    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The death of a 13-year-old student who apparently overdosed on fentanyl at his Connecticut school has drawn renewed pleas for schools to stock the opioid antidote naloxone, as well as for training of both staffers and children on how to recognize and respond to overdoses. The seventh grader was hospitalized Jan. 13 after falling ill at a Hartford school that did not have naloxone on hand. City officials vowed Wednesday to put the antidote in all city schools, as part of a wider drug use and overdose prevention strategy. “Naloxone should be available in all schools,...

    A small study of 133 fully vaccinated people taking immunosuppressive medications found that their antibody levels and ability to neutralize the virus were three times lower than in people not taking these medications. Photo by Debbie Hill/UPI | License Photo Some arthritis drugs may reduce the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines, according to the Arthritis Foundation, which also offers advice on booster shots. Research is limited, but evidence suggests that disease-modifying drugs used for arthritis may reduce the response of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, according to the foundation.

  • SARS-CoV-2 breakthrough infections elicit potent neutralizing antibody responses (is this a good thing?)

    A recent study looked at the strength, durability and breadth of neutralizing antibody responses generated by breakthrough infections in individuals vaccinated against SARS-CoV2. The findings are published this week in Cell, one of the scientific journals of Cell Press. Alexandra Walls and David Veesler in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Washington in Seattle led the project. Characteristics of the Delta and Omicron coronavirus variants of concern include enhanced transmissibility and immune evasion even in non-immunologically naïve individuals, compared to the ancestral pandemic coronavirus. These characteristics, and the waning of immunity from vaccines, have led to breakthrough infections...

    “Human experimentation is being done and people are not consenting to it…this happened before, in Germany, and it led to the Nuremberg Trials.” – Dr. Wolfgang WodargGerman physician and epidemiologist Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg has revealed individual batches of the Covid vaccinations have extremely varying toxicity levels. Some batches have toxicity levels up to 300 times other batches – resulting in hundreds of thousands of deaths. Accordingly, the decision to vaccinate can be akin to a game of Russian roulette.The famous doctor and former politician revealed that the pharmaceutical companies producing the “vaccines” deliberately use different dosages to experiment on citizens....

    Ford Motor Company once manufactured a car called the Ford Pinto. It entered the U.S. market in 1970. Its’ mission for Ford? Stem the flow of car sales to Japanese companies such as Honda, Toyota and Nissan (then called Datsun). Yes – it was a time of rising car imports in America and Detroit was feeling the pressure. In response to this invasion of Japanese vehicles, Lee Iacocca, then a rising star at Ford, demanded that his team come up with a new small car that could compete. The Pinto was born with instructions from Iacocca that it be limited...

    Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla on Saturday said people getting COVID-19 booster shots every four to five months is "not a good scenario" and argued that an annual vaccine would be a better approach to fighting the virus. Bourla told the Hebrew publication N12 News in an exclusive interview that the best way to combat COVID-19 is a vaccine that can be administered every year, not with boosters received every few months, according to Reuters. "This will not be a good scenario," he said when asked about people getting booster shots every four to five months, per the wire service. "What...

    This isn’t going to be pretty, folks. The downfall of a death cult rarely is. There is going to be wailing and gnashing of teeth, incoherent fanatical jabbering, mass deleting of embarrassing tweets.There’s going to be a veritable tsunami of desperate rationalizing, strenuous denying, shameless blame-shifting, and other forms of ass-covering, as suddenly former Covidian Cult members make a last-minute break for the jungle before the fully-vaxxed-and-boosted “Safe and Effective Kool-Aid” servers get to them.Yes, that’s right, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, the official Covid narrative is finally falling apart, or is being hastily disassembled, or historically revised, right before...

In his letter to the inspector general, former DARPA fellow Major Joseph Murphy claimed that, after DARPA rejected EcoHealth Alliance’s proposal to do dangerous and illegal gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses, EcoHealth went to Tony Fauci and got his agency at the NIH to fund the research instead.

    President Biden repeatedly claims that Build Back Better will reduce inflation and says seventeen Nobel Prize-winning economists agree with him. Although Biden lies a lot, it is certainly possible that he could find leftist economists who love big government and socialism, no matter how it fails as an economic system. Socialism essentially makes the government more powerful and makes more people dependent on the government. It gives little opportunity for the poor and middle class to move up. Here are some simple lessons on economic concepts and inflation: In the 1960’s, the government started throwing massive amounts of money at...

    According to the CDC, vaccination is no longer an endpoint, it’s a process. For many months, conservatives have been predicting that the CDC will redefine what it means to be vaccinated. In the distant past—that is, more than two years ago—being vaccinated meant you’d had an injection that left you forever immune to a disease. This became problematic when the COVID vaccines did not leave people immune to the disease. Now there are boosters, so the CDC has announced that you’re not vaccinated unless you’ve also had your booster. Of course, even with that booster, you’re still not immune, as...

    The U.K. Health and Security Agency (UKHSA) announced Friday it is investigating a sub-lineage of the omicron coronavirus variant—known as BA.2 and nicknamed by some scientists as “stealth omicron”—that appears to be outpacing other forms of the variant around the world and is raising fears of an even more transmissible strain of the virus. KEY FACTS In a statement Friday, the UKHSA said it has designated BA.2 a “variant under investigation,” the agency told Forbes, confirming news reports and a since-deleted tweet from the agency. Just 53 samples of BA.2 have been identified in the U.K. by January 10, it...
