Canada's Covid-19 Weekly Vaccine Harm/Injury Report- 9 Dead With Vaccine

 Have you all noticed that Canada's calls their weekly injury and harm report a "vaccine safety" report? It's classic "Double Speak" language used to deceive usually through concealment or misrepresentation of truth.  

If there were no injuries, serious, less serious and deaths, maybe it could be called a safety report but that's not the case? Perhaps we would be better served by calling this weekly report the  Covid-19 Vaccine Report or Covid-19 Vaccine Update? Instead the word safety has been included to create a specific idea, immediately, in the mind of the readers.  I can't change the link in my sidebar because the title is based on the url.

I'll link previous reports at the bottom of this latest round of information then you can understand where the death count is coming from. (Also pay attention to the fact that the official site has dropped "safety" from their headline- that's a significant change. In my opinion. 

Reported side effects following COVID-19 vaccination in Canada

https://health-infobase.canada.ca/covid-19/vaccine-safety/

What you need to know up to and including February 26, 2021 (not using summary data)

First I've calculated how many vaccines were given since the last update:

-The latest report dated February 19/21:  1,402,139 doses were administered
-The report below dated  February 26/21: 1,778, 405 doses administered
Informs us that this weeks stats are dealing with 376,2666 vaccines administered.

376,266 administered vaccines (since last report)  have resulted in:

“A total of nine reports identified deaths that occurred after the administration of a vaccine. Following medical case review, it has been determined that seven of these deaths are not linked to a COVID-19 vaccine and the other two are still under investigation.”
Yes, that’s 9 deaths with vaccine this week. The running total for deaths since tracking has begun is 39 dead with vaccine (minimally)

* 356- New adverse event following immunization reports since last update

(329 new non-serious and 27 new serious)

This week of data has 27 serious reactions. Still largely anaphylaxis. And an additional 329 non- serious reactions. Resulting from an additional weekly count of  376,266 vaccines administered. The rates of anaphylaxis is still exponentially higher then the usual 1 per 1,000,000. Your looking at 81 instance of anaphylaxis per million. That more then 80x higher.


* 1,591- Total adverse event following immunization reports

(0.089% of all doses administered)

*1,397 Total adverse event following immunization reports that were non-serious

(0.079% of all doses administered)

*194 Total adverse event following immunization reports that were serious

(0.011% of all doses administered)

1,778,405- Total doses administered  

 All prior reports from Canada's Vaccine Injury and Harm Updates:

And additional report pertaining to BC's recent Covid-19 Harm and Injury Report

Dated Feb.23/21 Nearly 300 reports of 'adverse events' following COVID-19 vaccinations in B.C.

B.C. health officials say there have been 292 reports of “adverse events” following COVID-19 vaccinations. 

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced the numbers at her coronavirus briefing Tuesday, adding about 19 were anaphylaxis or allergic reactions that were treated in the clinics or in the places where the immunization was provided.

“That is something that we have seen across the world with COVID vaccines and with all vaccines and we are prepared in our immunization clinics to make sure that we can handle these," Henry said. "We have about 10 in 100,000 doses that have led to these types of reactions."

Exponentially higher rates of anaphylaxis 

From earlier today- Deaths and injury already rolling in with Astra Zeneca

Austria Suspends Astra Zeneca Covid-19 "Vaccine" batch After Death and Serious Injury

 Reuters

Austrian authorities have suspended inoculations with a batch of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine as a precaution while investigating the death of one person and the illness of another after the shots, a health agency said on Sunday.

One 49-year-old woman died as a result of severe coagulation disorders, while a 35-year-old woman developed a pulmonary embolism and is recovering, it said. A pulmonary embolism is an acute lung disease caused by a dislodged blood clot.

“Currently there is no evidence of a causal relationship with the vaccination,” BASG said.

Swiss newspaper Niederoesterreichische Nachrichten as well as broadcaster ORF and the APA news agency reported that the women were both nurses who worked at the Zwettl clinic.

No evidence of a causal relationship with the vaccination? Rubbish.

Reread:

 He added: “Having it happen after a vaccine is well-known and has been seen with many other vaccines. Why it happens, we don’t know.

The clinical trials before authorization employed 23,000 people. An extremely small, likely never entirely ended alleged trial. And one that was designed to succeed so the 'vaccine' can generate massive profits for it's maker

It noted the vaccine had been approved by the European Medicines Agency and the World Health Organization based on a global clinical program involving 23,000 participants.

During the trials:

Burning Masks of Submission and Servitude- These Kids are Alright!

A cleansing fire destroys the masks of servitude. 

Newsweek

Saturday's "#FreeIdaho" mask burning event comes after Republican lawmakers in the state's House of Representatives narrowly passed legislation that would make any future mask mandates illegal. Adults at the rally in Boise could be heard instructing kids how to toss hundreds of masks into a trash can fire. "Destroy them!" one enthusiastic adult could be heard yelling as smiling children burned the masks inside the flaming trash can. "Not too fast, kids, be careful, watch the fire."
Link- Youtube, view it before it's gone

The issue of statewide mask mandates angered many GOP lawmakers across the country, but Idaho legislators were so incensed by the idea that they voted last month to prevent any level of government from taking such action again. Multiple cheering adults could be seen helping kids grab the masks in order to toss them into the fire. American flags were waved by several older attendees, including at least two in wheelchairs. 
This is not the first "anti-masker" rally in the state. Last August, a mask-burning barbecue event was held near the Panhandle Health District building in Hayden. "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety," read a sign held up by one protester, a quote from Benjamin Franklin that many historians say is frequently taken out of context. On February 22, the North Dakota House of Representatives passed a bill by two votes to make any future attempts at a statewide mask mandate illegal—no matter what health crisis may occur. "Our state is not a prison camp," said GOP Representative Jeff Hoverson.

