More than 1,000 Israelis test positive for COVID​

PM Bennett: Vaccine ‘significantly less’ effective against the Delta variant​


At the moment, around 60% of the patients in serious conditions have been vaccinated. Moreover, according to Hebrew University researchers who advise the government, around 90% of newly infected people over the age of 50 are fully vaccinated.

Yeah, The Jerusalem Post. ALEX JONES: RIGHT AGAIN.

Oh well...watch the "PROOF" dogs are ( actually) smarter than vaccinated people vid...

Have a serious laugh, and enjoy your day!



eta:
All those victims know nurses now too, I bet.

'Great wheat sharks' making waves in Southwestern Ontario field
Anne Melady wants those driving by the property to get a laugh amid the pandemic doom and gloom

Call them great wheat sharks.

You can see their triangular fins peaking above a field of the golden grain on Hwy. 8 between Stratford and Goderich near the hamlet of Dublin.


As anyone who has seen the movie Jaws can tell you, the dorsal fin poking above the wheat, about 30 metres back from the road, is the telltale sign of a relentless predator.

The purpose of these wheat sharks — the creation of retired nurse and landowner Anne Melady, 75 — is to promote mirth. All Melady wants is for those driving by the property to get a laugh amid the pandemic doom and gloom.

“We need some fun,” said Melady, who got the idea from a field she saw last year near Erin sporting similar fins. “It was so fun to see somebody make a wheat field look a little different. It just made me smile,” she said.

Melady sharecrops the land with a local farmer, and once the decision was made to put in wheat, she went to work, building the fins out of plywood before spray-painting them black. A welder friend helped attach brackets to them, and they are fixed to the ground with half-inch electrical piping.

“When the wind blows they do move some,” Melady said, which adds to the illusion. The more realistic, Melady figures, the bigger the laugh.

She’s heard from several people who enjoy the sight gag. One woman told Melady her three-year-old “loves to drive down the highway and look for the sharks.” And her sister-in-law in Manitoba confirmed to Melady that images of the shark-infested field have been shared online at least that far away.

But contrary to what you might think, Melady’s wheat sharks aren’t part of some kind of marketing campaign from the Discovery Channel to promote Shark Week, its annual festival of shark-related programming, which runs until Saturday.

Besides, Melady has never seen a shark in person, although she did once get up close with a pod of orcas. “It’s a whale of a story,” she said.

Australia tossing British commentator Katie Hopkins after boasts about breaking quarantine rules

SYDNEY – Australia will deport British conservative commentator Katie Hopkins after she boasted on social media about appearing naked and maskless in hotel quarantine, in breach of the country’s strict rules, a government official said Monday.

Article content
“We will be getting her out of the country as soon as we can arrange that,” Australia’s minister of home affairs, Karen Andrews, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. She added that Hopkins’s visa had been canceled.


Her brazen efforts to flout Australia’s strict quarantine regime struck a raw nerve in a country where some 11 million residents are in lockdown to curb outbreaks of the delta variant. Tens of thousands of citizens are stranded abroad, because authorities have capped the number of international arrivals to relieve pressure on the hotel quarantine system, which requires anyone who enters the country to spend two weeks in a hotel at their own expense.

Hopkins had come to Australia for the reality television show “Big Brother VIP.” Australia is officially closed to everyone but citizens, residents and their immediate family. But exceptions are made for some foreigners, including sports teams and celebrities, deemed to be making an important economic contribution.

Brad Hazzard, the health minister of New South Wales state, which put in place a plan last year to allow film companies to bring celebrities in for big projects that would create jobs during the pandemic, said he was “shocked” by Hopkins’s behavior.

“To think that she could actually think that the measures we are taking to keep our community safe can be treated with such juvenile, imbecilic behavior is just mind-boggling,” Hazzard told reporters Monday, adding: “I hope she’s on the first plane back.”


In a statement Monday, Australia’s Seven Network and Endemol Shine Australia said that Hopkins “is not part of ‘Big Brother VIP,'” adding that they “strongly condemn her irresponsible and reckless comments in hotel quarantine.”

Article content
In a video posted to Instagram, Hopkins criticized the strict rules, saying in an expletive-ridden rant that she thought it was ridiculous that she could enter the country when others could not.

“Lockdown is and remains the greatest hoax in human history,” she said in the video.

Article content
Hopkins said that when food was dropped off at her Sydney hotel room where she was set to quarantine for 14 days, she was required to wait 30 seconds to open the door while wearing a face mask.

Instead, Hopkins – giggling – said she had been trying to surprise quarantine officials by sprinting to the door when she heard a knock, opening it “naked with no face mask.” The antics were “one game that I’m playing” with authorities at the hotel, she said. She added that she hoped the tricks would get an official to reprimand her so she could stand naked in front of him.

