Ivermectin critic deplatformed by Youtube

Rolling Stone all but retracts Ivermectin hit piece after hospital denies key assertions

Every time I write about Ivermectin I get a few emails from people telling me to literally “f*** off” and that I’m a “f***ing idiot”. Thanks for that. I hope you have a nice day too.

Perhaps I do a bad job explaining that the controversy around Ivermectin isn’t really about Ivermectin, it’s about narrative and it’s about media integrity and it’s about credibility.

Here we have a critic of Ivermectin who made a documentary examining the claims of proponents of it who was deplatformed from Youtube “for distributing medical misinformation” even though everything within that documentary would be considered in complete conformity with current guidance and policy regarding the drug.

The subtext here is profound: David Fuller, the author of the documentary told Matt Taibbi that he

“Deliberately chose to tell the story on Rebel Wisdom rather than pitching it to a legacy media outfit,” he says. “I didn’t want to give Bret’s [Weinstein] fans the chance to paint it as an ‘MSM smear.’”

Good call, ordinarily, because as Taibbi noted,

“Fuller was making a conscious effort to use an independent editorial approach, as a means of side-stepping the credibility concerns that some audiences have with mainstream outlets.”

Taibbi is making a rare use of understatement. The MSM has lost all credibiility. This is something I’ve been saying is a serious problem for a couple hundred issues of this god forsaken newsletter now.

It appears as if the algos seem to simply zero in on anything talking about Ivermectin that isn’t from a mainstream media outlet. It’s the latter part that is more worrisome than the former.

Fuller:

““These topics, especially ivermectin, have become swallowed whole as culture war signifiers.” As a result, “we’re now in a world where the mainstream won’t ‘platform’ alternative claims for fear of ‘false equivalence’ and are trying to keep alive a broken system of gatekeeping.””

Read: https://taibbi.substack.com/p/meet-the-censored-ivermectin-critic

Anyone following along at home knows how I feel about algorithms and this societal love affair with “AI”, which doesn’t exist, and will never exist in the context we understand it. If it did, we wouldn’t have Facebook algos tagging videos of black men as “primates.”

Shockingly, CDC Now Lists Vaccinated Deaths as Unvaccinated
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola
September 15, 2021

*** begin quote ***

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you’re not counted as fully vaccinated until a full 14 days have passed since your second injection in the case of Pfizer or Moderna, or 14 days after your first dose of Janssen, despite the fact that over 80% of deaths after the vaccines occur in this window. How convenient
  • Anyone who dies within the first 14 days post-injection is counted as an unvaccinated death. Not only does this inaccurately inflate the unvaccinated death toll, but it also hides the real dangers of the COVID shots, as the vast majority of deaths from these shots occur within the first two weeks
  • The CDC also has two different sets of testing guidelines — one for vaccinated patients and another for the unvaccinated. If you’re unvaccinated, CDC guidance says to use a cycle threshold (CT) of 40, known to result in false positives. If you’re vaccinated, they recommend using a CT of 28 or less, which minimizes the risk of false positives
  • The CDC also hides vaccine failures and props up the “pandemic of the unvaccinated” narrative by only counting breakthrough cases that result in hospitalization or death
  • Hospitals are still also reporting non-COVID related illnesses as COVID-19

9/11: the Controlled Demolition of Trust in Authority

*** begin quote ***

You don’t have to be Hegel to know that if the thesis is 100% belief in the media, and the antithesis is 100% disbelief, the correct synthesis is somewhere in between. While the media is obviously paid to lie about a long list of extremely important matters, it also sometimes publishes or broadcasts accurate information, whether by accident or because the billionaires and security wonks at the top of the military-corporate power pyramid don’t really care about suppressing those particular nuggets of truthful information. The sum total of lies and truths told by authorities normally congeals into a somewhat vague and nebulous consensus reality, a set of “public myths” that most people accept and embrace, expressly or tacitly, and use to guide themselves in their collective actions.

