    The fucking zoo is vaccinating its animals.

    The thing about zoos, appreciate them or revile them, the only thing of value they have (besides real estate and plumbing) is the animals on display (and more abstractly, the genetic line if the animals are rare, protected, nearing extinction or otherwise threatened). The animals indirectly pay the wages of the caretakers.**

    -- on a mostly-unrelated side issue, I should note that a massive animal rescue is going on next-door to us in the flooded prairie. Many thousands of cattle and other livestock are dead, but thousands more have been brought to safety and feed and water drops are ongoing across the temporary lake. 

    The USA is waiving its stringent COVID controls at the border to allow us down for essential supplies. We also don't have to show a PCR test when we return north.  The nearest crossing is at Sumas, Washington, but to get there presently requires a fifty mile detour through congested, one-lane-at-a-time roads being refashioned.  The ethics of emergencies ...

    From the story cited:

    Quote

    [Sherronna Bishop] said the agents would not tell her why they were searching her home. They did leave behind documents related to the search warrant, saying they entered her home because she was suspected of causing “intentional damage to a protected computer, wire fraud and conspiracy to cause damage to a protected computer.”

    I don’t know anything about this. They couldn’t explain any of this,” she said. “I will tell you why: they were at my home to intimidate me, to shut me up, because I was using my First Amendment rights to advocate for [Mesa County Clerk] Tina Peters on the issue of Dominion [voting machines] and the damage done in our election. And they’ll never be held accountable. Instead they will criminalize this woman who has stood up.”

    From another angle, a few more items to chew on:

    Quote

    The FBI on Tuesday raided the home of a Colorado election clerk and three others in an investigation into a voting system security breach.

    Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters, a Republican, was accused by state officials in August of helping to leak voting system passwords to a right-wing blog. Peters later appeared at MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell's conspiracy-laden "cyber-symposium," where the pillow magnate promised but failed to produce evidence of election-rigging. Peters later briefly went into hiding with Lindell's help amid FBI scrutiny.

    On Tuesday morning, the FBI and local prosecutors raided Peters' home.

    [...]

    "We executed four federally court-authorized operations today to gather evidence in connection with the investigation into the Mesa County Clerk and Recorder's Office," District Attorney Dan Rubinstein told Colorado Politics. "We did so with assistance from the DA's office from the 21st Judicial District, the Attorney General's Office and the FBI."

    Peters in an interview on Lindell's online streaming channel said the raid left her "terrified."

    The judge in Connecticut ruled on Monday that because Mr. Jones refused to turn over documents ordered by the courts, including financial records, he was liable by default.

    Does anyone really believe this will be the final result?

    The Connecticut case has been rolling along for quite some time. Readers can view the full, very long case docket here: http://civilinquiry.jud.ct.gov/CaseDetail/PublicCaseDetail.aspx?DocketNo=UWYCV186046437S

    If I have read the docket correctly, the ruling is here: http://civilinquiry.jud.ct.gov/DocumentInquiry/DocumentInquiry.aspx?DocumentNo=21734820

    I'm not intimate with this case, but I know there have been court assaults on Alex Jones for the Sandy Hook thing for ages. And I've heard that, in instances where outcomes do not go the way defendants like, appeals courts exist.

    What I gleaned from the court's ruling is that Jones and his lawyers have long been warned that not supplying what the court has ordered would result in a default judgement. Have a gander at the procedural history laid out in the ruling above.

    Alex Jones et al will be appealing this ruling, but I don't see a way he can win -- overturning Judge Bellis' ruling. See the penultimate page (16).

    On 11/15/2021 at 11:52 AM, Michael Stuart Kelly said:

    I suspect this thing is more about elections than about Sandy Hook. In fact, I lean toward this interpretation. It's called lawfare for political purposes.

    I don't know how this pertains to the Sandy Hook families pursuing their civil cases.  The orginal actions were brought almost 9 years ago.

    On 11/15/2021 at 11:52 AM, Michael Stuart Kelly said:

    I also suspect the court proceedings will go on for another 20 years. Alex has some top lawyers in the country beside him.