Andrews said that Hopkins’s actions were “despicable” and “appalling,” adding, “All visa holders must abide by the health directions issued by our health officials. We won’t tolerate those who don’t.”

The caption of her video said it contained “extreme humour,” adding, “I have never broken quarantine.”

A representative for Hopkins did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Early Monday local time, Hopkins reposted a video to her Instagram story criticizing the fear over the delta variant.

Article content
Australians stranded abroad, meanwhile, and other residents who are unable to leave the country for fear they won’t be able to return, aired their displeasure at Hopkins’s actions.

Rachel Oppen, an American living in Sydney with her Australian American husband and 11-year-old son, said it is “super, super frustrating that people like [Hopkins] are able to come through and yet we can’t go home, even though we are vaccinated.”

Oppen, a tech consultant who is originally from Ann Arbor, Mich., said she normally travels to the United States two or three times a year but hasn’t seen her family since January 2020 because of the travel restrictions.

“It’s a long time, especially for a child my son’s age, and with older parents it’s a challenge, too,” she said. “For me, there’s a constant anxiety level because I can’t go home and I don’t know when I’ll be able to go home. You don’t know who is going to be there when you get back.”

Article content
The decision to deport Hopkins comes as the worst coronavirus outbreak in almost a year led officials Saturday to tighten lockdown restrictions in Sydney, the country’s most populous city, shutting down all nonessential retail and pausing all construction work. The city’s 5 million residents are only allowed to leave their homes to exercise outdoors or to shop for groceries. Neighboring Victoria state went into shutdown last week as well after a group of interstate furniture movers sparked a string of cases.

The outbreaks in Australia are small by global standards; the largest, in Sydney, started with an airport limousine driver and has grown to a little more than 1,300 cases. Unlike many countries where the virus has long circulated in the community, Australia has sought to quash any outbreaks down to zero.

Hopkins has a history of inflammatory comments. In 2017, she tweeted that a “final solution” was needed after the Manchester bombing. She deleted the tweet and said her use of the Nazi term for its genocide of Jews was a “typo.”

LONDON — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was not prepared to impose lockdown restrictions to stop the spread of COVID-19 to save the elderly and denied the National Health Service would be overwhelmed, his former top adviser said in an interview aired on Monday.

Article content
In his first TV interview since leaving his job last year, excerpts of which were released on Monday, Dominic Cummings said Johnson did not want to impose a second lockdown in the autumn last year because “the people who are dying are essentially all over 80.”

Cummings also claimed that Johnson wanted to meet Queen Elizabeth, 95, despite signs that the virus was spreading in his office at the start of the pandemic and when the public had been told to avoid all unnecessary contact, particularly with the elderly.

The political adviser, who has accused the government of being responsible for thousands of avoidable COVID-19 deaths, shared a series of messages from October that are allegedly from Johnson to aides.

In one message, Cummings said Johnson joked that the elderly could “get COVID and live longer” because most people dying were past the average age of life expectancy.

Cummings alleges Johnson messaged him to say: “And I no longer buy all this NHS (National Health Service) overwhelmed stuff. Folks I think we may need to recalibrate.”

Reuters could not independently verify whether the messages were genuine.

A spokesperson for Johnson said the prime minister had taken “the necessary action to protect lives and livelihoods, guided by the best scientific advice.”


Cummings told the BBC that Johnson told officials that he should never have agreed to the first lockdown and that he had to convince him not to take the risk of meeting the queen.

“I said, what are you doing, and he said, I’m going to see the queen and I said, what on earth are you talking about, of course you can’t go and see the queen,” Cummings said he told Johnson. “And he said, he basically just hadn’t thought it through.”

Despite questioning Johnson’s fitness for his role as prime minister and castigating the government’s fight against COVID-19, Cummings’ criticism has yet to seriously puncture the British leader’s ratings in opinion polls. The full interview will be broadcast on Tuesday.

Israeli lab: Some existing drugs could stop COVID at almost 100%​

A Hebrew University of Jerusalem research team found 18 drugs that they felt could be effective in the treatment of patients who contract COVID-19.​

Scientists from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem say they have identified several drugs that could potentially help treat, if not “cure,” people who develop COVID-19.

Prof. Shy Arkin, a biochemist in the Alexander Silberman Institute of Life Science, told The Jerusalem Post that in lab tests in which cells infected with SARS-CoV-2 were placed together with the drugs for two days, “almost 100% of the cells lived despite being infected with the virus.”

In contrast, without the preexisting drug compounds, around 50% of the cells died after coming in contact with the virus.

Arkin and his team culled through a library of more than 2,800 approved-for-use compounds, identifying 18 drugs they felt could be effective. In unpublished work, the researchers were able to show that several of these compounds “exhibited remarkable potency against the whole virus in in vitro experiments.”

