    It's like talking to a brick wall, Ellen. A brick wall of willful evasion, on his part.
    A familiar phrase comes to mind, here: "blank-out."

     


    Yes, it is like that - although the metaphor I think of is an ostrich with its head in the sand, because Peter so resolutely refuses even to look.

    I would drop it entirely with him if not for…an 11-year-old granddaughter whose parents might listen to Peter in deciding whether or not to give the child the shots.

    I hope she is spared.

    Damn it, there are the tears forming in my eyes again.  I am so upset about the OK for young children.  Teenagers was already awful, young children…

    Crime against humanity, like some are wanting to instigate Nuremberg-style trials contending. Atrocity.

    She just misses Jon?

    What is that supposed to mean?

    Whatever, I am not amused, and, no, I do not miss Jon.

    I did like Jon quite a bit prior to his becoming rather a fanatic.  By the time he was banned, I was glad to have him gone.

    Get the news or the alt news? Science or pseudoscience? What are DOCTORS telling you Ellen? What is wrong with you? I quote a real site with statistics about Covid deaths and the unvaccinated and you  . . .  well unfortunately, it’s not just you. Peter

    Peter,

    I read and understand medical material which you wouldn’t begin to understand.  (I started reading medical textbooks for fun when I was less than nine.)  I already understood from a description of how the mRNA "jabs" work that they're "playing with fire," so to speak.  As has been confirmed.

    You probably could understand some of the material Mark has linked to, however.  Have you even looked at any of it?

    The "real" stats you quote are grossly inflated, as I have explained on this thread. (Note re Tony's point about there being many unreported mild cases.  Agreed.  Nevertheless, the official case figures include many cases which are actually flu or just a cold or even nothing at all except a false-positive PCR, and the official death figures include many cases which likewise aren’t Covid at all or are simply "with Covid," not "from Covid.")

    The "real" study you cited is junk.

    I've told you that my doctor was surprised (at my annual exam) that I hadn’t gotten "vaxxed" and I informed him of things he didn’t know.  He'd been merely believing official medical sources which have been lying, lying, lying.

    He withdrew the recommendation that I "get the shot."

    Your doctor is either similarly misinformed or is going along with the herd despite knowing better.  Not knowing your doctor, I couldn’t say which.

    In any case, doing what a doctor tells you simply because "Doctor says so" is not rational.  One rationally does what a doctor says only if one has good reason to think that what the doctor says is sound advice.

    Doctors, even the best doctors, are not infallible, and many of them tend to be prone to herd dynamics fashion-following (observation from a lifetime of knowing doctors as family friends and acquaintances as well as in doctor-patient relationships).

    I very much hope that if a doctor recommends that you recommend a shot for your granddaughter that you say, NO!

    The 5-11 shots are going to outright kill or produce disability in some percentage of young children, as they have done in other age groups.

    And the long-term consequences are going to be horrendous.  A medical catastrophe.

    This looks like another article worth noting:

    Spontaneous Abortions and Policies on COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine Use During Pregnancy

    by Aleisha R. Brock1, Simon Thornley2

    Quote

    Abstract

    The use of mRNA vaccines in pregnancy is now generally considered safe for protection against COVID-19 in countries such as New Zealand, USA, and Australia. However, the influential CDC-sponsored article by Shimabukuro et al. (2021) used to support this idea, on closer inspection, provides little assurance, particularly for those exposed in early pregnancy. The study presents falsely reassuring statistics related to the risk of spontaneous abortion in early pregnancy, since the majority of women in the calculation were exposed to the mRNA product after the outcome period was defined (20 weeks’ gestation).


    In this article, we draw attention to these errors and recalculate the risk of this outcome based on the cohort that was exposed to the vaccine before 20 weeks’ gestation. Our re-analysis indicates a cumulative incidence of spontaneous abortion 7 to 8 times higher than the original authors’ results
    (p < 0.001) and the typical average for pregnancy loss during this time period. In light of these findings, key policy decisions have been made using unreliable and questionable data. We conclude that the claims made using these data on the safety of exposure of women in early pregnancy to mRNA-based vaccines to prevent COVID-19 are unwarranted and recommend that those policy decisions be revisited.

  5. A couple interesting tweets quoted on Gateway Pundit. The tweets might be taken down.  I copied the text, which I suppose will stay here even if the original source vanishes:

     

    Joe Hoft writes:

    "In an article at Twitchy about recent tweets that have not yet been censored and taken down at Twitter, John Hayward pinpoints why the Democrats hate the phrase ‘Let’s Go Brandon’."