    He's been going through lawyers at a fine clip. His present team is not giving up (Reuters) :

    Quote

    Norm Pattis, who represents Infowars, said: "We remain confident that, in the end, the Sandy Hook families cannot prove either liability or damages. We think their lawyers know this; hence, the desperate effort to obtain a default.”

    A family spokesperson also acknowledged the road ahead:

    Quote

    "Mr. Jones was given every opportunity to comply but, when he chose instead to withhold evidence for more than two years, the Court was left with no choice but to rule as it did today," said Mattei, whose firm, Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, represents families of the Sandy Hook victims.

    "While the families are grateful for the court's ruling, they remain focused on uncovering the truth," he said.

    If I am reading the docket correctly the court dates for the next steps in the civil proceeding begin with jury selection next August (2022).  

    It's probably much too simplistic, but I think when you refuse to follow court ordered "discovery" procedures, you run the risk of a default judgement. 

    The trial beginning next year will be not fun for anyone, I expect.

  9. Regarding usage of the CDC Wonder system of querying the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System database, a couple of additions and corrections.

    On 11/10/2021 at 5:09 PM, william.scherk said:

    If you use a database utility or spreadsheet program, you can easily import the result data in CSV (comma delimited values) format.  For Excel, Open Office, etc.

    It's a bit more picky than my sketch. Saved files are usually exported as .txt files, but are "tab-delimited" rather than comma-delimited. I semi-successfully imported the text file into Calc, the Open Office spreadsheet app by Apache. Excel and Google Sheets are also picky -- but the best option for export might be to PDF.  

    By saved files, I mean that the CDC/Wonder can record all your criteria and give you a unique web page URL.  Once that is accomplished, you can share the report with a link. Eg, VAERS Saved WSS Wonder CDC report URL for OL: https://wonder.cdc.gov/controller/saved/D8/D249F113

    (as embedded by OL software: )

     

    Before you head off there to verify mine or/and build your own report, one other picky thing you have to do first: you must go to the bottom of the page and click the AGREE button. 

     

    FirstSavedData-firstAgree.png

     

    Once you agree, you head back up to the top of this unique page set, where you can click the first tab "Request Form" to view (and modify) the criteria:

     

    1-half-WonderReport.png

     

    Screengrabs of the dataset criteria:

     

    SecondStepSavedResultsWonder.png

     

    -- note you can give your own title to describe the dataset.  Here is a view of what the "Results" table looks like:

     

    savedResultsDatasetTable0.png

     

    Because the cells of data in the table of results are not uniform, the resulting spreadsheet will sometime be unwieldy as a table -- this appears to be unavoidable.  Here's another example screenshot of the results:

     

    savedResultsDatasetTable0b.png

     

    This particular individual row of results is almost unreadable, but you can click on the unique ID and get the same information in a more legible format:

    Ellen noted a Substack article by Steve Kirsch. In it he tells us of an analysis made from VAERS data:

     

    Quote

    [...] In a brand new VAERS data analysis performed by our friend Albert Benavides (aka WelcomeTheEagle88), we found hundreds of serious adverse events that were completely missed by the CDC that should have been mentioned in the informed consent document that are given to patients. And we found over 200 symptoms that occur at a higher relative rate than myocarditis (relative to all previous vaccines over the last 5 years). All together, there were over 4,000 VAERS adverse event codes that were elevated by these vaccines by a factor of 10 or more over baseline that the CDC should have warned people about.

    As of November 1, 2021, there have been more adverse events reported for the COVID vaccines than for all 70+ vaccines combined since they started tracking adverse events 30 years ago. That’s a stunning statistic, nobody can deny it, but nobody in the mainstream medical community (or mainstream media) seems to care much. It’s not even worth noting in passing. Wow.

    [...]

     

    Follows a list of key observations, followed by a how-to-verify the work of the Kirsch team. It isn't clear if Albert Benavides used CDC's Wonder or one or more of the query sites noted here:

     

    Quote

    [...]