Two of them are Darapladib, used for the treatment of atherosclerosis, and Flumatinib, used for the treatment of certain blood cancers. Arkin said he was hesitant to share the names of any of the drugs, adding that he could not recommend them until they underwent proper clinical trials.



The team focused on drug repurposing to potentially expedite any future regulatory steps. Since the drugs are already being used for other indications, their toxicity and side effects, for example, are known and approved.

The way the drugs work is by inhibiting two targets in the virus: the E (envelope) protein and the 3a protein.

The E protein is the most conserved of all virus proteins. For example, while the spike proteins of SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV-1 (the 2003 virus) are only about 75% identical, their E proteins are roughly 95% alike. This means the drugs would likely remain effective even when the virus mutates, Arkin told the Post.

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines target the spike protein.

In previous studies, E and 3a proteins were shown to be essential for viral infectivity. Arkin’s team was among the first to study the E protein of the first SARS coronavirus in 2004.

As part of research that Arkin’s team has been conducting for more than two decades, they identified that the E protein is an ion channel, a type of protein family expressed by virtually all living cells that because of its structure has “served as excellent and frequent targets for pharmaceutical point interventions,” including for cystic fibrosis, epilepsy, arrhythmia, neurodegenerative diseases, hypertension, angina and more, the report said.

It is important that “a large arsenal” of drugs exist to fight SARS-CoV-2, Arkin said.

“We should never be in a situation where in our arsenal we only have one firearm,” he said. “If we only have one and we rely solely on it, and then there comes a time that it fails, we will be in a very precarious situation.”

Arkin believes his team is set for in vitro and in vivo studies, and he is looking for a pharmaceutical partner to help carry these trials through.

Citing the success of Gilead obtaining US Food and Drug Administration approval for Remdesivir in record time at the start of the pandemic, Arkin said he was optimistic that at least some of these compounds could be approved for use against COVID “very quickly with the right partner.”

But gee, then there would be no emergency, no emergency, no emergency approval...no emergency approval, no liability free experimental/emergency profits...


So Rand Pail is bringing up the words "Fauci" and "Prison" in the same "sentence", is he?

Investigation opened into giant Macron-Hitler billboard comparing Covid policy to Nazi regime​

The Toulon prosecutor's office has opened an investigation into a defamatory poster which conflates images of French President Emmanuel Macron and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, amid criticism of ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.

A billboard seen on the outskirts of Toulon and La Seyne-sur-Mer, displaying an image of French President Emmanuel Macron dressed in a Nazi uniform and sporting Adolf Hitler’s trademark toothbrush moustache, has caught the attention of the city’s prosecutor, according to local media reports.

A report in France Bleu on Tuesday morning stated that the Toulon prosecutor’s office had now opened an investigation into the defamatory posters displayed in the Var department.

The anti-vaxx movement in France paid for this billboard. They compare Emmanuel Macron to Adolf Hitler, the vaccination programme to Nazi Germany and his party to the Nazi Party. pic.twitter.com/Kz1WYBQB5y

Looks like tens of thousands or more people there. Just like the HUGE demonstrations in France where Macron has predictably gone full banker commie covid retard recently.
If there is anything to be learned from all of this covid virus bull shit hoax is that no one should never listen to their politicians or the media again. Those two basturds are all in cahoots with the globalists to try and help big pharma push their vaccines on the buffoons that are willing to take their experimental covid vaccines. Tens of thousands of people would still be alive today if they rejected taking all of those covid vaccines.

Most people are not being told by the globalist corporate big pharma owned MSM that these covid vaccines have already seriously injured and maimed many thousands of people and many thousands more have died from taking those covid vaccines. Why is the MSM still silent on this. I guess that we now know why.

If the people new as to just how harmful those vaccines are and what can happen to them when they take one of those vaccines they would probably be quite hesitant to want to take them. I for one am willing to take my chances with the covid virus rather than take any experimental vaccines. There may be a good chance that one of the covid vaccines will do me great harm or even kill me.

Besides, as I was told from the very beginning of this covid pandemic, or this covid planned plandemic, was that if one does not have a fever and does not have breathing problems than there is a good chance that one does not have covid. So far, I have not had any of those symptoms. Until I do, there will be no lining up for me to go get the jab. Taking the jab is for suckers and idiots. Just saying. 🥳

Those PCR tests have been shown to not be reliable at all. And besides, when the government wants to show a higher number of covid cases they just raise the number on the PCR testing bar. If they want to show lower cases of covid, than they would lower the number on the PCR testing bar. One day they can lower the count to as low as 20 cycles on the PCR test bar. The next day they can raise the PCR test bar to 40 cycles. It all depends on what kind of mood they are in.