     

    One reason Dems are so comically furious over "Let's Go Brandon" is they understand it's the kind of thing that triggers preference cascades - a moment when people look around and realize that huge numbers of their neighbors share what the ruling party claims is a fringe opinion.
     
     
    doczero_icon_x96.jpg
     
    The Left expends a huge amount of effort on making its adversaries feel marginalized. They mastered the dark art of making the majority FEEL like a fringe minority. The demoralization-destabilization-subversion strategy of the Left is designed to make normal people feel abnormal.

    To be fair ...

    Binswanger argues, in a string of sophistries, that the spike protein jab is very safe and very effective.

    Getting jabbed is good

     

    To be fair…, "Leave it to Harry to be a fool."

    The spike protein jab is neither safe nor effective.  Getting jabbed is at best misguided.  And Harry has the scientific educational background to have known better.

    [Mark is quoting from an article by “eugyppius,”  There Are No Arguments on the Other Side:]

    This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated, they explain, so we have to vaccinate everyone to reduce spread, but breakthrough infections don’t matter, since the primary purpose of vaccination is to limit severe disease, which is why we have to vaccinate children, who are not at risk of severe disease, in order to reduce spread.

    That's a gem of a summary of the Alice in Wonderland "logic."

    Isn't it odd that, in this formulation, Rand was a diversity generator in art and philosophy when she was on the fiction side, but ended up being a conformity enforcer in nonfiction? Especially in her personal life (oddly enough), but also in politics. And there followed a long series of conformity enforcers who emulated mostly that part of her. When I say "fundy" or "ortho" in terms of Objectivism, that is mostly what I mean.

    That's an enlightening way of putting the paradoxicalness of Rand, by which I was struck and puzzled from very early in my acquaintance with Rand's non-fiction and the conformity-enforcing quality of the Newsletter, then The Objectivist and of what I sensed (from a distance) of NBI dynamics.  On the one hand, individualism and creativity, on the other, stifling uniformity.

    I liked your post a lot, including the excellent synopsis you quoted about Bloom's categories.  I'll be marking the post for easy future reference.

    I think he would be an interesting form of Toohey for a villain in a novel.

    Toohey was psychologically astute.  Harry is so psychologically dense, I think he's never had power over people except a power of inclusion or exclusion on his list (if that's still going).  "Priest class," yes.  Guardian of that class. "The Stormtrooper of Objectivism," some called him in NY O'ist circles when Rand was still alive. He doesn’t have the ability to manipulate, just to police.

    (I'm using present tense, though it's been years since I've seen Harry in person, but he sounds, like I said, unchanged.)

    Understanding Covid-19 and Seasonal Influenza as Quasispecies Mutant Swarms Reveals the Quantum Origins and Cryptic Fates of Human Pandemics

     

    Here's an excerpt from the introductory section.  UNC is the University of North Carolina. 

    Quote

    SPOILER ALERT: SARS-CoV-2 is a circulating vaccine-derived-coronavirus (cVDCV) borne from work originally done at UNC, the only institution on earth that’s been attempting to design a live-attenuated vaccine for SARS, where they also pioneered engineering the sort of SARS-like chimeric coronaviruses that would be needed as templates for attenuation, and did their best to ignore or circumvent restrictions on gain-of-function research – obfuscation that’s still ongoing as they refuse to disclose genomic details relating to lab accidents that occurred during the above publicly-funded research. 

    Notorious researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology were associated with this controversial work on coronaviruses, and attempted to continue it into an experimental oral live-attenuated SARS-like vaccination program for the Chinese Military without accounting for the quantum nature of the math underlying quasispecies behavior – once they realized what was going on and deattenuation was already occurring out-of-control after the Wuhan Military Games, they reopened contact with Dr. Charles Lieber due to his work on virus-distinguishing nanowires, eventually leading to his arrest and the beginning of the largest and most coordinated cover-up in world history since both the pharmaceutical and defense entities involved in this research have a vested interest in attention being pulled away from serial passage and experimental vaccine work, as do the billionaire class that wants to use gain-of-function research for unrestricted tinkering into the human genome.

    Further quotes.