    What we found in the VAERS analysis below can be verified by anyone because it is all publicly accessible. Albert spent only a few hours to produce the tables. So the CDC should have been able to do the same work Albert did.

    You can easily verify any entry yourself via manual queries to any VAERS interface (my favorite is MedAlerts, but others such as openvaers and the HHS site give the same results).

    Before we get to Albert’s analysis of the VAERS data, let’s do a little background.

     

     

    Then there comes a section on "how to properly interpret" the observations:

    At the bottom of that page ...

    It's only five bucks for a month's subsription, so it might be worth it to pay ...

    Which means without paying, we can't really figure out how the tables in Kirsh's article were derived, or at least not exactly.  What I am going to do is look up individual "symptom" entities from this table:

     

    c717d920-6d98-4418-82cc-894d7ff7c8bf_691

     

    Looking at a single symptom at a time should probably return entries in VAERS -- each one with a unique ID and thus able to be examined more closely.

    I am not at all sure I understand the Kirsch team's derivation of C19 count.

    What the data tells us

    Here are a few quick observations from the complete data set (see next section for downloading):

    I will start snooping VAERS for the reproductive issues first.

    In a TikTok video that has garnered hundreds of thousands of views, Dr. Carrie Madej outlined the ingredients for a bath she said will “detox the vaxx” for people who have given into Covid-19 vaccine mandates.

    The ingredients in the bath are mostly not harmful, although the supposed benefits attached to them are entirely fictional. Baking soda and epsom salts, she falsely claims, will provide a “radiation detox” to remove radiation Madej falsely believes is activated by the vaccine.  Bentonite clay will add a “major pull of poison,” she says, based on a mistaken idea in anti-vaccine communities that toxins can be removed from the body with certain therapies. 

    Then, she recommends adding in one cup of borax, a cleaning agent that’s been banned as a food additive by the Food and Drug Administration, to “take nanotechnologies out of you.”

    The first Capitol riot defendant to plead guilty to assaulting an officer has been sentenced to 41 months in prison

    CBS: 

    fairlamb.png
    WWW.CBSNEWS.COM

    Ex-MMA fighter Scott Fairlamb received the harshest sentence imposed yet for the attack.

    From the CBS article, below what was quoted by Peter:

    Quote

    In one video, prosecutors said, Fairlamb can be seen shoving and punching an officer on the West Front of the Capitol. CBS News and the press coalition were granted access to a few of the videos prosecutors used to build their case. 

    On Wednesday, Fairlamb addressed the court about his behavior on January 6, calling it "completely irresponsible, reckless behavior." 

    "I truly regret my actions that day," he said. 

    Prosecutors, who showed some profanity-laced videos of Fairlamb in court Wednesday during the attack, asked for 44 months in prison. 

    They described the attack on an officer and said the officer recounted it as the "scariest day of his career." 

    Fairlamb's attorney, Harley Breite, who also happens to be an MMA coaching client, defended his Fairlamb's character and claimed he had been ill-treated in the District of Columbia jail where Fairlamb is being held.  

    He said Fairlamb no longer holds the beliefs that inspired him to join the rioting. And he said that in the D.C. jail, the ex-MMA fighter faced threats of violence. Breite also told Lamberth that the jail made it difficult for him to convey information to his client.

     

    He also said that Fairlamb has agreed to be interviewed by the  January 6 House select committee, but so far, the jail has not allowed investigators in to interview him. 

    Outside of court, Breite continued to rail against D.C. jail. "Conditions in the DC jail are repugnant," he said. "They're embarrassing, and they're a disgrace to every penal system in this country." 

    Fairlamb has asked to serve his time in a federal prison in New Jersey, so that he can be close to his family.

    I don't know a single peson who has had the flu since March 2020.

    It's public information that the PCR test cannot tell the difference between flu and COVID.

    Revisiting this, after some persistent "snooping." 