If they want to make it look like the covid vaccines are working, they lower the bar. If the want to show that there are more victims of covid up goes the bar and will most likely blame it on the non vaccinated. These lying politicians and those so called health experts and officials have it all figured out as to how to play with the people's heads. So far, they have been doing a pretty great job of messing with the people's heads. Basturds they is. (n)

There are thousands of American firefighters and a fleet or aerial platforms that aren't allowed to cross the border. If it were truly a crisis they border would be wide open. Why aren't the northern US forests burning out of control? Joe Biden?

I'm prepared to wager that next week will miraculously see a huge reduction in fires and smoke Justin time for the August longweekend.

It's all too fucking convenient and in the end will be used as climate change propaganda.

Is there a possibility of a monkeypox outbreak in the United States?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention isn’t taking any chances as it monitors more than 200 people from 27 states for possible exposure to the virus after they came in contact with someone from Texas who contracted the disease in Nigeria this month.


Monkeypox is an infectious disease caused by the monkeypox virus and is mostly transmitted from animals to humans, according to the CDC. Symptoms may include fever, rash and swollen lymph nodes.

The disease occurs primarily in tropical rainforest areas of Central and West Africa. Monkeypox has an incubation period of three to 17 days.

According to the New York Post, the unnamed Texan had travelled from Lagos, Nigeria, to Dallas — with a stop in Atlanta, Ga., — between July 8-9, a week before they were diagnosed with the bug.


The CDC is monitoring those who have come in contact with the person, which included those who sat within two metres of them or have used the airplane’s bathroom during the flight.

According to the CDC report, monkeypox cases outside of West Africa are rare, with the last outbreak in the U.S. in 2003 when there were 47 confirmed and probable cases linked to a shipment of infected exotic animals.

The CDC noted the Texas case comes on the heels of the three confirmed cases in the U.K. in 2018 that were linked to a Nigerian worker.

It's a miracle! The fires stop at the border.

Compare the entire US&A to BC.

Now compare Washington to BC

12 fires in Washington with 4 being prescribed burns yet just a few km from the border into BC.... chaos and climate change gone wild.

I'm sick and tired of all the lies, subversion and propaganda dispensed by network media.

Israeli, UK data offer mixed signals on vaccine’s potency against Delta strain​

Local research claims Pfizer shot now only 41% effective against symptomatic COVID, while British stats have it at 88%

By NATHAN JEFFAY 22 July 2021, 11:51 pm

New data from Israel and the United Kingdom painted a confusing and contradictory picture on Thursday as to the effectiveness of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine in fighting off the Delta variant of the coronavirus.

New Health Ministry statistics indicated that, on average, the Pfizer shot — the vaccine given to nearly all Israelis — is now just 39% effective against infection, while being only 41% effective in preventing symptomatic COVID. Previously, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was well over 90% effective against infection.

Meanwhile, a new UK study published this week in The New England Journal of Medicine found the same vaccine to be 88% effective in preventing symptomatic COVID — more than twice the rate found in the Israeli data.....More

Fact Check: Joe Biden Spreads Misinformation About COVID-19 Vaccines at CNN Town Hall​


CLAIM: President Joe Biden claimed Wednesday: “You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.”

VERDICT: PARTLY FALSE. Vaccines greatly reduce the probability of COVID infections, but do not eliminate it.

Gee. and he was talkin the same ^%^&$* as sleepy always does too.
;)

..and even sadder is the fact that that is RELATIVE RISK not ABSOLUTE RISK - in other words in the real world your chances of a pure covid death are, after you subtract out all the BRAINDEAD FAKENEWS, MINISCULE.

$26 BILLION OPIOID ADDICTION LAWSUIT SETTLEMENT FROM J&J, BIG PHARMA​

July 22, 2021By Mount Sinai Wellness Center

Johnson & Johnson (J&J), McKesson, Amerisource Bergen Drug, and Cardinal Health have recently all agreed to a $26 billion settlement fund to resolve thousands of opioid addiction crisis lawsuits from around the country. In recent years, Big Pharma overall has been slammed with lawsuits that accuse numerous companies of knowingly fueling the country’s worsening fight with widespread opiate addiction by falsely reporting the addictiveness of their medications and by coercing doctors to prescribe opioids when unnecessary. During the pandemic, fatal opioid overdoses spiked by about 30%, which added fire to the arguments brought forth by a large group of State Attorneys General.

Well welll well, would YOU take The needle from these GENOCIDAL DOPE GANGSTERS? I know some ( scared of the dark) people who jumped right on them.

During the pandemic, another devastating health crisis was growing​

The Lead

Opioid overdose deaths rose 30% last year, making 2020 the year with the highest number of overdose deaths ever recorded in the US, according to the CDC. CNN's Elizabeth Cohen reports on this health crisis that continued to plague the US amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
