  2. HUGE EXCLUSIVE: New Report Reveals COVID-19 Was a Planned Bioweapon by China’s People’s Liberation Army WWW.THEGATEWAYPUNDIT.COM Guest post by Lawrence Sellin and Anna Chen COVID-19 was a planned bioweapon of China’s People’s Liberation Army. Already in 2005, Colonel Ji-Wei Guo of the People’s Liberation Army’s Southwest Hospital, Third... Start of the article by Sellin and Chen: === Quote "Already in 2005, Colonel Ji-Wei Guo of the People’s Liberation Army’s Southwest Hospital, Third Military Medical University in Chongqing, China described a new type of bioweapon. "Colonel Guo rejected the clumsy, traditional biological weapons that produced mass destruction, ones that: 'depend on microbiology, especially bacteriology, which uses destructive bacteria, viruses, and toxic living bodies obtained directly from the natural world. These weapons are subject to nature, are difficult to control, and have irreversible effects.' "China would use biotechnology to create new forms of designed 'biotechnological weapons' that would be 'controllable' and 'recoverable' for which China had sole possession of the vaccine or antidote. "Such weapons would be highly contagious, but of low lethality and capable of being deployed under 'pre-war' conditions. Although artificially created, the new bioweapons would retain 'plausible deniability,' that is, could be attributed to a disease of natural origin. "Thus, spawned the PLA’s massive joint bioweapon development-vaccine production program, which incorporated China’s universities and their access to international knowledge and skills, particularly those from the United States." === End Quote Please read the rest at the link.

  4. This Week in the World Affairs Brief THE PROFESSIONAL REBELLION AGAINST VACCINE MANDATES by Joel Skousen Ayn Rand’s classic libertarian novel “Atlas Shrugged” describes a rebellion of the productive class against the encroaching socialist state. Her mythical hero, John Galt, encourages the most productive and essential corporate leaders in the nation to shrug the world of socialist burdens off of their shoulders and quit—knowing that without their skills and innovative leadership society under socialism will collapse. All these hard-working people retreat to Galt’s Gulch in the Rocky Mountains and prepare to rebuild later. There are similarities to this theme now as some of the best people are forced out of their jobs over these totalitarian Covid vaccine mandates. Sadly, the vaunted leadership class that Ayn envisioned leading the way has utterly failed to fight against the lies and deceptions of the false pandemic. They have either joined the conspiracy as knowing conspirators or become mindless yes-men and cheerleaders for these ruthless vaccines and freedom-wrecking Covid mandates. Instead there is a small but growing class of hard-working professionals who do the critical work of airlines, hospitals, railroads and ferries who are balking at the vaccine mandate, calling in sick, filing lawsuits and even quitting their jobs rather than submit to this tyranny. Just as in her fictional writing, as good people are forced out, it is creating havoc with the economy as shortages and delays get worse every day. The big question this week is, “Is it enough and will they be able to outlast the Powers-That-Be arrayed against them?”