Nearly 354K surgeries, procedures, consultations postponed due to COVID-19, report says

CTV

Data showed that 205,549 postponements were reported by nine provinces between March and May or June. The Ontario government indicated it had “no records,” so the report used an estimate put out by the CMAJ of 184,364 surgeries postponed in the province as a result of COVID-19 between mid-March and mid-June, 2020. The report did not have data for the territories.

A breakdown comparison of the figures is difficult since the information released, which is posted on SecondStreet.org, varied from province to province. Most data appeared to be specifically for surgeries, though some also included imaging exams, for example. Some provinces gave detailed reports including what types of surgeries were delayed, while others only shared overall estimated figures. Since the backlog began, a number of provinces have been working to move forward on procedures.

In B.C. for example, non-urgent, scheduled surgeries that were completed fell a dramatic 45 per cent, with dental, hip and knee replacements the most common non-urgent procedures that were most impacted during this period, the province told SecondStreet.org. Despite the early backlog, B.C.’s government announced in January that nearly all surgeries postponed during the province’s first wave had been completed.

Manitoba, which reported 8,391 procedures that were deferred during that period, announced at the start of this year that it would ramp up surgical capacity to address the issue.

Meanwhile, Ontario Health replied to SecondStreet.org’s request that a “search was conducted in Ontario Health on behalf of the Ministry’s Hospitals and Capital Division and no records were located in response to this request.” It explained that an accurate picture of surgical postponements due to COVID-19 was difficult for a number of reasons and that the province’s wait-time system only captures data of surgeries that have occurred. Last fall, the Ontario government announced a $741 million investment to help build more capacity within the province’s health-care system and clear the waiting list.

The Canadian Medical Association has previously said that it would take more than $1.3 billion to clear the health-care backlog caused by the first wave.

“There are no doubts that the impact of the pandemic will be felt for years to come. But for many Canadians, it could become a serious quality of life issue as they wait for their procedures,” CMA President Dr. Ann Collins said in a statement in October.

 SecondStreet is advocating for private, for profit clinics to pick up the slack. I'm not interested in their perspective on that. My only interest lies in the number of people who had their procedures unnecessarily postponed. Including a close member of my own family, until it became "urgent".

Canada "Authorizes" Use of Experimental Johnson and Johnson Covid Vaccine

 Following suit with the US. Would not have expected otherwise.

Video, if you can stomach it?

As I'd mentioned earlier Johnson and Johnson is not a company that should be trusted.

Research Suggests Some Pacific Islands Are Getting Larger

Contradicting the global warming death cults unsubstantiated claims.

Oh and the coral is alright too

Link

Researchers have discovered that hundreds of islands appear to be growing in the Pacific Ocean, despite the threat (claim) of rising sea levels.

Rising sea levels should tell us islands will shrink, but, that's incorrect

Scientists from the University of Auckland found that some islands have grown as much as 8% in size over the last 70 years. They used satellite images and data gathered on site to discover the changes.

He said coral reef sediment is responsible for the island growth: "Everyone's seen pictures of lush coral reefs, and those corals lay down a skeleton...and that skeleton is able to be broken down by waves and different fish that will chew up the coral and poop out sand - and that's the foundation for forming an island."

Aerial images show how much the shoreline of the island of Jeh has changed over the decades. (L) Image taken in 1943, (R) Image taken in 2015

It's 2021- Smart money says the island has continued to get larger 

Aerial images gathered by satellites since World War Two show how much of the shoreline of one such island, Jeh, has evolved. It shows clearly how the land mass has changed in that time, and where areas that were once reef are now land that you can stand on.

To be standing somewhere that 70 years ago was a reef - and is now an island - is pretty mind-blowing.

Dr Murray Ford, University of Auckland

Obesity , Overweight and Non Communicable Diseases As Risk Factors for Worse Outcomes In the Covid Infected

 Think Terrain Theory-

 Germs seek their natural habitat – diseased tissue – rather than being the cause of diseased tissue.” - Antoine Béchamp

 Oddly enough, I'd run across a news report covering the topic of obesity and Covid deaths at the Mirror- but when you click the link to read it...... It's GONE. 

I am noting that the msm self censors itself to the benefit of the agenda.

UK’s huge Covid-19 death toll linked to its high obesity rates, new study finds

In other news, a landmark global study has found the UK’s huge Covid-19 death toll is linked to its high obesity rates.

The World Obesity Federation findings show that countries with the most pandemic deaths have corresponding high obesity rates.

The World Health Organisation says the findings must be “a wake up call to governments” to tackle obesity which researchers blame for hundreds of thousands of extra deaths.

Click here to read more.

I went to the original source, of course: 

World Obesity.org

The WHO has highlighted NCDs (non communicable diseases) as a risk factor for becoming seriously ill with COVID-19 [1]. Today, the emerging evidence based on experience from other viral infections and new studies suggest that overweight and obesity seem to be risk factors for worse outcomes in those who are infected by COVID-19. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses overwhelmingly show that obesity is associated both with a higher risk for intensive care unit (ICU) admission and poorer outcomes for COVID-19 [2-4]. In the UK, a report flags that out of 10,465 patients critically ill with confirmed COVID-19, 73.7% were living with overweight or obesity [5]. Meanwhile, a report from Italy suggests 99% of deaths have been in patients with pre-existing conditions, including those which are commonly seen in people with obesity such as hypertension, cancer, diabetes and heart diseases. [6] Overweight and obesity also seem to be risk factors for worse outcomes in younger populations (<60 years old), with patients with a body mass index (BMI) between 30 and 34 being twice as likely to be admitted to ICU compared to individuals with a BMI under 30 [7].
Lockdowns, of course, exacerbating this already huge problem- For all the lock down pushers. 