Two Key Senior FDA Officials Resign Over Vaccine Decisions
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola

*** begin quote ***

While the resignations of Gruber and Krause might indicate to some that the COVID boosters have a political foundation rather than a scientific one, concerns over FDA misconduct have been present for over a year.

In a June 2021 DarkHorse interview,12 the inventor of the mRNA and DNA vaccine core platform technology,13 Dr. Robert Malone, said he’d warned the FDA that the spike protein — which the COVID-19 “vaccines” instruct your cells to make — could be dangerous.

The FDA dismissed his concerns, saying they did not believe the spike protein was biologically active. Besides, the vaccine makers specifically designed the injections so the spike protein would stick and not float about freely.

Well, they were wrong on both accounts. It’s since been well-established that, indeed, the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein gets free,14 and that it is biologically active and causes severe problems.

Time to end the FDA and just let the Free Market “discipline” Big Pharma!

This is a government that has grown so corrupt, greedy, power-hungry and tyrannical over the course of the past 240-plus years that our constitutional republic has since given way to idiocracy, and representative government has given way to a kleptocracy (a government ruled by thieves) and a kakistocracy (a government run by unprincipled career politicians, corporations and thieves that panders to the worst vices in our nature and has little regard for the rights of American citizens).

What this really amounts to is a war on the American people, fought on American soil, funded with taxpayer dollars, and waged with a single-minded determination to use national crises, manufactured or otherwise, in order to transform the American homeland into a battlefield.

Imagine your confusion as the same people who spent three months telling you not only that masks don’t work, but that there are several reasons you shouldn’t wear or purchase them, suddenly introduce mask mandates. We’re “following the science,” they tell you. This seems to make little sense, but a pandemic is no time for questions. And who knows, maybe our understanding of the science evolved?

As you cautiously go to the supermarket, you notice that masks have made people less likely to socially distance. You remember reading somewhere that bicycle helmets work similarly: They give the wearer more confidence, and the result is often more accidents and injuries, not fewer. “Silly people,” you say to yourself. “If only they would follow the experts.”

You turn on your TV and learn that shoppers at your local supermarket aren’t the only ones who have been ignoring the rules. Nancy Pelosi arranged for a salon, shutdown by government decree, to open privately for her—then publicly blamed the business owner for violating the lockdown. California Gov. Gavin Newsom is seen eating dinner at one of the most expensive restaurants in America with a large group of unmasked people indoors. In the U.K., Neil Ferguson, the epidemiologist whose projections were used as the basis for lockdowns, appears to have broken his own rules to get some action with his married lover. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s chief adviser, Dominic Cummings, drove halfway across the country to ensure he had a better place to isolate. The journalists who berate him for this are later found to have attended an unmasked, indoor birthday party in breach of the rules. The lockdowns continue.

As a matter of Technocrat policy, “If people can’t hoard physical money, it becomes much easier to cut rates far below zero.” This means your banked funds risk being plundered at the will of the policy makers. Eventually, all money accrues to the takers while the depositors see their wealth vanish. ⁃ Technocracy News & Trends Editor Patrick Wood

By: James Mackintosh via WSJ

*** begin quote ***

Investors have been ignoring progress toward government-issued electronic money, even as many countries are progressing rapidly toward their own online cash. They should ask two questions: Will the Federal Reserve issue a digital dollar? And will it eventually replace physical bank notes?

I think the answer to both questions is yes, and those who agree should be assessing the impact on future monetary policy already, because dramatic change is likely within the timespan of the 30-year Treasury.

The main monetary power of the digital dollar comes from the abolition of bank notes. If people can’t hoard physical money, it becomes much easier to cut interest rates far below zero; otherwise the zero rate on bank notes stuffed under the mattress looks attractive. And if interest rates can go far below zero, monetary policy is suddenly much more powerful and better suited to tackle deflation.

Holding gold and silver is one strategy to defeat the Central Bankers.

