    The Evil of Coerced MedicineThe following is an adapted excerpt, published recently in the Washington Times, from my book “The New Abnormal: The Rise of the Biomedical Security State” In their understandable enthusiasm to roll out the novel covid vaccines as widely and quickly as possible in early 2021, the public health establishment succumbed to two dangerous temptations: Propaganda and coercion.That their approach deployed these with the common good in mind (achieving herd immunity) and with good intentions (ending the pandemic as quickly as possible) does not alter the fact that such approaches were deeply misguided and represented deeply disturbing...

    Two Sydneysiders challenged fines for Covid Public Health Order breaches. Case was run by Redfern Legal Centre in New South Wales Supreme Court. Hearing did not go ahead when the government conceded fines were invalid. Commissioner of Fines Administration then withdrew 33,121 penalty notices . Thousands more such fines across NSW could now be found to be invalid. ... More than 33,000 people who were fined for Covid breaches will get refunds after two Sydneysiders won a landmark test case and the NSW government admitted the fines were invalid.

    The White House on Tuesday announced “new enforcement guidance” on COVID-19 vaccine mandates for nursing home residents and staff. It announced “new enforcement guidance to ensure nursing homes are offering updated COVID-19 vaccines and timely treatment to their residents and staff,” according to a White House fact sheet released Tuesday morning. It said that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) still requires “nursing homes to educate their residents” on COVID-19 vaccines and to offer vaccines to residents. “CMS will issue guidance today reminding health care providers of this requirement,” the fact sheet said. “In its guidance, CMS will...

    Why? Because that's what the policy is! Nobody is allowed to ask why, not even Stanford faculty. The policy is: "Just shut up, do what you are told, and don't ask questions." That's how science works. ... My previous article on Stanford’s vaccination policy was incorrect. I was fooled because they issued very unclear guidance on Oct 17, 2022 which basically said they encourage people to take the shots. I clarified this with Lucia Sinatra of NoCollegeMandates: the primary series and a booster is required for Stanford students. Why? This makes no sense. Well, it’s the policy. And even Stanford...

    Ontario’s chief medical officer of health says the province won’t mandate masks, though he is “strongly recommending” residents to wear masks indoors amid the onset of a combination of three respiratory viruses. Dr. Kieran Moore made the comments during a press conference on Nov. 14, warning about the combined threats of COVID-19, seasonal respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and influenza, which he said are contributing to an increase in the hospitalization of sick children. “In response to the worsening trends and existing challenges for our healthcare system, I’m strongly recommending that all Ontarians, not just those at high risk, wear a...

    Residents of the Big Apple have plenty to fear these days. Violent crime is one of those things. In fact, it is probably the most important thing. Just this past week, a man was arguing with a woman in a subway station in the Bronx. During the argument, the woman pushed the man into a group of three other men, who slashed his face with an ice pick. An ice pick? I thought those were only used by Victorian-era serial killers and psychopaths in movies. Where does one even get an ice pick these days? Last Friday, a woman who...
  • Prominent Pollster Scott Rasmussen Says Time for America to Mandate All Ballots Be Counted on Election Day

    With states like Arizona, Nevada and Alaska taking days to determine midterm election results, influential pollster Scott Rasmussen says there is overwhelming support for America to mandate ballots be in and counted by Election Day.“One of the 80% issues, and there aren’t a whole lot of 80% issues in America-one of them is that all ballots should be in by Election Day,” Scott Rasmussen said Wednesday night on the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “We should know the results on Election Day.”Such a new mandate would make it nearly impossible to have a system like ranked-choice voting, which...

    Hollywood star Fran Drescher — who is the president of SAG-AFTRA, Hollywood’s largest actors union — has blasted COVID vaccine mandates as an infringement on basic liberties, saying no one should be forced to take the vaccine as a condition for work, travel, dining, or attending public events. In a recently posted TikTok video that has gone viral, Fran Drescher warned that overzealous mandates could turn into a form of “fascism.” ... to make that one vaccine the criteria for who is allowed to work, travel, dine, go to theater, etc., is an infringement on the Disabilities Act, the Freedom...

    How bad is the rise in mortality? So bad funeral companies are starting to worry. Today Service Corporation International, the largest for-profit funeral operator in North America, had its quarterly earnings call. SCI had another great quarter, you’ll be pleased to hear!