Long term readers are well aware that lockdowns were never advocated here due to the enormous and obvious harms that would be the inevitable result.

COVID-19 & Obesity

A number of these also represent underlying root causes of obesity and thus risk exacerbating the risk of obesity. The first phase of the pandemic showed: 

  • Strained food systems and supply chains due to concerns of food shortages, as well as an increased reliance on processed, long-life foods and a reduction in fresh fruit and vegetables and unprocessed meat. 
  • Changes in eating behaviours due to lockdowns, especially for children. A survey conducted in Verona, Italy revealed that 44.5% of respondents increased consumption of sweets, and 44% of respondents mentioned weight gain due to higher calorie intake related and lower levels of physical activity [9]. The survey revealed a significant increase in the consumption of foods high in fat, sugar and salt (HFSS) and an increase in sedentary behaviours, with children spending an additional five hours per day in front of a computer, phone or TV screen. 
  • Food insecurity amongst the most vulnerable who have reduced access to shops and may have reduced access to normal food assistance programmes e.g. due to school closures. Access to a healthy and sustainable diet is a direct consequence of the “conditions and environment in which one lives.” [10] Today, unhealthy diets are the leading underlying cause of death. Nutritional disparities are driven by socioeconomic, educational and environmental factors. Among all five New York’s boroughs, the Bronx – a borough with high rates of obesity due to poverty and food insecurity – reports the highest hospitalisations and death rates from COVID-19 (Figure 1).
COVID-19 & Obesity
  • Reduced opportunities for people to be physically active as movement is restricted. A study using data from a UK-wide online survey highlighted that out of 5,800 adults aged 20 and over, a quarter of them adopted lower intensity physical activity, and included a greater proportion of adults with underlying health conditions [11].
  • An impact on mental health, due the seriousness of the emerging situation and challenges faced from isolation, reduced physical activity, social engagement and employment changes.
  • Rise in the exposure to opportunistic marketing and distribution of unhealthy commodities and HFSS products. Evidence suggests that the marketing of HFSS products is directly linked to an increase in overweight and obesity in children. However, today 70% of countries still fail to have policies in place to restrict food marketing to children. Furthermore, a report in Brazil shed light on industries’ opportunistic behaviour on the basis of social and philanthropic responsibility [12]. This included the distribution of products such as chocolate milk, cookies, processed meats and so on to health professionals and other essential workers.
  • Impacts on health systems and exacerbated challenges for treatment access for people living with obesity, including potential reductions in elective surgical procedures (e.g. bariatric surgery), and modifications to or curtailment of multidisciplinary team management, group weight loss programs and other forms of ambulatory care.

The lockdowns were intended to exacerbate this entire situation. They've gone on interminably and it's killing us.

Yet Another, Authorized for Emergency Use, Experimental Vaccine. Johnson & Johnson.

 Johnson & Johnson's authorization brings the total to 3 experimental vaccines being injected into the arms of the unsuspecting. (US)  Before we all read about this latest emergency use authorization, refresh your memory or enlighten yourself by reading the report from October 13/20: Johnson and Johnson Halts Late Stage Covid Vaccine Trial After “Mystery Illness”

"Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of infectious diseases at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, said by email that “Everybody is on the alert because of what happened with AstraZeneca,” adding that it could take a week to gather information.

“It would have to be a serious adverse event. If it was something like prostate cancer, uncontrolled diabetes or a heart attack - they wouldn’t stop it for any of those reasons. This is likely to be a neurological event,” he said"

 Bearing in mind that Johnson and Johnson is not a company you should put any faith in.

From J&J - one more acronym for the ongoing list: SAE (serious adverse event).

They're not detailing the problem because they need to protect the participant's privacy.

Their major words of comfort are to their investors. They make it clear it's only a "study pause", not a "regulatory" order forced on them. So carry on; no big deal.

 True believers need not read the information below. For anyone else who is sane and sentient... check out this latest abuse of humanity

Anthony Fauci has been championing this one for a while: NIH
"Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to the Janssen Pharmaceuticals Companies of Johnson & Johnson for its single-shot COVID-19 vaccine, called Ad.26.COV2S or JNJ-78436725. The Janssen vaccine is a recombinant vector vaccine that uses a human adenovirus to express the spike protein found on the surface of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. Adenoviruses are a group of viruses that cause infections in the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts; the adenovirus vector used in the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine has been modified so it no longer can replicate in humans and cause illness. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, supported late-stage clinical testing of the Janssen vaccine. It is the third COVID-19 vaccine in the United States to be granted an EUA by FDA. NIH Director Francis S. Collins, M.D. Ph.D., NIAID Director Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., and BARDA Director Gary Disbrow, Ph.D., released the following statements:

“This week marked a devastating milestone of 500,000 deaths from COVID-19 here in the United States. The loss attributed to the disease is almost unfathomable. To have a third vaccine that meets the expectations of an EUA for safety and effectiveness at preventing severe disease and death from COVID-19 brings us one step closer to protecting the American public, staying ahead of concerning viral variants, and finding our way out of the pandemic. I would like to thank the clinical staff who conducted the clinical trials of the vaccine as well as the thousands of study participants who helped us find the scientific answers necessary to reach this important day.” – NIH Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D.

