  • Before America Had Witch Trials, Europe Had Werewolf Trials

    10/16/2021 10:44:33 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 16 replies ^ | OCT 15, 2021 | Mekinda Beck
    A few of the accused may have been actual pedophiles or serial killers, but many were beggars, hermits or recent émigrés who were tortured into confessions.Some 200 years before the witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts, courts in Europe were convicting men—and some women—of transforming into werewolves and mutilating and eating children. The punishments were sometimes as gruesome as the alleged crimes. In Germany in 1589, executioners strapped accused werewolf Peter Stumpp to a cart wheel, removed his skin with hot pinchers and chopped off his head before burning his body at the stake. Stumpp's head, attached to a wolf carcass,...

    Pfizer has been extremely aggressive in trying to protect the details of their international COVID19 vaccine agreements. If you were wondering why #Ivermectin was suppressed, well, it is because the agreement that countries had with Pfizer does not allow them to escape their contract, which states that even if a drug will be found to treat COVID19 the contract cannot be voided. Supplying the product: "Pfizer shall have no liability for any failure to deliver doses in accordance with any estimated delivery dates... nor shall any such failure give Purchaser any right to cancel orders for any quantities of Product."...
  • Out Of The Depths...a Meditation of Psalm 130 pt 1

    Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord. Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. ( Psalm 130:1-2)“Out of the Depths…” is where this Psalm commences. I have no doubt that this meditation comes to many of you, who are currently “in the depths”, due to various sorrowful and painful circumstances. We are often overwhelmed, by debt, discouragement, ill health, disappointed hope, betrayal, addiction… I could go on an on and list the many sorrows and burdens we are prone to in this sad and broken world. It feels...
  • China Adopts Trial In Absentia, in a Move Analysts Say Will Target Overseas Dissidents

    The Chinese regime’s highest court issued a detailed interpretation of a criminal procedure law on Feb. 4, stipulating that trial in absentia can be applied to defendants who “seriously endanger national security” and are based outside China, according to Chinese media reports. “Trial in absentia” refers to criminal proceedings in which a defendant is not physically present to attend said proceedings. China observers worry that the move is aimed at intimidating Chinese dissidents who live abroad. In 2018, China’s rubber-stamp legislature, the National People’s Congress, enacted amendments to its criminal procedure law to allow more courts to try people in...

    Ancient Faith Ministries ^ | October 5, 2020 | Fr. Stephen Freeman
    Some years ago I was in hospital for a time and not in the least bit happy about it. One sleepless night I was walking the halls of the unit, unable to sleep, and tempted with self-pity. I thought to myself (in rebuke), “Father Arseny endured the Soviet Gulag with more hope and patience than you’re bringing to this.” Father Arseny is the figure in the book by the same name that relates the story of an amazing Russian priest who was a true saint of his generation. My inner conversation continued, “God gave Fr. Arseny the grace to endure...

    Drug giant AstraZeneca said Tuesday it had paused global trials of its coronavirus vaccine because of an unexplained illness in one of the volunteers. It's a standard precaution in vaccine trials that is meant to ensure experimental vaccines don't cause serious reactions among participants. "As part of the ongoing randomized, controlled global trials of the Oxford coronavirus vaccine, our standard review process triggered a pause to vaccination to allow review of safety data," the company said in a statement sent to CNN. The company is testing its vaccine, called the Oxford vaccine because it was developed with Britain's University of...

    Since the virus first emerged in January around 170 vaccine candidates are now in development, with 15 already in human trials. Oxford scientists believe they have made a breakthrough in their quest for a Covid-19 vaccine after discovering that the jab triggers a response that may offer a "double defence" against the virus. The full results, published on July 20, showed that initial trials on 1,077 British adults found that the vaccine induced strong antibody and T-cell responses, which may improve further after a booster jab. The discovery is promising because separate studies have suggested that antibodies may fade away...
  • The American Company Moderna held successful trials of the vaccine against coronavirus.