  7. I know people are sick and tired of looking at exposés of the pandemic scam. It's like people giving long presentations to say the sky is blue over and over when the government and fake news media keep saying there is no color in the sky. I certainly know I'm sick and tired of it. But the following presentation caught my attention. Dr. Peter McCullough is a doctor and scientist who has a large media presence. He goes on shows like Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Joe Rogan, Newsmax, etc., and also appears at federal and state Congressional committees. In fact, he goes wherever a large audience will have him--for example Daystar, a Christian TV network where his message goes out to well over a billion, not million, people. On the other side, he's constantly targeted and smeared by the typical fake news media crowd. Well, I looked and saw for myself. He sounds convincing to me. MUST SEE: Dr. Peter McCullough Issues Warning on Therapeutic Nihilism and Untested Vaccines - "Unbelievable Atrocity" Is Unfolding (VIDEO) WWW.THEGATEWAYPUNDIT.COM Winning the War Against Therapeutic Nihilism and the Rush to Replace Trusted Treatments with Untested Novel Therapies Dr. Peter McCullough gave an extensive rundown on everything Covid-19... His approach to the coronavirus is to treat it with things that have always worked rather than a novel experiment on everyone. That means early treatment with medicine, which has been showing absolute success all over the world where it is used. He thinks the war against medicine by those in power and their bullying to get everyone to take an experimental vaccine will go down in history as one of the big atrocities of the 21st century. Vaccination in the middle of a pandemic is madness and he shows why (see the slides to the video below for facts and figures). He doesn't use names, but he is just as critical of Trump as he is of Biden on this score. Despite my advocacy for Trump, I fully agree with him. He recommends a publication from The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) on home treatment of COVID-19. You can get a PDF here: A Guide to Home-Based COVID Treatment: Step-By-Step Doctors’ Plan That Could Save Your Life If you want to go directly to the video of his presentation, go here: WINNING THE WAR AGAINST THERAPEUTIC NIHILISM - DR. PETER MCCULLOUGH RUMBLE.COM (AAPS Speech - 2021.10.01) Winning the War Against Therapeutic Nihilism and the Rush to Replace Trusted Treatments with Untested Novel Therapies Dr. Peter McCullough gave an extensive rundown on... There's a link to the slides here: Slides From Peter McCullough, MD Oct 1, 2021 Lecture Also, during the talk he recommended the following book that was released a couple of weeks ago: COVID-19 and the Global Predators: We are the Prey by Peter Breggin and Ginger Breggin. (Paid link.) It is being sold at Amazon, at least so far. The title is easy to dismiss as conspiracy stuff, so here is Breggin's bio blurb at Amazon to show his credentials: For that matter, here is Dr. Peter McCullough's bio at America Out Loud. If you go to his Wikipedia page (see here), it calls him a spreader of "COVID-19 misinformation" because he says things like "tens of thousands of fatalities attributed to the COVID-19 vaccines." But then it goes on to list his appearances at different government committees and prime time news shows. That, in my book, is proof-positive that he is over target. Politics-wise, Wikipedia is trash on the same level as CNN. Go on and look at the video and at the other links in this post and come to your own conclusion. I came to mine. You probably know what that is. Michael

  11. Andrew Bernstein has (as well as speaking out strongly against election fraud, CRT, and the Left, in general)...For example: "Stand up, America! Speak out! Get vaccinated or not as your best judgment tells you—I am. But resist to the end, the government’s attempt to force vaccination on healthy adults who reject it. The same regarding any proposed lockdowns. Are unvaccinated persons a threat to vaccinated ones? Even if they are, they constitute a vastly lesser threat than a nanny state government moving toward totalitarianism." https://www.facebook.com/andrew.bernstein.94/posts/10165769365045346 "It is difficult to fathom that there are still intelligent people who deny the widespread voter fraud of the 2020 presidential election. Are they not looking at the evidence? How many dead people voted—how many people voted in a state they no longer lived in—how many votes were received from phony addresses, and so forth. An honest person loses credibility if they deny boatloads of such evidence. "Further, Ayn Rand taught us to integrate, to synthesize a given data point into the wider knowledge we hold. This is the Democrats of whom we speak, the party that controls the notoriously corrupt big city machines, that has cheated egregiously in the past—Richard Daley, Chicago, 1960, anyone? When they regard Trump as evil, are we to expect that they would blanch at any transgression that would enable them to remove him from office? They would stop at nothing to defeat Trump.