“The Janssen COVID-19 vaccine is a very welcome addition to the arsenal of COVID-19 vaccines and other prevention strategies. When tested among 45,000 volunteers, the single-injection vaccine proved 77 percent effective in preventing severe/critical COVID-19 occurring at least 14 days after vaccination and 85 percent effective in preventing severe/critical COVID-19 occurring at least 28 days after vaccination. The vaccine was approximately 67 percent effective in preventing moderate-to-severe/critical COVID-19 disease occurring at least 14 days after vaccination and 66 percent effective in preventing moderate-to-severe/critical COVID-19 disease occurring at least 28 days after vaccination. Importantly, the vaccine was 100 percent effective in protecting against death from the disease everywhere it was tested. In addition to meeting the expectations of safety and effectiveness to support emergency use authorization, the Janssen vaccine has the advantage of requiring only a single injection and can be easily transported and stored without special refrigeration requirements. To get control of the COVID-19 pandemic, stay ahead of worrisome viral mutations, and protect the American public, we must vaccinate as many Americans as we can as quickly as possible. The Janssen vaccine provides yet another option to help achieve those goals.” – NIAID Director Anthony S. Fauci, M.D.           

The FDA’s emergency use authorization of the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine is exciting news on many fronts. A single dose vaccine stored at refrigerated temperatures and that prevents hospitalizations and deaths from COVID has the potential to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the U.S. and globally. Janssen and BARDA have a history of working together, developing treatments and vaccines for influenza and Ebola. To manufacture their COVID-19 vaccine in the United States, Janssen is working with resources we established after the 2009 influenza pandemic: our Centers for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing and our fill-finish manufacturing network. With the development of this vaccine, we are seeing the results of years of work on platform technologies and public-private partnerships coming to fruition.” – BARDA Director Gary Disbrow, Ph.D.

Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., is Director of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., is Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

Armenia: The Push to Toss Pashinyan is still active

From earlier today!

  1. 10 Dead With Vaccine in Canada- Adverse Reactions Continue Their Higher then Norm Pattern

  2. Israel ESTIMATES Ship Explosion in Gulf of Oman was Iranian Attack- False Flag/False Crisis

Pashinyan is looking powerless right now

Unless he’s got some cards still left to play? We shall see. The opposition doesn’t look to forceful either. Unless the military gets active? Pashinyan is trying to prevent this uniting of forces.

Pashinyan wanted to sack the leadership of the military. The President refused to take the necessary actions..

Link

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian President Armen Sarkissian has sent the proposal to sack the chief of Army General Staff, Colonel-General Onik Gasparyan back to Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, his office said Saturday, February 27.

Pashinyan is going to re submit the proposal
"The President decided to send back to the Prime Minister a draft decree on dismissal of the chief of the General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces. This step does not contribute to solving the current situation. I am resending to the President the request to dismiss the chief of the General Staff, expecting it to be signed in accordance with the established procedure," he noted.
The media rumour mill about the Iskander missile failures was, in my opinion, disinfo.
Enabling western media to blame Russia for this attempted coup- I simply don’t see this as credible.
 

 The so called civilian opposition, along side the military, is demanding Pashinyan step down.

JamestownJamestownPt2

There doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of popular support. Perhaps Armenians are looking to have some quiet time to contemplate their future? I don’t know?

“Overall, this is a power struggle between two worn-out camps with declining popular support. The former governing parties and Pashinian‘s government equally failed to deliver coherent strategies for developing the country. Pashinian and his team then marched into the 44-day Second Karabakh War against Azerbaijan (see EDM, November 25, 2020), pulling its military along to disaster. The Army had enjoyed hallowed status in Armenia under the previous regime (1998–2018), but little appears to remain of that status now.”
 Though there may be NO real desire for change within Armenia- There is plenty from outside of Armenia- The outside interests who have strong desire for change have been previously named. They are, again,as follows: The US. The EU. France, especially doing the bidding of another interested party- Israel. The PKK. Very influential in the EU and Israel (undoubtedly they have their lobbyists in the US) 

  A big question, perhaps someone who reads here can answer this. How integrated is the Armenian army with NATO?  Armenia has been looking towards NATO for some time now. How much progress had they made towards integration?  Check the news coverage over the past several years US Generals Visiting Armenia, US Military Instructors Training Armenian Recruits, Armenian Troops Participating in NATO Drills. US Praises US/Armenian Military Cooperation. Etc., Etc., It seems there has been a fair amount of intermingling between the US and Armenia. Over and extended period of time.


* Will Biden Save Pashinian?   Why Should We Assume Biden Wants Pashinian Saved? 

It looks to me as if the Biden administration wants him out!

 
Crucially:

Turkey’s preference is to promote peace, cooperation and economic integration in the South Caucasus. Hence the proposed establishment of a six-party mechanism.

Stability in the Caucasus, the Caspian and Central Asia would facilitate the transportation of energy and trade – which serve Turkey’s interests. The creation of a land corridor between Turkey and the Turkic republics via Nakhchivan, too, is good news for Ankara.

Peace between Azerbaijan and Armenia, normalization between Turkey and Armenia, and Armenia’s reintegration to address its economic problems are key to stability in the Caucasus.

The rise to power of coup plotters, who will launch a new war against Azerbaijan, or Armenia’s deterioration into a failed state due to Russian-American competition, would create many problems, including irregular migration.

Who would want/benefit from a failed state in Armenia?

It would seem that the coup attempt in Armenia will test the Biden administration’s commitment to containing Russia and defending democracies.

 The Biden adminstration wants to contain Russia, but, any claim of defending democracies should only be seen as a ruse. Right now I’m seeing the Biden administration preferring to push Pashinian out- in the guise of saving democracy.  A deadly game is afoot.

10 Dead With Vaccine in Canada- Adverse Reactions Continue Their Higher then Norm Pattern

 I've been tracking this for a bit now... Of course many of the figures are estimates and there is a lag in data. Estimated or actual. Or both.

Background: 

Covid-19 Vaccine Data 

Feb 19/21 (always a week behind) - 10 Dead with Vaccine

As of the report, dated February 12/21:  1, 221, 539 were administered

The latest report dated February 19/21:  1,402,139 doses were administered


So we are looking at the stats for an additional 180,600 mRNA gene therapies masquerading as vaccines
           
 From those additional 180,600 injections, 278 adverse events have occurred. 27 of them serious.
The serious still being, most often, anaphylaxis. The rate of anaphylaxis is exponentially higher then usual.



