Note: It's been some time since we heard from Levi Quackenboss. This most recent post is sure to raise eyebrows and maybe even temperatures. Levi pulls no punches. While we're all coping with isolation or in many cases zero privacy at all, I'm reminded of the song, What the World Needs Now, Is Love Sweet Love. Jackie Shannon is still performing - you can see her beautiful face on her website here. When I listen, my memory takes me to our kitchen in Attleboro, Massachusetts in 1966 and the smell of lemon Pledge, as sun streamed through the shutters. Safe times. When being in Mom's kitchen was the happiest room in the house. Now, I'm Mom. And my office and kitchen and sitting area are all wrapped up in the end of our small ranch house. It's the only thing, that there's just, too little of.... Stay well.
Seven Silver Linings of the Pandemic
A few weeks ago, as I was desperately looking for an upside to a national shutdown, a post about the Earth healing from pollution came my way. The world’s air was cleaner, the water was getting clearer. That was nice, I suppose. That was something to hold on to in such a crap situation. And then people finally started washing their hands for the first time in their lives, which was a miracle in itself, hopefully that habit will stay. Then homeschooling and homebirth came to the masses; both significant sub-movements of the health freedom and parental rights movement. As long as one has money to put food on the table, it’s lovely being home in the evening to go on a sunset walk and read books to your kids and tuck them into bed.
I try to hold onto these thoughts because this shutdown has been more divisive—in my personal life and in this community of ours— than the 2016 election. I have felt friendships die. I have read accusations that I don't think I'll ever get over.
But it’s been three weeks now and I’m happy to report that my relentless optimism has bounced back three-fold on this wild ride, and I want to give you all my seven major pandemic wins to bounce around in your brains while you wander from your pantry to the sofa and back to the pantry again.
- The whole world is waking up to the corruption at the W.H.O.
This massive pandemic win is only in the beginning stages of unfolding this week and I can’t wait to see where it goes. Today the President announced that the U.S. would be withholding funding from the W.H.O. because not only did their incompetence bungle the initial response to COVID-19, but they assisted China in covering it up while inexplicably praising China’s actions and alleged "transparency."
Senator Graham echoed the same defunding message this afternoon and assured Americans that there would be no W.H.O. funding in the next Appropriations Committee hearing. Last year the U.S. gave a total of $500M to the W.H.O., so this is no small potatoes.
For those of you who don’t know, leading up to 2017, the Gates Foundation and China rallied hard for an Ethiopian warlord named Tedros Adhanom to become the W.H.O. Director despite his crimes against humanity, and despite the fact he is not a medical doctor. He defers completely to China, going so far as nominating a fellow Zimbabwean warlord as a Goodwill Ambassador to the W.H.O. at China’s request, because the guy allowed China to rape Zimbabwe of its natural resources with impunity. Here is an absolutely outstanding roundup of this madman’s resume.
Yesterday a few U.S. Senators began calling for the W.H.O. Director's resignation, and tonight there is a republican resolution for defunding the W.H.O. until he resigns. The brightest part of this event isn’t whether or not we are directly impacted by any decisions of the W.H.O. Director, but more so that that our fellow Americans have had their dreams shattered and realized that the W.H.O. is not an unbiased nearly-Godly public health entity doing what’s best for all of mankind.
- The N.I.H.’s Anthony Fauci has taken a hard tumble.
In just 14 days, Dr. Anthony Fauci went from having his face featured on New York cupcakes to trending #3 on Twitter with #FireFauci. It’s been a beautiful ball of fire. He’s been sidelined at press conferences, he’s been contradicted, he can’t keep his story straight, and he’s pivoted 180-degrees on whether America will return to normal soon because his buddy Bill Gates, captain of Team Apocalypse, told him to.
This little thug has multi-million-dollar conflicts of interest at the N.I.H. and he’s telling us that there will be no picking up and continuing on until his new vaccine hits the market. Do you have any idea how much money he’s commanded from taxpayers? For SARS, for MERS, for ebola, for zika. Thirty years to make an AIDS vaccine that doesn’t exist. How is this guy still employed?
Have you ever looked at his Wikipedia? You know how it is when you’ve needed to write your resume and you’re like, “Damn, how do I make myself look like I’ve accomplished something when really I’ve been treading water for years, praying not to get fired?” That’s Anthony Fauci’s Wikipedia. He’s made “important scientific observations,” and he’s “contributed to some understandings,” he’s “outlined some mechanisms,” he “developed some strategies.” I’m not making this up. He has never produced one FDA-licensed vaccine for any of the billions of dollars he’s demanded from Congress.
He facilitates pharmaceutical money laundering, that’s what he does.
The masses have watched day after day as he’s refused to endorse a 30-cent potential cure for COVID-19 and Americans have had enough. He’s standing by and letting people die while the world waits, and waits, and waits for his vaccine.
Yesterday he almost started laughing when he said, “I hope we don’t have so many people infected that we actually have that herd immunity.” There was an inappropriately huge smile on his face when he said it. Don’t tell me this is about saving lives; it’s about not rendering his vaccine useless by the time it comes to market, and Americans are getting a big corrupt spoonful of what we’ve known for years.
- Infants are missing vaccination appointments and SIDS rates are dropping.
Not every infant, don’t get me wrong. Pediatricians are doing a full court press begging new parents to keep their “well baby” appointments as an essential reason to leave their houses. Do you remember what it was like to have a two-month-old in your house? Would you have taken your precious baby to a doctor during a pandemic? Me neither.
Some will, some won’t, but here are the facts: 3,500 babies die of SIDS each year. That’s almost 10 babies lost per day, every day of the week. If half of all new American parents skip the two or four-month vaccination appointment from March 15 to May 1, that’s 221 babies who don’t die in those 45 days. If more than half skip, that’s more babies who don’t die. If all parents skip, it’s 442 babies saved in six weeks.
Do you know who tracks this data? The CDC. They have it all. There’s a federal form that even asks pathologists about which vaccines were given to the child in the last 72 hours before death.