  13. "Not a clue." An honest answer, at least, since this person has previously admitted to ignoring counter-claims and evidence presented to him. And yet, he proceeds to answer as if he did: "And think about this: how far away from Rand has your mind shifted? " This is an argument from intimidation, presented with no justification. "...stay away from the online tabloids." Another shameful attempt at package-dealing; this argument treats all dissent from the official narrative as "tabloid", when, in fact, there have been many arguments presented here against the official narrative from what would be considered respectable scientists and doctors who were a part of that narrative, including Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of the mRNA technology used with the Covid shots: 'Single most qualified' mRNA expert speaks about vaccine risks after he says YouTube banned his video NEWS.YAHOO.COM The man who invented the mRNA technology used in some coronavirus vaccines says he was censored by YouTube for sharing his concerns... Now, Dr. Malone is not some "holistic healer" with a degree in feng shue from the University of Tijuana: He's the INVENTOR of the mRNA tech used in the vaccines. He's not even saying don't take the shot: So, then, why ignore him and attempt to shut down debate? Well... This is not posted for the benefit of those saying "stay away from tabloids", mind you, since they have admitted that they don't even read the information presented ("lalala, I cant hear you!, morons, lalala!" he said, with fingers in his ears) , so they are in no position to judge whether or not others have done their due diligence, let alone actually address any of the arguments and information themselves. They also ignore the evidence of people recovering from Covid due to the use of alternatives to the shots, like HCQ and Ivermectin, which have a long history of use already and are demonstrated to be safer. To top it off, they ignore the lack of transparency on behalf of the establishment, and that, rather than address the arguments and counter-evidence, they opt for censorship and de-platforming and intimidation to silence dissent. Because of these evasions, such people are easily dismissed from the argument. But it is helpful to look at what's happening here as a microcosm of the situation at large. Dismissing counter-evidence and dissent, not based on the facts of the argument, but because it strays from the official narrative reminds me of an excerpt from The Ideas of Ayn Rand by Ronald Merrill: "...this is inadequate; it refutes the arguer, perhaps, but no the argument." And I anticipate the response that one is permitted to dismiss the counter-arguments based on some "Peikovian doctrine of the arbitrary assertion." But, as Robert Campbell has pointed out, in his essay on the subject, the problem with that is, in order to determine whether or not an argument is arbitrary, one has to actually look at the evidence first. Now, if it were proven that the arguments in this case were arbitrary, then there would be more justification, but that's something that the naysayers have not done, and have self-admittedly refused to do, to refuse to even look at the evidence, let alone assess it rationally and objectively. But because they have not only refused to look at counter-arguments and evidence, as some so eagerly admit, with a sense of pride, but have also engaged in arguments from intimidation, I don't think they're even attempting to pull an "arbitrary assertion" line of defense. No, what has been demonstrated is more of what Rand wrote about in "Extremism, or the Art of Smearing". Just as the "moderates" attempted to lump together the John Birch Society with the Communist Party and the Klu Klux Klan, so does the equation of all current critics of the official medical narrative with "tabloids" and such. Such package-dealing is an attempt to by bypass addressing the arguments and counter-evidence by false association, and it is shameful, as shameful as the attempt to justify one's shortcomings in this debate by using the "argument of intimidation" of "you guys aren't being Objectivists", when it's clear that the one abandoning reason and objectivity is the one who boasts of evading the facts and evidence presented by counter-arguments to the mainstream, while engaging in "arguments from intimidation", "package-dealing", and "the art of smearing." (And, most tellingly, when on the ropes, defends his inability to defend his argument with kindergarten-level ad-hominem of the following: ("you're a moron" and "epistemological duh-duh"... a step above "you're a doody-head", I suppose, but not by much...) And who else does that? The sham trials of the "kangaroo courts" employed by dictatorships. Anyway...let this be a teachable moment. The moral of the story: "Friends don't let friends be an enabler of sham trials and kangaroo courts and dictatorships." #themoreyouknow

  14. The AMA is a woke joke. Go to their website most of their efforts are focused on equity(medicine via marxist/racism). They promote vaccine mandates , and mandates of experimental substances , they promote the use of non approved vaccines with the misleading proviso that Pfizer vaxxes are fully approved, the truth is one Pfizer product is fully approved, meaning that a recipient of said product which have legal recourse in the case of harm or negligence, but that recourse is not afforded to recipients of the EUA/ experimental products which are the only ones currently available. They are an organization of marxist obfuscators. Do not believe me, go to their publications and statements and judge for yourself. If your doctor belongs to a hospital group or needs admission privileges to practice, they are beholden to the strictures of 'standard of a care' any deviation from those strictures have serious professional and financial repercussions. If you are familiar with the standards and agree with them and realize your doctor is following them irrespective of their personal medical opinions then you are acting rationally. But if you are acting on your doctor's 'advice' without regard to how they are formulating their 'advice' , you are acting on the principle of argument from authority and have removed yourself from the rational realm. People lie all the time , a lot, for loads of reasons , all the time, that's reality.