Usually one would expect 1 incident of anaphylaxis per million.  As you can read there have been 27 in less then 200,000.  We’d be looking at more then 135 incidents per million.

This week it’s reported there have been ten deaths:

A total of ten reports identified deaths that occurred after the administration of a vaccine. Following medical case review, it has been determined that seven of these deaths are not linked to a COVID-19 vaccine and the other three are still under investigation.

Last week there were eight reported. So we’ve got two additional deaths in one week. With three of them being under investigation- Those will be swept under the rug, that I’m sure of.
Still it is a given considering  the side effects of this vaccine, such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea which would be extremely hard on the elderly and could lead quite quickly to their death. 

Which is death by vaccine, any way you want to look at it!

  • 278 - New adverse event following immunization reports since last update
  • 251 new non-serious and 27 new serious
  • 1,235 Total adverse event following immunization reports
  • (0.088% of all doses administered)
  • 1,068 Total adverse event following immunization reports were non-serious
  • (0.076% of all doses administered)
  • 167 Total adverse event following immunization reports were serious
  • (0.012% of all doses administered)
  • 1,402,139 Total doses administered

Israel ESTIMATES Ship Explosion in Gulf of Oman was Iranian Attack- False Flag/False Crisis

 Wow, that is some serious weasel wording. "Estimates" 

What does that word actually mean?

Estimate defined: estimate implies a judgment, considered or casual, that precedes or takes the place of actual measuring or counting or testing out.

We now know that a judgement has been made without any actual investigation- The disinfo potential is huge. 

Link


 

A ship owned by an Israeli firm, the MV HELIOS RAY, was (estimated)  hit by an explosion in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday, the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) and a maritime security firm said on Friday. The current assessment in Israel is that the explosion was a targeted attempt against an Israeli-owned ship by Iran.

However, the cause of the explosion remains unclear.

"Investigations are ongoing. Vessel and crew are safe," the UKMTO's advisory notice said, advising vessels in the area to exercise caution.

The incident occurred at 2040 GMT, it said, but gave no details about a possible cause.

Maritime security firm Dryad Global said the MV HELIOS RAY was a vehicle carrier owned by Helios Ray Ltd, an Israeli firm registered in the Isle of Man. The ship was en route to Singapore from Dammam in Saudi Arabia.

A spokesman for Israel's Transportation Ministry said it had no information about an Israeli vessel having been struck in the Gulf.

A company with the name Helios Ray Ltd is incorporated in the Isle of Man. The ship was managed by Stamco Ship Management, Refinitiv ship tracking data showed. Stamco Ship Management declined to comment when contacted by phone by Reuters.

"Whilst details regarding the incident remain unclear it remains a realistic possibility that the event was the result of asymmetric activity by Iranian military," Dryad said in a report on the incident.

Refinitiv data shows the ship has set Dubai as its current destination.

The U.S. Navy's Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet said it was aware of the incident and monitoring the situation.

Dr Fausti Admits Vaccine Is A Failure For Transmission Reduction- Told Ya So!

 Hate to say you were all told this FACT, repeatedly. But you were.. This vaccine was never designed or proven to reduce transmission. Never. Ever. 

 Those media talking heads that have been pushing this, alt and msm, have been intentionally misleading or so inculcated with fear and disinfo that they took leave of the senses. Whichever? 

 This Meaghan McCain person (who ever she is) seems more bothered by the fact that Dr Fausti admitted to the failure of this vaccine. She seems bothered by his message more then the reality of the vaccine FAIL- Save for it being a mass experiment which is a win for the the pharmaceutical profiteers including, but certainly not limited, to Bill Gates.

Oh and she, Meaghan McCain, such a virtue signaling individual- can't trust that type!

Below the video I've relinked multiple previous reports that have discussed the failure to stop transmission issue with this so called vaccine. (mRNA therapy)  Long known. Check the dates on the posted information. Failure to stop transmission was known before the, ahem, vaccine was given EUA (emergency use authorization) and NOT approved.

 Link

It isn’t that Fausti is bad at his job. He's, in fact, been very good at misleading the herd.

He simply can’t keep on lying now that the vaccine is being rolled out- The Truth was inevitably going to bubble up to the surface. The vaccine doesn’t impede transmission. It never was demonstrated to do so.  There was NO SCIENCE, only spin, behind any claims of this vaccine doing much of anything beneficial. Unless one considers  causing harm and death by injection beneficial?  Those facts are being well obfuscated by the msm and some alt media darlings. Even that can only stand for so long, before it to will be bathed in the light.

Face it the masses have been played as fools. And they allowed themselves to be. By being lazy and not doing their own due diligence.

  1.  So you got the much ballyhooed Covid "vaccine"... And then you contracted Covid! Now What? 
  2.  Vaccinated Nurse Gets Covid "Positive Test Doesn't Necessarily Mean Nurse Has Contracted Illness" Oh, really?

In order for this experiment on humanity to be conducted the bar for this vaccine was set lower then usual. And the usual is quite low as it is. Including the EAU

  1. The FDA DID NOT "APPROVE" The Pfizer Vaccine, They AUTHORIZED it For Use. EUA = Emergency Use Authorization

In my opinion, based on all I've read and written this latest pandemic vaccine trope can only be seen as justification for  mass human experimentation. Without your informed consent!

High Fructose Sweetener is Toxic Swill, an alleged “Food Product” & Implicated in Sickness Fuel by the Covid Virus

Armenia & possible coup in the works? As the remake agenda progresses under the progressive Biden regime. 