Everything Points to Thierry Meyssan Being Right About 9/11
By Thierry Meyssan
Voltairenet.org
September 6, 2021

*** begin quote ***
 
By challenging the official version of the 9/11 attacks, Thierry Meyssan opened a worldwide debate. But the essence of his book on the subject was a political science study predicting the evolution of the United States after these crimes. The problem is not how the attacks were committed, but why the US reacted that day by violating its own Constitution, why it implemented in the following days very deep reforms of its institutions that changed its nature. Thierry Meyssan had predicted the transformation of the American Empire that we are seeing with the planning of the fall of Kabul. Everything he predicted has been confirmed over the last twenty years.

*** and ***

• To this day, there is no evidence of the 19 designated hijackers on board the hijacked planes. They were not on the lists of passengers on board the planes released by the airlines on the same day. The videos of the hijackers at the airport were not taken in New York, but at other airports where they were transiting.

• To date, there is no evidence that the 35 telephone communications between passengers on the hijacked flights and the ground existed [8]. This applies both to the conversation attributed to the brave passenger who allegedly attacked the hijackers on UA 93, and to the conversation testified to by US Solicitor General Theodore Olson with his wife on AA 77. In contrast, at the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui (accused of being the 20th hijacker who would not have boarded the plane), the FBI testified that none of the planes had phones in the armrests, that passengers should have used mobile phones, that cell phones at the time could not work at altitudes above 5,000 feet, and that the records provided by the phone companies did not show any of the communications mentioned – including that of Attorney General Olson.

• To date, there is no physical explanation for the collapse of three of the World Trade Center towers onto their own footprints (i.e. vertically). The Twin Towers were hit by two planes, but were not shaken. However, their fuel would have run down the vertical beams and melted them. A third tower was destabilised by the fall of the first two to its side. It too would have collapsed, not laterally, but vertically. It should be noted that no explanation was given for the lateral explosions heard by the firemen and widely filmed, nor for the vertical beams that were severed and not melted; two pieces of evidence attesting not to an accidental but to a controlled demolition. It should also be noted that no collapse of skyscrapers has ever been observed, either before or after 9/11, following a large-scale fire… and that no one has learned the lessons of this attack and therefore changed the way such buildings are constructed to prevent such a catastrophe. Finally, the photographs taken by firefighters of “pools” of molten steel and those taken by FEMA (the disaster management agency) of the melting rocks in which the foundations were built are inexplicable according to the official version.

• To date, there is no evidence that an airliner hit the Pentagon. Already the next day, the fire brigade had given a press conference at the Pentagon during which they had attested that they had not found anything suggestive of a plane. The authorities, who had issued a vengeful statement against my book, announced that they had collected many parts of the plane and reconstructed it in a hangar. Then they stopped communicating on this subject. Moreover, the families of the passengers of the plane in question, after having been scandalised by my words, changed their minds when they were given back funeral urns, claiming to have identified the bodies of their relatives thanks to their fingerprints (which would have been totally destroyed during fires at those temperatures). Some refused to sign the confidentiality agreement offered to them in exchange for large compensation payments.

Now maybe there’s some “good explanation” of these “inconvenient” truths.

I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it.

State Department Rejects Private Evacuation Flights From Afghanistan
Sebastian Hughes / @ooghes / September 08, 2021

*** begin quote ***

The State Department will not give official approval to any private evacuation flight from Afghanistan seeking to land in third countries, leaked emails obtained by Fox News show.

“No independent charters are allowed to land at [Al Udeid Air Base], the military airbase you mentioned in your communication with Samantha Power,” a State Department official said in a Sept. 1 email to Eric Montalvo, who organized charter flights out of Afghanistan, Fox News reported.

“In fact, no charters are allowed to land at an [sic] DoD base, and most if not all countries in the Middle Eastern region, with the exception [that] perhaps Saudi Arabia will allow charters to land,” the department official wrote. “You need to find another destination country, and it can’t be the U.S. either.”