(Death is your best investment!) ... the third quarter of this year, we did 15% more calls than we did in the third quarter of 2019. That is not what anybody...

    The only explanation for the mandate is that it was implemented to deter right-leaning poll workers from overseeing election procedures. ... The city of Madison is requiring that election inspectors and poll workers “Provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19, proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test, or obtain a medical or religious exemption in advance of working the polls.” Mark Jefferson, the executive director of the Wisconsin Republican Party, told The Federalist that Madison originally had a blanket Covid mandate with no exceptions at the start of this year. However, after the Republican Party began pursuing legal recourse,...

    The first post-COVID election in the United States is upon us and Republicans and Democrats are flying through this final week in decidedly different moods. Republicans are eagerly anticipating riding a red wave that they hope carries them to majorities in the House and Senate, and then to the White House in 2024. The Democrats, on the other hand, are all weighed down by a Joe Biden-shaped millstone and the sudden, harsh realization that substituting pathological prevarication for policy is no longer a winning strategy for them. The conventional wisdom is that a toxic combination of inflation and crime will...

    All together now: Healthy children are at a vanishingly small risk for serious illness or death from COVID-19, and the novel mRNA shot can produce harmful side effects in young people, with myocarditis in young men being especially pronounced. In recognition of these clearly observable trends, some countries, such as Holland and the UK, have recommended children not get COVID shots. Yet, inexplicably, the CDC’s advisory panel voted unanimously on Wednesday to add the COVID shot to the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program. (Well, inexplicable unless you look at them as compromised hacks in bed with Big Pharma.) Panel member...

    The New York state Supreme Court has reinstated all employees who were fired for not being vaccinated, ordering back pay and saying their rights had been violated. The court found Monday that "being vaccinated does not prevent an individual from contracting or transmitting COVID-19." New York City Mayor Eric Adams claimed earlier this year that his administration would not rehire employees who had been fired over their vaccination status. NYC alone fired roughly 1,400 employees for being unvaccinated earlier this year after the city adopted a vaccine mandate under former Mayor Bill de Blasio.

    I was appalled, but not surprised, when on Saturday, September 24, the Dean of Students at Wellesley College, where I am a student, buried at the end of an email to the student body that all students at Wellesley would be required to receive a shot of the new bivalent Covid-19 booster. Then on October 11, we were informed this mandate would take effect on December 1, nearly three weeks before the end of the semester. This announcement follows similar decisions from Tufts University, Harvard University, and the University of California, among others. It also follows a growing body of...

    The Federal Court will not hear challenges against the federal government’s vaccine mandate for air travel after dismissing them as moot. On Thursday, Associate Chief Justice Jocelyne Gagné granted the federal government’s application to dismiss the case, 10 days before it was scheduled to be argued before the Federal Court. The court was going to hear challenges filed by several applicants, including former Newfoundland premier Brian Peckford, People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier, and private citizens who were unable to travel by rail or air when the federal vaccine mandate was in effect. The Trudeau government imposed the mandate...

    A group of Republican lawmakers are calling on the Biden administration to reassess the U.S. Coast Guard’s policy for “religious exemptions from the COVID-19 vaccination order,” which will likely force the involuntary discharge of a service member whom President Joe Biden thanked last month for his “heroic work.” Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., along with 16 other congressmen, sent a letter to Biden, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and U.S. Coast Guard Commandant Linda Fagan on Monday regarding the administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for U.S. Coast Guard members. “Service members that have not obtained a COVID-19 vaccine risk an...

    As early as Thursday, October 20th - The CDC will Vote on adding COVID-19 “vaccine” to childhood shot list On Thursday it is anticipated that the CDC will vote on whether to add the COVID-19 shot to the recommended schedule of childhood immunizations. This would mean that schools across the nation would require children to have this shot as part of the entrance health requirements. On October 20, 2022, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) will be meeting. One of the agenda items appears to be a vote to recommend adding...

    Conservatives have long been concerned about companies discriminating against their viewpoints and promoting a left-wing agenda, but there have been few conservative-leaning businesses offering viable alternatives. Several new companies have emerged to combat this problem in various fields including financial services, entertainment and consumer goods; conservative entrepreneurs want to influence the culture and offer an alternative to businesses that are hostile to their beliefs. “This movement has to be cultural, it can’t just be about business … It’s about daring people to think this way and showing them it can be done. It transcends a lot of the fake and...