From earlier today

High Fructose Sweetener- Disgusting and it's everywhere. It's been implicated time and time again with inflammation in our bodies. This inflammation causes diabetes. Cancer. And has been fueling the sickness induced by Covid. 


Revisit the PFYT report from December 2020:  Vitamin D and COVID 19: The Evidence for Prevention and Treatment of Coronavirus (SARS CoV 2)

We do not consume high fructose sweetener regularly. (Though it's hard to avoid and is include in many more products then it should be- so watch out for it)  This product is toxic beyond belief. And inflammatory.

HFCS and sugar have been shown to drive inflammation, which is associated with an increased risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. In addition to inflammation, excess fructose may increase harmful substances called advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which may harm your cells ( 21 , 22 , 23 ).Sep 27, 2019
Study after study are taking their place in a growing lineup of scientific research demonstrating that consuming high-fructose corn syrup is the fastest way to trash your health.

 Fructose reprogrammes glutamine-dependent oxidative metabolism to support LPS-induced inflammation

 Abstract

Fructose intake has increased substantially throughout the developed world and is associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Currently, our understanding of the metabolic and mechanistic implications for immune cells, such as monocytes and macrophages, exposed to elevated levels of dietary fructose is limited.

See previous post. Entirely

Here, we show that fructose reprograms cellular metabolic pathways to favour glutaminolysis and oxidative metabolism, which are required to support increased inflammatory cytokine production in both LPS-treated human monocytes and mouse macrophages. A fructose-dependent increase in mTORC1 activity drives translation of pro-inflammatory cytokines in response to LPS. LPS-stimulated monocytes treated with fructose rely heavily on oxidative metabolism and have reduced flexibility in response to both glycolytic and mitochondrial inhibition, suggesting glycolysis and oxidative metabolism are inextricably coupled in these cells. The physiological implications of fructose exposure are demonstrated in a model of LPS-induced systemic inflammation, with mice exposed to fructose having increased levels of circulating IL-1β after LPS challenge. Taken together, our work underpins a pro-inflammatory role for dietary fructose in LPS-stimulated mononuclear phagocytes which occurs at the expense of metabolic flexibility.

Introduction

Typically, activation of the human innate immune system requires the rewiring of cellular metabolic pathways largely to favour glucose metabolism1,2,3,4,5. However, in the various nutrient environments they inhabit, monocytes will be exposed to a range of different carbon sources, the availability of which will likely dictate their metabolism and phenotype. One such carbon source is fructose, the second most abundant dietary sugar found in humans. Fructose is metabolised by glycolysis either by ketohexokinase producing fructose-1-phosphate, a substrate for aldolase B6 (in the liver, kidneys and intestines for example) or converted to the glycolytic intermediate fructose-6-phosphate by hexokinase (HK), albeit at a lower rate than glucose7,8.

 Fructose intake has increased substantially throughout the Western world, largely attributed to elevated sucrose and high fructose corn syrup consumption9 and is thought to exacerbate various non-communicable conditions such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease9. Chronic fructose consumption in these conditions has recently been shown to drive hepatic fructolysis, where the expression of lipogenic genes is enhanced10,11,12.

Typically, physiological levels of fructose in the circulation range from 0.04 to 0.2 mM13; however, there are several pathophysiological scenarios in which levels of fructose are elevated. For example, peripheral blood levels can exceed 1 mM in patients with haematological malignancies such as acute myeloid leukaemia and acute lymphoblastic leukaemia14. In addition, fructose concentrations in the bone marrow microenvironment of haematological cancer patients can reach up to 5 mM14. Alterations in the glucose to fructose ratio, particularly when glucose is scarce, enables acute myeloid leukaemia blasts to significantly enhance fructose uptake14. Localised mouse tissue microenvironments, such as the liver, kidneys and jejunum, also have elevated levels of fructose metabolism15. Therefore, there are various pathophysiological scenarios and tissue microenvironments where monocytes will be exposed to either equimolar concentrations of fructose and glucose or concentrations of fructose exceeding that of glucose
The impact of elevated fructose exposure on the immune system has not been investigated extensively. Chronic fructose exposure in rats results in a more inflammatory phenotype of bone marrow mononuclear cells16. While there is some evidence that lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated human dendritic cells are able to produce enhanced levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines when cultured in fructose as opposed to glucose, the underlying metabolic rewiring that enables this pro-inflammatory phenotype has not been investigated17.

Here we characterise how human monocytes and mouse macrophages respond metabolically and functionally to fructose exposure. We show that activated mononuclear phagocytes demonstrate plasticity in engaging metabolism of this alternative carbon source, yet it leaves the cells metabolically inflexible and vulnerable to further metabolic challenge. Fructose exposure reprogrammes cellular pathways to favour glutaminolysis and oxidative metabolism, which support an inflammatory phenotype in both human and mouse mononuclear phagocytes. Finally, we demonstrate that a short-term high fructose diet promotes inflammation in vivo, suggesting that our findings have pathophysiological significance.
Results
Fructose exposure promotes an oxidative phenotype

We sought to investigate the metabolic response to fructose exposure in activated human monocytes in comparison to other monosaccharides (glucose and galactose) or complete sugar withdrawal. Galactose has been used previously to promote oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) in T cells by reducing glycolysis18. Using the Seahorse Bioanalyzer, we initially injected the monosaccharide (glucose, fructose or galactose) or media control containing no sugar. After 1 h, monocytes were stimulated with LPS and the corresponding extracellular acidification rate (ECAR) and oxygen consumption rate (OCR) were used to measure glycolysis and OXPHOS, respectively, for the duration.

