now, apparently, it is ready to take it.

Germany has been leading the way. For over a year now, anyone questioning or protesting the “Covid emergency measures” or the official Covid-19 narrative has been demonized by the government and the media, and, sadly, but not completely unexpectedly, the majority of the German public. And now such dissent is officially “extremism.”

Yes, that’s right, in “New Normal” Germany, if you dissent from the official state ideology, you are now officially a dangerous “extremist.” The German Intelligence agency (the “BfV”) has even invented a new category of “extremists” in order to allow themselves to legally monitor anyone suspected of being “anti-democratic and/or delegitimizing the state in a way that endangers security,” like … you know, non-violently protesting, or speaking out against, or criticizing, or satirizing, the so-called “New Normal.”

Naturally, I’m a little worried, as I have engaged in most of these “extremist” activities. My thoughtcrimes are just sitting there on the Internet waiting to be scrutinized by the BfV. They’re probably Google-translating this column right now, compiling a list of all the people reading it, and their Facebook friends and Twitter followers, and professional associates, and family members, and anyone any of the aforementioned people have potentially met with, or casually mentioned, who might have engaged in similar thoughtcrimes.

You probably think I’m joking, don’t you? I’m not joking. Not even slightly.  Read more here. While you can.


My Vax Is Better Than Your Vax! Mine is Better Than Yours!!!

Putin gun
Check out my guns, ladies and gentlemen, aaaalllll of them.

(Thank you to PJ for the heads up!)

My stars and garters, could we be on someone's radar?  Little old us? Pshaw... 

Is Russia’s Covid vaccine anything more than a political weapon? Observers say the Sputnik V jab is aimed more at sowing political division than fighting coronavirus

It seems The Guardian UK may have picked up on our observation that the Sputnik V from Russia has a Twitter account that is basically used for political bragging rights. Russia's Sputnik V On Twitter: I Must Break You

How this surprises anyone, that Vladimir Putin's nation would puff out its chest and declare superiority, is beyond us.

Hitting back via its official Sputnik V Twitter account, Russia has denied the vaccine is a political tool, or that safety or production capacity are potential issues. “Politicisation of vaccines is unethical and costing lives,” read a typical recent tweet. “Sputnik is undoubtedly one of the best vaccines in the world,” said another.

Meanwhile, "back at the ranch," Americans are being "deplatformed" (a ridiculous new word brought to you by Google, Facebook and others) for speaking out on vaccination and medical rights and safety while this punk of a Vaccine is tripping about the Internet without a care.

I was instantly reminded of an old advertising jingle for Ken-L-Ration canned dog food. My dog's better 'cuz he eats Ken0L-Ration.


Johns Hopkins on Self-Spreading, Self-Propagating, Transmissible Vaccines

Self spreading vaccines.by Ginger Taylor

In 2018, The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Center for Health Security, published Technologies to Address Global Catastrophic Biological Risks.

Among the technologies discussed in the paper, are "Self-Spreading Vaccines."  Vaccines that only need be given to a portion of the population, and are then become communicable between individuals, like a virus.

The number of questions, concerns, and issues that become relevant with the revelation that this technology exists, and is being used on animals, is more vast than I can enumerate here.  So I will simply share with you Page 47 of the document.

"WHAT IS THE TECHNOLOGY?

Self-spreading vaccines—also known as transmissible or self-propagating vaccines—are genetically engineered to move through populations in the same way as communicable diseases, but rather than causing disease, they confer protection. The vision is that a small number of individuals in the target population could be vaccinated, and the vaccine strain would then circulate in the population much like a pathogenic virus. These vaccines could dramatically increase vaccine coverage in human or animal populations without requiring each individual to be inoculated. This technology is currently aimed primarily at animal populations. Because most infectious diseases are zoonotic, controlling disease in animal populations would also reduce the risk to humans.

There are 2 main types of self-spreading vaccines: recombinant vector vaccines and live viral vaccines. Recombinant vector vaccines combine the elements of a pathogenic virus that induce immunity (removing the portion that causes disease) with a transmissible viral vector. Cyto-megalovirus is one candidate vector for recombinant vaccines, because it is highly species-specific and moderately transmissible. Live viral vaccines are attenuated, meaning that the vaccine viruses are much less pathogenic than wild-type and would be similar to the oral polio vaccine or the live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) in that those vaccines can sometimes transmit from person to person.

Although there are substantial technical challenges in genetically engineering viruses, synthetic biology tools such as CRISPR/Cas9 are likely to aid researchers in overcoming these hurdles in the coming years. Self-spreading vaccines have already been used to protect wild rabbits from myxomatosis and to control Sin Nombre virus in rodent populations.

Additional work is targeting Ebola virus in apes and bats, Lassa virus in rats, and bovine tuberculosis in badgers.

WHAT PROBLEM DOES THIS SOLVE?