    The issue of tests has come up in the household since the barriers to normal border traffic are coming down your end. One of my siblings travels internationally as a flight attendant, but we often take the land border crossing nearby for authentic Mexican eats and general day-tripping, bargain-milk-shopping and visiting our great aunt in Seattle (she's now 103).

    The newest 'relaxed' rules for entering the USA by air take effect today -- passengers are required to be fully-vaccinated and to have a recent negative COVID-19 test; combining these strictures with the slightly harsher and stupider newest Canada re-entry requirements means some advance planning.

    Basically, to get into the USA by land, we need to show that we are fully-vaccinated, but don't have to provide negative results from a COVID-19 test. But, of course, to get back into Canada, we have to prove we are fully-vaccinated and provide a negative COVID-19 test. 

    This mismatch of course is going to hurt the border communities to the south that rely to some part on Canadian visitors. I expect the testing requirement for Canadians returning north by land to be put aside sometime soon ...

    In any case, what tests do you or I need to get from here to there and back to the here? Firstly, no antigen tests. Secondly to twentiethly ...

    Types of pre-entry test

    • Rapid antigen tests aren't accepted.

    Accepted types of molecular tests

    • PCR - Polymerase chain reaction
    • Nucleic acid test (NAT) or Nucleic acid amplification test (NAATs)
    • Reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP)

    These tests use methods such as a nasopharyngeal (NP) swab, nose swab, or saliva sample.

    Other acceptable types of tests
    • RT-PCR – reverse transcription real time PCR
    • Quantitative PCR (qPCR)
    • Isothermal amplification
    • Droplet digital PCR or digital droplet PCR (ddPCR)

    A gnomic aside, a bit of a riddle. I'll bite, since it is likely about Pfizer's splashy news about Rosystockprice¹ antiviral pill ... compared against another earlier Rosyproduct pill panacea ...

    If you want to to see the heavy hand of Twitter, click the tweet to see it in situ, so to speak.  A related CovidMemo tweet was placed in a 'you can look, but you can't share or interact' penalty box, which is a weird weird way to carry out suppression/editing.

    ¹ from Forbes: Billions Wiped From Covid Pharma Heavyweights—Including Moderna, Regeneron, Merck—As Pfizer’s Antiviral Pill Triggers Selloff

    Win some billions, lose some billions, seems to me.

    [...]

    Merck’s initial announcement of promising trial data for molnupiravir precipitated a similar collapse in the pharmaceutical stock market, particularly among vaccine makers heavily invested in Covid-19 shots. The announcement wiped $22 billion off Moderna’s market value by 11 a.m. EDT the same morning. More Covid-centric vaccine makers (Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca are much larger and have more diverse pipelines) like BioNTech and Novavax (whose Covid-19 vaccine is not approved in the U.S.) also fell 13% and 18%, respectively, at that time, around $12 billion in combined market value lost.

    On Fox Business just now, at 1:09. Pfizer CEO, Covid pill a game changer, but you must be 18 or older.

    Merck has just had their Molnupiravir granted conditional authorization for use in the UK (story above in this thread); now Pfizer claims its drug Paxlovid has been found effective -- more effective than Molnupiravir:

    Pfizer’s is the second pill to show effectiveness against Covid-19, and it is the first purpose-built to attack the virus that causes the disease.

    From the NYT article:

    Pfizer announced on Friday that its pill to treat Covid-19 had been found in a key clinical trial to be highly effective at preventing severe illness among at-risk people who received the drug soon after they exhibited symptoms.

    The antiviral pill is the second of its kind to demonstrate efficacy against Covid. It appears to be more effective than a similar offering from Merck, which is awaiting federal authorization.

    Pfizer’s pill, which will be sold under the brand name Paxlovid, cut the risk of hospitalization or death by 89 percent when given within three days after the start of symptoms.

    Pfizer said an independent board of experts monitoring its clinical trial recommended that the study be stopped early because the drug’s benefit to patients had proved so convincing. The company said it planned to submit the data as soon as possible to the Food and Drug Administration to seek authorization for the pill to be used in the United States.