    === Start

    On a dazzling Friday morning in November 2016, Andrew was found dead on the floor of his living room. […]

    My son was 28 years old when he died. An autopsy was performed but no official cause of death was found. […]

    The time between late 2016 and 2019 is mostly lost to me. Grief, it turns out, doesn’t feel like sadness. It’s more like terror, being chased through oily blackness. My husband, younger son and I isolated. We drank. We drove, looking for Andrew. He’d loved mountains: South Dakota, Colorado, Oregon. We swore we felt him in the trees.

    We’d started to function again, slowly, by late ’19. In January ’20 we traveled to Bellevue, Washington, for a conference where John was speaking. I fell ill soon after with a fever and breathless cough I couldn’t shake for six weeks. This friend of ours—a corporate lawyer with business in China—raised an eyebrow and told us a pandemic was coming. All around there was tension, something uncontrolled and wicked in the air.

    John is an internet security expert with a background in mathematics. He’ll often talk about the “shape” of a problem. This is its outline, its gestalt. He envisions it like dots on a chart, or waves on a graph. I see holographic images—the shape of an ambitious refugee, white coats and flimflam men, glimmering under the figures we see today. In March, April, May, familiar shapes began to emerge.

    Suddenly there emerged a cadre of pandemic experts who recommended—then quickly required—extreme and unprecedented things.

    Excerpt pertaining to Bruno Bettelheim and his "refrigerator mother" theory of autism:

    === Start Quote

    The refrigerator-mother theory of autism became gospel, not just among psychiatrists but in the zeitgeist. It made sense and was easy to grasp. Better, it turned a mysterious and heartbreaking condition into a simple problem of who was to blame. People rallied behind the idea that cold mothers caused autism because it gave them comfort. Mothers whose children developed normally knew it was because they were “good.” Fathers and other relatives of autistic children were off the hook.

    Even desperate “bad” mothers embraced the idea, believing that if they could fix themselves their children would be cured. Finally, an answer: They needed to sign up for intense psychotherapy and send their autistic children to live with other families or in residential programs. Some mothers were advised to re-home their healthy children as well, lest their “refrigerator” qualities leak over and spoil another young mind. Many complied.

    Occasionally families would reject the diagnosis and their children would be taken by force. Reports were made, psychiatric teams mobilized. They showed up at the homes of autistic children, packed their bags and removed them, while guards held off the screaming, protesting mothers who’d been deemed unsuitable. Bettelheim called this process “parentectomy,” a sad but necessary practice that would help autistic kids be cured. Many were taken to the Orthogenic School he ran, where they stayed for up to a dozen years.

    It wasn’t until 1990—after Bettelheim’s death by suicide at 86—that residents and staff from the school began talking about his rages, name calling, constant lying, and abuse.

    === End Quote

    Bettelheim was much-respected when I was a psych major at Northwestern in the early 1960s.  I have at least one of his books in my collection of assigned or recommended works from those years.  (I can’t remember the title off-hand and don’t want to go searching just now.)

  14. I noted above this quote from the FDA panel's deliberations:

    The editorial started:

    Quote

    Covid-19 has created a crisis throughout the world. This crisis has produced a test of leadership. With no good options to combat a novel pathogen, countries were forced to make hard choices about how to respond. Here in the United States, our leaders have failed that test. They have taken a crisis and turned it into a tragedy.

    The magnitude of this failure is astonishing.

    It concluded:

    Quote

    Anyone else who recklessly squandered lives and money in this way would be suffering legal consequences. Our leaders have largely claimed immunity for their actions. But this election gives us the power to render judgment. Reasonable people will certainly disagree about the many political positions taken by candidates. But truth is neither liberal nor conservative. When it comes to the response to the largest public health crisis of our time, our current political leaders have demonstrated that they are dangerously incompetent. We should not abet them and enable the deaths of thousands more Americans by allowing them to keep their jobs.

    Better now. But a day and a half after getting the Moderna shot she was not so well. My grand daughter is eleven and I think she should wait a while for "the shot."

    I'm glad that your wife is better, and that you think that your granddaughter "should wait a while."  I recommend her waiting perpetually, i.e., never getting "the shot."  And I hope that your wife will have learned not to try her luck again if (probably when) future boosters are pushed by the CDC.

    I really, really, like Dr. Meryl Nass.  Here is her letter to the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee, before their decision about child vaccination:

    "Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee"

    Is that a standing FDA committee name or the ad hoc name of the particular committee convened to examine the issue of child "jabs" for Covid?

    I wonder because if it's ad hoc, then it looks like a fudge to avoid using precisely the term "vaccine" for the mRNA mechanism.