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Tuesday that the State Department was working “around the clock” to take care of “any roadblocks” so that all charter flights “carrying Americans or others to whom we have a special responsibility can depart Afghanistan safely.”

The Biden administration has delayed private evacuation efforts while American citizens and Afghan allies remain trapped in Afghanistan, Fox News reported.

The Fed Is Helping Facilitate Trailer Park Evictions
BY TYLER DURDEN
WEDNESDAY, SEP 08, 2021 – 09:01 AM
Authored by Michael Maharrey via SchiffGold.com,

*** begin quote ***

The Federal Reserve is helping corporate real estate investors evict poor people from mobile home parks.

NPR highlighted the growing number of mobile home part evictions. According to the report, real estate investors continue to buy up mobile home parks across the US. They then raise lot rents and fees, and evict residents who can’t pay.

As the report explains, the government makes this scheme possible with easy financing through agencies such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Here’s how it works in a nutshell.

A company raises rates and fees in a park. That makes the park more valuable. So they can now borrow more money against it, kind of like when you refi your house and get cash out of the deal. They pull out, say, $3 million, and they use that to go buy another mobile home park. And then they do that again and again. It’s a cascade of borrowed money. And often, these loans are backed by the US government. They provide very, very low-cost debt for these investors to get enough cash out to go buy additional parks. The loans have super cheap interest rates because they’re guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-backed entities at the heart of the US mortgage market.”
NPR gets part of the story right. In fact, it’s pretty impressive that they didn’t just pin the blame on “greedy capitalists.”

Nevertheless, the story completely misses the biggest player in this game – the Federal Reserve.

*** and ***

This is yet another way the Fed distorts the economy, drives misallocations of resources, transfers wealth from the poor to the rich, and generally wreaks havoc.

LIBERTARIAN: Let’s “fix” healthcare

 

*** begin quote ***

Obamacare was the latest government meddling, and it meddled in a big way, but before Obamacare, there were Medicaid and Medicare.

The AMA opposed Medicare when it was proposed because the doctors feared that it was the first step toward socialized medicine.

So, when it finally passed in 1965, the government reimbursed providers generously to gain acceptance.

With a third party footing the bill, doctors and hospitals had no incentive to hold down costs, but eventually, costs had to be reined in.

Private health insurance companies tended to follow the lead of the government with generous coverage and reimbursement, but over time, they were forced to control costs.

Since Medicare and Medicaid, there have been several unsuccessful attempts to control health care costs.

Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) and Managed Care Organizations or capitation plans that paid doctors a fixed amount regardless of the amount of care provided were never widely accepted in the marketplace, primarily because patients had no incentive to keep costs low.

Premiums went up every year, but most were insulated from the rising cost because employers were picking up the extra expense.

The Obama administration talked about “bending the cost curve” with the ACA, but the real objective was to provide wider access to insurance.

How can you possibly control the cost of health insurance if you do not deal with the underlying cost of the care?

The common denominator in each of these failures is that choice and individual control were taken away from consumers and turned over to a third party.

In a free market, individuals have options and the freedom to choose based on criteria that are important to them.health careOur current system doesn’t allow for choice because a third-party payer is in the middle, making decisions based almost entirely on cost.

At the very least, let’s separate “health insurance” from “employment” by making it tax deductible — putting it on a par with employer health “benefits”.  After all, if you lose or change a job. Then you don’t lose your car insurance!

A few months ago, Governor Greg Abbott signed the “heartbeat law,” and everyone on the left was screaming about going to the courts to fight for “reproductive rights.” Frankly, I thought we’d be in the courts by now rather than watching the new law go into effect.

What should be a very private decision between a woman and her support “staff” is suddenly the Federal Gooferment’s business.

I’m a fat old white guy injineer; not a doctor or an ethicist.  And I’ve never stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.  But I’ll go out on a limb and say, in the absence of some consensus otherwise, the Gooferment, at all levels, should focus on more pressing problems.  The debt, the deficit, and such come to mind!