  18. This kind of argument is half-right, as far as it goes; "half-right" because it omits the intrusion of government into free enterprise. The government over-reach of mandates, even if only implied, and the threats against businesses that don't comply, threaten to take out the element of choice for both the business and consumer. (Such as when cities or even entire states require ALL businesses and schools to requires masks or vaccinations, eliminating the choice altogether while imposing penalties for non-compliance, which is the key word, here). In such cases (and excluding the examples of drunken passengers and the like, which was a shameful attempt of the original post at package-dealing), there may be legitimate cases for rational civil disobedience, dependent upon context. On this, Rand has a good discussion of rational civil disobedience vs. the kind practiced by the "student rebellion" of the 60's (which are comparable to the Antifa/BLM riots of today). Her analysis, couple with her comments on the validity of quarantine of the contagious vs. the evil of forced vaccinations of the healthy, are appropriate, here; it's a safe bet that she would have argued for civil disobedience regarding the latter (again, in context of not violating rights, but as challenging the abrogation of rights by overbearing government, and when they take away free competition and choice). And her concluding line is both prescient and unfortunate, but all-too-applicable, today: "Politically, mass civil disobedience is appropriate only as a prelude to civil war—as the declaration of a total break with a country’s political institutions." On that, one more quote from Rand on "Defiance" and civil war: "A dictatorship cannot take hold in America...Not yet." Now, Rand said that in 1971, in the context of that time. Fast forward to 2021, in the context of our time, and those words are sadly outdated, now...

  21. When do you decide to trust someone else over your own judgment? And how do you choose between conflicting voices that you deem more knowledgeable than yourself? What about the health of your doctor? Does that play a factor in your evaluation of his/her expertise? What about principles that you can trust above even professional experience? For myself, I like to hear the conflicting views of experts and 'trust' the ones who make more sense. I find it interesting how many health 'experts' are clearly unhealthy, and I wouldn't trust someone's opinion who can't even take care of themself. As for principles, I think doing something natural is always the safest option. It might not always be optimal, but it can never be that bad. If something unnatural is touted as being optimal, you always have to consider that if there's bad information involved, the reality might be terrible.

  28. Peter, You just wrote: "I would say it means..." There's the problem. Those words from Trump don't mean what you say they mean. Here is what Trump's words do mean, in his own words, and this is literal, not from the "I would say" universe: The single most important thing is to "solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020." If that single most important thing is not done, the consequence will be that "Republicans will not be voting in ’22 and ’24." That's what Trump's words mean. He's not commanding people to not vote. He's saying he knows the character of MAGA people and--on their own volition--they will not come out to vote if they believe the election will be a farce like in 2020. (Apropos, I think Trump would suck on a dill pickle in public before he would ever use the word "volition" in campaign and PR mode. ) In fact, I know I can find other quotes of Trump saying this same meaning openly and in clearer terms if I ever took the time. I've heard it several times. But that's a total waste of time because pretty soon he's going to say it again. And again. And again. (Lots of rallies coming.) What's worse is that he's right. Anyone familiar with Trump's style and history knows that he would never say "don't vote." Hell, his problem with Lin Wood was that Lin Wood was telling Georgians not to vote during the Senate race scam in 2020 and Trump came out saying the opposite at the time. He told people the race was crooked, but they had to take the shot. Trump is not Galt, who walked away as a strategy. Trump never walks away from a fight. Not when he's in the arena. Remember this quote? Trump's exact quote about John McCain: That's Trump. Not that spin by a National Review anti-Trumper Lincoln-Project-ass-kissing toady. Michael

  35. TG, That's how establishment toadies roll. Bait and switch. Say one thing to calm the crowd. Then stick it to 'em with the opposite. If you pay attention to the news headlines, you will see this pattern often. For example, during the Arizona audit, how many times did we read that the County would comply with this or that and hand over everything required, only to say a day or two later they couldn't because of "reasons"? I learned this pattern in Brazil. If the headlines were all saying one thing, I knew a couple of days later the opposite would happen. Back then the big thing was inflation, which ended up at about 90% a month before the crash happened (the election of Collor, a young president who simply shut down the economy and took everybody's money--he got impeached, too). In fact, when I look around at Biden-world, things look awfully familiar. Michael