Monocytes incubated with glucose demonstrated a robust increase in basal and LPS-induced ECAR (Fig. 1A). By contrast, monocytes treated with fructose or galactose had low baseline levels of glycolysis, only slightly greater than no sugar controls (Fig. 1A). In addition, monocytes treated with fructose, galactose or no sugar had only a modest increase in ECAR post-LPS exposure (Fig. 1A). Upon activation, glucose-treated cells reduced their OCR, consistent with the reported metabolic switch from OXPHOS to glycolysis upon activation3. Monocytes treated with fructose, galactose or no sugar had an initial burst of increased oxygen consumption and maintained higher OCR for the duration of the assay (Fig. 1B). This demonstrates metabolic flexibility of human monocytes, in this case towards OXPHOS when the cells are unable to engage in glycolysis.
I'll have more information on the affects of  the toxic swill Fructose Sweetener on your immune system at a later date.

Armenia: Coup In The Works? Whose Coup? War Maker Biden. NED 404 & Cached Finds..

Pashinyan is in trouble. Clearly. And he has been since the settling of the Nagorno Karabakh fighting.  But, who are the players behind this trouble?

  • 1- The people? To some degree, yes.
  • 2- Russia? They've got their friendlies in place. But, I'm not convinced of their involvement  to overthrow- Why bother? Really?
  • 3- The US and friends? I'm certain that, yes, the US and their friends, particularly in the EU maybe pulling strings behind the scene.

Let's recall 3 recent reports:

Updated 4:18 pm EST:

First up : November 19/20  Turkey and Russia Transforming Relations? Biden's "ancien regime" Will Be A War Maker, Both Foreign and Domestic

  Biden will appease the self identified left and their idea of social justice by waging war on new people in new places, for all the “right” reasons...

All the memes that appeal to the ‘do righters’ who believe themselves to be bringers of global justice when all these goals serve only to advance the multinational corporate ability to extort massively from the people at enormous expense, on many levels, to humanity. 
Do righters = Social Justice warriors = "woke"

Secondly - January 19, 2021- The Future of Armenia: Three Options For More EU Meddling

As was stated then by yours truly..

The Future of Armenia- is not for Armenia to decide

Have no fear the EU is going to keep it’s foot in the door and continue to force Armenian’s to bend to the will of the globalist capitalist western 5 + 1 eyes agenda. Remember that France’s Macron simply  couldn’t keep his mouth shut as Russia negotiated a settlement in this locale.? France and the US were extremely displeased with the agreement made between Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.   

No one could have thought the settlement, which had the support of Iran and Turkey as well was, going to be allowed to stand without being challenged?

Thirdly: November 29/20   France's Whining Over The Nagarno Karabakh Agreement (Russia, Armenia & Azerbaijan) Continues On. 

 Yah, France. The leadership of that nation has no desire for peace in NK.  None. Nadda, Zéro  Zéro . Still awaiting the answer to the question - Why has France been getting a free pass in the media, alt and msm, for it's heavy handed and obvious involvement in Nagarno Karabakh?

By the way, no one ever stepped forward to explain why it was France was getting a free pass. Alt media? Anti imperial media? Oh, the silence was deafening.

Onto the latest!

PanARMENIAN.Net - The General Staff of the Armenian Army issued a fresh statement on Thursday, Febriary 25, maintaining that their previous statement demanding Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's resignation was not pressured by any person or power.

The statement "is the clear conviction and position of the generals and officers, with a single goal of serving the salvation of the Homeland at this crucial moment. We confirm our position once again," the General Staff said.

The country is facing a serious political crisis after the top military brass demanded Pashinyan's resignation. The PM, however, claims he had already dismissed the chief of the Army General Staff. The parliamentary opposition has already weighed in on the matter, urging against bloodshed and calling for a peaceful transition of power.   
YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 25, ARMENPRESS. The opposition Homeland Salvation Movement demanding the resignation of PM Nikol Pashinyan is rallying in the Freedom Square in downtown Yerevan.

The ARF member Gegham Manukyan, one of the coordinators of the movement, said they will not give in to provocations and urged law enforcement agencies to thwart any such attempts.

Manukyan said the law enforcement agencies ought to join the military’s calls for Pashinyan’s resignation.

The ARF member Artsvik Minasyan added that they support the Armenian military.

Meanwhile, PM Nikol Pashinyan has called on his supporters to rally in the Republic Square after the Armed Forces General Staff issued a statement calling for his resignation. Pashinyan said this statement amounts to an attempted coup.


Homeland Salvation Movement... Sounds like a pro west/ pro NATO party. If you think about it this is a party that represents more war. "Homeland Salvation" And war doesn't benefit the Armenian people.

Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu     

Turkey on Thursday “strongly condemned” what it described as an attempted coup in neighboring Armenia, where Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan was facing calls by the military’s top brass to resign. 
“We strongly condemn the attempted coup in Armenia,” Turkish Foreign Minister
Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told a news conference in Budapest. “We are absolutely against coups and coup attempts anywhere in the world.

 General condemnation? Better to dance with the devil you know? Or a clue as to who is fomenting the coup. (The US/EU/Israel/PKK alliance) Turkey has everything to lose if the aforementioned alliance tosses Pashinyan. Pashinyan has been a tool and a fool, but, he's been subdued quite a bit. Weakened, one would easily say.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan signed a decree today to create a working group tasked with reforming the military and to deepen security ties with Russia.

“We intend to establish even closer cooperation with our number one security partner, Russia. We are confident that as a result of this process, this cooperation will become more effective in the fields of security, military and military-technical cooperation," Pashinyan said at today’s government cabinet session.

Is this move by Pashinyan yet another suggestion to us, a clue, of who is fomenting the coup?