Cable companies in New Jersey may soon be forced to provide you with better customer service.

But it’s possible you’d end up paying for the improved communication.

The state agency that oversees utilities is in the process of adopting new rules related to the way cable companies handle incoming phone calls from users and provide the work needed in order to resolve customers’ problems.

“All I want is for people to get what they pay for,” Joseph Fiordaliso, president of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, told New Jersey 101.5. “Right now, the general customer service experience, in our estimation, is not acceptable.”

A 46-page proposal, dotted with proposed changes aimed at improving the customer experience, was unveiled and approved by the BPU at a meeting in August. A virtual public hearing concerning the proposal is scheduled for Nov. 2 at 10 a.m., and comments may be submitted to the agency through Dec. 2.

Fact-Checking 9 Major Biden Claims About Retreat From Afghanistan

1. Trump ‘Made a Deal’ With Taliban

Biden repeatedly said that he was bound by the February 2020 agreement between the Trump administration and the Taliban that the U.S. would exit Afghanistan. Many Republicans are among those who criticized the Trump deal with the Taliban. 

Biden said again Tuesday that when he came into office, the Taliban was in the strongest position it had been in since 2001 because of a deal with the Trump administration specifying that the U.S. would pull out by May 1. 

“The previous administration’s agreement said that if we stuck to the May 1 deadline that we had signed on to leave by, the Taliban wouldn’t attack any American forces, but if we stay, all bets were off,” Biden said during his national address from the State Dining Room of the White House, adding:

So, we were left with a simple decision, either follow through the commitment made by the last administration and leave Afghanistan or say we weren’t leaving and commit another tens of thousands more troops going back to war. That was the choice, the real choice.
During his brief press conference last Thursday after the terrorist attack at the Kabul airport, Biden, responding to Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, said he bears responsibility. 

But he also blamed his predecessor, Donald Trump. 

“You know as well as I do that the former president made a deal with the Taliban that he would get all of the American forces out of Afghanistan by May 1,” Biden said. “In return … he was given a commitment that the Taliban would continue to attack others, but would not attack any American forces. Remember that?”

Data Reveal the Truth About COVID Countermeasures
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola August 08, 2021

*** begin quote ***

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Data from Israel, where the vast majority of the population has been injected with the Pfizer mRNA concoction, show those “vaccinated” against COVID-19 and unvaccinated have the same infection rate, regardless of age. Empirical data from other countries also reveal the injections have no effect on transmission
  • Ivor Cummins suspects the obsession with COVID-19 injections has to do with profiteering and with justifying vaccine passports. The enormous emphasis on getting nearly everyone the COVID injection may also be related to elimination of the control group, which will effectively hide the real damage the injection is doing
  • Moderna and Pfizer have eliminated the original control groups by giving controls the real injection. This was done even though the trials are officially ongoing for another two years. So, there are no official control groups against which to assess the effectiveness and safety of these injections
  • Side effects of the COVID shots are vastly under-reported, so it’s very difficult to get a grasp on the real-world magnitude of the risks. According to a CDC whistleblower, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) under-reports deaths by a factor of five or more
  • In sworn testimony, the whistleblower claims 45,000 Americans had died within three days of their COVID shots as of July 9, 2021. The numbers get even higher when looking at deaths occurring within a week or two of the injections

Any wonder why the politicians and bureaucrats are pushing the vax?

AND, no “official control group”?

Next come the vax passports and “where are your papers?!!”.

GOVERNACIDE: Why then were the bombs dropped?

