SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The CDC’s announcement covers everything except the fundamental problem to which the director and the external reviewer are blind: industry subservience and epidemiologic incompetence.

The CDC Failed, So Spin It Off and Make It More Powerful?

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Don’t be fooled by any appearance of contrition on the part of the CDC. They still have a legal appeal in process that would put a mask back on your face when traveling. The new agency to which its pandemic responsibilities will be transferred will have a 1,000-person staff to start, people paid the big bucks to sit around coming up with new ways to whip up disease panic and start another crackdown.

Natural Immunity Forgotten

Mandatory Mis-Remembering on Natural Immunity

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

While the natural immunity versus vaccination debate has been controversial over the last year, what is not debatable is that midterm elections are coming this November. And with a majority of Americans unhappy with the President’s pandemic policies, perhaps the CDC is relying on “midterm science” to guide their new appreciation for natural immunity?

How Covid Policy Tore Israel Apart

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The rules of medical confidentiality between the patient and the entity treating them must be strengthened, and a person’s medical preferences and choices regarding vaccination, as well as any other treatment, should remain their private information.

Dr. Birx’s Fake Science Revealed in Her Own Words

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

In her “excruciating story” of the pandemic, The Silent Spread, Deborah Birx does not even try to make coherent scientific or public health policy arguments in favor of the Chinese-style totalitarian measures she advocated. Instead, she provides nonsensical, self-contradictory assertions – some downright false and others long disproven in the scientific literature.

The Dragnet in Lombardy: Patient Zero of Lockdowns

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

By way of one Health Minister Roberto Speranza, on whose order 50,000 Lombardy residents were placed under lockdown on February 21, 2020, the first lockdown in the modern western world. Within weeks, lockdown had spread to cities across Italy, until the entire nation was placed on lockdown on March 9. By April 2020, more than half the world’s population—some 3.9 billion people—had been placed under lockdown.

Besties: Twitter, Facebook, Google, CDC, NIH, WHO 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The relationship between Big Tech – and all aspiring reporters and enterprises – is very clearly complex, and elusive of ideological categorization. It is also corrupt, exploitative of the interests of the people, and at odds with the interest of Enlightenment values. How can freedom stand a chance when it is so viciously squeezed between the controlling interest groups, who are the powerful in society? They believe they are the lords and we are the peasants.

The Biden Administration Still Pushing Its Transportation Mask Mandate

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The plaintiffs in the case have now filed their response to the appeal. The decision is expected in weeks. It will likely uphold the previous decision, which amounts to a serious though not fatal blow to the unchecked power of the administrative state, which is arguably the single greatest threat to American liberty and constitutional government that we face.

The author, Peter Loftus, is a reporter for the Wall Street Journal and they published his essay about the book in their Review section on Saturday. What’s astonishing is that Loftus does not even realize the enormity of the story he just stumbled upon.