Talk Therapy Is A Better Treatment for Depression then Big Pharma's “Anti Depressants”

Big Pharma's "anti depressants" are like a sick joke on people who actually consume these things.. "Anti depressants" have a well known side effect (so called) they can actually worsen depression

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most widely prescribed class of antidepressant drugs, and they work by increasing levels of a brain chemical called serotonin. While this boost in serotonin occurs within minutes to hours after an SSRI is taken, patients usually have to take the medication for about 2 weeks before experiencing any relief of symptoms. During this delay, the drug may actually aggravate depression, in some cases even increasing the risk for suicide.
Who can forget all the murders that took place when people took their "anti depressants"?

England’s most popular antidepressants have been linked to at least 28 murders, an investigation reveals.

It also uncovered a further 32 reports of users suffering from murderous thoughts since the 1980s.

 But pay no never mind to the reality of these drugs wreaking havoc on your brain. Let's read the latest report from Forbes, that I'd characterize as  yet another "no shit sherlock" item. 

  It’s so plainly obvious that talking, chewing the fat, interacting with other humans you feel comfortable with and are supportive of you is so much better for you then any stinkin’ pharmaceutical interference. Humans are social. They need face to face interaction. They need to talk in person. This is why the so called pandemic is having such deleterious affects on all of us locked down and terrorized by those governments and their media toadies enforcing repressive medical martial law.

Loneliness and Isolation Killing people sure came to pass- Drug Overdoses, Suicides It's all present- Thanks to the tyranny of good intentions.

March 23/20 : Trump, Making Sense? Social Distancing Contrary To Human Nature; Loneliness & Isolation Kill

“Humans are just really intrinsically social creatures. We are the most extreme example of a species that’s decided that collaborating with others is going to be my entire strategy,”

So important is social connection to humans that the lack of it is terrible for our health. America already has high levels of loneliness, considered a public health hazard in itself even before coronavirus isolated us further.

Forbes: Talk Therapy Better Then Anti Depressants

A new paper published in the journal Cognitive Therapy and Research argues that talk therapy is, in most cases, more effective at treating depression than antidepressant medications.

This conclusion is based on fifty years of data and theory comparing the effectiveness of traditional modes of talk therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and antidepressant medications, such as Prozac, Zoloft, and other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs).
The authors, led by Steven Hollon of Vanderbilt University, point to a series of studies showing that people who talk through their depression with a mental health professional are more likely to (1) reduce the duration of depressive episodes and (2) to address the root cause of the depression, making relapse less common. By their estimates, patients treated to remission with talk therapy are half as likely to relapse following treatment as patients treated with antidepressant medications.
“Depression is the most prevalent of the psychiatric disorders and the second leading cause of burden worldwide,” state the researchers. “Cognitive therapy is the most extensively tested of the psychosocial interventions and has been found to be as efficacious as and more enduring than antidepressant medications.”
Their conclusions speak to the power of talk therapy while simultaneously casting doubt on the efficacy of antidepressant medications. In fact, it is their view that antidepressant medications can in certain cases have an “iatrogenic,” or harmful effect, in the treatment of depression. Here’s a summary of their logic:
    Depression is an “evolved” response to help people find solutions to complicated social problems. The authors view depression as an adaptive phenomenon — one that kept our ancestors “safe” by ruminating about complex social problems until they arrived at a solution. For instance, evidence suggests that people are more likely to engage in causal analysis and deep thinking when they are depressed. Studies suggest that depression-like symptoms such as lassitude and the loss of interest in hedonic persuits serve as the body’s way of redirecting energy to the brain to solve important problems. They state, “In melancholia, energy flows to the cortex and makes it resistant to distraction, presumably to keep the individual focused on the problem at hand (ruminating) until he or she arrives at a solution.”
    Antidepressant medications anesthetize us from feeling the physical and emotional effects of depression. Depression medication may help treat the symptoms of depression, but it comes at the cost of allowing people to identify the problems that are causing the depression in the first place. The authors use a classic experiment from biology to make their point. In this study, a team of scientists examined the evasive behavior of squid in response to an attack by one of their natural predators, the sea bass. They state, “Sea bass eat squid and squid try to avoid being eaten. Each species goes through an intricate series of maneuvers when they encounter one another that involve orientation and approach on the part of the sea bass culminating in attack and protective coloration and evasive maneuvers (including spurting out of an ink jet) on the part of the squid. Survival for the squid depends on how soon it starts its evasive maneuvers once a sea bass appears.” To study the effect of physical pain on a squid’s ability to outmaneuver the predatory sea bass, the researchers amputated squids’ swimmers in a test environment, making them more susceptible to predation. The catch was this: they either performed the amputation with or without anasthesia. They found that the squid that had been operated on without anesthesia started their evasive maneuvers earlier and were less likely to be eaten by the sea bass. Applying this logic to humans, the anesthetizing properties of antidepressant medications may help ameliorate the emotional pain caused by depression, but it doesn’t resolve the underlying “threat” that the depression is calling our attention to.
    Talk therapy gets us to the solution faster. Talk therapy, on the other hand, is a way to reduce the length of a depressive episode by providing a method through which people can root out the problems that are causing their depression. Therapeutic approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy have been shown to speed up recovery time and to protect people from relapse. While cognitive behavioral therapy may not dull the pain of the depression per se, it is a true treatment for depression, not a mollification.
Whether or not you agree with their logic, there are a number of important learnings contained in their research. For one, it is almost always unrealistic to view medications as a panacea for any psychological disorder. If that were the case, prevalence rates for psychological illnesses would not be nearly as high as they are, especially in countries where prescription medications are widely available. Second, it reaffirms talk therapy as a first line of defense in the treatment of non-psychotic depression. The authors conclude, “Just as pain serves to signal to squids that have been maimed to begin their evasive maneuvers sooner, we think that depression signals to the individual that there are problems to be solved and that focusing attention on those problems (rumination) is the first step toward finding a solution.”