The Hiroshima Myth
By John V. Denson of Mises.org

*** begin quote ***

The stark fact is that the Japanese leaders, both military and civilian, including the emperor, were willing to surrender in May of 1945 if the emperor could remain in place and not be subjected to a war crimes trial after the war. This fact became known to President Truman as early as May of 1945. The Japanese monarchy was one of the oldest in all of history, dating back to 660 BC. The Japanese religion added the belief that all the emperors were the direct descendants of the sun goddess, Amaterasu. The reigning Emperor Hirohito was the 124th in the direct line of descent. After the bombs were dropped on August 6 and 9 of 1945, and their surrender soon thereafter, the Japanese were allowed to keep their emperor on the throne and he was not subjected to any war crimes trial. The emperor, Hirohito, came on the throne in 1926 and continued in his position until his death in 1989. Since President Truman, in effect, accepted the conditional surrender offered by the Japanese as early as May of 1945, the question is posed, “Why then were the bombs dropped?”

A performer at former President Barack Obama’s birthday party managed to take stealth pictures of the opulent Martha’s Vineyard event and share them with Instagram followers.

Rapper Trap Beckham and manager TJ Chapman discreetly snapped pics of the event’s high-end food, drink and swag offerings and talked to their followers as the party unfolded, according to screenshots of the posts, which were later deleted under the event’s photography ban.

I guess because it was too big for the current rules, maskless, and non-vegan.

Guess the hypocritical socialist elite can’t have the bourgeoisie and the peasants see the opulence of today’s Marie Antoinettes!

Through incompetence and corruption, Illinois may lose two nuke reactors and their power grid
JAZZ SHAW Aug 07, 2021 4:01 PM ET

*** begin quote ***

Meanwhile, without a way to keep the nuclear power plants afloat, the Illinois power grid is teetering on the edge of disaster. They’ve known this problem was coming for a long time. Back in May the Chicago Sun-Times (never a hotbed of conservative opinions) published an editorial warning them that they needed to get off the stick and get this bill passed. This isn’t a problem that’s going to solve itself and it won’t just go away. What will go away is the state’s ability to supply electricity. And then you’re going to see the torches and pitchforks come out in a serious fashion.

*** end quote ***

You have to admire “political leadership”.  See a problem; kick the can down the road.

All for “climate change” virtue signaling.  

Even if, big <synonym for the act of procreation> -ing IF, you buy into “climate change” (which was “global warming” until it wasn’t warming and before that “global cooling” until it wasn’t cooling any more), until China and India change their ways and embrace poverty, nothing will change.

In the meantime, “We, The Sheeple” in the Pepuls Republik of Ill-and-annoy are going to get an fun carnival ride.

And, don’t dare blew it on Free Market Capitalism.

I wonder how a black market aka a free market in energy will evolve?

GOLDBUG: What if all the gold in Fort Know has long since left the country

The Extinction Of Gold Derivatives
BY TYLER DURDEN
SATURDAY, AUG 07, 2021 – 07:00 AM
Authored by Alasdair Macleod via GoldMoney.com,

*** begin quote ***

The escape route of digital currencies probably explains why reducing the role of commercial banks in financial markets by curtailing their derivative activities is not raising serious concerns at the central bank level, let alone over the likely impact on the gold price. We can only conclude that at the highest levels of government the authorities are no longer concerned that a rising gold price is a challenge to fiat currencies and can be simply dismissed — in which case they will have underestimated the likely consequences of reversing a fifty-year tide of gold suppression.

*** end quote ***

All fiat currencies fail; it’s just a question of when.

In the pre-Fed pre-FDR days, one could save gold and silver coins as a “store of value”.  Since then “everyone” believes in the good old U$D.

I don’t.  

Catholic high school, taught by grizzly vets of WWII and Korea turned into religious, we learned Roman history.  Often struggling over the Latin. “nequam” stuck in my mind about the amount of silver in the Roman denarii.  

On a visit to the Smithsonian, I saw a display of the French franc of Louis I to Louis XVII which went from a hockey puck of gold to a paper thin shirt button.

At least in those cases, you could see the only shrink.  Now the FRB “greenbacks” look the same but their value has shrunk to next to nothing.

I don’t know when this very ugly chicken will come home to roost, but it will come.

Anyone not saving some silver and gold coins will have a rude awakening.