    The American Company Moderna held successful trials of the vaccine against coronavirus. The results of the trial showed that the medicine does not increase the risk of the exacerbation of the infection and can protect from the Covid-19 as bioRxiv reported. The company said that during the studies, the scientists held the trial of the vaccine in mice. The rodents got different amounts of vaccine, including doses, which are considered to be not strong enough to create protective immunity. After vaccine administration, the mice were infected with the coronavirus. Related: Israel claims cyber attacks on labs that worked on vaccine...

    A just-reported Chinese study compares the clinical outcomes of COVID-19 patients treated with hydroxychloroquine with those of patients receiving standard of care. The results, alas, are disappointing.I summarized that study in my roundup yesterday of COVID-19 therapeutic research, pointing out that this randomized controlled trial of 150 patients "found no difference in the rate of viral load reduction or symptom alleviation between the group treated with hydroxychloroquine and the one that had not been." Now the University of Vermont pulmonologist Josh Farkas has published his own analysis of the results, delving more deeply into the data.The patients in both arms...

    The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome cor- onavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2/2019-nCoV) poses a serious threat to global public health and local economies. As of March 3, 2020, over 80,000 cases have been confirmed in China, including 2946 deaths as well as over 10,566 confirmed cases in 72 other countries. Such huge num- bers of infected and dead people call for an urgent demand of effective, available, and affordable drugs to control and diminish the epidemic. We have recently reported that two drugs, remdesivir (GS-5734) and chloroquine (CQ) phosphate, efficiently inhibited SARS-CoV-2 infection in...

    In a $2 billion race to find a vaccine various companies are infecting humans with Coronavirus for clinical trials. A medical research firm based in the U.K. is offering more than $4,500 to individuals willing to serve as guinea pigs and be injected with two strains of Coronavirus similar to COVID-19 in a bid to find a vaccine for the new deadly virus. In the U.S., another firm is seeking participants for a COVID-19 vaccine study, but the pay is not as high, nor as quick, nor as risky.

    Erin Gregoire crossed the finish line of the Houston Marathon, looked at her watch, and smiled. In her debut at the distance, she ran 2:42:55—well under the qualifying time of 2:45:00 she needed for the Olympic Marathon Trials. In what has become a complex case, however, Gregoire was denied entry into the Trials, because the differential between her gun time (2:54:54) and chip time (her 2:42:55) was too large. And the day of the Houston Marathon (January 19) was the final day of qualifying, so it was her last shot at getting into the race. “Obviously it was an incredible...

    And when king David came to Bahurim, behold, thence came out a man of the family of the house of Saul, whose name was Shimei, the son of Gera: he came forth, and cursed still as he came. And he cast stones at David, and at all the servants of king David: and all the people and all the mighty men were on his right hand and on his left. And thus said Shimei when he cursed, Come out, come out, thou bloody man, and thou man of Belial: The Lord hath returned upon thee all the blood of the...

    Pediatricians have to deal with all kinds of interesting situations in their daily work with children, and kids eating random objects is one of them. Children just love to stick stuff in their mouths, and while parents do their best to keep tiny toys away from eager eaters thereÂ’s always a chance that something like a Lego finds its way into the stomach of a youngster. A half-dozen pediatricians decided to see what effect, if any, a tiny yellow Lego head would have on their own bodies by volunteering to swallow them. Their findings were reported in the Journal of...

    Former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds is headed back to jail, but for a short enough time — four months — that he said hopes to be living in Africa by Christmas. “I’m done with America. I’m going to do this, and I’m going home — to Africa. … I’ve given up on America,” Reynolds told reporters after U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman sentenced him to six months imprisonment for his failure to file income tax returns. “It’s really a tragedy you’ve squandered the opportunities you’ve had and the type of person you could have been,” the judge told Reynolds. Reynolds,...

    After seeing their God-given and Constitutionally-guaranteed rights being trampled on by the over-reaching Federal alphabet agencies, people across the nation rallied to defend the rights our country was founded on. Videos on network news stations and around the internet depicted an elderly woman being thrown to the ground by law enforcement, a man being tazed repeatedly, and a “first amendment zone” set up miles away for protesters to stay out of the way of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). These citizens rightfully feared another Waco or Ruby Ridge encounter, and believed that citizens showing up in force, with cameras...
